CRC Acts On Standard's
Letter To Stockholders
I. A. Durbin, chairman of the
Jewish Welfare Federation's Com-
munity Relations Committee, has
called upon constitutent organ-
izations of that committee to
register their protests with Sena-
tors Gurney and Chiles over
Standard Oil of California's ap-
parent attempt to lobby on behalf
of Middle Eastern Arab states.
Mr. Durbin was referring to
; the recent 2-page letter circulated
by Standard Oil to its stockhold-
ers calling for "understanding
on our part of the aspirations of
the Arab people, and more posi-
tive support of their efforts to-
ward peace in the Middle East."
He urged member organizations
to communicate their displeasure,
stating that "it is obvious that
the alliance between the oil com-
panies and the Arab dictatorships
have now surfaced."
Mr. Durbin accused the oil com-
panies of having "launched a
campaign to establish a detente
between the United States and
the Arab states. We strongly be-
lieve that the issue of the oil
companies and the oil-rich Arab
states must remain separate from
the issue of the security of Israel
and the present stability in the
Middle East, much of it from
that the United States imports
only 7 percent of its oil from the
Middle East, much of its from
non-Arab and friendly Iran.
"Standard Oil of California
draws more than half of its out-
put from Saudi Arabia alone,"
Mr. Durbin said. "It is therefore
obvious that Standard Oil is put-
ting its own corporate interests
ahead of United States' interests
by urging a change in Middle
East policy. The company's use of
stockholders and employees for
political lobbying is an offensive
misuse of its functions."
New Year's G
Soviet Jews
The South Florida Conference
on Soviet Jewry requests that
area residents send Rosh Hasha-
nah cards to Russian captives who
have applied for exit visas to
Israel, indicating their support
and sympathy.
Mail should be sent registered
airmail with return receipt re-
quested and with insurance of up
to $13, which is free.
State that there is something
of value (as in artwork) in the
envelope. If the card is returned,
it should be sent to the Confer-
ence, P. O. Box 1056, North Mi-
ami, Fla. 33161, for vital docu-
.. mentation.
If neither the receipt nor the
letter is returned after one
month, a "tracer" should be filed
at the post office. If nothing hap-
pens within another month, a
reetings For
Requested
claim for the insurance money
should be filed. The money,
which may be used for more com-
munications, should be received
within several months.
Messages can be strong, ac-
cording to the Conference, so long
as they are not anti-Soviet. If a
scientist's specialty is mentioned,
it would be helpful to try to get
someone in that field to write.
Envelopes should be addressed
as follows:
USSR
Republic (as Latvian SSR),
City (as Riga)
Street address and apartment

JERUSALEM (JTA The
Supreme Court Aug. 15 turned
down the appeal of 28 black He-
brews from Dimona who wish to
remain in Israel as immigrants.
They had asked the court to or-
der the Interior Minister to
grant them immigrant status,
saying they arrived in Israel be-
fore the Law of Return was
amended at the beginning of
1970.
The original law stated that
anyone who sincerely held him-
self to being a Jew and professed
no other religion, was a Jew,
and hence, was entitled to enter
Israel as an immigrant. The black
Hebrews said in their appeal that
they adhere to the law of Moses
and Israel and considered them-
selves to be of Jewish origin.
IN TURNING down their ap-
peal the courts said they had
only applied for immigrant sta-
tus in 1972 and were therefore
subject to the amended Law of
Return. It did, however, issue an
interim injunction forbidding
their expulsion for one month
while their application for perma-
nent residence, as opposed to im
migrant status, is being consid-
ered.
A deportation order was issued
last week by the Interior Minis-
try against 17 of the black He-
brews, among them leaders of the
Dimona community. The group
was held by police until the court
decision was made. The Ministry's
order was made on the ground*
that all members of the group
are staying in Israel illegally.
Some 230 black Hebrews ar-
rived in Israel two years ago,
most of them with tourist visas.
Some of these visas expired and
were not renewed. The group
was asked by the government to
lea vs.
SOME MEMBERS left; others
rejected the government appeals.
During the last year 20 left the
country either on their own or
followins Government orders.
At present there are still some
200 black Hebrews in Dimona.
Some of them have acquired tem-
porary citizen status, which has
to be reapproved after three
years in Israel.

united Nations World Youth As-
sembly. By the end of the As-
sembly bis statements and
activities had been reported
throughout the world. The New
York Times described his leader
ship of a Western walkout, the
newspaper of El Fatah vilified
him; Radio Free Europe broad-
cast his speeches, and the official
UN. report of B'nai B'lith sum

Prager was the star of the West"
and "the only man to embarrass
the Russians."
la the past three years he has |
made hundreds of appearances on
college campuses, in synagogues
and community centers, and on
radio and television in more than
25 states thioughout America.
The ability to speak authorita-
tively on a large number of sub-
jects of Jewish interest is due in
great measure to Mr. Prager's
uniquely varied background in
travel and education, according
to Mrs. Herbert Katz. chairman
Of the Committee on Jewish Life.
"He has traveled extensively
through 35 countries in Europe,
Asia, the Middle East and North
Africa, including three trips be-
hind the Iron Curtain, visiting
Jewish communities wherever
they exist. He studied for one
year- on a full scholarship in
England, and has a knowledge of
French. German, Russian, He-
brew and Arabic." she said.
.Mr. Prager has served as a
member of the faculties of Brook-
lyn College, Touro College and
the Heizl Institute of the Jewish
Agency, and plans to devote
1973-74 solely to lecturing and
writing. He has been published
in the National Review and the
New Leader and writes a column
for the new monthly Times of
Israel.
Mr. Prager is now concluding
the writing of his book entitled
"Being and Jewishness" in which
he sets forth his hypothesis that
"Judaism is the best system for
creating moral man." It is from
this book that his topic for the
first lecture. "Why I Am a Jew,"
is taken.
Members of the sub-committee
that planned the series include
Mrs. Norman Atkin. Mrs. Fred
Ehrenstein, Dr. Victor Glazer.
Marvin Lee. Dr. Meion Levitats.
Rabbi Morton Malavsky and Mrs.

