"With more than 5930,000 al- i jf this year's campaign,

the expectation is that 1972 will
mark the first year that this
community will go over the $1
million mark. This takes into ac-
count $150,000 pledged in last
year's campaign by people who
have not yet been approached and
who will undoubtedly at least re-
peat their pledges or last year. It
does not take into account pos-
sible increases from last yrar's
pledges and potential pledges from
recent residents and now donors

medium volunteers will communi-

knowledgeable sources, more than
5.CO0 have left Russia already thi<
year compared! to about 1,000 in

Post Office Destroys Matzos
WASHINGTON (WNS)-Postal authorities have "disposed
of" 20,000 pounds of matzos which had been mailed to the Soviet
Embassy here for transmission to Soviet Jews. The mail campaign,
organized by B'nai B'rith, was meant to dramatize the plight of
Soviet Jewry. The Embassy refused to accept the packages which
had piled up in the basement of the main post office here. Team-
sters Local 701 of North Brunswick N.J., had offered to pick up and
deliver the matzos to charitable organizations. Sen. Harrison A.
Williams, Jr.. (D.-N.J.) is asking post office officials for a "full
explanation" of why the matzos were destroyed.
500 Immigrants Arrive For Passover
TEL AVIV (WNS)In a specially organized operation, 500
immigrants from all over the world were brought to Israel just
before the holiday, so that they could be settled in the Holy Land
in time for Passover. Hotels were booked to capacity by local and
foreign tourists, and traffic jammed the roads although buses and
train equipment were in operation. An offer by the Reform syna-
gogue in Tel Aviv to hold a Seder in an immigrant hostel in Jaffa
was rejected by Rabbi Mordechai Kirsht'.um of the Jewish Agency.
Hussein Meets With Nixon, Rogers
WASHINGTON (WNS)King Hussein of Jordan met with
President Nixon in the White House and then lunched with Secre-
tary of State William P. Rogers at the State Department recently
One topic of discussion was the king's plan for a federation of tht
Israeli occupied West Bank and Jordan, but White House spokesman
Ronald Zeigler told newsmen after the meetings, "We are not
commenting on the substance of the plan at all." He also said that
Hussein's proposal for an autonomous Palestine "is a recorganiza-
tion plan after a peace agreement is reached in the Middle East
or between Israel and Jordan."
Syrian Official Cancels Discussion
NEW YORK (WNS) Dia-Allah el Fattal, counselor of the
Syrian Mission to the United Nations, cancelled a scheduled discus-
sion on the situation of Syrian Jewry with members of the World
Union of Jewish Students, when he learned that one of the three
was an Israeli. Fattal said he would meet with "any Jewish person"
other than an Israeli. Martin Salowitz, North American representa-
tive of the World Union of Jewish Students, said a new meeting,
without an Israeli in the delegation would be asked for.

