Mrs. Cardin Favored
For Top Leadership Post

JAMES D. BESSER

Washington Correspondent

S

hoshana Cardin of
Baltimore is the ap-
parent frontrunner in
the race to replace Seymour
Reich as chair of the Con-.
ference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations.
Mrs. Cardin currently
serves as chair of the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry. Mr. Reich will be
completing his second and
last term in the highly visi-
ble leadership position in
January.
The President's Con-
ference leader is often
regarded by the media as the
primary spokesperson for
the American Jewish com-
munity. The Conference rep-
resents the consensus views
of some 50 national Jewish
organizations, both secular
and religious.
Other potential candidates
include Robert K. Lifton,
president of the American
Jewish Congress, and Ruth
Popkin, president of the
Jewish National Fund. They
are believed to want the post
very much, but in Jewish
communal life it is rare for
potential candidates to ac-
tively campaign for such
positions.
"Shoshana is the only can-
didate with national
stature," said an official
with one major Jewish
organization. "She is a per-
son who exudes competence
and confidence. It would be
hard to find anybody better
able to cope with these
perilous times than
Shoshana."
Mrs. Cardin herself has
chosen not to actively cam-
paign for the position.
"I have been asked to be a
candidate, and I am one,"
she said in a recent inter-
view. "But I do not think it
is appropriate to campaign.
When people ask if they can
assist, I say yes. But I am not
campaigning."
Mrs. Cardin rejected the
argument that she may lose
because she is a woman. The
President's Conference has
never had a female chair.
"The leadership of these
groups are enlightened," she
said. "Most of the people
there have been working
with women in leadership
positions over the years, and
I don't think this will be a
problem."
Mrs. Cardin has a record
as a trail-blazer. She was the

Shoshana Cardin:
In line for top spot?

first woman to hold the top
slots at both the Council of
Jewish Federations and the
National Conference on
Soviet Jewry.
More formidable opposi-
tion could .come from Or-
thodox activists, who re-
member Mrs. Cardin's role
during the "Who Is a Jew"
controversy in 1988.
At the time, Mrs. Cardin
headed a Cal task force on
religious pluralism that
urged the Israeli govern-
ment to remove the divisive
issue from negotiations over
the creation of a new
government. She argued
that proposed changes in
Israel's Law of Return would
result in "the perceived dis-
enfranchisement of millions
of Jews."
But even opposition from
the Orthodox community
may be on the wane.
"There are some people
who worry about her sen-
sitivity to Orthodox con-
cerns," said one leading Or-
thodox activist. "But there is
also a recognition that she is
a very smart, very tough
person who could be very
good for the Jewish corn-
munity at this point in
time." ❑

Court Fines
Neo-Nazi

Bonn (JTA) — A court in
Stuttgart sentenced the
editor-in-chief of German
Voice, the official organ of
the neo- Nazi National Dem-
ocratic Party, to a suspended
six-month sentence and a
$3,000 fine_
Theaccused, Karl-Heinz
Vorsatz, refused to repudiate
an article he published last
January. It claimed that
Poles who lived in Germany
were responsible for the ex-
pulsion and mm-der of mill-
ions of Germans.
