WASHINGTON (JTA) - The Reagan Administration will try over the next few weeks to get Israel and Jordan to agree on the conditions for an international conference that will lead to direct negotiations between the two countries, according to a senior administration official. "I think that a large measure of agreement exists already on some of the main points," the official said in briefing reporters on what he said was a year of "incremental" progress in the Middle East peace process during 1985. "It's now our job to try to work and fill in the gaps," he' said. But, he stressed, "we continue to view direct negotiations between the parties as the only productiveway to go. An international conference is acceptabkvto us, but, only as an event that would lead to direct negotiations - between the parties.'' Denies Change In U.S. Policy . The official denied that this was a change in U.S. Temple Israel To Sponsor Weekend For College Youth Harriet Kallenberg' and Bob Burman, co-chairpersons of Temple Israel's Youth Activities Committee, announced that the Temple is sponsoring a special Shabbat Service for all college- age youth on Friday, Dec. 27, beginning at 8 p.m. Students can participate in the evening by reading a part in the service (either Hebrew and/or English) or in a panel discussion immediately following services.

He said Administration spokesmen had used the words international "auspices," "framework" and "context" as a "signal" that the U.S. had no specific idea on how the conference should be shaped. \ "Whatever promises to lead to successful direct negotiations is, obviously, our preferred choice," he said. "We recognize that, whatever is agreed upon has got to meet the political needs of the parties involved." ! In Jerusalem meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry said it does not believe the State Department has changed its position on an international conference on the Middle East..A Foreign Ministry source told Voice of Israel Radio that the text of the State Department's announcement on the issue has been studied and found to contain no problematic elements inasmuch as it made convening an international forum contingent on direct negotiations. -Soviet Role Ruled Out The official continued to rule out a. Soviet role in the peace process. He said up to now the Soviets "have excluded themselves" by not having diplomatic relations with Israel and supporting elements in the Arab world Ahavas Sholom 'Maccabee Mania' Welcomes Over 70 Guests Dec. 7 Ahavas Sholom Synagogue welcomed over 70 guests to their "Maccabee Mania" Chanukah party Saturday night, Dec. 7. The festivities included a tournament of games, a variety of food and a host of raffled prizes. .. "It was just fantastic. Good fun. Good food," said Toby Greenfeld, reflecting back on the evening. "Many people contributed to the success of this party," said Teri Lautman, committee member, "especially the merchants who donated raffle prizes." These' were Modes Camera, film; Capital Photo, film enlargement; Marraco Service, babysitting; Kosher Buckeye, burger and fries; Yum Yum Shop, kosher pizza; Drexel Theatre, show tickets; Rabbi Banayan, free mezuzah and free mezuzah check-t ing; Bargain Buy-It, assort- opposed to the peace process. The official maintained that both Israel and Jordan have agreed on the international conference, although Israel calls it a "forum" and the need to have Palestinian representation as part of a Jordanian-Palestinian delegation at every step of the negotiations. He said the issue of the U.S. meeting with a joint Jordanian-Palestinian delegation first has been relegated to "the sidelines" as being an "unnecessary'complicating factor." ed children's gifts; Schottenstein Supplies, leather attache case; Martin's Kosher Foods, $5 gift certificate; Jerry Swedlow, arcade macliine. * Joanne Friedman, chairwoman of the event, commented, "I am very pleased with the cooperation be-, tween the Sisterhood and Brotherhood, who worked so closely together in pulling this off. In particular, my committee members worked very hard: Rabbi Hirsh Chinn, Paul Tannenbaum, Tom Schottenstein, Allen Friedman and Teri Lautman. We also found the perfect replacement for Richard Dawson in Jeff Lautman, who did a wonderful job as MC for a spontaneous 'Family Feud.'" The Maccabee Mania committee is planning a more , . (CONTINUED ON PAGE 10) International Singer To Perform At Agudas Achim On January 18 Irina Fogelson, international singer of Yiddish, Hebrew, Russian, American, Italian, Spanish and Gypsy songs, will perform at the Agudas Achim Synagogue on Jan. 18 at 7:30 p.m. Irina Fogelson Fogelson's performance is sponsored by the Russian- American Club. Tickets are $5 ancTmay be obtained at the Leo Yassenoff Jewish Center, the Agudas Achim Synagogue or from Simon Simakovsky. In 1980 at the Yiddish Music Festival, State Senator Martin Markowitz introduced Fogelson to the people of New York. She had just arrived from the Soviet Union bringing a fresh, well- trained voice and magnetic personality to Yiddish music. Her exciting performance caused Hershel Fox to declare her "a new star." Before leaving the Soviet Union, Fogelson had graduated from the Leningrad Conservatory, in both the department of voice and the de- partment of piano. So moving were her performances, that an elderly actress, Ester Roitman, from the Solomon Michoals Theater in Moscow, closed in 1948, became her mentor. Since no sheet music survived from the time of the theater, the actress used her memories to collaborate with an arranger and Irina to produce a new show of Yiddish folksongs, "Du Bist Mein Mazl." It was a montage of songs about (a young girl's quest for love. Since Fogelson arrived ifl- the United States, she .has expanded her repertoire of Russian, Gypsy and Yiddish folksongs to include Israeli, American, and other popular music. However, Irina's greatest joy has come from learning Hebrew religious music, an opportunity she did not have in the Soviet Union. During the last five years, Fogelson has sung in concert for many organizations, such as the Jewish.Lecture Bureau, the Workmen's Circle and Hadassah. She has appeared in Paris, Rome, Washington, D.C, Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago and Philadelphia, as well as in a Yiddish, film, Wheel, produced by David Green- wall.
