Rise in Repressive Trends
Anti Semites in Rally
By NISSIM ELNECAVE
There is near-unanimous opin-
ion in Argentina that the new
President, Dr. Hector Campora,
64, will not embark on any major
policy without first obtaining the
approval of Gen. Juan Peron, the
"father" of Peronism.
Gen. Peron, 77, President of
Argentina between 1946 and
1955, returned in November after
living in exile in Madrid for 17
years. He later went back to
Madrid, where he was visited by
President Campora soon after his
election in March.

5,000 S. Broward Residents
Attend Tribute To Israel
NEW YORK (JTA) Jews who have "disengaged from the liberal struggle, who have turned to
the right and have wedded themselves to Nixon's America," thus casting their lot with "the most threaten-
ing option confronting America," are bringing danger to t hemselves as Jews and to their country. warne4
Rabbi David Polish, president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. This statement was made
by Rabbi Polish when he spoke at a series of regional meet ings of the CCAR, prior to recent development*
trends in America, but must stand
firm against such incursions on
U.S. liberty. "We sltall not weather
any coming storm by trying to sit
it out." he added. "If we do not try,
it will overwhelm us."
On a rain-free and starlit eve-
ning, Young Circle was filled to
overflowing as five thousand
South Broward residents paid
homage to Israel on its 25th
anniversary May 20.
Among the tribute-payers
were Dr. Norman Atkin, pres-
ident of the Jewish Welfare Fed-
eration: I. A. Durbin, chairman
of the Hollywood Israel-25 Com-
mittee; Dr. Sam Meline, program
chairman for the evenings
event; Mayor David Keating,
who accepted the Torch of Free-

ident Scott Snyder: and Phil

contest was organized by Mrs.

rector of Temple Beth Shalom,
and represented the work of
three area temples.
First-place winners were pre-
sented with trophies; runners-up
received gift certificates to the
Joy Rubin Art School.
Preschool winners were Tom
Kierman, Kenneth Jacobs and
Brian Gotkin of Beth Shalom.
In the age 6-8 category, Claire
Sultan and Laura Meyers (Sinai),
Susan Kaplan (Beth Shalom)

In his message, the head of this

Jews not to asquiesce in this

it "struggles for its soul." Con-

not abandon the struggle against

Rabbi Polish charged that the
many Jews who "assumed a
super-patriotic pose before the
election were not nearly as in-

but betrayed instead a profound
distrust in our society and its
capacity for change." On the

