Soviet Ships Seen
In Lebanese Waters
TEL AVIV (JTA> A mysterious Soviet ship, said to ;
an intelligence-gathering vessel though it carries no visible
antennae or other equipment, has been observed in Lebanese
wat en recently, several miles off Beirut.
According to unconfirmed reports, the ship can monitor
wireless messages and can maintain surveillance of other ships
and transports on land. Sources here suggested that it may be
conducting certain hydrographic measurements.
BUT ITS presence may also be intended to deter Israeli
ships from taking any action in Lebanese waters.
Soviet policy in the Lebanese civil war lias been ambiguous.
While Moscow has beeri trying to provide the Moslems and
I'LO with arms and political backing, it also continues to
supply arms to Syria whose forces have battled the Moslems
and Palestinians in Lebanon.
Despite differences over Syria's intervention in I^ebanon,
there has been no deterioration of relations between the Soviet
Union and the Syrian regime.
Israel Plays Down Tiff
With U.S. on OilDrilling
By DAVID LANDAU
Officials here continued
to play down the
significance of last week's
sea clash, followed by a
diplomatic altercation, with
the U.S. over an American
firm's oil drilling efforts in
the Gulf of Suez.
Following last Thurs-
day's meeting on the
subject between Premier
Yitzhak Rabin and
Toon, Israeli officials have
indicated that they would
like the issue now dealt
with through channels of
"quiet diplomacy" far from
the stresses and tensions of
THE OFFICIALS are thus
uniformly reticent in discussing
the affair. Thev refuse even to
furnish information or opinions
even on the purely legal aspects
of the incident.
The officials speak hopefully of
a "pragmatic solution" being
evolved, which would apparently
satisfy the immediate needs of
the firm involved, Amoco, and at
the same time not prejudice

A New Year's Message
By Frank R. Lautenberg
UJA General Chairman
The New Year. 5737, for "We, the Jewish Poeple," is a symbol
of life, new hope and new purpose. For in the aftermath of
Entebbe, we who dream who choose man over chaos, who
endeavor to make of life something of value now realize that
we have the power to make impossible dreams come true.
For at Entebbe, we saw the specter of Jews again being
separated. But at Entebbe, we also saw Jewish life defended. In
this period of self-reflection, it is the spirit of Entebbe that we
must emulate. For us, the task is not to foresee the future, but to
enable it. This is a sacred trust we dare not violate.
For just as we pray for peace during this High Holiday period
- the remembrance of Yom Kippur three years ago tells us we
must aiwjy naintain our vigilance. The Psalms say: "The
guardian of the people of Israel neither sleeps nor slumbers."
For there is no real peace for the people of Israel, and their
economic problems imperil their growth. And although the
exodus from the Soviet Union continues slowly, we must
maintain our vigilance for those in Russia who still can't say.
"Next Yen in Jerusalem."
As the New Year approaches, let us resolve to make of 1977 a
year of new expectations, a year of new vision and a year of
challenge to our communities and our people.
My Visit to Romania
By ISRAEL RESNIKOFF
I would like to share some of
the findings my wife and I
observed on our most recent
visit to Romania.
Our main concern of course, is
and always will be, Judaism, its
problems and its existence in a
totalitarian type of government.
Sadly but admittedly, the
present Jewish population of
Romania is down to a mere
35,000, a far cry from its pre-war
status of one million. At one
time Romania had dynamic
Jewish institutions of Talmud
Torahs and congregations. It
produced some of our great
scholars in Jewish law inter-
pretation and many other levels
of scholarly learning.
The great Solomon Schechter,
the founder of the Jewish
Theological Seminary, is a name
most familiar to all conservative
The great Jewish communities
of Bucharest, Brasov. Yassy,
Constanta and so many other
former centers of learning are
lowly but surely disappearing.
It is a heartbreaking experience,
a sorrowful sight, to observe

and forever. It is terrifying to
see synagogues being completely
decayed, windows broken, doors

political, social and economic
conditions in Israel and focused
on the human needs for the
upcoming 1977 campaign," said
"For our fellow Jews
wherever they live we must
reassure them that their fellow
Jews in America are very much

welfare. What our campaign is
all about is whether we feel any
sense of obligation to the
generations who came before us
and to those who are yet to
come," concluded Mrs. Gould.

