GIL SEDAN

Vubstantial reduction of
I has been effected since
P and efficiency com-
as appointed by the
I Executive two years
| said that cut-backs are
in an effort to avoid
I duplication.
J told the Jewish Tele-
[Agency that the Jew-
' has 411 fewer em-
it had two years
[aid that 700 jobs had
"iwted and 400 em-
m retrenched in the
rilooe.
[THE net reduction in

r because 300 new em-
ert hired. Rivlin ex-
|*t the new employes
were engaged only after a thor-
ough examination by the effi-
ciency committee determined
that they were essential.
He cited as additional cost-
cutting measures a 25 percent
reduction in mileage allowances
for Jewish Agency and World
Zionist Organization employes
required to travel, a reduction
in missions abroad by WZO of-
ficials, and a half million dol-
lar saying in the operation of
the Agency's European offices.
RIVLIN ALSO noted that all
publications in connection with
Israel's 28th Independence Day
celebrations were published by
a single office to eliminate du-
plication.
The efficiency committee, ap-
pointed by Leon Dulzin while
he was Jewish Agency and WZO
Executives acting chairman, is
headed by Moshe Haskel.
PUBUC DEBATE OUT
Private f
Dissent
Seen Okay
By YTTZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) Rep-
resentative members of the
American Jewish community
overwhelmingly support "free
expression of the widest variety
of views and opinions on Israel's
policies." At the same time, they
believe such expressions should
be confined to the Jewish com-
munity lest they "give aid and
comfort" to Israel's enemies.
That consensus was reported
here by Rabbi Alexander M.
Schindler. chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations.
RABBI SCHINDLER disclos-
ed at a press conference at Jew-
ish Agency headquarters here
that the Presidents Conference
held a meeting last week with
more than 100 representatives
of Jewish groups, including
"hawks" and "doves," in an ef-
fort to ascertain the attitude
within the American Jewish
community with respect to Is-
rael's policies.
At that meeting. Rabbi Eu-
gene Borowitz, of Hebrew Union
College, a member of the "dove-
ish" Breira group, spoke in

NON-LABOR OPPOSfTKW WANGLE
Movement to Dump Beigin
TEL AVIV (JTA) A movement appears to be
developing within Likud for the retirement of its veteran
leader Menachem Beigin. Beigin, who heads the party's
Herut faction, has been asked, in several articles and pam-
phlets published recently, to step down so that others may
become spokesmen for the non-Labor opposition.
These suggestions are emanating from personalities in
the Liberal and Free Center factions of the Likud coalition.
Prior to the establishment of Likud after the Yom Kippur
War, the Liberals and Herut comprised the Gahal alignment
which was In opposition to the Labor Alignment.
COL. (RES.) YAACOV AGASSI, a member of the Free
Center's political committee, wrote this week that "with all
due respect to Beigin, he has to vacate his place as leader
of the opposition after failing eight times to bring the oppo-
sition to victory" in national elections.
The Jerusalem branch of the Liberal Party published
an article by Chaim Dinnerman who said that many do not
regard Beigin as a political leader but rather as an idealist
who cannot change his views to fit changing conditions.

Military Court
Acquits Levinger
Of Obstruction
JERUSALEM (JTA) A Ramallah military court
has acquitted Rabbi Moshe Levinger, leader of the Kiryat
Arba community, of charges that he had prevented Israeli
soldiers from fulfilling their duties during Arab disturb-
ances in neighboring Hebron last Mar. 13.
The charges developed out of an altercation between
Levinger and Lt. Giora Streichmann when the latter asked
Levinger and a group of Kiryat Arba residents to leave
Hebron.
LT. COL. GERSHON ORION, presiding officer of the
court, ruled that Levinger and his followers had not caused
any provocation and that, as civilians and residents of the
area, they were not obliged to obey the orders of a junior
officer. He found further that Lt. Streichmann had insulted
Levinger.
However, the court advised the army that at times of
tension such as occurred in Hebron ast March, Kiryat Arba
residents should not be permitted to enter the neighboring
Arab town. Levinger saw his acquittal as proof "once again
that settlements on the West Bank are important."

N.Y. Assembly Bill
Bans Non-Kosher
Mezuzos Sale
ALBANY, N.Y. A for-
ward step in the protection
of the religious Jewish con-
sumer from being victimiz-
ed by consumer fraud re-
garding religious articles
took place this week, when
the New York State Assem-
bly passed a bill introduced
by Assemblyman Leonard
Silverman.
The bill, which was draft-
ed at the initiative of the
Commission on Legislation
and Civic Action of Agudath
Israel of America, clearly
spells out as a violation of
the state's business laws the
sale of Mezuzos or Tefilin
(phylacteries) which do not
comply with Halacha (Jew-
ish law).
THE CONSUMER fraud pro-
tection bill on Mezuzos and
phylacteries, which is now be-
fore the New York Senate, seeks
to out an end to what Rabbi
Moshe Sherer, executive presi-
dent of Agudath Israel of Amer-
ica, described as the "wholesale
deception of unwary Jewish pur-
chasers of Mezuzos and Tefilin,
who are sold such articles
which have no religious signi-
ficance whatsoever, because
they do not conform with Hala-
cha."
According to Jewish law]
Mezuzah, as well as the pi
ments of Tefilin (phylacteri
must be handwritten by a i
according to precise sp
tions on a piece of parch
Agudath Israel has _
affidavits from purchaser!
Mezuzos which, upon in
tion, were printed by
.etter press on regular paper|
THE SILVERMAN bill
cifies that a merchant whoi
a Mezuzah which does not i
form with Halacha must
the purchaser written notiS
tion at the time of sale that I
Mezuzah does not meet the Je
ish religious requirer
otherwise, he is guilty of
representation and violates
business laws of the state.

