Openly Sponsors Ad

Senate Vote Kills $200
Million Grant-In-Aid
Senate's surprise defeat of the
Nixon Administration's $3.2 bil-
lion foreign aid bill reportedly
deprived Israel ot a $200 million
grant-in-ald which would have
been its first since 1964. It also
killed House approved individ-
ual allocations amounting to
$20 million, which were to have
been distributed among a dozen
Israeli institutions such as hos-
pitals and schools. But observ-
ers on Capitol Hill have ex-
pressed confidence that grants
ear-marked for Israel will even-
tually be restored.
The Senate vote did not af-
fect tbe $500 million in military
procurement credits for Israel
which Sen. Henry M. Jackson
(I)-Wash.) attached to the 1971
foreign military sales act.
The $3.2 billion aid bill that
was killed contained an admin-
istration provision for $485 mil-
lion in military credits for a
number of unspecified countries.
According to reliable sources,
$300 million of that amount was
intended for Israel. The legisla-
tion Sen. Jackson promised in a
Sept. 23 speech on the Senate
floor was intended to safeguard
the administration's proviso and
to increase the allocation for
Israel to $500 million, it was
The Senate Foreign Relations
Committee met this week to de-
termine what parts of the for-
eign aid bill can be rescued. Its
chairman, Sen. J. William Ful-
bright (D-Ark.) had told a tele-
vision interviewer Sunday that
he would personally back "the
least controversial" aspects of
foreign aid, such as refugee re-
lief and military aid to Israel.
Hla rrmHrkt-kil some observ-
ers to conclude that the senator,
rael, has changed his position.
But Hoyt I'iir\ is, one of liis
principal aides, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
legislator has not changed his
views on bilateral aid to Israel.
According to some observers,
Sen. Fulbright recognizes that
aid to Israel commands over-
whelming support in his com-
mittee, and he doesn't want to
continue the controversy. He is
likely, therefore, to go along
with the majority, even though
it does not represent his per-
sonal views.
23 Community Leaders Visit Israel
In 'Operation Israel7 Study Mission
Twenty-three community leaders
from Hollywood are busier than
usual these days as they study,
learn and prepare for their de-
parture for Israel Sunday as part
of an Operation Israel Study Mis-
On two separate evenings, the
group has gathered and spent a
fact-filled few hours gathering
data about the forthcoming mis-
sion and its various highlights.
One of the most exciting parts
of the pre-trip preparation has
been sessions which were led by
Jerry Yellin, local representative
for Dale Carnegie courses. Mr.
Yellin explained to the group not
only how they could get the most
out of their trip, but also how to
share their experiences with other
members of the community upon
their return.
At the beginning of Mr. Yel-
lin's discussion, most members of
the group doubted their ability to
speak before a group.
After his instructions, however,
each member found himself able
to verbally share an experience
with his fellow members. In order
for each of them to benefit from
the Study Mission, Mr. Yellin ex-
plained the value of being able to
communicate with warmth and
The Study Mission will leave di-
rectly from Miami and will join
similar groups of community lead-
ers from all over the United
States in Israel. The group will
be given a behind-the-scenes view
of Israel which other tour groups
never see.
The trip will include sightseeing
in Jerusalem, including visits to
the Western Wall, Yad Vashem,
the Military Cemetery, and an im-
migration center where immi-
grants arrive and are processed.
Another day will include trips
to Beit She'an, the Jordan Valley,
the Golan Heights and Umrat El
Azadim, which is on the former
Syrian defens3 line.
They will inspect the slum areas
in Tel Aviv and see JDC/Malben.
Trips will take them to ORT and
IEF Schools as well as tours to
Massada. During the trip, they
will meet many of the high gov-
ernment officials of Israel, Army
personnel and Jewish Agency of-
For the Hollywood contingent,
the trip will wind up with a stay
in London. Leading the local
group will be Dr. Norman Atkin,
campaign chairman for Jewish
Welfare Federation. Other travel-
ers, besides Dr. and Mrs. Atkin,
are Mr. and Mrs. Irving Belson,
Michael Block, Mr. and Mrs. Jesse
Casselhoff, Mr. and Mrs. Herman
Corn, Mrs. Carolyn Davis, Mr. and
Mrs. I. A. Durbin, Mr. and Mrs.

