$3.5 Million Campaign Goal Announced
Officers of the Jewish Feder-
ation of South Broward an-
nounced the 1976 Combined
h Appeal Israel Emer-
gency Fund Campaign goal of
53.5 million at the board of
directors meeting on Sept. 9.
Guest speaker Joel Breslau,
-n.' of twelve national United
ish Appeal chairmen and
man of UJA's "Operation
Vrg-ade" program told the
ip that he felt the goal is
a "double" one, based on the
index of growth in the South
Broward Community.
"$3Vi million is a reasonable
goal, necessary in terms of
overseas needs and local needs
to provide sen ices to the com-
munity," said Breslau.
Heading up t''e campaign
structure are Lewis E. Conn,
g meral campaign chairman,
and Karen Margulies. campaign
chairman. Women's Division.
Stone Confronts
Jewish Destiny
Howard Stone, director of
' verseas Operations for the
United Jewish Appeal, address-
ed 114 members of the South
broward Community at the
Young Leaders Council meeting
held at Temple Beth Shalom,
Sept. 11.
Opening his talk. Stone high-
lighted the giving of the Torah
on Mt. Sinai and the unanimous
response of the Jews, "we will
do and we will listen."
"As the Jews on Mt. Sinai,
you are together here this eve-
ning to do," Stone said, "and
you have committed yourselves
without knowing what it is
you will do.
"As young leaders you exem-
plify the responsibility the Jew-
ish people have had throughout
history, the responsibility of
survival, to carry forward the
teachings of the Torah.
"We are in a critical period
for Israel and the Jewish peo-
ple. Our dilemma is problematic
the survival of Israel. Each
of you have two choices; to
drop out, or to burn like a Jew
inside with pirit."
Continuing. Stone said pas-
sionately, "The essence of Ju-
daism is that every human be-
ing is precious. The Jewish
Federation demonstrates this by
caring for the old, the sick, the
needy, the young.
"Your willingness to accept
your chosenness implies respon-
sibility. \, Jews must take
care of our own."
The audience was still as he
concluded,' "Now it is your
turn." .. .
Mark Fried, president of
Young Leaders Council, inform-
ed the group of upcoming pro-
grams. Allen Pollack will be the
next guest speaker on Oct. 22.

Mexico City Gives Okay
To PLO Office Opening
MEXICO CITY (JTA) President Luis Eche-
verria ratified his promise given to Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasir Arafat to permit the PLO to
open an information office in Mexico's capital. The rati-
fication of his promise came during a meeting here with
a PLO delegation led by the head of its political depart-
ment, Farouk Kaddumi.
Echeverria originally made his promise to Arafat
vhen he met him during his Mideast trip last month
prior to visiting Israel. Meanwhile, the Haifa folklore
Ballet arrived here to present several performances.
The group was here as guest of President and Mrs.
Echeverria who invited them during their visit to Israel.

man, George Paley and Otto
Stieber; Metropolitan Division,

ment, Rep. Bella S. Abzug (D.,
N.Y.) said here she has been
receiving inquiries from women
who wtnt to volunteer for the
proposed American civilian
group of technicians to monitor
early-warning posts in the Si-
"It might be a good idea to
include women technicians in
the group because their pres-
ence would underscore the
peaceful goals of this mission,"
Congresswoman Abzug com-
SHE SAID among those seek-
ing to volunteer was a young
New York woman with an en-
gineering degree who speaks
Hebrew and Arabic and is a
student of Middle Eastern af-
fairs. In a letter to Rep. Abzug,
the applicant said:
"I have friends in both Is-
rael and Egypt, and I hope that
by taking an assignment in the
Sinai I could help all of them

WZO Says Lima
Resolve Anti-Jewish
JERUSALEM (JTA) The World Zionist Or-
ganization Executive, in a bitter statement, has con-
demned the anti-Zionist resolution passed by the non-
aligned conference at Lima as essentially anti-Jewish.
The Executive pledged to step up world-wide informa-
tion campaigns to fight the Arab-led effort to smear the
name and meaning of Zionism.
ZIONIST FEDERATION leaders in many countries
have been instructed to seek meetings with government
leaders to explain the sinister overtones of the Lima
rsolutions comparing Zionism to racism and fascism
and of similar resolutions passed by the International
Women's Year meeting earlier in Mexico City and at the
Organization of African Unity conference in Kampala,
"The activities (of the Arab extremists and the
PLO) at Lima were not merely anti-Zionist but
were part of a hate campaign against the entire Jewish
people and against ^dividual Jews everywhere," said a
statement read by acting chairman Leon Dulzin and
approved by the entire Executive. ________ _____
Auschwitz to French Cabinet
PARIS (JTA) Mme. Si-
mone Veil, France's Minister of
Health, is unusual in many
ways. She is the first and
only woman to reach Cabi-
net rank in France. She is the
only Jew with full ministerial
responsibilities. She is a former
Auschwitz inmate with the num-
ber 78651 tattooed on her fore-
Despite these facts of her
life, which some might consider
handicaps to high public office,
Mme. Veil has become France's
most popular political figure.
Recent public opinion polls
gave her a six percent edge
over Premier Jacques Chirac
and two percent over opposi-
tion leader Francois Mitterand.
IN AN exclusive interview
with the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency last week, before she
left for Israel on a five-day of-
ficial visit at the invitation of
the Israeli government, Mme.
Veil spoke about what it was
like to be a woman Cabinet
minister, a Jew with strong
sentimental ties to Israel and a
member of a government whose
attitude toward Israel, while
more friendly than in the re-
cent past, is still ambiguous to-
ward the Middle East and which
has recognized the Palestine
Liberation Organization as a
representative body.
Mme. Veil has been a fre-
quent visitor to Israel in "a pri-
vate capacity." Her three sons
have all visited Israel and have
studied Hebrew at Ulpanim
SHE JOINED the government
last summer after the Franco-
Israeli rift on the arms embar-
go was mended, although Is-
raeli diplomats and many Jew-
ish organizations in France are
still not happy with the govern-
ment's Mideast policy. The JTA
asked her if she felt more a
minister or more a Jew.
Mme. Veil: There is no, there
can be no such problem. I am
French and a member of the
French government. Emotional-
ly I feel close to Israel and to
Jerusalem both as a Jew and as
a former deportee but there
can be no question of a double
allegiance. Israel is something
special to me and to my family
but there is a clear distinctive
line between sentimental in-
volvement and concrete politi-
cal factors.
JTA: Today it might be easy
to reconcile sentiments and
reason, but a few years ago?
MME. VEIL: No, it is never
easy but it has to be done. I
remember a friend of mine in
my native city of Nice who was
an Italian married to a French-
man. When Italy invaded France
during the war, stabbing her in
the back, she, my friend, had to
choose her options and make
up her mind on what side she
was. It was not easy, but she
did it. I think she made the
right choice. The important

