NEW YORK. The World Con-
ference of Jewish Organizations,
representing leading Jewish or-
ganizations of five continents,
criticized the Soviet Union Wed-
nesday for not allowing . Jews
the "same rights and facilities
granted to other religious and
national groups."
It expressed the hope that
the "recent implied condemna-
tion of anti-Semitism by Pre-
mier Khrushchev" in his letter
to Lord Russell will "exercise
a restraining influence" on
those responsible for the clos-
ing of synagogues and other
prejudicial acts against the
Jews. The resolution was passed
unanimously.
The COJO representatives
also expressed concern over
"the anti-Semitism manifesta-
tions and activities which
have occurred in certain Latin
American countries." The res-
olution, also passed unan-
imously, said "these events
cause particular concern as
there is evidence that the
local anti-Semitic groups and
parties are stimulated and in-
spired by external forces
linked together through in-
ternational networks aimed
at the destruction of the very
foundations of the Democratic
way of life."
The conference called upon
governments, the United Na-
tions and • other international
institutions "to promote polit-
ical, legislative and other meas-
ures to counteract this danger
to democracy and fundamental
human rights."
The resolution on Soviet Jew-
ry voiced the "distress" of
COJO because the Jewish cit-
izens of the USSR are denied
the rights granted to other re-
ligious and national groups. It
went on: "
"We are particularly con-
cerned that facilities are de-
nied to Soviet Jewry to estab-
lish organizations both to un-
ite Jewish congregations for
common religious purposes
and to further develon Jew-
ish cultural activity. We are
equally concerned that facil-
ities granted to other groups
to maintain contact with and
participate in the activities of
international bodies are not
available to Soviet Jewry.
The reference to Premier
Khrushchev expressed the hope
that the letter to Russell "and
its publication in the Soviet
press" will exercise a restrain-
ing influence on "the manifesta-
tions of national prejudice and
religious and cultural intoler-
ance, and on the publicity cal-
culated to make it appear that
Jews are primarily responsible
for economic offenses."

WASHINGTON — The State
Department came under fire in
the senate Tuesday on charges
by Senator Thomas J. Dodd,
Connecticut Democrat, that the
Department had inadequately
responded to Soviet anti-Semi-
tism.
Reviewing increased evidence
of anti-Jewish tendencies in the
Soviet Unicin, - Dodd said the
facts clearly revealed "Prime
Minister Khrushchev, himself as
the chief condoner, if not the
chief instigator, of the persecu-
tion of the Soviet Jews."
Dodd referred to recent de-
velopments' in Russia in com-
menting on an exchange he had
with the State Department last
summer on the Soviet Jewish
question. In reply to the sen-
ator's recommendation for in-
creased United States diplo-
matic activity on behalf of So-
viet Jewry, Assistant Secretary
of State Frederick G. Dutton
wrote that it was "not possible

Dodd "found it difficult to
understand Mr. Dutton's uncer-
tainty because it seemed to me
at the time that there was over-
whelming evidence that the So-
viet Jews were, in fact, the vic-
tims of special persecutiOn."
The senator recalled that as
far back as 1954 a congression-
al select committee to investi-

cluded "that the official and
deliberate policy of Commu-
nism was aimed directly at
forced assimilation of the Jews
as the preferred technique for
