(Continued from Page 1)
Schumer, in releasing the
letter, noted that the Re-
agan Administration's ef-
forts to lift the ban on U.S.
arms sales to Argentina will
face stiff opposition in the
House because of the
human rights situation in
that country. The sig-
natories included 54 Demo-
crats and 13 Republicans.
The Congressmen noted
that they "welcome the
commitment" the Viola
government has made to
strengthen the democratic
process in Argentina but
expressed their "particular
concern for the continued
well-being and . safety of the
one-half million-member
Jewish community in
Argentina. They said they
"have been deeply disturbed
by attacks on a number of
Jewish institutions, includ-
ing the bombing of the
Jerusalem synagogue in
Buenos Aires and the desec-
ration of tombstones in the

Liniers Jewish Cemetery,
in the summer and fall of
1980."
The letter said, "We are
alarmed at the marked
increase in the public
availability of anti-
Semitic and Nazi litera-
ture; the journals
`Papeles' and `Cabildo'
are two of the most bla-
tant examples of this dis-
turbing development. We
are also concerned that
no information has been
forthcoming about the
fate of several hundred
or more Jewish citizens
who have been listed as
`disappeared' since
1976."
The letter also strongly
urged the Argentine gov-
ernment "to exercise
greater vigilence in actu-
ally combatting anti-
Semitic acts and in re-
peatedly condemning anti-
Semitic propaganda in
whatever form they take.
The continued livelihood of

the Jewish community in
Argentina is of greatest im-
portance to us as elected
representatives of the
people of the U.S. and to the
citizens of our entire nation.
We trust that you will take
all necessary steps to foster
an atmosphere in which this
community may live and
flourish without fear."
The
Congressmen
stressed that "a deeply
committed defense of
human rights and human
dignity by your government
in Argentina will greatly
contribute to improving re-
lations between our two
countries."

clude $135,750 originating
from a federal block grant.
Under the National and

tion central services.
A total of $700,000 was
approved for Capital
Needs Committee distri-
bution, with that sum
going into a reserve fund
for current and future
capital projects.
Federation Executive
Committee Chairman Mar-
tin E. Citrin noted that
while it is still too early to
assess the full effects of fed-
eral government budget
cutting on our service agen-
cies, "we do know that some
number of individuals who
have been receiving gov-
ernment funds in the past
will be approaching our
agencies for assistance once
those funds run out."
Citrin commended the
budgeting and planning di-
visions, who deliberated
and reviewed budget re-
quests, for their commit-
ment to the community. "No
process involves so many
people for so many hours,"
he said.
Chairman of the coor-
dinative Conference of Di-
vision Chairmen is Dr. Con-
rad L. Giles. Division
chairmen and associate
chairmen are Mark E.

Page, Hugh W. Greenberg
and Herbert P. Sillman,

serves on the Conference of
Division Chairmen.

They were protesting what
they perceived as Commen-
tary's and the AJCommit-
tee's failure to acknowledge
the seriousness of the prob-
lem of anti-Semitism in
Argentina, and their un-
willingness to take an ag-
ressive stand against it.
The protesters were par-
ticularly concerned with
Commentary's support of
the Reagan Administra-
tion's foreign policy, and its
support of right-wing mili-
tary regimes such as that in
Argentina.
The rally was prompted
by the current debate
within the Jewish commu-
nity over Jacobo Timer-
man's book "Prisoner With-
out a Name, Cell Without a
Number," which alleges
widespread official anti-
Semitism in Argentina.
The demonstration was
initiated by the Jewish
Socialist Bund-Tsukunft,
and endorsed by a number

of Jewish and non-Jewish
organizations, including
the Generation After, the
Anielewicz
Circle,
Hashomer •
Hatzair,
Habonim, the Brooklyn
Chapter of the New Jewish
Agenda, and the New York
local of the Democratic
Socialist Organizing Corn-
mittee.
