S. Broward Mission Raises Over $260,000 for '76
"II was a happening!" said Joyce Newman, Wom-
en's Division president, about the mission to Israel,
the first to be sponsored by the Jewish Federation of
South Broward. T!-e 103-memhcrs group returned
trom a 10-day in-depth tour of Israel, w'lere they
studied the physical, social and economic conditions.
Lewis Cohn. 1976 general campaign chairman, said
"approximately S260,0O0 was raised for the ensuing
i. i ipaign. a 122-percent increase from the same con-
tributors lat year." Cohn added that "leadership was
delighted with the campaign figures, but even more
Importantly that the group got a firsthand view of
the problems that are facing Israel and the Jewish peo-
ple at this time.
"In addition to collecting a fantastic sum for the
campaign," Cohn continued, "the group gained tre-
mendous insight into the burdens of the country which
will now enable them to act as emissaries in our Jew-
ish community.
"Our first niaht in Israel afforded us a thrilling
evening when we attended a cocktail party at
home of Moshe Dayan. He is tiuly a dynamic
exciting personality," Cohn observed.

Government officials and

here that Israel did not nec-

last week, but neither was

Political sources said that
for the shor* run at least,
Secretary ot State Henry A.
Kissinger would continue to
be the key figure ;r. the ma-
jor White House decisions
on the Middle East and for-
eign policy generally, even
thouph he will no longer be
cluiirrPHn of the National
Security Council.
OBSERVERS tended to ulay
d( WB the importance of Ford's
dismissal of Defense Secretary
James R. Schlesinger and his
nomination of Donald Rums-
feld to replace him.
The Defense Department has
had relatively little to say in
the formulation of overall Mid-
east policy. But many Israeli
officials were privately critical
of Schlesinger's opposition to
the sale of long-range Pershing
missiles to Israel.
Nevertheless, some sources
expressed misgivings that the
elevation of Rumsfeld to the
top defense post could lead to
a further deterioration of Is-
rael's relations with the Pen-
tagon. Rumsfeld, the White
House Chief of Staff, is held
responsible by many Israelis
for .Ford's sharp letter to Pre-
""^ffieffflzhak Rabin last March
rebuking him for refusing to
accept the terms then offered
by Egypt for a second interim
agreement in Sinai.

Eliminate Israel,
PLO Demands
doumi, head of the Palestine Liberation Organization,
has called on the General Assembly to take "effective
and operational measures" to eliminate Zionism and
the State of Israel.
Opening the Assembly's debate on the Palestine
issue with a bitter attack on "the Zionist enemy and its
imperialist ally, the United States," the PLO spokes-
man reiterated its demand for the establishment of a
secular, democratic state in
all of Palestine, denounced
the step-by-step approach
to a Middle East settlement
as doomed to failure and in-
dicated that the PLO Would

as "our friend who opposes Is-

Dear .Sic:
In a recent issue of the Miami

Messrs Ford and Sadat signed
agreements providing for the
concessional sale to Egypt of
$98 milllion worth of American
wheat. Hour and tobacco. It also
pointed out that the administra-
tion had decided to ask Con-
gress for $750 million in sco-
nomic aid to Egvot is addition
to the farm commodities. Sadat
was also seeking military com-
mitments as well.
So far so good, as lone aa it
keens the communist bloc out
of the picture. However, at a
news conference after meetinR
with Ford. Sadat called for a
r-simntion of.the Geneva Peace
Conference with participation
by the FLO aa an eoual oactner.
Furthermore. Sadat said it was

Samuel Weissberg of Hallan-

has been named chairman of
trie South Broward area for the
S6uth Florida Israel Bond Cash
Mobilization campaign. The
announcement was made by
William Littmah, chairman,
board of governors, South
Broward County, for State of
Israel Bonds.
weissberg, who is from the
Pittsburgh area, has been af-
filiated with the United Jewish
Appeal campaign since 1949,
serving as chairman in the trl-
state area of Ohio, Pennsylvania
and West Virginia. He has been
a member of B'nai B'rith for SO
years, the Masonic lodge for
forty vears and a councilman
in his home town.
Littman announced that Weiss-
berg will be responsible for pro-
curing campaign vice chairmen
and captains who will recruit
volunteers to work on two "Cash
Sundays," November 23 and De-
cember 7, In a cash "Phone-A-
Thoh." There win be campaign
headquarters throughout the
South Broward area and the
battery of telephones will be
manned from 9 a.m. to noon.
The objective of the day-long
Israel Bond cash drive is to help
provide Israel with a maximum
amount of investment capital
with which to maintain the
rriomentum of her economy and
speed up her industrial and
agricultural production in order
to prevent a sharp rise in ifaiem-
ployment. A major goal of the
cash campaign is the collection
of all outstanding commitments
to the purchase of Israel Bonds
earlier this year*
"Cash Sunday" is part of a
nationwide cash drive during
November and December, which
began Nov. 2. the anniversary
of the Balfour Declaration which
laid the groundwork for the
creation of the modern State of
In stressing Israel's vital need
for cash, Weissberg declaro/f:
"The recent interim agreVient
between Israel and Egvot is a
step toward peace, accomplish-
ed as a result of Israel's
strength. It is our responsibility
to give Israel the economic
strength to achieve a full peace
"The protected $2.3 billion in
U.S. aid, which is to be eartrj-
marked almost comoletelv for
defense." he continued will cov-
er onlv two-thirds of Israel's
defense budget.
"As a result of huge outlavs
for defense." Weissberg stated,
"Israel is faced with a shortage
of financial resources for de-
velopment projects which are
essential for the economic
health of the country, and that
is whv Israel Bohds are so im-
portant at this time."
"Through the purchase of Is-
rael Bonds on 'Cash Sunday,'
we riot onlv show our solidarity
with Israel in this critical period
of her historv hi1.* we also en-
hance the chances of peace by
keeping the country's economy
strong,", he concluded.

