Condemning Israel for 'Violations'
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) The
executive board of the United
Nations Educational. Scientific
and Cultural Organization has
adopted an Arab-sponsored reso-
lution condemning Israel for
alleged violations of former
UNESCO resolutions on culture
and education in the occupied
territories. The board also
decided to include this subject on
the agenda of the organization's
general conference due to take
place next year.
The United States and most
West European countries, in-
cluding France, West Germany
and Britain, voted against the
resolution, but it was earned with
a vote of 20-10 with 11 absten-
tions. Israel has observer status

TO THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OF TAMPA:
The Board of Directors of the Tampa Jewish Federation ex-
presses its shock and disgust for the horrible act which occurred
at the office of Professor Albert Gessman on the University ot
South Florida campus yesterday.
Such actions of hatred, while perpetrated upon Dr. Gessman and
other faculty members, are also directed towards our entire
Jewish population. It has offended the conscience of everyone in
the Tampa community.
Thirty-nine incidents of anti-Semitic harassment in the past two
years on the USF campus have been reported, and whUe we
express our confidence in and willingness to allow the law en-
forcement agencies to bring to justice thoee responsible, we as*
the University to take whatever immediate steps are necessary
to halt these senseless acts.
We all want Dr. Gessman to know we are with him and consider
that each of us has been the victim of these vile acts.
We stand together ... we are one!

the Israeli authorities for their
continual violations of the reso-
lutions and decisions of the
general conference and the
executive board." It also raps
Israel for alleged "infringements
of the recognized immunities and
privileges of UNESCO." a
reference to Israel's decision to
boycott the UNESCO mission
sent to investigate conditions in
East Jerusalem.
The Israeli delegate,
Ambassador Yael Vered, told the
board that education in the
Israeli administered territories
"has made huge progress" since
1967, that the number of schools,
scholars, equipment and students
"has increased by close to 40
percent."
The Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization representative, who
also enjoys observer status,
described alleged Israeli
violations and claimed that Israel
"is trying to turn the Palestinian
Arabs under Israeli rule into
second-class citizens."
TORONTO (JTA) -
Canadian Jews were angered
recently when the British actor
Peter Ustinov switched from the
role of entertainer to polemicist
to denounce Prime Minister
Menachem Begin of Israel as a
former terrorist and took issue
with Israeli foreign policy in
general.
The incident occurred at the
annual conference of the
Canadian Institute of Chartered
Accountants at the Harbour
Castle Hotel here where Ustinov
had been invited to entertain.
THE ACCOUNT of what
transpired was obtained by
reporter Susan Lazarus of the
Canadian Jewish News from
Morty Zafran and Boris Levine,
two of the approximately 50
Jewish accountants among the
2,000 attending the convention.
"He spoke for about 45 minutes,
says Zafran, giving a somewhat
amusing yet serious discourse on
the state of the world," Lazarus
wrote.
"Midway through the talks,
the actor lapsed into an indict-
ment of Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin. Israeli policy toward
the PLO and spoke regretfully of.
the ouster of United Nations
Ambassador Andrew Young."
Quoting Zafran, Lazarus
reported that Ustinov referred to
"some politicians who are actors
and spoke of Menachem Begin
and Henry Kissinger, who
theatrically accepted the Nobel
Peace Prize without even
deserving it."
USTINOV said, according to
Zafran, "What right had Begin to
accept a peace award when he is
no more than a former terrorist
who orchestrated the bombing of
the King David Hotel during the
1948 War of Independence?"
Ustinov also referred to
Palestine Liberation
Organization chief Yasir Arafat
as a statesman who will have to
be dealt with as a legitimate
leader and questioned Israel's
historical Jewish claim to the
West Bank, Lazarus reported.
Zafran said that when he later
confronted Ustinov, the actor
"denied being either anti-Israel
or anti-Semitic and said he was
just using Israel as an example of
the cruelty of men and leaders."

