Ambassador Rabin Returns
To Washington After Visit
sador Yitzhak Rabin has return-
ed to Washington, following a
brief private visit here to ob-
serve the shloshim (30-day an-
niversary) of his father's death.
Ambassador Rabin told report-
ers at Lydda Airport that Israel

Half Million Is Sought
By Apartment Division
More than 100 enthusiastic work-
ers In the Apartment Division of
Jewish Welfare Federation's 1972
campaign attended the recent
breakfast meeting at the Hemi-
spheres where plans for this year's
campaign were discussed.
On hand to explain the details
lere Maurie Meyers and Melvin
" Baer, cochairmen of the Divi-
|sioti and Murray Smithline, asso-
Vinie chairman and members of
phi' campaign cabinet.
The large group of building
chairmen represented almost ev-
ery apartment house in the Holly-
wood and Hallandale area. Robert
Kernel, executive director of Fed-
eration, presented some of his
ideas on organization of the vari-
ous buildings and how best to
solicit gifts from the tenants.
Pledge cards for the residents of
the apartment houses were pro-
vided the building representatives
to facilitate their work.
The Apartment Division of Fed-
eration's campaign is one of the
1 fastest growing divisions in this
area due to the ever expanding
number of condominium and rent-
al unit dwellers. Many of these
new residents, although committed
to the needs of Israel and to the
needs of local agencies in the
home towns from which they origi-
nate, are uninformed about the
campaign hero in Hollywood. There-
fore, Apartment Division repre-
sentatives are attempting to con-
tact each tenant, appraise them
of the goal of the Hollywood Fed-
eration campaign, and solicit their
Previous to the breakfast meet-
ing at the Hemispheres, the chair-
man and vice chairmen of this di-
vision had a planning meeting at
Aventura Country Club. This
luncheon meeting, attended
by approximately 20 leaders of
the group, was hosted by Dr. Nor-
man Atkin, campaign chairman
for JWF. Over-all plans were dis-
cussed in relation to the Apart-
ment Division's role for 1972, and
the goal was set at $500,000.
The Berman quints minus the brother
who didn't survive are shown the

University Medical Center, where they
lived in incubators. The boy and three

for "preemies" at the Medical Center
and, in addition, maintains a clinic for
all "high risk" infants born in Jeru-
salem. This special clinic, for out pa-
tient follow-up care, is centrally lo-
cated in the city at its Straus Center.
Dr. Plotkin Guest Speaker
At Dental Division Meeting
Former SS Officer
Offers to Pinpoint
Hideout for $50,000
BONN (JTA) An unidenti-
fied former SS officer has of-
fered to turn A. Mengele, the
notorious death camp doctor,
over to Israeli authorities for
$50,000, it was reported here.
The offer was said to have been
made to Tuvia Friedman, who
heads the Nazi documentation
and war research center in
Mengele, the physician who
selected Jewish prisoners for
the Auschwitz gas chambers,
has been at large since the end
of World War II and is report-
edly hiding in South America.
The Frankfurt Attorney Gen-
eral's office has a standing offer
of $15,000 to anyone who can
provide information on his pre-
cise whereabouts.
The SS man reportedly told
Mr. Friedman that his quarry is
in Paraguay. He submitted a
photograph of the wanted war
criminal which he claimed to
have taken himself in South
America during a recent visit,
and said that with a sufficiently
strung task force he could cap-
ture Mengele and deliver him
to Israeli authorities.
Dr. Arieh L. Plotkin, former
^^Stael defense forces officer, will
be the featured speaker at an 8
p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 1, meeting of
the Dental Division of Jewish Wel-
fare Federation's 1972 campaign,
it has been announced. The meet-
ing will take place at the home
of Dr. Samuel Meline, president of
the Young Leaders Council of Jew-
ish Welfare Federation.
Dr. Plotkin, a noted lecturer on
Middle Eastern affairs, was in
Hollywood last year as a guest
for the Women's Division of Fed-
eration. He was received with en-
thusiasm at that time, and was
asked to return this year to ap-
pear before the Dental group.
Dr. Plotkin's background in-
cludes both M.A. and Ph.D. de-
grees from Princeton University,
where he has also served on the
faculty. He was the firs* Israeli
citizen to be admitted to Prince-
ton's Woodrow Wilson School of
International Affairs.
Crash Program to Provide
Housing For Immigrants
may import laborers from
abroad and temporarily lower
certain building standards in or-
der to provide housing for the
wave of immigrants expected to
arrive durinc 1972.
Details of the crash program
that will cost at least $100 mil-
lion were disclosed here last
week by Josef Sharon, director
general of the Housing Minis-
try. He said the foreign labor
would consist of tile layers and
plasterers, a category of work-
ers in short supply in Israel.
The aim is to provide an ad-
ditional 6,000 housing unite for
an estimated 20,000 immgrants
expected to come to Israel in
excess of the original forecasts
for this year. The ministry will
rely heavily on pre-fabrlcated
houses, which can be completed
In six months.
About one third of the coun-
try's pre-fab manufacturing ca-
pacity will be earmarked for
immigrant housing and the
Ministry has options on an ad-
ditional 1000-1500 units which
will be imported from abroad
should immigration exceed the
present revised forecast, Sharon
said. The plans will not affect
housing for young couples, slum
dwellers and other priority
groups inside the country, he
In order to speed up the
availability of the new unite,
the Interior Ministry has agreed
to permit local inspection au-
thorities to approve temporary
installations of water, sewerage
and electric connections that do
not meet the environmental or
engineering standards.
Building contractors will be
paid special bonuses if they
complete their work ahead of
schedule ana tne treasury will
reduce overtime tax rates for
building workers as an incentive
to work longer hours.

