Hornstein Sets Pace For Pacesetters
Mr. and Mrs. Moses Hornstein
opened their home to more than
50 community leaders this past
week with the Pacesetters Divi-
sion for the UJA '74 Campaign,
chaired by Hornstein. This meet-
ing represented the "kickoff" of
the '74-75 campaign.
First on the agenda was Horn-
stein's introduction of Commit-
tee Chairmen.
He then presented the first
guest speaker of the evening,
Efraim Sevela, former Russian
film director, who emigrated to
Israel 3Vi years ago.
Sevela, of stocky build and
wearing a trim beard, was gen-
tle in his initial approach to the
QUIETLY HE related his
background of accomplishments
in Russia. An officer in the Army
during World War Two. A jour-
nalist. Served in the Navy. Di-
rector of eight feature movies.
With each sentence, his voice
gained momentum until finally,
he beseeched the very quiet peo-
ple: "Why should a man who

He explained, "with the prop-
aganda against Jews. I could see
the possibility in the future that
as a Russian Navy man, I might
have to fieht the Jews! Instead,
I chose to defend Jews."
The gentleness replaced by
passion for his people, Sevela
continued. "In 1971, I was in the
first wave of 24 people to strike
for permission to leave Russia.
100,000 have followed. 10.000 So-

UN Approves PLO's Palestinian Status
A draft resolution on the
"Palestine Question." sponsored
by 67 nations which invites the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion (PLO) to participate in the
General Assembly discussions of
the issue, was passed 105-4 on
The resolution reads: "The
General Assembly, considering
that the Palestine people is the
principal party to the question
of Palestine, invites the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization, the
representative of the Palestin-
ian people, to participate in the
deliberations of the General As-
sembly on the question of Pales-
tine in plenary meetings."
THE SPONSORS of the res-
olution did not include Jordan
or any Western countries. Ob-
servers here said that the res-
olution does not gant observer
status to the PLO.
The United States and Israel
were two of the four countries
voting against the resolution.
U.S. spokesmen declared that
giving the PLO such status
would endanger American peace
efforts in the Middle East, par-
ticularly because it set Jordan
aside as the logical spokesman
for the Palestinians.

Looking at the Soviet visitor,
Rabinowitz said he found it al-
I incredible to see a Soviet
Jew in Hollywood for he'd been
in rtimln (luring the time of the
U-2 incident and he'd felt then
that the Jews' days were num-
bered. Quoting the late David
E< n-Gurion, he said. 'Israel will
te safe when they have five mil-
lion Jews."
The gentleman in the conserv-
ative business suit did not make
conservative statements. "We are
dealing with Jewish survival aft-
er a war which cost nine billion
do ]ars. With history, you either
write it or it's written by some-
one else."
RaUnowrtZ concluded, "We
must contribute to human civili-

Moses Hornstein then rose for '
a personal summation of his re-
cent trips to both Washington
an I Israel in which he explained,
"We can no longer give with log-
ic. We must give with our heart
not our head."

feelings for the children he'd
seen and met in Israel. "They
gave us each a carnation while
they smiled and said 'Shalom'
and I telt love and a feeling of
oneness," he said.
"The children are our future.
Their strength, attitude and spir-
it is what I carried home from
Israel." he concluded.
Allen Gordon, the fourth mem-
ber of the Mission, then stood to
tell the audience of the intensity
of the trip and learning with ac-
curacy of the genuine situation.
"I used my relatives in Israel
as a sounding board and found
they are concerned with us be-

