[May I aay Shalom to you,
Vmbers of the Pinellas County
rish community as wo ap-
ach the awesome High Holy
ky season. The New Year
Jliday marks a reunion and
Imecoming for the Jewish
people. Moved by mysterious ties
that are centuries old, the magic
of the High Holy Days bring us
closer to our faith, to our
tradition, to our people, to our
fellowman, to our God.
You are familiar with the
beautiful words of the psalmist,
"I shall lift up mine eyes to the
mountains, from whence shall my
help come?" When have these
words been fraught with more
meaning and significance? For
even though scientific strides and
amazing feats have made ours an
age of miracles, we are never-
theless shaken by fears and
BBM .-w.
F ***.

anxieties. Our eyes turn to the
heavens and in the words of the
psalmist, we, too, aak "Whence
shall our help come?"
The observance of-the High
Holy Days is a great opportunity
for finding our way. As we return
to the synagogue, our spiritual
home, for prayer and meditation,
we can rediscover our true selves
and draw strength from the tried
and tested resources of our faith.
I urge you to rally to the call of
the shofar blast, and to approach
these days with true sincerity
and deeper devotion.
The past has taught us that it
is the soul-stirring prayers of the
liturgy, as well as the meaningful
message of the holiday itself that
can calm the storm, ease the
tensions, and allay the fears.
May the New Year 5741 give
us this courage and this faith so
that we. like the psalmist of old,
can repeat the joyous af-
firmation, "Our help cometh from
the Lord who made heaven and
May we utilize the spiritual
homecoming of this High Holy
Day season to broaden the
horizons of our lives; to restore
our vision; to strengthen our
hope. Then, in the words of the
Rosh Hashanah blessing, this
coming year will not be just
another year but a N EW year,
a GOOD year, a SWEET year.

Meaning of Rosh Hashanah
Rosh Hashanah is traditionally a time when
Jews make a Chesbon Sefesh, an accounting of the
soul. Supreme symbol of Rosh Hashanah is the
shofar. when as many as a hundred sounds issue
forth from that ancient instrument
Indeed, the sounding of the shofar marks the
climax of the pleaful Rosh Hashanah service. It gives
meaning to the greatest moment of our terror, the
high point of the Days of Awe As the shofar sings
out. momentous events take place: the primeval

Penitence and the crowning moment beyond it: Yom

to which we have confessed pervades our hopes for
ourselves ar.c for ail of mankind.
GravelThe Predictable
The statements by U.S. Sen. Mike Gravel
following his defeat at the hands of Clark Gruening
for Gravels seat in the United States Senate show us
the temper of the times. Even in far-away Alaska,
they are frankly anti-Semitic
Gravel blames his defeat on undue 'Jewish
influence against him because of his unsympathetic
statements about Israel and his positive feelings
toward Araby.
Whichever way you slice it. the whole thing
smells of oil. And why not in Alaska, which has more
than its own fair share of the stuff? As things become
increasingly difficult on the energy market, the smell
will become more odoriferous so far as Israel is con-
For any Jew. either in public or private life, the
result is an anti-Semitic atmosphere. Gruening is in
no sense of the word Jewish. He is the grandson of
Alaska's first Governor before statehood. Ernest
Gruening. who was also one of Alaska's two first
Ernest Gruening long ago claimed his religion as
Ethical Culture, although he never disavowed his
Jewish roots.
Still, Clark Gruening has had to bear the barb of
Gravel's insinuations. They are, as we say, nothing
that could not have been predicted.
The Point Fails Us
The Union of American Hebrew Congregations
is being urged to take the "sexist language'' out of
the Bible and prayer if women are to win religious
equality. This is the view of the UAHC's own
Annette Damn, who serves as the Reform
organization's interreligious affairs coordinator.
Her solution? A new vocabulary that would
include for "Lord" this brace of substitutes: "God,
Blessed One, Divine, Redeemer, Ruler, Protector,
Heavenly One, Maker." Presumably, these are less
sexist. How, we wonder?
Ditto for "Master," which Daum would prefer to
see as "Ruler." Are these unisex rather than sexist?
If we have to aak so many questions, somewhere
along the way it is clear that the point has failed us
even if not Damn's purpose.

