BB Young Adults Asked to Assist
Underprivileged at Annual Convention
STARLIGHT, Pa. — American
Jews–Ion the basis of their experi-
ence—can especially understand
the desire of Negroes to own busi-
nesses in the ghettos, according to
Jason R. Silverman, WaShington-
Baltimore director of the Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai Brith.
But, in an address to the 23rd
annual international convention of
the Bnai Brith Young Adults, he
opposed demands for the forced
elintination of white merchants
from ghetto areas. This, he warned
would leave "a residue of com-
plete and utter chaos."
This so-called "solution" to ur-
ban unrest, offered with growing
frequency in the wake of ghetto
riots, fails to take into account
the special skills in merchandis-
ing and management. accounting
and buying, needed to operate a
successful business today, he said.
And. he added, it would violate
"the elementary principle of free-
dom of choice, inherent in a de-
The ADL spokesman_ empha-
sized that the Jewish people are
sympathetic with the "entirely
reasonable desire of the Negroes
to become part of American so-
ciety through participation in
the mercantile establishment
and will continue their historic
role of assisting other minorities
in positive ways."
In this connection. he said Jew-
ish experience in many fields can
be a significant factor in assisting
job training and cooperative busi-
ness programs in behalf of other

Silverman's call for involvement
Jewish youth in programs to
assist the underprivileged, was the
theme of the convention.
Delegates agree that although
"our generation lives in the
midst of revolutionary change in
moral practices, we look in vain
for reasonable standards to be -
followed." They called for a col-
loquium of rabbis, behavioral
scientists and youth leaders to
seek as wide a consensus as.pos-
sible on "morality for the 1970s."
The convention, in another reso-
lution, held that involvement of
youth in the struggle for progress,
justice and equality was a better
"mind-expanding" device than
marijuana and LSD. It went on
record as opposing the legalization
of marijuana but said some of the
harsher penalties for its use im-
posed on young offenders should
be eased. The resolution warned
that increasing use of hallucina-
tory drugs and "pep pills" could
indicate profound social crisis.
Another resolution supported the
efforts of Negro educators to in-
troduce Afro-American studies in
the classroom and declared that
this trend should apply to the intro-
duction of Hebrew courses
wherever there. is a sizeable Jew-
ish student body.
It said that "the use of Hebrew
as the language of modern Israel
and its significance to Western
culture merit its recognition as a
major subject of study in Amer-
ican classrooms." It is urged that
"the Jewish cointribution to world
civilization be adequately pre-
sented in the public schools cur-
ricula." The delegates also went on
record as supporting President
Johnson's recommendations to re-
duce the voting age to 18 and as
approving proposed guaranteed an-
nual wages and other measures to
