Action Against Bonn Urged if Scientists Stay in Egypt

GREENFIELD PARK, N.Y.
(JTA)—The 52nd annual conven-
tion of the National Council of
Young Israel concluded' here with
a call by Rabbi David Hill, presi-
dent of the organization, to con-
sider action against West Germany
unless the Bonn government re-
calls its nuclear scientists from
Egypt where they are working
for Nasser's armament industry.
All West German goods should
be boycotted to achieve results, ac-
cording to Rabbi Hill, who said,
"A West Germany that allows its
scientists to use their scheming vile
talents to destroy Jews is a Ger-
many of Nazis and should be called
by that name."
"We have written to the West
German ambassador," Rabbi Hill
stated. "We have tried to arrange
conferences and meetings. Y e t ,
knowing the Germans and Nazis
of the past, we are not surprised
at the double talk answers, the
tongue-in-cheek cynicism and out-
ward lies."
"It is a firegone conclusion," the
rabbi declared, "that when you
deal with Nazis, logic, emotions,
pleading, crying and hope are
wasted. These people only under-
stand force. They respect the hand
of action."
Rabbi Hill told his listeners,
that, unlike during the 1930's and
1940's when there was the threat
of German retaliation against a
boycott, today, "no such argument
exists. No such counter threat is
possible."
In an address before the dele-
gates, Congressman Leonard Farb-
stein of New York said that "Ger-
many actually has an arms base in
Egypt" by permitting Germans to
produce military weapons there.
He charged that "Dr. Ferdinand
Berandner, who mobilized hun-
dreds of German scientists for
Nasser, is on record as saying "We
have to finish the work which
Hitler began." He also asserted
that upon the return from Egypt of

Prof. N. Gruder and Prof. V. Fay-
lanch they stated that the Bonn
government was entirely behind
the scientists in Egypt and that
they also enjoyed the support of
German ambassador in Cairo.
Delegates also discussed a pro-
posal which would provide re-
ligious chaplains to high schools
as an alternative to Bible readings
and prayers in the schools. The
students could consult a chaplain
on a voluntary basis. according to
the Young Israel proposal, and
therefore there would be no in-
fringement on the principle of
separation of church and state.
Adding his voice to the protest
issued by the Rabbinical Council
if America, Rabbi Hill deplored
the "running to Rome" of secu-
lar Jewish organizations.
Such organizations as the Ameri-
can Jewish Committee, Jewish War
Veterans and Bnai Brith "are sec-
ular," he said. "What is their back-
ground that allows them to speak
out on a religious level to a religi-
ous leader? . . . The Vatican, in
the final analysis, is a religious
state."
He suggested that Jews be more
circumspect "in running to ask
favors and to figuratively kneel
before the Vatican which still does
not recognize the state of Israel,
and which fears to speak of religi-
ous truth lest they antagonize the
Arabs."
LATIN YOUNG ISRAEL
Rabbi Abraham M. Hershberg,
founder and dean of the Yeshiva
of Mexico and Central America,
said there is a great necessity in
Latin America for the Young Israel
movement.
Rabbi Hershberg, under the au-
spices of the National Council of
Young Israel, organized the Young
Israel movement in Latin America.
The president of the Union of
Orthodox Rabbis of Latin America,
found "no place for conservative
Jewry in Latin America." He said
the people there "can not accept

selves do not adhere to orthodox
tenents, they want neverthe less to
be able to experience true Juda-
ism."
His yeshiva, which opened three
years ago, has grown from an en-
rollment of 22 to 200 boys from
kindergarten through college. He
cited this as evidence of the place
for "Torah education in Latin
America."