Energy Situation Needs Study
While doubts continue to be expressed that there is
really an oil crisis, the reality of domestic and Arab prop-
aganda cannot be ignored as part of the gloomy picture
presented in recent weeks.
The statement by a State Department official that the
United States would have to curtail its oil consumption in
the event of a new Middle East war, the threats by the oil-
rich Arab nations to bring this country into line with their
anti-Israel policies by cutting off the precious supplies,
may be viewed as only empty ones designed to black-
mail the administration. There is more than a suspicion
that our own oil companies are contributing their own pub-
licity fuel in the interests of higher profits and more con-
cessions in the tax field.
What seems to be needed is a serious, independent
study of the energy situation in the United States. The
American people must be given more facts than have
come to light- Gasoline rationing, the closing of service
stations because of lack of supplies and the daily head-
lines carry a greater threat to continued support of Israel
than statements from Arab leaders and State Department
Another Cycle Completed
Another cycle in the religious life of the Jew will be
completed next week with the observance of Shavuoth, the
third of the traditional agricultural festivals which began
with Succoth last fall. For local synagogues it marks the
end of the "season" which will be resumed with the High
Holy Days and the new year of 5734.
The later addition of a spiritual dimension has given
the holiday a larger and more modern significance and,
in a sense, a far greater one than its origin. The emphasis
today is on the giving of the Torch on Mt. Sinai and the
acceptance of the Jews of a moral code which has been
then guide and their sustenance through the ages.
While originally a Reform replacement for Bar Mitz-
vah, the ceremony of confirmation has become an integral
part of the E.'iavuoth observance for most synagogues
Just as Moses received the Torah on Mt. Sinai and passed
it on to succeeding generations of Jews, boys and gir!
completing their formal religious studies today accept it
for their generation as a time of commitment to study in
the tradition of the Jewish people as well as a renewed
search for Jewish identity.
Educators' Work Bearing Fruit
Those who despair of Jewish education in the United
States should be made aware of the fact that three Amer-
K-an students were the top winners in the international
Bible contest recently concluded in Israel.
While this may only prove that they received excel-
lent training m learning a special subject, there is enouqh
evidence that at the different degrees of education rang-
ing from the Sunday School to the all-day yeshiva -
young Jews are being produced who know who and
what they are and have a commitment to the Jewish faith
and peoplehood which would appear to be even more in-
tense than that of their parents, if not their grandparents.
As the school year comes to a close, it is well for the
community to take inventory of its assets as well as
liabilities. Many critics will find, on closer study, that those
assets are greater than current thought would have you
believe. The intensive work by such new bodies as Fed-
eration s Commission on Education and its Central Agency
for Jewish Education are beginning to bear fruit, from all
the evidence at hand. The continued cooperation of Fed-
eration leadership can make the turnaround from despair
a reality sooner than many had hoped.
WASHINGTON. DC. By
general agreement of his col-
leagues. Herman Talmadge of
Georgia is one of the ablest.
most national-minded men now
in the Senate. He is also an in-
fluential member of the main
committee investigating the
Watergate horror. Hence, some
remarks of his are now highly
"You can't tell how long this
thing is going to go on. any more
than you can tell how long it
will take to unroll a ball of
string." Sen Talmadge has said
about the Watergate investiga-
tion. "But one thing any dam-
fool can tell. It will be bad for
the countryin fact it can be
really dangerous for the coun-
try to go on much longer
without knowing the truth about
Sen. Talmadge has therefore
approached the chairman of the
Watergate investigating commit-
tee. Sen. Sam J. Ervin of North
Carolina, with a tentative pro-
posal that makes tremendous
good sense. The proposal is to
take immediate steps to get to
the bottom of President Nixon's
real degree of involvement in
the Watergate horror, while leav-
ing the roles of the President's
subordinates for later inquiry.
THIS WOl I.I) be relatively
simple to do. On the basis of
all the evidence to date, there
are only five men who can now
testify to the President's per-
sonal knowledge and complicity,
or clear him from all material
charges of knowledge and com-
plicity as the case may be.
These five are former Atty. Gen.
John Mitchell; the Republican
bagman. Maurice Stans, and the
three key White House staff
members, H. R. Haldeman. John
Ehrlichman and Charles Colson.
Daily we hear what the Presi-
dent was thought to have wanted
but always at second hand.
Former CIA Director Richard
Helms has testified that the once
all-powerful Haldeman told him
it was "the President's wish"
to use the CIA to block part of
the early investigation of Water-
gate. John J. Caulfield has tes-
tified that he "felt the Presi-
dent probably knew about it,"
when he offered executive clem-
ency to the people who made
the Watergate break-in.
No one so far has testified,
however, that "the President
told me" or "the President re-
quested" or "the President or-
dered." The chances are im-
mensely high, too. that no one
can so testify at least without
committing perjury except for
Mitchell, Stans, Haldeman, Ehr-
lichman and Colson.
What Sen. Talmadge therefore
has in mind is calling these five
men out of order, without fur-
ther delay, and without prejudice
to subsequent orderly investiga-
tion of their own actions. They
would be on the stand under
THIS TIME around, they
would be asked solely about the
President's role. In fact, they
would only need to be shown
the seven denials in the Presi-
dent's Watergate statement of
Tuesday (May 22). They could
then be asked bluntly:
"Are these statements by the
President true or false, to the
best of your knowledge and be-
lief?" If a single one of the five
said there was untruth in any
of the President's denials, that
would be the proper signal for

On the other hand, if all five
of these men supported the
truth of the presidential denials,
that would be the effective end
of the poisonous talk about the
President's own knowledge and
complicity in the worst of what

The darkest, ugliest aspect of
the Watergate horror would then
be over barring some enor-
mous surprise from one of the
obscure bottom-dwelling slogs
who seem to have infested the
White House until recently.

