NEW YORK — For the
first time in Jewish history,
a university chair has been
established that will be de-
voted especially to the study
of the Palestinian or
Jerusalem Talmud, thereby
righting a centuries-old his-
toric wrong. Such at least
was the sentiment ex-
pressed June 4 by Prof. Saul
Lieberman of New York,
regarded as the world's
foremost talmudic scholar,
in whose name the chair
was dedicated by Bar-Ilan
at its Silver Jubilee dinner
in New York.
"For too many cen-
turies," Prof. Lieberman
told 500 supporters of

Shown at Bar-flan University's Silver Jubilee cel-
ebration are, from left, Dr. Emanuel Rackman, Prof.
Saul Lieberman, New York philanthropist Hermann
Merkin, and Detroiter Phillip Stollman, a founder of
the university and chairman of its global board.

Bar-Ilan, the Palesti-
nian Talmud has been ig-
nored and neglected in
favor of the Babylonian
Talmud. Now, I pray, this
historic error will at last
be repaired." The Pales-
tinian Talmud — like the
longer and more influen-
tial Babylonian version
— is a compilation of the
records of academic dis-
cussions and judicial
administration of Jewish
law by generations of
scholars and jurists.
Dr. Emanuel Rackman,
president of Bar-Ilan, an-
nounced the chair but did
not name the occupant.
Prof. Lieberman, who is
rector of the Jewish
Theological Seminary, also
said it was a misnomer to
call the Palestinian Talmud
the Jerusalem Talmud, as it
is widely known. If any-
thing, Prof. Lieberman said,
"it is Galilean. Jerusalem
had nothing to do with it."

Europe Claims
Soviet Anti-
Semitism on Rise

-

Caricatures

PARIS (JTA) — The Par-
liament of Europe charged
that anti-Semitism is in-
creasing in the Soviet
Union and blamed the
Soviet authorities. The ac-
cusation was made at a spe-
cial conference last week on
the treatment of Jews in the
USSR.
The conference noted that
Soviet authorities deny
Jews the right to a separate
cultural identity and have
made few concessions to
Jewish demands for the
right to learn Hebrew, Yid-
dish and Jewish emigration
has fallen sharply in recent
months.

Bond Drive Aids
Israeli Economy

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Ephraim Dovrat, a senior
aide to Finance Minister
Yigal Hurwitz, told a group
of visiting American trade
union representatives here
that Israel covers 10 percent
of its foreign currency de-
ficit with the proceeds from
the salds of Israel Bonds.
"Without Israel Bonds
we'd have to borrow sub-
stantial sums at high inter-
est," he said. Despite eco-
nomic difficulties, Israel
was able to reduce its im-
ports, excluding oil, by 25
percent in the first four
months of this year, accord-
ing to Dovrat.
