THE imilbif twisit

Radio Free Europe Probe
Is Sought by Dr. Kremer

NEW YORK — Dr.
Char!es H. Kremer,
president of the Committee
to Bring Nazi Criminals to
Justice in the U.S.A., Inc.,
has sent a letter of com-
plaint about Radio Free
Europe and Radio Liberty to
the House Judiciary and
Foreign Affairs committees.
Dr. Kremer charges that
two Jewish employees of the
U.S.-run radio stations
were fired last year after
they complained to Con-
gressmen about the airing

of broadcasts by Archbishop
Valerian Trifa.
Trifa is accused of incit-
ing a pogrom in Bucharest,
Romania in 1941 which led
to the deaths of hundreds of
Jews. A trial over the cir-
cumstances of his entry and
naturalization in the U.S. is
pending in federal court in
Detroit.
Dr. Kremer alleged in his
letter that several em-
ployees of Radio Free
Europe have Nazi ties and
requested an investigation.

New Education Agency Planned

By BORIS SMOLAR

(Editor-in-chief Emeritus, JTA)
(Copyright 1980, JTA, Inc.)

A new and very impor-
tant turn in Jewish educa-
tion in the U.S. and Canada
is now in the making. A
community-funded na-
tional agency will be estab-
lished soon to strengthen
the activities of national
organizations involved in
local Jewish educational
work. It will bring about
greater involvement of the
local Jewish federations.
The new agency — to be
known as the North Ameri-

NO, this is not a SALE,
it is just that all of our

can Association for Jewish
Education Services — will
be governed primarily by
lay leadership. It will
supplant the present Gov-
erning Council of the Na-
tional Association for
Jewish Education, which is
comprised principally of
representatives delegated
by local and national bodies.
Local federations and
bureaus of Jewish educa-
tion will help in the nomi-
nation process.
Until the new plan is put
into effect, the Federations
will continue the present
level of support to the
American Association for
Jewish Education, with due
consideration to the impact
of inflation. Increases in
budgetary support will de-
velop in consultation with
the Large Cities Budgeting
Conference, which is an in-
strumentality of the federa-
tions designed to review
budgets of agencies receiv-
ing allocations.
Leaders of federations,
of synagogues and of
Jewish educational in-
stitutions profoundly
share the concern about
the decline in Jewish
school enrollment. Esti-
mated enrollment in all
types of Jewish schools
— with youngsters re-
ceiving some kind of
institutionally-sponsored
Jewish education — was
357,107 last year, accord
ing to the American
Association for Jewish
Education. This is 40 per-
cent less than the peak
enrollment in 1961-1962.
Since then, enrollment
has gone down with
every year.
Whether this was due to
indifference on the part of
parents to give their chil-
dren a Jewish education, or
to growth in the number of
intermarriages, or to the
declinging birthrate among
Jews — the fact is, that the
leadership of the federa-
tions together with the
leaders of the AAJE decided
that the time has come to do
something about the con-

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The secretary of the
Jerusalem Workers Coun-
cil, Nissan Harpaz, has con-
ducted a four-day tour of Po-
land giving lectures in He-
brew to groups of students
on the state of Israel. This is
the first time such lectures
have been given since dip-
lomatic relations between
Israel and Poland were se-
vered in 1967.
Harpaz, who serves as the
vice chairman of the World
Hebrew Society, was in-
vited to Poland as a guest of
the University of Warsaw.
Upon his return to Israel,
Harpaz said that the Polish
government is lending as-
sistance to the remnants of
the Jewish community
which remains in that coun-
try. He pointed particularly
to the Jewish weekly
"Folks-Shmoti," the Yid-
dish theater and the Center
for Research of Jewish His-
tory.

stant loss in enrollment of
children in the Jewish
school system, except in the
day schools.
The basic functions of the
new agency will embrace:
strong promotion of the im-
portance of Jewish educa-
tion for Jewish family life
and Jewish continuity;
helping federations and
Jewish educational in-
strumentalities to deal with
community-wide education
concerns; provide compe-
tent guidance and assis-
tance in analyzing commu-
nity problems related to
Jewish education.
