He'll Urge
Ford To
Provide Aid
James L. Buckley said on his
arrival here that he would urge
President Ford to provide Israel
with greater than average mili-
tary assistance and expressed
concern over the Ford Adminis-
tration's current reassessment
of American Middle East policy.
"This is no time to re-evaluate
our policy towards Israelit is
a time to reaffirm it," the New
York Republican Conservative
BUCKLEY declined to com-
ment on the latest developments
which included a reported Ford
ultimatum to Israel to soften its
position on an interim agree-
ment with Egypt.
The Senator met with Pre-
mier Yitzhak Rabin, Defense
Minister Shimon Peres and
other government officials dur-
ing his stay in Israel.
Buckley said he was concern-
ed over Portugal's refusal to
allow U.S. transports to use
Azores airfields for an arms
airlift to Israel in the event of
another Middle East war.
FOR THAT reason, he said.
Ford should consider the need
to provide Israel with--larger
than average stores of military
equipment, spare parts, combat
consumables, up-to-date air-
craft, surface-to-surface mis-
siles and related materials
needed to meet the military
threat to Israel's survival.
Buckley said this war mate-
riel should be stored in several
parts of the world, including
the Middle East.

Who Decided
To Bring Back
Stemist Remains?
Herbert Katz, president of
the Jewish Federation of South
Broward, has announced the
formation of a "Community
Mission" to Israel which he has
described as "innovative and
Leaving New York Sunday.
Oct. 26, the 10-day tour will
encompass "a comprehensive
and up-to-the-minute exposure
to today's reality," Mr. Katz
"The mission will be briefed
by leading officials of the Jew-
ish Agency and the government,
and there will be planned pro-
grams most evenings. All hotels
will be deluxe."
The preliminary itinerary, ac-
cording to Mr. Katz, which may
be changed as conditions in Is-
rael change, includes:
A visit to Beit Kay, Con-
valescent Center for heroes
of the Yom Kippur War.
A visit to an absorption

lished and struggling com-
munities on the Lebanese

Observers here are attempt-

out success, who decided to
hold a state funeral for
Eliahu Hakim and Eliahu
Beit Tzuri, the Sternists
hanged in Egypt 30 years
ago and reburied on Mt.
Herzl with full military
honors. Official sources said
it was not a Cabinet deci-
Circles close to Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon inti-
mated that he had not been
involved in the decision-
making, although he, along
with Premier Yitzhak Rabin,
were among the thousands
of Israelis who paid their
respects before the two cof-
fins prior to the funeral and
President Ephraim Katzir
sent a wreath.
THE MEN, known in Israel
as "the two Eliahus," were sent
to Cairo in 1944 to assassinate
Lord Moyne, the then British
Resident Minister in the Mid-
dle East who opposed Jewish
immigration into Palestine.
They were caught, sentenced
to death and hanged in 1945
and were buried in the Jewish
cemetery in Cairo. Last week,
Israel released 20 convicted ter-
rorists to Egypt in exchange for
their remains.
The British Ambassador, Sii
Bernard Ledwidge, telephoned
the Foreign Ministry here to
deliver his government's ex-
pression of regret on behalf of
Foreign Secretary James Cal-
laghan over the decision to hold
a state funeral for Moyne's as-
THE MESSAGE expressed
"regret that the government of
Israel has seen fit to treat in
this way the bodies of two con-
victed assassins" at a time when
Britain, Israel and other state9
were making efforts to combat
international terrorism.
The message is understood to
have referred to the fact that
the Jewish community in Pales-
tine and the world Jewish lead-
ership had condemned the as-
sassination at the time and
strongly dissociated themselves
from it.
Israel is expected to deliver
a formal reply to Britain
through its Embassy in London.
THE BOARD of Deputies of
British Jews and Lord Roths-
child have also deplored Israel's
decision to give the Sternists a
heroes' burial.
Israeli circles indicated last
week that the decision was a
gesture in the interests of na-
tional unity and an indication
that the bitter controversy that
divided Israelis in the latter
years of the Palestine Mandate
and the early years of State-
hood over the violent tactics of
groups like the Sternists has
now been healed.

annual plenary instilling him in
office, Chernin argued that "the
greater danger is not in failing
to see new problems threaten-
ing Jewish life, but in failing
to recognize the new status en-
joyed by the American Jewish
"The greater danger is in bas-
ing our behavior and program
on the belief that American
Jevs are struggling to achieve
their goals in a sea of hostility,"
he declared.
Chernin said that polls and
studies since 1947 have shown
"a steady growth of positive
feelings" among Americans to-
ward Israel. He proposed that
American-Israeli relations be in-
terpreted "in long term perspec-
tive rather than in the imme-
difltfl focus of each day's head-
lines, gossip and rumor."
"A LITTLE paranoia is a
realistic perception of Jewish
history and essential to our sur-
vival," Chernin said.
But a "blind attitude" by
American Jews to their "hospit- \
able conditions" could lead to
"postures that elicit the very
antagonisms they seek to pre-
vent. They can become a self-
fulfilling prophecy threatening
our survival," he warned.
Chernin's speech was seen as
reactins: to concerns expressed j
by some Jewish elements that,
the Ford Administration's Mid-;
die East reassessment, the'
thre-it of another Arab oil em-
bargo and the economic po-
litical impacts of newly-rich
Arab states, along with intensi-
fied Arab propaganda are cre-
ating diminished American pub-

Jewish attitudes.

