Feldman said the Fellow-
ship was formed out of the
conviction that ordination
of women and other crucial
issues must be deliberated
through traditional
Halakhic process.
The body in Conservative
Judaism for implementa-
tion of that process is the RA
Committee on Jewish Law
and Standards, whose

chairman is Rabbi Seymour
Siegel, Ralph Simon Profes-
sor of Ethics and Theology
at the JTS. Siegel told the
JTA, after the Tuesday
vote, that "this vote will cer-
tainly influence the mem-
bers of the faculty senate to
reverse the decision last
year and approve the ad-
mission of women to the
program of ordination" at
the JTS.
Rabbi Donald Price, a
fellowship regional
chairman, told the JTA
that members of the fel-
lowship proposed that "a
nine-member panel be
commissioned by the in-
coming president to
study and evaluate the
rules and procedures of
the Committee on Jewish
Law and Standards." The
new president is Rabbi
Seymour Cohen of
Chicago, who had served
as vice president of the
RA. He succeeded Rabbi
Saul Teplitz of Wood-
mere, N.Y.
Under RA convention
rules, a minimum of signa-
tures of 10 members is re-
quired to bring to the floor
by the opening day of a con-
vention any resolution not
provisionally approved

previously by the resolu-
tions committee and sent to
RA members before each
RA convention for their
study and consideration at
the next convention. Each
convention has several ses-
sions on resolutions.
When the delegates came
to the resolutions session on
the last day of the 80th con-
vention, they were handed a
sheet of paper which in-
cluded both the texts of a
formal resolution reporting
favorably on the work of the
Committee on Law and
Standards and the proposal
from the opposition propos-
ing the nine-member panel.
Delegates then moved to
combine the resolutions by
including the call for a spe-
cial panel which would be
instructed to report back in
writing to the RA no later
than Jan. 1, 1981.
Price said a fellowship
steering committee and
national and regional
chairmen were chosen at
the initial meeting of the
fellowship and that
"many more" RA mem-
bers were expected to
join the fellowship.
He said the national
chairmen besides Rabbi
Groner are Rabbis Morris
Friedman of Valley Stream,
N.Y.; Morton Waldman of
Jackson Heights, N.Y.; and
David Algaze of Forest
Hills, N.Y.
Price also said that a

number of regional confer-
ences are being planned to
discuss ordination of women
and other issues and that
the primary goal of the fel-
lowship is "to discuss how
Halakha should develop."

Mix of Politics,
Religion Assailed

KIAMESHA LAKE, N.Y.
(JTA) — The head of the
world's Conservative rab-
binate last week assailed
the "mixing of politics and
religion" in Israel, called for
an end to the practice of
"politicizing theology" and
"theologizing politics," and
questioned the "theological
rationale" of the Gush
Emunim for creating set-
tlements on the West Bank
for ideological rather than
security considerations,
thereby causing "great di-
visions in the Jewish
world."
Rabbi Saul Teplitz, in his
presidential address to the
80th annual convention of
the Rabbinical Assembly,
was also critical of the Israel
Labor Party "for joining
hands with the National
Religious Party to pass a
law in the Knesset that
transferred the authority to
decide who can perform
Jewish marriages from the
Minister of Religious Af-
fairs to the Chief Rabbi-
nate."

Tov Award, the highest the
Orthodox community can
bestow. Rabbi Solomon
Sharfman, spiritual leader
of the Young Israel of Flat-
bush, received the UOJCA's
National' Rabbinic Leader-
ship Award "for four de-
cades of outstanding serv-
ice" to the community of
Flatbush in Brooklyn and

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations of
America (UOJCA) will
undertake an intensive
campaign to mobilize the
many top Orthodox intellec-
tuals scattered throughout
the United States who oc-
cupy positions of leadership
in the academic, profes-
sional and business com-
munities.
Julius Berman, president
of the UOJCA, told the more
than 1,000 lay and rabbinic
leaders attending the UOJ-
CA's national dinner at the
New York Hilton Monday
night that "we will organize
these individuals into a
powerful force to build Or-
thodoxy and to capture the
imaginations of over one-
half million Jewish youth
today on the college cam-
puses or now entering the
professional world.
"With their talents, ex-
perience, and numbers, we
can assure the future of
American Jewry and
change its destiny and those
individuals will undoub-
tedly help raise the stature
of Torah Judaism in this
country."

ored Marcus Katz of Mexico
