JA Women's National Campaign Chairman
To Address Advance Gifts Division
Sylvia Hassenfeld, national
campaign chairman of the Wom-
en's Division of the United Jew-
ish Appeal, will address the
I luncheon of the Advance Gifts
Division (minimum $1,000 con-
tribution) on Wednesday after-
noon, Jan. 21, at Pier 66, Suite
166.
Evelyn Gross, chairman of
[the Advance Gifts Division, ob-
iserved that the fact that Mr?.
IHassenfeld, one of the top wom-
len's leaders in the United
[States, is addressing this group
in our community is due to
recognition by national leaders
of the tremendous growth and
success of the Women's Division
of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
According to Mrs. Gross,
"The Advance Gifts Division
Luncheon has become a major
affair in the calendar of our
Jewish community. Many wom-
en who now occupy important
leadership positions in our com-
munity have come from the
ranks of the Advance Gifts Divi-
sion."
Sylvia Hassenfeld, of Provi-
dence, R.I., has dedicated her
service as chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal National
Women's Division to the crea-
tion of a better life for Israel's
people, and to raising the level
of giving and broadening the
vistas of understanding among
the Jewish women of America.
Toward those ends, she has
been a constant and dynamic
leader of women's missions to
the Jewish past in Poland, rem-
nant Jewish life in Rumania
and the present reality in Is-
rael. She led the first women's
mission ever to visit Auschwitz
and made four trips to Israel in
the first year of her chairman-
ship.
Keenly aware of the import-
ance of early education to the
future of Israel's immigrant
children, she is a sponsor of a
prekindergarten school in Na-
tanya, a project of the UJA's
Israel Education Fund.
A tireless officer of the Na-

Plaza South Plans UJA Lunch
Harry Klinghoffer's business
and main preoccupation used to
be getting the news into peo-
ple's hands. Retired from busi-
ness, although he has remained
board chairman of the Newark
(N.J) News Dealers Supply
Company, he's still getting peo-
ple to stay on top of current
events the events in this case
having to do with Israel.
Klinghoffer is chairman of the
Federation-UJA campaign in
Plaza South, one of the high-
rise oceanfront condominium
apartment buildings on the Gait
Ocean Mile. To make sure that
his fellow Jews in the building
get to know what's really going
on in Israel, the United Nations,
and here in Fort Lauderdale, he
has invited his neighbors and
HARRY KLINGHOFFER
friends to be his guests at a Fed-
eration-UJA luncheon on Sun-
day, Jan. 25, in the Versailles
Room of the Fort Lauderdale
Hilton.
To make doubly sure that his
guests get the Israel story first-
hand, Klinghoffer has worked it
out so that the speaker is a man
just recently arrived from Is-
rael. That man is Henry Levy,
former director of European
operations for United Hias Serv-
ice and former European opera-
tions director of the Joint Dis-
tribution Committee. Levy is
here on a nationwide tour on
behalf of the United Jewish Ap-
peal.

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Latiderdale
Okuii Heads Embassy Towers
UJA-IEF Campaign
Avi Okun is the kind of
man who'd rather walk than
ride, hike than fly, swim than
bathe.
He started out in life as a
chemical engineer and became
the owner and president of a
plastic products research and
development firm.
Avi gets to His place of busi-
ness on a bicycle and finds time
to walk at least eight miles sev-
eral times weekly along the
area's ocean beaches.
Avi's place of business is his
studio. And Avi's "business" is
art. Avi Okun ex-chemist and
ex-industrialist is an artist.
At least one prominent artist
who is also an art teacher has
termed Avi Okun's work so dis-
tinctive "I would recognize it
anywhere, even without a signa-
ture."
Avi's signature is his excep-
tional treatment of theme and
his use of color. Maurice Siev-
ans. who teaches art at Queens
College in New York and whose
own works are on view in
museums here and" abroad,
praises Avi Okun as an "imagi-
national colorist."
Sievans encouraged /hri not
to take art insthieriin But to
continue to paint in his distinc-
tive self-taught style. And that's
what Avi has been doing, ever
since he arrived in Fort Laud-
erdale some two years ago.
In that time his works have
been shown at a number of
major exhibitions and galleries,
among them the Broward Art
Guild, the Pier 66 Gallery and
the gallery of the Fort Lauder-
dale National Bank on East Las
Olas Boulevard1.
Avi came to the attention of
aficionados and fellow artists
because a painting he submitted
in a competition conducted by
the Boca Raton Center of the
Arts. The work, "Street Ballet,"
was selected*, by the judges for
showing at an astractionist ex-
hibition sponsored by IBM.
The Pier 66 GaUnry* where
Okun recently had a one-man
show, has invited him Ur-return
for another. Some of Avi's work
iB on display in the new building
of the Greater Fort Lauderdale
Jewish Federation at NW

A sanroling of these highly
original oife many of them
on Jewish themes shows joy-
ous Chassidim in a dance of

into; the canvas; elders in the
synagogue affixing their tefillin;
several worshipers gossiping
while another shushes them, a
colorful and rhythmic abstract
that cantures the bustle of city
living. The pictures at the Fed-
eration- are for sale.
Avi Okun has one additional
activity and that's champion-
ing the Federation-UJA cam-
paign. He is chairman of the
EmBassy Towers UJA-Israel
Emergency Fund campaign
Taken up as he is with his work,
there's always that extra day-
tima moment or evening that he
gives to the work of raising
funds for Isnael and for the Fed-
eration's social service, youth,
senior citizen and community
relations programs here in Fort
Lauderdale.
Painting secenes of Jewish
life and interpreting the Jewish
ethos orr canvas are only a part
of Okun's commitment to the
principle of Jewish survival, he
says. The other part lies in the
ded, in mirzvoth, in doing the
necessary things that translate
ideas and principles into tan-
gible results and achievements
that safeguard and advance the
'cause of Israel and-the existence
of the Jewish people.
Avi Okun is also a realist. He
knows that not everyone can
be like him or do as he does.
But he's an optimist. He be-
lieves in setting the example.
"If no* everyone," he says,
"then more and more. Thats
what progress is all about: get-
ting more human beings to do
more for each other every
day, all the time."
Avi says his love of working
for UJA and Zionism stems from
his father, who did the same
before him.

Campaign aides to Josef Almogi,

say he is sure to get at least

ist General Council when- the

of Greater Fort Lauderdale will
LEAH HARRIS
hold a minimum S250 contribu-
tion luncheon on Thursday af-
ternoon, Jan. 22, at the Tower
Club in Port Lauderdale, ac-
cording to Susan Segaul, chair-
man, and Faye Geronemus, co-
chairman. Chairmen for the
luncheon are 8heila Grenitz and
Cookie Berman.
According to these Plantation
leaders, there is tremendous
interest this year in the Jewish
Federation-United Jewish Ap-
peal campaign. They stated that
this is due to a realization of
the many human needs of Israel
as well as the necessity of fund-
ing such important community
programs as the Jewish Commu-
nity Center and" the Hebrew Day
School.
Special guest for the luncheon
will be Leah Harris. Having
spent an equal number of years
living in Israel and" the United
States, Leah is in the unique
position of being able to present
both cases with insight, under-
standing and intelligence.
Born and reared in Tel Aviv,
Leah was graduated from Her-
zelia Gymnasium, the first all-
Hebrew high school and one
that is ranked with the top prep
schools in America. Its grad-
uates fill posts in the Knesset,
in Israel's foreign service and
in the groves of academe. She
did advanced studies at the
Teacher's Seminary in Tel Aviv
and returned to- her high school
to teach.
During the War of Indepen-
dence, Leah served in the un-
derground1 army, the Haganah,
where her future husband, a
Bostonian, was also serving.
After the war, and marriage,
Leah continued living in Israel,
raising her three Sabra children.
In 1955 the Harris family came
to this country to live.
A teacher at Temple Israel in
New Rochelle. NY., Leah has
been actively involved in the
UJA Women's Division, for
which she organized the first
group of Israeli women m West-
chester County affiliated to the
UJA.

