Israeli Security Guard Stages
Shootout in S. Africa Consulate
What were originally call-
e d unidentified gunmen
seized the Israeli consulate
here and sprayed automatic
fire into the streets wound-
ing at least 32 persons, 12 of
them seriously.
They took at least four
hostages, three of them
women, inside the consulate
located on the sixth floor of
an office building. A girl
wearing a brown shirt and
speaking Hebrew called
through a window for a first
aid kit and later for a doc-
tor indicating casualties in-
side the consulate.
THE GUNMEN, at first fear-
ed to be terrorists of the Arab
and Japanese members of the
radical Red Army, turned out
to be David Protter, a former
Israeli security guard, who held
21 hostages for 16 hours.
The Israeli consul general,
Arieh Dustan, was not in the
building at the time but one of
the consuls, surnamed Hover,
was believed inside with his
young son.
'ine terroriits began shoot-
ing the streets at aoout
midday creating panic among
the multi racial lunchtime
crowds. As people scattered for
cover, others dropped wounded
by automatic fire.
Blood covered bodies were
seen lying in the streets. Police
tried to calm the hysterical
crowd as ambulances rushed to
the scene to pick up the
wounded. The emergency room
at Johannesburg General Hos-
pital was reported full with
new casualties still arriving.
A LATE report placed the
number of wounded at at least
40 and the number of hostages
at nine, including four white
women, three white men and
two black men.
According to the report, the
gunman made his demand in
Protter asXed for a flight to
Tel Aviv, and had threatened
to blow up tne building if his
wishes were not met.
This caused speculation, to-
gether with the demand being
made in Hebrew, that the at-
tack was by Arab terrorists.
In any case, the South
African government, and a
statement by Prime Minister
John Vorster refused to meet
Protter's demand.
It was shortly thereafter that

Hias Official Issues Statement
On Resettling Asian Refugees
Graynor Jacobson. executive
vice president of HIAS. has is-
sued the following statement:
"The State Department has
called upon United Hias Service
and other voluntarv agencies
engaged in the resettlement of
refugees to participate, without
regard to faith, in helping to
resettle Cambodian refugees.
"United Hias Service and oth-
er voluntary agencies of the
Catholic. Protestant. Lutheran
faiths and the non-sectarian
agency have been asked to ac-
cept responsibility for approxi-
mately 1.000 Cambodians. We
believe that the United States
Jewish community will want to
bear its share of this respon-
"In addition to the 1.000 Cam-
bodians still in Cambodia, there
are approximately 1,200 Cam-
bodians in other countries who
will also need the help of the
United States in their resettle-
ment. We stHl do^not know the
dimensions of this program, but
feel that we should alert you to
this oossibility.
"We understand that the
2,200 Cambodians are persons
who have the kind of back-
ground that will make them as-
similate easily, since they have
been working for the United
States government in one capa-
city or another.
"Like the Ugandan settlement
program, it is expected that the
United States government will
provide assistance in connection
with their reception and inte-
gration costs of approximately
$300 per capita to be made
available to the resettlement

ADL's Happy Statistics
The Anti-Defamation League has made an editorial
survey that shows that of those newspapers that took
sides in editorially commenting on the recent diplomatic
failure of Secretary of State Kissinger, twice as many
blamed Egypt as Israel.
This is an interesting finding especially since it
doesn't "sit" well with our own feelings during the crit-
ical days following Dr. Kissinger's return and report to
President Ford.
But our own feelings are admittedly no more than
hunches the testing of the air, so to speak, by sensors
long, experienced in the twists and turns of the. jour-
nalistic machine.
The ADL's data, on the other hand, is bard core.
It comes from careful tabulation and carefully compiled
statistics. In this sense, we are delighted by the ADL's
They show that even among the opinion-makers,
whose feelings these days toward Israel are less sym-
pathetic than they used to be, the message reads loud
and clear: Egypt was the one unwilling to compromise,
not Israel, as Dr. Kissinger and President Ford so ta-
citurnly reported on Dr. Kissinger's return.
Our Strength Within
May 8 marked the 30th anniversary of the liberation
of the Nazi extermination camps Dy the Allied forces.
Since that time, anti-Semitism, both at home and
abroad, has been a decided liability for whoever felt
impelled to practice it.
During those 30 years since the liberation, many
important advances occurred in the destiny of world
Jewry, not the least among them the establishment of
the State of Israel.
Now we are come upon harder times, particularly
because of the still-unresolved struggle between Israel
and the Arabs.
And, for the first time in those 30 years, we have
again begun to hear the kind of grumbling sounds one
can easily call anti-Semitism.
We are not willing for the moment to make pre-
dictions or even pronouncements about what ought or
ought not to be done to deal with the grumblings.
What we are willing to say is that, after 30 years,
perhaps the "honeymoon" is over. Somehow among non-
Jews, there is the feeling that enough expiation is
enough and that it ought not to be a liability fOr them
to be able to sound off on just how they feel about
"those Jews" when they take a mind to.
Surely, we are strong enough to say with pride
that we are Jews and not to care that some of the ter-
mites are chewing themselves out of the woodwork
once again.
Sen. McGovern Clarifies
On our front page several weeks ago, we published
a JTA news report that Sen. George McGovern, after a
meeting with Yasir Arafat in the Middle East, advocated
recognition of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Now, Sen. McGovern is denying the truth of that
"The fact that I met with Mr. Arafat did not convey
any authority or standing to him," McGovern is now
"Neither did my visit with Mr. Arafat signify ap-
proval or acceptance of either the policies or tactics
of the PLO."
What the Senator does not deny saying is that he

The Force Beyond the Military
S THE United States still the
leaier cf the free world?
This is a question that can not
be answered before it is ex-
plained, or at least qualified.
What do you mean by the
free world? Is that free world
you're talking about post-World
War II? Post-Korea? Post Viet-
IF NONE of these qualifica-
tions is established, and if we
are expected to respond to the
original question mainly glur.-
dularly, Id 02 obliged to say
no, we are not the Isader of

