Jewish Federation's Leadership
Development retreat set for
July 11-13.
The weekend, to be held at
the Sheraton Inn on Singer Is-
land, will feature Professor Fred
Pollak. The comprehensive pro-
gram was launched in 1974-75,
with Detra Kay and Bob Levy
as chairpersons of the group.
In the meetings throughout
the year, said Mrs. Kay, "mem-
bers have gained greater insight
into some of the areas of Jew-
ish concern with which the or-
ganized Jewish community must
become involved if it is to serve
as a focal point.
"We hope that the Young
Leadership program will con-
tinue to be an integral part of
the work of the Federation.
There are few more important
goals than insuring that the
local Jewish community will
have continued leadership to
sustain and support it," she
Among the topics covered
during the monthly sessions
were: "The Challenge of
Leadership." "American Jewry
and the State of Israel," "Organ-
ization of the American Jewish
Community," "Who is a Jew?
Why Jewish?" "Current Issues
and Concerns of the American

HIAS To Resettle
Vietnam Refugees
HIAS. the worldwide Jewish
migration agency, has been ask-
jed by the U.S. State department
* to participate in the resettle-
ment of Vietnamese refugees,
according to Gaynor I. Jacob-
son, executive vice president of
the agency.
HIAS will seek the coopera-
tion of local Jewish communi-
ties throughout the country in
accepting their fair share of
10,000 of the 130.000-150.000
Vietnamese who are in. or en-
route to the United States.
Representatives from large
and medium-sized Jewish com-
munities attended a meeting in
New York called by HIAS and
held at the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds
recently to discuss the refugee
The consensus was that the
Jewish community would react
positively to mobilizing partici-
pation in the resettlement of at
least 10.000 Buddhist Vietna-
mese refugees.
Resettlement efforts by vol-
untary agencies will be financed
primarily by the Federal Gov-
eminent, with the expected pas-
sage of an appropriations bill
now before Congress.
Eighteen Jewish communities
have already accepted Cam-
bodian refugees under HIAS'
aegis, including New York City,
Dallas, Miami, Denver, Los
Angeles, Kansas City, Boston.
Houston. New Orleans, Phila-
delphia. St. Louis. New Haven
and Albany. Commitments for
resettlement of Vietnamese ref-
ugees are expected within a
short time.
Vietnamese refugees now In
this country are housed in
temporary quarters in Camp
Pendleton, Calif.; Fort Chaffe.
Ark., and Eglin Air Force Base.
HIAS representatives have al-
ready begun working with refu-
gees at two of these staging
HIAS is a beneficiary of the
United Jewish Appeal and Jew-
ish Federations and Welfare
Funds throughout the nation.
During 1974, HIAS resettled
3.490 Soviet Jews in 88 com-
munities in the United States.

Christian, Jewish Students
Study Each Other's Beliefs
Hillel directors and Jewish col-
lege students are talking to their
Christian peers on American
college campuses, studying and
exploring the sources of each
other's religious beliefs and
traditions in classes, seminars,
lectures, and cooperative proj-
ects, according to a report in
"Campus," a newsletter issued
bv the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foun-
Th.e survey said that the
campus violence of the 1960s,
the plight of the world's starv-
ing millions and the economic
turmoil of this new decade "are
partly responsible for this turn
towards reason."
The ic'ort asserted that a
series of programs on the Holo-
caust sDonsored by Hillel "has
moved the Christian community
to a study of the Nazi terror
and to a reexamination of their
ideas on Israel."
Hundreds of course offerings
at Hillel's free Jewish univer-
sities "on scores" of campuses
attract Christian students while

Kabbalah, Hassidic story-tell-
ing, a look at Catholic mysti-
cism and Yoga exercises.
At a luncheon program. Ecu-

Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, Christian students
"seem impressed by Jewish
perceptions and values that are
rich, complex, profound and add
to their knowledge and under-
standing by breaking down
their stereotypes of Judaism
and Jewish people," according
to the Hillel Directors.
The reverse is true for the
Jewish students who see that
their traditions "have more
similarities than differences