Israel Population
Set at 3.4 Million
JERUSALEM (JTA) Some 3,451.000 people pres-
ently res;de in Israel, the Central Bureau of Statistics an-
nounced on the eve of Rosh Hashonah. Some 2,921.000 of
these are Jews, and 530,000 non-Jews.
THE OVERALL population growth during 1974-75 was
2.1 percent, the Jewish population increased by 1.8 percent
(51,000), and the non-Jewish population increased by 3.7
percent (19,000 Moslems, Arab Christians and Druze).
The slow rise in the growth of Jewish population was
partly related to a drop by 48 percent of: the number of

The 6Yea9 of Technicians
The primary thing to be said for Congressional ap-
proval of U.S. civilian technicians stationed in the Sinai
is that they symbolize the Egyptian-Israeli interim agree-
ment as Soviet-"rein."
This is no small achievement in light of the' extent
to which the Ford administration, and the Nixon admin-
istration preceding It, have gone to pay homage to the
Russians at every opportunity.
Even in the matter Of the agreement itself, the U.S.
remained conspicuously absent not only at the signing
ceremony in Geneva, but at the first working session of
representatives of both the Israeli and Egyptian govern-
ments to work out details of its implementation.
In effect, the U.S. did not want to "insult" the
Soviets, who for their part, refused to be present because
they wanted to put the world on notice that they accept
"no responsibility" for the agreement as if anyone
had asked them to.
Why should they presume to accept responsibility
for it when the truth is that they have done everything
possible to sabotage it from the very beginning.
Yet so concerned about Soviet feelings is the Ford
administration, which of course takes its cues from
Secretary of State Kissinger, that it instructed U.S. rep-
resentatives to stay away from these sessions.
An Unnatural Dependence
Having said that Soviet absence is better than Soviet
presence, and that this is good enough reason for the
U.S. to approve the Sinai technicians conditions, we also
would like to suggest that those Israelis who are out-
spoken in their criticism of this condition have an ex-
cellent point.
Mainly, they are concerned that it paves the way
toward an unnatural Israeli dependence upon implied
American power in the matter of peace between Israel
and Egypt when it ought to be Israel that shoulders
that duty as a free and independent nation.
We agree. But our own reservations move in
another direction. |
We are concerned about the course of events should
the Egyptians decide to launch a strike against Israel
before the three years of peace to which they have
committed themselves have passed.
In the Way of Self-Defense
For their part, Egypt could care less about the
safety of several hundred American technicians. On the
other hand, Israel would have to care very much indeed.
The consequence might well be a hampering of Is-
raeli maneuverability in self-defense and an unnatural
advantage given to Egypt without America's quite mean-
ing to do that. Here at home, the feeling against the
Jewish community could, in the end, be disastrous.
Those who oppose the Sinai technicians conditio-.
to the interim accord are not inconsistent in their pro-
Israeli stance.
They are simply examining every conceivable fu-
ture possibility and, in this case, seeing things that
others have not yet thought to see.

IIARDLY a year ago, there
was Gerald Ford as Vice
President by the grace of Spiro
T. Agnew's criminality. Now.
some thirteen months later,
here is Gerald Ford as Presi-

No one but the people of

'iL, late svelte Valentino, with
the "chutzpah" of a "chamor,"
he is already beating the hust-
ings to tell us why he should
be President again.
AMONG THE million or so
reasons why he should not is a
radio interview he gave in St
Louis, Mo., the other day dur-
ing which he declared that "The
business of the presidency is
the people."
Like a knight m srfining ar

the realm who are arguing that
the President ought to restrict

him in Sacramento some two
weeks ago.
Without a doubt. Ford'i
words do have a certain self-
sacrificial splendor, but like the
rest of what he says* they are
empty rhetoric when stacked
up against his actions.
AT THE same time that he
was making this brave pro-
nouncement, the President was
just about to clamp down on
the people's right to know with
ail the fury the Presidential of-
fice wields these days.
At that very moment. Ford
was preparing to demand the
return of the classified docu-
ments sent to the House Com-
mittee on Intelligence for its into the CIA.
The committee had just made
public the CIA's incredible
bungling of intelligence data on

