missing Air France hijack

Reviewing the events sur-
rounding the apparent murder of
the 75-year-old widow, who held

House Acts on
Arab Boycott
WASHINGTON (JTA) Another strong
measure has advanced in Congress to counter the Arab
economic boycott against Israel and discrimination
against American Jews and companies doing business
with Israel.
The House, by a voice vote,
and without dissent, adopted an
amendment last week to the
International Banking Act that
requires foreign banks, in their
operations in the United States,
to adhere to national and state
civil rights laws in the same
manner as American banks. They
will not be permitted to do busi-
ness in the U.S. unless they agree
to comply with these laws. The
amendment has gone to the
Senate for approval.
The Jewish Telegraphic
Agency was informed by the
House Subcommittee on
Financial Institutions led by
Rep. Fernand St. Germain (D.,
R.I.) that about 50 foreign banks
operate in more than one state,
and approximately the same
number within one state. Under
the amendment, all would be
covered by federal and state laws
that bar discrimination on
grounds of race, religion or sex.
amendment aimed at stopping
Arab boycott-related discrim-
ination is Rep. James J.
Blanchard (D., Mich.), a first-
term Congressman who declared,
"The boycott has involved re-
ligious discrimination against
persons of the Jewish faith."
, That kind of discrimination "has
no place in the United States," he
Blanchard noted that James
Smith, U.S. Comptroller of the
Currency, last year notified all
banks in the nation that some
might have been offered loans by
foreign investors on the condition
that "no member of the Jewish
faith sit on the bank's board of
directors or control any sig-
nificant amount of stock."
Smith's letter warned against co-
operating with such offers.
Blanchard also cited the
testimony of a Commerce
Department lawyer that some
American firms have reported
receiving requests to engage in
religious discrimination in con-
nection with the boycott and he
mentioned the refusal of former
Secretary of Commerce Rogers
Morton to deliver to Congress
information on compliance by
U.S. firms with the Arab boycott.
The purpose of his amendment,
Blanchard said, is "to clarify the
views of Congress on dis-
crimination, for all of those both
in this country and abroad who
are uncertain about our in-
tentions." Enforcement of his
amendment would be put in the
hands of bank regulatory
agencies such as the Federal
Reserve System.
Earlier last week the Senate
adopted a provision in its Tax
Reform Act that would bar a tax
benefit to American concerns
that boycott Israel and business
executives would face up to a
year in jail if they failed to report
any earnings in any country that
requires participation in a
boycott. These provisions were
adopted 86-1 and are now in the
House for its consideration.
"The events of recent weeks have
again demonstrated that it is not
possible for our High Com
mission effectively to discharge
its normal duties" in Uganda.
He said the High Commission
had made repeated inquiries as to
the whereabouts of Mrs. Bloch,
who was last seen in a Kampala
hospital a day after Israeli com-
mandos rescued more than 100
hijack hostages held by pro-

JWV Convention
Israel Ambassador to the U.S.
Simcha Dinitz will address the
guests at the commander's
banquet, Saturday evening, Aug.
21, which culminates the week-
long 81st annual national con-
vention of the Jewish War
Veterans of the U.S.A.
JWV national commander
Judge Paul Ribner of
Philadelphia said Dinitz heads a
list of prominent guests who are
attending the convention, which
began on Aug. 15. They include
Treasury Secretary William E.
Simon, U.S. Army Chief of Staff
Gen. Fred C. Weyand, and
Milton E. Mutler, Special As-
sistant to the President for Bi-
centennial Affairs.
Prior to the general sessions, at
which 1,500 delegates were ex-
pected, the JWV policy com-
mittee and national executive
committee were to convene.
Lebanese Ignore
El Fatah Threats
Lebanese workers came into
Israel this week despite threats
from El Fatah terrorists. One of
the workers said armed Palestine
Liberation Organization agents
came into his village and
threatened to lull all of the in-
habitants if they continue to go
to work in Israel.
In response, all of the Maronite
Christians in the village armed
themselves and guarded the
village through the night. All of
the 17 workers who came to
Israel Monday work at the
Dubek Cigarette Company's
sorting plant, which is expected
to employ about 40 Lebanese vil-
lagers, while another 150 will
work for the Jewish National
Palestinian terrorists at Entebbe
Airport. "They all got nowhere
without Uganda's cooperation
and there is no sign that this is
forthcoming," Crosland said.
Crosland expressed hope that
the break would be only tem-
porary. The move, however, is
overwhelmingly supported in
Parliament and among the

Ex-Nazis on Trial For
Murdering Polish Jews
BONN (JTA) Six for-
mer Gestapo members went on
trial in Hannover Aug. 3 on
charges of being accomplices of
the murder of 2,481 Polish Jews.
The murders took place at the
end of 1942 in the city of Bilgoraj
near Lublin.
The city's Jews were told they
were going to be "resettled" in
the Soviet Union, but instead
were "brutally herded together"
and taken to the Belzec con-
centration camp. The prosecutor
said that many of the Jews were
killed before they reached iae
Three of the accused are also
charged with ordering mass
executions in 1942 and 1943
intended as revenge for attacks
by Polish partisans and the
killing of Jews unfit for work.
One of the three, Friedrich
Keller, is alleged to actually have
carried out the murders.
Gush Emunim fressuring
For Settlement Permit
Gush Emunim attempt to get to
Jericho on Aug. 2 appears not to
have been an actual attempt at
establishing an illegal settlement
but a means of putting pressure
on the ministerial committee for
settlement to approve a Jewish
settlement near Jericho.
This was the demand of some
30 followers of Gush Emunim
who demonstrated near the
Prime Minister's Office as the
committee headed by Minister-

was meeting. Religious Affairs
Special WZO Report
Zionism in Action: Yordim Go Home
7,000 of the estimated 300,000
Israelis living abroad are expected
to return to Israel this year with the
help of the World Zionist
Organization. This was estimated in
a 16-page report by a special WZO
unit dealing with returning Israelis.,
The unit is headed by Eli Paz, who
is also the advisor to Yosef Almogi,
chairman of the WZO Executive.
The report, which was discussed
by the WZO Executive Aug. 2,
noted that the proportions of
returning Israelis among all Jews
settling in Israel has been going up.
Yordim accounted for 26.6 percent
in 1973 and reached nearly 46*
percent last year. The returning
Israeli is likely to be in his thirties,
with a better-than-average
education and a professional in the
fields of engineering, science or the
liberal arts. ^
The report estimated that ou