Russian Wife Continues Effort
To Obtain Husband's Release
Page 3
With long black hair framing her
pale face, Rita Gluzman told the
assembled group of Young Leaders
of her efforts to have her husband
Jacov join her in Israel.
Her black eyes were moist as
she talked of her son, a child his
father had never seen, for he had
been born after Rita's emigration
to Israel from Soviet Russia.
The members of the Young Lead-
ers Conference listened somberly
as she told of the grief and an-
guish which had preceded her emi-
gration and her heartbreak at the
continued separation from her
Rita told of how for 15 years,
her parents had been applying for
permission to emigrate to Israel.
From the time she was a little
;irl, she remembers how her par-
ents made every possible move to
>ecure the necessary visas for their
desired emigration.
She went on to tell the group of
how, when she grew up, she had
met Jacov Gluzman and. although
the possibility of emigration and
better life seemed slim, they
married. Within a month of their
marriage, the long sought permis-
sion to emigrate came through
for all of Rita's family, except

the audience to write a letter to
specifically name Jacov Gluzman,
and ask for his release. Vague
pleas seem to fall on heedless ears,
she said, so that Rita and her fel-
low Jews hoping to bring people
out of Russia must personalize
their pleas. The attempt must be
forthcoming from world Jewry to
one by one plead for each individ-
ual Jew that would care to leave
Russia. Perhaps in this way, event-
ually every Jew shall be brought
Dr. Allen Pollack, a professor at
Yeshiva University, followed Rita's
plea with a plea of his own for
Soviet Jewry. Dr. Pollack corrobo-
rated Rita's story and added his
own pleas to hers that every Jew
write a personal plea for Jacov
Gluzman. Perhaps, he said, the
tremendous pressure for one Jew
would bring about his release and.
from there, Jews everywhere could
continue on down the list until
each Soviet Jew is permitted the
opportunity to emigrate.
Dr. Aryah Nescher, currently
the executive director of the Is-
rael Educational Fund, spoke to
the members of the Southeast- Re-
gional Leadership Conference on
the overall situation in Israel and
the aims of this year's campaign in
the United States.
Organization of the campaign
this year was described as three-
fold. The first part is to concen-
trate on the problems of Soviet
Jewry; secondly, immigration to
Israel encompassing housing and
education for immigrants, and,
thirdly, the internal problems of

