synagogue's return and
other assurances relating to
Nicaraguan Jews were
made by Antonio Jarquin,
the Nicaraguan ambas-
sador to the United States,
at a meeting with six ADL
leaders in Washington. The
diplomat acknowledged
during the meeting that a
mistake had been made
when authorities seized the
synagogue following the
July 1979 Sandinist revolu-
tion.
In response to Jarquin's
remarks, Kenneth Bialkin,
ADL's national chairman,
stated that the "record of
the government of Nicara-
gua will be determined
by actions, not assertions
. . Nicaragua should do
what is right, just and fair,
acting on the basis of facts."
The meeting was held
to discuss charges made
by ADL last May that the

Selihot in NY,
Western Wall

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
"telecommunications" link
tied Jews here to a congre-
gation 6,000 miles away at
the Western Wall in
Jerusalem on the eve of the
Jewish New Year 5744. The
two groups simultaneously
blew the Shofar and sent
each other wishes for peace
in the world, it was reported
by JWB.
At midnight last Satur-
day, when penitential
prayer services were re-
cited, Rabbi Joseph Simckes
blew the shofar at Hollis
Hills Jewish Center in
Queens. Simultaneously,
U.S. Navy Chaplain Arnold
Resnicoff, stationed with
the Sixth Fleet, blew the
shofar at the Western Wall.
The time in Israel was 6
a.m. Sunday.
Simckes and Resnicoff,
who are first cousins, gave
each other best wishes for
peace throughout the world,
those wishes also represent-
ing their respective congre-
gations. Simckes made con-
tact with Israel by dialing a
telephone number at the
Wall. The entire proceeding
was amplified so that each
congregation could hear the
other.
