double that achieved in the

With $925,000 received in pledges at the
time of the meeting, Dr. Rosenberg projects
that the Federation campaign total will reach
more than $1 million. The Federation's Wom-
en's Division is expected to end its current
fund drive with some $225,000, he added.
"This is the time for all of us to act
courageously and take advantage of the
growth in our community to develop more
fully the monies which can be raised on be-
half of Jewish life locally and abroad," Dr.
Rosenberg declared.

Rabbi Mordechai Kirschblum, associate director of the
Jewish Agency's Immigration Department who recently re-

Executive that he had learned of the Satmer approaches
from Austrian Interior Minister Otto Roesch.

in Viena were aiding Soviet

M nt a joint letter to President
Ford May lfi warning that thev
expected the administration to
submit a foreign aid request to
Congress that "will be respon-
se to Israel's urgent military
and eco"orpi'- needs "
The letter was strongly sup-
ported by the Israeli govern-
ment s official lobby, the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committtee. which helped se-
cure the additional signatures.
The main significance of the
document was direct show of
political strength by pro-Israeli
forces en Capitol Hill. They
seem determined to convince
the Ford administration that
they have the votes to ensure
that U.S. policy is not to Israel's
There has been concern
among Israeli supporters in the
last two months over signs that
idem Ford and Seci etary of
State Kissinger hold Isrw
iponsibta for the collapse of
Kissinger's efforts to brim?
about an Egyptian-Israeli accord
in March.
While the suspension of the
military supplies to Israel al-
ready contracted for. the ad-
ministration has held up new
commitments until after the
policy review ends. The Israelis
have interpreted the suspension
as a way of trying to pressure
them ;o make concessions to
the Egyptians. The administra-
tion denies this.
While the suspension of the
second-stage negotiations is re-
grettable, the history of the
Arab-Israeli conflict demon-
strates that any Israeli with-
drawal must be accompanied
by meaningful steps toward
peace by its Arab neighbors,"-

The security of the Jewish peopfe, the future of the
existence of the Jewish people, depends upon an Israel that
is safe, alive, developing. If you believe that, then you have
solved all problems, no matter how tragic they are. If you
don't, then the blood that was shed for keeping Israel alive
was not worthwhile. When three million people in Israel are
no better than six million that are gone, it's not worthwhile.
You must know that with the defense of Israel you are
defending not only the Jews there; you are securing the
future existence of the entire Jewish people.

Friday. June (
King Khaleda Turnabout
On its face, the King Khaled statement that Saudi
Arabia is prepared to 'accept*' the existence of Israel
is a stunner.
King Faisal, his brother who was assassinated last
March, would never have made such a statement.
All" Khaied demands of Israel is that she withdraw
to her pre-196" borders. Particularly for Saudi Arabia,
this seems "reasonable" enough.
The trouble is that Khaled is rather vague by what
he means when he uses the word "accept."
One thing, however, it does mean is that the
monarch is NOT prepared to open normal diplomatic
relations with Israel. Under these circumstances, we're
not quite sure what the Saudi Arabian turnabout can
contribute to peace in the long run.
A Brilliant Diplomatic Ploy
As we op:r.e in a Front Page story this week. Khaled
seems more realistic than Faisal ever did. But more
likely at issue is his fear of the growing strength of the
Soviet Union in the Middle East.
"Accepting" Israel on the eve of the Ford-Sadat
talks is a brilliant diplomatic ploy. It gives further im-
petus to President Ford, in his reassessment of U.S. for-
eign policv in the Middle East to give the palm to the
Arabs. *
Jt encpura^es Fovl to apply.more, bargaining pres-
sure on Israel than ever.
So that what Khaled has done is to extend an olive
branch seemingly unlike Yasir Arafat's olive branch
used as a shroud for a gun.
The danger in all this is that President Ford and
Secretary of State Kissinger will interpret it as a big
But so long as the Saudis reject the notion of nor-
mal diplomatic relations, what can "acceptance" mean?
If fact, it was this very same deal offered by the Egyp-
tians that Israel rejected on Kissinger's last shuttle
train to peace.
A Vagary and an Abstraction
The resolution signed by 75 U.S. Senators demand-
ing that President Ford reaffirm this nation's ties to
Israel should, we hope, be reason enough for President
Ford at Salzburg not to take King Khaled's offer too
seriously and not to repeat the Ford-Kissinger as-
sertion that Israel is the culprit in refusing a "good
deal" in the Middle East.
Until the Arabs are willing to normalize relations
with Israel, acceptance" of Israel is still a vagary and
an abstraction.
American Mizraehi Women
Today. .American Mizraehi Women are organized
into more than 350 chapters in 37 states and the Dis-
trict of Columbia.
Composed of career and professional women, house-
wives and community leaders of all ages, Mizraehi main-
tains a network of schools, children's villages, commu-
nity centers, settlement houses and other child-care and
social welfare institutions in Israel.
On Sunday, May 25, South Florida chapters of the
organization joined Mizraehi across the nation in a
Youth Aliya rally as a prologue to Mizraehi Women's
50th jubilee year.
American Mizraehi Women is the authorized Youth
Aliya agency of Israel since 1934 and has helped to
rescue, rehabilitate and restore the youngest victims of
hardship, terror and persecution.
Mizrachis latest efforts are directed toward the

