Israel in its formative years
has been compared by many
to the pioneer days in our own
land. In each the work ethic
and love of country were para-
mount. Today both Israel and
the United States are beset with
severe problems. As Jews we
must share these problems with
our brothers in Israel and ev-
erywhere in the world where
Jews are downtrodden and in

we must not be found wanting.
As devoted citizens of America
we must become more deeply
involved in our participatory
democracy to help achieve the
high and noble ideals set forth
in our Constitution and Bill of
Here in Greater Fort Laud-
erdale the Jewish Community
now numbers 60,000 and is
growing every day. The Jewish
Federation, as in other cities,
is the central organization and
the "address" of the Jewish
Community. It is charged with
the responsibility of raising the
funds in the annual United
Jewish Appeal Campaign, which
is still in progress, planning
for and providing those pro-
grams and services which are
needed by the community, and
helping Jews in need in Israel
and around the world.
1 am happy to report to you
today that we are making prog-
ress. Our Jewish Family Serv-
ice last year served 644 fam-
ilies. Half of these families
-served are older adults. The
help they receive runs the ga-
mut from marital counseling,
personal adjustment to financial
planning, physical care, home-
maker service, and much else
that affects the well-being of
fellow humans who have to cope
with the problems of life.
Federation, with the Family
Service, has also brought in and
is helping successfully resettle
a Russian Jewish family and is
expecting a new family this
coming week.
We now have a very active
Jewish Community Center that
operates within the Federation's
new facilities and in an out-
reach program. This program
has served many hundreds of
people. We have a great variety
of programs for senior adults
teens, tweens, and elementary-
school children. There are three
active singles groups and a
holiday program for colleae
Federation's chaplaincy pro-
gram provides hospital and
.nursing home visitation by our
chaplain, who has also devel-
oped a lay-visitation committee.
Federation provides other
services in Jewish education
including support of the He-
brew Day School, community
relations, leadership develop-
ment, Jewish Floridian, college
youth and faculty programs
cultural programs and others.'
In this Bicentennial year it
is fitting and proper that our
community and Federation be-
come more deeply involved in
the activities of the general
community. Toward this end
we are participating in "Star-
Spangled Broward," a county-
wide educational "Town Hall"
program involving many com-
munity agencies, which will vis-
it every city in Broward Coun-
ty-We are also encouraging
participation, by individuals and
organizations, in many commu-
nity celebrations of our Bicen-
tennial year.
As oar community grows and
expands, there is no doubt that
we will have to continue to meet
the needs and demands brought
about by this growth. This is
particularly true in respect to
the needs of the aged, both in
institutional and non-institu-
tional settings. Also an ade-
quate physical facility will be
needed to house the Jewish
Community Center.
As we strive to strengthen
our own Jewish and general
community, we must keep in
proper perspective our over-
whelming and overriding re-
sponsibility to Israel.
On this, the 28th anniversary
of Israel and the 200th birth-
day of the United States, our
fervent prayer is for Shalom
Peace, and for all mankind.
BONN (JTA) Israeli firms will participate in 3
fairs all over the world this year, 10 of them in West Ger-
many, it was announced here. Israel will be represented
by 38 firms at the Hanover industrial fair. Among the items
Israel will display will be the Westwind executive jet, the
Arava multipurpose civilian transport, and the Gabriel'sur-
face-to-surface missile.

Young Leaders Say Mission
Defined New Levels of Unity
Dr. Robert and Susan Segaul
were Florida regional heads of
a Young Leadership Mission to
Israel which coincided with the
celebration of Israel's Independ-
ence and was sponsored by the
Young Leadership Division of
the United Jewish Appeal. Par-
ticipating on the mission with
the Segauls were Dr. Alan and
Sandy Goldenberg and Dr. Rich-
ard and Harriet Greene.
According to the Segauls,
there was great excitement and
joy at being in Israel during
its independence celebration.
The participants toured Israel,
studied the tasks and respon-
sibilities of the Jewish Agency,
journeyed to Israeli settlements
and met with many Israeli peo-
ple, and conferred with top
government leaders.
"Our mission was more than
a mission it was a happening
and an experience that defined
a new level of consciousness
and unity between Young Lead-
ership and Israelis. We encour-
age as many persons as possible
to participate in the This Year
in Jerusalem' mission in Octo-
ber so that they too can share
with the Israeli people their
strength, their zeal for life,
their dreams, their hopes, and
their destiny," the Segauls con-

