Conceding that the
gains required time to be
integrated into a society
that has been predomin-
antly Ashkenazic, Dr.
Fishman said that the
army, where there is total
equality, has been and
remains a factor in
equalizing all elements,
and that Sephardi Jews
rise high in the profes-
sions and in industry.

many newspapers mis-
represent the true character
of the Israel situation.
According to the guest
scholar and noted leader
who has lived some 50 years
in Israel, there already are
some 25 percent of mar-
riages between Sephardi
and Ashkenazi Jews, and
whatever may have pointed
to rifts is beginning to dis-
appear rapidly.
He ascribed some of the
divisiveness to political
manipulations, to patron-
age, and his contention is
that the unity in Israel's
ranks is far from threatened
as implied in the recent in-
terpretations of the existing
conditions.
Rabbi Fishman's em-
phasis on Israel's needs is on
a general basis, to encour-
age Jews living as Jews,
thereby eliminating the
confusions which irritate
many of the issues in Jewish
life.

Equal Status
for MDA Emblem

NEW YORK — American
Red Cross meetings in Bal-
timore will display either
the American Red Cross
emblem, or those of the
ARC, the Arab Red Cres-
cent and Magen David
David Adom at its meetings
in the future.
The American Jewish
Committee advised the Bal-
timore units that they were
violating Red Cross policy
in displaying the Red Cres-
cent at meetings without
displaying Israel's Magen
David Adom emblem.
The policy was pioneered
three years ago by Duane
Johnson, director of the
Southeastern Michigan
Chapter of the American
Red Cross.

NCJW Puppet

NEW YORK — An in-
novative puppet show,
entitled "I Can Be a Volun-
teer," was recently
launched by the National
Council of Jewish Women

Designed by NCJW's Na-
tional Voluntarism Com-
mittee, the puppet show
explores the idea that con-
cern for others helps foster
pride in one's self and is
aimed at children in pri-
mary grades. Accompany-
ing the show is an activity
