Joseph List
The Officers and Board
of Directors of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County sorrowfully note
and record the pasting of
Joseph List.
A founding member and
honorary trustee of the
Jewish Federation, Mr. List
gave generously of his time
and means in the building
of the Jewish community
and in support of the United
Jewish Appeal.
His gift of an 18-acre site
permitted the creation of
Camp Shaken. which wiH
long stand as a tribute to
new policy approach in the
Middle East that would im-
ply support for the PLO un-
der certain conditions as a
means of leverage on Syria
to negotiate a second disen-
gagement agreement with
Israel on the Golan Heights.
President Hafez Assad of
Syria has stated repeatedly
that he will make no further
political moves if the Pales-
tinian problem is not taken
up and the U.S., which con-
tinues to say it will not tol-
erate stalemate or stagna-
tion in the Mideast peace
process, appears to take him
at his word, Israeli sources
said here.

Jews, Blacks, Women
Barred from Arab Jobs
SACRAMENTO (JTA) The California State
Department of Transportation has announced that Jews,
Blacks and women will be excluded from a plan to send
as many as 500 soon-to-be jobless highway engineers to
build roads in Saudi Arabia.
Robert Best, chief deputy of the Transportation De-
partment, said that under the program in which the state
will technically keep the engineers on the payroll while
Saudi Arabia pays their salaries, they will comply with
Saudi Arabia's policy "not to issue a visa to anyone con-
nected with the Israeli government."
He said to the Saudis this means anyone who is
"Another aspect of the situation is we would want
to protect Jewish people by not sending them there be-
cause it is a very emotional issue," Best said. Another
department official reportedly said that in addition to
Jews, Blacks are not welcome in Saudi Arabia and wom-
on don't participate in the country's business life.
Chanukah: Our
Ancient Festival
Of the Lights
jPHANUKAH is known as the
^ "Festival of Lights," a name
rooted in the practice of light-
ing candles on eight successive
nights. The name of the holiday
"dedication" tn Hebrew
stems from Judah the Macca-
bee's rededication of the Second
Temple in Jerusalem about 165
The festival also marks his
victory some three years earlier
over the Greek king Antiochus
Epiphanes a tryaat of the House
of Seleucos who had plundered
the Temple while seeking to
forcibly Hellenize Judea.
HIS CRUEL exeesaea against
the Jews which included effects
to the compel them to parti-
cipate to pagan rites ignited the
Hasmonean uprising. The Haa-
moneans were a rriestly dynasty
founded bv Mattathias of Modin.
and his five sons, Judah among
them, led the popular rebellion
in Palestine against Antiochus.
The celebration takes place
between Kislev 25 and Tevet 2
on the Jewish calendar. The
foundation of this is the next
of I Maccabees 4:59: "And Ju-
dah and his brethren and the
whole congregation of Israel
ordained that the days of the
dedication of the altar should be
kept in their seasons from year
to year for eight days from the
25th day of Kislev."
This became embellished by
the Talmud (Shabbat 21b) which
states that the festival contin-
ued for eight days because the
oil discovered in the Temple,
though enough only for one day,
burned miraculously for eight
until new supplies were located.:
CHANUKAH canines are light-
ed in an eight-branch candela-
brum known as a menorah from
a ninth candle known as the

to have been composed by Mor-

origuially took place in the Ash-

recite the 30th Psalm.

Fowl Opposes Punitive Aid Cuts to Arabs
WASHINGTON has reaffirmed to Congress that it opposes any reduction in
its planned assistance this fiscal year of $1.3 billion to
Egypt, Syria and Jordan, despite the United Nations anti-
Zionist resolution.
It also wants approval of $2.3 billion earmarked foi
Israel. The figures include military and economic support
and agricultural commodities under the Food for Peace
program. The same amounts are envisioned for the next
fiscal vear.
Kissintcr responded that H
aid is not cmtin.ied to Israel,
"the Arflbs Bilg%t be tempted
to stait a war."
He added that Israel must
take "in place in line" for
weapons h.iny produced and
those ordered this year may
not be deli' end until 1980.
KisMfifivr also said Israel is
protwMv sightly Mronjrcr"
now than in 1973, "but remem-

