American President Gerald
Ford and Egypt's Anwar Sa-

summit meeting here with
the agreement to continue
the diplomatic momentum
in the search for a solution
to the Middle East crisis.
The two men, who have
met on five different occa-
sions in less than 30 hours,
have reportedly considered
the two main options now
open: the renewal of State
Secretary Henry Kissinger's

seeking an overall settle-
WHILE BOTH options

sources here believe that the
odds are neavuy weighted
in favor of a rapid renewal

ice in the Middle East.
President Ford made it clear,
when he addressed the press
here, that all alternatives are
still lv.'iii'j considered and that
the "period of reassessment" is
not yet concluded.
American sources here say
Ford will inform Israeli Pre-
mier Itzhak Rabin of his con-
versations with Sadat and will
present the Israeli leader with
the two options. These sources
believe that Rabin will also
probably opt for a renewal of
Dr. Kissinger's mission.
WHATEVER the final result
of the American reassessment,
President Ford made it clear
throughout his stay in Salzburg
that America "will not tolerate
a stalemate" in the negotia-
Another result of the Ford-

The Word from Salzburg
President Ford's meeting with President Sadat at
Salzburg is either a page of comic relief in the history
of the modern Middle East, or else it is one of the most
tragic events in the existence of the State of Israel.
Our understanding, which comes directly froa> the
Secretary of State himself, is that the administration's
reassessment of U.S. foreign policy in the area is far
from complete.
Dr. Kissinger, or. the eve of the President's flight to
Europe to attend tr.e NATO sessions in Brussels, de-
clared that not until Ford had met Sadat and then Israel
Premier Yitzhak Rabin in Washington sometime next
week, would there be a statement about what he hopes
to help achieve on the road toward peace in the Middle
But President F.rd's pronouncements following his
meeting with Sadat suggests that Ford, together with a
sanctimonious Sadat, has already made up his mind.
In fact, the spirit of his pronouncements has not
changed even one whit since Dr. Kissinger's return late
in March from his derailed shuttle, when Israel refused
further concessions without a statement of non-bellig-
erency from Egypt.
Both Ford and Sadat agree: Israel is the culprit.
Israel must make all the concessions. Rabin's visit next
week stares into the face of a fait accompli.
The sad thing is that no American has voted for
either President; yet both are telling us how it's going
to be.
A Reunited Jerusalem
When Simone de Beauvoir, the noted French writer
and philosopher, visited Jerusalem recently, she declar-
ed that it would be unthinkable to redivide that city
again. To this, the Jews of the world say, 'amen.''
On June 7. it will be eight years since Jerusalem
was reunited. Who can forget the emotional experience
of seeing those pictures of Israeli soldiers praying and
weeping at the Western Wall?
Since then, Jerusalem has become a city of rebuild-
ing, not only of homes, offices, synagogues and schools,
but also of relationships. As Mayor Teddy Kollek pointed
out recently, the example shown in the last eight years
in Jerusalem that Jews and Arabs can live together
could serve as a guide for peace between Israel and the
Arab states.
This is why the UNESCO condemnation of Israel's
actions in Jerusalem is so galling. As Ms. de Beauvoir
pointed out, she found that far from despoiling the Arab
character of the city, the archaeological digs in Jerusa-
lem have uncovered the buried glories of the city's Arab
past. It should be added that it has also uncovered the
glories of the Jewish and Christian past, as well.
Contrast this with 15 years of Jordanian rule when
Jews were barred from visiting the Western Wall; when
the Jewish quarter of the old city was sacked; when
synagogues and Jewish cemeteries were destroyed and
Today Jerusalem is a city of over 300,000 persons,
two-thirds of them Jewish. It is a city where there is a
free mingling of peoples and religions that could be an
example to the rest of the world.
A Fascinating Story
The Ghorbal story has led a fascinating history.
It began with what is now an alleged interview in
Buenos Aires in which an Egyptian official is supposed
to have said that the aim of the Arab world is the de-
struction of Judaism not Israel Judaism.
It "ended" last week with our publication of a let-
ter to The Jewish Floridian from the Egyptian Embassy
in Washington denying that the official ever made such
a statement, or that the destruction of Judaism was the
aim of the Arab world.
Admittedly, the Egyptian letter to us was a strictly
formal piece of correspondence identical copies of
which, we are certain, were sent to newspapers across
the country.
But we find it fascinating that the Egyptian Em-
bassy should have been so exorcized by the JTA inter-
view and so earnestlv determined to deny it.
We have run all sides of this story, beginning with
Jack Siegel s original report, continuing with Washing-
ton JTA Bureau Chief Joseph Polakoffs in-depth anal-
ysis of the bmha that followed Siegel's interview, and
now the Egyptian Embassy denial.
We hope it has proved fascinating for our readers,
too. Because, hold on. The story is not ended yet at all.
Now there is confirmation of the truth of the inter-
view, as the latest Page One story shows in our most
recent issue.
What next?
7 The Truth in a Greeting Car]
rpHE THING to do is to accept
the fact that contemporary
Russian civilization is as po-
litically criminal as the Nazis
eyet were,
That is a hard thing to do at
a rime when we are being re-
galed by propaganda that the
Na?is weren't all that bad. that
they never killed anywhere near
six million Jews anyway, whic
is to say that morality is now
question of quantity rather tha
of qualitv.
IT IS also a hard thing to
do at a time when some of our
better respected politicians,
both in Europe and America, are
sayinR that in World War II we
fought the wrong enemy.
Still, the criminality of the
Nazi beast stands in mute testi-
mony to his existence at Bu-
chenwald and Auschwitz and
Teresienstadt and Buna-Mono-
witz and and and
One can go on and on.
The great contribution of
Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is that
the Russians can no longer
deny, that is to say not with
the hone that anyone will really
believe them, that they are in-
deed as politically oppressive
and indifferent to human dig-
nity as the Hitler era Germans
ever were.
IN HIS book. "The Gulag
Archipelago." Solzenitsyn writes
of Soviet society that. "They
know nothing, and they've
never heard of the Archipelago
as a whole or of any one of its
innumetable islands."
This is an uncomfortably
close replica of the ignorance
ol the Germans in the post-war
interrogation period. No one
knew anything. No one had ever
seen a belching smokestack or
smelled the stink of burning
No one was a Nazi.