Shazar Will be Missed
The death of former Israel President Zalman Shazar is
being universally mourned. His passing means another
decrease in the ranks of the original founders of Israel as
a modern nation.
But Shazar will be missed for other, more cogent rea-
sons. His was a contemplative nature. His was the soul of
the scholar, the sensitivity of the mystic and the writer, the
vision of the prophet and the historian who saw in Israel
reborn the renewal of a divine promise.
Although Israel is hardly more than a quarter of a
century old, one can already look back upon "the good
old days," when despite the continuing threats of war, the
nation could luxuriate in the awareness that a new ex-
periment was justifying an old promise: that the fact of
Israel demonstrated the Tightness of the ancient expecta-
tions for Israel.
President Shazar represented these "good old days"
better than almost anyone else. He was the least political,
the most spiritual of all of Israel's leaders.
Since Dr. Chaim Weizmann, every Israeli President
has been a man of the mind, the best the nation could
offer as symbolic of a People of the Book.
But President Shazar was particularly representative
of this, and as the years go by and the facts of Israeli life
become more and more complex, he will be missed more
than ever.
At What Cost to Israel?
It is still too early to assess the outcome of Dr. Kissin-
ger's latest tour through the Middle East, but it does seem
that perhaps some progress has been made.
What we hope is that the price is not higher than we
are being told now.
Prime Minister Rabin has stated repeatedly that he
will not lead Israel toward a piecemeal quest for peace
in the Middle East that Israelis will simply not consider
the kind of diplomacy that purchases a piece of peace for
a peace of territory.
And yet, that apparently is what is happening, if we
are to judge by the early results of the Israeli promise for
a new 31-mile withdrawal in the Sinai for Egyptian prom-
ises of telephone links between the two countries.
Furthermore, and at the risk of offending those who
support the principle of no withdrawals at all, we would
agree that such trade-offs may have some value, provided,
as we have already observed, there is not more that the
Israelis cue forced into offering than is officially revealed.
One of the reasons we have for expressing these fears
is the simultaneous announcement with the Kissinger de-
parture from Israel that Iran and Saudi Arabia are pre-
paring for a sudden reduction in the cost of oil, providing
the Arabian American Oil Co. quits blocking the deal.
Did Israel have to pay for that one too?
No Room for Squatters
The struggle between left and right-wingers over the
occupation of the West Bank of Jordan has reached scan-
dalous proportions.
The question is squatters' rights because Israel has no
intention of permitting "settlements" there.
What is scandalous about it is that Jews are clubbing
Jews in the Middle East in the name of carrying out na-
tional Israeli policy.
This obvious fact apart, the more interesting facet of
the struggle is that it telegraphs Israeli intentions with
respect to a future settlement with Jordan.
Whatever the details of that ultimate settlement may
be, it should be eminently clear by now that Israel intends
to be able to deal with the West Bank as Jordanian if and
when the time for talking settlement ever comes.
Under those circumstances, there can be no room for

