WASHINGTON (JTA)
Former Under Secretary of State
George Ball said here that the
United States has "now to face
the problem of trying to come to
some general agreement with the
Soviet Union as to the terms and
form of the settlement'' in the
Middle East.
The agreement would be under
UN Security Council Resolution
242, which he said "represents
the broad framework of an agree-
ment on which both the Soviet
Union and ourselves have
agreed."
RESOLUTIONS 242 and 338,
were adopted after the 1973 war,
for safe and secure borders for
Israel.
Ball, appearing on ABC's "Is-
sues and Answers," thought it
"may be possible for us to reach
some kind of understanding with
the Soviet Union on the broad
lines of the settlement, and then
this can be considered at Geneva
with the assembled states there."
Ball, who met with Kissinger
and other prominent Americans
a week ago, said that he was
"very dubious that the bilateral
diplomacy can be carried any
further."
The former high official in the
Kennedy and Johnson adminis-
trations, who recently opposed in
a senate hearing any new tough
legislation to counter the Arab
boycott, criticized Kissinger's re-
marks linking the Indochina situ-
ation with his Middle East failure
and also the secretary's "rather
bravura, flamboyant type of
diplomacy."
KISSINGER, said Ball, engages
In "very foolish" and "dangerous
talk" in implying that a possible
element in his Middle East mis-
sion failure was concern in Is-
rael, that the U.S. could no
longer fulfill its commitments be-
cause of events in Indochina.
"When he, Kissinger, talks
like that, he simply reenforces
the danger," Ball said, adding
that from time to time "Kissin-
ger errs like everybody else."
The U.S., Ball said, should be
"positioning the U.S. politically
and diplomatically to minimize
any danger, any loss or any cost
that comes from this.''
The position the U.S. should
take, Ball said, is that "we have
done everything anyone could
possibly expect us to do to help
the South Vietnamese stand on
their own feet, and, unhappily,
they were not able to, and this is
too bad, but that was what our
real commitment to them was."

Can it Happen Again?
By JACK SIEGEL
NEW YORK (JTA) The recent statement by
Ashraf Ghorbal, the Egyptian Ambassador to the United
States, in a right-wing weekly in Argentina that the Arabs
have decided "to put an end to Judaism which must
disappear. Today, tomorrow, it will disappear," placed
alongside the memorialization of the 30th year of the lib-
eration of Nazi extermination camps puts into bas relief
the whole question again of
Robert Wiener.
"Everything that motivated us
a] workers and as givers to do
what we have done up to now,
tells us that we must intensify
our giving, our working, and our
speed.
"Our Telethon effort? have
been very gratifying, and I ap
predate the volunteers who have
mi lin^ly devoted many hours to
achieving this end."
anti-Semitism.
Ghorbal's call for the destruc-
tion of a religion is new; it is
not Zionism, it is not Israel he
wants destroyed, but In effect
the whole Jewish people. Hitler
had the same idea in his final
solution and while he did not
succeed, he did dispose of six
mi.lion Jews, among other na-
tionals.
THIRTY-YEARS AGO, this
writer was a Private in the Mili-
tary Intelligence Service of the
Army of the United States. And
until the time he was shipped
home in December, 1945. he was
assigned to two American intern-
ment camps for Nazi political
prisoners.
In that time, he 'interviewed"
an avra-.e of six a day. six days
a week for a little more than 40
weeks. He had a glaring oppor-
tunity to look into the heart of
German Nazism generally, and
with respect to the Jewish ques-
tion.
A parade of "human beings"
crossed his path, men and worn
en who had worked for Hitler
and had advanced his plans and.
while many lied about their ra
demption, others claimed they
were "belogen und betrogen"
Hied to and betrayed) by the
Bonzen (officials). Others claim-
ed "Ich bin kein Nazi" (I am not
a Nazi).
Dr. and Mrs. Howard Kay have
accepted the joint chairmanship
of the Federation Center Pro-
gram Committee, which will be-
gin meeting in May.
Federation President Bette
Gilbert outlined the scope of this
committee's responsibility, which
will signifcantly expand the Com-
munity Center services to be of-
fered through the Jewish Fed-
eration of Palm Beach County.
Utilizing the facilities of Camp
Shalom and other social service
agencies as required, the pro-
grams will be designed to begin
serving varying age groups in our
community and will be the basis
for development of a future Com-
munity Center.
Special Message From
1975 Campaign Chairman
"A time of economic stress is a time for stronger commu-
nity identification, not !ess," stated Dr. Marvin M. Rosenberg,
General Campaign Chairman for the 1975 CJA-IEF campaign.
"It is precisely in times of hardship that the role of our
community organizations exrands to care for the needs of
Jews all over the world. They can't wait till next year.
Campaign workers in all divisions are renewing their ef-
forts in the final weeks of the drive. Special meeting in both
Men's and Women's Divisions are being held, and the windup
Telethon Division is underway with encouraging responses.
With the economic situation in IsrarV leing what it is
devaluation of currency followed by increase in taxeswe must
have it within ourselves to help sustain them," Dr. Rosenberg
continued.
"We urge all members of our community who have not yet
made their 1975 gift to do so without delay, and to voluntarily
make it the largest possible contribution. The times demand
it. The Combined Jewish Appeal agencies and our local institu-
tions depend on it. We must continue to strengthen the quality
of Jewish lives and meet the humanitarian needs of our Fellow
Jews."

