Of Allocations Committee
Ross P. Beckerman, treasurer of
Jewish Welfare Federation and a
member of its executive commit-
tee. has been named chairman of
its Allocation Committee for the
current year. Mr. Beckerman has
long been active in the work of
the Allocation Committee of JWF
and in Federation campaigns.
The Allocations division includes
the Local Allocation Committee,
the National Allocation Commit-
tee and the Overseas Allocation
Committee. An innovation this
year is the creation of a Budget
Committee headed by Herbert D.
Katz, also a member of JWF's
executive committee. The func-
tion of this newly-formed commit-
tee will be to analyze the budget-
ary needs of JWF and its cam-
paign. Committee members are
chosen from people who are ac-
tive in Federation.
Members of the Allocations Com-
mittees as announced by Mr. Beck-
erman are as follows:
Local Allocation Committee
Dr. Sheldon Willens. chairman,
Mark Fried, James Jacobson, Dr.
Rubin Klein, Dr. Alex Kobb, James
Fox Miller, Paul Nestel, Max
Sloans, Mrs. Philip Weinstein, Jr.
and Dr. Howard Berman.
National Allocations Committee

AJCommittee Reelecls
Philip E. Hoffman
NEW YORK The American
Jewish Committee, concluding its
65th annual meeting here, re-
elected attorney Philip E. Hoff-
man, chairman of the Executive
Committee of U.S. Realty and In-
vestment Co., to a third term as
head of this country's pioneer hu-
man relations organization.
At the same time, the Commit-
tee reelected Max M. Fisher, of
Detroit, chairman of its Execu-
tive Council; New York attorney
David Sher, chairman of its Board
of Governors: and Elmer L. Win-
ter, of Milwaukee, chairman of its
Board of Trustees.
The AJCs president, a distin-
guished communal and civic fig-
ure, played a prominent role at
the recent World Conference of
Jewish Communities on Soviet
Jewry in Brussels.
ray Smithline, Dr. David Glass-
man, David Goodman, Dr. Alex
Buchwald, Ira Laurence Hunter,
Dr. Samuel Meline and Mrs. Myrna
Overseas Allocation Committee
Robert Baer, chairman, Lewis
Cohen, Rabbi David Shapiro, Sam
J. Perry, Joseph Kleiman, Dr.
Norman Landman and Joseph L.
Each of these committees will
meet as necessary to analyze and
appraise the needs of the various
agencies under consideration as
beneficiaries of Federation based
on factual material supplied to
members of each committee. Each
agency is studied in depth using
material assembled from the agen-
cy itself and from the Council of
Jewish Federation and Welfare
Funds. Each committee's sugges-
tions and recommendations are
then studied by the Final Allo-
cation Committee before they are
acted upon.
With this careful appraisal of
the program, needs and services
to the local community of the vari-
ous agencies, it is possible for
Federation to make a careful and
thoughtful distribution of the
monies donated to them. Commit-
tee meetings will take place during
May and June; allocations are ex-
pected to be completed by the first
of July.
All Divisions Working
To Wind Up Campaign
The 1971 Combined Campaign of
Jewish Welfare Federation of
Greater Hollywood undar the lead-
ership of Jesse J. Martin, cam-
paign chairman, is continuing with
all divisions working to wind up
their portion of the drive.
Phone calls, however, are still
being made at this date. A num-
ber of volunteer workers still have
pledge cards to cover and turn in
although the campaign totals have
already surpassed last year's.
Speaking of the ongoing effort
Michael Ruvel, executive director
of Federation, made the following
"As this time of the year rolls
around, it becomes difficult to
engender enthusiasm among cam-
paign workers. Those last remain-
ing pledge cards and those last
few phone calls become a burden
to many of us. No longer do we
have the excitement of the big
meetings, the interest in the cam-
paign post appointments, the social
aspects of getting together after
a quiet summer.
"All these things have faded in-
to the pleasant memories of a
successful campaign but realistic-
ally we must know that we are
not finished yet. Week after week
we read of the increased needs of
Israel. Our allocation committee
meetings, which are even now
taking place, call to our attention
once again the necessity of sup-
porting our local and national
agencies. We know we cannot let
any of our beneficiaries down.
"So it is with this in mind that
we must continue to work dili-
gently. We must cover all those
pledge cards. We must make all
those phone calls. We must con-
sider every new possibility. We all
must make renewed efforts to
bring this campaign to a sucees-
ful fruition and have the satiefac-
tion of knowing that this was the
very best in campaigns and the
very best we could do."
Adopt UJA
100 Pet. Plan
than 100 synagogues around the
nation have adopted the "100%
Plan," which calls for a contribu-
tion to the United Jewish Appeal
as a prerequisite for synagogue
membership, according to Rabbi
Dudley Weinberg, chairman of the
UJA Rabbinical Advisory Council.
The plan was initiated and its
adoption has been encouraged by
the Council in the belief that it is
inconceivable for an American
Jew to participate in the spiritual
activities of the synagogue with-
out expressing a commitment to-
ward his follow Jews in need,
Rabbi Weinberg said.
"The act of giving is a funda-
mental precept in our religious
tradition," he continued. "Further-
more, giving to the UJA is the
active fulfillment of the mitzvot
(religious demands) of Pidyon
Sh'vuyim (redemption of those in
captivity) and Pikuach Nefesh
(preservation of human life). The
purpose of the "100% Plan' is to
remind every Jew who is a syna-
gogue member of his additional
responsibility for the continued
existencce of the Jewish people."
The "100% Plan," initiated at
the beginning of the year, is hav-
ing a definite impact on 1971 cam-
paign results. Because of its suc-
cess, the Council is urging its
adoption in synagogues through-
out the country.
"Both as rabbis and as strong
supporters of the UJA, we feel
that this is a matter which will
demand great effort but will reap
great rewards," Rabbi Weinberg

Prof Zand's
Exit Visa
Is Revoked
TEL AVIV (JTA)The exit
visa issued to Soviet Jewish
scholar and activist Prof. Mik-
hail Zand last week was revoked
before he could reach home with
it, it has been reported.
Dr. Zand told the newspaper
Maariv by telephone that after
he received his visa he rushed to
the Dutch Consulate which han-
dles Israeli affairs in Moscow te
obtain his Israeli papers and
visited the Austrian legation for
a transit visa and the local air-
line office for reservations. He
was enroute home when he
heard the authorities were look-
ing for him and returned to the
visa office.
Dr. Zand, who said he had sold
all his possessions in anticipa-
tion of his departure for Israel,
was told that his exit permit was
revoked because of complaints
he had engaged in undesirable
activities and had contacts with
foreigners as well as many vis-
itors in his flat, and that the
reports would be investigated.

