THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
Continued from preceding page
the Congress, while Labor had
116, making theirs the two
largest delegations. So the con-
test in the U.S. election next
month, as it is in Israel, is real-
ly between Labor and Likud.
Key portfolios in the WZO are
in the hands of Herut, the
senior partner in the Likud, a
situation Herut is determined
to maintain, according to Herut
USA national executive direc-
tor Glenn Mones.
"The election determines the
leadership in the Jewish Agen-
cy and the WZO. Herut now has
the chairmanship of the Aliyah
Department, the chairmanship
of the Settlement Department
which is crucial to us, and the
Department of Education and
Culture in the Diaspora. We
support the positions taken by
Prime Minister Shamir: that
Judea and Samaria never be
The WZO Settlement Depart-
ment is largely responsible for
building settlements in the ter-
ritories, where the Jewish
Agency and the United Jewish
Appeal do not operate (See
following story). For this
reason, the department is a ma-
jor source of contention between
Labor and Likud, which have
radically differing plans for the
future of the territories.
A Labor chairman of the Set-
tlement Department would
shift "priorities to settle in the
undisputed part of Israel," ac-
cording to Yoav Peck, director of
Friends of Labor Israel which
will, along with Naamat USA,
join the Labor Zionist Alliance
on the Labor ticket. Herut's
chairmanship of the Aliyah
Department "enabled Gush
Emunim recruiters to use (the
department's) facilities," Peck
charged. "It also placed
obstacles in the path of people
(making aliyah) who had been
converted by Reform rabbis!'
"We're social-conscious peo-
ple," Detroit LZA president
Henry Faigin added. "We
believe that democracy is bas-
ed on the rights of all people."
Herut's Mones said that Or-
thodox, Conservative and
Reform Jews are members of
his organization, which will
run a joint slate with Techiyah
and the Sephardic Movement.
"We are stressing that the Con-
gress should not be a place for
Next month's elections will
select 152 American delegates
to the Congress, roughly one-
third of all delegates. Israelis
form a slightly larger con-
tingent and the remaining
delegates are drawn from the
rest of the world.
Over 900,000 ballots will be
mailed to American Zionists,
according to Karen Rubinstein,
executive director of the
American Zionist Federation.
She estimated that there are
1,118,000 members of
American Zionist organiza-
tions. The difference in the two
figures is caused by multiple

lists have been "merged and
purged. An address that shows
more than 20 names will be
checked," she said.
Like elections to the Knesset,
delegates to the Congress are
elected by proportional
representation — by the percen-
tage of votes each organization
receives. So if Hadassah was to
receive ten percent of the U.S.
vote, it would have ten percent
of the American delegates.
Each organization draws up a
list of delegates it hopes to send
to the Congress. Many
organizations report that while
the names of potential
delegates have already been
ranked on_the list, final choice
of positions will not be deter-
mined until after the election.
So it is nearly impossible to
vote for an individual you think
would be a good delegate to the
If a voter wishes to elect, for
example, the ZOA's David
Hermelin, currently number 54
on the list, he must vote for the
ZOA ticket and hope that
Hermelin is placed more pro-
minently on the list, say 20 or
above. In the end, the voter
must choose an organization,
not an individual.
"The prestige of any
organization depends, to some
extent, on the number of
delegates they send to the Con-
gress," observed Ezekiel Leikin,
executive vice president of the
ZOA's Metro Detroit District.
He described his group as
"neither left or right," whose
platform affirms "religious
pluralism, free enterprise and
the unity of the Jewish People!'
The ZOA is the American
body of "General Zionists,"
whose Israeli branch, the
Liberal Party, is a partner of
Herut in the Likud bloc. And

Liberals on defense and settle-
ment issues more closely
