New York (JTA) — Orthodox
Jewish leaders this week deplored
the defeat in the Knesset of an
amendment to the Law of Return.
The proposed measure would
have added the words "according
to Halachah" to define who is a
The Orthodox leaders also
sharply criticized American
Jewish religious secular leaders
who called upon Israeli politicians
to reject the amendment.
The controversial proposition,
which would have invalidated
conversions performed by non-
Orthodox rabbis in Israel and
abroad, was defeated by a vote of
62-51 on its first reading in the
Knesset last Wednesday. The
Law of Return currently defines a
Jew as a person born of a Jewish
mother or converted.
The Agudath Israel of America,
in a statement made over the
weekend, said that the issue is
not"Who is a Jew" but "Who is a
Convert." The proposed amend-
ment "would have ensured that
all who enter Israel under the
conversion provision were in fact
converted in a manner acceptable
to all Jews," Agudath Israel said.
Its statement declared: "Let the
halachic standpoint be crystal
clear. All Jews born of a Jewish
mother, whether they are obser-
vant of Orthodox Jewish practice
or not, and regardless of how they
label themselves, are fully mem-
bers of the Jewish people. As for
acceptance of outsiders into the =(
ranks of Jewry, conversion ac-
cording to Halachah has always c
been the single acceptable means
for a non-Jew to become part of
the Jewish nation."
Agudath Israel, in criticizing <
the American Jewish non-
Orthodox leaders, said it was
"shocked and deeply troubled" by
a joint statement they issued last
week which said that the proposed
change in the Law of Return
"would do violence to the principle
of Jewish unity and jeopardize the
sense of solidarity that binds the
Jewish people everywhere to the
State of Israel."
In response, Agudath Israel
said that these leaders are "prom-
oting the fragmentation" of the
Jewish people by "seeking to
legitimize a multiplicity of
standards in the place of one defi-
nition of Jewishness that 'was
universally accepted by Jews
through the ages."
In another response to the de-
feat of the proposed amendment to
the Law of Return, the Orthodox
Coalition for the Sanctity of Israel
declared in a statement that "all
