Founder's Plaque Given to Krim
by Israel Chamber of Commerce

Arthur B. Krim, president of United Artists Corporation,
was the recipient of a Founder's Plaque of the American-Israel
Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Krim was cited by the
American-Israel Trade Group for his efforts and enthusiastic
support in promoting the economic relations between the two
countries. The presentation was made in New York City by
Nathan Straus III, president of the Chamber, and marked the
election of Krim as a founding member of the American-Israel
Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The interest of the
American Motion Picture Industry in ties with Israel and the
role of United Artists Corporation were evidenced by the
announcement by Arthur Krim of plans to produce in
Israel several major movie pictures, including "Exodus" and
"The Glorious Brothers."

Dr. Patai Proposes Reformation
of Our Educational Philosophy in
Light of Examples Set by the Bible

Dr. Raphael Patai, director
of research at the Theodor
Herzl Institute in New York,
has drawn upon patterns of
life still in evidence in the
Middle East, as well as upon
Biblical sources, for his deep
study, "Sex and Family in the
Bible," which has been pub-
lished by Doubleday.
The eminent author, who has
taught at a number of univer-
sities, has drawn upon all avail-
able sources in his work of
research for this most reveal-
_ ing book. Every aspect of fam-
ily life, depicted in the Bible,
is reviewed and examined and
the results of the study form
the completest compilation of

Romanian, Authorities
Free Rabbi Portogal

TEL AVIV, (PTA) — Word
was received here from Bucha-
rest that the Romanian author-
ities had released Rabbi Zisu
Jacob Portogal, famed Roman-
ian Jewish spiritual leader, and
his son.
They had been held for sev-
eral months pending investiga-
tion of charges that followed
the aged rabbi's refusal to give
up his attempts to locate and
care for Romanian Jewish or-
phans. Rabbi Portogal is known
as the "Skulener Rebbe."
No word was received as to
the fate of others arrested at
the same time, some of them
because they assisted Rabbi
Portogal. Rabbi Portogal had
defied police orders to remain
at home and cease traveling
around the country in his res-
cue efforts.
(The Romanian legation in
Washington confirmed that
Rabbi Portogal had been re-
leased. The Romanian author-
ities are being asked to give
Ribba Portogal an exit visa
permitting him to leave Ro-
mania and come to the United
States to become spiritual
leader of Cong. K'hal Adas
Yereim in Brooklyn.
(An American entry visa will
be ready for Rabbi Portogal,
it was learned, as soon as he
has the necessary permission to
leave Romania.)

facts on sex in the Bible pub-
lished until now.
Dr. Patai views the Bible
"against its contemporary back-
ground." He examines the
manifold problems related to
sex and the family—marriages
between relatives, romantic
love, adultery, the Levirate,
divorce, harlotry, homosexual-
ity and scores of other prob-
lems related to the subject of
the book.
He points out in the course
of his study that "folk life in
the 19th and 20th century
Middle East is essentially com-
parable to the life of the an-
cient Hebrew as reflected in
the Bible."
Posing the question of the
relevance of the book's discus-
sion to modern times, Dr. Patai
suggests that "the Biblical fam-
ily pattern is superior to the
modern one," and he proposes
that some of the features of
the Biblical f a m i l y pattern
might be reintroduced into our
lives and he asks "whether a
reformulation of our e n t i r e
educational philosophy in the
light of the Biblical example
would not be feasible."

20 Parties May Be on Israel's Election Roster in November

Direct JTA Teletype Wire
To The Jewish News

TEL AVIV,—At least 20
political factions would present
separate lists of candidates for
the November elections to the
Knesset, Supreme Court Justice
Y. Sussman, chairman of the
central election committee, pre-
dicted Tuesday.
There are 14 parties in the
present Knesset.
The election committee has
already distributed applications
requested by 40 parties and at
least half of these are expected
to produce the required 750
signatures before the deadline
for filing lists in two weeks.
Some friction has arisen
among the factions of the na-
tional religious front which

combines the Mizrachi and the
Hapoel Hamizrachi parties. The
latter faction has demanded
that their man be placed in the
top position on the list, other-
wise they threaten to enter a
separate poster.
The Progressives will start
their list nominations after the
return from Europe at the end
of the week, of the party head,
Minister of Justice Pinhas
Rosen. He attended the World

present their own list. They
had previously said they would
name to head the list David
Benharoush, the self proclaimed
leader now facing trail in

Haifa for inciting the recent
Wadi Salib riots, if this would
enable his release from jail.

Observe 30th Anniversary
of Arab Hebron Massacre

30th anniversary of the an-
nihilation of . the Jewish com-
munity in Hebron, one of the
most ancient cities in the Holy
Land, which was' destroyed
during an Arab pogrom in
1929, was solemnly observed
at ritual ceremonies atop Mt.
Hundreds of residents of
Hebron, including survivors of
the 1929 massacre, attended
special services at which bibli-
cal passages referring to an-
cient Hebron were recited by
rabbis and other religious eld-
ers. The services were con-
cluded with many participants
ascending to the roof of the
synagogue on Mt. Zion, and
facing the inaccessible Cave
of Machpelah where, according
to the Bible, the Hebrew
Patriarchs• — Abraham, Isaac
and Jacob — were buried.