Sisco Says
Oil Makes
Difference
JERUSALEM (WNS) U.S.
j Under Secretary of State Joseph
' J. Sise* told Israeli television
viewers that the United States need
for Arab oil sources is a factor in
Washington's policy in the Middle
East and it would be "foolhardy''
for anyone to deny this.
He emphasized that while Amei-
ican and Israeli interests are paral-
lel they are by no means identical
He said that the United Slates has
important economic, political and
strategic interests in the Middle
Bast, the Persian Gulf and the
Arabian Peninsula.
THERE IS "increasing concern
in our country over the eitvfgy
question.'' Sisco noted. However.
Foreign Minister Abba Eban told
reporters in Tel Aviv that Amer
ican foreign policy is not influ-
enced by oil interests.
He cited as proof the U.S. veto
in the Security Council of the anti
Israeli draft resolution. The veto
has been widely viewed by Arabs
as an abandonment by the U.S. of
all neutrality in the Mideast.

Golda Rejects Parallel Seen
f^ Between Israel, Palestinians
JERUSALEM (JT A (Premier Golda Meir rejected recent
comparisons between the situation of the Jewish people and those of
the Palestinian Arabs. Addressing the Knesset on its last day before
adjourning for the summer recess and the October election. Mrs. Meir
said such a comparison was a "complete distortion." _______^_
While Jews around the world
p
I
lived outside their homeland, the
Palestinian Arabs can express their
nationality in Jordan, she said.
"Israel is the only country in the
world where the people of Israel
can live in Jewish independence,"
Mxs. Meir said.
SHE REITERATED that between
the Mediterranean and the eastern
desert there was room for only
two countries, a Jewish state and
an Arab state, Israel and Jordan.
She said "we oppose the creation
of an additional Arab state."
While the Palestinian refugee
problem was caused because the
An states prevented any solution
In the Middle Bast, Mrs. Meir said.
I I had started after the Six-
Day War to rehabilitate Arab refu-
gees under its control. "We did
and we shall do our utmost, and
we shall try to obtain resources
from international sources to
achieve this goal." she Mid.
' Meir rejected the possibil-
ity of Israel negotiating with the
Ara') terrorist organizations, say-
ing 'it is not acceptable that we
shall negotiate with murderous or-
ganisations which aspire to destroy
Israel and create in its place a
Palestinian state." She expressed
surprise at repeated mention in the
United Nations and other places
of the "legitimate interests" of the
Palestinian people.
"These statements do not con-
tribute to the advancement of
peace," she said. "They only en-
courage the terror organization
ideologically and cause false
hopes," she added.
The temple will offer a creative
educational program for kinder-
garten through confirmation, in-
cluding choir, dramatics, arts and
crafts. The 7th and 8th grades will
meet Saturday mornings, kinder-
garten through 6th grades, Sundays
from 9 to 11:30 a.m.; and the con-
firmation department, (9th and
10th grades) Mondays from 7 to 9
p.m.
The religious school is accredited

tion. The musical program is under
the direction of Mrs. Irwin Fried-
man. Mrs. Louis Lister is its prin-
cipal; youth directors are Mr. and

Moredecai Neeman is the prin-
cipal teacher in the Hebrew De-
partment. The midweek Hebrew

ance with the chronological age of

struction has been scheduled so

ly prepared for this important
milestone in Jewish life.

