"With the Labor Department,
we are now trying to establish
seminars on unemployment,
which is obviously a worldwide
problem," she said. "It's a chang-
ing world. People change jobs
more. We want to find new ways
to deal with things like adult ed-
ucation and retraining for work-
She also has met with De-
partment of Health and Human
Services officials to share some
of Israel's expertise in absorbing
people from different cultures, a
growing problem in this country.
Israel has much to offer and
much to learn through such ex-
changes, she said.
Another part of her job in-
volves efforts to reinforce busi-
ness relationships between the
two countries.
Recently, she met with officials
of the Food and Drug Adminis-
tration in an effort to establish
common standards for drug test-
Ms. Padan is a fifth-generation
Jerusalem native. During the

her entire family were taken pris-

the dubious distinction of being
the youngest POW ever taken
from Israel.
She trained as a nurse, and be-
came active in the labor move-

Rabbi Will Come
To The Rescue

ewish political leaders have
watched the harsh war of
words between the Anti-
Defamation League and
some key figures in the Evangel-
ical Christian community with
growing alarm. That battle was
triggered by a recent ADL report
on the Christian right, and by the
furious response of some Evan-
gelical leaders, including TV
evangelist and former presiden-
tial candidate Pat Robertson.
But a Chicago rabbi who has
made a career out of building
bridges to the Evangelical com-
munity may be about to defuse
the crisis.
Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein,
founder and director of the In-
ternational Fellowship of Chris-
tians and Jews, is putting the
finishing touches on a complex
agreement that includes a par-
tial retraction and apology by
ADL Chairman Abe Foxman and
a promise by Evangelical leaders
to attend a Jewish-Christian
"summit" in Washington.
"We've been working very hard
behind the scenes," Rabbi Eck-
stein said Monday. "We're very
hopeful that things can be
worked out this week."
In a letter to Mr. Robertson,

In 1985, she became head of
the Israeli Nurses Association.
She also was the first woman to
head the Union Section of the La-
bor Party.
She is a true believer in the la-
bor movement — and in the pow-
er of that movement to bring
together workers in the United
States and Israel.
That function will take on
added importance, she said, as
economic change in the Middle
East provides a strong founda-
tion for the emerging structures
of peace.
American labor officials like
what they see at the Israeli Em-
bassy in Washington.
"We've been very impressed
with her," said Michael Perry, ex-
ecutive director of the Jewish La-
bor Committee, a group with a
long history of working to
strengthen the American labor
movement. Recently, Ms. Padan
addressed a JLC-sponsored gath-
ering in California. To quote Mr.
Perry, "She brings to her job an
intelligence and a keen appreci-
ation of the importance and the
modus operandi of the American
labor movement. And she recog-
nizes the importance of close ties
with the American labor move-
ment, which has been the
strongest supporter of Israel out-
side the Jewish community."

Mr. Foxman agreed that two spe-
cific charges in the ADL report —
including the assertion that
Robertson had failed to condemn
former Ku Klux Klan leader
David Duke — were inaccurate.
Those errors, Mr. Foxman said
in an interview, have been cor-
rected in a second edition of the
popular publication, which is now
being produced.
Mr. Robertson, in turn,
thanked the ADL leader for his
"gracious letter" and for the cor-
As part of the agreement, Rab-
bi Eckstein expects that Mr. Fox-
man and Mr. Robertson will
participate in a Washington
meeting in October that will bring
together leaders from both com-
munities to begin developing a
more effective working relation-
ship. ❑
