petrodollars, not war, presents
the greatest challenge to Israel
and the United States, accord-
ing to former Sen. Howard M.
Metzenbaum of Ohio.
Speaking to more than 500
people at the 75th annual meet-
ing of the Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Chicago last Thurs-
day, Metzenbaum said that by
1979 OPEC nations would have
enough excess dollars "to buy
100 per cent of all the companies
listed on the New York Stock
SOME OF these nations not
only "seek to exterminate Israel,
but to reduce the United States
and the industrial nations to
second class status," he said.
After speaking with Arab lead-
ers during a recent trip to the
Middle East, Metzenbaum is con-
vinced that there will not be
another Arab-Israeli war.
Of all the Arab nations, only
Syria (plus the PLO) really
wants war and is able to wage
one, he said.
He doubted ttiat Syria would
attack Israel unless assured of
support from Egypt and Jordan.
"EGYPT desperately wants,
needs peace. She has had enough
wars. For her economy to be
viable she must not have another
#ar." Metzenbaum said.
He felt that Jordan would be
wary of entering hostilities be-
cause doing so would strengthen
Yasir Arafat and the PLO.
Metzenbaum's observations
came on the heels of official re-
actions in Washington and Je-
rusalem which tend to support
him in his belief that the Arabs
are more limited in their war-
making options than is common-
ly assumed.
At the same time, legislative
moves in the new Congress sug-
gest that recent estimates of the
impact cf petrodollars on the
U.S. economy is not as threaten-
ing as had been thought.

The storm centers around recent interviews with Dr. Goldmann

DR. GOLDMANN also disclos-

parties to arrange a meeting be-

to naught because Israeli govern-

Goldmann, would never under-
take initiatives concerning Israel
without its specific approval.
Dr. Goldmann's critics here and

he expressed, given his stature as

dangerous and detrimental to Is-

|t, Delegate Reports
i O11 NCJW'Summit'
Bernice Greene, recently re-
\ turned from a week-long trip to
I Israel as a delegate to the Na-
I tional Council of Jewish Women's
' Second Summit Conference, con-
veyed to NCJW's Hollywood Sec-
i tion a message from Prime Min-
ister Yitzhak Rabin, who had ad-
' dressed the XCJW Summit Con-
'. ference Banquet at the Knesset
I in Jerusalem.
Mrs. Greene said that Prime
Minister Rabin, who spoke chief-
! ]y of the enormous challenges
\ faring Israel today, told her and
' t^e other members of the Sum-
f mit delegation: "When I became
( Prune Minister a little over six
months ago. I realized I would
face one of the most difficult
periods in Israel's life.
"But I think our generation,
C^?cia'.ly in the last few years,
has brought about a unique ex-
ample of how the Jewish triangle
Israel as a Jewish State; the
Jews of the affluent societies, es-
pecially in the United States; and
the community of the Soviet
Union have combined efforts
for the achievement of a unique
Jewish spirit of hope and ere-
"I think the kind of activity
that has taken place in the last
two ^ears," he continued, "has
produced a new standard in the
level of Jewish responsibility."
_ Over 150 Council women, rep
resenting past and present Coun
<" leadership across the country,
participated as delegates to the
fcummit Conference.
Key speakers during the Con-
ference included Avraham Avi-
dar. Assistant Director General
of the Ministry of Foreign Af-
fairs; Avraham Harman, Presi-
dent of the Hebrew University;
and Aharon Yadlin. Minister of
Education and Culture, all of
whom detailed the social, educa-
tional, and military problems
facing Israel.
Delegates were received dur-
[ ing the Conference at the Presi
, dent's residence in Jerusalem by
j President Ephraim Katzir and his
j wife Nina, both of whom cen-
j gratulated the Council on Its 2*7
f years of work in Israeli educa
I tion.
One Summit Conference high-
light which centered around
j Councils role in Israeli education
was the dedication ceremony ot
! the NCJW Research Institute for
! Innovation in Education.
The Research Institute, estab-
I Ihhed by NCJW in 1968, is an
action-research center designed
to develop and evaluate new edu-
! cational methods, materials, and
services for the educationally dis-
dvantaged in order to speed
their integration into Israel'j
' modern society.
I Three special wings of the R
I aearch Institute the Robinson
Wing, the Rose Herman Lehrmai
I Wir;i and the Morris 1. l*#f
schn Wing were officially dedi
cted during the ceremonies. The
! Research Institute is housed in
the School of Education in the
pew campus complex built on Mt
i Mrs. Greene commented that
one aspect of the Conference
which had particular impact on
her thinkine was a panel discus-
' ion on "Women and Change:
Implications for Israel." in which
eurrent and future problems of
Israeli women were discussed.
The panel moderator was Zena
Harman, former member ot
Knesset, Who gave delegates some
insight into how difficult and
many-sided the role of the Israeli
woman is today.
Mrs. Greene said that "the ex-
perience of Summit Conference
cannot be compared with any
other trip I know of it's
changed my outlook on every-
thing concerned with Israel, and
it's made me even more aware
of my responsibilities to Israel
both as a Jew and as a woman."
Support of education, together
with programs for social action
and community service both at
home and abroad, have been a
tradition in NCJW since its
founding in 1893.
The 100.000-member women's
organization operates in more
than 200 communities throughout
the United States. Current pri-
orities incllude protection of
constitutional rights, juvenile
justice, and strengthening the
quality of Jewish life.