LABEL KATZ
During his six-year tenure. Mr.
Katz traveled more than 300.000
miles, much of it to stimulate
public awareness of the plight of
Soviet Jews and to promote, in
his own words, "the right of the
Jew to be himselfto be Jewish
on his own terms and not those
decreed by political dictates."
IN MEETINGS with Presidents
Eisenhower, Kennedy and John-
son, with Popes John XXIII and
Paul VI, with India's Prime Min-
ister Nehru, Archbishop Makari-
os of Cyprus and other govern-
ments, religious and education
leaders throughout the world, he
sought their "diplomatic inter-
ventions" with Soviet and other
regimes that restricted Jewish
life.
Mr. Katz continued his efforts
despite ailing health. He suffer-
ed from diabetes and the pace he
set for himself, against the ad
vice of doctors, led to the loss of
his sight 10 years ago.
The handicap notwithstanding,
he retained an active and lively
Interest in Jewish affairs until a
stroke, suffered last year, left
him bedridden.
HIS DEATH oamc three days
short of the 11th anniversary of
the founding of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry, a
coalition of major organizations
which serves as the coordinating
body for protest activities in sup-
port of Soviet Jews.
Mr. Katz was a principal con-
vener of a 1964 assembly in
Washington which brought to-
gether 24 Jewish organizations
and formalized the new group.
He was elected its first chairman.
David M. Blumberg. current
president of B'nai B'rith, in a
eulogy at the funeral service,
cited Mr. Katz's career as "ful-
fillments for the Jewish com-
munity he served. His intellectu-
al and cultral convictions were
strengthened by his persistence
and his physical courage."
A native of New Orleans, Mr.
Katz was a student of the late
Dr. Ephraim E. Lisitsky, a famed
Jewish scholar and poet, at the
New Orleans Communal Hebrew
School
HIS EARLY training made
him a fluent Yiddishist as well
as B'nai B'rith's first Hebrew-
speaking president a fact which
delighted such Israeli leaders as
David Ben-Gurion and Golda
Meir with whom he had met reg-
ularly during visits to Israel.
As another expression of his
Jewish heritage. Mr. Katz adopt-
ed his Yiddish diminutive
"Label" rather than retain its
English equivalent for his first
name.
Throughout his communal ca-
reer he was a strong advocate of
improved Jewish community fot
failing to face up to its educa-
tional failing* "with the same
vigor that it approaches social
and philanthropic issues."
Mr. Katz was graduated from
Tulane University and earned a
law degree there is 1M1. After
practicing law briefly, he moved
into housing rehabilitation and
real estate investments.
ARAFAT ADVISED McGovern
at a meeUng in Eirot that the
PLO does not accept the exis-
tence of the State of Israel and
does not recognize the right of
Jews to self determination. Rabin
told 600 delegates attending the
convention of Kibbutz Haartzi.
the Mapan sponsored kibbutz
movement, at Ein Hashofet.
The Premier said that the sec-
ond stage Egyptian-Israeli talks
conducted by Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger were sus-
pended last month at Egypt's re-
quest and that Egyptian Foreign
Minister Ismail Fahmy admitted

Kissinger told newsmen that it
was Egypt which decided to dis-

continue the bilateral efforts,
Rabin said. He said Israel sought
every possible way to keep them
going, but Egypt's reply was al-
ways negative.
RABIN SAID that Israel faces
three possibilities as a result of
the breakdown of the talks: A
resumption of war, reconvening
the Geneva conference, or a con-
tinuation of the bilateral talks
that were suspended. He express-
ed hope that Egypt would agree
to the latter.
Rabin addressed the Kibbutz
Haartzi convention Saturday
night. The convention defeated
a proposal supported by veteran
Mapam Leaer, Yaaco' Hazan, to
list geographical areas, including
the Raffah Salient, where the
movement plans to establish new
settlements during the next five
years.
The convention agreed to es-
tablish seven new kibbutzim with-
out specifying their location.
IT WAS understood however
that the areas include the Golan
heights, the Arava region, the
Negev and Galilee.
The movement has long oppos-
ed the dispossession of Bedouin
tribes from the Raffah region be-
tween the Gaza strip and Sinai

Secret Nazi Group
Sought to Mark
Hitler's Birthday
LONDON (JTA) A plan by a secret Nazi organi-
zation, many of them former high ranking SS officers, to
celebrate Adolf Hitler's birthday in Britain has been un-
covered by a British MP. Paul Rose, MP, is now urging the
Home Secretary to prevent Nazi sympathizers from enter-
ing Britain to attend a reunion of "Column 88."
Rose added that the Scotland Yard special branch
(political police) had intercepted an invitation letter in
which it was stated that full military uniform will be worn.
THE LETTER added that arrangements would be made
to take them to Warninglid, a picturesque village near
Brighton. It ends "Heil Hitler."
Rose, who has tabled a motion in the House of Com-
mons, added that other extreme right wing organizations
have taken part in similar demonstrations.
'These organizations do not present any threat to our
way of life, but they must be carefully watched," he added.

