Alan L. Shulman, general cam-
paign chairman for the Jewish
Federation Palm Beach County's
1978 Combined United Jewish
Appeal-Israel Emergency Fund
Campaign, announced that the
campaign has passed the SI
million mark.
"I am encouraged by the ef-
forts to date," Shulman stated.
"On a card for card basis we are
running approximately 45
percent ahead; counting new
gifts from first time contributors
to our campaign, we show better
than an 80 percent increase. Our
results are due largely to the
dedicated chairmen and workers
of the campaign.''
SHULMAN went on to say
how pleased he was with the
general organization and
coverage which has been
exhibited thus far. "We have a
two-fold purpose in this cam-
paign one obviously is to raise
as much money as we can to help
Jews in need no matter where
they are. The others is to get as
many contributors as possible
involved so that we can maintain

miracles can be created.

program designed to pay tribute
to "miracles" created by the
WOmen's concerned efforts and
commitment on behalf of the
Combined Jewish Appeal-Israel

has achieved national recognition
by receiving the 1077 Public
Relations Award from the
Council of Jewish Federations

centrating on one designer, we
are going to show a potpourri of
many designers." Ms. Harris
added. "Our food manager, Peter
Gouletas, is preparing a very
attractive menu for the cham-
pagne supper, and Bill Kostel-

Sadat Telegraphs Message
We grow pessimistic about the outcome of the Israeli-
Egyptian peace talks. The reason has much to do with
Prime Minister Begins charge this week that the United
States has come out openly as an advocate of Egypt's
But that is putting the cart before the horse. The real
issue is that the talks, as former Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger observed in Atlanta last week, have moved from
the bargaining chambers in Jerusalem and Cairo to the
front pages of the world press.
President Sadat telegraphed his intention to play to
the gallery when, at the outset, he joined Begin in a public
declaration to keep the press at arm's length because only
under* that circumstance could their deliberations be
successful rather than a Madison Avenue-orchestrated
propaganda circus.
Too many of us did not read the pious Sadat intention
correctly. Too many of us took him at his word rather than
prepare ourselves for just the opposite.
For just the opposite is in fact what is now occurring.
Egypt's Sadat is not so much in the midst of hopeful
negotiations for a Middle East peace as he is in the midst
of a propagandistic carnival where he seems to be running
away with all the prizes.
Israel's Propaganda Deficiences
What Israel had better come to grips with, and
quickly, is that she has never managed her public relations
affairs properly, relying instead on worn-out saws in
volving the Holocaust, the painful Diaspora experience,
and the historic Jewish right to the land of Israel.
These things work well enough for us as Jews. They
stimulate our determination to support Israel in every
way. They appeal to our need to see the unhappy
European Jewish experience through millennia of history
But they mean nothing to the rest of the world which,
need anyone be reminded?, was responsible for the
unhappy European Jewish experience, took delight in it.
and is essentially indifferent to its consequences on Jews
even today.
They mean nothing to an uninformed American press
which gullibly takes the bait in viewing Sadat as the Lone
Ranger of the Arab world and which increasingly pillories
Israel on its editorial pages.
Why does Israel continue to grind it out?
The Arabs, on the other hand, and Sadat particularly,

If Israel continues to be deficient even amateurish
in its public relations, none of the wars in which she

AMERICA has a growing
separatist movement of its own,
and we should be on guard
against the movement and its
advocates. It is virtually im-
possible to identify the advocates
by name, which makes the
American movement different
from the Canadian, where Rene
Levesque stands at the phalanx
of many activists struggling for
an independent French-speaking
Far from making our own
separatist movement less
dangerous, the anonymity in fact
makes it a good deal more in-
sidious. In Canada, Prime
Minister Trudeau can call upon
the English-speaking population
to "bury (Rene) Levesque" in
next year's referendum on the
future of Quebec whether
Quebec remains an integral part
of Canada or carries out its threat
to establish an independent
political entity.
IN CANADA these days,
Levesque stands for separatism,
and a Canadian can be pro or anti
simply by supporting or op-
posing Levesque himself.
In the U.S., the problem is far
more subtle. American
separatism is a system of cultural
philosophies rather than an
individual or individuals
representing a political
philosophy born from the
political needs of separate
cultural groups. Our own ex-
periment in political separatism
was brief and rejected as absurd.
It began and ended during the
Black revolution of the 1960's,
when a number of Black leaders
Buey Newton, B. Rapp
Brown, Ron Karenga, Stokely
Carmichael demanded
reparations in the form of in-
dividual states in the Union that
would be handed over to

