South African Jews
Reaffirm Loyalty to
JOHANNESBURG ( JTA ) —
The South African Jewish Board
of Deputies issued a statement
here reaffirming the loyalty and
patriotism of the Jewish com-
munity in this country and dis-
claiming responsibility for re-
cent acts by individual Jews
charged with subversive activi-
ties in opposition to the govern-
ment's apartheid policy.
The board's statement was in
response to questions raised by
Dagbreek, the country's largest
Afrikaans newspaper, over the
recent arrest of Arthur Gold-
reich, a piominent artist and
architect, and Harold Wolpe, an
attorney, who were detained by
police along with a number of
other whites and non-w hit es
charged with heading an anti-
apartheid subversive group.
"The facts demonstrate over-
whelmingly," the board declared,
"that the Jewish community of
South Africa is an established,
loyal and patriotic section of
the population. The actions of
individuals of any section are
their own responsibility and no
section of the community can
or should be asked to accept
responsibility. If individuals
transgress the law, they expose
themselves to the penalty of the
law. The Jewish community con-
demns the breaking of the law,
in whatever section of the popu-
lation it might occur."
