Israel Ponders Meanina Of
Carter Victory Over Ford
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
President-Elect Jimmy Carter is
an unknown quantity to most
Israelis and they are not sure
whether his victory over Pres-
ident Ford will mean an easier
time for Israel on the Middle
East diplomatic front or a harder
one
Political analyists here do not
doubt that Carter is sincere in the
favorable attitude he projected
toward Israel during the
American election campaign.
BUT THEY agree that the
first chie to future American
policy in tbe Middle East will be
the identity of Carter's Secretary
of State and the atmosphere in
the State Department under the
control of a Democratic Ad-
ministration.
Some observers here are
speculating that Carter's foreign
policy adviser, Prof. Zbigniew
Brzezinaki, may be the successor
to Secretary of State Henry A.
Kissinger. (Political pundits in
the U.S. are leas certain.)
In recent weeks, Brzezinaki has

Israelis Wake Up
To New Pound Drop
By YITZHAK SHARGIL
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israelis woke up again to learn that
their Pound has been devalued by another 1.9 percent and that
the prices of essential commodities, fuel and public trans-
portation will increase by an average of 20 percent later this
week. Fiscal authorities said the two economic moves were not
related.
The latest depreciation of the Pound now stands at IL 8.56 to
$1. It was the 13th time the Pound has been reduced relative to
the dollar since the policy of "creeping devaluation" was
adopted by the Treasury in June, 1975.
IT WAS the second devaluation to be linked to a "basket" of
foreign currencies which includes the Pound Sterling, the
Deutschmark, Swiss Francs and Dutch Florins as well as the
U.S. dollar.
Export incentives will be increased as of today by 1.9 per-
cent, the same rate as the latest devaluation, the government
said.
The price hikes stem from a decision taken some time ago to
drastically reduce government subsidies of basic consumer
items.
THE TREASURY wanted an IL 1 billion cut. Histadrut
insisted on a cut of no more than IL 300 million. A compromise
of IL 500 million was reached .through negotiations.
This means that most prices will go up by 20 percent, some
by more and some by less.
BEGINNING this week, a loaf of bread will cost IL 1.25, up
from IL 1.05; one liter of milk IL 2.20, up from IL 1.95; eggs IL
0.57, up from IL 0.49; public transportation (urban) IL 1.10, up
from IL 0.90; margarine, IL 1.40 per 200 grams, up from IL
1.25; petrol, IL 4.75 per liter, up from IL 4.20.
Airline fares and the travel tax will also rise, but as a result of
the devaluation of the Pound rather than a reduction of sub-
sidies, Israelis traveling abroad will have to pay IL 9.90 for
each dollar, well above the devalued rate.
THE EFFECTS of the price rises will be eased somewhat by
the payment of new high cost of living allowances that are
linked to the price index. The most recent allowances were paid
this month. Israeli consumers will have to wait another six
months for the HCL payment.
addressed Jewish groups in the
U.S. and expressed highly pro-
Israel views. He said his ap-
proach to the Middle East dif-
fered from Kissinger's in that the
latter sought an indeterminate
goal through step-by-step
negotiations while he would
define the goal first and approach
it by stages.
BUT MANY Israelis believe
that this theory would turn out to
be a rerun of the Kissinger dip-
lomacy once put into practice.
Israeli analysts feel, however,
that the election of Carter will
give Israel a breathing spell
before the Middle East dip-
lomatic process is resumed.
The reason that Carter will
undertake no initiatives until he
is firmly ensconced in the White
House and has become
thoroughly familiar with the
Middle East conflict and foreign
polky generally. Time gained is
to Israel's advantage, it is felt
here, because any headlong rush
toward a settlement would mean
renewed pressure on Israel to
make major concessions.

Israel Sinks Terrorist Ship
aau mi a a a Caaaaa >H TEL AVIV (JTA) An
Israeli naval ship sank one vessel
carrying Palestinian terrorists
and captured two others. One
terrorist aboard the sunken ship
was killed and two others
wounded. The two injured Pales-
tinians and 10 other terrorists
aboard the two other vessels are
, being held in Israel.
An Israeli army spokesman
issued a communique, some 15
hours after the incident, saying
that the Israeli naval ship
spotted the three vessels in inter-
national waters off Lebanon and
asked them to identify them-
selves.
AFTER WARNING shots
were fired two of the vessels sur-
rendered, but the third tried to
escape, the spokesman said.
The spokesman said some of
the terrorists wore camouflaged
uniforms. The boats contained
arms and ammunition, including
Kalachnikoff rifles and bazookas
and explosives. Israel is not
excluding the possibility that the
terrorists were on their way from
Sidon, Lebanon, to carry out
sabotage acts in Israel.
Israel has been carrying on
patrols off southeast Lebanon as
part of the intensified sea
security since a group of terror-
ists landed in Tel Aviv two years
ago seizing a seashore hotel.
MEANWHILE, political
sources here viewed with skepti-
cism reports indicating chat
Syria may be turning toward a
course of moderation in the
Middle East conflict. According
to the reports, Syria promised the
U.S. that it would not move its