Israel's Anniversary
Israel began the celebration of her 27th anniver-
sary of independence last week on the eve of Iyar 5.
This is a time beset by fateful questions for Jews
both in Israel and abroad. It is not hard to sense that
the primary spirit is less optimistic than cautious, al-
though, as Hans Habe points out in his essay in The
Jewish Floridan Anniversary Supplement (see Sec. C),
we agree that it is time for all of us to return to the
mood before the Yom Kippur War.
This does not mean, whether they were right or
wrong, cockiness and arrogance, as the Arabs came to
see the predominant quality in the Israelis before the
1973 war.
Rather it means a certainty of purpose and of di-
rection that seems to have slipped from our hands dur-
ing the last year and a half at least, in any case,
since Israel's 25th anniversary.
"We must wonder at the strange ways of our peo-
ple's history and their capacity to make suffering into
the seed of survival," President Ephraim Katzir noted
on the eve of the 27th anniversary.
The endangered little community of 1948 has be-
come a nation of close to three million persons.
Its agriculture and industry are remarkably devel-
oped. Its capacity to build and to defend itself in the
face of fierce onslaughts of enemies repulsed again and
again all these are qualities that should leave Israelis
and their Jewish brtthren abroad far from dispirited,
as they seem to have become.
To see ourselves clearly now, we need in President
Katzir's view, the perspective not only of 27 years, but
of the many centuries of pain and sacrifice, faith and
vision that led to the emergence of the Jewish State in
our time.
We agree.
Are There Any Questions?
The latest news about the return of the bodies of
Israeli soldiers carries with it the explanation, if there
needs to be an explanation, of why Israel wants some
guarantees for all the concessions she, as winner, is
being asked to make.
The return of bodies was one of the major items on
the agenda at Km. 101. Israel had just turned the war
around and surrounded Egypt's Third Army.
The U.S., in conjunction with her criminal partner
in detente, the Soviet Union, had just demanded that
the surrounded Egyptian army be permitted to go free
wrth no concessions whatsoever from the Egyptian
masterminds of the war they launched and lost.
To forestall the possibility of yet another loss of
face by the Egyptians. Israel acceded. Within days,
Egypt rewrote the history of the Yom Kippur War, star-
ring herself in the role of winner.
Also within days, she flouted her agreements on
the return of bodies an item Cairo knows is emo-
tion-laden for the Israelis.
Nothing has happened since those day* nothing
until the other day, when Egypt finally shipped back
some Israeli bodies, but only on condition that they be
traded for convicted Arab terrorists now in Israeli
prisons.
Any questions, State Department, et al.. as to why
Israel places so little faith in Arab promises and even
less in the mere Arab "good intentions?"

14 IYAR 5735
WRITE this two months to the
dav that a column of mine
appeared here (Feb 14) entitled
"Bronstein Makes Is Feel
Moral."
Since then. I have been regaled
with letters, largely angry letters,
attempting to rebut my remarks
EVEN NOW that so much time
has elapsed, and the now of read-
er comment seems all but to have
abated, an occasional letter stil
manages to surface filled with
the kind of vituperation charac-
teristic of them all.
From the beginning, the most
angrv reaction was by one. Ar-
nold' MarkowiU. of The Miami
Herald, whose kinder comments
suggested that
I am asinine";
"It was entirely within the
province of the Herald's editorial
page to suggest a stiff sentence";
"Any validity your opinions
may have collapses with your
sarcastic description of the
Herald's coverage of the case";
-That's my work you're writ-
ing about, and I don't like your
tone."
THIS IS the order of Marko-
wiU' argument, but certainly, the
last is the most important for
him.
What was the column in ques-
tion all about"
It was simply thisthat San-
ford Bronstein's criminal activity-
was investigated, prosecuted anc"
punished with an order of zeal
far out of proportion to the zeal
and punitive intent brought
against any of the criminal ac-
tivities of any single Watergate
criminal or alleged criminal; that
the $867,750 Bronstein stole was
a childish prank compared to the
prize the Watergate crowd tried
to walk off with, which is to say
the sanctity of this nation as a
republic and the revered sense
of ttl highest principles as set
forth in the Constitution of the
United States.
NOW. |a Mr MarkowiU' last
point, which is. as I say. the most
important for him. the rest being
mere window dressing for a
bruised ego Nothing else that I
had to say about the essential
issue is of any significance to
him At the outset, he dismisses
my Watergate comparisons as
'fetched from far out in left
field."
I am sorry to have to burst the
bubble of such monumental self-
importance. But the fact is that,
in writing the column in ques-
tion, never did Mr MarkowiU or
the Herald or the Herald's edi-
torial page enter my mind even
one single time, except when it
came time to take notice of the
propagandistic atmosphere in
which the case was tried
Arrogant forces of power al-
ways find it hard to believe that,
in the end. they are undone by
anonymity In monolithic expres
sions of opinion, no single person
can lay claim to individuality He
who does, fails to survive That
is the paradox, and the pain, of
monolithic power
AND SO. when I was writing
my Feb. 14 column, never for a
moment was I aware of the exis-
tence of Mr. Markowiu. or aware
that Mr. MarkowiU was the re-
porter assigned to the Bronstein
case. I might as easily have
thought of Newton's third law or
Max Planck on quantum mechan-
ics.
And if I had thought of Mr
MarkowiU. or known of his
special significance to the case
still it would make no difference
because he and his reporting
were all beside the point
What was the point and what
I wrote about in the Feb 14 col-
umn in question, was not the
worthiness or the accuracv of his
reporting in the Bronstein case,
but the sanctimoniousness of the
entire procedure infecting both
the courtroom and the common-
'V ,a, t0,ne c,n not "'tribute to
Mr Markowiu personallv but to
a general editorial position re-
flected in his paper as a whole
leo
Mindlin
COMPARE IT. for example,
to the reporting of the Watergate
case as early as June. 1972. when
Watergate might easily have been
presented to the South Florida
public's mind as a critical presi-
dential campaign issue.
Of course. It was not.
And so to the sanctimonious-
ness in the Bronstein caw to
which I took bitter exception, I
added two subsidiary issues:
A lapse resulting in reserv-
ed editorial judgment to main
Uin the image of Nixon political
potency long after his Impotency
had become an international
scandal as compared with the
lapse resulting in prolix sensa-
tionalism to maintain the fiction
of a guardian press serving a
well-informed community;
# The enormous disparity in
the quality of justice meted out
criminals.
AND TO hammer the point
home. I made reference to
"Bronstein ... a Miami Jew who
dared rather incompetently (to
be a thief on a grand scale) and
so must be minished "
For me. this illustrated the dis-
parity in justice well enough for
anyone to see it. but apparently
not well enough for the Herald
to see it. or Mr. MarkowiU. who
dutifully opined in the best Na-
tional Conference of Christians
and Jews once-a-year Brother
hood Week spirit that "I don't
know what Sandy Bronstein's
ethnic heritage has to do with
it. and I don't think you know
either."
Deus dixit.
DR. RICHARD Ellis, of Ft
Lauderdale. saw H at least well
enough to equate the Feb. 14
column with syndicated colum-
nist Max Lerner's on the very
same issue: the FBI's literally
hounding of secretary Bobbie
Arnstein to a drug-crazed death.
while her employer. Hugh Hef-
ner, the perennial porno- aroused
post pubescent, walks around un-
molested.
Lerner's lesson? The high are
the mighty.
The rest of Dr. Ellis' letter
doesn't quite hit home to me:
If we would be honest, we would

