powers whose diplomatic conflict colours and permeates the whole
structure of international relations. And it is not the least of its achieve-
ments, as the spokesman of the United Nations testified at Stockholm,
that the Congress has in its own way served the ideal of universality by
drawing its adherents from countries with the most varying political and
social regimes.
The appeal, indeed, could more fitly be described as an act of faith.
The rights and facilities it once accorded to its Jewish citizens the Soviet
Union can restore. And that this can be done within the framework of its
distinctive social and economic organisation is demonstrated by the States
which share its ideology and support its international policies.
The Stockholm Assembly was not merely preoccupied with Jewish
survival for its own sake, though the right to life is as valid for groups as for
individuals. What is sought to ensure was creative survival, the full
expression of the creative powers, inherent in the Jewish personality in the
fields of religion, learning, art and all the multifarious activities that
constitute a living and growing tradition.
The Assembly's reaffirmation of support for the State of Israel must be
understood in this context. Israel is more than a home for the homeless,
though this in itself would justify its existence. It is the expression of the
creative wish of the Jewish people in bringing to fulfilment an immemorial
ideal which has sustained it through all the vicissitudes of the Jewish
experience. It is the inalienable right of Jewish communities not only to
organise their spiritual and material resources, to maintain and develop
a Jewish way of life wherever they are, but to participate, whether by
immigration or otherwise, in the renaissance of a Jewish State which will
seek to give living expression to the spiritual and social ideals which are of
the substance of the Jewish tradition.
A creative survival of the Jewish people implies also a renewal of its will
to make its own contribution to the achievement of an international
community based on permanent peace among nations and on universal
respect for the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals, groups and
peoples. This the Assembly recognized in its resolutions. They were
not based only on considerations of expediency, compelling though these
in themselves are. The Assembly was at pains to emphasise the dis-
tinctively Jewish contribution which its members could bring to the service
of their citizenships :
"As the heirs of the prophetic tradition which through all the changes
of history has remained faithful to the vision of a world united in the
service of justice and peace, and as the successors of the Jewish genera-
tions which endured the unspeakable horrors of wars and international
conflict, Jewish communities everywhere will take their place in the
forefront of the struggle for a peace founded on mutual understanding.
and the reign of law".





The Plenary Assembly recognized that these goals will not be achieved
by the struggle against hostile forces without, however successfully waged,
unless the internal Jewish battle is won-the battle for the reaffirmation
of ancient Jewish values, for the deepening of the Jewish consciousness
and for the reinforcement or restoration to every Jewish child of its Jewish
heritage. The obligations of the Congress in the field of Jewish culture, as
revealed in these resolutions, may seem less dramatic than in the field of
public affairs, but the Assembly left no doubt that it considered them no
less important.
Yet a rebirth of Jewish culture must in large measure depend on the
freedoms, the opportunities and the facilities which it is a central purpose
of the political activities of the Congress to ensure. If Jewish life is not
to be replaced, by a series of unconnected local and tolerated cults, the
time has come for a new definition of Jewish emancipation. The Jew
must be free to bring his whole heritage to the service of his citizenship.
A man who is not free to be such a Jew is not free at all.
ALEX L. EASTERMAN.

RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT THE
FOURTH PLENARY ASSEMBLY OF
THE WORLD JEWISH CONGRESS

A. POLITICAL

1. THE QUEST FOR INTERNATIONAL
PEACE
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
warmly welcomes the initiative of the heads of the Governments of
the U.S.A. and the U.S.S.R. in inaugurating what the Congress
profoundly hopes will prove to be a series of discussions, with the
participation of the leaders of the other great powers, which will pave
the way to the establishment of a new structure of international
relations;
expresses its hope that these statesmen, conscious of the yearning of
their peoples for a just and enduring peace, will spare no effort to achieve
agreements which will at once safeguard the security of all nations and
relieve mankind of the threat of nuclear war and the crushing burden of
armaments;
urges that in due course the United Nations may be associated with
the maintenance and development of these agreements so that they may
be firmly based on the support of the international community.
As the heirs of the prophetic tradition which through all the changes
of history has remained faithful to the vision of a world united in the
service of justice and peace, and as the successors of the Jewish generations
which endured the unspeakable horrors of wars and international conflict,
Jewish communities everywhere will take their place in the forefront of the
struggle for a peace founded on mutual understanding and the reign of law.
The Plenary Assembly requests the Executive to take the necessary
steps to implement this resolution and in doing so authorises it to consult
with other appropriate organizations pursuing the same ends.