The U.S. conveyed this to
Israel with its own interpretation
that, for the time being, Syria has
decided to forego the military
option. According to the
American analysis, this could
pave the way for a new interim
accord with Israel on the Golan

Kahane Raps
RZA For
Barring Him
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of
the Jewish Defense League, has
denounced the Religious Zionists
of America for refusing to accept
his membership in the or-
ganization. He said he would seek
a Din Torah ruling and if the
RZA refused to accept a favor-
able judgment he would go to
court.
Rabbi Louis Bernstein, pres-
ident of the RZA, refused to com-
ment on Kahane's charge.
KAHANE, who last month
joined the National Religious
Party in Israel, which is linked to
the RZA, said that the
"establishment leaders have
fraudulently told the Jewish
people that they oppose me
because of violence."
THE JDL leader has sched-
uled a meeting on Nov. 7 at
the Diplomat Hotel in Man-
hattan to explain to RZA
members his reasons for wanting
to join the organization.

Rabin Voices Confidence
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Premier Yitzhak Rabin
said Nov. 3 that he was
confident that President-
Elect Jimmy Carter would
keep the promises of
assistance to Israel made
by President Ford. In his
first reaction to the Amer-
- ican election results, Rabin
told an interviewer on the
Army Radio station that he
believed that Carter
"understands our
problems."
He said he based that
assessment on two meet-
ings he had with the former
Governor of Georgia one
while Rabin was serving as
Israel's Ambassador to
Washington and the other
during Carter's visit to
Israel in the summer of
1973 after Rabin's tenure as
Ambassador had expired.
AT THAT time, Rabin held no
public office. Rabin described
President Ford aa "a true friend
of Israel." Of Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger, he said, "We
may remember with nostalgia the
days of Kissinger."
Former Defense Minister
Moahe Dayan and Likud leader
Menachem Beigin were the first
Israeli political figures to voice
reactions to the results of the
American Presidential elections.
Appearing on a radio interview
program, they took opposing
views of what the election means
for Israel and the future of peace
negotiations in the Middle East.
Dayan, a Labor MK, foresaw a
year of confrontation with the
new Administration in
Washington.
OPPOSITION spokesman
Beigin said that contrary to the
pronost ic at ions of political circles
here, 1977 need not be a year of
American pressure on Israel aa
Rabin warned recently. Dayan
claimed that there was no dif-
ference between Ford and

Sen. Baker observed that there
was no compulsion on the part of
Israel to permit the delegation to
see the Dimona reactor.
But it was understood that the
Richard Nixon promise in 1973 to
supply Israel with two new
reactors would be predicated on
the delegation's right to "ob-
serve" the nuclear capabilities of
the country and whether Israel
was turning the present facilities

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County_____________
Frid'y-Novmberl9
Israel Was No Issue
It's Jimmy Carter. President-Elect Jimmy Carter. The
people have spoken. What does his victory mean?
The electioYi of Jimmy Carter to the presidency should
mean no real change in the traditional United States
policy in the Middle East. Carter, like his predecessors in
the White House, will continue to provide support for
Israel and act to prevent the destruction of the Jewish
State.
But Carter will also continue the Nixon-Ford-Kissinger
efforts to seek improved relations with the Arab world
This means, as Israeli Premier Yitzhak Rabin and almost
everyone else familiar with Mideast affairs have predicted,
intensive diplomatic movement by the U.S. in 1977.
This lack of difference meant that Israel was not a
campaign issue, although Carter and Ford both made
strong appeals to the Jewish community with vows of
support for Israel. With Israel not an issue except to
those Jews who felt that Ford and Kissinger had put
undue pressure on Israel or those who wanted to reward
Ford for unprecedented aid to Israel most Jews voted
on domestic issues.
Things Carter Won't Do
This resulted in Carters receiving the majority of the
Jewish vote which traditionally goes to the Democratic or
more liberal candidate.
However, Carter did make strong pledges on Israel that
he must be held to and reminded of, if necessary.
Specifically, he said he would not pressure Israel to act
against its interests. He said Israel will not receive all aid
it needs to make it secure enough to negotiate for peace.
He rejected the Palestinian Liberation Organization and
said that Palestinians must recognize Israels right to
existence as a Jewish State.
Despite the basic continuation of American policy, a
carter Administration will be different in style and content
than the Nixon-Ford Administrations. Carter is untested
in foreign affairs, and any predictions can only be based on
speculation. The first clues will come when he names a
Secretary of State and other members of his foreign policy
team.
Will he hold to his promises concerning things he will
not do promises that seem more important in retrospect
than those he made to do?
Only time will tell but reckoned in today's terms,
that may well mean tomorrow.
Another UN Charade
There was a time when people everywhere looked with
hope to the beginning of another session of the United
Nations General Assembly. But now as the 31st General
Assembly has gotten under way the attitude is another
charade.
But it is a deadly charade. The General Assembly,
instead of being a forum for resolving the world's
problems, has become, as a recent book said, "a dangerous
place," where issues are exacerbated, not solved.
This is especially true where the Arab-Israeli conflict is
concerned. Instead of helping the delicate Middle East
negotiations, the automatic majority in support of the
Arabs has done verything it could to wreck the chances of
a negotiated settlement.
The General Assembly has become a platform where the
Arabs and their supporters can indulge themselves in
every type of anti-Israeli attack, no matter how untrue,
and adopt every type of resolution against Israel, no
matter how unjust.
This is why American Jews and Jews everywhere
must take seriously the call by Chaim Herzog, Israel's
Ambassador to the UN, that they should closely follow
the proceedings at the UN and express their concern.
Herzog believes that if diaspora Jewry shows its
concern many countries will think twice about supporting
anti-Israel measures. His suggestion should certainly be
high on the Jewish agenda to help forestall whatever
nefarious surprises the Arabs may spring at this year's
session.

