Women's Division Campaign
Leaders For '74 Announced
Mrs. Marsha Tobin has agreed
to chair the 1974 Women's Divi-
sion campaign for the second
successive year, Dr. Norman
Atkin, president of the Jewish
Welfare Federation, has an-
nounced. Under Mrs. Tobin's di-
rection, the 1973 campaign was
able to increase women's dona-
tions to the largest figure in his-
tory, $112,000.
Cochairmen serving with Mrs.
Tobin will be Susan (Mrs. Jack)
Miller and Anita (Mrs. Henry)
Weiss. Mrs. Miller, while describ-
ing her bacKground as being
from "everywhere," came to Hol-
lywood two years ago from the
midwest. She was involved in the
Cleveland Women's Division of
Federation, and most recently
was chairman of the Immigration
Experience held locally.
Mrs. Weiss, a South Miamian.
moved to Pittsfield, Mass., but
grew nostalgic for the area of her
birth, and came back to Florida
two years ago. She was previous-
ly active in Miami Federation
and was in charge of program-
ming for the Suburban League
which supports Variety Chil-
dren's Hospital. During the
Greater Hollywood 1973 UJA
campaign Mrs. Weiss, who lives
at the Hemispheres, was in
charge of planning all parlor
Nixon Given Legitimacy
Peace Moves
Win Ground
|#nt Habib Bourguiba of Tunisia
has succeeded in winning the
tacit approval of most Arab states
and the of Palestinian guerrilla
Sdership for his plan to initiate
Mddlc East peace talks with Is-
rael, the London Times reported
The Tunisian leader also
sounded out American reaction
to the plan before he made it
public in interviews with two
Italian newspapers last month,
the report said.
The Times, quoting well-
placed Tunisian sources, said
Bourguiba has made his peace
initiative the spearhead of his
foreign policy. It added that
secret contacts with the Israelis
are expected to be held in
Geneva where Bourguiba, his
foreign minister and top aides
now are.
Israel's initial reaction to the
Bourguiba move was that it was
not serious, although Premier
Golda Meir said subsequently that
she was willing to meet with any
Arab leader to discuss peace. The
casual manner in which the Tunis-
ian leader announced his plan
through the press belied months
of groundwork that led up to it,
the Times said.
According to the Times, Egyptian
approval was won. Later Tunisian
Foreign Minister Muhammad Mas-
moudi discussed the broad out-
lines of the plan with El Fatah
leader Yassir Arafat during a visit

NEW YORK Q: What did Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev get
from Mr. Nixon? A: Trade terms, credits, investments, global prestige.
Q: What did Mr. Nixon get from Brezhnev? A: Legitimacy.
The above question-and-answer
bit oversimplifies the summit, yet
1 stand by it. Brezhnev's needs
were primarily economic, but he
also wanted an American visit for
prestige before he left for France
and resumed his wooing of Europe.
But Nixon's need for legiti-
macy, especially before the John
Dean testimony, was more des-
perate. Brezhnev gave it to him
and carried off the feat with
great virtuosity and no after-
Surely it is one of the extreme
ironies of history that the head of
a Communist regime should lend
legitimacy to the head of a dem-
ocratic one, and make it more
credible for him to eovern.
Yet tnat is what happened. From
the viewpoint of Nixon's survival
as President, the Brezhnev summit
was an oasis between two desert
stretches, swept by the sandstorms
of the Senate testimony. The nego-
tiations with the heads of Com-
munist empires, as head of the
American empire, show Nixon off
at his best, just as the stream of
revelations in the press and on TV
shows him at his worst.
To survive his image as a low-
level intriguer, his image as high-
level negotiator will have to stay
sharply etched in people's minds.

Leonid I. Brezhnev personally gave
this indication on June 18 when
questioned bv a Jewish Telegraphic

The United States and the Soviet
Union expressed "deep concern"
this week over the continuing Mid-
dle East conflict, acknowledged
that they were still far apart on a
solution but pledged to avoid a
confrontation in that area.
These were the main points re-
lating to the Middle East in the
joint communique by President
Nixon and Soviet Communist Party
Secretary Leonid Brezhnev, re-
leased in San Clemente, Calif., and
in the briefing for newsmen by
presidential advisor Henry Kis-
Brezhnev, who ended his nine-
day American visit Sunday morn-
ing, said in a television address to
the American people Saturday
night that the Middle East situa-
tion is still "very acute."
The Joint communique said
that both superpowers "agreed
to exert their efforts to promote
the quickest postible settlement
in the Middle East" which
"should be in accordance with
the interest of all the states in
the area, be consistent with their
independence and sovereignty
and should take into account the
legitimate interests of the Pal-
estinian people."
Dr. Kissinger, in his briefing,
referred to the Middle East as
"one of the most complex areas"
and said that the Arab-Israeli con-
flict and the "so-called great
power rivalry" are "inextricably
Kissinger stressed that neither
the U.S. nor the Soviet Union
"agree on the evolution of the
Middle East conflict or how it
should be resolved." He said that
both sides will make an effort not
to be inextricably involved in the
conflict; both sides recognized the
importance for a solution; will help
to promote it and hope some prog-
ress will be made during the year.
Kissinger said that "obviously
the Middle East is part of the un-
finished agenda" of Nixon and
Brezhnev and will be taken up
again at their third summit meet-
ing in Moscow next year. "We
didn't expect to finish it at this
meetinc." he added.
The presidential advisor stressed
the dangers in the continuing con-
flict. He said that in 1970 the great

In Unity Lies Strength
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Members of the Jewish Community Relations
Committee will be invited to express their views on matters ot com-
mon interest in ensuing months. The first such..A*prs^ioQAOn"s froaft
a committed and active resident who has long been an articulate
spokesman on the Hollywood scene, and who is the newly appointed
chairman of the committee.)
"Jews are a weak and inferior peopl?." This shocking state-
ment has been familiar to us for thousands of years, yet it takes
on shades of absurdity if we examine our ethical and moral codes,
our achievements in science, literature, art and government.
Our collective intellect, our moral conduct and our creativity
have certainly been outstanding as the record of history show's
yet the above statement is valid! When before have you
heard of a victor having to ask the defeated to sit down for the
purpose of discussing peace?
It is unfortunate but true that the world respects strength
and that the Jews as a community, within the community of na-
tions, have received respect only through the strength exhibited
by the State of Israel.
In a world of over 3 billion, our total population numbers less
than 14 million The second largest Jewish community (the Soviet
Union) remains in bondage deprived of culture, cut off from
freedom of religion, and continually harassed if attempts are
made to practice its faith or to leave for a free land.
The largest Jewish community (the United State;) is the
wealthiest and freest of any in history, yet it makes up only five
per cent of the American population and has no control over the
economy, government or cultural society. Still today and near-
by are clubs that do not accept Jews as members regardless of
their education, wealth, background or stature in the world.
The third largest Jewish community (Israel) is surrounded
on all sides by a sea of enemies who, if given the opportunity,
would totally destroy, it.
In the face of these facts, we are a weak and inferior people
which makes it more imperative than ever that we band together
with a singularity of purpose in order simply to survive.
As obvious as the needs are for unity, for commitment and
for singularity of purpose, there are those who persist in con-
cerning themselves solely with their own selfish, short-sighted
desires. This persists not only at the individual but at the organi-
zational level. Too often one Jewish organization refuses to co-
operate with another, usually at the expense of the community.
A multitude of organizations and committees has mush-
roomed into a conglomeration of factions resulting in gross
inefficiency in terms of achieving objectives for the common good.
Having a competitive attitude is a good thing. However, we
must view our Jewish community as a organization made up of a
complex of diversified and individual organizations which serve
a purpose necessary and complementary to all. Without these
healthy arms the Jewish community will not function, which is
why a balance must be maintained.
Within this complex organization known as the Jewish com-
munity it must be clearly understood that the function of the
individual is interdependent on and complementary to all. The
community cannot survive if it allows one of its vital organiza-
tions to die.
The key to our survival is the degree to which each unique
organization successfully interrelates to all the others.
The Jewish Community Relations Committee, an arm of the
Hollywood Jewish Welfare Federation, sees its role as that of a
nerve center not to dominate, but to coordinate. Through this
council we ihall be able to help each other as we shall have a
broader base from which to work.

CJFWF Statement
I ..Qn Soviet Jewry. m
Following is the text of a resolution adopted by the board
of directors of the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare
Funds June 16:
"The visit to the U.S. of Leonid Brezhnev, General Secretary
of the Communist Party of the U.S.S.R. can be an historic step
in the relaxation of tensions and the promotion of detente be-
tween the U.S. and the Soviet Union. The Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds welcomes the effort to improve
relations and to develop peaceful interchange and detente.
"We appreciate the effort the President of the United States
has made in raising at the highert levels the issues of the ran-
som tax and the continuing emigration of Soviet Jewry, but we
arc deeply anguished, and most profoundly distressed by the
harassment and imprisonment of Soviet Jews who want to leave,
and the other impediment? to those who want to emigrate. We
are confident that the President will interpret to Secretary
Brezhnev the importance of ameliorating conditions of Soviet
Jewry and eliminating these barriers to detente.
"We believe that the President's hands are strengthened by
the legislation proposed by. Sen. Jackson and Rep. Mills and Rep.
Vanik, which conditions the granting of 'most favored nation'
status to the Soviet Union upon the easing of emigration restric-
tions. We therefore support these congressional actions.
"We believe that appropriate and responsible public activi-
ties during Secretary Brezhnev's visit can make an important im-
pact in expressing how deeply Americans feel about the plight
of Soviet Jewry. We therefore support the National Freedom
Assembly in Washington, D.C. on June 17, as well as the other
actions being sponsored by our central local community organiza-
The June 17 assembly referred to above was sponsored by
the National Conference on Soviet Jewry, and the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations: local com-
munity participation was coordinated by the National Jewish
Community Relations Advisory Council.

