Failure to Roast Carter

Carter Vows Commitment to Israel

Inister of Agriculture,

Iration here for support-

haron declared before an
bdience of American Jew-
leaders here. He said he
"shocked" that
),000 Jews did not march
Washington to demon-
[rate in front of the White
louse in the aftermath of
be UN vote and sharply
iticized Jewish leaders for
[eeting with two of Presi-
>nt Carter's top aides in
lew York.
SHARON, one of the most out-
oken hard-liners in Prime
linister Menachem Begin's
government, addressed a
meeting of the Conference of
President's of Major American
Jewish Organizations convened
at his request. Sharon had
specifically asked that the
meeting be open to the press.
But after his opening remarks,
Rabbi Alexander Schindler, who
was presiding in the absence of
Presidents Conference Chairman
Theodore Mann, requested that
the press leave. The feeling
among some reporters was that
he did this because of the severe
tone of Sharon's criticism of the
President and American Jewish
leaders and because some of the
latter present intended to
challenge the Israeli minister's
imputation that they were silent.
Sharon said that he was "sur-
prised" that Jewish leaders met
with Sol Linowitz, Carter's
special Ambassador to the
Israeli-Egyptian autonomy
negotiations, and Robert
Strauss, the President's cam-
paign manager, to discuss the
U.S. vote "while Jews were being
beaten outside." He was ap-
parently referring to the scuffles
between anti-Carter demon-
strators and police across the
street from the Harmonie Club.

(JTA) President Carter
has reiterated that "the
security of Israel" is the
"first and foremost" prin-
ciple that guides U.S.
policy in the Middle East
and "secondly, Jerusalem
to be an undivided city."

niew Brzezinski, at a breakfast
meeting here with reporters at

Carter's statements appeared
to be in response to demands for
clarification of U.S. policy
toward Israel in the wake of
American support for the United
Nations Security Council's anti-
Israel resolution of Mar. 1, which

The question remained,
however, when and whether the
Administration would formally
present a document to the
Security Council detailing the
President's repudiation of the
U.S. vote.
CARTER TOLD the New York
City leaders at the White House
that "Our American policy (in
the Mideast) and the principles
on which we have based that
policy have not changed. First
and foremost is the security of
Israel, its integrity as a nation,
to be at peace with its neighbors

agreed basis for present and
future negotiations" continues to
be UN Security Council Reso-

Carter added that U.S.
principles include resolution of
the "Palestinian problem in all its
aspects, to use the words that
were agreed by Prime Minister
Menachem Begin, President
Anwar Sadat and myself."
He said another principle is to

Ida Nudel Lashes Out At
'Slanderous Articles9
Ida Nudel, the Soviet Jewish
activist serving a four-year
sentence of exile in Siberia, has
accused a regional newspaper
there of "knowingly inciting
hatred for the purpose of
bringing about violent reprisals"
against her. The text of
telegrams she sent on Mar. 2 to
President Leonid Brezhnev and
other Soviet officials making the
charge, was received by her
sister, Elana Fridman, a resident
of Holon.
Nudel's accusations were
leveled against the newspaper
Kasnoye Znamya (Red Banner),
published in Tomsk, which, she
said, published a slanderous
article against her on Feb. 28. In
addition to Brezhnev, she sent
her protest telegrams to Interior
Minister Shchelokov, to the
Governor of the Tomsk region,
the editor of the newspaper and
to the Dutch Embassy which
handles Israel's interests in
Feb. 28 of this year, the regional
newspaper in Tomsk oblast
published a slanderous article
against me. The attitude of the
local residents toward me in my
place of exile was already hostile
and the malicious allegations
contained in this article have
exacerbated the existing
hostility. The townspeople are
aroused absurd suspicions and
rumors are circulating about me.
I accuse the authors of this ar-
ticle of knowingly inciting hatred
for the purpose of bringing about
violent reprisals."
The telegram did not specify
the allegations and copies of the
Tomsk newspaper have not yet
reached Israel. Nudel, a 48-year-
old economist known as the
"guardian angel" of Soviet
prisoners of conscience, was
arrested in Moscow in June, 1978
and charged with "malicious

