"For some people, especially

Defense Cut Danger to Israel-Dole
NEW YORK (JTA)
Democratic Presidential

calling for large-scale cuts
in the Pentagon budget,
presents an "endanger-
ment to the security of
Israel," Republican Vice
Presidential candidate
Robert Dole said here at
the opening of the New
York City headquarters for
the Ford campaign.
Dole said that the
Ford- Dole record on
Israel is clear, precise, con-
sis ^nt and vigorous, a
record committed to the
freedom and security of
Israel. The people know
where we stand and w^ere
we are going."
DOLE ASSERTED that the
84.3 billion in financial support
Israel received in the last four
years for arms was about three
times as much as Israel had
received in the previous 25 years.

feller introduced Dole as one of

recently visited the Falasha
community in Ethiopia.
One of the Israelis, Dov
Goldflam, described the Falasha
community in an interview on
Israel Radio, one of the few
reports on the Falashas in recent
months.
GOLDFLAM SAID the
28,000 members of the Falasha
community still dream of emi-
grating to Israel, sing Israeli
songs and lead an intensive com-
munity life. Recently they have
been engaged in the economic
reforms conducted by the new
regime.
The government has organized
large cooperatives throughout
the country and sends large
groups to do so-called volunteer
work which usually continues for
a year.
Many Falashas participated in
this volunteer work. But they

"Israel's truly great friends and

During the opening cere-
monies, Republican State Chair-
man Richard M. Rosenbaum dis-
cussed campaign plans with
George Klein, a national cam-
paign coordinator, and Prof.
Israel Singer, an issues advisor
to the Ford campaign.
"The Ford record in all areas
of Jewish interest and concern is
a proven and outstanding one,"
Klein said, "during nearly 30
years as Congressman, Vice
President, and President.
"On the other hand, all we
have from Carter is rhetoric and
inconsistencies; on the creation
of a Palestinian state, on the
return to the pre-1967 borders,
and aid to Israel. With advisors
such as George Ball, can we feel
secure and safe with Carter?"

