anti-Zionist Satmer Rebbe have approached Austrian au-
thorities for permission to contact Soviet Jewish immigrants

Rabbi Mordechai Kirschblum, associate director of the
Jewish Agency's Immigration Department who recently re-
turned from Vienna, told a meeting of the Jewish Agency
Executive that he had learned of the Satmer approaches
from Austrian Interior Minister Otto Roesch.
ACCORDING TO Kirschblum, headqaarters in the Williams-
the Satmer Hasidim complain-
ed that Jewish Agency officials
in Viena were aiding Soviet
Jews immigrating to Israel and
said they wanted the opportuni-
ty to help them go elsewhere.
Roesch told them that the
Austrian government would
continue its present arrange-
ment with the Jewish Agency,

Telephone Disconnections Protested
The following is taken from
L open letter of protest ad-
dressed to The International
Committee of Telephone Com-
"Restrictions on telephone
lommunications were imposed
1972 on the eve of President
iixon's visit to the USSR. At
[that time, the telephones of
nany Jews who had applied for
exit permits were disconnected.
The Authorities gave technical
(explanations, but the technical
faults were never remedied, and
further telephones were discon-
nected. Complaints and letters
lo the Ministry of Communica-
tions were ignored.
These acts have now been
nade legal by the following De-
Icree. No. 655 of August 31,
|1972. Article 74:
It is forbidden to use Inter-
im national, Inter-City and In-
tra-City Telephone connec-
tions for purposes contra-
dictory to the State's iri- '
terests and to the Public
Order. In the case of viola-
tions of these conditions by
Subscribers, the Communi-
cation Institutions have the
right to discontinue the use
of the telephone by the
Subscriber or to disconnect
the telephone altogether.
"Such a decree proves the
lexistence and authorizes the
use of wire-tapping to deter-
mine such 'illegal' users. Since
the decree, selective wire tap-
ping has become widespread,

A particularly large number
of people in 1974 were depriv-
ed of their telephones. The dis-
connections were made not only
on the basis of conversations
with people from overseas, but
even on the expectations of
overseas calls. In the last three
years, a total of 150 telephones
were disconnected, and in Mos-
cow only.
"Our attempts to use the tel-
ephone exchanges were also
blocked. The telephone serv-
ices had practically stopped
providing us with the possibility
to use International Telephone
Connections by referring to the
absence of the telephone subv
scriber or technical difficulties.
In cases when people from
overseas tried to call us, they
were simply not connected.
"In this way, at the time of
active steps towards relaxation
of tension, at the time of prepa-
rations for the Conference on
European Security, we find our-
selves isolated from our rela-
tives and friends overseas, from
all those who are interested in
our fates and who support our
efforts to realize our right of
"The telephone service has
played an important part in our
lives. Broadcasts of the 'Voice
of Israel' are jammed, our cor-
respondence is censored, our
peaceful protests end in ar-
rests, and the telephone is the
only means of finding out the
truth about our friends and the
only means of providing in-
formation about ourselves. W''
are made to understand that
telling people abroad about our
situation compromises State In-
"We hope that the Interna-
tional Committee of Telephone
Communications will support
our protest against the arbi-
trariness of the telephone serv-
ices of the USSR. We would like
to stress that your support
would be not only an act to
correct our grave injustice, but
an act of humanitarianism."

