Hadassah Gets Flack
For Barring Mohel

New York (JTA) —
Hadassah has accused
Reform and Conservative
Zionist organizations of
"ideological bullying" in
their campaign to have a Con-
servative rabbi registered as
a mohel, or ritual circumciser,
at Hadassah medical
facilities in Israel.
Carmela Kalmanson, na-
tional president of the
women's Zionist organization,
denied claims by Rabbi An-
drew Sacks that Hadassah
hospitals had discriminated
against him because he is a
Conservative rabbi.
Instead, in a statement
released July 31, she claimed
Hadassah was complying
with Israeli laws and customs
for licensing mohelim when it
denied Sacks access to its
hospitals.
According to Kalmanson,
mohelim are licensed by a
committee made up of two Or-
thodox rabbis appointed by
the Ministry of Religious Af-
fairs, and two surgeons, also
Orthodox, selected by the
Ministry of Health.
Kalmanson said Hadassah
is working with religious fac-
tions and the government to
change the licensing practice
"to make surgical com-
petence the standard for per-
, mitting mohelim, whatever
their religious affiliation, to
practice in Israeli medical in-
stitutions."

But according to the head of
the Reform organization
fighting on Sacks' behalf,
however, the licensing com-
mittee is only customary and
has no legal standing in
Israel.
"Hadassah doesn't want to
do the courageous thing" and
challenge the custom, said
Rabbi Eric Yoffie, executive
director of the Association of
Reform Zionists of America,
or ARZA.
"We deplore the fact that
Hadassah or any other
hospital finds it necessary to
create committees that don't
have the force of law behind
them," he said in a telephone
interview.

During the coming week Yeshiva Beth Yehudah will observe the yahrzeits of the following departed friends, with
the traditional memorial prayers, recitation of kaddish and studying of mishnayos.
