if the tradition of including the Jewish
National Fund in the Will of every Jew were
invariably followed, sufficient resources would
be accumulated to ensure the future of the
young Jewish State on a sound basis .of land
development, social welfare, and justice.

A bequest to the Jewish National Fund
should be as traditional as having a Blue Box
in one's home.

You may want your bequest to be
dedicated to afforestation, to a pillage, a
Nachlah, to a children's play area, to perpetual
yahrzeit or kaddish, or to some form of
permanent tribute in the names of persons
dear to you.

NEW YORK (JTA) — An
estimated 200 men and
women met Wednesday in
front of the Jewish Theolog-
ical Seminary of America in
the first lobbying effort of a
new organization which
seeks to induce the faculty
of the Conservative school
to accept women as candi-
dates for ordination.
The sponsoring organiza-
tion, the Group for the Rab-
binic Ordination of Women
(GROW), called the meeting
to demonstrate "the dis-
satisfaction" with the deci-
sion of the JTS Faculty Se-
nate "to table the issue of
women's rabbinic ordina-
tion," Simha Rosenberg, a
spokesperson for GROW,
declared. She said another
objective was "to voice
strong support for the im-
mediate acceptance of
women" by the JTS as can-
didates for ordination.
Ms. Rosenberg told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that GROW had been
started in February 1979
but had been revamped re-
cently to be more active in
advocating women's ordina-
tion and in educating Con-
servative Jews in Jewish
law and practice. She said
GROW had switched to the
more vigorous policy after
the JTS faculty postponed
last Dec. 20 by a 25-19 vote,
any action on ordination of
women.
Rabbi Seymour Siegel,
professor of theology and
ethics, and chairman of
the committee on law and
standards of the Rabbin-
ical Assembly (RA) the
association of Conserva-
tive Rabbis, told the
gathering that the "ordi-
nation of women is man-
dated and desirable ac-
cording to Jewish law,
ethics and needs."

fessor of philosophy at the
JTS, read to the assembled
group the message he said
he would present to the JTS
Faculty Senate: We ur-
gently request that the Se-
nate of the Jewish Theologi-
cal Seminary promptly re-
consider the question of or-
dination for women. More
importantly, we urge them"
to vote to "grant women the
right to serve as rabbis with
all deliberate speed."
A resolution to admit
women was approved by
delegates to the 1979 con-
vention of the RA. The dele-
gates withdrew the resolu-
tion on a pledge by Dr. Ger-
son Cohen, JTS chancellor,
to name a commission of 14
members, representing the
entire range of Conserva-
tive opinion, with himself as
chairman, to study the issue
and make recom-
mendations.
Francine Klagsbrun, a
member of the commission,
told the protest meeting
Wednesday that the move-
ment to ordain women as
rabbis was not a "fad. It is a
major social revolution. We
cannot afford to sit it out."
Ms. Rosenberg said
that the initial supporters
of GROW expect to at-
tract broad-based sup-
port nationally from the
Conservative move-
ment's rabbinate and
laity. She said GROW is
establishing a speakers
bureau and a basic re-
source library to be
available to all individu-
als and organizations in-
terested in the goals of
GROW.
She said that GROW is
planning a forum in April
and is organizing a group to
represent GROW at the
80th RA convention which
will be held in Kiamesha

Entebbe Rescue
Possibility for
Iran Hostages

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Gen.
Dan Shomron, who com-
manded the spectacular
Entebbe rescue mission in
July 1976, implied that the
American hostages, still
captive at the U.S. Embassy
in Teheran, might have
been rescued by a similar
operation.
Shomron, who spoke to
reporters in Cairo where he
is visiting as a member of an
Israeli military delegation,
said in reply to questions
that there is virtually no
hostage situation for which
a solution cannot be found.
He said this was true for
the Teheran hostages, but
there were political consid-
erations which ruled out a
military operation in their
case.
The delegation is in
Egypt to foster friendship
between the military estab-
lishments of the two coun-
tries.

Noble examples stir us up
to noble actions, and the
very history of large and
public souls inspires a man
with generous thoughts.
