ISRAEL ECHOES: Israel's former Prime Minister David Ben-
Gurion is now visiting the United States at a time when American
Jewry is more than ever worried about the great economic difficulties
which Israel is undergoing . . Confusion over the present economic
crisis in Israel is noted among American Jews, many of whom are
asking whether it is the present government of Israel which makes
economic policy or whether economic facts push the government
along . Within Israel, similar confusion prevails among the
people, leading at the present moment to a credibility gap and to a
lack of trust between the public and the government of Prime
Minister Levi Eshkol . . . All this has caused the lowering of public
morale, a series of whispering campaigns, and a wave of sick humor
of which the government is the principal object . . . Golda Meir,
former Foreign Minister, and Premier Eshkol attribute the disparaging
jokes to Ben-Gurion's Rafi party, calling the campaign a "foul
way of attacking the government by ridicule." . . But Ben-Gurion
himself makes no secret of the fact that he • has a low opinion of
the present government, and calls Eshkol publicly all kinds of names
. . . Whether he will do the same during his three-week visit to
the Jewish communities in the United States is, however, questionable
. • . People here remember that, when the Herut leader Menahem
Beigin came for a visit to this country after the establishment of
Israel — at the height of his attacks in Israel against the Ben-Gurion
government—he painstakingly refrained from criticizing Ben-Gurion
during his public appearance in the U S
"I can criticize my
government when I am in Israel, but don't expect me to say anything
against my government when I am abroad—it is, after all, my
government," he told an audience at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in
New York . . . American Jewish leaders interested in Israel, and
in honoring Ben-Gurion here. assume that, with all his sharp personal
opposition against Eshkol, Ben-Gurion will do no less than Beigin
did, and will abstain from attacking the present Israel government
publicly while addressing audiences in this country.
COMMUNAL AFFAIRS: Small Jewish communities, like the
federations and welfare funds in the larger cities, also have their
problems They need—and receive—specially-tailored counseling
and guidance under the auspices of the Council of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds . . . Some of their problems have to do with
upgrading fund-raising through solicitor training . . Another has
to do with their being beset by multiple appeals and a calendar of
events requiring advance planning to minimize conflict, . . . A good
many of them suffer also from frequent duplication of leadership,
resulting too often in a confusion of identity as to which campaign
effort a leader represents . . And there is, of course, the problem
of services to the aged which is different in the small communities
than in the larger centers, where there are Jewish homes for the
aged . Typical is the case in Sioux City, Iowa, where provisions

of the persons in the community over 70 years of age was taken
, It revealed a wide variety of individual needs among the aged
Only six persons could be considered candidates for a Home
for the Aged . . After considerable discussion, it was concluded that
operation of a home would place an overwhelming burden on the
community . . . It could result eventually in the collapse of local-
community programs and diversion of funds from national and
overseas needs . . . The Sioux City communal leaders therefore decided
that a well-rounded, diversified type of community program was
more important than construction of a Home for the Aged . . .
In Long Beach, California, a study on coping with needs of the
local Jewish aged people posed a number of questions of interest
to many other small Jewish communities . .
revealed the multiplicity of services available to the aged person
in a small community on a local level . The key questions raised
by the study were: Does the community need a program to develop

CONTEMPORARY HISTORY: Many books have been written on
the Nazi bestialities against Jews, but few have brought out facts
of how the civilized world—including the United States—had stood
aside and refused to help save Jews from Nazi hands, even when
this was possible . . A book on this subject has now, appeared
in this country under the title "A Conspiracy of Complicity and
Complacency," by David Porter, published by Vantage . The
author starts with his impressions of the Evian Conference on
Refugees called by President Roosevelt in 1938, at which practically
none of the 36 nations represented expressed willingness for mass_
admission of Jews persecuted by the Nazis . . He scrutinizes
severely the words and deeds of British statesmen like Churchill,
Atlee, Bevin and generals like Montgomery and Wavel . . . And, on
the basis of research, he claims that German documents confirm
that Hitler was more encouraged than discouraged, by the demeanor
of the outer world, to go ahead with the annihilation of Jews . .
The author also deals with the cooperation between Arab leaders
and the Nazis, and warns the world about the evil emanating from
Nasser's Egypt Several chapters in the book are also devoted
to Nazi postwar activity around the world, and how it is being
tolerated in various countries • .

whom settled in Montreal and