NCJW and Pioneer Women Hit
Mexico City Confab Resolution
NEW YORKIt was the beet
time; it was the worst time. It
was a success; it was a failure.
Everyone attending the Inter-
national Women's Year Con-
ference in Mexico City had a
separate point of view and in-
terpretation of what occurred:
what was the perspective of
three American Jewish women
Ann Robison, International
Affairs leader of the National
Council of Jewish Women, at-
tended the official U.S. gather-
ing called the Conference, as a
delegate from the International
Council of Jewish Women.
'I FOUND little comfort,"
she said, "either as an Ameri-
can or as a Jew. What we anti.
cipated actually happened, that
some repreentatives of UN
members turned the conference
into a political arena. A political
arena which expressed strong
anti-US. and anti-Israel senti-
ments. It disturbed me deeply
to see the original purposes of
the Conference so perverted
with nonsense resolutions link-
ing Zionism and apartheid."
The Tribune, the non-govern-
mental gathering across town
from the conference, was gen-
erally characterized by squab-
bling and chaos.
DENESE MANN, of Hartford,
Conn.. NCJW leader and Trib-
une delegate, said that "there
was enormous polarization be-
tween the American feminists
and the women who demanded
a 'new economic order.'
"Strictly speaking, the issues
of women's rights were lost in
the shuffle. And regardless of
the pious statements from the
developing nations that full
equality for women will come
with economic development,
I'm still concerned with the
problems of Jewish women in
those countries, who suffer on
two counts."
What ultimately is the mes-
sage for Jewish women?
Said Rose Fishkin, another
NCJW Tribune delegate from
Middlesex County, "I see two
things about Jewish women in
this respect. The first is that
where human rights are con-
cerned, Jewish women will
inevitably be leaders. It's part
of the way we have acted tradi-.
tionally and will continue to
"But the other thing, which
really struck me at this gather-
ing, is that Jewish women must
aiso look to their own special
needs, their own special prob-
lems, and their solidarity with
THE THREE women agreed
Jewish women all over the
that for long-range results, only
nitty-gritty work would be suc-
cessful. They pointed to NCJW's
advocacy role in support of the
ERA and Title IX, which prohib-
its sex discrimination in educa-
tion, and commented that the
U.S. Women's Agenda recently
passed by the Women's Action
Alliance would probably have
the most impact in the next few
The 100,000 members of the
NCJW are committed to a broad
program of education, commu-
nity service and citizen action.
Among its current priorities are
Women's Issues, the NCJW Re-
search Institute for Innovation
in Education in Jerusalem.
Also reacting to the confer-
ence's condemnation of Zion-
ism, Charlotte Stein, national
president of Pioneer Women,
called the vote a further at-
tempt by developing countries
to isolate Israel from the world
"I AM surprised not with-
standing past resolutions adopt-
ed by United Nations' commit-
tees," she said.
"Of all the nations repre-
sented, Israel has been a cham-
pion of women's right to work,
day-care centers for their chil-
dren and a leader in legislation
closing the economic and so-
ciological gap between the
sexes which is so prevalent in
many countries today.
"Our sister organization in
Israel, Moetzet Hapoalot (Work-
ing Women's Council), serves
all Israeli womenArab and
I am sorely disappointed that
the women of developing coun-
tries could not transcend the
narrowness of political expedi-
entitled the "Declaration of
Mexico" was adopted over the
opposition of the United States
and Israel delegations. The
wide-ranging resolution called
for a change in global econom-
ics, urging the elimination of
colonialism, Zionism and apart-
heid. Pushed through commit-
tee by Third World and Soviet-
bloc countries, observers felt
that the lack of votes against
the resolution by many indus-
trialized countries was due to
their fear of Arab oil-producers
who were among the resolu-
tion's backers.
"I applaud the United States
stand," Mrs. Stein added.

act and unlike many represen-
tatives has taken a moral and
ethical position."
Pioneer Women works close-
ly with its sister organization in

the 12 other Pioneer Women
organizations around the world,
in maintaining a network of

programs for women, youth
and children of Israel.

Remove Bias Restrictions
Before U.S. Loans are Granted
WASHINGTON If the gov-
ernment of Syria is serious in
its recent efforts to obtain in-
creased American trade, in-
vestment and tourism, it should
remove the discriminatory re-
strictions currently enforced
on the 4,500 Jews still living in
Syria, a well known expert on
the Middle Bast told the House
Committee on International Re-
Dr. George E. Gruen, direc-
tor of Middle East Affairs for
the American Jewish Commit-
tee, in testimony before the
Special Subcommittee on Inves-
tigations, stated that despite
token actions to improve the
public image of Syria in the
United States, the Syrian gov-
ernment continues to impose
heavy restrictions on its Jew-
ish community.
SYRIAN JEWS, he said, are
restricted in their right to trav-
el, to attend universities, and
to sell or inherit property. The

"1 believe that the United
States should continue to seek
to improve relations with Syria,
but this must be a two-way
street," Dr. Gruen declared.
"IF THE Syrians wish in-
creased American trade, invest-
ment and tourism, as they say
they do, then it is manifestly in
their own self interest to do
something to convince the
American public that Syria is
a country governed by the rule
of law and not a police state
subject to the arbitrary whim
of the Muhabarat (intelligence
or secret police)."
Dr. Gruen emphasized that
Americans are concerned with
the rights ot Syrian Jews "as
a basic humanitarian issue, and
not as part of the Arab-Israel
IN DECLARING that "Syria
is the only Arab country that
totally refuses to allow its Jews
to emigrate," he pointed out
that the government's policy
was "inconsistent with Arab
practice, and indeed contradicts
the official Arab propaganda
line, which allegedly draws a
distinction between Israel,
which it opposes for political
reasons, and Jews, which it
respects as members of a
monotheistic faith."

A Worthwhile Warning
Albert Chernin, the newly-elected executive vice
chairman of the National Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council, issued a timely warning when he
urged the American Jewish community not to "over-
whelm itself with fears'."
Chernin was referring both to a fear of erosion in
American public opinion's support of Israel as well as
a fear of a deteriorating condition for American Jews
Chermin was not saying that Utopia has come for
American Jews. "A little paranoia is a realistic percep-
tion of Jewish history and essential to our survival," he
said. But, he warned, a "blind attitude" by American
Jews to their "hospital conditions" could lead to "a self-
fulfilling prophecy threatening our survival."
The new NJCRAC official was obviously referring
to fears expressed since the Yom Kippur War and the
Arab oil boycott of Jewish individuals and organiza-
tions that Jew are in real danger in the United States.
However, the polls that show most Americans sup-
port Israel and that the American people blamed the
oil shortage on the Arabs,

of State Henry Kissinger at Kissinger's vacation spot
in the Virgin Islands certainly underscored the amount
of pressure the Ford administration is applying on Israel
to withdraw from the Sinai, and largely on Egyptian

