Carter Wants
To Pow-Wow
With the PLO
WASHINGTON (JTA) The State Department
indicated here that President Carter "has said he would
be willing to talk with the PLO" if it recognized Israel's
right to exist. The Department's chief spokesman,
Hodding Carter, made that assertion in response to
reporters' questions as to whether the U.S. would deal
directly with the Palestine Liberation Organization.
REITERATING THAT the U.S. stands firmly
behind United Nations Security Council Resolutions 242
and 338, Carter stressed that the US. is trying to bring
the Palestinians into the current peace negotiating
process. He said all parties to this process can bring in
their own participants, but if one participant does not
wish to deal directly with another, it would not have to.
"We continue to hope," the State Department
spokesman said, "that the PLO will change its firmly-held
position and concede and grant Israel's right to exist in
which case the President has said he would be willing to
talk with the PLO. There is no assumption that anybody
else will be willing."
HE ADDED, "Our efforts are aimed specifically at
the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza to indicate
we want them to be participants as called for in the peace
According to a report in The New York Times,
President Carter, in a wide-ranging interview, likened the
Palestinian issue to the "civil rights movement here in the
United States," depicting it as a highly emotional issue
and a matter of rights. The State Department Spokesman
had no comment on The Times' story.
MEANWHILE, Assistant Secretary of State for
Near East and South Asian Affairs, Harold Saunders,
appeared before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, to
answer questions about the pending sale of 300 M-60
tanks to Jordan.
The Administration has postponed the sale for six
weeks to allow the Congress more time to examine the
deal which has aroused criticism in Israel. By law,
Congress must have 30 days to consider any major
overseas weapons sale. If, after that period, the sale is not
vetoed by either House, it goes through automatically.

Stand 'Explained'

Phof o by Audrey HaubenstocK
In an effort to clarify President
Carter's remarks in The New
York Times, Presidential Press
Secretary Jody Powell told
reporters at the White House:
"The President's comment
with respect to the American civil
rights movement and the
Palestinian issue related to a
specific point in the Camp David
accords, namely Section A, West
Bank and Gaza, Paragraphs 3
and 4. The President made the
point that he felt the right of
return was important to
Palestinians as a matter of
principle, even though many
would not choose to exercise it, as
certain rights are important to
certain Black citizens as a matter
of principle.
"REFERENCES TO the civil
rights movement in the context
of the Palestinian issue un-
derscores the personal views of
the President and the position of
the American government, in
total opposition to terrorism and
"The American civil rights
movement was and continues to
be successful largely because it is
and continues to be non-violent.
The efforts of this and previous
American Presidents have been
directed toward the resolution of
long-standing differences by
peaceful means rather than
.through death and destruction."

Reading Argentine press
Kans such as La Prensa and La
cion openly have attacked the
kasure. An Argentine Bishops'
inference statement supporting
pgious freedom and the right
parents to choose their
lldren's education has been
erpreted as an indirect slap at
decree. The leading Catholic
kgazine Criteria, formerly
lied by Monsignor Jorge
kjia. now Secretary of the
Itican Commission for

