Reconstructionist Panel Urges Temples
to Warmly Welcome Intermarrieds

KIAMESHA LAKE, N.Y.
(JTA) — A Reconstruc-
tionist panel on mixed mar-
riages agreed over the
weekend that, with some 40
percent of all Jewish mar-
riages involving non-Jews,
it was urgent that the or-
ganized Jewish community
warmly welcome intermar-
ried couples and urge them
to become active members
of the Jewish community.
The discussion was a fea-
ture of the 22nd annual
L - convention of the Federa-
jon of Reconstructionist
/— Congregations and
Havurot, and the Jewish
Reconstructionist Founda-
tion, attended by 155 dele-
gates.

MONTICELLO, N.Y.
(JTA) — In the wake of the
"new reality" that has
emerged in the Middle East
with the Israeli invasion
into Lebanon and the sig-
nificant military setback to
the Palestine Liberation
Organization, Thomas
Dine, executive director of
the American Israel Public
Affairs Committee, said the
U.S. should now press Saudi
Arabia and Jordan to par-
ticipate in direct negotia-
tions with Israel.

Let your gift dollar do the most

ternational pressure is
mounting for the removal of
all military presence from
the country — Syrian as
well as Israeli," Dine de-
clared in an address to the
600 delegates who attended
the four-day 73rd annual
convention of Bnai Zion last
weekend.
Dine urged the simulane-
ous withdrawal of Israel
and Syrian forces and the
introduction of "a true
peacekeeping force" to pre-
vent the PLO from reform-
ing as a military power.
This presence he suggested,
could be either a strong
Lebanese force patrolling a
widened buffer zone be-
tween Israel and Lebanon, a
multinational peacekeep-
ing unit or an apolitical
force.
Also hailing the oppor-
tunity which has arisen
from the Israeli opera-
tion was Dr. Joseph
Sternstein, president of
the American Zionist
Federation, who said at
the opening session that
the Reagan Administra-
tion could now launch a
new effort to promote
peace, security and sta-
bility in the Middle East.
Sternstein hailed the
opportunity which he said
had been created by Israel's
Defense Force to restore
Lebanon's sovereignty and
territorial integrity.
Declaring that the PLO
"must not be permitted to
re-establish itself," Sterns-
tein said, "we call upon the
United States not to pres-
sure Israel into withdraw-
ing from Lebanon until
guarantees to Israel's secu-
rity and Lebanon's sover-
eignty and freedom are ar-
ranged and implemented
through a multinational
peace keeping force with
strong United States par-
ticipation:"

Dr. Carl Sheingold,
executive diredtor of the
National Havura Coodinat-
ing Committee and a
sociologist, said that
spouses converting to
Judiasm in an intermar-
riage are often more deeply
interested in Judaism and
Jewish affairs than the
families into which they
marry. He said most Jews in
mixed marriages "do want
to remain Jewish" and that
"when the Jewish spouse
wants to raise his or her
children as Jews, that is
how they are raised."
He asserted that one-
third of those non-Jews who
marry Jews and then con-
vert make the decision after
the marriage rather than
before.
He said he opposed
Jewish efforts to prevent
mixed marriages through
"separation and segrega-
tion," urging that, instead,
