From the Editor June 1985

By Leonard Fein

Moment Magazine, June 1985

A discussion by Editor Leonard Fein of some of the topics and news of note contained in this month's Moment Magazine. In this Issue, Fein discusses the Law of Return, and the hijacking of the political process in the Knesset by a small subset of Ultra-orthodox Jews. American conservative Jews are up in arms over a vote by the Knesset that would deny Conservative rabbis the ability to confirm and oversee conversion to Judaism by limiting this religious authority to just Orthodox rabbis.

Topic: Israel-Diaspora Relations, Masorti Judaism, Orthodox Judaism, Religious Observance, Conservative Judaism, Prejudice, Haredi (Ultra-Orthodox) Judaism, Religious Denominations, Diaspora Relations, Aliyah, Jewish Identification, Discrimination, Community Building
