BB Reward in Case of Mississippi Blast

WASHLNGTON (JTA) — Bnai
Brith has offered a reward of $5,-
000 for information leading to the
arrest and conviction of persons
"criminally involved" in the May
27 bombing of a synagogue in
Meridian, Miss. and earlier attacks
on churches there.
The offer was made by Dr. Wil-
liam A. -Wexler, president of Bnai
Brith, in a telegram to Mayor Al
Key of Meridian.
Wexler wired that the reward
money would be made available
through the mayor's office "within
24 hours of the conviction of the
guilty party." ,
Other rewards totaling $45,000
have been offered by the city and
private groups.
Temple Beth Israel, a Reform
synagogue, was the target of
night bombers who caused con-
siderable damage to the religious
school. The nearby sanctuary
and assembly buildings escaped
serious damage.
F.B.I. sources indicated that
the blast was caused by several

sticks of dynamite fashioned into
a home-made bomb. It blew out
a wall of the building, which was
empty at the time, and broke win-
dows in nearby homes.
Rabbi Milton I. Schlager, religi-
ous leader of Beth Israel, is a
member of the "Committee of Con-
science" formed several months
ago to deal with the problem of
night bombings of houses of wor-
ship, which included five Negro
churches.
At Friday night services before
the bombing of Beth Israel, a col-
lection was taken up on behalf of
the victimized Negro congrega-
tioris.
Rabbi Schlager told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency at the time
that 10 classrooms and the syna-
gogue library were damaged by
the bomb.
In his telegram to Mayor Key,
Wexler deplored the 'cowardly
acts of terror and violence" which,
he said, were "so debasing to
American concepts of civilized hu-
man decency."
