Area Hi-Rises Lend Support
To CJA-IEF Campaign Effort
Recent campaign events have
b*>en "most successful" on behalf

general campaign chairman.
Hundreds turned out at La
Mer to honor Mr. and Mrs. Morse
Epstein and Mr. and Mrs. Ben
Friedkin on behalf of the cam-
paign effort. Otto Steiber, CJA -
IEF Hi-Rise chairman, expressed
pleasure at the record turn-out
and said, "Once again residents
of La Mer have demonstrated
their concern for the people of
Israel, for Jews in Russia and for
Jews in the South Broward com-
munity. I am proud to reside in
this building with people who
know they are Jews and do some-
thing about it."

Building residents, in record
numbers, made financial commit-
ments to the CJA IEF cam-
paign to benefit the people of
Israel and Jews the world over.
Klauber said that because
building residents were so com-
mitted to the campaign effort, no
one person was singled out to be
honored at the brunch. "Instead,
we decided to honor all residents
of Galahad West who have
demonstrated their commitment
to the Jewish people."

Throughout the world on Feb.
2 and 3, Jews celebrated the
festival of Tu B'Shvat the
New Year of Trees, the Festival
of Planting, Jewish Arbor Day;
the holiday goes by many names.
In Hollywood the holiday was
celebrated with a ceremonial tree
planting at Washington Manor
Nursing Home. A black olive tree
was planted by resident Rabbi
Sol Hartogson.
Tu B 'Shvat means the fifteenth
day of Shvat, the fifth month in
the Jewish calendar. According
to Bet Hillel. most rain in Israel
falls before the fifteenth day of
Shvat. To mark the separation of
the tithes of fruit, this date was
chosen in ancient times as a kind
of fiscal new year. Fruits of those
trees which blossomed after Tu
B'Shvat were considered part of a
new year for the levying of tithes.
The tree planting program was
arranged by the Chaplaincy Pro-
gram of the Jewish Federation of
South Broward, Dr. Norman
Atkin, chairman.
A black olive tree was planted at the Washington Manor
Nursing Home in honor of Tu B'Shvat, the Jewish New Year of
Trees. Sponsored by the Chaplaincy Program of the Jewish
Federation of South Broward, the ceremony included (from left)
Rabbi Harold Richter, chaplain; Edwin Cuelho, Washington
Manor administrator; Marion Wolfson, a member of Feder-
ation's Chaplaincy Committee; Rabbi Sol Hartogson, a
Washington Manor resident; and Barbara Prosise, director of
Why we say Kaddish.
The Kaddish is one of the oldest prayers in
Jewish liturgy. It has been recited countless
numbers of times since Biblical days.In
ancient times the Kaddish was the prayer that
concluded a session of Torah study. However,
in the Middle Ages it assumed special
significance as a mourner's prayer.Yet, in a
real sense it is not a prayer for the dead.
Rather, it is a prayer for the living. A moving
statement in praise of God and a plea for the
ultimate redemption and salvation of all
For the bereaved, the Kaddish is a very
personal expression honoring the soul of a
deceased parent or close relative. But at the
same time, it is a celebration of life, a pledge
to live on in the tradition of the parents and
the Jewish people.
In a time of grief .when the feeling of loss
is most acute, it becomes a true act of faith
and devotion to stand and say the words of
trust and praise expressed so beautifully
in the Kaddish.
Throughout our history, these words have
been the bond that has held us together
through times of joy and sadness as a People
and a Faith.
It's what makes us Jews.

