Former Israeli Prime Minister
lolda Meir Is Dead At Age 80
I Jewish Floridian News Feature
Golda Meir is dead at the age
0. The former Prime Minister
[ Israel, who was once a school
cher in Milwaukee, Wis., died
Friday, Dec. 8, of compil-
ations resulting from circulatory
ents.
Mrs. Meir had been in and out
the hospital for the past few
onths with what her physicians
died lower back problems. Her
ogressively deteriorating con-
lition resulted in a CBS-TV
hport of her death two weeks
Wo. The report was promptly
pnied with apology, but it was
|tn indication of just how serious
|her condition was.
MRS. MEIR'S rise to world
political power ended in her
[premiership of Israel during the
11973 Yom Kippur War surprise
lituck by Egyptian forces that
|caught Israel in flat footed sur-
i and gave rise to many post-

Golda Meir
war investigations into just who
was responsible for the country's
u nprepa redness.
It also gave rise to severe
criticism of Mrs. Meir's "kitchen
cabinet," a reference to her
allegedly elitist method of rule
which involved meetings between
herself and her top aides in her
kitchen at home over tea and
coffee, and which suggested that
she was not operating on a broad
enough base of public and
governmental opinion.
Born in Kiev, Russia, in 1898,
Mrs. Meir and her parents im-
migrated to the United States in
1906 and settled in Milwaukee.
Her father worked as a railway
carpenter. Her mother ran a
small grocery store.
IN HER teens, she was active

jFCS Service for Widowed
The Jewish Family and Chil-
iJns Service recently co-
Innnsored a training workshop
jj^ widowed volunteers in the
I community.
ThP Widowed Persons Service
I project is a joint effort of the JF
liCS the Visiting Nurses Asso-
ciation. I" aim Beach County
Funeral Directors Association,
I Jewish Community Center, and a
Irtrietv ol other social welfare
organizations in Palm Beach
County. An extensive 15-hour
training session was held last
nonth to acquaint these widows
and widowers who were in-
terested in becoming case aides
and volunteers to the needs of the
| more recently widowed.
According to Stephen Levitt,
I executive director JF & CS,
Some of the best help available
lor those who have been recently
bereaved comes from those in-
dividuals who were bereaved at
some time in the past. In addition
to assigning the trained
volunteers to work with the
recently bereaved, the Widowed
Persons Service will conduct
social activities, group dis-
Icussions and informal meetings,"
I Levitt emphasized.
The Widowed Person Service is
tocated at the YWCA. 901 South
Olive Ave. Those who would like
to have a trained widowed case
aide speak to them or who would
like to be trained as case aides
and have been widowed for two
years or longer should call the
Widowed Persons Service.
The service is operating under
a grant from the American Asso-
ciation of Retired Persons and
the North Palm Beach Rotary
Club. In the future, both social
and educational programming
will be offered through the
Widowed Persons Service. Levitt
added, "One of the great needs of
this program is to involve men
who have been widowed as
trained case aides. The recently
bereaved male poses an especially
difficult problem, inasmuch as
society imposes subtle restric-
tions upon the male who exhibits
symptoms of grief and
depression."
Males, especially, are en-
couraged to call or write to the
Widowed Persons Service for
further details. The mailing
address is P.O. Box 2265, West
Palm Beach, Florida 33402.

| u a Fellow to the American Col-

1976.
Shugarman stated, "In serving
the community I understand its
inevitable growth and the social
planning which must accompany
* I also understand that
planning without funding is day-
dreaming. The campaign is the
instrument that converts dreams
mto reality."
Lampert is the president of

November of 1973 immediately
after the Yom Kippur War. Last
year he and Marilyn were mem-
bers of the Palm Beach Countv
Community Mission to Israel.
They were there during the time
that President Sadat of Egypt
was in Israel.
"I view my involvement with
the Federation's '79 campaign as
insurance," stated Lampert.
"The work we do as volunteers is
hopefully insuring the future for
our children, and the monies we
give only serve to reaffirm our
commitment to the survival of
the Jewish people in Palm Beach
County, Israel and around the
world."

made public. It was learned,
however, that Begin would stress
in his letter that although Israel
was not willing to introduce any
changes in the draft peace treaty,
she was willing to negotiate the
wording of letters to be ex-
changed between Jerusalem and
Cairo on the autonomy issue.
Begin was also expected to
reject the time frame contained in
the American compromise
proposal, setting the target date
of December, 1979 for the
completion of elections for the
autonomy. The letter was also
expected to recall the stages of
the peace negotiations, outlining
the many concessions already
made by Israel.
The letter of Begin was ex-
pected to be oolite, but tough
similar to the letter of Sadat.
Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan reportedly described
Sadat's letter as a very difficult
letter." and said that he did not
see anything to negotiate
presently. In his letter, Sadat not
only stuck to his demands of
abolishing Article Six from the
draft treaty (regarding "priority
of obligations") and setting a
target date for the autonomy
negotiations. But he also
mentioned two other demands:
setting a liaison office in Gaza
and an Egyptian local police force
there, as well as setting an exact
timetable for the Israeli with-
drawal from Sinai.
Following the Cabinet meeting
on Sunday, there is little hope in
Jerusalem for an early conclusion
of the negotiations. Sadat's letter
is now seen here as an attempt to
prepare an Egyptian alibi in case
the negotiations break.
At the beginning of the letter,
Sadat reportedly said that fate
has laid it on both himself and
Begin to achieve peace, and this
opportunity should not be
missed. But Israeli observers
noted with concern the fact that
in the substantial part of the
letter there was nothing which
could indicate Egyptian
flexibility.

The First Chanukah Candle
We light the first candle in celebration of
Chanukah on Sunday evening, Dec. 24. The holiday
symbolizes the great Macoabee victory over the
Graeco-Assyrians and the cleansing of the Temple.
We think of Jewish triumphs throughout our history
against a backdrop of ceaseless wandering and the
most acute of all obscenities in our experience, the
Holocaust.
This year, Chanukah is no different. Saddened
by the death of one of modern Israel's most
distinguished leaders, Golda Meir, we light the first
candle remembering the excitement of the so Anwar Sadat-"peace initiative" last Chanukah when
hopes were sent soaring for a Mideast accord, which
seemed but around the corner.
The candle flickers before us, the memory of
Mrs. Meir's stilled voice echoes in our spirit, and the
soaring hopes of Chanukah yesteryear appear not yet
to be fulfilled. This is the bitter sweet of all our
Jewish history and the bitter sweet of all our
Chanukahs as joy mingles with disappointment and
occasionally even despair.
But Chanukah is a festival symbolizing
rededication and renewal of ancient Jewish principles
and ideals. And so, in the glow of the menorah and
the first candle, we renew our hopes for joy for
peace. We offer them in the spirit of the blessing,
ba'yamim hohem lazman hazeh, in the spirit of our
trust in the miracle of the Jewish continuum as in the
days of old unto our own time.
Whither Peace Euphoria
In the wave of peace euphoria sweeping the
American Jewish community, there has been a
decided reluctance to come to grips with the
possibility that the fabled Sadat peace initiative has
been turned into something like a Frankenstein
monster by the design of Sadat, himself, encouraged
by his negotiating partner, not Israel, but the United
States.
It grows increasingly clear that what Sadat wants
is not peace, but a piece of Israel. Sadat wants a
piece for himself, and the growing strength of his
linkage demands indicates that he wants to assure
other pieces for his fellow-Arab rulers as well.
This is not a popular observation to make, par-
ticularly since the euphoria ebbs away only slowly
and with great reluctance. But Sadat's most recent
demand that Israel accede Lo a rewrite of Article VI
so that his treaty with Israel should be subordinated
to subsequent treaties he might make with other
Arab countries tells those of us who have been
suspicious all along that we were right in our guarded
optimism.
A Web of Words
Now comes Prof. Yoram Dienstein, Dean of the
Tel Aviv University School of Law, who in an article
published in Ha'aretz, calls the whole Draft Treaty
an amateurish job that he would barely have passed
if written by one of his students in international law.
There is no wonder, he says, the treaty is loaded
in iavor of Egypt. After all, confesses Prof. Dienstein
in a startling expose, one of the American legal
experts Israel consulted was a lawyer named
McDougle, "who never concealed the fact that he has
long been an adviser to Arab oil interests."
What happens to American Jewry's euphoria is
really only a minor issue. More vital is what happens
to Israel now that she has boxed herself in by words
at which the fabled People of the Book ought to have
>een far more adept from the beginning.

