eration of Palm Beach County, will be
held at 1 p.m., in front of the Federation

Announcing a new Riverside chapel
in West Palm Beach.
Unlike many other Jewish funeral directors in Florida, Riverside is not
represented by any other organization.
Our new West Palm Beach chapel is another example of how this
policy helps us to provide service dedicated only to the needs and wishes
of each family and the requirements of Jewish Law and Custom.
From the original concept to the completed building,our new chapel
is wholly in keeping with Jewish tradition. It is spacious and comfortable. It
contamsaRitualarium(Mikva)and other required facilities for the observance
of the Jewish Ritual of Washing (Tahara).
And, reflecting another Riverside policy, it is manned by one of the
largest staffs of Jewish personnel available in Florida.They are people who
understand Jewish tradition, and honor it. And in that tradition, we serve
every family, regardless of financial circumstance.

Another Crisis Crossroads
For World Jewry
By HENRY GROSSMAN, CHAIRMAN
COMMUNITY RELATIONS COUNCIL
JEWISH FEDERATION OF PALM BEACH COUNTY
iThis article on the Arab Boycott is a report of the Mid East Israel
Task Force, written by their chairman, George Golden. We are at
__,!, rrisis crossroads for World Jewry. .Henry Grossman)
the- crisis cross
ditor
The anti-boycott bill approved by the Senate Banking Committee
on April 6, 1977, has been dramatically and seriously weakened by the
Schmitt Amendment (introduced by Sen. Harrison H. Schmitt. R..
\ Mex.) The amendment, in its practical application, would allow a
foreign state to tell American concerns with whom they could and
could not do business. All that the American concern would need to
comply with the foreign request is an approval from the State or Com-
merce Department and our Administration supported the amendment.
In the opinion of several Senators on the Banking Committee which
passed the amendment by a vote of 8-7, it (the amendment! so
weakens the proposed legislation as to make it meaningless in light of
its original purpose, which was to eliminate secondary and tertiary
boycotts boycotts always deemed undesirable under American law.
In simple language, if the proposed language as it presently stands
becomes law, American citizens can be told with what American
citizens it should and should not do business if it wants to do business
with the Arab nations.
We believe that in the words of Candidate Jimmy Carter, as ex-
pressed in a campaign speech by him on Oct. 6. 1976. This is an
ahsolute disgrace."
We also believe that the basic issue involved here is an American
moral issue, and that all Americans should at least be made to
recount*!' this.
This issue is far more than America's having Arab oil. The worri-
some underlying concern is, "How far is' America willing to retreat
(rom decency, from moral principle, in the face of Arab pressure?"
Today we are told to legalize secondary and tertiary boycotts
something we have always held to be repugnant and un-American
under our laws. What, we ask the Administration and the Congress.
will it be tomorrow?
While we do not expect Arab countries to sell goods to Israel, or to
buy k'ihkIs from it. we also should not expect our own Administration
and Congress to acquiesce and assist in making legal circumstances
which force American businesses to become an arm of Arab foreign
policy. Instead, our Administration should take the lead and en-
couragethe Congress to enact laws which will make such acts illegal.
We believe that as good Americans you want to immediately tell
your Congressman and United States Senators how you feel about the
inti-boycott bill in its present weakened form.
You may write to your Senators at: The U.S. Senate Office
Building, Washington. DC. 20510. The Senalorjfare: Lawton Chiles
and Kit hard Stone.

Members of Boca Raton's

years has been meeting in places
I as different as a Lions' Club-
house, a Koman Catholic school
and a Moravian Church, are anti-
cipating the completion of their
new sanctuary which will be
dedicated during the weekend of
May 20.
The building, located at 333
SW fourth Ave. in Boca Raton,
has been under construction for
the past year. It will house a
sanctuary seating 325 persons,
which can be expanded to almost
a thousand: six classroom, two
"branes, a youth lounge, and a
Social Hall. *
The dedication will be exactly
"* wefk short of ten years since
'he first meeting of Jews in Boca

congregation was formed.
ORIGINALLY called the Boca

name was changed two years ago
Temple Beth El. The Temple is
Reform group, affiliated with
'he Union of American Hebrew
congregations.
'* was in May, 1967, that a