Moynihan Needed at UN
The expressions of "strong support" by President
Ford and Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger "for the
effective job" being done by Daniel P. Moynihan as the
United States Ambassador to the United Nations came
not a minute too soon.
The outspoken Moynihan was rumored about to re-
sign because of a lack of support from the American
foreign policy establishment. Moynihan was recently
severely castigated by British Ambassador Ivor Rich-
card, an attack that was believed to have had the sup-
port of some people in the State Department.
But Moynihan's resignation could have had dis-
astrous results for American policy, especially in the
Middle East. It would have been seen as a softening of
the American stand against the resolution branding
Zionism as racist and against the pro-Palestine Libera-
tion Organization resolutions, both of which were adopt-
ed by the UN General Assembly.
it tt
// the Shoe Fits ..
Moynihan has been criticized for "undiplomatic"
language in the UN. But neither the Communist bloc
nor the Arab nations have ever been noted for diplo-
matic niceties.
The American Ambassador has been saying some
things that needed saying. Who can fault him for call-
ing Uganda's Idi Amin a "racist murderer"? While he
may have overdone it by including the Organization
of African Unity in his attack, it is certainly ludicrous
that this can be used by some African countries as their
reason for voting in favor of the anti-Zionist resolution
Israeli leaders have long argued that the attack
on Israel is the first step of an attack on the West it-
self. Moynihan has said that the democratic countries
are under attack and has defended Israel as an island
of democracy in a sea of despotism.
If Moynihan's outspoken approach at the UN is
heard by the Third World countries they must stop al-
lowing themselves to be used for propaganda and be-
gin to deal with their real problems.
A Nice Place to Visit
"If the Egyptian Minister of Tourism will recom-
mend the holy places in Israel, I will recommend the
Pyramids." These remarks by Israeli Tourism Minister
Moshe Kol at a recent press conference were made
only half in jest. The Israeli official believes that if
there were a free exchange of tourists throughout the
Middle East it would go along way to bringing peace
between Israel and the Arab states.
Nevertheless, an estimated 135,000 to 140,000
Arabs from every Arab state will have visited Israel
this year. The Israeli government believes that the "open
bridges" policy is important because it allows Arabs
to see the real Israel other than the country depicted
by Arab hate propaganda.
Kol would also like to see Arab tourists come not
only across the Jordan River bridges but also across
the Suez Canal. Until then, Israel is intent on encour-
aging tourists from outside the Middle East and has
set a goal of one million for 1976. The record high so
far is 726,000 tourists in 1972.
But Kol has stressed that the million figure will
not be reached unless American tourism, which reached
200,000 this year is doubled. Tourism from the U.S. was
the only one to decline in 1975.
t? it -Cr
Tourism Proves Solidarity
Kol and other Israeli officials feel that more Jews
will visit Israel next year to show their solidarity with
the Jewish State in the wake of the anti-Zionist and
other anti-Israeli resolutions adopted by the United
Nations General Assembly. The recent Jerusalem Con-
ference of Jewish Solidarity urged increased tourism
to Israel and was immediately answered with the an-
nouncement that several American Jewish organizations
will hold their meetings next year in Jerusalem.
The Israel Ministry of Tourism is also making a con-
certed effort to have more American Christians visit
Israel to see their holy places. The more of all kinds,
the better.
Columnist as a Candidate
By MAX LERNER
Lot Angeles Times Sydicate
A friend called me with a
seductive suggestion. There are
so many candidates now for the
Democratic nomination for sen-
ator from New York, he said,
that it might be an idea for me
to add my own name. The more
names the merrier was the way
he put it not very flattering
but well meant.
Along with every other prob-
lem age, money, competition,
voters the crucial difficulty
was time. Even now, J told my
friend, I scarcely answer my
mail. What would I do. with the
avalanche of Senate mail?
HIS ANSWER was deflating:
If I could cut down on my long-
winded speeches, I could save
rimr for everything. I thought
of the story of one of Hubert
Humphrey's fellow senators
who, on Hubert's birthday, sent
him not a watch but a calendar.

We are a society of clock-
watchers, says Daniel Bell. Time
has become our most important
commodity. A friend once told
me about a man called Lakein
who makes a profession out of

had helped many busy execu-
tives and might help me He
would find out what my first
priorities were and my second
priorities and my third, ad in-
finitum, and structure my avail-
able time around them.
I WAS intrigued. Then I re-
called that I'm not a busy execu-
tive. I'm just a writer who lets
time drift through his fingers as
he dreams of writing deathless
prose. Besides, I don't have any
first, second and third priorities
All I have are first priorities.
and none of them gets done
No one can help me except my-
self, and how frail a reed I am.
The only things that avail me
at all are my deadlines. When
you have a deadline for getting
your column in, you get it in.
When you have a deadline for
meeting a class or a seminar,
for getting to an interview, for
getting to a platform when an
audience is wafting, you do it.
I THANK every benign di-
vinity for inventing the dead-
line, by which the drifters and
dreamers are forced to keep
their indolence in check. It is
the sonnet form that gives the
poetry of our lives some discip-
line.. .
But it would be the dreariest
kind of world if we were only
clock-watchers, and if the
poetry and dreaming were not
there.

British Chief Rahhi Is
'Hopefur About Soviet Jewry
By MARK SIEGAL
LONDON (JTA) Chief Rabbi of the British Com-
monwealth Immanuel Jakobovits said on Dec. 25 that his
nine-day visit to the Soviet Union, from which he has just
returned, gave him "reason to be hopeful" about the situa-
tion of Soviet Jewry and taught him that "the circumstances
of Soviet Jewry ... are much more complex than the sim-
plistic view taken by so many here."
4. s 3SVSSS rsna-s sss, s
procedure and criteria for is-
suing visas. Jakobovits said,
"They gave us reason to be
hopeful ... We tried to bring
home to them that if they re-
move the cause of complaints,
they will find the Jewish world
responsive."
Jakobovits said, "I am not an
expert after nine days, and I
only met 1,000 out of millions of
Jews, but the situation is more
complex and the dimensions
more acute than one imagines."
THE HARROWING aspects of
his tour were on his visits to
Babi Yar, site of the Nazi mas-
sacre of Kiev Jewry in World
War II, and to the monument
in Leningrad to the 680.000 per-
sons who died of starvation in
that city during the German
siege. "One realizes the mas-
sive role played by the Russians
in defeating Nazism, one per-
ceives anew that the Russians
and the Jews suffered more
than any other peoples from
the Nazis," Jakobovits said.
He described bis Sabbath at
the Moscow Synagogue, where
the worshipers included promi-
nent Jewish activists, including
Prof. Alexander Lerner. The
Chief Rabbi also addressed a
scientific seminar for dismissed
Jewish scientists at the home
of Prof. Mark Azbel in Moscow.
He said they told him, "We are
being scientifically killed. This
is death for us. All contacts
with the outside world are life-
giving."
Jakobovits said he gained the
impression that his visit was
momentous occasion for the
Jewish scientists who were
stripped of their professional
posts after applying for exit
visas.
Agency the Chief Rabbi said,
"There is a need for thorough
and careful reappraisal of attit-
udes and priorities."
He spoke of his meetings with
Soviet officials and various
ministries and of his visits to the
three largest Jewish commu-
nities in the USSR Moscow,
Leningrad and Kiev. "I was
tremendously uplifted by their
struggle to preserve Yiddishkeit
which is an inspiration to the
world," he said.
Jakobovits was invited to the
Soviet Union by the leader of
the Jewish congregation in Mos-
cow. He was accompanied by
Moshe Davis, director of the
Chief Rabbi's Office in London.
JAKOBOVITS was the first
spiritual leader of a Western
Jewish community to visit the
USSR in an official capacity. He
described his experience as of greater fort lauderdale

Morton Orders End to Distribution
Of Trade Tenders with Boycott Requests
("United States Department of Commerce News,"
Washington, D.C., November 28, 1975)
Secretary of Commerce Ro-
gers C. B. Morton has ordered
that, effective Dec. 1. the De-
partment of Commerce will no
longer disseminate foreign-trade
opportunities or tenders con-
taining boycott conditions or
based on documents containing
such provisions.
Commercial documents orig-
inating from certain Arab na-
tions usually contain restrictive
clauses designed to carry out a
secondary boycott against the
State of Israel.
Secretary Morton ordered the
(Department's secretarial offi-
cers and heads of bureaus and
offices handling such docu-
ments to issue appropriate di-
rectives to assure full com-
pliance with this policy by Dec.
1.
Morton said the ban is being
undertaken with the coopera-
tion and concurrence of the De-
partment of State. He added,
"The Department of State has
informed us that it is instructing
all Foreign Service posts hence-
forth not- to forward any docu-
ments or any iufwmatian on
trade opportunities obtained
from documents or other mate-
rial* which are knows to con-
tain boycott pioviaio.
Tins action is still another
clear demonstration of the Ad-
ministration's opposition to re-
strictive trade practices and
boycotts of countries friendly to
the United 9tstes," the Secre-
tary said.
Morton noted that on Nov. 21
the Department's Export Ad-
ministration Regulations were
revised to prohibit U.S. export-

of Israel's survival was sounded
this week at a pness conference

"The democratic values that
have sustained our struggle in
America are also the source sf
our admiration for Israel and
her impressive social achieve-
ments.
"No nation is without imper-
fections. But Israel's are far Vt-
weighted by the freedom of her
democratic society.
"Only in Israel, among the
nations of the Middle East, are
political freedoms and civil
liberties secure.
"Together with other Amer-
icans, we enthusiastically join
in reaffirming the rights of Is-
rael to exist as a sovereign
state."
Rustin will serve as director
of BASIC, which was formed at
the request of A. Philip Ran-
dolph, who will serve as chair-
man.

