NCJW may attract other Jewish
groups to the fight against Alabama
Attorney General Bill Pryor, nominat-
ed to the 11th Circuit Court of
Appeals in Atlanta.
A Jewish activist said, "Pryor has a
very troubling and aggressive record
on church-state issues, in addition to
his positions on abortion. This is a
nomination that could get wide atten-
tion in the Jewish community."
Pryor's advocacy of things like pub-
lic school prayer, in particular, could
attract Jewish groups that traditionally
stay out of judicial nomination battles.
Pryor has also earned the enmity of
homosexual rights, civil rights and
environmental groups.

The Lubavitchers may hearken back to
an older kind of Jewish community,
but their fund-raising is thoroughly
modern.
This week, American
Friends of Lubavitch was
expected to raise some-
where in the six figures,
according to Washington
sources, at a dinner hon-
oring an administration
official and a leading
Jewish member of
Congress. Sponsoring the -
dinner — and contributing heavily to
Lubavitch activities in Washington —
were a long list of big
defense contractors with
names like Boeing,
Lockheed and General
Dynamics.
The Wednesday night
dinner honored Dov
Zackheim, the comptrol- Lowey
ler of the Defense
Department, and Rep.
Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., a senior member
of the Jewish delegation in the House.
The Lubavitchers also honored H.
Patrick Swygert, president of Howard
University, a traditionally African
American college in Washington.
Rabbi Levi Shemtov, the fast-mov-
ing Lubavitch representative in
Washington, declined to say how
much money he expected to raise, but
said it will all go to a good cause —
'expanding our whole range of activi-
ties in Washington."
That includes the group's active
outreach to Jewish Capitol Hill
staffers and administration officials,
its ambitious plans for expanding the
program that puts up the national
menorah each year behind the White
House and its Jewish campus support
center. 1-7
