I am especially touched by your recognition of the

martyrdom: to end human suffering, to seek justice

History will remember and honor you for daring to

I Israel "has not been responded to in a forthcoming

it national risks in demonstrating its own commit-

YOU HAVE raised the question of the Palestinian

All concerned Jews are well aware that In 1978 we celebrate 30
years of partnership between Israel and world Jewry.
The dreams, the aspirations, everything the State of Israel
stands for Is constantly being tested. During this period,
each of us has to decide what part we as individuals will
play In this partnership. To be Jewish, is to work for the
survival of the Jewish people; to carry on those traditions
which have been passed on through the centuries. Your name
has been borne by others before you. Your fate is not yours
alone. You cannot fulfill yourself as a Jew If you feel no
bond with those who share your dilemas, your celebrations
and even your contradictions. To deny your responsibilities
in the present is to destroy the past.
This Is what Jewish partnership is all about. The acceptance
of a collective goal which can only be achieved by the inter-
dependence of one Jew upon another.
The people in Israel have demonstrated over and over again
their devotion, their courage and their commitment. As
we are all called upon to give our financial support, we in
the diaspora must equally demonstrate that we' are worthy of
sharing with our brothers ->nd sisters this unique partnership.
We are truly a blessed generation. Jewish destiny is in
Jewish hands: your hands and my hands. Let us- together
fulfill the responsibilities and obligations.that we are
being called upon to meet.

and want to be certain that we do
not have to turn anyone away

Jewish Appeal Reports
Greater Response in CV
Century Villagers are responding to the 1978 Combined Jewish
Appeal-Israel Emergency Fund in greater numbers and with increased
giving, according to the first report by Abe Bisgaier, chairman of the
CV unit for the annual campaign conducted by the Jewish Federation
of Palm Beach County.
Sparking the early reports are results from the Greenbriar section
under the chairmanship of Rev. Martin Adolf and the Plymouth
section headed by Louis Weinstein and co-aides Morris Leader and
Bertha Ozer.
OTHER SECTIONS maintaining the pace-setting pattern are
Somerset spurred by Ada Columbus, Wellington with Sam Durbin as
chairman and Harriet Shapiro as co-chairman, Oxford under Louis
Bailey, Dorchester led by Lil Roaenzweig, Stratford guided by Max
Kelman and Southampton with Bob Ketzsia and Harry Lerner as
Sections also reporting gains are Andover, directed by Louis
Brown; Berkshire, led by Oscar Spiegel; Dover with Sol Margolis;
Hastings chaired by Bob Cahn; Kingswood headed by Jonas
Meyerson and Salisbury with chairman Dan Weiner.
Readying workers for all-out campaigning are Cambridge with
Malcolm Pitkin as chairman; Golfs Edge with co-chairmen Henry
Boodman and Dave Welsh; Canterbury in charge of Manny
Appelbaum; Windsor under co-leaders Sol Ganeles and Ben Sherman
and Easthampton organized by Ben Rothenberg.
WITH THE recent appointment of Joe Dorf as chairman of
Northampton, that section will shortly begin solicitation. Sections not
yet fully organized are receiving help from Rose Dunitz and Harry
Turbiner of Bedford; Sybil Senecoff at Chatham; Manny Goldman of
Camden; Jack Doroshkin and Louis Dickstein at Norwich and Dave
Simon and Charles Cahn of Sheffield.
Bisgaier attributes the campaign progress to the fact that the
volunteer workers are explaining that Israel needs more support now
than at any time in her thirty-year history.
"The United Jewish Appeal, the prime beneficiary of the local
drive, makes possible many of the social, health and welfare services in
Israel for the care of hundreds of thousands of refugees resettled since
World War II and the continuing resettlement, education and ab-
sorption of immigrants from the Soviet Union and other lands.
"DESPITE PAST sacrifices the people of Israel, in 1978. face
even greater economic hardship due to currency devaluation, runaway
inflation, reduction of subsidies for essential foods, the highest tax
burden in the world and a drastic drop in its standard of living."
In a message to Century Villagers. Bisgaier urged all residents to
welcome the volunteer workers and respond generously to the once-a-
year appeal.

