fight years ago, Rabbi
William Rudolph, a
young Hillel Founda-
tions personnel services di-
rector, made a dire predic-
tion about the availability of
higher education for Ameri-
can Jews in the future.
Soaring college costs, the
decline in the Jewish bir-
thrate and a switch in
government aid from grants
to loans would produce a
significant drop in Jewish
college enrollment during
the rest of this century, the
rabbi told a Hillel Commis-
sion meeting in Washington
in 1982.
Happily, that has not come
to pass, said Rudolph, now
Hillel assistant interna-
tional director.
There are about 400,000
Jewish students —
undergraduate and graduate
— enrolled in college at pre-
sent, about the same number
as in 1982. But the dangers
he noted then have not
abated and in fact have
deeply affected the current
crop of Jewish students.
Rabbi Rudolph pointed out
that the desire for a well-
paying career without a
lengthy buildup has pulled
Jews out of long-favored
fields such as the human-
ities, because they have to
reap the financial rewards
quickly to pay back their col-
lege loans.
Young Jews in un-
precedented numbers are go-
ing into law, accounting and
business administration.
Rabbi Rudolph said they
are also bypassing an almost
legendary Jewish profession
— medicine — because of the
many years of costly study
and the massive burden of
loans involved.
Annual costs for
undergraduates in Ivy
League schools now run ap-
proximately $20,000, and
are rising at twice the rate of
inflation.
Still, well-to-do families
have no problems financing
college education for their
children, the Hillel official
said. The poor get scholar-
ships, the rich have the
money. It is middle-class
parents who are finding the
financial struggle ever more
burdensome, the rabbi said.
He warned that a point
will come, assuming con-
tinued inflation, that a year
at a good college will cost
$40,000.

"How will typical middle-
class Jewish parents finance
a college education for their
children? And how will the
graduates repay the stagger-
ing total cost of the loans
they will have taken to get
their degree?" the rabbi
asked.
In short, with a minor ex-
ception, the conditions Rabbi
Rudolph warned of in 1982
have materialized.
The exception is the halt in
the declining birthrate as
young Jews, having attained
some financial security, are
belatedly becoming parents.
But Rabbi Rudolph doubts
that is a long-term trend. ❑

Klinghoffers
Can Sue PLO

Washington (JTA) — The
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization suffered a legal blow
recently when a U.S. court
in New-York said it had the
right to rule who was
responsible for tossing a
crippled American man into
the Mediterranean Sea in
1985.
Leon Klinghoffer, a
wheelchair-bound Jewish
man from New York, was
shot and thrown off the
Achille Lauro cruise ship by
members of the Palestine
Liberation Front who had
seized the cruise ship in the
Mediterranean.
The front, a PLO consti-
tuent group headed by
Mohammed (Abul) Abbas,
has also been linked to a
failed terrorist attack May
30 on beaches outside of Tel
Aviv.
The June 7 ruling, by U.S.
District Court Judge Louis
Stanton in Manhattan,
marks the first time a fed-
eral court has accepted
jurisdiction to rule on inter-
national terrorism incidents.
A trial date has not been set.
The Achille Lauro suit was
filed in November 1985 by
Klinghoffer's widow,
Marilyn, who died of cancer
in 1986.
Jay Fischer, the New York
lawyer who handled the Kl-
inghoffer suit, said the ril-
ing "significantly demeans"
the PLO. The next step will
be taking depositions of peo-
ple "who can shed any light
on the PLO," he said.
Fischer said he may try to
have Abbas or PLO leader
Yassir Arafat take the stand
at the trial if he thinks they
have any "relevant" infor-
mation.
