Credit Roof Moved

mier Yitzhak Rabin has rejected
the version that the Soviets had
cancelled the trade agreemet*
with the U.S. because it was
linked to Jewish emigration.
In a statement delivered at the
weekly Cabinet session. Rabin
said he was convinced there was
no foundation for that theory.
HOWEVER, whatever the rea-
sons for the Soviet move were,
Rabin promised that the politi-
cal campaign for the right of
Soviet Jewry to emigrate, and
not to be harassed, would con-
tinue to be one of the central
issues in the life of World Jewry.
Rabin expressed the belief that
eventually the Soviet govern-
ment, too, would understand the
need to allow emigration.
"The struggle of Soviet Jew9
for aliya preceded all agreement
on trade," he said.
Israel would, therefore, con-
tinue to support Soviet Jews who
wish to emigrate, "because of out
elementary conviction that it is
the basic privilege of every Jew
wherever he is to eome to his
homeland, Israel," Rabin de-
fessor of religion at Temple Uni-
versity, who admits he had
strongly supported the UN since
its founding, says that he has
j reached "the painful conviction
that the UN Assembly now re-
sembles a thoughtless mob and
I no longer conducts its affairs as
a reasoned or rational body."

"The recent diplomatic assault
on Israel in the United Nation?

Letter to The Edi
EDITOR, Floridian-Shofur
I shuddered and was shocked
when I read the report of the
remarks of Senator Percy and
Congressman Stevenson of Illi-
nois regarding the actions of the
Jewish community in reference
to the Soviet Union.
However. I really sat up and
took notice when Senator Ja-
vits of New York spoke up
along the same lines.
Have we gone too far in our
publicity and public relations ef-
forts in behalf of Soviet Jewry?
All of our national Jewish or-
ganizations have their Soviet
Jewry Committees. All of them
are doing public relations work
with the Congress. But the ques-
tion is, have we succeeded in
securing the release of many
more Soviet Jews and is Israel
in a position to support them,
house them and educate them?
Seems to me, we should get a
full and complete report and
what our future actions should
be in every direction.

Young Circle in Hollywood.
"The Rise of David Levinsky"
by Abraham Cahan, the late edi-
tor of the "Jewish Daily For-
ward," will be reviewed by
Broward County Court Judge
Morton L. Abram.
This is a moving narrative of
the early Jewish immigrants
who fled Russian persecution at
the turn of the century to find a
haven in a free America and
how they helped to build the in-
tellectual and economic struc-
ture here, helping to advance
the standard of American- life
as they advanced their own.
The impact of their contri-
bution to America in science,
music, art, and literature will be
summarized by Judge Abram.

statement of a prominent social-
ist politician that he had been

member has caused unrest and
indignation in the Socialist Par-
ty today.

Kreisky opiwsed any pro-Nazi
statements to win right-wingers
for the Socialists.
The sources said a Socialist
Party Presidium meeting would
deal with the matter later

end of World War II.
However, political sources said
they may lose the majority in
the forthcoming elections be-
cause of right-wing and nation-

made enemies of nationalist
forces when they tried to intro-
duce two-language roadsigns in

soeaking areas in southern parts
of the province.