2. NUCLEAR TESTS AND DISARMAMENT
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
holds it to be a solemn obligation to call upon the Great Powers to take
9





steps to halt the armaments race and to concert measures which by a
controlled and progressive scheme of disarmament will deliver mankind
from the burden of fear.
The World Jewish Congress representing Jewish Communities and
organizations in more than 60 countries with the most varied social
economic systems, shares to the full the deep anxiety with which all
mankind is afflicted in the knowledge that nuclear armament is capable
of destroying humanity.
It urges that decisions be taken under conditions which will safeguard
the security of all nations, to bring about the cessation of nuclear tests.
It sees in the cessation of tests an important first step in an inter-
national effort to secure the halting of the manufacture of nuclear arms,
and thereafter their abolition within the framework of a balanced and
massive disarmament, on which a new structure of international relations
can be built.
In the name alike of our common humanity and of our Jewish heritage,
it calls upon all those organised within our ranks to redouble their efforts
in the struggle for a peace based on freedom and security for all nations.


3. UNITED NATIONS

The World Jewish Congress takes the opportunity of its Fourth Plenary
Assembly to reaffirm its wholehearted support of the United Nations and of
the principles and purposes embodied in its Charter.
The Jewish people, committed by an immemorial tradition to the
service of the causes of peace and humanity, and instructed by the lessons
of a long and tragic experience, sees in the United Nations the principal
secular instrument of mankind in the struggle for the establishment of an
international community of sovereign and independent states based on the
rule of law.
Accordingly, the Congress calls on all its affiliated communities and
organizations throughout the world to mobilise every moral resource in
support of the United Nations, and to co-operate actively with all other
like-minded groups in the struggle for the implementation of the principles
and purposes of the United Nations throughout the whole field of inter-
national relations.
The Plenary Assembly records its warm appreciation of the unfailing
understanding and help received by representatives of the Congress at the
United Nations from members of the Secretariat. It desires at the same
time to pay tribute to the devotion and integrity with which the Secretariat,
under the distinguished leadership of the Secretary-General, has served





the interests of the international community. Not the least of its services
has been to give visible expression to the ideal of a united humanity
through an international civil service which, rising above national and
partisan interests, serves the common cause of all mankind.

4. 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING OF
THE INTERNATIONAL LABOUR
ORGANISATION
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
desires to express to the governing bodies of the International Labour
Organisation, to its distinguished Director-General and to its Secretariat,
its warm congratulations on the occasion of the 40th Anniversary of
the founding of the International Labour Organisation.
The International Labour Organisation has not only made a massive
and historic contribution to the development of progressive legislation in
relation to standards of employment, labour relations, the elimination of
discrimination and allied fields, but it has also rendered an outstanding
service to the international community in maintaining in the teeth of
difficulties created by wars and revolutionary changes, the belief in an
international community of interests in the social field.
The Plenary Assembly recalls that the International Labour Organisation
was founded as part of the effort to create a new structure of international
relations following the first World War, and that it is the only inter-
governmental organisation which survived the ordeals of the second World
War and its aftermath. The Plenary Assembly sees in the continued
vitality and effectiveness of the I.L.O. a symbol of the resolve of enlight-
ened men everywhere to secure the victory of the ideal of creative inter-
national co-operation over war and international conflict. The Congress
pledges its utmost support to the I.L.O. in the fulfilment of its high aims.
It regards it as a high privilege to have been given the opportunity to
make, within the limits of its capacity, its contribution to the work of the
I.L.O., and it authorises and instructs the Executive to spare no effort to
continue to develop this co-operative relationship.

5. INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION ON
DISCRIMINATION IN EMPLOYMENT
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
warmly welcomes the adoption, at the annual meeting in 1958 of the
International Labour Organisation, of a Convention and Recommenda-
tions on the elimination of discrimination in employment;





considers that these important additions to international legislation
constitute major instruments in the struggle against discrimination,
and it calls upon all its affiliated communities and organizations to make
every effort to secure the ratification of the Convention and the adoption
of the Recommendations by the governments of their countries, in
accordance with their constitutional processes;
records its gratification that Israel was the first country to ratify the
Convention, and it expresses the hope that this example will be widely
followed, so that the standards established by the International Labour
Organisation in this field may become recognized as the basis for
legislative and administrative action everywhere in the civilised world.


6. WORLD REFUGEE YEAR

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
records its wholehearted support of the objectives of the Refugee
Year proclaimed by the U.N. and regards it as a solemn obligation to
render any service in its power to help in the effort to ensure their
achievement;
calls upon all its affiliated communities and organizations to co-
operate with their governments and national organizations in support of
the international effort.

7. THE ELIMINATION OF STATELESSNESS

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
profoundly regrets the failure of the Geneva Conference of Pleni-
potentiaries on the Elimination of Statelessness to arrive at an agreement.
This failure leaves multitudes of persons, innocent of any offence,
subject to the disabilities of statelessness, many of them in the countries
of their residence, with virtually no hope of achieving the protection of
nationality.
The Plenary Assembly recalls that the Universal Declaration of Human
Rights affirms that everyone has a right to a nationality.
Accordingly, an obligation rests on the international community to
ensure that this right may be exercised by those to whom it is now denied.
The Plenary Assembly urges that the U.N. should, with as little delay
as possible, take the necessary steps to ensure the holding of an inter-
governmental conference which, on the basis of further studies of the
problem, will formulate and achieve agreement on a convention on the
elimination of statelessness.





8. RACIAL DISCRIMINATION

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
regards racial discrimination in whatever form as one of the greatest
obstacles to a satisfactory settlement of basic international conflicts and
peaceful co-operation among peoples;
It condemns the policies aiming at suppressing and foiling the legitimate
claims of subject racial groups for political and social emancipation.
It expresses its conviction that such attempts hold up progress, increase
bitterness in human and international relations and delay full equality of
all without racial discrimination.
The Plenary Assembly reminds Jews everywhere that Jewish ethical
teachings, as well as the long history of their persecution, place upon Jews
a special responsibility to work for the recognition of the dignity and equal
rights of all human beings.

9. ISRAEL

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
salutes in the State of Israel not only the fulfilment of an immemorial
Jewish hope, but one of the greatest creative achievements in the
history of the contemporary world.
In the course of a decade it has received and absorbed a million
immigrants, who have found not only a refuge but a national home.
Through the development of industry, the multiplication of agricultural
settlements and the establishment and extension of great institutions of
religion and learning, Israel has built a society which has given a new
quality to Jewish life everywhere and created a new public image of the
Jews;
The Plenary Assembly expresses the sentiment of all Jewish communi-
ties in pledging its utmost support to Israel in the task of consolidating
its economy and in its resolve to affirm and enjoy the rights and status
of an independent sovereign state in its relations with other states in the
international community, on the seas and in inland waterways, in
accordance with the principles of international law;
records with sorrow the refusal of the Arab States to negotiate peace
with Israel. The sustained and artificially stimulated hostility of
certain Arab groups will only evoke from friends of Israel a strengthened
resolve to sustain Israel in its affirmation of its rights;
sends its warm fraternal greetings to the leaders and people of
Israel : Be strong and of good courage.





10. ISRAEL: CO-OPERATION OF
COMMUNITIES

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
asserts that the fusion of immigrants from different communities is a
basic aim of the creation of the State of Israel;
calls upon the Jewish people and all its organizations to lend their
whole-hearted support to the efforts of the Government of Israel and
the Jewish Agency in carrying out, as soon as possible, comprehensive
schemes in the fields of education, culture, spiritual and material
absorption; to assist in the liquidation of slums and temporary
immigrant camps, in order to help the masses of immigrants and the
poorer elements of the population to acclimatise themselves to conditions
of life in Israel and to take their proper place in the public life of their
country.

