Two Views of War and Peace

NEW YORK (JTA) Israeli De-
fense Minister Shimon Peres believes that
"time is in favor of peace, not war."
Speaking to a group of 200 Israel Bond
leaders at a reception at the Waldorf-
Astoria, where $2.3 million in Israel Bonds
was sold. Peres predicted that "in ten to
fifteen years peace will come" in the
Middle East.
Peres cautioned that Israel must have
"the strength to negotiate, and we should
negotiate from strength. The stronger Is-

able to be forthcoming in negotiations."

New Pound Devaluation
Moved in Dead of Night
The Cabinet decreed a 10
percent devaluation of the
Pound and imposed a series
of new taxes and levies dur-
ing a six-hour special ses-
sion devoted to the nation's
economic plight.
The measures, intended to
reduce Israel's huge budget
deficit and combat inflation
by absorbing excess spend-
ing power, -were announced
before dawn Sttnday while
most of the nation was asleep
and banks and shops were
THE POUND now stands at
IL 7-$l compared to the IL 6.36-
Sl ratio of barely three weeks
ago when the Pound was re-
duced in value by 1.9 per cent.
That devaluation, on Sept. 9,
was ordered by a special min-
isterial committee created ear-
lier this year with the authority
to reduce the Pound at a rate
of up to 2 per cent every 30
days If necessarythe so-called
"creeping devaluation."
But Sunday night's action was
by the full Cabinet, indicating
that Israel's financial situation
was serious enough to warrant
more drastic measures.
Two ministers dissented vig-
orously. Minister-Without Port-
folio Gideon Hausner of the In-
dependent Liberal Party, re-
portedly voted against the de-
valuation and new taxes on
grounds that the government
had no right to squeeze the pub-
lic without taking steps to prune
its own spending.
Hillel, who heads the ministeri-
al committee on social improve-
ment, criticized the devaluation-
tax package for failing to com-
pensate the poorer sections of
the popuh.ce. It was not report-
ed how Hillel voted.
There was considerable criti-
cism in the press and elsewhere
over the almost clandestine
manner in which the Cabinet

Apology Accepted
WASHINGTON (JTA) Sen. Richard Stone
(D Fla.) said here that he has accepted a personal
aooloay from Florida businessman Jack Eckerd for in-
jecting a religious issue into the 1974 Senatorial cam-
paign in that state. ,
Eckerd the Republican candidate who was soundly
defeated by Stone, ran advertisements in Florida news-
papers on the eve of Election Day and on Election Day
itself noting that he was a Protestant and Stone a Jew_
THE B'NAI B'RITH Anti-Defamation League urged
President Ford last week not to appoint Eckerd to the
post of Administrator of the General Services Adminis-
tration for which he was reportedly being considered
George Bernstein, chairman of the ADLs Florida
regional board, said in a letter to the President that
Eckerd was "not fit to hold a top level position in our
government" because of his "obvious appeal to religious
prejudice in the last election campaign."
Terrorists Hit
Rabbi's Home
PARIS (JTA) Terrorists set off an explosion

No one was hurt, and property damage was slight.

Club Bias Here Ruled Violation
The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court
of Appeals ruled by a 2-1 vote
last week that Biscayne Bay
Yacht Club can no longer deny
membership on the basis of
race or religion.
In its 88-year-hmg history,
the club has not admitted a
single Jewish or Black appli-
In his defense before the
federal appellate court hearing'
in New Orleans, Henry Burnett,
attorney for the 250-memberj
yacht club, denied that the club \
was guilty of discrimination.
"BUT WE thought it was;
more than a coincidence that
they had never had a Black or
Jewish member since 1387,"
said Maurice Rosen, attorney
for Dai id Fincher, a Black Mi-
amian, and Harold S. Golden,
a 65-year-old retired business-
man here, both of whom charg-
ed in their action that they
wanted to become members of
the club but ware denied appli-
cation forms and told that mem-
bership was by sponsorship
"This thing has cost me nine
years of my life," said Golden
in happy response to the ruling
that upheld Miami Federal Dis-
trict Judge Norman C--jRoett-
ger's earlier order that the Bis-1
cayne Bay Yacht Club must
stop its discriminatory prac-
The dissenting vote in the
New Orleans decision was by
Judge James P. Coleman, who.
argued that "judges now be-
come ex-offldo managers of the
membership policies of all such
prtvmv clubs."
ACCORDING TO the decision,
the City of Miami has been a
silent partner in the yacht
club's prejudicial patterns. Mj
ami, it said, ''fostered the dub's
continued existence and pros-
perity by providing a lease es-
sential to the clubs operation."
The club bought its own land
at 2540 S. Bayshore Dr., in 1932.
Thirty years later, in 1962,
when Miami officially announc-
ed its ownership of bay bottom-
lanJ here, the club began pay-
ing 41 a tear to lease the bot-
tomland for its docks.
It was on that basis that
RoettMr ruled that Biscayne
Bay Yacht Chib is subject tx>
laws forbidding discrimination.