ON ONE of the several oc-
casions that I had the privilege of
interviewing him, Harry Truman
declared with pounding fists to
make his point seem more as-
sertive that "foreign policy Is a
continuing thing."
I have since quoted that
Trumanism many times, not as a
means of rising in my own esteem
by virtue of past company I have
kept, but to correct the enthus-
iastic view of presidents-elect
that, like new brooms, we may
expect them to sweep clean.
THE FACT is that Jimmy
Carter has now been accorded the
privilege of being attached to an
umbilicus that goes back to the
very beginning of the nation's
history.
He will be required to honor
Leo
Mindlin
the commitments, both secret
and public, made by the presi-
dents before him in the name of
the American people.
These are considerable in
number. They are complex. He
may disagree with some of them.
Of others, unfortunately, he may
as yet have no knowledge.

Friday. Nov. 19,1976
Volume 2
26 HESHVAN 6737
Number 24
A profile of the typical Jewish
Floridian reader would establish
the fact that he owns a house in
suburbs whose inflated value
ranges from $75,000 to $100,000,
with an annual income in the
$30,000-and-above category, that
he and/or his wife are pro-
fessionals or white collar workers,
utilizing their college education
to the fullest, and that they voted
in the last election.
By any statistical yardstick,
that would place you in
America's upper middle class,
right? As far as The Wall Street
Journal is concerned, wrong.
You're Jewish, and by its social
standards you are part of "lower
America."
Any notion that you have
made it in this country, beyond
your material status, or the fact
that four out of every five Nobel
Prize winners seems to be Jewish,
is destroyed by the fact that you
vote wrong.
IN ITS pre-election roundup
featured story, The Journal
hypothesized that President Ford
has "marshaled the forces of
upper America suburbanites,
college-educated, white collar
class, families with above-
average incomes (with) the
best record of actually voting."
In contrast. Jimmy Carter put
together the "old Democratic
coalition of lower America .
blacks, Jews, union workers, city
dwellers, youths, Southerners,
low-income families (with) a
poorer record of going to the
polls."
I have previously noted in
myself a resemblance to Saul
Bellow's fictional character
Herzog. You will recall that he
waa a compulsive letter-writer
Edward
with a low boiling point that
drove him to his typewriter at the
drop of a wrong word.
TO SOME extent. I am ad-
dicted to that habit. Thus, when
The Wall Street Journal was
brought to my attention by one
of those first-paragraph Jews (see
above) who fancied he was in that
exclusive league which reads that
journal, I whirled in my seat and
attacked the typewriter with the
following letter (which I didn't
hie but sent off to that
newspaper):
"As usual, it's a no-win
situation for Jews. Obviously
reporter James P. Gannon knows
something Gen. Brown doesn't.
In his election roundup (Nov. 2),
Gannon defied the conventional
wisdom of bigots and gave us
this gem: "the old Democratic
coalition of lower America
blacks, Jews, union workers .
low-income families which
has a poorer record of going to
the polls.'
"Jews? Who owns all the
banks? Who controls all the
media lower America?'
"THERE'S NO objection here
to being lumped with the group

