beginning of the fall, the Jew
indicates by his actions that he is
not entering the Sukkah to
"escape" the indoors, but is
doing so to fulfil the com-
mandment. It is for this reason
that Sukkot has been regarded as
a festival in which the Jew shows
his trust in his Creator. The Jew
leaves his sturdy home and in-
stead spends a week in a booth
which may by ramshackle in the
extreme.
As far as the actual com-
position of the Sukkah, it can
vary from the most flimsy, with
"walls" of cardboard or blankets
to the most lavish. There are in
fact examples of Sukkot, now on
display in the Israel Museum,
which were transported from
Europe. One of these is a
beautiful wooden room with
painted and decorated walls and
even a real window.

having artificial heating. (Of
course the fact that the "roof"
must be made of vegetation of
some kind, leaving holes through
which at least the stars can be
seen at night, means that the
heating unit has to compete
against the elements).
A Hassidic rabbi once
proclaimed that the com-
mandment to "dwell" in a
Sukkah is one of the greatest, for
it is among the very few which
the person performs with every
single organ of his body
simply by being present in the
Sukkah itself. What makes the
Sukkah even more special is the
Halachic requirement that one
temporarily move his "dwelling"
into the Sukkah. It is commonly
accepted that during Sukkot one
eats all one's meals in the
Sukkah, but the truly pious
spend all their time in it in-
cluding sleeping in it nightly. The
Sukkah thus becomes a com-
mandment which embraces one's
entire body and most of one's
time for a full week.
Whereas owners of private
homes who have a front or back
lot have normally not found
difficulties in building a Sukkah,
those who live in apartment
houses have usually had to find a
vacant area downstairs or else
have had to clamber onto the roof
to find an area which was open on
which to construct their Sukkah.

who built his Sukkah. but found

Rev. Jackson
Stirs Jewish
Leaders' Ire
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Five American Jews,
who accompanied the Rev.
Jesse Jackson to Israel,
quit the group last week
protesting Jackson's be-
havior here. The five were
led by Philip Blazer, editor
of the West Coast Jewish
biweekly, Israel Today.
Although Jackson insisted
that none of the Jews was ac-
tually in his delegation, the Jews
insisted they were instrumental
in organizing the trip and had
close ties with Jackson for years.
"There is a real feeling of
discomfort now in relations with
Jackson where there wasn't
before," Blazer said.
THE RIFT has since grown in
significance with Jackson's
meetings with King Hussein in
Jordan and with growing
evidence that Jackson never
really wanted to meet with
leaders of Israel to learn
something, only to preach to
them, anymore than he wanted to
meet with leaders of the Christian
community in Lebanon.
Jackson's report Tuesday that
he would bring back the draft of a
new resolution on the
Palestinians from PLO Chief
Yasir Arafat, ostensibly to
President Carter, softened earlier
reports that Arafat had flatly
told Jackson that he would never
give up his campaign against
Israel.
Speculation is rife here that th.
latest Arafat pronouncement t<>
Jackson came as a consequence
of Jackson's meeting with
President Sadat in Cairo, when'
Sadat declared that the PLO
ought to stop its terrorist attacks
against Israel and that there was.
in his view, "no hurry" to bring
the Palestinians into the current
autonomy talks between Egypt
and Israel.
RAYMOND MALLEL, of Los
Angeles, an executive member of
the World Sephardi Federation,
said he left the Jackson group
because the Black leader "has no
interest whatever in the Mideast
situation, but solely in exploiting
it to advance his own political
career in the United States." The
other three Jews were not im

Kay Jacobs, president of the

Women's Division, haa an-
nounced the appointment of
Rhoda Karpay as chairman of the
Women's Division's Presidents
Round Table.
The Presidents Round Table is
composed of presidents from
Jewish women's organizations in
the Tampa area. It serves as a
two-way vehicle for com-
munication and for exchange of
information. Whereas, the
Presidents Round Table unites to
strengthen commitment to the
total Jewish community, each
organization retains its in-
dividual characteristics.
Rhoda Karpay, a past
president of the Federation
Women's Division, is enthusi-
astically looking forward to the
participation of each organization
fully discussing its ongoing
projects and future goals
"Hopefully, letting the right
hand know what the left-hand is
doing will avoid wasteful
duplication of efforts and also
point out concerns that deserve
attention," Rhoda stated.
The opening meeting of the
Women President's Round Table
is scheduled for Oct. 25 at the
Palma Ceia Country Club.

