America expressed concern
over the widespread break-

which, he said has reached
Rabbi Walter S.
Wurzburger, president of
the Orthodox rabbinical or-
ganization, made his re-
marks at the Council's spe-
cial three-day Torah convo-
cation at the Sheraton
Heights Inn in New Jersey.
He cited statistics of a

which indicated that alarm-
ing numbers of Jewish mar-
riages are being dissolved
and in some areas of the
country is approaching the
"shocking" rate of four out
of 1& marriages.
"It behooves us to con-
front the problem boldly
and to acknowledge it as
a threat to the vibrancy
and durability w,hich has
Jewish family life," he
Wurzburger noted that
"until a decade ago divorce
was such an unusual occur-

that it was considered
something of a scandal."

new organization has been
set up, Black Americans for
Peace in the Middle East, to
provide educational mate-
rial about Israel in the black
community, Bayard Rustin,
the noted civil rights leader,
Rustin, who is director of
the organization's parent
group, BASIC , - (Black
Americans to Support Israel
-Committee), said that
BASIC will devote itself to
political activities in sup-
port of Israel in Congress
and at the United Nations.

BASIC a tax exemption last
year, saying its work was
not education but "advo-
cacy." Black Americans for
Peace in the Middle East
will distribute pamphlets,
provide - speakers, organize
tours to the Mideast and en-
gage in other educational- -
-type work, Rustin said.