French Opportunism
It is interesting to note that while President Kat-
zir was visiting Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister
Callaghan in London last week, in Paris Israel's Health
Minister Victor Shemtov was being entertained by Pre-
mier Jacques Chirac.
On its face, this seems like a rosy diplomatic sit-
uation. Actually, the Shemtov visit was in lieu of a
trip to France by President Katzir after Katzir can-
celled it early in May.
The cancellation came when he made public the
plans for his arrival by President Valery Giscard
D'Estaing. To put it bluntly, Katzir accused D'Estaing
of snubbing him.
Of course, quite properly, the French denied that
any snub was intended. But the fact is that Katzir did
not change his mir..'..
The fact is that France continues her crude dip-
lomacy in Europe and the Middle East, betraying al-
lies left and right and cozying up to the Arabs when-
ever she can.
The Meloy Murder
Apart from the tragedy itself there is a lesson to
be learned in the senseless murder of U.S. Ambassador
Meloy in Lebanon last week.
For one thing it emphasizes what we have said in
these columns countless times before and that has still
to sink into the minds of observers of the civil war
there: that the war is not a religious war but a Leftist
revolution.
For another, it defines the extent of terrorism as
an instrument of the Arab activist.
If by now it is still not understood why Israel con-
tinues to occupy the territories she conquered in the
1967 war, if by now there still are flatulent politicians
around and opportunistic journalists who continue to
call Israel's position "intransigent," then surely the
Meloy murder, as well as the murders of his economic
advisor and chauffeur, ought to explain it.
The fact is that the Arab war against Israel is mere-
ly one arena in the larger Leftist struggle in the Middle
East. Israel has refused to evacuate territories without
a basic statement of principle from her Arab opponents
that they are finally willing to acknowledge the right of
Israel to exist as a free and independent nation.
Absurdists on the international political scene, in-
cluding diplomats and dense journalists, who fail to
recognize the relationship between the ceding of terri-
tory and the recognition principle, also fail to under-
stand the larger Arab revolutionary design for the Mid-
dle East that not even the Arab petrobillionaires, who
would fall like Israel would fall should the revolution-
aries win, are prepared to acknowledge publicly.
The Meloy murder teaches the lesson. Now it must
be learned. Those who fail to learn it, particularly the
Ford administration, do the Russians' work, for it is only
they who stand to gain from continuing terrorism in the
Middle East.
A United American Jewry
Rabbi Arthur Hertzberg, president of the American
Jewish Congress, has recently pointed out that Zionism
and support of Israel have become the "religion" of
American Jewry.
In fact, Hertzberg noted that being an anti-Zionist
Jew is almost "an excommunicable offense" in the Amer-
ican Jewish community. "You can eat 'chazir' on Yom
Kippur, but you can be excommunicated in any small
Jewish community for not giving to the UJA," he
quipped.
There is some truth in the last facetious remark.
While the majority of American Jews may be lacking in
the knowledge of Zionist ideology purists demand, there
is no question of their support for the State of Israel.

Jewish Intellectuals Frozen Ou
Number 14
4 TAMUZ 5736
The Jewish intellectual is not
much of a factor in shaping
Jewish establishment policy, as
I have written before. The only
reason I am going to cover
some of the same ground again
is a disturbing article by Peter
Steinfels in last week's issue of
Commonweal, the Catholic li-
beral publication which stands
roughly in intellectual relation-
ship of those religionists as
Commentary (once upon a time)
did to Jews.
Steinfels posed the question:
"Do We Netd a New Cold War?"
and while mentioning names
like Ronald Reagan. Henry Kis-
singer and William Buckley as
those who would answer that
in the affirmative, he tells us
the "most articulate and sophis-
ticated spokesmen have been
the neo-conservative intellectu-
als grouped around Commentary
and the Public Interest."
A RELATIVELY small group,
they have "exceptional in-
fluence" because of the high
quality of their argument in
contrast to the usual conserva-
tive thought.
For those who might not fol-
low this small group, it's headed
by men like Norman Podhoretz,
Irving Kristol, Nathan Glazer
and several rabbis like Jakob
Petuchowski and Seymour Sie-
gel. If the addition of Daniel
Patrick M o y n i h a n seems
strange, it's the company he en-
ioys most, and the Jewish vote
he will get in the New York
primary contest for United
States Senator will only confirm
his wisdom.
From the viewpoint of these
neo-conservatives, a Cold War
has much to be said for it
writes Steinfels.
WOULD IT not. for in-
stance, administer the coup de
grace to the New Left and New
Politics enemies against whom
Commentary has been obses-
sively campaigning for years
just as McCarthyism, according
EDWARD
COHEN
to Podhoretz. did to the pro-
Soviet and anti-interventionist
liberals of the postwar periods?
And even as McCarthyism ac-
complished more than its os-
tensible aim, so would a new
bout of the Cold War. The over-
critical media would be brought
into line. The legitimacy of in-
stitutions, claims of authority,
and habits of discipline would
be at least temporarily strength-
ened. Guilt would be relieved as
we contrasted America with the
enemv overseas, and intellect-
ual dissent would be either
quieted or isolated."
While that's pretty hairy
enough for me, Steinfels raises
a question near the close of his
oiece which gives a particular
focus for all of us.
"What would be the impact
of a Cold War on the situation
of American Jews?" he asks.
AND MAINTAINS that "The
question is appropriate because
many of the neo-conservatives
are Jewish, and issues like black
anti-Semitism, the effect of
Quotas and affirmative action on
Jewish interests, and the Inter-
national isolation of Israel have
nlayed a critical role in their
political evolution."
He answers that: "Domestical-
ly. Jews might have more to lose
from a turning inward of Amer-
ica than from nationalist turn-
ing outward.
"Periods of intense national-
ism have usually been threaten-
ing to the Jewish community.
Indeed Nathan Glazer specifi-
cally expressed the fear
post-Vietnam and post-191
backlash might find
Jewry particularly vulner
identified as it often has
with political dissent and
tural innovation." Since
fear was not borne oml
events, Glazer added that j
Jewish community's
point of exposure was its 1
attachment to tha-^incr
precarious safety of
cause for which non-.
Americans might grow i
to sacrifice."
THE OBVIOUS strategy,)
en this mind-set, is to pli
rael under the general
ican policy of defending
pendent and democratic i
worldwide. The Cold War
drome is the logical result,
is an alliance between

"""TiD to several young wom-
en. Those who know the Speak-
er say his interest in them has
been strictly fatherly. One of
them, Susan Bergman, is a
smiling young disciple of the
Korean religious -political cul-
tist, Rev. Son Myung Moon.
Almost every morning, the
Moon girl greets the Speaker in
the hallway outside his office
and presents him with flowers.
Then she spends a quiet hour
with him, brewing ginseng tea
and teaching Moon's philosophy.
Sometimes, Albert gives her a
lift in his government limousine.
The Speaker also arranged a
special visa so another young
woman, Grace Chen, could work
in his office. Not long after-
ward, he turned up in his own
car to help her move to a new
apartment.
NO ONE was ever questioned
Albert's integrity, his fairness,
his decency. Yet he had been
losing his hold on the House.
There was a lag to his step, a
slump to his shoulders that
weren't there before.
He tended to brood and was
depressed for days after his son,
David, asked him point blank:
"Dad. is your job so important
to you that you don't have time
for us?"
Not long afterward, the Speak-
er began to talk about retiring.
He finally made up his mind
last week. Close friends say it
was the first time in weeks they
had seen him smile and relax.