NEW YORK Richard Nixon is fighting for his political
life, harder than he has ever fought before. But will it avail him?
This is his time of troubles. He has been betrayed by friends.
He is beset by enemies, within his own party as well as among
the Democrats. He is beleaguered by the media: Never has so
intense a scrutiny been focused on every operation of an adminis-
tration, secret or public, as on this one. And he meets a continued
skepticism among the majority of those who have either felt
friendly or neutral about him in the past.
This at any rate is the image he would like to project. In
the midst of the Senate inquiry he has made a second major
effort to explain what happened. It helps, especially in recog-
nizing the coverup. and there are passages of contrition in it
which murt have been hard for Mr. Nixon's pride to utter. But
it still doesn't ring wholly true. It is hard to believe that every-
thing he did was done for reasons of national security, in order to
keep crucial political intelligence from being revealed. It is also
hard to believe that a tough, driving politician like Richard
Nixon didn't know about either the input or outgo of his cam-
When Mr. Nixon revealed so little in his first TV speech,
'here were desert stretches crying to be irrigated by further in-
formation His second statement adds considerable detail. But
now the trouble for Mr. Nixon is that every new revelation will
be matched against his statement, to see whether it confirms or
contradicts it. Which means a continuing crisis of credibiiitv.
ft tr ft
IS THIS FINALLY Mr. Nixon's last stand, or will there be
still another? I feel there is bound to be another, since new
contradictions and disbeliefs are bound to pile up and wil! need
to be dispelled. The danger is, of course, that this might zo on
indefinitely, ,n a chain-reaction sequence, until it finally forces
Mr. Nixon out of the presidency. Something like it forced Lyn-
don Johnson out of the political arena, compelling him to take
himself out of the running for another term.
Mr Nixon is, of course, aware of the Lyndon Johnson paral-
lel, as of the Andrew Johnson impeachment parallel. The two
historical Johnson cases plague his mind.
To prevent the ghost of Andrew Johnson from taunting
h.m. he has first to lay the ghost of Lyndon Johnson. He did it
once before, when an antiwar campaign in the media and on
the campuses was mounted against him. His answer was a
counteroffensive-the historic "Silent Majority" speech, one of
the effective presidential TV talks in recent history, shrewdly
gauged to the audience and to the moment. It caught the tide of
anti-anti-Nixon sentiment just as it crested, and it changed the
climate for Mr. Nixon's war and peace efforts for much of the
rest of his term.
One might guess that Mr. Nixon will do something like this
again, not in context of the war but of Watergate. He may again
wait for the right psychological moment, when people start to
feel that he is the underdog and a shabbily treated one Flag
decaLi are Parting to appear on car bumpers with a simple
' President Nixon" next to them. The movement may grow very
much as it did at the time of the "Silent Majoritv" speech
Right now the press is riding high, but there is an antilib-
eral potential in the attitudes toward the press which wil! crop
up if more people decide that the press is crowding the Presi-
dent too hard.
There is a gagsle of commentators, of various stripes, hint-
ing darkly of the counteroffensive to come, and saving (with
various shades of agreement or derision) that it will be linked
tn the climate engendered early in the 70s by intense anti-Nixon
movements on the left.

School will soon be out vacations arc being planned and the
hot days of summer are beginning. Our children are getting ready for
camp and our pediatricians are busy filling out medical forms and giv-
ing the necessary inoculations. The "snow birds" arc gone and now the
town belongs to "the local people." The campaign of the Jewish Wel-
fare Federation is nearly complete; it is in its "clean-up" process.
We are now approaching that time of year when (I was told be-
fore I accepted my position) things would be slower and there would
be time to relax. Those days are no more. With the growth of the
Jewish community of this area and with the involvement of more and
more people and a great diversity of organizations, there is no "slack
Just within the past two weeks a new American Jewish Congress
chapter was formed and a new Anti-Defamation League advisory com-
mittee was born. Program committees of all organizations are now
planning their 1973-74 activities, and our community calendar is reach-
ing the bursting point. The pressures in terms of new services for the
entire Jewish community are not only continuing unabated but increas-
ing significantly. We have already appointed our 1974 campaign chair-
man and are planning for the fall and winter.
There are no seasons anymore as we finish one project or one
lerm we immediately evaluate that and move on to the next project,
each time hoping that what follows will be more inspirational, more
succesful than what preceded it.
Some people are complaining that they are being "meetinged to
death." Of course, these are the involved people who are called upon
again and again because of their commitment, their knowledge and
It seems that one of the goals that we should attempt to strive for
in the coming year is the involvement of more people in meaningful
activities Broadening the base of leadership and involvement can do
much to insure a healthy, viable Jewish community.
I know it is very difficult for those in leadership roles to be called
upon for more and more meetings. Very often one member of a fam-
ily is involved and not the other, and there are numerous complaints
about the over-involvement of the spouse. I appreciate and sympa-
thize with the marnage partner; yet, at the same time, in order to pro-
vide the programs which will insure the future of Jewish life in
America, the involved have a job to do.
So 1 ask each spouse please to understand and forgive, and to
encourage the husband or wife to continue the work. I can. of course,
suggest that the spouse get involved as well in self defense. One of
the thing's we are now thinking of having is more activities for couples
And so as the doldrums of summer approach do not be lulled
Into a feeling of inactivity and security. There is much to do although
the pressures and emphasis may be different than "in season."
As 1 see it involvement is what it is all about.