.ing's Comment
Martin Luther Ki
Could Have Been Written Today
EDITOR. Floridian-Shofar:
I have already gone on rec-
ord showing my appreciation
of your highlights of recent
news and sincerely trust that
your readers will follow suit.
In this connection, allow me
to comment on one particular
item written by the late Rev.
Martin Luther King. He stated
that "Israel is one of the great
outposts of democracy in the
world." Also. "Peace for Israel
meant ity and that secur-
r; ust be a reality."
He could have written
above today instead of j i
ago and I hope that our lead-
ers, particularly the young
ones, will bear it in mind. After
all. this wasn't quite the case
when the Rev. King was a liv-
ing leader.
There was a time, years ago
when I was writing a column
for a Jewish organization bul-
letin and quoted a statement
by King that would apply to
Jew and Gentile, black and
white. It created a lot of ill
feeling amongst the officers of
this organization as they felt it
just did not belong. Needless
to say. I gave up the job be-
cause I could not go along with
that kind of narrow thinking.
It is interesting to note that
a number of months later, the
Rev. King was the guest of

ORT's Membership Drive
Southeastern Florida Region of Women's American
ORT has played a major role in building the economic
acd social development of nations through vocational
education. Its goals will not be reached until every man
can help himself.
Over 5,000 women of the Southeastern Florida Re-
gion of the organization are dedicating themselves to-
ward the achievement of this end.
And they are taking note of the 23rd biennial con-
vention of ORT scheduled for New York on Oct. 26 to 30,
by which time their ranks must be enlarged by 600
new members.
Because of the urgent needs of Jewish people every-
where, and the growing demands of the ORT global net-
work, the organization's ongoing membership drive must
not cease.
i In the belief that "every woman in our society is a
potential member," the Southeast Florida Region hopes
to achieve its new membership goal by convention time.
Overlooking the Facts
Israel has in the last several weeks been castigated
by some in the Pentagon and elsewhere for seeking
ultra-sophisticated weapons from the United States,
even at the expense of America's own military capabil-
ity. The controversy has centered around Israel's re-
quest for the Pershing long-range ground-to-ground mis-
Critics have charged that to give Israel the Pershing
could tip the balance of power in the Middle East since
Israel could then hit Egyptian cities. Some have claimed
that there is a danger of Israel triggering a war since
the Pershbigs are capable of carrying nuclear warheads
and Israel reportedly has the ability to build nuclear
This overlooks both Israeli Defense Minister Shimon
Peres' statement in Washington that Israel will provide
.X guarantee not to use nuclear warheads and the Israeli
government's oft-repeated policy that it will not be the
first to introduce nuclear weapons in the Mideast.
Even more important, it overlooks the fact that the
Soviet Union has heavily armed Egypt, and more recent-
ly Syria, including missiles capable of reaching all of
Israel's population centers.

Bad Side of the Sinai Coin

The good news is that Presi-

merely an expression of regret

Shapp Enters Race
WASHINGTON (JTA) Gov. Milton Shapp of
Pennsylvania has announced that he will seek the
Democratic Party's Presidential nomination in 1976. He
is the first Jew in American history to formally declare
himself a major party candidate for the nation's highest
Asked by a reporter if his Jewishness will be a
factor, Tie replied, "No, I don't believe so. John F. Ken-
nedy broke the religious barrier." Shapp, 63, is serving
his second term as Governor of Pennsylvania, having
been reelected last year by a majority of more than
300,000 votes, the largest ever given a Democratic Gu-
bernatorial candidate in that state.
In connection with his Presidential aspirations, he
noted that Pennsylvania is much like a cross-section of
the United States.
"We have our Bible belts, blue collar areas a
mixture" like much of America. "People are not so con-
cerned about a candidate's religious background but his
understanding of problems," he said.
Although she holds dual citi-
zenship in France and Ger-
many, Mrs. Klarsfeld described
herself as a "daughter of the
German people, who shares
their heritage the humanist
heritage of Goethe, Schiller and
Beethoven, and the monstrous
heritage of Hitler, Himmler and
Eichmannand also their mor-
al responsibilities, due to the
death of millions caused by the
Germans thirty years ago."
"ALTHOUGH Germany is
currently divided into two
States, the German people as
a whole have a collective his-
toric and moral responsibility
that every German, whatver his
ideology, and especially the
younger generation, must carry
out," she said.
She listed three specific ac-
tions as inherent parts of that
"To refuse to entrust the
management of German politics
to former active Nazis;
"To refuse to permit the
rehabilitation of Nazi criminals,
who were among the worst, if
not the worst, in history;
"To fight actively against
anti-Semitism, to help the Jew-
ish people wherever they are
persecuted, and to stand always
on the side of the State of Is-
rael despite the economic and
political interests that the Arab
world represents for Germany."
MRS. KLARSFELD was espe-
cially vehement in her condem-

are "anti-Zionist" but not "anti-

"For centuries, during the
pogroms in Europe, the Jewish
people were told 'go back to
your country.' But they had no
country. Then one day they
began to rebuild the Jewish na-
tional home in Israel.
"Even so, when the Nazis
began their systematic exter-
mination of the Jewish people,
with so much active coopera-'
tion from most other European
countries, Jews were forbidden
to go back to Palestine where
their brothers were waiting to
welcome them.
sunk rather than being allowed
entry into their own State. And
now, today, when the Jewish
people have a viable State that
protects them, anti Semitism
fights intensively to destroy
that protection."
Genocidal activities against
Jews, such as were perpetrated
under Hitler, are not possible
today because of the existence
of Israel, Mrs. Klarsfeld main-
"This is why the destruction
of Israel is and will be the num-
ber one objective of anti-Semi-
tism," she said.
"Auschwitz was the negation
of the Jewish people and Israel
is the negation of Auschwitz,"
she declared.