Mail Campaign Urged
The Prayer Amendment, which has been forced to the
floor of the House of Representatives by petition, may be
baought to a vote Nov. 8 is a target date and leading
Jewish organizations, joined by moot of the major Protestant
churches, are urging a mail campaign to Congressmen
calling for its defeat. In this connection, it should be noted
that neither Congressmen Dante Fascell nor Claude Pepper,
of Dade County, were among those who signed the petition.
The proposed Amendment to the Constitution strikes
at the heart cf the Bill of Rights in that it would permit
"non-denominational prayer in public buildings" in
reality, public schools in the face of many unanimous
Supreme Court decisions which have labeled such prayers
With the exception of some Orthodox groups, the
organized Jewish community has been in historic opposi-
tion to religic-js practices in public schools. Most of the
national religious agencies of Christian churches take
the same view and on the national level have worked
closely with the Jewish organizations.
Many Congressmen will be on the spot in this vote,
which requires, by the way, a two-thirds mujoiity, and un-
less they are informed that the overwhelming majority of
the Jewish community opposes this Amendment may be
led to believe that the voices of a few express the real
Visit Raises An Interesting Question
Chile's President Allende is scheduled to visit Israel
some time next year, raising an interesting question for
American Jews who have been concerned with events in
that Latin American nation since the avowed Marxist took
ofiice last year.
Unlike many of his counterparts throughout the world.
Allende has frequently expressed good will toward Israel
and Jews generally and on Rosh Hashanah this year
extended his greetings to the Jewish community in Chile
and to Israel. Despite this, and not even a hint of anti-
Semitism in the Allende regime, (unlike neighboring Ar-
gentina) there has been an increase in emigration to Israel.
Much of this may be attributed to the fact thai most Jews
in Chile belong to the middle-class, which is a favorite
target of the lrind of economy Allende plans for Chile's
Promise A Real Breakthrough
Continued pressure from American Jewish organiza-
tions, aided by a bill introduced by a New York Congress-
man to provide for special visas for Soviet Jews, has led
Attorney General John Mitchell to agree to use hi3 legal
authority to allow these victims of racial and religious
oppression to enter the United States if they so desire.
The Attorney Generals promise represents a real
break-through in the campaign to get the American gov-
ernment to take positive steps on the question of Soviet
Jewiy. It is a disappointment to some who did not wish
Rep. Edward Koch to withdraw his bill after the agreement
vraa made with Mitchell, but on balance the latest tum of
events represents a significant gain.
Land Of Opportunity
The latest statistics on immigration to Israel show
that close to 38,000 made the decision last year to settle in
the Jewish state, almost a thousand of whom registered as
non-Jews. Included in this number were some 2,000 former
Israelis who were returning home.
An interesting feature is the high percentage of un-
married persons in the group, 53% of the women falling
into that category and 47% of the men. In all respects, it
seems, Israel is seen as the land of opportunity.
HONG KONG In this part
of the world, much is always
mysterious. But nothing at all is
compiihensib'.e unless you an*
ready to law a central, highly
repellent fact. The Soviets nre
actively pre|ring a nu-
clear strike to destroy Commun-
ist China's nuclear program.
Preparations by no means fore-
tell actions in all cases. Yet it is
still highly important that the
Soviet buildup along the
frontier has gone forward this
summer in the usual massive and
methodical manner.
WHKN THIS Soviet buildup
began over five years ago, it was
p.; by the same people
in the U.S. government who
were wrong about the reinvnsion
of Hungary, wrong a^ain about
the Cuban missiles and wrong a
third time about ur.'bappy Czech-
oslovakia. These people sa-id that
thi' buildup could not be con-
sidered offensive in puhfMM un-
til and unless more than 30 So-
viet divisions had been deployed
along China's border.
Well, the total of divisions de-
ployed on the harder reached 49
this summer, besides 75,000 bor-
der guards. AH supporting arms,
including huge numbers of tac-
tical nuclear weapons, are con-
spicuously in place as well.
THE PATTERN is quite clear.
Everything ti also in place for
the surgical nuclear strike to be
delivered if and when the Krem-
lin decides that the growth of
Chinese nuclear power is intol-
erable. And S00.0C0 Saviet troops
are now on the lwrder, primarily
to defend against a Chinese
counterattack alter this kind of
single;:! strike.
A future Kremlin decision to
launch a strike is deeply feared
by the Chinese Communist load-
ers. This tear was the prime fac-
tor in the irritation to Presi-
dent Nixon to visit Peking. Be-
lieving they were threatened by
the Soviets the Chinese Com-
munists wanted to move closer
to the United States.
IT SHOULD be noted, too,
that the Chinese changed a long-
head, strongly cherished national
policy for this purpose. The invi-
tation to the President was in
fact issued with full knowledge
that Mr. Nixon had no intention
of flushing Taiwan down the
drain. Hence Peking's invitation
amounted to tacit acceptance of
an American "two China" policy.
It is all the more interesting,
then, that there is clear evidence
of a recent Soviet attempt to In-
tervene in the important but
I murky internal struggle that has
| hern going on for some time in
I Peking. The ultimate sources of
this struggle were apparently
quite unomnected with the invi-
tation to Mr. Nixon.
ONE SOl'HCE seems to have
been the crucial succession to
Mao Tse-tung, most probably be-
cause the formerly designated
successor, Lin Piao, is gravely
ill. The other source was pretty
certainly the progressive exclu-
sion item power of the extrem-
ists of the Cultural Revolution,
notably including two Politburo
members, Chen Po-ta and Kang
As to the presumed Soviet in-
tervention in this struggle, one
may be reasonably sure of three
things. It was stimulated by the
invitation to President Nixon.
It was clumsy, perhaps even
brutal And it failed dismally.
strange but quite conclusive. On
the night of Sept. 12-13. a Chi-
nese air force jet tMMpoM took
off from near Peking. It was
headed for Irkutsk in the Soviet
Union, but it crashed en route
in Outer Mongolia. The next
morning all planes in China were
mounded for a few days; and all
planes of the Chinese air force
continue to be grounded to this
The Chinese air fore, owned
only lour of these jet transport..,
which arc British Tridents. It
can be seen, then, that the order
to make a night flight to Irkutsk,
of all places, can only have bcon
given by someone with top-Iewl
authority. Most probably it w
given by the Chinese air force
commander. Wu Fa-hsieru, who
used to be an ally of Chen Po-ta.
THE PLANE'S known desti-
nation points straight to prior
Soviet involvement. Since all
Chinese air force planes are still
grounded, the Chinese loaders
even seem to suspect that the
whole orgarization may have
been penetrated by the Soviets.
Thus the drama, though so ob-
scure, is pretty intense already.
It will surely grow more intense
during the next 24 to 30 months.
For that is about the limit, of the
time when the Soviets can launch
their surgical nuclear strike
without acetous risk of any Chi-
nese eour;terstrike with nuclear
Balance the vastness ->f the
Soviet preparations against the
dark horror Of the thing being
prepared. The betting, then, is
about even, either way. that the
Kremlin will or will not give the
order to strike. Kither way. too,