Blacks have never represented
a sufficiently potent financial
force to intimidate us. We could
laugh at the demand and jail the
Black movement's leaders as
BUT IF we laughed such
notions of political separatism
out of existence then, we are now
being led toward them via the
back door of cultural separatism,
which is how the Canadian pre-
dicament began in the first place,
and from which we ought to be
prepared to learn some grave
lessons here.
To begin with, unlike the Black
experience, there is money behind
this movement, which may not as
yet have made the political
transfer, but which stomps for
cultural separatism with a gusto
that is disheartening because it is

indifferent to Americas past. Its
purpose, like the fledgling Black
experience before it, is not to
integrate, but to separate.
More to the point, we are not
so much being led toward this
separatism as we are actively and
enthusiastically endorsing it
because we fail to see the wolf's
political element in the move-
ment disguised in the sheep's
clothing of cultural pluralism.
I SAID in a column here last
week that American separatism
began as an academic
phenomenon following World
War II as a consequence of our
demand for the instantaneous
development of a scientific and
technological elite bred at the
expense of the humanities.
The consequences of this, I
noted, was the establishment of
an academic zombie class a
generation of illiterate techno-
freaks graduated from colleges
and universities with depressed
standards of excellence.
Since that time, the situation
has worsened. While we have
finally begun to heed the voices
warning us against the inad-
visability of separating science
and technology from the rest of
the academic curriculum, while
we have finally begun to move
toward reuniting these dis-
ciplines with the humanities on
the equivalent basis they once
enjoyed or nearly so we
have at the same time launched
into a new separatism, the
cultural separatism to which I
have already referred.
CULTURAL separatism is
potentially far more dangerous to
the nation than academic
separatism ever was. The new
generation of illiterate techno-
freaks will take at least another
generation to repair, and it is not
they who will be returned to a
semblance of academic normalcy
but perhaps their children.
The best we can do for the
freak is to teach him that it will
be desirable for him to have
children who are not freaks, who
1'TfuitC gfettfiSH c
They're poisoning world opinion instead
are literate, and to instill in him
the courage to inspire his children
toward that end. To more than
this, the freak is, himself, lost.
But cultural separatism lends
itself to no such "simple"
solutions. Inevitably, cultural
separatism is the father of
political separatism, and for
American civilization, that is
WHAT MUST be understood
is that cultural separatism is not
the same as cultural pluralism.
They are, substantially, 0fr
posites. The latter marks this
nation as its predominant
characteristic a characteristic
that lends the U.S. its manifold
strength and that was. by
definition, its manifest destiny
from the beginnings of its
Cultural pluralism was the
handle of this nation as a melting
pot, the crucible in which a
variety of cultures and civiliza-
tions were ultimately fired into
the unique amalgam we call
American. The melting pot was
not a fixture of the ovens of
cultural genocide. Respecting the
individuality of all newcomers,
the melting pot encouraged them
to continue their homage to their
past, if that is what they wished,
while at the same time bringing
the multitudinous elements of
diverse cultures into the unique
harmony of the American brew.
Primarily, and most important
to the process, the single active
American component was respect
no more than that.
IN THE Jewish experience, for
example, it was the various
Jewish congregations, Talmud
Torahs. benevolent societies,
welfare agencies and other such
sectarian organizations that kept
what is understood as being
uniquely Jewish alive. It was the
national respect that permitted
them to function. But it was up
to the Jews, themselves, to
maintain their traditional and
diaspora cultural ties to their
past, whether that past was
Russian or Polish or Rumanian or
Hungarian or German or
Lithuanian, or whatever.
It was not up to the United
States or to any lower level of
government to keep these ties
The other side of the coin, the
melting pot side, was an
American enterprise in the form
of granting citizenship, sup-
porting night schools and other
classes of citizenship, the English
language, American history and
customs for the newcomers to
help in the integration process.
This is all well-documented in
I^eo Rosten and Sholem Asch and
Abe Cahan, among others,
novelists whose works depict the
agonizing rise of immigrants to
the proud status of being an
WHAT WE have today, and
particularly here in South
Florida, is just the opposite.
Today, the various levels of
government actively participate
in helping immigrant cultures,
notably the Cuban, stay out of
the melting pot. Today, the
various levels of government
contribute funds and establish
laws advocating cultural aeP"
In dealing with the Black com-
munity now riding its surfboard
on the Hispanic wave, they play
by the same rules. The melting
pot fire has been banked. It is as
if we fear being charged with
cultural genocide if we point out

The Jewish Fbridian of Palm Beach CoUHty
Leaders Gall for Strength
At UJA Conference
Israel Admits Selling Arms to Ethiopia
Young Jewish leaders from
across the United States are
calling for a "show of strength"
at the first United Jewish Appeal
National Young Leadership Con-
ference, a three-day symposium
on current national and inter-
national issues of major Jewish
concern, being held in Washing-
ton, D.C. at the Shoreham Amer-
icana Hotel, Feb. 26-28.
The conference, sponsored by
the UJA Young Leadership
Cabinet in conjunction with the
UJA Young Women's Leader-
ship Cabinet, will feature
dialogues and informational
sessions with officials of the
Carter Administration, the Israel
Government, U.S. Government
agencies and leading academ-
icians and social scientists from
both countries.
MORE THAN 1,000 men and
women, representing Jewish
communities carrying out UJA
Federation fund-raising cam-
paigns throughout the country,
are expected to attend, including
15 representatives from the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County who include:

Chairman Neil A. Cooper and
Jane Sherman, chairman of the
Women's Cabinet, were joined by
regional chairmen and other
officers of the two cabinets in a
call to the Washington assembly.
"THE National Conference
will give the young Jewish
leaders of America the oppor-
tunity to assert their collective
strength, vitality and commit-
ment," said Neil A. Cooper,
Young Leadership Cabinet
"In Washington, in dialogues
with influential figures on the
world scene, we hope to achieve
the depth of understanding
needed to strengthen our efforts
during the crucial period ahead in
the 1978 fund-raising campaigns
in our communities," he said.
Ms. Sherman said the un-
precedented gathering would be
an affirmation of American
Jewish solidarity with the people
of Israel as they move toward the
30th anniversary of their in-
"WE WHO have studied our
heritage and feel a strong link to

nificant numbers at this first
nationwide conference in our
nation's capital."

Thomas D. Byer, associate

needs of Israel and be better

said, "We're going to Washing-

Steven J. Appel, of Milwaukee,
said, "To bring together people

eign Minister Moshe Dayan
admitted prior to his departure
for the U.S. that Israel sells arms
to Ethiopia to be used in its war
against Somalia. In an interview
with Israel Radio from Zurich,
Dayan said he saw no reason to
conceal the fact.
The Foreign Minister pointed
out that Israel has a strong
interest in maintaining friendly
relations with Ethiopia, a
country located along the Red
Sea, the waterway by which
tankers come to Israel. Dayan
said Israel did not send any
troops or aircraft to Ethiopia.
THIS WAS the first time an
Israeli official has publicly ad-
mitted that Israel has supplied
military aid to Ethiopia although
it has been an open secret for 20
years. Israeli aid started during
the regime of Emperor Haile
During that time, there was a
military mission in Ethiopia and
Ethiopian officers frequently
came to Irael for various types of
training. After the Yom Kippur
War, Somalia, like most African
countries, broke relations with
Israel's present aid to Ethiopia
began about a year ago when it
was asked to give such aid by the
government which had over-
thrown the Emperor in 1974.
ISRAEL agreed to do so and
continues the aid despite the fact
that Ethiopia now also receives
aid from the Soviet Union and
Cuba. It was reliably learned that
Israeli aid includes ammunition,
uniforms, first aid equipment,
tents and other items of this
However, Defense Ministry
sources were somewhat taken
aback by Dayan's acknowledge-
ment of the fact. The Foreign
Minister made his statement
after the Israeli involvement had
received heavy publicity in the
world Dress. ___

What is Shiloh for Real?
Shiloh is not a nascent settle-
ment, and therefore the Settle-
ment Department of the World
Zionist Organization will not
offer it the usual help given to
settlements. This was made clear
by a department spokesman to a
TV interviewer here.

Shiloans' frank assertions that
they wished to turn the place into
a Jewish settlement. But it was
for the government, not for them,
to determine where and when
settlements would be sited.
Foreign Minister Dayan has
said he "admired" the Shiloans'
frank assertions that they wished
to turn the place into a Jewish
settlement. But it was for the
. government, not for them, to
DOrOthV RailtbOrd determine where and when settle-
* ments would be sited.
TO ReCeiVe Award DAYAN spoke to newsmen
before leaving for Switzerland en
route to the U.S.
The settlement issue, exacer-
bated by the Shiloh episode, was
expected to take up a good deal of
the Foreign Minister's time in the
U.S. The Cabinet despite
James Reston's prediction in a
New York Times article did
not issue a statement clarifying
the settlement matter, nor was
there any formal reference to it at
all in the official bulletin.
But Cabinet Secretary Arye
Naor did reiterate to newsmen
the government's position that
the Shiloans were "archaeol-
ogists," having received the
requisite permits from the
military and civilian authorities
to conduce a dig at the ancient
onetime site of the Israelite
SO LONG as they did nothing
in contravention of those per-
mits, Naor said, no action would
be taken against them. What
they said to newsmen or others
was of no legal import; what
mattered was what they did.
Thus if they set up a bank at
the spot, this would plainly be an
infringement, Naor explained,

