Mandel Says 'Inflation Threatens Jewish Services'
Describing inflation as "the
number one threat to Jewish
community services in North
America," Morton Mandel,
president of the Cleveland
Jewish Community Federation,
opened the 1977 Campaign
Planning Meeting of the Council
of Jewish Federations and
Welfare Funds at the Waldorf
Astoria Hotel, Sept. 17.
Mandel appealed to Jewish
Federation leaders and campaign
executives to make 1977 a year
of "unprecedented support of
local and national campaigns to
combat the destructive
elimination of vital life-building
Leon Dulzin, treasurer of the
Jewish Agency, also told Jewish
leaders, despite inflation, to seek
increased contributions for the
Agency's humanitarian services
for 600,000 people in Israel in
"With a military budget of $4
billion next year, and inflation
now at 35 percent," Dulzin said,
"North American Jewry must
again meet 70 percent of the
Agency's annual budget to help
Israel's immigrants."

Six Scholarships Awarded by CJF
Six young Jewish students,
four men and two women,
selected from hundreds of ap-
plicants in North America, are
recipients of the 1976-77 Feder-
ation Executive Recruitment and
Education Program (FEREP)
scholarships, sponsored by the
Council of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds (CJF), in co-
operation with graduate social
work departments of five leading
American universities.
Samuel J. Silberman, chair-
man of FEREP and a CJF vice
president, announced today that
the six students will receive two-
year scholarship grants and
loans toward master's degrees,
and on graduation will be placed
in positions with Federations
throughout the United States
and Canada.
The recipients are Jonathan
Shuster from New York City;
Roberta Sue Novick from West
Hemps tead. L.I.; Sharon R.
Friedrich of Islip, N.Y.; Joseph
M. Brodecki of Richmond, Va.;
Michael Ostroff from Phila-
delphia; and Ronald S. Iken, a
native of St. Louis.
"FEREP's goals, since its
inception in 1972," said Mr.
Silberman, "are to recruit and
train the exceptionally gifted
Jewish student, who is also
deeply committed to enhancing
the quality of Jewish life in the
areas of social service and com-
munal activites for service in the
invaluable humane services
supported and performed by
Jewish Federations in North
Graduates of the program are
placed in the local Jewish Feder-
ations and Welfare Funds of the
United States and Canada ac-
cording to community need.
Twenty-six FEREP graduates
are now serving Federations in
19 cities, with another 12 still ir.
graduate shools. With the six
new scholarship recipients, a
total of 44 young men and
women have so far been selected
for professional careers within
the Federations.
CJF's program was conceived
four years ago in response to the
need to attract students with the
intellectual capabilities, coupled
with a sense of Jewish identity,
into Federation careers both
to meet the growing demand for
qualified professionals and to
infuse youthful, dedicated
leaders into the network of
Jewish welfare organizations.

He reported that in 1974,
Federations had allocated $6
million to health services, as
opposed to $7 million in 1967.
While stressing that the balance
of allocations for domestic and
overseas needs must be main-
tained, he stated that vigorous
support for existing community
programs for the aged, the
Jewish poor, for youth, health
and education services is
essential in preventing severe
restrictions of services in 1977.
Dulzin reported on the 1977
budget of the Jewish Agency,
which is responsible for im-
migration and absorption, agri-
cultural, housing, settlement and
youth aliyah services in Israel.
Prohibitive increases in costs
of high school and university
tuition in Israel make the need
for additional generous support
of the Agency by American
Jewry imperative, he added.
He voiced concern on the issue
of Soviet Jewish immigration,
shared by leaders of Israel, the
U.S. and other countries.
Bernstein called for involving
the entire Jewish community in
the campaign, suggesting that
the period between January and
June be used to "reach families
who do not share in the burden
of responsibility but benefit from
the campaign." And he urged
steps to increase greatly the
number of contributors of major

A symbol of a people who
will not die.
Not even in death.
Yahrzeit is the Jewish ritual observed
upon the anniversary of the death of a parent
or close relative.
A candle is lit and burns for twenty four
hours in the home of the family. As it burns, a
son or daughter of Israel is remembered and
loved. And the Faith and the destiny of the
Jewish people becomes unforgetable.
Each time a Yahrzeit candle is lit, it is the
fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham. An
assurance of new generations for all time.
For the flame is eternal. It symbolizes
Jews as a people who will not die. Not even
in death.