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa __
Friday, November 2
The Time to Speak Out Is Now
Overt anti-Semitic acts are back again, un-
fortunately, it is not new. It's even a repetitious fact
that after 39 anti-Semitic acts on the campus of the
University of South Florida, not one person has been
held responsible for even one act!
While the act itself is abhorrent, we're almost as
equally appalled that no law enforcement agency has
yet been able to apprehend one person out of 39
separate incidents covering two years.
The Tampa Jewish Federation has issued its
statement. The Federation's Community Relations
Committee is involved and represents the local
Jewish community interests in this matter. The CRC
has been in contact with the Anti-Defamation
League. These groups work closely together.
Meanwhile, we can send our letters to the
university, to the daily press and to The Jewish
Floridian. As The Tampa Times said and we concur,
'What happened at USF is no joke." The time to
speak out is NOW!
When you are silent, you give quiet approval.
Time to Put an End
To Actions of Hatred
[Editorial reprinted with permission of "The
Tampa Times.")
HOW LONG, O LORD?
How long will we have to share this earth with
men whose small minds are filled to overflowing with
hatred?
How long will we have to put up with those
whose idea of fun is painting swastikas and anti-
Jewish slogans all over the walls of a Jewish
professor's office.
And how long will the spirit of Adolf Hitler
walk among us?
After all, it was in that spirit that some
unknown punks invaded the office of Albert
Gessman, a professor at the University of South
Florida, this past weekend. When Gessman arrived
at the university Monday morning, he found the
walls of his office, his desk and his carpet covered
with spray painted black swastikas.
There also was a generous helping of slogans
such as "Jew die," and "Sons of Hitler." Books were
defaced, as was a plaque awarded to Gessman for
outstanding teaching.
Unfortunately, this is not the first instance of
harassment of Jewish professors at USF. Three other
members of the school's faculty have received
threatening telephone calls, and swastikas have
appeared on campus from time to time.
All people of intelligence would agree that the
people who do such things are deranged. But it is not
enough to say that this is the work of fools and let it
pass.
Members of the Tampa community must let it
be known that we will not tolerate this unthinking
and dangerous racism. We urge you to write letters
to the editor of local newspapers expressing your
indignation over the hatred at USF; letters to
Professor Gessman, telling of your disgust at the
behavior of the vandals who damaged his office;
letters to law enforcement authorities, assuring your
support of their crime prevention and apprehension
efforts.
We also hope to hear area churches and civic
organizations openly denouncing this show of
stupidity and blindness at USF. Furthermore,
campus police ought to invite county authorities to
come in and help them to apprehend and prosecute
the people responsible for this continuing series of
vile acts.
What happened at USF is no joke.
Especially for Albert Gessman, who suffered
persecution under the Nazis in Europe, and who lost
relatives to Hitler's death camps, their only crime
being that they were Jewish.
This type of vandalism has to be stopped and
The Politics of Art Expression
THOSE WHO justify their
worahipping at the aoily feet of
the State Department's cultural
exchange program with the
Soviet Union by arguing that art
has nothing to do with politics
simply don't know a blessed
thing about history.
When the great Caesar decided
to prove to the world that Rman
civilization was as accomplished
as the Greek, he commissioned
Publius Virgilius Maro to write a
work of literature that would
rival the beat that the Greeks had
ever achieved.
Virgil, as he is known to us
today, tried; decades later, he
came up with the Aeneid, essen-
Mindlin
tiallv an extension of Homer's
grand epice Iliad and Odyssey.
I My "tried" because Virgil
didn't think he had succeeded
and was probably right in his
artistic judgment, and in
political and cultural jut
too.
IN FACT, so depressed wasi
over the vast enterprise imp
upon him by Caesar, so cer

THIS MAY be a far cry fr

But Marcuse, though
malevolent Marxism may offen

Aaron David Rosenbaum, who
will speak at Temple Schaarai
Zedek Sunday morning, at 9:30,
is director of research of the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC) and a
contributing editor of Near East
Report.
AIPAC is the only registered
lobbying group which works on
behalf of legislation and other
congressional action affecting
Israel. It is also active in other
public action from Washington
with a view toward improving the
friendship and cooperation
between the United States and
Israel.

