Dole, Lugar Appointments Warm Israel
The new leadership in the
jepublican-controlled Senate,
kh was elected recently, is
jtcied to maintain the pro-
|rael position of the outgoing
bngress, one of the most
fpportive ever of Israel, and
iy even improve on this
[This includes Sen. Robert
|le (R Kan.), who was
cted Majority Leader; Sen.
Ian Simpson (R., Wyo.),
jio was elected Dole's
puty; and Sen. Richard
igar (R., Ind.), who will be
lairman of the Senate
Ireign Relations committee
len the 99th Congress con-
ges in January.
3UTGOING Majority
der Howard Baker (R.,
hit.), who is retiring from
[Senate to seek the Repub-
lic nomination for the pres-
idency in 1988. supported aid
for Israel and other issues of
importance to the Jewish State
but he was not among the
leading advocates of Israel in
But Dole, who is also ex-
pected to seek the presidency
in 1988, has been a staunch
supporter of Israel since
coming to the Senate in 1969.
He has close tics to the Jewish
community and frequently
speaks before Jewish organ-
Dole has supported all aid
programs for Israel and, as
chairman of the Senate
Finance Committee, helped
guide the Free Trade Associa-
tion bill between Israel and the
United States through the
Senate this year.
WHILE opposing the
Carter Administration's sale
of F-15s to Saudi Arabia in
1978, Dole supported the
Reagan Administration in its
sale of AW ACS to the Saudis
in 1981. Speaking to the
annual meeting of the Amer-
ican Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC) last
April, he urged support of aid
to moderate Arab countries
because of the Soviet threat to
the Middle East.
Simpson has supported aid
to Israel and, like most
Republicans, voted for the
Reagan Administration's sale
of AWACS to Saudi Arabia.
Probably the most im-
portant result for Israel in the
Senate leadership elections
was Lugar's becoming
chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations committee,
which became possible after
Sen. Jesse Helms (R., N.C.)
said he would remain as
chairman of the Agriculture
Helms, during his recent re-
election campaign, had
promised to remain on the
Agriculture Committee to
protect his state's tobacco
interests, but there had been
strong pressure from the
conservative right for him to
take the chairmanship of the
Foreign Relations Committee
created by the defeat of Sen.
Charles Percy (R., 111.). Helms
has consistently opposed all
foreign aid, including that to
Israel, and has been con-
sidered by some to be anti-
Lugar, who is one of four
Senators defeated by Dole for
the Majority Leader's posi-
tion, has been building ties
with the Jewish community
since coming to the Senate in
1977. He is considered
"good" on foreign aid for
Israel but like the other two
senators voted for the
AW ACS sale.
Sen. Dole
Lugar is expected to go
along with most Administra-
tion requests. He and the new
Senate leadership are expected
to look favorably on the ex-
pected Administration
requests for arms for Jordan
and Saudi Arabia.

Eppler Elected
New JDC President
Heinz Eppler
Heinz Eppler, the newly
elected JDC president, is com-
mitted deeply to Jewish
causes. The JDC is one of his
primary causes. A warm-
hearted and generous person,
he is especially involved in one
of JDC's major relief
programs which he practically
conducts single-handedly with
great devotion and vigor a
program highly beneficial to
thousands of Jews overseas.
He was born in 1927 in Ger-
many, in the Rhine Valley,
near Heidelberg. His parents
could trace their ancestry to
living five generations in Ger-
many. His father fought in the
ranks of the German army
during the first world war. He
was six years old when the
Nazis came to power in 1933 in
Germany, and he vividly
remembers their torchlight
parades, marching and
shouting anti-Jewish slogans.

