With President

group of Hasidic rabbinical
leaders, in what was de-
scribed as the first time any
President had ever received
such a delegation, that
Hasidic Jews are making a
lasting contribution to
urban centers to stabilize
neighborhoods and com-
munities, a Hasidic
spokesman told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency Wed-
nesday.

ful as common sense, their
rarity, their novelty, and

the nobleness of their ob-
jects make some compensa-
tion, and render them the
admiration of mankind.