King Khaled's Turnabout
On its face, the King Khaled statement that Saudi
Arabia is prepared to "accept" the existence of Israel
is a stunner.
King Faisal, his brother who was assassinated last
March, would never have made such a statement.
"All" Khaled demands of Israel is that she withdraw
to her pre-1967 borders. Particularly for Saudi Arabia,
this seems "reasonable" enough.
The trouble is that Khaled is rather vague by what
he means when he uses the word "accept."
One thing, however, it does mean is that the
monarch is NOT prepared to open normal diplomatic
relations with Israel. Under these circumstances, we're
not quite sure what the Saudi Arabian turnabout can
contribute to peace in the long run.
A Brilliant Diplomatic Ploy
As we c-ptr.e in a Front Page story this week, Khaled
seems more realistic than Faisal ever did. But more
likely at issue is his fear of the growing strength of the
Soviet Union in the Middle East.
"Accepting" Israel on the eve of the Ford-Sadat
talks is a brilliant diplomatic ploy. It gives further im-
petus to President Ford, in his reassessment of U.S. for-
eign policy in the Middle East to give the palm to the
Arabs. -
It encourages Ford to apply more bargaining pres-
sure on Israel than ever.
So that what Khaled has done is to extend an olive
branch seemingly unlike Yasir Arafat's olive branch
used as a shroud for a gun.
The danger in all this is that President Ford and
Secretary of State Kissinger will interpret it as a big
But so long as the Saudis reject the notion of nor-
mal diplomatic relations, what can "acceptance" mean?
If fact, it was this very same deal offered by the Egyp-
tians that Israel rejected on Kissinger's last shuttle
train to peace.
A Vagary and an Abstraction
The resolution signed by 75 U.S. Senators demand-
ing that President Ford reaffirm this nation's ties to
Israel should, we hope, be reason enough for President
Ford at Salzburg not to take King Khaled's offer too
seriously and not to repeat the Ford-Kissinger as-
sertion that Israel is the culprit in refusing a "good
deal" in the Middle East.
Until the Arabs are willing to normalize relations
with Israel, "acceptance" of Israel is still a vagary and
an abstraction.
American Mizrachi Women
Today, American Mizrachi Women are organized
into more than 350 chapters in 37 states and the Dis-
trict of Columbia.
Composed of career and professional women, house-
wives and community leaders of all ages, Mizrachi main-
tains a network of schools, children's villages, commu-
nity centers, settlement houses and other child-care and
social welfare institutions in Israel.
On Sunday, May 25, South Florida chapters of the
organization joined Mizrachi across the nation in a
Youth Aliya rally as a prologue to Mizrachi Women's
50th jubilee year.
American Mizrachi Women is the authorized Youth
Aliya agency of Israel since 1934 and has helped to
rescue, rehabilitate and restore the youngest victims of
hardship, terror and persecution.
Mizrachi's latest efforts are directed toward the
children coming most recently from the Soviet Union.

U.S. Must Draw Harsh Lesson
Friday, June 6, 1975
Volume 5
27 SIVAN 5735
Number 12
Los Angeles Times Syndicate
For an America which suffer-
ed from a number of severe il-
lusions, all of which contributed
to the setback in Southeast
Asia, there are some harsh les-
sons to be drawn.
There was the illusion
that America is a map-keeper,
with the function of keeping the
world map stable. But world
maps change and will continue
to change. What was once Sai-
gon is now Ho Chi Minh City,
and is likely to stay that way for
a long time. When a map chang-
es, even in an important area,
it isn't the end of history.
There was the illusion
that history can somehow be
tricked by a show of arms, and
that if it doesn't work there is
always the hope of using a "po-
litical settlement." Conceivably
there might have been such a
settlement between the two
Vietnams if the United States
had not intervened with arms.
But once it did the political
route was shut off.
THE REASON is clear
enough. Because communism is
a historical world movement, it
has patience and continuity, and
can outwait the national democ-
racties, which must get quick
and visible results.
For the Communists the two
basic tactics- fignting and ne-
gotiatingare part of the same
continuing spectrum. Both are
temporary way stations on the
road to final power.
ONCE THE United States in-
tervened it became a matter of
high Communist policy to carry
the war on to a triumphant con-
clusion. The insistence of un-
conditional surrender at the
very end, after the brief spell
when it looked as if Hanoi might
accept a Dove regime under
Gen. "Big" Minh, was less a way
of humiliating the South Viet-
namese than of humiliating the
vaunted power of the United
There was the illusion
that a Communist Southeast
Asia would spell a victory for
either China or Russia. Actually
Cambodia's Khmer Rouge seems
totally in China's sphere, while
Vietnam seems to be moving
strongly toward Russia, with
some hope of becoming an
Asian power of its own.
The Russians blundered on
Cambodia, and the Chinese on
Vietnam. The Americans were
not alone in their blundering.
THIS IS scant consolation for
the Americans. But it is a good
lesson to learn that world com-
munism is still split between the
two giant Communist powers,
and that there may be a chance
for some mobility in the cracks
between the twomobility both
for the new regimes, for the
other Asian governments and
even for the United States.
There was the illusion,
especially on the part of Secre-
tary of State Henry Kissinger,
that a clever foreign policy
could either overcome or con-
ceal the blunders made earlier.
The blunders of getting into
the war were under Presidents
Dwight Eisenhower, John Ken-
nedy and Lyndon Johnson, and
were not of Kissinger's making.
But once they had been made
no diplomatic cleverness was
adequate to undo them.
IT IS a harsh lesson to learn.
But Kissinger's current view
that the United States must be
very careful about making aid
commitments and very deter-
mined about honoring them
when madeshows that he. too,
has learned one of the basic les-
sons of recent American his-