J-V-M Was a Mistake
From the beginning, we have stated in these columns
that the Jackson-Mills-Vanik Amendment was a terrible
The New York Times' C. L. Sulzberger argued in an
essay last week that if there had been a few J-V-M
Amendments around during the Hitler era, if Europe and
America had voiced some objections to the Nazi tactics,
then Hitler might never have gone as far as he did, and
millions of Jewish lives might have been saved.
We admit that Sulzberger has a point, and a good
one. Still, it is not the principle of the J-V-M Amendment
to which we objected, but to the statement of the principle
as appended to an economic treaty that endangered the
best intentions of each, and that now proves to be the
death of both.
Surely, the right of free emigration without punitive
restraint is a noble ideal, and there is great merit in
pressing the Soviet Union on that point
But why did it have to be attached to something else,
in this instance Most Favored Nation trade status for the
Soviets? Could it not have stood on its own, thus avoiding
giving the Soviets an excuse to ignore the free emigration
The Fruit of Expediency
Forget, if you can, the unspeakable methods of the
Palestine Liberation Organization in the Middle East.
After all of Yasir Arafat's talk about his olive branch
offering before the United Nations, what about the now
second terrorist attack at Orly Airfield in Paris?
What about the bombing of totally unrelated Jewish
celebrations this week in London hotels?
Those who have thought about it for a long time
never did sucumb tc the absurdity of the Arafat olive
branch talk, and so they are not disappointed.
But the French must find the Orly attacks particularly
hard to take.
More than any other European nation, and the rest
have been bad enough, the French about-face with re-
spect to Israel was the most dramatic and the most obvi-
ously selfish and materialistic.
The French dropped the Israelis and began their
ardent courtship of the Arabs because that is where the
oil was. The French, in fact, can take a good deal of the
credit for the shift in the Middle East balance of power
away from Israel.
Now the attacks at Orly demonstrate better than any-
thing else not only the untrustworthiness of Arab state-
ments of intent, but also the bitter fruit of national im-
The French must eat the fruit of their harvest a
poisonous fruit planted in the spirit of ideological selfish-
ness and come to flower in an atmosphere of rank ex-
The Fruit of Tu"B'Shvat
Tu B'Shvat, the Jewish New Year of the Trees, will be
celebrated on Monday.
Though a minor holiday, it is one of the truly happy
festivals in the Jewish calendar, and during the Galut. it
was marked by the distribution of fruit (dates, raisins, nuts,
bokser) to religious school children as a remembrance
of the produce of ancient Israel.
Today, ancient Israel is a mattter of her glorious his-

IMMEDIATELY after the Yom
Kippur War, I was invited to
speak from one of the most dis-
tinguished pulpits in the Miami
Beach community
There, I urged tne congrega-
tion to reexamine Henry Kissin-
ger and to come to see him as
the advanced phalanx of the
new Judenrat.
KISSINGER'S being Jewish,
I declared, was unrelated to the
fact that he had already sold
Israel out, and that his continu-
ing betrayals would become
clearer during the months ahead.
When I was done, the Rabbi
thanked me for my words, but
promptly confessed to his per-
sonal embarrassment that he
had invited me to speak.
Right then and there, in a
"counter-sermon" rebuttal, he
cautioned his congregation in
typical televisionese: My mes-
sage, he said, did not necessari-
ly reflect his own opinions, or
those of his flock.
I WAS, he announced, all
wrong. He had it from The Man
himself presumably from Kis-
singer or from one of Kissinger's
flunkies: Israel had won; her se-
curity was sure.
I have not heard from the
Rabbi since, but all of us hear
from Kissinger every day. Ra-
pidly, he is establishing himself
as one of the major disasters
in the history of American for-
eign policy.
There is more than a touch of
Richard Nixon in him.
The Kissinger surface glitter
is unquestionably attractive. He
has trained an unwary world to
mistake commotion for motion.
nic and dictatorial. His view of
himself is unrealistic in the
sense that he sees himself not as
an extension of American for-
eign policy, but as the policy
He is blind to his failures
(Southeast Asia), convinced of
his successes (none), and willing
to overreach to an astonishing
degree the powers of his office
by mendacity and intrigue
(Chile, the CIA generally, the
real deal he made with Le Due
Tho in Paris on the future of
Vietnam not the abomination
for which he won the Nobel
Peace Prize).
Perhaps the most damning
thing to be said about him is
that he was able to do business
with Nixon so comfortably. Some-
what less damning is the fact
that now he finds it just as easy
to do business with President
ity nor rank incompetence
cramps his style. As for the
State Department he presumably
heads, a State Department that
is essentially anti-Semitic, and
almost rabidly so at its Middle
Eastern desks, they could not
have found a better marionette to
do their bidding, which is also
sadly Kissinger's own.
At issue is Israel. No one who
has observed Israel's fate since
her Yom Kippur War "victory"
can fail to see the Kissinger
hand that is killing her by am-
President Anwar Sadat would
not hold him in such high re-
gard otherwise. Nor would King
WHO IN the weeks following
the Yom Kippur War would have
envisioned Israel off Mt. Her-
mon, the prize she won so blood-
ily, out of Kuneitra, and now
willing to give up the Gidi and
Mitla Passes, and even Abu Ro-
deis, without some declaration as
to Israel's security, which Pres-
ident Ford now cooly savs not
even the U.S. can be prepared
to make.

