According to Mr. Huck, Christians have been partici- .pants in Passover celebra- tions, not as a "restaging of the Last Supper of Jesus," but because they "acknow- ledge common Biblical roots with Jews" and to find "a deep and honest and strong expression of our own faith." He adds: "We come to the seder just as it is celebrated by Jews... We who are Christians need to be at home with it, getting to know its sounds and smells and tastes, its gestures and dances and silences. Even- tually, we will certainlyfind that we belong" at the Passover tabie. Rabbi Klenicki said that more and more Christians are conducting seders them- selves or in interfaith observances because they, want to understand their roots better by experiencing what Jesus, as a Jew, experienced at Passover time. The Haggadah, Febbi Klenicki said, is traditional with certain abridgements. It provides a clear, concise outline of the "four ques- tions," the preparation of the seder table with special foods and wine, the dtual prayers and songs, and the recitation of the story of the deliverance of the Jews from Egyptian bondage. In addition to the concepts that have defined the Jewish religion--liberation from slavery, the covenant at Sinai and the return tothe Promised Land--the new Haggadah contains a section dealing with commemoration of the victims of the Holocaust. "The Passover Celebration" is available at $1.90 from ADL's National Program Division, 823 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY 10017, or any of the agency's regional offices. Quantity discounts are offered with purchases of more than 10. In addition, 30-minute cassette recordings of music for the secler and a guide to the pronunciation of Hebrew words used in the course of the ritual are available from the Liturgy Training Program, 155 E.

The Political Sce00 Jews Vote Ke Carter Sweeps by Barbara Coenson-Roth HERITAGE Staff It was goodbye south for the men who want to be president as they took off for Illinois after a clean sweep by President Jimmy Carter and former Gov. Ronald Reagen in the Florida, Georgia and Alabama primaries on Tuesday. Despite a 2-1 margin for Sen. Edward Kennedy in Florida's Jewish bloc vote (52 percent), Pres. Carter took the state by 4 to 1 in the Demo- cratic race. Sen. Kennedy, who was said to have "capitalized" on the controversial Middle Fast U.N. vote of the Carter administra- t.ion, is now counting on "'time and the Jewish vote," accord- ing to an ABC News report. Kennedy people said they hope to take the state of New York where the Jewish population could account for up to 40 percent of the voter turn-out in the state's primary on March 25. Former ambassador George Bush, who spent much time, effort and money campaigning in Florida and, who like most candidates, also Moslem U.S. Bases by Joseph Polakoff WASHINGTON (JTA)--A Defense Department official has said that "Moslem states" are damaging themselves by impeding the U.S. use of military facilities in .Israel. Robert Komer, Undersecre- tary of Defense for Policy, expressed that view to 200 editors and broadcasters from all over the country attending a series of briefings here at the invitation of the State Depart- ment. Speaking at length on Soviet military power and its use of that power to penetrate the Middle East and threaten the oilfields on which the West relies, Komer was asked by Leon Brown, editor of the Jewish "13mes of Philadelphia, why the Carter Administration does not take advantage of military bases in Israel to help overcome the situation he described. Komer replied, "We got a little problem." He said "Most of the oil-rich used the UN against the his defeat b the southern cluttered by Gerald Ford's possible date.

Mourning for Statesman Combined with Spe Jacob -I-zur, secretary general of the Achdut Haavoda-spon- sored Kibbutz Meuchad move- me nt. Observers are also wonder- ing whether the party faction led by Shimon Peres with AIIon as both his rival and designated second in com- mand, will continue to domi- nate Labor or will be replaced by a new grouping. For the time being, it appears that Peres will remain unchal- lenged for the party leadership. According to some circles, he will select either former Minister of Commerce and Industry Haim Barley or former Foreign Minister Abba Eban as his second to replace Allon. A question remains as to the role of former Premier Yitzhak Rabin who has chal- lenged Peres for the party leadership in the past. He has been quoted as .saying, "All to me.'.'.....' TEL AVIV (JTA) -- The Labor Party declared a week of mourning for Yigal Allon and suspended all political activity for that period. But this has not restrained speculation over how the death of one of its top leaders will affect the party's future. Allon died of a heart attack on February 29 at the age of 61 and was buried on Sunday. Among the questions being raised are who will replace him as No. 2 man in the party's leadership and what will bethe fate of the Achdut Haavoda faction that he headed. According to some sources, political activity will be resumed by Israel Galili, one of Labor's elder statesmen who was a close confidant of the late Premier Golda Meir but has remained in the background in recent years. But he may be. challenged by the younger generation, .. represented by the energetic.