zation about the field of presi-
dential candidates that most
of them are trying to recapture
some past glory, either in some-
one else's life or their own.
I have been doing some can-
didate watching. In recent
weeks a number of candidates
have come seeking support in
the Hamptons on Long Island,
and I have listened to three of
ern liberal who has been a gov-
ernor (North Carolina) and is
now a university president
(.Duke). The last Democratic
President to fill both roles was
Woodrow Wilson, who was also
a Southerner.
Sanford lacks both Wilson's
arrogance and his intense intel-
lectual vision, nor does he
strikes us now as Wilson did
in his own time as the man
for our moment.
Lloyd Bentsen dreams not of
Wilson but of Lyndon Johnson.
He, too, is a Texan, a centrist
Democrat, a legislator, a can-do
man, a political man. His em-
phasis is on hard bread-and-
butter issues. But where LBJ
aiways seemed larger than life,

that it has vanished, never to

pus travels, he no longer stirs

antipolitician and wanting the

But instead of the hour
ng for his ideas final'.;.-,
time seems wholly to have by-
passed him and left him with
his fantasy world.
I FOLLOWED Sargent Shriver
in his Peace Corps and Paris
Embassy days. He has to be
distinguished from his associa-
tions. He is not Gsorge Mc-
Govern, although he ran with
him in 1972. He is not a Ken-
nedy, although he is related to
them, and doubtless dreams of
emuiatine Johr Kennedy.
He is very much himself. Yet
it is hard to oelieve (as he told
me once in Paris) that he is
under a star of destiny that will
carry him to the Presidency.
George Wallace's dream is
that he can pick up where he
left off when he was shot in
1972, and that nothing has hap-
pened since.
Like one of those unused
clocks in a musty house, which
always reads 4:30, George Wal-
lace has expected time to stand
still for him. Yet in fact it has
been cruel to him. It has in-
capacitated him for the most
strenuous office in the world.
It was made his championship
of the discontent of our time
WHEN I talked with him a
year ago in his governor's of-
fice at Montgomery, he asked
wryly why so many Democrats
(Sen. Ted Kennedy included)
were beating a bath to his door.
It isn't true any longer. He will
do well in the primaries but
won't get a convention accept-
ance for either place on the
After the McGovern catas-
trophe in 1972, both Ed Muskie
and Henry Jackson looked like
the better road not taken. But
history doesn't operate by
Emerson's law of compensation.
THE FEELING about Muskie
today is that a man who could
not take the pressure- of the
campaign won't tafce the pres-
sure of the Presidency.
Jackson dfMO^^at the
scales of histor^ justice would
swing his way, and"'for a time
. VfMttW
he looked like the lead contend-
er. But with all his knowledge
and ability, he got tangled in a
detente controversy with Secre-
tary of State Henry Kissinger,
which deepened the fears about
his Hawkishness, and history
lost him.
THERE REMAIN the three
t>emocrats who (along with
Wallace) are likely to fight it
out Hubert Humphrey, Ed-
ward Kennedy, Edmund (Jerry >
Brown. Humphrey is the vet-
eran who has been in all the
wars, seen all the battles, wept
for all the defeats, rejoiced at
all the victories.
He is a good post-Watergate
candidate because, if the Demo-
crats had worked for him just
a little harder in 1968, Nixon
would have never reached the
White House.
He calls himself a "utility in-
fielder," but his dream is that
history is inexhaustible, and
that after so many failed chanc-
es it will give him this last one.
President Ford thinks his op-
ponent will be Humphrey.
KENNEDY IS far in the lead
and will dominate the conven-
tion. His dream is that he will
live out the dreams of his
brothers and escape their night-
He is keeping his options
open, but he will have to deal
seriously witn the Chappaquid-
dick shadow before he caH be
nominated, or the election will
be messv. If Humphrey and
Kennedy get into a stalemate,
with Wallace contributing to
it, Jerry Brown may be a vi-
able candidate.
He comes from the right
state, has no past history to P"
press him or past enemies to
trip him. and his wry antipoliti-
cian style fits into the na-
tion's mood.

Kit that's what rnppened re-
cently to Rabbi Bertram \V.
A work!- renowned Jewish his-
t<> im. Rabbi Kom was recently
promoted to Rear Admiral in
the Naval Reserve the first
Jewish chaplain in the history
of the Nations armed forces to
achieve flag rank.
AS A civilian. Rabbi Korn is
Senior Rabbi at the Reform
Congregation Keneseth Israel.

he is Senior Chaplain for more
than 600 Naval reserve chap-
Rabbi Korn is the author of
12 books on American Jewish
history and a prominent mem-
ber of the Jewish Welfare
Board (JWB). Nonetheless, he
feels as deep a sense of obli-
gation to his military duties as
to his civilian work.
MY REASONS for maintain-
ing ties with the Navy are two-;
fold." Rabbi Korn said recent-
ly. "First, in a time of crisis, j
such as a battle situation. I can I
be of service to people of all
faiths who really need my help.
and. secondly. I guess I'm just
plain patriotic
The Rabbi's selection for ad-'
miral was a surprise. "I honest-
ly did not expect it." Rabbijl
Korn said.
"My congregation knew of the
selection hot ore I did. I left a
bowd meeting to take a phone;
call from Washington and rcij
turned to shouts of 'MazeltovJ
Admiral' ad champagne."
A NAVY chaplain in World
War II. Rabbi Korn served at
Navy and Marine Corps bases]
in California before assignment;
to the CMna Theater with the
1st and 6th Marine Division.
I'or six menths in 1946. he
was the only Jewish chaplain in i
North China. He was constantly |
on the move in the war-torn,
country "... living out of knap-
sack, and sleeping where I could
find cove.." Rabbi Korn said.
"I traveled regularly between
Peining, Ti?nsin and Tsingtao
giving religious guidance."
AS A chanlain in China, Rab-
bi Korn helped not only Jews.
but Catholics and Protestants,
as well.
"One of the most gratifying
aspects of being a military chap-
lain is The opportunity -to ain
first hand knowledge of other
faiths," the Raboi said.
"I have close companionship
with Catholic priests and Prot-
estant ministers and have learn-
ed the pride and problems of
their faiths. It's a learning ex-
perience that's hard to come by
as a civilian clergyman."
Senior Rabbi at the Keneseth
Israel synagogue for 25 years,
Rabbi Korn is a well known
member of the nationwide Jew-
ish community.

