2 Suez Fatalities Mar Holiday

TEL AVIV (JTA) — The first
fatalities suffered by Israel sol-
diers in the Suez Canal zone since
the cease fire went into effect
Aug. 7 were disclosed Sunday.
Lieutenants Mordechai Segal, 22.
of Kibbutz Amir and Michael
Molitov, 23, of Haifa, were killed
when their jeep hit a mine about
two kilometers east of the water-
way in the central sector of the
canal zone.
Military authorities are investi-
gating to determine whether the
mine was an old one or one that
was planted after the truce began.
There were two incidents along
the Lebanese border, compared
with one the previous week, and
six in the Gaza Strip, down from
Israeli authorities are alert, how-
ever, to possible trouble stemming
from the Jordanian government's
granting of border enclaves to Pal-
estinian commandos.
Such an enclave appears to exist
already in the Irbid area, where
the government's army seems to
have very little control. That en-
clave is opposite the Israeli settle-
ments in the Beisan and Jordan
Many thousands of Israelis took
advantage of the three-day holiday
and exceptionally fine weather to

drive to Galilee, the Golan Heights
and the Beisan Valley.
There were many worshipers at
the Wailing Wall and synagogues
in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv were
reported crowded.
Hotels in the cities and in re-
sort areas turned some of their
public rooms into ad hoc syna-
gogues to accommodate Israelis
and tourists.
In East Jerusalem, an esti-
mated 20,000 Arabs mourning
President Gamal Abdel Nassar,
of Egypt, marched to the Mos-
que of Omar and an adjacent
cemetery for memorial services.
Israeli police were on hand in
force but kept to the background.
Authorities said the marchers ob-
served exemplary decorum and no
incidents occurred.
However, minor incidents were
reported during marches of Chris-
tian Arab youths to memorial
ceremonies in Nazareth and Acre.
Israel's Sephardic chief rabbi,
Itzhak Nissim reported that he had
a letter from Rabbi David Isaac
of Leningrad expressing hope that
he and his wife would be able
to go to Israel next spring, right
after the Shavuot holiday. "Our
prayers have not been answered
yet and we are still here. Who
knows when we will be able to
join you?" the letter said.

Shaarey Zedek USY has been

viet Jewry. BBYO, at its June dis-
trict meeting, voted to make this
issue its action project, and is
directing its programing toward
Soviet Jewry.
The groups are planning to par-

BBYO planning a performance at
the Tel-12 Mall and Shaarey

ping malls.

plans through Project Outcry 1970
