2,000 Delegates Attend
UJA's Annual Conference
NEW YORK (JTA> At the
1971 annual conference of the
United Jewish Appeal, Ameri-
can J.wry was urged to inten-
| sify its support and educational
programs vital to the peaple of
Israi The four-day conference
was it tended by more than 2,000
di lr Mil s from 250 communities
around ihe country.
In an interview, Edward Gins-
lni l.'JA general chairman who
wa- I'i'i Vet. d for a fourth term,
The people of Israel carry
rmou8 financial burden.
Mun than 30'a of Israel's gross
nal ml product goes toward
needs, Israel has no
(0 share the burden of
social programs which
ilv ivs been the traditional
responsibility of world Jewry."
\~ a result, he noted, a human
crisis exists and it grows morr
serious each day as new immi-
grants arrive who must be
housed, fed, educated and train-
ed so that they cam become self-
sustaining members of society.
During 1970, Mr. Ginsberg re-
|>orted, some 50,000 immigrants
arrived in Israel; at least 50.000
more are expected in 1071 and
there are still 200,000 immigrants
of prior years who have yet to
be fully absorbed into the fabric
of Israeli lite.
Mr. Ginsberg observed that
UJA's 1971 campaign seeks "not
only to arouse American Jewry,
but to get them involved in the
human needs of their brethen in
Israel. The people of Israel have
been called upon to give their
flesh and blood. All we ask from
the American Jewish community
is to give the money to maintain
vital humantarian programs."
The conference began with a
presentation of cash redeeming
1970 pledges by representatives
oJ_ome 50 communities from
around the United States. Shim-
on Alexandroni, Economic Min-
ister of Israel to the United
States and Canada, told the con-
ference's opening plenary session
that Israel's balance of payments
deficit for 1970 Is $1.3 billion and
a $1.5 billion deficit is projected
for 1971 because of the large in-

This desperate longing for Chris-

for self-defense and survival. The

In the face of this a-religious
climate, both Catholics and Prot-
estants recognize that they can-
not continue to be engaged in
everlasting combat without de-
stroying one another.
All this has a partial bearing on
the question of unity within Jew-
ish life. Most recently there has
been an exchange of communica-
tion between the presidents of the
Reform Central Conference of
.mcrican Rabbis and the Conserva-
tive Rabbinical Assembly. There
has even been an exchange of rep-

since no one has exclusive sov-

would be far more feasible were
We to engage in mutual endeavors
for ifrV I'eSIBratiftn of the religious
hold of Judaism upon us.
Our common concern should, of
necessity, call for a common ef-
fort to direct our attention to the
crisis which faces American Ju-
daism and that is the spiritual
disillusionment in Jewish life. To
permit vested interests and classic
misconceptions and institutional
rivalrks to persist will not only
impair our entire religious climate,
but stand in the way of a true
meeting of minds and hearts in
behalf of our faith. As Jews, we
must learn to speak to one an-
other and meet with one another,
not to supplant our respective de-
nominations, but to supplement
them and their programs.
There is a prophetic passage
which says, "They that fear the
Lord, spoke with one another and
the Lo,-d hearkened and hea-d."
We ought to take this statement
to heart. If we truly fear tho

MATTER OF FACT
iy\r\ i i i-i^ by JOSEpH ALSOP
rriday. December 25. 1970
Holiday Emphasizes Moral Stature
At a time when Israel has repulsed enemies determined
to destroy its existence, the temptation is great to recall the
military aspect of the Maccabean victory over the Syrians
more than 2.000 years ago. But as we prepare to celebrate
the holiday of Chanukah next week, the emphasis is not on
military might but on the moral stature of Judaism and the
fight for its survival as one of the great ideas of civilization.
The Maccabeans fought for more than their land or
their lives. Antiochus was not so much intent on the physi-
cal destruction of the Jews as on the destruction of their
religious ideas their Judaism. Rededication of the Tem-
ple is whet we actually commemorate this next week, and
behind the lights, the latkes and the gifts lies the call to a
rededication to Judaism and the Jewish people a religion
and a people as vital as it was in 165 B.C.E.
Statement Sets Record Straight
The Synagogue Council has laid to rest, once and for
all we hope, the belief that Judaism cannot embrace con-
scientious objection. While it is true that we are not a paci-
fist faith, the Council recently informed at Selective Service
System's head that the possibility of developing objection
to war, based on the interpretation of the moral imperatives
of Jewish traditions, is, in fact a valid one.
Judaism has always recognized that war can be an
unavoidable necessity and, thus, has never been considered
a pacifist faith. Jewish C.O.'s, as a result, have almost al-
ways had their applications rejected automatically because
of this. The statement by the Synagogue Council, which
is the coordinating agency for the six national synagogal
and rabbinical organizations of Orthodox, Conservative
and Reform Judaism, sets the record straight finally.
The Jew has been taught from earliest youth that war
is dehumanizing and that the search for peace is con-
stant. If most are ready to fight and die, necessary, to pre-
serve their religion and their nation, that comes within the
'.radition. But, as the Council points out, Jewish religious
iaw also makes specific provision for the exemption of
those who have moral objection to fighting.
Relief Agency Near Collapse
UNRWA, the international relief agency which has
been the major support of the Arab refugees, is near col-
lapse because of lack of funds to continue its humanitarian
work. The United States and other western democracies
have been the major supporters of UNRWA but, over the
past few years, have cut down on their contributions.
It should not go unnoted that the Soviet Union, which
has sent billions of dollars in arms to the Arab nations, has
never sent one kopeck to assist the refugees. No other
comment seems necessary.
An Ironic Twist
Two years after the anti-Semitic purges of 1968. the
Polish government shared in the building of a new Jewish