The Palm Beach Chapter of the

Mrs. Rautbord has been a

because one does not need a bank
in order to excavate antiquities.
A branch of the Kupat Holim-
Medical Organization was
another matter, because one did
need medical care. Yigael Yadin
had also had medical care on
hand when he excavated Masada,
Naor noted.
HE DID NOT say whether a
kindergarten for the several
infant "archaeologists" at Shiloh
would be an infringement.
The Shiloans themselves con-
tinued to tell interviewers that
they saw themselves as the
nucleus of a new settlement
rather than as archaeologists.
Reporters, moreover, saw no
evidence of any preparations for
an archaeological dig at the site.
There was no information as to
whether the permits issued
stipulated any time limit for the
completion of the "dig."
A FEELING of intense dis-
comfort over Shiloh continues to
pervade all but the most extreme
nationalist circles in Israeli
political life. The charges of
duplicity, lack of good faith, and
double-dealing that have been
leveled by commentators in the
U.S. have echoed with resonance
here, as have the accusations that
the Begin government is showing
weakness in its dealings with
Gush Kmunim.
The Prime Minister himself did
little to alleviate the criticism
when he was reported telling his
Herat Party that "this govern-
ment is a settling government."

proudly reported to him that at
night, in Samaria, the lights of
Jewish settlements could be seen
twinkling. At the same time, said

An Open Letter to President Sadat
Dear Mr. President:
Thank you very much for your
open letter to American Jews. It
gives me an opportunity to ex-
press my thoughts in plain Eng-
lish, to give you the reaction of
the average American Jew to the
recent events in the Middle East.
I only wish that Messrs. Begin
and Dayan would exhibit the
same intuitive flair for public re-
lations which you so expertly de-
SIR, I cannot conceive that
you really expected that your
brave, bold and highly imagina-
tive initiative in addressing the
Israel Knesset that this ges-
ture, undoubtedly most signifi-
cant, but nevertheless a gesture
- would cause the Israeli gov-
ernment to cede forthwith all the
occupied territories including
Kast Jerusalem and agree to self-
determination of the Palestini-
After all, the substance of a
gesture can be renounced the
next day, if not by yourself, then
hv your successor, whereas ceded
territories cannot be retrieved ex-
cept by war.
You place ultimative precondi-
tions that Israel must accept
right away or else you would not
play. After all. with all due re-
spect. I must say. sir. that you
are not in the position of a victo-
rious general dictating uncondi-
lional surrender terms to a de-
feated foe.
YOU HAVE fought four major
wars against Israel in the.last 30
years. There are no differences of
opinion as to the outcome of the
War of (Israel) Independence, nor
the Sinai Campaign, nor, I be-
lieve, the Six-Day War.
You feel that you were success-
ful in the Yom Kippur War. but
many people would dispute that.
Since when in the history of war-
fare has a supposedly victorious
army pleaded with a defeated foe
to be permitted access to food,
water and medical supplies?
You ask the Jewish community
in the U.S. four questions. I^etus
assume that the answer to all of
ihem is, as you expect, a re-
sounding no, with one proviso
for as long as you remain in pow-
er. Mr. Begin, with the future of
his nation at stake, cannot over-
look the possibility no matter
how remote of a governmental
upset in Egypt. After all. you had
food riots last year, or, for that
matter, as you yourself pointed
out, assassination either by the
rejectionists or by the Madman
Lunatic in Libya; these are, I be-
lieve, your own words.
QUESTION NO. 3 in your
open letter concerns Palestinian
self-determination. Suppose Mr.
Arafat forms an independent
state and proceeds with Syria,
Libya, Iraq, etc. to establish a bi-
national state in what is now Is-
Can you imagine, sir, what
would happen to the Jews there,
recent immigrants and old resi-
dents alike? Mr. Arafat gave us a
good example. Look at Lebanon.
The slaughter which would follow
would pale Hitler's Holocaust to
shame. Is not one Holocaust in a
lifetime enough?
But, better still, suppose Mr.
Arafat or one even more radical
than he, asks his friend Mr.
Brezhnev to lend him a division
of the Russian army to protect
him against Israel "aggression."
Never mind Israel, how would
you like it, and the Saudi Royalty
and King Hussein?
THE KING may have had lit-
tle difficulty in expelling the Pa-
lestinians from Jordan: he would
not find it so easy to send Rus-
sians home.
These observations, sir, are not
a figment of a sick imagination.
These are possibilities which may
become realities tomorrow. But
Mr. Begin cannot overlook these
potential hazards no matter how
far-fetched. Would you, if your
positions were reversed?
Another thing. The Arabs had
full sway over the West Bank and
(Jaza for 18 years after 1948.
Why did they not establish a Pa-
lestinian state?
ANSWER: Transjordan.
After all, Transjordan was
carved out from Palestine, the
majority of its inhabitants are
still, I believe. Palestinians. Sev-
eral of them were premiers of Jor-
dan. Many of them are members
of the royal cabinet, the legisla-
ture, bankers, businessmen.
Let the evacuated sections of
the West Bank and Gaza become
part of Jordan. I am sure you will
find Mr. Begin forthcoming. He
too, along with all Israelis and

MR. PRESIDENT, by your
heroic and unprecedented action,
you put your life in jeopardy, but
you also transformed the Middle
East and introduced a ray of hope
for all the people there.
But it still is not a case of a
warm welcome, instant evacua-
tion of occupied territories, in-
stant self-determination and
peace and brotherly love forever
after. Unfortunately, it is not as
simple as all that, as you well
know. There is still much to talk
about and discuss.
I repeat, you will find Mr. Be-
gin and associates forthcoming.
He will compromise; you will
compromise. But for God's sake,
don't let us miss an opportunity
of a lifetime.