Still Solent ypiges
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Daniel
Moynihan put the General Assembly anti-Zionist
vote well when he declared it an "infamous act."
What the vote declares is that the leadership
of the world is bankrupt. We have nothing to say
about those who voted for the resolution.
Their hatred, their pitiable backward ignor-
ance, their expediency in the name of "African
emergence" and Arab "liberation" all this is
But what we do point our occusing finger at
are the nations that abstained or "absented" them-
selves European, Latin American, Oriental.
They knew better. But they sat silently by,
destroying principle in the name of their own piti-
able ignorance and expediency. With their voices,
the United Nations and human decency might have
been saved.
Without them, the die is cast.
Welcome To CJFWF
The problems facing Jews today are extraordinarily
complex and serious. It would not be far-fetched to
characterize them as critical.
Whether we are talking about Jewish identity prob-
lems in America or the sheer survival of Jews in Arab
lands or Jews trying to reach freedom from the prison
that is the Soviet Union or the future of Israel any
of these would qualify for inclusion in the category of
, "Jews in Crisis."
It is largely to this and its related themes that the
44th General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Fede-
. rations and Welfare Funds will be addressing itself
' when some 3,000 delegates gather here for Assembly
sessions Nov. 19 to 23.
We welcome this distinguished gathering to our
South Florida community and are honored that the G.A.
has chosen our midst for its serious deliberations.
Awesome Responsibilities
There is hardly an area of Jewish concern that the
delegates will fail to consider in the rich variety of their
plenary and workshop sessions.
For our own part, American Jewry must face up
not only to its own ideological crises but to the crisis
in fund-raising for Jewish needs at home and abroad.
In a time of increasing economic difficulty, this is
a most awesome Jewish responsibility. It is especially
awesome reckoned in terms of political and economic
considerations not uniquely Jewish to which, as Amer-
icans, we must respond and deal with at the same time
that global Jewish needs remain as urgently ongoing
as ever.
Add to this new factors in the American Jewish
dilemma, a growing anti-Semitism emerging here out
of the still-unresolved Middle East dilemma, and the
American Jewish burden seems incalculably profound.
World Jewry-A Grave View
But, as we have said, serious and even critical as
these are, they represent only one facet of world Jewry's
problems today. Others include:
What can Israel look forward to in the two or
three years ahead, faced as she is with monumental
economic problems all her own?
Is the Israeli isolation from the mainstream of
world sympathy reflective of a general Jewish isolation
in the diaspora, as well?
What hope is there for Middle East Jewry out-
side of Israel?
Meeting Jewish needs in a period of unemploy-
ment and inflation what are the realistic possibilities?
New horizons for women's roles in Jewish lead-
ership how extensive are they?
These and a host of other considerations are what
the Council of Jewish Eederajtjpns.and Welftug Funds
will be looking t during )hef44thfcGeneral Assembly
It is a G.A. that will prove to be both memorable
and historic if we judge on no other basis than the
gravity of the problems hanging in the balance.
Machismo or Wailing Wall Jew
rJxHE UNITED States Senate
Is probably* the "most ex-
clusive chib in the world. Elec-
tion to it doesn't necessarily
guarantee membership.
That is why senators become
unrecognizable to their consti-
tuents once they make it to
Capitol Hill. What they say to
wheedle votes down on the
farm is not what they do in
Gay Paree.
IN THE Senate, the rule is
power. Beginners almost never
have it. Like pledges working
their way through the hazing
of a college fraternity, they
must earn it.
This takes a singular willing-
ness to be humiliated, to do
meaningless work on meaning-
less committees as a public
confession of fledgling status.
The ultimate prize is worth it.
A senator makes his way up-
stairs by playing the power
game: you wash my feet; some-
aay. 1 may g t around to oc iiu-
bing your bac''.