90 Minutes With
'Operation Joshua' to Begin
4th Year Of Summer Tours
His words flow in unhesitating
liquidity; there are no **uhs'' or
"you know what I mean's" or
"right?s" as his intensity mounts
and his total recall brings forth
^Sates from antiquity to this
decade. His name is Alvin Hess

Twas not always thus. The Hess .
years at CCNY and NYU were
what he terms "universalist" and |
he confesses to no religious or
ethnic identification at that time.
But in the days immediately
preceding World War II, an en-
counter with a girl named Gloria
De Duke, a girl who kept asking
him what was going to happen to
European Jews if there were no
place for them to go, awakened an
empathy that has grown to an
Today Alvin Hess is a man
Steeped in Jewish tradition, in
Jewish geopolitics, Jewish folk-
lore, Jewish literature. His erudi-
tion is awesome. The facts and
figures come in such a torrent
that assimilation is difficult.
He quotes Brandeis, Ben-Gurion.
Moses Hess (hero No. 1), Jabot in
sky (hero No. 2), Ben Hecht,
Spinoza, Stephen Wise. He de-
clares that "every Jewish home
Should subscribe to 'Commentary',
io 'Israel', to the 'National Jewish
Monthly' if it wants to raise its
children "vith Jewish knowledge.''
He believes that "the (religious)
education of our kids should be
from 15 to 22, not from 5 to 12."
He says, "You cannot be a Jew
without being committed to some
form of Jewry and to some temple.
"Have you ever heard of a
United Atheist Appeal?" he asks.
He goes on: "Contributions (to
campaigns) are meaningless with-
out commitment to Jewry. Gefilte
fish on Friday night is not
On Zionism he quotes Brandeis:
"To become a better American
one must be a better Jew: to be a
better Jew one must be a Zionist."
Then he adds that "there is a great
schim in Zionism between Ben
Gurion's Laborites and the cul-
tural clique of Ahnd Ha'am
(hero No. 3). Basically, however,
there is no difference between a
Jew and a Zionist."
Characterizing himself as a
"militant Zionist but a pacifist in
most other respects," Alvin Hess
vattributes his zea: to ne question-
ing girl who became his wife. He
calls Gloria "the most compas-
sionate, the most un-envious, un-
jealous woman who ever lived. She
i* totally incapable of feeling
malice towards anyone or any-
This gentle lady had her im-
passioned moments, however. She
was executive secretary in the re-
visionist NZOA, and met at least
six times with David Ben-Gurion.
Her influence on Alvin was in-
calculable. He was later to form
three chapters of the Palestine
Resistance Committee and to incur
the wrath of various factions of
Judaic political enterprise from
whom he earned such epithets as
"Fascist" and "black-shirt."
These words seem paradoxical;
Alvin Hess frequently invokes a
favorite word which describes his
concern for and empathy with the
suffgerings of his fellow human,
that word is "peoplehoodness" and
It breaks through the arbitrary
barriers set up by those who would
constrict "humanity" to one faith
or one ethic.
If one had to place Alvin in a
spectrum from liberal to conserva-
tive, he would be at the former
end. Not a "status quo" man. he
wants to see outmoded dogma
relevated eo a closet of tradition
with the door opened only for
glimpses of history.
As a board member of liberal-
reform Temple Solel, he was in-
-trumental in the formation of a
College Youth Group that meets
fc.- dialogues whenever there are
enough young people in town at
he same time, usually about four
time a year.
He terms these get-togethers
"blazing." The kids say they are
not the ones to be reached it's
their parents. They accuse the
older generation of hypocrisy, of
being 'check-book Jews.' They
question the rabbi's motivations,
they question our motivations, and
in general they shake up all those
nice, comfortable philosophies we
all thought we could grow old
with." He hopes to have one more
meeting before fall which will
center on pre-marital relation-
The Hesses are grandparents of
five, one of whom is the "only
blue-eyed, blond-headed Chinese
in the country."
Alvin "retired" in 1967, a con-
dition that, according to Gloria,
lasted all of three months. "Well,"
he says, "you can play just so
much golf, so much bridge, and
then you start asking yourself why
you're wasting all this time."
The JWF-UJA campaign pre-
sented the challenge he needed.
Between Alvin Hess and his co-
chairman Nathan Pritcher, the
Hillcrest complex over which they
presided increased its contribution
from $20,000 to $115,000 in two
years, which is pretty big potatoes
in any man's language.
And concurrently he went back
into the building business (his
former New York company sup-
plied most of the kitchen, bath and
laundry equipment for an area
bounded by the Hudseon, 96th St.,
the East River and 50th St.).
Now the phone rings from 7:30
in the morning till midnight, and
i when a suggestion was made to
take the phone off the hook, it was
| greeted with merry peals of
I laughter from Gloria Hess. She
; knows that a ringing telephone is
a joyous sound to her husband.
These two blythe spirits are giv-
: ing our community an infusion of
! adrenalin, and they are proving
that grand parenthood is not synon-
: ymous with atrophy. All they need
! is a 48-hour day to hurdle the
barriers of complacency life keeps
1 setting up.

