WASHINGTON WATCH from page 34

Christian Coalition for its inclusion of
Rev. Falwell in its conference and rally
this week. "The rally is theirs, not
ours; they have to make the decision
who is acceptable to them," he said.
"But I do believe that anybody from
our community who appears before
these groups has a responsibility to
distance themselves from people who
make those kinds of statements."
Rabbi Eric Yoffie, president of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, said the controversy
points to the dangers of courting some
religious right leaders. "It is in the
Jewish community's interests, and
Israel's interests, for support for Israel
to be mainstream, broad-based and bi-
partisan," he said. "While I under-
stand that with Israel •
under siege our
response to anybody
who is supportive tends
to be, 'Well, thank you
very much,' I think we
all understand the dan-
ger of support for Israel
being linked in a pub-
Rabbi Yoffie lic way with extremist
figures and extremist
statements."

Faith-Based End-Around

\

President George W. Bush's faith-based
initiative — already reduced to just a
package of tax breaks to encourage
charitable giving — remains caught in
congressional gridlock.
But the plan is surging forward
'within the administration, where exec-
utive agencies are using the authority
they already have to bypass Congress
and open the door to extensive fund-
ing for religious groups that provide
social and health services.
Last week, the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services gave $30
million in grants to religious organiza-
tions, mostly from the administration's
Compassion Capital Fund. Included
on the list: the Rev. Pat Robertson's
"Operation Blessing International,"
which assists hunger programs across
the country.
Nathan Diament, director of the
Orthodox Union's Institute for Public
Affairs, said, "They're just implement-
ing things that were passed during the
Clinton administration."
Marc Stern, legal director for the
American Jewish Congress, said "the
charitable choice bills passed during
the Clinton administration were very
limited to particular programs, and
they came with safeguards not built
into these new programs." 0
