This unique cultural event in the community will feature a one man art show by Nehemiah Mark, nationally renowned biblical wood sculp¬ tor, who has widely toured the United States and Canada. A "meet-the-artist" reception, which will be hosted by members of the Center art committee, will be Ecumenical Council Decision May Be Drastically Revised NEW 'YORK (JTA)—Leaders of American Jewry were shocked and highly disappointed to learn that the draft declaration approved at the Ecumenical Council last November, exonerating the Jews of any collec¬ tive responsibility for the crucifixion of Jesus, had been drastically revised by an ad hoc commission of four at the Vatican, despite the fact that it was adopted at the Council by a vote of 1,992 to 99. The declaration, as adopted last November against the opposition held on Sunday, May 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. During this time Mark will demonstrate his techniques in wood carving. At 3 p.m. the 71 year old artist will lecture on "Art Through Faith." The exhibit, which will be held in the Adult Lounge, consists of over 100 items of various sizes. Mark was born in Lithuania and came to the United States more than half a century ago. He has put aside his work as teacher and rabbi to concentrate on transmitting faith through wood. The artist interprets ideas and per¬ sonalities from Legends and Bibli¬ cal quotations. Bearing in mind the Biblical Commandment—'You shall not make for yourself 'Sny graven image—he does not carve full faces, always leaving one feature uncom¬ pleted. Mark says. "I return to the sources to find any inspiration in the Torah, the Midrash and the traditional law. I found the Midrash a magnificent museum, Ezekiel a great sculptor, and Isaiah a superb painter." Beginning on Monday, May 3, in a diversified and interesting pro¬ gram, Mark will meet with a range of community workers, religious school educators and their students, and r\any other community groups who will participate in his demon¬ strations and lectures. During the course of the week Mark will meet with Temple Israel Religious School, Torah Academy, Columbus Hebrew School, Jewish Center Pre-school, Jewish Center staff and camp counselors.

Heritage House residents, Tifereth Israel Religious School, Agudas Achim High school class and at The Jewish Center annual meeting on Thursday, May 6 at 8:30 p.m. In highlighting this event, Presi¬ dent Schoenbaum also stated that Mark will be carving in wood, his Biblical works of art in his re¬ nowned and inimitable style, daily, in The Jewish Center lobby from about 3 p.m. on. Schoenbaum concluded, "that Dr. and Mrs. Gordon should leave such a rich and cultural heritage for our community to enjoy, was typical of this dedicated couple. "With characteristic foresight and thoughtfulness the Gordons have enabled the community, through The Jewish Center, to develop an appropriate expression of Judaic events. In the coming years other programs will be developed within the framework of this Series." of ultra-conservative prelates and Bishops from the Arab states, had stated clearly that no blame for the death of Jesus could be attributed to the Jewish people alive in the days of Jesus and "much less" to the Jews of today. However , that draft must be con¬ sidered for final adoption at.the next session of the Ecumenical Council, scheduled to convene September 17, before it is promulgated as official Catholic Church doctrine. The New 'York Times, in a cable from its correspondent in Rome, said that the draft declaration is now being fought at top levels in the Vatican, and is in danger of being so diluted as to make its message meaningless. The corre¬ spondent cited several facts as in¬ dications that the declaration faces new challenges, and that changes in its text may be made next month. during a plenary meeting of the Council Secretariat for Christian Unity, The document had been passed on to an ad hoc extra-councilor com¬ mission of four prelates, acting as a separate group instead of tieing part of the Council, for review of the declaration and for recom¬ mending revisions. That body is composed of four prelates, headed by the Rev. Luigi Carli, of Segni, Italy, identified as "one of the most ultra-conservative voices in the church." This group has reportedly pro¬ posed a completely new and shorter text of a declaration which would speak merely of "forgiveness" to the Jews rather than of exonerating them of the deicide charge. Only one member of the ad hoc group, Giovanni Cardinal Colombo, Archbishop of Milan, was reported Professor Nemzer Is To At Warsaw Ghetto Meeting Speak B'NAI B'RITH ADULT YOUTH GOMMinEE HOLDS ANNUAL FAMILY ^AWARDS NIGHT The Annual B.B.'Y.O.

Rabbi David Stavsky will extend greetings and six members of the congregation will be selected to light six memorial lamps, in mem¬ ory of the six million Jews who perished in Europe during the Nazi era. Mr. Grinblatt extends an invita¬ tion to all members of the Jewish Community to attend this event. to have opposed the changes advo¬ cated by Bishop Carii. "Highest Va t i c a n author'ties" were reportedly in favor of revis¬ ing the preliminary declaration "to insure its orthodoxy and purity of doctrine" and to safeguard the in¬ terests of Roman Catholics in Arab lands who fear their governments would discriminate against them if the declaration is adopted as ap¬ proved last November. A magazine article by Bishop Carli last month, bluntly asserted that the Jews of Jesus's day did, indeed, bear collective responsi¬ bility for His crucifixion. Further, the Bishop wrote that, to the extent that Judaism today constitutes the "free and voluntary continuation" of that of .Tesus's tirne, today's Jews continue to "participate ob¬ jectively in the responsibility for deicide." A sermon on April 4 by Pope Paul VI illustrated the continued rejec¬ tion of Jesus by many men by ref¬ erence to the Jews who "in the end, killed him." Assurances by Vatican spokes¬ men that this was merely a pas¬ toral reference to scriptural texts without any significance for the declaration have failed to still spec¬ ulation that it indicated papal adoption of the conservative thesis. In intense diplomatic activity be¬ tween Arab representatives and the Vatican, the Arabs insisted that the declaration as it stands would be interpreted as \(atican Slipport of Israel. The Times reported that high- ranking churchmen, including Americans, who have asked the Vatican to reassure them that the November draft would not be altered substantively, have received B. Mellman.
