NEW YORK (JTA) — Stressing
that it would not alter its long-
standing policy of avoiding any
interfaith dialogues on purely theo-
logical themes, the Synagogue
'Council of America (Orthodox)
Confirmed Monday that it will par-
ticipate in a series of discussions
on issues "of universal religious
' Concern" with Protestant and Ro-
man Catholic groups.
Rabbi Henry Siegman, executive
director of the SCA, told the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency Monday
that the organization would hold
is first formal interfaith discus-
"ons on religious views of various
,-- — problems with the Episcopal
Church in New York on March 5
I and 6, and with the National Coun-
cil of Churches and the National
Conference of Catholic Bishops in
Boston on May 7 and 8.
He noted that, while the planned
meetings did not represent any
change in policy by the Synagogue
Council, they did involve a new
departure as far as program was
concerned in that they were the
first discussions to be held on re-
ligious values toward various is-

,-

sues.
In the past, he said, the SCA
had engaged in joint social ac-
tion on certain issues but not in
discussion of religious values

with regard to these issues.
The SCA official emphasized
that the organization still followed
the guidelines on interfaith dis-
cussion as put forward by Rabbi
Joseph B. Soloveitehik of Boston,
a leading Orthodox rabbinic auth-
ority, which called for the limiting
of interfaith discussion to "uni-
versal religious problems" and
bars dialogue on purely theological
questions.

The meeting with Episcopalian
leaders next month will deal with
family life, while the meeting in
Boston in May would deal with
the role of religious conscience as
applied to five specific areas—war
and peace, racial justice, society's
economic obligations to its citi-
zens, state aid to religious educa-
tion and law and religious con-
science.
Rabbi Siegman pointed out that
the issues to be dealt with at the
forthcoming conferences would
concern not only the social aspects
of the problems but will bring to
bear on the discussions the con-
tributions of the religious heritage
of the three faiths.

Rochester, the Jewish Community
Council and the AJCommittee as
the final event of a day-long sym-
posium on "The Jewish People
and the Catholic People Look at
Each Other."
It was the prelate's first public
address on Jewish. Christian rela-
tions since his appointment.

a delegation from the Jewish com.

would have exempted ritual slaugh-

The bill, introduced by Rep.

the slaughter of livestock to those

methods of slaughtering "in ac-

of the Jewish faith."

Knesset Gets 5-Year Plan for Increased Productivity

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A new
five-year plan for Israeli industry
calling for a total increase in out-
put of $1,300,000,000 and the
doubling of exports, was introduc-
ed into the Knesset Monday by
Zev Shell, Israel's minister of
commerce and industry.
The plan calls for major invest-
ments to be made in plants manu-
facturing machine tools and agri-
cultural equipment which are
usually made to individual speci-
fication and do not call for mass

production requiring large mar-
kets.
The industrial scheme will pro-
vide jobs for 100,000 workers, in-
cluding 70,000 new openings and
30,000 replacements for retiring
workers.
