Anwar Sadat, in a speech made
to Egyptian troops stationed on
the Suez Canal early this week,
declared that an Israeli time-

fore Egypt will agree to another
extension of the Mideast cease-
Egyptian officials previously
had said they would accept an-
other extension if progress was
made by the U.N. mediator, Dr.
Gunnar V. Jarring. Observers
said Sadat's statement indicated
a hardening of the Egyptian
position, and may have been
caused by Egypt's fear that Is-
rael would resume contact with
Dr. Jarring just before the ex-
piration of the current cease-
fire in order to force another

'Lend Lease9
Program Is
erell Harriman, former amb?;-
sador to the Soviet Union and to
Britain, and most recently chief
American negotiator at the Paris
peace talks, has proposed that
the United States initiate a
"carefully limited" lend-li
program lor Israel.
In an essay in the New York
Times, the 79-year-old diplon:-t
wrote that the great ad\ar.<
Of lend-lease is that under it
"the Arab nations could be as-
sured that after peace had been
achieved, major items of sophis-
ticated military equipment would
be returned to the United
He recalled that President
Roosevelt made such a proposal
"to get away from the dollar
sign" while providing arms f)
nations whose survival he want-
ed to support.
Mr. Roosevelt did that by
lending them military equipment
whirh was to be returned to the
Inited States when no longer
needed, Mr. Harrimaa wrote.
"We must recognize that many
Arabs have a real, though un-
realistic, fear that Israel is bent
on expanding her position. The
knowledge that in the event of
peace Israel would relinquish
much of its sophisticated arma-
ment could serve as an incen-
tive for the Arab states to ne-
gotiate," he said.
Jarring Talks To

King Hussein To Meet

Jordanian Embassy spokesman
has confirmed that King Hus-
sein will be in Washington this
week and that he will meet
with President Nixon at the

King's visit was to seek Ameri-

conquered in 1967.

ing talks some time in mid-De-
cember, but in the meantime it
is trying to persuade the United
States to put its pledges of mili-
tary and economic aid into writ-
ing in what would amount to a '
U.S.-Israel defense treaty, the |
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
has karned from usually reliable I
The United States is report-
edly hesitant about making a
written commitment. Washing-
ton is said to believe that the
large scale military and econom-
ic aid already given or promised
to Israel, combined with Ameri-
can assurances to act against
further Soviet involvement in
the Mideast conflict, have cre-
ated the proper conditions for
reactivating the Jarrine talks.
Some government circle* here
seem to agree with the United
States. They note that even writ-
ton agreement* can be broken,
sod cito the ease of France,
which still embargoes 50 Mirage
Jets that Israel paid for In full
two years a giir that any American pledgf,
written or verbal, depend* on
the Administration's good will,
and therefore one Is as good
as the other.
Israel's return to the Jarrir.g
talks next month seems fairly
certain, for the government
wants to avoid being branded a
"hold-out," and it runs that risk
if the talks are not resumed be-
fore Jan. 3, when United Na-
tions Secretary General U Thant
is obliged to report to the Se-
curity Council on the progress
of Mideast oeace negotiations.
The United States is known
to be cool toward any plan that
might result in the re-opening
of the Suez Canal in the near
future. Once the waterway is
usable again, the powerful So-
viet navy would have easy ac-
cess to the Indian Ocean and
the Far East.

