WJCongress Puts Off Decision on Where to Hold 1975 Plenary

LAUSANNE (JTA) — The
governing council of the
World Jewish Congress has
decided to postpone its next
plenary assembly until 1975
and to decide later this year
where it will be held.
The gathering, which had
been set for the Netherlands
last winter, was canceled for
security reasons and a con-
troversy over its new site
developed with Zionists and
their supporters insisting on
Israel.
Dr. Nahum Goldmann,
president of the WJC, said he
would "accept any decision
by the governing council re-
garding the venue and time
of the assembly" and observ-
ed that "too much has been
made by some of the media
about this issue."
The decision to hold the
plenary assembly some time
in 1975, was made at a three-
day meeting of the WJC's
governing council here.
The council's decision was
to hold a meeting of an en-
larged council in Jerusalem
late this year which would
appoint a small committee
to decide the final date and
location of the next plenary
assembly.
The committee would be
free to make its own deci-
sions, but the governing coun-
cil has recommended that the
plenary assembly be held in
a North American city if at
all possible.
In a survey of the world
Jewish situation and par-
ticularly the Middle East, Dr.
Goldmann asserted that
chances for peace in the re-
gion seemed gOod now but
the danger remained that
they would be lost through
the_. fault of either or both
sides.
He said that world Jewry
had the right to express
opinions about Israel, bear-

ing in mind that the final de-
cisions must rest with the
Israelis and "we outside
should give Israel all our
support, however the deci-
sions of the Israel govern-
ment fall."
Shimon Dery, representing
the World Sephardi Union,
spoke of worsening conditions
of Syrian Jews and par-
titularly of the closed trial
of two Jewish youths falsely
accused of the murder of four
Jewish women: "No lawyer
for the defendants was per-
mitted, the press was ex-
cluded from the courtroom
and they were denied their
very basic human rights," he
said.
At the suggestion of the
WJC Israel executive, the
council decided to create 22

Devaluation Rumors Persist

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — The
rumor mill predicts an im-
minent devaluation of the Is-
rael currency.
It is widely believed that
the new minister of finance,
Yehoshua Rabinowitz, has al-
ready decided in principle
on the devaluation and that
the official announcement is
forthcoming.
As a result of these rumors,
the demand for dollars has
risen and the black market
rate has climbed to $1 = IL
5.20 (compared with the of-
ficial rate of $1 = IL 4.20).
Financial experts predict
that the rate following deval-
uation will be between IL 6
and IL 6.50 to the dollar.
Meanwhile, Moshe Zanwar,
governor of the Bank of Is-
rael, warns that Israel's eco-
nomic- situation is very dif-
ficult with grave dangers
ahead.
The Hebrew daily Ha'aretz
reports Zanwar was parti-
cularly concerned that too
great a dependence on Amer-
ican aid and on investments
from aboard is fraught with
political risks. He said it is

high school scholarships in
memory of the 22 victims of
the Ma'alot massacre, to be
offered to children in develop-
ment towns.
The council also decided
to institute a special award
in memory of Dr. Stephen
Wise, to be made biennially
to men and women of all
faiths for humanitarian serv-
ices to either the Jewish
people or humanity as a
whole.
Dr. Arieh Tartakower sub-
mitted his final report as
director of the WJC cultural
department. Dr. Nahum Gold-
mann, WJC president, prais-
ed Dr. Tartakower as .a
founder of the WJC and said
he would devote his time to
writting a three-volume his-
tory of the WJC.

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A
group of American journalists
touring the Middle East
sharply criticized Israel's in-
formation. policy, which they
compared unfavorably with
that in the four Arab coun-
tries they have just visited.
The group of 91 includes
six editors of Anglo-Jewish
weeklies published in the

They complained that the
lack of organization made it
difficult for them to get
around the country, that they
were unable to meet public
figures and that no press of-
ficer was assigned to show
them around.
They said that in contrast,
they had received especially
good treatment in Egypt,
Lebanon, Syria and Jordan
where they visited before
coming to Israel. "Israel
missed a golden opportunity
to generate some good public
relations," one of the news-
men said.

Golda Gets Checkup

economic crises may beset

Zanwar insisted that the
public face up to reality and
accept a greater commitment
to thrift.

Soviets, Israel

ambassador to Uruguay and
to Brazil and former head of
the World Zionist Organiza-
tion education and culture
department.
Dr. Goldmann also an-
Dr. Maurice Perlzweig, 78,

A luncheon honored Marc
Turkow, WJC representative
in Latin America and secre-
tary general of the Latin
American Jewish Congress
marking his '70th birthday.
Delegates attending a meet-
ing of the European execu-
tive of the World Jewish
Congress said in Montreux
that the recent changes of
government in West Ger-
many, France and Portugal
will not affect the condition
of Jews in those countries.
Representatives from 12
European Jewish communi-
ties were joined by repre-
sentatives of WIZO, the Eur-
opean branch of the World
Sephardi Federation and the
World Union of Jewish Stu-
dents.
Dr. Goldmann told the
gathering "We have not
abandoned hope that Sovq.et
Jews will be represented at
future WJC gatherings." He
said this may come about
"when the Middle East sit-
uation is a little more stabi-
lized and it will be easier to
make progress on the Soviet
Jewish issue."
Heinz Galinski, chairman
of the Jewish community in
West Berlin said, "There will
be a continuation of the
friendly relations between
West Germany and Israel on
the practical level without
an emotional background."
He reported, however, that
German Jews were being
subjected to a barrage of
anti-Semitic propaganda ema-
nating from the extreme right
wing and the far left.

TEL AVIV (ZINS)—A vis-
iting Soviet delegation, here
to participate in ceremonies
commemorating the victory
of the Allied forces over Hit-
ler Germany, said that Mos-
cow is ready to renew diplo-
matic relations with Israel.
Delegation head Anatoly
Smirnoff asserted that the
position of his government
has been consistent ever
since 1947, "when the Krem-
lin recognized the historic
right of the Jewish people,
and also the historic rights
of the Palestinian Arabs."
Smirnoff said that "Israel
must base its policies on
realities. Diplomatic relations
between our two countries
will be renewed," he said,
"when the obstacles which THE' DETROIT JEWISH NEWS
Friday, June 21 ) 1974-17
resulted in their rupture will
have been removed."
The indispensable condi-
tion, he added, is contained
in UN Resolution 242, which
calls upon Israel to withdraw
from all of the occupied
Arab territories.

Neo-Nazi Line

HARTFORD (JTA) — A
telephone service for a
Bridgeport Nazi group offer-
ing recorded anti-Semitic and
anti-Black messages was ter-
minated Monday according
to an announcement by the
New England Telephone •Co.
The utility previously had
taken the position that it
could not terminate the ser-
vice without being ordered
to do so by the State Public
Utilities Commission, which
had received many com-
plaints.
In response to a complaint
by Attorney General Robert
Killian, the police depart-
ment of Bridgeport, where
the National Socialist White
People's Party has its office,
informed the utility that the
department had determined
that the Nazi Party was us-
ing the telephone service- "in
violation of the law" and that
it be stopped.