Novelist Singer
Bashful and Timid Or Shrewd?
Shortly before his 80th
birthday, Isaac Bashevis
Singer, the Yiddish writer
and Nobel laureate, was
interviewed by Isidore
The interview appeared in its
entirety in Pioneer Woman, the
magazine of Pioneer Women-
Na'timal. Singer's 80th birthday
occasion has since also been
marked by a new hook by Paul
Kresh entitled "Isaac Hashevis
Singer The Story of a Story-
teller, published by Dutton
Following is an abridged
version of the Haiblum in
terv lew
Isidore Haiblum: in your
memoirs, you often depict your-
self us confused, bashful and
timid Hul photographs of you
taken in the thirties and forties
show h nun full of self confidence
und shrewdness
Isaac Hashrvis Singer: Well. 1
will tell you. I wns never shrewd
Too much confidence in myself. I
didn't have either Hul I had
confidence, so to say. in the
higher powers 1 felt that they
wouldn'i let me down completely.
This 1 alwuys lielieved.
IBS: I don't know. There's no
reason for faith. There are many
reasons for thinking one thing or
another, but when it comes to
faith, we don't know. We just
have what they call in Hebrew
bitachon (security!. I believe that
what is destined, somehow will
take place.
IH: Did this belief help you go
your own way as a writer, despite
the considerable opposition that
you encountered in your early
IBS: I would say yes. I just
felt that some power which takes
care of every human being,
maybe even every creature, every
animal, has decided that I should
do this kind of work and it will
help me. My father always said.
If I'm not destined to be thrown
out on the street. I will pay the
rent, one way or another. This
kind of belief I have inherited
IH: You are going to publish
vour memoirs called Love and
Exile in the taU.
IBS: Let me tell you, they are
not real memoirs. I would say 95
percent of them are memoirs, but
there is an element of fiction
there The reason for it is that
some of the people whom I
describe are alive I call it fiction
based on memoirs.
IH: The period just after
World War I is one that you con-
tinually return to in your writ-
ings. What is the attraction this
time has for you?
IBS: I was still a boy during
the First World War. And you
know, many writers feel that the
first years of their creativity, or
of their lives generally, are im-
portant. You remember things
more sharply they make a
greater impression on you. Of
course, in my case, I go beck to
my childhood more than many
other writers, because I happen
to have lived longer and had more
time to write. Also I had to
publish. I was always connected
with the Forward, and I had to
publish weekly pieces. So when I
didn't have a topic for a novel. I
went back to my memoirs, to my
memories, deciding that they
were just as good as a novel
IH: How did the hopes and
dreams that you had for yourself
as a young man in W arsaw. when
you first started 10 write, turn
out? Did you achieve whBt you
set out to do?
IBS: I would say no human
being is completely satisfied with
what he was achieved The reason
for it is that every one of us could
have achieved more than he or
she did, if we would have applied
our energy and our will So my
feeling is. I haven't done enough
Hut just the same. I've made an
effort As far as material achieve
ment. I achieved more than I ever
expected. I never expected to get
much recognition or In lie known
in the world
IH: You often write about
bachelors who have many affairs
V\ hut are your thoughts on mar-
IBS: I will tell you You cannot
really write any novel al>out
|ieople who are married and live
peacefully one with the other. Il
is not a topic for literature
tiecause if everything is all right,
why write alioul it? So when I
write alioul love, the protagonist
is either a bachelor or a divorced
man or a widower. He cannot be a
happily married man. because
then there would be no story
IH: Do you have any words to
say about marriage in general?
You have been married for 44
years Did having a wife help you
in your work?
IBS: Yes. it helped me in a
way It's not so important having
a wife, hut having a home, an
address, that's important. A per-
son who moves every four weeks
from one furnished room to
another, as I did before I married,
could not have really stayed with
his work. Many negative things
could have happened which
would have kept me away from
my writing At least two years
before I got married. I felt that it
was time for me to have a home
It is true that after having a
home. I still behaved for years,
and I still do. like a man who
lives in furnished rooms I mean I
try to steal some of my bachelor
hood pleasures. But still, home is
important. I would say it is im-
portant for everybody, writer or
IH: Your wife comes from a
German-Jewish background and
you are a Polish Jew She doesn't
speak Yiddish. How did this
affect vou initially?