is
THE ARAB argument that
"Palestine" is occupied certainly
sounds very legal. America,
nothing if not a sucker for the
legal, except where its own
immediate interests may be con-
cerned, swallows the Arab
argument hook, line and sinker.
But the Arab argument is
essentially Jordanian, a nation
only 27 years older than Israel
herself, a nation proposed by that
great self-appointed Zionist, Sir
Winston Churchill, who foresaw
the end of the British Mandate in
a Zionist hegemony, and who
wanted to assure a Palestine
divided more complicatedly than
simply between one Arab and one-
Jewish entity once events in the
Middle East would force the
British presence to come to an
end there.
AND SO it is a matter of

mm*:
history that what America ac-
cepts as Levantine legalese is in
fact the child of Churchill now
grown into Jordanian legalese.
not historical geopolitical reality.
Consequently, when the
British Mandate ended in 1948
precisely as Churchill foresaw it
with still another partition
that divided yet another time the
apo\0Q OTA
remaining half of Palestine be-
tween Araby and a new Jewish
state Jordan rejected the
second partition after its own
creation and moved in conjunc-
tion with six fellow-Arab nations
to invade and destroy the second
partition and the new Jewish
political entity with it.
His grandfather. King
Abdullah, earlier welcoming the
concept of a Jewish State as a
positive Levantine force, was
murdered for his sentiments.
IT IS this monarch, it is this
invasion which President Carter
these days sanctifies as symbolic
of Arab "legal'* and "historic"
rights in the area which, he has
been led to believe, are now
expropriated by Israeli "oc-
cupation" and which must be
"restored."
THAT THE Arab invasion of
Israel in 1948 was itself illegal
hardly seems to bother him and
other world leaders. That the
1948 invasion added British
Mandate lands to Jordan in the
form of open annexation of the
West Bank and East Jerusalem
does not dissuade him from
further identifying this booty as
"Jordanian" or "Palestinian,"
which it became by acclaim at the
hideous Khartoum conference
after the 1973 war.
The Arab lie is acceptable; the
Israeli claims, initiated by UN
fiat and enlarged by Arab at-
tempts to destroy her with
British urging and support that
failed in 1948, are "illegal," signs
of "occupation" and unac-
ceptable.
The double code of behavior
here reduces itself to Jew vs. non-
Jew. In a world increasingly
dominated again by New Testa-
ment anti-Semitism and, for the
first time, Koran revulsion for
Judeo-Christian infidels
generally, the winner is apparent.
The Christian, by number, power
and habit, can easily deal with
the Koran.

The Stalemate in Rhodesia
Some 27 U.S. Senators,
primarily of strong conservative
persuasion, have brought
Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian
Smith and two black allies to
Washington, giving the trio
exposure to American law-
makers, the media, and the
public.
The stakes are tremen-
dous. With Rhodesian whites,
comprising only 4 percent of the
vast nation's population, slowly
moving out, with economic
sanctions strangling the troubled
country, and with Russia and
Cuba itching to push the Smith
regime into final collapse,
Rhodesia must achieve genuine
racial parity and rear a truly
democratic government or face
bitter civil war.
NOBODY KNOWS this better
than Joshua Nkomo and Robert
Mugabe, the black guerrilla
leaders, who will either achieve
5 percent control of the entire
government or else accept the
blandishments of Moscow.
And nobody should know it
better than Ian Smith, whose
boast that never in a thousand
years would he yield to all the
demands of Rhodesia's blacks
has helped mightily to push him
to the wall.
Back a quarter of a century
ago, when Smith was a political
lieutenant of Prime Minister Roy
Welensky, he should have given
better heed to that astute leader.
Welensky, who was the son of a
Lithuanian Jew one who went
in 1887 from America to try to
build a fortune once said of Ian
Smith: "He's shown a great
power of resistance to change. I
can't see Mr. Smith making
changes that will produce a
solution. We're headed for
confrontation; and most people
don't seem to realize how terrible
it can be unless some settlement
can emerge. We should move on
to a mixed government, and then
the government should be pre-
dominantly black."
WHEN HE SAID this,
Welensky had the weight of
statistics with him, for 96 percent
of Rhodesia's population is black.
And those proud Africans, keenly
conscious of intensified decolon-
ization, will not abide the Smith
rule, the Smith intransigence, the
Smith refusal to grant the great
black majority a proper share of
leadership in the legislative,
judicial, and economic life of
Rhodesia. (Currently average
black earnings there are $830
annually; average white earnings
are $8,249. Literacy holds for 26
percent of the people; but
determination to taste all the
fruits of freedom and democracy
scores 100 percent among the
long-suffering blacks.)
Britain, which looks aghast at
the pro-Smith move led by
Senators S.I. Hayakawa of
California and Jesse A. Helms of
North Carolina, has for years
acknowledged that the dream of
Cecil Rhodes had changed to
nightmare. Rhodes, who knew
how to acquire millions from gold
and diamonds, also knew how to
saddle apartheid, the rankest
kind of discrimination, on a
nation while sugarcoating it with
lovely promises of a paradisiacal
future for blacks. He had his own
way of "extending British civil-
ization into darkest Africa."
SO BEGINNING in 1971,
when the blacks resolved to
throw off Smith's tight hold and
formed the African National
Council, England sought
vigorously for a solution. A
change came in 1976 when
British Foreign Secretary James
Callahan brought forward a plan
calling for acceptance of the
principle of majority rule,
elections in one and a half to two
years, independence only after
majority rule was established,
and no long, drawn-out
negotiations.
This proved a prescription too
demanding for the Smith regime;
but when State Secretary Henry
Kissinger retooled it, Smith
changed his mind and agreed to
black majority rule within two
years.
The two years have gone by.
Henry Kissinger, still trying to
shore up Smith, gave him fresh
support during the Rhodesian
leader's recent Washington visit.
BUT PRESIDENT Carter,
declaring he knew of no U>
agreement with Smith, "tated
was not familiar with tne
Kissinger-Smith pact wo
continued to call for a new. sow
plan for transition to majority
rule.
In retrospect, Roy Welensky
seems to have been quite
prophet when he said:
see Mr. Smith making change*
that will produce a solution.
That's a judgment that haunt*
Rhodesia to this day.

