Reform, Conservatives
Zionist Election Winners

DAVID HOLZEL

Staff Writer

The Reform and Conser-
vative movements' Zionist
organizations scored the big-
gest gains in the election of
U.S. delegates to the 31st
World Zionist Congress, in-
dicating a strong concern for
religious pluralism in Israel
among American Zionists.
In results announced
Wednesday by the American
Zionist Federation, the
Association of Reform
Zionists of America will send
33 delegates to the Congress,
an increase of 19 delegates
over the 30th Congress. The
Conservative Meicaz will be
represented, for the first time,
by 20 delegates.
The only other gains were
scored by the Labor Zionist
Movement, which picked up
two delegates, for a total of
15.
The election's big losers ap-
pear to be the Zionist
Organization of America and
the Federation of Hadassah,
B'nai Zion, American Jewish
League for Israel and Young
Judea. The ZOA will send 12
delegates to the Congress, a
loss of ten seats; Federation
will send 48, a loss of 21.
Karen Rubinstein, ex-
ecutive director of the AZF,
which conducted the election,
told The Jewish News elec-
tion results appeals "are
already in the works." The
final delegate count may dif-
fer slightly from the announc-
ed results, she said.
Nine lists vied for 152
American seats — roughly
one-third of the total number
of seats at the Congress,
which is set to convene in
Jerusalem in December. Over
900,000 ballots were mailed
to registered American
Zionists; 227,014 ballots were
returned. The voting was
supervised by the indepen-
dent American Arbitration
Association. According to
Rubinstein, a firm called
Equifax verified the validity
of the returned ballots.
"Equifax took a random sam-
ple of each organization's
membership lists to verify
. whether names they submit-
ted enabled them to vote."
Religious Zionists of
America, Americans for a
Progressive Israel and the In-
dependent Students for Israel
all received "significant
penalties" by the verification
firm for having inaccurate
lists. ZOA received a "small
penalty" and the Federation

-

received "virtually no penal-
ty," Rubinstein said.
Other election results in-
cluded: Independent
Students, no delegates, no
change from the last Con-
gress; Herut-Techiya-
Sephardic Movement, nine
delegates, a loss of four;
Americans For Progressive
Israel, one delegate, a loss of
one; and Religious Zionists,
14 delegates, a loss of five.
Election results show that
"the largest number of

"The largest
number of
American Zionists
now have no
affiliation with
Israeli political
parties."

American Zionists now have
no affiliation with Israeli
political parties," Rubinstein
said.
The vote showed that
religious pluralism in Israel
is the top priority of
American Zionists, she em-
phasized. "Over -one-third
voted on religious pluralism"
— that is, supported ARZA
and Mercaz, which campaign-
ed on that single issue. In ad-
dition, "Federation and Labor
support religious pluralism."
Ironically, religious
pluralism has never been a
top agenda item in Israel, a
situation which is now chang-
ing due to Diaspora pressure,
Rubinstein said. In the up-
coming World Zionist Con-
gress, "Israelis will have to
deal with an American
delegation that will fit less
and less than in the past into
the Israeli political system."

In Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — A three-
day strike that blacked out
radio and television ended
last week, and Egged buses,
threatened with a system
wide shutdown, were rolling.
But it was only a breathing
spell while Israelis await the
outcome of wage negotiations
which will determine
whether there will be a
general strike of public
employees.
Breathing was difficult in
Tel Aviv where uncollected
garbage gave off noxious
aromas. Garbage-truck driv-
ers have been on a slow-down