U.S. citizens or companies on
the basis of race, color, religion,

Rabbi Kahane
In New Trial
By BEN GALLOB
NEW YORK (JTA) Rab-
bi Meir Kahane was transfer-
red an Nov. 27 to the federal
minim urn security prison at
AHenwood. Pa., after a Federal
Circuit Court of Appeals ruling
that he was entitled te kosher
food as a federal prison in-
mate.
Barry Slotnick, attorney for
the founder of the Jewish De-
fense League, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that it was
his understanding that, under
the agreement by the U.S. gov-
ernment to comply with the
ruling, all Jewish prisoners un-
der federal detention request-
ing kosher food would here-
after be provided such a diet
which wiU include rabbirrically-
certified kosher meat and fowl.
FEDERAL JUDGE Jack Wcin
stain, -who sentenced Kahane
last March to a year in prison
for parole violation, ordered
Kahane to serve his term at
the AHenwood facility and to
receive kosher food there. U.S.
government attorneys challeng-
ed the kosher food order, which
was upheld by a lower court.
While the appeals court or-
der said only that Kahane was
entitled to nutritionally-balanc-
ed kosher meals, which he is
getting by restricting his diet
at the AHenwood facility to
vegetables, fruits and such fish
as tuna, Slotnick said Kaham
would start getting kosher meat
meals probably next week.
Kahane was given permission
to leave the facility daily to go
to kosher restaurants and to
synagogue for worship. Slotnick
said that, with time off for
good behavior, Kahane would
probably complete His sentence
bv the end of January.

conditions and at a time when
most other campaigns were suf-
fering setbacks. Our record is
thus its own fine tribute to all

tipated," Goodman said.
"In keeping with our record
and the spirit that made it pos-
sible and to afford the syna-

it," he says, "every time a group
of Jews comes together for Fed-'
eration-UJA, ifs an opportunity
to show their revulsion at the
UN's vote equating Zionism
with racism.
That's what we're going to
do on Jan. 25. We're going to
hold a vote of our own. We're
going to show- that we're hu-
manitarian, and we're going to
do it in philanthropic terms. Is-
rael will benefit. Jews in dis-
tress in other parts of the world
will benefit. Many thousands of
Jews served by the Jewish Fed-
eration of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale will benefit. And so will
peoples everywhere.
"Every time we Jews come
together to support and uphold
Israel,'' Klinghoffer continues,
"we're setting another example
of generosity that other peo-
ples can adopt as a standard of
decency for themselves. Our
humanity cannot but set into
bold relief the sheer rascality
of the Soviet and Arab diplomats
and their mean followers in the
UN."
Klinghoffer not only feels
strongly about Israel and Jews
in need elsewhere in the world;
he feels keenly about Judaism
itself. He helped bring four
synagogues into existence and
was the first president of one,

Hermann Stresses 1976 As
Israel's "Year of Energy'
In 1976 the North Bfoward
Israel B6nd Organization is em-
phasizing energy, oil explora-
tion, electfica* power andl ex-
pansion programs. This wa an-
nounced by Robert M. Her-
mann, chairman, board of gov-
ernors. North Broward CoOnty,
for State of Israel Bonds.
One of the most important
aspects of this year's campaign,
he declared, wiH be to finance
Israel's search for new sources
of energy. "Israel Bonds funds
will be utilized to help meat Is-
raeli essential energy needs to
replace the oil from the Abu
Rudeis oil fields, which have
been returned to Egypt as a re-
sult of the interim Sinai disen-
gagement agreement," said! Her-
mann.
One of the planned etergy
projects is an 800-meggwatt
nuclear energy installation aouth
of Ashdod including a four-year
__oil exploration program requir-
ing an investment of $200 mil-
lion. Other plans include the
construction of an electric pow-
er station, the development of
large-scale solar-energy units
for commercial use and the es-
tablishment of hydreeletcrie

Hermann underscored the
necesaity for increasing Israel's
industrial output for export to
enable the country to realize the
opportunities for increased ex-
port trade with Europe follow-
ing iW 1975 agreement with the
Common Market. Under the
terms of the agreement, he said,
Israel will be allowed to sell
products to Common Market
nations duty-free beginning in
1977. Because the present short-
age of funds for Israel's eco-
nomic development win not be
met by U.S. fiancial aid ear-
marked largely for defense, Is-
rael needs Bonda help.

Dr. K. Supports
Moynilmn at UN
By JOSEPH POI.AKOFF
WASHINGTON (JTA)
President Ford and Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger "ex-
pressed strong support for the
effective job" Ambassador
Daniel P. Moynihan has been
doing representing the United
States at the United Nations"
and have "encouraged" him "to
continue to speak out candidly
and forcefully on major issues
coming before the UN," the
White House has said.
The statement was read to
reporters by White House Press
Secretary Ron Nessen following
a meeting between Moynihan
and President Ford who were
joined for about ten minutes by
Secretary Kissinger.
THE STRONG endorsement of
Moynihan by the President and
Secretary of State put to rest
rumors that the administration
was unhappy with American
UN envoy's outspokeness in the
General Assembly, especially on
Middle East issues and that
Moynihan intended to resign.
Those rumors came to a head
last week when the British UN
representative, Ivor Richard,
sharply criticized the American
delegate, without mentioning
him by name, for allegedly us-
ing the UN as a "confrontation-
al area" to assail countries
whose political systems or
ideologies he disliked.
Moynihan was one of the
most vociferous critics of the
Third World countries that
voted for or abstained on the
anti-Zionist resolution adopted
by the General Assembly Nov.
10.
EARLIER, Moynihan called
President Idi Amin of Uganda
a "racist murderer" on the UN
floor after Amin, who is cur-
rent chairman of the organiza-
tion for African Unity (OAU),
Urged the extinction of Israel.
Richard's attack on Moynihan
was believed in some quarters
to hare been approved, if not
inspired, by State Department
elements believed anxious to
have Moynihan resign after less
than five months in office.
THERE WERE reports that
the 48-year-old former Ambas-
sador to India and former Harv-
ard professor was about to sub-
mit his resignation.
Nessen would not say what
prompted the president's meet-
ing with Moynihan except that
it was by mutual agreement. He
did say there was "no commu-
nication" from Moynihan to the
President. The UN envoy was
not accompanied by the other
members of the U.S.
members of the U.S. UN mis-
sion when he visited the White
House.