Bill Extends Credit, Not A Grant
The bill before Congress which would grant Israel
S500 million in funds to make military purchases should
be understood for what it is the extension of credit and
not a grant. It is, of course, en important breakthrough in
American policy, but it is by no means a gift. Nor, as is
well known, has the retail cost of these urms been in any
way reduced.
One of America's most distinguished diplomats of our
generation, W. Averell Harriman, recently made a strong
point is arguing for a lend-lease progrcm of military equip-
ment for Israel. In an ertiele in the New York Tunes, Harri-
man pointed out that every nation threatened by Commun-
ist or Communist-supplied arms has at some time received
American Military grant assistance; even such Arab coun-
tries as Jordan and Iraq have been given not sold
American arms. In other words, Israel is virtually unique
in having had to contract to pay for all arms she has re-
ceived from the United States.
The crushing burden that Israel has assumed in pro-
viding for its defense could very well accomplish what the
Arab nations cannot do on the battlefield. The Harriman
plan must be given serious consideration by our ioreiqn
policy experts. It is not only fair to Israel but brings bal-
ance to our Middle East program for pecce.
Young People Are Unaware
In the opinion of Cardinal Heenan. Britain's leading
Roman Cctholic, the greatest shock given to mankind in
modern times was not the bomb on Hiroshima but the
persecution of the Jews in Nazi Germany. That put an end
to belief in the myth of human progress. Young people
should be mede aware what was done by twentieth cen-
tury man in the name of nationalism the Cardinal feels.
His recommendation is that it would be educationally
good to show films of Belsen to young people every year
because the full horror of the Holocaust is scarcely known
to those under 40. Many Jewish educators agree with this
pcint of view. But their efforts to provide religious school
children with the story have often met resistance from
Jewish parents in this country.
Their Persistence Is Disturbing
New Jersey's highest court has ruled, not sure
that the voluntary reading of a daily prayer in a rural h
school, is a violation of the First Amendment as held by
the United States Supreme Court.
This would seem to be hardly worthy of reporting, for
most state courts have followed the lead of the nation's
h:ghest court in this respect. But the persistence of some
school boards including several in Florida in trying
all Kinds of subterfuges, not to say outright defiance of the
Constitution, is a disturbing element It is precisely in these
areas of the country where "law and order" is a household
phrase that continued violation of this particular law takes
place. As was stated in the decision, 'This type of subter-
luge is degrading to all religions."
Florida Voters Were Perceptive
Outgoing Atty. Gen. Earl Faircloth has suggested
the. Honda elections be held on the weekend to en-

were sold
Less basis
Long term capital gain $800
You will receive a reduction of
taxable income of $1,000 by giv-
ing the contribution which will, in
turn, reduce your taxes by $500.
Since you did not have to pick up
the $200 in additional taxes (as
indicated above) your net savings
will be $700 ($500 reduction of
taxes, plus $200 in tax savings).
Therefore, you can give the $1,000
worth of securities to charity at a
cost to you of only $300.
The ceiling has been lifted for
charitable contributions in tax-
able contributions in taxable years
beginning after 1969. In the past
where you had been limited to
3Cr'r of adjusted gross income, you
may now deduct up to 50f of ad-
adjusted gross income. But watch
the ceiling carefully. If your con-
tribution is in the form of appre-
ciated property, you will be lim-
ited to 30** instead of 50Cf- unless
you elect to take the unrealized
appreciation into income.
A certain caution should be
given at this time. If you are giv-
ing a contribution to a charitable
organization, and if it would give
you ordinary income had you sold
the asset at its fair market value
instead of contributing the asset
to charity, you will lv> limited to
your basis in the asset. Merchants
who have previously given inven-
tory in stock and trade to chari-
ties, persons giving contributions
of securities which had been held
for six months or less, and persons
who prepared books, letters and
memoranda will be limited to
their basis in the property and not
be allowed a deduction for the ap-
preciated value.
Also, any contribution where a
portion of the gain would be sub-
ject to a recapture as ordinary
income, then to thc extent of this
recapture in the form of ordinary
income, the donor shall be limited
to a deduction equal to his basis in
the property.
A gift of art objects and other
tangible personal capital gain
property which is used by the
charity in its exempt function en-
titles you to deduct the fair mar-
ket value of the gift subject to
the appropriate ceiling. However,
if the gift is not used in the char-
ity's exempt function or is given
to a private foundation not quali-
fied for the 50# ceiling, your de-
duction is limited to the basis,
plus 5Cr; of the appreciation rath-
er than the entire appreciated
There are new rules pertaining
to bargain sales to charity but bo-
fore you abandon this possibility,
it should be examini"d carefully.
You may still be further ahead
tax-wise by selling to a charity
but ion to the charity. Basically,
now if you make a bargain sale to
a charity, you must a cost or basis of the property be-
tween the "portions sold" and the
"portions given" to the charity.
Yes, now is the time to review
your tax states for 1970. If you
plan carefully, you can give that
tax gift that you have been plan-
ning to give to charity with a far
greater lax benefit.

Mrs. Katz opened the discussion' introduced Airs. Brodie. wlu
in turn introduced the discussion
leaders. Mrs. Lev!, who spike
first, stated tlia! young people
who come to her office for help
are most often searching for their
tdentity. Parents must know them-
selves before (hey can help their
children, she declared. In this re-
spect, Mrs. Levi said, it is impor-
tant th;it parents give their chil-
dren roots; Jewish young people
must know that they are Jews.
Dr. Berger told the group that
he had been asked to soeak on
why young people in their late
adolescence turned awiy
Judaism. It isn't a question of
turning away from it for mist of
them, but rather the fact that th^v
had not grown uo with it, h" said.
Th? primary emphasis in family
life should he on the quality of that
life and paren's should make liv-
ing a Jewish life a pleasurable ex-
perience, he declared.