Editor's Corner
An Appeal to the Worst
The Alexander Schindler response to President
Sadat's message to U.S. Jewry, the full text of which we
publish this week, is measured in its tones. The decision is
clearly to speak in a subdued and reasoned way not to
adopt the attitude of Sadat's own hatchetmen in Egypt's
controlled press, who last week went after Prime Minister
Begin specifically, and Israel and Jews generally, in the
most blatant anti-Semitic terms.
We join Rabbi Schindler in his affirmation of U.S.
Jewry's hope for peace in the Middle East. Beyond that,
we must say what Rabbi Schindler did not say because it
was clearly not "diplomatic."
We must say that the Sadat message was meddle-
some and manipulative. It was an appeal to the worst in
America, not the best. With consummate propagandistic
skill, it aimed to set Jews apart from the rest of the
community in the nation by raising less than subtle anti-
Semitic sentiments in non-Jews especially in regard to
American Jewish patriotism.
It suggested that Jews hold Israel's interests above
the interests of humanity generally and their own country
specifically as if there could be a real and meaningful
difference between these interests, as if the democratic
spirit of Israel, the Jewish people and American ideals do
not share a common ground and common aspirations.
Israelis Make the Decisions
What is worse, it less than subtly called upon
American Jews to apply pressure upon Israel to bend, to-a
Middle East solution a la Sadal as.' quite obviously. Sadat
intends this weekend to ask of President Carter.
What President Sadat purposely overlooked is that
his message should be to the Government of I srael and the
Israeli people. It is they who control their own destiny. It
is they who determine what they will do. and what the)
will not do.
American Jews do not formulate Israeli policy. I^est
President Sadat would reply that this is a cop-out. let him
review the careers of such stellar leaders as David Ben-
Gurion. who time and again told those misguided
members of the American Jewish community who at-
tempted to tell him what Israel ought to do to mind theirt
own business to keep supporting Israel materially and
spiritually, but to keep their political advice to them-
Ben-Gurion was especially acid on this subject
because of the obvious dearth in numbers of American
Jews making aliya, although he was quick to note that
even aliya would only entitle American Jews-turned-
Israeli to an individual vote.
Is it Peace or Propaganda
Finally, we would remind President Sadat of his own
wise observation after the initial breakdown'of the talks.
Let us. he said, continue but without the presence of a
world press looking over our shoulder.
Quite clearly, he has changed his tack. What he
couldn't get on the battlefield, he tried to get with his
ingenue visit to Jerusalem. What he couldn't get in
Jerusalem, he is now trying to get in the world press.
The question President Sadat must resolve for
himself is whether he wants to make peace or propaganda.

Sadat and ERA: Study in Irony
WITH SOME considerable
concern, I have noted over the
past few months a growing anti-
feminist sentiment among Jewish
community leaders. By
"growing," I mean not that it has
not been there before, but that it
has become increasingly vocal.
This anti-feminism spans the
gamut from so distinguished a
civil libertarian as Morris Abram,
once would you believe?, presi-
dent of the American Jewish
Committee, to friends of mine in
the local rabbinate who delight in
making nasty comments about
women in general and the Equal
Rights Amendment in particular.
NX we'll change A tffiiE
IN A recent column, I sug-
gested that the ERA and
feminism can no longer be a
partisan sexual or even religious
cause religious in the sense
that the most orthodox elements
in all western religions, and even
some eastern ones, are to my
knowledge anti-feminist at least
to the extent that they are dead
set against the way in which so
many women see themselves
I said that to be anti-ERA, for
example, is to become a part of a
growing extreme-right wing

things, is to be less than subtly

Jew meaning that, of.course, they'

OR, "Your commitment should'