"Operation Joshua", a unique
summer program in Israel run by
and for college students, will
begin its fourth year on July 15,
according to Irving Bernstein,
United Jewish Appeal executive
The program is designed as an
inexpensive and yet informative
way in which a student not travel-
ing with an organized tour can
get to know Israel in depth.
A special project of the United
Jewish Appeal's University Pro-
grams, the Operation Joshua tours
take college students to kibbutzim
along the Beit Shean Valley, to im-
migrant absorption centers, devel-
opment towns, and other areas
indicative of Israeli life today.
Outlining the basis for the
Operation Joshua program, Mr.
Bernstein called the tours "a
logical outgrowth of our Univer-
sity Programs' constant process of
education, organization and action.
Our main goal is to enable Jewish
students to gain a basic knowledge
of the conditions in Israel and of
world Jewry, with the long-range
objective of helping to develop
future leaders for the American
Participants will meet nnd speak
with Israelis from all walks of life
kibbutzniks, government offi-
cials and newly-arrived immi-
grants. One-day trips are run every
Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday
from July 15 to Aug. 23, and
originate from both Tel Aviv and
Jerusalem. For just a little more
than three dollars, a student can
join a day's tour, which includes
transportation, guides .and lunch.
Operation Joshua is open to any

I am fortunate in having come across my desk the publica-
tions of many Jewish organizations and the bulletins of all area
temples. In two recent editions of the temple periodicals there
appeared letters from the respective rabbis which are too evoca-
tive to remain unshared by other than their congregations.
Rabbi Robert Frazin of Temple SoleL, in an essay to his
congregants, speaks of the atrocities of the holocaust and the
callousness of nations worldwide. He ends his composition as
"My friends, three years ago the Central Conference of
American Rabbis met in convention in Jerusalem, and during
that convention we visited the Yad Vashem, the memorial to
the six million martyrs and heroes of our people. I recall this
night ascending the mount of remembrance, walking through
the garden of the righteous where trees are planted in memory of
our loved ones. And I recall entering a darkened room, the me-
morial shrine, and on the floor of that room were inscribed
names of the camps, Auschwitz, Dachau, Buchenwald, Bergen-
Belsen and others.
"And in the center of the floor there glowed an eternal
flame. And I listened.
"I listened as one of my colleagues spoke words of sorrow
and words of hope. I listened as a cantor chanted the El Malay
Rachamin. And then each of us. liberal-reform rabbis from all
over the world, recited the Kaddish. And the tears we shed served
as a tender tribute to our beloved dead.
'But they are net dead who live in hearts they leave behind.
"And they will, they will. For we shall never forget.
And in an apparently jocular vein, but conveying neverthe-
less a message of depth, Rabbi Ralph Kingsley of North Dade's
Temple Sinai tells his congregants on the eve of Mother's Day:
". I've got to make a confession to you. I could live very
well and happily without it. I feel the same way about Father's
Day ... I am tired of all the year-round occasions which pres-
sure me to run out to buy cards and gifts on demand, so to speak.
" 'What shall I get you for Mother's Day dar?' or 'What
would you like for Father's Day?' Isn't it silly? If you have to
ask. there's something wrong. And if you have to search around
for something that he or she doesn't have, and end up buying
something that he or she doesn't really need, just SO you've
fulfilled your obligation, well, there's something wrong with
that too. In fact, it smacks almost of the immoral conspicuous