We react as a family to the

| Yom Kippur:
1 The Crowning Jewel
The chant of Kol Nidrei will be heard in syna- ::
:: gogues throughout the world on Sunday evening, ::
;: ushering in Yom Kippur, the last of the High Holy :
From the most humble congregation to our
gloriously-architected temples, from gatherings in
lands where Jews must whisper for fear of their
survival to pioneer outposts in Israel, the chant will
call us to a spiritual stock-taking.
The universal, compelling force of Yom Kippur
has as much meaning for us today as it did in our
ages-old past. Perhaps more than any other Jewish
holiday, the Day of Atonement evokes a spirit of
awe in the heart of every Jew.
jj In the chanting of Uv-chen Tayn Pachdechah, we
:: implore: "And put thine awe on all Thy creatures,
:|: that they may all form one force to do Thy will."
x Here, the meaning of Judaism aspires toward total
j:j identification with its highest belief.
And, in this aspiration, all Jews recognize the
essential unity of their faith. In direct contrast,
there can be no greater tribute to the dignity of the
Yom Kippur, according to tradition, is the day on
which man's fate is sealed for the year to come. On

further tribute to the Jew that his faith transcends

A Sacred Word
As the new General Assembly of the United Nations
calls itself to order, the aggressive guns of its purpose are
already aimed at another round in the destruction of
The frightening destruction of a member nation,
Lebanon, has hardly figured in the Assembly's business
up until now.
Then, there is the racial confrontation between whites
and blacks in Africa. To make the mixture all the more
saucy, there are growing problems and increasing
possibilities of confrontation in Korea, Vietnam and, with
the death of Mao Tse-tung, even in Taiwan.
None of this has any of the single-minded purpose for
the UN that Israel and her eradication from the face of
the earth seem to represent.
We can anticipate a stormy session.
It is therefore good to note that Israel has sent a
delegation to the United Nations this year that, for the
first time, includes an Arab representative.
Let the world see that there are Israeli Arabs who take
part in Israel's political processes. It is not that the
world doesn't know this; it is simply rather that the
world would rather not have to deal with what that

Days of Awe and Other Things
In our tradition, tonight
begins the "Days of Awe," our
highest holy days. For those who
work in the synagogues, the
rabbis, cantors, administrators,
they seem to be more "Days of
It has been written that the
era through which we are now
passing has given an importance
to the High Holy Days that was
possibly fading in the minds of
many Jews before the advent of
As a result, the Jew asks
with some desperation and
poignancy: what is the meaning
of human life? what is our
striving all about? what are good
and evil? how can we renew our
individual lives in the light of
the only answers there are to
VERY POSSIBLY these
questions are raised within the
sanctuary, whatever form it may
take. But for synagogue per-
sonnel the questions they hear
seem mostly to be: how much
are tickets? what does it cost to
be a member? why can't I have
tickets for my relatives visiting
from New York.
Such attitudes and actions
could make unbelievers out of
those who deal with the
economics of synagogue life.
Another rabbi has written

anguish that the advent of
the High Holy Days seems to
make chiselers and liars out of so

this and with the religiosity of
those who request a ticket "only
for Kol Nidre, I will leave right
after," and the Yizkor-sayers
who sweep in in time to catch

are on their way out before the
final "omayn," having done their
BUT AS I begin my 20th year
as a synagogue administrator, I
still find it an emotional strain
trying to reconcile the needs of
the institution with the needs of
those who cannot afford to pay
for their Jewish needs and I
am certain that this goes for my
colleagues, the rabbis and
laymen exposed to the problem.
The American Association for
Jewish Education's latest
projection is a further reduction
this year in the number of
children exposed to a Jewish
Some of this is, of course, due
to the declining Jewish birth rate
which keeps showing up as stark
statistical evidence of our belief
in ZPG if not hedonism.
BUT I have contended for
several years now, based on the
pragmatic evidence of interviews
with hundreds of applicants for
membership, that there are a lot
of Jewish children out there who
do not have the opportunity to
learn about their heritage
because of money.
It is perhaps equally as true
that there are parents who can
afford it who put a low priority
on spending for Jewish
education; membership com-
mittee people can all tell their
stories of the demeaning "offers"
by obviously well-to-do persons
whose low evaluation of Jewish-
ness in their lives is proven by
their refusal to meet even
modest financial obligations.
WHILE THIS is a community

I return and return is part
of this period's tradition to an
oft-repeated theme in this
column. Few synagogues have
the resources any longer to
handle this most important
problem of the Jewish com-
munity by themselves.
The plight of the unemployed,
the growing number of no-fault
divorcees, of literally widows and
orphans, of people of minimal
means (and we Jews have our
share of those), must be the
concern of the total community.
SEVERAL MONTHS ago, I
wrote here of the distorted
priorities of Federation's Central
Agency for Jewish Education
which placed "Education for the
underprivileged Jewish child" in
Undoubtedly this reflected the
attitude of the Federation estab-
lishment as a whole which not
too long ago requested the syna-
gogues not to send poor people
to them for help.
It is not easy to think of this
in the context of these Holy
Days, but as the noted Ber-
dichev rabbi said: "Whether a
man really loves God can be
determined by the love he bears
toward his fellow man."
And isn't that what this is all
about when we express a sincere
wish for a good year for all? To
be Jewish is to go beyond that
wish and to do.