They were held there for two
years, until growth of the school
made it impractical to continue
them there.
In June, the first meeting of
organization was held, and Max
Hutkin, who is still a member,
was elected provisional president.
The Congregation has enjoyed
steady growth, now numbering
almost .'150 families, with a
religious school of 110 children.
DR. ALBERT Schiff is
president of the Congregation,
and Norman Mendel, formerly of
Kansas City and Oakland, Calif.,
is the rabbi.
The dedication program, to
which many city, county and
state dignitaries have been in-
vited, commences with Sabbath
services on Friday night, May 20
and Saturday morning, May 21.
On the afternoon of Sunday, May
22, a community day will be held
with an Open House for the
Congregation, their friends, and
the community.

[ Has West Palm I
I Beach Forgotten |
! The Holocaust? !
EDITOR. The Jewish Floridian:
We have just celebrated Pass-
over, when we recall the period of
slavery and persecution of our
people in Egypt 4.000 years ago.
This self-identification with the
past helps us to better appreciate
the freedom we experience in
America today.
Persecution did not stop with
Pharoah. but has reappeared in
every age. Thirty-five years ago.
six million innocent people were
exterminated by the Nazis, their
"crime" was being Jewish. Only
35 years ago. and Yarn Hashoah,
the Day of Remembrance of the
six million, came and went in
West Palm Reach, largely un-
noticed! Have we forgotten the
message of Passover and the
latter experience of this
generation?
We were privileged to live in
Allentown. Pa., for several years.
Allentown has 5,000 Jews, and
has had a community-wide
observance of Yom Hashoah for
each of the past five years.
Will Palm Beach County's
45,000 take Allentown's example
and remember next year? I^est we
forget, there may be no next
year!
BARRY H. SOLOWAY
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
It was with great concern that
I read the article about the Israel
Independence Celebration on the
first page of your Issue dated
Friday. April 22.
It was stated by you that con-
tributions had been made to the
Jewish Community Center by
various groups, and listed among
them was B'nai B'rith Women
Masada Chapter.
This is not true.
It is the national policy of
B'nai B'rith Women that "A
chapter shall not undertake any
project that involves any com-
mittment for funds, fund raise or
assist in any fund-raising project
with or for any organization,
agency or body......," and no
contribution was given to the
Jewish Community Center by
this chapter.
We would appreciate this being
mentioned in your next issue.

Lender Translates Concern For
Elderly Into 50,000 Bagels
When Sam Lender made Boca
Raton his winter home several
years ago, he brought with him
from Connecticut his concern for
the Jewish elderly.
The Lender Bagel Bakery
executive made tours of the
heavily-populated Jewish areas
of Dade County to learn how he
could help assist the needs of the
aged.
He found, among other things,
that food resources were
inadequate for the Jewish elders.
Recently. lender's donated
and delivered over 50.000 frozen
bagels to the Jewish Vocational
Nutritional Project of the Miami
Jewish Federation.
Naomi Benson, project
director, said the bagels will be
distributed each Friday, on a
weekly basis, to the more than
1.300 elderly persons who parti-
cipate in the Federation's com-
plimentary hot Kosher meal
program.
As available funds only allow
the free meal project to be
conducted on a week-day basis.
Ms. Benson said the bagels will
provide a nutritional food supple-
ment for the elderly during the
weekend.
"We are indeed grateful to
Sam Lender, and his brothers,
Murray and Marvin, for this
generous gift. The over 50,000
bagels donated by these
dedicated people will give the
elderly under our program a
much-needed weekend food
supply," she added.
Emphasizing the plight of the
elderly, Ms. Benson pointed out
that a Metro Dade County study
two years ago showed that 11,000
of the 25,000 persons 65 years or
older in the area were living at a
poverty level.
During the months that he
spends in Connecticut, Lender is
a weekly visitor to the many
nursing homes and residential
communities for the elderly in the
Greater New Haven area. His
station wagon is filled with
bagels and other food necessities
which he supplies free of charge
to those in need.
"There is no better feeling of
satisfaction than to help those
who cannot help themselves," he
said. D.A.

