Orthodox Rabbis Proclaim Festival
for Holy City Unification Anniversary

Rabbi Leizer Levin, on behalf
of the Council of Orthodox Rabbis
of Detroit, joined the rabbinical
authorities of Israel to proclaim
the importance of the first anniver-
sary of the reunification of Jeru-
salem on the first
day of ,the week
of `Bamidbar,' 28
days in Iyar 5728
—or, Sunda y,
May 26, 1968. He
urged Detroit
Jewry to cele-
brate the day
and asked all De-
troit synagogues
Rabbi Levin to say festival
prayers at services.
"The observance of this historic
day will unite alai Yisrael' with
`Medinas Yisrael' in our stand that
there is only one Holy City of
Jerusalem," said the council state-
ment.
"This will also mark the libera-
tion of the sacred places in Israel.
We must stand guard against the
enemy who disregarded all ele-

mentary principles of decency and
respect for the dead by their wild
and utter destruction and desorcra-
tion of our Holy Places," the state-
ment said.
"We therefore want to give
expression of thanks and gratitude
to our Father in Heaven, for all
the miracles that He did with our
people in our own day."

Czech Jews Demand Rights
From New Regime in Prague

NEW YORK (JTA)—The Coun-
cil of Jewish Religious Communi-
ties in Bohemia and Moravia has
published a declaration of de-
mands on the new Czechoslovak
government. They said the de-
mands are "just" in view of the
suffering of Czech Jewry under
the Nazi occupation and the Com-
munist repression of Jews during
the 1950s and after last June's
Arab-Israel war.
The demands were contained in
a declaration adopted at a meet-
ing of the council last month and
published in the Council's journal,
"Vestnik." They were just made
public in translation by the World
Jewish Congress here.
A similar declaration w a s
adopted by the Central Council of
Jewish Communities of Slovakia
whose president attended the meet-
ing of the Bohemia-Moravia Jew-
ish leaders.
The declaration, prepared
against the background of the re-
cent liberlization of the Prague
regime, commenced with "a de-
mand" that the government pub-
licly rehabilitate the reputations
of Czech Jews who were accused
or slandered during the political
trials of the 1950s.
It also asked that "future inter-
national political developments
should not effect the position of
the Jewish community and that
no obstacle be placed in the way
of contacts having always been
in the interest of the Czechoslo-
vak Socialist Republic." The
later demand was an obvious ref-
erence to the restrictions placed
on Jewish contacts with Israel
following last June's war.
The declaration also asked the
new regime to "permit immediate
permanent and free access to the

place on the River Ohre where
the ashes of some 20,000 prisoners
were thrown into the water." The
ministry for national defense had
refused to allow regular visits to
this and other sites where Czech
Jews were martyred.
The declaration stated that "we
wish to take this opportunity to
declare that we shall never agree
to the destruction of the state of
Israel and to the murder of its
population. It is in that country,
the cradle of our religion, that
the refugees found a haven .. .
This attitude of ours is in full
accord with our Czechoslovak
patriotism."
The Bohemian and Moravian
Jews demanded that "religious
education of youth should not be
hampered by administrative diffi-
culties." A similar declaration
adopted by the Jewish communi-
ties of Slovakia demanded the
"elementary hum an right that
everyone who wishes should be
able to be reunited with his
family." The reference was to the
many Slovakian Jews who im-
migrated to Israel after World
War II.
Meanwhile, the liberal Czech
writer, Ladislov Mnacko had
ended his 10-month self-imposed
exile in Israel and returned to
Prague where, he said, he will
try to foster improved relations
between Czechoslovakia and Israel.
Mnacko left his native country
following last June's Arab-Israel
war when the Prague regime
severed diplomatic relations with
Israel.
He has cabled friends here that
he will return to Israel soon for a
visit but that he will remain in
Czechoslovakia because it is his
home.
