Non-Intimidation
on Vietnam Urged by
Reform Rabbis' Head

NEW YORK, N. Y. — The presi-
dent of the Central Conference
of American Rabbis implored Re-
form Rabbis and other clergymen
not to be intimidated by congrega-
tional and community pressures
and speak out forthrightly in call-
ing for a peaceful solution to the
conflict in Vietnam.
At the CCAR's executive meet-
ing, the president, Rabbi Jacob J.
Weinstein, Chicago, called atten-
tion to reports that Reform Jewish
spiritual leaders in various parts
of the country had been pressured
by congregational presidents and
boards to refrain from making any
comments or to speak out at all
on the war at Vietnam.
The Conference statement re-
minded the lay leadership of Re-
form congregations that "a free
pulpit is the health and the hope
of the synagogue, an ever present
help to the thinking power of
democracy and the guardian of
those freedoms by which faith may
speak to power. A sobered nation
may yet be grateful to those who
in the hour of current pressures
remained loyal to the human race
and to the dream of a mankind
free of the scourge of war."

History of Radom Jews
Shows Population Down

LONDON (JTA)--A new history
of Radom, a Polish town marking
its 810th anniversary, describes
the decimation of Radom's Jews
under the Nazi occupation, it was
reported Tuesday from Warsaw.
Prior to the outbreak of World
War II, there were 32,000 Jews in
Radom. In April 1941, the Nazis
established two ghettos in Radom.
The number of Jews in the ghettos
was augmented by roundups from
neighboring townships between
1942 and 1943.
A total of 36,000 Jews was de-
ported from the Radom ghettos to
the death camps of Treblinka,
Maidanek and Auschwitz. There
are less than 20 Jews now resident
in Radom.
