World Jewry Rallied to Plight
of Starviwi Millions in Biafra

NEW YORK (JTA)—The launch-
ing of a major American Jewish
effort to save millions of lives in
the starving areas of Biafra was
announced here with the forma-
tion of the American Jewish Em-
ergency Effort for Biafran Relief,
165 .E. 56th St. New York, N.Y.
10022.
In Geneva, Dr. Nahum Gold-
mann, president of the World Jew-
ish Congress, Tuesday urged Jew-
ish communities, organizations and
individuals all over the world to
"rally to help the international, ag-
encies" providing relief to Biafra.
In a statement issued here Tues-
day, Dr. Goldmann deplored "the
unspeakable horrors which- have
disfigured the conflict over Biafra"
and urged the protagonists "to
transfer the conflict from the bat-
tlefield to the conference table and
seek a peaceful solution to their
difficulties."
The top leaders of 21 major U.S.
Jewish religious, communal, relief
and philanthropic bodies are co-
operating with Catholic Relief Ser-
vices, Church World Service, and
the United States Committee for
UNICEF, all of which have dis-
tribution centers that get food and
medicine through to the sick and
starving.
The announcement was made
simultaneously with the appear-
ance of a seven-column adver-
tisement in the New York Times
announcing the formation of the
group and an appeal for funds.
The signatories for the advertise-
ment stressed the need for Am-'
mericans of all faiths to aid the
starving people in Biafra. "Air-
lifts of food and medicine are
possible but exeremely expen-
sive," they added. "This is a race
with death. Millions will die if
food and medicine do not get
through."
Conservative and Reform Jews
throughout the nation were urged
by their leaders to contribute ma-
terial and financial support to al-
leviate the suffering of the people
in the break-away eastern province
of Nigeria.
Henry N. Rapaport of Scarsdale,
president of the United Synagogue
of America, called on the members
of its 825 affiliated Conservative
congregations to join with others
of all faiths to aid the Biafran vic-
tims. "As a religious organization
we are not concerned with any po-
litical factors but entirely for hu-
manitarian considerations. We can-
not remain silent and neutral," he
said.
Rabbi Levi A. Olan of Dallas,
president of the Central Confer-
ence of American Rabbis, the Re-
form rabbinical group, urged Re-
form rabbis in the U.S. and Canada
to Mobilize their congregations for
immediate funds "to be used to
buy relief for the stricken refu-
gees" of Biafra. "We join all hu-
manitarians whose conscience has
been aroused by the desperate situ-
ation in Biafra," he said.
Leaders representing the three
major religious bodies in the
United States met with Secretary
of State Dean Rusk for more
than an hour and a half to ex-
press their concern about provid-
ing needed relief shipments to
Biafra.
After conferring with Rusk,
members of the Ad Hoc Interfaith
Committee for Biafran Relief
pledged continuing and active liai-
son with one another and appro-
priate federal agencies. In their
comments to Secretary Rusk, the
delegation noted that "strong sup-
port has developed among their
respective memberships for quick
and generous actions on behalf of
Biafrans."
The delegation urged that the
United States use its "political
and moral strength to achieve
settlement between the Federal
State of Nigeria and Biafra for the
expeditious shipment of relief sup-
plies to those in need."
The delegation Included Morris
B. Abram ; president of the Ameri-