Minister Yitzhak Rafael prom-
ised the demonstrators he would
ask the committee to approve a
settlement near Jericho. Later,
Galili said the matter would be
discussed at the committee's
next meeting.
A drive to Jericho by some 200
supporters of Gush Emunim was
stopped when the army put up
roadblocks, forcing the ultra-
nationalist group to try to make
it on donkey and camel paths.
One truckload of 60 Gush fol-
lowers did get near Jericho and
tried to put up some tents. But
the soldiers dismantled the tents
and all the militants agreed to re-
turn to Jerusalem.
Israeli Sixth in
Olympic Hurdles
Esther Roth, Israel's top entry in
the 1976 Olympics, finished sixth
in the women's 100-meterhurdles
but set a new Israeli record of
13.04 seconds. This beat her
semi-finals time of 13.06 seconds,
which had bettered her previous
record of 13.09 seconds. Ms.
Roth, 24, was the only member of
the 1972 Israeli Olympics team,
11 of whose members were mas-
sacred by Arab terrorists in
Munich, on the current Israeli

public. Amin's claim that Mrs.
Bloch had been returned to the
airport before the rescue occurred
and therefore was the respon-
sibility of the Israelis was seen
here as patently false inasmuch
as an official of the High Com-
mission visited her at Mulago
Hospital on July 4, a day after
the rescue.
The subsequent expulsion of
that official and of Acting High
Commissioner James Horrocks
from Uganda and the harass-
ment of his replacement con-
stituted a series of provocations
that led to the breach. The breach
means that Britain has given up
any hope of ascertaining the fate
of Mrs. Bloch from the Amin
regime. France has agreed to look
after British interests in Kam-
The government had delayed
that step out of concern for the
safety of the 500 British subjects
resident in Uganda at the time of
the hijacking. There weie still
some 200 Britons in Uganda and,
for their sake, Crosland called for
"some restraint in language." He
tressed that "We have no
quarrel with the people of
Uganda and we look forward to
the time when it may be possible
to renew our relationship."
Rossmoor Coconut
Creek Is Growing
Rossmoor Coconut Creek, the
adults-only community being de-
veloped by Rossmoor Corp. on a
600-acre site between Pompano
Beach and Margate, continues at
a steady rate with sales in excess
of $21 million and construction in
its fifth stage.
Construction at Rossmoor
Coconut Creek, located a half-
mile west of the Florida Turnpike
Exit 24, began in 1973 with the
304 condominium apartments of
Bahama Village.
Rossmoor's prices range from
$21,900 to $45,500, and six dif-
ferent condominium floor plans
are available. There is no recrea-
tion or land lease, and all deposits
are placed in escrow to bear in-
terest to the purchaser at the
existing passbook rate.
A total-environment com-
munity, Rossmoor has a $2.5
million clubhouse and recrea-
tional center, 18-hole golf course,
tennis courts, three swimming
pools, cycling and jogging paths,
a health services center, com-
munity-owned transportation
system and many other features
and facilities.

ovitz, the facility will be located
at a focal point on Academy
grounds, midway between the
Protestant and the Catholic
chapels, overlooking the parade
grounds and the Hudson River.
Its stonework and architecture
will be the color and character of
that used in the Cadet chapel and
other Academy buildings.
The Jewish chapel will include
classrooms, a library, a gallery-
museum and a seminar room in
addition to the sanctuary and
rabbi's quarters. The library and
the gallery-museum will house
books, manuscripts and other
items noting military services of
Jewish alumni and non-alumni.
Among them was Simon Levy,
one of two men commissioned
second lieutenants in the
Academy's first graduating class
in October, 1802.
The construction of a West
Point Jewish chapel has been dis-
cussed by Jewish alumni of the
Academy for nearly two decades.
In mid-1975 an ad hoc committee
headed by Herbert M. Ames of
Wilmington, Del., was formed to
organize a campaign. Sub-
sequently a National Advisory
Committee for the West Point
Jewish Chapel Fund came into
existence. Besides Judge Ribner,
its participants include Senators
Jacob K. Javits, Abraham Ribi-
coff and Barry Goldwater.
"The Jewish War Veterans
anticipate playing a major role in
bringing about the construction
of the chapel building," Judge
Ribner said. "We feel this is one
of the most important projects
involving the military.''

Too Many Untruths,
There is reason enough for speculating about
precipitous American intentions in the Middle East.
The most recent is President Ford's praise of the
Palestine Liberation Organization's cooperation in
getting Americans safely out of Lebanon.
What that has led to is the obvious ad-
ministration need to acknowledge that it had been
dealing with the PLO to assure the safe evacuation
this, in clear violation of the understanding that there
would be no such dealings unless the Palestine
Liberation Organization publicly declared itself to
believe that Israel has a right to exist as a free and
independent nation in the Middle East.
The point is that there are simply too many
conflicting statements emerging out of official
Washington on this issue. To put it more crudely,
there are too many lies.
An Explanation Needed
There is a sort of schizophrenia in Mexican
politics these days and also an equivalent
schizophrenia in American Jewish attitudes toward
Mexican politics.
On the one hand, the Mexicans are deeply
disturbed by American Jewish movements to boycott
Mexico as a place to visit because, from time to time,
the Mexicans vote in the United Nations to lambaste
Israel for one reason or another: the most recent, the
"violation" of Uganda's national integrity by Israel's
raid at Entebbe.
American Jews reason, and rightly, that if
Mexico votes to censure Israel, then how about an
equivalent Mexican move to censure Palestinian
terrorism in the skies?
The point here is that Mexico joined the Arab-
Third World-Soviet bloc in the vote against Israel at
the United Nations only weeks after the hatchet had
been buried between Israel and Mexico over Mexico's
previous UN vote the vote equating Zionism with
Where does the schizophrenia on our part come
in? Well, not all American Jews have been motivated
to join tourist boycotts, either in response to the first
flap or now. And to make the matter all the more
confusing, the Israelis themselves do not seem too
concerned about it.
A report last week in the semi-official daily El
Nacional declares that Israeli and Mexican diplomats
"shook hands" after the Mexican Foreign Ministry
explained Mexico's most recent Entebbe vote at the
We wish someone would also please explain all
this to us.
100,000Signatures Urge
Freedom for Soviet Jews
NEW YORK (JTA) A wheelbarrow loaded with petitions
signed by 100,000 Americans urging freedom for Soviet Jews was
rolled to the front door of the Soviet Mission to the United Nations
July 29 in a demonstration protesting the USSR's failure to adhere to
the principles of the Helsinki agreement. The Helsinki Accord, signed
by 35 nations a year ago, committed the signators to strive to achieve
a "freer flow of people and ideas" across national boundaries.
The petition, addressed to Soviet Communist Party Secretary
Leonid I. Brezhnev, calls for freeing all Jewish Prisoners of Conscience
incarcerated in labor camps and prisons for their desire to leave for
Israel; forbidding all existing forms of persecution of Jews, who have
expressed the wish to be united with their families and their own
people; and allowing the "refuseniks" to leave the Soviet Union
and emigrate.

