Nixon's 'Moral Decay9
NEW YORK (JTA) A prominent Jewish religious leader
ha? called President Nixon's tape transcripts "the saddest, most sick-
ening documents in the annals of American history," which have
produced an all-time moral low point in the nation.
In one of the sharpest condem-
nations of President Nixon by
iny national religious leader,
Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler,
president of the Union of Amer-
ican Hebrew Congregations, cas-
tigated Pi-esident Nixon's "im-
tnorality" as revealed by the lan-
guage and action in the tape
the tapes were "not the languaee
Bi the Presidency, but the lan-
guage of the gutter. It reeks with
the stench of moral decay."
The religious leader, whose or-
ganization represents 715 reform
synagogues in this country and
Canada, stated that he was not
discussing the legal guilt or inno-
cence of President Nixon, but
talking about the "moral tone"
which the transcripts unfold.

Shavuot Message
Rabbi, Temple Bosh Shalom
Chairman, Hollywood Rabbis
The Festival of Weeks. Better known as Shavuot, is a holi-
that really sets the mood and pace for Torah remembrance
and hopefully, observance. The commandments received through
Moses on Mount Sinai have served as the blueprint of life not
alone for the Jew. but for all mankind.
The era in which we are living is one of
such terrible chaos and destruction and when
one wonders what can be done and how can
it be done, we must recognize and accept the
fact that only through Torah living on a reg-
fl ular basis and remembering Biblical injunction
I and commandments and guides can we ulti-
I mately vet realize a semblance of overall
^^k^l peacefulness from within and without.
W We are blessed with a lovely community
in Hollywood with truly one of the finest happenings being the
close relationship demonstrated by the rabbinate, their respec-
tive temples and in a fashion of unity it has attempted to in-
culcate and implant Torah teachings according to respective
May Shavuot give us that special impetus to really ap-
preciate the Torah and Torah teachings as best suited and
indicated for each and every individual.

French View of Maalot Differs
From Report of Shimon Peres
TEL AVIV (JTA) French Ambassador Jean Hurly gave an
account of the events in Maalot which differs sharply with the offi-
cial version given by Information Minister Shimon Peres at a news
conference and by Premier Golda Meir in her radio and television
The French envoy's account,
contained in an Interview pub-
lished in Yediot Achronot May
16. was corroborated in part by
a Foreign Ministry document re-
leased on May 15 containing a
chronological summary of the
dipiornatic contacts aimed at sav-
ir.g the Maalot hostages.

official Israeli version related to

ambassador was to identify him-
self to the terrorists which never
The Foreign Ministry docu-
ment, however, confirmed the
role assigned to the Rumanian
Ambassador as stated in the gov-

that he was not supposed to han-

ists but to serve as their hostage

Rabbis Oppose
Alterations In
Law of Return
(JTA)The heads of both the
Conservative and Reform rabbin-
ical groups agreed here on May
7 that both organizations should
oppose changes in Lrael's Law of
R rn that would further weak-
en the status of Conservative and
Reform rabbis, particularly in the
areas of conversion.
Speaking at a session of the
74th annual convention of the
Rabbinical Assembly. Rabbi Ju-
dah Nadich, of New York, presi-
dent of the Conservative RA, and
Rabbi Robert I. Kahn of Houston.
Texas, president of the Reform
Central Conference of American
Rabbis, agreed that the Orthodox
rabbinate in Israel was attempt-
ing to use the present Israeli
internal political crisis to create
a religious monopoly, excluding
the Conservative and Reform rab-
THE PRESENT Israeli Law of
Return automatically gives Israeli
citizenship to all Jews emigrating
to Israel, including those convert-
ed to Judaism. The proposed
amendment would limit this cit-
izenship and right of return to
those converted only under Orth-
odox auspices.
Rabbi Nadich, stating that Con-
servative Judaism recognizes the
validity of halacha, noted, how-
ever, that "the flaw lies in the
fact that the Israel Orthodox
establishment would place in
their hands the right to determine
whether conversion by a rabbi in
the country, or outside of it, had
actua'.ly converted the candidate
in accordance with Jewish law.
'"If the rabbi were not Ortho-
dox, the fact would have at
once stamped his conversion pro-
cedure as invalid. Our position
continues to bethat the conver-
sion be performed only in accord-
ance with the Jewish law but let
the action be decisive, not the
doer of the action."
Meanwhile, three rabbis were
expelled May 7 from the Rabbin-
ical Assembly, the association of
Conservative rabbis. Rabbi Na-
dich said. The expulsions had

There's More Pressure On
Applicants For Visas
It has been previously men-
tioned that Soviet Jews no longer
apply for visas at the official
emigration office called OVIR.
They must now apply at the po-
lice station. Some imolications of
this change in procedure have
recently come to light.
For example, there is now no
way of checking on the number
of Jews applying, the number be-
ing refused, or the number be-
ing granted visas. This is because
in the past, there was always
someone a Jewish activist at
OVIR every day in every city who
was '"just looking arourvd." He
was able to count and record
statistics without harassment.

congregated, but now at the KGB
station, a totally different ele-
ment of people is being proc-
essed. And so a very humiliating
situation prevails.
Before President Nixon travels
to the Soviet Union, we have the
opportunity to voice our opinion"
about this treatment. If enough
of us send telegrams and letters,
if enough of us telephone the
White House and leave messages,
if enough of us care, then per-

