would not dare a conflict until
they were certain of success, he
declared that Israel cannot af-
ford to "tempt them" by secur-
ity weaknesses.
Eban expressed confidence
that American Jews are not
tired of giving, that if they
could not continue their great
humanitarian services "it would
take the light out of their lives";
that they feel a sense of pride
in the continuing labors to res-
cue the hundreds of thousands
whose prospects of salvation, he
declared, addressing himself to
his audience, "depends on you."
He concluded by declaring:
"In the spirit of solemnity, I
ask you to continue your ac-
tions, that you will stand with
us as ever, until Israel shall
have emerged from the shadows
into a gentler age."
Eban was introduced by Max
M. Fisher, who also conducted
the initial pledge-inviting por-
tion of the evening. He was
assisted in the calling of pledges
by Lewis Grossman.

Ettenheimer, chairmen of the

ROME — A two-day confer-
ence of European rabbis ended
Wednesday with a decision to
submit a memorandum to the
Soviet government expressing
grave concern about the relig-
ious situation of Soviet Jewry
"who are denied religious free-
dom guaranteed by the Soviet
constitution."
The resolution, which will be
given to the Soviet ambassador
in Rome, also asked the So-
viet government to permit the
baking of matzoth in state fac-
tories.
Rabbi A. Rose of Britain
cited a memorandum from
official sources showing a de-
crease in the number of syna-
gogues in Russia from 450 in
1954 to N in 1963 and said that
large Jewish communities had
been left without a single
house of worship.
The memorandum expressed
concern about the difficulties
facing Russian Jews in obtain-
ing matzho. The memorandum
asked that permission be given
for the manufacture of ritual
articles.
It also asked authorization to
permit ties for Russian Jews
with Jewish organizations in
other countries and appealed
especially for adequate govern-
ment measures to halt anti-
Semitic propaganda.
The rabbis were guests of
honor at a reception tendered
by Italian Jewish leaders at
which Fausto Pitigliani, presi-
dent of the Rome Jewish com-
munity, stressed that the time
and place of the conference
might prove to be well chosen
in view of "present hopes
for understanding and a p-
proach among the monotheistic
religions."
Judge Piperno, president of
the union of Italian Jewish
Communities, discussed Soviet
discrimination against Russian
Jews.

a man's house is blessed.—Baba

tion of the policy of an open
door for the hordes of immi-
grants who must find haven
in Israel, the country's heavy
burdens of indebtedness which
compel it to maintain its
financial reserve in order to
continue the meticulous rec-
ord of repayment of all its
borrowings, and the obligation
to extend its technological
and educational processes.
On the latter score. Eban
placed emphasis on the manner
in which Israel is overwhelmed
by Arabs. whose territories,
•stretching from the Atlantic to
the Persian Gulf, are 500 times
the size of Israel and their num-
bers 40,000,000 to I s r a el's
2,350,000. He said by 1980 it
will be 100,000,000 to Israel's
4,000.000, and he warned that
"only by a high degree of scien-
tific and allied accomplishments
can Israel be expected to hold
its own against the sheer weight
of Arab numbers."
By the same token, he said,
while Nasser and the heads of
13 states decided at the recent
Cairo conference not to wage
war against Israel because they