Prisoners of Conscience
During the first month at
Vladimir Prison the prisoner
gets a restricted, lowered food
ration. He has no right to buy
anything in the prison stall or
to eat his own food, even if he
has any. In fact, the restricted
ration of food is a hunger tor-
ture it contains 800 calories
per day.
According to the words of
former prisoners of Vladimir
Prison, the constant feeling of
hunger during this first month
was always haunting them and
was so agonizing that it disturb-
ed their sleep at night. Some
prisoners catastrophically lose

prisoner gets permission to buy
food, tobacco and soap in the

sum of two rubles a month (!),

ter in two months.
After six months of this se-
vere regime, the prisoner is
transferred to the so-called
coraanon prison regime. Now he
has the right to walk an hour a
day, to write one letter a month,
and any food in the prison stall

The food is prepared of rot-
ten groats and potatoes, sour
rotten cabbage (sauerkraut). A
prisoner gets 1 lb. of bread and
half ounce of sugar a day.
In Vladimir Prison the pris-
oners are kept in concrete calls
from 30 to 10 or even 15
persons in a cell. A prisoner
can be put into a solitary cell
at the discretion of the prison
Confinement in the solitary
cell for a long time is an ago-
nizing torture. No less agoniz-
ing is the torture of being
transferred from a solitary oell
to a cell of criminal-sadists. The
administration often practices
this means of punishment.
All the prisoners are examin-
ed by a physician or a nurse
once every 10 days. In between
examinations, a prisoner may
ask the guard to call a doctor
if he is lee-linn intense pain.
Sometimes it is necessary to
repeat the request for a doctor
for a few days, as the guard
does not come to the cell after
having heard a request to bring
a doctor.
Sometimes the doctor or
nurse gives the prisoners medi-
cine as a formality, because.the
medicine is such that -it will
not ease the prisoners' pain.
All the complaints sent by
the prisoners to the local Pros-
ecutor's Office, to the Prosecu-
oriCeneral Rudenko, etc., are
"examined," i.e., read by the
camp's authorities, and if the'
camp administration considers
a complaint to be insulting or*

The camp administration de-
cides what kind of punishment
will be inflicted on a prisoner
for this or that complaint.
A prisoner held in the cell-
type prison is entitled to send
one letter per two months In
his letters, the prisoner is not
allowed to write his relatives
about his daily life, the food,
his time-table, his work, health,
about those around him, or
about medical aid.
Also, not all the letters sent
TO a prisoner are actually de-
livered to him, even if sent
registered. Someone from the
camp administration signs the
receipt for the letter, aad the
letter itself is not delivered to
the addressee.
An additional punishment
place is the punishment cell.
This is a half-dark cell with a
table fastened to the floor, small
stone poles which are vary un-
comfortable to sit on (they are
supposed to replace benches)
and a slop-pan.
There is net and should

no towels or soap.
The plank-beds are tamed
up and fastened to the walls
during; the day. The prisoner
is net allowed to recetve news-
papers, paper, pencil, cigaret-
tes, matches, books or letters.
The prisoner is- drawn d in
special clothes with no under-
wear. During the winter the
punishment cell is not heated.
The prisoner held in the
punishment cell receives food
every second day. One day he
receives hot water without su-
gar; the next day, in the morn-
ing the same as the day be-
fore; at lunch-timesoup from
rotten cabbage, three ounces of
porridge from left-over groats;

Littman Calls For Increased

wood, Florida.
Littman explained -that the
new Sinai agreement with Egypt
does- not mean that Israel now
has large quantities eef jnaney
to be spent an economic aid
because of funds Israel is ask-
ing of the United States. He
quoted Israel Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin's recent state-
ment which appeared in the
New York Times titled, "Bar-
rels of Money for Economic
Development ... A Dangerous
Delusion." which reads, "At
least 75 percent of the aid we
are asking from the United
States is meant to finance the
arms we need for our security.
The second element in the aid
is the compensation for Israel,
in money, so as to buy the fuel
we can no longer draw from
Abu Rodeis, which we shall
have to buy elsewhere.
So if anyone expects barrels
of money that can be spent on
economic development in Israel
as a result of the aid we are
asking from the United States,
he is. suffering from a danger-
ous delusion. .Israel needs Is- .
aael Beads more than ever to

vided for the development of
Israel's industries, agricultural
production and the expansion
of the country's export trade.
He said, "The Israel Bond
campaign in which we are cur-

turning point in Israel's history
when its people are shoulder-

ANSWER: Hatikvah is a He-
b ew .'id msaning "the hope.''
It is the official anthem of the
ist movement and the na-
. then of the State of written in He-
I is Id's by Naphtali Herz
probably in Jas&y, the
i ital oi Molda\ia. Imber. poet
a ithor 1856-19091 was
bcrn in Galicia and went on to
1 estine. It appeared under
the title of Tikvatanu (our
hope) in his first volume of
petms. Barkai (dawn) dated
Jtrusalem, 1884. Later the title
was changed to Hatikvah.
In 1882 Imber read the poem
to the farmers of Rishon le-Zion
who received it with enthu-
siasm. Soon afterwards Samuel
Cohen who had come to Pales-
line from Moldavia in 1878 set
the poem to a melody which is
based on a Moldavian-Ruma-
nian folk song.
Many changes have occurred
since the original text and early
foi M of the melody were sung.
Some of these have occurred
spontaneously while others
wt:e made either to modify the
text to contemporary opinion
or to achieve the Sephardic syl-
lable-stress instead of the old-
loshioned Anlikonari
According to the authorita-
tive Encyclopaedia Judaica. the
standard harmonization is the
one established in 1946 by the
Italian conductor Bernardino
Moiinari who orchestrated Ha-
tikvah for toe Israel Philhar-
monic Orcuesira. There is an-
other orchestration also current
made by Paul Ben Haim
Although Hatikvah was sung
at more than one Zionist Con-
gress from 1900 on, the formal
declaration of Hatikvah as the
official Zionist anthem was not
made until the 18th Zionist
Congress in Prague in 1933.
"Under the Mandate, Hatik-
vah was the unofficial anthem
b State on May 14.
ng by the assem-
bly at the opening of the cere-
mony and played by members
of the Palestine Symphony Or-
chestra at its conclusion. How-
Hatik\ah was not given
official status as a national an-
them by a proclamation of the
Knesset." (Encyclopaedia Ju-
daica. volume 7, p. 1472).
Following is the English text
of Hatikvah as it is sung today.
As long as deep in the heart
The soul of a Jew yearns
And toward the East
An eye looks to Zicn

