The vital interest of the
U.S. in a stable Middle East
peace will, with implementation
of the Agreement, be advanced
at a cost far less to this coun-
try than if there were to be an-
other Middle East war.
The Agreement helps the
U.S. effectively reassert its
leadership in world affairs. It
furthers American interest in
the Middle East, while at the
same time lessening Soviet po-
tential for incursion in that vi-
tal part of the world.
The stationing of American
civilians in the Sinai cannot be
analogized to Vietnam. They will
be so placed at the request of
both sides and are intended to
preserve peace rather than
serve the cause of one party.
The agreement therefore
is critical as a means of pre-
serving international peace and
furthering U.S. national inter-
est.
Write to our legislative dele-
gation yourself, and urge your
friends (both Jewish and non-
Jewish) and Palm Beach Coun-
ty constituents to do the same.
The CRC directive is part of
the Federation committee's pro-
gram for community education
and efforts to increase inter-
agency communications on do-
mestic issues, international af-
fairs, and the Israel Task
Force.

NEW YORK (JTA) Israeli De-
fense Minister Shimon Peres believes that
"time is in favor of peace, not war."
Speaking to a group of 200 Israel Bond
leaders at a reception at the Waldorf-
Astoria, where $2.3 million in Israel Bonds
was sold, Peres predicted that "in ten to
fifteen years peace will come" in the
Middle East.
Peres cautioned that Israel must have
"the strength to negotiate, and we should
negotiate from strength. The stronger Is-
rael becomes, the more Israel has been
able to be forthcoming in negotiations."

Sharon, military advisor to the Prime Min-

session of the 78th ZOA national conven-

interview tijat he categorically opposes
the interim agreement with Egypt which
he regards as a serious danger to Israel's
security.
Sharon declared that Israel is no
closer to real peace, indeed may be on
the threshold of a new war.
IT IS for this reason that he stays at

New
Pound
Devaluation
JERUSALEM (JTA)
The Cabinet decreed a 10 per-
cent devaluation of the Pound
and imposed a series of new
taxes and levies during a six-
hour special session devoted to
the nation's economic plight.
The measures, intended to
reduce Israel's huge budget
deficit and combat inflation by
absorbing excess spending pow-
er, were announced before dawn
Sunday while most of the na-
tion was asleep and banks and
shops were closed.
THE POUND now stands at
IL 7-$l compared to the IL 6.36-
$1 ratio of barely three weeks
ago when the Pound was re-
duced in value by 1.9 per cent.

Apology Accepted
WASHINGTON (JTA) Sen. Richard Stone
(D Fla.) said here that he has accepted a personal
apology from Florida businessman Jack Eckerd for in-
jecting a religious issue into the 1974 Senatorial cam-
paign in that state.
Eckerd, the Republican candidate who was soundly
defeated by Stone, ran advertisements in Florida news-
papers on the eve of Election Day and on Election Day
itseir noting that he was a Protestant and Stone a Jew.
THE B'NAI B'RITH Anti-Defamation League urged
President Ford last week not to appoint Eckerd to the
post of Administrator of the General Services Adminis-
tration for which he was reportedly being considered.
George Bernstein, chairman of the ADL's Florida
regional board, said in a letter to the President that
Eckerd was "not fit to hold a top level position in our
government" because of his "obvious appeal to religious
prejudice in the last election campaign."
In a special ceremony consecrating the Jewish Federa-
tion's new "home," Rabbi Hyman Fishman pointed out to
Federation President Bette Gilbert and the board of di-
rectors the shape of the new mezzuzah a flame sym-
bolizing Jewish life "which Federation must keep burn-
ing at all times." The mezzuzah was placed on the en-
trance door to the Federation's new headquarters at 2415
Okecchobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.

