JUST what the world was wait­ing for: the first Jewish tar­tan. That’s the ma­jor new cam­paign from the Jewish Tele­graph, whose read­ers are im­plored to choose their favourite from three de­signs pre­pared by High­land-wear spe­cial­ists Slanj of Glas­gow. It also has plans for a kilt pin com­bin­ing a Star of David and a this­tle.

Mean­while, Aus­tralia could have its first ex­tra­di­tion of a sus­pected Nazi war crim­i­nal af­ter the coun­try’s High Court re­jected the ap­peal of sus­pect Charles Zen­tai. The 86-year-old for­mer Hun­gar­ian war­rant of­fi­cer is ac­cused of beat­ing 18-year-old Peter Balazs to death in 1944. He has been fight­ing ex­tra­di­tion to Bu­dapest for al­most three years, but the Aus­tralian Jewish News re­ports a High Court rul­ing 6-1 that Perth Mag­is­trates Court should con­sider it.

For­ward in Amer­ica makes clear its views on the ar­rest of sus­pected Is­rael spy Ben-Ami Kadish.

Not to men­tion any over­due li­brary fines.”

A matzah short­age hit Cal­i­for­ni­ans this Pe­sach, re­ports the Jewish Jour­nal of Los An­ge­les. “In all my years, I have never seen a gro­cery store com­pletely out of matzah,” kvetched one Val­ley Vil­lage res­i­dent.
