WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The House Appropriations
Committee Monday voted
out a foreign aid bill of $3.5
billion including $624.5 mil-
lion for Israel and an almost
equal amount for three of
its Arab neighbors, but it
killed a proposal for screen-
ing out possible Communist
infiltrators among emi-
grants aided by U.S. funds,
including Soviet Jews going
to Israel.
The screening proposal
would have enlarged on a
proviso long a part of for-
eign aid legislation that
committed the Interna-
tional Committee on Euro-
pean, Emigration in Geneva
not to assist emigration of
Communist sympathizers
who may wish to make new
homes in the Western Hem-
isphere.
In an executive session
last week of the committee's
subcommittee handling aid
funds, a proposal was of-
fered for having the Inter-
governmental Commission
for European Migration
(ICEM) in Geneva, the U.N.

of authors, the Haggada is
not a "literary composi-
tion" in the accepted sense
of the term. Its narrative is
a collection of excerpts from
the Bible, Mishna, and Mid-
rash, interpolated with the
ritual performances: the
kidush, the benedictions
recited on the performance
of precepts, and for food,
grace after meals, and the
Hallel. Gradually, stories,
psalms, and songs were
added.
Through the generations,
the Passover Haggada has
been one of the most popu-
lar works, perhaps the most
popular, in Jewish religious
literature. Many versions,
have been preserved in var-
ious manuscripts mostly
dating from the 13th to the
15th Century, and also in
fragments from the Cairo
Geniza. These manuscripts
originate from all countries
in which Jews have lived.
Since the 15th Century, the
Haggada has had more than
2,700 editions, either with or
without commentaries.
Later editions have included
as many as 200 commentar-
ies.