that Hanoi might hold its fin

BEYOND THE illusions

? Ask Abe ?
QUESTION: What are Zemi-
Elizabeth, N.J.
ANSWER: Zemirot is a He-
brew word meaning songs, the
plura! from the singular Zemer
(song). The Ashkenazi Yiddish
pronounciation is Z'mires.
Through its usage in the
Sephardic, Italian and Eastern
communities, this term is ap-
plied specifically to the biblical
verses, psalsm, and doxologies
recited before the main part of
the morning service.
Among the Askenazi Jews of
Eastern Europe, however, this
term refers to sacred songs or
hymns chanted at the table dur-
ing the Sabbath meal and at the
end of the Sabbath.
There are specific Zemirot as-
signed for the Friday evening
meal, for the Sabbath noon
mea'.. and for the end of the
Sabbath. Their recitation and
chanting was considered a mitz-
vah (a meritorious deed).
Although the origin of these
Zemirot is not certain, it is be-
lieved that many are of medi-
eval origin, from the early Mid-
dle Ages to the spread of the
Kabbalah (Jewish mysticism)
in *he 16th century.
The ancient Jewish mystics
added a touch of ecstasy to the
Sabbath meal by composing and
singing table hymns. Their
mystic strains were preserved
throughout the centuries.
Sometimes popular tunes
were set to the words of the
Psalms or the verses of medi-
eval poets. Other melodies re-
flect the country of their origin.
Some of these Zemirot are songs
summing up in light and jingl-
ing meter the very essence of
holy joyousness.
The content of these Zemirot
is equally varied. One sings
praises of the Sabbath, another
the adoration of God or the
Messianic hope for the redemp-
tion of Israel.
A personal note: In the small
thanksgiving to the splendor
and majesty of the Creator and
the Creation. Still another em-
phasizes the blissful rest that
permeates the Sabbath and the
gleasure we derive from God's
creation of the world and His
rest on this day.
A person note: In the small
"shtetl" (village) of the Ukraine
in the Soviet Union, where 1
was born and grew up, every
Friday evening in my home as
well as in every Jewish home,
even before I understood the
meaning oi import, I could hear
the chanting and singing of the
mystic strains of Zemirot. The
chanting and singing with love
and joy lasted far into the night.
As I grew older I began to
realize that strict as the re-
ligious observance of the Sab-
bath has been, it was never a
day of gloom. The Sabbath was
a day of rest, of prayer and
study, of visits to friends and
neighbors. Primarily it was a
day of relaxation and enjoy-
ment The singing and chanting
of the Zemirot was one of the
manifestations of such enjoy-

These pleasant, joyous, heart-
warming sounds were also man-

spiritual Jewish life amidst
constant struggle for physical
survival. These sounds made an
indelible impression on
mind and conscience.

