velopment of not only Holly-
lwood but also Hallandale. Mira-

new economic program intended

Of halting galloping inflation.

FINANCE Minister Yehoshua
abinowitz explained the new
measures in a radio address last
He said that while Israel's
economy had returned to normal
"quite rapidly" after the Yom
Kippur War, proving its intrinsic
strength, "we have returned too
fast to a regular life style but
conditions do not allow it."
He referred to the immense
defense needs which, he said
"dwarfed" the pre-war needs.
"We have to make sure that
the State has the money which
is needed for building the armed
forces along with essential eco-
nomic activities," Rabinowitz said.
THE GOVERNMENT'S new
plan received a generally favor-
able reception from economists
and industrialists although res-
ervations were expressed over
whether it will work as intended.
The Histadrut Central Commit-
tee met to consider the govern-
ment's proposal for waiving half
of the 20 percent cost-of-living
allowance payable to wage earn-
ers beginning with this month's

Not Just Soviet Jews
Hardly has President Nixon returned from his summit
meeting with Leonid Brezhnev in Moscow, than plans have
been announced as trial balloons that the President intends
making a trip to Tokyo very shortly.
And then a swing through Europe right after that to
assure our NATO allies that the United States did nothing
in Moscow to which they could possibly object.
All of this keeps President Nixon moving so swiftly
that no one has a chance to talk to him about the pro-
ioundly important ideological issues dividing the U.S. and
the Soviet Union and whether he brought these issues up
with Mr. Brezhnev.
We have in mind, for example, the question of exit
from the Soviet Union, and we join exiled Soviet writer
Alexandr Solzhenitsyn in declaring that this does not
necessarily mean just Jews.
The President is a Fast-Mover
There aie many Soviets, Jew and non-Jew, who suffer
the oppression of Soviet dictatorship and who would like to
opt out for freedom.
We have in mind the Soviet's cancelling of the inter-
national meeting of scientists in Moscow during the Nixon
We have in mind the hunger strike of physicist Andre
Sakharov to bring to the President's attention the Soviet
Union's 'reatment of dissident intellectuals the billeting
of dissidents and activists to Siberia or to insane asylums
on ine pretext mat anyone critical of the Soviet Union
must, necessarily, be crazy.
Did the President mention ANY of this to Mr. Brezhnev
during all those chummy, chatty, one-way talks that ap-
parently gave the Soviets all the commercial agreements
they wanted and us none of the military agreements we
say we wanted?
More than a week after his return, the President hasn't
said. From Russia to Maine to Key Biscayne to Washing-
ton to Tokyo to Europe and who knows where else
after that? He's simply moving too busy to concern him-
self with such things.
A resolution urging the need for continued Christian-
Jewish dialogue despite differences on public issues which
was adopted by the National Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council at its recent plenary in Detroit deserves
careful attention by the American Jewish community.
The NJCRAC noted that although the Catholic Church,
for example,, holds different opinions from most of the Jew-
ish community on such issues as abortion and govern-
mental aid to parochial schools, the public debate on these
questions must be continued "with mutual respect and
It might also be said in respect to these two specific
issues that the debate within the Jewish community had
best be conducted on a civilized level, since many Ortho
dox Jews agree with Catholics on abortion and aid to
Then, there is also the question of Christian indiffer-
ence to issues that concern Jews. Since the Six-Day War of
1967, and particularly since the Yom Kippur War, the
American Jewish community has rightfully expressed its
indignation over the lack of concern by many Christian
leaders toward the survival of Israel.
Some Christian leaders have expressed outright hos-
tility toward the Jewish State. Christians who want a con-
tinuance of the dialogue with Jews must be made to un-
derstand that the survival of Israel is the overwhelming
concern of Jews.
At the same time, as the NJCRAC resolution pointed
out, Jewish complaints of Christian "insensitivity" to Jewish
concerns are matched by strong Christian feelings of Jew-
ish indifference to issues which Christians place a high
MEAN no personal offense
to Rabbi Tibor Stern, of the
Jacob C. Cehn Community
Synagogue, but that ordination
he passed out last week in the
name of the Orthodox Beth Din
is an absolute abomination.
It is forged in the crucible
of Watergate and fired by the
flames of a racist mentality.
Too strong? Well, consider:
RABBI STERN would have
local Hebrew schools "keep
complete and confidential rec-
ords on all students concerning
their Jewish identity."
This would necessitate a par-
allel set of confidential records
"in case of mixed marriages or
"Mixed" and "dubious" are the
key words in Rabbi Stern's lexj.
con. They are a euphemism for
non Orthodox, sod the second set
of confidential records would
therefore determine whether the
children from such marriages,
statistically analyzed and tabu-
lated in the first set of Rabbi
Stern's secret records, are in fac
Jewish at all.
TO EQUIP him with perhapi
the ultimate means of determin-
ing whether or not one is com-
pletely kosher by his standards,
the Rabbi has called for yet i
third set of secret records.
This set would keep a tabula-
tion on circumcisions, that is to
say, documented proof that they
were performed by "a competent
As a check on this fail-safe
factor. Rabbi Stern has asked hit
Orthodox colleagues to require
a certificate of Millah from can-
didates for Bar MiUvah.
Only a Mohel okayed by Rabbi
Stern and his Beth Din as com-
petent" would get the candidate-
past this test.
IT SEEMS to me that we are
victimized enough these days by
persons who kept secret record!
in order to manipulate the na-
tion into an image acceptable U
themselves on the basis that any
other image would not only be
unacceptable but downright dan-
gerous to the national security.
That is what Rabbi Stem is do-
ing. He is ordaining that the
Orthodox rabbinate rifle the
hearts and minds of young boyi
and girls, and their parents, for
information that ought to be no-
body's business but their own.
AND HE is ordaining that ibii

