(Studio) In Israel 4 orthodox students arrested after attacking Israel's chief rabbi. Part of orthodox-liberal Jewish conflict. Rabbi ruled yesterday to permit wedding of 2 Israeli's considered outcasts by traditional Jewish law.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(Israel) To what extent should Israel be a religious state? Orthodox a minority of 20% but active politically. Golda Meir's Labor party does not have absolute majority in legislature, so has aligned with religious parties. As result, most restaurants observe kosher rules. On Saturday, the Sabbath, no buses run. Israel has no civil marriage or divorce. Clash between secularists and orthodox Jews imminent.