Let Carter Speak Out
Now that Sen. Henry Jackson is out of the presi-
dential running, and now that Jimmy Carter's cam-
paign has been spurred to even more vigorous strides
by his victory in Texas, it behooves the American Jew-
ish community to get down to the specifics of Carter's
position on the Middle East.
It was one thing for the former Georgia governor
to wear a yarmulke during his visits in Miami. It is
quite another to extract from him a definite position.
There are those who would agree that Carter's es-
sential fudging on issues extends beyond his silence
about the Middle East generally and Israel particularly.
Now comes British MP Eric Moonman, who has
stated flatly for the record that Gov. Carter "is singu-
larly uninformed and perhaps uninspired with Israel's
case" in the Middle East conflict.
Whether or not the British Labor Party leader is
correct, it certainly is true that Carter has given us
little cause to believe that Moonman is not correct.
If we are finally to take Carter's campaign serious-
ly, let him speak out on this particular issue, which is
not only paramount to us as Jews, but as Americans
Racism and Anti-Zionism
The debate at the United Nations Economic and
Social Council has provided further proof if any
was needed that the Arabs are willing to subvert
every legitimate purpose of the UN in order to win
propaganda points against Israel.
The United States and Israel correctly pointed out
that they will not paricipate in the Decade for Action
to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination as long as
it is linked in any way to anti-Zionism.
Israeli Ambassador Chaim Herzog stressed that
while Israel supports "all moves to eliminate racism
in the world" the introduction of the anti-Zionism res-
olution "obliges us, regretfully, to speak out against the
program as long as that obscene act is in any way,
however remotely, associated with this program."
The Arab attempts to include anti-Zionism in the
Decade should be proof once again to the Black African
countries that the Arabs do not have their interests at
heart. The Arabs have been willing to destroy every
UN agency in order to attack Israel.
Representatives of Black African countries have
voiced concern privately that the Arab attempts to in-
clude Zionism as racist will hurt the efforts aimed
against South Africa and Rhodesia. This is exactly what
is happening. It is time for the Black African countries
to tell the Arabs to stop enough damage has been
Open Hand and Open Heart
We are delighted by the story this week that an
Egyptian woman, whose son is a Cairo doctor, wound up
at Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem for open heart sur-
We do not have in mind what this says about the
medical excellence of Hadassah Hospital which has, of
course, spoken for itself over the years.
More important is the strange way in which hu-
man need, often tragic human need, overcomes the
artificial boundary lines of hostile nations and politics.
Would that all of Egypt could turn to Israel for
its manifold needs with open hand and open heart. The
way in which Hadassah responded to the Cairo wom-
an's coronary problem is precisely the way in which
all of Israel would respond to all of Egypt.
Unfortunately, politicians do not seem to be able
to act that way. And so hostiliy and threats of war and
the acquisition of arms, which neither Israel nor Egypt
can afford, will continue to be the way of life for these
two countries at the same time that their individual
citizens yearn for peace and humanitariamsm._______
Why Carter is Way Ahead
LWTREINCHED politicians in
both parties are finally com-
ing to acknowledge the dura-
bility of Jimmy Carter's candi-
dacy even if Carter, himself, is
careful to observe that he is by
no means a shoo-in for the Dem-
ocratic nomination.
The thing I find fascinating
about this is that the politicians
have come to their acknowledg-
ment so late particularly the
Democrats, who kept counting
on the now defunct campaign
of Sen. Jackson as a spring-
board for Hubert Humphrey or
even, among the least inspired
of the politicians who would
like to believe they are the most
inspired, the nay-sayer, Teddy
THE TROUBLE with politi-
cians in power is that too many
of them are lawyers with more

they have made a legal con-
tract filled with tiny type need-
ing a magnifying glass to read
it, and also filled with the kind
of casuistry that would stump
the finest Talmudist.
They do not reckon that the
people can handle their own
business. It is in the politician's
highest interest that he estab-
lish the construct of the citizen
as "layman" (a word I detest
for its smugness) who requires
an elitist class educated in the
ways of the law and govern-
ment to rule him.
BUT THE truth is that gov-
ernment is OF the law; it is not
THE law. These arc two very
different things, and those who
would like us not to understand
the difference are the tiny type

all that tiny type and the alle-

In fact, lawyers though they
be, thev are often the most
poorly educated souls I have
ever met and the least qualified
to be politicians in the best

