NEW YORK (JTA)—Pre-
mier Menachem Begin of
Israel disclosed that he had
invited the leaders of Syria
and Jordan to join with
Israel and Egypt in seeking
an overall Middle East
settlement.
In a recorded telephone
message to some 1500
American Jewish commu-
nity leaders at the closing
banquet session Saturday
night of the United Jewish
Appeal's annual national
conference held at the Hil-
ton Hotel, Begin also
declared that "we shall con-

duct negotiations face-to-
face with the Egyptian dele-
gation in Cairo." There will,
he added, be "other meet-
ings on various levels, with
one aim, to bring an end to
all the wars between us and
the Arabs."
Leonard R. Strelitz, UJA
general chairman, who pre-
sided at the banquet ses-
sion, said the UJA 1978 cam-
paign goal of $700 million
represented a substantial
increase over the pledge
totals of previous
campaigns.
The keynote address at

the banquet was delivered
by Sen. Daniel P. Moynihan
(D-NY) who hailed Sadat's
visit to Jerusalem as a
breakthrough. He said
Sadat took "the great
gamble" of seeking peace
on his own because be had
seen that U.S. policy in
seeking the Soviet Union's
cooperation in the peace-
making process made his
own position untenable.

.

Moynihan denounced the
U.S.-Soviet joint declaration
of Oct. 1 as a "document
clearly drafted by the
Soviets" . and "we were
informed, in effect, that
they were being asked by us
to return to the. Middle

East, to act in effect a's a
partner in bringing about or
endorcing a settlement
there."
The banquet session cli-
rnaxed three days of work-
shops, seminars and study
sessions reviewing a full
range of issues confronting
Jews in the world today and
exploring problems and
progress in humanitarian
programs in Israel, the
United States and through-
out the world funded
through UJA community
campaigns.
Among the 'highlights was
the fifth annual Louis A.
Pincus Memorial Lecture,
delivered by Abba Eban,

former Foreign Minister of
Israel.
The conference began on
Thursday with the UJA
annual inaugural dinner, a
major fund-raising meeting
at which a total of $13.9 mil-
lion in pledges were made
for the 1978 campaign. This
represents a 25 percent
increase over pledges from
the same contributors last
year.
Ariel Sharon, -Israel's
Minister of Agriculture, tol
participants: "If pea
comes, we will need th
continuing support of the
American Jewish commu-
nity to help make Israel a
special place, a model state
in the world."

Dulzin Asks U.S. Jews for More Aid

NEW YORK (JTA)—Leon
Dulzin, Jewish Agency
treasurer, called upon
American Jewry for
increased effort to help
Israel meet the challenge of
social justice and equality.
He said that, together with
peace, closing the social gap
in Israel is the most impor-
tant task facing Israel and
the Jewish people today.
Addressing more than 300
Jewish leaders at the United
Israel Appeal (UIA) annual
luncheon meeting on
Friday, Dulzin noted that
presently there are more
than 40,000 Israeli families,
who live "in almost sub--
human conditions." The
Israeli government, he,said,
is giving special attention to --
solving the problem but the
help of American Jewry is
needed to overcome the
challenge. -
According to Duizin, a
five-year plan involving $1.2
billion to solve Israel's
acute social ailments is
under way, but this requires
"special efforts" if the chal-
lenge is to be met. "You
have done a lot Iasi year,
but not enough," Dulzin told
the audience. "I hope you
will do more this year."

BRUSSELS (ZINS) — Is-

op a safe, economical nucle-

Some 15.1 percent of LS-

liament reflected "dis-
appointment 'in big power
attempts to reconvene
peace talks.

ham (D-NY) was :given an

ices in furthering friendship