if National Nuclear Debate Set March 30
To mark the anniversary of the
Three Mile Island accident,
leading experts on the nuclear
controversy will meet to discuss
the issues on "The National
Nuclear Debate" to be broadcast
by WUSF-TV, Channel 16, on
Sunday, March 30, at 10 p.m.
Award-winning broadcast
journalist Jim Leher will host the
Lillian and J.D. Rosenthal recently returned from a 23-day
trip that they enjoyed with their daughter and son-in-law from
New York, Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Diamond (their daughter is
Metropolitan Opera singer Elinor Ross). The main part of their
trip was a two week visit to India (a scientific cultural ex-
pedition arranged by the Continuing Education Department of
Columbia University). They visited New Dehli where they were
invited to eat at the Presidential Palace with the president;
Agra where they saw the Taj Mahal and Jiipur (the pink city of
India); Bombay; Goa (a well-known seaside resort); and Ankola
(where on a hillside they saw the solar eclipse, an awe inspiring
sight that constituted one of their main reasons for taking this
particular trip).
As if this vacation were not special enough, Ross Lewis, who
is Lillcp and J.D.'s grandson, came from Tai Pai, where he is
the edfftr of the National Historical Museum of Tai Pai, to visit
with his grandparents in New Dehli. On their way home, the
Rosenthals enjoyed a short stopover in London. Back here in
Tampa we are living vicariously through the details of this
marvelous trip!
Our congratulations to Ken Gricr, son of Dr. and Mrs. Arnold
Grier, who has been accepted at Baylor Medical School in
Houston, Tex., to complete his one year of internship in clinical
psychology. At the end of this year of internship, Ken will
receive his Ph. in clinical psychology from the University of
South Florida. Ken has been doing some work in the area of
stress in police officers, which sounds absolutely fascinating.
The Griers (Ken's wife Lynn is a high school English teacher)
will move to Houston in August to begin this program. We wish
you lots of success on your studies and a happy and productive
year in Houston.
Bob Kaplan and Mark Otstein will be in Tampa for Passover.
Mark is stationed with the Coast Guard in Galveston, Tex.
Bob is stationed in Fort Pierce, also with the Coast Guard. Mark
is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Olstein, and Bob is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Roy Kaplan. Bob's grandmother from Miami,
Rose Malin, is coming up to see him over the holiday.
I had the pleasant opportunity to visit with Rose and Manuel
Aronovitz a few weeks ago at the John Knox Village where they
are now living. I enjoyed taking a few minutes to glance over the
beautiful scrapbook that Manuel has compiled. This book
contains just some of the citations and awards that the two of
them have received over and over again through the years for
their unfaltering dedication and hardwork for the Tampa Jewish
community. The list of their activities is too long to even begin
to list here, but it is obvious to anyone who has either known the
Aronovitzes or even simply heard their name, that for the 65
years that they have lived in Tampa have constantly given of
themselves. Now we all reap the benefits of their hard work.
Manuel hopes that these benefits will only serve as remainders
to the rest of us to volunteer our time and our efforts for our
Jewish community.

Max Cleland told a Senate
committee that although most
Vietnam veterans "are adjusting
well" many do have lingering,
nagging problems.
Cleland, who lost both legs and
an arm in a hand grenade ex-
plosion in Vietnam and now
heads the Veterans
Administration, told the Senate
Veterans Affairs Committee that
most of his compatriots are well
reintegrated into American life
and society, have a record of
earnings and employment which
compares favorably with non-
veterans, and have participated
more heavily in education and
training under the GI Bill than
did veterans of earlier wars.
But, Cleland said, "we also
note that some veterans continue
to have problems.
"Our task now, more than
ever, is to identify those veterans
who continue to have problems
associated with military service
and to provide them with ap-
propriate assistance," he said.
In what amounted to a "state
of the veteran" account to the
committee, Cleland paid tribute
to the leadership of its chairman.
Sen. Alan Cranston in advancing
legislation that resulted in VA's
new and unique readjustment
counseling program for Vietnam
era veteran".
The program embodies a low-
key personal approach to
veterans with persistent read-
justment problems and cuts
through red tape and many other
formal procedures in an effort to
provide individual counseling