Gift To Wexler
WASHINGTON (JTA) Enrollment of 10,000 new members
is the "going away" gift being planned by the B'nai B'rith Mem-
bership Cabinet for Dr. William A. Wexler when he retires in
October as international president of B'nai B'rith. Philip M. Klutz-
nick, international president of B'nai B'rith from 1953-59 and now
heading a special "Honor Bill Wexler Committee," said the special
campaign will continue until Oct. 13, the 128th anniversary of B'nai
B'rith and the opening day of its triennial convention in Philadel-
phia. Klutznick described the 10.000-mcmber tribute as a "mean-
ingful acknowledgement to Bill Wexler that his six years at the
hub in a turbulent period of unusual challenge to Jewish life
are a record of wise effort and much fulfillment."
Israel Bond Employees Strike
NEW YORK (JTA) Some 450 employees of the Israel Bond
Organization have gone out on strike in a dispute over a new con-
tract. The strike by members of Local 1707. Community and Social
Agency Employees, which affects 60 Bond Organization offices
throughout the country, began Friday midnight when the old con-
tract expired. Efforts by both sides to avert a walkout failed after
nine hours of bargaining at the office of the State Mediation Board.
The State agency's intervention had been requested by the Bor.d
Organization with the approval of the union.
I A I. Denies Boycott
NEW YORK (WNS) Japan Air Lines has for the second time
denied that it is participating in a boycott of Israel. And for the
second time the Conference of President of Major Jewish Organiza-
tions has rejected the JAL statement as false. Arnold Forster.
general counsel to the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith and
head of the Conference of Presidents' anti-boycott committee, called
the JAL statement "a flat lie."

Anti-Defamation League
The Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, a beneficiary of Jew-
ish Welfare Federation, is one of
the oldest human rights organiza-
tions in America. Its effectiveness
il legendary for it has been in ex-
istence nearly 60 years.
Its 1913 original Charter shows
that its immediate object was to
battle anti-Semitism. But the
Charter also specifies that its ul-
timate purpose is to secure justice
and fair treatment for all citizens
alike. It is thus in the vanguard
or organizations working to help
all groups victimized by bigotry
and unfair discrimination.
Organizations in the Jewish
community working to preserve
human rights on all fronts would
include the American Jewish Com-
mittee, American Jewish Congress,
Jewish War Veterans, Jewish La-
| bor Committee and many others.
The Anti-Defamation League
has found through the years that
its most successful tools are pub-
lic exposure and education.
Through their ADL Bulletin they
disseminate information to nearly
200.000 individual subscribers, to
local newspapers and to TV sta-
An example of the effectiveness
of their methods was their part
in the so-called unmasking of the
Ku Klux Klan in the 1920's. The
KKK's announced objective was to
preserve "the Caucasian race"
from the "contaminating inter-
mixture of alien races." It ter-
rorized blacks, Jews, Catholics
and others that it considered "con-
taminants." Its power dependedly
partly on its secrecy. Prominent
men and women could belong with-
out having to reveal that they
were members.
The Anti-Defamation League,
long with other organizations
Fighting for civil rights, actively
dug out and published members
names. It was also instrumental in
getting laws passed in many lo-
calities forbidding people to appear
in public places wearing masks,
xposure, plus the ADL's publi-
izing of the bigotry implied in
he KKK platform caused the KKK
o virtually "sink from sight."
The Anti-Defamation League ha?
also been involved in the study of
prejudice and has given grants to
research institutions and univer-
sities to ascertain the causes of
ejudice. In general from the re-
kilts of these surveys it has been

shown that overt anti-Jewish dis-
crimination is at low ebb now
partly because of laws, and partly
because rt is Yio longer fastrionabie
to be anti-Semitic.
The Anti-Defamation League
feels that the roots are still there,
however, and that about a third
of the population still has a nega-
tive image of Jews. Therefore,
ADL is still on the alert and un-
fortunately will probably always
have to be.