Our Nation's Fears
But all of this bears on America at large, not just
on the American Jewish community.
As we have already noted, the newly-elected execu-
tive vice president of the National Jewish Community
Rlations Advisory Council is on record as having warned
Jews not to be overwhelmed by fears that American
public opinion is swaying against both Israel and
American Jewry.
The point is that there is a GENERAL fear in
America today, not just a Jewish fear, about Arab inten-
tions in the Middle East.
It can not be denied that a good deal of this fear
is based on Arab oil policies.
But also a significant part of this has to do with the
nation's growing concern that a new war in the Middle
East will not find the U.S. involved militarily as it has
been in the past.
Agonizing Need for Peace
In the end, America today is in no mood for new
military adventures. Not even Israel's repeated assur-
ances that in the event of a new war, it would never
come to that, have proven effective.
This is why the network over the weekend were so
quick to report what has yet to occur. It was a mirror
of impatient public sentiment to still their fears.
But, along with Chernin, it is our hopeful view that
this impatience, these fears, do not express themselves
as hostility either toward American Jews or Israel.
They merely show what the TV reports showed
the agonizng American need for peace.

ALL OF this inspirational
erotica in the hearts and minds
of men has flown freely for
millenia in just about every
conceivable culture.
Women may have been, and
may still be enslaved, as the
modern women's libber would
have it, but there never was a
dearth of male sentiment some-
where on this dreary globe to
argue that the female is the
gentler sex.

Since women give life, they
would never be inclined to take
it. The Isaiah vision would be
fulfilled there would be war

Of course, when I ask who
has not, at one time or another,
wondered about this, I expose
myself to the wrath of, say, the
Germaine Greers and Kate
Milletts of the liberation move-
THEY WOULD argue that
such speculations are sexist,
male manufactured romantic
notions ostensibly designed to
enshrine womento put them
up on a pedestal and worship
their beauty, to protect them
from a cruel and hostile world,
to shield the life-giver from the
heartless life-taker.

It is in fact a disguise to en-
slave women, to exploit them as
housekeepers, servants, nurses,
scullery maids and, mainly, as
unpaid prostitutes.

side of the fence, either, and
well before women's liberation

Los Angeles Times Syndicate
NEW YORKWhy should the
news about John Rosselli bring
to my mind a poem by W. H.
Auden? John Rosselli is, of
course, the Mafia gangster, now
a grandfatherly figure, who ap-
peared before the Senate com-
mittee on the CIA with such
secrecy that the papers were
not sure the pictures they ran
were really of him.
Along with the late unlament-
ed Sam Giancana, he seems to
have worked on the Castro as-
sassination plot in the early
1960s, in a plan to poison Cas-
tro and his top two men, and
thus topple the regime.
FOR SOME reason it sent me
back to Auden's poem, called
"September 1, 1939," which
opens thus: "I sit in one of the
dives/ On 52nd Street/ As
the clever hopes expire/ Of a
low dishonest decade."
That is how Auden felt about
the '30s, which had inspired
his generation with such fire
and hope, and which expired
with a second world war. Simi-
lar lines could have been writ-
ten about the '60s, and doubt-
less will be written about the
70s as well.
What makes the lines espe-
cially poignant now is that the
shadow of Rosselli and Gian-
cana, and of the CIA operations
now being sifted, falls over the
Kennedy years in the early '60s
when so many points of light
seemed to be flashing over the
FOR ANYONE who wants to
review the events of those dec-
ades William Manchester's
massive 1,300-page book, "The
Glory and the Dream" (Little,
Brown) is a good starting point.
I have kept coming back to
it since its publication. There
are things to be said against it,
and the reviewers have said
themits prolix length, its
mountains of detail, its failure
often to discriminate between
the trivial and crucial, its lack
of any basic interpretive theme.
Every couple of generations
someone puts together an "Our
Times" chronicle.
ANYONE WHO has tried to
do any teaching which involves
some knowledge of what hap-
pened in America in the '30s,
'40s and '50s, even the '60s,
knows how innocent the stu-
dents are of it.
Their knowledge starts some-
where in the middle or late
'60s. If there were a paperback
version of the Manchester book
I would make it mandatory for
every high school and college
studentand for their teachers
as well.
Then we could start equally
from the same point, and fight
about our interpretations.
.MANCHESTER begins with
the Bonus Army, encamped in
Washington in 1932, and ends
with Nixon victorious in 1972,
facing the Watergate scandal.
It is scarcely a 40-year period
to give a title like "The Glory
and the Dream" to it. One could
call it equally "The Glory and
the Nightmare."
I say this because every gen-
eration has some one decade
which was crucial for it, and
which conditioned its outlook.
But what conditions us is not
only our hopes and dreams but
also our frustrations and disil-
In these crucial decades
something in each of us comes
to birth, and then we die a
little in each disillusionment.
For Auden and for C. Dtj
Lewis and Stephen SpendexJ
Spain was both hope and griej
and Munich was death.
ONE WAY of naming the de!
ades is. I suppose, by the VrtiM
dent who dominated them. Tha

The '30s were the decade i

Noiv Living in Argentina
VIENNA(JT A)A former

Simon Wiesenthal said here.

Kutschmann, 61, is now living
in Buenos Aires as an Argen-

Pedro Ricardo Olmo.
HE IS a leading executive of
Osram Argentina, a subsidiary
of the West German Osram
Electrical Company.
Kutschmann was responsible
for the execution of 20 Polish
univerity professors and 18 of
their relatives on July 4, 1941,
in the former Polish, now So-

This war crime had been at-
tributed to former West Ger-

Oberlaender, minister for dis-

to 1960, was sentenced to life
imprisonment in absentia by
an East German court in 1960.
He is now living in Bonn.

lieutenant in the German wehr-
macht, but the crime was com-
mitted by the SS," Wiesenthal
said. "The Wehrmacht had no
part in it and Oberlaender is
fully rehabilitated," he added.

