WA.g.HINGTON (JTA)—Amer¬ ican assistance to the United Arab Republic would not increase Nas¬ ser's capability to Import arms from the Soviet bloc, nor would withholding assistance dccreaac that capability. Assistant Secre¬ tary of State Frederick G. Dut¬ ton declared this weel<. In a letter addressed to Repre¬ sentative Leonard Farbsteln, New York Democrat, the Assistant Sec¬ retary asserted that charges that Egypt would have to divert money from domestic needs to pay for Russian arms were "not valid." He said Egypt had "an excess of unuBued Soviet credits upon which Voice Plea To Ease Burden On Rabbinate MIAMI BEACH (JTA)—An ap¬ peal to synagogue leaders to re¬ lieve the rabbi from various busi¬ ness administration, fund-raising and public relations duties, so that he might devote more of his time and energy to spiritual mat¬ ters, was made here before the 26th annual convention of the Rabbinical Council ot America. The appeal to the convention of the Orthodox rabbis waa made by the organization's past presi¬ dent. Rabbi Theodore L. Adams of New York. "Lay synagogue and community leaders," he as¬ serted, "are reducing the power of the rabbi in the purely religious areas of Jewish life. The control of religious policies Is constantly being transferred from the rabbis to the lay leaders. "SYNAGOGUE LKADERS should relieve the rabbi of such functions as business adndtalstta- tion, fund-ra,ising and glorified public relations operatlona, so that he can be restored to a posi¬ tion of deep spiritual distinction, authority and persuasiveness. The hope for a truly creative resurg¬ ence cannot rest with narrow 'or¬ ganization men.' it must be l>ased on the consecrated commitment lo draw." THE STATE DEPARTMENT, said Dutton, recognizes "Israel's deep concern with the Issues arising from the Arab-Israel prob¬ lem." However, he added that "prospects lor its settlement and for stability in the region as a whole are Improved, If the coun¬ tries Involved are assisted to pur¬ sue their Ifegitlmate goals for economic development." Dutton said that "by demon¬ strating American interest and support for the U.AJl.'s efforts for economic development, there will be a stronger foundation on which mutual problems can be worked out." He stressed that] the State Department was "con¬ vinced" of the determination of the Egypyans "to search for pro¬ gress and to maintain their In¬ dependence. They urgently re¬ quire foreign aid In pursuit of these goals," he said. MEANWHILE, in New York, Israeli Ambassador Avraham Har¬ man said Israel Is "very concern¬ ed" alMut Egypt's general rearm¬ ament. "We're very concerned, of course, by the general picture of rearmament in EJgypt," he stated, "it has been going on since 1955, and has been stepped up in the past year. The air aspect of it is, of course, one which cpncerns us most, but Egyptian rearmament ia not limited to the air and it's not limited to MIGs. It has also Included in recent months the receipt by them of long-range heavy bombers." "Alao from Russia?" asked Sen. Kenneth Keating in a radio in¬ terview. "YES," REPLIED Harman. "But their plans Include a heavy build-up and motorization of their infantry, development of armor and, of course, a rather impres¬ sive increase as far as their naval (contlnuad on pag. 4) of Individuals of high ethical and religious eminence, such aa the rabbi." Rabbi Harold H. Smith of Chi cago sharply criticized the recent "dialogue" held in Jerusalem be¬ tween American Jewish and Is¬ raeli leaders who had discussed the relationships between Israeli and American Jewries. He challenged one conclusion resulting from that "dialogue" which, he said, held that "Israeli- American Jewish ties could be re- emphasized through the simple process of learning the Hebrew language." "FOB MORE than 3,000 years, Jewish people the world over have retained their identity and heri¬ tage not because of language but because of the close spiritual ties of the Torah which have guided the Jewish people in their dajf-to- day living. "Religion and its common ideals have always been the unbreak¬ able chain of Jewish unity and continuity. Unless the young Jews of Israel and Ameriea are imbued with the realization that our bond .of unity rests in the spiritual ob¬ ligations we share, that bond will be Jeopardized." JUGOB H.