35 Percent of U.S. Jews
Voted to Elect Ford
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Supporters of
President Ford said here
that nationwide at least 35
percent or about one in
every three Jewish voters
cast their ballots for
Ford. In addition to their
own surveys of precincts in
Jewish neighborhoods, the
Ford backers referred to the
New York Times-CBS poll
that estimated 32 percent
of the Jewish vote went to
Ford and to the Lou Harris
poll showing 45 percent for
Ford and 54 percent for
Jimmy Carter.
According to Carter
people, the Jewish vote
nationwide was 75 percent
for him. NBC also
estimated a three-to-one
edge for Carter among Jews
who voted.
"OUR FIGURES nationwide
would indicate the President
received at least 35 percent of the
Jewish vote," David Lissy,
associate director of the Pres-
ident's domestic council, said.
His report corroborated

for Ford.
In New York, a specialist
pointed out that it would be a
mistake to assume that because
the whole of the Boro Park as-
sembly district showed 33
percent of the votes were for Ford
meant that figure represented the
Jewish vote.
THE DISTRICT has both
Jews and non-Jews, he noted. In
some election areas, the vote was
48 percent or even more for Ford,
he said.
He also observed that while all

What We Can Expect from Jimmy Carter
WASHINGTON (JTA) Democratic candidate national activities to combat
Jimmy Carter's victory in the Presidential election that terrorism, outlaw the Arab
culminated his amazing two-year drive from political bycott. *<* t"ke back
provincialism to the White House augurs well for strong SS^Ji^. SI'S
American support of Israel's requirements and on other United States
issues of Jewish interest and concern.
From the time the former
Georgia Governor in-
augurated his campaign at
the National Press Club
here nearly two years ago.
he has espoused economic,
military and political sup-
port for Israel support
that he enhanced with ad*
ditional pledges in speeches
and statements as the
primary and election cam-
paigns gathered
momentum.
SPECIFICALLY, Carter is
committed to U.S. aid that
"must be responsive to Israel's
needs," saying "Israel must feel
secure in the support that it
expects from America in order to
take the necessary risks for
peace."
Conversely, he has urged that
"the U.S. should not create the
need for aid to Israel by eroding
Israel's security through un-
controlled arms sales to Israel's
adversaries."
"As regards Egypt," he said,
advocating direct Arab-Israel
negotiations, "I would not favor
any sale of military supplies until
after Egypt has worked out a
permanent settlement recog-
nizing Israel and its right to exist
in the Middle East as a peaceful
nation."
OPPOSING THE PLO. which
he described as "unrepre-
sentative of the Palestinians and
unelected" and "very much the
instrument of the Arab states,"
Carter is against its participation
as "an equal partner" in any
resumed Geneva peace con-
ference.
"Any movement toward a
solution to the Palestinian
problem must emanate first from
the Palestinians themselves," he
hassaid.
Kiry at Arba's Rabbi Levinger
Indicted by Military Court
JERUSALEM (JTA) Rabbi Moshe Levinger, leader
of Kiryat Arba, was indicted by a Hebron military court on
charges of disobeying orders forbidding him to enter Hebron,
resisting arrest and insulting an army officer.
He was the third Kiryat Arba militant indicted last week.
A Beersheba district court also issued indictments against
Prof. Ben-Zion Tavger and another man not immediately
identified.
THEY ARE accused of forcing a Hebron religious court
judge at gunpoint to remove a roadblock last March.
Levinger, who is also the leader of the Gush Emunim
illegal settlement movement, was accused of violating court
orders issued on Sept. 25 and 26 forbidding his entry into
Hebron on grounds that his provocative attitude could result in
clashes between Jews and Arabs in that town.
In addition, he has contended
that "any emerging Palestinian
leadership must recognize
Israel's right to exist per-
manently and in peace as a
Jewish state in the Middle East."
ON THE question of
Jerusalem's future, he has been
less explicit. Although the
Democratic Party's platform
calls for moving the American
Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jeru-
salem, Carter has spoken of being
inclined toward the transfer, but
he qualified that by saying he
would need to be sure the move
would not damage the possibility
of a peaceful settlement.
He has advocated the right of
Moslems to enter their shrines in
Jerusalem without passing
through Israeli controls.
On Soviet Jewry, Carter has
approved, after meeting late in
the campaign with Sen. Henry
Jackson (D., Wash.), supporting
the Jackson-Vanik amendment
tying U.S. trade benefits to the
Soviet with its emigration
policies.
This is a plank in the
Democratic Party's platform but
Carter thought even in Septem-
ber that, as he told Jewish
leaders in Atlanta, "diplomatic
means which would preserve the
honor and independence of Soviet
leaders would be the beet way of
encouraging the Soviet liberal-
ization of its emigration
policies."
Carter also has responded to

