think that's still the ice rink.
When I was about your age,
your grandfather used to take
me skating there."
For a shivery moment I
could actually feel us going
round and round, relentlessly
round — me on my wobbly
ankles, holding on to my dad's
arm, I must have wrenched
every muscle in his back, but
he always bought me hot
chocolate afterwards anyway.'
"I'll bet," said my son, "if
Grandpa were alive, he'd take
me ice skating."
"Bet he would too," I agreed.
And then it got . . . too quiet.
So heading back toward the
expressway, I turned on the
rap tape. lb my surprise, my
son lowered the volume as we
exited My Old Neighborhood.
"Mom," he said, "maybe I
wouldn't mind hearing just a
couple of your old
neighborhood stories
"That's nice," I said.
It was just a few miles up
the road, where the Lodge
ends and Northwestern
begins, that my son turned to
me and asked, "Mom . . . who
was Smoochy Carlucci?"

one was going to rain on my
sentimental tirade. "Every

sodized, "holds a memory for

that weren't enough, that cor-
ner house over there belonged
to none other than the famous

son, this street generated the
raw stuff of reminiscence."
"The raw stuff of
reminiscence," my boy echoed
sarcastically. "Not bad, Mom.
Not bad."
Even I know it's time to

Washington (JTA) — A pro-
posed Israeli law guarantee-
ing human rights has as
much potential as the "Who
Is a Jew" amendment to split
American and Diaspora
Jewry from Israel, the head of
the Reform movement's rab-
binical seminary warned last
"While in principle [the
law] contains provisions for
the free expression of religion,
it de facto separates out from
that the areas of marriage
and divorce," Dr. Alfred Gott-
schalk, president of Hebrew
Union College-Jewish In-
stitute of Religion said last
"Authority in those key
areas is maintained by the
Orthodox religious courts," he
told reporters at a National
Press Club breakfast
The new law is seen as a
step toward a written con-
stitution for Israel, and its
provisions are expected to be
included in the constitution.
It provides for a special con-
stitutional court that would
rule on whether proposed
legislation violates the provi-
sions of the human rights law.
Gottschalk said that while
some members of the Knesset

would like to see marriage
and divorce included in the
law, they appear to be willing
to go along with the exclusion
to prevent opposition by the
Orthodox parties to the entire
Justice Minister Dan
Meridor has predicted that
the law will be adopted by a
broad majority "within a
reasonable period."
Gottschalk said he believed
that if the human rights bill
contained provisions for the
complete free exercise of
religion, it would put an end
to the Orthodox parties' ef-
forts to amend the Law of
Return to reject as Jews those
converted by Reform and Con-
servative rabbis.
An agreement by Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir last
December to back such an
amendment caused a storm of
protests from American Jews,
which resulted in Shamir
backing off.
While the issue "was put to
rest for now," the amendment
is still in the Knesset and
"will come to light again, cer-
tainly by the time the next
election comes,around," Gott-
schalk said.
"The human rights bill