Mostly this is so bee:
there are too many memb:r-
nations of the free world that
don t want us to oe their spok-
esman any long jr.
And this is not necessarily
true only of those member-na-
tions that are not the best ex-
amples of the freedom that you
would think is prerequisite to
member-nationhood in the free

THEN PERHAPS we ought to
reword the question. Is the
United States the leading power
in the free world?
Again reminding myself that

i_0.. qU _,.. ; ;-,;. nv: Sti HI, I
1 dent really knew what it
;. Id be forced to repeat
my o.i*.nil answer: no.
Certainly, Japan exorcises as
muc'i clout, and so does West
Germany. And miserable crea-
ture that she is, France be-
lieves she outdoes us all.
AND WHAT about the Arabs?
Haven't th ay jnst about brought
everybody to their knees in the
last, year and a hah?
' WolL.thaj would be- true, ex-
mp t that jit own bigotry im-
^H^TOrTeSclude the Arabs
from free world member status
for all their revolutionary
movements. And by their own
proclamation, they would, of
course, exclude themselves.
Yes, Arab power is bourgeois
power in its rawest form, the
kind that brought greatness to
England and later to the United
States, the unconscionable ex-
ploitation of the status quo
through the unexcelled practice
of technological expertise join-
ed to the availability of raw ma-
BUT THE Arab bid will fail
for the same reason that the
Japanese bid failed at Pearl
Harbor, and at Pearl Harbor
the Japanese had no lack of
unexcelled technological exper-
The point is a teleological if
not a racial one. Even among
thos who have discovered and
experienced the ecstasy of the
use of bourgeois power, there
is a hierarchy, and the Arabs
are not. like the Japanese be
fore them, destined to h> in
eluded. w"
ADD TO this the practjeri
realities that the Arabs have
almost no technological capa
bilities at all and that their
revolutions are mere exe ciset
to see which ruling class win
control their newfound boar-
2 eois power, and the A: bs can
not even be said to em-.-;- into
the picture in the same way.
But, you will emphas: for
me, and I really und |
this from the very beginning
the question was Intenj.-d to
mean whether the United
States is the leading nary
power in the free world not
the leading power, 01 siftiply
the leader.
And here, too, I must .--. r
that the question has no

ed or at least qualified.
IS THE United States the

Well, I'm not even sure that
the Kussians are the leading
military power over there. Tol-
stoy in "War and Peace" and
the Soviets at Stalingrad both
impressed mo that given a
blinding snow storm, a ther-
mometer that shows tempera-
tures in which only polar bears
can live, and a pitched battle
for an inch of land belonging to
Mother Russia, then it is prob-
ably true that the Russians are
great defenders of their coun-

Shavuot (The Season of
the Giving of OurTorah)
commemorates that day, I
centuries ago, when
Mosesproclaimed theTen
Commandments to the
Children of Israel and all
mankind. It is the Ethic
upon which Western
Civilization is based. It
established the Faith,
character and destiny of
the Jews as a free people.
Shavuot asserts the
God-given principle that
man was made free.That he was endowed with
a unique personality to be fashioned and
developed in accordance with his own will and
power of selection.
It is this fundamental concept which provides
meaning and purpose to the Laws given on that
day in the Sinai Desert. It gives testament to the
principle that man-made laws, unless they are
rooted in a higher moral discipline, are no
guarantee of freedom. For without due concern
for trie legitimate -rpeeds and aspirations of its

I- :
individual members, a
healthy society cannot
be established.
Today, when individual
freedom is threatened in
Israel and is being abridged
in the Soviet Union, Syria
and other areas of the
world, it is fitting that on
Shavuot we, who value
our freedom, reaffirm our
resolve to stand together
to help our less fortunate
brothers and sisters
elsewhere realize their
destiny to be free.This is the significance of the
Faith of the Jewish people.This is our great
legacy to mankind.

