B-G Rules Out Possibility of Reunion
Between His Rafi and Eshkol's Mapai

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

to The Jewish News)

ti

TEL AVIV—There is no chance
of a reunion between the Mapai
Party and Rafi, the independent
political group formed by ex-
Premier David Ben-Gurion when
he broke away from Mapai last
summer, according to. a statement
by Ben-Gurion published here
Wednesday.

Writing in the Rafi organ Mabat
Hadash, Ben-Gurion rejected a call
for Mapai - Rafi reconciliation
issued by Davar, the organ of
Histadrut, the Israel federation of
labor and backbone of Mapai. In
his negative reaction to Davar's
reconciliation proposal, Ben-Gur-
ion also renewed his personal
attack against Prime Minister Levi
Eshkol.

Leaders of Maarach (Mapai-Ah-
dut Avoda), which is now engaged
in negotiations on the composition
of the governing bodies of the
Histadrut, requested the represen-
tatives of Rafi to break their agree-
ment of cooperation with the His-
tadrut faction of Gahal (Herut-
Liberals) within the workers'
councils.

The request was presented in
the form of an ultimatum as a con-
dition for Rafi's participation in
the governing bodies of Histadrut.

so long to make pronouncements?"
Greater Washington's Rabbinical
Council, in its appeal, called New
Year's Eve celebrations a throw-
back to a pagan cult and a viola-
tion of the "basic tenets" of the
Jewish religion. It urged organiza-
tions "to refrain from sponsoring
or participating in public ar pri-
vate functions" on that Friday
night.
Regular Sabbath eve services
were scheduled by all synagogues
in the Kansas City area, and its
rabbinical association expressed
the `, `earnest hope" that Jews
would go to those services rather
than to the usual "dances, cocktail
parties and the like."
Congregants at the Marine

Park, New York, Jewish Center
were asked to sign a pledge that
they would attend services, and
in many communities Jewish
clubs have canceled or post-
poned regular New Year's Eve
parties this year.

The Philadelphia Branch of the
Rabbinical Assembly of America
(Conservative) took space in the
local Jewish press • to announce
that "your synagogue has arranged
a special oneg Shabbat to celebrate
the occasion. It won't be a riotous
evening, but it will be one on
which you can observe enjoyably
the commandment 'and the chil-
dren of Israel shall preserve the
Sabbath and keep it holy.' You'll
feel much better about it—and so
will your children."
Another Philadelphia congrega-
tion decided to fight fire with fire.
Cong. Ramat El in the suburbs has
arranged an elaborate oneg Shab-
bat, to be concluded with a full-
course breakfast. After services,
the cantor and temple choral group
will sing, and congregation mem-
bers will perform comedy skits.

Jewish Leaders Act Against Threat to Shehita

Commenting on this report, the
Israeli press describes as paradox-
ical a situation: when Premier
Eshkol decides . to adopt Ben-
Gurion's policy to prohibit a Zion-
ist Israeli party from participating
in representative bodies.

New Year-Sabbath
Conflict Brings
Rabbis' Appeals

Rabbi Douglas said that after
a one-hour service tonight, his
congregants will hold an oneg
Shabbat and discussion of views
on Vietnam "and how to bring
our boys home safe and sound
with a just and lasting peace:"
At midnight, there will be a
toast to the new year.

"Instead of running down our

y outh for their honest and sincere

c onvictions

and their self expres-
Si on of what they think is right,"
R abbi Douglas wrote, "let all,
y oung and old, set a good example
of what can be a truly noble,
nited gesture not in the street or
ar or saloon or nightclub, but in
th e House of God."

(Continued from Page 1)
a humane slaughter bill that has
been found acceptable by major
Jewish religious groups in the
state. They declared that Mrs.
Schmid was the sole dissenter
from a stand taken by the New
York State Humane Association,
at its statewide convention last
October, when an entirely dif-
ferent type of legislation was
advocated.
Rabbi Israel Miller, president of
the Rabbinical Council of America
(Orthodox) declared: "The Jewish
practice of Shehita—ritual slaugh-
ter of food animals — has been
universally recognized as a
humane method, and has so been
affirmed in legislation enacted in
the U.S. Congress and a number
of states. The large preponder-
ance of the Jewish community in
New York State is on record
accepting humane slaughter legis-
lation proposed last year by the
American Society for the Preven-
tion of Cruelty to Animals and
which will be reintroduced in
slightly revised form in the coming
session of the New York State
Legislature by the New York State
Humane Association. That legisla-
tion was approved by a convention
of the New York State Humane
Association last October with only
a single dissenting vote—that of
the main sponsor of The New York
Times advertisement. That sole
dissenter and her small following
are outside the mainstream of the
humane movement. Her ad and
the legislation suggested in it are
misleading and destructive of the
best interests of the humane
treatment of animals."

Rabbi Jacob J. Weinstein, presi-
dent of the Central Conference of
American Rabbis (Reform), said
that the advertisement "can only
have the effect of impairing a
painstakingly built harmonious re-
lationship among groups seeking
genuine humane slaughter legisla-
tion in New York State and cordial
relations among religious groups.
Mrs. Schmid gives the impression
that no effort to assure humane
treatment of animals is being con-
sidered, and that all who do not
endorse her own totally impracti-
cal proposals are cruelly indiffer-
ent. It is regrettable that she
should have so _ intemperately
chosen to publicize her mistaken
judgement. The Jewish community
will remain committed by its reli-
gious precepts to the humane treat-
ment of animals as it always has
been."

The bill being sponsored by the
New York State Humane Associa-
tion is similar in all essential re-
spects to one sponsored by the
American Society for the Preven-
tion of Cruelty to Animals in the
last session of the New York State
Legislature. It declares the Jew-
ish ritual method of slaughter —
shehita—to be humane. It stipu-
lates that, in the preparation of
beef animal s, only humane
methods shall be employed, spe-
cifically excluding the use of a
manually operated hammer, sledge
or pole axe as a means of slaugh-
tering or render any animals un-
conscious, or shackling and hoist-
ing of conscious animals.
The bill is applicable only to
beef animals for which there is a
restraining pen, acceptable to the
U.S. Department of Agriculture,
all of the major humane societies
of the country, and leading rab-
binic authorities. The ASPCA
acquired the patent rights to the
large animal restraining pen and
to all similar devices. Among the
patent rights it holds are those
acquired by the Joint Advisory
Committee as a result of its own
research, which were assigned to
the ASPCA gratis.
The ASPCA has made the "pen"
available to all packing houses
without royalty charges or license
fees of any kind. The ASPCA is
also continuing to sponsor re-
search and experimentation at the
Agricultural School of the Uni-
versity of Ohio on a similar device
for smaller animals, calves and

sheep. When such a device is per-
fected the law would be made
applicable to small animals as
well. In making these facts known,
the Jewish spokesmen pointed out
that Mrs. Schmid's bill "fails
completely to take account of
these very important develop-
ments, so carefully worked out."
(In Rochester, N.Y., C. Raymond
Naramour, president of the New
York State Humane Association,
confirmed to the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the last con-
vention of his organization, held
last October at Bath, N.Y., ap-
proved a proposed humane slaugh-
ter bill which has the backing of
the American Society for the Pre-

vention of Cruelty to Animals and
of the organized Jewish commu-
nity. ° He said that the only dis-
senter on that action was Mrs.
Schmid, who is a member of the
Humane Association as an

individual. )