\ More Than A Political Question
The problems of South American Jews include the un-
settled politics of many of the nations and other factors as
well. In a recent visit to Israel, a Chilean cabinet member
made it clear that there are r.o political obstacles to coop-
eration between his government and Israel. President
Allende of that country, in a recent discussion with the
president of the Union of Rabbis of Latin America, prom-
ised that he will not allow any discrimination against the
community of 30,000 Jews.
That substantial community, however, has only one
rabbi and he is so aged that replacement, or at least addi-
tional help, is required. But in spite of the difficulty in find-
ing rabbis who speak Spanish, positions were filled re-
cently in Guatemala. Costa Rica and Peru. The concern
with Jewish survival outside of Israel, it is explained
is more than a political question and requires imaginative
steps, such as training seminary students in the language
of countries where they might be needed.
Hadassah Unfolding New Program
As it celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, Ha-
dassah is unfolding a program which shows why this
organization of 350,000 the largest women's organization
in the United States continues to be as strong as ever.
Instead o/ devoting all its time and energies to Isiael.
as it has done most of its life, Hadassah is about to ask
its more than 1,400 chapters to do social service in their
own communities. Not that its support of Israel will be less-
ened, but Hadassah found that in devoting itself to the one
puipose of raising money for Israel it was neglecting much
of the volunteer work for which it achieved early fame.
All the money it raises will still go to Israel.
The new program will be released at Hadassah'*-. na-
tional convention in August by the American Affairs De-
partment. It will commit the local chapters to send mem-
bers into such fields as health, youth and education. Hav-
ing let it be known at the recent World Zionist Congress
that it considers the strength of the diaspora of paramount
importance, Hadassah will support its word with the kind
of deeds for which it earned international acclaim.
Resolutions Will Be Revealing
The recent Black Political Convention was notable
primarily for the manner in which the more militant dele-
Gates took over control. Strong nationalists, they view
attempts at integration a failure and thus join with a ma
jority of whites in opposing the busing of school children,
} referring neighborhood control of schools where they can
t'^ach their own brand of segregation.
In line with their belief that they are being oppressed
b / colonialists, the same group of delegates pushed through
a resolution in the closing hour of the convention calling
for the dismantling of the State of Israel, which they claim
is oppressing the Arabs. Moderate black leaders have de-
nied that this represents a majority view and have indi
cated that when the 60-member steering committee releases
the text of all resolutions next month the anti-Israel position
will be changed. We will await these resolutions with great
interest, for they will tell us much of the future course of
the black movement in this country.
An Opportunity For Study
American and Canadian scholars are excited about
tiie decision of the Soviet Union to sell manuscripts per-
taining to Jewish life in Eastern Europe 'o the National
Library in Ottawa. Some of them at least 1,000 years old,
v/ere sealed away in the Soviet State Library since the
revolution in 1917, and will afford an opportunity for study
of Russian Jewish lore that has for too long been denied.
WASHINGTON < "One other
ixtint positively demands to be
made about the busing contro-
versy, which seems to be tearing
a lot of jieoplc to bits. It con-
cerns the cscai>o of minority
groups from exclusion and in-
justice a process that has
been far too little studied.
Our current plethora of guilt-
rid en Americans talk as though
exclusion and injustice for ev-
ery minority were permanent
American specialties. The con-
trary is actually true.
JAPAN, at present, has no
less than five very harshly ex-
cluded minorities.
There are: the local children
of black ar.d white American
soldiers, and three groups of
pure Japanese blood whose ori-
gin are also lost in the mists
of history, the Kta people, the
Fox people and. incredibly
enough, "the un-pcrsons."
In England, too, black citi-
zens began to feel exclusion,
prejudice and In just ic" just as
soon as their numbers began
to mount. In this country alone,
in the whole modern world, have
fair numbers of lormerly ex-
cluded minority groups almost
wholly escaped.
IT HAS hapi>ened fairly re-
cently. What are now railed the
"ethnic groups" suffered serious
job discrimination, housing dis-
crimination and other forms of
exclusion only four decades ago.
Today, however, their situation
i- just the same as lhat of the
once-dominant WASPs.
Only 25 years ago, the Chi-
nese and Japanese situation was
worse, if anything, than that of
our black minority today. The
black minority never suffered
anything like the Asian lend
laws of the West Coa^t stntes,
which the Supreme Court only
struck down in 1948. Today,
however, the Chinese and Japa-
nese situation is far superior, on
average, to that of the poor old
It is perfectly cleai, too. what
produced the escapes from ex-
cliuion of these minorities. The
secret can be put in one word:
AM- THE formerly excluded
minorities got better and better
jobs, some by degrees, while the
Chinese and Japanese got better
jobs with an astonishing rush,
despite their supposedly fatal
different skin color. As osch
minority*! average job status im-
proved. >ts group status propor-
tionally. For all of them in the
end. exclusion, prejudice and in-
justice were thus left behind, for
all practical purposes.
In the case of the black mi-
nority in America, a much more
terrible past history and very
heavy and continuing economic
handicaps both make the escape
from exclusion r.nd injustice a
lot more difficult. But experi-
ence has still shown that es-
cajie will surely result, if the
model of the previous escapes
can only bo followed. The se-
cret again Ls jobs.
That hooks the matter dir ly onto the busing row, because
the gateway to decent jobs is
decent education. No power on
earth can terminate the exclu-
sion and injustice suffered by
black Americans, so long as an
actual majority of black school-
leavers are not given the simple
educational tools to get and hold
decent jobs. That is where we
arc today.
if school desegregation by
busing would provide the nee led
educational tools, we ought to
Nil on a huge scale. The school
data plainly show however, that
tin- is not true. Mere desegrega-
tion does little or nothing to
overcome the terrible educa-
tional retardation that affl'cts
the average black child in school.
Hence busing li phony cure.

That- leave* Viro* ofheY Sure. being dispensed" by ghetto
but this cure is now widely fon
sidered worthless. It was said,
for instance, that "there Is not
a shred of evidence that a com-
pensatory education program .

