FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1992

ov. Bill Clinton, once
thought to have a
lock on the Democrat-
ic nomination — and Jewish
vote — is fighting for his po-
litical life in New York,
where a confused and alien-
ated Jewish community
could hold the key to victory
in next Tuesday's primary.
This week, Mr. Clinton
turned his sights on New
York's restive Jewish
population, receiving a
warm and supportive recep-
tion from an army of Or-
thodox activists in Brooklyn
and a sympathetic hearing
from members of the New
York Jewish Community
Relations Council.
"He focused on the
vulnerability that Jewish
feel today," said William
Rapfogel, director of the In-
stitute for Public Affairs of
the Union of Orthodox Jew-
ish Congregations, who at-
tended the NYJCRC
meeting. "His sensitivity
came across very well and I
think people came away feel-
ing somewhat more positive
about him."
But images of the blow-
dried candidate shmoozing
with bearded Chasidim —
Mr. Clinton received a big
laugh in Brooklyn when he
suggested that he might in-
stall a glatt kosher kitchen
at the White House — did
not put to rest an unease
over his candidacy that has
more to do with personality
and character than with
positions.
"Clinton has some big
problems with this commun-
ity," said Dr. Mandell Gan-
chrow, a longtime pro-Israel
activist from Monsey, New
York — and a Clinton dele-
gate.
According to Dr. Gan-
chrow, Mr. Clinton has said
the right things on critical
issues like loan guarantees
and support for foreign aid.
But the candidate has not
yet made an emotional im-
pression on the Jewish
community, he said.
"What people need to hear
is that he really believes
that the United States and
Israel have a unique rela-
tionship that far surpasses
the absence or presence of
strategic interests. He's
started to say these things —
but not directly, and not
completely."
Mr. Clinton will probably

win the Jewish vote by
default, Dr. Ganchrow said.
Others agreed that, given
the choices of Jerry Brown,
President Bush' and Pat
Buchanan, Mr. Clinton will
do well among Jewish voters
though he has failed to
speak to their souls.
Part of that is the result of
a general mistrust of his
distinctly Southern style,
which seems alien to many
Northern, urban Jews, one
analyst suggested.
And part of the problem is
simply that this time
around, a newly vulnerable
Jewish community wants
something more from a pres-
idential candidate — a
strong, positive gut feeling
of empathy.
Others have expressed
concern about Clinton's
stable of advisors, who run
the gamut from pro-Israel
stalwarts to those with more
questionable positions on
the Middle East.
Mickey Kantor, a • Califor-
nia attorney, is a top Clinton
advisor who has won praise
from a wide range of pro-
Israel activists. David If-

counsel, has long been assoc-
iated with the American
Israel Public Affairs Com-
mittee (AIPAC).
Anthony Lake, a former
foreign policy advisor to
President Jimmy Carter and
now a foreign policy coor-
dinator for Mr. Clinton, is
regarded with less favor by
hardline pro-Israel groups;
Stanley Greenberg, one of
his pollsters, wrote a book in
which Israel was compared
to South Africa. And one of
Mr. Clinton's key supporters
in New York is Harold Ickes,
a former Jesse Jackson
operative.
Mr. Clinton has sought to
woo Mr. Jackson's sup-
porters without alienating
his critics.
"Clinton is perceived as
being the candidate of the
Jackson wing of the party,"
said political consultant
Mark Siegel. "The problem
is, he doesn't seem to know if
it's Jesse or Scoop."
Jesse Jackson is a wild
card for the Jerry Brown
campaign, as well.
Curiously, Jewish con-
cerns about Mr. Jackson —