airlift" to help Israel in the war

First Chanukah Candle
Friday evening is the first Chanukah candle. His-
torians keep telling us that Chanukah is really a minor
Jewish festival, but in our own time it is rapidly emerg-
ing as one of the happiest and most soul-sustaining holi-
days in the entire Jewish calendar.
The warmth of the candles, the joyous centrality
of children to its spirit, the festive glow of the occasion
through eight days of blessings and song all this
brings to Chanukah a binding quality that reminds us
of our culture and tradition, and the price we have paid
for them in suffering and deliverance, throughout the
Few of our holidays do all these things better
than Chanukah,
Above all, there is the story of the miracle the
cruze of oil meant to last for but a short time, and that
lasted long enough (the eight days of the festival) for
a new supply of sanctified oil to be made.
In this miracle, there is a statement applicable to
modern Judaism and the contemporary Jewish experi-
Historic Promise Fulfilled
It surely is relevant to our times that nothing in
our history could have foreseen the fact of Jewish sur-
vival since the Maccabees. In fact, the reverse is true.
Even in the 20th century, from Hitler to the Arabs,
the course of Jewish experience would suggest demise
rather than survival.
And particularly so far as the Arabs, themselves,
are concerned: Not only is there the need for new
supplies of oil for all of us sanctified oil, non-Arab
oil but there is the promise of the holiday:
The oil is destined to come.
Jewish history promises this in the same way that
Jewish history has assured the Jewish continuum from
time immemorial.
Chanukah not only is increasingly enjoyable. Its
historic promise remains endlessly fascinating.
Academy Anniversary
Greater Miami Hebrew Academy celebrates its 28th
anniversary this month, with its more than 700 students
making it the largest Hebrew day school in the South.
Under the leadership of Rabbi Alexander S. Gross, its
principal for more than a quarter of a century, the He-
brew Academy is considered one of the fine Jewish
educational institutions in the country.
The Academy will observe its official birthday with
a community-wide dinner at the Deauville Hotel Dec.
14 honoring one of its founders, former Bay Harbor Is-
lands Mayor Shepard Broad.
Now, the Hebrew Academy is a beneficiary agen-
cy for the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, receiving
yearly allocations for the community's CJA-IEF cam-
Numerous Academy families "went it alone" for
many years, supporting Torah education at a time when
the community had not yet made day school education
a priority.
The 28th anniversary celebration is a tribute to
them, as well as to the South Florida community that
now joins in supporting it.
Community Philanthropy
The danger that New York City's financial crisis
may spread to other cities is slowly being realized by
more and more Americans. For American Jews the
problem is especially urgent since most of them live in
urban areas.
This was eloquently pointed out by Sanford Solen-
der, executive vice president of the Federation of Jew-
ish Philanthropies of New York, in an address to the
General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds in Miami Beach last week.

JERUSALEM (JTA) Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim flew into Israel from Syria early this week,
bearing with him what he called "concrete ideas" on the
UNDOF renewal issue.
All indications were that Waldheim had secured

the prospect of some further diplomatic progress in the

vations about his apparent desire to broaden his mission
into a more general exploration of negotiating prospects
As United Nations Secretary General, and as such
bound by General Assembly resolutions, Waldheim is not
considered by Israel a particularly useful go-between
at this time and was told so in no uncertain terms, in-
cluding reaction to a message from President Assad that
an UNDOF renewal would have to be predicated in Is-
raeli recognition of "Palestinian rights."
Officials said the Premier and other government
leaders intended to keep the talks with Waldheim closely
confined to the mandate question.
They would not favor extensive discussion of nego-

THE MENORAH of Chanukah
a non-Biblical holiday, original-

years it assumed the design of
the seven-branched candela-
brum which was used in the
Temple. In recent years crafts-
men and artists have created
wide variety of menorah forms.
On the first Sabbath of Chanu-
kah the prophetical portion
read is Zechariab, 2:14-4:7 which
includes the verse: "Not bv
might nor by power, but by My
spirit, saith the Lord of Hosts."
This emphasis is seen as a
rabbinicl desire to olv down the
militry facet of Chanukah and
to focus on the facet of the sur-
vival of religious values threat-
ened by pagan and idolatrous
ONE OF the familv customs
of Chanukah is to pass evenings
at home spinning the Chanukah

