mpaign '77: The Great Jewish Adventure-
". till every Jew in America
is with usT'
Justice Louis Brandeis
The challenge of 1977 is to know that we are
links in the chain of generations that we
transcend geography in expressing our unity
with the people of Israel and that we have
the ability to make impossible dreams come
true ... if we act together in strength, and
truly believe that Jewish destiny is in Jewish
hands.
This is an affirmation and challenge that
will be tested anew this year. For as our com-
munity undertakes its Combined Jewish
Appeal-Israel Emergency Fund campaign,
we are like the guardians of Israel who can
neither sleep nor slumber.
THE MEANING of Entebbe, the meaning
of "This Year in Jerusalem," the meaning of
oar response to those who branded Zionism a
form of racism, is that we CAN torn ad-
versity to opportunity that we CAN turn
anxiety to hope.
For as our beloved Golds Meir says: we
should have no illusions, for there are those
who keep reminding us who we are. "If there
is one thing we have learned as a people, it is
to remember even that which we did not
individually experience."
It is an admonition we must remember
and not once forget. Today, the Jewish com-
munity of America is Israel's rampart.
Israel, in turn, gives our life a special sense of
value while assuring our future.
BUT IN a Jewish homeland, as in our com-
munity, people do not live by breed alone.
Our community talks of human needs
halfway around the block, halfway around
the world: because if the needs of the Jewish
' people do not find us as one, they make us
onel
This is our reward for giving. This is the
basic tenet of Jewish life: Mitzvah. And in a
voluntary community such as ours, this
obligation this duty this responsibility
is absolute.
Today our community's CJA-IEF encom-
passes the totality of the Jewish community.
Yet it is unthinkable that in our community,
with our strength, so many Jewish families
are able to but do not participate in the
CJA-IEF. Is it possible to be considered a
committed Jew without giving if one is able?
So come bet with us. Call the Jewish
Federation of South Broward. Join us; be a
part of this great Jewish adventure! GIVE
TO THE 1977 COMBINED JEWISH
APPEAL-ISRAEL EMERGENCY FUND.

Rep. Burke Protests Soviet
Seizure of Sharansky
Rep. J. Herbert Burke (R.-
Fla.) has officially protested the
seizure, last week by Soviet
security police, (KGB) of
Anatoly Sharansky, a leading
spokesman for Soviet Jews
seeking exit visas to live in
Israel.
The Soviet Jewry Committee
of the Jewish Federation of South
Broward urged Rep. Burke to
send a letter to General Secretary
Leonid Brezhnev of the Central
Committee of the Communist
Party, deploring the detention of
Sharansky by the KGB.
"... Mr. Sharansky has
been the target of systematic
harrassment by officials of the
Soviet government. On March 4.
1977, Is vestia published an
infamous letter accusing Mr.
Sharansky and other prominent
Soviet Jews, along with two
American diplomats, of lending
themselves to espionage and
treasonous activities against the
Soviet state. These charges are
absurdly and transparently
without foundation,'' Burke
staled in his letter.
CONTINUING, Burke said
". His detention constitutes a
serious violation of the Helsinki
Agreement. In the spirit of that
agreement. I urge you to bring
about the imediate release of Mr.
Sharansky and the expedition of
his exit permit. Failure to re-
lease Mr. Sharansky will surely
engender widespread protests
among the American people and
their elected representatives in
Congress. And it will retard the
progress toward improved
relations between our two
countries."

REP. BURKE entered the
official protest on the floor of the
House of Representatives on
March 17, stating that "this
move represents yet another
attempt by Soviet authorities to
challenge President Carter's
outspoken support of dissidents
in the Soviet Union and
throughout Eastern Europe.
Burke indicated that
Americans would be false to this
country's political values and
traditions if "we were to stand
silent in the face of this kind of
political oppression Let us
continue the American tradition
of freedom Let us cry out
with one voice a protest against
this most recent example of
tyranny against the spirit of
man. In conscience, we can do no
less," he said.

I Here on Behalf of Soviet POC's
The wife and brother in-law of
Soviet activist, and now
prisoner, Anatoly Sharansky,
will be in South Florida to lead a

Elaine Pit tell. chairman of the
Soviet Jewry Committee of the
Jewish Federation of South
Broward, called for "over-
whelming support of the plight of
Soviet Jews. I urge every man,
woman and child in the South
Broward community to come out
and show the Sharansky family
that Jews here care about our
brothers and sisters in the Soviet
Union."
Mrs. Pitted said that
Sharansky and his wife have been
separated since their wedding
day several years ago, when Mrs.
Sharansky was permitted to
emigrate to Israel. Sharansky
was recently arrested and is
currently being held in the in-
prison in
famous Lefortovo
Moscow.

being sponsored by the Soviet
Jewry Committee of the Jewish
Federation of South Broward and

munity Relations Committee.

Jewish Family Institute of the Jewish Federation of South
Broward presents a panel discussion, open to the public at 7:30
p.m., Sunday, May 1, at Temple Sinai of Hollywood.
Rose Marie Goodman, chairman of the event, said that
Tamara Cohen, a local psychologist, will be the panel moderator
and will discuss the "Psychology of Aging."
OTHER panel members will include: Melvin E. Weinstein, a
tax attorney, who will describe "the legalities of Aging";
Miriam Zatinsky, director of the South Beach Jewish Com-
munity Center, who will discuss the "Pleasures of Aging"; and
Reva Wexler. director of the JFSB Women's Division, who will
describe the "Projections for the Future" of the aged in South
Broward.
Mrs. Goodman said that many men and women suffer what
they consider to be a trauma, because of the passing of time. She
said that this need not be, and the panel members will tell the
participants why aging gracefully can be an enjoyable portion of
one's life.

group of Soviet emigrants living
in Vienna praised Austria for its
hospitality and denounced as
slanderous" a petition of the
heads of 87 Soviet Jewish
families who want to return to
the Soviet Union-
Austria grants asylum to
everybody who is persecuted for
political, religious, social or
ethnic reasons." the emigrants

tary General Kurt Waldheim
asking him to send a human
rights commission to Austria to
conduct on-the-spot investigation

Referring to this petition, the
emigrants said: "Austria, as a

Soviet Union will always refuse
to admit commissions that want

Rumania's Jews Celebrate Passover
Despite Earthquake Destruction
and Passover food parcels to over
BUCHAREST Passover
was a sad event for the 700
Jewish families in this city whose
rooms or apartments were
damaged by the March 4 earth-
quake The Jewish community is
mourning over one hundred dead,
many hundreds more are
homeless and living temporarily
with friends and relatives under
precarious conditions.
But Seders were there. The
Federation of Rumanian Jewish
Communities, led by Grand
Rabbi Moses Rosen, together
with the American Joint Dis-
tribution Committee were
determined to do everything
possible to enable every
Rumanian Jew to celebrate
Passover.
AS EARLY as January the
community received 150 tons of
matzoh as well as Passover wine
from Israel, sent by JDC as a
gift, financed with Combined
Jewish Appeal Israel Emergency
Fund money.
Part of the matzoh and wine
w Fortuna and Mamulari Syna
gogues. They are no longer func-
tioning as synagogues, and both
were severely damaged by the
earthquake On the morning after
the disaster, the staff of the
Bucharest Jewish Community
moved their Passover supplies to
safe premises. Fortunately, a
major part of the matzoh and
wine were saved.
/ Two of the basement rooms of
the Negru Voda Nursing Home,
which was badly damaged, had
also been used for storing
matzoh. These were quickly
moved elsewhere and the two
rooms were hastily converted
into an emergency nursing ward
for the patients from the third
floor, which was unsafe and had
to be evacuated.
THIS YEAR as in previous
years, the Rumanian Jewish
Federation distributed matzoh

Not even in death.
Yahrzeit is the Jewish ritual observed
upon the anniversary of the death of a parent
or close relative.
A candle is lit and burns for twenty four
hours in the home of the family. As it burns, a
son or daughter of Israel is remembered and
loved. And the Faith and the destiny of the
Jewish people becomes unforgetable.
Each time a Yahrzeit candle is lit, it is the
fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham. An
assurance of new generations for all time.
For the flame is eternal. It symbolizes
Jews as a people who will not die. Not even
in death.

Why Schoenau Closed
VIENNA (JTA) Austrian Chancellor Bruno Kreisky disclosed
thai one of the reasons the Jewish Agency-run tranist camp for Soviet
Jewish emigres at Schoenau was closed down in 1973 was the fact that
emigrants staying there had no choice of where to resettle. Every Jew
[who emigrates via Austria has the right to decide where he wants to
I go, Kreisky said at a press conference on his return from a visit to the
I nlted States.
I The Schoenau camp was closed after Arab terrorists took several
I Jews hostage on a train from the Soviet Union and demanded that the
camp be shut down. The Austrian authorities complied on the grounds
I of security and since then Jewish emigres are housed in transit camps
I under Austrian supervision.
Kreisky said that "It has happened that in some months about 40
percent of Soviet emigrants decided not to go to Israel but to settle
I somewhere else."
He said that while that may make many Israeli circles unhappy,
"every emigrant who passes Austria is granted asylum here and can
decide for himself where he wants to resettle. Austria insists that
I every emigrant must have the right to decide where he wants to go."
I While in the U.S., Kreisky referred to rumors of a USSR-Israel secret
I agreement to curb the number of emigrating Jews. He said here,
I however, that he had no firm evidence confirming the rumors._________

Dr. K: 'Jews Have
Suffered Most'
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Former Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger, accepting an
honorary doctorate in philosophy
from Israel's Weizmann
Institute, said that "no people
have suffered more" from the
absence of peace "than the
Jewish people."
Urging peace and "recon-
ciliation" in the Middle East,.
Kissinger said that the Weiz-
mann Institute, located initially
at the desert's edge in an area
that is now cultivated, "can
symbolize not only the past of
Israel, but the future of the
Middle East at a time when we
must be concerned with security
and dare not yet be certain that
peace is possible. It symbolizes
what must be the future for all
the peoples in the Middle East."
KISSINGER, making his first
address since leaving the State
Department, spoke after
receiving the degree that was
awarded him three years ago.
The honor was conferred upon
him by Dr. Michael Sela,
Weizmann Institute president,
on the occasion of the 100th
anniversary of the birth of Dr.
.Chaim Weizmann, Israel's fir
President. Among those joining
the convocation was Sir Marcus
J. Sieff, chairman of the
Institute's board of governors,
whose parents were the
Institute's original founders.
"As the first Jewish Secretary
of State, my relationship with the
State of Israel and sometimes
with the Jewish community in
the United States has inevitably
been complicated." Kissinger
said in his extemporaneous
remarks. "Yet none of us who are
conscious of the travail and the
suffering and the future of the
Jewish people can ever forget
that the future of the Jewish
|K-ople is inextricably linked
witht he future of peace and
justice and freedom and security
for all people."
A PRE-RECORDED address
was heard from Meyer Weisgal,
the Institute's Chancellor and a
disciple of Weizmann who was ill
in Israel and could not be
present. In paying tribute to
Kissinger's "shuttle diplomacy,
his daily exertions on our
behalf," Weisgal recalled an
arduous 11-day peace mission
into the desert near Aqaba made
by Weizmann in 1918 the basis
of an historic but short-lived
concorde reached with Emir
Faisal, then leader of the Arab
world and later King of Iraq
and characterized Kissinger's
"almost superhuman efforts" in
the Middle East as a continuum
that sought "to restore the spirit
that was created between
Weizmann and Faisal" nearly 60
years ago.