Murder of Brooklyn Rabbi
Forces Mayor Koch to Move
now:

Continued from Page 1
to blame for the rabbi's murder
because it had "completely
ignored" the area's need for
protection and for help to
rehabilitate its abandoned
housing.
At an impromptu news con-
ference at City Hall, Koch called
the murder "a special tragedy."
Asked about Crown Heights'
complaints of inadequate police
protection, the Mayor said every
community in New York City felt
it was not getting "its fair
share."
THE REV. Sam Heron, a
Black member ot the coalition,
said the security patrol was being
considered because the "com-
munity has got to take the law
into its own hands." Rosenfeld
said a City Hall rally would be
held "within 30-60 days."
Koch did not pledge to help
improve the area and to provide
additional police protection. He
said racially diverse communities
throughout New York City would
be asked to join the proposed
rally.
Rabbi Elye Gross, another
coalition member, said the anti-
crime effort would start with
meetings of community leaders
throughout the city. He added
that the war on crime "will in-
clude the entire five boroughs
and all ethnic groups" and that
"together we will figure out a
plan to stop crime."
THE MURDER also was
denounced by Sen. Edward
Kennedy (D., Mass.) in an

Mr. Frost, Dr. Kissinger and Lebanon
[Former Secretary of State
iry Kissinger has shot out the
l underpinnings of any claim
! Carter Administration may
^w to tell Israel how to handle
srity problems involving
I'lestine Liberation
nization bases in Lebanon.
[He did this in his angry NBC-
interview with British
nalist David Frost by his
nification of the Nixon-
singer policy of bombing
pmmunist sanctuaries in
tral Cambodia during the
|nam war. The Cambodia-
*anon comparison was not
plicitly stated in the debate but
* deadly parallel was there for
Itosee.
JVIETCONG and North
[namese forces had invaded
nbodia and occupied strategic
s there which they used for
massing of forces, stockpiling
1 supplies and staging grounds
* "tacks against American and
wth Vietnamese forces in the
F*f that the Americans would
r* violate the frontier to strike
p* at them in their sanctuaries.
, Frost repeatedly charged that
F United States had violated
pmbodian neutrality by
fmbing Cambodian territory
r". invading the country to
fMicate the sanctuaries. An
PPy Kissinger snapped back
P Cambodian neutrality "had
^ad.v !>een violated by the
nce of foreign troops."
^>y the same exercise of logic,
Israeli incursions into
anon are not a violation of
foanese neutrality because
Jy forces the PLO had
"*dy breached the country's
""lity and were using the

Lebanese 'sanctuary'' to mount
attacks on Israel.
INNOCENT Cambodians had
been killed in the American
bombings. Kissinger agreed, but
only because the U.S. command
had been assured that civilians
had evacuated the target areas.
They were not the target.
Lebanese have been killed in the
Israeli bombings and shellings,
not because the Israelis con-
sidered them targets, but because
the PLO deliberately uses
Lebanese villages by placing its
bases in their midst or in refugee
camps so that they cannot be
attacked without the helpless
village or camp suffering.
Cambodia itself did not have
the strength to oust the Viet-
namese invaders, nor can the
Lebanese expel the PLO It was
the PLO. in concert with leftist
Moslems, which overthrew the
legitimate ruler of Cambodia,
in 1975. Prince Sihanouk, the
legitimate ruler of Cambodia,
according to Kissinger, secretly
welcomed the American attacks
on the Vietnamese sanctuaries in
his country.
But there is only a puppet
government in Beirut, its strings
pulled by President Assad of
Syria, and no one to speak for the
Ubanese. The puppet govern-
ment protests the Israeli in-
cursions and bombing, but. lute
Sihanouk, it is helpless to
establish order in its own
territory and curb the PL.U.
IT IS ironic that the British
government which, in Security
Council debates, has adopted
such a superior, moral tone in
criticizing the Israeli policy on
Lebanon, wants to use the same
tactics to crush the Provisional
Irish Republican Army and its
terrorism in Northern Ireland
and has been pressing the
government of the Irish Republic
to give the British Army and the
Royal Ulster Constabulary the
right of hot pursuit of terrorists
fleeing to safety in the republic.
The British Government and
the press have subjected Premier
Jack Lynch and his government
to unsparing criticism and
denunciation, because the
terrorists do have a certain
degree of sanctuary in the
republic. Hundreds of suspected
terrorists are in Dublin's prisons
and British police and army
helicopters have actually received
permission to overfly the border
between Ireland and Ulster on
the lookout for infiltrators.
The British have someone to
talk with and negotiate with in
Dublin; the Israelis have no one
in Beirut.
THE DUBLIN authorities
have promised strong measures
to control the activities of the
Provos, but there is no one in
I .elianon to enforce order:neither
the puppet government in Beirut,
the Syrian Army which occupies
most of Lebanon on the pretext
of maintaining order, nor the
United Nations peace-keeping
force in southern Lebanon which
concedes that it cannot prevent
hundreds of terrorists from
operating in the zone it purports
to control-
In 1958, when Syria instigated
a coup to overthrow the
legitimate Lebanese Govern-
ment, President Eisenhower,
without ado, dispatched a force of
U.S. Marines to maintain order.

