Tsur, chairman of the Zionist
Actions Committee, told the Jewish

prior to his departure.
Tsur said that all who attended
the conference came away with the
realization that the role of the
Zionist movement is greater than
they may have thought before and
with the knowledge that the suc-
cess or failure of the movement
will be in proportion to the growth

transformation of the Jewish spirit
that it brought about, but in the
shadow of Gen. de Gaulle's unex-
pected attack on Israel and the
Jewish people. which he said shows
the extent of the political struggles
that lie ahead. He noted that the
conference unanimously rejected
proposals for the separation of the
Jewish Agency from the World
Zionist Organization but wanted
the Zionist movement to throw
open its doors to the masses.
The vote was a rejection of far-

reaching plans for a reorganized
WZO which are on the agenda
of the next World Zionist Con-
gress opening in Jerusalem next
February.

for Aliya to Be
Urged for Zionists

NEW YORK—American Zionists
were told Tuesday of a plan to
revitalize the world Zionist move-
ment through a vigorous campaign
for Zionist education and aliya
(Jewish immigration to Israel)
from the affluent countries.
Yitzhak Korn, secretary general
of Ihud Olami, the labor world
Zionist organization now in the
U.S. to enlist support for his pro-
gram, told the American Zionist
Council at a special meeting of its
administrative committee that the
plan will be presented to he World
Zionist Congress to open in Jeri.-
i salem Feb. 19. It includes a per-
sonal pledge of aliya and Jewish
education by all who profess to
be Zionists. Rabbi Israel Miller,
chairman of the American Zionist
Council, presided at the meeting.
Organizationally, Korn said, the
present World Zionist Organiza-
tion-Jewish Agency unitary struc-
ture under his plan will be divided
into two parts. The new World
Zionist Organization will be re-
stricted to those Zionists who
pledge themselves or their families
to personal aliya within a period
of from three to five years.
The second, and larger group,

The Zionist conference here. at -
tended by 64 delegates and repre-
sentatives of various groups from
all parts of Western Europe, Scan-
dinavia and Britain, debated the
problem of the movement's future
in light of the social and psycho-
logical orientation of today's Jews,
and especially against the back-
ground of Israel's triumphs and
problems arising from the Six-Day
War.
The debate on the Zionist struc-
ture heard appeals for greater ef-
ficiency and dynamism. What is
needed, speakers said, was less a
change of structure than a take-
over of leadership by younger men,
and the adaptation of existing ,
bodies to their new requirements.
The resolution to that effect was '
adopted with only one dissenting
vote.

the invitation of the Union of
Orthodox Jewish Congregations of
America to study the structure
and methods of the American
Jewish community.
Rabbi Joseph Karasick, president
of the union who met with leaders
of French Jewry in Paris last June,
said the major problem is the
doubling of the Jewish population
in France through the influx of
more than 200,000 Jews from

Algeria and other North African
countries during the past 10 years.
As a result. Rabbi Karasick said,
the French Jewish community has
been faced with overwhelming
problems of establishing syna-
gogues, schools, communal centers
and other institutions for the new-
comers and staffing them with
trained personnel. There is a great
shortage of rabbis, religious and
Hebrew teachers and social and
youth workers in France, Rabbi
Karasick said.

and priority: the preparation of an

educated and trained aliya from
the affluent countries of the West."
Korn said he feels that the Zion-
ist movement achieved a major
victory in establishing a Jewish
state, but that in the years since
it has not had a real raison d'letre.
"Unless Zionism commits itself
fully to- a program for aliya and
Zionist education." he said. "it
cannot long exist. "
