`Understanding Needed
Between U.S. Jews, Israelis'

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
Rep. Larry Smith (D-Fla.),
who returned here last
week from a meeting in Is-
rael of American and Israeli
young Jewish leaders, said
there is a need for American
Jews and Israelis to learn
more about each other.
"We are as naive about
them as they are about us,"
said Smith, who was one of
the two Congressmen who
participated in the first
World Assembly of Young
Jewish Leadership as part
of the United Jewish Appeal
Young Leadership Cabinet.
The other Congressman
was Rep. Dan Glickman
(D-Kan.).
Speaking in his Capitol
Hill office last Friday,
Smith said the Israeli and
American Jews had 31/2 days
of "gut-wrenching" dis-
cussions of the issues. He
said it was agreed that there
had to be a continuing
dialogue with more input by
Diaspora Jews and more Is-
raelis visiting the United
States so that they could
"understand how things op-
erate here."

said the Americans particu-
larly objected that every-
thing in the two institutions
was politicized an argued
there was a need to de-
politicize them.
The Israelis stressed the
need for Jewish education
and particularly the learn-
ing of Hebrew in the Dias-
pora, Smith said. He noted
that in reply the Americans
expressed concern about the
secularism of Israeli
society, on the one hand,
and the dominance of Or-
thodox Jewry on the other.
But Smith warned that
"we tend to look at their
problems with our solutions
and that is unfair." He said
American Jews must
understand more the "pres-
sures" of Israeli society.

Before going to Israel,
Smith and Glickman met
with Egyptian President
Hosni Mubarak in. Cairo.
Smith said he corrected
some of the "mispercep-
tions" that Mubarak
seemed to have about the
new United States-Israeli
agreement on strategic
cooperation.

He said he assured
Mubarak that the agree-
ment would have no effect
on United States-Egyptian
relations nor will it mean
any reduction of U.S. aid to
Egypt.
