E. Berlin Residents Struggle to Retain Their Jewishness

BONN — Although the
Jewish community in East
Berlin has dwindled to less
than 350 persons, it does not
look as if it's dying, accord-

invariably followed; sufficient resources would
be accumulated to ensure the future of the
young Jewish State on a sound basis of land

During the past three
years, the synagouge has
been completely refur-
bished and a new library
has been built in an effort to
keep Jewish culture alive.
Of the 170,000 Jewish
people who made Berlin one
of Europe's biggest and liv-
liest Jewish centers in the
early 1930s, only 5,000 re-
assembled in the city follow-
ing World War II. With
many of the remaining resi-
dents more than 80 years
old, the population figure
could be down to 150 within

The NCC, PLO and Reagan

You may want your bequest to be
dedicated to afforestation, to a village, a
Nachlah, to a children's play area, to perpetual
yahrzeit or kaddish, or to some form of
permanent tribute in the names of persons
dear to you.

It was a remarkable study
in moral contrasts. On the
very day that the National
Council of Churches
adopted its Middle East pol-
icy statement, President-
elect Ronald Reagan held a
press conference during
which the declared his
views on the Middle East.
On Nov. 6, the NCC's
general board called on the
PLO either to amend its
1968 National Covenant or

statement recognizing Is-
rael as a sovereign state and

for Immigration?

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — Ac-
cording to figures published

gration to Israel increased

Minister Menahem Begin.

showed: 1974 - 33,000; 1975
- 20,000; 1976 - 20,000; 1977
- 22,000; 1978 - 28,000; 1979
- 39,000.
Emigration figures for
the same years were: 1974 -
19,000; 1975 - 20,000; 1976
- 13,000; 1977 - 14,600; 1978
- 12,000; 1979 - 7,900.