aaism, has come out in
)R. AMADEO and the decree
getting strong support from
it wing Catholic groups,
ny of them imspired by the
11 -known Opus Dei, according
|the Argentine Jewish paper,
tva Presencia, which had
poted lengthy articles to this
BCt. Members of many of
these same groups also are part
of the Ombu Circle, a political
discussion group with con-
siderable prestige in Argentina.
Ombu includes such per-
sonalities as the former President
of the Argentine Republic, Gen.
Roberto M. Levingston.
A recent Ombu Circle meeting
at which the decree was discussed
was rife with anti-Semitic and
anti-Israel sentiment. Attempts
by the only Jew present. Rabbi
Marshall Meyer, to counter this
brought vehement ridicule and
hostility from Levingston.
"Moral and Civic Education"
is an obligatory course for first-
year high school students. The
religious education is introduced,
essentially, in sections on
Christian Ideas about Man and
Life; the Family; and Man and
His Cultural Relations. Two
other sections deal with the
economic achievements and
political fulfillment of man.
Aires morning paper. La Nation,
blasted introduction of the
subject as "absolutely inap-
propriate to the sought-after
goal" of formation of a moral and
civic character. It stressed that
the course contents were based
"on just one creed" and went on:
"Although Catholicism is the
traditional and majority religion
of the country it is not the
religion of all the inhabitants.
This situation is not in keeping
with the pluralistic conception of
(Argentine) national life.
"Admittedly, the Argentine
civic-moral order is rooted in
Western Christian civilization.
That does not mean the state has
the right to impose mandatory
topics such as Man's
Relationship with God even
assuming a diversity of
viewpoints can be presented .
the study of the Doctrine of the
Church, although not specified, is
understood as referring only to
the Catholic Church. This means
the encroachment of the
authorities on freedom of con-
science is even more apparent. .
La Prensa urged that the
proper task of a course on Moral
and Civic Education, named as
such, and declared: "The
Argentine people's natural
identification with Western and
Christian principles does not
permit one to forget basic con-
stitutional principles about
freedom of religion."

Pt 5 First Day of School
ARGENTINA'S constitution,
adopted in 1853, declares that
Roman Catholicism is the official
religion of the country. The same
constitution also established
religious freedom. And the 1870
Education Law, Number 1420,
clearly called for lay education.
Despite the 1870 measure,
however, there has been a
mercurial pattern, with religious
education sometimes mandatory
for elementary or high school, or
both, and times when it was not
mandatory at all. Parents could
request exemption for their
children from religious classes, to
attend substitute classes in
morality; but this of course set
them apart, and was felt by both
parents and children to be
discriminatory. With the new
decree, this is no longer per-
mitted. Attendance is obligatory
for the Catholic education
During Juan Peron's first term
in office, 1945-51, religious
education was mandatory. After
he and his wife, Evita, got into a
squabble with the Church during
his second term, it was dropped.
This was the situation until the
new moral and Civic Education
decree of this part February.

Omission Would be Better
Even if it were true at the moment, it would be
ill-advised for an American Jewish leader to an-
nounce to the world that American Jewish influence
in Washington is strong and growing because U.S.
Jews are "educated, affluent, intense, cohesive and
This was the opinion of Howard Squadron,
president of the American Jewish Congress, at the
15th annual American-Israel Dialogue of the Con-
gress held in Jerusalem.
But the trend in Washington, in our view, is
precisely the opposite. There is almost no way in the
world that alleged American Jewish influence can
alter the course of President Carter's determination
to assure the flow of Oil by butchering Israel.
What is even worse is that Mr. Squadron's
reasoning feeds the mill of anti-Semites who blame
the current energy crunch on American Jews and all
that education, affluence, cohesiveness and ar-
ticulation (the anti-Semitic charge is "Jewish control
of the media") that we are supposed to have.
Either way, we can't win, as Mr. Carter's
policies show. And as the anti-Semitic propaganda
against American Jewry these days shows.
Then what was the point of the statement?
The American Jewish Congress performs
marvelous service in the cause of human rights
generally, not just Jewish rights. In this case,
however, we simply wish that Mr. Squadron had said
Carter's War on Israel
Even the most cursory glance at President
Carter's campaign statements back in 1975 would
show that the President has come a long way in his
full-circle trip on the Middle East. What he said then
is not what he is saying now a characteristic
charge against him not only on the Middle East
This 360-degree turn is perhaps the most
brutally meddlesome performance in the presidency
since the 1956 Suez-Sinai war when then-Secretary of
State John Foster Dulles, acting in the name of
President Eisenhower, forced the British, French and
Israelis back out of the Suez Canal area and reversed
the historic achievement of a military victory that
would have prevented many of the problems now
facing the industrialized world. Including oil.
What President Carter is doing is reversing the
1967 Six-Day War achievement. He has learned
nothing from the grim Dulles-Eisenhower action, as
indeed Secretary Dulles himself did in the end, when
it was too late.
This would be sad enough, but it takes on an
aura of Greek tragedy because of the "doubling" of
its negative implications and because the President
fully believes he is acting in the best interests not
only of the Arabs, but of Israel, as well.
There is a kind of chutzpah in this sort of
heinous righteousness, which may be good as
preachment in the President's Sunday School ser-
mons, but which is doing terrible service to the world
at large a fact neither he nor his partners in
Europe, presumably the West Germans and the
French, can see at the moment, so blinded are they
all by the sand of oil.
The President's brutal attempt to reverse
history to achieve "rights" for the Palestinians at
the cost of violating Israel's rights is only the first
phase of his campaign against Jerusalem. Watch, in
our opinion, for the Texan, the President's special
envoy, the President's "court Jew," Robert Strauss,
to press for a sundering of Jerusalem far more
quickly than anyone expects at this time.
President Carter needs victories to veil the
tissue of his failures in other areas. Jerusalem, an
emotionally explosive issue throughout the world,
may well be what he will grasp for, with the hands of
his Jewish aide, Strauss.