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Entebbe Victims Didn't
Have a Kosher Mezuzah
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
In the Friday, Sept. 3, issue of
The Jewish Floridian, you carried
a half-page advertisement with a
message from the Lubavitcher
Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel
Schneerson. In it, we Jews are
warned that we need to tighten
our spiritual, as well as physical,
security measures if we are to be
In commenting on the Uganda
and Istanbul terrorist actions, we
are informed that not a single one
of the Jewish victims had a
kosher mezuzah on his doorposts
at home. Jewish law, we are
reminded, "tells us that a
mezuzah affixed to the doorpost
of a house acts as a protection for
those who live within, even when
they leave their home" (sic).
IN OTHER words, the Rebbe
suggests to us that if we don't
have a kosher mezuzah on our
doorposts, we may well be
placing our very lives in jeopardy
as happened to those involved in
the Uganda and Istanbul
Surely, it is with the best of
intentions that Rabbi Schneerson
and his hassidim in South Florida
bring us this "pedagogic"
message. Nonetheless, this
message is morally repulsive if
not obscene. It smacks of
medieval obscurantism and
represents the kind of super-
stitious nonsense which local
Chabad spokesmen would have
The implied theological
principles are terrorizing as it is
suggested that either we do as
the Rebbe says, or we may not
survive. This is the same
theological view which ascribes
the Holocaust to the failure of
Jews to observe the mitzvot.
AT THE same time, it is quite
correct to point out that this
position is an authentic classical
rabbinic point of view. Indeed,
several of the Talmudic rabbis
attributed such magical powers
to the mezuzah that for a time the
mezuzah was used as a sacred
amulet to ward off evil spirits.
(Some apparently believe that
the mezuzah still possesses such
In the Shulchan Aruch, the
Code of Jewish Law edited by
Joseph Caro, we are even told
that "For the crime of not ob-
serving the precept of the
mezuzah, a man's sons and
daughters will die while yet in
Authentic or not, this is a
theological position which is
morally reprehensible in the
THIS IS not the way to preach
and teach Judaism or the values
of Jewish practice and identity.
One need not reject modernity
and an enlightened world view in
order to perpetuate and enrich
our Jewish lives. Being Jewish
cannot be made more attractive
or meaningful when we are
compelled to lapse into a con-
dition of medieval fear and
trembling behind ghetto walls of
superstition, ignorance and anti-
What is most disturbing is
that the Lubavitcher approach
the issues of life and death with
such naivete and self-
righteousness. Still, incredibly,
many in the community ap-
parently find the Lubavitch
"style" and attitude so very
charming and wonderful that
support is generously given their
Young children are sent to the
Lubavitch Yeshiva to be
"properly" educated as Jews.
Chabad Houses are established
with a strong conviction in the
"lifesaving" capacity of Chabad
emissaries who have the ability
and answers, so we are told, to
"save" our children.
THEY ARE particularly
interested in protecting the
college-aged from being infected
by secular knowledge and alien
beliefs. It is as if Chabad, as an
institution, possessed the same
magical lifesaving powers that
Rabbi Schneerson and his an-
tecedents ascribe to the mezuzah.
Moses Maimonides (1135-
1204), no small rabbinic scholar
and philosopher-theologian, had
occasion to comment about those
in his time who tended to ascribe
magical powers to the mezuzah.
He said "... these fools not
only defeat in this manner the
fulfillment of a great command-
ment which has for its end the
remembrance of the unity of God,
and the love of Him and worship
of Him, but turn it into an amulet
for their selfish interest. ."
IF THE Lubavitcher Rebbe or
any of his Chabad workers and
lay supporters are going to
"speak out on Operation Uganda
and the Istanbul terrorist at-
tack" with such mindless passion
and at such expense, why not do
it against the Arab terrorists
Why not join the organized
Jewish community in the
campaign against international
terrorism? Instead, the
Lubavitcher shamefully suggest
that it was the Jewish victims
who were somehow responsible
for their own victimization and
suffering because they didn't
have kosher mezuzahs on their
doorposts at home.
There are far better ways to
work in behalf of Jewish spiritual
and cultural life than to take half-
page ads in the newspaper to
promote obscurantist ideas and
medieval fear in our community.