Charlie Friedman Declares
Dedication to Israel's Future
"The Jewish academic, like
most academics, identifies
himself with his specific dis-
cipline, and usually avoids ethnic
or community involvement, and
the cutback in grants and
in Broward positions available on campus
makes him reluctant to become
involved in Jewish campaigns,"
he said.

dedication to the security of
Israel and said. "We need a Con-

incumbent running for the 12th
Congressional seat has sided
consistently with the Ad-

Friedman was the Democratic
nominee for U.S. Congress in
1974. In that election he came
within four votes per precinct of
beating the incumbent.
Friedman called on all
Americans during this Bicenten-
nial year to dedicate themselves
to the support of Israel, just, he
said, as earlier patriots fought
for the rights of all mankind 200
years ago.
"This can be a time of renewed
commitment to the spiritual
principles of our Founding
Fathers. America must translate
those principles into positive
action and come to the defense of

Friedman and his family were
active members of the Touro
Synagogue, the oldest syna-
gogue in the United States.
During his travels, Friedman
lived in Israel and worked as a
young man on kibbutzim during
the 1950s. Friedman also visited
many Jewish communities in
Europe in 1972, including
Austria, Hungary. Czecho-
slovakia, Rumania, Bulgaria,
Yugoslavia and Greece.
As a representative of the
South Florida Conference on
Soviet Jewry, he visited Russia
and met with a group of Jewish
activists in 1974. He also went to
the L'hag B'omer picnic and be-
friended several people who were
denied visas to emigrate.
Friedman belongs to several
other Jewish organizations,
including the Jewish Welfare

Israel was suggested as a step in
recharging his Jewish identity
and in making him more eager to
make a lasting commitment to
Jewish community activities.
The optimism on the campus
of the sixties, Rabbi Israel
added, has given way to a mood
of depression in the seventies,

into the mainstream of Jewish
community life more imperative
than ever.

Another View
Of the El Al Agreement
In an editorial in this column last week, we made
reference to the new landing rights agreement between El
Al Israel Airlines and Mexico which would extend El Al's
service to that country.
We suggested that Mexico's past political actions with
respect to Israel, Zionism and Jews generally made the
agreement seem "ill-timed."
There is, however, another side to this coin. With the
change in Mexico's administration set for Dec. 1, there
may also be concomitant political changes of which the
new El Al agreement is just a harbinger changes with
which El Al may have indeed reckoned in reaching the
Incoming President Jose Lopez Portillo may well bring
Mexico's foreign policy vis-a-vis Israel and Zionism into
a more "harmonious union with what the landing rights
agreement itself represents: a link between Israel and
Mexico that promises good things in the future for all
parties concerned.
In that case, El Al, as a representative of the State of
Israel and of Jews intimately tied to the destiny of Israel,
will have achieved what politics and politicians
previously found it difficult to achieve: not only ex-
panded service for El Al abroad and increased income for
the State of Israel.
In that case, El Al will also have achieved a lessening
of tensions between the two nations involved and the
creation of a friendship for Israel which a beleagured

In essence, not only is the other side of the coin of the

but El Al. by its acumen, helped to create it.
A Question Put to Jimmy Carter
THIS IS being written before
the second presidential debate,
but an incipient pattern has
already been set by the first,
which may stand Gerald Ford in
good stead through to the end
and possibly the election itself.
Ford says he won the first
debate. He said it from the
moment it concluded in a short
circuit of electronic confusion.
He and his retinue have been
saying it ever since, the short
circuit sounding like a needle

pretty soon most everyone will

least sufficiently well to become

Without their own skillful and
manipulative understanding of
it, Madison Avenue would be
just another street.
On the other hand, Jimmy
Carter, as he left the Phila-
delphia theater where the first
debate was staged, confessed to
an inquiring reporter that he had
experienced problems in pro-
jecting his points. What he failed
to explain was that the problems
were no fault of his own they
emerged out of the fact that the
debate was not a debate. He had
come expecting complexity and
was clobbered by simplicity
IT WAS this confession of his
"failure," coupled with the in-
sidiously misinterpreted Playboy
interview, that gave grist to the
Ford declaration of victory,
although Ford was no more the
winner than Carter was the loser.
It also elicited from Carter the
statement, several days later,
when the essential deception of
the whole presentation finally
dawned on him, that he would
have to be less candid about his
feelings in the future a
statement made acutely tragic