the old East Europeans still liv-
ing who saw Israel through to
her birth and into the first quar-
ter-century of her existence as a
I suppose many of Israels
newer generation of politicians
are not too sad about that.
FOR AT least a decade now,
they've talked, and not too sub-
tly either, about the strangle-
hold the old pioneers held on the
wellspring of the country's po-
litical power.
As time takes its inevitable
toll, there will be fewer and few-
er of the East European surviv-
ing to challenge the newer
breed's claim to their inherit-
ance. The youngsters (compara-
tively! do not have to talk so
much, subtly or otherwise; even
among politicians, nature takes
its course.
But it seems to me that much
is already lost with the continu-
ing departures of the East Euro-
pean fathers that the restless
sabras, anxious to take their
own opportunity to lead the na-
tion, will never be able to bring
to the ship of state.
President Shazar is an exam-
ple of that as was David Ben-
Gurion before him, and ail the
others back to Itzhak Ben-Zvi
and Chaim Weizmann. whose
centenary is now being observed
on both sides of the Atlantic.
WHAT I mean is a spirit of
prophecy and fulfillment those
men had that their descendants
do not have; nor will they ever
be able to have it.
This is not said critically. It
is simply a matter of history, and
its crux is rooted in the ancient
imperative, "Next year in Je-
The Shazars spoke this prav-
er fervently, but as a metaphor
for Jewish salvation and the
Jewish continuum. It had mean-
ing for them even before there
was a Jewish Jerusalem.
For the new young politico*,
Jerusalem is a living city, a na-
tional symbol, perhaps a reli-
gious shrine. But they can never,
nor will they ever see it the way
the old East Europeans saw Je-
rusalem specifically and Israel
For them, Jerusalem is first
and foremost political.
FOR THE Shazars. Jerusalem
was a dream to be achieved even
after the reestablishment of a
Jewish Jerusalem. For those
who come after the Shazars, it
is secular, not divine. In platon-
ic terms, it is Particular, not
If you think this is a quaint or
archaic and therefore a trivial
distinction, then think also of
the indifferent or, what is worse,
hostile feelings young Israelis
harbor toward European Jewish
history especially that most
recent portion of it that ended
in the Hitlerian holocaust.
I. with my ties to the East
European past, see this martyr-
dom as the ultimate justification
of Jewish survival in a crass
Christian civilization intent,
from the beginning of Christian-
ity, on destroying it.
THE YOUNG Israeli, and that
includes his new political lead-
ers, sees this as an inexplicable
period in Jewish history in
which Jews passively submitted
to their own butchery.
And so, my own feelings, as a
mirror of the East European,
put me closer to the vision of
men like President Shazar. who
believed in the prophetic fulfill-
ment of Israel reborn, and who
were committed to that vision
even after Israel's reestablish-
ment as a nation.
For them, the fact of Israel
did not diminish the spirit of Is-
rael as, I fear so deeply, it does
for the new young breed. For
tnem, the thing called Israel did
;,l *....... : ^'
not rer lace the idea of Israel,
which nationhood in itself can
never hope to achieve. For them,
only Judaism could aspire to
a-hieve it.
FOR THE young breed, it
seems to me. politics is politics:
the visionary wellspring is rapid-
ly drying up.
They have not inherited but
by their nature are already cre-
ating a Jewish nation against
which the earliest prophets
warned us: Israel does not need
kings or governments; Israel's
king, Israel's kingdom are else-
The logical conclusion here is
not that a modern Jewish na-
tion is a threat to Israel as a
people. That would be too naive
a view of the prophetic intent,
and after all, President Shazar
did stand proudly at the helm
of Israel reborn.
BUT IT does seem that the
death of the divine spark in the
East European flame of Israels
political inspiration is also spell-
ing the death of the prophetic
understanding that if Israel
must be, like other peoples, a
nation, then let it be clear that
the nation is merely a metaphor
for Israel's higher purpose.
And what is this highest pur-
pose? It is not exclusively po-
litical. It is historic.
It is a view of Jerusalem
through the eyes of the East Ku-
ropean, not the militant young
turk who awaits his opportunity
in the back corridors of the Par-
liarr.ent today.
ONE WOULD be mistaken. I
think, to see this view of Israel's
prophetic destiny exclusively in
religious terms. President Sha-
zar, a pious man, had it and

Ford, Mao Think

Eos fifnllH TtBtM Syndicate
NEW YORK Query: What
idea about higher education does
President Gerald Ford here
with Chairman Mao? Answer:
They both believe the influence
of working men should be
brought to bear on college stu-
This doesn't by any means dis-
credit Mr. Ford's suggestion in
nil commencement talk in Ohio
on the Labor Day weekend that
working men and women should
l:e accepted in the colleges not
only as students but as teachers.
It limply puts it into perspective.
BOTH IN Communist and dem-
ocratic societies there is the
persistent, nagging question of
how the air in t.'ie Ivory tower
can be mixed with the smell of
sweat and toil to keep it from
getting too rarefied.
Mao is worried that the Chi-
nese Communist students will
get corrupted by alien ideas and
like many Russian students
become technocrats with Voir
pure Communist flame dimmed.
Hence their exile to outlying
rural areas, where presumably
they get their uppity ideas
knocked out of them and some
proletarian ones drummed in.
MR. FORD'S worry is less
ideological. He shares the com-
mon feeling of the middle-class
American that higher education
isn't "practical" enough.
His plea for a "better mix" of
the intellectual and practical
will help him with the Meanys
and Fitzsimmonses and the la-
bor vote, and certainly won't
harm him with the Main Streets
of every American town.
Aside from the political angle,
what sense does Mr. Ford's sug-
gestion make in educational
terms? It isn't at all a bad idea
Mr. Ford's remark that e-Juca-
tion is being "strangled by
degrees" is an easy pun but it
packs considerable truth.

