to be singled out for the important
duties entailed in being a member
of the Young Leadership Cabinet.
"We are expecting, and with con-

from Mr. Baer," Mr. Pollack said.
"He has shown the level of inspir-
ed commitment to his people that
has come to be the trademark of
the Young Leadership Cabinet, and
we welcome him as a new and
valued member.
"The coming year will be one in
which Mr. Baer and others like
him will be instrumental in carry-

services for new immigrants in
Israel, and for alleviating the cruel-
ly aggravated human needs in Is-
rael resulting from the traumatic
upheaval of the Yom Kiaour War."
Mr. Baer is one of a select group
of the 1973 Greater Hollywood

Paris Mag's
POW Story
Raises Ire
raeli Embassy here has strongly
contested a French journalist's
account in a recent "Paris
Match" article in which he at-
tested to the "good treatment
and condition" of Israeli POWs
in Syria.
In the December edition of the
weekly magazine, Pierre Demeron
said he interviewed seven Israeli
POWs in Syria and found them
in "good condition." The article
was accompanied by photographs
of the seven men.
IN THIS week's edition of
"Paris Match," Israeli Embassy
Consul Ephraim Tari argues that
an interview with seven prison
ers "obviously cannot diminish
the dramatic reality of every
thing that has gone before."
Tari cites several instances of
Syrian brutality towards Israeli
POWs. He says Israel has inform-

the June, 1967 war as a result of which Israel occupied aU
of the Sinai to the Suez Canal and south along the Gulf of
Suez to Sharm el-Sheikh. Her land boundaries, with a length
of 1,053 km., narrowed to its minutest point 8 miles be-

will she be now?

Award to Gov. Askew
We applaud the Anti-Defamation League's choice of
Gov. Reubin Askew for its Leonard L. Abess Human Rela-
tions Award.
Those who have not had the opportunity of meeting
the governor are doubly confirmed in what most Floridians
know about him.
In a world where politics and the politician have sunk
to new lows of skullduggery, Gov. Askew has raised poli-
tics and the politician into the esteemed hall of service that
Socrates envisioned for both.
The governor is a philosopher-king in every sense of
the wordan elitist among the wise who brings his wisdom
to bear on the problems of every man every day.
With Gov. Askew in Tallahassee, this state has been
permitted a breath of fresh air and a sense of pride in their
chief executive who can and does serve them as a model
The ADL's citation to the governor declares that "he
has provided forthright and positive leadership on human
rights issues of vital importance to all."
We heartily agree.
Meals for the Poor
There are many bitter Ironies in any community. Mi-
ami Beach suffers a particularly brutal one.
The playground of the world, the city of affluence also
incorporates South Beach, where some of the most
wretched, poverty-stricken citizens of the nation live out
their senior years in hunger and privation.
Now, the Greater Miami Jewish Federation in conjunc-
tion with the United Fund of Dade County has moved to
ameliorate this anomaly.
Their new nutrition program which will provide free-of-
charge a hot meal each day to elderly residents who would
otherwise go hungry, is a boon and a first step against this
terrible human bliaht.
The Federation program, to be implemented by the
Jewish Vocational Service, will provide 940 kosher meals
daily as a collateral program to a similar setup being insti-
tuted for Spanish-speaking indigents in our community's
"Little Havanas."
For those in need, JVS headauarters for these meals
in Miami Beach is at 920 Alton Rd.
No one imagines that this will be the answer to indi-
gence among the seniors of South Beach. But at least it
demonstrates that we care. And that is as good a place
to start as any.
Too Soon to Tell
What has Dr. Henry Kissinger accomplished? That de-
pends upon what was said and done in those unwritten or
written but unpublished agreements between Israel and
It also depends upon the extent to which the Unned
States is prepared to see that Egypt lives up to her word.
In both instances, there are flies in the ointment.
If the Israelis were forced to make concessions not
only on Suez but also Golan, the West Bank, Jerusalem and
Sharm el-Sheikh, then we doubt the enduring quality of
his accomplishment.
If Dr. Kissinger has put the U.S. into a military alli-
ance with Israel to assure Egypt's compliance, then we
fear not only for America's word (it failed before according
to the terms of the 1950 Tripatite Agreement) but also for
the temper of the American people, who are in no mood
for new secret international entanglements.
As of now, it is too early to applaud either Dr. Kis-
singer or his peace. We applauded too soon and too enthu-
siastically in Vietnam. Events have since demonstrated
that premature assessments of success are more likely than
not disappointing.
Hurryin9 Henry's Watergate
T IS inconceivable that a jointly
<"* coordinated Egyptian-Syrian
war against Israel should be con-
cluded by a unilateral Egyptian-
Israeli coming to terms over mili-
tary disengagement.
Syria has already told us that
what was acceptable to Egypt is
not acceptable to her.
AND SO what Hurryin' Henry
Kissinger has accomplished in the
Middle East is the groundwork
for yet another Arab offensive
disguised in the phony costume
of detente, in which Egypt se-
cures a de facto victory in the
Sinai that her fighting forces
could not have achieved for them
selves given that the war would
continue two or three more days.
Once consolidated in her new

position in the Sinai, her Third
Army no langer surrounded as it
was at the moment of ceasefire,
but on the contrary now the "vic-
torious" occupant, there will be
nothing to stop Syria from
launching other offensives in the
north, to be followed by coordi-
nated Egyptian efforts to widen
her "gains" in the south the same
way that Nasser did after th
1956 war.
IN THE eyes of the world,
these moves will be mere sub
tleties, with nothing to stand in
the way but United Nation'
troops whose military worth i-
absclutely zero, and certainly not
worth disputing. John Foster Dul
les did not believe the violation
of the UNEF force at Gaza worth
disputing either.
In the first place, we will b?
reminded that the Syrians have
agreed to nothing.
In the second place, we will be
reminded that the Egyptians have
the right to do whatever they
please in the Sinai because it be-
longed to them from the begin
ning a damnable lie like so
many of the other lies that make
up the Middle East mythology
concoted by the Arars.
And so, Hurryin' Henry's ac-
complishment is dubious indeed.
WHAT HE has achieved is an-
other Vietnam. He acceded to Lp
Due Tho's command that Vie'
Cong enclaves be permitted in
South Vietnam, and now he has
acceded to Anwer Sadat's com-
mand that Egyptian enclaves be
permitted smack up against the
most sensitive security points of
Israeli national survivaL
The UN buffer between these
points and the phony proposition
of a "thinned-out" Egyptian force
along Suez is a mind-boggling
fantasy that no fool but the Amer
ican fool for a moment believes
in and I'm not too sure that
the American fool believes it
Only the professional do-good-
ers, the Boy Scout press, see any
good in it. To be for peace, even
peace Kissinger-style, makes them
rise in their own self-esteem. How
else can the Eric Sevareids, the
Howard K. Smiths graduate (or
perhaps disintegrate) from Boy
Scout into the cleric's misty-eyed

