Bar-Ilan Will Aid Handicapped Families

RAMAT GAN — The De-
partment of Psychology at
Bar-Ilan University is pilot-
ing a project funded by the
Doron Foundation for Edu-
cation and Welfare in which
the parents of mentally-
handicapped children are
being taught to cope with
their children within the
family-home environment.
The project is headed by
Bar-Ilan Prof. Solly Katz
and Dr. Shlomo Kravetz,
who explain the rationale:
The birth of a mentally-
handicapped child is a
traumatic experience for
the family and for the rela-
tionship between its mem-
bers. It creates problems

that exacerbate the general
problems and tensions
found in any family and
calls for specific interven-
tion techniques and exper-
tise.
"At present there is a
dearth of services and
professionals capable of
providing this sorely
needed counselling serv-
ice to parents."
The Bar-Ilan project, the
first of its kind in Israel, is
composed of three parts, all
taking place simultane-
ously. The first stage in-
volves the setting up of spe-
cialist groups for parents
where they are taught skills
such as infant-stimulation

celerating the child's de-

U.S. Jewish Groups Testify
Against School Prayer Issue

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Jewish groups were unani-
mous in their testimony be-
fore the Senate Judiciary
Committee recently that a
proposed bill to amend the
Constitution to allow
prayer in the public schools
constitutes a threat to reli-
gious minorities and would
be a violation of the First
Amendment of the Con-
stitution if it passed.
Among those testifying
for the Jewish groups were
Leonard Steinhorn, pre-
senting the testimony of
Warren Eisenberg, director
of the International Council
of Bnai Brith, who was un-
able to testify because of ill-
ness; Sam Rabinove, direc-
tor of the legal affairs de-
partment of the American
Jewish Committee; Esther
Pryor, Capitol Committee
chairwoman of the National
Council of Jewish Women;
Rabbi Bruce Kahn, Union of
American Hebrew Congre-
gations; and Rita Salberg,
Bnai Brith Women Public
Affairs Committee.
Eisenberg's statement
pointed out that legalizing
organized voluntary prayer
in public schools, an
amendment supported by
President Reagan, would
"strike at the very heart of
our Constitution and our
democratic, pluralistic
society."
Eisenberg asked, "Who
will decide the content of
the prayer" and whether
it was possible to develop
a prayer that "would not
offend a particular reli-
gious minority, if the
amendment is passed?"

Eisenberg also stated
that second amendment ap-
proving silent prayer, as
proposed by Sen. Orrin
Hatch (R-Utah), is "no less
threatening" and that the
difference between the two
amendments is "spurious."
Eisenberg stressed that it is
not the state's role to
"legitimize any form of wor-
ship or to impose it on its
citizens."
Concerning a third pro-
posal for an amendment,
also proposed by Hatch, to
give religious groups the
same access to school
facilities that secular
groups have, Eisenberg said
the government would
thereby "implicitly accept
religious groups as having a
legitimate place in the
schools."
Salberg said that there is
surely a place for prayer in
children's lives and "that
place is the home; in the
church, synagogue, mosque,
and many places — but not
in our public schools." She
stated that her group's posi-
tion is that it would "be bad
government policy, bad
religious practice and bad
educational programming."

Named to Unit
on Reform Ties

NEW YORK — The Rab-
binical Council of America
(Orthodox) has appointed
sociologist Dr. Chaim I.
Waxman as a consultant to
its special commission on
re-evaluating RCA partici-
pation with the Reform
movement.
In making the an-
nouncement that Dr. Wax-
man would join the commis-
sion headed by honorary
president of the RCA, Rabbi
Sol Roth, Rabbi Gilbert
Klaperman noted that the
RCA is "finding it more dif-
ficult to maintain its rela-
tionship with the Reform
movement, which has
passed a resolution saying
that the Jewish identity of a
child can be determined by
patrilineal descent."