The hope cf two thousand

First Jewish Settler Wrested Rights from Stuyvesant
This ts America's Bicentennial Year.
On July 4, 1976, the United States will
celebrate its 200th anniversary of inde-
To mark this historic occasion, The
Jewish Floridian herewith begins a regu-
lar series of Bicentennial features.
"FIRST CAME Jacob Barsimson"
tells the story of the first known Jewish
settler in New Amsterdam (Aug. 22, 1654).
During the weeks ahead, The Jewish
Floridian will be publishing the stories of
other Americans of the Jewish faith who
contributed to the great events preceding
and following the American Revolution,
and who later contributed to the building
of the nation.
[ARK TWAIN had a message of welcome
and promise for the straggling masses of
Jewish immigrants who had passed through
Ellis Island at the turn of the 20th Century.
"If statistics are right, Jews constitute one
per cent of the human race," the great author
"Properly, the Jew ought hardly to be
heard of (Yet) He is as prominent on the
planet as any other people. His contributions
to the world's list of great names in literature,
science, art, music, finance, medicine and ab-
struse learning are out of proportion to
the weakness of his numbers."
THESE WORDS were based on Twain's
knowledge of what Jewish people had achieved
in many different lands during two millennia
of world wide Diaspora, and especially in the
new land of America, dating from August 22,
1654 when the first known Jewish settler land-
Jacob Barsimson, first known Jewish set-
tler in America, wins concessions for Jews
from Peter Stuyvesant, governor of New
ed in New Amsterdam (then Dutch), later New
York (British).
The settler was Jacob Barsimson. a na-
tive of Holland. He was followed in September
by 23 other Jews who came by way of Brazil.
Barsimson was soon recognized as the Jewish
community leader. Thev had their problems.
Under Governor Peter Stuyvesant. the New
Amsterdam Jews enjoyed practically no citi-
zenship rights.
THEY COULD not engage in retail trade
or practice a handicraft, for instance. They
could not hold a public post or serve militia
duty, practice "their religion in a synagogue
or gathering."
Yet their tax bills were disproportionately
ligh. And when they first petitioned for the
right to purchase a burial plot, the request
was denied on the ground that "as yet there
was no need."
THROUGH THE perseverance and deter-
mination of such pioneers as Jacob Barsimson,
Asher Levy, Abraham deLucena, Jacob Cohen
Henricques, Salvador Dandrada, Joseph d'A-
costa and David Frera, full citizenship rights
were in due course won for the Jews of New
Amsterdam, rights which were continued when
the British wrested the colony from the Dutch
in August, 1664 and renamed it New York.
It must never be forgotten that this tiny
group of Jews laid the foundation of what was
to become here in the United States, the larg-
est Jewish community under one flag, the
strongest and freest in the 2,000 years that this
people had been dispersed all over the earth.
AT THAT time, there were some 300 Jews
in all of North America. During the next 122
years until 1776, their number had grown
eight or nine times to perhaps 2,700 in all
13 colonies with organized Jewish communities
in New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island.
North and South Carolina and Georgia.
The Jewish increase was small, of course,
;ompared with the 80 fold growth of the gen-
eral population- But uke the exiles to Babylon
in 586 BCE, the Jewish Americans from the
very' beginning made great contributions to
their new home land.

Busing Has Little
Effect on Life
Of Jewish Families
ing or pending court ordered
busing for public school integra-
tion in five cities has had little
effect on Jewish families with
school-age children there.
The five cities include two
where public demonstrations
and violence have occurred
Louisville, which has 8,500
Jews, and Boston with 180,000
THE OTHER three cities are
Pittsburgh with 45,000 Jews;
Wilmington, Del., with 8,500
Jews; and Detroit with 80,000
Alvin Kushner, executive di-
rector of the Jewish Community
Council of Metropolitan Detroit,
and Herman Brown, executive
director of the Jewish Commu-
nity Council of Greater Boston,
said that most Jews in those
two cities had moved to the
suburbs and were unaffected by
the school busing issue.
In Louisville, the situation
was similar although there was
some busing of Jewish children.
utive director of the community
relations committee of the
Louisville Jewish Community
Federation, said that all paro-
chial schools in Louisville, in-
cluding the Federation's com-
munity-sponsored Jewish day
schools, had taken public posi-
tions they would not accept
children to enable them to
aveid busing.
Prospects for substantial in-
volvement of Jewish children
in busing were reported in
Pittsburgh and Wilmington.
Jewish communal involvement
in the five cities has ranged
from active participation in of-
fering proposals for integration
plans to keeping a low Jewish
profile on the issue.
None of the five communities
reported any anti-Semitic re-
actions to public stands or ac-
tivities by the Federation agen-
cies on the integration-busing

