Conference Of Mayors
Held In Jerusalem

Jerusalem (JTA) — A con-
- ference of mayors from
around the world began on a
somber note when the host,
Mayor Teddy Kollek, an-
nounced to his guests on the
first day of discussions that
an Arab terrorist had just
stabbed five Jerusalem teen-
agers and a principal at a
local high school.
Ironically, the weeklong
conference's theme was
titled "Challenges in Gover-
ning the Multiethnic City."
Mr. Kollek, who kicked off
the conference, left after
news of the attack broke and
returned an hour later to the
group of 23 visiting mayors.
"As you all know, it is
difficult to live in a
heterogeneous city. Like
you, we are trying to find
solutions to our problems,"
Mr. Kollek said.
"If ever there was a
multiethnic city, it is
Jerusalem, whose citizens
represent the three great re-
ligions and many dozens of
ultural and national
ackgrounds," the 82-year-
old mayor said.
Of course, he added wryly,
"Not all of these citizens
want to live together, but
when they realize they must,

they learn to. And the learn-
ing process is assured by
proper governing."
The key to coexistence, he
said, "is to recognize the
rights, as well as the diver-
sity, of all residents."
The delegation of mayors
approved a statement 'con-
demning the attack on the
ORT John F. Kennedy voca-
tional school in the Talpiyot
neighborhood of eastern
The 1 3 th annual
Jerusalem conference, spon-
sored by the American Jew-
ish Congress, the U.S. Con-
ference of Mayors and the
Hanns-Seidel Foundation,
was made up of mayors from
a variety of countries, in-
cluding the United States,
Hungary, Switzerland, E-
thiopia, Germany and
Though the size and
character of their respective
cities vary widely, all of the
officials have had to cope
with ethnic tensions of one
sort or another.
During a week of semi-
nars, workshops and tour-
ing, they are to exchange in-
formation and ideas with
their counterparts from
other cities.

Orthodox Oppose
Dyan's Speaking

Los Angeles (JTA) — Or-
thodox leaders have bitterly
denounced . the Jewish Fed-
eration Council for co- spon-
soring an appearance by
Yael Dayan on March 26.
The controversial left-wing
sraeli Knesset member will
speak at the Jewish com-
munity building and share
the dais with Dr. Moustafa
Barghouthi, a Palestinian
delegate to the multilateral
Middle East peace talks.
"It is outrageous that this
woman, who goes around ac-
cusing King David of
homosexuality one day and
kissing (Palestine Libera-
tion Organization leader)
Yassir Arafat another day
will be given the respec-
tability of a federation plat-
form," Stanley Treitel, a
leading Orthodox spokes-
man, told the Heritage
Southwest Jewish Press.
Mr. Treitel said the federa-
tion had denied a platform to
right- wing leader Rabbi

Meir Kahane some years
back and should not host Ms.
Dayan now.
Another Orthodox leader,
Rabbi Elazar Muskin, presi-
dent of the Rabbinical Coun-
cil of California, said that
"when the federation's Jew-
ish Community Relations
Committee (JCRC) agrees to
co-sponsor a person who
offends every Orthodox Jew
with her outrageous
statements and actions,
well, they're just alienating
us, and we're already pretty
far apart."
The American Jewish
Congress and Americans for
Peace Now are co-sponsoring
Ms. Dayan's appearance.
Mark Spiegel, the JCRC
chairman, defended his
organization's sponsorship.
"We want to expose a range
of views," he said.
Ms. Dayan and Mr.
Barghouthi will also address
the Los Angeles World Af-
fairs Council.

Ancient tradition meets the needs
of a modern world.
