New Congress Is Expected to Be Friendly

(Continued from Page 1)
defeated. Another incum-
bent, Rep. Marc Marks (D-
Pa.) did not seek re-election
after three terms.
The election, with Jews
winning Senate seats for
the first time in New Jersey
and Nevada and House
seats in Alabama and Vir-
ginia, demonstrated that
Jews can be elected on is-
sues that have no affect on
the Jewish community,
without their religion being
a factor in the contest.
Almost all the elections
were based on the eco-
nomic issue of support or
rejection of the Reagan
Administration's eco-
nomic policy. This
showed up in the vic-
tories of Lautenberg, a
liberal, and Hecht, a con-
servative who had
President Reagan cam-
paigning for him last
week. It also showed up
in the elections of Ben
Erdreich in Alabama, the
grandson of one of Bir-
mingham s first Jewish
settlers, and of Norman
Sisisky in Virginia, both
of whom won upset elec-
tions against Republican
Congressmen.
Lautenberg, running in
his first election, came from
way behind to defeat Rep.
Milicent Fenwick (R-N.J.).
The 57-year-old owner of
Automatic Data Processing
Co. spent millions, both to
win his surprise nomination
in the Democratic Party and
to defeat Mrs. Fenwick. He
said he had-no apologies for
this because he said his
funds counter-balanced
Fenwick's big recognition
factor. Lautenberg is hon-
orary national chairman of
the United Jewish Appeal
and is probably the first na-
tional Jewish leader to be
elected to the Senate.
The 54-year-old Hecht
also has close ties to the
Jewish community. The
operator of clothing stores
in Las Vegas, he has served
in the Nevada state senate
from 1966-1974 and is con-
sidered close to his Republi-
can colleague from Nevada,
Sen. Paul Laxalt.
The two newcomers,
along with Metzenbaum
and Zorinsky, join four
other Jews in the Senate,
now evenly divided between
four Republicans and four
Democrats. The others are
Sens. Rudy Boschwitz (R-
Minn.) and Carl Levin (D-
Mich.), whose terms expire
in 1984, and Arlen Specter

North American
Aliya Increases

NEW YORK — Aliya
from North America has in-
creased 15 percent this year
over the same nine month
period last year, according
to Moshe Shechter, director
of the Israel Aliya Center of
North America.
Through the month of
September, 1,936 people
made aliya. This figure
does not include people who
decided to make Aliya while
traveling in Israel, nor re-
turning Israelis.

( R-Pa.) and Warren Rud-
man (R-N.J.). Levin's
brother, Sander, won elec-
tion to the House in Michi-
gan's 17th District.
Four other Jews, all
Democrats, ran for the
Senate, two of them los-
ing in very close elec-
tions. Missouri State
Senator Harriet Woods
came from behind but
was unable to defeat her
Republican opponent,
Sen. John Danforth, to
become the first Jewish
woman to serve in the
Senate. In Rhode Island,
former State Attorney
General Julius Michael-
son was also defeated in a
close race with Republi-
can Sen. John Chafee.
Two other candidates
were defeated as expected.
Dr. Cyril Wecht was de-
feated by Sen. John Heinz in
Pennsylvania, and David
Levinson lost to Sen.
William Roth in Delaware.
All seven newcomers
elected to the House are
Democrats. However, the
five Republican Jewish in-
cumbents in the House were
re-elected.
There are now two Jewish
women in the House with
the election of Democrat
Barbara Boxer, a San Fran-
cisco county commissioner.
The other woman is also a
Californian, Rep. Bobbi
Fiedler, a Republican from
the Los Angeles area who
won her second term.
Two other Jewish
women, both Democrats,
were defeated. They are
Lyn Cutler, vice chair of
the national Democratic
Party in Iowa, and Beth
Bland, a mayor in the
state of Washington.
In addition to Erdreich,
Sisisky, Levin and Boxer,
the other Jewish newcom-
ers are Howard Berman and
Mel Levine, both Democrats
from California, and Larry
Smith, a Democrat from
Florida.
The Jewish incumbents
re-elected are: Anthony
Beilenson (D-Calif.), Bobbi
Fiedler (R-Calif.), Barney
Frank (D-Mass.), Martin
Frost (D-Tex.), Sam Gejden-
son (D-Conn.), Dan
Glickman (D-Kans.), Bill
Green (R-N.Y.), Benjamin
Gilman (R-N.Y.), Willis
Gradison (R-Ohio), Ken
Kramer (R-Col.), Tom Lan-
tos (D-Calif.), William
Lehman (D-Fla.), Richard
Ottinger (D-N.Y.), Benja-
min Rosenthal (D-N.Y.),
James Scheuer (D-N.Y.),
Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.),
Stephen Solarz (D-N.Y.),
Henry Waxman (D-Calif.),
Theodore Weiss (D-N.Y.),
Howard Wolpe (D-Mich.),
Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and
Sidney Yates (D-111.).
Meanwhile, most suppor-
ters of Israel in the Senate
were re-elected. Among
them was such stalwarts as
Sens. Henry Jackson (D-
Wash.), Daniel Moynihan
(D-N.Y.), Paul Sarbanes
(D-Md.), Edward Kennedy
(D-Mass.), Heinz and Dan-
forth.
In the House, Rep.
Clarence Long (D-Md.),
chairman of the House

foreign appropriations
subcommittee and a lead-
ing supporter of Israel,
was re-elected. His dis-
trict has been re-drawn,
leaving out most of the
Jewish residents who he
had long represented.
The election of Gilman, a
member of the House
Foreign Affairs Committee,
meant the defeat of another
supporter of Israel, Rep.
Peter Peyser.
Meanwhile, Rep. Paul
Findley (R-I11.), considered
the leading supporter of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization in the House,
