Protest Arab Boycott,
Bentsen Tells Leaders
Lloyd M. Bentsen (D., Tex.), who
last week announced his candi-
dacy for the Democratic nomina-
tion for the Presidency, has call-
ed upon the Administration to
"speak up now" in public protest
against the serious economic
threat, to Israel posed by the
Arab economic boycott.
In remarks prepared for de-
livery at the 67th annual award
dinner of B'nai Zion, the Amer-
ican Fraternal Zionist Organiza-
tion, Bentsen stated, "Never has
Israel been more threatened
politically, militarily and eco-
HE SAID there seem to be too
few in this country who realize
the dimensions of the economic
threat to Israel.
"But our own experience with
inflation, recession and the Arab
oil boycott should serve to em-
phasize the fact that an economic
threat can be as dangerous as a
military threat to a nation's nat-
ural security," Bentsen stated.
Ho said that of great concern
to him, in particular, "is the wid-
ening Arab economic boycott
against Israel I believe that it
is high time the United States
protested publicly and formally
what amounts to a state of eco-
nomic beiligerenee.
"No military or political settle-
ment will bring peace to the Mid-
dle East or insure Israel's sur-
vival unless there is also a ces-
sation of the economic warfare
being waged against Israel by the
Arab nations."
BENTSEN'S address was sched-
uled for delivery to an estimated
1,600 people at the New York
Hilton Hotel who eathered to pay
tribute to Herman Z. Quittman,
B'nai Zion's executive vice presi-
dent and national secretary who
was the recipient of the 1975
America-Israel Friendship Medal

Stephen J. Solarz (D., N.Y.), a
member of the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee who has just re-
turned from a visit to Syria, and
three other Mideast state*, said
here that the Jewish conr.nunity
in Syria ic living in "a state of
terror" and that Syrian Jewry is
"the most oppres-.-d Jewish com-
munity in the world."
Addressing a press conference
called by the American Jewish
Congress, Solan;, who met with
Syrian President Hafez el-Atsad.
declared that he brought up the
question of Syrian Jewry during
a two-hour discussion with Assad
and that he (Solarz) suggested .
that Assad permit a small num- '
ber of Jews to leave Fvria to
reunite with members of their
families in other countries.
ACCORDING to Solarz, Assad
replied negatively and said that I
no member of the Jewish commu
nity would be granted n*rmi*tion
to leave Syria, explaining that if
Syria permitted emigration of
Jews, Syria would not be in a
position to put :>ressure on th"
Soviet Union not to permit emi-
gration of Soviet Jews to Israel.
Solarz, who is the first Jewish
Congressman to m^et with Assad.
said that only after the Syrian
President personally intervenea.
was he allowed to tour the Jew
ish ghetto in Damascus and to at
tend service at Frange Synagogue
The Conerefman said tha*
throughout his visit to the Jew
ish ghetto, he was accompanied
by three Syrian government ot
ficials. He said ,'iat while he wa

