Vatican Document on Jews Not Final ;
Significant Changes in Wording Hinted

NEW YORK (JTA) — The Syn-
agogue Council of America has re-
ported that the new Vatican docu-
ment on Catholic-Jewish relations,
which was widely hailed by Jewish
organizations last week as a mile-
stone, was not the final text.
The council said it would not
issue any statement on the docu-
ment for that reason. The decision
was taken unanimously by its
commission on interreligious af-
fairs after a meeting to study the
document, according to Rabbi
Fabian Schonfeld, commission
chairman.
The Synagogue Council is the
representative organization of the
lay and rabbinic branches of Re-
form, Conservative and Orthodox
Judaism. Informed sources inti-
mated that there were changes in
the final text, some of them "very
significant."
The Vatican document, which
proposed what were described
as "unprecedented steps" to im-
prove Catholic-Jewish relations,
was revealed Dec. 10 by Law-
rence Cardinal Shehan, arch-

bishop of Baltimore, at a Loyola
College seminar on the image of
the Jew in contemporary cul-
ture. The seminar was sponsored
by the Bnai Brith's Anti-Defa-
mation League and various
Christian institutions.
An ADL spokesman has told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
Cardinal Shehan had made it clear
that the document he released was
a "working paper" of the Vatican
Secretariat on Christian Unity and
not the final version. However, he
said, the final text is "very likely"
to contain no significant changes.
Rabbi Marc Tannenbaum, direct-
or of the American Jewish Com-
mittee's interreligious affairs de-
partment, told the Jewish Telegra-
phic Agency that .he has been in
touch with . members of the Na-
tional Conference of Bishops who
were in Rome when the final text
was drafted.
He said that, according to his
informants, the final text adhers
closely to the working paper ex-

settle in 1967, 39 Chicago Blacks
were settled in an immigrant vil-

permission to remain three months

During that period, the govern-

decide whether to admit them to
Israel as Jews, as they claim
they are.

JERUSALEM (JTA) —The Knes-
set voted unanimously Tuesday to
extend the age of eligibility for
military draft to persons age 45-54..
The bill, which passed its first
reading, also extended the validity
of emergency regulations govern-
ing draft age to the end of 1970.
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan
said the older age group would
serve in civil defense and that the
bill was intended primarily to
strengthen the civil defense corps.
The Knesset also unanimously
approved a measure to increase
the national budget by $21,500,000
through defense loan sales abroad.

cept for some modifications of
language which were not signifi-
cant enough to cause concern.
Rabbi Tannenbaum said, however,
that he "shared the hesitation" of
the Synagogue Council until the
final langauge was available.
The Synagogue Council stated
after Cardinal Shehan's announce-
ment in Baltimore that a docu-
ment of such "far-reaching conse-
quences . . . should not elicit a
quick and easy response" but
promised to give it "the most
careful and respectful study."
According to Rabbi Tannen-
baumi the final text will be re-
leased shortly by the Vatican. He
said that the Church originally in-
tended to release it some time in
January but an earlier release
date was set in order to forestall
pressure for changes from the
more conservative members of the
Catholic Curig and from Arab
bishops who object to the docu-
ment's injunction to Catholics to
understand Jewish ties to Israel.
