Senate Opens With Rosh Hashanah Prayer; Arab Delegates to UN Instructed
to Reject Israel Bid for Peace Talks
Israelis Mindful of Plight of Soviet Jews

WASHINGTON, (JTA) — A
Rosh Hashanah prayer, offered
by Sen. Kenneth B. Keating,
New York Republican, marked
the opening of the meeting of
the Senate on Rosh Hashanah.
Senate Democratic leader
Mike Mansfield of Montana ex-
pressed appreciation for the
prayer offered by Keating. "It
was most moving and touching
and I think it was in the best
possible taste," Mansfield aid.
He expressed belief that the
Senate was indebted to Keat-
ing for the prayer voiced in
the Senate Chamber. The House
of Representatives conducted
no business because of the Jew-
ish New Year.

NEW YORK, (JTA) — An
Orthodox rabbi made the first
telephone call of his life on
Rosh Hashanah and 6,000 Jews
were able to hold their annual
"tashlich" observance by a little
lake in the Brooklyn Botanic
Gardens.
When the Jews reached the
gardens, it was found that the
iron gate leading to the lake
was padlocked and the parti-
cipants would have to pass
through the turnstiles to get to
the site. This, Rabbi Samuel
Schrage asserted, was not per-
mitted on the Holy Days. He
also said that Dr. George S.
Avery, garden director, insisted
the Jews would have to go
through the turnstiles.
So Rabbi Schrage called City
Hall and Assistant Chief Inspec-
tor Patrick Whalen ordered a
police emergency squad to take
action. The squad members took
the hinges off the big iron gate
and the 6,000 Jews walked in,
led by Rebbe Mena chem
Schneerson, leader of the Lu-
bavitcher chassidic movement.

LONDON, (JTA)—More than
1,500 Jews attended the Rosh
Hashanah services in the Mos-
cow central synagogue which
were conducted by Chief Rabbi
Yehuda Leib Levin, according
to reports from the Soviet capi-
tal. The majority were elderly
people. Private gatherings of
"Minyanim" for High Holy Day
praying were banned this year
for the first time in Soviet
history.

PARIS, (JTA) — Special Rosh
Hashanah services for many
thousands of Jewish refugees
from North Africa were held
throughout France. In a number
of instances, High Holy Day
services were conducted in a
number of French towns where
no organized Jewish community
has existed for some years, until
the recent influx of North Afri-
can Jewish refugees.
In Paris, the Cirque d'Hiver
was the location for special serv-
ices for Jews from 0 r a n,
Algeria. The newly opened Paris

tribution to the welfare of the
Brazilian Fatherland through
their labors in trade, industry,
science and artistic endeavors."

Harriman Informs Dr. Hertz of State

Under Secretary of State W.

Averell Harriman thlis week
gave assurances to Dr. Richard
C. Hertz, rabbi of Temple Beth
El. that the State Department
will continue to work on the
problem of Soviet persecutions
of Jews and will constantly
explore the issues involved.
Harriman wrote to Rabbi
Hertz:

Iraq President
Says He Aims to
Annihilate Israel

CASABLANCA, (JTA)—Iraqi
President Aref said that any
payment of compensation to
Jews whose property was con-
fiscated when -they left Iraq,
Syria or Egypt, were "out of the
question" if they subsequently
settled in Israel.
In an interview in the Tu-
nisian newspaper, Jeune Afri-
que, Marshal Aref also said he
sees no possibility for an Arab-
Jewish state within a federation
of Arab countries.
"Our only aim is to annihilate
Israel," he declared, adding that,
as long as Jews considered
themselves a nation, "there is
no other solution to the Pales-
tine issue except war."

Shazar addressed his message
to all citizens of Israel "without
distinction as to national origin
or faith," and to all Jews all
over the world "without distinc-
tion as to the country or regime

Shazar expressed the further
hope that the test ban pact

this part of the world also," he
stated, "enjoy the blessing of

shaken by hostility and hatred."
He expressed the hope that "the
hatred of neighboring peoples,
and their threats of strife and

about the long term anti-
religious campaign in the
Soviet Union. This campaign,
which has been directed at
all religious groups, has
grown in intensity in recent
years and has prevented nor-
mal maintenance and devel-
opment of Jewish religious
and cultural life. It has been
very difficult to do anything
effective for people of the
Jewish faith in the Soviet
Union. Our Ambassador in
Moscow has, however, talked
to Soviet officials on a num-
ber of occasions concerning
this subject, and I mentioned
part of the problem when I
saw Khrushchev. I am con-
sidering what further action
might be appropriate.
"The problem of divided

particular group, and we are
constantly working on this
problem in all the Soviet
bloc countries."

Worshippers
to Recite Prayer
for Soviet Jews

JERUSALEM, (JTA)—A spe-
cial prayer for the fate of Soviet

Jewry, to be recited during the
opening of the ark on Yom Kip-
pur, has been distributed by the
Chief Rabbinate to 15,000 syna-
gogues in Israel and throughout
the world.
The prayer, which was com-
posed by Chief Rabbi Yitzhak
Nissim, calls for Divine inter-
cession to end the oppression of
Russian Jewry.
Noting that Russian Jewry
had been separated from the
mainstream of the Jewish peo-
ple, and "that they have been
deprived of their freedom and
their synagogues and houses of
learning have been shut down,"
the prayer asks for Divine inter-
vention to "deliver them from
their servitude and grant them
freedom" to observe the Torah
without interference and to emi-
grate to the Holy Land.