France Crumbles Again
Humankind is a rationalizing animal. There is no action we
cannot excuse in ourselves. If this is true of men and women, it
is certainly no less true of governments. Diplomacy is, as much
as anything else, the ability to rationalize self-serving acts with
pious pronouncements and rose-colored rhetoric.
There are instances, however, that exceed even these generous
hounds and are so distasteful that no apology can make them
seem anything but what they are.
The history of/ belle Fnime is filled with highs and lows. Her
go\ eminent and armies crumbled before the Nazis in World War
11. leading to the contemptible excesses of Pierre l.aval and the
11 agie det enorat ion of t he once-proud Marshal Phillippe Petain.
Now PlUCe has crumbled again, not to armies but to oil; not
to MJtcarasj but to blackmail; not to Nazism but to terrorism.
When a French court, rationalizing its cowardly act in quasi-
legal mumbo-iumbo. turned the monster of Munich. Abu Daoud.
loose to prey again on a world already dazed by terror. France
torfcitcd her place m the community of civilized nations.
Keact ion has been a combinat ion of international outrage and
utshelief. Ffoments of the French press expressed the same
shock and dismay
Certainly, the action of the American Jewish Congress, which
has killed its tour programs to France, represents a starting
point to effective Jewish pretest In bowing to terror and to oil
blackmail. France has delivered a clear message to world Jewry.
In addition to the letters and telegrams which have already
DOM sent. South Bnwd Jewry must reply now by making a
substantial commitment to the 19" Combined Jewish Appeal -
Israel Fmergency Fund campaign.

Will 'Roots' Uproot Us All?
I KEEP wanting to write
about Alex Haley's "Roots"
to say something smart and
natty about the panoramic rise of
Haley's family from humble
African beginnings to a 12-hour
television series that has caught
and heated up the nation's
imagination for better or worse,
depending upon whom you talk
So far. all I can dredge up are
two words, polarize and
galianue. with just a pinch of
collective guilt thrown in for good
And a prayer that none of
these emerges as a possibility
from the first massive occurrence
of inverted Tofflerian culture
shock to hit the U.S. since H. L.
Mencken last groused about his
pet peeves in Baltimore back in
the "20s and '30s.
THE PRAYER I offer up is
that it neither divides the nation
further nor serves as a martial
call to Blacks for action against
racial injustices that may seem to
them to be occurring right at this
moment, which is to say that
some so inclined do not appear to
be able to distinguish between
history and current events.
In this sense, the avid
followers of the Haley epic are
little different from the avid
followers of Mencken, for they
couldn't distinguish between
history and current events either.
and so in the "Roots" brouhaha
the danger is that the thinkers,
the latter-day Menckenites. are
littfo different from the potential
reactors, those with the capacity
to be polarized or galvanized,
depending upon which side of the
tracks they were bom

Feelings Fester Over
Howard Hughes' Will
ago we reported that reclusive
billionaire Howard Hughes was a
thin, emaciated wreck of a man,
neglected by his aides and
isolated from the world around
him. Our description of Hughes
noted that his hair was long,
straggly and snarled. His finger-
nails and toenails, we said, were
long and curling. At the time, the
story was denied.
After flying to Mexico to
investigate the billionaire's last
days there, we amassed enough
evidence to convince Mexican
authorities to help us with our
investigation. Their report
confirmed our early descriptions
of Hughes and his life as a virtual
IN A massive Acapulco
penthouse, Hughes was con-
signed to a small, back room with
boarded windows while his aides
occupied large, luxurious seaside
digs. Mexican police have
charged that the aides neglected
Hughes horribly.
The billionaire was allowed to
dangerously dehydrate and his
once tall broad body shriveled tc
a bare 90 pounds. He had open
bedsores, his teeth were badly
decayed and of course, his hair
and fingernails were exactly as
we described them years ago.
Mexican police told us they
would have charged Hughes'
aides with criminal neglect if they
had remained in the country. At
our suggestion, the police raided
the Acapulco penthouse and con-
fiscated thousands of documents.
We then arranged with former
Treasury Secretary William
Simon to have U.S Internal
Revenue Service agents photo-
graph the documents in Mexico
City. One of them is of special
interest. It is a memo about the
Hughes will.
UNDATED AND unsigned.l
the memo was found in a folder
labeled September in a folder
nothing unusual about the memo
being unsigned, because many
internal memos were habitually
unsigned by Hughes.
But this particular memo
indicates that the billionaire's
executive secretary, Nadine
Henley, was holding a will in her
Nadine Henley regarded the
will in her possession to be
Hughes' true will. But the memo
notes that another handwritten
will also existed. The memo
suggests, therefore, that Hughes
straightened out his wills before
he died.
learned that repeated testa on
animals show that the caffeine
found in coffee may cause birth
defects. The researchers have
concluded, therefore, that
pregnant women definitely
should not drink coffee.
Though it's the responsibility
of the Food and Drug Admin-
istration to protect the public
from unsafe beverages, the
agency so far has refused to order
warning labels on coffee. There
was a showdown on the subject
recently within the FDA itself.
Michael Jacobson, director of
the Center for Science in the
Public Interest, vainly pleaded
his case for warning labels