they knew nothing except for
what they heard on the "Voice of

The Meaning of Sukkot
Sukkot begins with prayer services Friday
evening. The services usher in the first two days of
the holiday known as the Feast of the Tabernacles,
which will be observed this weekend.
The holiday attracts our attention to the glory
and the grandeur of nature's riches. The traditional
Sukkah evokes the temporary booths, com-
memorating the way the ancient Israelites lived
during their wanderings in the desert on their
journey back to Canaan following their centuries of
bondage in Egypt.
The walls of the Sukkah are traditionally
decorated with trees and the fruits of the season,
symbolizing a fruitful return out of an oppressive
past marked by slavery.
Symbols of the Holiday
Other central symbols of the holiday include the
lulav, which is held in the right hand together with a
variety of other fauna of the earth: three hadasim
and two arauot. The etrog is held in the left hand.
These fulfill the injunction that Jews should hold
arba'ah minim on the first day of Sukkot.
Following these opening days of the holiday, are
the intervening days of Choi Hamoed Sukkot which
next Friday {Oct. 12) launch Hoshanah Rabbah, with
the concluding Simhat Torah on Sunday, Oct. 14,
bringing the High Holy Day season to a close.
Sukkot is a joyous launching into the New Year
from the rigors of Yom Kippur, perhaps the most
solemn of the Days of Awe. The sense of freedom it
heralds, the hope for a happy New Year it evokes in
its fruitful effulgence help us to anticipate an op-
timistic future.
Public Opinion Works
The pressure of world public opinion does work.
This has been proven time and time again in the case
of Jewish activists and other dissidents in the Soviet
Union. It was proven most recently by the decision of
the Argentine government to release Jacobo Timer-
man, the former editor of La Opinion, after holding
him for 29 months without legitimate charges. He is
now in Israel.
Timerman, like many other Argentinians, was
first arrested when a group of men forced their way
into his Buenos Aires apartment and abducted him.
This happened in April, 1977, and he was taken to
various prisons before a military court in October,
1977, said the army junta had no charges on which to
hold him.
But he was held under house arrest despite a
ruling by the Argentine Supreme Court in July, 1978,
that his arrest was illegal. He was finally released
eight days after the Supreme Court said the military
junta has no grounds on which to hold him.
Timerman's release, however, cannot be taken
as a sudden decision by the ruling military junta in
Argentina to begin respecting the law and human
rights. It came after a concerted world effort to
arouse public support for the Jewish journalist. The
American Jewish Committee and the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith played a major
part in the campaign. So did the U.S. State Depart-
ment which repeatedly asked for his release.
Argentina found that its standing in the inter-
national community and especially in the U.S.
suffered because of the Timerman case, and it finally
bowed to this international pressure. But as in the
Soviet Union and under other dictatorships, inter-
national pressure focuses on those well-known
abroad, such as Timerman. There are thousands of
Argentinians, including some 1,200 Jews, still in
prison or among the so-called "disappeared."

Even Sadat is Cool to PLO
Did President Carter get the
message?
It was sent by President Sadat
of Egypt and Prime Minister
Begin of Israel. It was brief,
pohte and very much to the
point: we are making progress
towards a settlement; please do
not complicate matters by inter-
vening at this stage or by trying
to rush us. Above all, don't try to
shove the Palestine Liberation
Organization down our throats. .
Ambassador Robert S.
Strauss, who flew out to the
Middle East to find out just what
had happened at the Sadat-Begin
meeting in Haifa, was given the
message. After listening to
Sadat, he agreed that the Egyp
Lian- Israeli talks should be
allowed to continue without
attempts at imposing deadlines.
After listening to Begin, he
offered assurances that the
United States was not going to
try to force Israel and Egypt to
accept the PLO as a negotiating
partner.
IT IS to be hoped that the
envoy was able to explain these
developments to President Carter
convincingly because the
President has been pressing hard
(or agreements on the future of
the West Bank presumably
because Saudi Arabia, with the
implicit threat of closing the oil
valve, has set a time frame within
which it expects him to produce
Israeli compliance with Arab
demands.
The recent flurry of activity
generated from Washington to
bring the PLO into the picture of
the West Bank future was un-
doubtedly part of the Adminis-
tration effort to prove to the
Saudi Arabians that Washington
was responsive to their pressure.
The meetings held by Am-
bassadors Young and Wolf with
PIX) representatives were not
ordered by the State Department
which has technically observed
the American pledge to Israel not
to negotiate with the PLO until
the PLO accepts Security Council
destitution 242 and recognizes
the existence of Israel. They
were, however, in line with the
current trend of Administration
thinking and policy that, sooner
or later, the PLO will have to be a
partner in the talks whether
Israel likes it or not.
THERE IS A strong attempt
to blur the difference between
Palestinian Arabs living on the
West Bank (with whom Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan has been
having informal talks for years)
and the PLO organization. The
press, here and abroad, has
helped to create the impression
that Israel, by refusing to deal
with the PLO, is refusing to
negotiate with the West Bank
Arabs.
Even Britain's liberal Man-
chester Guardian argues that
there can be no solution without
discussions, and the assembled
company must include the PLO.
American advocacy of the PLO
sits little better with Sadat than
with Begin and both men must be
permitted to retain a little doubt
over StrauM' reiteration that the
United States was not trying to
force (he PLO issue.
SADAT, whom the PLO
regards as an enemy on its assas-
sination list, made it clear to
Strauss that this was no time for
new American peace initiatives
and that the cause of peace would
best be served at this time if
America accepted the role of
silent partner and kept out of the
way. StrauM apparently ac-
cepted this view and said as
much in Jerusalem although he
did indicate that he intended,
later this year, to take part in the
discussions of the "exceedingly
contentious issues," notably
West Bank autonomy.
Bob Strauss apparently has a
clear understanding of the
situation but President Carter
operates on his own wave-length
and there is always the danger
that he will come up with or
accept new ideas and new
directions that can affect the
talks now going on.
Not yet forgotten is his
egregious blunder, after the long
and urduous efforts to reduce
Soviet influence in the Middle
East, in proposing to move the
Palestine problem to the forum of
a Geneva conference of which the
Soviet Union would be co-chair-
man and all the Arab states par-
ticipants. We were rescued from
thai diplomatic diasaster when
.secret Israeli-Egyptian nego-
tiations, through various inter-
mediaries bore fruit in the Begin
invitation to Sadat and Sadat's
courageous acceptance and visit
id Jerusalem. Out of that visit
ultimately emerged and here
(ull credit must be given to
Jimmy Carter the Camp
David accords.
UNDER ONE phase of these
accords, Israel is returning the
Sinai Deninsula in stages to
Kgyplian rule. One of the
enabling conditions was that the
United National Emergency
Puree would serve as a buffer be-
tween the Israeli and Egyptian
lines. The accords provided that