Dissenter s Opinion
Accord Dissatisfaction Seen Growing
By RAY SAIDEL
Special to
The Jewish Floridian
JERUSALEM
Dissatisfaction with Carter's
Camp David treaty is spreading
into all areas of Israeli political
life left, right and center are
rethinking the issues.
The treaty lost many sup-
porters when Carter pressed for
items that were not originally
under serious consideration,
items Sadat alone would never
dare demand. But Sadat found
himself in a strange position. He
couldn't be less pro-Arab than
the US. President, so he "upped
the ante."
IT'S OBVIOUS now to any
but the most obtuse observer
that the peace talks delay is due
w Washington; the snowballing
increase in Israeli discomfort
with The Treaty" is due to
Carter and State Department
declarations. They make it
crvstal clear. Washington has
moved into the Arab camp.
In fact, Carter and "State" feel
secure enough to move all the
way to an "extreme" pro-Arab
position. Israelis are waking to

EDITOR. The Jewish Floridian:
1 think what I am about to
write has to be said. Your paper
is the logical publication for my
letter. I am talking about a book
called Rachel, the Rabbi's Wife.
Having read it, I am outraged at
the fact that a book of this nature
should go undenounced in Palm
Beach County. This book was
written by the wife of a rabbi.
The character of the book is
Rachel, the wife of the rabbi. Her
complaint is that the congrega-
tion is smug, middle-class, tradi-
tionalist and not permissive in
relation to the current shibbo-
leths of our time. There is some
validity to some of her criticism,
but she is the last one who should
make these charges.
Her conduct is one replete with
pornography (the worst), the
jewing of four-letter words, the
flaunting of her drinking habits
"i corner saloons and extra-
marital sexual relations. Her
husband, the Rabbi, is not above
his own shtick re. the above-men-
tioned facts. This book is not
0ly an indictment of other
rabbn and the rabbinate in gen-
WJi but also of the congregation.
'.here is also a chapter of a rabbi-
nical convention in which there is
general feeling of cynicism on
.Part of the rabbis. I think this
wok should be denounced by our
raobis in no uncertain terms.

the fact that they are not nego-
tiating with an enemy Egypt and
a neutral U.S.A., but with Egypt
and Egypt's ally.
The Saunders episode in
Jordan and the "West Bank,"
the U.S. backing out on
numerous financial and political*
commitments, the tone of
Carter's comments make it clear
even to the most doveish Israelis;
they made a big mistake nego-
tiating in the U.S.A. They would
have been better off negotiating
in Cairo.
ONE OF the strongest sup-
porters of Prime Minister Begins
peace policy was the chairman of
the Likud Knesset faction,
Avraham Sharir (Liberal Party).
Recently interviewed by the
Jerusalem Post's Mark Segal, he
lashed out at the treaty and
Washington.
"So what are they gaining by
this pressure? Do they want
Begin to fall? Do they think any
government other than one
headed by Begin would be able t
deliver peace? With all due
respect, it now would seem that
the Camp David talks were not as
successful as they appeared."
Moshe Kol, a leader ot the
Independent Liberal Party and a
Cabinet -minister in the previous
Labor government, is upset by
the proposed autonomy in Judea,
Samaria and Gaza.
KOL SAID last week that "the
time has come to inform the
government (Israeli) that this
autonomy, which is bounded in
its territorial application by the
1967 (1948) borders, is likely to
prove a catastrophe. It may, in
fact, contain the seeds of a new
war."
At the Herut Central Com-
mittee debate last month, Begin
was attacked for his policies by
his former Number 2, Yohanan
Bader, and the widow of one of
his long-time associates, Ayre
Ben-Eliezer.
When I talked to Shmuel Katz
in Tel Aviv in mid-November, the
noted Israeli political analyst
made a point often neglected in
the west; the refugees who
supposedly would return to the
new "autonomous" Palestinian
State in Judea, Samaria and
Gaza, did not come from that
area and do not want that area;
they came from Haifa, Jaffa,
Acre and Lod all in Israel.
HE ASKED, "What connec-
tion can there be in the establish-
ment of a Palestinian State in
Pag>5
Judea, Samaria and Gaza and a
return of the refugees to their
homes that no longer exist in
Israel proper?"
The answer is obvious. The
peace treaty and the autonomous
Palestinian State are but
stepping stones to a "final
solution" elimination, by the
Arabs, of a Jewish State in their
midst.
With Israel out of Sinai, out of
Judea, Samaria, Gaza and East
Jerusalem, she not only will be
vulnerable to attack the temp-
tation to take this sitting duck
will be irresistible.
State Dep't. 'Explains'Israel's
Military Shipment to Nicaragua
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The State Department said that
Israel's "last shipment" of
military materiel to the Somoza
government "under a set of
contracts for light military
equipment was made in August."
The Department's chief
spokesman, Hodding Carter, was
asked for the second time in a
week about Israeli military
assistance to Nicaragua's
government. Previously he
reported that Israel had denied
making shipments "clan-
destinely" to Nicaragua.
REGARDING the contractual
shipments. Carter said that "we
have been told" by the Israel
government that no shipments
have been made since August
and that the materiel supplied
under the contracts consisted of
light weapons and uniforms.
Asked whether the cessation of
Israeli military shipments to
Nicaragua includes both private
and government sales. Carter
replied, "I think the answer is
yes."

The Women's Division of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County held an Education Day
Program at Camp Shalom. The program was geared to sensitize the women to the economic
problems faced by the average Israeli housewife. The program began with the women being
transported on buses, when they were given the profiles of Israeli women and asked to assume
that identity for the remainder of the program.

On the issue of economic aid to
Israel, Prittie noted that "a peace
treaty with Egypt will not di-
minish their need for economic
aid." The Sinai has been the
major training area for the Israeli
military forces. Withdrawal from
that area will necessitate the
Israelis having to dismantle their
bases and set up training areas in
the Negev and over the Mediter-
ranean. "This will not only in-
crease the risk but the cost as
well. Peace negotiations do not
solve all the problems. Israel's
survival is still at stake."
Prittie suggested that if an
agreement with Egypt is reached,
Jordan's King Hussein will go for
a Camp David II. He cited the
attempts on Hussein's life as the
reason that he has been reluctant
to "stick his neck out."
Prittie became involved with
Israel after World War II when
as a correspondent for the
Manchester Guardian, stationed
in Germany, he became in-
terested in the displaced persons
camps. As a result he came in
contact with many Jews at-
tempting to reach Palestine.
Prittie's most recent book, The
Economic War Against the Jews,
was published by Random House
in 1977. He made 18 trips to
Israel to research his material.