A Part Doesn't Make the Whoi
IN GENEVA the other week.
Britain's Chief Rabbi Irornanue
Jakobovits made a brilliant
point- His assumption was that
We are becoming victims of a
Holocaust mentality.
In essence, said Rabbi Jako-
bovits. we have begun to brood
upon our survival as md'v^1
Jews rather than upon the sur-
vival of Judaism
The logical inference here is
that we have become obsessed
with the demise of six million
Jews, but we appear to be less
distraught by the decimation and
virtual disappearance of the great
and irreplacable German Jewish
community, or of the other
vibrant Jewish communities oi
Eastern Europe that fell victim
to the Hitlerian horde.
AND SO, according to Rabbi
JakoboviU. our despair is; mis-
placed- The Holocaust should not
be the focal point of an eternal
Jewish shiva: rather, it must
confirm our allegiance to the
testament of a Jewish continuum
that no Holocaust can destroy.
The shiva must terminate in a
purgation of thoughts of death
fife renew our commitn**l

Way back in 1971, Marco
DeFunis. a member of a
Sephardic Jewish family and a
Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the
University of Washington, was
turned down when he applied for
admission to that Seattle in-
stitution's law school. He was
admitted to four other law
schools, but his alma mater was
his top choice; and his fight to
get in eventually reached the
Supreme Court.
Many folks sensed anti-Jewish
leanings in the DeFunis case;
others said, oh, no, the
University of Washington was
just trying to make it easier for
blacks to become lawyers. In any
event. Justice William 0.
Douglas pushed the legal button
that gave a victory of sorts to
young DeFunis.
THIS ALL LEFT a cloud of
ambiguity hanging over the issue
of justice in college admissions.
And matters drifted along until a
year ago when the Supreme
Court handed down a sharply
divided ruling in the famous
Allan Bakke case. That time
around, the Court upheld con-
sideration of race in school entry
programs while at the same time
ordering Bakke. who is white,
admitted to the University of
California Medical School at
Davis where he is currently
trudging along towards his
Just as the DeFunis case left
shadows of uncertainty, so did
Bakke. The Jewish community
by and large hailed the Bakke
decision as a blow at college
quotas while continuing to
subscribe to the important
principle of affirmative action.
The Black community was
understandably upset by the
Bakke decision. Dr. Alvin
Poussaint, Harvard professor of
psychiatry and a prominent
member of the Black community,
complained: "Legally, I think it
(the Bakke ruling I is going to
open a Pandora's box; it invites a
testing of affirmative action
programs all over the place."
BUT NOW with the decisive 5-
to-2 ruling by the Supreme Court
in the case of Brian Webber vs.
the Kaiser Aluminum and
Chemical Company, we have
moved away from the important
but somewhat circumscribed area
of discrimination in education to
the much broader issue of
discrimination in employment.
The DeFunis and Bakke cases
impinged upon the destinies of
several hundred thousand; the
Webber case packs a message to
millions of workers and many,
many employers.
At issue in the Webber case
was Webber's complaint that the
Kaiser Company, in selecting
candidates to train employes for
upgrading, ignored Webber's
seniority by using a racial quota.
That the case originated in
Louisiana, where equality was
long consigned to the dungeon,
complicated the issue.