The Jewish Floridian and Shofar of Greater Hollywood
Friday, April 8, 1977
The Bond of Judaism
Harry Grossman, of Hollywood, expresses the views
of the Editors.
Our slogan for this year's Combined Jewish Appeal-
Israel Emergency Fund campaign is Am Echad, "We Are
One." It is most appropriate, for if we fail to practice it,
we will become "none." We are an old people, and time
and again, we have continued, and shall continue to amaze
the world, by the mere fact of our survival.
We have outlived ancient Egypt and its bondage of
our ancestors, the Babylonian enslavement, the slaughter
of the Romans, the ravages of the Spanish Inquisition, the
Pogroms of Czarist Russia and the ovens of Hitler, and
God willing, will overcome the greasy rope of Arab oil.
How is this achieved? What is the magic formula that
we possess that enables us to overcome insurmountable
obstacles? Everyone of our enemies has disappeared. We
have survived. At one and the same time, we are admired,
envied, and in frustration, hated.-
WE HAVE given the world a code of ethics; the Ten
Commandments. We have produced a Jesus for the
Christian world. We have given to the world some of the
greatest authors, mathematicians, philosophers and
scientists. Yes. even a Karl Marx for the Communists. At
the same time, we have had to overcome such baseless lies
as Jews make bad soldiers. They can't fight. Tell that to
the Israeli. A Jew can fight if he has something to fight
for, like four wars in 28 years, against odds of 40 to 1.
Another one. Jews can't be farmers. (They forget to
mention that Jews were not allowed to own land.) Ask the
Kibbutznick who cleared the swamps and the desert and
converted it to vineyards.
Now once again the big lie, Israel is a Zionist state,
and Zionism is Racism. Therefore, it should become sub-
servient to a group of terrorists and murderers under the
name of the PLO. And the tone setters for the world, the
so-called United Nations, has the audacity, the pure
unmitigated gall to censor Israel for its raid on Entebbe.
It's like saying to a father, "Your have no right to save
your child from a murderous insane kidnapper, for you did
not get his permission to enter his gate."
SO DESPITE all of these, what has kept us alive as a
people the inherent and inbred feeling of Tzedakah which
does not mean charity, but justice, when one Jew gives
Tzedakah to another, he is meting out justice. When one
Jew is in need, he turns to another for assistance. This has
been with us since time immemorial and has been handed
down to us and will continue from us.
This is the golden thread that binds us, one to
another. It is invisible, but it has been, still is, and will
continue to be. When over 100 of our fellow Jews were
again singled out fo annihilation by their captors, our
Israeli brothers stretched that cord for 2,500 miles and by
an unprecedented military feat, rescued our brothers.
OUR MISSION is to stretch our cord to those heroic
Jews living in the State of Israel so that they can continue
to exist as our Shomrim, our watchmen on the hills of
Golan, the shores of the Mediterranean, the 6ands of Sinai
and on the rim of the Dead Sea. We must come to their
aid, otherwise they will be strangled economically by a tax
rate, which is the highest in the world. They have suffered
casualties of life and limb without complaint: but they
have to depend on our help for their survival.
We cannot, we must not, we dare not, let them down,
for as sure as the sun rises and sets, if the Arabs succeed
in the economic strangulation, or defeat them in battle,
you and I, and our children and their children, will also
disappear from the earth. I just say to you that your
heritage and your conscience will not let you do this.
Our Answered Prayer
When will Israel's most recently-acquired freedom
emerge unchallenged by the peoples of the world? By
Arab? By Russian? Even by those who presume to be our
friends but work for Israel's suicide by degree? That, only
future history can recount.
But the prayer offered up by Jews everywhere will
surely implore that it emerge now and forever.

The New Politics of Moderation
By LEO MINDLIN
It's pure speculation on my part, only a hunch, but I
believe there was a hit list names of career diplomats in
the State Department and of key personnel in the Pen-
tagon who are anti-Israel and /or anti-Semitic, and whom
U .S. Sen. Richard Stone wanted ousted.

Number 7
Was there such a list?
SEN. STONE repeats the
question I have asked him as if he
were trying to remember the flap
that the alleged hit list created in
the first place and replies: "Let's
say that many Arab diplomats in
Washington have a far higher
regard for me than some of the
folks in the State Department
and the Pentagon."
The reply doesn't quite fit the
question, but it is a perfect
answer.
Again speculating, I conclude
that Stone tested his fledgling
wings almost as soon as Presi-
dent Carter appointed him to the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee and Chairman John
Sparkman's committee gave him
the chairmanship of the Sub-
Committee on Middle Eastern
Affairs.
"I DIDNT jump at it," says
Sen. Stone. "I might have ac-
cepted the chairmanship of the
Subcommittee on Western Hemi-
spheric Affairs instead. It was a
matter of where I could do the
most good."
What decided him?
"Naturally, my overwhelming
concern for the Middle East and,
of course, for Israel."
The problem is that, as a Jew,
the appointment might have been
self-defeating it might have
neutralized his effectiveness.
IT WAS Egypt's Ambassador
to the United States Ashraf
Ghorbal who personally urged
Stone to take the chairmanship of
the Middle East Subcommittee.
Ghorbal is one of many Arab
diplomats in Washington and
New York with whom Stone has
personal and cordial relation-
ships. There are others, and he
has been building them carefully
since he first came to
Washington from Jordan,
Syria, Saudi-Arabia, even from
the Arab League.
This is quite an accomplish-
ment in the face of the fact that
Stone's pro-Israel sympathies are
legion. "But I have pro-Arab
sympathies, too," he says flatly,
adding, "Having a pro-Arab
point of view is no crime.
"In fact," he amplifies, "it is
most useful if the decisions that
will have to be made in the
Middle East are to have any
meaning at all."
THEN YOU are coming to
trust the Arabs? I ask.
"Trust," he says, making a
fine distinction in definitions,
"will have to be built and earned,
but moderation, overt action
geared toward compromise,
needs to be recognized. There are
some moderate Arab leaders on
the horizon today. We must
recognize them. It is not a
question of whether or not we
trust them only that we should
be willing to listen to them and to
move cautiously toward dealing
with them."
As moderates, he lists Egypt's
Sadat; surprisingly, Syria's
Assad, who Stone says, has
recently vastly improved his
treatment of Syria's Jewish
population as a sign of his
willingness to come to some kind
of an Israel-Arab accord, "and
who deserves our thanks and
appreciation" for taking these
new directions none of which
he has sought to publicize; and
Jordan's Hussein."
OF HUSSEIN: He,
especially, seems poised to be a
SEN. STONE
constructive force" in an Israel-
Arab rapprochement provided he
is "invited by other Arab leaders
into their ultimate face to face
negotiations with Israel"
Stone attributes the rapid
movement toward a Middle East
peace to President Carter and
Carter's stand on human rights,
which Stone holds in awesome
regard something like a divine
inspiration which almost no one
could have foreseen in Carter in
the days of the presidential
campaign.
Official Washington, what he
cynically calls "the cocktail
circuit," is apparently these days
"laughing behind its hands" at
Carter's newest and perhaps
boldest U.S. move in foreign
affairs since World War II.
"EVEN THOUGH." Stone
concedes, "we may suffer some
Metternich style balance of
power loss of points, we must stilly
support President Carter in this
human rights linkage between
America's principles and the
business we do abroad.
If we disdain the linkage, if we
do business with tyrants who

Temple Solel Religious School
in Hollywood aimed for
maximum student participation
at their model Seder this year.
Each student had an opportunity
to make an item for the Seder
table and had a speaking part in
the Seder service.
A craft project assigned to
iach grade was displayed and
used at each model Seder. Clay,
play-doh. crepe paper, con-
struction and shelf paper were
employed to create Pesach
I ceremonial objects including
'seder plates and symbols,
candlesticks, matzoh covers,
wine cups, and flowers. One fifth
grade class made the pictorial
Hagaddahs used by the younger
children at their model seder.
These were designed to be taken
home, and they contained pic-
tures that could be colored.
The most challenging project
was the baking of matzoh by
sixth and seventh graders.

Israeli Bank Ups Profits Pro-Arab Group Cuts Ties to Racist Resolve
Bank Hapoalim B.M., one of
Israel's leading banks, increased
its net profits by 52.9 percent in
1976 to IL 200.5 million ($22.9
million) in the year ending Dec.
31, 1976, Jacob Levinson, chair-
man of the board, announced.
The bank's good performance,
in what was described as a year of
"intense competition for funds
among major Israeli banks,-' was
further indicated by strong
advances in total assets and
deposits. Total assets rose by
52.8 percent to IL 62.8 billion
($7.2 billion). Total consolidated
assets reached IL 63.36 billion
($7.24 billion), compared to IL
42.47 billion (S5.98 billion) in the
previous year.
Deposits grew to IL 55.91
billion ($6.38 billion). Total loans
outstanding rose to IL 42.50
billion ($4.85 billion), an increase
of 51.5 percent.
The management of the bank
has decided to recommend the
distribution to the shareholders
of ordinary and ordinary pre-
ferred shares of a stock dividend
(bonus shares) at the rate of 20
percent. This would be in additi-
on to a cash dividend on the or-
dinary shares at the rate of 12.5
percent, and on the ordinary pre-
ferred shares at the rate of 15.5
percent. Both dividends are to be
paid out of 1976 net profits.
Reviewing the bank's domestic
and international operations,
Levinson noted that 1976 had
been a year of continued ex-
pansion both in Israel and
abroad. Over the past eight years
Bank Hapoalim's total resources
have grown about 33-fold.
The year's progress was also
reflected, the chairman said, by
the growing network of sub-
sidiaries, branches and repre-
sentative offices abroad. The
New York branch completed its
second year of operation with
gratifying results. As a con-
sequence of the bank's ex-
perience, a second New York
branch is to be opened soon.
In tandon, both the West End
and City branches continued to
strengthen their individual
positions; the first in trade and
business between the United
Kingdom and Israel, the second
in the areas of international trade
and the money market. Bank
Hapoalim (Switzerland) Ltd., a
wholly owned subsidiary in
Zurich, which began operations
in June of 1976, reported net
profits by the end of the year of
approximately SFRS 100,000,
and total assets of SFRS 128.9
million.
In Toronto the bank opened a
representative office to facilitate
and stimulate the growth of busi-
ness relations between Canada
and Israel. The bank also
maintains representative offices
in Buenos Aires. Sao Paolo, and
Caracas, and a subsidiary in the
Cayman Islands.
Ampal- American Israel
Corporation, which has been
successfully mobilizing invest-
ment funds for Israeli enterprise-
since joining the Bank Hapoalii:.
Croup three years ago, paid a
dividend of 10 percent.
The Ampal group has bt,
active in the South Florida area
since the opening nearly one year
ago of a regional office in Miami
Beach under the direction of
Shmuel Krner.

