American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee (AIPAC),
some of the people on these
lists seem less than
delighted about their inclu-
sion.

All of this may sound
somewhat craven, but it
reflects an important point:
Jews who care deeply about
a host of issues, from health
care reform to religious
freedom, see the incoming
administration as a tremen-
dous opportunity after 12
years of conservative Repub-
lican rule.

"We have four years," said
one Jewish job-seeker who
has worked on economic
justice issues. "A job in HHS
[the Dept. of Health and
Human Services] would be
good for my career, of course.
But it's also a chance to
make a real difference. God
only knows when we'll have
another opportunity like
this one."

T

he news from Bill
Clinton's transition
headquarters may be
sparse, but at least one
sector of the federal estab-
lishment is humming.
Federal job-seekers have
been overloading phone
lines with their networking
and their FAXed resumes.
Jewish organizations and
their employees have not
been immune from the job-
hunting frenzy.
"I've been inundated.
There's no other word for it,"
said an official with one
major Jewish group here.
"Everybody seems to think I
can put in a good word for
them with the Clinton peo-
ple."
Informally, some pro-
Israel groups are circulating
lists of suggested appointees
for a wide range of positions.
Although given Mr. Clin-
ton's aversion to special in-
terest politics and the recent
controversy involving the

Political seers continue to
scrutinize the Clinton tran-
sition team, looking for hints
about the real appointments
to follow — the cabinet
secretaries and under-
secretaries and White House
staffers who will shape the
new president's policies.
So far, Jewish activists
here seem to like what they
see.
On the domestic side, Al
From will head the tran-
sition effort. Mr. From, a
White House staffer under
Pres. Jimmy Carter, is a
"tough, pro-Israel Jew,"
says political consultant
Mark Siegel. He also backs
affirmative action, but op-
poses job quotas, which are a
litmus-test for the Jewish
community.
Sandy Berger, a Washing-
ton lawyer and a policy
planning official in the
Carter administration, leads
the foreign affairs transition
team. And J. Brian Atwood,
a former State Department
official vvho now heads the
National Democratic In-
stitute, is in charge of the
changeover at Foggy
Bottom.
"Atwood has very strong

connections with the pro-
Israel community," said one
pro-Israel activist. "He has a
reputation as a real friend.
His appointment to the tran-
sition team should be a
signal that Clinton's people
will be very sensitive to
Israel's needs."
Also possibly indicative of
the Clinton team's Mideast
leanings is the fact that the
Department of Justice's
transition will be overseen
by Peter Edelman.

F-15 Maker To
Meet with Jews

The question of arms sales to
foreign governments is
about to get more complex as
the American defense in-
dustry comes to terms with
the end of the Cold War.
That issue will surely be
on the mind of John F.
McDonnell, whose name
graces the McDonnell-
Douglas aircraft company,
when he addresses the Con-
ference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations sometime in
the next few weeks.