Common Questions
On Day Schools
Urge Abolition of Limit on Trials
According to figures just
released on Jewish student popu-
lation in the United States, some
23 percent of all Jewish children
attending Jewish schools attend
day schools. Almost 100,000 of
400,000 students currently
enrolled are in these schools. In
the greater Palm Beach area the
percentage is about the same. It
seems therefore appropriate to
answer some of those questions
that we hear most frequently
with respect to the Day School.
Question: Doesn't the Day
School isolate children from their
"normar' neighborhood friends?
Answer: Children attending
the Day School are no more iso-
lated from their friends than if
they attended any other type of
specialized schooling. Particu-
larly in a community such as
ours, where children, in any given
area attend a variety of public
and private schools, this is not
the case. One parent, with whom
I discussed this matter, pointed
out that of the children on her
immediate block, two are attend-
ing public schools, six attended a
total of four different private
schools. The meeting place be-
came the street and the neigh-
borhood. "In fact," she pointed
out, "my children are free on
Sundays and after school and
therefore have greater oppor-
tunity to meet and interact with
children than their friends who
attend religious schools."
Question: How can a student
in a Day School accomplish in
half a day what other schools
spend a full day in studying?
Answer: The Day School is
structured so that students
spend a total of more than four
hours in core subjects, math,
science, language arts, social
studies, and the speciality
subjects, art, music, physical
education. This is almost equal to
the amount of time given these
subjects in the public schools.
Students Plan
Anshei Sholom
Service
As part of its continuing pro-
gram of community service, the
students of the Jewish Com-
munity Day School will conduct
the Kabbalat Shabbat Services
this evening at Congregation
Anshei Sholom in Century
Village. This is the third year
that the Day School students will
conduct the service, providing an
opportunity for the congregants
to enjoy the "Oneg Shabbat" of
hearing the children conduct the
service. In addition to the ser-
vice, the evening will include a
program of other Hebrew songs.
The Day School children have
participated in similar events
during recent weeks. On Friday
evening, Dec. 1, they conducted
the Shabbat services at the
Golden Lakes Temple. On
Tuesday, Dec. 5, the students
presented a program of Jewish
music and dance at the Yiddish
Culture Group at Century
Village.
Children of all the various
grades of the school have par-
ticipated in these programs,
which have been prepared under
the direction of Rabbi Arnold
Richter. Lee Jacobson, school
administrator, coordinated the
program.
The Jewish Community Day
School is a constituent agency of
the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County.
The major difference is class size.
The Day School classes average
less than 15 students plus per-
mitting a great deal of indivi-
dual ization.
Question: Do Day School
graduates fare well in public high
schools and colleges ?
Answer: The record speaks for
itself. Graduates of elementary
Jewish Day Schools have an en-
viable record in secondary
schools. Day School graduates
attend every major prestige uni-
versity and have probably the
highest percentage of attendance
at graduate schools of any type of
schools in the United States and
in Canada.
Question: Why should com-
munity dollars be used to support
what is, after all, private school
education?
Answer: The Jewish Day
School has proven to be the most
effective form of Jewish educa-
tion available. The graduates of
the Jewish Day School move-
ment form a reservoir that pro-
vides professional, Rabbinic and
informed lay leadership for the
entire community. As such, it
must be supported by the entire
Jewish community.
The parent who sends a child
to a Jewish Day School is doing
so in addition to his obligations
for public school support, congre-
gational membership and sup-
port of Federation and other
charities.
Additionally, every Day
School in the U.S. (including our
own) has students who can only
attend through the help of tuition
assistance and scholarship aid.
By F. SACHSER
London Chronicle Syndicate
BONN In a petition to the
German Federal Parliament in
Bonn, numerous West German
democratic organizations, in-
cluding the Coordinating Council
of Associations for Christian -
Jewish Cooperation, the perma-
nent Christian Jewish Commis-
sion of the German Evangelical
Church, and groups of Nazi
victims, have asked for the
abolition of the Statute of Limi-
tation to ensure the future pros-
ecution of Nazi criminals.
Members of the Social Dem-
ocratic faction in the Federal
Parliament have disclosed plans
to introduce a Bill demanding the
abolition of the Statute for
murder. Several members of the
Free Democratic faction, as well
as of the Christian Democratic
Opposition Party, have already
announced their support of the
move. But other groups of both
the Government and Opposition
parties have already made it clear
that they would vote against the
abolition of the Statute.
POLITICAL observers are not
sure whether those supporting
the abolition will ever find a
Parliamentary majority. Among
those who are against the
opening of new proceedings
against Nazi criminals after 1979
are the chairman of the Christian
Democratic Union, Helmut Kohl,
as well as the head of the Free
Democratic Party, Foreign
Minister Hans-Dietrich Gen-
scher.
West German Chancellor Hel-
mut Schmidt, addressing foreign
press correspondents, said with
respect to the prosecution of Nazi
crimes that over a year remained
to clarify the problem of
Limitation in Parliament. One
should not ignore the fact that
full prosecution would also be
possible after 1979 in all known
cases of Nazi crimes where in-
vestigations had been initiated
by that date, he said.
Thus, a Nazi criminal whose
crime would come to light next
year, and against whom legal
action was then initiated, could
be prosecuted until the year 2009
before the Statute would become
effective in his case.
THE CHANCELLOR ap-
pealed to all foreign states
holding documents on Nazi
crimes to provide all the material
they have to the West German
legal authorities. Schmidt also
said that he was strictly against a
new denazification wave in this
country.
In connection with recent
criticism concerning the former
Nazi Party membership of Presi-
dent Scheel, and the president of
the Federal Parliament, Karl
Carstens, the Chancellor said he
could see nothing incriminau,
in this fact. He pointed out th
even the Western powers
never condemned the
nominal membership of the N
Party.
In Israel, the Knesset hasl_
discussing this issue, and is lik^J
to have a full debate shortly!
During preliminary discussions]
Justice Minister Shmuel Ta
declared that "Limitation"
Genocide" are mutually ezpra
sive terms. The Knesset is e
deavoring to persuade the W
German Government to
the Statute, writes the Jew^
Chronicle Jerusalem cor
pondent, Yoram Kessel.
-Naftali Feder, of Mapa.
pointed out that it was estimate
that between 150,000 and 200,0
Nazi criminals had been dir _
responsible for the deaths of lj
million people, among them sii
million Jews. But since the i
of the war, only some 35,0001
been prosecuted.

, This nursery was estab-

At the end of these visits,
Dorothy Fleegler summed up her
impressions, "This Schacht
Nursery is to my mind the most
efficient and beautiful that I have
ever seen, in Israel, or, indeed, in
the United States. This is partly
due to the architecture, which is
so beautifully planned to provide
each class with its own outdoor
garden, and this in turn is
planned to suit the needs of each
age group.
"It is sometimes argued that a
good physical environment is not
essential to bring up a child
successfully. I don't accept this
easy doctrine. It cannot be
denied, in my opinion, that the
more beautiful and functional the
environment, the easier it is to
train and develop the child. The
architects of the Schacht Nur-
sery, using hexagonal shapes for
their outer shell, as well as the
classrooms and gardens,
provided a very imaginative,
attractive building. Then Hadas-
sah and Na'amat, which provides
the teachers, evolved a program
that develops the child in the best

"The children are looked after
all day, and are given well-
balanced meals. It is not always
easy to cope with children from
three months to four years of age,
but the excellent staff is
managing to do so. The working
mothers in Hadassah can attend
to their nursing and other duties
without any worry about how
their children are being handled."
Mrs. Fleegler then went on to
evaluate child care generally in
Israel.
"Not all institutions have such
impressive physical facilities as
the Schacht Nursery at
Hadassah," she said, "but I am
very impressed by the diversity
of types of infant care that I have
seen. These are tailored to suit
the needs of the people using
them. Another remarkable aspect
of child care in Israel is the har-
monious cooperation between
private institutions concerned
with the child and the Ministry of
Education. This cooperation is
put into effect with a surprising
lack of red tape. The child is
obviously considered to be more
important than the regulations."