munity leaders. The National
Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council, for example,
asked him in a comprehensive
questionnaire whether he opposes
an amendment to the federal
Constitution "to make prayer in
schools or other public places
permissible."
Carter replied that being a
Baptist "my faith is personal"
and "the establishment of the
Baptist church in this country
was to seek the complete
separation of church and State."
HE CONCLUDED: "I do not
support efforts to overturn the
U.S. Supreme Court decision on
school prayer through a con-
stitutional amendment."
On governmental funds for
non-public schools, Carter in-
dicated some form of help, saying
he is "firmly committed to search
for constitutionally acceptable
methods for providing aid to
parents whose children attend
non-segregated private schools."
He said, "I personally dis-
approve of abortion," and "I do
not believe the government
should support abortion" but he
does "not favor efforts to over-
turn the U.S. Supreme Court
decision" which in effect legalizes
it.
CARTER CAME down hard
on "quotas" or "proportional
representation" and on "gather-
ing or recording of information"
about the race, color, or ethnicity
of identifiable individuals.
"I favor affirmative action
programs to repair the effects of
200 years of racial discrimination
in America," he said, "but I do
not believe in quotas. The estab-
lishment of quotas under any sort
of definition is contrary to the
abolition of discrimination
because of race, sex, or ethnic
background."
Testing time is bound to come
soon for Carter, Vice President
Walter Mondale and new Cabinet
members responsible for foreign
affairs perhaps even long before
they take office Jan. 20.
EVENTS IN Africa, the
Middle East, in the United
Nations and in the Far East may
bring situations where President
Ford may ask the new Admin-
istration to take part in U.S. dis-
cussion of the course for America
to take in the international
political battles that may erupt in
the next few weeks and thereby
accustom themselves to the
world's difficulties before the
formalities of inauguration take
place.
Who will be Carter's Secretary
of State and his assistant on
security affairs in the White
House two posts held simul-
taneously by Henry A. Kissinger

The physicians saw the
establishment of yet another
deliberative body as a stalling
tactic intended to postpone a
decision. "Our presentation of
resignation notices is a move of
despair," a spokesman for the
doctors said. The work slowdown
will continue.
Finance Ministry officials said
the physicians' demands for
stand-by pay and extra shifts
could result in total collapse of an
1 already shaky wage policy.
THEY SAID that even if the
demands are justifiable, yielding
to them would only bring similar
demands from other sections of
the labor force. The government's
policy was to accept some of the
resignations but to reject others
and order the doctors to stay on
the job.
In Tel Aviv, hundreds of
physicians demonstrated outside
the office of Prof. Chaim Doron,
acting chairman of Kupat Holim,
the Histadrut sick fund to whom
their resignation notices were
presented.
Doctors employed by the
government handed in their
notices to Prof. A. Mentchel,

Ministry.

New Temple to Hold
Cornerstone Ceremony
Letters from a half dozen
public officials, from President
Ford to Mayor Dorothy Wilken,
will be deposited in the corner-
stone of Temple Beth El of Boca
Raton at a ceremony to take
place at the new temple on
Sunday. Nov. 21.
The temple, situated on five
acres, is progressing and the con-
gregation expects to dedicate the
completed building in March.
Temple Beth El was founded in
1967 as the Boca Raton Hebrew
Congregation, with a half dozen
Jewish families. Now, it numbers
well over three hundred families.
The building, located at 333
SW 4th Ave., was conceived by
Robert Currie, architect, of
Delray Beach. It includes a sanc-
tuary, seating over 900 persona, a
smaller chapel for weddings and
informal affairs, classrooms for
the religious school, a social hall
and a youth lounge.
Norman T. Mendel, formerly of
Kansas City and California, is the
rabbi of Temple Beth El, and Dr.
Albert Schiff is president of the
congregation. Chairman of the
cornerstone dedication ceremony
is Herman Herst, Jr.
Each of the organizations
devoted to temple activities, from
Student Council to the Temple
Board, will be called upon to
deposit items of historic interest
in the cornerstone.
Additionally, permanently
plasticized letters from
Congressman Rogers, Sens.
Chiles and Stone, and Gov.
Reubin Askew will be deposited,
along with greetings from Pres-
ident Ford to the Jewish citizenry
of Boca Raton of the future.