SID BLEENDES at this point

delivers the bags of groceries to

says. And "this" includes
shopping two days a week for the
best buys to sell and picking up

Items stocked included bread

special items such as honey,
desserts and instant coffee.
And all these items are
available at 10 cents to 20 cents
less than regular grocery store

During World War II he was in
the financial office of Camp
Caramel about 60 miles south of
Tallahassee. "That is one of the
few times I ever heard of someone
being assigned to an Army job
that they were trained in civilian
life to do. I figured I would be a

this retired accountant.
Since the war he has lived in
Tampa, retiring after 17 years as
an accountant with the Industrial
Supply Corporation. He moved
into the Jewish Towers when it
first opened.
For now he is content knowing
that he is helping to provide a
much needed service to the
nearby residents of the Center
where there is no major shopping
available. He hopes that more
people will stop by on Wed-

and shop and see for themselves
what the food co-ops has to offer.

JOSEPH BURG, chief of the

noting that U.S. suggestions go

himself is demanding, thus
hardening the Egyptian position
and making the negotiations

Former Nazi
Joseph Kotaella
Dies in Prison
Joseph Kotaella. one of three
Nazi war criminals still im-
prisoned in Holland, died at
Breda prison at the age of 71.
A German by birth, he was. as
deputy commandant of the
Amersfooit concentration camp
during World War II. responsible
for mass murder and countless
other atrocities.
KOTAELLA WAS sentenced
to death after the war for the
murders of 77 camp inmates. In
1951. his sentence was commuted
to life imprisonment on grounds
that he was not fully competent
mentally. In 1971. the Dutch
government announced its in-
tention to free him and three
other war criminals for
humanitarian reasons in con-
sideration of their poor health.
Only one. Willy Lages. was
released and died soon af-
terwards. Nationwide protests
forced the government to
abandon its plan. Kotaella had
been partially paralyzed for
several years.
The surviving war criminals
still at Breda are Ferdinand aus

An American delegation of
Hasidic Jews has just returned
from the Soviet Union, having
successfully completed
discussions with Soviet
authorities for the safeguarding
of the shrine of Rabbi Nachman
of Breslov, it was reported by
Rabbi Pinchas Teitz of the
Jewish Educational Center here.
The shrine, located in the
Ukrainian city of Uman, houses
the grave of Rabbi Nachman,
founder of the Breslover Hasidic
movement, who selected the site
as his burial grounds eight years
prior to his death in 1811.
IT HAS SERVED for over 150
years as the focal point of the
world-wide Breslov movement,
which alone among Hasidic
groups has had no hereditary
titular leader since Rabbi Nach-
man's passing.
Information reaching the
United States in recent months
had indicated that the burial site
was slated by Soviet authorities
for inclusion in a proposed
housing complex. As a result, a
delegation from the New York
area went to the Soviet Union to
discuss the situation with the
appropriate authorities, Teitz
THE SOVIET officials in
Kiev, the regional capital,
reassured the delegation that
although major construction was
being undertaken in Uman, it
would be restricted to the city's
center, and would in no way
impinge upon the shrine, which is
a mile and a half from the center.

LONDON An evaluation
from the Jewish point of view of
two recent political developments
has been made by the Institute of
Jewish Affairs in London-
One report deals with the
European elections. Although
there are expectations that the
directly elected Parliament will
become a more powerful body,
the IJ A explains that there are a
number of considerations which
would appear to limit the poten-
tial for change- Whether or not
the new Parliament of the EEC
increases in importance, it will
probably adopt similar attitudes
towards matters of Jewish in-
terest as its predecessor.
ANALYZING the political
groupings, the report shows that
a coalition of center right groups
would produce a majority of 210
in the 410-seat Parliament, but
because of the cross-cutting of
national interests and ideological
orientations, permanent lineups
are unlikely to occur.
"Majorities will be rather fluid
and ad hoc, varying from issue to
issue." the report predicts Nine
Jewish members were elected
from three countries: they rep-
resent a wide range of political
viewpoints, with Mme Simone
Veil from France, who headed the
pro-Giscardian UDF list, the
newly-chosen president Very few
right-wing extremists were
elected, and they are too isolated
to be effective
The report explains that, under
the Treaty of Rome, the terms of
reference of the EEC are limited
almost exclusively to economic
matters: of these, the Arab boy-
cott is of particular Jewish in-
terest But the nine member
states discuss "in political co-
operation" all sorts of other
political matters, and all these
could certainly be raised in the
European Parliament
THE OLD Parliament dis-
cussed, among others, human
rights, discrimination, terrorism
and the Middle East conflict As
part of the European electorate.
Jewish communities in the nine
countries, cooperating in the
framework of the World Jewish
Congress EEC Committee, are
justified in seeking the support of
their new representatives on
these issues. I f the significance of
the Parliament increased, so
would the value of such support
A second report deals with the

