Study finds S. American
Jews indifferent to kehillah

Caracas (JTA) — Jews
throughout Latin America
are deeply disturbed by a
recent study which showed
that while the great major-
ity of Venezuelan Jewish
college youths have
attended Jewish primary
and secondary schools, they
display apathy and indif-
ference to Jewish concerns
and play virtually no part in
Jewish community activi-
ties in this country.
According to Manuel
Tanenbaum, executive di-
rector of the Latin Ameri-
can branch of the World
Jewish Congress (WJC), the
study, headed by prominent
sociologist and economist
Bernardo Kliksberg, focus-
sed on Jewish youths who
graduated from Jewish sec-
ondary schools in Caracas
between 1977 and 1981 and
are presently between 20
and 24 years of age.
The study noted that the
vast majority of Caracas
Jewish youth attend the
Jewish community's all-day
secondary schools and that
93 percent of them go on to
college. The pursuit of
higher education by nine of
every 10 young Venezuelan
Jews is one of the highest
rates in the world.
According to Kliksberg's
study, most of them choose
technological careers; only
a few go into the
humanities. But almost all
are characterized by a pro-
nounced alienation from or-
ganized Jewish community
life. About 75 percent of
Jewish college youth in
Venezuela, in fact, do not
participate in communal ac-
tivities and the majority of
them give "lack of interest"
as their reason.
Against those findings,
Kliksberg noted that the
general situation of the
Venezuelan Jewish com-
munity is one of the most
favorable in Latin America.
It is one of the few Jewish
communities with more
immigrants than emi-
grants. "It is a young com-

munity, with a healthy de-
mographic pyramid. In
addition, historical circum-
stances have strongly fa-
vored the development of
the community. Venezuela
is one of the few countries in
the region with a stable re-
gime and until recently
enjoyed an intense process
of economic development
and social mobility."
The Jewish community,
Kliksberg reported, "was
able to make full use of
these favorable conditions.
It wisely accorded top prior-
ity to Jewish education."

New York (JTA) — Rabbi
Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union, of
American Hebrew Congre-
gations (UAHC), has called
for an easing of the current
strains between blacks and
Jews.
Rabbi Schindler, speak-
ing at a memorial service in
New York last week recal-
ling the Mississippi murder
of three civil rights workers
in 1964, said that "blacks
and Jews need each other,
even as the struggle for jus-
tice needs us both." The
UAHC • president em-
phasized that Americans
"must do everything they
can to make certain that
though (the three) died in
pain and terror, they will
not have died in vain."
The service honored the
memory ofJames Chaney of
Mississippi and Andrew
Goodman and Michael
Schwerner of New York.
Chaney, a 21-year-old
black, and Schwerner, 24,
and Goodman, 20, both
Jews, were shot to death
while they and other volun-
teers were working to regis-
ter blacks to vote. Later,
seven white men were con-
victed of the crime.