What does '-Aliyah" mean?
Aliyah, the Hebrew word for
"ascent" means (1) the coming
of Jews to the Land of Israel
as "olim" for permanent resi-
dence; (2) the Jews coming
from a particular country or
region, or during a particular
period, for this purpose, e.g.,
the Polish aliyah, the First
According to the authorita-
tive Encyclopaedia Judaica,
However, Aliyah means more
than immigration: it is a major
ideal of Zionism and the pri-
mary means for its realization.
It implies personal participation
in the rebuilding of the Jew-
ish homeland and the elevation
of the individual to a higher
plane of self-fulfillment as a
member of the renascent na-
tion. In the earlier years the
majority of the olim were
inspired by idealistic motives
and even during the period of
mass aliyah, when the main
driving force was persecution
and distress, many were moti-
vated by messianic yearnings
and there was always a leaven-
ing of idealists.
Aliyah has been an almost
uninterrupted process ever
since the crushing of Jewish
resistance by the Romans, but,
says the Encyclopaedia Judaica,
the term has been used parti-
cularly in connection with the
modern Jewish return to the
Land of Israel. Five major
waves have been distinguished
during the period of Zionist re-
The First Aliyah. 1882-1903,
consisted of individuals and
small groups. Some 25,000
mostly from East Europe
came in during the period.
The Second Aliyah. 1904-14,
consisted mainly of pioneers
from East Europe. The influx,
which totaled about 40,000 was
interrupted by the outbreak of
World War I.

voted to re-examine its relationship to the Synagogue Council of
America and possibly withdraw from it.
To help understand the implication of this we should know
something about the nature of these organizations. The Synagogue
Council of America is considered the religious umbrella of the
American Jewish community comprising the national rabbinical
and lav organizations of the orthodox, conservative and reform
movements. The UOJCA is the lay orthodox organization, the rab-
binical body being the Rabbinical Council of America. The con-
servative lay group is the United Synagogue of America and the
rabbinical group is the Rabbinical Assembly. The reform lay group
is the Union of American Hebrew Congregations and the rabbinical
group is the Central Conference of American Rabbis.
The cause of the re-examination was primarily due to the
conflicts in Israel between the orthodox and the non-orthodox con-
cerning the personal status of the individual; such as, who is a
Jew, who shall have the right to perform conversions and other
such matters.
In. addition, there has been and continues to be a philosophical
controversy within the orthodox community as to whether or not
to belong to organizations in which conservative and reform be-
long. Those who are against belonging feel that by belonging they
give endorsement to the validity of these groups, thereby showing
that conservative and reform Judaism are acceptable alternatives
to orthodox Judaism.
I am extremely pleased that the UOJCA at its last national
convention voted to remain in the Synagogue Council of America.
For I believe that there has never been a time in Jewish history
when the Jewish community needed "achadut"unitymore than
it does at the present time.
With the critical threat to Israel's survival, with the threat of
extinction of 3,000,000 Jews in the Soviet Union, and with the
vulnerability of American Jewry, the best insurance for over-
coming these problems is the strength that we draw from each
other. One need not compromise his beliefs and values by joining
with others of like minds to work on the. manifold areas of com-
mon concern. We have our concern for Israel, our concern for the
fostering of a positive Jewish identity among our youth, our con-
cern for the strengthening of our local Jewish community, our
concern for the promotion of the synagogue as a central oasis for
learning and commitment.
It is only through the strength which each Jew gives to and
gets from every other Jew that we will see a dynamic and vibrant
Jewish community here and abroad that will perpetuate with pride
oar great Jewish heritage.
which started immediately after
the War, contained many young
pioneers (halutzim). Over 35,000
arrived during this period.
The Fourth Aliyah, 1924-28,
which totaled some 67,000, con-
tained many middle-class olim,
over half of them from Poland.
Some four-fifths settled in the
main cities.
The Fifth Aliyah, 1929-39,
brought in over 250.000 Jews
and transformed the character
of the yishuv. A prominent part
was played by refugees from
Nazi Germany.
Aliyah continued during and
after World War II, totaling
about 100.000 in 1940-48. Un-
der British rule (1918-48) aliyah
was regulated by the Govern-
ment of Palestine. The official
criterion for the numbers ad-
mitted was, in normal periods,
the country's "economic absorp-
tive capacity," on which the
British authorities and the Jew-
ish leaders did not agree, but
in periods of crisis aliyah was
often halted or severely re-
stricted on political grounds.
Between 1934 and 1948, some
115,000 olim were brought into
the country in defiance of Brit-
ish restrictions. While another
51,500 were interned by the au-
thorities in Cyprus and ad-
mitted only after the achieve-
ment of independence. This in-
flux was described by the Brit-
ish as "illegal" immigration and
by the Jews as Aliyah Bet or
hapalah, the Judaica relates.
Independent Israel imme-
diately removed all restrictions
on aliyah and enacted the Law
of Return (1950), which guaran-
teed every Jew the right to
oome in as an oleh and to be-
come a citizen immediately on
The mass aliyah that follow-
ed the establishment of the
State assumed the character of
kibbutz galuyyot ("the ingath-
ering of the exiles"), almost en-
tire Jewish communities, such
as those of Bulgaria, Yemen,
and Iraq, being transferred to
Israel. Mass aliyah mainly
from eastern and central Eu-
rope, North Africa, and the
Middle Eastbrought in over
a million and a quarter in Is-
rael's first two decades, the in-
flux rising to its greatest
heights in 1948 51 684,000),
1955-57 (161,000) and 1961-64
(220,000). After the Six-Day
War of 1967 there was a con-
siderable increase in "volun-
tary" aliyah from Western Eu-.
rope and the Americas, con-
cludes the Judaica.