BUT THE realities are other-
wise. The snow storm that grip-
ped Jerusalem shows that even
the whole of nature rebelled
against Hurryin' Henry's deal as
a corruption of justice and a sin

who died in the war will never
be able to expiate.

Sees It
NEW YORKThe stories from Washington about military
spying inside the federal government during 1971 don't mean
that the military elite is about to take over the civilian govern-
But they do mean that no government today can be complac-
ent about the role of its generals and admirals, not even ::.,
United States, which has prided itself on an unbroken tradition
of civilian control of the military.
In their larger outline the stories seem to be saying that the
Joint Chief of Staffs, along with the Defense Department, were
pretty unhappy about what might be going on inside Henry K .
singer's office in the National Security Council.
IT WAS the time of the secret preparations for the detente
with China and Russia, which couldn't have added to their
felicity. So they took the course of using their liaison people as
Some material seems to have reached Adm. Thomas H.
Moorer, the head of the Joint Chiefs. When President Nixon
heard this so the story goes he was in a rage and wanted to
fire Moorer, but was dissuaded. No one was punished. It would
have broken too many things wide open.
IT IS a tangled story, pieced together by New York, Wash-
ington and Chicago papers. Some details may be off, but the
main thrust has the sound of truth. It was not spying in the tradi-
tional sense, involving the tapping of one nation's secrets by an-
other. It was high-stake infighting between agencies of the same
government, using sneaky, covert means.
Call it interagency spying. Those who commanded it did it
as part of a power struggle to influence high policy, doubtless
out of patriotic motives. That may be what a Washington official
meant when he said that the Pentagon people "simply wanted to
know what the state of play was."
YET FAR more was involved than idle curiosity. The whole
story shows that government isn't a polite textbook operation.
Any administration in Washington is a lethal jungle where of-
ficials appointed by the same President, waving the same par.v
banners, playing golf and drinking cocktails together, use fang
and claw on high-stake issues.
Whether in Paris, Bonn, Moscow, Peking or Washington.
interagency spying is par for the course, as it is inside big cor-
But when it involves the military it gets more dangerous.
They have the arms, and with nuclear powers the arms are
nuclear and the stakes are accordingly sky-high.
I HAVE talked with enough defense officers in every service
to know that they take the tradition of civilian control seriously.
But if you are one of the Joint Chiefs or high in the Defense
Department (note the recent figures on the growing number of
generals and admirals holding high posts in the presumably
civilian Pentagon), you will worry about the state of American
arms. And your worries may touch a sensitive nerve.
Call this the battle point the point at which a military man
gets aroused enough to do battle for his beliefs about American
military strength. It is the point where he may feel that the Rus-
sians are achieving weapons primacy over the Americans
EVERY MAN has a don'ttouch-me point. This is the military
man's don't-touch-me. Thus, the key to military-civilian politics

Holocaust Eyewitness Speaks
At Federation Group Meetings
By KnA'Wto&miN
Mrs. Jeanne Damon-Scas.ione, a
former Belgian i esistance worker
and now combination housewife
and lecturer, came to Ho.lywood
recently to speak before the Jew-
ish Welfare Federation's Young
Leaders Council and Women's
Leadership Institute.
The red haired woman with the
strong face and eyes which have
seen too much, dented the soul
and conscience of each 1 stenei
with her intense report of the
holocaust. As she saw it.
A practicing Roman Catholic in
1942. Jeanne Damon was a young
teacher who'd never heard of anti-
However, as the German edict?
for all Jews to register their ad-
dresses' ;.nd for all Jewish chil
dren to be taken, out of public
schools started being enforced, she
accidentally became a future ad-
vocate of the Jewish people.
Mrs. Damon-Scaglione said, "At
that time there were not enough
Jewish girls to teach privately so
the parents came to me for pro-
fessional help."
The "Nes Petits" kindergarten
was started where she was to be-
come headmistress by day and
smuggler of Jews into hiding by
As Jeanne Damon stands in her
dignified Italian knit dress and
- aks, she points two antique-
directly at a listener and
says: "It was a time not to associ-

could happen."
Then she points those fingers at
someone else and a:ks. "What

Her audience becomes immobile
with inner thought.
Then, with dynamic fervor, she
beseeches, "Your children must
know what happened even though
the subject is painful."
Some of the things they must
know, she recounts with yester-
day's clarity: "The Gestapo com-
ing to school and taking three- and
four-year olds away in a truck,
she'll pack her suitcase and go on
to another city to imbue more
Jews with the message of her eye-
witness report.
However, never far from her
mind either is Prof. Aldo Scag
lione, distinguished professor of
comparative literature at the Uni-
versity of North Carolina.

Mrs. Scaglione, who no longer
practices her reli-ion because:
"I'm independent. I have no great
personal need for formal reli-
gion," nevertheless told her Jew-
ish audience, "One must pay a
price for being a Jew. It is a
worthy inheiitance. The Warsaw
Jew was the Jew who started to
resist. Today, Israel demonstrates
that spirit!"
At the conclusion of her dra-
matic account of a time etched
profoundly in her life, the lady is
physically spent.
"I get tired easier these days,"
she says.
And yet, no matter how tired,

Mrs. Jeanne Damon-Scaglione,
'art housewife, part lecturer, and
wholly an unusual woman of great
sensitivity and emotional depth,
continues so that people shall
never forget.

