Page 2, HERITAGE, Florida Jewish News, February 22, 1980 Rabbi Goren to Declare Transplant Permissible. by Gil Sedan JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Ash- kenazic Chief Rabbi Shlomo Goren is expected to issue a halachic decree declaring that the transplant of kidneys from a deceased person to save the life of another is permissible under Jewish law and is in fact a "mitzvah." Goren initiated the ruling apparently to still the furor in some Orthodox circles over the transplant of a kidney from slain yeshiva student Yehoshua Sloma to a nine. year-old Arab girl at Hadassah Hospital. Sloma, 23, was fatally shot by unknown assail- ants in the Hebron market place on January .31. He was a resident of the militant Orthodox town of Kiryat Arba, adjacent to Hebron. Religious circles protested vehemently that the trans- plant was done without the prior consent of the youth's family and that the recipient was violently anti-Israel. According to Aguda Israel MK Menachem Porush, she is "known for her enthusiastic support of the PLO." Goren rejected that complaint, saying it made no difference whose life was saved. The Arab child was identified as Amira Bukassah. She lives in a refugee camp near Nablus and had been coming to Hadassah Hospital regularly for dialysis treat- ment. The selection of Sloma's kidney was made on the basis of corresponding blood types. ThqLtransplant surgery was performed 45 minutes after Sloma was pro- nounced dead. A Beersheba resident was the recipient of RABBI GOREN the other kidney. A spokesman for Hadassah Hospital said the transplants were made according to law and on the recommendation of three doctors who signed the authorization. New Round in Lebanese Civil War; Syria Redeploys 'Peacekeeping' Force by Y'gzhakShargil the hamlet. The eight commanded by Maj. Saad 1T_L AVlV (JTA) -- A new round in the Lebanese civil war appears to be taking shape as Syria prepared to redeploy its "peacekeeping" force despite urgent appeals by the Lebanese government to call off or delay its evacua- tion from the Beirut area. The Syrian moves apparently have encouraged the Palestinian terrorists to resume their attacks on the Christian enclave in south Lebanon. Artillery exchanges con- intermittently last week the Palestinians and "the Christian militia. It was learned, meanwhile, that heavy shelling by the Palestin- ians of the Christian village of Diet Memes was a cover for the inlltration of terrorists into casualties there--four dead and four wounded--were the result of mines and booby traps planted by the infiltrators. There was no intervention by Israel in the latest round of fighting. Nevertheless, both Syria and the Soviet Union accused Israel of aggression and intervention in the affairs of another country. The charges were contained in a statement issued in Moscow following the visit there of the deputy secretary general of the Syrian Baath Party, Abdallah eI-Ahmar. The shelling continued with American-made 105-ram. cannons which were originally supplied to the Lebanese army. The Christian forces Haddad retaliated by shelling the terrorist stronghold at Nabatiyeh. Lebanese Prime Minister Selim aI-Hoss tele- phoned President Hafez Assad of Syria and flew to Damascus on February 12--his second trip there in a week--in a further effort to persuade the Syrians to remainin the Beirut area. The Lebanese fear that if the Syrian forces are withdrawn their positions will be token over by Palestinians. In south Lebanon, Syrian troops were encamped only three kilometers from Marj Ajoun, the largest Christian town, with tanks and artillery. Their presence apparently has encouraged the Palestinians 0 . to step up etr attacks on the Christians. .tseeh The author of the book "'Going to Jerusalem'" (Simon & Schuster) Roslyn, LL, is based on a re.telling of the characters as Jewish, on a tourist bus to the Holy City. Soviet Jews Emigration Down 30% NEW YORK (JTA) -- The new restrictions on Jewish emigration from the USSR, especially severe in the Ukraine which is the seat of the majority of the current appli- cants, is reflected in January's exit of 2803, accordirg to the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry. The figure is 30 percent below that of December. There is usually a dip in the January total, the SSJ said, but never as severe. THE ULTIMATE IN CAMPING FOR YOUR CHILD!