Israeli Arabs in Jordan
JERUSALEM (JTA) An Israeli Arab journalist who
visited Jordan recently reported that he was told by a senior
official in Amman that the Arabs would modify their attitude
toward Israel if Israel were more considerate of the Palestinian
problem.
Talkik Khuri, a correspondent for Yediot Achronot, said he
was told that the Arabs would take Israel's security problems
into consideration.
SO FAR, Israel has been concerned only with its security
and the Arabs have dealt only with the Palestinian problem, the
source said, but the time has come for both to be more realistic,
Khuri said he was told. He said he got a warm welcome from
By MAURICE SAMUELSON
LONDON (JTA) The
leading pro-Arab organization in
Britain has dissociated itself in
part from the United Nations
General Assembly resolution
equating Zionism with racism
The Council for Arab-British
Understanding (CABU), in its
latest annual report, conceded
that Zionism in Europe and
Russia "may indeed have had the
character of a national liberation
movement, its aim being to free
Jews in the diaspora from
Western and Christian per-
secution and to promote a Jewish
national renaissance."
HOWEVER, in Palestine,
Zionism had a different
character, "that of a colonizing,
settler movement which aimed at
dispossessing and supplanting or
subjecting the native
population," the report said.
It added that the November,
1975, UN resolution obscured the
distinction. "To be effective,
criticism of Zionism must be
specific, not generalized. It
should specifically exclude those
manifestations of Zionism which
are benign or at least innocuous
and should concentrate on those
which unquestionably are im-
perialistic and reprehensible."
THE CABU admitted that in
Britain the Arabs got the worst
of the argument unleashed by the
UN's anti-Zionist resolution.

NEW YORK (JTA) -
Dr. Mikhail Stern, who was
arrested in May, 1974, and
sentenced in December,
1974, to eight years in a
labor camp on charges of
"bribery and swindling,"
was released by the
Ukrainian Supreme Court
on ''humanitarian
grounds," it was reported
by the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry (SSSJ) and
the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews (UCSJ).
The court stated that it
had taken into consider-
ation the 58 year old en-
docrinologist's ill health,
age and the fact that he was
a "first offender."
THE SSSJ and UCSJ said
Stern was suffering in the labor
camp from tuberculosis, ulcers,
bladder stones and spinal and
heart disorders. A month ago, he
was placed in a punishment cell
for 10 days for writing a letter
which was never delivered to his
wife, Ida, describing the horrors
of the camp conditions, the two
groups reported.
"Dr. Stern was a scapegoat in
the classic sense," the SSSJ and
UCSJ said. "He was tried
because his sons had applied for
exit visas to go to Israel. It was a
clear warning to all Jews in the
Ukraine who might seek exit."
Furthermore, they said, his
conviction followed a two-week
"kangaroo court" trial in Vin-
nitsa in which the sentence was
already common knowledge
before the proceedings ended and
at which almost every prose-
cution witness recanted his testi-
mony on the stand.
"The release of Dr. Stern
vindicates the widespread
Western campaign on his
behalf," the SSSJ and UCSJ
said.
STERN'S RELEASE came 11
days before sympathizers were to
have held an international
tribunal on the case. Among
'.hose who were expected to par-
' icipate were Jean-Paul Sartre,
whose committee for the release
of Stern included 50 Nobel Prize
winners, exiled Soviet dissidents
Viktor Nekrasov, Alexander
Galich, Leonid Plyushch and
Stern's two sons.
Soviet Telegram Received
A telegram expressing sincere thanks for support of Soviet
Jews was received by Mr. and Mrs. Gary Karch of Hollywood.
The Karchs and Mr. and Mrs. Robert Block had adopted Victor
and Batsheva Elistratov of Moscow, as part of the Soviet
Adopt a Family Program of the Jewish Federation of South
Broward's Soviet Jewry Committee.
Repeatedly they have sent telegrams and letters of support to
the Elistratovs signing their names and also the name of
Hollywood Mayor David Keating. The text of the first telegram
received, after three years of contact, reads as follows:
"We are grateful to you and Mayor David Keating for
timely support. Victor and Batsheva."

later became a first sergeant
during the Palestinian- Israel

lieutenant in the war following
Israel's statehood.

ment he had been staying and
who had also been accused of
working with the CIA, was one of

Israel Volunteers Are One In Heart, Mind, Purpose I
A new movement of volunteers, whose
slogan is "One People One Heart," is
being organized all over Israel. The
movement's aim is a very ambitious one:
that the project "One People" should reach
10,000 hearts, or 10,000 volunteers.
The volunteers represent all age groups,
but are mostly young people. Our Israel
reporter Baruch Nadel says: "I interviewed
Clara Yarkoni, who is only 12 years old. She
said that she volunteered for the project 'One
People One Heart' because she thinks that
the people must be united. Besides, she
generally likes to help people and says that
everyone should demonstrate willingness to
be of service to the nation.
Clara volunteered for the project "One
People One Heart" because she thinks
that the people must be united. Besides, she
generally likes to help people and says that
everyone should demonstrate willingness to
be of service to the nation.
Clara has a dreamy look and is thought of
as a real gem by her friends. Clara says: "It
took six weeks before we really got into the
work. We had meetings of the volunteers and
the project was explained to us. My
volunteer work consists of tutoring two
brothers from the third and first grades.
They live in Kiryat Yovel, in my neighbor-
hood. I see them twice a week for two-three
hours at a time.
Originally, Clara insisted she wanted to
work with a large family, but there was an
ugent need to help these two children and so
she was sent to them temporarily. Clara is in

the seventh grade in school. Several other 12-
and 13-year-olds followed Clara's example
and today they represent a large part of the
160 volunteers in Jerusalem. Clara is, indeed,
a gem, even among the volunteers.
Clara says: "Tutoring the children does
not prevent me from doing my own
homework. The tutoring is done in time I
would otherwise give to recreational ac-
tivities. The children's father is blind and the
mother has poor vision, too, but she has an
outside job. However, the home is well kept.
The father tries to be of help to the children
but is handicapped by his blindness. There is
also a younger brother in the family. I help
the two boys with their school work and also
give them additional homework to enable
them to make greater progress.''
I Clara's father came from Spain and her
i mother from Morocco. She is pretty, very
; intelligent and shy. She says: "At first, the
' children didn't want to study. But they
behaved well towards me.
"After a while they began to like their
lessons and progressed in their reading. The
older boy is also doing well in arithmetic.
Originally, I would have preferred working
with a large family. But I am happy to do
what I'm doing. However, some time in the
future I think I will go to a large family to
help it get ahead in Israeli society. Here I do
only taching, but in a large family I could
also be of help in the household. My mother
said that if I do volunteer work with a large
family, she would welcome them in our home
as friends."

Foreign Aid Gap
Between Israel,
Egypt is Closing
WASHINGTON (JTA) Egypt is earmarked by the
^rter Administration to receive $771,022,000 in economic
curity assistance and agricultural commodities during the
kal year beginning next Oct. 1, according to statistics ob-
Sned by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency at the State
ppartment.
This figure is only $14 million less than the funding in the
le categories for Israel. As has been made known previously.
jVael was listed to get $511,043,000 in the last Ford Admin-
^ration budget but this amount was boosted to $785 million
the Carter Administration. Jordan is earmarked for
f.659.000 in economic aid; Lebanon. $8,800,000; and Syria.
1.175.000.
THESE STATISTICS include allocations of agricultural
bimodities under the U.S. Food for Peace Program also
k>wn 08 "P.L. 480," which is the identifying number of the
p. Public Law establishing the assistance projects.
Israel is booked for $11,943,000 in P.L. 480 money, fo-
lding $2,743,000 in grants for Gaza and the West Bank,
lypt's allocation is about 14 times as much. $146,022,000.
idan is earmarked for $7,659,000 and Syria for $19,175,000.
i of Lebanon's fund is in this category.
Military statistics, previously announced, show Israel is to
leivc $1 billion, equally divided between credit and gift;
Men $75 million in credits and $56.5 million in grants.
MILITARY ASSISTANCE is expected to be asked for
,r\ pt when Rgyption President Anwar Sadat visits
ntshington April 1-5 but no figure is shown in the proposed
higrams thus far. Support lor the Sinai project between
Lvptian and Israeli forces is listed at $12,200,000. A Middle
fist special fund, for use principally lor refugees, is earmarked
I$25 million.

Says Bravo
To Opinion
The American Jewish
Congress welcomes the decision
of the United States 5th Circuit
Court of Appeals on Mar. 11,
making it clear that the school
authorities of Orange County,
Fla.. must comply with the
constitutional guarantees of
freedom of religion and
separation of church and state,
Rabbi Ralph P. Kingsley.
president of the South Florida
Region of the American Jewish
Congress, announced.
The proceeding in which this
decision was issued, Meltzer v.
Board of Public Instruction of
Orange County, has been pen-
ding since 1970. During all that
time, the school authorities have
sponsored a number of practices
which were clearly un-
constitutional, as the Circuit
Court has now held.
THESE HAVE included use of
school personnel and facilities for
the distribution of secretarian
bibles, and the use of public
address systems in the schools
for recitation of prayers, readings
from the Bible and other religious
practices.
The basis for the Orange
County School Hoard's actions is
a little known Florida statute
231.09 (2) which reads in part:
that members of the instructional
staff should "embrace every
opportunity to inculcate by
precept and example, principles
of truth, honesty and patriotism
and the practice of every
Christian virtue."
THE COURT concluded that
the purpose of this provision in
the Florida statutes "is the
advancement of a particular
religion" and that a statute
having such a "particular
religious purpose" cannot be
reconciled with the commands of
the First Amendment of the U.S.
Constitution."
Abourezk Charges Double Allegiance
DENVER (JTA) -
en. James Abourezk (D.,
LD.) unleashed a vitriolic
[tack against the Israeli
Ibby and dual allegiance to
lie United States and
srael at a Democratic
urty Jefferson Jackson
lay dinner here Saturday
ight. His attack won him a
[anding ovation by the 700
ersons attending the fete.
Many prominent Demo-
its, labor leaders and
^wish officials had pro-
sted his appearance and
fused to attend the
iner.
[AS LATE as last Tuesday,
forts were made to find a sub-
rtute speaker or an additional
aker to counteract his well-
rown pro-Arab views. Abourezk
pponded by demanding to know
lether free speech was no
^ger possible on Colorado.
The Senator told the dinner
lience that he had not
bginally intended to deal with
fiddle East issues but that in
ew of the dispute he now felt
impelled to do so.
He furthermore claimed that
dispute surrounding his
^pearance was sparked because
i was not sufficiently pro-Israel.
"I GAVE an oath to support
lie United States, but I am not
Riling to swear allegiance to
rrael or any foreign govem-
pnt," he stated.
[ The senator charged that it is
ksier for Americans to c I icize
Israels because critics were
afraid of being tarred with the
brush of anti-Semitism.
"Just as we have seen U.S.
Presidents wrap themselves in
the American flag in efforts to
stifle criticism of their policies, so
do we see a foreign country
wrapping itself in its state
religion, so that criticism of the
state or its policies is perceived as
a form of racism." he said.
ABOUREZK said the "Israeli
lobby" wielded extraordinary
influence" in Washington.
The ability of this lobby "to
accomplish virtually any legis-
lative feat involving military or
economic assistance to Israel is
legend." he declared.

