Editor, The Jewish News:

Promoted by a genuine
belief in Baroness Gait-
skell's sense of fairness and
justice I submitted the ma-
ligning definitions of "Jew"
in the Oxford dictionaries
for her consideration in the
hope that she would be
moved to start a bill in the
House of Lords which would
remedy this grievous injus-
tice to Jewry.
I have received the follow-
ing reply: "Thank you for
your letter of Jan. 30th.
have once again looked up
the definition of 'Jew' in the
Oxford dictionary and I
share your disgust. How-
ever, I am totally against in-
troducing a Bill in the
House of Lords on the lines
you suggest for . more than
one reason.

"I do not think this kind
of motion warrants a Bill,
and I think the plight of Is-
rael in the world today is far
too serious, and even dan-
gerous, to concentrate on
such a trivial matter. It
would get little sympathy
and by the publicity—would
be counter-productive.

windows. At 10 p.m. the
streets and the seashore'
were full of people singing
and dancing.
The Histadrut arranged a
seder in the Mugrabi Hall in
Tel Aviv. There were 1,000
guests - present, amongst
them artists, high British
officials and cultural func-
tionaries. The Seder was fol-
lowed by an art and musical
program in which artists of
"Habima" and Ohel" took
part. The crowd filled the
Mugrabi house:and danced
during the night.
In Jerusalem the Wailing •
Wall was strongly guarded
by police-patrols as thou-
sands prayed. There were
only a few tourists in Jeru-
salem owing to the clashes
with the Arab terrorists,
but the King David Hotel
held a festive -Seder for
them. Another public Seder
for foreigners was held in
the Menora Club.
Even the attacks of the
Arab terrorists, which
caused many Jewish vic-
tims, could not interfere
with the festive Seder at-
mosphere all over the coun-
try.

HEBRON (ZINS) —
Among the resolutions
adopted by a conference of
150 Arab notables from
Hebron and its'environs was
the pronouncing of a curse
on all Arabs who accept em-
ployment in Kiryat She-
mona.
Included in the remaining
resolutions were a protest
against Israeli construction
on the Jerusalem-Bethle-
hem road and in the city of
Hebron. The assembly also
protested President Katzir's
participation in the national
conference of the Herut
party at giryat Shemona,
and that of other govern-
ment ministers as well. .