Federation Directors Discuss Jewish Needs
Central to the miracle of
Jewish Survival throughout the
ages is the idea of com-
munitythe sense of shared
destiny, a shared purpose, a
shared history and a shared
responsibility.
With these thoughts in mind
the Federation Board of
Directors spent the Weekend
Conference in Hollywood. Fla.,
developing a sense of awareness
of the problems within the local
Palm Beach Jewish community.
Aftt. an early morning
Shabbat program conducted by
Rabbi Hyman Fishman, the
board participated in workshops
designed to raise consciousness
in the areas of decision making
and social planning.
A pant", presentation on the
"Present and Future of the
Jewish Community of Palm
Beach County". was the
highlight of the afternoon
program.
The panel consisted of the four
executive directors of the Palm
Beach Jewish community
agencies; Norman Schimelman
of the Jewish Federation. Dr.
Sidney Selig of the Jewish
Community Day School, Steve
Levitt of the Jewish Family and
Childrens Service and Vivian
Becker, of the Jewish Com-
munity Center.
Schimelman discussed the
challenges of the Federation in
the area of care for the aged.
"There are many who come to
retire to our community in good
health, who now are experiencing
physical disabilities which
require personal supervision of
their daily needs. Our com-
munity must face up to this
problem and consider the
establishment of a Jewish
Community Home for the Aged,
within the next few years,"
Schiminman said. "Planning for
the aged", he added, "requires
innovative community based
services. We must start im-
mediately to plan for the future
and not wait for the problem to
become a crisis situation."
Schimelman also discussed the
expansion of programs and
services to the areas in the
southern portions of Palm Beach
County.
Dr. Selig discussed the im-
portance of a Jewish Community
Day School, "It is the concept of
knowledge that people who are
to make decisions for the future
survival of the Jewish Com-
munity here and abroad (here
and in Israel), must have
knowledge. And for this the total
Jewish community must support
for its own survival a Day
School for the youth. .because
without knowledge of what it is
to be Jewish there can be no
future."
Steve Levitt clarified the
meaning of the Jewish Family
and Children's Service and gave
an overview of the services
provided. He mentioned that the
origins of the service can be
traced to the concept of
Tzedakah.
"One of the ways which we
help our fellow man," Levitt
stated, "is through the gift of
advice and the gift of service."
In explaining the reasons for a
"Jewish" agency Levitt said,
"When a Jewish person from
Boca Raton, or Century Village
or' Palm Beach calls the
Federation office, or our office,
with a problem, they want a
caseworker from a Jewish
agency to sit down and talk with
them, who presumably will have
a sense of identification and a
sense of empathy with them."
"In the blessedness of
American freedom," Vivian
Becker said, "we can choose to
melt into the pot, we can choose
to be apathetic or wc can affirm
our Jewishness and give it
meaning. Jewish people live,
work, raise children, grow old
and get sick in Palm Beach
County."
In an effort to meet the
problems of the growing com-
munity, Becker stated that
social planning is the major
priority. "There is no escaping
history, particularly when you
are the author," she said.
The afternoons events con-
cluded with a Havdalah service
performed by Dr. Howard Kay.
Kenneth Scherer and Rabbi
Hyman Fishman.
Dr. Arieh Plotkin, discussed
the current geo-political
situation in the Middle East,
touching on events of the past
year.
Plotkin pointed out that the
Entebbe situation had served to
strengthen the image of Israel
around the world, improving our
position in the United Nations.
"If we (Israel) pool our
resources, political power, moral
strength, economic strength,
guts, determinationeverything
we Jewish people have we
would be amazed how strong we
are for a so-called small nation,"
he said.
In regard to peace in the
Middle East, Plotkin stated,
"Ultimately we will have to
negotiate, however, we can only
negotiate with an incredible level
of our own stiength."
As to the future of Israel and
its relation to the United States
he said, "Give us a hand, well
try to finish a job that concerns
all of us rather than come hat in
hand to a 'super-power'. The
more hand-outs we get from a
super-power, the less freedom
we have left. We have to be
strong to amount to anything,"
he added, "and strength means
all of our strength."
JCC Sponsors Photo Contest
Over $1,200 in prizes is being
offered to amateur
photographers in the I. S.
Rapaport Memorial
Photography Contest, which
began on Sept. 15.
The contest is being sponsored
by the Jewish Community
Center of the Palm Beaches, in
honor of the late philanthropist,
I.S. Rapaport. Its purpose is to
evidence through photographs
the quality of Jewish life in Palm
Beach County.
Competition is divided into
three categories: 7th and 8th
grades, 9th through 12th grades,
and college age (up to 22 years.)
Separate cash prizes will be
awarded to amateur
photographers in each category.
All photographs must be of
people, places and things related
to Jewish activities in Palm
Beach County.
Dr. Paul Klein, chairman of
the Teen Committee, feels that
the contest will help the young
photographers, as well as the
people who view their work, gain
a sense of involvement in a
historical moment.
"It can demonstrate graph-
ically," said Dr. Klein, "the
valuable experience of the
present instant, as Jewish people
come together in the Palm
Beaches and build a com-
munity."
Entry blanks and further in-
formation can be obtained at the
Jewish Community Center.
Israel, Syrian Officers Discuss
Druze Visits Across Heights
By YITZHAK SHARGIL
TEL AVIV Israeli and Syrian officers have
met at the demarcation line on
the Golan Heights. The meeting,
which took place several days
ago, dealt with procedures for
allowing Druze families on both
sides of the line to meet.
Last week, the first such
reunions since the Six-Day War
took place under United Nations
supervision, following agreement
between Israel and Syria.
THE ISRAELI and Syrian of-
ficers are also believed to have
discussed the Syrian soldier who
defected to Israel last Monday.
He was identified today as Pvt.
Ibrahim Mouhammed Jabi, 25, a
Druze who served in a Syrian
infantry unit stationed on the
Golan Heights.
Jabi was reported to be
recovering from wounds inflicted
by fellow soldiers who chased
him and opened fire as he
crossed into Israel-held territory.
According to military sources,
Jabi has requested asylum in
Israel for personal rather than
political reasons.
THE MEETING of the Israeli
and Syrian officers occurred
while the first Druze family
reunions were taking place.

Specifically, it may become
inextricably bound to
President Muammar
Qaddafi of Libya who is
currently supported by the
Soviet Union.
Mintoffs party won a
three-seat majority over
the opposition Nationalist
Party in the 65-member
parliament.
THIS IS regarded as a clear
mandate for Mintoff to carry out
foreign policy changes aimed at
bringing Malta into the non-
aligned group of nations.
Under Labor Party govern-
ment for the past five years,
Malta has become increasingly
dependent on substantial loans
from Saudi Arabia. Libya has
shared in the island's new in-
vestment finance bank, a
number of hotels, a joint
company with the government, a
shipyard and other new projects.
With a Labor victory, that
dependence is expected to in-
crease, especially as the planned
British withdrawal in three years
will mean a loss of 30 million
Pounds Sterling to the island.
ABOUT 14 million Pounds
Sterling are in the form of rent
for NATO bases. About a third
of that amount is paid by Britain
and about 16 million Pounds is
spent by the British services on
Malta.

