9 Orthodox Organizations Commend Fisher
and CJFWF for Position on Day Schools

Nine national Orthodox Jewish
organizations joined in expressing
their appreciation to the Council
of Jewish Fedetations and Welfare
Funds and to its president, Max
M. Fisher, "for the important
breakthrough with regard to the
Hebrew day school that occurred
at the Pittsburgh General Assem-
bly Nov. 10-14.
In a letter to Fisher, leaders
of the nine organizations com-
mended Fisher and the council for
giving "the day school, which has
successfully reared generations of
committed Jews," high priority in
"two places that really count," in
Fisher's presidential address and
in the resolution on Jewish educa-
tion adopted by the assembly.
In his presidential address,
Fisher stated "There is a grow-
ing feeling in many quarters, and
not just the traditional quarters,
that the Jewish day school holds
one of the best answers to further-
ing Jewish continuity." There is
no question," Fisher continued,

"that Jewish day schools have
earned the right to our most care-
ful consideration of what can be
done to help. If we are serious
about maintaining Jewish continui-
ty—and I know we are—then it is
my feeling that each community
will want to take a fresh look at its
oWn day school situation and see if
it cannot do better."

The convention's resolution on
Jewish education called upon
local federations "to re-examine
the need for increased support
for day schools in their communi-
ties" in view of the "continuing
expansion of the day school in
terms of the number of schools
and the number of pupils, and
the increased costs of such insti-
tutional operations . . ." It also
called for the cooperation of the
national day school organizations
in this effort.
The letter to Fisher concluded

Booby—Trapped
Parcels New Worry

---

(Continued from Page 1)
Parcels containing explosives
have turned up in Tel Aviv, Jeru-
salem, Eilat and Beersheba. Police
disclosed that some have been ad-
dressed to senior scinetists, politi-
cal personalities, the director of a
firm engaged in defense work, a
senior police officer and a senior
public servant.

Two parcels were found

Wednesday addressed to the di-
rector of the Israel Labor De-
velopment Co. in Jerusalem and
the director of the Coins and
Medals Corp. Another came to a
watchmaker in Beersheba. Au-
thorities believe that most of the
parcels are addressed at random
and are calculated to stir panic
among the population.
The public has been alerted to

will be a major effort to implement
in the local communities the rec-
ommendations of the Council of
Jewish Federations and Welfare
Funds. Nevertheless, we are grate-
ful to you and to CJFWF for this
beginning and for your personal
assurance that you will take an
active role in the effort of imple-
mentation that lies ahead. In view
of the financial crisis facing the
day school, it is imperative that
this implementation take place
without delay."

The organizations joining in the
letter were: Agudath Israel of
America, National Counc il of
Young Israel, National Jewish
Commission on Law and Public
Affairs, Poalei Agudath Israel of
America, Rabbinical Alliance of
America, Rabbinical Council of
America, Religious Zionists of
America (Mizrachi-Hapoel Hamiz-

Congregations of America.

Bonn Tax Concessions to Israel
Fan Arab Governments' Protests

BONN (JTA)—Several Arab gov-
ernments have protested officially
and unofficially to the Bonn gov-
ernment over tax concessions that
favor West German business in-
vestments in Israel.
German capital invested in Is-
rael is estimated at well over $100,-
000,000, mainly in industrial
growth, hotels, tourist ventures and
public transportation.
Investors in Israeli projects en-

laws which treat as "privileged"
investments in "developing coun-
tries." Diplomatic sources here re-
vealed that the governments of
Jordan, Algeria, Lebanon and
Tunisia have demanded similar
tax privileges for investments in
their countries or, alternatively,
the "removal of preferential treat-
ment" for investments in Israel.
The investments in Israel are
usually made through brokerage
houses, one of which has reported-
ly transferred over $25,000,000 to
Israel during the past year.
The Westdeutsch Immobilien-
fonds Treuhand, a major invest-
ment firm in Cologne, is offering
the public a $20,000 tax deduction
for every $2,200 they invest in
Israel. The firm acts in coordina-
tion with the Israel Corporation
Ltd. managed by Baron Edmupd
De Rothschild. German investment
brokers prefer to handle their Is-
raeli transactions without fanfare
for fear that Arab pressure
might lead the government to shut
off this source of profitable invest-
ments. So far there have been no
negative reactions from govern-
ment authorities.

be wary of any suspicious-looking
or unexpected parcels. Police have
introduced elaborate measures to
detect the booby traps. These in-
clude a recent invention by an Is-
raeli scientist that "smells out"
explosives and X-ray machines.
The only victim of the devices so
far has been Police Inspector
Nissim Sasson, 51, who was seri-
ously injured Tuesday while trying
to dismantle a parcel filled with
explosives. His condition after sur-
gery was described as serious, but
he was reported to be out of
danger.