New groups have been form-

Judaean Youth. Following the
regional theme of the bicenten-
nial and "Jews in America,"
the Senior Group of Young

Temple Israel
Twenty of Ellen Cohen's
eighth grade students at Temple
Israel Religious School were so
moved by a film of the Yom
Kippur War that they wanted
to do something in their own
way to help their brothers and
sisters in Israel.
Through bake sales and per-
sonal contributions they raised
$83.50, which has been contrib-
uted to the 1975 Israel Emer-
gency Fund thru Federation as
tneir personal expression of the
true meaning of Tzekakah.

Southeastern Florida Region of Women's American
'-^Rr has played a major role in building the economic
ftnd social development of nations through vocational
-education. Its.goals will not be reached until every man
can help himself.
**>cer 5,000 women of the Southeastern Florida Re
gion of the organization are dedicating themselves to-
ward the achievement of this end.
And they are taking note of the 23rd biennial con-
vention of ORT scheduled for New Yorlc on Oct. 26 to 30,
by which time their ranks must be enlarged by 600
new members.
Because of the urgent needs of Jewish people every-
where, and the growing demands of the ORT global net-
work, the organization's ongoing membership drive must
not cease.
In the belief that -every woman in our society is a
potential member," the Southeast Florida Region hopes
to achieve its new membership goal by convention time.
Overlooking the Facts
Israel has in the last several weeks been castigated
by some in the Pentagon and elsewhere for seeking
u'.tra-sophisticated weapons from the United States,
even at the expense of America's own military capabil-
ity. The controversy has centered around Israel's re-
quest for the Pershing long-range ground-to-ground mis-
siles.
Critics have charged that to give Israel the Pershing
cculd tip the balance of power in the Middle East since
Israel could then hit Egyptian cities. Some have claimed
there is a danger of Israel triggering a war since
the Pershings are capable of carrying nuclear warheads
and Israel reportedly has the ability to build nuclear
weapons.
This overlooks both Israeli Defense Minister Shimon
Peres' statement in Washington that Israel will provide
a guarantee not to use nuclear warheads and the Israeli
governments oft-repeated policy that it will not be the
first to introduce nuclear weapons in the Mideast.
Even more important, it overlooks the fact that the
Soviet Union has heavily armed Egypt, and more recent-
ly Syria, including missiles capable of reaching all of
Israel's population centers.

Bad Side of tlw Sinai Coin
rt\) fJWTE TV tycoon Jotinny
Carson's terpsichory of
twaddle, there is good news,
and there is bad news.
The-good news is that Presi-
dent Ford has decided to limit
the freewheeling style of his
campaign for the presidency
The bad news is no news
reaMy. other than the observa-
tion that it is President Ford
who Vetoed the Privacy Act of
1974.
IT IS President Ford who is
behind Secretary of Commerce
Rogers Morton's refusal to sup-
ply Congress with the documen-
tation of Arab boycott demands
that American industry discrim-
inate against Jewish business-
es, executives and employees
It is President Ford who un-
derwrites Henry Kissinger's re-
fusal to make public our secret
agreements with Israel and
Egypt in the interim Sinai ac-
cord.
And so the bad news is that
the good news is ;i lie. The Pres-
ident's regret that he can no
longer come into close contact
with the American people is
merely an expression of regret
that he can no longer campaign
for the presidency in the old
sentimental style.
BIT COMING into contact
with the American people really
has nothing to do with shaking
their hands or kissing their
babies. It has to do with telling
them the truth.