Arab Resolution
I
WASHINGTON The na-

(NOW) has passed a resolu-
tion condemning the UN res-
oution equating Zionism with
fascism.
Terming the UN action a
"call to world wide anti -
Semitism," the NOW board
urges President Ford and
Congress to take all steps
necessary to make the U.S.
position clear to the rest of
the world.
THE NOW resolution reads:
"Whereas NOW is dedicated to
the eradication of sexist and
racist discrimination wherever
they are found, Be it resolved
that the United Nations organ-
ization, created to further under-
standing among nations of
peace in the world, by its recent
adoption of a resolution declar-
ing Zionism to be a form of
fascism, and racial discrimina-
tion has breached its trust to
people of the world by a call to
world-wide hatred of an ethnic
minority over 50 percent of
whom are women.
"BE IT further resolved that
NOW commend those who have
taken a position against this
sexism and racism.
"Be it further resolved that
NOW urges the President and
Congress of the United States
to take every and all actions nec-
essary to manifest to the world
the unwavering position of the
U.S. against this call to world-
wide anti-Semitism."

JERUSALEM (JTA)
Coalition Knesset members of
all political persuasions have
expressed strong opposition to
the extradition of Tuvya
Schwartz, an immigrant from
the United States who is want-
ed in California for the alleged
fire-bombing of a car that be-
longed to the brother of a sus-
pected Nazi war criminal.
Justice Minister Haim Zadok
told the Knesset that he has re-
turned California's extradi-
tion request to Sacramento be-
cause it was incomplete and
has asked for supplementary in-
formation.

General Chairman Frank R. Lautenberg during the UJA's

present at the luncheon recalled Mrs. Meir's special
mission from David Ben-Gurion in 1948: to raise $50
million in cash from the American Jewish community
on behalf of the people of Israel. Twenty-eight years
later, the American Jewish community pledged to match
last year's campaign total and undertook a cash collec-

SCHWARTZ, 23, was arrested
in Los Angeles on Jan. 29, 1975,
along with a friend, David Whit-
law. Both were accused of fire-
bombing the car of John Artu-
kovic, a San Francisco contrac-
tor, whose brother, Andrea Ar-
tukovic, is believed to have
served as Interior Minister of
the Nazi puppet state of Croatia
during World War n.
The latter is held responsible
for mass deportations of Jews
and others. Whitlaw was tried
and sentenced to a prison term.
Schwartz jumped bail the day
after his arrest and fled to Is-
rael where he has since mar-
ried and joined the army. He is
an Israeli citizen residing in
Beersheba.
ACCORDING to Israel law,
the courts must decide whether
a person is extraditable. The
Justice Minister, however,
makes the decision as to whe-
ther to bring a case before the
courts and has the authority to
reverse the court's decision
either for or against extradition.
Several MKs urged Zadok not
to bring the Schwartz case to
the courts. Avraham Melamed.

Mrs. Katzir at lunch at Windsor
Castle. The Israeli head
of state arrived here Friday for
a week-long private visit to
Britain, the first to this country
by an incumbent President of

Katzir, who is a biochemist,
will be among the scientists de-
livering papers at the sympo-

won the 1945 Nobel Prize at
the age of 39.
He shared it with Sir How-

curative properties of penciLUn
which was discovered by an-
other Nobel Laureate, Sir Alex-

PRESIDENT and Mrs. Katzir
attended Sabbath services at
the Marble Arch Synagogue.
Katzir was presented with a sil-
ver plate by Rabbi Maurice
Unterman, son of the late Is-

I fljL AVIV (JTA) Cer-
Lin factors in Lebanon appear
7be mounting an effort to
' Israel into the Lebanese
^flict an involvement they
uld expect to have a unify-
effect on Moslems and
vistian Arabs who would for-
their own strife and close
Lnlu against Israel.
ftlis became increasingly ap-
krent in a report from the El
fatah radio in Beirut claiming
iat Syrian forces have crossed
be Litani River in Southern
Lebanon. Another report ema-
Bting from Beirut placed the
Syrians in Marj Ayoun, a Leba-
iese township just north of the
jjneli town of Metullah.
ALL VISUAL evidence at-
inable from the Israeli side of
j line indicates that this re-
iort is completely false. Marj
hyoun. plainly visible from Is-
rael, hardly resembles a cap-
ured town. Life went on ac-
rding to the normal routine
here.
Farmers were out in their
folds, shepherds were tending
Kheir flocks and civilian traffic
pis heavy as usual on Lebanese
oads paralleling the Israeli
(order where many vehicles
arried vegetables and fruit to
pillage markets.
Southeastern Lebanon, in
ct, appears to be the only
laceful region of that country
id is still obviously in die
inds of local Lebanese forces,
ftists and El Fatah.
The complex situation in Leb-
ioo continues to take new
sts. The poor showing to date
[if the Syrian army against Leb-
anese leftists and Palestinian
Brrorists is arousing bitterness
n the Syrian officers' corps to-
ward President Hafez Assad.
RABBI SCHINDLER, who is
cheduled to leave for meetings
n Israel at the end of the month,
tailed on President Ford and
lall candidates for the Presi-