Number 21
THE Reverend" Sun Myung
Moon, a self-ordained evangelist
and self-proclaimed Messiah from
Korea, is initiating a campaign to
recruit college-age youth all over
the world, including all 50 states,
Mexico and Canada, and to
infiltrate Jewish organizations.
Over 50 percent of his present
followers are Jewish.
Despite the attempt of parents
to stop their children from
joining Moon's Unification
Church, and to rescue those
already in. Moon continues to
attract the best and brightest of
our youth. How the "Church" is
doing it, and how the parents are
combatting this dangerous
movement, has become one of the
most controversial topics of our
Recruits are promised careers,
clothing, paid medical bills, and a
new and perfect society. Once in,
the Church provides only the
barest subsistence. In turn, the
Church demands that the recruits
give up careers, money, friends
and parents, and devote all their
time to recruiting and fund-
college campuses, in front of
public libraries, on the streets,
and by picking up hitchhikers
and inviting them to a free dinner
to meet a group of young people
who "want to better the world."
Once there, they are persuaded
to stay and work for the Messiah.
who, it eventually turns out, is
Moon. Self-hypnosis by constant
praying, and eventually brain-
washing, is used to coerce the
young people to keep them fat the
movement. "Love your parents,
but don't trust them,'* they are
told. Once indoctrinated, an in-
visible but definitive iron gate
locks the Moonie and his mind
away from society and the
outside world.
Some parents have had to
resort to illegal snatching in
"order to get their children out.
MOON NOW owns, in the
name of the Unification Church,
over $50 million worth of prime
property all over the U.S., plus
numerous factories, in both
Korea and the U.S. His Korean
factories include pharma-
ceuticals, weapons, pottery,
ginseng tea, munition parts, and
shortly he is to receive a contract
to make M16 automatic rifles for
the South Korean government.
Moonies sell peanuts, candy,
candles, tea and flowers on the
streets, in parking lots and door-
to-door, 16 to 18 hours a day,
averaging $300 daily. Multiply
this by 7,000 hard-core members
that Moon claims to have, and
the figures are mind-boggling.
"Moon is building an army,
not a church," says Arthur
Robins, ex-Moonie son of the
authors. "He has not told his
followers to shoot yet, but the
potential is there. They're not
above violence. We were taught
to obey every order, including
dying for Moon, which we were
told was a privilege. Under
hypnosis, Moonies cannot think
for themselves. Right now he has
them programmed to be polite,
smile, and say God Bless You.
But when the time is right he will
put a gun in their hands and tell
them to shoot all who are against
him, just as Hitler did."
IT IS a well-known fact that
Moon has on his staff former
Hitler Youth who have guided
him in the various techniques
used by Hitler to control the
minds of young people.
Just as Hitler did in the 1930s,
Moonies have already begun to
infiltrate teenage groups. In New
York City the Unification Church
.of Manhattan sponsors a Boy
Scout Explorer Post.
In San Francisco, Rabbi
Arnold J. Maggid of Con-
gregation Emanu-El was visited
last January by two well-dressed
young women, Sheri Saeger and
Michele Tunis, who stated they
represented a new organization
called: Judaism: In Service to
the World," its purpose being to
bring the beauties of Jewish
culture to the attention of the
entire world. Upon investigation,
this organization turned out to be
another Moon front, the sole
purpose being to recruit and
fund-raise among Jews.

Mose I. Durst, English professor

College. Oakland, CaL, and
Jeremiah Schnee, leaders of
Creative Community Project in
Booneville, Cal., one of the
largest fronts of the Unification
Church, recently applied for
membership at Temple Beth
Abraham in Oakland, and were
refused because they "didn't
meet by-law qualifications which
require that applicants be of good
character in professing the
Jewish religion."
Schnee manages a janitorial
and construction company and
Aladin, a Jewish delicatessen,
both in Oakland, and both owned
by the Unification Church. Durst
is a former Lubavitcher Jew.
Creative Community Project
recently offered $1,000 to the
Jewish National Fund, as well as
to other unnamed groups, which
were refused.
Jewish Community Relations
Council and the Soviet Jewry
Action group were contacted last
March by David StoUer, a
Moonie leader in the CCP. Stoller
offered to lecture to business
executives on the plight of the
Soviet Jews. When Stoller was
confronted about his Moon con-
nections, he denied it, but did not
call again.

