PAGE 8 THEJEWI'SH TR,NSCRIPT SEPTEMBER 30, i970 Excerpts of Messages From Prominent Jews The following are excerpts from the New Year greetings of prominent Jewish groups: From the Chaplains in Viet- nam: "The High Holy Days af- ford a time for all Jews to stop, take stock of themselves, and join their brethren in prayer for Divine direction during the com- ing year. We chaplains, togeth- er with all Jewish personnel here in Vietnam, greet you as we enter on the year 5731. Though the world has made but little progress in its quest for righteousness and peace, still we hope that God will bring us closer to that day 'when nation shall not lift up sword against nation neither shall men learn war any more.' Here in a war zone, we feel the need for this blessing as never before." Dr. William Haber, Presi- dent, American ORT Federa- tion: "Jews throughout the world are acutely aware that the road to peace to the Middle East is mined with danger. At the approach of this Rosh Has- hanah we affirm once more our solidarity with Israel in its ago- nized trial. We identify to the very marrow of our bones with the fate of Israel. We are with Israel in its determination to live, to provide its people with the services essential for prog- ress, and in building of a demo- cratic society that is responsive to human values." Dr. Emanuel Neumann, Chairman, Jewish Agency- American Section: "We trust that Israel's sacrifices of the past years, and its faith in ac- ceptance of American promises, will not have been in vain. We pray that a just and durable peace is in the making, one that will guarantee Israel's future within boundaries that will in- sure its security. We hope that President Nixon will take ac- tions to implement the feelings of the great American public that Israel deserves and must be given all the American sup- port that is necessary for its preservation." Rabbi Maurice N. Eisen- drath, President, Union of He- brew Congregations: "As we pray for peace and good will in the New Year, we also must vow to cry out against injustice, to offer succor and dignity to the disinherited, to stand forth- rightly against the forces of misused power. And we ask for atonement of our sins we must recognize that apathy toward despotism, aggression, bigotry, poverty and corruption is no less sinful that is the slaying of one's brother." Mrs. David M. Levitt, Presi- dent, National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods: "We ap- proach the religious New Year 5731 with the fervent hope and prayer that the coming year will see a permanent end to strife among nations and the beginning of a just peace and reconciliation among people everywhere. Widow of Pike Studying Hebrew JERUSALEM, Sept. (JTA) -- Mrs. Diane Pike, widow of former Bishop James Pike who died in the Judaean desert last year has enrolled at the Hebrew University to study Hebrew. Mrs. Pike said she wanted to learn the language of Israel because she intends to bring a number of Americans here on a regular basis under the auspices of the Bishop Pike Foundation. Mrs. Pike whose home is in Bakersfield, Calif., said she was continuing her late husband's research in Israel for a book on the historical Jesus. It was in the course of that research in the wilderness near the Dead Sea that the former Episcopal Bishop of California, died of heat exhaustion while his wife sought help. Mrs. Pike said she intended to complete the book which is to be published in the U.S. by the Doubleday Co. Young Liberals Change Policy LONDON, Sept. (JTA) -- The National League of Young Liberals, the youth wing of Brit- ain's Liberal Party, has with- drawn from the anti-Israel Pal- estine Solidarity Campaign on grounds that it does not want to be identified with Arab terror- ism. Jack Barnett, joint honorary secretary of the Liberal Friends of Israel, told the Jewish Tele- graphic Agency that the party as a whole was gratified by this move. "We see in this a first step towards a reversal of the pro- Arab policy, expressed by some members of the Young Liberal Movement, which has done so much to district attention from the Liberal Party's overwhelm- ing sympathy for the State of Israel," he said.

As we reflect on the hap- penings of the year past and pray for better tidings in the year to come, the welfare of so many of our less fortunate co- religionists is very much in our thoughts. Tens of thousands of needy Jews in North Africa and the Middle East are fed, healed, clothed and educated by the Joint Distribution Committee. In Europe and in North Africa still more thousands continue to walk the refugee roads in search of a haven. For them too, the Joint Dis- tribution Committee remains a beacon of hope and a source of aid and comfort. Some 90,000 Jews in Israel, including the aged, ill and handicapped, con- tinue to look to the Joint Distri- bution Committee for aid. Youth Charge Called 'Absurd' SAN FRANCISCO (JTA) -- A recent complaint by delegates at a B'nai B'rith International Young Adults convention that present-day Jewish community leadership was made up of "mostly middle-aged" individu- als has been assailed by the Greater San Francisco Council of B'nai B'rith Lodges as "ab- surd and totally unfounded in reference to B'nai B'rith." The delegates called for "more balance and more demo- cratic representation" on Jew- ish decision-making bodies in the United States and Canada. The Young Adults comprise the 18-to-29-year-old component of the group's youth organization. The San Francisco Council also declared that "the young people have not joined any of the established Jewish organiza- tions in any substantial num- bers, so their resulting lack of representation at the higher- levels must be laid directly at their doorsteps." We wish all our Rela- tives and Friends a Healthy, Happy and Prosperous New Year. Mr. & Mrs. Henry Perlin Happy New ear 5731 ! fom Lakewood Cleaners s04o wtsoN AVE. PA 2-0938 CHRIS A.