Adolf Eichmann, said his repre-
sentative in Buenos Aires sub-

Mandel Says Reds Sensitive About Exits
Marvin Mandel of Maryland,
who was one of eight governors
who visited the Soviet Union in-
May, said that it must be im-
pressed upon the Soviet govern-
ment that the issue of Jewish
emigration is a human not a
political problem and that the
American people support the
right of Soviet Jews to leave
the USSR.
He said that President Ford
and Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger should make the
Soviet leaders aware that all
the people of this country are
concerned about the problem.
SPEAKING at a press con-
ference sponsored by the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry at the offices of the
American Jewish Congress,
Mandel said that the governors,
wfio were on an official State
Department-sponsored exchange
visit met with Soviet President
Nikolai V. Podgomy and other
Soviet officials and were treated
with extreme courtesy except
when the emigration issue was

peared to be much more sensi-
tive on this than they were
when he visited the USSR three
years ago.
The Russians said that there
was no problem and that the
issue was being raised by out-
Fuel Price Control Proviso
Should be Implemented
The Administration's energy
program, including recent in-
crease in the excise taxes on im-
ported petroleum and proposed
decontrol of domestic crude oil
prices, could cost 40,000 air-
line jobs, ground 400 airplanes
and curtail service to many
communities, an official of the
Air Transport Association of
America said this week.
Layoffs of 40,000 airline em-
ployees would mean that one
out of every seven men and
women in the industry would
lose their jobs.
"GROUNDING 400 airliners
would take out of service one
out of every five airline air-
craft," ha saia.
"The Administration's fuel
program, unless its impact is
alleviated, is likely to add an-
other $1.08 billion to the air-
lines' annual fuel bin. That fuel
bill has already soared too
drastically. The airlines fuel
costs in 1974 were $1 billion
over what they were in 1973,
despite airline conservation
measures that enabled the car-
riers to consume a billion gal-
lons less fuel in 1974 than in
the year before.
"Even before announcement
of the Administration's plans
for decontrol of oil prices, air-
line fuel costs continued to rise
in 1975by about $2 million a
day over what they were in
The official, who declined to
be quoted by name, noted that
"jet fuel, which cost 12 cents
a gallon in mid-1973, has more
than doubled in domestic op-
erations and has tripled in in-
ternational operations.
"IT WOULD rise to 44 cents
a gallon under the Administra-
tion's proposed program, and
this does not take into account
further increases in imported
crude oil costs now threatened
by the Organization of Petro-
leum Exporting Countries.
"Congress is now considering
new legislation on energy
policy. The House Interstate
and Foreign Commerce Com-
mittee has recommended pas-
sage of H.R. 7014, with an
amendment by Rep. Eckhardt

visions of existing law. The

approach to changing price
levels on domestic crude, there-
by establishing more reason-
able prices for domestic crude
than under the Administration's
program. The bill proposed by
the Committee should be en-

dependent on more than topography.
Mapam's political secretary, Naftali Feder, warned
that Israel must be very careful not to be maneuvered
into an open confrontation with the U.S. because an
understanding with the U.S.which means a continuing
arms supply, economic aid and political support is
more important to Israel than topography.
That view is apparently shared by Mapam Cabinet
ministers and by the faction's members in the Knesset
foreign affairs and defense committee.
Feder said various signs indicated it was possible
that Israel could retain a foothold on the eastern ap-
proaches to the strategic Sinai passes and therefore

Histadrut's Extraordinary-
Solidarity Conference Set
QUESTION: What does Hav-
dalah mean?
Hallandale, Fla.
ANSWER: Havdalah is a He-
brew word meaning distinction
or Separation (Havdalot pi.). It
reiers to the "blessing recited
at the termination of Sabbaths
and Festivals, in order to em-
phasize the distinction between
the sacred and the ordinary,
with regard to the Sabbath or
(Festival) that is departing,
and the ordinary weekday. Hav-
dalah is one of the most ancient
blessings: according to the Tal-
mud 'the men of the Great
Synagogue instituted blessings
and prayers, sancttfications and
Havdalot for Israel' (Ber. 33a)."
(Encyclopaedia Judaica vol. 7,
p. 1481)
The text of the blessing cere-
mony consists of the following:
First there is an introductory
recitation of a paragraph, the
beginning of which is "Behold,
God is my salvation; I will
trust, and I will not be afraid;
. (Isaiah 12:2, 3.).
This is followed by four
blessings. The first blessing is
over a cup of wine. This bless-
ing is made in honor of the
holiness of the day.
The cup of wine is allowed
.to overflow in order to symbol-
ize the abundance of divine
blessing to which Israel looks
forward during the coming
It is also customary to dip a
finger in the wine and to pass
it before the eyes as an expres-
sion of love for the divine com-
mandments. It probably refers
to "The commandment of the
Lord is pure, enlightening the
eyes." (Psalms 19:9)
The second blessing is made
over a box containing spices.
The spices are smelled and
passed around to the others
present. The purpose of this
blessing is to symbolize the
fragrance of the departing of
the Sabbath, and that its fra-
grance should linger longer aft-
er the Sabbath is over.
should linger longer after the
Sabbath is over.
Throughout the centuries, art-
ists and craftsmen created spice
boxes in various sizes shapes
and forms. Many of them in the
form of a tower were covered
with delicate filigree work,
studded with semi precious
stones and were also adorned
with enamel plaques depicting
scenes from the bible.
"Spice boxes were also made
in many other forms, such as
animals, fish, birds, flowers and
fruit, and even windmills." (En-
cyclopaedia Judaica Vol. 7, p.
1482, 1489)
Following World War II in the
United States as well as in Is-
rael eminent artists have de-
signed and executed spice boxes
in a contemporary manner.
The third blessing of this
service is made over a candle.
The Havdalah candle must be
made with at least two wicks.
Lsually it is made with several
intertwined thin candles so that
several wicks burn at the same
Tne blessing uses the phrase
Borey Meore Ha-Esh." Bless-
ed be the Creator of Lights of
"re. The Rabbis stated that
since this blessing is in the
plural form for lights, therefore
at least two wicks should burn.
The blessing over the light
s to mind the fact that light
was brought into existence at
me beginning of the week.
aome sources attribute the
messing over the lights to the
'ouowing interpretation. Fire
was left uncreated when the
Sabbath set in. But after the
close of the Sabbath, God en-
dowed man with wisdom to
make fire. "Man then took two
stones, and by rubbing them to-
gether produced fire ." (Trac-
tate Pesachim 54a)
Another interpretation for
this blessing is found in the
Jewish Catalog p. 113.
"The light of the candle is
the symbol of the divine in
man. The Ix>rd is our Light and
our Redeemer. Light brings the
Shabbat to us and it ushers out
the rest and peace of Shabbat.
"Fire is the symbol of civili-
zation, of man's conquest of the
natural forces. Making a fire is
our first act of creation after
Shabbat. The Midrash states
that fire was created on the first
Saturday night. Fire is a neutral
element; it can be used for con-
structive or destructive pur-
poses. Man has the power to
make fire and to use it as he
sees fit. Therefore, fire also
symbolizes the coming week:
the week i< in our hands to do
with as we wish."
The fourth and final blessing
is to "Our God King of the uni-
verse who maketh a distinction
between holy and profane, be-
tween light and darkness .
There are several other dis-
tinctions and many variations
for this last blessing.
Following the Havdalah serv-
ice it is customary to chant
special hvmns, the best known
being the Song of Elijah the I
It is interesting to note that
the Sabbath is ushered in with j
the lighting of the candles about
a half hour before the first
stars appear, whereas the Hav-
dalah service begins approx-
imately a half hour after the |
first stars appear.
This indicates the fact that
we are ;ger to usher in and
welcome the Sabbath, whereas
we are reluctant to part with it.