Why do some people stand up
when thr Torah is l>eing read in
the Synagogue?
Some people consider the occa-
sion of reading the Torah in the
synagogue to be representative of
the occasion of the revelation at
Mt. Sinai. Since the Israelites
were standing when they received
the Torah at Mt. Sinai, many wor-
shippers stand when the Torah is
being read in the synagogue.
Others sit because the reading of
the Torah is regarded by some as
a form of education. In the proc-
ess of education one is permitted
to sit.
There are those who claim that
OUT tradition follows the custom of
sitting when the Torah is read be-
cause our generations are consul-
.' v__________-.- -,
ei'ed somewhat weaker phyafc ly
and according to some, somewhat
weaker spiritually, lacking the
same commitment that caused
people of previous generations to
stand in awe and in reverence
when the Torah is being read.
Why Is it npremary to pro-
nounce a benediction before
each portion ol the Torah is
There is a general ru! I which
requires a benediction to be pro-
nounced before the performance of
a mitzvah. Reading the Torah is
j one of these mitzvoth.
However, the benediction which
is recited before the reading of
the Torah is not like the usual
form of benediction which is pro-
nounced before a mitzvah. It car-
ries with it the additional infer-
ence that we are the chosen peo-
ple and that the Tc-ah which we,
read is especially revealed to us
by the Almighty.
An additional purpose of the
benediction, therefore, is the re-
minder to one's self and to the
congregation that the scriptures
we read are not simply the inven-
tions of man, but rather the eter-
nal and immortal words express-
ing the will of the Almighty as
given to His chosen people. Israel.

Who can say what makea/tis IfttttaiivHsjcuncl Belie Schlafer
lake on the added responsibility
ol community activities?" said
Herbert D. Katz, upon assuming
the position of cochairman of
1972s Federation Campaign.
"It's difficult to think back and
s.i\ at what |M)int and why I de-
cided to become involved in Jew-
ish Welfare activities. I know that
when I Joined the Young Leaders
program of Federation, a
number of my close friends also
joined. We became interested at
the same time and it's hard to
remember which one of us was
the instigator."
"However," he continued, "as we
all went through the program of
the Young Leaders group, I, my-
self, do know that I became more
and more interested in the work
that Federation was doing."
Mr. Katz has been a Hollywrxid
resident almost since the time he
went into the practice of law. He
is a graduate of the Wharton
School of the University of Penn-
Bj Ivania and of Harvard I .aw
School. After his graduation from
law school, he joined the Coast
Guard and was stationed in Miami
I-oving everything about Florida
he decided to settle here. It's a
decision that he has never re-
gret led.
Joining the Young Leaders pro-
gram is another decision that he
is happy he made for it became
the forerunner for many other re-
lated activities and honors.
His participation in the Young
Leaders.- program brought him the
Young Leaders Award in 1968.
And in 1970 he was a winner of
the UJA Award.
His related activities include
membership in the National UJA
Young Leaders Cabinet, the Na-
tional Cash Committee of UJA
and on the Campaign Services
Committee of the Council of Jew-
ish Federations and Welfare
Funds. He is a past president of
the Board of Camp Ka-Dee-Mah, a
local day camp founded by Holly-
wood's Jewish Welfare Federa-

turing and helping Israel today
can any future be built for Jews
throughout the world," he said. "I
went to Israel for the first time
in December of 1968 on an Opera-
tion Israel study mission. I was
so impressed and thrilled that I
wanted my wife KUie, to see it
too. So we both went on a Young
Leadership trip the following No-
vember. Kllie is just as enthusias-
tic as I am about Israel and all
the other activities which foster
Jewish continuity. She is extreme-
ly active with the Women's Divi-

ranging from 16 down to three.
The oldest, Laura, is a member of
the Titaneers drill team at Nova