Little Changed By Summit
Although he reported to the nation that he and Presi-
dent Nixon had spent "a lot of time" in discussing the
Middle East situation there was nothing in Leonid Brezh-
nev's televised address last weekend which provided any
clues that might lead to positive action in that direction.
Coming on the heels of the most recent Egyptian statement
that prior withdrawal of Israel's forces from territory occu-
pied in 1967 continues to be a pre-condition of negotia-
tions, the latest summit would appear to have changed
little in that area.
The Soviet leader proved himself a practiced lobbyist
at meetings with Congressional and business leaders. His
effectiveness with the former, in particular, is guestionable
from all reports. As long as the persecution of prominent
Jews seeking to emigrate to Israel continues, as long as the
restrictions on leaving the Soviet Union are maintained,
despite denials, an overwhelming majority of the U.S.
Congress is likely to withhold most favored nation trading
status from the Soviets.
The improved relations between the U.S. and the So-
viet Union are to be highly desired but they must not come
at the expense of our historic position that demands free-
dom for all people not alone Jews and there can be
no letup in the campaign as it reaches its most critical
stage. To become "The Jews of Silence" again is to desert
our own at a time when we are needed most
Incidents Illustrate Need
The authenticated reports that the B'nai B'rith has
been under surveillance by the Central Intelligence Agency
(CIA) comes as a shock to the Jewish community, if not as
a surprise at a time when revelations of this kind are ev-
ery-day news.
As the leaders of America's oldest Jewish service
organization have stated, such surveillance is not only
illegal and outrageous, but violates the principles on
which our democracy was built.
That an American institution as sound and conserva-
tive as B'nai B'rith could come under the secret study of
the CIA only highlights the abuse of the Constitutional
rights of others with lesser reputations. While we hold no
brief for the Jewish Defense League, the recent raid on its
office by New York City police and the FBI was no less
damaging to those rights, from all accounts.
The fight against police state tactics Is not a Jewish
issue, but these two incidents involving organizations of
differing philosophies illustrate the need for vigilance in
protecting the Constitutional rights of all, whether we ap-
prove of them or not.
Problem Is Not New
To its study, announced last November, of Jewish
communal priorities, the Synagogue Council of America
just recently added three more major ones to the list, in an
effort to explore the future role of the synagogue in Amer-
ican Jewish life.
The program includes such familiar topics as Jewish
community transition, Jewish marriage patterns and Jews
on campus They sound fcrmiliar because these and other
studies have been made or are in progress and at least
announced, if nothing else by virtually every Jewish
organization worthy of the name in the United States. To
top it all off there is, of course, the data accumulated by
the National Jewish Population St#dy which should keep
scholars busy for years.
It may be too much to hope for, as a fact of institu-
tional life, the obvious duplication, not to say prolifera-
tion, of studies be given greater thought before launching.
This problem among Jews is not new. After all. how long
ago was it that Ecclesiastes wrote: "Of making many books
there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the
Breahne* lacrived in. this tcity
for talks with the Pre*dent. The
absence of advance interest in
this lemarkabae event it a meas-
ure of the near insanity pro-
duced by the Watergate obses-
The whole country, please re-
member, was passionately ex-
cited by Nilcita S. Khrushchev's
visit in President Eisenhower's
time. Yet the Khrushchev visit
was strictly atmospheric.
Neither side attempted to enter
into substantive negotiations.
The only result was the much-
vaunted "spirit of Camp David,"
which had no detectable effect
on the course of history-.
In sharp contrast, the Brezh-
nev visit has excited no one. Yet
if you trouble to look into the
facts, you are forced to con-
clude that we should all be in-
tensely excited. For the facts
plainly indicate that the Brezh-
nev visit will be altogether dif-
ferent in basic character from
any previous Soviet-Western
summit meeting with the sole
possible exception of President
Nixon's visit to Moscow.
So much was plain from the
mere nature of the preparations.
These had no precedent in the
whole strange, difficult history
of Soviet-American relations.
Even the place where the work
was done was unprecedented:
for no Western emissary' had
ever seen the Politburo's huge
hunting lodge at Zavidovo. where
Dr. Henry' A. Kissinger was re-
ceived by Brezhnev and his for-
eign minister, Andrei Gromyko.
The character of the work
done at Zavidovo also had no
precedent. No Western chief of
state let alone a mere emis-

ever been given four entire days
of the undivided time of any of
the successive bosses of the So-

of thing that overburdened na-
tional leaders do for mere at-
mospheric purposes.
The purpose was in fact hard,
preparatory work on the forth-
coming meeting between Leonid
Brezhnev and Richard M. Nixon.
In sending Kissinger to Zavi-
dovo, the President recognized
the simple principle that ill-
prepared meetings between
heads of state are never very
useful, and can even be dan-
gerous. In giving so much time
to Kissinger, Brezhnev recog-
nized the same principle.
Brezhnev therefore came to
Washington with the main lines
already laid out for prolongud.

negotiations of the most sub-
stantive character. If all goes
well, the result will be no em-

result will instead be a series of
solid, carefully drawn-up agree-

in all, between the American
President and the Soviet Gen-
eral Secretary.

In briff. if all goes well, the
Brezhnev visit's main result may
well be a historical turning
point in the Soviet Union's over-

turning point is possible and
even likely because practical
circumstances are slowly forc-

historical significance.
The nature of the choice is
best summed up in Max Hay-

NEW YORK, N.Y. At a primary- election in California
five years ago Robert Kennedy prevailed, and that night he was
killed and became part of history. Although he had held only one
elective office senator from New York he was the most
dramatic political figure of the scarred decade of the '60s.
There were two talks with him that I recall best. One was
when he was still a'iorney general, after his brother's death, in
his big office with his dogs and mementoes. We talked of his
tense relations with President Johnson and of his future plans.
I didn't learn much new. but it was the man himself I had come
to see resilient after tragedy, with those Savonarola fires in
his eyes banked but not extinguished.
The second time was when he was senator. He had a tight
schedule, and 1 drove with him on an inspection tour of public
housing. We talked mainly of the war. but I recall best his pleas-
ure when he was repeatedly recognized and cheered. I felt that
the little "runt," as his brothers had called him, had more than
made up for his towlv place in the Kennedy family pecking order,
snd that the conta .. with the people on the street were the
freshets from which he drank and found renewed strength.
Militant in his positions, with a streak of messianism in
him, he was often conservative in tactic. His decision not to
run against L.B.J. in the 1968 primaries was dictated by prudence.
When Johnson withdrew. Eugene McCarthy's supporters felt
bitter about Bobby's entering the field, but what did they ex-
pect? His motive was not only personal ambition but a convic-
tion that he stood a better chance to win both the nomination
and election, and end the war. and start new social programs.
On both counts he was right. His "New Politics" was a
politics of hope for the displaced and disowned of American
society. But he also had a strong appeal for many among the
blue-collar and white ethnic groups, as well as for the rising
class of professionals in the knowledge industries. The Indiana
primary results reflected this capacity to make both an equal-
access appeal and a law-and-order appeal. He could have won
the 1968 election. Whether against Mr. Nixon or anyone else, and
won again in 1972.
History would have been different. We would have had the
war's end. the detente with China and Russia, the SALT talks
without Watergate.

acrid feeling about him of what might have been. For John Ken-
nedy had a chance to show his qualities in action, while Bobby
didn't. He might, of course, have flopped, both in the election
and the White House. But I don't think he would have. Too
much had gone into the making and tempering of bis mettle.
There had been too many taut moments, too many assayings of
dangerous situations, too many times when he was in on life-
and death decisions.
It is rarely in history that family upbringing, native ability,
the spirit of the times and an unparalled apprenticeship all
worked together to hone clown a political leader to the felt needs
of a nation. The heartbreak was that it was the consummate
preparation for something that never came off.
It was not an easy apprenticeship. The Kennedy boys had to
climb mountains, shoot rapids, beat rivals, captivate women,
convict wrongdoers, win elections, constantly set new goals to
Jack's campaigns were a good practice ground, the McClellan
committee antirackets job was bette;. the attorney general post
best of all. But the danger was that of operating always in his
brother's shadow, as a political technician. The Cuban missile
crisis, when he headed the Ex Comm. brought him closest to
the edge of high decision.
Cf all the brothers, he was the one most sensitive to the ills
of the society, with a social conscience that just teetered on the
edge of the possessed. The killing of his brother added the touch
of the tragic that he needed for deepening his feeling and weldin;
the pragmatic with the committed.
There were flaws. He might have stretched too far what
writer Henry Fairlie has called the "Kennedy promise." which
always raised more expectations among the people than it couKi
fulfill and brought more tensions. Nor was he by any mean-
a saint. He shared with his brothers the human failings of mortal
flesh. In a time when sexual codes were changing, the Kennedy's
father and brothers were part of the change and not part of
the resistance. That, too. has become part of his myth since his
But anything like Watergate would have horrified and re-
pelled him. And what a distance between the presence in the
White House of the extraordinary group that clustered around
Bobby and the group that spelled disaster for Richard Nixon.