Dole Affirms U.S.-Israel Ties
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Sen. Robert Dole of
Kansas, the Republican
candidate for Vice
President, has pledged that
the United States will never
jeopardize Israel's security.
"I wish it were possible
to come here tonight and to
lay before you some radical
new initiatives, some grand
strategy for peace," Dole
told the 79th annual
national convention of the
Zionist Organization of
"INSTEAD, I come only with
the firm commitment that the
Ford Administration will con-
tinue to search, and that it will
never jeopardize the security of
Israel in the search for peace, nor
will the Ford Administration
retreat one inch from its com-
mitment to the security of
Israel," he said.
Dole also stressed that "I
believe no enemy of Israel, real or
potential, can mistake the will or
the intentions of President Ford
toward the safety and security of
However, Dole said friends of
Israel should not question
American efforts to win friends
among the Arabs.
"THE UNITED States has a
role to play with each nation in
the Middle East," he said, "and
those who doubt or suspect the
motives and actions of the United
States in that regard should
recognize that the interests of
Israel rest with a resolution of the
conflict there which is acceptable
to all parties and beneficial to all
Discussing the issue of the
Palestinians, Dole said the
Lebanese conflict has demon-
strated the fallacy of the
Palestinian argument that Israel
should become a secular state.
He said the state the
Palestinians "envision for the
future looks precisely like
Lebanon before they tore
Lebanon apart. The events in
Lebanon are the best refutation
for the Palestinian argument for
a new state," he said.
DOLE CHARGED that
"demagogues" have since 1948
used the plight of the
Palestinians to stir up hatred
against Israel while keeping the
Palestinians themselves in camps
and feeding them hatred.
"Finally, the generation that
grew up in the camp was set
loose, not merely on Israel, but
on the world," he said.
Dole pointed to his own record
of support for Israel and Soviet
Jewry. Noting that the Jewish
vote in Kansas is minimal, he
said, "my support of Israel is

Ruth is hepoine of new hit musical in Isaael
HAIFA In 1975 there were 795 converts to
Judaism in Israel. If the most famous of all converts,
Ruth the Moabitess, had to go through the crdeal
which faced most of these, she might well have become
discouraged, in which case her great-grandson, King
David, might never have been born and Israel would
never have seen "Your People Are Mine," the new
musical drama which is the sensation of this summer.
The Biblical Book of Ruth contains only four
chapters, and the story is known superficially by
almost everyone. But the show now being presented in
Tel Aviv picks up details which had been overlooked,
and gives them new meaning in the light of con-
IT IS also the story of a family which left Israel
because times were tough here, another reminder that
there have always been yordim. Ten years were spent
on foreign soil during which the head of the house and
his two sons die. The widow, Naomi decides to return to
Israel, and one of her daughters-in-law comes along too.
"Your People Are Mine" is primarily the work of
Gladys Gewirtz Hedaya, an American woman who
many years ago wrote Jewish children's songs that
delighted a whole generation of youngsters. Her
production draws equally from the depths of Jewish
scholarship and from the realities of the problems of our
times. 'When Naomi sings "Tell me what you have
against me, God" she is repeating a theme not un-
common in Jewish lore.
BOTH MUSIC and lyrics are in the modern idiom.
Some have called it a "pop show," but it has more
melody than noise. The tunes are catchy, and some may
even be slated for popular acceptance beyond the
confines of the show.
Behind the colloquial phraseology and the modern
slang are themes which touch a ,-hord : Jewish life. For
example, "When your luck ion* >UI you want to bej
with your own."
Naomi can't understand why she has suffered so j
much in life. She retains her faith, but surely she has i
endured the maximum in punishment. To which she I
receives the sage reply, "When God really wants to j
punish you, he deprives you of faith."
THE READER should not be misled into thinking]
this is a musical sermon. Gladys' show has humor,!
rhythm, pathos, suspense. It has the benefit of an)
excellent cast. And do not be deceived by its very!
modest billing as a "celebration" of the Book of Ruth, j
It's a musical show, full of life and spirit and meaning.