? Ask Abe ?
QUESTION: Why do some
Jews cover their eyes while re-
citing the Shema during Syna-
gogue services?
word meaning Hear, is the first
word of the sentence. Shema
Yisroel Adonoi Elohenu, Adonoi
Echod Hear, O Israel: the
Lord our God, the Lord is One.
It is the centuries-old declara-
tion of Judaism's supreme af-
firmation of faith proclaiming
the absolute unity of God.
The Hebrew Echod, meaning
One, has been defined in Jew-
ish thought as also to mean
unique. God is not only one and
not many, but is the Supreme
Being and is different from any-
thing in the universe He has
The text is found in the Torah
and reads as follows: "Hear, O
Israel: The Lord our God, the
Lord is One. And Thou shalt
love the Lord, thy God. with all
thy heart, with all thy soul, and
with all thy might. And these
words, which I command thee
this day, shall be upon thy
heart. Thou shalt teach them
diligently unto thy children,
and shalt speak of them when
thou sittest Jn thy house, when
thou walkest by the way, when
thou liest down, and when thou
risest up. Thou shalt bind them
for a sign upon thy hand and
they shall be for frontlets be-
tween thine eyes. Thou shalt
write them upon the doorposts
of thy house and upon thy
gates" (Deut. 6:4-9)
During the Tahnudic period
there was much discussion as to
when the SHEMA should be re-
cited. As it has developed
through the centuries, the
SHEMA is recited twice daily
during the morning and evening
services, in the Synagogue dur-
ing taking of the Scroll from the
Ark on Sabbaths and festivals,
and during the KEDUSHAH
(sanctification) during the Mu-
saf (additional service) on Sab-
baths and festivals, and at the
conclusion of the service on the
Day of Atonement. The SHEMA
is also recited before retiring
for the night.
Portions of the SHEMA are
also included in the parchments
enclosed in the Mezuzah and
Tefilin (phylacteries).
"The SHEMA should be re-
cited with full concentration on
the meaning of the words: if,
however, it was recited without
concentration it is unnecessary
to repeat it, provided the first
verse was recited with concen-
"If the SHEMA is recited
while walking, it is necessary to
stand still for the recitation of
the first verse. It is customary
to place the right hand over the
eyes while reciting the first
verse as an aid to concentra-
tion, and for the same reason,
the first verse should be recited
in a loud voice.
"One should not wink or ges-
ticulate while reading the
SHEMA but should recite it in
fear and trembling. The SHEMA
should be recited sufficiently
loudly for it to by heard by the
ear, since it is said: 'Hear, 0
Israel.' The SHEMA can be
recited in any language but
with the same clarity of enun-
ciation one is expected to use
for the Hebrew." (Encyclopaed-
ia Judaica Vol. 14, p. 1372)
(Emphasis mine A.B.H.)
Some Jewish devotional man-
uals advise the worshipper af-
ter he has recited the first verse
of the SHEMA to have in mind
the following: "I believe with
perfect faith, pure and true, that
Thou art one and unique and
that Thou has created all
worlds, upper and lower, with-
out end, and Thou art in past,
present and future. I make Thee
King over each of my limbs that
it might keep and perform the
precepts of Thy holy Torah and
I make Thee King over my chil-
dren and children's children to
the end of time. I will, there-
fore, command my children and
grandchildren to accept the
yoke of Thy Kingdom, Divinity,
and Lordship upon themselves,
and I will command them to
command their children in turn,
up to the last generation to ac-
cept, all of them, the yoke of
Thy Kingdom, Divinity, and
Lordship." (ibid p. 1374)
The SHEMA is recited by or
in behalf of a dying Jew.
Throughout the centuries myri-
ad Jewish martyrs met their
deaths with the SHEMA on their
lips, staunchly professing this
summary of the creed of Juda-
One of the most moving
descriptions of the SHEMA re-
cited by martyrs in the gas
chamber of the Auschwitz con-
centration camp is found in
"The Last of the Just," by Andre
"When the layers of gas had
covered e%rerything, there was
silence in the dark sky of the
room for perhaps a minute,
broken only by shrill, racking
coughs and the gasps of those
too far gone in their agonies to
offer a devotion.
"And first a stream, then a
cascade, an irrepressible, ma-
jestic torrent, the poem that
through the smoke of fires and
above the funeral pyres of his-
tory the Jews (who for two
thousand years did not bear
arms and who never had either
missionary empires or colored
slaves) had traced in letters of
blood on the earth's hard crust
that old love poem unfurled
in the gas chamber, enveloped
it, vanquished its somber, abys-
mal snickering: 'SHEMA YIS-
Israel, the Lord is Our God, the
Lord is One.'"

^n By BOB KEftBEl, fxccufive Director,
Jewish federation of South Broward, /ne.
.... '!.:i. : :" :u
As this will be the last column that I will be writing for the
Jewish Floridian and Shofar, and since this column will appear
just before $havuoth (when tradition tells us the Torah was pre-
sented by God to Moses), the coincidence makes it fitting that I
present thoughts on the state of the community.
The Torah tells us that Moses led a group of unorganized
Jews from slavery into freedom. They had very little knowledge
of what they should do with that freedom. So there was forty years
of wandering in the desert while Moses tried to develop a sense
of community and peoplehood. During this period of time there
was dissension, unhappiness, and rebellion. There seemed to be
two steps backward for every three steps forward. There were
frustrations and disappointments, and yet there was movement
towards the goals set.
In the past three and a half years there have been accom-
plishments as well as frustrations in the continuing development
of the South Broward Jewish community. Some of these occurred
within the Federation itself and others within the total structure
oi the area.
We now have a Jewish Community Center program serving
South Broward. The success of this programcemnot- be measured
by numbers alone, yet every day the office is filled with senior
citizens and young children. Further, all one had to do was attend
the lsrael-27 program at Young Circle to see for himself the co-
ordination aspets of the Jewish Community Center.
During the Fall of 1974, a Chaplaincy service was inaugurated
as a pilot project to give rabbinical counseling services to our
Jewish people in hospitals, nursing homes, state institutions, pris-
on?, etc. The letters of thanks that come over our desk are an in-
dication of the success of this program.
.Jewish Family Service has increased its professional staff
from one-and-a-half to four-and-a-half case workers in this short
period of time. They now provide services as well to the Jews
of Greater Ft. Lauderdale with a branch office.
The Women's Leadership Institute was inaugurated. Not only
'were the programs highly successful, but the involvement of so
many young women in the campaign and Federation activities is
an indication of the growing awareness of the role of the woman
in a community. The Women's Division developed a most success-
ful Shalom Wagon to greet newcomers. Their "plus giving" in
Campaign surpassed $300,000 for 1975.
Our Community Relations Committee has been involved with
Soviet Jewry, the petitioning of our community, and national let-
ters for Jewish causes, and has meetings with standing-room only.
Within the Federation itself we now have representation on
the Council of Jewish Federations' Board of Directors, United
Jewish Appeal Executive Committee, Joint Distribution Committee,
and many other national groups. Our campaign in three-and-a-half
years has increased from S700.000 to over $2,250,000 and from
2800 individual contributions to 8500 (not including the Yom Kip-
pur War). Close to 1,000 different individuals are involved with
our campaign as volunteers.
Though there have been accomplishments, there are many
areas in which the community still needs to move ahead. These
include a closer working relationship with the Rabbis and reli-
gious institutions of our community; the upgrading of Jewish
education on a community-wide basis for adolescents and young
adults; the increased development of our campaign since our
potential is closer to $5,000,000 than it is to $3,000,000.
But most important is the need to have an increased sense
of belonging and the development of the community so that we
can truly say "WE ARE ONE."
We have shared the agonies of the Yom Kippur War. We are
sharing now the frustrations of no peace. We are sharing the
growing pains of a community in search of itself. May all the
problems come to successful resolution.
As I See It, by working together, by sharing, by caring, this
community can develop into one of the finest in America.