Soviet Reaction The Big Question
In the volatile atmosphere of the Middle East, any-
thing can happen and it usually does. The dramatic
events in Egypt which, as this is written, seem to establish
Sadat in the strong-man role held so many years by
Gamal Nasser, will have long-range impact on the future
of that troubled area of the world.
It is obviously too soon to predict with certainty Sa-
dat's next moves, but if the recent past is any precedent
one can hope for a changed atmosphere in the negotiations
for a settlement with Israel. One can hardly divide Arab
leadership into "hawk" and "dove" but the best reports
would indicate that in firing most of his original Cabinei
ministers, Sadat also got rid of the Moscow-oriented hard-
liners. If this can be viewed as a positive good, the big
question may very well be the Soviet reaction to the shifts
in lineup and, in the next weeks, give a clue to Sadat's
ability to survive.
At the very least, the drama in Cairo last week main-
tains the cease-fire, unofficial though it may be, and gives
greater time to work out the counter-proposals made by
Israel on the issue of re-opening the Suez Canal as the first
step toward negotiating for peace.
Not to be ignored as the top diplomats concentrate on
the question of the Canal is the issue of Jerusalem; there
are signs that King Hussein, more secure than he has ever
been since the 1967 war. is ready to flex his little muscles
over the Holy City. Some of Hussein's statements are obvi-
ously being made to prove that he is still there. There is no
doubt that Jerusalem is an important problem, as are the
Golan Heights, Sharm el-Sheikh, the Sinai, and all the
other territories held by Israel after its '67 victory.
But it is Egyptian leadership which must be reckoned
with., ultimately, in reaching accommodation with the Arab
nations, and the priority of the Suez Canal at the present
stage will not be changed by the urge for recognition from
across the Jordan.
Illusions Stripped Away
A mutual interest in "brotherhood" has brought Meir
Kahane of the Jewish Defense League and Joseph Colombo
of the Italian-American Civil Rights League together, follow-
ing Kahane's most recent arrest on charges of interstate
transportation of guns and explosives.
While we doubt that the impact of that alliance will
hare the same effect on the world as when Molotov em-
braced von Ribbentrop as a "blood brother," any illusions
that still continue about the Jewish Defense League's
leader must be stripped away by this alliance between
Kahane and the notorious underworld chieftain.
The overwhelming majority of Jews and Italians will
hare little to do with these organizations which misrepre-
sent the ideals and aspirations of the ethnic groups whose
names they so dishonor. The communications media might
do well to assess the standing of these organizations in
their own communities and recognize that they are not
worth all the space devoted to their activities.
Clue To Age-Old Question
This may offer a clue to the age-old question of which
came first: the chicken or the egg? Eleven graduates who
received their doctorates from the Brandeis University
School of Near Eastern and Judaic Studies are teaching
courses in Judaiea in institutions here and in Canada and
those studies began, coincidentally. with the arrival of
the scholars.
den ironies of Secretary William
Rosens' mission to the troubled
Middle East are hardly possible
to exaggerate. To begin with,
the wisest handicappers give the
secretary a rather better than
even chance to "succeed" in
which case everyone in this coun-
try will burst into loud and hap-
py cheers.
Success, in this instance, will
mean securing Israeli-Egyptian
agreement, after further Middle-
Eastern bargaining, on what is
known as the "interim solution."
The interim solution will involve
some degree of military pullback
from the banks of the Suez Ca-
nal, followed by reopening of the
canal to traffic.
ik this result is attained, it
will offer I he Israelis a long and
rather reliable cease-fire on their
most dang nous front, with the
Egyptians. No one in his senses,
after all. would waste a great
deal of time and money on re-
opening the canal, without a
strong desire to use the canal
thereafter. And you cannot very
well use a canal which is in the
very midst of a war zone.
Right here, however, is the
first and biggest irony lurking
behind the Rogers mission to
the Middle East. If the secretary
secures agreement on the so-
called interim solution, he will
mainly do so because of the in-
tense Soviet desire to reopen
the canal and to use it.
The Egyptian or other Arab
gain from the interim solution
will be downright trifling, com-
pared to the Soviet gain. In
truth, the fair prospects for this
solution are a simnle measure
of the enormous leverage that
the Soviets now possess in Egypt.
THE SOVIET gain can also
l>e simply measured. The reopen-
ing of the Suez Canal will auto-
matically multiply by a factor
of at least four, and perhaps
even more than that, the Soviet
naval power in the Red Sea and
the Indian Ocean. The multipli-
cation will be automatic because
of the immense shortening of all
distances for the Soviet, navy.
A big base now building at
Port Sudan; another base on the
Socotra Islands: a kind of proto-
base on the island. Mauritius:
secret negotiations now in prog-
ress with the government of
Ceylon, for use of the great na-
val base at Trinconialee these
should be proof enough of the in-
tensity of the Soviet desire to be
able to deploy important naval
oower in the Indian Ocean and
the Red Sea.
The prize the Soviets are
reaching for in this area is not
in doubt, either. The British arc
leaving the Persian Gulf, which
is shortly due to become a total
power-vacuum. The Persian Gulf
Ls like a great tap. tumable off
or on. that controls most of the
world's oil. A great extension of
Soviet naval power is now need-
ed, in sum. to get the world oil-
tap into Soviet hands.
AS TO THE second great Ir-
ony lurking behind the Rogers
mission, it is also rather simple.
In brief, the Israelis seem to be
almost uniquely aware of the.
enormous risks of the enormous
extension of Soviet naval power
that may now be in prospect.
The Western Europeans could
hardly care less. This country
appears to b equally unworried,
despite the frightful unset of the
world bil.inee lhat will prompt-
ly result if the Soviets ever get
their hands on the world oil-tap.
The Israelis, in contrast, are
very i nrricd. The defense
minister, Gen. Moshe Dayan,
was Hi" first man in Israel to
e out in public for the in-
lerin i. Rut when he did
so, he also passed the word that
he would withdrew his sugges-
tion I itely, if the U.S.
government objected to the re-

opening of the Suez Canal.
There was no answer to Da-
yan. There was no answer,
either, to Dayan's cabinet col-
league and political rival, Yigal
Allon, when he made the same
point in Washington some weeks
ago. In Jerusalem, again, the
point was raised with Secretary
Rogci'S with some bluntness.
Yet the American negotiators
continued to press for the in-
terim solution.
THERE ARE two reasons for
this buarre situation, in which
the Israelis have shown more
concern than the Americans
for vital American interests. The
first reason is that the Israelis
are not victims of the popular
American delusion that the So-
\iets have somehow changed

Sees It
The nature of politics is struggle, and the nature of struggle
is to divide all life into two parts on any issue for and against.
Watching the recent antiwar demonstrations one got the im-
pression that there were only two attitudes toward the Viet-
namese war: Nixon's and anti-Nixon's. This isn't true. There
are several major positions aside from Nixon's, and while they
may merge with each other in the opinion polls it makes for
murky thinking to lump them together.
For clarity, let's say that there are four moods on the war.
I call one group the Maximalists, a second the Minimalists, a
third the Get Outers and a fourth the All Outers. Let me de-
scribe each position and why its champions take it
I CALL. THE NIXON position Maximalist, in the sense that
the President is determined to maximize the terms he can get --
at Paris or elsewhere from the peace negotiations. He knows
the war cannot be won, but he refuses to concede that it is lost.
He will have to get the American ground forces out before the
1972 presidential conventions, but he means to keep as many
other forces on the scene, in noncombat roles, as he can get away
with. He has one eye on the 1972 elections and the other on his
place in history, which will depend (he feels) on how the United
States handles the aftereffects of the war, both in Asia and in
America. He could win the first (the elections* and lose the
second (his place In history!, but he is gambling on being able to
scrape by with both.
The Minimalists, on the other hand, have pretty much
written off the chance of saving anything out of the peace ne-
gotiations. They will be content with the minimal terms a
"political settlement" in the form of a coalition government
in which the Communists are bound to dominate. Although 6ome
of them are convinced that Ho Chi Mlnh was a Tito figure and
that Hanoi leaders will be independent of both Peking and
Moscow, most of them are realist enough to know that their
solution will leave the United States powerless to influence
events in Southeast Asia.
THE "OET OUTERS" ARE just what their name de-
scribes: They want to get out period. Nixon has a withdrawal
date in mind at which time the ground forces will be out, but
refuses for tactical reasons to tie himself to it publicly. The
Minimalists, who include most liberal Democrats and a number
of Republicans, want to set a definite date, both for American
home-front opinion and to win the confidence of the other side.
it even they don't want the United States to get o*t to-
morrow, abruptly. The Get Outers do, and they express the mood
of many if not most of the demonstrators. They don't care about
the consequences or costs, because they feel that the war has
already cost too much, that it is intolerable and an obscenity,
and that the only thing to do is to break away clean. They take
a moral position, not a political one.
THE "ALL OUTERS" FEEL that, like Christianity, the
war has not failed, because it has never been really pursued,
whether by Eisenhower, Kennedy. Johnson or Nixon. In their
own way they are as alienated about it as the Get Outers. They
feel about it much as the French right did about Indochina and
Algeria, and much as the German right felt about the "stab in
the back" in World War I.
The practical political struggle is between the first tsro
the Maximalists and Minimalists, roughly, between Nixon's po-
sition [or Sen. Henry Jackson (D-Wash.) 1 and Sen. Htauind
Muskie's (D-Me.) or Sen. Edward Kennedy's (D-Mass.). It is
wrong to say, as Rep. Sam Stratton (D-N.Y.) said the other
day, that the difference doesn't amount to much: On the nature
of an acceptable peace treaty and our post-war policies the dis-
tance between the two is real. But I should agree that it is un-
likely to be a crucial campaign issue in 1972. The issues will be
domestic: inflation, the esonomy, unemployment, what to de
about welfare, the collapsing cities.
BUT NIXON CANT AFFORD to ignore the fourth group
the All Outers who are the fanatic fringe on the right, The
response to the Calley case showed how much rroub*. they
can make both to him and the nation once their stab-in-the-back
theory takes hold.
The presidential Democrats, on their side, can't aMflrrd to
ignore the third group, the Get Outers, whose single purpose
conceals some real differences among them.Many of them are
genuinely fed up with the war, and want to get it over with,
right away. This small group hates the war, yes, but they would
not hate it so much if they didn't hate the American brand of
democracy even more.

