Washington (JTA) — Con-
cern is mounting in the
organized Jewish commun-
ity that the U.S. Supreme
Court's decision to consider
whether prayers mentioning
God can be recited at public
school graduation
ceremonies could result in
weakening constitutional
guarantees of separation
between church and state.
This is exactly the outcome
the Bush adthinistration ap-
pears to want, and it is why
it filed a brief urging the
court to take up an appeal by
the Providence (RI.) School
Committee of two lower fed-
eral court rulings.
These rulings said that a
prayer and invocation by a
rabbi at the Nathan Bishop
Middle School in Providence
violated the so-called estab-
lishment clause of the First
Amendment because by
mentioning God it was an of-
ficial endorsement of re-
The high court agreed
March 18 to hear the case,
Lee vs. Weisman, next fall.
Legal experts at Jewish
organizations fear the deci-
sion may signal the court's
willingness to erase many of
the boundaries that now ex-
ist between church and
If the court were to go
along with the administra-
tion's thinking, it could
mean there would be
"nothing left of the estab-
lishment clause," said Marc
Stern, legal director for the
American Jewish Congress.
Samuel Rabinove, legal di-
rector for the American Jew-
ish Committee, and Steven
Freeman, his counterpart at
the Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith, also express-
ed fear of an erosion of the
establishment clause.
None of the legal experts
believe the court would
restore organized prayer to
the public schools.
But, Mr. Stern warned, it
could mean that religious
symbols could be allowed on
public property seasonally or
even permanently, and it
could open the door to a re-
examination of prohibitions
on federal aid to parochial
The case centers around
the 1971 Lemon vs. Kurt-
zman decision, which for 20
years has been the standard
for deciding whether a policy
or practice violated the es-
tablishment clause. Lemon
vs. Kurtzman sets a three-


Rad Crowe

part test requiring proof that
a policy or practice have "a
secular purpose," that "its
principal or primary effect
must be one that neither ad-
vances nor inhibits religion"
and that it does not foster an
"excessive entanglement
with religion."
In the Providence case, the
1st U.S. Circuit Court of Ap-
peals in Boston found that
the graduation prayer failed
to meet the second part of
the test, because it was an
"advancement" of religion.
The suit against the school
board was filed by Daniel
Weisman, a professor of so-
cial work at Rhode Island
College, whose daughter,
Deborah, was one of the
graduates. While his family
is Jewish, Mr. Weisman
maintained that non-Jewish
students could have been
offended by the prayer.

Three years earlier when
his older daughter, Merith,
graduated, Mr. Weisman
complained to the super-
intendent because an in-
vocation speaker thanked
Jesus for the students' ac-
The main focus in the
Providence case will be on
the newest justice, David
Souter, who replaced Justice
William Brennan, the
court's most ardent defender
of the First Amendment.
AJCongress, which has
participated in the case since
its beginning, will file a brief
in support of Mr. Weisman.
ADL filed a brief in support
of Mr. Weisman in the U.S.
Court of Appeals.
Both ADL and AJCom-
mittee are expected to file
briefs in the Supreme Court
case, although no decision
has been made yet.

U.S. Speeds Up
Shipments To Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — The
United States has speeded
up delivery of vital weapons
to Israel, including Apache
attack helicopters, which
have arrived two years
ahead of the original Israel
Defense Force target dates.
David Ivri, director gen-
eral of the Israeli Defense
Ministry, disclosed the ac-
celerated schedule in an
interview published here
last month in the National
Religious Party newspaper


Mr. Ivri, who accompanied
Defense Minister Moshe
Arens during his Feb. 11
meeting in Washington with
Defense Secretary Dick
Cheney, also cited the
speedy delivery of U.S.
Patriot anti-missile systems
after the first Iraqi missile
attack on Israel as an exam-
ple of the high-level strate-
gic cooperation between the
two countries.
"I have no doubt that the
implementation of certain
logistical steps, such as the
delivery of Patriots, at the
pace which has occurred un-
til now, is the result of the
infrastructure which was es-
tablished by strategic coop-
eration," Mr. Ivri said.
Ten attack helicopters and
12 early-model F-15 aircraft
were part of the $700 million
in special military assis-
tance the Bush administra-
tion promised Israel after

Iraq invaded Kuwait last
"But delivery was delayed
when the Gulf war started"
on Jan. 17, military analyst
Ze'ev Schiff wrote in the
Feb. 21 edition of the
Jerusalem Report, an Eng-
lish-language weekly.
"Israel was informed that
not all the promised equip-
ment might be available:
Some was needed for the
war, and the whole list
would have to be reassessed
later on," Mr. Schiff wrote.
But "as things developed,
instead of the one Patriot
that the United States had
promised, six were sent to
Israel," Mr. Schiff pointed
out, adding that some might
remain there after the war.
Mr. Ivri told Hatzofeh that
strategic cooperation with
Washington has become
"normal, mutual and
reaches the highest levels."
He said this cooperation
"maintains ongoing work
and creates important per-
sonal relations."
Speaking of Israel's policy
of restraint in face of Iraqi
Scud missile attacks, the
Defense Ministry official
said it is the government's
duty to discuss and deter-
mine when to respond.
"This deliberation in-
dicates the state's maturity
and reflects on the existence
of our military capability," he