Volume 5
Friday, August 20,1976
Number 17
21 AB R786
These are stormy days for the
folks who want to see job and
educational discrimination ended
without the imposition of dat ole
debbil, the quota system.
Sen. James L. Buckley (R.,
N.Y.) recently introduced a bill to
prohibit federal government im-
position of job quotas in re-
quiring unions, universities, and
business to achieve job equality
for women (a majority group) and
members of minority groups.
In the same season, Dr.
Nathan Glazer, professor of
education and social structure at
Harvard, has blasted away at
certain governmental efforts for
achieving equality of opportunity
by bringing forth an important
book with the easy-to-forget title
of "Affirmative Discrimination:
Ethnic Inequality and Public
BUCKLEY HAS armed him-
self with a dossier of hundreds of
complaints about quotas sent to
him from all over the country. He
still boasts of his support of the
Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964
(and undoubtedly agrees with
Lyndon Johnson's sage comment
of that era: "Until we overcome
unequal history, we cannot over-
come unequal opportunity."!.
The New York Senator doesn't
blame Congress for the heartache
and squabbling over Affirmative
Action, Preferential Treatment,
Outright Quotas and all other ef-
forts to compensate for Amer-
ica's past bad record of dis-
crimination. He scores Washing-
ton bureaucrats.
Prof. Glazer, whose achieve-
ments include co-authorship with
Daniel Patrick Moynihan of the
highly-valued textbook, "Beyond
the Melting Pot," also scolds
federal functionaries for panting
after "statistical parity" in the
effort to slice discriminatory
PROPERLY respected for his
efforts to secure the civil rights of
all Americans, he now shares the
dismay of civil service employes,
educators, hard hats, and
numerous others who claim they
are trampled by directives from
Washington. Ironically, a part of
his reward consists of being
idolized by intellectuals on the
Much of the trouble began with
slavery, was aggravated by
xenophobia (especially in the era
of the inflow of millions of
Eastern Europeans), and is now
further compounded by jobless-
ness during the recession.
Always expecting more from
the economy, tempted into ex-
travagance by television com-
mercials, and irate over "forced
school busing" alongside the pro-
temporary chairman.
THE REAGAN forces, con-
centrating on the nomination,
have not spelled out their
positions on matters of high Jew-
ish interest. A group led by Peter
Hannaford of Los Angeles is re-
ported preparing them. However,
expressions by Regan and his
running mate, Pennsylvania
Senator Richard Schweiker,
would indicate their firm backing
for Israel and emigration rights
for Soviet Jews and others.
Reagan, who four years ago re-
ceived an Israeli award from the
then Foreign Minister Abba
Eban, challenged the Ad-
ministration's position on Israel
on March 31, saying it was insuf-
ficient for our ally Israel. He also
affirmed in an interview in the
Los Angeles Times that he
favored providing Israel what she
rquires for her security.
Schweiker's voting record, as
JTA has already reported, es-
tablishes him as a stalwart sup-
porter of issues of deep concern to
the American Jewish community,
namely, on foreign policy mat-
ters, including the Arab boycott.
Ford's own position on the "Jew-
ish issues" is on the public record
he has established over his pant
two years in the White House.
This includes his advocacy of a
record amount of financial aid to
Israel more than $4 billion
over 27 months ending in Sep-
tember of next year.
A forecast of what will appear
in the Republican platform about
Jewish issues was indicated by
the New York State Republican
Chairman, Richard M. Rosen-
baum, who is seeking planks
"supporting Israel's security,
strength and integrity" and "free
emigration for Soviet Jewry."
Rosenbaum said in a recent
press statement that he has re-
ceived the support of the 24-
member Northeastern U.S.
Republican State Chairmen's As-
sociation, which he heads, and
that he recently discussed the
proposals with Ford and top Re-
publican and Presidential aides
at the White House. According to
Rosenbaum's statement, his pro-
posals would have a Republican
Administration "continue to
work for progress toward a
permanent peace settlement" in
the Middle East.
"THE U.S.," his statement
says, "should strive for an end to
economic boycotts, the free pas-
sage of the ships of all nations
through the international water-
ways of the area, and, in ac-
cordance with United Nations
Security Council Resolution 338,
the terms of a peace settlement
should ultimately be negotiated
directly between the parties in-
volved in the conflict." He also
urges "appropriate military
equipment" for Israel to main-
tain the power balance and
economic assistance to "relieve
its economy overburdened with
defense expenditures.''
The Rosenbaum proposals also
would "provide economic and de-
velopment assistance to such
moderate states as Egypt to aid
in their social and economic de-
velopment and develop stronger
trade ties." They "recognize the
responsibility of the world com-
munity for a just solution to the
problems of Palestinian
refugees" to be resolved within
the "context of an overall Middle
East settlement while continuing
the current policy of not dealing
with any Palestinian group
unless it accepts both Israel's
right to exist and UN Security
Council Resolutions 242 and
His proposals support "a
united status for Jerusalem and
free access to all holy places
which now is provided to all
faiths." He does not call for
moving the American Embassy
from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Ford
set aside that idea in his first
news conference as Chief Execu-
tive, and Presidential news sec-
retary Ron Nessen reiterated that
position several weeks ago.
Regarding Soviet-related
matters, the Rosenbaum
proposals urge the Soviet
government to "immediately
cease the coercion, intimidation,
arrest and trial of Soviet Jews
who seek to emigrate to Israel in
accordance with the Helsinki
Jewish Groups Support
Sabbath Observer Case
ish organizations, representing
almost the entire gamut of Amer-
ican Jewish life, have filed
friends-of-the-court briefs with
the United States Supreme Court
in support of a Seventh-Day Ad-
ventist in a case that is expected
to have a major effect on employ-
ment protection for Jews who ob-
serve the Sabbath.
One brief was filed by Leo
Pfeffer, special counsel to the
American Jewish Congress, who
will represent the Jewish organ-
izations who are members of the
Joint Advisory Committee of the
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council and
the Synagogue Council of Amer-
ica; another brief was filed by
Nathan Lewin, who will represent
the National Jewish Commission
on Law and Public Affairs
(COLPA), of which he is a vice
The case involves the con-
stitutionality and interpretation
of a 1972 amendment to the U.S.
Civil Rights Law which requires
employers to "reasonably accom-
modate to an employe's or
prospective employe's religious
observance or practice without
undue hardship on the conduct of
the employer'8 business."
Paul Cummins, a member of the
World-Wide Church of God,
which observes the Sabbath on
Saturday, was fired from his job
as supervisor with the Parker
Seal Co. of Berea, Ky., when two
other supervisors complained
that they had to work on Satur-
day while Cummins refused to do
A federal district court ruled
that under these circumstances,
the employer was justified in
firing Cummins on the grounds of
' undue hardship." The U.S.
Court of Appeals reversed this
finding, holding that the
grumbling" of other employes
does not constitute "undue hard-
ship" and cannot be the basis for
terminating an employe.
The court also rejected the em-
ployer's claim that the "undue
hardship" rule itself waft uncon-
stitutional because it "advances"
religion in violation of the First
Amendment ban on "establish-
ment of religion" since it required
employers to defer to their em-
ploye's religious preference. The
company then appealed to the
Supreme Court.
According to the brief filed by
Pfeffer, the Jewish organizations
entered the case "not only
because Mr. Cummins observes
the seventh day of the week as
his Sabbath but also because we
believe that the principle of re-
ligious liberty is impaired if any
person is penalized for adhering
to any religious belief, so long as
he neither interferes with the
rights of others or endangers the
public peace or security.''
preme Court affirm the in-
terpretation of the "undue hard-
ship" rule by the Court of
Appeals, Lewin noted that if the
objections of other employes are
now to be deemed a dispositive
consideration then "no protection
can ever be afforded to a con-
scientious Sabbath observer, for
by definition, such religionists
will be absent during the period
of their Sabbath and if the busi-
ness is ever in operation at those
times, others will feel that they
alone are being asked to work."

