Jews To Meet
In Hungary

New York (JTA) — Two
major international Jewish
organizations will hold their
executive committee meetings
in Budapest within a month of
each other, spokesmen for the
World Jewish Congress and
the Memorial Foundation for
Jewish Culture reported. They
noted that this was unprece-
dented, marking the first such
gatherings in a Communist
country in Eastern Europe.
Israel Singer, WJCongress
secretary-general, who with
executive director Elan Stein-
berg just returned from
Budapest, said the Hungarian
government had agreed to the
meeting and to the participa-
tion of all members of the
WJCongress executive, includ-
ing those from Israel.
"Senior members of the
World Zionist Organization, as
members of the WJC execu-
tive, will participate in the
meetings, as will representa-
tives of Jewish communities
from around the world," Singer
said. "This agreement repre-
sents a significant break-
through which we expect can
have an impact not only on
Jewish relation with the East:
ern bloc, but on the general
state of East-West relations as
well."

Rabbi Clarifies
Statement

New York (JTA) -- A lead-
ing Orthodox rabbi in Israel
made clear his view that "sub-
stantive halachic issues" must
take precedence in areas of
personal status such as divorce
and conversion over "who
gains some recognition by
superintending or signing
what."
Rabbi Aharon Lichtenstein,
who heads a yeshivah in the
Etzion Bloc of settlements
south of Hebron, said in a
statement that it was neces-
sary for him to clarify remarks
he made before a National
Religious Party forum in
Jerusalem last month which
"were grossly distorted in cer-
tain press reports."
His remarks were inter-
preted in some quarters as a
hint that Orthodox refusal to
regard as valid the imprimatur
of non-Orthodox rabbis on
documents of personal status
may have to be modified in the
interests of Jewish unity.
With respect to the area of
personal status, Lichtenstein
said in his statement, "We
should strive to minimize the
emphasis upon symbolic ques-
tions of pride and prestige and
focus, instead, upon the sub-
stantive halachic issues. We
should try to ensure that pro-
per procedure be followed."