cuse him of a "no win" policy
At the same time, Israeli cir-
cles are concerned that the ter
rorists, primarily of El Fatah,
may view their success against
the sluggish Syrian drive as
proof that they are capable of
taking on a regular army.
This could lead them to un-
dertake bolder incursions
against Israel once the Leba-
nese conflict is settled, circles
here say. Assad's Lebanese ad-
venture is, indeed, costing him
a high price in blood and pres-
tige.
Under severe pressure from
other Arab states not to go
down in history as the "butcher
of the Palestinians," he has
ordered the Syrian forces to
avoid direct confrontation with
leftists and terrorist groups.
The latter are under no re-
straints to go easy on the Syr-
ian invaders.
SYRIA HAS suffered several
hundred casualties in the past
few weeks and has lost scores
of tanks to the leftists and Pal-
estinians. Hardest hit are units
of the Syrian-sponsored Al Sai-
qa terrorists and the Palestine
Liberation Army battalions
fighting on the Syrian side.
According to some reports,
Al Saiqa is all but decimated
and many of its units have de-
serted and joined the leftists.
Disgruntled Syrian army offi-
cers blame Assad for handicap-
ping the movement of his army
in Lebanon.
Moreover, the reverses suf-
fered by Damascus in Lebanon
through the strategy of piece-
meal penetration, has forced
Assad to pull troops away from
his poorly defended border with
JERRY HARTMAN
Hartman Named
Investment Firm
Vice President
Jerry B. Hartman has been
elected vice president-sales of
Bache Halsey Stuart, an inter-
national investment firm and
member of die New York and
all other leading stock ex-
changes.
Hartman, a graduate of the
University of Florida and the
New York Institute of Finance,
has been associated with Bache
Halsey Stuart as an account
executive in the Palm Beach
office for seven years.
In addition to serving on the
board of directors of the Jew-
ish Family and Children's Serv-
ice, Hartman is a member of
Temple Beth El and a former
member of the board of direc-
tors of the Jewish Federation.
This newly created title and
nosition is awarded only to
those Bache Halsey Stuart ac-
count executives who have dis-
tinguished themselves profes-
sionally and made a meaningful
contribution to their commu-
nities.
Hartman is also the financial
reoorter for WPEC-TV Channel
12 in West Palm Beach and
WPBR radio in Palm Beach. He
lives with his wife, Esther, and
their four children in Palm
Beach Gardens.
Iraq and from the Golan Heights
front.
THE IRAQIS meanwhile, have
massed troops on the Syrian
border. The recent approach
by Syrian forces to the peri-
meter of the so-called Fatah-
land, the former terrorist
stronghold in southeastern Leb-
anon adjacent to Israel, was
viewed by Israeli observers not
as a threat to Israel but a large-
scale detour to avoid a direct
clash with El Fatah.
The Syrians took over the
Rashiyah-al-Wadi road junction
which opened the way for a
move southward to the Israeli
border. But their intent obvi-
ously is to supply their belea-
guered forces around the Leba-
nese port of Sidon. The Syrians
have been unable to capture
any of their major targets
neither Sidon, Tripoli nor Bei-
rut itself.

Hayim Nahman Bialik
By RABBI WILLIAM SHAPIRO
Temple Beth El
West Palm Beach
Our Talmud sages say that
our ancestor Jacob, in his own
personal life, had all the experi-
ences his descendants would
face as a people in later cen-
turies: the search for one God
and the challenge of living by
His demands, the problem of
being like or unlike others, the
pressure of enemies, the need
for a homeland, an exile, a re-
turn.
In the coffin, in Tel Aviv's
Bet Am, in 1934, lay the body
of another such man one of
the most loved and honored
Jews of modern times. He was
the world renowned Hebrew
poet, Hayim Nahman Bialik.
Bialik grew up in a typical
small Jewish town of Russia,
isolated, rigidly Orthodox. Men-
tally, Jews still lived as if in
early Medieval days. The con-
tents of the Talmud were their
main study and guide; its rab-
bis were their heroes; its stories
their literature. They knew lit-
tle about the upheavals of the
previous 200 years: revolutions,
science, industry, democracy.
He was a rebellious child, al-

ways in trouble for his disobe-
dience and pranks. But he was
brilliant and soon mastered all
of traditional Jewish scholar-
ship. When he was 13, no one
else in the town knew enough
to be his teacher and he be-
came the community's dayyan,
or judge, to whom people
brought their ritual questions
to be answered from the Tal-
mud and law codes.
HE WAS lonely and unhap-
py, sensing something more to
life, something bigger going on
somewhere "outside." No one
understood or appreciated his
secret dreams and imaginings,
the little stories and poems he
tried to write down, his love of
nature and freedom.
At 16 he was allowed to at-
tend a yeshiva (Talmud acad-
emy) in another town. Here he
found students actually reading
the forbidden books, hiding
them inside the large volumes
of the Talmud and its commen-
taries. He joined a secret so-
ciety organized both to study
these books and to spread Zion-
ism.
From the unknown clerk in
his tiny unknown town came
moving and powerful poetry .
noetry that fired the imagina-
tion and the spiirt of every Jew
who read it. Love poems and
nature Doems; evocative poems
recalling ancient Jewish heroes
and the beauty of traditional
Jewish life.
WITHIN a few years Bialik
was an acknowledged Jewish
world leader. He founded his
own firm, publishing Hebrew
literature, textbooks and refer-
ence books. He wrote a series
of "Poems of Wrath." upbraid-
ing his own people for their
cowardice during pogroms, for
accepting their miserable lives
without complaint or rebellion,
for not answering the call of
Zionism and Palestine.
Bialik was a world Zionist
leader when he finally settled
in Palestine in 1921. He travel-
ed everywhere to speak and
campaign for Zionist organiza-
tions. Hebrew studies and his
own Dublishing projects.
Jews loved Bialik. and still
love his memory, for his per-
sonal charm, humor and kind-
ness; for his poetry, stories and
essays; for his service to the
Jewish people. But most of all,
nerhans. we love him because
his life faithfully reflects our
people's history for a hundred
vears.
Korah
"And the earth opened her mouth, and swal-
lowed them up and all the men that appertain-
ed unto Korah" (Num. 16:32).
KORAH Korah, son of Izhar. and Dathan and
Abiram, sons of Eliab, led a rebellion of 2S0 men who
refused to accept the leadership of Moses and Aaron.
Moses tried in vain to persuade them that all was being
done according to God's will. Finally, God Himself acted.
"And it came to pass that the ground did cleave as-
under that was under them. And the earth opened her
mouth, and swallowed them up, and their households,
and all men that appertained unto Korah, and all their
goods. So they went down alive into the pit; and the
earth closed upon them, and they perished from among
the assembly And fire came forth from the Lord,
and devoured the two hundred and fifty men" (Num-
bers 16:31-35). To prove that Aaron had indeed been
chosen by God for his priestly function, Moses instruct-
ed every tribe to place its rod near the Ark of the Cove-
nant; miraculously, Aaron's rod sprouted. Thus ended
the controversy over the priesthood. The portion pro-
ceeds to describe the various emoluments that the priests
and LeVites received.
By RABBI DR. SAMUEL J. FOX
Question: What is the signifi-
cance of the T z 11 z 11 h "
(fringes) which are attached
to the four corners of the Ta-
llin?
Answer: The Bible itself says
that these fringes are to be look-
ed upon so that one will re-
member "all the commandments
of the Almighty and do them"
(Numbers 15:39). The blue
fringe, which was originally in-
cluded among the number of
fringes (but which is not now
included because of the doubt
as to the exact shade of blue
originally required), was said to
be symbolic of the blue color
of the heaven, which was con-
sidered the vault of the Al-
mighty.
In this respect, the Jew wrap-
ped in his Talith feels himself
to be wrapped up in the splen-
dor of the Almighty. It has also
been suggested that the word
"Tzitzith" comes from the root
"to peer" or "to look." This
would indicate that the fringes
give man a perspective from
which to look out into the world.
It enables man to get a clear
look through the clouds of con-
fusion that sometimes distort
his outlook on life.
The fact that the fringes are
equally distributed on the four
corners of the Talith seems to
imply that by their means man
can gain a balanced vision in-
stead of prejudiced outlook
on the world.
Question: Why is there tradi-
tionally a black or blue num-
ber of stripes that run across
the Talith?
Answer: The main item of the
Talith are its fringes. Those
fringes originally contained a
thread of blue as a symbol of
the royalty of the Almighty
balanced by the white, which
symbolized purity. Since the
blue thread is no longer used
because of our unanswered
question as to what the original
shade of blue was, a stripe of
black or blue runs across the
Talith to remind us of the orig-
inal thread of blue required for
the fringes.
Some insist on black, either
because of blue stripe might
lead one to believe that this was
the original shade of blue or
because the black is a symbol
of mourning for the destroyed
Temple which was the reason
for our ignorance of the exact
shade of blue.
Some, in a strange way, claim
that the mixture of black or
blue with the white cloth in-
dicates that no man is com-
pletely Dure and innocent, i.e.,
completely white.

