Dnal telethon effort on Jan. 17.
| More than 100 volunteers rep-
uting Tampa's synagogues,
(wish organizations and
encies have volunteered to
irticipate in the Second annual
ampa Jewish Federation-United
fcwish Appeal Campaign "SU-
ER SUNDAY." The Tampa
Lwish Federation Board and
fomen's Division have enlisted
[large number of volunteers for

imperative to collect substantial-

To Focus on Autonomy
Crown Prince Fahd
This was in essence the plan
promulgated by Crown Prince
Fahd last August and which was
promptly rejected by Israel as
another ploy to dismantle the
Jewish State.
Israeli officials were pleased
that Israel's reaction this time
had not been a flat rejection, but
rather a challenge to the Saudis
that if they want to talk peace,
Israel is ready to talk without
preconditions at any time and

(JTA) Secretary of State
Alexander Haig has gone to
Egypt and Israel to make a
"personal assessment" of
the status of the negotia-
tions for autonomy for the
Palestinians of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip, the
State Department said.
Haig might then offer propos-
als to move the talks along, De-
partment officials said. This
might also include the naming of
a special envoy for the negotia-
tions, although State Depart-
ment spokesman Dean Fischer
said that no decision has yet been
FISCHER announced that
Haig will be spending one more
day than' previously Tinnmw^
in the Middle East. Officially,
this wouldgive him time for con-
sultations Tuesday with his staff,
although apparently it is to allow
him to spend more time in Egypt
than originally planned. The Sec-
retary was to go to Cairo from
Brussels where ha attended a
NATO ministerial conference.
Ha was then to go to Israel
from Egypt and return to Wash-
ington Friday. Hs> was scheduled
to meet in Cairo with President
Hosni Mubarak and in Jerusalem
with Premier Menachem Begin.
Originally, Haig was to have re-
turned to Washington Thursday.
The clue to whether a special
envoy will be named may be re-
vealed when it is announced
whom the Secretary planned to
take with him on his Middle East
Fischer said Haig met last
week with the U.S. Ambassador
to Egypt, Alfred Atherton, and
the U.S. Ambassador to Israel,
Samuel Lewis, who were recalled
to Washington to brief him on
preparation for his visit to the)
Middle East.
BOTH ENVOYS have report-
edly returned to their poets.
Fischer also said that a meeting
of the autonomy negotiators, on
the working level, scheduled for
Cairo Sunday, was postponed at
the request of the U.S. The
reason given was that several
members of the American team
were to be accompanying Haig.
Whan Fischer waa asked why
Haig waa not going to Saudi

Good News on Israel's Economy
Israel made economic news on
two fronts this week. In Jerusa-
lem, the Centra! Bureau of Stat-
istics announced that the nse in
the cost of living in November
was the lowest for that month in
five years 5.8 percent, com-
pared to 11.8 percent in 1977 and
9.4 percent last year. (For the
first 11 months, the rate was 91.6
percent compared with 119.8 per-
cent for the same period last
year. 1 In New York, the Israel
Economic Mission announced
that more than SI billion worth-of
goods had been exported to the
United States thus far this year
the first time Israel has ever
exceeded that figure in a single
The two announcements make
encouraging reading for Ameri-
can frienda of Israel. Last year

sidering that Israel must spend

product on defense and another

even with 100 percent inflation
this year, the standard of living
of Israelis has actually gone up.)
The decline in the inflation rate
has been due in large part to
measures taken by Finance Min-
ister Yoram Aridor that might be
described as supply-side

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Are You a
TJF Women's Division
Frequently, I have heard
women ask the question, "Do you
work?" (i.e., "Do you have a
The question has been ad-
dressed to myself as well! Today,
this is a very understandable
question when so many women
are working in paid positions. For
those women who have not joined
the "paid-for-work" force, it
would be extremely unusual to
find a woman who is not volun-
teering her services in some
manner to an organization in the
community whether it be
ORT, Sisterhood, Hadassah,
Council, B'nai B'rith, TJF, or
whatever. Women are involved to
varying degrees, yet nearly all
contribute voluntarily in some
fashion: mother for her child's
classroom, serving on a com-
mittee, making telephone calls, or
participating in a fundraiser.
Recently, I have noticed that
many women who are not
working in a "paying" job are
extremely sensitive to the
question, "What do you do?
they seem particularly em-
barrassed to admit they do not
have a "paying" job-career. Yet
these same women provide some
very important services in their
community and various or-
ganizations. It is especially for
these women that I would like to
share an article by Marilyn K.
Smith, entitled, "The Pride of
The Professional Volunteer." I
think what she has to say is of
importance to all of us. Last
February, Marilyn K. Smith of
Miami was the keynote speaker
at the Tampa Women's Division
Pacesetter Campaign luncheon.
'Reprinted from "Record" The
magazine of the Women's
Division, United Jewish Appeal)
"A Professional Volunteer:
What's that?" The question
springs forth on an airplane en
route to a UJA training session,
during chitchat at a cocktail
party, and from an inquisitive
census-taker. When making a
new acquaintance, I used to have
fun answering a question with a
question: "What do you do?" he
or she would ask. "About what?"
was my reply. It is downright
tiresome to keep justifying the
menu and pride of the pro-
fessional volunteer.
Let's parallel the career woman
and the professional volunteer.
After initial interest and motiva-
tion comes schooling and train-
>og. A career person may seek out
mi? '^'ted by Air Florida or
ItJM, just as a volunteer seeks
out or is recruited by UJA or
federation. Each accumulates a
fwume and an impressive list of
credentials It's no different in
euher world. Career people climb