Oldest son. Tommy, is on the

Tommy and Laura are members
of the newly formed Youth Coun-

"It's interesting and satisfying
to feel that the children seem to

Tluink heavens it didn't rain for 40 days and
40 nights. For if it had, the Emerald Hills Coun-
Hy Club would have found itself occupied by the
strangest, most hilarious group of twosomes ever
to enter an ark.
The terribly clever sals of Chari-Team and
their hubbies transformed the usually plush club
into an ark all right, and greeted their costumed
guests dressed in fringed burlap and leaves as 11
Noah- ami Mis Noahs. It was all for their
"Paired Affair event to benefit the Teenage Hot-

very real calves mooed the Orel greeting. The in-
side of the clubhouse revealed in-the-flesb real
Chickens, duckv rabbits and birds, all in pairs,
of course, along with life sized replicas of assorted
animals. The port holes, fishnet and haystivwn
floor gave off a 100', inside-Noah's-Ark effect
and set the scene for one "dilly" of an evening of
sipping, supping, laughing and dancing.
Some of the first to enter the ark were the

Some of the hostesses for the event. Grorgeanne
Ueed. Gladys Rave, Mrs. Walt Tiernan. Ruth
Tupler, and Ja<-kl Roeen held forth over the

tively charmed the gals with his flowing rhetoric.
Subject of his address was the passing of the
corporate tax a cause which has kept him on
a whirlwind tour of coffees, luncheons, and meet-

Spotted in the throng of attentive femnies
were Jackie Zbar, CsmUls Sultan, Lee Herman,

of the splendid turnout.
The corporate tax passed easily, and. if per-
sonable effective speaking, charming governors
were put on a ballot, we are certain that Flor-
ida's governor. Reubin Askew would win by an
overwhelming majority.

Dr. Morton Malavsky, spiritual
leader of Temple Beth Sholom,
criticized Syrian authorities in a
recent sermon.
The distressing, and increas-
ingly alarming reports which we
have received in recent days from
most reliable sources concerning
the threat to the survival of the
remnants of Syrian Jewry,
prompts US, once again, to speak
out," the rabbi stated.
According to the rabbi's sourc-
es. 12 young Syrian Jews arc being
held In jail, charged with attempt-
ing to flee the country. They in-
clude Isaac Hamra. Sheila Harare,
Misses Badio DibLo, Boukehi. Mel-
les, and Vachar. Abdo Saadia. Si-
mon Bissou and Mr. and Mrs.
Azur Blanga and their four-year
aid son.
"The Syrian security police have
interrogated the relatives of the
12 Jews and the relatives of oth-
ers who have either succeeded in
fleeing the country or were sus-
pected of planning an escape and
going to Israel," Dr. Malavsky
'There are reports that they
have been interrogated under tor-
ture and held under strict soli-
tary confinement for |>eriods up
to three months." he added.
The rabbi said all who have
been released after confinement
are, without exception, reported to
be physically ill, bodily maimed or
mentally deranged.
"Jews who did succeed in es-
caping to Israel or other countries
in the free world report that those
who have fallen into Syrian hands
are being subjected to electrical
torture, ripping off of fingernails,
and cigarette burns on various ex-
tremities of the body," he related.
"Jewish girls have been abducted.
raped and thrown naked into the
streets of the Jewish ghetto in
Damascus. Recently, Jewish
homes were set on fire in the Da-
mascus ghetto.

at the well, and God answered his prayer that the girl who came

quaints us with the custom of
I sitting low even on the ground

mourning expression. However,

on the other hand', that Judaisi"
does not engage in the worship |
the dead, like'Egypt did. nor th
cremation of the dead like Canaa

A magnificent treasure of limited proof-quality collectors' medals struck in 24 Kt. Gold Plate
on Sterling Silver and in Solid Sterling Silver.
It was a dream spanning the centuries ... an
article of faith and a quietly burning hope
in the hearts of Jews world-wide. As chief
founder of the Zionist Organization in 1897,
Theodor Herri devoted his enormous ener-
gies and dedication to the goal of creating a
Jewish state. And in April, 1917, the dream
was catapulted to reality by a single docu-
ment the Ba'.four Declaration, pledging
Britain's support for the establishment in
Palestine of a national home for the Jewish
Almost a generation of bloodshed, strife,
setback and frustration was to follow before
the ancient prophecy was truly fulfilled.
Finally, on May 14, 1^43, in Tel Aviv, the
establishment of a Jewish state, to be called
Israel, was proclaimed.
Thus was born a new nation: unique in its
conception inevitable in its fulfillment of
destiny unmatched in its inspiring saga
of courage, dedica:lon and triumph.
A Magnificent Commemorative
To record this saga, in the form of a truly
I I r.g and memorable tribute, the Israel
Museum, Jerusalem, has authorized and col-
laborated in the minting of a major series of
proof-quality commemorative medals A
ISRAEL. The medals are being struck by The
Lincoln Mint in two limited editions one
in li Kt. Cold Plate on Sterling Silver, and
o.-.e in Stcimg Silver.
To make a project of such important scope
a reality, [uishtd start members of
: .Museum selected the 30 landmark events
and people most worthy of commemoration.
The Balfour Declaration of 1917, Colda
Meir, Theodor Herzl, David Ben-Curion, The
Partition Plan in the United Nations, the
Goodship Exodus, The Declaration of Inde-
pendence and The Six Day War are just a
few of the significant people and events of
Jewish history depicted in this series.
Participants providing overall supervision
for the program include the Museum's
Director, Daniel Gelmond and Dr. Yaakov
Meshorer, Curator of Numismatics. The
medals will be designed by the internation-
ally acclaimed Israel medals sculptor, Yosef
Limited Editions
You will have only one limited oppor-
tunity to acquire the First Issue of this his-
toric collection each Set of which will be
numbered and registered.
The 30 commemorative medals A
ISRAELwill be limited to a maximum of
2500 24 Kt. Cold Plate on Sterling Silver
Sets, and 7,500 Solid Sterling Silver Sets.
There will be no additional Sets of these
editions ever minted. Sets will be allocated

