of the Jewish Federation of

special interest to members of
the Catholic and Jewish com-
Father Pawlikowski,
professor of social ethics at the
Catholic Theological Union,
and Rabbi Rudin, director of
the Interreligious Affairs
Department of the American
Jewish Committee, will be "In
Dialogue" on Wednesday
evening, Jan. 16, 7:30 p.m., at
St. Ignatius Loyola Cathedral,
9999 North Military Trail,
Palm Beach Gardens. The
topic will be "After Vatican
11: How Do We View Each
Other?" They will also ad-
dress the general session the
next day, Jan. 17, 9 a.m., at
Temple Emanu-El, 190 North
County Road, Palm Beach.
The Thursday morning
program begins at 8:30 a.m.

There will be a $2 fee for the

Mrs. Leviton and Mrs.
Couch explained that for the
last several months a core
group from both religions has
been meeting to discuss a wide
range of subjects pertinent to
learning about each other's
faith. "Our ten sessions have
been very productive and
open. We are pleased to invite
the community to the Jewish-
Catholic Encounter to en-
courage discussions on issues
vital to inter-faith exploration.
Father Pawlikowski and
Rabbi Rudin, who have been
involved in Catholic-Jewish
dialogue on a national level,
are dynamic speakers who will

'Let Our People Go*
Community To Hold Soviet Jewry Rally
Shirlec Blonder, chair of the
Soviet Jewry Task Force of the
Community Relations Council
of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, has an-
nounced that the task force
will sponsor a Community
Plea for Soviet Jewry on
Sunday, Jan. 27, 7:30 p.m., at
Temple Emanu-El, Palm
Beach. Lynn Singer, national
past president of the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews and
executive director, Long Is-
land Committee for Soviet
Jewry, will be the guest
According to Mrs. Blonder
reports of the KGB's increased
harassment of Jews make it
doubly imperative this year
that this community lends its
support to publicizing the
plight of Soviet Jewry.
"In October of this year,
only 29 Jews were permitted to
leave the Soviet Union. This
compares with 90 persons
granted exit visas last October
and 4,000 persons per month
granted exit visas in 1979. We
must educate ourselves about
the situation and let our voices
join with those throughout the
world in applying persistent
pressure to the government of
the Soviet Union to 'let our
people go,' stated Mrs.
Persecution of Hebrew
teachers and Jewish cultural
activists, which have led to
actual arrests in many in-
stances, have caused more
than 100 Jews in the Soviet
Union to participate in a series
of round-robin hunger strikes.
In solidarity with their plight,
the Soviet Jewry Task Force
recently held a fast corre-
sponding with the nationwide
Human Rights Day.
Mrs. Blonder noted thai
public opinion in America and
throughout the world acts as
an insurance policy for the
potential emigres' survival.