U.S. Must Draw Harsh Lessoi
Volume 1
Friday. June 6, 1975

Los Angeles Times Syndicate
For an America which suffer-
ed from a number of severe il-
lusions, all of which contributed
to the setback in Southeast
Asia, there are some harsh les-
sons to be drawn.
There was the illusion
that America is a map-keeper,
with the function of keeping the
world map stable. But world
maps change and will continue
to change. What was once Sai-
gon is now Ho Chi Minn City,
and is likely to stay that way for
a long time. When a map chang-

it isn't the end of history
There was the illusion
that history can somehow be
tricked by a show of arms, and
that if it doesn't work there is
always the hope of using a 'po-
litical settlement.'' Conceivably
there might have been such a
settlement between the two
Vietnams if the United States
But once it did the political
had not intervened with arms,
route was shut off.
THE REASON is clear
enough. Because communism is
a historical world movement, it
has patience and continuity, and
can outwait the national democ-
racies, which must get quick
and visible results.
Tor the Communists the two
basic tacticsfignting and ne-
gotiatingare pan of the same
continuing spectrum. Both are
temporary way stations on the
road to final power.
ONCE THE United States in-
tervened it became a matter of
high Communist policy to carry
the war on to a triumphant con-
clusion. The insistence of un-
conditional surrender at the

There was the illusion
that a Communist Southeast
Asia would spell a victory for
either China or Russia Actually
Cambodia's Khmer Rouge seems
totally in China's sphere, while
Vietnam seems to be moving
strongly toward Russia, with
some hope of becoming an
Asian power of its own.
The Russians blundered on
C^nbodia. and the Chinese on

that a clever foreign policy
could either overcome or con-

The blunders of getting Into

Dwight Eisenhower, John Ken-

were not of Kissinger's making.
But once they had been made

adequate to undo them.

DULZIN TOLD the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that Eban's

a gift he gave to (Egyptian

Dulzin, who just returned
from a World Jewish Congress
meeting in London, said the
Eban interview presented "an
informational problem" for Is-
rael abroad.
Zarmi noted that the Labor
Party Central Committee had
passed a resolution endorsing
the government's position in the
Kissinger talks which placed
full responsibility on Egypt for
their collapse.
HE SAID that if Eban had
reservations about the govern-
ment's position he should have
expressed his views within the
party's forums.
Eban told Mariv that he had
always opposed attempts for an
interim settlement with Egypt
because he felt that the dispo-
sition of such vital strategic as-
sets as the Mitle and Gidi
Passes and the Abu Rodeis oil
fields in Sinai should be nego-
tiated only within the context
of an overall peace settlement.
But once the government had
decided to go along with Kis-