Presidents Conference
Urged Ford to Push
Boycott Law
NEW YORK (JTA) The Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organizations urged President Ford
to use his "personal intervention" to assure passage of anti-
boycott legislation now pending before Congress. A telegram
to the President, signed by Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler
chairman of the Presidents Conference, said:
"The organized Jewish community urgently requests your
Administration to take all possible measures to assure the
final adoption of the anti-boycott legislation now before
Congress. Economic blackmail must be resisted: America
cannot sell its principles for oil money. It must not become the
instrument for furthering the foreign policies of nations whose
purposes are inimical to ours. The Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organizations asks your personal
intervention to that end."
Rallies Commemorate
Babi Yar Anniversary
NEW YORK (JTA) Prayer services and demon-
strations were held here to commemorate the Sept. 29, 1941
massacre of 100,000 Jews by the Nazis in the Babi Yar ravine
near Kiev and to express solidarity with Soviet Jews and their
memorial services on the site in defiance of a ban by the KGB.
The Kaddish, the traditional Jewish prayer for the dead,
was recited here in front of the Soviet Mission to the United
Nations. The service was sponsored by the Greater New York
Conference on Soviet Jewry and the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry.
AT ABOUT the same time, a demonstration was held at
the ticket offices of Aeroflot, the Soviet airline, by the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry.
Eye-witness accounts of the 1941 massacre were read, the
el moleh memorial prayer was chanted, and the shofar was
In Atlanta, meanwhile, Democratic Presidential nominee
Jimmy Carter issued a statement on the 35th anniversary of
the Babi Yar massacre.
He expressed his "strong hope that Soviet citizens of the
Jewish faith will be permitted to memorialize their dead at
Babi Yar."
A COPY of the statement was sent to Soviet Communist
Party Secretary Leonid I. Brezhnev.
It was issued in response to a request from Mrs. Esther
Polan, president of the Jewish Community Relations Council
of Greater Philadelphia who asked both Carter and President
Ford to state their positions on the Soviet ban against Jewish
services at Babi Yar.

Fund Raised
For Hero
Of Entebbe
The establishment of the Colonel
Yonatan Netanyahu Memorial
Fund for Jewish Studies at
Cornell University has been an-
nounced by Harry Levin, dean of
the university'8 College of Arts
and Sciences.
Netanyahu was the 30-year-old
Israeli Army officer who lost his
life in the commando raid on
Entebbe Airport in Uganda on
July 3. The raid resulted in the
rescue of 103 hostages held by
NETANYAHU was the son of
Cornell's Benzion Netanyahu, a
professor of Judaic Studies and
an international authority on
Jewish history.
According to David I. Owen,
chairman of the Department of
Semitic Languages and
Literature, the memorial fund
will be used to enrich the uni-
versity's Jewish studies program
in the following ways: by
helping to endow a professorship
of Jewish studies, by supporting
a new program of archaelogical
exploration and excavation in
Israel, by endowing scholarships
for student exchanges between
Cornell and Israeli universities,
by supporting faculty and
graduate student travelers and
researchers in the field of Jewish
studies, and by establishing a
lecture series in the field.
LEVIN SAID that the
Netanyahu Memorial Fund grew
out of the many spontaneous
expressions of sympathy and
admiration for the young officer
and the numerous gifts sent to
Cornell in his honor.