cavations which constitute a

ments..."
In answer to the first action
there could be little quarrel that
Israel has "scruplously pre-
served" all the cultural sites in
the old city of Jerusalem. The
second charge, however, was
blatantly political.
Following the Six-Day War
in 1967, Israel took measures to
unify the Old City with the new-
er part of Jerusalem. By con-
trast, from 1948-1967 under
Jordanian occupation, exclusion
of Jews from the holy places
and desecrations were common
occurrences.
Even after four separate in-
spections by exjwrts, a majority
of UNESCO's Executive Board
remained dissatisfied.
Then, in October, 1974 with
the oil weapon now demon-
strably effective, the Arab bloc
became more militant. The PLO
overcame all resistance and was
accorded recognition.
Then. a November, 1974
UNESCO resolution alleged that
the excavations poeed a "danger"
to religious and cultural monu-
ments of the Old City. Still,
after very thorough, observa-
tions and findings, and finally a
cautionary note, UNESCO Di-
rector General Mahcu resigned.
The Arabs, swollen with suc-
cesses won at Rabat and at the
UN were intent ui>on making
UNESCO their instrument for
the Isolation of Israel. 'Die West-
ern World was stunned by the
UNESCO resolutions and West-
ern governments threatened to
out or eliminate their contribu-
tions.
In response to a growing and
angry public sentiment, the

lion (30 per cent of UNESCO's
budget) until the President cer-
tified that UNESCO returned to
its basic principles and purposes
Even more significant was t:ic
reaction of the intellectual |
munity. Money loss conceivably
could be made up by otkrich
Arab nations, but brain power
was another matter.
A petition signed by more than
500 eminent intellectuals called
for non-cooperation. A number of
high ranking specialists resigned.
Action came from other quar-
ters as well. Mme. Francoisc
Giroud, France's secretary of
state for women's affairs, ic-
fused to attend a UNESCO' con-
ference on the status of women.
Harvard economist Kenneth Ar-
row said UNESCO's act would
reduce it to irrelevance.
In mid-March a Paris dispatch
said intellectuals from 19 coun-
tries, including five Nobel Pr'zc
winners, denounced UNESCt )'s
anti-Israel action as endanger-
ing the world body's existence.
In expressing its displeasui-,
the group suggested how the ob-
jectionable moves could be nul-
lified.
The 40-member Executive
Hoard, the policy-making boy
of UNESCO, will meet in Paris
May 5-2 and, no doubt by then,
it will have felt the impaci Of
widespread international con-
cern.
Of course, the Board may not
perceive these internal contia-
dictions as warranting the nul-
lification of the resolution on
sanctions.

triumph over logic as well as
over the purpose of UNESCO.

In the first, 30 women survivors
of the Holocaust dressed in black
and wearing black shawls lighted
candles.
Later, after 80 New York city
school children came in carrying
lighted candles, six concentration
camp survivors, one of them a
woman born in the Warsaw
ghetto, lit six candles, one for
each million dead.
Can/or David Kusevitzky sang
the "El Mole Rachamin." During
these occasions many men and
women could be seen and heard
weeping.
BENJAMIN MEED, president
of WAGRO, set the theme for the
ceremony which also marked the
30th anniversary of the libera-
tion of the concentration camps
by American and allied troops,
when he noted that 30 yean ago
the world allowed the Holocaust
to happen, and it is possible that
it would happen again.

"an assassin of the Jewish peo-
ple," was applaufled at the
United Nations.
He said Jews had learned that
"No one can fight for us" except
ourselves. Barmore, who was
born in Warsaw, said the survival
of Israel is the only guarantee of
Jewish survival.
Elie Wiesel, the novelist whose
major theme has been the Holo-
caust, said the Nazis wanted not
only to kill the Jews but to blot
out their memory. He said one
who does not remember is,
therefore, an accomplice to their
murders.
MAYOR ABRAHAM Beame
also declared, "The Jewish people
and the Jewish religion are
threatened more and more with
extinction in various parts of the
world."
But he asserted "We will al-

fend the freedom and rights, net
only of Jews, but of all people."
' Gov. Hugh Carey noted that 30
years ago. as a major in the
United States Army, he stood be-
for the gates of Nordhausen and
"Witnessed the nightmarish hor-
ror of the slave labor camps and
crematoriums." He said that
despite the three decades that
have passed since then, "We see
and hear war mongering and hate
against the State of Israel by her
surrounding neighbors."
But he declared the "lesson
of the Warsaw ghetto uprising b
that heroism can stand up against
the passions of hatred and sur-
vive."
Both Deame and Carey issued
proclamations declaring "Warsaw

