Proud To Host All Incrcdiblc


On Capitol Hill

Just when the Jewish presence
in the House of Representatives
is at an all-time high, several
Jewish legislators are thinking
of moving on. And in the Sen-
ate, where a record number of
Jewish incumbents will be up
for re-election in 1994, several
are facing potentially stiff chal-
In Arizona, a House new-
corner, Democrat Sam Copper-
smith, reportedly is set to run
for the seat of retiring Sen. Den-
nis DeConcini, also a Democ-
rat. Mr. Coppersmith has
neither yet made his mark in
Washington nor been promi-
nent on Mideast matters. On
the other hand, Rep. DeConci-
ni, who is not Jewish, has been
an important pro-Israel voice
in the Senate.
Rep. Chuck Schumer, D-
N.Y., one of the more persistent
pm-Israel activists in the House
and a member of the Foreign
Affairs committee, is waiting
for New York Gov. Mario Cuo-
mo to decide whether to seek
another term in Albany. The
governor probably will decide
in the next few weeks. If he
gives up the governor's man-
sion, Mr. Schumer almost cer-
tainly will run for the job. And
that, in turn, would leave a vac-
uum in Washington, where the
congressman has become a re-
spected advocate for a variety
of Jewish concerns.
In the Senate, much was
made of the fact that last year's
election gave the Senate its first
minyan, if you count the
women. But four of these Jew-
ish senators are up for re-elec-
tion in 1994: Sen. Joe

Lieberman, D-Conn., Sen.
Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J.,
Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., and
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.
In addition, Howard Met-

zenbaum, D-Ohio, who is retir-
ing after 16 years in the Senate,
hopes to bequeath the seat to
his son-in-law, Joel Hyatt, a
lawyer who owns a chain of le-
gal clinics.
Sen. Kohl will face poten-
tially tough challenges from a
state senator, Bob Welch, or
from Rip. Scott Klug.
And Mrs. Feinstein, who was
elected to fill the seat vacated
by Pete Wilson, who resigned
from the Senate to make a suc-
cessful run for California's gov-
ernor, could face a stiff
challenge from Rep. Michael
Huffington or from former Rep.

the Christian Right and a lead-
ing advocate of voluntary school

Clinton Targets Jews
On Health Care

Capitol Hill may be a ghost
town during this holiday sea-
son, but the White House is
working overtime to prepare
for the upcoming struggle over
President Clinton's sweeping
health care reform package.
And the Jewish community
remains an important target for
the administration's political
"The White House believes
that the Jewish community will
have a very important role be-
cause it has always been at the
forefront of initiatives for social
change," said Sara Ehrman, the
Democrat National Committee
official serving as the Clinton
administration's official liaison


to Jewish groups. "The Jewish
community is a big part of the
administration's plans."
Ms. Ehrman has organized
a Jan. 5 strategy session for rep-
resentatives of most major Jew-
ish organizations, national and
local. The goal, she said, is to
develop strategies to mobilize
the Jewish community on key
elements of the administra-
tion's plan that enjoy hefty sup-
port among Jews, especially
universal health care coverage.
Other administration sources
suggest that if they can win
enthusiastic support from
the Jewish community — they
can win the battle in Con-
