Sapir To Meet With
UJA Leaders June 28
NEW YORKPinhas Sapir, Is-
rael's Minister of Finance, will
meet with Cabinet Members of the
United Jewish Appeal June 28 in
New York. UJA general chairman
Paul Zuckennan has announced.
Mr. Sapir will discuss the impact
of the increased immigration of
Jews from the Soviet Union to Is-
rael. Following his presentation,
the assembled leaders will discuss
the immediate need for a sub-
stantial flow of cash to support
UJA's broad program of humani-
tarian services in Israel.
The event is to be highlighted
by the presentation to the UJA
of checks by the leaders, represent-
ing the latest cash receipts from
their communities.
Gerald S. Colburn, UJA national
cash chairman who will preside at
the meeting, noted that the UJA
is currently conducting a nation-
wide cash mobilization drive. "Any
interruption in the cash flow," he
said, "results in tragedy. It means
the cutback of vitally essential
humanitarian programs in behalf
of new immigrants to Israel, and
troubled and oppressed Jews
around the world. Thus, any lack
of cash is inevitably reflected in
human suffering."
Mr. Sapir has been a leading
statesman since the establishment
of Israel. He entered the Cabinet
of Israel in November, 1955, as
Minister of Commerce and Indus-
try, after serving as Director-Gen-
eral of the Treasury for two years.
In June. 1963, he assumed the
post of Minister of Finance, which
became vacant with Levi Eshkol's
appointment as Prime Minister.
Prior to his being appointed as
Minister of Finance, Mr. Sapir was
Minister without Portfolio in the
Government of Israel and Secre-
tary General of the Israel Labor
Party, two positions he assumed in
Malta Plays Special Role
In Hunt for Mideast Peace
Jewi.-h Chronicle Feature Syndicate
VALETTA To understand
better the meaning of Maltese
Premier Don Mintoff's visits to
western capitals and to Cairo and
Tripoli, one has to examine the
aims and policies of the Malta
Labor Party in government.
In the past two years, the
Labor Government has aimed at
striking a new path in foreign
policy without NATO connections,
but keeping its European links
and at the same time developing
healthy relations not only with
neighbouring North African
countries, but also with Commun-
ist block nations and the new
world power of China.
A strengthening of Malta's
cordial relations with Libya,
previously her best trade cus-
tomer, occurred at the height
of the prolonged crisis with
Britain ever the revision of the
defense and financial agree-
ment, a crisis which was solv-
ed only thanks to the interven-
tion of Italy and other NATO
countries during a period when
Malta was practically alone.
Since that time Libya has be-
come one of Malta's closest

Brandt Lays Wreath,
Recites 103rd Psalm
cellor Willy Brandt of West Ger-
many laid a wreath at the tomb
of sixmillion Jews slain by the
Nazis and then solemnly recited
in German, the 103rd Psalm. Yad
Vashem the memorial to the Jew-
ish martyrs of the holocaust, was
the first stop for the German lead-
er who landed at Lod Airport only
a short time earlier last week to
begin his four-day visit to Israel.
He arrived at Yad Vashem in a
black limousine flying the Israeli
and German flags.
The building and its approach
road winding through the Jeru-
salem Forest was lined with se.
curity men. Observers said the
security was tighter than for any
other world leader who has visited
Jerusalem in the past.
Police checkpoints were set up
every few yards where officials
examined the credentials of jour-
nalists and others accompanying
the official party. Extremely tight
security was also in effect at the
airport when Brandt arrived.
The Chancellor entered the
Memorial Hall the floor of which
is covered with plaques bearing
the names of Nazi concentration
camps. He stood before the huge
memorial candle with folded
arms and listened to the Israel
Broadcasting Chorus singing,
"Out of the Depths I have Cried
Unto Thee. O Lord."
Brandt was flanked on his right
by Yitzhak Arad, general manager
of Yad Vashem and on his left by
Knesset member Gideon Hausner,
the Israeli State Prosecutor at the
time of the Eichmann trial. Two
youths handed the Chancellor a
wreath. He walked to the tomb of
the martyrs and bent over to place
the flowers.
Then, unexpectedly Brandt
walked to a microphone and re-
cited the Psalm: "He hath not dealt
with us after our sins, nor requited
us according to our iniquities. As
for man his days are as grass, as
a flower of the field so he flour-
isheth. For the wind passeth over
it. and it is gone; and the place
thereof knoweth it no more."
Arab delegates participating in the
Security Council's Middle East de-
bate appeared this week to be aim-
ing for a new resolution or an ex-
pansion of resolution 242 that
would emphasize the right of the
Palestinians to self-determination
in any solution of the Middle East
This strategy became evident in
the opening speech last week of
the Egyptian foreign minister, Mo-
hammed H. El-Zayyat, and was
continued at sessions here by the
representative of Kuwait, Abdalla
Yaccoub Bishara, and the Algerian
foreign minister, Abdel Aziz Bouti-
It was El-Zayyat last Thursday
who introduced the concept of
"secure and recognized borders"
for the Palestinians and implied

Brandt Escapes Air
Accident on Masada
den gust of wind blew an Israel
Air Force helicopter carrying
Chancellor Willy Brandt and his
entourage to the edge of a 1,200-
foot cliff Monday. The West Ger-
man leader, who was preparing to
leave the chopper, was sent sprawl-
ing inside but was not hurt.
Israel's ambassador to Bonn,
Eflyashiv Ben-Horin, was knocked
to the ground, and Paul Frank, of
the West German Foreign Minis-
try, fell inside the air craft. Both
were treated for minor injuries.
The mishap occurred as the
helicopter, a French-made Super
Frelon, landed on the southern
end of the Masada plateau over-
looking the Dead Sea. Prof. Yigal
Yadin, the Hebrew University
archaeologist, was waiting to take
Brandt and his party on a tour
of Masada, site of the fortress
where Jewish zealots held out
against the Roman legions in 73
The helicopter landed in a cloud
of dust and was caught by the wind
as Yadin approached it to greet
Chancellor Brandt who was poised
at the door. It was swept back to
within 10 feet of the cliff edge and
came to rest against a pile of rock.
LONDON(JTA)A new se-
ries of blackmailing letters were
sent in the first week of June from
London to the homes or offices of
12 distinguished businessmen and
industrialists here, Jews and non-
Jews, threatening them with dire
consequences unless they send a
check to the Palestine Peoples'
Fighting Fund.
This is the second series of
such letters. A number of the let-
ters were sent May 26. Scotland
Yard is conducting an intensive
investigation. It refuses to reveal
the names of the addressees but it
has become known here that one
of them is the manager of the Dun-
lop Tire Co., and another a former
chairman of the Truman Brewery
who died four years ago.
The b 1 a c k m a i 1 e r s ask for
checks to be sent to a numbered
Swiss bank account. The com-
mon link for the letters, nine of
which are in special Scotland
Yard branch hands, was that all
the companies except Truman's'
have interests in the Middle
East or deal with Israel.
Truman's said that it was pure-
ly a Southeast England concern
and was mystified as to why it
should have been singled out. Chief
Superintendent Roy Habersham,
head of Scotland Yards bomb
squad, is leading the investigation.
Special branch officers were
brought in to try to track down
the source of the letters, but the
inquiries are said to be progress-
ing slowly. It is understood that
the Swiss bank has denied having
an account with the number men-
tioned in the letters.
Arab sources here said that they

