.Over_the past few years, thousands of 'Jews, par-

Synagogue at the _ time of Simhat Torah, often in
defiance of Soviet -authorities. :The event has come
to symbolize Russian-Jewry:a. determination to carry
on their protest efforts against Soviet repression of
Jewish-spiritual and cultural life.
More recently, attention has focused on the many
thOusands• of--Jews who have expressed a desire to
emigrate from the Soviet Union. (Detailed stories on

Mubarak al • Khalifah, minister for
foreign affairs of Bahrain, told the Gen-
eral Assembly, as he took his seat, that
his country would strengthen ties with
"all its sister Arab states," and added
that Bahrain would support the demands
of the people of Palestine and the de-
mands of Syria, Egypt and Jordan for

what he termed the restoration of their
occupied territories.

Hassan Hamel, minister of state and
adviser to the government of Qatar,
told the assembly that, as an Arab state,
Qatar shared the concern of Arabs about
the "violation of the rights of the Arab
people of Palestine" and the refusal of
the "violator" to carry out United .
Nations decisions.

le Youth Excavate 5th Century Byzantine Synagogue Mosaic Floor

NEW YORK, N. Y.—An ancient Byzantine mosaic floor of a synagogue dating to the 5th Century has
been excavated by members of the National Federation of Temple Youth; and confirms for the first time that
Jews lived inside the city of Bet She'an during pagan times.
The mosaic floor, approximately 15X20 ft., contains -a seven-branch menora with the Hebrew inscription
"shalom" (peace) over it. Also found were decorations of animals and fruits such as a rani, peacocks drinking
from a fountain, a moiler, an elephant, a donkey, grapes, pomegranates and bananas.
According to Prof. Dan- Bahat of the department of antiquities, although 68 synagogues have been discov-
ered throughout Israel, this is the first time that a menora has - been found bearing the word "shalom."
For the past month, 160 teen-agers from Reform Jewish congregations in the United States and Canada
participated in a special archeologleal program developed in cooperation with the NFTY and the department of
agiquitieri Of the government of Israel, at a "dig" in. Bet She'an located near the Israeli-Jordanian border. Jill
POPtlan of Southfield was one of the participants in-the dig. _
ArrangeMents - were concluded between Rabbi Stephen A. Schafer, director of the division of youth
activities, Union of American Hebrew Congregations, and Dr. Avram Direst, director of Israel's department of
antiquities, providing the opportunity_for- Reform Jewish young people twice a year, for one month in the winter
and summer," to participate in an archeological study and excavation program.
Itabbi.Schafer observed that the program "gives young people an esthetic experience and, at the same time
provides- the stdritssat feeling of the continuity of Jewish history."-
.. The project was _supervised by Shimon Chasdi, director of overseas projects -for NFTY; Dr. Biran and
