Goldmann's Farewell Address Calls for Shift in Jewish Emphasis

(Continued from Page 1)
Goldmann, who was a co-
founder of the WJC with the
late Rabbi Stephen Wise in
1932 and remained a leader
in it ever since, virtually
discarded his prepared vale-
dictory in keynoting the con-
ference at its first night ses-
sion. He warned, "If Israel
remains a state like other

states it will not survive. He
added that "Israel must be
a unique country because
the Jewish people is
unique. -
He said that - If the
people of Israel don't want
to see this, I don't want to
say what will happen to
Israel. - He observed "the
ideal of a people is more
important than a state, -
although - sovereignty is
needed to implement it."
Goldmann warned world
Jewry that it faces "tre-
mendous danger - to its
existence because of "the
most revolutionary change"
in its position. He noted that
in the Diaspora, Jews have
solved their external prob-
lems with those among who
they live but "our internal
front" is eroding and
"becoming weaker from
year to year."
Jewish historical evolu-
tion, he said, in his prepared
text, was characterized
primarily by a conflict of
political and theological
ideas. "These ideological
issues were the basis of our
creativity, he said.
"If we compare this with
the situation in the Jewish

world today. both in Israel
and the Diaspora, we find
its main context a struggle
for positions, fund-raising,
protests of all kinds of
injustices—all fully legiti-
mate but unable to fill the
life of such a talented and
creative people as ours. -
Differences, he said, have
"nearly disappeared"
among Israel's political par-
ties, he said, contending
that there is only a "min-
imal difference" between
the Likud coalition and the
Labor Alignment it
succeeded.
Goldmann criticized U.S
Jewry for having "too many
organizations and presi-
dents" and noted that in
America "everything is
superlative." Jews have a
"great quality—over-optim-
ism" and "also a tre-
mendous genius for fooling
ourselves, and we pay for
this," he said, pointing to
the HOlocaust.
In a tribute to Zionism,
Goldmann said that in an
age "more destructive than
constructive," Zionism "is
one of the most construc-
tive. Zionism's essence is to

New Haven Dedicates First
Municipal Holocaust Memorial

NEW HAVEN—More than
3,000 people attended the
dedication last Sunday of a
memorial to the Six NEllion
of the Holocaust set in a city

first such memorial in the
country to be built under the
direction of a municipal
government.
Plans for the memorial
came into being last 'year
after New Haven's mayor,
Frank Logue, returned in
November from a trip to
Israel, according to Diane
Henry of the New York
'limes. The mayor and Lew

Also speaking Tuesday,
Simon Veil, French minister

Lehrer, a New Haven
Holocaust survivor, decided
to have a memorial built.
The mayor then formed a
committee of members of
various ethnic and religious
groups in the community to
see to the project.
The memorial originally
was to have- been a simple
grove of six trees. However,
a Connecticut architect,
Augustus Franzoni—a Cath-
olic Italian—learned of the
proposal and offered his
skills. His design of a
cement Star of David sur-
mounted by steel posts
ringed with barbed wire and
circled by six trees, was
accepted by the committee.
Buried in the center of the
memorial is an urn of ashes
from the Auschwitz death
camp.
For nearly two hours Sun-
day, speakers, some of
them survivors of the
'camps themselves, spoke of
the Nazi era and the signifi-
cance of the memorial as a
reminder of the tremendous
tragedy which resulted.

speech was interrupted
three times by individual
shouts from the audiece.
Earlier in the day, Sen.
Howard Baker (R-Tenn).
told the WJCongress the
Carter Administration is
playing Russian roulette
with Israel's security.
On Tuesday, Andrew
Young, the U.S. ambassador
to the United Nations,
assured the World Jewish
Congress that the "prin-
ciples, goals and objectives
of this Administration are
identical with those of Pres-
ident Truman in 1948."
In a speech in which he
pointedly avoided discussing
U.S. Middle East policy,
Young said that - peace in
1978 certainly may require
more understanding and
more risk" than previously.
But he suggested less con-
cern about the "risks of
seeking peace" than "those
that certainly go with war."
Young's remarks were
received in silence.
Speaking of the UN,
Young said there is an inter-
relationship between
Israel's problem and those
of the U.S. With the U.S.
"identified as Israel's pow-
erful friend everyone that
has a quarrel with the
United States but can't get
to us because we are too
powerful take it out on
Israel," Young said.

he said.
Israeli Ambassador
Simha Dinitz was scheduled
to speak to a closed-door
session Wednesday morning
and former U.S. Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger
was to speak at a private
session Thursday.
President Jimmy Carter
addressed the World Jewish
Congress Wednesday
evening.
He said that -we are
proud to be Israel's firm
friends and closest part-
ner—and we shall stand by
Israel always."
He added, however, that a
Middle East peace was vital
to the U.S. as well, and the
U.S. could not allow this
opportunity for a M.E.
peace to slip away.
Carter criticized Israel
for its settlement policy on
the West Bank and also hit
the Palestine Liberation
Organization for not recog-
nizing Israel's right to exist.
The President defended
his M.E. policies, his
"efforts to assist the proc-
ess of conciliation." His
