This was the ifnanimoiis recoinmendation dt a special committee ' Gonsistiiigaf rqtresentatives of the Coluihbus Board of Rabbis, Hie Jewish Center and the United Jewish Fund and Council. Recently a committee was formed upoa the initiative of .the UJFC with Harry Sch¬ wartz as chairman to give thoughtful study to the matter . of Jewish programming in the com¬ munity, and at the Jewish Center, in particular, alimg with prograihming on the Sabbath at the Jewish 'Center. -^ A series of meetings were held to secure the views of various elements in the community and particularly that'of the rabbinate. Agreement was reached early that ttii^ mattor was of great ; sigiiificiance ¦. to the ^ i Jewish community and required the fidl iiiterest and . support of ail .major elements of the community. FVom the start the spirit of common concern and cooperation was present with an eagerness to do something in an area which required a great deal of attrition. The Jewish Center made available much information and matoial consisting of criteria, guidelines and specific types of programs. The rabbinate displayed a great deal of insight and knowledge to provide for quality and effective programming. With full recognition of the sensitivity of the subject ' under, study and discussion, with all views given equal importance and respect, and after full discussion the following proposal was approved by the committee, transmitted to the Jewish Center and overwhelmingly adopted by the Center for imidementation. 1. Jewish programming is a community concern along with the individual collective responsibility of various s^ments of the (immunity, such as the Jewish educators and the schools, the rabbinate and the congregations, the Jewish Center and its various departments, and other organizations. Each organization has a responsibility for such programming. 2. It should be recognized, in the-areas of Jewish programming, that; those mattas df'a reUgiouS iuid spiritiial nature are the prime concern of the rab¬ binate, their synagogues, and temples. 3. Though Jewish programming is not limited to any oine segment, in¬ stitution or organization, it is a fact that resources of sidlled aiid experienced lay and prof^sional personnel and funds ai-e limited. It is recommended, therefore, that maximum use be made of existing community resources through exchange and cooperation.

Foreign Ministry experts said they doubted that the new pact would affect or be affected by the projected federation of Egypt with Libya and Syria which is . slated for ratification in September. The treaty applies oiily to Egypt, the experts said, since the federation is not a merger. President Sadat told a meeting of the Egyptian National Assembly that the pact provided, for the flrst time, a long-range basis for Soviet aid to Egypt, in¬ cluding training in the use of modern weapons. He reiterated he would jneygr accept" territoriar con- cessions to Israel for the raisals sake of a peace agreement but stressed also that Egypt still hoped for a peaceful settlement. In a related development, the two major Soviet newspapers, Pravda and Izvestia, denounced efforts by the United States to promote a Mideast set¬ tlement and to improve rdations with Egypt. An editorial m Pravda, organ of the Soviet Communist party, called the Egyptian-Soviet pact "a new blow at the plans of intonational im¬ perialism which is trying to drive a wedge in the relations of the two coun¬ tries." Izvestia, the government organ, said the only settlement the United States wants in the Mideast is that that would meet "its own unperialistic ends."
