Sen. Richard Stone (D., Fla.),
chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations subcommittee on the
Middle East, was quoted here as
saying that U.S. Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance had told him
at a breakfast meeting that the
U.S. would adhere to its promise
not to deal with the PLO until it
recognized Resolution 242 and
recognized Israel's right to live
peacefully within secure borders.
STONE ALSO said that Vance
assured him the U.S. would veto
the Security Council resolution
on Palestinian rights as it now
stands because it would alter 242
by calling for granting
Palestinian self-determination
and the right to an independent
state. In Washington, the State
Department declined meanwhile
to comment on what Vance said
to Stone.
Stone's statement, issued in
Washington, contrasted strongly
with the gloomy view presented
earlier in the day by Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan who said
in interviews with the press that
the American stance towards
Israel was "not just an erosion,
but a fundamental change in

added, are seeking to placate the

view abroad that it is "dying
economically'" has led foreign
statesmen to believe they could
pressure Israel for new con-
cessions. He blamed primarily
the government coalition and
ministers responsible for the
economy for this state of affairs.
Meanwhile, Dayan's sen-
sational press interviews in which
he hit out at the government's
economic policy, has exacerbated
tensions within the Likud. One
effect it seems to have had is to
increase the widespread feeling
within the factions comprising
the Likud bloc that radical
changes in the composition of the
Cabinet are needed, urgently.

dication at all that Begin may

Attacks Continue Against CBS-TV
CBS-TV has come under
fresh attack from Jewish
organizations for selecting
Vanessa Redgrave, an out-
spoken supporter of the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization, for the role of a
Nazi concentration camp
survivor in a TV film based
on Fania Fenelon's book,
Playing for Time.
The latest denunciations
came from the Anti-Defa-
mation League of B'nai
B'rith and the American
Jewish Congress.
Dore Schary, honorary ADL
chairman and a producer,
playwright and author, said that
casting Miss Redgrave for the
film dealing with Miss Fenelon's
memoirs about musicians who
were forced to play for the Nazis
in concentration camps indicated
that CBS had a "profound lack of
sensitivity and understanding."
HE SAID that Redgrave, "an
actor of talent, has opportunities
to play many other roles, but to
cast her as one of the victims of
the Holocaust is, we suggest, a
trick, a stunt, a misguided
Schary suggested that perhaps
she chose to play this part "as a
gesture of redemption because of
her close alliance with the
terrorists of the PLO the film
she made, The Palestinians,
showed little children practicing
the killing of Jews and aiding the
obscene propaganda of the
However, Schary added, "If
redemption is not the aim,
perhaps CBS believes that her
performance will make her aware
of the necessity for the creation of
Israel and make her realize how
necessary it is for that small,
beleaguered country to defend
itself against 60 million ad-
versaries who seek its
Redgrave in the TV film
"degrades, offends, depreciates
those who survived the death
camps and defames the names of
those who died in them."
Howard M. Squadron,
AJCongress president, called the
Redgrave casting "grotesque"
and certain to be "offensive to
the Jewish community." He
expressed the hope that Miss
Redgrave, in that performance,
might learn something "about
the Nazi slaughter of the Jews"
and "recognize at last that the
Jewish people have a right to a
state of their own" that seeks
only "to live in peace with its
Arab neighbors."
At the same time, Arthur
Miller, who wrote the screenplay
for the film, said in a statement
that "Miss Redgrave was offered
the role of Fania Fenelon as an
actress suited to it.
"TO FIRE her now for her
political views would be
blacklisting. Having been
blacklisted myself in time past, I
have fought against the practice
abroad as well as here, and I
cannot participate in it now."
Miller added, "No actress can
possibly play Fania in this play