ofthatfom11 talked about
'alter Mondale. President-
Carter must never be per-
to forget that Sen.
le helped elect him as
Itists
much aa anything or anyone else
did if not more so.
THE MONDALE Dole debate
had a more devastating impact
on the Ford campaign than any
of the three Ford-Carter debates
can claim, including the second
debate on foreign policy, and can
it be that Carter's observation
laat week to the contrary ia a
frightening bellwether of the
imperial palace retained?
The first Carter-Mondale press
conference in Plains, Ga., was
therefore a cold, cruel and
ominous occasion. Carter paid
tribute to Sen. Mondale and to
the role he envisions for him in a
Carter administration he had
done that repeatedly before.
But the tribute turned out to
be unctuous lip-service. When
Carter dismissed the conference
with the traditional "Thank
you," there had not been even so
much as an appearance by
Mondale. And when a question
was finally addressed to the in-
visible Sen. Mondale. all the
Senator could do, who had been
relegated to an off-camera
station, was to leap onto the
rostrum and declare, "Too late."
AND THEN, like the crazed
Walter Huston in Treasure of
Sierra Madre, who danced a
devil's dance to the death of his
life's ambition, Mondale stepped
back off the rostrum and in
among reporters crying, "Too
late. too late."
And I kept wondering, too late
for what? Was it merely too late
to answer any new questions, or
had the Senator already dis-
covered something about Jimmy
Carter we have yet to see?
An eerie sense has seized me
since. 1 know, as I have already
suggested here, that a president-
elect ia often heir to a time bomb.
That was John Kennedy's
legacy to Lyndon Johnson in the
form of Vietnam.
BUT ALSO as I have already
suggested here, a president-elect
creates his own tone. It ia rone
that elected Carter. It is that tone
I expected to see during the first
joint Carter-Mondale press con-
ference in Plains.
But in Carter's insensitive
treatment of Sen. Dole, in his
wilful exclusion of his partner
from that first occasion of cele-
bration which both should rightly
have shared, in his barring from
public view of the man without
whom he in all likelihood would
never have won the presidency,
he has sung his first sour note.
He must be made to know that
some of us are monitoring his un-
orchestrated song.

UNITED NATIONS -
(JTA) Israel has told the
Security Council that
"there was no bloodshed in
Israel or in the territories
administered by Israel
because the government of
Israel has been and is de-
termined not to allow a
second Lebanon to develop
in the areas under Israeli
control."
Addressing the second
meeting of the Security
Council's debate on the
situation in the occupied
territories and the "ex-
plosive situation in
Hebron," Israel's Ambas-
sador to the United
Nations, Chaim Herzog,
warned that the current
debate can serve only Arab
extremists for the purpose
of "fomenting hatred
between Arabs and Jews."
NOTING THAT Egypt re-
quested the meeting more than
two weeks ago and that she is
using the Council as "an instru-
ment to solve the internal
problems" of the Arab countries,
Herzog said that life returned to
normal in Hebron after the Yom
Kippur desecration incidents
"and Jews and Moslems pray
today side by side peacefully in
the Tomb of the Patriarchs."
Asking why Egypt and the
Security Council did not take any
action over the desecration of
holy places in Lebanon in the last
one-and-a-half years, the Israeli
envoy declared: "Am I to under-
stand that if a mosque is
allegedly desecrated in Hebron
one convenes the Security Coun-
cil, but if hundreds of churches
and mosques are burned and
razed to the ground and
AMBASSADOR HERZOG
desecrated in Lebanon the Se-
curity Council remains silent?"
REFERRING TO accusations
by Jordan in the first session of
the Council that seven
Palestinians were killed in "cold
blood" by an Israeli civilian in
Halhul, a village near Hebron,
Herzog said that no one was
killed during the events in
Hebron and that the repre-
sentative of Jordan simply lied.
Only one person was injured
and the matter is being in-
vestigated by police, Herzog
said. Herzog noted that it ia
"ironical" that Israel is criticized
on the way she handles the holy
places, because, he said, all
during the period that they were
under Moslem jurisdiction Jews
were not allowed access to them,
while today every person, regard-
less of his religion, is allowed to
worship there.
DECLARING that debates
like the current one are "barren
and useless," Herzog called on
the Arabs to start the "ne-
gotiating process" with Israel.
"As long as you refuse to talk
to us it means that you don't
recognize our right to exist,"
Herzog said

TORONTO (JTA) -
Canada'8 federal government is
planning legislation, to prohibit
taped racial and religious hate
messages over the telephone,
Justice Minister Ronald Basford
told parliament in Ottawa.
He said the messages were
produced mostly in the Toronto
area by a group called "Western
Guard." He said they breed
"racial prejudice and bigotry,
arousing anxiety among racial
minorities and undermining con-
fidence in the protection they
should be afforded under law."
BASFORD said the hate
messages were aimed against
Blacks, Asian groups and Jews.
British Eye
Israel
Investment
LONDON (JTA) Fifteen
British industrial companies are
at present holding discussions
with the Israeli economk mission
in London with a view to in-
vesting in Israel, economic
counselor Amos Lavee disclosed
last week. He was speaking in the
presence of Avigdor Barrel,
chairman of the Israeli
Investment Authority, who is
here as part of a tour of European
countries.
In talks with British
businessmen and banking circles,
Bartel has been outlining the
attrac' i investing in Israel.
"This is a delicate area in
which to legislate," he said, but
he assured parliament that his
proposals would deal with the
problem properly while
"protecting freedom of speech in
a free society."
The proposed legislation will