The program, which was
championed by Cleland for a
decade before its creation last
year, involves a nationwide

agreeing to meet with Carter's
representatives, the Jewish
leaders helped to "cover up" the
real intentions of the Carter
Administration and helped the
Administration to make its UN
vote into an issue between it and
the Jewish community.
According to Sharon, the issue is
that this kind of American policy
will bring the U.S. to commit "a
new mistake" in its Middle East
The Israeli minister accused
the Administration of attempting
"to establish a second Pales-
tinian state," thereby weakening
Israel and itself while enabling
the Soviet Union to carry-out its
plan to control the Middle East
oil reserves and thereby secure
Soviet influence over the West
and Japan.
"We are the only ones along
with Egypt and the U.S. who
can guarantee the oil supply to
the West and stop Russian
expansionism." Sharon said. He
declared that Jewish silence was
partly responsible for the Holo-
caust and called on American
Jews to stand up to the U.S.
government. He conceded,
however, that the U.S. is Israel's
only friend.
HE CLAIMED that Israel is
presently under pressure to make
further concessions and alleged
that this was part of a pattern
that started immediately after
the Camp David agreements were
signed and that the U.S. govern-
ment has been trying "to run
away from that agreement." He
said he would not accept Carter's
explanation about the U.S. vote
but was not surprised by the way
the U.S. voted. He said it had
happened before, in the Andrew
Young affair.
According to Sharon, Carter's
explanation "just created con-
fusion" among American Jews.
He said the situation might have
been much clearer to them if
Carter had not disavowed the