On 'Even-Handed' Terrorism
We have already observed that Israel will have a
difficult time supporting her interception of a Middle East
Airlines plane over the skies of Lebanon and forcing it to
land at Lod.
But we agree with Rep. Ogden Reid (Dem.-N.Y.), who
observed this week that the ease with which the world
condemned Israel's move does not square with the world's
reluctance to condemn Arab provocation.
As Rep. Reid pointed out, part of the frustration that
drove Israel to her daring and now troublesome move
can be traced to the way in which the nations and their
air fleets evade support for international conventions to
deal sternly with terror.
One example of Reid's argument is the one sided way
in which the U.S. Air Line Pilots Association is petitioning
Secretary of State William P. Rogers to suspend Israeli
commercial air service to and from the U.S.
Another is Italy's shocking release on bail last week
of four Arab terrorists caught armed near Israeli installa-
tions at DaVir.ci Airport in Rome. The four were ordered
to remain in Italy for trial, but odds are they won't be
around to meet their day in court.
So long as provocation is at best regretted and Israeli
retaliation is predictably condemned, air paracy will con-
tinue to be with us.
Racial Discrimination in Israel
The Supreme Court decision in Jerusalem the other
day to turn down an appeal by 28 Black Hebrews living in
Dimona to be permitted to remain as Israeli immigrants is
a shocker.
We keep talking about the Law of Return the right
of any self-professed Jew to live in Israel. But the fact is
that things have changed since the emergency days fol-
lowing the establishment of the State, and part of the
change includes an amendment to the law back in 1970.
Obviously, the amendment is designed to make the
Law of Return far more selective, and the selectivity is in
this case be:ng directed against the Blacks.
We note no such legalisms operating in the mass
campaign to bring Soviet Jews to Israel
Oriental Jews. Black Hebrews and other such groups
that have for years been complaining about social politi-
cal, economic and even racial discrimination in Israel
?eem to be on s!rong giound judging by this latest Supreme
Court eoict.
Detaching the Pound and Dollar
A link between us and the Israelis has been our fall-
ing dollar and the inflationary spiral of the Pound
^SHHilSt d!lar S6emS l be lengthening
significantly abroad, the Pound is inevitably declining
Israeli economists are now contemplating the ultimate
possibility detaching the Pound from the dollar in favor
anmU mie s,able currency like the German Mark
That would spell more than a further devaluation of
the Pound, which is bad enough. It would spell the end of
a symbolic tie between the two countries with greater
man just economic ramifications.
Assimilation and Drug Addiction
Ben Gallob's Jewish Telegraphic Agency report about
using form** addicts as counselors to Jewish teen-age mem-
bers of a New Jersey Community Center may have posi-
tive therapeutic ramifications.
But there is also something sad about the report.
We need no reminder that American Jews are becom-
ing more "assimilated" every day not specifically in a re-
ligious but in a sociological way.
Time was when Jewish youngsters were famed for
their achievement in academics, art and the sciences.
While that day is not necessarily gone, another sun seems
to be rising over it.
Use of drugs among Jewish teen-agers is nothinq to be
happy about.
ItlEBB are some compelling
parall ill between the George
Habash incident and the furoi
the laraetM raiaeshwhen tiny kid-
napped Adolf Eiehmann and
brought him from Buenos Aires
to Jerusalem for trial
In each ease, there was an en-
emy of what the Israelis regard
as "the Jewish people."
In each, the enemy continued
his existence if not his opera)
In cause th i rest of the world felt
no particular compulsion either
to unmask or to stop him.
In the wake of each, intcrna-
tional opinion remains on the
side and order."' which
means thai it is the victim who
has liven condemned because of
his retaliation, not the criminal
because ol his provocation.
EVEN THE differences are not
sharp enough to disturb the simi-
larities.
In kidnapping Eiehmann, the
Israelis were punishing a man
ex-post facto for the crimes he
committed against Jews in a for-
eign country there was no
Israel and therefore no Israeli
law operating during Eichmann's
orgy under Hitler's command.
If the Israelis got away with
violating German sovereignty,
they had the Germans to thank
for it. who acknowledged their
prior claim to the prosecution
of Eiehmann. but seemed anxious
to relinquish the claim and over-
look the violation.
For entirely different reasons,
the same was true of the Argen-
tinians, whose laws and sov-
ereignty the Israelis also vio-
lated.
e e e
IN THE George Habash case,
ex-post facto is not an issue, but
Israeli law is as irrelevant to the
pursuit and punishment of the
Arab Habash as it was to the
pursuit and punishment of the
German Eiehmann.
And just as neither the Ger-
mans nor the Argentinians made
Mindlin
was no overt benefit that could
accrue !r> Germans in a head-on
collision between such interna-
tional laws as guaranteed (heir
sovereignty and the public rela-
tions image of Eiehmann as a
Hitlerian butcher.

any meaningful legal claim on
Eiehmann. i th Arabs are mak-
i. no li i I claim on Habash
But did this Lave the Israelis
wiih the relativi Ij "safe" option
to make their kidnap attempt on
Habash as they did on Eichrru
I think not For one thing, the
Arab "repudiation" of Habash is
tactical, not moral; while from
the start of the Eiehmann case
it was obvious thai Bonn had no
interest in pursuing its legal
riehts in behalf of a bankrupt
Third Reich.
At least, the German disclaimer
recognized the tragedy of Jewish
history at the hand of Nazism
and was embarrassed by the trag-
edy, as well as by the defeat of
Germany. The disclaimer was
Bonn's way of telling the world
that the letter of the law is not
always the law al its most just.
BY CONTRAST. Habash rep-
resents the newly-fired "mani-
fest destiny" of a generalized
Arab nationalism on the rise.
To emphasize this nationalism,
the Arabs deny that Habash is
their appointed agent, or that he
is of a particular Arab nati
origin. Habash is therefore sub
ject to no Arab law and to no
Arab boundary lines, In practical
terms, he stands above all Arab
law and all Arab boundary lines.
Reckoned in these terms, the
Arab disclaimer i> different from
the German disclaimer.
In the Eiehmann case, there
IN THE Habash case, the Arab;
are arguing that Habash is a des-
ert Robin Hood over whom ttu-v
have no control and who is really
not their responsibility tsince ha
is all Arab-, in general and no
Arab in particular).
And SO, in the Haba-h case, the
Arab motivation is precisel] the
opposite of 'he German motiva-
tion in the Eiehmann case.
In relinquishing their claim n
Habash, they are net removing
themselves from involvement. Oi
the contrary, they are strengthen-
ing their involvement.
With Habash expendable, the
Arabs are free to focus rot on
Habash and his terrorism, but on
"Israeli piracy."
This leaves the \rab in the
seemingly impregnable position
that the Israeli kidnap attempt
was a greater threat to Interna-
tional "law and i tl in Ha-
bash's terrorism wai at its worst