Why is il required to wash the
corpse as ritual before burial?
Some medieval sources claim
tn ,i this is done because the G j
comes to face ,is Make,- the Al-
mighty Creator, after it is buried.
Before advancing Into the realm
. || is required for one
to be ritually pure, a con litton
which is brought about by ritual
cleansing with water.
Some claim that the act of
cleansing the body with water in
a ritualistic manner is symbolic of
birth, which took place with the
embryo encassed in water. Death,
is thus regarded as being reborn
into another existence.
Water is likewise regarded as
one of the first elements of crea-
tion. In the Biblical account of
Genesis the spirit of God hovered
over the water when the world i
was first being created. Purifying
the Corpse with water is thus &
reminder of the original creation '
of the world, as if to say that the j
person was now passing on into
a new world.
Water is also the symbol of life.,
Purifying the body with water
denies the possibility of absolute
death and leaves room for the be-
lief in another life.
Why is Jewish tradition fS- ,
pedafly cautious about not
keeping corpse overnight in
the ancient city of Jerusalem?
Generally, this is because ol the
holiness of the ancient area of
Jerusalem. Apparently, it becomes
not only an insult to the corpse
but even an insult to the holy I
ground which may become defiled
from the corpse.
Some claim that it mav even be
in embarrassment to all the holy
ones whose spirit is lodged in
Jerusalem. Jerusalem is thus to be
n city of life supreme when- death
is indeed out of olace.
And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau, his
brother ." Chapters 32:4-36
JACOB Mtt-IS ESAU Jacob .was.approaching the land of
Edam where h brother hid settled. Fearful for the safety <*
his family, Jacob sent messengers to his brother with a con.
ctttotoryrmessagss but they returned with the news that Esau
was approaching with four hundred men. Preparing for the
worst, .1 ic >b divided his camp into two parts, so that if on*' were
,:l(.; the Other might escape. He also sent a succession of
valual cifts to Esau, to pacify him.
JACOB BECOMES ISRAEL That night he sent his wives
and children across the lord of Jabtak, and stayed behind alone.
A "man' a] pe red and wrestled with him until dawn. The man
who was an angel ol God, being unable to overcome Jacob,
touched the hollow of his thigh and lamed him. Nevertheless
I to releasi his opponent from his grasp unless he
received a blessing, his wish was granted Henceforth, he would
be called by a new name, Israel, ("He that prevails with God."l
Jacob now came face to face with Esau, who embraced him with
affection. Sensibly refusing Esau's offer of an armed escort.
J .col) parted from his brother and eventually reached Shechenv
named after the son of Hamor, chieftain of the city. There he
bought some land, pitched his tenl and in gratitude built an altar
to God.
JACOBS HOMECOMING Jacob returned to Bother, hav-
ing first buried all the idols in the possession of his household
under an oak tree in Shechcm. God appeared to him again, calling
his name Israel, and renewed the promise to give the land to
him and his seed. As they were approaching Bethlehem, Rachel
died in giving birth to Benjamin. At long last Jacob reached
Hebron, where he was reunited vith his father. Isaac died at
the age of 180, and his sons Esau and Jacob buried him.
GENERATIONS OF ESAU Esau hud become very weal-
thy, but as there was insufficient land in Canaan for both him
and his brother to tend their flocks and herds, he took his family
and possessions and settled in Mount Seir, in the land of Edom.
1 iu became the ancestor of many tribes who settled in that

It used to bo said that this Arab inclination,
wire* disregards the negative realities of divergent
political and economic interests, is actually the ex-
p:i.-sion of a deen emotional desire for Arab unity.
Arab unions and federations of the past, even

Nasser WU perhaps the only Arab leader who
learned a lesson from the disgrace when the Syri-
ans suddenly dissolved the Union and sent the Egyp-
tian troorw and officials packing. From then on.
until his death, he resisted the recurring ideas of
Egypt merging, uniting, federating or associating
with another Arab country "before proper condi-
tions wove established." He probably realized that
differences among Arba countries made the estab-
lishment of 'proper conditions" rather an aim for