Crippled Khantsis Makes it Back
By ARNOLD BRUNER
A break in the monotony of
his ordeal came on January 17,
1973, when Yaakov Khantsis was
told his family would be visiting
him. They had travelled six days
from their home for the first real
visit in nearly a year. They were
to be allowed 15 minutes.
Khantsis, who had weighed 112
kilos when he was arrested, was
now reduced to 54 kilos. To make
him look more presentable, his
keepers steamed his face, reason-
ing that exposure to the frigid
outdoors would give him some
THE VISIT was cancelled. The
family was told the prisoner was
But on the same day. a medical
team visited Khantsis in his cell,
where they examined his legs
under anaesthetic. They pro-
nounced him an invalid "of the
first category." From that day,
his diet was improved: he was
fed once a day.
On March 19, 1973, Khantsis
was removed to prison 231/16,
which was a crude hospital for
the insane. Since the time of his
first confinement, he had spent a
total of 18 months alone in a cell.
For the previous nine months,
with the exception of one prison
transfer and one medical exami-
nation, he had not risen from the
cell floor. Hig unfeeling legs
were now permanently bent back
from the months of lying in a

were wooden planks without mat-
tresses. Khantsis' first "treat-
ment" was an injection of "truth
serum" and a KGB-type interro-
gation by a doctor.
"I DONT remember" what 1
told him," Khantsis said, "but
some time after he left, they took
me to what looked like a bath-
room. It was freezing winter and
THIS IS the last of a three-
part series on the "treat-
ment" of dissident Jews
seeking exit from the Soviet
Union. Yaakov Khantsis was
imprisoned by the Russians
on May 18, 1970, after ap-
plying for a permit for him-
self and his family to leave
for Israel. On Mar. 7, 1974 al-
most four years later, he was
granted permission but

open to the outside. They forced
me into a staitjacket and put me

Unknown to him, they were
about to straighten his legs.
The attendants grasped each
leg, and with electric suddenness,
wrenched them straight. The pa-
tient fainted. They threw cold
water on him.
HE WAS returned to his board.
He lay on his stomach for two
weeks, when an attendant in-
jected alcohol into the abused

their normal size," he said. "The

allowed a visit from his wife and
daughter, who had frantically
been trying to keep track of hii
whereabouts and had been work-

He told them his story. Letterl
of protest were sent to Moscow,
and the prisoner was moved M

TOWARD THE end of 1973,

to feel concern that some excu

He was told that he would

but would have to remain in t

in a letter to the Jewish activi
Ida Nudel, who wired the pri
warning that if Khantsis were n
released the issue would