GOV. CARTER'S candidacy
runs contrary to this well-
thumbed primer of the politi-
cian's self interest. I do not as-
sert that Carter is not one of
them that he >< not an elitist
politician toe. But it is clear
that the people do not think
he is.
If the politicians are baffled
by Carter's success thus far,
the reason for it is simply that
their elitism does not permit
them to understand the temer-
ity of the people's determina-
tion to reject it.
The reason for it is their fail-
ure to learn the lesson of his-
velt gave meaning in the 20th
century to the sacred status of
the individual citizen. He not
only fulfilled the promise of
the Declaration of Independ-
ence, making it applicable to i
modern state the Declaratioj
of Independence, like Rouvl
seau's "Social Contract," was
really designed for a mini-so
He also established the indi-
vidual citizen as a bulwark
against the crushing inroads on
American civilization of the
late 19th century robber bar-
ons, who had come to regard
the individual citizen as nuga-
tory in their thrust toward
monopolistic and multinational
To accomplish this, Roose-
velt instituted the elitism of
big government, and a bur-
geoning middle class grew side
by side with pater familias who,

odd moments took the form of
benevolent bestiality when
nature conspired that he should,*
do so.

Jewish Education Still an Issue
Volume 5
Friday, May 14, 1976
Number 10
14 IYAR 5736
My column on the priorities
established for Jewish educa-
tion funding (Apr. 23) evoked
the usual spurt of telephone
calls, lapel-tugging and letters
which I expected to receive
based on the experience of writ-
ing many similar to it over
the past seven or ten years.
A goodly number expressed
themselves as appalled with the
No. 14 rating given "Educa-
tion for the underprivileged
Jewish child," that distance
from the top being highlighted
by my comment that No. 13
featured "Educational trips
Israel, Europe, cross-country"
to the further advantage, if one
wishes to call that, of the
FOR REASONS I have not yet
fathomed, it is rare that local
agencies publicize anything but
their annual dinners and neglect
to inform the community of
policy decisions.
A number of inquirers were
curious about the total priority
package of the Central Agency,
for Jewish Agency, so here are
the 26 in the order of import-
ance listed by the majority of
CAJE Board members:
Judaica High School, Institute
for Jewish Studies, Hebrew Ul-
oan, Day Schools, Afternoon
Schools, Family and Adult Edu-
cation, Teacher Fringe Bene-
fits,' Federation and its af-
filiated agencies lay and pro-
fessional Jewish education. Edu-
cation Resource Center, Ethnic
studies in the miblic schools,
Central Agency for Jewish Edu-
cation for South Florida, resi-
dent camp-year-round Jewish
rael, Europe, crosscountry Edu-
cation for the underprivileged
Jewish child, Jewish education
for the Special Child, Working
with Federation agencies to in-
tensify the Judaic program-
ming, Early Childhood Educa-
tion, Enhancing the status of
professional Jewish educators
on all levels, Higher Jewish edu-
cation, Judaica museum;
Research and statistical proj-
ects values, evaluation of
programs, attitudes; Education
for the Aged, Pedagogic spe-
cialists at CAJE, Publications,
Recruitment and development
of new personnel in Jewish edu-
cation and Jewish communal
service and Yiddish Studies
Even a cursory look at the
list tells a great deal about
where our community is at not
only educationally but philoso-
phically and culturally. Those
interested might wish to com-
ment on those stated needs for
just the bare sentence should
be enough to provoke debate.
THE BIG problem, I imagine,
is whom do you debate? For
all intents and purposes it is
a one-sided argument. The
response of those who really
can do something about it is
mostly silence.
This issue seems to be a sea-
sonal one with me, as predict-
able as the Jewish holiday cal-
endar and, obviously, stems
from my own calendar. In April
and May I am particularly con-
scious of funding special needs
that most synagogue (or Fed-
eration agency) budgets do not
provide for ordinarily.
As I wrote at the end of April,
1972: "Little things, like Pas-
sover food for people on wef j
fare. Small sums that will help
some kids go to Jewish camps
for a few weeks, for an experi-
ence they would not have be-
cause their families most of
them broken by divorce or
death cannot afford it."
NOTHING has changed, ex-
cept possibly for the worse, nor
is there more money for this
except from those generous few
who continue to give to help
those kids. There is no effort
to provide for this on a com-
munity level. Except that I heir
from the Lubavitcher rebb*^
local forces that some effort ii. |
that direction may be made thiSj
Back in May, 1969, I>rote
about the economics of Jewis*
education at the synagogui
level, stating there was "evid-l
ence that some children were
foreclosed from the experience
because their parents could not
afford to belong.'*
Further, "As far as I know,
the Commission on Jewish Edu-
cation of Greater Miami's Jew-
ish Federation is still without
any hard evidence that there
are families who want a Jewuj
education for their children a*,
can't get it because of rroney_
And it is obvious that CAJE,
the successor to the Commis-
sion, is not about to try to get*
such evidence.

