JERUSALEM—The new Jeru-
salem YM and YWHA was hailed
as a bridge between the Jewish
communities of Israel and North
America by Israel's president, Zal-
man Shazar, in an address dur-
ing the three-day ceremonies
marking the dedication of its new
$1,100,000 buildings.
Addressing Jewish center and
YM-YWHA leaders from Israel,
the United States and Canada at
a reception in his home, President
Shazar said that the Jerusalem
YM and YWHA will bring three-
' fold benefits to Israel—heightened
service to youth, service to Jeru-
salem as the spiritual capital of
world Jewry.
The YM and YWHA was erected
with funds raised by the World
, Federation of YMHAs and Jewish
Centers, of which the National

Lest I Forget Some of My Best Friends,

I am taking this means to
wish the entire Jewish Community
of Detroit.

A year of G-d's
blessing for health,
peace and contentment.

Israel will honor "Tabira" the National Philatelic Exhibition in
Jerusalem, by issuing a stamp and a souvenir sheet Oct. 8. Featured
on the stamp will be details from the Lion's Gate in Jerusalem's Old
City Wall. The souvenir sheet (top) will show the Lion's Gate itself
and will picture the stamp in the right half of the sheet. (See detail
lower right). The "Lion's Gate" is derived from two pairs of stone
lions who guard each side of the entrance. Among the Arabs the
gate is known as "Gate of the Lady Mary," from the belief that the
mother of Jesus was born nearby. Christians call it "St. Stephen's
Gate" in honor of the first Christian martyr, who passed' through it
on the way to his death. Abraham Mapu, one of the greatest Zionist
novelists and historians of the 19 Century, is commemorated on an-
other stamp (lower left) to be issued Oct. 8 by Israel. Born in 1808,
Mapu stunned literary circles in 1853 with a novel called "Love of
Zion," an epic story set against the background of Israel and its
glory during the period of the First Temple. The book was trans-
lated into English, French, Russian, Yiddish, Ladino and Arabic.
In a short time he became the most prominent of a circle of learned
Lithuanian Jews, winning acclaim for his ability to endow modern
Hebrew literature with the language and spirit of the Bible. In
1867, he left his native Lithuania for Germany in search of a cure
for his illness. Ile died there the same year.

Lord Russell Fears Russians Want
Doctors' Trial' for 2 Jews in Prague

bisONDON (JTA) — The British
philosopher Bertrand Russell said
in a letter to the London Times
Monday that he had confirmation
of Soviet demands that Czecho-
slovakia stage anti-Semitic "show
trials" along the lines of the
"Doctors' Plot" trials in the ,
USSR during the Stalin era.
Lord Russell, who has frequently
defended Soviet policies in the
past, said the Russians want the
trials in order to conceal the lack
of support for their intervention in
Czechoslovakia and to divert the
anger of the people in Czechoslo-
vakia and board. He appealed to
Communists and Socialists all over
the ,world to "resolutely oppose
these demands."
Lord Russell said that the Rus-
sians wanted to put two prominent
Czechoslovak Jews on trial—Fran-
tisek K r i e g e 1, an associate of
Czecholovak Communist
Alexander Dubcek, and Dr. Edu-
of the
Czechoslovak Writers Union. Dr.
GoldstetIcker is reported have left
Czechoslovakia following the oc-
The famed philosopher noted
Ms letter that he had been critic.
ized as an alarmist when he ap-
pealed to Soviet Premier Alexei
Kosygin last July 21 to declare
publicly that the Soviet Union
had no intention of using mili-
tary force in Czechoslovakia.
Now, he said, "I have good rea-
son to confirm, because I have it
on excellent authority that the So-
viet Union, in its determination to
stop reforms and to-hide its lack of

support by diverting the anger of
the people both in Czechoslovakia
and abroad, is pressing for a trial
in the classic Stalinist tradition of
the 'Doctor's Plot.' I appeal with
the gravity at my command to So-
cialists and Communists through-
out the world to resolutely oppose
these Soviet demands."
Meanwhile, the Polish Com-
munist official generally_regarded
as the main force behind The War-
saw regime's "anti-Zionist" cam-
paign last spring has renewed his
attack on "Zionists" to justify Po-
land's participation in the Soviet-
led invasion of Czechoslovakia.
Gen. Mieczyslaw Moczar, former
minister of interior a n d now a
deputy member of the ruling Polit-
buro, Sunday denounced the "per-
fidious call for humanization and
democratization" in Czechoslovakia
launched by "imperialists, revi-
sionists and Zionists."

BUENOS AIRES—The people of
Argentina have an opportunity to
learn about Israel as their fellow
countrymen see it through a new
book, "Israel Seen Through Argen-
tinian Eyes on its 20th anniver-
The 265-page work is composed
of articles by mainly non-Jewish
Argentinian experts in several
fields who have been to Israel.
The book was published by the
Instituto Judio Argentino de Cul-
tura e Informacion (Jewish-Argen-