IBS: In a way, it was not good
for me. It would have been better
if she could speak Yiddish. On
the other hand, she did not inter-
fere with me. For years we lived
together and I told her that I was
a writer. She only had to believe
me nothing had been tran-
slated. So to say. she gave me
credit. And this is the way we
lived and I grew accustomed to
it. She minds her business and I
mind mine She does not tell me
how to write and she does not
quarrel with my critics She is. in

am really a very lucky
At various stages
& the years, I have had a
3 of careers. Each has
C something new and
fctorent, and I have never
fc*n one to resist a challenge.
After college I wrote
Lmscopes for a well-known
SSgcr. This was fun but
Eg with his kooky per-
Xlity became a problem
C I wrote greeting card
Eh and when that got to be
lirwome 1 became a
lopywriter and had the time of
^y life in advertising.
Then came marriage. In
hose days a woman had to be
content at home, being a good
Jewish wife and mother. I
tried, but it wasn't exciting
and it certainly wasn't
fulfilling. So I opened a
service for typing and editing
theses, term papers, and
dissertations. This was most
rewarding since I had the best
of both worlds. 1 could work
at home, receive good pay,
and still be with my family.
When my husband was
transferred to another state, 1
had already been bitten by the
creative work bug and looked
about for something to do. At
the request of our local Jewish
Federation, I began to write
book reviews for their paper.
They were well received and

This message brought to you by:
Memorial Chapel Inc.-Funeral Directors
the editor asked if I would
consider doing a column.
Well, now, this was a whole
new world. What could I write
about? What could I put down
on paper that would interest
people? After much thought, I
realized that my strength lay
primarily in Yiddishkeit, in
nostalgia, in the way things
used to be, and Random
Thoughts was born. It took
off like a rocket. Readers
identified and remembered. It
was fun to write about my
family, places I had been,
things I had done, and, in
general, whatever I felt like
putting on paper.
It did not take long for
other Federation papers to
find me and at one time the
column appeared in seven
different papers throughout
the country. It was a glorious,
wonderful feeling and I cannot
tell you how great it is to get
paid for doing something that
you love and enjoy.
During the time we lived in
North Carolina, a crying need
arose for kosher catering. It
started with simple Sisterhood
luncheons and I ended up in a
formal catering business doing
lavish weddings and classy bar
And so it continued. The
years sped by and before I
knew it, my husband's time
for retirement had come.
After much discussion,
weighing all the pros and cons,
we opted for the leisure life of
Florida. Well, I figured, now
it was my turn to throw in the
towel also. No more column
deadlines and no more
catering. 1 would live the good
life, take it easy, relax, and
become a Floridian. Wrong!
Not long after we arrived,
the Jewish Floridian called
and I began to write my
column once more. My
readers have been most
gracious and appreciative.
There are letters and phone
calls and comments from
strangers and friends. It is
most rewarding.
But it has not stopped there.
Out of the blue came a request
from a local Jewish
organization to speak, to be
their Drogram, as it were. I
agreed although I had never
done this before. It was an
experience of pure joy. There
was such an aura of ex-
citement, of rapport, and of
appreciation that it set my
adrenalin pumping. This is yet
another facet to my long and
varied career.
I write about all this to state
positively that retirement is
not the end of the line. If you
have talent in any direction,
put it to use. Everyone can do
something better than anyone
else. You might bake a better
pie, sew a finer seam, or write
a better letter. Someone,
somewhere, can use your
services. All you have to do is
look around and speak up.
Even I am now pursuing a
whole new direction. Speaking
before people is a wonderful
way to express yourself, tell
others your thoughts, and
possibly entertain. This seems
to be my little gift and I am
going to use it as long as I can,
in the hope that my listeneres
will find pleasure and laughter
in what I have to say. It may
not be everyone's idea of
retirement, but let me tell you
I am having one helluva time!

community better.

On 'Mosaic'
Lights A Story Of Chanukah
"Lights," a half-hour holi-
day special about Chanukah,
is the first major production
of Israel's promising young
animation industry. It is a fan-
tasv adventure which retells, in
allegory form, the story of
Chanukah and the Miracle of
the Lights. This special is
being sponsored locally by the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County and will air on
Federation's TV program,
Mosaic," Sunday, Dec. 16, 9
a.m., on WPTV Channel 5. It
will be introduced by Barbara
Gordon, host of "Mosaic."
The program took two years
to produce and involved 80
people working in seven
animation teams. Narrated by
film star Judd Hirsch, star of
the TV comedy series "Taxi,"
the film is designed by Faith
Hubley whose New York
studio has won four Academy
Awards. Leonard Nimoy, who
plaved Mr. Spock on "Star
Trek." and Paul Michael
Glaser. Starsky of "Starsky
and Hutch." portray two of
the animation's chief
characters. The animation was
carried out in Israel at Ein
Gedi's animation studio with
the help of extra teams from
Jerusalem and Tel Ai i^.
Designed to compete with
top network holiday entertain-
ment, "Lights" was carefully
conceded, according to Israeli
journalist D\ora Waysman
who reviewed the film.
"Without once using the wora
"Jewish" or "religious," it
delivers a powerful message:
that everyone has the right to
be different. And not just the
right the obligation to
preserve the unique traditions
of one's heritage against the
prevailing culture, no matter
how enlightened, sophisticated
and humane that culture might
be. The film's theme of

