AN APPEAL TO PRESERVE
RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AND JEWISH UNITY.

TO: PRIME MINISTER YITZHAK SHAMIR
FOREIGN MINISTER SHIMON PERES
World Jewry looks to you for decisions that will take into consideration
the best interests concerning the Jewish people. We recognize and appreciate
the diligent and statesmanlike efforts you are making. We earnestly trust
that you will succeed so that the people of Israel will have a government
that is unified and that Jews in the Diaspora can avoid serious and irreparable
damage to Jewish unity.
At the 86th National Convention of the Zionist Organization of America,
at which both of you gave us the privilege of your presence, the following
resolution was adopted which confirms past positions recorded by the
Zionist Organization of America.
"Whereas the ZOA is on record in its support of religious
pluralism: Whereas the continued reintroduction of the "Who
is a Jew?" amendment by certain religious parties and their
supporters is hurtful and divisive to Klal Yisrael and Jewish
unity: Now therefore be it resolved that ZOA, the central and
all-embracing movement of American Zionism including all
religious streams of Judaism, celebrating its 90th anniversary
in medinat Yisrael, reaffirms its opposition to any attempt to
change the Law of Return as being inconsistent with the goal
of our movement, which supports religious pluralism."
On behalf of the leadership and membership of the ZOA, we express
our confidence that decisions will be made so that this divisive issue
will be resolved and the unity of the Jewish people preserved.
Zionist Organization of America
Milton S. Shapiro, president
Rabbi M. Robert Syme, president
(Metropolitan Detroit ZOA)

Television Special
Deals With God

How Jews experience God —
through ritual, study, con-
fronting life, transcending
tragedy, trying to make the
world better — is explored in
the ABC-TV (Ch. 7) one-hour
special, "I Ask For Wonder —
Experiencing God," 1 p.m.
Sunday.
Produced for the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, the program focuses
on men and women whose
lives have been shattered by
personal tragedy. As they
work through the seeming
unfairness of their pain, a



common spirit of triumph
emerges to make a statement
on the resiliency of those who
"choose life."
Appearing in the program
are "ordinary people doing ex-
traordinary things" to mend
their lives. Former Detroiter
Rabbi Harold Kushner,
author of When Bad Things
Happen To Good People, re-
counts his family's experience
with the death of a 13-year-
old child. The "Runnning
Rabbi" Hirshel Jaffe, author
of Why Me? Why Anyone?,
describes his struggle with