that the only valid borders fo

tion. Itlshara claimed that th
root of the Middle East t raged
was "denial of the rights of th
Palestinians in their homeland.'
He claimed that peace wou
come to the region only when
rael abandoned its policy of acqu^
ing territory by force. But he it
plied that the rights of Palestinian
were more important than the te
ritorial dispute.
He quoted former premier Dav
Ben-Gurion, Premier Golda Me
and Israeli Defense Minist
Moshe Dayan to "prove" that Isra
is a state that negates the right
statehood in Palestine for peopl
other than Jews.
The Algerian foreign ministl
denounced Israel as a "colonn
ist, imperialist" country. He
sisted that the main problem
the Middle East is the dispossi
sion of the Palestinian people fro
their homeland.

Tragedy Had Little Effect
Little publicity has been given to the report of the
International Civil Aviation Organization on the Libyan
airline disaster that took place over Israeli territory last
February. In effect, it bore out the explanation of the Israeli
government at the time which many, including Jews in
Israel and throughout the world, challenged for its veracity.
What is striking about the report is the ineptitude and
inefficiency displayed by the Egyptian traffic controllers
at the Cairo Airport and the arrogance of the Libyan pilot
who, even when he became aware of the situation, as
shown by the report, willingly risked the lives of his inno-
cent passengers.
The tragedy and it was that without a doubt was
another consequence of the continuing Middle East war
but seems to have had little effect on the attitude of the
Arab nations toward negotiations which might lead to
peace. That the report exonerates Israel to such an extent,
as a London newspaper points out. that many countries
and organizations which criticized Israel harshly should
apologize, is a minor consequence in the larger need for
moves toward peace.
Seminary Leaders Could Help
B'nai B'rith plans to bring together in a national con-
ference next November representatives of some 450 small
communities in which Jews live and where the lack of
adequate religious education and observance threatens
their survival as Jews.
Notably missing from the list of those to be invited.
according to the press release, are the leaders of the rab-
binical seminaries in this country who mighi, if willing,
provide part of the answer to an important **wish problem.
That they have not been willing maybe because thev
have not really been challenged to meet this on their
own should not end the matter there.
It has been suggested before, particularly during the
days of the chaplaincy draft, that every graduate of a
seminary be required to spend a year or two in these small
communities before moving on to bigger things such as
assistants in large congregations, Hillel directors, yeshiva
teachers. The kind of salary expected by the young
American rabbi could, with little difficulty, be made up in
a variety of ways if the small communities themselves
were unable to meet it.
It is to the credit of the B'nai B'rift XhM it has under-
taken the project, but it would be orilf senjkehing the sur-
face if it did not involve those whose potential for help is
Positive Response Urged
The problems of the American dollar abroad are
affecting the nature of the help provided by the Combined
Jewish Appeal Israel Emergency Fund and one of the
ways to meet that problem is to turn the 1973 pledges into
immediate cash.
This month is particularly critical and local leaders
are intensifying their campaign to bring cash into the
coffers. With immigration in the first four months of the
year running at an all-time high in Israel, the demands
have obviously been greater than ever before. Inflation
here at home also has caused additional problems for the
many agencies and institutions supported by the CJA.
Every pledge paid up now represents a savings ir
the future. We urge a positive response to the appeal foi

you learn about it. the more
Dr. Henry Kissinger's recent
Russian trip seems to have a
currently important ""message.
The message is that key foreign
leaders like the Soviet general
secretary. Leonid Brezhnev, have
concluded that President Nixon
is going to survive the Water-
gate horror. Hence they still see
the President as the man to do
business with, come hell or high
As Dr. Kissinger himself has
often emphasized in the past,
any honor paid to him as the
President's emissary is obviously
an honor intended for the Pres-
ident. Furthermore, the Soviets
I have never distinguished any
other Western leader, at any
rate since President Franklin D.
1 Roosevelt's day. as President
Nixon has now been indirectly
distinguished through Kissinger.
In these Byzantine matters,
there are always two tests to
apply to any visitor's reception
' in the Soviet Union. The first
; test is the amount of time per-
sonally given to the visitor by
| the current Soviet boss. The sec-
i ond test is the degree of in-
timacy in which the visitor is
I received.
On the basis of the first test,
the Kissinger visit was extreme-
ly notable. Despite all the re-
sponsibilities his power entails,
Leonid Brezhnev gave the better
part of four entire days to the
man from the White House.
Since Winston Churchill in
wartime, no foreign leader visit-
ing the United States has ever
had anything like this amount
of an American President's time.
Yet the astonishing amount of
time Brezhnev chose to devote
to talks with Kissinger was only
the first part of the message
from the Soviet Union. The sec-
ond part may be called the
message of Zavidovo.
Except perhaps by means of
a U-2 or a reconnaissance
satellite, Zavidovo has never
before been seen by any spokes-
man of a major Western power.
Before Dr. Kissinger, no one
from any country not belonging
to the Soviet empire has ever
been invited to go to Zavidovo.
in fact, with the sole exceptions
of the president of Finland and
Marshal Tito of Yugoslavia.
The place is the nearest equiv-
alent of the President's retreat
at Camp David, but it belongs,
at least theoretically, to all the
members of the Soviet Politburo.
Basically, it is an immense
hunting lodge, situated in deep
forest at some distance from
Moscow. But as a hunting lodge
it is a significantly expressive
product of Soviet society.
It has external dependencies,
such as a large artificial lake,
on which Brezhnev likes to drive
an immensely fast speedboat.
But Zavidovo's core is a wide
area of forest entirely sur-
rounded by a strong wall, which
keeps the wild boar and other
game where they are wanted
and also, presumably, keeps out
undesirable intruders.
The accommodations comprise
a lodge with separate suites for
ordinary members of the Polit-
buro, a species of chalet for the
special use of Brezhnev, the
"first among equals," and a guest
house, which was allotted to Dr.
Kissinger. Brezhnev's chalet was
where the Brezhnev-Kissinger
talks mainly took place. But one
day at Zavidovo, General Sec-
retary Brezhnev also took Dr.
Kissinger out boar hunting
although the President's foreign
affairs adviser might be de-
scribed as a non practicing i
The boar hunting was done
without undue exertion, from a
blind at the feeding place of the
wild boars; but it reportedly re-
quired non-sportsman Kissinger
to don a special, quasimilitary
uniform. The czars also used to
honor important visitors by in-
viting them to go boar hunting.
Altogether, this part of Dr.
Kissinger's visit offers what Sen.
Arthur Vandenberg used to call
"a vivid contemplation."
No word of the substance of
the long discussions at Zavidovo
has as yet seeped out. Yet the
main result is known, of course.