A report submitted recently at the quarterly board meeting of the
Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds indicates that the
intermarriage rate of Jewish people marrying nonJews has increased
to at least 33 per cent. In other words, one out of every three is mar-
ried to a non-Jew. Indications are that this is a conservative estimate.
Another report recently heard demonstrates that by the year 2000,
less than a generation from today, there will only be four million
Jews in America compared to the present figure of 6.2 million a de-
crease of one-third. These are very disconcerting signs. Within a few
days of these reporte came another from the Central Conference of
American Rabbis stating that they have approved a resolution preclud-
ing Reform rabbis from participating in mixed marriage ceremonies.
Last year the Institute for Jewish Life was formed as an instru-
ment to enhance Jewish life and Jewish identity in America. More
funds are being put into Jewish education by local Federations .
there has been a tremendous rise in the support of day schools and
Hillel foundations on the campus have increased allocations to their
budgets and programs ... yet the facts at the beginning of this article
are true and the rate of increase of intermarriage continues.
Not only do we need to inquire as to the reasons, but also as to
what can be done to stem the tide. Intermarriage is not a new concept
in Judaism; the Torah and the writings of Judaism are replete with
stories of intermarriage. There have been periods in our existence
when intermarriage was more usual than we really would like to ac-
cept, but in most of the cases of the past, with some notable exceptions,
the non-Jew became a convert to Judaism. According to present
studies this is no longer so. We find that in many cases where there
is a conversion it is for the purpose of the marriage and that the
Judaism followed after the birth of children is minimal or non-exis-
tent. There are those cases, of course, where the convert to Judaism
becomes a much stronger Jew than one born a Jew.
However, we are now talking about one-third of our young people
who will -probably not marry a Jewish spouse. I think some of the rea-
sons for this large intermarriage rate are obvious. We are living in a
free, open society where, fortunately, we are accepted as equals. Our
children are going to universities away from their families, meeting
students of all backgrounds and religious persuasions. Over 80 per
cent of our Jewish children are becoming college educated. They are
learning and accepting the equality of all men. They are learning
about the universal concept of justice and have learned about the in-
justice of man. One beautiful world where all are equal is the ideologi-
cal foundation for much of their education. By and large, they are at
campuses away from family and hometown influences.
Another factor is the tremendous mobility of American society.
The Commerce, Department indicates that one out of every five Amer-
icans moves every year, and of this group more than 25 per cent move
to different communities. This mobility rate also affects family rela-
tionships and traditional ties, and is part of our living in open society.
If we want to blame anyone or any instrumentality of Judaism
there are many doors that can be opened to criticism, such as lack of
Jewish practice within the home, the end of Jewish education for most
of our children at Bar Mitzvah age. and so forth. Figures also indicate
that there is a reduction in the number of Jewish children in religious
schools, and while growth of the day-school movement is increasing in
numbers of campuses, the number of students enrolled is declining.
The above may make us feel depressed or anxious. However, pos-
sibly there is a new tack we should take and that is to look at the two-
thirds of the Jewish people who will marry Jews. Maybe we should
ask them why they plan to marry or are married to a Jew. Possibly
we can find some hint of what needs to be done to help them find that
their decision is correct. Perhaps we should meet with the kids who go
to the various Jewish camps who are active "Jewishly" on the campus
and ask them why they are as they are. Let them tell us what has con-
tributed to their feelings, however minimal or positive it may be, that
makes them identify enough as a Jew to choose a spouse who is also
What can be done? There is no panacea ... no easy answer. I
think we must all struggle together to find whatever force we possibly
can and work and cooperate together to find the answer. It may mean
giving up institutional loyalties or ideological chauvinism.
1 do not know the answer maybe some of you do ... if so,
please share it with us.

Protestants Hit in Bonn
BONN (JTA) The Christian-Jewish Associations in
We^t Germany. .vho>e patron is West German President Gustav
Heinemann. have severely censured German Protestant student
organizations for their open letter to Chancellor Willy Brandt,
prior to his visit to Israel.
The letter, leftist and pro-Arab in tone, spoke of "Israeli
annexation of the occupied territories" and the "expulsion of
Palestinians." It described Brandt's trip to Israel as. "legitimiz-
ing the military safe-guarding of oil supplies." and "discrimina-
tion" against Arabs in Germany after the Munich Olympic mas-
sacre. The coordination committee of Christian-Jewish Associa-
tions said it had read the open letter "with anger and amazement."
It said Protestant students were running the risk of align-
ing with leftist thinking and were cynical when they spoke, on
the one hand of the memory of Jews murdered by the Nazis and,
on the other, supported arguments dangerous to the lives of
Jews and Palestinians.

Aleph Godol (president) of Alaph

president of the newly organized
Broward BBYO board of directors.
In an emotionally charged instal-

president of the South Florida
Council of B'nai B'rith Lodges,
and past president of Florida's
BBYO board of directors, described
the rapid growth in Broward Coun-

current 10.

agers as they were helped in their :
search for friends, social accept-

a member of the Broward County

Board members at large are Mrs.
Michael Demet, Mrs. Alan Rosen-

representatives from the BBYO
Youth Council are also members of
the adult board.
As a teen-ager, Mr. Tow, a cer-
tified public accountant, was a
member of the AZA-322 chapter of
Miami: the chapter is still in ex-
istence. In his role as president of
the Men's Council he is responsible
for providing leadership to 40
lodges with a total membership of

Kissinger did not explain why-
he believed that brief incident of
intra-Arab conflict contained the
seeds of a big power confrontation.
It was recalled here, however, that
the U.S. Sixth Fleet was alerted
during that crisis, that the Rus-1
sians still maintained a huge mili-
tary establishment in Egypt and,
that Moscow supported Damascus
while the U.S. backed Jordan.
Kissinger acknowledged that to
day's joint communique made it
clear that there was no unanimity
of views on the Middle East be-
tween the U.S. and Russia. Whether
the differences are "as wide or
narrower, the future must decide.
Obviously, we discussed this issue
at some length," he said.
In his TV address reportedly
taped in Moscow before Brezh-
nev came to the U.S., the Soviet
leader said with reference to
the Middle East: "We believe in
that arej justice should be as-
sured as soon as possible and a
stable peace settlement reached
that will restore the legitimate
rights of those who suffeied from
the war and insure the security
of all people in that region. This
is important for all people in the
Middle East with no exceptions.
This is also important for the
maintenance of universal peace."
Observers thought it was signifi- was any mention made of the

that Soviet Communist Party
Secretary Leonid I. Brezh-
nev gave a false picture of
the rate of Jewish emigra-
tion from the Soviet Union
in his presentation to U.S.
Congressmen in Washington
last week.
According to Absorption
Minister N'atan Peled and
Jewish Agency Executive
chairman Louis Pincus,
Brezhnev's figures do not
tally with those compiled in
Speaking on a radio in-
terview, Pincus said that
while Brezhnev claimed
that 250 exit visas are
granted out of 750 appli-
cants on a list of "hard-
ship" cases presented by
Dr. Henry' Kissinger to the
Soviet authorities, only 10
persons on the list have
Pincus also disputed
Brchznev's assertion that
60.200 exit visas were granted
out of 61,000 applications
submitted in 1972. According
to Pincus, only 62,000 Rus-
sian Jews have reached Is-
rael from 1968 to the end of
May, 1973. He said that in
that Deriod 180,000 visa ap-
plications were submitted by-
Russian Jews.

Solel Sisterhood Holds Coffee
For Its New Members
Observers studying the joint
communique and Kissinger's sub-
sequent remarks said it was clear
that the Middle East is still a seri-
ous bone of contention between
the U.S. and USSR and that neither
side is about to back down from
its position. They said that basic-
ally the Soviets want a settlement
imposed by the big powers while
the U.S. holds the view that a
settlement must be negotiated by
the parties of the conflict.
The annual "New Membership
Coffee" was held by the Temple
Solel Sisterhood last week at the
home of Mrs. Rubin Piha.
The purpose of the coffee was
to introduce newcomers to present
members and to familiarize them
with the workings of the Sister-
hood. Rabbi Robert Frazin and
Sisterhood president Mrs. Laurence
Hunter welcomed the guests, and
Rabbi Frazin described what the
temple has to offer to families.

Temple Solel was founded, the Sis-
terhood has grown from 20 mem-
bers to almost 300. It is both a
social and a fund-raising group,
and meets on a monthly basis.
This past year the Sisterhood
sponsored a square dance, a donor
program, an art auction and a

Israel In 1973...25th Anniversary Visit
s ,
Our third visit to Israel was dif-
ferent from our first two. There
are many reasons.
The most important difference
is due to the fact that we were in
Israel, and Jerusalem in particular,
during the week prior to the 25th
anniversary celebration on May
7th, and for five weeks thereafter.
It was a rare privilege and an
experience we will cherish the rest
of our lives.
Another difference, and this one
an exciting and emotional expe
rience. is the fact that the Russian
Aliyah is evident in all walks of
life. Even though thousands of
'"Olim Hadashim" (new Russian
Immigrants) are still pouring into
Israel, many more are denied per-
mission and are harassed because
of their desire to leave. We ex-
plored the miracle of the Russian
Aliyah in many ways. We shal)
write in great detail about these
two extraordinary historic events.
This introductory article to our
series is being written June 11 on
the plane as it wings its way across
the Mediterranean and Atlantic.

ers of the Jewish Floridian many

eration and we spent more than Tens of thousands of Arabs from
places we visited.
Because we stayed an entire
month in Jerusalem we were able
to go places there at leisure and
visit with many Israelis.
We had many unbelievable ex-
periences. Some of them were
pre-arranged, some of them just
happened ... we were lucky to be
in the right place at the right time.
But this happened so frequently
that luck alone cannot explain it.
It will take us months to review
all the material we have and write
the articles. We have 36 hours of
tape recordings, 20 hours of inter-
views in the Russian language with
more, than 20 new Russian immi-
grants. We have hundreds and
hundreds of pictures in color and
black and white. We have written
material, pamphlets, books, histor-
ical documents that we sent by
overseas mail which will take two
months more to arrive.
Some additional highlights will
include a visit to the Negev Uni-
versity in Beersheba and a com-
plete guided tour by the public
relations, director of the university
which was arranged for us by
Herbert Ben-Adi. This university
is being built close to the Soroka
Negev Hospital and will include
a medical school.
We also had a special tour and
visit at Boys Town, Jerusalem,
which is a junior and senior high
school under Orthodox auspices in
Israel that is supported by funds
from the United States and Can-
ada. This school, in addition to
academic and religious studies,
teaches electronics, carpentry,
printing, etc.
During a three-hour visit and
tour of Kfar Schwedi (Swedish
Village) for the mentally retarded
from 5 to 55, we interviewed the
executive director, head educator,
house mother and psychologist.
This institution is partially sup-
ported by B'nai Zion. This is one
place we can never forget.