There is no arguing the fundamental issue that the

nations of the world today, is absolutely the worst of-
fender among them all on the question of human rights.
Particularly with respect to Jews, that old and
historic Russian anti-Semitism is becoming stronger and
stronger as the human rights issue emerges more
frequently in the struggle with the Soviets over this issue.
None of this, however, can excuse the tactics in which
the so-called Jewish Defense League engaged here last
week when it disrupted a performance by Soviet Opera
star Elena Obraztsova by releasing radatti in the
auditorium and otherwise disrupting the proceedings.
Thi m are tactic? that must lie condemned.
For one thing, they are dangerous. They might easily
have caused audience panic resulting in the injury of
individuals racing to exit. They might have caused heart
attacks among the elderly.
In sum, what the JDL did reminds us of the Oliver
Wendell Holmes dictum that free speech does not include
the right to shout Fire.' in an auditorium. The analogy
here is self-explanatory.
We believe it would have been in perfect order for the
JDL to picket peacefully outside the auditorium
peacefully to call attention to the concert-goers that
Soviet art disguises Soviet brutality. As proponents for
the human rights issue, the JDL should have certainly
had the right to make its opinions known.
But the terrorist tactics they adopted to insist that
the Soviets indeed become civilized in the matter of
human rights cannot include the right of the JDL or
anybody else freely to deny the Soviets their right to enjoy
the freedoms of American society while they are guests
here.
That would be a contradiction in terms and, what is
worse, no object lesson to the Soviets on just what human
rights are all about.
What the JDL did is what the Soviets, themselves,
are infinitely more skilled at doing. In terrorism, they need
no object lessons at all.
Black Anti-Semitism
Texas Democrat Barbara Jordan must be applauded
for her comment that "When it comes to the State of
Israel, we have common ties that will not Ik- severed. We
have a special relationship that must be nurtured."
Rep. Jordan" must be doubly applauded for her
recollection that "Black Americans know that the Jewish
community has been supixirtive during our struggle for
treedom. We Black Americans can be counted on to
support you. I make that statement, not only because we
are in your debt. but because our pursuit is common."
We don't believe Kep Jordan or other Black
Americana should feel they are indebted to American
Jewry precisely becauee off what she. herself, has said:
"our pursuit is common."
But the alarming rise in Mack anti-Semitism does
sometimes make us wonder just what our efforts in behalf
of freedom and justice for Blacks has wrought par-
ticularly when that common pursuit was unpopular and
hardly the in-lhing it appears to Ik- today.
Carter's Energy Program
President Carter's recommendations of a major
legislative program for energy conservation in the United
States should have the strong support of the American
Jewish community. As Americans we all have a stake in
preventing an energy crisis which could have severe
economic and even political repercuasiona in this countnr.
But as Jews the stake is even higher because it affects
not only the well-being of the American Jewish com
munity but alw of the Slat.' of Israel. The 1973 Aral) oil
boycott showed that the Arabs have begun to learn how to
use oil as a weapon against Israel.
I )espite the predictions of some Jewish organizations,
the oil boycott did not turn the American people against
Jews or Israel

German Industry Discovers
By GERHARD MEYENBURG
America has been rediscovered
500 years after Columbus
crossed the Atlantic. The
massive buying power of the
States has made that country an
interesting proposition for West
German investors.
Volkswagen is erecting an
assembly plant for its "Rabbit"
in Pennsylvania, Daimler-Benz is
considering the acquisition of
certain plants of White Motors,
which M ir. financial straits at
present, and Linde has recently
bought a stake in the forklift
truck business of the Otis
Elevator Company in New York.
BUT THE big capital trek to
America is spearheaded by the
chemical industry. This coun-
try's major chemical concerns
have for some time been manu-
facturing in the country of unlim-
ited opportunities. And smaller,
though equally fine, chemical
companies are following suit.
The most recent of them is
Degussa, which intends to invest
some $150 million in Alabama by
1978.
According to the Bonn
Ministry of Economic Affairs.
this country's investments in
America stood at DM5.4 billion
at the end of 1976. But thi* figure
only includes capital transfers
across our borders and not
transfers made from Luxem-
bourg and other financial centers.
APPRECIATION and re-
invested profits are also not
included in this figure. If one
were to include all this, the actual

