Autopsy Issue
Angers Agudath

NEW YORK — The lead-
ership and rank and file
members of Hadassah in the
United States were called
upon to join in the battle to
stop the Hadassah Hospital
in Jerusalem from perform-
ing autopsies without per-
mission of next of kin.
This call, issued to
Hadassah president Mrs.
Bernice Tannenbaum by
the president of Agudath Is-
rael of America, Rabbi
Moshe Sherer, followed the
controversy raised when the
Hadassah Hospital per-
formed an autopsy on a
young yeshiva student,
Yehoshua Sloma, who had
been murdered by Arab ter-
rorists in Hebron, and then
transplanted his kidney to
an anti-Jewish Arab youth.
The Hadassah Hospital
authorities said that they
abided by current Israeli
law which permits autop-
sies without the family's
permission when
authorized by three doctors.
Agudath Israel in Israel
has now accelerated its
campaign to encourage the
Begin government to fulfill
its coalition agreement to
pass new legislation which
would allow autopsies only
when authorized by next of

Egyptian's Words
Not State Policy

CAIRO (ZINS) — Egypt
assured Israel through an
unofficial channel that re-
cent anti-Israel statements
by a senior Egyptian official
reflected only his personal
opinion and not state policy.
The assurance was carried
by the weekly magazine Oc-
tober, whose editor, Anis
Mansour, is one of President
Anwar el-Sadat's closest
presidential adviser with
the rank of deputy prime
minister, said in a Kuwaiti
newspaper interview last
month that the "demi-state
of Israel" was approaching
its end.
"We have taken the mat-
ter to the highest sources,
who commented that el-
Tohamy's statements re-
flect his own personal
view," October said.

Jewish Concerns
Are Unchanged

The major concerns of
American Jewry in the
mid-1960s will remain the
major concerns in the 1980s
but two new issues have
been added, according to
Bnai Brith task force re-
ports in 1966 and 1979.
The key concerns ex-
pressed in 1966, the date of
the first study, and in 1979
remain, in order, Jewish
survival, anti-Semitism
and related concerns, and
relationship to Israel.
The latest survey reflects
equal concern over the dis-
integration of the Jewish
family and about the effec-
tiveness of the organized
Jewish community, two
