' ¦ X ...': , SHAMANSKY WPS SHOE'FOR OPPONENT Robert N. Shamansky, candi¬ date for Congress in the 12th District, said in a letter to Dr. Ben Gertner, local commander of the Jewish War Veterans, that he felt an obligation to "drop the other shoe" for Sam¬ uel L. Devine, his opponent, oii the issue of foreign aid. Shamansky's letter was writ¬ ten in response to an article in the Chronicle in which Devine wrote Gertner that he was tired of foreign rulers like King Fai¬ sal accepting aid from our coun¬ try a;nd then coming here and making critical remarks atraut segments of our population. THE TEXT of Shamansky's letter is as follows: "In his recent lettpr to you, as reported in the Clironicle, of August 26, my congressional op¬ ponent neglects to drop the oth¬ er shoe with regard to his stand against aid to foreign rulers who make remarlts critical of the United Staies. I feel that I am under an obligation to drop the other shoe for him. "NOT ONLY does he vote against Foreign Aid to those critical of the United States, he always votes against Foreign Aid to those who are friendly to the United States. For the years 1959 ftrough' 1965, the State of Israel received over $446,000,000.00 in economic aid and over $27,000,000.00 in mili¬ tary aid. My opponent, Mr. De- vine, voted against this vitally needed aid for the State of Is¬ rael, even when it was proposed by a Republican president. Gen¬ eral Eisenhower. "It has dearly been in the best interests of the United States to support the State of Israel, a friend of the United States. Mr. Devine has opposed this sup¬ port. As reported, he made no comment on King Faisal, but merely launched into an attack- on Foreign Aid. Thus, the free, friendly, democratic State of Is¬ rael fares no better in Mr. De- vine's attack on Foreign Aid than any other country, no mat¬ ter how hostile to the United States," Shamansky said. NEW YORK, (JTA) — Two members of the New York City Council announced Idst weekend that they plann^ to Introduce a local bill at the Council's next meeting, on Wed¬ nesday, requiring that city funds be deposited only In banks and trust companies that do not discriminate in their hiring practices. The move followed recent disclosures by the American Jewish Committee that, in the nine major banks In the city, only one of the 173 senior executives was Jewish — and only nine of the 727 middle-level executives were Jewish — in spite of the fact that hearty one-third of the city's general population and half of the college gradu¬ ates are Jewish/ CEnCAGO, (JTA) —A temporary, court ban onionarches or demonstrations in Jewish neighborhoods or near syna- gogueS'ln Chicago by the American Nazi Party has been extended here to September 30. U.S. District Comi; Judge Sam Pgriy issued the order on September 14 at the re¬ quest of the Jewish War Veterans, after Nazi leader George Roclcwell said he would lead his stormtroopers Into such marches In Jewish neighborhoods during the High -Holy Days. Th,e extension was asked by the Jewish War Veterans, and the Court's ruling prevented the Nazis from staging their demonstrations legally during Yom Kippur. JE'RVSAXBAI, (JTA) — A number of personalities In Government were reported to be pressing the World Jewish Congress to postpone its "Soviet Jewry Week" program, In which rallies were scheduled for November to protest the plight of Soviet jewrjr. The pressure on the WJC stems from the belief that one of the main factors that prompted the Soviet Government to cancel the scheduled tour In Russia of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was the planning of the "Soviet Jewry Week" ptotests by the Confess; . ' LONDON, (JTA)—"Thousands 6? JeW packed Moscow's Grand Chored Synagogue for Yom Kippur serviced ¦ with an overflow of 2,000 worshipers who could not get into the synagogue blocking traffic" In the street in front of the' house of worship, It was reported here from the Soviet capital. The report said crowds also jammed the city's two other synagogues, as Moscow's Jews marked the conclusion of the High Holy Days. UNITED NATIONS, N.Y., (JTA) — Abba Eban, For¬ eign Minister of Israel, who is leading a 25-nlember dele^ gation to the current session of the United Nations Gen^ eral Assembly, was scheduled to continue to ccinfer here with a number of foreign ministers and topmost delegation chairmen of several more countries. He has already met last weekend with Arthur J. Goldberg, chairman of the United States delegation here, and Maurice Couve de Miu-- vllle. Foreign Minister of France.

