Jewish Leaders Meet French
Consul on Anti-Semitism

sen d


as a gift this

A delegation of local
communal leaders met with
the French Consul-General
in Detroit last week to share
with him Jewish commu-
nity concerns over recent
anti-Semitic acts in France.
Led by John Shepherd,
immediate past president of
the Jewish Community
Council, the delegation in-
cluded: Joel Tauber, vice
president of the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation; Prof.
Richard Strichartz, chair-
man of the Council's com-
mittee on international
concerns (CIC); John Ne-
mon, former chairman of
the CIC; and Alvin L.
Kushner, Council's execu-
tive director. -
In their meeting with
Jacques Royet, who serves
as French Consul-General
in the Detroit area, the
group expressed concern
that the French govern-
ment has not assumed a
more forthright posture
with respect to extremist
organizations of the right
and left who advocate vio-

Biblical Names

Double Meaning

Royet stated that his gov-
ernment views the matter
as a serious problem and as-
sured the group that their
concerns and comments
would be forwarded to gov-
ernment officials in Paris.

Arabs Seek
Better Jobs
in Israel

Unlike the Jews in Arab
countries, most of the Pales-
tinian Arabs were immig-
rants who came to Palestine
in this century from the
countries of the region, at- .
tracted by the better job op-
portunities and the higher
standard of living created
by Jewish development of
Palestine. Their material
state in Palestine, there-
fore, was limited (compared
to that of many Jews in
Arab lands) — all the more
so, as most of the Palesti-
nian Arabs were not land-
owners but sharecroppers,
hired laborers or profes-
sional people.
