Conservatives Ask U.S. to Enlist Soviet Aid on Israel-arab Issues

Delegates from 155 congregations of the New York Metropolitan Region of the United Synagogues of America — representing 440,000 members — called on the United States and the United Nations today to exercise “every effort to end Arab belligerency and to resolve the Middle East crisis by bringing the Arab nations and Israel together around the peace table.”

Meeting at a conference on Israel and the Conservative Movement at the Plainview Jewish Center, here, the delegates approved a resolution presented by David Zucker, regional vice-president for Israel Affairs, which also recommended that “our Government now seek the cooperation of the Soviet Union to bring about a relaxation of tensions in the area.”