Israel Must
Double Her
Pinhas Sapir, chairman ofj
the Jewish Agency Execu-
tive, said here that Israel
would have to have a Jew-
ish population of at least
six-million, before it could
have peace and security.
The present population is
three million, and at the
present rate of natural in-
crease it will take 25 years
to double it, which means
that every effort must be
made to increase aliya, Sa- j
pir said in the course of his ]
keynote address opening the:
fourth annual Assembly of
the Jewish Agency here.
THE OPENING session was
attended by President Ephraim
Katzir of Israel, Jerusalem's
Mayor Teddy Kollek, Max
Fisher of Detroit, chairman of
the Jewish Agency Board of
Governors, and Ezra Shapiro, I
world chairman of Keren Have-,
The Assembly drew morel
than 300 Jewish leaders from all
over the world to grapple with
such problems as the decline in
aliya, immigrant absorption,
Jewish education in the dias-
pora, the Arab boycott and the
social and economic gap in Is-
rael's society.
Most important, the Agency
will have to approve the Jew-
ish Agency's $508 million budg-
et for the next fiscal year
which is based on an estimate!
of 45.000 new immigrants arriv-
ing in the country.
THAT NUMBER may not be
achieved. Sapir noted in his ad-
dress that only 32.000 immi-
grants came to Israel in 1974
compared to S5.000 in 1973.
He said that the 7,400 "olim" j
who arrived during the first five !
months of 1975 comprised!
"about half of what it was in
the same period last year."
Sapir attributed the sharp de-
cline in immigration in part to
the harassment and persecution,
of Jews in the Soviet Union who j
seek exit visas.
He said he wanted to assure
them that the campaign for1
their freedom was continuing
in Israel and in Jewish com-1
munities throughout the world.
He praised the contributions of
the 100,000 Soviet Jews already
in Israel.
SAPIR SAID that while the
immigrant housing problem was
practically solved, there were
still many problems ahead, not-
ably in the area of social ab-
He told the delegates that they
must devote special attention to
organizing aliya as special proj-
ects of their home communities
rather than as an initiative from
Sapir spoke at length about
the unique contribution of spe-
cial funds, such as the Israel
education fund for the improve-
ment of the quality of life in Is-
rael and urged the delegates to
help meet Israel's educational
needs, especially pre-kinder
garten, high school and neigh-
borhood centers.
The Jewish Agency chairman
had warm praise for the settle-
ment projects accomplished by
the Agency's settlement depart-
ment which he described as
"one of the shining jewels In

The article equates Jewish elitism with money and

neither of these, but in its traditional and tenacious
identification with an elite history of intellectual and
philosophical leadership going back thousands of years.

Some Encouraging Sijnis
Those who expected an agreement between Israel
and Egypt to follow immediately Premier Yitzhak Rabin's
visit to Washington are of course disappointed. The fact
still remains that until Egypt demonstrates she is will-
ing to make concessions, as Israel is. no agreement can
be reached.
But the Rabin meetings with President Ford and
Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger did result in a
public relaxation of the tension that had built up be-
tween Israel and the United States since Kissinger's
"shuttle diplomacy" broke down last March.
There was an exchange of views and an apparent
understanding of each other's position. As Rabin said
upon his return to Israel: "I would not want to say that
all I said was accepted by the Americans, but at the
same time not everything said by the Americans was
accepted by me."
This is as it should be.
* *
Pressure Would Be Fatal
Added to this were Kissinger's warm words at a
dinner for Rabin in which he called differences between
Israel and the United States "merely familv quarrels."
This does not mean that the situation is still not
tense. The Ford Administration still wants verv badly
to reach an agreement between Israel and Egypt. But
perhaps this new publicly-expressed understanding
backed by the strong support for Israel in Congress'
will cause the Administration to think twice before
attempting to pressure Israel into taking steps the Jew-
ish State feels would endanger her security.
For in the end. Rabin is after all right. No one
not even the United States, can be relied on bv Israei
to protect her own security. Onlv Israel can do that for

