Capucci in Exchange?
We understand just how soul-searing an issue are
the unreturned bodies of fallen Israeli soldiers in the
defense of their country during the Yom Kippur War.
We understand the rage most every one feels in the
face of the fact that the Egyptians have broken every
promise on this issue and are still bargaining for the
release of convicted terrorists in Israeli prisons as the
price for the return of the bodies.
But now we also understand that Archbishop Hi-
larion Capucci, the cleric who used his robes to dis-
guise his gun-running for the PLO, may be one of the
terrorists Israel is contemplating releasing in the body-
No matter how hot the issue, we would find this
Israeli succumbing to Arab blackmail absolutely inex-
ORT Day Program
"Every Jew who keeps silent, silences the Jewish
people." This clearly sums up the theme of ORT Day
Today, 30 years alter the end of World War II, in
which some six-million Jews were murdered in full view
of the world's silent indifference, Jews all over the
world again face a new threat to their very survival.
Once again, anti-Semitism begins to emerge every-
where. Arab states, buoyed by their oil monopoly and
international economic power, are attempting to exclude
Jews from commercial enterprise, industrial participa-
tion and even equal opportunity employment in the
In our own country, not only humanitarian con-
cerns, but vital services are being cut back by reces-
sion. Our young people are being alienated; our old
people are cast aside.
Never before has the need been so great for every
Jewish woman to stand up and be counted as she be-
comes involved in the life-saving ORT program which
offers security and a future.
It is toward this end that ORT seeks to reenroll and
recruit new members for ORT Day.
Today, ORT is responsible for more than 65 per-
cent of all vocational training in Israel; while the de-
mand for ORT training in western Europe, Iran, India,
North Africa and Latin America continues to grow.
In our community, it is the Southeastern Florida
Region of Women's American ORT that can make you
a part of the great and worthy programs of ORT. Con-
tact them on or before ORT Day. Join a worthy cause.
New Jewish Solidarity
American Jews are celebrating Israel's 27th anni-
versary with the theme, "Strength in Unity." They are
displaying this unity through a strong support of Israel,
solidarity with Soviet Jews and the willingness to spend
time and money as evidenced by the Jewish leaders who
journeyed to five cities to meet with Israeli Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon in his United Jewish Appeal-spon-
sored "Operation Israel" tour.
Since the Yom Kippur War Jewish solidarity in the
United States and elsewhere has been fused as never
before and continues to grow each day. This has been
demonstrated by the unprecedented donations to the
United Jewish Appeal and purchase of Israel Bonds.
This financial help to Israel is still desperately
needed and must continue to help human needs in a
Jewish State burdened by a heavy defense burden.
Jews are determined that Israel will survive, and
But Jewish unity is not being expressed only in
money. It is being shown in the willingness of the aver-
age Jew to march and demonstrate in support of Soviet
Jewry and of Israel.

The point is. as it was then,
too. that mainly it was a sad day
for Israel, not America, but Kis-
singer could not adjust his Bis
marckian eye from the sights of
his Prussian blood-andiron diplo-
macy to see anything in the Mid-
dle East except through the sen-
sibilities of an earth-moving poli-
tician who had to walk away from
the problem without having mov-
ed a pebble.
LEST THIS is insufficient to
prove the point about the pres-
sure that is still being applied
on Israel, there are all the snide
and conflicting Kissinger state-
ments about "Israeli intransi-
gence" he "leaked" to reporters
in a rageful "orientaUon" lecture
on his plane back to Washington
conflicting in the sense that
they were "leaked" and publish-
ed, but promptly denied by the
State Department as either "in-
accurate" or else "premature."
There are also the snide and
conflicting Kisssinger statements
on "Israeli intransigence" he
made to Gerald Ford in a rage-
ful 'orientation" lecture immedi-
ately as he returned to Washing-
ton again, conflicting in the
sense that they were made and
"leaked" for publication, but
again promptly denied by the
State Department as either "in-
accurate" or else "premature."
Then there are the Kissinger