'Morality And Eros'
ri:KK IT NOT for tho facts that Richard L.
Rubinstein is the Hilk'l director at the Uni-
rsity nt Pittsburgh, a graduate of the Jewish The-
ological Seminary, and one of the
avantgarde in the Jewish theolog-
ical cant about "God is Dead," I
would not review Morality & Eros
(McGraw-Hill Book Co. $3.95).
In the preface, the author writes,
"Judaism and Christianity arc in
the process of becoming neo-archa-
ic, pagan religions in fact if not in
tme." Since the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundafion'was
leated for the guidance of Jewish youth on bur
ampusee in matters of religion nnd te supported by
ewish communal funds for tho purpose of preserv-
ing of Jewish values, it is paradoxical that the effu-
sions of this author are antithetical to that which
Hillol espouses.
A rabbi, the author lacks the humility theoreti-
cally a characteristic of a rabbi or learned person.
On the contrary, he pontificates with all the pseudo-
l>rofundity and exhibitionism of the Eastern Estab-
lishment's intellectual snobbishness, and condones,
ff not advocates, sexual hedonism. He is flip and
?lib and Freudian to the point of an obsession. He
appears to have become immured in the oral and
nal passages of Psych 101 and 102. He poses as an
conomist, cultural anthropologist, sociologist, psy-
chiatrist and, of course, he never forgets to preach.
While many agree that youth is seeking tradi-
tional religion and oven mysticism, the author sees
fhe radical minority through his Freudian, and
myopic, vision and proceeds to attribute his findings
Jo the majority. It is not clear whether he is a
Hillel director or a literary critic, an existentionlist
uff, or the author of a new morality to replace
|the traditional morality of believing Jews.
Situation ethics is tho modern term for moral-
ity defined by subjective standards, e.g., "that which
linaJtos me happy is moral and that which makes me
I unhappy is immoral." Rubinstein chooses the
Jtiiactic definition of J. Fletcher which holds that one
[must love one's neighbor and that "If you love your-
*'lf, do so only for the sake of your neighbor."
p-'letcher rejects "all ethical laws save the command
7 love God in the neighbor," but how valid can
Fhis definition be if God is dead?
'The Jewish merchants themselves didn't maintain
the dignity of their avenue, and tho Sanitation Depart-
ment neglected the area," he added. The change has been
decided; "even five years ago it was a flourishing Jewish
community,' he noted.
Ruth Schraeter. a youth counselor for the New York
State Employment Service, reca'.ls that when integration
began, they thought: "We're going to stay, because we're
not against integration and we have some very fine
neighbors. It's going to happen all over, so why run? But
soon, our very fine Jewish merchants started putting out
schlock for a dollarnever mind the discount stores."
Then a nerrby building was turned into "a house of
prostitution and wham-bango drunken parties."
As more Jews left, her husband's professional posi-
tion became mori untenable. "He was extremely devoted
to Petach Tikvah," she says. "It was more than n job to
him, it was 'his temple,' and to leave them was very
difficult. In the last year or two they didn't even have a
minyan on a Friday night, and the handwriting was on
the wall. Ho wasn't getting any younger, and Petach
Tikvah would have to close."
The breaking point tor the Schraetors came when
their youngest child, a I.5-yc.-.r-old son. was held up and
roughed up four times once by a white and three times
by blacks, as it happens. So nov Alvin Schraeter. a
splendid hazzan, who hadn't sought a raise from Petach
Tikvah for more than a dozen years, officiates at Kew
Gardens Hills Jewish Center in Queens, and serves as
executive director of Bellorose Jewish Center. Kew Gar-
dens Hills J.C. has a professional choir, a "very active
program" (300 youngsters in Talmud Torah classes), and
Up to 900 congregants imo-t In their m:d-2?s) on a regular
basis. Ho says its situation is equivalent to that of Petach
Tikvah 10 years ago.
And to think that IVtach Tikvah means "Gate of
Isrnel Hewshtter
President Sadat, Nasser's successor, does not
seem to have the same sense of reality. As soon as
he took over, Sadat pushed^j^lea of the Federa-

