! Simcha Dinitz to Keynote Pacesetter Dinner
Simcha Dinitz, Israel's
Ambassador to the United
States, will be the keynote
speaker at the Jewish Federation
df South Broward's annual Pace-
setters Dinner, Jan. 15, at the
Diplomat Hotel.
According to JFSB president
Lewis E. Cohn, "We are excited
at the prospect of hearing Simcha
Dinitz discuss Israeli and U.S.
relations. We are honored to have
the Ambassador at our Pace-
setters, which attracts a broad
spectrum of major contributors
to the Combined Jewish Appeal
JlJsrael Emergency Fund cam-
paign."
Cochairmen for the evening are
Dr. Norman Atkin and Herbert
Katz, both past campaign chair-
men and past presidents of the
Jewish Federation.
Prior to assuming the post of
ambassador, Dinitz served for
four years as political advisor and
director of the Prime Minister's
Office in Jerusalem during the
tenure of Golda Meir.
He previously represented his
country in Washington as Min-
ister of Information at the Israel
Embassy in 1968. Among other
international diplomatic posts he
has held, is Minister at the Israel
Embassy in Rome in 1966 and
member of the Israel delegation
to the United Nations from 1964-
65.
Long a familiar figure in
Washington, he pursued both
undergraduate and graduate
studies at Georgetown Uni-
versity. His bachelor's degree
was in foreign service and his
master's in international law.
Returning to Israel in 1958, he
joined the information depart-
ment of the Ministry for Foreign
Affairs. Serving in that ministry
until his appointment to Rome,
he was. for three years, political
secretary to the foreign minister
and director of the Foreign Min-
ister's Bureau.
He has published a number of
works primarily in the fields of
political science and international
law, among them a treatise on
Legal Aspects of the Egyptian
Blockade of the Suez Canal.
Some 600 persons are expected
to attend the Pacesetters Dinner,
which is an integral part of the
1977 campaign. "In order to meet
the human needs of Israel today,
every Jew throughout the world
must make his commitment, both
morally and financially, in order
to assure that as many of these
social service needs as possible
are met," said Dr. Stanley I.
Margulies, campaign chairman.
"While some may call it a
contribution to our campaign, the
leadership of Federation view it
as a commitment our so-called
'Jewish tax.' We have been
fortunate to live in the United
States, and must constantly
remember that, had circum-
stances been different, we, too,
would possibly be living in the
harsh economic reality that
Israelis encounter daily.
"We owe it not only to our-
selves but to our children and our
grandchildren to assure the sur-
vival of Israel as a homeland for
all our peoples throughout the
world.
"That is the entire purpose of
our annual campaign to raise
funds in order to meet needs
locally, nationally and in Israel,"
concluded Margulies.
Religious Leaders Attend Soviet Jewry Conference
Two South Broward religious
leaders, the Rev. George Dunn of
the Westside Baptist Church and
Itabbi Robert Frazin of Temple
Solel, recently returned from
(hie ago where they attended the
Second National Interreligious
nsultation on Soviet Jewry.
The trip was sponsored by the
( ommuniiv Relations Committee
I the Jewish Federation of South
Iroward. The two men were
elected because of their work on
>ehalf of human rights of Soviet
'ewry.
The conference discussed, in
iepth. the "Helsinki Accord,
luman Rights and Religious
.iberty in the USSR
According to Rabbi Frazin,
the conference dealt with more
han Jews and Christians and
heir human rights in the Soviet
nion. It dealt with humanity
.nd the concern with what is
i.ippening to it in the Soviet
inion.
when we no longer care," Rabbi
Frazin said.
The Rev. Dunn described the
activism in the Soviet Union
today.
"It is not the same type of
activism which we, as free people,
are allowed to express. Rather,
Soviet activists, who cannot
carry placards and hold demon-
strations, meet secretly to
discuss their plight and a course
of action. What is most in-
teresting-is that tb-Jews in the
Soviet Unk>n are deeply con-
carnad about the freedom of
Christians. Jews are not the only
people oppressed.
"People of all religions are
being denied their basic human
rights in the Soviet Union.
"The Soviet Union is a sub-
scriber to the Helsinki Accord,
which is a pact between 35
nations. Under the Accord,
freedom of religion, speech and
the dignity of man is supposedly
guaranteed, as well as freedom to
emigrate.
"The Soviet Union is giving
onlv lip service to this Accord.
The United States, which gives
'favored nation status' to Russia
vis-a-vis trade, should force the
carrying out of the Accord," said
the Rev. Dunn, who went on to
give statistics about the repre-
sentative numbers of religions in
the USSR.

Kicks Off Campaign
Shomrai Launches Campaign
REV. DUNN RABBI FRAZIN
"Rabbi Mark Tannenbaum, at
t he end of our 24 hours together
luring the conference which
brought together Christians and
.lews to discuss the plight of
human beings summed it up
\tremely well by stating that we
must refuse to become victims of
Compassion fatigue.'
"People can care about a
ariety of things, but they
mustn't lose sight of the fact that
we all have a basic moral and
thical obligation upon which we
base our existence as Jews and
Christians. That, basically, is the
>elief in the dignity of the human
xsrsonality. This belief must no
>e merely a pious chant.
"We must struggle together to
assert a new vision for the human
family. We must stem the tide of
the growing dehumanization
taking place all over the world,
for something is dying spiritually
Rabbi Zelig Chinitz makes a point with (from left) Dr. Stanley
I. Margulies, Moses Hornstein and Lewis E. Cohn.
The Dec. 11 annual Shomrai
Dinner at the Diplomat Country
Club was, according to Jewish
Federation of South Broward's
campaign chairman Dr. Stanley
I. Margulies, "an excellent
catalyst for our 1977 Combined
Jewish Appeal-Israel Emergency
Fund campaign."
Almost 150 major contributors
attended the dinner, which was
keynoted by Rabbi Zelig Chinitz,
who discussed why the campaign
was so important to the social
and economic survival of Israel.
"Beginning with the Shomrai
dinner, the campaign gets into
high swing. The next plateau will
be reached at the annual Pace-
setters Dinner, which will be held
Jan. 16 at the Diplomat Hotel.
Those attending will represent a
broad spectrum of community
contributors to the campaign and
will set the pace for the coming
months, during which time some
50 functions will be held at
various condominiums, apart-
ments and homes," stated
Margulies.
"This year's campaign theme
We Are One or We Are None,'
holds special meaning for those of
us who recently returned from
the Community Mission to
Israel It is important that all
Jews in the community realize
their responsibility and financial
commitment to assure that Israel
has the backing to guarantee her
survival as a State," concluded
the chairman.
While the Women's Division of
the Jewish Federation of South
Broward is heavily involved in a
variety of educational projects,
during the Combined Jewish
Appeal-Israel Kmergency Fund
campaign its leadership takes an
active part.
Kickoff to the women's
leadership activities was the Dec.
16 Leadership Parlour Luncheon
at the home of Mrs. Moses Horn-
stein, which was held for the
board of directors^
Keynote
speaker was Syl-
via Hassenfeld,
chairman of the
United Jewish
Appeal National
Women's Divi-
sion, who spoke
on the current
social and econo-
mic needs of
Israel and her
people. HASSENFELD
"Toward the purpose of
creating a better life for Israel's
people, and to raising the level of
giving as well as broadening the
vistas of understanding among
the Jewish women of America,
Sylvia Hassenfeld had dedicated
herself." according to Women's
Division Campaign Chairman
JoAnn Katz.
"Mrs. Hassenfeld has been a
constant and dynamic leader of
women's missions to the Jewish
past in Poland, remnant Jewish
life in Rumania and the present
reality in Israel. She led the first
women's mission ever to visit
Auschwitz and made four trips to
Israel in the first year of her
chairmanship. With this type of
leadership, she has become an in-
spiration to all of us who are
deeply involved in Federation
and committed to the State of
Israel as a homeland,'' said Mrs.
Katz.
"It is up to our own leadership
to set the pace for the campaign.
Each one of us must examine our
own commitments and reasons
for support of the campaign and
the needs of Israel. If our leader-
ship is financially committed to
the campaign and its purposes,
then they can pass this on to
others in the spirit that is so
necessary to make this year's
campaign a success," stated Mrs.
Katz.

"The I'kranian Church is now
extinct and was systematically
closed by the Soviet authorities.
Several other churches are also
being slowly eliminated.'' stated
Dunn.
Rabbi Frazin went on to add
that "Jews serve as the
barometer to the world in terms
of persecution. We are rapidly
developing a callousness in this
world for humanity What must
happen is a genesis of a total
community effort on behalf of
Soviet Jewry '
The Rev. Dunn added that
"our task is to make our people
aware Jews are aware, but there
are so few Christians who know
what is going on I see my role as
that of an educator in making all
people aware. If more people
become educated, then we can all
band together and do something
about the terrible conditions that
exist for people in the Soviet
Union."
Discussing the plight of all
peoples in the Soviet Union, the
two clergymen related that there
are some one-half million Bap-
tists who are limited in the prac-
tice of their faith Jews go into
hiding in order to discuss their
Jewish identity There are show-
places which Soviet authorities
keep open, but thev are not indie-

"For example." stated Rabbi
Frazin. "there is only one rabbi in
the Soviet Union for some 3
million Jews."
The Rev Dunn further stated
that there is only one synagogue
in Moscow, serving some 250.000
Jews There are some "0.000
children born to Jews each year
in Moscow who will never know
about their Jewishness.
For many.'' according to
Rabbi Frazin. "the only contact
with Judaism is meeting
American and Israeli Jews
traveling to the Soviet Union.
Some of these bring items to
Soviet Jews and. although being
watched by the secret police, are
permitted to pass these along to
Soviet Jews. If they were
stopped, the Soviet authorities
know that this would be picked
up by the media and show an
image of oppression in the Soviet
Union."

tribute gifts to each Jewish

Temple Solel office.
Dr. Alan Marcovitz o? Boca
Raton, newly elected chairman of
the South Florida Presidents
Council of the Southeast Region
United Synagogue of America,
has announced the first meeting
of the Presidents Council was
held on Sunday. Dec. 12. at
Temple Beth Moshe. North
Miami.
The council is a vehicle for the
presidents of affiliated Con-
servative congregations and key
officers of the synagogues to
meet periodically to discuss
matters of mutual concern. The
council meets three times during
the year at which time subjects of
interest to the congregations in
the South Florida area are
discussed.
Herb Lelchuk. newly elected
vice president of the region, an-
nounced that the subject matter
for this session dealt with mem-
bership involvement.
Several congregational presi-
dents were to have presented
programs, ideas, and activities
which they have utilized in the
last several years to increase the
congregational membership, to
improve the quality of service to
membership, as well as to
develop new leadership for the
congregation. They were to
present both those programs
which succeeded as well as those
which did not.
Rabbi Seymour Friedman,
executive director of the South-
east Region, further stated that
other items on the agenda dealt
with a Cantors Concert in March,
and other similar programs.
more members of the religious
community should become in-
volved and that there should be
more done to foster cooperation
among all faiths.
The two said they feel that
there should be more interaction
among church and synagogue
and their respective congre-
gations. According to F'razin. "If
one is committed in his own
beliefs, then he has nothing to
fear about hearing about other
beliefs."
There is a definite interaction
between the Westside Baptist
Church and Temple Solel. Rabbi
Frazin last year conducted a
seder at the church and the Rev
Dunn has spoken at the syna-
gogue.
Both men stated that they
went to Chicago because they are
deeply committed to human
rights. In the South Broward
community, only a handful,
according to the two. of clergy-
men are involved with interfaith
activities. This must change in
order for the plight of humanity
as a total entity to be recognized.
The two stress the fact that there
must be viable social action com-
mittees in churches and syna-
gogues to make congregants
aware of what is going on with all
faiths today.
Both men agreed that there
must be a central affirmation, as
a result of the conference which

