NEW YORK—Temple Emanuel
of New York, the largest Reform
temple in the United States, has
resigned from the Union of Ameri-
can Hebrew Congregations, the
representative body of Reform
synagogues, it was disclosed Tues-
The resignation came as the cli-
max of a long-time disagreement
over the procedures of the UAHC
in electing its board of trustees
and other procedures. The 150-
member board is made up of
UAHC officers of affiliated organi-
zations and members of congrega-
tions at large who are nominated
by a committee appointed by the
chairman of the board of the
Alfred M. Bachrach, president of
the temple board, said that the
temple officers felt that the UAHC
should be operated directly by the
congregations and that a majority
of the UAHC board should there-
fore be direct appointees of the
The resignation cannot become
effective until the next meeting of
the UAHC general assembly in
1965. The temple has agreed to
meet with a special UAHC commit-
tee to find a solution to the dis-
pute before that date.

Jewish Museum Gets Papal Medal
for Famous Friedenberg Collection

The Terra Sancta medal struck
by the government of Israel to
commemorate the historic pilgrim-
age of Pope Paul VI to the Holy
Land in 1963, is now in the pos-
session of the Jewish Museum of
New York City, where it has been
added to the famous Friedenberg
Medal and Coin Collection.

Israel Chief Rabbis
Urging Support for
Bonds on Holy Days

Chief Rabbis Isser Yehuda Unter-
man and Yitzhak Nissim of Israel
have called upon Jews throughout
the world to support the special
effort for Israel Bonds during the
High Holiday season.
Synagogues throughout the United
States and Canada will devote a
portion of their services on the
High Holidays to the Israel Bond
program, Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz,
vice president of the Israel Bond
Organization, said.
In his message, Chief Rabbi
Unt er man emphasized that
"Israel Bonds have been a great
uplifting force for the building
and settlement of the country,
as for the foundation of econom-
ic enterprises in our state and
or the expansion of its industry.
This has made possible the ab-
sorption of tens of thousands of
new immigrants and the creation
of new cities and settlements."
Chief Rabbi Nissim, in his mes-
sage, called upon world Jewry to
"unite to labor even more for Is-
raels' strengthening by increased
support of her financial channels,
amongst the most important of
which are State of Israel Bonds,
whose mission is to serve as a lever
of development for Israel, her set-
tlement and her economic flourish-





leased by Hans van Weeren-Griek,
acting museum director, who re-
vealed that the papal medal was
one of several recently acquired,
in line with a new policy adopted
by the museum.
These plans for enlarging the
collection will enable the museum
to fulfill in spirit the original
aim of its collector. The late
Samuel Friedenberg had created
his unique portrait-gallery-in-
medals with the intention of es-
tablishing a permanent, pictorial
record of the Jewish contribution
to mankind stretching from the
days of antiquity to our own
It was announced that with the
consent of the son of the donor,
Daniel M. Friedenberg, honorary
curator of coins, medals, and
plaques, the museum, although it
would no longer commission addi-
tional portraits, would continue to
acquire, through purchase or pre-
sentation, copies of all medals
struck in honor of Jews or with
associations for Jews.
Containing highly prized items of
rare antiquity and evidences of
superb artistry, the Friedenberg
Medal and Coin Collection is re-
nowned amongst numismatists the
world over. It is however its at-
traction as a "Jewish Hall of Fame"
to which it owes its extraordinary
measure of popularity amongst the
general public and which continues
to draw visitors of the Jewish

History Prof. Hoenig Again Rejects
Antiquity of the Dead Sea Scrolls

Rabbis Rough It
at Scout Jamboree

than 2,000 Jewish boys were among
52,000 scouts and leaders who
attended the sixth national jam-
boree of the Boy Scouts of Amer-
ica at Valley Forge State Park,
Pa., this week.
A staff of seven rabbis was tak-
ing care of the religious needs of
the Jewish boys, under Chaplain
General Rabbi Aryeh Lev of New
York, director of the chaplaincy
commission of the National Jewish
Welfare Board.
Adviser to the Jewish chaplain
staff was Rabbi Harry Lasker of
New Brunswick, N. J., director of
the Jewish relationships service of
the Boy Scouts of America.
The rabbis wore Scout leaders'
uniforms, slept in tents, and ate
jamboree food. All cooking was
done by the scouts in patrols for
10 persons. The Boy Scouts of
America provided kosher food
for those who indicated their de-
sire to observe the dietary laws.
A staff of Protestant, Catholic
and Mormon chaplains also con-
ducted worship services at the
When the scouts gathered for
Sabbath services they probably rep-
resented the largest congregation
of American Jewish youth ever to
assemble for outdoor religious
Three Israeli scouts represented
the Boy Scouts of Israel. The Na-
tional Jewish Committee on Scout-
ing, has provided jamboree schol-
arships to enable these Israeli
scouts to come to America and
participate in the jamboree.

That the "Dead Sea Scrolls" still
are lively issue became evident in
assertions by Dr. Sidney B. Hoe-
nig, professor of history at Ye-
shiva University, New York, who
maintains that the words dorshe
halakot in the Nahum scrolls as
well as in the Zadokie fragment
of the Damascus document and
the Hodayot hymn scrolls point to
a much later date than claimed.
Together with Prof. Solomon
Zeitlin of Drapsie College, Dr.
Hoenig challenges those who claim
antiquity for the Dead Sea Scrolls.
In Journal of Biblical Literature
and in subsequent statements, Dr.
Hoenig states:
"The words B'Talmud (in the
Talmud) and Brit (circumcision)
appear in many of the scrolls, yet
the Talmud was not written till
the fifth century of the common
era and the word Brit meaning
"circumcision" was not used till
a f ter Paul's antinomian teach-
The date and origin of the
scrolls have been at the center of
a lively controversy since they
w e r e discovered in 1947 and
brought to the world's attention as
possibly the oldest known manu-
scripts relating to the Bible.
"You can't rely solely on pale-
ography or the carbon 14 test,"
Dr. Hoenig says, "one must also
study modes of writing."
He deplores the unscholarly
rush to publicize every fragment
that is discovered before it is
made available to the community
of scholars for study and analysis.
He takes exception, for example,
to conclusions drawn by Prof.
Cecil Roth in England who has

made known his "inescapable"
conclusion that the Dead Sea
Scrolls are linked to the Sicarr
Zealots—extremists in the great
revolt against Rome in 66-73 CE—
as based upon the new findings
at Masada.
Prof. Yigal Yadin, who has been
excavating the Masada ruins, has
not yet published any photostats
of his finds, Dr. Hoenig noted, and
asked: "How then can a careful
scholar make such assertions if he
has not seen the original evi-

Professors, Clergymen
on Study Tour of Israel

NEW YORK (JTA) — A group
of 38 university faculty members
and Christian clergymen left New
York for a 29-day study tour of
Israel organized under the auspices

Canada and 14 from states west of
the Mississippi River. The clergy-
men represent most of the major
Christian denominations in the