consumption and all that.
"Now those of you in retail and those of you in greeting
card sales (my father included), please forgive me. I know you
rely heavily on these special occasions ... I write these words
knowing fuH well that they will make no dent in your business
anyway, since all of us are far too regimented and disciplined
by the American system to turn away from the pattern that has
been set for us. But every now and then I have a need to give
vent to pet peeves (I also can't stand Halloween).
"Above all, I suppose my Jewish self reminds me that those
'spechrt days' are all so superfluous for those of us who take
Judaism seriously. We have a mother's/father's (and children's)
day every week. Perhaps you've heard of it. It's called Shabbat.
It's really great. Filled with love and family feelings. But
dont let it get around. Somebody will figure it's a good time
for presents and cards."

Peron Courts Major Arab Oil Producers
Continued from Page 1-
that Gen. Peron has assigned
to himself the main responsi-
bilities for Argentina's future
economic policy. Observers be-
lieve that the Argentine econ-
omy will be oriented towards
greater trade with the Common
Market and that hostility to-
wards so-called American im-
perialism will be intensified.
But the main point of the new
economic set-up, as these ob-
servers see it, is Gen. Peron's
active contacts with the Arab
countries. As soon as the results
of the Argentine Presidential
election were known, the Libyan
and Syrian Ambassadors in Spain
visited Gen. Peron in his luxu-
rious Madrid home.
Then, on April 6. he met the
Saudi Arabian, Kuwaiti, Leba-
nese, Lobyan, Syrian, Algerian,
Tunisian and Iraqi Ambassadors
The representative or the Arab
League in Spain was also present
at the meeting.
The weli-iniormea Argentine
daily newspaper, La Opinion, has
reported that Gen. Peron aims at
increasing Argentina's oil output
which is approaching some 90
per cent of her consumption,
with a view to an association with
the Arab-dominated Organisation
of Oil Exporting Countries.
Gen. Peron is also reported to
be seeking large investments
from rich Arab countries to ex-
pand Argentina's industry and oil
Such developments in the Ar-
gentine economy, linking it with
Arab interests, would seriously
worry Argentina's 475,000 to

What the Arab League and a
number of Arab Embassies have
not been able to achieve in ten
years of campaigning in Argen-
tina, could be accomplished
easily if large-scale economic in-
terests were to be put at stake.
Dr. Sion Cohen Imach, the
president of Daia, the represen-
tative Jewish organization in
Argentina, complained of anti-
Semitic outbursts by some Peron-
ista quarters when he met Gen.
Peron secretly in Madrid last
Gen. Peron replied that this
view of some Peronista sup-
porters could not commit the
whole movement. However, he
declined to issue a public state-
ment on these lines.
Gen. Peron was also asked
for his own opinion in the
matter as the "father" of
Prronism. To this he replied
that an official declaration
would appear soon in the party
organ, Las Bases, published in
Alter a lapse of several
months, no such statement has
appeared and the general feeling
here is that none will now be
issued in the light of Gen. Peron's
growing interest in the Arab
world, which could be a pivot in
Argentine economic planning.
Later Gen. Peron, was invited
by the Arab ambassadors, includ-
ing the Egyptian envoy, to visit
their respective countries "in
order to underline the friendship
of the Arab world with Argen-
Gen. Peron accepted the invita-
tion and said that he would tour

himself in speech and song.
Some rabbis note the fact that
the words "Hashevi-i" (the sev-
enth) and "Shevach B'peh (praise

numerical equivalent in Hebrew
letters. This tells them that the
seventh day (i.e., the Sabbath) is
a day on which to praise the Lord