Samuel Ha-Nagid: Rabbi,
Poet, Statesman, General
Beth David South
Could you imagine a Jewish
president of the United States?
Well, maybe.
BAt, could you imagine a
Jewish president of the United
States who would put on Tefillin
and daven each morning, eat
only' kosher food, observe Shab-
bat and the other mitzvot of
Halachic Judaism, write He-
brew poetry and books on He-
brew grammar and even be the
author of an introduction to the
Talma*} in Hebrew?
Now, that's another story!
Would you believe that there
was-such a head of statethat
he lived in Spain almost 1,000
years ago, that his poetry still
survives and that his "Introduc-
tion to the Talmud" is found at
the' beginning of every copy of
the Talmud in use today?
His name was Samuel, the
son.-of Joseph. In Arabic, he
was*caHed Samuel ibn Nagdela.
But' to Jews, he was known as

of Granada, General of its
armies'and, for a number of
years, for all intent and pur-
poses King of that Arab mon-
Samuel was an extraordinary
man. but he also lived in extra-
ordinary times.
Spain was ruled by Arab-Mos-
lems called Moors. The Moors,
like-many other Moslems, saw a
great deal of similarity between
their religion and Judaism. Both
believed uncompromisingly in
pure monotheism; both were
concerned not only with a set
of beliefs, but a total way of
life; both had a Written and
Oral Law that explained that
way of life, and both recognized
the importance of scholarship
in secular as well as religious
realms in order to make life
more pleasant and more mean-
There was a great deal of
mutual respect between Mos-
lems and Jews. The latter were
not only permitted, but en-
couraged by the Moslems to live
by the Laws of the Torah.
In the middle of the 10th
century the Caliph (Moslem
ruler) appointed a Jew, Hasdai
ibn Shaprut, as his personal
physician. He used his influence
and wealth to found a Yeshiva

Our Rabbis' Views
No Vacation From God?
I believe that synagogues truly take a vacation from God
durtag the summer months. With the spiritual leaders on well-
deserved vacations, and lay leadership as well, it becomes diffi-
cult to introduce a positive summer program.
However, a synagogue with a day camp program can organize
Jewish summer living for campers. Stimulating discussions, He-
brew songs, opening and closing prayers, can stress the true
beauty of our Torah and permeate the atmosphere with the spirit
of our faith generally, to create a positive Jewish atmosphere in
which Jewish observance is woven into the fabric of Jewish
living. Torah-living can be fun, recreational and enjoyable.
Judaism is not an austere religion, and joy and enthusiasm
can be imbued within the child at this time. The rabbi should
become an integral part of the summer camp program when he
is in the city.
Students in the Hebrew School should also receive remedial
classes to prepare them to enter their regular sessions in Sep-
tember. Here is a grand opportunity for the weaker, less motivated
children to receive special training during the so-called leisure
summer months.
Summer weekend retreats for the laymen have also proven
to be quite successful in various communities. This affords the
lay leadership an opportunity to discuss synagogue problems and
future plans in a relaxed vacation atmosphere instead of around
the Board Room table. A program of study can also be included
during these week-end retreats.
Upon the return of the rabbi from his vacation, he should also
encourage his membership to take advantage of the little extra
time that he has during the summer months for counselling and
In other words, summer months need not be lean and arid

most cultured and highly edu-
cated center of Jewish life in
the world. Almost every Jew
was conversant with secular
knowledge, Jewish Law, Hebrew
grammar and poetry.
This was the environment in-
to which Samuel was born in
Cordova in 933. As soon as he
was old enough, Samuel became
a student at the Yeshiva.
When civil war broke out
among the Arabs, Samuel fled
to Granada. We don't know ex-
actly how the future statesman
first came to the attention of
the Vizier of Granada. Legend
has it that he was a professional
scribe who used to write court
In any case, we do know that
the Vizier became so enamour-
ed of the young Samuel that be-
fore the Vizier died, he recom-
mended Samuel as his success-
or. The king soon appointed him
not only Vizier, but General of
the Armies.
Samuel had great political
power, but he never forgot his
Judaism with all the responsi-
bilities of bis position. He con-
tinued to find time for the study
of Torah.
As General he often sensed
in the enemy troops a certain
jealousy in seeing a Jew as
commander of the Armies of
Granada and he often expressed
this sentiment in his poetry.
But never did Samuel become
a bitter man or a vengeful war-
rior-statesman. He was too im-
bued with the teachings of the
Torah to lose the sense of com-
passion that Torah teaches.
One day, we are told, the king
heard an Arab curse Samuel.
The King ordered that the
man's tongue be cut out, but
the Vizier countermanded the
order. He spoke to the man and
found that he had suffered many
misfortunes in his life. He re-
alized that the curses were only
an expression of the poor man's
frustration. Instead of punish-
ing him, Samuel gave him ex-
pensive gifts and sent him home
to his family.
Some time later, Samuel and
the King rode together in a
royal carriage. They spotted the
man walking in the street. He
looked up at them and shouted,
"Blessed be our King and his
noble Vizier."
When the King asked Samuel
why he had not cut out the
man's tongue as he had com-
manded, Samuel replied, "I did
exactly as you ordered. You
ordered that this man's wicked
tongue be removed. I have done
so, and now he has a kind
tongue in its place."
When the King died, his son
took over. But the latter was a
playboy who did not live up to
his responsibilities as head of
While the young man occu-
pied the throne as a figurehead,