MAdvised Timing
The signing of an agreement between Mexico and El
Al Israel Airlines that would give El Al landing rights in
that country raises many questions.
We recognize the need for El Al to expand its routes
and services. That is the major purpose of an inter-
national air carrier.
On the other hand, there is the still unresolved
question concerning Mexico's back-and-forth attitude
toward the Arab-Third World-Africa bloc, which one day
votes with that bloc to condemn Zionism as racist,
apologizes the next day, and on the third day moves to
condemn Israel for defending herself against hijacking
attempts by international Palestinian terrorists.
How can El Al ignore these considerations? Even if El
Al were exclusively a private enterprise, still it represents
the State of Israel.
The timing of the agreement seems ill-advised at this
point, and we can only wonder why neither El Al nor, in
fact, Mexico itself fails to see this.
Nazi Literature Spreading
From Virginia-Wiesenthal
VIENNA (JTA) Simon Wiesenthal, head of the
Jewish Documentation Center here, has informed American
authorities that Nazi literature is distributed and mailed to
many parts of the world from the United States.
In a letter to the U.S. Embassy in Vienna he said that the
Nazi leaflet, "NS-Kampfruf" ("Battle Cry"), is mailed from an
address in Arlington, Va. Wiesenthal identified this leaflet as
"the organ of the foreign organization of the German Nazi
Party."
THE NAZI-HUNTER said the person responsible for the
mailing is Mathias Kohl of 2507 North Franklin Road,
Arlington. Kohl, Wiesenthal said, also mails the newspaper,
"White Power," anti-Semitic leaflets and bibliographies of
Nazi literature in several languages.
"White Power" is the official organ of the American Nazi
Party which is headquartered in Arlington.
The addresses of persons receiving this material include
Germany, Austria, Argentina and other Latin American
countries, many of whom never ordered the material,
Wiesenthal said.