France has accused Israel
of disregarding inter-

out "preventive strikes" in
Lebanon which endanger

Israel of not only endangering
Lebanon's territorial integrity
and stability but of worsening
the situation within the entire

and Ethics.)
Hebrew classes will again be
offered to beginners and in-
termediate students every

noon beginning Oct. 13. The
Yiddish-speaking group, which
attracted an unusually large
number of participants last year,
will meet once a month on
Saturday evenings at 8,
beginning Oct. 18. An unusual

place on Nov. 15 when the group
will stage a "Yiddish Square

monthly meetings with speakers
and will present many other
special events.
The public is invited to attend
services at Congregation Beth
Shoiom and io participate in its
activities. Rabbi Lubin will
continue his program of
preparing boys and girls for Bar
Mitzvah. He will also prepare, as
in the past, willing adults who
have not experienced their own
Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
A special invitation is ex-
tended to all Pinellas County
Jewish families who are presently
unaffiliated with another
synagogue or temple. For further
information, contact the
synagogue office.
American Jewish Congress
assailed an amendment to the
1981 Department of Education
appropriation bill, which passed
the House of Representatives
Aug. 27, barring the Department
of Education from spending any
funds for the purpose of
"preventing the implementation
of programs of voluntary prayer
or meditation" in the public
Prof. Abraham S. Goldstein,
chairman of the American Jewish
Congress Commission on Law
and Social Action, called the bill
"the latest in a series of un-
successful Congressional at-
tempts to overturn the decisions
of the Supreme Court prohibiting
religious exercises in the public
He added: "Although we know
of no program of the Department
of Education which would be
subject to the language of this
amendment, it is disheartening
that members of Congress, who
have taken oaths to support the
Constitution, have voted to
subvert that very Constitutioa."
AJCongress also criticized a
proposal by the Department of
Health and Human Services to
keep the race, sex, national
original and religious preference
of Medicare and Medicaid
patients in nursing homes on a
"Master Patient Register."
In testimony before a regional
hearing held by the Department
at 26 Federation Plaza, N.Y.C.,
Florence Galkin of the American
Jewish Congress' Commission on
Urban Affairs declared: "The
Constitution's mandate of
separation of curch and state
stands for the proposition that
government inquiries about
religious preference, where
permissable at all, must be
narrowly limited to the minimum
necessary to satisfy government
"While there is a legitimate
need to inquire into a patient's
religion, if any, so as to facilitate
the provision of religious ser-
vices, we see no reason why that
information must be maintained
permanently in a central file."
The American Jewis i
Congress spokesman also urged
that requirements for the
availability of religious
preference diets be expanded to
include the accommodation of
other religious observances. She
suggested specifically that in the
departmental regulation
requiring compliance with state
and local laws, Orthodox Jewish
objections to autopsies be taken
into account.
Golda Meir

Public schools should take
cognizance of religion and its role
in our society. Programs which
teach about religion and its role
in the social and historical
development of civilization do
not violate the religious
neutrality of the public schools.
The principle that public
schools shall be religiously
neutral has been established and
accepted in a long line of
Supreme Court decisions.' The
Supreme Court has defined
"religiously neutral" as refrain-
ing from: promotion of any and
all religions; expressions of
opposition or hostility to
relation: showing Dreference for
one religion over another.
Accordingly, public schools
must be committed to preserving
the principle of Separation of

Holtzman s legislative savvy for
powder puff glamor in a race that

vote as a bloc vote or a special-

them as bigots or hate-mongers

Today, we have resigned from
the significance of a Jewish vote

Legislators Seek Meeting With Muskie to Clarify U.S. Abstention
(JTA) Angered by the
Carter Administration ab-
stention on the United Na-
tions Security Council reso-
lution censuring Israel for
its Jerusalem law, 30 Con-
gressmen have asked Sec-
retary of State Edmund
Muskie to meet with them
and discuss U.S. policy
toward Israel.
Rep. Sidney Yates ID., ILL I.
dean of the Jewish members of
the House has asked for the
meeting on behalf of his col-
leagues to include Rep. Dante
Fasceil >D Flai. Jonathan
Bingham (D.. N.Y.i and James
BLanchard (D Mich.). This de-
velopment followed additional
statements from top-level
Republicans and Sen Carl Levin
iD.. Mich, i denouncing the US.
FORMER Tennessee Sen Bill
Brock. chairman of the
Republican national committee,
described the Security Council
censure as another step" in the
vicious campaign which by its
nature, is as much anti-American
as anti-Israel.'
Brock said that the Palestine
Liberation Organization. in
concert with the Soviet Union
and radical governments, have
for months made clear and public
their intent to expel Israel from
the United Nations and to
destroy the Egyptian- Israel
peace treaty."
Brock said the Carter
.\aministration s failure to veto
the resolution represented an
abandonment of our commitment
to the peace process, a con-
-loution to the isolation of a
>mocratic ally and friend
Israel and a violation of the trust
of the American people by
government elected to represent
the bet interests of our nation."
HE ADDED: The Adminis-
.rauoc s abstentions are repug-
nant you cannot speak against a
resolution and then refuse to vote
against it- The action belies the
Earlier, in another condem-
nation of the U.S. abstention.
Sen. Jacob Javits (R.. S.Y.I,
said. I appreciate the problems
with other countries, but we have
vetoed before. The abstention
leaves the resolution as a valid
Security Council resolution, and
that's the difference between day
and night."
Levin told the Senate that the
Administration's abstention was
a temble mistake" and added.
"The point that must be made
and made clearly is that it
does not serve our national in-
terests to participate in and sanc-
tion a process which seeks to
focus exclusive attention on the
behavior of only one of the
parties involved in this complex
and sensitive situation. And it
does not serve the interests of
peace to participate in or sanction
such a process.
PRIOR TO the vote 18
members of the House
telegraphed Muskie. urging him
to veto the resolution. This
message, signed by both Demo-
crats and Republicans, was
drafted by Rep. Benjamin
Oilman (R.. NY).
Rep. Benjamin Rosenthal.
deputy majority leader in the
House, who was one of the
signer*, sent a message to
Muskie. following his address to
the Security Council. In it.

