AJCongress
Draws Fire

The American Jewish Con-
gress' call Sept. 21 for an in-
ternational Mideast peace
conference has drawn sharp
reactions from other
organizations.
Milton Shapiro, president of
the Zionist Organization of
America, declared that "if the
rationale of the American
Jewish Congress was follow-
ed, there would never have
been a Jewish State
established in the first place.
By contrast, ZOA believes
that Israeli policy in such
matters is the prerogative of
the people of Israel, who are
quite capable of making deci-
sions in their own democratic
self-interest."
Abraham Foxman, national
director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, rejected the
AJCongress' implicit call on
other American Jewish
organizations to follow its in-
itiative. "We won't do it. For
me the stakes are too high to
make a mistake. When and if
Israel makes up its mind on
how to proceed, then we'll
deal with whether we support
it or not," Foxman said in a
statement to the press.

Nuclear Vigil
Set for Succot

New York — In support of
current efforts by the major
global powers to reach an
agreement on nuclear con-
trols, Franklin D. Kreutzer,
international president of the
United Synagogue of
America (Conservative) has
announced "Yom Atzeret
EChaim," a day of awareness,
which will be held in
synagogues to coincide with
the last day of Succot.
The event to be observed on
Oct. 14-15, is to call attention
to the fact that the danger of
nuclear annihilation is a
reality in our time, and we
are obligated to create a
climate of response which will
precipitate a concerted effort
to oppose this threat to the
future of our planet, Kreutzer
said.