day who knew the Kiss

neath the glitter that press re-
leases paint or flunkies propose
like the proverbial pig's kosher
foot. -
In fact, we look to the next
prize for which Kissinger is al-
ready angling: East Jerusalem.
ONLY LAST week, Kissin-
ger's brother-inblood, Sadat, an-
nounced the ceding of East Je-
rusalem as another pre-condition
for peace with Israel.
Why not? The Secretary, of
State has always thought big
when .it comes to. the- sacrifices
He-*H*oi of *AneV* t* make!
What was it he said about
"only six lousy kilometers" of
land over which he was recently
infuriated when Israel showed
some resistance to yet another
of his amputation proposals?
And now, his role in the sale
of U.S. arms of the most so-
phisticated variety to Lebanon,
Saudi Arabia. Iran, Jordan and
Kuwait is the most awe-iuspir-
ing yet.
Or to Abu Dhabi,'which would
have difficulty parking v,\o F.

NEW YORKThe United Na-
tions was born four years before
the midpoint of the century.
Now, three-quarters of the way
through the century it was meant
to save, there is a serious ques-
tion of how sick the United Na-
tions is, and how badly it has
been damaged by the actions of
its dominant current bloc.
My own feeling is that it has
wounded itself deeply but not
beyond retrieval. Its sickness is
that of a battlefield mentality,
sadly misplaced in an organiza-
tion which was meant not for
partisan battle but for peacemak-
ing and peace keeping
WHEN THE League of Nations
died, its death Was widely as-
cribed to inaction at a time when
action was needed. Arguing from
this, the Third World-Arab-Com-
munist alliance in the UN As-
sembly seems to have decided on
a series of almost manic actions
which change the working rules
and even the character of the

Yassir Arafat, the head of the
terrorist Palestine Liberation Or
ganization (PLO), give his group
observer status and support its
claim to establishing a new Pales-
tinian state. A second was to ex-
clude South Africa from the as-
sembly debates.
A THIRD was to set a crip-
pling time limit on Israel's recog-
nized right to answer each of its
Arab opponents.
A fourth, in another forum but
dominated by the same alliance,
was effectively to deny Israel a
regional place in UNESCO and
to cut of-' its small but symbolic
More is involved here than a
campaign against Israel by its
enemies and their allies. The
question reaches to the basic
philosophy of the United Nations.
THE SOUTH Africa issue is a
serious one constitutionally. Ear-
lier presidents of the UN Assem-
bly had ruled that no member

privileges of membership exceot

Hence the meaning of the
phrase that John Scali, the
American delegate, borrowed
from Alexis de Tocqueville, call-
ing the assembly action the
"tyranny of the majority."
NO ONE objects to majority
decisions when they are reached
in a mature, reflective way. after
giving the minorities their rights
of membership and debate.
But the 1974 assembly broke
not only with past UN prece

spirit and purpose of the organi-
You cannot have a functioning
world organization if the ma-
jority uses its strength to achieve
a takeover of it, for mastery and
riding herd on the minority ra-
ther than for healing wounds
and preventing irreparable splits.
FORTUNATELY, the assemb'y
is not in itself the United Na-
tions. The Security Council still
functions and is still the medium
through which the dialogue be-
tween the great powers and the
other members can be carried on,
using the built-in principle of
consensus which the founding
nations were careful to include
in it.
The technical organizations
are still there andunless they
follow UNESCO's hapless ex-
amplethey can still be useful.
Even the assembly is useful
since it furnishes a stage on
which the newly liberated mini
nations can dramatize their
sense of national identity.
BUT ALL this could be de-
stroyed if a majority of the mem-
ber nations, both in the assembly
and the technical organizations.,
decide to use the United Nations
as a political weapon.
Because it is the host nation,
and because of its wealth, the
United States has carried a dis-
proportionate burden of the
United Nations' costs, and the
American people have thus far
accepted the burden.
The disquiet about the United
Nations which has spread among
the Americans is not the old iso-
lationism or even a new one. It
is not even a form of American
nationalist pride.
IT IS shared by every thought-
ful person the world over who
has ever shared the dream of a
humanist world parliament.
It is a kind of heartbreak at
watching a greatrvitlty destroy