Problem of Terrorism
The two attacks within one week by Arab terrorists
at France's Orly airport demonstrates the truth oi the U.S.
Government and Israeli warnings that unless the interna-
tional community acts to stop terrorism aimed at interna-
tional aviation no nation will be safe.
No other country in Western Europe has been as pro-
Arab as France. No other country has acted as little to
stop terrorism. France's Foreign Minister, Jean Sauvag-
nargues, has even met with Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation leader Yasir Arafat
Yet this did not prevent the attacks at Orly. West
European newspapers have been calling for reassess-
, ment of the policy that backing the Arab cause will buy
territorial security. They have suggested that the terrorists
may have even been egged on by the relative impunity
they enjoy.
It may be too much to expect Western Europe, and
especially France, to change its Mideast stance, although
the Aurore, a French paper, recently said the time has
come to stop terrorist attacks on aviation.
For some reason, the French seem determined to be-
lieve that they can achieve immunity from the terrorism,
as their "deal" with Egypt's President Sadat last week
indicates: guns for promises that the terrorism will cease.
But surely all pther nations must realize the time has
some. Jor the civilised world to--unite- against acts' of
barbarism; "oi ':- ''"'
The Job Security Game
Israel's current economic difficulties inevitably bring
into sharper focus the problem of new immigrants' em-
ployment and job security. Publicly, officials prefer not to
admit that a very real problem exists.
But behind the scenes a small group of Cabinet Min-
isters, Histadrut leaders, Knesseters and senior Absorption
Ministry officials are discussing it intensively, trying to
solve the inherent contradiction between the socialist
fundamental principle of "last in, first out" and the no
less important principle for Israel of successful and
equitable absorption of immigrants.
The principle of "last in, first out" means that in the
event of lay-offs or staff reductions, the last employee to
be hired is the first to be fired.
This principle has become an integral part of all la-
bor contracts in Israel and has thereby acquired a strong
and recognized legal status. Attempts to violate the prin-
ciple are tantamount to breaches of the law.
In many instances, the employees most recently
hired are, naturally, new immigrants, and thus, they are
the first candidates to be fired.
On the other hand, Israel now more than ever
is energetically striving to attract newcomers. How can
Israel settle the contradiction between its need for ohm
and the economic problems and labor laws which may
put the olim in danger of repeated dismissals?
The question is no longer merely hypothetical. The
advent of incipient signs of recession have already shown
that immigrants are the first to be asked to look for new
ft it ft
Solution is Sorely Needed
Avrnham Hasson, chairman of the Absorption and
Development Department of the Histadrut, confirms that
during recent weeks he has been faced with several
cases of dismissal notices handed to immigrant workers.
The Absorption and Development Department has
solved almost all these individual cases by direct con-
tact with the employers.
As a result of Hasson's intervention, most of the em-
ployers concerned have agreed to rescind the dismissals.
But Hasson who himself came to Israel as an immi-
grant from Chile in 1954 admits that a general and
more fundamental approach is needed to tackle the root
problem nationwide.
According to Hasson, the vulnerability of new immi-
grants on the labor market, highlighted with the current
possibility of economic recession, has had previous ex-
Hasson explains that some employers consistently,
as a matter of policy, fire immigrants after two years of
employment in order to avoid their attaining tenure.
Moreover, older immigrants are often discriminated
against in job-hunting by employers who prefer younger
local men, Hasson points out, too, that in some firms
members of workers committees most of Oriental
origin openly demonstrate hostility towards the Soviet
and Western (Ashkenazi) newcomers.
Some equitable solution to the problem is needed,
and it is about time that a general legislative position
be taken by the government to prevent more of these
hardships imposed on the newcomers Israel so ardently

cold shoulder to the desecration
of burial places on the Mount of

historically priceless tombstones

SAN DIBGO In our pursuit
of what William James called
"the Bitch Goddess, Success,'' we
sometimes forget that it carries
a heavy cost with it.
Hugh Hefner has recently been
discovering that success and sus-
tained publicity as a culture sym-
bol make a man a ready target
of attack, and may carry woe for
some who are associated with
IT HAS meant woe for his
former secretary, Bobbie Arn-
stein. who got marginally involv-
ed with a heroin case and paid
the final penalty for her weak-
I knew Bobbie for many years
while she worked for Hefner and
had a. chance to talk. with her
whenever I came, te Chicago. I
write, this as an inadequate me-
morial to a delightful, delicate
girl, bruised by life, not strong
enough to take its buffeting,
HER FIANCE and one true
love had been killed in an
auto accident. She later loved
others, but not wisely. She walk-
ed a thin dangerline with them
in her effort to fill the aching
void in her. One of her men got
her tangled with his drug ad-
She was arrested, tried and
given a 15-year conditional prison
term, presumably to be reduced
or canceled if she implicated her
employer, Hugh Hefner.
Frightened and confused, un-
able cither to give evidence that
wasn't true or face an intolerable
prison sentence, she locked her-
self in a Chicago hotel room and
ended her life.
THERE IS also a larger aspect
to Bobbie's story, about the ad-
ministration of justice in
America. In the Watergate case
we witnessed the legitimate use
of plea-copping to squeeze out in-
formation in a great public cause.
But using it to push around a
sensitive, distraught girl in a
highly conjectural Justice De-
partment operation which seems
to have had no base of evidence
that strikes me as a high abuse
of the administrative justice sys-
Even more disturbing is the
"contract" story which Hefner
broke in his Chicago press con-
ference after her death.
SHE WAS called in by an as-
sistant prosecutor, told that there
was a contract out for her death
and advised not tp trust "friend
or foe.'' Since she would be un-
likely to trust foes, the implied
warning was that seme powerful
"friend" Hefner? wouldn't
hesitate to eliminate, her in un-
derworld fashion.
The proseutor's office doesn't
challenge the story but insists
that it did get tips about a con-
tract from two separate sources.
Asked what the sources were, the
answer is silence.
One can understand the re-
luctance to betray confidential
information. But where a woman
was harried to her death, and
where the very integrity of the
prosecutor's office is in question,
some way should be found of
satisfying the public that the
threats were real and not con-