It also means r.iat by the time
she became engaged to be married,
her father was the wealthy patri-
arch of a family numbering 11
children, the only Jewish family
raiding in a place called Auburn.
Her mother, a British-born Jew-
ish lady, was so busy coping with
her multitude of children that she
rarely utilized the "chauffeur and

home in Syracuse, the Lithuanian
Jews were planning their eco-

Not to be outdone by the "show-
off egotistical Russian," they pre-
pared their youngest son for "the
catch from Auburn."
For starters, my father's family
gave him a theatre from their
chain of theatres.

However, his family figured if the
movie projectioni>t showed up on

how bad could a theatre do?

Hadassah Presents
Szold Award To
Dutch Government
By Special Report
JERUSALEM Hadassah pre-
sented its highest award, the Hen-
rietta Szold Award, to the govern-
ment of the Netherlands and its
people at its mid-winter conference
The award was accented by Prof.
Simon Giter, a Dutch citizen cur-
rently teaching in Israel, at his
government's request. Prof. Giter
received a long and enthusiastic
ovation from the organization's 150
leaders attending the meeting.
The award, established in 1949.
is usually conferred upon a dis-
tinguished personality. Previous
recipients include the late David
Ben-Gurion, Harry S. Truman.
Eleanor Roosevelt and the Roths-
child Family.
In presenting the award, Mrs.
Charlotte Jacobson. chairman of
the Award Committee, said: "In
an age when few nations choose
moral position over expediency, in
an age when few nations choose
spiritual power as a sign of great-
ness and strength, the world must
be grateful that the government
and the people of the Netherlands
shine as an example of how small
nations can lead the world.
"Hadassah honors the Dutch peo-
| pie," Mrs. Jacobson continued, "for
, its courageous fight against Nazis
i during the occupation of their
I land and their heroic efforts to
save their Jewish people; not only
for voting in the United Nations
for the establishment of the state
but for being the first nation to
' establish an embassy in Jerusalem;

j rael in Poland and the Soviet

by Six Reform and Conservative
groups opposing a new coalition

would deny the validity of con-

RABBI LOUIS Bernstein, pres-

"The essence of conversion is

Cabinet Approves Sll Billion
Supplementary Budget Rise
Cabinet lias approved a record
IL 11 billion supplementary
budget representing an increase
of more than 50 per cent over
the regular annual budget of IL
20 billion.
The supplementary budget is
intended mainly to cover ex-
penses arising from the Yom
Kippur War. It is over and above
an emergency supplementary
budget of IL 1.25 billion approved
while the war was still being
fought to cover immediate ex-
et was approved without opposi-
tion and will be submitted to the
eighth Knesset when it convenes
for the first time next week.
Finance Minister Pinhas Sapir,
who introduced the budget to the
Cabinet, said it was Israel's big-
gest additional budget, both abso-
lutely and relatively.
In addit:on to regular war ex-
penses, the budget also covers
the salaries paid mobilized men.
which amount to IL 200 million
a month.
The budget also includes sums |
which were determined before
the war. such as the pay increases
in the summer of 1973.
SAPIR SAID that in addition
to the budgetary price, there is
an economic price to the war,
namely the loss in the Gross Na-
tional Product. This declined
sharply in the last quarter of the
year, more sharply than any de-
cline in the past and was related
to the partial mobilization of the
economy. Sapir
Aft Sough' ttic' frnancial aid

siderable, Sapir said, most of the
burden still falls on Israelis
He said tnai tile additional
budget did not call for new taxes,
and it relied mainly on the com-
pulsory war loan, the voluntary
war loan and loans from abroad.
Sapir praised the aid coming
from world Jewry.
BANK OF Israel Governor
Moshe Zanbar said the economy
should be operated as widely as
possible, but with emphasis on
export and development rather
than private consumption. He
said the world economic difficul-
ties made exporting more diffi-
cult than in the past.
The Cabinet also nominated Dr.
Zevi Dienstein as advisor to the
governor on petroleum and en-
ergy. Dienstein served until now

and Shofar of Hollywood.
When describing a vacation
spot, this traveler often finds
the word "memorable" to be
overused and undeserved. How-
ever, after a recent stay at the
newly opened Halcyon Cove on
Antigua, all the best adjectives
and adverbs come into play. It
is truly a memorable resort,
and one I plan to visit often!
One of my special memories
is the sheer beauty of the set-
ting. As I basked on the com-
fortably soft and clean beach
of the Cove, gazing out on to
the Dickenson Bay of Admiral
Horatio Nelson, time and na-
ture seemed in perfect harmony.
Turning the other way, one
could take in the modern resort
itself, set among tropical foli-
age, and the green hillside be-
The Halcyon Cove's 104 rooms
are conveniently situated just a
short stroll from the beach and
the intriguingly curved swim-
ming pool. The rooms, offering
furniture of native rattan, are
delightfully cool and afford
panoramic views of the bay. In-
cidentally, a nature lover must
have named each of the living

can, Weaver to Woodpecker,

water skiing and power boating

bers can have their day enjoy-
ing tennis, pitch-and-putt golf,
horseback riding, ping pong and
Sun and surf and the gentle
trade winds invariably made a
person eager to dine. And what
dining! The Panorama Restau-
rant, perched on the hillside
and reached by a "hill-evator"
cable car, features the finest of
American, European and taste-
tempting island cuisine. Fresh
bread, rolls and pastries come
right from the oven to you, and
really set up the tastebuds for
the gourmet treats that follow.
There's also the Warri Res-
taurant and Pier Bar, set on a
breeze-kissed pier extending
out into the bay. It specializes
in delicious steak and lobster
dinners and is a popular place
for luncheon and snacks. Night-
ly entertainment (at the Pano-
rama Restaurant) is sparked
by live bands, floor shows, steel
bands and fashion shows.
Perhaps one can best explain
the success of the Halcyon Cove
by citing management's atten-
tion to detail: telephones in the
rooms full-width sliding
glass doors for sea viewing .
a colorful little jitney bus to
complement the "hill-evator"
(my favorite!).
Several hours of pleasant
mini-sailboating on the bay were
followed by a snorkeling expe-
dition. Because the bay is crys-
tal clear and protected from
the open sea by an offshore
coral reef, the gamut of Anti-
guan marine life can easily be
seen and enjoyed. Scuba diving,
. wine lists with actual la-
bels instead of printed names
. and so much more.
Of course, there comes the
time for going home. But, like
Christopher Columbus, yeu
probably won't depart without
first promising you'll return
at the very first chance!