11. ARAB REFUGEES
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
notes with satisfaction the understanding for the grave plight of the
Arab refugees shown from the beginning by the Government of Israel,
although the Arab refugees left the country of their own accord or
under pressure of the Arab leadership. The Israel Government has
repeatedly declared itself ready to extend its effective help in the
resettlement of the Arab refugees in the countries to which they have
fled and to assist them in their constructive rehabilitation. During
recent years the Israel Government has readmitted tens of thousands
of Arab refugees within the framework of the scheme for the reunifica-
tion of families.
The Congress invites the attention of international institutions to the
fact that the miserable plight of the Arab refugees is being exploited
deliberately so as to keep alive the hate campaign against the State of
Israel and to maintain the atmosphere of war in the Middle East.


12. SOVIET JEWRY
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress has
concerned itself with the political, economic and human rights of Jews in
all lands. As it faces the problems of Jewry of today, it is inevitably
concerned with the great segment that lives in the Soviet Union. The
absence of representatives of our fellow Jews from the Soviet Union to
express their views and participate in our deliberations has been a cause
for deep regret on the part of this Assembly.





The Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress holds it to be the
inalienable right of Jewish communities everywhere, irrespective of the
political and social regimes under which they live, to establish and
maintain representative organizations and religious, cultural and social
institutions designed to maintain the identity and continuity of Jewish
life, to preserve its traditions, spiritual and cultural values, and to enable
Jewish citizens to make their distinctive contribution to the life of the
countries of their citizenship.
The Congress regards this as an integral part of the right of Jews to
live as free citizens with full participation in the educational, social,
economic and political life of their countries and without discrimination
because of their faith or their identification as part of the Jewish people.
Accordingly, the Congress respectfully urges all governments to secure
to every citizen full opportunity for collective religious or cultural self-
expression, to take the necessary legislative and administrative measures
to facilitate and safeguard the exercise of this fundamental right.
The Plenary Assembly deems it its duty to draw the attention of the
Soviet authorities to the fact that the Jews of the Soviet Union do not have
the necessary means, such as are available to other nationalities and
ethnic groups in the form of publishing houses, periodicals, theatres and
other cultural and educational institutions, to maintain and develop their
spiritual heritage in Hebrew and Yiddish.
The Assembly declares that, unlike other religious communities,
Jewish religious congregations in the Soviet Union have no central
organisation to serve common objectives and to take care of ritual services
and similar activities indispensable to the maintenance of religious life.
The sacred right and opportunity to worship in accordance with their faith,
openly and with dignity, is essential to the religious freedom of Jews as of
all men.
The Congress regrets the fact that Soviet Jewry is denied the opportunity
to participate in Jewish life as a whole and to co-operate with other
Jewish communities. This state of affairs has caused concern throughout
Jewish communities and beyond; and this has been deepened through
the recent closing of a number of synagogues and prayer houses.
It urges the Soviet Union and its leaders to assure to the Jewry of the
U.S.S.R. the exercise of all these rights. We appeal, too, to the Soviet
Government to give the opportunity to those who desire it to join their
families and fellow-Jews in Israel.
At this moment in world history, when men seek to remove mis-
understandings and to promote an international climate in which new
forms of co-operation and co-existence may be developed, we urge the
Soviet Union and all other countries to translate the ideals of human
rights into a living reality for all men.





13. FEDERAL GERMAN REPUBLIC



I


The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
recognizes that the Government of the Federal German Republic,
under the Chancellorship of Dr. Konrad Adenauer and with the full
support of the Bundestag, is fulfilling its obligations under the Luxem-
bourg Agreements of 1952 designed to meet collective Jewish material
claims.
The Federal German Republic has also enacted legislation designed to
indemnify individual Jewish victims for personal losses and injury
inflicted on them through Nazi persecution. The World Jewish Congress
points out, however, that there are deficiencies in the scope of this legisla-
tion and defects in its application, which cause hardship and delay in
payment. The Congress urges the German authorities to remedy these
defects.