Squabble Over Aid Cuts
Not Seen as a Problem
Questions raised by Israel over
the Ford administration's pro-
posals for American economic
and military assistance to Israel
"will not create problem be-
tween the United States and Is-
rael," the State Department said
"Obviousjy, the whole thing
will be discussed on the Hill."
Department spokesman Robert
Anderson said. He was referring
to congressional scrutiny of the
$4.7 billion aid program tjiat
included $2.24 billion for Iscael
and $750 million for Egypt.
raised by Israeli Ambassador
Simcha Dinitz with Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger, the
State Department said. Ander-
son said "those questions are in
the process of being resolved."
Israeli Premier Yitzhak Rabin
told his cabinet meanwhile that
the administration's prooosal
was $60 million less than Israel
was promised by Kissinger dur-
ing the Sinai negotiations. He
also said that SI.24 billion of
the proposed aid was in loans
although Israel had understood
that twojthirds of the U.S. as-
sistance would be grants.
In another development, An-
derson said that he expected to
have "something later" on the
report that the United States
will notify the International
Labor Organization in Geneva
that it is withdrawing from that
United Nations body.
It is understood here that
Labor Secretary John T. Dun-

prompted Premier Yitzhak Ra-
bin to take issue with the U.S.
Administration for short-chang-
ing Israel in its foreign aid bill,
informed sources here told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
The Premier sharply criticiz-
ed the Ford Administration at
his Cabinet meeting for failing
to keep its pledge to ask Con-
gress for $2.3 billion in aid for
asked for S.i.24 bil!ion. Rabin
also pointed out that whereas
the pledge called for the aid as
two-thirds grant' and one-third
loan, the Administration asked
for the larger Dart as a loan,
thereby increasing the burden
for the Israeli taxpayer
Informed sources here said
the Administration's pledges
were "concluded" during Sep-
tember, having been negotiated
bv Secretary of State Henry A.
Kissinger during his August
shuttle in the region.
THE PREMIER was worried,
the sources said, that the Ad-
ministration's reneging on the
pledge'albeit to a relatively
small degree could presage
failure to honor other, more im-
portant, commitments under-
taken by Washington as part of
the interim agreement package.
"It's not the money (S60 mil-
lion less) but the principle that
is at stake." one tpD source ex-
plained. The source indicated
that there was not much real-
istic hone of reversing the Ad-
ministration's decision.
But Rabin felt, nevertheless,
that Israel could not let the
episode pass without objection,
since that could set a Dotential-
hj, dangerous Drecedent of re-
signed subservience which could
boomerang later.
THE SOURCES here were
especially perturbed by the tim-
ing of the Administration move
during the visit bv Egyptian
President Anwar Sadatand by
its broader context: Washing-
ton's pointed failure to take is-
sue with Sadat's anti-Zionist and
anti-Jewish statements.
Jerusalem has been disap-
pointed, though not realistically
shocked by these statements.
There has been grief and shock
though at Washington's delib-
erate and unswerving efforts to
play down the statements.
Regarding the aid bill, while
Egypt's share is of much- small-
er substance, because there is
no military aid yet, there has
been no Administration effort to
pare it down or nennv-ninch,
and this, too, is a source of'
chagrin for the Israelis, who see
their own economic aid package
whittled down. EgvDt will re- i
ceive some $200 million worth
of food under the "PL 480" pro-
gram, but that, unlike Israel's
much smaller auantity of food
aid, is not reckoned bv the Ad-
ministration as nart of Egypt's
overall economic aid figure of
$750 million.

Prof. Peter Marris, visiting
professor of sociology at Bos-
Bn University, on leave from
:ic Center for Environmental
Studies in London, described
the bereaved's "crisis of mean-
ing" as the problem a person
encounters when he finds all
his purposes, thoughts, and be-
haviors interrelated with one no
longer there, and the grieving
nrocess as that which helps to
formulate new purposes and ac-
tions not related to the deceas-
Our reality, he contended, is
made up of purposes, actions,
thoughts, behaviors, connected
with those around us.
"Hence the meaning of a mar-
riage, of being a mother or
father, is embodied in thou-
sands of specific activities, in
which are invested the hopes,
fears, pleasures, annoyances,
love and hate that together
constitute its reality," he said.