Mideast, Palestine High On Assembly Agenda
The "Situation in the
Mideast" and the "Question of
Palestine" are among the first
issues to be discussed by the up-
coming General Assembly sched-
uled to convene Sept. 21. The
provisional agenda of the 31st
General Assembly contains so far
119 items for consideration. The
"Question of Palestine" is item
27 and the "Situation in the Mid-
east" item 29.
In discussing the Palestinian
question, the Assembly will be
presented with the Report of the
Committee on the Exercise of the
Inalienable Rights of the Pales-
tinian People, which recommends
the creation of a Palestinian state
under the rule of the PLO. It also
calls for Israeli withdrawal from
all Arab territories by June, 1977.
Meanwhile, Israeli and
Western diplomats are waiting to
see what sort of action the Arabs
will take at the conference of the
Non-Aligned countries in Colom-
bo later this month.
The PLO has already started a
campaign calling on Third World
countries to impose economic and
political sanctions against Israel.
Diplomats here say that the
Arabs will also seek support at
the conference for their drive to
oust Israel from the UN. Last
year the Arabs did not succeed in
their effort to obtain the Non-
Aligned countries' support to
suspend Israel's UN

to Secretary General Kurt Wald-

fire on Syrian civilians working
their fields on June 21.
In a letter to Waldheim, the
Acting Permanent Repre-
sentative of Israel to the UN,
Ambassador Pinhas Eliav,
termed the Syrian charges
"untrue" and contended that
"the only firing by Israeli forces
in the area in question on that
date was a routine weapon test
during which, in compliance with
standing orders, the shots were
all directed west of Line A and in
no case into Syrian territory.
"This is borne out by the
UNDOF investigation," the
Israeli representative said. Eliav
accused Syria with an attempt
"to inflate a routine and insig-
nificant weapons test into an
international incident while Syria
is engaged in a massive military
intervention in Lebanon.

Superb and Splendorous Film EnvoysAsked forInfo0n
Missing Chilean Jews
A charming, whimsical, color-
ful movie premiered here re-
cently. But, sadly, "The Jewish
Gauchos" departed before most
people knew it had arrived.
To a large extent, the critics,
with their snide, sarcastic re-
views, sent it on its way. Re-
ferring to it as "pablum on the
pampas," one said: "And one
must believe that all it takes to
|*make an epic, is aa many charac-
,**ters as possible doing as much
is possible for aa little time as
^possible so that more can be
done by more characters."
Thus, at the mere whim of a
crotchety critic, the movie "bit
the dust" and never had a real
chance of survival.
THE SAME chap raved about
"Hester Street." Why? It showed
one Jewish husband in an un-
favorable light, depicting him as
immoral and adulterous, sending
for his family and then asking for
a divorce to marry a woman he
had consorted with, while his wife
was still in the Old Country.
But in the case of "The Jewish
Gauchos," there is warmth, and
tenderness and love. It's a beau-
tiful experience to be shared by
everyone who has ever been an
immigrant, or a descendant ot

Argue How To
Fight Racism
jfvisions on the way to fight the
-- upsurge of racism surfaced July
25 at the Board of Deputies of
British Jews. A decision by the
last meeting of the Board to par-
ticipate in an anti-racist demon-
stration organized by the Indian
Workers Association was criti-
cized by a number of Board mem-
bers, especially those represent-
ing the Herut Party.
The heated debate was sparked
by Herat's decision to write to
the press, disassociating itself
from the participation in the
demonstration. One deputy criti-
cized Herut for "washing our
dirty linen in public," while
another questioned what Herat's
stand on racism would have been
") 'J!jk had not been a Jewish body.
A Herut spokesman said his
party abhorred racism, but re-
fused to join forces with those
who wished to destroy Israel. De-
fenders of the Board's action said
the Jewish community must
fight alongside those groups
being attacked, even if they
include a "lunatic fringe" who
tried to tale over demon-
strations. The Jewish com-
munity, with its long experience,
should help the Asian and
African groups fight against
hese elements, too.

widows and old maids. But he
seems to enjoy being made the
center of attraction. He's an ex-
cellent physician, however, and
when a young woman with a
heart condition tells him she has
been warned not to go through
with her pregnancy, he instills
such courage and determination
in her that even her husband is
amazed at her constant cheer-
Pride and honor are ever-
present in the movie. Especially
poignant is the situation of a
father who witnesses a knife-fight
between his young, inexperienced
son, and a repugnant, devious
fellow who tries to discredit the
THE SON flinches as his
opponent slashes out at him. The
father, believing his son is acting
cowardly, steps into the fight,
and without any warning,
plunges a knife into his own
progeny. The impact of his action
is shattering.
However, there is a touch of
romance and gaiety, as a
beautiful girl is matched up with
the ponderous, unattractive son
of a wealthy family. She has no
desire to marry him, and when
her true love shows up at the
wedding, she flees the wedding
party and rides away, sidesaddle,
with the man of her choice.
A bewildered, brooding bride-
groom is convinced "it's better
that way" and he accedes to the
wishes of the rabbi to grant his
vanished bride a divorce.
MEANWHILE, the young
mother gives birth to a bouncing,
healthy boy, the first-born in the
new colony. The extraordinary
performance of the expectant
mother (famous singer Gina-
maria Hidalgo) is one of the high-
lights of the film.
Her voice is lyrical and crystal
clear and it is understandable
why she has won virtually every
award and commendation for ar-
tistic performances in Argentina
including three"MartinFierro's"

At the conclusion of the movie,
the new immigrants have been
accepted by their neighbors, to
live in peace and harmony, and
enjoy being Jewish Gauchos.

thropist Baron Hirsch, who had

"THE JEWISH Gauchos" is
rich in tradition, and haunting in
spiritual and moral values. Item-
bodies an aura of contentment
and conviviality, set against a
background of immeasurable
beauty in breadth and scope.
How anyone could fail to be
charmed by its color and
choreography, its lilting songs
and dances, is a complete
mystery. Yet, for all its magical
values, "The Jewish Gauchos"
was doomed to oblivion by the
crudity and "chutzpah" of
certain critics.
Nevertheless, accolades are
due to Julio Tanjeloff Produc-
tions, for a job well done in
bringing the film to us. Given a
little more time and a lot more
publicity there may still be a
chance for success for "The
Jewish Gauchos."
Jewish brothers, Julio and
Eduardo Budnik Schwartzman,
disappeared recently in Santiago,
Chile, and are believed to be po-
litical prisoners. They had held
important industrial posts under
the deposed leftist Salvador Al-
lende government and were last
seen on July 22.
Burton S. Levinson, chairman
of ADL's Latin American affairs
department, said, "It is sus-
pected that agents of DINA, the
Chilean military intelligence
agency, took the brothers into
custody because of the similarity
of the Budniks' disappearance
with that of other Chileans."
Authorities there, however, dis-
claimed any knowledge that the
pair is in custody.
Subsequently, a Santiago
newspaper reported that five
political prisoners, arrested on
July 22, had been placed in
Cuatro Alamos Prison. Several
days later, the family received
word that the Budnik brothers
would probably be moved to
Southern Chile.
In an effort to aid the Budnik
family, Levinson said B'nai
B'rith representatives have
appealed to the Chilean Am-
bassadors in the United States
and Canada for information on
the brothers.