ee By BOB KtRBU, Executive Director,
Jewish Federation of South Broward, flic.
We can never forget those dark hours of the Yom Kippur War
when our prayers were shattered by the roar of gunfire spreading
death and destruction for the people of Israel. It was as if the entire
Jewish people was under attack.
A new Jewish consciousness was forged. We became a family.
We acted as one.
We understood the full meaning of our long-standing commit-
ment to respond, through our Federations and Welfare Funds, to
the totality of Jewish human needs at home, overseas, and especially
in Israel.
With the Yom Kippur War, we came of age, individually and
as members of the Jewish community. The past lives in us, but we
cannot live in the past.
We acknowledge the interdependence of Jews and Jewish prob-
lems wherever they exist. We recognize our obligation to care for
the aged, the sick, the poor, the deprived, and to provide for the
intensive needs of Jewish education in our communities.
Today we must act for the living. Israel's very reason for being
is to provide home and haven for Jews seeking refuse from oppres-
sion. They are our responsibility.
In 1975 critical challenges confront the people of Israel. The
dramatic exodus from the Soviet Union immigrant families in
Ma'alot and Kiryat Shemona, living in the shadow of terror .
returning soldiers whose lives were disrupted children of earlier
generations of immigrantsthey all look to us for the means to build
life and hope.
This is the challenge we must resolve, and we will if we stand
together as one.
The massive needs in Israel and here at home, one year after
the Yom Kippur War. are compelling and inescapable realities. Israel
is under enormous strain to restore its economy and to meet the
mountainous costs of security, after the dislocation of a war which
cost the nation its entire gross national product for a full year. And
yet there is no prospect of peace.
Its people look to the Jews of the world to help provide for the
tens of thousands of immigrants who continue to pour in, to help
absorb those already there, and to help build the kind of society which
is Israel's historic purpose.
At home, we are confronted with compelling national and local
needs of great urgency. We cannot relax in our determination to
upgrade the quality of our own Jewish life, nor can we postpone the
grievance problems of our own disadvantaged. Both overseas and
here, costs and services suffer from the extraordinary inflation.
We know well the interdependence of what we do to build
strong North American Jewish communities and what we do to pro-
vide maximum aid in Israel and for Jews in other lands.
The American Jewish response in 1974 dwarfed every previous
achievement. The $725 million committed by our U.S. and Canadian
communities for global human needs almost doubled what we pro-
vided in the previous crisis year of 1967.
But that response fell short of meeting those needs, and the re-
quirements are even greater in 1975.
The answer lies not alone in the generosity of our contributors.
We critically need more volunteer workers, with the ability, knowledge,
and commitment to reach every potential contributor effectively'
Concentrated problems to recruit and train workers are central to
greater campaign success.
The hundreds of leadership gifts already made for 1975, surpass-
ing even the peak levels of 1974, testify to what can be done. These
hundreds must be multiplied into thousands of gifts of equal gen-
eros.ty. Our Federation has the capacity and-knowledge to achieve
this objective. As I See It ... the issue is implementation

