"presume" that a child of an
intermarried couple is
Jewish if either of the par-
ents are Jewish.
The vote changes for the
Reform Movement the tra-
ditional Jewish concept of a
child being Jewish only if
the mother is Jewish or the
person undergoes formal
conversion.
The CCAR's resolution
stated:
This presumption of
the Jewish status of the
offspring of any mixed
marriage is to be estab-
lished through appropri-
ate and timely public and
formal acts of identifica-
tion with the Jewish faith
and people. The per-
formance of these
mitzvot serves to commit
those who participate in
them, both parent and
child, to Jewish life.
"Depending on circum-
stances, mitzvot leading
toward a positive and exclu-
sive Jewish identity will in-
clude entry into the Cove-
nant, acquisition of a He-
brew name, Torah study,
Bar/Bat Mitzva and
Kabalat Torah (Confirma-
tion).
"For those beyond child-
hood claiming Jewish iden-
tity, other public acts or dec-
larations may be added or
substituted after consulta-
tion with their rabbi."
The CCAR's 94th annual
convention, held in Los
Angeles, also adopted a
resolution calling on Israel
to temporarily halt its set-
tlement activity in the ad-
ministered territories in
order to encourage Jordan
to join the peace process.
The resolution stated:
"While Israel itself
must be the judge of its
own security needs, these _
decisions also have a
fundamental impact on
the moral character of
Jewish life and on the
democratic nature of the
Jewish state."
Therfore, it said, "We be-