Clearly the most clangorous prob-
lem to arise since World War
II Basically, th.' simple military
factors are far worse than those
in the Cuban missile crisis.
On the straight military si.le.
the problem is so frightening be-
cause it is essentially open-end-
od To see what this means, you
need only suppose that in- canal-
crossing is attempted tor which
the Soviets ar< now actively pre-
paring the Egyptians. ,
the soviet general staff
possiblv contemplate putting the
Egyptian tanks and infantry
across the Suez Canal without
giving the Egyptians the advan-
tage of air supremacy. The book j
says that in a tank battle in
the desert the side having air
supremacy is bound to win. The
Soviet planners unquestionably
believe the book.
That means a battle in Sinai I
between the Israeli and Egyp-
tian armored forces. But there
will also have to be large num-
bers of Russian-flown planes
overhead to give the Egyptian ,
tanks the help that the book
The needed Soviet air rein-
forcements have not yet turned
up in Egypt. But it will take
alnfMt no time to send them.
And the current canal-crossing
preparations make no sense at
all unless Soviet air reinforce-
ments are also scheduled even-
SO WHAT will happen then?
The Israelis confidently believe
that their magnificent armored
forces can write a new chapter
in the book by smashing the
Egyptians despite air suprem-
acy on the other side. Probably
they are right. But if they are
right, the Soviets quite certain-
ly stop there.
In other words, after vastly
increasing the Soviet commit-
ment once again, they cannot
accept another fearful defeat
for their Arab clients. They will
have to step up their commit-
I ment still further. In order to
I smash the Israelis. In their Mas-
I ada-like mood, the Israelis are
I then likely to use their weap-
I ons-of-last-resortwhich are al-
most certainly small numbers of
smaller nuclear bombs.
After that, what will be the
outcome? The answer is all but
unbearable to calculate. But at
least the foregoing ought to sug-
gest the very ugly meaning of
the phrase "open-ended."
THE GRAND objective must
therefore be to prevent this hid-
eous process frcm getting Part-
ed at all. If started in deadly
earnest, it can hardly be stop-
ped, except perhaps by a Soviet-
American confrontation that will
make the Cuban missile crisis
look like a children's tea tarty.
Right here, however, one en-
counters what can only be called
the missing pieces in the puz7lc.
In considerable measure, the
first missing piece Is the fault
of the Israelis. There can be no
reasonably reliable prevention
without a concerted American-
Israeli military policy. But there
ean be no concerted mi lit a rv
policy without an agreed politi-
cal position This means agree-
ment of some sort on Israel's fu-

tiers. The near-hmatie politics)
system makes this kind of po'iti-

New YORK Two besieged men have come to Washington,
separated by a few days King Hussein of Jordan and Moshe
Dayan of Israel. iThe dictates of policy seem to require President
Nixon to always invite Arab and Israeli leaders like the ani-
mals in Noah's Ark two by two I.
Each has a dramatic personal history, and each has put his;
life on the line a number of times and has survived. But what
interests me more is that while the leaders of the Great Powers-
are relatively colorless (note Nixon, Brezhnev, Pompidou, Heath.
Sato, all except Mao1, it is the smaller nations that produce the
more vivid leaders.
There may Ik- several reasons for this. To be the head of a
monster power mass means to walk a tightrope constantly, lest
a blunder in word or decision upset the whole vast structure. It
is also true that the big nations have become leviathans, unrun-
nable. unmanageable, with deeply discordant elements that have
to b.^ kept from falling apart.
The smaller nations, especially those that have emerged
through liberation struggles, have a wider margin of tolerance
for the colorful leader and u greater psychic need for a com-

