(Testimony of George Senator)

Mr. Senator.
This I don't know. I would have to leave this question because I don't know.
Mr. Hubert.
Well, you lived with him.
Mr. Senator.
Yes.
Mr. Hubert.
During the time that you lived with him did he ever indicate or did you gather that he was a regular churchgoer?
Mr. Senator.
They go on Friday nights.
Mr. Hubert.
Did you ever see any pattern of his going on Friday nights regularly?
Mr. Senator.
No, I have never seen a pattern of it. Now I don't say that he has or hasn't been. Maybe he has at certain times and probably not on other times. I don't say this is every Friday night that he goes, no. I wouldn't say that. But he does make, you know, the important holidays.
Mr. Hubert.
Do you consider him to be a religious man?
Mr. Senator.
I don't know how, to tell you the truth, I don't know how to break it down for you, how religious he is. Now we never went into an aspect to talk about just how religious he is. All I can say is that he observes as to holidays.
Mr. Hubert.
He never told you anything which would indicate that he was either religious or not religious.
Mr. Senator.
No. Well, I think he fasts on a certain type holiday. He fasts, for this kind of fast it is really something, but he does observe those things.
Mr. Hubert.
You mean not the regular Saturday fast?
Mr. Senator.
No. This is the one time of the year you fast. You don't eat anything for 24 hours. I know he does that.
Mr. Hubert.
I think it is a good time for recess.
Mr. Griffin.
Let me ask one question here. Does he belong to any lay organizations connected with any of the synagogues in town?
Mr. Senator.
I don't know if he belonged to them or not. This I can't know. But I think he went--- it was Temple Emanuel. I don't know which one he went to. I think it was Temple Emanuel.
Mr. Griffin.
To your knowledge, do you have any knowledge of his ever participating in any activities, Jewish activities?
Mr. Senator.
No.
Mr. Griffin.
B'nai B'rith?
Mr. Senator.
I would probably say maybe in donations or something like that.
Mr. Griffin.
Other than giving money he didn't belong to the synagogue's men's clubs?
Mr. Senator.
No, not to my knowledge.
Mr. Hubert.
Supposing we take a recess now until 2 o'clock.
(Whereupon, at 12:35 p.m., the proceeding recessed.)

Testimony of George Senator Resumed

Mr. Hubert.
(The proceeding reconvened at 2 p.m.)
Mr. Hubert.
Mr. Senator, we are now continuing the deposition which we began this morning. I am sure you understand and I want the record to show that this deposition is being continued under the same authority and under the same conditions as it began this morning, and also that you are under the same oath. Now there are a few more general areas that I would like to talk to you about concerning the character of Jack Ruby and the type of man he was. Let me direct your attention to the political beliefs and thinking of Jack Ruby, and ask you what comment you have to make about that.
Mr. Senator.
None whatsoever on his beliefs on political issues.
Mr. Hubert.
Do you mean by that that you don't know?
Mr. Senator.
Break down when you say political issues.
Mr. Hubert.
I mean do you know anything about what his thinking was from what he told you concerning his beliefs about politics in general?
Mr. Senator.
No; he was not of the nature, he never went into anything of that nature.
Mr. Hubert.
Did you ever hear him discuss international politics?
