when their own children are
old enough to begin some
form of Jewish education.
That's when the parents,
often in their 30s, consider
joining a synagogue in prep-
aration for a future bar or
bat mitzvah for their chil-
dren.
Their own bar or bat mitz-
vah may have been the last
ritual they performed, and
the preparation for that day
is often recalled with bitter
memories of learning to read
and chant a language they
did not understand. But the
pull of tradition leads these
adults back into the organiz-
ed -Jewish world so that their
own children can repeat the
experience.
It is up to us to provide
more meaningful answers so
that we do not lose the next
generation to the notion that
Jewish life has nothing to
offer. ❑

Israeli Army
Admits Arabs

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Israel Defense Force is about
to break a tradition that has
governed it since the state
was founded 43 years ago: It
will now admit Arabs.
Dr. Alexander Blei, the
prime minister's adviser on
Arab affairs, announced
over the weekend that Arab
citizens of Israel would be
accepted as volunteers for
the IDF.
At this stage, however,
only Christian Arabs will be
eligible. There are about
107,000 Christians out of an
Israeli Arab population of
800,000.
Dr. Blei's announcement
drew a sharply negative
reaction from Ibrahim
Nimer Hussein, chairman of
the National Committee of
Arab Mayors. He objected to
the artificial distinction
between Christian and
Moslem Arabs, noting that
all are Arabs.
According to Mr. Hussein,
no Arab should enlist in the
IDF until there is peace in
the region.
The only other minority
allowed to volunteers are
Bedouins, who serve in the
IDF mostly as trackers.
Israeli Druse and Circas-
sians, on the other hand, are
subject to compulsory
military service, like the
majority of Jewish citizens.
