Clarification of Religious Status of Black Jews Urged at Parley

NEW YORK—The status of
American black Jews under
Jewish law was explored
here last week at a national
conference on black Jews
sponsored by the Synagogue
Council of America. Attended
by 120 religious and commu-
nity leaders, including black
Jews, the consultation ex-
plored the origins, history
and current concerns of this
special group.
A resolution adopted by the
participants called on the
Synagogue Council to estab-
lish a special task force to
clarify the religious status of
black Jews and to facilitate
their religious and social in-
tegration into the large Jew-
ish community.
"There are no hyphenated
Jews" was the opening
theme of a presentation by

he stated. Maintaining that
the peoplehood of Israel is
not founded on racist prin-

Conference participants
adopted a resolution at the
closing session calling on the
Synagogue Council to send a
delegation to the Falasha

A Human President

JERUSALEM — A posed
photograph of then President-
elect Ephraim Katzir printed
in Yediot Ahronot in mid-
May showed him lounging in
an armchair stroking his Si-
amese cat.
After Chaim Weizmann,
David Ben-Zvi and Zalman
Shazar, everyone was accus-
tomed to more august pic-
tures of their president. But,
writes David Landau for
JTA, "young people greeted
the picture as auguring a
livelier and more human
presidency."

(As seen on television)

You saw the Seiko DX watches on television. Now you
can see why owning a Seiko is like having your own little
robot. Self-winding, 17 jewels, bi-lingual instant day-
date change calendars, 98.2 ft. water-tested and syn-
chronized second setting. And because it's made by
automation, you pay only for the timepiece, not the
time it took to make it.