It is interesting that Florida

Everyone but Egypt Knew How Negotiations Went
By JOSEPH POLAKOFF
__ Egyptian news media are
^t pr'cparin? the Arab pub-
lic for any significant politi-
cal concessions by Egypt in
return for Israel's with-
drawal from the strategic
s and oil fields in the
Sinai, according to informa-
tion received here from
Analysts here have been
pointing out that the ques-
tion in the recent negotia-
tions being led by Secretary
of State Henry A. Kissinger
is not what Israel will give
up since it Has been known
for many weeks that Jeru-
salem is prepared to leave
the strategic Mitla and
Gidi Passes and the Abu
Rodeis oil fields at the tip
of the Gulf of Suez.
THIS WAS one half of Kissin-
ger's 50-50 assessment of chances
for success before he left Wash
inRton. The other half, now
lost after almost ;: fortnight
of shuttling by Kissinger, is what
Egypt was prepared to contribute.
In this context, the Cairo me-
dia are silent on conciliation with
Israel. Rather, they arc empha-
sizing, as the Middle Kast News
Agency in Cairo broadcast in Ara-
bic, that the Can.' press is unani-
mous that on his recent visit to
Israel Kissinger presented a
Sadat specification that Israeli
withdrawal in the Sinai must be
related to a similar withdrawal
on the Syrian front and the invit
ing of the Palestinians to Geneva.
WHILE ISRAELIS say any Is
raeli-Egyptian agreement must
not be altered at Geneva, the
semi-official Al Ahram is saying
editorially in Cairo that the re-
cent discussions were re. being
held for the purpose of ending
the war or concluding a peace
The newspaper, Al Akhbar. de-
clared that Kissine
aimed at bringin", about a new
Israeli withdrawal This task, it
said, was known to all except Is-
That newspaper also said Is-
rael was disregarding what it
claims is Kissingers aim. and the
Israelis are trying io change the
nature and objectives of Kissin-
gers present tour.
Kissinger Says Israel 'Misled' Him
AN EARLIER analysis in
Washinf.tr n that Egypt was de-
liberately inflating Kissingers
chances of success in order to
pin the blame on Israel as "in
transigent when he failed, ap-
to be accurate.
The Cairo propaganda appears
to be abetted by some American
commentators who argued that if
Israel were not so intransigent
and gives up the land it occupied
in the Six-Day War, then peace
would be at hand.
Egyptian President Anwar Sa*
dat's public position appears un-
changed. His people know only
from their media that an Israeli
withdrawal is imperative and
without any Egyptian acceptance
of Israel's sovereignty and a
pledge of continuing negotiations
to achieve peace.

Capital Punishment Louis Brouto, 79, Former
For Terrorists? JDC Chairman, Dies In NYC
JERUSALEM (JTA) Police Minister Shlomo
Hillel said here that the question of capital punishment
for terrorists may have to be reconsidered.
Appearing before the Knesset's Interior Committee,
he disputed the claim of its chairman, Likud leader
Yosef Tamir, that the execution of terrorists would
make martyrs out of them.
"THOSE TERRORISTS who are killed in action are
considered martyrs anyway," Hillel said, and 'capital
punishment, therefore, may prove to be a deterrent."
He said the murder of hostages, as in last week's
Savoy Hotel tragedy, justified reconsideration of the
issue but he did not say whether he would raise the
subject in the Cabinet.
Capital punishment is barred by Israeli law though
it may be imposed in extreme cases by a panel of civil-
As terrorists ur% normally tried by military tri-
bunals, the maximum penalty is life imprisonment.
A CASE in point is that of Kozo Okamoto, the sole
survivor of the three Japanese Red Army "kamikaze"
terrorists who perpetrated the Lod Airport massacre in
1972 and is now serving a life sentence.
Hillel told the Knesset committee that the govern-
ment has appointed a special ministerial team, aided by
experts, to map out contingency plans for dealing with
emergencies such as the Savoy Hotel attack.
On Kaiwah Island
CHARLESTON, S.C. (JTA) The Charleston
County Council rejected protests from Charleston Jews
and conservationists and voted preliminary approval to

Local environmental and Jewish groups had lob-
bied strongly against the proposal since the Kuwait
sheikhdom and Kuwait investors purchased the 5,500-
acre Kiawah Island for S17 million in 19"4.
THE VOTE last Thursday by the council members,
acting as the council's finance committee, apparently
cleared the way for a full council approval next month
of a change in the classification of the island from
general agricultural to a planned development area.
Frank Epstein, attorney for the Kiawah Defense
Fund, which was organized by local environmental
groups to battle the Kuwait project, said that the issue
might be taken ;o the courts. In response to objections
from the Charleston Jewish community, the Kuwait-
owned corporation issued a non-discrimination pledge,
which was made part of the preliminary approval
vote by the council.