says: "I remember (Morris) Hil-

never a Socialist, Beame always
considered himself in the liberal
tradition, though in the current
Mayoralty campaign he was la-
beled a moderate. One of his
idols was Gov. Herbert Lehman.
"I was always very deeply im-
pressed by his non-flamboyance,"
he has told reporters. "His po-
litical and administrative style
was based on facts, rather than
on flowery oratory."
In the early days. Beame's
father ran a restaurant, in which
Abe and his brothers worked be-
fore and after school. Later his
father went to work as a paper-
cutter foreman in a stationery
factory, where Abe was to hold
his first real job.
When asked by a reporter if he
could name an idea, a person,
or a book that was a big influence
on his life, Beame answered:
"IT MIGHT sound corny, but
the things that influenced my
life were the Horatio Alger books.
I loved them. I was an avid read-
er of them. They preached hon-
esty and good citizenship. It was
always a question that you had
to be straightforward, a good citi-
zen. They had a great effect on

from Abe Beame. He is a seri-
ous man, was undoubtedly seri-
ous as a young man, and it is un-
questionably true that he always
set his sights on success in the
best Alger tradition.
I got to know Beame intimately
during my years with the Amer-
ican-Israel Culture Foundation,
an organization to which he has
long been devoted. One year, he
was the chairman of its annual
Madison Square Garden fund rais-
ing event, "Music Under the
Stars." which raised over $100,000
for the support of cultural pro-
grams in Israel.
HE WAS a conscientious, meth-
odical and devoted chairman. At
another time, after his election
as comptroller, he was a modest
guest of honor at this annual
event. I last saw him on election
eve, at the Waldorf, where he
graced the dais of the famed
Chaim Weizmann dinner, a need-
lessly unnecessary appearance for
a candidate who was a "shoo-in"
but one by which h:> demonstrated
again his solidarity with Israel.
Beame has always been a de-

HOW DID Beame win the nom-

But the results showed that the

ordinarily would have supported
the more radical Badillo were on
the Beame side. It has been esti-

the Jewish vote went to Beame

H ...;:; Ml ....;.,.;.:..a,. M I
By BOB KIBBU, Executive Director,
it wish Welfare federation of Greater Molly woo*
We are now in the heart of our 1974 Jewish Welfare Federation
campaign. Many of us have gone through numerous campaigns to-
gether and we remember the different slogans which have been used:
"Survival Mean Sacrifice"' "Keep the Promise" "Never Again."
Much campaign literature has been geared to giving money to
institutions and countries. This year the staff has gathered with vol-
unteers and campaign people and the tone and the feeling of what we
are trying to accomplish has changed. It appears that the impression
we are now attempting to develop is "people caring for people"; for
each individual to look at what he wants for himself or herself, their
children and grandchildren's future.
Two concepts are being developed. One came from a greeting card
sent to our staff a beautiful C3rd with a flower that said simply:
"Caring that's what it's all about."
The more deeply we studied these few words, the more emotion
we felt and the stronger was our belief that if we could impress each
one with the expression's meaning, to help us all feel that it is the
caring that's important, then we could expect a most successful 1974
Do we care about the future of the State of Israel? Do we care
about enriching and developing our community? Do we care about
thoso Individual families with problems? Most important, do we care
about ourselves? What mark will we make in order to be remembered
as righteous people?
The other them? we've developed, primarily with community wom-
en's leader-hip. is that Jews, one to the other, are links in a chain of
history which must not be broken. Links make chains and chains have
great Jewish significance.
It was the chains of oppression that caused Masada, a place where
our people, surrounded by the tommy on all sides, held out and refused
to surrender. Rather than surrender their ideals, they committed sui-
cide. It was th- only way they could handle oppression. We know in
order to maintain the unbroken chain. Masada must never happen again.
Tb-?re were also the chains and oppressions of the Crusaders, the I
Inquisition, the holocaust, Soviet Jewry and the Arab world. Each link
represents a generation that has been strong enough to continue the
continuity of Judaism. Even during our most assimilationist periods
where we've looked toward freedom and to being accepted as indi-
viduals, our link with Judaism helped us survive.
We are now faced with a challenge again. Each of our links must
continue to be strong and our theme of being links in a chain must
demonstrate this.
Moshe Dayan has said: "If you feel Jewish you will do what one !
Jew does for another Help."
Caring, that's what it is all about.

ject: Education
During winter vacation. I repre-
sented the Jewish community of
Hollywood at the 23rd annual In-
ternational Convention of United
Synagogue Youth of United Syna-
gogue of America, the national or-
ganization of Conservative Juda-
ism, held in Los Angeles. There 1
received a special insight into the
future of Conservative Judaism
and Judaism as a whole.
It started when we received a
heartwarming welcome by Sammy
Davis Jr. at our L.A. airport ar-
rival. At the opening session, Los
Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley greet
ed us and spoke of his deep feel-
ings and admiration for Jewish
people all over the world, espe-
cially Israelis. I don't feel that he
was trying to impress us. I think
there was deep meaning in his
words regarding Israel, the fu-
ture of American Jewry, and broth-
erhood of all men.
This was an educational, religious
and social experience and, I must
add. the most stimulating and re-
warding experience I've ever had.
Being with 1.100 teenagers from
all over the United States, Mexico
and Canada gave me a deeper feel
ing and attachment to my people,
my religion, my culture and to Is-
rael. Living Judaism for five days
was a beautiful experience, and I
hope to continue living Judaism
every day the rest of my life.

sions, religious services, swimming.