Granted, it is no accident that
the increase of German invest-
ments in America coincides with
b radical change in foreign ex-
change parities.
The days are over when
Americana could buy German
factories out of their petty cash
box. so to speak, and trans-
actions in the opposite direction
were prohibitively expensive. A
dollar no longer cost, four
r\wo8fmarks but
THE REVALUATION of the
deutschmark has made invest-
ments in the United States
cheaper and even more im-
portant perhaps it has more or
less equalized production costs
While actual hourly wages are
still higher in the United States,
additional coats caused by social'
security contributions and the
like are considerably lower.

Sunshine Rule in Tallahassee
It is an architectural axiom
that form always follows func-
tion. A jaundiced look at what is
taking place in Washington and
Tallahassee would lead one to
believe that (jOUafl. Sullivan's
dictum has been brought into the
political arena by functional
idiots following an American
form of anarchy.
I would hazard the phil-
osophical statement that in
politics function ever follows
form. The breakdown of party
government, in my opinion, has
led to the failure of the legislative
process in the two capitols we are
most interested in.
WITNESS the chaos of these
early legislative weeks and
months in devising a coherent
program, let alone completing
one. It may not be possible to go
back to those simple days when
we were taught that the
Republicans believed in high
tariff and the Democrats in a low
tariff policy, or that the Demo-
crats were the liberal party, and
the Republicans reflected the
views of the business industrial
establishment, but we might try.
ONE MAY point to the many
evils associated with party
organizations which were
disciplined and programmatic.
But they, at least, were
responsible. Who or what is
responsible in Washington'
Jimmy Carter? Dick Stone'
Russell Long? G p
McGovern? The Democratic
President has an energy
program, but what does that
mean to the group labelled a
Democratic" Congress?
If the nation as a whole has
adopted the gothic. political
forms of the "old" South, look at
Tallahassee these days and weep
for Florida and America. It isn't
only the idiot who protests
teaching the metric system in our
schools because it is part of a
Communist takeover: it is the
number of fools who couldn't
shake their fear of homosexual
marriages, mixed rest rooms and
states rights to vote against
ERA, but approve a measure to
outlaw home rule rights when it
comes to rent control.
In my party machine days in
New Jersey, when a Jew was in
line for Assembly Speaker, the
Republican Party organization
knocked its anti-Semites into
line, and he became it (and later
Senate president).
IN FLORIDA, as John
McDermott pointed out in The
Miami Herald, one of the strikes
against Jack Gordon in his bid
for the Senate presidency was
that he is a Miami Beach Jew. No
party discipline, no party respon-
sibility, no party program to
develop equal shares of power
and a view of the state that
transcends parochial and
prejudiced interests.
The belief that non-partisan
government is good, clean
government is a pernicious one
that has been fostered by
reformers with whom I have
shared many illusions but not to
that extent.
Instead they have delivered
over to the special interest
groups open parties, made upofa
rag-tag of individuals whom they
can capture easily and
manipulate so that the result is
the chaos of legislature in
Tallahassee and Washington
AND LET us not ignore the
power that has t>een derived by
the media which have played, if
not a deliberate one, a major role
in subverting the influence of
party organization. Today, the
media have taken over the party
as the principal source of in-
formation on what the candidates
are saying and doing.
They, as we know, screen the
candidates, another former
function of the party, and 01
course pass judgment on them.
The Miami Herald may not win
them all. but its record is
probably as good as any of those
old-fashioned party organizations
it has condemned these man)
years.
I have remaining on my desk a
large number of recent clipping*
to bolster my point that tne
decline and decay of the party
system has not given us thegooa
government and good people tw
were promised by those
worked to undermine the system
INSTEAD we have a greater
collection of idiots and corn.pi
officials than any party. evi*
Richard Daleys or Frank Hague*
would have dared give us.
And more government in *
sunshine that is so glaring mw
devotion to special, rather than
people, interests than one can
to look at.