meaning," he continued. 'I lost
interest.' 'I went dead' are
typical comments during this
time he said.
"A sense of continuity can.
then, only be restored by de-
taching the familiar meanings
of life from the relationship in
which they were embodied, and
reestablishing them independ-
ently of it- This is what hap-
pens in the working through of
grief," he said.
Rabbi Maurice Lamm, spir-
itual leader of the Beth Jacob
Congregation in Beverly Hills,
Cab/., addressed himself to the
bestion of the spiritual impact
of bereavement. The rabbi, au-
thor of "The Jewish Way in
Dath and Mourning." stressed
the important beneficial asDects
of the traditional Jewish mourn-
THE FIRST and dominant re-
action of one who just lost a
loved one, he said, is to ask why,
and to feel that G-d is unjust.
The injunctions for repeating
the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer
of mourning, however, cause the
bereaved to echp the phrase
"God is iust" over and over
throu shout the mourning
The prayer also contains fre-
quent mention of the concepts
of life and peace, speaking to
the living about life, and helping
to bring the mourner back to
Rabbi Lamm also said that
the different periods of mourn-
ing in Judaic tradition, differ
ing in intensity, serve to grad-
ually bring the mourner bacK
to a normal life.

morning session. Dr." Sol Nem-
zoff. consulting Dsvchiatrist at
the Abington Memorial Hospital,
Abington, Pa., and a faculty
member at Werweiler School ot
Social Work at Yeshiva Univer-
sity, called mourning "the
working through of potentially
explosive ambivalent feelings."
HE SAID an individual's
ability to cope with the loss of
one close to him depended on
the position of the deceased, ex-
pectation of death, the balance
of love and hate in their former
relationship, and other social
and psychological factors.

j ml ah Touro & Uriah Phillips
Temple Beth Am
It would be difficult to fine
two men more diametrically op-
posed in their attitudes toward
Judaism and their participation
in American life than Judah
Touro and Uriah Phillips Lsvy.
Both are known to us as out-
standing American Jewish fig-
ures from the first half of the
19th century, but they earned
their reputations in remarkably
different ways.
Judah Touro (1775-1354) was
born into a well-established,
well-connected Sephardic family
that had its center of operations
in Newport, Rhode Island, but
Judah left Newport for New
Orleans. The reason for his do-
ing so is not certain; legend has
it that his romance with a cou-
sin was thwarted, and he could
no longer bear to remain in the
same city with her. Whether
there is truth in the legend or
not, we know that he never
married. Rather, he lived very
much alone, aoart from New
Orleans society. And although
it was suspected in later years
that he was becoming a very
wealthy man, one would never
know it from his stvle of living.
Only after his death were these
suspicions confirmed.
We do know of Judah Touro
that he took Dart in the Battle
of New Orleans, in which be was
severely wounded. Perhaps it
was because of these wounds
that he withdrew from society.
His life was saved by Rezin
Shepherd, who became a friend
and. ultimately, the executor of
Judah's estate.
Judah's fortune was amassed
not so much through business
acumen but through modest liv-
ing and conservative invest-
ments in real estate during a
period of major financial fluc-
tuations. He was by trade a
commission merchant, accepting
goods for sale on consignment.
There were other commission
' merchants of his day far more
successful than he. but none was
i so modest or conservative in
life style or investment, and
none was able as he was to
weather the storms of financial
Judah showed no interest in
philanthropy during his life-
time, nor was he ever active
in the Jewish community, but
tWo weeks before his death he
wrote a will that assured his
place in the annals of Jewish
hfisSory. Through 65 separate
bequests. Judah Touro dis-
persed $483,000, an enormous
sum for that time, to various
' charities, religious and secular,
; throughout the United States.
No American had ever given so
j much to so many causes. Jewish
congregations of most major
cities were beneficiaries, but. in
addition, he gave monev to com-
bat yellow fever in New Or-
leans, and a hospital that bears
Ihis name to this day. the Touro
Tnfirmat-r. was constructed. He
left monev to the cities of New-
port and Boston, to orphan
asylums and humane societies.
And no one is quite sure why.
Uriah Phillins Lew (1792-
1862) on the other hand, never
left anvone in doubt concern-
ing any of his actions. He
stems from another established
Sephardic family based in Phrla-
delphia, and he took upon him-
self the burden of defending
Jewish rights and human rights
wherever there was the slight-
est indication of need. Where
Touro chose to be quiet, Levy
spoke out.
Before Uriah Phillips Levy,
there had never been a Jewish
officer in the United States
Navy. This was reason enough
for him to embark uoon a naval
career. He went off to sea at
age fourteen, studied naviga-
tion, was pressed for a short
time into the British Navy,
which did not know what to
make of him and let him no. He
joined the United States Navy
as a sailing master and served
as a volunteer aboard the famed
blockade runner "Argus" during
the war of 1812. Captured by
the British, he spent some
months in Dartmoor prison.
Constantly in trouble because
of his religion, he found himself
as an enlisted man fighting a
duel with an officer. Five times
he fired into the air rather than
shoot at the man, but on the
sixth round took aim and killed
his opponent. As a result, he
found himself mired in legal
difficulties, both civilian and
military, but this did not phase
Uriah. He applied for and re-
ceived a commission from Presi-
dent Monroe in 1817 and be-
came the first American Jew-
ish naval officer.
The combination of anti-
Semitism and his impetuous na-
ture indicated a troubled career
ahead, and courts martial be-
came a way of life. In 1819, two -
years after he was commission- I
ed, he was dismissed from the |
Navy, but he continued to fight
the system, and two years later, |
his conviction was overruled.
He returned to the Navy only I
to be dismissed again in 1823. f
Almost as a sideline during this I
tumultuous period of convic- I
tions and appeals, Uriah made \
a fortune in real estate, buying \
and selling property in Man-
contested his dismissal in a
much publicized trial, was rein-
stated into the Navy, took a new
command (with his wife aboard)
to the Mediterranean and in
1860, with the rank of Commo-
dore, assumed command of the
Mediterranean fleet. He was
looking forward to action in the
Civil War when he died of
pneumonia in 1862.
In his will, he left the bulk
of his estate to charity, but the
will was contested and broken.
It is not for his beauests, but
for his actions that Uriah Phil-
lips Levy will be remembered.
Is Israel A Theocracy?
Question Box
What is the m:aning and
derivation of the term "B'-
rakah" (i.e. benediction)?
Basically, every benediction
either begins its first verse or
last verse with the term
"blessed" (Boruk). Most schol-
ars question such a simple
translation because it seems
strange to have man bless the
Almighty. Some trace this term
to the word "knee." implying
that in making some benedic-
tions man bends the knee in
servitude and acknowledgement
of the Almighty. Others read
into this word the idea that in
"bending the knee" one
"spreads" himself in space. This
implies that the Almighty
"spreads" his Grace over man
and all creatures in the universe
by letting all living creatures
enjoy His providence. Such a
translation is more in keeping
with the meaning of the general
term "benediction."
Uriah was an enthusiastic ad-
mirer of Thomas Jefferson and
commissioned a statue which he
contributed to the government,
a controversial and unprece-
dented gift. The statue was
moved about, but now stands
in the rotunda of the Caoitol.
Not satisfied with that. Uriah
purchased Jefferson's estate,
Monticello, which had fallen
into disrepair, and began the
work of restoring and protect-
ing it.
Some twenty years after be-
ing commissioned a Lieutenant,
Uriah was promoted to the rank
of Commander, and immediately
applied for sea duty. He was
given the "Vandailia," a com-
mand in miserable condition
which he brought into order
without once resorting to the
lash, then the usual means of
maintaining discipline aboard
shin. This earned him only re-
lief of his command and an-
other court martial, the sixth of
his career, and. he was .again
dismissed from the Navy. While,
he carried on a campaign to
do away with corporal punish-
ment, he fought his conviction,
was restored to the Navy rolls
only to be dismissed again by
a review board*. Uriah was then
63 vears old. He had been mar-
ried recently for the first time,
to an 18 year old niece, but
rjothinjf could distract him. He