words writes for a great New

Max Lerner
Sees It
NEW YORK When I saw "The Godfather" I felt
wrapped in a strange cocoon of violence that was almost com-
forting, because the characters were familiars as in a TV
serial. We sometimes call such pleasures "escape" stuff. But
we are not escaping in the sense of seeking to get away from
our humdrum lives. Instead we try to find a more ordered
form for the experience of violence all around us. The form is
a reality fable about the Mafia. At one point the heir apparent
to the Godfather, answering the innocent outsider girl he is
wooing, implies that what the "families do in their killings
and what governments do in wielding power is much the same,
and she feels consoled. But is it? Is the nation only a more
generalized Mafia, and is man under law only a wolf to other
wolves? If so, then law Ls not only imperfect, it Ls meantnvless,
and only fang and claw count in a social jungle of predator
and prey.
I like Santayana's distinction between "power" and "domi-
nation." The state is power, and if it is anywhere near a
democracy, the people choose those who are to carry the
burden of power as well as its wild, sweet headiness. But domi-
nation crops up everywhere, from the iir-bonds and family to
the gang hunting-pack, to the pecking order in a corporation
or trade union, to a mass rally or a guerrilla band. It is de-
livered by brute strength or force of personality, or from the
barrel of a gun. They operate within the cracks left by the
hypocrisies of law and morals.
Wc shall always have domination, world within end. The
question is whether we can bring the uglier forms of domina-
tion hijacking, rackets, blacki-t-. -hoot-outs- under the
control of law.
THE MORE LIKELY PARALLEL to "The Godfather" is
the struggle inside violent political organizations. The exam-
ples tumble out of all the recent press dispatches. There i>- the
French case, when a Renault plant guard killed a worker and
his fellow-Maoist guerrillas responded like any Mafia "fam-
ily"by kidnapping one of the minor executives. They got
caught in the whipsaw of an intense public reaction and lost
much of their left-liberal support, perhaps because the French
Mill recall the long day of the colonels ami the "plasttquos" and
the ultra-right terror against De Gaulle.
The IRA terror in Northern Ireland is more complex, since
't is mixed up with nationalist furies and religious discrimina-
tion, which even the new British direct rule Ls unlikely to re-
volve But take the lethal fratricide of the left and ultra-left
in Italy, which threatens to turn Milan and North Italy into a
vendetta area, as Sicily once was.
One of my more interesting encounters in Europe was a
luncheon with Giangiacomo Feltrinelli, of "Doctor Zhivago"
fame, on a publishing matter. I would have been startled if a
time machine had told me the attractive, too intense young
publisher across the table would be found dead several years
later, near a powerline pylon outside Milan, with dynamite
sticks around him. No one is yet clear how it happened, but
everyone is clear that somehow it came out of the inner family
war between the Communist left and the Maoist ultra-left to
which Feltrinelli belonged.
THK MOST GKISI.Y CASE is that of the "United Red
Army," an urban guerrilla coalition of two tiny ultra-left splinter
groups in Japan, which hid from police in the winter hills and
carried out executions of a dozen or score of their own com-
rades. The charges were "bourgeois doviationism" in one case
because a woman was pregnant, in another because a man had
brought his wife and child with him to the hideout. It was a
manic movement, and the woman who dominated the kangaroo
courts had a sick, twisted mind. But the parallel between the
urban guerrilla executions and the Mafia garrotings is a kin-
ship that would shock both. If anything, one must find the
Mafia less terrifying, since it doesn't get its sadism mixed up
with high political principles but acts only for greed, pride and
The paradox of "The Godfather" is that the monsters are
human. Father and sons lov? each other, they are tender to
tlvir immediate families, they live joyously at weddings and
christenings, they celebrate all the rites of passage. But even the
best of them, Michael, who once made a bid to break away,
has planned the mass killing of his rivals to take place while
he is in church as the new Godfather.
It is death against life all the way, and the scary thing
RbQUt the great succes- of novel and film is that the triumph
ol death may be what lures us to both.

Chief Rabbi Allowed To Leave Egypt
PARIS (JTA) Egypt's for-
mer Chief Rabbi. Haim Douek,
is in Paris after leaving Cairo
secretly March 14.
In an interview with the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency here.
Rabbi Douek, 68, termed his es-
cape "a miracle." He warned
about the suffering Jews in Arab
countries and revealed how he
had been forced to falsify facts
in two interviews given to for-
eign journalists who saw him
in Cairo.
Rabbi Douek refused to give
details about how he was al-
lowed to leave Cairo. Very little
is known about international ef-
forts making his departure pos-
sible, but Jewish circles here
said they believed both the In-
ternational Red Cross and the
French Consulate in Paris had
Rabbi Douek revealed that in
June 1967 he had bten com-
pelled to misinform journalists
of the New York Times and of
the French-Tunisian weekly
"Jeune Afrique."
At that time Rabbi Douek had
told the journalists that no Jews
had been arbitrarily arrested in
Egypt during and after the Six-
Day War. An Inspector of the
Interior Ministry had been pres-
ent at his meeting with the
journalists, Rabbi Douek told
JTA. He had coached him be-
fore the meeting and during the
interview sat behind the jour-
nalists and directea the chief
rabbi's answers.
Rabbi Douek, who arrived in
Paris with his daughters and
eldest son, carrying only one
small suitcase of ciothos. said
he had protracted difficulties in
obtaining an exit visa and had
to leave all his belongings be-
hind. Cairo's Jews learned a' out
their rabbi's departure only a
few hours before his Air France
flight left Cairo Airport.
Asked what he intended to do,
the rabbi told JTA that at 68
he was not making any plans
for the future. He will probably
stay in France several months,
he said.
Concerning the future of
Egypt's Jews, Rabbi Douek said,
"nobody will replace me in
Egypt,'" and that the Alexandria
Jewish community would "prob-
ably disappear" without a spir-
itual leader. He said he believed
there were still between 45C
and 500 Jews in Egypt. There
were 80,000 Jews in Cairo be-
fore Israel's War of Independ-
ence in 1948. and 2.500 'eft when
the Six-Day War broke out hi
1967. Since then some 1.500
Jews have been expelled or left