6Ein Brera' There's No Choice For Israelis
A Total Cash Mobilization Drive is underway
in the Palm Beach Jewish Community. The
etfort to accelerate payment of pledges to
the Jewish Federation's 1975 Combined Jew-
ish Appeal Israel Emergency Fund will
benefit people most in need of this help. One
of these people is Walter K.
Walter K. is the personnel manager of a
small factory near Tel Aviv. His wife Sara di-
rects a small day care center for preschool chil-
dren of working mothers. Walter's' monthly gross
nay is IL 3.200, of which he takes home IL 1.800
after deductions for income tax, war loans, so-
cial security, health insurance.
Sara earns IL 1,400 per month, of which she
takes home IL 750. Together, they bring home
n. 2,550 per month. (Six Israeli pounds equals
one U.S. dollar).
THEY HAVE two children; Tamar is 16 and
rots to high school; Uri is 12 and still in elemen-
tary school.
The family lives in a two-bedroom apartment
in a six-family condominium. The parents have
one bedroom, Tamar has the second bedroom,
and Uri sleeps in the livingroom. which has been
fitted out with some ingenious cushion-covered
chests, which serve also as places to sit. The
chests are used to keep Uri's miscellaneous
things, and he shares the clothes closet with his
WALTER CONSIDERS himself middle-middle
class. He thinks things are rather difficult these
days, but he considers himself luckier than
many people he knows, and he is a little envious
of some friends who have extra sources of in-
come The K's salaries are their only source of
Here's how they manage almost:
Apainst their total net income of IL 2,550
per month, they have monthly expenditures
averaging IL 2.P80, which leaves a deficit of IL
230. The monthly expenditures break down as
Apartment ^ 73q
(380 mortgage and interest; 230 house
charges; 120 utilities)
(230 repayment of loan; 170 net car
"expenses after deducting what Walter's*
company pays)
(life insurance; fire and theft on the
Dental work
(paying off two bills over a period of
ten months)
(the K's pay full tuition for Tamar's
high school)
(includes buses, cigarettes, newspa-
pers, entertainment)
Food and Household 1,100
(450 for meat, fish, poultry; 300 for
fruit and vegetables; 350 other food
and household items
TOTAL il 2,880
THE K.'t are spending IL 1,780 60 per-
cent of their net income before they begin to
eat. And eating includes beef only twice a week,
because beef is so expensive. And it doesn't in-
clude eating out in restaurants, because the
cheapest meal for the four of them would be
over IL 100.
What about the deficit of IL 230 a month?
The way Walter reckons it, he just has to hold
out for a while. Soon the dental bill will be paid
In two years, the car will be paid off. but
then he will have to start paying tuition for Uri
who will then be entering high school. Tamar will
then be in the Army, and the K.'s will have a
breathing spell for two years, until Tamar finishes
her Army service and enters university.
Then one bad year when Tamar will be in
college and Uri still in high school. But then Uri
goes to the Army, and the K.'s breathe again
BUT HOW do vou make ends, meet now, to-
day, when the deficit is there?
Walter looks rather vague. "You never know,"
he says. "Maybe I'll get a bonus. Maybe Sara will
get a bonus. We'll borrow ."
What about clothes, holidays?
"What about clothes and holidays? It's a
warm climate, so you need less clothes. Holidays?
We live near the beach, and we have friends in
AKE THE KL's really so calm about their fi-
nancial situation? The answer is NO. They worry
about "surprises" an illness that won't be
completely covered by their health insurance, an
accident to the car, something breaking down in
the apartment or some major repair in the build-
ing, in which they would have to share. They're
worried about prices, and additional taxes.
Yes. the K.'s Worry. But Walter explains that
it is the daily kind of worry. In the long run. he
says, we'll make out. It's like Israel's situation, he
says: "Ein brera" no choice.
THE PALM BEACH Jewish community recog-
nizes the concerns of families like the K.'s. And,
we are working to meet their needs, to allay the
fears brought by their insecure financial situation
through the Palm Beach County Jewish Federa-
tion's Combined Jewish Appeal Israel Emergen-
cy Fund.
The CJA-IEF provides a wide range of badly-
needed humanitarian programs for the Jewish
people in Israel, in Palm Beach County and
throughout the world.
But our campaign pledges are not enough to
help the K.'s. They need cash immediately. Cash
is their lifeline. Please pay your pledge.

