U. S. Synagogues Adopt Rule Compelling
Members to Become Donors to UJA

NEW YORK (JTA) — More than
20 congregations in communities
all over the United States have
joined in a move to require con-
tributions to the United Jewish
Appeal as a prerequisite for mem-
bership, it was disclosed Tuesday
by Rabbi Earl Jordan, director
of the UJA Rabbinical Advisory
Council. Rabbi Jordan said the
boards of rabbis in Cleveland,
Kansas City and St. Louis have
adopted resolutions advocating the
same practice.

Terrorists Fire
on Settlement
From Lebanon

in Lebanon fired mortars at
Avivim settlement in Upper Galilee
Sunday night. The shelling caused
no casualties but sparked an alert
all along the Lebanese border re-
gion, where Palestinian terrorists
are active 'orke more. •
The settlement was the scene
last May of a terrorist attack on
a school bus in which eight school
children and four adults were
killed and 21 other passengers
were wounded.
According to Israeli sources, the
fedayeen are meeting resistance
from the local population, which
wants no repetition of last spring's
situation when their villages were
caught between guerrilla fire and
Israeli retaliatory action.
Fedayeen trying to find shelter
in Lebanese border villages for
the winter are being kept out by
road blacks, and several armed
clashes have already taken
place, the Israeli sources re-
The villagers have sent delega-
tions to the authorities in Beirut
asking protection from the guer-
Israeli authorities have detained
about 70 terrorist suspects on the
West Bank in recent weeks, it
was disclosed. Fifty are from
Nablus and the rest from Hebron.
They all are believed to be mem-
bers of various terrorist cells and
to have engaged in sabotage ac-
tivities. Several have admitted
throwing hand grenades in Nablus.
According to the authorities, a
number of the Nablus suspects are
students belonging to prominent
Arab families.
Five Israeli border policemen
were injured Sunday morning when
their vehicle was hit by bazooka
shells fired from the Lebanese
border north of Shetula in Upper
Galilee. The incident was the first
in several weeks along the
Lebanese frontier
A local resident was injured and
three Israeli soldiers sustained
minor scratches when a hand
grenade exploded in the Jabaliya
quarter of Gaza. Several suspects
have been detained for questioning.
Some 1,8•O Palestinian guer-
rillas from Syria were reported
to have entered Jordan last week
as Iraqi troops, stationed in
Jordan since the Jane 111117 Arab.
Israeli war, were pulled out.
There was no apparent connec-
tion between the two movements.
The guerrillas are members of
the Syrian-backed Al Saiga, which
has reportedly been under pres-
sure since the Syrian defense
minister, Gen. Hafaz Assad, seized
control in Damascus.
There are altogether about 20,000
Al Saiga members in Syria, and
the new regime in Damascus is
said to want to get rid of them.
They are seeking refuge in north-
ern Jordan and southern Lebanon.
Jordanian troops were reported-
ly supervising the Iraqi withdrawal
and making sure that they did
not crate Jordanian equipment and
take it along with them.

feel so good as the idea that some-
one else is an evildoer.—Robert

Rabbi Jordan said the first con-
gregation to take this step was
Beth Jacob of Los Angeles where
its rabbi, Simon Dolgin, found
that 130 of the 500 member fam-
ilies had not made contributions
to the UJA. After instituting the
mandatory contributions require-
ment, 128 of the families submit-
ted checks, Rabbi Jordan reported.

Israel Remains Strong,
Comay Assures Britons

LONDON (JTA) — Israel's am-
bassador to Britain and its interior
minister spoke Monday of their
country's resolve to remain strong
in the face of Arab and Soviet
threats until a genuine peace in
the Middle East is achieved.
Ambassador Michael Comay and
Dr. Joseph Burg addressed, the
opening meeting of a membership
campaign conducted by the
Mizrashi Federation of Great
Dr. Burg said, "We are harder
now and we are more resolved
not to become the subject of
eulogies, like Biafra has become.
We depend on ourselves and we
know that only a strong Israel will
obtain a just peace."

one of the first six congregations
in the U.S. to initiate the manda-
tory contributions practice. A reso-
lution issued by Rabbi Mayer
Abramowitz and temple officials
requires all members to contribute
to the Greater Miami Jewish Fed-
eration's Combined Jewish Appeal
and Israel Emergency Fund cam-
Others include Temple Sinai of
Los Angeles (Rabbi Hillel Silver-
man); Cong. Ezra (Rabbi Ira
Sud) and the K.A.M. Congregation
(Rabbi Simeon Maslin), both of
Chicago; and Cong. Agudath
Sholom (Rabbi Joseph Ehrenk-
ranz), Stamford, Conn.
Rabbi Jordan said that no min-
imum contribution is being pro-
posed by the UJA, the boards of
rabbis or the synagogues. The act
of giving is considered more im
portant than the size of the con-
tribution, he said.