At the Hadassah-Hebrew University Medical Center in
Jerusalem, Dorothy Fleegler, of Boca Raton, a leading
American expert on education and a member of the Presidential
Council of 15 private citizens which reports to Jimmy Carter

Golda Meir Is Dead at Age of 80
Continued from Page 1
Labor Zionist Poalei 'Lion. She
later taught in Yiddish folk
schools. In 1917, she was
married.
In 1921, Mrs. Meir immigrated
to Israel with her husband,
settling in the Kibbutz Merhavia
in the malaria infested Jezreel
Valley, where the couple special-
ized in poultry breeding. Three
years later, they settled in
Jerusalem.
Mrs. Meir became the mother
of a son and a daughter and was a
grandmother of five at the time of
her death. Her daughter became
a member of Kibbutz Revivim, a
pioneer village in the Negev
desert. Her son is a professional
cellist.
In 1928, Mrs. Meir became sec-
retary of the Women's Labor
Council, founding member of
Mapai, the Israeli Labor Party,
and later joined Histadrut, where
she became a member of its
Executive Committee.
WITH THE end of World War
II and the growing pressure at
the United Nations Organization
for the partition of then-Palestine
and the establishment of a new
Jewish nation, in 1946 Mrs. Men-
was named acting head of the
Jewish Agency's Political De-
partment in Jerusalem.
On May 10,1948, dressed as an
Arab woman, she traveled
secretly to Amman to attempt to
persuade King Abdullah of
Transjordan not to join in the
Arab invasion of Israel which
occurred within 24 hours after the
UN partition.
Four days later, she became a
signatory to Israel's Declaration
of Independence. During the next
year, she served as Israel's first
Ambassador to Moscow, and in
1949, she was elected to Israel's
First Knesset.
SHE WAS appointed Minister
of Labor and was particularly
preoccupied in the following
years with providing employ-
ment and housing for the great
Jewish refugee immigration of
the early 1950s.
In 1956, she was appointed
Foreign Minister, and in 1965,
she retired from all government
activity.
However, one year later, with
the sudden death of Premier Levi
Eshkol, she was named secretary
general of Mapai. With the
merger of the major labor fac-
tions to form the united Israel
Labor Party, she became its sec-
retary general until 1968.
One year later, she was
nominated and accepted the
premiership of Israel.
MRS. MEIR'S death comes at
a time when Israel is again locked
in a life and death struggle to
achieve peace in the Middle East.
Even in death, her voice still
speaks words pertinent to that
struggle. In an address to the
Knesset on March 17, 1969, she
declared:
"The secret of Israel's en-
durance in the struggles and wars
that have been forced upon us
since we achieved our indepen-
dence is the inexorable tie be-
tween survival and sovereignty,
and our consciousness of this tie
for the survival of the Arab
states does not depend on the
liquidation of our independence
or the destruction of Israel: while
our very lives and survival of
each of us and of all of us
together depend on the
strength of our State."
In the wake of the 1956 Suez-
Sinai war, she told the General
Assembly of the United Nations:
"WE ARE a small people in a
small barren land which we
revived with our labor and our
love. The odds against us are
heavy; the disparity of forces is
great, but we have no alternative
but to defend our lives and
freedom and right to security. We
desire nothing more than peace,
but we can not equate peace
merely with an apathetic
readiness to be destroyed.
"If hostile forces gather for our
proposed destruction, they must
not demand that we provide them
with ideal conditions for the
realization of their plans.''

NEW YORK As part of its
40th anniversary of service to the
Jewish people, the United Jewish
Appeal will sponsor an essay
contest for high school students
in the United States and Israel, it
was announced by Irwin S. Field,
the UJA national chairman. The
topic for the contest is "UJA
Forty Years of Jewish Lifeline."
In order to emphasize that this
contest is a learning experience,
and to minimize the competitive
nature, UJA will recognize the
participation of all entrants by
granting them an official cer-
tificate of achievement. There
will, moreover, be no ranking of
prizes in the United States: the
authors of the 10 best essays will
each be given a round trip to
Israel, to enable them to examine
at first-hand the subjects ex-
plored in their essays. While
there, they will have a one-day
guided tour by the United Jewish
Appeal.
THE ISRAELI first prize
winner will receive a three-year
university tuition scholarship;
WMnMSEL
Knew Emigres Were Criminals
ALBANY, N.Y. (JTA) -
The names of at least three
alleged Latvian Nazi war
criminals now living in the
United States were known to
immigration authorities before
the men entered this country,
Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal
charged here.
In a taping for 'Heritage and
Destiny," a television program
produced by the Anti-Defa-
mation League of B'nai B'rith
and the local Jewish Federation
on the Albany ABC affiliate.
Wiesenthal said that the names
of Vilis Hazners, Karlis Detlavs
and Edgars Laipenieks were on a
list of 50 criminals* from the
Baltic countries that he pub-
lished in 1949.
"WE WERE searching in
some displaced persons camps in
Germany, because these people in
1944 escaped with the Germans,"
he said. "I sent this list to an
American newspaper, and they
sent it to the immigration
authorities."
Hazners, 73, now lives in the
Washington County town of
Dresden, N.Y., 60 miles north-
east of Albany. He is charged by
the U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization Service (INS)
with having entered the country
illegally in 1956 from Hamburg,
Germany, by failing to disclose
his participation as a senior
military official in Nazi-spon-
sored war crimes in the vicinity of
Riga. It has been established that
he was employed by the CIA-
funded Radio Free Europe and
Radio Liberty.
Detlavs, 67, of Baltimore, Md.,
entered the U.S. in 1950 and is
also charged with failure to dis-
close his participation in Nazi
war crimes.
HE ALLEGEDLY served as a
guard in Salaspils death camp,
and took part in shooting and
selection of Jews in Riga. Both
Hazners and Detlavs are in the
midst of court procedures,
represented by the same at-
Irving Engel, Former
AJComm. Prexy, Dead
torney, Ivars Berzins. The
Hazners case has been inactive
since spring.
The INS has not yet brought
formal charges against
Laipenieks, the third Latvian
that Wiesenthal named. Now
residing in San Diego, Calif.,
Laipenieks, 65, allegedly killed
Jews in the central prison in
Riga.
According to a journalist and
Nazi war criminal expert, Charles
R. Allen, Jr., the CIA,
Laipenieks' employer for more
than 14 years, has intervened on
his behalf.
"THE GUILT of the Nazi
helpers in the occupied ter-
ritories, especially the Eastern
countries, is, in my opinion,
greater than the guilt of the
(German) Nazis," Wiesenthal
said.
"They were perfect criminals;
they were voluntary. They were
living in the same places as the
victims, going to the same
schools, knew each other. Some-
times they had common busi-
nesses, and in the end they had a
profit from the profiteers.
"During the Cold War in the
1950s," he continued, "these
people entered the U.S. and now
they are here. For me, there is not
any doubt that these people are
guilty."
the second prize winner, a two-
year tuition scholarship; and the
third prize winner will receive a
one-year tuition scholarship.
Those wishing to participate
may obtain entry forms unttf
Feb. 15 from their local Jewish
Federations and Boards of
Jewish Education or from the
National UJA office, 1290
Avenue of the Americas, New
York, N.Y. 10019. The winners
will be announced on May 2,
1979, simultaneously in
Jerusalem and New York. May
2nd is Israel's Independence
Day.
"We hope that students will
avail themselves of materials
pertaining to Jewish survival
after the Holocaust, the set-
tlement of displaced persons, the
rebirth of Israel, and the
upgrading and renewal of the
quality of Jewish life, in all of
which the UJA has played a key
role," said Field.
The contest will be supervised
by an advisory committee of
leading American Jewish
educators. Dr. Alvin I. Schiff,
chairman of its steering com-
mittee, said: "We hope that
many young people will take
the opportunity to familiarize
themselves with this vital period
of Jewish history and forge a new
link with the Jewish heritage of
humanitarianism. which has been
exemplified by UJA in its out-
standing record of achievement
over 40 years."

