Jews in. Sports

Dolph Schayes, who recently
played his 1,000th game in the
National Basketball Association,
also scored his 19,000th point,
in a game against the N. Y.
Knicks. He is, at the moment,
the all-time NBA scoring
champ.
Barry Kramer, NYU's great
basketball star, is, at the time
this column is being composed,
the second highest scorer in the
nation (college version), in the
percentages, making an aver-
age of 29.1 points a game. He's
behind Nick Werkman of Seton
Hall, whose count is 31.5. NYU
coach Lou Rossini is going to
use Kramer as much as possible
the rest of the season to give
him every chance to become
number one.
Gary Gubner, in the AAU's
75th national indoor track and
field championships, won the
shotput from Dave Davis of the
U.S. Marines. Gary put the shot

62 feet and 8 1/4 inches, to Davis'
57-7 3/4. Big margin. But Gary
will do better as he grows
older, bigger and stronger.

BRUMEL AGAIN

In the AAU meet, Valerie
Brumel faced John Thomas in
the high jump competition for
the third time this season.
Brumel won the first time and
then Thomas finally won from
him.

SANDY KOUFAX

Will Sandy K o u f a x's bum
finger stop him from attaining
the pitching heights? Sandy
says he's as healthy as he's ever
been. And the national sports
magazines and newspaPers are
full of tales about the hand-
some southpaw.

In 1953 Sinai Hospital, on
Outer Dr., a Jewish Welfare
Federation member agency, a
long cherished dream of the
Jewish community, opened. The
first patient was admitted on
Jan. 15, 1953.

Israel Opera Conductor Stands Trial as Collaborator with Nazis

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV.—Hirsh Birenblat,
former conductor of the Israel
Opera, went on trial here Tues-
day on charges of having helped
to round up Jews for extermin-
ation by the Nazis as a Jewish
policeman in Nazi-held Poland
during World War II.
In presenting the case, Prose-
cutor David Libai said the case
was the first in which an Israeli
court had been called on to de-
termine whether service by a
Jew as a policeman under the
Nazis made him a member of a
"hostile organization" under the
Israeli law for the punishment
of Nazis and their collaborators.
This is the law under which
Adolf Eichmann was tried, con-
victed and hanged.
Birenblat was a member of
the Jewish police in Bendin,
a force established by the
Nazi - appointed Judenrat for
that ghetto. The charge sheet
against him listed accusations
that he handed over Jews to
the Nazis, attacked Jews in
enclosed camps, assembled
Jews for "selection" for ex-
termination, helped the Nazis
herd 5,000 Jews of Bendin
into death trains and round-

fied that he had been sent to
Bendin to organize an under-
ground there but was captured
and brought before Birenblat.
Neuman testified that despite
appeals to Birenblat, he was
kept for several days in a cell
in Birenblat's office. When he
and a group of other Jews were
taken to German trucks by Jew-
ish police under Gestapo super-
vision, he testified further, his

NEW YORK, (JTA) — A re-
solution calling upon Congress
to pass a pending bill which
would abolish the national ori-
gins quota system for admitting
immigrants to this country, and
- substitute instead another alloca-
tions system which "reflects
American democratic concepts
concerning the dignity and
worth of the individual, was
adopted here at the 79th annual
meeting of United Hias Service.
The resolution was passed un-
animously by more than 1,000
representatives of fraternal, com-
munity, religious and labor or-
ganizations who attended the
meeting.
A highlight of the meeting
was the reading of special mes-
sages lauding HIAS work from
President Kennedy, Gov. Rocke-
feller and New York Mayor Rob-
ert F. Wagner. Rep. Emanuel
Celler and Sen. Jacob Javits.

