New York — (JTA) The
New York Philharmonic
Orchestra has dropped
plans to perform in
Malaysia after a stream of
protest from American
Jewish leaders and political
figures here to the philhar-
monic's bowing to the re-
quest of the Malaysian gov-
ernment to drop the work of
a Jewish composer from its
scheduled program.
The orchestra, under the
baton of Zubin Mehta, who
is also music director of the

Israel Philharmonic, was to
have performed in Malaysia
early next month. Among
the works which were to be
performed included that of
Ernest Bloch, a Jewish
composer who was born in
Switzerland in 1880 and
who died an American citi-
zen in the United States in
1959.
The score he composed in
1916 and which was to have
been performed was
Schelomo, subtitled A He-
brew Rhapsody for Cello

and Orchestra. But the
Malaysian government pro-
tested the inclusion of the
Bloch piece, noting gov-
ernment policy against the
"screening, portrayal or
musical presentation of
worksof Jewish origin."
Malaysia, a predomin-
antly Moslem country, did
not voice opposition to the
inclusion of works of other
Jewish composers in the
program, such as Leonard
Bernstein and Aaron Cope-
land.

Kollek hit for holiday faux pas

Jerusalem (JTA) — A
mini-storm has erupted in
Jerusalem over Mayor
Teddy Kollek's having been
photographed eating in a
restaurant on the eve of
Tisha b'Av, last week.
Worse still, Kollek actually
asked the proprietor to stay
open for him and his guests
even though the proprietor
intended to close his estab-
lishment that evening — in
accordance with the munic-
ipal by-laws.
Those by-laws, in
Jerusalem and most other
towns in Israel, rquire that
places of entertainment and
places for eating and drink-
ing close on Tisha b'Av, a
fast-day commemorating
the destruction of the Tem-
ple and conquest of
Jerusalem by the Romans
in 70 CE.
Kollek has apologized for

his conduct but has added
that he did not know that
the law forbade restaurants
from opening. He believed it

British cancel
Charter flights
to Israel

Tel Aviv (JTA) — British
tour operators have in-
formed their agencies in Is-
rael that they will be cancel-
ling the arrival of over 5,000
tourists to Israel next

winter, because of problems
placed in the way of charter
flight operations by the Is-
rael Ministry of Transport.
The Monarch Charter
Company said it was im-
possible to fulfill the new Is-
raeli regulations barring
flights of mixed passengers
originating in Israel and
abroad.

applied only to eateries
which also provided music
or entertainment.
He said that he felt the
law should be liberalized to
enable straight eateries to
stay open, in view of the
large number of tourists in
the city at this time.

But neither his apology
nor his explanation have
satisfied the religious
politicians. MK Menachem
Porush of the Agudat Israel
Party, whose son Meir is an
Agudat City councilman,
has publicly demanded Kol-
lek's resignation.
