Coptic Leader Visits Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Patriarch Tekle Haimanut,
the leader of the Ethiopian
Orthodox (Coptic Christian)
Church, is in Israel.
The official occasion of
the visit was to celebrate
the Easter holiday, but he is
expected to deal with the
longstanding controversy
between -the Ethiopian
Church and the Egyptian
Coptic Church over the con-
trol of two chapels in a
monastery near the Church
of the Holy Sepulchre in the
Old City. -
There is little chance that
Haimanut will be able to re-
.olve the dispute during his
visit since the Israeli gov-
ernment is under heavy
pressure from Egypt to
grant it control over the
chapels.
A special ministerial
committee which was set
up in Jerusalem 10 years
ago to deal with the issue
is still working on it.
Haimanut is scheduled to
meet with Israeli leaders,
including President Yit-
zhak Navon.
This is the first visit by an
Ethiopian leader since
Ethiopia severed diplomatic
relations with Israel in 1973
following the Yom Kippur
War.
Upon his arrival in Israel,
the Patriarch told reporters
that the condition of the
Falashas, Ethiopian Jews,
is as "good as the condition
of other minorities in
Ethiopia." He refused to
elaborate. There are some
25,000 Falashas in
Ethiopia, and so far there is
no progress in security their
emigration to Israel.
(Last November, at the
General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Feder-
ations in Montreal, Yona
Bogale, the leader of the
Ethiopian Jewish com-
munity for the last 50
years, who was allowed
to leave his native land
less than three weeks ear-
lier, told the assembled
Jewish leaders: , _2. ____
("We were once 250,000

people. Now we are less
than 25,000. Time is
against us. Every year,
every month, every day we
lose our young people to
war, to discrimination
and to persecution. We can-
not sustain much more such
loses and if the Jewish-
people in America and
throughout the world and in
Israel do not act quickly to
help us come to Israel, then
God forbid that perhaps in
five or 10 years we might
disappear.")

Hadassah Denies Link to Hebron

NEW YORK (JTA) —
References in stories from
Israel referring to a group of
Kiryat Arba women squat-
ters in a Jewish-owned
building in Hebron as
"Hadassah women" is in
correct, a spokesperson for
Hadassah stated.
No members of that
organization are participat-
ing in the Hebron sit-in. In
addition, the building
which is frequently referred
to as the "Hadassah hospi-
tal" or the "Hadassah
clinic" is not and never was

"It was a building in
which Hadassah rented
space for a clinic."

ing with Jewish emigration
to the United States,
"Jewish Frontiersmen,"
published by the Jewish
Historical Society of South
Florida, tells the story of
Jews who settled in the

Century rather than the

)ooklet gives among other
things, the details of how

tains some 30 photographs