something about the synagoguej

is plenty of "hard evfoW* |

Brandeis Comprehensive High
School, Community College and
Vocational Guidance Institute
costs over $1 million annually.
BUT AS the fashions prove,
the schools are attuned to Is-
rael's need for skilled career-
oriented graduates for her $145-
million-a-year fashion industry:
the designs are strong, often
utilizing hand-woven fabrics and
hand-beading, and the tailoring
carefully translates Oriental
motifs into modern expressions.
About 35 students in advanced
courses spent a full year de-
signing, preparing fabrics and
sewing for the show, which un-
questionably reflects Israel's
ability to meet her commit-
ments, no matter what happens.
Israel's awareness that she
must be totally reliable in the
world trade markets is reflected
equally well in computer tech-
nology, electronics, scientific
photography and medical rec-
ord-keeping all of which are
taught in the Hadassah schools,
which provide education and
the equal opportunities and ca-
reer mobility needed by Israel's
disadvantaged youth.

Isidor Bush (Busch), 1822-
1898, a Viennese liberal who
published and edited several of
the revolutionary newspapers
in Vienna and took an active
part in the Republican Revolu-
tion, was among those who
might be considered to have
Bush was active in the Bo-
hemian Austrian emigration
movement. In an article he co-
authored in a weekly of which
he was co-publisher Bohemian
and Austrian Jews were en-
couraged to pack their belong-
ings, gather their families to-
gether and set out for America
to escape the violence of Euro-
pean hatred of the Jews.
BORN IN Prague, the son of
a Hebrew printer, Isidor Bush
was the great-grandson, on his
mother's side, of the first Jew
raised to nobility in Austria.
Bush was only IS when he en-
tered the printing profession.
Privately educated, he de-
veloped an interest in Hebrew
literature. From boyhood he had
the advantage of moving in cul-
tured circles and of having con-
tact with rare minds such as
Leopold Zunz and Michael
Among various publishing
projects. Bush for some years
produced yearbooks in German
to which well-known Jewish
writers contributed. In 1842-47
he edited and published the
"Kalender und Jahrbuch fur Is-
raeliten" (Vienna), the first al-
manac by Jewish authors for
Jewish readers.
In the wake of the 1848 revo-
lution, Bush fled to America,
arriving in New York City in
January, 1849, where he opened
a book and stationery store. On
March 30, 1849, he launched the
first issue of the first Jewish
weekly to be published in the
United States. "Israels Herold."
paper, in German, M. M. Noah
and S. M. Isaacs wrote, in Eng-
lish, commendatory notices and
urged Jews to become subscrib-
! ers. Leading members of B'nai
B'rith also supported Bush in
the undertaking. Bush was ap-
parently ahead of his time. This
pioneering effort of American
Jewish journalism lasted three
months. In a swan-song editorial
comment Bush wrote,. "A Jew-
ish literary periodical is a com-
plete impossibility here. There
are hardly ten people who would
have any interest in it."
In the summer of 1849 Bush
moved to St. Louis, where his
wife's relatives, the Taussig
family, had already settled. He
engaged in various business
ventures, the grocery business,
hardware, real estate.
In 1857 he founded and be-
came president of the People's
Savings Bank and later presi-
dent of another savings institu-
tion. For six years Jhe was gen-
eral freight and passenger agent
for the St. Louis and Iron Moun-
tain Railroad Company.
Bush helped found Congrega-
tion B'nai in St. Louis. He was
active in B'nai B'rith at both the
local and national levels. He
helped found in Cleveland
Jewish Orphan Asylum.
DURING THE American Civil
War. Bush lived among large
numbers of Confederate sym-
pathizers. Missouri was in a
state of turmoil whether to re-
main in the Union or secede
and ioin the Southern Confed-
eracy. Bush remained a warm
sunnorter of the Union and of
With the rank of captain, he
served as an aide on General
Fremont's staff in 1861. His
most notable political activity
was as a Republican member
nf the Missouri state constitu-
tional conventions during the
Civil War. At the State Conven-
tion following the formation of
a Union Party in St. Louis, with
Bush one of its delegates, he de-
livered what Civil War histor-
ians have considered "the out-
standing unconditional Union
speech of the convention."
Quoting from Henry Clay, in
ending his speech, Bush said,
" 'We owe a paramount alle-
giance to the whole Union a
subordinate one to our own