In Israel, this particular day
is not a festival because the
holiday ends the day before.
Whatever celebration takes
place outside of Israel on the
day of Simchat Torah, takes
place in Israel the day before
that, i.e., "Shmini Atzereth."
In those communities where
the Pentateuch is read in an
annual cycle, this day Is the
day on which the last portion
of the Pentateuch is read, im-
mediately followed by the read-
ing of the first portion from the
verv beginning
This festival had an earlier
name called "Yom Hasefer."
which indicated that was the
day in which the Book of Penta-
teuch was completed in the
series of annual readings in the
synagogue. The conclusion of
the study or reading of any
book called for a celebration.
Simchat Torah falls in line with
this practice.
Why are the Torahs carried
around the synagogue in cir-
cuits called "Hakafot?"
Generally speaking, this WM
a means of bringing the Torah
as close as possible to even-
Jewman. woman and child
The rabbis were very insistent
ttiat the Torah not remain a
private possession of the schol-
ar; but rather the inheritance
of every Jew.
Some say that the seven cir-
cuits represent the seven Pa-
cuits represent the seven Pat-
Joseph, Moses, Aaron and
David. This was meant to show
that our traditions were repeat-
ed through the generations.
Some indicate that the seven
circuits are similar to the seven
circuits Joshua made around the
walls of Jericho. They indicate
that the Jew with his Torah can
break down any barrier of prej-
udice and misunderstanding.
Others claim that the seven
circuits represent the seven
spheres of holiness through
which man travels to reach the
Almighty. The Torah thus, is the
ladder of approach on which
man climbs to the zenith of holi-
ness.

Otto Kurz
Dead at 67
LONDON (JTA) Prof.
Otto Kurz died here at the age
of 67. Born in Vienna, he was
educated in the Humanitisches
Gymnasium and in the univer-
sity of that citv.
In 1933, he qualified for
membership in the Austrian
Institute for Historical Research
and in the same year joined the
Kulturwissenschaft Bibllothek
Warburg in Hamburg, remain-
ing with it when Fritz Saxl took
the Warburg Institute (as it
became) to London. In 1943, he
was made assistant librarian
and in 1949 librarian.
In 1962, he was elected Fel-
low of the British Academy. In
later life, Kurz' interests turned
more to the Middle East, partly
as a result of his collaboration
with Prof. Richard Eittinghaus-
en, in establishing the L. A.
Mayer Memorial. He is surviv-
ed by his wife, Hilde, and a
married daughter.
Shapp Enters Race.**
WASHINGTON (JTA) Gov. Milton Shapp of
Pennsylvania has announced that he will seek the
Democratic Party's Presidential nomination in 1976. He
is the first Jew in American history to formally declare
himself a major party candidate for the nation's highest
office.
Asked by a reporter if his Jewishness will be a
factor, lie replied, "No, I don't believe so. John F. Ken-
nedy broke the religious barrier." Shapp, 63, is serving
his second term as Governor of Pennsylvania, having
been reelected last year by a majority of more than
300,000 votes, the largest ever given a Democratic Gu-
bernatorial candidate in that state.
In connection with his Presidential aspirations, he
noted that Pennsylvania is much like a cross-section of
the United States.
"We have our Bible belts, blue collar areas a
mixture" like much of America. "People are not so con-
cerned about a candidate's religious background but his
understanding of problems," he said.

Ii> RABBI MAX I.. FORMAN
Temple Emanu-EI, Palm Beach
The wee* Of Oct. 12-13 has
ven dtalgn it>id United Syna-
gogue Conservative Movement
\\-ek.
A- graduate of the Jewish
RABJ MAX FORMAN
.'heological Seminary of Amer-
ca. the founuinhead of Con-
ervatism all over the world. I
hould like to describe some of
he activities, of the Seminarv
nd its achievements that have
edounded to the ^lory of Con
-ervatism in particular and of
"udaism in general.
The Seminary means many
hings to many people, but the
ne upon which most people
ire likely to agree is the thumb-
lail sketch made of it by Time
lagarino some years ago.
IN A cover story on Dr. Louis
"inkelstein, then Chancellor of
he Seminary, Time referred to
his great Aqademy on Morn-
lgside Heights in Manhattan
- "the most influential school
f Jewish theology in the world
oday."
The Seminary ranks with the
-,-reat Yeshivot of pre-World
Var II Europe and the historic
\cademie* of the Middle Ages.
n this great tradition, it has
wrought to its halls the fore-
nost Jewish scholars from all
corners of the earth, and given
hem the opportunity to con-
in-.ie their research and schol-
irship in an environment of a
vibrant and creative student
'">ody. and in the company of
heir peers in Jewish academic
earning.
While the Seminary is first
nd foremost a Rabbinical
School and Teachers' Institute.
t maintains numerous other
unctions which relate to the
->urpose for which it was
winded.
THER IS a Seminary Col-
ege of Jewish Studies, a Can-
on;" Institute and Seniin.
College of Jewish Music, a
Vomen's Institute, an Institute
or Religious and Social Studies
which is open to clergymen of
nil faiths), a Pastoral Psychia-
ry Center, an Institute of Tal-
rmdic Ethics, a Univeisity of
daism in Los Angeles, and a
Student Center in Jerusalem.
re are aLo adjuncts to
hese academic faculties: first
nd foremost, the famous Sem-
inary Library which attracts
cholars, Jewish and non-Jew-
sh. from all over the world
ontaining the largest collection
f Jewish books and roann-
cripts ever assembled under
>ne roof throughout the long
. ourse.of Jewish*" history.