THE JEWISH Telegraphic

assured his visitors that his mis-

to try to split the American Jew-

The Egyptian leader said that
he would not try to create divi-

knew he could not succeed. "I am
not that foolish," the JTA was
told Sadat said.
The JTA was also told that the

Two others who had been in-

of the Egyptian Parliament.
KLUTZNICK, who spoke to

Klutznick said that both the

gypts accepting as a fact some-
Sng which has been a fact for
ost 30 years, namely the exis-
ce of Israel.
MAINLAND China has been
in existence for many years. It
did not need former President
Nixon, or any other world leader
or government, to tell it that it
was "a nation in being." The re-
cognition of Communist China's
existence by our government,
and the recognition of Israel's ex-
istence by Egypt, was done for
America's and Egypt's and all
the world's best interests not
alone for China and for Israel.
If President Sadat or his gen-
erals thought that they, or a
combination of Arab states,
could defeat Israel in battle and
thus eliminate it, would they
have chosen the road to peaceful
But President Sadat did make
an overture for peace and recog-
nition of Israel, and it was a very
important first step. When Golda
Meir was prime minister of Is-
rael, she repeatedly said that she
would go anywhere to meet any
Arab leader in order to discuss
peace. In 1975 the then prime
minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin,
said in addressing a joint session
of the American Congress: "I will
go anywhere to meet the Arab
leaders to talk peace." So the idea
of crossing a border to go "into
the enemy's camp" to talk peace
is not a novel one, nor did it origi-
nate with President Sadat.
WHAT IS novel and what the
Egyptian leader should be com-
mended for is. that unlike his
Arab neighbors, he is apparently
ready to negotiate for a peace
treaty. His going to Jerusalem is
"recognizing" a country that has
existed before the eyes of the
world for 30 years. It's not "ne-
gotiating for a peace treaty." It is
only the first step one which, if
taken when it should have been,
in 1947, would have saved thou-
sands of Arab lives and literally
billions of Arab dollars. By now'
the Arab States, and Egypt espe-
cially, would enjoy a standard of
living not heard of in the Middle
East in modern times.
Since Nov. 20, 1977 Israel
agreed to accept Egypt's sover-
eignty over all of the Sinai which
it captured in the 1967 war and
from which four major military
offenses were launched against it
by Egypt. Additionally, Israel
committed itself to granting self-
rule to the residents of the West
Bank (Judea and Samaria). The
Palestinian Arabs never enjoyed
this under the Turks or the Bri-
tish or the Jordanian Hashemite

Stresses Hope for Peace
Miami to attend a dinner with
Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan.
Stressing that there is still
hope for peace in the Middle East
in spite of a slowdown in nego-

Israel. Moshe Dayan told Amer-
ican Jewish leaders from South
Florida attending a dinner spon-
sored by the National United

Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami
Beach, that progress is still
being made, with the help of the
United States."
Over 40 Palm Beach County
residents, led by Alan L.
Shulman, general campaign
chairman for the 1978 Combined
Jewish Appeal Israel Emer-
gency Fund Campaign, attended
the event.
"IN OUR effort to achieve a
just and lasting peace for all the
peoples of the Middle East, we in
Israel find our most under-
standing and compassionate sup-
porters within the American
Jewish community," Israel's
Foreign Minister said.
"We are more than partners.
We in Israel know that nowhere
else will we find such a profound
relationship with a community
that understands the meaning of
the rebirth of Israel and our
determination to build the Jewish
The dinner was part of a cross-
country tour in which Dayan met
with campaign leaders in
Chicago, Los Angeles, and New
York at a series of meetings
designed to give impetus to the
second half of the 1978 campaign.
"FOUR months ago, Moshe
Dayan came to the United States
to open the campaign," said
general chairman Leonard R.
Streliu. "At that time, he
promised to return to this
country in February to launch
the second phase of our fund-
raising efforts.
"By his presence with us at
this critical juncture, Moshe
Dayan is reaffirming the im-
portance of giving more for the
prospect of peace and for the
opportunity to build and enrich
Jewish life than we do when
Jewish life is threatened."
Condo Campaigns Near Mid Point
The approximate mid-way
point of the Palm Beach County
Jewish Federation's annual fund-
raising drive finds local con-
dominium campaigns proceeding
with vigor and high level results.
Several outstanding amounts
have already been reached in
such areas as The Fountains of
Lake Worth. King's Point, Poin-
ciana Place and Lakeside Village.
CAMPAIGNS are continuing
with more funds expected from
the above listed. Other condos
such as Village Royale on the
Green, Royal Palm Beach
Village. Cresthaven Villas and
Golden Lakes Village are now
picking up momentum and in-
creased giving is predicted.
By and large, the total raised
from Palm Beach County condos
should exceed last year's results
by a considerable margin.
More intensive coverage,
greater awareness of Israel's
situation and the international
situation, stronger cohesiveness
and unity among condo resi-
dents, are all factors responsible
for the increased giving by the
Jewish residents of Palm Beach
MANY part-time residents
from the north are also beginning
to realize their responsibility to
their second home here and have
responded generously.
The coastal hi-rise condos are
also participating in the generally
gratifying expansion of the Fed-
eration's fund-raising program
and by April should produce a
record-breaking total for county-
wide coverage.

