Vatican Sources Claim 'No Material
Changes' in Document on the Jews

ROME (JTA) — "Qualified
sources" at the Vatican said the
Secretary for the Promotion of
Christian Unity, which met at the
Vatican all last week to finalize
its attitude toward the Ecumenical
Council's declaration on repudia-
ting the charge of deicide as ap-
plying to the Jewish people, has
made no "material" changes in that
document, 11 Messagero, leading
Italian newspaper, reports.

The secretariat, under the presi-
dency of Augustin Cardinal Bea,
consists of 30 bishops from around
the world. They met to consider
242 amendments to the Declara-
tion on Relations with Non-Chris-
tian Religions, adopted by the
Ecumenical Council last November
by the overwhelming vote of 1,992
to 99.
While no word has come from
the Bea Secretariat about the dis-
cussions of the 30 bishops, it was
pointed out here that many of the
amendments were of a minor na-
ture, and that a number of the
amendments concerned wording in
the draft declaration affecting the
Moslems, rather than the Jews.

According to some Vatican
sources, the secretariat made an
effort to bolster the acceptabil-
ity of the declaration by improv-
ing some of the terminology in
such a way as to reduce Moslem
opposition , to the principal ob-
jective of keeping intact those

portions of the document which
affect the Jewish people. It was
asserted that no dilution of those
portions were considered by the
assembled bishops.
The draft declaration will be
brought up again before the next
session of the Ecumenical Council,
to convene Sept. 17. If approved
by the Council finally next fall, it
will then become official Catholic
doctrine, after promulgation by
Pope Paul VI.
Meanwhile, in Chicago, a plea to
the Catholic Church to adopt the
declaration was voiced by the
Christian Century, one of the most
influential Protestant journals in

Rabbi Pearlmutter's

Rabbi Jacob Pearlmutter of
Baltimore has issued the second
volume of his "Darchei Noam —
Ways of Pleasantness."
Commending the book, Dr. Is-
rael M. Goldman of Cong. Chizuk
Amuno of Baltimore stated:
It is truly a great achievement.
It is an excellent anthology of
Judaism selected from the classic
sources of Jewish literature. The
themes you have selected and the
quotations you have chosen are
simply magnificent.
"In view of the fact that this
volume, as your previous volume,
presents the Hebrew text in vocal-

the United States.
In an editorial in the current
issue, the weekly summarized the
status of the Declaration on Rela-
tions With Non-Christian Religions
and pointed out that stiff opposi-
tion to the declaration had deve-
loped in highest Vatican circles.
"Men of good will still hope that,
at its fourth assembly, Vatican
Council II will purge itself of hate-
ful, bigoted, unbiblical, divisive
and oppressive attitudes toward
Jews," the Christian Century edi-
torial said. "It is not the Jew who
is on trial for the crucifixion of
Christ, but Christians who, in
vicious bigotry, slay the spirit of
Christ in their cruel hounding of
innocent Jews. Let the church be-
gin its fourth assembly in contri-
tion and repentence."

European Communities
to Join in Fund Study

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

ZURICH — Jewish community
services and other fund-raising or-
ganizations in 14 West European
countries will be asked to join in
a study of fund raising in those
communities, launched here Tues-
day under the joint sponsorship
of four major Jewish organizations.
The study is being sponsored by
the Jewish Agency for Israel,
Keren Hayesod, the Standing Con-
ference of European Jewish Com-
munity Services and the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee.
"The termination of the Confer-
ence on Jewish Material Claims
Against Germany and changes in
relations between Israel and other
Jewish communities underlines the
need for a reappraisal of the fund-
raising efforts of European Jewish
communities and has moved us to
join forces in an undertaking which
we consider to have broad signifi-
cance for the future of Jewish
life," the communique declared. It
was signed by the spokesman for
the four groups.
• The 14-month research project
will be directed by Abraham A.
Kessle r, director of the Eco-
nomic Research Corp. of Jeru-
salem, which conducted a similar
survey in Israel three years ago
under auspices of the Jewish
Agency, the JDC and the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations and
Welfare Funds of the United
One theme of discussions pre-
ceding the decision was that Euro-
pean Jewish communities were
faced with the challenge of estab-
lishing their independence from
aid from the American Jewish
community and of continuing and
improving their aid to Israel. It
was argued also that the European
communities must also assume their
"fair share" of responsibility for
mutual aid to less fortunate Jew-
ish communities outside of Israel.

A horrid siren sounds the hour on

The day when man should with the

I hate that sound, I hate that threaten-

It leaves me in a doubtful mood,
I hope that weary sound on Sabbath
noon should cease.