'Phooey'is Word for the Debate
Friday, October 8, 1976
Volume 2
14 TISHRI 5737
Number 21
PHOOEY. That is the most
respectable word I can use to
describe the first presidential
debate without getting involved
in an expletive delete.
Actually, both the debate
itself and the outcome were no
surprise to me. If I felt any sur-
prise at all, it was on the night of
President Ford's nomination
when he challenged Gov. Carter
and Gov. Carter accepted.
THE PRESIDENT had
everything to gain he has
already begun to do that
while Carter had nothing to gaii
at all.
In fact, Carter had much to
lose and he is already
beginning to do that, too.
The truth is it was no debate
at all. It was a non-debate. There
were not exchanges between the
two men, only weasel-worded
questions from a panel of
willingly captive newspersons to
whom the candidates responded
in a very predictable way.
FORD TOOK the Nixon low
road it worked before, why
not again? To deliberately
distort facts and figures, he
brought slick mediocrity and re-
hearsed conviction, the kind of
thing with which his predecessor
in office was an acknowledged
genius.
Ford answers never quite
dovetailed with the panel's
questions. Instead, he used them
as hooks on which to hang the
simplistic, generalized replies he
had so arduously teamed by
rote.
As for Carter. Only missing
were the white robes of Max von
Sydow. The other principal
ingredient was there: the
prophetic index and middle
fingers bound together in a
loving union of eternal grace and
blessing, painting the air with
delicate ellipses of the promise of
salvation through a plea for
political faith.
IF FORD now appears to be
leading Carter in the opinion
polls on just who won the non-
debate, it is that people, in-
cluding the President, don't
know what a real debate is.
Ford saw the debate as a
political rally televised free by
the dumbo networks for whom
self-adulation was the primary
purpose that is why the 27-
minute ABC technical gaffe em-
barrassed them so. I mean, how
do you adore yourself at the
same time that you are being
publicly clumsy?
And Ford cashed in on this
network opportunism in a big
way, at every opportunity
cursing Carter by name, and
with impunity, because after all
Carter, by the very nature of the
staging of the event, could
neither cross-examine his op-
ponent nor even simply reply.
CARTER, for his part, largely
prophesied.
He reminded me of an Adlai
Stevenson returned from the
dead, resurrected by the gestures
of Carter's religiosity to invoke
the spirit of JFK, HST and
FDR, not of Stevenson himself,
who even in death turned out to
be a loser, for it is Stevenson
who was the spirit. JFK, HST
and FDR were flesh, and Carter
had had enough flesh by then for
one full Playboy week.
As for facts and figures.
Americans are empirical. Give
them facts and figures on the
virtues of, say, Anacin vs.
Bufferin, and you've got their
souls trapped every time.
Accuracy be damned.
The headlines in last Sunday's
press tell the whole story. "Ford
Gains Slim but Significant,"
trumpeted one of them. Sighed
another: "Poverty Rolls Rose in
'75 2.6 Million Persons Added
to U.S. Listing."
IT IS this that I mean: These
are not the facts and figures
Ford cited in his non-debate to
Mindlin
emphasize the allegedly glorious
emergence under his ad-
ministration from out of the
doleful cycle of inflation and
joblessness.
How, then, do you rationalize
the two headlines the rise in
Ford's popularity at the same
time that poverty rises?
You don't, except to say that
in the American public's opinion,
Ford had more alleged facts and
figures at hand last Thursday
night than Carter, and therefore
more of a sense of command. The
spirit does not command nearly
so well for empirically-minded
America as does the flesh. Never
mind that, like in the Nixon
years, the facts and figures were
often untrue. Who would know
anyway?
DOES ALL of this suggest
that a Jesus-steeped Carter was
ill-used by the first non-debate?
Yes, I suspect he was. Or rather,
his candidacy was.
The point is that Carter's fatal
flaw lay in his eager acceptance
of the initial Ford challenge, as I
suggested at the beanni. I
given that his astute *
advisers should have fil
the outcome under the |T
debate circumstances and u
no to the TV networks' '
aggrandizing opportunism.
My own fear is not that Fiwl
will beat Carter as a gemZ
but that he will beatSi
fords own terms or dm,I
specifically on Repubi
terms, which is to say with,!
forcing Carter to submit J
serious questioning on serioul
political rather than brute ctm.1
paign issues.
IN THE clear apprehension I
that rord, himself, cannot be
subjected to such questioning |
without falling apart and
showing himself to be another
Nixon beneath his astutely.
applied pancake makeup, tot
GOP will never permit such i
thing, and Ford himself won't]
mind.
In the absence of serioml
questioning on serious politicalI
issues, I must ask my owi!
questions of Carter, and will do I
just that next time.
If I pose none for Ford ul
answer, it is that his great]
jubilation these days shows that
he is thrilled with himself that I
he really thinks he is doing
Carter in on worthy ideological
terms. It does not strike him |
that he is a mere puppet for a
juggernaut. His answers would |
be meaningless anyway.
Cabinet Avoids Clash Over
Alton's Proposal in Mag
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The Cabinet has avoided an
expected clash over Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon's proposals
for territorial compromises
published in the current edition
of "Foreign Affairs" quarterly.
Most observers had antici-
pated that the controversy
generated by the article would
erupt at a Cabinet session here.
Premier Yitzhak Rabin's aides
had let it be known that the
Premier was angered by Allon's
failure to consult with him prior
to publication or inform him in
advance of the article's im-
pending appearance.
BUT WHEN challenged by
National Religious Party
Ministers Yitzhak Raphael and
Zevulun Hammer over who
authorized Allon to publish his
proposals, Rabin, determined to
avoid a collision over the affair,
referred the questions to Allon
without comment.
The Foreign Minister said he
published the article in order to
impress upon Israel's friends its
need for minimal strategic depth
of territory to defend itself, wen !
in the missile age.
He said he had not intended to
present a formal proposal but
rather to argue Israel's basic
position.
The Likud, meanwhile, called
for a special Knesset session to
debate the proposals contained
in AUon's article.
THE FOREIGN Minister wa:
in New York by then to attend
the opening of the 31st United
Nations General Assembly.
Minister-Without- Portfolio
Israel Galili is expected to reply
for the government.
Press reaction to Allon's
article has been mixed. HaareU
congratulated the /oreign
Minister for a good in-
formational effort. The
Jerusalem Post. however,
blasted him for writing the piece,
allegedly behind the Cabinets
back and for timing its ap-
pearance to coincide with tin

The Histadrut newspaper.
Davar, agreed with the content
of Allon's article but faulted turn
for poor timing.

Security Measures Increased Along West Bank
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Securitv measures were in-
cased on the West Bank and in
fist Jerusalem following a clash
JJiween Arab youths and border
police in the Old City. Moham-
med Ahmed Joneidi, 24, of
Hebron, was fatally wounded
and another youth from
Tulkarem was shot in the leg.
Police claimed that Joneidi
was hit by "warning shots"
when a police patrol was pelted
with rocks and bottles in a
narrow alley of the Old City.
"The patrol fired a number of
warning shots, hitting two
persons.
"ONE WAS dead on arrival at
the Old City Hospital and the
other was treated for thigh
wounds," a police communique
' said. Joneidi was buried at
Tulkarem.
The disturbances, the first in a
number of months in East
Jerusalem and the West Bank,
were in protest against the
closure of Arab lands on the
West Bank.
THE ISRAELI patrol was
attacked following the
traditional Friday prayers at the
Al Aksa Mosque on the Temple
Mount. A record number of
40,000 worshippers attended to
observe the last Friday of the
Moslem holy month of
Ramadan.