In 1863, when the Convention
took up the problem of slave
emancipation. Bush declared
himself in favor of outright and
soeedy emancipation as well as
of the democratic processes.
Bush, the sole dissenter of the
Committee on Emancipation,
submitted a minority report.
His resolution was not accepted.
In 1865, after Lincoln's reelec-
tion, Bush again found himself
championing liberty and poli-
tical freedom as a member of
the S.tate Convention in St.
Louis held to draft a new state
AGAIN THE liberal views of
this former European Jewish in-
tellectual were in a minority.
He voted against the proposed
constitution, which disfranchis-
ed many citizens sympathetic to
the Southern cause. With 13
others, Bush refused to sign the
document. A decade later it was
rejected by the state.
In 1865 Bush was secretary of
the Missouri State Board of Im-
migration, following 12 years as
president of the St. Louis Ger-
man Immigration Aid Society.
He was a St. Louis alderman
and member of the Board of
Later in life Bush became
interested in viticulture. He
bought a tract of land outside
the city which he named "Bush-
berg" and which became noted
for its products. When French
vineyards were ravaged by phyl-
loxera. Bush sent large quan-
tities of cuttings from his vine-
After years of preparation,
he published "The Bushberg
Catalogue," which went through
several editions and was trans-
lated into several languages.
In America as in Europe, Ju-
daism and Jewish causes had
prime place in Bush's life. In
America as in Europe, Isidore
Bush proved a staunch protago-
nist of personal liberty and po-
litical freedom even when he
had to stand alone.
Inside Judaica
Q. What is the Jewish His-
tory in China?
A. There are virtually no
Jews living in Mainland China.
China as long ago as the eighth
century (two fragmentary docu-
ments state). They probably ar-
rived by caravan from or via
Persia across Central Asia.
Other Jews arrived by sea
along the Muslim trade route to
the southern Chinese port of
Canton. There, during a rebel-
lion in 878-79, some 120,000
Muslims, Jews and other for-
eigners were massacred. Re-
ports of other Jewish communi-
ties in China cannot be corro-
borated; it seems that the stay
of Jews in Chinese territory at
that time was only temporary.
A cohesive group of Jews,
some 1,000 people, settled in the
ninth or tenth century at the
invitation of the emperor in
Kaifeng. They spoke New Per-
sian and came from either India
or Persia. Some 250 of their
descendants, whose Jewishness
has been lost through intermar-
riage, are still living in Kaifeng,
states the Encyclopaedia Ju-
When Marco Polo visited
China toward the end of the
13th century, he reported that
Jews, Muslims, and Christians
were disputing their respective
religions before the Mongol con-
queror and his court. Three de-
crees issued in China under
Mongol rule indicate that the
number of Jews must have been
sizable. No new Jewish com-
munities were formed in China
until the middle of the 19th cen-
With the cession of Hong
Kong to Great Britain and the
establishment of foreign conces-
sions in Shanghai, Tientsin, and
other cities, substantial settle-
ment of Jews began. By 1937
about 10,000 Jews were living
in China. Some 2,000 lived in
Shanghai; about 1,000 of them
belonged to various European
nationalities (750 were early re-
fugees from Nazism); some 500
came from Russia; some 400
were British subjects, mostly
from India and Iraq; and some
50 were Americans.
Tientsin also had a population
of about 2,000, half of whom
were of Russian origin. The
Russian Jewish population of
Harbin amounted to some 5,000
people. Most of the Russian
Jews were refugees from the
Revolution of 1917, according
to the Encyclopaedia Judaica.
On the eve of the Pacific War
a total of 25,000 to 30,000 Jews
were living in China, including
Manchuria: about 18,000, vic-
tims of Hitlerism, found a pre-
carious shelter in Japanese-
occupied Shanghai between
1938 and 1941, later enla
Jewish communities dej
from Japan.
After the end of World War
II, the Jews in China were given
an opportunity to proceed to
other carts of the world. Rus-
sian Jews were urged by the
Soviet authorities to return to
the Soviet Union, and practical-
ly all the Jews from Manchuria
had to follow this invitation as
Manchuria was cut off from the
rest of the country by civil war.
A few elderly Jews without fam-
ilies were allowed to live out
their days in Shanghai.
Neither the Chinese People's
Republic nor the Nationalist
government has diplomatic rela-
tions with Israel.