Mazel Tov!
"How good and how pleasant it is for brothers to
dwell together in unity."
Congregations Beth Israel and Rodeph Sholom,
Mazel Tov! You have made a courageous move. It is
a daring step. It took foresight.
Above all, it took vision beyond self, beyond
sentimentality and beyond one's personal world. It
took the ability to see the needs of the entire Jewish
And you had all of that.
Not many synagogues will vote to turn over
their assets and accumulated wealth. Not many
synagogues will give up their home. Not many in-
dividuals will do either. But that is what
Congregation Beth Israel has agreed to do.
Seeing a greater need in the Jewish community
of Tampa. Seeing an opportunity to join with
another congregation and become (with the joining of
the two) a greater congregation. Seeing an op-
portunity to provide a independent home for The
Hillel School of Tampa (the only Jewish day school
on Florida's West Coast).
And this not only gives Hillel a home, it will
give Hillel the opportunity for expansion and for full
accreditation with the acquiring of physical
education facilities (the Beth Israel building is
located across the street from a city playground and
within walking distance of the Jewish Community
To Rabbi Nathan Bryn, rabbi of Congregation
Beth Israel and president of the Tampa Rabbinical
Association, we give a special salute. Rabbi Bryn has
been a leading force behind the concept that
whatever the costs, it is always better when Jews
join forces. It gives unity. It gives strength. (And in
the long run is a savings to the community be the
elimination of dupication of services).
Yes, Rabbi Bryn, your foresight and leadership
are a blessing to us all.
Yes, Tampa is being given a great opportunity
by this act. Lets all see that we, as the community,
respect the courage we have seen demonstrated.
Cannon Fire at Armageddon
I HAVE seen Armageddon in
the north. It is there, near
Megiddo, where Solomon kept
his corral of horses, that the
forces of history marched across
the great plain below in an end-
less plotting of plunder.
From Alexander through
Allenby, the checkerboard of this
vast arena lies like a roadmap for
the strategic advances of men
who followed their star to
the ultimate struggle in which
the satanic campaign to anoint
evil will appear to triumph, only
to lead to the end of our days. At
least, this is how Revelations
tells it, if you care to read a weak
imitation of the immortal Hebrew
And, as a metaphor for crisis,
Armageddon still reigns
supreme. The metaphor is perfect
for Israel's destiny since the
fraud called the Camp David
accords. To understand the grand
design of the accords, you have
only to read the autobiography of
one of its signatories, Anwar
Sadat, which appeared virtually
simultaneously with that pes-
tilential "achievement."
Those who have not studied
the Sadat autobiography with
careful attention wear blinders on
their starry-eyed stares when
they talk about the new peace be-
tween Israel and Egypt. Before
they talk about peace, let them
first remove the blinders. Let
them first understand Sadat's
I DO NOT call Egypt's Presi-
dent a deceiver. I see him merely
as he sees himself. He makes no
secret of the image. He draws his
self-portrait clearly enough. The
so-called peace initiative is
another battle in Araby's cam-
paign to destroy Israel, to bring
Israel to Armageddon.
It is no different from the
battle Sadat launched in the 1973
Yom Kippur War. In his auto-
biography, Sadat's perception of
Carl AI pert
the military encounters in that
war are ludicrously inaccurate.
It is a rewriting of history to
conform to Sadat's view, not of
his immediate achievements, but
of his ultimate aim assisted by
then-Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger, who also rewrote
history by moving Israel's army
around to positions of dis-
advantage at the threat of
abandoning them if they refused'
his role for them as pawns on his
chessboard of diplomatic
My observations are neither
original nor unique. The late
Yigal Allon voiced them fre-
quently and forebodingly. The
new foreign minister, Shmuel
Tamir, refused as an MK to vote
for signing the accords. There are
numerous others.
MAINLY flying cowboys like
Ezer Weizman, international cos-
mopolites who are far more com-
fortable in Claridge's than, say,
at Tel Chai where Jabotinsky lies
asleep, see in the accords not
Armageddon but a new era for
their internationalism.
I see in them Armageddon.
Already, the armies march across
the great plain again, with
Jimmy Carter and the Germans
and British and French and es-
pecially the Kremlin in command.
Inevitably, international PLO
recognition is at hand. The
British, ever great agents in the
anguish of others, are moving to
make it all legal with the re-
writing of UN Res. 242 this in
tandem with Sadat's rewriting of
the history of Israel and Araby's
wars with her.

Olympic Ban Would Hurt Israel
HAIFA No other country in
the world will find it more dif-
ficult than Israel to reach a
decision with respect to par-
ticipation in the Moscow
Olympics. A few short months
ago, we were concerned lest we
not be invited as a result of the
Arab boycott attempt to keep us
away. Today we are faced with a
grave dilemma, whether or not to
accept the invitation which did
reach us.
President Carter has clearly
stated all the weighty arguments
for non-participation. They need
not be repeated here. Every true
Israeli subscribes heartily to the
condemnation of naked physical
aggression, and to the attempts
of any superpower to extend its
control over neighboring states.
IN ADDITION. Israel feels a
deep sense of loyalty to and
identification with the U.S. which
has done so much to assure
Israel's defense. But and it's a
big but there are factors in-
volved which apply uniquely to
Israel, and which cannot be
lightly brushed aside. A digest
summary of these factors should
suffice to underline Israel's
We are engaged in a constant
struggle to remain in in-
ternational sports bodies, while
the Arabs have been seeking,
with some degree of success, to
oust us. We have protested on
the grounds that the Arabs are
mixing politics with sports.
Should we now eliminate our-
selves from the Olympics for that
very reason and thus justify the
Arab campaign against us?
Our relations with the USSR
go beyond immediate politics.
Russia has a Jewish population
of over two million, and any
provocative action on our part
could result in an immediate
hermetic sealing of the door of
exit for them. Can we have it on
our conscience that our defense of
Russia on the Olympic issue
caused cessation of Jewish
OUR PRESENCE or absence
in Moscow will actually have not
the slightest effect on the major
issues involved. If Britain.
Germany. Canada and other big
states stay away, Russian
prestige is struck a blow. Our
absence won't affect the
Olympics in any way. The only
one to be hurt would lie our-
Indeed, Russia would be happy
to have us stay away. Long
before we were invited, there was
hesitation in Moscow on the
grounds that Israel represents a
security problem, requiring
special protection. Remember
Munich? The Soviet Union could
not ask us to stay away, but if we
bowed out, we would bring them
great relief.
We should not minimize the
effect on Russian Jews of the
appearance of an Israeli team,
under the flag of Israel, at the
international games. Previous
visits to Russia by Israel troupes
in much smaller numbers in-
variably contributed to a welling
up of intense Jewish sentiment
and identification with the
Jewish people, followed by new
expressions of desire to come to
Israel. The propaganda value of
our appearance on the Olympic
fields is much greater for us than
for any other nation.
WE COME back to that big
"but." What is indeed in the long
run in Israel's best interests? To
make the gesture of withdraw!