Max Lerner
Sees It
NEW YORKA decade ago, in Paris. I lived where I could
keep a close watch on Charles de Gaulle nearby in his Elysee
Palace, ringed around by a wall of spikes and guns. I was one
of a number of Americans at the time who saw themselves as
De Gaulle watchers and Europe-watchers
It was the time of blossoming hope in the White House,
when a young President had proclaimed an era of Western in-
terdependence, when eager intellectuals talked of a Grand Design
for a united Europe linked with America. But De Gaulle was for
Americans, the wicked monster immurred in his cave, who had
devoured Howard MacMillan and the British and was waiting
for the fat meal of affluent America.
I was writing a book on De Gaulle, the Common Market and
Europe. I attended De Gaulle's press conferences religiously,
made my rounds of all the experts, talked with Jean Monnet. frorri
whose teeming brain the idea of a Common Market and an in-
tegrated Europe had sprung.
I recall especially a luncheon meeting of the Correspondents'
Club where De Gaulle's chief nuclear expert. Gen. Andre
Beaufre. held forth on the French deterrent and the sins of
American policy. Imported to answer him was a visiting Ameri
can called Henry Kissinger, but he was feeling pretty split over
the whole business: While he disliked French policy, he disliked
American policy just as much.
* *
The years have peeled away. The book, alas, is still in the
writing. John Kennedy is dead; so is De Gaulle, who destroyed
Kennedy's European policies but who was himself felled (like a
great oak, wrote Andre Halraux) by the French people, in
whose name he marched grandly on the stage of history. The
British are in the Common Market, and Edward HeathDe
Gaulle's sacrifical victim in the fight over British entryhas re-
placed MacMillian as prime minister.
George Pompidou continues De Gaulle's nationalist policies
on NATO, on gold and the dollar, on a general hostility to the
United States, but in a less grandiose way. Willy Brandt has re-
placed Conrad Adenauer at the helm in Germany, reversing the
old cold war policies and leading Europe toward detente. Richard
Nixon has reversed his own cold-war policies, but is in deep
trouble because in burying the cold warrior he didn't bury the
below-the-belt political fighter at home, and his subterranean
image has come up to devour his global one. And Henry Kis-
singer, who disliked both American and French policies equally
a decade ago in Paris, now is trying to develop an American
policy of his own for Mr. Nixon which thev call the "New Atlan-
tic Charter."

It is a curious, unparalleled situation. Mr. Nixon has had
talks with Heath. Brandt. Giulio Andreotti of Italy and Pompidou.
The Leonid Brezhnev visit comes later in the month, and his own
European visits in the fall. The trouble is that the European
talks, which could set the frame of America's connection to
Europe for years to come, are a sideshow. The main event is in
the Senate Committee Hearing Room where the TV cameras are
In the competition between Mr. Nixon's foreign urgencies
and his domestic disabilities, the foreign urgencies are drowned
out. It is a time of grand projects and of small men. What many
Americans seem to be saying is that until they get the true
measure of Mr. Nixon's doings at home, thev cannot give their
major attention to his projects abroad.
In long-range terms, this will be a loss to the nation and to
Europe as well. The whole direction of the Europe-America con-
nection nas changed during the decade. NATO is still important,
but the nonmilitary tasks are far more important. The question
of mutual troop reduction on both sides depends on more
general settlements between the Soviets and the West.
The new issues between the United States and the Common
Market countries are those of monetary reorganization and trade
Pomprelations. That is the point of Kissinger's New Atlantic
Charter. Pompidou may have tried to freeze out Mr. Nixon at
their meeting in Iceland, but this need not forebode an Ice Age
ahead for the decades to come.
Both tide* owe this, if anything, to the .great aging figure of
Jean Monnet. If any ideas have survived in the quarter-century
since World War II, they are Monnefs. His shadow flourishes
where De Gaulle's has withered. He worked for a United States
of Europe, but never with the idea of opposing it to the United
States across the ocean. His vision was always a pragmatic one
and a unifying one.
As the Watergate show moves on merrily, is there a chance
hat Americans will also be pragmatic and pay some attention
to the ongoing work of foreign policy? U is time for Richard
Nixon to talk again to the people and say. -On Watergate I await
your judgment. Do with me what you will in the end. But mean-
while, there are policies to be shaped and work to be done "

Brandt: Ostpolitik For Israel
German Chancellor Willy Brandt,
enjoying a triumphant tour of Is-
rael, suggested that Israel and the
Arab states take an example from
his "Ostpolitik" policy. Addressing
a state dinner here, Brandt said
his policy of rapproachement with
the Communist bloc has not been
easy but "required us to give up
illusions and indeed to abandon
hopes" because "without a secure
peace, all hope would be in vain."
Israeli Premcir Golda Meir re-