At the Friday night service, Monica and

Poor Vanessa
Poor Vanessa Redgrave.
After several years of courting the PLO, she now
finds that her political activities may not permit her
to be the star of a movie on the Holocaust. It seems
she was to be cast in the role of a survivor of Ausch-
witz. Members of the Jewish community in England
and now United States organizations are objecting to
her playing this role.
It is past time for some public figures to realize
that they can not publicly embrace terrorists and
murderers who call for the extinction of a country
and the annihilation of its people and then expect to
be treated as fine upstanding citizens.
We are judged by the company we keep, Miss
Redgrave. Maybe your companions should be
changed. For the good of the world and maybe even
your own career.
Dr. Mengele's End ?
It is hard to forget the indifferent way in which
the Allied powers let Josef Mengele out of its grasp
at the end of World II. Even the defeated Germany,
which one would have thought anxious to
rehabilitate itself in the eyes of the civilized world
after the Nazi era, did nothing to retrieve him.
And it was all so easy to catch up with the in-
famous concentration camp doctor, too. Mengele had
simply gone home toGinsburg, where his father and
the family of Alfred Mengele virtually own the whole
town and environs.
What is even more unbelievable is the equally
indifferent way in which all concerned let Mengele
escape to Latin America, where he found ultimate
refuge in Paraguay's large German colony and the
odious Nazi revivalist movement there.
But if no one else has learned from the past,
certainly West Germany has. Now, Paraguay has
acted to remove citizenship status from Dr. Mengele,
and it is hoped that extradition to West Germany
will not be far behind.
The difficulty is that Mengele is as slippery as
an eel. He has proven this time and again in the past,
when reports of his whereabouts made Mengele move
from one Latin hideout to another.
We hope that this time the butcher will be
Israel and the Olympics
What with all the injured feelings Jews have
about the Soviet Union, we wonder two things:
1. Why is it important that Israel play in the
Olympic Games in Moscow in 1980?
2. Why don't we rechannel some of the energy
we're expending on assuring item No. 1 to launch an
international campaign to remove the Olympics from
We seriously doubt that No. 2 can be achieved,
but at least we can alert an indifferent world to the
meaning of the Olympics in Moscow with parallels in
history notably to the Olympics in Berlin in 1936
and the enormous propagandistic boost the Games
there gave to the rising Nazi beast.
Furthermore, Israel's spurning of the Moscow
event might well save the country and those who love
her considerable embarrassment and propagandistic
grist for the Communist mill and those who help turn
it, including Arab terrorists, should her participation
be barred or limited.
We realize that sports-minded people will not
agree, but there is no denying the enormous political
element involved in the Olympics especially for
the Soviets, who use all such events and Soviet
victories in them as a stage to project Communist
ideology by implication. In considering the factors
we raise here, those who would not agree with us
might take a second look.

rallies and celebrations. Be it the

to demonstrate solidarity or

Only its glassed front twinkles
with the reflections of projectors
and fireworks, as if musing
silently about the city's past.
It all started on April 11,1909,
when 60 families set out to build
their 60 homes on 110 dunams of
sand dunes north of Jaffa. In 70
years this has grown to 350,000

Begin Cites 'Decade
Of Responsibility'
NEW YORK In a special
message to the American Jewish
community, Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin has
characterized the 1980 United
Jewish Appeal campaign as a key
element in beginning "a new
decade of responsibility, a decade
when ancient dreams are
The message, released here by
I rwin S. Field, UJA national
chairman, was directed to par-
ticipants in the forthcoming UJA
Prime Minister's Mission, which
will launch the 1980 Campaign.
The Begin statement calls on
American Jewry to respond to
the challenges of peace with even
greater urgency than during time
of war.
Some 300 American Jewish
leaders are expected to par-
ticipate in the Prime Minister's
Mission, which will arrive in
Israel on Aug. 27 for four in-
tensive days of high level
briefings. Geared to major 1980
Campaign issues, the itinerary
will include visits to Negev
resettlement sites, Jewish
Agency absorption centers and
Project Renewal neighborhoods.
Meetings are scheduled with
President Yitzhak Navon,
Deputy Prime Minister Yigael
Yadin, Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan, Leon Dulzin, chairman of
the Jewish Agency, and Akiva
Lewinsky, Jewish Agency
treasurer. The mission will
culminate with a reception and
dinner at the Knesset hosted by
Prime Minister Begin.
The Begin message urges the
American Jewish community to
join the people of Israel "in
welcoming new immigrants with
decent conditions with proper
homes in which to live, with
adequate education for their
children, with all the social
services which make settling in
Eretz Yisrael easier."
Begin also cites American
Jewry's vital commitment to
Project Renewal. "We cannot
provide for the new Israelis
without also providing for the
300,000 already living in in-
tolerable conditions. Together we
shall meet this great partnership