da, as he continued to study

Hebrew grammar and compose

What is the status of
atomic research in Israel?
Development of atomic
energy in Israel was initiated
even before the end of the War
of Independence (1948-49), and
by the late 1960s research and
development in all fields of
atomic energy represented one
of the major national research
According to the authoritative
Encyclopaedia Judaica, the ini-
tial phase of atomic energy de-
velopment in Israel consisted of
two enterprises. The first was a
survey of the natural resources
of the country, particularly with
respect to the nuclear raw ma-
terials uranium and thorium.
Only low-grade deposits, pri-
marily associated with phos-
phate rocks, were located.
The second enterprise was the
initiation of a training program
to provide the necessary scien-
tific and technical staff for pos-
sible application of atomic
energy to the national economy.
The next phase was the estab-
lishment of the Israel Atomic
Energy Commission in 1952. The
members of the commission in-
clude men prominent in science,
technology, and industry, as
well as senior civil servants.
The first research center was
located in temporary quarters
near Rehovot, and later moved
to its present site at Sorek. The
major facility at the Sorek Re-
search Center is a 5 Mw swim-
ming-pool-type reactor acquired
with the assistance of the U.S.
under the 1955 Atoms for Peace
Program, says the Encyclopae-
dia Judaica. This reactor be-
came operational in 1960. Other
facilities at Sorek include hot
laboratories, and research lab-
oratories for physics and chem-
istry, as well as health-physics,
electronics and mechanical
services. A Radioisotope Train-
ing Center, a joint Weizmann
Institute Israel Atomic Energy
Commission venture, was also
established at Sorek to provide
basic training in the techniques
and applications of radioac-

there include a 24 Mw natural-
uranium heavy-water reactor
with extensive experimental fa-
cilities. In addition, the center
has hot laboratories, and engi-
neering, chemical, and physical

The aim of the research and
development program, the Ju-
daica reports, is to acquire the
technology and fundamental
knowledge of nuclear science
and to apply these as early as
possible to the advancement of
the country.

Senate Pulls U. S. Out of ILO
-The House of Represen-

from participation in the In-
ternational Labor Organiza-
because the ILO gave

ganization status in that

In observer.
Supporting the position of
tie AFL-CIO, the House vot-
ld to delete from appropria-
tions to the State Depart-
nent the funds to pay into
he ILO. The cutoff is el-
ective as of last June 12.
Rep. John Slack (D., W. Va.)
Jand John Murtha (D., Pa.) led
i the fight to delete the funds.
[They were opposed by Reps. El-
[ford Cederberg (R., Mich) and
Millicent Fenwick (R., N.J.).
Slack, who introduced the
ieletion legislation, pointed out
that while observer status is
lion-voting and non-paying, it
permits the PLO representation
i ILO proceedings.
Slack pointed out that when
the ILO admitted the PLO, the
U.S. delegation, made up of
representatives of government,
labor and management walked
The labor group said it would
not return to that session. The
U.S. funds 23 percent of the
ILO budget.
THE HOUSE vote was 21-8,
less than a quorum. But since
no member raised the point of
the absence of a quorum or
entered an objection, the ILO
amendment was adopted.
Cederberg argued he has
"never been a real fan" of the
ILO, but Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger and others
in the State Department ex-
plained to him that suspending
U.S. funds to the ILO "at this
time when we are carrying out
these negotiations (in the Mid-
dle East) just adds another
problem that we really do not
need at this time."
Cederberg made much of Is-
rael's remaining in the ILO,
saying "the reason" is that the
Israelis "figure they can do
more good within the organiza-
tion rather than moving out-
Murtha said "Congress has to
exert itself" because the PLO
should be condemned "especial-
ly after allegedly participating
in the Munich massacre and
proudly displaying this type of
support for that type of action."
He said he hoped the House
action would not "upset the
delicate balance of negotiations
(in the Middle East) but for too
long we have delayed action
and allowed the State Depart-
ment to dictate to us what we
should do. We control the funds.
The only ability we have to
condemn this organization is by
cutting off the funds."
ASKED TO comment on the
House action, the State Depart-
ment said it "regrets" the action
since the ILO "is a highly use-
ful organization." Spokesman
Robert Anderson noted that the
U.S. had voted in the ILO
against observer status for the
The ILO. he observed, is for
government, worker and em-
ployer representatives, and the
PLO "has no government or
recognized worker or employer
groups" and "fias no business
to be taken up in the ILO."

During a meeting for pro-

Becker announced that a dem-

that in view of the city's eco-

funds for the ethnic programs
would have less drastic effects
than had the cuts been made

At the meeting, Becker also
announced that a suit would be
brought against the New York

distributes federal and state
funds for poverty areas.
He charged that CAP has
"systematically excluded" the
Jewish poor by the use of cer-
tain criteria for establishing

The conference concluded
ast week with a resolution con-
demning Zionism. What could
be more irrelevant or, indeed,

Of course, one should not

the anti-Zionist resolution is an
isurdity. Compare the status

land one is forced to ask in a
burst of bitter laughter; who is
condemning whom?
But the essential issue in the
end is that a women's confer-

UN-sponsored or not, couldn't
even come up with a resolution
condemning sexism.