Witch-Hunt A Major Blunder,
Czech Party Leader Confesses
There is one thing Communist
ruJers have in common with ad-
herents of Christian religions
v.' _>m. otherwise, they do not hold
in high esteem: They are inclined
t confess past mistakes to seek
aoolution not from God, but from
the morv.' worldly hierarchy of
! :r political party which, next
t' Lenin, rules supreme over their
^. ritual life. As against other
creeds, such confessions are hardly
ever made voluntarily.
."t becomes all the more sur-
pr.-ing that Dr. Gustav Hus ik,
leaier of the Czechoslovak Com-
munist Party, should recently
wiihout apparent pressure from
the party apparatus, have con-
fessed in public a major blunder occurred during the last
few months: The witch-hunt or-
ganized from Prague against the
70.000 Czech fugitives who left the
country during the "Spring of
Prague' in 1968 for the West or
St eyed abroad when Warsaw Pact
troops marched into Czevhoslo-
var:ia in the summer of the same
y< rr.
Among the 70.000 who include
er estimated 5,000 Jews were
a good many who tried to regular-
ize their leg;al positions vis-a-vis
th- Czech authorities in 1968-C9.
Th-y were encouraged in their
decision (0 stay out of the coun-
try by the liberal attitude of the
ernments of the time whieh
did not seem concerned with the
ruj'i-of-the-mill emigrant although
these politically exposed under the
Dv.bcek regime came under heavy
fire The encouragement came from
among others a Premier of
the period who advised Czechs to
"stay out and to get out" after the
Rvssians had marched in.
The scene changed towards the
en^ of 1969 when Czechoslovak
Embassies abroad were instructed
tc refuse renewal of exit visas and
passports. In the autumn of that
year, President Svoboda proclaimed
ar> 'amnesty' for those 'illegally
abroad" which lapsed on December
31, 1969. Since then, Czech emi-
grants have enjoyed the hospital-
ity and the protection usually
given to foreign residents in West-
ern countries. Of the Jews, most
found new gainful employment:
others started or continued their
studies, financed by their countries
of refuge and by a number of na-

Turning of Screw
. In the autumn of 1970. the screw
I against emigrants was turned. A
blackmailing campaign against 'il-
legal emigrants' started from
: Prague and other major cities.
Refugees in European countries.
] Great Britain and the Common-
wealth, the United States and Is-
rael routed for lack of diplo-
I matic relations via the Czechoslo-
I vak Embassy in Nicosia. Cyprus
1 were notified that criminal pro-
! ceedings had been started against
them. Communications, involving
para 109/2 of the Czech criminal
code, were not in the shape of
court orders but were issued by
the 'Lawyers Advice Bureau.' the
equivalent of a Solicitor's Collec-
tive, at the last place of residence
of the refugee.
Emigrants were told that they
were facing imprisonment rang-
ing from six months to five years;
confiscation of their dwellings and
other assets; forfeiture of their
social insurance rights and salary
or wage claims. At the same time,
a member of the 'Lawyers Advice
Bureau' offered his services as de-
fense counsel. The legal fee stipu-
lated ranged up to 60 pounds, pay-
able in foreign currency within a
given time limit.
First impression in the West was
that the Communist rulers in
Prague were looking for an inex-
pensive way of obtaining foreign
currency. However, it soon be-
came clear that this could not
possibly be the sole consideration.
Even if all those who left the coun-
try in 1968-69 were to have paid
up, foreign exchange thus obtained
would have been in the region of
5.2 million pounds.
Experts of the Czech scene ex-
pressed doubts that the regime
would be going out of its way for
such a paltry sum at the risk of
alienating still further those who
are buying goods from Czecho-
slovakia, provide a substantial part
of her tourist trade, participate in
trade fairs and technical exchanges
and provide the public for Czech
cultural events in Western capitals.
Secret Police
They were soon to be proved
right: Reports out of Prague
brought evidence that there was
more to it than the desire for
foreign exchange. A fully-fledged
political campaign had been set
in motion, including the relatives
of those who had left the country.
They were visited by members of
the secret police who hinted that
they would be held to ransom for
legal fees not paid up abroad; that
these might be deducted from their
pension payments, where applica-
ble, and that they were in danger
of losing their occupations If fugi-
tives abroad failed to comply with
the demands.
It was at this stage that the
Council of Jews from Czechoslo-
vakia' in London moved on behalf
of Jewish emigrants affected. A
voluntary organization represent-
Leningrad Trial Moves
Into Judges9 Chambers
ing British and Commonwealth
Jews of Czech origin, it drew the
attention of the Foreign and Com-
monwealth office, of the Board of
Deputies of British Jews and other '
Jewish organizations to the new
situation which had arisen. It al warned Jewish emigres not to'
lose their nerve, to disregard the
blackmailing campaign and to seek I
advice from the authorities in their
countries of residence.
In mid-February, the witch-hunt i
from Prague suddenly stopped. A |
few days later, Dr. Gustav Husak
addressed a worker's meeting at <
Pardubice in Bohemia. He devoted
some time to those who were
fabricating horror stories' about
Czechoslovakia abroad, and then
turned to the witch-hunt.
"I Had No Idea"
"During recent weeks," he said,
"there was an enormout campaign
in connection with some lawyers
sending letters abroad to our emi-
gres asking money from them.
This gave birth to an attack
against Czechoslovakia for alleg-
edly blackmailing the emigres and
their families and heaven knows
what else. It was an enormous
campaign and thev even wanted to
involve some international organi-
zations. I had no idea of this, nor
had Lubomir Strougal (the Czech
Premier) or other people. There-
fore I asked what actually hap-
pened to get almost the whole of
Western Europe upset."
Dr. Husak. an old-brand Com-
munist, invoking heaven is some-
thing out of the ordinary, and his
audience no doubt listened with
mounting curiosity as he went on:
"Well, in our country, when
somebody escapes abroad in an
illegal way, this Is a criminal act.
Such a man is given a lawyer, and
the lawyers, in their consulting
rooms, said to themselves: Well,
if we defend them, we will notify
them and let them pay for it. In
my view, it was not very wise
because, when somebody escapes
to the West, he will not even
think of paying some Prague law-
yers for his defense. These lawyers
did not think very cleverly, and
without asking anybody, simply
proceeded in the normal way in
accordance with their regulations.
"As a result, there is this cam-
paign against Czechoslovakia,
claiming that we behave in a
cruel way, that we are persecuting
people. Well, we put our heads
together and advised the lawyers:
'Please, comrades, don't do this.
It is no use anyhow, and because
of this inconsiderate action of
yours, the whole regime is slan-
dered, and your action serves as a
pretext for it.' The whole matter
was stopped, but no doubt other
reasons will again be found for
abusing us."