While placidly downing one cup
of coffee after another, Howard
Roberts, the top FDA official at
the meeting, flatly turned down

discovered that one critical
reason for the swine flu follies
dates back to a feud between
former President Richard Nixon
and the last U.S. Surgeon
General, Jesse Steinfeld.
As the nation's top medical
officer, Steinfeld regularly stood
up to industry pressure on public
health hazards like phosphates,
cyclamates and pesticides. But
Nixon wanted to give industry
cronies a break from Steinfeld's
unyielding positions. He couldn't
fire the Surgeon General so he
simply froze Steinfeld out of
policy-making decisions. Pre-
dictably, Steinfeld resigned his
position in disgust. Major health
policy decisions were then taken
over completely by the White
House and former President
Gerald Ford continued the White
House control.
IT WAS A White House
decision to begin the swine flu
inoculations. But the cure has
turned out to be more dangerous
than the disease. When hospital:!
began reporting strange cases of
paralysis associated with the
inoculations, the program was
abruptly suspended by em-
barrassed White House officials
on December 16,1976.
Our sources say that the
Surgeon General, conscientious
as he is about public health
hazards, would never have gone
ahead with the shots without a
more careful study of the side

Political Campaign Heating Up
Few matters are clear after a
week of dramatic political activ-
ity in Israel. The government is
now a caretaker one, after the
resignation of Prime Minister
Rabin. Moat political parties
want new elections, and even as
the President consults with
political leaders about the
possibility of forming a new
government, the Knesset may be
dissolved and elections scheduled
for May.
It is still possible that both the
Independent Liberal ministers,
who resigned from the govern-
ment a few hours before Rabin
submitted his own resignation to
the President, and the National
Religious Party ministers who
were ousted from the govern-
ment, will continue serving in
their ministerial capacity because
of a possible ruling of the
|- Supreme Court.
APART FROM these points,
the rest is less clear. The election
campaign has now begun. Early
elections appear to have caught
some parties by surprise, but
their leaders rallied quickly and it
now seems that the entire
country is pleased that the
inevitable has happened. Spring
elections will hopefully clear the
air and may even provide Israel
with a stronger government.
It is somewhat immaterial why
the Prime Minister decided to
dismiss the NRP ministers; it is
also less important to argue
whether this act was pre-
meditated or not, whether his
move was right or wrong. The
fact remains that the country is
now facing very tough elections.
The emergence of two new
parties, the Yigael Yadin and the
Arik Sharon groups, have caused
flTowing concern among the
established Labor and Likud
parties, and the inner struggle in
both these parties means that
their ability to contest the next
elections may be far more prob-
lematic than expected.
IN THE Labor Party, a clear
struggle for the leadership of the
party, and by implication, if
Labor emerges as the largest
party after the elections, Israel's
next Prime Ministers hip, in
shaping up.
Rabin is confident he will gain
the nomination. Defense Minister
Shimon Peres is organizing his
own campaign, and Abba Eban
has already announced his can-
didacy. The struggle will reach a
climax in the party convention
due to take place in February.
There is also a struggle over
the so-called 14 points which
form the foreign policy platform
of the Labor Party. While
"dovish" elements in the Labor
Party and Mapam have de-
manded major changes in the 14
points, other, more "hawkish"
leaders, including Golda Meir,
Moshe Dayan and Peres, have
warned against tampering with
the platform. This, too, will be
discussed in the party's con-
THE SITUATION in the other
established parties is not much
better. There are serious leader-
ship struggles inside the National
Religious Party, among the Inde-
pendent Liberals and even inside
Likud though in that party there
is a feeling that it is futile to
challenge the leadership of
Menahem Begin. All those who
have attempted to do so, among
them Ezer Weizman, Moshe
Tamir and Gen. Sharon, found