GoldeilS Donate Schreck's Sisterhood Board
Sculpture Temple To Sinai
Sunday at 10 a.m.. Rabbi David
Shapiro and first vice president
Joseph Klciman of Temple Sinai,
Hollywood, will dedicate and '/i-
veil Michael Schreck's marble
sculpture "The Masada," in front
of the synagogue building with
Religious school and USY stu-
dents participating. The sculp-
ture was donated by Mr. and Mrs.
Gustav Golden of Hollywood.
Mr. Schreck, a painter and
sculptor residing in Hollywood,
was born in Austria and educated
in Vienna. His works are repre-
sented in many American, Israeli
and European collections, includ-
ing the Heckscher Museum, New
York: Museum of Fine Arts,
Lausanne, Switzerland; Ein Harod
Museum, Israel; Museum of Mod-
ern Art. Haifa; Yad Lebanim Mu-
seum. Petahtiqua. Israel; Charles
Guggenheim Collection, Paris,
France: K. L. Rothschild Collec-
tion. Chicago, 111.; and Roger Gim-
bel Collection, New York. He was
elected I ife Fellow in the Royal
Societv nf Arts, London.
"The Masada" is one of the
largest of Schreck's sculptures
and it displays the strength and
invincibility of Masada. the an-
cient fortress located on the
mountain top in Israel overlook-
ing the Dead Sea. The fortress,
built by King Herod some 2.100
yeais ago, later became the Jew-
ish stronghold against the Ro-
miring the final Roman attack
all those within (he fortress died
by their own hand rather than
submit to the invaders. "The
Masada" represents the same
endurance as the Masada of an-
cient times.
The. Yom Kippur War broke
out while Schreck was working
in Carrara, Italy on various
sculptures. The inspiration then
came to his mind that exactly

ancient Israel fought a similar
battle of survival on the heights
of Masada. This sculpture evolved
from the spirit that "Masada Shall
Not Fall Again."
The white maible for the 3.200
pound, 6'7" sculpture comes
from the same quarries in Car-
rara, Italy, where Michaelangelo
found the marble for his Moses
and David. "The Masada" signifies
the immense power of the Roman
army trying to reach tb? summit
of the mountain where the few
heroes of ancient Judea were
fighting tor their lives. In the
three years of building the ramp,
which Schreck shews symbolical-
ly in the winding ridge leading to
the top. the enemy managed to
reach the summit and tragedy
ended the resistance of the an-
cient heroes.
Originally Schreck said, he
planned to place his work in the
State of Israel. Upon further con-
sideration he felt that "The Masa-
da" could be a great source of
inspiration that "Israel Must
Live!" for the Jews of America.
Gustav Golden, a personal
friend of Schreck. volunteered to
he the donor of the work of art.
"The Masada" not only will beau-
tify the temple grounds but it
may possibly be the beginning of
a growing sculpture garden sym-
bolizing many signific>"t events
in the history of Israel, accord-
ing to Rahbi Shapiro.

Film Library In Miami Is
Being Established By ADL
The Florida Regional office of
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith will become the site
of a major film library on sub-
jects relating to the field of inter-
group relations.
In making the announcement
of the plan. Jack Kassewitz, chair-
man of the League's Regional
Board, said, "The ADL film
catalog represents one of the na-
tion's most comprehensive infor-
mational resources for both edu-
cators and the general public."
Films in the new library will
cover topics including Jews and
other minorities, Israel, prejudice
and discrimination, police-commu-
nity relations, and human rela-
tions training techniques in
schools and business.
George Bernstein, chairman of
ADL's Executive Committee, said
the agency is preparing to house
its film library in a new mulfc,
purpose screening room located
in its regional office facilities in
"We have over two hundred
titles in our 1974 audio-visual
catalog which contains films use*
ful for a broad range of age and
interest groups," Bernstein noted.
"With the new film library
housed in Miami we expect to in-
crease both the scope and effi*
ciency of ADL's ertensive multi
media services in Florida. The
new facility will also provide
more opportunities for our staff
to consult with teachers, clergy,
business and civic group pro-
grammers, by previewing our
films and advising on their most