three years as dean of a pretty
good graduate school, and who is

During the 1960s there was a
mad rush for degrees which
threatened to saturate the PhD
market. It led an academic wag

History has taught the Jewish people that whether we like it
or not, we must stand up and be counted. When we attempted as-
similating in European societies, tried being like everyone else, there
was always a time when the Jews were reminded that they were
Jews. The Spanish Inquisition, the Holocaust, the Stalin era are all
During the 1973 Yom Kippur War, we stood up voluntarily and
were counted. Just last week, at our first fund raising organization
meeting of our Pacesetter Workers, 47 people stood up in a jam-
packed room to be counted. They not only volunteered their serv-
ices for the 1975 campaign but offered their 1975 Jewish tax. Each1
was a sophisticate; they were aware of the stock market situation
and its affect on them.
The people in the building trades are w-ell aware of what has
happened in 1974, and also anticipate the short term future. Yet,
each one, with enthusiasm and spirit, were ready to make the
largest commitments that this community has ever witnessed at any
one meeting. With one voi^e they accepted the responsibility for
involving more people in the raising of additional funds for our local,

New Directions In Education
To Be Considered By UOJCA
A comprehensive review of
new institutions and techniques
of Jewish education will be one
of the highlights of the upcom-
ing 76th Anniversary Biennial
Convention of the Union of Or-
thodox Jewish Congregations of
America, according to a state-
ment released by UOJCA Presi-
dent, Harold M. Jacobs.
The five day event will take
place at the Boca Raton Hotel
& Club, Boca Raton, Thanksgiv-
ing Weekend, Nov. 27 Dec. 1.
The convention, which will
bring together outstanding lay
leaders, educators, and Torah
minds will determine educational
priorities for the Orthodox com-
munity. They will review the
critical role that the Orthodox
synagogue must play in sup[>ort
of the Day School and Yeshiva
movement, as well as the activi-
ties of the Union's (NCSY) in-
ternational youth movement,
the National Conference of Syn-
agogue Youth.
According to General Conven-
tion chairman, Al H. Thomas of
Memphis, Tenn., and cochairman
Marvin Herskowitz of New York
City, a major segment of the
program will deal with the prog-
ress that NCSY has achieved
through a variety of imagina-
tive, educational innovations.
NCSY has pioneered the Free
Torah High School concept,
which allows public high school
students to voluntarily partici-
pate in a wide spectrum of class-
es on Torah topics. Other hew

clude "Drop-in Centers" offering

tional, and recreational programs

members in isolated Jewish com- j
munities, and the B'nei Torah I
Day School Program, in coope-
ration with Torah Umesorah, to
encourage enrollment in institu-
tions of advanced Torah learn-
ing among Day School students.
Another major topic of dis-
cussion at the convention will
be current and future institu-
tions of higher Torah learning
which are open to the typical
American-Jewish student.
Other major focuses of the
convention will include the fu-
ture of the State of Israel, the
role of Jewish women in the
community, Jewish civil rights,
the Jewish poor and aged in
American society, the Orthodox
synagogue meets the challenges
of the future, and the crisis of
Jewish identity.