RABBI NORMAN T. MENDEL
Temple Beth El, Boca Raton
In Jewish life we so often
think of summertime as a per-
iod of hiatus from Jewish life.
Somehow we feel that since we
are attuned to summer vaca-
tions, God takes spiritual re-
spite during the summer also.
Such is simply not true. The
summer provides uniquely for
us the opportunity to think,
read, meditate and recharge
our spiritual batteries so that
we may light the way to a
meaningful New Year in the
fall.
In an unhurried manner we
can utilize this summer season
to grow spiritually. Temples
and synagogues throughout the
area are open in the summer

and your loved ones a peri

I took the Hand of God to use
as if it were their own hand to
punish those who saw God in
other than fairy tale terms for
the crib and for the swaddled
mind of the nursery.
They killed Jews by the un-
told millions throughout his-
tory.
To judge by these paragraphs
I have just read, Torquemada
is not dead. He and his hire-
lings are still trying to do their
thing.
THE TEXT in which I read
these paragraphs about God
and Jesus and Hell includes
several illustrations: among
them, a lone Star of David and
then a second Star of David,
miniaturized, upon a cross.
The second Star of David
hangs crucified, we are meant
to understand, in the same way
that Jesus was crucified.
THE LESSON that emerges
is the lesson I was taught a
thousand times as a youngster
on the streets of northern cities
by the fists of a thousand name-
less, faceless, anonymous, hate-
filled children themselves
taught the lesson by their par-
ents of the "new Judaism" cru-
cified upon a cross of Jewish
"obstinacy" that "rejected" Je-
sus who "promises Heaven and
forgives vou for breaking God's
laws."
God, of course, is Jehovah,
whom Christians in their zeal-
ous theft of our literature, his-
tory, customs, theology, phil-
osophy and religion, love to de-
fine for us as "wrathful," "pu-
nitive" and a whole bunch of
other nonsensical things.
The clincher in the para-
graphs I read is this: "For fur-
ther research and development,
consult a modern version (writ-
ten in today's language rather
than a language not spoken
for hundreds of years) of the
Holy Bible, Old and New Tes-
tament."

The worker injured in an
accident even if there was
contributory negligence on his
part will automatically sue
the employer's insurance com-
pany, as well as the employer
himself. The nandatory insur-
ance policy v.:i ensure that the
employee gets his compensa-
tion fully and quickly.
UNDER THE existing law,
the injured worker must sue
his boss not always with
prompt or satisfactory results.
And the maximum compensa-
tion he can obtain is on the
order of IL 18,000 on the West
Bank, and even less in the
Gaza Strip.
Labor Minister Moshe Ba-
ram, explaining the new legis-
lation, said it reflects Israel's
humanitarian concern to ad-
vance the welfare of the local
population.
Employers will be able to
choose either Israeli or local
West Bank insurance com-
panies, the Minister said. Jor-
danian or Egyptian companies
will also be considered pro-
vided they submit applications
to the controller of insurance
companies and provided they
prove they have adequate as-
sets to meet claims.
WEST BANK and Gaza Strip
workers who are employed
across the "Green Line" (in-
side Israel proper) are, of
course, covered by the Israeli
National Insurance System, to
which employer and employee
must contribute by law.
This offers substantially high-
er compensation for injury but,
as Minister Baram pointed out,
the fair comparison to be made
is between the new legislation
and the previous provisions in
the areas themselves, not in Is-
rael.