Making Words Meaningful
This is all about boycotts the Arab boycott of
American business enterprises that have Jews on their
staffs, the Arab boycott of Jewish personnel in tl)e
American ajmed forces wiio are\ forbidden to-work on
Army Engineering proieqjfs in the Arajtcountries, ,$J#e
Arab boycott of Jewish banking institutions in America
and abroad that have been invited out of business deals
with the Arab nations on the basis that somehow these
deals help Israel.
President Ford, in Hollywood last week, described
these Arab practices as odious and unAmerican and
declared that as a nation we would not tolerate them.
Still, the State Department insists that quiet di-
plomacy, not confrontation, is the answer. At least this
is what Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Harold
Saunder told the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommit-
tee on Multinational Corporations.
The truth is that the Arab boycott has been dealt
with quietly all too long. It began with the Arab League
boycott of Israel and of enterprises doing business with
Israel almost from the beginning of Israel's existence.
In the beginning, the boycott was ineffective. To-
day, it hurts.
. & *
A Monolithic State Dep't.
Were we silent on the basis of principle or expedi-
ency? Are we now more angered by the principle be-
cause it works better than it did before?
Whatever the answers to these questions, the sud-
den shift in American Jewish emphasis to pursue the
Arab boycott for what amounts to the first time does
not match the State Department's position, which re-
mains monolithically unchanged.
In fact, the government is now admitting that even
its own agencies have given in to Arab demands.
As Sen. Frank Church (D., Idaho) has put it,
Americans must come to know that the Arabs are im-
posing a pattern of anti-Semitism "on our country."
What is worse, American agencies, acting "with our
money," are acquiescing.
President Ford's statement in Hollywood was ad-
mirable. Now let's see the administration do something
about it.
We are not defenders of Rabbi Meir Kahane, who
believes that violence is the partner of political change.
But it is interesting to note that Rabbi Kahane was
ordered on Feb. 26 to begin serving a one-year jail
term on Mar. 18 on conviction in federal court in New
York on charges of violating a 1971 probation.
Pending the Rabbi's appeal and a state probation
violation hearing on Mar. 13, we are merely observing
the letter-of-the-law principle as applied to him and to
a whole brace of Watergate offenders so many of whom
are already out of jail and on their way toward becom-
ing wealthy with books and lectures on how. they tried
to steal the government away from the American people.
The contrast does not make Rabbi Kahane's exag-
gerated politics any more acceptable to us. Still, the
letter-of-the-law principle seems battered, indeed.
Is safety from punishment merely a matter of the
magnitude of the crime and the prestige of the crimi-
nal? Is it true that the bigger they are, the softer they

HTHE ENGLISH poet, Stephen
Spender, understands the
existence,of Israel as a nation
and a* people* WtVer thW Just
about -any other. non-Jew of
h9m, I'm aware.
Today, many non-Jews are in-
creasingly enrolling themselves
into the silent but growing ranks
of anti-Semitism because Israel
represents a threat to their
western industrialized lives.
FOR THEM, if there were no
Israel, there would be no threat,
and so the latent sense of hostile.
anti-Semitic feeling they have
kept pent up for so long is now
beginning to emerge once again.
It was easy to be for Israel in
1950. Everyone was still so close
to the stink of Hitler, and being
for Israel helped to cleanse peo-
ple of their sense of guilt that,
in failing to stop him before he
engulfed the world in a second
global war. they had gone too
far in their bigotry.
Beside?, in 1950 what could the
Arabs do to them for their sup-
port of Israel anyway?
BUT IT is not so easy to be
for Israel toda>. particularly be-
cause the Arabs can do' a great
deal to them.
The difference, of course. Is
oil. And so, just as many non
Jews pretended and still pretend
that (foolishly) we went to war
against Hitler to save the Jews,
now they are pretending that
(foolishly) we must not risk yet
another global confrontation for
the very same reason.
The tragic thing is that it was
no good in 1939 to point out that
the Jews had nothing to do with
World War II.
PEOPLE WERE just as will-
ing to let Jews be kilted by the
millions at the hands of Hitler
as they had been willing to let
them be killed at the hands of
other tyrants in the generations,
centuries and millenia preceding
I say it is a tragic thing be-
cause the very same situation
exists today. As always in the
past. It is still no good to point
out that the Jews are not the
issuein this case, that the Is-
raelis are not the issue.
Were there no Israel, there
would still be the problem of the
Arabs, whose turn in their his-
tory has come a second time to
challenge western civilization for
ascendancy as once they did
when they slammed across the
Mediterranean and swept into
Europe to ensconce themselves
in Spain.
OIL IS the aopareni focus of
the confrontation today a? Czech-
oslovakia was the aoDarent focus
of the confrontation in the days
before World War II.
All we had to do WW give un
Czechoslovakia to Hitler, and
there would be no more talk
about war.
All we have to do is give up
Irael to the Arabs, and the flow
of oil will continue uninterrupted
and at a reasonable cost.
NOW IN each instance it is
true that Jews have been and are
tangentially involved, but they
were not, nor are they today the
main issue, however satisfied
many non-Jews may feel to say
A case in point, for example,
is the distinguished opinion mag-
gazine,"National Observer,'' whose
managing editor. John F. Bridge,
is now calling for "an end to
existence in a garrison state (Is-
rael) that can only become in-
creasingly regimented."
In Bridge's view, Israel is a
"futile cause.''
Bridge and other non Jews is
that Bridge regards his "solu-
tion" to the Mideast problem as
the beginning of a moral com-
"The Jews of Israel." he sav;.
"must be offered a home in