For Israel Wanes
WASHINGTON For the first time, resistance is building
up on Capitol HiH against what some legislators are these days
calling "automatic approval."
Among senators joining the move are Charles Percy, Re-
publican of Illinois, and Adlai Stevenson III, a Democrat also
of Illinois.
Percy last week called for
greater flexibility in negotia-
tions with the Arabs.
"Israel should not count on
always having 70 senators
and automatic approval of
negotiation. That's past,", he
Stevenson, in an address
before the annual Israel Bond
"Man of the Year" dinner irj
Chicago, gave his -listeners
what none of them paid to
hear: a warning that the time is not far off when Israel will
have to deal with the Palestine Liberation Organization.
"History, even recent history, has taught us that today's
impossibilities can become tomorrow's possibilities."
And Sen. Daniel Inouye (D., Hawaii), chairman of the
Senate Appropriations subcommittee, told Israeli officials dur-
ing his recent tour of the Middle East that they no longer have
a chance for "the kind of support" they were given by U.S.
grants in the past.

"Odessa. File" is not Fiction
PARIS The film, "The Odessa File," based on
the novel of the same name which depicts a world-wide organi-
zation of Nazi war criminals and former SS officers, is not
fiction but the truth, according to Pierre Bloc, president of the
Committee Against Racism and Anti-Semitism
"We believe there are still about 100 war criminals who
are free and we want to find them," Bloc said. He cited as only
one example, Klaus Barbie, the "butcher of Lyons." who is
living in Bolivia and so far has managed to evade all attempts
to have him extradited to France.
Bloc could not say whether the Nazi network is as wide-
spread as the one described in "The Odessa File"
He noted, however, that a recent meeting of Fascist and
Naz, organizations in southern France drew members from all
corners of the globe.

have been financing and arming
him secretly for years, because
his is the political style they un-

"The action of the Soviet Union in repudiating its 1872 trade
agreement with the United States is a regrettable development.
"The limitation of the amount of American credits in the Export-
Import Bank authorization, the shorter duration of the 1974 Trade
Act and possible political considerations inside the Kremlin may be
significant factors in this reversal of Soviet policy.
Whatever the reasons, we share the sentiment of the great ma-
jority of Americans in supporting improved relations and an easing
of tensions between our country and the Soviet Union. One measure
of that sentiment is the expression by the Congress, as contained" in
the Trade Bill signed by the President, of our nation's commitment
toward the expansion of human rights among countries with which
our country trades. We reiterate our support of that commitment.
"Finally, and nost importantly, we express and reaffirm our
pledge of support to our fel'ow-Jews in the Soviet Union in their
heroic strugple to be free. Their courase has inspired our efforts in
their behalf. Those efforts will now be intensified. We continue to