The Price Goes Up
It was recognized from the beg.nning that the nego-
tiations between Israel and Syria for a disengagement
agreement would be more difficult than with Egypt and
would present more dangers for Israel.
Even before Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger
arrived in the Middle East, Israelis in and out of govern-
ment expressed pessimism about the chances for success
of his mission and fear about the possibility of undue
American pressure upon Israel.
Kissinger, upon arriving in Israel sought to allay those
fears by declaring, "I came to discuss not concessions but
security. I came not to exert pressure but to attempt to
reach lasting peace."
But the personal message President Nixone reportedly
sent Golda Meir urging Israel not to do anything that will
cause Kissinger's mission to fail is certainly a sign that
pressure is being used.
The United States has been taking steps to improve its
relations with the Arab countries.
While in the long run this should be welcomed, Amer-
ican Jewish leaders have voiced concern about whether
the U.S. is shirting its Mideast policy at the expense of
JVetc 'Even-HandecT Policy
Particularly w>rrying was the U.S. vote for the United
Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel for
its raid into Lebanese territory without mentioning the
terrorist massacre of 18 persons at Kiryat Shemona.
Prof. Hans Morgenthau, a leading expert on interna-
tional relations, warned some 1,000 oCnservative rabbis
at the Rabbinical Assembly convention that the Adminis-
tration's new "even-handed" policy for the Mideast may
be nothing more than a way of cracking down on Israel.
American support for Israel has been welcome and
gratifying along with U.S. arms and other aid for which
Israel pays hard cash. But as the Institute of Strategic
Studies has pointed out, Israel has become critically de-
pendent on the U.S. for the arms it needs to defend itself.
Now, as we had feared all along, the U.S. is upping
the price even more. What the price will be, the terms of
Syrian-Israeli withdrawal will surely tell.
ORT Convention Here
Delegates representing three regions and 24 chapters
of Women's American ORT, including many in Florida,
will gather for a convention at the Diplomat Hotel in Holly-
wood beginning May 21.
Our community joins in welcoming their deliberations
here and in saluting ORT's ongoing programs through
ORT's role, as a movement in Jewish life, supports vo-
cational education around the world.
Since its founding in 1880, the organization, whose
membership numbers upward of 110,000 strong today, has
dedicated itself to rehabilitation through helping people
help themselves.
In programs in Israel today, in North Africa and
throughout the Middle East hardly two decades ago, and
in a growing educational forums across our own nation
during the years ahead, ORT joins hands with the im-
poverished, the disadvantaged, the career and vocation-
ally uncertain to offer both answers and opportunities to
those in need.
Organization for Rehabilitation through Training
that is what ORT stands for. Upward of a million students
have been trained by ORT since its founding.
Whether they helped Israel through their technical
know-how during those first difficult days of the Ym Kippur
War, or whether they are the recipients of educational
assistance through American Affairs panels in high schools
and junior colleges across the United States today, ORT
continues to make its mark.
npHE FEAR for me in Europe
1 is not.that there have been so
manv changes in government in
such" a short time, but that the
change* themselves' represent an
archaic return to European na-
tional self-interest.
The experiment with a "United
Europe" beginning after World
War II never did strike me as
being more than tentative
something the Europeans felt
they ought to try, not something
they really wanted to try. There
never was any conviction in it.
THE HITLER era represented
the worst mismanagement of Eu-
ropean affairs ever. Even to bi-
goted, shortsighted, chauvinistic
states, it was a slap in the face to
humanity gone ape.
In the face of it. how could
Europe continue to press forward
its kosher pig's foot as the cradle
of western civilization?
For the sake of Europe's
image, it was necessary that
something, anything, be tried to
show a determined effort that
the worst of Europe not be per-
mitted to lay a barbaric shadow
across the best of Europe not
ever again.
AND SO, in the first quarter-
century after the great war, the
very civilized and cultivated la-
dies and gentlemen of the vaunt-
ed European community made
passing stabs at uniting them-
selves with an eye toward know-
ing war no more.
But it was pretty easy then. To
begin with, Europeans feared a
Russian assault on their increas-
ingly well-fed bourgeois pocket-
books. It was easy under the cir-
cumstances to be united united
in the principle that Uncle Sam
should shoulder all of the mili-
tary burdens attendant to their
WHEN THINGS got better,
when Russia's embarrassing tech-
nological ignorance slowed down
her ambition to gobble up every-
one in sight not already enslaved
by the glorious workers' revolu-
tion, the "united Europeans" sud-
denly began to fear the impact of
Uncle Sam's presence in Europe
on their "unity."
How does it look (now that
there was nothing much to be
afraid of) that American military
forces still "occupy" us? they
Britain, the most severely smit-
ten in World War II because she
had the most to give up and
therefore fought the hardest, was
civilized Europe's first victim in
answer to the question.

well-painted strumpet, was the
least smitten because it is in the
nature of a strumpet not to fight

est agony only to worry about

And so France, who gave the
least in the great war, in fact
nothing, suddenly resolved that
3ritain should not be admitted
into the showcase of Europe's
new "unity," the European Eco-
nomic Community.
Why? Because, the worst smit-
ten, Britain depended upon Uncle
Sam the most and therefore was
a puppet of Uncle Sam, or so the
argument went in the halls of the
AND WHAT kind of a United
States of Europe would the EEC
be with the minions of Wash-
ington in its midst?
When the British let it be
known that they weren't sure
about the EEC in any case,
whether they wanted to belong or
not to belong, the very civilized
French responded with their first
show of national enthusiasm
since the Battle of the Marne.

THEY HAD surrendered with-
out shame almost before World
War II got going. They were
routed in Southeast Asia in 1934
and walked away with their tail

D7 IN behalf of a "United Eu-
rope." the French couldn't "get"
the British to prove their new-
found machismo, they would at
least "get" the Americans.

integrity of the American dollar.

its parts for narrow self-interest

Besides, the apologists reason-

so big or enviable anyway.
But the French assault on ;h

Where Your Money Goes...
Jewish Famly Service of Broward County
More and more Jewish families each year seek out the coun-
seling services offered by the professionally trained family coun-
seling staff of Jewish Family Service of Broward County. Some
600 families were assisted in 1973.
Families who seek help are as varied as the problems they
bringmarital discord, parent-child problems, adolescent rebel-
lion, physical and mental illness, drug abuse, budgeting and
economic planning. In addition, large groups of elder citizens
require specialized services. Jewish Family Service also screens
applicants for the Jewish Home for the Aged in Miami. The
Family Service's child care program provides adoption and foster
home placements.
The JFS constantly reassesses and expands its programs to
meet the escalating social service needs of Broward County's
growing Jewish population. When appropriate, other community
resources arc utilized in meeting the individual family's needs.
Fees for professional counseling are determined on the basis
of family size and income, but no one is refused help because of
inability to pay.
Jewish Family Service is a beneficiary agency of the Jewish
Welfare Federation of Hollywood, the UnKed Fund of Broward
County, and the North Broward Jewish Federation.