As the Yoijth Representative
on the Community Relations
Committee of the Jewish Fed-
eration. 1 "presented a "State of
Youth Activities Report" to the
committee at its opening session
of 1975. The text of my speech
is reprinted below.
"The year 1974 brought to the
Jewish Community of Hollywood
the bleakest year of progression
and development of the Jewish
Youth Community since the in-
auguration of the Jewish Youth
Council in 1971.
"Although we have had an in-
crease of Jewish youth groups in
Hollywood which at the present
numbers approximately 16. all in-
dication that the youth of our
community were heading to-
wards an identity as members of
a youth community which num-
bers anywhere from 2.000 to
4,000, and as members of the
American and World Jewish com-
munity, is now almost completely
"The Jewish Youth Council
dissolved over 13 months ago
and the state of youth activities
' has gradually declined; it is now
in its lowest regression period.
In my opinion, it will be as much
as two years before the Jewish
Youth Council will return to
"Why? At this point, the Jew-
ish community of Hollywood is
only celebrating its 30th anni-
versary, as the Jewish Federation
was founded in 1945. This is a
verv young Jewish community
and it is still at a somewhat ado-
lescent age. It is very difficult
for our community to make de-
cisions on where it wants to go
and what it wants to achieve.
"There is one decision fhat
cannot be held off until a later
time. What is going to happen
to the youth of our community?
Until the entire Jewish Com-
munity unites in its efforts to
develop the youth, the key .to the
future of the American Jewish
Community and of the survival
of Judaism, no youth council or
any organization of this nature
can exist and we will remain
fragmented and disunited with
the threat of assimilation becom-
ing more of a reality as each day
"Besides the lack of social and
cultural activities for Jewish
youth, Jewish education at the
high school level has suffered
greatly because of the lack of
cooperation and assistance among
the religious institutions of Hol-
"Jewish education is a very
serious matter and I do not feel
i that it should be a playing piece
in a political chess game. I feel
that the Jewish community has
a decision to make. Is it more
important for our area syna-
gogues to compete for individual
educational programs, none of
which compare to the Judaica
High School Program of the Mi-
ami Bureau of Jewish Education,
or to provide a central institu-
tion of Jewish learning for post
Bar/Bat Mitzvah youth from
; which the entire community can
"In my opinion, the only hope
we have at this point) is the
Jewish Community Center as a
means of uniting the youth of
our conatiunity, and finding a
place fof every teenager in its
programs; It is through the Cen-
ter that our youth will find its
identity as members of a Jewish
commun^y. One word of under-
standingfcthe Center is not try-
ing to replace our youth organi-
zations, ewiti-ry -to popular be-

our varied^prganizations by pro-
viding its members with the op-
portunity to join with all of the
members of the Jewish communi-
ty in varied programs and pro-
vides programs and activities to
those who may not be presently
affiliated with any Jewish organi-
zation. It is the vehicle through
which we may create a communi-
ty atmosphere, and isn't that
where it's all at?
"As Robert Kennedy said,
'Some men see things as they are
and say why; I dream things that
never were and say why not?' I
dream of a community where
each and every constituent mem-
ber of the CRC fully cooperates
and assists in the development of
the Jewish youth community, to
make us aware of who we are
and what we stand for. and by
doing so, securing the future of
our community and of Judaism.
"The development of a Youth
Division of the Campaign this
year is a step in the right direc-
tion; however, it will take the
guidance and effort of the entire
Jewish community to build our
youth community.
Note: the feelings which I have
shared with you above do not
reflect upon the policies an4
opinions of the organizations
mentioned, but are my own per-
sonal observations.

Last year, only 17,500 Soviet
Jews reached Israel. This is
about half of the 32,500 who emi-

We cannot encourage feelings
of futility, though. The Soviet

fidence that the sun will shine
for them in Israel. And we must
help them in their fight for free-
There are many avenues for
us to follow.
First, we can begin corre-
spondence with an individual or
family in the Soviet Union. Al-
though many letters are opened
and pre-read, eventually most let-
ters will be delivered.
This word from the outside
brings information and joy to
Soviet Jews, and a feeling of
Jewish unity will be felt by all.

Currently Being Interviewed
Are you aware of the USSR's
procedure that immediately fires
vou from your job when applica-
tion to exit is made? The family
has no way to make a living and
must live off relatives, savings,
and donations until granted per-
mission to leave.
Because of the extremely long
wait for official approval, some
families must sell personal be-
longings to put food on the table.
To get involved in the "adopt-a-
family" program, please tele-
phone the Federation office.
Also, we can protest the sad
state of affairs to the United
Nations, to the leaders of the
Soviet Union, and to our own
leaders in government. Surely,
we cannot remain silent if the
Jews in the USSR find it impos-
sible to do so.

New Propaganda Offensive
Soviet authorities are attempt-
ing a new approach to the in-
creasing numbers of emigration
applications in Derbent.
Local officials allegedly offer-
ed to release P.O.C. (Prisoner of
Conscience) Pietr Pinkhasov if
he can persuade his wife and
six children to return from Israel
where they went shortly after his
arrest. Authorities would then
use this "spectacular return'' to
try to squelch the recent wave
of requests for exit documents.
Death Sentence Passed
Mikhail Leviev, 56. who had
lived and worked in Moscow as
a store manager, was sentenced
to death by firing squad.
Leviev, arrested the day after
receiving emigration permission,
was charged with "economic
crimes." This is the first instanca
in many-years in which the death
sentence was received for this
type of charge.
Further curiosities arise whea
one considers the highly unusual
development of a two-vear long
investigation, since Soviet law
limits the period of pre-trial de-
tention to 9 months.
Appeals to Soviet authorities,
including President Nikolai Pod-
gorny, asking clemency in view
of the particularly harsh sentence
and absence of due process of

