Plan at Conservative Sessions
Dr. ImManu al Jakobovits, banquet, David J. Cohen, presi-
ing their various congregations

Addressing a statewide gath-
ering of 100 Conservative syna-
gogue leaders at Shaarey Zedek,
Sunday, Simon Greenberg, vice-
chancellor of the Jewish. Theo-
logical Seminary, declared that
"Judaism has lived in spite of
persecution, not because of it"
and that to think otherwise "is
an insult to Torah."
In a tribute of Shaarey Ze-
dek's new edifice, the Seminary
scholar said it was a "monu-
mental structure which symbo-
lizes that Judaism can flourish
under liberty."
Speaking on "The Local Syna-
gogue and the World Jewish
Scene," Greenberg reminded
the luncheon assemblage that a
community grows in proportion

Criticize Actions
of 2 Israeli Officials
in Dealing with Soblen

cabinet approved a report of the
Ministerial Committee which
blamed two senior government
officials for "inconsiderate ac-
tion on their own responsibili-
ties" in connection with the de-
portation of the late Robert
Soblen, the convicted American
spy who committed suicide in
London after his deportation
from Israel.
The officials, who were not
named but were identified as
officials of the Foreign Min-
istry and Prime Minister's Of-
fice respectively, were said to
have acted in good faith to serve
their ministers who were not
consulted on the expulsion. The
ministers 'concerned, however,
were requested to warn the offi-
cials that overzealousness in the
future without prior consulta-
tion will result in their bearing
responsibility for their actions.
The report found that
Soblen's detention was lawful
since he arrived under a broth-
er's forged passport, that he had
two weekdays and a Saturday
in which his lawyer — whom he
was able to choose immediately
on arrest — was able to seek a
writ of habeas corpus to stay
the expulsion.
The police notfied Soblen
that he was to be deported only
at 10 o'clock Saturday evening
because of the Sabbath and also
to lessen the tension beween the
notification of his expulsion and
the time of departure in view
of his poor health, the report
stated. On hearing the order,
Soblen broke into hysterics,
banged his head against the
wall, and since jail regulations
do not permit outside contact
between 6 p.m. and 8 a.m., he
was unable to contact his lawyer
before his deportation early on
Sunday morning, the report
The report categorically de-
nied that force was used to get
Soblen onto the plane or that
extradition negotiations took
place with United States au-
thorities. The report stressed
that when American Ambassa-
dor Walworth Barbour asked
Pr e m i e r Ben-Gurion about
Soblen, he was told this was
purely an internal matter. The
report strongly denied that Is-
rael asked for an American to
accompany Soblen, U.S. Marshal
McShane or anyone else.
Neither at the air p o r t nor
throughout the plane journey to
Athens nor during the stop-
over, nor on board the second
plane did McShane approach
Soblen or sit alongside him, the
report emphasized.

to what its concept of commu-
nity is. He said that Conserva-
tive Judaism ranks among the
largest single movements in
America and that. the Jewish
Theological Seminary, which is
its fountainhead, has an all-
embracing program that has
made significant and lasting con-
tributions to American civiliza-
tion and culture.
Citing as examples the work
of the Conference on Science,
Philosophy and Religion, the
"Eternal Light" radio and tele-
vision series, and the Institute
for Religious and Social Studies,
Greenberg cautioned that "these
are not gadgets for fund-raising,
but instruments to prevent Ju-
daism from becoming a dried-up
fossil in American Civilization."
He also pointed out that the
Conservative movement, through
its Schocken Institute, Jerusa-
lem Student Center and other
Israeli activities, is "an all-Zion-
ist movement."
Dr. Greenberg concluded his
address by stressing the ethical
implication of the National En-
rollment Plan, which consti-
tuted the principle theme of the
conference. "The importance of
this plan is that you are part of
a great national and interna-
tional movement," he declared.
Jacob Stein, of Great Neck,
Long Island, appeared on the
conference program with Dr.
Greenberg and presented
plaques to presidents of the six
congregations in Michigan which
have adopted the National En-
rollment Plan. In addition to
Detroit, leaders from Ann Ar-
bor, Bay City, Benton Harbor,
Flint, Grand Rapids, Livonia,
Pontiac and Saginaw were rep-
