TORONTO—A Toronto Jew-
ish community official reported
Tuesday on his return from
Havana that 1,000 observant
Cuban Jews faced loss of kosher
meat supplies because of the
illness of the lone ritual
slaughterer in Cuba and that
they had appealed to the Israeli
Chief Rabbinate for a shochet.
B. Kayfetz, executive director
of community relations for the
Canadian Jewish Congress and
Bnai Brith, said the present
shochet who is 75 and was ill
would not be able to continue
slaughtering for much longer.
He explained that the Cuban
government has rationed meat
supplies to three-fourths of a
pound per person per week and
that such rations cannot. be ac-
cumulated. If the kosher meat
and poultry is not available, the
ration is lost for that week.
He reported that there was
complete religious freedom for
the remaining 2,000 to 2,500
Jews in Cuba and that there
had been no objections from the
government concerning t h e
- cabled appeal to the Israel Chief
Rabbinate. He added that the
1,000 Cuban Jews were regis-
tered with Havana's three

were continuing to function as
they had before some 8,000

Students at University
of Amsterdam Rapped
for "Dachau Game"

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

AMSTERDAM — Students at
the University of Amsterdam
were publicly chastised in par-
liament and by the University's
administration Tuesday and
were forbidden ever to engage
again in the so-called "Dachau
game."
The "game" aroused many
protests when one of the oldest
campus societies "Nos Lungit
Amicipia" (Friendship Binds
Us) initiated a group of fresh-
men last week by herding semi-
naked students into an almost
airless cellar where many of
the initiates fainted. Thus the
society contended the students
would learn about life at the
infamous Dachau concentration
camp conducted by the Nazi
regime.
Many of the students protest-
ed that members of their fam-
ilies had been murdered by the
Nazis at Dachau.
Both the Minister of Justice
and the Minister of Education
told parliament .they would halt
the "disgusting" game. The of-
fendihg society announced it
would suspend activities for a
week of "contemplation."
By orders of the Chancellor
of the University, all students
were told to attend the show-
ing of a film showing "the real
horrors at Dachau."