entertained our community at the
Salute to Israel program in Sep
tember 1972), lighting the Chan-

crying through a movie on the
annihilation of the Jews during
the Nazi regime, our Judaism
glowed more magnificently than
the lights on the menorah.
The popular belief that Judaism
is on the decline is not so. I be
lieve it is on the ascent more
Jews are realizing who they are
and what they stand for and would
rather "fight than switch." Sure
there is a great deal of intermar-
riage and conversion, but that, my
friends, is because those people
did not feel the glow nor have the
opportunity to benefit from Its
great power.
The only way we can brighten
and strengthen the glow is through
Jewish education, through commit-
ment to our synagogues, to the
Jewish community and to Israel.
You may say, "Well, I didn't
get anything out of Hebrew
school," or "My children cannot
stand it."
Let me ask this: "What did you
, contribute to your child's Jewish
I tducation besides paying dues?

are its officials considering tak-
ing action in reopening theit:
THE TRIFA case stands out as
the most incredible. Here we
have a murderer of thousands of
both Jews and Christians, a
World War II criminal found
guilty of war crimes and sen
tenced by a Rumanian non-Com-
munist court to serve a life sen-
tence at hard labor, walking the
streets of a leading American
city a proud and free man clothed
in the robe of a priest heading a
religious body.
Unbelivable. but it is the truth
and only in a quick-to-forget
America could such a thing hap-
pen a "Watergate-type" of
I event in the early 1950s.
But what is most fantastic of
all is the fact that this criminal
in the year 1955. in his clerical
disguise, was invited to give the
opening prayer in the US. Sen-
WHO EXACTLY is this man
who has made the Detroit area
his home base and how in the
face of his World War II record

United States?
These and many other ques-
tions were asked by a few elect
Americans who protested via the
press, radio and even the Con-
gress in the strongest possible
terms in the early '50s and even
in the '60s, but somehow their
voices went unheard by the au-
thorities who found no cause for
alarm despite all the historic evi-
dence indisputably pointing to
the man's guilt.
Among this evidence was an
indictment put out by genuine
Rumanian church leaders. The
Patriarch Theodosie of Antioch,
in a communication addressed to
the Patriarch Justinian of Ru-
mania of Jan. 20, 1960, disclosed
the following facts:
THE IMPOSTER priest, call-
ing himself Valerian Trifa, is an
ex-communicated layman, a lead-
er of a Nazi organization called
in Rumania "The Iron Guard."
Trifa is a murderer, a war
criminal, a fugitive from justice.
He entered the U.S. under false
pretenses: he was elected a bishop
in an illegal and rebellious con-
gress presided over by an un-
frocked priest; he was ordained
by heretics belonging to the sect
EDITOR'S NOTE: David Horowiti, a veteran UN correspondent,
has for the past five years been engaged in exposing the
wartime fascist activities of Valerian D. Trifa who is cur-
rently a bishop in Michigan heading the Rumanian Orthodox
Episcopate of America. Trifa is under investigation by the
U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Services on charges
that he lied about his past anti-Semitic activities and mem-
bership in Rumania's Fascist Iron Guard when he app'.ied
for admission to the U.S. in 1951 and for U.S. naturalization
in 1957.
of Lipovsky, a Russian unfrocked
Valerian Trifa is the notori-
ous Viorel Trifa who was ex-com-
municated from the church by
His Eminence Metropolitan Nic-
olae Balan. He became the leader
of the anti-Semitic Iron Guard
and directed the blood rebellion
on the 21st of January 1941 dur-
ing which, besides plundering
and burning down synagogue*
and two suburbs, he murdered
thousands of Jews and Christians
A FUGITIVE from justice,
he fled to the Third Reich where
he was protected by Hitler who
refused to extradite him as a
murderer. Getting in trouble in
Germany by disobeying orders,
he escaDed to Italy where he
joined the Catholic church, serv-
ing it for five years as a lecturer.
With his Italian background,
the fugitive was brought to the
U.S. in 1950 to become, of all
things, the "editor" of the Ru-
manian newspaper "America,"
for which he never worked but
did draw a salary. In the same
year he was "elected" as a
"bishop" by a rebellious congress
convened in Chicago.
EXACTLY HOW he managed
to maneuver himself into this
post was explained later by the
Very Rev. Vasile Pascau. secre-
tary of the Rumanian Orthodox
Canonical Bishop of America.
"As evidence that pesudo-
Bishop Valerian Trifa is an un
desirable and dangerous element
among our people here in Amer-
ica." Fr. Pascau charged in a
communique, "we expose the fol-
lowing deed:
"On' July 6, 195*,^ Valeria n
Trifa came to our Episcopate
headquarters in Grass i Lake,
Mich., well-organized and accom-
panied by a group of his Iron
Guardist hoodlums, DPs gathered
together note well from all
over the United States and Can-
ada, breaking the padlock of the
gate, invading our property,
screaming, threatening our lives,
beating an old priest, trying t)
turn over our cars, cutting the,
telephone wires, creating panic
and terror among our women,
children and old people, exactly
as Hitler did once in Germany
against the Jews. After this kind
of ordeal, they took over our
property by force, chasing us out.
"THEREFORE this Trifa is a
shame ana a disgrace to our Ru-
manian name here in America."
While most American leaders
blinded themselves to the facts
which had been disclosed and
passed over in silence the com-
plaints lodged against the Ru-
manian Nazi, some few voices
were indeed raised. Among these
were those of Congressman Sey-
mour Halpern (R., N.Y.), Drew
Pearson, Walter Winchell and a
few others.

sure against Trifa mounted.