***+*+****m***0000................, mnAnj-injvum-
I had Seder dinner with two Moslems! And this was a the
home of Dorothy and Jesse Fine, with whom the Nevins family
has shared a family-type relationship for many years.
Now for those who know Dorothy it's a fact that bein^' in-
vited to the Fine home is a very special thing, for Do-othy
really has a flair for putting an evening together. Whether its
the fabulous food (which can't be underrated) or the com-
bination of guests, her invitations are always prized and eve-
rings are never dull.
Therefore this member of the Nevins family was hardly
startled when Joseph O'Derindi joined us on the Fine patio on
th<* first night of Passover. Kb pale green embroidercl robe and
the three carefully etched soars on each cheek did pique my
curosity a bit, however. Introductions were in order and wo
learned that Joseph is a student from Nigeria enrolled at Miami-
Dade Junior College and although a Moslem had wanted to join
a Jewish family for Passover dinner. So did Razi Mashkouri.
another student at M-DJC, also a Moslem who followed Joseph
out to the patio. Razi hails from Teheran. The boys seemed
in-mediately at home and joined the conversation along with the
younger members of our own families.
Talk quite naturally centered on them and Razi, who was
the more vocal of the two, told us that he was the son of a
Persian rug exporter and had 13 brothers and sisters ranging
from six to 35-years-old. He ig the only one in his family to
come to this country and in order to prepare himself for the
study he wanted, he spent two years in California living with a
foster family and learning English. Now he is living near his
college with three other Iranian boys all of whom ho met here
in South Florida. His subject of study is architecture and he
hopes to return to Iran and build homes there.
Joseph, whose English accent made his speech a bit more
difficult to follow, told us that he came from Yonibaland in
N-.geria and had been in this country two years studying His
green robes were typical native dress and the scars on his cheeks
were tribal marks also typical of his fellow countrymen.
My place at the table in the dining room for the traditional
Passover Seder was between these two boys and it was interest-
ing for me to observe how absorbed these two young Moslems
were in the Jewish services we read. They joined in all the re-
sponsive reading and took their turns at reading portions of the
Hagadah themselves. Incidentally, being Moslem, they would not
partake of Bur sacramental wine and Dorothy had provided grape
juice for them.
When we got to tne eating portion of the evening, both boys
seemed to enjoy the food although Joseph wasn't too fure about
how to handle matzo balls. However with the aid of a knife, fork
anc. spoon, he did get them down and seemed to enjoy them and I
wondered whether I would manage as well in his home. After
the meal he stood up and made a very touching speech thanking
the Fines for their invitation. Razi asked whether he could take
one of the Hagadahs with Mm as he wanted to read it over
again as he said his English was not good enough for him to
comprehend everything at the first reading.
The evening was a memorable one and a Seder I'm sure that
those of us at the table won't forget for a long time. Among our
American group of youngsters, incidentally was a 17-yea--old
boy from Puerto Rico who was visiting Dorothy's cousins. Melva
and Dean Hirchfield and their young daughter, Betty Jc for
the holidays. Can't say Dorothy and Jesse didn't bus us in from
all directions'.

Paging Elijah
(A Seven Artt. Feature)
The Passover season is a good
time to lake another look ai
His name means "My Lord is
God," and his recorded life in the
Bible and his imagery In Jewish
lore tell us about what Juiaism
strives to accomplish in people
and in society at large.
Il was Elijah who faced up to ;:
cruel king and denounced him for
his iniquity and inequity.
So Elijah's feats long ago
branded into the Jewish soul the
im|)ortance of justice. Xo person
should be deemed so high and lofty
as to be unaccountable for a fail-
ure in fairness.
Thus the Bible. But. in post-
Biblical days, Elijah became a
symbol of moailanlmi.
In simpler terms, messianism
represents the Hebraic conviction
that society is not stagnant, and
man Ls capable of moving upwards
In his- ethical conduct Vva* said to have soared into the
tioavens at the end of his earthly
Elijah became the cue name for
the possibility of upward accom-
plishments in the moral r%-alm.
There are people and philosophies
Which say men are anchored to
Itheir present status, that human j
nature has us anchored to strife,
hostility and inequality.
The figure of Elijah says no to
all this. We can become better.
Thousands of ttorii were spun
fcy our forefathers about Elijah
Jn most of them he Ls the Irlend of
1 he |>oor, the champion >.f the op-
pressed and distressed, the mes-
senger of that better world which
we can attain if only we work at
eliminating the roadblocks to a
liner future.
And Elijah is the unseen guest '
of the reality of the invisible, a
place setting Ls prepared for Elijah

Norman L. Hahn of Omahc,
Neb., president and chair-
man of the board of AGC
Industries, Inc., has been
named chairman of the 45-
member committee plan-
ning the 66th annual meet-
ing of the American Jewish
Committee, scheduled May
4-7 in New York. More than
1.000 persons are expected
to attend the four-day ses-
felt that I had a call" to serve
their needs.
The work of a chaplain in Viet-
nam is very ardous. A chaplain is
on the road three or four days a
week, travelling from unit to unit,
from "pit to pit," idbktog for Jew-
ish V"*W"*~S Jelling' with their
problems and bringing as much
solace and comfort as possible to
his people.
The chaplain is the link, the
father image between the Jewish
GI ami Ids parents at home. When
the chaplain comes, he never
comes empty-handed. It is not
only a prayer book and Bible
which he carries in his jeep or
chopper (helicopter), but also
comfort items, gifts from JWB,
and more important, a smile and
a handshake which tells the indi-
vidual man that someone cares.
The general and the chaplain
made it a great evening for the
Jewish boys in Vietnam. The men
are there for only one year, and
this is a single exi>erience. How-
ever, it is the hope of the chap-
lain and the general that the men
will recall this event with plea-
sure, and will institute "Break-
the-Fast" ceremonies in their own
homes when they return. After
all. this is what it is all about
the preparation of men to become
g(xxl citizens of the Jewish com-
munity and of the general com-
munity, when they return to home
and those they love.