The major surprise of the
Brandt visit was his announce-
ment that Mrs. Meir had accept-
ed his invitation to visit West
Germany at a date yet to be set.
Brandt, who was the first chan-
cellor of West Germany to visit
Israel, repeatedly stressed that the
past cannot be undone nor forgot-
ten. But he made it clear that he
regards the "special relationship"
which characterized Bonn-Jeru-
salem relations to be superceded
by "normal relations" of a "spec-
ial character."
He stressed that West Germany
intends to maintain an even-handed
policy in the Middle East and that
while his country was willing to
help bring the two sides together
it offered neither meditation nor

sured his hosts that improving

details, but it was learned that the
topics included Israel's relations
with the European Common Mar-
ket, continuation of West Ger-
many's DM 140 million annual de-
velopment loans to Israel, expanded
German investment in Israel and
the reparations problem.
During his stay, Brandt called on
President Ephraim Katzir, attend-
ed a reception by Jerusalem Mayor
, Teddy Kollck at which he was in-
troduced to the Arab mayor of He-
bron, Sheikh Mohammed AH el-
Jaabari and was guest of Deputy
Premeir Yigal Allon at his home

he met Israeli Arab and Druze

long discussions with President
Nixon. It is likely that other
highly significant Soviet leaders
will follow Brezhnev.
Hence this part of the signal
is clear. Brezhnev not only ex-

also eager enough to do business
with the President in the most

In the last few weeks a number of exciting things have hap, mod.
Vint oi a]), a small group of couples have been getting together
without any official committees or planning to discuss the Torah.
These young couples are in their late 20's and early 30"s. They have a
discussion leader from their own group and each one prepares for the i
fit together. Some of these young people are not members of temples '
ami yet. in some way. ihey were motivated to begin more serious study j
about who they ere. where they come lrom, and where they are going !
Recently my iamily and 1 received an Invitation from a young
eoirple to attend a late Saturday afternoon picnic supper. We had no
iilca of what to expect and neither did the 30 or more other couples '
and their children who attended. We had our meal, the children played
games, and then w< all gathered to sing Israeli and Jewish folk songs,
to Tell stories, and to discuss Pirko Avoth (Ethics of our Fathers).
At sundown the Havdalah was explained and then the beautiful service
ended the Sabbath. There were well over 100 people there, including
cheldren. It was a wonderful experience.
That same night after the Sabbath, one of our temples had its in-
:. latioa dinner-dance for United Synagogue Youth officers and mem-
ben. It was a lovely evening and then a rock band began to blare
and forced everyone ou' cf the room for a time, making the whole
rli-ucture seem to vibrate. At first I thought the vibration was probably
from the noise, but then I realized it was more likely coming from
the spirit of the 100 or more young people of this community who
were participating in a religious and social get-together.
And if that were not enough jor one weekend, the next evening
tbe Jewish Youth Council of Greater Hollywood had its first annual
aegrda dinner. All the parents of the award winners were invited ani
there were approximately 120 people present. A buffet dinner was
served, awards were given, and then there was entertainment of a
Jewish spiritual nature. It is hard even to call it entertainment because
it was really an educational experience. Songs of the holocaust, cf
Soviet Jewry, of freedom and brotherhood were sung.
All this occurred in just one weekend in Hollywood. The people
v he participated npiescnted every synagogue as well as those who
v< 'i not affiliated. It seems to me that if we analyze just the numbers
of dUforetrt families rcpresenited there were probably 200 to 250 join-

When Judith Eisenstein de-
cided to put together a new guide
to the history and appreciation
of Jewish music, she didn't real-
ize, in 1964, that her short art-
icles, "Words and Music," printed
in "Keeping Posted," would pre-
cede a wholp new wave of inter-
est in musiccreation, singing
and performing and Chassidic
which has emerged today. Like
most musicians and teachers, she
wanted to make the transforma-
tion frcm teaching to creating.
She has been immensely suc-
cessful. "The Heritage of Music"
is a compilation of chants, songs,
and theatre pieces that have
come to us through our heritage
of Jewish experiences.
Most teachers of Jewish music
and serious students complain
that there is a vast shortage of
material for reference use. Well,
here we have one. Mrs. Eisen-
stein's perception and intuitive-
ness have motivated her to com-
pile a volume that is the answer

Why does Rabbinic tradition
require that the dead be buried
with their palms open instead
of with clenched fists?
This tradition is based on a
statement in the Midrash (Ec-
clestiates Rabbah 5:21) which
claims that when a man is born
his lists are clenched as if to say
that he is going to grab everything
he can in this world. Yet, when
he dies his hands are open to show
that he takes nothing with him
from this world. This is based on a
verse in the Biblical book of
Ecclesiates i5:14i which claims
that man 'shall take away nothing
for his laboi "
In view of contemporary med-
ical practice and discoveries,
what is the criterion required
to establish the fact of death in
a human being according to
Jewish Law?
Kabbinic commentaries derive a
general principle in establishing
the occurrence of death from the
Talmud (Yoma 85a) a? being the
cessation of respiration. Sources
later add the absence of a heart
beat as a necessary out not abso-
lutely determining criteria (Cha-
tham Sofer, Yoreh rVah. Re; in
338) requiring both pulse .)_
and heart beat to be absent

There has also been an op
that blood preiiure should 1

as to what is at issue in establu
ing the tact of death, 'e.g.. the pe

to note that there appears to be
little if any overt sibling rivalry
between the two boys.
Perhaps it is this kind of love

