Hollywood Leaders Confer With Prime Minister
At a luncheon attended by
500 representatives of American
Jewry's top leadership, Israeli
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
spoke of the three meetings he
had had with President Gerald
Ford and re-narked that "the
road to getting something
achievH is still a long one."
ATTENDING the briefing,
which was closed to the press,
were Lewis E. Cohn, cochair-
man of the 1 Ing drive in Greater Hollywood;
: Pritcher, t-easu'-er of
the South Broward Jwish Fed-
eration: and Federation Execu-
Director Robert Pearlman.
"We must pray for peace,"
Mr Rabin stated, "b-it a peace

Rotl-jtin. t* Prime Minister
said that "fortunately, black
fears have not taken place, but
rather the reverse. Events went
along lin^s predictedfor ex-
ample, the Suez Canal was
opened without withdrawal.
"There are limits to Israel's
concessions." he added. "There
is n right for countries ... to
say 'No!' and stand behind it.
What was not ac3"*t*br i*1
M-r-h is not acceptable today."
MR. RABIN ob*srve1 that 'Is-
rael is strong enoug'i to take
risks for Deace," referring to
the dwindling forces in the
Sinai, "and will continue to do
sc. If there is a change on the
part of others, there will also
be one forthcoming from us.

The luncheon, sponsored by
the national UJA. focused at-

money to enable the continua-

Katz Represents Hollywood
At Jewish Agency's Assembly
Herbert K3tz, president of the
Jewish Federation of South
Broward. was the representa-
tive from Hollywood at the
fourth annual Assembly of the
Reconstituted Jewish Agency In
Jerusalem last month.
A total of 36 delegates from
some 67 American Jewish com-
munities participated in this
year's assembly, which focused
on the tescific problems and
responsibilities of the Jewish
Agency and its departments in
achieving the utmost efficiency
in the utilization of available
"Resolutions presented by the
various committees of the As-
sembly defined goals and rec-
ommended actions of the Agen-
cy in the fields of immigration
and absorption, rural settle-
ment, youth and education, and
housing and social problems,"
according to Mr. Katz.
"The ultimate issue confront-
ing Assembly delegates," he
added, "was to determine the
1975-76 budget for the Agency,
with emphasis on how, through
the support of world Jewry, the
Agency can best meet the needs
of Israel's people in the year
Rabin Declares-No
Secret Talk With Ford
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Prime Minister's Office denounced as "lies and false-
hoods" reports published here that Premier Yitzhak Rabin and President Ford had
reached a "secret agreement" in Washington on a new interim accord between Israel
and Egypt. The report, published in Maariv, cited "diplomatic sources in Washington"
as the source of that information.
Political observers believe that the Cabinet will not be called upon to take any new
decisions at this time. Rabin himself is understood to believe that further clarifications
must come from Cairo before Israel can make any shift in its position of last March
when it rejected Egypt's terms for an interim settlement.

Fred Sichel And Eve Weiss
To Be Among Special Guests
Lewis E. Cohn. chairman of
the committee arranging a South
Broward leadership weekend at
Palmaire Country Club Aug.
1-3, has announced that in ad-
dition to Irving Bernstein and
Allan Pollock there will be two
other special guests.
Participants will have an op-
portunity to meet and converse
with Fred Sichel and Mrs. Eve
Sichel is a member of the UJA
national campaign cabinet, pres-
ident of the Jewish Federation
of Central New Jersey, delegate
to the Jewish Agency Assem-
bly, and national board mem-
ber of the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds.
Mrs. Weiss, an attorney, is
director of the Women's Divi-
sion of the UJA, which she has
headed for the past five years,
a member of the Board of High-
er Education for New York
City, and a participant in this
year's Jewish Agency Assem-
Reservations should be made
as soon as possible through the
South Broward Federation. The
cost is $82 per person; children
under 13 will be charged an
additional $12 per day, and over
13, $16 per day.
Activities for children will be
coordinated by Ruth Spitzer.
The Cabinet's decision to
permit, in principle, the ex-
port of Israel's new super-
sonic jet fiphter plane, the
"Kfir," will have no immedi-
ate practical effects on Is-
rael's economy.
But it has already drawn
sharp criticism from Marcel
Dassault, the manufacturer
of France's famous Mirage
jets against which the "Kfir"
may ultimately compete on
the world's markets.
conceded that there are, at
present, no orders from any
foreign country for the "Kfir"
and that it might be several
years before any materialize.
But the Cabinet's decision gave
Israel Aircraft Industries, manu-
facturers of the "Kfir" the
green light to plan ahead for
increased production.
The "Kfir" has been on the
assembly line for some time,
though it was unveiled to the
public only last April. Accord-
ing to foreign sources, the jets
are being produced at the rate
of four per month at present.
The Israeli Air Force report-
edly intends to order about 200
of the type.
The "Kfir" is similar to the
French Mirage V, but is equip-
ped with the more powerful
American J-79 engine used in
the Phantoms and incorporates
certain Israeli improvements
and innovations.
ITS CHIEF selling point,
when it goes on the world
market, will be its relatively
low cost.
According to Israel Aircraft
Industry officials, the planes
will sell for about $4 million
The Cabinet's decision to
authorized export of Israel's
first home-built combat aircraft
was reportedly based on the
Continped on Page 9
DURING HIS five days of
conferences with American
leaders, Rabin stuck to the prin-
ciple of "parallel concessions"
by both sides, a position en-
dorsed by the Cabinet before
he left for the U.S.
Rabin indicated in his public
statements before leaving the
U.S., and on his return to Is-
rael, that he was not satisfied
with Egypt's responses which
were conveyed to him by Pres-
ident Ford and Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger.
He and other Israeli and
American officials, including
Kissinger, have said that fur-
ther contacts must be pursued
through diplomatic channels be-
fore any decision can be made
on the resumption of the Amer-
ican initiative toward an in-
terim agreement.