The 1,000 families seeking

(R., 111.) which they character-
ized as a "shocking change of
policy" toward Israel.
The Senator, just returned
from a tour of Israel and Arab
countries, told newsmen in
Washington that Israel was in-
transigent, that PLO chieftain
Yasir Arafat was "relatively
speaking, a moderate" and that
Israel could not count on Amer-
ican support if it was responsi-
ble for launching a new war
in the Middle East.
breakfast meeting with journal-
ists Jan. 28, drew an angry re-
sponse from Maynard I. Wish-
ner, chairman of the public af-
fairs committee of the Jewish
United Fund which represents
36 Jewish organizations in the
Greater Chicago area.
Wlshner said Jewish commu-
nal leaders were "shocked and
dismayed" by Percy's views and
"are requesting an urgent
meeting with the Senator for
clarification of the statements."
Percy, whose pro-Israel vot-
ing record in the Senate and
public statements on many oc-
casions earned him the reputa-
tion of being a staunch friend of
Israel, was quoted as telling the
American journalists that Is-
raeli leaders were "unrealistic"
if they thought they could avoid
contact with the PLO.
"We cannot support Israel
right or wrong," he told the
group. If Israel was responsible
for a new war in the Middle
East, "it is not clear that
United States support would be
with them." he said.
HE SAID that Israel had
missed a chance to negotiate a
settlement with King Hussein of
Jordan and was making a mis-
take in refusing to deal with
Arafat. Percy indicated that Is-
rael would have to withdraw to
"essentially" the lines that ex-
isted before the 1967 Six-Day
He said there was no question
that the U.S. must do every-
thing possible to insure Israel's
independence, but warned that
"there are limits to the level of
support," particularly "to the
extent we'd go to support Israeli
occupation" of Arab lands.
the Jewish United Fund here
said, "It is difficult to under-
stand his (Percy's) characteri-
zation of Yasir Arafat as a so-
called 'moderate' in view of
Arafat's appearance at the
United Nations calling for the
destruction of a member state
of that body, namely, Israel,
with a holster at his hip."
The statement continued:
'For Sen. Percy to be taken in
by so-called moderate talk at a
time when Arab terrorists are
firing bazookas kt civilian air-
craft and throwing hand gre-
nades among innocent men,
women and children on an ob-
setvation deck of the Paris air-
port, is completely incompre-
A'."e wonder what has hap-
pened to Sen. Percy's sense of
perspective and even handed-
ness when he refers to Israel's
'intransigence' when none of the
other parties are asked to take
any steps toward normalizing re-
lationships leading to peace in
exchange for territory.
those who would destroy an ally
of the United States out of
guns' reach of the homes and
schools of a iieople who would
welcome true peace more than
an tiling in the world."
Meanwhile, Rep. Sidney Yates
(D., 111. i said that Sen. Percy
should "come down from the
cloud of propaganda which still
envelops him and look at the
hard facts." Yates is the dean of
the Jewish Congressional dele-
"I must say to the Senator,"
Yates said, "I am surprised thst
as a member of the Senate For-
eign Relations Committee he is
not more aware of the harsh,
realities and sensitive relation
ships in the Middle East."

? Ask Abe ?,
QUESTION: Wbere can we
find the quotation: Peace, peace,
when there is no peace?
(Name withheld upon request)
ANSWER: This quotation can
be found twice in the prophetic
book ot Jeremiah.
"They have healed also the
hurt of my people lightly, say-
ing: Peace, peace, when there is
no peace." (Jeremiah 6:14)
"And they have healed the
hurt of the daughter of my peo-
ple lightly saying: Peace, peace
when there is no peace." (Ibid
In the Soncino publication of
the Book of Jeremiah the follow-
ing commentary appears with
reference to the above quotation:
"healed. The subject is the
prophets and priests. Lightly.
Simply by assuring them that all
is well. Like faithless physicians
they dismissed their patient
without going to the trouble of
examining him properly; sooth-
ing him with the medicine of
pleasant soundinn phrn^es when
what was wanted was the deep-
cutting knife of a thorough-going
repentance." (Ibid Pane 46)
It is interesting to note that
the prophecy of Jeremiah extend-
ed from 624 B.C.S. (after the
destruction of the Temple and
the overthrow of the Judean
ed from 624 B.C.E. (after the
2500 years ago). How prophetic
this thought is for our present
One has only to consider what
happened in our own lifetime
from the beginning of the 20th
century; World War I, World
War II, the Holocaust, the crea-
tion of the State of Israel follow-
ed by constant warfare, the
Korean War, the Indo-China War,
etc. "Peace, peace when there is
no peace."

Oil Geologists are Sure
They've Found a Gusher
TEL AVIV-(JTA)-Oil geologists drilling in the Ramallh
region of the West Bank have indicated that they are about to
tap a reservoir of oil estimated to contain seven billion barrels,
100 times Israel's annual oil requirements.
The news touched off a slight rise in oil shares on the Tel
Av.v Stock Exchange. But investors with past experience of oil
finds that failed to materialize are acting with caution.
The director of the oil exploration and investment depart-
ment of the treasury said that plans are ready to develop the
Raraallah stte if positive results are achieved. He added however
that if would take more than a year to raise the necessary money
to start working the site.

