For Young Men Eight to Eighty


Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
Labor Party leadership,
constituted as an appoint-
ments committee, began the
task this week of interview-
ing aspirants for the Knes-
set on the Labor Party tic-
The committee, consist-
ing of party Chairman Shi-
mon Peres, former Premier
Yitzhak Rabin, Party Sec-
retary General Haim Bar-
ley and former president
Yitzhak Navon, met for 16
hours to receive delegations
and individuals who ex-
plained why they or their
proteges should be included
on the Labor Party list in
the July 23 elections. The
petitioners were given no
more than 15 minutes each
to present their case.
The appointments com-
mittee will select 50 percent
of the candidates. The rest
will be chosen by local
committees and various
interest groups that make
up the Labor constituency.
The committee will then es-
tablish the order in which
the candidates will appear
on the party ticket. They
will be interspersed with
candidates selected by
Mapam and the other com-
ponents of the Labor align-
ment and the final list will
be presented to the voters.
Those nearest the top are
assured election.
Maariv reported that
Navon has agreed to accept
the office of Deputy Prime
Minister and Foreign
Minister in a Labor Cabinet
headed by Peres. This was
said to have been offered as

compensation for not chal-
lenging Peres for party
leadership. Navon, who is
Sephardic, is considered one
of Labor's top vote-getters.
There was no immediate
reaction to the Maariv re-
port from former Foreign
Minister Abba Eban, who
was considered almost cer-
tain to be named Foreign
Minister in the next Labor-
led government. Political
observers believe he will be
offered another senior
Cabinet post should Labor
win the elections. Navon
this week attacked the gov-
ernment for keeping the Is-
rael Defense Force in Leba-
non. He said Israel should
be interested in "peace in
Galilee, not peace in Leba-
Labor's arch rival, Herut,
completed its ticket last
week in a complicated series
of secret ballots. The Herut
list will be combined with
those of the Liberal Party
and the other components of
Likud. One of the latter, the
small La'am faction, is al-
ready creating problems.
Veteran MK Eliezer
Shostak who is Minister of
Health, and Ehud Olmert,
one of the young generation
in Likud, are locked in a
dispute over who really
heads La'am.
At stake is the eighth spot
on the Likud list, the high-
est allotted to La'am, which
assures the candidate of
election. It is claimed by
both men. The La'am lead-
ership selected Olmert by a
30-15 majority, but only
after Shostak walked out of
the faction meeting.

Last week, former De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon
has assured an influential
spot in the Likud forums,
but was removed as an im-
mediate threat to his suc-
cessor, Moshe Arens.
Herut's central committee
listed the party order for
July 23 elections as Pr:\
Minister Yitzhak Shamii
Deputy Premier David
Levy, Arens and then Sha-
Some current Cabinet
ministers were
downgraded. Communica-
tions Minister Mordecai
Zipori was placed in 29th
position, and will drop
farther down when the
Herut list is combined with
other parties in the Likud
coalition. Transport Minis-
ter Haim Corfu was placed
in the 15th spot and Deputy
Minister of Education and
Culture Mariam Tassa-
Glazer drew the 16th spot.
Two Herut newcomers,
Cabinet Secretary Dan
Meridor and Eli Landau,
were not given positions
high enough in the list to
guarantee their election to
the Knesset.
There was some trouble
on the far right. Tzomet, the
new party founded by
former Chief of Staff Gen.
Rafael Eitan, decided
against running on a joint
list with the ultra-
nationalist Tehiya Party.
This posed a dilemma for
Eitan who was just desig-
nated No. 2 man on the
Tehiya list, following Sci-
ence Minister Yuval

Conservative rabbis urged to
restore black-Jewish ties

Kiamesha Lake, N.Y.
(JTA) — Conservative rab-
bis were urged to assume a
leadership role in develop-
ing a new black-Jewish co-
alition to combat the social,
educational and human
problems confronting the
Rabbi Arnold Goodman,
president of the Rabbinical
Assembly (RA), reminded
the delegates attending the
84th annual convention of
the RA at the Concord Hotel
in New York that "we were
in the forefront of working
with black leaders in the
`60's," recalling that in
1963,22 members of the RA
during the group's annual
convention flew to Bir-
mingham, Ala., to help
Martin Luther King fight
for equal rights.
Goodman pointed out,
"Despite the rhetoric of
Jesse Jackson and Louis
Farrakhan, there are great
historical ties between
blacks and Jews. These
must be strengthened so

that together we can realize
the full potential of Ameri-
can democracy."
Goodman, in tis address,
admonished his colleagues
for their "deafening silence"
in failing to speak out as a
body against the anti-
Semitism that has been in-
jected into the Presidential
election campaign.
He stressed that the RA
should not engage in parti-
san politics but merely
speak out on the issue.
Goodman also expressed
disappointment with the
other two Democratic
Presidential hopefuls, Wal-
ter Mondale and Sen. Gary
Hart for their failure to re-
spond forcefully to the
anti-Semitic remarks.

The Israeli Orthodox es-
tablishment was criticized
for its failure to relate to
basic moral and ethical
problems confronting
people in the Jewish state,
according to Rabbi David
Spritzer, chairman of the

RA's Israel Region.
Spritzer called attention
to the Orthodox establish-
ment's lack of response to
the recently discovered evi-
dence about organized acts
of Jewish violence against
Arabs in the West Bank.
Spritzer accused the reli-
gious establishment of
demonstrating by such a
failure to speak out as being
"more interested in political
powet and the money that
brings to the religious,
tablishment rather than the'
ultimate value of interpret-
ing moral questions in reli-
gious life."
Israel's Consul General in
New York, Naphtali Lavie,
told the delegates that his
government would take
strong action against those
found guilty of terrorism
The assembly was ex-
pected to vote this week on
admitting former Detroiter
Rabbi Beverly Magidsohn
as its first woman member.