appear determined to avoid the
pitfalls of last' March when
Kissinger's "shuttle" diplomacy
collapsed. The reasons for the
collapse were said to have been
inadequate preparation, misun-
derstandings and unjustified ex-
Public opinion in Israel is
still uncertain as to what suc-
cess Rabin had in the U.S. in
advancing the chances of a
partial settlement with Egypt.
But Rabin is credited for the
apparent improvement in U.S.-
Israeli relations which had de-
teriorated sharply after the
March fiasco.
The Premier was praised in
the press for having managed
to wring from Kissinger a re-
luctant admission that his
"shuttle" failure may have been
caused by genuine misunder-
standings rather than by Is-
raeli intransigence.
RABIN MAY also have suc-
ceeded in convincing President
Ford that while America's in-
terests rank high among Israel's
concerns, no Israeli govern-
ment can be expected to place
them above what it believes to
be Israel's own national inter-
ests, newspa.jers said her
According to Maariv, how-
ever, a "secret accord" was
concluded between Rabin and
Ford by which Israel would re-
turn the Mitla and Gidi Passes
to Egypt in exchange for a non-
use of force pact to last for
three years.
The report said that Rabin
had originally demanded a five-
year pact but was persuaded by
Ford and Kissinger that this
was unattainable from Egypt.
Rabin and Ford agreed also
to be particularly cautious and
non-committal in their public
statements for the time being.
Maariv said.
March was that it would not re-
turn the strategic passes with-
out a formal undertaking of
nor-h liii> toncv by Egypt.
Government circles insist
that this is still Israel's position
but that Israel would be pre-
pared for a partial withdrawal
from the passes in return for
something less than a full non-
belligerency pledge from Cairo.
' Meanwhile, President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt was reported to
be in favor of an overall settle-
ment of the Middle East con-
flict, although he saw it as only
one of three alternative ap-
proaches to the problem.
He said, in an interview with
the Beirut daily. An Nahar.
that the alternatives were a re-
newal of step-by-step diploma-
cy before the Geneva confer-
ence is reconvened or recon-
vening the conference and coi.

Captain Mikhail Eidleman,

the following letter requesting
help in obtaining permission to

as all the rest of my relatives

"Until March, 1971, I worked
as a captain of a merchant ship.
Then our family applied for
emigration to Israel and while
my daughter and my sisters
were allowed to leave, my wife
and I were refused.
"For the past four years
these refusals have continued
on the grounds of the 'secrecy'
of my former work. In the be-

years' waiting period, but since
then, the period has extended
to five years, seven years, and
now again five years. .
"During these years of wait-
ing, I. as a person 'leading a
parasitic and anti-social way of
life,' had to work as a carrier
and now I am unemployed.
"I have worked hard all my
life. I became a sailor 42 years
ago and since 1946 I served as

Some Encouraging Signs
Those who expected an agreement between Israel

still remains that until Egypt demonstrates she is will-
ing to make concessions, as Israel is. no agreement can
be reached.
But the Rabin meetings with President Ford and
Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger did result in a
public relaxation of the tension that had built up be-
tween Israel and the United States since Kissinger's
"shuttle diplomacy" broke down last March.
There was an exchange of views and an apparent
understanding of each other's position. As Rabin said
upon his return to Israel: "I would not want to say that
all I said was accepted by the Americans, but at the
same time not everything said by the Americans was
accepted by me."
This is as it should be.