it should have accepted the ac-
cord proposed by Kissinger
rather than foil the talks and

said in the interview. "The (Is-

could not agree to. and thus it
was not possible at the end of
the negotiations to reach an
agreement," Eban was quoted as
The agreement may have

ent government's diplomatic
record, which he termed stag-

government in which he had

He said the latter's perform-
ance between November, 1973
and May, 1974, during which
time cease-fire agreements and
disengagement accords were
concluded with Egypt and Syria
ending the Yom Kippur War,
was a "golden period" in Israeli
diplomacy, replete with agree-
ments and political movement.
Eban warned the government
that it was mistakenly playing

realized that his remarks would
be seen in the broad context of

adopted the Nazi propaganda

zism as demonstrated by the ne-
farious acts of the Palestinian
murderers. **
Gefen also had harsh words
to say about the nationally syn-
dicated columnists, Rowland
Evans and Robert Novak, who
charged last month that the JTA
and the world Jewish press was
engaged in what amounted to a
conspiracy to defame Ghorbal.
"Evans' and Novak's charges
are part of Arab propaganda." |
Gefen said. "There is no doubt
in my mind that they distorted
the facts deliberately. Their at-
tack .on JTA put them in Una
with all those elements, diverse
as can be, held together by their
hatred of Jews under the guise
of anti-Zionism."
The two men reportedly hand-
ed to the Swiss authorities a

by the Geneva investigating

a grave matter.
HE OBSERVED that during
his tenure as Foreign Minister,
relations had been such that
when America sought to sell
arms to Jordan it first sought
Israel's approval and under-
In contrast, he said, the U.S.

Eban said that similar to the
arms deal with Jordan, the
meeting between President Ford
and President Anwar Sadat

all accounts, by prior U.S.-ls-
raeli consultations.
that immediately after the
breakdown of the Kissinger
talks, Eban expressed views
quite opposite to those he ad-
vanced in the Maariv interview.
At that time, he firmly blamed
Egypt for the collapse of the
negotiations and said the Israeli
government had no option but
to reject the final Egyptian pro-
posals transmitted by Kissinger.
Asked how he could logically .
have accepted the government's
request that he travel to the
U.S. and Europe to "explain" a
policy that he opposed, Eban
"I told those who made the;
request that I would not say
things I didn't believe in ... I i
argued that in matters of na-1
tional security of Israel thel
final sovereign decision must
rest with the Israel government.
I also stressed that the hoped-
for interim agreement would not
have been so important as to
merit the melancholy and anger
which its non-attainment occa-
sioned. Even had it been attain*
ed, the resumption of Geneva
would have soon followed."
EBAN SAID he had stressed
that argument at his meeting
with Kissinger and had urged
the Secretary to look to the
months ahead, not the weeks
that had passed.
He said he also warned that
any rift or semblance of a rift
between Israel and the U.S.
would encourage Arab intransi-
gence and adventurism. He said
the government apparently felt
that it was worth calling on his
services even though he did not
entirely endorse its position.
Eban refused to be drawn by
Maariv into commenting on his
personal political ambitions. The
time was not ripe and the lead-
ership is not presently up for
contest, he said.
But observers here neverthe-
less viewed the tone and content
of his remarks to Maariv as a
direct challenge to "^ Premier

Labor Party leadership.