National Park Service
For Move To Sponsor Nativity Creche
National Park Service decision
to use government funds to
sponsor a Nativity creche, on
public park land, was criti-
cized by three national Jewish
civil rights organizations.
The American Jewish
Congress asserted the plan
violated court orders. The
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith challenged the
federal agency's claim it was
constitutional for it to set up a
Nativity scene near the White
Dr.' Robert Gordis,
executive vice president of the
American Jewish Committee,
said the committee planned to
bring a brief before the
Supreme Court, signed by it
and the National Council of
Churches, to challenge "the
display of religious symbols on
public property."
Theodore Mann,
AJCongress president, in a
letter to Interior Secretary
William Clark, said the deci-
sion violated federal court of
appeals rulings in 1970 and
1977 barring the use of
government funds for that
He said the creche is to be
displayed as part of an annual
Christmas Pageant for Peace
in Washington. Nativity
scenes have been included in
previous pageants but paid for
by private funds, he said.
Mann wrote that the Park
Service rejected an offer from
a private group to pay for the
creche, deciding to use public
funds, relying on a Supreme
Court decision earlier this year
in "Lynch v. Donnelly" which
approved public funding for a
creche on private property in
Pawtucket, R.I.
Declaring that the decision
reflected "an affirmative and
unseemly desire on the part of
the Park Service to identify
itself with a particular reli-
gion," Mann said the service
was "ignoring an outstanding
court order" in the belief that
that order had been super-
seded by "a subsequent court
Mann declared "We do not
believe it is the business of
government to sponsor any
religious display be it a
creche, menorah, or some
other symbol."
Kenneth Bialkin, ADL
chairman, said the Park
Service decision showed "a
lack of sensitivity for the feel-
ings of non-Christians and
also violates the First Amend-
ment's prohibition against
establishment of a religion."
Bialkin said the Park
Service was "ill advised" to
base its decision on the

In a brief telephone interview
from Nicosia with Israel

were stymied by the Jordanian
government's failure to give its
official consent to his visit,
despite pressure on his behalf
by the PLO. Israel TV had
reported that both King
Hussein and the PLO agreed
to allow Darousha to land at
Amman and sent a special
plane to carry him from

pearance of a Labor

IT APPEARS most likely
that Darousha was finally
persuaded to abandon his
mission under intense pressure
from Labor Party colleagues.
Labor's Knesset Whip, Rafi
Edri, reportedly had 10
telephone conversations with
Darousha after he arrived in
Cyprus, urging him to return
to Israel. Edri acted on orders
from Premier Shimon Peres
who would have been severely
Israel's official policy is to
denounce any contacts with

Although a number of Israeli
political personalities on the
left have met with PLO
representatives abroad in
recent years, and two of them
had a meeting with Arafat in
Beirut in 1982 at the height of
the Lebanon war, none were

