Some Jewish feminists see
that as a good sign. "Our

they feel that it's imperative
to speak out. To do otherwise,
they suggest, allows for a
passive acceptance of things
as they are.
"American Jews have been
silent partners," says Orent.
"But we're not just pocket
books and underwriters," she
explained. "We're one people."

Jewish Groups Support
U.S. Talks With PLO

(JTA) — With few excep-
tions, major American Jewish
groups said this week they
understood U.S. Secretary of
State George Shultz's deci-
sion to allow "substantive
talks" between representa-
tives of the United States
and the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
The Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith said
the United States is "living
up to its commitments." Both
the American Jewish Con-
gress and the American Jew-
ish Committee said Shultz
acted correctly. The Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions called the decision a
"victory" for Shultz.
The warmest words of
praise for Shultz came from
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,

Rabbi Alexander Schindler:
'A victory for Shultz'
president of Reform Judaism's
UAHC.
Schindler said in a state-
ment that the American deci-
sion "represents a victory for
Secretary Shultz and his in-
sistence that the PLO meet
the conditions first laid down
by Secretary (Henry) Kiss-
inger in 1975.
"But a U.S. dialogue with
the PLO is far from a peace
negotiation," added
Schindler. "Rather, it offers
an _opportunity for the United
States to apply pressure on

the PLO to abandon its sur-
realistic demand that Israel
abandon Jerusalem and
return all of the territories."
But while agreeing that the
PLO seemed to have accepted
the U.S. government's condi-
tions for dialogue, nearly all
the groups released state-
ments demanding that PLO
leader Yassir Arafat be made
to match his "magic words"
with deeds.
AJCongress said the United
States should demand assur-
ances that PLO terrorism has
ended, that Arafat accept Res-
olution 242 unencumbered by
any other U.N. resolutions
and that Arafat say to the
Arab world what he has been
saying in the Western press.
Shultz and Reagan have
made it clear, said Robert
Lifton and Henry Siegman,
president and executive di-
rector, respectively, of
AJCongress, that establish-
ing contact with the PLO is
one matter, and satisfying
continuing U.S. and Israeli
skepticism about the "gen-
uineness of the PLO's conver-
sion is an entirely different
matter."
Only two of the larger or-
ganizations issuing state-
ments, the World Zionist
Organization-American Sec-
tion and the Simon Wiesen-
thal Center, were critical of
the U.S. decision.