been grossly misinformed.
The success was never re-
ported in New York, for reasons
of fashion- presumably, that
leave one a bit bewildered. But
there is far more than "a shred
of evidence," generated in New '
York City. It comes from the
unique serious experiment in
ghetto school improvement ever
attempted in this country. This
was called the More Effective
AT THE KXD of the 196^-67
school year, for example, the
18 full-ghetto schools in the
MES program underwent the
usual rearing tests. The rnd-
third graders bad every handi-
cap other black children have.
But in those tests they achieved
a reading-average bang on the
nose of the national average.
It does not sound like much.
But it was far, far more than
has ever been achieved by sim-
ple school desegregation. It also
meant that up through third
grade, at least, there was no
black educational retardation.
For want of local support, none-
theless, the MES experiment
has been all but dismantled since
1907. Yet the real criticism of
the President's new school mes-
sage is still the flabbiness of
the Nixon approach to ghetto
school improvement.

A 13th AND A 50th...
The 13th was the birthday and Bar Mitzvah
->. Mark Steven, son of Sam and Betty Finkelsteln
at Temple Beth El March 25. For the big day
Mark was joined by his sister Pattl, his maternal
:: and;>atvnts, Mr. and Mr*. Edward Rosensteln,
arid also Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Finkelsteln. Mr.
and Mr,. Lee Finkelsteln and Mr. and Mrs.
rxiuis Weiss, all of Baltimore. From Bowling
Greet: Ohio, came Mr. and Mrs. Louis Kal/.ner
and representing Washington, DC. were Mr.
and Ml*. Stanley Albert, Mr. and Mrs. Donald
Oerttet and Mrs. Samuel Welnsteln.
The reception and dinner that followed the
ceremonv later that evening could only bo de-
scribed as perfection itself. No doubt due to the
combined efforts of a capable staff and the
good taste and know-how of the lady and gentle-
man who hosted it, Sam and Betty.
Bountiful and exquisite floral bouquets of the
most delicate color and balance stood high above
the heads of the diners on vinyl see-through
pedestals. The band, candlellghting ceremony,
and a room full of happy relatives and friends
made the im)>ortant event one all will remember.
When it comes to wedding anniversaries, a
50th is not to be taken lightly. So, Judge and
Mrs. J. Jay Simons and Mr. and Mrs. Bcnj min
Post pulled out all the stops and invited 125
friends and relatives to a reception and dinnei at
Emerald HilLs Country Club in honor of the
golcien wedding anniversary of their parents Mr.
and Mrs. Arthur Simons. And, a handsome, and
proud twosome they were, surrounded by chil-
dren and grandchildren and a few nieces an>'
nephews who flew in from Massachusetts-way
for the gala event (not to mention the overflow
crowd of friends who joined in the gay festivities).
So. our very heartiest congratulations on two
very important milestones in a lifetime. The 13th
birthday and Bar Mitzvah of Mark Finkel-itcin.
and the 50th wedding anniversary of Arthur and
Bertha Simons.

It was a lovely luncheon of crepes, salad and
fresh fruit on a beautiful Florida day at the
lakeside home of Abbey (Mrs. Rubin) Klein. The
Hollywood Art Museum was the reason for the
get together and the newly formed advisory
group to the Museum took the opportunity to
exchange ideas on the various methods os assist-
ing this worthy cause of culture in our fair city.
Gert (Mrs. Herbert) Tulk was there to wel-
come the group along with hostess Abbey and
Marcia (Mrs. Stanley) Sliver. Members of the
new group are Nancy (Mrs. Norman) Atkin, Lee
(Mrs. Donald) Berman, Lorene (Mrs. Robert)
Butler, Pat (Mrs. William) Cox, Peg (Mrs. Ed-
ward) Foster, Babs (Mrs. Robert) Fuer, Anita
(Mrs. Stanley) Kernel, Mltrl (Mrs. Seymour)
Mann, Gay. (Mrs. John) Mc Donough, Estelle
(Mrs. Alan) Podis, Maxlne (Mrs. Harold) Sat-
chell and Addle (Mrs. Adrian) Walser.
The first venture for the new group will l>o
the planning of an early morning breakfast for
the businessmen of the community coupled with
the showing of a short but interested film. The
next meeting for the group will be two weeks
hence-, at which time all plans will be solidified
and further announcements will lie made.
Philip Michael Berman made his folks, Bob
and Sylvia, proud indeed. He's 13 and recently
celebrated his Bar Mitzvah at Temple Beth
Shalom Congrats are doubly in order for
Frieda and Sam La Salle celebrating 50 years
of wedded blis.; at a golden wedding anniversary
champagne brunch.
In spite of some less than enthusiastic re-
views "Nicholas and Alexandra" playing at a
Bay Harbor Lsland movie theatre drew quite a
crowd of viewers. A number of them making the
trek from Hollywood, and all on the same eve-
ning, were Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Schecter, Al and
Helen Krasne and Dr. and Mrs. Dave Blumsteln.
Wonder if they felt it was worth the trip?
Ah, but the one short trip to the Dlplemat
Hotel for the Burt Baeharach Show was .note
than worth the trip for all concerned. For the
music lovers there was the beautiful Bacha:ach
music, for all the gals there was handsome Burt
and, for all the gents the beautiful Angle Dick-
inson was very much on hand. Irv and Marge
Co an couldn't have picked a stronger attraction.
The car that started the small "personal car" trend, the
Thunderbird, has an all-new image for 1972. Available from
all "Big Teu" Ford dealers from Pompano to Perrine, the
Thunderbird's new size is reflected in the rear compartment,
where more than four inches of legroom have been added.
Offered with an impressive list of standard and optional
equipment, the Thunderbird continues to maintain classic
luxury in a size sought after by many.