little of the out-group in
civilizational integration. Bi-
lingualism in Dade County is the
most obvious example of this.
The recent attempt to force
American-born and bred students
with absolutely no cultural or any
other ties to Spanish-speaking
civilization to learn Spanish as a
second language in the lower
levels of public education,
although it has failed for the
moment, shows just how far we
have gone in succumbing to our
own seduction.
The more insidious side of the
problem is the refusal of school
authorities to impose workable
standards of proficiency in the
English language on all our
students, Spanish-speaking or
not, in the name that it wouldn't
be fair to the disadvantaged!
AND SO the technofreaks,
once victims of an earlier form of
American separatism, observe
their children now becoming
victims themselves victims of
a newer and far more virulent
form of separatism than the
variety that victimized them.
Once again, the schools are the
battleground, where financially
influential Spanish-speaking
elements in the community (read
French for Canada) demand a
new kind of cultural pluralism
that is already yielding a new
kind of illiteracy.
Next stop, political separa-
tism. Like Levesque's Quebec, it

Something for Nothing
Temple Beth Sholom
Lake Worth
Most of us are familiar, I am
sure, with the current sweep-
stakes craze by which, for almost
nothing at all. one can be the
winner of numerous items. Each
year there are more elaborate
"giveaway devices" in commer-
cial advertising.
The desire to get something for
nothing is not confined to the
"junk" one has in his attic or ga-
rage, the commercial sweep-
stakes advertised through maga-
zines or mail, nor the huge gamb-
ling operations, legal or other-
wise, which spread over the
world. It is also found in religion.
ONE of the most important
areas of life is that of friendship.
Some persons think they can get
something for nothing here, but
soon find they have been wrong.
For we are told in a statement.
"By the way we give, will be the
way we receive."
For the person of faith there is
always the bridge of friendship
over which one can cross from
their little island and find the
mainland with its larger circle of
friends who help to take away the
bitter taste of life's hard experi-
It must also be pointed out.

SOMETIMES our friendships
go sour and we do not know why.
or if we do know the reason we
may be so hurt and bitter that we
make no effort to renew them.

Tabernacle and its vessels. The Israelites were warned not
to violate the Sabbath day.
God gave Moses two tablets of stone containing the Ten
Commandments, written "with the finger of God." How-
ever, to the impatient Israelites. Moses seemed to be tar-
rying too long on the mountain. They made a golden calf,
which Moses found them worshipping. In his fury, he
broke the two tablets of the Law. The idolaters were killed
by the members of the loyal tribe of Levi. Moses prayed
successfully to God to spare the children of Israel despite
their backsliding. He ascended Mount Sinai again, and
there received a new set of stone tablets. When he des-
cended. "The skin of Moses' face sent forth beams: and
Moses put the veil back upon his face, until he went in to
speak with Him" (Exodus 34.35).

There are many critics today,
as there always have been, who
find fault with the temple. They
accuse its members of neglect, in-
difference, intolerance, hypocri-
sy, narrowness, bigotry and.
strange as it may seem, of prac-
ticing kindness and courtesy.
BUT WITH all the accusa-
tions, somehow when a crisis
arises it is those same people who
point their finger against the
temple and who refuse to be affi-
liated or support it, who are the
first to call upon the temple for
help when they personally need
To them, temple is useless reli-
gion; meaningless, except when
they need the services of the tem-
ple and the rabbi. Then they want
services, etc.. for nothing, asking
others to pay for the upkeep of
the temple so that its rabbi will
always be available to serve
them. How strange it is when
those who accuse the religious in-
stitution of hypocrisy become
hypocrites in their time of need.
' If G-d has not meant anything
to us it is largely because most of
us have been trying to get some-
thing for nothing namely, an
apprehension or knowledge of G-
d without exercising our faith
and judgment to discover His
reality and power.
TOO OFTEN we have permit-
ted our ideas of G-d to remain on
a primitive level without giving
them a chance to grow or im-
prove. Then, of course, we have
difficulties. Let us remember that
not all dropouts are in the public
and private schools. Many in the
school of life flunk the course
called the growth and develop-
ment of a religious personality.
The temple is not just another
institution: it is the institution in
Jewish life. It always has been.