gorng-on-60 explains how his im-
mersion in Judaica propelled
him into a. world of chaotic and
always pressured decision-making
that can be likened to the presi-
dency in microcosm.
ALTHOUGH Michael David
Bakst (invariably mispronounced
"Baskt" or even "Basket") is
probably one of the youngest
heads of hospitals in the United
States, half an hour of conversa-
tion attests to the how and why
of it as the listener jumps from
an iceflow of whimsey to another
of controlled but nonetheless pro-
found compassion for his fellow
man to yet a third of such in-
volved philosophical dimension
that it boggles the intellect.
"Steel trap" is what comes to
mind as one tries to assimilate all
that knowledge, all that erudi-
Born in Queens, N.Y.. of a Con-
servative Jewish family. Michael
was the clown of his Hebrew
class: he confesses that he was
almost given up as a lost cause.
BUT THE quiet consistency ot
his family's faith sustained him
until he was old enough to un-
derstand what being Jewish was
really all about.
He remembers when his father-
in-law to-be donated a Torah to
his temple and there was joyous
dancing in the streets, and that
his pride in and love for his
people grew.
Today, administrator of Com-
munity Hospital of South Brow-
ard, he talks about "the all en-
compassing and perrasive thing
Judaism is that separates Jews
from everyone else in the world."
Lynn Krivoshev, literally his
childhood sweetheart, he majored
in humanities at Hofstra Univer-
sity because the "impact people
have on society and their ability
to mold if fascinated him.
Being pragmatic at the same
time, he went on to obtain his
Master's degree in business ad-
ministration, specifically hospital
Formerly administrator of Mi-
ami's Highland Park hospital,
which he took over at age 26,
Michael Bakst was, indeed, the
youngest person in such a posi-
tion in the country, and even at
29 probably retains that distinc-
chose found its motivation in his
wish to fashion his own life-style
from an amalgam of the careers
of the two men father and
unclewho most profoundly in-
fluenced him as a bov. one a
pharmacist, the other a physician.
And it also sorang from the cul-
ture which molded his lifethat
of the empathic Jewish people.
"You have to remember," he
explains, "that the Jewish race
has been kicked around for gen-
erations, actually centuries, and
it is a credit to the Jews that
they've alwavs been able not only
to come back but to care about
their fellow man at the same
"Sometimes self preservation
gets in the way of remembering
that others are also suffering, but
Judaism belies that philosophy.
We have always cared, whether
it's for the ill or injured or for
the ravaged and murdered. It's
barically the same thing."
ON THE Soviet Union: "No
government has the right to dic-
tate rel'^ion, yet that is what the
Russia is are doing. But look at
their inconsistency: thev decree
the non-existence of religion, yet
stamp the ropers of their Jewish
citizens with a religious denom-
On Israel: "It is a state that
symbolizes centuries uoon cen-
turies of struggle, a state whose
continued existence will not be
denied. Can anyone doubt the
tenacity of the Jewish people?"
Then a twinkle comes into his
eyes and he says: "Well, really,

? Ask Abe ?
Stone, Sapir Head Roster Of \
Economic Conference Speakers
QUESTION: What is the name
of the mother of our Patriarch
Albany, N.Y.
ANSWER: There is no specific
reference in the narrative of the
Torah giving the name of Abra-
ham's mother. His father's name
is spelled out very clearly in
Genesis 11:27. "Now this is the
line of Terah: Terah begot
Abram, Nahor and Haran."
Later during the pronounce-
ment of the Covenant, God chang-
ed Abram's name to Abraham.
"As for me this is my Covenant
with you: you shall be the
father of a multitude of nations.
And you shall no longer be called
Abram but your name shall be
Abraham." (Ibid 17:4,5.
HOWEVER, in the legends and
folklore of Rabbinic literature
we find the name of Abraham's
mother. "Terah married Emtelai
the daughter of Kornabo, and the
offspring of their union was
Abraham." (The legends of the
Jews by Louis Ginzberg. Volume
1, page 186.)
The Legends of the Jews by
Ginzberg (1873-1953 C.B.) is a
chronological compilation from
many original sources of all Jew-
ish legends of Biblical personages
and events covering the period
from the Creation to Queen
Esther. It is translated from the
German by Henrietta Szold. It
consists of seven volumes with
many notes.
Mr. Ginzberg gives as his source
for Emtelai a passage in the Tal-
mud (Tractate Baba Batra 91a).
The Encyclopaedia Judaica in
the article on Terah, Volume 15,
page 1014. citing the same Tal-
mtidic source, spells the name as
IN THE TALMUD this name
is spelled with the Hebrew let
ters Aleph Mem Tav Lamed -
Aleph-Yud. Since there are no
nekudot (vowel indications) in
the text, either spelling in the
English could be correct.
This particular passage in the
Talmud consists of a discussion
about mothers, and one of the
sages in the Talmud says the fol-
lowing: "Abraham's mother was
Emtalai (or Amathlai) the daugh-
ter of Kornabo." (Ibid 91a)
Rabbi Shlomo the son of Itz-
chak, the French sage and schol-
ar, known bv his initials as
Ra.-hi (1040-1105 C.E. i who made
commentaries on the Torah and
the Talmud, makes the following
comment on this particular pas-
sage: "Because the names of
Isaac's mother (Sarah) and Ja-
cob's mother (Rebecca) are re-
membered, it is necessary to
know the name of Abraham's
mother." (Ibid 91a)
The following legend about
Abraham's birth is told in great
detail in the Legends of the Jews
by Louis Ginzberg:
N1MROD, WHO was the king
and deity at that time and place
where Terah lived, was also a
cunning astrologer. It was mani-
fest to him that a man would be
born in his day and would rise up
against him and triumphantly
give the lie to his religion.
The king then proclaimed
throughout his whole kingdom
that all pregnant women be taken
to a special building and the mid-
w'ves were ordered to kill all
male infants at birth. According
to this legend no less than 70.000
mate children were slaughtered.
The mother of Abraham did
not acknowledge her pregnancy,
left the city in great terror,
wandered toward the desert and
gave birth to a son in a cave, and
left him there.
It was after his emergence
from the cave that he saw the
sun, moon and stars for the first
time. He proclaimed the new
faith of one eternal God who
sets them all in motion.
IT IS interesting to note that
the story of the birth of Abraham
and his escape from death in
the legends is similar to the
story of the birth of Moses and
his escape from death in the nar-
rative of the Torah.