3 Jewish Hits and No Errors
Abe Durbia, (left) newly appointed chairman of the Jewish
Community Relations Council, confers with Dr. Norman
Atkin, president of Hollywood's Jewish Welfare Federation.
Jewish Chronicle Feature*
As the Watergate scandals in
Washington have grown and ex-
paneled, Jews have been relieved
that, thus far, no Jewish officials
have been involved. In some mea-
nin at least, this is the result of
the very small number of Jews ap-
pointed by President Nixon to'
major posts in his administration.
There is some satisfaction, on
the other hand, that in the pursuit
)f the culprits, three Jews are
in major strategic positions.
Leonard Garment has been nam-
ed as the President's legal coun-
sellor; Earl Silbert is the chief
prosecuting attorney for the Fed
;ral Grand Jury investigating the
Watergate break-in; and Samuel
^ash is the chief counsel to the
Senate Investigating Committee
which is holding hearingso in the
j Watergate affair.
There is, therefore, no heavy
Jewish conscience about what
iappened at Watergateor about
he so-called "dirty tricks" carried
ut by the Committee to Reeled
the President during the past
presidential campaign.
It is becoming abundantly clear,
iiowever, that the offenses during
i Joseph Kleiman, outgoing chairman of the Jewish Commu-
nity Relations Council, has headed the organization since
its inception four years ago. He is shown with Mrs. Rachel
Abramowitz, guest speaker at the group's annual meeting
?-. J-hich took place last week.
Abe Durbin Assumes
Chairmanship of JCRC
Joseph Kleiman, first and now
outgoing chairman of the Jewish
Community Relations Council,
tamed over the gavel to newly ap-
pointed I. A. Durbin at the group's
annual meeting on June 11.
In his annual report, Mr.
Kleiman traced the history of the
' '-jization from its inception in
vwJrdber 1969 as an arm of the
American Jewish Committee call-
ing itself the Delegate Assembly.
Later it incorporated some 20
different organizations and took on
its present Council structure. Two
vears ago the JCRC was integrated
with the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion and its chairman is now a
member of the Federation's Execu-
tive Committee.
Among the achievements in the
four-year history of the group, Mr.
Kleiman cited the Council's action
in conjunction with other forces
Jl*^iregard to the separation of
%$h and stae in the 1'JCSl School
system, which included a stand
ajainst prayer in the public
The CRC was also actively en-
gaged in arousing public opinion
fallowing the Leningrad trial, ac-
tion which was effective in pre-
cipitating Congressional and other
iThe September Salute to Israel
held at Temple Beth El, which was
attended by some 1.200 residents,
was under the aegis of the Council,
as was the Israel-25 Committees
bration at the bandshell in
May. More than 5,000 members of
the Hollywood community were
present at the latter event.
Other achievements mentioned
by the outgoing chairman included
the development of a 1,000-tele
gram bank which has been used to
wire Congressmen on matters per-
taining to Soviet Jewry, and the
catalytic action the CRC has had
in promoting the image of Israel
through various media.
"All the things I have told you
about," he concluded, "would have
been impossible without the sup-
port and help of all the members
of the Community Relations Coun-
; cil. At heart I have always been
: an optimist and, as I say goodbye
to you, I know that CRC has a
' great and bright future before it."
Mr. Durbin, in accepting the
j chairmanship, told the members
that he felt "as if I were having a
|team turned 6Ver to mea team
that has been training for the past
i four years." He added that he
plans to make use of the forces of
! each of the existing groups which
compose the Council in order to
preclude duplications.
Guest speaker Rachel Abramo-
witz told the Council in imprompty
i remarks that it could be instru-
, mental in aiding Soviet prisoners
j by adopting either an individual
or a family. She exhorted the
, membership to keep applying pres-
' sure on Congress and to help
! bolster Soviet Jewish morale by
I letters and telephone calls to Rus-
the presidential campaign were
not only to law, but also to ethics
and morality.
An arrogant disregard of
minimal democratic values by
the President's "team" has creat-
ed as much concern here as the
criminal acts themselves. Colum-
nists and political analysts have
gathered evidence to demon-
strate that the Watergate "style"
has been consistent with earlier
political methods of the Presi-
dert and his political associates.
Disclaiming any knowledge of
the specific involvement of the
President in the 1972 affair at i
Watergate, the suggestion is never-1
theless made that there was scorn '
for open accountability to the Con-1
' gress and the American people,
and that the self-assurance of the j
I President's associates in all their i
I activities was a misuse of political
I power in a democracy.
In this connection, the inner
i Jewish voice does quiver. If Jews
did not climb through windows or
steal files, there were Jews who
. were directly associated with the
i campaign effort to reeled the
i President and therefore with the
milieu of arrogance and immoral-
! ity.
The reference is not to those
who cast their ballots for Presi-
dent Nixon in the belief that he
was the best candidate for Ameri-
ca and for Jews.
That belief is under challenge of
a different kind, as at the recent
meetings in New York of the
American Jewish Community. At
those meetings, Irving Howe spoke
of the "ungenerous polices of the
Nixon administration, reflecting a
mood of social meanness' in tin-
And the newly elected presi-
dent of the AJC, Elmer L. Wint-
er, asserted that voluntary or-
ganizations would have to 'fill
the voids created by cutbacks
and terminations of government
i programmes affecting disadvau-
taged groups."
The reference above is rather
1 to those who were directly involv-
ed in the conduct of the campaign
which produced the 'dirty tricks."
A little over a year ago, for ex-
ample, a meeting of editors of
Jewish puolications were conven-
ed in Washington, where a Jew-
ish leader introduced them to the
head of that Reelection Commit-
tee who is now under indictment.
It is such people who do raise the
Jewish conscience to the level of

Several weeks ago one of the television networks repeated
airing of a film that drew much publicized cr.ticism. Thi
jfcvtment of protest was reminiscent of the petitions circulated
twoughout Hollywood before the opening of X-rated movie
house:- several years back.
What motivates such censoring maneuvers? If one disap-
proves of X rated films one can utilize the simple expedient of
iOt going to see them. Similarly, one can change the channel if
sinister subject of homosexuality triggers intolerable anguish.
| But what is at the heart of the matter, is an obsession with
"0iarding the morality" of a community. It is not enough to be
able to exercise aesthetic choice; it becomes mandatory that the
peMhetits of others be established for them.
If Webster's number one definition of morality is "of or
frtaining to principles of right and wrong in behavior," we must
ailenge the arrogance of those who would decide what is right
il what is wrong. It is "wrong," for example, to allow a porno
gtaphic film to be screened, but "right" to acquiesce to the
taking of a human life because the corporeal entity which is the
holder of that life is a Jew? It is "wrong' to publish scatological
ooks, but "right" to deprive a black man of educational oppor-
unities. job status and. in many cases, even the use of his sur-
ame? It is "wrong" to permit adult subjects to be aired on
vision, but "right" to ignore the conditions of abject misery
in which mo?t migrant workers live?
In short, are these pillars of "morality" not confusing the
d with "mores" (the fixed morally binding customs of z
particular group?)
! Webster also tells us that "morai may contrast with intel-
lectual or aesthetic as being concerned with character or conduct
rather than with achievement, beauty, success or logical perfec-