but do put flesh on the soul.

Wp -ThsMBN ofaccornpEE:
GLand worth ^
Kg'twaykg career with
attendant money, independence
and power is understandable. But
hear this: We who choose to
volunteer our efforts a valiant,
smaller, not-dead-yet breed are
demanding society's respect We
are at the heart of a civilized
world. We wield our own brand of
power, influencing future genera-
tions. We are needed desperately.
We save the government and
taxpayers enormous sums of
money and time. Erma Bombeck
once compared volunteers to
yachts: "They could stay moored
where it's safe and still justify
their being, but they choose to
cut through rough waters, ride
out storms and take chances .. .
If you have to ask how much they
cost, you can't afford them."
It is often said, "But a volun-
teer doesn't have to be on the job
from 9-6." Yes, but most volun-
teers I know take their responsi-
bilities as seriously as if they
were being paid by the hour. It's
a matter of credibility and pur-
pose. And, it isn't just what one
puts into the job. I am convinced
that to be effective in our work
we'd better get something sig-
nificant and meaningful out of it
or get out of it. Whatever it is
that motivates us, our own per-
sonal needs must be satisfied.
Most volunteers I know feel they
receive far more than they give.
True, we do not receive a pay-
check, but we are recipients of an
enriching payload. Being a
Professional Volunteer is the
most exciting and challenging
thing since motherhood. It is cre-
ative, nurturing, life-saving and
life-sustaining. For Jewish wom-
en, it is an especially ennobling
enterprise; part of a Ions
There are a vast number of
other things I'd love to do; but
for me, right now, the action is
here as a volunteer. It is my
choice, and it is my pleasure.
Don't be misled. It's not all
altruistic, or payment of "Jewish
Dues." Where else can one find
the potential for such outstand-
ing personal enhancement; the
superb opportunity to risk, to
learn and grow; the possibility of
sharing unique events with spe-
cial human beings; the occasion
to participate in raising funds
and rendering decisions that im-
pact Jewish life here, in Israel
and in the world at large? Where
else can one feel so congruent,
working in a professional capa-
city with no monetary com-
pensation for something so
positive and importan* as the
perpetuation of the dreams and
values of our people?
So someday, somewhere,
sometime soon when you're
asked. "What do you do? What
are you?" Shout it out with a cla-
rion, non-apologetic, dignified re-
joinder: "What am I? A Profes-
sional Volunteer, that's what!"

Volume 4 Number 3
Operation Super Sunday
It will be a massive operation involving some
many many volunteers. Object: to get the phones
ringing in Tampa Jewish households. Purpose: a
phone-a-thon on Super Sunday, this Sunday, to
appeal on a one-to-one basis for wideranging support
for the 1982 TJF-UJA.
Dr. Norman Rosenthal. chairman of the 1982
campaign, cites the worst security situation faced by
Israel since the Yom Kippur War. To this, he adds
the enormous cost of resettling the Sinai settlers
following Israel's withdrawal from the Sinai next
April a sacrifice involving incredibly dangerous
bets Israel is making in the cause of peace with
Then there is Israel's skyrocketing, out-of-
control triple-digit inflation, with the need to make
deep budget cuts, for example, in sorely sensitive so-
cial programs. Result? The American Jewish com-
munity must step in to help fill the breach.
But Israel is just one side of the coin called the
1982 TJF-UJA campaign of the Tampa Jewish
Federation. Federal budget cuts are beginning to
have a serious effect on elderly, young and troubled
Jews. Federation's family of social service agencies
stand to lose greatly in Government funding.
TJF-UJA also keeps its eye on the world scene,
where Jews are in an absolute crisis situation. Soviet
Jewish emigration is at a ten-year low. Indeed, there
is evidence that soon it may be cut off altogether.
Ethiopian Jewry stands on the brink of genocide.
World events tell the story of why the tiny remnants
of Jewish communities in Poland and Syria are in
precarious condition. Not to mention the spiraling
rise of global anti-Semitism even where there are no
Jews to bait.
And since the assassination of President Sadat
last October, the sale of AW ACS to Saudi Arabia
and the Saudi Eight-Point "peace plan," whose ob-
ject is to destroy Israel by amputation, and the
general downward trend in hopes for peace in the
Middle East ... all this brings us right back to Is-
rael, where we began.
But that is what the 1982 campaign is all about.
It is a circular campaign of concern for Jews world-
wide, for their survival, their hopes for the future.
These are the things you must think about when
your phone rings on Super Sunday, this Sunday.
Stay at home. Wait for the call from a battalion of
volunteers. And then give. Give until it hurts. For
Jews everywhere are hurting too.