AS FOR the people of Israel,
you yourself told me when you
received me at your residence in
Aswan earlier this month how
deeply encouraged you were by
the warmth of your reception in
Jerusalem, not only before but
also after your strong Knesset
speech. "The Israelis wore their
hearts on their faces," you told
What you saw, Mr. President,
were the hearts of parents and
widows and orphans of Israel's
soldiers fallen in battle. There is
hardly a family in that tiny land
which has not suffered the loss of
a loved one in the wars of 1948.
1956, 1967, 1973. And yet Israel's
people poured out into the streets
and waived little Egyptian flags
as you drove by. A people such as
his share a commitment to peace
no less than your own.
I must also demur from your
evaluation of Israel's expressed
concerns as "procedural and peri-
pheral." Israel's quest for care-
fully defined security arrange-
ments is not peripheral; it goes to
the very heart of the matter.
CAN THERE be any doubt
that Israel itself must guard the
very peace we seek? Not for pur-
poses of "annexation" or "for-
eign rule" or "military occupa-
tion.'' not for the "suppression of
the rights of the Palestinian peo-
ple hut simply to protect human
lives Arab as well,as Jewish
from PLO terrorists still sworn to
Israel's destruction, from the
dangers of Soviet incursion and
from enemies who have de-
nounced you as a traitor to the
Arab cause for your desire to live
in peace with the Jewish state.
Is it unreasonable for Israel to
ish to defend itself against such
Your impatience conveys the
impression that you disdain the
negotiating process in its en-
tirety, preferring a prior agree-
ment or an imposed solution. You
even say that you did not come to
Jerusalem "to strike a bargain or
to reach a compromise."
YET THIS is what Americans
understand the negotiating pro-
cess to be all about: an opportu-
nity not only to break down psy-
chological barriers but also to
narrow differences in the give and
lake of dialogue.
Our experience living in a de-
mocracy has persuaded us that
there can be no agreement with-
out compromise, no settlement of
disputes without mutual conces-
sions. I believe all American Jews
share the commitment to peace
that informs your letter. But we
are troubled by the implications
it contains that the only appro-
priate response to your initiative
is an unqualified acceptance of
Egypt's full demands.
YOUR LETTER further states
you understand that American
Jews support Israel because the
Jews are a people, one people .
because Israel offers a home, a
refuge, a place of dignity to every
lew because a strong and free
and democratic State of Israel is
essential to the security of our
own country, America.
I look forward to your impend-
ing visit to our shores. Perhaps
we can continue our dialogue
then. Of this I am certain, that
though we have not yet found a
common way, we do share a com-
mon purpose.
IT IS A lofty purpose, worthy
of our striving: peace with jus-
tice; not only to avoid the. trage-
dies of the past but to reap that
rich harvest of the better life
which the full and free and coop-
erative effort between Egypt and
Israel, born of peace, can bring.
Let us therefore truly reason
together, summoning the re-
quired energy and will to make
the dream of peace the fact of
Let us together call on the oth-
er Arab nations that still fear and
reject peace to join us in the
sacred mission of its attainment.
AND LET US pray to him who
is enthroned above our praises.
May he bless the work of our
hands and hearts. Then will the
promise of the Prophet be ful-

but knew of the existing contacts

sibility for developing Morocco
from ancient to modern times.
WITH A casual smile, he
quashed a rumor that Israel's
Moshe Dayan was then in secret
conference in Marrakesh.
"Not yet," he smiled.
Such a visit, however, "is not
impossible," he remarked matter-
King Hassan, he affirmed, has
striven "to facilitate the steps to
peace," while working for a "rea-
sonable settlement."
Osman was "very hopeful"
that "sooner or later" Syria
would join Sadat in the peace ini-
tiative with Israel. Jordan, too.
(This was before last week's
breakdown of negotiations.)
There is "no problem" with
Saudi Arabia, he affirmed.
He even hopes the "OLP," the
French version of PLO, will join
in the talks. While they initially
took themselves out, "still, we
think it is not impossible to con-
vince them."
MEANWHILE, Sadat has
made "very concrete proposals"
to the Israel side.
Palestinians, he said, "should
decide their own fate," though
"our position" is that the PLO
represents the Palestinians. "But
that doesn't mean that sooner or
later one should not consult the
Palestinian population." The
Palestinians are aware of that
fact, he noted.
"For years, the (PLO) leaders
have lived a little bit away from
the (Palestinian) population."