ife's Turning Points f^Samm^~-j
By Stephen Levitt, A.C.S.W.
Executive Director, Jewish
Family & Children's Service
\U case names mentioned in
hese articles are fictitious; client
^formation at Jewish Family &
Children's Service is held in the
\rictest of confidence.)
No motion picture in my recent
Lemory has attracted thoughtful
udiences as much as Turning
U, starring Shirley McLaine
id Anne Bancroft.
1 experienced this cinematic
Masterpiece at the Century
linerna at the Village recently
nd learned several surprising
about both the picture and
he audience.
icture depicted two aging
allerinas and their difficulties in
Icing "the turning point", i.e.,
lie realization that life moves
quickly and before one
alizes it one is in another stage
[one's existence like it or not.
The quintessential question
Dsed by the film is, "Can I be
ktisfied with what I have
thieved?" I believe the audience
(ovided a clue to their collec-
ve psyche on that point. The
iidience was comprised of 85-90
frcent retirees.
After each cameo ballet per-
Irmance depicted in the movie,
audience burst into applause.
lis was an entirely spontaneous
notion of sheer delight with the
romplishment of the thing.
| HOWEVER, the part which
Reived the most laughter and
pplause was during a vicious
>rht between the two stars, over
matter which had remained
Stephen Levitt
unresolved for 20 years. The
audience heaved a sigh of relief
when these two heroines resolved
their dispute; saw that what had
happened 20 years earlier had
little relevance to today and both
had passed their turning point
the realization that life had in-
deed provided them both with
satisfaction and meaning.
This was what the largely
Jewish audience readily caught; I
came away with the distinct
feeling that the majority of those
in attendance had felt their lives
were both meaningful and satis-
fying, for such a reaction would
hardly have occurred if the
audience had not reached their
turning point, as well.
I sometimes believe that the
therapy offered at J F & CS helps
some of our clients to achieve a
turning point a realization
that, "I can and have made it, by
gosh." I truly believe that each
individual must come to grips
with this issue at some time or
another in order to survive as a
human being; and as I left the
theater I felt as though I had,
somehow, experienced something
both unique and beautiful.
Meeting With Sadat

trued as a surrogate for direct
kyptian Israeli talks."
Klutznick himself said he did
convey an invitation" to the
esidents Conference "on behalf

I There was a report to the effect
ficera in the United States and
anada before accepting."
[ His acceptance is now regarded
some quarters as representing
I division within the American
vish community. The Con-
ence of Presidents of Major
nerican Jewish Organizations
unanimously not to seek a

imunity be interpreted as

lest such a meeting be con-
st Sadat had expressed a wish
| meet with the Presidents Con-
ence leaders and that this wish
I been conveyed to them.
IABBI Joseph P. Sternstein,
sident of the Zionist Or-
nization of America, was
ecially bitter about Klutz-
's meeting with Sadat. In a
egram to the WJC leader,
prnstein wrote: "As members
Ithe American Section of the
kid Jewish Congress, we
ongly deplore your par-
fpation, for it will be inter-
I that you are in fact
sting in your official capacity
"i the WJC.
f We respectfully ask for your
|urance that you will not meet
' i Sadat whether on a personal
or official basis, and that you will
be responsive to the decision
made by the leadership of the
organized Jewish community."
In Jerusalem, Max Fisher,
chairman of the Board of Gover-
nors of the Jewish Agency, in a
press interview, urged American
Jewish leaders to think hard
before agreeing to meet with
Sadat. While he did not advise
against such meeting,, he did
warn that Sadat was calculating
in his own interests, not those of
world Jewry, when he invited
American Jews to meet with him.
IN DISCUSSING the meeting
with Sadat, Klutznick em-
phasized that the WJC had
resolved, first, its backing for
"the security and independence

