Rabbi Lobbies
For Animal Rights





But the animal protection
movement has run into pro-
blems in the Jewish corn-
munity, especially among the
Orthodox.
"The issue of kosher
slaughter has been a pro-
blem," White said. "Many
animal rights groups have
labeled it inhumane. So there
has been a reticence on the
part of Orthodox groups to
have anything to do with
animal rights groups."

"There is an increase in the
number of Jews who are
vegetarian," according ,t1
White, who serves as Jewish
chaplain at Georgetown
University. "And
vegetarianism is the route to
participation for many.
There's a new group devoted
to coping with the appalling
treatment of animals in
Israel. There's a woman who
has written a Haggadah for
vegetarian Jews. The entire
animal rights movement has
really gained a sense of
respectability, in terms of its
acceptance with the' public
and its treatment in the
media."

Jews May Affect
Race For Pepper's Seat

The race to fill the seat left
open by the death of Rep.
Claude Pepper, D-Fla., has
taken on strong Jewish
overtones.
Last
week,
Gerald
Richman, a Jew, won the
Democratic nomination;
earlier, the Republican
nomination was captured by
State Sen. Ileana Ros-
Lehtinen, a Cuban-born
educator.
The Miami- district is an
ethnic hodgepodge, with
strong Jewish and Cuban
communities. Earlier,
Republican National Com-
mittee chairman Lee Atwater

had declared the seat a
Cuban-Anerican seat;
Richman countered by declar-
ing it an "American seat."
According to some analysts,
the Jewish vote could prove
critical. Apparently Ros-
Lehtinen thinks so, too;
recently, she was seen on a
flight to Israel, on a whirl-
wind one-day visit apparent-
ly intended to establish her
pro-Israel credentials in the
community.
Analysts also point to the
possibility of a black-Jewish
coalition developing in the
district to oppose
Ros-Lehtinen.

Jews Back Safe Haven
For Central Americans

Immigration remains a
strong Jewish concern here in
the Capitol, even when Jews
are not the ones seeking
refuge in this country.
A case in point is the fight
over a bill by Rep. Joe
Moakley, D-Mass., and Sen.
Dennis DeConcini, D-Ariz.,
which would provide tem-
porary "safe haven" to El
Salvadoran and Nicaraguan
nationals living in this coun-

try before March 1 of this
year.
No one knows how many
Central American refugees
are living underground in
American cities; the
Moakley-DeConcini bill, say
supporters, would provide a
mechanism for providing a
solid estimate of their
numbers and an assessment
of their requests for
asylum. 0

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

MIN NA



Washington has advocates
for just about every cause, so
it should come as no surprise
that proponents of animal
rights are a growing force
here.$ What might be a sur-
prise is the fact that a leading
spokesman for the movement
is a rabbi and a leader in an
ecumenical organization that
brings a religious perspective
to bear on the animal rights
question.
Rabbi Harold White of the
International Network on
Religion and Animals sees a
growing interest in the
animal protection movement
— and a growing respon-
siveness of Jews both here
and in Israel to the
movement.
"We're not exactly a lobby-
ing or a political organiza-
tion," White said. "What we
do is attempt to awaken the
consciousness of clergy on an
ecumenical basis on the issue
of animal rights and the
ethical treatment of animals!'
And growing interest by
religious leaders, he in-
dicated, can have a big impact
as Congress begins to tackle
these complex issues.
