A Jewish Parents'
Guide on Christmas
Annually, on the occasion of the convening of
the Chanukah and Christmas holidays, The Jewish
Floridian publishes this Guide for Jewish Parents
Regarding Christmas. The Guide is prepared by the
Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami.
Isn't Christmas a national
holiday which all Jews can
observe in good conscience?
Banks and government agen-
cies do close, but above all
things, Christmas is a major
Christian holy day which
celebrates the birth of Jesus, the
Christian Messiah. To suggest to
our Christian friends that
Christmas is anything else would
be presumptuous. Christmas is
not in the same category as
Thanksgiving Day, Fourth of
July, Decoration Day, or any
other American holiday. Since we
do not regard Jesus as our savior,
we can not in good conscience
observe Christmas. To do so is to
violate our religious principles.
How do Christian clergymen and
the responsible Christian laiety
regard the problem?
New Federation Board Elected
Boca Raton. Delray Beach and
Highland Beach on Nov. 1
became the geographical areas
serviced by the newest Jewish
t ederation in the United States.
Previously this area was a
satellite office of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, with its main office in
West Palm Beach.
With the increase in the Jewish
population in South County, it
was felt that this area could be
better served if it had its own
independent Federation. The new
South County Jewish Federation
will continue to jointly fund with
the Palm Beach Federation the
following programs: Russian
Resettlement, a Jewish chaplain
for county hospitals, an
Endowment Fund Program, and
the "Mosaic" program which
appears on Channel 5 at 9 a.m. on
James B. Baer, who was
previously South County general
James B. Baer
chairman, has been elected
president of the new Federation.
He says, "The foresight of the
Palm Beach Federation in un-
derstanding the need to create
this new South County
Federation is most unusual. This
may be the only instance of a
Federation spinning off a portion
of its geographical coverage to
form a new Federation.
I know that with this new
Federation, we can raise more
money for UJA and Israel and
give better service to our local
agencies. I am proud to be its

No matter involving violations
of strong religious convictions
can be regarded as trivial or
minor. The true spirit of
Americanism would never compel I
anyone to act in conflict with his

American forebears came to these

tunity to worship God according
to the dictates of their hearts.

The Christmas tree is dis-
tinctively a Christmas symbol.
Since Christmas is for Christians,
the Christmas tree is appropriate
for Christians only. The Christ-
mas tree has no place in the

The Business of Terrorists
Of little notice was the General Assembly's
generous vote for a resolution to dismiss the Camp
David accord as irrelevant. In a word, the United
Nations has legislated the accord out of existence.
Led by the Third World, the world "peace
organization" moved to legitimize the terrorism of
the Palestinian movement. But this is the same
movement that conducts the war against the United
States not only in Iran, but also elsewhere through-
out the Middle East.
The grand irony is that it is to this "peace
organization" that we have appealed to for action
against Iran's kidnaping of American citizens and
holding them as hostages until we do Ayatollah
Khomeini's bidding in the case of the Shah.
What can we expect from the United Nations?
In our opinion, nothing more than a lot of sanc-
timonious palaver. Only the likes of a Jesse Jackson
can make sense out of this senseless situation. In the
Third World's rise on the scruff of our necks, only he

