CHARLES HOFFMAN

Special to The Jewish News

T

he sexual revolution
has finally hit the mo-
dern Orthodox Jewish
community in America, ac-
cording to a new study show-
ing that significant portions
of Orthodox Jews approve of
premarital sex.
Samuel Heilman, a
sociologist at Queens College
in New York, took the wraps
off a study showing that
about 40 percent of those
classified as "centrist" Or-
thodox approved of premarital
sex among couples that are
regularly dating, and over
half approved of this for
couples that are engaged.
About 10 percent of American
Jews are Orthodox.
The study is included in a
forthcoming
book,
Cosmopolitans
and
Parochials: Modern Orthodox
Jews in America, that
Heilman wrote with his col-
league Steven M. Cohen.
In contrast with the "cen-
trists" and those only
"nominally" Orthodox, those
classed as "traditional" Or-
thodox were almost totally op-
posed to premarital sex under

any circumstances. The three
groups of modern Orthodox
were ranked according to
levels of observance.
Heilman said that those
under 35 were more liberal in
their sexual attitudes than
those over this age. This
result was not expected, he
said, since most people
believe that the younger
generation of Orthodox has
been moving to the right.
"These findings," he said,
"show that trends among the
general population in
America are also reflected
among Jews, even those who
identify as Orthodox.".
The research found that 72
percent of the "centrists" had
gone to see either an X-rated
or an R-rated movie during
the past year, and that 64 per-
cent of the "traditionalists"
had done so. Close to 70 per-
cent of the non-Orthodox in
their sample said that they
had seen a sexually explicit
movie - in the past year.
A question about homosex-
uality showed that 92 percent
of the traditionalists said that
this practice was wrong, while
about 65 percent of the cen-
trists and nominally Or-
thodox condemned it.obox

Sexual Revolution Has
Reached Orthodox Jews

Schools Reopened
On West Bank

.

Jerusalem (JTA) — Some
70,000 young Palestinians
returned to classes on last
week as the civil administra-
tion decided to reopen the
junior high schools.
This was the implementa-
tion of phase two of the ad-
ministration's decision to
reopen the schools in the West
Bank, despite the ongoing
intifada.
All schools in the West
Bank have been shut down
throughout the school year,
except for a few weeks in
December and January.
Primary schools and 12th
grade classes reopened 12
days ago, and with the
reopening of the junior high
schools, only 10th and 11th
grade classes are still closed.
The reopening of the junior
high schools reportedly went
smoothly, with no distur-
bances reported.
This was the second time
this week that school proceed-
ed as scheduled. An
estimated 80 percent of the
Palestinian pupils showed up
to classes on Sunday, despite
orders by the Unified Com-

mand of the Uprising to stay
home due to a general strike.
The high attendance was
attributed somewhat to the
Hamas fundamentalist move-
ment, which ordered the
students to go to classes
despite the general strike.
Gen. Amram Mitzna, head
of the IDF's Central Com-
mand, told members of the
Knesset Education Corinna-
tee, who visited schools in
Ramallah and El-Bireh last
week, that the schools were
reopened after parents and
school principals promised
that schools would no longer
serve as sites for
demonstrations.
"The time is ripe for reopen-
ing the schools," Mitzna said.
"The pupils and their parents
have come to the conclusion
that the children want to
learn."
Mitzna cited three incidents
in which teachers and
students drove masked
youths out of three West
Bank schools, after the in-
truders tried to persuade
them to leave classrooms and
demonstrate outside.