Spiritual World
Dr. Morton Malavsky, Temple Beth Shalom
"To teach, not preach," is the
; hilosophy of Dr. Morton Malav-
sky, spiritual leader of Temple
Beth Shalom.
As a newly ordained rabhi some
luenty-odd years ago, Dr. Malav-
sky admits, he felt preaching to
be an integral part of his chosen
work. But the high percentage of
religious drop-outs among our
_\ stock of what the rabbinate was
doing to hold on to them.
Too many left after Bar Mitx-
vah and never returned, he dis-
,-ered. Disinterest, inconsisten-
and too rigid methods of edu-
Htion resulted In sanctuaries
empty except for the nisli holi-
di ys, where too many rabbis ex-
imtinded on political topics.
"Even if a rabbi has the grcat-
. i sermonic ability in the world,
what is accomplished if no one
, icnils services?", he reasoned,
ritimatcly he evolved his "teach,
: n in each" theory and developed
tenadoui approach to educat-
ing our young people. Dr. Malav-
- .;. frcLs that every form of teach-
ing should he used to hold on to
our children. "Start with the
ihree-year-old," he says, "let him
know the Rabbi, Cantor and the
At Beth Shalom, the Rabbi has
instituted many new programs,
beginning with 170 pre-schoolers
in the kindergarten nursery
school at the Jack and Rachel
Shapiro Religious School, who ex-
citedly cry "Hi, Rabbi" when he
nears a classroom. His teenage
rap sessions draw many Jews and
non-Jews from throughout the
Dr. Malavsky -has worked close-
ly with the temple school board
and Greater Miami Board of Jew-

teaching methods. A great bellev-
er in the "personal" or "grass
roots" approach for clergymen, he
i- pleased to see signs this is being
included in current Seminary cur-
Kabbi Malavsky feels we can
vent assimilation by with-
drawal and Intermarriage if we
forge strong religious ties in the
young child." And if these ties are
instilled deeply enough by age 13,
then success is almost assured.
Significantly, Rabbi Malavsky
received his earliest training from
!i^ lather, Rabbi Isaac Malavsky,
'lie of the first rabbis in Mexico.
While still a very young boy, he
tutored Bar Mitzvah students. Al-
t lough his father passed away
'' hen he was 15, a complete dedi-
"'ii to Judaism was firmly en-
trenched within him. He worked
s immera as a bus boy in Atlantic
City hotels and at odd jobs all
oughout the school year while
attending the Yeshiva Mishkan
Israel, the Mesvista Talmudical
'-' ademy and Rabbinical Semi-
Page 3
nnry and New Ycrk University.
Dr. Malavsky came to Holly-
wood in 1963 after serving prev-
iously as spiritual leader in Ma-
hanoy City, Pa., and at the Is-
raelite Center in Miami. He re-
ceived his Doctor of Divinity de-
gree from the University of Mis-
souri in 1970, after submitting a
thesis on Immortality.
Rabbi Malavsky and his wife,
Cella, have been married for 26
years. They are the parents of
three daughters: Gladys (Mrs. Ye-
huda) Azulay, who teaches Heb-
rew School in Birmingham where
her husband is a senior in law
school; Irene (Mrs. Hersch) Hand-
ler, teaching at a boy's vocational
school in Haifa; and Judy, an ex-
change student majoring in edu-
cation at Hebrew University.
Dr. Malavsky, who freely
states his ambition is to educate
a concern his daughters ob-
viously share has one other
major Interest, his 14-month-old
grandson, Ira, Gladys' son.
Dr. Malavsky has been active in
numerous community organiza-
tions, among them B'nai B'rith
and the Broward Zionist Federa-
tion. Long an ardent Zionist, he
spoke out publicly for the fledgl-
ing state during 1947-48, and has
been outspoken in his support of
Israel and the UJA. A past presi-
dent of the Rabbinical Associa-
tion of Greater Miami, he has
served as chaplain of the Dade
County Jail and interim chaplain
at the VA Hospital in Miami and
has worked actively with the
Clergyman's Fellowship of Holly-
A former president of the
Broward Board of Rabbis, Dr. Ma-
lavsky is also a member of the
Executive Committee of Jewish

cently honored by the State of
Israel when he was presented
with the Shalom Peace Award.

An Exercise In Futility
However one feels about the publication of the secret
National Security Council papers, parts of it hold spe-
cial interest for those who have been concerned with
Isrcel's altitude toward United Nations resolutions which,
with rare exception, have been hostile to her interests.
In one colloquy on United States strategy to be used
during the India-Pakistan conflict, Henry Kissinger is
reported cs having said that the exercise (planned) in the
U.N. is likely to be an exercise in futility the U.N.
itself will in all probability do little to terminate the war.
Unhappily, it is because the United Nations has turned
out to be an exercise in futility not serving the cause of
universal peace but the selfish interests of each of its
member states -that Israel properly has refused to accept
its findings, which it considers anything but peace-making
in intent.
Demise Of Treiheit* No Great Loss
The question of Israel hus been a thorny one for Com-
munists throughout the world ever since the Soviet Union
cast its lot with the Arab nations. lews sympathetic as
well as those living in Russia to the Communist cause
found themselves in opposition to the party line with the
resulting difficulties that create in the authoritarian orga-
Charges now have been brought against Paul Novick
of the Freheit. one of the few remaining Yiddish language
newspapers, that he capitulated to Zionism. After some 50
years of Communist Party membership he is being forced
to defend his loyalty and part of his defense is that his
"flexibility" on the Middle East issue is necessary to the
Freheit's survival.
Much as we bemoan the passing of the Yiddish lan-
guage press, the demise of the Freiheit, even over this issue
where its interests seem to lie with the Jewish people,
would be no great loss.
Nothing To Stop Them
It is a sign of the times that the latest convention of
the Conservative movement rescinded the penalty of dis-
atnUiation of synagogues which conducted bingo games.
While the resolution which accomplished this also ex-
pressed distaste and condemnation of gambling for fund-
raising purposes, its wording reflected the change in syna-
gogue financial problems which has taken place since
the penalty was first approved 10 years ago.
Synagogues which maintain the bingo practice will
be studied to determine whether it is financially necessary
to continue. Alternative fund-raising programs are to be
suggested, but since these are known now it is likely that
the 50 or some congregations which now raise money
through bingo will be joined by many others. If they may
continue as members in good standing of the United Syna-
gogue of America, the Conservative parent body, there is
nothing to stop this questionable device for financing
Why So Many Arabs Are Loyal
The natural rate of increase among Israel's 450,000
Arabs is reckoned as the highest in the world by that
nations Health Ministry. Trachoma, malaria and tuber-
culosis, diseases which afflict most seriously Arab nations,
have almost been completely eliminated in Israel and
there has been an impressive fall in the infant mortality
rate, as well as the development of mother and child
services. The statistics in this area, and in employment and
education, speak well for the concern Israel has for all its
citizens and why so many of its Arab residents axe loyal
to the Jewish state.