As publicized every day in all
forms of medianewspapers, ra-
dio and televisionit's tough to
"kick a habit."
Smoking, drugs and alcohol top
the list; however, mine doesn't
fall into any of these categories.
To explain how paranoid I am
on this subject is to tell you of
last Saturday.
I'd driven to Miami to pick up
my girlfriend, Sylvia, who was
visiting from North Carolina.
We'd just left her mother-in-
law's home, headed for Ft. Laud-
erdale and didn't have too much
time to spare as people were wait-
ing for us.
When I jammed on the brakes,
she suffered a mild whiplash.
I was used to sudden stops.
"I didn't see anything in your
way," she said.
Pointing to a sign on a tree,
I replied, "Garage Sale."
"What do you need?" she ask-
We then wpnt to the sale.
The only thing I liked was the
hobby horse. I just couldn't fig-
ure out what to do with it.
In the past, I've devised in-
genious uses for things I don't
When the children were small,
they received marvelous Chan-

er's ingenious paranoia.
I bought Barbie a pair of
mounted steer horns....
To my way of thinking at the
time, a girl who won't hang up
her clothes would at least hook
them on steer horns.
She didn't. In fact, it always
embarrassed her to have to ex-
plain to girlfriends exactly what
the thing on the wall was in the
first place.
That was the year I'd bought
Brad a six foot long stuffed shark
for his wall. (Gift wrapping it
was hell. The fins kept tearing
the paper!)
His friends too asked for a
definition of the decor; however,
my son was showing early signs
of ingenuity for he'd answer, "It's
my piggy bank."
He'd then demonstrate how his
small hands could fit through the
myriad of sharp teeth where his
money was hidden.
An adult hand would end up

also hooked at an early age as
they usually accompanied me on
"my rounds."

Why, anyone would buy it just
to say they found something for

steak tartar recipes which un-

QUESTION: Who was Mendel
Beilis? Rose Klapper, Hal-
ANSWER Menahem Mendel
Beilis (1874-1934) was a victim
of a ritual murder libel in Rus-
sian Ukraine.
On March 20, 1911, the muti-
lated body of Andrei Yuschinsky,
a twelve year old boy, was found
in a cave on the outskirts of
The Czarist regime and reac-
tionary press immediately launch-
ed a vicious anti-Jewish campaign.
Mendel Beilis, the superintendent
of a brick kiln, was arrested July
21, 1911. on trumped up charges
that he perpertrated this murder
on behalf of the entire Jewish
population because the boy's
blood was needed by Jewish peo-
ple for ritual purposes.
For over two years Beilis was
tortured unmercifully in jail but
still maintained his innocence.
The Czarist regime, in spite of
overwhelming evidence that the
boy was murdered by the Che-
beriak gang, and protests from
scientists, clergymen and men of
letters from throughout the
world, affirming that the blood
libel was baseless, nevertheless
placed Beilis on trial for the
The trial lasted from Sept. 25
to Oct. 28, 1913. Beilis was de-
fended by outstanding and very
able lawyers of Moscow, St.
Petersburg and Kiev, both Jews
and non-Jews.
Reactionary anti-Semitic organ-
izations led by the Chornaya

stigated the blood libel as a way
to prepare and stage pogroms all

posed of simple Russian peas-

Russia for Eretz Yisroel, the

I have recently finished reading a book entitled "Travels Through
Jewish America" written by Harry Golden. The book leaves many
things to be desired; however, it is written with a type of humor and
candor that has placed Mr. Golden in the history of Jews in America.
As many will recall, Mr. Golden published a newspaper called
"The Carolina Israelite." He has also written a number of success-
ful books such as"Only in America" and "Two Cents Plain." These
books were basically excerpts from the long history of his newspapers.
This, latest book discusses the history and innuendoes of many of
the Jewish communities of Americabig cities and *>mall. Some of the
"Thoughts Mr. Golden found important enough to include in his book
might be viewed by many as trite. However, in his own style, he does
present a synopsis of personalities which exemplify particular com-
munities and some histories of those communities.
Only one of those communities that he discusses is devoid of his-
tory. It is a community that grows up the sides of mountains with
massive freeways connecting all its partsan area that has been de-
veloped within the last thirty years and one which is so vast and
expansive little sense of community exists. It is located on the west
coast of the United States.
No mention is made of any Florida communities.
I am not a humorist nor could I possibly write in Mr. Golden's
Style, but if I were to present some of my insights into the South
Florida area from Palm Beach south and the West Coast of Florida
as we'll, I would characterize the movement with a similarity to the
great eastern European migration to the United States... masses of
people moving to a land of milk and honey, each bringing with them,
their cultures and traditions. In a way, it could be symbolic of the
exodus from Egypt.
Few people are indigenous to this area. The mature adults who
have retired from businesses and professions "up north" have moved
to this area for a better life and for the enjoyment of pleasures they
feel were denied in the communities they came from. They have been
willing to forsake their roots, their homes and their families to seek
a new life; hopefully, one of good health and pleasure. The younger
families who have moved here sought economic opportunity in an area
of tremendous population growth where many new services are needed.
In many cases, they also have left behind family and friends; how-
ever, they bring with them life styles and patterns which they have
grown up with.
What appears to be interesting is that in attempting to establish
themselves in this community, whether young or mature, most people
have changed their life styles. I think the reasons for this are obvious.
The ties and obligations they once had no longer exist. The climate
-,:^>etmits more outdoor living. The balmy breezes, sun and warmth al-
low many activities on a year round basis which were not available in
the great northern metoropolis.
And- so* we have new, fast growing communities without tradition
and, in-many cases, few of the services and programs found in more
established communities. If we equate this to the European migra-
Jiqns, we will find that it takes at least one generation to establish
jijflew culture, a new community and a new way of thinking. In that
"generation there will be mature adults, our young families will pro-
duce new families and the community will become more stable.
The exodus from Egypt was a beginning and there were forty
years of wandering in the desert before a Jewish community became
established. 1 certainly hope it will not take that time for our entire
area to do it. However, it does take time to develop relationships, to
establish one"s self and to feel a esprit de corpsevery effort must
be made to develop it as soon as possible.
We have many people with many ideas, some working in different
directions. There are many factors which are unifying usthere are
some that will always cause division. We now must become an amal-
gamation. As I see it, hopefully, we will all work together to insure
continuity and quality of life in this area. ____