I was appalled by the lette'

because little of the money goes

Children in Israel are not

of dollars for the survival of the

This has not happened in other
places of the world. The fact that
Saudi Arabia is a rich country
is no indication that its people
are well fed There is hunger even

Celebrate what IS?
"Well," replied Leslie, "as one
focuses on what is right on a
situation, there's an atmosphere
established for the circumstance
to move in the right direction.
For instance, if your wife or
husband is angry with you
even if he or she is totally
wrong you can begin to es-

attention to what is right about

L Differences Wjth
!4 Soviets are Not
f Narrowed-Ford
WASHINGTON(JTA)President Ford indicated at his
press confer?nce hers that differences between the United States
and the Soviet Union on approaches to Mideast peace negotiations
fcad not been narrowed in his Vladivostok talks with Soviet Com-
munist Party Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev.
Ford said the talks had brought about "a higher degree of
understanding" about each country's position on negotiations.
THE UNITED States favors step-by-step bilateral talks be-
tween Israel and the Arab states, while the Soviet Union wants
resumption of the Geneva peace conference, for which it is co-
sponsor with the United States, which met briefly last December
and not since.
The President made his comment in response to a ques-
tion as to whether he and Brezhnev had discussed "some kind of
trade-off whereby Israel would deal with the PLO and the PLO
would recognize Israel's right to exist as a state."
Ford replied, "We didn't get into that detail."
HE ADDED that "Israel has indicated that it would not
negotiate with the PLO'' and that "we have no way of forcing
them to do so."
His talks with Brezhnev on the Middle East, he said, in-
volved discussion of "our position and their position, and, as
we discussed it, I think we came to a higher degree of agree-
ment in that our position was understood by them and the pros-
pects of the Geneva agreement was understood by us."

We OK Transfer
Of Iranian Jets
To Jordan Forces
WASHINGTON (JTA)The State Department has confirmed
that the United States had approved Iran's transfer of 24 American-
built F-5 interceptor-fighters to the Jordanian Air Force.
Department spokesman Rob-
ert Anderson said the transfer
was allowed because "both coun-
tries are close friends of the
United States," and "Jordan has
a legitimate need for them."
HE ADDED, "Our policy is to
support regional cooperation and

small units and no threat to Is-

transfer, Anderson said, "Any-
one following events over the
past few years will understand

Free Emigration the Issue
Still, it seems wise that American Jews have not re-
sponded in hasty anger.
For one thing, the disthct possibility exists that the
Soviets rejected tne trade act not b= cause of the I-M-V
Amendment, but because of the ludicrously low limit Con-
gress imposed on the amount of credit the Soviets would
receive from the Import-Export Bank.
In addition, there is still no reason to rule out the
possibility of a power struggle within the Kremlin itself, as
a conseauence of which the trade act became an almost
accidental victim unrelated to the problem of free emigra-
In the end, of course, there is the whole question of
detente, wnicn tne aarmrustration believes is so necessary
to the peaceful future of U.S.-Soviet relations.
Whatever view one takes of the Soviet rejection of the
act, one priority continues to exist, and that is the right
Jews and other minorities ought to have to laave the So-
viet Union unmolested.
This principle, we must continue to espouse and to
fight for. What we must avoid in the future, however, ia
making it dependent on something else.
That is what the J-V-M Amendment did. That i3 why
we opposed it.

Chaplain of the Jewish
Federations of Browai d County
My work as chaplain of hospitals
and other institutions in Broward
County brings me into certain
critical situations where I can be-
come ""Johnny-on-the Spot."
Some may interpret this in the
light of the Yiddish concept known
at "Bashert"whose cold English
equivalent is "predestined," but
this never does justice to the
I think of the time I stepped out
of an elevator and a woman stared
at me as if she knew I was the
person she was seeking. She may
have seen my badge, which re-
vealed that I was the "Jewish Chap
lain." Her whole being shook with
flight as she blurted out. "I need
a rabbi!"
Her teenage son had had some
relatively routine surgery, but
had not come out of the anes-
thetic six hours later.
She and her husband felt that
they wanted to pray, to retain their
inner strength while they were liv-
ing through the most trying hours
of their lives. The story has a
happy ending. The son emerged
from unconsciousness 12 hours
after the operation ended.
At the jail I recently visited some
Jewish inmates. As I was about to
take leave, the police ushered in a
woman who was hysterical and was
crying that she had been mistreated
by the police who had arrested her
for a traffic violation and subse-
quent resistance of arrest.
It turned out she was a Jewish
tourist and both she and the police
were most happy that there was a
rabbi on hand to handle a most
unfortunate situation.
After talking with her at length,
I was able to pacify her and to en-
courage her to put up bond and
avoid the humiliation of a vacation
in jail.
On another occasion I dropped
into a hospital which I rarely visit,
there being few Jewish patients as
a rule, and I give priority to those
with heavy Jewish censuses.
There I met a very young man
who had been in an automobile
accident in which one of his best
friends had been killed. There
were many matters which lay on
his heart and he relished the reali-
zation that here was a rabbi with
whom he "could immediately estab-
lish a rapport and who would help
guide'him in findirfffcstJm'e answers
through these dark hours.
As I think of these incidents,

Chaplain-on-the-Spot. I feel blessed
that I can be in situations where I
can be of service to people in dis-
tress. I also realize that often there
are less obvious situations where
all of us are Johnnies-on-the-Spot,
only we don't really know it.

help, recognition, or consolation

temple projects, among them the
first $40,000 to aid in moving the
site from Monroe Street to its
present quarters on 46th Avenue.
The resulting building subse-
quently became known as the
Jack and Rachel Shapiro Reli-
gious School.
Other contributions have in-
cluded the ark in the sanctuary
and the small chapel, plus a spe-
cial endowment begun by them
to enable the temple to subsi-
dize youngsters' summer Israeli
The Shapiros have also been
greatly involved in the work of
the Jewish Federation, the ZOA,
Israel Histadrut and B'nai B'rith.