What is the Jewish atti-
tude towards cremation?
Disposal of the dead body by
burning is not a Jewish custom,
and burial is considered by tra-
ditional Jews to be obligatory
and a religious commandment.
There are some biblical say-
ings which have been advanced
as scriptural proof texts justify-
ing cremation, such as "for dust
thou art. and unto dust shalt thou
return*' (Gen. 3:19).
Cremation, says the authorita-
tive Encyclopaedia Judaica. was
not unknown to the ancient He-
brews, and "burning" was one of
the four death penalties imposed
by the biblical code for a num-
ber of offenses (Lev 20:14; 21:9).
But the ancient rabbi* found the
execution of this death sentence
so abhorrent that they refused to
interpret the injunction literal.v.
Cremation was obviously consid-
ered such a humiliation that it
should not even be inflicted on
'.>. According to the
Roman hi-! irian Tacit;!-, the
Jew- "b iry rather than burn
The Mishnah considers the
burning of a corpse to be an
idolatrous practice. Some rabbis
felt a cremation is a damning de-
nial of the belief in bodily resur-
rection and a brutal affront to
the dignity of the human body.
With reference to resurrection,
most believing Jews do not ac-
cept the doctrine of the resur-
rection of the dead in the basic
literal sense It would certainly
lie within the power of God to
reconstitute a body that has been
decayed after burial. Are the mil-
lion* of Jews whose bodies were
cremated during the Holocaust,
denied their place in the Here-
after because they had been
burnt and not buried'*
Modern orthodox authorities
insist, says the EncvcloDaedia Ju-
daica. that burial is the proper

to develop a respect for Jewish learning, to put the values of the
mind and spirit before all else.
As Daniel Webster said. "If we work upon marble, it will perish.
If we work upon brass, time will efface it. If we rear temples, they
will crumble to dust But if we work upon men's immortal minds,
if we imbue them with high principles, with the just fear of G-d and
love of their fellow men. we engrave on those tablets something which
no man can efface and which will brighten to all eternity."
THE HOME IS THE FIRST and most important school of all. In
order to educate youth properly, the classroom needs the solid founda-
tion that only a good home can provide. Parents, recognize your
responsibilities as fathers and mothers. No teacher can ever, ever sub-
stitute for you. The child is the loser if you shift to the teacher the
prior obligations which G-d has delegated to parents.
Show a true and continuing interest in each child's progress at
school. This will do more than anything else to deepen in them a
respect for the importance of Jewish learning. Impress on them early
in life that a complete education includes a Torah education. Help
them to cultivate habits of study through doing homework, attending
Sabbath service, reading good books, and through respecting elders

that "if the ashes can be coffin-

On what do Jews base
their conviction that th.' Jews
Of the exiled iMUtllOl will
inevitablv be returned to Is-
The basis for thi- belief is in
the Bible. In the book of Deute-
ronomy (30:3 > it is written that
the Almighty "will return and
gather thee from ail the peoples.
where the Lord, thy God hath
The prophet Isaiah wrote I I-ai-
ah 11:12) "And He will assemble
the exile of Israel." Similar
statements are found in other
books of the Prophets (e.g..
Ezekiel 20:34) This promise is
regarded as a basic part of the
covenant that exists between the
Jewish people and the Almighty.
Why does Jewish traditioa
require that oae cwnsune his
feed at his table leisurely
and not hurriedly?
The Talmud (Berakot 25)
claims that one who eats leisure-
ly at his table will live longer.
Some claim this is so because
the table at which one eats is
like the altar of the holy temple.
The altar was a means of for-
giveness and so is the family
table at which one eats Forgive-
ness brings longevity of life
which might otherwise have been
forfeited because of one's sins
Obviously, one who eats de-
liberately at his table will not
rush into hasty decisions and
spend a more pleasant life which
would indeed produce longevity.
There are some who claim that
the tradition to eat leisurely and
slowly prolongs the mealtime and
thus a poor man has more time
to knock at the door and be in-
vited in for the meal Otherwise,
he would have less chance to re-
ceive attention when knocking at
the door in his state of hunger.
Why does Jewish tradition
require that some words of
Torah learning be expressed
and discussed at the table
when one eats?
It is this practice which sup-
posedly makes the difference be-
tween eating as an animal fuM
tion and eating as a human en:
Animals have little
mind when they con-ume th
food. Man. an intellectual being,
an image of the Almighty, raises

