Since the U.S. Census
Bureau does not identify
Jews as an ethnic group and
therefore does not collect
data on Jewish populations,
the report points out that its
figures are provided
primarily through an an-
nual survey of Jewish fed-
erations. Formal population
studies are conducted in
some communities, while
others estimate roughly on
the basis of lists of known
Jewish households.

Terrorists Hit
Rome Synagogue

ROME (JTA) — A hand
grenade was hurled at the
central entrance of the main
synagogue here last week.
There was little damage.
The terrorists were not
identified.
The synagogue has been
the target of anti-Semitic
acts during the past
months. Several times,
small groups of neo-Nazis -
passed by the synagogue
during services shouting
out Nazi slogans.
Security guards have
been posted on occasion out-
side the synagogue to deter
neo-Nazis from disturbing
services.
The Jewish community
feels that Jewish organiza-
tions and institutions in
Rome do not receive suffi-
cient protection from the
Italian police-.

the American Jewish
Committee in association
with the Jewish Publication
Society of America. The
editors are Milton Himmel-
farb and David Singer.
A 100-page article in the
Year Book is entitled "A
Century of Jewish History
— 1881-1981: The view
from America." It was writ-
ten by historian and
Holocaust authority Lucy
Dawidowicz.
She writes that the his-
tory of Jews in the U.S. la'
been basically of good time
of expectations realized.
"The U.S. was the first
country in the world to give
the Jews political equality
and religious liberty," she
wrote, "enabling them, as
no other nation-state had,
fully to exercise their rights
as citizens and, at the same
time, freely to observe their
religion, sustain their tradi-
tions and perpetuate their
culture."
