NEW YORK (JTA) — A
slightly larger number of
women than men are study-
ing this academic year for
the Reconstructionist rab-
binate and nearly twice as
many men as women are
studying for the Reform
rabbinate, according to a
survey by the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency.
The patterns repeat those
of the 1981-1982 academic
year when 19 women and 18
men were studying for the
rabbinate at the Recon-
structionist Rabbinical Col-
lege (RRC) and a total of 120
men and 69 women were
studying for the rabbinate
at the Hebrew Union
College-Jewihs Institute of
Religion (HUC-JIR).
The RCC, at Wyncote,
Pa., has 22 women and 20
men studying for the rabbi-
nate this academic year,
while the HUC-JIR in Cin-
cinnati has 126 men and 70
women studying for the
rabbinate.
Among the women
scheduled for ordination as
Reform rabbis from the He-
brew Union College later
this month is Southfield
resident Jill Colman Rus-
kin.

Nuclear Freeze
Drive Launched

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
A nationwide campaign to
mobilize support for ending
the nuclear arms
race was launched by the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations (UAHC), re-
presenting 760 Reform syn-
agogues in the United
States and Canada, with
publication of a 307-page
manual titled, "Preventing
the Nuclear Holocaust — A
Jewish Response."
The drive was announced
last week by Harris Gilbert
of Westfield, N.J., chairman
of the Commission on Social
Action of Reform Judaism,
at a news conference. Gil-
bert said the UAHC would
work with Catholic, Protes-
tant and other Jewish reli-
gious groups in behalf of a
"mutual, verifiable nuclear
freeze."

Group to Keep
Women as Focus
of UN Parley

WASHINGTON — Lead-
ers of 12 major Jewish
women's organizations met
in Washington last month
for a preliminary planning
meeting on the United Na-
tions End Decade Confer-
ence on Women slated to be
held in Nairobi, Kenya in
1985.
The meeting marked the
beginning of an effort by the
women's groups to see that
the conference focuses on
women's issues and is not
turned into a forum for air-
ing Middle East disputes.
At the 1980 conference in
Copenhagen and at the first
UN Conference on women
in Mexico City repeated
resolutions were introduced
equating Zionism with ra-
cism.

Overseas
calling
is getting
better by
the minute.

For example, between 3:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., the initial minute of a
direct-dialed call to Tel Aviv costs only $2.21*—additional minutes
are 80 cents* each. These same low rates apply to all other Israeli cities.
If your telephone exchange isn't presently equipped for international
dialing, you still get the same low rate on station-to-station calls placed
through an operator. Overseas dialing— it's easy...it's inexpensive...
it's fast! And the sound of your voice is so much more personal than
a letter or telegram.
Want to know more? Then dial our International Information Service
toll free: 1 800 874-4000.