'Area Women Attend Soviet Jewry 'Plea'*
,1
The South Broward com-
munity turned out in force to
hear Prof. Allen Pollack, an
authority on the Soviet Union,
discuss the problems encountered
today by Soviet Jews wishing to
emigrate from their country.
The "Women's Plea on Behalf
of Human Rights for Soviet
Jewry." sponsored by the Jewish
Federation of South Broward's
Community Relations Committee
(CRC), was held at Hollywood's
Temple Sole). Chairman of the
event was Barbara Stein, of the
A viva Chapter of B'nai B'rith
Women.
Besides Prof. Pollack's major
address, those in attendance
heard Rabbi Robert Frazin of
Temple Sole! and the Rev.
^j George Dunn of the Westside
Baptist Church discuss their
recent trip to Chicago to attend
an inter-religious conference on
Soviet Jewry.
Also part of the program were
several exhibits, depicting the
many on-going projects of the
Soviet Jewry Committee of the
CRC as well as a typical day's
meals of a Soviet prisoner.
Lewis E. Cohn, president of the
Jewish Federation of South
Broward, welcomed the group
and discussed the important role
the Soviet Jewry Committee of
Federation's Community Re-
lations Committee is playing. He
also discussed how vital it was
for all Americans to become

involved in the plight ot Soviet
Jews being denied their basic
rights.
Elaine Pittell, chairman of the
Soviet Jewry Committee,
reiterated Conn's statement,
placing heavy emphasis on the
South Broward community
becoming unified in their efforts
on behalf of Soviet Jewry.
According to Prof. Pollack,
"although there are a number of
reasons, including purely per-
sonal ones, why Jews wish to
leave the Soviet Union, the
fundamental reason for the
growth of a large Jewish emi-
gration movement in the USSR
has been the persistent denial to
Jews of equal rights guaranteed
by the Soviet constitution. As a
result, it is impossible for them to
live freely as Jews.
"The situation is also
aggravated by the discrimination
Jews often experience in employ-
ment, education and social life,
and the insecurity they feel as a
result of widespread anti-Zionist
propaganda in the Soviet press
which incites public hostility
against Jews."
Prof. Pollack also discussed
the harassment experienced by
Jews once they have applied for
emigration visas.
"The principal forms of
harassment are demotions, dis-
missals from institutes of higher
education and jobs, and denun-
ciations at public meetings.
"The more persistent and
active applicants have been sub-
jected to arbitrary arrest, have
had their mail links and tele-
phones disconnected, are
sometimes brutally assaulted or
otherwise provoked to provide
excuses for arrest, or are
threatened with deportation from
their home cities.
"The conscription of men into
the armed forces, even when
those concerned are in their
thirties and early forties, is also
used, delaying possible emi-
grations for years afterwards. In
many cities, individual Jews who
applied to leave have been sen-
tenced to heavy terms of im-
prisonment as a deterrent to
others," Pollack said.
In order to put pressure on
Soviet authorities, Pollack dis-
cussed the many things being
done by individuals throughout
the world. This includes sending
letters and telegrams to U.S.
Congressmen and Soviet
authorities showing that the
free world is deeply concerned
about what is happening to
human rights in the Soviet
Union.
As part of the programs of the
CRC Soviet Jewry Committee,
South Broward residents can
"adopt-a-prisoner" and send
letters to let each know that
someone cares. Those traveling
to the Soviet Union can make im-
portant contacts, and the com-
mittee briefs interested in-
dividuals.
Prof. Pollack stressed the
importance of holding "pleas"
such as the one he was ad-
dressing.
"These pleas and rallies do
have an impact on the Soviet
government, and they boost the
morale of Soviet Jews who need
to know that Americans care and
are concerned. It is especially im-
portant to educate the media,
which play an important role in
getting the message across,"
Pollack stated.

A Chanukah Festival
A Chanukah Festival on Thursday night, Dec. 16. at the
Theatre of the Performing Arts will not only celebrate this
ancient Jewish holiday.
It will also hail the commanders of the military medical
team that accompanied Israel's heroic raiders who entered
Uganda last July 4 and rescued Palestinian terrorist
hostages held at Entebbe in the name of forcing Israel to
release some of the leading Arab terrorists now held in
Israeli prisons.
The commanders of the medical team will be at the
Chanukah Festival, which is under the auspices of the
American Red Magen David, and Miaroians will have the
opportunity to greet and applaud their heroic deed.
Purpose of the function is to help support the Blood
Bank of American Red Magen David.
Chanukah and the Entebbe raid are part of the same
fabric Israels traditional struggle for religious
freedom: in the ancient days under Mattathias against the
Graeco-Assyrians, and last July 4 under Israel's modern
hero-raiders against Palestinian terrorists.
We can think of no more worthy setting for a Chanukah
Festival.
Bonds Cash Crucial
It is imperative that members of the Jewish com-
munity, who have pledged commitments to stand by
Israel, redeem their commitments by immediate cash pay-
ments for their outstanding Israel Bond purchases.
Any examination of the situation in Israel will confirm
the central role which Israel Bonds has played in the past
25 yean in reinforcing the economy of Israel and enabling
it to withstand the shocks and impact of the dangers and
crises threatening its existence from the earliest days of
its independence.
It is a notable measure of the concern and under-
standing of American and Canadian Jewry that close to
S3.5 billion, of which 11.5 billion has already been repaid.
has been channeled into every phase of Israel's economy
through the--ale of Israel Bonds since 1951.
Under the most difficult circumstances, the people of
Urael put this money to work with the resourcefulness
and vision that have made it poibi for Israel to become
one of the fastest growing of the developing countries in
the entire world.
This partnership Ix-tween us and the people of Israel
continues to face the test of the critical problems of the
present unsettled situation which calls for the immediate
conversion of outstanding Israel Bond commitments into
cash
Military strength alone cannot preserve Israel or
guarantee its future unless it is backed up by economic
strength which more than any other single element
represents a truly solid foundation for Israels future.
U.S. Jews in the Year 2000
PLO Nest Uncovered
By JON FEDLER
BONN -
Details of activities of a
network of German PLO
sympathizers have come to
light following the arrest
last month in Hamburg of
Udo Albrecht, 36, a right-
wing extremist who is also
a PLO "General." Accord-
ing to unconfirmed reports,
Albrecht met a representa-
tive of PLO chief Yasir
Arafat in Zurich a day
before his arrest and re-
ceived $1.2 million for PLO
arms purchases.
When arrested, he had
80.000 Swiss Francs on him
and a bank withdrawal re-
ceipt for a further 14.000
Francs.
ALBRECHT allegedly
masterminded a recent bank
robbery and gave S10.000 in
stolen currency to the PLO. He is
also said to have recruited 520
Germans, including 60 women,
for FLO training for attacks on
Israel
Albrecht is being held in
solitary confinement in a prison
organization. At the tune of his
arrest he was carrying a
machinegun. several pistols, a
hand grenade, several PLO
identity cards, forged passports
and cover names and telephone
numbers for use in Beirut. Tripoli
and Cairo.
THE ADDRESS by Dr. Eli
Ginzberg before a meeting of the
policy making National Exec-
utive Council of the American
Jewish Committee in Dallas is
especially interesting because it
makes a broad-ranging prediction
about the socio-economic status
of American Jews by the year
2000.
At the same time, as a nor-
therner. Ginzberg s views are un-
questionably regional and
therefore dearly miss the boat so
far as Jews generally are con-
cerned.
GINZBERG DOES acknowl-
edge "the rapid growth of the
South and Southwest, with their
relatively sparse Jewish popu-
lations, and the retardation in the
rate of growth in the North.
where most Jews are con-
centrated"
In terms of these demoeraphic
Mindlin
changes, he concedes that they
will operate as deterrents to
further economic improvement of
the American Jewish community
as a totality.
But Ginzberg minimizes the
meaning of his concession,
preferring to detail the rise of
first, second and third generation
American Jews to socio-economic
respectability and power in the

early part of the twentieth
century as if this spectacular
success would, of its own mo-
mentum, make a similar mark on
the twenty-first.
DR. GINZBERG is a professor
of economics at Columbia Uni-
versity and the chairman of the
National Commission for Man-
power Policy. These are no mean
credentials. But they are not a
deterrent to his regionalism.
Nor do they mitigate his
sectarianism which suggests
that, on the basis of past Jewish
experience. Jews will continue to
behave socio-economic ally and
otherwise as they always have
before.
It would appear that the levels
of increasingly enthusiastk
Jewish contribution over the
years to the burgeoning
American divorce rate, al-
coholism and drug addiction
should long ago have put a
damper on the ancient socio-
logical cliche that Jews make the
best husbands, the best mothers,
the best breadwinners in
short, that Jews, as a conse-
quence of their exilic experience,
*ui generis constitute an innate
socio-economic elite.
WHAT IS more, the unhappy
statistics reflecting the rising fre-
quency in Jewish intermarriage
further removes American Jews
from an earlier twentieth century
success norm.
And so. predictions of a
continuing Jewish anstm based
on such norms are romantic and
sentimental at best and mis-
leading at worst.
One particularly unhappy as-
pect of (iinzberg's failure to deal
with changing American Jewish
demography on more than a
casual basis is that it makes pre
dictions about the "above
average" Jewish experience while
failing to acknowledge the
growing number of Jews who arc
below average economically or
even downright poverty-stricken
INSTEAD OF speeches that
detail the rise to success of first.

Repulsive Post-Election Aspects
(me of the more repulsive
aspects of post-election analyses
is the determination by second

racial, ethnic or religious group
was responsible for victory or
defeat, as is sometimes the case
Often good fun in the doldrums

speculation just as often assumes
overtones which is not such good

This may possibly be over-

claimed and the claim carefully
annotated, it was the massive
black vote which provided the
margin of Jimmy Carters vic-
tory, or the return of the labor
vote from its Nixonian aberration
in 1972. one looks at the statis-
tical evidence with the studied
calm it deserves.
ON THE other hand, a head
line like "Carter Owes Presiden-
tial Win to Protestants." is
bound to disturb, whether ac-
curate or not. The fact that
another article on another day
pointed up the good news that
there will be fewer WASPs in the
next Congress does not amelior-
ate the impact of the first, since
one of President-elect Carter's
handicaps among Jews was the
fear of his Southern Baptist
background and his "horn-again"
publicity.

spected magazine. Christianity

The Reign in Spain
Spanish Gov'L,
Worried Arabs
Won t Like it, Snub Jewish Meet
MADRID (JTA) -
The Spanish government
abruptly canceled the
official welcome it was to
have extended to the open-
ing of the World Jewish
Congress European Exec-
utive meeting here Sunday
night without explanation.
As a result of the unex-
pected move, official sour-
ces expressed doubt today
that King Juan Carlos I
would receive the dele-
gation of WJC leaders to
whom an audience was to
have been granted at the
Royal Palace.
These developments
seriously marred the first
international Jewish
*. >
gathering ever to be held in
Spain, an event that Jewish
leaders had hailed as the
beginning of an historic
reconciliation between
Spain and the Jewish
people.
THE MEETING was attended
by 13 delegations from Western
European countries, Rumania
and Yugoslavia and, for the first
time, observers representing the
Jewish communities of East Ger-
many Poland, Czechoslovakia
and Hungary.
The last minute snub was
attributed to heavy pressure
from the Arab states. Deputy
Minister of Justice, Rafael Men-
dizabal, was to have greeted the
Jewish delegations on behalf of
the Spanish government. Two
hours before the opening of the
meeting, he telephoned Philip
Hu vas, president of the Madrid
Jewish community, to say he
would not be able to attend
because he was "otherwise en-
gaged."
Mendizabal gave no other ex-
planation and expressed no
regrets.
LORD FISHER of Camden,
chairman of the European Exec-
utive of the WJC and president of
the Board of Deputies of British
Jews, voiced "deep regrets" in
his address to the opening
session. He stressed that
"countries, as we can testify, can
have friendly relations with both
the Arabs and the Jews."
He expressed hope that the
"new Spain" now emerging will
establish diplomatic relations
with Israel and will "not cast its
vote at the UN or at UNESCO
against the vital interests of the
Jewish people."
Spanish officials said privately
here that Mendizabal's atten-
dance at the WJC meeting was
canceled because of the wide-
spread advance publicity sur-
rounding the event and the
political implications attributed
to it by the press and other
sources. However, the decision
was taken by Foreign Minister
Marcellino Orega after a meeting
Monday with Arab envoys who
protested plans for an official
welcome.

