Maj, Gen. Chnim Bar-Lev, Israeli Chief of Staff, taid the action was even more concentrated than that of last February 15 when Israeli jets and artillery struck h e a v y blows at Jordanian gun positions which had been .shelling Israeli border settlements. The Israeli settlements hit by Jordanian guns were Massada, Ashdot Yaacov, Tel Katzir, Shar Hogalan. Kfar Huppin, Beth Jobeph. Yardena and Gesher. It was at Ma.ssada that four kibbutz members were killed when 8 tractor-drawn platform on which they were riding hit a mine in a banana plantation. Four others were injured, three of them seriously. Among the injured, though only slightly, was Frederick Ror,cn!e!d, a 26ycir-old volunteer from Washington. D.C.

It was obvious from the damage that the Jordanians were mti-nt on hitting civilians, destroying homes, utilities and means of livelihood. The children's home was hit at Massada and the kindergarten was hit at Tel Katzir. Cowsheds, chicken houses, water pumping systems and electric power houses and wires were blasted.

Louisville. Ky. UTA>—A Reform rabbi has resigned the pulpit he held here for 22 years to serve as a civil rights official. Rabbi Martin M. Perley told the members of Congregation B'rith Sholom. in his final sermon, that he had accepted the appointment of executive director of the Louisville find Jefferson County Human Relations Commission because "religion cannot be lived in a vacuum." Dr. Perley snid he often had been chided for speaking out on civil rights, though his congregation generally bad acquiesced in his civil rights activities and adopted a strong statement on human rights in 1064.

But his stand against the Vietnam w;ir "angered some of the ino.4 influential members of the congregation." That led him to conclude that he had failed to convey the true meaning of Judaism" as lie understands it, the Rabbi said. Dr. Perley was elected head of the Kentucky Board of Rabbis two months ago and was previously the director of the Hillcl Foundation at Indiana University. He came to Louisville in !!t1f> after three and a half years as an Army Chaplain during World War II.

The Rabbinical Assembly announced here that it was nearing a comprehensive revision of the synagogue liturgy which will focus attention on tiie three major Jewish events of the past' 2.000 years-the Hitler holocaust, the rebirth of Israel and the re-unification of Jmisalr-in. The status of the revision was reported at the With annual convention of the association of Conservative rabbis by Rabbi Jules H.'ulow, Assembly director of publications. Declaring that the liturgy "must also express our concern for peace in our time" and that 'all these factors must be integral to the fabric of each service," Rabbi Ifarlow stressed that the basic elements of the liturgy would be retained in new prayerbooks for the Sabbath, the High Holy Days and the festivals. He reported that a new daily prayerbook. incorporating these elements, had already been published. He told Ills colleagues that "find IK not dead; lie has merely fallen asleep at some of our services." Several rabbinical delegates reported experimental efforts to make synagogue services more relevant to the times, including substitution of scenes from contemporary plays for sermons, Mid use of musical instruments —such as the recorder and cello —in place of the organ.

New York (JTA)--Presidents of two Orthodox rabbinical organizations denounced a statement by a Reform rabbinical counselor of Jewish students at C o I u m b i a University urging draltees to refuse to serve in the armed forces and condoning '•meaningful" pre-marital sex relations among college students. The statement was made last week by Rabbi A. Bruce Goldman in a report to the University's Jewish Advisory Board, liabbi Goldman was sharply criticized by Rabbi Pesach Z. Levovitz, president of the Rabbinical Council of America, and Rabbi Bernard I3erzon, president of the Rabbinic Alumni of the Rabbi Isaac Elchanon Theological Seminary at Yeshiva University. Rabbi Levovitz deplored the new "liberal attitude" toward pre-marital relations, asserting that the institution of marriage was being "undermined" by such positions. He disclosed that he planned to submti to the June convention of his organiza-

tion a series of proposals on the problem, including one for creation of pre-marital seminars to stress the spiritual and religious aspects of marriage and to require engaged Jewish couples to undertake a period ol study on the Jewish religious approach to marriage before they become wed. Rabbi Iicrzoii said that "whatever difference of opinion there may be about the Vietnam war within the American Jewish community, as within the rest of the American community. Jewish law requires obedience to the law of the land and is opposed to defiance of duly constituted governmental authority such as advocated by Rabbi Goldman when he said Jewish young men should refuse to serve if called up." He added that Rabbi Goldman's approval of "meaningful" pre-marital relations was "clearly contrary to Jewish lav/ and tradition and can lead to the breakdown of the moral and psychological foundations of individual and family life."

week that a ''New Left" radical theater group, the San Francisco Mime Troupe, was guilty of anti-Semitism in its presentation of a distorted adaptation of an Kith Century Italian farce. The production was given here on the Irvine Campus of the University of California. The Council's bulletin pointed, out that in its original form, the farce, "L'Amant Militaire." portrayed a moncy-h n n g r y Italian profiteer. In the version presented here, the troupe depicted the villain "as a Jew with an exaggerated hook nose, n Yiddish accent, sexually depraved and obsessed with making money." The San Francisco group, whose presentations are directed to creating anti-war feeling, is popular in underground and "hippie" circles in major American cities. The Council bulletin noted that "unfortunately, young college students unaware and uninterested in the history of anti-Semitism, do not .recognize that, such stereotypes build racial and religious hatred."

