came in, rabbis used to look the
other way and convert children
of non-observant adoptive par-
ents. "It was a fiction. Now it's fin-
ished," said Mr. Dayan. Secular
adoptive parents are now forced
to choose between observing
mitzvot against their will and get-
ting their children converted, or
maintaining their lifestyles and
raising non-Jewish children.
There are efforts to find a loop-
hole in Jewish law to get around
this agonizing problem. So far
none has been found.
The whole disastrous condition
of foreign adoption for Israelis fi-
nally has been recognized by the
government. In May 1993 Israel
joined 64 other countries in sign-
ing the Hague Convention to reg-
ulate intercountry adoptions. To
comply with the convention, the
government has proposed a new
law whereby foreign adoptions
would be arranged via Child Wel-
fare Services.
However, the government's
proposal, introduced by Justice
Minister David Liba'i, would keep
the restriction that Israeli cou-
ples could only adopt children of
their own religion. If as Ms. Blass
believes, "There are no Jewish
children abroad available for
adoption," the government pro-
posal would make it impossible
for any but observant Orthodox
parents to adopt foreign children
and raise them in Israel as Jews.
Mr. Liba'i, however, says the
courts here would have the lati-
tude to prevent such discrimina-
tion.
Yet a senior Justice Ministry
source confirmed what all ob-
servers assume: That Mr. LibaTs
proposal is part of the govern-
ment's agreement to lock in all
aspects of the religious status quo
as the price for the Shas (Sephar-
di Orthodox) party's return to the
ruling coalition.
Mr. Liba'i may give assurances
that his proposal wouldn't stop
non-observant Israeli Jewish cou-
ples from adopting abroad, but
many people remain uncon-
vinced. Likud and Meretz have
introduced their own proposed
laws that make no mention of re-
ligion, and that also would allow
the creation of non-profit adop-
tion agencies, licensed by the Jus-
tice Ministry.
Within a few months, Ms.
Blass said, a representative of
Child Welfare Services should be
set up in South America to shep-
herd Israeli parents through the
labyrinth of adopting there.
While she acknowledges that
Child Welfare Services has al-
ways been underfunded, under-
staffed, and subject to political
pressures, she is dead set against
any private agencies, even li-
censed and regulated by the Jus-
tice Ministry, from entering the
adoption field. She argues that
private agencies would make a
"business" out of adoption.

For some
children, visions
of growing up
may be simply
that. Visions.

Children with cystic fibrosis
want to grow up. They have
dreams of the future just like
every other child.
More than half of them will
live into their twenties, but that's
when life should he beginning
not ending.
You see, cystic fibrosis is an
hereditary disease that attacks a
child's lungs and makes it very
hard to breathe. Eventually, it's
fatal. And there is no cure. So far
But there is hope. Recent
discoveries in genetic research
can lead to stopping cystic
fibrosis once and forever.
The Cystic Fibrosis Founda-
tion supports this research. But
we need your help. The money
you give today will be used
immediately to continue the
research. And it will go a long .
way in helping find the cure.
Your gift of $15, S25, or even
more will give a child more than
just a vision of hope. Give the
future... call 1-800-343-4300,
ext. 321 today. VISA/Master Card