Yiddish. It bears the initials of
the Hebrew phrase "A great

rael the word "here" is sub-

"A whole new entity with an

of Jewish education and culture
is needed "to provide a new

made to the 44th General As-

(C'JF) by its Committee for Na-
tional Planning for Jewish Edu-
cation and Culture under the
chairmanship of George M. Zelt-
rer of Detroit.
Observing that nearly S250.-

American Jewish community

schools, camps and Jewish com-

S >0 000.000 is spent annually by

A streamlining of the present

yoaps of CJF leadership. Ep-
stein said:
"I am calling for a stream-

effort of redirection and reor-
ganization is required." he
stated, also advising "that this
must be done planfully, that
established structure and pro-
grams must bend to the ex-

munity and that we must
emerge with instruments more
suited to the times and more
capable of resolving the issues

be brought about only by strong

Stating that he is not calling
for merger and greater cen-

that is clearly desired," he
urged American Jewish leader-
ship to harness all its forces
in a recognition and acceptance
of responsibility to the com-
munity and authority to speak
and act within whatever limits
the community sets.
"If it be said that frequently
there is merit in more than
one voice being heard on an
important subject, I agree. But

ferences among armed forces

ACCORDING to Col. Dews,
[the Institute "perceived a need,
for the inchfion of anti-
Semitism" in its courses but'
"had serious concern over just
hw to present the problem hon-
esty and totally."
The Anti-Defamation League,;
I h: went on to say, has "provid-

we are using to -ffectivel" pre-\
sent even the most potentially
controversial issues."
In an introduction to the
'Anti-Semitism" text, Maj. Alan
M. Osur, an instructor at the
Institute, points out that be-
cause Jews are "highly visible"
in local businesses, teaching and
other professions, they are made
"scapegoats," particularly dur-
ing times of crises.
MAJOR OSL'R citet today's
economic recession and "the re-
cent Arab oil boycott" as crises.
He goes on to say that a special
concern of the armed forces is
"strained relations between
Blacks and Jews."
"Since the military is a cross
stttion of American attitudes
nd beliefs," Maj. Osur declares.

Saunders' Statement
WASHINGTON (JTA) The State Department af-
firmed that it "stands on" testimony given by Deputy As-
sistant Secretary of State Harold Saunders to a subcommit-
tee of the House International Relations Committee last
week which is viewed in Is-
raeli circles as indicating a
possible shift of U.S. policy
toward the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization.
Department spokesman
Robert Funseth told report-
ers that Saunders' state-
ment "represented only a
re-statement" of U.S. policy
and is not a change of posi-
tion. He said he could not
understand why the Israelis
were disturbed by it.
THE ISRAELI Laninet issued
a statement at its weekly ses-
sion Sunday saying that a trap
script of Saunders' remarks was
replete with "errors and mis-
representations" and that Is-
rael's "reservations and qualifi-
cations" would be brought "in
full" to the attention of tbe
U.S. government.