JERUSALEM UTA) — The news of President Johnson's announcement that he would not be a candidate for re-election stunned Israel. Although officials maintained a strict silence to avoid any position of appearing to intervene in the internal affairs of another country, the general feeling here was that there would not be. any-major changes in United States policy toward Israel as a result of Mr. Johnson's decision. The view was expressed that support of Israel has become a tenet of American foreign policy regardless of the person holding the Presidency, It was also asset leu Uml tiie United States interest in m a i n t a i n i n g proWestern influence in the Middle East depended on the existence of a strong I s r a e l and that therefore United States efforts to bring about an agreed Israeli-Arab peace not at Israel's expense did not involve considerations of vote-getting in American presidential races.

By Sally Simon Jewish children of preschool or kindergarten age are usually enrolled in a synagogue Sunday School, and later attend Hebrew School two or three times a week. The purpose? The need to educate our young and pass on our heritage, (or perhaps only to have a Bar-Mitzvah celebration!) Most of us agree that Jewish education is necessary, for without it, Judaism couldn't survive But time is scarce, and teenagers are busy with homework and countless outside activities. Some find time to carry on their Jewish education throughout their high school years. Many however, let their Jewish education end at an early age. The question this week is not "Do you believe in Jewish Education" but rather, "To what extent do yon believe Jewish education is necessary?'1

John Hoberman, senior "I think that the most desirable education is one of liberal exposure to the lives of different types of people and to the thoughts of all great men. The strong Jew is one who can maintain his identity during liberal exposure/for he can best apply his learning to the future of his religion. Contrasted with the blindly faithful, I prefer the Jew who maintains his convictioas by choice. It is he who is best prepared to pass Judaism on to his children."

By MILTON I'ltlKDMAN Efforts are being made by Jewish leaders to .stem a rising tide of fear and resentment generated among Jews by Black Power anti-Semitism as the "long, hot summer" approaches. Conceding that 'there is Negro anti-ScmitiMu" and Icniiin;; it "deplorable,'' Dr. William A Wexler, interim t i o 11 a 1 B'nai , B'rith president [ has insisted that . . - . " . ' "it is also exag » , , „ | gorated." | ' ' '.„. Dr. W e x l c r ' s j „ \ address bef o r e j - 1 • the recent (n-[.* f fnnial national convention of Friedman B'nai B'rith Women made a major point of reminding the Jewish community of its special responsibility to help build "the kind of society that is our only salvation from riots and violence." His theme was that (he "first step in stopping a riot is to avert it." Deploring the quibbling over the recommendations of (lift Federal Commission on Civil Disorders, Dr. Wexler said this is "fiddling while (he gheKo burns." lie warned tlie Jewisii women that "Suburbia is no longer a hiding place." He said thai Jews must cither "stand up and be counted" in the rough struggle for human equality or "stand a good chance of being counted

out."

Jewish WbfoN Dr. Wexler insisted thai Jews could neither reject nor ignore the Negro and still meet "tlie test of Jewish ethics." Aware that Jews are generalizing about Negroes because of provocative nnti-Semitism promoted by a few Negro extremists, Dr. Wexler reported that the latest AntiDefamation League studies revealed that Negroes are less anti-Semitic than white nonJews. Negroes were also found to be less anti-white than whites are anti-Negro. Dr. Wexler noted that Black Power extremists have denounced Israel and spread "cruel, anti-Semitic generalizations." He reported that "seldom does one hear today a word of recognition of the years of civil, rights activity by Jews nnd Jewish groups," "In response," said Dr. Wexler, "I have heard some Jews—wellmeaning Jews who in years past have added their strengh to the civil rights cause—now say (hat their patience is exhausted." Dr. Wexler said his reply to Eiich Jews was; "Your impatience- is misplaced. The Negro cries out for Black Power because he feels so utteHy without power. He lias been given

Tin: Jewish immigrant arrived here with a tradition that exalted education, with a new burst of political freedom, with a white skin, and with a rooted, if small, Jewish community to welcome him." "lint the Negro arrived in chains. And for 100 years after his ['mancipation he was kept in political, economic, educational and social bondage. Heis still not freely welcomed to middle-class suburbia. Yet sub—1 urbia seems to insist that lie show middle-class values."

