Israel Gets Tariff Cults in Pact With Euromart
(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)
BRUSSELS — A formal agree-
ment was finally reached Monday
night between Israel and the
European Economic Community
under which Israel will receive
immediate substantial cuts in tar-
iffs on 21 of its exports to the six-
nation European Common Market.
The agreement is for three years.
A champagne toast in the head-
quarters of the EEC here signaled
the end of the negotiations which
began in November 1962. An ex-
change of letters took place be-
tween Alex Herbst, president of
the mixed delegation of EEC rep-
resentatives and its member states,
and Ambassador Emil Najar, head
of the Israeli negotiators.
The agreement covers reduction
of duties and tariffs on Israeli ex-
port products, suspension of the 20
per cent EEC common external
tariff, lowering of national duties
to the external tariff reduction
level and specific arrangements on
some exports. Altogether the agree-
ment deals with 25 Israeli export
items to the EEC.
Israel will receive a reduction
of 20 per cent of the common ex-
ternal tariff and immediate re-
A short time ago, when I visited the
countries of South America, I came to
a Jewish nhool in One of the suburbs
of Buenos Aires. I was surprised to
hear the teacher—a very young girl—
explaining to her pupils a chapter of
the Bible in fluent Hebrew, and even
the pupils answering In Hebrew. I
asked the teacher, where did she get
her training. She showed me, proudly,
her diploma, from the "Rabbi Gold
Institute Teachers of Jerusalem.
When I returnd to Israel, I decided
to go to Jerusalem and see this Insti-
tute. I found in the institute scores
of students from all countries of the
Diaspora: from Europe, North and
South America and even from far off
Australia. They all have one purpose:
to study so that they can successfully
fulfill their duty as teachers of Jewish
children in the Diaspora. The program
is packed: Hebrew, Bible, Talmud,
The Institute was established in the
year of 1958 by the Department for
Torah Education. and Culture in the
Diaspora of the World Zionist Organi-
zation. The Institute accepts suitable
pupils from countries of the Diaspora
that oblige themselves to return to
their countries and teach in the Jewish
schools there. The students spend one
year at the Institute in intensive study
and Israeli atmosphere. They also
travel to see the country.
The only "failure" of the Institute
was that a number of the students
decided to remain and did not want to
return to the Diaspora.

The troublesome issue of Israeli
orange exports is dealt with a dec-
laration binding the EEC to ex-
amine the question whenever the
EEC reached a comprehensive
agreement with another country
which is also a substantial ex-
porter of oranges.
The issue of Israeli egg exports
was left for further negotiations.
On some other items, the EEC ne-
gotiators spoke of the possibility
of continued exports by Israel
without such exports being covered
in the agreement.
The agreement also provided
for establishment of a mixed com-
mittee to meet once a year to see
that the agreement is implement-
ed. In the event of an emergency,
any of the the parties can call
for a special meeting of the mixed

Jewish Communities Fail to Involve
College Youth in Work— Hillel Chief
LOS ANGELES, (JTA) — Jew-
ish community life suffers an "ir-

Hillel Foundations, said, calling

American Jewry gives "too little
attention to the need of developing
among our young people a sense of

to facilitate their transition from
the campus into the mainstream of

He asked that national Jewish

The Hillel national director also
criticized the "stepchild treat
ment" given to programs of Jewish
education for the college commun-
ity, comparing the average of $100
a year spent by American Jewry
on primary Jewish schooling for
each youngster with "less than $10
a year to advance the Jewish know-
ledge of the college student."
Predicting that within a few
years 80 per cent of the Jewish
college youth will be attending
schools of higher learning, he
urged that the community give
"greater attention and better fi-
nancing" to Jewish education for
