Interfaith Dating To Be Discussed The Agudas Achim Congregation is inaugurating a brunch and dis¬ cussion session to probe problems that affect the Jewish community. Sunday morning at 10:30 has been selected as the hour for this pro¬ ject. The first session will be on Nov. 17. The problem which will be dis¬ cussed is interfaith dating. Many believe that inter-marriage, which leads to assimilation, will ultimate¬ ly lead to the disappearance of the Jewish people. The panel selected to consider the problem represents many fac¬ ets found in the Columbus Jewish community. They include: Lazar D. Brener, director of Heritage House, who formerly served as a case worker for the Jewish Family Ser¬ vice Social Agency; Dr, B. B. Cap¬ lan, prominent physician and psy¬ chiatrist, who has lectured exten¬ sively on the complexities of the teenager; and Mr. and Mrs. H. Robert Silverstein. Mrs. Silverstein is on the faculty of the English department of Bexley High School and her husband is doing advanced studies at Ohio State University Graduate School. Rabbi Samuel W. Rubenstein wUl serve as an expert on the religious phases of the prob¬ lem. The community is invited to at¬ tend Sunday morning, Nov. 17 at 10:30. Another session will be held on Dec. 18 at 10:30 a.m., on the subject "How to Explain Dec. 25 to Your Children." BLOOD DONOR FACTS The Columbus regional blood donor program covers 23 counties, and supplies lOO percent Of the blood needs of 47 hospitals in the region. Only 2 percent of the population is now donating blood; 4 percent is needed. Less than an hour is required to be a donor. You can donate five times a year or every eight weeks - all we expect is that you will donate twice a year, on "B" day. There is no charge for blood you receive, no matter in what amount, at any hospital in this region. A charge is made by the hospital for typing and administration' of the blood, but blood is free and need not be replaced when used, except the moral obligation on each person to see that blood is kept in good supply, so that it is available, \yhen it is needed. As a member of a participating donor group (The Jewish Commun¬ ity Blood Donor Council) you and members of your immediate fam¬ ily are eligible to receive Red Cross blood, regardless of where you may be hospitalized. Blood credits are transferrable to practic¬ ally any hospital in the United States. When you donate, you are given a medical check-up. There is a constant need for blood. W^ are counting on you! GROUP TO HEAR ISAAG TOUBIN ON NOV. 20 Isaac Toubin. executive director of the American Association for Jewish Education, will speak to the Leadership Development Group on Wednesday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m. at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Melton. 435 N.

The American Association for Jewish Education is a central,- co¬ ordinating body of the American Jewish community, concerned with the improvement of educational standards in the Jewish school sys¬ tems.

Official's Report Is Pessimistic On Arab Problem The highest United Nations official in charge of the Arab refugee problem told the General As.semb!y that the "crux" of the entire Arab-Israeli conflict in the Middle East l.s not the refugee problem but the Arab refusal to recoghizc Israel's ex¬ istence and the Arab determination that Israel must not con¬ tinue to exist as a state. That statement was made to the Assembly's Special Politi¬ cal Committee by Dr. John H RALPH ROSENTHAL TO HEAD HERITAGE HOUSE COLLECTIONS Mr. Aaron Zaclcs, president of Heritage House, announced the appointment of Ralph Rosenthal as chairman of the col¬ lections: committee for Heritage House. Mr. Rosenthal has been active in the United Jewish Fund and Council and Heritage House. He was a member of the cam paign committee for building Heritage House and is a member of the Board of Trustees. iVIr. Zacks and Mr. Rosenthal em-'. phasized how helpful il would be to, Heritage House if persons would pay on the outstanding pledges. Mr. Zacks also added that Heritage House would welcome pledges from those who have not yet contributed. Mr. Rosenthal stated "that prompt payment would relieve the finan¬ cial pressure on the Home. I feel that everyone who responded so generously in the past, will once again do so. In the next few days a member ot the committee will contact persons who still owe on their pledges." Other members of the collection committee are Richard Abel, Don Erkis, Ben Lurie, Louis Levin, Sam Schlonsky, Robert Weiler, Sr., Abe Wolman and Aaron Zacks. Ralph Rosenthal appointed a Wo¬ men's Committee, headed by Mrs. Jack Resler, president of the aux¬ iliary of Heritage House, who are also assisting in collections of out¬ standing pledges. Members of the Women's Committee are Mesdames Jack Resler, Mark Feinknopf, Max Friedman, Hy Stone, Emil Wasstr Strom, Sam Wasserstrom, Robert Blashek, William Blesi, Jerome Bornheim, Morris Skilki^n, Ben Lu¬ rie, John Resler, Sim Shinbach, Robert Weiler, Sr., Louise Guggen¬ heim, Joseph Schecter, Harry Schwartz, Abe. Wolman, Lillian Danziger, I. Nutis, Howard Schoen¬ baum, Jule Mark, Henry Piatt, Fay Davis, Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refu¬ gees. Dr. Davis opened the com¬ mittee's consideration of his annual report, submitted three week ago, with a 5,000-word evaluation of the refugee problem which, he said, reflected his "considered judgrnent" based on his total experience after five years as UNRWA chief. Telling the committee that he dis¬ agrees with those who think the way to solve "the total Palestine problem is to solve the refugee problem," he stated: "In fact, the fundamental factor and the controlling one regarding the Palestine issue is not the refu¬ gee problem per se. Rather, it is the fact that two bodies of people are pursuing divergent ends, which 15 years of negotiating effort has not reconciled or even given pro¬ mise of reconciling. The refugee •problem is but one facet of the broader complex of problems which have emerged out of the presence of Israel as a state in the Middle East. "On the one hand, the citizens of Israel are totally dedicated and committed to the preservation and continued existence of their coun¬ try and will, I am sure, strive to preserve it with everything they have, including their very lives. Offsetting this is the Aral) feeling which is equally strong. The crux of the Arab feeling is that they do not recognize the legitimacy of Israel as a state, and they do not want her to continue to exist as a state. "In my opinion, this feeling is a product of the complex history of the Arab peoples which extends back over not just recent decades but even centuries. This feeling exists not only in the hearts and minds of a million Palestine refu¬ gees or in the hearts and minds of a group of Arab politicians, but also among the Arab people and the Arab nations as a wtjole, and is being transmitted in full force to the new generation wliich is now growing up. Thus as far as I can tell, this feeling is virtually uni¬ versal within Arab countries. More¬ over, Arab politicians do not con¬ trol this feeling but, on the con¬ trary, are. themselves, governed by it- "Hence, it is that on both sides the power of decision is anchored with tho people. In my opinion, this fact largely explains why all past efforts to settle the Palestine issue or the refugee problem through negotiatidns or special projects have failed." While the long-range picture was "ominous," Dr. Davis continued, there arc certain "short run" steps that might be taken by the United Nations. These, he said, included 1) "efforts to continue preserving peace in the Middle East and find¬ ing a means for carrying ouf pro¬ visions of a 1948 Assembly resolu¬ tion which called for repatriation of the Arabs or their compensation by Israel; 2) continuation of relief activities, including education and job training." COLUMBUS COMMUNITY CELEBRATES BOOK MONTH WITH JOINT BOOK FAIR ON DEC. 1 The Columbus Jewish community will join together to celebrate Jewish Book Month which runs from Nov. 8 to Dec. 8. Coluwibus organizations and institutions will combine to con¬ duct two m^jor programs during that period so that the com¬ munity will become aware of the extensive Jewish literature which is a part of our heritage.