Dr. Samuel Z. Jaffe, spiritual
leader of the temple, submitted
his report underscoring the cen-
tral role of the synagogue in
Jewish life, and stressed that
the progress and success of a
congregation must be in quali-
tative terms and moral values.
"We have grown in numbers,"
he said, "but what is more sig-
nificant is that the temple has
grown in spiritual dimensions
as well, through its involvement
in so many sacred Jewish caus-
es on behalf of our people both
here and abroad."
Dr. Jaffe emphasized the im-
portance of the pulpit as a
teaching instrument, interpret-
ing the timeless truths of Juda-
ism for our times. He also men-
tioned the "many acts of loving
kindness, of true fellowship, and
of the strong bonds of mutual
affection and concern manifest-
ed among the members, which
enables the temple to maintain
the warmth of interpersonal re-
lationships and which trans-
forms a religious institution into
a congregational family."
Sydney D. Kronish, adminis-
trator, reported that the past
12 months have "seen a contin-
uous growth in the temple's
membership and its stature as
a predominant congregation in
the southeast region."

, Sea Air Bad For Arthritis;
Yosef Transferred To Tunis
Until recently there was lit-
tle need for institutional place-
ment of elderly Jews in Tuni-
sia. It was traditional in North
Africa for old people to live out
their lives with their families.
However, emigration has
changed all this. As the younger
people left, more and more el-
derly people remained behind
for one reason or another.
Many were very poor and
alone and needed a place to live
and someone to look after them,
and so the JDC, with United
Jewish Appeal funds, helped
the community to open homes
to care for them.
The newest of the JDC-sup-
ported institutions in Tunis is a
22-bed home on the edge of the
"hara," the old Jewish quarter.
It was formerly an ORT school,
and was renjfciled to serve as
a home for the aged. A grant
from the Central British Fund
helped defray the cost of the

27th Anniversary
The Sisterhood of Temple
Beth Shalom held its final
meeting of the season this week
in the temple's assembly hall
at 1400 N. 46th Ave.
The theme of the evening was
a tribute to and a celebration
of Israel's 27th anniversary.
Mrs. Edward Hoffman, out-
going Sisterhood president, and
Mrs. Robert Kerbel, program
vice president, recalled events
leading to the creation of the
State of Israel asd discussed
the part that American Jewry
must piajr in the present Mid-

companied an the piano .by-
Mrs. Dorothy Kowitt.
The meeting was attended by
Sisterhood members and guests.

Mrs. Sherman added that the
women had set their goal in the
early part of July and, after 32
parlor meetings, five luncheons
and a Phon-A-Thon, the goal
had been reached.
Karen Margulies, campaign
chairman said, "I feel just fan-
tastic all the women did an
excellent job. They excelled m

had been living in a home in a
resort town on the coast a few
mihs out of Tunis. Yosef was
one of more than 100 elderly
Jews living in four homes that
JDC has helped the Tunisian
Jewish community set up over
the nast eight years.
When the time came for Yo-
sef to move, the community so-
cial worker went out with the
JDC station wagon to bring him
to his new home. She found him
waiting at the door with a broad
smile on his face, surrounded
by his treasures hundreds of
family photographs and dozens
of old wooden shoe forms. Yo-
sef was a shoemaker in his
younger days and was still very
proud of his craft.
He insisted on putting every-
thing in the car himself. "I have
organized everything and I don't
want anything to get lost." he
tM the social worker. Some
things were so precious he in-
sisted on holding them in his
hands. So he sat in the front
seat loaded to his chin. Occa-
sionally he glanced behind him
to make sure everything was
still there.
It had been some time since
Yosef had ridden in a car and
he turned his head in all direc-
tions soaking in the onrushing
landscape. Yosef had grown up
in the "hara," and when they
finally reached the edge of his
old neighborhood his face was a
picture of bliss.
When they reached the home
Yosef ignored his arthritis and
insisted on carrying all his be-
longings into his new room by
himself. Finally, satisfied, he
checked the Iock on his door
several times and then went out
to join the other residents, at
peace with himself and the