ception, are bee. Mostly, they

THAT IS why "revolutionary"
movements today, in a deceitful
attempt to disguise their true in-
tentions, refer to themselves as
liberationist rather than as
what in fact they are. And that is
why "liberated victims of op-
pression have long since come to
know of their Catch-22 situa-
tionthat what awaits them now
may well be worse than what op-
pressed them before.
All of this rumination about
the deception of revolution and
disappointment in the aftermath
of revolution is what you come to
confront in "Reds." the new
Warren Beatty film, which stars
Beatty and Diane Keaton. and
which Beatty also co-authored,
directed and produced.
"Reds" is the presumable life
story of the American journalist,
John Reed, who went to Russia
during World War I, witnessed
and reported the final stages of
the convulsive struggle that led
to the 1917 October Revolution
and returned home to write "Ten
Days That Shook the World."
traveler of the Communist move
mem in America before this,
Reed became a visceral force in
the party s behalf on his return to
the U.S. He went back to Russia
shortly thereafter to work for ac-
creditation of the American Com-
munist Party over the struggle
for similar credentials here by the
International Workers of the
Reed failed in this. As well he
failed to go home again. The ris-
ing bureaucratic force of Soviet
Communism needed Reed as a
propagandist and prophet of ulti-
mate American labor revolution
in the cause of the Communist
Internationale. The bureaucrats
reasoned that the American
Communist Party and the IWW
would have to slug it out between
themselves to see who got the
Comintern's ultimate blessing,
much as the Bolsheviks slugged
it out with the Kerensky forces to
capture final, monolithic control
of the revolution.
Furthermore, at home, the
U.S. Justice Department had al-
ready charged Reed with sedi-
tion, and so his return would
have meant trial on criminal
grounds and. judging by the
mood of the times, severe punish-
ment. Aware of all this, the
bureaucrats simply barred Reed's
exit to use him until it killed him.
THE BEATTY film makes
much of Reed's relationship with
Louise Bryant, the wilt of an
Oregon dentist, where Reed's
own roots were, and wh
first met her. A struggling femin-
ist who. like Reed, was i
journalist. Brvant left her hus-
band and followed Reed b
York, where she lived with him
where they finally decided to
ntarfryy much to their social cha^
grin' oecause of the then
oorninantly negative attitude to-
ward marriage among Com-
munist fellow-travelers as a petit
bourgeois absurdity.
"Reds" is played out against a
backdrop of witnesses of that
turbulent era who testify to their
fleeting relationships with Reed
and Bryant, or their observation
of them through headlines and
sheer gossip. Appearing aa them-
selves. although some have died
since the film was produced, are
such personalities as the Ameri-
can novelist, Henry Miller; the
author and critic, George Jean
Nathan; the British novelist,
Rebecca West; Adela Rogers St.
John, and even an improbable
Georgie Jessel, whose senile
testimony is mainly a caricature
of Georgie Jessel.
All of them add some facts and
still more gossip about the cou-
ple's lives, loves and agonies, in-
cluding a passionate triangle and
even menage a trois involving the
playwright, Eugene O'Neill,
played by Jack Nicholson.
IT IS PURE speculation, but
my own hunch is that Beatty
staged his film bearing it in mind
as a sort of American "Lawrence
of Arabia." Reed, like Lawrence,
one a journalist, the other an
army officer, goes to an exotic
world in looming chaos, there to
achieve immortality by shifting
gears into revolutionary leader-
ship and prophecy.
Indeed. Beatty uses the desert
near Baku in the same way that
the producers of "Lawrence"
used the desert in the Sinai to de-
pict Reed's baptism into heroism.
Furthermore, neither man died
from the wounds of revolutionary
activity but rather from common,
even banal causes. Lawrence was
struck and killed in a motorcycle
accident that took place on a road
in the placid English countryside.
And it was everyday, ordinary
kidney disease to which Reed
succumbed, a disease that was
already consuming him the first
time he went to Russia.
REED IS buried in the Krem-
lin, the only American to be ac-
corded this "honor." but above
all things, this emphasizes the
pointless agonies of revolution-
ary heroes and their demise, and
Beatty makes much of it.
As to the pointlessness of re-
volutions themselves: "Reds"
has been criticized as being over-
ly longshowing time is a good
three and a half hours, including
a brief intermission. I do not
agree Beatty uses his vast can-
vas to project the history of the
period in epic terms. By defini-
tion, this includes an encyclo-
pedic view of characters, events
and their analysis, all of which
Beatty attempts. Less time on
screen would merely trivialize
what was in fact a 20th Century
cataclysm It would miniaturize
the banaiity of the minutia lead-
ing to the cataclysm.
Beativ also attempts a Tol-
of history. He fo-
cuses not only on the revolution,
but on i nalities out of
whom accidentally or otherwise
the revolution emerged