U.S. at a moment when Americi

A Background Report \
The Story of a Congregational Merger
It has happened.
After months of meetings (and
rumors I. the negotiations be-
tween Congregations Beth Israel
and Rodeph Sholom have not
only been concluded, but they
have been approved.
Congregations Beth Israel and
Rodeph Sholom will merge. They
will become Congregation
Rodeph Sholom and will be
located in the present Rodeph
Sholom synagogue facility. This
has been approved by both con-
gregations in open membership
meetings. The legal documents
are expected to be dated March
31. with the merger to become
effective during the summer and
be concluded prior to the High
Holy Day*.
The Hillel School of Tampa will
receive the synagogue building,
grounds and parking lot of Con-
gregation Beth Israel and will
change its name to "The Hillel
School of Tampa at Beth Israel."
All other assets of Congregation
Beth Israel will transfer to Con-
gregation Rodeph Sholom.
HOW DO you take two con-
gregations with two synagogues
and one Jewish parochial school,
mix them all together, shake
them up and end up with one
congregation. one Jewish
parochial school with a building
of its own? Even Solomon would
have to ponder that!
Yet. that is just what has
happened in Tampa during these
last three months. There first
were just two or three men dis-
cussing the idea. They got a
group of men together (some
from each congregation involved)
and from there it has evolved.
Slowly. Carefully. With due
thought to the needs of each of
the groups involved.
It generally is agreed that the
first committee which met con-
sisted of Frank Szold, Sol
Walker, Howard Sinsley, Ben
Greenbaum, Mark Lewis and
Sam Lasky. Since that meeting,
there have been hours and hours
of meetings. Along the way. the
idea "in concept" had to be
approved by the executive boards
of the two congregations.
Receiving that approval, the
negotiations continued and the
"Articles of Merger" were ac-
cepted by a unanimous vote of
Congregation Rodeph Sholom on
Feb. 28. On March 9. Congre-
gation Beth Israel held a
membership meeting during
which the "Articles of Merger"
were adopted by a vote of 89 to

Articles of Merger
The following list represents the basic agreement that has
been entered into between the respective committees of
Congregation Rodeph Sholom and Congregation Beth Israel.
1. The Congregation Beth Israel building, the real property
on which it is located, and the parking lot shall be deeded to the
Hillel School of Tampa so long as the property is used as a
school facility. If, for any reason, the building ceases to be used
by the Hillel School as a school facility, then title to the building
and real property shall revert to the merged congregations, to be
called "Rodeph Sholom." (hereaftercalled "the Congregation").
2. In consideration for this conveyance, the Hillel School of
Tampa shall change its name to read "The Hillel School of
Tampa at Beth Israel." The name Beth Israel" shall always
remain on the front of the building.
3. The Congregation shall make a written commitment with
Rabbi Bryn to seek an agreement that shall be acceptable to him
and the Congregation with regard to the honoring of Beth
Israels contractual commitment to him. This agreement shall
be reduced to writing, and shall be signed by the appropriate
representatives of the Congregation.
4. Six members of Congregation Beth Israel shall be ap-
pointed to the Board of Directors of the Congregation, said