Inside Judbiica
Insights on questioas
of Jewish Interest
What is the biblical atti-
tude toward miracles?
Biblical Hebrew has no word
corresponding to the English
miracle" (Ex. 3:20; Josh. 3:5;
.Ps. 78;11;; etc.), but, says the
authoritative Encyclopaedia Ju-
daica, the meaning of "wonder"
is much broader than "miracle."
A particular class of miracles,
however, can be considered as
a definite biblical concept, since
it is designated by terms of its
own. These are the "signs," i.e.,
exfraordmnry and surprising
events which God brought about
.in oeder .to .demonstsate His
power and will in particular
situations, when men had to be
convinced. A sign can be given
a .proof, of. ocoohecv. Thus the
nhar of-Beth-El collapsed as a
sign that the orophecy of its
future destruction was true (I
Kings 13:1-6). The more im-
portant slsjns occurred in Egypt:
Jhe- staff .turned, into a serpent
to show that Moses was indeed
.seat byjQod (Ex.4;l-7); the ten
plagues coerced Pharoah to ac-
cept the divine command .and
let the people go.
Some biblical. roiiscles are
more than signs, in tthat Iheir
purpose goes beyond the mere
proof of divine ..power. Israel
was saved and Egypt's army
destroyed bv the parting of the
Red Sea, the people -were given
water and food in the desert bv
means of miraculous acts, and
so on. Both Samaria (II Kings
6:8-7:20) and Jerusalem (fl
Kings 19:35) miraculously e-
caned conquest by besieging
Such miracles can be viewed
as direct divine intervention at
critical moments of human hi--
tory. Even in these incidents the
element of a "sign" is never
wholly absent. Da than and Abi-
ram and their followers were
swallowed bv the earth; it was
a just punishment, whose sud-
denness was demanded by the
situation. Moses' words (Num.
.1638-30), however designate
.the event cleaily as a sign. aLso stated that when
Israel saw >he mighty deed of
Egypt's destruction in the sea
they believed in God ./>d in
.Moses (Ex. 14:31). Evidently,
.says. the.Encyclopaedia. Judaica.
.the .Bible makes no distinction
between siens proper and mi-
raculous divine intervention in
human history.
There is a third type of mir-
acle in the Bible in which the
sheer admiration of the woader-
.worker seems more important
than both elements discussed
.above. One cannot escape^ this
.impression when reading the
stories about Elijah and, o an
even greater degree, about
Elisha. Such stories are a regu-
lar feature of ootrtdar religion:

I Am a Zionist
Temple Beth El
West Palm Beach
I am proud to be a Zionist.
Since childhood, when I first
learned to pray each day, "0
may our eyes witness thy re-
turn to Zion. Blessed art Thou,
O Lord, who restorest thy di-
vine presence unto Zion."
In the Bible, Zion is used as
another name for the city of
Jerusalem, and the return to
Zion is part of the messianic
hope of the Jewish people. For
centuries Jews have prayed for
the Messiah to come and bring
us all back to Zion. Once there,
we hoped, God would bring
about a period of peace and
tranquility for all mankind, as
described in Isaiah. Chapter 2.
Zionism, as we know it to-
day, is a political development
of this same messianic ideal,
bqought about after centuries
of persecution and oppression.
Theodore Herzl, the founder of
political Zionism, became a
Zionist at the Dr*vfus trial,
which he covered as a report-
There, he witnessed anti-
Semitism first-hand, as engen-
dered by the trial, and conclud-
ed that Jews needed a state of
their own. Herat's dream be-
came a reality in 1948, when
the State of Israel came into
being after the Holocaust that
had decimated European Jew-
A democratic state was estab-
lished where all people had
equal rights and opportunities.
Israel today is one of the few
nations of the world which has
successfully gathered various
ethnic groups into its culture
to create a uniquely Israeli life
for all its people.
The recent vote at the United
Nations which condemned Zion-
ism as a form of racism is lu-
dicrous. Many of the nations
who voted for the resolution
are themselves guilty of prac-
ticing racism; those countries
have lost the respect of all
freedom-loving peoples.
The prophecy of Isaiah is still
to be fulfilled. It is to be hoped
all nations will become united
through a redirected United
Nations, true to its original

His brothers bow before Joseph who is now the rul-
er of Egypt.
"And Joseph was the governor over the land .
And Joseph's brethren came, and bowed down to him"
(Gen. 42.6).
MIKETZ Two years later, Pharaoh dreamt a
dream in two slightly different versions. The dream
terrified the king of Egypt; but none of his sages could
explain it satisfactorily. Pharaoh's butler remembered
Josephs masterly interpretations of dreams, and inform-
ed Pharaoh. Joseph was brought before Pharaoh and ex-
plained the dream as forecasting seven years of plenty
that were to come to the land of Egypt, only to be suc-
ceded by seven years of famine. He adviaed Pharaoh to
appoint a wise overseer to collect wheat during the
years of plenty and distribute it during the years of
famine. Pharaoh appointed Joseph himself to this post
as his viceroy.
As Joseph had forecast, the Egyptian stores of
wheat were in great demand during the seven years of
famine. Among those who came to buy wheat in Egypt
were Joseph's oldest brothers. Joseph recognized them,
but they did not know him. Joseph so contrived that
the brothers came to Egypt a second time, bringing
Benjamin, Joseph's full brother with them. Joseph re-
ceived them cordially; but then he made it seem as
though Benjamin had stolen a goblet, and insisted that
be stay behind as a servant. The brothers refused to
abandon Benjamin, and all decided to return to Jo-
seph's home.

