IUNPAY, OCTQIH ?, 1966 Rabbi Says Jews Needed In Germany HEIDELBERG, German <AP) - Rabbi Nathan Pete Iftv'msott, who fled the Nazis 2 years ago, feels that Jews liav an obligation to re-establis themselves on German soil. Now an American citizen, h is chief rabbi for the district o Baden, administering a rela lively small flock of 1,200 Jew in six cities. Many are survivor of Nazi concentration camps. In addition to trying to foster • dialogue between Jews anc non-Jews in West Germany, h fervently defends Jews in Ger many from those Jewish critic abroad who regard living her as treason. He told an international yout conference, "Jews have to be ir Germany, if for no other reaso than to establish the right to be here, to live here as Jews, t follow the dictates of their con icience and their religion, with cut either taking to flight or dis appearing within their environ ment. Hitler attempted to mak Germany clear of Jews. We dc not wish to finish his work." Rabbi Levinson was born I: Berlin 44 years ago. He and his parents emigrated in 1941, jus prior to Hitler's attack on the Soviet Union. Their train route took them . through Poland where the Nazis already hai begun to slaughter Jews, and through the Soviet Union on the Trans-Siberian Railroad to Korea. "We didn't have our Russian visas until the last minute,' Rabbi Levinson said, recalling how his distraught mother Stood animals, waiting at a Berlin railroad sta tion, for her husband and the visas. "We had sold everything and the alternative was either we stay and be sent to our death or get out." The family settled first in Watertown, Conn. Rabbi Levin son then went to Cincinnati where he studied at the university and the Hebrew Union College. He was a rabbi in Selma, Ala., until 1950 when the World Union for Progressive Judaism sent him to Berlin to serve 6,000 Jews in the divided city, where 160.000 Jews had lived in 1933. He took for granted that the Germans he met may have had Nazi pasts. "There was nothing to do about it. But I saw a chance for teaching them some- Bimg." He was guided, too, by the prophet Ezekiel who counseled that the sons should not be punished for fathers' sins. Rabbi Levinson resigned his Berlin post in 1953 after he became the center of a political dismite. Concerned about an anti-Sem- ftic wave behind the Iron Curtain, he urged his congregation members in Berlin's pastern sector to move to the West. Many came, and some members of the Jewish community were unhappy over the East- ANDERSON SUNDAY HERALD SIGN LANGUAGE — The first fingerspelling class lo be held locally met Monday evening at the YVVCA.

It was a routine work day at a X)-acre spread called "Africa, .S.A." located along the river ed of Soledad Canyon about 40 iles northeast of Los Angeles. The daily activity within the mpound, a sort of palm-and- actus version of Noah's Ark, is ore fascinating than many of the threadbare plots dreamed up for television series. For one thing, workmen are only now finishing fencing in the place- not to contain the 400 lions, ti gers, elephants, giraffes, au- nold oudads, cheetahs, leopards who bears 'vultures and other live- former owners—are started on stock,' but to protect them from -"--"-- «-=-'— --«• ••-— the public.
