"Presents Jewish
history in a way
that can be followed
easily."
Louis Finkelstein

"I hope the book
will make the impres-
sion it deserves and
merits."

passively support their
government, at least by abs-
taining to vote on crucial
issues.
But the Orthodox are unen-
thusiastic over any kind of
political alliance with the
Communists, active or
passive.
The situation is further
complicated by the acute bit-
terness between Rabbi
Schach and the Agudah, par-
ticularly its Chabad Chasidic
component.

Israeli Vote
Tally Issued

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Labor Party and the Likud
have each gained a Knesset
seat in the final tally of votes
cast in Israel's nationwide
parliamentary elections. The
losers appear to be the two
non-Zionist parties supported
chiefly by Israel's Arab com-
munity.
After ballots cast by
soldiers and by Israeli mer-
chant seamen abroad were
counted, the final vote results
were announced last week.
A total of 2,283,123 valid
votes were cast in the elec-
tions. They were split among
27 parties, 15 of which made
it into the 12th Knesset.
The key for winning a
Knesset seat was 18,563
votes, or one-120th of the
total number of votes cast.
Three new parties that had
shown promise according to
preelection public opinion
polls failed to win the
minimum required. They are
the Pensioners, which won
16,674 votes; Meimad, a
moderate religious party,
15,783 votes; and Laor, 14,182
votes.
Likud — 40 seats (709,305
votes)
Labor — 39 (685,363)
Shas — 6 (107,709)
Agudat Yisrael — 5
(102,714)
Citizens Rights Movement

(84,032)

Maparri — 3 (56,345)
Tsomet — 2 (45,489)
Moledet — 2 (44,174)
Center-Shinui Movement —