Yet, the making up of the
Knesset list of candidates will
mean a chance for all parties to
produce new faces, if not new
ideas. There is a growing feeling
that the coining elections will be
fought not so much on ideology
as on personalities. It is in this
sphere that the Sharon and Yadin
lists may have some advantage.
THEY ARE composed of
veteran names who nevertheless
are relative newcomers to
politics. They will probably

new ideology but by claiming

What about foreign policy?
Rabin had hoped to base his cam-
paign on defense and foreign
policy achievements. But in view
)f the early elections that could
hold up meaningful negotiations
though perhaps not a
ceremonial opening of a Geneva
Conference he may have to
concentrate on domestic eco-
nomic and social issues.
The Democratic Party of Yadin
will make these issues the heart
of the campaign. The Likud
expects to challenge the Labor
Party on all fronts, while Mapam
will stress peace at almost any
THE SMALL parties (Mrs
AJoni, the Socialist Group of
Sliav and Friedman, the Free
Center, Moked) may find them-
selves being squeezed out among
the larger blocks, unless they
decide to unite their efforts and
campaign together.
A dire prediction was made by
Secretary of the Labor Party
Zarmi. He feels that the next
elections will provide Israel with
a more problematic Knesset,
which may mean a less flexible
coalition government in which
there will be more participants
than at present.
For the first time there is some
doubt if Labor will maintop its
power and continue to be the
focus of any coalition-making in

U.S. in Official Protest
To France About Daoud
WASHINGTON (JTA) State Department
spokesman Robert Funseth said Jan. 12 that France's release of
Palestinian terrorist Abu Daoud "isn't going to stop our efforts
before the international community to present proposals to
urge compliance in dealing firmly and sternly with terrorists."
HE ALSO disclosed that the U.S. had conveyed an official
reaction to France which was "the reaction that we stated
publicly. That reaction, given a day earlier was an expression
ot dismay that "through a legal technicality" Daoud had
avoided interrogation by either Israel or West Germany on his
role in the 1972 Munich massacre. Funseth said that the U S
did not give the French government any advice prior to the
release of Daoud and remarked that it was "a decision for the
French courts to make."
Asked if there was any U.S. reaction to the fact that Daoud
was not arrested when he arrived in Algeria Jan. 11, Funseth
said Our position that all governments should take a stern
action against terrorists remains."

The Jewish Fbridian and S ho far of Greater Hollywood
Soviet Jewish Activists IRS's Lurie Will Speak at BB Luncheon
Compile Review of 1976
A massive review of 1976
written by seven Moscow Jewish
leaders, the fourth of its kind
since autumn 1973, reported that
despite attempts to repress it, a
revival of Jewish culture is
taking place in the Soviet Union,
and involves thousands of people
in many parts of the country.
Many young people who have
not yet applied to settle in Israel
l>elong to independent modern
Hebrew song groups; cultural
magazines circulate in samizdat
editions; books on Jewish
history, philosophy, belles-lettres
and literature which are brought
in from abroad pass from hand to
hand. In Kishinev, there is a
private Jewish theater group.
This is apart from the annual
Israel Independence Day
assemblies in the forests outside
' Moscow and the regular ulpanim
for the serious study of Hebrew.
On the question of emigration,
the report says that although the
Sovic. authorities made some
concessions prior to the Com-
munist Party Congress in
February, difficulties intensified
as soon as it was over, and
refuseniks, whose cases, ac-
I cording to the authorities, were
I due to be re-examined, had their
refusals confirmed. Also, the
I movements of activists were
restricted and their contacts with
[ the West became far more dif-
ficult. Tourists from the West
| wishing to meet would-be
| emigrants were harassed.
New difficulties also have
appeared in the procedure for
obtaining emigration documents.
A person may have to wait a year
or more before receiving the
invitation from relatives in
Israel, which the authorities
demand. The longer an applicant
has to wait, the more difficult his
situation becomes, a fact which
has an intimidating effect an
many would-be emigrants.
Since September, the author-
ities in a group of towns in the
Ukraine notably Kiev and
Odessa refuse to accept ap-
plications from people of any age
whose parents are not applying
'to emigrate with them. This
happens even when the parents
want their children to leave
without them. This objection is
based on a rigid interpretation of
the Helsinki agreement under
which the Soviet Union commits