marked that "some analysts"
question how Israel will live in a

perhaps jocularly, that "Israel is

"Peace will bring big changes

Israel faces a peace problem, that

Palestinians Must be Included Carter
President Carter said Monday
that Middle East negotiations
must deal "in all its aspects with
the Palestinian question." He
also said that he will recommend
to Congress this week the weap-
ons to be provided to Israel.
Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iran.
He said that Israel has estab-
lished no new settlement at Shi-
loh on the West Rank, as report
ed earlier by State Department
sources, and that there was only
an archaeological excavation pro-
ject at that site. He said he had
no plans for delineating Israel's
IN RESPONSE to questior-s
at a White House press confer-
ence, the President also said thai
he does not have "any inclination
to intercede further" into the
planned march by American Na-
zis in the heavily Jewish-populat-
ed suburb of Skokie, 111. He noted
that "this question is in the
hands of the court."
However. Carter said he de-
plored the planned Nazi march.
"I wish this demonstration of an
abhorrent political and social
philosophy would not be present
at all." he said. He added that
within the framework of Consti-
tutional guarantees of freedom of
speech "I believe that under
carefully controlled conditions,
the courts have ruled that it is le-
gal and they (the Nazis) have a
legal right to act this way."
Asked for a "general outline"
of his views on "helping Egypt
acquire arms." Carter replied
that for a number of years the
U.S. has faced the prospect of
providing "some weapons" to the
Middle East "heavily to Israel
and also to Saudi Arabia and
Iran and. to some degree, non-at-
tack weapons to Egypt."
CARTER SAID that all these
nations have requested us for
weapons. They have been com-
mitted to some degree by my two
predecessors and reconfirmed in
some instances by me."
He said that the National Se-
curity Council will report to him
early this week on the basis of
advice from the Pentagon, the
State Department and National
Security Adviser Zbigniew Brze-
zinski what weapons to recom-
mend to the Congress and he will
make his recommendations later
this week. Congress can veto

Carter said Egypt has asked
for F-5E fighter aircraft which
are manufactured for "export
purposes primarily" while Saudi
Arabia asked for "other weap-
ons." He noted that the Saudis
already have "some" F-5s. He
did not mention what weapons
were requested by Israel or Iran.

sources, for more than a week,
have been suggesting that in
view of opposition in Congress to
the sale of 60 ultra-sophisticated

achieved by lumping them to-
gether with the provisions of

that the U.S. position on settle-

is that "they are illegal and that
they are an obstacle to peace."

is some flexibility there and that

U.S. pressure on Israel to yield to
his demand.
What Israel had offered the
Kgyptians was more than de-
manded by international law,
morality, or even Resolution 242,
the Ambassador said.
Israels ardent desire to seek
peace remains undiminished, the
Ambassador stressed.
Karlier, Sen. Church had told
the session that "an absolutely
fundamental change had taken
place in the whole context of
Middle East affairs when Pres-
ident Sadat visited Jerusalem.
This act had eliminated the single
most fundamental obstacle to
any peacemaking process."
SEN. CHURCH vigorously re-
asserted the two points on which
the U.S. and Israel are firmly in
agreement. First, "an indepen-
dent Palestinian state, which
would be a base for war against
Israel, aligned with the Soviet
Union and acting as a destabiliz-
ing agent of Soviet foreign policy
is a danger to all the regimes in
the Middle East. It would be un-
acceptable," he said.
The senator also drew applause
for his views on the future status
of Jerusalem. "It is my view that
this city of beauty and peace
must never again be divided," he
said. He thought that if ways can
be found for the other questions
to be resolved, the status of Jeru-
salem would also be soluble.