TWO YEARS ago, the kettle of "Affirmative
Action" boiled over when the Supreme Court was
considering the case of Marco De Funis, a Jewish
student who was denied admission to the
University of Washington Law School despite his
outstanding academic record. Currently, that
same kettle of debate over treatment of minority
students has blown its steam whistle because of
interpretations and misinterpretations of an
article in the prestigious New England Journal of
Dr. Bernard D. Davis, who is professor of
bacterial physiology at Harvard Medical School,
bore the brunt of the attack on the article as its
AS DR. DAVIS' subsequent apology in-
dicated, he used questionable judgment about
some aspects of his article. He also displayed a
touch of naivete when he said, in effect, that he
hadn't realized that his article would "reach the
public press." Such deep immersion in the
laboratory may advance the course of bacterial
physiology but it reveals a highly unsophisticated
appreciation of what may happen to opinions
when they become public property.
In his article. Dr. Davis acknowledged that "it
would be a rare person today who would question
the value of stretching the criteria for admission
and of trying to make up for earlier educational
disadvantages to help disadvantaged groups."
He then wondered out loud about how far criteria
for passing students should be stretched.
CERTAINLY A board licensing airline pilots
wouldn't allow extraneous considerations "to
interfere with objectivity," he said. That would be
criminal. And then: "The temptation to award
medical diplomas on a charitable basis raises the
same question, even though the consequence of
fatal error in the two professions (aviation and
medicine) are not equally visible and dramatic."
Dr. Davis' use of the term, "charitable basis,"
touched off a cyclone of comment that whirled
around the Harvard Medical School and the
offices of civil rights groups for some time. And
well it might. Harvard President Derek Bok.

of Medicine at Harvard, called the Davis action
"irresponsible." took pains to set forth facts
regarding an actual case cited by Dr. Davis, and
stated categorically that the Medical School

might be a danger to the public because of
When Dr. Davis, in a truly genuine effort to get
at the nub of the issue, wrote "Considerations of
tact and guilt over our history of enormous racial
injustice have made it difficult to face the
problem," he scored a near hit. But his knife
didn't go deep enough. For it is not only the
prejudices of the past that must be overcome: it is
also the sorry history of the entire health-delivery

migrants who have settled in New York City since 1973 have been

Federation officials. Some 11.000 Soviet Jews now live in this
Project Ari. for Action for Russian Immigrants, was created in
conjunction with the Federation's Associated YM-YWHAs of
Greater New York and is focused on the Brighton Beach-Coney
Island area of Brooklyn, described as the site of the largest con-
centration of Russian newcomers in the city. Headquarters of
Project Ari are at the Shorefront YM-YWHA of Brighton-
Manhattan Beach in Coney Island.
MRS. PAULINE BILUS, Project Ari director, said it was
started as a demonstration service program for Soviet Jewish
newcomers, with a start-up grant from the Federation. Project Ari
also received grants from the Mary Warfield Fund of the New York
Community Trust, the Baron de Hirsch Fund and the Lavanburg
The immigrants receive settlement help from the New York
Association for New Americans during their first period of
relocation in New York. Project Ari was started to supplement

"negotiating the system" and orienting themselves to their new
MRS. BILUS said Project Ari gives Russian newcomers
intensive instruction in basic language and other communication
skills for everyday transactions, adding that four English-as-
second-language classes are currently in progress.
Staffed by ESL teachers from the Office of Continuing
Education of the New York City Board of Education, two classes
each meet evenings twice weekly at the Shorefront Y and the
nearby Hirschman Y. The Soviet Jews also study urban living and
the structure of American society.
THEY ALSO receive comprehensive vocational evaluation,
educational and vocational guidance, skills training and placement
services from the Federation Employment and Guidance Service.
Through 31 Ys and Jewish community centers, the Federation
provides Russian Jewish adults, teenagers and children with
recreational, social, cultural and counseling services and op-
portunities to participate in programs related to Jewish identity.
The Hoard of Jewish Education has developed a variety of
mat. ials to acquaint the new immigrants with their Jewish
herit.i ,.* and culture.
P.i ect Ari also centralizes services to Russian Jews from
other voluntary agencies. Theodore Norman, director of the Baron
de Hirsch Fund, said that, "as a pilot project whose basic
methodology may be applicable to any refugee or immigrant
community, the project is of special significance.
IT HAS practical value both in helping Russian immigrants
today and in planning and improving future programs." Mrs.
Stephanie Newman, program associate of the New York Com-
munity Trust, said that Project Ari "is contributing much toward
providing Russian Jewish immigrants with equal access to
vocational opportunity in this country."
Mrs. Bilus said one goal of Project Ari is providing help to
young newcomers in their problems of adjustment. Caseworkers
and group workers help the adolescents adapt to the academic
system, relate to peer groups and learn about their Jewish identity.
Teen groups have been developed at both the Shorefront and
Hirschman Ys. Programs cover Jewish holiday celebrations, arts
and crafts projects, athletic activities and social events with
American Jewish youngsters. The young people also get vocational
and educational guidance.
THE FULL-TIME staff includes a project coordinator, a
secretary, a Russian Jewish caseworker and a R'j*.nan-speaking
group leader who works with the young Soviet Jews. The part-time
staff includes four para-professional social work assistants, two of
whom are Russian Jews; a Russian-speaking FEGS vocational
counselor, and a family program consultant.