AmericaAnd is Making the Best of It
trials are available at a
reasonable cost.
And freight charges ar?
diminishing the more production
Its on American component
!,,. All this makes it quite
nrofitable to supply the Amer-
'Sn market from a factory
located in that country.
THE QUESTION of costs,
while important, is not the main
motivating force behind German
investments in the United
States. The main reason is the
physical presence on the world's
largest market and proximity to
the customer.
This makes it possible to react
more flexibly to demand, be it for
goods or services, and to
guarantee shipments (an aspect
of paramount importance in the
chemical industry) while at the
same time capturing a larger
share of the market without
bogging down in the jungle of
tariff regulations.
While more than 11 percent of
West Germany's direct invest-
ments in the post-war era went to
the United States, in certain
individual branches of industry
this proportion is even higher.
THE CHEMICAL giant
Bayer, for instance, concentrated
40 percent of its foreign invest-
ments in the United States.
Bayer's sales in America amount
to approximately $800 million per
annum of which 85 percent is
accounted for by the concern's
American output.
The American market is not
between the exploration of new
customers' wishes and their
implementation at the German
assembly line. Including trans-
portation, it can take many
months before a VW is equipped
in exactly the manner customers
in New York or Chicago want.
This time-lag will be eliminated
in the future.
It is lamentable that German
investments are concentrated on
the United States and that de-
veloping countries are benefiting
little from the flow of capital.
But according to the Con-
federation of Federal Republic
Industry there are good reasons
for this state of affairs.
TAX RELIEF and cheap labor
in the developing nations lose
much of their attraction as a
result of inadequate infra-
structure and poor productivity
of the local labor force. Moreover,
many developing nations demand
that their nationals hold a
controlling interest in the
company a demand which has
a deterrent effect, as do dif-
ficulties in transferring profits.
None of these obstacles hamper
investments in the United
States.
And as opposed to many
developing nations who insist
that products be exported in
order to improve their balances of
payments, America imposes no
such restrictions.
Those investing in the United
States invest in the world's freest
country with a huge market.
Kdlner SUdt Anzelger

only important for our chemical
industry because it is demanding
and because only topnotch prod-
ucts stand a chance, but also
because the Americans are ex-
tremely domestically orientated
where chemicals are concerned, of
which they buy only five percent
abroad.
In other words, one must be on
the spot if one is to make a sale.
This consideration was also the
motivating power behind
Degussa's decision to erect a
factory in Alabama.
THE cyanurchloride which
Degussa will manufacture in its
U.S. plant will be sold primarily
to Shell, which intends to process
it as a weedkiller in its Alabama
factory. There is every likelihood
that Shell would have found
shipments of that chemical from
Germany too unreliable.
Furthermore, freight costs of
light but bulky chemicals to the

United States would have been
disproportionately high. This is a
consideration which carries less
weight for the automobile in-
dustry. But even so, freight costs
played a considerable role in
VW's feasibility study for its
American plant.
St ill. with 40 percent of the
component parts for the
"Rabbit" having to come from
the Federal Republic, Volks-
wagen will be unable to rid itself
of freight charges entirely.
BUT THIS alone is unlikely to
induce VW to use American com-
ponents for its "Rabbit."
True, VW's chief executive
pointed out that mass produced
components could be bought
more cheaply in the United
States, but before this can be
done American manufacturers
must meet VW standards.
In keeping with the general
trend, VW's headquarters in
Wolfsburg stress the importance
if an operational base dose to the
-ustomer because it eliminates
.he "pipeline effect."