Today I'm a Pumpkin

Any day now I expect to receive a letter from the religion
school to tell me that classes will soon be starting. And, just till
see months as colors (doesn't everyone.), I think of religious
school in terms of costumes.
This aberration probably is due to the fact that in the little I
town where I grew up, there was no synagogue. There wau\
religious school though, due to the untiring efforts of the women
of "The Sisterhood."
Our religious school was located in a few rooms above the I
local drugstore and met every Sunday morning from 10'til noon.
The students were a motley bunch. We loosely ranged in age
from four to 15, with gaping holes in many of the groupings.
Consequently, it was not at all uncommon for an eight-year-old
who read well to be in the Jewish history class with a 12-year-old |
who didn't.
THE WOMEN who ran our religious school were few in
number. There was no administrator, no principal, and often, no
t earlier for a particular class ... so we doubled up. There we sat |
in our good Sunday School clothes, the big and the small.
We younger ones colored pictures a lot black and white I
outlines of people we would be studying and talking about. They
came in neatly packed folders that closed with a string yon
wound around a button. One year I immediately cut off the |
string to "see what would happen." Some of the pictures mutt
have fallen out. When it came time to color "Joseph and the j
("out of Many Colors," I had none. Ever resourceful, I leaned
over and helped myself to Mimi's. For months I lived in terror
that a revengeful God would shower His wrath upon me. But, by
the time I was seven, nothing had happened. I figured He must
have had His attention elsewhere but never pushed my luck
Hut although we might have lacked something in our
educational program, our religious school more than made up for
it in our presentations." All of our teachers (mothers, alllwere
frustrated producers and directors. Therefore, even the most
minor of holidays was ushered in grandly by a major production.
For two years running, 1 portrayed an ear of corn in the
Sukkoth ceremony. There I stood, wiggly because the yellow
crepe paper that enveloped me from head to toe, itched. The
upper classmen lone 10-year-old, one 12-year-old and a 15-year-
old, whose mother wouldn't let him quit religious school because
she loved doing the shows too much) recited poems about
"Sukkoth s took us days to build."
THE FOLLOWING year I graduated into the pumpkin
costume which previously had been wom by a short 14-year old
who had his own built-in padding. I still was thin then, and had
to be "fleshed out" by three pillows tied around my waist.
During the reading of the poem, howevor, the pillows began to
slip. By the time the grand finale came around, 1 looked more
like an over-ripe gourd than a pumpkin.
For Chanukah, I was costumed once more in yellow crepe
paper, this time with lettering on the side to resemble a dreidel. I
was not asked to repeat my performance the following year,
however, probably due to the fact that while spinning (on cuell
spun off the stage, knocked a baby tooth out and bled allJ>ver
the three "candles" in the cardboard menorah. (We never had a
full complement of candles because our school was too small)
The most comfortable costume I remember was for Punm.
Year after year, until I was 12 and rebelled, I stood in my wooiy
plaid bathrobe, holding a broom handle, and guarded "Queen
Esther." For some reason I never was picked to be Esther,
although I came very close. Once I almost was Haiman.
Unfortunately, Jerry convinced the director that Haiman could
have had a broken arm and bumped me back to my role as
Esther's guard and back into my bathrobe.
Today, almost nobody wears crepe paper costumes. Of
can be Haiman or Mordechai if they want. Presentations are
more polished and more professional-looking. Happily, thougn,
for someone who once was one, the corn is still there.

spent some time on a kibbutz
years ago.
Goldschmidt was first elected
mayor in 1973 when at the age of
32 he was one of the nation's
youngest mayors.

Barney Shorestein and sister and brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs.
Harry Eff, all from Miami. This undertaking is illustrative of the
vim and vigor with which Nat charges through life and through
his many and varied community commitments. Our fondest

