Men's Clubs Back 'Jewish Assembly'

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

LIBERTY, N.Y. — The Rab-
binical Assembly of America,
national association of conser-
vative rabbis in the United
States, called upon Congress
Tuesday to enact into law a
bill providing for hospital and
nursing home care for the aged
and disabled.
The bill, introduced by Rep.
Aime Forand, of Rhode Island,
provides for the financing of
such care by an increase in the
Sociay Security tax.
The synagogue Council of
America, the national represent-
ative body of the Conservative,
Orthodox and Reform move-
ments was urged to take the
lead in the creation of "a
unified democratically consti-
tuted national organization to
serve as spokesman of the total
American Jewish community in
the United States."
The Assembly offered t h e
services of its membership in
aiding the Council to carry out
such a program.
Rabbi Simon Greenberg, vice
chancellor of the Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, in an address to the
Assembly, asked the delegates
"to welcome every effort by the
Seminary to make the tradi-
tional S e m i c h a (ordination)
accessible to its students and
graduates." He said it was
"good for Jews" to have men
with the "competences repe-
sented by the traditional Sem-
icha," in addition to the reg-
ular Seminary training.
Conservative Judaism is
experiencing great difficulty
in recruiting leadership and
in training the scholars nec-
essary to maintain its position
in the religious life of Amer-
lean Jewry, it was empha-
sized at the opening session
of the five-day 60th anniver-
sary convention of the Rab-
binical Assembly.
Reporting to about 500 rabbis
who are attending the conven-
tion on a survey he has recently
completed on the manpower
situation in Conse• ative
Judaism, Dr. Eli Ginzberg, pro-
fessor of economics at Colum-
bia University, emphasized that
the same situation exists in all
major religious groups today.
The rabbi who permits him-
self to become entangled in
such a schedule does a disserv-
ice to his congregation ; accord-
irig to Dr. Ginzberg, since he
has no time for the quiet con-
templation which alone can
produce the insights and under-
standing necessary for spiritual
leadership. On the other • hand,
the speaker admitted that the
pressures put upon the rabbi
to• serve in all these capacities
were almost intolerable.

said Finletter, "has failed in
that it has not insisted on an
end to the state of war now
being insisted up on by the
Arab countries a gain st the
State of Israel."
He urged that the U.S.A and
its Western allies not only in-
sist at the United Nations for
and end to this "state of war,"
but also act at the UN "against
the interference with traffic in
the Suez Canal and against the
other menaces of the cold war
currently being carried on by
Egypt and by other neighbors
of Israel."
All national Jewish organ-
izations in the United States
were called upon Wednesday
to participate in a confer-
ence for the establishment
of an American Jewish As-
sembly as •a -permanent demo-
cratic representative body of
the American Jewish com-
munity. _
A resolution urging this ac-
tion was adopted by the Nation-
al Federation of Jewish Men's
Clubs. The convention also
voted to establish a commission
on social action to advise its
membership on matters of con-
cern and to recommend action
to further social welfare.

WASHINGTON—George Lin-
coln Rockwell, self styled "fueh-
rer" of the "American Nazi
Party," revealed Wednesday
that he will bring his "storm-
troopers" to New York City by
motor convoy for a mass anti-
Jewish rally on July 4.
The meeting will probably be
held in Union Square where
"free speech" facilities are
afforded.
Envisaging the New York
rally as a bold move to advance
neo-Nazism in America, Rock-
well indicated his group's . Dis-
trict of Columbia activities have
been executed in preparation
for the big event. He feels his
forces will be adequately train-
d and mass meeting techniques
perfected in time for the July
4 foray.
While there has been boast-
ing of "a motor convoy" to
transport adherents to New
York, his organized followers

Because American Savings in-
vests in loCal enterprise, money
in an American Savings account
plays a dual role. While it's
earning a high return, it's hard
at work helping local families
buy homes—creating jobs and
business for builders, crafts-
men and merchants. When you
open an American Savings ac-
count, you help yourself to
higher earnings—and help
your community prosper.

Recommend Waiving
of Dayan's Immunity

JERUSALEM — The house
committee of the Knesset de-
cided Wednesday to recommend
the lifting of the parliamentary
immunity of Moshe Dayan,
Minister of Agriculture, to per-
mit his trial on charges of care-
less driving.
Dayan, former Chief of Staff,
had indicated he was willing to
waive immunity. He was in-
volved in a traffic accident
more than a year ago when his
jeep hit another car at a high-
way intersection.
