Reform Body
Backs ACLU

New York (JTA) — The
social justice arm of Reform
Judaism in the United States
has denounced what it calls
"the effort to make member-
ship in the American Civil
Liberties Union appear to be
subversive, unpatriotic and
somehow anti-American."
The statement, issued Mon-
day by the Commission on
Social Action of Reform
Judaism, named no culprit.
The ACLU has become an
issue in the presidential race
between Vice President
George Bush, the Republican
candidate, and Gov. Michael
Dukakis of Massachuetts, his
Democratic opponent.
Bush has referred to
Dukakis as a "card-carrying
member" of the ACLU, a
phrase that gained currency
with respect to the Com-
munist Party during the hey-
day of Sen. Joe McCarthy.

'Who Is A Jew'
Is Discussed

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
American Jewish Congress
approved a resolution at its
70th annual convention this
week urging Israel's political
parties not to use the inflam-
matory "Who is a Jew"issue
as a bargaining chip should
they need to form a coalition
government after the Nov. 1
The resolution, adopted
unanimously, stated that any
change in Israel's Law of
Return altering the definition
of a Jew would undermine the
unity of the Jewish people
and alienate the vast majori-
ty of American Jewry.