When Fisher was asked why
leaders of the American Jewish
community were so supportive
of the technicians white so
many in Israel were against it.
he replied; referring apparent-
ly to the interim agreement as
a whole, thai as in any demo-
cratic society, there are some
against it.
BUT HE said the Knesset's
overwhelming endorsement of
the accord indicated the ma-
jority feeling in Israel.
Fisher- maintained that the
pact was good for America and
good for Israel. He conceded
that there certainly, are risk*
involved but said that "one of
the great things" about the in-
terim accord is that there will
be time for further negotiations.

There was also no discussion
of any future negotiations on
the Golan Heights or the supply
of U.S. arms to Israel at the
meeting. Milter said the tech-

be resolved by a joint resolu-
tion in Congress in 10 days, to
be followed by the aid package
the Administration will submit.
Miller said the Jewish leaders
wished Ford well and express-
ed gratification over his escape
from an attempted assassina-
tion. They told him that pray-
ers for his welfare were offered
in synagogues during the Rosh
Hashonah services.
Milter said the issues of So-

? Ask Abe ?
Congregational Delegation To
Participate In 10-Day Mission
QUESTION: What is the back-
ground for the many stories
told about the naive inhabitants
"of Chelxn?
Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.
ANSWER: (.'helm is consider-
ed one of the oldest cities in
Poland, dating from the 12th
century. In 1765, the Jewish
community numbered about
1,500 and in 1929 approximate-
ly 15,000, almost half of the
town's population.
In addition to religious insti-
. tutions, the Jewish community
;of Chelm maintained an or-
'.phanage, an old age home, a
Yeshiva (Theological Seminary)
and a secondary school. During
the 1920's and 30's two Jewish
weeklies were published.
During the holocaust the en-
tire Jewish community was de-
ported for extermination; a
- small number of workers were
left behind in the town's pris-
on. The Germans also destroyed
all Jewish public buildings,
among them the 700 year old
synagogue. The town was lib-
erated on July 22, 1944. Only
a handful had survived.
According to the authorita-
tive Encyclopaedia Judaica
(Vol. 5. p. 373) the stories
about Chelm have a niche in
Jewish folklore and humor be-
cause of the reputed naivete of
the inhabitants.
In numerous stories, the
Council of Seven is depicted as
sitting seven days and seven
nights to solve problems gen-
erally involving questions of
theoretical and practical wis-
dom in which the "Chelmer" is
invariably expected to be out
of his depth.
It is impossible to determine
.when and how the stories about
Chelm and its inhabitants de-
veloped in Jewish folklore. In
.A Treasury of Jewish Folklore
by Nathan Ausubel, page 320,
he introduces the section of
Chelmer stories as follows:
"There is no body of hu-
morous folk literature more
widely disseminated among
Yiddish speaking Jews than the
stories about the fools (or
'sages' as they are scoffingly
called) of Chelm. There are, of
course, fools, and fools, but in
the Jewish folk-fancy the fools |
of Chelm represent the 'ne plus |
ultra' in simpletons. They have
even entered into the Yiddish
"When a Jew refers to a pre-
tentious foolish person, likely as
not he will say of him ironical-
ly: 'Just look at him a reg-
ular Chelmer chochem (wise
man of Chelm)'."
"What is Chelm? It is a real
town in Poland, like Gotham in
England and Schildburg in Ger-
many. These three towns have
one thing in common for
some unaccountable reason
they were elected in irreverent
folklore to serve as the centers
of all innocent stupidity.
"The historical origin of the
foolish stories about the inhabi-
tants of all three places is close-
ly linked. Which of them came
first chronologically is like de-
bating which came first the
chicken or the egg. However,
we do know one fact, that the
tales about the fools of Schild-
burg were translated in 1597
from the German into Yiddish,
and enjoyed enormous popular-
ity in central and eastern Eu-
The following are examples
of Chelm stories:
The rabbi of Chelm and one
of his Talmud students were
spending the night at the inn.
The student asked the servant
to wake him at dawn because
he was to take an early train.
The servant did so.
Not wishing to wake the rab-
bi, the student groped in die
dark for his clothes and, in
haste, he put on the long rab-
binical gabardine. He hurried
to the station, and as he enter-
ed the train, he was struck
dumb with amazement as he
looked at himself in the com-
partment mirror.
"What an idiot that servant
is!" he cried angrily. "I asked
him to wake me, instead he
went and woke the rabbi, and
now I'll miss my train!"
"Which is more important,
the sun or the moon?" a citi-
zen of Chelm asked his rabbi.
"The moon, of coarse," re-
plied the rabbi. "It shines at
night, when it is needed. The
sun shines only during the day,
when there is no need of it at
A sage of Chelm went bath-
ing in the lake and almost
drowned. When he raised an
outcry other swimmers came to
his rescue. As he was helped
out of the water he took a
solemn oath. "I swear never to
go into the water again until I
learn how to swim!"
The people of Chelm were
beset by worries. They worried
about finances, health and poli-
tics. To alleviate this situation
the Council of Seven called a
meeting of all the townsfolk.
A motion was duly made and
seconded to the effect that Yos-
sel, the cobbler, be retained by
the community as a whole, to
do its worrying, and that his
fee be one ruble per week.
The motion was about to
carry, all speeches having been
for the affirmative, when one
sage propounded the fatal ques-
tion: "If Yossel earned a ruble
a week, what would he have to
worry about?"