therefore anti-revolutionary con-
IN REED'S view, which
Beatty projects passionately,
without a tender regard for tht

a hell of chaos and death instead.
This, of course, ie as petit

it is precisely this ideological dis-
comfort with Communism that
Beatty shows in Read, not merely
aa a paradox typical of the think-
er who is more than a maker d

flirtation with Communism in tht
beginning and the death he suf-

O'Neill categorically rejected
that choice as sentimental; and
his bourgeois yearning for a wile

munists deplored and his kidneys

becomes a romantic soap open

of Croton-on-Hudson, NY., in-

husband who can never go home
again and whose lone surviving
kidney ringa down the curtain on
his political life, while the jugger-
naut of the Communist Interna-
tionale moves relentlessly for-
ward without him.
Still, there is ample room for

and anti-Communism. Also Jack

Flood of Criticism
U.S. Poles Aim at Jaruzelski's Bigotry
(JTA) A leading Jewish
official told a news confer-
ence here that Premier Wo-
jciech Jaruzelski of Poland,
responding to "a flood of
public criticism." is acting
to end "the resort of anti-
Semitism" by his military
regime which imposed mar-
tial law in Poland four
weeks ago.
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum. di
rector of interreligious affairs of
the American Jewish Committee,
disclosed this development at a
news conference at which he and
John Cardinal Krol. Archbishop
of Philadelphia, denounced the
Warsaw regime for attempts to
foment anti-Semitism among the
people of Poland in its efforts to
suppress Solidarity, the coun-
try's independent labor move-
THE CARDINAL said such
attempts "deserve the highest
condemnation it cannot be
condoned." Tanenbaum said the
remnant of PiHsh Jews were
being "scapegouted and held res-
ponsible for everything that has
gone wrong in Poland."
"The most recent report we
have now is that Gen. Jaruzelski
has begun to take seriously the
flood of public criticism of this
crude Nazi-like exploitation and
has begun these past 24 hours to
call upon leaders in the govern-
ment to try to put an end to the
resort to anti-Semitism."
It was announced at the news
conference that the Cardinal's
statement at the conference was
being broadcast to Poland by the
Voice of America.
The news conference was called
to announce the first of what an
AJCommittee official said would
be continuing contributions from
the Committee to Roman
i Catholic relief funds for Poland.
Study of Dade's Jews
Said to Show Progress
Substantial progress has been
made in the organization of the
Demographic Study of the Jew-
ish community of Dade County,
it was reported this week by
Jesse Casselhoff. chairman of the
Study. Under the auspices of the
Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
tion, the population survey is de-
signed to bring to light the bask
characteristics, attitudes, Jewish
practices and service needs of
Jews residing in Greater Miami.
"The consultants to the Study,
Drs. Ira Sheskin and Abe Laven-
der of the University of Miami,
have devised a highly profession-
al and practical plan for survey-
ing a carefully structured and re-
presentative sample of the Jew-
ish community," said Casselhoff.
The individuals participating
in the Study will respond to both
a mail and telephone question-
naire. The actual data gathering
will begin in March and continue
for some six weeks. Casselhoff
anticipates that the final report
of the Study will be available by
late fall of 1962.
The overall purpose of the
Study is to provide up-to-date in-
formation about the Jewish com-
munity and make predictions
about trends in Jewish life in this
area. The information will be
used by Federation, agencies,
and synagogues of this com-
munity to plan for future services
to the residents of the area.
The official. Robert Fox. chair-
man of the Philadelphia
AJCommittee. gave Krol two
checks-one for *500 from the local
chapter and one for $1,000 from
the national AJCommittee. .
Tanenbaum reported that the
AJCommittee had learned that

