Theodore Mann For Carter l JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Theodore Mann, immediate past, chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, has come out publicly in support of President Carter's reelection. Speaking at a public debate here organized by the American Jewish Congress, Mann said; "We are not trying to choose the perfect President, but only the best one. With all his weaknesses and mistakes, Jimmy Carter comes out first—as the best candidate by far—as I weigh all the factors in the balance." Howard Squadron, Mann's successor at the Presidents Conference, predicted that Jews would play a crucial role" in determing the outcome of the American Presidential election because of thejrjieavy representation in New York State wfticfi Carter"must win" to~gain reelectibn.'Nb democrat in this century had been elected without winning either N.Y; or Calif., he noted, and it was to be assumed that Ronald Reagan, a local man and a former governor, would top Carter in Calif. Anderson Visits Israel BONN,' (JTA)-r-Independent Presidential candidate John Anderson stated that there is justification for Israel's settlements on the West Bank and that they are very, clearly related t|o Israel's security needs. In an interview published in Die \yelt last week, Anderson said that even President Anwar Sadat saw " justification for the settlements on security grounds and that he himself accepts that approach. The candidate criticized U.S." diplomacy nf the Middle East, claiming that it was as much hostage to Arab oil as the 52 Americans held in Iran are hostages. He also suggested that Americans should pay as much for gasoline as Germans pay, whi&h would mean adding more than a dollar a gallon to the present price. He said that even if he weren't a candidate he would hot vote for either President Carter or Ronald Reagan.' _ ' Rabbi Assails Birth Control NEW YORK (JTA)—A denunciation of the increasing frequency of family planning among Jews and concern over the "rampant ignorance" of many Jews about Jewish religious laws on marital relations were expressed by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson. He spoke at the 25th annual convention of the Lubavitch Women's Organization, held at the' Hasidic group's world headquarters in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. He criticized the silence of what he said were many'rabbis who hesitate to speak out publicly on the traditional stand on family planning and about observance ''of "Taharas Hamis- pacha," dealing with marital and sexual relations. He spoke against a background of growing evidence that the American Jewish family is achieving, by choice, zero population growth. Schneerson said that "as a result of this disturbing "void and painfully neglected area of Jewish life, many, many of our Jewish men and women do not know that in most instances, Jewish law prohibits family planning and the prevention of birth,-and that Jewish Law prescribes many details regarding marital relations." He declared that Jewish Laws on the'family "must be taught to young brides and grooms; to young couples, as well as to older couples, so that they may become aware of the particular laws pertinent to each stage of their-lives.'*- Receiving an endorsement from Mayor Tom Moody on' "Survival Kit 1," pictured above are: David Baum, President, and Danny Conison, Vice President, of Heart of Ohio AZA., Heart Of Ohio AZA Begins New 'Survival Kit 1' Project Heart of Ohio AZA #55 has put together for the citizens of Columbus, "Survival Kit 1."

By Joseph Polakoff DETROIT, .(JTA) — Jewish Republicans who have been in the forefront of the campaigns of Ronald Reagan and George Bush for the highest office in the land enthusiastically hailed Presidential nominee Reagan's choice of Bush as his running mate and predicted today that this combination is sure to triumph in the national elections next November. Industrialist Gordon Zacks of Columbus, who was an early supporter of Bush's primary campaign for the Presidential nomination and served as his national vice chairman of finance and deputy chairman of ' his national political campaign, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency: . "For the sake of the country, the free world and the State of Israel, Ronald Reagan has selected the most qualified candidate. I commend hfs judgement Al am' confident that the ticket of Reagan and Bush will go on to victory in November.'' In announcing to the convention last week that former President .Gerald Ford would not be* his running mate and that Bush would, Reagan said of his erstwhile primaries .rival that Bush "can support the platform across the board." In his campaign for the Presidential nomination. Bush had expressed strong support for Israel's security but he would not advocate moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The GOP platform says "Republicans believe Jerusalem should remain an undivided city with continued free and unimpeded access" to all holy places by people of all faiths." Bush, who was a Presidential hopeful > during the Republican primaries but who was defeated, made it clear during his bid that he was a staunch friend of Israel. In one of his strongest statements on the issue he told some 40 Jewish leaders at a meeting sponsored by the American Jewish Committee last October that Israel must be kept strong and its security must never be traded for oil. Bush, a former Ambassador to the United Nations, . also said he continued to believe that the U.S. has "special relations" with Is: rael. He also affirmed that he opposes any negotiations with- j the Palestine Liberation 'Organization, claiming that the U.S. credibility as an ally would diminish if it reversed it position on the PLO. An indication of the Republican leadership's close attention to Jewish ' voters, primarily in the crucial New York State elections, was evidenced last week by the selection of New York State National Committeeman, Richard Rosenbaum of Rochester, to be the first of 12 delegates who spoke as seconders of Rea- gan's nomination.
