AJCommittee Policy of Quarantining
Nazis Emphasized; Jaffe Is Honored

Richard Maass, president
of the American Jewish
Committee, addressing the
annual meeting of the De-
troit Chapter, at Adat
Shalom Synagogue, June 1,
discussed the Skokie and
other Nazi demonstration
threats and said that the
policy of the AJCommittee
is for quarantining the
Nazis and not to give them a
platform.
He added that this policy
was workable until the era
of television, Nazis being
given notoriety, some prog-

rams having devoted entire
hours for the airing of their
views by Nazis and neo-
Nazis, thereby aiding their
piopaganda tactics.
The Detroit Chapter's
meeting was dedicated to
Miles Jaffe, a former local
president who has risen to
national leadership. Jaffe
was presented with the AJ-
Committee's Human Rights
Award. The presentation
was made by Avern Cohn,
one of Senator Donald
Riegle's nominees for a Fed-
eral judgeship, who re-
viewed the accomplish-
ments of the awardee. He
told of Jaffe's communal
role and paid him honor as a
friend and law partner.

Bumper Sticker
in Israel OKd

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Attorney General Aharon
Barak has ruled that an
employe of the Foreign
Ministry was within her
rights in placing a Peace
Now sticker on her car.

In a letter to Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan,
Barak noted that while
ministry rules forbade
employes from criticizing
government policy in "a
press interview, public
speech, broadcast, news-
paper or book" there was no-
thing in the regulations
that banned bumper stic-
kers with a political mes-
sage.

Bravo!!!

Jaffe's extensive ac-
ceptance speech was an
emphasis on freedom as
the chief objective in
guaranteeing human
rights. He
gave
a
philosophic view of life
affected by the condi-
tions rampant in the
world and took occasion
to refer affectionately to
family and devotedly to
fellow workers in the
causes to which he has
dedicated himself.
The dinner meeting was
devoted to the election of of-
ficers.
Harold Gales, who pres-
ided, was - re-elected pri-
dent. Others elected are:
Robert Amberg, Eugene
Driker, Beatrice Rowe and
Irving Tukel, vice presi-
dents; Douglas Rocs, secret-
ary; and Marge Alpern, tre-
asurer. Harley Selling was

Moshav Seeks
North Americans

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
major campaign has been
launched throughout the
United States and Canada
to attract 120 young North
American families to a new
settlement in Israel.
Called Moshav Edan, the
settlement will be de-
veloped in the Arava Val-
ley, east of the Arava high-
way leading to Eilat, about
65 miles southeast of
Beersheba and is planned
for settlement exclusively
by North Americans.

Binkow, Paul D. Borman,
Leon S. Cohan, Carolyn

Mayer, Marjorie Saulson

Rabbi Milton Rosen-
baum of Temple
Emanu-El gave the invo-
cation and Father Alex
Brunett gave the be-
nediction. Participants in
the program included
Driker, Ms. Alpern and
Walter Shapero who in-
troduced the guest
speaker.
Maass touched on many
national, world and Israeli
problems in his analytical
address outlining AJCom-
mittee policies. Stating that
the organization opposed
the package jet sale mea-
sure that was adopted by
the U.S. Senate, Maass
criticized the references to a
Jewish lobby. He pointed
out that the Jewish efforts
for Israel and in opposition
to the arming of Arab states
that are bent upon Israel's
destruction are human and
that the urgency of protect-
ing Israel should not be
branded as political pres-
sure.