5. Members of Congregation Beth Israel at the time of the
merger shall be assessed dues at the rate they are currently
paying until February. 1982. when they shall be assessed at the
then current rate of the Congregation. In addition, members of
Beth Israel in good standing who elect to join the Congregation
at the time of the merger shall not be subject to any building
fund assessment that is currently assessed against new
members of Congregation Rodeph Sholom. The Dues Committee
of the Congregation shall give the same special consideration to
persons of either former Congregation who are unable to meet
the financial obligations imposed by the Congregation.
6. All occupants of Beth Israel building agree that the
Hyman Chapel shall continue to be used as a sanctuary.
7. The Beth Israel Yahrzeit plaques shall be moved to
Rodeph Sholom. and the Congregation shall honor these per-

merger. All other plaques currently on display at the Beth Israel
building shall remain appropriately displayed there.
8-The entire assets of both Congregations shall be tran-
sferred to the new Congregation, subject to the following
& Beth Israel reserves the right to retain a total of
$4,000.00 for the purpose of providing severance pay to long
term employees, said pay to be given at the discretion of the
Beth Israel Board of Directors.
b. Beth Israel reserves the right to donate two of its
Torahs to any congregation or organization that it deems fit.

to insure that no radical changes shall be made with regard to
the preparation of the people involved.
11. The individual Congregations shall appoint appropriate
corr-nittees to insure thejrcferly transfer of property, the or-

h operation of this merger. >
directors will receive six members
from Beth Israel (two for three
years, two for two years and two
for one year) who will be ap-
pointed by the president of Beth
Israel, Aaron Trachtenburg.
Rabbi Bryn plans to "involve
myself with my congregants in
Rodeph Sholom with our newly
acquired mispucha." Rabbi Bryn
likened the merger to a wedding
and added, "With a marriage,
you must work at it. You cannot
take it for granted. So it is with
this merger." It is Rabbi Bryn's
intention to work very closely
with Rabbi Sandberg in making
the transition as comfortable as
possible for the members of both
CREDIT IS given throughout
Tampa to the close relationship
between Rabbi Bryn and Rabbi
Sandberg and to their leadership
in bringing about this union.
There is no doubt that without
their support, this move could
not have continued along the
path to success.
Members of Congregation
Beth Israel will now be members
of Congregation Rodeph Sholom.
Membership dues for these
members will remain as they
presently are until February
1982. At that time, the dues*will

By merging, we are uniting
Judaism in the city of Tampa.
There are benefits to the in-
dividual congregations involved,
as well as to the city. There is the
benefit of strength, there is the
benefit of economics. The entire
project is exciting. The Hillel
School will now truly be able to
stand on its own as a community

Past president of

Honorary president of
The Hillel Day School
We entered into merger
negotiations with Rodeph
Sholom with thoughts of
strengthening the entire Jewish
community of Tampa by con-
solidating our energies and
strengths into a united front and
helping with the continued
education of our youth. With
these thoughts in mind, our
committee met with a similar
committee from Rodeph Sholom.
By always remembering our
common goal of the advancement
of and the strengthening of the
Jewish community of Tampa, we
were able to achieve what some
people thought was impossible.
We are looking forward to a
very bright future.