America and must be encouraged
in every way to settle here as
citizens," although he recognizes
the anti-Semitic possibilities in
such an eventuality "serious
dislocation" in the United States
Concedes Bridge: "Three mil-
lion embittered Israelis amid all
the other disaffected, disgrun-
tled, and embittered Americans
will be no small matter."
OTHER NON-JEWS would, ol
course, be delighted to. see tha
end of an existing Israel, but
would accept no commitment
moral or otherwise,' to the rate ol
rhe *STae1l9r they' are'Sft'hrHg'so
cavalierly to dismiss in the name
of an uninterrupted flow of oil.
Other non-Jews entertain them-
selves in their fancy that they
would celebrate with the Arabs
the ultimate destruction of an
alien Jewish presence that hai
disturbed Christian-Moslem tran-
quillity for some 1,500 years.
All of which brings me to my
original point about Stephen
Spender, the English poet.
IN THE latest issue of the
"New York Review" (Vol. XXIII,
No. 3), Spender, who went to
Israel for a few weeks at the be-
ginning of the year, agrees with
and quotes an Israeli on this
very question.

With the sentencing of the
four men convicted in the Wa-
tergate trial, we reach the end
of a political drama from which
the major actor has somehow
dropped out.
It is a case of a "Hamlet" per-
formance without Hamlet. As
historical chance would have it,
Richard Nixon was being given
a dinner party at the home of
Walter Annenberg, whom he had
appointed as ambassador to the
Court of St. James, on the same
day that John Mitchell. H.R.
Haideman, John Erlichman and
Rokert Mardian were sentenced
by Judge Sirica to relatively se-
vere jail terms.

fellows. With him. as with them,
it was every man for himself.
Looking hack at the whole
story, the nation's preoccupation
with Watergate never really
focused on the fate of the mem-
bers of the Palace Guard, but
on Richard Nixon himself.
It mounted as long as the
theme of the anguished national
debate was his guilt ami his Im-
peachment With his resignation
and President Ford's succession,
it would have mounted a';ain un-
til the question of Nixon's fate
in the criminal courts would be
THU?. THE turning point in
the national crime-and-punish-
ment story was not the Water-
gate trial but President Fords
pardon of Nixon. With the par-
don the storm broke, but in time
also the Watergate preoccupa-
tion broke. The rest was anti-

that thtre but for the gracT
of Mr. Ford stood Nixon.
W'hat clinched the conviction
of the four was the unanswer-
able tcst.'mony of the te'lta'e
tapes. It would have clinched
Nixon's conviction too. and their
sentences would, in all probabil-
ity, have ber-n his as well.
NIXON WAS all a'on? the
major figure in the Watergate
coverup enactment: he was the
major quarry in the tracking-
down detective drama, and he
would have been the major tar-
get of the trials and sentencing.
There seems to be a wide-
spread fee?ine that, despite the
sentences, the four will somehow
escaie punishment. I don't think
Certainly the appeals process
may stretch out during this year
and part of next, and conceiv-
ably Judge Sirica who has
been overruled at times in the
pastmight be overruled again.
BUT THE strong probability
is that these men, once so pow-
erfull, will in fact have to serve
out their minimum terms.
Three key figures among
them Mitchell. Haideman and
Ehrlichman have reacted to
their ordeal in characteristic
ways'. Stress and punishment
bring out the diverse elements
of character structure.
John Mitchell responded to his
sentence with a jocular cynicism,
noting that it was better lhan