Theodor Herzl: A Man
Who Dared To Dream
Temple Israel of Greater Miami
Theodor Herzl is venerated
by Jews the world over as the
father of modern Jewish nation-
hood. Each year thousands of
visitors to Israel climb up to
Mt. Herzl and stand by Herzl's
tomb, from which can be seen
all that several generations of
Israelis have accomplished in
that land for which Herzl
dedicated the best years of his
Amos Elon, the brilliant Is-
raeli journalist and author, re-
cently wrote a biography of this
modern Jewish hero.
How strange it is that we
should honor Herzl so. By tem-
perament he was an aristocrat,
but yet he became a populist
rnuser of the masses.
By conviction he was a con-
servative, yet he initiated the
greatest Jewish heresy of the
19th century. He was con-
temptuous of democracy, yet he
consfucted a Jewish parlia-
He was a profoundly pesimis-
tic man, yet he helped to mold
Eastern European Israeli pio-
neers into a movement of in-
curable optimists, fired by a
messianic dream of a new world.
Herzl was all of these things.
And, he was more. Elon, per-
haps for the first time, gives us
a glimpse of a sick and troubled
man who had a dream. His weak-
nesses make his achievements
that much greater. Almost sin-
glehandedly he built and sus-
tained a movement which, with-
in half a century, through a
modern migration of outcasts
and idealists, led to the estab-
lishment of the modern state of
Herzl did not invent Zionism.
Others had done that before
him. What he did, however, was
to forge the instruments that
would put Zionism into practice,
for, as Herzl said, politics is the
development of power. From
nothing he created first an illu-
sion of that power, and then the
power itself later made it pos-
sible for the return of the Jews
to Palestine.
To understand Herzl one must
understand the age in which he
lived. It not easy today to con-
vey a correct impression of what
it really meant to be a Jew in
the 19th century.
In our own days the Nazi
holocaust has driven most Jews
to a kind of militant self-asser-
tion. In the late 1880's the op-
posite was true.
In Germany and Austria bare-
ly two decades had passed since
the Jewish emancipation. Hav-
ing just emerged from the se-
clusion of the ghetto, many
emancipated Jews were ex-
tremely self-conscious and un-
easy, like prisoners who had
suddenly emerged into broad
daylight after years in a dun-
Gentiles displayed an almost
pornographic curiosity a_bout
the most intimate details of Jew-
ish life. Everywhere in the West
in the 1880's there was suddenly
talk of a Jewish "problem." It
was invented by those who
opposed the emancipation of
Jews on "moral" and "racial"
The assimilated Jew like Herzl
was psychologically troubled be-
cause, having lost his Jewish
links, he was still denied the
equality he felt he deserved.
Jews were baffled and shocked
by the obsession with the "Jew-
ish problem." Should they react
to the attacks or ignore them?
Was it something they had
done? Herzl himself wrote that
if he were not such a coward
he would have converted to
For Herzl, the infamous Drey-
fus trial became the needed
"last straw." At first like most,
Herzl thoug'n Drvfua guilty.
As he wt^h'd th- s rowing
demonstration0 H-'tod against
Dreyfrs. h= c,id '."nly sensed
that the wV*h of Western
Europe was b;ing seized by a
wa're of anti-Semitism. He final-
ly made up his mind to lead a
world-wide action on behalf of
the Jews.
Herzl's ultimate achievements
were amazing, considering the
man. Suffering from heart dis-
ease and venereal disease,
plagued by an impossible mar-
riage and an unnatural devotion
to his Darents, Herzl was indeed
a tragic figure.
Bif Herzl had the audacity to
become a statesman without a
country and without a people.
He walked a tightrope between
charlatanism and genius. In his
negotiations with kings, emper-
ors, and ministers of state he
took great risks: he had to con-
jure up an entire world of make
believe in place of the real
power he lacked.
As we read of the life of this
troubled genius we realize that
Herzl epitomized nearly all the
ideal and dubious qualities often
attributed to the modern Jew:
imagination, showmanship, van-
ity, irritability, relentless drive,
Utopian yearnings for the just
society, alienation, snobbery,
pride in Judaism, and Jewish
He was all of these things.
And he was more. He was a
man who dared to dream and
who had the courage to work
rX t^ fulfillment of his djearas.