We have a myriad of events to tell you about Congregation
; Kol Ami, as they have been an extremely busy synagogue the
last few weeks. Oct. 18-21 the Young Judea Group (which is the
\ synagogue's youth organization for 14 to 17-year olds) attended
\ a retreat in Orlando. In addition to meetings and discussion
; groups, the participants also enjoyed some hours of fun and
relaxation at both Disney World and at Circus World. The
i Young Judea Group, which is sponsored by Kol Ami but under
[ the auspices of Hadassah, was accompanied on this four-day
j retreat by Karen Cheater (who is a Hebrew teacher at Kol Ami)
: and by Mark Rabinovitz (who is in charge of the youth activities
'-, at the synagogue).
On Oct. 19, the first two Hebrew classes of the congregation
I (made up of 8 to 10-year-olds) participated in the sabbath
. service. They use a textbook which is a Jewish scout manual
called Hatsofim. The students recited some parts of this Hebrew
I scout program and proudly sported their new scout banners on
I this special evening. Teacher, Ina Levine'a class included Stacie
\ Berger, Seth Goodman, Michael Hamberg, Terri Oster, Deborah
: Sirverman, and Alexandra Weller; and, teacher, Lily Heller's
class included students Seth Zalldn, Mark Price, David Marcus,
Jason Marks, Laurie Goldstein, Scott Hirshorn, Melissa Zeigler,
Susie Sokol, Jennifer Schwartz, Matthew Fink, and Jennie
Shimmel. Our warmest congratulations to all of these proud new
scouts on this lovely service you presented.
Last, but certainly not least, on Oct. 27, Congregation Kol
Ami had a cocktail party for new members at the home of Ina
and Bob Levine, in Carrollwood. In addition to the Levines,
working on the committee to arrange this party were Doris and
Steve Field, Enna and Skip Rufkias, Beverly and Jay Fink,
Marilyn and Bill Barnes, and Leslie and Stuart Wohl.
As you can see, it was a busy and fruitful October at Kol Ami.
We love to hear about your congregation's activities so please
let us know about them.

enough, the Hillel students hope to initiate a building fund. We
think that this unique way of raising money was interesting
because it has really gotten most of the school enthusiastically
involved in striving for a common goal

