of both President Ford
and former Governor
Jimmy Carter.
The accusations reflect
the degree of intensity
with which both camps
are pursuing Jewish vot-
ers who are regarded as
crucial in some states
with major bearing on the
election's outcome.
Carter people have
pointed out that the Pres-
ident is being shown in a
photo with Israeli Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin
in advertisements in the
Jewish press. The photo is
captioned "as good a
friend as Israel's had" —
which appears to be at-
tributed to Rabin.
The advertisements on
Ford's behalf also quote
from statements by Rabin
to the Rabbinical Council
of America, lauding the
President's record in
Congress and saying "the
consensus on Ford's
character" is that of "an
honest man who has al-
ways spoken frankly and
who is unlikely to yield to
political and diplomatic
convenience."
The President has often
referred in his campaign-
ing to Rabin's statement
that U.S.-Israeli rela-
tions have been at their
highest levels during the
past two years — Presi-
dent Ford's incumbency
at the White House.
The advertisement has
been reported in Israel
and drawn a statement

from Rabin that he is not
taking sides in the U.S.
election and has not au-
thorized the publication
of the photo. Rabin was
accused in the 1972 elec-
tion, when he was Israel's
ambassador in Washing-
ton, of supporting Presi-
dent Richard Nixon for
re-election. Rabin was
reported in Jerusalem to
have expressed dismay
by the advertisements
and that he had no prior
knowledge of the ads.
The Ford people in turn
have pointed out that
Carter is shown with Is-
raeli Ambassador Simcha
Dinitz in advertisements
in Jewish-American pa-
pers and the caption
reads "Jimmy Carter re-
ceived the coveted
Eleanor Roosevelt-Israel
Humanities Award in
1973" from Dinitz.
Carter also was photo-
graphed with former Is-
raeli General Arier Sha-
ron, a hero of the Yom
Kippur War. They met
briefly in Washington last
month. Sharon said he
asked to meet Carter and
the meeting was speedily
arranged.
Questioned about the
Carter camp charges,
Ford partisans have
made retorts such as
these: "What is there to
complain about? What's
the big Tsimmes? They
have pictures, too.
"If they had one of
Carter and Rabin to-
gether, the Carter public-
ity people would use -it
too. There is no endorse-
ment by Rabin for Ford or
Dinitz for Carter, as there
should not be. They ap-
pear in advertisements,
so what?"
Carter partisans have
implied that showing the
President and the prime
minister in political ad-
vertisements are inimical
to the spirit of non-
solicitation of foreign
support and accused the
President's people of
crossing the line in that
respect.
Actually, partisans of
both Presidential candi-

Cards to Counter
Anti-Zionist Rule

A Danish-based group,
led by a non-Jew and
operating under the
name "For Israel's Right
to Exist," has launched
an international cam-
paign with greeting
cards, posters, stickers,
and transfers to coun-
teract the UN General
Assembly's anti-Zionism
resolution.
World renowed artists
have donated their des-
igns for the cards.
Among the artists who
have contributed to the ef-
fort are Robert Mother-
well, Carl-Henning Peder-
sen, Jokab Weidemann,
Henry Moore, Sam Fran-
cis and Jasper Johns.
The cards come 30 per
package and are either
blank or carry a greeting
inside. For information,
write "For Israel's Right
to Exist," P.O. Box 8647,
Oakland, Calif., 94608.

dates can easily show
photos of them with Is-
raeli officials or Ameri-
can Jewish leaders.
Dinitz and other high-
ranking embassy officials
were present at the many
affairs and meetings the
President and Carter
have had with major
American Jewish organi-
zations and communal
leaders this autumn.
Meanwhile, in New
York, a White House aide
told a meeting of Jewish
educators that assistance
to non-public schools will
be a top priority in the next
Ford Administration.
According to David
Lissy, associate director
of President Ford's
Domestic Council and
White House liaison with
the Jewish community,
"The President feels
strongly that non-public
schools should be eligible
to receive federal monies,
and the next Ford Admin-
istration will give this
matter major attention.
Perhaps this aid could be
worked out through tax
programs or other
mechanisms."
The meeting Monday
was attended by a large,
wide-ranging group of
educators, including ad-
ministrators of the Board
of Jewish Education of
New York, Torah
Umesorah (National As-
sociation of New York,
Torah Umesorah. Na-
tional Association of He-
brew Day. Schools), and
principles of Hassidic

schools
and
other
yeshivot, as well as day",
schools run by the Sol-
omenotn. Schechter move-
m
ment.
Jewish commu-` -\
nity is not getting its fair
share of available aid,"
Lissy said. "It is entitled
to such aid, but is not get-- /\
ting it because it has not
been aggressive enough./
There are about 30 prc/
grams whose eligibility
includes
non-public
schools, among them pro-
grams for the handicap-
ped, disadvantaged, and
low income communities
with problems."
Lissy said that a review
of current regulations
and procedures for de-
livery of aid to non-public
schools was projected for
the next Ford Adminis-
tration. A government- ,
sponsored workshop to
deal with these problems
was also planned.