? TQuestion Box? ? | RabilVs Dilemma
By Rabbi Samuel J. Fox
Question: What is "sefirah?"
Answer: The word Sfirah
means counting. In the context
of the current period of time the
word is used as a reference to the
ritual count that takes place
every evening between the
festival of I'assover and the
festival of Shavuoth. The period
of time itself is also called sefirah,
which is a short form of the ex-
pression "the days of sefirah,"
which means the days during
which this count is made daily.
Question: What is the reason
for this procedure of counting?
Answer: Technically, this is
one of the commandments men-
tioned explicitly in the Bible. A
number of commentaries have
offered a variety of explanations.
Principally, it is a manifestation
of the idea that the day in which
the counting culminates is the
day which is the anniversary of
the Revelations at Sinai. This
event is, of course, the corner-
stone of the Jewish faith.
The reason that the counting
takes place beginning with the
day after the first day of the
I'assover is to show the in-
dispensable link between the
festival of freedom and the
festival of Revelation. In this
respect, there can be no
Revelation without freedom and
freedom is meaningless unless
man is guided by the Revelation
of God's will.
By Rabbi Hyman Fishman
Shalom Memorial Park
Temple Beth David
Some claim that these days are
counted because they are very
solemn days since thousands of
Rabbi Akiba's students died in
those days during the Roman
Period.
It is also claimed that this
count took place for the sake of
the pilgrims who traveled back
and forth from Jerusalem to their
homes during this interval
between the two festivals, each of
which required their presence in
Jerusalem. Since the interval
between these two festivals is
very brief, care had to be taken to
make sure one allowed himself
enough time to go home and
return to Jerusalem.

Emor
"Seven days ye shall eat unleavened bread" (Lev. 23.6)
"... a memorial. blast of horns ." (23.23) ". the
fruit of goodly trees" (23.40).
EMOR "And the Lord said unto Moses: Speak unto
the priests the sons of Aaron, and say unto them: There
shall none defile himself for the dead among his people;
except for his kin that is near unto him, for his mother,
and for his father, and for his son, and for his daughter,
and for his brother; and for his sister a virgin They
shall not take a woman that is a harlot, or profaned;
neither shall they take a woman put away from her
husband" (Leviticus 21.1-7). The high priest "shall take a
wife in her virginity. A widow, or one divorced, or a
profaned woman, or a harlot, these shall he not take"
(Leviticus 21.13-14). No priest with a blemish might
approach the altar to offer a sacrifice the impure priest
might not even approach the holy food nor eat it. No
animal with a blemish might be an offering.
The seasons of the holy convocations are then
described: "The seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest
... ye shall do no manner of work ... In the first month,
on the fourteenth day ... at dusk, is the Lords passover
... on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of
unleavened bread seven days ye shall eat unleavened
bread" (Leviticus 23.3-6). The festival of the First Fruits
(Shavuot) occurs on the fiftieth day after the first day of
Passover. "In the seventh month, in the first day of the
month, shall be a solemn rest unto you, a memorial
proclaimed with the blast of horns, a holy convocation. Ye
shall do no manner of servile work. Howbeit on the
tenth day of this seventh month is the day of atonement
. and ye shall afflict your souls And ye shall do no
manner of work in that same day; for it is a day of atone-
ment, to make atonement for you before the Lord your
God ... On the fifteenth day of this seventh month is the
feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord"
(Leviticus 23.24-34).
"And ye shall take you on the first day the fruit of
goodly trees, branches of palm-trees, and boughs of thick
trees, an (Willows of the brook, and ye shall rejoice before
the Lordgtour God ... it is a statute for ever in your
generation And Moses declared unto the children of
Israel thAipointed seasons of the Lord" (Leviticus 23.40-