WITH KOAKD TO TNI PMSTINIAN PftOBUM
Anti-Semitism
Seen Growing
Cohesive Policy Sought In Argentina
By GIL SEDAN and YITZHAK SHARGIL
JERUSALEM (JTA) Israeli leaders in and out
of the government are trying to develop a cohesive national
policy with regard to the Palestinian problem, now looming
as the major issue in Middle East peace negotiations, and
how to deal with the increasingly politicized Arab minority
inside Israel
The Cabinet's formula of June, 1974, stating that the
Palestinian question can be dealt with only within the
framework of peace negotiations with Jordan is generally
accepted and. there seems to be a growing consensus that
Israel must recognize some form of national identity for
the Palestinians.
But the framework of Pales-
tinian national expression and
how far Israel can safely go in
accepting it remains a matter
of serious debate. Foreign Min-
ister Yigal Allon stated Israel's
dilemma concisely, at a Labor
Party meeting at Btit Berl on
Dec. 28, when he said, "If we
return all territory, we'll be
left without defensible borders;
if we keep them all, the result
will be a bi-national state."
Allon, however, ruled out a
Palestinian state between Is-
rael and Jordan which, he said,
could turn out to be a PLO
state. He reiterated that the
Palestinian problem must be
solved in the Jordanian con-
text and said Israel would nev-
er sign a peace agreement with
Jordan unless it contained a
solution of the Palestinian
question.
Solution Steps Outlined
Former Foreign Minister
Abba Eban, who addressed the
American Professors for Peace
in the Middle East Thursday
night, agreed that a Palestinian
solution should be sought in
negotiations with Jordan or
Lebanon or both. But he advo-
cated Israel's withdrawal from
most of the Arab territories it
occupied in the Six-Day War
with only slight changes in the
pre-June, 1967, map which
would take into account human
and population considerations
rather than stretches of land.
I Eban said that in exchange
for a genuine peace pact, Israel
should be ready to give up most
of the Golan Heights, part of
the West Bank, excluding East
Jerusalem, part of the Jordan
Valley and most of Sinai up to
the Raffah salient. According
to Eban, the "one-sided" ap-
proach of Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissing :r has "run
out of gas." He said the time
has come for a mutual Israeli-
American position opposed to
the byi ian-So\ iet attitude.
Eban warned that Israel must
embark on a diplomatic off n-
sive aimed at the Geneva
Conference, wncre an o\erall
settlement with the Arabs would
have to be worked out. Kissin-
ger's present piecemeal ap-
proach only weakens Israel, he
said.
ILP's Views Stated
The Independent Liberal Par-
ty, a paitner in Premier Yitz-
hak Rabin's coalition govern-
ment, approved a resolution at
a party executr e meting in
Tel Aviv, calling on the govern-
ment to recognize me ngnts of
Palestinians on the West Bank
to national self-determination.
ILP leader Moshe Kol, Minister
of Tourism in Rabin's Cabinet,
proposed round-table talks be-
tween Israel, Jordan and the
Palestinians of the West Bank.
The resolution made it clear
that the objective of such talks
should be a solution involving
territory on both banks of the
Jordan and that the negotiat-
ing partners, in addition to Jor-
dan, should be any recognized
Palestinian leadership that ac-
cepts the existence of Israel.
Another section of the resolu-
tion urged some type of con-
federation between Israel and
Jordan.
Rnles Out Talks With PLO
Defense Minister Shimon Pe-
res has also been speaking of
late of offering extensive au-
tonomy to West Bank Arabs.
But in an interview published
in the Paris newspaper France-
Soir, Peres ruled out Israeli ne-
gotiations with the PLO under
any circumstances.
He maintained that even if
PLO chieftain Yassir Arafat
recognized Israel and agreed to
negoUale wun it uU flCUjj a.o-
fat was in no position to speak
in the name of the PLO, which,
according tj Peres, embraces
extremist terrorist groups head-
ed by George Habash, aif Ha-
wuime anj /\hmed Jibril who
demand nothing less than the
dismemberment of Israel. "We
cannot enter into relations with
an organization whose aim is
still the liquidation of the Jew-
ish State," Peres said.
Peres reiterated his earlier
proposals to place local govern-
ment administration on the
West Bank and Gaza Strip in
the hanus ot locai Arab lead-
ers el;cted by the population
of those areas. He even envis-
aged a "European formula"
embracing a "common market"
and open frontiers between Is-
rael and a semi-autonomous
West Bank ani Gaca Ctrip.
But he adamantly ruled out
a Palestinian national state be-
tween Israel and Jordan which,
he claimed, would be open to
Soviet influence close to the

Cubans
Out of
Syria
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Cuban armored brigade that had
been stationed in Syria since the
end of the 1973 Yom Kippur
War returned to Cuba a few
weeks ago, it was revealed here.
The only foreign troops now
in Syria are members of an in-
fantry brigade from Saudi
Arabia.
The Cuban brigade was sent
to Syria to man the new Rus-
sian T-62 tanks that the Syrians
were getting from the Soviet
Union after the war. Syria did
not have any crews for the
tanks because of the loss of
hundreds of tank crews during
the war.
In addition to helping the
Syrians, the Cuban government
wanted its soldiers to gain some
combat experience. The Cubans
took part in clashes against the
Israelis on the Golan Heights
during the war of attrition that
Syria waged from January to
June, 1974.
Cuban troops have been re-
ported fighting recently with
the Soviet-backed Popular Move-
ment for the Liberation of An-
gola.

WHEN YOU
Ifyou are one of the thousands
of Jews who came to Florida
to live but still own a cemetery
plot up north, your death could
prove very costly to your
survivors.
Consider the cost of ship-
ping the casket and remains
back. Consider the long
distance phone calls. Consider
that one or more family
members will fly back for the
funeral. The cost of accom-
modations while they are
there. .
Your inexpensive burial
plot could become very
expensive.
There is a much more
sensible alternative.
You could buy, outright, a
plot at Lakeside Memorial
Park for a mere $250.00.
This is what you will get
for that $250.00:
1. A beautifully serene
memorial garden setting with
an eight acre reflecting lake.
Most northern cemeteries
are old and depressingly
unattractive.
2. Perpetual care at no
extra cost. Practically all
northern cemeteries charge
an annual fee for care. In a
few years, the cost of this care
could exceed the price of a new
plot at Lakeside.
3. A place your family,

Israel Still Hedging on Jan. 12 Debate
By G/L SED/.iV
JERUSALEM (JTA) Israel has said that it will
continue to respect the presence of the United Nations Dis-
engagement Ot server Force (UNDOF) on the Golan Heights
tut would not cooperate with the Security Council's Middle
East debate scheduled to begin next Jan. 12.
The government's position was stated in a communique
issued following an extraordinary six-and-a-half-hour Cab-
inet session.
IT WAS convened to consider
the vote by the Security Coun-
cil to extend the UNDOF man-
date for six months while at
fhe same time acquiescing to
Syria's demand for a dsbate
on the Palestinian issue in
which the Palestine Liberation
Organization would be invited
to participate
The communique said the
gove: nment negated the linkage
between the renewal of the UN-
DaF mandate and "foreign ele-
i] nts" incorporated into that
decision.
The Cabinet s statement was,
in effect, a reiteration of Israel's
position that the UNDOF man-
date is an integral part of the
1974 Israeli'Syiian disengage-
ment accord and is completely
separate from any other mat-
ters including debate on the
Palestinian issue.
THE COMMUNIQUE said Is-
rael would continue to honor
the existence of UNDOF on the
basis of t'le 1974 separation of
forces agreement which was
still valid.
It stressed that the latter
agreement included the com-
mitment to avoid terrorist ac-
tions across the disengagement
lines and declared that Israel
held Syria responsible for im-
plementation of the agreement
in all of its parts.
The communique served no-
tice that Israel would take nec-
essary security measures along
its northern 'border and, in that
Rabin: "Quit Criticizing or Resign"
JERUSALEM (WNS) Premier Yitzhak Rabin has
told his Cabinet ministers either to stop publicly criticizing
government policy or to resign. The statement made at a
Cabinet meeting, which was revealed in the press, was aeen
as primarily addressed to Foreign Minister Yigal Allon, who
has recently criticized the government's Palestinian policy.
Allon seems to be leaning to-
ward the proposal by former
Communications Minister Aha-
ron Yariv and Health Minister
Victor Shemtov of Mapam that
Israel should talk to any Pales-
tinian group that recognizes the
Jewish State and desists from
terror. Rabin firmly opposes
this formula, although private-
ly he has said that he could
envision a Palestinian state on
the West Bank under moderate
Palestinian leadership. Later the
Prime Minister's Office denied
Rabin's warning was aimed pri-
marily at Allon.
Meanwhile, Prof. Yehoshafat
Harkabi. one of the leading
"hawks" in the Israeli academic
community, has urged Israel to
negotiate with any Palestinian
group, including the Palestine
Liberation Organization, that re-
nounces terrorism and accepts
the existence of Israel.
HARKABI, an authority on
international relations, a former
chief o' army intelligence and
until rt-ently an advisor to De-
fense Minister Shimon Peres, in
a telephone radio interview
from the United States, ques-
tioned the official Israeli view
that the establishment of a West
Bank Palestinian state would
threaten Israel and advance So-
viet penetration in the Middle
East.
Harkabi said if Israel offered
to negotiate with the PLO, the
PLO would be faced with the
choice of abandoning its "co-
venant" for the dismemberment
of Israel or lose the image of
"moderation" it has managed to
cultivate at internatuhial fo-
rums.
Harkabi was bitterly attacked
by Likud, which noted that
simiar remarks were made re-
cently in the Knesset by Prof.
Shlomo Abineri of the Hebrew
Sabotage Courses in Prison
TEL AVTV (JTA) Po-
lice Commissioner Aryeh Nir
has admitted that terrorist in-
mates in the Ramleh Central
Prison have been conducting
courses on sabotage and terror-
ists acts for fellow-inmates in-
side the prison walls.
The courses, which involved
about 20 prisoners, some of
whom were forced to partici-
pate, according to Nir, included
written instructions on how to
prepare explosive charges, how
to make home-made bombs,
how to plant explosives on
roads, and lists of chemicals
that could be purchased and
used to produce explosives.
THE COURSES were con-
ducted with two improvised,
handwritten "textbooks" which
contained detailed diagrams
and illustrations. They were
prepared by inmates who were
accomplished sappers, the pris-
on commissioner said.
The clandestine classes in le-
thal devices were uncovered
after one prisoner was stabbed
and seriously wounded during
a movie show at the prison.
The incident led to a search
of the cells which uncovered 10
improvised knives made from
ground-down strips, including a
spoon handle, three improvised
brass knuckles, one of them
made from a bent fork, two in-
struction books and $90 in trav-
elers checks, Nir said.
SECURITY SOURCES noted
that increased terrorist activi-
ties in the administered terri-
tories was reflected in a num-
ber of cases now before mili-
tary tribunals.
Forty-four young Arabs from
Nablus are facing charges of
organizing terorist cells in the
Samaria district of the West
Bank. The accused, members of
four different cells, were ap-
prehended before they could
carry out any acts of sabotage.
In Gaza, six terrorists and
the night watchman at a citrus
packaging plant owned by an
Israeli, Joseph Kami, have been
charged by a military tribunal
with setting fire to the plant
which employed local Arabs.
The watchman was an accom-
plice, possibly under duress,
because it was he who called the
tire brigade alter the terrorists
fled the scene.
ANOTHER SIX terrorists,
four of them brothers, are fac-
ing a military tribunal in con-
nection with an elaborate plan
to take over an Israeli textile
plant where three of the broth-
ers were employed.
According to the charges,
they planned to murder fellow
employees, take hostages and
threaten to blow up the plant
unless certain demands were
met.
The ring leader was identi-
fied as Mouhammed El Alouni,
22, who left Gaza to study in
Lebanon last-year and was re-
cruited by the Popular Front
for the Liberation of Palestine
and trained in terrorist tcja
arrested before they were able
to nut their plan into effect