Five youth group members from Congregation Schaarai
Zedek will be attending SEFTY Camp at Camp Coleman (in
Cleveland, Ga.) this month. Those attending are: Rhonda
Zamore, Diane Stiegel, Annette Jenkins, Michael Baron and
Nancy Cohen. Hope you all have a stimulating, informative, and
fun-filled camp session.
Meet Franci and Richard Rudolph, who moved to the
Bayway area just three weeks ago from Syracuse, N.Y. Also in
the Rudolph family are 7-month-old Lesley and 3-year-old
Benjamin. Benjamin is enjoying the second session at Camp
K'Ton Ton and is enrolled in the Jewish Community Center pre-
school for the fall. The Rudolphs have already become JCC
members and look forward to joining a temple in the near future.
Franci, who is originally from Chicago, taught Sunday school,
was very active in numerous organizations in Syracuse, and fills
her spare time with reading, tennis and needlepoint. Richard,
who is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and has
stayed active in their alumni association, loves fishing and
tennis. Though they have only been here a few weeks, the
Rudolphs said that they love Tampa already (and will especially
love it when the snow starts falling in New York.) A warm and
hearty welcome to our city!
Even if you've only lived in Tampa for a short period of
time, surely you have either heard of, seen, or even personally
experienced "BUC-mania." Not only is it highly contagious, but
the symptoms of this disease are almost as bad as all other social
diseases known to mankind! The itching starts in early July (the
fans are just "itching" to get a look at John McKay's new draft
choices in action or in lack of action, whichever the case may
be). By August 1, a frightening color change begins to take
place. Everything starts to turn orange and white! Well, by the
time the first pre-season game begins (this year it was on Satur-
day, August 4th against the Washington Redskins), one
possessed with terminal "BUC-mania" is now eating, sleeping
and jabbering such unintelligent phrases as: "Check that
swashbuckler's pom-pom"; "Ricky Bell has yet to ring my
chime"; and "what's an Achilles heel?" On the big day at the
strike of 6 p.m., tailgates open up, fried chicken starts dripping,
and beer begins to foam. It doesn't matter that you get the drip,
drip, drip of acid indigestion coupled with severe nausea, just
because you tried to eat a four-course dinner in less than 12
minutes while standing behind the exhaust pipe of yourrffajtion
wagon. The important thing is that a 'BUC-maniac'' muii get
to his seat in the 91st row, East stands (better known as the
sunny side), on the four-yard line (which he considered a real
steal of a seat at a mere $240 per ticket!) before the players
run out on the field. And sure, 69,000 tickets were sold (the fans
thought they were going to a Dallas Cowboys game!). Surprise!
Surprise! Surprise! It's those good ole Buccaneers those
fumbling, faltering, foul-up football players that we know and
love year after year. Yet, the loyal "BUC-maniac" doesn't
care that we're defeated time and time again it's the whole
fever of the event that keeps this disease alive and spreading.
And now I have just one last statement to make Ain't
Football Terrific?!!?! Until next week .