Jeivish Companies
Play Big Role
In Aid to Soviets
PARIS (JTA) Jewish companies are playing
a major role in France's participation in the Soviet
Union's industrial development.
An accord signed last week on the 50th anniversary
of the Vneshtorgbank the Soviet bank of exterior
commerce was led by Lazard Freres of Paris. The
agreement was a $250 million loan by a group of West-
ern banks to Soviet industry.
The group of banks included the Banque Nationale
de Paris, the Morgan Guaranty Trust of New York, the
Royal Bank of Canada of Montreal, the Credit Suisse
and others, to a total of 45.
Visitors to the 1980 Moscow Olympics will have a
choice of four spanking new de luxe hotels, three in
Moscow and one in Leningrad, which will be built by the
Paris company, Finatec S.A. Finatec is a subsidiary
company of Lazard Freres.
As for the construction of 100 other hotels planned
by the Soviet government to be built by 1980, a Jewish
contractor by the name of Jean-Claude Aaron, will be
responsible for overall planning of the architecture and
Buenos Aires magazine article in
which the destruction of Judaism
was advocated and in which the
Catholic Church was attacked has
been scorned and repudiated by
the Egyptian and Argentinian
ambassadors implicated with it.
But. puzzling factors continue to
elude clarification.
The article, which has gather-
ed attention on four continents
and aroused especially wide
American and Israeli concern, ap-
peared in the March issue of the
extreme right-wing Argentinian
periodical "Marchar" (To March)
in which its editor. Patricio Kel-
ly, reported his interview with
Egyptian Ambassador Ashraf
The interview took place Jan.
13 in the Egyptian Embassy in
Washington after Kelly had been
introduced to Ghorbal by the Ar-
gentine ambassador here, Ale-
jandro Orfila.
ACCORDING TO the Marchar
article, Ghorbal referred to Juda-
ism as the "bridgehead" of "ex-
ploiting colonialism" which "must
The envoy also was said to
have dcscrihd as "irrevocable"
the Arab decision "to destroy
Judaism as has been promised by
our friends here in the United
States, Russia and also in your
country, as has been established
by Rcga Looez."
In addition, Marchar quoted
Ghorbal as saying that among the
"foes of the Arab struggle" the
Catholic church "is the most
dangerous of all."
Roga Lopez, considered the
"strong man" in Argentina, is the
Minister of Social Welfare since
last January and private secre-
tary to President Isabel Peron.
According to reliable reports
by those knowledgeable with the
Argentine scene, one of Lopez's
first acts was to oust his arch-
rival, former Minister of Econo-
my Jose Ber Gelbard. a Jew,
whom Argentinians had hailed as
their economic savior because of
his trade agreements with the
Soviet Union and the People's
Republic of China.
IN ATTEMPTING to learn the
origins of the article and the
motives for its publication, the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency com-
municated directly with Ghorbal,
Orfila, leading members of their
embassies and also consulted U.S.
officials and" other sources con-
cerned with Argentina and Mid-
dle Eastern affairs.
In addition to his personal con-
version with JTA, Ghorbal
wrote a letter to the JTA that
repudiated the article and avow-
ed no animus whatever toward
That the intfj-vjew actually
took place and that Orfila intro-
duced Kelly to Ghorbal has been
confirmed personally to JTA by
both ambassadors. But while Kel-
ly reported the interview lasted
90 minutes. Ghorbal said it was
only two minutes.
No copy of the Marchar edition
carrying the article is available
here but excerpts of the article
had been forwarded to newsmen
and others from Buenos Aires.
KELLY WAS reported to have
"gone underground" since the In-
cident became public and Argen-
tine authorities were described
as displeased with his article. He
was described by an Argentine
official as having spanned the po-
litical spectrum from extreme
left to extreme right. His publi-
cation also appears to have sud-
denly suspended operations.
To an inquirer about the "pain-
ful matter" of the magazine ar-
ticle, Ghorbas wrote:
"Mr. Kelly did not speak any
English, and I told him in a com-
bination of Spanish and Italian
in precise terminology 'that the
Egyptian people hold a great
friendship for the Argentine peo-
ple and that I was happy to visit
the beautiful city of Buenos
Aires in 1963.' He understood
what I said and he did not stay
with me more than two minutes.
"HE DID not ask any questions
nor did I volunteer any state-
ments except what I stated above.
Thus. I am bewildered how the
words I have spoken could be-
come the words that he publish-
ed. It is obvious, therefore, that
Mr. Kelly has relied on a fertile
imagination inventing a whole in-
terview which is totally contrary
to my views and philosophy and
those of my government."
In addition to providing JTA
with a copy of this letter. Ghor-
bal also made available to JTA
copies of his exchange of letters
with Orfi'.a.

Columnists Question JTA Story-
WASHINGTON (JTA) Syndicated columnists
Rowland Evans and Robert Novak cited the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency as one of the vehicles in "a worldwide
propaganda campaign to paint the Egyptian Ambassador to
the United States as publicly advocating 'extermination of
all traces of Judaism in the Middle East'."
The columnists referred to an alleged interview with
Ambassador Ashraf Ghorbal in the Argentinian extreme
right-wing publication "Marchar" which Ghorbal subse-
quently repudiated.
IN THEIR column appearing
in the Washington Post and other
newspapers, Evans and Novak
wrote: "On Apr. 1, the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency Bureau in
Buenos Aires transmitted a long
section of the alleged interview
which had been published weeks
beforeon its main trunk wire,
extending worldwide.
"That wire copy was immedi-
ately published in the specialized
Jewish press."
The columnists went on to note
that "The Jewish Week of Wash-
ington headlined its Apr. 3 story:
'Egypt's ambassador foresees ex-
termination of Judaism' and on
Apr. 11. the Jewish Press of
Brooklyn, ran a comm>ntarv .n

headline Extermination of the
to a further JTA dispatch from
Jerusalem quoting Likud Mk
Yeddidyah Beeri as urging the
Israeli foreign ministry to rp-
pnit and distrihut" millions of
copies of the alleged Ghorbal in-
terview to prove that the Arab-
Israeli conflict is not over terri-
tories but over the verv existence
of Israel and the Jewish people.
"That is a consistent and re-
curring theme of pro-Israel prop-
aganda," Evans and Novak wrote.
The columnists reported that
two Jewish leaders. Rabbi Henry
Seigman. vice president of the
Synagogue Council of America,
and Philip M. Klutznick, chair-
man of the board of the World
Jewish Congress, sent Ghorbal
copies of the Apr. 2 JTA Dailv
News bulletin headlined. "Ex-
termination of Judaism in Mid-
east is Point of Departure for
Arab Liberation."
The two leaders, in letters to
Ghorbal. expressed disbelief that
he had ever uttered such senti-
ments. Evans and Novak wrote.
bal is cruel and tragic, both to
responsible Jewish leaders end
to Ghorbal himself." Evans and 1
Novak said.
"Without any effort to check
the accuracy of the inflamma-
tory report in Marchar, a publi-
cation which the Argentine Am-'
bassador says is 'practically un-
known outside extreme national-
istic groups,' the understandable
emotions and fears of thousands
of Jews have been manipulated
in the rising crescendo of the
propaganda battle." the column-
ists said.

