Los Angeles/JTA — The Reform rab-
binate will be led by a woman for the
first time.
The Central Conference of .
American Rabbis has nominated as its
president Rabbi Janet Marder, 48, cur-
rently vice president of the CCAR and
senior rabbi of Congregation Beth Am
in Los Altos Hills, Calif.
Marder will begin her two-year
tenure March 29 at the CCAR's 2003
convention, after an election that is
regarded as a formality.
She will succeed Rabbi Martin
Weiner, senior rabbi at Congregation
Sherith Israel in San Francisco. The
CCAR, which represents 1,800
Reform rabbis in North America, is
the largest group of Jewish clergy.

New York- /JTA — The site of the
Triangle shirtwaist fire was designated
a New York City landmark.
The site of the fire that killed 146
workers, many of them Jewish immi-
grant women, became a landmark on
the 92nd anniversary of the fire. The
fire helped spur the U.S. labor move-
ment and workplace safety measures.

Converts In Israel
Face Problems

Jerusalem/JTA — People who moved
to Israel and converted there can no
longer receive automatic citizenship,
Israel's attorney general has ruled.
Such converts, who are no longer eli-
gible under the Law of Return, must
now apply under the Law of Entry,
which mandates a four-and-a half year
wait for citizenship. The move was
made because Israeli officials believe
illegal foreign workers are using con-
version as a way to obtain citizenship.
