Envoy Promotes Interfaith Ties

By HEIDI PRESS

Imagine a soft-spoken,
grandfatherly, proper
British geVeman. Could
there be a beeter shaliakh to
promote interfaith under-
standing?
Probably not. That's most
likely the reason that Lu-
cien Harris was sent to this
country as_a representative
of the Israel Interfaith
Committee.
During his visit to Detroit
this week, arranged
through the cooperation of

the Detroit Zionist Federa-
tion and Mercy College of
Detroit, Harris spoke of the
activities of the interfaith
committee.
He said the major goal
of the committee is to
promote peace and
friendship between the
"denominations
Jewish, Christian' and
Moslem."
To achieve this goal, Har-
ris said the committee spon-
sors seminars, lectures, vis-
its and acts as an "educa-
tional catalyst" whose job is
to "educate the educator."
Comprised of 50 volun-
teers, who he called "opin-
ion molders," the committee
sends emissaries to the U.S.
and Western Europe to
promote friendship by
speaking primarily to
Christian groups.
While in the U.S., he will
go to Chicago, Houston and
San Francisco, where he
will be the guest of the
California Christian Com-
mittee for Israel. He also
will represent Israel at the
Rotary International Insti-
tute in Boca Raton, Fla.
Harris said the commit-
tee aims at "deepening
the relationships be-

tween Jews and Chris-
tians.
"It is understood easily by
Jews and Christians. It is
less familiar to Moslems."
He added. that M6slems
don't work as actively in
creating face-to-face rela-
tionships as Christians and
Jews do..
Asked what he hoped the
future would bring for the
interfaith committee, Har-
ris said "the active partici-
pation of Arab intellectu-
als.".
Another role of the com-
mittee Harris said, is to act
as a liaison for foreign vis-
itors. He recalled an inci-
dent in which a Greek Or-
thodox priest was coming to
Israel and wanted to meet
his church's patriarch. Har-
ris said he arranged the
meeting for the priest, who
was so appreciative of the
gesture, he asked Harris. to
escort his tour.
Harris said often the
committee sets up a panel
of speakers for a
question-and-answer
evening for visiting
groups, particularly for
Christians.
Harris is the director of
the North American Desk,
World Zionist Organization
External Relations De-
partment in Jerusalem.
Educated at.Oxford, Har-
ris was an information offi-
cer at the Jewish Agency in
London under the leader-
ship of Dr. Chaim Weiz-
mann. He was parliamen-
tary secretary to the late
Golda Meir and parliamen-
tary assistant to the late
Mr. Jack Geri, minister of
Trade and industry.
For 25 years he was affil-
iated with the Hadassah
Medical Organization.
Harris was elected
president of the
Jerusalem Rotary Club
in 1968 and elected gov-
ernor of Israel District
199 of Rotary Interna-
tional in 1975-1976.
He was honorarT consul-
tant to the president of Rot-
ary International (1977-
`1978) for Europe, North Af-
rica and the Eastern
Mediterranean. Currently,
he is a member of the Rotary
International Consultative
Group on Public Relations.

Palestinian Team
Touring France

PARIS (JTA) -- A "Pales-
tinian national soccer
team" defeated a French
team last week in a game in
a public stadium on the out-
skirts of Paris. It is the first
time that the Palestinian
team is touring Western
Europe and playing local
teams.
Several hundred people
attended the match, but
there were no demonstra-
tions or disturbances. The
Palestinian team, whose
tour was organized by a
leftwing sports federation to
promote "Palestinian sports
and cultural activities,"
was to play three games in
France.

Laws were made to be