is to get a Laotian government
demand that the U.S. cease
bombing the Ho Chi Minh Trail
in the southern Laotian pan-
The same aim of stopping the
bombing was behind the im-
mense stepup of North Viet-
namese activity in the air. This
has now forced the American
retaliatory bombing of airfields,
missile sites and radar installa-
tions in North Vietnam. This
followed an inner-governmental
crisis here.
THE Ql'ESTION was, quite
simply, whether the crucially
important B-52 bombers could
any longer be used in the Ho
Chi Minh Trail area, in view of
the vastly increased air threat
from the North Vietnamese.
President Nixon therefore made
his courageous decision in favor
of a major retaliatory effort.
North Vietnam had to be
warned, in fact, that the United
States has had about enough of
the North Vietnamese MIG-21s
and SAM-2 missiles.
If it were not for the U.S.
Senate, neitlvr the intensified
air war nor the ground drive in
north Laos would have much
long-term importance. But to
predict the senatorial response
to Hanoi's campaign, one needs
only to read the remarks about
the intensified air war by some
of the Senate's countless Demo-
cratic presidential candidates.
bined a maximum of ignorance
of the situation on the ground
in Southeast Asia with a rock-
bottom minimum of national
mindedness. It can be imagined,
then, how these senators and
many more like them will re-
act if and when a Laotian gov-
ernment adds an official re-
quest for an end of all U.S.
bombing of the Ho Chi Minh
Hanoi s campaign is very
shrewdly planned, in fact. There
are three further things to be
said about it, however. In the
first place, the trouble President
Nixon may run into during the
next congressional session is
partly of his own Administra-
tion's making.
Secretary of Defense Melvin
Laird to do the nuts-and-bolts
work on his Vietnamization pro-
gram. The results, produced by
extreme deviousness, were down-
right awful. Some of these re-
sults have been corrected by the
President himself at the con-
siderable expense, for instance,
of leaving a fair number of U.S.
helicopters in the residual force
in South Vietnam until more
South Vietnamese can be trained
for them.
The worst result, however,
was the failure to tell the coun-
try, openly and plainly, what
were the minimal requirements
of successful Vietnamization as
long as North Vietnam remains
on the offensive. One of those
requirements was and still
is active American air inter-
diction of the Ho Chi Minh
Trail. This is a job the South
Vietnamese obviously cannot
take over.
SECOND, however, there is
another side of the ledger. Ha-
, noiV campaign, beyond doubt, is
I a shrewd, bold throw made

Sees It
NEW YORK The full field is out now at the start of
Phase Two. Muskie s declaration has been made, and Lindsay's,
too. and Humphrey's is to come soon, and Vance Hartko and
Shirley Chisholm are campaigning actively. The question during
Phase One was whether the candidates could get recognition,
money and enough support to avoid being a figure of fun. It
was the phase of the concealment that doesn't conceal. Phase
Two is that of the declaration that doesn't surprise, the period
of the shakedown before the battle. Phase Three, the primaries,
i- the battle which eliminates some but doesn't assure victory
for anyone. Phase Four -the conventions -- is the showdown
within the parties that breaks everyone's heart except the two
final adversaries. Phase Five, the election itself, breaks one of
those two.
There is little chance that either Rep. McCloskey on Nixon's
left, or Rep. Ashbrook on his right, will take the nomination
from him. In a sense they serve Nixon's purpose by locating him
where he always likes to be in the middle. Yet currently he
feels the pressure from the Republican right more keenly. Hence
his promise, for the present, to keep Spiro Agnew on his ticket
THE CAST OF CHARACTERS among the Democrats isn't
nearly so symmetrical. John V. Lindsay's wooing the Democratic
nomination came with unseemly haste after his farewell to the
Republicans, and recalled Hamlet's complaint about his mother
that the funeral baked meats of her first husband's death did
coldly furnish the marriage tables of her second husband. There
is more gloom in the Lindsay camp than was expected: Even
before his candidacy had taken fire, it strikes many as a burned-
out case.
Congiesswoman Shirley Chisholm has grieved Lindsay and
McGovern by her bid to split the liberal black vote, but she has
grieved her black political brothers even more. As the dearest
liberal candidate in the field. Sen. McGovern is bound to do
creditably in the primaries, but is likely to falter in the conven-
tion. His weakness is that of Aristides: People arc numbed by
his liberal virtues, and are tired of hearing him called the Ju As a result, they don't take much note of his position on issues
which will prove fatal, since McGovern is either an issue
man or he Ls nothing.
OF THE TWO MINNESOTA candidates, Gene McCarthy is
no longer mining the Ivy League and big state universities as he
did in 1968, but has shifted to the somewhat squarer student
audiences of the interior, where he gets some response. He is
still low-key. antihero, very much his own man with his own
political style. Yet one can't help feeling (distorting Victor
Hugo a bit) that tinier than the tread of tiny armies is the
power of an idea whose hour has passed.
Hubert Humphrey is too tenacious to be written off BO looa
Along with Henry Jackson he has the support of the big unions,
especially since Nixon has angered George Meany, and hell's only
fury madder than a woman scorned is a labor leader humiliated
before his men. Humphrey is a onfident pro by now, and he has
the money to make his run. But 1968 will not down, as Witness
the boorish fanatical heckling he got at Philadelphia fro a
small band of left-wing scientists. Despite James Cain, the post-
man rare'.y rings a second time, especially if the dog Chased hint
away the first time.
AS FOR SAM YORTY, I gather that his presi
design is more than a publicity gimmick, that he actual v be-
lieves the right-wing voters will respond to him national I"
the thirsty political desert, every man to his own mirage
It isn t clear yet whether Sen. Jackson's campaign is I
tion Mirage, too. He is having image-mixture trouble
Nixon, yes. But while Nixon has thus far got away wit
contradictions, Jackson's mixture puzzles people. He i- '
liberal on domestic issues for the conservatives to make a
of him, and his hard-line world view makes most liberals iptftter
and fume.
Accordingly, he hasn't started a prairie fire on the GaJluP-
Harris plains. Once in office a President can manage -
split image, and sometimes it even helps him. But a car. I
needs a simpler and more total image.
Sen. Muskie's candidacy is solidly based, slightly left-of-
center. He, too, doesn't light fires in the voter's heart, but he
does less polarizing of emotions than the rest, has kept his lead
pretty steadily and has shown a candidate's most telling quality
the capacity to survive. If in the end Kennedy ousts htm at
the convention, Kennedy will show more than survival power:
He will show the capacity to come back from the dead. Ir. that
case, Muskie will have been overcome by the triumph of Lazarus.