half a day visiting and interview

Vve intend to write about our
re-visits to Yad Vashem Memorial,
Masada, the Kennedy Memorial
and the Jewish quarter in the Old
City which is now being rebuilt.
There is much more.
Following are several impres-
sions off the tops of our heads
while they are still fresh and with-
out referring to our notes.
The Sen impression we wish to
share is the enormous amount of
physical change, not only the enor-
mous building process going on in
the old and new cities of Jeru-
salem, but everywhere we went
Tel Aviv, Haifa, Beersheba and all
other areas. Office buildings and
apartment houses are going up,
roads being widened, nfw hotels
being built and older hotels are
in the process of being Renovated
and enlarged. /*
There is a greater number of
private ears crowding the roads.
This shows a tremendous amount
of mobility by private automobile
and is an index of improvement
in the standard of living.
Stores loaded with furniture,
kitchen utensils, refrigerators, tele-
vision sets and other appliances
are also filled with customers.
Banks and branches of banks
are on very block as well as res-
taurants, coffee houses, milk and
snack bars. We were told that no
eating place in Israel ever went
out of business and even more are
opening up.
Another impression is the sense
of pride in the country and the
going about of day-to-day activities
in confidence and without fear.
There is less fear and less talk
by the average Israeli about the
lack of peace and the threat of
war than there is here in the
United States.
To be sure there is concern, but
there is a sense of confidence in
the future, confidence that the na-
Gaza commute daily to Beersheba
and surrounding areas to work on
construction, in commerce and in
This confidence and lack of fear
is contagious. We walked the
streets in the New City of Jeru-
salem, late at night, alone, in
strange surroundings without the
slightest apprehension. We walked
the streets of East Jerusalem in
the Arab section, late at night in
deserted areas unfamiliar to us,
without the slightest bit of anxiety.
We had many lighter moments.

tion that has scarred Jews and
Christians from the time of the
Church Fathers, through the
Middle Ages, to the era of
Strober, who serves as consul-
tant on interreligious education
, for the American Jewish Commit-
tee, makes his charges in an
analysis that the AJC is distrib-
uting to religious and civic lead-
ers and others who would be par-
ticularly concerned with the issues
raised. _K is a sequel to a previous
analysis that he prepared about
the Broadway stage production of
"Jesus Christ Superstar."
Sfrober expressed particular
cojieern about the potential in-
fluence of the movie in view of
the fact it will probably be seen
by millions of people, in contrast
to the stage version, which
reached thousands, and also in
view of the more intense impact
of the film medium."
The National Jewish Commu-
nity Relations Advisory- Council, a
coordinating body of national
Jewish organizations and local
Jewish community relations coun
cils, has called the film "a singu-
larly damaging setback in the
struggle against the religious
sources of anti-Semitism."
Rabbi Marc H. Tanenbaum,
//AJC's national director of inter-
- religious affairs, in an introduc-
tion to the Strober analysis, noted
f that "'Jesus Christ Superstar'"
has received a 'G' rating, which

able Christian children of Sunday
school age will be exposed, in
most compelling fashion, to an
antiJewish presentation of the
gospel story without the guidance
of an accompanying parent."
Strober based his findings on
a comparison of the film with
the New Testament, which, he
pointed ont, was "the primary
source of information about
Jesus' life and death." He also
examined the printed text of
the original "rock opera," as
well as the printed text ac
companying the MCA record of
the film's sound track.
His comparison between the
film and the New Testament dealt
with five specific categories and
events related to the last days of
Jesus' life: the Priests, Pilate, the
Temple scene, Judas, and the Jew-
ish crowd.
The Priests. Strober pointed
out that the film portrayed the
Jewish priesthood as "satanically
evil, contemptuous, callous, sadis-
tic and bloodthirsty." Members
of the priesthood were "repre-
sented as sinister-looking, leering
personages, dressed in forbidding
black garb, with weird, onion-
shaped black hats," he said, and
"The two chief priests, Caiaphas
and Annas, speak in menacing or
bullying tones: the rest sound
like fools. None looks even re-
motely priestly, or like a com-
munity leader whom people could
accept as such; none sounds as if
he could be possibly acting in
good faith."
Strober cited three specific in-
stances in which, he said, the film
was at variance with the New
1. The film shows Caiaphas as
"full of arroaant contempt for
Jesus and for the people who ac-
claim him.1' According to the New
Testament, "the expression of
contempt is quite unwarranted,
since the .priests clearly took
Jesus most seriously."
2. The film implies the priests
were responsible for the execu-
tion of John the Baptist. In fact,
"the gospel accounts attribute
his death solely to King Herod."
3. In the film, the priests are
taxed by Judas with "having
beaten Jesus in the most brutal
manner." However, "there is no
shred of evidence that Jesus was
ever subjected to a purposeful,
savage beating by any of the
priests or at their order."
Pilate. "If the film weights
the scales against the priesthood
over and above what the New
Testament accounts warrant, it
lightens them beyond all the evi-
dence for the other chief agent
in the trial of Jesus the Ro-
man governor, Pontius Pilate,"
Strober declared.
"The very staging and costum-
ing make plain that Pilate is to
serve as a noble foil for the evil
priests. Whereas they are garbed
ominously in black, he comes on
in a gorgeous maroon costume,
with a wreath around his head.
Whereas they shout, he speaks
softly. His words and demeanor
bespeak reason, patience and com-
"The entire portrait of Pilate,"
Strober stated, "is designed to
minimize his role in Jesus' trial
and death, and thereby maximize
that of Jesus' Jewish antagonists.
It is wildly unhistorical, deriving
from the cliches of traditional
anti-Jewish Passion plays rather
than from the New Testament."
The Temple. "The Temple
sequence reveals a scene of
frenzy and chaos, corruption
and lewdness," Mr. Strober as-
serted. "The holy site is shown
populated by prostitutes, drug
pushers, and sellers of machine
gunspeople bizarre in dress
and comportment, with no
shred of humanity or dignity,
and with never a sign of reli-
gious feeling. The inappropriate
goings-on In the Temple which,
according to the gospels, Jesus
condemned are fantastically ex-
Judas. He receives inordi-
nate attention in the film, far in
excess of what he is given in New
Testament accounts, Strober said.
"It is undoubtedly significant,"
he adaed, "that in the film, as in
the Broadway opening, Judas is
played by a black man, and that
he is represented as a victim of
of several scenes in which first-
Jewish perfidy."
"Judas is also the focus of one
century and 20th-century ele-
ments are strangely mixed, sug-
gesting that the 'guilt' of the
Jews in Jesus' time somehow car-
ries over into the present," Stro-
ber continued. The episode in
which Judas is shown fleeing into
the desert, where tanks and low-
flying military aircraft threaten-
ingly bear down on him, "is not
hung on any Scriptural peg. It is
not clear whether the tanks and
planes are meant to symbolize
Roman might, the power of the
Jewish authorities, or perhaps
Judas' own conscience; but it
does not seem far-fetched to sus-
pect that the sequence is, among
other things, a caricature of the
supposed 'ruthless power' of mod-
ern Israel."
The Jewish Crowd. In con-
trast to the stage version, Strober
asserted, the film of "Jesus Christ
Superstar" is far more accusatory
of the Jewish crowd.
*1n the scenes depicting the
arrest of Jesus and his trial be-
fore Pilate," he said, "the re-
sponsibility for his fate, which
was earlier assigned to the
priests, is shifted to the Jewish
people. In a dramatic crescen-
do, the film now asserts a col-
lective Jewish guilt for the
In the stage version, Strober
pointed out, Caiaphas said to
Pilate, "We need him crucified
it's all you have to do." In the
film, however, "the crowd twice
repeats Caiaphas' words, and
much more is made of the mob's

Sixty-one new clients, a third of
whom were elderly, made up the
intake of Broward County's Jew-

is a plain decisior.. This (most
favored nation treatment) is an
idea in the interests of both (U.S.
and the Soviet Union)."
At that point aides urged
Brezhnev away before the JTA
could follow up with further
questions. Eariier in the day,
Leonid Zamyatin, spokesman for
the Brezhnev party, declared
"trade cannot be conducted on a
basis of discrimination." Other
Soviet officials questioned by
the JTA at the White House din-
ner responded with similar state-

try as traitors," he said. He called
Prof. Benjamin Levich. a Soviet
scientist who has applied for per-
mission to emigrate, a "louse" fo!
"spreading lies about us.'*
Among those who attended the
White House dinner were two
prominent members of the Amer-
ican Jewish community, Jacob
Stein and Max Fisher. They both
met briefly with Brezhnev and
later indicated optimism that the
Nixon-Brezhnev summit conference
may ultimately yield results bene-
ficial to Soviet Jewry. Stein said
he did not know of any meeting by
a Jewish group with Brezhnev.
Fisher, long a leader of the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations and Wei-
' fare Funds, said a meeting was
j "being worked for."
Meanwhile the president of
the Union of Orthodox Jewish
Congregations of American ex-
| pressed his "dismay" on June 21
that Jewish leaders attended the
White House state dinner for
Soviet Communist Party Secre-
tary Leonid I. Brezhnev.
In a letter to Jacob Stein, chair-
man of the Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American Jewish
Organizations who attended the
dinner, president Harold M. Jacobs
said "Jewish participation in wel-
coming a man who personifies
antagonism and animosity to Jewry-
today is an incalculable indignity.''
He said this was "all the more so
. when the head of American
Jewry's major umbrella organiza-
tion participates in such an event.
Jacobs said that by attending Stein
had struck a "blow to the interests
of the Jewish people and the cause
of unity in the Jewish community."
Stein was not available for com-
ment on June 21.