Soviet Jewry Rally Held In Washington BY TBUDIE B. FEhDMAN Clironlcle's Washington Correspondent Washington's first anniversary of the 'Eternal Ught Vigil For Soviet Jewry' was marked with a public rally at Lafayette Park — opposite the White House — ^last week. Participating in the rally were the leaders of the 25 national Jewish organizations which comprise the American Jewish Con¬ ference on Soviet Jewry. Dr. Isaac Franck, Executive Director of the Jewish Community Council of Greater Washington, acted as host and Aaron Goldman, chairman, National Community Relations Advisory Council, served as chairman. SENATORS JACOB K. Javlts (R.N,Y) and Abraham Ribicoff (D.Conn) were the main speak¬ ers at the ceremony which was called to protest anti-Semitism In Soviet Union, Sen, Javlts told the crowd: "Soviet Jewry must survive-. The protest in which we are joined today is at once a protest against anti-Jewish activities ahd a pro¬ test against frustrations. We can¬ not send packages of needed food or religious articles to our JeW' ish bretliren — the Soviets bar their delivery or declare them contraband. We cannot provide a refuge either here or in Israel for the oppressed — the Soviets refuse exit permits. What" we can do. is to raise our ..Voices in protest and lurge our gpyem- nient, and other free peopier and their governments, to protest. What we say has meaning and effect." • SBN. JAVITS added that the measure of success these pro¬ tests have received "must give new strength to our expressions of concern, and we pray that we will not for the second time in a g^i^ation be witness to the extinctra5f*»f a Jewish commu¬ nity." During his remarlts. Sen, RibI- Chronicling The News Editorial 2 Beal Estate 14 Society 6, 7 Shopping Guide 8 Synagogues 8 Sports 14, 15 Teen Scene 5 coff stated: "The Jews of the Soviet Union yearn for 'religious and cultural identity, Tliey yearn for the opportunity to give free expression to theh: faith ¦— and ; adherence to the bonds of unity they cherish," "UNTIL A BETTER, freer life, is the way of the Soviet Je;**? life, we must take every oppor¬ tunity to, discuss their plight, in- eluding the appi'opriate institu¬ tions of the United Nations, And we will continue to broadcast to the world the details Of this sad story. We will protest injustice- injustice expressed by language and deeds." Rabbi Israel Miller, chairman of the American Jewish Confer¬ ence on Soviet Jewry and; hon¬ orary president. Rabbinical 'Council of America, reldndled the Eternal Light which had' been us,ed_at last. year'j?.-i»l]y„ca]fiQ^at Lafayette Park. "IT IS WITH heavy hearts ^ that we gather here once again/' he said. "Last year, we had a message from President Johnson which echoed oin: prayers and hopes 'for an end to the restric¬ tive practices which prevent. Soviet Jews ttom. fuU enjoyment of their heritage.'" Rabbi Solomon J. Sharfinan, spiritual leader of Young Israel (conllnued on page 4) Reform Rabbis Ask For End To War Two leaders of Anierican Re¬ form Judaism marked the holi¬ est day in the Jewish calendar by issuing a Yom Kippur state¬ ment, calling upon theh- fellow Jews to johi with other religious forces throughout the world, in¬ cluding Pope Paul, to "stop the war in Viet Nam." Rabbi Maurice N. Eisendrath, president ot the Union of Ameri¬ can Hebrew Congregations, and Rabbi Jacob J. Welnstein, presi¬ dent of the Centrtil Conference of American Rabbis, appealed to the conscience of mankind in these words: "At this time of self-reckoning we cry out in mortal anguish against the suf¬ fering of God's children. We heed the voices of sanity and of hu¬ manity, which rising tiuoughout the world, seek to stay the oh- rush of destruction.''