AND THERE is more, so
much more in this newest and

Edens, where I love to come
when the human machine wears
thin in the fatigue of its exile
from original grace.
The Garden is lush. It is filled
with dogwood, chestnut, maple,
elm, pine, willow, birch, a riot
of green and dark brown and
silver bark, and flowering leaves
that are pink and white and
orange and yellow and, in fact,
every conceivable color.
I walk in the woods, imagin-
ing that precisely here, where
I stand, Rachmaninoff must
have stood, or Whitman, or the
philosopher John> Dewey, who
also lived and worked in these
woods among the squirrels and
raccoons and the exquisitely de-
signed pheasant in their pano-

grey weather and light of
Lloyd Harbour's wooded walks,
Miami's sun-scorched concrete
and pathetic dots of burned
grass lawns struggling to sur-
vive in the heat of a human hell
made more hellish by human
greed seems a nightmare to tell
me that though this Eden, un-
like my past Edens. is real, and
I am happily no longer a strang-
er to it. still I must leave it,
and very soon now.
But it is I who do the leav-
ing. I am not evicted from it.
I can return.
The walk in the woods must
end now, at least for the mo-
ment. The human machine
winds up again.

Executive Editor,
Encyclopaedia Judaica
What does "Aliyah" mean?
Aliyah. the Hebrew word for
"ascent" means (1) the coming
of Jews to the Land of Israel
as "olim" for permanent resi-
dence; (2) the Jews coming
from a particular country or
region, or during a particular
period, for this purpose, e.g.,
the Polish aliyah, the First
I According to the- autho/ia-
pve Encyclopaedia Judaica.
however, Aliyah means more
than immigration: it is a major
ideal of Zionism and the pri-
mary means for its realization.
It implies personal participation
in the rebuilding of the Jew-
ish homeland and the elevation
of the individual to a higher
plane of self-fulfillment as a
member of the renascent na-
tion. In the earlier years the
majority of the olim were
inspired by idealistic motives
and even during the period of
mass aliyah. when the main
driving force was persecution
and distress, many were moti-
vated by messianic yearnings
and there was always a leaven-
ing of idealists.
Aliyah has been an almost
uninterrupted process ever
since the crushing of Jewish
resistance by the Romans, but.
says the Encyclopaedia Judaica.
the term has been used parti-
cularly in connection with the
modern Jewish return to the
Land of Israel. Five major

Disraeli said, "Life is too
short to be little."
There is so very little time.
We are like stones rolling down-
hill. Each man's life moves
faster as it goes, gathering mo-
mentum until it comes to rest
in a dead stop! The older we
get the less there is of life
ahead and the faster what la
left goes.
An hour seems a long, long
time to a child of six, especial-
ly if he is waiting for some-
thing. At 60, that hour passes
all too quickly.
As we grow older, we ought
to grow bigger in mind and
soul. Life is too short to be
small, to be little.

At times we all feel like tak-
ing the advice of the State
Mental Hygiene Department in
Richmond, Va.. which has a red-
and-white mat in front of its
offices with instructions that
read: "An easy way to rid
yourself of temporary frustra-
tion and hostilities. Place your
feet herestomp quickly in an
up-and-down motion. If symp-
toms persist, it would be advis-
able to consult a psychiatrist."
Instead of stomping on a mat
wouldn't it be more advisatfle
to look within one's self and
ask "How much am I living?
How much am I really bringing
out of myself? What does My
life mean to me? What are my
goals, my dreams, my aspira-
tions? And if I reach them will
it be enough .. ? What is there
beyond me? What is the mean-
ing of my life to my family?"
Recently, one young girl
wrote concerning her father,
"A great man died today. He
wasn't a world leader, famous
doctor, or war hero, but he was
a great man. He was my father.
"He didn't get his picture in
the paper for heading up things.
I guess you might say he was a
person who never cared for
credit or honors. He did corny
things such as paying his bills
on time, going to worship on the
Sabbath, and holding an office
tn the P.T.A. He helped his
children with their homework
and drove his wife to the shop-
ping center to buy groceries on
Thursday night. He got his
kicks hauling his teenagers and
theic friends to and from foot-
ball games. He enjoyed simple
things a picnic in the park,
music, mowing the grass and
running with the dog.
"Tonight is the first nigh! of
my life without him. I don't
know what to do with myself
so I am writing this. I didn't
always show him the proper re-
spect. But I was able to let him
know how much I loved him.
He died with a smile on his
face. He knew he was a success
as a husband and a father, a
brother, a son, and a friend
I wonder how many of our
children would write that about
us! What would your family
say? What is the meaning of
your life to your family?
Ask yourself What do you
communicate to them? Love?
Hostility? Impatience? Respect?
Or the lack of respect?
Ask yourself: "Am I only
there to perform customary
functions? To support the
household? To prepare the
meals and keep the house?
What meaning does my bfe
have for mj family? What
meaning might ft have if I only
let it? What love is there in my
home? Or is my love as cold
as my heart?"