Soviets Release
Jewish Prisoners
NEW YORK (JTA) Three Soviet Jewish pris-
oners of conscience, two of them sentenced in the sec-
ond Leningrad trial, have been released on completion
of their five-year prison terms, the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry has reported.
The two Jews, sentenced in May, 1971, at the sec-
ond Leningrad trials, both on charges of anti-Soviet
slander, are Lassal Kaminsky and Lev Yagman. The
third Jew is David Chernoglaz, who was sentenced in
June, 1971, at the Kishinev trial on charges of anti-
Soviet agitation and propaganda.
The releases came on the fifth anniversary of the
1970 mass arrests which led to the Leningrad trials of
1970 and 1971. The anniversary was marked by plans
for hunger strikes by Jews throughout the Soviet Union.
JNF Thinning Out Trees
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Jewish National
Fund, traditionally a tree-planting organization, expects
to make IL 8.9 million this year by thinning forests,
rather than filling them.
The dead wood will partly go to JNF saw mills,
partly to pulp processing factories, and the remainder
to agriculture for use as support posts, primarily in
banana fields.
The 60,000 tons of thinned Wood is the output of
some 40,000 dunams of forest thinning.
The thinning must be undertaken for the purpose
of clearing old tree plots for new regeneration, increas-
ed growth yield of remaining trees and the blazing of
AeW forest roads built for purposes of getting the newly
cut wood from the forests.

the UN Partition Plan envision-

territory allocated for an Arab
state was seized by Transjordan
and Egypt in 1947. They also
point out that there are 18 in-
dependent Arab states already

that Palestinian Arabs consti-
tute two-thirds of the popula-
tion of Jordan and hold key
positions in its government.
"Of course we are a plural-

Foreign Minister Abba Eban
has stated. "There is a Moslem

Bicentennial Books Reveal
Jews' Role in U.S. History
The American Jewish com-
munity's participation in the
founding and formation of the
United States is the subject of
numerous publications being is-
sued in connection with this
country's forthcoming Bicen-
tennial celebration.
A survey by the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency on publishing
activities by Jewish and non-
Jewish organizations, the U.S.
Bicentennial Commission itself,
and other sources has revealed
that many new books and up-
dated editions of older material
are, or shortly will be, available
on American Jewish life over
the past two centuries.
The history of the American
Jewish community is as old as
the nation itself. While many of
the raaterials being brought
forth for the Bicentennial deal
with the Jewish community, a
great number relate to the in-
terconnection of all groups of
Americans working together to
develop our nation.
Two annotated bibliographies
as well as pamphlets are being
distributed by the Jewish Book
Council, located at the National
Jewish Welfare Board, 15 East
26th St.. NY., 10010. The Coun-
cil is also cosponsoring "Se-

Rican pilgrims at Lod airport
and similar atrocities against
Americans, and others, at air-
ports in Rome and Athens, the
letter bombs, and other such
acts. Others have condemned
terrorism as harmful to the
Palestinian cause.
Some of the Palestinian
groups would have most of the
Jews in Israel go back to their
countries of origin, ignoring the
fact that 47 per cent of Israel's
Jewish population today is na-
tive-born and that another 20
per cent would thus have to re-
turn to Arab lands from which
they were forced to flee. There
are those who want to establish
a "secular democratic Arab
state" in Palestine, and others
who seek the radical transfor-
mation of Arab societies on the
Maoist model.
Some Palestinians are de-
termined to overthrow Jordan's
King Hussein and establish a
Palestinian state in place of his
monarchy; others, in Jordan,
the West Bank, and elsewhere,
would like to maintain a con-
nection with the Hussein re-
gime. Some Palestinians call for
an Independent state on the
West Bank, incorporating East
Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip.
A number of East Jerusalem and
West Bank Arabs favor some
continued Israeli connection, al-
though they want Israel's mili-
tary occupation to end.
Most of the Arabs who re-
mained in Israel after the crea-
tion of the new state consider
themselves loyal Israeli citizens.
While tney would welcome
peace with Israel's Arab
neighbors and easier contacts
with their brethren across the
frontiers, they hope to continue
enjoying the economic and so-
cial benefits of Israeli life.
King Hussein, pointing out
that the Palestinians make up
the majority of Jordan's popu-
lation and share fully in its
institutions, has proposed that
the West Bankers be given a
choice between independence,
a return to Jordanian rule, or
the creation of an autonomous
West Bank province under the
Hashemite crown.