was recited for President Ford during Rosh Hashonah

the President narrowly escaped a possible assassination

The benediction, traditionally offered by a Jew who
averts disaster, was given by MosheLevi, an importer,

Thpse concrncd about the
community i future need onlv
look at statistics. Though even
sociologists admit problems in
cleaning data on Jews, when
religion is not an element enu-
merated in the official census
or other documentation.
THE RECENT conference of
the Jewish Historical Society of
England on Anglo Jewry in the
Victorian Age showed that the
community numbered 46,000
only in 1882. rising dramatic-
ally to 300,000 by 1914 due
to waves of immigration from
Poland and Russia Which main-
ly headed for the United States.
Most British Jews today de-
aceod from immigrants who
failed to make it to New York,
so the Board's researchers say.
Today, there are 410,000 Jews
in Britain, of whom 350.000 live
in Greater London. The smaller
provincial communities are
withering away, like Belfast or
.Sheffield with the brightest and
Mat talented drawn to London
or leaving England altogtther.
JUST AS American Jewry re-
flects the pluralism of Amer-
ican society, so the British com-
munity is as highly centralized
as the British establishment to
which many of its leaders be-
long. The representative com-
munal positions are replete
with titled men and women who
wore ennobled by the Queen at
the governments advice for
their service to both the gen-
eral and the Jewish community.
The Jewish contribution to
Britain is quite out of propor-
tion to the community's size,
whether in science, the arts,
the judiciary, the economy or
public life.
There are more than 40 Jew-
ish Members of Parliament, and
18 Jews are ir the government
at various levels. Thus, Harold

of the Duchy of Lancaster, is

which is sympathetic largely
due to Wilson's deep personal
conviction of many years stand-

cause. Yet the ambivalence to-
wards Israel and Jewish mat-
ters surfaces from time to time.
A MARKED example was that
the British delegation at the In-
ternational Women's Year Con-
ference in Mexico which ab-
stained on the "elimination of
Zionism" resolution, was headeH
by a Jewish MP. Millie Miller.

constituencies where Jews can
influence the vote.

The basic insecurity is there,
despite the general prosperity
and integration of the commu-
nity. One need only judge by
the intense pressure from or-
ganized Anglo Jewry on the
British government to amend
the Race Relations Act so as to
be able to prosecute anti-Jew-
ish incitement.
THE ACT was brought in to
protect Britain's two million
Black immigrants, with the
Jews reduced to the second
largest minority. But Jewish
antennae are always alert to
any likely threat.
Signs there are aplenty, the
emergence of the neo-Fasci=*
n itional front on a count n-\'-!e
basis, which is making small in-
roads at cior; j "is. especially
among poorer white areas ad=-

A most recent case highlight-
ing this ambivalence was the
furor evoked by the reburial in
Jerusalem of the two Stern
group men who killed Lord
Moyne in Cairo 30 years ago.

|| American Jews And Israelis
f Must Establish Dialogue

Temple Beth Sholom
Lake Worth
There is a fundamental risk
involved in discussing the rela-
tionship between Israel and the
Galut (Exile). The risk is that
Israel pays the price of life and
security, while the "Galut," at
least the Western Jewry, enjoy
the immunity.
We must, nevertheless, con-
front the issue. The relationship,
which is indispensable to our
common existence, will perish
without dialogue. Through mu-
tual, if anguished, encounters,
we might find a way to strong
and enduring alliance of body
and soul.
The highest consideration re-
quires open discourse, even if it
becomes harsh at times; efforts
to repress it are harmful. Jews
of the newer generation will not
be silenced by reminders that
Israel is paying the ultimate
price; they will either speak out
and in less than friendly man-
neror become alienated.
Same Galut Jews could argue
that their own fate is affected
by the way Israel is operating.
We in Galut will experience the
fallout o f anti-Semitism as a
consequence of Israel's struggle.
Long before the issue of 'Is-
rael-Galut relationship' began to
agitate us, history had already
decreed that we are a people
One People.
The initial premise on which
Israel Galut relations must be
established is that, even with
emergence of the State of Israel,
our besetting question is still
the Jewish problem.
Any effort to achieve ac-
commodation along the lines of
"they and we" rather than "I
and thou" of ''Israel vs. Galut"
rather than one people fighting
for its survival is bound to lead
to estrangement and growing
mutual peril.
Jewish survival becomes in-
creasingly questionable if we
permit a chasm to arise between
Israel and the Galut. The Galut
cannot sustain itself spiritually
alone without the most intimate
relationship with Israel.
Israel has given us "moral,
isiential strength." It has given
istential strength. It has given
us strength to live as Jews and
to labor on behalf of our fellow
Jews. It has revived our Jewish
consciousness and actually in-
tensified it
It is the rebirth of Israel that
has ignited the minds and hearts
of American Jews and Jews all
over the world who now want
to establish their connections
with their people's culture.
The State of Israel has given
the Jews pride in its achieve-
ments, but it must be followed
up by a continuation of a true
spirit of ommitment to the re-
ligious teachings to make it a
Jewish land, a home for a Jew
to feel proud of.
Israel cannot be a transplant of
a "Jewish Society of the Galut,"
but a creation of a "new Jewish
Society in Israel" where the
Secular and religious can both
work in one.
Salvation of the Galut Jewry,
and the theme of "One People"
can only be accomplished if we
commit ourselves to Judaism
and Israel recommits itself to
the teachings of the Bible for it
is the Holy Land, and it was
given to us as a Holy Land, and
it can only survive if it remains
a Holy Land.
For it is written "Nee Meet-
zeeyon Teyzey Torah, Udvar
Adonay Mee'Yrushalayeem. Out
of Zion shall corae Torah