assessing its role in the uni-

trading our integrity for air

Alas, a cold came along, and I
had to cancel. But it gave an
imaginative push to my dreams.
Floating through them, for
several days, was the figure of
the Shah, successor to the
storied Persian emperors, who
had inherited a shaky kingdom
and made a go of it. and had
banished a beautiful young
wife because she couldn't give
him a son.
HE TRIED to modernize his
kingdom without relaxing his
total rule over it. and when the
market value of the oil deposit-
ed under the desertthrough
no fault of his ownhad quad-
rupled he became rich beyond
all imagining.
So there he is, with his throne
on a cloud, very sure of him-
self, with the world at his feet,
with everyone groveling before
him because his new money has
flung a halo around the rickety-
grandeur of his ancient king-
THOSE WHO know him speak
of his ability, but whether or
not he became rich because he
was wise, certainly he is now
wise because he is rich.
Overnight he became a ma-

But Rabin asserted flatly that
Israel would never return to its
pre-June. 1967 borders and
warned that if his government
drafted a precise peace pro-
gram at this time, what Israel
offered as its maximal conces-
sions would be taken by the
Arabs as nothing more than an
initial bargaining position that
could be whittled down.
RABIN, who will have his
fateful summit meeting with
President Ford in Washington
a little more than one week
from now, drew no maps but in
effect presented a broad outline
of future frontiers from which
he indicated that Israel will nev-
er retreat.
He said that Israel would in-
sist on a permanent presence
in Sinai of a yet undertermined
depth but which must include
a land link to Sharm el-Sheikh
at the southeastern tip of the
Rabin pledged that Israel
would never "descend" from the
Golan Heights. Though he did
not specify to what depth Is-
rael would remain on the
Heights, he indicated that the
future boundaries would be de-
termined by existing Israeli set-
tlements on the Golan.
"WE DID not set up the set-
tlements there in order to take
them down ag>" Rabin told
the Alignment members.
He said that on the West
Bank, Israel had proposed a set-
tlement based roughly on the
so called Allon plan, drafted by
the present Foreign Minister
Yigal Allon shortly after the
1967 Six Day War. which en-
visioned retention of a strip
along the Jordan River .fid
autonomy for the Arab popu-
lated regions of the West Bank.