UNITED NATION'S EMISSARY IS WORRIED THESE DAYS
Is Dr. Waldheim Another Jarring?
By RICHARD YAFFE
Jewish Chronicle Feature Syndicate
Kurt Waldheim is a worried man
and his domain is a troubled one
It is slowly and inexorably being
ground down by a conflict which
baffled his three predecessors as
UN Secretary-General and now
dominates and poisons practically
the whole of its work, including
that of its specialized agencies.
It is of course, the 25 year-old
Israel-Arab war, hot and cold,
which obsesses the man and is
sending him on his way to the Mid-
dle East to see if he can do what
other men and nations have been
been unable to achieve set the
region on the rails towards peace.
The conflict dominates both the
General Assembly and the Security
Council and. because it has defied
solution, it tars the whole organi-
zation with its failure.
SCARCELY A day seems to pass
in the assembly and its seven com
mittces without some angry word
on the .Middle East question. The
Security Council has been "seized"
of the matter since Israel was pro-
claimed, and before, and is at pres-
ent engaged in another futile, bit-
ter and inconclusive round.
The work of the Human Rights
Commission has ground almost to
a halt due to Arab insistence on
discussing and condemning Israel's
occupation of territory captured in
the 1967 Six-Day War. The spe-
cialized agencies. particularly
UNESCO, find themselves fre-
quently debating anti-Israeli items
tabled by the Arabs.
All these, the energetic Dr. Wald-
heim inherited when he took on
U Thant's office. He also inherited
Gunnar Jarring. The Jarring mis-
sion, if not dead, is giving a good
imitation. This is not entirely Jar-

ISRAEL SAID "No" ami with-
drew her cooperation from Jarring.
That was in February, 1971. The
U.S. then put the Rogers proposals
on ice. leaving Jarring holding an
empty bag.
The paragraph of the Brezhnev-
Nixon communique dealing with
the Middle East, following their
recent summit in th f.S. was sad
reading for Waldheim.
It completely ignored bath the
Jarring mission and Resolution 242
of the Security Council which
brought it into being This is a
precious, if not sacred, document
since it is Ihe only international
instrument which provides the
basis for an Israel-Arab agreement