second and third generation
American Jews at the beginning
of this century, it would have
been far more helpful for Ginz-
berg to detail the cyclical
American Jewish experience in
which so many of these socio-
economic "successes" burned
themselves out by the mid-1950s,
and are languishing today in
the kind of deprivation that
characterized their own begin-
nings, or the beginnings of their
parents and grandparents, in
their flight from European or
American ghetto oppression.
Certainly, there should be no
lack of evidence of this in the
El Al Sets World Record
NEW YORK (JTA) El Al achieved the trans-
Atlantic flight time world record with the New York to London
flight on Dec. 2 in 5 hours and 14 minutes, it was reported by
Amos Turin, senior vice president of El Al in New York. The
previous record, he said, was 5 hours and 25 minutes. El Al
flight 016. a Boeing 747. was piloted by Capt. I^eslie Easter-
man.
How Jewish Leaders
And PLO First Met
WASHINGTON (JTA) The two Palestine-
Liberation Organization officials who came to the United
States ostensibly to open a propaganda office in
Washington met with small groups of Jews in New York
and Washington late last month and sought to give an
impression that the terrorist organization is moderating
its view toward Israel.
The officials Sabri
Jiryis and Issa Staawi,
both Palestinians first
met with seven or eight
Jews at a New York hotel
at the invitation of the
Arabs. About a week later,
on Nov. 15. the pair lun-
ched with five other Jews at
the invitation of Tartt Bell,
director of the American
Friends Service Commit-
tee*s Washington public
affairs program, at the
Committee's quarters.
THOSE INVITED to the two
gatherings were mainly officials,
some of high rank, of major
Jewish organizations, but several
emphasized to the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that they at-
tended as individuals and not as
representatives of their
organizations.
PLO officials had met
previously in Paris with non-
official but politically active
Israelis
Hell declined to go into details
about the meeting or to identify
those present He said he was
"delighted to hear signals of
change in the position of the
PLO," which he described as
being aimed at a two-state
solution and acceptance of a
"secure Israel."
The signals, he said, came from
"newspapers and elsewhere. He
also said the signals represented
the position the two PIX) officials
"are taking."
SINCE U.S. policy is not to
have official contacts with the
PLO. whose charter calls for
Israel's destruction, and the
Israeli government has vowed
never to have dealings with it
regardless of any change it might
make in its public position, Jews
available for interviews with JTA
were asked why they decided to
meet with the PLO officials.
"It was useful for us to hear
what they had to say and to tell
them what we think," one
replied. Another commented that
since the Friends Committee
issued the invitation, it was
courteous to accept and not reject
out of hand an attempt at a con-
ciliatory approach.
AT THE Washington meeting.
ITA was told, the PLO officials
not only did not bring up their
publicly stated mission of
>pening an office hen' but denied
that was their purpose
When we asked are vou going
to open an office hare, i was told
no. *,. have utti.es in New York
City and Beirut.' They lied to us
because the l'l.O registered a few
days later at the Justice Depart-
ment to open an office here
North, where Prof. Ginzberg
works and lives. Or should there
be. he would be able to find a
lion's share of it here in the
South, where a huge Jewish
population has emerged hi the
last quarter-century that, inci-
dentally, puts to serious question
his observation about "the South
and the Southwest, with their
relatively sparse (italics mine)
Jewish populations."
The state of their hopelessness,
despair, even squalor, speaks far
more eloquently and truthfully
than the optimistic trends Ginz-
berg predicts for Jews generally
by the year 2000 and, par-
ticularly, when set against the
contrasting wealth of their Dade.
Broward and Palm Beach
kinsmen.
IN LINE with his optimism.
Ginzberg sees Jewish upward
mobility based on a decline in
religious discrimination. Ginz-
berg's observation is doubtlessly
correct.
But. again, it is either regional
and sectarian; or else, it is stuck .
somewhere in a groove of mid-
twentieth century history that
fails to take cognizance of more
recent Jewish experience.
The successful battle against
racial and religious discrim-
ination, in both higher education
and jobs, has yielded to the kind
of bitter reverse discrimination
that is even now. for example,
tearing the Universitv of Califor-
nia School of Medicine apart
DISCRIMINATION against
JeWI because they are Jewish has
now given rise to discrimination
against .lews l>e<-ause they are
not black or oriental or Indian:
or. if they are men. t>ecause they
are not women.
But Ginsberg's failure to deal
with this issue as it expresses
itself as a reality today, not a
quarter- or half-century ago, is
less damaging than his failure to
recognize the implications of the
sociological change in higher
education generally and pro-
fessional training specifically.
He acknowledges that nor-
thern Jews, "especially in New
York City." had more and better
educational facilities available to
them, and "many gained access
to the professions of medicine,
law accounting and teaching."
HE ALSO acknowledges that
the "current and prospective
over-supply of college-trained
persons would slow the
progress of many young Jews"
entering the labor force by the
year 2000.
But Ginzberg does not relate
the two experiences the past
and the present, and what it por-
tends for the future, other than
that Jews might find it harder to
establish a twenty-first century
arisliu than their parents and
grandparents did in the twen-
tieth.
The fact is that there are
profound socio-economic changes
in the wings that will seriously
affect professions like medicine
and law in which Jews have been
traditionally over-represented.
THE FACT is that these
" changes have little or nothing to "
do with Gfauberg'a palliative
explanation of a possible Jewish
recession "a sof, American
economy that is unable to
provide jobs and earning oppor-
tunities for a sizable proportion
of the population."

diction along with other
Americans they will have to face
a revolutionized view of the pro-
fessions in which they were once
so predominant.
Will. say. medicine he as
economically attractive in 2025
as it was in 1975? This is a ques-
tion having little if anything to
do with softness in the economy,
but it may well bear on a growing
decline in interest, Jewish and
non-Jewish, in medicine as a pro- ,
fession during the next half-
century.
WHAT I am suggesting here is
that the socio-economic changes
Ginzberg ignored in the bur-
geoning years of first, second and
third generation Jewish
Americans in this century that
have brought so many of them to
poverty and despair is a har-
binger of similar changes he
ignores as a possibility by the
year 2000. other than to hint at
"a soft American economy."
This narrow view of American
Jewish alternatives in the next
quarter-century is the alter ego of
his narrow view of a "declining
discrimination" to which 1 have
already referred.
A far more realistic, and
beneficial, view of American
Jewish alternatives in the years
. ahead would not emphasi/.t- the
concept of a Jewish ariitm at all.
It would not see a hopeful repeat
of the past in the future.

WASHINGTON The
clamor for reforms on Capitol Hill
will be louder next year. It begins
this week inside the House
Democratic Caucus. By next
month, it will spread to the
Senate.
The younger members hope to
reduce the power of their seniors
and to streamline the cumber-
some committee system. In the
past, the committees of Congress
have been controlled by the
elders, regardless of their ability,
their honesty or their possible
senility.
THE SENIORITY system has
produced chairmen who are not
representative of the country's
geography, its politics or its
people. They are often out of step
with the times and with the
majority of their own members.
Yet these chairmen are able to
control the flow of legislation
through their committees.
Two years ago, the young
turks in the House overthrew
three powerful committee chair-
men. The casualties were Ways
and Means Chairman Wilbur
Mills, Ranking Chairman Wright
Patman and Armed Services
Chairman F. Edward Hebert.
But the Senate committee
chairmen escaped the reform
movement. They may not be so
lucky this time. A task force,
headed by Sen. Adlai Stevenson
il).. 111.), has been conducting a
study of the Senate's committee
system. It has recommended
cutting in half the number of
standing committees and limit-
ing senators to one chairmanship
apiece.
THIS WILL reduce the power
of the old curmudgeons who have
dominated the Senate in the past.
The seniority system has often
held back the bright young men
whose leadership is needed in
these swift-moving times. This
may now change in the Seante.
The House Democratic Caucus
is taking up a number of reforms
this week. The creaking law-
making machinery is in desperate
need of an overhaul. It would be
too much to expect that the over-
haul will be complete.
Hut some of the old men. who
march in slow cadence behind the
nation, may be pushed aside.
UNKNOWN OIL Organization:
There is ominous evidence that
the Western world is on the edge
of an economic slump. The key to
it is oil. On Dec. 15, the Organ-
ization of Petroleum Exporting
Countries will meet in Qatar to
consider a price increase.
Another big boost in world oil
prices would send other prices
soaring. Consumers would be
compelled to cut down on their
purchases. This would cause pro-
duction to drop. Many econ-
omists believe an oil price rise
would create serious commercial
and political strains throughout
the non-Communist world.
So all the world will be wat-
ching OPEC on Dec. 15. But few
people are paying attention to
another oil organization. It's
called the International Energy
Agency. Its participants are the
giant international oil companies.
OSTENSIBLY, the IEA was
established to combat the eco-
nomic effects of another oil em-
bargo. For two years, more than
30 oil companies have been
holding secret meetings. The
U.S. companies have been
granted anti-trust exemptions to
participate.
The secret meetings usually
are held at the headquarters of
some international oil consortium
such as Exxon or Shell. Sensitive
information about supply and
demand is exchanged. The
purpose, supposedly, is to
prepare contingency plans for
iealing with another world oil
crisis.
The meetings are monitored by
federal antitrust lawyers, and
written records are kept of the
discussions. But the gatherings
are altogether too secretive for
comfort. The government's anti-
trust watchdogs have admitted
to us that they can't monitor
what the oil executives say to one
another outside the conference
halls.
THE OILMEN have been put
on the honor system. But they
have always considered it honor-
able to squeeze the highest
possible profits out of the paying
public. As for written records,
they aren't available to the
public.
Sources familiar with the setup
warn that it is dangerous. The
international oil giants are able to
gauge one another's oil reserves
and transportation capabilities.
This could give them total
control over the Western world's
oil supplies.
The IEA hasn't violated any
anti-monopoly laws. But like
OPEC, its manipulations bear
close watching.
BOYCOTTERS BENEFIT:
President Ford has publicly criti-
cized Arab boycott of firms which
deal with Israel, but we have
learned that his administration
has subsidized the boycott with
millions of dollars.
Spokesmen for both federal
agencies told us that they will
deny future requests for as-
sistance if the transaction in-
volves firms which have complied
with the boycott.

Soviet 'Dropout' Rate Soars
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) The rate of dropouts of
Soviet Jews leaving the USSR with Israeli visas soared to
59 percent last month, the highest since April when the
dropout rate hit a record high of 63 percent, according to
figures released Nov. 10 by the Jewish Agency's im-
migration and absorption department.
The figures showed that 730 Russian Jews who
reached Vienna in October decided to go to countries other
than Israel. In September, the number of dropouts was
509, about 49 percent of the Soviet Jewish emigres in
Vienna.
THE DROPOUT rate last
month was as high as 90 percent
among emigrants from Odessa
and Kharkov, the Jewish Agency
report said. The dropout phe-
nomenon is a source of serious
concern in aiiya circles here.
It is the subject of ongoing
discussions in New York where
various approaches to the prob-
lem are being considered by a
special committee of eight con-
sisting of Israeli government and
Jewish Agency representatives
and representatives of various
international Jewish
organizations. _______.
ALIYA SOURCES here claim
that the high number of dropouts
reflects deliberate Soviet policy
to grant exit visas to Jews with
the least Jewish identity in order
to increase the dropout figure and
discredit the immigration
movement.
The Jewish Agency also dis-
closed that overall immigration
in October amounted to 1,616,
down by 300 from the September
figure of 1,927. October saw a
substantial decrease of aliya from
all regions except Latin America
and Western Europe.