Vandals with black spray paint desecrated the walls and furnishings of the office of Dr. Albert
Gessman, professor of classical studies at University of South Florida, Tampa campus,
(photos: Audrey Haubenstock)
'Sce/ie from the 30's
Jewish Professor's Office Vandalized inTampal
By JUDITH ROSENKRANZ
Dr. Albert Gessman opened his
office door Monday of last week
to find that over the weekend
someone had entered and left
behind a scene out of "the 30's
and 40's when these things were
all over walls and buildings,"
according to Dr. Gessman.
A professor in the Department
of Religious Studies, Gessman
said that he has maintained a low
Jewish profile and has no idea
why he was singled out for this
attack. "Some of the things
(remarks painted on the walls
and ceilings) were directed at
other colleagues, one of whom is
not even Jewish. In fact, he is
from the Republic of Germany,"
Gessman told The Jewish
Floridian.
While I was shaken, I feel
that it was a prank. On a campus
with 23,000 students, 2,000
faculty and I don't know how
many employees, there are bound
to be some nuts," Gessman
continued. He has been at the
University of South Florida since
1961 and has received a plaque
from one campus group for
outstanding teaching. This
plaque was desecrated in this
incident.
GESSMAN'S recollections of
the 30's and 40's in Europe are
very vivid, since he and his wife
were there. A native of Vienna, he
spent most of the war years in
Czechoslovakia, Gessman ex-
plained, "I lost all of my family
during the war. My father was
picked up by the Gestapo in
Belgrade in 1943 and never seen
or heard from again. My uncle
was picked up in France in 1946,
not too long before France was
liberated, but it was too late for
him. My wife is from
Czechoslovakia." Gessman
continued, "With 39 incidents on
the USF campus in the last two
years, no one has ever found a
perpetrator. But the campus
police has limited manpower."
Speaking to the Tampa Jewish
Federation board of directors
meeting later in the week, Dr.
Hans Juergensen, another USF
faculty member, stressed "that
the greatest danger is for the
Jewish community to remain
silent. We must speak out and
write the mayor, governor and
legislators to fund the univer-
sities so that their police forces
are able to handle affairs such as
these. We must write letters to
newspapers and public officials
and let our concern be known."
Dr. Juergensen went on to
explain that while he had
received calls and Dr. Gessman
had received calls, they generally
were not from Jewish students.
"The Jewish students are far too
apathetic. Unfortunately, they
have begun to take these things
somewhat complacently."
Dr. Juergensen was himself the
target of a vicious anti-semitic
attack a year ago. He was one of
the professors whose name was
written on Dr. Gessman's wall.
RABBI M irk Kram. director of
the B'nai Brith Hillel Foun-
dation on the USF campus and
the newly named chairman of the
Campus Ministry- Association,
spoke of his experiences riding as
a chaplain with the USF campus
police. "They just are not
equipped to deal with things such
as this. They are geared to the
dairy campus events such as
stolen bicycles or tapes or
records."
Rabbi Lazar Rivkin, director of
the USF Chabad House, spoke
later with The Jewish Floridian
and said, "The greatest danger is
saying, 'What can we do?' or 'It's
just a prank.' This is a disease
which can affect all groups and
can strengthen attitudes at times
when it is not 'just a prank'. We
must never say it will always be
here. We must do what needs to
be done to protest this attitude."
The Community Relations
Committee of the Tampa Jewish
Federation has asked for a letter
writing campaign along the lines
of what Dr. Juergensen
suggested. The campus police
have asked that anyone with
information contact them at
once.