THE HALPERN JOURNEY
Israel-----1973: 25th Anniversary
By BLANCHE & ABE HALPERN
The Russian Aliyah
We encountered ihe presence of
Ihe "Olim Hadashim." the new
Russian immigrants in Israel, from
the very Oral day of our arrival.
We met three young men at the
Western Wall. When Abe heard
them speaking Russian he im-
mediately started talking to them.
Abe speaks Russian fluently. From
then on, almost daily, we met and
interviewed new Russian immi-
grants using our tape recorder.
The Russian aliyah is noticeable
in Israel society in many other
ways. You can see books in Rus-
sian displayed in many book stores.
A concert at the Jerusalem theatre
featured a new arrival, a well-
known vocalist who sang in Rus-
sian.
The Israel Defense Forces in
commemoration of Yom Hazikoron,
The Day of Remembrance, pub-
lished a pamphlet in three lan-
guages (Hebrew, English and Rus-
sian) about the Israelis who gave
their lives in defense of the state.
We have about 20 hours of inter-
views with new immigrants. We
also interviewed a high official of
the Sochnut, the Jewish Agency.
Almost daily we recorded our ob-
servations and impressions.
It is impossbile to present a
complete verbatim report of all
our interviews. We will therefore
report only this one case history
in great detail.
All the new arrivals who an-
swered our questions asked us not
to divulge their names or indicate
from where they came. They all
have close relatives still living in
the Soviet Union. We promised to
respect their wishes.
Many of them in reply to a ques-
tion requested that we stop the
tape recorder. They would answer
our question only if we would not
lecord it. Later in the day we
made notes of their replies. We
will not give you their answers
but we take them into considera-
tion in forming our opinions and
conclusions.
Primarily we asked similar ques-
tions in all our interviews, al-
though not in all cases were all
the questions asked and not al-
ways in the same order.
From these interviews, observa-
tions and impressions, as well as
from discussions with many Is-
raelis about the Russian aliyah, we
have a new horizon of understand-
ing of the facts. Our opinions and
conclusions are based on these and
many other factors.
OKJHOPCDIC SPECIALIST
Dr. A is 35 years old. He was
born in a small town in Lithuania
and lived a good part of his life
in one of the largest cities of that
country- He received his medical
training and practiced medicine in
the Soviet Union. In April of 1971
he arrived in Israel with his wife
and father. His mother is dead.
They joined his mother-in-law
who has been living in Israel for
the past eight years. She supplied
Ihem with the necessary docu-
ments requesting the reunification
i of the family. These arc docu-
l menu the Soviet Union requires
. from ail those who desire to
emigrate fiom the Soviet Union to
[ Israel.
A brother and his family arrived
I a year later in 1972. following the
receipt of documents from the doc-
I .or. Dr. A, an orthopedic special-
I ist, is now connected with a large
hospital. The interview took place
in the hospital. Following is a
varbatim translation from the Rus-
i sian of a portion of our conversa-
tion.
DIFFICULT TO EMIGRATE
Q. "Was it difficult or easy for
you to receive permission to emi-
grate to Israel?"
A. "For us to emigrate from
the Soviet Union was considerably
difficult. We submitted our ap-
plication and the necessary docu-
ments the first time long before
the Six-Day War. We renewed our
request five or six times. We were
always denied permission....
"Only on one occasion did the
refusal carry a reason. Both of us,
they said, have higher education
and both are economically secure.
We are a complete family unit in
good economic circumstances and
there is no reason for us to move
to Israel. This, in spite of the fact
that my mother-in-law lives in Is-
rael. We always presented my
mother-in-law's documents."
Q. "Why did you want to leave
the Soviet Union for Israel?"
A. "This is a very difficult
question to answer The main
reason was simply a family mat-
ter. My wife wanted to join her
mother ... I can't say that I was
t great revolutionary ..."
Q. "How was the spiritual, re-
ligious and cultural life of the
Jewish people? Were there syna-
gogues, Jewish schools? Were
there Jewish concerts plays etc.?"
A. "In our city there is one
synagogue where Jews gather to
pray, mostly older people. The
youth hardly ever attend. A pri-
mary Jewish school existed before
1949, but in 1949 it was closed.
There was no possibility of obtain-
ing any kind of Jewish education,
not even of a minimal nature. It
was simply impossible."
Q. "Was it possible to get Jew-
ish education privately?"
A. "Occasionally. Personally I
never received Jewish education in
any form or manner."
Q. "During the years before
you received your passport and
permission to leave, the officials
knew that you wanted to go to
IsraeL Did you have any diffi-
culties?"
A. "I did not lose my position
and my relationship with all those
with whom I worked remained the
same..."
Q. "Did you have to pay the
ransom?"
A. "No, we did not have to pay
the higher education tax. The fact
is that we were among the very
first to receive permission to
emigrate when this latest Aliyah
began. It was before the ransom
payments were instituted. Because |
we renewed our request every year i
for many years, we were among |
(he first to receive the exit permit. !
This was before the difficult prob- I
lems occurred."
Q. "How do you like life here
in Israel? Did you adjust to con-
ditions here?"
THIS IS MY LAND
A. "I don't particularly like
that question from correspondents,
'how do I like it here.' This is my
land. If there are tsores they are
my tsores." (note: he used the He-
brew word "tsores) "I'm not in a
strange land. Everything here, the
good and the bad, is in my land.
It is not a question of whether I
like it or I don't like it."
Q. "How did you establish your-
self, adjust to life here?"
A. "I am already well estab-
lished, not bad at all. As a matter
of fact, rather good. I am rather
pleased and satisfied."
Q. 'When you arrived did you
get any help from the Sochnut?"
(Sochnut is the Hebrew name for
the Jewish Agency in Israel which
gets a major portion of its budget
for the absorption of immigrants
from the United Jewish Appeal.
A. "Exactly the same as all
olim are helped in the absorption
process. I was in an Ulpan .the
help the Sochnut gives to a new-
comer in Israel who changes not
only his physical environment but
also his entire mode of life, etc.,
the help of the Sochnut in such a
case is very good."
Q. "You were born in the So-
viet Union, came here two years
ago as an adult, and yet you said,
'this is my land,' and it seemed
to me that you considered your-
self an Israeli from the very first
day you arrived here?"
A. "This is due to the fact that
all my life I considered the So-
viet Union as a strange land, not
my land."
Q. "Why?"
A. 'Well, not exactly all my
life. It started from the time
when I was about 14 years old. At
that time I received a psychic
shock when Beria was executed."
(Lavrenti Beria was head of the
secret police during Stalin's re-
gime and after Stalin's death was
arrested as an enemy of the peo-
ple and executed). "I realized at
that time that all people were
subservient.
"I was in a pioneer camp. At
the entrance gate there was an
arch. Displayed from the top of
the arch were large portraits of
all the members of the Politburo,
among them Beria. Early one
morning the older children awoke
I '
and before the start of the activi-1
ties of the day, we listened to the
radio and heard that Beria was j
discovered to be an enemy of the
people and was shot to death. All
of us. the older pioneers, pulled |
down the large Beria portrait, tore
it up and set fire to it."
PSYCHIC SHOCK
"At that time the director of
Um camp who was at a meeting
and had not heard the news ran J
out and began to yell at us. 'Idiots,
scoundrels, what are you doing?" ;
Because of you I will be shot.' At
the same moment it was announc-
ed that an important message
would be given over the USSR
radio. When the director heard
the announcement that Beria was I
an enemy of the people he em-
braced us and said. 'Children, J
you're wonderful. You performed ]
such an excellent deed.' I felt that
if an adult, the director of the
camp, doesn't understand any-
thing and has no independent opin-
ion of his own, but is only wor-
ried about his own skin, it was
obvious that something was wrong j
in the land. That's when I receiv- j
ed the psychic shock.
"Later on, when I began to study
and to work and began to under-
stand more and think about this, I
experienced many signs of anti-
Semitism and I had many difficul-
ties because I was a Jew ."
Q. 'After the Six-Day War did
the youth in your city begin dem-
onstrations, go to the synagogue
on Simchat Torah, sing and dance
as they are doing in Moscow, and
declare themselves to be Jews?"
A. "Our Jewish youth partici-
pated in such activities even be-
fore the Six-Day War ... it con-
tinued after the Six-Day War. With
reference to religious activities,
the youth began attending the syn-
agogue, not because of religious
principles but as a sort of official
protest against the government.
The Communist government is in
general anti-religious. I feel that
this was and is a protest of the
Jewish youth as Jews against the
government."
Q. 'When and how did they
get the courage to engage in this
type of activity? It was, I think,
impossible during Stalin's regime."
A. "During Stalin's period it
was absolutely impossible because,
for the type of activism constantly
occurring now, you would be sen-
tenced to a minimum of 10 years
in prison. When or how it began
is difficult for me to tell. Most
likely it started perhaps with the
incident in Leningrad with the at-
tempt to leave by plane. No, no,
this actually was the last act. not
the beginning. Although the fiie
of Judaism in our Russian Jewish
youth may seem extinguished, 1
feel there is still a spark glowing
in the embers."
IIHIHC Of SADNESS
Later on, analyzing the inter-
view, we felt that this was a high-
ly intelligent, very sensitive man
who is proud of being an Israeli.
Several times he gave us the im-
pression that he was constrained
in his replies. When we realized
this we simply asked another ques-
tion unrelated to the previous
reply.
As we listened to the tape fcr
the purpose of writing this article
we suddenly realized that the city
he was describing, having one
synagogue and no Jewish schools
since 1949, is now still a city with
a comparatively large Jewish popu-
lation Prior to the October revolu-
tion of 1917, this city was one of
the great centers of Jewish learn-
ing and scholarship.
As we write these notes we have
a feeling of sadness.

