Navy Captures 3 Terrorists

Israel by sinking a rubber
dinghy carrying terrorists
near Rosh Hanikra off the
Israel-Lebanon coast.

According to the army
communique, the terrorists
fired a salvo of rockets at the
Israeli boat and the Israeli
crew returned fire.

One of the occupants of
the dinghy was hit and fell
overboard. He was declared
as missing. Three other ter-
rorists on the vessel were
captured and questioned.

The dinghy, which was
sunk, appeared to have
sailed directly from Leba-
non and was not, as in prev-
ious incidents, launched
from a mother ship.

Deutsch read the text of a
resolution by the Sinai
board in honor of Dr. Priver,
which concluded:
"Be it further resolved
that a copy of these sen-
timents be spread upon
the board minutes of
Sinai Hospital of Detroit
so that in its history his
(Dr. Priver's) name shall
be recorded as one of the
most important parts of
the growth and develop-
ment of the institution
during its first quarter-
Especially appropriate
for the occasion were the
reminiscences of Max
Fisher. He recited a list of
early participants in the
creation of Sinai Hospital,

the first presidents, the
community directors, the
noted physicians, who had
important roles in the es-
tablishment of the Hospital.
Fisher, whose association
with Dr. Priver dates back
to the hospital's infancy, re-
called events and reminis-
cences of the nearly three
decades of Dr. Priver's dedi-
cation to Sinai Hospital. He
spoke of Dr. Priver's
achievements as the hospi-
tal's founding director and
of his "unitiring service to
the community."
He commented on Dr.
Priver's leadership during
the growth of the hospital,
his role as a liaison between
the physicians and the
board of trustees, his civic
activities as well as the con-
tributions of the Priver fam-
He congratulated him
also as the recipient of an
award presented this
summer by the Michigan
Hospital Association: the
Joseph R. Homminga
Memorial Award given
annually to salute per-

sons in health care ad-
ministration for their
contributions toward the
betterment of hospital
care in Michigan.
Speaking for the medical
staff, Dr. Eli Brown, chief of
anesthesiology and former
chief of staff, called Dr.
Priver the ideal physician, a
dedicated teacher and the
complete physician.
Dr. Priver's response to
the evening's encomia was
deeply moving:
"My years of service were
enriched by the loyal
friends and colleagues for
whose support and under-
standing I shall be forever
grateful. They number in
the hundreds and now are
spread throughout the
land," Dr. Priver stated.
He added, "I welcome a
respite from the daily
pressures which are
characteristic of our
burgeoning institution
and the hectic climate in
which it functions. I shall
miss the opportunity the
position has afforded for
almost 28 years to serve
the community you re-
"I'm grateful to the hun-
dreds of friends with whom I
served on committees, in
board sessions, at Federa-
tion, in sister agencies, at
civic and social functions,
all of whom have befriended
me in my past years in
"You have my everlasting
gratitude for the privilege of
having served a fine com-
munity," Dr. Priver said.
Dr. Richard Hertz recited
the invocation and a toast to
the honoree was given by
George Stutz, who chaired
the committee of ar-
rangements for the tes-

Case Against Archbishop Trifa Deemed
Harmful to Jewish-Christian Relations

"The fact that the Orthodox
Church in America has not
seen fit to convene an
ecclesiastical county in the
case of Archbishop Valerian
Trifa is the single most
painful aspect of Jewish-
Christian relations in the
United States today," ac-
cording to Dr. Michael Wys-
chogrod, senior consultant
on interreligious affairs of
the Synagogue Council of
America (SCA), the repre-
sentative body of the major
branches of Judaism in the
United States.
Trifa heads the Roma-
nian Orthodox Episcopate
of America which is under
the canonical jurisdiction of
the Orthodox Church in
America, the second largest
Orthodox body in the U.S.
The Greek Orthodox
Church headed by Ar-
chbishop Takovos is the
largest Orthodox Church in
this country.
Trifa has been accused
of leading a Romanian
Fascist group during
World War II and or-
ganizing a pogrom in
Bucharest in January

1941, in which hundreds
of Jews were killed. He is
scheduled to go on trial
soon in the Federal Dis-
trict Court in Detroit on

charges of having with-
held important informa-
tion in his immigration
and naturalization appli-

The Orthodox Church in
America," Wyschogrod said
today, has taken the posi-
tion that it will take no ac-
tion unless Bishop Trifa is
convicted in the Detroit
"For a church to abdicate
its religious responsibility
to investigate grave charges
against one of its bishops
and to leave it to a secular
court to settle this matter, is
to ignore the obligation of
religious bodies to adhere to
their own teachings. Canon
law exists so that churches
can govern themselves in-
stead of being governed by
secular authorities."
Wyschogrod said that for
over a year, a committee re-
presenting the Synaoguge
Council and the Orthodox
Church in America (OCA)
examined documents and

heard witnesses on the Trifa
In May of this year, the
SCA called on other Or-
thodox Churches and
non-Orthodox Christian
bodies in the U.S. to
speak out against the
continuing scandal of
Bishop Trifa's holding
office in a major Ameri-
can church.
More recently, the SCA
officially requested the
Standing Conference of Ca-
nonical Orthodox Bishops,
headed by Takovos, to take
up the Trifa case.

Repentant Nazi

— Gabriel Ruiz, the former
editor of "El Caudillo," a
pro-Nazi publication which
was subsidized by the Peron
government from 1973 to
1975, and who used to refer
to Hitler as "mein fuhrer"
and was a rabid anti-
Semite, recently visited the
DATA offices to say that he
was disgusted with his Nazi
past and apologized for hav-
ing advocated pogroms
against Jews.
