All Hotels in Israel Filled
to Capacity for Christmas

JERUSALEM (JTA)—All hotels
in Israel's principal cities were
fully booked this week for the
tourists in Israel for the Christ-
mas holidays. This includes the
hotels in East Jerusalem and
• a number of "third class" hostel-
ries which are usually not fre-
I
quented by tourists.
Eighty planes were land-
ing daily at Lydda Airport. A
building for incoming passengers,
recently gutted by fire, has been
reopened. Permits for tourists
wanting to visit Bethlehem were
issued to foreigners who were
not even asked their religion.
However, residents in occupied
Arab areas wanting to visit Beth-
lehem bad to prove they are Chris-
tians before given permits.

NEW YORK—"It is now quite
obvious," stated lecturer Yaffa
Eliach, "that when the Baal
Shem Tov (Besht) introduced the
Hasidic movement into Judaism,
he drew on sources found in little-
known Christian groups that exist-
ed near his home town."
Speaking at Brooklyn College at
a meeting of Yavneh, the national
religious Jewish students associa-
tion, Mrs. Eliach showed the cor-
relation of early Hasidic practices
with those of these communities,
pointing out that similarities ex-
tend even to the social philosophies
of the two groups. She made spec-
ial note of the Besht as a religious
leader and the similar position
held by the local "christs" who
were the spiritual heads of these
Christians.
Mrs. Eliach's article on the
sources of Hasidism will be pub-
lished in the forthcoming issue of
the "Proceedings of the American
Academy for Jewish Research."
Mrs. Eliach feels that her find-
ings help to account for the tre-
mendous opposition heaped upon
Hasidism by the Jewish leaders of
the era, including the Gaon of
Vilno.
"However," she continued, "con-
temporary Hasidism—due largely
to its Habad branch—is a com-
pletely Jewish movement. Its Chris-
tian sources are at most a faint
echo."
Yavneh sponsors lectures and
seminars on Jewish philosophy, his-
tory and Bible on college cam-
puses throughout the United States
and Canada.

200,000 Have Left Israel
Since State Established

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —Some
200,000 people, among them non-
Jews, have left Israel since the
establishment of the state, Eliyahu
Ben-Amrom, director of the demo-
graphic department of the Govern-
ment Bureau of Statistics, said
here.
Ben-Amrom stressed that in
1968 emigration has declined in
comparison with 1967, when the
number of emigrants exceeded the
number of "olim" (immigrants) by
1,000 people monthly.
In 1968, however, aliya at times
exceeded emigration by 500 or
600 immigrants a month. Number
1 on the list of countries preferred
by the "yordim" (emigrants) is
the United States.
Since 1962, 42 per cent of the
Israeli emigrants settled there.
France occupies second place on
the list, with 18 per cent. England,
Germany and Canada absorbed 4
per cent of the yordim; Asian
countries, 4 per cent and South
Africa, 2 per cent. Twenty-five per
cent of the emigrants were born
in Israel. More than half of the
yordim were of European or
American extraction.

Jordan Rules Firm Kosher
for Business; Shuns Small
Detail: Jewish Ownership

LONDON (JTA)—The Times re-
ported that the Alliance Assur-
ance Co., one of the largest British
insurance firms, had been re-
moved by the Jordanian govern-
ment from its lists of enterprises
boycoted for trading with Israel
and cleared for doing business in
Jordan.
The report said that Alliance of-
ficials apparently had convinced
the Jordanian government that the
company has no dealings with Is-
rael.
The Times commented that the
Jordanians apparently had over-
looked the fact that the firm was
founded in 1824 by Sir Moses
Montefiore with the participation of
Nathaniel Meyer Rothschild, the
first Rothschild to establish a
bank in Palestine, and Benjamin
Gompertz, a Sephardic Jew who
was the leading actuary of his
time.
Sir Moses was the company's
first president. The company re-
mains in Jewish hands. Lord Bear-
sted, a member of an established
Anglo-Jewish family is its present
chairman.
