ADL Charges Miami Opera Guild
Patronizes Clubs Practicing Prejudiee

MIAMI (JTA)—Despite repeat-
ed promises, the Opera Guild of
Greater Miami continues to be
involved in scheduling social and
-.fund-raising functions in private
clubs with records of anti-Jewish
discrimination, according to the
Florida office of the Anti-Defama-
tion League of Bnai Brith.
The promises to end the practice
have been made to the ADL by
Dr. Arturo di Filippi, director of
the Guild and by its leading mem-
bers in a controversy extending
back at least five years, the ADL
said A particular point of issue
is the choice of the Surf Club for
the Guild's annual All-Star func-
The most recent development
was an effort by the ADL to work
out a statement of policy in co-
operation with the Opera Guild,
notifying the community of a firm
anti-bias policy in choosing - sites
for its functions. That began when
the Opera Guild informed the ADL
last year that it was holding a
function at the Surf Club but
would not thereafter hold any
events "at any club or other fa-
cility which bars persons as mem-
bers because of their religion."

Last January, the Guild again
held its All-Star function at the
Surf Club, but told the ADL that
it was the Friends of the Opera
and not the Opera Guild which
sponsored the event. The ADL
replied that the Friends "had the
same name, same chairman, same
sponsoring auxiliary and the

same undemocratic policy."
- The Guild then asked the ADL
to draw up the proposed statement
of policy, to be distributed by the
Guild to its supporters. The ADL
prepared such a letter, accepting
a Guild proposal to hold affairs
at private clubs "which may dis-
criminate, providing such function
is held only for persons who are
members of that club" and provid-
ing that "there shall be no pub-
licity reflecting that such function
is a community-wide function to

which other than actual members
of the discriminatory club have
been invited."
Guild officials made some re-
visions and returned the revised
statement to the ADL for approval.
The ADL rejected the revised ver-
sion because one of the revisions
eliminated the provision about
publicity which the ADL had pro-
posed. In rejecting the revised
statement, the ADL said that Guild
revisions had the effect of "totally
disregarding the specific purpose
and intent of all the discussions"
between the two groups-.

sonnel, their families, and hos-

Over ten years ago, a young,
unknown American Senator
arrived at Lod. The Senator
from Massachusetts asked to
meet with David Ben-Gurion,
then, Prime Minister of Israel.
Ben-Gurion's assistants re-
fused the request. Only one of
his staff thought that it was
worthwhile to invest time in
the Senator from Massachul
setts and he arranged for him
-to meet with Ben-Gurion.
Seven years later, the young
Senator was elected President
of the United States. His name
was John Fitzgerald Kennedy.
The President of the United
States did not forget the man
in Jerusalem who had treated
him courteously. He invited
him to an intimate birthday
celebration at the White
House. The name of the man
from Jerusalem was Teddy

There are many stories
about Teddy Kollek's highly
developed talent in public re-
lations with the great men of
the world.

The man who was Director
General of the Prime Minister's Office for over 10 years, knew how to open every door
and heart in Washington, Paris, or Rangoon. This talent was of help when he decided to
establish the Israel Museum, which now contains art treasures that adorn the capitol
of Israel,

When Ben-Gurion resigned, Teddy Kollek also decided to leave. When RAFT
(Reshimat Poalei Yisrael) was organized, Teddy Kollek joined the new party and be-
came its candidate for the Mayoralty of the City of Jerusalem. Teddy won a great
personal victory and four historic years as the new Mayor of Jerusalem.
