He addressed the 1961 biennial convention of the New York Metropolitan Region of the United Synagogue of America, central body of the-Conserva- tive religious movement. More than 1,000 delegates are attend- ing the parley.

The delegates denounced the Arab "blackmail" and interfer- ence with the economic rela- tions of Israel with other na- tions and asserted that these ac- tivities were designed, along "Nazi lines and bear the im- print of racial discrimination." Such activities, the delegates said, were directed against the Jewish people as a whole. The Congress also adopted a resolution expressing anxiety over the "frequency of anti- Semitic outbreaks of a definite- ly Nazi character, especially in Germany," and appealed to the Governments of the affected countries to lake speedy pre- ventive measures. In another resolution, the delegates appealed to the Soviet Government to ensure to Rus- sian Jews all the necessary con- ditions for a normal religious life. The delegates extended fraternal greetings to Soviet Jews and "proudly notes their loyalty to Jewish traditions." On Soviet Jewry The resolution expressed "deep anxiety" about the future of Soviet Jewry as a distinct national religious entity. The Soviet Government also was called on to recognize the right of Russian Jews to a national, religious and cultural life and the right of emigration. In another resolution the dele- gates condemn the severance by Morocco of postal communica- tions with Israel, "thus prevent- ing normal contact between members of families" The reso- lution called the severance an act. counter to basic humani- tarian principles.