Pressure Would Be Fatal
Added to this were Kissinger's warm words at a
dinner for Rabin in which he called differences between
Israel and the United States "merely family quarrels."
This does not mean that the situation is still not
tense. The Ford Administration still wants very badly
to reach an agreement between Israel and Egypt. But
perhaps this new publicly-expressed understanding,
backed by the strong support for Israel in Congress,
will cause the Administration to think twice before
attempting to pressure Israel into taking steps the Jew-
ish State feels would endanger her security.
For in the end, Rabin is after all right. No one,
not even the United States, can be relied on by Israel
to protect her own security. Only Israel can do that for

Solar Energy', Corporate Stau
WHEN I came to Florida from
the north as a youngster,
I found solar heaters a quaint
phenomenon, with their huge
glass panels prominently em-
bedded in the roof and "boost-
er-heaters" in the garage for
those presumably rare days
when it was gray and rainy.
They disappeared rather ra-
pidly in the affluence of post-
World War II and post-Korea
society. After all, gas and elec-
tricity were so much more re-
liable and efficient. Who cared
about the cost?
Now, because of the energy
crunch, when EVERYONE cares
about the cost, solar heaters
have come back into vogue
again, and the Congress is
spending a fortune to stimu-
late solar energy research.
MY INTUITIVE feeling al-
ways was that solar energy is

toy devised by some addle-
brained miser who wanted no

I deduced these feelings from

Will History Vindicate British?
Volume 5

Los Angeles Times Syndicate
The British broke a lance for
Europe, in their recent vote on
the Common Market. Will his-
tory at some point break a lance
for the British, and teach them
how to rescue themselves from
their current plight?
There was a historic irony in
the British "yes" vote in the
referendum on adhering to the
Common Market. For it was
France's President Charles de
Gaulle who first said no in
1963, when the British wanted
in, and it was De Gaulle who
made the referendum as a pop-
ular mandate his trademark.
NOW THE British have re-
paid him on both scores with a
satisfying piece of symbolism-
repaid De Gaulle's narrow,
mean, malicious no with a yes,
and used his own referendum
tool to do it.
On the no side there was an
unholy alliance of the insular
nationalism of the diehard
right, with the parochial social-
ism of the lefttwo groups who
hate each other on every other
score but share the same view-
point as "little Englanders."
The left is afraid of the eco-
nomic competition of the cen-
trist nationsGermany, France,
Holland, Belgium, Italy.
The right is afraid that these
nations may go Communist, and
that Britain will someday be tied
to a Communist Europe.
THUS THE pro-Europe vote,
mainly by the middle class and
the moderate working class, was
a vote against both these fear-
ridden extremes.
But mainly its target was the
left wing of the British Labor
Party, led by Tony Benn and
Michael Foot, who have ob-
structed the development of the
British economy; have cowed
Prime Minister Harold Wilson
for some time, and who led a
majority of the Labor MPs
against him on the Common
Market issue.
Harold Wilson now faces his
moment of truth, which will
show whether he is master in
his own house; and how much
courage he has in asserting him-
self, not only against the anti-
market forces in his party and
government but also against
those who are leading the
British plunge into economic
ments form the same group.
Maybe Wilson is the lucky vic-
tor in the Europe struggle,
whose real champion was Ted
Heath. Or maybe he planned it
that way, with his mastery of
wile and guile, waiting for Tony
Benn and his left cohort to trap
themselves and go to their self-
Benn has only a transient im-
portance as a symbol. The real
question is whether Wilsan
dares tackle the trade unions
on inflation, and do something
about wage increases, strikes
and the eroded work ethic.
The contention of the left has
been that the other Common
Market countries have "export-
ed their unemployment" to
Britain. Certainly Britain has a
mounting trade deficit with the
other six nations.
But to have left the Market,
and built a trade wall of pro-
tective tariffs around Britain's
weak industries would have
solved nothing. Britain would
still have to meet its import
costs by selling its products on
a larger world market, and the
rising labor costs and dwin-
dling plowback of investments
which plague Britain todayj
would still plague it.
SOMEDAY, somehow, some*
one will know how to extricat
the British people from thi
plague. If Wilson can't or won't1
do it, then perhaps his Chan-
cellar of the Exchequer. Denii
Healey will succeed him as party
leader and do it. If Healey can't
or won't, then the new Tory
leader Margaret Thatcher, may
summon the will. If the crisis
becomes sharp enough, a coali-
tion cabinet of all three majof
parties may have to be th
The Italian case shows that
no economic situation is irre-
versible if the spirit to cope
with it is there. Only a few
months ago Italy seemed to be
locked into its position as the
prime sick man of Europe.
But a combination of good
Central Bank policies, alon
yvitji .some wise managerial c
cisions, and mostly the rratur,
ebullience of the Italian peop''
themselves, seemed to have-
worked a miracle which isnt
IN THE British case th
remedy is clearer than it **
in the Italian. It is to slow down
wage increases, whether W
wage-price controls or volun-
tary action; to cut inflation
half and thereby increase in-
vestment and cut joblessness,
and to make British products
competitive again.
This cannot be done without
the support of the people them-
selves. But their yes vote on U
Common Market shows tn
they may be rousing themselves
out of their long dream of in-
sularity and isolation. The que*
tion is whether they will awaK-

