leaving by the fact that a religious
organization will fund their flight,"
said Pooya Dayanim, president of the
Iranian Jewish Public Affairs
Committee and the acting spokesman
for the Council of Iranian American
Jewish Organizations.
"We just hope that Agudath doesn't
only choose religiously observant Jews
from Iran, but allows us to recom-
mend others who could really use the
help," Dayanim said.

Agudath Israel has "been helpful to
any Jew who wants to come from
Iran," Bloom responded. "Our mis-
sion is a mission of community serv-
ice." However, whenever possible the
organization attempts to make
arrangements for the refugees to go to
a religious community, Bloom said.
"Another hat that we wear is to try to
set up Orthodox communities" in the
United States, he said.
While the Shah was in power,
Agudath Israel helped Jewish religious
students leave Iran when they were
not allowed to practice their religion
freely. Many of them are now spiritual
leaders of Iranian Jewish communities
in the United States, Bloom said.
One is Rabbi Reuben Khaver in
Baltimore. He maintains that Agudath
Israel "is committed to helping the
Iranian Jews" out of concern for their
safety, not to proselytize. Most
Iranians seeking visas probably don't
need Agudath's financial aid, Rabbi
Khaver said, suggesting that the
money "should be used only for those
really in need, in small communities."
Bloom described the money not as a
grant but as "a loan or a layout." While
it may take families some time to pull
together the $2,100, Agudath Israel
assumes most have enough resources to
pay the loan back eventually.
"We're just using our credit to allow
Iranians to come out faster," he said.
"Until_ they come up with cash, they
can't get out. We don't expect to have
to come up with millions of dollars to
make that happen," he said.
If the organization ends up donating
more money than expected, "our
board members, many of whom are
Holocaust survivors or children of
Holocaust survivors, unanimously and
emotionally support the measure" and
are willing to put up the money,
Bloom said.
Hetfield praised Agudath Israel for
"filling an important vacuum," and
said he hopes the agreement will
inspire other groups to follow suit. ❑

As of 12/24/02
www.jewish.com results show
66% feel America is not ready
to elect Lieberman in 2004.

"I would love to see an elected
Jewish president. However,
Lieberman and definitely
not a Democrat. I used to be a
Democrat until I saw what they
were evolving into."

"I don't feel it is important
whether or not we have a

someone who is for the best
interests of the United States!"
