NEW YORK. (JTA)—The spiri-
tual values of the Jewish holidays
are depicted in montage and paint-
ings by seven artists that will be
exhibited to the public until Oct.

Manhattan. The exhibit was com-
missioned by Sam Sobel, founder

fighting broke out last week.
Although he declined to specify
whether the U.S. might supply
more jet fighters, he noted that
the U.S.. had previously supplied
Jordan with F-104 jets.
Packard, in his interview with
newsmen, also stated that "cheat.
ing" by the Soviet Union along
the Suez Canal during the cease
fire, which involved movement of
missiles in the -stand still zone,
called for a reappraisal of Soviet
intentions that could affect other
potential agreements.
"If you can't have an agreement
where people go ahead in good
faith, it raises questions whether
you can have an agreement on
anything else," he said.
Packard also noted that Israel's
massing of strong armored forces
near the Jordan-Syria border has

West Bank Arabs, who made no

He said it was his opinion
that Israel would welcome a
strengthening of Jordan's defen-
sive powers since it is is in Is-
rael's interest to have a "stable
country on that side of the line."
Packard expressed criticism of
U.S. allies in Europe for failing
to help police Middle East affairs.
"The Middle East and its oil is
much more important to Europe
than it is to us," he asserted.
He said he personally supported
a proposal made recently in a
Chicago newspaper to let NATO
have a role in policing the Middle
East but doubted this proposal
would find much support.