What makes Mike's story one you
can't ignore is the similarity of back-
ground he shares with so many other
sons and daughters who didn't get
the help they needed.
Mike grew up in a nice Jewish
home in the suburbs. In the summer
he went to sleepaway camp coming
back after each season filled with
camp.songs and new words in his
His Bar Mitzvah was a big affair.
The food was great... the people
endless ... and Mike chanted his
Haftorah portion beautifully.
In high school he made new
friends ... played a lot of ball...
worked fairly hard ... and did well
on his SAT's. Well enough to get into
the college he wanted.
At college, Mike was away from
home for the first time. Free to do
what he liked and absorb the new
ways of thinking around him. And he
started looking for answers ... ideas
to believe in ... a path to follow. Like
some others, he started experiment-
ing with drugs. LSD ... mescaline
... cocaine ... heroin.
Mike was a nice Jewish kid caught
up in a disease that killed many
thousands of young people last year;
three of whom were Mike's friends!
One day Mike woke up in a city
hospital ward. Sick, scared, alone.
A Rabbi walking around (tie hospital
stopped to see him. And something
deep down within Mike responded.
A few days and a few conversations
later, the Rabbi suggested a building
on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn
where Mike could stay for a few
days. There he met other boys who
were devoting virtually all their wak-
ing hours to study and prayer.
Mike spent one day tfiere and de-
cided it wasn't for him. He returned
to the East Village and drugs. An-
other week passed and Mike, sick,
as well as sickened with himself, re-
membered the glimmer of hope that
was ignited by the Rabbi and went
back to that building on Eastern

He's been there for a year and a
half. He works at a grocery store
nights and has started classes at

since the day he went back!
Is there really a Mike? Yes, there

Since 1962, Hadar VlaTorah has
been an answer for young Jewish
kids with their problems. Giving them
identity. Bringing them back to the
community. Providing them with an
intense personal involvement they
can believe in.
Hadar HaTorah relies on voluntary
support to continue its work. Up to
now this support has come from a
limited group of wealthy donors. But
now as Hadar HaTorah broadens
its services to Jewish youth the
needs urgently require widespread
assistance from concerned individ-
uals just like you. S2500 per year
supports the rebuilding of one stu-
dent's life. S50 supports a boy for a
week. As little as S10 provides a full
day's meals, bed and instruction.
Please help us by sending as little or
as much as you can. You'll be help-

Jews. And if that's not worthwhile
... what is?

Minister Abba Eban and former
Histadrut Secretary General
Yitzhak Ben Aharon both lashed
out against Dayan at a closed
meeting of the Labor Party lead-
ership in Tel Aviv.
Ion was also reported to be un-
happy with the party and his
position in it and has hinted to
friends and supporters that he
may decline to serve in a new
government, particularly if it in-
cluded his old political rival,
The Beth Berl meeting was
attended by Laborite academi-
cians and intellectuals who had
made no secret before the elec-
tions of the fact that they would
vote Labor only because there
was no alternative. They were
joined by other groups who have
been outspoken against the par-
ty's leadership, including Knes-
set members Aryeh Eliav and
Avraham Offer, two of Labor's
leading "doves."
The outcome of the meeting
was a series of demands on the
party, the first of which was
that it should not deviate from
the 14-point platform. They al
so demanded a policy of rota-
tion in filling Cabinet and party
posts, especially the Defense
Ministry and the dissolution of
all groups and factions within
the Labor Party.

Kippur war. fateful decision.'
are being adopted by three peo
pie Premier Golda Meir, Dayan
and Galili.-' He claimed that
"Things have gone back to their
previous status, with all the hor
ror that it entails." Offer sait"
he did not blame Dayan "but
those who follow him blind-
folded "
He said he had no doubt that
the government wants peace but
blamed Mrs. Meir for creating
an impression of doubt as to
her government's peaceful in-
tentions. Israel Granit, who
headed the party's organiza-
tional department until recently,
demanded the replacement not
only of Dayan "who has become
an institution," but Eban as well
because "he is too long in his
office, and there is too much
dust and stoning" in the For-
eign Ministry.
Other speakers also attacked
Mrs. Meir's so-called "Kitchen
Cabinet" and charged that fate-
ful decisions were made by a
tiny inner circle instead of the
full Cabinet or party forum.
AT THE meeting, Eban as
sailed the government's pre-war
defense policies without men-
tioning Dayan by name. But he
was clearly referring to the De-
fense Minister when he said he
recoiled from the charismatic
form of power exercised by
some persons in government.
Statements "from within our
own camp" have weakened Is
rael's credibility as a peace
seeked, he said.
Allon recalled that he had
been sharply critical of Dayan's
policies and political style even
when the Defense Minister was
at the peak of his popularity in
the post-Six-Day War years. He
said his opinions of Dayan were
well known when others "still
thought there was something
uniquely special about the man."
Allon may be a candidate for
Dayan's post. He is known to
be dissatisfied with the largely
titular deputy premiership and
to want a more prominent Cabi-
net position than that of Minis-
ter of Education and Culture.
Yaacov Hazan, the veteran
Mapam leader, said a time
might come when he would sup-
port Allon for Prime Minister.
THE UPSHOT of the Labor
leadership meeting was endorse-
ment of the decision of Premier
Meir and Finance Minister
Pinhas Sapir against a national
coalition government that would
include Likud. But even on that
issue, the party was not of one
mind. Deputy Transport Minis-
ter Gad Yaacobi and MK Morde-
chai Ben Porat said they would
support a national coalition if
Likud agreed to back Israel's
participation in the Geneva
peace conference and the 14
points were adhered to.
But they were overruled.
Over the weekend the party ma-
jority was strengthened some-
what when three Arabs elected
to the Knesset officially joined
the Labor Alignment giving it
54 seats in the next parliament.
After all, the Kissinger "peace"
was wrenched from the Israeli
soul by a Kissinger stranglehold
on Israel's democratic process. It
was wrenched from a government
with no mandate to govern ex-
cept by a coalition it did not have
so soon after tne Dec. 31 election.
(As of this writing, it still does
not have it.)
"peace" from Meir and Dayan at
a time when she barely made it
back into power, and he is re-
peatedly being called upon to
The fact is that a majority of
Israel said NO to their leadership
at the ballot box where, if Is-
raelis had not found Menachem
Beigin so unplatable, it is obvi-
ously Beigin with whom Kis-
would have had to deal.
And so it is entirely conceiv-
able that, feeling no pain for
that, he should feel no pain for
the inadmissable questions, too.
And that the secret agreements,
written and unwritten, are the
government's submission to what
is now not only admissable but
secret commitments about Mitla
and Gidi. Golan and Jerusalem
yet to be known.
AS I see it, Hurryin' Henry
brought a Watergate of sorts to
Israel. He stole an election to rob
a people. Reckoned in these
terms, the danger to his phony
peace is not only from the Arabs
but from the two-timed Israelis
themselves, who may yet rebel
against losing their victory' be-
cause Kissinger wanted them to,
and above all. rebel against los-
ing their freedom of choice.

