Jewish Communtiy, U. M. Voice Accolades
for Haber; Podhoretz Warns Against Start of
New Quota System, Calls It Blasphemous

An American Jewish pro-
gram to instill confidence in
tasks for youth involvement
and in assuring continuity in
progressive efforts overseas
and on domestic front was

nesday, at the dinner at Cong.
Shaarey Zedek in his honor.
The event marked the
presentation, at the annual
dinner meeting of the Detroit
chapter of the American
Jewish Committee, of the

his leadership in Jewish
causes.

Straus was elected president
to succeed him.
The portion devoted to the
accolades was chaired by
Avern Cohn who announced
a number of awards after
paying honor to Dr. Haber.
Joining him in honoring
the awardee were Dean
Frank Rhodes of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, who brought
the university's good wishes
to Dr. Haber, and Philip
Slomovitz, who described
American and world Jewry's
debts to the honoree of the
evening.
Norman Podhoretz, editor
of the AJCommittee-publish-
ed Commentary, the guest
speaker, drew comparative
patterns of anti-Semitic
trends in this country in the
past half century. He pointed
out that there was a taboo on
anti-Semitism, that resort to
prejudice was anathema dur-
ing the 1940s.
While recognizing that
politically Jews are as active
as ever and are politically
prominent, .Podhoretz never-
theless warned of a return to
anti-Semitism.
He especially deplored the
new form of prejudice in-
herent in the quota system,
in reverse discrimination, as
was evidenced in the DeFunis
case. -
He admonished liberals not

to be misled into viewing the
new trend as representing
social justice. He said he
could not support such a pro-
gram and urged action to
combat it. He warned: "It is
blasphemy to call it (the new
quota system) social justice."

Jews Urged N ot
to Shun Blacks'
Equality Fight

ATLANTA — Vernon E.
Jordan Jr., executive direc-
tor of the National .Urban
League , urged American
Jews not to shun the black
people's battle for equality.
Speaking to the Atlanta
chapter of the American
Jewish Committee Sunday,
Jordan said there is a "grow-
ing black feeling that some
Jewish people are no longer
including themselves in the
coalition to build a more
equal society."
He said that the Jews, who
struggled alone over poverty
and oppression, have turned
to those still struggling and
suggested that they continue
their battle as the Jews—
alone.
"Black people have paid
their dues in the form. of
slavery, peonage and exclu-
sion for nearly 400 years and
there is little justification to
add another 50 or 100 years
to our passage into equality.
"Times have changed, too.
Our technological economy,
the shrinking of traditional
stepping-stone jobs, the over-
credentialization in the work-
place all combine to make it
impossible for today's de-
prived to duplicate the Jew-
ish experience," Jordan
contended.
He also said there is less
anti-Semitism - among blacks
than among any other sector
of the American community.
