Eshkol Wants World Jewry to Gaff

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A world Jewish gathering to include
noted Jewish leaders from every profession and country is now
being considered by the Israel government to mark this state's
20th anniversary in 1968, Prime Minister Levi Eshkol announced
Monday in the Knesset (Parliament). The agenda of the confer-
ence he said, would be the partnership between Israel Jewry
and Jews outside of Israel.

Eshkol? who presented the budget of the Prime Minister's
Office, dedicated a major portion of his address to the problem
of Jewish survival. He said that many Jews. in Israel, espe-
daily the young ones, are not steeped in the ways of Jewish
tradition, nor has Israel developed a culture of its own.
The premier said that the two major centers of Jewish life

outside Israel — the East and the West — "do not come to Israel
for opposing reasons. Those who want to cannot, and those who
can do not want to."
Asserting that ties: between all three centers of Jewish life
are essential for the very existence of the Jewish people, Eshkol
said that Israel's youth must be imbued with Jewish values, and
Israelis everyfhere, including students, must find ways to reach
other Jews.

Dr. Shabtai Rosenne
Takes Comay's Place
for the Time Being

Dr. Shabtai Rosenne, legal adviser
to the Israeli Foreign Ministry

since the state was born in 1948,
arrived here from Jerusalem to
take up the post of acting Israeli
permanent representative to the
United Nations.
He will take the place for the
time of Israel's ambassador here
since 1960, Michael S. Comay, who

Far East, after which he will give
up his UN post and return to Je-
rusalem at his own request.

Only One of Three Jews

in Montreal Uses Yiddish

MONTREAL (JTA) — Yiddish;
which 99.6 per cent of the Jews
in metropolitan Montreal consider-
ed as their mother tongue in 1931,
was spoken by only 30.2 per cent
in 1961. The sharp drop in usage
of the language by East European
Jewry was reported in an interim
analysis by Louis Rosenberg, re-
search director of the Canadian
Jewish Congress.
The report indicated that, in
1961, the percentage of those able
to speak both official languages,
English and French, was higher
among the Jews than among , any
other ethnic group, except the

BONN — The presidium of the
Society for Christian-Jewish Coop-
eration Wednesday decided to cele-
brate Brotherhood Week, amid
mounting conflict that stemmed
from a recent statement of Josef
Cardinal Frings, Archbishop of
Cologne, to an American Rabbi.
One of the society's chairmen
said the organization would ask
the prelate to address a brother-
hood meeting, a decision that may
lead to resignations of some of
the organization's officers.
The society's three chairmen will
meet with the cardinal on Friday.
It is understood that if he fails to
make a clear apology for his re-
marks to Rabbi Max Nussbaum,
chairman of the American Section
of the World Jewish Congress, they
would resign.

The Tora of the Ellis Island Chapel which was used by genera-
tions of Jewish immigrants in their first religious services in this
country, is presented by Murray I. Gurfein (left), president of
United Hias Service, worldwide Jewish migration agency, to Charles
H. Silver, president of the new International Synagogue at the
John F. Kennedy Airport. The airport has replaced Ellis Island as
the principal port of entry for immigrants to the United States.

Rabbi Nussbaum, during a visit
to Germany two weeks ago,
quoted the archbishop as citing
alleged Jewish predominance in
various aspects of German life as
one of the explanations for Hit-
lerism. The cardinal said the
statement had been taken out of
context and distorted.

There was sharp contention at a
recent society meeting between
members of the Jewish community
who favored holding the Brother-
hood Week celebration, and had
visited the cardinal recently to
apologize for the "misunderstand-
ing" over his statement to Rabbi
Nussbaum, and Christians, who
were opposed to any compromise
over the issue and demanded that
the churchman issue an outright
