We urge this committee to report tins Bill with a recommendation that it not be passed. Gordon quoted article 1, Section 4 of the Indiana Constitution which states a no preference shall be Given by Law to any Creed religious society or Mode of worship and no Man shall be compelled to attend erect or support any place of of worship or to maintain any ministry against his consent.

Goldstein executive director released today a letter sent to All Indiana congressmen and senators in the name of the councils. This letter dealt with the refusal of the West German government to extend its statute of limitations on nazi War crimes. The letter is As follows the Indiana and Indianapolis jewish Community rela town crier by g. M. Cohen we were about ready to give up on our Campaign to seek some Way in which Saharah the Filah and by Nai torah congregations might unite to better serve not Only the orthodox Community but also the Community at Large. But Only a few moments ago rabbi Solomon Silberberg of Saharah Tefil Lah called to present his version and it has some Validity to it. According to rabbi Silberberg in View of the fact that the orthodox May not ride to services on the Sabbath and holidays the orthodox Community would be better served with two congregations spaced some Miles apart. Our response to rabbi Silberberg was that this made sense and if his position is Strong it would prevail before any group of thinking people who had the orthodox Community a welfare at heart. But rabbi Silberberg rejected our approach a that of calling a group of Lay people together to hear both sides and then report to the Community on their efforts to unite the two congregations. He did not however oppose an alternative we suggested a that a Din torah be called to Render a decision. A Din torah is a rabbinical court where the disputants each select one rabbi to preside and the two selected then choose a third to make up the full panel. The ruling is binding. We believe by Nai torah should be willing to accept the idea of a Din torah too. The procedure has the value of an orderly approach to a Community problem. The decision will be accepted by the Community and the loser will have the Good continued on Back Page Cantor Zalkin to role in a Elijah at sing title Cowes Hall the glorious music of Mendelssohn a Quot Elijah a with the title role Sung by Cantor Robert Zalkin and including a cast of Over 200 in the chorus and orchestra will be presented at Clowes Hall on sunday March 7th, at 8 30.

Cantor Zalkin tons councils Are very concerned about the refusal of the West German government to extend its statute of limitations on nazi War crimes. We would like to bring our Point of View on Thia matter to your attention. Our agencies Are in full agreement with the statements of the conference of presidents of major jewish organizations a group representing the largest and most representative of the National jewish organizations. In part they have said a it is widely recognized by civilized nations and it was reaffirmed at Nuremberg that major crimes against humanity must not be regarded As Ordinary crimes nor can they be subject Only to the provisions of Ordinary Domestic codes. Recently the French National Assembly approved unanimously legislation which declares that a crimes against humanity As they Are defined by United nations Resolution of feb. 13, 1946, and by the charter of the International tribunal Are not subject to a statute of limitation by their very nature. We had hoped that West Germany a signature to the United nations genocide convention constituted recognition of this Principe i which supports the broadest inspect for human life. Its Pief ent attitude however Forstl tubes a Complete negation of is processed adherence to this moral Prui Ciple. There is no Way of establishing the exact number of nazi mass murderers who have not been apprehended or against whom charges have not been lodged. According to Robert m. S. Kempner a . Prosecutor at the Nuremberg trials and or. Simon Wiesenthal a noted War crimes investigator in Vienna their number May run into the Many thousands. However As it was pointed out by the presidents conference a the question of numbers is irrelevant to what is fundamentally and most significantly a moral Issue. Whether there Are Many or few the possibility that some War criminals guilty of mass atrocities and genocide would escape prosecution is a situation which must be repugnant to the seared conscience of the world. Every nazi War criminal guilty of these crimes must be brought to Justice. Each person implicated in mass murder of human beings must be made aware that As Long As he lives and wherever he May hide he faces the Prospect of being made accountable in a court of we Hope that through your Good offices you will be Able to take appropriate Steps to indicate to the West German government the concern of Many of your Indiana constituents about this important matter the letter said
