"Let All Who Are Hungry Come And Eat ...
And Celebrate The Passover."

The traditions of Passover are not
only ancient but beautiful. Just as im-
portant, they are as relevant today as
- they were centuries ago. And inviting all
those who are hungry to come and eat
has become a hallmark of the Jewish
way of life.
Preparing fine Jewish food has al-
ways been the hallmark of Manischewitz.

For almost a century, we have been
helping families honor Passover with an
array of delicious products specially pre-
pared for this festive occasion. And we
like to tee' that, in some way, we add to
the joyousness of the holiday.
Happy Passover!

Hughes Award.
"A strong credible
America is also an indis-
pensible incentive for a
peaceful resolution of dif-
ferences between Israel and
her neighbors. America has
never flinched from its
commitment to the state of
Israel — a commitment
which remains unshaka-
ble," the President declared.
The President's ad-
dress also focused on the
"rich diversity of our
free, pluralistic society."
He said that while the
final policy decisions are
determined by Congress
and the President, "every
citizen and every citizens
group is guaranteed the
right to speak out — and
must be encouraged to do
so without fear of re-
prisal or defamation."
Reagan's speech ap,
peared as an attempt to
allay concern in the Ameri-
can Jewish community
which had been disturbed
by the charges of dual loy-
alty and the anti-Israel
overtones which surfaced
during last year's debate
over the Administration's
plan to sell AWACS recon-
naissance planes and other
military hardware to Saudi
Arabia.
"No group should be bul-
lied into silence by racial or
ethnic slurs, or the fear of
them," the President said.
"The language of hate — the
obscenity of anti-Semitism
and racism — must have no
part in the national
dialogue."
Reagan interspersed his
remarks with several refer-
ences to secular and reli-
gious leaders, including
Anne Frank, a victim of the
Holocaust, who, the
President noted, wrote in
July 1944: "In spite of ev-
erything, I still believe
people are really good at
heart."
While the President
was inside receiving his
award from the NCCJ,
making him the fourth
President to receive it,

Australia Official
to Visit Israel

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Foreign Minister Anthony
Street of Australia will pay
an official visit to Israel
Sunday-Tuesday.
On his agenda are meet-
ings with President Yitzhak
Navon, Premier Menahem
Begin and Knesset Speaker
Menahem Savidor, as well
as working sessions with his
host, Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir, and their top
aides.
Street will also visit the
Australian unit attached to
the Multinational Force
and Observers (MFO) in
Sinai. From Israel he flies
on to Egypt and will also
visit other states in the area
during his trip.
Shamir is hoping to visit
Australia as part of a swing
through friendly Asian
countries during this year.

hour traffic, singing,

banners protesting the
Administration's foreign
policy actions in Central
America and his budget
proposals.
Earlier in the day, just
hours before Reagan ar-
rived in New York, the New
Jewish Agenda, a newly
formed progressive organ-
ization which claims 2,000
members throughout the
country, held a press con-
ference with more than a
dozen Christian and Jewish
leaders protesting the pre-
sentation of the Hughes
Award to the President.
Declaring that "it is di-
rectly contrary to
humanitarian and religious
values to cut essential social
services . . . (for) a wasteful
military budget," the
statement released by the
organization and lay lead-
ers continued: "As Chris-
tians and Jews, we condemn
the Reagan policies of slash-
ing spending for human
needs, lavishing tax breaks
on the very wealthy, starv-
ing education programs and

creating widespread unem-
ployment."
At the same time, Rabbi
Arnold Wolf, of the Kam
Isaiah Temple in Chicago,
protesting the award to Re-
agan, returned to the NCCJ
the James Yard Brother-
hood Award which he was
presented with in 1962. "If
Reagan is a humanitarian,"
Wolfe declared "I am not."