Go on Strike
JERUSALEM (JTA, -
About 16,000 engineers went on
strike last week to protest the
stalemate in the wage
negotiations. They warned that if
there was no progress, they
would call a general strike of un-
limited duration.
Despite the strike, no
disturbances were reported in the
operation of public services.
WORKERS IN so-called
"vital'' services observed back-
to-work orders, but their striking
colleagues said they would not
allow them to work, even if it
meant violating the law.

South Africa has every-

South Africa, in fact, has
more of just about every-
thing than just about
anywhere.
But the amazing thing is
that a vacation in this vaca-
tion wonderland is compcti-
tively priced with the usual
winter destinations. And it
compares quite favorably
with cruises.
Sure, the plane fare is
more, but your land arrange
ments will more than make
up for it. A superior hotel in
South Africa will cost you
less than S20 a night with a
full English breakfast. Our best
restaurants are priced like some
coffee shops.
So the bottom line on an adventure
in South Africa compares
wiih the tariff on some far
more mundane vacations.
surf you'll ever need.
But, in contrast to the re-
sorts that offer precious little
else, we offer you fantastic
scenery, fascinating game
parks, frolicking night life
and some of the most fabu-
lous food and wine in the
world.
Now that you've heard

Anti-Israel Sentiment Rears
Head at Basketball Assn. Meet
By HASKELL COHEN
NEW YORK (JTA) Anti
Israel sentiment in sport, once
again, reared its ugly head over
the weekend at the meeting of the
Federation of International Bas-
ketball Associations conducted
at Munich. Germany, to de-
termine sites and dates for the
final Kuropean Cup playoffs
involving six teams, including
Maccabi Tel Aviv.
At the sessions in Munich the
six teams in attendance, com-
prised of CSK of the Soviet
Union. Real Madrid of Spain.
Mobil Girgi of Italy. Maccabi Tel
Aviv. Spartak Brno of Czecho-
slovakia and Racing Mailines of
Belgium, conferred to complete
anangements for the Cup finals.
WHEN IT came to a
discussion of sites, the CSK and
Spartak Brno teams immediately
protested playing Israel in Tel
Aviv and instead forfeited their
respective games to the Israeli
five. The return games between
Israel and these Soviet and
Czechoslovak quintets will be
played Feb. IS and 19 in Ant-
werp. Belgium, an unusual
procedure.
In former years, when a team
reaching the finals in Kuropean
Cup plav refused to go throw*
with a home-and-home game
commitment, the team was im-
mediately dropped from the com-
petition and furthermore was
suspended from European Cup
participation the following year.
APPARENTLY the new
executive secretary. Boris
Stankovic of Yugoslavia, a friend*"
of this writer who is sympathetic
to Israel, was fearful of reper-
cussions back home in the event
he arbitrarily suspended the
Soviet and Czechoslovakian fives
from Cup play next vear.

Vow War You're Not Prepared For'
PLO Reps Meet With
Top Jewish Leaders
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) A B'nai B'rith of-
ficial's 1,500-word memo-
randum on a secret meeting
here Nov. 15 between two
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization representatives
and five Washington Jews
reports that the terrorist
organization's present aims
envision its takeover of
Jordan and inducing the
American Jewish com-
munity to move the Israeli
government into agreeing
to Palestinian and Jewish
states "in Palestine."
According to a copy of
the memorandum obtained
by the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, it was prepared on
the day after the meeting
by Herman Edelsberg, re-
cently retired director of
B'nai B'rith's International
Council and now a con-
sultant to it, who was one
of those present at the
meeting.
EDELSBERG confirmed to
JTA that he wrote the paper.
Copies are understood to have
been provided to the State De-
partment, the Israel Embassy,
the American Jewish Committee
and top B'nai B'rith officials.
The meeting here and those by
seven or eight Jews with the
same PLO representatives in
New York and by other PLO
officials with non-official Israelis
in Paris have been criticized as
lending both respectability and
credibility to the terrorist
organization.
The critics pointed out that the
Israeli government will not deal
with the PLO under any circum-
stances while the U.S. official
position is refusal to have "sub-
stantive" contacts with it until it

Our New Secretary Of State
Vance Will Not
Be a Frontline
Negotiator a La
Henry Kissinger
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA) Cyrus Roberts Vance,
the New York corporate lawyer designated by President-
Elect Jimmy Carter to be the forthcoming Secretary of
State, will not be the front-line negotiator in the Arab-
Israeli conflict or other international situations in the
style of Henry A. Kissinger.
"When necessary," Vance has emphasized, he will be a
"personal negotiator," but his method when he takes
charge at the State Department after inauguration day on
Jan. 20 will be to "delegate" negotiations to "competent
negotiators" before "I get involved."
RESPONDING to questions last Friday at the news conference in
Plains, Ga.. at which Carter announced his designation, Vance said he
saw "some encouraging signs at this point" in the statements eman-
ating from the Middle East.
He said that he would give attention to them "at a very early
point." but he asked to "beg off" from making substantive comment
at this time about that question "about the substance" of whether the
Palestine Liberation Organization should participate in a Geneva
conference.
It would be "Inappropriate" for him to do so. Vance said, before he
meets with Kissinger. He also stressed in responding to a question
that the "underlying principle" of his foreign policy "must be deep
concern for human rights."
FOLLOWING upon Vance's responses. Carter noted that "most
parties" in the Middle East have expressed themselves "privately and
publicly" and in the next several months" it would be appropriate for
Vance to spend a great deal of time with Kissinger to "get advice and
counsel" from him "and others" about the Mideast situation.
Carter said he has talked with Kissinger about "unpublished
aspects" of the Mideast and that he would call on Kissinger for his
"assessment" of unofficial or private talks but that he has no plans for
that now.
Vance is generally described here as a competent administrator with
a thorough understanding of the workings of the U.S. foreign affairs
establishment from his service as counsel for the Senate Armed Ser-
vices and Space and Aeronautical Committees in the late years of the
Eisenhower Administration, as Secretary of the Army and Under-
secretary of Defense for President Johnson and as a special envoy in
the Cyprus, Korean and Vietnam situations after that.
WHILE HIS association with problems of the Arab-Israeli conflict
is limited, and those interviewed about him confessed they had little
knowledge of that aspect of his thinking, Vance has had contact with
the situation.
He was Undersecretary of Defense at the time of the Six-Day War
and he has met with Israeli Premier Yitzhak Rabin.
Late last May. during the Presidential primary campaign, he said
on WNBC-TV that the U.S. should go to war if that were necessary to
preserve the State of Israel.
".""'.'

he had interned in Cleveland and
Columbus hospitals in the six-
ties.
The State Department advises
he is a member of the Fatah
Revolutionary Council. Jiryis. a
graduate of Hebrew University
and chief of the American
Department of the PLO research
office in Beirut, participated
substantially."
According to the Edelsberg
paper, "Bell had told us that the
FLO representatives were in
Washington to explore the ad-
visability of opening an office,
but Sartawi said vaguely at the
end of the conversation that they
already had an office repre-
sentative? in Washington and
in other cities, as well as the
office in New York."
SARTAWI SAID he and
Jiryis "had come to the United
States to seek support for the
PLO's present peace efforts," the
memorandum continued. "The
PLO. he said, accepts the prin-
ciple of a Jewish State in Pales-
tine' alongside a Palestinian state
composed of the West Bank,
Gaza, and some small pieces of
land now held by Syria and
Egypt"
When asked why the PLO
doesn't make public this "official
policy." the memorandum said
"Sartawi replied that the recog-
nition of Israel was the PLO's
trump card, and it would not give
it up without getting something
in return. The PLO was prepared
to implement this policy at the
bargaining table."
"I said recognition of Israel
was not a trump card; it did not
even warrant any Israeli con-
cessions." Edelsberg quoted
himself in his memorandum.
"THE REAL PLO trump card
would be the conduct of a future
Palestinian entity would it live
in peace or become a revanchist
force, first moving against
Jordan and then against Israel.
Sartawi and Jiryis both made no
bones about their purpose to take
over Jordan. Sartawi inter-
rupting

to say "of course Jor-
When the conversation cen-
tered on the October meeting it
Paris, the memorandum noted,
Sartawi said "the PLO has no
hope that Israeli dovea can in-
fluence their government; the
hawks are in full control. Hi*
hope is that the American Jewish
community will do it."
A suggestion that a public
declaration by the PLO would
help Israeli dovea in their cam-
paign "did not seem to imprest
the Palestinians." Edelsberg
observed.
"Sartawi made an extended
statement about the PLO's desin
for peace and the urgent need f<
peace: otherwise there will
another war," the memorandu:
reported.
IT THEN said Sartawi add.
that "the next war will see tl

weapons the Egyptians had for
which Israel had no defense
'Some of my friends who an
Israeli officers have admitted
that to me.' and the war after
that will probably be an atomic
war. Israel already has 14 to If
atomic bombs."
When Sartawi was interruptel
with the question, "Are yoji
threatening another war?",
memorandum co
"Sartawi replied coolly
not threatening anything. I am
analyzing the situation."
Sartawi suggested as thf
meeting was breaking up that
"he had not found the co-
operation he had sought in our
meeting." that "he had had a
better meeting in New York with
a Jewish group. He was sorry il
anything he had said had raied

The meeting in New York, held
in a private home on Nov. 1. is
understood to have been spon-
sored by a peace group of
Vietnam War origin. One of those
present was Dr. George Gruen,
who specializes in Middle East
affairs for the American Jewish
Committee in New York.
He said the "ground rules" for
the meeting included a ban on
disclosure of the names of those
attending. He stressed, as had
others in Washington, that he
attended not as an official of his
organization but as an individual.
"DR. SARTAWI, fashionably

TEL AVIV (JTA) Long
columns of Israeli infantry, artil-
lery and armored units continued
to stream into the region border-
ing southern Lebanon in what
was officially described aa a pre-
cautionary movement against a
possible threat from Syrian
forces or terrorists in Lebanon.
The convoys of tank carriers,
field guns and foot soldiers
snaked over the winding
mountain roads all day through
freezing winter rains, high winds
and fog.
FIELD ENGINEERS were
seen preparing encampments for
the arriving reinforcements.
Other units are already dug in.
The deployment was described
by eye-witnesses as the largest
ever undertaken by the Israeli
army in the Lebanese border
region. Settlers in the north ex-
pressed satisfaction and a new
sense of security.

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
It is disturbing to me to read in
the news that in more than six
years the United State Govern-
ment volunteered the opinion of
our own representative in the
United Nations, and that our own
Government did not approve of
Israeli settlement in territories
under dispute. To me this is
undermining the negotiating
position of our only Democratic
ally in the Middle East. At no
time could this happen before or
during the election period.
Now, since the Republicans
lost to the Democrats, the story
is another song. The same man.
Ambassador William Scranton, a
stalwart Rockefeller supporter
for President, at the direction of
the White House and President
Gerald Ford, also Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger, voted
with the Arabs against Israel's
settlement of land won in 1967. I
think it is a fine act of vengeance
in NovemDer, since in May it
would have been dangerous to so
instruct your representative in
the United Nations, before an
election. To me it is hypocrisy in
a neat way.
In the future, we citizens of the
free United States will think
three times before we vote or
support any politician before
election, on their false promises.
The campaign oratory is peeled
off with the bumperstickers after
election night. The world has the
right to think that our election
campaigns are meaningless exer-
cises in damagoguery. Now that
all that foolishness is out of the
way, we can go back to our
secret-diplomatic stand as if
nothing was meant to live up to.
The Ford Kissinger Dole
failure to grasp, is the reason
conservative eyes were wet on the
election night. The falsehood of
the apology in the State Depart-
ment for Ambassador Scranton's
anti-Israel vote is "political" and
a bunch of lies.
So far Israel gave up
everything that is important for
the defense of her country. Egypt
and Syria never even promised to
ease their false, malicious oropa-

ganda against Israel. They never
gave Israel any assurance that
they, Egypt and Syria, will co-

In my opinion, for Israel to
give up new territories would be
suicide either in the Gaza or the
Golan, because it is so near the
Israeli important cities and
farmers, which the enemy can
easily attack.
Let us forget the false promises
of the past and also the lame

for the real friends in the Amer-

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
After reading yonr two leading
editorials in the Dec. 3 issue, all I
could do is to quote you and say
"wow."
In the first editorial headed
"Talk About Expediency," you
remind us of the heartwarming
things President Ford stated
about Israel right up to Nov. 2
and then he and Kissinger
reneged at the United Nations
meeting in which the United
States joined with other coun-
tries in censuring Israel.
"And Then Came Carter"
heads the next editorial. It points
out that Jimmy Carter was re-
minded of the decision to move
the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv
to Jerusalem but he replied that
he wasn't sure about it at all.
This idea was affirmed as part of
the Democratic Party platform
but Carter stated that he was not
committed to that part at this
point.
Why didn't Carter state this
when many of our people were
raising funds for his campaign?
The point is that from an eco-
nomic and military standpoint
Israel must defend its own
people, here and abroad.