DENOUNCES OPPOSITION DEBATE
Rabin Defends Alton's
Trip from Likud Attack
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Yitzhak Rabin
strongly defended Foreign Minister Yigal Allon's trip to the
l.S. in the Knesset and angrily denounced Likud for de-
manding a debate on the subject especially "during this
week of national unity and identification."
Rabin addressed a special recess session of the Knesset
called at the insistence of Likud.
THE HOUSE, by a vote of 43
2" with six abstentions, decisively
defeated a Likud motion protest-
ing Allon's visit to the U.S. dur-
ing which he met with Secretary
of State Henry A. Kissinger in

firm on the positions it took dur-
ing the bilateral negotiations with
Egypt conducted by Kissisnger
which were suspended Mar. 22.

Ford's Israel Remarks Criticized]
Contiiiired from Page 9
THEIR MEETING wflr M the
first high level Israeli US ses-
sion since Kissinger left Jeru-.i
lem Mar. 22. when his attempt
for a second Egyptian Israeli
agreement was suspended.
Some independent observers
saw a plus for Israel in the Pres-
ident's remarks in that he did
not refer to his "reassessment"
of the Middle Kast situation
which has been widely construed
as pressure on Israel to accede
to the Egvptian demands in the
Kissinger shuttle diplomacy.
On the other hand, his absence
of any words of specific U.S.
traditional support for Israel
was seen as a minus.
Of the sparse comment heard
from the Congress, most of it
dealt with comparisons and rea-
sons for U.S. aid to South Viet-
nam and Israel with the majority
of those talking about that com-
parison taking note that the cir-
cumstances are dissimilar since
Israel is fighting external forces
seeking to destroy her and is a
united and democratic nation.
DURING THE discussions on
television of Ford's address, three
Senators took different views on
linking military aid to South
Vietnam with aid to Israel.
On CBS-TV. Sen. James Buck-
ley (C..R..NY) said that the I S
should provide South Vietnam
with aid to help reverse the Viet-
cong attack just as the US aided
Israel during the Vom Kippur
However. Senators George
McGovern (D.S.D.) and Frank
Church (D.. Idaho) took issue,
noting that Israel was not lik.'
South Vietnam They noted that
Israel was a democracy, fought
its own wars and won them, and
had a good army capable of

Rabbi Kesner told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, in a mail
interview, that Wallace, which has ten Jewish families, is the only
settlement among the five without a synagogue building.
The 49-year-old bachelor rabbi said the 33 Jewish families of
Myrtle Beach, made up mostly of retired senior citizens, were his
most active congregation, full of ideas and energy which he re-
ported keep him -puffing" his way through his weekly visit.
BORN IN Worcester. Mass., and ordained at Tifereth Israel
Rabbinical Seminary of America in Brooklyn. Rabbi Kesner re-
ported that the rabbinate had been the "logical result" of his
youthful activities and young adult education, starting as a teen-
age cantor at a Worcester synagogue.
He said the late Rabbi Morris Adler, of Detroit, urged hinv
to enter the rabbinate while he was studying at Wayne Uni-
versity for a social work degree.
Rabbi Adler arranged for the young student to conduct serv-
ices in the small towns around Detroit and subsequently, he
reported, he "welcomed the opportunity in 1964 to join the circuit-
riding rabbi project."
He declared that he had ilo been a synagogue educator,
administrator and youth director in Ohio and New York before
accepting the circuit offer.
THE AUTOMOBILE appears to have an indispensable role
in the maintenance of Jewish life in Rabbi Kesner's dispersed
congregations, apart from his own use of a car. The eight Jewish