New York City and State.
Brando,
Dylan
At Seder
LOS ANGELES (JTA)
Marlon Brando, the screen star,
made an impromptu appearance
at the congregational seder of
Temple Israel of Hollywood and
gave an impromptu rendition of
the Kiddush, in English, to be-
gin the festival meal.
Bob Dylan, the folk singer of
the youth rebellion, began the
Grace After Meals by singing his
"Blowin' in the Wind," with the
congregation joining in.
BRANDO and Dylan were ac-
companied by friends from the
entertainment world, including
Helaina Kalliajwotes, Sarah Dy-
lan, wife of the folk singer, and
Kenneth Banks, a leader of the
American Indian Freedom move-
ment.
The appearance of the theater
personalities was a surprise both
to Rabbi Haakell Bernat, the
senior rabbi of the congrega-
tion, and the congregants.
Rabbi Bernat said the visitors
joined spontaneously in the wor-
ship and festivities.
THE ARTISTS made reserva-
tions anonymously, through a

and his friends had come to the
Reform synagogue, said "It was
the rabbi's ability to create
warmth, social activism and wor-
ship innovation" which had at-
tracted them.
Rabbi Bernat, in introducing
the luminaries, said it was in the
spirit of the festival of freedom
to have present "unexpected
guests," adding that Brando,
Dylan and Banks "had contrib-
uted to the sense of justice and
social awareness of the American
people."
He said that "Blowin' in the
Wind" had become part of the
freedom songs which had found
their way "into the informal
liturgy of liberal congregations."

Study Finds Students Reflect
Parents Attitude On Marriage
Editor's note: The Federation feels the information
contained in the following article is of timely interest
to our Jewish community. We are therefore grateful to
Dr. Bortnick for providing these facts based on his re-
cent research. The study covers the areas of religious
identification, ritual observance, dating practices, at-
titudes toward intermarriage and Jewish life, and pa-
rental attitudes toward interdating. The findings are
based on responses from some 600 unmarried under-
graduate students selected at random from the cam-
puses of The University of Florida (IF), Florida State
University (FSU), and The University of Miami (UM)
and are excerpted from "Patterns of Interfaith Dating
and Religious Observance Among Jewish College Stu-
dnts in Florida." By David M. Bortnick, Ph.D., Lake
Worth, Florida, 1975.
A significant relationship was
found between students' reli-
gious identification and their
parents' (most of the Conserva-
tive students came from Con-
servative homes, etc.)
Less than half of the Conserva-
tive students expressed a will-
ingness to intermarry, compared
with 70 percent of the Reform
and 91 percent of the nonaf-
filiated students. None of the
Orthodox students were willing
to intermary.
CONTRARY to past studies,
only 44 percent reported that
their parents objected to their
dating non-Jews.
On the Florida college cam-
puses, there was a direct rela-
tionship between the proportion
of Jews within the student body
and the rate of interdating. At
FSU. where less than 3 percent
of the students are Jewish. 60
percent dated non-Jews at UF,
where the Jewish student pop-
ulation is 10 percent, less than
half dated non-Jews, while at
UM. with almost 46 percent Jew-
ish students, only one-fourth
dated non-Jews.

DUffll high rate (80 per-

intermarry, the majority of Jew-
ish college students in Florida
prefer purposeful Jewish dating
partners.
On the other hand. Dr. Bort-
nick concludes that since a
majority <60 percent i of stu-
dents indicate they would inter-
marry t approximately 20 per-
cent have close relatives who are
not Jewishi. the stage may be
set for a rising incidence of inter-
marriage among Jewish college
students in Florida,

Israel Unveils New Jet, Says
People to Meet Half of Needs
By YITZHAK SHARGIL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Defense Minist er Shimon Peres said here that Israel was
prepared to produce SO percent of its wea pons needs in the event that American mili-
tary aid was cut back. He also said that Is rael was totally justified in rejecting pres-
sures to accept Egyptian demands in the re cent bilateral talks conducted by Secretary
of State Henry A. Kissinger because guara ntees are proving worthless as evidenced by
the present situation in Indo-China.
Peres made those remarks in an interview broadcast
by the Armed Forces Radio and published in the Army
weekly, "Bamachaneh."
HE SAID, however, that he
found it very hard to imagine
that the United States would re-
treat into isolationism because
the vacuum would be filled by
the Soviet Union.
He acknowledged that U.S.-
Israeli relations were passing
through a crisis period since the
failure of Kissinger's latest Mid-
east mission but expressed con-
fidence that the crisis was a
temporarv one.
"Should there be a drought in
our (military) purchasing rela
tions (with the U.S.). this would
oblige us to step up production
at home, to work harder, to save
every piece of equipment in our
possession and keep our ammuni-
tion boxes filled.'' the Defense
Minister declared.
BUT HE added, "I'd find it
very hard to imagine that
America has given a divorce to
the whole world, to concentrate
only on her own affairs and on
her own coasts and to live a life
of isolation. I do not believe that.
Should America decide to turn
its back on the whole world, then
the world will change b
every place vacated by th"
Americans will not remain emp-
ty. Russia will fill the -ap." Pen
said.
Peres made his remarks on the
en of the arrival in the United
States of Deputy Premier Yigal
Allon for previously delayed
talks (by the State Department i
and on a much lower level as to
the possibilities besetting Israel
in the event of a renewal of
Geneva meetings.

CRC Statement
Re: Arab Boycott
The Community Relations
Committee of the Jewish Fed-
eration of Palm Beach County
has issued the following state-
ment regarding the Arab boycott:
"We congratulate President
Ford for Ml foitinichf and cour-
OUa denunciation of the Arab
boycott against U.S. firms doing
business With Israel or employ-
ing Ameiican Jews.
"'While President Ford's strong
stand la welcome, there is also
a need (Oi Congress to pass laws
illy designed to prevent
the anli-Semiti. aspects of th;
Aiab boycott. Two major bid II*
t ies shipping and banking
having capitulated to Arab bo]
co.i regulations.
"Some individual firms may
not have the moral courage to
stand fast against such pressure,
and the U.S. government must
not only condemn but legally
forbid all discrimination. To ac-
cede to such blackmail would
affect the rights of American
citizens not only American
Jews, but all minorities.
"Our U.S. legislators must
now enact suitable legislation
and weigh sanctions against the
Arab powers by withholding U S.
aid, arms shipments, sale of
food, and the use and servicing
of American know-how and
sophisticated machinery. We can
never barter democratic prin-
ciples and a free society for
Arab dollars."