ukkoth-The Season of Thanksgiving, Rejoicing
8 RABBI YAKOV WERDE
Chabad House, USF
"And you shall rejoice in your
-livals" (Vayikra 23). The
krah establishes the Holiday of
Lkoth as days of thanksgiving
L rejoicing the days
plicated to the expression of
Cer joy and exaltation.
I Following so closely the
lesome days of repentance and
tnement, the solemn High
ilidays of Rosh Hashanah and
hm Kippur, the observance of
Festival of Sukkoth and its
piny colorful Mitzvos (good
.(is) shows, that immediately
jit being granted a good year
[being inscribed, by God, in the
iok of Life we engage busily
the fulfillment of His com-
Bndmt'nts and we usher in a
riod of festivity, truly "a
jis.m of rejoicing" when we
press our thanksgiving and
historically, Sukkoth com-
kmorates the booths or huts
lien our forefathers built
[ring their sojourn in the desert
las the Torah relates, (Vayikra
in Sukkahs you shall dwell
yen days ... In order that your
nerations shall know that I
iised the children of Israel to
Lell in Sukkahs (booths) when I
bught them forth from the land
(Egypt."
Clouds of Glory
Kv are also reminded by the
Utah of the protective "clouds
[glory" which surrounded the
vish people during their
ndering for 40 years in the
ert on their way to the
Dmised Land.
UthouKh the exodus from
nd;w and related miracles is
rinly commemorated during
Holiday of Passover, never -
llMBj we build the Sukkah in
fall to show that it is not
Inly for seasonal convenience
1 in the springtime that we
Ive into a hut, but specifically
fecal] and proclaim the miracle
(iod and His divine
bvidence.
[The clouds of glory may have
the Jewish people upon
ering the Land of Israel, but
protection of the Almighty
yer leaves us.
Ingathering Of
The Harvest
[The Holiday of Sukkoth also
bmes at the end of the harvest
Jason, when the agricultural
Vertones are strongly evident,
bd the spirit of deepfelt thanks-
(ving permeates the air.
l"When you gather in from
bur granaries and winepresses"
9eut. 16). The produce of the
bids, the orchards and vine-
Ms are gathered into the
anaries, silos and storehouses,
this season of ingathering,
wn the sweat and toil of many
Dnths' work is amply rewarded
|th the bountiful fruits of the
rth, man might wax fat and
get God, "The power of my
Mid wrought me all this wealth
fr1"- H). Lest we become
pogant in all the good which
J has bestowed upon us, we go
of our homes and live a
iple, down to earth existence,
aving the elements and feeling
^se to God, knowing that he is
source of good and the giver

