GENEVA — An official of West
Germany's Jewish community
Tuesday disputed a Bonn rabbi's
pessimistic estimate of the future
of Jews in that country.
Dr. Hendryk van Damm, general
secretary of the Central Council
of Jews in Germany, told the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency that Dr.
Bernard Farkas, rabbi of Bonn and
Aachen, erred when he said that
there were only 26,000 Jews left
in Germany, more than half of
whom are past 50 years of age.
Dr. Farkas made his remarks in
a report to the biennial convention
of the World Council of Synagogues
in London. Dr. Van Damm is at-
tending the Conference of Jewish
Organizations here. He said that
"The average age of Jews in Ger-
many during the last 10 years
remains constant — under 46."
He said that there were 27,000
Jews affiliated with various com-
munities in West Germany, but
there were "others who were not
affiliated yet remained Jews ana
therefore must be counted as
such." Dr. Van Damm said that
Dr. Farkas had come to West Ger-
many from Czechoslovakia a few
years ago and was not a member

Rabbis of the West German Fe-