BBYO Begins Pilot Program
For Retarded Jewish Teens
A pilot program for mentally
retarded Jewish teenagers estab-
lished by the B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization (BBYO) will begin
in August in South Florida, it
was announced by Alan
Freedman, Florida regional
BBYO director.
Made possible through a grant
from the Foundation of Jewish
Philanthropies, the program will
provide social services and tht
Jewish experience to ap
proximately 15 Jewish boys and
girls from the general community
and the Sunland Training Center
who will comprise the group
initially, Freedman said.
The mentally retarded young-
sters will form their own BBYO
chapter, which will meet weekly
at the Sunland facility in Opa-
"THIS PROGRAM offers a
badly needed service to a
segment of the Miami Jewish
community which has been sadly
overlooked in the past,"
Freedman said. In addition to
planning their own chapter
programs, educational, athletic,
Judaic, social and community
service activities, the group will
select a name for the chapter,
elect officers and conduct regular
business meetings.
Monarch Cruise
Plan Reduces Fares
A new plan enabling children
to cruise to the Bahamas this
summer at a nominal fare when
traveling with two full-fare-pay-
ing adults, has been announced
by Monarch Cruise Lines, Inc.,
which calls the reduced-fare pro-
visions "Family Sail Plan."
The fare became effective with
the June 7 cruise and will con-
tinue through the Sept. 3 Labor
Day cruise on the 23,500-ton
luxury liner SS Monarch Sun's
three- and four-night cruises from
Miami to Nassau and Freeport.
Children traveling with only
one adult can also cruise at
reduced fares: the first child
must pay half the normal rate for
that stateroom, while the second
or third children qualify for the
nominal fare. Children of adults
paying reduced fares under group
rate provisions, however, do not
qualify for the special rates.
Freedman added that the
chapter, at no cost, itf

facilities and will provide trans-
portation for activites off the
center grounds.
This pilot program, the first of
its kind by BBYO in the United
States, is the result of nearly two
years of study and planning by a
group of area B'nai B'rith
leaders, led by Marvin Becker-
man of North Miami Beach,
treasurer of the B'nai B'rith
Council of South Florida Lodges.
The program will be supervised
by Mark Glansberg, newly
appointed BBYO program
assistant, assisted by Sunland
superintendent Tom Sullivan;
Darlene Farrell, director, of
volunteer services at Sunland;
professionals from several Jewish
communal agencies as well as
agencies presently serving the

Report Kahane
Is Beaten
Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of
the Jewish Defense League, was
attacked and beaten by three un-
identified assailants on a dark
Jerusalem street, it was reported
here by a spokesman for Kahane.
The spokesman said that the
JDL founder, who recently
formed a new political group in
Israel called "Kach," which will
seek Knesset seats in the next
election, had held a press con-
ference during which he criticized
the government for endangering
the lives of the Jews in Israel.
ACCORDING to the spokes-
man, Kahane was walking on
Manna Street in the Tel Arza
section of Jerusalem after leaving
a class he had given to students
participating in a JDL leadership
course when he was assaulted.
The assailants left Kahane
bleeding and wounded and fled
from the scene when an
automobile happened to pass by,
the spokesman said.
Kahane was reportedly taken
to the nearest Red Magen David
aid station, where he was treated
for cuts and bruises on his head
and elbow.

ALMOGI SAID that 85 per-
cent of the yordim continue to
identify themselves as Israelis
living abroad temporarily who
expect to return home. He said
because of the decline in aliya,
the yordim must be regarded
as a valuable source of settlers.
Almogi urged the public not
to label them as deserters since
this might alienate them. He was
apparently hinting at criticism of

Israelis who left before the Six-
Day War because of economic
conditions and those who left
after 1967, when conditions were
better but wanted to seek ad-
venture. He opposed helping the
yordim organize themselves
abroad since this might give their
continued absence from Israel a
mark of legitimacy.

South African Minister
Reveals Israel Visit
Foreign Ministry has confirmed
that Stephanus Botha, South
African Minister for Mining and
Labor, had visited Israel in late
July. The visit was supposed to
have been kept secret but was
revealed by Botha in an interview
on South African television after
his return home.
Although Botha met with
Premier Yitzhak Rabin, the main
purpose of his visit was talks
with Maim Barlev, Israel's Min-
ister of Commerce and Industry,
about Israel's wish to import
arge quantities of coal from
South Africa. The coal will be
used at the Hadera power

tive differed on whether to
provide material help for return-
ing Israelis. Prof. Raanan Weitz,
head of the WZO's settlement
department, said the returning
Israelis should be given in-
formation about conditions in
Israel but not any privileges not
enjoyed by Israelis who never left
the country.
But Joseph Klarman, head of
youth aliya, said that many o'
the returning yordim had serv<
in the army and contributed
much to the country, and tfiu*
deserved help. Andre Nabroni,
head of the Sephardi com-
munities department, said that
most of the Oriental Jews who
left Israel charged that there was
discrimination against them.
Even if the charges were not true,
"the mere fact that they were
raised requires us to show them
they were wrong," he said.
AVRAHAM Shenker, head of
the information and organization
department, admitted that there
are a substantial number of
yordim in senior positions in the
Zionist Federations throughout
the world. He said that while
they can make contributions, it
would be unwise to allow them to
take part in the efforts 'to en-
courage aliya since they an

Almogi said while yordin*
should not be attacked, they
should not be employed by WZO
agencies. He also opposed
helping them organize since "any
organization may make staying
abroad easier for the yordim and
we want them back in Israel."

um Medical school to Run Agnew Facing a Libel Suit
ogram for the Overweight
The University of Miami
School of Medicine has an-
ounced that it will supervise and
iirect a "Dietary Behavioral
Center" at Miami's Everglades
lotel, beginning Nov. 1.
The Center will pioneer a
lultidimensional program for
imbating problems of over-
weight, emphasizing behavior
iification. Formulated by
ledical teams at the UM, the
utilizes modern prin-
ces of psychology, nutrition,
exercise and recreational activity
to achieve weight reduction and
'teach" overweight patients how
to avoid regaining unhealthy
Dietary Behavorial Center will
operate under auspices of the
university in association with a
Drivate group headed by Miami
attorney Richard Essen. A UM
School of Medicine faculty merri-
er will serve as medical director.
Under the program, two years
in planning, participants will
Tenter the Center for a minimum
tour-week dietary retraining
eriod, during which they will
|ive at the hotel. Activities, on a
iill-time basis, will be supervised
by a staff of experts in the medi-
cal, psychological, nutritional
|nd recreational fields.
"THIS IS A NEW concept
In behavior modification," said
Essen, "because it not only en-
ables people to lose weight, but it
prepares them to cope with the
Stresses of the real world en-
vironment. The principal goal of
pur program is to educate and
imdition the patient, physically
and psychologically, so that he or
;he is able to return home and
>ntinue to lose weight and
maintain that weight loss."
Essen noted that no pills or
igs are involved in behavior
edification. Patients will be
laced on a basic calorie-
i's trie ted diet and "structured"
the habit of eating three
balanced meals a day. Menus will
consist of a varied diet of taste-
fully prepared food tailored by
the Center's nutritionists to meet
individual requirements.
Other aspects of the program
include instruction in food-
buying and a "teaching kitchen,"
where classes will be held on how
to prepare delicious low-calorie
Those on the program will
meet daily in small groups with
psychologists for behavior
modification sessions. Food
intake, activity and stress levels
are charted and utilized by UM
physicians in effecting changes in
eating behavior patterns.
A recreational therapist and
social director will oversee a com-
plete schedule of activities which
includes learning new hobbies
and skills, instructions in arts
and crafts and visits to concerts,
athletic events, beaches and
other South Florida attractions.
Nightly entertainment will be a
regular feature at the Everglades.
under direction of the UM's
cardiology staff, will include
operation of special cardiological
stress tests to determine how
much physical activity is ap-
propriate for each individual.
"We plan to utilize the ad-
joining Bayfront Park in this
part of the program," said Essen.
"Those on the program will take
supervised daily walks through
the park and marina. Walking,
for those who are able, is a most
important exercise for over-
weight persons."
Upon entering the program,
each patient will undergo a series
of tests at the UM School of
Medicine, including a complete
historical and psychological pro-
file and physical examination, as
well as baseline hematological
and chemical profiles, urinalysis,
chest and abdominal X-ray
studies and electrocardiography.
Rabbi Henry Siegman, AOUBWDIiiS
Synagogue Council of **
executive vice president of the Synagogue
America, announced July 29 that he will press a libel
action against former Vice President Spiro T. Agnew for
falsely attributing to him "malicious views" with regard
to Israel's treatment of Arabs in the occupied territories.
Prof. Siegman said Alan
Dershowitz of the Harvard Uni-
versity Law School will represent
him in the libel action. Siegman
referred to a newsletter titled
"Memoranda," published by
Education for Democracy, a tax-
exempt educational foundation
recently acquired by Agnew
being used by him to disseminate
anti-Israel, pro-Arab material.
In an article titled "Mideast
Time Bomb," published in the
first issue of "Memoranda,"
Agnew claimed that Siegman
"roundly criticized Israel for the
treatment of Arabs living in the
territories conquered in the 1967
war." In a statement issued July
29, Siegman said: "The state-
ment attributed to me by Spiro
Agnew is a total fabrication, a
deliberate and malicious false-
hood. The fact is that not only
have I never said or written any
such thing, but I have denounced
those who have leveled such
reckless charges against Israel
"It is the height of malice to
criticize Israel for alleged mis-
treatment of Arabs in the oc-
cupied territories when, in fact,
Israel in the most trying of
circumstances has shown a
regard for human and civil rights
that is unheard of in the Arab
states that are Agnew's clients.
Agnew's attribution of such
malicious views to me is false and
libelous and I am taking steps to
press a libel action against him."
Breira, which describes itself as a
pro-Israel organization that pro-
poses alternative strategies for
achieving Israeli security,
strongly dissociated itself from
the context of the article in
"Memoranda" in which it

