MOTHER 'S DAY
IS MAY 10th

Israel's security was in-
sured, and he criticized
• "intransigent" religious
groups which opposed the
peace agreement with
Egypt. He continues to ad-
vocate a Middle East set-
tlement based on mutual
compromise.
So how will this social, po-
litical and religious maver-
ick disburse the $800,000,
which he formally received
last year at London's Buck-
ingham Palace, where he is
better known as the Lord
Jakobovits of Regents Park?
He could, he allows, "live
happily and expensively
ever after," but instead he
will devote a chunk of the
award to the business of ap-
plying traditional Jewish
teachings to contemporary
issues — "anything that
promotes the study and pop-
ularization of Jewish •
classical teachings on
modern moral problems."
A Jewish approach to
medical ethics is a field he
has personally pioneered
and which he is anxious to
see pursued further through
debate and study on such
subjects as genetic engineer-
ing, transplants, sex
changes, brain death and
experimentation on em-
bryos.
But his interest in the ap-
plication of religion to the
pressing problems of the day
is not confined to the
medical field: he would also
like to help support studies
that involve a religious ap-
proach to such diverse sub-
jects as sex education in
schools ("they should know
it in a context that sanctifies
it") and business morality
("religious teachings have a
bearing on takeovers, in-
- dustrial relations, money
lending").
And there are other sub-
jects. He hopes that grants
from his fund will encourage
scholars to tackle such
issues as "the family under
siege," the problems of mar-
riage breakdown, teenage
pregnancy, the international
arms trade.
Most of all, though, the
Templeton Prize, whose
previous recipients include
■ Mother Teresa, Alexander
Solzhenitsyn and Billy
Graham, will enable the
chief rabbi the freedom to
expand the task of providing
a spiritual dimension to
worldly problems.
The task of Judaism now,
he says, is to help Jews re-
cover their faith and apply it
to the daunting problems
that face them and the prob-
lems that confront man-
kind. E