Bodies Traded for Terrorists
By YITZHAK SHARGIL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
sources reported that Egyptian
officials are using Israel's intense
desire to recover bodies of Is-
raeli soldiers massing in action in
the Yom Kippur War to force
return by Israel of Egyptian ter-
rorists
Israel was disclosed to have
returned to the Egyptians 92 im-
prisoned terrorists, though not
terrorists convicted on murder
charges, and 50 of their relatives,
in exchange for Egyptian prom-
ises to return the bodies of Is-
raeli war dead. This number does
not include 20 terrorists Israel
had agreed to free when the
bodies of the Israeli soldiers were
returned to Israel.
DURING THE negotiations
leading to the first Egyptian-Is-
raeli disengagement accord, the
Egyptians promised they would
assist in return of the bodies of
missing Israeli soldiers, ar.i Maj.
Gen. Mouhamed Gemassi. the
chief Egyptian miltary disengage-
ment negotiator, sta'ed that
Egypt would not use the Israeli
bodies for trading purposes.
But. the Israeli sources report-
ed. Egyptian behavior soon evok-
ed concern about their real inten-
tions. Ten Israeli dead were bur-
ied by their comrades at an Is-
raeli position on the Barlev Line
before the Egyptians, in their
initial thrust across the Suez
Canal, took the position.
When Israeli burial society of
ficials reached the position, they
were unable to find the bodies.
THS SAME incident occurred
at the jetty position, near the
canal's southern outlet, where Is
raeli soldiers buried five of their
comrades before the Egyptians
occupied the position.
The bodies could not be found
when Israeli search parties went
to the spot after the accord was
signed. It turned out that the
Egyptians found and removed the
bodies for use as a pressure at
a later stage.
Since then, the Egyptians have
placed difficulties in the way of
the Israeli search parties and
then barred the partie*.
By then, the Egyptians pre-
pared a list of 298 imprisoned
terrorists and demanded their re-
lease in exchange for the bodies
of the Israeli soldiers.
Israel replied that the list in-
cluded .Tien who had already been
released, some unknown to Is-
Strict Conservation
To Strengthen
Armed Forces
TEL AVIV (JTA) Military authorities have or-
dered strict economy and conservation measures bv the
armed forces to maintain Israel's defense ability in view
of the probable delays in the shipment of further military
supplies from the United States, as well as organizational
changes which the delays may necessitate and are study-
ing ways to harness Israeli industrial enterprises for de-
fense production, it was learned here.
So far, Israel's armed forces have experienced no dif-
ficulties. However, the authorities are reacting to reports
that the U.S. will suspend arms shipments and enter no
new arms deals with Israel pending completion of the re-
assessment of Middle East policy ordered by President Ford
last month.
DEFENSE MINISTER Shimon Peres has been asked by
American authorities to postpone his visit to Washington in
connection with arms purchases, that the U.S. has with-
drawn its invitation to Israeli Air Force personnel to inspect
the new F-IS jet interceptors Israel wants to buv, and that
the U.S. is delaying the delivery of "Lance" missiles or-
dered by Israel.
I Yad Vashem Chief
Says Holocaust
Brought Solidarity
NEW YORK(JTA)Katriel

the Holocaust memorial insUtu-
tion in Jerusalem, said that there
was no Jewish solidarity until
after Auschwitz. It was only after
the Holocaust that Jews consid
red themselves as one people,

ing the Holocaust Memorial Day
Observance at Yeshiva Univer-
sity
Katz, a former Israel Consul
General in New York and Am-
bassador to the Soviet Union in
1986-67, said no Jew was left un-
touched by the Holocaust since
one-third of the Jewish people
was destroyed.
HE SAID the State of Israel
has proven that Jews will not be
stepped on again and will never
again let themselves be cut off
from humanitv. Katz said that
Hiroshima and My Lai cannot be
compared to the Holocaust since
the Nazi terror was an attempt
to exterminate an entire people.
Discussing Jewish resistance
during the Holocaust. Katz said
the desire to remain alive, the
attempts to keep kosher, main
tain journals, hold bar mitzvahs
and other efforts were all forms
of passive resistance against the
Germans.
As for active resistance which
started in 194243. Katz said the
Jewish resistance fighters knew
they could not win but wanted
to kill as many Germans as pos-
sible before they died
HE NOTED that the Warshaw

Katz also noted that 20 pet

"What the Egyptian govern-
ment is demanding,'' Allon de-
clared here and in the four other
major American Jewish commun-
ities he visited, "was to achieve
by negotiations what it has fail-
ed to do in four wars. We offer-
ed the Abu Rudeis oil fields,
which constitute 50 per cent of
our oil supply, and a route from
the Gulf of Suez to the Suez Canal
itself."

