positions and some of the
basic interests of the Jewish
community.
In France, too, Jews did
not overwhelmingly sup-
port any one candidate but
Mitterand received consid-
erable Jewish symptahy
last spring, both as a
socialist and a friend of Is-
rael. Several Jews were ap-
pointed to his cabinet, in-
cluding the most prominent
Communist minister who is
of Jewish origin.
Israel's elections also cast.
their shadow over Jews
elsewhere with Diaspora
Jewry as sharply divided
over Israel's policies as Is-
raelis. One issue that
threatened to cause nega-
tive reactions in the Dias-
pora was the demand of
religious parties for an ex-
clusively Orthodox defini-
tion of "Who is a Jew" for
purposes of Israeli law. Re-
form and Conservative
Jews (who constitute the
great majority of
synagogue-affiliated Jews
in the U.S. especially)
served notice that they
would deeply resent the im-
plementation of such legis-
lation.
Considerable concern was
expressed during the year
at the high proportion of
Jews leaving the USSRwho
did not go to Israel, as'well
as at the number of Israelis
settling elsewhere. The sub-
jects were much discussed
but little progress was made
in coming up with effective
proposals to check these
processes.