Movie Actress as Journalist
Movie actress Shirley MacLaine
has just returned from a six-
weeks tour of China, where she
interviewed Peng Ying-ehao, wife
of Premier Chou En-lai. That is
an opportunity not given to most
journalists, and the impulse is to
wonder what influences favored
A generous attitude would be
that Ms. MacLaine does have con-
siderable journalistic talent and
experience. Back in the early
1960s, when Nikita Khrushchev
was trapsing around the country
with his industrialist friend
Cyrus Eaton. Khrushchev wound
up on a movie set in Hollywood
right in the middle of a Shirley
MacLaine can-can number.
Between takes, she and Khrush-
chev exchanged many serious
thoughts that were widely pub-
licized. After all. what's the
-difference between a movie set
and a kitchen at a Moscow trade
fair, where Khrushchev once en-
gaged another American, also not
a journalist, in debate?
Generosity is Self-Defeating
But generous attitudes can be
self-defeating. If you follow them
to their conclusion, you often
wind up doing and saying things
you don't really mean.
We elected the American at
the trade fair our current Presi-
And in Ms. MacLaine's case
I at least am bound to observe
that she not only returned home
tc report the simple dignity of
Peng Ying-chao, but also the
lovable Chinese quality of guile-
less, non-competitive, mutual self-
If 1 were generous about that,
I might be tempted to forget Mao
Tse-tung's threat that the death
of a hundred million Chinese was
the price he could afford and was
prepared to pay to get rid of "the
iunning dogs of capitalism,"
meaning us Americans, even
though there's nothing much
lovable in that.
Generosity might even lead me
to get all excited about Ms. Mac-
Laine's observation that in her
many conversations with ordi-
nary people, not only the coun-
try's leaders, she found that the
Chinese place great store by
"gathering in small groups to
criticize themselves and each
But here, I refuse to get ex-
cited. Here, my generosity ends.
I simply can't take kindly to her
describing a variety of oriental
encounter therapy, in which one
Chinese might confess to an-
other: "I dreamed last night I
owned a Japanese tape-recorder"
To which the other Chinese
might then reply (with an under-
standing smilei: 'That is a..;
typical bourgeois revanchist fan-
tasy of colonial adventurism, and
while a definite counter-revolu-
tionary threat to the People's
Republic, is completely under-
standable. Only don't do it again"
(criticism of other-1.
Hollywood Happy Endings
The trouble is that a movie
Ctress likes happy endings. But
my own credentials lead me to
the more cynical view that, while
lacLaine heard the Chinese
ciiticizing themselves and each
"1 she says nothing about
ha -. heard the Chinese criticiz-
ing Peng Ying-chao or even Chou
En-lai himself.
More to the point, she says
nothing about whether, on her
six-weeks tour, she ever heard
anything about Peng criticizing
Chou, a noble trait particularly
in a Communist wife that once
caused another Communist, Josef
Stalin, to get rid of one of his,
in that case, the mother of his
daughter, Svetlana.
In fact, generosity in jour-
nalism can lead to all sorts of
problems involving accenting the
wrong syllable of world events.
For example: President Nixon
insists that whatever was done
at Watergate and even before
Watergate in the line of breaking
and entering, wire-tapping, steal-
ing, influence-peddling and other-
wise violating the American
right to privacy was done in the
name of national security.
Now that is a perfectly straight-
forward statement of his bel.ef.
The President loves the country
so much that all of those caperish
acts to insure its security ought
to be justified in the eyes of any-
one with a love of country as
strong as his.
But if my credentials as a
journalist prevented me from
taking the light-hearted approach
to this statement that Ms. Mac-
Laine adopted in her interviews
with Peng Ying-chao and the
Chinese people generally, then as
an alternative 1 would have to
say the following:
Speaking of national security,
Watergate and the scandals lead-
ing up to Watergate are them-
selves the greatest breach of
national security since the Rosen-
Definition of National Security
In fact, I might be tempted to
argue that President Nixon is
himself part of that risk these
days because, through Watergate,
he has undermined the pres-
idency and therefore the confi-
dence of the world in the Amer-
ican commitment to a free and
open society.
And so what is he talking about
when the President is asking us
to excuse Watergate on the basis
that he was concerned with na-
tional security?
Besides, in the heyday of hit
investigations into Communism
as a congressman, the President
had China and Russia in mind.
But these days, he and his in-
dustrialist friends, the ones with
those heavy contributions to his
1972 campaign, find it profitable
to make fat deals with the
Chinese and the Russians, even at
the expense of rank-and-file
Americans who will increasingly
be bearing the economic burdens
of these deals
Reckoned in these terms, a
second question I might be
tempted to ask the President is:
What, in 1972. was Watergate
supposed to be protecting us
from? Who is the enemy now
the object of the breaking and
entering, the wire-tapping, the
stealing, the influence peddling
now that the Chinese and Rus-
sians are kosher?
Brazenness of Israelis
One final example of accenting
the wrong syllable, of generosity
in journalism gone awry: A Ford
Motor Company tycoon expressed
great concern the other day that
Israelis are too brash. Only in
military matters, said the tycoon.
does Israel have a good reputa-
tion abroad.
Otherwise, this brashness, this
intolerable brazenness gives Is-
rael a bad image, and it ought
to be changed. It's not nice for a
Jewish country to have a chip on
its shoulder.
The light-hearted view of world
affairs Ms. MacLaine discovered
in China world affairs seen
through the philosophic mind of
Kung Fu. with rose petals and
butterfly's wings for backdrop
encourages a sympathetic re-
sponse to this, to what on its
face appears to be genuine con-
cern for Israel's best interests.
But somehow, I can't sit still
for that. Something leads me
with the force of its inevitability
to think about the allegation of
Ford's growing softness toward
Arab boycott demands not to do
business with Israel. Even worse,
I am tempted to recall old Henry
Ford and Father Coughlin.
With such skeletons in the
Ford closet, the thought that
comes to mind is. "Look who's
talking about brashness."
The Sieve of Truth
Perhaps there is merit in the
belief that world events are
ponderous enough, and it would
be better to avoid the ponderous
view of them: Chou is a sweet
heart. Watergate was American
rugged individualism in action to
insure a Republican victory. Ford
is a Marcus Welby in disguise
with secret yearnings toward psy-
chiatry. But in jaurnalism, there
is a pronounced line between
light-heartedness and cupidity
In fact, the line is a sieve thai
separates fact from fiction, truth
from propaganda.
Ms. MacLaine's China report
was frank propaganda. If she
didn't mean it to be, then she
should stick to her happy-ending
movie sets. For my part, I don't
know of a journalist who wouldn't
in exchange promise her not to
pretend to be an actor.

