Israel Exports Up During First Part 1961

R.,efoirniLPiedersConeeneinWasheng ton;
riresident Kennedy Is Presented Torah

WASHINGTON, (JTA)—Pres-
identKennedy was presented
with a Torah by a delegation of
250 Reform Jewish leaders rep-
resenting the convention of the
Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations.
The Torah originally belonged
to the_late Rabbi Isaac M. Wise,
founder of Reform Judaism in
the United States, and was en-
trusted to the Reform temple in
Cincinnati _bearing his name.
The presentation ceremony
took place at the Rose Garden
of the White House. It was ar-
ranged by Secretary of Labor
Arthur J. Goldberg, who was
elected to the UAHC board of
trustees. The presentation was
made by Rabbi Maurice N.
Eisendrath, UAHC president.
President Kennedy, in accepting
the Torah, said that the cere-
mony "symbolizes the happy re-
lations which exist between our
religious groups, and must con-
tinue to exist in this country if
we are worthy of our heritage."
In making the presentation,
Rabbi Eisendrath declared: "This
parchment contains • not only
sacred words but words for which
men had sacrificed their lives.
This nation was established on
these words and the immutable
universal truths which they ex-
press. These truths" remain our
most potent weapon in today's
great struggle between thosk who
have staked their lives andltheir
future on the value of the hu-
man spirit breathing free in a
universe guided by divine laws
and those who seek to bring the
creative human personality un-
der the awesome weight of a
juggernaut tyranny. You, Mr.
President, are the inspired and
inspiring leader of those com-
mitted- to the moral mandate set
forth in the words of this sacred
parchment." -
President Kennedy in re-
plying, declared: "The - sig-
nificance of this ceremony is
not merely a gift of an ancient
document but that in a very
real sense the great issue to-
day is, as Rabbi Eisendrath
stated, the supremacy of the
moral law which is initiated,
originated and developed in
the Bible and which has spe-
cial application here today.
"I have never felt that we
should attempt to use the great
impulse towards God and to-
wards religion, which all people
feel, as an element in a cold war
struggle. Rather, it is not an
arm, it is the essence of leader-
ship — not the organization of
economy so much but as
supremacy of moral law

therefore the right of t
tected
vidual, his rights to be

by the State and not be at the
mercy of the State.
"In the inaugural address
which the rabbi mentioned, - I
said that the basic issue was that
the rights the citizen enjoyed
did not come from the State, but
rather came from the Hand of
God. And it is written here. And
it is written in the Old and in
the New Testament.
"So I am grateful to you
and I want you to - know that,
in coming here today, I think
it symbolizes the happy rela-
tions which exist between our
religious groups and must
continue to exist in this coun-
try if we are to be worthy of
our heritage. So, Rabbi, I am
grateful to you. There is n
gift which could please
-more, and I am delighte
welcome you."
An appeal for approval
resolution supporting Press
Kennedy, "who is valiantly
tling to uphold the principle an
practice of separation between
Church and State," was voiced
by Rabbi Eisendrath in his key:
note address to the 46th biennial
convention of the UAHC. More
than 3,500 delegates and visitors
from 630 Reform temples attend-
ed the assembly.
Pointing out that all but a
small handful of Jewish groups
have opposed Federal aid to
parochial schools, Rabbi Eisen-
drath deplored the fact th
"even an insignificant mino
in the American Jewish - m-
eet
munity, tempted by the pr
faro-
of financial relief for th
ished educational budg , join
those who greedily cla or for
Federal aid to Christian aroch-
ial or Jewish day schools.
He called on the assem
to meet "this threat to the
very fundamentals of our • na-
tion" by supporting President
Kennedy's opposition to the
granting of Federal funds for
such purposes.
The theme of this year's con-
vention in the nation's capital
was "Judaism and Democracy—
Our Common Mission." Repre-
sentatives from Reform temples
in the United States, Canada,
Panama and the Dutch West
Indies discussed this topic in a
series of debates, workshops and
study sessions.
The delegates heard also that

tween this convention and th
next one in 1963 is expect

Mrs. Meir said that the issue
should be submitted to the
Knesset Committee for security
and foreign affairs to find
means of preventing the report-
ed desecration plans.
She said the Israel govern-
ment did not have full details
about the two Jordanian proj-
ects, but in view of the viola-
tion of the agreement on access-
ability, the government was
gravely concerned and would
make every effort to obtain
more information on the Matter.
The issue was passed on to com-
mittee without objection.

the two countries in the respec-
tive periods totaled $84,524,000
in the six months of this year.
United States exports to Israel
totaled $67,888,000 in that per-
iod and Israeli exports to the
United States reached $16,636,-
000, compared with $12,615,000
in the first half of 1960. The
increase in United States exports
stemmed from the delivery of
two Boeing 707 jet airliners
costing more than $8,000,000.
The $4,000,000 rise in Israeli
exports was due mainly to an
increase of $3,682,000 in export

of polished diamonds.

She made the statement in
reply to four motions for de-

planned to build a park on
Mount Olives, thus desecrating
the ancient Jewish cemetery
there, and to set up a mortuary
on Rachel's Tomb, one of the
most sacred of Jewish holy
places.
Rabbi Mordecai Nurock, of
the National Religious Party,
proposed a debate on the inac-
cessability by Jews to the
shrines. Esther Raziel-Naor, of

and Yisrael Katz of Agudas Is-

sembled, organized and admitted
59 congregations since its last
convention in November, 1951
(including the first and only
synagogue in Anchorage, Alas-
ka).
He estimated that the Re-
form branch of Judaism will
have another 75 congregations
by 1963, or over 700 as com-
pared with the present all-
time high of 630. "This should
be made possible," he said, "by