Israel s Economic Year
3 Currencies Kept Pace With Inflation
The U.S. Dollar and the Canad-
ian Dollar were two out of only
three currencies that kept pace
with inflation in Israel during
1981. according to economic re-
ports summing up the year just
ended. The third was the Swiss
Franc. All other foreign cur-
rencies failed to keep pace with
inflation, which was around 103
percent. The final precise figure
will only be issued officially on
January 15.
The U.S. Dollar rose in value,
in nominal terms, against the Is-
raeli Shekel by 106 percent dur-
ing 1981. these reports show. The
figure for the Canadian Dollar
was 107 percent and for the Swiss
Franc 104 percent. The British
Sterling fared one of the worst,
showing a 66 percent increase
against the Shekel which is a
serious fall in real terms.
MEANWHILE, the Histadrut
and the National Employers As-
sociation agreed on a five percent
wage raise payable from January
salaries. This ia the fourth such
rise over the two-year period,
April, 1980 through March, 1982,
and is intended to compensate for
"erosion" of salaries that occurs
despite the periodic cost-of-living
One such periodic COL. ad-
justment is also due as of Jan
uary salaries, so that wages will
in fact rise from February 1 by
some 23 percent. (The CO L.
hike for the last quarter of 1981
was around 18 percent.)
The government has already
indicated that it will comply with
this agreement in respect to civil
servants. Indeed, there are indi-
cations that the treasury will
agree to pay slightly more to the
lowest grades in the civil service.
IN APRIL. 1982 new wage
contracts are to come into force in
most of the economic sectors.
Unions and employers are al-
ready preparing themselves for
the tough and protracted
bargaining that this beennial
event always entails.
The end-of year reports showed
that investment in shares
almost a national pastime in Is-
rael was a profitable activity
on the average during the year
just ended. Share prices on the
Tel Aviv Stock Exchange rose by
more than 20 percent in real
terms (after taking account of in-

this statistic readily explains
why so many ordinary Israelis
spend so long pouring over the fi-
nancial pages and closeted with
investment advisers in their High
Street bank branches.