Israeli Month Opens I
In Food Fair Here '
The Food Fair ctoain will have
an Israeli Month in 15 of their
supermarkets in the Miami area
starting this week.
The promotion sale will in-
clude a variety of fine imported
'Israeli quality products which
will be displayed in a special
Israeli section of these super-
hoshua Meshulach, of the Buy
Israel Organization, who worked
closely with the Food Fair man-
agement to organize the promo-
tion campaign, said that this is
the first food chain in the United
States to have an Israeli Month
in their supermarkets.
Yeheskel Kassif, commissioner
of the Government of Israel
Trade Center in' New York, was
instrumental in helping to make
the necessary contact between
the Food Fair organization and
the Israeli .importers in. New
York in order to supply the
merchandise for this campaign.
He also supplied the Food Fair
stores with Israeli colored posters
to decorate the stores.
SINCE THE Buy Israel cam-
paign started in Greater Miami
in October, 1973, after the Yom
Kippur War, sales of Israeli food
products have increased over 400
per cent, said Meshulach.
Israeli food products are now
available in more than 100 food
stores in the Miami area in com-
parison with some 25 stores one
i;ear ago.
"Shipments of Israeli products
for the coming Passover are on
their way directly from Israel to
the Miami port. This helps to re-
duce the cost of transportation
which makes it possible to re-
duce the prices of the products,"
Meshulach said.
The Buy Israeli office is or-
ganizing during this year at least
150 exhibits and tasting parties
of Israeli products, in compari/
son with 100 last year, with Jew-
ish organizations. Temple sister-
hoods, and condominiums in
order to stimulate the demand
for them.
"The Jewish Federation of Buf-
falo, NY, recently started a simi-
lar Buy Israel campaign follow-
ing the methods and procedures
of the Buy Israel office in Miami
Beach. Jewish communities in
other cities in Florida are plan-
ning to start Buy Israel cam-
paigns in their communities in
the very near future," Meshulach
"It's not too hard to drop a
box of cookies, candy, wine, toilet
articles and other such Made-in-
Isjael, products into your basket
as you shop," Meshulach added.
WITH OVER 200,000 Jews in
the South Florida area alone,
only $1 a week, or $50 a year,
spent by marketers on Made-in-
Israel food products, can gener-
ate some $10 million annually in
foreign exports from Israel.

PARIS (JTA) Egyptian
Presidnet Anwar Sadat arrived
here last week for a three-day
state visit, his first official call
on a west European country.
French and Egyptian circles
stress that the visit was not a
normal exchange between chiefs
of state but a major Egyptian
attempt to break loose from the
pressure exerted on it directly
by the Soviet Union and in-
directly by the United States.
FRENCH AND Egyptian cir-
cles stress that Sadat was seek-
ing in France political, economic
and military aid while tighten-
ing its ties with France and the
rest of Western Europe.
President Sadat had previous-
ly said that he would seek from
France "large quantities of
weapons" now denied to him by
the Soviet Union. Egyptian
spokesmen in Paris say that
Egypt would Hke to obtain "ev-
erything it needs in this field."
Preliminary contracts already
negotiated in Cairo and signed
here during the Egyptian presi-
dent's stay in Paris provided for
the purchase of Mirage planes

phisticated F-l), Crotale ground
to air missiles, SS ground-to-
ground anti-tank rockets, ra
dars, electronic equipment, heli-
copters and tanks.

French sources say they ex-

to leave for Egypt during the
next few years to reorganize
that country"s indusrial and eco-

POLITICALLY, Egypt expects
to obtain French and West Eu-
ropean backing at the United
Nations Security Council, where
two west European countries,
France and Britain, are perma-

FROM THERE, he was driven
to his official residence accom-
panied by two squadrons of
presidential guards on horseback
and with drawn swords. Drums

