WJC Marks
King's Birthday

New York (JTA) — Coretta Scott
King joined representatives of the
World Jewish Congress this week
to mark what would have been
her late husband's 65th birthday.
At the ceremony, Martin
Luther King Jr. was remembered
as a champion of rights for all
people, not just his own.
Dr. King was remembered for
speaking out often on behalf of
Jews who were trapped in the for-
mer Soviet Union and against
anti-Semitism wherever it was
found, even among members of
the black community.
His widow and Evelyn Som-
mer, chairman of the American
section of the WJC, both recalled
that just 10 days before he was
assassinated on April 4, 1968, Dr.
King addressed the members of
the Conservative movement's
Rabbinical Assembly at their an-
nual convention, held that year
in New York.
"We cannot be victims of the
notion that you can substitute
one tyranny for another," he told
the assembled rabbis, who in-
cluded his friend Abraham
Joshua Heschel. "For the black
man to struggle for equality and
then turn around and be anti-Se-
mitic is not only an irrational
course, but an immoral course."
WJC presented Mrs. King
with a proclamation titled "His
Dream is Ours."
After accepting the proclama-
tion, Mrs. King said, "None of the
other recognitions I have received
on his behalf has been more sig-
nificant or moving than your rec-
ognizing his birthday as your own
holiday.
"This is a powerful testament
to the solidarity we share in the
struggle for human rights," said
his widow, who has worked to
spread Dr. King's teachings of
non-violent struggle for civil
rights since his murder.

Ehud Barak
To Study In U.S.

Jerusalem (JTA) — Former Is-
rael Defense Force Chief of Staff
Ehud Barak will be attending the
Johns Hopkins University School
of Advanced International Stud-
ies for three months.
Mr. Barak, whose term as
army chief ended last week, re-
ceived a scholarship to the
school's program in strategic
studies.
Mr. Barak is expected to con-
tinue attending talks in Wash-
ington that are bringing together
Israeli and Syrian diplomats and
military officials.
Mr. Barak denied reports that
he will be appointed defense min-
ister, a post currently held by
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