"Our whole thrust in the ne-
gotiations was to be as flexible
as possible. We were willing to
take the initial step forward to-
ward a peace agreement with our
neighbors, and all we asked in
return for very tangible terri-
torial concessions was an indica-

According to Allon, Israel
made a secondary offer when it
became evident that Egypt was
not prepared to declare an end
to the state of war. This offer
'include a movement to the east
of Israeli forces, turning over
half the strategic passes to
Egyptian control and permitting
the Egyptians to have civilian
administration of the Abu Rudeis
oil fields.
"WE HAVE an early warning
system within the Gidi and Mitla
Passes," said Allon. "We suggest-
ed that the Egyptians build an
early warning system within the
other half of the passes we
would turn over to them.
"Since both countries would
then have an early warning sys-
tem, it would preclude either na-
tion from initiating a surprise of-
fensive. In fact, this system of
early warning devices could mean
an end of hostilities in the Sinai."
According to Allon. the far-
reaching proposal made by Is-
rael, via Secretary of State Kis-
singer, a proposal that called for
Egyptian control of half of Sinai,
met with a general Egyptian un-
willingness to declare a state of
non-beligerency.
"We look to both Secretary of
State Kissinger and the United
States Government as the only
'mover' in the Mideast." said Al-
lon. "We are hopeful that
through the good offices of Sec-
retary Kissinger, that negotia-
tions can be resumed, negotia-
tions that Israel did not end, but
were terminated by Egypt."
"We have faced the realization
thatless than a generation'fet-

Frank R. Lautenberg, national

"The Yom Kippur War was
more than a military conflict-
it was a spiritual battle, for we
struggled together to reaffirm
our unity as one people in the
face of those who would again

"TODAY, THE war continues
on another front." he continued.
"Now we must fight for Soviet
Jewry, which strives to build
lives in freedom, for the children
of Israel, whose educational op-
portunities have been cut back,

munities throughout the world

Above all. thus far no genuine instrument has been developed

TO A LARGE EXTENT, American Jewish leadership is com-
posed of selected people, many of them distinguished men and
women, but not brought to the helm through the democratic process.
To give the American Jew the social structure necessary to have
in fact a democratic community, he must plan a system of elections
which will go to the very grass-roots of his people. The call for tho
organic community issued some three decades ago by M. M. Kaplan
seems more plausible and more urgent today.
In the past, the Shekel voting procedure of the Zionist movement
and the early experiments in the history of the American Jewish
Congress were attempts of democratization. The six million in the
American Jewish community will be able to restructure its organiza-
tion and involve its people to the fullest in this manner and the most
representative and dynamic leadership will emerge from it.
<^fnside judaic
Insight* <> questions of Jewish
interest by Dr. Frederick Lach-
man, Executive Editor, Encyclo-
paedia Judaica.
What does Judaism say
about Abortions?
In the Bible, only accidental
abortion is discussed: e.g., caus-
ing an abortion of a fetus in the
course of a quarrel as a result of
kicking or striking a woman. A
fine was imposed on the perpe-
trator.
During the Talmudic period,
however, the Encyclopaedia Ju
daica reports, a basic Rabbinic
statement appears in the Mishnah
(Oholot 7:6) which contains the
fundamental regulations regard-
ing abortion regulations which
have been kept alive throughout
the centuries. The statement
reads as follows: "If a woman
travails to give birth and it is
feared she may die. one may
sever the fetus from her womb
and extract it. member bv mem
ber, for the mother's life has
precedence over the child's life.
But if the greater part of the
child has already emerged into
the world (from the womb),
either its head only, or its great-
er part, it may not be touched
even if it endangers the mother's
life because one may not re-
ject one life to save another."
What this passage means, is
clear: while the child is still in
the mother's womb, it is not a
person in Jewish law. and its
destruction to save the mother's
life does not mean murdering one
person ta save another; but once
the greater part of the child has
emerged from the womb and into
the world, it becomes a person in
Jewish law, and it cannot
aica
destroyed to save the mother's
life.
With the reservation contained
in the above quotation, all the
codifiers agree that an abortion
when the mother's life is in
danger, is not only permitted by
Judaism but it must be perform-
ed. Many authorities have gone
farther than this, by permitting,
e.g.. an abortion "if intended to
serve the mother's needs .
even if not vital." At the time
of the Holocaust, in the Kovno
ghetto, the Germans decreed that
every pregnant Jewish woman
shall be killed together with her
fetus. As a result, in 1942 Rabbi
Ephraim Oshry decided that an
abortion was permissible in order
to save a woman from the con-
sequences of the decree.
Many codifiers permit abortion
when the birth of the child
would cause tne mother to lose
her sanity, or If the doctors de-
clare that the child would be
born seriously deformed, or if
the pregnancy is the result of
rape. An important factor in de-
ciding whether or not an abor-
tion should be permitted is the
stage of the pregnancy: the shor-
ter the period, the stronger are
the considerations in favor of
permitting abortion.
It must be stressed, however,
that neither economic reasons
nor the fact that the child is
simply not wanted, are sufficient
for even considering an abortion
under Jewish law, the authorita-
tive EncvcloDacdia Judaica says.

14 IYAR 7:29
tfertov. s
There is i.
name of the festiv.
would indicate what
event caused this day to becon.
a festive day until this very day.
Yet, this day is a festive day
that occurs in the midst of the
seven weeks of sadness known as
"Sefirah." It is generally the only
day between the Passover and
Shavuoth holiday when marriag-
es are held.
There are some who claim that
this was a memorial to the fact
that the plague or bloodshed
that caused the demise of Kabbi
Akiba's student cither stopped on
this day or only lasted thirty
two days altogether and the
thirty-third day is thus a day of
thanksgiving that the tragedy
came to its end
Some later critics suspect that
this day might have been some
day of victory during the Bar
Kochba revolt, or that it wtl
some day of victory when Jews
asserted themselves temporarily
as independent of the Roman
Caesar
Even if these periods of victory
or independence were short lived,
the memory softened the blows
of oppression for years to come.
Because the victory' or the mo-
ment of independence was so
short lived, and also because vie
tories were rarely celebrated
among Jews as military triumphs,
the name of the festival was
couched in secrecy by neither
giving it reference to a date of
the month nor to a specific his-
torical event.
Some trace part of the mean
ing of this festival to the con-
tention that the Manna began to
descend unto the Israelites for
food in the wilderness on this
day
The Kabbalists. especially since
the 16th century, have attribut
ed an esoteric meaning for this
day woven in the tradition of
mysticism. Thev consider it to
be the day of the demise of the
great Rabbi Simeon Bar Yochai
whom the Romans were intent
upon killing but who neverthe
less lived out his life and died
a comparatively natural death
His death, a natural one. was
considered a victory over the foe.
To this day. then, there are
great celebrations in the town
of Meron. Israel, which is con
sidered to be the location of his
grave.