The Garden is lush. It is filled
with dogwood, chestnut, maple,

that are pink and white and
orange and yellow and, in fact,

also lived and worked in these

miles but in emotion and spirit,
light years away. In the cold
grey weather and light of
Lloyd Harbour's wooded walks,
Miami's sun-scorched concrete
and pathetic dots of burned
grass lawns struggling to sur-
vive in the heat of a human hell
made more hellish by human
greed seems a nightmare to tell
me that though this Eden, un-
like my past Edens, is real, and
I am happily no longer a strang-
er to it, still I must leave it,
and very soon now.
But it is I who do the leav-
ing. I am not evicted from it.

But there was apparent con-

that the Defense Secretary's

and Egyptian President Anwar

The Bible And
| WE CAN'T pick up a newspaper these days without seeing big
headlines about unemployment. Turn on television and it's
| the same.
What about our forefathers of Biblical days?
WHEN MOSES began his agitation for the liberation of his
I brethren from Egyptian slavery, the Bible tells us, not all of the
[Israelites were enthusiastic. Some of them seemed to resent
[Moses. Some maybe said, "Well, being a slave is no good, but
lafter all it's a job. Let's face it. The only trade we Israelites
[really know is brick making and the price of straw is so high
|no\v. many of the brick factories are closing down.
"The bottom has all but dropped out of the construction
business. About the only thing we can do with bricks now is to
|throw them at one another, so we better stick here and slave
|aay making bricks for those Pyramids."
BUT MOSES prevailed. He led the 600.000 Jews into a
I desert. Few people seem to be aware of it but the Hebrew word
[Zion means desert and the desert was the saving of the'lsraeKtes.
I Some Israelites growled. '
"We are s"pnosedI to Hye here |p.r{*v years. How are,?e '
[goine t build home? How are we going to buy the land: what
[collateral are we going to offer the banks for mortgages? The
[land owners seeing us coming are going to immediately raise
[the price of the land and before we know it, we will be wishing
|we were slaves in Egypt again."
Moses had a good laugh. Then he said, "The desert is a
Iwonderful place. You have no rent to pay. Nobody buys and sells
[lots in the desert. Just go out and gather a few palm branches
[from the nearest oasis and build yourself a 'sukkah.' so vou have
|a rent free hom and you have your cattle and there is manna
around and wells you can dig"
IN THE desert all men are eotial. Perhaps it was this ex-
Brince of fotv years of Israel in the infancv of its history
||n th dese-1 that gav the Jew the stamp of democracy which
ras never to entirely leave him.
The w*re no complaints about unemployment in the Sinai
)esrt. On the contrarv. in the Ten Commandments proclaimed
i the desert, the emnhasis is on the reverse. The Israelites were
yarned not agTinst iobWsness but working too much. Some Is-
"lits must have been doing some moonlighting. Moses wanted
|iem to be sure to rest at least one day a week.
W*in the Ise':ts entered the Promised Land. Moses de-
ed "the land shall not he sold forever." The land was to be
Lared b" ail and every fifty years the year of Jubilee, it was
I be redistributed.
IT IS interestine that in America, manv centuries later, an
nertam, Henrv G^-org-. founded a school of economics which
V.dt that the Mosaic plan is the remedv for the economic ills
pc-ietv. George didn't propose to distribute the land itself,
whit, he thought, amounted to the same thin land value for societv. That would be the single tax.
I All other fves would be abolished. Land value constantly
fs with the increase of progress and population, so societv
lild always have an increasing source of revenue for schools,
|c. transportation. At the same time, since no one could then
bv anv speculation in land, no one would hold on to idle
I. so land would be cheaper. This would stimulate building,
1 reduce rents.
I THE SAVINGS in rents would enable people to buv other
b. A chain reaction would be started affecting all industry
[if anyone wanted to go farming, it would be made easier.
fr\ 1879. in a period of depression, George delivered a lec-
-fore the YMHA of San Francisco in which he argued that
Is had shown the way to create jobs.
fMoses saw," said George, "that to permit in land the same
plified private ownership that attaches to things produced
or. would inevitably separate the people into the very rich
he very poor. He saw the wrong that after centuries ate
^art of Rome, that produces the gaunt misery of Ireland,
f today crowding families into single rooms and filling our
with tramps."
Decision Apparently Is
To Disagree Agreeably