an organization that started out
to do some simple things; to
take care primarily of im-
migrants, Americanize foreign-
born Jews, to teach them how to
live in our cities and in our
country.
"Jews", he continued "were
the peddlers of 50, 60 and 70
years ago and Federations
organized the agencies which
helped them. It gave people rent
to start businesses in
storefronts: money to buy a
horse and wagon.
"The beginning of the
Federation movement con-
centrated on the treatment of
social problems" he added, "but
we moved over to the second
step, the prevention of social
problems. We began to develop
centers and camps and YMHA's
to keep kids out of pool rooms.
"Today," Avrunin stated, "we
are concerned with the enrich-
ment of Jewish life. .enrich-
ment services which challenge us
because we are not sure of the
form they should take; enrich-
ment services in which we can
develop partners: the
synagogues, the religious in-
stitutions of our community,
other institutions, the schools,
even the colleges."
Avrunin discussed the criteria
for effective representation
within the Federation. "What
matters", he stated, "is whether
or not they (the representatives)
have a stake in Jewish con-
tinuity and enrichment."
He concluded his remarks by
stating that "There is only one
movement in the history of
American Jewish life that has
brought people together ef-
fectively, and that's the
Federation movement. It's a
movement that insists on year
'round fiscal responsibility; and
beyond fiscal accountability, it
insists on program ac-
countability.
"Federation should know what
the agencies do with their
money, and that's not only
locally; it's developing
nationally as well. .it should be
a deliberate process; it should be
a place where people of like
minds can think and not debate,

A shift of 10 percent of the
Jewish vote in states like Cal-

Klein pointed out that "three
target areas" in this campaign
are youth, the Catholic vote and
the Jewish vote.
THE REPUBLICANS
present, Klein pointed out, were
from all branches of Judaism
and represented a "large cross-
section" of American Jewry.
Among those present, who
were described by organizers of
the meeting as being in no
position to endorse any **>
didate, were Rabbis Israel Miller
and Arthur Hertzberg.
Fisher said that Sam Roth-
berg of Peoria, 111., telephoned
him from Israel to say that he is
completely for the President.
Two of former California Gov.
Ronald Regan's chief Jewish
supporters, Theodore Cummings
and Albert Spiegel of Los
Angeles, were present.
Among others attending,
according to a list made avail-
able to the reporters, were
Gordon Zachs, of Columbus, O.;
Jacquest Torczyner, Gustave
Levy, Maxwell Rabb, of New
York; Jay Pritzer, of Chicago;
Joseph and Lynn Meyerhoff, of
Baltimore; Moses Feuerstein, of
Boston; Melvin Dubinsky, of St.
Ixiuis. and Robert Hecht of
Houston.
SEN. JACOB K. Javits (R.,
N.Y.), who attended the White
House session, said that those
present had "a profound interest
in Israel and comparable
causes." He said the President's
explanation of his policies "is
very helpful and very con-
structive."
The dean of the Jewish
members of Congress added, "I
aelieve the President's policy
respecting Israel is very con-
structive and a statesmanlike
policy for our country. The
President fully intends to pursue
it and I am satisfied that it is
the way to go."
L. William Seidman, Assistant
to the President for Economic
Affairs, said, "I never saw a
Jewish group so enthusiastic
about a Republican."
SEIDMAN, who is Jewish,
but said he is not a member of
any Jewish organization, said
that Ford was interrupted by
applause no less than 15 times in
a 10-minute period of his speech.
Those interviewed after the
meeting said that there was no
mention of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization or Secre-
tary of State Henry A.
Kissinger.
Neither, they said, was there