? Ask Abe?
QUESTION: What is the mean-
ing of Hadassah?
Miami Beach
ANSWER: Hadassah based
on the Hebrew word Hadas
means "myrtle.'' It appears in
the Bible as an alternative name
for Esther.
"He (Mordecai) was foster
father to Hadassah, that is,
Esther, his uncle's daughter, for
she had neither father nor
mother." (Book of Esther 2:7)
Hadassah is best known as the
Women's Zionist Organization of
America, largest Zionist organi-
zation of the world and one of
the largest women's Zionist or-
ganizations in the United States.
It was founded in 1912 by
Henrietta Szold with a three-fold
object: (1) To raise the standard
of health in disease-ridden Pales-
tine; (2) To encourage the de-
velopment of Jewish life in
America; and (3) To foster tly
Jewish ideal.
According to its constitution.
it is "a voluntary, non-profit or-
ganization dedicated to the ideals
of Judaism, Zionism, American
democracy, healing, teaching,
and medical research.

Anti-Semitism Is Rampant
EDITOR, Floridian Shofar:
Several weeks ago my atten-
tion was drawn to the Letters to
the Editor page of a local daily
newspaper wherein a letter was
published chastising the rabbis
and temples of this community
and urging our local Federation
to open Hebrew Schools and pro-
vide these schools for members
of the community who "could
not afford the exorbitant fees
charged bv the temple."
I have no intention of arguing
the merits of the letter itself at
this time. I do. however, think
that it behooves a member of the
Jewish community to refrain from
causing any embarrassment to
the Jewish community through
the local public press.
The transgression becomes much
more serious when the culprit is
considered a leader of the Jew-
ish community and indeed sits
as a member of the Jewish Com-
munity Relation* Council. He is
an individual charged with bring-
ing good relations to the com-
munity, not washing the dirty
linen of the Jewish community
in the public press.
May I suggest that in the fu-
ture, members of the Jewish com
munity should follow the Tal-
mudic injunction "Sages be care-
ful with your words," and save
_' any condemnation of %i-religion-
is'i for the Jewish Floridian and
Shofar or for the proper Jewish
May I further suggest that any
members of the Jewish commu-
nity having criticisms of the rab-
bis or congregations are welcome
to contact me and I will see to it
that they are given the proper
forum to confront the rabbis, and
they may then present their
criticisms of programs.
As a word of warning, may I
Inform you that the Jews in west-
ern Broward County are finding
out that anti semitism is not dor-
mant; it is rampant and virulent.

Inside Judaica
Is the Christian Lord's
Prayer bused on Jewish
The Encyclopaedia Judaica
says the Prayer's Jewish origin
is evident. There is hardly a
phrase that is not an obvious
translation of the various for-
mulae of Jewish prayer current
at the time, to such an extent
that it can be regarded as a
mosaic of traditional Jewish
prayer formulae. The following
examples will suffice to confirm
1) "Our Father which art in
heaven" this name of God is
frequent in Jewish prayer and
occurs in the Mishnah (Yoma
2) "Hallowed be thy name:
thy kingdom come" is an almost
literal translation of the open-
ing words of the Kaddish which
are. in translation, "May Thy
name be magnified and hallowed
in the world which Thou has
created Thy kingdom come."
3) "Thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven" the open-
ing words of the Kedushah read:
"May we sanctify Thy name in
this world, as they sanctify It in
4) "Give us this day our daily
bread" the first paragraph of
Grace after Meals includes the
phrase "May He not fail to give
us bread ... for He sustaineth
us every day."
5) "And forgive us our tres-
passes" in the daily Amidah
the prayer is "Forgive us, our
Father, for we have sinned, par-
don us, our King, for we have
6) "And lead us not into
temptation" occurs almost ver-
batim in the preliminary pray-
ers at the beginning of the daily
7) "For thine is the kingdom,
the Power, and the Glory"
this phrase occurs time and
again in the liturgy and is based
on 1 Chronicles 29:11, which is
included in Jewish daily prayers,

It is believed that the quality
of such visits is being diluted be-
cause of the pressure of seeing
too many patients.

