Senate OKs Klutznick Linowitz

WASHINGTON — In
separate actions this week
the U.S. Senate approved
President Carter's selec-
tions of Sol Linowitz as the
U.S. special ambassador to
the Middle East and Philip
Klutznick as U.S. secretary
of commerce.

Klutznick was approved
on a unanimous 74-0 vote

and is expected to be sworn
in Jan. 7. The full Senate
quickly approved his ap-
pointment after the Senate
Commerce Committee ap-
proved the appointment
without dissent.
Klutznick took a leave of
absence last month as
president of the World
Jewish Congress after his
appointment was an-

Orthodox Factions
Fighting in Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Unprecedented violence at
a meeting of Agudat Israel's
central committee Sunday
night has deepened disputes
within the Orthodox com-
munity and cast a question
mark over the holding of its
"Kenesia Gedola" — a mas-
sive international gather-
ing of activists — scheduled
for Jerusalem in early
January.
Shlomo
Knesseter
Lorincz, who was the near-
victim of 100 enraged Ger-
rer Hasidim at the meeting
Sunday night, threatened
Monday that he and his
"Zeiri Aguda" faction would
boycot the Kenesia."
Aguda sources told JTA
Monday that Lorincz's men-
tor, Rabbi Eliezer Shach,
the rosh yeshiva of Poeveh
would not attend the
kenesia.
Lorincz escaped un-
scathed from the Sunday
night melee. The Gerrers
had come from their
Ashdod community with
the avowed purpose of
demanding Lorincz's
ouster and breaking up

the central committee
meeting, at which the Is-
raeli delegates to the
kenesia were to have
been nominated.
The Gerrers are offended
by two recent interviews
given by Lorincz:
• In the Tel Aviv maga-
zine "Monitin" the Knesse-
ter gave a wide-ranging
interview to Nahum Barnea
on Aguda politics. The of-
fense was not what Lorinz
said, but that the interview
appeared alongside "las-
civious" photographics of
women in "inappropriate
attire."
• More serious from the
Gerrers' point of view was
Lorinz's interview in
Haaretz in which he agreed
to the questioner's state-
ment that the standards of
the Aguda "Council of
Sages" had dropped. He also
seemed, according to the
Gerrers, to be less than
entirely respectful towards
their Rebbe, Simha Bunim
Alter.
The Gerrers are the
strongest faction numer-
ically within Aguda and
their rebbe is the
strongman on the Coun-
cil of Sages.
Lorincz protested in a
radio interview Monday
that he had never heard of
Monitin and certainly did
not know it purveyed "las-
civious material." He was
acquanted with the inter-
viewer, Davar's Knesset
lobby correspondent.
As to the Haaretz inter-
view, Lorincz said all Or-
thodox people agree that the
level of the rabbinate was
steadily falling since the
days of the Talmud and the
Babylonian gaonim. "The
rabbis of previous genera-
tions were greater than
those of our generation,"
Lorincz said. "No one can
deny that." This did not
mean any lack of honor or
respect for the present rab-
binical leadership, he said.
The kenesia gedola is in-
tended as a massive show of
strength for Aguda, trium-
phant after forcing the
abortion amendment
through the Knesset.
Thousands of delegates
from the U.S. and Europe
will attend and Premier
Menahem Begin is to speak
on the closing night.

finds his studies as difficult
as iron it is because his
teacher does not take the
proper attitude towards
him.

nounced. At age 72 he will
be the oldest member of
Carter's Cabinet.
Linowitz was con-
firmed by the Senate on a
vote of 80-13. The dissent-
ing votes were cast by
Republicans unhappy
with his role in negotiat-
ing the Panama Canal
treaties.
Linowitz was nominated
by Carter to replace Robert
Strauss, who now heads the
President's re-election
campaign.
