Congregations in Detroit and
out-state again will follow the
tradition preceding the High
Holydoys by cooperating with
the Jewish National Fund land
program in Israel through the
purchase of High Holyday JNF
stamps by their members, it is
announced by Dr. Israel Wie-
ner, JNF president.
Synagogue ticket committees
are requested to utilize the spe-
cial JNF stamps sent to them
to decorae their holiday admis-
sion tickets. Each stamp is to
be issued as a receipt in ack-
nowledgement of a fitting con-
tribution to the cause of "Geu-
lath Ha'aretz," the JNF pro-
gram of land reclamation.
In their appeal to synagogues.
Phillip Stollman and Harry Co-
hen, co-chairmen of the reli-
gious groups committee, stated:
"In the last 15 years, the JNF
paved the way for the establish-
ment of more than 600 colonies,
including 400 located on Israel's
borders. It now has the impor-
tant task of securing these bor-
ders by increasing the number
of settlements. -Now that the
Jewish National Fund has be-
come the sole agency authoriz-
ed by the Knesset to develop,
reclaim, and afforest all the
land in Israel, we are confident
that the leaders of Jewish re-
ligious life appreciate the need
of continuing assistance in tasks
confronting the Keren Kaye-
meth L'Israel."
Stollman and Cohen have ask-
ed ticket committees to call UN
4-2767, or write the JNF office,
1414 Wyoming, if they have not
received their supply, or if they
require additional stamps.
The Jewish National Fund
again is issuing tree certifi-
cates as New Year greetings to
relatives and friends. The cer
tificate, which attests to the
planting of a tree "as a symbol
of ife for the New Year, 5724,"
will be available at $2 per tree,
by calling UN 4-2767, or by
writing to the Jewish National
Fund, 18414 Wyoming.
Friends of JNF and Israel,
according to Dr. Wiener, again
may avail themselves of this
method of wishing their friends
and relatives a H a p p y New
Year, thus assisting in the re-
clamation of Israel's desert
areas, and protecting land al-
ready reclaimed.

Israeli Justice
Stands by Remarks
on Jewish 'Racism'

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
To The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM—Supreme Court
Justice Haim Cohen was quoted
in the local press Tuesday as
standing firm on the remarks
he made at the American-Israel
Dialogue last June in which he
linked application of Jewish re-
ligious law in determining Jew-
ishness in Israel with the Nazi
racist Nuremberg Laws.
Cohen stood by his remarks
in commenting on a projected
action by the Agudat Israel to
start criminal suit against him
on charges of injuring the re-
ligious feelings of the public.
Cohen told newsmen that while
he regretted that "certain ex-
pressions" had created the "mis-
taken view" that he meant to
smear the Jewish religion, he
saw no reason to retract any of
his remarks.
He said that a judge, on divest-
ing himself of his judicial gown,
has the same rights of free
speech and thought as all other
An Agudat spokesman dis-
closed that attorneys were ex-
amining the changes of litigation
against the justice for his re-
marks, which caused widespread

Jerusalem Police Chief Warns
Ultra-Orthodox Against Rioting

ultra-Orthodox zealots continued
their demonstrations here
against alleged Sabbath desecra-
tions, Jerusalem Police Chief
Zvi Rudin summoned leaders of
the Neturei Karta and of the
Satmar Yeshiva to tell them the
police would have no alternative
but to use counter-force if the
rioting continued.
The leaders, conferring sepa-
rately with the police chief,
told him they condemned acts
of violence by their adherents
but insisted they could not
acquiesce in the Sabbath dese-
crations in their sections of
The police warning followed
several incidents last Saturday.
One group of youngsters from
the ultra-Orthodox Beit Israel
quarter beat up a cripple driv-

ing his car through their section
before sundown. Another group
stoned a bus carrying Christian
tourists who had crossed into
Jerusalem from Jordan via the
Mandelbaum Gate. In a third in-
stance, that could have had in-
ternational repercussions, zeal-
ots threw a stone at a United
Nations automobile carrying
U. N. Truce Supervision Organi-
zation personnel.
Ten youths arrested in earlier
rioting of this type are still
being held for trial. One man,
Avraham Lehrman, a 26-year-
old American, arrested with the
10 two weeks ago, had his case
speeded because he was sched-
uled to. depart for his home in
the United States. He was ar-
raigned on a charge of illegal
assembly and was fined 20
pounds ($6.33).

Failure of Orthodoxy with Young
Latins Cited by 'Progressive Jews

The World Union for Progres-
sive Judaism announced the
opening of a full-time office in
South America "to strengthen
and build Jewish religious life
on that continent."
The new plans were announc-
ed by Rabbi William A. Rosen-
thal, executive director of the
World Union, at their offices in
the House of Living Judaism,
838 Fifth Ave., New York.
Rabbi Rosenthal stated that
the new office would be located
in Buenos Aires at the Syna-
gogue of the Culto Israelita de
Belgrano. Rabbi Haim Asa, a
recent graduate of the Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Institute
of Religion in Cincinnati and a
native of Bulgaria, will be the
new director.

Cantor Mendel Klein
Chosen by Y-1 Center

Young Israel Center of Oak-
Woods announces that Cantor
Mendel Klein will officiate at
Holy Day ser-
A native of
Hungary, Can-
tor Klein ar-
rived in this
country in
1954 from Os-
lo, Norway,
where he had
been cantor at
Adas Moshe.
Since coming Cantor Klein
to the United States he served
as cantor in New London, Conn.,
Columbus and Cincinnati.

The World Union represents
Reform and Liberal Judaism in
twenty-one countries. The larg-
est constituency is the Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions, central congregational
body of 650 Reform temples in
the United States and Canada.
Rabbi Rosenthal, who return-
ed from a two - month survey
this winter of South American
Jewish communities, noted that
"although there are many in-
stances of dedicated religious
programs in Latin America, it
seemed obvious that religion
does not play a primary role in
Jewish life. Secular movements
dominate most community pro-
grams and the synagogue plays
a decidedly minor role in the
lives of the majority of Jews."
He cited as some reasons "the
apparent failure of Orthodoxy
to attract the younger genera-
tion who are deeply involved in
the social and economic chal-
lenges of their respective soci-
He praised the Latin devotion
to the various causes aiding the
State of Israel, but "regretted
that a strong religious expres-
sion did not exist side by side
with this sentiment as demon-
strated here in the United
Another example of the "re-
gressing" spiritual life in Latin
America, Rabbi Rosenthall said,
"is the lamentable lack of suf-
ficient rabbis and religious
teachers to guide the communi-
ties. Only a few dozen qualified
rabbis lead the religious destiny
of 800,000 Jews."