When you sit down to enjoy a crisp matzo,
it's nice to know that Breakstone won't
break up a good thing.
So this Passover, butter your matzo,
Cottage-cheese it, slather it with sour cream, or
make it more tempting with Temp-Tee

Then, go right on spreading Breakstone
throughout the year. (Not to mention mixing,
scooping and dipping.)

almost 40 families have already

Circumcision Rite
During the period from Purim to Passover, the Jewish Federation
involved in the most intense aspect of its Combined Campaign.
11 resources are being used to reach as many people as possible.
Sometimes the volunteers, chairmen, captains and workers get
| maged. as they feel that the people to whom they are talking
bout contributions just don't understand what it is all about. The
I ueers get frustrated and at times angry when a potential con-
i nr refuses to contribute or even to listen, and yet, in contrast,
aere are those who do not wait to be contacted and who contribute
lenerously according to their abilities, and sometimes we receive
ontributions from completely surprising sources. One such situation
A FEW WEEKS AGO the Jewish Federation of South Broward
eceivcd a very substantial bequest from the estate of an individual
> lived in a small town in F.orida. We had no knowledge of the
Ijividual or of the executor of the estate, and so a call was made
jet more information.
The results of the quest were fascinating.
The attorney, who is a Catholic, stated that his client had also
een Catholic. When hi3 client was making our her will sne had
kked him what charities she should include in her will. The attorney
Slated to her the following story:
During the Korean War he was taken quite ill and was rushed
Fort Meade Army Hospital in Maryland. He had just recently been
parried and he wanted to notify his wife that he was in the hospital
was improving. He wrote a letter and needed a 3 cent stamp to
^ail it, but no one had time to get one for him: everyone gave him
Brious excuses and put him off.
A young Candy Striper who was doing volunteer work at the
>spital heard of his predicament and brought him a whole sheet of
cent stamps; she questioned him about this wife, and called her
let her know that he was out of danger and improving. This young
krl was a member of a Jewish organization of volunteers who gave
Be;r time to help the servicemen. The attorney told his client that
would never forget what this young girl had done.
BECAUSE OF THIS INCIDENT, 22 years ago. a contribution
is been made to the Jewish Federation at the suggestion of this
Itorney. Isn't it wonderful that one small event in the life of a man
kn be implanted in his memory and can result in helping so many
I am sure there is a way to reach everyone, and yet it is elusive
times. We forget that the Jewish people have survived year after
^ar. century after century, because they have known that survival
epends upon themselves.
For those who forget that and for those who do not understand
jkkot. we extend to them our pity because their children and
^andchildren and the Jewish people generally will survive in spite
them. When they are asked what they have done, they will have
lower their heads in shame.
Now is the time when every Jew must walk straight and tall
ecause he knows he is helping others, and. As I See It, himself, too.