itself to the principle of "reunion
of families."
The head of the All-Union
Ovir, V. Obidin, is quoted as
saying: "We are now putting a
stop to all arbitrary emigration.
In accordance with the decisions
of the Helsinki agreement, we
shall let people go only where it is
for reunification of families. And
a family, in accordance with the
code on marriage and family of
the USSR, consists only of
husband, wife and their un-
married children." The authors
conclude that if a truly free
emigration were allowed from the
Soviet Union very many more
Jews would leave.
Alvin D. Lurie, assistant com
missioner of the U.S. Internal
Revenue- Service, will be the
featured speaker and guest of
honor at the Inaugural Heritage

"This event will feature a top-
drawer panel of experts on estate
planning, particularly as affected
by the Tax Reform Act of 1976,"
said Fromberg, "and the
presence of Alvin Lurie will make
it possible for our B'nai B'rith
members to have the final and
authoritative word on the many
items of change in the new Act."
Serving on the panel with
Lurie will be Stanley Hagendorf,
associate professor of law at the
University of Miami; Martin J.
Nash, adjunct professor of tax
law at the University of Miami;
Wesley Steinman, insurance co-
ordinator for B'nai B'rith in the

Richard M. Zimmerman,
chairman of the Legacy Develop-
ment Committee for the Florida
region, has extended an in-
vitation to all members of the
Jewish community to be the
guests of B'nai B'rith at this
function. It is expected that
members of B'nai B'rith from all
over the country, especially the
Midwest and Northeast, will be
attending the affair.
The program will consist of
two parts. The Seminar on Estate
Planning will be held at 10 a.m.
with a discussion and question
period to follow. The luncheon
will take place at 12:30 p.m. with
Alvin Lurie as the guest speaker.
Lurie has been appointed to

Internal Revenue Service dealing
with Employee Plans and
Exempt Organizations. A writer
and lecturer, Lurie has been ad
mitted to practice before the
Supreme Court of the United
States, U.S. Tax Courts, and
many others.
The topics to be covered in the
Seminar will focus on the new
Tax Reform Act of 1976 and its
ramifications as they affect
changes in Capital Gains rules,
Unified Schedule of Estate and
Gift Tax rates, and Marital De-
ductions. The opportunity to
take advantage of the new law's