GENEVA (JTA) Israel and Egypt have concluded
negotiations on the protocol implementing the Sinai dis-
engagement agreement. The head of the Egyptian delega-
tion, Gen. Taha el Magdoub, signed for his country, while
Israel's Mordechai Gazit and Gen. Herzl Shaffir only ini-
tialed the agreement for the time being.
It is believed that the agreement was to be signed by
Israel within a few days after the U.S. Congress approves
Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger's undertaking and
guarantees, and Egypt has given concrete proof of its good-
Department said that Israel's
initialing of the agreement is
"essentially a procedural ques-
tion" as far as the United States
is concerned and "not an ob-
stacle to implementation" of
the second-stage Sinai accord.
The agreement signed at the
Palais des Nations is believed
to consist of two parts: an of-
ficial protocol and secret claus-
es which take the form of a
"Chairman's Statement" made
by the conference's chairman,
UNTSO chief Ensio Siilasvuo,
behind closed doors-
The secret clause is believed
to cover such items as the
rights and the restrictions of
Egyptian civilians in the buffer
zone, which Egypt considers
sovereign territory.
The Egyptian delegation ada-
mantly refused to affix its sig-
nature to a document which
would curtail its rights on what
it declares to be "national soil."
THE SECRET clauses also re-
portedly cover Egyptian re-
strictions on resettlement of the
buffer zone and on the circula-
tion of Egyptian technicians and
civilians in that area.
The text of the protocol was
not made public, but confer-
ence sources say that it con-
tains far-reaching concessions
made by both sides.
Diplomatic circles say, how-
ever, that Israel, apparently
feeling the brunt of American
pressures, made the meet of
them, constantly giving "signs
of goodwill" throughout the
talks. The main Israeli conces-
sions, according to these sourc-
es, are:
Agreeing that all items
dealing with restrictions in the
buffer zone form a separate
agreement, not part of the pro-
tocol and apparently only
vaguely guaranteed by the
United States;
Allowing Egypt to station
armored carriers in the zones
of restricted armaments which
adjoin the buffer zone the
armored carriers arj manufac-
tured in the Soviet Union and
are equipped with powerful
guns which could have far
reaching effects in case of a
renewed conflict;
Permitting Egypt to station
more than the 200 policemen
which Israel first suggested in
the Abu Rodeis area.
IT IS believed that the pro-
tocol permits Egypt to station
some 800 "policemen" which
could actually be crack troops
or commandos. The main con-
cession was to permit Israel to
initial the agreement instead of
signing it.
Israeli sources point out that
the agreement, if carried out
faithfully by both sides, will not
only establish a period of sta-
bility and tranquility on Israel's
border with Egypt but will also
"neutralize" Egypt for some
It is unofficially reported that
Israel intends to evacuate its
troops from the disengagement
territories only at the end of
the five-month. period provided
by the basic agreement for the
Israeli withdrawal.
THIS FIVE-month period falls
at a time when pressures are
expected to increase on Israel
to negotiate with Syria, and
would ensure, these sources
say, Egypt's relative neutrality
in this process.
The five-mo* th lapse of time
does not apply, however, to the
Abu Rodeis area where Egyp-
tian technicians will arrive two
weeks after the count-down and
which Israel must leave within
six weeks from that date.

A Fascinating Person
.. Chaim Greenberg
Rabbi Emeritus,
Temple Beth Moshe
North Miami
Chaim Greenberg was born in
r. .-sarabia in the year 1889.
The world he was born into
was beginning to awaken from
its medieval lethargic slumber.
The rumblings which were later
to erupt into the Russian revo-
lution were Deginnina to be felt.
The Zionist movement was al-
ready agitating the great mass-
es of Russian Jewry.
Greenberg began his life as
a child prodigy. At the age of
17 he attracted considerable at-
tention as a correspondent cov-
ering the Zionist Congress. As
a result of the Bolshevist revo-
lution and its anti-Zionist poli-
cies, he had to leave Russia and
go to Berlin and later (in 1924)
came to America where he
ipent the remainder of his life.
In America GFeenberg became
the moving force in the Labor-
Zionist movement and attained
the peak of his creativity in the
i ::ds of literature, statesman-
ship and personal development.
1-he weekly Yiddisher Kemfer
and the monthly Jewish Fron-
tfor which he edited, reflected
riot only his impeccable high
level of literary activity, but his
aggressively passionate dedica-
tion to the Zionist movement.
The Talmid Chochom
He was in the fullest meaning
of the term a Talmid Chochom
a Scholar. His profound eru-
dition in every aspect of Jewish
intellectual life, in the Talmud
and its commentaries, its ethical
literature, its mysticism, and in
its later Hebrew and Yiddish
literature was phenomenal.
But Greenberg was too much
the universalist to be limited to
the Jewish world. He was a man
of great culture and an unusual
linguist and was stimulated by
the intellectual giants of other
cultures and nations. He could
not remain outside the main-
stroam of life and the great fer-
ment of ideas and movements
which agitated his age absorbed
his fertile mind and passionate
Greenberg was a Socialist, but
his penetrating insight into the
Russian revolution made him
rej'Vt that which other social-
ists saw in Soviet Russia as "the
wave of a glorious working fu-
ture"Soviet Communism.
He foresaw in the very be-
ginning the serious defects in
the Soviet system and the dan-
ger and threat it must ultimate-
ly become to free societies
Sincere Commitment Is
Our Primary Concern
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
In the Jewish Floridian of
Sept. 19, a Reform Rabbi takes
exception to his being excluded
from using the Mikveh for con-
version purposes. In his story,
he tells of arranging a Reform
"Beth Din" to examine a non-
Jewish lady with the intention
of converting her according to
He charges the Orthodox
Rabbinate with playing politics,
v.ith abusive control of a com-
munity institution and with
denying those who would ob-
serve the law access to the ap-
l>iopriate institution in which
to do so.
HIS COMPLAINT is valid only
to one who does not know what
Jewish Law requires from a
candidate for conversion. One
need only study Yevamoth 47,
Hechoroth 30, Maimonedes IB-
S'irei Biah 14 and Yoreh Deah
'?'-, to realize that becoming a
Jjw involves more than just the
external acts of circumcision
and ritual immersion in a Mik-
The primary concern should