India Cites Dr. Salk
WASHINGTON (JTA) Dr. Jonas Salk. the New
York-born physician and scientist who in 1954 developed the
anti-polio vaccine which bears his name, has been given the
Jawaharlal Nehru Award by the Indian government.
The Indian Embassy here reported that the award to Salk
is in "recognition of his outstanding services to the study of
biological and health sciences and to the alleviation of human
suffering, which have significantly enhanced the welfare of the
present and future generations."
IN RESPONSE to a question from the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency. Salk. who is director of the Salk Institute for Bio-
logical Studies in San Diego, Calif., said he expected to go to
New Delhi early next year to accept the award. It carries
$13,740 in cash and a citation. They will be presented at a
special ceremony.
Holland Says 'No'
AMSTERDAM (JTA) A spokesman for the Dutch
Foreign Ministry, reacting to reports that following the
opening of a Palestine Liberation Organization office in
Brussels, the PLO would shortly also open an office in The
Netherlands, said that no such request had been made by the
PLO.
The standpoint of the Dutch government in this issue
remains unchanged, he said. Netherlands Foreign Minister
Max Van Der Stoel some time ago, replying to a parliamentary
question, stated that the Dutch government will not allow the
PLO in The Netherlands as long as the organization does not
recognize the right of Israel to exist.

"In the year that king Uzziah

His train filled the temple. Above
Him stood the seraphim; each
one had six wings: with twain he

he covered his feet, and with
twain he did fly. And one called
unto another, and said: Holy,

The whole earth is full of His
glory" (Isaiah 6:1.2, 3).
The Soncino publication of the
Book of Isaiah has the following
comment on verse 3.
"Holy. The three-fold repe-
tition indicates the superlative
degree of holiness. Holy in the
highest heaven, holy upon the
earth, holy forever and ever ."
(p.29).
The Traveler's Guide to Jewish
Landmarks of Europe, by
Bernard Postal and Samuel H.
Abramson. has a picture of this
monument and the following
paragraph:
"Prague. Charles Bridge, a
historic crossing of the Vltava
River linking the Old Town and
the main part of the city, has.
about one-third of the way
across, a monument to Jewish
degradation in the form of a giant
crucifix surrounded by huge
gilded Hebrew letters spelling
out the traditional Hebrew
sanctification. 'Kadosh,
Kadosh, Kadosh, Adonai
Tzvuoth (Holy. Holy, Holy is the
Lord of Host si'
A plaque in scribed in Latin,
German, and Czech, affixed to
the base of the crucifix, explains
this extraordinary sight. It
appears that in 1609 a Jew was
accused of desecrating the cruci-
fix and as punishment the ghetto
community was compelled to pay
for affixing the Hebrew words in
letters of gold. The gold has long
since vanished, having been
stolen during the German oc-
cupation" (p.29).
I could find very little ad-
ditional authoritative informa-
tion. I am therefore writing to the
Alte-Neue Schul (Old-New Syna-
gogue) in Prague for more in-
formation. If any of the readers of
this column have any additional
information or documents I will
appreciate it if you will com-
municate with me and I will print
it in a future column.

By Greer Fay Cashman
Overview of Mission
A boy who has his Bar M it
zvah at the age of 13 accepts this
special event in his life, not as a
rule out of choice, but because his
parents have thrust it upon him.
When the still childish falsetto
rings out with the statement.
"Today. I am a man." the quaver
of doubt is easy to detect.
Not all Jewish parents force
their sons into a Bar Mitzvah
ceremony. Some don't deem it
important: and others live too far
away from the mainstream of
Jewish life.
Some of these boys who missed
out at 13. make a conscious
decision in later life to declare
their responsibility to themselves
and to their people.
A typical example is Dr. Israel
Budasoff of Hollywood, formerly
of Argentina.
Dr. Budasoff came from a
family whose religious ob-
servance was reserved only for
the High Holy Days. Had they
lived in a city, he probably would
have been Bar Mitzvah together
with some of the boys with whom
he went to school. Economic cir-
cumstances forced the family to
move from village to village,
living almost always amongst
gentiles.
There was simply no op-
portunity for young Israel
Budasoff to be Bar Mitzvah. He
is not quite sure as to whether it
really bothered him or not over
the ensuing years, but he made
sure that his sons Peter, 27, and
Daniel, 25, did not miss out on
their Bar Mitzvahs when they
were 13 years old.
In 1973. Dr. Budasoff and his
wife Josephine visited Israel for
the first time, traveling with the
Physicians' Fellowship.
Their hearts had always been
open to Israel, but now they were
opening their eyes and liking
what they saw.
When the opportunity came
this year to visit Israel again on
the Jewish Federation of South
Broward's Community Mission
to Israel, the Budasoffs decided
that they had put off a second
trip for long enough.
On a Mission, the concept ot
Jewish identity perhaps goes a
little deeper than it does on tours
by other groups and organiza-
tions. Israel Budasoff seriously
began to contemplate making up
for lost time, and celebrating his
Bar Mitzvah in Israel. The other
people on the Mission were very
enthusiastic about the idea. It
seemed so right to have his Bar
Mitzvah in Jerusalem.
His wife was ecstatic: and he
himself was quietly happy with
the thought that that 13-year-old
boy of long ago would have been
Bar Mitzvah because it was the
thing to do. and not necessarily
because he wanted to.
"Mine is a conscious decision
to stand as a man among my
people," Dr. Budasoff said when
interviewed in Jerusalem on the
eve of his Bar M itzvah.
He had not called the United
States to tell his sons. "It will be
a great surprise for them," he
said.
November, 1976, will remain
memorable in the minds of Israel
and Josephine Budasoff not only
because of the Bar Mitzvah
which was celebrated at the
Western Wall, but because of the
total perspective of their ex-
perience. "We feel very much at
home here." said Dr. Budasoff.
"It makes me proud that my
own name is Israel. I was very
pleasantly surprised to see what
has happened to the country
during the three years since we
were last here; and I'm really
glad that I came again. I learned
a lot and traveled with a wonder-
ful group of people from South
Broward," he said.
Peter and Daniel Budasoff
have not yet been to Israel, but
their father is sure that it will not
be long before they, too, are
drawn to see for themselves what
is happening to the Jewish
homeland.
"They want to come," he said,
and revealed that he had already
made inquiries on their behalf
about the next UJA Young
Leadership Mission which is
designed for people in their age
group.
It is not only a matter of them
wanting to come, he wants them
to see it and to be emotionally
aroused by some of the things
which so deeply impressed their
parents.
"I can't get over what was
accomplished in Israel in such a
short time," he marveled. "The
Israelis may have had a lot of
help from outside, but they could
not have achieved everything
that they have achieved without
the spirit of their own initiative."
Not all people have the good
fortune to reap a quick reward for
their labors, particularly if their
efforts are directed toward an
ideological, intangible goal.
An exception is I/ewis E. Cohn,
president of the Jewish Fed-
eration of South Broward. whose
major task in life is imbuing
other Jews with the spirit of
Israel.
As a very young man. Cohn
lived in Israel (or Palestine as it
was called then) working of-
ficially for the British Army as an
interpreter and driver, and un-
officially for the Hagana as an
advisor on when to expect British
raids.
After being injured in Hebron,
he left Palestine and went to
France. Had he realized way back
in 1937 that the Jewish dream
was only eleven years away from
becoming a reality, he would
have surely remained. But in
retrospect, it appears that fate
intended him to fight another
kind of war, on another kind of
battlefield. His task was to fight
Jewish apathy, indifference and
assimilation.
Success would earn him no
medals which he could display on
his chest, but it would provide
additional links in the chain of
Jewish commitment.
This year Cohn, along with
other Federation leadership, led
Goodman to be Honored At Allington Towers
Samuel B. Goodman, civic
leader and worker on behalf of
Israel, will be the honoree at the
annual Salute to Israel Brunch to
be held under the auspices of the
Allington Towers Israel Bond
Committee in the Social Hall of
the building on Sunday, Dec. 19,
10:30 a.m.. it was announced bv
Sumner Stopnik and Jack Rosen-
blatt, chairmen of the event.
Goodman, who is a former Tax
Commissioner of the City of New
York and one of the founders of
the Wall Street Synagogue, will
be the recipient of the Israel
Solidarity Award.
Swiss-Egypt Trade Doubles
GENEVA (JTA) Swiss Minister for Economic
Affairs Ernst Brugger said here that Switzerland's trade with
Egypt will practically double within two years Brugger told
the Swiss Federal Council, the government, that economic
exchanges between the two countries will top 200 million Swiss
franca (about $80 million) by 1977. "onswiss
the group of 80 people f^
South Broward on the Mission to
Israel.
Of the South Broward con-
tingent, some 50 percent hid
never been to Israel before |t
was not a tourist trip. In a little
over a week, they had an in-depth
confrontation with Jewish I
history, Israel's problems &*
social welfare, immigrant absorp-
tion, housing and defense; and
Israel's achievements towird
peace in the Middle East such as
the "good fence" with Lebanon
and the border settlements which
protect access to the heartland of
the country.
Among the first-timers were
Dr. and Mrs. Philip Levin, who
had personally been persuaded
by Cohn and his wife to join the
Mission.
How did Israel measure up
against Dr. Levin's preconcep-
tions? "It's only about ten or
fifteen times more than I thought
it would be," he said.
*
"I thought I'd come to Israel
and be turned on emotionally by
Jerusalem and the Wall; but I
was turned on emotionally by
other things as well such as
the development town of Kiryat
Shmona. where people live a daily
life, knowing that every day some
Arab terrorists could come over
the hill and they might never see
their children again.
"I was also turned on by the
Absorption Center where we met
a sweet young Russian doctor of
28 who came to Israel because he
couldn't do all the thing!) he
wanted to do in Russia. I could
really relate to him," he con-
tinued.
Mrs. Cohn, who was on her i
fourth visit to Israel, found it
remarkable "that in spite of the
turmoil and living on the ed;< of
fear, Israel continues to grow "
An experience which she had
on this occasion, but never
before, was to see that Israel is
not quite as isolated as event sat
the UN would seem to indicate.
While the Mission was in
Israel, one of their dinners was
invated by a large group of Japa-
nese singing songs in Hebrew,
dancing, clapping and clasping
hands of anyone with whom they
could come into contact. They
were Christians, members of the
pro-Zionist Makuya movement
on their thirteenth annual piF
gr image to Israel. They engen-
dered such a spirit of love and
warmth into the room, that no-
one present could fail to be
moved by it.
"Here was a race of people so
different from us," Mrs. Cohn
commented, "yet they identify
with our emotional feelings about
Israel. It was one of the most ex-
citing experiences I have ever
had in my life."
Levin concurred, "We're
worlds apart and yet, on that
night, we were one."
"He would not have been able
to speak that way two weeks
ago," remarked Cohn. "I am
delighted to see the emotional
change in him and to listen to his
reactions to Israel. It gives me a
great deal of joy. The 80 people"
who came from South Broward
were practically strangers when
we left; but we're going home as
a total family."
Levin now feels "a heavy
responsibility to pass on all that I
learned in Israel." The first thing
he's going to do is to try
convey his feelings to his three
children. "Then I'm going to
bring them on a family mission
After that. I'm going to turn
other young people on to Israel I
have to get as many people as
possible on a mission. It's rut
enough to tell them about it
Without seeing Israel, how could
anyone really feel it?"
What were Conn's feelings as
he listened to Levin? A smile of
satisfaction lit his face. "I fe*l
I've done something positive," he
said. r