Why is it that the days of
the week do not have any
names in the Hebrew
After the State of Israel was
reestablished in 1948, there was
some consideration to establish
formal names for the days of the
week in Hebrew. This attempt
was discarded and, therefore, the
days of the week in Hebrew are
still referred to by numbers in-
stead of proper names. This
means, for example, Sunday is
referred to as the first day of the
week, Monday, the second, etc.
Some of the Jewish commen-
taries in the Bible consider this
practice as a partial fulfillment
of the Commandment in the
Bible (Exodus 20.8) which says
"remember the Sabbath. ." By
numbering the days in the week
and by referring to each of them
by the appropriate number, we
remember the Sabbath which is
the. focaj pqjnt of ftp numbers.
Thus, every day of the week is
referred to by its distance from
the Sabbath.
Why does the Bible make
it a special commandment to
honor one's parents?
This is one of the command-
ments which commentaries note
is arrived at by sheer logic.
However, the Torah made it a
special point to issue this com-
mandment for a number of rea-
In honoring one's parents, be-
sides being logical, one uses it
as a means of honoring God.
Whatever honor one would show
to God would be empty if one
would not honor his narents. It
is for this reason that God is
often referred to as our "Father."
Commentaries like Abrabranel
claim that the honor given one's
parents sets an example for one's
own children to follow. Honoring
one's parents is, therefore, a
means of teaching one's children
by example.
Others claim that honoring
one's parents is a means of ex-
pressing gratitude for that which
one has received from others.
In a way, the whole Jewish tra-
dition is based upon the concept
of gratitude. Our obedience to
God is based upon our indebted-
ness to Him to be expressed in
a measure of gratitude for the
many things we enjoy by His
grace. Likewise, honoring one's
parents is a measure of gratitude
for all our parents have done for

I said that more than history repeats it-
T; historians repeat each other's errors. How
more heinous must it be when a historian
s ad nauscum his own errors after being
ed of them.
he classic example of the perpetuation of
is Cecil Roth's "A History of the Mar-
" which has been republished four times
it first appeared in 1932.
P'lli: LATEST hard cover edition is by

In the same 424 pages.
The only new addition is an introduction by
[ Salomon. He writes that Chapter V of the

went goes along with some pseudo-revision-
eories of Salomon.
[e states that Roth once replied "Nothing"
s question, "What did the average 'Marranos'
of Judaism when they first arrived in a
such as Amsterdam?"
NY SKEPTICISM about the correctness of
swer is immaterial since Roth admitted to
1968 that his knowledge of the secret Jews
New World came from secondary or ter-
sonrces and that he was not in a position
aluate the sources. He did no original re-
n his monograph, "The World of the Seph
(1954), Roth wrote about Marranos,
History That Should
Be Forgotten Now
". perhaps the majority still preserved at
heart their allegiance to Judaism and even ob
served Jewish rites (such as the Sabbath, or the
Festivals, or procuring kosher meat whenever
they could)." It is tragic that Roth's book ia
too often cited by non-Jewi>h writers.
Yosef H. Yerushalmi, of Harvard, noted that
"a secret Judaism existed among New Christians
and that many were really crypto-Jews ."
He, as well as the leading Jewish scholars
who have worked in the archives in Spain and
the New World, disagree with those who, for
example, M. A. Cohen and Saraiva, doubt their
Judaism and even existence of the Marranos.
RABBI DR. Gerson Cohen's strictures and
opinions about Netanyahu's "The Marranos of
Spain" are shared by Yerushalmi, Beinart, Revah
and myself. Yerushalmi commented that Roth's
chapter on the religion of the Marranos "synthe-
sizes data from a space of more than 300 years.
To this, I must add that Roth also failed to
distinguish among the Marranos in various geo-
graphical areas. In a footnote on their religion
(printed elsewhere), Roth distinguishes between
Mexican Marranos and others. He admits in the
footnote that Mexican Marranos were more re-
ligious than those in Europe. This does not ap-
pear in "A History."
Roth wrote beautifully, and words poured
from his pen as from a never-ending stream. Too
bad that he didn't write less and more accurately.