Webster's dictionary defines
"theocracy" as rule by G-d or
a government by priests who
claim to rule by divine power.
According to both definitions,
Israel is not a theocracy but a
democracy, where the people
elect their representatives ta
?o-*ie of the representatives
may be rabbis or lavmen with
deep religious convictions or
without anv religious bei::v
and some even with anti-reli-
gious beliefs.
In the United States Catholic
priests are elected to Congress
and even though their religious
beliefs may influence their vot-
ing on issues, their presence in
Congress does not make this
country a theocracy.
Similarly in Israel. The pres-
ence of rabbis in the Knesset
does not make Israel a theocra-
cy. Laws are passed in Congress
by the will of the people, simi-
larly in the Knesset
Unfortunately the word the-
ocracy stirs more emotions than
it does thought. I have not seen
or heard "religion in Israel"
discussed in a rational way or in
a thought-provoking manner, in
either the Dress or the pulpit.
Let us start with a number of
basic questions:
Should there be a national
day of rest in Israel?
Rachel's tomb.
"And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to
Ephrath the same is Bethlehem. And Jacob set up a
pillar upon her grave (Gen. 35.19-20).
VAYISHLAH Approaching the boundary of the
land of Seir where his brother Esau dwelt, Jacob pru-
dently sent messengers ahead to inform Esau of his
coming and of his wealth. The messengers returned with
the news that Esau was advancing toward Jacob with
400 men. Terrified, Jacob divided his camp into two
sections, so as not to lose all in the event of an attack
He sent gifts to Esau and prayed God to save him from
his brother. Jacob crossed the stream of Jabbok with
his camp. There, as he stood alone, an angel approached
and wrestled with him. At the end of the struggle the
angel declared: "Thy name shall be called no more Ja-
cob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with God and with
men, and hast prevailed" (Genesis 32.29). Thus encour-
aged, Jacob met Esau, whom he treated with the utmost
deference. Embracing, the two brothers kissed, wept,
and were reconciled. Jacob journeyed on to Shechem.
There the rape of Jacob's only daughter, Dinah, by the
prince of that city, led to the vengeful destruction of
Shechem by two of Dinah's brothers. Proceeding to
Beth-el, Jacob kept the vow he had made to return
thither. On the way, Rachel gave birth to Jacob's last
and youngest son, Benjamin. But Rachel died in child-
i birth and Jacob buried her on the way to Ephrath
which is Bethlehem.