ISRAEL WARNED the Se-

cit invitation to the PLO to
participate in the Jan. 12 de-
bate could jeopardize peace ef-
forts in the Middle East. Israel
stated that it continues to base

IT WAS learned, however,
that differences of opinion
were expressed by various
ministers during the lengthy
debate. Five dove-ish ministers
-two from Mapam, two from
the Independent Liberal Party

are known to have suggested
that Israel modify its position
with regard to the Palestinians
by stating its readiness to nego-

At the same time, hawk-ish

friends and greet old ones at
JCC's college student mixer on
Dec. 22 in the Jean Scene
Lounge.
"Once you've been away to
college, you're really out of cir-
culation when you return for
the holidays," said one attrac-
tive out-of-towner. "It's nice to
have something like this mixer
to come to."
The mixer gave the young
people a chance to find each
other and enjoy themselves in
a relaxed atmosphere. H was a
relatively quiet, low-key mixer
where a sense of belonging
seemed to pervade. The stu-
dents played ping-pong and
other table games, watched tele-
vision, danced, and "mixed"
casually. Anyone just walking
into the Jean Scene Lounge
would have assumed that they
had all been coming to the place
together for years. And we
hope they will.

The Real Challenge To
Synagogue Leadership

By RABBI S. FRIEDMAN
Executive Director
Southeast Region
United Synagogue of America
South Florida probably repre-
sents the greatest challenge to
synagogue leadership in many
a decade. Whereas other areas
of our country are witnessing a
diminution of the Jewish pop-
ulation and synagogue affilia-
tion, the very reverse is true of
this area in which we reside.
Yet the religious leadership,
both rabbinic and lay, is not
meeting the challenge of this
growth and perhans in some
ways is hostile to it.
What is called for, it seems
to me, are new moaes of think-
ing and new approaches toward
reaching the multitudes of un-
affiliated that are moving into
South Florida.
In the less than two years
that I have been in this com-
munity, the area of greatest
controversy has been the con-
dominium services which occur
during the High Holidays. In my
opinion, dubbing these services
as "mushroom synagogues" and
making pronouncements and
resolutions negating their exist-
ence has been a disservice to
the total Jewish community, to
the synagogues, and to the rab-
bis themselves.
First, let me define the
"mushroom synagogue'--us it
was known up north. Often an
itinerant "raobi" and/or small
group of "promoters" would
rent a theater or a hall and ad-
vertise in the newspaper and
through posters and signs dis-
tributed in stores and billboards
that High Holiday services were
being held, with a world-
renowned cantor.
Inexpensive tickets were sold
to anyone interested. Equally
negative aspersions were cast at
those who frequented hotels in
the "borscht belt" on the High
Holidays. The participants and
hotel owners were similarly
chastised, although these places
were not labeled "mushroom"
because they were of a more
permanent structure.
THE PHENOMENON of con-
dominium services in South
Florida is that they are not
"mushroom" and certainly not
'borscht belt" hotel services. It
is an injustice to these groups
to label them as pariahs and to
exclude them from the religious
community. Our ostracizing
them has not stemmed their
growth and may even have re-
sulted in their low standards in
the use of religious personnel
and a minimal financial struc-
ture.
I am not certain that my
proposals or answers are of the
best, but I am convinced that' the
present procedure of repudia-
tion urying our heads in the
sands of the beach and kicking
our heels, no matter how voci-
ferously has not been a pro-
ductive approach. It has been of
no assistance to the established
congregations, and in one sense
the condominium synagogues
have been "mushrooming" in
terms of growth .iom year to
year.
To better deal with this sub-
ject, I divide it into two areas.
One, the condominiums which
have weekly and daily minyans
through most of the year in ad-
dition to the High Hoidays
(often without benefit of cler-
gy). These are increasing in
number and may be found in
Century Village, Deerfield
Beach; Hawaiian Gardens, Fort
Lauderdale; Kinqs Point, Delray
Beach and many in Miami
Beach.
For the most part they meet
in the community rooms within
their complexes and often in the
large recreation hall for the
High Holidays. These are viable
groups with a dues structure,
an organization, legally char-
tered, and are meeting the
needs of their particular group.
Tho" often comnete with the
multifaceted condominium so-
cial and cultural programs of-
fered to the residents, but man-
age to hold their own.
THE PARTICIPANTS are al-
most always retirees who have
had some peripheral involve-
ment in synagogue life in their
previous communities. Very few
were heavily involved with pre-
vious synagogue- leadership
roles. To a great extent those
who were "shul-goers" joined
synagogues when they settled
here and are not, as a rule, in-
volved in the condominium
group. They still prefer the at-
mosphere of a synagogue sanc-
tuary, the chanting of a melodi-
ous chazzan, and the Torah of
a rabbinic sermon.
It is my contention that we
should "reach out" to these all-
year-round condominium syna-
gogues with the totality of our
synagogue staff and program.
There is not a set formula of
establishing this relationship,
but I might suggest the follow-
ing:
Satellite: Develop a legal
and ongoing relationship with
the condominium synagogue.
The individuals would pay a
specially designated member-
ship fee similar to those offered
to "snowbirds" (call them
"satellites"). These members
would have certain limited
privileges within the congrega-
tion which might include the
services of the rabbi, syna-
gogue facilities and programs,
i.e., hospital visits, weddings,
funerals, adult education, ritual
materials and similar items. The
expertise of the congregation
would be offered to the satellite
group and, more importantly,
give it an identity beyond itself.
Regional Affiliation: Con-
sider the condominium syna-
gogue as an independent entity
which would affiliate with one
of the national bodies and be
served as an affiliate. However,
appropriate kinds of program
services should be devised for
this specialized group. Among
those to be considered might
be lecture series, classes, but
trips to areas of Jewish inter-
est
By far. the most controversial
and debatable area is the con-
dominiums that conduct High
Holiday services only. These
were alluded to earlier as being
dubbed "mushroom" syna-
gogues. In almost all cases these
services are held within a par-
ticular complex and are used,
basically, for the residents of
that complex. The need to serv-
ice these groups has been vehe-
mently opposed by the estab-
lished congregations; they
"would have deleterious effects
upon an existing congregation"
was the reaction of one syna-
gogue.
Others insist that their exist-
ence should not be acknowl-
edged. Under any circum-
stances, they must not be given
any help. Rabbis are forbidden
to assist them in any way. In
reality, this approach has not
stemmed the tide of these
groups but, as stated earlier,
they increase each year. Some
of the results of this approach
have been the use of "charla-
tan" rabbis, of a non-religious
experience, of minimal charge
for seats, ot a scramble for
Sifrei Torah and other practices
which do not enhance the spirit-
uality of the High Holiday ob-
servance.
My experience in dealing with
these people is that they are not
"cheap chiselers" or "hippo-
crites," but to a great extent are
sincerely interested in having a
religious service that will meet
their needs. Many of them are
retirees who never were in-
volved in synagogue life other
than attending a High Holiday
service. They feel comfortable
in having a more intimate serv-
ice irrthin the environs of their'
"hOme" with their friends and'
neighbors.
They are sincere in their ef-
forts and feel that they are con-
tributing to the spiritual needs
of their own community. Some
have been conducting services
for as much as ten consecutive
years, but they need direction
and guidance from the estab-
lished synagogue community. I
firmly believe that we must
change direction and work posi-
tively with these groups for the
benefit of both the congrega-
tions and the condominiums.
Again, there are many different
avenues of dealing with this
challenge. Permit me to share
with you some ideas on this
matter.
Satellite Services: Congre-
gations "reach out" to condo-
miniums in their geographic
vicinity and agree to promote,
conduct and be totally respon-
sible for High Holiday services.
A minimal charge for seats
should be established which
would be equitable to the resi-
dents and be of financial bene-
fit to the congregation. This
relationship should be sustained
by the synagogue through pe-
riodic programming for the
condominium during the year.
In addition, residents should be
encouraged to become members
by advising them that the costs
of the High Holiday seats could
be credited at any time toward
the membership fee, should
they choose to become members
at a later date.
Independent Services: In
areas where there is more than
one established congregation or
no congregation in the "imme-
diate vicinity," the regional of-
fice should service the condo-
minium High Holiday group.
They should advise them as to
the manner of conducting such
a service, the sources for the
purchase and /or rental of Mah-
zorim, Talleisim, Sifrei Torah
and other ritual items. They
should recommend religious
personnel, i.e., rabbi, cantor,
etc., who are qualified and bona
fide and able to provide a mean-
ingful religious experience.
An established minimal cost
for holiday seats should be set
which would meet the general
standards of the community.
Criteria for the distribution of
surplus funds (condominiums
are forbidden to make any pro-
fit) should be determined be-
forehand, assuring the contribu-
tions to Israel and for the en-
hancement of the Jewish religi-
ous community. The ia.ter could
be in the form of donations to
area synagogues and to the Re-
gional coffers for use of the
local Jewish religious commu-1
nity.
In conclusion, may I urge
rabbinic and lay leadership-
our congregations to seriousi)
consider the above remarks and'
not peremptorily dismiss them.
Many of us are harboring the
streotyped myths about the na-
ture of the South Florida Jew-
ish community in general and
the condominium Jewish resi-
dents in particular. What is call-
ed for are innovative and crea-
tie ideas to meet a pressing and
imperative situation. The chal-
lenge to synagogue leadership la
to creats an atmosphere which
will vitalize religious life in
South Florida for all its Jewish
members.
Judah P. Benjamin
By RABBI S. LISTFIELD
Temple Sinai, Hollywood
Rothschild spoke of Judah P.
Benjamin as "perhaps the great-
est mind" on the American con-
tinent Indeed, the boy who
came to the United States as a
poor immigrant used his bril-
liance and charm to become a
wealthy attorney and an in-
fluential and articulate political
leader.
Judah Philip Benjamin was
born a British subject in St.
Croix, Virgin Islands, in 1811.
Benjamin's family moved to
South Carolina, and in 1828 the
young Judah set out for the
booming port of New Orleans to
stydy law.
" 'While in New^Tjrieans. Ben-
'' jfirriin entered into an unsuc-
cessful marriage with a Cath-
olic girl. After a few years his
wife left him to live in Paris,
while Benjamin devoted himself
to law and politics.
HE BECAME known as an
extremely capable lawyer, and
before long he was admitted to
practice before the Supreme
Court. In fact, he turned down
a nomination to the Court in
1853 in order to continue his
very successful law practice.
Benjamin was elected to the
United States Senate from
Louisiana, the second Jew ever
to become a Senator. When
Louisiana seceded from the
Union, President Jefferson Davis
immediately called Benjamin to
the Confederate cabinet as iC-
torney general, followed by ap-
pointment as Secretary of War,
and a year later as Secre-
tary of State.
In the latter capacity Ben-
jamin served as an eloquent
exponent of the Confederate
cause, and he almost succeeded
in winning political recognition
and financial aid for the Con-
federacy from France and Eng-
land. He is still remembered aa
the guiding intellect of the Con-
federacy.
When Lee surrendered to
Grant in 1865, Benjamin fled to
England as a hunted refugea
with a price on his head, la
England he' too* 'np again tba
practice of laV.'^md sdon dis-
tinguished himself as an out-
standing Jurist "The Times" of
London called him "almost the
leader of the English Bar in all
heavy appeal cases."
THROUGH his 73 years Ben-
jamin took no part in Jewish
affairs. The most that can be
said for his Jewishness was that
he never denied his origin nor
did he convert to his :wit'e'a
Catholic faith.