However, the fact that this is
the first official visit by an Is-
raeli foreign minister to the
French capital as a guest of the
French government was regard-
ed as significant in itself.
TWO PARIS newspapers, Le
Figaro and France Soir, publish-

in Kibbutz Ginnosar.
The newspaper Le Monde

The President told his inter-
viewersWalter Cronkite, Eric
Severaid and Bob Schieffer
that he would not make "any
commitment" on a meeting with
Rabin until "we are further
along in our reassessment" of
U.S. policy in the Middle East.
He said, "If we meet with one"
head of state, "we certainly
ought to give others an oppor-
tunity to have the same in-put."
Asked by Cronkite if that
meant "there won't be any fav-
ored nation treatment of Israel
in the future," the President re-
"I think we have to, in this
very division, where the possi-
bility of war is certainly a seri-
ous one, if you have a war,
you are inevitably going to have
an pil embargo I think we
have to be very cautious in our
process of reassessment."
"prior to the suspension of the
negotiations" between Egypt
and Israel conducted last month
by Secretary of State Henry A.
Kissinger, "our whole Middle
Eastern policy has been a very
successful one" but "following
the very' serious disappoint-
ment," in the last negotiations,
"we are committed, at least in
principle, to going to Geneva."
Ford added that three "op-
tions'' now exist. One is to re-
sume the "suspended negotia-
tions without making a commit-
ment to go to Geneva."
Another would be to "go to
Geneva and try to get an over-
all settlementwhich is a very
complicated matter. People ad-
vocate it, however. But," he
continued, "while you are going
through this negotiation for an
overall settlement, as a third
option, you might have an in-
terim negotiated settlement be-
tween two of the parties, such
as Israel and Egypt."
WHILE THE President said,
"We have not made any deci-
sion yet," it appeared to ob-
servers that the third option is
the one the U.S. still hopes to
achieve, prior to making firm
diplomatic, military or econom-
ic commitments to Israel.
Ford disclosed that he met
with Yale law professor Eugene
Rostow, who was Undersecre-
tary of State in the Johnson Ad-
ministration and is advocating
a Geneva approach.
He also disclosed that Under-
secretary of State for Political
Affairs Joseph J. Sisco is lead-
ing the Mideast reasessment
Ford gave no date for com-
pletion of the study, but it is
understood that it was to be
completed within four to six
weeks after the Kissinger talks
were suspended on Mar. 22.
OTHER POINTS brought out
in the interview were that the
President does not "foresee"
any reason for American mili-
tary intervention in the Middle
East and continues to "hope"
that no need will arise for
either the U.S. or the Soviet
Union to have "peace-keeping
responsibilities with their own
forces" in the Middle East.
The President said no date
had been set for reconvening
the Geneva conference and that
a date early this summer was
only speculation.
Ford said he makes his de-
cisions on foreign affairs on the
basis of option papers prepared
by the National Security Coun-
cil of which Kissinger is chair-
man. He praised Kissinger as

Jew in a high position are pre-
sented in Egypt just as they are
presented in the Soviet Union,
Poland and Czechoslovakia where
Jewry and Judaism are also en-
route to extinction.
The eminent author, Robert
St. John, in a series of reports
from Cairo written exclusively
for The Jewish News of Detroit
in the last three weeks, had this
to say about the Jewish condi-
tion in- general and synagogues
in particular:
State Egypt had approximately
100,000 Jews. (No two authori-
ties agree on the precise.figure.
Some say 80.000: others put it as
high as 150,000.)
Fifteen years ago, when I was
last there, although Egypt had
twice gone to war against the
Jewish State there were still a
great many Jews left and many
of the twenty Cairo synagogues
were still functioning.
"Today there are 200 Jews left
in Cairo and about the same num-
ber in Alexandria. (This figure
also is not orecise. for there are
some Egyptian Jews who for
years have not identified and
have gradually vanished into the
polyglot population, iust as had
happened in New York and other
large cities.)
"About the synagogues .
Travel brochures issued by the
Egyptian government list th?
Synagogue Ben Ezra in the area
called Old Cairo as one of the ten
or twenty most important sites
for tourists to visit. Surrounded
by twenty Coptic churches and 29
mosques and close beside the
great Coptic Museum, it is the
only one of Cairo's synagogues
now in presentable condition."
BUT, ST. JOHN continued, the
"real shock" came when he walk-
ed "down a narrow, twisty street,
extremely filthy, even for Cairo,
called Sha; i Mohassar al Knachab,
the Street of the Wood Cutters.
"This is the way into the heart
of what was once one of the most
congested Jewis>. quarters any-
where in the world. These shops,
these houses, this whole area was
100 per cent Jewish. Now all
trace of Jews and Judaism are
eone. The small shops are owned
by Egyptians now.
"There's not a Mogen David
anywhere until you come to the
ruins of the Maimonides Syna-
gogue. Ruins? The walls stand
but last Rosh Hashana the roof
caved in .
"A young Orthodox rabbi from
Boston says he is trying to per-
suade the Egyptian government
to do something to save build-
ings like this before it is too
late. The cultural attache of the
American Embassy says maybe
the Smithsonian Institution could
be interested. Someone speaks of
a demoralized community. It's
more than that. It is a cjmmunity
in the last stages of utter decay.