JERUSALEM !JTA) AI
long debate developed Sunday in j
the Cabinet on the morality of
gambling, following a suggestion
by Religious Minister Zerah War- '
haftig that the ceiling on winnings \
irom the football pools be set at
IL. 1,000.
The issue came up during discus-
sion or a new bill seeking to reorga-
nize the pool following a commit-
tee's report in 1971 that it was
rife with corruption and cheating.
IN THE upshot, the Cabinet
agreed to Housing Minister Zeev
Sharef's suggestion to postpone the
decision sine diem since the Knes-
set had anyway recessed, and no
one was going to recall it to legis-
late on football pools.
The debate was Yigal Allon's
debut after six weeks of sickness
with heart trouble, and Premier
Gokla Meir welcomed him back in
everyone's name. Allon as educa-
tion minister is in charge of sport.
He said the majority of the
ministerial legislation committee
had favored a winnings ceiling of
IL. 250,000, but Warhaftig
demurred, believing IL. 1,000
more appropriate.
THE NEW law will set a limit
on an individual's weekly stake of
fL. 216.
Allon said there had been pres
sure from various sports federa-
tions to have a ceiling even higher
than IL. 250,000 because these
sports organizations benefit from
the takings which go for stadiums
and facilities.
But Allon had stood firm on IL. \
250.000. Allon noted in passing that
fouis and crowd misbehavior had
been substantially reduced this
last soccer season following the
implementation of other recom-
mendations of the football Inquiry
Commission which sat in 1971 un-
der Supreme Court Justice Moshe
Elzioni.

Today Esther Gordon has mem-
berships in the Sinai Sisterhood,
the National Council ot Jewish
Women, in Hadassah and the Bran-
deis University Women's Commit-
tee. Daughter Robin, following in
her footsteps, belongs to BUG and
is a senior USY member.
One son. Robert, goes to school
in New York City, and 11-year-old
Brian enters the American Herit-
age School this fall. All are out-
door people, especially Mother,
who was a physical education
major at the University of Miami
Father is up and Jogging at six In
the morning and Esther walks two
miles each day on the beach. The
whole family bikes together, plays
tennis, swims andindoorsplays
fiercely competitive backgammon.
The "Salute to Israel" to be
staged next week at Temple Beth
El is the result of the work of
many individuals and organiza-
tions within the greater Hollywood
community. The myriad efforts of
all were coordinated by Esther
Gordon in her role as chairman of
any cultural and educational com-
munity projects to emanate from
the Jewish Federation's Commu- i
nity Relations Committee. J
That body, which is made up of |
every Jewish organisation in the
area, has many areas of interest
including social action, but it is
in the cultural community arena
that Esther Gordon has involved
herself. She is currently and en-
thusiastically behind the South
Florida Community Center con-
cept because "Hollywood could not
support such a center alone in
terms of the money needed to staff
it competently.
"1 would be in favor." she added,
of a joint project ith Ft. Laud-
erdale and Pompano, but since j
the Dade County land has already
been purchased and the blueprints
di awn up. it seems to be the
logical choice."
In the interim between Holly
wood approval, if it is forthcom-
ing, and completion of the North
Miami COmmunitj center facility,
she endorses Federation's "Opera-
tion Outreach" which would fill
the gap with planned programs of
activity within our area's physical
boundaries. "It is particularly im-
portant for the teenagers." she ex-
plained. "Important as temple ac-
tivlties are. the youngsters never
get to meet kids from other schools
and other temples. This kind of
program would get them together
with new faces."
The quiet side of Esther Zinn
Gordon is manifest in her potted
annuals, in her rose garden and
in the ubiquitous ferns that accent
the nooks and crannies of her ex-
quisite house. Every flower and
every plant with which she sur-
1 rounds herself is alive but. most
j of all, life bubbles forth from this
' lovely lady of the lake.

Continued from Page 4
more than a decade ago, but le-
yal experts are still arguing the
justice of the violation itself, and
It is now being resurrected in
the Habash kidnap attempt.
What is left for Israel in her
vulnerability is to cast Habash
in the same role Eichmann played
in Jerusalem:
Habash is an enemy not only
of the "Jewish people," but of
ivilized society generally;
Habash directs murders not
just in Israel or in Arab lands,
but also in Athens and Washing-
ton, Munich and London;
Israel must act because no
one else will.
OF THE first of these, it must
be said that the "Jewish people"
they were in the Eichmann case.
Eichmann could have been
called, and with considerable jus-
tification, an enemy of civilized
society. The moral tone of the
Eichmann case, despite Israel's
clear infraction of the law,
emerged out of the wrong done
a people for thousands of years,
and for thousands of years never
rectified.
But Habath is an enemy of an
individual nation against which
he is carrying on a guerrilla war.
There is no clear moral tone
in the Habash case despite the
Arab terrorist war against Israel
because Israel Is no longer a
supplicant. Israel is the leading
military power in the Middle
Rast, acting for Israeli interests,
not an exilic 'Jewish people."
In responding to Habash's ter-
rorism, Israel is herself engaging
in war. And unless Israel te will-
ing to become as base and even
revolting in her diplomacy as the
United States or the Soviet
Union, she must recognize the
responsibility that goes with her
role as a military power which at
least theoretically cloaks itself in
vast Jewish moral pretentious-1
ness.
It can not include air piracy j
for whatever reason. That is Is-!
rael's own position on the at-
tacks against her own civilian air
fleet.
*
THIS LEAVES the two argu-
ments that Habash's terrorism
reaches beyond the Israel-Arab
conflict and threatens other na-
tionals, as well, which no one
seems willing to do anything
about.
Those on the outside looking
in refused to act in the Eichmann
case either because of the same
moral embarrassment that im-
pelled the Germans to be dis-
crete, or else because their own
interests were not involved, and
they could afford to take a hu-.
manistic position toward the i
many Israeli violations that the
kidnapping of Eichmann repre-
sented.
But Israel's interception of
the MEA plane is not in that
category at all. Humanism will
come harder, much harder among
the increasingly pinched outsid-
ers, who may very well be im-
pelled to do something about it
now a simple flip-flop, for
example, in U.S. foreign policy
in the Middle East, weighed to-
ward the Arabs, which is what
the "energy crisis" alarmists,
like the Standard Oil people in
their letter in California, have
been pressing for all along.
Not at all what the Israelis had
in mind, but that could go a long
way toward stopping the attacks
in Athens and elsewhere.
In the skies over Lebanon, Is
rael's imprudence may have
given the alarmists and the
Arabs themselves the ammuni-
tion they've been waiting for.