Palm Beach County
The Rabbinical Council of
Palm Beach County wishes to
make known some important
facts regarding advertisements
by various cemetery groups
throughout the county, evident-
ly aimed at the large Jewish
population now in our area.
A Jewish cemetery must be
Jewish-controlled or owned to
insure that in future years the
owner will not fill in remaining
spaces with non-Jewish burials.
In Palm Beach County a Jew-
ish cemetery committee has
taken care of this need for many
years. It purchased sections in

But Zionism is racism!
For 20 vears in Jerusalem no
Jew could visit the Western
Wall, or any of the synagogues, (
cemeteries, or shrines of Juda-'
ism. When Jerusalem was lib-
erated, these sacred places of
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam ,
were opened to all, with eachj
group in charge of its own.
But Zionism is racism!
In 1948, when Jordan attack-
ed and captured the West Bank,
the Arabs who fled were placed
in refugee camps of clay and
squalor. When Israel regained
the West Bank in 1967. apart-
ment houses were built, jobs,
were given, and the refugee
camps abolished.
But Zionism is racism!
Today in all of Israel Arab
children attend the schools of
their choice. Arab leaders are
paid on the same scale as Jew-
ish teachers. Arab schools are
supplied with all of the features
of other schools. When they
they ware in Jordanian hands,
many of the schools were with-
out water and electricity.
But Zionism is racism!
When the Nations became
hostage to the Arab world, the
vote became the weapon with
which to rewrite history aad to

cance to the American visitors.
Just as we will be fortified by
you, you will be fortified by us.
We will be a stronger Israel and
you will be better Jews."
RECOGNIZING "the grievous
problems facing the people of
New York City" and the "severe
cutbacks the Jewish agencies
face in their extensive services
to the city's Jewish and general
population," the delegates
passed a resolution declaring
that it is "essential that respon-
sible federal legislation be
passed immediately to prevent
the financial default of New
York City."
Delegates and their constit-
uents were urged to contact
their Senators and Representa-
tives in Congress "to support
federal assistance such as is
embodied in resolutions cur-
rently before the House of Rep-
resentatives and the Senate
(HR 10481 and S 2615).
A related resolution by the
delegates called upon Presi-
dent Ford and Congress not to
place the burden for combating
inflation and recession on the
poorest and most victimized
members of the population,
pointing out both a 10 percent
reduction in the purchasing
power of the dollar and that the
Federal budget for the U.S. calls
for 45 percent reduction in pub-
lic assistance, Medicaid and
service in fiscal 1976.
It recommended that the gov-
ernment sponsor a five-point
"To carry out the intent of
the full EmDloyment Act, en-
acted in 1946;
"To extend Federal Unem-
ployment Insurance beyond the
present limitation;
"To develop legislation for
the Federal government to as-
sume total responsibility for in-
come maintenance programs
which will make possible decent
living standards;
"To expand the current
Food Stamp program not only
to those on cash assistance but
to the working poor as well.
"To enact a national health
insurance program."
REPORTING that Jewish Fed-
eration allocations to Jewish
education have increased by
"175 percent since 1976," the
delegates adopted a resolution
stating that the "quality and
effectiveness of Jewish educa-
tion is of the highest urgency
for Jewish communal life."
The resolution stated that
"Jewish schools are central to
the development of an informed
and committed Jewish commu-
nity" and that "there is grow-
ing reason that effective Jew-
ish education take place in
many settings."
Three noted scholars of the
five-day Assembly discussed
"Zionism: The Attack in the
United Nations and the Future
of the Jewish People."
The participants were Mr.
Emil Fackenheim, professor of
Philosophy at the University of
Toronto; Dr. Yehuda Bauer,
professor of the Hebrew Uni-
versity of Jerusalem; and Rabbi
Irving Greenberg, director of
the National Jewish Conference
Center, who served as G.A.
scholar-in-residence and headed
the convention's Shabbatom
program for delegates.
They discussed varying as-
pects and results in the short
period since passage of the
United Nations resolution.
THREE RELATED resolutions
on Zionism, terrorism and the
Arab boycott were also adopted.
The UN resolution equating
Zionism with racism was called
"a resurgence of virulent anti-
Semitism." Zionism was called
"the National Liberation Move-
ment of the Jewish people," and
the delegates decaring them-
selves as "prbud to identify
ourselves with the people of Is-
rael and to reaffirm our sup-
port for the Jewish religious
and cultural heritage that they
enshrine in nationhood."
Stating that the Jewish com-
munities of North America "do
not oppose Arab investments in
our countries," the resolution
on the Arab boycott declared
that "we will expose and combat
any use of such investments
that violate, that threaten basic
American democratic princi-
TERRORISM was bitterly
condemned and a resolution
called for "an international
compact of government to out-
law kidnapping, highjacking,
bombing, seizing hostages, as-
sassination, massacre, and other
barbaric practices which have
become frequent devices for
seeking political ends.''________
Red Penal Standards Shockingly Low
ditions in Soviet penal insti-
tutions "not only violate in-
ternational standards for the
treatment of prisoners, but
fail to achieve the standards
established in parts of do-
mestic corrective labor leg-
islation and theory," accord-
ing to a 154-page Amnesty
International report* ttiMUh-
ed here.
The illustrated report,
"Prisoners of Conscience in
the USSR: Their Treatment
and Conditions," shows how
many of the legal and penal
abuses are directed particu-
larly against political and
religious dissenters in the
Soviet Union.
THE REPORT charges that
"Jewish prisoners are frequent-
ly singled out for special abuse"
in Soviet prison and labor
camps, and quotes a statement
by a Jewish group of prisoners
in the Perm penal colony as
representative of many Jewish
prisoners' criticism on this sub-
Throughout, the report names
several well-known Jewish pris-
oners of conscience and dissen-
ters, such as Edward Kuznetsov,
Alexander Feldman, Alexander
Fainberg, Semyon Gluzman, Yo-
na Kolchinsky, Vladimir Bukov-
sky and Vladimir Gershuni, but
it does not deal with the plight
of Jewish prisoners or any
other minority as such.
INSTEAD, it arranges its evi-
dence and conclusions under
such headings as "articles of
Soviet criminal law which
restrict the exercise of funda-
mental human rights," "main-
tainance of prisoners" (giving
details of rations, "hunger re-