Two SeAomdl To 5-Year Exile
Teen Scene
Dentist Mark Nashpits and
metal worker Boris Tsitlionok
were sentenced to five years in
exile on March 31, 197S.
The two, awaiting permission
to emigrate for several years,
have been harassed continuous-
' ly and have been refused visas
on false pretexts.
' Tsitlionok. a simple worker,
' was denied papers for reasons
of "government secrets." His
father, however, who worked in
the same profession, left long
' ago for Israel.
Nashpits has been denied emi-
' gration because 19 years ago his
father did not return to the
USSR from a tourist trip.
Both Nashpits and Tsitlionok
took part in a 30-second Mos-
J cow demonstration under the
slogans "Visas to Israel Instead
''of Prison." The demonstration,
"held outside the Lenin Library,
' was immediately broken up by
the KGB and the two were ar-
' rested.
The article under which they
' were sentenced provides for
three possible punishments:
' three years in a labor camp,
one year imprisonment, and/or
' 100 rubles fine.
However, Article 43 of the
' USSR Criminal Code permits the
' Court under exceptional cir-
.cumstances to assign milder
1 .punishment than that provided
bv law. It seems that for the
Moscow Court five years in
! 'exile is "milder" than a 100
' irubel fine.
At the conclusion of the Court
' proceedings, Nashpits delivered
' the following statement (recon-
" structed by an observer):
"Citizen Judges, four days ago
' was my 27th birthday. This is
' the second time I have appeared
': in the dock, and both times it
was for one reason only: I am
' not allowed to leave for my his-
' toric homeland, for Israel.
"I started fighting for my
' right to leave in 1971. For four
' years I have appealed numerous
' times to the relevant institu-
tions of the Soviet Union and
met everywhere with closed
doors and blank walls.
"On December 11th, I was
visited by KGB officials who
' told" me that if I would keep
" quiet they would let me leave
' put that otherwise I would be
" imprisoned. And now this threat
' has been carried out, because I
' took part in the demonstration
near the Lenin Library.
l| "I am in the dock because
'I fcrou. Citizen Procurator, have
'j (accused me of wanting to go to
.' fny historic homeland, and have
' said ""that this was dishonest
towards the USSR. But could all
' the 100,000 Jews who in recent
tears have left the USSR have
been dishonest? They pursued,
' ' trr Israel. ----- -
' "Citizen Judges, you know that
fir people suffered most of all
World War II. When the
ate of Israel was established
" the Soviet Union welcomed its
' 'creation and Andrei Gromyko.
' 'who was then Minister of For-
' eign Affairs, stated that at last
' tfce Jews dispersed throughout
" tJe world would be able to live
' in a state of their own.
: "Citizen Judges. I .wOuld like
to aslr you to consider my case
' apd, instead of passing verdict,
' tell me why for so long I have
" not been able to leave in order
' to join my mother.
"Why was I not allowed to
' emigrate? My only guilt is my
' desire to go to Israet No mat-
' ter what, I shall not stop fight-
' ing for my emigration to my
historic homeland. I will con-
' tinue with the words of Moses:

The United Nations Human

its -annual session in Geneva,
Feb. 3-Mar. 7. Reports indicate
that the U.S. Representative to
the Commission, Phillip Hoff-
man, did not raise the issue of
Soviet Jewry, apparently under
Administration directives.
Addressing the Commission,
Israeli Ambassador Eytan Ronn
urged the USSR to stop its "un-
tenable policy of incessant
harassment" of Jewish citizens
and to ease new curbs against
Jewish emigration.
Ambassador Ronn said he was
appealing in a "distinctly hu-
manitarian matter, in which the
USSR could gain so much in the
eyes of the civilized world by
sacrificing so little."
General Secretary of the

and Peace, Homer Jack, added
his support. Jack's statement
was vehemently attacked by the
Russians, among others.

to seven years imprisonment,
Darashvili was later transferred
to the infamous Sichovka Men-
tal Hospital, where both political
prisoners and the criminally in-
sane are incarcerated. He is in
a ward 20 square meters large
with 17 other people, many in-
sane. No one is allowed even
leave the room.
Jan Krilsky, a Jewish prison-
er who was held in the same
ward after he applied to emi-
grate but was later released and
allowed to leave for Israel, said
that at one point Darashvili was
chained to his bed for 10 days
and was forcibly injected with
mind-changing drugs.
Darashvili's family has ap-
pealed to U.S. and Soviet lead-
ers, "Help us in our distress."

Okay, I'll tell you. During che
celebration of Israel's 27th
birthday that's when!
The exhibits, sales, food
stands and performances were
a magnificent tribute, especially
when banded together to form
"Yom Yisrael." the day set aside
for Broward County's formal
celebration of Israel's birthday.
This gigantic birthday party
was the joint effort of the Jew-
ish Community Centers of South
Florida, ALL the synagogues in

Federation of South Broward.
and the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Cantor Jacob Mendelson, of

always. The renditions of the
Temole Solel Youth Group, the
Youth Groups of Temple Sinai,
Temole Emanu-El and Temple

very professional, and the audi-
ence responded accordingly.

This reminds me of something
that struck me as ironic. The
Terror Wins in Lebanon Battle
spite the casualty figures (over
100 terrorist dead), last week's
strife in Beirut between the
Palestinian terrorists and the
Christian Phalangist Party mili-
tia is seen by seasoned observ-
ers here as a success for the
terrorists rather than a defeat
as would at first appear.
In four days of fighting, the
Palestinians showed once more
that they can take up arms
brazenly and publicly in the
heart of the capital without the
Lebanese army daring to chal-
lenge them.
THEY SHOWED, too, -that
vithout employing by. any means
all the forces available to them,
they cart- launch "swiff and ac-
curate attacks on selected tar-
gets such as the pharmacy
store of Phalangist leader Pierre?
Jumeil or the homes of his
Moreover, last week's vio-
lence showed that the Palestine
ian organisations can look to'
broad sections of the Moslenft
leadership in'Lebanon for synv
pathy and support, while, thj
Phalangists plainly found n)
hard to drum lip enthusiasm |
among other Christian parties.
The Baathists, the Commun-
ists and the Partie Populaire i
Syrienne were all among those
groups which publicly backed
the Palestinians. (The latter
grouping, a powerful ex-fascist
movement, aided the Phalan-
gist s back in the 1958 civil war
in Lebanon.)
THE BEST known Christian
carefully dissociated himself
from the Phalangist cause dur-
ing the fighting.'
At the same time, though, the
outbreak of fightingtriggered
leader in Lebanon, Raymond
Edde, head of the National Bloc,
by terrorist affront at a road-
block set up by the Phalan-
gists during a church service
showed that there still are forc-
es inside Lebanon which op-
pose the ongoing encroachment
of the Palestinians upon Leban-
ese sovereignty.
There was a long-standing
history of tension and hatred
between the Phalangists and
the Palestinians which preced-
ed last week's events, the ob-
servers have recalled.
THIS IS NOT to say, how-
ever, that the Phalangists op-
pose the Palestinian terrorists'
basic aims against Israel: mere-
ly that they oppose their ac-
tivities within Lebanon.
The events showed that at
present the forces inside Leba-
non seeking to curb the terror-
ists are not powerful enough to
inflict any really sustained dam-
age upon them.
The Phalangists' shooting up
buses or mortaring refugee
camps are not likely to bring
about a shift in the power bal-
ance or oust or even deter the
terrorists. Much more wide-
spread opposition to them in-
side Lebanon would be needed,
it seems, before this could come

The gloomy reaction to Ford's
statements here stemmed in
part from the fact that they
were made only a month after
the President was reportedly
angered at Israel for the failure
of Kissinger's mission. Some ob-
servers thought the President
displayed an even colder out-
look toward the Jewish State
than ever.

