Faction Stops
Short On Bill

Jerusalem (JTA) — The re-
ligious parties made an un-
scheduled attempt to bring the
"Who is a Jew" amendment to
the Law of Return before the
Knesset for, a vote last Thurs-
day. They pulled back when it
became apparent the measure
would be defeated — as it has
been twice before in recent
In that event, it could not be
re-introduced for six months, ac-
cording to Knesset rules, The
Orthodox bloc decided at the
last moment to shelve the bill
for the time being. Some religi-
ous MICs and lobbyists for the
Lubavitch Chasidic movement
angrily accused the Labor Party
leadership of reneging on a
promise to lift party discipline,
allowing labor MKs to vote as
they pleased.
The religious parties muster
only 12 votes in the Knesset but
they believe they can count on
religious and rightwing MKs in
other parties to support the con-
troversial measure. The
amendment to the Law of Re-
. tuin would add the phrase "ac-
cording to halacha" to the provi-
sion of the law which defines a
Jew as someone born of a
Jewish mother or converter.
If adopted, the amendment
would bar persons converted by
Conservative or Reform rabbis
abroad from automatic -citizen-
ship on arrival in Israel to set-
tle. The Conservative and Re-
form movements fiercely oppose
the amendment which they con-
sider dangerously divisive.

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel has
a new export item also useful at
home — a machine that au-
tomatically cleanses potatoes of
the mud and stones which
adhere to the tuber when it is
The machine was developed
by Ron Feller and his research
team at the Volcani Center's In-
stitute of Agriculture in Rishon
LeZion and is manufactured by
the Muran metal works. Twenty
machines have already been
sold to Holland and, 30 are on
or4r from other European
. countries.
The -machine has been de-
monstrated in Colorado which
has a large potato crop. Mud
and stone separation is a major
problem in many potato growing
regions of the U.S. The Israeli
crop is now cleansed by Feller's
machine before it is marketed.