SYNOPSIS OF THE WEEKLY TORAH PORTION
Bo
Israelites hurriedly partake of paschal lamb.
Egyptian first-born are slain by God.
"And ye shall eat it in haste it is the Lord's
passover" (Exod. 12.11). "The Lord smote all the first-
born in the land of Egypt" (12:29).
BO God sent Moses to Pharaoh once more with
the following words: "Go in unto Pharaoh .. and tell. .f
him: ... If thou refuse to let My people go, behold, to-
morrow will I bring locusts into thy border'" (Exodus
10.1-4). Pharaoh would not be moved. Then God pun-
ished Egypt with a thick darkness. Yet Pharaoh remain-
ed adamant. Finally, Moses warned the King of Egypt
that God would send the most fearful plague of all, the
death of all the first-born in the land, both of men and
beasts. The Israelites were given the ordinance of the
Passover, so named because God passed over the homes
of the Israelites when he killed the firstborn of the
Egyptians, on midnight of the fifteenth day of the first
month (Nissan). Pharaoh was shaken, at last. He sent
the children of Israel from the land. They consisted of
"about six hundred thousand men on foot, beside chil-
dren." In their haste to leave Egypt, the Israelites baked
matzoth from dough that was not leavened. Hence the
prohibition against eating leavened bread on Passover.

them to look at dia-
that wondrous organ-
the brain.
J!FT brain directs my
ght arm, which is for
nd precision. But the
lin is for the intuitive,
the unmeasurable. It directs my
left hand, and the left hand is
the dreamer.
Brain and hands together, in
their actual and symbolic ways,
comprise what Rollo May has
called the "courage to create."
That may be why I resent
time at least the clock-watch-
ing time. It may account for the
fact that I keep losing or drop-
ping or breaking any watch I
may have possessed and must
always borrow one in an emer-
gency.
FOR THE watch keeps re-
minding us of the dark angel of
death. "Watchman, what of the
night?" And so we work or
drift or dream "while it is
day. For the night cometh when
no man can work." Or drift. Or
dream.
In an age of clock-watching
the ultimate revolt is the revolt
against time, which is a revolt
against death. I am bound to be
told that it is a childish revolt,
because time makes everything
meaningful, and non-time would
be chaos, and death gives a
frame to life.
But I shall remain a rebel
against time; even then I have
to meet my deadlines, including
the last.

By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) Of-
ficials in Jerusalem have ex-
pressed deep concern at reports
of Egypt's plans to establish a
massive armaments industry.
These reports have been lent
new currency by the Valery Gis-
card D'Estaing visit to Egypt in
which the French President con-
fered with Sadat on French
technical help to set up the
projected arms industry.
According to western sources,
the Egyptian plans call for an
$8 billion investment, most of
it to come from Arab oil states.
BY THE 1980's, Egypt hopes
to have an indigenous industry
that will be able to manufacture
or assemble the most up-to-date
weaponry.
In the interim, Egypt pro-
poses to buy from the west the
present generation of weapons
to complement its existing So-
viet equipment.
Israeli experts outline three
distinct phases in Egypt's weap-.
on planning:
In the short range, Egypt
must look to Russia and the So-
viet bloc countries for servicing
and spares to maintain the
quality of its existing equip-
ment, nearly all of Eastern
Origin. At the same time,
though, Egypt is buying from
the west electronics equipment
and other items which can in-
tegrate into its Soviet-based sys-
tems;
In the intermediate rang**
Egypt plans to purchase present
generation western equipment
for instance Mirage 3's arat
Mirage F-1S. from France and
Sea-King and Gazelle heliccp
ten from Britain, as well B0
naval equipment;
In the long range, with tho
help of Arab oil money an<*
western known-how and tech
nology, Egypt plans to set up
its own armaments industty
able to supply it with the weap-
ons of the 1980's.
THERE ARE reportedly plan*
for French technicians to bo
stationed in Egypt shortly in
order to prepare the ground t'er
arms factories there.
The Israeli officials said tho
Major French contribution >o
these Egyptian plans could hai d-
ly be seen as a contribution fo
the peace option.

