There is general re- i Israel Bond Reception Sept. 21 To Honor Martin Hoffman Martin Hoffman, Beth Jacob-Israel Bond Chairman, will be honored for outstanding service to Israel at a Reception on Sept. 21 at the home of Rabbi and Mrs. David Stavsky marking Israel's 30th Anniversary, to be held by/the Columbus Committee- for State of Israel Bonds.

"X" persons in attendance and we may lose our vote; 'X" persons plus you and we can win." "The Jewish Center Board,", stated Gilbert, "will vote upon the basis of their perception of the best interest of the Jewish community." He feels, however, that the Board will not attempt to discount the stated aspirations of this community. "In a democratic system the elected officials have the final vote on issues but they derive their power from the governed. Those"-constituents whose feelings are ignored have their inalienable right to express their dissent. "It is this time honored process that makes your participation Monday night so vital. The Columbus Jewish Center Board is receptive to your feelings." Gilbert also called for the immediate return of all petitions and invites the community to sign and return petitions included in the .FOCAL ad upon the back page of this issue.

NY"), speaking at a solidarity dinner at the Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue here last Thursday night, on the occasion of the launching of the 1978 Combined Jewish Appeal and Israel Emergency Fund, said that the American people "will not be willing to support any peace plan which Israel will consider as a mortal danger." Javits said that the Camp David summit conference "was brought on by a state of desperation and the President of the United States recognized that it was taken as , an extreme measure." He said that "it seems clear to me" .that Egyptian President Anwar Sadat's "strategy was to force -the United States to propose its own plan of peace tilted towards Egypt." The Senator noted that ^With^,^€L Soviet ..Ujoioa. '%uiel_ng,up the situation in" the Middle East, the U.S. emerged as the only credible ; party to both Egypt and Isrel." Despite the American, sale of planes to Saudi Arabia and Egypt last spring "it is a great tribute to Israel that its confidence in the United States was not shaken and it is an equal tribute to the U.S. that it remained loyal in its commitments to Israel," Javits ob- sered. As to the Camp David .talks, he said he believes that what will emerge regarding a settlement "will be a meaningful contribution 'to peace. I hope that Sadat will speak not only about guarantees for Israel in terms of paper guarantees but of real guarantees which will give Israel a feeling of total security. The alternative to peace may be war." Javits also stated that he hoped the Aswan formula which . Carter projected during his visit with Sadat last January "will prevail and that the Palestinians will have a voice in those deliberations which will be a matter of the future and no more." Carter said at Aswan Jan. 4 that one of his principles for peace was, "there must be a resolution of the Palestinian problem in all its aspects. The resolution of the Palestinian problem must recognize the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people and enable the Palestinians to participate in the determination of their own future." Unlike Carter's previous references to a Palestinian state, the Aswan statement did not' contain this reference | and left open the specifics of the future for the Palestinians. Two Proposed Sites To Be Presented At Open Meeting On September 18 The two proposed sites being considered for the new Jewish Center building by the Board of Trustees of The Jewish Center will be presented to the Jewish community at an Open Meeting on Monday, September 18,at "7:436 p.m. in theCeritier'sau- ditorium.