On Jan. 29 this year, Khantsi

Israel. But within days of hi
scheduled release, the authorities
were tipped off that he was carry-

which he had made at the reque* j

Somehow, We Grew Up
By RITA GOODMAN
It's July and I always think of
Buddy Hall in July.
I've done it since I was twelve.
Twelve was my age when I
started visiting my Aunt Mayme
and Uncle Maishe at their sum-
mer place in the Adirondack
They owned a theatre which
was located right smack in the
middle of a town called Inlet and
upstairs there were four bed-
rooms, a huge kitchen and a liv-
ing room where lights blinked
GAIETY THEATRE outside the
Drectly across the street was
Hal!-* Market, where Buddy Hall
lied upstairs with his family.
They were town-people and lived
there all year round.
When I first met Buddy, my
heart did thump-thumps for he
was handsome, athletic, person-
able and. most of all. fourteen!
Within a week, from excessive
window-watching, I had his sched-
ule indented in my brain.
He got up each morning at five
o'clock to work on his father's
milk truck which did a delivery
run throughout the mountain
Sometimes I'd wake up at that
hour just to see the sight of him
heaving milk cases.
He'd return in the afternoon
while we were all at the lake but
Buddy's father was strict about
work and it was always five
o'clock by the time he completed
policing the rear area of the
Why Aunt Mayme selected
that hour to serve dinner, I don't
know, but what I did know was
that Buddy Hall went swimming
I'd peek out the curtain to see
him trudging down the back path
throuah the woods with a towel
around his wonderful fourteen-
year old shoulders and suddenly,
dinner would lose its importance.
I'd always arrive a few min-
utes later ... acting like I wa< s<>
surprised to find him there.
(Twelve year old girls in that era
were never known for their coil.)
I'd iit and watch him s'*im,
drool over the mountain-boy
phy?ique and wait for him to
finish his twiliaht dip.
Then we'd talk.
Well, really, then he'd talk. I
never knew what to say.
He'd tell me what it was like
to go to a three-room school.
What it was like to ski in the
winter. What it was like to live
in a town populated by fifty peo-
I would always have to leave
him because at night. I was the
ticket cashier for the first show.
Buddy always came to the first
show and sat in the back row on
the far left side. On the second
seat. Leaving an empty one next
Sitting in the cashier's cage
envisioning that empty seat was
a form of torture.
But every now and then, he'd
run out to his father's store to
get popcorn or candy or a drink
and I'd see him for a minute.
After my aunt and uncle cauihr
on to my "first-live thing," Uncl
Mai he started kidding me, but
Aunt Maym understood and
world say, "It's slow now. Whv
don't you go watch th movie?"
I didn't need coaxing.
That fir=t summer. Buddy Hil'
held my hand when it wasn't ir
a popcorn box.
The next =umm?r, he kissed |
me for th? first time while I wa
doin? one of my just-happened |
to-come-to-the lake visits.
... and it was also that sum
mer, we'd brazenly sat in the
back row with his arm around
With Uncle Maishe watching!
I had all I could do to live
through winters. Buddy Hall
didn't write letters.
Somehow, we g'ew up while
we weren't looking.
It was mv sixteenth summer
when Buddy Ha'l told me, "I've
been accepted at Dartmouth."
I never returned to Inlet again
I never saw Buddy Hall again
...but i'"s July and 1 always
think of Buddy Hall in .luly.