AMONG THE fulfill 1TT NATION'S, one can sort the
strong leaders into three groups. One is the regime of the sur-
viving kingship i Hussein and H.iile Selassie are the best re-
maining examples i. A second is the civilian founding father
"Kenyatta, Bourguiba, Nyerere, Toure, Castro). A third is the
military authoritarian leader, with Kemal Ataturk and Nasser
as the type figures in the past and with new ones cropping up.
especially in regimes like Bolivia and Peru's.
All three of them the lcader-as-klng, the leader-ai-
founding-father and the leader-with-a-sword are operations in
personal rule, whether right, left or moderate. Jean Lacouture.
who has done a couple of good biographies of De Gaulle and of
Ho Chi Minn, has a new book on Third World leaders, "The
Demigods." The four men he studies are Nasser, Nkrumah
Sihanouk and Bourguiba.
So swiftly do regimes succeed each other in this Third World
that one of the four men has died, two have been deposed and
languish in exile and only Bourguiba holds onto power. But La-
couture is right in insisting that it is charisma the magic touch
of drama and authority that counts mossag the small nations of
the Third World.

'France Will Support Any

PARIS (JTA) France's
President Georges Pompidou, in
an address delivered before a
luncheon honorim? King. Hussein
of Jordan at the Elysee Palace,
pledged that France will sup-
port any political move which
would reactivate the stalled
Jarring peace talks. He warned
that the absence of a Middle
East settlement would seriously
endanger the situation in that
region and said that France will
seek to foster a BoHH1 settle-
ment based on the U.N. Security
Council's Resolution 242.

Italy too is benefitting, the
Times said. Its major oil sources
have been the fields in Libya and
the Trans-Arabian Pipeline (Tap-

from those sources have been
severely cut back owing to a

the Suez Canal was to re-open
the Israelis pipeline would be
bankrupt overnight. "The con-
clusion must be that Israeland
increasingly the giants of the
oil worlddo not expect the

SYNOPSIS OF THE WEEKLY TORAH PORTION
"And Jacob dwelt in the land of his father's sojournings ."
JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS Jacob's youngest son
was Joseph, the son of his okl age, and he made him a coat of
colors, in those days worn only by men of distinction. His
brothers' jealousy was aroused and increased when Joseph re-
counted two dreams. In the first, his brothers' sheave* bowed
down to his sheaf standing upright in their midst. In the second,
the sun, moon and eleven stars bowed down to him. The implica-
tions were that all the members of his family would become sub-
ordinate to him and although his father rebuked him, he noted
the significance of the dreams. While the brothers were tending
the flock in Dothan, a place near Shechem, Jacob sent Joseph
to see how they were faring. The brothers seeing him in the dis-
tance, conspired to kill him, throw his body into a pit and then
declare that he had been eaten by a wild beast. Reuben inter-
vened and persuaded the others to cast Joseph into the pit alive,
with the intention of saving him when the others had departed.
When Joseph reached them, they stripped him of his coat of
many colors and threw him into the pit. A caravan of Ishmael-
ites bringing spices from Gilead to Egypt was seen in the dis-
tance, and the idea occurred to Judah that they sell Joseph into
slavery rather than he responsible for his death.
JOSEPH IN PRISON Potiphar, highly satisfied with
Joseph's service, appointed him overseer of his household. Joseph
rejected the advances of Potiphar's wife, who thereupon accused
him of an outrage. He was thrown into prison, but soon won
favour with the governor and was put in charge of the other
prisoners. Two royal officers, the chief butler and the chief baker,
had offended the King and were in custody pending their trial.
Both had a dream which Joseph interpreted as fore-warnings of
the fate which awaited them. The chief butler's dream that he
pressed grapes growing on a three-branched vine into Pharoah's
cup meant that he would bo restored to his office in three days.
Joseph requested the butler to intercede for him before Pharoah
and secure his release from prison. The baker's dream of birds
pecking bread from the uppermost of three baskets he carried
on his head meant, said Joseph, that he would hang within three
days. The interpretations were realized as Joseph had foretold,
but the chief butler forgot Joseph.