ternative "functional" arrange-
ments were all rejected by
Analyzing events that fol-
lowed the collapse of Secretary
of State Henry A. Kissinger's
efforts to promote an Israeli-
Egyptian second-stage agree-
ment in Sinai last March, Ra-
bin said Israel had achieved a
major success by demonstrating
that it could stand up to pres-
sure. He said the Arabs should
have learned a lesson from this.
THE PREMIER rejected the
"fears and dark prophecies of
some soothsayers" and declared
that Isnel's political position
had improved of late.
He was r(ferring apparently
to last week's letter from 76
Senators urging Ford to reaf-
firm America's commitment to
economic and military support
for Israel and Israel's new trade
agreement with the European
Common Market which was
concluded despite bitter pro-
tests and threats from the Arab
Observers believe Rabin feels
that, armed with the strong
statement of support from an
overwhelming majority of U.S.
Senators, he can meet with Ford
in a position to withstand Ad-
ministration pressure for con-
cessions by Israel.

organization created to invest
money in Israeli industry.
The sudden collapse of the
financial empire headed by
Tibor Rosenbaum brought sub-
stantial losses for both the Is-
rael Corporation and Zim Lines.
An official investigation dis-
closed that Tzur had transfered
funds from the two firms to
Rosenbaum's financial institu-
tions without seeking approval
of the boards of the two com-
panies. Tzur was put on trial
after an intensive investigation
of the transactions.
THE COURT, in passing
sentence, called Tzur's activi-
ties a show of disregard for the
law. The court said Tzur's mo-
tivation was not financial prob-
lems but rather a drive to en-
large his fortunes.
The prosecution had demand-1
ed a prison sentence of 30;
years but the court rejected the
demand, calling it "unrealistic."
Tzur's defense attorneys indi-
catetd they were considering an
appeal to the Supreme Court for
a milder sentence.

HE IS said to believe that the

on Israel in view of Congres-

Consequently, observers say.
Rabin will offer no new "ideas"
prior to Ford's meeting with
Egyptian President Anwar Sa-
dat in Salzburg, and that the
next move toward renewed ne-
gotiations will have to come
from Egypt.
Nevertheless, it was clear af-
ter the debate, that Israel's gov-
erning Labor Alignment is fair-
ly evenly split between "hawks"
and "doves."
During the course of the de-

The main division within the
Alignment, he said, was over
the West Bank and Israel's fu-
ture eastern borders. He said
that he himself backed the view
that the Jordan River must re-
main Israel's security frontier,
policed bv Israeli forces.
Barlev said that subject to
this condition, arrangements
should be made to ensure that
the large bulk of the West
Bank's Arab population remains
outside of the Jewish State.
Barlev stressed that no Arab
state was prepared to consider
anything less than total with-
drawal and for that reason Is-
rael has no cause to draft its
peace plan now. "The day for
Israel to take decisions is the
morning after the first Arab
leader says he agrees to terri-
torial compromise." Barlev said.

The abolition of kneeling in
prayer by Jews is one of the
interesting examples of a cus-
totn's abolition simply because
it had become characteristic of
the forms of worship evolved by
other religions The Muham-
medan custom of removing
one's shoes for prayer led to its
abolition as a Jewish form of
reference, and kneeling as an
essential form of Jewish wor-
ship, the E J explains, was
abolished when it became asso-
ciated with the Christian
The rationale was found by
interpreting the verse of Lev.
26:1 to mean that it was for-
bidden to kneel or prostrate
oneself on any stone floor, with
the exception of the floor of the
Temple. .As a result, although
the Aleinu prayer which con-
cludes every service has the
specific phrase, "and we bend
the knee and prostrate our-
selves." etc the act of bowing
is not generally practised