ironic is Brezhnev's own involve-
ment in the deviltries characteris-
tic of hh> Soviet' regime: "Watch-
ing him as he disported his

had to keep recalling what kind

imposed the hated "education tax"
to cripple Jewish emigration, and
moved away from it only under
worldwide pressure.
One may argue that some of this

that Brezhnev, like Nixon, has the
right to retreat from his earlier
positions. I. for one, not only wel-

If their realism has led them closer

then all to the good. But it is hard
to find in either of them the quality
one finds in the West German
chancellor, Willy Brandt, who has
far less of a power base but has
shown a moral sensitivity that sets
him apart from the others.
This is doubtless why young
Europeans are moved by Brandt,

color and vividness in him. and of
earthiness. He was on his best be-
! havior all through his visit, doubt-
| less to help his own cause, perhaps
' Nixon's, too.
And Nixon? He gained from
the Brezhnev visit a week's
breathing spell in which to func-
tion again in his best role, as
global negotiator. The success of
the Skylab mission helped him,
too, and he tried to use italong
with the global talksto give his
image a spaciousness which the
grubby underground details of
the Watergate story had stripped
away from him.
Even the joint vow of Nixon and
Brezhnev to discourage nuclear
warfare, which bodes well for the
world's futire. had a side aspect
as an aid to the President's claim
to legitimacy.
The next two weeks will be the
crucial ones in Nixon's struggle for
political survival. If he makes it,
the Brezhnev summit, whatever
else comes of it, will rank as an

Bourguiba's Peace
Moves Win Ground
Continued from Page 1
to Beirut last month.
While the Palestinian guerrilla
movement brushed off the idea, its
leadership is understood to have
shown intense interest in it after
prodding by King Faisal, of Saudi
Arabia, who supports the Bourgui-
ba move.
One of the two preconditions set
by Bourguiba for talks with the
Israelis was recognition of the na-
tional aspirations of the Palestin-
The other was the 1947 parti-
tion plan boundaries as a start-
ing point for territorial talks.
That is abviously unacceptable
to Israel but Bourguiba is under-
stood to be flexible on the point
He is said to envisage a meeting
between himself and Premier
Golda Meir to begin with or, if
that is not possible, talks on the
foreign ministerial level. Once the
first step has been taken, he ex-
pects to bring in the principal Arab
parties Egypt, Jordan and the
Palestinians. Bourguiba envisages
Tunisia playing a behind-the-scenes
role during the talks.
One stumbling block to the
initiative is the adamant attitude
of Libya against any peace moves
with Israel. Anotner is that Israel
is not likely to accent Tunisia as a
mediating country because it is an
Arab state committed to the Arab
cause. Bourguiba. who has many
Jewish friends, hopes this attitude
can be overcome.

A Pilgrimage To The Past
(SDtTOR'S-XOTE: Mr. Friedman Is
a m. of the public relations
ntaff of the United Jewish Appeal.
New York City. He traveled with tli>
Younir Leadership Pilgrimage to Po-
land in March of this year.)
The train from Warsaw to Cra-
cow shuttled along the tracks re-
lentlessly on a journey that would
take us to our final destination:
we were Jews on our way to
Auschwitz. In 1943 there was no
need to make the final leg of the
trip from Cracow to Auschwitz by I
bus, because the Germans had con-
sidered everything; the trains I
came directly to the gate of Ausch-
witz and ended in a "cul-de-sac" of
Today things are different. It i
was March, 1973, and we 35 young I
American Jews were seated in I
the first class cars of the train,
each examining his motives for
coming to this wasteland. The train
window revealed a monotonous
landscape of rainwashed and bar-
ren fields, lifeless in the greyish
afternoon. It was a landscape
which had been carved up many
times by many nations. But the
most tortured chapter in its his-
tory would always be associated
with Auschwitz.
And so we had come as Jews
to experience for ourselves and a
whole generation the inconceiv-
able: the loss of one-third of our
people. From the moment the idea
of a pilgrimage emerged, none of
us doubted that we had to go. It
was an imperative and we accept-
ed it.
It was the "why" that haunted |
us. Some with whom we shared
our plans threw up their hands in
hopeless incomprehension and de-
cided we were misochists; others
were only puzzled. "After all, it
is th 30th anniversary of the War-
saw Ghetto uprising and the holo-
caust," we told them. But within
us, we knew that an anniversary
was hardly the reason; rather, it
was the excuse.
Perhaps, like so many of the
survivors of that generation, we
wanted to purge ourselves of the
guilt of not having been born soon
enough to have experienced the
Holocaust first-hand. Collectively,
we understood that we must bear
witness and testify to our genera-
tion about the tragedy which un-
folded here.
We were all in our 30s, too young
to have understood then, but old
enough now to explore its signifi-
cance. As members of the Young
Leadership Cabinet of the United
Jewish Appeal, we all believed in
the future of Jewishness, but its
past often eluded us. We came
here to find history, but most of
all -- ourselves.
The journey to Auschwitz had
taken three days and an eternity.
It began with Warsaw. Warsaw
once the crown of Polish Jewry
and now empty of all but a few
thousand Jews. Our first visit was
to the monument honoring the
Warsaw Ghetto fighters, which
stands in a large open square sur-
rounded by manicured lawns and
trim hedges. This soil, hallowed by
Jewish blood, had been the battle-
ground ... not of life and death,
for the resistors vere past that. It
was a war waged in the names of
honor and revenge. No sign of this
struggle was evident: no rubble in
the streets, just new apartment
buildings whose foundations rest
on Jewish bones.
The monument is imposing and
monolithic. It is an idealized ren-
dering of the heroic group of ghet-
to fighters. Here we placed a sim
pie wreath and recited the tradi-
tional mourning prayers for the
But we knew instinctively that
this was not enough. Some other
gesture was needed, a gesture
which gave meaning to their death
and affirmed (he life they held so
"Oseh Shalom, (.May God Grant
Peace). And then in a burst of in-
Peace." And then in a burst of in-
spiration we sang the "Hatikvah," '
realizing for the first time that it I
was a prayer as well as Israel's j
national anthem.

their curtains at this strange group
of American Jews wearing yarmul-1
kas. Little children too small to
understand continued playing their
games, while teen-agers who would
never understand, sneered. All of!
them alternated between amaze-
ment and amusement.
Mila 18. Headquarters of the I
shetto fighters, and their last fu-:
tile battleground. It too has a
marker one that seemed more
appropriate. It is not massive or
overwhelming but imposing in its
simplicity. An uneven, austere rock
about five feet high, it sits atop
a mound of earth under which lies
the remnants of a building and
a people.
It lacks grandeur, but it is, I
think, a tribute that the ghetto
fighters would have preferred.
They did not see themselves as
heroes, but as sufferers. Jobs
whose agony consumed their pa-
tience with a relentless God, and
impelled them to fight back.
Two monuments. Nothing else
to remind one of the very exist-
ence of a ghetto. No rubble, no
bombed-out buildings. Why? Be-
cause "they" want us to forget.
But we cannot.
For Jews, all of Poland is one
great cemetery. One could say the
kaddish everywhere. For wherever
one walks his feet tread on Jewish
i bones.
Warsaw. Where once this city
included a population of nearly a I
million Jews, it now cannot sus-'
tain a few thousand. But in losing
its Jews, Warsaw has also lost its
very soul.
Jewish culture gave Warsaw a
special vitality. Today, its remains
are housed In a bare, drafty and
poorly lit building called the Jew-
ish Historic Institute. It houses 10
centuries of Jewish art and ar-
chives in Poland. Rare manu-
scripts, unpublished diaries, irre-
placeable historical material. All
turning to dust.
No one comes here anymore.
And if not for the few old people
who live out their somber days as
its caretakers and curators, the In-
stitute itself would turn to dust.
One old woman, who serves as the
curator of art, told us that her
chief aim in life is to catalog the
Jewish artistic works still remain-
ing in Poland. She has reached
only the fifth letter of the alpha-
bet. She is 80 years old.
The Jews of Poland live in the
past, if they live at all. They have
carried the burdens of suffering
too long. One is reminded of the
closing lines of King Lear: "The
oldest hath borne most; we that
are young shall never see so much,
nor live so long."
There was a Passover seder in
Warsaw this year, and, as tradi-
tion demands, the youngest pres-
ent asked the "Four Questions." In
Warsaw, the youngest was 64 years
But even among the aged, one
can find a few with souls that burn.
We met one such woman, a former
schoolteacher. In a defiant voice
she rebuked us: "Be proud, be
free, and always remember that
you are Jews." None of us will
ever forget her words or her tear-
ful embrace.
The last remaining synagogue
in Warsaw was vandalized early
in March and the cover of the Holy
Ark was stolen. Now a dirty sheet
covers an ark empty of her Torah
scrolls. The synagogue is cold and
drafty and only Yom Kippur, the
Day of Atonement, sees it filled
to capacity.
An adjoining building contains a
small room which serves as the
synagogue during the winter, and
a kosher canteen serving hot meals
to a handful of elderly Jews. The
building is adorned with a freshly
chalked swastika. Anti-Semitism is
| not dead in Poland, although most
of its Jews are.
It is at the Jewish cemetery in
Warsaw that one feels the greatest
sense of loss. For here are buried
an estimated two million Jews and
500 years of Jewish history.
Each tombstone is a chapter of
that history, and we saw it crum-
bling before our eyes. Standing in
the cold rain in the cemetery, it
occurred to me that we were per-
haps the last Jews who would ever
come to mourn and say Kaddish
The two million here are watch-
ed by a single caretaker. He had
waited, it seemed, 30 years or
2.000 for our arrival. He be-
seiged us with stories of the dead.
Anecdotes about the living. His
words poured forth like a torrent.
He led us down paths of broken
and twisted stones as he pointed
out the graves of Zamenhof, the
ghetto fighters, rabbis, teachers,
We stopped at the graves of the
poets Peretz and Anski where this
little, ageless man intoned in a
voice which cannot be forgotten,
the prayers for the dead. And we
read aloud in this cemetery, Per-
etz's poem, which begins with the
line: "Think not the world is a
derelict waste." Defiance is most
necessary, when it is unthinkable.
The old Jew, that Elijah with
the burning eyes, did not want us
to leave. Too many stories were
left untold, too many lives and
deaths unremembered. But time
and circumstances pulled us to
our appointment with destiny
Auschwitz is not far from the
city of Cracow, once home to
60.000 Jews. It too had a ghetto
and its Jews were also extermi-
nated. There are a few hundred
Jews remaining in the city. Most
of their relatives are in Israel;
those young people left have in-
termarried, much to their par-
ents' dismay.
The current head of the Jewish
community told us with great sad-
ness: "We continue to maintain
two synagogues which are active;
we have a kosher canteen where
we shrve meals free of charge, and
we serve meals free of charge, and
Thus we have everything a Jew
needs. We only lack people."
That is the great tragedy of
Polish Jewry.
The 500-year-old Remu syna-
gogue in Cracow testifies to what
once was. This small structure is
r.amed after Rabbi Moshe Isserless,
one of the great Jewish scholars of
the 16th century. Used by the
Nazis as a stable, it has managed
to survive.
It was there that we chose to
pray. We dressed in prayer shawls
and phylacteries. None of us had
ever prayed with greater fervor
and intensity. Where others would
defile, we would consecrate; where
others would mouth obscenities,
I we would worship.
Traditionally, every service con-
! eludes with the "Aleinu." We sang
it that morning filled with emo-
tion, knowing that it was not the
I end to our prayers, but the begin-
ning. And we understood its mean-
! ing: "(He) has not made us like
i the nations of the world and has
not placed us in the families of the
earth; who has not designed our
destiny to be like theirs, nor our
lot like that of all their multitude."
Prayer can be an act of love, but
on that morning, it was an act of
defiance. Defiance against the hor-
| rors of Auschwitz which we knew
> would follow.
Appropriately, the sky was grey
and a bone chilling rain was fall-
ing as we entered Auschwitz.
All is as it was. The barbed
wire, the barracks, the crematoria.
That mockery of a sign "Arbeit
Macht Frei," "Work makes (one)
free" glared at us at the entrance
of the camp just as it had 30 years
before at the unhappy people go-
: ing to their deaths. We knew
, then and believed that Auschwitz
really existed. Once seen, it is un-
, derstood even less. Why or how
j it could have existed perplexed us
! even more than before.
One of the barracks at Ausch-
witz, dedicated to the Jews, con-
tains historical material and horri-

