T

he recent brawl bet-
ween B'nai B'rith
Women and their
parent organization, B'nai
B'rith International, has in-
creased speculation that an-
other affiliate of the huge
Jewish communal organiza-
tion may be moving towards
an open break.
The Anti-Defamation
League has dropped the
"B'nai B'rith" in its name in
many of their communica-
tions with other Jewish
groups, and with their part-
ners in various public policy
coalitions.
According to Burton S.
Levinson, ADL's chairman,
the move reflects more of a

Legal technicality.

legal technicality than an
estrangement from the
parent organization.
"Our legal representative
said that in order to protect
the name 'Anti-Defamation
league,' we had to publicly
use that name, not in con-
junction with B'nai B'rith,"
Levinson said. "If we didn't
do that, we might be giving
up the opportunity to protect
that identification in the
future."
But Levinson agreed that
the unofficial name change
was also motivated by confu-
sion among the public as the
Washington-based B'nai
B'rith International attemp-
ts to take a more visible
stance in public affairs.
While he indicated that
the name change did not
result from any "organic
problem" between ADL and
B'nai B'rith, Levinson
agreed that one motive in
the change was to protect
ADL in case B'nai B'rith's
foray into public affairs —

and its internal re-
organization — is not suc-
cessful.
"The future all depends on
whether B'nai B'rith is as
effective in their own reor-
ganization plans as I hope
they will be," he said. "B'nai
B'rith has publicly indicated
that they have a lot of new
ideas to revitalize the organ-
ization. We hope they'll be
successful. If B'nai B'rith is
not successful, is not show-
ing itself to be relevant, then
ADL may need more separa-
tion. If they are successful,
we may require less."
Other observers in Wash-
ington suggest that the
rivalry, which has been
common knowledge for
years, has been growing in
intensity as B'nai B'rith
moves aggressively in the
direction of political activity
on a number of fronts —
areas in which ADL has long
held a preeminent position
within the Jewish commun-
ity.
For their part, B'nai B'rith
president Seymour Reich
and executive vice president
Tom Neumann see no signs
of growing strains between
the two groups.
"This is the kind of story
that we've heard before,"
Neumann said. "There's just
nothing to it."



Rise In Aliyah

Jerusalem (JTA) — Im-
migration to Israel increased
84 percent in 1989 over the
previous year, according to
official figures just released.
About 24,000 immigrants
arrived last year, compared
to 13,000 in 1988.
Almost all of the increase
was accounted for by the rise
in emigration from the
Soviet Union.