A similar situation once ex-
isted in the Jewish Orthodox
community of Germany. The
trouble is that most Jews think
in terms of the American cony
cept of separation of church and
The United States is the only
country in the world that has
such a constitutional provision.
England, which 's. a demo-
cratic country, does not have
that provision. Yet it is not a
theocracy even though the
Anglican Church is legally the
Church of England.
To say that Israel is a theocra-
cy is a charge motivated by
Jews who have a passionate
hatred of orthodoxy. "Who is a
Jew?" touches on bfsic religious
law and must therefore be de-
cided by Halacha. the basis of
religious observance. If an obv*
servant Jew wishes to marry, he
must know that that person is
truly Jewish; otherwise there
can be no marriage.
If the law will not define who
is a Jew according to Halacha,
the ministry of welfare will-be
forced to keep two registries of
Jews, one of Jews who conform
to Halacha and ons of Jews who
do not conform to Halacha. and
never the twain could meet.

ing four chanters. It does not
have the Gemara in the Babylon-
ian Talmud. It deals in great
detail with the rules for the
setting aside of the challah.
Accordine to some sources
the obligation to separate the
challah in accordance condi-
tions. Following the destruction
of the Temple, it was not pos-
sible for the priests to observe
the laws of ritual purity which
would allow them to eat the
sacred portion of the dough,
therefore the rabbis ordained
that it be burned. In order that
the precept not be forgotten
however, the rabbis made it
obligatory to separate the chal-
lah from the 'dough, both in
Eretz Yisroel and throughout
the Diaspora.
It is interesting to note that
this is one of the command-
ments incumbent upon women
presumably because traditional-
ly women baked the bread.
The following blessing is pro-
nounced. "Blessed art Thou. O
Lord our God, King of the uni-
verse, who hast sanctified us by
Thy commandments and com-
manded us to separate the chal-
lah from the dough."
The commandment to separate
the challah from the dough is
also incumbent upon profession-
al bakers, but the portion to be
separated is different in size
from that of the home-baked
bread. If the challah has not
been set aside from the dough
before bakiy. it must be set
aside from the baked bread.
"Challah" also means bread,
white bread, white loaf. Sab-
bath loaf, or cake in the sense
of a mixture of flour being
formed into a compact mass.
"Challah" is now popularly
used to denote the white twisted
bread baked for the Sabbath,
presumably because the bread
was baked in accordance with
the biblical and rabbinical pre-
cepts of separating the challah
from the dough.

I. Houlihan,
Touro Family
to U.S.History
The oldest existing synagogue building in
North America memorializes the Touro Fam-
ily the father Isaac, the sons Benjamin and
Judah. It stands in Newport, Rhode Island, and
houses the Joshuat Israel Congregation.
Touro Synagogue was dedicated as a Na-
tional Historic Shrine on August 31, 1947, by
the National Park Service of the U.S. Dept. of
Interior. A bronze tablet is inscribed with a
few highlights of the sanctuary's history:
". it was dedicated on December 2,
1763. Here 1781-84 the Rhode Island General
Assembly met, and during Washington'o visit
to Newport in 1781, a town meeting was held
here. The State Supreme Court held sessions
here at that period ... in 1790 George Wash-
ington wrote that happily the government
of the United States gives to bigotry no
sanction, to persecution no assistance."
ft ft ft
ISAAC TOURO was the first hazzan and
spiritual leader of the new synagogue. Born
in Holland circa 1737, he came to America in
1760, lived in New York, then Boston and
came to Newport when its new Sephardic syn-
agogue was opened. Among his many friends
was Ezra Styles, president of Yale, whose
diary noted considerable data about Touro's
In i773, Isaac married Reyna Hays, sister
of Moses Michael Hays, the wealthy and so-
cially prominent Bostonian. Their two sons,
Judah and Benjamin, were born in 1775 and
1777. When the Revolution forced the closing
of the synagogue in 1780, Isaac took his fam-
ily to New York, later to Kingston, Jamaica,
where he died in 1784. His widow and sons
returned to Boston where their affluent uncle
saw to their education and training in com-
ft ft ft
BENJAMIN TOURO prospered and, true
to the Touro tradition in Newport, was gen-
erous in charitable gifts. Benjamin left a large
part of his fortune for the upkeep of sites of
Jewish significance in that city.
One specific bequest, for example, was
$10,000 to the State of Rhode Island for the
upkeep of the synagogue where his father
officiated, and $5,000 for the reconstruction of
the street leading from there to the cemetery-
Benjamin died in 1822 at the young age of 45.
Touro Synagogue, Newport, R.I., is the
oldest existing synagogue building in
the United States and a national shrine.
Had he lived as long as his brother, his char-
ities would have been far greater.
ft ft ft
JUDAH TOURO lived to the ripe old age
of 79 and became the first Jew in America to
achieve the status of {C~at philanthropist. Ex-
ample: In 1839, Boston blue blood Amof Laut-
ence offered to contribute half the $20,000
cost of a monument that would memorialize
the Battle of Bunker Hill. No one responded,
and the project seemed doomed. One day a
letter came from far away New Orleans, con-
taining a check for $10,000, signed by Judah
"Who was this man Touro?" they asked
in Boston. On checking him out, Judah was
found to be a merchant and philanthropist
of the "first eminence." He had gone from
Boston at age 23 to New Orleans to seek his
fortune, where he arrived in 1802, penniless.
But the times were fortuitous. The Louisiana
Purchase, Ely Whitney's cotton gin and rice
crops from the delta country brought sustain-
ed and expanding prosperity to New Orleans,
and to one of its most astute merchants, Judah
IN THE war of 1812, Touro joined Gen.
Andrew Jackson in the historic defense of New
Orleans. He was seriously wounded and dur-
ing a long convalescence, decided to share
his wealth as he made it. Touro grew richer
and richer, and his gifts multiplied. When a
Church, for instance, fell deeply in debt and
bankruptcy, Touro bought it for $20,000 and
returned it to the congregation. He founded
the'great hospital in that city which bears his
name. He helped build synagogues and built
a home for orphan boys. And he founded the
first free library in New Orleans.
After his death, every existing synagogue,
every Hebrew school, every hospital and re-
lief society in America Jewish, Christian
and non-sectarian shared in his fortune. In-
cluded were gifts of $75,000 for the Synagogue
and cemetery in Newport, and $13,000 to the
city for a park and library.