The Rabbi's major concern is
our young people. "We must keep
our youth involved in something
distinctively Jewish." he says, "not

Rabbi Drazin believes we should
let our children do for themselves,
without adults doing for them. "If
we don't give them a chance to do
for themselves, they'll grow up ex-
pecting someone always to carry
the ball for them," he says.
Rabbi Drazin points proudly to
his Temple's youth program, which
includes a Young Judea group that
has won awards at every con-
clave its members have attended.
He enjoys his work with the Con-
firmation Class and claims the
teenagers are very interesting in
their Jewishness. "We do a lot of
communicating." he says.
Currently, the youngsters are
studying Judeo Christian co-
existence, and Rabbi Drazin claims
his entire class is more secure in
their Jewishness as a result of
their studies.
In the area of Jewish Education,
Rabbi Drazin feels very strongly
that children should be sent to
religious school to know why
they're Jewish -not merely to meet
a Bar Mitzvah requirement. "Jew-
ish education cannot succeed un-
til parents are ready for it to suc-
ceed," says the 3-year-old religi- ida> 1l|Klu at

education lies in day schools, not

from Roosevelt University in Chi-
cago; an MA. in Educational Ad-
ministration from Northwestern
University, and was ordained at
the Hebrew Theological College
in Chicago in 1959.
Rabbi Drazin accepted his first
pulpit in Mason City, Iowa in 1959.

Why are* sacrifice*) mentioned
In the prayer book in the coura*
at our dally. Sabbath and holi-
day prayers?
In the days of the old Temple,
prayers accompanied the sacri-
fices. Actually, the prayers ex-
pressed the motive of the sacri-
fies and gave the sacrifices mean-
ing and objective. The rabbis say
that our prayers of today still
have references to the ancient
sacrifices, even though they do
not exist any more. Indeed, the
traditional Jew looks forward to
their restoration in the Messianic
age. Rosensweig once said that
prayer today is a training ground
through which the Jew can
achieve the restoration of the an-
cient glory of the sacrificial ritual
of the Temple.
The aims of the sacrifices were
the same as the aim of prayer.
First, prayer and sacrifice show
an awareness of God on the part
of the worshipper. By offering
some possession man recognizes in
sacrifice that his possessions as a
whole really belong to God. By
offering the life of an animal in
sacrifice man acknowledges that
life itself belongs to God.
Thus man, in praying and in sac-
rifice, surrenders his right to his
jxKsessions and even to his life
unto the Almighty God. This is
why prayers mention sacrifices.
Furthermore, man in prayer and
sacrifice demonstrates his intense
desire to be close to the Almighty.
A feeling of closeness and friend-
ship is practically demonstrated by
the willingness to give something
up for one's beloved.
Sometimes an estrangement takes
place which creates a distance
between man and God. Making
up. which means closing the gap.
is affected by again demonstrating
one's closeness by sacrificing some-
thing even if necessary, one's
own life for his friend. God, who
has a right to expect our very
lives, either as a token of friend-
ship or as a surrender of the life
we forfeited through in, is merci-
ful and allows us to substitute
either a part of our possessions or
the life of an animal when sacri-
fices were practiced as a token of
our willingness to give up every-
thing, should it be necessary, to
display recognition of the sover-
eignty of the Lord of the Universe

Dancers Expelled
From Ballet Troupe
couple who had been soloists with
the Kirov Ballet in Leningrad,
were expelled from the troupe
after applying for exit visas to go
to Israel, Jewish sources in the
Soviet Union reported.
The sources said the dancers,
whose professional names are Va-
lery Anov and Galina Lagadina,
were denounced by their fellow
performers when they applied to
the Kirov collective for the char-
acter references required to obtain
exit visas.
They appeared before the col-
lective March 30. When they ar-
rived at the theater for rehearsals
April 1 they were not allowed in,
and were called "ungrateful and