to be seen whether he will
suffer for his actions. Justice

that if Darousha went to

motives were ideological.
Eliahu Ben-Elissar, a leading

recent communique received
from the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee
representative in Ethiopia ad-
vised that the overseas relief
agency had received permis-
sion to operate feeding sta-
tions in the Gondar region,
according to an announcement
made by JDC executive vice
president Ralph Goldman.
The announcement said the
JDC has received donations
and pledges exceeding
$200,000 from concerned Jews
and members of the general
public since it "opened its mail
box" to contributions on Oct. >
23. Half of the sum was com-
mitted by the Central British
Fund World Jewish Relief
of London.
The Emergency Famine
Campaign went into high gear
in recent weeks in response to
a worldwide appeal by the
Ethiopian government.
According to the JDC, up to a
half million people in Gondar,
one of the four provinces
especially hard hit by a pro-
longed drought, face starva-
tion. The major problem,
advises the JDC, "is getting
the relief supplies to the
victims as roads are few and
Goldman stated that the
JDC is consulting with local
authorities to solve the
problem of supplying the
feeding stations and is also
negotiating with AID to
obtain additional food sup-
plies for distribution in the
Gondar region in the months
to -come. "Meantime," said
Goldman, "shipments of still
more medical supplies,
blankets, cloth, and clothing
are being arranged."
Recent contributions by

of donated food supplies from
crowded depots into the in-

Alitalia plane left from
Kennedy International Airport
with seven tons of donated
new clothing and cloth at an
estimated value of $220,000
for distribution in Ethiopia. It
was donated to the American
Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee, it was announced
by the JDC.
The transportation of the
clothing and cloth to Rome
was provided gratis by
Alitalia. Ethiopian Airlines
will transfer the goods from
Rome to Addis Ababa, the
capital of Ethiopia.
Earlier, Ethiopian gover-
nment authorities advised the
JDC that the "greater por-
tion" of a 70-ton, $500,000
shipment of new clothing,
cloth and hospital supplies has
been distributed. According to
the officials of the Ethiopian
Relief and Rescue Com-
mission (RRC), 78 bales of!
cloth and 42 bags of clothing
were distributed to the needy
in the Wello and Bale regions
of Ethiopia, both severely,
affected by drought.
The report added that the
remaining 2,298 cartons of
hospital supplies and 54 bales
of cloth "will be distributed in
the shortest possible time."
According to the RRC report,
the medical supplies are to be
made available in Gondar.
In recent weeks, the JDC
received permission to operate
feeding stations in the Gondar
region and is negotiating with
the Agency for International
Development for the provision
of food in coming months. An
estimated half a million people
face starvation in the Gondar
region one of the areas in
Ethiopia hard hit by drought,
the JDC reported.
The JDC opened its mailbox
to donations for Ethiopian
famine relief on Oct. 31, and
has received more than
$300,000 in cash and pledges
to date, a third of which was

Schmoozing in
The jShetlands.
Jews who have made Scotland their home have not only taken to the hills
and vales. They've even taken to the outlying Shetland Islands. And when
they get b >gether they're like Jews the world over. They while away the hours
catching up on the latest news of their hnxxJ. Or herd, as the case may he.
To warm such conversation, they know there's nothing better than a roll
on the tongue of fine scotch whisky. Such is also the case here in America,
where JckB Rare Scotch is the one most savored. Specially blended for
srmxrthness, it's the perfect drink for those quiet times. And that would
account for why, when it comes to sharing a glassful, neither the Jews of
this country, nor of The Shetlands, have ever been sheepish.

committee of four, headed by
Modai, recommended an
additional $395 million cut in
the national budget. Other
members of the committee are
Economic Minister Gad
Yaacobi and Ministers-
Wit hout-Port folio Ezer
Weizman and Moshe Arens.
But they ran into trouble
when they brought their
proposals before their col-
leagues at a stormy five-hour
special session of the Cabinet
last Friday. The outcome was
that the recommended cut was
whittled down to $365 million.
The stiffest opposition to the
proposed cuts came from the
ministries with the largest
budgets: Defense, headed by
Yitzhak Rabin; Housing, by
David Levy; and Education,
by Yitzhak Navon.
The failure to introduce the
drastic budget cuts most
economists consider necessary
has raised the spectre of higher
taxes. Treasury sources said
yesterday that unless the
spending cuts are forth-
coming, taxes must rise in the
next fiscal year even though
the highest marginal tax now
stands at 65 percent.
Another obstacle to
spending cuts is Histadrut's
demands that the Treasury
honor existing wage agree-
ments and pay workers their
increases when due. Modai
offered the wage hikes in
exchange for an .agreement to
raise the prices of subsidized
products and services, thus
reducing the burden on the
Treasury. But Histadrut
Secretary General Yisrael
Kesser flatly rejected the deal
at a lengthy meeting at
Premier Shimon Peres'
Meanwhile, the Treasury
has been forced to inject huge
amounts of money into the
economy because it is unable
to raise the prices of subsi-
dized items. Last month the
Bank of Israel printed 130
billion shekels. This translated
into a daily expenditure by the
Treasury of 4.3 billion more
shekels than it took in, the
equivalent of $200 million,
which means further
deterioration of Israel's
already dangerously low
foreign currency reserves.
The government faces
another challenge on the labor
front. The Histadrut teachers
union announced that it would
stage a one hour "warning"
strike tomorrow in support of
its demands for pay incre-
ments. Modai, so far, has
turned them down.