(in strength and hope from the
Jkkah, remembering that God
Stained the Jewish people in
'desert for 40 years.
In AU Your Ways
You Should Know Him
f or seven days the Jew moves
his activities from hia home
the Sukkah, expressing
tachon (trust) in the Almighty,
bt even in this frail booth, God
will protect him and make him
prosper. In this way we fulfill a
unique Mitzva whereas every
Mitzva which a person performs
entails the use of a limb or organ
of the body, i.e., the mouth and
stomach eat kosher, the arm and
head don Tefillin, the mind
studies Torah, the heart feels the
love of a fellow Jew.
The Mitzva of Sukkoth, how-
ever, encompasses the person
in his entirety every limb and
cell of the person in the Sukkah is
fulfilling a Mitzva and every limb
and cell is in a Mitzva, com-
pletely submerged, surrounded
and encompassed.
Not only is the body in its
entirety sanctified because it is in
the Mitzva, but also every ac-
tivity which the person does in
the Sukkah becomes part of the
fulfillment of the Mitzva. Thus,
when one eats in the Sukkah, the
eating becomes a Mitzva, and
when one sleeps, walks, talks,
etc., all these aspects of simple
human activity assume the
importance of becoming Mitzvas
because they are done in the
Sukkah.
That great idealistic aphorism
of King Solomon (Prov. 3.6)
"Bechol Derochecho Doehu"
"In all your ways you shall know
him," suddenly becomes realistic
and immediate for in every
simple physical act he is coming
closer to God and Godliness.
The Four Kinds
Into this picturesque setting of
plenty and humility, bounty and
thanksgiving, God tells us to
bring the four kinds again
IVayihra 23)."And you shall take
you on the first day, the fruit of
the tree Hadar' and branches of
the palm trees, and a bough of
the tree Avos' and willows of the
brook, and you shall rejoice
before the Lord your God seven
days."
Representing the world of
flora, we gather these plans
together to express our attach-
ment to God and His Laws. The
"Esrog" or citron, fruit of the
tree "Hadar," has a good taste
and fragrant odor. The Lulav is a
branch of the date palms, whose
fruit is delicious but has no
noticeable odor. The myrtle,
branch of the tree "Avos" has a
wonderful fragrance but no
special taste. The willow of the
brook lacks taste and aroma. All
of the four kinds should be
perfect and complete in all
aspects color, texture, size and
shape. In performing the Mitzva,
we bind together the Lulov
(palm), Hadas (myrtle) and
Arovo (willow) and hold them
close together with the Esrog.
Saying the Blessing, we wave
this bouquet in all directions sig-
nifying God's omnipresence and
fulfilling His wishes.
Coming soon after the days of
Judgment, we triumphantly
carry our bouquet of fruit and
plants to show that we were vic-
torious in Judgment before God.
In discussing this aspect of
Sukkoth, the Medrash relates,
"This is likened to two men who
come before a judge and we do
not know who has been vin-
dicated. When one leaves
carrying a "scepter" in his hands,
we know that he has been judged
righteous. So too, Israel and the
nations stand before God's judg-
ment on Rosh Hashanah, when
Jews go out on Sukkoth carrying
a "scepter" Lulov and Esrog,
we know that Israel has pre-
vailed." (Vayikra Raba 30)
Searching for a specific reason
for this Mitzva we find that the
Torah makes no mention of a
reason for the four kinds. Yet,
symbolically it teaches us an
important lesson in unity and
brotherhood, for the Medrash
explains the significance of the
four kinds in the following way:
"Just as the Esrog combines
both delicious taste and fragrant
aroma, so too are there Jews who
are both learned in Torah and are
observant of Mitzvos. Just as the
Lulov (date) is good tasting, but
has no fragrance, so too are there
among Israel, people who are
steeped in Torah but fail to put
stress on good deeds. Just as the
myrtle has no taste, but emits a
wonderful fragrance, so too are
there Jews who although
unlearned are filled with good
deeds. And just as the willow
lacks taste and fragrance, so too
are other Jews unlearned in
Torah and void in Mitzvos.
Says the Almighty: "Let them
all be bound together in one sheaf
and atone for one another."
I Vayikra Raba.W
Only when all these Jews are
brought together and held tightly
as one, can we rejoice before God
Only in such unity can we serve
God, and only then can Jews
truly rejoice. When the learned
and observant Jew finds his place
next to the ignorant, non-
observant, then can we truly
serve God with the unity and
purity of the heart.

hardly knew Blazer.
Mallei's explicit interest in the
visit was to help arrange a
meeting between Jackson and
representatives of the World
Organization of Jews from Arab
Countries "in order that he would
hear and meet those expelled by
Arab countries and see how
Israel has rehabilitated so many
refugees despite the state of siege
it was in."
HOWEVER. Mallei claimed,
despite the fact that the meeting
with WOJAC representatives
had already been set, Jackson did
not want to meet them here.
Mallei attributed this to "pure
lack of interest in Jewish suf-
fering." Jackson denied this
claim. "That is simply not true."
he said.
Mordechai Ben Porat, WOJAC
chairman, said in reaction to
Jackson's cancellation of the
meeting: "It is obvious that
Jackson is not interested in Jews
from Arab countries, and that he
is insensitive to their suffering.
He is riding the PLO bandwagon,
hopes it would take him to a
political career, and doesn't care
if he runs Jews down in the
process." Yosef Tekoah,
president of Ben Gurion
University of the Negev, had a
similar reaction when Jackson
also cancelled a visit to the
Beersheba school.
EVEN DURING a visit to Yad

troversial remark: "Such a

West Germany is advocating
that the Palestinians should be
granted self-determination, but
that any representation should
have the consent of both the
Arabs and the Israelis. At this
moment, the Germans are not in
favor of mentioning the PLO.
HOLLAND, as was expected,
favors a general statement about
the necessity for Middle East
peace without any reference to
the PLO. This is a formula
nearest to the wishes of the
Israelis.
It is the reported British shift
which has caused most concern.
It is reliably reported that
Britain now favors what is called
"middle-of- the-road" language
calling for Palestinian represen-
tatives, "including the PLO," to
join the talks.
The Foreign Office refused to
comment on this particular
report, and insisted that British
policy has not changed since the
publication of an EEC statement
on June 18 and a subsequent one
during the Security Council
debate on Aug. 24.

