Population Study Started
in Cleveland, Cincinnati

NEW YORK (JTA) — The first
National Jewish Population Study
of American Jewry has been
launched with the start of inter-
views in Cincinnati and Cleveland,
the Council of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds has reported.
The data will be sought for a com-
prehensive picture of many as-
pects of Jewish life to replace
guess with fact, as a basis for
planing and financing at local,
regional and national levels, the
CJF said.
Some 10,000 Jewish households
will be reached in the survey to
provide information on a wide
range of questions on attitudes, as
well as factual data.
The study is being directed by
Dr. Fred Massarik, director of the
research service bureau of the
Los Angeles Federation-Council.

Rabbi Harold Saperstein, spiri-
tual leader of Temple Emanu.E1,
Lynbrook. L. I., was elected

president of the New York Board
of Rabbis at the board's 89th an-

nual meeting. The board includes
more than 900 Orthodox, Conser-
vative and Reform rabbis and is
the world's largest representa-
tive rabbinic body.

Right-Wing Isolationist
Urges Senate to Reject
Genocide Convention

TEL AVIV—"Public Relations—
Bridge to International Relations"
is the theme of the fifth Public
Relations World Congress to be
held here May 31-June 6.
The host committee has planned
a program to focus on the impact
of public relations on the planning
of developed and developing na-

public relations development in
modern society.

Nixon signed a foreign aid bill
which includes a $20,000,000 grant
to Israel for a desalination pro-
gram and grants for other projects
and institutions in Israel.
The grant was advocated in the
Senate by Sen. Gaylord Nelson of
Wisconsin and in the House by
joint Democratic-Republican spon-
sorship. The concept behind the
desalting grant is that Israeli ex-
pertise would be made available
to other nations with similar prob-
lems involving water.
Israeli institutions which will
benefit from the grant include

Israeli Cities Face Money Dilemma

municipalities are facing a prob-
lem that besets many a city in the
United States—rising costs and a
limited ability to tax.
A meeting of government, labor
and management leaders under the
chairmanship of Finance Minister
Pinhas Sapir, decided Tuesday
night that municipal taxes should
not be raised. As a result, many
local development projects will
have to be curtailed or abandoned.
Higher municipal taxes were re-
jected on grounds that they would
difigure the "package deal" work-
ed out between the government,
employers and trade unions to
fight inflation. The government
agreed not to raise national levies
as sharply as had been expected
in return for pledges to keep down
prices and wage demands.. But as
far as the cities are concerned,
Sapir said they would have to solve
their problems alone, possibly with
some help from the treasury.