Assembly Urged To Act Against Hostage-Takers Margate Jewish Center Begins Fall Classes
Continued from Page 1
such an act are either extradited
or brought to trial in the country
where they are seized.
"Acts involving the taking of
hostages are a threat to inter-
national relations. The efforts
made by all states to settle
international conflicts peacefully
and also the endeavors of this
world organization to make
peace more secure are placed in
jeopardy, by criminal acts of
violence committed by a few,"
Genscher declared.
HE ADDED that after "the
bitter experiences" of recent
months, all governments must
unite in condemning the seizure
of hostages and introduce
measures against it.
The West German Foreign
Minister said his government
was "convinced that it should be
possible soon to arrive at such a
convention within the framework
of the UN.
"The government of the Fed-
eral Republic will therefore
request that an item on inter-
national action on the taking of
hostages be included in the
agenda of this General Assembly
as an important and urgent
matter," Genscher said.
THIS YEAR'S General As-
sembly agenda already contains
an item for discussion on
measures to combat inter-
national terrorism. Observers
here noted that Genscher did not
mention terrorism in his pro-
posals and that the agenda item
also includes a call for a study of
the causes of international
The latter was inspired by the
Arab states. The UN so far has
failed to adopt anti-terrorism
measures largely because of ob-
jections by the Arab and African
states which contend that such
measures could be an obstacle to
national liberation movements.
Ford Refused to Help Congress
Act Against Arab Boycott Here
The Ford Administration failed
to reverse its position and throw
its full weight against the delay-
ing tactics of its allies in the
Senate, and the Export Ad-
ministration Act with its anti-
boycott provisions, is doomed.
This was predictable when
Sen. John Tower (R., Tex.),
chairman of the Senate Repub-
lican Policy Committee, which is
in constant close touch with the
Administration, made it known
he would block any effort to
bring the act to a vote.
journing for the national elec-
tions, immediate action by the
President himself would have
been required to persuade Tower
to withdraw his threat and allow
the normal course of legislation
to proceed, the proponents of the
act said.
An end of the Tower threat
would have enabled the Senate
to name its conferees who were
selected last week to work out a
bill for votes in both chambers.
Saying "the bill is doomed,"
an aide to Sen. Adlai Stevenson
(D., 111.), who coauthored the
export extension act, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
"the whole thing is all for
naught" because of the op-
position by the Administration
and its Senate allies.
TOWER MADE it plain he
would oppose unanimous con-
sent to bring a motion to the
Senate floor to name the con-
ferees while debate is taking
place on legal fees in a civil
rights bill. He also told col-
leagues that should the motion
have come after the civil rights
matter was completed, he would
physically filibuster against the
motion until Congress ad-
Until Sept. 28, Sen. Robert
Allen (D., Ala.) had engaged in
parliamentary tactics to delay
the naming of the Senate con-
ferees. Allen, however, withdrew
his opposition to a motion on the
conferees which exposed the Ad-
ministration into either ac-
cepting or blocking the motion.
With Allen's withdrawal, the
White House could charge the
Democratic majority in the
Senate with responsibility for
killing the extension act, some
observers noted.
IN ADDITION to the anti-
Arab boycott provisions, an
important section of the pro-
posed extension legislation
involved the means for the
federal government to help limit
the proliferation of atomic
weapons by restrictions on re-
processing of plutonium and the
enrichment of uranium and
heavy water technology in
agreements made by the U.S.
with other countries.
Meanwhile, White House news
secretary Ron Nessen, asked
about pending legislation to
combat the Arab boycott, said
that "The President in general
feels legislation is not required."
Nessen was asked by the JTA
whether it was true that the
Republican leadership in the
Senate was blocking the Export
Administration bill. He said he
had not heard of that.
Sakharov Appeals to Hopefuls
(JTA) Nobel Peace
Prize-winner Andrei
Sakharov and 90 Jews in
13 Soviet cities have
appealed to Presidential
candidates President Ford
and Jimmy Carter to
continue America's fight
against repression and
humiliation in the Soviet
Both the appeal by
Sakharov and from the
Jews were addressed to the
Center for Strategic and
International Studies of
Georgetown University.
They were relayed to
Washington from Moscow
via Israel and then for-
warded to both Ford and
Carter, a Center official,
Mrs. Judith Berson, said.
IN THE attempts in Moscow
to telephone the appeals directly
to Washington, "the lines were
cut six times," Mrs. Berson said.
Then, a call was put through
from Moscow to Israel by Dr.
Alexander Luntz, a Jewish
activist in Moscow. His reading
was taped in Israel and the
recording replayed by phone to
All the communications took
place last Thursday, Mrs.
Berson said. She pointed out
that appeals have been trans-
mitted to Ford and Carter, but
that "obviously," there has not
been time for them to reply.
The appeals were made public
at a news conference in the
Center's offices here. Officials of
the Center and of the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews took
listed freedom of conscience,
exchange of information, move-
ment and choice of one's country
of residence as among "certain
guarantees for the political and
civil rights of man."
In their letter, the 90 Jews
said "obviously there are
matters of greater urgency to
both candidates than the
emigration of Jews from the
USSR but, as stated at the
meeting of chiefs of state in
Helsinki, the observance of
human rights may become the
most important test case for the
sincerity of relations between the
great powers."
The signers of this appeal
included Vladimir Slepak and
Alexander Lemer of Moscow,
Vladimir Kislik and Boris
Levitan of Kiev, and Yevgeny
Lanchik of Odessa.
Letters to the Council from
Ford and Carter pledging
support for Jews and others in
the Soviet Union but not directly
responsive to the Sakharov and
the Jewish group's appeals were
read to the newsmen by Mrs.
Irene Manekofsky, vice
president of the Council and
president of the Washington
Committee for Soviet Jewry.
FORD, in a letter to Mrs.
Manekofsky, stated: "The cause
of Soviet Jewry and the efforts
to assure the right of free
emigration for all peoples must
remain a national concern."
He gave his assurance that it
is "a cause I will never forget."
Carter's letter, addressed to
Stuart A. Wurtman, president of
the Council, said the Jackson-
Vanik amendment was the way
of Congress to restate the
"deeply held principle" of the
"fundamental right of people to
emigrate" and that the
American people "demand"
honoring of the Helsinki agree-
ment and the United Nations
Declaration of Human Rights to
which the Soviet is a signatory.
Psyched Out of Memorial
NEW YORK (JTA) The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry reported Monday that Dr. Alexander Mizrukhin,
a Kiev psychiatrist who now works as a general practitioner in
a Kiev hospital, had his schedule changed to make it im-
possible for him to attend a memorial ceremony marking the
35th anniversary of the massacre of Jews at Babi Yar.
Mizrukhin, a Jewish activist, was told he must work a
double shift that day and cannot leave the hospital. The NCSJ
said this was another example of the Soviet authorities' at-
tempts to prevent the ceremony from being held.
The Margate Jewish Center
has started classes for the 1976-
77 school year. Advanced
Hebrew classes have been added
and the teaching staff has been
expanded. Registration for chil-
dren is still open for the fall
term. Contact the temple for
more information.

