On the festival of Passover, we are able draw upon many sources for sacred
commands to all men to be compassionate. From talmudic lore we quote these two:
In the night when Israel crossed the Red Sea, the angels desired to sing a
song before God, but the Holy One, Blessed be He, forbade it. He said to them: "The
Egyptian legions are in distress, and you would sing a song in My presence."
Deut. Rabbah, 2:14
A man must share the troubles of his community, even as Moses did. He who
shares in its troubles is worthy to see its consolation.

Workers to Rally April 13
Following the opening last week of the 1969 Allied Jew-
ish Campaign-Israel Emergency Fund and its history-making
announcement of pre-campaign generosity, volunteer workers
have begun a concerted effort to set a new mark for the com-
pleted drive for the Victory Dinner on May 7.
Maxwell Jospey, campaign chairman, said that division
leaders were redoubling efforts to secure pledges from people
whom they had not yet reached and urge those who have
delayed making their commitments to do so now.
The first report rally for workers will be held 10:15 a.m.
April 13, at the Jewish Center. Paul Broder, chairman of the
trades and profesions divisions, has announced.
Edward Klein, one of the three authors of "If Israel Lost
the War" a current best seller which outlines the nightmare
of a defeated Israel, will speak to the workers. Klein is a
writer on the staff of Newsweek and did considerable research
for the background of the novel.
Invitations to the report rally have already been mailed
to solicitors, and returns indicate an enthusiastic response and
a desire on the part of workers to push the 1969 campaign

An informal United States proposal for a solution that is to include approval of unification
of Jerusalem under Israeli rule became known this week, as the Big Four powers were pre-
paring for discussions to assist in assuring peace in the Middle East.
Amidst such discussions Israel reaffirmed its opposition to any attempt to impose peace
on the area, and the Israel cabinet declared that only direct talks between Israel and her Arab
neighbors can lead in any way towards an end to the conflict and the creation of an atmosphere
The Israel government rejected outright a United States proposal for a Middle East
settlement based on the United Nations Security Council's Nov. 22, 1967, resolution and again
turned down the principle of Big Four intervention in the conflict. A statement of policy read
by Premier Golda Meir after Sunday's cabinet meeting declared that "Israel is not and will not

Nixon and Shazar Confer at the White House
By MILTON FRIEDMAN
STA and Jewish News Washington Correspondent
WASHINGTON — President Zalman Shazar of Israel met with President Nixon Monday night
at the White House for 20 minutes at the invitation of the President and restated Israel's position on
peace and Four Power talks. The meeting took place immediately after a reception tendered by the
White House for heads of state here for funeral services honoring former President Dwight D. Eisen-
At the reception Mr. Nixon told Shazar that he would like him to remain for private discus.
sions. The subsequent meeting included Shazar, Mr. Nixon and Henry Kissinger, the President's top
adviser on national security affairs.
After the meeting, Shazar said that he restated Israel's known position on peace. Since Mr.
Nixon had met earlier in the day with President Charles de Gualle of France and had discussed the
Mid East situation, it is believed the Nixon-Shazar exchange involved the Four Power concept.
It was learned that Shazar emphasized to Mr. Nixon Israel's desire for peace and belief in peace.
He stressed there could be no backward movement but events must move forward to peace.
He reiterated Israel's position on conditions essential for real peace. Israeli sources described
the atmosphere of the meeting as "friendly and warmly cordial."
