Download PDF for this date

President Kennedy was urged today “to appoint a special fact-finding commission of eminent scholars, diplomats and educators to explore all the possibilities for bringing about a permanent peace between Israel and her Arab neighbors. ” The suggestion was voiced at the 25th annual convention of the Rabbinical Council of America, an Orthodox rabbinical group, by Rabbi Charles Weinberg, president of the organization. He said that “the commission should devote full time to the task by traveling in the area during the next year. “