QUESTION: Why does a Tal-
Ut have blue stripes?
Hallandale, Florida
ANSWER: Tallit (Tallitot pi),
a Hebrew word whose original
meaning was gown or cloak,
now means a prayer shawl.
The Yiddish pronunciation is
Tales, pi. Talesim.
Originally the Tallit was a
rectangular mantle that looked
like a blanket and was worn by
nun in aacisnt times. It was
usual;: made either of wool or
linen, and probably resembled
the Abbayah (blanket) still
worn by bedouin for protection
against the weather.
There is no biblical com-
mandment to wear a Tallit ex-
cept in the fulfillment of the
commandment for fringes (Heb.
"The Lord spoke to Moses.
saying: Speak to the Israelite
people and instruct them to
make for themselves fringes on
the corners of their garments
throughout the generations; let
them stitch a cord of blue to
the fringe at each corner. That
shall be your fringe; look at it
and recall all the command-
ments of the Lord and observe
them, so that you do not fol-
low your heart and eyes in your
lustful urge. Thus you shall be
reminded to observe all my
commandments and to be Holy
to your God." (Numbers 15:37-
"The biblical commandment
prescribing the entwining of a
blue cord in the fringes is re-
garded as essential because
blue, the color of the sky, was
also supposed to be the color
of the 'throne of glory' (Mena-
choth 43 b).
"Difficulties in obtaining the
dyeing material for this pur-
pose caused Rabbinic authori-
ties in the second century c.e.
to waive this requirement" (En-
cyclopaedia Judaica vol. 16, p.
It is believed that the cus-
tom of putting blue stripes on
the Tallit was in order to ful-
fill the commandment for one
cord of the Zizit (fringes) to
have the blue color.
The Rabbis regard the Zizit
as a reminder to the Jew to
observe the religious duties in
a similar function as that of the
Mczu/ah on the doorpost and
the Tefillin (phylacteries) on
the head and the arm.
Following exile and disper-
sion, the Jews adopted the cus-
tom of wearing clothing similar
to that of their neighbors. The
Tallit was discarded as a cloak
and became a religious gar-
ment for purpose of prayer.
The blue color of the stripes
on the Tallit is not mandatory.
A Tallit may have blue, black
or purple stripes.
The Tallit also varies in size
and style. It must be made of
wool, linen or silk, but under
no circumstances may the ma-
terials be mixed. The color of
the material is usually white.
In order to beautify them,
many prayer shawls are em-
broidered or ornamented. To
enhance their use, the prayer
for putting on the Tallit is often
woven into the fabric of the