There is no warmth, no life at

through our warm clothes, stayed
with us for days. The earth, mixed
with stones, makes walking diffi-

And during the whole of our
visit to this house of horror, train
whistles blew. Was it a stage ef-
fact, or an echo of the thousands
of trains that brought Jews here
to their death? The sound hung in
the air a grim reminder of
those trains with their human car-
go. And yet. there were no tracks
to be seen. No trains in the dis-

Jews slaughtered at this horrible

the sense of loss? Not just a
brother, a mother or a son, but a
whole generation lost to us. We
understood then the line from
Nelly Sachs' poem, "We are gar-
deners without any flowers."
The generation of Jews whose
lives were snuffed out left too
pitiful a trace even at Ausch-
witz. We would remember and re-
mind others of mankind's greatest
atrocity. Collectively we signed the
visitors' book at Auschwitz with
the following inscription:

three years ago, a torn and beaten
upmbol of brutality as only the hu-
man can devise it.
Arnold Feiner is that man.
-{fcadential-wise, he is impressive
with a bachelor's degree in sociol-
ogy psychology and a master's in
psychiatric social work.
Currently engaged in coordinat-
ing the Drug Dependency Out-
patient Program at the VA Hos-
pital in Miami, which entails the
anpervision of a staff of 15 serving
50 patients, most of whom are Viet-
ham veterans who are on meth-
adonc treatment, he is also on the
clinical faculty of the Barry Col-
lege graduate school and Florida
(International University and, in
addition to teaching, acts as super-
visor to students in the field.
As if these chores were not
enough, he was recently elected
president of Miramar's Temple Is-
rael which was an enchanting de-
velopment so far as Rabbi Drazin
was concerned because, for the
fiast time in his rabbinate, he can
say he is older than his top offi-
cial. At 30, in fact, Arnie Feiner
may well be the youngest pres-
ident in history, period.
But these worldly achievements
and distinctions do not tell the
whole story. Arnold Feiner is a
man motivated in all he does bv
Maimonides' 8th rung. He is an
intensely devout and deeply reli-
gious man who feels that Judaism
rvides the stability and guidance
his personal and professional
life so necessary to accomplishing
his goals, which arc many. Above
all. he wants to help his fellow
man help himself, to make self-
;enance possible to as many as
le orthodox Brooklyn house-
into which he was born ac-
its for much of Arnie's devo-
to things Judaic. The decision
to elect social work over the rabbi-
nate was a difficult one for the
;ounu man, and even now he is
tot sure what process he used to
roeolve the conflict. He has, how-
ever, been able to draw from both
worlds because he acts as surrogate
rabbi or cantor in either's absence.
The social worker-rabbi did not
Fourth of July and apple pie as
one of the great American
values." Stating that one has a
right to dignity both in life and
in death, he asks whether "death,
properly speaking, is a 'right?'"
Suicide, he says, is forbidden
both by religious and temporal
law, "proscribed because Western
culture has long recognized that
man's life is not his own to dispose
of at will, nor is man ever called
upon to determine whether life
is worth living."
Contending that even the most
sophisticated definitions of death,
including the new definition
"brain death," are constantly be-
ing debated by the medical profes-
sion, Rabbi Bleich argues that "as
long as life is present the decision
to terminate such life is beyond
the competence of man."
Quite pragmatically, he says, "a
decision not to prolong life means
precluding the application of some
new advance in therapeutics to se-
termine that it is beneficial for
that life to be terminated."
All human life, he says, is of
inestimable value.
Rabbi Bleich asks "if the co-
matose may be caused to 'die
with dignity,' what of the men-
tally deranged and the feeble-
minded incapable of 'meaning-
ful' human activity? Withdrawal
of treatment leads directly to
overt acts of euthanasia; from
While caring for a patient "in

upon his family, the medical prac-
titioner and hospital facilities, he
says, "we must recognize that the
preservation of any value demands

on guard against self-interest

ing self-serving motives to find ex-

In his "spare time" he was ac-
tive in Jewish Big Brothers and
actually sat on its board. The post-
graduation years found him em-
ployed as a psychiatric social work-
er at the Brooklyn VA Hospital,
followed by a stint as coordinator
of the Jewish Youth Council of
Greater Miami and a teenage
supervisor at the YM-YWHA.
Today, in addition to his drug
clinic and temple responsibilities,
he and wife, Lisa, are into a com-
mercial venture they have called
A & L Enterprises. The firm, with
tentacles reaching out to Australia,
Canada, Puerto Rico and the Vir-
gin Islands, is concerned with the
marketing of over 700 diversified
products including television sets
and vitamins.
And what will the Feiners do
with all that money? "What I
would like to be more than any-
thing else is a philanthropist."
Arnie explains, "and money is
the name of that game." It is char-
acteristic that the end result of
any Feiner exercise is an avowed
preoccupation with others.
Politics? Yes, indeed. The po-
litical arena holds perhaps the
ultimate challenge for Arnold
Feiner and, although he admits to
a willingness to begin on the local
level, don't be surprised if 1996
sees the inauguration of the first
Jewish president of this country.
For now, Arnie plans to take a
speed-reading course because there
is so much more to be learned and
so little time in which to do it.
Just a recitation of how the Feiner
time is spent is enough to precip-
itate collapse! And yet there is al-
ways the extra half hour to be
squeezed out in the middle of the
night as he tends the perpetually
sick dog and gives her one more

Prize Winning Book
YANKEL THE FOOL. Stories and Pictures by Shan Ellentuck.
Doubleday and Company. New York. 103 Pages. $4.95.
In the beloved tradition of Jewish folklore comes a delightful
book, "Yankel the Fool," by Shan Ellentuck, who is also the
illustrator. Gaily written and recalled with pleasure is the old
folk tale of Yankel, the schlimazel, the "sad sack," the fool, whose
adventures took him from the role of the village idiot to the role
of the famous wonder-working rabbi's son-in-law.
Yankel was a failure in everythingeven as a beggar and a
thief. All his adventures were misadventures. But like all good
folk tales, the story ends happily. Yankel's failure to rob the
beloved wonder-working rabbi becomes a stroke of good luck,
and it changed the course of his life. He became what we call
today a VIP, a man of importance and wisdom, who always gave
the right answers by following a few simple rules the wise old
rabbi taught him.
There is an even happier endingYankel married the beau-
tiful daughter of the rabbi, as well. Of course, he had a little help
from the old rabbi and a guardian angel or two, but that is really
not important. Yankel wound up, as one might say, taking home
the cake, frosting and all.
Anyhow, it's a charming book, simply and cleverly illustrated.
It is really a book for all ages to chuckle over and enjoy.