about is his enthusiasm his
joyful approach to Judaism .
his pride in his faith, his people
and himself as a Jew! Rabbi Zoll
set out to become a history
teacher ... he never attended
Yeshiva and did not get
"turned-on" to Judaism until, at
17, he first went to Hillel at
While a member of the
History Club there, he became
involved with the Celebration of

laughed but 10 years later he

light ... he did not realize until

To begin the first season of
the Jewish High School in
October, there will be classes at

Temple Emanu-El on Tuesday
nights from 5 to 7 p.m. Classes
are open to all Broward young-
sters from grades 8 to 12 and
what a selection of courses there
will be! In the planning stages
are choices from: Mission
Impossible? Being a Jew in a
Non-Jewish World, taught by
Rabbi Labowitz Rabbi Goor
will teach the Basics of Judaism
. Ron Lebow will teach
Alienation and Assimilation in
Modern Jewish Literature .
Mike Weinberg will teach Com-
parative Religions and there
will be classes in Jewish Music
and Dance (Swing and Sway the
Jewish Way) and possible
choices from Jewish Art. Cal-
ligraphy Ceremonial Art .
For the 8th graders there will
be Prozdor: the Introductory
Year to High School ... For the
9th graders there will be Issues
and Answers, Contemporary
On Monday there will be two
courses for the kids with a
stronger Hebrew background:
Literature and Language of
Israel (Sifrut v' Safrut b'
Yisroeal) and excerpts from Mai-
monides Mishnah Torah.
Doesn't this make your mental
mouth water? I can't wait until
they begin offering courses like
these for adult education.
In the brief time I spent with
Rabbi Zoll we ran the gamut of
conversation from his belief in
God ... "A personal God who is
aware of my existence and cares
about me" ... to his feeling that
"Most Jews aren't anti-Jewish
. they just don't know there's
anything to be excited about"
... to his desire to turn kids on
to studying the Torah ... to
learning that Judaism is exciting
I wanted the hands of the
clock to stop. .1 felt that I was
learning more about my history
so that even in that little time
even the age of the Pharoah was
coming alive for me. If Rabbi
Zoll can bring this enthusiastic
learning alive to our kids .
well ... we have a lot to be
grateful for to him and
to all the teachers who will be
working with our youngsters
When you realize that only a
few years ago we had to "im-
port" kosher meat to Broward
County and now we are
going to have such a level of love
and learning in the Jewish High
School well we've come a
long way, Bubbie!
Did you really think I was
going to let the Holidays go by
without wishing you all a Happy
and Healthy New Year? It was
just that, by forgetting the
snail's pace of mail delivery I
missed my deadline. To each one
of you I most sincerely wish a
New Year that brings to and
your family health, happiness
and a stronger commitment to
our people, Israel. We are One

peace and prosperity.