The Board of Deputies, in a

It is learned that EEC officials

the Irish Foreign Minister, can
deliver it in the name of the Nine

AT LEAST a half million
Israelis vacationed abroad during
the past summer, each allowed to
take $3,000 in foreign currency.
New car sales soared to an all-
time peak despite astronomical
prices and the highways are
jammed. Israel has yet to in-
troduce color television;
nevertheless. 110.000 color TV
sets were sold in recent months.
Every Israeli fit to work has a
job or can have one and the labor
market is seeking at least 30.000
more workers. In addition to
Israelis, the country provides
regular employment for some
70.000 Arabs from the occupied
territories who get their jobs
legally through the labor ex-
changes and an estimated 20.000
more who circumvent the legal
channels. Several thousand
Lebanese from south Lebanon
commute to jobs in Israel daily.
But this rosy picture conceals a
grim reality Israel this year was
caught in the worst inflationary
spiral in its history. The inflation
rate is expected to exceed 80
percent by the end of the year,
probably the highest in the
world, and at the moment there
seems to be no way to control it.
INFLATION IS fueled by
feverish consumerism Israelis do
not save their money because it
shrinks rapidly in value. Those
who do save invest in cost-of-
living index related government
bonds which only adds to the
internal debt.
But Israelis are buying
everything available. They are
spending their money mainly on
expensive durable goods such as
cars, refrigerators and TV sets at
ever higher prices. As demand
increases, manufacturers hire
more workers and are ready to
pay higher wages. But the more
Israelis consume, the less there is
to export.
Exports increased at the
meager rate of three precent this
year and the country may face a
%4 billion balance of payments
defkit. Its cumulative foreign
debt now stands at about $17
billion. At the current rate, it
will reach the danger point of $25
billion in four years at which time
the government will experience
great difficulties in getting
foreign credit.
FIGHTING INFLATION is
not an easy task for a govern-
ment which depends on coalition
partners to muster a majority in
parliament. When the Likud
government came to power two
years ago. the controversial
American economist. Milton
Friedman, was invited here to
offer suggestions. Friedman's
conservative philosophy and
especially his view that a degree
of unemployment is necessary to
reduce inflation, raised an outcry
in labor circles.
The Likud government cannot
permit itself to create unem-
ployment for that would surely
lead to its downfall. So the
government has taken only half-
way measures against inflation
with very little success. It has
been unable to cut down on its
own expenditures primarily
because defense needs swallowed
a third of the present IL 320
billion budget. And because of
inflation, the budget will have to
be increased by about IL 70
billion.
Connected to the inflationary
spiral is the housing problem.
Housing construction, a basic
branch of the economy is slowing
down. In the last two years, the
price of an apartment has tripled,
the price of land went sky-high
and construction starts have
diminished. Israel's construction
industry is not highly
mechanized
BUILDING IS time con-
suming and more costly that in
other countries. A small two-
room flat in Tel Aviv. Jerusalem
or Haifa costs over IL 1 million
and there are no apartments for
rent at reasonable prices.
This situation carries the
lernei of social unrest as newlv
Moreover, it will take several
years of peace before trade
relations between the two
countries will develop to a
point where it will be a
significant factor in their
economies. Summing up,
Israel's economic targets for
the coming year are to put a
brake on inflation; close the
balance of payments gap; and
step up housing construction.
Mainly, the dangers of social
unrest and increased
polarization between the rich
and the poor must be avoided.
married couples find it impossible

emigration among Israelis
yordim. In recent months the
emigration rate was 2,000 per
month and it is not likely to be
stemmed unless the price of
housing can be brought down to
affordable levels.
Israel has just informed the
United States that its budgetary
defkit for the fiscal year
beginning Oct. 1. 1980 will
amount to about S3.4 billion. But
hopes are not high that the U.S.
will cover that deficit with
grants, considering the recession
and inflation in America. Some
American aid will, of course, be
forthcoming. On the other hand,
the U.S. will indirectly feed
Israel's inflation by pouring
money into the new airfields to be
built in the Negev. replacing
those in Sinai.
BECAUSE OF that danger,
the entire project will be a closed
venture. But no one will be able
to prevent the foreign workers
from spending their money in
Israel nor will the American
contractors deny themselves

are non-Orthodox. It is marked in
varied ways, including a central
celebration encompassing the
whole population. For this a large
central building such as the
Dining Hall is converted into an
enormous Sukkah. beautifully
and richly decorated with
greenery, fruit including the
seven species, and art work.
Every children's house has its
own Sukkah. where the children
celebrate the Festival and eat and
make merry.
IN ADDITION to the striking
symbolism of the Sukkah.
Sukkot also has the "four
species." These consist of a date
palm branch, two branches of
willow, three branches of myrtle,
and a single "Etrog" or citron.
While we used to buy sets of the
"four species" in the United
States, in Israel they are far more
specialized. Each of the "four
species" is sold separately by a
different vendor.
This means running from one
to the other to assemble the full
"kit." It is not surprising that all
the fruit markets of the country
become scenes of unimaginable
turmoil as the holiday ap-
proaches (Incidentally, only in
the Mahane Yehuda market have
I seen Etrogim sold by the
kilogram the day after the
holiday is over a decrease in
price of about 95 per cent.
Sukkot is indeed the festival of
symbols, as any casual visitor to
Israel will see the symbol of
the Sukkah which he will see
many thousands of times and the
symbol of the "four species" as
Jews stride determinedly to their
festival prayers.
Israeli consumers.
Still, Israel's economic picture
is not entirely bleak. Export
industries have made enormous
strides. Only last year $550
million worth of Israeli goods
that were the result of local
research and development were
sold abroad. The entire industrial
export was $3.5 billion and there
was a significant export of
military hardware such as the
Gabriel missile and the Kfir jet
interceptor. Industry is shifting

