Proposed Legislation Spells 'Relief For Israel Bond Holders WASHINGTON (JTA) - Israel bond holders may be relieved to learn that their failure to declare • interest they never earned will prob- ' t ably not be considered a violation of U.S. tax law. The House Ways and Means Committee recently approved legislation that would exempt holders of Israel bonds from a provision of the 1984 Deficit Reduction Act requiring lenders to pay tax on the full amount of interest "that would accrue if the loans were made at pre- - vailing market rates. The "imputed interest provision" was aimed against -those who make artificially low-interest loans as a legal means of tax evasion. Before the legislation, for example, (CONTINUED ON PAGE 5) First Jewish Member of Parliament Elected In History of Boliva LA PAZ (JTA)—As a result of Bolivia's recent elections, a Jewish legislator, Jose Brecher, has for the first time become a member of the Chamber of Deputies, the World Jewish Congress reported. The election of the Jewish Parlimen- tarian coincides with a political event here unprecedented in the last quarter of a century: an elected government transmitted its rule to another democratically established government, and a new parliament was peacefully inaugurated. Reagan, Hussein Agree On Need For Negotiations To End Conflict Poland To Observe 35th Anniversary Of Jewish State Theater JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Polish government will observe the 35th anniversary of the Jewish State Theater, the Yiddish theater in Warsaw with a series of commemorative events at the beginning of December, Stephan Grayek, chairman of the World Federation of Polish Jews, reported here on his recent return from Poland. The Jewish State Theater was founded shortly after World War II when surviving Jewish actors returned to Poland from concentration camps and from the Soviet Union. Blu Greenberg Is Optimistic About Jewish Family's Future By Judith Franklin News Editor Blu Greenberg is a multi- faceted woman. An orthodox rebbetzin. A feminist. A scholar, author and lecturer. A self-described transition woman who has lived significant portions of her life both before and after the main thrust of the women's movement. Greenberg is also an optimist. She is optimistic about the future of the Jewish family. This year's Ar^e I. Yenkin Memorial Lecturer at the 59th Annual Meeting of the Columbus Jewish Federa-' tion on Sunday, Sept. 22, at Beth Jacob Congregation, Greenberg delivered a.very clear message: While there are many forces currently at work with the potential to destroy the Jewish family, she feels that Jewish ritual life and tradition will maintain and stabilize the Jewish family during the next 15 years. ,. Greenberg pointed out that things can and often do change very quickly and that "our less insular existence is more susceptible to erosion." Forces at work undermining the family unit are: hedonism or an orientation toward the self, the "me first" psychology; the lower birth rate; the "new" morality; a divorce culture ' in which one-third of all Jewish children under the age of 18 are being raised in single parent families; intermarriage and the women's movement. "I consider myself a staunch feminist, she noted. "I like that-title, but the impact of the .women's "movement on the Jewish family has not been entirely positive." She explained that the three most revolutionary ideas of the women's movement — that women have unlimited potential, that women have innumerable options and that a family is by no means the only way for women to obtain a sense of completion — have-contributed to this negative effect. "It is a matter of time, energy, and preoccupation," she said, "that women in the career mode don't have" to devote to their families. "The heart of the dilemna is that while a lot of factors have been wonderful for us, these same factors undermine Jewish communal life. The issue is not whether this is good or bad but how we .can make it better," she stressed. Blu Greenberg "To make it better," Greenberg suggested that parents communicate their values to and become models for their children. She also stressed that Tzedakah — giving is the antidote to hedonism and that' Jewish Marriage Encounter and outreach programs can combat high dfvorce rates and intermarriage." - "While we have a lot of work to do until the year 2000, I am optimistic," she said. "Fifteen years — no problem." Temple Israel Managing Financial The first session of the Temple Israel Foundation's series, "Managing Your Financial Resources," will be held Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 7:30 p.m., at the Temple. Fredric L\ Smith, principal in the law firm of Murphey, Young and Smith, will speak on "Estate Planning — 1985 and Beyond." The session will provide a survey of current estate planning techniques with special emphasis on major gift and estate tax changes made during the past few years and possible-changes during the next year or two.- Smith, a graduate of the Uhi-! WASHINGTON (JTA) - , President Reagan and King Hussein of Jordan agreed last week on the need for direct negotiations to end the Arab-Israel conflict. But there was no indication that the United States and Jordan had moved closer toward resolving their differences on how to reach this goal. "All of us, Jordan the United States and Israel share the same realistic objective — direct negotiations under appropriate auspices before the end of this year,", Reagan said as he bid farewell to Hussein on the south lawn of the White House. The President stressed that the way to achieve "peace and stability" for all nations in the Mideast "is through direct negotiations on the basic UN Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338." But Hussein made clear that he still insists, as he did when he was'in Washington last May, on an international "umbrella" for any negotiations. He stressed "Jordan's commitment to a negotiated settlement of the Arab-Israel conflict within the context of an international conference to implement Security Council Resolution 242." A senior Administration official, briefing. reporters on the talks, said that "some headway" had been made, but he refused to go into details. However, he indicated that it dealt with the international conference sought by Jordan. Reagan seemed even more positive in his remarks. "There are complex "and sensitive issues which must be resolved before actual negotiations can begin," he said. "But I believe these issues can be resolved." Hussein, in his meeting with Reagan, reiterated his position that an international conference must include the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, one of which is the Soviet Union. The senior official said that Reagan noted the legitimate objection of Israel to Soviet involvement since Moscow does not have any diplomatic relations with Israel.
