Reagan Names Jew as Envoy

By JOSEPH POLAKOFF

WASHINGTON —
Brooklyn-born Abraham
Katz, whose late father was
a Hebrew teacher in Man-
hattan and whose mother
was a regular contributor to
the Jewish Daily Forward,
is President Reagan's
representative with the
rank of ambassador to
Europe's Organization for
Economic Cooperation and
Development in Paris.
Katz, who has had a dis-
tinguished career in the
U.S. Foreign Service for 26
years, is one of a half-dozen
American Jews chosen by
President Reagan for posts
with ambassadorial rank
either as envoys in capitals
of nations or to major inter-
national organizations.
The OECD is considered a
major overseas assignment
of primary importance to
the United States since the
International Energy
Agency is associated with it.
While waiting to testify
before the Senate
Foreign Relations Com-
mittee which speedily
approved him, Katz, now
55, proudly spoke of his
late parents and their
contributions to Jewish
life. His father, Alexan-
der, taught Hebrew at the
Hebrew Teachers Semi-
nary in New York. His
mother, the late Zina
Rabinowitz Katz, wrote
stories and novels in Yid-
dish and Hebrew while
contributing regularly to
the Forward until shortly
before her death in 1965.
Ambassador Katz studied
at Herzliya High School in
New York and at Hebrew
University in Jerusalem
where he specialized in
Judaica in 1946-1947. A
graduate of Brooklyn Col-
lege in 1949, he received his
doctorate in 1968 from Har-
vard where he studied
Soviet affairs and had been
a fellow in its Center for In-
ternational Affairs.
Besides Hebrew,Katz has
mastered Spanish, Russian
and French.

Ill. Congressman

Fights Anti-Semitism

In an essay entitled "Bury
the Hate of Poison," a Con-
gressman from Illinois has
expressed in candid terms
his experiences with anti-
Semitism and his revulsion
to it.
The essay appeared in
Congressman Paul Simon's
weekly letter to his con-
stituents in southern Il-
linois. It perhaps would
have gone unnoticed beyond
the confines of his congres-
sional district were it not for
a few words far down in the
text. A mezuza, he wrote, is
on the door of his home in
Carbondale, Ill.
Simon bought the mezuza
20 years ago at a synagogue
in Springfield, Ill.
"We lived in a small
town — a fine town in
many respects but with a
community attitude that
We thought was not the
best. The second reason
was that I happen to be
Lutheran. and any 'Wife is

Catholic. A nation that
was half-Lutheran and
half-Catholic had perpet-
rated - this horrible deed
(the Holocaust) against
Jews."
Simon, the son and
brother of Protestant cler-
gymen, is in his fourth term
.in Congress and a consis-
tent supporter of Israel.