Question: What is the meaning
qf the word Genizah"?
Rose Cohen
Elizabeth, N.J.
Answer: Genizah is a Hebrew
word meaning hiding place or
a storeroom, usually connected
with the synagogue, for the
deposition of worn-out sacred
books. It is also the place for
storing books considered
heretical but which contain the
name of God and hence are too
sacred to be burned." (The
Encyclopedia of the Jewish
Religion, p.154.)
In the Mishnaic and Talmudic
times holy utensils and writings
which have passed out of use but
were too sacred to be destroyed
were hidden. During the Second
Temple period sacred writings
were apparently hidden in caves
especially in times of danger.
As is well known the Dead Sea
Scrolls were found in a cave in
Qumran near the Dead Sea. Sub-
sequently used sacred documents
were buried in the ground or
deposited in the walls, foun-
dations or attics of a Synagogue.
Such places of hiding for sacred
books are known as Genizot (pi.).
The best known is the Cairo
Genizah discovered in the Syna-
gogue of Fostat (old Cairo),
which was built in 1882 C.E. It
contained a large store of manu-
scripts first discovered in 1763
In 1896 some pages were
brought to Cambridge and Solo-
mon Schechter (1860-1916)
scholar and theologian recog
nized them as being from the
Hebrew original of the book of
Ben Sira which had been lost and
was known only in its Greek
translation. He traveled to Cairo
and after strenuous effort he
acquired some one hundred
thousand pages. Many more
Eages found their way to other
braries throughout the world.
"The Cairo Genizah was found
in the attic of the Ezra Syna-
gogue, whose worshippers had
preserved ancient Palestinian
customs, and in which Maimon-
ides, his son Abraham, and other
great scholars had taught. This
synagogue was built in 882 on the
ruins of a Coptic church sold to
the Jews. In 1890 it was rebuilt,
but the attic was not touched
The attic was situated at the end
of the women's gallery: it was
without doors or windows and
could only be reached by means
of a ladder through a large hole at
the side.
"The Cairo Genizah brought to
light literary treasures and
historical documents, including.
(1) most of the Hebrew Ben Sira;
(2) fragments of Aquila's Greek
translation of the Bible; (3) The
Covenant of Damascus;
(4) ancient Palestinian, Baby-
lonian, and Spanish piyyutim;
(6) a large number of documents
relating to the history of the Jews
of Israel and Egypt from the time
of the Islamic conquests until the
First Crusade, a period about
which nothing had previously
been known; (6) abundant
material on the history of Kara-
ism; (7) authentic documents
and the signatures of important
personages; (8) an exceptional
variety of historical and cultural
material, including Ashkenazi
piyyutim and writings (letters
and poems) from the 13th and
16th centuries in Judeao Ger-
man (YiddHW fffcW aWrdo-
paeidia Judaica, vol.7, p.406.)
The oldest dated manuscript
found in the Cairo Genizah was
from 760 C.F ""re were many
other finds lo. \in Genizot in
Crimea, Poland, North Africa,
etc. But these manuscripts have
been less successful because of
the climatic conditions in these
countries and soon rotted away.
However, the documents found in
the Judean caves and the Cairo
Genizah have been preserved by
the clear, dry climate.

French Envoy Snubs Israel
JERUSALEM (JTA) The visit to Israel by France's
Minister of Commerce and Economy Michel D'Ornano has
been postponed indefinitely for political reasons, it was an-
nounced here.
Government spokesmen said Israel suggested the post-
ponement of the visit, which was scheduled for Feb. 7, because
of the charged political atmosphere between the countries
following France's release of Palestinian terrorist Abu Daoud.
No new date for D'Ornanos visit has been set.

"I don't believe that there is a better way
to express your feelings than to actually go
to Israel....There is something special about
the Holy Land... .Those who go, come back
entirely different. They see something that
no words can describe."
So spoke Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister
of Israel, at the beginning of this Solidarity
Pilgrimage Year. Yet, what Rabin said is an
echo of what every person has felt who has
ever visited Israel. You know this.
If you don't you'll learn it at Pesach, when,
sitting at the Seder in Israel, every symbol
of this festival of freedom will take on
richness that almost aches.
You'll know the feeling when you join the
crowd and dance through the streets on
Purim or Independence Day.
You'll feel it on Shavuot, as the First
Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel
Fruits are paraded through the kibbutz
with so much bursting pride. And at the
Western Wall, where the ancient chanting
through the night seems to make centuries
melt away.
You'll know what "no words can de-
scribe" when you walk through the streets
of Israel at Sukkot, and find yourself sur-
rounded by beautiful Sukkot booths in
every yard and on every balcony.
You'll feel it at Chanukah, at the candle
lighting ceremony atop Mount Zion.
But you don't need a celebration to share
these experiences. Because every day of
Solidarity Year is a celebration of your
partnership with Israel.
And once you go and feel these things for
the first time, as many times as you return
will never be enough.