Committee for Hillel House
Gainesville has been formed to
provide funds for renovation
and expansion of the B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation facility
at the University of Florida,
Gainesville campus. Civil lead-
ers and concerned individuals
from throughout the state are
serving on the Committee for
Hillel House Gainesville.
The announcement was made
by Mike Teitelbaum, M.D.,
president of the Florida State
Association of B'nai B'rith
Lodges, which endorsed the
project at its state convention
last May.
This is a statewide commu-
nity effort to raise $250,000 to
refurbish and remodel the Hil-
lel House at Gainesville which
was constructed in 1953," Dr.
Teitelbaum said
Expansion of kitchen and din-
ing facilities, administrative
offices, classrooms and the li-
brary is planned.
"Today thara are more than
3,000 Jewish students op the
Gainesville aaanptia, and the 22-
year-old structure can no long-
er effectively serve as the guid-
ance, educational, jeligious and
social center it was designed
as," according to Rabbi Stanley
Ringler, Florida regional direc-
tor of the B'nai B'rith Hillel
Beginnings of the Hillel
House at Gainesville were
sparked during the early 1940's
by Daytona Beach attorney
Louis Ossinsky, Sr., Jacksonville
attorney Morris Whitten and
Dr. Mathew Drosdoff, a profes-
sor in the university's College
of Agriculture.
With the enrollment boom at
the University of Florida fol-
lowing World War II, the Flor-
ida State Association acquired
land for a Hillel facility to pro-
vide for the growing number or
JewUh students. When military

The continued growth of the
Jewish student population pre-
cipitated the need for a larger
and more permanent structure,
and a statewide Hillel House
building fund was established,
under the leadership of Ossin-
sky and Whitten, to raise funds
for the present facility.

Noting the absence of official
Soviet statistics on the subject,
the report estimates that there
are now at least 10,000 political
and religious prisoners in the
Soviet Union.

most detailed Amnesty has ever
produced on violations of hu-l
man rights in a single country,

typical Soviet prisoners of con-
science among them Jewish

after his Aliyah application.

