ut at the meeting last

Iff,ilowers expressed com-
Titment and devotion to

iqembers of the Black
obrewS, who say they are
descendants of the lost

Allowing a two-year stay in

ognized the group as Jewish
immigrants under the Law
of Return, the Israeli rab-
binate determined in 1972
that they are not Jewish and
must undergo conversion to
Judaism to stay in the coun-
try. The group members
refused.
The Israeli Supreme Court
ruled in 1986 that 45 mem-
bers of the Black Hebrews
living in Israel on eynired
visas be deported.
Because the Black Heb-
rews living in Israel re-
nounced their American
citizenship to avoid being
deported by the Israeli
government, they were not
able to leave the country un-
til recently, when the U.S.
government restored their
passports.
Through an agreement
reached with the govern-
ment in 1990, the Hebrews
were given the status of
temporary resident,:.. In
1995, they will be granted
permanent resident status,
Mr. Carter said.
Mr. Carter said his group
is in a unique position to
bridge gaps between African
Americans and American
Jews.
Mr. Carter also called on
Israel to play a strong role in
Africa, citing the large
number of Africans that con-
sider themselves Jewish.
Mr. Carter estimated that
there are approximately
30,000 blacks in the United
States who consider them-
selves Jewish.
Some factions of the Black
Hebrew movement in the
United States have de-
veloped a militant, anti-
white stance.
Nine, members of the sect
in
States were
, i 1986 of taking
part in a multimillion-dollar
scheme involving stolen
airline tickets and credit
cards and bank embezzle-
ment.
Among those convicted
was Prince Asiel Ben Israel,
the group's international
ambassador, who spoke at
the recent meeting with the
Conference of Presidents.
The convictions were
subsequently overturned on
appeal.
After his meeting here,
Mr. Carter was scheduled to
travel to Washington,
Atlanta, Los Angeles and
Chicago to meet with
various black and Jewish
leaders. ❑
