There is "not a halachic ques-
tion," Rabbi Amital said pas-
sionately, adding that Rabbi
Tendler is basing his halachic po-
sition on a basic misunderstand-
ing of the facts and the reality of
what is taking place in Israel
today.
Rabbi Tendler's contention
that thepeace process is endan-
gering Jewish lives and has led
to an increase in terrorism is not
true, Amital said, and in his opin-
ion, dangerously misguided.

Yeltsin Envoy
Greets Jews

Moscow (JTA) — There was a
surprise waiting for hundreds of
Moscow Jews who attended High .
Holiday services at the Chorale
Synagogue: live greetings from a
member of Russian President
Boris Yeltsin's administration.
The chairman of the Russian
president's Commission on Citi-
zenship, Abdullah Mikitayev, told
the assembled, "The Jewish com-
munity of Russia is making a con-
siderable contribution to the
development of Russia's econo-
my and culture."
He stressed that "Jews, Mus-
lims and Christians all are rep-
resented by the government and
play a role in the democratic
process."
The short speech from the
bimah represented the first oc-
casion that a member of the
Yeltsin administration has pub-
licly addressed the Jewish com-
munity at a religious event and
may be a sign that the Jewish
community of Russia is gaining
more recognition from the gov-
ernment.
But, in an election year, Mr.
Mikitayev's remarks were not
seen as entirely apolitical. The
presidential envoy, whose com-
mission is responsible for a legal
amendment allowing Russians
dual citizenship with other coun-
tries, is the chairman of the In-
ter-Ethnic Union, a minority bloc
seeking seats in the parliamen-
tary elections set for December.
In an interview, Mr. Mikitayev
said the situation for Jews in
Russia differs from that of other
minority groups such as Greeks
and Koreans.
Despite their small numbers
compared to the general popula-
tion, he said, "Russian Jews en-
joy a far greater economic and
cultural potential than other mi-
norities."
This potential, he said, "might
inspire ethnic hatred toward the
Jews." Countering anti-Semitism
is one of the Inter-Ethnic Union's
objectives, along- with defending
minority rights.
The prime minister this month
sent out a public High Holiday
greeting to the Jewish commu-
nity.