Avenue), wh*s*. cMe*ign,v oL

spent the remainder ot his life
In America Greenberg became
the moving force in the Labor
Zionist movement and attained
the peak of his creativity in the
fields of literature, statesman-

The weekly Yiddisher Kemfer

not only his impeccable high

aggressively passionate dedica-

He was in the fullest meaning
of the term a Talmid Chochom
i Scholar. His profound eru-
dition in every aspect of Jewish
intellectual life, in the Talmud
and its commentaries, its ethical
literature, its mysticism, and in
its Inter Hebrew and Yiddish
iratnre was phenomenal.
But Greenberg was too much
the universalist to be limited to
the Jewish world He was a man
of great culture and an unusual
linguist and was stimulated by

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Sincere Commitment Is
Our Primary Concern
EDITOR. The Jewish Floridian:
In the Jewish Floridian of
Sept 19. a Reform Rabbi takes
exception to his being excluded
from using the Mikveh for con-
versjon purposes. In his story.
he tells of arranging a Reform
Beth Dip" to examine a non-
Jewish lady with the intention
averting her according t0
Halach_.li
He charges the Orthodox
Rabbinate with playing polities
with abusive control of a com-
munity institution and with
denying those who would ob
I the law access to the ap-
propriate institution in which
to do so

when the blow would-fall, there
was intensive activity on the
local money marketsblack and
legitimatebefore financial in-

was reported.
The impact on consumers
was eased somewhat when the
Treasury, bowing to Hiatadrut
pressure, reversed an earlier de-
cision to eliminate price sup-
ports for basic commodities
such as bread, milk and cook-
ing oil
But many analysts claimed
that the government's move
would send the cost-of-Jiving in-

cent.

to save himself from dangerous
political situations. And I*m
betting on him to do it again
and again.
THE QUESTION in the end
is not whether the good side of
the coin has succeeded in
causing a break in Arab ranks.
The question in the end is that
the bad side of the coin has
succeeded in causing a break
in American ranks.
This is not a personal thing.
It is not a break over Israel but
a break over secret commit-
ments who is the ruler and
who is the ruled. And this time,
in this war, Israel stands be-
tween the monoliths of a bloat-
ed executive bureaucracy and
the people's legislative might
ready for intramural combat.
And that is NOT good.

Terrorists Hit
Rabbi's Home
PARIS (JTA) Terrorists set off an explosion
of pressurized gas at the home of France's Chief Rabbi,
Jacob Kaplan. Several bottles of gas, triggered by a
wired explosive device, went off before the Chief Rab-
bi's home at about 8 p.m.
No one was hurt, and property damage was slight.
A threatening letter, sent to all Party rabbis two weeks
ago, had announced the imminent attack an Rabbi
Kaplan.
"I DO not know who is responsible for this attack,"
Rabbi Kaplan told reporters. "It is obvious that, through
me. it is aimed at the entire community which I rep-
resent."

