FRANKFURT — A school "just
like any other" but, in fact, like
no other in Germany, is now in
operation in Friedrichstrasse.
The two teachers at the first
Jewish school to open in Germany
since the Nazi era insist it is like
any other German school. A. Olko-
witz, a leader of the Frankfurt
Jewish community and director of
the school, points out it is not a re-
ligious institution. However, Heb-
rew and Jewish culture are taught,
and the school is closed on the Sab-
bath.
Six Christian students are en-
rolled, and they are not asked to
participate in the Hebrew and Jew-
ish culture classes.
The 4,000 Jews in Frankfurt
are supporting the school without
any help . from the state except
for the provision of a West Ger-
man Christian teacher. The
other teacher is an Israeli Jew.
Olkowitz said the school was
*founded a month ago because. the
Frankfurt Jewish community — the
third Jargest in Germany — wanted
to restore its tradition of Jewish
education, perhaps the longest in
Germany. Jewish secular schools
were founded here more than 150
years ago.

SPECIAL PACKAGE DEAL

was extended by Edward Roper,
vice president of WXUR media.
Samuel L. Gaber, director of the
ADL regional office here, called
the bid "a belated attempt" to give
"a false picture of impartiality" to
support disavowal "of biased pre-
sentations." He questioned the right
of the station to keep its license.
The ADL official cited as "anti-
Semitic hate-mongering" a WXUR
program of Aug. 16, 1965 in which
the then moderator, Tom Livzey
"engaged in and encouraged the
broadcasting of anti-Semitic can-
ards."
He added that anti-Semitism was
"no more debatable than is porno-
graphy or Communist propaganda"
and that broadcast of such material
by a radio station indicated fail-
ure to comply with the legal stand-
ard "of serving the public con-
venience, interest or necessity." He
said a copy of his letter was sent to
the Federal Communications Com-
mission.
