Berman cites cooperation
of Reagan Administration

New York (JTA) —Julius
Berman, the outgoing
chairman of the Conference
of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organ-
izations, said Monday that
he was "very satisfied" with
the relationship the confer-
ence has maintained over
the past two years with the
Reagan Administration.
Berman, who is president
of the Union of Orthodox
Jewish Congregations of
America, said he was
equally satisfied with the
access the White House and
other Administration de-
partments provided to the
conference during his two-
year tenure as head of the
umbrella group of 38 na-
tional Jewish secular and
religious groups.
He assessed his past two
years at a press conference
at the headquarters here of
the presidents conference.
Berman, who will step down
from his post on July 1, will
be succeeded by Kenneth
Bialkin, the national
chairman of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, who was elected to a
one-year term as chairman
last week.
In assessing the confer-
ence's relationship with the
Administration, Berman
indicated that one of the fac-
tors which may have influ-
enced the Administration's
attitude was the change
from Alexander Haig to
George Shultz as Secretary
of State.
He suggested that
Shultz's role within the
Administration had some-
what muted the strength
maintained in foreign pol-
icy decisions by Defense
Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger. Shultz, he said,
- came into office with the in-
tention of tackling some of
the major foreign policy is-

Julius Berman
sues, including the Middle
East.
Berman acknowledged
that "it is no secret" that
members of the presidents
conference are divided on
certain issues. One such is-
sue, he said, was the future
status of the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. But instead of
the issues that separate the
members -of the organiza-
tion, he noted that the con-
ference maintains a consen-
sus on issues such as
Jerusalem and the PLO,
which the presidents con-
ference said the U.S. should
not hold negotiations with
until it recognizes Israel's
right to exist and accepts
UN Security Council Reso-
lutions 242 and 338.