UAHC Prescribes
How to Cut Out
tlewish Sexism
MONTH EAL Sexist language in ihe Bible ana
in prayer must be eliminated it women are to achieve
Ugioua equality, the American Psychological
\ssociation was toid here.
Annette Daum of New York, interreligious affairs
oorcunator lor the Union of American Hebrew Con-
flations (UAHC), called for a muiti-
nominationai approacn to reverse the damaging
ifects on both men and women oi centuries oi
.anguage tnat misrepresents women and misleads us
as to the very nature of God.*'
The UAHC is the congregational arm of Reform
Judaism in the United States and Canada, rep-
resenting 1.2 million members in 750 synagogues.
DESPITE PROGRESS toward equality of the
sexes in the religious sphere. Daum said, "Sexist
language remains a major problem, particularly in
seminary training programs.*' She said women
seminarians find themselves in "a men's club atmo-
sphere studying a body of literature which is male-
oriented, taught by men, mostly about men, in-
terpreted and translated by men in language that
oozes with masculine metaphor."
Daum said many Reform synagogues were now
using a glossary of substitute terminology to help
them replace masculine words and phrases used in
the liturgy.
AT A recent interfaith consultation titled, "How to Survive
as a Feminist in a Patriarchal Religion," participants concluded
that "the major problem was the elimination of sexist language
in biblical translation, liturgy and education material,"
"A few rabbis are already using inclusive tMffttfM on a
regular basis in their congregations," she observed. "Members
of other synagogues are seeking the same kind of changes. It is
no longer unusual for congregations to experiment with creative
services along parallel linee."
The Union of American Hebrew Congregations has also
prepared checklist to help Jewish feminists rate their
congregations on the issue of sexism, Daum said. It is contained
in "Jewish Options for the "80s." a 56-page kit of consciousness-
raising programs, recently published in the UAHC for use in
Reform synagogues.
wrote Muskie that he had
listened to his remarks before the
"I thought your statement,"
Rosenthal wrote to Muskie. "was
as effective a presentation of
American goals and strategy in
mediating the Arab- Israeli
conflict as any I have beard in the
past 20 years. I would have pre-
ferred that the United States
vote against the resolution but
within the context of the con-
straints operating upon our
foreign policy, I understand the
decision to abstain."

