Our Conscience As a new year of hope and rededication opens be- fore us, we must turn our thoughts to the spiritual val- ues that have kept the Jewish faith alive for five thou- sand seven hundred and thirty one years. We must ded- icate ourselves to these principals. We must dedicate ourselves, to the task of easing the burdens of those less fortunate than us and to the cause for which Israel is prepared to fight to the death We cannot call our- selves Jews, unless our goal encompasses each of the above. It requires leadership, vision and courage to recognize this. Greater Seattle Jewry has in the past rallied to achieve common objectives. The year 5731 brings a greater challenge. The survival of Israel and Jews around the world. We in this city can and must act as one family, to attain the goals set before us by our Rab- bis, our Jewish organizations and by our own consci- ence. Seattle Synagogues WITH THE START of the High Holy Days, families in Greater Seattle which are not affiliated with a syn-. agogue should fill this important gap in their lives. Esti- mates are that a large number of our Jewish families are not members of congregations, and it is obvious that a substantial number of those who are unaffiliated have made some arrangement to attend services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. The beauty and solemnity of worship on the High Holy Days is only one highly rewarding aspect of syn- agogue attendance. Year-round membership in a con- gregation provides a host of benefits ranging from spir- 'itual rewards to the socially productive and pleasurable associations implicit in the very term, "congregation." The synagogue itself is a family-centered institution emphasizing that which is wholesome for all age levels. We are fortunate in Greater Seattle. We have a di- versity of congregations, Orthodox, Conservative and Reform; our religious leadership is outstanding; per- sons making a selection of a synagogue have an extraor- dinary variety of choices in terms of facilities, educa- tional programs and Hebrew schools for youngsters. We urge unaffiliated families to join the congrega- tion of their choice now. They will discover what so many already know -- that the synagogue which they support with year-round membership is ready, willing and able to support them with a multitude of religious, cultural, psychological and other constructive services to enrich their lives. TEL AVIV, Sept. (JTA) -- The head of the Jewish Agen- cy's immigration department has urged better coordination between his agency and the government's Immigrant Ab- sorption Ministry to facilitate the integration of 40-50,000 new immigrants who arrived or are expected this year and a like number anticipated for 1971. Gen. Uri Narkis said im- proved cooperation was neces- sary to avoid bottlenecks that may develop in receiving and absorbing the newcomers He said 8000 of this year's immi- grants are from the United States and 10,000 are expected next year. Gen. Narkis said that 120,000 immigrants have arrived in Israel since the 1967 Six-Day War. m:00Fm NO00.OW m wnH LoVE Nixon, Nasser May Meet LONDON, Sept.

The poll results also showed that a majority of Americans give President Nixon a great deal or some credit for initiat- ing the current 90-day cease-fire in the Middle East but 57 per- cent doubt the likelihood of a settlement resulting from the American initiative.