Americans Understand Israel's Problem
WARWICK, R.I. (JTA) -
Sen. John Warner (R., Va.) feels
that, as a result of the Iranian
crisis, Americans have developed
a new understanding of Israel
and its problems.
Speaking before more than 500
corporate executives and guests
at a State of Israel Bond dinner
here at which sales of over $2.3
million in Bonds and other in-
struments were reported, Warner
said, "The Iranian crisis has
brought Americans together in
patriotism. It is beginning to
unite the Congress behind a
strong national defense of which
Israel is an integral part. We
have developed a new empathy
with Israel because of its courage
and because it faces dangers
constantly. We are learning, as
Israel has learned when faced by
Is Navon Aching to Quit Job?
HAIFA There are recurrent
romors here that President
Yitzhak Navon is seriously
considering resigning from his
post. Some of these rumors are
idle speculation by citizens who
seek to impress their cafe friends
with the extent of their political
acumen. Others come out of the
murky waters of Machiavellian
political scheming which seeks to
set in motion events that would
serve specific political purposes.
Whatever the source of the
latest stories, several fairly clear
scenarios can be sketched.
One has it that Navon feels
frustrated in his high state post
which has all the trappings of
honor and glory, but is almost
completely devoid of any true
authority, responsibility or
opportunity to exercise an in-
fluence on national policies.
THAT IS the way the office of
the presidency was set up 32
years ago, tailored for the
country's first President, Chaim
Weizmann, who was already
ailing and almost blind when he
took office. Most of his suc-
cessors were already of advanced
age so that the absence of any
real challenge in the office was to
them a virtue rather than a fault.
Navon, on the other hand, is
only 58. He finds himself both
fettered and gagged, since the
President is supposed to be both
above and outside of partisan
politics, where all the action is.
Before he was named President,
he was a leading member of the
Labor Party, and his election
nevertheless, during the Begin
administration, was a remarkable
tribute to his popularity.
His full five-year term of office
would carry him a year beyond
the next scheduled Knesset
elections, and the next ad-
ministration, whether Likud or
Labor, would find Navon still in
his neutral political no-man's
land, and out of the main stream
of those who make and influence
IF HE WERE to decide to quit
and re-enter politics, he cannot
wait much longer. It is generally
agreed that a retiring President,
like a retiring general, cannot
leap straight into politics on the
basis of the prestige of his
previous post. A cooling off
period is necessary, possibly as
much as a year. Such a deadline
is rapidly approaching if Navon
seeks to leave the ceremonial
reviewing stand and descend into
There can be little doubt that
he still retains his old Labor
Party loyalties. It must hurt him
to see the party torn by the bitter
personal feuds for the leadership
between Peres, Rabin, Allon and
others this at a time when
many believe that a strong,
united Labor can effectively
unseat the Begin coalition at the
next election. The present in-
fighting on the left menaces the
The popular Yitzhak Navon
could become the rallying point
for a rejuvenated Labor Party
He is a Sephardi, and that is a
powerful asset. He has a warm
personality. He speaks English
French, Spanish, Arabic and
other languages with as much
fluency as his native Hebrew. It
has become clear that the masses
respond to him more en-
thusiastically than to any other
personality on the Israel scene
THERE IS a variation to this
scenario. Begin may not succeed
in Maintaining the stability of his
coalition. The divided Labor
Party may not be able to present
a united front. A national crisis
would threaten. At this point the
cry would go up for establish-
ment of a national wall-to-wall
unity government, embracing the
major parties of both left and
right, and with Yitzhak navon as
the Prime Minister.
Should the President agree, his
candidacy would be well-nigh
irresistible. He could become the
strong man many say Israel
needs. The masses would look to
him as a savior. And because he
comes with Labor credentials no
one could apply to him those
epithets of "dictator" or
"fascist" which would inevitably
have been attached to a leader
who came from the ranks of the
But what does Navon himself
say? According to one report, he
intends to complete the five years
to which he was elected.
According to another report, he is
already under pressure from
some of his friends, and in
suitable circumstances would be
prepared to resign from the

Jewish culture and history.
Mrs. Eleanor Marvin, president of the ICJW,
which has more than one million members in 31
countries, also pledged organizational support for
Jewish prisoners of conscience, such as Ida
Nudel. and other long-term refuaenika.
The United States affiliate of ICJW is the
National Council of Jewish Women, which has
adopted Ida Nudel aa a prisoner of conscience and
which recently held a protest vigil outside the
Soviet Embassy in Washington, D.C.___________

