EEC Actions


THE WHITE HOUSE

The heads of government
of the 10 European Eco-
nomic Community coun-
tries met in Stuttgart in
June and welcomed the
Israel-Lebanon accord.
They decided to lift the eco-
nomic sanctions the EEC
imposed on Israel when it
invaded Lebanon in June
1982.

WASHINGTON

The Karaites were a
Jewish sect founded in the
Eighth Century who be-
lieved in Biblical law but re-
fused to recognize Talmudic
law. The Karaites gained
many followers, but began
to decline in the 10th Cen-
tury.

We know that Rosh Hashanah, the New Year, is a
time for introspection, reflection, and renewal. It is
also a time when members of the Jewish Faith reex-
amine the year past and look to the one ahead in a
spirit of prayer and hopefulness.

Ten days later, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement,
is a solemn period of fasting and penitence which cul-
minates the High Holy Days.

For all of you this is an especially thoughtful season,
and we join fellow Americans in sharing your hopes
and aspirations for peace and human understanding
and for an end to hatred and violence.

As the shofar calls Jews to their places of worship
during this period, our thoughts and warm good
wishes will be with you. May the year 5744 bring
health , prosperity, and peace to you and your
families.

U.S. Jews Were Stirred
by Israel's Independence

By DR. DAVID GEFFEN

World Zionist Press Service

Thursday, April 8, fell
almost a month before the
new State of Israel came
into being, yet on that day
thirty-five years ago the
Synagogue Council of
America called for a "day of
intercession on behalf of our
brothers in Palestine and of
protest against our Gov-
ernment's attempt to nul-
lify the United Nations' de
— cision on Palestine."
Thousands of Jews all
over the United States went
to their synagogues late in
the afternoon to participate
in a service and to express
= their disenchantment with
the apparent flip-flop policy
of Secretary of State Mar-
shall and President Tru-
man.
That day in April set the
stage for the feverish
weeks which followed, ul-
timately leading to the proc-
lamation of statehood.
As the days passed,
many questions were
raised both inside the
Jewish communities and
outside of them. Would
the state be recognized
by the U.S. government?
What would Russia do?
Would the Arab coun-
tries destroy Israel be-
fore it really came into

being? It was even asked
whether another
holocaust might not be in
the making.
In Cincinnati, on May 10,
a community rally was held
to raise funds for the state-
to-be. The guest speaker
was Reuven Dafni of the
Hagana, (Israel's pre-state
defense force). He chal-
lenged those attending with
these stirring words: "We
are locked in one gigantic
struggle for the survival of
Judaism," he stressed. "If
Palestine is crushed, there
is no future for Judaism
anywhere."
A sum of $887,000 was
pledged that night for the
emergency.
As a young boy, I recall
the tension in our household
in Atlanta during the week
before May 14. My parents'
involvement in the Zionist
cause and my grandfather's
lifelong dedication to the
founding of a Jewish state
had left its impression on
me as well. •
On Friday, the 14th of
May, I came home from
school and started to get
ready for Shabat. When my
parents came home from
work, the birth of our new
state was uppermost in
their minds.