Do you have a question relating to a family problem?
Each month, the Jewish Family and Children's Service
will attempt to answer questions of general interest in
this column. Inquiries should be addressed to "Dear
Jenny," Jewish Family and Children's Service, 2415
Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach, Florida 33409.
Telephone: 684-1991.
Dear Jenny,
Everyone around me seems
to be busy, with so many things
to do, but I am not. The condo-
minium complex where I live
has lots of activities and I
would like to join in many of
them. The reason I haven't
. done this is because I am un-
comfortable when I have to
meet new people. I know I have
to do this if I want to make new
friends, but whenever 1 decide
that now is the time, I find an
excuse for delay.
What can I do to get started?
Henry
Dear Henry,
In your brief letter it was, of
course, impossible to say any-
thing about your background,
which gives me very little to
go on. Perhaps your problem
is more than just meeting new
people.
A personal conversation with
a counselor might help you to
feel more comfortable in these
situations and lead to a more
interesting use of your free
time. Why don't you call the
JF&CS office and make an ap-
pointment?
Jenny
Dear Jenny,
My son is beginning his sec-
ond year of college, and is still
undecided about what his ma-
jor interest will be. It worries
me that his goals and objectives
seem so diffused. He is a bright
boy who could benefit from a
college education, but how can
he do so when his goals are
still so undefined?
Have you any suggestions as
to how I, as a mother, can help
him channel his abilities toward
a satisfying career?
Perturbed Mother
Dear Mother.
Ycur son's problem is not so
unusual in this day and age but,
of course, this is no answer.
Most universities have counsel-
ors whose job it is to help stu-
dents with these problems. Un-
fortunately, under the pres-
sures of campus life it is often
difficult for both student and
counselor to find the necessary
time to explore ideas and pos-
sibilities.
Perhaps when your son is at
home on vacation he would like
to visit Mrs. Jacobson at the
JF&CS office. A neutral coun-
seling situation may help him
to define his goals and objec-
tives more clearly.
Jenny

the whole of the Italian press
joined.
It was a marginal episode,
since the larger game ltseii nas
to be played out inside Italy by
the Italians. If it is in fact a
principle of modern history
that no Popular-Front regime
can trust its Communist part-
ners to remain true partners,
and not use it to seize power,
the Italians seem to have for-
gotten it.
SINCE GRAMSCI, the party's
founder, and since Togliatti,
the chief architect of its Pop-
ular-Front tactic, the Commu-
nists have tried to persuade the
Italian voters that they are not
outlanders and they are not the
feathered serpent.
Despite the examples of Leon
Blum in France, of the Spanish
Civil War. of the Hungarians,
Czechs and Poles, despite Sol-
zhenitsyn, the Italians don't
seem to have been cured of an
insistent streak of political in-
nocencj. I heir own Ignazio Si-
lone tried to tell them that
freedom is the very bread and
wine ol life, and a perishable
commodity.
They cannot grasp that the
Janissaries of a closed society
could possibly display themselv-
es in the sunlight, instead of
hiding always in the shadows.
THE KEY decision affecting
a Communist partnership will
have to be made by the Social-
ists, who also gained in the
June elections, but not as much
as the Communists.
A great politics, in any na-
tion, takes tactical skill, guts
and vision. It remains to be seen
whether the Italian Socialists
have combined them as the
Portuguese Socialists seem to
have.