ordinating council for a second

Court Approval of Nazi March Denounced by Many Sources
court challenges appear certain
against the ruling last Friday by
the Illinois Supreme Court that
American Nazis have the consti-
tutional right to display the
swastika during protest inarches
in the heavily Jewish community
of Skokie, a Chicago suburb,
where 7,000 survivors of the Ho-
locaust now live.
The long-delayed ruling re-
moved only one of the obstacles
to a planned march by the Na-
tional Socialist Party of America
in Skokie. Other barriers are a se-
ries of ordinances adopted by the
Skokie Village Council banning
marches in military-style uni-
forms and requiring protesters to
post a heavy bond before a de-
THE STATE Supreme Court
ruling, which overturned a lower
court decision, was hailed by the
Nazis and by the American Civil
Liberties Union, which has repre-
sented the Nazis, and denounced
by Skokie officials and Jewish or-
The State Supreme Court ruled
that "the display of the swastika,
as offensive to the principles of a
free nation as the memories it re-
calls may be, is symbolic political
speech intended to convey to the
public the beliefs of those who
display it."
The lower court had ruled that
the swastika could be banned on
grounds that it constituted
"fighting words" that might pro-
voke violence. Skokie residents
have warned they will not be pas-
sive if the Nazis march.
HOWEVER, the State Su-
preme Court disagreed, saying
display of the swastika could not
be banned "solely because that
display may provoke a violent
reaction by those who view it."
The court said Skokie residents
could ignore the march if they
considered it offensive.
Leaders of Chicago's Jewish
community reacted with disap-
pointment to the ruling and with
determination to continue oppo-
sition to it. David Smerling,
president, and James P. Rice,
executive vice-president of the
Jewish Federation and Jewish
United Fund of Metropolitan
Chicago, declared in a statement:
"WE ARE disturbed at the
news that the court upheld the
obviously flagrant use of a sym-
bol that meant deliberate exter-
mination to six million Jews and
five million Christian civilians."
They added that "for the
courts to allow the citizens of
Skokie both Jews and Chris-

They said they hoped the village

Smerling and Rice also cited
another case, initiated by Sol
Goldstein, a Skokie resident and
Holocaust survivor, who has ap-
plied for a permanent injunction
against the proposed Nazi march.
Goldstein, who brought the suit
cision and that if the village did
not do so, "there are fortunately
a number of other court cases
that must be decided before the
Nazi march on Skokie can be-
come a reality."
THEY CITED the ordinances
against the wearing of military-
style uniforms, the $350,000 bond
posting order and a Skokie ban
on the dissemination of material
that could incite hatred of a race
or religion. These ordinances
have been challenged in federal

i despises me. I 'm sure of it, but
|s strange I can find little evi-
ct it. Do you suppose that
hat I've told him isn't so bad?
it possible that I need not be
|hamed of it as a part of me?
I didn't realize that exploring
unknown recesses of myself
[>uld make me feel feelings I've
ver experienced before. It isn't
easant to feel things I've
vays been frightened of before,
his fault, yet curiously I'm
|ger to see him and I feel more
ife when I 'm with him.
"I DON'T know who I am any-
ore. but sometimes when I (eel
linns I seem solid and real for a
jment. I'm troubled by the
Intradictions I find in myself,
pmetimes I catch myself feeling
perhaps the person I am is
rth being, whatever that
"I'm beginning to find it very
ktisfying, though often painful,
(share just what it is I'm feeling
this moment. You know, it is
really helpful to try to listen to
myself, to hear what is going on
in me. I'm not so frightened any-
more of what is going on in me.
"It seems pretty trustworthy.
It's scary work, but I want to
know. It occurs to me as I try to
let myself down and down, that
maybe if I could sense what is
going on in me, I would know
who I am.
"I CAN tell him just how I'm
feeling toward him at any given
moment and instead of killing the
relationship, as I used to fear, it
seems to deepen it. Do you sup-
pose I could bare my feelings
with other people also?
"You know, I feel as if I'm
floating along on the current of
life. I get defeated sometimes, I
get hurt sometimes but I'm
learning that those experiences
are not fatal. I don't know exact-
ly who I am, but I can feel my
reactions, and they seem to work
out pretty well. Maybe this is
what it means to be me. But of
course I can only do this because
I feel safe in the relationship with
my therapist. Or could I be my-
self this way outside of this rela-
tionship? I wonder, I wonder.
Perhaps I could."
This, then, in highly capsulized
form, is the process. When I
reach the last statement, above,
with one of my clients, my entire
inner being experiences a warm,
generous feeling of mazel too.

which he described as founded a
century ago by St. Louis
businessmen to promote events
that would attract people to the

