COLS. 0. 43211 EXOH JERUSALEM (WNS) — In the wake of demands from the public and opposition leaders in the Knesset, the government is considering reinstating the death penalty for terrorists. But Justice Minister Haim Zadok, in making the announcement, cautioned that "we should not be guided by feelings of rage and disgust but rather by the basic issue which is its possible influence on the war against terrorist organizations". Restoration of the death penalty was one of the principal demands by demonstrators here from Maalot, Safad and Kiryat Shemona. NEW YORK (WNS) — Despite the many studies under Jewish auspices showing the problem of the Jewish poor in getting access to government aid, the City of New York does not have enough information to come up with ways to handle the problem, according to Rabbi David Haymovitz, the new director of the office of special projects of the city's Social Service Department. He said he was aware of the problems of elderly Jews living in neglect in deteriorated areas and of those poor Jews living outside the city's 26 designated poverty areas who were neglected in city poverty aid programs for that reason. But Rabbi Haymovitz said additional information is needed for his office to make detailed recommendations to the Human Resources Administration, the city's super- agency which handles welfare and anti-poverty programs. Rabbi Haymovitz met recently for seven hours with representatives of a wide variety of Jewish* organizations, in the first of a series of fact-finding sessions. The meetings was arranged after Sanford Solender, executive vice-president of the New York Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, charged that the Jewish poor, particularly Hasidic Jews, were being igffored by anti-poverty agencies and were-harassed at welfare centers by other minority groups who resented their presence. No Response from UN On Terrorism Issue; Release Of Post-Munich Report Withheld by Yitzhak Rabi UNITED NATIONS, (JTA)' — Rabbi Israel Miller, chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, said his meeting on May 21 with UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim left him "with a feeling of pessimism" because there was not real response from the United Nations toward the problem of terrorism. Rabbi Miller led a group of American Jewish leaders who met for 45 minutes with Waldheim to press for UN action against terrorism lest the in¬ ternational organization "by its failure to act" appear "an accomplice to murder". But at a press conference later, Rabbi Miller said that although Waldheim is "a fine gentleman with his heart in the right place" he is powerless to act as far as solving the problem of terrorism. The Jewish leaders urged that UNRWA Commissioner Sir John Rennie, stationed in Beirut "root out" terrorist groups he ad quartered in Palestinian refugee camps run by the UN in Lebanon and refuse to give UN funds to camps that serve as terrorist bases. According to Rabbi Miller, Waldheim said (CONTINUED ON PAGE 16) Disengagement Accord Stalled by Tuvia Mendelson JERUSALEM, (JTA) - Secretary of State Henry A.

He attended a scientific con¬ ference and was able to visit and speak with many of the activists in the Moscow Jewish community.

Kissinger flew back to Damascus following a meeting of the American and Israeli negotiating teams. U.S. officials indicated that he would return to Washington on May 26 at the latest. Hopes that an Israeli-. Syrian disengagement ac¬ cord (would have been signed by the end of last week, or at least initialed "by both'sides, faded as serious obstacles developed over ' non- territorial issues. In¬ formation Minister Shimon Peres announced after the negotiating meeting that the Knesset has postponed a special session which the government had requested for May 24 to hear a major announcement on ' disengagement. He said the meeting was put off "simply Scenes from the 1974 Regional N.C.S.Y. Convention held recently at Beth Jacob Synagogue. Jewish Teens To Study In Memory Of Ma'alot A. historical event took" place Saturday morning May 18 in Columbus during the recently held Regional Convention of the National Conference of Synagogue Youth, when during his sermon Rabbi -David Stavsky of the Beth Jacob Congregation asked for ten teenagers to volunteer to study Mishnayos in memory of the innocent teenagers who were brutally killed in Maalot Israel the previous week. To his,surprise and to the amazement of every one in the packed synagogue, fifty four teenagers stood up and pledged to study twenty chapters of Mishnayot this year. At the closing banquet an additional sixty teenagers signed their names for this special project. The Mishne is part of the Talmud. It is a six volume work of Jewish - law and tradition which is considered part of the Talmud. Since the word "Mishne" in Hebrew has the same letters as the word Neshame (soul), for the, centuries the study of Mishnayos was considered an important mystical elevation for the soul of the deceased. The Teenagers of the N.C.S.Y. Regional; Convention stood up as one "to study Torah (Mishnayos) this entire year in memory because negotiations are still going on". Foreign Minister Abba Eban, who held a surprise midnight meeting with Kissinger after he returned from Damascus on May 22 said, "We still hope, but I cannot promise, that the agreement will be completed in the next few days". Damascus radio, announcing that Kissinger would return to Syria, said the Secretary represen¬ tatives to carry on negotiations in order to reach an agreement. The mood among officials and observers here on May 23 wasv,' increasingly pessimistic in sharp contrast to the near euphoria that prevailed May 19 when it was announced that Kissinger had achieved Israeli and Syrian agreement on a disengagement line. U.S. officials had expressed the view earlier that once the line was settled, everything elpe would "fall into place".

The sixth Regional Con¬ vention held at the Beth Jacob Synagogue saw four hundred delegates and their advisors from numerous cities of the Central East Region in what was con¬ sidered one of the best of their conventions.

The key feature will be a presentation of the design and features of the unique new Columbus Torah Academy building by Mr. George Acock, of the firm Acock, White and Associates, architects of the building.' Mr. Acock will utilize an architectural model of the building and following a question and answer; period, will ac¬ company parents and in¬ terested members of the community, to the actual site for additional discussion. Members of the community, especially those interested in Jewish education, will be impressed by the manner in which the physical aspects of the building have been blended with the special requirements /of the Columbus Torah Academy concepts and ■ needs. The resulting structure is the result not only of the fine efforts of Mr. Acock, but also of inputs provided from a one year study by Ohio State University, commissioned by Columbus Torah Academy. The annual meeting will include the election of new officers and board members, and a brief report ,of the- educational highlights of the year. The meeting is scheduled for Sunday, June 2 at 2:30 p.m. at Temple Israel. Because of the widespread interest shown in the Torah Academy, its educational objectives, and its activities, the entire Jewish com¬ munity is invited to see the unveiling of the plans of a truly unique structure to serve Jewish education in Columbus.