quoted. The article said that
Breira "sent an open letter to
Israeli leaders condemning the
'unfortunate killings' of Arabs in
Galilee and deploring 'violations
of civil rights and loss of life' on
the West Bank."
In a statement released here,
Breira declared: "We un-
equivocally denounce such
manipulation of responsible Jew-
ish dissent. While we have been
critical of some Israeli policies,
the characterization of those pol-
icies as synonymous with 'im-
perialism' especially by one so
close to the manipulation of
global power is no less absurd
than similar Soviet and Chinese
characterizations." The Breira
statement added, "Agnew's anti-
Israel and anti-Jewish biases dis-
qualify him as a responsible ad-
vocate for Middle East peace."
The actions by Siegman and
Breira followed a disclosure July
28 by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith that
Agnew, "a convicted felon who
has been engaging in classical
anti-Semitism," has taken con-
trol of Education for Democracy
for the purpose of organizing a
movement to reflect his anti-
Israel, pro-Arab views.
According to Arnold Forster,
ADL's general counsel, the
foundation has been converted
into a membership organization
and has begun publication of
"Memoranda." Forster said a
nationwide mailing is now being
conducted by Agnew, enclosing
the newsletter and membership
application and subscription
forms offering a patron member-
ship for a minimum of $500. For
lesser sums, Agnew is offering
other types of memberships.

defended his right to criticize
Israel while denying he was anti-

The ADL has charged Ag-
new with taking over a tax-
exempt foundation, Education
for Democracy, for the purpose of
organizing a movement to reflect
his anti-Israel, pro-Arab views.
Victor Gold, Agnew's press
secretary when he was Vice
President, appearing on the same
program, took issue with
an article published by
the foundation's newsletter
which criticized the United
States for not going along with a
United Nations General Assem-
bly vote that Gold said "would
have effectively abolished and
done away with Israel."
AGNEW SAID he agreed that
the article was "a biased piece."
But he added, "What I am de-
fending myself against is a
charge of anti-Semitism, not the
fact that I may be biased not
even the fact that I may be wrong
in my opinion."
Agnew repeated his charge
that the major American news
media "favors the Israeli position
and does not in a balanced way
present the other equities." How-
ever, he agreed that major news-
papers were now becoming "a
little more objective."

charging a conspiracy in the

The Wolfson Foundation has
canceled a luncheon, and Marks
and Spencer, run by the Sieff
family, has announced that it will
no longer hold its annual share-
holders meeting at the hotel.
The mass walkout seems to be
a spontaneous reaction to the
Arab takeover rather than an or-
ganized campaign. Some of those
approached by the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency were reluctant to
admit that their change of plans
was connected with the Dor-
chester's new ownership.
They also seemed a trifle sur-
prised, and even relieved, on
being told that they were not the
only group acting in this way.
The hotel itself is trying to play it
all down. "It's all very unneces-
sary. The hotel has changed in no
way," a press officer said. More-
over, there were no signs yet of
the Dorchester's private Jewish
clients deliberately avoiding it.

Volunteers Help United Way
Benefit Many in Community
"Each year one person in five in Broward County is.
served directly by a United Way agency," according to a
recent United Way survey. County Commissioner Jack L.
Moss, the organization's president, comments that "this
survey shows the far-reaching benefit of the United Way
effort in our community."
Funding three dozen agencies
and helping more than 190,000
persons annually, United Way is
governed by volunteers from all
walks of life who study programs,
recommend funding and handle
fund-raising, staff the organ-
ization's day-to-day operations
and help fill gaps in many
federally funded programs.
At a July 29 press conference
called to announce United Way's
1976-77 campaign goals, S. Kelly
Jordan, manager of Sears, Roe-
buck and general campaign
chairman this year for United
Way, announced that the cam-
paign team has committed itself
to an objective of $2,022,250, an
increase of 19.5 percent over last
year's contribution. This, Jordan
say8, "is one of the largest and
most ambitious increases in the
United States."
He noted that in order to
achieve this goal "for human ser-
vices in Broward County ... an
intensified campaign must be
waged to meet the needs of our