Some Israeli hawks see the
changing Arab voting patterns
and Darousha's aborted

radicalization of Israel's Arab

simplistic view. The two

Taub Retires
tiating with the governments
of Poland and Czechoslovakia
for the resumption of JDC
relief activities which were
banned in these two countries
by the same regimes for years
in the postwar period at a time
when the need for JDC relief
was great among the remnants
of the Jewish communities
Taub's other achievements
include formally bringing the
JDC to Egypt last year with
the authorization of the Cairo
government, and securing per-
mission in Ethiopia this year
to start JDC relief work there.
The achievements in the two
Moslem countries where Jews
live under extreme difficulties
are milestones in JDC history.
The expansion of JDC relief
activities in Rumania and
Hungary during the period of
Taub's presidency is a great
credit to the American Jewish
A modest and gentle person,
he has a distinguished record
as a great humanitarian in
Israel and in countries of
Western Europe, North Africa
and Latin America where the
JDC conducts impressive
operations. His visits to some
of these countries as JDC
president have given new hope
to the Jewish communities
there. His numerous visits to
Israel have cemented the rela-
tions between American Jewry
and the people of Israel, as
well as with the government of
Continued from Page 1
quite proud of the fact that
Jewish giving sets standards of
giving throughout the United
States. A very generous
contributor among the
most generous Taub
believes in the precept of Mai-
monides, the great Jewish
philosopher, that the highest
form of giving is anonymous
giving, when giver does not
know who the recipient is and
the recipient does not know
who the giver is. He prefers
not to make his contributions
His parents came to the
United States in the large wave
of Jewish immigration in the
1920's, and he remembers the
"Tzedaka Pushkes" in the
house of his parents into
which his mother, following
the example of her mother,
put nickels and dimes. His
grandmother, who died at the
age of 95, was a very strong
matriarchal figure in the warm
and loving Orthodox house-
hold. The Holocaust hit the
family hard. On his mother's
side there was not a single
survivor left. On his father's
side only two aunts survived.
Deeply committed to Jewish
causes, Taub is also active in
serving the broader commu-
nity He is on the board of
trustees of the Interfaith
Hunger Appeal, a director of
the New York Shakespeare
festival, chairman of the
Business Employment
Foundation and served as
chairman of the New York
chapter of the Hemophilia
Foundation. He also served on
the faculty of New York Uni-
versity as an adjunct professor
of computer applications and
information systems. He will,
of course, continue his active
participation in the JDC
leadership, as chairman of the
Board of Directors.
Taub has gained
prominence as one of the pio-
neers of the computer age. He
is the founder of the
Automatic Data Processing
Company, the biggest inde-
pendent computer service
company in the United States,
employing more than 8,000
people and having millions of
dollars worth of computers in
SO service bureaus around the
U.S. and in four countries
overseas. The firm is today a
$250 million-a-year interna-
tional business. He was
president of the firm from
1949, when he founded it; till
1970 and later was chairman
of the board of directors till
Today he is no longer the
chief operating officer of
Automatic Data Processing
but still very much a part as
chairman of the executive
committee. Busy as he is,
Taub gives much of his time to
the JDC. He is also interested
in other Jewish causes. He
began his activity for the
United Jewish Appeal when he
was 19 years old and soon
found himself in the ranks of
the national UJA leadership.
The Epplers have three chil-
den two married daughters
and one son all raised in a
American-born, he grew up Jewish spirit. Eppler's philo-

