MEXICO CITY (Sep. 4)
Twenty-five prominent Mexican writers and journalists participated in a compilation of special articles on the June war between Israel and the Arab states, published in Spanish here today by the Central Jewish Committee. All of the authors endorsed Israel’s position prior to and during the Six-Day War, declaring the conflict had been brought about by Arab provocations and aggressions. A forward to the pamphlet was written by Sergio Nudeistejer, the American Jewish Committee’s representative on the Central Jewish Committee.
The Mexican Government Ministry of Education, through its National Institute of Fine Arts, is one of the patrons of the annual festival of Jewish music and song, which got under way here this weekend. The second of a series of concerts under that patronage was held here Saturday night at the Government’s Palace of Fine Arts. Featured was the American opera star, Jan Peerce, as soloist, in a concert given by Hazamir, the Jewish community choir here, conducted by Abel Eisenberg.