number of Sets is allocated, additional sub-
scriptions will be returned.

never again have the opportunity to acquire
this First Issue Seriesunless you are able
to persuade an original subscriber to part
with his Setor you can acquire a Set from
an heir of one of the original subscribers.
In addition, a limit of one subscription per

exactly 2,500 2-J Kt. Gold Plate on Sterling
Silver Set owners, exactly 7,500 Solid Ster-
ling Set owners. Each commemorative medal
will be minted in 45 mm. size (considerably
larger than the American silver dollar).
Heirloom Qualities
Because of the strict limit in the number of
subscriptions, each Set will have a basic
heirloom quality: rarity. This very quality
may help the Set to increase in monetary
value as the years pass. But more important,
your Set will become increasingly valuable
as a cherished family possession because it

minted and exquisitely craftedthe major
individuals and events in the history of the
State of Israel.

The first medal in the Scries will be de-
livered to you shortly after your order is
received and accepted provided the sub-
scription rolls have not been filled. You will
then receive one medal a month (for the bal-
ance of 30 months), together with an invoice
for the next month's medal.
Although you might expect to pay a con-
siderable amount of money for each of these
medals, because this will be a First Issue, the
price has been established at just $17.50 each
for the 24 Kt. Gold Plate on Sterling Silver
medals, and only $12.50 each for the Solid
Sterling Silver medals.
Collector's Album
Each subscriber to this series will receive
free, an attractive album in which to display
and protect the medals. As you receive each
medal, you will have the pleasure of placing
it in its honored place in the album. Soon you
will have a complete and beautifully con-
tained medallic history of the State of Israel.

of owning an original work of medallic art
such as this. If you have never collected
medals or art, you have a rare thrill in store.
The beauty and historical significance of this
series ... the excitement of ownership (not
to mention the educational value to your en-
tire family), is a feeling unlike anything else.
But your subscription application must be
received before all subscriptions are allo-
cated. You will never again have the oppor-
tunity of acquiring this First Issue of A

