have many members who sup-
port Lubavitch unknowingly.
People don't realize there are
differences.
"This can be so divisive," he
said. "This is no time to
withdraw our support for
Israel. It is no time for anyone
to divide our hearts or our
loyalties — that would be the
greatest triumph for the
PLO."
Rabbi Polish of Beth El
shared his distress with his
congregation in his sermon
Friday night. "I identified the
Lubavitch rebbe as the
culprit and pointed out that
the vast support for his
organization is from Reform
and Conservative Jews and
that is wrong. Instead of lov-
ing Reform and Conservative
Jews as he says, he is express-
ing hatred."
Rabbi Efry Spectre of Adat
Shalom Synagogue told his
congregants Saturday that
making the change in the
Law of Return a priority "is
unworthy of the Lubavitcher
movement, which has done so
much good in the past."
Spectre said the rebbe has
never been to the state of
Israel. He called the effort to

change the Law of Return "an
insult to your neighbors who
have been converted with
strictest application of
Halachah. It is an insult to
the Jewish people."
He asked his congregation
to withhold contributions to
Lubavitch "until they return
to working for the Jewish peo-
ple, instead of against."
At Congregation Shaarey
Zedek, Rabbi Irwin Groner
said there is "widespread con-
cern, indignation and
anguish." He called the pro-
posed change in the Law of
Return "a psychological rejec-
tion of the legitimacy of any
form of Judaism but
Orthodoxy.
"Your rabbis are not rabbis.
Your converts are not Jews.
Even your right to follow a
different type of faith is not
valid," he said.
Groner called on all Jewish
leaders to continue their
philanthropic efforts,
"especially through the
United Jewish Appeal.
"This is a quarrel within
the mishpocha. It should not
weaken support for the needy,
the deprived, the under-
privileged."

anticipated 1990 budget
deficit of $135 billion.
It is not clear whether
President-elect George Bush
will submit his own budget
requests as well. Like
Reagan, Bush does not sup-
port tax increases, although
there has been talk of various
"revenue enhancement"
measures.
The agreement on military
aid was reached in the U.S.-
Israeli Joint Security
Assistance Planning Group.
In a concurring agreement,
Israeli Defense Minister Yit-
zhak Rabin agreed not to seek
more than $1.8 billion in
military aid for 1990, sources
said.
But U.S. and Israeli officials
said the Reagan administra-
tion is considering a 2 percent
cut in military aid for the cur-
rent fiscal year, which could
cost Israel $36 million. It
would be reappropriated to
countries whose military aid
was cut dramatically in re-
cent years, including some
that allow U.S. military bases
on their territory.
Administration proponents
of the cut oppose congres-
sional earmarking of specific
levels of aid to Israel, Egypt
and other foreign aid reci-
pients, which gives them lit-
tle room to maneuver the
foreign aid budget. The ad-

ministration does not need
congressional approval to
make the cut.
Carlucci told Rabin about
the idea earlier this month in
Israel, to which Rabin
responded that opposing it
"would cause him problems
and would not fight it," a
source said.
Three of the four key
members of the congressional
appropriations subcommit-
tees with jurisdiction over
foreign aid are urging the ad-
ministration to scrap the
idea. They are Sens. Daniel
Inouye (D-Hawaii) and Robert
Kasten (R-Wis.), and Rep.
David Obey (D-Wis.), the
source said.
"If it is blocked it will be
because of them," he said. "If
it goes through, it will be
because Rabin gave (the ad-
ministration) a 'green light."
Yosef Gal, the Israel Em-
bassy spokesman, said he did
not know what Rabin had
told Carlucci, but added that
"we believe and hope" that
the 2 percent cut will not take
place.
For fiscal year 1990, Gal
said he was "pretty confi-
dent" that the current level of
U.S. aid will be maintained.
Morris Amitay, a former ex-
ecutive director of the
American-Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee, said there is