Shazly9 s Naming as Envoy-
Stirs Ire of Many Britons
LONDON (JTA) A storm is brewing here over the Foreign
Office's anticipated acceptance of Gen. Saad el-Shazly as the new
Egyptian ambassador to Britain. Informed sources told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that approval of Shazly's appointment is expected
despite the general's known association with British neo-Nazis when
he served in London as a military attache in 1963 and the recent
revelation that he was the author of a pamphlet issued to Egyptian
troops during the Yom Kippur War exhorting them to kill captured
Israeli soldiers.
"The entire British community
would be shocked to think that
a person who could act in this
fashion should now be coming
again in this capacity."
a news item from the Daily Ex-
press "which quotes more recent
sentiments expressed by Shazly
in connection with the killing of
Jews whether Israeli prisoners
of war or other."
THE JTA was told that the
Foreign Office wants to avoid
what it describes as a major po-
litical row with Egypt even
though it is "somewhat annoyed"
with Cairo for having announced
the designation of Shazly before
his accreditation was confirmed,
a move contrary to standard dip-
lomatic practice.
The Foreign Office had refused
to confirm or deny that Shazly
was the Egyptian ambassador-des-
ignate even after the news was
out in Cairo.
But a Foreign Office spokes-
man finally admitted that an ap-
plication for accreditation of Shaz-
ly had been received from the
Egyptian government.
prompted Michael Fidler. a Con-
servative MP and past president
of the Board of Deputies of Brit-
ish Jews to send a letter of pro-
test to Foreign Secretary Sir Alex
The text of Fidler's letter, made
available to the JTA, said in
"It would be infamous if Gen.
Shazly, with his, record 11 years
ago in London of close association
with the National Socialist Move-
ment and /or other fascist organi-
zations in Britain should now be
permitted to come here in such
The notorious Shazly pamphlet
was brought to the attention of
members of Parliament of all par-
ties and British veterans and stu-
dent groups last week by Moshe
Barneah, secretary of the Israeli
branch of Amnesty International.
He noted that thousands of
them were distributed to Egyp-
tian soldiers by the Army Infor-
mation Service with instructions
signed by Shazly who was chief
of staff of the Egyptian Army at

Export-Import Bank
Loan For Pipeline
The U.S. Export-Import Bank an-
nounced on Jan. 10 that it is
providing up to $100 million for
a pipeline through Egypt that will
be owned and operated by Arab
countries which are now engaged
in an oil embargo against the
United States.
The announcement of the loan
was seen as an inducement by
the U.S. government to those
countries, especially Egypt, to-
ward easing the way toward nego-
tiations with Israel for a peace
settlement and to help resume the
flow of oil to the U.S. from that

will incur sales of up to $200 mil-

The Delights of Scholarly Production: Twersky and Neusner
WHEN A scholar is in com-
mancl of his material and
can express himself lucidly and
in a prose style that is weighed
with all literary virtues, readers
should not delay in acquiring
su ch a masterpiece.
Isadore Twersky is Nathan
Llttauer Professor of Hebrew
Literature and Philosophy at
[Harvard University. He isanot-
11 | authority on rabbinic litera-
ture and Jewish history.
HE HAS edited and added
notes in "A Maimonides Read-
Behrman House, $12.50, 492
pp., and the published has
spared nothing to make the
! tok most attractive and read-
Cwersky'l preface and intro-
ion alone would justify the
purchase. The major portion of
balance of the book is the
translation of selected portions
i : the Mishneh Torch (all 14
ks), followed b another in-
induction to the Guide to the
Perplexed and then selections
from many other writings which
include his famous "Epistle to
The purpose of the volume Is
to acquaint readers with Mai-
monides as a multifaceted. but
essentially harmonious person-
ality by exposing the reader; to
?he form, content, and scope of
the great man's legacy, his fas-
tid'ousness of thought and ex-
pression, and his fusion of tra-
dition and innovation, its cold
intellectualism and warm hu-
manity, his rationalism and
IN SHORT, ihe editor has
sought to provide a measure of
objective knowledge about the
real Maimonides. Prof. Twersky
has succeeded admirablv.

Jacob Neusner's latest hook,
ally experience the Talmud as
'Invitation to the Talmud: A
Teaching Book" (Haroer &
Row, $7'95. 261 pp.), also has
many virtues.

Soviets, Arabs, Racists
Singing (he Same Tune
"^ HETHER THE Soviet government is genuinely seeking to
help a settlement in Geneva as a superpower's resoon-
shinty or merely using the U S.-initiated conference as a means

t:ie coming; weeks.
One test.of its intentions is the tone and volume of its prooa-
la towards Israel and its actions towa.tls the Jewish peop'e
Particularly those in the Soviet Union who wish to emigrate
HANDSHAKES BETWEEN foreign ministers and reneat-d
adherence to the Arab version of the UN Securitv Resolution 242
are hardly balancing the rise since the Six-Day War of Soviet
Propaganda that has become in some ways even more vitupera-
tive since the Yom Kippur hostilities.
Moscow gloats over the agitation in the West over the Arab
oil embargo, which the Kremlin is believed in some quarters to
have planned or encouraged.
It rails with ever-increasing bitterness towards Americans
sympathizing with isolated Israel and those who see detente as
a two-way street with human relations as a measure of good in
t rnational conduct.
Now it even implies that Arab terrorism is Zionist plotting.
How much trust can a victim put in those who invent such
calumnies while talking 'peace" in Geneva?
SOVIET PROPAGANDISTS apparently do not mind being in
political tune with our own white racists and neo-Nazis or the
pro-Palestine Arab agitators, foreign and domestic, who are stir-
ring up bigotry at a pitch unheard for almost 40 years in America.
They find no fault in the oil embargo that strikes at the
world's poorest peoples in Africa and Asia even though the
Sheikhdoms, using Israel as a scapegoat, reap enormous profits.
The Soviet Union itself does not shrink from making a tidy in-
come itself on the fuel shortage, when possible, and punishes
those who seek to expose it.
For example, after the Swedish radio reported Soviet tank-
er- were hauling oil to Holland, the Soviet authorities revoked
'.he press accreditation of Ollie Stenbohm. Moscow correspondent
cf the Swedish Broadcasting Corp.
IT ACCUSED him of anti-Soviet activity. The ouster implied
to other foreign newsmen not to report developments reflecting
adversely on the Soviet Union if they wish to stay in Moscow.
Long before the oii distributors themselves engaged in ex-
orbitant price hikes, the Soviet government offered Denmark
70.000 barrels of oil at $30 a barrel, more than nine times the go-
ing price at the time. Oil-pinched Denmark bought it.
bveatia felt outraged when Sen. Richard S. Schweiker (R.-
Pa.) suggested that the United States suspend trade with the
Soviet Union until the Kremlin persuades its Arab friends to lift
the oil embargo. Tan charged Sen. Henry M. Jackson (D.-Wash.)
and "ringleaders" of the United Jewish Appeal were collaborating
with "direct agents of the Israeli government who sacrifice the
national interests of tlw American people to Tel Aviv's Middle
East aggression."
SCHWEIKER RESPONDED by pointing out that the Soviet
Union wants to borrow $8.1 billions from the U.S. Export-Im-
port Bank and private banks to develop its Siberian energy field3
"on terms more favorable than other U.S. trade partners enjoy."