From Playing
Host To
Guest
At Last
THIS WEEK, I have the pleasant task of reviewing the book
of a gentleman whom I deeply admire the subject of which is
dear to my heart my alma mater. And the author has done a
superb job. A Host at Last (Little, Brown. 308p., $12.95), by Dr.
Abram Sachar, is both a fond reminiscence and a revelatory
reading. It is the story of Brandeis University.
Dr. Sachar, chancellor of Brandeis and author of the classic A
History of the Jews and The Course of Our Times, which has been
aired over television stations across the country, is one of the most
remarkable men in academia. With a small, but dedicated and
wealthy group of New England Jewry, he began the first Jewish
sponsored non-sectarian university in America.
SACHAR BEGINS the saga of the birth of Brandeis with an
important historical perspective on the American tradition of
privately sponsored colleges. From the 17th Century with the
founding of Harvard, higher education was considered the special
province and responsibility of the denominational groups.
Thus we read of Harvard and Yale's Congregationalist begin-
nings, the Episcopalian tradition of William and Mary and
DR. ACHAR: a most remarkable academic
Columbia University. Princeton's strong ties with the Presbyterian
ministry, and Brown's founding as a Baptist institution.
BY THE 18th and 19th centuries. Catholics had founded
Georgetown. St. Louis, Furdham. Boston College and others. The
Quakers had a special interest in the founding of their own colleges:
Haverford, Swarthmore. Bryn Mawrand others.
Sachar points out the astonishing fact that, until the 20th
Century, "only the Jews, whose sons and daughters sought oppor-
tunities in higher education in greater proportion than did any
other group, had never pioneered a college for which they were
responsible and where they could play host."
IT IS THE establishment and development of Brandeis which
primarily concerns Sachar. He chronicles the formulation of
academic- aims and the hiring of top caliber professors. He records
the tireless effort to build the sciences, humanities, social sciences,
creative arts and library departments which are the basis of a
liberal arts institution.
Brandeis has achieved numerous exceptional marks in its
short existence: after 12 years Brandeis was the youngest and
smallest university to receive a major Ford Foundation grant. Phi
Beta Kappa accreditation was conferred only 13 years after the uni-
versity's founding, Brandeis is the internationally-recognized
center for the study of violence, and the school was an innovator in
educational television programming.
THE NAMES of illustrious political and national figures who
participated in Brandeis' development in a meaningful way is
astounding: Eleanor Roosevelt. Leonard Bernstein, Albert Ein-
stein. Max I^erner. and Herbert Marcuse to name just a few.
Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the founding of the
university is that of fund-raising. The annual Palm Beach events,
the sensitive negotiations with this country's most philanthropic-
Jews this too is Sachar's field of expertise.
The contributions are phenomenal: from Leonard Wein's
indefatigable efforts on behalf of Brandeis from the school's in-
ception to date, to Lewis Rosenstiel's magnanimous contribution of
a S19-million scientific research center.
THROUGHOUT THE astonishing story of the birth and
growth of this young, internationally respected university, Dr.
Sachar is modest about his individual achievements.
Yet theexistence of Brandeis University is his achievement. It
is also our achievement. Brandeis made the American Jewish
community "a host at last."
Two Views of Gun ter Gaits
By HANS BERLACH
In The German Tribune
BERLIN Ostopolitik and
Deutschlandpolitik are so many-
faceted and controversial that
they give rise to constant
disputes not only between
Government and Opposition, but
also within the Coalition itself.
For the same reason these
topics also entail the danger that
the interests of the people
concerned are neglected or indeed
damaged in the course of the
political tug-of-war. Alas, this is
a fact of life we have to live with,
but we must nevertheless try to
restrict its negative effects as
much as possible.
RECENT BERLIN events -
ranging from the GDR's verbal
attack on Bonn's Mission in East
Berlin to the controversial
Spiegel (this country's leading
news magazine) interview with
Gunter Gaus, Bonn's pleni-
potentiary in East Berlin have
led to a situation in which the
implacable, the timid, the im-
patient and. last but not least,
the jurists who view politics from
a purely legal angle no longer see
the forest for the irksome trees.
The Paris daily Le Monde
defined that which might be
termed the forest in this context,
saying that until very recently we
spoke of the "Germans from the
two Germanies" but now we once
more have to speak of "The
Germany qf the Germans."
The reason given goes as
follows: Some ten million West
Germans traveled to the GDR in
1976. This is four times as many
as in 1971. In the same year.
1976. there were 16 million tele-
phone conversations between the
two Germanies, while in 1971
there were virtually none.
AT LEAST 1.4 million East
German pensioners visited the
Federal Republic legally in 1976
as opposed to 1().(X)0 in 1971. And
46.000 younger GDR inhabitants
were permitted to travel to the
Federal Republic for family
reasons in 1976. In 1971 this
figure- was zero. Moreover. 5.800
families were reunited in 1976
compared with 540 in 1971.
Must anyone even in the
Opposition be permitted to
jeopardize these results of patient
negotiations only in order to sub-
stantiate his contention that the
policy which brought about such
results has failed?
Even if this question is an-
swered in the negative, the ways
and means of securing these
results must remain open to
discussion.
BUT WHEN the Opposition
at lacks the Government, bom-
barding it with questions, it must
pay heed to a number of other
facts as well: The new American
Administration will pursue the
arms limitation issue and press
for a settlement in the course of
this year still.
It would like to get a second
Salt Agreement on the limitation
of strategic nuclear weapons
signed, sealed and delivered and
provide new impulses for the
Vienna MBFR talks on troop
reductions in Europe The
American hawks will Ik- unable to
change these facts, and the same
applies to their Ekn let counter-
part*
At the same time, Jimmy
Carter will try to get it across u,
the Soviets that the United
Males wants to see human rights
upheld in the East bloc as well.
Moreover. America's new
President will be much more
meticulous in assessing the
results of Helsinki at the
M
Gunter Gaus in front of Bonn's mission in East Berlin
INTRA-GERMAN AFFAIRS
than his predecessor whould have
been.
U.S. SECRETARY of State-
Cyrus Vance will air all these
Issues during his forthcoming
visit to Moscow.
In view of all this, it would be
very bad indeed if Leonid
Brezhnev were to cancel his en-
visaged visit to Bonn because he-
considers it pointless.
Considerations of this nature,
with Berlin in mind (which
remains a bone of contention in
East-West relations) might have
induced llerr Gaus to make his
controversial statement in the
Spiegel interview.
With the intimations made in
this interview Herr Gaus
probably wanted to induce the
(il)R to drop its reservations and
objections via-a-via Bonn's
present policy while at the same
time encouraging the Coalition to
continue on this path.
The Federal Government
should follow in his footsteps,
and it should do so cautiously,
but undaunted even by the
Opposition.

is clear that the "cocktail
lit," if indeed it is laughing
days, is laughing ner-
bly, since Carter is dead
>us about the moral leader-
he has engraved as a seal of
ersonal conviction upon his
lutive diplomacy. As prag-
tsts, they are more interested
factice than in principle.
DESPITE Stone's en-
liastic support of the
lident, the reports persist
there are strains developing
\e relationship between Stone
President Carter, as the
led hit list itself suggests
fact that no one is willing to
ft it exists, least of all that
'resident took it seriously.
Jys Stone: "I am guardedly
listic about Carter's under-
ling of Jews, Judaism,
lism. the State of Israel and
Middle East above and
Ind the pressures on him by
te Department career
^mats and Pentagon princes.
Ls I say," he emphasizes a
fid time, "having a pro-Arab
of view is no crime and can
|iost useful," adding that, "I
know if he (Carter) has a
balance in the information
being fed him, but he has been in
office so short a time. We must
give the President time to
achieve a balance of under-
standing and expertise."
PERSISTENTLY. I remind
him that there was a flap, and I
recall for him the interview he
gave to the Washington Post the
other week in which he was
sharply critical of the President
on the Middle East and in which
he didn't seem inclined to give
him the time then at all. Were the
names on the (alleged) hit list
winning out? Are they suddenly
being sidelined?
"The most important thing is
that the President has taken a
magnificent and stunning stand
on human rights," he replies.
"Human rights apply in the
Middle East as much as they do
in Africa or Cuba or elsewhere
in Latin America.
"As Jews, who are historic
victims of oppression, we can't
afford to see the rights of others,
Arabs or anybody else, violated."
AND THEN this shocker:
The White House wants flex-
ibility from the Arabs and Israel.
You know," he says, "the
question of human rights cuts
both ways," the implication
being that compared to some of
the moderate positions being
taken by Arab leaders these
days, Israel has a long way to go
to catch up."
As Jews, "we must want, we
must support decent homes,
decent lives, human dignity for
the Palestinians, too. If our
primary concern is the security
and survival of Israel, we won't
achieve this by failing to support
moves Arab or any other kind
toward moderation."
Isn't this even-handed ac-
ceptance of Arab moderation
characteristic of President Carter
and precisely what the Senator
criticized Carter for? Is the strain
between him and the President
just some nasty propaganda?
Which view is correct?
"THERE IS some strain, he
concedes finally. "But it's not a
difference of opinion over Arab
moderation. The issue between us
is that in the President's linkage
between human rights and our
friendships abroad his recent
statements on the Middle East
have not fostered moderation."
In fact, "they seemed to
reward intransigence and to
rebuke moderation.
Example: At the Cairo con-
ference, Sadat called for a
homeland for the Palestinians
within a Palestinian Jordanian
federation.
Carter remained silent.
THE CAIRO conference of
Arab leaders finally resolved,
under PLO pressure, to call for a
Palestinian homeland, obviously
carved out of Israel, at the same
time that the PLO repeated its
avowed determination to destroy
Israel.
The very next day at the
United Nations, President Carter
shook hands with the PLO repre-
sentative. The net effect was that
he snubbed Sadat's moderate
declaration but embraced the
extremism of the PLO.
Wasn't all that a nasty
mistake? I asked. Wasn't it just
more of those State Department
career diplomats again, some of
whom may have been on that
alleged hit list, who arranged for
the guest list and the reception
line?
"HOW MUCH better it would
have been," said Stone, "if the
invitations had been screened."
Or if Carter had voiced his
support of Sadat on the Pales-
tinians immediately not of the
statement after the PLO did its
dirty work in Cairo and not after
the handshake, both of which
now suggest that the President
supports a separate and inde-
pendent Palestinian homeland.
In the face of these presidential
gaffes, is Stone hopeful about
Carter on Israel?
"Not on Jerusalem," he
replies. "His rejection of the
1 Democratic Party plank on Jeru-
salem as the capital of Israel
worries me mightily. We must
not be complacent about this.
Jerusalem is by no means a
settled matter in Carter's mind.",
BUT OVERALLgSen. Stor
repeats that he is guardedly <
mistic and whips out a Xerox
copy of an Associated Press
report his aides picked up from
the Baltimore Sun on Mar. 22.
Says the report:
"WASHINGTON (AP) -
President Carter has concluded
;hat the 1967 borders in the
Middle East 'are dead' and that
Israel, for its security, may have
to retain considerable Arab
territory in a peace set-
tlement .
"The 'parameters' of th
administration's current thinking
include the President's view thai
a Palestinian homeland' woule;
be under Jordan's control.
"In a final state settlement
Mr. Carter is said to believt
Israel may have to extend it?
borders as much as 32 miles int<
the Sinai Desert and also keej
considerable territory on th<
West Bank of the the Jordar
River and on the Golan Heights.'
MYSELF, I have heard tha
song before. And other song:
sung by the President with soui
notes, as well. I'm no( really sun
what the report means. Carter b
just as likely to say something
entirely opposite tomorrow.