Our Rabbis' Views
Jewish Law and Surviva
By DR. SAMUEL Z. JAFFE, Temple Beth EL Hollywood
The war in Southeast Asia has ended, at least for us. Our
troops have been recalled and American personnel evacuated.
But the agony of that conflict, whose outcome we sought to in-
fluence, and its tragic results, continue to haunt us. They are
written large on our collective conscience.
The terrible loss in life and treasure, which this nation has
suffered during the past decade and a half, is well documented.
Over 56,000 Americans were killed. 303.000 wounded, and 25,000
totally disabled. Our military expenditure is already over $150
billion. The Department of Commerce has estimated that the U.S.
will be paying on the Vietnam war at least until the year 2045.
and by then the total bill will have come to $352 billion.
But the greatest casualty is the U.S. itself. Not only have we
experienced one of the worst military and diplomatic defeats in
American history, but the moral climate of our nation has been
eroded. Our psychic wounds are deep and extensive, and may
show themselves in a number of ways for some time to come.
Already they are evident in the credibility gap which has
developed, in the distrust of the American people towards their
government, in the battle between Congress and the President
for the control of foreign policy, in the alienation of our young,
in the problems of inflation, recession and unemployment, and
in the trauma of demonstration and violence which have become
endemic to this age.
Vietnam has created a general malaise afflicting our society
and has torn this nation asunder. In his book. "The Wound With-
in," Alexander Kendrick writes, "the war accentuated the negative
in the thesis and antithesis of American life. Even as Vietnam
became increasingly Americanized, so America became increas-
ingly Vietnamized."
Our President now urges upon Americans to close ranks and
forget Vietnam. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger proclaims that
the tragic ordeal is now behind us, and that recrimination of any
kind can serve no purpose. But the tragedy of Vietnam cannot be
forgotten any more than one can erase from mind the picture
of the little girl, naked and napalmed, fleeing in agony from her
We must not close that agonizing and disastrous chapter in
our recent history without a congressional reassessment of our
involvement, and a careful and objective evaluation of the nature
and extent of this nation's commitments at present. It was George
Santayana who said that, "those who will not learn from history
are condemned to repeat it." If we are to safeguard our future,
we must reexamine our past.
The sudden collapse of South Vietnam and Cambodia has
brought about the removal of America's presence in that part of
the world, but has not ended our interest and involvement in
the plight of the thousands of refugees who have fled in fear
of reprisals.
Many of them have worked for our government in various
capacities in a most exposed position for years, and had been
promised safety if and when America's military and political
presence had to be withdrawn.
Many of them escaped and found a haven of. refuge on these
shores. In order to lighten some of our guilt and assume our moral
responsibilities, we have opened our doors to over 100.000 Viet-
namese, 60,000 of whom are children. Mobilizing for mercy in
such a fashion will ease our collective conscience. There are how-
ever, many Americans, including some in high places in govern-
ment, who have raised objections against the admission of these
These attitudes are either an outgrowth of the frustrations
engendered by the war itself, or because of the uncertain eco-
nomic conditions which prevail, or worse, as an expression of
racism. One lesson which we must learn from our recent ordeal,
is that by our involvement and oor attempt to influence the out-
come of the war, we have moral responsibilities to its victims.
The ultimate test of the strength and integrity of any nation