THE 1J.N, EPISTLE The U.N. wrote its own Epitaph in its recent Epistle to Israel. The text of the Council's perfidious resolution of March 24th against Israel applies more accurately to the Arabs. The U.N. did not threaten sanctions or condemn Arabs for their 1!) years of "large scale, carefully planned murders" of Israelis; for their 19 years of boycotts, embargos, etc.; for their recent drownings and sinking of the Elat; for their continued open threats of "military action by their Armed Forces" against Israel; "in flagrant violation of the U.N. Charter and its cease-fire resolutions." Ironically, the U.N. condemned Israel for taking all measures necessary to protect its safety and security. The U.N. Security Council, dominated by

tlie Rnsso-Aral) Axis, arbitrarily found Israel, the victim of Arab aggressions, guilty without a fair and impartial trial and without the slightest semblance of due process of law. 'But Israel's safety and security does not depend upon the whims, caprices or dictates of any Rasputon Princes or Laputan.s of the U.N. Her safety and security depends upon her own resources, her heroic stand and remaining in all of the areas presently occupied by her. Israel is not alone; she is not small; Her tanks and planes are manned by the shrouds of ghosts, Her guns are loaded by the smoke and ashes of "The Six Million Jews." Sol A. Dnnn, Detroit, Mich.

By Mickey Gerelick | Anyone watching television. Sunday evening could not help but be aware of the state of panic experienced by the television newsmen following President Johnson's annuoncement that he was not a candidate for reelection. The u s u a l l y loquacious news pros were at a complete loss ior words. Subsequently the fluency returned and miles of printed and spoken words in t lie past week have attempted to analyze the implications of the president's withdrawal. Since I am not in the same l e a g u e with the professional news commentators and political analysts, there seemed little point in my making any comments on the matter. To the few people who asked it I would, I simply explained that as long as Huntley and Brinkley refrain from editorializing on chicken soup and other trivia which is my forte, I will stay out of political commentary. And that's the way I meant it to be, except that I have been increasingly disturbed by the question of one Jewish Press reader who asked, "How about (he Jewish angle—is it good or had for the Jews that Johnson isn't limning?" Perhaps I'm naive, but I'm disturbed by the parochial implications of that question. Like General Motors, it seems to me that what's good for the Jews is good for the rest of the country and vice-versa. I can therefore offer no answer to the question of which political candidate or party "is good for the Jews," since I am offended by the question. I do believe, however, that statements of positions on a number of issues must be made clear by the candidates before we go to thfe polls in November. The Issues • The issues of the Vietnam War, the urban problems, taxes, crime etc. are certainly prime considerations for all voters. I believe however, (hat American policy with regard (o Israel and (lie middle-east is of equal importance to all Americans and not.the sole c o n c e r n of American Jews. The Middle East must certainly be part of the global commitment of the United States, if we mean what we say about fighting communism. Israel stands alone in the middle-east, the only democracy among .hostile Arab nations who are receiving increasing support from the Soviet Union. This

seems to me to be a basic question of American foreign policy. What is tlie rationale that would allow us to light communism in Vietnam and ignore Its dangers in the middle-east? In view of the five point policy with regard to the middleeast voiced by President Johnson last June and again in January, I have questions about the present State Department policies. Point one was "Every nation in Hie Middle East has a fundamental right to live and to have (bis right respected by its neighbors." Yet when Israel retaliated at the infringement of this right by Jordanian terrorists, the United States supported the censure of Israel by the United Nations. Is it only in Vietnam that we condone retaliation against aggression? "The arms race must be ciulx'd by (lie nations of (he M i d d I <; East and by the big powers," was another point of the program, yet the U.S. State department sees fit to supply Jordan with tanks while refusing Israeli requests for aircraft. I simply do not understand these a p p a r e n t contradictions in stated policies and subsequent actions on the part of our government. It seems to me that if Israel goes under while the S o v i e t Union gains a foothold in the Mediteraiiean, it is a threat to all Americans nnd not just the Jews who hold (he added enio-.. (innal attachment to the Jewish State. So, while I leave the political commentary to the professional news analysts, I look for answers from the political candidates before I cast my vote in November. I believe (he positions of (he presidential candidates with regard to (lie middle cast are as pertinent to all Americans as are (heir positions on (axes and Vietnam. If our government fails in its responsibility to the democracy of Israel in the key global area, it will indeed be very bad for the Jews—and equally disasterous for all the people in this country concerned with peace and freedom in the world. I pray that the positions expressed by the presidential candidates in the next few months will indicate this concern.

Cleveland JCC Reaffirms Policy of Open Membership Cleveland UTA)—The board of the Jewish Community Center IKIS reaffirmed a policy of open membership for all," regardless of race, religion or national origin." The action was taken at a board meeting after discussion stimulated by a national Jewish Community Center membership policy study, made by the National Jewish Welfare Board. Max Friedman, JCC president, said that the center had always welcomed non-Jews "both as participants and as members." He added that we believe that non-Jewish participation helps to promote intercultural understanding. At (he same time," lie said, "we are dedicated to the proposition that the presence of non-Jewish members does not divert our agency in any way in carrying out its distinctive Jewish programs."
