An open letter to the members of The Council of
Orthodox Rabbis from some of the Amalgamated
Meat Cutters and Butchers Union AFL-CIO Local
632.
Approximately three years ago letters were sent
to you as well as other Jewish organizations which
informed you that two of the kosher meat markets
had refused to. become unionized. These two
markets were also hiring non-union help. These
actions are still taking place to date. We also have
been informed that some of your members are
recommending that consumers patronize these
non-union markets.
All these actions are detrimental to our entire
union and the members of this union, whose jobs
and livelihoods are at stake, are appalled and
confused by your actions.
Perhaps for all concerned it would be best if you
were to confine your activities to which you are
best suited.

We urge the_ general public to purchase their
goods only in union markets.
. In your ad of July 30th in The Jewish News, you
list Duben and Adler Farmer Jack Market. For
clarification, Mr. Duben and Mr. Adler are mem-
bers of Local 632 and are employees of Farmer
Jack Market. They in no way are owners or oper-
ators of the kosher meat department. You are
misleading the public by putting their names in as
such.
Farmer Jack Inc. is the owner of the entire oper-
ation, including kosher and non-kosher meats.

Editor, The Jewish News:
In his letter in the July 23
issue of The Jewish News
concerning Maryann
Mahaffey's candidacy for
Congress, Louis Panush de-
clared his refusal to accept
Mrs. Mahaffey's repeated
and vigorous pronounce-
ments of support for Israel,
her opposition to PLO ter-
rorism and her 34-year re-
cord of advocacy and aid to
the - Israeli struggle for in-
dependence and security.
Panush clings adamantly
to suspicions about
Maryann's loyalty, suspi-
cions based on an inaccu-
rate Detroit Free Press re-
port of a meeting at which
Maryann was present. The
inaccuracy is attested to by
several eyewitnesses. The
latter, by the way, are
Jewish.
The real test of loyalty to
Israel, according to Panush,
is complete, unhesitating
and unquestioned ac-
ceptance of and concurrence
with each and every nuance
of interpretation on current
events in the Mideast as he
perceives them. These in-
clude probing Maryann's
attitude toward the au-
tonomy provisions, toward
Israel's presence in Judea,
Samaria and Gaza toward
Lebanon and the Syrian oc-
cupying forces and other is-
sues.
Maryann has re-
sponded to these and
other similar questions in
a number of meetings
with Jewish organiza-
lions, Jewish leaders and
supporters. In the past,
hundred _ s of thousands of
people have voted for
and thousands have
worked on the cam-
paigns of Maryann
Mahaffey. Many are
Jews. She has received
financial contributions
from many Jews, includ-
ing such community
leaders as Alan
Schwartz, Max Fisher
and Avern Cohn as well
as hundreds of others
who certainly do not con-
sider her to be anti-Israel.
I, a Jew, have been mar-
ried to and lived with
Maryann for lnore than 32
years. Half my family was
killed by the Nazis in the
Holocaust, including a
young cousin who was a
courageous part of the Re-
sistance.
I was wounded twice and
recieved a Distinguished
Flying Cross in fighting the
Nazis. We have family in a
kibutz in Israel, whom we
have visited. We raised our
daughter to be proud of her
Jewish heritage and to
celebrate Jewish holidays
in our home with Jewish
friends.
I cite this background

The Jewish calendar is
based on both the lunar and
solar cycles.

only to make more ridicul-
ous the publicly-circulated
charges that my wife is
anti-Israel and, as reported
to our election campaign
workers, even anti-Semitic.
Maryann's hallmark in
her private as well as her
public life is her sensitiv-
ity to people, her integ-
rity, honesty and sincer-
ity. As a social worker for
more than 35 years, she
has supported the high-
est principles of social
work — including the
right of people to self-
determination and
strong opposition to
ethnic discrimination of
any kind.
Her ancestors came to
America before the Ameri-
• can Revolution, partici-
pated in the Revolution and
the Civil War. She herself is
a doer and fighter, not just a
politician who mouths what
people want to hear. She re-
presents and reflects the
best in American traditions
and values.
These are difficult, criti-
cal times for Israel. We
should all be striving in
every way to encourage the
broadest support for her
legitimate efforts to achieve
a just and lasting peace in
the Mideast. This battle for
the minds and hearts of
America requires all the al-
lies we can muster.
You don't win friends, Mr.
Panush, by insisting that
one can qualify as a suppor-
ter and ally of Israel only by
passing your personal lit-
mus test of absolute con-
formity with your views.
Those requirements are not
demanded even of Israelis,
including those on the
battlefield, nor should they
be here.

Indian Jew
Defends Israel

NEW YORK — The head
of the organized Jewish
community of India took the
floor of a UN conference on
human rights in Asia to

delegates of 2,000 years of
Jews persecution.
Ezra Kolet, president of
the Council of Indian Jewry,
represented the World
Jewish Congress at the UN
conference held last month
in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The

rangements for the promo-
tion and protection of
human rights in the Asian
region."