"I had a very rough time
being accepted because at that
time they didn't think it was a
good idea for a person with
poor hearing to teach others
with the same handicap. But
I graduated in 1949 and got a
job teaching at my old alma
mater, the Lexington School for
the Deaf. I was the first hear-
ing-impaired teacher they ever
But Dr. Jerry Reichstein's
"firsts" really began to mount
up only after he and his wife
finally got to Israel in 1954.
His first "first" was to estab-
lish a system for testing all
school children in Netanya to
find those with impaired hear-
"I still remembered that my
own kindergarten teacher
thought I was retarded when
the fact was that I simply
couldn't hear properly," he said.
SOON HE was discovered by
JDC/Malben, the American
Joint Distribution Committee's
agency for its services in Is-
rael, and for the JDC he achiev-
ed another first, setting up an
audiological unit in the out-
patient clinic of the JDC/Mal-
ben Pardess-Katz Hospital.
In the years that followed he
had JDC/Malben's continued
support and pioneered an in-
credible number of programs
for the hearing-impaired pre-
school education, training
teachers, integrating hearing-
impaired children with normal-
hearing children in regular
schools. Ke became director of
Speech and Hearing Str\ices
for Tel Aviv's schools.
Perhaps one of his most im-
portant achievements, in the
U.S. as well as in Israel, was
to help break down the prej-
udice against using the deaf to
teach the deaf.
"There's a distinct advan-
tage, instead of a disadvantage,
to being hard of hearing my-
self. It makes me better able to
understand and respond to the
children's needs, it makes it
easier for me to talk with au-
thorities and pressure for add-
ed services, and it makes for
more empathv with parents.
"THE LOVE and encourage-
ment I got from my own par-
ents makes me a walking exam-
ple of the primary role parental
love plays in the education and
general upbringing of hearing-
impaired children."
Jerry considers his work has
only begun. He's trying to get
a permanent course for teach-
ers of the deaf established at
Tel Aviv University, and he
has initiated a proposal for a
center to provide schools with
audio-visual equipment and
educational software for chil-
dren with impaired hearing.
"JDC'Malben is giving me
every encouragement with these
projects," Jerry says, "and
that means I have a good
chance of their support if I can