within the non-aligned movement

inextricably bound up with the
struggle to eradicate power bloc
THERE IS a conflict between
two opposing conceptions of the
purpose of the movement

instrument of Moscow" and
Tito's desire to "adhere to the
original aim of non-alignment

major military blocs."
In addition, there is a variety
of regional conflicts Arab

lateral peace efforts being one of
them The Bureau was unable to
resolve any of these problems.
The report focuses on the
attempt by the rejectionist Arab
states to get Egypt expelled from
the movement because of her
peace treaty with Israel As a
result of strong opposition on the
part of the Black African states,
this move was blocked.
analysis, the prospects for the
Havana Summit of the non-
aligned are not good-
Some participants at the
Colombo meeting felt that the
airing of disagreements was a
sign of the movement's strength,
but the report suggests that "the
conflicting interests are rapidly
becoming irreconcilable" If the
differences remain unresolved,
"the possibility of some insti-
tutionalized split in the move-
ment cannot be ruled out"

the Assyrians and are now known as the 10 lost tribes of Israel).

American Jewish leaders are
reacting sharply to President
Carter's statement likening the
Palestinian issue to the civil
rights movement in the United
States. They point out that the
civil rights movement never
resorted to violence, while the
Palestinian movement is charac-
terized by acts of terrorism.
The sharp and angry response
by the American Jewish leader-
ship followed by a wide-ranging
interview in The New York
Times, in which the President
declared that he does not think
that stable peace can come to the
Mideast without a solution to the
Palestinian problem and said
that the Palestinian cause could
be likened to the "civil rights
movement here in the United
CARTER WAS reported to
say that if the Israelis permitted
the Palestinians to come back to
the West Bank, they (the Pales-
tinians) would be satisfied with
"just the right to do it."
But, the President reportedly
added, only a relatively small
number of Palestinians, scattered
throughout the Arab world,
would want to return to the
poverty of the area.
Carter expressed the hope that
American Jewish leaders he
named two, according to the
interview: Sol Linowitz, a
Washington lawyer who helped
negotiate the Panama Canal
treaties, and Robert Strauss, the
President's special envoy to the
Mideast will support his ef-
forts that will give autonomy to
the Palestinians on such issues as
schools, police, housing and im-
migration on the West Bank.
THE PRESIDENT also said,
according to the interview, he
believed that the Palestinian
Arabs would be willing to accept
the physical presence of Israeli
units as a safeguard of their
national security. Based on polls
he has seen, Carter said he
believed the majority of the
Israeli people favor a settlement
with the Palestinians based on
Security Council Resolution 242.

declared: "President Carter will
lose the confidence of the Amer-
ican Jewish community if he tries
to equate the Palestinian cause
with the U.S. civil rights move-
ment. It makes a mockery of the
civil rights cause and distorts the
opportunities for the Palestinian
people to solve their problems by
negotiating with Israel. The
Palestinians stood in their own
way not Israel."
Bertram Gold, executive vice
president of the American Jewish
Committee, stated that "Carter
does an injustice to the U.S. civil
rights movement when he likens
the Palestinian issue to it. The
civil rights movement never
resorted to the acts of terrorism
against innocent people that so
characterizes the activities of the
PLO, which is the most visible
part of the movement for Pales-