U.S. 'Regrets' Request for Info
The State Department has expressed "regret"
to the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith for
seeking information about religious preference on
biographical information forms used in con-
nection with American participation in the World
Conference of the UN Decade for Women.
In response to an ADL complaint that this was
an "invasion of privacy," Judith P. Rooks, acting
director of the Office of the U.S. Secretariat for
the World Conference, declared that she con-
curred in the view that individuals should not be
required to identify themselves as to religion,
unless they did so anonymously.
Clarence D. Long, chairman of the House
Appropriations Subcommittee on Foreign Oper-
ations, is the author of an amendment which
would cut off U.S. foreign aid to countries
sheltering Nazi war criminals such as Josef
Mengele and Gustav Wagner. Mengele, the
Angel of Extermination" at Auschwitz, is in-
dicted in West Germany for throwing a live infant
into a fire and splitting the skull of a teen-age girl
with a cleaver. He is currently believed hiding in
Wagner was known as the Hangman of
Treblinka, and is hiding out in Brazil. Long
Ix-lieves that his amendment would also help
flush out Klaus Barbi, thought currently to be in
Bolivia. "War criminals are being protected
throughout Latin America," says Long.
Claire Pyser, of Monsey. N.Y., has been chosen
to head the forthcoming 13th National Board
Conference of Women^ American ORT in
Houston, Tex. Assisting her will be Gerri Prince,
of Cedar Grove, N.J., who will serve as conference
The conference, which will run from Oct. 20
through 23, will attract some 800 delegates of
Women's American ORT, representing 140,000
members of the organization in over 1,200
chapters from coast to coast, and will serve as the
springboard for ORT's second century of
vocational and technical operations around the
The Houston National Board Conference, she
said, "will deal with the ways and means for
meeting these challenges by expanding ORT's
worldwide network and promoting quality
education and upgraded vocational education in
the United States."
The American Jewish Congress has criticized a
proposal by the Department of Health and
Human Services to keep the race, sex, national
origin and religious preference of Medicare and
Medicaid patients in nursing homes on a "Master
Patient Register."
In testimony before a regional hearing held by
the Department, Florence Galkin, of the Amer-
ican Jewish Congress' Commission on Urban
Affairs declared, 'The Constitution's mandate of
separation of church and state stands for the
proposition that government inquiries about
religious preference, where permissible at all,
must be narrowly limited to the minimum neces-
sary to satisfy government interest.
"While there is a legitimate need to inquire into
a patient's religion, if any, so as to facilitate the
provision of religious services, we see no reason
why that information must be maintained per-
manently in a central file."
Millions of tax dollars could be saved each year
if legislation to stop year-end "spending sprees"
by federal agencies becomes law. The bill, intro-
duced by U.S. Sen. Richard Stone (D., Fla.), tries
to discourage a practice by some agencies of
unnecessarily spending money left over at the end
of one year in order to avoid a budget cut the next
The General Accounting Office released a study
July 28 that found that during the past two years,
some agencies spent as much as 52 percent of
their total fiscal year budget in just the last two
months of the year. This study had been
requested last October by Stone and others.
National Council of Young Israel President
Nathaniel Saperstein has called upon Ambas-
sador Sol Linowitz, the U.S. special envoy to the
Middle East, to spare no effort in the current
round of talks in the Middle East.
"It is imperative at this critical time that the
U.S. take a positive role in the negotiating
process," he said. "The U.S., through Ambas-
sador Linowitz, has the opportunity to serve as
catalyst for peace. This chance must not be
passed up," he added.
The proportion of Jews in religious cults far
outnumbers their percentage in the general
population, according to a new book discussing
the rapid growth, wealth, and power of cults in
America today.
In Prison or Paradise? The New Religious Cults
(Fortress Press, $8.95). authors James and
Marcia Rudin estimate that Jews comprise be-
tween 20 and 50 percent of cult members though
they are less than three percent of the total
American population.
No single element brings a person into a cult,
says Rabbi James Rudin, who is assistant
national director of Interreligious Affairs of the
American Jewish Committee, and Marcia Rudin,
a former professor of religion at William Paterson
The Rudins assert, "The main reason people
join a cult is as old as humanity itself: the search
for a caring community the most vulnerable
target for cult recruitment is the person, young or
old, who has made no meaningful connection with
an established religion, who is in search of
spiritual values and transcendent meaning, who
is willing, even yearning, for strict discipline and
authority, and who may be burdened with guilt
about affluence or sex or drugs."
The U.S. must reassess its financial com-
mitment to the UN, according to Shirley Billot,
national president, and Toby Willig, vice presi-
dent of public affairs for Emunah Women of
America, in light of the recent diplomatic defeats
for the U.S. and the urgent need for new economic
policies for industry and for the economy.
It is incomprehensible that in 1980 the U.S.
continues to fund one-fourth of the UN assessed
budget and continues to contribute hundreds and
millions of dollars in voluntary contributions, she
declares. The oil rich countries of the world
continue to pay a pittance based on an outmoded
They, more than any other country in the world
today, need to have their budgetary contributions
made higher so that they pay their fair share of
the costs of the UN. Soviet Russia is also in
arrears on its assessed budget contributions to
the UN.

Rumanian Musicians in Israel
TEL AVIV (JTA) Some 30 young men and
women comprising the chorus and orchestra of the Jewish
community in Rumania have arrived in Israel headed by
Rumania's Chief Rabbi Moshe Rosen. The group, which
was invited to Israel by the mayors of Jerusalem, Tel
Aviv and other cities, is the first from a Communist
country to come to Israel to present .Yiddish and Hebrew
songs. Their 10-day visit to Israel was with the approval
of the Rumanian government, according to a report from