Jj.l principles of faith and to the
observance of all the command-
il'Mra of the Torah without ex-
This includes belief in the
unity of God, the Divinity of
both the Written and the Oral
Torah and their unchanging va-
lidity, the eternity of the soul,
and reward and punishment in
the hereafter. The convert must
commit his or herself to the
full observance of the Sabbath
laws, the dietary laws, family
purity laws and all others gov-
erning personal conduct.
STUDY UNDER the direction
of those who themselves openly
deny many of the principles of
faith and who openly violate
many of the fundamental laws
is no valid ground for conver-
sion, according to Halachah.
Halachah does not allow the ex-
ternal acts of conversion to be
performed unless they are pre-
ceded by a sincere spiritual
Attempts to strengthen these
principles should not be mis-
construed as a play for political
power. What is at stake is fun-
damental to the integrity of a
Jewish community, the stead-
fastness of its faith and its unity
with generations past and gen-
erations to come.
While there have been
throughout history movements
that have whittled away at the
foundations of our faith, their
existences have always been
relatively short.
Tenacious holding to Jewish
principles of faith and Jewish
law is our link to the past and
our hope for the future.

Not Really A Secularist
The impression is often gain-
ed that because he was a So-
cialist and a Labor-Zionist,
Greenberg's inner world was
strictly secular- This is furthest
from the truth. One has to read
his essays on religion, death
and immortality, and there
stands revealed before us a man
with a deep religious orienta-
tion and strong religious con-
victions in its larger sense.
But it was not only the man
and his thoughts, the man and
his philosophy. He possessed a
brilliant gift of clothing his
thoughts in the most direct, im-
pressive and moving language.
Listening to him, as I was
privileged to on several occa-
sions, one imagined an Amos or
Jeremiah at once chastising his
people with the biting sarcasm
of his impassioned spirit and
then caressing them with the
soothing, lilting phrases of a
man passionately in love with
his people and stirred by its
inevitable destiny.
In his essay titled "Bank-
rupt" written in 1943 just as the
reports were beginning to come
out of what the Germans were
doing to our people in Maiden-
neck, Auschwitz and Treblinka,
Greenberg cried out at the si-
lence of American Jewry with
all the bitterness of his agoniz-
ed heart at the greatest outrage
in man's historv
There was also a sDark of
the great Chassidic Rab Laivi
Yitzchok of Berdichev in Chaim
Greenberg, which comes to fore
in his tragically beautiful essay
titled "Dust and Ashes" where
he takes G-d to task while the
holocaust was ravaging.
Chaim Greenberg died March
14, 1953 and we get a final look
at this brilliantly fascinating
We see him revealed in his
genuine humility and compas-
sionate nature in his last Will
and Testament, where he wrote:
"I hope that there will be no
speeches at ray funeral. A re-
ligious musical service will be
enough. One or two Psalms may
be recited or sung and a chap-
ter from Job may be read in the
original, in Yiddish or English.
"Fhere are a number of men
and women who brought the
light of their souls into ray life.
To each of them I send my deep
'There are also, no doubt,
men and women whom I hurt
and to whom I caused sorrow.
Of them I ask forgiveness. I
sinned not out of love of sin; I
was guilty out of weakness and
I did wrong without the intent
to do so."

Shall We Fight..,
Or Join Them?
By RABBI MORRIS SKOP, Temple Sholom, Pompano Beach
Something new and unusual is happening in our area which
has been arousing much discussion and controversy. New temples
and synagogues are springing up, like mushrooms, in even,- con-
dominium complex, subdivision and surrounding communities.
High Holy Days Services were held in Palm Aire. Deerfield Beach.
Boca Raton, Margate, Oriole Gardens, Tamarac and Century Vil-
Some of these groups will develop into full-grown, responsi-
ble congregations, with professional and trained and ordameA.
leadership. Others will operate only for the High Holy Days.
Some will have "retired" rabbis and cantors who will officiate
part-time. Others will close down after the Yomim Norayim and
the Torahs will be returned or stored for next year.
Organized and established temples and congregations are be-
ginning to feel this drain on membership and needed support.
Shall we light this new development, or ignore the situation?
Most of the rabbis in established temples have been against
encouraging this dissipation of support and unity of the Jewish
community. A few rabbis, including the director of the United
Synagogue in this area, feel that this rapid growth of our area
and large influx of older Jewish residents, require a realistic ap-
Many residents of these high rise condominium developments,
in which hundreds of Jewish people reside, and do not want to
ride to a temple, prefer to have services on condominium poitt4>
Builders are also encouraging this by offering social halls and
special rooms for services and meetings.
Since these developments are new in our expanding Jewish
communities, it is urgent that we take a stand on this prolifera-
tion. We cannot interfere with another congregation hiring a full-
time rabbi and establishing a permanent temple, but we should
have some control over the condominium, once-a-year assemblies
which should be satellite groups, meeting under the auspices ot a
recognized congregation in the area.
These groups should certainly NOT be encouraged by tha
United Synagogue in any other way, by offering part-time rabbis,
cantors and prayer books which siphon off hundreds of worship-
pers from established congregations who need ALL YEAR sup-
port for their facilities, Hebrew Schools, faculty and programs .
many in expanded sanctuaries with added financial respon-. ril-
ities. ,
We know that any ten Jews can pray any time, anywhere
but isn't it better to BELONG to the organized Jewish community
with permanent status and leadership?
What do you think?
5 HESHVAN 6:38
Question Box
What is the significance of
the festival of Simchat Torah?
The day of Simchat Torah is
actually the last day of the Suc-
coth festival.
In Israel, this particular day
is not a festival because the
holiday ends the day before.
Whatever celebration takes
place outside of Israel on the
day of Simchat Torah, takes
place in Israel the day before
that, i.e., "Shmini Atzeretn."
In those communities where
the Pentateuch is read in an
annual cycle, this day is the
day on which the last portion
of the Pentateuch is read, im-
mediately followed by the read-
ing of the first portion from the
verv beginning.
This festival had an earlier
name called "Yom Hasefer,"
which indicated that was the
day in which the Book of Penta-
teuch was completed in the
series of annual readings in the
synagogue. The conclusion of
the study or reading of any
book called for a celebration.
Simchat Torah falls in line with
this practice.
Why are the Torahs carried
around the synagogue in cir-
cuits called "Hakafot?"
Generally speaking, this was
a means of bringing the Torah
as close as possible to every
Jewman, woman and child.
The rabbis were very insistent
tnat the Torah not remain a
private possession of the schol-
ar: but rather the inheritance k
of every Jew.
Some say that the seven cir-
cuits represent the seven Pa-
cuits represent the seven Pat-
Joseph, Moses, Aaron and
David. This was meant to show
that our traditions were repeat-
ed through the generations.
Some indicate that the se\*en
circuits are similar to the seven
circuits Joshua made around the
walls of Jericho. They indicate
that the Jew with his Torah can
break down any barrier of prej-
udice and misunderstanding. .
Others claim that the seven
circuits represent the seven
spheres of holiness through
which man travels to reach the
Almighty. The Torah thus, is the
ladder of approach on which
man climbs to the zenith of hoik
ness. i.

