Canadian Gives Israel Museum 200 Hasmonean Coins

. ,

Two hundred different 2,000-year-old Hasmonean coins were put at the Israel
museum in Jerusalem by a Canadian collector, Hyman Bessin. Many unique pieces,
many variants, and a coin of lead are in the collection, which was in the hands of
a Jerusalem stamp collector. They were coined in Jerusalem during the reign of
four Hasmonean kings who ruled between 103 BCE and 37 'BCE. Bessin previously
gave the museum the earliest known Jewish coin. The 200 Hasmonean coins are here
on loan.

Israel Rabbis' Dispute Politically Framed

By MOSHE RON
Jewish News Israel
Correspondent
TEL AVIV — There are
some extremist rabbis and
religious political leaders in
Israel who do not take into
account the complicated po-
litical situation in Israel and
the danger of a new war
against Arab neighbors.
They have this time chosen
to attack the popular Chief
Rabbi Shlomo Goren. They
had political aims on the eve
of the Knesset elections.
These extreme elements
were behind the new verdict
of the rabbinical court in
Petah Tikva that Bolek
(Abraham) Borokovsky is, in
fact, a Jew, disregarding the
fact that another rabbinical
court, with the approval of
Chief Rabbi Goren, had

formerly declared him to be
a goy.
Borokovsky had launched
an appeal against this verdict
and the judgement of the
Petah Tikva rabbinical court
again stirred up the delicate
case of the "two bastards",
the brother and sister Lan-
ger, who have in the mean-
time married, with religious
ceremonies, and already
have children. Chief Rabbi
Goren and his court had
found the brother and sister
to be Jewish and allowed
them to marry, stating that
Abraham . Borokowsky ..was
not a Jew.
The rabbinical court in
Petah T i k v a stated, how-
ever, that Borokovsky's con-
version was according to law
and therefore the Langer
brother and sister, whose
father was their mother's
second husband, are again

A fight has broken out be-
tween Jewish leaders in
Greece and the Bonn govern-,
ment over compensation for`'
Nazi looting during the War.
The Jews in Salonika, in
northern Greece, say Bonn
is falling heir to millions of
marks unclaimed because of
the deaths of those entitled
to them, nor are West Ger-
man bureaucrats recogniz-
ing their claims for compen-
sation for plundered homes
and warehouses, they say.
At the outbreak of the war,
the JeWish community in
Salonika totalled 56,800.
When it ended, they num-
bered fewer than 2,000. The
rest had died in Nazi con-
centration camps.

When Bonn, in 1957
passed compensation laws
covering Nazi victims in oc-
cupied countries, 1,300 Salo-
nika Jews pressed their
claims. The West German
Finance Ministry replied
that, under the law, it re-
quired positive proof that
property had been confis-
cated. Someone in 1965 found
an order signed by Adolf
Eichmann in 1943 that Jew-
ish gold and jewelry was to
be shipped from Greece to
Berlin. Four years later,
Bonn agreed to pay the Salo-
nika Jews 10 per cent of

For generations, Salonika's
Jews had dominated Mace-
donian trade, industry and
society. They were rich and
lived in luxury. But, when
the survivors returned home
at the- end of the war, they
found their homes and busi-
nesses had been looted by
the Nazis. Money, jewels,
gold, goods and furnishings
had been sent to Germany.

and his party, Mafdal, on
the eve of the elections.
After the latest verdict,
one of the Mafdal leaders
told me that it was his
party'S fault that Rabbi Yit-
zhak Nissim had not been
re-elected Chief Sephardi
Rabbi of Israel. Some Mafdal
leaders supported the can-
didature of Rabbi Ovadia
Josef at the last minute.
Chief Rabbi Goren reacted
sharply on the verdict of the
Petah Tikva Rabbinical
Court and stated there is no
value to this verdict. It is
not according to the law and
does not affect the former
verdict of the rabbinical
court on the question of the
bastards. The Petach Tikva
court was not authorized to
deal with the Borokovsky
case after the previous ver-
dict. None of those concerned
with this case live in Petah
Tikva.
The who
matter was
brought up again intentional-
ly in the election campaign
between the religious, and
non-religious parties in order
to put obstacles in the way
of Mafdal to prevent them
from joining again in a
coalition government - with
Maarakh.

Greek Jews Ask. Bonn Payment

WASHINGTON—The Amer-
ican Jewish Congress urged
the U. S. Supreme Court to
declare unconstitutional the
use of a race as a criterion
in university admissions even
for the purpose of increasing
the number of minority stu-
dents.
At the same time, the AJC
asserted in a friend-of-the-
court brief that poverty and
cultural disadvantage were
proper considerations in ad-
mission procedures and that
a candidate's family, eco-
nomic and extra-curricular
background "may constitu-
tionally and legitimately be
considered by the school" in
weighing such traditional fac-
tors as prior academic rec-
ord and aptitude test scores.
Such considerations, the
AJC said, "not only provide
a method of interpreting the
numerical scores but also re-
veal the presence of addi-
tional qaulities which are
predictive of potential for
success in school, in the pro-
fessions and as a contributor
to society at large."
In another major argument,
the AJC brief challenged a
law school's contention, up-

held by a lower court, that it
could use race as an admis-
sion criterion because there
was a "compelling" state in-
terest in alleviating a "short-
age of minority attorneys,"
The brief was filed in De-
Funis vs. Odegaard, a land-
mark case that is expected to
produce a filling by the Su-
preme Court on the issue of
racially preferential treat-
ment in university admis-
sions.
In its brief amicus, the
American Jewish Congress
urged the court to rule that
this procedure violated the
Equal Protection Clause of
the 14th Amendment and was
therefore unconstitutional.
"The fact is that many
whites suffer economic and
cultural deprivation; many
are psychologically blighted
by poverty; many have at-
tended inadequate schools;
and many-must work while in
school to support themselves
and their families.
"Conversely, many appli-
cants from minority races
come from middle - class
homes and good schools."