Tay-Sachs Association
Forming Broward Chapter
A Broward County chapter of
the National Tay-Sachs and
Allied Disease Association is
being formed and will have
headquarters at Community
Hospital of South Broward,
according to the facility's ad-
ministrator, Erwin Abrams.
Heading the chapter initially
will be Mrs. Evelyn Sussman, a
ident of Hollybrook and
irmer president of the New
>rk group. Assisting her will be
s. Millie Salnick.
"The goal of this new
organization," Abrams said,
"will be to aid in the total
eradication by testing of a
disease that is always fatal.
Recent medical advances have
made possible the detection of
this incurable condition in
unborn children by a simple test
during the early stages of
pregnancy to determine whether
the fetus is afflicted. There is a
25 percent chance that it will be
if both parents are Tay-Sachs
carriers. Carriers of the gene,
both male and female, can also
be detected prior to pregnancy."
The first meeting of the Tay-
Sachs Broward chapter will be
at 1 p.m. on Wednesday,
20, at Community Hospital,
interested area residents,

"Tay-Sachs is a degenerative,
hereditary disorder that results
in blindness, seizures, total
mental retardation, complete
motor paralysis, and finally
death before the victim reaches
the age of five," Abrams ex-
plained. "There is no treatment
for the disease; the hope lies in
identifying carriers and pro-
viding genetic counsel."
"Even Jews past the child-
bearing age," Abrams said,
"should be tested so that their
children can be informed as to
the possibility of being carriers.
Community Hospital is one of
the testing centers, and blood
samples will be taken in our
laboratory free of charge. A
donation to the Mailman Center
is requested, however."

as its area of focus.
The National Council of
Jewish Women and the National
Federated Women's Clubs had
also been working or studying in
this area.
After a series of summer
meetings, these volunteer groups
have joined together in a con-
certed effort to procure pre-
ventive services for abused
children and their parents.
The plan is to sponsor a com-
munity Forum on Child Abuse
on Feb. 25. The goals of this
forum are community awareness
and advocacy skills.
Broward County will be
presented with a comprehensive
plan for the protection of its
abused children and aid for their
pa rente.
There is no comprehensive
program for parents and children
in this vital area, yet in 1975
there were 2,569 cases of child
abuse and neglect reported in the
county. Latest figures indicate
that between Aug. 1 and Aug. 19
there were 144 cases of abuse
and neglect in Broward and that
the Department of Social and
Economic Services handles, on
the average, approximately 300
abuse and neglect cases per
month. Protective Services is

