There is an organization
called German-Israel
Friends Society. It has a
membership of approx-
imately 2,500 of which 80
percent are non-Jews. A
great number of govern-
ment leaders belong and its
main function is promoting
exchange programs with Is-
rael as well as public rela-
tions.

community with a rela-
tively small Jewish popula-
tion of 1,700, but very active
in support of Israel projects
and one of the top com-
munities in the country.
Most of the population is
doing very well. However,
they have a fear of what
would happen if an eco-
nomic crisis would occur.
Dusseldorf has a very
active synagogue, Liberal
in nature, but no rabbi.
However, the cantor is ex-
cellent and performs most
needed services.
This is home of Herman
Lewy, chief editor for the
past 20 years of the
Allgemeine Judische
Wochenzeitung. He is one of
the top journalists in the
country. The paper has a
readership of 32,000 of
which 70 percent are non-
Jews.
Lewy left Germany in the
late 1930s and spent time in
a camp, as did his wife. They
were reunited after the war
and he felt it was his duty to
go back to his home and try
and help rebuild the com-
munity. To this day he is not
sorry for making this deci-
sion.

FACE THE FACTS!

We must inform and educate our fellow Americans so
that the facts are known and fully understood, for we
represent what is best for America and what we seek is
in defense of free people everywhere.
We and the American Jewish community cannot
compete dollar for dollar with the vast budget at the
disposal of the Arabs and their friends. But the ZOA has
a special responsibility which makes it imperative that
we do our utmost to defeat the campaign to destroy
Israel and the American-Israel Alliance.