IRS Became
, U.S.A.
/""ATHOLIC AND Jewish organizations appear to have passed
former President Nixon's weird test for patriotism, but the
National Council of Churches of Christ and the Unitarian Society
definitely flunked.
Such the first impression one might get in checking over the
IRS list of 99 organizations under investigation as far back as
July, 1969. by direction of the Nixon Administration.
WHAT DID Mr. Nixon want the Internal Revenue Service
to watch for? According to information flushed out by a Ralph
Nader group, thanks to the new Freedom of Information Act, the
tax sleuths were asked to sniff out "subversive organizations of
all kinds." including "militant and revolutionary organizations."
So along with the National Council of Churches and the Uni-
tarian Society, we find the Institute for American Democracy,
Urban League, and Fund for the Republic listed.
Somehow, it seems a disservice to the United Synagogue of
America, the Knights of Columbus, and various ecumenical coun-
cils to be omitted from such a glamorous roster.
AND INASMUCH as Americans for Democratic Action made
the list not many notches above the John Birch Society, why didn't
orders go forth from the Oval Room, where this heady brew of
ultra-patriotism was concocted, to include the United States Cham
ber of Commerce, the Campfire Girls, and the Daughters of the
American Revolution?
This newest revealed trick, this establishment of a Junior
Plumbers Outfit in a top governmental office maintained by tax-
payers for collecting taxes and not for fomenting distrust of
fe!low Americans, is one more indication of assaults upon the pro-
tection guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, one more piece of evi-
dence that paranoia, at the summit of political power in America
can pull us toward totalitarian rule.
AS IT turned out, if any tax returns needed to be scrutinized,
those of the President himself did: and if subversion and revolu-
tion were being practiced and hatched, clues might be found in
the White House tapes much more quickly than in the offices of
Protestants and Other Americans United for Separation of Church
nd State.
In the same season that brought us the gloomy revelation
at the ousted administration had forced the IRS to serve the
rveillance whims of a power-hungry chief executive, we were
eated to an expose of the use of a James Bond type of counter-
telligence activity by the late J. Edgar Hoover. And here again,
ose Americans who have learned anything from the horrible
story of police state governments have good reason to tremble.
The former FBI director's program for creating internal dis-
nsion within certain organizations shocked Attorney General Wil-
m B. Saxbe. And that's news in itself.
SAXBE MADE it dear that he abhorred the Hoover practices
planting false reports about men and women connected with
oups under investigation and that he disdained the use of phone
and anonymous letters calculated to smear the reputation of
sons trailed by the FBI.
Sad to relate, our new FBI director, Clarence M. Kelley, who
up till now given every promise of bringing nothing but honor
ie operations of our top investigating bureau, came down
ily in defense of the Hoover tactics.
Coming from the FBI official who, in the course of hearings
he Senate Judiciary Committee, appeared as one who would
r countenance such crude shenanigans, this action by Mr.
ley is bad news.
WE CAN best begin tovshake off the threats to our freedom
a'ed by these dreary chapters in the history of the IRS by
ing those internal revenue authorities and investigative of-
who refused to bend their knees to men in power advocating
olesome and dangerous practices.
eyond that, we need to insist upon safeguarding for our
y, our freedom, and our right to disagree with the other
s ideas about patriotism and subversion. All this especially
ime when Big Brother can put computers, wire taps, and
electronic wizardry to work for questionable purposes.
Arab Minorities Fight,
To Help Israel's Security
<;OME OF our neighbors had privately confessed
to a sense of ill-ease that the gardener who
takes care of the extensive grounds around our
buildings is a Bedouin. Still, good gardeners are
hard to find, and the young man seemed diligent
and reliable.
One day, he came to us and announced that
he was leaving. He had volunteered for service
in the Israel Army, had been accepted, and was
off to serve the fatherland.
IN THIS manner, we had brought home to
us in striking fashion the existence of the non-
Jewish, or minority groups in the country who,
though Arabic-speaking, have no love for the
Arabs, and consider that they are far better off
under tolerant, democratic Israel, than under any
Arab government.
Chief among these are the Druze. There are
some 38.000 Druzes Irving in 18 villages in the
Galilee, two of which are here on Mount Carmel
almost on our doorstep.
HUNDREDS OF them had served as volun-
teers in the army until 1956, when they insisted
that as citizens of the country enjoying equal
rights they must also assume equal obligations.
Since then, they have been subject to conscrip-
tion like Jewish youth. Theirs has been a long
history of clashes with their Arab neighbors.
In the Golan Heights are 8,000 more Druzes,
who are today torn between their desire for free-
dom with Israel, and their fear that the Golan,
and they along with it, might be handed back
to the Syrians.
rpHE LONDON Sunday Times has a cooperating
group of journalists whose primary function
is to analyze, appraise and objectively report on
important news.
This group is known as The Insight Team,
and they have produced a monumental book,
"The Yom Kippur War" (New York, Doubleday
& Co., $10, 514 pp.).
Arab propagandists and others have been
trying to have the Egyptian and Syrian attack
on Israel known as the October, 1973 War so that
many will forget that the Arab unprovoked at-
tack was begun on the holiest day in the Jewish
THE BOOK'S importance lies more in the
accounts of the activities of Russia prior, during
and after the war, the lengthy preparations by
Sadat and Assad for the onslaught, and the pere-
grinations and double-dealing of Henry Kissinger.
It comes as no surprise to our readers that
the American State Department has been and
is anti-Semitic. President Truman reported this
in his memoirs, and the Insight Team repeats
this fact. What is surprising is that Henry Kis-
singer wanted to have Israel suffer a "limited
defeat," and that it was he who held up the
rearming of Israel for five days.
A smaller group are the Circassians. They are
Moslems but not Arabs. Their ancestors were
oppressed by the Czar in the Caucasus and came
to Israel about a hundred years ago.
THEY TOO are now drafted into the Israel
army. They, like the Druzes, have lost their men-
folk In Israel's battles for survival. The village
of Reihaniya, attacked by terrorists last month,
is comprised of CircassiansCherkessim they are
called in Hebrew.
Bedouins and Christians may be accepted as
volunteers. The Bedouins have rendered valuable
service as trackers in the Negev and as members
of border patrols.
While some of the non-Jews are attached to
various outfits, many or them prefer to serve
in the all-minorities unit. The reason: they have
a common language -Arabic; their food prefer-
ences are similar; a sense of pride in their own
THERE HAVE been no problems of adjust-
ment or integration In the army, but there have
been occasional problems on the home front.
When tempers run hot after an Arab atrocity,
as at Maalot. Kiryat Shmoneh, Nahariya or Bet
Shean, the local populace sometimes loses its
sense of discrimination, and any Arabic-speaking
youth they come across serves as an outlet for
their indignation, even if he is in uniform, and
trying to help them.
The minorities unit is developing its own
officers, but the highest rank attained thus far
is a Druze major.
British Journalists Offer
Their View of the 73 War
THE AUTMORS have had access to files,
cables, and interviews with people so that they
can supply dates, times of days, and other sup-
porting data for their observations.
When Kissinger stated that there was a
meeting of the National Security Council during
the war to determine what, if anything, should
be done to have Israel avert a tragic defeat, there
was no such meeting. We are informed that the
meeting consisted of "Kissinger, Kissinger and