QUESTION: What is the mean-
ing and origin of Gematria?
MRS. DOROTHY HERF
North Miami Beach
ANSWER: Gematria (Gema-
triot pi.) is the calculation of the
numerical value of Hebrew words.
Because every' Hebrew letter
has a numerical value, the let-
ters of words and phrases can be
added to make a sum. A search
is then made to find another word
or phrases of equal numerical
value. This could provide a fuller
explanation or a hidden mean-
In Rabbinic literature numer-
ical Gematria first appears in
the statements of our sages of
the second century. It is also
found in the Midrash and in Kab-
balah, the heritage of Jewish
mysticism. The use of Gematria
in Kabbalah was developed in
the twelfth and thirteenth cen-
Some of our sages used Gema-
tria as om of the many methods
for interpreting the Torah.
Gematria is also used as a fas
cinating game without necessarily
attaching hidden or mystical
meaning to the words or phrases
This game is played by transfer-
ring numbers into Hebrew letters
or words, and vice versa. If a hid
den meaning is found, so much
There are many complicated
methods of calculating the nu-
merical value of words or sen-
tences. There are also compli-
cated Gematriot of different
words or phrases having interest-
ing or mystical meaning. Follow-
ing are two simple examples.
The Hebrew word Chai (life)
is spelled with the two Hebrew
letters. Chet. having a numerical
value of eight, and Yud, having
a numerical value of ten. The
total equals eighteen. The custom
therefore developed of making
contributions to worthy causes in
amounts of eighteen or multiples
of eighteen, symbolizing Chai
An interesting Gematria was
related to me by a Rabbi upon
his return from Moscow. He told
me that this Gematria was point-
ed out to him by a Russsian Jew
In the Moscow Synagogue.
A prayer in Hebrew for the
well being of the Soviet govern
ment is on a large poster hang-
ing on the wall of the Moscow
Synagogue. The USSR (Union of
Soviet Socialist Republics) is
spelled In Russian with the let
ters SSSR. The Russian word for
Union is Soyuz.
On the poster, transliterated
into Hebrew letters it is Samech-
Samech-Samech Resh. The Gema
tria for these four letters equals
380. The Russian Jew pointed out
to the Rabbi that the Hebrew
word for Egypt is Mitzrayim. The
Hebrew spelling is Mem-Zadek-
Resh-Yud-Mem. The Gematria for
these five letters is also 380.

Judaism as a religion the sur-
vival of Jewish tradition.
I suppose that in Israel, where
Rabbi Stern and his colleagues
are trying to lay down the law
on this matter, the "Who is a
Jew?" issue is of primary impor-
After all, Israel's danger is not
Only military'; it is also demo-
graphic and geopolitical.
ASSUMING THE Arabs, say
starting tomorrow, simultaneous-
ly and spontaneously beat their
swords into ploughshares at the
present borderlines, no question

With Israels notoriously low

ibly prolific Sephardim), the
Arabs could easily grow in a dec-
ade to outnumber the Israelis IN
ISRAEL by something like 3-
IN A quarter-century with, say,
a 5-to-l majority, the Arabs could
then wrest control of the nation
at the ballot box without having
fired a shot.
What Orthodox spokesmen in
Israel are saying is that:
A secular Israel will in short
order be no Israel at all;
Even a religiously-centered
Israel must have stricter control
over Jewish identity because no-
minal or marginal or accidental
or purely legal Jews, that is to
say Jews who have no conviction
about being Jewish, are likely to
become little more than secular-
ist democrats within one or two
generations, thus setting up the
conditions under which Arabs or
anybody else can subvert Israel
and destroy the Jewish State.
THESE ARE very good argu-
ments indeed. Are not the "mod-
erate" Palestinians increasingly
demanding a "secular democra-
tic Palestine" in which Jews
and Arabs can live side by
side? It is so persuasive an ar-
gument that it even attracts the
Vatican, which readily appreci-
ates how huge, disadvantaged
majorities overwhelm a political
minority and destroy it.
One of the main reasons that
the "Who is a Jew?" issue is so
hot in Israel today is that Is-
raelis understand its sense in a
most urgent sort of way, in the
Vatican way, if you will. After
all. it concerns their continuation
as a nation.

Tisha B'Av is a fast day in the
Hebrew calendar marking the |
destruction of the first Temple in i
Jerusalem by the Babylonians in \
the year 588 BCE, and also of,
the second Temple by the Ro-1
mans in the year 70 CE. Since j
the advent of the State of Israel
there has been increased interest
in the observance of this Holy
Day because its history is so
intertwined witn the develop
ment of Israel.
Special attention is paid on
this day to the Western Wall in
Jerusalem, which is the only re-
maining structure of Solomon's
Temple. The publication will in
ciude a sketch of the Western
Wall as well as a short history
of its existence.