JENNY KUBELSKY, or Jack Benny as we

Benny did not become a violinist, but an

violin. When Isaac Stern asked him to join him

Of Sporting
Events in Israel
'T'HE SPORTS fraternity here is disturbed no end over the "jump-
ing" of Victor Silberman, Israel's premier wrestler, to Canada
Silberman emigrated to the Holy Land from Russia two years ago
and because of his wrestling prowess was given every consideration
by the Hapoel Sports Association.
As a matter of fact, training quarters were established foi
him at the Wingate School of Physical Education and reputed'y
Silberman was paid a net income of 2.500-3.000 Israel Pounds
monthly. This is considered quite a stipend by the average Israeli
who probably earns half that amount each month.
RECENTLY SILBERMAN took the bronze medal in the world
wrestling tournament conducted in Turkey and was counted uoon
by the Israelis to produce the first Olympic medal for his country.
From what I can gather, Silberman beeame frustrated with
the fact that there was no opposition for him to train with at
Wingate. As a matter of fact, he was wrestling with a plastic
contraption which, naturally, could not give him any competition
other than to keep him in physical shape.
BASED ON his showing in Turkey, it was rather easy for
wrestling zealots from Canada to lure him away from his new
home. The sad part of the tale is that his departure has pot a
crimp into the overall thinking of the sports bodies here who now
feel that perhaps too much money, time and energy is expended
in keeping the local athletes primed.
Despite all its problems, Israel vigorously pursues a strong
athletic program and is most desirous of holding its own with
other nations in international competitions.
With Silberman gone, the few hopes for a possible 2or>d show-
ing on the part of the Israelis in the Montreal Olymoiada to be
held in 1976 rests with Esther Shachmarov-Roth, the splendid
female sprinter and hurdler, and David Brenner, the young swim-
mer who captured a gold medal in the Asian games held recently
in Iran.
THERE WAS a strong likelihood that both Shachmarov-Roth
and Brenner would train on the West Coast to receive the benefit
of more advanced techniques from American track and swimming
In all likelihood the track and field star will work in one of
the San Diego colleges while Brenner is slated to receive instruc-
tion from the UCLA swimming coach.
The trials and tribulations of Dave Newmark continue ta
haunt him as the former Columbia-Chicago Bulls hoopster has left
these parts. Newmark had a fair season with the Hapoel Tel Aviv
basketball team in the National League last year and was countd
oi very heavily this year by Hapoel to better itself this year in the
hoop's standing.
THIS HOPE was predicated on the return here of Barrj
Lebowitz who was permitted to play in Holland last year.
Lebowitz is back but Newmark. after agreeing to financial
arrangements, suddenly decided to leave for India. It seems that
Big Dave has come up with a new "meshugas." He lately has taken
up yoga and wants to study under the masters.
Can't you just picture this seven foot behemoth sitting cross
legged in deep meditation on the streets of Bombay and Calcutta!
THE MACCABEE Tel Aviv basketball team is given an excel-
lent chance of reaching the semi-finals of European cup play this
year now that Russia has begged off meeting the Israelis.
The Russians, tactfully, if such a word exists in the Moscow
lexicon, decided to withdraw from cup play due to the inferior
quality supposedly of all the teams concerned.
In withdrawing, the Russians cast no aspersions on the Israelis
but offered as excuses that the army cup team involved was hav-
ing financial problems, the basketball coaches prefer to concen-
trate on preparing its national team for the Montreal Olympics
and they felt that little could be gained against the weak cup
competition which would be available.

Home, but that such a Home should be founded in
THIS COULD also be interpreted as being a justi-
fication of the exclusion of Transjordan, with the in-
ference that what remained of Palestine would then
be Jewish.
It is true that he always had kind and encouraging
words for what the Jews were doing in Palestine, and
emphasized vital aspects of that development. In 1939,
he told the House of Commons of Jewish achievements
in promoting industry and making the desert bloom,
adding: "So far from being persecuted, the Arabs have
crowded into the country and multiplied till their pop
ulation has increased more than even all world Jewry

YET WHEN he served as wartime Prime Minister
he confirmed the hated White Paper of 1939 which
set a five year limit on Jewish immigration and al-
lowed for only 29,000 additional Jews to come into
the country.
He had forgotten that four years earlier he had
bitterly attacked the same White Paper in Parliament
in these words: "The provision in that document that
Jewish immigration can be stopped in five years time
by the decision of an Arab majoritywhat is that but
the destruction of the Balfour Declaration. What is that
but a breach of faith!"