Ask &B6
By Abg halpepn
Question: What is the origin or significance of
the number three which seems to appear so often
in the Kabbalah, the Zohar and the Scriptures?
Leo Balkin
HUlcrest, Hollywood, Fla.
Answer: There are many references to the
number three in our Liturgy and Scriptures.
Following are just a few examples:
The Hebrew Bible consists of three divisions
known as Tanach. This word is an acronym of
three divisions known as Nun and Kaf. Each
letter represents a Hebrew word and stands for a
division of the Bible. 1) Torah the Law, the
Five Books of Moses. 2) Neviyim the
Prophets. 3) Ketuvim Hagiographa, which in
turn means Sacred Writings or Scriptures.
In the Kedusha, the Sanctification, part of
the Liturgy recited by the reader and the
congregation in Synagogues and Temples during
the repetition of the Eighteen Benedictions
during the Morning Services daily on the Sab-
baths and Festivals, there is the following sen-
tence: "Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh, Adonai Tzvaot
. Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts, the
whole earth is full of His glory." The Liturgy is
taken from the Prophetic Book of Isaiah, chapter
6, verse 3. The Soncino publication of the Book of
Isaiah has the following comment on this verse.
"Holy. The three-fold repetition indicates the
superlative degree of holiness. Holy in the highest
heaven, holy upon the earth, holy forever and
ever. ."(p.29).
One of the most stirring prayers of the High
Holy Days is known as the Unsaneh Tokef
Kedushat Hayom. "Let us affirm the majesty
and holiness of this day, for it is one of awe and
dread." This prayer relates in detail what may
happen in the year to come. Towards the end
there is the following sentence: "Utshuvah
Utfilah Utzdakeh Penitence, prayer and
charity avert the stern decree." In an old
traditional Hebrew Machzor (prayer book for the
High Holy Days) in my possession, each one of
the three Hebrew words has the following ad-
ditional explanation. Above the word Utshuvah,
repenteni't', there is the word Tzom meaning
Fast, above the word Tfilah there is the word Kol
meaning Voice, and above the word Tzdakah,
Charity, there is the word Mamon meaning
Money.
Traditionally there are three formal daily
prayer Services, either in the Synagogue or at
home. Shacharit the Morning Prayers, Mincha
the Afternoon Prayers and Maariv the
Evening Prayers.
There is a special prayer recited traditionally
at the end of a meal. This prayer is known as
Bentshen grace after meals. However when
three men eat together it is their duty to unite in
saying the grace after meals and there is an
additional special opening for the prayer. This
prayer after meals is known as Birchat Hamazon
grace after meals in the company of three or
more persons.
The Shma is the primal confession of faith in
the religion of the Jew. It is recited twice daily
during services at home or in the Synagogue,
before retiring for the night, in times of stress,
peril and other occasions. "Hear O Israel, the
Lord is our God, the Lord is One." The original
Hebrew consists of six words, twice three. "Shma
Yisrael Adonai Elohenu Adonai Echad." These
words enshrine Judaism's greatest contribution
to the religious thought of mankind. These words
declare that the Holy God worshipped and
proclaimed by Israel is One, and that He alone is
God, Who was, is, and ever will be. Liturgy is
taken from Deuteronomy, chapter 6, verses 4
through 9. Verse 5 reads as follows: "And you
shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart,
with all your soul, and with all your might."
In the first chapter of the Pirke Avot The
Ethics of the Fathers, Simon the Just said, "The
World rests upon three things: upon Torah, upon
Worship, and upon Acts of Loving Kindness." At
the conclusion of the same chapter. Rabbi Simeon
Ben Gamliel stated: "The word is founded upon
three things: upon Truth, Justice and Peace."
On the wall of the Memorial Hall of Temple
Beth El in Hollywood, there is a Bas Relief which
graphically depicts the significance and meaning
of these two ethical pronouncements. This Bas
Relief envisaged by Dr. Samuel Z. Jaffe, spiritual
leader of Temple Beth El was fashioned by the
sculptor, the late Mr. Soned. It was dedicated in
1961. In the next issue of the Jewish Floridian
this column will contain a picture of the Bas
Relief with symbols and an explanation by Dr.
Jaffe.
There are many more references to an idea
expressed either in three words or in three
phrases. While some of these references have
explanations of their own. I have not been able to
locate any reference giving the significance of the
number three in our Scriptures.
If any readers of this column have any ad-
ditional information or knowledge about the
significance of the number three, I will appreciate
hearing from you. I will share such additional
information in a future column. (To Be Continued)

by the now-ousted Indira Ghandi
government, but it added,
however, that a shift to a milder
attitude will be slow and
cautious.
The overturn in India's leader-

on domestic policies. Officially,
the Indian Embassy pointed out
it is premature to discuss the new

JDC Program in S. America
Small But Still Important
The Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, supported by the 1977
Combined Jewish Appeal-Israel
Emergency Fund campaign of
the Jewish Federation of South
Broward, conducts a relatively
small but important program in
South America. mainly in
Argentina. Chile and Uruguay,
Alfredo Berlfein. JDC represen-
tative for Latin America,
reported.
The JDC is subsidizing
the schools in all three countries
and is helping the yeshirot. It
provides for the training of rabbis
and supports an orphanage in
Chille. It also subsidizes various
training programs and
scholarships.
IN ARGENTINA, the largest
Jewish community in South
America, the Jewish population,
which had been estimated at
about 500,000, is considered at
the present time to be closer to
300,000, Berlfein noted. Jewish
emigration since the Jewish State
came into being in 1948 has
totalled only about 50,000 from
all of Latin America. Despite
this, he added, Israel has been a
tremendous unifying factor.
On the problem of Anti-
Semitism, Berlfein pointed out
that despite sudden and oc-
casional outbursts of anti-
Semitic manifestations and the
profusion of anti-Jewish
literature, in general anti-
Semitism is not a great problem
in Latin America.
Assimilation is a problem,
however. Nationalistic pressures,
especially in certain social
spheres, are causing some of the
Jews to move away from the
Jewish community.
THERE IS a serious lack of
Jewish professionals in Jewish
education and in Jewish com-
munity centers. As a result, the
centers have had to rely on people
from other fields and this has not
always proved advantageous.
To ease the shortage, the JDC
organized a center director's
program in Huenos Aires in-
volving Jewish psychologists,
physiologists and physical
education teachers. A numl>er of
them are completing a two-
month training program in
Israel.
The JDC role in Argentina,
Uruguay and Chile is still in a
developing stage. Berlfein said.
The main thing that could be said
of it is that it is necessary to
adjust to the needs of the com-
munity and not think merely of
providing financial aid.

LUXURIOUS LIFESTYLE:
The society pages of the
Washington newspapers are
often more revealing than the
front pages. In Washington's
political atmosphere, social
acceptance is as fragile as a
crystal champagne glass. The
names dropped at the posh
parties reflect the rise and fall of
the power seekers.'
Of course, the Democrats now
dominate the Washington social
whirl. President Carter's bright
young staff chief, Hamilton
Jordan, has replaced Henry
Kissinger as the toast of the
social set.
Some of the most ostentatious
parties are held in the ornate
rooms of the Capitol building.
Any senator or congressman can
reserve a room simply by writing
a letter to the Senate Rules Com-
mittee or the Speaker's office.
Then he can invite his friends
for a bash under the tinkling
culglass chandeliers. He can
borrow a do/en or two potted
palms from the National
Botanical Gardens to give the
room a romantic atmosphere.
All he has to pay for is the food
and drink. But the Senate and
House food services will cater his
party inexpensively. Everything
else the rooms, the palms, the
clean-up crews can be charged
to the taxpayers.
Even when the Senate is in
session, senators can duck into
one of the private Capitol rooms
for a drink. Here they can find
the stimulation that might be
lacking in a dull debate.
For years, the late Sen. Wayne
Morse led a lonely campaign
against these unlicensed bars.
The thought of inebriated
senators casting votes on vital
national issues upset him.
BUT COLLEAGUES looked '-
on Morse's opposition as a quaint
idiosyncracy. And the festivities
between roll calls went happily
on, unhindered by the Senate and
unreported by the press.
Other rooms are dedicated to
the further comfort and con-
venience of our legislators. There
are steam baths to help senators
recover from the rigors of law-
making. There are also two
swimming pools where they can
cavort in the nude to soothe tired
muscles. And on the House side,
congressmen enjoy similar
privileges in their own cloistered
surroundings.
Taken together, all this forms a
pattern of living that can be
likened to the excesses of the
Roman Empire, whose palaces
gave birth to the architectural
form on Capitol Hill.