Suzie Is A 'Carrier'
There, are two startling things
which glare at you when you walk
into the Errol Rosen home for
the first time.
You're tempted to focus each
eyeball in a different direction.
To the right of you sits a
tremendous living room. Totally
devoid of furniture.
There*s marvelous wall-to-wall
carpeting and an elegant crystal
chandelier but if you were in-
vited to sit down, you'd have to
use a mirage.
THE OTHER startling feature
is Mrs. Rosen herself. Or rather,
her hair.
Suzie Rosen, a young woman in
her twenties, is totally grey.
The young face framed by the
grey hair is mesmerizing.
There's explanations for both
First, the living room. After
much thought, the Rosens have
decided it's not going to be the
"living room after all. They also
own a large piece of property
next to their home and when that
is built to their specifications, the
living room will be located some-
wheie over there.
That's when the furniture starts

thought I was a baby sitter.
ONCE HIS fears were assuaged,
his nose wiped and "Sesame

set in the adjoining family room,
he was fine.
It was then Suzie Rosen to'd
me about her stunning grey hair.
She'd had it since she was eight!
Premature grey genes, not blue
lean-, run in her whole family.
The Rosen son. Michael, now five,
was found to have a few strands
at the time of his first haircut.
Suzie Rosen's family earned
their hair C I ring honestly, if
not genetically, for they have
shared a personal heartache.
Her sister's son was horn a
Tay-Sach-: child and died as a
re nit of the disease.
He lived to a^e two.
'"It affects a whole family emo-
tionally." she said softly.
AS A RESULT of her nephew'.-
birth and subsequent death. Suzie
became involved in the history
and study of the disease which is
100 times more prebalent in
Jewish families than non-Jewish.
Since she and Errol were ex-
pecting their second child at the
time, they sou'-'.ht the Tay-Sachs
test, a simple blood test, in Hol-
lywood. They couldn't find any-
one to do it.
They finally reached a physi-
c'mi at the \'>Uman Clinic in
Miami who could.
Suzie was found to be a carrier.
Both mother and father must
be carriers of the disease.
"Thank G-d. Errol wasn't," she
She adds, "Some of our chil-
dren will be carriers and if they
marry another carrier, they'll
nave a Tay-Sachs child. The
snouso will have to be tested
BECAUSE OF the Rosens' in-
ability to obtain that test in Hol-
lywood, she works tirelessly today
to provide these facilities locally.
Mrs. Rosen is chairwoman of
the Tay-Sachs Testing Program in
South Broward.
Accompanied by a young wom-
an who has given birth and lost
a child to the disease, they speak
before organizations, temples and
anyone who will listen to them

secrc-t." -

torney, performs actively in the
Hollywood Jewish community as
a member of the Jewish Welfare
Federation's Young Leaders
Council. He cochaired their 1974
campaign telethon this year.
"His feelings are deeper now."
Suzie says. "It was either a movie
or a .speaker thnt got to him and
he became involved."

As the fiscal year draws to a
close, many Jewish youth groups
are beginning to prepare for the
1974-75 year with annual elec
tions and installation dinners. I
would like to present some of the
Hollywood organizations and their
new leadership.
Tempr? Solel Youth Group,
which is affiliated with NFTY,
National Federation of Tempi*
Youth of the Reform movement,
held its elections Thursday eve-
ning. April 25. New officers are
Scott item, president; Nancy
Richman. vice president: Judv
Matalon. secretary; and Pam
Beaver, treasurer.
Scott has announced that the
group will hold its installation
dinner June 1 at Williamson's
Restaurant in Fort Lauderdalo.
Jeff Bauman, founding president
and president for the last three
years, will serve as installing of-
ficer and master of ceremonies.
Temple Solel is a Liberal Tem-
ple which is in the midst of build-
ing at Sheridan Street and 52nd
Avenue. The youth group has a
membership of seventy and count-
ing. .. If you are interested in
joining, you may call any of the
above named people or the tem-
ple office. The president says
that he hopes this year to organ-
ize the group to meet the needs
of its members and that they
hope to raise money to support
themselves, their temple and
their community.