RESPONDING to a question
from Sen. Strom Thurmond (R.,

Prophets group, Webster said the
organization had no Blacks
among its 1,000-1,200 members,
adding that it "can be criticized
for that."
He said, "As far as I know,
there are no restrictions on race
or religion in that organization."

a child, on the ship, the Exodus.
UCHILL announced that the
Fountains-campaign had raised a
record sum of over $68,500, with
still many pledges not received.
"We arc most encouraged by
the hear arming response of the

MORE recent experience
involves a Pro-Family Conference
(anti-ERA) in Orlando on Jan.
14. One workshop dedicated itself
to the notion that "The State of
Florida has been providing tax
dollars to your schools to buy
books which promote perversion,
immorality, attack and under-
mine Christianity..."
Another featured a discussion
of parenting conducted by one
Shands Rhea who, among other
things* is listed 4s a member of
Minutewoman. suddenly the
quintessence of kashrut.
Perhaps the most absurd of the
workshops, was the one on
humanism, described as "a
Godless religion being inculcated
in the public schools ... this
(io'dless humanism is being
pushed upon our children doing
ihem great-harm."
I,MENTION this last work-
shop, rrjainly because of Anwar
Sa'dat's appeal "to the rule of
' legitimacy and the sublime
'norms of humanism." Before the
extreme-right wing gets its
. dppder up .any higher on
. humahism as a Godless religion.
It had better set its signals
, straight with its anti-Zionist
phalanx for whom the call to
humanism is such a heartfelt
Perhaps what anti-feminist
Jews ought to examine and
digest more efficiently than they
have thus far is the extent of the
anti-Semitic vitriol with which
they seem to be aligning them-
Open workshops at Pro-Family
conferences are tame, with some
exceptions, compared, say, to
Sandra Ellison of the National
Socialist White People's Party,
who opines that "The next time
you read something about a rally
supporting the ERA or see
something on your TV news, take
a good look at the demonstrators.
You will probably see fat, ugly,
stringy-haired lesbians in droopy
T-shirts, fanantical Jewesses,
and loud-mouthed minorities."
ANOTHER Ellison witticism
is her reference to ERA forces as
a scraggly coalition of dykes
and kikes." Lest one should tend
to discount this as purely Nazi
propaganda, take note that at the
November IWY meeting in
Houston, there were signs around
the Colosseum rhyming "Kikes
for Dykes" all over the place.
A final word about the ex-
ceptions to which I alluded
previously in discussing the
vitriol at Pro-Family conferences
generally. At the Jan. 14 Orlando
gathering, the voting records of
legislators on ERA were made
available in reams of mimeograph
While it was generally advised
that anti-ERA forces not be
"pushy," it was nevertheless
made clear that if a legislator
votes the "wrong way." a coor-
dinated, systematic political
bloodletting would be in the
offing, "a political surgery" that
the patient is not intended to
survive, words chillingly
reminiscent of American Nazi
Party Fuehrer Frank Collin's
intentions for U.S. Jewry.
"AN AMUSING sidelight,"
report James and Shirley Correll,
of Lakeland, "was that the Pro-
Family delegates (at the Orlando
conference) repeatedly accused
groups promoting the ERA of
pressuring (italics mine)
In the end, however, there is
nothing amusing about any of
this. I am not saying that anti-
ERA is anti-Semitic. But more
often than we know, it is. And
always, it is anti-human.

