Canadian Jews Report
Progress in Drive for
Outlawing Hate Mail

TORONTO (JTA)—A campaign
for federal legislation to ban dis-
semination of material inciting
hatred of racial and religious
groups is making concrete and
steady progress, a Jewish leader
in the campaign reported to a
community rally here.

The report was made by Sidney
M. Harris, chairman of the joint
community relations committee of
the Canadian Jewish Congress and
Bnai Brith. In recent months,
many major Canadian cities have
been flooded with such hate litera-
ture. Many Christian religious
groups, as well as civic organiza-
tions, have protested the material
and have asked authorities for
action.

In a related report, the Canadian
Jewish Congress summarized ef-
forts to cope with the problem,
which it said included the task of
disabusing public opinion of the
idea that "the law upholds some
kind of inalienable right to convey
patent lies, incitement to violence
and the advocacy of forceable sup-
pression of the rights of others."
The CJC said that the legislation
it sought would give individuals
"a completely free choice in ex-
pressing themselves" but - with
notification to them of "the legal
risks they run if their use of free-
dom of expression goes too far in
the circumstances."

Among advances cited by the
THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS CJC was the suspension of mail
Friday, March 26, 1965-15 privileges of the National States
immemmalimmommimm■ Rights Party of Birmingham, Ala-
bama, and the sustaining of the
ban by a board of review in Ottawa.

2 of 3 Rabbis Ordained
at Yeshiva U. Give Full
Time to Community

NEW YORK—Two out of every
three rabbis ordained at Yeshiva
University's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan
Theological Seminary are actually
engaged in full-time service to the
American Jewish community, ac-
cording to a recent survey of rab-
binic alumni conducted by Rabbi
Abraham Avrech, associate direc-
tor of the university's community
service division.
The survey, conducted in con-
junction with the Yeshiva Univer-
sity rabbinic alumni annual mid-
year conference Wednesday, also
disclosed that 80 per cent of the
942 rabbis are under 45 years of
age.
Rabbi Avrech said that most of
the rabbinic alumni-40.5 per cent
—are serving as spiritual leaders
of congregations throughout the
United States and abroad. Another
10.2 per cent are working full time
in Jewish education; 7.7 per cent
are members of the Yeshiva Uni-
versity faculty; 7.1 per cent are in
Jewish communal works (chap-
lains and organizational work);
and 1.7 per cent are working in
Israel.
Among the remainder, 2.5 per
cent are engaged in graduate stud-
ies; 22.7 per cent are in business
and professional life; and 3.6 per
cent are either retired, ill or un-
classified, Rabbi Avrech said.

The Americanization of Jew-
ry throughout the United States
is no longer a problem which
confronts the American-Jewish
community, but Jews here are
faced with the problem of re-
educating themselves in the
traditional values of their her-
itage, Dr. Abraham G. Duker,
professor of history and social
institutions at Yeshiva Univer-
sity, told the conference Wed-
nesday.
Discussing "Problems of Jewish
Self-Definition in American Plural-
ism," he declared that "American
Jews are better integrated in
American culture than in the
culture of Judaism. Americaniza-
tion is no longer a 'problem. The
problem now is re-Judaization."

Swiss Give Dairy Products
to JDC for Feeding Needy

GENEVA (JTA)—A gift of 33

tribution Committee by the Swiss

Rabbi De Sola Pool
Honored on 80th Year

NEW YORK (JTA)—More than
400 persons paid tribute Sunday
night to Dr. David de Sola Pool,
rabbi emeritus of Congregation
Shearith Israel—the Spanish and
Portuguese Synagogue—in honor of
the rabbi's 80th birthday.
Dr. de Sola Pool retired from
the active leadership of the 311-
year-old synagogue in 1957, after
serving as the congregation's spirit-
ual leader for 50 years. Sharing
the honors with the rabbi was his
wife, Mrs. Tamar de Sola Pool.
Rabbi and Mrs. de Sola Pool in-
terrupted a vacation in Israel to
come here for the celebration—
which took place at the Waldorf
Astoria Hotel—although his actual
80th birthday will not take place
until May 16. They are now at
work together on a book.