Maharam Of Lublin ..
Scholar And Halachist
Temple Zantora
Lublin is a city in Poland.
Annexed by Austria in 1795, it
was incorporated by Russia-
Poland in 181S. From 1939 to
1945 it came under the occupa-
tion of Nazi Germany.
This city has left a mark of
distinction as far as Judaism is
concerned, particularly to Jew-
ish scholars, due to an extra-
ordinary personality associated
with Lublin.
Meir Ben Gedaliah was known
as "Maharam" of Lublin; (1558-
16163. His acronym, MaHa-
RaM, stands for Moreinu Ha-
Rav Meir, "Our teacher the
Rabbi Meir." His principal
teacher was his father-in-law,
Isaac David ha-Kohen Shapiro,
head of the yeshivah and day-
yan of Kracow.
Meir's eminence in learning
was such that he became the
head of the yeshivah at Lublin
at the age o' 24, and before he
was 30, hf was appointed "day-
yan" and head of the yeshivah
at Kracow. He was Rabbi in
Lemberg from 1595 until 1613,
when he was appointed rabbi as
well as head of the yeshivah at
Lublin, where he died.
Meir of Lublin was one of the
greatest teachers of his genera-
tion. Wherever he settled, he
estaolished a yeshivah to
which numerous pupils flocked
from all parts of Poland and
beyond. From all over Europe
rabbis turned to him with ha-
lakhic questions, problems of
communal concern or for com-
mon advice. He encouraged
them by stressing his readiness
"to renly to anyone putting a
problem to me, fdr in this I
find pleasure."

lat<- printed in all editions of
the Talr/iHd. "t is a commentary
on mosl ">f 'he tractates of the
Talmu i mainly centos
around the .'Ttements of Rashi
and the "Tosafists."
In it, Meir displays profound
acumen, and although he treats
the remarks ol the Tosafists
with every respect as embody-
ing the truth and not to be con-
troverted, he was nevertheless
critical of them and amended
various passages which he
maintained had been wrongly
inserted by copyists. His com-
mentary, unlike the lengthy lec-
tures he gave to his pupils, is
distinguished by its brevity.
The other published work,
"Manhir Einei Hakhamin"
("Enlightening the Eyes of the
Wise,") throws light on the re-
ligious, economic .and political
life of the Jews of Poland and
of other countries. Although he
was influenced in his halakhic
decision by French, German,
and Polish scholars, he display-
ed independence and was crit-

tions of its words, since they
were not derived from a single
source, but were compiled

He said the late Rabbi Morris Adler, of Detroit, urged hinw
to enter the rabbinate while he was studying at Wayne Uni-
versity for a social work degree.
Rabbi Adler arranged for the young student to conduct serv-
ices in the small towns around Detroit and subsequently, he
reported, he "welcomed the opportunity in 1964 to join the circuit-
riding rabbi project."
He declared that he had also been a synagogue educator,
administrator and youth director in Ohio and New York before
accepting the circuit offer.
THE AUTOMOBILE appears to have an indispensable role
in the maintenance of Jewish life in Rabbi Kesner's dispersed
congregations, apart from his own use of a car. The eight Jewish
families who built a synagogue in Whiteville are joined in Jewish
programs by five familus living within a radius of 25 miles of
One of the major events is a once-a-month social gathering
for which the five families drive to Whiteville.
Temple Beth El in Lumberton has a membership of 27 families,
six from outlying areas. The synagogue is the pride of the Jewish
community, particularly after a social hall was added to "ac-
commodate the hustle and bustle" of Jewish life in the tiny
metropolis, he said.
THE TEMPLE Beth El sisterhood runs rummage sales and
businessmen's luncheons and children's parties on all of the holi-
days. Sisterhood members are responsible for a weekly Oneg
Shabbat. Temple members hold their own High Holy Day serv-
ices, as do the Myrtle Beach Jews.
Jews in the other small communities drive to whichever ser
ices are most convenient.
In Wallace, Rabbi Kesner holds services in the homes of
the ten Jewish families, since there is no synagogue. Wallace
Jews rent the American Legion Hall for their seders and Hadassah
and Israel programs, he reported.
WHEN ONE congregation has planned a special progranv
which would be beneficial for all of the Jewish children in the
circuit area, such as a children's model seder. Kabbi Kesner loads
up his car with as many children as it can safely hold and drives
them to the site of the model seder. Some parents also provide
car transportation to children for such events, he declared.
HE REPORTED that when a Bar or Bat Mitzvah takes
place, "almost the entire circuit rejoices together," and most of
the circuit Jews "turn out for a Bris and a Pidyan Haben and
weddings and confirmations and funerals and unveilings."
He said he was the sole teacher for all the Jewish children
from first grade to high school graduation age. He meets with each
child individually once a week. A couple of communities have

producing an off-beat allegory "Goldstein," a modern
variation of a Biblical theme by Martin Buber.

in the title role and Avery Schreiber and Jack Barns

"Goldstein" was a draw with Bertolucci's "Before the

"To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven;
...a time to be born...a time to plant
...a time to heal... a time to build up;

and a time to gather stones...
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love... and a time of peace!'

Ecclesiastes 2:22-3