B'nai B'rith Youth Organization
(BBYO) is an international Jew-
ish youth movement which
stresses service not only to the
Jewish community, but to the
community as a whole, to our
country' and to the world com-
munity. It is based on a five fold
program; "Service, Citizenship,
Fellowship. Jewish Heritage, and
BBYO is divided into two
groups: BBG, (B'nai B'rith Girls)
and AZA (Aleph Zadek Aleoh),
the boys' croup. Hold it!!! That
doesn't mean that BBYO is sepa-
rated completely! BBG and AZA
groups often have activities to-
gether but their goals differ in
some areas, which is only nat-
ural ...
Hollywood has seven BBG
groups and three AZA groups.
Only three BBYO groups have had
elections up until now. The rest
will follow in coning weeks.
B'nai Israel AZA's Michael Job-
love succeeds Michael Levin.
(B'nai Israel AZA was Holly-
wood's first AZA/) Good lurk to
Mike as president. B'nai Israel is
for young men between the ages
of 15-17. Masada AZA, whose age
group is the same as B'nai Israel,
has recently elected Jack Nadei-
man as president.
Tikvah BBG has elected the
following officers: Lesl;e Efros,
president; Jodi Miller. Barb Mil-
ler and Mindy Sabra, vice presi-
dents; Jane Frey. corresponding
secretary; Ann Beth Talbert, Re-
cording secretary: Leslie Snydcr,
treasurer; Amy Roberts, chaplain;
and Shelly Foster, parliamentar-
ian. Anna Marie Richman is ad-
visor. Tikvah BBG is for girls in
grades 8 and 9. If interested in
joining, you may call any of tha
above named people.
As this newspaper does not
print telephone numbers and ad-
dresses, any information which
you would like regarding any
youth group in Hollywood can be
obtained by calling the Federa-
tion office, 921-8810 and asking
for me. I will be glad to assist
in any way possible.
To those groups which have
elected officers for the coming
year and to those about to do so.
I wish you a year of continued
success and hope you will achieve
all the goals which you have set
for yourselves.

I would sincerely like to honor
and congratulate two very well
known young people in this com-
munity who recently graduated
from Nova High School. Steven
Brodie, outstanding senior of
Nova, founding president of the
late Jewish Youth Council, has
set a model for the Jewish youth
of Hollywood. It is difficult to
name all the honors Steve has
achieved, the goals he has reach-
ed, the work he has done, not
only for his school, community
or family, but for Jewish people
all over the world. He has accom-
plished what few will ever at-
tempt, and I would like to wish
him the best of luck in even-
thing that he see' Steve, Mazcl Tov!!!
Scott Snyder. also a past presi
dent of the Youth Council, has in
only a short period of time, done
much for the Jewish community
of Hollywood, and I would like
to thank him for everything. I
worked very closely with Scott
for a year and a half and you
just can't express all that time
in a few words of tribute. Thanks.
Scott, for everything and good
luck. Both Steve and Scott will
be attending Tulane University.

comment on the Maariv report.
The officials noted that it was
contrary to accepted practice
to comment on messages be-

implication was that Mrs. Meir
had in fact received a message
from Nixon.
According to Maariv. the
message was "as always" writ-
ten in a friendly and respectful
manner, but its intent clearly
was that Israel should cooperate
with Kissinger. Maariv claimed
that the Nixon message and Is-
rael's appreciation of Kissinger's
understanding of its security
problems were two elements
that persuaded the government

plan represented a formula that
would meet American requests
without damaging Israeli se-

Nobel Winner Says
Basic Human Rights
Are Being Violated
ic human rights are being vio-
lated on every continent and in
every region of the world, a No-
bel Prize-winning authority on
international law declared here.
These violations, he added,
must arouse a particularly strong
reaction from Jews, who were the
first people in the modern world
to teach that the importance of
the individual and his right to
life were the fundamental values
of civilization.
RENE CASSIN, president of
the International Institute of
Human Rights, headquartered in
Paris, and also president of the
Alliance Israelite Universelle,
made his remarks in the keynote
speech of a three-day colloquium
on "Judaism and Human Rights"
at McGill University here.
The international meeting,
which brought together more
than 100 judges, lawyers, acad-
emicians, political scientists and
human rights specialists from
the United States, Canada,
France, Mexico and Israel, was
expected to be the first in a se-
ries that will examine the con-

Israel Aid
The inflationary process in the
United States apparently will re-
sult in $155.8 million less for
Israel than it had anticipated it
would receive from the $2.2 bil-
lion in emergency aid Congress
approved last December at the
request of President Nixon.
This emerged after the Senate
Armed Services Committee in-
formed the Defense Department
that $115.8 million of the $458.5
million in procurement author-
ization that the Pentagon was
provided should be financed by
the transfer of the $115.8 million
from the emergency aid earmark-
ed for Israel.
THE $155.8 million, a commit-
tee source told the JTA, repre-
sents the difference in cost be-
tween what was originally spent
to buy the material sent to Israel
and the amount it will now cost
for the Pentagon to replace them