The ruling in Arkansas last week striking down
the State of Arkansas'law that required the teaching
of 'scientific creationism' in any public school also
teaching Darwinian evolutional theory is generating
enormous controversy, particularly as many other
state legislatures across the nation, including Flor-
ida's, have also already either passed or else are con-
templating passing laws similar to the one just de-
clared unconstitutional in Arkansas. Herewith, Jeff-
rey M. Cohen, Minister of the Kenton Synagogue,
London, offers his views on the subject.
These divine fiats, expressed
by the phrase, "And God said,"
were understood by Saadia,
Maimonides and the Vilna Gaon
(notwithstanding the letter's
antipathy towards philosophy) in
the sense of "God willed." Thus,
the whole creation account could
be made to concur with the con-
cept of one predetermined plan
for an evolution which would be
punctuated by sudden progres-
sive changes, each one conform-
ing wholly to the divine will and
pre-ordained schedule.
said," cannot be understood
literally, for there was no one
around at that time for God to
speak to; neither did God have to
utter words for His own will to be
effected. The Torah clearly em-
ploys this phrase only in order to
convey to man the sense of a
divine intention.
Similarly, must we understand
the pedagogic purpose behind the
representation of creation in six
days. God does not work in time.
The initial stages of evolutionary
creation similarly preceded a time
system, which was not intro-
duced until the fourth day, with
the creation of sun and moon.
This fact alone refutes any literal
understanding of the term "day"
in the Genesis account.
The Midrash also alludes to
this problem when it reminds us
that, to quote the Psalmist, "a
thousand years in thy sight are
as but a yesterday." Troubled,
likewise, by the term "day" in
the biblical account, that
midrashic sage postulated that
each "day" must have been "a
thousand years."
Had that sage lived today, and
been conditioned by science to
viewing the age of the universe in
terms of billions of years, he un-
doubtedly would have under-
stood the "days" of creation from
a similar perspective.
IN A RECENT lecture to the
Royal Society, the president, Sir
Andrew Huxley, reminded his
Pope Paul Advises
Israelis on Peace
ROME (JTA) Pope John
Paul II has called on Israel to
work harder for "a just and
stable peace" in the Middle East,
to adhere "to international
conventions" and stressed the
need for "full respect" of the
rights of the Palestinians in the
territories occupied by Israel.
Those points were made in a
Vatican communique issued
following a 35-minute meeting
between the Pope and Israeli
Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, the first high level con-
tact of its kind since 1978.
The communique stated: "His
Holiness underlined the urgent
need to intensify efforts to reach
a just and stable peace for all
people of the region who have
suffered and are still suffering so
much because of the decades-old
conflict. He underlined the
necessity that all interested
parties take part in the ne-
gotiating process, while in the
meantime adhering to in-
ternational conventions, so as to
favor dialogue and discussion."
THE communique said the
Pontiff also suggested that it will
be "a useful contribution if the
Palestinians of Cis-Jordan and
Gaza could enjoy a peaceful ex-
istence in full respect for all their
rights." The term Cis-Jordan was
used at the time of the Palestine
Mandate to distinguish western
Palestine from Trans-Jordan,
now the kingdom of Jordan, and
in the context of the communique
apparently was a reference to the
West Bank.
The communique said the Is-
raeli Foreign Minister described
to the Pope "efforts and con-
cessions" by Israel to achieve its
peace treaty with Egypt. "The
Minister expressed his profound
preoccupation about the massive
flow of weapons into the region
and also recalled the grave prob-
lem of terrorism," the com-
munique said. Shamir was also
reported to have explained Is-
rael's motivations for annexing
the Golan Heights, a move
sharply criticized last month by
the Vatican newspaper L'Osser-
vatore Romano and the Vatican
ACCORDING to the com-
munique, the Pope reaffirmed the
Vatican's position on Jerusalem
which does not recognize Israeli
soverignty over that city. Shamir
"illustrated the commitment of
the Israeli government for the
safeguarding and free access to
the holy places for all faithfaul,"
the communique said.
The Vatican has never ex-
tended diplomatic recognition to
Israel. The last Israeli Foreign
Minister to meet with the Pope
was the late Moshe Dayan who
had an audience with the late
Pope Paul VI four years ago.
Blum Highlights UN Hypocrisy
The Security Council, which is
debating Israel's annexation of
the Golan Heights, was told by
Ambassador Yehuda Blum of Is-
rael that it is "preposterous that
a state like Syria should be per-
mitted to unleash repeated acts
of aggression with the aim of
conquering and even destroying a
neighboring country (Israel) and
then, having been repulsed,
.should be permitted
before tin nvoke
international law in a selective
and distorted manner."
AmbassadorOia-Allah el-Fattal
ot Syria, who opened the debate,
called on the Council to impose
sanctions against Israel, in-
cluding cutting off economic and
military aid.
In a sharply worded speech,
punctuated with emotional out-
bursts, the Syrian envoy accused
Israel of "deceitful arguments"
.and*"l&s" to justify its annex- '
at ion of ^he.Goian-
audience that the question of the
origin of life on earth still lies in
the realm of speculation, and that
"the biggest problem for biology,
which is too often swept under
the carpet, is the existence of
This is tantamount to an ad-
mission that the blanket term
"evolution" is by no means a
totally self-sufficient explanation
of natural reality. It remains s
rather sketchy hypothesis which,
as we have suggested, is not
necessarily in conflict with the
idea of a divine inventor behind
the system.
Indeed, the remarkable corres-
pondence between the chrono-
logical sequence of evolutionary
development as given in Genesis,
Chapter 1, and that postulated
by the biological sciences would
suggest that the Torah is offering
us a most plausible concept of
evolutionary creation.
While the evolution of sophis-
ticated models out of the more
primitive appears natural
enough, there must have been a
stage at which the direct intru-
sion of the Creator himself was
required in order to bridge the
gulf between living and non-liv-
ing matter.
THIS "breath of life" was
generated by a most intimate
proximity between the Creator
and his creation. Especially in the
case of man, God "breathed into
his nostrils the breath of life, and
man became a living soul."
That "kiss of life" was the
greatest and most intimate tri-
bute to the potential of man. It
betokened the divine wish for a
reciprocated emotional relation-
ship: "I love you, saith the Lord"
(Malachi 1:2), therefore you. in
turn, "shall love the Lord your
God with all your heart, with all
your soul and with all your
might" (Deuteronomy 6:5).
Master of Creation is but one
attribute of God. His existence is
not refuted by whatever concept
of creation we choose to adopt.
That existence will never be
proved or disproved by science,
neither will science ever render
superfluous the great and urgent
need for faith.
Filling in Background
Begin Pay-Off to Yamit
Settlers Raises Tempers
The Cabinet has voted 5-
4 to approve a 4.4 billion
Shekels ($250 million) com-
pensation package for the
settlers in northern Sinai.
Premier Menachem Begin
cast the deciding vote on
the issue. Two ministers
The settlement was hammered
out by Deputy Premier and Agri-
culture Minister Simcha Ehriich
with the settlers of Yamit and
Rafah who must relocate when
Israel completes its withdrawal
from Sinai next April. It was
bitterly opposed by Finance Min-
ister Yoram Aridor who report-
edly warned after the Cabinet
decision that he would demand
further cuts in the national bud-
get to pay the added com-
THE SUM is 20 percent higher
than the ceiling previously set by
the Cabinet. Another opponent of.
the deal, Deputy Premier and
Housing Minister David Levy,
said it "violated all criteria." But
Ehriich, who was backed by De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon as
well as by Begin, reportedly told
his colleagues that the high price
was worth paying to ensure a
peaceful withdrawal from Sinai.
Northern Sinai was the scene
of disorderly protests by the set-
tlers in recent weeks. Houses
have been set afire, access roads
were blocked and trenches were
dug to signal the government
that the householders, business-
men and farmers would resist
evacuation unless their compen-
sation demands were satisfied.
Begin was said to want to
avoid bloodshed at all costs. But
he still must deal with ideolog-
ically motivated squatters,
chiefly Gush Emunim militants
from other occupied territories,
who have been occupying
abandoned houses in northern
Sinai with the stated purpose of
blocking the withdrawal. So far,
the government has made no
attempt to prevent their infiltra-
tion of the region.
THE CABINET met in Be-
gin'8 home where the Premier is
recovering from a painful hip
injury. Aridor argued vigorously
that the State could not afford
the sum negotiated by Ehriich.
He noted that an industrial
worker would have to labor 70
years to save what individual
Sinai settlers will now receive.
Levy accused the government of
surrendering to violence, thereby
signaling every other special in-
terest grou > that violence pays.
Begin d.fended the large sum
on grounds that the economy has
improved and Israel's exports are
growing. He maintained that
"one more good export deal"
would pay for the compensation
to the settlers. He shared Ehr-
iich s view that Israel hsd to pay
the price for a peaceful evacua-
tion of Sinai.
But Levy contended that
bloodshed was unavoidable even
if compensation is paid because
force will be needed to remove the
squatters who are not seeking
compensation but the permanent
retention of eastern Sinai by