Hence. Micha (Michael) and

Abraham last week at the Os-

Additional Funds Urgently Needed
By American Red Magen David
The American Red Magen
David for Israel has issued an
urgent appeal for additional
funds for its blood bank program
the only nationwide blood serv-
ice in Israeland for emergency
rescue vehicles.
David Coleman. Florida state
president, and Samuel Reinhard,
state chairman, both of Miami
Beach, said the Red Magen David
has stepped up its activities in
Israel where it serves as the of-
ficial Red Cross and Civil De-
fense agency.
Coleman and Reinhard stressed
that the American Red Magen
David for Israel is the only
agency in the United States
authorized to solicit and accept
funds for the Magen David Adorn.
No funds are received from the
United Jewish Appeal, Israel
Emergency Fund or from local
Jewish federations because the
Magen David Adorn is an organi-
zation independent of the Jew-
ish Agency.
Such independence is one of
the conditions for admission into
the International Red Cross,
which Israel last month officially
requested. The use of the Red
Shield of David or Jewish star
has not been approved by the
International Red Cross as a sym-
bol although the Red Crescent is
authorized for Moslem nations
ard the Red Cross for countries
that are oredominantly or offi-
cially Christian.
Bloodmobiles, ambulances and
cardiac rescue units may be con-
tributed by individuals or organi-
zations through the Greater Mi-
ami ChaDter of tne American Red
Magen David. Howard Kaufman
is president, and headquarters
are maintained at the Greater

Poet Spender Sees No New Holocaust
Cratiaued from Page i-
The Arabs, he argues, "dream
of returning to the period ot
their past historic glory-"
Now let us assume, the assump-
tion here being mine, that the
Christians, who fought and lost
to Saladin in a stand-off at the
gates of Jerusalem, are willing
to concede another "technical"
defeat in the Holy Land (the
destruction of an Israel they leg-
islated into being) provided they
achieve another triumph on their
own home grounds in the west.
THEIR FIRST triumph was
the Moorish withdrawal from
Spain and southern Europe gen-
Their second would be what
Spender means by the allaying of
"the evident fear of the western
world of having its oil resources
cut off and having to reduce its
standard of living."
The trade-off in the western
Christian mind is obvious and
profitable: Israel sacrificed for
the continued flow of nil; Israel
sacrificed for ultimate Arab
hegemony throughout the Mid-
IN EACH case, the Christian
west sees good business. It
would be giving up what does
not belong to the Christian west
to give up anyway; it would be
receiving in return what the
Christian west believes belongs
to it on the basis of the pragmatic
principle of utility.
But. argues Spender, the Arabs
"don't hate the Israelis so much
because they are Jews as they
despise them because they are
not Moslems."
Declares Spender: "What they
(the Arabs) really want is for
others to admit the superiority of
the Moslem faith "
THE ARABS, he concludes,
"can tolerate Christians and Jews
{ provided they admit their
inferiority to Moslems."
So much, then, for the anti-
Semite who these days is increas-
ingly thrilled by the prospect of
trading Jews for oil. In his will-
ingness to trade away Jews,
Spender would have us under
stand, he must also be prepared
to trade away himself.
Moslem leaders in the Middle
East do not have a common cause
with western Christians in their
mutual hatred of Jews, as so many
western Christians would have
everyone believe. The Moslem
leaders' common cause is his
hatred of the west, Jew and
Christian, whom they regard as
alien forces in their midst and
who will ultimately be engulfed
in the desert sands as once were
the Crusaders themselves.
SPENDER TAKES his argument
one step further, and that is in
the area of Jewish-Christian-Mos-
lem religious feeling for the Holy
Christians, at least in modern
times, never seemed to have
strong feelings about "alien" oc-
cupation of Jerusalem until the
Jews occupied it.
Thereafter, like sanctimonious
tea kettles, they began to steam
over an "internationalized Holy
\ City" open to all faiths. (When
. under Jordan, it was barred to
^ the Jews, you never heard a peep
out of them.)
who know nothing of Jerusalem
: or Jews or Israel, but who rove
anyway in the gardens of jour-
nalistic expediency, delight in
sending back stories to their on-
f their-toes newspapers about the
; agony- of Jerusalem under Jewish
rule, when after all Jerusalem is
the City of Peace, as if the Jews
, know nothing about that, only
having named it that themselves
thousands of years ago.
But, argues Spender, who is
not one of this odious breed of
reporter, "Jerusalem was never
a capital under Islam. Nor was it
under Persian, Greek, Roman or
Ottoman rule. But it was a cap-
ital for the Jews ."
AND SO is it today. And that
is why the western world, prepar-
ing as it is to attempt a betrayal
of Israel, believes that Israelis,
supported by Jews everywhere,
are settling in for another Holo-
caust a perhaps heroic but never-
theless futile Masada in defense
of a lost Israeli cause.
Isn't this precisely what Bridge
said in his article in the "Na-
tional Observer"?
Nifc trua,.argues Spender The
mood in Israel, as he read3 it, is
nothing like that of a coming
Masada. If anything, the mood
is "of Samson pulling down the
pillars of the temple," should it
come to that.
Whatever happens, reports
Spender from Israel, "two things
remain constant: Israel exists,
and there will be no repetitions
of the Holocaust."
THE WEST will have to pay
for such a betrayal in the cur-
rency of more than Bridgr's
simple moral commitment ex-post
Should it come to that, for its
lack of convictions and the ab-
sence of its Christian principles,
the west will have to pay in the
currency of blood.
The sacrifice, Spender sug-
gests, will not be Israel's alone.

