Israel Firm on Bar
to Arab Inspection

formed circles indicated here that
Israel will not accept the United
States demand for international
inspection of the Nebi Rubin at-
Omic reactor which was built with
the help of the U.S.A.
It was made clear that Israel
does not object to the principle
of atomic energy control — but in-
sists on knowing who the con-
troller will be. Israel wants re-
newal of the existing bilateral
pact between Israel and the
United States, which was signed
in 1959 and is to expire next July.
But Israel objects to inspection
by the International Atomic En-
ergy Agency.
It was stressed here that no
Arab has accepted the principle
of international inspection, as
Israel has done. On the other
hand, IAEA's regional head-
quarters are located in Cairo, to
which, of course, Israel has no
Furthermore, it was pointed out,
Israel is not on the IAEA's board
of directors, which includes rep-
resentatives of Egypt, Iraq, Mor-
occo and Tunisia. Thus, it was
noted here, it is possible that an
inspection team to be sent to Is-
rael could include representa-
tives from these hostile Arab
Emphasis was also laid here on
the fact that it is well known that
the Nebi Rubin reactor is used
only for research and training,
and that it has been visited reg-
ularly by scientists from the U.S.A.

Day Schools Urged
by Reform Rabbi

NEW YORK (JTA)—The Union
of American Hebrew Congrega-
tions was called upon to study
and implement plans for the
establishment under Reform aus-
pices of six Jewish day schools
on the elementary and high school
levels in metropolitan centers in
this country.
The proposal was made by Rabbi
Alvan Rubin, of Temple Sinai,
Roslyn Heights, L. I., during a
symposium on Jewish education at
the annual assembly of delegates
of the New York Federation of
Reform Synagogues.
Rabbi Rubin called upon
American Reform Judaism to
continue as the "experimental
and creative branch of Juda-
ism" by founding a network of
Jewish day schools in six major
cities. He asked that this be
carried out by the UAHC to
"bring fresh energy and re-
newed vitality for a vibrant
positive Jewish community."
Taking issue with Rabbi Rubin's
proposal, Rabbi Paul M. Steinberg,
executive dean of the New York
school of the Hebrew Union Col-
lege-Jewish Institute of Religion,
said he was "unalterably opposed
to the establishment of day
schools by the Reform movement."
Dr. Julius Mark, senior rabbi of
Temple Emanu-El, criticized Re-
:form Jews who advocate t h e
, establishment of parochial schools.
Addressing the dedication ceremo-
nies of the temple's new religious
School and auditorium, Dr. Mark
sai d that "parochial education
means the segregation of our chil-

brigadier general.

New Organization to Aid Russian Jews Hears
Keating Call for Protests Against USSR

NEW YORK (JTA)—Sen. Ken-
neth B. Keating called for a na-
tionwide petition, to be signed by
millions of Americans of all faiths,
to be presented to Soviet Prime
Minister Khrushchev as a protest
and "remonstrance" against anti-
Jewish persecutions by the Soviet
He made the proposal at a pro-
test meeting sponsored by the
newly formed American League
for Russian Jews, declaring: "We
must convey both to the govern-
ment of the Soviet Union and to
the average Russian the growing
concern in the free world over
Stalinist tactics against the Jew-
ish minority in the Soviet Union."
Morris Brafman, chairman of
the new organization, said that
it would seek to "aid the Jews
in the Soviet Union to live as
Jews, culturally and religiously,
and to emigrate if they so de-
sire." He called upon the Soviet
government to allow the Jews
"to live as a free people or let
them leave the country."
The new group called on Presi-
dent Johnson and the U.S. Govern-
ment as well as the United Nations
to intervene on behalf of human
rights and human dignity of the
Russian Jews, and to demand "that
Soviet Russia accord its Jewish
subjects the elementary rights of
leaving the country where they
are persecuted, permitting them
to go to the land of their fore-
fathers, the land of Israel, where
they can live as Jews in freedom,
dignity and security."

Australian Premier Slams
Soviet Book, Pledges Action
CANBERRA, Australia (JTA)-
Prime Minister Robert Menzies as-
sured Parliament that, if the sub-
ject of Soviet anti-Semitism is de-
bated at the forthcoming United
Nations General Assembly this fall,
the Australian delegation would
"certainly express in most force-
ful terms" the opposition of the
government to both racial and re-
ligious intolerance.
The matter was raised when P.
Aston, a Liberal member of Par-
liament, referred to previously in-
troduced reproductions from the
anti-Semitic book, "Judaism With-
out Embellishment," published last
year in Kiev by the Ukrainian Aca-
demy of Science.
Aston asked the prime minis-
ter whether, in view of con-

U.S. Jewish Veterans
to Ask LBJ Supply
New Arms to Israel

TEL AVIV, (JTA)—The Jewish
War Veterans of the United States
announced here through their na-
tional commander, Daniel N. Heller,
that they are going to request
President Johnson to supply mod-
ern arms to Israel.
In addition, Heller said, the Jew-
ish veterans will also launch a
campaign to inform American
public opinion that Egypt uses
United States aid to help build
its military machine, aimed at the
extermination of Israel.
Heller, visiting Israel, made
those statements after he had met
with high officials of the Israeli
Ministry of Defense, conferred with
Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, and
expressed his admiration for
Israel's present armaments, which
he witnessed during the mammoth
military parade held at Beersheba
in celebration of Israel's 16th an-
Heller asserted that another pro-
ject to be pursued by the Jewish
veterans will concern demands on
the West German Government to
recall its missile scientists from

tinned anti-Jewish propaganda
in Russia, he would instruct the
Australian representative at the
United Nations to bring the is-
sue up, and to seek aid from
other nations to bring pressure
on Russia "to stop this infringe-
ment on human rights."
Replying, the prime minister
said he had seen "this wretched
publication." He added that the
issue was not reached at the end
of the agenda of the last General
Assembly, but that it probably
would be listed again this year. He
expressed the hope that the Aus-
tralian views would be heard and
have far-reaching effects.

Washington Governor Issues
Decree Against Russian Bigotry
clamation denouncing Soviet anti-

May 3rd—Detroit Institute of Arts

The governor, in his proclama-
tion, expressed a protest against
"the press campaign (in the USSR)
which condemns Jews and Juda-
ism as subversive." "We protest,"
he stated, "the discrimination in
employment and education, the un-
just and severe punishments in-
flicted on Jews for so-called econ-
omic crimes. We protest the use
of the Jew as a scapegoat, the de-
liberate encouragement of popular
anti-Semitism, the systematic at-
tempt to reduce the Jew to second-
class citizen."