[the real story be-
hind that sudden change?
There is nothing new in this
Egyptian commitment. It was
part of the Km. 101 agreement
that ended the Yom Kippur War
in October, 1973. It was never
honored after that. It seems
now to be in the making that it
may not be honored again.
Still, the U.S. is on record as
having to test it much as
John Foster Dulles tested
Egypt's blockade of the Straits
of Tiran at Sharm el-Sheikh
after the 1956 Franco-British-
Israeli war.
But the 1956 defeat of Egypt
in that war was erased by Dul-
les and President Eisenhower,
and President Nasser could bow
with some arrogance to the test
of his blockade because he got
what he wanted, defeated or
IN THE 1973 war, Egypt sees
itself as victor. Furthermore,
there are terrorist forces to
contend with not under Anwar
Sadat's control. Beyond that,
there are major Arab nations
who regard the Sinai accord as
a stab in the back of the mythic
pan-Arab ethos.
Any single one of these forc-
es, even Sadat included, can
readily test the American test.
What then? Is that what had
begun to happen to the Israeli-
cargo laden Greek ship bound
for Suez when, suddenly, it
changed course? Was a counter-
test already in the offing?
WHAT I am suggesting here
is that all these elements com-
posing the bad side of the Sinai
coin can be expected to be cu-
mulative in their negative im-
pact on us during the years
A sorely-pressed American
people, seeking to pull back
from decades of international
commitments, are being forc-
ed to extend themselves again
instead. And behind a tissue of
lies, the administration tells
them there are no such com-
Who will get the brunt of
their rage once the truth is out
the Fords and Kissingers, or
the Israelis, and by extension,
American Jewry?
Well, President Ford repeat-
edly demonstrates his capacity
to save himself from dangerous
political situations. And I'm
betting on him to do it again
and again.
THE QUESTION in 'he end
is not whether the good side of
the coin has succeeded in
causing a break in Arab ranks.
The question in the end is that
the bad side of the coin has
succeeded in causing a break
in American ranks.
This is not a personal thing.
It is not a break over Israel but
a break over secret commit-
ments who is the ruler and
who is the ruled. And this time,
in this war, Israel stands be-
tween the monoliths of a bloat-
ed executive bureaucracy and
the people's legislative might
readv for intramural combat.
Arid that is NOT good.

In a major policy speech at

Gromyko declared that "to es-

their own state; and to guaran-
tee the rights of all the coun-
tries of the Middle East to in-
dependent development."
GROMYKO SAID that as long
as those crucial problems are
left unsolved there will be no
headway in the Middle East.
His speech, moderate in tone,
criticized but did not attack
either the U.S. or Israel.
He referred to the new Is-
raeli-Egyptian Sinai accord
without mentioning it directly
but implied criticism of the pact
when he observed that "the
problem of the Middle East
must be free from an approach
based on momenta rv considera-
tions and publicity."
He claimed that "It can be.
solved in the interests of the
security and independence of
all the countries of the region
only on condition of a serious |
and responsible approach to its
Israeli government in terms
that seemed almost mild com-
pared to previous Soviet blasts
against Israel. He said that "bv
all appearances, the circles
which determine the political
course of Israel have not yet
come to the realization that it
is impossible to insure the se-
curity of their country while
trampling upon the legitimate
rights of other countries which
are its neighbors. That policy
naturally meets with broad con-
Gromyko made several ref-
erences in his speech to the
rights of all countries in the
region, but he emphasized that
the solution of the Palestinian
problem is "an integral part of
an overall settlement in the
Middle East."

