NJCRAC Move Sparks
Washington Turf Battle

Several months ago, the
National Jewish COmmun-
ity Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC) hired a
part-time consultant to help
out with its chores in Wash-
ington — a decision that did
not sit well with some of
NJCRAC's major consti-
tuent agencies.
For several years,
NJCRAC has been serviced
in Washington on a rotating
basis by three member agen-
cies with Washington offices
— the Anti-Defamation
League, the American Jew-
ish Congress and the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee.
The new arrangement

ly second- in-command at the

fice, was designed to provide
more immediate contact
with policy-makers and
more up-to-date information
on happenings in the capital.
But that has revived fears
that NJCRAC is planning to
open a permanent Washing-
ton office.

ject," said Abraham Fox-
man, ADL's executive direc-
tor. "Basically, it is in the
interests of the community
not to duplicate services.
And the issue goes back to
what the role of NJCRAC
should be with respect to the
national agencies. NJCRAC
is a conveyer belt, a com-
munications link; it is a
vehicle which, when there are
disagreements, can help us
develop a consensus.
But NJCRAC officials see
the move as a natural one.
"The purpose of the ar-
rangement is simply to serve
as NJCRAC's eyes and ears
in Washington," said Larry
Rubin, the group's executive
director. "Washington is a
very sensitive area for the
national agencies. We are
arguing that by working
together, we can provide the
community with a better
product — especially with
regard to domestic issues."

The administration got a
quick lesson in the in-
tricacies of Jewish politics
recently when a White
House ceremony to thank re-
ligious leaders for their sup-
port of the Desert Storm
operation stirred up a minor
hornet's nest.
The original guest list for
the ceremony included
representatives of the Union
of American Hebrew Con-
gregations, the United Syn-
agogues, and Agudath Israel
of America, as well as a
number of Christian groups.
But the White House
reconsidered after it was

The lineup was quickly ad-

its support for the ad-

The meeting was attended