This is the season for parties and one of the biggest and
ricest wan June and Bob Gordons reception for their son Johnny
a::d his darling bride-to-be. Jane Gcltman. The shindig was held
at June's sister's lovely home in the South Lake area and every-
body in town was there. Janes mother, Mrs. Jerry Geltman
came down for the occasion and John's brother. Spencer, and his
wife, Sue. were home for the party as was his sister, Jill. The
list of people could be endless but just a few I remember, the
Bernle Milloffs, the Murray Levinsons, the Shelly Garsons, the
Wick Greenes, the Jack Yeslows, the Rubin Kleins.
The evening before this engagement recep'ion, June and
Mickey hold a 50th wedding anniversary party for their parents,
Alice and Abe Mailman; the sisters invited all of Alice and Abe's
friends to help them celebrate that wonderful occasion.
Cr & That same busy weekend. Celina and Irv Fishman took
over the Diplomat Country Club to celebrate the engagement
of their daughter Susan to Jerry Margolis, a local lad. This was
ajso a swinging occasion, as all of Celina and Irv*s friends and
young couples gathered and danced and drank ate and greeted
one another. Helping the Fishman and Margolis family cele-
brate were Dorothy and Mac Kline, Carolyn and Milton Caster,
Ann and Jack Pollard, Gloria and Al, Sherman, Sue and' Harry
Fermesly. Phyllis and Mel Haas, Gloria and Stan Greenspun,
Lois and Dick Solomon, Laurie and Fred Green, Shirley and

EDITOR, Jewish Floridian-Shofar:
"My boy goes to high school," a
fine, sweet-looking Jewish mother
said to me recently. "He has his |
lessons to do in the afternoon. On
Saturday and Sunday he is with
the school sports team. When he
graduates, I'm going to send him
to college. He'll have plenty to
occupy his time and strength
there, too. Why should I add to
his load by sending him to a Jew-
ish school? Isn't his own home
school enough for him on how to
be a good Jew?"
Well, the best way to answer it
is to ask, "What is Jewish educa-
tion?" And the best way to an-
swer that, is to ask again, 'What
is American education?"
Clearly, it isn't the arithmetic,
geography or the language which
are taught in the American public
school. It is rather the way a boy
or girl is taught how the Amer-
ican nation came into being, how
it was molded by the ideas which
were formulated in the Declara-
tion of Independence and the con-
stitution and the other ideas
of equality before the law, im-
partial justice, separation of
church and state, self-government,
which make up society and the
American way of life.
By the same token Jewish edu-
cation is not the teaching of the
Hebrew language or the training
of a child to read a bit humash or
a few words in the prayer book.
It is not teaching the child to
wear his hat always or to refrain
from writing or riding in a wheeled
vehicle on the Sabbath or to eat
no food that is not kosher.
These customs and forms are
but external marks which for some
time a long time to be sure
have covered up the true essence
of Jewishness and which in our
times are still observed by some
Jews and are disregarded by oth-
ers. These external marks and
manifestations of Jewish life vari-
ed from time to time, and from
country to country, and it is the
best proof of the living and pro-
gressive spirit of Judaism that
these marks were never raised to
the sanctity of holy canons, but
were always taken for what they
really were, temporary suits of
clothing, in a manner of speaking,
to be used and cared for, so long
as they are serviceable.
The main purpose of Jewish edu-
cation is therefore to impart to
the child, above all else, the prin-
ciples of basic Judaism which are
immutable and unchangable and
which always remain the same.
Such principles, for example, are
the adherence to one God and to
the miral rules which go hand in
hand with this one God, the rules
of the sanctity of human life, of
clean family fidelity, of responsi-
bility of parents for the material
and spiritual development of their
children, of immutable justice not
influenced by any outside consid-
eration of any sort whatever.
Secondly, Jewish education
means the teaching of Jewish his-
tory and cultural and spiritual de-
velopment. The good fortune of
the Jewish people is that Jews
need not color and pervert the
truth in order to teach their chil-
dren how Judaism was developed.
There are in Jewish history no
such figures as Peter the Great,
Napoleon, or Cortez, whose life
history must be heavily flavored
with a sugary syrup in order to
present them to the school child
in the guise of great, good men
whose aims and deeds were al-
ways Inspired by the highest mo-
tives, so as to make the child
proud of his forebears.
Jewish education requires noth-
ing but the truth to teach the
child that his people have given
to the world two out of the four
universal religions, and have heav-
ily influenced a third (Moham-
medanism), and that his people
produced not a single world con-
queror, have never embarked on
a career of conquest of other peo-
ples' homeland or property, and
have held in highest esteem schol-
ars, rather than warriors.
If Jewish education, like any
other education seeks to make
the child proud of his heritage
and anxious to help in preserving
it, the pride it seeks to implant in
the child has nothing in common
with the pride of, let us say, a
German who is taught that he be-
longs to the master race, or an
Englishman who is taught he is
the world's finest and purest gen-
It is rather the pride of spiritual
achievement in religion, ethics,
and clean decent living; pride of
higher standards in education and
family life; pride of contribution
to human civilization out of all
proportion to mere number of
Jewish individuals.
Pride like this leads to charity
and kindness, rather than to vio-
lence, oppression and injustice. It
is the mark of Jewish education,
therefore, that adds to the
positive features of American,

