CONTEMPORARY

ment establishing policies
for guests wanting to deliver
the ceremonial opening
prayer.
Sorotzkin, 39, an Orthodox
rebbetzin and mother of 13
children, had been recom-
mended to deliver the prayer
by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-
Utah), who was described as
a friend of the Sorotozkin
family.
But Sen. Robert Byrd
(D-W.V.), who as president
pro tempore of the Senate
oversees the selection pro-
cess, decided Tuesday night
that Sorotzkin was un-
qualified to deliver the
prayer because of the 1977
document.
John Stait, who is assis-
tant to the Senate chaplain,
the Rev. Richard Halverson,
said that when Sorotzkin
showed up on Wednesday
and was told she could not
deliver the prayer, she was
"gracious about the whole
thing."
Stait said Halverson was
unaware of that 1977
criteria. In her resume, ob-
tained from Hatch aides,
Sorotzkin calls herself
"Rabbanit Rachel Sorot-
zkin." "Rabbanit" is the
Hebrew word meaning
rabbi's wife.
Stait said the word
"rabbanit" confused Halver-
son. In addition, it was
difficult "working with a
Mormon senator who knew a
lot less than we did about
the Jewish religion," Stait
added.
Sorotzkin, who lives in
Kiryat Telshe-Stone with
her husband, Moshe, and
their 13 children, is a native
of the Bronx, N.Y. Her
father, Rabbi Yitzchok Isaac
Liebes, is head of the court of
the Rabbinical Alliance of
America.

Ceremony
In West Bank

Jerusalem (JTA) — A
vociferous public dedication
of a Torah scroll at a yeshiva
in the West Bank city of
Nablus passed without inci-
dent last week.
The Israel Defense Force
clamped a daylong curfew on
the 120,000 Palestinians in
Nablus and three adjacent
refugee camps, to prevent
any clashes from occurring
while 150 Orthodox Jews
and many right-wing mem-
bers of parliament attended
the religious ceremony.
The Torah was dedicated
at the Od Yosef Hai ("Joseph
Still Lives") Yeshiva, which
is at the site of Joseph's
Tomb, a shrine holy to
Moslems and Jews alike.