who is executive vice president of
the Board of Jewish Education of

What is further clear is that
official Arab attempts to estab-
lish a political presence in what
today are called the "occupied"
territories always zeroed in on
Ham la as the distant Arab pro-
vincial capital, not Jerusalem.
It is true that, with the excep-
tion of the brief period of oc-
cupancy by the Christian
crusaders, Jerusalem was under
Moslem rule from the days of the
Persian-Turkish Abbasid junta
until 1918 a period of Cme
1,300 years.
THIS DATE coincides with
the collapse of the Ottoman
Empire and the establishment of
the British Mandate after World
War I. But this is a geopolitical
reality having nothing to do with
Arab spiritual interest in the city.
Arab spiritual interest is
rooted in Mecca and Medina,
where Mohammed lived and
where his work led to the
founding of Islam. Despite the
presence of the Dome of the Rock
and the Mosque of Al Aksa, both
in East Jerusalem, Arabs i-ntil
today have had no genuine
spiritual interest in that city. It is
toward Mecca and Medina that
they turn in their prayers, much
as Jews historically turned east-
ward, toward Jerusalem,
throughout their own exile.

What they resent is a Jewish
nation as anathema to the
teachings of the Koran in the
same way that thev resent
Christendom. Quite simply, they
resent the existence of Israel. The
Jewish presence in Jerusalem,
incidentally a majority presence
since the end of the nineteenth
century, is merely a secondary
consideration.
THE PARALLEL to Chris-
tianity makes this clear.
Christian anti-Semitism is rooted
in the notion that Jews must
remain reviled and in exile until
their redemption through the
acceptance of Jesus as Messiah.
The reestablishment of Israel in
our time not only sets the lie to
this dogma; it shakes the ground
of the ideological structure essen-
tial to Christian belief.
Christian relations with Jews
are geared to a successful ac-
ceptance of their dogma, and
they have done everything
possible throughout the ages to
assure the fact that Jews will be
reviled and remain in exile. It is
clear that their attitude toward
Judaism and Israel must remain
consistent with this policy.
If we want to go back to begin-
nings and just who is occupying
whom in Jerusalem, the fact is
that the Dome of the Rock and Al
Aksa are built on the ancient
Jewish Temple Mount, which
precedes both off-shoot
Christianity and Islam by at
least half a millennium. It is they
who are the squatters.
THAT THE Temple Mount is
holy to each of these off-shoots
surely demonstrates the poverty-
stricken visions of each of these
orphan spiritual systems, which
cannot fend for themselves
unrelated to Jewish spiritual and
geopolitical history, let alone
holy writ.
It is precisely in this that we
can recognize the genocidal
decreed destruction of all Jewish
facilities and grave sites in East
Jerusalem during his occupation,
give substance in the muddled
Christian mind to this belief, so
confused are Christians by their
own bigoted view of the claims of
Christianity.
From a political viewpoint
today, chief in the ranks of the
muddled is Jimmy Carter. It is
not a fear but a distinct
possibility that Jerusalem may
yet be torn from the Jewish grasp
once again. It is Carter who will
largely be at fault if it is. for it is
Carter who is pandering to the
newest anti-Semitism.
THE
VISION of a Baptist
mania in each toward Jewish Sunday School teacher is no
mystical realpolitik. But the clearer than, say, that of a Jim
Jewish presence in Jerusalem and Bishop, whose main claim to
prior claims to Jerusalem go back fame is that he made a load doing

U.S. 'Opposes'UN Palestine Day
lATTfNTIONi
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The United States described "In-
ternational Day of Solidarity
with the Palestinian People" as
"confrontational, one-sided and
not helpful in the quest for a just
regional settlement of the Arab-
Israel conflict.'' The celebration
was Nov. 29.
"We oppose and will not
participate in this day," the State
Department's chief spokesman,
Hodding Carter, said. He pointed
out that planning for this day "is
the responsibility of the United
Nations Secretariate special unit
for Palestinian rights." The U.S.
opposed the establishment of the
unit, the committee, Solidarity
Day and all preparations for that
day. Carter said.
HE GAVE the Administra-
tion's views at a news briefing
after questions had again been
raised by a reporter as to when
the U.S. would speak out against
the program and also about the
Administration's continued
silence regarding the written
protests by 28 Senators against
the U.S. payment of $190,000 of
the $500,000 the United Nations
is spending for what is in effect a
glorification of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
Carter said that the Congress,
by amendment to the State
Department's authorization bill,
had requested President Carter
to instruct Andrew Young,
United States Ambassador to the
UN, to oppose the continuation
of both the UN special unit and
the committee.
The legislation, he pointed out,
also asked the President "to use
all means at his disposal to
obtain action by the General
Assembly to terminate" the
committee and the special unit.
"We have been doing precisely
that." Carter said. He added that
Young has "informed" UN
Secretary General Kurt
Waldheim "that we oppose this
and related activities at the UN."
REPORTING THAT only
the UN office in Geneva and
UNESCO headquarters in Paris
will observe the day," outside of
New York, the spokesman also
said "we have told our missions
not to participate in Solidarity
Day and to insure that none of
their personnel attend the
celebrations."
He said that "Ambassador
Young and his staff have urged
other member states to join us in
boycotting Solidarity Day."
France Promises Aid to Lebanon
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) France has
promised to help Lebanon
reorganize and develop its army
which will be supplied with

ment.
President Valery Giscard

dependence.

south which is now in the hands
of various Christian militia. The
French said the Lebanese forces
might also eventually be strong
enough to face a possible leftist
and Palestinian threat.
French and Lebanese officials
said the arms to be supplied will
include light AMX-13 and
medium AMX-30 tanks as well as
helicopters, anti-tank missiles
and three missile-firing speed
boats.
FRENCH SOURCES said that France will also help maintain
French help will be adequate to the 10 Mirage-3 fighter-bombers

the Lebanese air force, and will
help train Lebanese officers and
technicians in France.
Giscard d'Estaing said while
offering a toast in Sarkis' honor
at the Elysee Palace that France
will do all it can to enable
Lebanon to "secure its indepen-
dence, unity and territorial in-
tegrity."
THE FRENCH have con

national reconciliation, charging
that the rightwing militias were
as guilty as the leftwing forces in
jeopardizing the country's unity
and independence.