things to change.

Theodor Herzl: A Man
Who Dared To Dream
Temple Israel of Greater Miami
Theodor Herzl is venerated
by Jews the world over as the
father of modern Jewish nation-
hood Each year thousands of
visitors to Israel climb up to
Mt. Herzl and stand by Herzl's
tomb, from which can be seen
all that several generations of
Israelis have accomplished in
that land for which Herzl
dedicated the best years of his*
Amos Eton, the brilliant Is-
! ali.journalist and, author, re-
cently wrote a biography of this
modern Jewish hero.
How strange it is that we
should honor Herzl so. By tem-
perament he was an aristocrat,
but yet he became a populist
rouser of the masses.
By conviction he was a con-
servative, yet he initiated the
greatest Jewish heresy of the
19th century. He was con-
temptuous of democracy, yet he
constructed a Jewish parlia-
He wus a profoundly pesimis-
tic man. yet he helped to mold
Eastern European Israeli pio-
neers into a movement of in-
curable optimists, fired by a
messianic dream of a new world.
Herzl was all of these things.
And. he was more. Eton, per-
haps for the first time, gives us
a glimpse of a sick and troubled
man who had a dream. His weak-
nesses make his achievements
that much greater. Almost sin-
glehandedly he built and sus-
tained a movement which, with-
in half century, through a
modern migration of outcasts
and idealists, led to the estab-
lishment of the modern state of
Herzl did not invent Zionism.
Others had done that before
him. What he did. however, was
to forge the instruments that
would put Zionism into practice,
for. as Herzl said, politics is the
development of power. From
nothing he created first an illu-
sion of that power, and then the
power itself later made it pos-
sible for the return of the Jews
to Palestine.
To understand Herzl one must
understand the age in which he
lived. It not easy today to con-
vey a correct impression of what
it really meant to be a Jew in
the 19th century.
In our own days the Nazi
holocaust has driven moat Jaw*

Jews were the first in "fast foods" with matzos.
THE BIBLE tells us of their origin. Pharoah had
given the Israelites a promise that they might leave,
bat the Israelites then as today didn't take much
stock on Egypt's promises.
They knew that if they didn't get out at once, the
Egyptians would change their minds, the United Na-
tions would back them up and their cause was hope-
less. If they stopped to make bread, they were lost.
So they made matzo which required little baking.

