dling reservations for the con-
ference, summed up the benefits
of attending in this way: "You
meet people, you make friends.
It strengthens your commit-

ment."

Boosting that commitment to
Jewish communal service, after
all, is the whole reason the
Young Leadership Cabinet and
the Young Women's Leadership
Cabinet got started. The Wash-
ington conference "is a tremen-
dous leadership tool," alter said.
"For anyone who has gone in
the past, it has been a real
Jewish turn-on. 'It gets people
motivated in going back the
next time.l! ❑

to develop a sense of Jewish
cameraderie on a national
level," said Alter. "They see how
many other people there are
around the country that are
similarly minded, who are in-
terested in getting active in „(the
same) Jewish sorts of activities."
The person-to-person aspect
also is significant for Marcy
Feldman: "It's exciting that we
are meeting people of our own
age from all over the country.
We see that we can make a dif-
fernce in the American political
system as Jews. As we share
ideas' from other communities,
we see that we have the same
concerns. We come away having
made new friendships with
people from all over the country,
and we know we will have that
network for the rest of our
lives."
She added that there are a
number of people looking for-
ward to renewing old acquain-
tances at the conference. These
participants from different
states may have met one an-
other at past UJA events, per-
haps on a mission overseas, and
the bi-annual conference is a
good way to come together.
Along with the weightier ses-
sions, several social events are
planned in Washington. A large
crowd is expected to attend the
Sunday night singles party,
hosted by Senator Rudy Bos-
chwitz' of Minnesota and Con-
gressman Larry Smith of
Florida. Feldman said she
knows of a couple who met at
the conference four years ago
and today are married and have
a child. She noted that the con-
ference draws "tons of singles
and tons of married people, too."

Jerusalem (JTA) — The re-
sounding defeat sustained by
the "Who is a Jew" amend-
ment to the Law of Return in
the Knesset last week — its
third defeat in recent years —
was a major disappointment to
the religious parties which had
forced the issue once again to
the Knesset floor.
The • fiercely controversial
measure was overwhelmed by
a 61 to 47 vote, with two
abstentions, a far larger mar-
gin of defeat than its sponsors
had expected. 'The Orthodox
Morasha party was embittered
by the failure of many Likud to
support the amendment.
The disappointment of Shas,
a member of the unity coalition
government, was muted. The
four Mks of that ultra-Ortho-
dox faction apparently do not
consider the defeat a reason to
create a crisis with Likud or
within the coalition.
The Orthodox parties have
been pressing the Who is a Jew
amendment for years. It would
define a Jew as anyone born of
a Jewish mother or converted

to Judaism "according to hal-
acha." The addition of the last
three words is the source of the
conflict for it would in effect in-
validate conversions performed
outside Israel by other than
Orthodox rabbis. The amend-
ment has been forcefully op-
posed in Israel and by the
Reform and—Conservative
brandies of Judaism in the
U.S.
