must surely generate a
decent humility towards
Soviet Jews who, in their
fatigue and confusion,
are unable to fulfill the
dictates of our national

When Zionism celeb-
rated its decisive political
victory after World War I
its leaders took a double
and parallel course.
Weizmann and his col-
leagues appeared before
the peace conference in
1919 with their call for
recognition of Jewish na-

The most 'satanic and

We dare not accord re-
troactive validity to this
libel by giving our Jewish
solidarity a parochial or
selective interpretation.
When we rightly assert
that a Jewish state, had it
existed in the 1940's,
would have saved the
lives of millions of Jews,
the diagnosis certainly
includes not only those
who would have "come

sense, but also those who
would have used a

forms of personal de-

I hope that Israeli lead-

Jewish Symposium Set in Moscow

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
delegation of four Ameri-
can Jewish scholars has
been chosen to go to Mos-
cow in response to a
world-wide call for Jewish
scholars to attend a
three-day symposium in
Moscow organized by a
small group of Soviet
Jews, according to the
Association for Jewish
Studies (AJS).
The AJS was one of the
Jewish groups which re-
ceived the invitation, said
Dr. Leon A. Jick, director
of the Center for Contem-

An American Academic
Committee for the Mos-
cow Conference, which is
scheduled to meet Dec.
19-21, has been formed to
support the goals of the
conference, at which the
Moscow Jewish activists
hope to meet to discuss
the future of Jewish cul-

Papers Disagree. on Dropouts

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Two of Israel's leading
newspapers have taken
opposing views on the
issue of Russian drop-
outs. Editorials in the
Jerusalem Post and
Haaretz reflect the
polarization of opinion in
Israel as to whether as-
sistance should be ex-
tended to Jews who leave
the Soviet Union with Is-
raeli visas but go
elsewhere.
The Post maintains
that dropouts should not
be aided by Israel or by

World Jewish organiza-
tions because their defec-
tion jeopardizes the en-
tire aliya movement in
the USSR.
Haaretz holds, how-
ever, that denying these
emigrants aid would
transgress against a car-
dinal Jewish precept —
"pidyon shevuyim" — the
rescue of prisoners. The
paper states that the re-
scue of Jews from a land
where they cannot main-
tain their Jewishness
takes primacy over what
their ultimate destina-
tion may be.
In New York, Menachem
Beigin, the leader of the
Likud opposition in Israel,
suggested that there
should be an "interim"
period of about a year be-
fore any aid is cut off to
Soviet Jews who leave the
USSR for Israel but go to
some other country. He
said this would prevent
creating real human hard-

ships.

Beigin told an overflow
crowd of some 2,000
people at Cong. B'nai
Jeshurun in Manhattan
that during this transi-
tion period efforts should
be made to convince the
potential dropouts that
they owe it to themselves
and their fellow Jews to
go to Israel.

Subsidy Criticized

JERUSALEM (ZINS)
— Knesset member Yosi
Sharid strongly criticized
subsidies paid to Israeli
officers who are sent to
the U.S. for specialized
military training. He
claims that the standard
of living of these Israeli
officers is too high. Sharid
cited the $50,000 paid to
General Eli Zeira for 14
months in the U.S. as en-
tirely unrealistic — espe-
cially when it was known
that the general would
not return to military
service:

cow to participate, the ac-
tivists affirmed the rights
of Soviet Jewry to cultural
freedom and cited the
tenets of the Helsinki
agreement. Elie Wiesel is
chairman of the American
committee.
Jick said the American
Jewish scholars — Mar-
vin Herzog of Columbia
University, Baruch
Levine of New York Uni-
versity, Jacob Neusner of
Brown University and
Marshall Sklare of Bran-
deis University — had
applied for visas in the
hope that Soviet au-
thorities would permit
the conference to take
place, allow the activists
to rent a hall for the con-
clave, and issue the visas
for the four American
Jewish scholars "in the
spirit of the Helsinki
agreement."
Jick said similar com-
mittees had been or-
ganized in Israel and in
Britain.

American Jewish leaders
from a pressure that goes
against every fraternal
and humane impulse. In
any case this is a theme
on which American Jews
have a right, and per-
haps a duty, to assert
their independent judg-
ment.
Nothing could be more
tragic than -to embark on
a policy that would cause
division between Ameri-
can Jews and each other,
between American and
Russian Jews, between
Israel and the Jews of the
two main diasporas. If we
separate our disapproval
of the drop-out process
from our humane duty to
those involved, these dis-
cords can still be avoided.
(In an address last
week to the Women's
League for Conservative
Judaism meeting at
Kiamesha Lake, N.Y.,
Eban said that "Ameri-
can Jews are making
practically no contribu-
tion to help Israel's de-
mographic drought" by
aliya.)