New York Jewish Museum
Showing Travelers' Items
The Jewish Museum's perma-
nent collection of Jewish cere-
monial objects is the largest in
the United States and one of the
three most important in the
world. It ranges from pottery
used in the time of Moses to a
Persian synagogue wall of the
16th century to contemporary
silver ceremonial objects created
in the Museum's Tobe Pascher
Workshop for Silversmiths.
One of the newest and most
interesting exhibits at the
museum is a small Judaica
display entitled "The Jewish
Traveler." The compact exhibit
contains many unique and beau-
tiful miniature objects used by
Jews when they traveled.
From Biblical times Jews have
Tay-Sachs Disease
Is Preventable
Tay-Sachs Disease, a de-
generative hereditary disorder
that leads to blindness, motor
disorders and early death, is 100
times more common among Ash-
kenazi (Central European and
Russian) Jewish children than
any other group.
But the disease can be
eliminated. Testing programs at
the University of Miami's Mail-
man Center for Child Develop-
ment, Mount Sinai Medical Cen-
ter, Community Hospital of
South Broward and North Beach
Medical Center in Fort Lauder-
dale screen individuals of child-
bearing age to identify carriers of
the defective gene and monitor
pregnancies where risk has been
traveled on pilgrimages to
Jerusalem, as merchantmen in
search of silk to new and
different parts of the globe. In-
geniously they devised miniature
ceremonial objects for their long
journeys so they could practice
their faith no matter how far from
home they went.
museum contains spice con-
tainers, folding Chanukah lamps,
miniature prayerbooks, a case for
a scribe and a small circumcision
kit. No traveler's bag was com-
plete, however, without an
amulet, which was considered
useful in protecting one from
disease, highway robbers and
other hazards of a journey.
The Jewish Museum exhibit,
which will continue through the
Fall, even contains a miniature
sewing kit with the personal seal
of the woman who owned it. One
other intriguing aspect of the ex-
hibit is the inclusion of part of the
traveler's prayer, which read* in
part, "May it be thy will, O Lord
my God and God of my fathers,
to conduct me in peace, to direct
my steps in peace, to uphold me
in peace, and to lead me in life,
joy and peace unto the haven of
my desire. O deliver me from
every enemy, ambush and hurt
by the way, and from all afflic-
tions that visit and trouble the
world ..." (Daily Prayer Book,
translated by Dr. Joseph Hertz).
The Jewish Museum, under the
auspices of the Jewish Theo-
logical Seminary of America, is at
92nd St. and Fifth Avenue in
New York. ST

an& Baeast CanceR Q*4
IOSE KUSHNER. Breast Cancer: a personal
history and an investigative report. Harcoort
Brace Jovanovich, $10. 400 pp.
iOSE KUSHNER has written a very im-
/poitant book. "Breast Cancer" attempts to
alert all women to the importance of early detec-
tion and to get the best care possible pre- and
This not a book for doctors. It is for the
[layperson, and Mrs. Kushner, a medical jour-
fnalist, purports to inform women about all
surgical alternatives which she has found many
I oncologists (cancer specialists) are not willing to
I inform or perform.
SHE EMPHASIZES the importance of BSE
(Breast Self-Examination), and she charts breast
[cancer risks for American women. Among those
in the high risk group are Jews of European an-
Icestry, whereas Jews of North African or Asian
[ancestries are in the low risk group. The point is
Ito help women determine their risk on the chart,
'and thereby take advantage of finding a breast
cancer early enough to be cured.
j Kushner has done extensive research, as in-
licated by her bibliography, which has been
spared with the average woman in mind. It
Includes articles of substance and authority, but
vhich can be read and understood without a
[medical background.
CHOOSING A doctor is of the utmost im-
Iportance, preferably an oncologist a doctor
I who deals exclusively with cancer patients; and
even more preferably one who deals with breast
icer. Kushner is adamant on this point.
She insists that women who may have breast
cancer should see a cancer specialist and not rely
on family doctors or general surgeons to either
"wait and see" or to perform the surgery itself.
There are only twenty-two oncology or cancer
centers in the country. One of them is the
University of Miami School of Medicine.
"BREAST CANCER" has caused stirs this
year in the medical community for the reason that
the author challenges the quality of care women
receive in America. After comparing our
procedures with those in a variety of European
countries, she concludes that American women
with breast cancer are usually the victims of a
blind one-step biopsy-mastectomy procedure
they do not need.
Kushner provides the msstectomee with
personal observations and informative data on
post-operative recovery, a little discussed aspect
of breast cancer surgery; shopping for clothes;
and the psychological reactions of family and
friends. Kushner's expertise and interest in this
traumatic and oftimes shattering operation
comes from her own experience.
Upon going through a mastectomy herself, she
discovered the need to provide women with
certain basic information which she, as a medical
writer, could research, but which was and is not
easily forthcoming to most breast cancer
One out of every 15 women will develop a
breast cancer sometime in her life. "Breast
Cancer" is a significant step in helping women
determine, understand and be part of their fates
on the surgical table.

these past few days for application to Israel's

To be sure, Israel has not won respect from the
itional blocs that insist on treating the Jewish
fctate with disdain at all times; but it is en-
rtening to note that Chaim Herzog, Israel's
rincipal delegate to the UN, has reported that

AS TO the minor issue: Uganda. The scorn
directed by officials of Kenya against Uganda's
president, General Idi Amin. should serve to
awaken other Third World leaders to the
hypocrisy and cruelty attending so many of
Amin's actions. Stung by Amin's sharp criticism
of any assistance neighboring Kenya may have
given the Israeli rescuers, the Nairobi govern-
ment has openly branded Amin "the world's
greatest dictator, a fascist, a warmonger, and a
The statement out of Nairobi further assailed
the blustering Amin as a troublemaker "whose
meaning of leadership for the last five years has
been savagery, torture and mass murders of
innocent people."
BRANDED "a racist murderer" in the UN by
Daniel Patrick Moynihan last October, Amin has
to his shame put to death at least 100,000 of his
compatriots, according to the boasts of his own
Of far more consequence than the sickening
matter of Gen. Amin's cruelty and duplicity is the
urgent call to the international community to get
on at last with a practical and effective plan for
frustrating potential hijackers, putting an end to
blackmail, designing techniques for rescuing
prisoners of the outlaws, and imposing sanctions
against nations that continue to cooperate with
this new breed of pirates.
At enteBBe

INETY MINUTES at Entebbe," announced by
I Paramount on July 12, based on the factual novel by Uri
Dan and William Stevenson, and written while the events of the
rescue operation by the daring Israeli commandos unravelled only a
week earlier, has a screenplay-by Paddy Chayefsky with Sidney
Lumet set to direct. The book by Dan and Stevenson was published
by Bantam Books July 19.
In making the announcement, David V. Picker admitted that
the Paramount version will be the fourth picture dealing with the
freeing of the hijacked hostages from the Air France plane in
Uganda, but one based on extensive interviews with key Israeli and
military sources who were behind the Entebbe rescue mission.
UNIVERSAL STUDIOS came up with their project "Rescue
at Entebbe" within 24 hours after the news broke on the wire
service. Their epic is being produced and directed by George Roy
Hill, winner of an Acadc.ay Award for "The Sting," previously
lauded for "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "Slaughter-
house Five" and "Hawaii."
Hill is just completing post-production at Universal on "Slap
Shot" starring Paul Newman, but is already at work developing his
dramatization of the commando raid termed the most daring rescue
operation in recent military history.
ANOTHER FEATURE film is being planned by Murray
Schwartz, president of Merv Griffin Production, who by chance
happened to be on the hijacked Air France plane from Athens to
Paris. His epic is being labeled "Odyssey of 139" and should be the
most revealing one since he actually was a bystander to the crime of
the hijackers.
"Assault on Entebbe" is the title of a picture the enterprising
Elliott Kastner is preparing at this time. Producer of many suc-
cessful pictures, Kastner currently is represented on the screen
with "The Missouri Breaks," the Marlon Brando-Jack Nicholson
Western. Kastner employs the services of Shmuel Erde and Geoff
Berkin for the story with Erde joined by Kastner associate Jerry
Gershwin during the actual production of the film. .
UNI VERBAL'S GEORGE Eckstein is producing a three-hour
television film dealing with the shenanigans of the late U.S.
Senator Joseph E. McCarthy and his alleged relations with Joseph
Kennedy and Richard Nixon. NBC is televising the epic entitled,
"Tall Gunner Joe," budgeted at $1.5 million and written by Lane
Slate as a strange contribution to our Bicentennial. .
Lionel Stander, a near-victim of the McCarthy period of
hysteria and a voluntary exile for almost a quarter of a century,
makes his Hollywood comeback in Robert Chartoff and Irwin
Winkler's production for United Artists, "New York, New York,"
thereby joining Liza Minelli who portrays the central character.
Stander plays the part of an artist's agent, almost the same type of
role for which he won an Oscar nomination in the Janet Gaynor-
Frederic March film, "A Star is Born". .
HITLER RIDES AGAIN in the 20th Century-Fox television
spectacular, a three-hour epic for ABC written by Lionel Chetwynd
for executive producer Jack Haley, Jr. The teleplay is based on the
premise that Hitler was captured trying to escape from Berlin in
1945 and subsequently tried for war crimes by an international
court of justice. The intriguing yam, from a story idea by Haley
and Ronald Lyon, is titled "The Capture and Trial of Adolf Hitler."
It will do well in Germany. .
Bette Midler, who rose to fame in the Broadway production of
"Fiddler on the Roof," then dazzled theater and concert audiences
with her renditions of the 1940s, '50s and '60s song hits, and is
today the top singer headlining in nightclubs and television as the
nation's top moneymaker in the recording field, has gone Holly-
wood. She is opening an office at the Burbank studios and
developing her own screenplays fashioned by her and her
production executive Aaron Russo. .
LEE STRASBERG, the almost legendary heed of Actors
Studio, upon return from his motion picture assignment in
"Cassandra Crossing" abroad, has joined 20th Century-Fox TV
and Four Star International in a joint production deal to present a
series of major plays on Broadway.

