We have a good community, one with good agencies and institutions which make foe a healthy, dynamic Jewish life right here in Columbus. ' "In addition, we have,an obligation to our national beneficiaries, which look to us to help maintain essential services for Our people in this., country. Then, too, thousands of Jews in countries around the world need our help, and we have promises to keep to them as well.

The Beth Din ruled that if he wanted a divorce he must pay for the children's upbringing. NEW YORK < WNS)-The first Soviet Jewish family arrived in-^he U.S. under the Attorney General's "parole authority" which permits him to'waive procedural red tape to admit aliens without delay.

NEW YORK — Leo Pfeffer, special counsel of the American- Jewish Congress and draftsman of the section of Humane Slaughter Act challenged in Federal Court last week, said recently there was "no .doubt of the constitutionality of the, provision." In a statement, Mr. Pfeffer declared: "The section of the law that defines humane slaughtering to -include the Jewish method of slaughtering is entirely constitutional. Indeed, the absence of such a provision from the law would cast grave doubts on Its con- Dr. Goldman Charges Facts" Explaining Disinvitation LONDON (WNS) — Dr. Nahum Goldmann, president ;"of the World Jewish Congress, charged that Louis A. Pincus, president of the' "•: World Zionist Organization Executive, had ; "distorted the facts" in explaining why Dr. Gold- ' mann's invitation to address. the festive session of the 2r\th .World Zionist Congress, which would celebrate 75 years of Zionism, had been '-.' withdrawn. Pincus had said . I "it is not possible to conduct "/ a. struggle on two levels at the same time—namely the struggle for the right of aliya andthe struggle for the right of Soviet Jews to a Jewish life." He said that while-the Soviet Jews had themselves chosen to fight for aliya, Dr. Goldmann had given priority for their right to live as Jews in the USSR., In denying Pincus' charge, Dr. Goldmann said "There is no difference-of opinion that at this moment priority should1 be given , to the struggle for the right of aliya. and it is absolutely incorrect that in my speech to the Board of Deputies I was reversing the order, of priorities in the' Jewish demands. But to go so far as (CONTINUED ON PAGE 3) stitutionality. The Humane Slaughter Act recognizes what has long been known and universally acknowledged — that the Jewish method of slaughtering is as humane as, if not more humane than, any other method of slaughtering . in use anywhere in the world." Mr. Pfeffer drafted the section in behalf of the Joint Advisory Committee of the National Jewish Community .Relations Advisory Council and the Synagogue Council of America. He has served as attorney for the committee since its founding in 1946. The provision defining ikosher slaughtering as humane was enacted by Congress in 1958 following the presentation of evidence to a subcommittee of the Senate __ Agricultural Com¬ mittee i that kosher slaughtering was the most humane method * of slaughtering known. Senator Hubert Humphrey,- Democrat of Minnesota, 'presided-at the Senate sub¬ committee hearing. The suit challenging the kosher slaughtering division of the'Humane Slaughtering Act was filed ih;">; Federal Court here Monday by Henry Mark Holzer ot New. York. The suit seeks^-the con¬ vening of a special three- judge court to declare !un-- constitutional Federal and state laws permitting kosher slaughtering.
