statement- from
Jerusalem where he is
presently meeting with
the leaders of Israel's
Conservative movement,
Mesorati. "It is time that
Israel bases its recogni-
tion on the procedure fol-
lowed in marriage and
conversion rites, rather
than the identity of the
persons performing

those rites, so long as the
rabbi is duly ordained by
a recognized religious
body," Rabinowitz said.
He predicted that "Con-
servative as well as Reform
rabbis who now suffer the
same rejection, even though
their services are performed
in accordance with the pro-
cedures defined by halakhic
traditions, will ultimately
benefit from the courageous
initiative taken by Israel's

Reform rabbis."
The Supreme Court's
order was also applauded in
a statement issued by Ger-
son Cohen, Chancellor of
the Jewish Theological
Seminary of America, and
signed by senior officials of
the Seminary and the Con-

Goren Angers
Danish Jews

LONDON — Israel Chief
Rabbi Shlomo Goren has
angered the 8,000 Jews of
Denmark by stepping into a
local dispute.
According to the London

Jewish Chronicle, the dis-
pute centers on members of
the Board of Deputies of
Danish Jews Asking two
members of its Board of
Representatives to resign.
At the urging of those
members, Rabbi Goren
declared that Denmark's
Chief Rabbi, Bent Mel-
chior, is not recognized
by Israel's Chief Rabbi-
nate as Orthodox.
The Danes retorted that

their Chief Rabbi was or-
dained by Britain's Chief
Rabbi, Sir Israel Brodie,
and this authorization is
broadly recognized. The
angry Board of Deputies
challenged Rabbi Goren for
being drawn into a local
quarrel which "until now
has not involved religious