** Eabbtnical ^^
devoted to discussion of themes and issues
relevant to Jewish life past and present
Jewish Law and New Realities
Temple Beth El
Jewish survived over a 3,000-
year period is one of the anoma-
lies of history. To the non-Jew,
the ability of the Jewish people to
live in different cultures, both
hospitable and inhospitable, to
survive the worst persecutions of
an overwhelmingly hostile non-
Jewish society, and to prosper
whenever given tolerance, under-
standing and opportunity, re-
mains one of the great enigmas.
While our survival as a people
is due to many factors, there is no
doubt that the single most im-
portant one is summed up by the
two words tradition and change.
FOR 3,000 years, our people
has handed down from father to
son certain modes of behavior
that embodied certain moral im-
peratives. These customs, cere-
monies, laws and practices served
throughout the ages to bind each
and every Jew to all the Jews
who preceded him.
It was this holding fast to the
traditions embodying the Jewish
beliefs which gave the Jewish
people the necessary stability to
withstand the many pressures
which were brought to bear upon
One of the great hazards of any
tradition is that it will become ri-
gid, fossilized, and inapplicable
to the needs of the adherents of
that tradition. At that point,
those who adhere to the tradition
find that it fails them.
THOSE who do away with the
tradition find that they no longer
retain the sense of identity which
such a tradition engenders. The
middle road of adapting the tra-
dition to changed circumstances
and applying it to the new needs
of its adherents allows the adher-
ents to retain their identities and
at the same time preserve the es-
sence of their tradition.
While there were many people
in the past who had well defined
and strong traditions, it is the
Jewish genius which devised a
method by which the Jewish tra-
dition could be changed in a flex-
ible manner so that it would be
responsive to the needs of Jews
at all times and in all places.
The Talmud and Midrash, the
response literature, and modern
rabbinic interpretations of Jew-
ish law are all examples of the
workings of this Jewish genius
throughout history.
WE LIVE in an age during
which there has been more
change and more rapid change
than in any other period in hu-
man history. We have reached
the point where the sum total of
all human knowledge doubles in
approximately 15 to 20 years,
and this rate of change is acceler-
It is no wonder, therefore, that
rabbis and Jewish scholars have
$ TIME $4
3ADAR 1-5738

been hard put to adapt Jewish
tradition to the realities of the
amazingly changed lives which
we lead. That we have succeeded
thus far is remarkable, but the
challenges which we face in the
decades ahead will tax the imag-
ination, ingenuity, scholarship
and intelligence of the wisest in-
terpreters of Jewish tradition.
Modem science and technology
are presenting us at the present
with new realities never consid-
ered by our forefathers. Such
problems as what life is and what
death is can no longer be an-
swered solely by the traditions
which existed before the advent
of artificial respirators, heart
transplants and other techniques
and devices which allow a person
to be kept "alive" indefinitely.
QUESTIONS of the "right to
live" and the "right to die" are
not as easily answered as they
were in the days before "heroic
measures" of modern medicine
came into being. The question of
"test-tube" babies or surrogate
mothers, some of whose aspects
may be a reality in the immediate
future, are obviously beyond the
ken of Jewish law before our
time. These are just a few exam-
ples of areas where Jewish tradi-
tion will eventually be changed to
meet the needs of Jews living in
new realities.
I have no doubt that, just as
the wisdom of our forefathers was
able to apply Jewish tradition to
the changed circumstances of
their time, we, in our time, will be
able to apply the techniques of
scholarship, commitment and
wisdom to the continued growth
and application of the Jewish tra-
dition to the very real problems
of human beings in our time.

altar of acacia-wood, covered with cop-per. Finally, the

\ear of Opportunities.
For Peace.
For thirty embattled
years, through five
wars, the people of
Israel dreamed of
It seemed an impos-
sible dream, ans-
wered only by silence
and impasse.
Now, at last, there is
an opportunity to
turn that dream into
reality, for this
generation and gene-
rations to come.
Where there was
silence, there is
negotiation. Where
there was impasse,
there is movement.
We have shared the
dream of peace with
them. We rejoice in
their opportunity.
Our hopes and
prayers are with them
as they move, step
by step, along the
road to a new era in
the Middle East-
For Life.
For thirty life-
supporting years, the
American Jewish
community has been
concerned with the
critical human needs
facing Israel's people.
Our concern has been
strongest in years
of open or threat-
ened war. But it has
never been strong
enough to end poverty
among Israel's immi-
grants, or inequality,
or inadequate hous-
ing and education.
Now we have the
opportunity to show
that the prospect
of peace motivates
us to give more
than we gave in
time of war.
In our 1978 OJA/
Federation cam-
paign, we will
seize that opportu-
nity by acting
boldly and decis-
ively to sustain,
build and improve
the quality of life.
