He said, "One should not be afraid to call a spade. a spade or to call anti-Semitism just that. I am referring especially to the most disturbing situation in one major European country which claims that its constitution and its basic social philosophy precludes mani¬ festations of discrimination and of anti-Semitism. One would hope in¬ deed that enlightened constitutions and philosopliie.s should have this effect, but alas, for the people at fected it is not constitutions or philo- soptiies which matter, as long as they experience intolerable discrimi¬ nation in daily life and practice." POINTING OUT that he speaks of a country where there are 3 million Jews, the Israeli representa¬ tive said that these Jews "suffer both as a group and as individuals." They are being denied, he stated, equality in the administration of justice, freedom to leave their coun¬ try, and religious freedom.- "This community," Mr. Bartur continued, "is connected through family ties to many other Jewish communities throughout the World. There are few Jewish families in Israel or in the United*States who Shown above Is the folkslnging sister team, Joan & Carol, that will appear at the Gallery Players "Hootenanny Splash Dance Party" at The Jewish Center, Sat. evening, July 20.

They are almost completely cut off, not only from their own rich past, not only pre¬ vented from sharing in the cultural and religious Jewish activities abroad but likewise from their flesh and blood. They are not in a position to communicate with their relatives abroad." HE CITED the official and total ban on the teaching of Hebrew, and said that Jewish places of worship "are cdnstanUy shut down, prayer- books are not available, ritual re¬ quirements — like unleavened bread for Passover — are denied to them. This attitude creates a climate of virulant anti-Semitism accompanied by campaigns in the official press of that country." Appealing to the conscience of the world, the Israeli representative said, "In spite of the natural de¬ sire to avoid unpleasant subjects where powerful political forces are concerned, the limitations describ¬ ed are so disturbing that it would mean a failure in moral duty and responsibility to belittle its grave character. We trust that the United Nations, through its Commission on Human Rights, will respond to the urgent and grave natures of this problem with the greatest speed to help restore the rights aspirations of a great and isolated community."

Simon, chapter membership vice president. Founded in 1912 by Miss Henrietta Szold, Hadassah now nunibers 318,000 members in the United States and Puerto Rico.
