JERUSALEM (JTA) — A report
attributed to Dr. Nahum Goldmann
saying that Premier Golda Meir
had responded favorably to a pro-
posal to create a permanent
framework for consultations be-
tween Israel government leaders
and leaders of Diaspora Jewry
was denied by the prime minister's
office.
A spokesman said the re-
port was based on a misunder-
standing. He said the subject of a
permanent consultative body was
not raised during Mrs. Meir's re-
cent talks with Dr. Goldmann and
that consequently the premier
could not have commented on it.
Dr. Goldmann, president of the
World Jewish Congress and for

ist Organization, said in Tel Aviv
that he hoped Mrs. Meir would
follow the policy of the late Pre-
mier Levi Eshkol in consulting
from time to time with world Jew-

Subject of Kit Issued -
by Reform Synagogues

NEW YORK (JTA) — The New
York Federation of Reform Syna-
gogues has embarked on a pro-
gram to provide young men of
draft age with accurate informa-
tion on the Jewish point of view
on war and peace and oh Selective
Service procedures to help them

"reach intelligent decisions regard-
ing their course of action with
respect to the draft."
The information has been assem-
bled in a kit under the heading
"Selective Service and Its Alter-
natives" which the federation has
distributed to 103 Reform synago-
gues in the New York area through
its youth activities department.
The federation stated that it and
its parent body, the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations,
take no official position on the
draft "but seeks to help each young
man to reach his own well-thought-
out position."

The kit outlines the procedure
for programing a conference on
the question and recommends
that presentations be made to
participating young men by a
rabbi, a representative of the
Selective Service System and a
draft counselor, who would an-
swer questions.
The kit also contains relevant
passages from the Bible, the Tal-
mud and other Hebrew sources;

GENEVA — In administering to

the welfare needs of Jews on three
continents, the Joint Distribution
Committee sometimes gets itself
involved in unusual activities. One
such operation was the conversion
of a small ocean of Swiss milk into
a mountain of kosher cheese for
consumption in Jewish schools and
old age homes in Zagreb, Casa-

blanca. Tunis. Tel Aviv, Tehran
and a number of cities in between.
The project began some 10
months ago when the Swiss govern-
ment donated to JDC approximate-
ly 175 tons of powdered milk and
cheese for its feeding programs
and food parcels benefiting close to
60,000 needy Jews in Europe, Israel
and the Moslem countries.
