MONTREAL — A delegation of
the Canadian Jewish Congress ask-
ed the Canadian government to
express "deep and abiding con-
cern" for the rights of the Jews
in the Soviet Union and convey
this concern to Soviet authorities
"in the name of humanity and jus-
tice."
The delegation, led by Saul
Hayes, CJC executive vice presi-
dent, called on Paul Martin, Secre-
tary of State for External - Affairs,
and conveyed to him the "deep
anxiety" of Canadian Jewry over
"the continued isolation of the
Jews in the Soviet Union from
Jewish communities in other coun-
tries and their inability to main-
tain a communal existence to
which they are entitled within the
framework of the Soviet constitu-
tion and Soviet policy towards its
nationalities."
The delegation noted that re-
cently there have been visable
signs of "relaxation of the diffi-
culties which the Jewish communi-
ty has suffered for such a long
time" and that these manifesta-
tions "strengthen the hope that
the Soviet authorities will rectify
the situation fully and restore the
Jews of the Soviet Union to a posi-
tion of equality with other religious
and ethnic groups."
Martin told the delegation that
"it should be clear to all the world,
including the Soviet Union, that
we deplore and condemn discrim-
ination in any country, in any
form, on grounds of race or creed
or color or nationality. The cause
of human rights and human free-
dom is and must be indivisible.
Let us not limit our concern just
to anti-Semitism in the USSR, im-
portant and vital as that concern
must be. Let us condemn vigor-
ously all sins of discrimination, of
failure to permit fundamental hu-
man freedoms and of retrograde
laws which grind down the indi-
vidual anywhere in the world."
In addition to Hayes, the CJC
delegation included Prof. Perry
Meyer, Rabbi S. M. Zambrowsky,
and Dr. Samuel Lewin, all of Mon-
treal; Harry Wolfson, of Toronto,
and Hy Bessin, Mervin Mirsky and
Hy Soloway, of Ottawa.

Israel Halts Farm Work
Near Syrian Border

JERUSALEM (JTA) — The Is-
raeli government i n f or m e d the
United Nations that it is granting
a request by UN Secretary-General
U Thant to halt temporarily some
farm work near the Syrian border,
so as to aid the UN in its efforts
to relax tensions between Syria
and Israel and bring back peace
and quiet along the Syrian-Israeli
frontier. The information was con-
veyed to Gen. Odd Bull, UN Truce
chief by Yosef Tekoah, Deputy

affairs.
The issue concerns cultivation of
some fields in the vicinity of Al-
magor, near the northern border,
where both the Syrians and Israelis
threatened to go on with cultiva-
tion. Political circles here said
that, if Israel holds back on culti-
vation, such a step would be only
temporary "as Israel is not pre-
pared to renounce its sovereignity
over part of its national territory."
It is believed here that Thant's
request that work be halted in the
fields near Almagor had been
made on the demands of Gen. Bull,
who apparently feels that without
Syrian-Israeli agreement on the
cultivation of the disputed fields
he may not succeed in when he
visited the Israeli Foreign Minis-
try here recently.
Gen. Bull's initiative was seen
here also is another step taken by
Thant who was reported to have
sent a letter to the Security Coun-

ed a new, eight-man executive corn-
mittee, is now seeking to expedite
plans for merging Herut with the
Liberal Party, it was announced
here by Yaccov Meridor, the new
Herut chairman.

Meridor has succeeded to the
chairmanship from which Mena-
chem Beigin, Herut's top-most lead-
er for many years, resigned in
order to facilitate a merger with
the Liberals.
Meridor said he would try to
find out whether it is possible to
find a foundation for a relation-
ship between the merged Herat-
Liberal group and the Rafi Party.
The latter is the dissident faction
that broke away from Mapai un-
der the leadership of former Prime
Minister David Ben-Gurion.
Ohe major aim of his executive
leadership, Meridor said, would be
an effort to persuade Beigin to re-
sume the Herut Party chairman-
ship. The eight-man executive com-

since such a resolution would only
complicate Gen. Bull's efforts.
Observers here pointed out that
a decision to halt certain cultiva-
tion work temporarily to facilitate
easement of border tensions would
only bring additional proof that Is-
rael is determined to help ensure
tranquility along its borders,
especially along the Syrian front-
ier. In the past, it was noted, Is-
rael has taken other conciliatory
steps to help ease tensions.
