Reform Temples Aiding Russians

By BEN GALLOB
(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.)

Sixty percent of the 750
congregations of the (Re-
form) Union of American
Hebrew Congregations are
conducting out-reach pro-
grams to help Soviet Jewish
newcomers, with most such
congregations offering free
synagogue membership for
the first year, according to a
report by the three-year-old
UAHC task force on Soviet
Jewry.
Sisterhoods and youth
groups sponsor programs
and hospitality. One of the
most effective approaches

Finland Cites
U.S. Holocaust
olarship Fund

W YORK — The work
o an American scholarship
fund established to per-
petuate the Scandinavians'
rescue of their Jewish popu-
lations from the Holocaust
has been recognized by the
government of Finland
through an award to the
fund president.
Richard Netter, president
of "Thanks to Scandinavia,"
has been named a Knight,
First Class, of the Finnish
Order of the Lion for
humanitarian services and
the promotion of Finnish-
American relations. Netter,
together with Victor Borge,
its national chairman, was
a founder of "Thanks to
Scandinavia."

Kosher Protocol

WASHINGTON (ZINS)
— Haaretz reported that the
head of the Israeli advance
delegation which prepared
for Menahem Begin's most
recent U.S. visit almost pre-
cipitated a major Israeli
Cabinet crisis.
Ephraim Paran said that
the food served the Begin
party did not have to be
strictly kosher. Asked about
Dr. Yosef Burg, a member of
the National Religoius
Party, Paran said Burg
could eat fish.
Haaretz claims that
Paran changed his mind to
avoid a bitter reaction from
the American Jewish com-
munity.

has turned out to be crea-
tion of a permanent link be-
tween a synagogue and a
Soviet Jewish family. Social
service quickly follows a
congregation's involvement
with absorption of Soviet
Jews. This includes collec-
tion and distribution of fur-
niture and clothing, and
help in locating housing and
jobs.
The first publication is-
sued by the task force was a
Russian translation of the
"What is Reform?" issue of
the UAHC periodical,
"Keeping Posted." The most
recent task force publica-
tion is a Sabbath-eve wor-
ship service in Russian, He-
brew and English.

Jewish Births
Highest in Israel

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
Israeli President Yitzhak
Navon told a recent sym-
posium on aliya in
Jerusalem that the death
rate for the 11 million Jews
in the Diaspora is now
higher than the birth rate.
He said Israel, with only
three million Jews, has 40
percent of the Jewish births
in the world.
Navon criticized the
.ionist movement for being
proud that all major Jewish
organizations are now
ender its umbrella. He said
le larger the movement
has become, the smaller its
fulfillment.

It is a great thing, when
the cup of bitterness is
pressed to our lips, to feel
that it is not fate or neces-
sity, but divine love work-
ing upon us for good ends.