An Arab Village Awaiting Discovery
e MALL THOUGH IT 18, Israel &tjl) has a number
** or charming places which are not on any q{ the,
ndard sightseeing trips. I am writing thi* fsouv,
the unknown village of Rama an
Arab township in the Lower Gali-
lee, a pleasant, interesting site
still waiting to be discovered.
Rama is a town of some 4.000
inhabitants, tucked away on a
ridge 1.CO0 feet above sea level,
off the Aere-Safed road. It has
electricity and running water, bu:
Modernity has not spoiled its
C iaan. The foot of the tourist has not yet trod
t.k ough its winding alleys.
The scattered shreds, ancient pillars and rrosa-
tei are unexplored. Even the archaeologist has not
v< i been here.
What gives Rama a character of its own and
> ts it apart from other Arab villages is the high
U vel of the education of its members. Almost all
it-, children attend school. There are two high
school*, with an enrollment of 630, one of which
;. -o attracts attendance from other Arab villages
miles around.
The economic basb of the village is agriculture:
olives, fruit, cattle. Indeed, the modern olive oil
press is an interesting sjght. However Rama has
another important "industry": dozens at its natives
have became" teachers hi A'ratf'sVhools throughout *
the Galilee -again a reflection of the high educa-
tional level of its people. I was interested to learn
from the owner of the local newsstand and book-
shop that a large number of Hebrew newspaper;
are read in Rama though the town has no Jews.
Almost everyone with whom I chatted in the streets
spoke good or adequate Hebrew.
One explanation is to be found in the composi-
tion of the population. Two thirds of the people are
Christians, almost one third Druzes, with only a
scattering of Moslems. I saw a number of Diium
youth proudly wearing the uniform of the Israel
defense forces.
How does one measure the degree of 20th cen-
tury civilization in a place like this? Rama cer-
tainly passes all educational criteria with flying
colors. I looked around. I found two banks, four
houses of worship, three barber shops. Most of the
Arabs wear modern dress.
There are 106 private automobiles in Rama. Al-
most every family has a washing machine, an elec-
tric refrigerator, gas or electric range, and a tele-
terial prosperity. i.

There is no movie house, I was told i uel iiLy.
"TJie shigle cmema jjacj been operated by a local
citizen, but when his family had a row with another
big family clan, the latter boycotted the place and
it closed down.
The people are clean, friendly, hospitable. The
strolling, curious stranger was invited indoors for
coffee or even lunch by almost everyone with whom
he chatted. I saw something here I have never seen
in any other Arab village, large or small, anywhere
in Israel: a large garbage collection truck rolling
through the alleys, and Arab women descending
from their homes with full buckets which they
emptied carefully into the van.
The air is crisp and clear here. The view is
beautiful; Haifa's Mt. Carmel, some 20 miles away
as the bird flics, is clearly visible and its lights
sparkle brightly at night.
Some day Rama will be discovered. Please, no
vision set. Surely these are evidence at least of ma-
factories; maybe a health resort or a hotel. I hope
the people will not be spoiled when the inundation