"New Dimensions 76," a new
project of the Palm Beach
County Retired Senior Volun-
teer Program, was launched
last month under a mini-grant
from ACTION, the agency that
also administers Peace Corps,
Vista, and others.
Its purpose is to involve re-
tirees in the county who have
special expertise in the world
of business, the arts, or profes-
sions to make educational and
cultural presentations to com-
munity groups, such as senior
citizens, the home-bound and
youth groups.
The programs are expected
to help enrich the lives of those
who give and those who re-
ceive; they will develop social
interaction among citizens from
varied geographic,
age backgrounds. The |
will also promote in
museums and other
sources.

about to find out
you never heard of
tire for these times
Radically new. Radically different.
The only radial with steel sidewalls.
The I RI. All-Steel Radial is the worlds first
all-steel radial tire for automobiles. It's the
most economical tire you can own. Because of
the radial design, you get more miles per gallon
of gas than from either bias or belted bias
tires Because of the exclusive I.R.I. All-Sted
construction, you get thousands of extra miles
out of the tire itself. We believe the result
Is the lowest cost per mile of driving from any
kind or any brand of tire on the market today.
Our engineers believe the I.R.I. All-Steel
Radial drives safer, rides more comfortably,
steers more precisely and responds surer
than any other tire you can buy at any price.
We guarantee them for 50.000 miles. What's
more, Norton is so sure you'll find these
the finest tires you've ever had that if you
are not satisfied at any time within 90 days,
we will refund your purchase price in fulL
No tricks. No hidden charges.
But, boil it all down and
you've got three basic
tire types to consider.
I. BIAS
2. BELTED 3. RADIAL
L BIAS TIRES
Two. lour or lometimes even more plies (of
layers) ol mjterul cross under the tread at an
angle or bias to the center line ol the tire. General*
the cheapest tire to buy.
2. BELTFD TIRES
Similar to the bias tire with the addition of two
or more belts of material that run around the lire
under the tread This combines a bras sidewaD
with increased tread stability and improved
tread life.
3. RADIAL TIRES
Offer the most desirable features Cords of
material run from sidewall to sidewall crossing the
tread at 90 degrees Two or more belts of material
also run around the tire Price per tire is higher,
but cost per mile is lower.
Buying tires is tough enough.
You almost need an engineer's education to
understand tire advertising these days. There
are bias and belted and radial types. F-78's
and FR-78 s and 7 75 s all of which fit the
same car. And nylon and rayon and polyester
and fiberglass and steel. And plies on plies.

The strongest radial is an all-steel radial.
The I.R.I, is the only all-steel radial
automobile tire.
Conventional, so-called steel radials, put steel
to work beneath the tread only. 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 tire. Two layers or belts of
steel cables (30 per inch) make sure the 1 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
protection.
Rated Load Range D.
I RI. All-Steel Radials meet government stand-
ards equivalent to an eight-ply rating and it's
stamped on the side of every I R I tire Most
passenger tires even steel-belted radials -
earn only a B or four-ply rating Load Range D
means an extra margin of strength and safety
for all vehicles, even the heaviest of luxury
automobiles, station wagons or pickups.
Improved steel cable design means extra
comfort, loo.
The I.R.I. All-Steel Radial uses a specially
designed steel cable engineered exclusively for
us. Each cable is wound of seven strands of

three-filament wire. That's a total of 21 strong
steel filaments in each cable. Yet. with all this
strength, the cable is as flexible as silk. The
result is a soft, luxurious ride.
The new year-'round tread.
A special computer-designed tread configura-
tion was developed to make maximum use
of the strength built into the I.R.I. All-Sted
Radial. Now. the combination of steel and
tread design provides solid, road-holding
performance under all kinds of driving
conditions wet or dry. snow or summer heat.
The l.R.I. is an all-weather, all-year tire.
Why you haven't heard about I.R.I.
All-Steel Radials till now.
Compared with the giants of the tire industry,
I R.I. is a relatively small company. We
are growing steadily on a market-by-market
plan now reaching your city. Five years
ago. we set out to produce a tire that was as
good as the finest imported tire available.
Because we had no conventional tire-making
equipment, we were free "to try anything "
We did And came up with a totally new idea
that produced a tire even better than the one
we had set out to make. The I.R.I. All-Sted
Radial has been tested and re-tested. Subjected
to literally millions of miles of road-handling
experience Now it's available here Backed by
a 50,000-mile guarantee. Sold and serviced only
by proven leaders in the business.
