Passover, a major Jewish festival over 2,000 years old, will be cele- brated by Jews all over the world beginning tonight. The holiday commemorates the exodus of the Israelites from ancient Egypt into the desert to escape the slavery and oppression of the Egyp¬ tian monarch, Pharaoh, This oldest of Jewish festivals will be observed for an entire week by Reform Jews and for eight days by Conservative and Orthodox Jews, Passover was originally held as a spring festival during the Jewish calendar month of Nissan. It was formerly a seven-day holiday and changed only in later times when Jews, not residing in Palestine and living under a Western calendar, extended the holiday to eight days. Passover begins with the ritual meal called the Seder, the Hebrew word meaning "order," The family participates in the ceremony by reading the prayers and singing the songs in the "Hag- gadah" the prayerbook which tells the story of the ancient Exodus and the efforts of Moses to free the Jewish people from Egyptian bond¬ age. Today, many . congregations, of all branches of Judaism, conduct Seders at the synagogue on the second day of Passover. Many foods eaten during the holi¬ day and during the Seder ritual serve as symbolic reminders of the Exodus. The best known are the ' Matzohs, or I unleavened bread, so made, because the Israelites left in haste and could not complete the baking of dough. Other foods found on the Seder plate are: Charoses, a combination of nuts, apples, cinnamon and wine, which depict the mortar used by the Israelites to make bricks for the Egyptian Pyramids; Moror, bitter bitter herbs, to recollect the bitter period of bondage; a roasted egg, to symbolize the burnt offering presented on PaSsover during the existence of the Temple in Jeru¬ salem and a shankbone to depict the Pascal Lamb. Although the foods on the Seder plates are reminders of the ancient Exodus story, Jews today derive a contemporary message from the holiday. The message ot Passover re¬ affirms struggles by individuals Ml over the world for liberty and free¬ dom—such as in America, where the Negro continues to fight for equality and in the Soviet Union, where almost 3,000,000 JeWs are supressed culturally and religiously. Both the ancient message and the contemporary theme are taught to youngsters in the family who play an important role at the Seder, The youngest of the family asks "Four Questions" in the Haggadah. He inquires of tho others, the dif- fi renee between the Passover meal and other meals and asks the rea¬ sons for the eating of unleavened bread, bitter hertis and charoses. Most children look forward to the finding of the "Aphikomen" — a Greek word for dessert. The head of the family has hidden a piece of matzoh to be eaten by the Seder guests immediately after the meal. The discovery of this piece of Matzoli usually means q reward for the youngster who finds it.

Iraq and the three Communist members of the Commission - re¬ presenting the USSR, Ukrania and Poland - fought some of the pro¬ visions and voted against most of them, indicating they feared the broad religious freedoms might apply to Soviet Jews. In the official document, however, no country was named specifically and none of the provisions could be applied to the Soviet Union un¬ less the USSR ultimately ratifies the UN instrument,. One of the freedoms guaranteed in the approved portions of the draft convention grants to all be¬ lievers the freedom to observe their faith's rituals, including.observance of dlfetary and other practices of one's religion, and the manufacture or import of objects, foods or other articles and faciUties customarily used in such observances. That proposed right, important for Soviet Jewry, was strongly op¬ posed by the delegates of Russia, the Ukraine and Iraq, The Iraqi delegate proposed re¬ placement of the paragraph by a more general text, omitting all ref¬ erence to dietary foods and the right to produce or import them. The Iraqui amendment was rejec¬ ted by 13 to four, with four ab¬ stentions. The four negative votes were cast by Iraq, Poland, the Soviet Union and the Ukraine. The paragraph was then appro¬ ved in its original form by 17 to three, with one ,ibsention. The three opposing votes were regis¬ tered by Iraq, the Soviet Union and the Ukraine, Poland voted for the original version, and India ab¬ stained, A paraghaph guaranteeing free¬ dom to make rehgious pilgrim- mages was adopted by 16 to two, with three absentions. Another paragraph dealt with freedom to organize local, regional and na¬ tional associations of a reUgious nature, and to communicate with co-relationists abroad. Israel added to this clause amendment guaranteeing the right to organize, maintain and partici¬ pate in international associations of a religious character. Israel's proposal was adopted by 14 votes to seven. Humphrey Is Awarded Human Rights Award Calling the past ten years in American history "the Freedom De¬ cade," Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey on April 8 warned against accepting "small plans . , . small results . . , and partial suc¬ cess" in the not yet completed struggle for equal justice and equal opportunity, "We must resolve , , , to regard each partial success as a stepping stone in the exhilarating task of ex¬ tending the benefits of civilization to people everywhere," Mr. Hum¬ phrey said. The Vcc President received the 1965 Human Rights Award ot the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith for his "vigorous leadership and long, distinguished record as a champion of human rights." The presentation was made by Ambassador Adlai E, Stevenson at a dinner in the New York Hilton Hotel inaugurating the 1965 ADL Appeal i 1 New York.