"reassessment" of his Middle
East policy last year after Kis-

singer's first Sinai efforts failed
and 76 senators wrote to the
President on Israel's behalf for
foreign aid.
DAVID LISSY, associate co-
ordinator of the White House
Domestic Council who helped
arrange the meeting, sum-
marized the President's remarks
for reporters.
He said the President recalled
his address to the Rabbinical
Council on U.S.-Israeli relations
and his "excellent personal
rapport" with Israeli Premier
Yitzhak Rabin with whom Ford
said he has met seven times in
two years.
The record is clear that U.S.
military and economic assistance
to Israel is "for a good cause,"
Lissy quoted Ford as saying.
Allon to Discuss
Dispute at U.N.
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Foreign Minister Yigal Allon
said here he will discuss with
United States officials both
Egyptian violations of the Sinai
Agreement and oil drillings by
an American firm in the Israeli-
controlled part of the Gulf of
Suez.
Speaking to reporters before
his departure from Ben Gurion
Airport to attend the United
Nations General Assembly in
New York, Allon said that the
Egyptians have violated the one-
year-old Sinai Agreement
because they have continued
their economic and propaganda
campaigns against Israel.
HE SAID the U.S. as the
mediator for the agreement is
responsible for its im-
plementation.
On the drilling in the Gulf by
Amoco, an American oil com-
pany under contract with Egypt,
Allon said Israel is firm in its
belief that it controls the eastern
half of the Gulf of Suez just as it
does the adjacent part of the
Sinai.
He said anyone wishing to
drill there must receive Israel's
consent. He said consent will be
based on what Israel gets in
return.
However, he refused to answer
further questions, noting that
the drilling has stopped pending
negotiations between the U.S.
and Israel.
"We should not brag about it,
but it is indicative of the action
this Administration has taken
where Israel's need is great."
Ford added that he is committed
to the "security and safety of
Israel."
LISSY SAID that on Soviet
emigration, the President said "I
pledge to you I will make every
effort with Congress and the
Soviets to get broader op-
portunity for Jews to leave for
Israel and the United States. We
will not capitulate and we will
x> tall and strong in supporting
Israel's position in the United
Nations," Lissy said the Presi-
dent told his audience.
Ford said the Arab boycott of
Israel is a difficult problem. The
Treasury Department, he said,
tried to get legislation that
would carry out the intent of op-
posing the boycott and yet not
be punitive with regard to
American business.
It is the President's under-
standing, Lissy said, that the
final language in the Tax Reform
Bill now on his desk allowed the
intent to be carried out without
punitive impact.
LISSY REPORTED Hertz-
berg as having said that while he
was "debarred from taking a
partisan position" in the elec-
tion, he had told Ford that aa
one who had frequently met with
the President he found that the
chief executive "always had an
open door" and was always open
for "an easy and friendly
dialogue," and was "impressed
with your (Ford's) candor."
Lissy further quoted Hertz-
berg as saying: "We have not
always agreed, but you have
taken time to explain the prob-
lems."

especially since Sharon reportedly advised an audience at the
ZOA convention to stop contributing to UJA and Israel
Bonds as a means of protesting present Israeli government
policy.
Sharon said he had formed his judgment on the role of the
Washington embassy from conversations with Jews and
Gentiles in the U.S. It was "another worrying sign of Israel's
loss of independence."
Sharon said he had been pleased by Jimmy Carter's
expressions of arms support for Israel voiced during a meeting
between the two men.

