London Conference Appeals to Moscow Israel Parliament Defe
to Permit Jews in Soviet to Emigrate to Reduce Militar of the women ranked

LONDON, (JTA)—A resolu-
tion appealing to the Soviet gov-
ernment to remove the discrim-
ination against Jews in the
Soviet 'Union in the practice of
their religious . and their corn-
munal rights, and to permit
Jews to leave the country for
reunion of families, was adopted
by the 250 delegates attending
the biennial conference of the
British section of the World
Jewish Congress.
The resolution took note of
the recent "signs of improve-
ment" in regard to Jewish life
in the USSR; the recent issu-
ance of a Yiddish- periodical,
"Sovietische Heimland," and
publication of Yiddish • books,
expressing the hope that these
"trends will be extended
further."

LONDON — Moshe Sharett,
chairman of the Jewish Agency
Executive, declared here
Wednesday that "as long as de-
mocracy is not universal in the
world, Judaism is imperiled."
Sharett spoke before a packed
hall at a meeting sponsored by
the Bnai Brith lodge here dur-
ing a visit in which he held a
number of consultations on
Zionist matters before depart-
ing for the United States.
He will make a month-long
tour on behalf of the United
Jewish Appeal and the Zionist
Movement in the United States.
In his address, the Jewish
Agency chairman cited Soviet
Russia as a country "where
freedom is rationed by the state
and is not the inherent right of
every individual." Under. such
circumstances; he asserted,
"Judaism experiences as a pro-
gressive asphysiation."
He described Israel as "the
only impregnable bastion of
Jewish life and the mightiest
instrument for the perpetuation
of Jewishness, adding that Is-
rael was also "much more. It is
always there in case of need or
danger to any Jewish group or
community."
He insisted he was not "con-
juring up dark visions of im-
periled Jewish communities, but
you know as well as we all know
there are communities who are
in need of Israel even, today as
a means of salvation."

At the same time, the reso-
lution expressed "deep con-
cern" over recent attacks
against Jews printed in the
Soviet press and over the dis-
missal of leaders of the Jew-
ish community in various
cities in the Soviet Union.
The resolution then appealed
"to leaders and authorities in
the Soviet Union to remove
these disabilities, and to give
Russian Jews the opportunity to
join other Jews and their fam-
ilies in Israel, if they desire to
do so."
(In a statement prior to his
departure for Paris, Dr. Nahum
Goldmann said in Israel that
there were chances of changing
the Soviet attitude toward Rus-
sian Jewry. This, he said, sho
be sought through pers
orld-
and by the weight o

through the aid of reign ele-
ments who are fr' ds of Israel.

called for freedom for Alger-

ganizations, and to insure
their freedom to emigrate if
they so desire.
Another resolution urged the
British government to use its
influence with Interpol, the in-
ternational police organization,
to reverse its hands-off policy
with regard to the tracing and
apprehension of the Nazi war
criminals.
On numerous occasions, In-
terpol has declined to cooperate
in the apprehension of former
Nazi war criminals on the
grounds that it cannot deal with

New York Jews Uged
to Double UJA Gifts

NEW YORK, (JTA)—A reso-
lution calling on Jewish mass
organizations in the New York
area to "at least double" last
year's contributions to the
United Jewish Appeal, was
aopted by the more than 500
delegates attending the 23rd an-
nual meeting of the Council of
Organizations of the United
Jewish Appeal of Greater New
York.
The resolution called immigra-
tion to Israel "a blessing for the
young state," but emphasized that
"the new immigrants will become
productive citizens only if they
will be provided with permanent
homes and other facilities."
Judge J. Daniel Fink, chairman
of the Council, who presided, told
the delegates that $35,000,000
of UJA's national goal of $95,-
000;000 will be devoted to help-
ing the immigrants to Israel, the
United States and other coun-
tries. He urged the organiza-
tions to strengthen their volun-
teer corps and begin an all-out
effort to help the more than
600,000 persons in 27 countries
throughout the world who are de-
pendent on UJA agencies.