What is a Mitzvah dance?
A Mitzvah dance, especially as
this custom developed in the 16th
century, was a dance which took
place at a wedding. A group of
men usually danced with the bride-
groom while a group of women
danced with the bride. In later
times, men came to dance with the
bride by holding a handkerchief
between them as a symbol of sep-
aration of the sexes.
The term Mitzvah dance implies
that there is an obligation to be
involved in a dance at a wedding.
This obligation is already men-
tioned in the Talmud (Ketubut
16B) where the rabbis discuss a
variety of ways in which to fulfill
this obligation.
Distinguished rabbis of the Tal-
mudic period described their own
individual way of dancing 'in the
presence of the bride." The gen-
eral idea is that there is an obli-
gation on the part of the commu-
nity, especially those attending the
wedding, to enhance the festivities
with an air of joy.
This is an obligation which a
man owes his fellow man since
there is very little joy in being
alone and secluded.
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 fists 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 (5:14) 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?
Rabbinic commentaries derive a
general principle in establishing
the occurrence of death from the
Talmud (Yoma 85a) as being the
cessation of respiration. Sources
later add the absence of a heart
beat as a necessary Dut not abso-
lutely determining criteria (Cha-
tham Sofer, Yoreh De'ah. Responsa
338) requiring both pulse beat
and heart beat to be absent in
order to establish the fact of
There has alo been an opinion
that blood pressure should be
absent in order to establish the
demise of the individual (Dr.
Jacob Levy, quoted in Asya.
Shebat 5731). Care must bo taken
as to what is at issue in establish-
ing the fact of death, (e.g.. the per-
mission to excise the heart for
transplant; the permission for
burial: the prohibition of a priest
(Kohen) from coming into contact
with the individual, the respon-
sibility of the doctor and the fam-
ily to continue efforts to revive
the patient).
Some Rabbinic authorities re
quire a minimum time to expire
after the life signs are missinR
before permitting burial (at least
a half-hour). Whatever the case
may be, as long as there is some
hope of reviving life, every effort
must be made to attempt doing so.
In specific cases one should not
adopt a general rule but make a
specific determination for each
regard either as a loss or a risk.

Caribbean Sea
Attractive low seasonal rates
starting at a minimum of only
$285 will go into effect June 29
through December 7 for the 10-
day cruise program of Holland
America's S.S. Nieuw Amsterdam
sailing from Port Everglades,
Florida, according to the com-
The rates, which start at $285,
range upward to $895 for outside
deluxe cabins. These prices in-
clude air-conditioned shipboard
accommodations, all meals, en-
tertainment and other extras. Hol-
land America's unique policy of
"no gratuities required" also ap-
plies to all of these cruises.
Each of the Nieuw Amster-
dam's 11 remaining cruises for
this season are identical in that
they all visit the same ports of
call. These include Willemstad.
Curacao: La Guaira (for Caracas),
Venezuela; St George's, Grenada;
Basse Terre and Pointe-a-Pitre on
Guadeloupe: and Charlotte Ama-
lie, St. Thomas. Departure dates
for the cruises are June 29; July
27; August 6 and 17: October 5,
15 and 26: November 5, 16 and
26; and December 7.
The exceptions to this series of
10-day cruises are three eight-
day ones which depart on July 9
and 18 and September 26. These
will all call at the ports of Char-
lotte Amalie. St. Thomas: Philips-
burg. St. Maarten: and San Juan,
Puerto Rico. Rates on these
cruises start at S225 and range to
a maxipium of $715.
A cruise to the Caribbean today
(or anywhere else for that mat-
ter) means one of the last stands
of the old-lime art of pampering
that has long been forgotten on
land. On the Nieuw Amsterdam.
the "treatment" starts immediate-
ly after the ship has sailed. One
rejoices at unpacking all his suit-
cases, hanging up his clothes as
in a hotel, and then storing his
bags away lor the next 10 days.
A typical day at sea begins with
breakfast in your cabin (if you
wish I followed by a leisurely
reading of the ship's daily pro-
gram showing the events sched-
uled for the day. Next comes the
great responsibility of actually
having to decide what to do. And
the selection is enormous: toning
up with morning exorcises, prac-
ticing golf shots under the watch-
ful eyes of a pro. playing table
tennis, taking a dip in the out-
door pool, sunbathing, shooting
trap or learning the latest dance
steps in the morning so that ..ou
can practice them at night in the
Ritz Carlton Cafe or the Stuy-
vesant Cafe.
On the Nieuw Amsterdam there
also is a fully-equipped gym, an
indoor swimming pool, Turkish
baths and massage rooms. Chess
and bridge games flourish in the
lounges. If you wish, you can im-
prove your bridge game by at-
tending lectures by a "Travel
with Goren" expert. Or you can
simply rest in a deck chair, take
a walk around deckor best of
all. just relax and meet some of
jour fellow passengers.
Then, one has to decide whether
to have lunch down in the cool
dining room or up on the sunny
deck. Next more decisions -
whether to laze quietly and look
at the sea. or jump up for some
sports or another swimor may-
be a movie. Then a delicious tea,
followed by a lively chat on deck,
waiting for the swift sunset to
occur. Next, a long-drawn-out
bath followed by dressing up in
one's brightest clothes for din-
ner. While there will be formal
evenings, such as the special Cap-
tain's Welcome Aboard Party and
the farewell gala, the stress is on
Of course, one of the main at-
tractions of cruising on the Nieuw
Amsterdam is the cuisine. When
the gong sounds for dinner, a
great event is in the making.
You'll be presented with course
after course of delectables from
one of the finest restaurants
afloat. All prepared by Holland
America's fine chefs who are
members of the Confrerie de la
Chaine des Rotisseurs, world-
famous gastronomical association.
Following dinner there is a
show in the Grand Hall by Euro
pean and American artists of
stage and television with lots of
laughts. spoofing and sophisticat-
ed doings and dancing till the late
hours. Finally, a midnight buffet
officially closes the evening. But
for the "night owls" who hate to
go to bed. the Jungle Bar opens
up. There is music and the party
goes on. often until the wee hours
of the morning. But before bed-
time don't forget that stroll
around the deck to breathe in
the pure air of the sea and watch
those blinking stars.
Another reason that passengers
find these 10-day cruises of the
Nieuw Amsterdam fascinating are
the port* of call. They enable you
to sample a little bit of Holland,
Spain. England, France and Den-
mark without traveling all the
way to Europe to do so.
For example, the first sOp
after leaving Port Everglades is
Curacao where the Nieuw Am-
sterdam ducks at Willemstad. the
capital, which is divided into two
parts by Santa Anna Bay. In the
city's Punda section, you'll find
government buildings and banks
as well as throngs of shoppers
strolling the wide malls, pausing
at international shops, or sipping
drinks in palm-lined sidewalk
cafes. In the other section of
town, called Otrabanda. are more
shops. All of Willemstad is made
more interesting and colorful by
its tall, authentic 17th century
pastel-colored buildings as well as
the Dutch-styled houses, clean in
their little green gardens.
At the city's Floating Market
boats from "enezuela, only 27
miles away, tie up laden with
fruits and vegetables. Close by is
the Queen Emma pontoon bridge
which opens up to let ocean-going
ships pass through the middle of
town. Other interesting sights to
see are the Mikve Israel Syna-
gogue, the oldest one in the West-
ern Hemisphere, and Fort Am-
sterdam with the Governor's
House, whether you choose to
take advantage of the low prices
in the city on a shopping spree
or just relax, Willemstad is

phere of the Netherlands set in

city is separated into two distinct

feller Center of Venezuelaan
imposing group of buildings cul-
minating in two 32-story towers.
And the city's shops are com-
parable to New York's Fifth Ave-
nue. But Caracas is not all ultra-
modern. In the old section you
can visit Simon Bolivar's home
where this freedom fighter was
born and the National Pantheon,
his tomb. Also not to be missed is
the fantastic cable car ride up to
the mountain range surrounding
the city. You may find yourself
engulfed in the low clouds at the
top and the ride down is thrilling,
with a marvelous view of the city.
The cruise next calls at Gre-
nada, southernmost of the Wind-
ward Islands, which is oval in
shape with a spine of volcanic
mountains Its primary crops are
cocoa, nutmeg and mace which is
why the island is often referred
to as The Spice Island of the
West." Grenada is a photog-
rapher's delight and practically
any trip into its lush, mountain-
ous interior with its swift, bub-
bling streams is scenically re-
warding. Also quite beautiful are
the numerous smaller islands and
cays that adjoin it.
Our port of call is St. George's,
Grenada's capital, which rises in
terraces around its harbor, mak-
ing it one of the most picturesque
of the West Indian ports. A walk
along Wharf Street gives the vis-
itor a revealing glimpse of West
Indies trade as reflected by the
busy waterfront and you'll also
want U see Market Square. Build-
ings of interest include the
Anglican Church, York House and
the old Gregorian buildings on
the Carenage. Exploring the bat-
tlements of Fort George, Fort
Frederick and Old Fort gives or.e
an interesting look into the is-
land's history.
Plan to visit Grand Anse Beach,
perhaps the island's most notable
tourist attraction, which is among
the most spectacular beaches in
the Caribbean. It stretches for
two palm-fringed miles and offers
safe swimming in a setting that
is almost dream-like.
Guadeloupe is next on the
Nieuw Amsterdam's itinerary
where the ship arrives at Basse-
Terre for a short call to enable
overland tour participants to get
off. This town is an interesting
study of the past, with beautiful
parks, historic buildings, a 17th
century church and a fort called
Richepance. Although known as
the "Emerald Isle of the Carib-
bean." Guadeloupe is actually
two separate islands divided by
a narrow four-mile strait called
the Riviere Salee. The Guadeloupe
section is a lush, mountainous
region dominated by a volcano
called Soufriere. The eastern por-
tion, called Grande-Terre, is some-
what less rugged and is the site
of our second port of call, Pointe-
As in most Caribbean cities.
Pointe-a-Pitre's churches and gov-
ernment buildings yield valuable
insight into the island's past.
Among the more notable of these
are The Court of Law. Museum,
and the St. Pierre and St. Paul
Church. Outside of the city,
Guadeloupe is girded by a shore-
line roadway which offers spec-
tacular seascapes. The region sur-
rounding Soufriere offers many
fine views complete with racing
mountain torrents, hot springs
and dense rain forests. Nearby
Trois Rivieres and its "Valley of
the Ancient Caribes" is a treasury
of Carib Indian art. On Grande-
Terre. Le Moule Beach has carved
its way into an old cemetrry
where one can see petrified
skulls outlined in the seaward
rocks. Cosier and La Pergola are
beaches close to Pointe-a-Pitre.
Next you arrive in St. Thomas,
the island known as the "shop-
ping paradise of the Western
Hemisphere." Leaving the pier in
Charlotte Amalie, you can drive
to Bluebeard's Castle, once a
fortress, now a hotel. Here you
can see the tower, carefully
rest red according to the original
plans. Leaving Bluebeards, you
can continue up Mafolie Hill to
Drake's Seat, a lookout point
which gives you a lovely view of
Magens Bay and out across Sir
Francis Drake Channel to the
many American and British
Virgin Islands nearby.
Then it's on to Mountain Top
Hotel where you can sample the
"speciality of the house"their
world-famous banana daiquiri.
Charlotte Amalie's shopping area
is next. It is difficult to mention
the many types of bargains avail-
able hereand most of them at
duty-free prices. And, don't for-
getcustoms still allow an extra
$100 of duty-free purchases in
this port and you can bring one
full gallon of "spirits" back duty-
free as well.
Although St. Thomas is the last
port of call, the ad' enture is not
over yet. There are several more
days and nights at seatime
reminisce and absorb what h
been seen and to exchange
periences with fellow passeng
and new friends before return
to Port Everglades.