British or any other education. If
it does not soften the negative
features, it at least does not add
to them. An American Jew fumil.
iar with his Jewish heritage and
instilled with its spirit makes a
better American.
What better proof need there be
than to quote just one example
Justice Brandeis? There is one
more consideration to be kept in
mind. Ours is a materialistic age,
which holds that a dollar in the
hand is better than the heavenly
kingdom in the sky. Well, at this
point of view Jewish education is
a good investment. The time has
long passed when private prop-
erty was something sacred, and
when a man could be certain thai
the property he has acquired by
his best efforts will remain his to
enjoy, and his son's, after his de-
parture from this earth.
Whatever may be the final re-
sult of the present conflict between
free enterprise and collectivism,
one thing seems to be certain
at least for the next several gen-
erations property and its use will
be controlled by the state, and
severe restrictions will be imposed
en the way a man use his property
or derive income from it, and the
proportion of it which he may be-
queath to his son.
Jewish education, and the spirit-
uai and practical training whic h it
implants in the growing individual
will, on the contrary, always re-
main the sole property of that
The moral stamina built into
the soul and body of a Jewish child
by proper Jewish education will
never be taken away from him by
any Duce or Fuehrer or Poliburo
on earth, no matter how all-;>o-
erful any of them may be. It is
the best and safest inheritance
that a father and a mother can
bequeath to their children.

Rina Kishon
Her dark fringed eyes were un-
believably sparkling and her smile
was warm, friendly and expansive.
It was hard to reconcile this com-
posed young woman with the tale
she was telling. For this was Rina
Kishon, a former Miss Israel, and
her story was that of a little Ru-
manian refugee girl taken to Is-
rael with her parents.
Rina's story is the story of the
way a family was saved with the
help of fellow Jews here in the
United States it took $250 to
save Rina and American Jews
supplied that money. Without that
S250 who can say where Rina
Kishon might be or whether she
would even have survived?
But Jewry saved her, and she
went to Israel where she served in
the Israeli Army when she grew
up, and later graduated from Hai-
fa Technior as a draftsman.
And now she was touring th*
United States, pleading for the
same chance for thousands of oth-
er Jews. Here in Hollywood, she
was telling her story to a group
of 'intensely' interested men.
It was hard to reconcile Rina,
the little Rumanian refugee girl
and Rina, the pretty young wo-
man dressed in the nautical
American look of 1972. The fabric
of the scart holding back her long
black hair matched her long white
skirt; it was imprinted with navy-
like red and blue anchors. The
sleeveless shirt emblazoned with
I a matching red anchor was all
new and American and stylish,
but the men listening to her quiet,
I slightly-accented words knew that
her heart was in Israel.
Rina told of some of the young
people who are her friends in Is-
rael, and of one of her closest
friends who had lost her young
husband in the 1967 war, leaving
fatherless their two little boys.
The young mother loved again,
and now her new husband is also
serving in the Army. Fear is her
constant companion and news
broadcasts to be feared, for some-
times they tell of death and who
can become hardened to it?
Jews in America are the hope
of all these people in Israel, Rina
declared, in fact they are the hope
of all Jewry throughout the world
who wish to emigrate to Israel. It
\s only their money that is needed
not their lives, she said. And the
men listening responded magnifi-
cently to her appeal.

Amidst a message of furs, velvets, sequin
gowned ladies and tuxedoed gents. Fort Lauder-
dale'i Parker Playhouse got off to its sixth
sparkling season Monday night with the glorious
musical drama. "Man of La Mancha." The play
within a play, headed up by Jose Ferrer in the
dual role of Cervantes-Don-Quixote, Mauri K.
Wedge as Aldonza. and Tony Martinez as Sar.cho
proved once again to be a masterpiece of writing
and music.
Some of the local theatre buffs sjiotted in
the packed opening night audience were season

For the art-loving intermission wanderers, a
display of paintings, watercolors and prints
sponsored by The United Fund of Broward
County adorned the gallery walls. For some 200
invited guests, an after-thc-opening reception
was hosted by Zev and Yilmu Barman, Paul Holm
and Carllng Dinkier at I.e Club International
with members of the cast on hand to add just
enough pi/azz to the first-nighters' close-up-to-

