Jewish Agencies Hold
Overseas Tour for Youth

GENEVA (JTA) — A group of
10 American Jewish college stu-
dents completed here the orienta-
tion period of the first Overseas
Fellowship Study Tour co-spon-
sored by the American Joint Dis-
tribution Committee, the Jewish
Agency, the World ORT Union and
the United HIAS Service. All four
agencies receive funds from the
United Jewish Appeal.
The fellowships were granted to
the group on the basis of their
academic records and their poten-
tial for future leadership on
campus and in their home com-
Initiated by director - general
Charles Jordan of the JDC, the
study tour project was undertaken
by the sponsoring agencies as an
experiment which they anticipate
will eventually lead to an expanded
program of overseas service oppor-
tunities for young American Jews.
The group will devote the sum-
mer to a study of the programs of
migration, resettlement and social
assistance to Jewish refugees and
settled populations in Europe,
Israel and North Africa which the
agencies operate as a team and
which are given financial support
by the United Jewish Appeal.

JERUSALEM — The Chief Rab-
binate of Israel agreed last week
to the transplantation of kidneys
from deceased donors — within
minutes after death — to patients
in need of such transplants.
This major concession by the
Rabbinate — which generally has
resisted dissection of bodies for
religious reasons — was announc-
ed by Dr. Kalman- J. Mann, direct-
or-general of the Hadassah Medi-
cal Organization here, as he spoke
at the dedication of the sterile
section of the new Hadassah Kid-
ney Transplant Unit.
The 'unit is headed by Prof.
Marco Caine of the Hadassah-He-
brew University Medical Center.
The sterile division was donated
by Mr. and Mrs. Leon Perahia of
Buenos Aires, in memory of Mr.
Perahia's parents.
A kidney transplant from a de-
ceased person has to be effected
immediately after death occurs if
it is to save the life of a person
doomed by diseased kidneys. The
Chief Rabbinate has agreed to the
posthumous donation of a kidney
to save a life, providing the dona-
tion is made freely and with full
understanding during the donor's
Prof. Caine, who has visited
key kidney transplant centers in
the United States and Europe
to study latest techniques in this
field, said that overwhelming
susceptibility to infection is one
of the big problems in treating
patients who have received kid-
ney transplants.
To counter the danger of infec-
tion, every patient has to be iso-
lated in a unit as sterile as an
operating theater, with intense
care taken to sterilize all food,
equipment, clothing and persons
coming into contact with the
patient, Prof. Caine said. It is be-
cause of this that the elaborate
and complex sterile section has
been devised at very great ex-

N.Y. Synagogue Marred
2nd Time in Six Months

SOMERS, N. •Y. (JTA) — The
Hebrew Congregation here was
desecrated for the second time in
six months. July 9. Several swas-
tikas and the words "Hitler For-

epithets were painted on the
building with black paint.
The discovery of the desecra-
tion was made by Rabbi Joseph
Schapiro when he arrived for Sab-
bath services. Six months ago,
vandals broke several windows in
the synagogue which is located in
the town of Shenorock in West-