Daf Yomi
Prophesy of Jeremiah
Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylonia, placed Gedaliah in the
position of governor over Judaea (587 BCE).
Only the poorest of the poor were permitted to remain in
Judaea. Gedaliah, the Jewish governor, established himself at
Mizpah where refugees were received and permitted to resume
life in their native land.
' After a few weeks, Gedaliah was assassinated and the
garrison at Mizpah was wiped out. The day after Rosh
Hashanah is marked on the Hebrew calendar as Tzom Gedaliah
(Fast Day for Gedaliah). Fearing Babylonian reprisals, the Jews
left Judaea and fled to Egypt taking the prophet Jeremiah with
them. Against his will, the Prophet settled in the Delta where he
was joined by many of his brethren. It was Jeremiah's bitter fate
to die in exile in the land he hated. Thus 136 years after the exile
of Israel (10 Tribes) and Samaria came the exile of Judah and
JEREMIAH saw and prophesied
restoration of Judah and Israel.
redemption and
"Yes, I have loved thee with an everlasting love; Again will
I build thee, and thou shall be built, O Israel; Thou shalt go
; forth with dances. Again thou shalt plant vineyards upon the
mountains of Samaria. Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion! Unto
the Lord our God."
The Prophet sees a reunion between Israel and Judah:
"Behold I will gather them from the uttermost parts of the
earth. With them the blind and lame. The woman with child. A
great company shall they return again here. They shall not
stumble. For I am a father to Israel and Ephraim is My first-
THE PROPHET sees Mother Rachel weeping for her
children driven into exile:
"Thus saith the Lord: Refrain thy voice from weeping and
thine eyes from tears. O Rachel. For thee shall return from the
land of the enemy. There is great hope for thy future, saith the
Lord; thy children shall return to their own land."
The "New Covenant"!
"Behold the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a
New Covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of
Judah; not according to the Covenant that I made with their
fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to take them out
of Egypt, for they broke it, although I was Lord over them, saith
But this is the Covenant that I will make with the House of
Israel after those days, saith the Lord. I will put My Law in
their inward party, and in their heart will I write it; and I will be
their God and they shall be My people for they shall all know
Me. from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the
Lord. "For I will forgive their sins and their iniquity I will
remember no more." {Jeremiah 31:30)
The above passage in the Book of Jeremiah is quoted quite
often by Christian missionaries.
EARLY Christian leaders, known as the early Church
Fathers, were very hostile towards Jews and Judaism. They
denied that the Bible has anything whatsoever to do with the
Jews. They held that it had to with the past of the church.
Origen wrote, "Because of the crime of the Jews, Jerusalem
perished and the nation was overthrown." Augustine wrote,
"The Jews who rejected him were dispersed by the Romans over
the face of the earth."
Christianity taught that Judaism ceased when the Temple
was destroyed (70 A.D.) and the church became the New Israel.
The Bible was taken over by Christians and given the name
"Old Testament." The Christian writings were called the "New
The New was to be the authentic, updated Covenant be-
tween the Christian Church and God. As proof of their claim
that God had abandoned the Jews, they quote Jeremiah 31:31.
Our people who are called the "People of the Book," who
know their history and are aware of the real meaning of the
words of Jeremiah, uttered 600 years before the rise of Chris-
tianity, know that missionaries in their race to win Jewish Souls
single out passages out of context to prove their point.
There is absolutely nothing to even suggest that the New
Covenant will differ in nature from the old. No new revelation is
intended, nor was it ever needed. Jeremiah makes the assertion
that unlike the past, Israel will henceforth remain faithful to
God while He, in turn, will never reject them (Saadiah Gaon in
his book of Emunah VDayoth).
MOST Christians still do not understand the meaning of
Jewish peoplehood, which makes a Jew more than one of the
"Jewish Faith." They cannot understand how it is possible for
one to be both an atheist and Jew, too. Interreligious co-
operation has never been more needed or more possible.
The rise of the State of Israel has precipitated for Christians
a crisis of identity. They are called upon to define their own
faith. For the problem is here, confronting them with an earthly
state whose very existence to the ongoing history of salvation.
Christianity must make a decision. It is no more a stand for
or against the People of Israel. It is for or against the Heils-
geschichte (Salvation History), to acknowledge God in the
religious significance of events in the world. They must hear the
Word issuing from Jerusalem and make response out of the
depths of their Christian conscience.
"For out of Zion will once more come forth the Torah, and
the Word of God from Jerusalem."