because the PLO has been in-
vited.
The Premier stressed in his
remarks that, as of this moment,
no Arab state is- ready to nego-
tiate with Israel, least of all
Syria, and to pretend that there
might be a change of heart
coaltr only undermine Israel's
position.
Rabin addressed a Labor
Party forum at Beit Berl near
Kfar Saba which filled the main
hall of the party's ideological
center while hundreds watched
the proceedings on closed-circuit
television in the anterooms.
Speakers included some of La-
bor's leading personalities in-
side and out of the government,
among them former Foreign
Minister Abba Eban, who chair-
ed the forum, and former De-
fense Minister Moshe Dayan.
Denies Absence of Peace Plan
Rabin vigorously denied
charges that his government
had* no* overall peace plan and
proceeded to outline what Israel
would* accept as defensible hor-
de is. A* true peace must be on
ttia ground, not on paper, he
said. Ha-declared that Israel will
not relinquish the Golan
Heights, but that this did not
necessarily mean that the pres-
ent lines would remain. He said
Bis government was prepared
to offer Egypt far-reaching ter-
ritorial concessions in Sinai but
would retain Sharm el-Sheikh at
the southern tip of the penin-
sula.
Rabin said Israel was also
prepared for territorial conces-
sions in negotiations with Jor-
dan but that there was no point
in drawing maps at this stage
because any Israeli pullbacks
from the Judaea and Samaria
regions would have to be ap-
proved by a national plebiscite
which the government has
promised before signing any
agreement with Jordan.
The Premier reiterated that
Israel would never accept a
third state between itself and
Jordan. He said that if PLO
chief Yassir Arafat ruled such
a state, it would bring another
intransigent foe close to Israel's
vital centers and reduce the
prospects of an overall settle-
ment with Israel's other neigh-
bors.
He also repeated Israel's de-
termination not to negotiate
with the PLO and insisted that
the only real solution of the
Palestinian problem would be
contained in a settlement with
Jordan.
Rabin said Israel recognized
the existence of a Palestinian
problem and that withoat its
solution the Arab-Israel conflict
could not be resolved. But he
did not believe the Palestinian
issue was the crux of the Mid-
dle East problem or the key to
peace.
Neither War Nor Peace In 1976
Eban and Dayan, though
ideologically far apart,, support-
ed the government's position
against a third state between
Israel and Jordan and against
negotiations with the PLO.
Dayan said he did not believe
1976 would bring either war or
peace to the Middle East be-
cause Egypt, Syria,, the Soviet
Union and, according to the
former Defense Minister, the
U.S., were seeking the political
route of Israel and would not
resort to the war option.
But Dayan saw a chance at
gaining a renunciation of bel-
ligerency from Egypt if the U.S.
cooperated in view at its rap-
prochement with Cairo and
Egypt's need for massive eco-
nomic aid. He called- for Jewish
settlement on the West Bank in
accordance with defense needs
and warned that an Israeli with-
drawal from the Judaea and
Samaria regions would be an
historic error. Eban proposed-
an interim settlement approach
to the West Bank.
Eban called for a new defini-
tion of Israel's position on the
Palestinian issue, and while he
agreed with the government's
decision to boycott the Jan. 12
Security Couiwil debate warned
that Israel's absence from UN
peace forums should not be-
come a permanent phenomenon.
Soccer Player
Killed
ive
ught

TEL AVIV (JTA) A
riot by spectators at a soc-
cer match in Rehovot result-
ed in one soccer player be-
ing stabbed to death and his
twin brother being badly
beaten when he tried to pur-
sue the murderer. A 17-
year-old suspect is being
held by police.
The tragedy, which has
stunned all of Israel, came
in the second half of fhe
league game between Mac-
cabi Rehovot and Maccabi
Kfar GviroL With the score
1-0 in favor of Maccabi Re-
hovot, the referee stopped
the game, charging the Mac-
cabi Kfar Gvirol players
with illegally pushing the
home team goaltender.
KFAR GVIROL fans then
jumped over the fence and at-
tacked the members of the Re-
hovot team.
One of them stabbed to death
Mordechai Kind, a member of
the Rehovot team. His twin
brother, Aharon, who is also a
member of the Rehovot team,
tried to catch the assailant but
was attacked and beaten by
other fans of the visiting, team.
Education Minister Aharon
Yadlin, who is in charge ot
sports in Israel, hinted that the
playing of league soccer games
may be suspended for a while.
Last year, there was an out-
cry to ban the games for a year
because of the rough behavior
of the fans. In many cases ref-
erees were threatened or even
injured, and there were reports
of players being bribed to lose
games.
THE SITUATION grew worse *VA.1T*I"*i
when hand grenades and deto-
nators were- used by spectators
to frighten players and referee's.
Bottles and stones wens thrown
as a matter of course.
A public commission had
various recommendations last
year. But suspending the league
game was ruled out because of
the popularity of the sport
which draws thousands of fans
to stadiums throughout the
country on Saturday afternoons.

Review Israeli Arabs' Situatiaon
Labor Party Secretary Gen-
eral Meir Zarmi announced that
he would shortly convene a
meeting of the Labor Party bu-
reau for an in-depth review of
policy toward Israel's Arab
population. Zarmi took a very
serious view of the Dec. 9 mu-
nicipal elections in Nazareth,
the largest Arab city in Israel,
where a Communist backed
slate headed by Tewfik Zaid
won a landslide victory over
the Labor Party candidate
Labor Party experts on Arab
affairs view the Nazareth re-
sults as having serious national
implications. The Communist
slate clearly benefited from
burgeoning nationalistic senti-
ments among the Israeli Arab
population- which had been do-
cile and mere or less apolitical
until the Yom Kippur War.
Labor's main concern is the
effect the Nazareth elections
will have on Israel's national
elections in 1977. Israeli Arabs
comprise 9 percent of the elec-
torate and if they vote en bloc,
could elect 11 MKs out of 120"
making them a potential power
greater than that of the Na-
tional Religious Party.
Attitude* Unlikely To Change
Shmuel Toledano, Rabin's ad-
visor on Arab affairs, did not
think it likely that Israelis
would change their attitude to-
ward the Arab minority under
the present political circum-
stances. He said the attitude of

For Moms
4G Jewish mother who complained to a Jewish com-
ity center official that she suffered from "the peanut
jes" sparked a program in Los Angeles which provides
rs so that the mothers can participate in cultural and
il programs.
jevelopment of the Young Mothers Morning Program

['"Program Aids," a quarterly publication of the Na-
rish Welfare Board.

inter-personal relationships outside of her family.

iong center officials that many Jewish young women

to meet those needs.
AGREED that the first major problem for the vouqg
is: "what do I do with my infant since reliable slt-
Ihard to find?" One of the first elements of the new
jram was arrangements to make baby-sitting services

ery school.

Ifior an hour for body-ego movement, yoga and folk

krsl programs which they help develop, including book
child development discussions, Jewish holiday work-
activities and rap sessions on growth and identity.
-SITTERS in the program, who receive training, are

ie sitters must have a chest X-ray and a note from
fctors that they are physically fit. Each participating
asked to bring tovs, bottles and cookies if she wants
to have them. The toys are left at the center and

Since When is 'Old'
A Four Letter Word?
]\0W THAT longevity is being mass-produced
in America by medical science, one in every
10 of our countrymen and countrywomen is
65 and over. And of these gray heads, at least
one in every four lives below the government-
drawn line of poverty.
As the century grows nearer to a close, the
percentage of elders will be even higher. And
all us deeply concerned about the manifold
problems of aging surely hope that the num-
ber of gerontoiogical centers in our major uni-
versities (there are JO bow) will increase.
FOR THE Jewish community, nurtured by
grand Biblical passages dealing with beloved
people attaining great age and traditionally
committed to caring tenderly for the infirm and
lonely among its ancients, added insights about
aging are always welcome. Such revelations
abound in a remarkable new book, "Old is Not
a Feur-Letter Word!", written by Jean Beaven
Abernetby and published by the Abington Press.
Reading and rereading Mrs. Abernethy's
reflections on the dilemmas, fears, hopes, and
opportunities of contemporary elders, one is
convinced she has gleaned the best of most
modern works in the field.
SHE IS factual, yet touchingly inspiration-
al; unafraid of jolting truths about neglect of
older people, yet respectful of all efforts made
to sift trough the deprivations and shocks
faced by the aging. She brings a harvest of wis-
dom and advice for those who waft to live
fruitfully and in dignity to the end and pro-
claims bravely and sensibly that while the aging
process has its own stern timetable, there is
much we can do about how we accept this cold
inevitability.
Mrs. Abernethy assigns herself the challenge
to answer two baric questions: 1How does a
person maintain a sense of one's own worth,
considering society'6 negative attitude toward
aging? 2What does an individual need to
learn which will be appropriate for the later
years?
IN RESPONSE to the first challenge, the
author points out that growing old in this era
of four-generation families can mean growing
new; that elders can opt for the positive ex-
pectation; that the 22 million who are 65 and
ever can refuse to withdraw, can fight such
harsh societal fates as mandatory retirement
and discrimination in such areas as credit
rights. That old monster, Society, is not invin-
cible; Gray Power is a new and influential army
in America.
Se much, then, that moderns who frown
upon categorization as Senior Citizens and
cringe a little when labeled as Golden Agers,
can do on the plus side.
Lives of the Generations
In the Kibbutzim of Israel
S
ttsan
nff
Lionel Tiger and Joseph Shepher. WOMEN IN
THE KIBBUTZ. Harcourt. S10.9S.
A NTHRePOLOGISTS Tiger and Shepher ex-
plore the lives of several generations of
women m Mbbucrim in Israel. They maintain
that "the study of the kibbutz is promising
ground for understanding sex differences every-
where and their impact on the division of la-
bor."
This in-depth survey involves interviews,
questionnaires, and the creation of a mathe-
matical formula for determining sex ratio dif-
ferences between populations.
THE AUTHORS present us with a candid
picture of all aspects of the kibbutz. Its eco-
nomics, agriculture, politics, education, military
services and family life, as well as a historical
survey.
From the eartv years of kibbutzim, women
have been taught to believe that boys and eirls
are equal. Equal rights means equal work. How-
ever, under the demand for expanded services
for a growing kibbutz-movement population,
women began to move from agricultural
branches to service work.
By the late 1940s, a wider variety of foods
were available, clothing was improving, and
there were children. Kibbutzuiks might be able
to treat food and clothing casually, but not the
children who were to be their dream of the
future-
THE EFFECT of these new demands caused
a long, gradual process of sexual polarization
. jluiuiiuiuWW HI WW.................Mir urn i ill "
of work. Tiger finds that many women begin
in male work, but move to a sex-typed job as
their longest or last job. This is more true with
the kibbutz-bred generation, than with those
who came to the kibbutz as adults.
The sinkers' data about education and
careers confirm ,what psychological studies
have told them all along: "women are more
interested than men in interpersonal transac-
tions and men prefer impersonal and very
broad activities, which rarely involve small chil-
dren."
THE DISCREPANCY between the attitude
toward equality dad actual behavior causes
soul- searching within the kibbutz movement
today.
An unpopular conclusion of this study is
that it shows what may be a deeply rooted pat-
tern of human behavior. However, this review-
er suggests that what is equality for one might
be view as inequality by another. The authors
make a related judgment: "people's (read wom-
en's) actions are not necessarily the unhappy
performances of the duped and confused," as
Kate Milieu and other feminists insist.
PEW OTHER women enloy the supportive
facilities available in the kibbutz. Women in
the HbbMtz can be confident that their children
are taken care of and educated; that they are
given jobs and economic security; and that they
ace surrounded by a loving extended family.
Can those of us outside the Jiibbutz be as-
sured of such a future for ourselves and our
children?