NEW YORK (JTA) -
reasury Secretary William
]. Simon said that despite
lisgivings on his part he
irould advise President
i'ord to sign new federal
sform tax legislation with
krab boycott sanctions in
fin a weekend interview
ith nationally syndicated
Kctor Riesel on his "Talk
' the Town" WEVD radio
j-ogram, Simon under-
bred the need "for a just
kd lasting peace in the
liddle East" as a means
)f meeting this boycott
I HE TOLD Riesel: "I believe
kat we've made great inroads in
^is boycott in the past year, and
dw we are in the process of
versing and exacerbating the
isions by all of the dema-
^guery that has gone on with
debate. We are not going to
ike this boycott any better. As
utter of fact, we are going to
ike it worse by passing
station like this."
leferring to legislation pen-
\g in Congress, Simon said
kt "it was extremely wrong" to
use tax policy to get across anti-
Arab boycott sentiment.
"It is not the vehicle to use
tax policy because it is im-
possible to administer something
like an economic boycott. They're
using punitive measures denying
tax credit, denying referral of
corporate taxes if one is par-
ticipating in this boycott," he
SIMON SAID that "members
of the Jewish community" have
complained to him about not
doing business "in this Arab
country or that Arab country and
I've asked them if they've tried.
And they say we know it is not
Simon did not identify the
members of the Jewish com-
munity. Nor did he identify
Jewish firms he claimed were
dealing with Arab nations nor "a
top Jewish businessman" who
Simon said received "a big
contract" recently from an Arab
The Treasury Secretary also
told Riesel that Jewish members
of a joint economic group of
American and Israeli business-
men which he heads "have no
trouble getting visas, for
example, to Saudi Arabia.
ASKED BY Riesel whether
Ford would veto the legislation
with the anti-Arab boycott
proviso in it, Simon replied that
"it would be premature to judge
because the language has not
been drawn up. They're still
working on it in Washington. It
is a 1,700-page document. It has
some good things in and some
bad things. We have to weigh the
good and bad. But I believe on
balance the bill is more probably
good than bad."
It will be Ford's "call to make"
on whether to veto the measure
with anti-Arab boycott provisos,
Simon said, adding, that if there
is more good than bad in the
reform tax measure, he "would
recommend that the President
HE REITERATED that with
the anti-Arab boycott sections in
the reform measure, "tensions
will be exacerbated. I know that
this whole boycott issue and the
threat of legislation has cost the
United States unnecessarily
billions of dollars of business
with the Arab countries that
would have come to our
American businessmen, in-
cluding the Jewish community
Simon said that a public
confrontation on the boycott
issue has flared up because this is
"an election year when you have
politicians instead of statesmen
more interested in getting elected
in the next election than they are
in the next generation."

NEW YORK (JTA) Fifteen young Atlas cedars were
presented here by Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jerusalem to Mayor
Abraham Beame in a ceremony at Battery Park.
The newly planted Atlas cedars, called the "Jerusalem
Grove," were given as a present by the people of Jerusalem to the
people of New York. During the ceremony, to which more than 300
guests were invited, Kollek presented Beame with a medal struck
for the occasion. Beame, in return, gave Kollek a pewter vessel.
A 14 man honor guard from Israel's Navy marched at the
ceremony site after the trees were planted. The trees were shipped
to New York from a nursery in Rhode Island and paid for by a
check sent from Jerusalem.

that Jewish life must "cope with
the reality" that political
freedoms are becoming "a
shrinking minority" throughout
the world, David M. Blumberg,
reelected president of B'nai
B'rith, concluded the
organization's biennial con-
vention with a call for "stubborn
Jewish resistance" to safeguard
Jewish communal rights.
Blumberg particularly ap-
pealed for "constantly closer ties
and common action" among
Jewish communities in the
Diaspora on issues affecting
Soviet Jews and the security of
Israel, and to seek Western
against "the cabal that is ex-
ploiting political anti-Semitism
at the United Nations."
THE CONVENTION, largest
in B'nai B'rith's 133-y ear-
history, included along with the
large majority from the United
States, delegates from Canada,
Great Britain, Israel, continental
Europe, Australia, South Africa
and South America.
Several delegations repre-
sented B'nai B'rith af-
filiates in countries suffering
economic and political in-
stability, where anti-Jewish
agitations and propaganda have
been on the increase.
The 1,500 delegates reelected
Blumberg by acclamation to a
final, two-year term.

76 nations which have attained

Blumberg described democracy
as "an embattled species, in a
struggle to survive."
"There are those who suggest
that democracy is embattled
because the world is caught in a
conflict between individual
freedom and social justice
that the totalitarian rhetoric
which promises a full belly is

New UN Anti-Israel Drive Foreseen
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) Foreign Minister Yigal
Allon predicted renewed efforts at reestablishing a
Mideast negotiating momentum in the early part of 1977,
once the American elections and Presidential
inauguration had been completed.
Speaking to reporters in
Jerusalem, he said Israel
had been ready to continue
the diplomatic process
during the current year, but
events in Lebanon and the
American electoral process
had effectively prevented

