front of the group, bore the brunt
of the attack. He was hit several
times on the head with an iron
bar. Rabbi Lelyveld returned to
Cleveland after resting at the home
of a relative at Florence, Ala.
Dr. Lelyveld has been senior
rabbi of Fairmont Temple in
Cleveland, one of the largest in

has been prominent in many na-
tional Jewish organizations, in-
cluding World University Service

850 Orthodox, Reform and Con-

to Gov. Paul B. Johnson Jr. of
Mississippi, expressing shock at
the attack on Rabbi Lelyveld.
At the same time, the board
wired Rabbi Lelyveld, expressing
pride that he had "offered him-
self on the altar of freedom and
dignity of man, in the spirit of

Rabbi Lelyveld said he would
return to Mississippi if the Federal

that he has no confidence in the

The rabbi declared: "It is
pitiful that the leaders of the
state of Mississippi fail to realize
that they are shaping their own
doom along with that of the closed
society they have created."