The Messiah
Ben David in
Talmudic Literature
Part 2 in a 3-oart aeries
In the year 70 of our common era (C.E.) the Roman legions
destroyed the Temple in Jerusalem and by so doing fired the
Judean National Consciousness with a burning desire for a
Messiah. This messiah was expected to restore the Davidic
dynasty and establish political independence once more. While
this Messianic hope was entwined with various eschatological
features, it remained basically a this-world, national ideal.
The following paragraphs cite some of the sources from
which the changing concept of the Messiah evolved. Beruchos
28b (Talmud Babli) relates that Rabbi Yohanon Ben Zakkai (75
C.E.) said. Prepare a throne for Hezekiah, king of Judea, who is
When did he come? Where was he? Rabbi Ben Zakkai s
faith was so great that he never questioned, never doubted that
the most revered and saintly leader, the beloved of the prophet
Isaiah, himself, was to return to his people as the Messiah.
HEZEKIAH HAD mounted the throne of David at a very
young age. after the death of his father, King Ahaz (720 BCE).
The advent of his reign was hailed by the great prophet Isaiah,
who said: "The people that walked in darkness have seen a great
light." "A child is born unto us, a son is given unto us, and the
government is upon his shoulders."
Inspired and guided by Isaiah. Hezekiah initiated significant
reforms. His first goal was to cleanse the land of all idolotry;
the second was to make the Temple in Jerusalem the center of
worship for all.
During this period Isaiah prophesied: "And it shall come to
pass in that day, that the Lord will set His hand again the
second time, to recover the remnant of his people. And will
assemble the dispersed of Israel and gather together the
scattered of Judah from the four corners of the earth."
In that day, "the end of days," the God of Israel shall be
worshipped by all the nations of the earth. He will teach them of
His ways and they shall walk in His paths. "For out of Zion
shall go forth the Law and the work of the Lord from
ISAIAH ALSO prophesied of everlasting peace among the
nations. This also shall come to pass in "the end of days." "They
shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into
pruning-hooks: Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more."
The prophet had been looking forward to the coming of a
perfect king, the Messiah, God's anointed, the righteous ruler of
the house of David. "The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
the spirit of wisdom and understanding." The poor and the weak
shall have justice at last.
"With righteousness shall he judge the poor, and with equity
decide for the weak of the land. And he shall smite the land with
the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay
the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins,
and faithfulness the girdle of his reins."
Many wise and righteous men looked upon Hezekiah as the
Messiah. The sage Hillel said. "Israel no longer need expect thf
Messiah for he already appeared in the days of Hezekiah.'
BAR KAPPARA said, "The Lord wishes to make Hezekiah
the Messiah but justice protested and said, "Master of the
Universe, David who says so many songs unto thee, Thou didst
not make Messiah. Hezekiah, for whom you performed many
miracles, yet he did not sing praises unto Thee, wilt Thou make
him Messiah?"
Rabbi Yohanon ben Zakkai, who died 10 years after the
destruction of the Temple had been awaiting the coming of the
Messiah at that time in the imminent future (80 C.E.)
There were many who speculated as to when the Messiah
would come. The rabbis of the first and the early part of the
second centuries, who lived through the time of the destruction
of the Temple, expected the Messiah momentarily. Whereas
those who lived after the Bar Kochba revolution suffered keen
disillusionment and saw the coming of the Messiah as far away.
The rabbis sought to project the Messianic hope to a more
distant future, calling the intervening years of the persecutions -
"Chavlie Mashiah." the travail pains of the Messianic Age.
Conditions ushering in the Messiah are described in Talmud
Sanhedrin 97a. Rabbi Judah said: "In the generation when the
Son of David will come, the scholars' meeting places will become
places of debauchery. Galilee will be destroyed, men will wander
from town to town; the scholar will be held in contempt; the face
of the generation will be like the face of a dog; truth will nowhere
be found; the wise shall be silent for the foolish shall speak."
RABBI NEHORAI said, "In the generation when the Son
of David will come, youths will put old men to shame, a
daughter will rise up against her mother, a son will not respect
his father."
Rabbi Nehemiah said, "Insolence will increase; high prices
will prevail."
There were those who would not accept these sad
prophesies, who wanted a Messiah so much that they looked for
Messiahs within their times and found many false Messiahs. We
shall write about some of the false Messiahs next week.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
R'AY Moses called together the Children of Israel. He
repeated the laws by which they must live, and laid the foun-
dation for the practice of tzedakah or righteousness, observed by
our people to this day. He said to the priests and the Levites:
"After you have entered the Land of Canaan, arrange the
Israelites by tribes facing each other on Mount Gerizim and
Mount Ebal. There you will teach the rewards they will receive if
they obey God's laws and the punishments if they disobey."
And Moses reminded the Israelites that they were always
to take care of the poor among them.
"At the end of every three years," he said, "you shall
contribute taxes for the poorfor the Levite (for be has no share
in the land), for the stranger, the orphan, and the widow.
After every seventh year, you shall free everyone from loans
borrowed because of trouble in the family.
"For God has said: 'There will always be poor people
among you; therefore, never refuse to help the poor and needy
in your land.' Deuteronomy 11:2616:17

| Tel Aviv is Israel's major
banking and financial center, the
site of much of the country's
commerce and industry, and a
mecca for tourism with its ex-
tensive accommodation, dining
and entertainment facilities.
Visitors are equally attracted to
the Oriental Carmel Market and
the Exhibition Gardens, often
displaying the latest techno-
logical marvels; the Beit
Hatefutzot museum of the
Diaspora is a "must" for the
serious. Most Israeli books and
newspapers are published within
the city limits.
During the seven decades of
their history, the people of Tel
Aviv-Jaffa have learned to
"overcome." There was exile by
the Turkish masters in 1917,
repeated bloody Arab riots, and
even some Italian air raids in
World War II.
Who can forget preparations
for dealing with possible victims
of the 1967 War or the grim
atmosphere of the first days of
the Yom Kippur War?
IN MORE recent incidents like
the Savoy Hotel attack, the
seaside bus carnage and the
Carmel Market bombing, each
produced its heroes and the true
moral fiber of individuals came to
the fore.
It was the same people who
over 30 years ago bore the brunt
of the victorious struggle for
independence against tre-

