"Payments may be made to the United Jewish Fund at the Jewish Center, 1126 College Ave. Please act today if you have not already done »b.'* NEW YORK, (JTA) - The A- merlcan Jewiah Committee and the B'nai B'rith, parent body of the Anti-Defamation League, officially announced tholr withdrawal from the National Community Relations Advisory Council. Their actjon followed adoption by the national plenary conference of the NCRAC earlier thia month of a plan for reorganization of work In the com¬ munity relations field. Both or¬ ganizations had strbnuously op¬ posed the pian, adoption of which was inspired by tbe Maclver Re¬ port on Jewish community relu- tlons. Jacob Blaustcln, president of tho AJC, and Frank Goldman, presi¬ dent of B'nai B'rith, made the for¬ mal statements announcing seces¬ sion by their organizations from the eight-year-old agency. Mr. Blauatein declared that "the fundamental basis for the Amcri- ca^ Jewish Committee's withdraw¬ al from the NCRAC i's mir rejec¬ tion of a regulatory body with com¬ pulsory powers to which national agencies are subordinated. N o central body," he assorted, "can presume to have a mandate to speak as the 'fflclai' voice of A- morican Jewry." He declared that the resolution adopted at the Atlantic City ses¬ sion of the NCRAC "purported to be a compromise but was no com¬ promise because It advanced the same proposition for centralized control 'which we had been stead¬ fastly rejecting. The essence of that resolution would be to prevent American Jews from having the determining voice over the policies and purposes of the organizations of their choice." To accept thia, he said, "would have committed the American Jew¬ ish Committee to abandon ita founding principles; yield Its aut¬ onomy; ignore ita responalbllities to its members, and jeopardize the methods of combatting anti-'Seml- tiam and all forma of prejudice and discrimination which we have lab¬ oriously evolved through nearly 50 yeara of experience." Mr. Goldman Charged that the reorganization plan "holds out the prospect of fragmentizing agencies with the longest and greatest rec¬ ord of service." Ho said it would "throttle voluntarism and injur¬ iously dismantle the defense structure." The B'nai B'rith's ex¬ ecutive committee voted the a' tion unanimously. Mr, Goldman warned that "to ac¬ cept the terms of diamemborment hhtielte^ THE MATCHMAKING CUSTOM The Mishnalc book Taanit (IV.9) tells about the interesting custom of matchmaking whi^h waa practiced In Yom Kippu^, as well as on the 15th day of the month of Ab, In the days of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. Jerusalcmite girls would dance on thoae ^ays while dressed In white garments. Poor girls, in order not to be put to shame, would borrow white drrosea for the purpose. Their dancing would be In the presence of unmarried assembled men and the girls would exclaim: "Yoong man: lift up thine eyes and qee what thou chooaest for thyself. Do not set your eyeft on beauty but on good family. A woman that fea^th the Lord shall be prolBed." The the young men would reply ^^wlth these words from Proverbs (31.80-81): "Give her of the fruit of her hands and let her works praise her In the gates." It Ib related that th^ young men on that day chose their brides among the young dancing women and the Cwo days on which this tra¬ dition prevailed are said to have been the most joyous on the Jewish calendar. I will cause the shower to come ,down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing—EzeU. 34:26. • • • They shall build the waste cities, and inhabit them . . . They shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.—Amos.. 9:14. and control would debaso the Jdeals of freedom and voluntarism which we hold dear. We are certain that as an inevitable consequence of such acceptance, tho Jewiah com¬ munity of America would suffer grieviously. We aro convinced that the fight against antl-Semitiam, which is of transcendant import¬ ance, would be weakened Irrepara¬ bly," Q—_ IVREEYOH LUNCHEON AT CENTER WEDNESDAY - Ivreeyoh Society's paid-up mem¬ bership luncheon will be held at the Jewish Center Wednesday, 12:30 p. m., under the chairman¬ ship fcf Mrs. Albert Shkolnlk and Mrs. Inez Segel.
