TEL AVIV (JTA) — John
Chafee, former governor of
Rhode Island and U. S. sec-
retary of the navy from 1969-
72, has been elected chairman
of the American Oil Trans-
port Co., a subsidiary of Mar-
itime Fruit Carriers Ltd. of
Haifa, a world-wide Israeli
shipping company.
A spokesman for Maritime
Fruit Carriers said Chafee
was elected to the post after
another prominent American,
former Sen. Kenneth Keating,
withdrew. Keating, a New
York Republican, former
U. S. ambassador to India, is
mentioned recently as the
possible next U. S. ambassa-
dor to Israel.
Other members of the
board of the Israeli subsidi-
ary are Saul Linowitz, for-
mer board chairman of Xerox
Corp. and fOrmer U. S. am-
bassador to the Organization
of American States; Willard
Wirtz, secretary of labor dur-
ing the Kennedy and John-
son administrations; a n d
Struve Hensel, assistant sec-
retary of defense in the Eis-
enhower administration.
Maritime Fruit Carriers
specializes in the transport of
fruits, vegetables and other
perishables and• reportedly
owns 18 per cent °lithe world's
reefer ship tonnage, part of
it under the Israeli flag. The
firm recently placed an order
for 20 ships, including super
tankers, with British and
North Ireland shipyards.

will preach the first day of
Passover on the .1.11Jject "Le-
shana Ha-baah—Next Year
in Jerusalem."
Announcing his plans to
the Bnai David membership,
Rabbi Donin said he will de-
vote himself to .k.riting as
well as research and that he
feels he can best achieve this
objective by making his home
in Jerusalem with his family.
Defining his objectives for
the future he wrote to the
members of the congregation:
"I will devote my full time,
at least for the next several
years to writing a 'Parent's
Guide to Jewish Education'
(for which I have already re-
ceived a contract from Basic
Books, Inc. publishers of 'To
Be A Jew'); a 'Worshiper's
Guide to the Prayerbook';
and an 'Evaluation of the
American Synagogue.' If
these planned books turn out
to be as good and as well re-
ceived as 'To Be a Jew,'
I believe that I will be mak-
ing a far greater contribu-
tion to American Jewry and
even to our own membership
than I cuold be continuing
to occupy myself with the
routine of a busy and de-
manding rabbinical position."
Rabbi Donin said he hopes
to spend several months a
year in this country and to
have opportunities of lectur-
ing at seminars and to share
with American Jewish Com-
munities "whatever new in-
sights and knowledge I will
gain."