Are Jews Immune to Assault of Pills andAhohol?
The generally-accepted
belief, among Orthodox
and non-Orthodox Jews
alike, that observant Jews
are immune to alcohol or
drug addiction has been
strongly disputed by a
yeshiva scholar who has
disclosed that he received
help not only from Al-
coholics Anonymous but
also from an unpublicized
agency for addicts called
Pills Anonymous.
The confessional statement, by
a Jew using a false name, ap-
peared in the November issue of
the "Jewish Observer,'' the pub-
lication of Agudath Israel of
America, a leading Orthodox
Writing under the pen name of
"A.B. Cohen," the youth, de-
scribed by the magazine as a
young man attending an ad-
vanced yeshiva in the New York
areaJ asserted he had been told by
a Pittsburgh psychiatrist that
"The problem of addiction now
exists in significant proportions
in the Orthodox community."
COHEN WROTE he had been
given that evaluation in a per-
sonal conversation with Dr.
Abraham Twerski, clinical direc-
tor of the psychiatry department
of St. Francis Hospital in Pitts-
burgh. Cohen also declared that
"every Orthodox physician I
have spoken to has had at least
one or more Orthodox patients
who', is pill-dependent or
Victim Says No
Cohen began by posing such
questions as to whether Ortho-
dox Jews are, in fact, immune
from such problems, how wides-
pread such problems are among
Orthodox Jews; and what forms
of help are available from the
Orthodox community "to a reli-
gious individual who is trapped
on the chemical-dependency
Cohen reported his difficulties
began when he started having
problems of concentrating during
his yeshiva causes, which led to a
"barrage of accusations" at his
home from his parents which in
effect he interpreted to mean
"Why are you such a disgrace to
our family?"
AFTER TRYING "the geo-
graphic cure," two years in an Is-
raeli yeshiva, which failed to
help, Cohen began a series of
equally unsuccessful therapies.
He began getting prescriptions
for a variety of mood-altering
After he was on the road to re-
covery, he added to the in-
formation about addiction he had
learned from Pills Anonymous
and Alcoholics Anonymous, con-
cluding that chemical addiction is
a disease and, like most diseases,
"it can affect anyone, even reli-
gious Jews."
Cohen reported he also learned
that addiction is possible on even
small amounts of a chemical
"it is not a matter of the amount"
of drugs or alcohol one takes but
"why he is taking it," which he
said was "to satisfy his de-
pendency on it."
He reported he found that the
greatest hurdle to recovery is the
denial syndrome." He edded
that "more serious than indi-
vidual denial is the situation
when an addict is a member of a
community that believes it has
no addiction." He asserted that
"the common claim, 'the utter
impossibility of me, an Orthodox
Jew, being an alcoholic or an
addict' compounds the individ-
ual's tendency towards denial.'
for this reason, among others,
"many therapists believe that
when addiction strikes an indi-
vidual who subscribes to a
culture that has less overt al-
coholism and addiction, it will
strike him more severely."
He asserted that the conviction
of immunity in the Orthodox
community makes it "very diffi-
cult" for the addict or alcoholic to
get help- He wrote that'

Police Confirm Minister Modai
Fingered for Wrong-Doing
The police have confirm-
ed that former Energy
Minister Yitzhak Modai is
under investigation for al-
leged wrong-doing when he
served in Premier Mena-
ce hem Begin's first govern-
ment from 1977-1981. Pol-
ice sources stressed, how-
ever, that no evidence has
been found so far to sub-
stantiate the accusations.
Modai, a Minister-Without-
Portfblio in the present govern-
ment, allegedly took kickbacks
from oil deals transacted on be-
half of the country when he head-
ed the Energy Ministry. He
vigorously denied the charges af-
ter the story become the lead
item on television news. He com-
plained to Minister of Interior
and Police Yosef Burg and to
Education Minister Zevulun
Hammer that the television re-
port was irresponsible.
POLITICAL ramifications
were introduced when the Knes-
set House Committee voted
unanimously to "severely cen-
sure" Labor MK Yehuda Hashai
for raising the matter of Modai 's
alleged misconduct in the Knes-
set in the form of a question to
the Premier. Hashai claimed, in a
television interview, that he had
written privately to Premier
Menachem Begin and to the
State Comptroller on the matter.
This was denied by both the
Prime Minister's Office and the
A police spokesman, Nitzav
Karti, confirmed that the televi-
sion story failed to stress the pol-
ice statement that nothing in-
criminating has been found so far

