public meetings protesting
what is widely known as The
Damascus Affair.
"Historically, this is an ex-
tremely important discovery,"
according to Bernard Wax,
director of The Society who
recently discovered the let-
ters in a metal container
among the papers of the late
Rabbi Edward Klein of the
Free Synagogue in New
York.
"The Damascus Affair was
a pivotal event in American
Jewish history," Wax said. "It
marked the first time there
was an organized protest in-
volving more than one
Jewish community to protest
outrages against Jews in an-
other country."
The Damascus Affair was a
blood libel that occurred in
Syria in 1840 when 13 Jews
were imprisoned and tortured
for the alleged ritual murders
of a Christian monk and his
servant. Two prisoners died
from the torture and one con-
verted to Christianity.

Sarid Suffers
Heart Attack

Jerusalem (JTA) — MK
Yossi Sarid suffered a heart
attack in the Knesset Dec. 10
and was taken to Hadassah
Hospital where he was re-
ported to be resting comfort-
ably.
Sarid, 45, a Knesset
member for the Citizens
Rights Movement (CRM) and
an outspoken champion of
civil rights and reconciliation
between Israelis and Palesti-
nians, was stricken outside
the plenary chamber where
he had just presented a mo-
tion to abolish censorship of
plays and films.
The Knesset physician ad-
ministered first aid until the
arrival within minutes of an
ambulance with special car-
diac treatment equipment.
Sarid did not lost conscious-
ness but was in considerable
pain.

Tomato Row
Resolved

Jerusalem (JTA) — An in-
terministerial dispute over
tomatoes appeared to be re-
solved. The Agriculture
Ministry decided this week
not to import them for the
time being.
Acting Minister of Agricul-
ture Ezer Weizman seems to
have emerged the victor,
though he walked off the job
in disgust last week when the
Finance Ministry announced
over his objections that 100
tons of tomatoes would be
air-freighted from Spain.
The reason was the sea-
sonal shortage which has
sent the price of tomatoes
soaring.
