law to new technology takes
much time. Eventually,
scholars will have opinions.
Jewish law can't respond to
the research lab. Scientists
are not in full agreement on
this."
Another twist to the IVF
puzzle was added recently
when physicians at the
Cleveland Clinic announced
that two women who lacked
ovaries had become pregnant
by using an anonymous donor
egg. The eggs, surgically
removed from volunteers,
were mixed with the sperm of
the recipient's husband and
implanted in the infertile
woman.
"The question arises of who
is the real mother," Dr. Rosner
said. "According to most rab-
binic opinion, the mother who
gives birth is the mother. It's
her baby, and if the mother is
Jewish, the baby is Jewish?'
Rabbi Steinger believes the
circumstances surrounding
the donation of the ovum
must be considered. Each
case must be taken
individually.
"Biologically, the ovum
comes from another woman,
and is not the mother's child,"
he said. "But obviously the
mother had the pregnancy,
and the fetus is considered
part of the mother who car-
ried it. My opinion would be
that is the case, and there
wouldn't be a distinction
made from a child who was
conceived naturally.

Soviet Jewish
Emigration Rises

New York (JTA) — October's
figures for Jewish emigration
from the Soviet Union showed
a slight increase from the
previous month. A total of
2,068 Jews left the Soviet
Union in October, of whom
192, or 9.3 percent, went to
Israel, according to the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry.
The total number of Jews
who have left the Soviet
Union this year to date is
13,306, the highest number
since 1980, when 21,471 Jews
emigrated. In April 1980,
2,469 Jews emigrated from
the Soviet Union.
The October figure ex-
ceeded by only 17 the number
of Jews who emigrated in
September — 2,051 — and ex-
hibited the same percentage
as last month of emigres
arriving in Israel.
The National Conference
estimates that the vast ma-
jority of JeWs leaving the
Soviet Union are not long-
term refuseniks.