Some at the United Nations say that while the
rescuing of the hostages is to be commended, the Israeli
action was an aggression against the sovereignty of an
independent state, and so it is to be condemned.
Actually, the beauty of the Israeli action lies in this
very thing. It is the governments who allow
hijackers to land and function on their soil who are as
culpable as the hijackers. They make the hijacking
possible Without the government sanction, most of
them would find it impossible to operate.
In the case of Idi Amin, the collusion between his
government and the hijackers is more palpable Amin
has not only praised Hitler, but imitated him in his
killing of thousands of his own people.

A Thank You
From Larry Berkley
I wish to thank all those children, teens and adults who par-
ticipated in our programs this summer. The Six Days in Summei
children's program was a success. The children had fun, the staff was
exhausted and Mimi Lasker did an excellent job in administering the
overall program.
The Tuesday night "tween" program, started by JCC director
BID Goldstein, grew from eight to over 30 tweens, enjoying themselves
with ping-pong, air hockey, billiards, jukebox playing and arts and
A special thank-you to Sandra Brandt, who patiently directed
and organized the arts and crafts for the tweens.
The "College Mixer" originally started for students who were
visiting or returning to Florida for the summer had its good nights
and slow oies. The last one had over 60 persons in attendance, with
live music and plenty of refreshments. The consensus was that it was a
lot of fun. Thanks to Joan Schnur for her assistance and cooperation
with the College Mixer.
Also, thanks to Ira Blumenthal, who has joined our staff as teen
and tween director. He brings a professional background and the skill
and enthusiasm that make for a tremendous program.
Thank you, ladies, who participated in the slimnastics, cooking,
dance, Yiddish and numerous other activities that go on at the JCC.
And a thank you to the students who attended the yoga and karate
classes we all enjoyed so much.
A very special thank you to Leni, Sandy and Freida, our
secretaries. They were, and are, the backbone of any agency.
If I missed anyone, thank you for a summer that anticipates an
active and meaningful fall with plenty of recreational, educational and
social events. Look for our fall brochure.

courts Sunday mornings from 9
to noon for JCC Athletic Club
Men's racket games.

"Thou shalt set the blessing upon mount Gerizim, and the
curse upon mount Ebal" (Deut. 11.29).
Re'eh "Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and f
curse: the blessing, if ye shall hearken unto the com
mandments of the Lord your God, which I command you
this day; and the curse, if ye shall not hearken'
(Deuteronomy 11.26). When the Israelites enter Canaan,
six tribes are to stand upon Mount Gerizim and bless all
those who will keep God's commandments, and six tribes
are to stand on Mount Ebal and curse all those who will
disobey God's commandments.
Sacrifices are to be offered only in the place that God
shall choose. He who wishes to offer a meat sacrifice which
he may eat; and lives too far from the proper place of of-
fering, may slaughter the offering in his own house, but it
will not be considered a sacrifice. He must be careful not to
consume any of the blood.
Those who incite others to idolatrous acts are to be
exterminated. The portion goes on to state the rules
defining purity and impurity in regard to animals, fish and
fowl the bask ritual dietary laws. The portion also
contains the rules regarding tithes, money moratoria, a
prohibition on interest, and regulations regarding the
Hebrew slave, the first-born of wtnml^ and the three
pilgrim festivals.

allow sufficient time for everyone
to get to know each other.
The elected officers are pres-
ident, Sol Brenner; vice pres-
ident, Mitchell Colman;
treasurer, Barney Muldofsky;

The response to the lunch and
card party has been so over-
whelming that we have decided
to offer it on a regular basis.
A wonderful way to spend the

busy weekend with old friends
and potential new ones.

????Question Box????
Question: Why does Jewish
tradition forbid homosexuality
between two females?
Answer: The rabbis of the
Tannaitic era derived this pro-
hibition from a statement in the
Bible which prohibits Jews from
doing the things which were done
in ancient Egypt and Canaan
(Leviticus 18:3) (Sifra). The Tal-
mud considers such a practice as
obscene (Yebamot 76a).
According to Medieval
authorities, this was even con-
sidered as a form of prostitution.
Maimonides explains that this
was a practice in ancient Egypt
which was frowned upon by Jew-
ish tradition (Yad, Isure Biah
21:8). Women who were engaged
in such practice were forbidden ir
marriage to a High Priesi
Shabbos 65a) and, according to
later authorities, even to any
priest (Tosafot).
Generally speaking, the act
was considered unnatural and not
in accordance with the will of the
Almighty in his design for life on

this earth. The Talmud tells us
that for this reason the Amoraic
scholar, Samuel, did not allow his
daughters to sleep together.
Some claim that the will of the
Almighty is explicitly revealed in
the texts of Holy Books and im-
plicitly revealed in the normal
process of nature. Any attempt
to subvert or pervert the normal
process of nature is considered
lewd and forbidden.
Question: According to
Jewish law, is a patient
allowed to refuse medical
Answer: Generally speaking,
self-destruction is forbidden by
Jewish law. The Bible com-
manded the Jew to "live by
them" (i.e. the ordinances of the
faith) and "not to die." The
Talmud (Pirke Aboth) em
phasizes J,hat a person is "com-
pelled to live" and obligated to
protect that life.
Maimonides states that every^
person is obligated to seek the
advice and treatment of a com-
petent physician. Some sources
state that one who refuses to go
to a doctor is arrogantly violating
the will of the Alniighty, who
wants life, or foolishly relying
upon miracles.
Generally speaking, the bask
contention is that life belongs to
the Almighty and man is obli-
gated to preserve it as a trust
given to him by the Almighty
until He Himself asks for man to
return the life He gave him.
