"The change in the Law of
Return would do violence to
the principle of Jewish
unity and jeopardize the
sense of solidarity that
binds the Jewish people
everywhere to the state of
Israel," the joint statement
declared.

"In deciding whether a
conversion performed in
the Diaspora is or is not
authentic — basing their
opinion not on how the
conversion' was per-
formed, but on who per-
formed it — the Israeli
rabbinate and, if they

CINCINNATI — The
public-parochial "shared
time" program im-
plemented by the Grand
Rapids school district viol-
ates the First Amendment
of the Constitution, a fed-
eral appeals court ruled last
week.
The program, which state
and local officials claim has
saved taxpayers millions of
dollars, • blurs the distinc-
tion between governmental
and religious activities, ac-
cording to the Sixth U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals.

Under the "shared time"
system, public school
teachers offered courses to
parochial students in Grand
Rapids. The courses were
taught in classrooms in
Catholic, Christian • or
Lutheran schools.