G-d from Jerusalem."
\ Purification Or Politics?
By Rabbi Michael B. Eisenstat
Temple Judea
The argument over "Who is
a Jew?" continues to burn.
Within the ranks of the Reform
Rabbinate there has arisen con-
troversy since some of its
members have begun conver-
sion procedures "k'halacha,"
according tn Orthodox law.
One might have thought this
development would be greeted
with enthusiasm by the Ortho-
dox. After all, their stated con-
cern has been with the pres-
ervation of the Law and its
observance oy all who are or
would be Jewish. Such is not
the case.
Several rabbis, myself includ-
ed, attempting to institute
traditional conversion proced-
ures have found stumbling
blocks placed in our paths, not
by the would-be converts but by
the Orthodox Rabbinate.
I called a prominent Orthodox
rabbi recently, to arrange for a
young lady to undergo the rite
of Mikve. She had studied and
read deeply over the many
months under my direction and
that of a recognized Conserva-
tive Rabbi in our community.
At the conclusion of these
studies, I arranged for a "Beth
Din" to examine her knowledge
of Judaism, her motives, her
feeling for Judaism and the
Jewish people. We three Re-
form Rabbis were uniformly im-
pressed with her grasp of
Judaism and with her sincerity.
The Orthodox Rabbi stated
that in order for the young lady
to use the Mikve, she would
have to be re-examined by the
Orthodox Beth Din, which
would have to have full authori-
ty in the matter of her conver-
sion, and that I would have to
surrender all "authority" in the
; What is at stake here is fun-
damental to the unity of the
Jewish community. Is the
Orthodox Rabbinate concerned
with the preservation of the
"purity of the Jewish people"
and the Halachah it claims to
hold in reverence, or is it con-
cerned with establishing itself
as the religious "power broker"
among the various segments of
the local rabbinate and in coerc-
ing Jews and those who would
be Jews into its own mold by
abusive controls of community
I have spoken with many
rabbis, more traditional than I,
in our community and they
have told me that because of
the above abuses they no longer
direct persons to the Mikve,
but take them straightav/ to
the ocean for the purposes of
The Orthodox Rabbinate,
having forced the issue of con-
version "according to the Law,"
can serve no purpose by deny-
ing the person who would

Why does Judaism re-
quire the institution of a
synagogue, i.e., a sanctuary
especially built or designed
for use In prayer, etc.?
Some base this requirement
upon the commandment in the
Bible where Moses was ordered
to build the Tabernacle in the
wilderness where it is said
"They shall make a sanctuary
unto me" (Exodus 25:8).
Basing their opinion upon the
rest of the passage where the
Bible writes: "So that I might
dwell amongst them" some com-
mentaries state that the purpose
of the sanctuary was to make
it possible for man to feel the
presence of the Almighty.
Others say that the sanctuary
is to serve as a model and as
an example of what a man's
home and his total life should
be. teaching him that he should
experience the presence of the
Almighty everywhere and at all