Belief in Believing in God
Is Not Enough
By Rabbi Nathan H. Zwitman
Congregation B'nai Zion
More than half of our religi-
ous institutions are supported
by men who merely believe in
believing in God. They feel it is
good for others to believe in
God, but they themselves can
"The seventh year shall be a sabbath nei-
ther sow thy field ..." (Lev. 25.4;. ". hallow
the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the
land" (25.10).
BEHAR "And the Lord spoke unto Moses in
mount Sinai, saying When ye come into the land
which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath
unto the Lord ... in the seventh year shall be a sab-
bath of solemn rest for the land thou shalt neither
sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard And the
sabbath-produce of the land shall be for food for you:
for thee, and for thy servant and for thy maid, and
for thy hired servant and for the settler by thy side
that sojourn with thee; and for thy cattle, and for the
beasts that are in thy land" (Leviticus 25.1-7). Follow-
ing seven sabbatical years, the 50th year is to be ob-
served as a jubilee. "That which groweth of itself of
thy harvest thou shalt not reap" (Leviticus 25.5).
Scripture then states "And ye shall hallow the fiftieth
year, and proclaim liberty throughout the land unto
all the inhabitants thereof; it shall be a jubilee unto
you. ... Ye shall return every man unto bis posses-
sion" (Leviticus 25.10-11).
The same laws pertaining to the sabbatical year
hold true of the jubilee. In addition, all fields return
to their original owners; every Hebrew slave is free
to return to his home. A Hebrew slave can always be
redeemed; if he is not redeemed, he goes free in the
jubilee year.
"And if thy brother be waxen poor, and his means
fail with thee; then thou shalt uphold him: as a strang-
er and a settler shall he live with thee. Take thou no
interest of him or increase; but fear thy God; that thy
brother may live with thee. Thou shalt not give him thy
money upon interest, nor give him fhy victuals for in-
crease" (Leviticus 25.35-37).

Problems for
Day-Care Centers
"The survival of day-care cen-
ters is in great jeopardy," warns
Joseph C. Dunleavy, project di-
rector of Early Childhood De-
velopment Association, the
United Way agency that over-
sees 11 day care centers and
nurseries serving low income
families in Broward County.
He made the statement in the
wake of a recent Presidential
veto, which denied additional
funds to help day-care centers
meet rigorous federal standards.
According to Dunleavy, Title
XX, the federal law establishing
day-care centers, mandates that
one adult be present for every
ten preschoolers and one adult
for every five infants younger
than 24 months.
New and stricter Federal In-
teragency Guidelines are ex-
pected to be enforced soon, how-
ever. These will require ratios
of one adult for five preschool-
ers, one adult for four babies
ages six weeks to three years,
and one for infants of less than
six weeks.

existine Title XX adult-to-child
ratio, but with the expected en-
forcement of the guidelines and
dismal prospects for additional

iometimes it Seems That Wall to Wall Cabinet is Needed in Israel
yODAY WE shall have a short lesson in the real-
ities of Israel's internal political organization.
The leadership of the country and the vital deci-
sions which such leadership makes are directly af-
fected by that organization.
Since the creation of the State no political party
has ever won a majority in the Knesset. Hence it
has always been necessary to form a coalition a
working partnership which would assure parliamen-
tary backing of at least 61 of the 120 votes in the
TWICE IN its history Israel felt called upon, in
the face of national emergency, to create a wall-to-
wall coalition of all or almost all parties and thus
assure a national united front. The first time was
in 1948, when independence was proclaimed. The
second time was in June, 1968, on the outbreak of
the Six-Day War.
Todays Government, headed by Prime Minister
Yitzhak Rabin, comprises a coalition which gives it
the support of 67 members of the Knesset. That
means that a large minority of 53 is completely left
out of the decision making at Government and Cabi-
net level. Chief bloc in the opposition is Gahal, with
39 Knesset members.
AGAIN AND again voices are heard warning us
that Israel faces a new crisis. Who can deny that
we are experiencing a series of political and diplo-
matic setbacks which are seriously eroding our posi-
tion on the international scene? Our righteous in-
dignation against the steamroller tactics at the
United Nations is not going to alter the bitter facts.
Is this not a time to draw into the Government
all the talents available, irrespective of party, and
create a National Unity Cabinet?
Minister of Defense Shimon Peres has openely
ldvocated it. Every public poll has endorsed it.
AT A TIME when Jerusalem calls upon world
Jewry to unite in support of Israel, cannot this
country itself set an example of unity?
To be sure, there are legitimate doubts with
respect to the move. One objection is that it will
introduce widely divergent opinions into the Cabi-
net, with the result that it will be difficult, or per-
haps even impossible, to arrive at decisions.
Given Help
[ORE THAN 1,000 Jewish men and women inmates of eight
prisons in New York State sought and received help from
ewish Family Service counselors in the period between 1970
id 1975, according to a report by the agency.
The agency's social rehabilitation division provides help to
Jewish criminal, to the ex-criminal and to his family during
his incarceration and post-prison adjustment A spokes-
said the vast majority of Jewish criminals are men.
THE SPOKESMAN reported that the number of Jews in
m has been declining steadily. One explanation offered is
the criminal justice system is now more concerned with
breakers involved in highly visible and dangerous street
aes than with "white collar" criminals those whose of-
es include writing of bad checks, embezzlement of funds
similar crimes.
'The spokesman said Jewish offenders usually are in the
fcr category and frequently are not sent to jail. But in re-
nt years, the spokesman said, there has been a slight in-
in the number of Jews imprisoned for drug abuse.
PRISON LIFE for Jewish inmates, as for inmates general-
is a grim affair but with a particular harassment. As mem-
of a minority group, the spokesman said, Jewish inmates
[often forced into the role of scapegoats. Because they are
judged as a group, rather than as individuals, Jewish
react by tending to stick together,
te spokesman said that one way this group feeling mani-
itself is in attendance at religious services in prison, a
larity of attendance which for many of them was a prac-
Irarely or never maintained "on the outside."
|NE RESULT is that the Jewish inmates often establish a
tanship with the prison rabbi who may help the prisoner
|e problems in prison But if the inmate has concerns
this family, he is referred to a JFS counselor.
?S counseling is provided to inmates in six prisons in the
lYork metropolitan area and to ten correctional facilities
pjtate New York. Help is provided in fact-to-face meetings
, via the mail. JFS counselors maintain an extensive and
tinuing correspondence with the prisoner and his family,
ch concerns not only current problems but also the need
getting a job after release.
THE PROGRAM at the prisons consists of provision of
aeling services by a specially assigned JFS worker who