Jewish Community
Lavish With
Its Many Honors
The American Jewish|
community has been taxed
for many sins of omission,
but no one can ever say
that it has been remiss in
observing the public
relations adage: let us
honor newsworthy men.
Critics might say with con-
siderable conviction that
the Jewish community has
been overly lavish with the
honors it bestows.
Only recently, Hadas-
sah, at its national con-
vention in Washington,
saw fit to honor Sir Harold
Wilson, former Prime Min-
ister of the United King-
dom. It would be in-
teresting to know why.
TRUE TO its traditions -
despite the efforts of such true
supporters of Zionism as the late
Harold Crossman the Biritsh
Labor Party has always been the
warmest friend of Israel when it
occupied the Opposition side in
the House of Commons and one
of its severest critics when the
party filled the Government
Remember the Passfield White
Paper? Remember Ernie Bevin
and his Cyprus concentration
camps for the fleeing victims of
Nazism? Remember the British
pullout from Palestine in 1948
with no attempt whatever to
provide protection for the
Palestine Jewish community?
Remember British diplomacy in
the United Nations the last few
years while Harold Wilson was
Prime Minister?
I HAVE tried to find one
constructive action Harold
Wilson took in behalf of Israel
during his tenure of office. I
haven't been able to find a single
one. Now that he is out of office,
he is president of an Anglo-
Israeli friendship group.
Not so long ago, Congregation
Chizuk Amuno of Baltimore pre-
sented its "Distinguished
Leadership Award" to Secretary
of State Henry A. Kissinger
following a controversy that
divided the entire community.
The function at which Kissinger
accepted the award was a sell-
out, thus confirming the
sagacity of those who figured his
name and presence would sell
1,500 tickets and assure the
financial success of the affair.
Many here and in Israel
wondered why it was necessary
for the congregation to jump the
guns on future historians and
make a determination of Kis-
singer's role in the Middle East
and what effect his operations
will have on the future well-being
and security of the State of
MANY OF us, and many
Israelis, are not exactly happy
with the Kissinger strategy of
forcing concessions from Israel
concessions which appear to
be the keystone of his Middle
East peace policy.
In any case, Henry Kissinger
can now add to the tokens of
esteem he has received from
Anwar el-Sadat and other Arab
chieftains a replica of the
Menorah which stands on the
Ark at Congregation Chizuk
But the award which every
Jew would like to be able to
forget is that conferred by the
Religious Zionists of America in
1972 on one Spiro P. Agnew a
plaque in the shape of a mezuzah
inscribed to "Vice President
Spiro P. Agnew, a true friend of
Israel and the people of Israel."
No longer Vice President but a
convicted felon, Agnew has been
showing in the last few months
the depth of his friendship for
Israel and the people of Israel.
THERE IS hardly a politician
of any stature whatever in any
part of the United States who
has not at some time been
"honored" by a section of the
Jewish community.
Some, indeed, have earned an
appreciation of friendship but of
too many it can be said that
their chief qualification for an
award has been that they have
never done anything overtly
Without question, a powerful
yen to ingratiate itself with
those in or near the seats of
power has motivated many of
the awards and honors we have
bestowed upon the worthy and
unworthy alike. In too many
cases for the communal self-
respect, the recipient of our
"honor" has been induced to
accept it either by payment of a
fat lecture fee or contributions to
a political war chest.
Why must the Jewish com-
munity be so hellbent on giving
awards to non-Jews? Is it
because there is a feeling of basic
insecurity or inferiority and the
award is a contemporary form of
paying tribute to the lord of the
manor? Or is there a simpler,
more pragmatic reason?
THERE IS no single answer.
Unquestionably some awards are
given because of a feeling that it
is necessary for the community
to ingratiate itself with the
person being honored. Equally
true, some awards are given
because a group or organization
genuinely feels gratitude and
affection for the person and
wants to demonstrate its
But the Jewish community is
an incredibly complex or-
ganization and requires millions
of dollars annually to keep its
wheels spinning. No one deplores
the emphasis on fund-raising in
Jewish life more than Philip
Klutznick, former president of
B'nai B'rith, but as he pointed
out recently in an essay, "Vital
Issues in the Jewish Com-
munity," in these days of
scientific salesmanship, world-
wide problems and a multitude
of organizational activities, a
failure to systematize or stress
fund-raising could be fatal.
UNTIL A different day comes,
the choice between high-powered
salesmanship, with some of the
approaches we do not like, and
the Maimonides approach, which
I endorse, could result in the
failure of Jewish organizational
and communal life"
Our system of awards,
tributes and honors is one of the
time-honored methods needed to
keep the community alive and
functioning. It is axiomatic to
the professional fund-raiser that
if you want to put over a fun-
ction, you need a stellar at-
traction fan-dancer in pro-
fessional parlance whose
name will get the potential
contributors out of their shells.
So the practice of getting
names out of the headlines as
recipients of awards. The
criterion is not necessarily that
Mr. X justifies recognition by
the community but whether or
not he will attract the people
who will make the affair a
linancial (or publicity) success.
There are very few affairs not
designed as fund-raisers.
THE WHOLE concept does
not reflect great credit on the
community but as Klutznick
said of the whole fund-raising
operation on which the com-
munity must depend: "If we
have to choose for the moment,
and I believe we do, I will take
the sordid aspects of high-
powered fund-raising as against
the decline and disappearance of
essential institutions in our com-
munal life."
It's obvious that we can't get
rid of the honors gimmick over-
night and that for a long time to
come the Jewish community will
pay tribute to and award honors
to men and women in the public /
eye whether merited or not. All
we can hope for is to be spared
the indiscriminate choices of the
past that rise to haunt us today
and reflect no glory on the Jew-
ish community.