Issues And Answers..
Our Rabbis' Views
The Spirit of 76
Our country' is now gearing up to celebrate two hundred
years of independence.
The spirit of 1776 calls us to return to ideals and values,
many of which are essentially Jewish in origin. It is appro-
priate that we examine our Jewish values and strive to renew our
spiritual heritage at this time in history.
The Jewish equivalent of a "social contract" took place at
Mount Sinai. The people as well as Moses accepted a code of
at ha*ha and beliefs The people as well as the leaders pledged
themselves to be "a kingdom of priests and a holy people." The
individuals, collectively, participated in the formation of a Jew-
ish people. It was not imposed upon them, neither was it viewed
as a way of life for the select leaders or professionals No. it was
a participatory religion, an experiential religion, an activist re-
HOW FAR we have come from that distant time and place!
Today. Judaism has become a religion of "professionals.'" We
have professional fund raisers who support Jewish charities We
nave professional liturgists who sing and read the prayers in
place of ffle congregants 'the very term Shebeen tabur" re-
quired that the one who leads prayers be the representative of
his colleagues, taken from the congregation) The Mrttvoth, such
as visiting the sick, are left largely to rabbis.
Fart of the blame lies with the community that looks for
the easy way out '"Let someone else say Kaddish for me. I'm
too busy") Part of the blame hes with our society and its
priorities But another part of the Mama must he at the feet of
the professionals who tolerate absentee-Judaism. They prefer
passive Judaism, because it gives them greater freedom to follow
tfceir own interests without interference from others.
The consequences are debilitating What good is a Rabbi who
preaches to an empty sanctuary? Of what use is a religious
school that has a fine staff of itsaurcea but is lacking in students'

(plural: kibbutzim, kevuzot is
a voluntary collective com-
munity, mainly agricultural, in
which there is no private wealth
"and which is responsible for all
the needs of the members and
their families. According to the
authoritative Encyclopaedia Ju-
daica. the kibbutz movement in
Israel in 196 numbered 93.000
people in 231 kibbutzim and
kevuzot organized in several
federations according to social,
political, and religious outlook.
The first kevuzah was found-
ed in 1909 at Deganyah by a
group of pioneers, who under-
took collective responsibility for
the working of the farm. An-
other group, which started work
at Kinneret in the same year,
became an independent kevuzah
in 1913. By 1914 there were 11
kevuzot established on Jewish
National Fund land under the
responsibility of the Zionist Or-
ganization, and the number
grew to 29 by the end of 191%.
The early kevuzot had small

The kibbuitz is a unique pro-
duct of the Zionist labor move-
ment and the Jewish national
revival It was developed by
Jewish workers inspired by
ideas of social justice as an
integral part of the Zionist ef-
fort to resettle the homeland
Ever since its inception, the
kibbutz movement has played
a pioneering role in the econ-
omic, political, cultural and se-
curity activities required to
carry out that purpose.
The kizzutz movement has
been, and still is. a major factor
in the activities of the Zionist
movement and the State of Is-
rael Its influence has been
both moral and practical, rang-
ing from settlement and se-
curity functions (including set-
tling new areas since the Six
Day War), to the absorption of
immigrants and Youth Aliyah
children and the provision of
leading personnel for Zionist
and government service.
The number of kibbutz mem-
bers in the Knesset and among
army officers is far beyond
their proportion of the popula-
tion. This influence is indicated
by such diverse statistics as the
fact that its production ac-
counts for 12 percent of Israel -
gross national product, and that
more than 20 members of the
Knesset are kibbutz members
In recent years, the move-
ment has been increasing in
size at the rate of about 2-3
percent a year Although it baa
become an established institu-
tion, it has demonstrated a
capacity of changing mlh the
times, the Judaica concludes.

What is a "shtibul?"
A shtibul" is the name usu-
ally given to a Hasidic syna-
gogue. The term means "a small
Originally, when the Hasidic
movement developed, the estab-
lished congregations were, of
course, not Hasidic The estab-
lishment often was antagonistic
to Hasidim Also, the Hasidic
mode of prayer included a good
deal of singing bv the congre-
gants as a whole along with
more bodilv movement. This
was not welcomed in the estab-
lished congregations Therefore,
the Hasidic groups were forced
to assembly in homes often
the home of the Hasidic leadei
or rabbi.
The establishment and its fol-
lowers looked down on the Hasi-
dim and referred to them as
the people who worshipped in
"little homes" (shtiblach) as
compared to themselves who
worshipped in comparatively
larger and well established
vnagogues Apparently the Ha-
sidim managed to convert this
title of shame into a name of
honor and so. to this day. many
refer to Hasidic places of pray-
er as "shnolach."
What Is a "kahtzan?"
A "kabtzan" is another name
for a poor man. The term tech-
nically means "a collector."
This is applied to a poor man
because a poor man used to go
around and collect alms to sus-
tain himself.
In many communities in
Europe the poor man had to
have a letter from the head of
the community or the rabbi
testifying to the fact that he was
indeed poor and unable to sup-
port himself in any other way.