Optimism Dampene
Stalled Autonomy Talks Show Deep Israel-Egypt Differences
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) Egypt's
Premier Mustapha Khalil,
Israel's Interior Minister Yosef
Burg and America's special
Middle East envoy Robert
Strauss will meet this week in
London to try to break the dead-
lock in the negotiations on the
Palestinian autonomy plan pro-
vided by the Camp David agree-
ments and give a new boost to
the Israeli-Egyptian peace
process.
The optimism, and even
euphoria, which marked the
signing of the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty last March have
been seriously eroded by six
months of hard bargaining on the
autonomy issue with no visible
progress in sight. Many dip-
lomats involved in the nego-
tiations believe that the
autonomy plan is the main
stumbling block to a better
Israeli-Egyptian understanding
and that a solution on this issue
would mark the beginning of a
new era.
THE FIRST public Israeli-
Egyptian debate ever to be held
at ministerial level a joint
appearance by Israel's Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan (now
resigned) and Egypt's Minister
of State for Foreign Affairs But-
ros (ihali before the Council of
Europe, which comprises the rep-
resentatives of 21 West European
countries, in Strasbourg, France,
last week showed that the split
between Cario and Jerusalem is
deeper and wider than it had
appeared to be.
The two Foreign Ministers
revealed that Israel's and
Egypt's views on the peace
process, the aims to be pursued,
the tactics to be used, and even
their interpretations of the Camp
David agreements are diamet-
rically opposed. They agreed on
only two points: their deter-
mination to implement the Camp
David agreements and to rule out
any recourse to war. On every-
thing else, they were in total dis-
agreement.
Ghali told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the dif-
ferences between the two
countries "are as serious and
fundamental as those which
existed at the beginning of the
(Israeli-Egyptian) negotiations."
OTHER Egyptian diplomats
said privately that in their view
current differences "are far more
serious than what they were a
year ago," in September, 1978
when the Camp David nego-
tiations started. "Then," the
Egyptians said, "we still had
illusions. Now we have none."
The (ihali Dayan "duel" in
Strasbourg revealed some of
these differences. The fun-
damental problem is the view
which each of the countries,
Israel and Egypt, takes of the
agreements themselves. For
Egypt, what matters is "the
spirit of the treaty which should
take precedence over the letter."
For Israel, as Dayan repeated
several times, "an agreement is
an agreement. If you (Egypt) did
not like it. you should not have
signed it."
This difference in basic ap-
proach is most evident on the
Palestinian autonomy issue.
Egypt, as Ghali made it crystal
clear, MM the agreements as pro-
viding for "Palestinian self-
determination" with all that this
implies Israel, Dayan made just
as clear, intends to stick to the
agreements paragraph which
only provides that the Pales-
tinians will have a voice in
deciding their own future.
"NOWHERE in the agree-
ments are the words self-deter-
mination written," Dayan said.
"Had Egypt wanted something
else than what we signed, it
should have held out for more
and refused to sign the final
treaty."
But besides the differences on
this basic approach, the two
countries also differ on tactics,
rhythm and speed of the nego-
tiations.
Egypt wants to obtain the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion's agreement to a Palestinian
participation in the talks even if
the PLO itself remains absent in
a first, and what Cairo considers,
a preliminary phase. The Egyp-
tians believe that no Palestinian
leader will accept to join the
negotiations without at least
tacit PLO approval, and the
Egyptians want the talks to
succeed rapidly.
The Egyptian desire for "fast
action" was stressed time and
time again by Ghali. He went as
far as to warn that in case of
failure "we shall have to seek a
the area based on similar terms,
namely, negotiations with each of
its neighbors followed by
separate peace agreements.
Egypt. <>n the other hand, sees
the peace treaty with Israel as
the first step of a vast and com-
prehensive peace plan in which
Israel will ultimately have to
negotiate with all its Arab neigh-
territories from which it will
withdraw as a result of the
autonomy talks "should it feel
threatened or should the PLO
manage to establish a foothold
there." Egypt's interpretation is
that any Israeli withdrawal is
final.
"In no circumstances would
Israeli troops be allowed to re-
enter the territories from which
they will have been withdrawn," bors on lhe basis 0f tne Camp
Ghali said. "Israel will not even I)avj(| agreements.
have a right of pursuit and will
have to stop at the border be-
tween its frontiers and the newly
liberated territories."
ACCORDING to the Egyp-
tians, the Israeli-Egyptian peace
treaty "shows that our (Arab)
interpretation of Security Council
Resolution 242 is the right one:
withdrawal from (all) the oc-
cupied territories."
Egypt also believes that the
Ghali barely hinted i

