House OKs equal access,
school prayer measures

Washington (JTA) — Jewish
leaders reacted with shock and dis-
may to the unexpected passage last
week by the House of Representa-
tives of a measure to allow moments
of individual silent prayer in, public
schools. The measure was passed
overwhelmingly after House mem-
bers had defeated by a narrow mar-
gin a stronger Republican-sponsored
proposal to allow spoken prayer in
school classrooms, and came just one
day after the House approved "equal
access," permitting religious groups
to meet in public high schools.
The school prayer issue was
brought,up Thursday during routine
004,0, on ,a, $1.32 billion, education

package. At first, Democrats rejected
a proposal to cut off Federal funds to
any state or school district prohibit-
ing voluntary spoken prayer."
Afterwards, the House approved
legislation prohibiting a state or
school district from denying "indi-
viduals in public schools the oppor-
tunity to participate in moments of
silent prayer."
The education bill was approved
307 to 85 with the prayer amendment
attached and now goes to the Senate.
A spokesman at the American
Jewish Congress office in Washing-
ton said that "technically the bill can
go to conference now because it is