these women to express those feelings.

complete helplessness. Separation for these wives can btttfto

Rebuttal to Bellow's
Distasteful Performance
CYNTHIA OZICK, Bloodshed and Three Novel-
las. N.Y.: Alfred A Knopf, $6.95. 178 pp.
S^YNTHIA OZICK wrote a commentary in The
' New York Times Book Review (March 21,
1976) on Saul Bellow's recent distasteful inter-
views and lectures. Everyone fa Miami was
suitably shocked and disgusted with Bellow.
Miss Ozick successfully and very skillfully
chastised him.
After reading the above essay entitled
"Hanging the Ghetto Dog," I looked forward
to her new book, "Bloodshed," with great anti-
cipation. 1 have not been disappointed. I am a
little annoyed with her Preface to the book.
THE POMPOSITY of her writing is over-
whelming. She constantly refers to her editor
and other authors who disapprove of Prefaces
and make a convincing case; yet she writes
twelve pages' worth.
The Preface did not make sense until I com-
pleted the book and reread it. It should be an
Afterword, and as such is important to the
understanding of all of the works in this col-
I STRUGGLED through the first two stories.
She saved the best for last. "An Education"
and "Usurpation (Other People's Stories)" are
beautifully written.
In "An Education," Ozick tells the story of
a brilliant, hopelessly romantic young female
scholar, who becomes manipulated by a young
glamorous couple which she perceives as per-
fect. Ozick has us too believing in their per-
fection at first.
Then she adeptly and cleverly reveals their
intolerable selfishness and immaturity to the
reader while our young scholar muddles about
confused, and afraid to believe the truth.
I HAVE never read a story like "Usurpa-
tion." The narrator depicts for us the horror
of attending the lecture of a famous writer
who begins to read his new story. She dis-
covers that his story is her story.
That is, he has written the story first.
Characters proceed to compete with each other
in creating stories until the storytellers find
themselves actually living one another's stories.
Miss Ozick has a tremendous background
in the classics, humanities and Jewish litera-
SHE DEMANDS that her reader meet this
knowledge to taste the full measure of her
writing. Her writing is lyrical, intelligent and
Each one of those stories or novellas, con-
tains a Jewish theme, none of which is de-
rogatory toward Jews.
It is obvious that they are written by a
committed Jew a Jew who has a right to
criticize Saul Bellow's denials and fears. Cyn-
thia Ozick is truly a first quality Jewish writer.
England, France and Italy
Due (or Mexican Treatment

FNGLAND, France and Italy voted against
Israel at the recent Security Council ses-
sion. That is to say they voted for the PLO.
Shouldn't these countries be given the
"Mexico treatment"? Remember, Mexico voted
against Israel and fa revulsion thousands of
tourists cancelled their reservations. Why
should we visit countries which vote against a
democratic nation?
THAT VOTE, which was vetoed by the
U.S., meant, in effect, that these three so-called
civilised nations participated in maligning the
State of Israel.
Israel does not oppress the Arabs. The
only well-off Arabs fa the world are in the
Jewish country.
The recent uprising of the Arabs in Israel
was fomented by Communists and by PLO-
oiks. It is, alas, the condition of a democratic
country to expect people to stage protests, as
this country has experienced pretests for
But you won't find protests fa Saudi Ara-
bia, Egypt, Iraq, Syria (to spite of Mike Wal-
lace's libels), Libya.
THEY'D BE forcefully squelched in those
despotic lands.
And that selfsame Security Council did not
exhibit any shock over the slaughter going on
in Lebanon So why should Jews (or any de-
cent people) tour England, France, and Italy?
Let those countries get oodles of cancelled
reservations, as Mexico did before that nation
reversed its position.
If you must travel, see the U.S. during
this milestone year. Or visit that other splen-
did democracy, the State of Israel,