when the State was born and here
they saw death and destruction

wiet wishes.
UNLIKE HIS predecessors
who were friendly or scrupulously
neutral so far as Israel was
concerned, the current Secretary
General is decidedly unfriendly to
the Jewish State and highly
responsive to extreme Arab
views. The Israelis cannot forget
that the Six-Day War was
started when a browbeaten
Secretary General pulled the UN
truce observation force out of the
Sinai and exposed Israel's
borders to Nasser's tanks.
The Israelis proved their desire
for peace in the tedious,
protracted negotiations that
resulted in the Camp David
accords. They also revealed that
their paramount concern is their
national security.
They cannot now be expected
to entrust any part of their
security to a force which has
proved incompetent, unable and
unwilling to live up to its
obligations in the past, and they
can be expected to do their ut-
most to make Carter live up to
the promise he made them.
THE EPISODE, illustrates a
fundamental flaw in the Carter
Administration's approach to the
whole problem of peace in the
Middle East an insensitivity to
Israel's security concerns and to
Israeli opinion. It may well be
that the State Department is
correct in its assessment that the
unarmed observer force
scheduled to replace the 4,000-
man UNEF would prove
adequate since, if the Egyptian-
Israeli peace is a sincere and
lasting one, probably no outside
force is necessary.
If there should be a breakdown
in the peace process, and the two
countries should again resort to
war. all a UN force could do
would be to get out of the way
just as fast as it could.
The real problem is that the
United States has lost a great
deal of what credibility it had left

U.S. Films Stereotype
Jews and Jewish
Movie-Goers to Blame
A 25-year-old New York
Orthodox Jew, who makes films
when he can get financial
backing, has expressed the belief
that American films generally
stereotype Jews and blames
Jewish movie-goers to some
degree for that situation.
Earle Shulman, who has a
major in mathematics and works
at odd jobs between film-making
spelled out his views in an
analysis in the December 1978
issue of Network, the publication
of the North American Jewish
Student Network, an umbrella
agency for a wide range of Jewish
youth groups.
Shulman listed some foreign-
made films involving Jews in
support of his goal of putting into
perspective "the lack of quality
in American Jewish movies." He
listed as foreign films which deal
seriously with Jews the oft-cited
classic, "The Shop in Main
Street," "The Two of Us,"
"Black Thursday, "Mr. Klein,"
as well as "Jacob the Liar,"
which he said was filmed in East
HE DECLARED all of those
films dealt with the Holocaust,
and he suggested that film-
makers in those three countries
Czechoslovakia, France and
East Germany had tried to
work out some of their feelings
through their films about the
Nazi period "by trying to un-
derstand the Jewish experience
as it was then."
By contrast, he said, in the
United States "we did everything
in our power to ignore the
Holocaust. He contended that
this "is why the rare movie that
comes along in American con-
cerning the Holocaust is trivial."
He cited "Voyage of the Dam-
ned" as an example.
Arguing that this film
amounted to a "remake" of
"Grand Hotel," Shulman
declared that the movie industry
does exploit the Holocaust.
"Whenever any instantly
identifiable villan is called for,
bring out the Nazi. Shulman
added that "combine Nazis with
the hot topic of cloning and you
get 'The Boys from Brazil'." He
added: "Combine them with a
concentration camp survivor's
nightmare, and we have the
exploitative 'The Pawnbroker.'
Combine them with action and
adventure and we have 'The
Odessa File'."
HE ALSO was critical of
"Fiddler on the Roof," asking "Is
this how America thinks of
Russian Jewry? Charmingly
singing and dancing their time
away while awaiting the next
pogrom which will bring death to
most of the men and rape and
slaughter to most of the women
and children? He added the
caustic comment that "im-
mediately following the pogrom
everyone can picturesquely
march off into the sunset on their
way to America."
He said he found even more
objectionable the quin-
tessential Jewish stereotypes
"Portnoy's Complaint,"
"Goodbye Columbus" and "Bye
Bye Braverman." He declared
they contained portrayals of
Jews, "grown people no less,
making pigs of themselves at
parties, behaving boorishly
because they have come into a
little money, exulting glut-
tonously in the upward mobility
and acting uncomfortable in their
cute Jewish way when en-
countering the people who have
taken ober their former places in
the ghetto."
Shulman commented that "if
Blacks were portrayed this way,
an uproar would be heard which
would break our eardrums. But
not Jews. They sit and either
think these things are cute, are
true, are not worth bothering
about or are worth bothering
about but do not want to look
pushy by making a fuss." He
remarked this may be a reason no
quality Jewish theme films are
made in the United States,
adding "why should quality
movies be made on the subject if
everyone seems to be satisfied
with tripe?"
He then discussed some
movies about Jews "that were or
tried to he of quality" "Hester
Street," "Lies My Father Told
Me," "The Angel Levine" and
"The Apprenticeship of Duddy
HE SAID "Hester Street,"
which he called the most famous
and successful of these films, was
independently produced because
no commercial studio thought it
was economically feasible. He
added that after it was made, "on
a shoestring budget," nobody
would risk the cost of
distribution. He declared that not