The Israeli National Insur-
ance Institute pays out injury
compensation in the form of
ongoing pension (up to 75 per-
cent of wages) rather than in
the form of a lump sum. But,
said Baram, it had been decided
to stick to the previous lump-
sum system in the areas, rather
than introduce a wholly new
pension system.
BARAM AND his aides es-
timated that the new legislation
would provide for coverage for
some 60.000 persons who are
wage earners working in the
occupied areas.
Failure by an employer to in-
sure against work accidents will
be punishable by prison terms
and fines and the legislation

employed inside Israel had been

Canadians Attack
Use of Phones
For Bigots' Calls
By BEN KAYFETZ
TORONTO (JTA) Attorney General Roy McMur-
try of Ontario has called on public figures to speak out
against the use of telephone facilities to propagate anti-
Semitism and other bigotry.
Speaking before the lawyers division of the Israel Bond
Drive, McMurtry noted that Toronto residents can dial
taped messages that attack Jews and Blacks.
"To me it is intolerable that the facilities of a public
monopoly such as the Bell System should be available to
hate-mongers and bigots for the propagation of their slan-
der," he said.
"BUT THE Bell Telephone Co. says there is nothing
we can do under existing law." The Attorney General said
he had proposed legislation to alter this situation. But, he
stressed, "laws alone cannot do it," public figures must
speak out.
"Minding your own business is no virtue at all when
liars and bigots are poisoning the air. To keep quiet is to
hand them a victory," he said. McMurtry's campaign pos-
ters were defaced with Swastikas when he ran for office
eight months ago. ______
ence to Latin for the New Tes-
tament unspoken not for
hundreds, but for thousands of
years (an example in itself of
the multitude of inaccuracies in
which Christian commentators
indulge when they talk about
the Bible).
But Hebrew for the Old? Is
Hebrew not spoken today? Is
it not the mucilage that for two
millenia and more bound Jews
to the very past that the thieves
thought they stole from us?
Are the writers of these par-
agraphs saying a modern ver-
sion is more faithful to the orig-
inal than the original itself?
THAT IS exactly what Chris-
tianity has been telling us, for
example, about Isaiah, their fa-
vorite prophet, since first
Christianity usurped him and
corrupted him to suit them-
selves.
Just as I have no intention
of attempting to deal with the
answer to the question of who
and what God is, I really have
no intention of fighting that old
fight here between Jewish and
Christian viewpoints concern
ing just what Judaism is.
All I want to say is that these
paragraphs, these sentiments I
have just read, offend me. They
are anti-Semitic, replete with
all the mildew of anti-Semitism
lying on them like a fungus on
what purports to be the human
intellect divinely inspired.
AND SO the crux of the mat-
ter is not really what the par-
agraphs say I have heard
that song before but with
where I found them.
I was driving through the
exit gates of Miami Interna-
tional Airport on a lovely 7 a.m.
morning the other day. I paid
my toll and was handed a free
bilingual magazine called
"Places" ("Lugares").
"Places" is published by In-
formation Publication Corpora
tion and by "The Grace of
God," who lives at PO Box 59-
3178, Miami.
MIAMI International Airport
is part of the Miami Port Au-
thority, which is financed by
my taxes. I do not want my
taxes to contribute to the dis-
semination of such tomfoolery.
I suspect the publishers mean
no offense in reproducing these
ancient malevolent canards. As
"The Grace of God," they are
merely passing on His word as
they see it just like the kids
on the streets used to pass it
on with their fists, their knees,
their feet when I was young.
But not as I see it, and that's
the point. "The Grace of God"
is entitled to do what it chooses
on their own premises, not on
the public's.
Since when has the Miami
Port Authority gone evangel-
ical?

Value Added Tax Brings Big Buying Spree
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Pre-
tending they don't face one of
their worst economic crises
ever, behaving as if they can
own the world, many Israelis
are out on the streets again this
week shoooins.
They buy whatever is in sight
giving inflation another boost.
The reason for this latest buy-
ing spree is fear of a general
price increase July 1, when the
latest threat to the Israeli
nocketbook, the value added tax,
is introduced.
THE VALUE added tax is a
relatively new invention of the
international community of mas-
terminds advising governments
in their tax operations. At the
present it exists in some 20
countries, among them mem-
bers of the European Common
Market and other European
countries, countries in North
Africa and Latin America. The
institution of VAT in Common
Market Countries was one of
the reasons for its introduction
in Israel.
Although Israeli merchants
and businessmen already com-
plain that they are thoroughly
confused by regulations regard-
ing the new tax, it is actually
quite simple.
VAT is an indirect tax im-
posed on almost any expense,
it each stage of the economic
process production, market-
ing and consumption. Its exact
rate is to be determined by the
Finance Minister this week,
probably between 8 and 10 per-
cent.
VAT GOT its name because
it is imposed only on the value
added between the price of pro-
duction and the price of sale.
The vendor does not transfer
the entire tax deducted to the
Treasury. He deducts the tax
he himself had to pay when he
bought the raw material to
manufacture the article in ques-
tion.
Thus, it is eventually the cus-
tomer who pays the entire tax.
But the Treasury enjoys the
intermediary payments.
For example, an importer
buys wood for IL 100, which,
assuming a 10 percent VAT.
would carry a IL 10 tax. A car-
penter purchases the wood for
IL 150 and navs the importer
an extra IL IS. Now the import-
er does not pass on the entire
IL 15 to the Treasury but de-
ducts the IL 10 he paid when
he imported the wood and pays
onlv IL 15 to the Treasury.
This chain repeats itself at
later stages, with each link re-
ceiving tax returns until the
final product reaches the cus-
tomer who pays the entire
tax.
ADVOCATES of VAT say it is
the best choice of all possible
turnover taxes and they cite a
number of arguments to support
this claim. But it seems that the
main advantage of the new tax
is that it is expected to bring
a lot of money into the money-
hungry Treasury.
Mordechai Bareket. deputy
director general of Customs and
Excise, who is in charge of op-
erating the new tax, said in
an interview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that on the
basis of the 1975 annual State
budget, each percentage of tax
raised would mean IL 600 mil-
lion for the government's cof-
fers.
In other words, if the tax is
set at 10 percent, it will account
for an injection of IL 6 billion.
But the net sum to be expected
is some IL 2.5 billion which has
been calculated in this year's
IL 85 billion budget. The plan-
ned abolition of purchase and
other indirect taxes accounts
for the n. 3.5 billion difference.
BAREKET does not expect an
immediate price rise beyond 6-7
percent. Not everything must go
ufi, he told JTA. Textiles, for
example, now carry a 30 per-
cent sales tax. If the sales tax
is cancelled, or reduced, tex-
tiles will actually be cheaper.
"But this," he said, "also de-
nends on the behavior of the
nublic. A rush by the public to
Fhe stores will only make it
easier for the store-keepers to
raise their prices beyond the
value added tax rate."
ACCORDING to David Peled,
Barek et's predecessor, "In
branches in which demand is
flexible, it can be expected that
a considerable part of the tax
will be absorbed by the man-
ufacturers, so that the price rise
will only be partial."
The new tax is intended to
serve as an incentive for ex-
porters, since exports are not
taxable. The exporter is en-
titled to a return of the tax he
paid in order to manufacture
the exported seeds.
Moreover, he may enjoy the
tax return long before he does
the actual exporting. Imports
are. of course, taxable, but there
are several sorts of imports that
are VAT-exempt: these include
Alternatives Planned
For Gush Settlers
JERUSALEM (JTA) The government will begin
negotiations with the Gush Emunim over an alternative
settlement site for the 150 squatters now encamped at Ka-
dum in Samaria. The Gush insist on remaining in "the heart
of Samaria."
The government is expected to offer them settlement
opportunities on the eastern ridge of the Samarian high-
lands overlooking the Jordan Valley or on the extreme west-
ern edge close to the pre-June, 1967, lines.
THIS WOULD be in accordance with the so-called Allon
Plan for the West Bank which, though never formally adopt-
ed by the Cabinet, has constituted a guide for the govern-
ment's settlement policies.
The Cabinet decided on May 9 that the Gush squatters
must leave Kadum. If they reject an alternate settlement
site, they will be removed by force if necessary according
to the decision. The government will be represnted at this
negotiation by Minister-Without-Porfolio Israel Galili,
chairman of the ministerial settlement committee.
Political observers expect that National Religious Par-
ty Minister Zevulun Hammer and MK Yehuda Ben Meir of
ihe NRP's "young guard" will act as go-betweens with the
Gush leadership, at least during initial contacts.