Jewish Law and Survival
By DR. SAMUEL Z. JAFFE, Temple Beth El, Hollywood
' The war in Southeast Asia has ended, at least for us. Our
troops have been recalled and American personnel evacuated.
But the agony of that conflict, whose outcome we sought to in-
fluence, and its tragic results, continue to haunt us. They are
written large on our collective conscience.
The terrible loss in life and treasure, which this nation has
suffered during the past decade and a half, is well documented.
Ovar 56,000 Americans were killed, 303,000 wounded, and 25,000
totally disabled. Our military expenditure is already over $150
billion. The Department of Commerce has estimated that the U.S.
will be paying on the Vietnam war at least until the year 2045.
and by then the total bill will have come to $352 billion.
But the greatest casualty is the U.S. itself. Not only have we
experienced one of the worst military and diplomatic defeats in
American history, but the moral climate of our nation has been
eroded. Our psychic wounds are deep and extensive, and may
show themselves in a number of ways for some time to come.
Already they are evident in the credibility gap which has
developed, in the distrust of the American people towards their
government, in the battle between Congress and the President
for the control of foreign policy, in the alienation of our young,
in the problems of inflation, recession and unemployment, and
in the trauma of demonstration and violence which have become
endemic to this age.
Vietnam has created a general malaise afflicting our society
and has torn this nation asunder. In his book, "The Wound With-
in," Alexander Kendrick writes, "the war accentuated the negative
in the thesis and antithesis of American life. Even as Vietnam
became increasingly Americanized, so America became increas-
ingly Vietnamized."
Our President now urges upon Americans to close ranks and
forget Vietnam. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger proclaims that
th* tragic ordeal is now behind us, and that recrimination of any
kind can serve no purpose. But the tragedy of Vietnam cannot be
forgotten any more than one can erase from mind the picture
of the. little girl, naked and napalmed, fleeing in agony from her
We must not close that agonizing and disastrous chapter in
our recent history without a congressional reassessment of our
involvement, and a careful and objective evaluation of the nature
and extent of this nation's commitments at present. It was George
Santayana who said that, "those who will not learn from history
ar condemned to repeat it." If we are to safeguard our future,
wa must reexamine our past.
The sudden collapse of South Vietnam and Cambodia has
brought about the removal of America's presence in that part of
the world, but has not ended our interest and involvement in
th* plight of the thousands of refugees who have fled in fear
' of reprisals.
Many of them have worked for our government in various
capacities in a most exposed position for years, and had been
promised safety if and when America's military and political
presence had to be withdrawn.
Many of them escaped and found a haven of refuge on these
shores. In order to lighten some of our guilt and assume our moral
responsibilities, we have opened our doors to over 100,000 Viet-
namese, 60,000 of whom are children. Mobilizing for mercy in
' such a fashion will ease our collective conscience. There are how-
' ever, many Americans, including some in high places in govern-
ment, who have raised objections against the admission of these
These attitudes are either an outgrowth of the frustrations
engendered by the war itself, or because of the uncertain eco-
nomic conditions which prevail, or worse, as an expression of
racism. One lesson which we must learn from our recent ordeal,
is that by our involvement and our attempt to influence the out-
come of th* war, we have moral responsibilities to its victims.
The ultimate test of the strength and integrity of any nation
consists in its readiness to open its gates to the persecuted and
displaced. In the final analysis, it will make it easier for us to
live with ourselves and with our guilt. As our tradition has de-
clared, "righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to
any people for only the work of righteousness shall be peace."
What is the reason for
the Fast of the Seventeenth
Day of Tammuz?
In the course of the destruc-
tion of the first temple in Jeru-
salem, the wall was breached
on the .ninth day of Tammuz.
(Jeremiah 52:6). When the
destruction of the second tem-
ple took place the wall was
then breached on the seven-
teenth day of the month Tam-
Not wanting to make two
days of mourning and fasting
in the same month, the rabbis
set aside the seventeenth day
of Tammuz as the day of mourn-
ing and fasting for the breach
of the wall in the case of the
destruction of both temples.
Even though this was the
major reason for the Fast of
Tammuz, other regrettable in-
cidents occurred on this same
day. Moses broke the first set
of tablets on this day when he
descended the mountain of Si-
nai and found the Hebrews
worshipping the Golden Calf.
Furthermore, it was on this day
when the Graeco-Syrians be-
sieged the wall of Jerusalem
that the daily sacrifices stopped
in the temple since the He-
brews could no longer procure
the lambs due to he siege
which cut off their supply.
A Roman leader burned a
Torah scroll publicly later on
in history on this same day.
The burning of a Torah was re-
garded as a great calamity for
the people of Israel.
Either in the days of the Mac-
cabean crisis or later during the
Roman period it is maintained
that an idol was placed in the
temple of Jerusalem on this
day thus bringing defilement to
this holy sanctuary.
In observing the fast day on
the seventeenth day of the He-
brew month of Tammuz all
these tragic events are brought
to mind. These events are still
remembered in current times
because the tragedies caused by
these events have never been
rectified yet. There still is no
temple in Jerusalem. There
still is no daily sacrifice. The
spirit of rebellion and defile-
ment is still evident in many
Jewish communities. Therefore,
the damage of yesterday has
never been repaired.
Jews remember these facts
because they still live with hope
that there will some day be the
restitution and re-establishment
of the temple of old with its
sacrifices. Its state of purity and
its spirit of dedication and com-
mitment which will be evident
in Jewish communities all over
the world.
Does Jadalam permit
Judaism does not permit ster-
ilization. The rabbis trace this
to a Biblical source (Leviticus
22:24) where practices like this
are forbidden in the Bible.
Some commentaries (Abra-
banel, Chinuch and Ibn Ezra)
25 TAMUZ 7:57
consider such a practice as in-
terfering with matters which
are only the prerogative of the
Almighty, they claim.
Furthermore, one who has
himself castrated or sterilized
in some way indicates his dis-
satisfaction with the world be-
cause he evidently would like
to see less people enjoy it.
Judaism always had a positive
outlook on life and the world
as a whole.
Sterilization in males is a
more severe crime than ster-
'Jization in females. Further-
more, if it is a matter of saving
an individual's live by steriliz-
ing him, this is of course per-
There ar< Jewish law authori-
ties who claim that under cer-
tain conditions females may
sterilize themselves by taking
certain medication to drink, be-
cause the command to repro-
duce was generally charged to
the male.
insights on questions of
Jewish interest
Executive Editor
Encyclopaedia Judaica
Why do Jews oppose
calendar reform?
Attempts at calendar reform
have been prompted by two de-
sires: to achieve a closer syn-
chronization of the civil year of
365 days with the astronomic
fact that the earth revolves
around the sun in nearly 365'i
days, and to make a symmetrical
division of the year. The Gre-
gorian system now in use
achieves a close synchroniza-
tion of the civil year with Hie
astronomic year, but the calen-
dar lacks symmetry. A date of
the month never coincides with
the same day of the week in
successive years, and the
months have a varying number
of days. Moreover, the year is
not divisible into either two
equal halves or four equal quar-
ters, the authoritative Encyclo-
paedia Judaica explains.
One of the reforms suggested
is to divide the civil year into
13 months, each of 28 days; this
total of 364 days would be sup-
plemented every six years
(sometimes five), with the ad-
dition of an extra week to the
last month.
A more popular suggested re-
form is the so-called World
Calendar, which proposes divid-
ing the year into four quarters
of 91 days (three months of 30,
30, and 31 days), giving a total
of 364 days. The extra day need-
ed to make the calendar con-
form to the astronomic cycle is
to be suspended between De-
cember 31 and January 1 of
each year. It would be called
either Blank Day or World Day,
but would be dateless. In a leap
year, there will either be two
such days in succession, or
another added at the end of
June. Such a system would be
almost entirely symmetrical,
says the Encyclopaedia Judaica.
Each date of the month would
always fall on a given day of
the week, with a recurring one-
year pattern. However, whereas
the Gregorian reform affected
rMttrm the regularity of the
davs of the week, nor any pos-
sible rite occuring on them, the
main disadvantage of the pro-
posed World Calendar from the
Jewish point of view is that it
would destroy the fixity of the
Sabbath. In one year the Sab-
bath coincided with the day
known as Saturday, in the fol-
lowing year it would shift to
Such a reform, the Judaica
states, would be unacceptable to
Judaism, whose day of rest de-
pends on an unbroken sequence
of six working days followed by
the Sabbath (Ex. 20:9-10 and
Deut. 5:13-14). Opposition has
been expressed to any world
authority rearranging the Sab-
bath, which is considered nei-
ther merely a social institution
nor simply a day of prayer, but
a fundamental of faith. In 1929,
the Synagogue Council of
America (comprising Orthodox,
Conservative .and Reform con-
gregations) declared that it
would oppose any calendar re-
form likely to interfere w:th the
regularity of the Sabbnth. In
1931, J. H. Hertz, B itish chief
rabbi, vigorously opposed the
World Calendar reform before a
committee established by the
League of Nations to consider
the question for the same rea-