What is Judaism's atti-
tude towards suicide?
The duty of preserving life,
including one's own, is one of
the paramount injunctions of
Judaism. The prohibition of
suicide is a national corollary
to this; and yet, the authorita-
tive Encyclopaedia Judaica re-
ports, it is nowhere explicitly
forbidden in the Talmud. Post-
talmudic authorities, however,
considered suicide a most hei-
nous sin, even worse than
murder. It was thought to be a
denial of the doctrines of re-
ward and punishment, the world
to come, and the sovereignty of
God, and the opinion was ex-
pressed that an individual's sui-
cide forfeits his portion in the
world to come. There is a dif-
ference, however, between ac-
tive suicide and letting oneself
be killed. Suicide is also sharply
to be differentiated from mar-
Four definite suicides are re-
corded in the Bible: Samson,
(Judg. 16:30) Saul and his arm-
bearer, (I Sam. 31:4-5) and
Ahithopbel (II Sam. 17:23). The
first I three are regarded as
"suicide under mitigated cir-
cumstances." so to speak. The
most' famous act of suicide in
Jewish history is the mass self-
immolation of the garrison of
Masada in 73 C.E. as reported
by Josephus (Wars, 7:320 ff).
It has been suggested that they
acted in accordance with their
interpretation of the halakhah
which included slavery and
subjection to a foreign power
as one Of those principles con-
cerning which one was enjoin-
ed "to be Pilled rather than
transgress." Other cases of sui-
cidesuch as the mass suicide
in York in 1190which were
motivated by either the desire
to avoid forced conversion or
fear, are considered to be acts
of martyrdom.
Only in late post-talmudic
times, the Encyclopaedia Judai-
ca says, were laws regarding
suicide formulated. No rites are
to be performed in honor of the
dead, but everything which ap-
pertains to respect for the
mourners is permitted. A dis-
tinction is made between suicide
while of sound mind to which
this and other restrictions ap-
ply, and suicide while of un-
sound mind, to which they do
not apply. Thus the suicide of
a minor is not regarded as culp-
Apart from exceptional cir-
cumstances, such as during the
Nazi persecution, the incidence
of suicides among Jews has
been small. The mass suicides
during the Middle Ages to avoid
forcible baptism are generally
regarded as martyrdom. The
self-immolation of Meir Fein-
stein and Moshe Barazani who
blew themselves to death in
prison in Jerusalem in 1947 on
the eve of their execution in
order to cheat the hangman, was
justified in analogy to Saul.
In Jewish Law a person de-
stroying himself is presumed to
do so without the necessary pre-
meditation whether from
pathological depression and not
being in possession of his men-
tal faculties or from "duress."
Duress includes not only com-
pulsion such as the necessity to
kill oneself rather than surren-
der to the enemy or violate
God's laws, but also the (sub-
jectively) reasonable despair ol
life or the identification with a
person who just died. The scope
of duress being as wide as it
is, the law will presume that a
man found dead from his own
hand took his life involuntarily
and without premeditation until
the contrary is proved, conclud-
es the Judaica.
Q. What is the "Jewish Agen-
cy" and what does it do?
A. The Jewish Agency, an
international, nongovernment
body, centered in Jerusalem, is
the executi"e and representa-
tive of the World Zionist Organ-
ization, whose aims are to assist
and encourage Jews throughout'
the world to help in the develop-
ment and settlement of Erez Is-
According to the authorita-
tive Encyclopaedia Judaica, the
term "Jewish Agency" first ap-
peared in Article Four of die
League of Nations Mandate for .
Palestine, which stipulated that
"an appropriate Jewish agency
shall be recognized as a public
body for the purpose of advis-
ing and cooperating with the
administration of Palestine in
such economic, social, and other
mattersee as may affect the es-
tablishment of the Jewish Na-
tional Home and the interest*
of the Jewish population in"
Palestine." The article went on
to lecognize the Zionist Organ-
ization as such an' agency "so
long as its organization and con-
stitution are in the opinion of
the Mandatory' appropriate.'' In-
deed the two were coterminous
from the time that tile Mandate
was ratified by the League
Council in July 1922 until the
enlarged Jewish Agency came
into being in August 1929. From
that date until the establishment
of the State of Israel, this body
played the principal role in the
relations between the National
Home and world Jewry on the
one hand and the Mandatory,
and other powers on the other. .
In May 1948 the Jewish Agen-
cy relinquished many of its
functions to the newly created
government of Israel, but con-
tinued to be responsible for im-
migration, land settlement,
youth work, and other activities
financed by voluntary Jewish
contributions from abroad, the
E/J reports.
On July 26, 1954 a formal
covenant was signed between
the Israel government and the
World Zionist Organization-Jew-
ish Agency, recognizing the lat-
ter as the representative of
wo il Jewry in relation to func-
tions carried out through the
following departments: immigra-
tion, absorption, agricultural
settlement, Youth Aliyah, eco-
nomic, organization, informa-
tion, external relations, youth
and He-Halutz, education and"
culture in the Diaspora, and '
later Torah education and cul-
ture in Diaspora.
In 1960 an American body
was created to supervise dis-
bursement in Israel of funds
raised by the United Jewish Ap-
peal, in compliance with U.S.
government regulations on tax-
deductible gifts to charitable
organizations. The new body
was named the Jewish Agency
for Israel, Inc. (changed to
United Israel Appeal, Inc. in
1966). Its board of directors was
composed in equal parts of or-
ganized Zionists. non-Zionists,
and persons drawn from both
camps who were active in fund
raising. The Jerusalem execu-
tive of the Acency was appoint-

Blacks Critical of Arab Tactics
NEW YORKTwo of the na-
tion's leading Black newspapers
were critical this week of Arab
proposals to expel Israel from
the UN General Assemby, the
American Jewish Congress re-
In an editorial, the Chicago
Daily Defender said: 'The Is-
lamic Foreign Ministers' Con-
ference calling for Israel's ex-
pulsion from the United Nations
was not only foolish and damag-
ing but would bring no credit
to the ministers themselves and
no benefits to Arab interests."
ON THE same day^Iuly 22
The Philadelphia Tribune de-
clared: "The UN has acted ir-
responsibly throughout the
Arab-Israeli crisis, but if they
become so outrageous as to vote
to expel Israel, it will 'be clear
that they have completely out-
lived their usefulness."
The Chicago Defender called
the Islamic Foreign Ministers'
resolution "a crude and emo-
tional gesture of contempt to-
ward the United Nations and a;
deliberately rude and provoca-
tive reply to Secretary of State,
Kissinger's speech appealing for [
a more constructive attitude by
the smaller members of the
world organisation.
"That the United States might
withdraw financial contribution
to the UN is an ominous con-
tingency that should not be
ruled out if the third world na-
tions go through with the reso-
lution to expel Israel," the De-
fender said, adding:
"WITHOUT U.S. membership,
financial support and influence,
the UN w.-iuld be an empty
The Defender, flagship of the
Sengstacke chain of papers, is
published daily with an audited
circulation of approximately
35,000. It is one of two Black
dailies in the U.S.
In its longer editorial, the
Philadelphia Tribune, asserting
that a vote to expel Israel would
be "an outrage and an injustice
of monstrous propo.tions," de-
"Most of the UN member na-
tions hardly come to that august
body with clean hands. Over
half the nations are military dic-
tatorships which do not have
even the most basic freedoms,
humane treatment of ordinary
citizens, or democratic princi-
ples in their own countries.
"Israel is hght years away
from both of these categories.
Yet no one has ever talked of
expelling any of these other
countries from the UN (except
for South Africa) while many
now talk of expelling Israel.
MANY OF the member na-
tions have engaged in the ruth-
less, cold blooded murder of
thousands of citizens or the im-
prisonment and torture of tens
or hundreds of thousands for
simply disagreeing with their
governments' policies. In this
category are Chile, Haiti, Brazil,
Uganda, Uruguay, the Soviet
Union, Indonesia, the Philip-
nines, South Africa, South
Korea, etc.
"Ma.ny others, such as Iran,
Paraguay, Nicaragua and Saudi
Arabia, have a tiny number of
citizens controlling enormous
wealth, while the overwhelming
majority of their fellow country-
men suffer from incredible pov-
erty, hunger or even starvation.
"IRONICALLY, the same land
of Israel which the UN now
talks of expelling was the crea-
tion of the UN in 1947. At that
time the UN voted to create a
Jewish state alongside a Pales-
tinian state on the West Bank
of the Jordan River. The Arab
nations refused to abide by the
UN resolution, however, and
fought a war (unsuccessfully)
to keep Israel from becoming a