In this unique and clownish
failure, the conference appears
to have shown itself to be what
the Greers and Milletts say of
women: that they are indeed
slaves of a male-dominated
world, parrots of their male
masters, incapable of thinking
and speaking for themselves.
In these two unrelated cir-
cumstances, Gandhi and the
women's conference, the myth
dies hard, but die it does, that
women are the gentler sex, that
they are the nurturers, that in
their hands the world would
know war no more.
IN FACT, women are very
much like men.
Very much a man himself,
Lord Byron once declared:
"Sweet is revenge especially
to women."
And the poetess, Letitia
Elizabeth Landon, who lived to
barely 36 years of age she
died in 1838was nevertheless;
wise enough to have surmised
about women that, "As beautiful
as woman's blush" is so is it
"As evanescent, too."

necessarily related to the nur-

different as in the past. In these
views, woman is suddenly more
hateful than man.

sad. but nevertheless it is true
that women can be as cruel,
bigoted and ignorant as the men

might declare it, what does it
matter? At Mexico City, who
cared about sexism? At Mexico

Women are equal, all right,

appointed or otherwise, may
once have said to the contrary.

Must Pledge No Discrimination
Hi Mi
NEW YORKAn Arab-spon-
sored bank that plans to open
soon in New York will be re-
quired to give a pledge of non-
discrimination before it re-
ceives a charter from the State
Banking Department, the Amer-
ican Jewish Congress was in-
formed this week by Ernest
Kohn, Acting Superintendent of
the Department.
In a letter to the Congress
and in a meeting with repre-
sentatives of the organization,
Acting Superintendent Kohn
voiced "the firm conviction of
this Department that discrimi-
natory practices or policies not
only would be inconsistent with
the anti-discrimination laws cur-
rently in effect but. are in-
compatible with the public serv-
ice function of banking institu-
tions in this state."
MR. KOHN wrote to the
American Jewish Congress in
response to a letter from Rabbi
Arthur Hertzberg, its national
four American banks were ap-
plying to the State Banking
Commission for permission to
establish a new financial institu-
tion to be known as the "United
Bank, Arab and French, New
The four American banks are
the Bankers Trust Company of
New York, First National Bank
of Chicago, Security Pacific
Bank of California and Texas
Commerce Bancshares of Hous-
ton, Texas.
More than 20 Arab banks and
several from Europe would re-
portedly be associated with the
American banks in the fmining
of UBAF-N.Y., and an estimated
40 per cent of the bank's initial
S25-million capital will corns
from Arab sources, aews re-
ports said.
HOWEVER, no formal appli-
cation from the United Bank
has been received, Kohn told
Phil Baum, associate executive
director of AJCongress, at a
meeting in John's office.
Baum was accompanied by
Gottlieb Hammer, the former
executive vice president of the
United Jewish Appeal who is
serving as a volunteer consult-
ant to the Congress in this mat-
In his letter to Acting Super-
intendent Kohn, Rabbi Hertz-
berg noted that "many Arab
commercial interests, especial-
ly within the financial com-
munity, have publicly an-
nounced their intention to carry
out the boycott objectives of
the Arab League."
Accordingly, he continued,
"we believe it appropriate that
your Department, as a precon-
dition to the issuance of a char-
ter, receive assurances that the
business affairs of this new
banking institution will be con-
ducted fully in conformity with
the letter and spirit of our laws
arid with the national policy of
this country as expressed both
in the statements of our Gov-
ernment and the enactments of
our Legislature."
IN REPLY, Acting Superin-
tendent Kohn wrote that "the
Banking Department has long
required that any banking or-
ganization making application
to this Department, whether
for a" branch, for a new bank I
or whatever, make a specific f
written pledge that in its opera- I
tion it will not discriminate in I
any manner on the basis of \
race, creed, color or national I
"We require that this assur- I
ance be given by all bank ap- I
plicants; we make no excep- ;
tions of any kind."

Israel Strikes at Terrorists in Lebanon
land, sea and air forces struck
at terrorist targets along the
southern Lebanese coastal strip
in a series of raids this week
that began shortly after mid-
night and continued until dawn.
All Israeli forces returned
safely to their bases after de-
stroying numerous terrorist
buildings, boats and vehicles
and inflicting an undisclosed
number of casualties on the ter-
gaged terrorists in close range
firefights, and others came un-
der terrorist artillery fire which
was silenced by Israeli artil-
lery. No Israeli casualties were
reported in any of the en-
The Israeli raids, which con-
centrated on the region north
and south of Tyre and on the
big Rashidiyeh refugee camp,
were apparently carried out in
retaliation for last Friday's ter-
rorist bombing in Jerusalem
that claimed the lives of 14
Jews and Arabs.
The terrorists struck back
during the forenoon hours with
volleys of Katyusha rocket fire

Haniqra border post on the Is-

ed down, and no one, including
United Nations observers, was
permitted to cross.
Shooting was heard in south-
ern Lebanon long after Israeli
forces had departed, apparent-
ly between terrorists and Leb-
anese Army regulars.
According to an army spokes-
man, Israeli infantry units
crossed into Lebanon shortly
after midnight and, at about
the same time, Israeli comman-
dos were landed on the Leba-
nese beaches north and south
of Tyre by navy craft which
shelled terrorist targets ashore.
Israel Air Force planes flew
over the target areas dropping
flares and later strafed terror-
ist strongholds as Israeli in-
fantry patrols systematically
demolished terrorist command
posts and buildings.
THE ISRAELI forces attacked
three targets in Tyre, two to

on the fringes of the Rashidiyeh
camp, and boats were destroyed

Workmen's Circle Celebrates 75th Anniversary of Good Works
iHE WORKMEN'S Circle, one of the oldest Jewish
organization in the United States, has started
[his week the celebration in New York of the 75
|eare of its existence.
The celebration will be observed in numerous
Ither communitiesfrom the Atlantic fo the Pacific
-where the Workmen's Circle' maintains branches.,
i-er since its foundation in 1900.
THE ORGANIZATION needs no introduction. It
has been rooted in American Jewish life for three
^generations. It was founded at the beginning of this
century when Jewish mass-immigration was at its
height- Originally established as a fraternal body,
he Workmen's Circle and the achievements it
It has followed the march of time and developed
Into a group with wider horizons. It is now part and
harcel of everything that takes place in American
Jewish communal life.
History of American Jewry cannot be written
now without giving the proper place to the role of
he Workmen's Circle and. the achievements it
leached during the years of its existence.