Kugel" is a name given to a
delicacy which contains a stuf-
fing of meat or other foods con-
tained in a crust of dough
which covers it both from above
and beneath.
Some claim that the term
"kugel" indicates its circular
appearance and comes from the
Hebrew "k'igul" which means
"like a circle."
It is claimed that the idea of
eating a delicacy contained be-
tween an upper and lower crust
is a means of remembering the
manna which the Hebrews had
for food in the wilderness. That
manna was contained between
a layer of daw underneath it
and a layer of dew above it.
The Sabbath is an appropri-
ate time to remember this be-
cause of at least two reasons:
the Sabbath itself is a reminder
of the exodus from Egypt:
furthermore, on the eve of the
Sabbath two portions of manna
were found at the doorstep in-
stead of the usual daily one so
that the extra one would be

gone. In fact, until now.
Alexander Dolgun's story is a
different beast. Here, the read-
e: is baited into examining Dol-
gun's account by a simple de-
uce How did an American
wind up in a Russian concen-
tration camp?
DOLGUN'S STORY begins in
the grail American depression.
Hi- lather went to the Soviet
Union as an expediency: to
hunt for a job.
The older Dolgun's reasoning
was simple enough: The world's
economies lay in shambles, but
before the first decade of revo-
lution had passed, the Soviets
were already faltering in their
task of building a new Com-
munist society. They needed
technologists of all kinds, and
he was an engineer.
The rest of the book is a re-
counting of the younger Dol-
gun's own arrest late in 1948
at age 22. Why it happened,
seems less important to Dolgun
than that it did happenmain-
ly to him.
THE DOLGUN story is even
rooted in the always fertile soil
of romance. He couldn't, damn
it. have been arrested at a
worse time.
He was in a junior position
at the American Embassy in
Moscow and in love with Mary
Catto. who served on the staff
of the British Embassy, also in
Their friends, he remembers
fondly, called them "Mr. and
Mrs Half-and-Hawf." a refer-
ence to the difference in their
English accents a difference
made all the more heartwarm-
ing and then heartbreaking by
a cruel, crude, common enemy
in the process of frustrating an
Anglo-Saxon union.

To which. Mary replied: "I
would wait forever. Al."
I DO not mean to minimize
the Dolgun story, but this kind
of writing does the book its own
worst disservice.
For Dolgun's "few months"
did in fact last for 24 years,
and "An American Gulag" is in
every way a harrowing account
of one man's travail as a conse-
quence of his father's decision
to move the young Dolgun fam-
ily to Moscow, his father's being
illegally drafted into the Red
Army at the outbreak of World
War II. and his own arrest at
the high point of his romance
with an English lassie three
yean after the war was over
and done with, and he had
grown to manhood and a career
as a budding diplomat.
THE POINT I mean to make
here is that Dolgun's is a per-
sonal tragedy and a personal
story. And the bestiality of the
Soviet political system is his
personal albatross which, fortu-
itously, he came to wear for
almost a quarter of a century.

scriptions of Russian oppres-

sources here say that Sadat's
invitation was an official one.
ACCORDING to most observ-
ers in Salzburg, the first direct
consequence of the Salzburg
meeting will be a stepping up ef
American pressure on Israel.
This pressure will probably be
turned on next week when Pre-
mier Rabin will meet with Ford
in Washington.
These sources indicate that
Ford will try to take on from
where Kissinger left off in
March when he broke off his
ia>t mission. According to these
unconfirmed reports, America
will suggest an Israeli with-
drawal against Egyptian non-
belligerency pledges.
IT IS not known whether Sa-
dat has made any concessions
in Saeburg to enable the in-
terim negotiation to continue.
Ford and Sadat, standing side
by side in pouring rain, gave a
brief press conference here in
the courtyard of the Salzburg
princely palace, the "Residenz."
where they had held their work-
ing sessions.
Ford confirmed they had
taken into consideration "all of
the circumstances that are nec-
essary for any agreement,
whether step-by-step or a com-
prehensive one." He said the
considerations "were on the
broadest basis."
When asked about the pos-
sible influence the letter by the
76 Senators will have on his
final decision, he said that the
reassessment has been conduct-
ed with the help "of a great
manv suggestions from experts
of both political parties in the