Africa of imposing dictatorships
under the pretexts that they are

luxury that is difficult to extend
to allegedly uncultured peoples."
He also pointed to the fact that
tribal conflicts in Africa have re-

phenomena as drought have been
exploited for the "personal en-

Former Swiss Max Sc
Filming Anti-Nazi Opus
t*|AXIMILIAN SCHELL, who in his own picture, 'The Pedes-
than." transposed a tragedy of immense scope into visual
terms and explored the collective guilt of the Germans riming
the period of Nazism, now has portiayed on the screen one of
the most vicious men of the Third Reich, the factual character
of SS Captain Eduard Roschmann, commandant of the concen-
tration camp at Riga, d'.rectiy responsible for the murder of
80.000 Jews between 1941 and 1945.
BASED ON the book. 'The Odessa File" (with "Odessa'' an
abbreviation of "Organization der Ehemaligen SS-Angehoerige"),
by Frederick Forsyth. author of "The Day of the Jackal." the mo-
tion picture was produced by British filmr.-.aker John Wooif who
was also responsible for the screen version of Forayth'a ear.ier
Schell, who returned to Hollywood again for the Academy
Awaids presentation, told me that pictures such as "The Pedes-
trian" and "The Odessa File" must be made because we should
never forget the crimes of the past.
IN SPITE of his many military and militaristic roles. Schell
is a mild mannered man who abhors violence in any foim.
The son of Swiss author H?rmann Ferdinand Schell. born
in Vienna in 1930, he moved with all of the family to Switzer-
land in 1938 when Austria was annexed by Hitler because his
father was on the list of active anti-Nazis.
He assures us that he is Swiss in his whole thinking and
whole political concept. It is, therefore, no accident that he
photographed much of "The Pedestrian" on location in Israel, a
country he identifies with the personal freedom so cherished
in his own democratic Switzerland.
THOUGH "Odessa File" is a horrifying expose of wartime
atrocities and of recent plans of the secret Nazi organization to
destroy Israel with warheads filled with concentrated cultures
of bubonic plagues and irradiated cobalt 60 from military bases
in the Near East, the book is a best-seller in Germany where,
according to Schell. the picture was filmed with the cooperation
of the authorities on location at the Elbe River in Hamburg and
in the Geiselgasteig Studios near Munich.
Maximilian Scheil sees in the structure of "The Odessa File"
the classical conflict of Hamlet" seeking revenge for the mur-
der of his father. The hero of the yarn, Peter Miller, a 29-year-old
German who becomes the nemesis of Eduard Roschmann, is por-
trayed b) Jon Voight, with Maria Schell essaying the part of the
young man's mother.
ior transmitted from generation
to generation by the-society in
which one lives."
This is especially true in the
Arab society which is patriarchal
and is based upon the extended
family. While there are Arab
Jews and Arab Christians, the au-
thor deals only with Arab Mos-
lems who speak Arabic.
ONE CANNOT understand the
Moslem unless one understands
the nuances of their language and
that, according to Edward Atiyah,
"It is a characteristic of the Arab
mind to be swayed more by
words than by ideas, and more by
ideas than by facts." Their society
is a "shame society" as ably de-
scribed by Sania Hamady in her
book, "Temperament and Char-
iKovcrt *^ectai
acter of the Arabs."
This book. Patai's and most
others have been partially dated
by the events of the Yom Kippur
This does not mean that "The
Arab Mind" should be ignored.
On the contrary, it still possesses
great validity with respect to the
masses of the populations the
fellahins, the nomads, the rural
people and the illiterates.
IT IS the governmental leaders
who are undergoing a change.
Many of the leaders are becoming
Westernized, Islam is being slow-
ly undercut in its baleful all-per-
vading influence, and technology
is being learned.
It is impossible to prognosti-
cate to wnai extent me gcu
ties stated by Patai will govern
the acts and conduct of the men
such as Sadat, Hussein, Assad
and the Lebanese ruling groups.
The book is important for an
understanding of the past and of
the masses, many of whom have
not yet entered the 20th century.
THE AUTHOR'S chapters on
sex. family, religion, language,
and nationalism and his explana-
tion of the relationship between
the Arab world and the West are
sound. He writes lucidly.
We regret trie absence of a
glossary and the inclusion of the
comparison between the Arab
world and Spanish America. The
latter can be omitted from future
editions without impairing the
otherwise excellence of the book.
Is it Enough to Become Religious
|.)EOPIJ2 ARE on the move. A few months ago.
Sen. Harold Hughes, of Iowa, announced he was
leaving the Senate- to give all his time to religious
activities. More recently. Miss Elizabeth J. McCor-
mack. president of Manhattanville College for eight
years, announced she was leaving the Society jf the
Sacred Heart.
"I want to commit my life to Christ totally
thiough prayer and meditation." Sen. Hughes said as
he went forth to give his talents to International
Christian Leadership and the Prayer Breakfast
AN EX-ALCOHOLIC, onetime truck driver and
steam fitter, Harold Hughes had gone from the gov-
ernor's chair in Iowa to the Senate, an outspoken
liberal, obviously concerned with the plight of the
dis,io sessed.
"I intend to identify with the poor, to seek
solidarity with the Third World." E.izabeth McCor-
mack said as she bade farewell to both academe
and her Catholic order.
And then she aded: "The question is whether
the community is organized to meet the needs of
the world, or whether the central thing is the reli-
gious life of the Order's members."
MISS McCORMACK, for 21 years a devotee of
her Order, will undoubtedly make valuable contri-
butions to humanity in her new role en the staff
of the Rockefeller Brothers" Fund.
Looking about her. she might have caught the
headline -Nuns Fo m Lobby Group to Help
Fight Utility Rate Increase." heralding the program
of a coalition of Catholic sisters, led by Sister
Ailcne Maries of the Social Action Conference of
the 000 Sisters of Mercy.
And pulling up alongside Sen. Hughes and
Johnny Cash is Charles W. Colson. longtime advisor
to President Nixon.
Colson. who has never denied he said "I would
walk over my grandmother if necessary," apparently
to achieve the reelection of the President, has
stated that he has found a new relationship witt
Christ and will now pray for those cynics whe
doubt his commitment and seem puzzled by hi
jump to piety.
Whether Miss McCormack as a non-religious
does a better job for members of minority group;
and others who slug it out against adversity or
whether Sen. Hughes. Johnny Cash, and Charlie
Colson make a more shining mark in a religious
framework doesn't really matter a great deal.
The goal is clear cut: we had better feed the
hungry, clothe the naked, and house the homeless
with more speed and greater determination or face
prolife:ating revolutions certain to demolish civili-
zation as we know it.