Hitler Without the Hand-Wringing
- >
Bis with elation that we write of a rare book,
*The Holocaust," by Nora Levin (Schocken
Books. S6.95). It is a monumental volume in
more than its size, 768 pages. It is a rarity be-
CMse the author has synthesized years of re-
search and mountains of material into a very
readable tome. As history it cannot be faulted,
and it is as su.spenseful as a detective story' even
though the end is weil known. The author has
written with lucidity and although she depicts
the facts dispassionately, one feels the underly-
ing emotion.
Nora Levin teaches history at Gratz College.
She covers the destruction of European Jewry
from 1933 to 1945 without indulging in the hor-
rors of the crematoria and the gas chambers. The
opening four chapters include "The Past is Pro-
logue."' a biographical sketch of Hitler and his
principal minions and their rise to power, and
"The Apparatus of Terror." These chapters pro-
vide the reader with an understanding of Nazi-
dom, the problems of German Jewry and their
strug-.'e to leave up to the time of the final
The Warsaw Ghetto, the resistance, and
the deportations in every country ta*en over by
the Nazi hordes are chronicled. While the fore-
going is the principal focus of the book, one
learns of what the English, the U.S.A. and other
democratic nations did or failed to do. Alfred
Morse's "While Six Million Died" and Henry
Feingold's scholarly account of the State Depart-
ment's and F.D.R.'s perfidy and hypocrisy are
augmented by some additional material pre-
sented by Nora Levin.
She never permitted her pen to stray into
polemics, maudlin hand-wringing or exaggera-
tions.. She is a capable coiner of phrases. Her
task was to present facts and explications and
hypotheses where necessary. She fulfilled her
assignment with extraordinary success. She deci-
mates the absurdities of those who assert that
there was "a complicity between assassin and
victim." She has facilitated an understanding of
the German mentality from the time of Bismark,
conditioned by European anti-Semitism, until to-
day. We fear that the German have not yet been
cured of "the myth-forming process that has
tended to repress national responsibility for
wrong turns and errors."
with a multi-lingual population,
a mime who expresses himself
solely in the universal language
is the ideal performer. In many
ways, he can be compared with
the Charlie Chaplin of the si-
lent screen whose visual inter-
pretation caught the fancy of
people everywhere and was un-
derstood even by the most primi-
tive civilization.
Marceau observes that the Rus-
sians have forgotten to laugh and
only gradually return to the en-
joyment of life, an enjoyment
expressed today at the circus in
Moscow with its multitude of
brilliant clowns. He has been a
guest in the Soviet capital and
is scheduled to return this fall
to tickle once more the funny-
bone of our newly won friends.

America who were unable to
catch a "live" performance of

How Religion 'Cured' Sculptor's Ills
JACQUES Lipchitz, one of the world's great
sculptors, who has just oacs<>d awav "'as in-
teresting not only as an artist but as a Jew.
Schmaryahu Levin said some Jews are Bar
Mitzvah at 60. not at 13. Maybe Lipchitz was Bar
Mitzvah a little later at 65. He said that his
father once told him that a life is built like a
hou.- e brick by brick.
Perhaps we might change the metaphor by
saying th3j a life is like a sculptured piece of
stone. Our lives arc sculptured by different
experiences. For instance, Lipchitz's father didn't
want his son to be a sculptor. "Jacques.'' he
said, "be an engineer." But Jacques wanted to be
a sculptor and his mother secretly sent him to
Paris to an art school. He became a sculptor.
But a life is more than a vocation. Jacques
Lipchitz had been an indifferent Jew most of his
life. Then at 65. 15 years ago, he developed can-
cer. Ke began to think of religion. He immersed
himself in Hasidism, and he later said that he
had been cured by the Lubavitchcr Rebbe.
We doubt very much that Rabbi Schnecrson
would profess to have cured Lipchitz of his can-
cer, but it suffices that Lipchitz recovered and
that he attributed his recovery to the Luba-
Thus, the experience with sickness helped
to sculpt the Jewish side, which had been reces-
sive. Lipchitz the sculptor became Lipchitz, the
Hasidic sculptor.
There is something of a paradox here, for
the Torah forbids the making of graven images.
To encourage image-making in that day was
to encourage idolatry. Today man has advanced
in that respect. While people continue to wor-
ship false gods, the danger of sculpture leading
to idolatry is remote. Besides Lipchitz was an
abstract artist. His figures are geometrical, not

Just What Should a Cop on the Beat Have ?

BVEN those people who get
jittery over glib use of the
currently popular cry for "law-
and-order" recognize the fact
that most communities need
more police officers. But when
folks who have studied carefully
the obvious need for more black
and Puerto Rican patrolmen
especially in areas of concentra-
tion of these groups appeal
for stronger efforts to recruit n>J-
nority-member police, the fire-
works of public controversy ex-
plode with a bang.
At the storm center of the con-
troversy, U.S. District Judge
Charles E. Wyzanski, Jr., made
a heroic effort to break the bias
of the Civil Service Commission
and to help open the doors for
black and Puerto Rican appli-
cants. Partly because of garbled
reporting, partly because of dis-
enchantment with the civil rights
movement, some of the judge's
long time admirers ungenerously
and mistakingly concluded that
he was wrong.
One of Judge Wyxanski's ex-
amples of reasoning might prof-
itably be noted by all genuinely
interested in the abrasive issue:
"To be .a policeman, one need
not know Keat's 'Ode to a Night-
ingale." No doubt, appropriate
tests should be in part verbal.
v__ Israeli Brains are Pitted
Against That Extensive Arab Brawn
LJA1FA It can be useful and illuminating to see how we look
through the eyes of the enemy. Sometimes such a view can help
us judge ourselves objevtively.
Hence it is of more than passing interest to review an article writ-
ten by Dr. A. B. Zahlan, professor of physics at the American Univer-
sity in Beirut, which appeared in the pro-Arab publication, "Journal of
Palestine Studies," not long ago. Dr. Zahlan deals with "The Science
and Technology Gap in the Arab-Israel Conflict."
First, he establishes a principle which to us may seem axiomatic,
though obviously it needs restatement for the Arab world: Science is
a key element in economic development, in technological change and
in military power. How can we judge scientific output? There are
many ways; he cites one:
The number of scientific papers and books published by a coun-
try's scientists and technologists. Here he finds the gap very broad
indeed. The Israel output (population, three million) is about 2.4
times greater than the output of the entire Arab world (population,
126 million). Or in terms of comparison with one of the larger coun-
tries the Israel output is four times the Egyptian, though Egypt's
population is 12 times that of Israel.
There is a natural carry-over to industry' Our Arab observer points
out that in Israel instruction in electronics and electrical engineering
has reached such an advanced stage that a vast new science-based
industry has been established, serving not only the defense estab-
lishment, but the whole economy. In the Arab world, he notes sorrow-
fully, the best that can be done is "an effort to assemble radio or
television sets."
Dr. Zahktn goes on to give many other examples, in various
fields. It's not a matter of money, he says. Even a poor nation can
keep in touch with technological and scientific achievement else-
where, but the nation must have an understanding and a will to
this end. These are lacking in the Arab states.
It is fatal to rely on sheer weight of numbers alone, as the
Arabs have done. Zahlan quotes from a Technion pamphlet of 1956
on the subject of "Israeli Brains versus Arab Brawn."
He comes to the sad conclusion that though the Arab world has
a population of 123 million and immense financial and natural re-
sources, there is no indication that a single Arab state is committed
to the kind of pol'cy in science
and technology which could of-
fer any hope of success.
This, in digest, is how one in-
telligent Arab assays the situa-
tion from a long range perspec-
tive. His views could well serve
as reminder to the Israelis, too,
not to alter their policy. If any-
thing, support for technology
and science should be increased
to provide greater assurance of
the nation's survival.
It should be made clear that
Israel does not exist for tech-
nology alone. It is concerned
with the liberal arts and the hu-
manistic values of life. But it
should bo obvious that the engi-
neers and scientists help provide
the security in which it can de-
velop for the broader cultural as-
pects of a civilized existence.

But appropriate tests would also
seek, and not necessarily by
written examination, to discover
how effective a policeman was
as an embodiment of authority,
as a community worker charged
with mediating and counseling
functions of a patrolman, as a
mature individual restraining
and simultaneously educating
young or unstable membors of
the community."