Chanukah and Christmas
RABBI NATHAN ZELIZER
B'NAI TORAH
Congregation
Boca Raton
Brotherhood Week in the
month of February has a unique
contribution to make in the
general community of our
country. There are, however, too
many brotherly back-slapping
and watered down programs
during the month of February.
Judaism and Christianity are
emphasized in the similarities
between the two faiths. In the
month of December, however, the
cult of sameness and similiarity
is overshadowed, bringing out
the differences between the two
traditions.
Chanukah and Christmas are
beautiful holy days and both,
unfortunately, have succumbed
to the commercialization which
has distorted the basic and
beautiful ideas of both holy days.
Christmas commemorates the
birth of Jesus who is the Messiah
responsible for the salvation of
man; Chanukah commemorates
the struggles of the Maccabees
around 165 B.C.E. A strong
family of Jewish leaders spear-
headed the fight to unite the
Jews in their struggle to preserve
their way of life, their culture,
their right to be different and to
worship their God as they
wished. Chanukah was originally
a minor festival in terms of
religious importance. In modern
times it has grown in importance
as a defense, in a way, especially
with Jewish children who see
their Christian friends treated
with the delights and gifts of
Christmas.
THE FACT that Chanukah
has changed from a minor to a
major festival teaches us how the
Jew must continue to adapt
himself without losing his
uniqueness in order to preserve
his heritage. For non-Jewish
holidays not to become more
attractive than Jewish holidays,
Jews must devise ways of in-
creasing the importance of
Jewish practice to prevent the
total disappearance of Judaism.
The struggle of the Maccabees
was the same to. preserve
Judaism. Their struggle was a
great influence on the early
Christians who chose to be cast
to the lions rather than forsake
their unique belief. Their
struggle, too, was one of the few
against the many but here the
similarities end.
Christmas is unacceptable to
the Jew because he cannot accept
the entry of GOD into the world
in the human form of Jesus and
the creed of the incarnation nor
can Christians accept Judaism
without Jesus. Chanukah and
Christmas point out that Jews
and Christians are unique and
different in their beliefs. We also
remember in the month of
December the historic con-
sequences of the rejection of
Jesus by Jews.
The time has come, however,
when Jews and Christians must
begin to think of the Jewish and
Christian faiths as moving in
parallel lines and stop making the
Jew the scapegoat of all Christian
frustrations. The disagreement
as to how Jews and Christians
see the meaning of God's work in
life is no cause for hating and
condemning each other. The
dilemma of the Jewish and
Christian faiths rejecting each
other should not preclude the fact
that there are meaningful ideals
which Jews and Christians
commonly share. In spite of our
great differences, Jews and'
Christians should fight for
religious freedom.
Christmas and Chanukah
undergird the importance of our
uniqueness, our individuality,
our freedom of belief and con-
science. They should make us
reject any form of mass con-
formity. Early Jews and early
Christians fought and gave their
lives for the preservation of these
common principles. The Syrians
tried to impose Greek culture on
Jews and the Romans tried the
same with early Christians. Jesus
and his followers inherited from
the Maccabees Jewish courage to
fight such impositions. Both
fought for the integrity of the
individual, the dignity of the
human being and the right of
every person to be different.
THIS IS the message of both
Chanukah and Christmas.
Jews and Christians must
continue this struggle to preserve
the humanity, the uniqueness
and the integrity of each human
being however the uniqueness is
expressed. This uniqueness
should make us brothers more
than our similarities.
"Love your neighbor as
yourself" even when he is
different. This is democracy!

^ NEW YORK (JTA) -
Four suspects, identified as
Hispanics, were appre-
hended Sunday in the pre-
dawn street robbery and
stabbing death over the
weekend of a 65-year-old
Orthodox Jew, Irving
Sussman, in the Borough
Park section of Brooklyn,
and a fifth suspect is being
sought, according to a
police department spokes-
man.
At the same time, Mayor
Edward Koch has pledged a "full
and complete investigation" of
the violence that erupted
following the slaying between
police and thousands of Hasidic
residents in the area at which at
least 70 people were injured,
several seriously.
MEANWHILE, the Jewish
Community Relations Council
(JCRC) scheduled a meeting with
its constituent organizations and
with represent at ivp* n( thp rvili.-.-
department, the Borough Park
Community Board and the
Borough Park Jewish Com-
munity Council.
Malcolm Hoenlein, JCRC
executive director, said today
that "we are concerned about this
specific incident, but while we are
concerned about this incident we
are also concerned about the
state of relations between the
police and the Jewish community
in New York."
According to police and other
witnesses, what began as an
orderly though angry demon-
stration by some 3,000 Hasidim
who milled around the 66th Pre-
cinct station house to protest the
alleged delayed response by
police to the slaying, turned ugly
when about 200 Hasidim entered
the station house and began to
smash furniture, overturn file
cabinets and, allegedly, assaulted
the three police officers on duty.
ABOUT 100 police reenforce-
ments were summoned and
bloody fighting spilled into the
streets as police wielded clubs
and protestors punched, clawed
and hurled bricks. First Deputy
Police Commissioner Joseph
Hoffman estimated damage to
the station house at more than
$10,000. No arrests were made
but a police spokesman said
charges might be lodged against
some of the demonstrators.
Koch rushed to the scene as did
his community liaison officer,
Rabbi Edgar Gluck, and Demo-
cratic State Assemblyman
Samuel Hirsch, who represents
the 48th Assembly District that
includes Borough Park. Hirsch
was badly battered by police
clubs, he claimed and both he
and Gluck supported charges by
the Hasidim that the police used
unnecessary violence to disperse
the protestors.
According to police, 62 of the
injured were police officers and
only eight were civilians, in-
cluding one who suffered a heart
attack during the melee. Hirsch
and Gluck disputed that figure.
ONE POLICE officer was re-
portedly partially paralyzed after
being struck by a brick. The
injured were treated at
Maimonides Medical Center in
Borough Park and in Kings
County, Lutheran, Methodist
and Coney Island hospitals also
in Brooklyn.
Koch, who visited the injured
in the Maimonides emergency
room, spoke at length to Hirsch
and Gluck. "This is going to
require a full, complete inves-
tigation," he told a reporter.
Hirsch, who said he went to the
scene in an attempt to calm the
protestors, agreed that the
assault on the precinct house was
an illegal act but insisted that thv
injury of civilians by the police
was "more serious."
Gluck claimed that the police
knew there was a community
reaction to the killing and should
have "taken proper measures in a
non-violent way."
Sussman, a plumber who lived
alone, was stabbed to death some
time after midnight Sunday on
his way home from Sabbath
services at the Bobover Syna-
gogue several blocks from his
home. An Orthodox Jew, he
carried neither money nor
identification.
THE HASIDIM charged that
the police took 45 minutes to
respond to the crime after Suss-
man's body was found by another
Hasid, Moses Benfield. They
claimed that homicide detectives -
failed to arrive for more than two'/
hours. Police attributed the delay
to the fact that Benfield does not
speak English, did not know how
to call the police and wandered
around the empty streets looking
for help.
They said the first call came in |
at 1:17 a.m., 27 minutes after the;
body was discovered and that
officers were on the scene 13
minutes later.
Relations between the police
and the 250,000 Orthodox,!
mostly Hasidic, Jews con-!
centrated in Borough Park have
been generally good according to
police and some community
creasingly large number- of His-
panics and Blacks wl i have
moved into the neighbors >od has
sparked incidents in the past.
Street crimes, general) \. have
been committed against Hasidic
Jews.
DEMANDS FOR improved
police protection have become a
rallying cry. Most protests in the
past were peaceful but there have
been some violent confrontations.
Five years ago five police
officers were bruised and cut
when Hasidim tried to storm the
station house after some Hasidic
youths were allegedly beaten up
by Italian-American youths from
the adjoining Bay Ridge section.