[Guests are Not Infrequent at the Seder

fclriah is mysteRious passoveR Visitor
ByELIEZERRIMON
Guests are not infrequent at the Seder. All the
relatives are sure to come, unless they have their
own Seders and it was the custom for good Jews to
search out the lonely and the stranger to invite
them. "Let all who are hungry partake," the master
of the household recites, raising the unleavened
hread, signaling the beginning of the Seder.
But there is one rather mysterious visitor for
whom a special cup of wine is poured in advance at
every Seder. He doesn't usually appear at the begin-
ning. Maybe it's part of the stage scenery, so to
speak, for as I have said, he is a very mysterious
kind of being. But on the other hand, it may be
simply for a more practical reason.
Suppose on the same Seder night you had to be in
Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, in New York and Chicago
and Buenos Aires and Copenhagen, Denmark. The
chances are you would be a little late, too. The
wonder is that he does it at all, but he does have
extra swift means of transportation.
OF COURSE the one I refer to could be none other
than Eliyahu Ha-navi (Elijah, the Prophet).
It's not only on Seder night he is busy. The fact is,
he goes around all the other 360 days of the year
busy; for he employs himself in doing good and in
that business there is no slack season. The only
trouble with that business is that the hours of work

death Camp ChRistianity 6ie6 At Auschwitz
' /
By CLAIRE HUCHET BISHOP
IT HAS been said that "Christianity died at
Auschwitz." It did: the Christianity we have known,
Constantinian Christianity, seventeen hundred
years old, the Christianity allied to power, rendering
unto Caesar what is due to God, culminating in the
only instance in history of genocide carried out as a
concerted government policy, with the whole
machinery of the state mobilized for the purpose and
with the indifference of the institutional church to
the fate of the Jews making it possible an indif-
ference directly due to the traditional anti-Semitism
propagated for centuries.
This Christian teaching has permeated our
Western culture so thoroughly that even people
wholly detached from the church, including atheists,
are no longer unbiased in their reaction toward Jews,
though they may think they are.
IT IS true that the religious factor obtains less
and less in our hostility to Jews because we are
living in a desacralized society. This does not mean,
however, that the long-lasting, emotion-charged
indoctrination of anti-Semitism has ceased to affect
people who have severed all ties with the Christian
religion.
That they give other than religious reasons for
their hostility sometimes superficially com-
mendable ones, such as a humanitarian concern for
the Third World must not be allowed to obscure
the fact that in our Western culture the image of the
Jews has been created by the church. This
derogatory image thrived for nearly twenty cen-
turies; given the human psyche, it is not going to
vanish overnight, the belief of some that they an
free from prejudice notwithstanding.
SUCH A belief is a delusion because anti-
Semitism is protean; it never presents itself twice in
quite the same garb. The pogroms of 1881 in Russia
were triggered by an accusation against the Jews of
having engineered the assassination of Czar
Alexander II. In 1894, Capt. Dreyfus was accused of
treason in France. Hitler declared the Jews
responsible for the defeat of the Central Powers and
the downfall of Germany in World War I.
The Soviet Union finds it intolerable that some
Jews want to leave the "best country in the world."
Today, everywhere, liberals rightly concerned with
the plight of the Palestinians and the general misery
of the Third World, make the discovery anew that
the responsibility for all ills rests on the Jews call
them this time the State of Israel. The Jew is always
"that bald pate, that mangy creature who is the root
of all evil," like the poor donkey stigmatized by the
more powerful animals in La Fontaine's famous
fable, "The Animals Sick from the Plague." And
vwyone always protests, "I am not anti-Semitic,
bat. ." The Arabs also proclaim that they are anti-
Zionist and not anti-Semitic, that is, anti-Jewish,
but they flood Africa and South America with copies
of the spurious "Protocols of the Elders of Zion."
Given this perennial character of anti-Semitism, to
ignore the Holocaust is to invite its repetition under
another name, such as the liquidation of the State of
Israel.
WHILE ALL Jews today throughout the world
are deeply involved in the existence of the State of
Israel, their one hope after Auschwitz, the church
averts its eyes. No one expects it to approve every-
thing the State of Israel does, but why be silent
about its existence?
Because the church does not know what to do with
an event which contradicts traditional teaching.
Were not the Jews condemned to wander in exile on
account of the crucifixion until the end of time, when
they would recognize Jesus Christ?
This is a silence that follows with implacable logic
on its silence about Auschwitz. Auschwitz and the
State of Israel necessitate a new theology about
Jews, and the church does not yet have one,
although thirty years have passed since the events.
It retreats into what it claims to be Christian im-
partiality.
IN FACT, the church uses a double standard: it
takes great care not to offend the Arabs, but does
not appear to be sensitive to the Jewish plight. Its
so-called neutrality does not help those Arabs who
are willing to sit down with the Israelis; it favors
those who actually make use of its own deadly
liches in their propaganda the Jews are
nvaricious, ruthless, hypocritical, apostate.
The silence in religion textbooks regarding the
State of Israel widens the gap between the
hristians and Jews of today, a gap already made by
he fact that the texts follow the recurrent church
ractice of treating only pre-Jesus Judaism as
eritorious.
The traditional teaching is that Judaism ceased to
xist with the coming of Jesus. Thus it condemns us
i meeting an anachronistic people, a sure way not
relate to them. On the contrary, says the French
shops' Committee, "Christians, even if only for
emselves, ought to acquire a true and living
iowlede of Jewish traditions."
WHY? Because "the permanence of this people
rough the ages, its survival across civilizations, its
"scnce as a rigorous and exacting partner via-a-vis
Christianity are facts of the first importance which
we can treat neither with ignorance nor with con-
tempt." Courageously, the bishops affirm that "the
first covenant was not nullified by the new." They
speak of the "particular vocation of this people by
the Sanctification of the Name which makes the
life and prayer of the Jewish people a benediction for
all nations of the earth."
Indignant traditional theologians have reacted
violently, clamoring that the bishops' statement
"breaks with church tradition"; that "the Jewish
people was the chosen people for two thousand years
. but this election was temporary"; that it is
'' false to continue to speak today of a special election
of the Jewish people that it is equally wholly
mistaken to write that the 'first covenant was not
nullified by the new' "; that the French bishops'
position "is politically odious and theologically
destructive." Then comes the anguish-filled cry, "Is
faith in Christ no longer sufficient?" and the
defensive aggressive statement, "We have no right
to change the faith."
Thus, though the bishops state at the outset of the
document that the enduring, living presence of the
Jewish people constitutes "more and more for
Christians a given situation which may facilitate for
them a better comprehension of their own faith and
enlighten their life," yet a quasi-visceral fear blocks
the way for many to an authentic relationship with
our fellow Jews.
This fear is demonstrated in the "tightening up of
the basic explanations of the Gospel message," as
observed by John Pawlikowski (acting president of
the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago). It is, of
course, partly a backlash from Vatican II, and was
to be expected. But did we foresee that it would
become so powerful? Apparently we underestimated
the depth of the need for security in many
Christians. To them, faith is a safety valve, not a
challenge; it is static, not mobile. To them God is
not, as He is for Teilhard de Chardin, "the eternal
Discovery and the eternal Growth." To them, belief
means the assent of the mind to a dogmatic
proposition.
This has never been the meaning of the verb
lehamin in Hebrew, which, after all, was the
language of the first Christians. The word does not
denote an intellectual process; "to trust" renders the
original meaning more accurately. Trust is a living'
experience. It is not given once and for all but grows
with the person's own growth; its aspect changes
with the passing of time; its roots thrust deeper and
deeper through daily encounters, which are
welcomed as blessings by a resilient faith. Most
people, however, are used to and prefer a faith
hammered into their heads like a dead, rigid beam; it
frees them of any responsibility save that of holding
on to the beam. Therefore, anything which tends to
unsettle the beam is greatly feared. For this reason,
the French bishops' declaration has drawn a sharply
divided response: excoriation from those who
welcome the disturbing breath of the Spirit, those
who "believe," those who "trust." For the latter, the
document is a joy and a light to their own Christian
faith.
It is most important that Christians be reeducated
so that they can unmask and combat the disguised
anti-Semitism of today, which calls itself by such
names as anti-Zionism and anti-capitalism. In Com-
munist countries, the governments object to religion
but tolerate the church to a certain extent, whereas
the Jews are forbidden any kind of religious practice.
Do Christians in those countries, for example, offer
the use of churches to their Jewish brothers and
sisters? Do Christians make a point of learning
Hebrew? In short, are they conscious of their
solidarity with the persecuted Jews?
Anywhere in the world of our time the initiative to
further authentic relations with Jews will not come
from those in power; it must arise from the grass-
roots in each country, as it does in France and the
United States, where many religious and lay people
and a few priests have taken it upon themselves to
reeducate other Christians. Fierce opposition, born
of fear, already confronts us. We can expect more of
it; while remaining open to valid criticisms of our
specific actions, we must stand firm in our cause.
The multiheaded monster of anti-Semitism will leave
us no peace. Jules Isaac used to quip wryly, "It's not
easy to be a Jew." To a lesser extent, it's not easy to
be a friend of the Jews either, as some of us have
already realized.
And yet, here lies the decisive factor for the
direction the world will take. Not only did traditional
Christianity die at Auschwitz; Western civilization
died, too. Had the Christian church cried out forty
years ago, denouncing in no uncertain terms the
extermination of the Jews at Auschwitz and other
death factories, the world would not be what it is
today. Had the Christian church taken an
unequivocal stand against the Nazis, upholding the
moral and spiritual values Hitler flaunted, it might
have suffered severe persecution, but it would have
saved the respect due those values; and thus it
might have remained a beacon on earth, especially in
the West. In capitulating to unspeakable evil
through its indifference to the fate of the Jews, the
church as an institution not only signed its own
moral death warrant, but also unleashed in the world
unrestrained reliance upon violence as a solution for
all personal, interpersonal, national, and inter-

FOLLOWING are letters written by Soviet
Jewish Prisoner of Conscience Ilya Glezer to Fruma
Solomonovna Gurvich of Kibbutz Lokhamei
Hagetaot in Israel. Glezer was convicted of "dis-
seminating anti-Soviet propaganda" in 1972 and
sentenced to three years in a general regime prison
camp, followed by three years of exile in Siberia. He
is presently serving his term in exile.
Exactly one month after he and his mother ap-
plied for exit visas, Glezer was arrested and charged
with "anti-Soviet propaganda, slander and other
crimes." In particular, Glezer was jailed for having
written a letter to President Nikolai Podgorny sub-
stantiating the existence of anti-Semitism in the
Soviet Union.
HIS TWO-DAY trial was held behind closed doors
with his mother and relatives barred from the court-
room. Glezer was given a three-year sentence in a
general regime labor camp. The next day Pravda
reported in a front-page article that Glezer had con-
fessed his crimes of writing anonymous "dirty, anti-
Soviet letters," that he had been incited by hearing
"the lying transmissions of Kol Israel" and "became
infected with the poison of the most rabid and unre-
strained Zionism."
Throughout his ordeal, and even in appeals from
the labor camp, Glezer has stoutly maintained that
his only "crime" was his fervent desire to live in
Israel.