that a secular king is redundant
to the transcendent heavenly
Jewish king. It was Nathan who
warned that nationhood does not
secure a people's ideals; it
corrupts them-
Nationhood is a political beast
unrelated to the people who
compose it Nationhood lies,
steals, murders, wars and other-
wise oppresses the people it
presumes to represent whose
lives it presumes to secure. But
nationhood is really a thing unto
itself dedicated to the survival of
nationhood at whatever human
and ethical cost
FOR ALL these reasons,
Nathan warned the Jews against
nationhood and urged them to re-
dedicate themselves to the
principles of their divinity in-
stead not to emulate their
neighbors in vain allegiance to
secular institutions.
In Israel's struggle to survive
today, we sadly see the eroding of
Jewish ideals which fall victim to
expedient nationhood precisely
as Nathan prophesied, r rom the
dynasty of King Saul to the
victory arches in Rome and
Jerusalem celebrating the final
collapse of ancient Judea, we are
made intensely uncomfortable by
his foresight
It is not Israel it is not in-
dividual Jews as tragic sacrifices
of the Holocaust we must focus
upon. It is the glory of our past
history, wherever we are, which
must impel us toward our future.
ISRAEL ARGUES, with con-
siderable justification, that this
can best be done in Israel. That
may well be so. Still, the struggle
we face to loosen ourselves from
our holocaustic obsession is
common to Jews in Israel as well
as out
Our special status, if we have
one, lies not in growing ac-
customed to the wheelchair of our
most recent misery, but in our
stars- And these shine in celestial
splendor everywhere.
If this is not so, then all our
efforts, in behalf of Israel and
ourselves, are an absurdity. We
dedicate ourselves to the success-
ful survival of Israel as a haven of
Jewish security; we say Masada
shall not fall again, at the same
time that we assimilate ourselves
out of Jewish existence by rising
rates of intermarriage or, what is
worse, sheer indifference- In
which case, of what use is our
drive for security except as a
contradiction in terms a self-
cancelling of our destiny?
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
EKEV In summarizing the laws, Moses stressed their inner
spirit God's love for Israel and the need for Israel's love for
God. He reminded the Israelites of the close relationship which
must always exist between them and the Almighty.
"And now, Israel," said Moses, "what does the Lord your
God ask of you, but to reverence the Lord your God, to walk in
His ways, to love Him, to worship Him with all your heart and
all your soul; and to obey the rules and regulations which I
command you this day.
If you will always observe and practice all these command-
ments which I am giving you, to love the Lord your God, and to
be loyal to Him, then the Lord your God will drive out all these
nations before you and you shall conquer nations greater and
mightier than you are yourselves; every place you pass through
shall be yours, from the desert to Lebanon; from the Euphrates
River to the Mediterranean Sea shall be your border. No one will
be able to stand against you, for the Lord your God will put the
fear of you in everyone's heart, as He has told you."

The Senate has approved an amendment to the
Export Administration Act that would prohibit
the U.S. from exporting to countries that
demonstrated a pattern of support for in-
ternational terrorism, any goods or technology
that could contribute to such countries' military
potential or enhance their ability to support acts
of international terrorism. The amendment also
provides for suspension of such ban by the
President if he deems it to be in the interests of
national security.
The amendment was introduced by Sen. Jacob
Javits (R., N.Y.). He observed, "It is a fact that
three countries are now named by the Depart-
ment of State as aiding and abetting international
terorism. The countries are Iraq, South Yemen
and Libya." Javits noted, however, that other
countries could be added to this list.

nounced the formation of the Free Raoul
Wallenberg Committee in the United States.
The announcement in New York was made in
connection with Mrs. Nina Lagergren, Wallen-
berg's half-sister. The committee, which will be
co-chaired by the four senators, will cooperate in
an international campaign to obtain the release of
Wallenberg from a Soviet prison, where he is
believed to have been held since World War II.