II


The Plenary Assembly views with deep concern the reappearance of
former Nazis in key positions in the administrative and judicial services of
the Federal Republic as well as the re-emergence and activity of former
Nazis and of neo-Nazi elements which seek to revive Hitlerite doctrines
and to incite the German people to hatred against the Jews.
The Congress has consistently urged the leaders of post-war Germany
to initiate and to carry out, by legislation and otherwise, a comprehensive
programme of social and political education, especially of German youth,
designed to eliminate Nazi influences from German public life, to cause
the German people to comprehend the enormity of the Nazi crimes, and
to prevent any anti-Semitic revival.
The German authorities themselves concede that the measures taken
so far have proved inadequate, as demonstrated by recent anti-Semitic
publications and incidents.
The Congress expects that the German authorities will take effective
measures, legal and educational, to combat neo-Nazi tendencies and
activities.





14. GERMAN DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
notes with regret that the German Democratic Republic (East
Germany) has shown no sign of readiness to meet Jewish material
claims arising out of Nazi persecution and hopes that this attitude will
be changed in the light of future developments.
The Assembly notes with concern that former Nazis are occupying
important positions in the public life of the German Democratic Republic.

15. COMPENSATION CLAIMS-VICTIMS OF
NAZISM
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
takes note of the report on the steps taken by the World Jewish
Congress to obtain compensation for the Jewish victims of Nazi
persecution in Rumania and for the other Rumanian, Polish and
Hungarian Jews who left their countries after 1st October, 1953, and
who, therefore, were unable to claim compensation and urges the
Executive to continue with the utmost energy its efforts to assure the
satisfaction of the just claims of these victims.

16. AUSTRIA
1. Indemnification for Jewish Nazi Victims in and from Austria
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
deplores the fact that both Austria and Germany have not, so far,
accepted their responsibility to pay Austrian victims of Nazi persecution
adequate compensation for their losses and sufferings.
It calls on the Governments of Austria and the German Federal
Republic to recognize their responsibility to redress the wrongs inflicted
upon these victims and to satisfy without delay their legitimate claims.
2. Anti-Semitism and Neo-Nazism in Austria
The Plenary Assembly protests strongly against the reprieve of Austrian
Nazi criminals who were justly convicted and sentenced to long terms of
imprisonment for the mass murder of Jews. This unwarranted mitigation
diminishes confidence in the sense of justice of the competent Austrian
authorities.
The Plenary Assembly calls for a speedy and thorough investigation by
the Austrian authorities into the grave crimes committed in and outside
Austria by Austrian Nazis against Jews, which to a considerable extent
have gone unpunished, so far.





17. EMIGRATION FROM RUMANIA

In view of the tragic situation of many thousands of Jews, both in
Rumania and Israel, who have been separated for years from their nearest
relatives and dependents, because of their inability to obtain the Rumanian
Government's permission to leave the country, and,
recalling with satisfaction that, in 1958, the Rumanian Government
took measures to relieve the sufferings of the unhappy families concerned,
by granting exit permits to those Jews who sought to rejoin their kinsfolk
in Israel;
the Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress, while
expressing to the Rumanian authorities appreciation of their understanding
of the problem and their desire to meet it,
appeals to the Rumanian Government to resume its humanitarian
action, unfortunately interrupted during recent months, and to relieve
a sad situation by granting facilities to enable broken families to be brought
together again.



18. JEWISH REFUGEES FROM EGYPT

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
expresses to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
its appreciation of his sympathetic interest and assistance to the Jewish
refugees who became victims of the confiscatory measures of the
Egyptian Government in 1956 and 1957. It is confident that, with the
possible co-operation of the Secretary-General of the United Nations,
he will continue his assistance in order to obtain full and appropriate
compensation for those who suffered from these measures,
points out that, on the other hand, the confiscatory measures
inflicted in 1956 and 1957 upon citizens of different nationality were
the subject of agreements between Egypt and their Governments but
Jews have so far been practically unable to benefit by these agreements
through being denied the right to return to Egypt in order effectively
to protect their interests. This constitutes an inadmissible act of racial
persecution in violation of the principles of the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights to which Egypt has acceded,
and calls urgently upon the United Nations and all governments to
impress the Egyptian Government the need for ending this discrimi-
nation.