Civil Strife in Israel?
TEL AVIVStormy mass pro-
tests, unprecedented in the
history of Israel, did not block
an accord with Egypt, but nei-
ther was this the aim of the
demonstrators, according to the
editors of Ha'aretz.
Their objective was, accord-
ing to the newspaper, a warning
to the regime for the future,
should it agree to give up ter-
ritories close to home. This
means the Golan Heights, the
provinces Judea and Shomron,
not to mention the old city of
In the final analysis, says
Ha'aretz, even the most militant
circles do not consider the Si-
nai desert as traditional Israeli
territory. If the territorial con-
cessions in the Sinai produced
such protest, what will happen
if the government should sur-
render land areas that are much
closer to home? If the Israeli
authorities intend to conduct
negotiations with Dr. Kissinger
concerning Syria and Jordan
and from all appearances they
will have no choice because of
pressures from Washington
then it will become necessary
simultaneously to begin a multi-
faceted educational program
among the public and to mobi-
lize circles in support of the
government policy.
Unless this is done, the re-
gime will be confronted-with a
situation approaching that of
civil war. In that eventuality it
will not be sufficient to rely on
police even if they are prepared
to use harsh measures to sup-
press the protests, This sort of
basic political problem, accord-
ing to Ha'aretz. can only be
solved by political finesse and

USSR Selling Gold

pay for its wheat shipments
from America. Canada and
Australia. The meat ready par*
chasers of gold are the Arabs,
who pay- for the preoioor metal

As of now, the Soviets have
purchased 10 million tons of
wheat from America, and if is
expected that thev will acquire
an additional three million tons
This ia about the same amount
as the Soviets bought in the
v**r 1972.
The Soviet grain purchases
resulted in a noticeable increase
in the price of food products in
the United States, and as a re-
sult, Washington is watching the
Soviet wheat transactions with
a sharp eve in order to avoid
further inflationary consequenc-

claring that the earth was flat, it would be passed
by a two-thirds majority of the Arabs and the
Third World- Wee, with France abstaining."
This, re think is very gaen and-the fact is, we
behave it would come as a great surprise to many

If we cannot have humor, let us have love. It
was more cheering to hear that Elizabeth Taylor

and commentaries. The revised edition of his
"A Book of Jewish Concepts" (Mew York, He-
brew Publishing Co., $7.50, 722 pages) is anoth-
er crown in the works of this eminent He-
braist and scholar and is truly unique.
The aim of the book is to provide in a
single volume the essential teachings of Ju-
daism. The author contends that knowledge of
manor tare reached an abysmally low point
and that it is crucial that the Jewish heritage
be lookeU upon as a whole and not "as a mere
series- of precepts and concepts linked to-
FHE BOOK is encyclopedic in scope and
compact in content. The book points the way
to further study tor those who would learn the
universal message and teachings of Judaism.
The arrangements of the work is ;in the
form of a dictionary following the Hebrew
words. This presents no difficulty since there
is an index in English which is as detailed
and complete as any person would require.
There is no necessity for laborious search-
ing for any item. The opus may be read at
random or methodically. The numerous b'blical
and talmudic-midrashic quotations are freed
from archaic forms and technical language is
fully explained.
THE HEBREW language has no word for
slave. The word, "oved" is used not only for a
domestic servant but also for an officer, wor-
shiper, prophet, and subject. Birnbaum feels
that this "leshon ha-kodesh" (literally "holy
tongue") has held together the Jews in the
Diaspora and linked the generations of the
Jews together for over two millenia.
It is his hope that by preserving their
identity and ethnicity and being themselves,
Jews may again blaze a trail for others as
they did in the past.
IV- DILUTED Judaism and a reading of
best sellers by authors who, coincidentally, are
Jewish but are themselves ignorant or unaware
of the basics of their faith are not to be
equated or even compared to Birrfbaum's book.
for those Who would delve deeper into
the riohes of Judaism, we recdmmend "Pe-

You are about to find out
/hy a tire you never heard of
the best tire for these times
Radically new. Radically different.
The only radial with steel sidewalk.
The I.R I. All-Steel Radial is the world's first
all-steel radial tire for automobiles. It's the
most economical tire you can own. Because of
the radial design, you get more miles per gallon
f gas than from either bias or belted bias
tires Because of the exclusive I.R.I All-Steel
construction, you get thousands of extra miles
out of the tire itself. We believe the result
b the lowest cost per mile of driving from any
kind or any brand of tire on the market today.
Our engineers believe the 1 R.1. All-Steel
Radial drives safer, rides more comfortably,
steers more precisely and responds surer
than any other tire you can buy at any price.
We guarantee tbem for 50.000 miles. What's
more, Norton is so sure you'll find these
the finest tires you've ever had that if you
are not satisfied at any time within 90 days,
we will refund your purchase price in fulL
No tricks. No hidden charges.
But, boil it all down and
you've got three basic
tire types to consider.
Two. four or lometimes even more plies (of
byets) of material cross under the tread at an
ingle or bias to the center line ol the tire. Generasy
the cheapest tire to buy.
Similar to the bus tire with the addition ol two
or more belts of material that run around the tire
under the tread This combines a bias sidewall
with increased tread stability and improved
tread life.
Offer the most desirable features Cords of
material run from 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 7.75s all of which fit the
same car. And nylon and rayon and polyester
and fiberglass and steel. And plies on plies.
SINCE 1924
The strongest radial to an all-steel radial.
The I.RI. to the only all-steel radial
automobile tire.
Conventional, so-called steel radiats. put steel
to work beneath the tread only. One or two
belts of sted 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-belted radial. This is
important in understanding the superiority of
an I.R.I. Ail-Sted 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 sted 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. All-Steel Radial uses a specially
designed steel cable engineered exclusively for
us. Each cable is wound of seven strands of
1. The only lire with STEEL
sidewalls for strength and
flexibility, more protect*)",
more comfort.
2. Two belts of special filament
steel cable for maximum tread
strength, 30 steel cables per inch.
Total: Three layers J sted
beneath the tread.
3. Double sted protection here.

on both sides of the bead

three-filament wire That's a total of 21 strong
sted 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.RI All-Sted
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 tite-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.