Dedication Of Riverside's
Hollywood Chapel Sept. 6
THE POLICE have proposed
a change in legislation to permit
partial parking on pavements of
certain streets. The proposal
would permit parking on parts
of sidewalk pavements of streets
which don't serve as main art-
eries. The police said this new
regulation would add 5,000 park-
ing spaces in Tel Aviv, the city
hardest hit by parking shortages.

a significant enlargement of Riv-
erside's services to the Jewish
families in the county. Its location
was carefully chosen both because
of the modern facilities it makes
available and for its convenience.
Located on Hollywood Boulevard
across from the Fashion Mall, the
new Riverside is minutes away
from all county arterial roads, mak-
ing it easily accessible to all com-
munities within Broward County.
Closing day of the 1973 camp session was
a festive celebration with each child par-
ticipating. There were games and booths
and prizes galore as the children said fare-
well till 74.

Taping May Not be a Bad Thing
^
COKDINO TO the papers, the talk in the
White House is all tape recorded. .Maybe It's
a bad idea, but as usual Israel is first.
It ni said of Ben-Guriotr when he was
e Minister at least in the beginning
whenever anyone came to talk with him
vould take notes, writing down what the
n said. There was one difference from the
ti House taping: the person saw Ben-Ciurion
jng down his words. Ben-Gurion's explana-
for his practice was that the writing served
tier imprint on his mind the thought of
lenon he was talking with. Writing can be
^K.-m of clarification.
I We should like to have had tapes or notes
.&< of Ben-Gurion's late wife, Paula. What she
dK. was always interesting. She had a way of
y.ng to the point. No heating about the bush.
VK instance, the UN* has always leaned to the
side in view of the large voting power of
^H Arab bloc When some years back Dag Ham-
mar lo'il. :' l'\ Secretary General, visited
Hi.-, and presented his position, I'aula said to
4
...
him, ".Mr. Hammarskjold, you are such a nice
man. Why don't you get married?"
So much has been missed by unrecorded
conversations. Take the case of Martha Washing-
ton. Here was a lady married to the most im-
portant man in American history. George Wash-
ington was the father of his country, so Martha
Washington must have been the mother. Vou
WOUld think that the country would know some
things she said. Maybe if the President's house
had been taped, we might have heard her say at
least. "George, you better put on your rubbers,
or you will catch a cold."
What a loss that the conversation between
President Truman and President Weizmann on
the recognition of the State of Israel was not re-
corded Weizmann said, "Mr. President, you really
haven't it so bad. You are President of a big
country, but I am President of a nation of presi-
dents."
We know that Weizmann said that to Tru-
man because Mrs. Weizmann has so reported. But
did Truman say anything'.'