consists in its readiness to open its gates to the persecuted and
displaced. In the final analysis, it will make it easier for us to
live with ourselves and with our guilt. As our tradition has de-
clared, "righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to
any people ... for only the work of righteousness shall be peace."
What is the reason for
the Fast of the Seventeenth
Day of Tammu/.?
In the course of the destruc-
tion of the first temple in Jeru-
salem, the wall was breached
on the ninth day of Tammuz.
(Jeremiah 52:6). When the
destruction of the second tem-
ple took place the wall was
then breached on the seven-
teenth day of the month Tam-
Not wanting to make two
days of mourning and fasting
in the same month, the rabbis
set aside the seventeenth day
of Tammuz as the day of mourn-
ing and fasting for the breach
of the wall in the case of the
destruction of both temples.
Even though this was the
major reason for the Fast of
Tammuz, other regrettable in-
cidents occurred on this same
day. Moses broke the first set
of tablets on this day when he
descended the mountain of Si-
nai and found the Hebrews
worshipping the Golden Calf.
Furthermore, it was on this day
when the Graeco-Syrians be-
sieged the wall of Jerusalem
that the daily sacrifices stopped
in the temple since the He-
brews could no longer procure
the lambs due to *he siege
which cut off their supply.
A Roman leader burned a
Torah scroll publicly later on
in history on this same day.
The burning of a Torah was re-
garded as a great calamity for
the people of Israel.
Either in the days of the Mac-
cabean crisis or later during the
Roman period it is maintained
that an idol was placed in the
temple of Jerusalem on this
day thus bringing defilement to
this holy sanctuary.
In observing the fast day on
the seventeenth day of the He-
brew month of Tammuz all
these tragic events are brought
to mind. These events are still
remembered in current times
because the tragedies caused by
these events have never been
rectified yet. There still is no
temple in Jerusalem. There
still is no daily sacrifice. The
spirit of rebellion and defile-
ment is still evident in many
Jewish communities. Therefore,
the damage of yesterday has
war been repaired.
Jews remember these facts
because they still live with hope
that there will some day be the
restitution and re-establishment
of the temple of old with its
sacrifices, its state of purity and
its spirit of dedication and com-
mitment which will be evident
in Jewish communities all over
the world.
Does Judaism permit
Judaism does not permit ster-
ilization. The rabbis trace this
to a Biblical source (Leviticus
22:24) where practices like this
are forbidden in the Bible.
Some commentaries (Abra-
hanel. Chinuch and Ibn Ezra)
25 TAMUZ 7-57
consider such a practice as in-
terfering with matters which
are only the prerogative of the
Almighty, they claim.
Furthermore, one who has
himself castrated or sterilized
in some way indicates his dis-
satisfaction with the world be-
cause he evidently would like
to see less people enjoy it.
Judaism always had a positive
outlook on life and the world
as a whole.
Sterilization in males is a
more severe crime than ster-
li/ation in females. Further-
more, if it is a matter of saving
an individual's live by steriliz-
ing him. this is of course per-
There are Jewish law authori-
ties who claim that under cer-
tain conditions females may
sterilize themselves by taking
certain medication to drink, be-
cause the command to repro-
duce was generally charged to
the male.
Why does Judaism re-
quire a person to pray?
The rabbis trace the obliga-
tion to pray to a Biblical verse:
" serve Him with all your
heart" (Deuteronomy 11:13).
Besides being obligated to
perform certain deeds and to
refrain from doing other deeds,
the Jew is also obligated to
serve the Almighty
heart." This is taken .1
that one should cot
his "love" to the Aln,
acknowledgement of
mighty's power and
and his faith in the
concern for him and