New Years Eve kept the Hollywood social
folk in a whirl. Ringing out the old and ringing
In the new was no small task for those "teddibly"'
nopular loealites invited to the ever-so-many par-
ties that last night of 71. One had to be both
nimble-rooted and quick-witted, a champion of
logistics and a master of the disappearing act .
not to mention a very quick sipper.
With banner unfurled proclaiming Happy
Birthday to 7'2 Bev and Ruwt Scherfer hosted
a hum-dincer of a bash. The folk got on fam-
ously, for the guest list was a good mix of in-
terest inc personalities. Hollywood's combo law-
yer and magic man, Al (ioodman, and spouse
Carol, Sen. and Mrs. Lee Weissenborn, Dr. Bob
an,I Judy (ornfeld. Dr. Dick and Audrey Kinder
and a contingent of new and good looking faces
from North Miami.
Manwhilc, back at the Bennetts Mhat- Dr.
Lou and Bos) a large glass coffee table holding
a bounty of fondue and tasty nibblin's was the
local point of a very charming group toasting
in the new year. Some of the charmers were
Harry Schorr and his Hannah, Dr. Paul and
Kuth Rodcnsky. Fred and Henrietta Saltan.
Ksth>r and Alan Cordon and Dr. George and
DIs Crane. Sheldon Schaeffer escorted his red-
headed Dtane, who had topped her ensemble with
a marvelous gold beaded vest. Newcomers Dr.
Karl and Carol Morganstein made the Bennett
scene with friends Sonny and Betty KinkleMeln
an Morrle Cfcurtney brought along his svelte
better half Anita. She didn't Just get that way
accidentally, you know. Anita is the exercise
expert conducting classes at Emerald Hills
Country Club.
It was more than just a houseful. The patio
was up to its screens in ]x-ople at the annual
open-house Of that lovely twosome. Dr. Dave
and Elsie Speckle*-. Dr. Ray and Millie Nolan
seemed to be having quite a gay evening there,
ditto Al and VlafcSS K.llcrt. Dr. Charles and
sandy Friedman, Jack and Rosemarie Yeslow
and the Mori Levins.
Naftilj attired Sy Dunn and Art FrUnet were
getting the pgles for their very "with-it" images,
while .loan (Mrs. Sender) Stolove was receiving
her ^re of compliments. (The multi-colored
floor Iwngth skirt she sported was one of her own
super knit creations.) New Davie residents,
S.cln.y and Billy (iarwn, made the Hollywood
party scene, loo. Arriving late and in their most
formal bib and tucker were Jack and Myrna
L*V) and Dr. Saul and Millie Nit/.berg. They
breezed in from the Abe Mailman'* 50th anni-
versary party held earlier that evening. Happy-
New Year was heard to and from Dr. Milt and
Marilyn Myers, the Molt Perllns, the Don Shef-
lels. Mareap and Juokie Zb*r, Don and Ia* Her-
man, Joe and Selma Hopen and a houseful-and-
a-half more of new year celebrants.
And then for some it was on to the fJreen-
spuns. Stan and Gloria (she's a women's gift to
to golf game) entertained 65 at their digs. It
was informal and fun according to the guests;
featured in its numbers were such stalwart party-
goers as the Shermans (Al and Gloria), Howard
and Florence Fuerst, Norm and Gloria Wrubel,
Mae an;! Dorothy Klin.-, Paul and Maralyn An-
ton, the Irving Fishiuans, the Sam Sorins and
the Ted Sorins, Hilda and Hy Corn and Herman
and Rosemary Goodman.
Most of th? dashing-about-towners were then
off for breakfast to the Bill and Rita llowit
stronghold. Spotted along the buffet line of
table laden "breakfast-bountiful" were Mary
/Inn, Dr. Mel and Shirley Stone, Dr. Norm and
Nancy Alkin, Lenny- Romanik, Dr. Mort Baliek,
Sonny Roth tit rb, Dr. Leatty Peck and many,
many more.
So, whoojK'e. it's another year! May it be a
happy one for you and yours. It sure got off to
one grand start.

A top priority message was issued from
General Headquarters addressed to All Tioops
(and Good Friends). It was issued by Dr. Saul
and .Millie Xltzberg and Dr. Paul and Ruth
Rodcnsky with Subject: Ojx'ration New Year's
Day Open House, Code Name "Big Hangover."
With "Bloody Marys" and "Screwdrivers" as
fuel, and the Americana Brass Brand as Tactical
Support, all troops assembled at 1400 hours.
The invitation road 'This Is To Be Our Finest
Hour." and it was.
.Wou)d you.believe that most of the previ-
ously, mentioned New Year's Eve celebrants got
in a few hours sleep, either a change of makeup
or wardrobe and were at it again. And, with a
vengeance. Only this time during the daylight
hours and with a renewed vigor. .
A few of the many to'be congratulated for
standing tall on the party circuit were Mrke and
Charlotte Brodle, the Abe JPisehlers, Dr. Pete and
Dodle Weinstein. Dr. Mike and Mickey Segal. Bob
and Barb Roberts, Judge Jay and Nancy- Simons,
Dr. Alan and EsteHe Podia, John and Donna

The Crimson Tide of 'Bama never did come
in New Year's Day. The Nebraska Cornhuskers
saw to that and so did 16 guests of Bill and Pat
Cox who were there to view the massacre. Prior
to the game it was early supper and champagne
at Bill and Pat's divine lakeside homofires. Palm
Beach pals plus loealites Dr. Stan and Marcia
Silver, Dr. George and Iris Crane and Fred and
Henrietta Sultan made up the football-supper
Emerald Hills was a happy place to be when
a croup of teenagers made the scene for a grand
birthday party surprise brunch in honor of 16-
year-old Patti Finklesteln. She's *>iuiy and Betty
Finkletein' pride and joy. The party was planned
early enough so that the youngsters would not
miss a moment of the Dolphin-Colt encounter at
the Orange Bowl.
Loving every minute of the attentions of such
lariies as Ann Pollard, Terry Geronemus, Carolyn
Caster, EJI and Edith Sorln, and his ever-Iovin'
Gloria, Slan Greenspan was the only gent at
the table. The occasion was the Temple Sinai
Sisterhood luncheon honoring Stan's very good
friend. Dr. Howard Forest fdr his'lie'rviccs to the
temple youth groups. Howard's wife Florence.