Soviet Jewry
Activists Are Still Harassed
Despite the apparent good-will
involved in the release of Pris-
oner Of Conscience (POO Sylva
Zalmanson, Soviet harassment
of Jewish activists continues.
Since early September, five
demonstrations have been held
outside tourist hotels, the Cen-
tral Committee, The Ministry of
Interior and Moscow OVIR. In
two of the five cases, the dem-
onstrators were sentenced to 15
days each. In the others, the
protesters were interrogated for
several hours, then released. The
participants were mostly youth
and women.
Some 100 Soviet Jews from
five cities in the USSR have ap-
pealed to Piesident Ford, re-
questing that he intercede in the
case of Viktor Polsky, the Jew-
ish activist who is being tried
for hitting a 19-year-old woman
in a traffic accident. The Jews
contend that Polsky is being
framed. The trial was set for
Oct. 17.

home of the Minin family. They

Holiday Messages
The mood of 66 Jews from all
parts of the Soviet Union is re-
flected in this message: "We the
Jews of the Soviet Union, as
never before, have felt during
the past year the ever-increas-
ing contact with Jews from all
other countries .
"It is possible that we are)
standing on the threshold of a |

of Russian Jews, decisive. But '

efforts on our behalf."

Dr. Erma Cherniak sends his
message in the form of a hunger
strike. The 46-year-old scientist
was refused exit twice and be-1
gan his strike Sept. 17. OVIR j

face "complications." He refus-1
ed. He needs our support. (RSF- !

Emigration Policy
Soviet Jewry Committees and
individuals in America will need
to scrutinize the actions of the
Russian government to assure
that they discontinue harassing
Jews applying for exit visas.
American Jews reportedly will
be relied upon by Congress to
report any and all failures of
the Soviet Union to comply with
the upcoming agreement.
Since most Jews will probably
opt to leave the USSR and since
we are in touch with many of
them. Congress will have no way
of knowing about mistreatment
unless we keep them informed.

tee to learn how you can help.

in a large executive chair at a
large executive desk in a large
executive office at Cresthaven
Enterprises which he and his
I ither, David, own.
AWHILE AGO, when he was

1'le Curtis Publishing Company.
1 age twelve, he'd become the
District Manager supervising his
compatriots of the magazine sell-
llng circuit.
One of the bonuses was cou-

