Goldberg's Many Services to Jewry

'He is a worthy successor to
Adlai Stevenson" is the way the
New York Times concluded its edi-
torial commending Pr e s i d e n t
Johnson's selection of Arthur
Goldberg for the important Uni-
ted Nations ambassadorial post.
Except for Arab complaints
about his being a Jew and a Zion-
ist, there was general agreement
that President Johnson had made
a wise selection for the very vital
post for this country and for the
world.
Goldberg is a Zionist. His wife
was active in Hadassah and in her
youth was a Young Judaean• Nei-
ther is apologetic for their Jewish
devotions, and they have gained
admiration for the loyalty and
honesty of their Jewish attitudes.
The former Supreme Court Jus-
tice will be remembered for sev-
eral very important speeches he
has delivered — his most recent
one in Jerusalem before the Bnai
Brith; his address before the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee in Washington, on May
3, when he affirmed, in the Bran-
deis fashion, "I am a Zionist,"
his famous speech in New York
on May 2 when he pleaded. with
the USSR to eliminate anti-Semi-
tism from its practices, and the
very scholarly address he deliv-
ered two years ago, at the Jewish

Publication Society dinner in New
York, evaluating the revised trans-
lation of the Torah.
The JPS American Jewish Year
Book for 1963, in the section "The
Netherlands," contains the follow-
ing:
"United States Secretary of La-
bor Arthur Goldberg attended the
Kol Nidre services at the Liberal

Synagogue of Amsterdam on Yom
Kippur 1961 and attended other
Yom Kippur services at the his-
toric Portuguese Synagogue. Dur-
ing Secretary Goldberg's visit to
Holland, he placed a wreath at the
Anne Frank House. He read a
message from President Kennedy,
who said Anne Frank had left 'a
. gift that will survive her enemies."

BRUSSELS (JTA)—Two young
Israeli violinists, Y e h o s h u a
Epstein and Yair Klez, who have
been studying in Belgium for sev-
eral years, gave a command per-
formance for Queen Elisabeth in
her Stuyvenberg Castle.
Both artists won first prize three
years ago at the Brussels Conserv-
atory and were later admitted for
a three-year stay at the Queen
Elisabeth Musical Institute where
they continued their studies. Queen
Elisabeth warmly congratulated
the two Israelis.
King Baudouin received at the
palace a delegation of the Belgian
Friends of the Hebrew University
of Jerusalem led by Prof. Jean
Baugniet, president of the group,
who presented the King with the

Golden Book of the Queen Elisa-
beth Institute of Archaeology at
the university.

A & H LIFE AGENTS LIFETIME OPPORTUNITY

At a special convocation, Nov. 17, 1963, Supreme Court Justice
Goldberg became the newly-designated chairman of the board of
overseers of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America. This photo,
taken at that time in New York, shows Justice Goldberg with Semi-
nary Chancellor Dr. Louis Finkelstein, who conferred the honorary
degree upon the then—Supreme Court Justice at that convocation, at
the New York Seminary.

President Johnson Explains Goldberg
Nomination; Appointment Hailed at UN

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Presi-
dent Johnson revealed that he urged
Goldberg to resign from the
Court to take the UN position.
He called Goldberg "a man of
courage, conviction, and humani-
tarianism." Since America is seek-
ing a world based on law, designa-
tion of a judge to the UN was
termed logical.
President Johnson stressed
there was no more important task
than achievement of a "world
where all men may live in peace
with hope of justice under rule of
law." He said that "where Gov.
Stevenson was descended from
some of America's oldest settlers,
Justice Goldberg was born of
some of our newest"—a reference
to Goldberg's Jewish immigrant
parents. Mr. Goldberg will be the
voice not only for an administra-
tion but of an entire nation,
President Johnson said.
Justice Goldberg, aged 56, said
he felt his new post was an assign-
ment "to the greatest adventure
in man's history—governing rela-
tions between sovereign nations
by law." "It is with great humili-
ty," he said, "that I undertake the
role of our nation's advocate of
peace in the Council of Nations."
He promised to pursue the Ste-
venson message to the world of
"man's ancient supplication." He
asked, "grant us peace, Thy most
precious gift."
Informed quarters in Washing-
ton said Johnson was especially
eager to replace Stevenson with a
known liberal such as Goldberg to
help sell unpopular American
policies in Viet Nam and the
Dominican Republic—issues which
caused rebellion by many liberals
against current American policies.
The general feeling in Washington
was that Goldberg's qualities as
a mediator and negotiator, evident
in many complex labor disputes,
might help him gain great success
and acclaim at the United Nations.
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (JTA)
..–President Johnson's appointment
of Arthur J. Goldberg as successor
to the late Adlai E. Stevenson as
head of the American delegation
to the United Nations was hailed
widely here—except by the Rus-
sians, who were saying nothing,
and the Arabs, who showed fur-
ious anger but saved any com-

Two Israeli Violinists PI ay for Belgian Queen

ments they might have for the
future.
Johnson's surprise selection of
Justice Goldberg to the post just
vacated by Stevenson, who was
almost universally regarded as the
most outstanding personage ever
to hold the U.S. Ambassadorship
here, was interpreted immediately
by the vast majority of diplomats
as a move showing that President
Johnson has vast respect for the
United Nations and confidence in
its viability.
"Mr. Johnson," said one high
ranking diplomat, "has now shown
that the United Nations really
means a great deal to him and his
government. He has reached al-
most as high up in the American
Government as he could to select
his Ambassador. He has chosen a
man of known brilliance and
sharpness of perception. Further-
more, in these days, when so
much must be done to effect a
genuine consensus inside the

United Nation s, Mr. Johnson
picked a man known for his ability
at mediation, his skill as a nego-
tiator. There is no doubt that Jus-
tice Goldberg will be a great suc-
cessor to a great man, to Mr.
Stevenson."
Justice Goldberg's self-identi-
fication as an active Jew was not
overlooked here. He is an honor-
ary vice-president of the American
Jewish Committee; honorary
chairman of the Jewish Center for
the United Nations, a synagogue
to be built in this area, near simi-
lar Protestant and Catholic
churches devoted to UN prin-
ciples; and a man in whose honor
a special library has been created
at this Center under the title of
"Judaism and Peace."
In an address last spring before
the American Israel Public Af-
fairs Committee„ Justice Goldberg
declared "I am a Zionist" and out-
lined his philosophy of deep iden-
tification with Israel.