It was a big boost for the Hollywood art
lovers when William Fr-rrst played host to the
guests of the Hollywood Art Museum and the
Cultural Board of the City of Hollywood at his
elegant digs. The occasion was the preview
showing of the magnificio marine paintings of
Axel Llnd, the famous Danish artist whose works
have been exhibited throughout Europe and
Scandinavia. Twas all so terribly posh. The
guests (some in formal wear) were greeted by a
white-gloved butler, and served champagne; the
entrance was guarded by two uniformed members
of the police force. So, when the heat and hu-
midity took over, the several hundred guests
didn't seem to mind a bit. They sipped wine, nib-
bled cheese, fanned themselves and viewed the
collection on display throughout the house. In-
terestingly enough, Mr. Lind paints only the sea
with nary a bird or boat to interrupt the flow of
the canvas. Indeed, any object would be super-
fluous since the artist easily manages to capture
tbe everchanging color and mood of the sea in
its moments of serenity and turbulence.
Seen wandering in the garden and pool area

Mrs. Leonard Bohblnn; Dr. and Mrs. Rubin Klein,
Low and Edwina Jaffee, Marleue (Mrs. Bret)

of artists made the scene, too. There was Betty
Wllkes, J. cvhaMos, Charlotte Wosenitx, Hilll.- de
l with her doctor husband, Ernie.
Kitty Lee was there, too. Some years ago
she lived in this very home in which the paint-
ings were hung (before Bill purchased it and
when it was a distinctive shade of pink). After
the preview showing, the paintings were moved
to the Hollywood Art Muse / i for a 12-day
public viewing. Hope you all caught it! It was
well worth a look-see.
It was definitely a night out for the gals.
However, it wasn't a game of bridge, movie or
other such sedentary pleasure that engaged their
interest. This group of 20 femmes donned their
black leotards accessorized with good inten-
tions to descend upon the Sea Air Towers for
an evening of exercise. In preparation for the
long hot summer and bathing suit days ahead,
the energetic ones, "worked it on out" under the
direction of one Barbara Beoaey. Holder of a
Master's degree in Health and Physical Education,
the keeping trim expert is muy famosa for mak-
ing those Inches melt away. And under such
divine circumstances: large air-conditionmg room,
individual mats and all set to glorious music.

feeling considerably more svelte at the fin-
ish of their clacc than when they had arrived,
the limber gala decided to celebrate the marvel-
ous results of their initial exercise get-together.
And, what better place than (you guessed it)
Howard Johnsons! It really was a delightful eve-
ning. From here on In the classes will be held on
Tuesdays and Fridays at 1:30 p.m. and the hot

-The Ovltan Chib of Hollywood sponsored a
Testimonial Dinner in honor of Mr. DavM Keat-
ing, the gentleman who has served the CHy of
Hollywood as Commissioner for 10-years. The
strieUy non-partlstan, non-political gathering of
600 well wishers that filled the Viking Restau-
rant to capacity seemed to touch all the bases
with the appearance of the heads of both the
Broward County Democrat and Republican par-
ties- in- attendance: at well as officers and mem-
bers of the city's many civic and homeowner's
association and distinguished members of the
Mr. Morton L. A Brant, who served as the
general chairman for the evening's festivities, is
to be congratulated on a job well done. He had
his work cut out for him in serving as emcee of
the event and recognizing all the many dis-
tinguished people on hand. Among them were
Hollywood City Commissioners, Robert Anderson
and Thomas Wohl; Mrs. Robert Barkelrw, Mr.
F. R. Humphries, Mr. Robert Huebner and Me-
morial Hospital Board Members, Mr. Sid Finkel
and Mr. Fred Lippman. There was a fair share
of Judges on hand, too Judge George Pallotto,
Judge Nicholas DeTardo, Judge Lawrence Meyer
and Judge Harvey Ford. Judge Ford along with
John Roman presented a spoof of political doings
that were headline makers during Mr. Keating's
tenure. Spotted in the crowd taking it all in
were Dr. Dave Lehman. Doug anriMarzi Kaplan,
Barry Rodenberg, Dr. Milton and Marilyn My-
ers, Barb Rassell of the Broward County Civic
Ballet, Hallandale's Edgar and Rabbi David Sha-
piro of Temple Sinai who gave the benediction.
Presented with a pair of golden gloves in-
scribed with the number 10 by the Civitan Club
(for his ten years as the "fighting commissioner,"
Mr. Keating also received a proclamation by May-
or John Wulff proclaiming May 10th as Dave
Keating Day. Can't do much better than that
A proud day for the Keatings, Sarah and Dave.
The education-minded ones joined together
at the home of Selma Hopen for coffee and cakes
one morning recently to hear Dr.Lyle Anderson,
a member of the School Board and John Aycock,
Area Superintendent, expound on a subject near
and dear to our hearts: our children's education.
The Broward County Medical Auxiliary was the
sponsor and the meeting was open not only to
its members but to their interested guests. Some
of the many on hand were Edythe Adams, Roz
Bennett, Barbara Desky, Jean Cope, Ann Fine-
man, Evelyn Gtaster, Lynn Jaoobson, Gloria
Friedman, Emily Granbard, Tamara Cohen and
Bertha Smolian. Hopefully another concentrated
day on education will be the outcome of the in-
formative morning: anyone interested in "getting
involved" should contact Selma (Mrs. Joseph)
In order to more effectively further the aims
of both groups, the Executive Committee of the
Nova University Library Society and the Holly-

Moreover, with even greater ad-

the American way of life, there
will be a more meaningful balance
between Jewishness and Amer-

