academic prerequisites in
text, Hebrew language and
experience in living as a Jew.
Rabbi Gordon Tucker, dean
of the rabbinical school, ex-
plained that previously there
were students at the school
with limited backgrounds,
who entered the seminary as
a result of having become in-
terested in Judaism during
college.
"They were sincere and
capable . . . but they hadn't
sufficient exposure to all the
aspects of Jewish life," he
said.
The admissions require-
ment is just one of the many
changes in curriculum at JTS.
Other changes include fixing
the course of study at five
years, rather than the
previous four- to seven-year
term; a seminar which will
concentrate on issues of
theology, prayer and the im-
age of a rabbi; and a field
work requirement for the last
two years.
According to Tucker, the
changes were prompted by a
desire to integrate learning
text with basic rabbinate
skills, such as teaching and
inspiring others.
"The demands placed on to-
day's rabbi go far beyond the
ability to understand
Talmudic passages," said
Hamilton. "There are now
demands that a rabbi be a
people-person."

Soviet Aliyah
Shows Increase

New York (JTA) — The
percentage of Soviet Jewish
emigres who moved to Israel
in May was double the
January figure, and the
highest since April 1988,
Soviet Jewry groups reported
last week.
The 549 emigres who made
aliyah represented 14.5 per-
cent of the month's total of
3,779, according to both the
National Conference on
Soviet Jewry and the Union
of Councils for Soviet Jews.
Since January, the percen-
tage of Soviet Jews choosing
Israel over the United States
and other countries was no
higher than 10 percent. In
April 1988, 16.8 percent of
the emigres made aliyah.
Although 778 fewer Jews
emigrated in May than in
April, the figure still comes
close to the more than 4,000
per month who immigrated
during the benchmark year of
1979, according to NCSJ
spokesman Jerry Strober.
May's figures bring the total
number of emigres since
January to 17,797, only 1,168
less than the number for all
of 1988.