Why is it a tradition in many
synagogues to have the third
meal of the Sabbath on Saturday
in the synagogue together with
all the other worshippers, in-

There is a practical and a
theoretical reason for this custom.
Practically speaking, it was rather
inconvenient to have everyone
assemble for the afternoon Min-
chah service, then disperse and
go home, then reassemble for the
evening service of Ma'ariv. Thus,
the third meal which takes place
in the afternoon, between the
prayers of Mincha and Ma'ariv is
consumed in the synagogue.
On the theoretical side, there
are those who claim that it is
especially meritorious to eat the
third meal in a public quotum I
', (i.e. a Minyan). One of the reasons
given for this is that the third |
meal represents the eschatalogical
dimension of the Sabbath pointing

Israel," Rabbi Polish continued.
He said that those Jews who
their concern for Israel with
their own economic interest dur-
ing the election campaign "were
not lying." They saw both issues
as closely interlinked, "a right-
turning for Israel, protected by
a rightwing America."
These people were as concerned
for the welfare of Jews as their
Jewish opponents, he conceded.
But so were the "rabbis who knew
that it is good for us and good for' and would not tell their people
the truth about the extermination
plans of the Nazis."
Rabbi Polish went on to ex-
amine the thesis that Nixon's Amer-
ica is good for the Jews. "We are
more^Brosperaus than .ftver.ibefore
in Jewish history," he said, and
"we have felt more secure than
ever." are the arguments given.
However, "American prosperity is
being acquired at the expense of
an accelerating social and political
dislocation which is resulting in-
creasingly in a widening gap be-

Prosperous Jewish lawyer as Southerner
THE COVENANT, by Paige
Mitchell (Atheneum, $7.95)
is not unusual in general plot I
line and setting. A prosperous '
Jewish lawyer in a Mississippi
town had always thought of him-
self as a son of the South. His |
grandfather and father provid
ed the psychological and socio-
logical climate and tradition toward that end.
This identification far outweighed that of his
Americanism or Judaism, but the degree of his
loyalty to both these aspects of his life was
tested. On the one hand, civil liberties influences
placed him in the position of having to defend a
man unjustly accused of homosexuality because
of his liberal attitude toward Negroes in the
On the other hand, Ku Klux Klaa activities
included bombing the rabbi's home and the tem-
ple. This forces him into a painful reevaluation
of his identity and his association with his non-
Jewish law partner.
This is a readable and well-written book, but
one wishes that the story had a more original
It is acknowledged that first novels are
autobiographical. THE LINE OF DAVID, by Ken
Hurwitz (W. W. Norton, $6.95), is not the auth-
or's first book, but it has all the hall-marks of
the collegiate attempt to be blase and to shock
the reader in this case by understatement. We
wonder if the book would have been published
if the protagonist had not been a Jew, the fe-
male interest an Israeli, and part of the scene
set in Israel.

Danville, a textile and tobacco
marketing center of 48,000, is
noted for being the site of the
last meeting of Jefferson Davis'
Cabinet after the Confederacy
had lost Richmond. It now has
60 Jewish families and Orthodox
and Reform congregations. The
major's grandfather, Rabbi David
Kushner. was the Orthodox rabbi
there for many years before his
death in 1964.
Rabbi Kushner's Orthodoxy re-
mains strong in the major's
father, Dr. Robert Kushner, a
dentist, who was a captain in the
Army Air Force in World War
II. When asked whether anything
special would take place at "the
temple," Dr. Kushner replied: "I
don't go to a temple. When I go,
I go to a shul."
Maj. Kushner was the only
American captured prior to 1968
who survived the prison camp in
Quangrom, South Vietnam. "The
only one. All the rest are dead,"
he told a news conference before
he came home.
Ten of the 27 Americans held

lands died in the arms of this

was trained for aviation services

Americans perished, he said, be-
cause the Vietcong denied them
food and medicine.