many praiseworthy facets of the

polemic against the modern

takes a similar tack in his book
which will be reviewed shortly.
Neusner is a rabbi and chair-
man of the Department of Re-
ligion at Brown University. He
explains why a proper study of
the Talmud will help our youth
and restore the sanctity of rit-
ual and Judaism.

How About the Tenth Woman?
IT'S A long jump back in time from 1973 meet-
ings of synagogical bodies to Genesis. But now
that top layer section? of Conservative Jewry
have opened the way for women to be counted
for a minyan. we are impelled to retrace our
steps and to ask history to tell us how women
happened to be pushed to the end of the bus in
the iir=t place.
So to start with Genesis: "The Lord God
said. 'It is not good for man to be alone: I will
make a fitting helper for him.'" La'er on
'helper" came wp as '"helpmeet"; and from thai
point on. it was just a skip and a hop to "help-
A STILL further hunt will show you that
Cruden's Concordance to the Old and New Testa-
ment concludes that 'woman was created to be
... an assistant to man." When leaders of the
National Organization of Women (NOW) take
note of that demotion, this cciumnist may be
hanged in effigy.
By now. all who follow news of the Jewish
world know that our Orthodox leaders are highly
critical cf the Conservative resolve to permit a
I. male to become the 10th man in a minyan.
Not long age. the Rabbinical Council, speak-
ing for Orthodoxy, declared that once th? Con-
servative decision had been announced, no justi-
fieutii/r. was in evidence for the continued exist-
i'f the Conservative movement.
AN ORTHODOX spokesman, highly placed,
offeri i the opinion tliat the Conservatives had
in effect voted to fo'low completely the Reform
movement, if so, perhaps we will see women
i lined as Conservative rabbis, thus following
th? example of the Reform rabbinical ranks,
which include Rabbi Sally Priesand.
Well, we mu? laymen hardly dare do more
than chew over this Conservative development.
Bui a- we watch from the bleachers, wondering
which tradition will fall, we may be forgiven for
suggesting that women's fast emancipation in

drive for passage of the' 27th Amendment (the

Some Disturbing Data on the Aged
f ORGANIZED JEWISH communities are realiz-
ing that the problem of Jewish aging may
become one of the most urgent problems they
wi.l be facing. Jews of 65 and over, although con-
sisting now 12 per cent of the total Jewish popula-
tion, head 21 per cent of Jewish households
The problem for the Jewish communities lies
in the crucial fact that 44 per cent of all house-
holds headed by persons of 65 years of ag3 or
older have reported their incom" as being under
$4,000 a year, which is below the poverty level.
TWENTY-FIVE per cent of them are one-
person households, and another 17 per cent in-
clude only the head of the household and the
spouse. Their income come? basically from Social
Security. Jewish communities have found that
this group requires a broad range of supportive
Next in the line of the Jewish households in
poverty are 13 per cent of all the aged Jewish
families who live in "marginal poverty." They
have reported an income from $4,000 to $6,000.
On the other end of the income scale are
two per cent of Jewish households with heads
of 85 years and over who have an income of
$12,000 and over.
IN THIS connection, it is interesting to note
that the majority heads of household aged 65 to
69 about 59 per cent are American-born. Tn
the age category of 70 years and over, the ma-
jority are foreign-born But even in this category
there are heads of hcuseholds who are first, sec-
ond and even third generation American-barn.

Israel's Informational Failures !
The more I hear and read of the accusations
i gainst Israel, not only by the Arab countries, but
by enlightened states of the world as well, the
I lore puzzled I am by our apparent failure to get
cur story across.
Certamly, the facts of the treacherous Yom
Kipiur day attack should have been clear and
obvious to all'
THE WHOLE "cae" again=t Israel is bu It
on historical untruths and on fallacies, but we
seem to be unable to tell our story to the world
The danger is that the naive and the gullible
and the weakhearted even among us may yet
come to believe t-Sat If everyone thinks Israel is
in the wrong, perhaps we ARE wrong and would
therefore do humanity a great favor by simply
commiting suicide.
Egypt has been making a great to-do about
Israel's occupation of the Sinai Desert, when as
a matter of historical fact Sinai was never part
of Egypt, and was simply appropriated in mod-
ern times. There was no indigenous population
to complain.
Repeatedly the Arabs talk about "restora-
tion" of the rights of the Palestinians. There had
never been a Palestinian Arab state, and there
had nver been an Arab government there. What
they mean is that the Jews should hand over Tel
a ..-.- and Haifa and th* villages of the Galilee
SIMILARLY. Jerusalem was never a part Of
Jordan, but was occiried bv Ki-,e Abdullah in
1S48 as par! of the military effort to throttle the
infint State of Israel at birth.
If th^re is need for a new deal in Israel lead-
ership, perhaps it should begin in these depatt-
ments of government.
