sponsored by a coalition of religious
and civic organizations.
Jessie Stern, past president of the
Greater Detroit Section and a national
NCJW board member, said she hoped
the program would alert the commu-
nity to the plight of Soviet Jews.
We want to sensitize the general
and Jewish communities to the prob-
lems of Soviet Jews and help Soviet
Jews with a direct effort. We are going
to ask people (who attend Sunday's
program) to adopt a family or a re-
fusenik and to write to them, to reach
the refuseniks themselves."
Chairman of the day Shelby
Tauber voiced a similar aim for the
program. We hope it raises the level
of awareness in the entire community
to the plight of Soviet Jews. The mes-
sage needs to be communicated." Ms.
Tauber said that the Soviet Jewry
issue is not only a Jewish question, but
a human rights question as well.

Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel's Am-
bassador to the United Nations,
strongly rejected charges made Tues-
day by the Jordanian envoy to the
world organization comparing Israel's
military rule in the West Bank to the
behavior of the Nazis.
Declaring that he spoke not only
as the representative of Israel but also
as a spokesman for the six million
Jews who were slaughtered by the
Nazis during the Holocaust,
Netanyahu asked the Jordanian Am-
bassador, Khalid Madadha, Have you
no decency sir?"
Netanyahu quoted a Russian say-
ing and told the Jordanian diplomat,
"Lie, but know when to stop." He said
that the Jordanian envoy should have
known when to stop speaking lies
when he talked about Israel.
Netanyahu used his right of reply
in the General Assembly on Tuesday
night to respond during the General
Assembly's yearly debate on "The
Sister Ann Gillen will represent the
National Interreligious Task Force.
tle to convene the Interfaith Plea, Mrs.
Stern said that each year the National
Jewish Community Relations Advi-
sory Council approaches a. national
Jewish organization to spearhead the
project. This year the NCJW was ap-
proached and all of the NCJW sections
throughout the country committed
themselves to holding such a program
during Human Rights Week.
