Religious Editors Note Israel
Depends on Christian Support

Editors of major Christian
and Jewish publibations and
theologians agreed at a con-
ference here that the viabil-
ity of Israel depends not
alone on a political solution
but on an understanding
and support of Christians in
the United States.
There was general agree-
ment among the 60 partici-
pants that Christians and
Jews working together in
the framework of the
shared Judeo-Christian val-
ues could do much to resolve
the numerous dilemmas
relating to an understand-
ing of Israel, including such
questions as Jerusalem and
the Palestinians.
The meeting was spon-
sored by the Synagogue
Council of America, the
umbrella agency of national
congregational and rabbinic
bodies in this country, rep-
resenting the three-
branches of Judaism and