A slowed rate of growth in
the present population of Ameri-
can Jews. The tremendous in-
crease, early in this country, in
the number of Jews living in the
United States was not the result
of natural growth the excess of
births over deaths but rather
the consequence of heavy immi-
gration from Eastern Europe be-
tween 1870 and 1924. The immi-
gration quota laws of the 1920s
ended this mass movement of Jews
from Eastern Europe to the United
States, and since then the growth
of the American-Jewish popula-
tion has been remarkably low.
Continued losses through in-
termarriago. Studies indicate that
the rate of Jewish Intermarriage
is increasing, especially among
young, native-born Americans, and
in areas where Jews are in the
minority. The overall rate of in-
termarriage can be expected to
rise as an increasing number of

A smaller proportion of the
total American population. It has
been established that Jews have

to shrinking birth levels among
American Jews, insuring little more

ent estimate of 6,000.000. Thus the

What is the reason for tearing
one's clothes when one's next of
kin has died?
The general custom of doing this
is derived from passages in the
Bible. For example, it is men-
tioned that "Job stood up and
tore his mantle (Job 1:201. The
same is mentioned of David (2
Samuel 1:11).
The general idea is that one be-
comes very despondent when ob-
serving the death of a dear one.
Tearing the clothes is symbolic of
an emotional reaction of despon-
dency where one loses concern for
his appearance.
Some commentaries say that
tearing the clothes is a method of
releasing one's emotions without
harming one's body. The Torah
explicitly forbids harming one's
body, such as seems to have been
an ancient custom on the part of
some people who would actually
tear their flesh upon the death of
a dear one.
While the Torah felt it to be a
healthy matter to release one's
emotions, it did not allow any
physical harm to lie done to the
body no matter how deep the sor-
row. Thus, the tearing of the
clothes has two purposes. It al-
lows one to release his emotions
and it keeps one mindful of the
requirement to preserve one's self
in the face of any circumstances.
Why in it ctwtomary to have
two people accompany the bride
and the groom down the aisle
during the wedding procession?
The Midrash (Genesis Rabadah.
71 tells us that the Angels Michael
and Gabriel, led Adam and Eve
when the two were joined in nup-
tial bliss. Some have claimed that
this is done so that every bride
and groom can feel like a king or
queen who are always escorted
Generally, it Is an indication that
marriage is not meant to separate
the individual from the community,
but is rather meant to strengthen
his role within the community.
Why do some observe the cus-
tom of carrying candles which
are lit when walking down the
ahle with the. bride and grooro?
Some claim this is reminiscent of
the union of God and His people
Israel at Sinai which took place in
the midst of five.
Others claim that the numerical
value of twice the Hebrew word
for candle (Ner) is. the same as
the Biblical blessing given to Adam
and Eve in the Garden of Eden
with the words "Be Fruitful and
Generally spcakhig. all Jewish
festivities such as marriages. Sab-
baths, births, festivals, are marked
hy the lighting of candles. These
candles generally- imply the pres-
ence of the Almighty who is con-
sidered to be involved as the guid-
ing hand in human affairs.
Thus, the wedding procession is
no exception. Actually the candles
may be considered as a symbol of
the fact that it is not only two
bodies that are being joined to-
gether, but also two living illumi-
nated souls.

Sinai ." Chapte: -, I-IV. 20

FIRST CENSUS: At Sinai on the first day of the second I
month (Iyarl in the second year after the Exodus from Egypt
Moses and Aaron, assisted by a leader chosen from each of the
12 tribes, were commanded by God to count all males over the
age of 20, who automatically became liable for military service
It was found that 668,960 men were available for defense during
the march through the wilderness. The Unites were excluded
from the general census because of their special duties connected
with the sanctuary.
ARRANGEMENT OF THE CAMP: Order and discipline were
to be maintained whether the Israelites were stationary or on
the march. The camp was arranged as a guadrilateral. with th.-
sanctuary in the center, protected on all four sides by the tents
of the Levites. The twelve tribes divided into four sections, each
bearing the name of its leading tribe, which formed the outer
cordon. Judah. together with bsachar and Zebulun. were sta-
tioned on the east: Reuben with Simeon and Gad on the south:
Epbralm with Manasseh and Benjamin on the west: and Dai
with Ashcr and Naphtali on the north. When on the march,
the contingent of Judah took the lead, followed b) Reuben and
Epbralm, with Dan in the rear.
LEVITES AND THEIR DUTIES: The first born of all the
tribes had originally been declared by God to be sanctified to
His service; subsequently the Levites alone had proved them-
selves worthy of this privilege by rallying round Moses after
the incident of the golden calf. Mocos was therefore commanded
to appoint the Levites to the service of the tabernacle in sub-
stitution for the first born. Acting under the direction ol the
priettS, the Kohaini were charged with the responsibility ol the
sacrificial services in the temple and the Levim were charged
with the responsibility of the maintenance of the temple and all
its furnishings and appurtenances.

Road To Sinai Wasn't Easy
Rabbi Schiff

Shavuoth the Festival of Weeks,
marks the anniversary of the giv-
ing of the Torah at Mt. Sinai. Si-
nai therefore, is
the fulfillment
of a dream
which the Isra-
elites had of be-
coming a full-
fledged people.
The road to Si-
nai was not an
easy one. It was
lined with hard
work and sacri-
fice. They suf-
fered indignities
and abuse in
Egypt but still maintained their
commitment to remain one peo-
ple. This earned for them the re-
ward of Sinai.
In our lives we seek many "Si-
nais." Every couple seeks happi-
ness in marriage. Too often how-
ever, marriage is entered into like
an efficient business partnership.
As long as each partner remains an
asset to the "firm" they will re-
main in business. Should one of
them begin to falter however, be
it in the form of poor health, a
decrease in earning power, a les-
sening of charm, etc., the other is
ready to terminate the partner-
The path to the "Sinai" of mari-
tal bliss must be lined with sacrifi-
fice. "Naase Venishma" "we
will perform and we will listen,"
the Israelites stated when offered
the Torah. They accepted the Tor-
ah without condition or reserva-
tion. Success in marriage can only
come when there is mutual uncon-
ditional acceptance.
All parents yearn for the "Si-
nai" of nachas from their children.
Too few arc willing to pay the
price, however. They have too lit-
tle time to give to their children
and even less patience.
While the Torah tells us to hon-
or father and mother, the Talmud
States that a parent who causes
the son to disrespect him has
committed a sin. The fifth co.n-
mandment, then, is not purely
one-way street. It is not designs!
to make the parent a despot to be
served at all costs. The parent
must earn respect. He must inspire.
instruct, influence and mold the
child. He must serve as an icte.v of
honesty, justice and compassion
Principles which Judaism has S-
poused through the ages do not
come without sacrifice. Parents-
must curtail their selfish interests,
their appetite for personal pie ..--
ures and conveniences. They must
give more time and care to fulrill
the most important role of a par-
ent, namely, to raise a child to he