19. FREEDOM OF NAVIGATION SUEZ CANAL

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
declares that freedom of navigation is a vital interest of the inter-
national community. It urges that free passage of Israeli ships through
the Suez Canal be effectively secured and guaranteed by the United
Nations.

20. FREEDOM OF EMIGRATION

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
calls the attention of Member States of the United Nations to the
fact that freedom of emigration is one of the fundamental rights inter-
nationally recognized in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
which stipulates :
"Everyone has the right to leave any country including his own, and
to return to his country".
It deplores that the exercise of this freedom has been impeded by
certain States which approved the Universal Declaration and solemnly
declared their intention of respecting and implementing its provisions.
The Assembly charges its Executive to continue by all available means
to ensure that the Jews of all lands shall be able to avail themselves of the
right of freedom of emigration, if they desire to do so.

21. JEWISH WAR GRAVES AND CEMETERIES
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
calls for proper measures to be taken for the protection of the mass
graves of Jewish martyrs who perished during the Nazi holocaust in
Europe, and for the restoration and maintenance of the cemeteries of
destroyed Jewish communities.

22. THE 2500TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE
ESTABLISHMENT OF THE IRANIAN EMPIRE BY
CYRUS THE GREAT
The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
takes note of the information conveyed by the Delegation to the
Assembly from Iran, that His Imperial Majesty the Shah and the
Iranian Government are planning to celebrate in 1961 the 2500th
Anniversary of the establishment of the Iranian Empire by Cyrus the
Great.





Recognising the outstanding importance of the place occupied by
Cyrus the Great in the history of the Jewish people, the Plenary Assembly
requests the Executive to associate the Congress with the international
aspects of the celebrations ; and it calls on all Jewish communities and
congregations to commemorate in appropriate ways the memory of a great
and historic figure whose friendship for the Jewish people is enshrined in

ment and people on this historic commemoration.

26. JEWISH DAY-SCHOOLS

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
regards Jewish schools as the fundamental instrument for Jewish

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
conscious of the ever-pressing needs for extending and intensifying

co-operation between world Jewish organizations and students.


28. REGIONAL CULTURAL CONFERENCES

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
takes note of the successful regional conferences already held in
South America and in Europe and believes that it is in the best interest

regional conferences should be held prior to future sessions of the
Plenary Assembly.

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress
conscious of the immediate and continuing need for an intensification
and widening of the influence of the cultural activities of the World
Jewish Congress in initiating, assisting and implementing specific and
general activities in the sphere of culture, maintains that a complete
re-orientation is needed in the attitude towards the financial provisions
made for this sphere of the World Jewish Congress activities,
urges that a first priority should be given in budgetary allocation for
the work of the Cultural Department, and that a minimum of 20 per cent
of the overall budget should be allocated for its work.





C. ORGANISATIONAL


34. ACHIEVEMENT OF JEWISH UNITY

The Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress

the Resolution on Achievement of Jewish Unity adopted by the Third
Plenary Assembly and the successful beginning made in this direction
through the establishment of the Conference of Jewish Organisations
between major Jewish organizations ;
reiterates its previous stand that any new permanent organisation
must be based on the following fundamental requirements :
1. A democratic organisation based on representation of such Jewish
communities and organizations throughout the world as will
accept the principle of the oneness of the Jewish people.
2. Executive organs authorised and equipped to speak and act on
matters of common concern to the Jewish people throughout the
world.
3. Participation in the organisation in no way to affect the autonomy
of participants in regard to the internal and religious affairs of

into the World Jewish Congress communities and organizations not yet

to the unity of World Jewry, the preservation of its cultural heritage, the
protection of its rights and the strengthening of its links with Zion and
Israel,
the Fourth Plenary Assembly of the World Jewish Congress resolves
that an institution bearing his name be established in Israel, to serve as a