chanukah festival: dual Struggle For fRee6ofn
By I. M. GREEN
The eight-day festival of Cha-
nukah which we are now
celebrating symbolizes, in a way,
the dual struggle of the Jewish
people throughout much of its
history for political as well as
religious freedom.
The struggle of the Maccabees,
led by Mattathias the Has-
monean, and his son Jmiah,
against the Syrian ruler of the
Jews, Antiochus Epiphants. at
first had as its object onlv the
restoration of freedom of
religious worship and the preser-
vation of Jewish laws and
customs. King Antiochus, in his
continuous attempts to Heilenize
his subject peoples, was led to
suspend Jewish practice*, to
convert the Temple in Jerusalem
into a Greek sanctuary, and to
erect Jethen altars in the
country's towns. The revolt of
the people succeeded in restoring
religious freedom and spiritual
autonomy to Judea, and the re-
dedication of the Temple in 165
B.C.E. marked the end of this
stage of the conflict
THEREAFTER the conflict
with the non-Jewish rulers
became political. Mattathias'
sons gradually gained both
religious supremacy, as high
priests, and political supremacy.
as kings in Judea. and estab-
lished the Hamonean dynasty,
whose political independence was
recognized by the Roman Senate
in 139 B.C.E.
The Hasmonean dynasty ruled
Judea for more than a century. It
was not a happy period in Jewish
history. After religious and po-
litical independence had been
achieved, there came bitter in-
ternal struggles which shook
Judaism and the Jewish state to
their foundations. "The new
state," according to the Uni-
versal Jewish Encyclopedia,
"entered into diplomatic
relations with other states, made
alliances, created a standing
army, conducted wars; in short,
it tended to become just another
one of the many Hellenized states
in the Orient."
This secular attitude of the
Hasmonean rulers came into
conflict with some fundamental
ideas of Judaism. A religious
struggle, this time an internal
one, flared up again.
TWO JEWISH parties were
formed, the Pharisees, who were
the zealous guardians of tra-
dition, of the unwritten law, of
theocracy, and who had the
masses of the people on their
side, and the Sadducees. whose
adherents were drawn from the
priestly aristocracy and the
wealthy and influential laity. The
Hasmonean rulers tended, for the
most part, to the Sadducean
view.
The Hasmonean dynasty came
to an end in 37 B.C.E., when the
Idumean half-Jew Herod,
ascended the Judean throne and
slaughtered the remaining mem-
bers of the Hasmonean dynasty.
NEVERTHELESS, the
troublesome and rather unhappy
aftermath of the Maccabean
revolt, an aftermath of royal
intrigues and throne usurpations,
of bitter religious conflicts and
even of civil war, does not detract
from the great importance of the
revolt itself, which the Chanukah
story symbolizes.
The restoration of religious
freedom to Judea through the
defeat of the tyrannical Greek
king was a great event not only in
Jewish, but in human, history.
Had Antiochus won, Judaism
would have been annihilated.
And, had Judaism been an-
nihilated, no Christianity, which
was born out of Judaism, could
have arisen a couple of centuries
later.
Thus, had the Maccabean
revolt been crushed, instead of
having emerged victorious, the
whole course of human history
would have been altered. And so
the Maccabean revolt became a
turning point in history and is
recognized as such even in the
religious calendar of the Roman
Catholics.
NO MATTER how bitter may
have been the religious struggles
between the Pharisees and Sad-
ducees following the Maccabean
revolt, the Jews were again free
to practice their religion and to
develop it in accordance with
changed conditions. It gave the

Pharisees, who became the domi-
nant force in Judaism, through
they had to fight for ascendancy,
a chance to preserve and even
strengthen the Jewish religion
through a developing Oral Law
constantly interpreting and re-
interpreting the Written Law of
the Hebrew Bible. It saved the
Talmud for future ages.
The political independence
which the Maccabean revolt
ultimately won for ancient Judea
may not at first seem as im-
portant as the religious freedom
it achieved, in view of the fact
that a couple of centuries later
the Jews lost not only their
political independence but were
even uprooted from their home-
land by the Romans.
ONE MIGHT argue that,
while the Jews were able to main-
tain their religious autonomy in
exile despite all persecutions,
they could not maintain any
shred of political autonomy after
they were forced to leave Pales-
tine. While no one can deny that
there is a great deal of truth in
this argument, it must not at the
same time be forgotten that

religion and secularism are so
intertwined in Judaism that
Judaism is so much a "religious
civilization." a religious way of
life, that by preserving their
religious autonomy the Jews
were able to force medieval
Christian rulers to grant them
some sort of internal self-govern-
ment, because the medieval
Christian rulers had to recognize
that Jews were not merely
another religious sect, but a dis-
tinct nation.
That sense of nationality,
coupled with the sense of
religious uniqueness, was forged
mainly in the century of Jewish
political independence which fol-
lowed the Maccabean revolt.
The Jewish struggle for
religious and political freedom
continues in our own day. There
is a Communist Russia, where
two and a half million Jews are
denied elementary religious
freedoms: where so many syna-
gogues have been closed, and no
permission has been given for the
erection of new ones, that in
many cities and considerable
Jewish populations Jews have no
place to go to worship their God
in their own way; where the home
manufacture or importation of
Jewish religious articles or foods
such as matzohs are forbidden by
the Government; and where the
teaching of the Hebrew language,
the language of the Jewish
religion, is taboo.
AND TOGETHER with
religious freedom, the cultural
freedom of a secular nationality is
also denied to Jews in Soviet
Russia. No recognition is given
by the Communists to the Yid-
dish language, the language
which a half-million Soviet Jews
still speak, even by the Com-
munists' own statistics. No Yid-
dish books are published, no
newspapers, only one Yiddish bi-
monthly magazine with a cir-
culation of 25.000. hardly any
schools where the Yiddish
language is taught.
We in the democratic world,
who live outside the Communist
Iron Curtain, have protested
against this denial of freedom to
Soviet Jewry, and will continue
to protest as long as the Russian
Government will continue this
policy of repression. We shall
continue to hope that our pro-
tests will eventually bear fruit.
In the independent State of
Israel, today, there is no struggle
for religious freedom against
some external power which would
suppress that freedom, though
there are internal religious con-
flicts which flare up from time to
time, conflicts in which the non-
Orthodox accuse the Orthodox of
exercising too much hegemony
over Israeli life and of limiting
the religious freedom of the non
Orthodox. These conflicts, un-
derstandable in the light of
Jewish historic evolution, do not
however endanger the existence
of the Jewish State.
BUT AS far as its political
independence is concerned, Israel
today, almost thirty years after it
came into being, must still main-
tain a crushing burden of arma
ments to defend itself against
hostile Arab neighboring states
that still proclaim their intention
of destroying it.
It is still technically at war
with these Arab states, though
an armistice is being enforced
and its borders at present are
quiet. But Israel never can tell
when war may flare up again and
it may have to fight for its verv
life.

THE WORD "Chanukah," which means dedi-
cation, does not in itself convey the full signifi-
cance of our eight-day winter holiday. Even if we
recall its other name the Feast of Lights we
still miss the hard kernel of the holiday's
meaning.
Actually, Chanukah is a great festival of
freedom, commemorating the first time in Jewish
history that freedom was attained through
courage in battle and a determination to fight for
the things we hold sacred.
ALL OF us should bear in mind as we
celebrate, from the 24th of Kislev (this year Dec.
16) to 3rd of Teveth for the 2,127th consecutive
year, the victory of the Maccabees over the
Hellenized Syrian oppressors. For in so doing, we
will be reaffirming our belief in the principle that
freedom is an ideal for which Jews have always
been willing to fight and die.
Then, besides celebrating the Jewish temple's
rededication to the worship of God, after
deliberate Syrian defilement, we will also be
marking the anniversary of a masterful Jewish
military operation which ultimately converted
Judea from the tiny district into which it had
shrunk to the historical boundaries established by
King David and known ever since as Eretz
YisraeL
Every Jewish boy or girl learns how the Mac-
cabean struggle began. They hear the familiar
story of how an enranged Mattathias, the aging
patriarch of the Hasmonean family, killed a
Jewish traitor for kneeling before a Greek idol,
and how he then turned on the Syrian soldier who
ordered the blasphemy and slew him as well.
WE UNDERSTAND that this was the spark
that ignited Israel's first war of liberation, which
ultimately brought complete victory for the
Maccabees. But how many of us are aware of the
fact that the fighting did not actually begin with
Mattathias' impulsive deed? How many of us
know that many of the Jews those known then
as the "Hassidim" were already in armed
conflict with the mercenaries of the Syrian
Emperor Antiochus IV because of his unbearable
despotic rule?
Actually, the first Jewish rumblings against
Syrian domination during the turbulent second
century (B.C.E.I began several years before the
Maccabees organized their dogged guerrilla army.

By JAN WINKOWSKY
The Hassidim confronted Antiochus' troops with
armed opposition and were constantly seeking
open battle with them. However, there was one
exception: the Sabbath.
The Hassidim refused to take up arms on the
Holy Day, many of them preferring to be cut
down like grain rather than break the Lord's
commandment. This was their Achilles' heel, and
the Syrians were quick to take advantage of it.
THE MACCABEES did not see it that way,
however, they insisted that it was permissible for
Jews to fight in self-defense on the Sabbath if
they faced the alternative of being slaughtered
like lambs.
They also provided the Hassidim with a leader
the likes of whom has been rare and invaluable in
Jewish history: Juday, Mattathias' second son,
who was second to none as a commander,
strategist and fighter. He led the poorly trained
and ill-equipped Jewish forces to rout the Syrian
enemy, never fearing that Antiochus' forces pos-
sessed the ultimate in tactical weapons and were
bolstered by the most awesome armor in the day:
elephants.
THUS, it is remarkable, that at the Battle of
Emmaus, the turning point of the war, which was
fought near the site of Israel's Bab el Wad
(where the fate of modern Jerusalem was decided
in 1948) Judah and his men dared to oppose
thousands of picked Syrian infantrymen and
cavalry (37,000 in all, according to the apocryphal
Book of Maccabees).
Judah, of course, had a clever ruse in mind
when he prepared to fight the numerically
superior enemy. Learning that the Syrians
planned to raid his encampment under cover of
darkness, Judah ordered his men to vacate it at
once and seek concealment in the nearby hills.
Lysias, the Syrian commander a close relative
of the Emperor finding the Jewish encamp-
ment abandoned, assumed that the Jews were
afraid to fight and ordered his troops to locate
them in the surrounding area.
THE SEARCH was fruitless, but it did serve
to tire the Syrian soldiers. Meanwhile, Judah
waited until daylight and then advanced to meet
Lysias in battle on a nearby plain. Finally, in
spite of the impossible odds, the Jews were
victorious.
The "propaganda" effect of this battle was
almost as great as its military value. Antiochus
was forced to admit that the Judean rebels were a
formidable enemy, invincible even when con-
fronted with the cream of his battalions.
These conclusions were confirmed, for, by the
time Judah and his men were dedicating the
temple in Jerusalem, they had defeated another
Syrian army, this one even larger than the one
commanded by Lysias.
ALTHOUGH the Maccabees eventually
succeeded in establishing a full-fledged in-
dependent Jewish commonwealth, there was a
new invader waiting in the wings: the Romans.
Within just over 200 years, they not only
destroyed the last vestiges of Jewish sovereignty,
but reduced to rubble the very temple for which
the Maccabees had risked so much to restore.
Nevertheless, the Romans could not accomplish
their mission until their legions had crushed the
same kindof indefatigable Jewish armed
resistance as had opposed Antiochus IV.
The willingness of Jews to fight for freedom did
not cease in the year 70 C.E. It is true that, for
many centuries, there were few causes which had
room for Jewish partisans. But Jews were ready
when the first great opportunity came: the Amer-
ican Revolutionary War, in which hundreds of
Jews rallied to the standard of Gen. George
Washington.
PROPORTIONATELY, the number of Jewish
soldiers serving in the Continental Army was
very high. Although the total Jewish population
in the 13 colonies was small (only 2,000 to 3,000)
they provided more than the average percentage
of men who bore arms, and many of them were
among the best American soldiers.
Their names are preserved in the records of the
American Revolution. They range in rank from
field grade officers to buck privates all volun-