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Portugal's Minister of Agri-
culture Antonio Lopez Cardoso
arrived here on a visit to Israel as
the guest of Agriculture Minister
Aharon Uzan. Cardoso described
his visit as part of "the process of
normalization in relations bet-
ween the two countries."
He said his talks here would
not be confined exclusively to
agricultural subjects because "as
a minister in the Portuguese gov-
ernment my duties include
dealing with political subjects as
well."
THE MINISTER was ac-
companied by his wife, Maria
Fernanda Cardoso, who is active
in Portugal's agricultural
development.
Cardoso's first meeting was
with Shlomo Avineri, director
general of Israel's Foreign Min-
istry, who reviewed the latest
developments in the Middle East.
Cardoso expressed hope after-
wards that further steps will be
taken to improve Portuguese-
Israel relations.

la the Arab boycott a problem for
people in Palm Beach County?
The four aspects of the Arab
boycott: To do business with
Arabs, an American firm must
prove: 1) It does not do business
with Israel. 2) It does not do
business with other firms which
do business with Israel. 3) It does
not have Jewish employees in im-
portant positions, and 4) Banks
must certify to 1, 2 and 3 for
American firms doing business in
Arab countries before issuing
letter* of credit.
Does the Arab boycott violate
principles of American
democracy? How?
It allows a foreign country to
dictate internal American affairs.
9 It violates the civil rights of
American citizens.
It violates the American
tradition of separation of religion
and government.
0 It makes for discrimination
against a particular group of
citizens, Jews.
American Jews oppose the
boycott because it violates
American democratic principles,
it is a major example of anti-
Semitism, it is a real part of the
continued Arab war against
Israel, and because individual
Jews and particular businesses
may receive irreparable damage.
How can the Jewish com-
munity protect itself?
Bring suits against com-
plying companies where in-
dividual's civil rights have been
injured.
Publicity wherever possible
to let the public know.
Appeal to government of-
ficials and legislators to enforce
laws and pass new laws making
the boycott, itself, illegal.
Continuous alertness to
every instance of action of the
boycott, and report each to one of
the major Jewish organizations,
such as B'nai B'rith, American
Jewish Congress, American
Jewish Committee, Jewish War
Veterans, or your local Jewish
Community Relations Council.

