Israel's Cabinet Dissatisfied
With Elements of Peace Pact

Jewish Book Fair
Opening Saturday

Thousands of books of general and Jewish interest
will be on display when the 27th Annual Jewish Book
Fair opens at-the Jewish Community Center of Met-
ropolitan Detroit Saturday evening. Visitors to the
Fair will have more than 7,000 titles to browse
through, including the works of the Fair's 18 speak-
ers, children's books, as well as Hebrew and Yiddish
titles. The Fair will continue through Nov.19.
Hundreds of volunteers take part in the Annual
Jewish Book Fair. A pre-Book Fair Seminar was held
on November 6 and again on November 9, in which
volunteers reviewed many of the speaker-author
books, as well as new books which will be on sale at
Book Fair. The seminars familiarized the volunteers
with the books which will be sold.
Attorney Louis Nizer will be the opening night
speaker at 8 p.m. Saturday. For a complete Book Fair
schedule, see Page 27.
Nationally, Jewish Book Month will be observed
from Nov. 24 through Dec. 24, under the auspices of
the Jewish Welfare Board.

JERUSALEM (JTA) — Despite the heavy cloak of secrecy that surrounded its 12 hours of deliberations and
the absence of any official confirmation, the general conclusion in Israel is that the Cabinet flatly rejected the
political aspects of the draft peace treaty being negotiated between Israel and Egypt in Washington and also
found fault with many of the military elements.
Reports circulating in Israel said the political clauses of the peace treaty met with fierce disapproval by the
Cabinet and it was decided to reject them at least until Prime Minister Menahem Begin returns to Israel from
North America next week. It is expected that Defense Minister Ezer Weizman and Foreign, Minister Moshe
Dayan, the chief Israeli negotiators, will be called home at that time for further discussion.
These developments indicated that, from the government's point of view, the reports brought from Washing-
ton by Weizman revealed an insignificant degree of progress in the negotiations. The Cabinet's reaction to the
treaty drafts made it virtually certain that they will not be completed before Nov. 19, the first anniversary of
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat's visit to Jerusalem.
Weizman appeared distinctly unhappy with the reaction of his Cabinet colleagues when he boarded
his plane for the U.S. at Ben-Gurion Airport Tuesday. He denied that he was disappointed with the two
days of Cabinet sessions, but he acknowledged that many problemswere raised and that the Cabinet
offered solutions to some and set guidelines for the solution of others. "I am convinced that
we are nearing the signing of a peace 'agree-
ment," Weizman told reporters.
He added, however, "I am convinced that it will
be a mistake if we do not reach an agreement." He
also said that the time has come for the leaders to

Levin State's First Jewish Senator

Michigan voters elected the state's first Jewish U.S. Senator on Tuesday, when former
Detroit City Council President Carl Levin unseated incumbent Republican Sen. Robert
Griffin. At the same time, Democrat Howard Wolpe of Lansing became the second Jewish
Congressman in Michigan history with his victory on Tuesday. In 1883-84, Julius Houseman
of Grand Rapids served in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Levin, 44, a Democrat, was active in the founding of Cong. T'chiyah in downtown Detroit.
His family has a long history of distinguished activity in Detroit and Michigan legan and
Jewish affairs. According to Allen Warsen, honorary president of the Jewish Historical
Society of Michigan, Levin is Michigan's first Jewish Senator, and was Detroit's third Jewish
city council president, behind David Heineman at the beginning of this century and Mel

Carl Levin's uncle, Theodore Levin, was a Federal judge appointed by President Truman.
His brother, Sander, served in the State Senate and was twice the Democratic nominee for
governor of Michigan, although defeated in the elections. His cousin, Charles, served on