Brazil Jews
A group of Jewish leaders went
to Brasilia Tuesday fo Drotest
to top government officials

do da Silveira's recent attack on

foV allegedly supporting Israel

The delegation, representing

Kosher Foodlift
Victory Weapon
How a kosher foodlift between
colonial America and Europe
was transformed into a supply
line for the,Revolutionary Army
after the Declaration of Inde-
nt' nderice is one of the lesser
known and more surprising
sidelights of American history.
Even more surprising is to
discover the story of a cook-
BUT THATS the kind of
cookbook that's been written by
Malvina W. Liebman, a .nation-
ally-known educator of Miami.
It's called "Jewish Cookery from
Boston to Baghdad." and is to
be published in November by
E. A. Seemann Publishing, inc.,
of Miami.
"It's a sociological cookbook."
explains Mrs. Liebman, whose
natural habitat is more class-
room than kitchen.
Even the name of the book is
somewhat a surprise, since it is
Mrs. Liebman's theory that
there is no such thing as "Jew-
ish" cookery. Rather, there are
national dishes from all over
the world which Jewish com-
munities in those areas modi-
fied to meet their customs.
THUS HER book is replete

prune roll. Irish coffee pie, Ar-
menian thin bread. South Afri-
can yams. Hungarian cheese
balls. Balkan chicken and rice.
Ethiopian Iamb shanks. Beef
Tiab-Chin. and dozens of other
international delicacies.
The recipes are preceded 1ry
palatable portions df history of
their antecedents. That's the so-
ciological'part of the cookbook.
And tniis ft is that in the recipe
for St. Eustatius fruit cake you
also find out about the colonial
kosher foodbft.
"During the American revo-
luVion, St. -Eostathis. one Of the
Dutch Caribbean islands, was a
very important center of trade,"
explains Mrs. Liebman.
"THERE WAS a prosperous
Jewish coTTrmnriity oh the is-
land, many members of which
Had relatives in Amsterdam.
Active trading between the two
places formed a large part of
the business activity. Many
American Jewish colonists who
played a substantial role in fi-
nancing revolutionary efforts
had ties with Jews On St.
"Originally, these colonists
traded with St. Eustatius as a
Way to get kosher food from
Europe. But during the war
they sent messages with the
captains of ships that were run-
ning the British blockade con-
cerning needed supplies and
armaments. They also sent the
money to pay for these supplies.
The islanders got the supplies
and armaments from Europe
through Amsterdam."
And. does a normal cookbook
divulge the information that
there was a community of
Chinese Jews who flourished in
K'aifeng-Fu from the time of
the Sung Dynasty in 949 C.E.
or perhaps earlier? Mrs. Lieb-
manVbodk does, serving the in-
formatibn as lagniappe to her
recipe for Melon 6f the Pure
and True Temple.