of view. PoorrovcrpopulaSul Egypt could well use
the huge oil revenues of Libya, and would dearly
love to resettle some of its excess peculation in the
fertile awl suareoly inhab'tod lands of Sudan.
Tie idea of the "unity of the Nile Valley" goes
back thousands of years, to the times of fche Phar-
ohs but it always meant Eg>p;ian domination of
the up-river peoples and their struggle against
such domination. Why should the Sudanese be in-
terested in Egyptian domination or colonization?
And why should the new Libyan revolutionary re-
gime be eager to share its nil-wealth with Cairo?
Indeed, the latest Egyptian-Libyan-Sudan'-so
Federation is so loosely designed that it is hard to
see how Egypt could easily put its hand on the
revenues of one or the lands of tier other partner.
Sadat, unlike Nasser, does no' have the stature nor
the influence to make the Libyans or Sudanese ac-
cept Egyptian exploitation. It is most unlikely that
Sadat will be able to dominate the Federationif
it ever goes beyond the declarative stage. !{ prob-
ably wants the Federation in order to Obtain the
support of Sudan and Libya and thus strengthen
his own position. a1 least In Ide E > '
Today's Thought: By DR. SAMUEL SILVER
A Jewish President
THE FIRST Jewish president of the United States
will probably bo Joseph Lit bernian, of Now Haven.
Conn., a scintillating speaker, who just astonished
Connecticut by breasting a P.epuhiean tide to be
elected to the State Le*islatuiv on the Democratic
ticket. To g4 tho nomination he defeated the speaker
of the State Senate in a primary.
Joe Licberman, already a veteran politico, has
served in the office of Sen. Abraham Ribicoff and
has written a biography of James Bailey, chairman
of the Democratic National Committee.
Utterly captivating and possessed of a chemical
personality, Mr. Liebenuan, the ne|>hew of Ortho-
dox Rabbi Joseph Ehrenkinntz. of Stamford. Conn..
and very comfortable and know kdgeable in Judaism
will get national prominent-a jut at a time when
the nation will take it for granted that a Jew with
qualifications could be considered for tho White
House. That has not boon the case before. But by
the time Joseph Liebernvin will be ready for the
presidency, we predict the United States will be
ready for Joe Li 'berman.

Voting On Issues Or Personalities
UUIIO WILL BE prime Minister of Israel following the
national elections in the fall of 1973? A poll to be
held during the next few days may determine the answer
to that question.
For on Sunday Dec. 13, the Israel
; Labour Purty wiH hold its own balloting
.1 to choose delegates to i*s party conven-
tion. Some 284,000 registered party mem-
bers will go to more than a thousand
polling places in 445 cities, towns and
fi villages. Each 150 party members are en-
' titled to one convention delegate, which
moans that there will bo about 2,000 representatives at
the convention.
The convention its"lf will be held in April unless it's
postponed a procedure that is monotonously common
on the Israel political scene. The convention will in turn
choose tho Central Committee of the party which, until
the next convention, effectively controls the party ma-
chinery. The small, tight Committee not onV d >termines
party po'icy. but also selects tho party candidate for the
next election. Since Labour is the largest and the domi-
nant party in Israel, such nomination is practically tan-
tamount to election.
Two elements make the party election of unusual in-
terest this year. In the first place, this is the first internal
poll since the former Mapai, tho former Rafi and the for-
mer Achduth Avodah groups amalgamated to form tho
united Labour Party. The two junior partners who joined
Mapai in the merger were allocated seats and positions of
influence in the party councils on an arbitrary basis. There
were some who felt that Achduth Avodah was given re -
refutation greater than its potential voting strong!.
There were some who fvlt thai Rafi. whose major por-
SOnalHics are Moshe Dayan, Shimon Peres and Yosef
Almogi, was not afforded sufficient influence. Indeed;
Dayan had asked for i party election at the time to de-
termine the respective support of each faction, instead of
'otling the bosses on top determine tho matter. He lot
then, but will have his chance now.
The second element of significance is the fact that
the senior partner in Labour, Mapai, has not had a demo-
cratic poll of its rank and file since 1954! Tho potentate*
and big wheels wIh> have been running party affairs for
a long time may not today enjoy the same support whio
gave them power 16 years ag>. Of the 284.000 register**
party members, no less than 357e arc 35 years of ago or
less. This moans they did not vote at all in 1954. The im-
plications for a possible change in the complexion of the
party are obvious.
Both issues and personalities play a quiet but vita1,
role in these elections. If the friends and supporters or
Pinhas Sapir can gain control of the convention, i
hence dictate the composition of the new Central Commit-
tee, it could augur an increase in the influence of th
doves. If the friends of Daycn make a strong showing, it
may well mean that ho will be in line to succeed Go
Obviously tho full significance of the |Hill will not he
known until the delegates meet in c invention, and th<>
various groups maneuver for the tirst test votes. Never-
theless, Dec. 13 may maik a turning point in the politic;''
history of Israel.