teers, of course. (There was no draft until many
wars later.)
One of the most interesting of them was Col.
David Salisbury Franke, who became an aide to
Generals Benjamin Lincoln and Benedict Arnold.
He averted the possibility of an American
Dreyfus Case by insisting that a full inquiry be
conducted by a military tribunal to prove that he
was in no way involved in the treasonous activ-
ities of his dishonored commander.
ANOTHER distinguished Jewish officer was
Maj. Benjamin Nones, who came to the Colonies
from France and eventually served on the staffs
of Gen. Washington and the Marquis de
Lafayette. Nones won his commission after
performing meritorious service as a private under
the command of Count Pulaski, in whose units he
served as a private. It was Nones who carried
Baron de Kalb from the battlefield at Camden.
N.J., when the Baravian-born French officer was
mortally wounded. Nones received a lengthy
letter from Count Pulaski citing his consistent
bravery under fire.
Two of the Jewish soldiers who were killed in
action were Salvador Ettings, of Maryland, and
Capt. Lewis Bush, of the Sixth Pennsylvania
Battalion, who was fatally wounded at the Battle
of Brandy wint'.
OTHER JEWISH soldiers who distinguished
themselves in battle were Samuel Bush, Ben-
jamin Ezekiel, Jason Sampson, Aaron Benjamin,
Ascher Levy, Nathaniel Levy, Jacob Hays, Ben-
jamin Moses, F.man dela Motta, Joseph Sam-
pson, Abraham Seizes and Jacob Leon.
The Pinto family of Connecticut sent three of
its sons to the Uonntinental Army, while the
newly declared state of South Carolina mustered
a distinct "Jews' Company," so called because 15
of its 60 members were Jews. It was commanded
by Capt. Richard Lushington.
Another prominent member of the Franks
family (the Franks were the nation's leading
Jewish family at the time of the Revolution) was
Col. Isaac Franks. He enlisted at the age of 17
and gained his colonelcy after being wounded in
battle several times. By the time the war was
over. Col. Franks had become a close personal
friend of George Washington, on whose staff he
served and with whom he kept in touch for many
years after both returned to civilian life.
BUT THE most touching incident of all those
concerning Jews in the Revolutionary War is one
connected with Chanukah. It happened at Valley
Forge, during the time of the greatest peril for the
revolutionary cause.
It was the first night of Chanukah. A Jewish
soldier wanted to light the first candle, but he
feared it would attract too much attention. He
waited until his comrades in arms were all fast
asleep.
Then, when he was alone with the darkness,
cold and hungry, he inserted the flickering candle
into the Menorah he had brought with him from
his father's house in Poland. Just then, he felt
someone's hand rest gently on his shoulder.
When he looked up he saw that it was Gen.
Washington himself. Apparently he had noticed
the flickering light inside the tiny hut, and
decided to see what it was.
"What is that?" Gen. Washington asked.
THE SOLDIER explained that it was a
Menorah, and that Jews all over the world were
kindling the first of eight candles in celebration of
the Maccabees' victory over the Syrians.
Gen. Washington stared at the tiny flame and
said, "You are a Jew, a descendant of the
prophets."
"Yes sir," the soldier agreed, "and you will lead
the American army to victory in this fight, just as
Judah Maccabee led us to victory in those days.
Then all of us will build a new land and new lives
in this country."
Gen. Washington did not say any more. He
simply shook the soldier's hand and left. Time
passed, and the war took its course just as the
young Jewish soldier said it would. The next year,
in 1778, the young Jew was sitting in his house on
Broome St., in New York. It was first night of
Chanukah, and a candle was flickering in the
window.
THEN HE heard a knock on the door. It was
Gen. Washington, who promptly entered and
said: "There is the wonderful candle the sym-
bol of the home of Israel." Once again he put his
hand on the ex-serviceman's shoulder, and said:
"This candle kindled a light in my heart that
night. Now you are going to receive a medal as
one of the heroes of Valley Forge. Tonight, I want
you to accept this gold medallion."
The ex-serviceman could barely utter a word
and, before he realized it, Gen. Washington was
gone. When he examined the coin, he found that it
bore a skillful inscription of a menorah and the
words: "In gratitude for the light given forth by
the candle of freedom."
poles Will Restope CemeteRies
By BEN GALLOB
Polish government has com-
mitted itself for the first time to
the principle of the restoration
and preservation of an estimated
1,000 Jewish cemeteries in
Poland, most of which are in
very poor condition, a New York
rabbinical official reported.
Rabbi Hertz Frankel sec-
retary of a Rabbinical Com-
mittee for Preservation of Jewish
Cemeteries, said the Polish
government's commitment
developed from negotiations in
Warsaw between a delegation of
four rabbis and a layman with
Kazimierz Kakol. Polish Min-
ister of Religious Affairs,
recently.
HE TOLD the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
committee, representing all
major Orthodox rabbinical and
Hasidic organizations of the
United States and Canada, was
organized more than a year ago
to raise the issue with the Polish
government.
After a year of negotiations,
he said, the committee was
invited to send the delegation to
Warsaw to discuss the problem.
Frankel said also that an
effort to work out details of the
implementation of the com-
mitment would be made at a
second meeting with Polish
officials by another committee
delegation.
He said the composition of the
second delegation and arrange-
ments for the second round of
talks in Warsaw should be com-
pleted soon.
THE RABBI stated that the
U.S. government, through its
ambassador in Warsaw, was
helpful in reaching the initial
agreement. Help also was
received from William Perry of
New York, a survivor of the
Holocaust, who is now an official
of a local of the International
Longshoreman's Association,
with the full support of the
Association, Frankel said.
Perry was the layman in the
delegation. Frankel said only a
few Jewish cemeteries in Poland
were in acceptable condition. He
cited the Jewish cemetery in
Cracow and one of two in
Warsaw. He said the other
cemetery in Warsaw was badly
deteriorated.
He noted that, since the
wartime destruction of Polish
Jewry by the Nazis, the majority
of Jewish cemeteries were
unused. Apart from neglect, he
said, some cemeteries had been
victims of urban renewal
projects.
Noting that under Jewish
religious law, all Jewish
cemeteries are considered sacred
places, Frankel observed that
this was particularly true of
cemeteries in Poland where
founders of Hassidic dynasties
and deans of major European
yeshivas are interred.
HE ADDED that many Polish
cemeteries had become the final
resting places of thousands of
Nazi victims buried in mass
graves. He reported that, as a
first step, the Polish government
has said a sign will be placed on
all Jewish cemeteries warning
that any person defacing or
disturbing the cemetery will face
severe punishment.

IFTY YEARS ago, Benjamin
than Cardozo, a shy, reticent,
itary scholar who thought of
self as a "plodding medioc-
y," was elected Chief Judge of
New York State Court of
peal9, the highest court in the
te.
Six years later, in 1932, Justice
irdozo, descendant of a Sephar-
Jewish family traced to before
American Revolution, was
pointed Associate Justice of
United States Supreme Court
ere. in a short period of time,
left an enduring impression on
constitutional history of the
tion.
JUSTICE CARDOZO, who
ught neither office nor fame,
in such high esteem among the
'ilie and his peers, that his ele-
tion first to the highest court
the State and then to the
ghest in the nation was vir-
iilly by public acclamation. On
appointment to the Supreme
irt, the entire country
joiced. On his death he was
turned throughout the land.
Chief Justice of the U.S. Su-
eme Court Charles Evans
ughes described Justice Car-
ozo as a "combination of grace
id power." Justice Oliver Wen-
ill Holmes, whom Justice Car-
izo succeeded on the bench,
lied him "a great and beautiful
irit."
IN A EULOGY in 1938, Judge
ing Lehman of the New York
urt of Appeals said that
ustice Cardozo could not com-
mise where principle was
olved. He could not abandon
standards of right; he could
reject what he believed to be
e.
HE LOVED America with a
urpassing love because he
lieved that her institutions are
unded upon the divine com-
wnds that men shall love their
ighbors and their God."
BENJAMIN CARDOZO died
the age of 68 at the home of
bdge Lehman on Portchester,
Y., just six years after his
ppointment to the U.S. Supreme
lourt. A great career had ended,
great American had left the
rene, and the nation mourned a
nan who had earned the title,
he just judge."
Justice Cardozo was one of the
"evat personalities in American
wish history. A distinguished
merican, he was proud and
^nscious of his Jewish heritage.
And while he sought no per-
onal fame, he blazed new paths
>r judicial decisions, his legacy
a lifetime of devotion to law,
istice, and democratic ideals,
i early forgotten in the whirlwind
the past forty years, he is
<'ing memorialized through the
aming of the new Benjamin N.
irdozo School of Law at
eshiva University.
THE BENJAMIN Cardozo
>cend is linked to the pride and
heritage of America's early
> phardic Jewish settlers who
ed to the New World to escape
ligious persecution in Spain,
rtugal, South America and the
~, fiddle East.
On both sides of bis family
ere descendants who had been
.nnected with the nation's
dest Jewish congregation,
hearith Israel, the Spanish and
ortuguese Synagogue founded
New York City in 1666.
The wealth of many of these
imUiea was greatly tempered by
religious zeal which echoed
Drebears who had gone to the
lake during the Spanish In-
[uisition.
THERE WAS also an innate
nee of success through hard
ork, as reflected by the Cardoso
unity's hiring of Horatio Alger
a tutor for the young Ben-
amin at their home in New York
ity.
And while Benjamin is
ported to have said "(Alger)
not do so much lor me as he
did with the careers of his news-
boys," he did instill in the youth
a lifelong love of poetry and a
fascination for the English
language which later manifested
itself in his writings from the
bench.
The young Cardozo was a
brilliant student. He graduated
from Columbia College at the age
of 19 and while he spent two
years at Columbia Law School,
he was admitted to the New York
State Bar without ever receiving
his LLB degree. In the following
years he moved rapidly upward
through recognition of his integ-
rity, hard work and sense of
honor.
In 1913, he was elected a
justice of the New York State
Supreme Court. In 1917, as a
candidate of both major parties,
he was elected a Judge of the
N. Y. State Court of Appeals for a
14-year term. In 1926, he was
elected Chief Judge of that Court.
In 1932 he was appointed by
President Herbert Hoover to the
U.S. Supreme Court. He served
until his death in 1938.
JUSTICE CARDOZO, with a
single-minded love and devotion
to his profession, brought to the
bench a sense of justice which
early in his career championed
the plight of the common man
against what appeared to be the
uncaring mechanisms of urban
society.
A case often referred to oc-
curred in 1916, involving con-
sumer redress against a manu-
facturer. The buyer of a car was
suing an automobile company for
injuries incurred due to a
defective wheel on the car.
The manufacturer argued that
since it had not sold him the car
directly it was not responsible for
the accident. The manufacturer
also claimed there was no proof of
knowledge of the defect, even
though the car collapsed while it
was being driven at eight miles
an hour.
THE LOWER court upholding
the manufacturer, the case was
brought to the Court of Appeals
where Justice Cardozo over-
turned the ruling. He wrote, in
part, that the automobile was
designed to go 50 miles an hour,
and unless its wheels were sound
and strong, injury was almost
certain. He also said that since
the manufacturer obviously knew
that when it supplied its cars to
dealers they would ultimately be
sold to motorists, any claim to
the contrary was "in-
consequential."
Justice Cardozo is also
regarded as one of the first
American jurists to clarify legal
wrongs as against moral wrongs.
HE SOUGHT methods of
clarifying laws which might be
too vague and approached his
subject matter in a lucid, chaste
style which was sympathetic,
understanding and com-
prehensive. In 1925, he recom-
mended that a permanent agency
be established in New York State
to function between the court.'
and the legislature to considei
proper administration of justice
in a changing civilization.
It formed the basis of
legislation which led to the
creation of the Judicial Council of
the State of New York and the
Law Revision Commission.
HIS ATTITUDES on the
relation of law to life were ex-
pressed in the classic Nature of
the Judicial Process, The Growth
of Law and Law and Literature,
written between 1921 and 1931.
On the U.S. Supreme Court,
together with Justices Holmes
. dation for later broad inter-
pretations of federal powers. He
recognized changing social needs,
issuing decisions which ex-
pressed evolutionary applications
of legal principles. In landmark
cases he further clarified the
accountability of third parties for
negligent misrepresentation.
His opinion in the Social
Security cases of 1937 reaffirmed
the Constitution as an efficient
instrument in meeting critical
and broad social needs. His
energies throughout his years on
the bench were devoted not to
agitating disputes on the Court,
but to the continuing principles
of the Constitution.
HIS LOVE of the law and his
rise to international fame did not,
however, detract from his sense
of duty to family and community.
Around the turn of the century,
Justice Cardozo, still a young
lawyer, was instrumental in
helping heal a rift between
members of the Shearith Israel
congregation, some of whom
wished to "modernize" the
facility and its rituals.
He said that nothing must be
dlowed to change the Sephardi'-
ritual, arguing that the very
name of the synagogue, which
translated into "Remnant of
Israel" indicated there were
values worth holding to at any
cost. His speech was viewed by
many at the time as the effective
measure by which the con-
gregation held secure to its
ancient traditions.
DURING HIS lifetime he
remained a member of several
organizations and agencies con-
cerned with the benefit of the
Jewish community.