Sc*:.. this nation will be 20
down the road from the
[m0U8 Supreme Court de-
. Brown v. Board of Educa-
the Kansas case triggering
ps the most furious Amer-
hain reaction of our time,
it will be a full decade
passage of the Civil Rights
Act i 1964. placing the federal
government near the eye of the
school integration storm.
And -ooner than that, the U.S.
Congress will resume the battl
^**.canning fr"m President Nixon's
anti-Ochnol bu-ing proposal. Mean-
while, the sections of our coun-
try listed al>->\ -. along with other
large, communities, find old
friends pitf'd against each oth-r
as battle lines sharpen over the
issue.
When the historic decision was
handed down in 1954. it was in-
deal a unanimous court that de-
clared: "In the field of public
education, the doctrine of sep-
arate but equal' has no place.
Separate educational facilities
are inherently unequal." Some
will recall that when the news
flash announcing the Supreme
Court decision was brought into
a meeting of the Savannah. Ga..
Rotary Club, the ruling was
greeted with applause. Yes. truly.
And. indeed, a recently pub
lished study by the U.S. Civil
MghtS Commission reveals that
many people have been clearly
misled about several aspects of
the desegregation issue. That sur-
vey indicated that 67 per cent of
the American people favor ra-
cially integrated schools as a na-
tional objective.
Probing further, those who
conducted the study found that
onlv 21 per eeut favor bluing
when ordered by the courts. But
a still deeper level of questioning
revealed that when the respon-
dents were asked about a limited
scale of busing in cases where
there is no alternative to segre-
gated education, the percentage
of those favorably inclined rises
to above 50 per cent.
Meanwhile, human friction over
official efforts to comply with
the Supreme Court decision and
to abide by the Civil Rights Act
of 1864 is bitter to record. In
Detroit, where the public schools
may have to
money short.)
J. Koth whose
Mi ,A
close because of
e. Judge Stephen
integrity obliged
him to make a ruling that re-
quired crost-busing of Detroit in-
ner city and suburban children,
has been viciously criticized.
The Legendary Rabbi And
Preacher from Brooklyn
IF YOU WERE to take a gallop-
ing poll among the rabbis of
America, asking them to name
our greatest preacher, chances
are that the result would be al-
most unanimous.
They would all chime in with
the name, Levinthal
Rabbi Israel Levinthal is in-
deed a master homil-'tieian.
Not only is he a pulpiteer of
the first water, but his ingenuity
in extricating from Jewish sourc-
es lessons that illuminate out
daily life is almost startling.
Who is I.evinthal? Ask your
nearest rabbi, and he will tell you
that he is. the rabbi-founder of
that bulwark of Brooklyn Juda-
ism, the Brooklyn Jewish Center
on Eastern Parkway.
One of the originals of that
type of edifice known as the
"shul with a pool," Brooklyn
Jewish Center, since 1919. has
been an example of the kind of
all-embracing institution conceiv-
ed by Rabbi Mordecai Kaplan,
who said the Jewish community
should be "reconstructed" so that
every phase of Jewish civiliza-
tion should be centrally engen-
dered from one democratically
elected body.
Rabbi I.evinthal, himself the
son of an equally legendary Rabbi
Levinthal, of Philadelphia, re-
cently turned 85.
Still vigorous, he is getting
compliments on his latest book
called. "The Message of Israel,
a collection of his perspicacious
messages and some nostalgic
reminiscences.
In one sermon Rabbi Levinthal
opines that the most beautiful
word ever muttered is Hinaynee,
Hebrew for "Here am I." and
he reminds us of the times it
was spoken by biblical person-
ages and how important it is for
us to respond in this way when
nobility calls.
In another sermon he tells us
why a passage in the prayer read
on the Sabbath before Rosh Ha-
shanah ends, "Chaverim kol Is-
rael." comrades are what all
Jews should be to one another.
Why, he asks in the manner of
our sages, doesn't it say that all
should be "achim." brothers?
Because, brothers are born, but
friends we must become. Man-
kind must surge beyond blood
kinship and understand It is link-
ed together by spiritual ties.
Among his other books are "Ju-
daism: An Analysis and an Inter-
pretation (1935i. "Point of View:
An Analysis of American Juda-
ism" 1958). and Judaism Speaks
lo the Modern World" (1963".
Hi-- brother. Judge Louis I.ev-
inthal. shared the I.evinthal fam-
ily fame, but in a legal direction.
He was appointed judge on the
Philadelphia Court of Common
Pleas, a position he held until his
retirement in 1959.
Genocide Convention Languishes
SENATE Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield
had pledged at the close of the 92nd Con-
gress that "early" in the new Congress he would
bring up the genocide convention for a Senate
vote. But the "new" Congress has not yet seen
it and backers of the convention, virtually the
entire Jewish community and a majority of the
senators, seemingly are getting nowhere with
pleas for action.
In the spring. Democratic Sens. Proxmire
and Church and Republicans Hugh Scott and
Javits asked Mansfield by letter to put the issue
00 the Senate calendar. Mansfield reportedly did
not reply. Then Proxmire and Javits together
and Church separately went to him personally
about it and he promised action "right after" the
July 4 recess.
When Javits approached him again after
the holiday. Mansfield advised that it was not
a good idea to bring up the issue before the Sen-
ate recesses for a month beginning Aug. 4 be-
cause of other major pending legislation. Mans-
field Observed that the Senate majority favoring
tlie convention would 1m- unable to prevent a
fiHlWitcr that would stymie important measures.
He suggested that the genocide issue be put off
until the Senate returns Sept. 6 following Labor
Day.
Thus the convention, despite support by the
Nixon administration and a Senate majority, con-
tinues to lark l' s. official approval almost 25
years after it had been unanimously voted on
Dec. 9. 1948. by the UN General Assembly.
Big Failing: New Edition of Meyer Levin Autobiography Not Updated
ufEYEK I.EYIN is the author of "The Settlers," a
H>ook w bich we regard as the epic story about the
pionr i .i .1 earlv settlers i'l Palestine from IR90 to
1920. It ranks higher than David Maletz' "The Young

(P*ckH ''. ik- SI.P5. 547 pp.). The book marked the

The principal weakness of the author is the un-
sparing proliferation of verbiage. The transliterations
of names from Hebrew to English is poor. |i> -
"ch" instead of "k." e.g.. Chfar Blum (a kibbutz)
should be Kfar. B'riha. the organization that operated
Aliyah Bet. is spelled as "Bravah Despite these minor
faults, the book is as much historical as autobiographi-
cal. Apart from the events iu bit lie. ihu. book pre-
sents a panomara of front-page news from 1920 to
1948. Levin was a participant in a.l of these cither
personally or as a newspaper correspondent There is
presented a bird's-eye view of American life, especially
that of Chicago, incidents of anti-Semitism, overt and
covert, the Depression, a nudist camp in Chicago, the
Spanish Civil War. the life of the kihbut/niks in the
1920s, and Jewish-Arab relationships in the period
from 1920 to 1948.
Interspersed with all the foregoing are nan. >s
BUCh is Ben HeCht, Ernest Hemingway. Golda Meyer-
son. Arnold Gingrich. James Farrell and numerous
references to Lev ins earlier works such ns "The Old
Bunch," "Yehuda." and "Mj Father's House."
If there are disbelievers concerning the influence
of the Catholic church until 1940 on material published
in magazines, they should read the book and learn
how free pre.-.-." was more a verbalization than the
description oi an existing state
Levin did not up-date the book for the present
printing. No changes have been made since 1948. He
mi [hi have added an epilogue stating what happened
to Tere.-ka ll won't tell), that he now lives in Israel
NOW York, and whether Israel has answered any
of the question* that he raised 25 years ago. The last
t"w pages of ine book make an excellent outline for
a course of study on Jews and Judaism. We hope that
Levin will continue his autobiography to 1973.