It was Friday, June 21final
preparations were being made for
the opening of Camp Ka-Dee-Mah
the following Monday. Counselors
and CIT'S, approximately 55 of
them, were busily setting up
classrooms, receiving orientation
on opening and closing exercises
including flag raising and lower-
ing, singing of the American and
Israeli national anthems, the She-
ma and a friendship circle. The
staff sings well!
Next, a rap session was held
with Hanan Sher, an Israeli who
has lived part jf his life in Mi-
ami and has now returned for two
years to work for the American
Zionist Youth Foundation. He
aids high school and college stu-
dents who wish to go to Israel
for any amount of time.
The staff has experienced a one
week orientation in many areas
of camp life and also received,
what I feel, is quite a fairly well-
rounded leadership training in-
struction. As the week drew to a
close, they received final instruc-
tion from camp director George
The camp, which has a maxi-
mum capacity of 220, ranges in
age from 5-14 years. It is divided
into three sections; excluding the
preschool camp which is housed
at Temple Beth Shalom for 3-4
year old children. There is jun-
ior Camp for Kindergarten and
1st grade, Senior Camp for 2nd
thru 5th grades and Teen Travel-
ers for 6th thru 9th.
Junior and Senior Camps are
housed at the facilities of Temple
Beth El. Teen Travelers are the
wandering Jews; never remain
ing at one place. They travel all
over Dade and Broward. counties,
15 campers in each group, and
have two counselors and a CIT
I'm happy I visited Camp Ka-
De-Mah before it started for if
I'd waited, I doubt if I could
have distinguished the counselors
from the campers! The counselors
from the campers The coun-
selors had much fun getting
ready for camp although there
was hard work. However,
learning how to make sand sculp-
tures and arts and crafts projects
made up for it. Seriously, being
a counselor at the camp is a real
experience not only because of
what the counselors learn from
each other, but what the coun-
selors learn from the campers
One of the most valuable things
I learned from spending one day
was that there is no generation
gap: there is no age barrier on
counselors. The staff ranges from
high school juniors to college
students to professional adults.
No matter the age, there is never
an end to camping. I'm sure the
Camp Ka-Dee-Mah counselors
will find this summer a most re-
warding experiene; one I'm sure
they will all treasure.
Have fun! Remember, Camp
Ka-Dee-Mah is action!

at ruling was made in an address to the Con-
on Oral Law in Jerusalem, 1968, by Rabbi
fehuda Untcrman. the former Ashkenazie Chief
o! Israel, according to Rabbi William B. Sil-
\n of Kansas City.

jbi Silverman also cited the views of Dr. Fred
Rosner, an expert in the field of medicine and Jew-

to whether the reccipient of a heart transplant trans-
fer*! the commandments in Deuteronomy to "Take
heed of thyself and keep thy soul diligently" or
"Take ye good heed unto yourselvet."
According to Dr. Rosner. both the Talmud and
Maimonides have interpreted these commandments
to mean "removal of all danger to one's physical
ACCORDING TO Dr. Roner. another Halachic
problem concerning the recipient revolves around
the requirement for burial of any organ removed
from the body of a living human being.
"Thus, a gallbladder, stomach. lung or other dis-
eased internal organ may require burial by Jewish
Law and so might an excised 'old' heart."
Another question concerns a recipient who hap-

Dr. Rosner was quoted as asking: "Does the ques-
tion of avoidance of ritual defilement apply to the
heart of a dead donor which is now to be implanted
into a priest (Cohen)0 What Halachic priorities are
there in choosing a recipient?"
Dr. Rosner also is cited on problems arising from
the transplantation of kidneys from both dead per-
sons and living donors. For the latter, there is a
Halachic question of whether a living donor may
subject himself to the danger, however small, "of

and the Jew wanted to thank
him for it. It was like this. One
day in Washington, Simon Wolfe,
head of the B'nai B'rith, received
a letter from a Jew in Jerusalem.
HIS DAUGHTER required help
for her dowry, so she could marry
her chasan. Would Mr. Wolfe
kindly see "the King of Amer-
ica" and ask him for the pecuni-
ary assistance required.
Wolfe was amused by the let-
ter and showed it to President
Grant. "Is he serious?" asked
"Very much so." explained
Wolfe, telling the President all
about mitzvahs and how highly-
regarded was the mitzvah of
helping marry off a poor girl.
GRANT thereupon wrote a
check for $25 which was sent to
the Jew in Jerusalem. Subse*
quently, the President received
a portrait of himselfon tapestry
done by "'the Jew in Jerusa-

When Grant arrived in Jerusalem
and visited the Wailing Wall,
there was the Jew in Jerusalem
to thank him.