He conceded that for the few
months immediately prior to the
elections, Israel's leadership
would naturally be enveloped in
its own democratic process, but
for the months prior to that, the
first half of 1977, Israel would be

efforts whichever party won
the Presidential election in the
U.S. Allon praised the U.S.
middleman role in the past and
said he hoped America would
resume these efforts.
Allon said he hoped the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization's discomfiture in
Lebanon would give rise to "new
thinking" within the Arab world
even among those Arab states
which still gave the PLO tactical
support. He said a "dis-
appointment" with the PLO was
detectable throughout the Arab

now regular attacks from the

this, pointing out that Israel's
ties with South Africa were no
different than those of the
majority of the world's nations
including the Black African
He said he favored expanding
trade and other ties with
Pretoria, stressing that this by
no means implied any approval of
apartheid, a policy which Israel
in fact could not accept.
Allon admitted that Israel had
acceded to Syria's demand that
no reporters be present on
Wednesday, when Golan Druze
will be allowed to meet at a new
opening in the security fence
between Syria and Israel.
UNDOUBTEDLY, said the
Foreign Minister, Syria feared
the publicity would enhance
Israel's image and had therefore
insisted on no publicity. But in
the long run, Allon said, Israel's
very readiness to forego this
tactical public relations achieve-
ment would redound to its credit
in world opinion.
On the Kaddum issue, Allon
said pointedly the execution of
the Cabinet decision was not in
his hands, but in those of Premier
Yitzhak Rabin and Defense
Minister Shimon Peres. He said
he hoped it would be im-
plemented, "the sooner the

they refused this and Allon
said he believed that, as law-
abiding citizens they would not
refuse the government should
then use the "means at its
disposal" to get them out.
IN A not-so-veiled swipe at

ministers who "undermine" the
position of the Premier at this
time by indicating that they
intend to run against him for the
party leadership and Premier. He
termed such behavior "unethical

It was much too early, he said,

Allon dodged a question
whether he himself would fight
for the leadership. Most ob-
servers believe he will not, but
will support Rabin, and will, at
any event, throw his entire
weight and influence behind the
anti-Peres forces within Labor in

recalled "the unfair scolding of
Israel" after the failure to reach
the disengagement agreement
with EevDt in March, 1975.
He also pointed to the

Miss Pechter identified the

come to observe the proceedings.
Judge Werker said his court was
not a temple and ordered Fine to
remove his "hat."
Ralph Naden, the attorney for
Kelner, objected, declaring the
"hat" was a religious article worn
by observant Jews. Miss Pechter
said that Judge Werker replied
he did not care what the head
covering was, that "no one wears
a hat in my courtroom," and that
Fine must remove it or leave.
MISS PECHTER said Kelner
wore a yarmulke Aug. 19 and
that Judge Werker did not ob-

his yarmulke and was not
wearing it during his appearance
when bail was set. She said the

BUT IT'S BAD economics for

or not, the Internal Revenue
Service is helping to protect the
tax evaders with foreign bank
The income tax forms used to
ask the taxpayers whether they
kept any foreign bank accounts.
If they "lied about it, they risked
going to prison.
But the Internal Revenue
Service mysteriously eliminated
the question from the tax
returns last year. This key
question could trip up the big-
money tax evaders.
Now, however. Rep. Charles
Vanik (D., Ohio) has introduced
legislation that will force
Internal Revenue to put the
question back in the tax forms.
POISON PROFITS: The En-
vironmental Protection Agency
is supposed to keep poisons out
of the air we breathe and the
water we drink. Yet the agency
has refused to accept evidence
that two of the most widely used
pesticides can cause cancer.
Under federal law, the EPA
must set standards on
pesticides. Preliminary testing at
the National Cancer Institute
indicates that Endrin and
Toxaphene cause cancer in rats
czar Russell Train refused to
accept the evidence. He even
ignored his own agency's study,
which showed that Endrin
caused cancerous tumors in rats
and produced birth defects in
The agency has proposed
standards that at least would
decrease the amount of Endrin
and Toxaphene released into the
environment. But the agency has
refused to police production.
Waste from the factories that
produce the pesticides, mean-
while, enters our rivers.
Why won't the EPA crack
down? It would reduced the
profits of the chemical com-
panies, which manufacture 122
million pounds of the two
dangerous pesticides every year.
FEDERAL NAG: The U.S.
Export-Import Bank is sub-
sidizing a race horse. Its name is
"Boydon Hanover." The New
York owners have sold the horse
to a stud farm in Christchurch,
New Zealand, for $135,000.
The Expoort-Import Bank is
bankrolling half of the mortgage
on the horse. This comes to
$57,375. The other half is
financed by an Australian bank.
A spokesman for the govern-
Bank told my office that the
bank usually handles cattle
But occasionally, he acknowl-
edged, the bank will finance
