Each relaxation technique
is available on its own. Or,
the truly stressed-out indi-
vidual — the one who looks
like cartoon characters after
they've been hit by dynamite
— can plan an entire day of
Soothing rest.
Visitors to the clinic in-
clude everyone from profes-
sional athletes to teachers to
dentists to hairdressers (the
latter two comprising a large

portion of the clientele. The
owners suggest this is be-
cause both groups are gen-
ernlly on their feet all day).
Though their business is
relaxation, Ms. Parker and
Mr. Stutz say even they like
to get away from work for
awhile. Ms. Parker likes go-
ing to movies and being out-
doors.
Mr. Stutz prefers a vigor-
ous 40-minute walk each
day, "with our dog."

Reform Challenges
Conversion Satute

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israel's
Reform movement filed a
petition with the nation's
Supreme Court on Feb. 23 in
the hope of winning state
recognition of Reform con-
versions to Judaism per-
formed in Israel.
The Israel Movement for
Progressive Judaism and the
Association for Civil Rights
in Israel joined forces to
challenge the Interior Min-
istry's refusal to accept the
validity of such conversions.
The petitioners expect a
protracted battle in what
they describe as a con-
tinuous effort to promote re-
ligious pluralism in Israel,
saying the case cuts to the
heart of the issue for both
sides.
"What is at stake is
whether Orthodoxy is going
to have a monopoly over the
definition of Judaism and
Jewish status in Israel,"
said Uri Regev, head of the
Reform movement's Re-
ligious Action Center.
The appeal challenges the
claim by the Orthodox-
controlled Chief Rabbinate
that it has jurisdiction over
conversion when it comes to
state registration of religion.
That, said Regev, is a civil
matter.
The petitioners say the
ruling could have broad
implications for an increas-
ing number of non-Jewish
immigrants from the former
Soviet Union seeking non-
Orthodox conversions here.
The same parties won a
landmark Supreme Court
appeal in 1989 that required
the government to grant
citizenship under the Law of
Return to non-Orthodox

converts who immigrating to
Israel.
The Jerusalem District
Court upheld another appeal
of theirs only last week,
ordering the Orthodox-
controlled Interior Ministry
to recognize as Jews all
Israelis who undergo Reform
conversions outside Israel.
Regev said the aim of the
new petition is to ensure the
same religious rights for
Israelis as those of new im-
migrants.
The petition was filed on
behalf of Chava Passero
Goldstein, who was born in
Brazil and converted to
Judaism under the supervi-
sion of a Reform rabbinical
court in Israel. The Interior
Ministry has denied her re-
quest for citizenship under
the Law of Return.

Abbas Hamadei
Will Be Freed

Bonn (JTA) — Abbas

Hamadei, a Lebanese
sentenced in Germany to 13
years in jail for terrorist
acts, is expected to be releas-
ed and deported from Ger-
many next summer, seven
years ahead of schedule, the
German Press Agency re-
ported.
The planned release is re-
portedly part of a deal work-
ed out last year to secure the
release of two Germans who
had been held hostage for
three years in Lebanon and
were released last summer,
the German agency said.
Officials sources have not
neither confirmed nor de-
nied the report.
