Arab Writer Urges Her People to Talk With Israelis on Peace

Efros Bond Dinner Nets $87,750

"In the Middle East argu-
ment, we should throw away
the history books and turn a
fresh page."
Sana Hassan, daughter of a
former Egyptian ambassa-
dor and wife of a high-rank-
ing Egyptian official, told
more than 1,000 persons Sun-
dat at Adat Shalom Syna-
gogue that the only way
peace in the Middle East will
be achieved is when "the
Arabs . . . get together with

with Israeli journalist, Amos
Elon, Miss Hassan empha-
sized the need for peace talks
and not for "shuttle diplo-
macy" by U.S. Secretary of
State He,iry A. Kissinger.
"I am grateful for Mr. Kis-
singer's efforts, but I don't
think Kissinger can get my
peace for me," she said.
Elon, who comes from the
opposite side of the dispute,
agreed with Miss Hassan.
"Unless (Egyptian President
Anwar) Sadat talks with
(Israeli Premier Yitzhak)
Rabin, the guns will cut us
short again."
Author of "The , Israelis:
Founders and Sons," Elon
said that despite their dras-
tically different backgrounds,
they agreed on four basic

Reform Rabbis Splinter Group Blasted


Editor, The Jewish News:
The Central Conference of
Reform Rabbis has taken a
firm position forbidding its
members to officiate at
mixed marriages. Several
rabbis have formed a splinter
group to oppose this position

As a member of a Reform
congregation, a Jewish
mother and a concerned Jew
I urge our local rabbis to not
join this splinter group!
The Reform Jew has made
many concessions to our
ever-changing cultural soci-
ety that are logical and ac-
ceptable. But sanctioning in-
termarriage not only threat-
ens the future of Judaism,
but almost assures the as-
similation of our people.
The existence of Jews for
thousands of years in spite of
nomadic conditions was goy-
erned by religious law. Heri-
tage in blood and spirit is the
destiny of the Jew. He must
be aware of himself to avoid
inevitable destruction. As-
similation is disintegration!

1.2A Scholarships
Awarded to Youth

NEW YORK—A number of
young people who have ded-
icated themselves to a year
of study and service in Israel
are receiving special scholar-
ships from the Labor Zionist
Alliance, announced Jacob
Katzman, executive vice pres-
ident of the LZA.
Katzman said that the
scholarships were instituted
"to enable American youth
to establish firm ties with Is-
rael through direct partici-
pation in various phases of
Israeli life, such as educa-
tion, leadership development
and training programs, as
well as work on kibutzim."
The scholarships are given
each year to eligible college-
age children and grandchil-
dren of members of the La-
bor Zionist Alliance. Many
of the recipients are mem-
bers of Habonim, the Labor
Zionist Youth movement.

objections to the Israelis
owning the Hilton Hotel in
Cairo, as long as the Saudis
could own the King David
Hotel in Jerusalem. Don't
forget 'that we have eVen
more capital than you do,
that we can invest in Israel.
Elon: Do you mean to soy
that you would actually wel-
come Israeli experts and Is-
raeli technical assistants in
the Arab countries?
Hassan: Yes, by all means.
I think there is no shame in
admitting that there are
many things I can learn from
you, just as there are differ-
ent things you can learn
from us. I think that we
should encourage all kinds
of programs of technical and
economic cooperation, pro-
vided that your experts -and
our experts can get together
and discuss problems in com-
mon to the area ..
Above all, we will have
open roads, open- bridges and
will share _ each other's full
facilities. Tourism and cul-
tural exchange will flourish.
"Aida" will be performed in
the city of Suez by the Is-
raeli Philharmonic Orches-
tra with Leonard Bernstein
as conductor, and our famous
singer Um Kalsoum will
give recitals in Tel Aviv.
. Elon: I am sure this yill
happen. As we become more
assimiliated in the area and

you become more European-
ized, we shall meet some-
where midway . . . As our
identities and cultures con-
verge we will try to be part
of a higher, larger whole,
without losing our own par-
ticular faces.
Hassan: Let's hope the
next stage will be a United
States of the Middle East
when all barricades between
people will have fallen. The
old European nations are
moving in this direction. I
hope that in 25 years we
shall be moving in that di-
rection too. I know this
sounds crazy today, but if
it helped to be a little crazy
to be a Zionist, maybe it
will help us also.

choose, the more you stand
to lose.