Solidarity D#y Near*
|s is <.i: ah hois for any of us to advise Presi-
dent Nixon what to say or do about the 2 or 3
pillion .lews in the Soviet Union when he under-
takes an exciting mission to Mos-
cow in May?
The State Department, after
spelling out the text of a recom-
mendation for a Congressional
Resolution on Soviet Jews a few
iveeks ago, went on to say it saw
no reason for the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee to advise the
President on what he should do
Well, that's at the summit of our government:
lud we'll leave it up to Foreign Relations Commit-
' Fullbright and presidential aides to unlock the
Ituntion. But meanwhile, as free and deeply con-
i-med citizens of the United States, aware of the
Dllble barreled hardships and opportunities now
puifronting Jews in the Soviet Union, we have the
p-'ht and privilege to speak up.
In large part, that process will unfold as prep-
arations go forward for "national Solidarity Day
lor Soviet Jews," April 30, followed by an historic
isscmbly in Washington on May 3. I these two events
k'inmnnd our closest attention) Jews of America,
Dined by others who now comprehend the agony
rod ecstasy of Russian Jewry at this exciting junc-
ture of history, will make the greatest concerted
Efforts of modern times to point up the drama of
Ihc situation and appeal for effective action.
This will be in full awareness that the Russian
pear has been doing strange things with the spigo.
Vat turns off and then turns on the flow of Jewish
emigration from Russia. There was a trickle in the
JWfiOs when Jews throughout the world united on
It his issue as they have on no other problem with
[the exception of backing for Israel against NasierV
[threat in 1967.
In 1971, about 1.000 Jews were permittd to
[leave Russia. The figure for 1972 jumped to 13.000
Jit is estimated that nearly 75,000 affidavits have
|been sent this year upon request to Jews in the
[soviet Union, and some close Russian watchers are
Fsanguine enough to believe that eventually as
I many as 300.000 Jews will depart Russia.
.-.' ....... t
doubt that many of the Reform rabbinate will change.
This statemen' is based ui>on our experience with three
leading American Reformists who were exposed to many
findings similar to Fein's.
Prof. Fein writes, "The past 15 years have seen an
attrition of support for liberal propositions, with no con-
commitant increase in supix>rt for specifically Jewish
positions." He interprets his statistics rather a "dissillu-
sior.ment" within the Jewish community rather than a
backlash. He does not clarify whether community means
that of Reform or the general community.
The generation gap appears (almost catastrophically
to an observant Jew) in the field of philanthrophy only
four par cent of Jteform youth agreed that it was essential
to give to Jewish causes if one is to be a "good Jew"
while the parents stood at 32';. On intermarriage. li'A
of adults "held it essential" not to marry out of the
faith while only 43% of the youth agreed. It is also re-
vealed that there are 695 temples affiliated with UAHC
with an aggregate membership of 224.311 and 162 tem-
ples have no rabbis.
We hark back to Alvin Reines, a leading theologian
at HUC, whose view is that "there is no Jewish tradition
only a continuum of ancient rather than essence." Jakob
Petuchowski, another leading theologian at HUC, wrote
in 1966 that the ranks of the Reform rabbinate each year
"are swelled by young rabbis with the sincerely
held conviction that Reform Judaism is a new religion."
He then quotes Reines "That new religion, called Reform
Judaism' has only one dogma, and that is the absolute
freedom to think and do what he likes."
Morrison David Bial in his Llberul Judaism ut Home
(UAHC. $2.50) writes that some Reform practices "have
been borrowed from cultures and religions that sur-
round the Jewish community." He is not refcrrin;; to
Pharisaic or other acculturation but those borrowed in
the past century and he is not referring to traditional
Jewish rites. Bial writes, "It is the atmosphere of the
home that determines the firmness of Jewish loyalty ..."
Fein's study shows the barrenness of Jewish ritual, prac-
tice and culture in the majority of Reform homes.
Amen: The DUr, <* Bbl Martta SU**I (Fawcett
Crest Books, $1.23) is a comi>endium of self-serving
statements and illustrative of what Fein found in the
"actual Reform Jaw." Siegel epitomizes himself when he
wrote anent Jews, "We're as Insecure as the blacks -
and twice as neurotic." It is difficult to find a book more
tasteless and as devoid of what is the essence of Judaism.
Another Reform rabbi Samuel M. Silver, in How to
Km joy Thin Moment (Cornerstone Library $1.95) has
complied sporific monenntcs and cliches reminiscent of
Kdgar Guest. Eample "So live decently, fearlessly.
Joyously, and don't forget that in the long run it is not
the years in your life but the life in your years." All

Between You and Me: By BORIS SMOLAR
A Personal History
QNB OK THE MOST interesting chapter < in
^^ Meyer Weisgal's new book, "Meyer Weisgal
... So Far." released recently by Random House,
is the one in which he tells how
he participated in the activities of
the group in New York which was
knovvn under the name "Materials
for Palestine." The "materials"
were ramshackle airplanes, ships,
surplus war good-;, machines and
spare parts, all intended for the
Jewish underground in Palestine
in preparation for the proclama-
tion of the Jewish state.
It was the year 1947. The United Nations was
discussing the partitioning of Palestine in a Jewish
and Arab state. The Jewish state was yet unborn,
but it already had its underground army, navy and
air force ready to come into the 0[>en after the
official announcement of the establishment of Is-
rael. It was for these aimed forces that a group
of 30 American Jews, silently and vigorously,
scoured the United States for old equipment thai
was shipped in pieces, and under camouflage, to
Palestine. The group also forwarded medical sup-
plies and hospital equipment openly.
Mr. Weisgal does not tell the whole story, but
he relates how he was instrumental in influencing
Herbert Bayard Swope. the former managing editpr
of Pulitzer's New York World, to intervene with
high Washington authorities for lifting the ban pn
the first two airplanes which the group succeeded
in securing, and for which they had voluntary pilots
ready to take off. TTv-se first two planes were to
be the nucleus of the Jewish air force; with them
rested the destiny of Jewish air power.
When he told Mr. Swope of the desperate situa-
tion, the latter, who has never been considered n
Jew, picked up the telephone and a brief conversa-
tion eniued. He spoke to somebody saying: "This
is Herbert. You remember when 1 was editor of
The World" and the Irish were lighting for their
freedom, and you asked me to do something for
you and I did? Now I am going to ask you to do
something for my people. I want you to give orders
for those two planes to leave this afternoon. That
is the only payment I want from you for my serv-
ices to the Irish Republic."
A few hours later the planes left.
Mr Weisgal also tells of a similar incident in
which he plaved an important role, but this time
it had to do with three ships. They had been pur-
chased and refitted in Philadelphia for carrying il-
legal immigrants from Europe to Palestine. Bui
under some kind of pressure they were not allowed
to move out of Philadelphia. With the helpful ad-
vice of $amuel Zemurray. president of the United
Fruit Company, Mr. Weisgal succeeded in arranging
for the ships to leave for Italy within four Jays.
One of these ships was the "Exodus."
This book Is full of revealing and interesting
episodes providing an inside view of important de-
velopments that took place in the Jewish world hotn
before anl after the establishment of Israel. It is
a personal history impressively related against the
background of the author's unusual experiences.