Is Arrested
chael Tzur, former manag-
ing director of the Israel
Corporation and former
chairman of the Zim Lines,
Israels national shipping
company, was placed under
arrest here in connection
with alleged violations of
foreign currency regula-
tions, disloyalty and suspect-
ed fraud.
The 52-year-old business
executive and former civil
servant was informed that
he was under arrest after he
was summoned to police
headquarters for further
questioning in connection
with the allegations against
THE ORDER to take Tzur into
custody was telephoned from
police headquarters in Jerusalem
where an investigation of his
activities is also under way.
According to Israeli law, police
may detain a suspect for 48 hours
after which he must be remanded
before a magistrate.
Tzur was forced to resign from
the Israel Corp. and the Zim
Lines last year after it was
charged that he had invested
large sums of money belonging
to those firms in enterprises
headed by his friend and business
associate, financier Tibor RoseB-
The temporary closure of Ros-
enbaum's International Credit
Bank in Geneva and the failure
of alleged "dummy" corporations

an international tax haven, spark-
ed a financial scandal here.
TZUR WAS accused of invest-
ing Israel Corp. money, ear-mark-
ed for Israel's capital develop-
ment, in Rosenbaum enterprises
without the knowledge or con-
sent of his superiors.
He is also alleged to have in-
vested large sums of money from
Zim and from the Haifa Refin-
eries Ltd. of which he was a
board member, in Rosenbaum'a
failed enterprises.

Trade and Economic Council.
AFTER THE Council's news conference had ended at the
Madison Hotel, the JTA reporter, Joseph Polakoff, went to the
dais to obtain additional comments.
Alkhimov and Polakoff. who bad met two years ago at the
conference arranged by the National Association of Manufac-
turers on the same subject, shook hands an.H Alkhimov responded
briefly to a Question and then moved to tht end of the dais to
speak with other reporters.
Polakoff started to join that group when Kendoll pushed him.
Polakoff protected the pushing and Kendall put his hands on
Polakoff's shoulders.
Polakoff demanded he remove his hands which Kendall did,
but he thrust himself against Polakoff in a confrontation and
demanded to know "how old are you?"
POLAKOFF responded age was of no consequence. Kendall,
who is about three inches taller, younger and heavier than Pola-
koff, then brushed Polakoff and interposd himself between the
JTA reporter and those talking with Alkhimov. Polakoff will be
67 years o!d in October.
Later at the State Department, Polakoff described the in-
cident and asked spokesman Robert Andeison whether the De
partment countenanced such action by a leader of a quasi-official
Noting he was not present. Anderson replied that if Pola-
koff's report was accurate, "this is not the type of thing that
should be done."