Portugal's Jews: Study in History of Crisis
What's Wrong With
From Cilv of Minsk
yHE ART Students League is
the leiidin.; school of its field
in New York, and Morris Cantor,
one of the top American artists
who recently died, was for years
one of its instructors.
In a tribut" to Cantor in the
League's publication, we are told
of Cantor's achievement as a
paniter, how he helped develop
many of America's great artists
and of his general uniqueness.
THE ARTICLE then goes on to
say, "Everything about him was
unusual, even where he came
from. Who ever heard of an artist
coming from Minsk?"
It was this last part which gave
me a bit of an electric shock.
Why shouldn't^ an artist come
from Minsk? Was anything the
matter with Minsk?
Mare Chagall, who is a world
famous artist, came from Vitebsk,
. JtuasiiL and Minsk could make
four Vitebsks. The population of
Minsk is around a million.
Vitebsk, less than 200.0*0.
HOW MUCH different Is Pinsk
fr.m Minsk, and yet a great sci-
entist and the Washington of Is
rael. its first President, Dr
Chaim Weizmann, came from
Pinsk. Originally, Weizmann
came from an even less propi-
tious place.
He was born in Motele. about
the size of a half a bar of soap;
yet Weizmann, who was to have
many dealings in the realm of in-
ternational politics, used to say
he learned all he knew about
diplomacy' in Motele.
. DAVID SARNOFF was born in
Minsk. He was one of the build-
ers of the radio and television in
dustry. That required some art.
We tend to think why shouldn't
Minsk have a more civilized name
like Dubuque or Paducah, forget-
ting that these really are Indian
names. No doubt someone asked
how could any great man come
out of Hodgenville, Kentucky?
Yet Lincoln was born there.
PORTUGAL'S revolt draws attention to that
country's Jewish community whose history
has been marked my many crises from '.he time
when, under King Alfonso Henriques I i 1139-85)
they enjoyed autonomy, through the era of the
Inquisition, the subsequent years of persecutions,
then, during the Nazi period, when Jews cou.d
nettle in Portugal temporarily while seeking ref-
uge from the Hitler terror.
IT IS estimated that there are less than 700
Jew- in Portugal today, most of them living in
Lisbon, and some 60 or more in Opo to.
There is a synagogue in Lisbon ;;t 50 rua
Alexandre Herculano. and another one is func-
tioning in Oporto at the Comiminidade Usraelita
de Oporto at 50 rua Guerra Junq.iiin. Neither
has a rabbi, and there haven't been functioning
spiritual leaders there in many years.
Kindergartens have been organized for the
very young, and those desiring a Jewish education
must depend upon private instruction. There is
a shochet in Lisbon, and some kosher meat is
made available.
FULLY A third are Sephard:.- Jews, ard
the others are immigrants who came after the
Nazi persecutions.
Many thousands of Jews found refuge from
Nazism in Portugal from 1933, prior to their
emigration el ewhere.
While two kings, Joao I (1385-1433) and
Joao II (1481-95) refused to cooperate in the
anti-Jewish policies that had been enacted in
neighboring Spain, King Manuel (1405-1521) sub-
mitted to the Inquisition and by a decree issued
Dec. 4 1496. ordered the expulsion of the Jews
to take effect the folowing October.
That's when Jewish children were forcibly
converted and 20.000 adult Jews were enslaved.
THE MANUEL Deciee also led to the mas-
sacre of 2.000 Marranos New Christians in
The end of the Inquisition was marked by a
partial return of some Jews to Portugal in the
1820, and 1830;, and the most dramatic occur-
rence was the discovery, in 1917. by a mining
engineer. Samuel Schwartz, of a colony of New
Christians, near the village of Belmonte. They
had retained their Jewish memories and con-
tinued some Jewish practices.
The sensation then was the formal declara-
tion by a Portuguese Jew of Marrano descent,
Captain Arturo Carlos de Barros Basto.
Lisbon's and Oporto's Jews are small in
number, but they have formed a close relation-
ship with world Jewry.
7L1ERE HAS been a Keren Kaycmet (Jew-
ish National Fund) representative there, M.

Thus it is Israel mainly that helps form a
link v ith a community, once strong, then de-
stroyed, revived when a measure of hospitality
was provided for escape?s from Hitlerism.
Those few in Portugal who retain a knowl-
edge of Hebrew are heard to affirm "nezakh Yis-
rael lo yeshaker" the eternity of Israel lives
even under dire circumstances.
