THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

NEW YORK — The insti-
tutions of Reform Judaism
have set aside the period
between the Jewish holi-
days of Passover
(Wednesday) to Shavuot
(May 16) for a major effort
by congregations and indi-
viduals to alleviate the
"plague of world famine
which now afflicts 400,-
000,000 of our fellow human
beings."

The 1.1 million members
of Reform synagogues in
the United States and Can-
ada are being asked to sign
P7Tte Passover pledge cards com-
....„ mitting each congregant to
is duce waste of food, cut
on beef, support legis-
on and contribute funds
and participate in other -ac-
[--
tivities to alleviate world
hunger.
The Commission on Social
Action of Reform Judaism
— a joint body of both the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations and the Cen-

y

tral Conference of Ameri-
can Rabbis — mailed pledge
cards to be signed by mem-
bers of the movement's 715
congregations.

The four-page card,
"Passover Pledge of Con-
science," calls upon the
Reform Jew to reduce his
beef intake by one-third;
practice two meatless days
each week; observe an
additional fast day an-
nually; if possible, grow
fruits and vegetables at
home; neuter household
pets; not use fertilizer for
non-food purposes, such as
lawns; and to forward
money saved by these acts
to UAHC Hunger Head-
quarters, 838 Fifth Av-
enue, New York 10021,
where the funds will be
distributed to appropriate
.agencies.

Both the congregations
and their members were
urged to conduct educa-
tional forums, hold special
religious services, communi-

cate with national legisla-
tors to support American
leadership in granting aid
and development programs
'to food-deficit nations and
to encourage United States
participation in the creation
of world food and fertilizer
reserve systems, collect food
and clothing for poor fami-
lies in the community and
adopt similar food conserva-
tions practices as indicated
on the pledge card.
A special appeal was
made to 15-16 year-old con-
firmands whose graduation
exercises are usually held
during the religious observ-
ance of Shavuot. The young
people were asked to incor-
porate the "mitzvot" of feed-
ing the hungry and helping
the needy.
Youngsters were urged to
participate with their par-
ents at Shavuot in a na-
tional Reform "Bikkurim —
food awareness day" by ob-
serving some of the recom-
mended personal activities,

NEW YORK — A recent
issue of Sports Illustrated
magazine described "the
last of the good Jewish
fighters," middleweight
boxer Max Cohen.
Cohen, the middleweight
champion of France, is a
character according to the
article written by John Vin-
ocur. A Morrocan Jew, his
family now lives in Beer-
sheba.
Vinocur writes: "In spite
of his name, Cohen made
the Morrocan amateur
team, losing only once in 44
fights, and was chosen for
the Pan-Arab Games when
he was 20.

Most Convicted Terrorists
Have Suffered Very Little

The Detroit Free Press
Parade Magazine published
a list Sunday of what has
happened to Arab terrorists
who have been caught.
Two years ago eight Arab
terrorists murdered Cleo
Noel Jr. the U.S. Ambassa-
dor to the Sudan, and two
other diplomats. They were
tried in a Sudanese court,

the punishment. The eight
are now in Cairo, appar-

attacks, expelled the two
Palestinians, who are now
free.
In September, 1972, eight
Arab terrorists assassi-

Israeli Olympic team in
Munich. Five of the Arab
gunmen were killed by pol-

blow it up, unless the three
Arab prisoners were re-
leased. The West German
government flew them to Li-
bya where they were set
free.

semi-finals. Friends sug-

the next match, against an
