much freedom
as we have in America. This
precious possession of freedom
has given us a unique oppor-
tunity: we choose to be Jews.
No dictator, no anti-Jewish
laws, not even surface anti-
Semitism force us to accept
our Jewish identity.
"But in choosing to be
Jews," he continued, "we
must reject the idea of isola-
tion, self-containment and
ghettoization. R a the r, we
must translate the heritage
of our people into the real-
ity of our own day. We must,
for example, join the strug-
gle for equality which our
Negro fellow-citizens are wag-
ing, just as we must deepen
our relationship with our fel-
low-Jews in Israel and around
the world through a knowl-
edge of the Jewish past and
an understanding of the Jew-
ish present."
The - capture of Nazi mass-
murderer Adolf E i c h m a n n
comes at a time when anti-
Semitisrn and Hitlerism "have
apparently been rescued from
the underworld and are • once
again credible possibilities," the
convention was told by Dr.
Israel Goldstein, vice-president
of the World Jewish Congress,
who warned the delegates that
the world is entering a "new
phase in which the moral shock
of the Hitler period seems to
be wearing off and a consider-
able receptivity to anti-Semi-
tism exists — even in those
societies we had thought were
immune to its spread."
Rabbi Max Nussbaum of Hol-
lywood, Calif., an AJ Congress
national vice-president, urged
that a distinction be made be-
tween the German government,
which he said was "sincerely
committed to the eradication of
anti-Semitism," and large num-

2. Political candidates should be

religious belief or church affiliation
but on their positions regarding
major issues, "including the separa-

The convention expressed
"concern" at what it termed
the "continuing deficiencies in
German public life," including
the role of ex-Nazis in positions
of influence and the "essential
failure" of the German edu-
cational system to promote an
understanding among German
youth of the brutality of the

Nazi regime.
Shad Polier was re-elected a

named again to head the Com-

has headed since its establish-
ment in 1945.
At the final session, the con-