Bareket says there is no fear
that the new tax might discour-
age potential investors because
under the new system the for-
eign investor receives the full
return of VAT input once he
sells his product, just like the
Israeli vendor.
SOME 400 officials are cur-
rently working on the new tax,

chinery designed to operate a
tax that they insist is actually
very simple. The new tax will
go into effect in less than two

Brazil Move to Discourage
Travel Will Hurt Israel
RIO DE JANEIRO -(JTA) A new government me
ure to discourage travel abroad by Brazilians is expe
to have an adverse effect on the tourist and pilgrin
traffic from this country to Israel.
During the 12 months between April, 1975, thro
March, 1976, nearly 7,000 Brazilian tourists visited Isr
But the number is bound lo decline because of the new i
intended to conserve foreign currency. The governL
now requires every Brazilian seeking an exit permit to i
posit 12,000 cruzeiros about $1,100 for one year at i
interest.
This means that every deposit will lose over 40 per]
cent of its actual value because of inflation.

Problems in Dealing
With Terrorist Madmen
-0RD came out of Washington recently that
our government may relax its policy con-
Icerning the handling of terrorists. The change
|in policy is under consideration because too
iTiany innocent kidnap victims, including gov-
ernment officials, students, and businessmen,
I are being blown to bits in this Era of Violence
when those who hold the power to win their
| release refuse to make bargains.
There should be no rash and harsh judg-
Iment about this. It's the innocent hostages who
have the dread experience of looking down
the gun barrels; and they deserve great con-
I sideration.
STILL, THOSE who are hard-set against
I traditional American policy to make no deals
with air hijackers, bomb throwers, and other
Lercenaries who traffic in murder without
mercy have heavy opinion on their side. Cer-
tainly, the guardians of safety in Israel, a na-
tion which has suffered the most from ruffians
and fedayeen and many other kinds of outlaws,
have been firmly committed to a policy of no
compromise with killers.
The Dominican Republic, Mexico, and
e\en Argentina have stood shoulder to shoul-
der with Israel on this unbreakable rule. And
up to now, Washington has adhered to the
fame principle.
Word leaking out of the high-level con-
ference at which moderation of the American
policy was considered carries this reassurance:
1 the specialists in the handling of terrorists
nave only "coercive bargaining" in mind.
NO CODDLING of the madmen with mur-
der as their mission is contemplated. And
Agencies Help Poor
Deal With the Money
LJUNDREDS OF New York area Jews are
getting help from Jewish family service
agencies to cope with the legacy of a wide
'ariety of problems left by the economic slump
that began about two years ago.
For a growing number of such Jews, ac-
cording to a report from the Federation of
Jewish Philanthropies, loss of jobs and de-
creased buying power bring worry, frustra-
tion and the need for drastic changes in life-
styles. Many suffer such related problems as
marital conflicts and loss of self-respect. An-
other category of problems are those of college
students who have graduated with degrees that
no longer mean access to career-entry jobs.
ONE NEW approach to the money crunch
offered b>' the Jewish Community Services
Long Island, whose home economist charts
a client's money and credit management, coun-
t's on handling of debt and works out low-
est nutritional menu planning.
A Federation spokesman said that, in a
special unit of the Westchester Jewish Com-
n'"wty Services, the abilities of clients are
elated to current job needs and ways are
Rested to bring such abilities into line with
Pemngs or to use idle time to develop market-
jj skills. This service, originally set up to
2 young people with educational and vo-
"onal choices, has been expanded to accom-
* adults of all ages, the spokesman said.
PROBLEMS of career guidance often in-
" emotional conflicts and about half of
apparently no abrupt switch will be made un-
til after very thorough evaluation of the case
histories of 951 terrorist incidents recorded
in the 1965-75 decade.
We have no right to prejudge the new
American effort. Much of our hope for a re-
duction in terrorism rests with Washington.
It will gain us nothing to look to the UN
for advances in this area of grave concern:
lust last September the Arab delegates to that
once reasonable forum prevailed upon the
United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention
to drop political terrorism from a list of in-
ternational terrorist activities requiring strict-
er control.
THREE MONTHS later six terrorists at-
tacked the Vienna headquarters of the Organi-
zation of Petroleum Exporting Countries, tak-
ing ministers of oil hostages and winning
praise for their exploits when they got to
Algeria.
This oil-soaked escapade, macabre though
it was, contained the seeds of comedy. When
your countrymen plot acts of terror, you may
yourself emerge the victim!
On a more serious plane, the International
Law Conference conducted in January under
UN auspices claimed 14 nations are cooperat-
ing to end terrorism. This report is spoiled by
e couple of footnotes: The Soviet Union was
one of 14 participating nations; it will take a
year to establish a commission of inquiry into
terrorism; and the world court projected to
handle these international outrages cannot
possibly get into action for at least five years.
Jews
Crunch
QalloL
WJCS clients seeking such guidance are re-
ferred for professional therapy. The agency's
mental health clinics refer their clients to
vocational guidance when they are ready for
it. WJCS has six branch offices in Westchester
County.
Lee Rohmer, WJCS executive director,
said that "when a wife works and the hus-
band suddenly becomes jobless, unresolved is-
sues about family roles get more acute."
He also cited the anxieties created "when
a hard-driving successful young executive un-
expectedly finds himself unemployed" and
"the concern of the growing numbers of sin-
gle parents confronted with the need to de-
pend on their own resources for support of
themselves and their children. We are seeing
more and more of these situations, where to-
day's financial and emotional crises just can-
not be weathered by a family without help."
MARTIN C. BARELL, JCSLI president,
said a record number of families are applying
to that agency for help. He said "many new
clients would never have asked for counseling
before money problems began to shatter their
emotional equilibrium.
We are seeing husbands deeply depressed
because of business reverses; wives bitter and
bewildered because their food and clothing
dollar simply won't stretch far enough; and
children developing their own problems as a
teaction to the tension and antagonism be-
tween their parents."

