Conservative Delegates Urge UN
to Encourage Arab-Israel Talks
KIAMESHA LAKE, N.Y. (JTA)-
An appeal for action to bring about
direct peace talks between Israel
and the Arab countries, and a
warning to the United Nations
against trying to force upon the
parties concerned a formula for
such talks, was approved by 3,000
delegates at the biennial convert ;
tion here of the United Synagogue
Henry N. Rapaport, of Scarsdale,
N.Y., who was elected at the clos-
ing session to a second two-year
term as president, told the resolu-
tions session that there should be
no consideration of Israeli with-
drawal from any of the occupied
Arab territories until "direct de-
liberations" were in effect between
the Arab and Israeli leaders.
In another resolution, the dele-
gates, representing Conservative
congregations throughout t h e
United States and Canada, urged
that Jews and other men of good
will join in efforts "to dramatize
and demonstrate" their concern
for the fate of Soviet Jewry,
"until our brethren in the Soviet
Union receive their full cultural
and religious rights."
The delegates said that the need
for dialogue between Jews and
Christians "has become especially
apparent as a result of the recent
Arab-Israeli conflict and the mis-
understanding" among Christians
"with respect to the Israeli posi-
tion on Jerusalem"; voiced "dis-
tress" over the fact that some con-
gregations confine Jewish educa-
tion for children to one-day-a-week
schools; and urged affiliated con-
gregations to improve salaries and
working conditions for qualified
