umors are rampant as
to who will replace Ira
Silverman as the pro-
fessional head of the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee.
Mr. Silverman, 45, who
became executive vice presi-
dent of the Committee just
over two years ago, has
stepped down from his post
because of poor health. He
became ill with a stomach
disorder after a visit to
China last year and has not
been able to return to work
full-time since then.
Insiders say that David
Harris, the Committee's
Washington representative,
and John Ruskay, a vice
chancellor of the Jewish
Theological Seminary in
New York, are leading can-
didates for the New York-
based position.
The Committee, once con-
sidered the most stable of
the national Jewish commu-
nal organizations, has fallen
on difficult times in recent
years. Since Bert Gold
retired as executive vice
president in the mid-1980s,
there have been three suc-
cessors serving brief
tenures. In addition, the
Committee cited serious
deficits this past year when
it cut back on its activities,
reduced its number of
employees and ceased
publication of its quarterly
magazine, Present Tense.
Both Dr. Ruskay and Mr.
Harris are given high marks
for their knowledge and ex-

pertise of Jewish communal
life. Mr. Silverman, popular
during his two years in of-
fice, will continue as head of
the Committee's Institute of
Human Relations. ❑