at a table nearby. A proud day for the Fu^rsts,

Religious Bar Mitzvah
I in pie Hlior#in, I'onipano BcnHi
Jewish people
Rabbi Skop
throughout the
world, who fol-
low the weekly
reading! of the
Bible are in the
midst of a ser-
ies of stories
describing the
efforts of Moses
and his brother
Aaron t o free
their people
from the yoke
of the Kgyptian
Pharaoh and
his taskmasters,
centuries ago.
"Shlach es ami v'yavduni"
[ ... lei my people go that they
may serve me!" is the message of
Hie Jewish leaders to Pharaoh.
Freedom comes first then
commitment to one's God.
The struggle for freedom ro-
ligious, social and political has
been continuous throughout world
history. It is basic to the story of
Chanukah and the labors of the
Maccabees. It is at the toot of the
I assover Kxodus from the slavery
in Egypt; and it is still basic to
the struggle in Viet Nam, Ireland
and in Pakistan in our own time.
The right to self-determination
and the right to freedom of both
Individuals; and peoples is funda-
ment a 1 to the practice of demo-
cratic living. It is summed up in
our American ideal of "man is
born with certain inalienable
rights ... to life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness." '
Granted the blessing of_ freedom
comes the opportunity tjj> commit
one's labors to "serving God"
doing what is "good" for bWnaAv
ity. In America, the var'ying'etn^
nic groups have actiievef}'this .n->

Bui America cannot yet boast
I being a' true democracy. A
Jew cannot yet become a viefcJ,
president .or. a., president. TJic
black man still is far from achiev-
ing his freedom to social equality
and democratic rights. There is
si ill much to be done to overcome
Prejudice, hatred and bigotry. As
the wise Rabbi Tarfon taught,
"You may not complete the
entire task, but do not desist from
1 lying."
We Americans still have a long
way to go to bring to fruition the
dream of our founding Fathers to
establish a true democracy where
the rights and freedom of every
man will be protected and every
citizen will be free to work, study
and live wherever he wishes.
This freedom is easy to talk
'bout, but difficult to achieve. It
implies the right to a job without

can afford to live, the end of bus-
ing and the return to neighbor-
hood schools providing the best in
education and facilities for all
citizens free to live in any neigh-
borhood of their choice.
This will require basic changes
in our emotions, overcoming our
traditional prejudices, and commit-
ing every American to the demo-
cratic teaching of individual
rights. Not only is this good dem-
ocracy but it is also true Judaism.
The plea of Moses relayed to
Pharaoh, "Shlach es ami .
v'yavduni," "Let my people go .
to freedom that they may
serve Me and do what is just
and right to every man," is a les-
son still to be learned and put

e Books That Were Worthwhile Reading
ll DED IX THE MELANGE of books read re-
ftly by your reviewer are several worthwhile
Wk Tale* of Israel, -edited- by Dov- Noy,' >
(University of Chicago Press, pa-
perback $2.95) is a selection of 71
tales chosen from some 2,000 in
the archives at the Hebrew Uni-
versity. Secular and religious tales
are represented; they have been
drawn from Jewish communities in
ill parts of the world. Each tale
is preceded by an explanatory note
on source, etc. A worthwhile book.
Black -Anti -Semitism and Jewish Racism
taken Books, paperback $1.95) is a collection of
lessays by four blacks and seven Jews. Most of the
lections stemmed from the N.Y. 1968 teachers'
rike. All agree that anti-Jewish feelings exist
(long the blacks, but they disagree on the depth
lid spread. To Harry Golden's comment, I find little
this book with which to agree and much that is
disagreeable." I must add that some rabbis "rush in,
armed with ignorance, where angels fear to tread."
Jewish Medals by Daniel M. Friedenberg (dis-
tributed by Crown Publishers, $10) is an account
of J.wish medals from the Renaissance to the Fall
of Napoleon, 1503-1815 with photographs. The book
was published for the Jewish Museum of New York
atid is a collector's item.
The. New Encyclopedia of the Opera by David
Ewan (Hill and Wang, $15) is a vast informative
and entertaining storehouse of opera facts. His-
torical data concerning all aspects of opera are
included. Opera enjoyment will be enhanced by the
use of the book. The volume would have been im-
proved by cross-indexing, however.
The Scorpion by Albert Memmi, translated
from the French by Eleanor Levieux (Grossman
Publishers, $8.95) is a novel by the Tunisian Jew
who authored the memorable "Portrait of a Jew."
Memmi places a strain on the general reader who
has to identify three typographical variations which
are not too readily distinguishable. (Dos Passos did
this trick much better.) One must recognize which
type indicates when the author is speaking, when his *
deceased brother's diary is used and when the author
is quoting ^from ".lytr'^r/""'"' APt'hflr '""TV^f *
impedes easy comprehension is the failure to trans-
late many Tunisian terms and areas. However,
once these two hurdles are cleared, the author pre-
sents an intellectually delightful book.
Ben Deutschman's In -\ Small Town a Kid goes
to Schule (Aurora Publishers. $4.50) is a collection
of reminiscences of his life some 40 years ago. Some
readers may become slightly nostalgir, a few will
be bored and most will say, "So what?
The Jurieo-C'hriatian Heritage by J. Courtenay
(Holt, Rinehart & Winston, paperback) is a text
book that stresses the ethical system sired by
Judaism, but, according to the book, was brought to
full bloom by Christianity. Jewish authors are con-
spicuous by their absence. Note is not taken that
ihe "Golden Rule" is from the Jewish Leviticus
19:18 and was not created by Matthew. The major
portion of the book is readings from Christian

The Rutenberg Legacy
llRTY YEARS AGO last week (Jan. 3, 1942) one of
Ihe great personalities of Jewish Palestine passed
\y. It was his wish that no city, village, street or park
should bear his name, but he left a
legacy which will not soon be forgotten.
The man was Pinhas Rutenberg, and his
legacy was a dual one.
On the physical scene he was the engi-
neer who harnessed the waters of the
Jordan .River, built the. country's first'