"would not advise anyone to

Asked whether he was satisfied
with the U.S. aid Israel receives,
Rabin said that "We deserve the
aid we get because Egypt and
Syria could not maintain their
military strength without
enormous aid from the Soviets
and the Arab oil states.
"We want to maintain a

Israel to defend itself by itself. I

orninq daily's columnist out of his water
Only on First Amendment grounds could
Charles Whited's column last Sunday in the
Miami Herald be defended. While I would
assert a mild sensitivity to the heading,
"Synagogue Sues for Their Dues" and a
little shudder over grammar my major
objection is that this usually perceptive writer
on human interest subjects was swimming in
waters far over his head.
As one who has written extensively on the
question of synagogue finances, delivered
papers to learned groups and been inter-
viewed on a number of occasions by both
daily newspapers, I could have told Whited to
file in his wastebasket what obviously was a
complaint to him from someone who was
IF IT seemed to be a good story that a
synagogue had sued an individual for non-
payment of dues, it surely would have been
handled better by the religion editor who, I
know, is familiar with the old tale that
membership in some synagogues
can cost more than some people
are asked to pay.
If it seemed to be in his area of
bleeding heart" concernand I
do not denigrate that concern it
is possible that closer in-
vestigation might have given him
reason to decide against
I could give him a good
example of that from a Miami
News story of five years ago
concerning another victim of
synagogue oppression the man
who had to take his Bar Mitzvah
to another synagogue because it
had refused to let the ritual take
place unless he paid up the $500
owing the synagogue. Righteous
indignation all around.
The New Carter Diplomacy
Wife of Simcha Dinitz
Given Southern Smooch
WASHINGTON (JTA) For most diplomats and
their wives at a White House reception last week, it was only a
handshake and a few words from President Carter. But Mrs.

kiss from the nation's chief executive.

Dinitz said. "I am so proud he kissed my wife." The Israeli

Ida Schneider and Phil Mintz enact a scene from "Der Yid-
mher Mikado," the Yiddish version of Gilber and Sullivan's

the writer's unvarnished state-
ment that "Bar Mitzvah recep-

scrutiny by Whited might have

was owing was the balance on a
year's dues. Possibly there were
other charges for direct services
FOR INSTANCE, there was a
wedding involved, according to
the story. There also, if one reads
closely, are two years of dues

figure of $235 might not then
seem so outrageous, even

surely motivate other Haleys,
and so this aesthetic distance is
of particular importance for us to
achieve, particularly because
imitators may not be as success-
ful as Haley meaning that
imitators may come up with less

more muscle instead.
We must achieve it, or we may

policies which recognize that
many people cannot meet the
rigidly high dues of many of our
congregations. Adon Taft, the
Herald's religion editor, once
quoted me as believing that those
with incomes around $10,000 a
year or less should not be asked
to contribute more than 1 per-
cent, and those between that base
and $20,000 should feel no strain
at 1.5 percent.
Among the favorable letters
was one which disputed the idea
that "a retiree" could afford the 1
percent on a $10,000 income
$100 a year to support the syna-
gogue of his choice. It gives one
an idea of the priorities our
people choose.
AS A synagogue admin-
istrator, I would not favor the
course of action taken by Beth
David to recover what it feels is
rightfully due it. Not only is the
publicity injurious which is
really no matter if one is right
but it seems to me to negate the
"fair share" policy which is a
keystone of that fine congre-
gation's membership philosophy.
What that means is that
everyone is asked to contribute,
voluntarily, a sum that reflects
that person's expendable income.
Experience tells us that a fair
number do just that, a few even
more, but also that there are
those who cannot meet any
ethical test, whether it is relating
to synagogue obligations or to
life in general.
IN THE final analysis, the
synagogue's role is to educate its
people to live by the moral and
ethical standards of Judaism.
If we have to go to court to
enforce those standards then we
have failed, and we should take
our losses, quietly, as most
synagogues do.