Sinister Shimon Peres who,
Xhile attending the Paris Air
|how recently, was said to have
een impressed by the broad
pterest shown in the "Kfir" by
otential customers.
THE ISRAELI plane was not
displayed at the air show. The
official reason given was that
it could not be readied in time.
But the French authorities are
known to have been displeased
at the idea of displaying a com-
petitive aircraft similar to the
Mirage but much cheaper.
Criticism of the Cabinet's de-
cision to export the "Kfir" was
summed up in the newspaper,
Maariv. According to the critics,
the credibility of Israel's needs
for sophisticated American
planes for its Air Force would
be greatly weakened by the
knowledge that Israel has a sur-
plus of planes for export.
States, which is vigorously
seeking markets for its jet
fighters especially the new

than the manufacturers of the

image in the eyes of the world
as a small country desperately
seeking arms for her defense
will now be questioned and may
have adverse effects when Is-
rael seeks arms in the future.

A recent survey revealed
that the majority of these dor-
mant bonds are being held by
people who are either not aware
that the bonds have matured or
believe that the bond is still
helping Israel.
"A matured Israel Bond,"
Parson said, "does not help Is-
rael. If it is not cashed in, the
money remains idle in an es-
crow account."
The State of Israel Bonds of-
fice is urging all bond purchas-
ers to check to ascertain if they
have in their possession any
redeemable Israel Bonds.
"If the bond holder would
cash in his cr her matured
bond and purchase a new bond,
then Israel could reap the ben-
efits of money which is active-
ly working towards the stabili-
zation of her economic develop-
ment," Parson said.
Bond redemprron and repur-
chasing are just two more ways
in which the South Florida Is-
rael Bond Organization is try*
ing to ease Israel's most des-
perate economic situation

Bn compendium of digests of books that make

American image of Jews to the extent

tonsidered a reflection.
[THE SPECTRUM of good, bad and indif-

and drama. The period until this century

Simon Radowicz (Jewish Publication Society,
$6.95, 448 pp.), edited by Nathan N. Glatzer,'
with a foreword by Abram L. Sachar, and bio-
graphical introduction by the author's son, B.
C. Ravid, is a collection of essays by the late
distinguished Brandeis professor who wrote in
Hebrew. Other than the essay on Jewish learn-

erudition and originality of this great intellec-
tual who was born in Russia.

bered for next year is "A Passover Haggadah"

It is a beautiful Haggadah with a tradi-

translation. It is beautifully done.

"Well, Mr. President," said Sadat, "You
know, we recently had a little war with Israel."
"Oh yes," said the President, "I know all
about Israel. You know our backing of Israel
goes back to the days of Woodrow Wilson, the
Balfour Declaration and the first World War.
It was in that war that all of the Arab nations
were given their independence, and we thought
it right that the Jews should also get back
their little old homeland; the United States was
first of the great powers to recognize the inde-
pendence of Israel."
"Yes, Mr. President, as I was saying, we
had a war with Israel and Russia furnished us
with the weapons for the war. Now Russia is
demanding payment she will not even al-

arms, she may not give you any more arms,
and you will not be able to start another war."
"Yes, Mr. President."

