gested, without a significant

aid budget — a highly unlike-
ly move in the context of the
current budget crunch.

Insufficient
Funds Delay
Soviet
Emigration

Soviet Jewry activists here
are facing a frustrating task
as they attempt to work with
the State Department and
Congress to clear up the
growing bottlene k in
Moscow.
Currently, Soviet citizens
seeking visas to enter the
United States are being
turned away because funds
for their processing have been
used up — even though the
current fiscal year is only
three months old.
The current problem, from
a Washington perspective, is
that the State Department is
in a kind of end-of-adminis-
tration lull — and Congress
will not convene until late
January.
As a result, finding ways to
provide immediate help for
the thousands of hopeful
emigres in Moscow — includ-
ing many Jews — is proving to
be a difficult task.
"The state department
hasn't been uncooperative,"
said one Soviet Jewry ac-
tivist. "But they're busy with
the transition; They aren't
making commitments that
the new secretary will have to
keep. This is embarrassing for
them, but it's not a top priori-
ty."
Representatives of groups
like the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry have been
making the rounds of house
and senate offices, with an
eye towards an emergency ap-
propriation bill when the
101st Congress opens for
business in two months.

Law Of Return
Has Embassy
Phones Ringing

How strongly do American
Jews feel about proposed
changes in Israel's "Law of
Return" that would bar Jews
converted by Reform or Con-
servative rabbis?
One measure may be the
flood of calls coming to the
Israeli embassy.
Although he declined to

give figures, a representative
of the embassy here said that
the number of calls by con-
cerned Jews in this country
has been "very high — higher
than anything we have seen
since Lebanon:'
"Mostly," the embassy
spokesman said, "these are
people who want to find out
what is happening in Israel.
Unfortunately, there isn't
much we can tell them at this
point."

Re-Appointments
Less Offensive To
Jewish Groups

The trickle of appointments
to the Bush cabinet con-
tinues. After the trauma of
the Sununu appointment and
the uncertainty of the choice
of James Baker as secretary
of state, two more recent an-
nouncements were met with
more favor by Jewish activists
here.
Early in the week, it was
revealed that Attorney
General Richard Thornburgh
and Education Secretary
Laura F. Cavazos would be re-
tained after the inauguration
in January.
Thornburgh, who was ap-
pointed after the resignation
of the embattled Edwin
Meese, developed a reputation
for working smoothly with
Jewish groups during his
years as governor of
Pennsylvania.
Cavazos is a less known
quantity. But early indica-
tions are that the secretary —
the first Hispanic cabinet
member — will seek a lower
profile than his flamboyant,
ultra-conservative predeces-
sor, William Bennett.
"I don't think Phyllis
Schlafly will run wild in the
education department the
way she did under Bennett,"
said Steve Silbiger, Washing-
ton representative of the
American Jewish Congress.
One early indication of this
more evenhanded approach
was Cavazos' announcement
that the department would
reconsider the recent re-
jection of a grant for an
innovative and respected
educational program on the
Holocaust.