writing field of cookery, she is

Yadin Spotlights
Discovery of Citadel
YADIN, YIGAEL. Hazor: the Rediscovery of a
Great Citadel of the Bible. New York: Ran-
dom House, I97S. 280 p. illus. $20.00.
JJAZOR RHYMES with "makor" "makor" in
Hebrew means source, and "The Source"
by James Michener, is the popular and his-
torically accurate novel which recreates layer
by layer the story of this unique city in the
Galilee of Israel.
Yadin was drawn to Hazor as a PhD can-
didate in archaeology researching the art of
warfare in biblical lands. (This thesis was pub-
lished in 1963 in a very attractive format which
his later works such as "Masada," "Bar-Kokh-
ba" and now "Hazor" duplicate.)
It was an enormous city spanning a large
geographical area with unusual features. Yadin
knew that Hazor played an important role in
the history of Canaan in biblical times. There-
fore, he anticipated a fruitful dig.
THE EXCAVATIONS,at Mazor, which span-
ned the summers of 1955-58, were carried out
as a classic archaelogical dig: uncovering over
20 strata at the "tell" (an -ancient mound)
which covered a span df 3,000 years.
As altars, tunnels, vessels and figurines are
discovered in every strata, "Yadin recreates for
us the cultures that must have used these ob-
jects. Because of earlier excavations elsewhere
in Israel, the Hazor team is able to compare
findings and arrive at fascinating conclusions.
It is found that one of the strata was a city
built by King Solomon. This is confirmed after
comparing mason marks on the stones from the
Meciddo r>i? with those at Hazor.
THE "JELL" orovidis the archaeologists
with some extraordinary insights Into ancient
Palestinian life. Numbers of jars are found
beneath most of the floors (beaten-earth) in
stratum 3. Upon opening several of these jars,
they are seen to be infant burials.
Originally thought to be child sacrifices,
these burials were common practiceburying
dead infants under the floor of homes so they
might continue to live near their families.
Archaeological terminology in "Hazor" is
simplv explained. Drawings and photographs
are clearlv marked next to the appropriate text.
A colorful table of strata and chronology at
the end of the book is an excellent reference
tool w
YADIN'S ENTHUSIASM is contagious. Like
his previous works, this book is written for the
lav person. Yadin uses a variety of literary
techniques and an engrossing format through-
out the test to encourage the reader to par-
ticipate in the dig, and to empathize with the
team hi the unfolding drama.
The dig at Hazor confirmed a number of
hypotheses with which the team began: Joshua,
not Deborah, destroyed Jabin, the Canaanite
King cf Hazor; Solomon rebuilt Hazor; and the
biblical account of the citv indeed follows the
history ni Hazor during the rule of the kings
of Israel.
A Song That May Vet
Make israel's Bit Parade
A NEW song written by Nomi Shemer almost
inevitably heads for the top of the Hit
Parade. The popular writer, who usually does
both words and -music -for her hits, has a
knack, for capturing the mood and spirit of the
.people of Israel and translating them into tunes
and verses which reflect the times. .
PerhaDS bast known of her songs is "Jeru-
salem of Gold," which almost overnight became
a national anthem and will long be identified
with a thrilling episode in the history of the
Jewish people. It was the right song, at the
right time. Yet Nomi Shemer has written so
many other top favoritessongs that are on the
lips of every Israelithat it is clear she is a
creative and talented artist.
HAVING SAID al! this. I mast reDort that
her newest song, although widely discussed,
and the subect of critical articles in the press,
is .not performed on Israel radio, is .not in .the
repertoire of any Dopultr singers and is not
available on records or tapes anywhere In Is-
The controversial song is entitled "The "Sar-
dine and the Shark." an1 the allegorical refer-
ence to the present Middle Eastern situation
is all too clear.
In catchy verse, the ballad tells of a little
sardine swimming off the shores of Eilat. or
m*v1n PI Arish. H "-^f< a shark, and of
cowse rmlttelv says "shalom."
On thins leads H another, and to nWcate
the shark, the sardine gives uo his .tail, some
fins fm~i his belly, some scales from has back,
but mitfitHur H|r>s.
IN DESPERATION, the sardine tells !his foe
that for a real and lasting neace he is nrepared
to give everything. Hearing this, the shark
relents. "tt*rs the '"afpc word "neace." bares
his t~mth and swallows the sardine whole. At
bist. flowers, peace an1 love; not a wave nor a
rirtile in the water. The shark swims peace-
fully on the shors of Eilat, or El Arish. and
there is none to disturb him.
If it is true that we are indeed a sardine,
then we are lost anvhow in this world of sharks.
The coT"iarison of lsral to a "iHnerable little
public has not yet heard the song.
A "NEW release from Nomi Shemer should
by bow already have achieved considerable
popularity- We investigated.
:No record store here in Haifa, or in Tel
Aviv, has the song. "Not available they say.
The recording companies are tight-lipped.
But Jj> view of our inouiry. and indication
that her public would welcome her music, she
may rouse herself and put the song on the
market. "The Sardine and the Shark" may yet
make the Hit Parade.