of sharing. He feels that

Eppler Elected ^^^^^p^1
, "" visited Rumania this year to
whom study Jewish life there, they
took along their son, David,
whd is a student of law at
George Washington Univer-
sity. The very liberal-minded
and sensitive youngster
worried about the great
poverty in underdeveloped
countries. Having lived in
affluent neighborhoods in
New York and Palm Beach,
where the Epplers have their
homes, he never came face to
face with Jewish poverty. It
was in Rumania where he first
saw an entire Jewish commu-
nity of 30,000 Jews in dire
need, with about 10,000 sur-
vivors of the Holocaust among
them aged and alone.
David returned home a
young man with understand-
ing for Jewish needs. He was
impressed with the JDC aid
given to the needy Jews in
Rumania through welfare
institutions, medical services,
including medication; homes
for the aged; kosher kitchens
with hot meals, free to those
unable to pay and at a cost
based on the ability to pay for
others; meals-on-wheels for
the incapacitated who also
receive periodic visits from
doctors, nurses and social
workers. David was also im-
pressed with JDC providing
the poor with clothing, giving
some of them cash grants, and
helping the needy with other
forms of assistance.
Heinz Eppler enters the
JDC presidency at a time when
the U.S. and the Soviet
governments are renewing
their long-interrupted talks on
arms reduction. The renewed
talks give hope that the
Kremlin may also renew its
permission for Jews to
emigrate in large numbers.
Should this happen and it
may Eppler will during his
term as JDC president be an
extremely busy leader in the
f assistance which the JDC will
1 provide to the Soviet Jewish
emigrants in transit to
countries in which they will
choose to settle. Those settling
in Israel will be helped by the
Jewish Agency.
The U.S.-Soviet talks will be
a complicated and drawn out
affair, but they open the
possibility that the U.S.
government's attitude
favoring unhampered Jewish
emigration from the Soviet
Union will find the proper
jcho in the Kremlin. The talks
will hopefully reduce the
tensions between the two
countries, tensions which
some see as the cause for the
Kremlin's clampdown on
Jewish emigration.
parents lived in peaceful
friendship suddenly turned
into enemies. As Nazis they
picketed their home as the
home of a "Jude."
Eppler came to the United
States as a youngster, after his
parents succeeded in leaving
Germany in 1938, a year before
Hitler started World War II.
He continued his schooling in
this country and later his mili-
tary service in the U.S. armed
forces. When he returned to
civilian life, he entered the
retail sales field in clothing,
ultimately rebuilding the New
York Stock Exchange listed
firm of Miller-Wohl which
now has 410 retail stores in 40
states, including Alaska. This
year he sold his interest in the
firm and is devoting more of
his time and energy to Jewish
communal service. He is
proud of the fact that he is an
immigrant Jewish boy who
made good.
In 1951 he married into an
Orthodox Jewish family. The
tatner ot his wife, a religious
Jew, made a living, like many
Jewish immigrants from
Eastern Europe, by becoming
a tailor. He was also a part-
time cantor. Eppler ascribes
his interest in Jewish philan-
thropy to the influence of his
wife, Ruthe. When he sold this
year his interest in the huge
firm which he built up, he
asked his wife, "Would not
your father have been proud
of us?" Her answer was, "He
would have been proud more
of your devoted activity in the
sophy is that no Jewish
education is complete without
a Jewish atmosphere at home.

future it Uod givee me strength
to do it.
IH: I hope so. Now, tell me, do
you feel that women have
changed any over the years since
you were a young man?
IBS: Yes, very much. When I
was a boy, the average Jewish
girl believed in one God and one
husband. And today, the modem
Jewish woman is as modern and
as worldly and sometimes
even more so than her gentile
counterparts. So I would say that
we have, in a way, lost what we
call the taharas hamishpacha
(family purity). It's not there
anymore. The so-called Jewish
princess not only wants better
clothes and trips and places to
study, but she's also interested in
love-making she doesn't
believe really in the institution of
marriage. The change is trem-
endous and far from being
positive, good for us. You can
state the fact, but you cannot
really change it. You cannot take
a girl who has studied at Harvard
and has read all the modern
novels and seen all the shows and
make her like my mother. You
cannot do it.
