on the planned low-income hous-
ing project in Forest. Hills, Queens,
which has engendered h e a t e d
argument following objections by
middle-class whites who deny they
are racially motivated.
Meanwhile, at Grossinger, N.Y.,
the Anti-Defamation League came
out unequivocally in favor of the
project as a means of achieving
integration.
The ADL, in a statement by
Lawrenle Peirez, chairman of
the fact-finding committee, ex-
pressed the ADL's "overwhelm-
ing support" for the Forest

,

Mils project. Peirez charged
that its -opponents "have been
agitated out of all proportion into
baseless fears that their neigh-
borhoods -will be destroyed."

.Dr. Abraham Joshua Ileschel,
the theologian, told the ADL's
58th annual meeting that the hous-
ing project "was mishandled by
the city administration," which
"showed a complete lack of under-
standing and bungled the situa-
tion."
The educator added that while
American Jewry must be active
in the civil rights fight, it was
not its responsibility to "take the
lead." Most of. Forest Hills' pop-
ulation is Jewish.
Also, 16 - community organiza-
tions of Queens and Long Island,
led by Rabbi I. Usher Kirshblum,
past president of the Queens Rab-
binical Assembly, endorsed the
housing project as "a moral issue"
that should not be "decided by a
majority or minority vote."

famous rabbis, sages, writers and

public fignres, ripiUdink Rabbi