tles make each encounter unfold before the read-
er's eyes. The personality sketches of each of the

NEVER IN Israel's brief history has there
been so much discordance within the ranks of
the military. There was a disastrous foul-up of
the intelligence reports.
Israel was saved from defeat by the inepti-
tude of the Egyptians after their preliminary
successes and the ultimate bravery of the Israel
Defense Forces. The authors are objective, and
they spare no one from Golda Meir down. This

tlute to Comic Harry HirscMicId Should Have Been Offered Sooner
SORRY that this salute to Harry Herschfield is
being written after his death.
It gives me a feeling of guilt that I didn't write
admiration for the inimitable Harry while he was
|11 alive.
HERSCHFIELD. WHO passed on recently at the
of 89, was an extraordinary person. A cartoonist
raconteur pa rexcellence, he was a fine booster for
cause of Judaism.
Few alive remember his cartoon character, Abe
pible, but many will tell you how amusing Hersch-
was as a master of ceremonies and a quipster.
He did a column for an Orthodox Jewish paper in
York, "The Jewish Press." In it, as well as in his
s. he propelled his audience, heaving with laughter,
rds a subtle anoreciation of the values of Judaism.
[HE WAS also a laughingjrotester of extremism,
pi kinds,
larry was an example par excellence of the old
|at when you tell a Jew a joke, he responds: "Let
my way."
He once heard the story about the woman who
was given two gifts by her nouveau riche son, a Picasso
and a Jaguar. He calls her to ask whether they arrived,
and she says: "One did." Asked which one, she says:
"I don't know."
RETORTED HERSCHFIELD, "In 1910, I first told
the story about a Michaelangelo and a Stutz."
The world is darker without Hersehfield. He did
brighten it up for thousands for a long time. He proved
that, despite his "tzores," the Jew knows how to laugh
and to bring laughter.
May his shining spirit continue to give us a lift
for many years to come.

THE NEW House of Representatives bus the
most Jews ever: 22.
The Senate has the most elected Jews: three. It
had 3 before, but Howard Metzenbaum of Ohio, was
appointed. The newest Jewish Senator, Richard Stone,
of Miami, is like his colleagues, Ribicoff and Javits,
one who works at his faith.
The most Jewish Congresswomen ever to sit at
one time, three, are in Washington. Bella Abzug, of
Manhattan, and Elizabeth Holtzman, of Brooklyn, are
joined by Mrs. Gladys Spellman, of Baltimore.
The most eloquent leader of a State Senate is
Joseph Lieberman, of New Haven, Conn., who as I
once predicted, will be the first Jewish President of
the U.S. Keep your eye on him.
The most votes ever accorded a Jewish candidate
in Georgia went to Elliot Levitas, of Atlanta, that
state's first Jewish Congressman.
