Law Of Return
Split Widens

) Jerusalem (JTA) — The sharp
differences in the American
Jewish community over a pro-
posed amendment to the Law of
Return erupted in Jerusalem
last week as American Jewish
religious leaders and heads of
Jewish organizations took time
out from the deliberations of the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organ-
izations to state their cases in
two separate press conferences.
The Conservative and Reform
\leaders who oppose the change,
'called on the leaders of Israel
"to reject the demand for a
change in the Law of Return."
In a statement signed by 17
leaders of Reform and Conserva-
tive affiliation, they said:
"The self-serving demands of
one group of Jews that they be
recognized as the sole interpret-
ers of the Jewish religion — and
specifically that their authority
to determine the legitimacy of
conversions performed outside
Israel be spelled out in the secu-
lar Law of Israel — is morally
and religiously unacceptable to
us. It is contrary to the interests
and welfare of world Jewry. The
proposed change in the Law of
Return will do harm to the prin-
ciple of Jewish unity and
i jeopardize the sense of solidarity
that binds the Jewish people
everywhere to the State of Is-
rael."
At a separate press confer-
ence, leaders of six Orthodox
Jewish groups declared in a
joint statement that they reject
the recent proposal of Prime
Minister Shimon Peres to freeze
the issue of "Who is a Jew" for a
\_ period of ten years, and not to
bring it to a vote in the Knesset.