Abortions: A Jewish
View Of The Question
(Author of "Birth Control hi Jewish
Law: Mental Relations. Contracep-
tion, and Abortion," published by
New York University Press i
(A S^ven Arts Feature)
When called upon recently to
testify in a court case challenging
the constitutionality of the state's
abortion law, I was asked two
questions. The answers momentarily
disconcerted the attorney who had
brought me there to help his case.
"Do you believe that our state's
abortion law interferes with your
freedom of religion; that is, with
your freedom to practice your re-
ligious beliefs as a rabbi?"
"It all depends.'' I rejoined,
"whether abortion is murder or
not. If it's murder, then freedom
Of religion doesn't enter the matter.
Let's suppose, for example, that
the ancient Canannites who. the
Bible tells us, used to sacrifice
their children to the fires of Mo-
loch, were suddenly to reappear in
America. Would we allow them
to practice child sacrifice under
the protection of 'freedom of re-
ligion'? Obviously not. 'Freedom
of religion' does not permit us to
"If. however, abortion is de-
clared not to be murder, then we
can talk about freedom of religion,
and then my answer to your first
question would be "yes." The state
law does interfere with my minis-
try as a rabbi, in that those situa-
tions which Jewish law does re-
gard as warrants for abortior
would not qualify for such under
the state law.
Take, for example, the case of
mother who has been told that
this pregnancy would dilute the
milk with which she nurses her
infant. Rulings in the 18th and
20th centuries have permitted
abortion for such reasons clear-
ly not allowable under a system
which speaks in terms of the
mother's life alone."
Reassured, the attorney pressed
on. "Would you say that the abor-
tion statutes as they now stand
are a violation of women's rights,
an encroachment upon their pri-
vacy, upon their right to decide
themselves what they shall do
with their bodies?"
Again my initial response was
"But." he protested "tlvrp. too,
you led me to believe that your
answer would be 'yes.' "
"It all depends." I repeated.
"Could a woman put to death a
two-year-old child, merely because
she is in the privacy of her room,
or because she is dealing exclu-
sively with the fruit of her own
body? Again obviously not. By
the same token, only after we
have determined that abortion is
not murder, that foeticide is not
homicide, can we begin to discuss
the question ot women's rights."
The Jewish legal tradition has
Fu'led that abortion is indeed
wrong; it is a thwarting of poten-
tial life, but it is not murder. Even
the rabbis most rigorously opposed
to abortion, such as the present
Chief Rabbi of Israel, cannot claim
that abortion is a capital matter,
for in rabbinic legislation the con-

coptus is not a human "person"
until the moment of birth.
On the other hand, abortion is
more than murder in the classic
Christian view, where the doc-
trine of Original Sin plays a part.
If, as St. Fulgentius declared in
the 6th century, when the foetus
is not carried to term, its un-
baptised state relegates it to per-
dition, which is death in this world
and in the next. It follows, there-
fore, that carrying it to term
even at the expense of our moth-
er's life, means that both mother
and child can thereby be saved
from death in the next world.
In Judaism, concern with the
soul of the conceptus is irrelevant,
since the soul enters in purity,
without any taint of original sin;
hence, also the widespread discus-
sion about the exact time of en-
try is irrelevant. If the soul is
pure, it does not matter that it
has already entered the conceptus.
for it is dispatched to heaven in
a state of purity.
A soul, being spiritual, is neither
enlargeable nor reducible with the
growth of the embryo. The only
question is an earthly one: wheth-
er a life has been taken, whether
murder in this world has occurred,
and this question the rabbis had
answered in the negative.
Once murder is declared to be
inapplicable, the way is open for
Judaism's this-worldly tradition
to nonetheless permit abortion
when there is good and sufficient
reason. These reasons focus gen-
erally on the welfare of the moth-
er. Speculation about the fate of
the foetus belongs to the "secret
of God," while consideration of
the welfare of the mother, alive
ind present, is the determining
Accordingly, therapeutic abor-
tion when the mother's life is
clearly threatened is not only
permitted but mandated. For oth-
er than life-threatening situations,
decisions have been rendered by
classic rabbinic authorities per-
mitting abortion where warranted.
Without specifying the categor-
ies here, it is important to know-
that they reflect a philosophy
whereby the principles of mother's
welfare and reverence for life are
both satisfied. The balance has
much to teach those both on the
right and on the left, both those
to whom abortion is murder and
can be permitted only for the cor-
respondingly grave reason of sav-
ing the mother's physical life
as well as those to whom abortion
is a matter of indifference, a mat-
ter of course.

As We Were Spying: By ROBERT E. SEGAL
Crisis In The ClassroomAnd Beyond
(O. .Icwinh Telojjraphlc Agency, Inc.
ACCORDING TO Charles E. Silberman, whose
"Crisis in the Classroom,'' has been ruffling the
feathers of teachers and administrators lhk ^ifl*J _
boys and girls have rough slogging
partially because the schoolrooms,
the curriculum, and the rigidity of
teaching methods make education
in the U.S.A. a gloomy, drab, and
dull procedure.
"It is not possible to spend any
prolonged period visiting public
school classrooms without being
appalled by the mutilation visible
everywhere mutilation of spontaneity, of joy in
learning, of pleasure in creating, of sense of self. .
Because adults take the school so much for granted,
UiVi"1 '" appreciate what grim, joyless places
most American schools are, how* oppressive and
petty are the rules by which they are governed, how
intellectually sterile and esthetically barren the
atmosphere,'' Silberman has written.
We are moving faster than the oldtimcrs realize
Into an era of "schools without walls" an exciting
new process wherein children move away from the
classroom to scenes of human activity. The learner
grows more important: that which interests the in-
quisitive child is more significant.
Word seeps through from Washington that
Education Commissioner Marland is busy filling
important i>osts of his regime, and that President
Nixon is showing a new interest in research and
experimentation in the'field of learning. It may be
that educational gains will accrue rapidly for the
children of our new world wherein rich technological
methods enable boys rind girls to learn faster and
to explore new intellectual mines.
More imaginative ways of teaching, more ex-
citing methods of learning, and more generous fi-
nancing for our nation's future leaders are all
essential. And more extensive Citizen involvement
might prove the catalyst to spark these advances.
800* REVIEW By Seymour B. Uebmon
Moses Of The New World
IN MUNICH, GERMANY, in 1831, Baron Maurice de
Hirsch, born Baron Moritz von Hirsch de Gereuth, came
into the world with a gold spoon in his mouth. Theodore
Herzl was born in Vienna in 1860 of
middle class parents. Both men were
reared In Orthodox homes. Herzl became
a journalist and de Hirsch a banker and
builder of railroads. Both preferred liv-
ing in Paris.
The banker became one of the wealthi-
est men in the world and he devoted his
time to philanthropy. Herzl had the zeal
of a Messiah and the prophetic vision of
a Jewish homeland.

