Goldmann Urges Jews Continue to Voice
Concern for Bretheren Under Soviet Fist

French Socialists
Discuss Soviet
Jewry in Moscow

PARIS (JTA) — A 15-man
delegation of French Socialists,
led by Guy Mollet, f o r m e r
Prime Minister of France, is in
Moscow now discussing the sit-
uation of Soviet Jews with
senior USSR authorities, and is
expected to take up that issue
with Prime Minister Nikita S.
Khrushchev next Saturday.
Mollet, it was reported here,
studied the situation of Russian
Jewry carefully prior to depart-
ing for Moscow, going over
many documented reports on
the issue, especially one pre-
sented last month to the partici-
pants of the 1960 Paris Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry by Dr.
Nahum Goldmann, president of
the World Jewish Congress.
It is believed here that Mol-
let's delegation is the most
likely — compared with other
previous delegations—of achiev-
ing some concrete results • re-
garding the status of Soviet
Jewry. The reason given is that
both the Kremlin and the
French Communist Party are
anxious to achieve unification
of leftist forces in France as
a united Socialist opposition to
President Charles deGaulle.
Among the members of the
delegation led by Mollet are
Christian Pi n n eau, who was
Foreign Minister here in 1956-57,
during Israel's Sinai campaign;
Gaston Deferre, a close friend
of Israel, who has been men-
tioned increasingly of late as
the Opposition's candidate in
this country's next Presidential
elections; and Albert Gazier, a
former cabinet member, who
has visited Israel and takes
keen interest in Israel and in
Jewish affairs generally.

executive plenary session, will
leave Nov. 6 for Bonn to meet
with Ludwig Erhard, West Ger-
many's new Chancellor, and
other officials. He will discuss
outstanding issues of property
restitution and reparations to
victims of Nazis who left areas
of former Nazi occupation and
submitted claims after a 1953
deadline in West German legis-
lation.
He said he would seek a
number of changes for such vic-
tims and added that the assump-
tion by Erhard of the Chancel-
lor's post would not affect pros-
pects for such changes because
the new Chancellor's attitude
had always been a positive one.
(He noted that there were
two major items on the agen-
da of the executive plenary—
the budget and the situation
of the Zionist movement. In
respect to the budget, he said
negotiations would continue
with the Israel Treasurer and
Premier over the Israel gov-
ernment's participation in im-
migrant settlement and re-
lated problems because of the
difficult financial problems
created for the Jewish Agency
due to continuing large immi-
gration.
The world Zionist leader said
a radical change of approach
was needed on the American
Zionist scene. He said there was
a need for an "offensive" to
activate the existing "great po-

tential" in the United States
and added that a strong Zionist
movement was vital to Israel to
ensure a close link between the
young generation of American
Jews and other countries with
the State of Israel.
He said that in contrast with
the conditions when David Ben-
Gurion was Prime Minister,
there there was now a "new
tone" under Premier Levi Esh-
kol in relation to the Zionist
movement. However, he added,
for a strong Zionist movement
for Israel, Israel must make it
clear that it wants the Zionist
movement to be the first and
foremost interest for securing
Jewry's bond with the state.

U S. Gives $100,000
in Machinery, Tools
to ORT in Israel

WASHINGTON, (JTA)—The
Agency for International De-
velopment announced that a
$100,000 shipment of heavy ma-
chine and metal-working tools,.
all United States Government
excess property, was en route
to Israel for use by 20,000 stu-
dents in 30 vocational schools
operated by ORT. The U.S.S.
Export Agent carrying the ship-
ment left Hoboken, N. J., Oct.
23.
The shipment was the first
under a new AID plan to help
private American organizations
in their work in underdeveloped
countries. Under an agreement
signed last May between ORT
and AID, which administers the
United States foreign aid pro-
gram, ORT received acquisition
rights for $750,000 worth of
equipment declared excesses to
United States Government needs
and available for use in foreign
countries under provisions of
the United States Foreign As-
sistance Act of 1961.
The AID said ORT schools in
Iran, Tunisia and Morocco will
get future shipments. The
equipment for ORT schools in
Israel will arrive November 6.
It includes lathes, milling ma-
chines, drill presses, precision
grinders, gear cutter and acces-
sory machine tools. ORT was
the first voluntary agency reg-
istered with AID to sign this
type of agreement.
(The ORT vocational schools
in Iran have been granted a
subsidy by the Plan Organiza-
tion in that country of 2,200,000
rials ($30,000), it was announc-
ed in Geneva by the World
ORT Union. The subsidy was
given in recognition of the im-
portance of the contribution of
the ORT schools to the training
of skilled workers necessary to
Iran's development. Terms of
the subsidy agreement call for
the money to be used for new
equipment in the boys' schools.)

A former paratrooper, Zech-
arya had crossed twice into
Israel for espionage purposes
and was arrested on his third
attempt. He had received a total
of 1,400 Israeli pounds ($467)
for his services.

JERUSALEM — Dr. Nahum
Goldmann said Wednesday that
Jews "cannot abandon" their
deep interest in the fate of
Soviet Jewry "and must con-
tinue to bring forth facts and
voice their concern."
However, he warned, "we
must not allow the impression
to be created that we are taking
part in the cold war" between
East and West in so doing, par-
ticularly since Jews, "as with all
well - meaning peoples," hope
that the East-West relaxation
will "continue and expand. We
do hope that in the long run
such relaxation will be of bene-
fit also to Soviet Jews."
Goldmann spoke at a press
conference during which he also
said that the lack of a single
representative body in Amer-
ican Jewry had produced "some
chaos" also in dealing with the
problem of Soviet Jews. He ex-
pressed the hope there would
be some improvement in that
respect with the "Presidents
Club," representing 20 major
American Jewish organizations,
having decided to bring the
problem within its purview as
well as issues pertaining to the
problems of world Jewry.
He added he hoped the
special committee to be es-
tablished in the United States
to deal with the problem of
Soviet Jewry would include
representatives of the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee and
the three major rabbinical
organizations.

HAIFA (JTA) — The Haifa