"ingof those most in need of
its multiple services and total-
care protection.
Priority will go to ambulatory
men and women who are alone,
in modest circumstances and

residential section; applicants
will be considered on the basis
of their financial, psychological,
and social needs.
Mr. Zilbert urged those eli-

are ambulatory and can enjoy

Noting that there still remains
a long waiting list of those who
are not ambulatory and need
immediate entry to the nursing
care section, Mr. Zilbert stres-
sed, "Once you arc a resident
you can remain if you become
sick or bedridden and you will
have immediate access to the
home's extended care facility."
The president reminded that
the philosonhv of the 17-year-
old home is to help others. "The
fifth comm. ndment." he noted,
"call* unnn us in take care of
the aged, and we ire taught this
is a moral responsibility."
Mr. Zilbert added that the
home is designed not onlv to
provide protection and shelter
for its aged, but to add to the
quality of life and maintain each
resident's individual sense of
merit and dignity.
"Too many poor, sick and
homeless old people, live on
meager pensions in dismal
rooms with neither the strength
or sometimes bus fare to seek
medical attention, and these are
the persons who wiil receive
prioiity,' promised Mr. Zilbert.

this will not be necessary," and
the debate continued. Late in
the night, when the vote was
taken she had won and France

Simone Veil was born to an
assimilated Jewish middle class
family. Her father, Andre Ja-
cob, was an architect; her
mother Yvonne Steinmetz, a
chemist. Old friends recall that
the family was assimilated to
such a degree that her brother,
who was later to die at Ausch-

no Jewish holidays were ob-
In spite of their assimilation,
the family declared itself Jew-

days later. They were all de-

WM "Gates of Bronze," by Haim Hazaz,

the gree; might be better forgotten.
Tin book was written in 1923 while Hazaz

No tricks. No hidden charges.
But, boil it all down and
you've got three basic
tire types to consider.
Two. four or iometimes even more plies (or
layers) ol material cross under the tread at an
angle or bias to the center fine ol the tire. Generally
the cheapest tire to buy.
Similar to the bias tire with the addition of two
or more belts ol material that run around the tire
under the tread This combines a bias sidewall
with increased tread stability and improved
tread lite.
Offer the most desirable features Cords of
material run Irom sidewall to sidewall crossing the
tread at 90 degrees. Two or more belts of material
also run around the tire Price per tire is higher,
but cost per mile is lower.
Buying tires Is tough enough.
You almost need an engineer's education to
understand tire advertising these days. There
are bias and belted and radial types. F-78's
and FR-78's and 7.75's all of which fit the
same car. And nylon and rayon and polyester
and fiberglass and steel. And plies on plies.

The strongest radial is an all-steel radial.
The I.R.I, is the only all-steel radial
automobile tire.
Conventional, so-called steel radials. put steel
to work beneath the tread only. One or two
belts of steel run the circumference of the tire
and fabric or fiber cords are used radially
sidewall to sidewall The conventional steel
radial tire is only a steel-belled radial. This is
important in understanding the superiority of
an I.R.I. Ail-Steel Radial.
An exclusive design and engineering process
put more steel in the I.R.I, radial than in any
other automobile tire. Two layers or belts of
steel cables (30 per inch) make sure the I.R.I,
tread stays open for maximum road contact
in all kinds of weather. This also reduces
friction, which is the biggest single cause of
tire wear.
A third barrier of steel cables replaces the
fabric (polyester, fiberglass, etc) used in the
sidewalls of all other automobile tires. The
result is 100 per cent steel strength and
Rated Load Range D.
I.R.I. All-Steel Radials meet government stand-
ards equivalent to an eight-ply rating and it's
stamped on the side of every I.R.I, tire Most
passenger tires even steel-belted radials
earn only a B or four-ply rating. Load Range D
means an extra margin of strength and safety
for all vehicles, even the heaviest of luxury
automobiles, station wagons or pick-ups.
Improved steel cable design means extra
comfort, too.
The I.R.I. Ail-Steel Radial uses a specially
designed steel cable engineered exclusively for
us. Each cable is wound of seven strands of

three-filament wire That's a total of 21 strong
steel filaments in each cable. Yet. with all this
strength, the cable is as flexible as silk. The
result is a soft, luxurious ride.
The new year-'round tread.
A special computer-designed tread configura-
tion was developed to make maximum use
of the strength built into the I.R I. All-Steel
Radial. Now. the combination of steel and
tread design provides solid, road-holding
performance under all kinds of driving
conditions wet or dry, snow or summer heat.
The I.R.I, is an all-weather, all-year tire.
Why you haven't heard about I.R.I.
All-Steel Radials till now.
Compared with the giants of the tire industry,
I.R.I, is a relatively small company. We
are growing steadily on a market-by-market
plan now reaching your city. Five years
ago, we set out to produce a tire that was as
good as the finest imported tire available.
Because we had no conventional tire-making
equipment, we were free "to try anything.''
We did. And came up with a totally new idea
that produced a tire even better than the one
we had set out to make The I.R.I. All-Steel
Radial has been tested and re-tested. Subjected
to literally millions of miles of road-handling
experience. Now it's available here. Backed by
a 50,000-mile guarantee. Sold and serviced only
by proven leaders in the business.
Extra safety. Extra comfort. Extra miles.
The finest tire you can buy. The I.R.I.
All-Steel Radial.