ITS ACTIVITIES are now no longer limited to
providing fraternal benefits to its tens of thousands
of members. It is now participating also in numerous
functions accelerating social progress in general.
The Workmen's Circle is today active also in
combatting bigotry. It supports legislative action in
the fields of housing, employment, health care, social
security, consumer protection. It is in the front row
among major Jewish organizations fighting for the
rights of Jews in the Soviet Union.
IT IS actively supporting Israel by having in-
vested $600,000 of its reserve funds in Israeli proj-
ects and by urging its huge membership to con-
tribute to the United Jewish Appeal and the His-
tradrut campaign as well as to buy Israel Bonds.
While continuing its traditional policy of pro-
viding fraternal benefits to its membersin the form

Workmen's Circle 'extinguishes itself 'anib with id
unique cultural program which includes the main-
taining of Jewish modern schools and summer
camps, a Yiddish Theater in New York, Jewish
choirs, organizing Jewish concerts and lectures
throughout the country, conducting Jewish festivals,
publishing Jewish books and magazines.
IT IS also closelv associated with the Jewish
Daily Forward, the only Jewish daily newspaper
this country and the largest Jewish daily newspaper
in the world.
One of the main achievements of the Workmen's
Circle is the building and mtaintaining of modern
homes for its aged members. At present it maintains
three such homes: the largest is located in New
York and accommodates 525 residents.

Single Fathers
Reject Assist
OFFICIAL of a Jewish community center has reported
I that interviews with a number of single-parent fathers
Huced little evidence that they wanted the kind of wide-
ting services being offered under Jewish communal aspects
kelp single-parent mothers cope with their problems.
JRona Small, program director at the Denver Jewish com-
kity center, reported she made her informal investigation
a Jewish Welfare Board consultation on single-parent
lies at which professionals from a wide variety of Jewish
nmunal agencies pondered the fact that current literature
ngle-parent families reflected "a total dearth of knowl-
f" about single-parent fathers and that family agency case-
and Jewish centers rosters "attest to the fact that this
is virtually absent" from such service agencies programs.
VT ONE of the "most productive" consultation sessions.
| Small reported in an issue of the JWB Circle, it was
Itulated" that such fathers could be assumed to need "a
fad of services from men's consciousness-raising groups to
aid and economic counseling, from child care and home-
er service for the fathers with permanent or temporary
lodv" of their children "to parent effectiveness training for
I Sunday or absent father."
|To test "these assumptions about appropriate services to
s-parent fathers." Ms. Small held a series of informal
views "with a cross-section" of such fathers who included
essional and blue collar workers, "one with permanent
Jy of offspring, most with liberal access rights but no

ed mother. All of the fathers Ms. Small interviewed were

degree of knowledge about the availability" of Jewish
nninal services "and categorically rejected both existing
ices and the postulated alternatives."

Mi single or married, could benefit from getting more in-
into their relations as parents through family counseling

/AY BACK in 1951 when the Arab League's
Arab Boycott Office set up the Arab
blacklist of companies with Jewish coloration,
the power of the petrodollar attracted little
attention. In the years since, however, Arab
oil income has shot geyser-high.
Evidence of this new economic leverage
abounds. Oil-producing Arab states are said to
have spent $11 billion in the U.S. in 1974 with
predictions of toppins $15 billion in 1975.
IT IS routine now for us to learn one day
that the Organization of Petroleum Exporting
Countries (OPEC) is thinking about trying,
through an ofter of money, to induce "Readers
Digest" to carry more articles flushed out with
Arab propaganda, and to read the next that
practically all that stands between an Arab
proposal to buy Madison Square Garden and
the consummation of that deal is the deter-
mination of the Garden's president, Alan
Cohen, not to be overwhelmed by Arab gold.
With the small and great engines of the
new technocracy thirsty for oil, the Arab states
studded with oil wells stand to add S400 billion
to their tills in the next 10 years.
OF ALL the Arabs' customers, the United
States itself appears the largest. And with our

fLUCY s- DAWIDOWICZ has written a work
of major importance. "The War Against
! the Jews. 1933-1945" (New York, Holt, Rine-
hart and Winston $15. '460 pp.) Is as complete
an account as can be desired of the Nazi cam-
paign to destroy Judaism and to make Europe
The author opens with a synopsis of Ger-
man anti-Semitism and a brief account of how
Hitter acquired his anti-Semitic biases. She
supplies the sequence of events and the meth-
ods by which he came to his "diabolically con-
ceived goals.
HITLER WAS neither a fool nor a dement-
ed creature any more than any person who
harbors a hatred against any of his'fellow-men.
The author relates, with proper historical ob-
jectivity, the modus operandi of the Holocaust.
She narrates the problems of the Jewish
communities, how the kehilla ended by Nazi
dictum and how the Judenrat was formed and
operated, how the various religious and secu-
lar institutions operated and the schisms that
continued despite the fact that calamity for all
was ever present, and how new institutions
came into being.
CHE DIARIES of Ringbloom. Kaplan and
everywhere for new capital, the oil-producing
countries, eager to harness their money to
American know-how, appear to have their fu-
ture guaranteed.
If these observations do not convince you
of the Rravity of the Arab threat, you might
want to try your hand at drawing up your own
set of conclusions. While you are busy at that,

FIRST OFF, President Ford in late Febru-
ary took steady aim at the most insidious as-
pect of the use of new Arab wealth: he asserted
that Arab blacklisting of Jews and Jewish
businesses will not be tolerated by Washing-
ton. Discrimination against Jews by private
companies or -government agencies wooing
Arab business interests is "totally contrary to
the American tradition and repugnant to
American principles," he said. And he follow-
ed his stern derrtfheiation with a call to look
into charges of such discrimination and to
institute appropriate action.
True, Deputy State Secretary Robert S.
Ingersoll Indicated little sympathy with the
Ford pronouncement when he publicly opposed
most Congressional proposals to curb Arab boy-
cotts and blacklisting But the wheels had be-
gun to move.
