WASHINGTON (Aug. 13)
Three Jews, including the president and vice-president of a Washington synagogue, were attacked and beaten by teen-aged boys as they left the prayer services.
The three, all nearing 70, were set upon by a group of teen-agers following Sabbath services at the Southeast Hebrew Congregation. Abraham Johan was slapped viciously by a tall youth as a crowd of about 20 roared with laughter. The teenagers also struck Charles Macklin, president of the synagogue, and Josef Litman, the vice-president, on their departure from the synagogue. Metropolitan police, who investigated the assaults, said they did not have a written report on the case.