systems and there is a continuous

New Deputy Envoy
Strengthens U.S. Hand
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Carter's nomination of
William J. vanden Heuvel as
deputy U.S. Ambassador to the
United Nations, is seen as
strengthening the State
Department's approaches in that
organization formally and in-
formally.
The State Department had
soured on former Ambassador
Andrew Young because of his
freewheeling tactics that
culminated in his resignation last
month when he misled and
embarrassed the Department on
his meeting with the Palestine
Liberation Organization observer
at the UN
NEITHER Donald McHenry,
who succeeded Young as the
Ambassador to the UN. nor
vanden Heuvel are expected to go
beyond State Department
guidance on issues. However,
vanden Heuvel s record appears
io indicate his personal un-
derstanding of Israel's problems.
The U.S. Mission in New York
includes five members with the
rank of Ambassador. McHenry
was number three in the Mission
under Young, behind deputy
James Leonard until last spring
when Leonard was named deputrl
to Special Mideast Ambas
Robert Strauss.
Leonard, who had been
volved in the United Ni
Association of the U.S. took i

Hebrew Prophets
Skilled in Medicine
BY RABBI THEODORE BROD
(Second in a series on the Jewish Physician!
"The Lord will take away from thee all sickness, and be will
put none of the evil diseases which thou knowest upon thee."
(Deut. 8:13)
The ancient Egyptians (1,700 BCE) were familiar with a large
number of drugs: opium, strychnia, squill, etc. A large number
of prescriptions have been found mentioning the above drugs.
Moses, our teacher, received his education in the royal house of
Pharaoh and no doubt in all of the "art of healing" known in his
lifetime.
In view of the advanced culture of medical knowledge among
the Egyptians, it is quite probable that the Hebrew tribe of Levy
may have accumulated much of this knowledge. The tribe of
Levy was not enslaved by the Egyptians.
IN THE LAWS found in Leviticus portion of the Torah
regarding signs of leprosy there are three major treatments
mentioned. 1. Careful differentiation, 2. Isolation, and 3.
Disinfection. These three methods are still in use by physicians
today.
The term Maggefah refers to plague, epidemics in general. A
Bubonic plague mentions rats, which are known to be carriers of
this disease. (I-Samuel-5)
The Hebrew prophets were also known to be skilled in medical
knowledge. The prophet Isaiah cured King Hezekiah of a
glandular affliction by the application of a cataplasm of figs (2-
Kings, 20.-7)." And Isaiah said, 'Fetch a lump of figs.' And they
fetched and laid it on the inflammation and he recovered."
The prophet Ezekiel describes the treatment of fractures.
"The word of the Lord came to me saying, 'Son of man, the arm
of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, have I broken, and to, it shall not be
bound up to apply remedies, to put on a bandage, to bind it up,
to make it strong that it may grasp the sword;" (Ezekiel 90:21).
THE PERIOD following the prophets, Malachi being the last
who lived 400 BCE, was a time of political upheaval, religious
persecutions and wars. The rabbis (teachers and scholars) took
the place of the prophets, communicating their knowledge
orally. The priesthood degenerated, there arose a number of
sects, among which the Essence assumed a somewhat prominent
role. The name of this sect may have been derived from Asyim,
"Healers." They studied and collected herbs and roots for
healing.
The Talmudk Era (300 BCE to 500 BCE) shows a great
respect for the sanctity of human life and the importance of
health. Even the sanctity of the Sabbath could be profaned in
the event of sickness. Pikuach Nefeah (saving of life) took
precedence over the entire Torah (Yoma 85a Taanit Hat
The Talmud states, "Whoever is in pain, let him go to the
physician for he is the instrument of God. The disease and its
cure lay in His hands.
Ben Sira, who belonged to the generation which had come
under Hellenistic influence after the conquest of Allexander the
Great, writes:
'HONOR A physician before need of him. Him also hat God
apportioned. From God a physician getteth wisdom God
bringeth out medicines from the earth; Let no prudent man
refuse them. He gave man understanding. By this doth the
physician assuage pain. And likewise the apothecary make a
confection.' (The wisdom of Ben Sira 43-44)
The Talmud states that the physician has been granted
permission by God to treat disease.
"R. Iamael and R. Akiba mett a sick man 'Masters,' said he,
'tell me bow can I be cured?' 'Do thus.' they answered, 'and you
will be cured.' Then another asked, 'Who has inflicted the illness
upon this poor man?' and they answered: "The Holy One,
blessed be he!' And the man said, 'You interfered with God's
will. He has punished and you wish to heal! Are you not acting
contrary to God's will? What kind of work do you do? asked the
rabbis. '1 am a farmer.' 'Who created the vineyard (farm)?' they
asked. "The Holy One, blessed be his name.' Then said the sages
to him, 'You interfered in this vineyard which is not yours? He
created it and you cut its fruit? But it is so!' As for man, his
days are as grass.' (Psalm 103:15). Just as the vine without your
work will not grow fruit but will die, so it is with human body.
Man requires herbs and medicine, the physician is the farmer,
the tiller of humanity."
"Blessed art thou, O, Lord, who healeth all and worketh
wonders."
Chag Sumaeach and Gezund Yuhr.