Tel Aviv
\f ANY MAY think that at a lime when Israel is bedevilled
by so many internal and external political and financial
difficulties that this is not the time for the operation ol an
international set of spoits games which the Hapoel Associa-
tjon conducted earlier this month.
On the other hand, the government itself felt that the
Hapoel Games were very important for the local citizenry as
well as the world at large. Israel wants to show that despite
the fact that it is plagued by so many problems it still has time
to participate in sports competition.
WHAT IS more important, the government feels impelled
to show the world at large that it is safe to bring sports teams
to the State of Israel.
Some 30 countries participated in the recently completed
Hapoel Games and all of the athletes, numbering POO, left
Israel with a feeling of security and satisfaction.
The Hapoel organization had the games well organized,
abetted by all of the other sports groups in the country, and
the action in some 20 sports was continuous and flowed
THE UNITED States sent over a contingent of close to 70
athletes and administrators and made its presence felt by cap-
turing a large quantity of gold medals which were made avail-
able to winners.
In swimming alone, where 22 gold medals were available,
the U.S. copped 21. One gold went to a strong, superb Rumanian
girl swimmer who prevailed in her event, the 100-meter free-
Alter a lapse of four years the United States basketball
team again asserted their superiority by winning the gold
medal. The U.S. was represented by two teams, the National
Association of Intercollegiate Athletics select All-Stars and the
Capitols of Los Angeles, who are the current AAU champions.
THE NAIA boys, by winning all three of its games in a
round robin competition against its fellow American team, and
two Israeli national squads were awarded first place. Second
place went to the Israel "A" national team, while third place
went to the Capitols.
It is interesting to note that both American teams defeated
the Israel national "A" squad whjch will represent the nation
in the European championships next menth in Yugoslavia.
CONFINED TO four sports the U.S. contingent was only
competitive in three with gymnastics serving as an exhibition
of the talent rather than in active competition.
Our Ameiican sprinters did very well. Steve Riddick, the
ICA champion in the 100-yards and 220-yards, took a gold
medal in both the 100 and 200-meter events here. A total of six
golds were picked up by the Americans in track and field, with
five silvers and four bronzes going to the club.
THE YOUNG lady in the American Hapoel contingent who
caught the eye of spectators was Denise Walker of Lowell,
Massachusetts, a 15-year old who appears slated to be Amer-
ica's top female gymnast within the next few years. She caught
everybody's fancy and was highlighted on several local tele-
vision shows.
The administrators of the Hapoel games, in the interest ol
economy, decided sometime ago when the Israeli Pound was
deflated, that the budget established Pound-wise at that time
would have to remain for the running of the games.
Yossi Inbar, Hapoel head here, advises us that by cut-
ting corners and zealously watching every Pound spent, the
organizing committee finished the games with the budget orig-
inally presented to the overall group no small feat in Israel
these days.

larshall's Impressive Credo: The Importance of Jewish Education
*0 SCORE and seven years ago, Louis Marshall,
the great American Jewish leader, stressed the
portancc of Jewish education in an impressive
His words are worth reproducing now when the
Pblem of Jewish education is coming more and
[re to the forefront in Jewish communities all over
country. In his infinite wisdom he said:
"GREAT AS has been and is my interest in
hat has been done for the relief of our brethren
|Eat~rn Europe and in Palestine, warm as is my
irvithy and pride in the various Jewish charitable
ptitutions in our great American cities, it is my
H conviction that there is nothing that the Jews
[this country can do which equals in importance
maintenance and development of its educational
Unless thie educational work is generously sup-
ported, everything else for which we may strive will
have been in vain.
"WHATEVER distinction is attached to the name
of the Jew is derived almost exclusively from the
fact that he lias given to the world those ethical
precepts that are exemplified in our Bible, that have
been illustrated by our great sages and teachers,
and that have been incorporated into the moral
concepts of the civilized world.
THE EXTENT of attention which the organized
Jewish communities are now paying to Jewish edu-
cation is indicated in a survey by the Council of
Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds. The results
of this survey have just been made public.
They show that Federations in 93 cities have
allocated more than $16 million in 1973.
This is about 13 per cent more than in the pre-
ceding year and 127 per cent higher than Beven
years ago. In some communities the increased allo-
cations for Jewish education made up more than 25
per cent of community funding for all local purposes.
THE FEDERATIONS arc no newcomers in the
field of Jewish education. Some of them have sup-
ported education 40 years ago as part of their wide
range of services to the Jewish community.
However, visible acceleration of the trend of
Federation's interest in the field of Jewish education
has developed in the past several years.
