Swiss Jewry Dismayed
at 'Increasing Growth' of
Neo-Nazism in Germany

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

BERNE—Concern over the "in-
creasing growth" of nee-Nazi
movements in West Germany and
Austria was voiced Tuesday by
the Central Committee of the
Federation of Swiss Jewish Com-
munities at its meeting here.
The committee cited par-
ticularly the anti-Semitic headlines
of the extremist West German
newspaper Deutsche National and
Soldatenzeitung and asserted that
West German authorities had not
taken any action to ban it. It was
also noted that an anti-Semitic
article had recently appeared in a
provincial Swiss Catholic News-
paper.

of the Seminary, said. "It is our
sincere hope and expectation that
this annual Lehman Institute sab-
batical fellowship will stimulate
creative thinking and writing about
some of the most perplexing and
complicated theoretical and prac-
tical problems of our time.
Dr. Finkelstein announced that
the first recipient of the Sabato
Morais Fellowship is Rabbi Max
J. Routtenberg of Temple Bnai
Sholom, Rockville Centre, N.Y.,
president of the Rabbinical Assem-
bly, the international association
of Conservative rabbis.
Rabbi Routtenberg plans to de-
vote his year to independent study
to research on, and the writing
of, a book which will atttempt to
distill the ethical teachings of
Judaism from biblical times to the
present. The book will consist of
material from the sources, as well
as original material revealing the
pertinence of Judaism's ethical
tradition to today's world.

NEW YORK — The first inter-
religious study program offering
seminary students an opportunity
to study the process of government
as related to religion will be con-
ducted this summer by the Di-
vinity School of Harvard Univer-
sity and the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations.
Twenty-one students drawn from
Protestant, Catholic and Jewish
seminaries will spend July 4-29 at
UAHC's Religious Action Center in
Washington in this new course in
theological education, made pos-
sible by a grant of $18,000 from
the Stern Family Fund.
Students will hear a cross-
section of views from prominent
authorities in government and
from nongovernmental groups—
labor, religious, business and the
mass media. Many high govern-
ment officials will address the
group including members of the
Supreme Court, Senators and
Congressmen and representa-
tives of federal agencies.
Dr. Herbert Long, Peabody Lec-

turer and dean of the students of
the Harvard Divinity School, and
Rabbi Richard G. Hirsch, Wash-
ington, D.C., director of the
UAHC's Religious Action Center,
will serve as full-time advisers
for the seminar. Prominent theo-
logians and religious spokesmen
will also participate.
Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath,
UAHC president, commented "If
religious groups are going to be
effective in social action, they
must develop a corps of experts
who are capable of using the
knowledge of others and whose
own knowledge will be motivated
by the search for moral values."