WHEN PRESIDENT Ephraim Katrir of Israel
was prevented from speaking for 25 or
30 minutes as he arose to talk at the Univer-
sity of Michigan recently, he joined a growing
group facing the irritation of an intensifying
and malignant form of protest in America.
The distinguished world statesman and bio-
physicist had gone to Ann Arbor to receive an
honorary degree from the university's law
school. His opponents chose that place, that
time, and that occasion to chant "Free Pales-
tine" and "Down With Zionism."
WHICH OF us does not deplore and abhor
such conduct? And in condemning it, how many
of us are willing to apply our disfavor to simi-
lar demonstrations now common in a nation
holding freedom of expression and communica-
tion among its cardinal values?
Next to such confrontations over Middle-
East tensions, the most severe in America have
erupted when Prof. William B. Shockley, of
Stanford University, has been denied his right
to stleak dn his theory of racial genetics. (This

AS SERIOUS as this game of gag-the-speak-
er may be, a related phenomenon is starting to
take a h~avy toll also. My reference here is to
the appearance of angry, shouting opponents of
public figures at functions usually unrelated to

rTVE LOST world of East European Jews is
brought to life through photographs de-
picting the shtetl from 1860-1920 in Abraham
Schulman's "The Old Country," (N.Y., Scrib-
ner's Sons. $12.95, 210 pp.) Photographs recall
to mind the Chinese proverb about one picture
being worth 10,000 words.
Isaac Bashevis Singer in his foreword,
writes that the book "shows us the victims as
they lived, worked, worshipped, hoped ."
One can learn more from the pictures about
the shtetl and its Jews than from books on the
subjects. Shulman's introduction is a worthy
historical accompaniment to the photographs.
"ATLAS OF the Arab-Israeli Conflict," by
Martin Gilbert (N.Y.. Macmillan Publishing
Company. $"5.95) contains 101 maps made by
T. A. Bickell. Gilbert is a British historian who
conceived the map idea and wrote explanatory
notes on the corner of each map. He traces the
Zionist struggle from its beginnings to March,
The first section includes maps indicating
locations of the Jews of Palestine, as well as
Jewish communities in Europe from 1,000
B.C.E. to 1880. There are, however, significant

Edward M. Kennedy was assailed by outsiders
when he came to a Boston hotel luncheon re-
cently to accept the Christian A. Herter Me-
morial Award for his views and activities re-
garding foreign affairs.
A day or two later, opponents of mandate
busing to achieve desegregation jeered Federal
District Judge W. Arthur Garrity when he re-
ceived an award from the Boston Bar Associa-
tion for the way he has conducted himself in

AS THE Presidential election primaries and
campaigns approach in America's Bicentennial
year, we have good reason to believe that such
raucous and ill-mannered attempts to stifle
speech and annoy public figures will multiply.

behold on television not only tear at the fabrio

Trustees of Yale Universitv have recently
.i.t.1. jna n ... 3f -.j : 3 a' a
adopted a policy providing Tor suspension or
expulsion of students for "willful and persis-
tent" disruption of free speech at Yale. This
may work for a compact, controllable area like
a university campus but could not be applied
to disruptions on city streets, in places of pub-
lic assembly and other such locations.
AND OVERARCHING our concern about
the wrath and tumult generated in these cur-
rent cases is the need to return again and
again to a search for effective ways to resolve
intergroup tensions.