Pressed for a more pointed
reply, Brzezinski said "There is a

whether it is Palestinian or Arab

question of the Golan Heights

said, "Part of the problem was
that there was extraneous ter-

addressed itself to issues that
went beyond the settlements."
Asked if any official U.S. state-

with respect to "Palestinian or
other Arab territories," he said,
"This is a matter to be resolved

The American Jewish Committee has charged
that the remnants of the Syrian Jewish com-
munity, some 5,000 in number, "are kept as
hostages by the (Syrian) government, since they
are forbidden to emigrate, even to join relatives in
the United States."
The Committee's director of Middle East af-
fairs, Dr. George E. Gruen, has pointed out that
the State Department's recent survey of human
rights confirmed that Jews were the only group
within Syria totally denied the right to emigrate.
He added that in spite of personal assurances
given by Syrian President Hafez al-Assad to
President Carter that he would allow emigration
for humanitarian purposes, there has been no
lifting of the prohibition against emigration by
Jews, since 14 girls were allowed to leave in 1977.
Dr. Yair Sharav, newly-appointed dean of the
Hebrew University-Hadassah School of Dental
Medicine, founded by Alpha Omega Fraternity,
warns that "Israel is short of 800 dentists at
present and because the average age of many
dentists is high, the shortage will rise by another
1,000 in the next five to ten years.
The School, which was founded 27 years ago
and has produced some 500 alumni, occupies a
position of leadership in Israel.

Some 25,000 angry farmers from
all parts of Israel stormed the
Knesset building in a furious
protest against the Likud
government's agricultural
policies which they "aid are
driving them to bankruptcy.

police with tomatoes, eggs,
snowballs and stones.

which became one of the worst
riots in Jerusalem in many years,
was triggered by the govern-
ment's reduction of price support
subsidies for agricultural
products. The farmers charged
that the government was sub-
sidizing frozen beef imports while
local poultry farmers were
suffering. They carried banners
reading, "You Won't Destroy the
Agriculture" and "The Stock
Exchange is Thriving but
Agriculture is Dying."
The farmers' wrath was
directed mainly at Agriculture
Minister Ariel Sharon who they
accused of devoting all his time
to planting settlements in the
occupied territories but doing
nothing for the fanners. Sharon
is presently abroad. Several
Knesset members who tried to
mollify the demonstrators were
booed and hooted down.
The Knesset Economic
Committee called a special
session to discuss agricultural
problems and invited
representatives of the farmers to
present their complaints.

On Monday March 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the Jewish Community,
Center, Esther Jungreis, who has been described as the "Jewish
Billy Graham" will speak. Esther Jungreis has left her audience
spellbound through her dynamic and charismatic personality as
well as her revolutionary approached to the Jewish wared.
Esther is a columnist, author, lecturer, television and radio
personality. She has lectured to the Israeli Army and at
Madison Square Garden. She is also a successful youth and
marriage counselor. Her insights into Judaism show the ancient
truths of Torah apply to contemporary problems.
Mrs/ Jungreis is president and founder of Hineni, an in-
ternational movement designed to promote Jewish identity. So
make plans now to attend this fascinating evening on March 24.
Annually, Congregation Schaarai Zedek has a special musical
evening following a short Shabbat Service. On March 28, the
Tampa Oratorio Society will once again return to the temple to
present a most memorable and beautiful evening. Conducted by
Robert Scott, this year they will present "Solomon" by George
Federick Handel. Every year this musical service proves to be
one of the most special events that takes place at Congregation
Schaarai Zedek. This is an evening that can be enjoyed by much
of the community, so if you are interested, mark 8 p.m. March 28
on your calendar.
Meet Sidney and Bobbie Finer, who moved to the Westshore
area approximately one year ago. The Finers moved from St.
Louis where they are both originally from. They have three
grown children, Barbee, who is a social worker in Oregon;
Michael, who is a senior at Bradley University in Inninois; and
Stacy, who is a senior in high school. Sidney is the manager of
Commercial Metals Company, thus the reason for their move.
Bobbie does not work now but did have her own business in the
past, an architectual antique firm. Now she enjoys lots of sailing
and fishing, and both of the Finers are Cardinal and Bucs Fans.
We are so glad you are here and hope you will come to love
Tampa as much as we do.
Until next week .... ______