Yorra opted not to practice.
He smiles as he mentally sums
up those years. "Of either pro-
fession, doctor or lawyer, I would
have made a better lawyer had
I practiced."
Then the smile takes on the
aura of a kleig light as he beams,
"My son, Mark, graduated from
Allx-rt Einstein Medical School
last June and is now interning
at Lincoln Hospital in the
He sits back in his chair and
pride flashes across the desk as
Yorra adds, "He's going to be a
fine doctor."
And so, after graduating
law school, Albert Yorra both
married his wife, Anne, and saw
an ad for "carpenters wanted."
CAMP EDWARDS was about
to be built nearby.
Albert Yorra's description of
his entrance into the hammer
and nail brigade is a study in
"Of course, I'm a carpenter,"
he had replied to the man doing
the hiring. Then Yorra hotfooted
it back to Boston where then,
you could join the Union for $55
without being tested.
You could also (if you were
Albert Yorra) find a retired car-
penter who owned a toolbox fill-
ed with an accumulative multi-
tude of old tools that NATU-
RALLY, would belong to an ex-
Iieriencid craftsman.
He bought it! Overalls too.
Then he reported back to Camp
As the newly hired cari>enters
stood in a row, the Superintend-
ent inspected the menage. White,
brand new overalls. Bright
spankin'-new toolboxes.
THEN HIS vision zeroed in on
Albert Yorra's banged-up. worn
one sitting at attention by his
He asked, "Yours?"
Albert nodded in affirmation.
"You're the Foreman," it was
announced as the plans and men
were turned over to a carpenter
as green as the wood they were
about to use.
Yorra stayed one year before
being transferred to Camp
The Yorras then moved to
Portland where he took a posi-
tion with CIT Corporation, a na-
tional consumer financing com-
pany, and later became a dealer
representative for an automobile
agency; moving last up the lad-
der to General Manager.
Yorra had survived a depres-
sion but now, another major mo-
ment in history occurred, World
War II.
The production of automobiles
came to a fast halt. There was
nothing to sell.
HOWEVER, there were scores
of military tires in need of re-
pairing and retreading so he
joined a firm whose specialty it
was to do the same.
Once the War was concluded,
he returned to the auto business
in Portland.
It was there that he and Anne
became active members of the
Jewish community.
And when he speaks of Anne,
the proud glow projects once
again. "She's a wonderful per-
son. We've married 35 or 36
years." That is, whether you're
counting the eloping-marriage
or the big-wedding marriage.
When asked if anyone knew
they were married for one year
prior to the religious ceremony,
Yorra smiles, "She knew."
Now they celebrate both an-
niversaries and as he explains of
the woman he's married twice,
"I'd marry her again."
This marriage story equals in
interest the one about Albert
and Anne coming to Florida for
David and Lila's wedding; then
accompanying them on their
honeymoon to Havana!
When they returned, Albert
joined David in the Florida
building venture. It was 1955.
NOW, 20 years later, he says,
"That's been a wonderful mar-
riage too. We and our families
enjoy each other and it's been a
good partnership."
In addition to his son, "the
doctor," Yorra's daughter, Bar-
bara, and her children, Wendy
and Lauren, constitute the re-
mainder of the Albert Yorra
family tree. They, too, reside in
the Hollywood area where "Bob-
bie" is in her second year at
Barry College working toward
her Master's in Social Work. She
counsels four days a week at
Henderson Clinic in Hollywood.
It is here in that Hollywood
area that Albert Yorra has pro-
gresssively placed his interests;
business, family and otherwise.
(itherwise means as a member
of Temple Sinai.
Otherwise means as a charter
member of the newly formed
Emerald Hills B'nai B'rith
High on the agenda of Yorra's
interests is "The Starting Place,"
a drug rehabilitation center of
which he is a vice president. His
responsibility is fund raising
while Anne does counseling.
FOREMOST, however, among
all of Albert Yorra's "other-
wises" is his feeling for Israel.
"I've always been a committed
person," he says, "because I
think this is important to me as
a Jew. Jews all over the world
can walk with their heads held
high and shoulders erect because
there is an Israel which is not a
center of religion but a Jewish
His fervor mounts as he con-
tinues. "I'm proud we have a
place we can feel completely ac-
cepted. Everywhere else in the
world, we're a minority and
there is that question. 'Am I be-
ing completely accepted'?"
Commenting on his recent
Prime Minister's Mission trip,
he says, "Coming in over the
Mediterranean, 'Hatikvah' is
played throughout the cabin and
suddenly you see the coastline.
It is excitement. A joy. A spir-
itual feeling."
He adds. "When you land,
the feeling becomes more magni-
Yorra feels that the rest of the
world is indifferent to Israel's
economic crises and that the last
Arab embargo gave those coun-
tries confidence.
"Israel must be strong to sur-
vive," Yorra said. "Strength is
the only deterrent those coun-
tries will respect."
AND SO, this year, Albert and
his brother will cochair the

'Lebanon, Jordan and Israel

in regional interests where
boundaries arc at once respected
and transcended.