sity; Dr. Israel Katz, Israeli Minister of Labor and Social Affairs.
Headlines
U.S. Labor, Israel in Joint Projects
The United States Labor Department will
collaborate with Israel in three major areas, an-
nounced U.S. Secretary of Labor Ray Marshall at
a seminar of Israeli labor experts at Tel Aviv
University. Areas of joint work will include
employment training activity to seek solutions
for unemployment problems, occupational safety
and health, and labor-management relations.
The Secretary of Labor, who was a professor at
the University of Texas and a Werthein Fellow of
Harvard University, stressed the importance of
the United States and Israel learning from one
another.
The American Jewish Congress Na ional
Women's Division has rejected arguments by an
Orthodox Jewish leader that passage of the Equal
Rights Amendment would end the right to
privacy, threaten religious liberty and lower
moral standards.
Declaring that ERA will "assure full Con-
stitutional recognition of the right of men and
women to be treated as individuals before the
law," Leona Chanin, president of the Congress'
National Women's Division, took issue with
"reservations" about ERA expressed in a recent
article by Rabbi Gilbert Klaperman of the Rab-
binical Council of America.
Yehuda Blum, permanent representative of
Israel to the United Nations, has predicted that
the UN's 34th General Assembly would be "used
by the Arab rejectionist states and their sup-
porters as a battleground against the Israel-
Egypt Peace Treaty and the Camp David
Accords."
Blum spoke at a luncheon for the press at the
national headquarters of the American Jewish
Committee.
The "Baghdad belligerents" would do every-
thing in their power, he said, to "distract the rep-
resentatives of the international community from
the major problems facing the world, in order to
try to sabotage the ongoing peace process in the
Middle East. The latest expression of their in-
tentions," he continued, "is to be found in the
final document pushed through at the Non-
Aligned Summit at Havana."
The commander of Israel's army, Gen. Raphael
Eytan, declared at a press conference that "the
Arab countries are quite capable of an attack
upon Israel even without the participation of the
Egyptians. However, our defense forces have
taken this into account." Eytan further stated
that it is serious error to believe that the Arab
armies are inferior to Israel's because they
possess Soviet weapons. The Soviet weapons, he
added, are not only the equal of American and
European equipment, but in some respects even
superior. And this holds true, he said, for warfare
on land, at sea, and in the air.
The General further said that in the last few
years the Arab countries have substantially aug-
mented their war arsenals; but this did not give
him great concern because the fighting quality of
their armies was still below that of the Israeli
Defense Forces.
The American Jewish Committee has urged the
United States Government to broaden its
definition of "heavy crude" oil so as to make the
production of such oil commercially feasible and
thereby increase its availability to the Americna
public.
In written testimony submitted to the U.S.
Department of Energy, Harris L. Kempner Jr.,
chairman of AJC's National Committee on
Energy, also urged the U.S. to encourage the
production of refined heavy crude oil by other
non-OPEC oil-producing nations through
providing technical assistance and offering long-
term purchase agreements to those nations.
After signing the peace treaty with Israel,
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat told the African
nations to defer renewal of diplomatic relations
with Israel, according to a report that appeared in
the afternoon Hebrew daily, Ma'Ariv, quoting
reliable and well-informed sources. The news item
suggests that Sadat's behavior is based on a very
pragmatic calculation, namely that he would like
to "trade" the friendship of the African nations
for Israel for some quid-pro-quo.
Prior to the outbreak of the Yom Kippur War of
1973, Israel maintained diplomatic relations with
22 African countries. Following the war, 19 of
these countries canceled their relationship and
only three remained in diplomatic contact. At the
same time, it is well known that there are Israelis
present in 12 African lands carrying out various
work projects on an "unofficial" basis.
Don't be surprised if you ask to see a doctor at
Yeshiva University and a woman answers.
Women attending Yeshiva University have
earned more PhD's than women attending the
majority of colleges throughout the country.
According to an article in the Chronicle of Higher
Education, the university ranks among the top 25
percent of the nation's 99 leading institutions in
proportion of PhD's granted to women during the
years 1973-76.
Out of 215 doctorates issued by Yeshiva
University during that period, a total of 68, or
31.6 percent, were awarded to women. Albert
Einstein College of Medicine conferred 49 PhD's
during the same period, 11 awarded to women.
The Synagogue Council of America has
released its own report on energy conservation
and simultaneously urged Congress to speed
implementation of an effective energy program.
"There has been too much delay in effectuating
a significant fuel conservation effort," said Rabbi
Robert J. Marx, of Chicago, chairman of the
Synagogue Council's Domestic Affairs Com-
mittee. "Meanwhile, our oil reserves are being
wasted as unrestricted automobile driving has
resumed, and the public watches helplessly while
consumer prices soar and oil company profits
increase. "
Israel Ambassador to the United States
Ephraim Evron chided critics of Israel's use of
American-made war planes in its retaliatory
attacks on PLO bases inside of Lebanon in a
speech delivered at the America-Israel Banquet of
American Mizrachi Women's National Con-
vention currently held at the Sheraton Center in
New York.