Question Box
STEPHEN M. \i{I.(>W1:
Why is a Jew forbidden to
have any leavening or leav-
ening products in his borne
during Passover week?
The Bible (Exodus 12:17) ex-
pressly forbids this.
Some commentaries indicate
that this represents the Exodus
from Egypt in the sense that the
Jews left in such a hurry they
could not wait for the dough in
their bread to be leavened.
Others claim that one might
be tempted to eat leavening or
leavened products if they were
to be found in the home. In addi-
tion, leavening has been consid-
ered symbolic of undesirable
Some say that it represents a
sense of pride and haughtiness
because it makes the dough rise
and inflates it to a larger size
than it really is. During Passover,
a Jew should be humble enough
to remember that his ancestors
were once slaves in Egypt.
Others say that the leavening
has a souring effect and. thus,
re nrwenta a a sense of antag-
onism and revenge. Jewish memo-
ries1 of the enslavement in Egypt
are not supposed to bring about
a feling of desire for revenge.
The Jew is supposed to be
ulkftil for tthe Almighty's in-
ention and should not seek to
less others because of His
n history of oppression. There
Mime who claim that leaven-
ing renresents stern iudgment
and a Jew understands that judg-

There are also those who claim
that the egg is eaten because it
indicates the coming of a new era,
jujst as the egg represents the
birth of a new life. There is a
tradition that the Messiah will
come during the Passover month,
bringing in the new, era. Thus, the
egg is placed on the plate in an-
ticipation of the new era.
Some claim also that the egg
represents the resistance of the
Jewish people to destruction. The
more an egg is boiled in water, the
harder it gets. Likewise, the more
the Jew is subjected to suffering,
the tougher he becomes.
Indeed, the onnrcssion of the
Jew which was intended to destroy
him, has, on the contrary, actually
strengthened his convictions and
tough-ned his endurance. Hence,
the egg is placed on the Seder

There are some rabbis who are urging the launch-
ing of a Jewish missionary movement, actively to bring
non-Jews into the faith.
ONE OF them is a distinguished rabbi who has
done much work for the American Jewish community.
He is Dr. Max Eichhorn, for many years on the staff
of the Jewish Welfare Board and now. In retirement, '
ministering to a congregation in Satellite Beach. Fla.
Dr. Eichhorn has just written a startling book
which I urge you to read It's called "Jewish Inter-
marriages: Fact and Fiction," and you can get it from
your own synagogue library.'
IN THE book. Rabbi Eichhorn has packed many of
his own ideas about the issue of intermarriage and also
an enormous amount of intriguing data which he ha3
accumulated over the course of several decades.
As Rabbi Bertram Korn writes in the preface of
this book, the volume gives us a chance to observe a
man "struggling for truth and human dignity."
You won't have to struggle to read the book; it'll
be a delight.
Jewish Study
TIME honored pnrase, "next year in Jerusalem." is a stir-
portion of the Passover Seder. It reminds us of Israels
Ity in Jewish life and its importance in the Jewish con-
was with this in mind that the American Association for
Education, in keeping with its philosophy to "contemporize"
school curricula, published an innovative series of class-
^exts which presented divergent views on major issues con-
li Israel.
fira NO little trepidation. There were fears that the 10-
tudy program, titled Viewpoint, might be a bit too daring
Jewish high school ?udience at which it was aimed.
bason: Its content touched on such thorny problems as siate-
Ni controversies, the "rights" of Palestinian refugees, and
er priorities should be set between immigrant absorption
Jising the standard of living of Israel's deprived peoples.
pOREOVER, the series has been employed in Jewish can ps
|u.t study groups, utilized in Catholic parochial schools and
Ight of its texts included in the New York City Board of
lion's Approved Textbook list for use in social studies courses
high schools,
fhich oniy means that Viewpoints is achieving what it set out
present a balanced selection of fact and commentary on
iporary issues facing Israel, rather than advocate categorical
ptisan approaches to various areas of study.