Proposing, Opposing, Supposing, Disposing
(Copyright 1971, Jrwlnh Telegraphic Agency, Int.)
ISRAEL PROPOSES, but Egypt opposes. America
SUPUBK^ the f"turc disposes.,,^ .. .
That was the story this month in the General
Assembly. The prelude was Soviet Foreign Minister
Andrei Gromyko's speech Sept. 28, in which he
stated that since "the Soviet Uunion wants to see
peace in the Middle East, she will continue to sup-
port the Arab states, which are the victims of ag-
gression, as well as their efforts aimed at liberating
their territories."
Fittingly, perhaps, the day after Oromyko's
speech was Yom Kippur. The day after that, Israeli
foreign Minister Abba Eban proffered his "Five
Roads to Peace."
Riad later took his turn at the Assembly po-
dium, speaking for an hour. Two days earlier, Riad
had told this correspondent that he would meet
with Eban only if Israel first agreed to quit all of
the Sinai. Asked if that was not a pre-condition, he
responded: "We should have pre-conditions regard-
ing our sovereignty, no doubt about It. The sover-
..pispty of juff lrrita*iesaaBc*t be discussed." He
reiterated this position in his speech.
On Oct. 4, American Secretary of State William
Rogers contended that while Mideast progress was
"urgently" needed his prepared text said "partic-
ularly" needed the political climate had eased
enough for an interim canal arrangement to be "a
step which can be taken now." That was fine as far
as hope for a pact was concerned both Egypt and
Israel want it, though on different terms. But
then Rogers emphasized points- favorable to the
Egyptians. He stressed Israeli withdrawal, he talked
of a possible "compromise" on "an Egyptian mili-
tary presence east of the canal," and he noted that
"each (side) is concerned about its future security;"
hut he didn't mention demilitarization of the Sinai,
Israeli sovereignty or Egyptian cease-fire violations.
Three days later, Israeli Premier Golda Meir
complained that Rogers "gave Egypt the opportun-;
ity to interpret hu, remarks as a confirmation of
their position tying an agreement on the open-
ing of the canal to an Israeli commitment to imple-
ment their version of the Security Council resolu-
Later in the week, Rogers conferred with Riad
and the two gave public indication without de-
tails that they were hopeful of a solution. It
MM difficult to see what they were so optimistic
about. Israel still refused and refuses to com-
mit herself to any specific degree of withdrawal
outside the context of negotiations under the terms
of Security Council Resolution 242, which on Nov.
22 will be four years old. Egypt refused and
refuses to talk to Israel about anything until she
agrees to say bye-bye to the Sinai. That*s progress?
It figures to be a long, cold winter along the
Suez Canal.

Civil Marriage In Israel
umtKN THE STATF. OF ISRAEL came into existence
23 years ago a gentleman's agreement was reached
between the religious and the secular leadership, in
effect proclaiming a truce in the ideo-
logical clash between them. Under the
terms of that truce, which has become
known in popular usage as the "status
quo," the laws, regulations and ordi-
nances then in effect in matters affect-
ing religious affairs would continue in
effect, and there would be no changes
which would affect the situation from
either point of view.
Thus it is that the operation of buses in Jerusalem is
banned on the Sabbath, but they ply freely in Haifa. The
Some Light Reading
"THE RIGHT TIME" by Harry Golden (Pyramid
Books, $1.25) is the autobiography of an Amer-
ican Jew who Achieved fame through his newspaper,
'Carolina Israelite," one of the
^reat bits of personal journalism
f this century. To add lustre, as
veil as money, which Golden
needed because his paper produced
few financial rewards, he began
to write a series of vignettes on
his early years on the East Side
of New York.
His autobiography is a more
formal presentation of his life presented in chrono-
logical order and he bares nothing including his
marriage to a non-Jewess and his criminal convic-
tion. There are interesting anecdotes of the 20s and
30s and of the great and the near great. One cannot
cavil about personal history.
The Israelites (G. P. Putnam's Sons $6.95) by
Golden with some editing and a few vignettes by
his son, Richard Goldhurst, left this reviewer cold.
The son evidences little knowledge of Judaism and
even less of Israel. It is a book that one can read
or leave alone. Despite Golden s talent for telling a
story engagingly, one doubts whether the book
would have seen the light of day if authored by an
unknown. The egotism of father and son often ob-
scures the fact that the subtitle of the book is
"Portrait of a People." Quite often the sub-title
applies to the authors rather than to the Israelis.
Jacob Beller is a Yiddish journalist of the school
of writing similar to that of the deceased Chaim
Shoshkes: heavy on tales and imagination and light
on fact. His book, Jew* In Latin America (Jonathan
David Publishers, $7.951 is a compilation of "his-
tory," parts of which are inaacumte or exaggerated
or almost imaginary. It also includes the author's
encounters in various parts of the vast land south
of the border.
Since your reviewer is cited as a source and au-
thority three times, he ought to be temperate in
criticism but "flattery will get the author nowhere."
I am pleased to report that Mr. beller does not take
issue with my finding that the so-called "Indian
Jews" of Mexico are neither Indians nor Jews. Mr.
Beller has reversed himself by this acknowledge-
ment. He has yet to disavow his statement about
Peruvian Indians.
His background or introductory openings for
each country are drawn from mostly unnamed
sources, the validity of which are often questionable.
The best aspects of the book stem from Belief's
ability to communicate in Spanish and his travels
off the beaten path where he met peripheral Jews.
railroad stops running on Sabbath, but the telephone
lines are manned. There are no postal or telegraph serv-
ices, but the radio broadcasts freely. There arc dozens of
other similar contradictions in public sen-ice, but both
sides accept the status quo as the better alternative to
civil war.
Extremists on both sides find their patience wearing
thin in the face of violations of that arrangement. Zea-
lots in Jerusalem regard the operation of pubhc transport
on the day of rest as a deliberate nibbling away of the
truce and they have reacted with an indignation fired
by religious fervor. Secularists have begun to chafe in-
creasingly under the religious controls over marriage and
divorce. wbich make only the orthodox, the halakhlc cere-
mony legally valid, and there is demand for introduction
of legislation to legalize civil maniagc.
The rabbis have warned that if civil marriage is per-
mitted, as between Jewish men and non-Jewish women,
for example, the children of such unions will not be rec-
ognized as Jews, and over a period of time the situation
will lead to a genuine split in the unity of the Jewish
j>oople. The unity plea has jwobably been the major fac-
tor which has thus far headed off the proposed reform.
There is little doubt that the overwhelming majority of
the population, and thus includes many for whom a reli-
gious ceremony is a matter of Indifference, do not wish to
contribute to this kind of internal schism.
The radical secularists have continued their agitation.
Cases in which the severity of the halukha has caused
hardship and misery to individuals have been exploited
and publicized. There are such cases. A man whose
name is Cohen is not permitted to marry a divorcee,
because orthodox law forbids one of the priestly caste
so to wed. A woman whose husband vanisned in the
maelstrom of war and the Holocaust in Europe is an
agunah, and not permitted to marry again until evidence
can be produced that her spouse is dead. An Israeli who
has to all Intents and purposes been a Jew from birth,
and who may have been a national milrtary Hero, ran not
marry his Jewish girl friend if there Is a shadow of
suspicion that his mother was not Jewish and had not
been converted.
There is now a growing movement to provide for
civil marriage at least lor such cases, lor those who do
not quality by rabbinical definition to undergo the tra-
ditional ceremony acaordang to "the Law of Moses and
Israel." On the one hand, the oHhodox object vlgoroosly,
seeing it as an opening wedge. And the committed secular-
ists, for whom their secularism has became a matter of
deep faith and conscience, consider the proposal insuffi-
cient. They want civil marriage made available to all in
Israel who deserve it.
The pressures are mounting, and something is bound
to give. The Knesset will this year have before it more
than one legislative proposal to legalize marrissje. It is
interesting to note that many Reform or Liberal rabbis,
in their opposition to orthodoxy, have come out in favor
of civil marriage. The issue will be debated with deep
emotion, and only a renewal of immediate threat from
an outside enemy can long defer the showdown.