Tsamir Si J pvblishtd by Shenookt Tho voH.mtl. .voiiSuat /"mE
From the time I learned about
the Bible episode in which Moses
was punished for striking a rock
to extract water for a thirsting
people, I have wondered at the
justice of that punishment. To
lose the most cherished prize
the goal for which he strived for
many years to labor for the
cause of an entire people and then
to learn that others will complete
this goal that he was to die
before it happened seemed
unfair.
Furthermore, the sin seemed so
minor. What harm had been
done? Shouldn't his good deeds
easily have out-weighed this one,
seemingly insignificant sin?
In Judaism, such questions are
permissible Abraham, the first
Hebrew, questions God's justice
in the Bible before the destruc-
tion of Sodom and Gomorrah.
Since then his descendants have
continued to do so whenever the
justice of the situation did not
seem apparent. Our sages dealt
with many such situations and
attempted to justify God's
decisions. After all, the God of
justice must Himself be just.
IN ABRAHAM'S case, he
succeeds in calling attention to
his nephew's plight in Sodom,
causing Lot to be rescued. Moses,
however, is not permitted to
enter the promised land. That
punishment was carried out
despite his pleading.
Why does this happen?
Because, we are told, he was in
a position of leadership and failed
to use an opportunity to lead by
example. In that particular
situation, "talking" to a rock
would have been more effective
than hitting it with the staff that
had brought about miracles,
earlier. The people who witnessed
that might have forsaken other
gods and been more faithful to
their own God. Having failed to
accomplish this, the mantle of
leadership was removed and
given to his successor.
HOW SIMILAR that Bible
story is to the happenings of our
own time.
A Prime Minister, for a seem-
ingly small offense, loses the
mantle of leadership and is
prosecuted diligently for it. His
crime seems so small. He allowed
some of his money to remain in
American banks instead of
bringing it back to Israel.
Why the severe punishment?
THE REASON is similar to
the one given in the case of
Moses. A leader of people must
lead by example.
In a time when Israel has
undergone so many economic
crises, when devaluation has hurt
everyone's standard of living
the Prime Minister is caught with
money in a foreign bank which
has not been devalued.
How can he lead others when
he, himself, has not complied to
the law of the land?
FURTHERMORE. leaving
money in a foreign bank might
imply lack of confidence in his
own country. This crime of an
individual must be viewed as
serious when one is the leader of a
nation. A leader must lead by
example without blemish.
When he begins to act above the
law, even in matters that seem
insignificant, then he is no longer
fit to lead.
History will evaluate Rabin's
contribution to Israel and I am
sure his contribution will out-
Fishman
weigh this error. But fomo.
Israel must seek a new
Minister to uke his place.

Federation's Day Camp
Js Group Living Lesson
Day camping is an experience in group living in a natural
environment. At the Jewish Federation-sponsored Camp
Shalom, the first and most important aspect of the summer
program is helping the children relate to their peers a basic
skill in the art of human living
"The campers are encouraged to participate in decision-
making through small group experiences, with other youngsters
of the same age." stated Charles Jacobaon. Camp Committee
chairman.
The boys and girls at Camp Shalom are involved in
"decision-making" and understand cooperation and the
acceptance of responsibility.
"We stimulate and reinforce the child's concern for the welfare
of others, while helping him establish positive attitudes in
regard to cooperation and acceptance of responsibility. By so
doing we help him realize that making friends is an achievement
. not the result of an occurrence over which he has no con-
trol," Jacobson said.
BOYS AND GIRLS at Camp Shalom learn the values of
doing what is "useful to the group." This is done by involving
the campers in group decision making and giving them respon-
sibility and "a stake in what happens at camp" through involve-
ment in their own program planning.
"The development and adjustment of the individual camper is
more important than the acquisition of specific skills or excelling
in competition." stated Bob Kessler, camp director. "In other
words, it is not our job to see that all campers are big league ball
players or champion swimmers. Our emphasis is. on the in-
dividual and the group. We play ball, swim, etc., because we
think that in such activities campers can learn how to relate to
each other while developing skills."

Lavon Affair Laid to Rest
Continued from Page 1
MARZOUK and Azar were
acknowledged to have been
Israeli agents who were trained in
an Israeli intelligence school in
the early 1950s. They were
arrested in 1954 after an abortive
attempt to bomb American
installations in Cairo which was
supposed to create a rift between
the U.S. and Egypt.
The failure of the mission led to
bitter recriminations in Israel,
the so-called Lavon Affair.

Marty Rubin,
People -Builder.
Marty Rubin is a cab driver.
He works hard for a living.
He also holds down another full time job.
People building.
Because Marty is Jewish,
he thinks about millions of Jews he's never met.
Marty knows the people of Israel are having a tough time.
They make impossible sacrifices to keep a dream alive.
Marty figures that's their part of the deal.
His part of the deal is to help out by giving.
Because when he gives,
housing gets built,
everyone goes to school,
immigrants get a new lease on life.
And Marty wants to be a part of it.
Marty Rubin is a people builder.