Jewish Statistics
AOCOBDOra TO THE American Jewish Yearbook,
there are now 5.87 million Jews in America.
About the same as last year, but percentage-wise, it
has diminished, since the general
American population has increased
The country with the largest
population is the country with the
smallest Jewish population. China,
with some 800 million people, has
a Jewish population of only 21.
The world Jewish population is
now estimated at 14 million. That
is to say we have recuperated somewhat from our
great losses, but we never were a numerous people.
Jews have been among the great mathematicians,
but as a people, we are not good at multiplying.
While all the world dreads a population explosion,
Israel would welcome one.
If we do not have numbers, we give the im-
pression of it. Consider Israel. One of the very
small countries, but in the press it gets more atten-
tion than three or four European countries com-
bined. What is the reason? The answer is really
simple. The smaller you are, the more you have to
stretch yourself. That is why Golda Meir and
Moshe Dayan are known throughout the world.
Little Israel has to stand up against 18 Arab na-
tions plus Russia.
The mention of Mark Twain explains one rea-
son for small Jewish numbers. Mark Twain's daugh-
ter, Clara, was married to the music maestro
Gabrielowitch, a Jew. But the children of this mar-
riage are not in the Jewish fold.
Intermarriage and assimilation have resulted
in the loss of millions. Jews began to be lost very
early, in Biblical times, we had lost 10 tribes.

village, the impetus which propelled it toward becoming
the country's metropolis.
He was a promoter and a financier on a grand scale,
strange qualifications for one who had begun life as a
Russian revolutionary. He helped to create the port of
Tel Aviv, founded the Palestine Airways Corp. and built
Tel ,Aviv's first airport. ... \

And it was out of his bitter experiences in those days
that he penned (he second legacy, as expressed in his
will. They are words that are all but forgotten today but
should be recalled and repeated:
"The division of our people and communities into
parties and sects has always been our disaster. Civil
strife has brought us to the brink of the abyss. It it
does not cease, ruin confronts us.
"Therefore it is my desire and will to the Yishuv
and the Jewish youth growing up in its midst always to
remember that it is hot this or that Jewish sect or party
which is persecuted and downtrodden by others but the
Jewish people as a whole. Whether or net we want it, we
are brethren in distress. Let us realize this and be
brethren in life, in Creative endeavor, in action and in
He willed his estate to a fund which would provide
for the education of Jewish youth in that spirit, free of
political coloration. On Mt. Carmel today the magnificent
building known as the Rutenberg Centre provides facili-
ties and staff for such a program. Most tourists who stay
at the Dan Carmel Hotel are hardly aware that the
great walled estate next door is part of the Rutenberg
legacy, dedicated to the rearing of a generation which
will recognize that the, Jewish people is one, irrespective
of narrow partisanship or fragmentized ideologies. In
these days it serves as a Centre for hundreds of young
people from overseas, who learn of the Israel of the

year under its new chairman, Melvin Dubinsky,
who has given many years of sen-ice to Jewish
causes locally in his city of St.
Louis nationally, and to Israel.
The towering figure of Mr. Du-
binsky can be seen at all national
Jewish gatherings. One of the
most popular leaders of the United
Jewish Appeal, he is known for his
substantial philanthropic contribu-
tions, and his energetic participa-
tion in the guidance of the UJA..
He served as a national chairman of the UJA in
addition to serving on its executive committee and
aschairman of the UJA campaign cabinet.
Mr. Dubinsky's extraordinary dedication to
Jewish interests can be seen from the fact that he
is also one of the leaders of the Joint Distribution
Committee, was the first national chairman of the
National Community Leadership for Israel Bonds,
is active in the American Jewish Congress and a
member of the boards of the Welzmann Institute of
Science, the Hebrew University and the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. He is also a member of the
National Commission of the B'nai B'rith Hillel
Foundations and a past president of the Jewish
Federation of St. Louis, and one of the ihrec Amer-
ican members of the Jewish Agency Executive in
Mr. Dubinsky's record in the field of non-Jewish
philanthropic activities is also impressive. He is a
member of the president's council of the St. Louis
University, a trustee of the Cardinal Glennon Hos-
pital for Children in St. Louis, a member of the
Executive of the United Fund in St. Louis and is
associated with the leadership of a number of other
local educational and philanthropic projects.
A dynamic speaker, he has addressed communi-
ties all over America on behalf of the UJA. He
visits Israel frequently and is a ranking participant
in UJA Study Missions to Europe and Israel. Few
people know that he was a champion ice skater of
Olympic stature when, in 1936, he Tflrned down a
request to participate because the competition was
being held in Hitler's Germany.
The United Israel Appeal which Mr. Dubinsky
now heads succeeding Max M. Fisher is the
major beneficiary of funds raised by the United
Jewish Appeal. The Jewish Agency is its agent in

The Russians are only the latest of thousands of immigrants to come to
freedom. Not for peace, but for peace of mind. And they are making
tremendous sacrifices to achieve that peace of mind. To live as Jews in a free
Jewish society. To see their children grow up as they wanted to grow.
Spiritually, emotionally, physically, intellectually.
To the Russian Jews, no sacrifice is too great for this freedom. They risk
everything, even their lives when they try to leave for Israel. They must leave
everything behind. They need help.
A total of 50,000 immigrants are coming to Israel this year. And the people
of Israel cannot contribute to their support that is our responsibility.
Not too long ago, they were immigrants themselves. They are alive today
because they know they cannot afford the luxury of deluding themselves about
their situation. Thus, they spend nearly 80 per cent of their taxes on defense.
We must help to fill their human needs. It is our promise. Pay or make your'
pledge now. Perhaps, just perhaps, you can even help reunite a family.
