Reform Zionist Blasts
Orthodox Elements

Toronto (JTA) — There are
certain elements in Orthodox
Jewry in Israel that are flouting
halacha and trying to "emascu-
late" the Law of Return, one of
the world's leading Reform
Zionists told delegates to the
World Union fel- Progressive
Judaism (WUPJ) convention
here recently.
Rabbi Roland Gittelsohn, the
founding president of ARZA —
the Association of Reform Zion-
ists of America — unleashed a
stinging attack on certain Or-
thodox branches for trying to
"disenfranchise" Reform
Judaism in Israel and around
the world.
Gittelsohn, now Rabbi Emeri-
tus of his Boston congregation,
told delegates at a session set
aside for Reform Zionists that
the Law of Return, which auto-
matically makes Jews citizens
when they immigrate to Israel,
is being "flagrantly violated day
by day" by much of Orthodoxy
in Israel.
"Twice a year, virtually
without exception, a bill is in-
troduced in the Knesset to rede-
fine who is a Jew. They have
been introduced and defeated"
with the help of non-Orthodox
groups, Gittelsohn said.
In February, the Knesset
defeated such a bill, introduced
by religious parties, by a 61 to
47 vote. The bill sought to
redefine Jewish identity to ex-
clude anyone converted by a
non-Orthodox rabbi.
Gittelsohn cited one example
of how the Law of Return is be-
ing abused. He recalled the case
of Shoshanna Miller, a Colorado
woman who was converted by a
Reform rabbi. The process took
many years and when she finish-
ed, Miller became a part-time
teacher at the synagogue as well
as a part-time cantor. •
But when she made - aliyah,
her application was turned down
by Yitzchak Peretz, Israel's In-
terior Minister and leader of the
ultra-Orthodox Shas Party, be-
cause her conversion was not
recognized as valid. Funds from
the treasury of the WUPJ are
being used to fight the case, Git-
telsoh said.
When a bus carrying school
Children pluged off a cliff last
summer in Israel and 22 were
killed, Interior Minister Peretz
reportedly said the accident was

divine retribution for the

desecration of shabbat. " That's
the kind of Orthodoxy we unal-
terably oppose," Gittelsohn
Maid.
The WUPJ is the umbrella
grop for the world's 1.4 million
Reform, Liberal and Progressive
Jews. Its 23rd International
convention was held in Toronto,
marking the first time it has
convened outside Israel or
Europe. Over 250 delegates
from 20 countries attended.

Tel Aviv (JTA) — 'Thousands
of nationalist Israelis jammed
Hebron last Sunday in response
to a Gush Emunim call for a
mass visit to the West Bank
Arab city to prove, as one
spokesman said, that Hebron is
Jewish.
•The visit was in effect a giant
political rally by rightwing and
religious partisans in the guise
of a Passover "tour" and it in-
furiated the Peace Now move-
ment which had cancelled plans
for counter-demonstrations at
the behest of Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin. Political rallies
have been banned in West Bank
towns.
The event coincided with the
18th anniversary of the first
Jewish "settlement" in Hebron
during the Passover week of
1968. At that time, Gush
Etnunim leader Rabbi Moshe
Levinger brought a small group
to Hebron ostensibly for a seder
at a local hotel. They remained
in the town as squatters, defy-
ing the government to evict
them.
The Defense Ministry has
been. allowing Jewish settlers
and their supporters to conduct
"holiday tours" of Hebron if
they promise not to take advan-
tage of the occasion for political
rallies. But the leftist Civil
Rights Movement (CRM) was
banned from holding Anti-Gush
counterdemonstrations which
they said were intended to pro-
ve that Jews and Arabs can co-
exist peacefully.