Behind Prison Walls
LJAXY OF THE 400 prisons and 4.000 jails in the
United States are full, shabby, unsanitary, un- j
sightly. A large number have been in service 50
lo a 100 years and more. And
while even the most firery revolu-
tionary will acknowledge that our
artiquated prison system is bet-
ter than the practices of earlier
eras when men were killed for
stealing bread, we have failed
miserably in our obligation to deal
sensibly with offenders.
Some who read these observa-
tions now find Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney
General "too controversial" for acceptance. But
they really should acknowledge his cautious ap-
praisal that 95 cents in every one of the one and
a half billion dollars spent on corrections in this
country go for prison walls and bars and guards
while only 15 cents of each dollar is spent to an-
swer the crying need for prisoner rehabilitation.
One authority has declared that American
prisoners continue to function as warehouses for
long term storage of human refuse, an observation
not far different from Oscar Wilde's first-person
"The vilest deeds like poison weeds
Bloom well in prison air:
It is only what is GOOD in Man
That wastes and withers there."
Attica crowds in upon us with an irrepressible
insistance that we match our fight against crime
with a determination to reorder our prison system.
The needed reforms were set down with great care
by the President's Commission On Law Enforcement
and the Administration of Justice, set up in 1965:
tl''.Establish with state and federal funds small-
unit institutions in cities for community-oriented
treatment; (2) Operate institutions with joint re-
sponsibility of staff and inmates for rehabilitation;
(3) Upgrade the educational and vocational train-
ing for inmates; (4) Establish state programs to
recruit and train, instructors; (51 Improve prison
industries through joint state programs and fed-
eral assistance; (7) Integrate local jails and mis-
demeanant institutions with state corrections; (8)
Provide separate detention facilities for juveniles;
t9) House and handle persons awaiting trial sep-
arately from convicts; (10) Provide separate'treat-
! ment to special offender groups through the pooling
or sharing among jurisdictions.
Until we get on with such reforms, until we es-
tablish prison mechanisms for proper redress of
grievances, until we act affirmatively on the full
report of those now studying Attica, we had better
be prepared for continuing prison crises.