plete Palestinian Arab control on'
the West Bank, would destroy'
the chance for a lasting peace in
the Middle East. In the long run
such a creation will be contrary to
the best interests of all the coun-
tries in the area Lebanon, Jor-
dan. Saudi Arabia. Iran, Egypt,
Israel even Syria and yes,
to our own United States as well.
It would serve only the interests '
of the Soviets through the PLO.
PRIOR TO President Sadat's
sudden and surprising directive
to his political committee to leave
Jerusalem Jan. 25, five of seven
items under consideration by the
committee and its Israeli coun-
terpart had been agreed upon and
this in only a few sessions of
meetings. Does this seem like
failure" or "too slow a move-
ment toward a peaceful solution"
or "Israeli intransigence"?
What has President Sadat of-
fered? In effect. President Sadat
has said to the people of Israel:
"We. the people of Egypt (not
Jordan, not Syria, not Saudi
Arabia, not Lebanon, not any of
the other so-called "moderate"
Arab states, and surely not the
extremist Arab nations or the
PLO), admit that you exist. In
return for this recognition by us
of your existence, we ask you to
go back to the pre-1967 borders
(which request is not in conformi-
ty with U.N. Resolution 242).
"We ask you to witness the
creation of a new Palestinian
Arab state as a political entity on
the West Bank. We request that
you again permit Syria to take
over all the Golan Heights, and
we expect you to return the Old
City of Jerusalem to Arab con-
trol. For this / guarantee you a
meaningful peace including the
following: Normal commercial
relations, open borders, cultural
exchanges everything (the
same kind of peace that exists,
for example, between the United
States and Canada or between
the United States and Mexico!"
WOULD AN American pres-
ident, senator or congressman
accept that proposition from
President Sadat under the same
circumstances and in the light of
the record of history in the Mid-
dle East in the past 30 years?
Our nation, at least as powerful
a? any in the world, is witnessing
a great debate on a treaty which
concerns itself at least partly
with our security, endangered by |
the limited release of control of a
Canal several thousand miles |
away from our own borders
and this, if it comes about, to
take place more than 20 years
from now!
President Sadat is asking Is-
rael, outnumbered by more than
40 to 1, facing admitted enemies
on three borders, with a sea at its
back on the fourth side, to take
his word that he can insure peace
for Israel. He cannot!
The facts establish the instabi-
lity of Arab regimes in the Mid-
dle East:
Violence is an accepted and
approved means of political
change in the Middle East. Since
1948 murders have claimed the
lives of 19 heads of state and
prime ministers.
Twenty-two times in the past
15 years Arab governments have
broken off or suspended diploma-
tic relations with each other.
There have been 13 inter-
Arab wars and civil wars, the lat-
ter often involving external Arab
Three Arab governments
Iraq, Syria and Sudan, have,
on one or more occasions, com-
mitted acts of mass murder
against their own citizens.
In Lebanon, during the past
two years more Christian and
Moslem Arabs have been killed
by each other than in the four
major wars against Israel.
The secret ballot is an ex-
treme rarity in the Arab coun-
tries and where employed it gives
no multiple choice to the voter.
PRESIDENT Assad of Sy-
ria, King Hussein of Jordan and
President Sadat himself all sit on
shaky seats of power.
In such a climate of instability,
can the world expect Israel to ac-
cept the word of one man that he
can assure a meaningful and last-
ing peace on all fronts and from
all its neighbors? Even while
President Sadat speaks today,
his Arab neighbors meet to con-
demn him and negate his actions
for peace with Israel.
While a way for peace must be
found, it cannot be done through
"electric shock" (President Sa-
dat's own phrase) or "media di-
plomacy" or by "pressures" ap-
plied by any nation on any other
nation. With regard to the latter
(pressures), polls taken in Israel
show that Prime Minister Begin
is much more popular with his
people today than when he was
elected. Much as the Israelis
want and need real peace they
will not succumb to "peace at any
price." The Holocaust made that
clear to all the world and for all
THE WAY to peace is through
patient, serious, quiet diplomacy
not by principals to the pro-
ceedings admittedly engaging in
a public relations campaign
throughout the world. No public
relations or propaganda cam-
paign can change facts.
To President Sadat and Prime
Minister Begin let us urge that
they and their experts seclude
themselves and use all of their
expertise, ingenuity and daring
in the interest of people through
"quiet negotiation," not by me-
dia diplomacy or electric shock
Peace between Israel and its
Middle East neighbors will be
achieved through steps
through periods of trust a
healing of wounds through
acts of reconciliation through
a structure which ensures secur-
ity, for all countries in the area.
Peace will not come overnight. It
will not come by diplomatic spec-
taculars or by public relations
Israelis Bewildered By
Status of Settlements
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israelis were bewildered over the
weekend by a series of contradictory reports on the status of
land development work in the Fatah salient and other parts of
northern Sinai.
Reports that the Defense Ministry had called a halt to
those operations because of the latest crisis with the U.S. on the
Sinai settlements issue were denied by the Defense Ministry.
IT WAS LEARNED, however, that Defense Minister Ezer
Weizman had indeed ordered a cessation of all land develop-
ment work in Sinai two weeks ago, prior to his departure for the
second phase of military talks in Cairo. Weizman acted in
accordance with a Cabinet decision at that time and relayed his
orders through the military government.
But Weizman's, chief aide, Deputy Defense Minister
Mordechai Zippori, was for unknown reasons not aware of those
orders, and the denial apparently was issued on his in-
structions. On the other hand, settlers at Yamit and other sites
in northern Sinai knew of Weizman's instructions.
At a visit to the Tel Aviv University campus. Chip (James Earl III) Carter, son of\
President Jimmy Carter, says that he had thoroughly familiarized himself with Israel's j
background before coming on his trip to Israel. Chip and his wife, Caron, are shown
meeting with Prof. Haim Ben-Shahar, president of Tel Aviv University and touring the