Holiday on Wheels
On Monday, Dec. 17, and Tuesday, Dec. 18, the
Boca / Delray Section of the National Council of Jewish Women
will in accordance with its on-going program, Holiday on
Wheels take the Chanukah celebration to the Fountains
Nursing Home and the Boca Raton Convalescent Center, as well
as to the Florida Four Seasons Manor and the Abbey-Delray
They will be accompanied by Rabbi Alan Sherman,
chaplain of the South County Jewish Federation.
Chanukah is celebrated on the 25th day of the Hebrew
month of Kislev. This holiday is called the Festival of Lights,
since it emphasizes the lighting of the Menorah. The Menorah
being used was donated to the nursing homes by the Boca
Delray Section of the NCJW to be used each year.
A NCJW spokeswoman said, "We hope that in bringing
this celebration to the nursing homes, to light up the lives of the
residents just a little bit."

Baker said in a Senate speech,
Whatever the outcome of the
ragic imprisonment of our dip-
omats in Iran, the U.S. must re-
issess its prospects and the pros-
>ects of its allies and friends in

Noting that "For many years
the Sinai has been the site of
some of the most impressive air
bases in the world," Baker
pointed out that "they are
capable of handling" "America's
giant B-52 bombers.
"Today, as a result of the
impressive success of the peace
process between Egypt and
Israel," he said, those bases are
to be handed over to Egypt.
BAKER BELIEVES that
"President (Anwar) Sadat might
well agree that an American
presence in this troubled area
would be additional proof of the
increasing firmness of the Egyp-
the area would be"well served by
such a manifestation of the
American will to do what
necessary to sustain both
alliances and its lifeline."
The two air bases in Sinai will
be handed over to Egypt in 1981
in the final stage of Israel's with-
drawal from the peninsula. By
that time, two replacement air
bases in the Negev are expected
to have been completed.
MEANWHILE, in a speech on
the floor of the House, Rep. Dan
Glickman (D., Kan.) pointed out
that "In considering our options
in Iran, it is clear that the U.S.
would be severely restricted
without the presence of our ally,
Israel." He added:

granted since arriving in the
TIMERMAN is slated to
receive the UJA 1979 David Ben-
Gurion Award during the UJA
National Conference at a public
assembly in Avery Fisher Hall
here on Friday, Dec. 7.
The exclusive interview,
conducted by Rabbi Mark S.

syndicated radio program
L'Chayim over WMCA in New
York on Sunday. L'Chayim is
also broadcast in Palm Beach,

Timerman presented with the

include a tribute to recently-re-
leased Soviet Jewish Prisoner of
Conscience Boris Penson, a
dramatic reading by multiple-

r and a concert by the Soviet
Jewish Emigre Orchestra, under
the direction of Lazar Guzman.
TIMERMAN WILL receive
the Ben-Gurion Award for his
"struggle against oppression and
for the right to live a Jewish life."
The 1978 award went to Soviet
Jewish Prisoners of Conscience.
Timerman's reaction: "We owe
so much to the Jews of Russia. In
Argentina, I had a very very bad
feeling because I thought that,
after all, I was under house
arrest; not in so bad conditions
as the Jews who were in Russia.
"The decision of the Jews of
Russia to fight for being Jews is
something that I think we don't
realize the importance of. That
means really that Jews can
survive. This is something they
show to us."
TIMERMAN, who now lives
in Israel, said that "Freedom as a
human being and freedom as a
Jew they are very different. I
am used to the idea of being free.
I suppose it is not difficult to live
like a free human being. But what
is really difficult is to live as a
free Jew. This is something I
never imagined, it was an ex-
perience I never had. I have been
a free man, but I never was a free
Jew. In Israel, you are a free Jew,

