tributed toward creation of
"an alibi of positions of
diffidence and distance with
regard to the Jews."
Jotti, herself a veteran
Community Party leader,
said, "The presence of
Cossiga and the highest
state authorities at this
meeting has great
significance: it shows that
for the democratic republic
of Italy, anti-Semitism is not
a problem of the Jews but a
problem of all our citizens, of
all their political represent-
atives and institutions."
Toaff proposed formation
of a mixed commission of the
Education Ministry and the
Jewish community to im-
prove textbooks and even to
promote special lessons on
Jews in the schools.
The rabbi said a commis-
sion of experts was already
examining Italian school
texts, in which "Jews are re-
ferred to rather little, in
many cases in a way that is
factious and tendentious. In
this way, school assumes a
serious responsibility
toward students, giving
them incomplete notions,
which can often generate
hostility toward the Jewish
people," Toaff said.

Soviet Aliyah
By Non-Jews

Jerusalem (JTA) — A
quarter of the immigrants
arriving from the Soviet
Union are married to non-
Jews, and millions more
non-Jewish Soviet citizens
may be entitled to Israeli
citizenship under the Law of
Return, according to
Knesset member Michael
Kleiner of Likud.
Kleiner, who chairs the
Knesset Immigration and
Absorption Committee,
maintains that in addition to
the approximately 2 million
Jews believed to remain in
the Soviet Union, there are 3
million non-Jews with at
least one Jewish grand-
parent.
According to Kleiner, they
would qualify for Israeli
citizenship under the Law of
Return. As a result, he be-
lieves the law should be
changed.
The Orthodox-controlled
Absorption Ministry, mean-
while, is concerned about the
large number of Soviet Jews
bringing non- Jewish family
members with them to
Israel. According to Absorp-
tion Minister Yitzhak
Peretz, many of these non-
Jews are unwilling to con-
vert and are interested in
coming to Israel only to
escape difficult conditions.