to say it would be more important. We think the

Israel, India Relations
Are Not Very Good at All
RUMBS OF comfort are hard to find for the
14,000 Jews of India now that Prune Min-
ister Indira Gandhi has granted fuU diplomatic
status to Yasir Arafafs Palestine Liberation
The diminutive size of the Jewish commu-
nity of India gives that minority group no hope
at all for diluting the new courtship of India
by the PLO. Indeed, India's press, inclined to
liberalism because of the nation's long and
galling fight to shake free of British domina-
tion, has generally praised the alliance.
AND ARABS everywhere are taking heart
from the new partnership, marking the first
time a non-Arab and non-Communist govern-
mnt has granted diplomatic recognition to Ara-
fat's band of marauders.
Only when India went out of her way to bar
Israel from participating in a top-flight inter-
national table tennis tournament did the press
show annoyance about deterioration in India's
relations with Israel.
For India's government to stoop so low as
to politicize a sports event proved too much
for the Hindustan Standard of Calcutta: "Why
slam the door on Israel?" the editor asked,
acutely aware of the fact that New Delhi con-
tinued to maintain trade relations with Israel.
AMERICA'S NEW ambassador to India, the
unpredictable William B. Saxbe, pointedly ex-
pressed his astonishment at Prime Minister
Gandhi's shocking grant of recognition to Ara-
fat. The people of India have "no better friend
in the world than the Jewish community in the
United States," Ambassador Saxbe said. "I
know this for a fact. But this romance with
the PLO is going to turn off a lot of them."
Mr. Saxbe, an old friend of Mrs. Gandhi,
has characterized relationships between Wash-
ington and New Delhi as a grudging mutual
respect at best.
Leaving India recently before Mr. Saxbe
took over, Pat Moynihan touched on yet an-
other aspect of India's new position in a world
of bristling rivalries and heavy armaments:
Having just last year become the sixth mem-
ber of the circle of nations boasting nuclear
power, India is in stronger s'ance than many
NUCLEAR ENERGY, then, is expected to
become India's paramount strength. Monozite
sand, source of the ore of thorium, is one of
the huge nation's richest resources. Now at
center stage because it is radioactive, thorium
is extremely valuable to India as the nations
of the world gamble for highest stakes in the
race to advance the nuclear reactor process.
Although Canada aod Brazil both are rich in
Thorium, India boasts 60 percent of the world's
supply. And at a time when fissionable mate-
rial is of primary importance, thorium-rich
India can play rough games in the planet's
race to what may prove total destruction.

Some Jewish Sources,
Philosophy and Mitzvot
I lONAI.D J. MOORE, a Jesuit, undertook to
explore the religious thought of Martin
Buber and its significance for modern religious
institutions in "Martin Buber: Prophet of Re-
ligious Secularism" (Philadelphia, Jewish Pub-
lication Society. $6.00, 284 pages).
Buber is known by most as a devotee of
Hasidism, the philosophy of I and Thou, and
the meaning of Judaism. The central theme H
Buber's thought is the essential oneness of
the Thou spoken between man and man and
the Thou spoken between man and-God. Jesuit
Moore was a pupil of Maurice Friedman, the
outstanding expositor of Buber's writings.
FRIEDMAN, in the foreword, advances two
reasons for the importance of the book. First,
it represents an advance in Jewish-Christian
ecumenical dialogue with originally initiated
Buber's revolutionary influence on Christian
thought which Christianized his philosophy in
the process by bavin* Jesus become the Thou
instead of the non-anthromorphic God of Ju-
Second. Moore, instead of appropriating
Buber for Christianity, reversed the former
process of "baptizing" Buber and lets his
Christianity be modified by Buber-----
"QUMRAN STUDIES," by Chaim Rabin of
the Hebrew University, (New York, Schocken
Books, $3.95, 151 pages) is a series of essays
delivered in England. The thread that holds
them together is the attempt to test an alter-
native ro the theory that the Dead Sea Scrolls
emanate from the Essene community.
The author connects the Scrolls with Pha-
riseeism and, in the course of doing so. he
distinguishes between Phariseeism and Rab-
binic Judaism as represented by Tannaitic lit-
Rabin's thesis also embraces the theory that
the Qumran community continued the "ha-
burah" of the first century B.C.E. He also dis-
cusses Islam and the Qumran sect. The book
is scholarly and important. .
"THE MITZVOT: The Commandments and
their Rationale." by Abraham Chill (New York,
Bloch Publishing Co.. n.p., 508 pages) is a
necessary addition for every Jewish home.
Rabbi Chill has taken the mitzvot contained in
the Pentateuch and supplied digests of the
leading commentaries and sources in which
they are discussed.