a local orphanage and bring-

transported them to death
camps.
He was also accused of di-
vulging the hiding places of 100
Jews who fled to Bendin from
other areas and with handing
them over to the Nazis and with
taking hostages from families
whose members did not report
to the Nazis for forced labor.
After the charges were listed,
the prosecutor said that despite
the charges, it was Birenblat
who removed one or two Jews
from every transport and thus
saved their lives. He added:
"It is for this court to
decide whether, in order to
save his own life and the lives
of a few others, the accused
had the right to perform his
other deeds despite com-
pelling conditions." The
prosecutor added that the un-
derground made an effort to
save Birenblat.
After the defendant pleaded
not guilty, the first witness,
Isaac Neuman, now in Israeli,
was called. Neuman was a
member of the Jewish under-
ground in Czenstochowa who
was sent to Bendin. He testi-

B. Keating, New York Repub-
lican, who is one of 35 Senators
co-sponsoring the bill in the
Upper House, was one of the
principal speakers at the session
and urged that the immigration
and nationality law of the United
States be liberalized.
The pending legislation would
authorize, among other things,
the annual issuance of 250,000
visas, instead of the present 156,-
000. It would allow the admis-
sion of 50;000 refugees or es-
capees regardless of quota re-
strictions; allocate 120,000 visas
among countries on the basis of
a proportion of immigration to
the United States during the last
15 years, and 80,000 to be divid-
ed among countries in propor-
tion to the size of their popula-
tion, it would set a ceiling of
3,000 per country and would also
include provisions for use of
unused numbers each year.
Murray I. Gurfein, president of
United Hias Service, reported
that, in 1962, "51,900 Jewish
men, women and children were
assisted by the agency with vital
migration and related services.
Of this number, 9,300 migrants
and refugees were assisted to
resettle primarily in the United
- States, Canada, Australia and
Brazil."
James P. Rice, HIAS executive
director, told the session that,
of the more than 3,000,000 Jew-
ish persons aided by the agency
and its predecessors during the
past 79. years, • "close to 500,000
victims of the Nazis and other
oppressive groups have been re-
scued and resettled since Hitler
came to power."
Rice. reported that two-thirds
of the 3,500 Jewish refugees
from Cuba whom the agency as-
sisted have been _resettled in 79
communities in 27 states, the
District of Columbia and Puerto
Rico.

groclamation

To all our Jewish Brethren!
American and world Jewry have recently sustained a
devastating blow in the passing of the world renowned
scholar and sage, REB AHRON KOTLER, of sainted
memory. The magnitude of the loss is clearly reflected in
the grief of the tens of thousands who flocked to him
during his lifetime for inspiration, guidance and counsel
and in the anguish and helplessness of the many organiza-
tions and institutions that have been orphaned of their
leader.
The passing of this outstanding Gaon and Torah
authority is surely an irretrievable loss for all Jewry. Yet,
none have been more severely struck by his death than
his life's crowning achievement, the BETH MEDRASH
GOVOHA of Lakewood, New Jersey, which he founded,
nurtured and sustained for more than two decades. To
this great citadel of Torah scholarship, he devoted his
untiring labors and as a result of his selfless efforts it
has emerged as an outstanding Torah center, from which
have emanated hundreds of Torah scholars who now serve
throughout the world.
WHEREAS, we recognize that his tragic passing has
placed in jeopardy the future of this distinguished Institute
for Advanced Learning, the BETH MEDRASH GOVOHA;
THEREFORE, we, the undersigned Rabbinical groups,
have proclaimed a $1,000,000 CAMPAIGN on behalf of the
RABBI AARON KOTLER MEMORIAL FUND to insure
the continuance and growth of his most cherished under-
taking, the furtherance of great Torah scholarship through
the BETH MEDRASH GOVOHA.
WE CALL on every synagogue to arrange an early
appeal for Beth Medrash Govoha;;
AND WE URGE each and every Jewish family to make
an immediate KOFER NEFESH contribution to the RABBI

AARON KOTLER MEMORIAL FUND,

We are certain that the great Z'chus of this Sainted
Gaon and Tzadik will surely redound to all who will
respond generously to our appeal and all the blessings of
the Torah will accrue to all who will help us realize our
goal — to preserve and strengthen the mos t eloquent testa-
ment of Rabbi Aaron Kotler's glorious heritage, the BETH
MEDRASH GOVOHA, in Lakewood, New Jersey.