nd Gaza.
I quality of the programs has^enjp high and
Item so interesting that more mid more non-
raetis have fallen into the habit ef tuning in,
Je Israel Broadcasting Service now runs He-
pbtitles op many of the Arabic programs.
GSE ARE no crude propaganda broadcasts. In-
: would appear there are no immediate ob-
beyond the desire to provide this large group
residents with entertainment and informa-
to what the Hebrew speaking population
Cad.
receives. In the long run, if they have confidence in
Israel's TV, and look upon it as their TV, so n>Jch
the belter.
There is no attempt to argue politics, or to brain-
wash the public. On the other hand, there is no avoid-
ing controversial subjects, and both the good and
negative sides of Israel are shown
OUR ARABS can also receive the Lebanese,
Syrian, Jordanian and Egyptian TV broadcasts, de-
pending on what part of Israel they live in, and we
seek to counter their exaggerated criticism with a
balanced picture.
Typical programs: Know Israela weekly docu-
mentary on life, especially in aseas ef human inter-
est where there is joint Arab-Jewish interaction
ere is a periodic feature on life in an Arab village,.
d|he camera puts the chosen village of the week
the little screen.
THJBRE IS a vwekiy feature en life and culture in
the Islamic werld. and an Arab literary program,
They are directed to the intelligent, literate, think-
ing Arabs.
I can add a ftiffher observation on one aspect of
our Arabic TV: Many of the female announcers are
gorgeous beauties, and far outshine their Jewish col-
leagues on the Hebrew programs.

If you
You are about to find out
why a tire you never heard of
is the best tire for these times
Radically new. Radically different.
The only radial with steel sidewalls.
The I.R.I. All-Sted Radial is the world's first
all-steel radial tire for automobiles. It's the
most economical tire you can own. Because of
the radial design, you get more miles per gallon
of gas than from either bias or belted bias
tires. Because of the exclusive I.R.I. Ail-Steel
construction, you get thousands of extra miles
out of the tire itself. We believe the result
la the lowest cost per mile of driving from any
hind or any brand of tire on the market today.
Our engineers believe the, I.R.I. All-Sted
Radial drives safer, rides more comfortably,
steers more precisely and responds surer
than any other tire you can buy at any price.
We guarantee them for 50,000 miles. What's
more, Norton U so sure you'll find these
the finest tires you've ever had that if you
are not satisfied at any time within 90 days,
we will refund your purchase price in full.
No tricks. No hidden charges.
But, boil U all down and
you've got three baalc
tire types to consider.
I. MAS J. BELTED J. RADIAL
1 BIAS TIRES
Two, four or lomttimts even more plies (or
layers) of material cross under the tread at an
angle or bias to the center line ol the tire. Generatf
the cheapest tire to buy.
J. BELTED TIRES
Similar to the bias t with the addrtwi of to*
r more belts of material that run around the lire
voder the (read This combines a bws sXewaf,
with increased tread stability and improved
tread life.
9. RADIAL TIRES
Offer the most desirable features. Cords of
material run from sidewall to sidewall crossing the
tread at 90 degrees. Two or more belts of material
also run around the tire. Price per tire is higher,
but cost per mile is lower.
Buying tires is tough enough.
You almost need an engineer's education to
understand tire advertising these days. There
are bias and belted and radial types. F-78's
and FR-78's and 7.75's all of which fit the
same car. And nylon and rayon and polyester
and fiberglass and steel. And plies on plies.

NORTON
SINCE 1924
TIRE CO.
1. The only tire with STEEL
sidewalls for strength and
flexibility, more protection,
more comfort.
2. Two belts of special filament
steel cable for maximum tread
strength, 30 steel cables per inch.
Total: Three layers of steel '
beneath the tread.
3. Double steel protection here.
The only passenger tire with steel
on both sides of the bead
for sure-fire responsiveness.
4. All-weather computer-designed
tread.
The strongest radial to an all-steel radial.
The I.R.I. Is the only all-steel radial
automobile tire.
Conventional, so-called stod radials. put steal
to work beneath the tread only. One or two
belts of sled run the circumference of the tire
and fabric or fiber cords are used radially
sidewaU to sidewall. The conventional Mod
radial tire is only a steel-belted radial. This la
important to uaWtorefadtog the superiority of
aa I Rl. AU-Steel Radial.
An exclusive design and engineering process
put more sted in the I.R.I, radial than in any
other automobile tire. Two layers or belts of
sted cables (30 per inch) make sure the I.R.I.
tread stays open for maximum road contact
in all kinds of weather. This also reduces
friction, which is the biggest single cause of
tire wear.
A third barrier of sted cables replaces the
fabric (polyester, fiberglass, etc) used to the
sidewalls of all other automobile tires. The
result is 100 per cent sted strength and
protection.
Rated Load Rang* D.
I.R.I. Ail-Steel Radials meet government stand-
ards equivalent to an eight-ply rating and it's
stamped on the side of every I.R.I, tire. Most
passenger tires even steel-belted radials
earn only a B or four-ply rating. Load Range D
means an extra margin of strength and safety
for all vehicles, even the heaviest of luxury
automobiles, station wagons or pick-ups.
Improved steel cable design means extra
comfort, too.
The I.R.I. Alt-Steel Radial uses a specially
designed sted cable engineered exclusively for
us- Each cable is wound of seven strands of
three-filament wire. That's a total of 21 strong
sted filaments in each cable. Yet. with all this
strength, the cable is as flexible as silk. The
result is a soft, luxurious ride.
The new year-'round tread.
A special computer-designed tread configura-
tion was developed to make maximum use
of the strength built into the I.R.I. All-Sted
Radial. Now, the combination of sted and
tread design provides solid, road-holding
performance under all kinds of driving
conditions wet or dry. snow or summer heat
The I.R.I, is an afl-wesrftor. all-year tire.
Why you haves* heard about I.R.I.
All-Sted Radials tffl i
Compared with the giants of the tire industry.
I.R.I, is a relatively small company. We
are growing steadily on a market-by-market
plan now reaching your city. Five years
ago. we act out to produce a tire that was as
good as the finest imported tire available
Because we had no conventional tite-making
equipment, we were free "to try anything."
We did. And came up with a totally new idea
that produced a tire even better than the one
we had set out to make. The I.R.I. All-Sted
Radial has been tested and re-tested. Subjected
to literally millions of miles of road-handling
experience. Now it's available here. Backed by
a 50.000-mile guarantee. Sold and serviced only
by proven leaders in the business.
