CHICAGO, (JTA) — Jewish
spiritual leaders who accuse the
Soviet Union of persecuting
Russian Jewry are playing a
"shocking" and "ugly" role,
knowing that their statements
about Jewry in the USSR "are
packed with lies," according to
an exclusive interview with So-
viet Foreign Minister Andrei A.
Gromyko, published here by
the Sentinel, Chicago Jewish
weekly.
However, an editorial reply
by J. I. Fishbein, editor -of the
Sentinel, reiterated the charges
against the Soviet Union, de-
tailing the accusations with fac-
tual evidence.
The interview with Gro-
myko, according to the news-
paper, was obtained recently
at the United Nations by
Mandel Terman, a Chicago
businessman who is chairman
of the Chicago Council of
American - Soviet Friendship.

Present, according to Ter
man, was also Mikhail Men-
shikov, former Soviet Am-
bassador to Washington, who
is now Foreign Minister of
the Soviet Russian Federated
Republic, largest component
of the USSR. Terman quoted
Gromyko as stating:
`I'm deeply shocked and sad-
dened that at this late date in
history — at a time when the
hot fire of the cold war has
turned to ashes—when the fu-
ture for mankind has not
looked as bright since the cold
war began 17 years ago—I see
your Jewish spiritual leaders
grasp the dead hand of Ade-
nauer and his revanchist and
Hitler's ex-generals and judges
in a bitter end struggle that can
only lead to the annihilation of
the Jewish people everywhere
together with the human race.
How shocking! What an ugly
role to play at this time! Why
do they do this when they know
their statements about Jewry
in the USSR are packed with
lies. In the Ten Commandments
it says, I believe, 'thou shall
not bear false witness against
thy neighbor.' How spiritual
can a man be who poisons the
minds of his worshipers with
lies?"
Menshikov, according to Ter-
man, asked why the Jewish
spiritual leaders do not quote
a statement on the Jewish ques-
tion, "given at great length"
by Russia's Prime Minister Ni-
kita Khrushchev last March.
The former Ambassador also
asked why the Jewish leaders
do not mention the naming of
a Jew, Venyamin Dymshits, as
vice-chairman of the USSR
Council of Ministers and chair-
man of the USSR's Economic
Council which, he said, "is one
of the three highest positions
in our country." (Both of these
developments had been re-
ported by the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency.)
Terman reported that he
had also asked the Soviet
diplomats why Khrushchev
does not reply to the state-
ments about anti-Jewish per-
secutions made by Jewish
leaders. The Chicagoan re-
ported that Menshikov cited
the Soviet Premier's replies
on that subject to Lord Betr-
rand Russel, instead of to
Jewish leaders, because "in
short, he doesn't trust people
noted for their hostility to
the Soviet Union, no matter
what their religion or faith."
Discussing the Gromyko-Men-
shikov statements, Fishbein de-
clared editorially:
"Despite the turmoil that has

Parley of European
Rabbis Discusses
Plight of Soviet Jews

PARIS, (JTA)—The deterior-
ation of the position of Soviet
Jewry and the activities of
Christian missionaries in Israel
were among the subjects dis-
cussed at a two-day conference
of the Standing Committee of
European Rabbis which con-
cluded here Monday.
The conference, which was
under the chairmanship of Brit-
ish Chief Rabbi Israel Brodie,
was attended by the chief rab-
bis of France, Ireland, the
Netherlands, Switzerland and
Italy.
The committee reviewed the
work of the last conference
held in Basle, Switzerland, ear-
lier this year and discussed the
implementation of a number of
resolutions. Grand Rabbi Jacob
Kaplan of France outlined ef-
forts - being made to provide
adequate religious education
facilities for Jews who arrived
in France from Algeria and
other parts of North Africa. It
was decided to hold the next
conference in London in the
spring of 1964.

raged about this controversy
during the past decade, the
Soviets either will not or can
not comprehend our concern.
They continue to fall back on
the hack - worn constitutional
guarantee against anti-Semi-
tism as if that in itself should
resolve the entire problem for
us. Against those Jews who dis-
agree—which includes 99 and
9/10 percent — they hurl the
charge of "war monger," "cold
war warrior," "anti-Sovieteer,"
etc. This is supposed to silence
worldwide public opinion that
has been protesting the steady
deterioration of Jewish life in
the Soviet Union ever since the
closing days of the Stalin terror.