Text Of Address Given By
Youth Council President
It is very difficult in such a shoot amount of time to summa-
rize all the happenings of this past year. Whatever I say, I cannot
fcccurately portray all of the long hard hours that were spent in
preparation for the year's events. Nor can I describe all of the
^headaches, upsets, problems, disagreements, disappointments, dis-
V cussions, achievements, pleasures and satisfactions.
What 1 hope to do is to give some idea of the occurrences of
1972-73. I feel that the most important accomplishments have
been the community development and compatibility that have
begun to appear, and the involvement of more now unaffiliated
and uncommitted youth in Judaism. The major reason for this
success probably lies in the establishment of the youth advisory
Hod. This board consists of rabbis, the youth group advisors.
and directors who suggest programs and discuss community
The first, and one of the most successful programs of the
year, was the get-together out at the Berman's ranch. There. 225
young people came and had a good time and demonstrated to the
community its need for youth programming. For the individual
seeking an educational aspect of Jewish life, courses were offered
through the Judaica program.
The monthly meetings of the Youth Council brought inter-
esting speakers including Art Teitelbaum of the Anti Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith; Dennis Prager; five Israeli teen-agers;
Moti Cement of the Jewish Defense League: and two former
Israeli Air Force soldiers. The Youth Council did its share of
community service by assisting underprivileged youth at Pirates
iWorld and by helping to raise money for Teen-age Hotline. For
the boys, a football league was established and a round robin
tournament set up.
In early December, in cooperation with Temple Sinai, an in-
spiring program on Soviet Jewry was presented by people who
have been to Russia. During the winter vacation, the Youth Coun-
cil sponsored a festival of old classic films for high school and
college age youth. Some of them did not turn out as we had
Perhaps the best known activity which the Youth Council
sponsored was the Bike-a-Thon where kids rode 10 20 miles and
. got as many people as possible to sponsor them for a certain
amount of money per mile. All the routes ended up at T-Y Park,
I where there was plenty of food for all donated by the Young
Leaders Council.
Throughout the year, the Youth Council sold Soviet Jewry
"t-medallions and raised more than S80O used to help Fay
ransom and resettlement fees for these people in Israel. In
April, the Hollywood youth performed an outdoor creative sound
and light presentation with the assistance f Rabbi Frarin.
You've heard of a Bike-a-Thon before and a Walk-a-Thon. of
. course, and some of you have even heard of a Work-a-Thon. Well.
the Youth Council had a Phone-a-Thon where the Hollywood
Ifewish Youth Council worked on the campaign by volunteering
\o help call potential contributors. This Phone-a-Thon was a
tige success and hopefully next year, with better planning and
aining, we will raise even more money.
And now, as this year draws to a close, I would like to thank
all of our temples, rabbis, educators, and youth group advisors
i whose counsel and cooperation helped make this year as success-
ful as it was. I wish to thank all the youth groups, their presi-
Jerrts and their representatives who have contributed to our
programs. I thank the Young Leaders Council for its financial
lid and manpower. 1 also thank Mark Fried for devoting so much
>f his time to Youth Council.
I especially wish to thank Ron Treshan for his herculean
ffort on behalf of council activities in addition to all of his
ther duties at Federation. His constant concern and guidance
lave been of tremendous value in the planning and accomplish-
lents of the council..
Of course this year couldn't have been a success without the
lelp of the Youth Council officers, especially Paul Kerbel, (the
>est right hand man in the business).
You've all heard the expression, "last but not least." Well
lis time its last and most important. The Snyder family has
en the motivational force and the source of guidance necessary
see me through this year. I thank them for giving their home,
\r, telephone, refrigerator, and their son.
There are so many other people who have helped but time
>es not permit me to name each one of them. Thank you all.
In conculsion. I feel that we have had r most successful year

re many "growing pains," and needless to say we had our share.

'President is Above Polities'Katzir
Israel's new President Katzii
was most impressed when he
went to see President Shazar
on the night of his election, to be
joined there by the Prime Min-
ister, cabinet ministers. and
members of the Gahal Party who
had just moved a vote of no con-
fidence in the government, and
had lost. Everyone sat telling
Jewish jokes. "This indicates that j
the President is above political j
The thousands of messages of ,
congratulations he has received ]
from Israelis and people abroad !
have all stressed this aspect of
the President being above the
political fight, a symbol of the
nation's cherished values.
Benefit Mankind
On one hand, scientists are
treated with great respect in
Israel: on the other hand, they
are no longer worshiped in the
world as they once were, because
of the atom bomb, pollution, and
other ills. .What does he see as
the role of the scientist in a
modern society?
"Science is a doctrine at-
tempting to understand nature
by means of the scientific
method. Intellectual curiosity
is an essential need of modern
man; he wants to understand
the animal and nonliving
worlds in which he dwells. The
scientific method involves ap-
plying to nature five steps
observation, generalization,
hypothesis, experiment, law.
"Scientists say: 'Nature is here,
let's discover what it's all about."
They also say: 'Nature is usually
not cooperative, but she's not
vicious. She plays fair, she
doesn't change the rules of the
game.' It would be impossible to
stop scientific questioning, even
if we wanted to, which of course,
no one does.

scientist has at the back of bis

tunately died prior to publication) and all are
associated with the Hebrew University.
Tcherikover is the author of "Hellenistic
Civilization and trie Jews," which was published
in 1959. There does not appear to be much new
material or significant changes or interpretations
between his contribution to the Rutger University
Press publication and his previous work, although
photos have been added to the new volume.
Although all the chapters are of a high
quality, the book suffers from the absence of
many facets of the history of the period. This
defect is undoubtedly due to compression. A
text of 297 pages can net do mor? than supply
erudite fragments of one of the most important
three centuries of Jewish history. We wonder
and possibly question the overwhelming number
of Jewish historians who are qualified. We men-
tion this as a caveat for future volumes in this
world history.
How Nature Knew Best at Huleh
|AIFA It was just about 15
years ago that Israel's plan-
's proclaimed with glee that
maps of the country would

