Another Inauguration

lowing piece was con-

"What a Day!" pro-
claimed the headline of the
Detroit Free Press. And in-
deed, Tuesday, Jan. 20,
1981, had been a moment-
ous day: — The Inaugura-
tion of a new President of
the United States, and then
the long awaited release of
the American hostages from
Iranian captivity.
As I sat before my televi-
sion screen and watched the
swearing-in ceremony of
the new President and Vice
President, I felt a thrill of
pride in our country. This is
the way we do it here, I
thought — an orderly tran-

And then, too, we have
our checks and balances
in the government, the
Congress and the Sup-
reme Court, which will,
we hope, act as controls
on the Republicans. We,
the ordinary people, the
common citizens, have to
be ever watchful of the
actions of the people at
the head of government
in Washington and in our
own state and localities,
and let them know what

She writes that most of the
women. convert to Islam be-
cause one only needs to
make a simpler declaration
in front of a khadi (Moslem
holy man).
Miron wrote that children
of a Jewish woman and a
Moslem man are considered
Jews by the Jewish faith,
because the mother is
Jewish, and are considered
Moslem by the Islamic
faith, because the father is
Moslem.

Court Religious
Ruling Praised

NEW YORK — The
American Jewish Congress
hailed a recent decision by a
New Jersey court allowing
schools to schedule extra-
curricular activities so they
do not conflict with stu-
dents' religious practices.
The court, in reversing a
ruling by a lower court, said
that the Teaneck, N.J.
Board of Education policy of
restricting school events on
Friday nights, Saturday
and Sunday mornings "re-
presents an effort by the
board to enable its students
to participate as fully as
possible in extra-curricular
activities without infring-
ing on the religious liberties
of these students."

Bible ContestSet for Adults

Abortion Called
Late Substitute

FOREST HILLS, N.Y.
(JTA) — A New York Con-
servative rabbi has asserted
that "easy abortion" has
been "a belated substitute"
for contraception, the re-
moval "of an impediment to
easy sex" which partly re-
flected "the moral break-
down in our society."
Rabbi Ben Zion Bokser,
rabbi of the Forest Hills
Jewish Center, made that
evaluation in response to a
letter from a woman con-
gregant, who wrote she was
"baffled" by the paucity of
reaction to the issue in the
Jewish community.

Contestants can partici-
pate in the English version
or Hebrew version of the
contest.
To enter, by Feb. 20, send
your name, address and
telephone number to Dr.
Moshe Avital, coordinator,
National Committee for the
Fifth International Bible
Contest for Adults, 515
Park Ave., New York, N.Y.
