Christian City

Jerusalem (JTA) — A
130-dunam Christian city
that flourished in Israel's
Negev desert some 1,500 to
2,000 years ago is now reve-
aling its glory as the result of
excavations carried out by a
team from the Hebrew Uni-
versity's Institute of Ar-
chaeology and the University
of Maryland.
The city, known as Rehovot
in the Negev (Khirbet
Ruheibeh in Arabic) is lo-
cated some 35 kilometers
southwest of Beersheba in
the midst of barren desert
hills. Once an important
point on the Sinai-Palestine-
Syria route, the town was
built in the first century
B.C.E. as a way station by
the Nabateans, a now-extinct
desert-dwelling people, who
conducted trade in incense
and spices between Arabia
and the Mediterranean
, region and also conducted a
flourishing agriculture, even
in near totally arid regions.

New York — The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith called on Congress to
pass legislation that would
guarantee to all members of
the U.S. Armed Forces their
Constitutional right to prac-
tice their faith through the
wearing of "neat and conser-
vative" religious apparel.
The ADL made the appeal
following narrow rejection by
the Senate of legislation that
would provide greater ac-
commodation to religious
practices of American mili-
tary personnel by permitting
them to wear certain items of
religious apparel. A similar
measure is now pending be-
fore the House.
The Senate legislation was
in response to a recent U.S.
Supreme Court ruling which
upholds Air Force regulations
prohibiting an officer from
wearing a small skullcap or
yarmulke while in uniform.