In 1925, in a commencement
address delivered at Albany Law
School, his closing words to
graduates were: "You will study
the wisdom of the past, for in a
wilderness of conflicting counsels
a trail has been blazed. You will
study the life of mankind, for this
is the life you must order, and to
order with wisdom, must know.
You will study the precepts of
justice, for these are the truths
that through you shall come to
their hour of triumph."
U.S. Supreme Court Chief
Justice Charles Evans Hughes,
at Justice Carozo's death, said
that "No judge ever came to this
Court more fully equipped by
learning, acumen, dialectical skill
and disinterested purpose.
"He came to us in the full
maturity of his extraordinary
intellectual power, and no one on
this bench has ever served with
more untiring industry or more
enlightened outlook. The memory
of that service and its brilliant
achievements will ever be one of
the most prized traditions of this
tribunal."
JUSTICE CARDOZO was
honored by many institutions
throughout his lifetime. He was
awarded an honorary doctoral
degree by Yeshiva College at one
of its early commencements in
1935.
In September Yeshiva Uni-
versity opened its new Benjamin
N. Cardozo School of Law, in
tribute to the memory of the
"just judge" whose tradition
may be carried forward from
generation to gneration.

Chanukah'Christmas
It's That Time of Year Again
Here we go again.
After all these years,
would think we all know.
you
The community's rabbis have
been telling us about it for years.
And still, the questions persist.
Are they doing a good job? Or
is it we, who by repeatedly
"failing to remember," are doing
such a bad job?
A "GUIDE for Jewish Parents
Regarding Christmas" has just
been issued by the Rabbinical
Association of Greater Miami.
The Guide, according to Rabbi
Avrom L. Drazin, of Temple
Israel of Miramar, president of
the Association, "is in response
to many inquiries by countless
Jewish families in the com-
munity."
During this time of year,
according to Rabbi Drazin,
"Jewish families are confronted
by confusion and conflict which
the holiday poses for them. It is
hoped that the Guide will help
relieve them of some of this
confusion."
Everyone else hopes so too.
Q. Isn't Christmas a national
holiday which all Jews can ob-
serve in good conscience?
A. Banks and government
agencies do close, but above all
things, Christmas is a major
Christian holy day which cele-
brates the birth of Jesus, the
Christian Messiah. To suggest to
our Christian friends that Christ-
mas is anything else would be
presumptuous. Christmas is not
in the same category as Thanks-
giving Day, Fourth of July.
Decoration Day. or any other
American holiday. Since we do
not regard Jesus as our savior,
we cannot in good conscience ob-
serve Christmas. To do so is to
violate our religious principles.
Q. How do Christian clergy-
men and the responsible
Christian laiety regard the
problem?
A. Responsible Christian
leaders bemoan the perversion of
the Christmas season and are
trying to do something about it.
Christian clergymen and laymen
constantly speak out against the
commercialization of the Christ-
mas celebration. It is a religious
holiday, and should be regarded
as such.
Q. Would it not be the better
part of discretion to "go along"
with our Christian neighbors
even if it means observing
Christmas?
A. No matter involving vio-
lations of strong religious con-
victions can be regarded as trivial
or minor. The true spirit of
Americanism would never compel
anyone to act in conflict with his
freedom of conscience. Our early
American forebears came to these
shores precisely for the oppor-
tunity to worship God according
to the dictates of their hearts
Q What about the Christmas
tree?
A. The Christmas tree is
distinctively a Christmas
symbol. Since Christmas is for
Christians, the Christmas tree is
appropriate for Christians only
The Christmas tree has no place
in the Jewish home, nor should
any Jewish child be compelled t >
participate in observances ir-
volving Christmas trees.
Q. Should Jewish children par-
ticipate in Christmas parties in
the public schools?
A. Parties designated as
Christmas parties or having the
appearance of Christmas parties,
have no place in the public
schools. Winter or year-end
parties of a general nature are
acceptable.
Q. la it appropriate to give
gifts to Christian friends?
A. It is appropriate to give
Christmas girts to our Christian
friends. However, it is not ap-
propriate to present Christmas
gifts to Jews.
Q Should Jewish children par-
ticipate in Christmas plays in
public schools?
A. No. Christmas plays gener-
ally portray religious themes
which have no place in a public
school. On the other hand, some
schools hold a so-called "Winter
Festival" in which an attempt is
made to avoid all religious con-
notations. But it is sometimes
difficult to draw the distinction.
If the parents feel that the per-
formance is free of all religious
overtones, children may certainly
participate.
Q. Should Jewish children sing
Christmas carols?
A. No. Carols, being religious
hymns, do not belong in the pub-
lic school. Jewish children should
not be required to sing hymns
which embody a theology they do
not accept. Neutral songs that
have no religious references,
however, are acceptable.
Q. Do we harm our children by
directing them not to participate?
A. No. The classroom is one
among many places which
reveals the existence of dif-
ferences. We further our chil-
dren's personal growth and
maturity by teaching them that
they can respect the faith of their
neighbor without embracing that
faith. We can clearly mark these
differences by such simple state-
ments as. "This is what we do."
and "This is what we do not do."
Q. What about other Jewish
children who participate in
Christmas observances in the
public schools?
A. There are now, as there
always have been, parents who
do not accept the viewpoint of re-
sponsible Jewish leadership.
They proceed on their own when
they permit their children to
participate in Christmas ob-
servances. This confuses the chil-
dren of parents who do follow the
thoughtful recommendations of
Jewish leadership.
Jewish parents will help their
children most if they (1) accept
diversity in the ranks of Jewry as
a normal condition in the Amer-
ican environment; (2) know and
understand the thinking of re-
sponsible Jewish leadership and
recognize that most parents are
anxious to follow it: and (3)
assure their children that despite
the participation of some Jewish
children, Jewish leaders have
taken a strong position for non-
participation in observances of a
holiday not their own, and that
this is also their position.
Q. Would not the entire prob-
lem be solved in the public school
by joint Christmas and
Chanukah celebration?
A. No. It s a violation of the
Constitution to observe any
sectarian holiday in the public
school, be it joint observance or
otherwise. We do not correct an
error by compounding the error.
Q. Should Chanukah be cele-
brated in the public schools?
A. No. To do so violates the
Constitution, uses the taxpayer's
money for sectarian purposes,
and jeopardizes the principle of
the separation of church and
state, without which there can be
no religious freedom.

The Jewish Floridian and Shofar of Greater Hollywood
Page 7-B
/HEN JIMMY Carter and
of his fellow-congregants of
I Plains Baptist Church voted
Intly to open services to all
irdless of race, the victory
recorded for religious free-
could readily be accepted as
I welcome prelude to the
Inukah season.
o be sure, there was no cruse
I to last eight days, or even
day, in the Baptist sanc-
ry. And no need for one. Yet
vote on the side of righteous-
offers reassurance to all who
or religious and racial
Betry.
ALONG THE way, the in-
nt had about it the odor of
lineal chicanery. And those
i dipped their hands in that
of dirty tricks went down to
at also.
Sow President-Elect Carter is
yet a Maccabee, but his
ior in the Plains political-
ious episode was in the good
ition of those who have long
ght for the right to worship as
heart dictates.
i hen Mattathias 21 centuries
led the historic Jewish battle
inst Antiochus Epimanea, he
fighting on his own turf.
my Carter, in 1976, knew his
tun by heart also.
nd when, at the close of the
|ident, he said it was a victory
God's church," he proved
self enrolled in the ranks of
se who answer a higher call as
Judah when he rallied the
abees with the cry: "Who-
is for the Lord, follow me."
THERE WERE, of course, a
i dark shadows over the Plains
ptist Church affair. First,
rter's political opponents were
vlessly misguided when they
ked with glee over the Carter
np's embarrassment flowing
m the appearance at the Plains
irch door by the black minister
slitician, Rev. Clennon King of
lany, Ga., the Sunday before
:tion Day.
CaRtetVs Victory in his Chimch
A pRelu6e to Chanukah
By ROBERT E. SEGAL
The reported dispatch of
telegrams by the Ford Com-
mittee to black ministers in many
parts of the country fortunately
backfired. The politico who
signed the malicious telegrams
apparently intended to prove to
the nation that Carter could not
very well influence Congress if he
couldn't influence the outcome of
the church squabble.
Carter proved his adversary
dead wrong.
Again, certain efforts to
portray the Democratic can-
didate as a bigot or at least one
who gave only lip service to civil
rights proved disastrous for Ford
cohorts.
COMMENTING on the
original exclusion of the Albany
visitor and three of his associates
from the church, one Peter
Teeley, deputy press secretary
for the President Ford Com-
mittee, asserted: "If nothing
else, it shows up some of the
inconsistencies in Mr. Carter's
beliefs on civil rights and
religion."
And Sen. Robert P. Griffin of
Michigan foolishly declared to re-
the church to blacks.) So here
was another Monday morning
quarterback proven wrong.
JIMMY CARTER stayed in
and won a thumping victory.
Other Americans who cherish
religious freedom and respect
racial and ethnic diversity shared
in the Carter triumph.
And those with hope in their
hearts and a pulse in their souls
are entitled to swear now that
they saw candles lighted for eight
days in Plains where certain fine
citizens may not have heard of
the Maccabees and Chanukah,
yet have participated in one more
battle won for God who watches
over all.
PRESIDENT-ELECT CARTER
porters: "This shows the con-
trast between Mr. Carter's public
posturing and his actual way of
life"
Finally, one confused critic of
Carter's conduct in the sticky
matter proclaimed Carter was all
wrong on trying to reform his
church by retaining his member-
ship and fighting from within.
(Way back in 1966, the
President-Elect and members of
his family comprised most of the
pitiful minority trying to open