Dr. Feingold, an asslstCQtl professor of history, in
Ibis learned and well-written treatise, whites 'The rea-
cue slory is replete with examples of indifference, sabo-
tagfl of lescue initiative, and seeming compliance with
the goals of the Final Solution." Despite the friendship
of Rabbi Stephen S. Wise and many other Jews with
F.D.R. between 1938 and 1943, Jews were miserable
failures in influencing of rescue ground rules "and that
failure proved catastrophic."
Those familiar with the prayer-book are familiar
with al tivteku ben divim," put not your trust in princes.
Too often Jews have deceived themselves that they had
the ear of a ruler because there were Jews in his Cabinet
or as close advisorsthe modern form of the court Jews
of earlier centuries. Samuel Roseman. Bernard Baruch.
Henry Morgenthau and many other Jews filled the role
of officials and intimates ot the Administration and con
fidants of F.D.R. Never did so many accomplish so littk-
for their co-religionists.
Feingold report! that Roosevelt's speech writer.
Samuel Roseman, "a prominent member of the American
Jewish Committee was no believer in mass resettle-
ment" and that he said, "I do not believe that it is either
desirable or practicable to recommend any change in the
quota provision of our immigration Laws." Other Jews
were peripheral to Judaism. Morgenthau didn't begin to
take an active interest until 1943. The author believes
that if the Jewish advisors had spoken out forthrightly
70,000 Rumanian Jews and thousands of others could
have been saved.
Feingold gives no single answer to the question: "Why
was the rescue of Jews given such a low priority and to
what extent were those opposed to ncue able to use the
argument of wartime exigencies as an excuse to do noth-
ing?" He states that The priorities established by the
Roosevelt Administration were for national survival and
victory and the rescue ot the Jews would be considered
only if it could be accommodated to these priorities."
Even before we entered the war, the non-belligerent
U.S.A. had more rigid screening procedures for refugees
than Britain, who had been at war for almost two years.

Jews, Breckinridge utng of the State Department, the

| ird Law School and women labor
leaders like Mrs. Myva K. Wolf-
gang of Detroit whose testimony
in opposition to the proposal replaced much of the
heat with considerable light.
Paul Freund will be proved correct in his con-
tention that the equal protection clause of the 14th
Amendment, together with the commerce clause of
the Constitution and the equal employment oppor-
tunity section of the 19H4 Civil Rights Act are all
the instrumentalities necessary for ending discrim-
ination based on sex. Mrs. Wolfgang's warning that
passage of the amendment would negate hundreds
of laws protecting women at work undoubtedly will
also prove of great importance.
In the end. we shall come to see that the agita-
tion for the Amendment is of much more signifi-
cance than the Amendment per se. It is right and
proper for women to shake off the chains forged
against them by seductive advertising claims, the
kidding by hard hats and other such, and man's
headstart in the marketplace. Once their anger has
poured out, women will be in position to earn equal
pay for equal-effort. New vocational avenues will
open before them. And above all the old chib-
boleths and snares which have long blocked their
way to full realization of human potential will be
In all modem American discussions about mi-
norities, few realize that females are in actuality
the true majority. To their credit, they have eschew-
ed silence. But the rights they shall win through
irrefutable assertions, rather than uproar and
noise, will be what really matters in the end.

An Electronic Cold Cure?
CROM ISRAEL comes what ap-
pears to be a momentous
story but little attention has been
Jpaid to it. It is
the story of an
The original -
of the cure,
(ccording to th-'
.ire Dr. Mana -
hem Rem. of the
Rothschild Hospital and Dr. Eld II
Schwartz of the Haifa Technion.
The two scientists, theorizing that
the human body is organized much
like a computer, base their cure on
its "feed back" principle. They ex-
expect to be in Washington to pre-
sent their findings at a medical
convention next summer.
If the story is true and Israel
can collect royalties on the inven-
tion, she should be able maybe to
give the United States a loan, in-
td of trying to get one from
the United states. Every day dur-
ing tl;e winter months, at least
5C0 million people are meeting
n 1 coughing m New York and
Chicago, and even Peking. This is
nothing to be sneesed at.
The scientist! of the world for
centuries have sought a cure for
a cold They can combat pneu-
monia, but they have never b?cn
able to really come up with any-
thing to tackle the common cold.
The best they can do is to tell us
to take some aspirins, go to bed
and rest and wait for the cold to
retire in its good time.
There are some who think that
a glass of Old Hennessy is the best
thing for a eoldt (Ii doesn't cure
the cold, but it helps people to
bear up when they nave one.) If
an electronic machine can be made
to cire a cold, aerhapi on- can
be made also which will give us
the Old Hennessy feeling generally.