Propaganda
War Against
Israel Today
I RESPITE MORE than three years of relative quiet on her
various borders, Israel is now being attacked on the prop-
aganda front more viciously than ever, to the glee of her ene-
mies and the distress of her friends.
The Arabs are abetted in their attempt to turn world
opinions against Isiael by the doubts and confusion of many
Jews, as well as non-Jews.
CROSSING BACK and forth between East Coast, Middle
West, the South and the Far West on lecture tours, I have
been dismayed by indications of the wide acceptance of many
preposterous myths circulated by the Arab propaganda ma-
chine. Often this seems to be because of lack of information.
Never in the short time since the Jewish State was rees-
tablished has there been such a need for cold, precise facts.
Those of us who freouently have to face Arab hecklers
in public gatherings know how well prepared they are with
such questions as:
"Answer in one sentence: What rght do the Jews have
to be in the Middle East anyway?"
WHILE NO reply to their questions will satisfy or con-
vince the professional anti-Semites or Arab propagandists,
there are, I have recently discovered, vast numbers of Amer-
icans who could be won over (or won back) to Israel's side
if the truth were to be presented to them in a logical, intelli-
gent, non-emotional manner.
It would take days, weeks, months of researching through
a whole library source of books to dig out answers to even
the hundred attacks most often used by Israel's enemies, if this
work had not already been done by a brilliant young Wash-
ington editor, Wolf Blitzer.
"Myths and Facts 1976, a Concise Record of the Arab-
Israel Conflict," is a 119-page paperback book published re-
cently by the Near East Report (1341 G Street NW, Washing-
ton, 20005), which in turn is a Washington weekly newsletter
on American policy in the Near East established in 1957.
THE FIRST edition of "Myths and Facts" was put out in
1964. The present edition is the fifth. Previous editions have
sold 500,000 copies. This revised and updated edition ought to
sell another half-million copies if enough people are made
aware of its inestimable value as a weapon in the war between
truth and falsehood.
One of the book's greatest values is that it is organized
in such a manner that when one is in need of a specific fact
to silence a critic one can quickly flick pages and find it. Be-
ing a non-profit venture, the price of "Myths and Facts" is
within anyone's reach 95 cents a copy including postage
but dropping as low as 50 cents in lots of 100.
MAPS AND tables, columns and figures and short factual
paragraphs answer such questions as:
What really happened at Kuneitra?
What is the answer to Kfar Kasseim?
Is it true that the Arabs have always been tolerant of mi-
norities?
What proof is there that there have always been more
Jews than Arabs in Jerusalem, the ratio often being as high
as three to one?
In Israel life expectancy is 72 years. In what Arab coun-
try is it a mere 35 years?
IS THE ratio of Arabs to Jews in the Middle East 45 to 1,
20 to 1 or 10 to 1?
Israel's rate of literacy is 87.5 percent. In what Arab
country is the rate 3.5 percent?
Is it true that the Arab countries spend five dollars on
arms and munitions for every dollar spent by Israel?
The Middle East is a region of Arab sheikhdoms, abso^
lute monarchies and military-dominated regimes. Besides Is-
rael what are (or were) the only two Middle Eastern Republics?
PRIME MINISTER Rabin has warned not only Israelis
but the entire Jewish world that in the months to come he
expects that increased pressure will be put on Israel to make
concessions in the interest of obtaining a peace settlement
with the Arabs. At the same time, those of us in the field of
public relations expect that the Arab propaganda campaign will
be greatly intensified.

which compares favorably with the best-selling
"World of Our Fathers'' by Irving Howe. Ande Man-
ners called her book "Poor Cousins."

CAMP SHALOM OPENS FOR 1976 SEASON
Camp Shalom began its 12th year with an intensive
staff training program. Under the leadership of Ronni
Tartakow, camp director (left), and with the help of
specialists, the staff participated in athletic workshops,
arts and crafts, music and bus programming, swimming
and first-aid classes. The supervisory staff includes
Judith Cohen (2nd from left), Steven Cline, Cathy Drey-
foos and Michael Boone.
Counselors in Training (CITs) are the
foundation of a good camp program. This
season 22 CITs, under the direction of
Leslie Brenner (seated, right), will be
trained in the skills needed to become a
capable and creative counslor. Ms. Bren-
ner will also be Jewish content specialist
for the entire camp program.
r^i.
On June 24 a group of teenagers will leave for a three-
week Bicentennial tour of the Northeast, as part of
Camp Shalom's Teen Travel Program. They will visit
historical sites in and around Washington and will cel-
ebrate July 4th in Philadelphia. The staff accompanying
the trip are (standing, from left) Alecia Berman, Judy
Leibovit, Deborah Hartman, Donna Rubin and (seated,
from left) Andy Jacobson, Teen Travel supervisor, Irene
Katz, Lisa Berman and Jim Papp. A second trip is sched-
uled for July-August to the Texas area.
On June 11 parents of campers partici-
pating in the Teen Travel Program met
with Bob Kessler, acting executive direc-
tor of the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, to discuss the itinerary
for the trip to the Northeast. Parents were
given suggestions and helpful hints on
what to expect from this program.
A group of preschoolers take a dip in the pool to cool
off from the hot summer sun. Many of the youngsters
proved to be excellent swimmers.
The first day of camp was an exciting
experience for many boys and girls. A
group of fifth-grade girls line up for a fun-
filled time.
After a full morning of activity a group of campers en
joy a "brown bag" lunch.
The end of the day time to sit around