^np drainage project in the
had been completed. Lake
had disappeared from the
'face of the earth. Almost 15.000
icree of fertile farmland had
yeen created, and the aica would
become the bread basket of
The drainage had been achiev-
ed by diverting the Jordan River

lo a series of canals which led

as to whether it was more
lomical to dig the peat and
Jit as fuel, or exploit it as a
I, natural fertilizer.
The drainage of the Huleh Val-
ley was hailed as one of the most
'~arkable engineering achieve-
in the history of the young
state. Every Israeli and ever.
Zionist swelled with pride as the
story was told.
That was 15 years ago. The
dream has vanished, the high
hopes have proven vain, and the
tampering with nature has b?-
gun to have dangerous effects on
both water and soil. The peat
was not at all as fertile as expect-
ed, and the crops proved disap-
pointing. The swamp did indeed
d'sappcar. but the chemical salts
of the soil leached out and drain-
ed down into the Sea of Galilee.
This. Israel's only natural res-
ervoir of fresh water, began to
show an alarming increase in
salinity, menacing the Country's
water supply. It suddenly began
to dawn upon the planners that
perhaps sometimes nature does
know best. Reluctantly, and only
after much hesitation, the of-
ficials had to admit that the
whole thing had been a mistake.
The Huleh Valley Authority,
which had been set up to ad-
minister the farmlands, has been
dismantled. Much of the area is
again being flooded in hopes
that the contamination of Sea
of Galilee will be arrested. Some
of the border lands are being as-
signed to neighboring villages,
but the largest part of what used
to b:- the Huleh will now become
a great Nature Preserve.
Rare birds and wild animals
which had become almost extinct
as a result of the changes made
by man. are now beginning to
return. Exotic plants, existing
nowhere else in Israel, have
magically begun to respond and
reappear, as the area returns to
its forme-r natural condition.
The Huleh lake and swamp will
be carefully controlled by the ap-
propriate bodies which are con-
cerned with the protection of na-
ture- The acreage will become a
semi-wild national park, where Is-
raelis will be able to commune
with nature and find refuge from
the smoke and noise and bustle

ldug'-'ery variously known as the Watergate

If it is true, as grand jury court proceedings

"The trouble with Republicans is that when they
pet in trouble, they start acting like a bunch of

periencc and wisdom, this observation might
be applied now and then to Democrats. Which
isanship is fiercer is the issue at this juncture
in the unwinding of the Watergate affair. The
character of men in high places is the issue.
But here we are 15 years later. And any
wiser? One has to wonder. Don't we all shudder
at least a little when we karn that a Washington
attorney is authority for the conclusion that John
J. Wikon. selected by John HalJcman and John
D. Ehrlichmann as their attorney in this time of
still another crisis, is "anti-black. anti-Jewish,
and anti-everything that happened since the First
World War. and makes no bones about it?"
And don't we tremble even more when we
behold insensithity attending the determination
of the White House to keep the investigation of
Watergate in the hands of the in-group?
Americans, awakening at long last, ask hard-
to-answer questions Docs the CIA belong to the
party in power? Did we all really break into
Watergate as one in high office has suggested? If
we are asked to show compassion for those now
in trouble in Washington, shall we forget about
that cadre's vow not to grant amnesty to young
men who didn't want to fight a war into which
America was led by misguided older men?
Those who ask such questions also express
thank6 and gratitude to a free and vigilant press.

A Reader Offers Apology
For Nasty Letter to the Editor
A HAIFA woman named Bella Gerald apologized to the Jer-
usalem Post last week for writing a letter to the editor in
which she had professed anger at the military parade in Jeru-
salem. Now, having heard details of it on the radio-she did not
actually see itshe has changed her mind. "Just listening," she
wrote in a second letter to the editor, "one could hardly fail to
feel the real spirit of the parade, its moving pleas for peace, for
brotherhood between nations."
The officials who ran the military parade have promised to
dismantle all the equipment, including flags and grandstands, in
three weeks. The day after the parade, the men were already
at work, taking down the main reviewing stand in East Jeru-
Israel Aircraft Industries invited newsmen on a special tour
and promised to announce 'big news." It turned out that the
most interesting revelation was that Israel Aircraft Industries
was not as willing to find a vacancy for just-retired Air Force
Chief Mordechai Hod as Hod was. The Air Force Chief retired
the day after the parade. May 8. and two days before the tour.
The new dean of the diplomatic corps, Finland's Ambas-
sador Algar von Hicroth. appeared at Abba Eban's Independence
Day banquet wearing a big plaster on h' forehead. No, he ex-
plained, when proposing the toast to the State of Israel's second
quarter-century, he had not worn it specially for the occasion.
It was the result of a mishap at the Caesaria golf course. "A
fifteen-year-old Sabra underestimated his strength and over-
estimate,-', his aim." the ambassador explained.
Finland made a warm gesture for Israel's 25th anniversary
which left officala here pleasantly surprised. President Urho
Kekkoncn sent one of Finland's elder statesmen, former Premi-
er Karl August Fagerholm. to Israel with a special congratula-
tory message to President Zalman Shazar from the people of
Finland. Scores of messages from fo"eign governments were
received at Shazar's residence during the Independence cele-
brations^but this was the only message delivered by so august
an envoy.

For Ben-Gurion,
The Bible is Real History
\A/HI N onp visits David Ben-Gurion at his residence in Sdeh
Bokcr. one cannot escape noticing the many Bibles on his
desk in his librarylarge Bibles, small Bibles, various editions
published in various countries, at various times, in various
To the first Prime Minister of the State of Israel, the
Bibleas he explained to meis not only a book of Jewish
history and ethics, but also a guiding volume to many natural
resources in the country which, he believes, are still deeply
buried under the sands, not yet rediscovered but awaiting re-
Sold on this idea. Ben Gurion cites as example the fact that
the Timneh copper mines in the Ncgev were discovered by
studying the period of King Solomon. Also that during the siege
of Jerusalem in the early months of the War of Independence
when the city was completely isolated from the rest of Israel,
suffering from lack of food, watpr and ammunition to repulse
the Arabsit was through a hint in the Bible that the existence
of an ancient long-forgotten road to Jerusalem was discovered.
It later became Israel's "Burma Road" carved out through
rough mountain trails leading to direct contact with the
capita! and freeing the city from siege.
Ben Gurion believes that Israel was not only a land of milk
and honey in ancient times. He asserts that the area had
bronze, silver, lead, tin and other metals from which tools,
weapons and ornaments were made as far back at 5.000 years
ago; the Bible refers also to gold. He therefore follows with the
greatest interest the various excavations now being carried out
in Israel. Biblical archaeology is to him important in general,
but he especially anticipates that eventually they will yield
metallurgical discoveries important to the country.

Jewish Agency officials weren't eager to make a big splash
with the news, but the significance of Uzi Narki;s. trip to Heb-
ron was not lost. The Director of the Agency's Immigration
and Absorption Department was busy last week scouting Kiryat
Arba. the Jewish Quarter near Hebron, for the possibilities of
setting up an Absorption Center there. If the Government ap-
proves^and this seems likelyit would be the first such Center
in Israel's administered territories.