Camp Ka-Dee-Mah Board
Meeting, Election Set
The board of directors of

its annual general member-

Charlie Friedman, the Demo-
cratic- Congressional Nominee
of District 12. said Tuesday be-
fore a group of approximately
200 supporters.
"These companies are using
their profit* io buy our land, our
corporations, and our share of
an America that we have work-
ed hard for."
Charlie Friedman believes
that we must strongly enforce
legislation that will not only
protect our ownership of Amer-
ica, but will enable us to con-
tinue our life style without the
threat of bankruptcy. There are
anti-trust laws on the books;
they must be strongly enforced.
We must also use our resources
to protect our position with
these oil producing countries.
Our production of food far
outweighs that of the wealthy
oil nations. Perhaps, he says, we
should use our natural resources
as a bargaining base. NO OIL,
"This may sound tough." says
Friedman, "but we have reached
a crisis situation. The only way
for us to reverse the inflationary
spiral is to consider our own
needs. We must bargain from a
position of strength with all our
adversaries including the oil
wealthy Arab nations."
Another aspect of the depend-
ency on the Arab nations con-
cerns Friedman. The only true
democracy left In the Middle
East is Israel, and we as a free
nation must protect her.
"Having lived in Israel, I
know the importance of her sur-
vival. We as Americans must do
all in our power to help her.
I am totally committed and will
work for the survival and con-
tinuation of the state of Israel,"
Friedman said.
Friedman believes that we can
learn from other countries. One
of the strong points of the Is-
raeli society is their concept of
assistance to those who need
help. This is shown not only by
their acceptance of all immi-
grants but also in their treat-
ment of the people who live
there. They have enacted a
strong, comprehensive medical
care policy which protects, not
only the elderly, but all the citi-
zens of Israel.
"As I have been a practicing
dentist for many years, I know
that the people of America can-
not afford the medical care that
they deserve. I am strongly in
favor of a comprehensive policy
in America, that would enable
the people to receive proper
medical care," Friedman said.
The introduction of a compre-
hensive program can be accom-
plished without adding to the in-
flationary spiral and without
taking away the incentive of the
medical profession to earn a liv-
ing, he assured his listeners.
As the representative from
the 12th district to Congress
Friedman promised to wirk to
achieve these goals in Washing-
ton. In conclusion, Friedman
told his supporters, "I need your
help, I need your support, and
most of all, I need your vote."

