Toronto (JTA) — The opening
plenary of the 53rd General Assembly
of the Council of Jewish Federations
was completely disrupted last week by
40 protestors demonstrating on behalf
of Ethiopian Jewry.
Over chants of "Let Simcha
speak," a reference to Simcha
Jacobivici, producer and director of the
award-winning film, Falasha, De-
troiter Martin Citrin, CJF president,
was forced to adjourn the session be-
fore it began. Citrin's action came
after more than half an hour of uproar
that erupted as 2,000 delegates ar-
rived for the plenary that was to have
dealt with prospects and challenges for
the North American Jewish commu-
Led by Jacobovici, the demon-
strators marched in front of the dais in'
the glare of TV cameras for the Cana-
dian national networks, obviously
alerted to be there. The demonstrators
carried placards reading "action now"
and More Can Be Done" and pictures
of starving Jewish children. More than
one-quarter of the group were
Falashas, — black Jews of Ethiopia —
including several women and children
— one a tiny girl in Jacobivici's arms.
They demanded a minute of si-
lence for the 2,000 Ethiopian Jews
job in Israel?

between the ideologically opposed
partners who put . together a national
unity government little more than two
months ago as the only way to tackle
Israel's worst economic crisis and to
extricate the Israel Defense Forces
from the morass of Lebanon.