Your Rabbi Sneaks

The Joy of Introspection
By Rabbi Emanuel Eisenberg
Temple Beth Sholom
In our prayers we refer to
Succot as "the time of our joy"
(Z'Man Simchatainu). The Torah
tells us regarding Succot: "and
thou shalt rejoice in thy feast
. seven days shalt thou keep a
feast unto the Lord thy God .
because the Lord thy God will
bless thee in all thine increase
. and thou shalt be altogether
joyful."
Taking a careful look at these
verses one would be amazed at
the constant repetition and em-
phasis of the mitzvah to be
joyous. According to some com-
mentaries there are two concepts
of joy imparted in the words of
Sasson and Simcha. Simcha
refers to the joy of an event that
has already taken place or is in
the process of taking place.
Sasson refers to a future event
that we are hoping for and at
which time we will be exultant.
Succot follows the very rich
season of the high holidays, at
which time we concentrated all
our efforts on a very high
spiritual level in prayer and
repentance. We are optimistic
that God has forgiven all our
transgressions and will bless us
with a wonderful year to come.
We therefore come before God at
this holiday, our hearts filled
with joy and confidence that we
will witness great blessing
during this ensuing year. We
point our Lulavim in all
directions, once again as-
certaining the Kingdom of God
in all parts of the universe. This
is Simcha.
Yet we wonder if it is possible
during the rest of the year to
perhaps somewhat continue to
maintain this pedestal of spir-
itual devotion. Regarding one of
the most beautiful ceremonies
recorded in the history of the
ancient Temple, the Simchat
Beit flashoeva, the verse that we
refer to this occasion, states:
"u'sh'avtem Mayim B'Sasson
Mee'maina y Hayishua" ("and
thou shalt draw out water with
joy from well-springs of
salvation"). The word Sasson is
used here in its proper context.
If, as individuals and as a
nation, we wish to attain the
ultimate salvation and to reach
the loftiest heights of personal
spiritual satisfaction and attain-
ment, then we have to strive,
through our own devotion and
deeds, for that ultimate period in
our personal and national life. It
is then that this concept of joy,
Sasson, will be truly implanted
in our hearts, minds and souls,
and once again become Simcha.
The Sukkah, or fragile hut
covered with leaves, branches
and fruit, is the symbol of the
early frontier days of our people.
In it, our forefathers lived when
they went out into the field to
gather the final harvest of the
year. The Sukkah is the symbol
of Thanksgiving, for Succot is
the most important agricultural
holiday of the ancient Jew.
Other symbols of the holiday
Succot are the Lulav and Esrog.
The Lulav is a palm branch
which is entwined with myrtle
and willow branches. The Lulav
is shaken after being blessed,
and waved north, south, east
and west, to indicate the
presence of God everywhere. The
Esrog is a large citrus fruit
similar to the lemon. In blessing
the Esrog, we thank God for all
things that grow on trees and in
the field, and ask a continual
blessing of the Almighty upon
us.
Some have interpreted the
meaning of the four species as a
symbolic deterrent against an
inclination of false pride. In this
context, the palm branch sym-
bolizes a straight spine, not
bowed to temptation. The citron
represents a pure heart guarding
against false emotion. The
myrtle symbolizes good eyes,
which warn against being
tempted by anything seen super-
ficially. Finally the lips are sym-
bolized by the willow, advising
the Jew to guard his speech.
The Succot Festival is ob-
served for eight days by tra-
ditional Jews, and then observe
Simchat Torah. For the
traditional Jew the first two
days and the last two days of the
holiday are equally sacred.
Liberal or Reform Jews observe
only the first and the last day of
the holiday.
The eighth day, according to
the traditional Judaism, is
Shemini Atzeres, when the
prayer of rain' is offered.
Following the Shemini Atzeres
holiday. Simchat Torah is ob-
served. On that evening the
Torahs are taken out of the Ark,
and congregational members
parade in procession, chanting
and singing. It is the rejoicing of
the Law.
Yes, we constantly have to
look forward to every day for
being a day for accomplishment,
at which time there will be a
personal Sasson and Simcha for
all of us. During this Succot
festival, the time of Simcha. let
us become joyously introspective
as we contemplate in retrospect
the message of the high
holidays, and in prospect,
looking forward toward the spir-
itual joy of our personal and
communal lives.
? ?Question Box? ?
Question: What is the
derivation and meaning of the
name "Mean Shearim" which is
given as the name of one of the
areas in Jerusalem?
Answer: This neighborhood
was one of the first areas which
was built and settled in modern
times outside of the ancient wall
of Jerusalem. It is claimed by
some that the name "Meah
Shearim" was given to this
settlement because it was
founded in the week when a
portion of the Torah is read which
contains this expression.
It comes from a verse in
Genesis (26:12), which reads,
"And Isaac sowed in that land
and found in that year 'one
hundred shearim.' In this
respect the expression "Meah
Shearim" is translated as a
"hundredfold," meaning that for
every seed planted, 100 are
reproduced.
The Septuaginta translates the
word shearim as seorim, meaning
barley. It has been scientifically
established that some rich lava
soil will give such a yield to
barley crops, i.e., a hundred ker-
nels for every seed planted.
A folk tale relates that the
territory was named "Meah
Shearim" meaning a "hundred
gates" because there were one
hundred doors or gates there.
This is based on the assumption
that people organized themselves
to establish residences there.
They would thus have doorways
of main entrances to their homes
there.
Inside Judaica
Q. What is the history of the
Israel-Lebanon border conflicts?
A. Lebanon participated, but
not very intensively, with the
other Arab states in the 1948-49
war against Israel. On March 23,
1949, an armistice agreement was
signed, fixing the former inter-
national boundary between Israel
and Lebanon as the armistice
demarcation line: accordingly,
Israel evacuated 14 villages in
I^ebanese territory which it had
occupied during the fighting. The
Lebanese-Israel border then was
generally quiet for a period of
almost 20 years, states the
Encyclopaedia Judaica.
The peaceful situation was a
result not only of Lebanon's
military weakness, but also of the
delicate balance between
Christians and Muslims in the
Lebanese population. While
many Christians may have
agreed to peace with Israel, they
had to take into account the
desire of the Muslims for
stronger contacts with the Arab
world.
For the same reason, the
Christians were opposed to the
integration of the Palestinian
refugees (about 175,000, mostly
Muslims), although their in-
tegration would not have been
too difficult. Consequently, most
refugees continued to live in
camps and were not granted
citizenship, the Judaica says.
Lebanon did not engage in
military actions against Israel,
but a gradual deterioration of the
situation began in October. 1968,
when Palestinian terrorist
organizations initiated armed
attacks across the border.
Gradually thousands of terrorists
concentrated on the slopes of
Mount Hermon. overlooking the
north of Israel.
In retaliation for the attack on
an El Al plane at Athens airport,
an Israel commando destroyed a
number of planes at Beirut
airport. From that time, the issue
of whether or not to allow
terrorist activities against Israel
from Lebanese territory became a
major focus of political life in the
country.
On November 3. 1969. Lebanon
signed an agreement with the
terrorists. recognizing the
terrorists' presence and activity
in Lebanon, assigning them
special areas and points through
which they could penetrate into
Israel, but forbidding shooting
aci oh the border, in order not to
incriminate l^ebanon.
The killing of schoolchildren ov
promts in Maalot was the most
horrible of these attacks, and in
consequence Israel retaliated in
the sharpest form ever.