and I am discovering every day
what it means. Jewish life is so
rich now, so many questions in
Jwish life we still don't have an
answer for. I still don't have the
broad idea of all the richness of
being a free Jew .
"The Jews must work
together, because anti-Semitism
will exist for many, many years. I
don't know why. We cannot
destroy anti-Semitism. The only
thing we can do is to see that
anti-Semitism doesn't destroy us.
That is why it is so important to
be one Jewish people. .
"I think the best thing for a
Jew is to live in Israel. But if you
don't live in Israel, you are still a
Jew and you are very important
for me. You can be a Jew in any
country of the world, but I have
the ambition that Israel should
be the best country in the world."
"Why was I arrested? I was
editor of the only outspoken daily
about human rights in Argen-
tina. It was the only daily that
pointed out anti-Semitic in-
cidents in Argentine life. I was
hated because I was always
outspoken politically and because
I was always a very good Jew. .
"I WAS in prison for two and
one half years. The first three
months kidnapped, disappeared,
in clandestine jails. Then nine
months in a legal jail and one and
one half years in home arrest,
with eight policemen living with
me in the apartment for twenty-
four hours a day. I was released
because of international pressure,
but especially the Jewish in-
stitutional pressure. .
"One day, when I was feeling
in a very bad situation because of
much torture, I thought I needed
something to help me survive.
Thoughts of my wife and children
were not enough. I needed
something to be alive. So I
spontaneously banged on the

Your tzimmis just wouldn't be the same without
Sun-Maid* Raisins. And your compote wouldn't be
complete without Blue Ribbon or Old Orchard Figs. For
over half a century our wholesome kosher fruits have
been a Jewish cooking tradition.
We dry them the traditional way, too. Naturally,
in the sun. So the natural sweetness you enjoyed as a child
still tastes the same today. And isn't that what
tradition is all about?

Jews are Wisest With Money
By DAN PULCRANO
With LARRY GLASS
The idea that Jews are
good with money is not
always entirely negative.
Lewanda, an Oakes student
whose mother lived with
Jews for five years, told us,
"To me, they make better
use of their money than any
other ethnic group. Jews
exploit their money bet-
"My mother says that by
living with them she learned how
to really manage her money very
well, and she does a very good job
of it, which I fall back on Jews
Certainly, many Blacks view
Jews as role models, whose
position as a successful, well-
organized and cohesive minority
they hope to emulate.
THE SECOND cause of anti-
Jewish stereotypes among
Blacks has been the economic
relationships that developed in
Eastern cities. The Jews that the
Blacks encountered were mostly
businessmen; the businessmen
they knew were mostly Jews.
Religion, while sometimes
divisive, provides a basis for
common understanding. The
poor Blacks who migrated north
during the first part of the 20th
century were greatly influenced
by Southern Christian fun-
damentalism. Because of their
oppressed condition, they tended
to identify with the ancient
slavery of the Jews in the Old
Paula addressed this saying,
"I think that's why Blacks
picked up Christianity so fast. .
We identified with the stories of
the Jews in the Bible, because
Moses led the Jews out of Egypt
into the Promised Land. So we
were waiting for our Moses to
lead us to our Promised Land."
WE ALSO discussed our
common sensitivity to per-
secution, and our common roles
as victims of white Christian
European society. Mohammed
observed that throughout
American history, "Immigrants
participated in exploitation of
lower class people because it was
the only way for them to get over
. They don't realize that when
you help push a Black, another
Third World person, out of a
position, they're doing nothing
but killing themselves also
because after they (the white)
finish getting on the Third
World, they're going to get you
Don responded: "I think that
is true. We were practically killed
by the same European Christian
culture that oppressed you and
enslaved you. Because of this, I
know what racism and op-
"I think, that's why I feel very
strongly the way you do,
Mohammed. It sickens me it
really p.-oh.'s me to see Jews in
positions of power and once they
get those positions of power, they
forget what oppression is and
they turn on the next person. I
think what you're saying is
partly true. I don't think it's true
of all Jews; I don't think it's even
true of most Jews. But there are
Jews in positions of power that
do these things you're talking
about. Unfortunately they're
visible and it reflects poorly on all
of us," Don concluded.
"I'M WHITE,". Allison added,
"But I don't consider myself as
white as everyone else partly
it's because of a differeno '
religion, and partly becaui
know that all Jews aren't whj
Don commented that he di,
mind being called "white "
that he hated being classify
'Anglo,' because Anglo dm
'English,' and my ancestors i
not running around the
yelling 'Manifest Destiny.'
We moved the discussio
examining what messages
students could bring back
their communities to help en '
greater understanding betw *
the two groups. The Bl '"
bristled at the suggestion t|
harmful stereotypes existed L
their communities, and that tk '
prejudices stood in the way >"
better relations. Mohami Vs
viewed the fact that Jews
"stingy and manipulative"
just that a fact.