ministered by the Jewish Fede-

Plenty of Jobs Not Enough Help
yyMUlM THE economists are disturbed by the
run-away inflation in Israel, and the gov-
ernment is taking steps to cool down the over-
heated economy. I have conducted my own pri-
vate survey of one barometer of economic condi-
tions the job market.
I went through a normal weekend edition
of the latest issue of the afternoon paper,
"Maariv," and counted 256 display advertise-
ments, large and small, seeking 463 employees
of various categories.
THERE WAS an additional very large ad
from the Government Civil Service Commission,
seeking no less than 259 candidates for govern-
ment positions. And there were 345 of the small,
classified ads, appealing for approximately 383
applicants. Summary: 602 ads looking for 1105
That number may not seem large, but re-
member this was a single, normal issue of one
newspaper. The situation is repeated every
week. Employers look elsewhere as well. The
bulletin boards of the universities are covered
with announcements of available positions.
IN SHORT, there is a serious lack of work-
ing hands encompassing almost every field of
employment. Of course this also helps to explain
the rash of strikes which have recently swept
the country.
Almost any strike is bound to succeed, at
least in part. The employers have no choice.
There is no one else available, and this despite
the continuing immigration into the country.
What kind of help is in greatest demand?
From my collection of ads it appears that engi-
neers and technical people head the list a fact
which greatly increases the responsibility placed
upon the Technion. There are others. A secre-
tary-typist who can Work in both Hebrew and
i:ti'-,'lisli would be worth her weight in gold to
judge by these ads.
The demand for watchmen and guards re-
flects the heightened security consciousness.
Tailors and seamstresses are in short supply.
THERE ARE very, very few openings for
lawyers, but lots for administrative personnel,
computer operators, bookkeepers, welders, ma-
The many job opportunities make it tempt-
ing for mothers to go out and work too, but
who will take care of the young children at
home? Hence the scores and scores of ads. some
of them marked urgent, seeking personnel to
look after the children.
The trouble is that the wages demanded are
high. Our Ruthy. who has a part-time job on the
junior staff of Tel Aviv University, figures that
in the long run it costs her almost as much to
have a woman come in to take care of Anat, as
Ruthy herself nets from the job. This is a nor-
mal experience.
Big Pressures Weaken Orthodox
A RECENT substantial influx into Hebrew day
schools of students from Conservative and
Reform homes has been a key factor in success-
ful pressures towards a weakening Orthodox
position in some of the school; "and further
shifting in this direction seems likely.'"' accord-
ing to a study by an Orthodox educator.
The study was made by Dr Irving Fried,
principal of the Columbus (Ohio) Tomh Acad-
emy. He reported his findings in the June issue
of "The Jewish Parent," the official publication
of the National Association of Hebrew Day
Schools. The association is an affiliate of Torah
Ume-orah. the National Society for Hebrew Day
DR. FRIED reported he had chosen 35
Hebrew day schools for his investigation, select-
ed to reflect the makeup of such schools in
terms of their size and geographic locations
He sent a questionnaire to the principal of
each school, to a rabbi actively involved in the
school and to the executive director of the local
Jewish Federation.
Because several of the respondents had dual
roles as principal and rabbi and two of the
communities had no local Federation offices,
the potential respondents totalled 98. Dr. Fried,
who reported he made his study in the fall of
1972, said nearly 90 percent of the question-
naires, representing 32 schools, were returned.
THE DATA showed that 31 of the 32 schools
reported families with Conservative synagogue
affiliations among their student bodies. Ten of
the schools reported student bodies of between
41 and 100 percent Conservative affiliates.
Dr. Fried concluded that it seems probable
that at least 50 percent of the students in the
schools represented in this sample were from
non-Orthodox families."
HE ALSO found that 26 of the schools re-
ported Conservative affiliates among their board
members. Eight schools reported boards consist-
ing of between 41 and 100 percent Conservative
affiliate and te nreported between 21 and 40
percent such affiliates. Reform affililates were
reported holding memberships on 16 boards.
Dr. Fried reported that in 23 out of 26
schools reporting pressures to change the
school's religious philosophy during the 1967-72
period, "the direction of pressure was towards
a weakened religious position" and that "all of
the respondent groups indicated that the parents
were the primary group seeking change."
DR. FRIED expressed the conviction that
"thv trend toward parental disinterest and op-
position" could be reversed or at least halted.
He contended that when parents fail to support
the relisious position of the school, "they are
doing so out of absence of knowledge, not
through a deliberate design to subvert the ob-
jectives of the school."

Scoop Jackson's a Noble Politico
A REMARKABLE man is Sen. Henry Jackson.
The dynamic politician from the State of
Washington has labored long and mightily for
many causes, and one of them is the right of the
Jews to emigrate from Russia.
"Scoop," as he is called, has been belittled
by some as a hawk, as the "Senator from
Doeing," as a cold warrior, etc.
HE IS indeed concerned about Russia. One
does not have to be a right-winger to feel that
Communism is something against which we
should guard ourselves.
The Kremlin's reluctance to permit our
people to live or leave as Jews is a symptom
of the harshness of that regime. The recent
bulldozer attack on modern art and media peo-
ple is another reminder of that harshness.
Or read the texts of the speeches by Mos-
cow's men in the UN, and you detect malice and
hypocrisy, as when they, representing a nation
which has gobbled up oodles of other nations,
charge Israel with being aggressive.
SEN. JACKSON, from a State with a small
number of Jewish voters, has been a gallant
defender of Jewish rights, of the Israeli case,
and of humanitarianism in general.
True, he wants to sit in the White House.
But it is notable that he thinks he can get into
the White House by supporting Jewish rights.
May a!l his rivals take the same position!
In a recet gala event in Los Angeles (hon-
oring Edward Sanders, a noble man) Sen. Jack-
son attacked the "Arab oil cartel." Would that
all of his rivals would take that tack, too.