Europe that what Egypt
wants is peace with Israel

FOR ISRAEL, there is no
rush. "President (Anwar) Sadat
himself said that the Palestinians
can join the talks at a later date,
even in three years from now,"
Dayan retorted. Egyptian dip-
lomats explained later that Cairo
increasingly feels its isolation
within the Arab world. The
Egyptians accused Israel of
"wanting to Isolate us so as to
deal with a weak and docile
partner."
On the actual interpretations
of the Camp David agreement,
the two countries are also in com-
plete disagreement. Israel,
Dayan stressed, feels authorized

many Jewish housewives know

Mott's to the family.
Whether it's one of the

_e how this art form, too, can

i weapon when it is deemed
to manipulate muaic
toward that end.
One would think that the per-
former of music is immune to all
of this. Unlike the composer, he
is, in the end, no more than an
interpreter of a known com-
position, and what he brings to
his interpretations can hardly be
political if the compositions
themselves are not.
IT IS, I suppose, on this basis
especially that starry-eyed slaves
of the latest Muscovite keyboard
genius or gymnast or ballet
dancer base their argument that
art is apolitical as they race off to
see them wherever they may
appear in public performance.
But even here they are wrong, for
the inference one is meant to
draw from these artists is clear:
they are exceptional because the
Soviet Union, Soviet society,
Soviet culture are exceptional.
There is no doubt that the
message is subliminal, but its
intent is obvious, in fact far more
so than were it explicitly stated.
It is for this reason that
organizations like the Jewish De-
fense League take such
vociferous objection to ap-
pearances of Soviet artists in the
United States.
As the JDL sees it, these
artists are neon signs advertising
the greater glory of the Soviet
system, when one really ought to
see them for what they are:
blinders to isolate our vision
against the grim realities of the
oppressive Soviet political
system from which they come to
beguile us.
ARE SOVIET performers in
music, gymnastics and the ballet
outstanding? By definition they
are; it is necessary that those
who visit here be outstanding.
But this is so to the exclusion of
too many personal freedoms and
ought to be seen in the same light
as the Soviets' excellence, say, in
missiles: it, too, is an achieve-
ment paid for at a price that is
devastating to the human spirit.
In the end, those in America
who indulge their artistic sen-
sibilities by jamming the
auditoriums wherever Soviet
performers may appear are
making the most revolting of
bourgeois statements: they are
saying that they are willing for
others to pay this devastating
price in order that their own

LEKH LEKHA From Shem. Noah's eldest son, descended
Terah. who was the father of Abram Terah dwelt in the city of
Haran.
After Abram a father Terah died, the Lord said to Abram:
"Leave your father'a house and go into a new land which I wUI
ahow you. For I shall start a new nation with you."
So Abram and his wife Sarai left for Canaan. He took his
nephew Lot, too.
At Shechem the Lord appeared to Abram again. He told
Abram: "Unto your children will I give this land!" And Abram
said: "I have no children!" Whereupon God replied: "Look up
to the sky and count the stars if you can. So many shall be the
number of your children and children's children. To them I shall
give this land!"
When Abram was 99. God appeared once more to him and
said: "Henceforth let your wife Sarai be called Sarah, for she
shall be a princess by your side. And your name will be Abraham
(father of many). I will bless you both and give you a son, whose
name will be Isaac. I will establish My covenant with Isaac and
I will make you the father of a great people." (Genesis