The terrorists established
themselves along the entire
I^banese-Israel border in an
effort to convert Lebanon into a
northern front." This brought a
sharp increase in the frequency of
anti- Israel attacks from Lebanese
territory and acts of mortar
shelling, mining and sabotage
against the settlements of
Northern Galilee. Israel
retaliated regularly by air attacks
against terrorist bases and thl
dispatching of armored units and
parachuters.

Ex-Nazi Yale Professor Resigns
The most intelligent senator is
Jacob Javits, the New York Re-
publican. His speeches some-
times go right over the heads of
his colleagues.
SEN. CHARLES Mathias. the
Maryland Republican, is often
called the conscience of the
Senate. He votes his convictions,
whatever the consequences.
The most cantankerous
member of the Senate is 71-year-
old Carl Curtis, the Nebraska
Republican. But lately, he has
een trying to brighten up his
,iage. In place of the rumpled
jits he used to wear, he has
been appearing on the Senate
floor lately in an apple-red sports
jacket and white shoes.
The loudest member of Con-
gress, without dispute, is Bella
Abzug, the congresswoman from
New York. She is known on
Capitol Hill as "Bellowing
Bella." She can swear like a
longshoreman, usually at the top
of her voice.
SEN. JOSEPH Montoya, the
New Mexico Democrat, is the
vainest man in the Senate. Once,
he furiously scribbled notes
during a televised Senate
hearing.
An aide peeked over his
shoulder to see what he was
writing. The paper was covered
with the word, "Montoya,
Montoya, Montoya," over and
over again in big bold letters.
Sen. Barry Goldwater, the
Arizona Republican, is the
Senate's tinkerer. He drives an
AMX sports car, equipped with
a compass, wind meter and tele-
phone all personally installed
by the senator.

NEW YORK (JTA)
- The Yale Daily News
disclosed that a professor
resigned last summer after
his exposure as the author
of scurrilous anti-Semitic
editorials for a Nazi-
sponsored newspaper in a
German-occupied region of
the Soviet Union during
World War II.
Vladimir Sokolov-Sama-
rin, 63, who admitted his
Nazi writings, professes to
be an ardent Zionist now
because he believes that
Jews and anti-Communists
share the same goal, "to
liquidate the Soviet
system."
HIS RESIGNATION was
forced by pressure from col-
leagues rather than any official
action by the university
authorities, according to
Samarin. the Yale Daily News
reported.
He was identified by the Mos-
cow Yiddish periodical, Sovietish
Heimland, last April as the
writer of anti-Semitic editorials
in 1943 for Rech, a pro-Nazi
newspaper in the occupied city of
Orel.
His writings included state-
ments likening Jews to "a large
yellow rat with a protruding
mug" and advocacy of violence
against "kikes."
SAMARIN, who taught at
Yale for 17 years, claimed that
he wrote against the Jews on
orders from the German censor
and because he thought he was
fighting Bolshevism. He said he
had no knowledge of the Nazi
extermination camps.
He claimed his exposure in
Sovietish Heimland was a KGB
effort to discredit him because of
his anti-Communist activities.
Robert Jackson, chairman of
the Slavic Languages and
Literature Department, was
quoted as describing Samarin's
writings as "Goebbels-like," but
he took no action when they
were brought to his attention
last May.
ACCORDING to the Yale
Daily News, four of six pro-
fessors in the department wrote
to Samarin that his writing
"reveals to us beyond any
reasonable doubt that you were
engaged not only in anti-Com-
munist but also pro-Nazi and
anti-Semitic activities under the
German occupation."
One of the signers of the
letter. Prof. Edward Stankie
wicz, acknowledged that it had
been written with the intention
of persuading Samarin to resign
because "we don't feel the
department should be attacked
for harboring an ex-Fascist and
an anti-Semite."
Samarin, reportedly in poor
health, said he intended to resign
within two years but bowed to
pressure and submitted his
resignation last summer, the
Yale Daily News reported.
But he will draw his pay from
Yale through July, 1977, and will
receive a pension from the
national teachers organization.
PresidentKatzir Offers
Message on Holiday
JERUSALEM (JTA) President Ephraim Katzir. in
a New Year message to the Jews of the world, said that
following a year of attacks against Israel, as well as such
triumphs as the Entebbe rescue, "Israel and Jews abroad have
drawn even closer to each other, more aware of the values we
share and of the central importance of Jewish education."
KATZIR SAID despite the pressures and strains on
Israel, "There is a new maturity in Jewish life throughout the
world. There is a new sobriety in Israel's economic measures,
difficult for each citizen as they are.
"There is a new emphasis on measures to close the social
gap and to blend the cultural contributions of the various
elements of its population."
The President also noted that the Middle East is less
tense with the suspension of military hostilities between
Egypt and Israel as the result of the Sinai Agreement and the
Good Fence along Israel's border with Lebanon.