Maps of Middle East
to the New World after the expulsion from
Portugal in 1497 and the take-over of Portugal
by Spain in 1580. The important communities
of Geuta and Tetuan (once known as "Little
Jerusalem") are also omitted.
THE MAPS of the Jews of Palestine. 636-
1880, should be sent to Assad and Kissinger,
after minor corrections. Gilbert writes that the
Jews formed a majority in Jerusalem "by
W. M. Thompson, D.D., although known as
an anti-Semite, wrote in "The Land and the
Book" (Harper Brothers, 1886) that almost 80
per cent of Jerusalem's population was Jewish
much earlier than 1880. He noted that prior to
1837, Safed, "one of the four holy cities of the
Jews" had more than 50 per cent Jews and
that they had been there for 500 vears.
GILBERT MIGHT also find confirmation
in "Today in Syria and Palestine," by William
Elroy Curtis (1903). who reported that the
Turkish authorities "assert that the Jews con-
stitute at least three-fourths and perhaps four-
fifths of the Jerusalem population."
The author omitted a map covering 1908
in which England unilaterally detached Sinai
from the Ottoman Empire and gave Egypt some
amorphous hegemony over the area.

twish Studies Courses Just too Specialized for General Knowledge
rUDENT taking a major in Jewish studies at
[e University of California at Los Angeles has
led the program as one "designed for produc-
[holars in Judaica rather than involved, edu-
Jews who are not necessarily interested in be-
Jewish professionals."

|or Jewish communal work, the program "can

_ SAID that the program was providing her
a scholarly foundation from which I can con-
my education and eventually find a career
i the Jewish community." She added there were
many students taking the major "with the same de-
sire to work with the Jewish community."
But. she declared, the student "seeking a gen-
eral Jewish background" might be "discouraged and
frustrated" by the program, which she said was the
target of "charges" that it was "more of a graduate
program than an undergraduate one."
SHE SAID another "common complaint has to
do with the lack of scope and breadth in the classes
offered" in the Jewish studies major. She asserted
that "many topics are strikingly absent."
Among those she described as "most conspicu-
ously missing are courses on the Jewish Woman and
the American Jewish Community, more classes deal-
ing with Israel, courses on Classical Jewish Texts,
classes in Anti-Semitism and the Holocaust."
SHE ALSO contended that the Jewish studies major
was lacking in areas of Jewish history and Hebrew
classes "on more imaginative and advanced levels."
She asserted that there were students taking the
major who were concurrently enrolled at UCLA and
the University of Judaism here "who complain bit-
terly of having to take classes they feel are necessary
for their major outside of UCLA.

The Jewish Floridian and Shojar of Hollywood
. Friday, June 6
The price of silence was the
Warsaw ghetto. Bergen-
Belsen. Auschwitz. Dachau.
The priceof silence was
horror, tragedy, cruelty. And,
for six million Jews, for
millions of others, the price
of silence was death.
Long before the terrible
price was paid, there were
warnings. We could not
believe them. We did not
heed them. Inevitably, words
of hate became deeds of
Now thirty years after the
horrible revelations of the
death camps, the old words
of hate are heard once again.
The signs can be seen.
The warnings can be heard.
They must not be ignored.
Silence can mean extinction.
Freedom demands vigilance.
Whatever happens to Jews
anywhere happens to Jews
This is no time to be silent.
This is the time to give voice
to our concern and our
Speak through us and you
address those human needs
which demand attention. You
bring help to newly arrived
immigrants in Israel.
You bring hope and comfort
to those who need us here in
our community. Speak
through us and you speak to
all Jews everywhere who
need help now.
Speak with a gift.
Speak now, so that we
never again pay
the price of silence.