Why do Jews oppose
calendar reform?
Attempts at calendar reform
have been prompted by two de-
sires: to achieve a closer syn-
chronization of the civil year of
365 days with the astronomic
fact that the earth revolves
around the sun in nearly 3d5'a
days, and to make a symmetrical
division of the year. The Gre-
gorian system now in use
achieves a close synchroniza-
tion of the civil year with the
astronomic year, but the calen-
dar lacks symmetry. A date of
the month never coincides with
the same day of the week in
successive years, and the
months have a varying number
oi days. Moreover, the year is
not divisible into either two
equal halves or four equal quar-
ters, the authoritative Encyclo-
paedia Judaica explains.
. One of the reforms suggested
is to divide the civil year into
13 months, each of 28 days; this
total of 364 days would be sup-
plemented every six years
(sometimes five), with the ad-
dition of an extra week to the
last month.
A more popular suggested re-
form is tne 80.calied World
J alendar. which proposes divid-
ing the year into four quarters
91 days (three months of 30.
. and 31 days), giving a total
of 364 days. The extra day need-

form to the astronomic cycle U

The following question was put in a poll:
"If it came to it that the only way we could get
Arab oil in enough quantity and at lower prices were
to stop supporting Israel with military aid, would
you favor or oppose such a move by the country?"
Sixty-four per cent of non-Jews in America said
they favored military aid to Israel even if it meant
higher prices for Arab oil.
ACCORDING TO Harris, American sympathy for
Israel is greater now than ever.

-JEWISH REFLECTIONS on Death." edit-
ed by Jack Riemer (Maw York. Sohocken
Books, $7.95, 183 pp.) is j .collection of essays
by numerous rabbis, some renowned Jewish
scholars and educators, and three laymen.
The essays are all written out of Jewish
tradition, and they probe various aspects of
haiacha concerning death and burial.
Some of the essayists explain the tradition,
and some contributors discuss their personal
confrontation with the death and bereavement
of close relatives.
THE AUTHOR'S introduction notes that

Gains Scored
For Israel
WHILE REASSESSMENT of U.S. policy for the Middle East
is going on in the think tank, and President Ford has been
touching the bases with President Anwar el-Sadat of Egypt and
Israel Premier Yitzhak Rabin, the organized Jewish community
of America has undoubtedly been winning increased support
in this country for Israel.
Many indicators point in that direction.
MOST ENCOURAGING are the returns from those trained
to plumb opinion. Thus Daniel Yankelovich, New York Univer-
sity specialist in the testing of views, reported recently that
74 per cent of Americans questioned consider Israel's survival
important to the United States. Testing a related subject, pollster
Louis Hj*ris has found that 65 per cent of Americans quizzed
favor sending Israel what it needs in the way of military equip-
These reports, so encouraging to all friends of Israel at a
time when Arabs are using their new found oil wealth to in-
fluence the political and economic lrfe of many nations, are v
reinfqrced by dispatch of a round robin letter to President Ford
by 76 Senators, urging the Administration to respond favorably
to Israel's current needs.
SPN. MIKE MANSFIELD and Charles Percv mav grumble
all they wish over this dramatic action by threeffourths of the
Senate, but a little dissent from Montana and Illinois can't
hurt much.
T]he most sensitive undoubtedly rally to the little state's
cause on the strength of their remembrance that the U.S.. in
this Bicentennial year of celebration of our own freedom, has
constantly held a moral commitment to a democratic com-
panion state surrounded by foes not vet emancipated from
feudal, oppressive governmental patterns.

USSR's determination to wield greater influence an the Middle

tion add to the heavy burdens borne bv individual Israelis.
While Israel sweats it out. speculation about new efforts
to damoen down the threat of war in the Middle East take

The strongest radial is an all-steel radial.
The I.R.I, is the only all-steel radial
automobile lire.
Conventional, so-called steel radials. put steel
to work beneath the tread owiy. One or two
belts of steel run the circumference of the tire
and fabric or fiber cords are used radially
sidewall to sidewall. The conventional steel
radial tire is only a steel-belted radial. This Is
important in understanding the superiority of
an I.R.I. All-Steel Radial.
An exclusive design and engineering process
put more steel in the I.R.I radial than in any
other automobile lire. Two layers or belts of
steel cables (30 per inch) make sure the I.R.I.
tread stays open for maximum road contact
in all kinds of weather. This also reduces
friction, which is the biggest single cause of
tire wear.
A third barrier of steel cables replaces the
fabric (polyester, fiberglass, etc ) used in the
sidewalls of all other automobile tires. The
result is 100 per cent steel strength and