In a series of recommenda-
tions at the end of the report,
Amnesty urges Soviet author-
ities to undertake a program of
penal reform, starting with a
public discussion of the present
AS LONG as the day-to-day
working of the Soviet penal sys-
tem is treated as a state secret,
the report says, it will continue
to "generate suspicion and mis-
trust, certainly abroad and to
some extent within the Soviet
Union itself."
Amnesty indicates that recent
reports emanating from the
USSR suggest that "political
abuses of psychiatry is still be-
ing applied by the Soviets1.'^
The report quotes at lehgrq'a
statement by a Jewish group of
prisoners in Perm to the effect
that "the camp authorities in-
culcate nationalistic conflicts
and agitate other inmates
against Jews. KGB officers
stress in their conversations
with non-Jewish inmates that
all nationalities of the USSR
must take a stand against Jews,
particularly in labor camps.
AMNESTY stresses that "the
open contempt with which the
convictions of prisoners of con-
science are treated is not con-
ducive to their reeducation in
the spirit desired by the law.
"On the contrary, political
prisoners' experiences in cor-
rective labor institutions usual-
ly strengthen their dissident
convictions *y providing what
they regard as corroboration of
their criticisms of institutional-
ized illegality and arbitrariness
in their country."

Question Box
Why is- saioida forbidden
ia Jewish- lattt
Generally speaking, one who
commits suicide defrk-t the en-
thority of the Almighty, who is
th* ultimate owner of both
min's body and his soul. The
Talmud (Baba Kama 91 :B) in-
terprets the verse in Genesis
(9i5) which states -I will seek
a reckoning for your blood" to
mean that the Almlghtv will
seek a reckoning from any man
who stnlte his own btoo4.4f.tae
general rule of Judaism is to
value life, this requirement in-
clades vektinfr one's own life.
AI person who dees not value
hil own life would have little
repaid for anyone else's life or
lilt in general. A question is
raised by some as to why
martyrdom would be allowed
whereas suicide would be pro-
hibited. They answer this by ex-
plaining that martyrdom is
somethina which is in conform-
ity with-God's wttt bemuse it
spares the desecration ofc His
majer coiaavindnx-nts. Suicide,
onthe-otlawihand, is not an act
in conformity with God's will
Martyrdom is an act of gen-
erosity where one offers his life
under certain circumstance
the DiTtne nurpose. Suicide, in
contrast, is a selfish act violat-
ing manV commitment to life
which was .prescribed bv the
Almighrv. A genuine suicide, if
it can be nroven'te be genuine,
would strip the deceased from
his rights of eulogv. mourning,
etc. However, consideration is'
usually given bv the rabbis to
the understanding that .whoever
commits suicide is mentally
disabled. Thus, he might be con-
sidered as acttng under the com-
pulsion' of* forces wtrtctt over-
come him and make- him ir-
responsible for his action* It.

TW(> NEW YORK Orthodox Jews, agreeing that Orthodox Jew
ry. as a communitv. is g.rurally ignored by radio and tele-
vision, have expressed totally opposing views about the proposi-
tion that steps should be taken to correct the situation.
The debaters were l>r. Bernard Fryshman. chairman of th;
enwvmsKion on legislation and civic action of Agudath Isri)e!
and Martin Waxman. a cradnatt of Mesifta Torah Vodaath. Iden-
tified as a freelance iotirnal'st and advertising topvwriter. Tht

Or Frvshman declared that "stories regarding malefactors w'i
happen to be Orthodox have grren the communitv an evt;e'* 1
bad image as a result of the absence of any positive exposure"
of the Orthodox community.
HE ALSO contended that styles and modes of behavior of
young people, us portreved on television, "never mirror the
sedate behavior of Orthodox Jewish young" and that there Was
"ample evidence that this has a negathe impact on some of
our young people."
He said that radio and TV officials, in respond to Questions
on the probljm. have said ther was no sine'^ J-nresentative ol
the Orthodox Jewish community and that "splinter groups 1
Orthodox Jews would demand "eowal time" fo-* their viewpoint-.
and that, to the degree that the Orthodox Jewhrh approach was
