Asked if he disagreed with
President Reagan's advocacy of
prayer in the schools, he replied
"not necessarily." The former
NATO commander said it de-
pended on the "nature and cir-
cumstances of the approach to it
. . . I think an individual has a
right to meditate in accordance
with his own beliefs and I think
that kind of thing is appropriate
in our schools, but then again, we
have to be very, very careful not to
be dictating religious beliefs
anymore than you have to be care-
ful not to insist on the sublimation
of relgious conviction."
Haig was asked if he could see
an easing of exit visa restrictions
for Soviet Jews as a result of the
Geneva summit. It was too early
to determine, he replied.
Audience response to the Haig
remarks was favorable. Jake
Feldman of Union Lake called
Haig a friend to the Jewish people
and a "gutsy leader. He never re-
ceived the respect or credit due
him. He's done more for our coun-
try than has been acknowledged."
Robert Burk of West Bloomfield
thought the talk was "great. I felt
he was speaking from his heart
and talking as an American and
not just to a Jewish crowd."
Dr. Phillip Friedman of South-
field said he felt his remarks,
especially those favorable to Is-
rael, were "consistent with what
he's said over the years."
Golden Torah Awards were
presented at the dinner to Spencer
Partrich and Mickey Shapiro "for
their dedication to Torah educa-
tion and to the Beth Yehudah
Schools." A special gift of
$10,0000 from the Ladies of
Yeshivath Beth Yehudah was ac-
knowledged from the dais. A spe-
cial presentation was made to
David and Doreen Hermelin for
hosting a parlor meeting to bene-
fit the schools.
According to Rabbi Norman
Kahn, administrator of the
schools, the dinner was the
largest in the schools' history.
U.S. Still Pushing Talks
Between Israel, Jordan
Jerusalem (JTA) -- Assistant
Secretary of State Richard Mur-
phy will make yet another eff icilt
to get Israel and Jordan to the
negotiating table, under interna-
Murphy met with both Premier
Shimon Peres and Vice Premier
Yitzhak Shamir in Jerusalem
Friday. In a luncheon at the resi-
dence of Peres, Murphy gave him
a detailed account of the Geneva
summit. He said that in the talks,
the U.S. supported the Israeli
view that peace negotiations ac-
companied by some form of inter-
national participation cannot be a
substitute for direct negotiations.
Murphy said the Soviet view
was that Israeli-Jordanian Pales-
tinian negotiations can take place
only in the framework of an inter-
national conference, such as the
In the meeting with Shamir,
Shamir expressed disappoint-
ment that the summit did not deal
with the plight of Soviet Jewry.
Shamir also informed Murphy
that the Taba talks with Egypt
scheduled to be held in ten days in
Cairo will not be opened unless
Egypt concludes the investigation
into the Ras Burka massacre, and
the families of the victims are
In a related development,
Yoseph Yaakov, Israel's Consul
General in Washington, said that
while there has been some "fluid-
ity" in the Middle East peace
process, it has become stalled be-
cause of Jordan's unwillingness to
engage in direct negotiations with
"If you negotiate with Israel,
you are in effect recognizing Is-
rael; that's what the Jordanians
have meticulously avoided doing
and still avoid doing," he told
some 600 women attending the
biennial Joint Program Institute
of the National Council of Jewish
Women at the J.W. Marriott
Yaakov said that when the late
Egyptian President Answar
Sadat came to Jerusalem and
agreed to negotiate with Israel,
this "was not merely an ending of
a state of war, it was the open ac-
knowledgement of the legitimacy
of Israel and the right to exist as
an equal sovereign nation."
Noting that King Hussein of
Jordan has said the time is grow-
ing short, Yaakov said Hussein
should take the next step and
realize that "now is the time to sit
across the table and talk to Israel.
If you can't do that, then don't
blame the Jews for not wanting
Yaakov stressed that Israel will
never accept the Palestine
Liberaton Organization as a
negotiating partner not only be-
cause the PLO is committed to
terrorism and the destruction of
the Jewish state, but also because
it is not "the true representative
of the Palestinians." With the
Palestinians "we'll make peace if
they join the Jordanians in an act
of good will and sincere negotia-
tions," he said.
Meanwhile, Likud Cabinet
Minister Moshe Arens warned
that Peres cannot agree to an in-
ternational conference for Middle
East peace talks as long as Likud

stepped the issue, adding that "it
is premature for any candidate to
begin his preamblings."
In an interview with The
Jewish News, Haig was asked
about several issues. On church-
state separation, Haig stated:
"I think it's a very clear aspect
of the American democratic sys-
tem as foreseen by our forefathers
and the drafters of our Constiu-
tion. I believe in the application of
that and I'm not a strict recon-
structionist per se, but the essen-
tial guidelines are there and
should be preserved."
