White House Aide Te!ls Attitude:
Jewish Vote Is Not Written Off

Kenneth Bronson, president of
the Washtenaw County Jewish
Community Council, has just re-

received from the White House

attitude on Israel, the Jewish peo-
ple and the voters' status in this
In one of the frankest messages
ever written regarding the role of
the Jewish community, the mes-

ministration is "writing off the
Jewish vote."

IA rote:

ter has somewhat clarified the
misimpressions that the media
have created.
I would like to assure you that
this administration is by no
means "writing off the Jewish
vote," as you put it. Any mem-
ber of the press who makes
such a charge is totally irrespon-
sible and doing a great disservice
to the administration and to the
American people.
Again, I would like to thank
you for having taken the time to
write to the President, and on his
behalf I would like to assure
you of his appreciation.

The demonstration at West-

the Westchester Board of Rabbis
and supported by major Jewish
organizations in the area. It was
termed a "very defiinte success"
by Rabbi Ludwig Madelmann,
chairman of the Westchester
Board of Rabbis. "It exceeded
all our expectations," he told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency. The
demonstrators carried picket