To tell the truth I admire and am astonished at
the greatness of heart of our people and of our
government. From my point of view our "cousins"
are nothing more than ancient colonizers of our
country. They had squeezed out of it its last juices
and had turned it into a desert by cutting down the
trees. In general, they behaved like all the colonial-
ists (like the English in India, or the French in
Algiers). But our democratic system permits them
to come out with statements.
If they don't like it in our country, nobody has
closed the borders for them and it seems that there is

no need ot an affidavit to emigrate? No? And all
around them are their brothers. What more do they
need? It is all this rotten liberalism. It wouldn't
harm them to get them here for a year or two. Maybe
they would then understand something. Alright, we
are peaceful people and apolitical. What does it
matter to us that the cat wants to gobble up a bird?
After all, we are not a bird. (This is not met, but
"Hamlet," paraphrased.)
HERE ALCOHOL flows in torrents and washes
both the body and the brain. This is a factor that is
also of great importance. Both men and women
drink. They drink until they lose control over then-
bladders and other negative matters. In this sense I
can be placed in a museum. Here they reason as
follows: If a person does not drink, this means that
he used to drink in such a way that he had had to
have treatment. No other versions are taken into
account. My "non-drinking" helps me a lot, because
it protects me from contacts. "What is there to talk
to him about if he does not drink?"
May 22.1976
The description of the day of the catastrophe and
heroism of the European Jewry has simply stunned
me. I have been sent from England the record:
David's Tower.
I CANNOT hear it without trembling, even
though it is in English. God, will I ever see all this in
reality?! I am still under the impression of the
refusal given to my daughter. It transpires that a
grandmother (my mother) and a granddaughter
this is not reunification of families!! What can one
call this except jeering. My daughter will apply
again in half a year. It seems that the aliya of my
family is being delayed. And how I would like my
daughter to start living in reality and nc. to
vegetate in the galuth.
For me life seems to have stopped since I have
realized where my true place is.
Here there are frequent reports about dis-
turbances in Judaea and Shomron and also in Jeru-
salem. A 8 for what concerns acts of terrorism, all
this is understandable, but here too effective
measures are necessary if we want to survive. As for
what concerns strikes on full stomachs, I am in full
agreement with you.
It would seem that under the conditions of
"neither war, nor peace," all this might have been
reduced. It has long been time to slap the hands of
those who are cutting down the branch on which we
are all sitting (including those who are in the
galuth). The whole matter is that we are a revo-
lutionary people. We like to make revolutions for
others, and in our own home we organize discussions
when the enemy is at the gates.

They went to the roads running out of town and

several of the inns, they were told that a man an-

I LOVE life very much, I love beautiful things,
comforts of life, flowers, music, but I shall give all
this away without hesitation (and I have already
done so) for the possibility of breathing the air of the
Eretz (without comforts). More than this, I don't
need life without the Eretz. Therefore I am enraged
when those who come there begin to write to me
complaints about the high coat of living, credits,
purchases of cars and so on. Oh, if you knew how all
this depresses all of us.
June 27,1976
Dear Fruma Solomonovna! Thank you very much
for the album of postcards devoted to your museum.
I look at these photographs again and again and I
think that the naivete of people is limitless: we think
that knowledge and reason always go hand in hand
with good. AD that has to be done is to educate and
to teach one to be literate and everything will be fine.
But it's just the opposite: the more refined the mind
is, the more knowledge one has, the more terrible
becomes this two-legged creature called man. Your
pictures are now very suitable to my mood.
July 6,1976
Of course, you understand that the entire past
week I lived under the effect of the hijacking and o
the ensuing events. Every day I. read the prayer fot
delivery and I believed that God would not permit
the criminals to triumph. Nevertheless I was
stunned by the brilliant actions of our fellows in
Entebbe. The only terrible thing is that four of our
fellows died. I can imagine the rejoicing in the Eretz.
I felt as if I were reprieved from a sentence of death.
I think that this is retribution of the same sort as for
Aman from the Meggiilah Esther. It is interesting
with what faces they will denounce the
"aggression"
July 25, 1976
I have received several letters from one Member of
Parliament of England (a Protestant Pastor). I am
astonished that some intelligent people do not lose
hope to teach a crocodile to feed on hay. But the
crocodile continues to gobble up human beings. The
Pastor is one of these admirers of taming. He thinks
that the clapping of hands during Swan Lake is
going to change the essence of beasts. And don't
forget, he has gone through the Second World War,
he has seen Auschwitz and all the rest of the
"beauties."
August 1,1976
I have read an article about myself and I have
even become proud. It is even embarrassing to be
praised too much. The journalists always either
praise too much or mix one with dirt.
Every people has its own road, we have our own,
and therefore all the shouting to the effect that we
should be "like everyone else," to get absorbed and
to fuse and so on, all this is unacceptable to me.
Naturally, we are part of the world civilization, but
we are a special part. Every time we try to be like
all, that is to assimilate and to become part of some
organism, a merciless reaction falls upon us.
August 3,1976
I have heard that on Saturday, Jury 3, people
danced in the streets. Really, our fate is astonishing.
The 20th Century has certainly been focused on our
fate. Without us there was no single event: either we
organized revolutions (for others), or we were an-
nihilated (and totally, at that). And here our little
plot of land is like a splinter in the eye of those who
cannot cultivate their own land. (Of course, I have in
mind neighbors, "cousins" and so on.) When one
listens to the radio it seems that the earth's axis
goes through our country. One can't help thinking of
the Torah "and people will come to you" (Psalms).
They say, and when will there finally be peace here
. and so on. And perhaps it is our fate to be
always that yeast that makes human conscience
rise? Alright, all this is philosophy in hot weather.
Here, in my exile, the heat is up to 40 degrees
(centigrade). There is nothing to breathe, because all
around the taiga is on fire. In the mornings the
smoke completely covers the sky and in the village
you can smell the smoke. This is why the vegetable
gardens are empty. The dust is disgusting.
THE ONLY salvation is the Angara. I take my
dog to the river and wallow in it together with him.
Getting letters from many countries, I now clearly
understand the entire spectrum of relations to our
case: from slight interest to complete indifference.
In addition, those who warmly sympathize can do
nothing, while those who can do something, think
mainly about themselves and about their own peace.
August 14,1976
Our letters go slowly like unfed nags. The heat
here has ended long ago, there is now dismal rain.
Everything has melted away and first and foremost
the clay soil. When I walk I drown in mud. My dog is
also wet and dirty. I have to clean and wash him,
otherwise it will be possible to plant a vegetable
garden in the room. In connection with the coming of
autumn I have heard a few times "Kol Israel." It is
surprising that all summer it had been impossible to
hear it. But now I am enjoying it (true, only in
Hebrew).
I have received a very nice letter from my future
dean and I am glad of the greetings. He insistently
recommends to me to study Ivrit, so that the
reading should begin as quickly as possible. {Note:
Glezer was appointed professor in exile of Ben
Gurion University in 1975.)
August 22, 1976
Yesterday I received a parcel from the Ain Tsuria
kibbutz. I had more vexation with it than joy.
Firstly, they confiscated the calendar for 1976-1977
and the chewing gum. And a severe "warning" has
been put into the parcel: this and this cannot be
sent. But a calendar! Why is it forbidden to count
time in accordance with our customs?
Sadat, Arafat and 60 Minutes
By MINDY KLEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
In an interview with Mike
Wallace on last Sunday's CBS-
TV edition of 60-Minutes, Yasir
Arafat and Egypt's President
Anwar Sadat, Arafat stated that
he considered the invitation of
the PLO to Carter's speech "an
important signal."
In recent weeks the Middle
East has stepped up its role as
the world's political hot potato. A
flurry of statements, retractions
and clarifications most of
them emanating from the White
House have raised tempers,
hopes and then, dashed a few.
Clearly the most common
response to all the confusion is
more confusion.
President Carter misuses the
implication laden term "defen-
sible borders" in talks with
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak
Rabin, and White House Press
Secretary Jody Powell jumps
into the spotlight to smooth out
the bumps.
A SEEMING about-face turns
"defensible borders" into Car-
ters Middle East policy of
returning Israel to 1967 borders
with "minor adjustments" and a
few other odds and ends thrown
into the brew.
Most recently, a PLO observer
delegation, invited by Secretary
General Kurt Waldheim, pops up
unbeknownst to Carter at
his UN address.
And, according to Powell, "no
political significance" is attached
to the PLO presence at the ad-
dress or the subsequent recep-
tion. Contrary to U.S. State
Department intentions, some did
receive a message from the in-
vitation. Most notably PLO
Chieftain Yassir Arafat.
Carter, it seems, isn't the only
one baffling heads of state with
lis empty word balloons.
President Sadat, in a separate 60
Minutes Wallace interview pre-
eding Arafat's on Sunday, along
.ith Arafat, had a little bit of
lometbing signifying nothing to
ay himself.
WHY, Wallace queries Arafat.
/on't you recognize th<
egitimacy of Israel?
Israelis would not recognize the
PLO, the Israelis would not
recognize the Palestinians, and
they will not deal for peace if the
PLO is present.
Of Sadat, Wallace asks: Con-
sidering your influence, why
can't you tell the Palestinians to
recognize Israel?
"HOW AM I going to ask the
Palestinians when nobody recog-
nizes them?" Sadat replies.
The Palestinians, Sadat
continues, have moderated their
views. "Before they wanted the
whole of Palestine." Now they
"will accept a Palestinian state
on any land liberated from oc-
cupation."
Back to Arafat, Wallace
inquires: Can you live in har-
mony adjacent to Israel?
ARAFAT WAVERS. "I want
guarantees," he says, adding
that he is fearful because Israel,
according to his sources, has
between five and seven nuclear
bombs.
Perhaps the most concrete
statement contained in the two
interviews came when Sadat told
Wallace that he plans to ask for
"lots" of F-5 fighters, anti-tank
missiles and some other elec-
tronic devices when he makes his
scheduled visit to Washington.
"I don't think anyone can
object because Israel has more
sophisticated arms," Sadat says,
adding that F-5 fighters are a
"tenth grade airplane."
DESPITE indications that all
involved outwardly agree on a
goal of peace it would seem that
one basic element lacking bet-
ween the parties in conflict is
some semblance of trust.
In earshot of all the noises
being made in the name of peace
in the Middle East, only one
thing is for certain: the stock-
piling of more, bigger, better
arms.

