"We're very relieved at this de-
cision," said Rabbi David Saper-
stein, director of the Religious
Action Center of Reform Judaism
in Washington. "This strongly
reaffirms the basic principles of
church-state separation. In mak-
ing the decision,the court has
helped protect the religious free-
dom of all Americans, and reli-
gious minorities in particular."
He also said the decision was
a major blow to Christian right
"Their whole strategy of get-
ting more government support
for religious institutions received
a big setback in this case," Rabbi
Saperstein said. "That's one of the
most overlooked aspects of the
Kiryas Joel decision."
The decision was also good
news for Jewish activists who
hadworried that the Supreme
Court was edging towards scrap-
ping the"Lemon test" — a legal
precedent that has become the
Court's benchmark for deciding
when a government action cross-
es thechurch-state line.
In their decision, the justices
sidestepped the Lemon test,ac-
cording to Elliot Mincberg, legal
director for People for theAmer-
ican Way. "The Court showed
that it doesn't have to use Lemon
in every case," he said. "I have no
problem with the idea of using
different tests for different cas-
That aspect of the Kiryas Joel
decision, according to severalan-
alysts, will send legal scholars
scrambling to find alternativele-
But even supporters of the de-
cision worried about the chil-
drenaffected by the case.
"This isn't just a case of con-
stitutional principle," said Marc-
Stern, legal director for the
American Jewish Congress,
which argued against the special
school district. "Now the obliga-
tion is to provide these children
with an education. That doesn't
disappear because of the
Supreme Court decision."

Geneva (JTA) — A cable televi-
sion station in Basel will soon be-
gin relaying transmissions of
Israel Television to some 1,000
Jewish families living in the
northwestern Swiss city.
The decision came after some
three years of requests for the
transmissions from Hebrew-
speaking families living in Basel.
Among the arguments that fi-
nally convinced Balcab, the Basel
cable station, to proceed was that
the city would gain additional
publicity when the centenary of
the first Zionist Congress will be
marked there in 1997.
The cost for installing a 24-foot
antenna is $60,000.
