"x::;::" 2I\^ Serving Columbus and Centir^ Ohio Jew^ 9 ^v^to^^oi^^^7 Vol. 35, No. 12 COLUMBUS, OHIO, FRIDAY, MARCH 22, 1957 39 O»vot«d ts AriMrlun snd JtwUh la««l« "OKOJJ' TEAM — Above are members of the Dentists' team — a new campaign unit of the 1967 United Jewish Fund. Standing are Dr. Norman Shiff, Dr. Harold Monett, Special Gifts chairman Herbert H. Schlff, William V. Kahn (who addres. sed the group at a special meeting), and Dt. Jack Marx. Seated are Dr. Mitchell Goodman, Dr. Don A. Shusterman and Dr. A. Bertram Thall. Dentists Form New UJF Unit New campaign unit, the Den¬ tists Section, of the United Jew¬ ish Fund, with some of Its mem¬ bers, ia shown above, at the home of Dr. Mitchell Goodman, who along with Dr. Don Shusterman, are co-ohelrmcn. The group re¬ cently got off to a flying start In the 1967 campaign when, at Ita Initlsl meeting-, registered an over-all increase of 56% In ita gift and and a 144% Increase In itl gifts to the Emergency Res¬ cue Fund. Fund leaden were Cheered, by the response of tboce at the meeting and again ef^- phsoized the uisency of the i>rel|. ent world situation. The current publication of the American Jew¬ ish Osminlttee reports a tragic new march of Jewish refugees is beginning. Tens of thousands are now on the move — gHm fore¬ runners of a column that la sweeping in a living crescent from the PoUsb-Riuilan' border, through Hungairy and the Satel¬ lites, down into Bgypt. In Egypt they are called expel¬ lees. In Poland they are emigres. In Hungary, they are emigres and escapees. But wtiatcver the tech¬ nical term, they arc testimony to man's Inhumanity to man . . . and aiso to his unconquerable deaire for freedom, dignity, hu¬ man rights. Oniy a few short years ago we looked toward a period of norm¬ alcy, a change to turn from emergency relief needa In Europe to tbe constructive long-range tasks of rebuilding shattered conimtmal Institutlopg a b r g a d and recreating a Jewish splHtual heritage weakened by war and persecution. Uhbappily, today relief and Im¬ migration problems are again threatening to reach staggering proportion*. Two phrases from the Charter which states AJCs founding purposes take on terri¬ ble fresh urgency: "... to pre¬ vent the infraction of the civil and religious rights of Jews, in any part of the world ... to al¬ leviate the consequences of per¬ secution and to afford relief from oalamatics affecting Jews, whcre- evcr they may occur." Some S0,000 Jews iiave been made innocent victims of the Egyptian government's policy of vengeance, whloh the Washington Post haa described aa "altogether Hitierlan In concept and In scale." The Nasser regime haa erected an iron curtain ot secrecy around Its Jewish victims. Nevertheless, AJC and other organizationa have obtained ominous report of jtf-. 'rests and tortb're, Uniirrsonm'ent In desert concentration camps, deapoilment ot property and ex¬ pulsion. Anti-Semitism lias a century- long record in Poland. It is no wonder that the remaining Jews of the country, having suffered under both Nazism and Com¬ munism, are eager to leave. Al¬ most 3,000 Jews did leave for Is- (cotttlaaed oa pftge t> 'JEWISH LORE' TO MARK PROGRAM NEXT WEEK The long-awaited theatrical event of the Agudas Achim Bro¬ therhood will be presented at the aynagogue Thursday, 8:30 p. m. For tho production, the Brother¬ hood, with the co-operation of the Farband Zionist Order, has as¬ sembled the following young Jewish actors and actresses to bring from New York a trl-Ung- ual cavalcade ot Jewish wisdom, humor and songs. 1.