working in Budapest. Hungary, during World
War II in a successful effort to save thousands of
Hungarian Jews from extermination in Nazi
concentration camps.
When the Soviet army captured Budapest in
1945, Wallenberg was promptly arrested, whisked
off to Moscow, and sentenced to prison without
trial on a charge of espionage.
A major split in the leadership of the neo-Nazi

not for the sin; for the actor,

poach, not lead to the ac-
ance of synagogues for

<'<' of the Rabbinical
embly (Conservative) has
*ered in the negative with a
ruling that "no special homo-
sexual synagogues should be
established" though it has not
gone unchallenged.
WRITING in the Summer,
1977 issue of the (Conservative)
United Synagogue Review,
Rabbi B. D. Schwartz asserted
that "separate gay synagogues
have been formed precisely
because the homosexual has not
felt comfortable in existing
religious institutions. It is the
opinion of the writer that, as long
as that situation prevails, these
synagogues perform a vital
religious function. We need not
alierate any Jew or group of Jews
who wish to gather for study and
prayer, sexual preferences not-
On the issue of gay
synagogues, the voice of
Orthodoxy is unequivocal. Rabbi
Lamm states that, "To assent to
the organization of separate 'gay'
groups under Jewish auspices
makes no more sense, Jewishly,
than to suffer the formation of
synagogues that cater ex-
clusively to idol worshippers,
adulterers, gossipers (sic), tax
evaders or Sabbath violators.
Indeed, it makes less sense
because it provides, under
religious auspices, a ready-made
clientele from which the homo-
sexual can more readily choose
his partners."
No statistics are available to
indicate whether the number of
Jewish gays is disproportionately
high. There is, however, little
doubt that Jews are dispropor-
tionately prominent in the move-
ment. For one thing, many of
them work in the com-
Israel Olympic Team
Assured of Playing
In Moscow Games
NEW YORK (JTA) Yitzhak Caspi, secretary of
the Israel Olympic Team, on the way home from the
International Olympic Committee meetings held
simultaneously with the Pan American Games in Puerto
Rico, stopped in at the Jewish Telegraphic Agency offices
and chatted with me concerning the 1980 Olympic Games
in Moscow.
To say the least, Caspi was very excited over the
reception he and his associate, Yitzhok Ofek, president of
the Israel Olympic Committee, received from the Russian
"THE TWO Russian delegates assured us that there
would be no problems whatsoever in so far as Israel and
its participation in the Games is concerned," Caspi
"As a matter of fact, the Russian delegation, on two
occasions, once during the International Olympic
Committee meeting itself, and then in the complete
assembly, which calls for two delegates from each of the
100-plus countries present, repeated the fact that it is the
intention of the Russian sports committee to build a
church, a synagogue, and a Moslem mosque, in the
Olympic compound. All three faiths will be able to pray in
their respective houses of worship right on the premises
where the athletes will be housed."
IN ADDITION, Caspi said, "The Russians advised
us that Israel will be permitted a total of 170 tourists, all
of whom will be permitted to pray in the main synagogue,
located in Moscow."
munications industry they are
experienced as writers and
speakers and have become the
most articulate spokesman for
gay rights. It also owes much to
the fact that the movement is
predominantly a big city
phenomenon and Jews are
largely urban. It's hard to be a
practicing gay in, say, Plains,
Ga. Cities, on the other hand,
breed anonymity and weaken
social sanctions.
THE GAY LIB Movement
followed that for Women's Lib
and shared some of the same
characteristics. Early cam-
paigners for Women's Lib often
took extreme positions but
maybe bcause of that, the move-
ment did serve the purpose of
bringing into the arena of public
discussion the genuine and wide-
spread disabilities which women
have suffered. Similarly, the
militants of Gay Lib, while pro-
voking a no less militant reac-
tion, have succeeded in lifting the
taboo on the discussion of this
subject of homosexuals.
One way or another,
homosexuality is likely to
continue as a Jewish issue in the
United States. Religious and
communal agencies will have to
confront a number of problems if
the gay synagogues continue to
grow and seek to play a part in
the wide range of communal
activities. Will the national
organizations accept them? And
other questions have already
been raised like "Can a Jewish
homosexual become a rabbi?"
and, "Can a synagogue celebrate
a homosexual union?" The
debate in American Jewry has
only just begun.