For Israel, Arabs
JERUSALEM (JTA) With or without an in-

month in Geneva for a 'Mideast peace conference.'
This will not be the much-talked-of peace confer
ence directed at solving the conflict, but a more modest
one between intellectuals of both sides that will discuss
"mediation techniques with special emphasis on the
Mideastern experience."
AMONG THE Israeli participants at the conference,
organized by the International Peace Academy, will be
Prof. Moshe Mac*, of the Hebrew University; Prof. Shi-
mon Shamir, of Tel Aviv University; Simcha Flapan, the
left-wing journalist and editor of "New Outlook"; Ibra-

and probably Dr. Saul Friedlander, of the Hebrew Uni<

Ford used the opportunity to

agreed on the principle of such
aid but that the terms will be

tiations in Washington.
Diplomatic circles here say
the Ford-Sadat meeting has
fully and clearly demonstrated
America's intention to keep the
initiative in any new peace-mak-
ing move. These circles point
out that neither delegation

We are not even sure why
Dolgun remained in Moscow
after the war and especially
after his family's harrowing ex-
periences there. No depression
forced him to assume a diplo-
matic post in Moscow. Surely,
there must have been others.
BUT WHEN Solzhenitsyn
talks about his arrest, how dif-
ferent it all is:
He writes: "Need it be said
that it (arrest) is a breaking
point in your life ... an un-
assimilable spiritual earth-
quake? .
"The Universe has as many
spiritual centers as tHfte are
living beings in it. Each of us

that Universe is shattered when
they hiss at you: 'You are under

lag as 3 symbol of human deg-
radation and destruction, he
says, "the Gulag country begins
richt next to us."
Precisely here, in these
words, Solzhenitsyn raises the
monstrosity known as Soviet
society to the level of a Kafka
nightmare, and this nightmare
"of closely-fitted, well-disguised
doors" is more Important than
tho physical reality of arrest
The fear guiltless men suffer
of being arrested by they know
not whom for a crime or crimes
they never committedthis is
the stuff of the Soviet prole-
tarian paradise, not the quirk-
i there, however tragic that
destiny may have been.
This. then, is the difference
between the two books. In
Solzhenitsvn, there is the great
investigative reporter with a
flair for the poetic, who takes
us into the hell unique to a
peculiar world, where guiltless
men are punished by anony-
mous gods
IN DOLGUN, there is the
single victim, who with the as-
sist of a professional writer,
Patrick Watson, merely takes us
into what was his own hell,
now ended in Washington,
where he works for HEW.
Does that make Dolgun's
book less worthwhile? Absolute-
ly. Still, anything that confirms
the sanctimonious, self-serving
Soviet beast as a living reality
has merit.
If Dolgun doesn't have the
merit of Solzhenitsyn, that is to
be expected. You will not find
art on a greeting card. But a
truth is there.

subject. Her/1 did not come from an orthodox
home; he did not have a yeshiva training, he
came to an appreciation of anti-Semitism long
before the Dreyfus cise; he knew about Zion-
ism from his youth. He learned about it from
his grandfather who spoke of the Sephardi
rabbi Alkali who preached about a return to
the Holy Land in 1840.
"HERZL HAD a personal need to be a
messiah-savior-political leader," according to
Lowenberg as revealed by Herzl himself. He
wrote plays because he required adulation.
"He was a loner-masterful, narcissistic, in-
dependent. He found his greatest support
from the masses of poor Russian Jews whom
he had formerly ignored. His approaches to
the great European rulers failed to achieve
his goalf but he lit a torch of hope and he
kindled the flame of devotion which brought
to fruition his dreams within the 50 years
that he predicted at the first Zionist Congress
in 1897.
HE WROTE, "I have not made Zionism
poorer but Jewry richer."
Elon reminds us of the words of Pope Pius
X words to Herzl in 1903. "We cannot approve
of the Zionist movement. The Hebrews have
not recognized our Lord, therefore we cannot
recognize the Jewish people."
