Says Jewish Education
`Too Wrapped Up in Past'

NEW YORK (JTA)—The national
director of Bnai Brith's adult Jew-
ish study program sharply criti-
cized Jewish education for being
"too wrapped up" in what Judaism
and Jewish life were in the past
and not active enough in interpret-
ing the concepts of Judaism so that
individual Jews can find answers
to current social and moral issues.

Mrs. Lily Edelman spoke at the
annual meeting of the Bnai Brith's
commission on adult Jewish educa-
tion. She urged the Jewish com-

Toyn bee-Commended
Book Due; Seen as
Being 'Provocative'

Predicting that it will be "con-
troversial and provocative," Panth-

eon Books this week announced
the publication of "Israel and the
Arabs" by Maxine Rodinson.
The commendation of the book

by Arnold Toynbee, noted for his t
antagonism to Zionism and to Is-

rael, is an indication of what's to
be expected.

Minister Levi Eshkol voiced high

praise for President Lyndon B.
Eshkol disclosed the contents of
farewell messages exchanged be-

tween himself and Johnson.
Eshkol praised Mr. Johnson's
conduct "during the period of
storm and stress, in May and June,
1967" when "the President showed
his understanding of our position
and opposed every attempt to
widen the scope of the dispute be-
yond the Israel-Arab context." He
said that immediately after the
Six-Day War, Mr. Johnson "laid
down the effort to achieve perma-
nent peace in the Middle East as
the foundation of his country's
policy. When peace comes, and I
am convinced it will come," Esh-
kol said, "President Johnson's his-
toric contribution will be appre-
The exchange of notes dealt
mainly with the water desalination
project. Cabinet Secretary Michael
Arnon revealed. He noted that
Johnson's request for an appropri-
ation to cover a large part of Is-
rael's desalitnation needs did not
amount to final approval since the
measure has to pass the Congress
along with the entire budget for
fiscal 1969. It was learned that
U.S. and Israeli negotiators agreed
last summer on a desalination proj-
ect that could yield 40,000,000 gal-
, Ions of desalted water daily—about
5 per cent of Israel's require-
ments—and provide between 200
and 300 megawatts of electric pow-
er. The plan, smaller than one
originally envisaged, would be

aided by a 840,000,000 grant to
Israel and a long-term loan of $18,-
000,000, the terms of which would
be negotiated with America n
banks. The agreement did not spe-

cify the type of fuel to be used in
the desalination plant—nuclear or
conventional — but the loan and
grant were not made conditional
on the choice of fuel. The original
plan envisaged a nuclear reactor
for the plant. The choice of fuel
was up to the Israel government.
Eshkol said that President John-
son understood the need for peace-
ful development of the Middle

East and the supreme importance
of water for that purpose. He said

Mr. Johnson showed great interest

in desalination when he and Mr.
Eshkol first talked in Washington

in 1964 and that they had been in
constant contact on the subject
ever since.

Arab Judge Candidate
for Jerusalem Court

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM —Minister of Jus-

tice Yaacov Shapiro will recom-
mend the appointment of an Arab
judge to the Jerusalem District
Court, it was learned from minis-
try sources Tuesday.
The ministry did not confirm
reports that the candidate selected
was an East Jerusalem lawyer.
Arab lawyers on the West Bank
in East Jerusalem have been on
strike for more than 18 months on
orders from the Jordanian govern-
ment not to practice under Israeli

occupation. Several, however, have
resumed their practice.