Mourn Demise of 'Lofty' UN Principles
Paul Safro, national president of Bnai Zion, the
oldest American Zionist Fraternal organization,
announced that the United Nations flag was
flown at half mast from its five story building, the
America-Israel Friendship House, in Manhattan,
on Wednesday, Nov. 29 as a symbol of mourning
for what he termed the "demise of the lofty
principles set forth in its Charter."
He referred particularly to paragraph 4 in
Article 2 of the Charter obligating all U.N.
members to "refrain in their international rela-
tions from the threat or use of force against the
territorial integrity or political independence of
any state," a principle which he said "was
strangulated by the General Assembly's support
of the terroristic acts of the PLO."
Two hundred letters of protest to the Soviet
Embassy in Washington are an unusual gift for a
baby shower. In the case of Janella Gudz, they
are more than appropriate.
Mrs. Gudz, a member of a Moscow women's
group that has demonstrated for the right to
emigrate from the USSR, was pregnant when she
received her exit visa last April, but a visa was
denied to her husband, Igor, because of supposed
"military secrets" he had learned during his army
service. The expectant mother was forced to leave
Russia without him. She is now living in Miami.
On Thursday, Dec. 7, the American Jewish
Congress Women's Division, Southeast Region,
is sponsoring a special "baby shower" for Mrs.
Gudz "to lend moral support as well as to protest
a flagrant violation of trie Helsinki Agreement,"
according to Mollie Gersh, president of the
division^^^^m
Bnai B'rith International has denounced the
National Lawyer's Guild's condemnation of
alleged Israeli violations of human rights in the
West Bank and Gaza as "a case of reshaping
reality to fit a pre-conceived political viewpoint."
Jack J. Spitzer, B'nai B'rith's president,
declared in a statement following a press con-
ference here by the Guild that the group "is
obviously attempting to impose standards of
moral conduct upon Israel which no country in
similar circumstances could meet."
Moreover, the report ignores the fact that
Israel's occupation of the West Bank and Gaza
"has been among the most benign in history,"
Spitzer said.
Jewish Agency Chairman Leon A. Dulzin, who
was chairman of the historic Brussels Con-
ference on the human rights of Jews in the Soviet
Union, will speak on "The Destiny of Soviet
Jewry'' at an extraordinary plenary session of the
United Jewish Appeal's 40th Anniversary Na-
tional Conference.
UJA National Chairman Irwin S. Field said the
meeting is slated for Thursday afternoon, Dec. 7,
which will inaugurate the conference at the New
York Hilton Hotel. At this session, UJA's David
Ben-Gurion Award given to outstanding figures
in contemporary Jewish life
Hyman Chabner, active in Miami Beach
building construction and Jewish communal
leader, received the Amudim (Pillar of Education!
Award at the 35th Annual Awards Dinner of
Torah Umesorah, the National Society for
Hebrew Day Schools, which took place recently at
the Hilton Hotel in New York City.
Some 1,000 guests paid tribute to the award
recipient and efforts for Jewish education.
Dr. Joseph Kaminetsky, who has served for
more than three decades as national director of
Torah Umesorah, was honored at the annual
function of the Hebrew Day School movement
when he received a sacred scroll {Sefer Torah)
presented to him on behalf of. 92,000 children

William H. Wynn, president of the Retail
Clerks International Union, AFL-CIO, has been
selected as American labor's 1978 national
recipient of the Israel Prime Minister's Medal and
will be honored at a National Israel Tribute
Dinner on Saturday evening, Dec. 9, in the
American Hotel in New York.
The dinner, which is being held in cooperation
with the State of Israel Bond Organization, is
under the auspices of a committee of leaders in
the retail industry and labor in both the United
States and Canada.
Conclave Focuses on
Plight of Soviet Jew
Rabbi William Marder of
Temple Beth David in Palm
Beach Gardens and Mrs. Lynn
Persoff, chairperson of the South
County Soviet Jewry Task Force
of the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, recently attended
the Southeast Regional Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry. The
conference, sponsored by the
Jewish Federations in the
Southeast, dealt with the plight
of Jews living in the Soviet Union
and the means by which local
communities can deal with these
problems.
The workshops included
discussions on the 1980 Olym-
pics, to be held in Russia and
inter-religious coalitions for
Soviet Jewry.
Rabbi Marder stated that the
issue of human rights often
clouds the issue of Soviet Jewry.
"Inter-religious groups dealing
with human rights are altogether
different," stated Marder. "They
are not looking toward emi-
gration. They're looking for alle-
viation of restrictions within the
Soviet Union regarding their
religious group. Jews are saying
emigrate, get out, because there
is no future there." He add
"Generalized pleas for hun_
rights do not pinpoint the Sovii
Jewish issue.
Marder added that he is
pressed with how much t
Soviet Jewry issue has become!
local community issue and
the community has been invoi,,
in activities on behalf of Sovii
Jews.
Lynn Persoff stated,
currently exists a vicious c>,
the Soviet Union. The more Je
that emigrate, the less Sovit-
open educational opportunities j
Jews. The closing of education
opportunities causes Soviet Je
to further disperse. This is
dismal prospect for Jews who t.
left behind. What we know, si
continued, is that a Jewish i
naissance is taking place as]
result of refusenik activitij
"Hebrew teachers are self-Uu
from books as teaching u
Hebrew language is forbidden."
The conference was spons
in cooperation with the Nj
Jewish Community Relati
Advisory Council and
National Conference on
Jewry.

TETLEY TEA
IN THE GLASS
CORNED BEEF
ON THE RYE
Your thirst will tell you-
iced Tetley Tea is iced tea
at its best. Because Tetley
stands up to ice. Its flavor
just won't melt! Tetley is
made with tiny tea leaves
for big flavor. Deep rich
color, too. Since Tetley
starts out stronger it lasts
longer. No wonder the fa-
vorite in Jewish homes has
been Tetley since 1875-now
beginning a second century!
K on the package means certified Kosher