1937, after another split, the
tun accepted the leadership of
i Jabotinsky.
A'hen Lankin and her first
fcband, Shmuel Katz, arrived in
Sestine in 1946, they were quite
familiar with the Irgun.
Although they came from South
Africa, they had spent the war
years in London where Shmuel
Katz was asked by Jabotinsky to
start a weekly newspaper ad-
vocating the formation of a
Jewish army to fight on the side
of the Allies. When at long last
these ardent Zionists arrived in
Eretz Yisrael, they both con-
tributed their all to the up-
building of the Jewish State.
WHILE HER husband was
accepted into the Irgun im-
mediately and eventually was
part of its High Command
Doris's lack of Hebrew
disqualified her from ad-
ministrative and propaganda
work. And, as she says, "I am
not really the bombthrowing
type."
Eventually, the Irgun came to
realize that both her very British
appearance and her British
passport could be quite valuable
to them. These allowed her access
to many places where other
Palestinians were not able to
penetrate, and thus Doris was
able to pass on valuable in-
formation where needed.
She also proved quite adept at
fund raising even under very
trying conditions. She usually
began her speeches describing
the position in Palestine, ex-
i plaining the struggle and aims of
the Irgun, and apealing for
donations. In her book. The Lady
Was a Terrorist, published in
1955, Lankin describes her ap-
pearances as a public speaker in
South Africa:
"As I am not anything like the
popular conception of a terrorist
someone who stalks around in
riding-boots carrying a sten-gun
. emphasized by contrast
by appearing before my
audiences as a well-groomed,
well-dressed young woman
straight from a finishing school
in England. I immediately
produced the right dramatic
effect. From the audience came
the inevitable stage-whisper: Is
that what the terrorists look
like?"
WHILE LANKIN liked and
respected the young men in the
Irgun, it was the women who won
I her greatest admiration.
Foremost among these were the
"forgotten men" of the un-
derground the wives. These
were women who had to run their
homes and bring up their children
on the meager salaries which
were given to all Irgun members,
irrespective of rank.

conflicting Views
\Genscher to Blame For
tonn Policy Shift-Dayan
By F. SACHSER
ondon Chronicle Syndicate
DUESSELDORF Bonn
vernment sources have
pcribed the recent talks be-
en Moshe Dayan, the Israeli
eign Minister, and West
nan leaders as "good, re-
ling and constructive," but
It is not how Dayan would
icribe them apparently,
^t a press conference at the
1 of his three-day visit, the
aeli Foreign Minister said that
| situation had not improved as
result of the talks, but had
frsened.
)AYAN indicated that he
ed his West German
|interpart, Hans-Dietrich
nscher, for the "deterior
on" in relations between
ael and West Germany
ause Genscher had introduced
| formula of self-determination
the Palestinians into the
No other Common Market
ntry had ever used this term,
said. Genscher had first
it during his recent visit to
Irpt.
[owever, Dayan emphasized
Israel continued to regard
Germany as a friendly
"try. Her policy towards
was not hostile. Chancellor
nut Schmidt was one of the
est friends the Jewish State
' Germany today.
[URING his talks with Sch-
the Chancellor had given
ession to his deep and heart-
[fnendly feelings.
elcoming Bonn's positive
towards the Israeli-
Ptian peace treaty, Dayan
that West Germany
raed it not as a separate
ement. but as a first step
Jrds a comprehensive Middle
settlement that might be
1 by other States.
tyan continued by express-
satisfaction with an
ance by the West German
emment that it had no inten-
"f establishing official
"ns with the Palestine Lib-
an Organization.
PARIS (JTA) Jewish
financier Samuel Flatto-Sharon,
a member of the Israeli Knesset,
was sentenced in absentia by a
Paris court to a five-year prison
term and a 30,000 franc (about
$7,000) fine for illicit financial
operations. About 25 accomplices
received suspended sentences.
The court stated that most of
them, including Sharon, would be
liable to several million francs in
taxes and fiscal fines owed to the
French state. The trial of Sharon,
referred to in court by his original
name, Samuel Sigevits, began
last May.
ACCORDING TO the
charges, he made illegal profits
totalling some $250 million by
creating fictitious companies
which bought and resold land
among themselves and pocketed
advantageous loans which were
not repaid. Sharon fled to Israel,
taking with him the money he
allegedly swindled.
In Jerusalem Sharon said his
attorney in Paris would file an
appeal against the right of the
French courts to try him. But he
said he would go to France
himself if a new trial is ordered
and if arrangements can be made
. with the French authorities.
MOTT*
The argument going around some Jewish
homes is: "Mott's is delicious"-or-"Mott's
are delicious." But there is never any
argument about DELICIOUS. Because
they are. Mott's captures all the
natural and sparkling taste
of the sun-ripened fruit. And
many Jewish housewives know
it. And that's why they serve
Mott's to the family.
Whether it's one of the
apple sauce varieties or
the prune products, you
just know it's the finest
because Mott's uses only
the finest quality apples
and sun-ripened prunes.
So whether it should
be Mott's 'IS', or
Mott's 'ARE'...
Mott's "are/is"
