active in behalf of Shaare
Zedek Hospital in
Jerusalem, where he and
his wife established a room
in memory of their daughter
Rose Raskin; the United

lem, and the Technion in
Haifa. With his wife, Mr.
Nosanchuk established a
dormitory room and a
classroom at Bar-Ilan Uni-
versity and the Raskin Free

Judge Invokes New Law
to Bar New York Autopsy

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
New York State Supreme
Court Justice accepted a
contention last week that a
new state law curbing the
power of medical examiners
to perform autopsies over
religious objections, which
is not yet in effect, neverthe-
less represents public policy
by virtue of passage. On
that basis, he barred an au-
topsy on an Orthodox
Jewish woman, a Jewish
legal aid society official re-
ported.
Judge Irving Green, sit-
ting in State Supreme Court
in Goshen, N.Y. last Wed-
nesday, issued the order
barring an autopsy on a
66-year-old patient in the
State Psychiatric Hospital
in Middletown, N.Y.
Dennis Rapps, executive
director of the National
Jewish Commission on Law
and Public Affairs

Take Me Out to the Ballgame'

(COLPA), said the woman,
a long-time resident of the
faciliity, was found dead
Tuesday in her room at the
hospital with no outward
indication as to the cause of
death.
Rapps said that Roy Lip-
pincott, the coroner in
Orange County, in which
Goshen and Middletown are
located, informed the family
of the dead woman that, be-
cause there was no readily
apparent cause of death, he
was required. to perform an
autopsy.
Rapps said that present
state law generally provides
for the performance of au-
topsies when that is "neces-
sary" to determine the
cause of an "unexplained
death."
But the new law, signed
by Governor Mario Cuomo
on Aug. 10, provides that if
there is conscientious public
objection by next of kin or
"friend" of the dead person,
the coroner may not per-
form an autopsy unless
there is "a compelling pub-
lic necessity."

JAFFA (JNI) — A sum-
mer work camp sponsored
by the local Jewish-Arab
Action Committee drew
nearly 100 volunteers each
day during a two-week
period, according to Amos
Gvirtz of Kibutz Shefayim.
The group of volunteers,
which included Jews, Is-
raeli Arabs and people from
abroad, swept streets and
playgrounds, painted mur-
als and repaired flats be-
longing to disadvantaged
families in Jaffa.

Former Chinese Synagogues
May Be Historic Landmarks

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Shanghai, the haven for
25,000 Jews fleeing Nazi
Europe during World War
II, is expected to designate
former synagogues as his-
toric landmarks, it was re-
vealed by Rabbi Arthur
Schneier, president of the
Appeal of Conscience Foun-
dation, on his return from a
study mission to China.
Schneier, senior rabbi of
Park East Synagogue in
Manhattan, said that an in-
terfaith delegation of the
foundation which he led in
China had met with Shan-
ghai's Deputy Mayor, Li
Zhao Ji.
The Shanghai official re-
sponded favorably to the
delegation's request that
several of the former
synagogues be given land-
mark status, Schneier said.
The buildings are now being
used for industrial, com-
mericial and educational
purposes, he said.
The delegation visited
the former Jewish
cemetery in Shanghai
and Schneier recited
Kadish there. The cemet-
ery was demolished dur-
ing the cultural revolu-
tion in the late 1960s, the
delegation was told. The
former Jewish chapel is
now a tea house and the
cemetery has been con-
verted into a park and
children's playground.
Schneier said there
were no practicing Jews in
Shanghai or in China today.
Some families such as those
with the names Li, Chi,
Kao, Zhao, Jin, Zhang and
Shi claim descent from the
now vanished Jewish com-
munity of Kaifeng, site of a
Jewish colony established
in the 12th Century,
Schneier noted. However,
he added, "none practice
