A New
Burg With
A Different
View

BY LISA HOLSTEIN

Special to The Jewish News

Jerusalem — "By appointing
me his Adviser for Diaspora Af-
fairs, Prime Minister Peres was
saying that maybe there is a
need for fresh thought, a fresh
approach, something different in
the government," says Avraham
Burg, the newest member of the
Israeli Prime Minister's group of
advisers known as "Peres' boys."
Burg, a 30-year-old sabre, is
indeed a maverick in the gov-
ernment. A dedicated social ac-
tivist, he was one of the earliest
vocal opponents of the Lebanon
War. He also spent last year
traveling, writing and lecturing
as a fellow of the New Israel
Fund, an organization which
supports Israeli projects not
generally funded by the estab-
lishment, including civil rights
organizations and Jewish-Arab
coexistence projects.
Moreover, he is the son of
Religious Affairs Minister Yosef
Burg, a man whose ideas are far
from the left end of the political
spectrum. In direct contrast to
his father, Avraham Burg advo-
cates the separation of religion
and state, the dissolution of the
religious parties, peace with
Palestinians in exchange for
territory, a 10-year freeze on
any Knesset discussion of "Who
is a Jew," and the ordination of
women rabbis.
Despite their diametrically
opposed opinions on politics and
religion, Avraham has much re-
spect and affection foe his
father. "Politics has got nothing
to do with family. A father is
not necessarily a political part-
ner," he says, adding, "I hope
that the entire Israeli society

will take up our model of shar-
ing , different opinions and set-
tling all of the disagreements in
the manner that we do in our
family. We have different opin-
ions and we are still very good
friends."
Dialogue and discussion are
Burg's approach to everything.
"I believe in pluralism and
tolerance — accepting each
other despite disagreements.
This is the way I try to work."
Burg's jurisdiction in•the gov-
ernment is extensive. "Every-
thing which is concerned either
with Jews or Judaism comes to
my desk." Such issueli include ,
Soviet Jewry, Project Renewal,
Who ) is a Jew — subjects which
Burg considers "very important
to Jewish society all over the
world."
But the burning issue for
Burg, what he considers the
major problem confronting con-
temporary Jewry, both in the
Diaspora and in Israel, is as-
similation. There is a physical
threat to the existence of the
Jewish people which is illus-
trated by the permanent state of
war in Israel and the conditions
of the Soviet Jews, he says. But
even more dangerous is the
threat to the spiritual existence
of Judaism-in Israel as well as
in the Diaspora.
While Burg admits the symp-
toms are not the same inside Is-
rael and out, ho believes "they
are symptoms for the same ill-
ness which should become the
target for a different approach
t•Q Jewish education and Jewish
priorities." In order to tackle
this spiritual crisis, a com
