Adopted Jew
Petitions Court

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A 58-year-old
Haifa resident who said he was
born to Jewish parents but
adopted by a Christian woman at
the age of one month has
petitioned the Rabbinical Court to
be declared a Jew.
Yusef Shufani said his parents
were born in Germany and di-
vorced when he was a month old.
His father returned to Germany
and his destitute mother gave him
into the care of a Catholic lay nun.
The nun, Animeh Shufani, at
that time the headmistress of a
Haifa Arab school, had him bap-
tized as a Christian.
She moved with him to Jordan
some time later, staying there
until he was 12 years old, when
they returned to Haifa.
He first learned he was a Jew
while in Jordan, as his playmates
laughed at his circumcision and
his mother told him about his par-
entage when he queried her.
Shufani said he believes his
real name is Belgond. His wife is a
Christian Arab and they have six
children, including a son now
serving in the IDF paratroops.
Shufani said on Israeli televi-
sion yesterday that his wife would
remain a Christian if the rabbi-
nate agreed to allow him to recon-
vert to Judaism.
"We are a free-thinking family
and I forsee no family problems. I
myself tend toward returning to
Orthodox Judaism," he said.

Rome (JTA) — The World Con-
ference for Religion and Peace
(WCRP) focussed on the Middle
East during a three-day meeting
of its European section in Paris
Nov. 15-17. The Italian delega-
tion reported on its return here
that a special commission was set
up to consider how religious lead-
ers, groups and individuals can
work to help achieve a lasting
peace in that region.
The meeting produced a work-
ing paper meant to serve as a
guideline or the continental,
regional and antional groups,
affiliated with the conference to
"develop action on an interreli-
gious basis."
The WCRP, founded in 1970, is
a category II non-governmental
organization associated with the
United Nations Economic and So-
cial Council (UNESCO). It has
branches all over the world and
offices in New York and Geneva.
The document that came out of
the Paris meeting makes clear
that the WCRP is a religious,
non-political body of people "who
feel anxiety at the duration of a
state of violence in the Middle
East." It warned that "the conflict
between Arabs and Israelis,
nourished by other local conflicts,
could spark a global fire . . . The
task of our conference is not to
take the place of political leaders
but to communicate essential
