Jewish community, the largest in Germany, urged West European leaders to take coordinated, decisive action against the spread of neo-Nazi violence. The community leader, Heinz Galinski, made his statement in the aftermath of the fatal bombing of a synagogue in Paris and of the rash of rightwing "terror in France, West Germany and Italy. Galinski charged that the French authorities were too soft Jri dealing with anti-Semitism. He has been warning for some time against rightwing and leftwing terrorism in Europe. .West German police have uncovered terrorist plots against him and other Jewish leaders. Palestinian Arab Is Chief Suspect PARIS, (JTA)—French police are looking for a Palestinian Arab with a Cypriot passport as the likeliest suspect in last Friday night's bomb attack against a Paris synagogue. The police say they have conclusive evidence that the man, whose identity was not revealed, bought the motorcycle which -carried the bomb used in the attack. Four people died in the explosion and 33 more were injured. 'Formal'Autonomy Talks To Resume . WASHINGTON, (JTA)—Discussions will be , resumed "formally" on West Bank-Gaza autonomy starting on an unspecified date this week in Washington, the State Department said last week. The announcement appeared to contradict official Egyptian reports that the talks will be resumed liere Oct. 14, but only to discuss "modalities" on how; to proceed with the negotiations that Egypt broke off in August. ,'s 1' "*' Holocaust Memorial Permanent'"T' WASHINGTON, (JTA)—President Carter has signed into law legislation authorizing the permanent continuation of the U.S.. Holocaust Memorial Council, saying it "should " symbolize" America's commitment against allowing "such a crime' against decency, civility and humanity" to occur again. The legislation, adopted by both houses of Congress without dissent, will bring about the establishment of a permanent national museum in Washington and annual national observances of the Holocaust. The Council will be under the leadership of the distinguished author and survivor Elie Wiesel. Jerome Solove Rae Solove Heritage ¥IS9age Solove Clinic Will Be Dedicated On Nov. 2 Sylvia C. Schecter, President of Heritage Village, is pleased to announce that the Dedication of the Rae and Jerome Solove Health Assessment Clinic will take place on Sunday, Nov. 2, at 10 a.m. at Heritage Tower. The Health Assessment Clinic concept has been an important part of the master plan of Heritage Village for sometime. The Clinic will be staffed by a professional nurse and will be supervised - iegin: Israel Takes 'Grave' View of New Pact By David Landau and Yitzhak Shargil JERUSALEM, (JTA)—Premier Menachem Begin said that Israel takes a "grave" view of the new Soviet-Syrian friendship and military cooperation pact and of "the growing Jordanian involvenlent in the Iraqi war efforts" against Iran. Speaking to reporters at the Defense Ministry, Begin said it was safe to assume that Syria and the Soviet Union have signed a secret agreement that parallels their publicly signed accord. He contended that this affected the entire free world and that he would discuss it with President Carter when they meet in Washington next month. Israeli analysts said that President Hafez Assad of Syria apparently decided that he had to enter into a" formal pact with the Soviets, something he hesitated to do before, because the Iraqi- Iranian war left Syria isolated ' among the Arab states, air of which except Libya, are supporting Iraq. Because of Syria's long- -standihg'rivaify-with* Iraq;' Assad also may have felt he could not allow Iraq to draw closer to Moscow as a result of the war. But the Israelis believe it is altogether unlikely that Syria would join the war by taking military action against Iraq. This is because Iraq has portrayed the war as an Arab struggle against non-Arab power and Assad, heading a minority Alawite Moslem regime, could hardly cast his lot with the non-Arab side in actual combat. With respect to Jordan's assistance to Iraq, Begin suggested that there is a danger that the Iraqis will sell Soviet war equipment to Jordan as a gesture of gratitude and "this would present a direct danger to us.*' He implied that the U.S. should cancel its proposed sale of tanks to Jordan. Deputy Premier Yigael Yadin also warned that King Hussein of Jordan was making a serious mistake when he joined Iraq against Iran. Meanwhile, the Jordanian port of Aqaba is a scene of heavy activity. But Israeli circles believe that Amman is simply trying to impress the world that its backing for Iraqi is in earnest. They point out that so far, only one Iraqi-flag ship with war material—from an Eastern European country—discharged cargo at Aqaba. It is believed to have consisted of anti-aircraft guns and ammunition. Nevertheless, Jordan has become a supply route for Iraq, avoiding the Persian Gulf and the Iranian navy. But a shortage of trucks io carry the equipment from Aqaba to Bagdad has caused a bottleneck and the cargos are piling up on the Aqaba docks. Israeli military planners are taking account of the possibility that the Iraqi-Jordan relationship will lead to heightened tension between Jordan and Syria. Israel is Noted fimmmi Mmmlk To deeply troubled by Jordan's logistical support for Iraq which could broaden into a full-fledged alliance and King Hussein's increasingly h3rd line and warlike statements in recent months aimed at Israel. The Jordan- Jan media has'referred to the Persian Gulf war as a prelude to the "purification of Jerusalem from the infidel." TheJU.S. and Britain have already warned Jordan- against any serious involvement in the Persian Gulf war. (On a BBC television interview, Hussein confirmed that his army has been put on a state oTalert and that supplies were reaching Iraq by way' of Aqaba. However, he said, there were "no imminent , (CONTINUED ON PAGE 7) On Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in The Jewish Center, 1125 Col- . lege Ave., the Columbus -Jewish'community will have the opportunity to meet Igor Igor Tufeld ra Kan® To Head Revitalized by the Community Health and Nursing service agency.

Yenkin noted that Kane has had extensive experience in the field of community relations both with the Community Relations Committee and in regional and national responsibilities - with the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. In accepting the appointment, Kane stated his major goal as "the restructuring and re'vitilization of the CRC to make it the focal point for the Jewish Community dealing with the challenges of the coming year." He said that "the major foci of the CRC agenda continues to be Christian-Jewish relations, Israel, Soviet Jewry and Urban Affairs, but with some new approaches.

A participant in —Jewish* activities, '-he-was- beaten up after leaving the Moscow synagogue in 1973 while two Russian policemen , looked'on. Jn 1976, Igor was arrested and served a 15-day sentence for "holligatiism" for participating in a demonstration to protest the denial of visas .to Refuseniks. In 1977, Igor received his exit visa! He now lives in Jerusalem, where he studies International Relations at_ the Hebrew University and" campaigns for the release of his - parents and other Refuseniks. His father, Vladimir, has been demoted five times g from his position as an elec- * trical engineer when he became a Refusenik because -he has refused to capitulate to his superiors demands that he resign. Instead, Tufeld protested in writing to Soviet authorities that he was forced to leave because of his desire to live in Israel. As officially sanctioned harassment of the Tufelds - continues, Vladimir faces another, more deadly, "Catch 22" situation. Recently hospitalized following a suspected heart attack, the hospital administration successfully ejected him and withheld needed medical treatment when his Refusenik status was discovered. Tufeld has received neither proper medication nor written confirmation of his illness from the hospital, resulting ih the institution of legal' proceedings by supervisors who charge that Tufeld is feigning illness.
