Allyn, Zionist Identification, Aid to USSR Jewry
Declared Priorities of New American Federation

By Jewish News
Special Correspondent
NEW YORK—Steps were taken
last weekend, at the first meeting
of the national executive board of
the newly-formed American Zionist
Federation, which coordinates the
activities of all Zionist movements
in the country, to increase Aliya
efforts, to enlist for Zionist iden-
tification the masses of American
Jews and to coordinate efforts to
seek relief from discrimination for
Russian Jewry.
The 200 members of the national
board, representing many states,
participated in two days of dis-
cussions of various problems af-
fecting the Zionist movement and
world Jewry.
Jacques Torczyner, chairman of
the national AZF board, presided
at the sessions and principal
addresses were delivered by the
AZF president, Rabbi Israel
Willer, and by Nehemiah Leva-
non, director of the department
of East European Jewry of the
Israel Foreign Ministry.
Other participants in the sessions
included three Israelis who repre-
sented their country at the United
Nations — Aharon Becker, Moshe
Carmel and Prof. Hans Klinghof-
fer; as well as Rabbi Herschel
Schacter, Richard Yaffe, Raymond
M. Patt, Charles Bick, Daniel
Mann, Dr. Avraham Soltes, Harry
Steinberg, Hy Faille, Mrs. Eli Res-
nikoff, Martin Markson, Mel Klar-
feld and Mrs. Olga Rachmilevitch.
Rabbi Miller predicted that the
federation, established six months
ago as the central voice of Zionism
in the United States, would shortly
have units in 20 major American
cities.
He reported that the units have
already been set up in six cities—
Chicago, Cleveland, Miami, Phila-
delphia, Pittsburgh and Rochester
—and local groups are about set
in four others—Los Angeles, San
Francisco, Detroit, Atlanta and
Cincinnati.
In his keynote address, Rabbi
Miller said the federation's or-
ganizational growth is the answer
to those "who maliciously, wilfully
or through ignorance reject the
basic concepts" upon which Zion-
ism is based. "We proudly pro-
claim our Zionist affiliation and
joyfully take our places in the long
line of immortals from the proph-
ets to the martyrs cut down by
the bullets of terrorists. By our
enemies shall ye know us," he
declared.
Rabbi Miller specifically scorned
the "ignorant self-hating Jews who
mouth the canards of the New Left
and who joined the venom brigade
of spokesmen for the Black Pan-
thers and Arab terrorists." These
Jewish maligners of Zionism, he
said, "are destroying themselves
spiritually and culturally. They
are sowing the seeds of anti-Semi-
tic hatred under the false facade
of anti-Zionism."
The Soviet Union's anti-Jewish
effort centers on an anti-Israel
policy throughout the world, Rabbi
Miller said. But, he warned, "what
is involved in the Middle East is
not merely the fate of Israel, but
the fate of the entire free world.
The confrontation today has been
broadened and deepened. It is no
longer simply stated as a battle
in which the Arab states wish to
destroy Israel. The adversaries are
allied with an expansionist Soviet
Union against a small nation
valiantly fighting not only for its
own life, but for the concepts of
freedom and liberty to which the
United States and all-Aemocratic
countries are committed."
Carmel, a member of the Knes-
set's foreign affairs and defense
committee, and his colleagues,
Becker and Klinghoffer, sharply
questioned the sincerity of Egyp-
tian and Soviet intentions toward
peace in the Middle East but
said that peace will come to the
region in the long run if the
United States backs up Israel
and maintains its military

sire:mph.

peace is achieved, "Israel prefers
security without peace to peace
without security." The three ICnes-
set members are parliamentary
advisors to the Israeli Mission to
the United Nations.
Klinghoffer, a leader of Gahal,
an opposition faction in the Knesset
since it quit the coalition govern-
ment last July, said that the cur-
rent "cease fire could have served
the purpose of creating new hopes
for the establishment of peace"
but "was misused by Egypt and
Russia." Furthermore, he noted,
the Arab-Soviet move to force a
Mid East dispute in the General
Assembly also demonstrated a
lack of interest in achieving peace.
Becker, a member of the foreign
affairs and defense committee, de-
clared that the new Soviet mis-
sile sin the truce zone were a
more realistic indicator of the
Kremlin's intentions than all the
speeches of Soviet Foreign Minis
ter Andrei Gromyko at the UN.
The federation launched a
nationwide campaign to register
1,000,000 American Jews as mem-
bers of the American Zionist
movement.
At the same time, the organi-
zation mapped an intensive infor-
mational and educational program
to acquaint American Jews with
opportunities for aliya.
The two programs will be spear-
headed by the local Zionist federa-
tions already functioning in 11 ma-
jor American cities and the 20
more local groups due to be in

Particular emphasis will be
placed on expanding informational
outlets for news of Zionist federa-
tion activities and on efforts to
counter growing anti-Israel and
anti-Zionist propaganda from the
"Palestinians" and New Left
groups.
Local drives will be directed
toward Jews in newer and smaller
communities, people who have
visited Israel or studied there,
members of synagogues and fra-
ternal orders and chapters of non-
Zionist Jewish organizations. Many
synagogues, fraternal orders and
non-Zionist Jewish groups have
already affiliated with the AZF on
a "corporate" or group basis. A
special effort will be made to en-
roll youth.