Education
In Judaism
By RABBI THEODORE BROD
Dedicated to my Daughter, the Educator
The great sage, Maimonides, writes: "Every Jew must
study Torah whether he is poor or rich, healthy or sick, young or
old, even if he has a wife and children to support, he must set
aside fixed time for study. .Until when must one study? Until
the day he dies." IRambam. HUchot, Talmud, Torah 1:8)
With the above in mind, I will attempt to write a short
history of education in Judaism.
During the Patriarchal period (18th to 11th centuries BCE)
the Israelites were semi-nomadic. They resided in the cultural
centers of the ancient world, from Ur in Babylonia to the eastern
Nile Delta in Egypt. They were subjects of the rulers of the
Fertile Crescent.
THE EDUCATION of children was entrusted to the family
(Bet Avi). Some of the tribes specialized as scribes and teachers
for the entire clan of a confederation of shepherd tribes. (I
Chron. 2:55) The "family" has remained a vital educational
influence in Israel from Biblical times. The major characteristics
of the "family" were "respect for parents" {Exodus 20:12) and
love and responsibility toward the children.
"Remember the law of Moses, whom I commanded on
Horeb, for all Israel, statues and ordinances. Behold, I send unto
you Elijah, the prophet and he shall turn back the heart of the
fathers to the children and the heart of the children to the
fathers. .[Malachi 22-24)
Fatherly love even for the disobedient child was stressed.
"Their children shall be as afore times, and I will punish
all that oppress them. [Jeremiah 31:20)
DISCIPLINARY measures were instituted for the child's
wellbeing.
"He that withhokleth his rod hateth his child; but he that
loveth him chastiseth him betimes" (Proverbs 14-24)
"The rod and reproof impart wisdom; but a lad abandoned
to himself bringeth shame ." {Proverbs 29:15)
The religious education of the child centered around the
telling of tribal or national history.
"Remember the days of old consider the years of ages past;
ask your father, he will inform you, your elders they will tell
you." (Deuteronomy 32:7)
The head of the household was commanded to teach his
children.
"Though shalt teach them diligently until thy children, and
thou shalt speak of them when thou sittest in thy house, and
when though walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and
when thou risest up." (Deuteronomy 6:7)
BIBLICAL pedagogy stressed religious home ceremonies.
Every holiday had its own ritual. Passover, Sukkoth, etc. were
celebrated by the entire "family" thus conveying cultural values
from one generation to another. The home and family become an
educational institution.
Alphabetic writing ushered in a break with the traditional
scribal cultures of Egypt, Mesopotamia and Canaan. To be
literate, no longer meant that you belonged to a profession of
scribes or priests. Professional scribes served the administration
of the government, councils and temple bureaucracy. They set
up their own schools which taught the skills of a scribe.
The Israelite scribe had an easy task of learning, the 22
letter alphabet on comparison to his Egyptian or Mesopotamian
colleague.
The alphabet was developed by the Canaanites (2,000 BCE)
probably in Phoenicia. Between 1,200 and 600 BCE the form of
the letters in Phoenician, Hebrew and Aramaic did not differ
radically.
In the ninth century BCE, the form and order of the letters
found their way to the Greek islands. The prophet Isaiah refers
to a "first grade" lesson for the day when the children were
taught the alphabet. (Isaiah 28:9-13)
A child was taught to copy short texts. Excavations have
produced a "Gezer Calendar' (1,000 BCE) that bears out the
above assumption. Gezer was an important Canaanite city that
housed a Levy community, serving the Jerusalem ad-
ministration. Simple arithmetic was taught in all systems of
education.
"The rest of the trees of his forest shall be few injumher, so
thatabdy may write them down." (Isaiah 11:19)
(Continued next weak)
Shabbot Shalom!

They didn't have to fight; their
presence was enough to abort the
coup, and they were home in
short order.
In 1975, after the Lebanese
Government had been forced to
give the PLO its own legal and
military status on Lebanese
territory, a PLO-leftist Moslem
combination, with Syrian sup-
port and Soviet arms, easily
ousted the government and
launched a merciless war on the
Lebanese Christians.
IN THE state of anarchy that
followed. two American
diplomats were kidnapped and
slain by the terrorists. President
Ford sent no marines to help the
stricken nation. Secretary of
State Kissinger, always ready to
work out compromises, stayed
away from the mess and breathed
a deep sigh of relief when a
Syrian Army marched in in the
guise of an Arab peace-keeping
force.
No Lebanese voice dared be
raised in international forums
against the rape of the tiny
nation except that of former
Foreign Minister Charles Malik
who warned a Senate committee
that there could be no peace in
the Middle East "while there are
non-Lebanese armed forces on
I.chiiru-si' soil "
There has been no change from
that situation although the State
Department, even without
Kissinger, still professes to see
the Syrians as a stabilizing force
and the only threat to peace, the
Israelis. Secretary of State Vance
has not been able to distinguish