NOW THAT the ex-Nazi who wanted to
be head of the Roterians has withdrawn, may
I have a word to the matter?
I rejoice that the outcry against the man,
whose name I don't care to remember, result-
ed to the end of his candidacy.
It is a repulsive thing that a Hitlerite
should have risen so Ugh to the echelons of a
fine service agency like Rotary.
IT 18 good to note that revulsion against
him resulted to Us being unhorsed.
But there was a missing ingredient to the
lamentable contretemps.
What was missing was any sign of re-
morse on the part of the former Nazi.
PERSONALLY, I am ready to forgive a
man who has done wrong. The Jewish faith
revolves around the belief that an individual
may atone for his faults, if he repairs bis char-
acter after admitting his sin.
But to all the tararam around the man
who was about to head up Rotary there was
not a single indication that he regretted be-
ing linked with murderers.

Ford Still Opposes Israel Aid
Reports that President Ford
appeared agreeable to a
compromise on additional
military assistance funding
for Israel to cover the tran-
sitional quarter between fis-
cal years 1976 and 1977,
seemed to have been quash-
ed here.
White House sources said
that the President has not
changed his position against
foreign aid funding for Israel
for the three-month period
July 1-Sept. 30 and, in ad-
dition, the Republican Con-
gressional leadership in-
dicated he may even veto
the authorization legislation
because he feels it is too
restrictive on him.
FORD HAD previously said
'he would veto an appropria-
tions measure that included
funds for Israel and other coun-
tries, among them Egypt. But
Rep. Robert Michel (R -111) told
reporters that the President had
"grave concerns" about the au-
thorization measure which sets
the policy on foreign aid.
Michel was one of the Repub-
lican Congressional leaders who
met with Ford at the White
House this morning. Talking to
newsmen there after the meet-
ing, he said that the President
had real concern about both
the authorization and appro-
priations measures.
According to Michel, Ford
felt that the authorization legis-
lation limited the President's
authority on matters in which
he feels he has the prerogative
rather than the Congress.
AMONG the provisions of the
authorization legislation to
which Ford objects, it is under-
stood, are a Congressional veto
on military sales either by the
U.S. government or American
companies that exceed $25 mil-
lion; Congressional veto of
transfers of American weapons
by a foreign power to a third
country; and the anti-discrimi-
nation provisions that would
cut off U.S. aid to any country
that discriminates against
Americans on the basis of race,
religion, sex or national origin.
The latter provision was under-
stood to be aimed primarily at
the Arab countries.
According to Michel, the
overall judgment of the Repub-
lican Congressional leadership
is that the President has good
grounds to veto the authoriza-
tion measure.
that the removal of the limita-
tions on Ford's prerogatives
ought to be taken as a preface
to any appropriations bill on
foreign aid.
When asked if that was the
President's feeling. Michel re-
plied that it was the general
consensus of the Republican
When Ford, apparently, sug-
gested to the Republican lead-
ership that the extension of
powers to Congress could be

corrected in the House-Senate
conference on the legislation,
the advice of the leadership
was, according to Michel, that
it would be better to veto the
bill and allow the whole foreign
aid process to be worked out in
the full committees of both
CAPITOL sources that had
molded the foreign aid author-
ization bill which provided for
increased Congressional author-
ity over military programming,
felt they had the agreement of
Administration authorities for
the provisions to which the
Republican leadership apparent-
ly now objects.
The Senate and House were
to vote here on the authoriza-
tion measure which has clear-
ed the Senate-House conference
committee and includes provi-
sions to which some Republi-
cans are now objecting.
Since fiscal 1976 ends in two
months, a veto by the Presi-
dent would probably cause a
situation where no bin for fis-
cal 1976 may be prepared be-
fore the vear is over.
WHAT WOULD happen in
such circumstances to the com-
mitments made to foreign coun-
tries on the basis of anticipated
assistance Israel, for exam-
ple, expecting $2.2 billion for
fiscal 1976 and additional fund-
ing for the transitional quarter
is problematical.
White House sources told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency to-
day that Ford's feelings on the
transitional quarter remain the
same and that he hat not
changed his position against the