New Weapon Developed Against Cooky's Anemia
abnormal ones," Dr. Ra
JERUSALEM A new
technique that could be useful in
the fight against Cooley's anemia
(Thalassemia), a genetic disease
which is regarded as incurable,
has been developed at the
Hadassah University Hospital
here. For years the Hematology,
Department in the Mount Scopus
Hospital of the Hadassah-He-
brew University Medical Center
has specialized in the treatment
and research of the disease which
has been carried on under the
direction of Dr. Eliezer Rachmile-
witz, the chief.
A new method of culturins the
red blood cells of Cooley's anemia
patients has been developed. This
department is one of the few
places in the world where
scientists have succeeded in
growing the red blood cells of the
Thalassemic patients in tissue
clutures. These cells are now
being examined genetically by
American scientists at Rutgers
and at Columbia University
where Dr. Arthur Blank heads a
leading laboratory engaged in the
Using the most sophisticated
methods of genetic engineering
available to science today, the
scientists hope that they will
eventually be able to repair the
defects in the genes of the red
blood cells of the Cooley's anemia
patients by substituting hormal
genes for the abnormal genes.
RECENTLY, a major
breakthrough occurred in the
United States in mapping and
coding the genes of the red blood
cells of Cooley's anemia patients.
Dr. Eitan Fibach, who has
become a specialist in tissue
culturing red blood cells at
Hadassah is one of the scientists
involved in this advanced
After studying tissue culture
at the Weizmann Institute of
Science, he was sent by,
Hadassah to do post-doctorate
research at the Cancer Research
Center and Department of
Human Genetics and
Development at Columbia. He
worked there with a senior
scientist, Dr. Francesco Ramiraz,'
a young Italian scientist, who is'
now at Rutgers. Together with
Dr. Arthur Bank, this inter-
national team did research on the
genetics of the red blood cells of
the Cooley's anemia patients who
are treated at the Mount Scopus
Hospital in Jerusalem. A grateful
patient of Dr. Rachmilewitz has
, underwritten Dr. Fibach's
Dr. Fibach returned to,
Jerusalem and set out to master a
technique for culturing the
Thalassemic red blood cells.
After months of research, he has
succeeded in doing so. "As far as
I know, ours is the only group
that has succeeded in culturing
the red blood cells of Thalassemia
patients," Dr. Fibach says. When
Dr. Fibach had succeeded in
culturing the Thalassemic cells.
Dr. Rachmilewitz notified Dr.
Blank who sent Dr. Ramiraz to
Jerusalem to take samples for
further genetic engineering
Dr. Ramiraz explains: "Two
years ago I came from Columbia
University to work with Dr.
Rachmilewitz, and I took
material back with me to the
United States. The results of this
research have recently been
published in an international
journal Blood. The team also
includes Deborah Starkman,
Helene Karem and Gabriel .
Cividalli as well as Dr. Bank, Dr. '
Fibach and myself.
"DR. FIBACH'S unique
method of culturing the Thalas-
semic red blood cells gives us an
excellent opportunity to study
the in to to processing of RNA
during the differentiation of the
cells. Studying the RNA without
Dr. Fibach's culturing method
was virtually impossible, for we
need a cell system in which the
cells are all at the same stage of
development, and one that can
produce enough cells to enable us
to carry out the molecular
biological studies in detail.
"Once we know exactly what
the RNA defect is, I predict that
in less than five years techniques
will be available to repair these
defects of the genes, so that we
can substitute normal genes for