A Yank in Israel's Army
ByYEHUDIT HA-LEVI
He gets treated like a prince
when he comes home about once
every two weeks. That's pretty
often under the circumstances.
His name is Steven, he's my son
and he's in the Israeli army.
Right this moment he's in Tank
School learning how to operate
"-those enormous hunks of
machinery that are fearsome to
behold but, unfortunately, not
invincible.
He didn't have to go into the
army now but he found it im-
practical to wait. So he became
an immigrant at once, arranging
matters so that he would be
drafted immediately. If the price
of admission for the young men
who elect to live in Israel is to
serve in its army, he would pay
his admission price first and
finish college later.
NOR DID he have to go into
the Tank Corps and I suppose he
could have wiggled out of a
[ combat unit, if he so desired, but
i he was marvelously pleased when
he was found fit for combat.
[That means he's absolutely
[healthy enough, sane enough
land, he hopes, courageous
|enough.
(I'm not sure I agree with their
evaluation of his physical con-
iition. I'm his mother and I
(now how skinny he is. My
inception of combat soldiers is
that they should at least weigh
in- than a hundred-and-thirty-
two pounds.)
The rigors he withstood during
basic training are incredible.
Hard. Grueling. Punishing.
Toughening. Learning to throw a
grenade and wait to see where it
lands before hitting the dirt.
Learning to eat a meal in six
minutes. (Or did he say seven?)
Learning how to be a human
bridge over a barbed wire fence.
That can be accomplished suffer-
ing only minor scratches.
Learning how to run more than
twenty hours a day, sleep two or
three hours, and then get up for
more of the same.
AND WORST of all the
stretcher runs, those devilish
HIAS Will Aid
Emigres Who
Go Elsewhere
NEW YORK (JTA) Carl
Click, president of HIAS, issued
what he termed the "first official
and public statement" on the
issue of Soviet Jews who opt to
go to countries other than Israel
when they reach Vienna.
Addressing more than 1,000
guests at the 93rd annual
meeting of HI AS Sunday, he
said: "With the danger to Jews
in the USSR still great, HIAS
will help them to emigrate to
wherever it is they choose to go.
We will continue this policy until
such time when Jews the world
over are free to determine their
final destination."
DURING THE past year,
Glick said, "HIAS was im-
portuned by a small number of
persons to cease assistance to
Russian Jews in Vienna who left
the Soviet Union with Israeli
visas."
The HIAS board of directors
nd officers regarded any such
action "as detrimental to the
Interests of the Jewf. of the Soviet
TJnion, the diaspora generally
fnd Israel," he stated.
They recognized that anti-
Semitism remains rampant in the
viet Union. Current
pwspaper headlines which
port harassments and jailings
proof of the continuing
nger to the Jews of Russia. It
> been and remains the mission
HAS to assist Jews to move
countries where they are
wanted where they are in
tger as Jews to countries
>re they can be comfortable
| prosper as Jews."
[CCORDINGLY, Glick
linued, the HIAS board of
ptors has determined that
will assist all Jewish
es who need help
ever the condition and
circumstance of their temporary
travel documents."
In so doing, he said, "we
believe we are acting in ac-
cordance with the highest
precepts of the Jewish tradition.
We firmly believe we are fulfilling
the needs of the Soviet Jews and
the wishes of the American
Jewish communites."
The meeting was also marked
by a standing ovation given to
Elie Wiesel who was presented
with the HIAS 1977 Liberty
Award for his efforts on behalf of
world Jewry.
THE 1975 NOBEL Prize
nominee for literature called upon
President Carter to "take under
his wing all Soviet dissidents" as
he noted the "pre-pogrom at-
mosphere" in the Soviet Union
today and stressed the need for
renewed and revitalized Jewish
solidarity.
Wiesel declared that "the one
concept that prevails in Jewish
history" is that of solidarity. The
Jews' purpose is to bring all Jews
together, "whomever they are,
wherever they come from,
whatever language they speak.
Whomever wants to be helped
should be helped, no questions
asked," he said.
GAYNOR I. JACOBSON,
HIAS executive vice-president,
calling the work of the various
cooperating Jewish agencies "an
effective partnership in helping
Jews to gain the right of freedom
of choice," made special mention
of Attorney General Griffin Bell's
action of extending parole for
Soviet refugees in Italy, which
had the cooperation and support
of House and Senate committees
and the State Department.
exercises designed to prove to
young men that their endurance
is greater than they had ever
imagined. Do you know what a
stretcher run is? Four young
men must carry a fifth on a
stretcher, running all the way,
not running around the block,
mind you, but across miles and
miles of rough terrain and usually
at night.
(As I said, I'm his mother and
I still haven't figured out how he
could take it all with such good
nature and complain only that he
gets pretty tired, sometimes tired
enough to fall asleep on his feet.
I also can't figure out how it is
that he never looked better in his
life, never stronger or healthier.)
IF EVER I underestimated the
Israeli army, I changed my mind
one day, the day before Steven
was inducted. The Fourth of
July, 1976. Does the date ring a
bell other than the obvious one,
America's Bicentennial
celebration?
The week previous to that was
terrible. I had never known such
depression. One more time Jews
were separated and about to be
murdered and no one in the world
seemed to care. No one. When I
got up that morning I switched
on the radio indifferently. I didn't
really want to know what was
happening at Entebbe.
The deadline would arrive soon
enough. I wondered only how I
would get through that day and
the next. In six hours it would be
one o'clock at Entebbe and in
twenty-four hours Steven would
be in the army and who in the
world cares about Jews?
BUT THEN I heard the news
and I still do not believe how I
behaved. I jumped on the bed as
though it were a trampoline. I
don't think grandmothers are
supposed to behave like that but
I jumped until my knees gave out
from under me and my laughter
turned to tears of gratitude.
Somebody does care about Jews.
The Israeli army cares! What
was I worried about? Steven was
going into one of the fiercest,
most determined fighting units in
history.
Sometimes I still get
frightened and have those 'bad
nights' when I lie awake. The full
import hi(f.me. Steven is in the
army because he's in Israel and
he's in Israel because I'm in
Israel and I'm in Israel because I
chose to come to Israel. It
doesn't help to know that he was
legally and morally of age to
make his own decision on aliyah.
Were it not for me, he'd be quite
safe in some college in America,
his only danger being the
drinking bouts his con-
temporaries are indulging in
these davs.
Sometimes I 'm ashamed of my
fear. Am I different from other
Israeli mothers or am I only
newer at the game?
RECENTLY I read that there
are those who argue that the
effectiveness of tanks in modern
warfare has been greatly
diminished with the continued
development of antitank missiles.
The more sophisticated missiles
have close to 100 percent kill
probability. I loathe those
technical terms and try very hard
not to understand them, not
while my son is learning how to
be a member of a tank crew.
How do I really live with it?
Sometimes I trick myself into
believing there will be peace.
Sometimes I really do believe
there will be peace. However
ludicrous it may sound,
sometimes I think we'll fight for
that peace if we must. When all
else fails, I start to plan the next
Shabbat when Steven will be
home and once more I'll be able
to treat him like a prince.

Missionary Activities Failing
NEW YORK (JTA) A
two-month survey of the B'nai
IVrith's Anti Defamation League
of evangelical efforts and
religious cults seeking converts
among American Jewish youth
found that they have failed
"dismally" in their mission.
Nat Kameny, chairman of the
ADL's national program com-
mittee which is concerned with
religious and educational matters
in the U.S. and abroad, said the
findings show that "while
conversion attempts among
Jewish youth are obviously a
matter of considerable concern,
Christian evangelicals constitute
no real threat to Jewish sur-
vival."
THE FINDINGS were dis-
closed by Theodore H. Freedman,
director of the ADL's program
division at a program committee
meeting at which prominent
members of the Christian clergy
were present.
He said that "To assess the
pervasiveness and impact of the
evangelicals' the Program
Division undertook an ex-
ploratory survey to try to get an
understanding as to what in fact
was happening in comnfunities
across the country" and "de-
veloped a questionnaire, enlisted
the cooperation of our regional
office staff and directed our
inquiry to the professional
religious practitioner in the com-
munity, the rabbi."
Freedman said that the press
has blown up missionary efforts
among young Jews out of
proportion and cited a series of
headlines in newspapers in the
New York area and other cities.
He said that some of those
reports suggested a major prob-
lem facing the Jewish com-
munity.
BUT OTHERS "state that
evangelical efforts are annoying
at best but are not of any con-
sequence and do not represent a
threat to the Jewish com-
munity."
Freedman noted, "If in fact,
the reality is that evangelicals are
annoying, irritating, even offen-
sive, but not a clear and present
danger, then perhaps ADL's
responsibility is to place the
matter in perspective for the
Jewish community rather than to
he a party to increasing the
anxiety level of the Jewish
community."
He said that approximately
400 questionnaires were mailed
out in January to rabbis in
various communities and to date,
188 responses have been received.
The data received so far, he said,
showed that "the evangelicals
have failed."
FREEDMAN observed that
"Horror stories of kidnapings
into and away from the cults such
as the Children of God and the
Rev. Moon's Unification Church
make the headlines more
than they either inform young
people or their parents as to the
nature of these movements.
"Personal testimonies from
some few who have left Judaism
are perceived by some people to
be the harbinger of things to
come ... I have more confidence
in our institutions than that and
those who point to the 'evan-
gelicals and cults' as a Jewish
disaster are just plain wrong.
They do a disservice to the
Jewish community."
French Leader Agrees
Israel Ought to Exist
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) French
Foreign Minister Louis de
Guiringaud said here that
"Israel's right to existence is as
important to us as the Pales-
tinian right to a homeland."
The Foreign Minister, who is
due to pay a two-day visit to
Israel this week, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency in an ex-
clusive interview that in his view
"circumstances in 1977 are more
favorable to an Arab-Israeli
settlement than ever in the past."
DE GUIRINGAUD. who is
due to meet in Israel with Prime
Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Defense
Minister Shimon Peres and
Foreign Minister Yigal Allon,
also spelled out to the JTA the
international guarantee which
could be envisaged within a
settlement's framework.
He said "certain zones could be
demilitarized and United Nations
observers could be stationed
there as is done in the Sinai and
on the Golan. Special surveillance
electronic equipment could be
added as has been done in the
Sinai."
The Minister, who has often
called "for infernnHnnn!
guarantees" for Israel as part of a
global settlement, added that
these could also consist of "moral
and juridicial guarantees given
by certain powers as part of a
peace agreement."
"France," he added, "would
not refuse to take part in such a
project."
DE GUIRINGAUD intimated
that the Palestinians have
adopted a more moderate tone at
their recent National Council in
Cairo.
He said: "The Cairo congress
did not reiterate the text in its
1974 declaration and in its 1964
charter calling for the destruction
of Israel. I do not say that the
PLO charter has been modified
but that the Cairo communique
no longer repeats this position.
This shows that an evolution has
taken place since 1974."
The Minister, a former French
representative to the United
Nations, said he last visited
Israel 12 years ago "when I spent
time in the Negev, saw a number
of collective villages and the
Dead Sea works. I was and am
full of admiration for Israel's
