The resolution states, "In
response to the destructive
definition of the Jew now pro-
claimed by some Orthodox
authorities, and in the name

of the historic experience of
the Jewish people, we affirm
that a Jew is a person of
Jewish descent or any person
who declares him or herself to
be a Jew and who identifies
with the history, ethical
values, culture, civilization,
and fate of the Jewish people."
According to conference par-
ticipants, the resolution was
issued on behalf of the "silent
majority" of Jews who "feel
they would be excluded from
the Jewish people given the
restrictive, religious nature of
Orthodox definition."

Soviets Promise Moscow
Jewish Cultural Center

New York (JTA) — Soviet
Foreign Minister Eduard
Shevardnadze promised
Jewish leaders to legalize the
teaching of Hebrew in the
Soviet Union and to establish
a Jewish cultural center in
Moscow.
Participants in the discus-
sion, which was held in
Moscow last week and which
reportedly covered all
substantive issues of concern
to Soviet Jewry, included
Edgar Bronfman and Israel
Singer, president and
secretary-general respective-
ly of the World Jewish Con-
gress; Simcha Dinitz, chair-
man of the World Zionist
Organization-Jewish Agency
Executive; and Mendel
Kaplan, chairman of the
Jewish Agency Board of
Governors.
A participant to the talks
who asked not to be named
said the discussion included a
"lengthy review of emigration
statistics and procedures. We
were advised that the recent
favorable trend in terms of
numbers would continua"
While in the Soviet Union,
the Jewish delegation held
talks with groups of Soviet
Jewish activists, including
Hebrew teachers from several
Soviet cities.
Of central importance to
the talks with Shevardnadze
was the establishment of a
Jewish cultural center, which
is expected to open in
February. Initial agreement
for the center was signed last
October in Moscow between
Isi Leibler, head of the
Australian Jewish communi-
ty and vice president of the
WJCongress, and Mikhail
Gluz, director of the small, of-
ficial Moscow Jewish Musical
Theater.

The center is expected to
feature a Jewish library, in-
cluding books in Russian,
Hebrew, Yiddish and English.
The Jewish delegation
brought to Moscow the
largest shipment ever of
books on Jewish subjects in
those languages.
The center will be named
the Solomon Mikhoels
Cultural Center, after the
famed Russian Yiddish actor
who was murdered by Stalin
in 1949. Mikhoels' relatives,
who now live in Israel, will be
invited to the February open-
ing of the center.

Lebanese
Survives Attack

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Gen. An-
toine Lehad was out of danger
Tuesday at Rambam Hospital
in Haifa following an
assassination attempt at his
home in Marjayoun, in the
southern Lebanon security
zone.
Lehad is commander of the
South Lebanon Army, a large-
ly Lebanese Christian force of
about 2,600 men, armed,
trained and financed by Israel
to police the security zone
along Israel's border with
Lebanon.
He was shot in the chest
and upper arm by Suha
Bshara, 21, a ballet and
physical education instructor
described as a friend of the
family. She was immediately
arrested by SLA troops.
Beirut newspapers iden-
tified Bshara as a member of
Lebanon's tiny Communist
Party, which is backed by
Syria, She was issued a pistol
permit only two weeks ago,
the newspapers said.
