Most Diaspora Youth

Mordechai Bar-On, head of the

Speaking of the Jewish in-
volvement of youth in Latin
America, Danni Neuman, of
Uruguay said, "If I was to de-
scribe it by colors, I -would say
it is dark gray or even black."
According to Neuman, Jewish
youngsters in Latin America
seek material success and are
encouraged by their parents who
wish to see them well off and
lay aside Jewishness.
Mark Rosenstein, of the North

American Jewish Youth Council,
spoke of large numbers of Jewish
college and university youth who
join anti-Israel and anti-Jewish
groups on the campus. He said he
saw "light," however, in the Zion-
ist youth movements "whose goal
is aliya."
Dr. Nahum Goldmann, presi-
dent of the World Jewish Congress
suggested that a special center be
established through the Memorial
Fund for Jewish Culture at which
intellectuals, youth leaders and
teachers could hold dialogues on
the problem.

Eisendrath Relates Fear
That Dr. King's Dream
Turned Into a Nightmare

NEW YORK (JTA) — A leader
of American Reform Judaism said
that he had "a nightmare that
the dream of Martin Luther King
was a vanishing vision."
Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath,
president of the Union of Ameri-
can Hebrew Congregations, spoke
at special memorial services
marking the birthday of the late
Negro civil rights leader. He said
his remarks were inspired by Dr.
King's renowned "I Have A
Dream" speech which he delivered
at the march on Washington in
The services were held at the
House of Living Judaism, UAHC
headquarters, on the occasion of
Martin Luther King Jr. Day in
New York.

"I have a nightmare of an
America whose areas of division
are not designed by nature's ma-
jestic mountains and coursing
rivers but by the inhumanity of
man that separates white from
black, affluent from the poor,
old from the young," Dr. Eisen-
drath declared.

"I have a nightmare of an Am-
erica more distressed by tranquil-
ity disturbed than by justice de-
nied; by an America that hears
not the pathetic cries of the hun-
gry, the pained, the homeless ...
I have a nightmare of an Ameri-
ca where an elected leader would
stifle the voice of public dissent
and curb the critical expression
of a press whose freedom was
guaranteed by our founding fathers
. . Of an America whose con-
science becomes paralyzed before
the sight and sound of unconscion-
able wars . . . in which industrial
greed for riches from Arabian oil
supersedes concern for the tiny
democracy of Israel, struggling
valiantly to survive.
"I have a nightmare," Dr. Ei-
sendrath said, "of a world that
has defiled the dreams of dream-
ers who sought to inspire brother
to embrace brother; to inspire the
strong to assist the weak; to im-

Ruins of 70 CE
Dug in Old City

JERUSALEM—The ruins Of a
building destroyed by the Romans
in 70 CE were discovered last Fri-
day by archeologist Prof. Nahum
Avigad of Hebrew University, who
said this was the first evidence of
the destruction that accompanied
the razing of the Second Temple.
The ruins, uncovered in the Jew-
ish Quarter of the Old City of
Jerusalem, included two rooms,
both of which apparently had been
used as workshops—one with two
ovens, finely carved stone jars
and other objects that had been
delicately carved.

Prof. Avigad said the room
must have been used as a pharm-
acy, which handled everything
from cosmetics to more common
products. He said evidence of
intense heat was everywhere.