reporters that he personally
authorized every oil transaction
during Modai's tenure as Energy
Minister and there were no kick-
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
. "And he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and
the bush was not consumed"
(Exod. 3.2)
. .. ."And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon
God" 13.6).
SHEMOT The children of Israel increased and multiplied and
the land of Cos hen was filled with them. But a new king arose in
Egypt; one who had not known Joseph. He said to his people:
"The children of Israel are too many and too mighty for us;
come, let us deal wisely with them, lest they multiply, and it
come to pass that when there befalleth us any war, they also join
themselves unto our enemies, and fight against us, and get them
up out of the land" (Exodus 1.9-10). The new pharaoh made
slaves of the Hebrews. He also commanded that every new-born
male infant was to be cast into the river Nile. However, Moses
was saved from this infanticide by the king's daughter and grew
up in Pharaoh's court. He was forced to flee Egypt after slaying
an Egyptian whom he found mistreating a Hebrew slave. Moses
went to Midian, where he tended sheep for his father-in-law
Jethro in the desert near mount Horeb. God appeared to Moses
in a burning bush and told him to return to Egypt, for it was his
mission to liberate the children of Israel and lead them to the
land of Canaan. With the help of his brother Aaron, Moses
united the Hebrew slaves into a people. Then he came before
Pharaoh with God's demand that he "let My people go."

ulation about this from
time to time in recent
years. But two recent
events have increased the
suspicion that something is
about to happen.
First, President Mobutu Sese
Seko of Zaire, while on a visit to
Washington, told reporters his
government was ready to resume
relations with Israel "immediate-
ly" but would not act except in
conjunction with other African
Then it was disclosed that De-
fense Minister Ariel Sharon
visited several African countries
before going to Washington Nov.
30 to sign a Memorandum of Un-
derstanding implementing
strategic cooperation between the
United States and Israel against
a Soviet threat to the Middle
East. One of those countries was
MOBUTU, who received his
paratroop training in Israel, was
considered a staunch friend of
Israel until he broke relations
with Jerusalem two days before
the outbreak of the 1973 Yom
Kippur War. In a speech announ-
cing his decision at the United
Nations General Assembly,
Mobutu explained he had to
choose between a brother (Egypt)
and a friend (Israel.)
Zaire's break with Israel came
at a time when the Black African
countries were under heavy pres-
sure from the Arab states to
sever their ties with Jerusalem.
The process started in March,
1972, when Ugandan dictator Idi
Amin, who also received his mili-
tary training in Israel, broke off
relations after Israel refused to
provide him with additional
It is believed that the funds
were then provided by Libyan
ruler Muammar Khadafy. Finan-
cial aid from Libya waa also be-
lieved to be the reason Chad
broke relations with Israel a few
months later.
BUT THE major breaks come
in the days before and after the
Yom Kippur War and included
such close friends as Ghana,
Liberia, Kenya the Ivory Coast
end Ethiopia, then still ruled by
Emperor Hails Selassie, who
claimed descent from the Biblical
meeting between King Solomon
and the Queen of Sheba. By the
end of 1973, 27 countries south of
the Sahara had broken ties with
Israel leaving Jerusalem with
diplomatic relations only to
Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi and
But more than diplomatic rela-
tions were broken. Israel since
1968 had a program of develop-
ment aid to Africa. The program
started in Ghana shortly after it
became the first Black African
state to achieve its independence.
It soon was expanded to other
African states, and eventually in-
cluded some 80 countries in
Africa, Asia and Latin America.
The African program, started
by Golda Meir when she was For-
eign Minister, was a combination
of self-interest and altruism.
Since Israel was rejected by its
neighbors it could leapfrog over
them and find friends among the
countries just beyond the Arab
borders, friends who would be
good trading partners and might
provide diplomatic support.
AT THE same time, Israel as a
developing nation itself was ac-
cepted by the African countries
as a country which could share its
experiences in overcoming some
of the same problems they faced.
The Israeli programs were also
designed to have the host
country take over their operation
as soon as possible.
The programs, which attracted
many idealistic young Israelis in
the same way the Peace Corps at-
tracted Americans, were operated
by the government, by the Hista-
drut and by private Israeli com-
panies. Many Americans were
also brought to Israel for
Much, though not all of these
programs, were shattered when
diplomatic relations were broken.
The African countries were soon
backing the Arabs in their diplo-
matic attacks on Israel in the
various international forums.
But in the last few years, some
African countries have been
moving away from this position
as they saw that the UN General
Assembly and other international
forums were being dominated by
Arab attacks on Israel while their
concerns were given secondary
treatment or ignored. At the
same time, the Black African
countries have gained little
economic benefits from the oil-
rich Arab countries and, instead,
they and other underdeveloped
countries have Buffered on ac-
count of the oil price incr
