Immersion
Protest Grows

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Ethiopian immigrant commu-
nity's week-long sit-in strike
outside the offices of. the Chief
Rabbinate Council was joined
last week by dozens of members
of the Reform Jewish commu-
nity in Israel who brought with
them food, cold drinks and flow-
ers.
Rabbi Asher Hirsch, world
secretary of the Reform move-
ment, said the fight of the
Ethiopians for equal treatment
as Jews was also the fight of the
Reform community. The immig-
rants began the sit-in strike a
week ago to protest the chief
Rabbinate's insistence that they
undergo ritual immersion, a
religious conversion rite, before
they are allowed to marry.
The Ethiopians, all devout
practicing Jews, regard this de-
mand as humiliating and insult-
ing because it questions their
authenticity as Jews. They
voted last week to continue the
strike despite appeals by Pre-
mier Shimon Peres and the Di-
rector General of the Religious
Affairs Ministry to end it.
Meanwhile, they have won an
"order nisi" from the Supreme
Court requiring the Chief Rab-
binate to show cause why the
Ethiopian immigrants must
undergo ritual conversion.
Rabbi Hirsch said, "We regard
them as Jews for all intents and
purposes. It was already decided
they are Jews. We brought them
to Israel and therefore we must
treat them as full Jews."

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel's
gross national product (GNP) for
1985 has been estimated at
$22-23 billion, with one quarter
of that going to defense and
defense-related needs, by Prof.
Eitan Berglass, a leading
economist. Prof. Burglass made
the estimate in a report to a
joint panel of the Knesset's
Foreign Affair and Security
Committee and Finafice Com-
mittee.
Prof. Berglass pointed out
that while the defense budget
itself consumes a somewhat
smaller proportion of the GNP,
that is illusory because national
defense includes many expendi-
tures which are not in the de-
fense budget. He cited several
examples. One is payments to
reserve soldiers for time spent
on active duty which is paid out
of the National Insurance Insti-
tute's budget.
Prof. Berglass noted that Is
rael also pays about $1 billion
per year in interest and princi-
pal on military assistance loans
from the United States. That
burden has been eased. In the
last two years Washington has
provided military aid to Israel
in the form of grants which are
not repayable. But Israel con-
tinues to pay back earlier mili-
tary loans.
