MOPAC Treasurer Bob Naf-
taly said the group has
donated money to several
House candidates, including
State Sen. Lana Pollack of
Ann Arbor, who is vying for
the seat held by U.S. Rep. Carl
Pursell, R-Plymouth, and
State Sen. Mitch Irwin of
Sault Ste. Marie.
Naftaly said other reci-
pients of MOPAC funds in-
clude congressional in-
cumbents John Dingell of
Dearborn, William Ford of
Taylor, Dennis Hertel of
Detroit, Bob Carr of East
Lansing and Howard Wolpe of
Delta Township.
MOPAC also has given
money to U.S. Senator Don
Riegle of Flint as well as
out-of-state senators Howard
Metzenbaum of Ohio and
Frank Lautenberg of New
Jersey in their respective re-
election bids.
Naftaly said the PAC never
would support an anti-Israel
candidate and added that
recipients of MOPAC funds
should also believe in the
separation of church and
state and pro-choice on the
abortion issue. Credentials
also include being a staunch
advocate of minority rights.
Naftaly, the former state
budget director, said MOPAC
supports candidates who have
demonstrated the best overall

records. MOPAC does not
mandate that each candidate
supports every issue, he said.
"We need people to help us,"
Naftaly said. "That includes
out-of-state politicians who
can help us speak out for a
vote:'
Naftaly said the group does
not intend to endorse a
presidential candidate. But,
he added, Jesse Jackson is the
only candidate the group
would oppose.
The group expects to con-
tribute to other congressional
and Senate races, he said.
MOPAC, which was founded
in 1986, raised about
$100,000 to funnel money to
Democratic Party candidates
in the 1986 election. It is
spearheaded by Klein, who
declined to discuss the PAC
and its financial disburse-
ments.
The idea for a local Jewish
PAC followed the 1984 gener-
al elections when prominent
Detroit Republicans started
hosting fundraisers for Re-
publican candidates in Mich-
igan and elsewhere.
MOPAC's members include
Mandell Berman, Lawrence
Jackier, David Mondry, Jack
Robinson, Laurence Deitch,
Jane Sherman and Sidney
Lutz. The group has a nine-
member executive committee
and a 17-member board of
directors.

U.S. Jewish Groups Vow
'Unity' With Israel

New York — Fifty-one
American Jewish organiza-
tions released a statement of
"unity and identification"
with Israel. The statement,
which was circulated last
week by the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish organizations, includ-
ed the signatures of four
groups that have been public-
ly critical of Israel's use of
beatings to quell Palestinian
violence in the administered
territories.
The statement said the
signators had "received
assurances from the president
and prime minister of Israel
that the policy of restraint
continues,' that they "have
expressed to them our con-
cern regarding any depar-
tures in contradiction" of the
policy and that they "trust
that this policy will be
uniformly implemented?'
The statement voiced regret
at the loss of life in the ter-
ritories and welcomed the ef-
forts of the United States and
others "to move the peace pro-
cess forward to a just and
lasting peace."
It also noted that for

decades the Arab world "ex-
ploited and victimized" the
Palestinians by refusing "to
come to the peace table to
negotiate a settlement with
Israel."
After declaring that Israel's
security "is a prime concern
to Jews everywhere," the
signators said, "We believe
we speak for the overwhelm-
ing majority of Jews across
the country and around the
world in this expression of
unity and identification with
the embattled nation of
Israel?'
Among the 42 constituent
members and nine observer
groups of the Conference sign-
ing the statement were the
American Jewish Congress
and two Reform organizations
— the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations and
the Central Conference of
American Rabbis. All three
organizations had previously
issued critical statements. A
third Reform organization
that signed the statement,
the Association of Reform
Zionists of America, had
voiced "alarm and distress"
over the beatings.