Did Gen. Dayan Make AH on Angry?
UfHII.F Deputy Premier Yigal Allon was busy
outlining his Allon Plan for the first time
publicly last month, reporters accompanying him
on a one-day press tour through the Jordan Val-
ley were trying to figure out the most intriguing
question: Why now? One theory went that the
election was coming up in six months, and Allon
simply wanted to remind his colleagues of his
thoughts on the burning political question of the
day, the fate of the territories.
Another theory had it that Allon was an-
gered by Defense Minister Moshe Dayan's appeal
for Jewish settlement anywhere in the territories,
an appeal that is at variance with the Deputy
Premier's view that major Arab population cen-
ters should be returned to Jordan, with the im-
plication that Jews would not settle in those
centers after a peace settlement
Chief of Staff David Elazar, talking to the
Foreign Press Association at a Tel Aviv lunch-
eon, replied in the affirmative as to whether the
Israel defense forces felt it was subject to
"moral limits* iosra" in carrying oat suck sets aa
the Beirut raid. Elazar, speaking slowly and de-
liberately, noted that the Israeli raiders could
have done much more damage during the attack,
but felt that civilian buildings near the terrorist
headquarters might have been damaged.
Learning Hebrew has become one of the fa-
vorite pastime of Gaza Strip schoolchildren. So
much so, that a teacher crisis of sorts has de-
veloped there. Last year, 3,000 youngsters were
learning Hebrew, while this year, the figure has
more than tripled to 10,000. But, the Israeli
teaching colleges and other schools are not turn-
ing out enough qualified teachers who want to
teach in the Gaza Strip.
During the press tour of settlements in the
Jordan Valley, one fellow kept popping up, say-
ing little, but nonetheless present at all stops.
He was Haim Topol, the Israeli movie actor,
famed for his role as Tevya the milkman in
"Fiddler on the Roof." A friend of Yigal Allon,
who led the tour, Topol was dressed in an army
jacket and open shirt, looking very much like
any other ordinary military man. But he was
recognised at one atop by some excited young,

Winds of Change Appear to Blow
Through Ancient Church Doctrine
1AKIS Every year on Easter eve, 'the
good people" of Narbonne in Southern
"ranee gather to see the Jews crucify Christ.
In a ritual which has not changed since
he darkest days of the Middle Ages, the pro.
ession wends through the city's tortuous
treets, with Roman soldiers escorting Jesus
vith a crown of thorns on his head and heavy
wooaen cross on his shoulder, the Roman governor wearing a
white flowing toga, and dozens of scornful and sneering "Jews"
calling for the Christian messiah's death.
Practically all European countries have known this yearlv
ritual play. The one at Oberammergau in Barvaria still draws
tens of thousands of tourists and visitors, while at Sevillia in
Spain the masses watch Christ's disciples point an accusing and
threatening finger at the Jews as Jesus expires on the cross.
For hundreds of years, the Catholic church has burned
flogged, or simply persecuted the Jews, who every "Good Fri-
day" and right up to 1965, were accused of "deicide" and termed
During the last week in April the French Catholic bishops
suddenly called an end to this. In a document which goes much
further than anything attempted before, they termed anti-Semi-
tism a "sin," described Judaism as "a guiding light" and recog-
nized that the Jews "have the right and the means to a political
existence among nations of the world."
The Catholic church's misgivings of its treatment of the
Jews is nothing new. Back in 1272, Pope Gregorius X issued an
encyclical forbidding Christians from "hitting Jews with sticks
or stones during their holidays or opening graves in which their
dead are buried.'"
The real change came under the reign of John XXIII who
during the Catholic conclave of 1964-65, Vatican II, created i
special committee of Catholic bishops and cardinals to formulate
a new Catholic policy towards the Jews. German Cardinal Augus-
tinus Bea was given the responsibility of drawing up a new Cath-
olic "fundamental attitude" towards the Jews. The new dogma,
officially approved by the hundreds of cardinals and bishops who
attended the conclave, said that "entire humanity" and not only
the Jews were responsible for Christ's death.