(New York. William Morrow. $10.95. 403 pp.)
is the description of the invasion and occupation
of Norway and Denmark, April. 1940-May. 1945.
The author is chairman of the School of Journal-
ism at N.Y.U.
The introductory paragraphs are devoted to
exploding myths about Quisling, Norwegian brav-
ery, the yellow badge of the Jews and the fable
about King Christian.
The book corrects many misconceptions and
dwells on the miraculous rescue of Danish Jews.
THOSE WHO were caught and incarcerated
not only escaped the fate of their coreligionists
of Eastern Europe and Germany, but they fared
very well in the concentration camps due to the
efforts of the Danish Christians and their govern-
ment.
Tne Norwegian Jews in the camps also re-
ceived good treatment because the Germans
classified them as Aryans, although of a lower
class.

THEY MAKE it clear they have no political

fostering a vigilante group or embarking on mili-
tary adventures. They simply want to voice an
opinion in the hope that many other Israelis
share the same views and will help influence the
Government and adopt policies along the line
they advocate.
All indications are that Israeli patience is
running low. Israelis are tired of sitting as tar-
gets for terrorists.
THERE IS no self respecting nation in the
world that would continue to endure an unceas-
ing series of wild, criminal acts launched from
the other side of its borders and the world should
not expect Israel to sit with folded hands.
A T^. JeW'*h families is the largest of the five tiny
Jewish settlements in North Carolina served by a rabbi
who drives his car 50.000 miles a year to perform hi. rabbinical
lunctions.
Rabbi Reuben Kesner, who says he believes he is the only
circu.t riding rabbi in the United States, has his headquarters in
Whiteville, N.C. He implements the Circuit Ridng Rabbi Project
initiated in1 1954 by the North Carolina Associaton of Jewish Men.
me ALSO serves Jewish families in Lumberton, which is 31
mites from Whiteville; Myrtle Beach, 60 miles south; Wallace, 68
miles away; and three families in Jacksonville.
Rabbi Kesner told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, in a mail
interview, that Wallace, which has ten Jewish families, is the only
settlement among the five without a synagogue building.
The 49-year-old bachelor rabbi said the 33 Jewish families of
Myrtle Beach, made up mostly of retired senior citizens, were his
most active congregation, full of ideas and energy which he re-
ported keep him "puffing" his way through his weekly visit.
BORN IN Worcester. Mass., and ordained at Tifereth Israel
Rabbinical Seminary of America in Brooklyn, Rabbi Kesner re-
ported that the rabbinate had been the "logical result" of his
youthful activities and young adult education, starting as a teen-
age cantor at a Worcester synagogue.
He said the late Rabbi Morris Adler, of Detroit, urged him.
to enter the rabbinate while he was studying at Wayne Uni-
versity for a social work degree.
Rabbi Adler arranged for the young student to conduct serv-
ices in the small towns around Detroit and subsequently, he
reported, he "welcomed the opportunity in 1964 to join the circuit-
riding rabbi project."
He declared that he had also been a synagogue educator,
administrator and youth director in Ohio and New York before
accepting the circuit offer.
THE AUTOMOBILE appears to have an indispensable role
in the maintenance of Jewish life in Rabbi Kesner's dispersed
congregations, apart from his own use of a car. The eight Jewish
families who built a synagogue in Whiteville are joined in Jewish
programs by five familii s living within a radius of 25 miles of
Whiteville.
One of the major events is a once-a-m^nth social gathering
for which the five families drive to Whiteville.
Temple Beth F.l in Lumberton has a membership of 27 families,
six from outlying areas. The synagonue is the pride of the Jewish
community, particularly after a social hall was added to "ac-
commodate the hustle and bustle" of Jewish life in the tiny
metropolis, he said.
THE TEMPLE Beth El sisterhood runs rummage sales and.
businessmen's luncheons and children's parties on all of the holi-
days. Sisterhood members are responsible for a weekly Oneg
Shahb.it. Temple members hold their own High Holy Day serv-
ices, as do the Mvrtle Beach Jews.
lews in the other small communities drive to whichever serw
ices are most convenient.
In Wallace. Rabbi Kesner hold* services in the homes of
the ten Jewish families, since there is no synagogue. Wallace
Jews rent the American Legion Hall far their seders and Hadassah
and Israel programs, he reported
WHEN ONE congregation has phnned a special program
which would be beneficial for all of the Jewish children in the
circuit area, such as a children's model seder. Kahbi Kesner loads
up his car with as many children as it can safely hold and drives
them to the site of the model seder. Some paresis also provide
car transportation to children for such events, he declared.
HE REPORTED that when a Bar or Bat Mitzvah takes
placet, "almost the entire circuit rejoices together." and most of
the circuit Jews "turn out for a Bris and a Pidyan Haben and
weddings and confirmations and funerals and unwilings."
Re said he was the sole teacher for all the Jewish children
from first grade to high school graduation age. He m?ets with each
child individually once a week. A couple of communities have
parents who have volunteered to conduct additional Jewish studies
classes on Sundays, but these have not been too successful, he
said.
