Washington (JTA) — A
$5 million grant for the
Simon Wiesenthal Center's
Museum of Tolerance, ap-
proved by the Senate last
month, now faces an uphill
battle in the House of Repre-
The grant, earmarked for
"education programs con-
cerning the Holocaust," is
contained in the Senate ver-
sion of the Mildred and
Claude Pepper Scholarship
The House version of the
same bill contains just
$500,000, all earmarked for
scholarships to help the
hearing-impaired learn
about government.
But in passing its version
of the bill, the Senate added
$25.2 million for various
other projects, including the
grant for the Museum of

Goodling (R-Pa.), ranking
Republican on the House
Education and Labor Com-
mittee, which has House
jurisdiction over the Pepper
bill, said, "The feeling on the
House side is not good"
toward the Senate version of
the bill.
While the aide called the
museum a "worthwhile pro-
ject," he said it is "not
likely" that the House will

give final approval to the
Senate's additions to the
Pepper bill, including the
Wiesenthal Center grant.
This is not the first time
objections have been raised
about public funding for the
In 1985, the American
Jewish Committee,
American Jewish Congress
and Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith
opposed a $5 million
California state grant
because of the museum's in-
tricate ties at the time to
Yeshiva University of Los
At the time, one board of
directors oversaw both the
museum and the university,
which is concerned a sec-
tarian institution.
The three Jewish groups
contended that providing
public funds to a sectarian
institution would violate
constitutional prohibitions
against entanglement of
government with religion.
The key lawmakers sup-
porting the grant were Sens.
Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.)
and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah),
the chairman and ranking
Republican on the Senate
Labor and Human Resources
Committee, which has
Senate jurisdiction over the
Pepper act.