BUT WHAT is less evident is
that, in some ways, the non-

more. Orthodox students, though
resentful of the situation, have a
[ clear choice. They will not attend
the lab and what they miss is a
simple loss.
Non-traditional students,
though, are forced to decide
between strict observance and
flagrant and public dis-
regard for their tradition.
Students who honestly cannot
say they will not write on the
Sabbath day, but nonetheless
hold it in some regard, are
coaxed, and in some cases simply
forced, to give up their oppor-
tunity for personal religious
To argue that in most cases
they do so willingly is to ignore
not only the covert pressures, but
also the fact that they would not
have done so had the school not
asked them to. Furthermore, the
frequent practice of accepting
only traditional religious
practices as excuses for absence
from specified activities puts the
school in the absurd positon of
defining a norm for the individual
practice of Judaism.
Because religious coercion s
repugnant to the majority of
Americans, it became obvious,
after the impact of Harvard's
"Yom Kippur War" had passed,
that the above analysis could
provide a powerful tool for those
who were ready to challenge dis-
crimination against Jews on
not long in coming and it ap-
peared, not surprisingly, at that
same university by the placid and
polluted Charles.
Harvard Medical School had
I always held its Class Day cere-
monies on a Saturday morning in
May, and had no reason to do
otherwise this year. Of the 166
I students in the graduating class
labout one-quarter was Jewish,
Ibut only a handful were
[traditionally observant.
Nevertheless, a number pf other
>tudents had strong Jewish
As a first step, a letter to the
r'ean was drawn up requesting
In alternate date. It was ex-
plained that the Orthodox
Students and their parents could
pot attend and that the other
Pews in the class were being
fsked to publicly reject and defile
Iheir traditional Sabbath day.
The letter was circulated for a few
ays among a number of
Jtudents of all four classes and
roximately 40 signatures
TO ATTEMPT was made to
rculate the letter to the entire
ludent body, only to demon-
Irate that the issue was of sub-
antial concern. The Dean, after
I few weeks of thought, referred
matter to the Student-
Students Bum Rap
Faculty Committee, a group with
little real power except in in-
stances where the Dean prefers
not to take the heat. The Dean's
letter of transmittal suggested to
As with most good politicians,
the Dean would never have pro-
posed a vote unless he knew that
the outcome would match his
desires. Clearly Robert Ebert
realized that the 75 percent of the
student body that was not
Jewish would vote over-
whelmingly for a Saturday
exercise simply on the basis of
convenience. He saw
"democracy," in this case, as a
way to avoid granting the
students' request.
The crucial vote in the
Student-Faculty Committee was
taken on this issue. Some argued
that a free vote was the only fair
way to decide on an issue af-
fecting all. The Jewish students
replied that the result was a fore-
gone conclusion and such a
course was equivalent to
rejecting the request.
A BLACK Associate Dean, a
student of the struggle for black
rights in this country, carried the
debate one step further. "These
students are telling you," he said,
"that they think holding Class
Day on the Sabbath of 25 percent
of the class is morallv wrong. If
the class votes in favor of doing it
anyway, will that make it right?
"The Bill of Rights is in the
U.S. Constitution to prevent the
majority from 'democratically'
voting away the minority's
rights. If you think they are
wrong, say so. But don't pass the
buck to a class referendum. There
are some places where
'democracy' just doesn't belong."
On a squeaker of a vote, the com-
mittee agreed to decide on the
issue itself.
THE PROCESS began ot
weighing the Jewish students'
rights against a number of other
factors. Sunday was ruled out as
an alternative because the com-
mittee felt it would violate the
Christian students' rights.
Though the argument is invalid
the Christian notion of the
Sabbath in no way prohibits
participation in public events
the Jewish students conceded the
point and gathered support for
later votes. .
A weekday was the other
alternative. The objection was
raised that exercises on a week-
day would entail time lost from
work for the parents of the
student *-odv. The Jewish

A CRUSTY old New England

question. "If the Jews don't want

now another group comes along
and says that this violates their

renal physiologist had the final
say. "You are asking us to do
something that will incon-
venience some people for the
benefit of others. Are you so sure
you are right that you are willing
to take the responsibility for
that?" The Jewish students had
the advantage of conviction,
knowing that for too long Jews
had fought for everybody's rights
but their own. They answered
with an impressively firm, "Yes."
When the final vote was taken
to change the date of Class Day
from Saturday, May 29, to
Thursday, May 27, the motion
passed handily and the young
physiologist voted "yes," too.
It works. Tell people that you
want something changed and
they will ignore you. Use their
own value system to explain why
the situation is unjust, and they
often feel obliged to help you
change things. One can only hope
that the example provided here
will serve as a model for action by
concerned Jews on other college
campuses, and in the working
world as well.