Post-Holiday Thoughts
By RABBI MAX FORMAN
The stirring and deeply
moving season of the great
Jewish festivals is now behind us.
I can see them all with the eye of
my mind the large congre-
gations that filled our Temple on
Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur,
and Sukkot. In retrospect, I must
ask, what have they deposited in
our lives by way of permanent
influence?
Judaism was never meant to be
a season religion, experienced
only when various holidays came
at certain times of the year. It
was meant to be a way of life,
inspiring the daily routine of our
existence. It is amidst the prose
of every day that we need the
exalting moments of prayer and
praise, of the inspiration that
comes when one feels close to
God.
What a pity that we are all
creatures of habit, and that the
familiar pattern tends to hold
sway over us. Perhaps we did not
attend services before, so we
continue in the same way. Has
not enough of the holiday season
registered with us to make us feel
that it is time for a change?
A new year becomes really new
when we reach out to do new
things.
I pray you, as we begin another
year in the Jewish calendar, to
make it really a new year, and a
better new year, by bringing into
your life a new source of enrich-
ment: the cultivation of an active
religious life by regular atten-
dance at Sabbath services.
? ?Question Box? ?
By RABBI SAMUEL FOX
Question: What is the origin
and purpose of obeerving the an-
niversary of someone's death,
i.e., yahrzeit?
Answer: This practice is quite
an old one. In the Talmudk
literature it is regarded as a day
on which one fasts in observance
of the anniversary of the passing
of a father or a teacher (Nedarim
12a). Other sources in the
Talmud consider this practice as
a means of honoring one's
parents which one is required to
do hiring his lifetime as well as
after his death (Shavuoth 14a,
Kiddushin 31b). The observance
of the yahrzeit of an outstanding
man was observed by as-
sembling at his grave according
to Rashi (Y'bamoth 122a).
Besides fasting, the custom de-
veloped of reciting Kaddish in
memory of the deceased on his
yahrzeit. This was first
questioned by Sephardic
authorities who claimed that
since the deceased would have
achieved his full record of virtue
after the first eleven months of
Kaddish recitation, further
recitation at any time might be
an insult to the deceased in-
ferring that he still needs help.
However, the Kabbalists (e.g.
Isaac Luria) explained that while
the first year of Kaddish helps
the deceased pass into Paradise,
each subsequent anniversary
yahrzeit, Kaddish elevates him
to the next higher level in
Paradise. Thus as some claim,
every anniversary is like another
departure of the deceased, i.e.,
from one level to another and so
Kaddish is in order.
Question: Why does
traditional Judaism prohibit one
from having his head uncovered?
Answer: The Talmud (Kid-
dushin 31a) quotes Rav Huna as
saying that he would not walk
four cubits in distance with his
head uncovered because he felt
that the presence of the Almighty
(Shechina) is "above my head."
The mother of the famous Rav
Nachman always kept the head of
her son covered because she was
warned that her son was to have
become a thief (Shabbos 156b).
Apparently, covering his head
served to deter him from falling
prey to the desire to steal.
There has been a great deal of
discussion among Jewish
authorities as to whether the
origin of this practice is a basic
law or whether it developed as a
custom among the Jewish people.
The Chafetz Chaim, famous sage
of Radin, declared it to be an
absolute prohibition [Mishnah
B'rurah, Chapter 2). The
Chatham Sofer (Likkuts Shalloth
ITTeshuuuoth, 2) indicated that
the prohibition was ordained to
promote humility in an in-
dividual.
It has often been said that
Judaism is a "way of life."
Accordingly it is a "total" way of
life whose customs have gained
the strength of law among a
people of discipline whose
practices have preserved their
identity and prevented their
extinction both physically and
morally.
Question: Why do so many
observe the practice of offering
liquor to drink in the con-
gregation in observance of the
yahrzeit of a beloved?
Answer: This seems to have
developed as a custom among
Hasidim although it is now quite
widespread. Actually some
rabbinic authorities did not
approve of this practice (e.g. Gur
Aryeh, Maharam Stuff). Still the
custom prevailed and is ex-
plained by several reasons. Some
consider it a celebration of the
fact that the soul of the departed
achieves a higher level of
Paradise on the anniversary of
the death. Others claim that it is
done to relieve the fallen spirit of
the survivors who feel the loss
on that day. Actually, it is felt
that this practice took the place
of fasting which was the original
requirement on the anniversary
of the death. Since generations
became weaker and most could
not fast, it became customary to
invite people to a special meal
which would be served after the
study of some religious text,
thus making it a Seudat Mitzvah
(i.e., a meal which becomes part
of a virtuous deed). Some claim
that just being a host is a vir-
tuous deed on the part of the
survivor. In any case, the meal
to which others were invited
^ok the place of the fast, or
alleviated the requirement to
fast. Later on, since many could
not afford the part of playing
host financially, serving liquor to
those present in the con-
gregation took the place of the
meal.
Inside Judaica
Q. What are and what
happened to the Ten Lost
Tribes?
. A. The legend of the Ten Lost
Tribes is one of the most
fascinating and persistent '
Judaism. according to the
Encyclopaedia Judaica. The
Kingdom of Israel consisted of
ten tribes (actually 12 tribes but
excluding Judah and Benjamin
who constituted the southern
Kingdom of Judah) and fell in
722 B.C.E. Its inhabitants were
exiled and disappeared from the
stage of history.
However, the passage in I
Chronicles 5:26 to the effect that
the Ten Tribes were in exile
"unto this day," and the
prophecies of Isaiah 111:11),
Jeremiah (31:8) and especially
Ezekiel (37:19-24). kept alive the
belief that the Ten Tribes had
maintained a separate existence
and that the time would come
when they would be rejoined
with their brethren and
descendants of the Exile of
Judah to Babylon.
The belief in the continued
existence of the Ten Tribes was
regarded as an incontrovertible
fact during the period of the
Second Temple and of the
Talmud. There were, of course,
some who opposed the general
belief. Rabbi Akiva expressed
his emphatic view that "the Ten
Tribes shall not return again."
Throughout the Middle Ages
and until comparatively recent
times there were claims of the
existence of the Ten Ix>st Tribes
as well as attempts by travelers
and explorers. Jewish and non-
Jewish, and by many naive
scholars to discover the Ten Lost
Tribes or to identify different
peoples with them. Various
theories, one more farfetched
than the other, have been ad-
duced for this purpose on the
flimsiest of evidence.
CANDLELIGHTING
TIME
5:13
26 HESHVAN 5737
Question: Why does the
traditional blessing (Mee
Sheberach) offered to help a sick
person speak of the "healing of
the soul" and the "healing of the
body"?
Answer: Some claim that this
means to say that illness of the
body is due to moral deficiency
which is described as an illness.
Therefore, healing is possible
only when one's sins are forgiven.
In praying for the healing of a
body ailment one precedes this
expectation with a blessing
hoping that he will be forgiven so
as to achieve both a healing of the
spirit as well as a healing of the
body.
Maimonides (Laws of De'oth 2)
proclaims that just as there are
physical illnesses which make the
sweet taste bitter so are there ills
of the spirit that change sweet to
bitter. He cites as such an illness
the case of a person who has not
engaged in the study of the Torah
for some days. His outlook on life
begins to sour. One therefore
prays for this kind of illness as
well as for the obvious physical
ailments.
Special interest is attached to
the traveler Aaron (Antonio)
Levi de Montezinos, who, on his
return to Amsterdam from
South America in 1644, told a
story of having found Indians
beyond the mountain passes of
the Cordilleras who greeted him
by reciting the "Shema."
Manasseh Ben Israel, then
rabbi of Amsterdam D