He has brought more laughter to
the United States than most peo-
ple in our history.
He is, at the same time, a champ-

His book. "Everything But Money," which has
sold almost a half million copies, proves that there's
nothing more enriching than family fidelity to lofty
standards of service and affection.
Levenson not only appears on TV and radio and
on the lecture platform. He takes part in the ac-
tions and the passions of his people. He was out

He was the master of ceremonies in a New
York park when that city staged an Ethnic Festival
devoted to Jewishness. Millions of non-Jews have
learned about Judaism from this former teacher.
Levenson is an active member of his own con-
gregation in Neponsit, N.Y., and aids his rabbi, Dr.
Joseph Weiss, in many an undertaking.
In an age of vulgarity, when many Jews hate
themselves, it is refreshing to have a Sam Levenson
who deftly combines fun and faith. He's an Ameri-
can gem.
i:.....1 ": "'.>'.
But Herzl will never be forgotten, while the Baron
is known to only a relative few. Each needed what the
other had. Moses of the New World by Samuel J. Lee
(Thomas Yoseloff. $8,501 is a biography of the man with
wealth and power. Although the book lacks merit, it
should be read because there are lessons to be learned
from the life of the Baron.
Mr. Lee has presented a pedestrian account of a Jew
who believed that assimilation is the answer to anti-
Semitism. Among the shortcomings of the author is his
failure to interpret the facts and his use of lengthy
newspaper accounts and quotes. The Baron said, "All our
misfortunes come from the fact that the Jew aims too
high. We have too many intellectuals. My aim is to dis-
courage pushiness among the Jews. They mustn't make
such great progress. All the hatred of us comes from
this." It is paradoxical that these statements should ema-
nate from the man whose "pushiness" resulted in his
amassing untold wealth and power, who spent fortunes in
acquiring palaces and hunting lodges, and who sought
Christian socialites and royalty for guests and friends.
The N.Y. Sun in 1892 commented on the enigma of
a man who was variously described as "selfish, generous,
vainglorious, modest, ill-mannered, boorish, gentlemanly"
at a time when he had just donated $2,400,000 to establish
the American Baron de Hirsch Fund. Mr. Lee does noth-
ing to clear the enigma. The author often attributes state-
ments to a "English historian," "a distinguished Aus-
trian historian,'' "a historian of the period" without nam-
ing these people. Other times ho will supply the name but
not the specific source.
There are several historical error?. The Jews lived in
various kingdoms of the Iberian Pcnninsuh for over 1.500
years prior to 1492 (not 800) and in that year they were
expelled from the kingdoms of Castile and Aragon, not
from Spain. Spain as the unified political unit came
into being in 1516. The proclamation of the French As-
sembly emancipating the Jews applied only to the Sep-
hardim of southern France. The Ashkenazim of the north-
east received their rights in 1791.
De Hirsch was not "the first practical sociologist"
who believed that true charity was giving in such a way
to make almsgiving unnecessary. Maimonides outlined
that principle in his 8 steps to charity 800 years before
the Baron lived.
The Jewish Croesus dissociated Judaism from his
everyday world, and consequently saw* no need for con-
version. He was charitable to Jews because "Jews must
help Jews" since, "others do very little for the Jews ex-
eept in the way of endeavoring to convert them." He dis-
approved or Jews who demanded their fights from Gen-
tiles. He did spend almost 50 million dollars to save a
few thousand Russian Jews from pogroms and he at-
tempted to establish them in agricultural colonies In
Argentina. This venture failed. He>aw no future for Jews
in Palestine.

The Chief Rabbinate
THE QUESTION AS TO who should be the Chief
Rabbi of Israel seems quite remote from some of
the very real problems which face Israel today, yet
it is a problem which goes to the
very root of the nature of the
State of Israel, and involves the
personal lives of practically every
1 Jew in the country. As the result
>f legislative anarchy, political
competition and the passage of
time, the question of continuity in
the Chief Rabbinate is complex,
and seems almost impossible of
The Chief Rabbinate and its Council are the
supreme authorities for Jews in Israel in matters
relating to marriage, divorce, burial, kashrut and
appointment of rabbis. The Council and the rabbini-
cal courts which it supervises may decide who can
marry and who can not, who may be given citizen-
ship automatically, and who not. It lays down the
definition of who is a Jew.
The Chief Rabbinate was set up originally dur-
ing the Turkish regime and extended by the British
when they assumed the mandate over the country.
The incumbents are therefore Government officials,
as provided under the law. The Chief Rabbi was a
Sephardi. ministering to the Jewish community of
Palestine which was predominantly Sephardic. As
the Ashkenazi community grew, however, the latter
protested discrimination against them, and so they
got a Chief Rabbi too.
The Rabbis were chosen by a system set up by
the British, with amendments made in 1954. The
Chief Rabbis were to be chosen by an Electoral
College of 70 members. Of these 42 are rabbis
chosen by an 8-membcr committee set up jointly
by the Supreme Rabbinical Council and the Minister
of Religious Affairs. The remaining 28 are laymen,
elected by municipal or religious bodies in various
parts of the country. The Chief Rabbis are to be
elected for a five-year term. Retirement age for a
Dayan, or judge, of the Rabbinical Court is 75.
Obviously new procedures are needed to sim-
plify the elections, but in the meantime the terms
of office of the Chief Rabbis have run out. The
Knesset is nowhere near passing the necessary
legislation, and so at the end of March this year a
four-month extension of the terms of both Chief
Rabbis was voted.
No one is under any illusions. When the exten-
sion expires at the end of July new legislation will
still not be ready. There will either be a further
provisional extension or the whole institution
of the Chief Rabbinate will collapse.
In the meantime, the various elements are
struggling to frame legislation which would please
them: the extremely Orthodox want to assure elec-
tion of conservative- Chief Rabbis; the anti-religious
would just as soon see the whole institution dis-
carded; end moderate religious, elements would like
to arrange for election of a Chiet Rabbi who would
provide more liberal interpretations of Jewish law
in the light of modern times.
Th^-e will be enormous political pressures dur-
ing the next couple of months. The outcome can
have.^-profound effect on Israel's future.