Gur Warns Israel
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Israeli Chief of Staff, Gen.
Mordechai Gur, believes that Israel and its Arab adversaries
have become so powerful militarily that either side could go to
war on its own initiative regardless of restraining influences
by the major powers.
If the Arabs decide to go to war against Israel they will
not ask permission of the superpowers, Gur said in an address
on Kol Israel radio.
HE SAID the Arab armies were building themselves
to launch an attack at a moment's notice. Israel's strengt
must be such as to frighten them out of making such an at- I1
tack, he said.
Gur noted that Israel was maintaining careful sur-
veillance of growing Arab armed strength. It is watching their
preparations, the nature of their military units, their doctrines
of warfare and the types of weapons in their arsenal.
If a war should come, Israel would do everything in its
power to make it a short war that would end decisively not
only in a victory for Israel's army but with geo-political
changes in Israel's favor, Gur said.

One of Two Questions Put to Jimmy Carter
Continued from Page 4
:nying his acceptance of
la'ncial favors from major
Imerican corporations.
The only conclusion I can
raw from all this is that it is
irpocrisy Americans demand in
Blitics, and I suppose elsewhere
o. even when they know that
key are being dealt with hypo-
[Carter said something frank
Lout his feelings, and that was
fd. Ford repeated the dip-
iacy of Watergate, and that
as all right, or so the opinion
ills these days show.
1 HYPOCRISY seems to be so
inch more acceptable than
jnesty, which is all too fre-
jently a confession of some
jinan weakness or other, and if
kere is anything Americans will
pi tolerate, it is human
The truth is that we want to
lied to, and so our demand for
pnness in government is in
ct the greatest American
kpocrisy of all.
The reaction of Playboy to the
it debate, which shows that
magazine isn't really a
|t ion of Carter favoritism,
the whole story.
DECLARED Robert L. Green,
fashion director of Playboy:
President Ford won "hands
down His three-piece vested
suit was absolutely right on the
mark ... His small geometric
print tie with just a touch of
color supports the look of a
distinguished gentleman he
offered a sense of authority."
On the other hand, Carter
"looked like someone who
spends his week in a uniform,
and only wears a suit to church
on Sunday," a frank assertion
that the great American demo-
cratic society has come to be
suspicious of honest proletarian
effort and is on the not-so-secret
qui vive for the establishment of
a great American aristocracy.
None of this should be taken
as an indictment of President
Ford, for the fact is that I've got
some uncomfortable questions of
my own for Gov. Carter, which I
intend to ask here and now,
particularly because, with his
small geometric print tie, I can
hardly expect them (or any other
kind either) to come from the
President himself, whose sense
of the aristocratic appears these
days to be growing by leaps and
THE FIRST of these involves
Carter's pollster Patrick Caddell.
Caddell is a major stockholder
in Cambridge Reports, Inc.,
which last March signed a
contract with the Embassy of
Saudi Arabia in Washington.
Under the terms of the con-
tract, Cambridge Reports re-
ceived a $50,000 advance and is
in turn obligated to supply the
Embassy with regular reports on
American public opinion.
FOR SOME $30,000 more,
Caddell's firm agreed to supply
the Saudis with the answers to
30 additional questions.
According to New York
Timesman William J. Safire, the
regular reports and, presumably,
the answer to the 30 questions
feature an "oral presentation of
the data," as well as "personal
consultations to assist sponsors
to understand and employ the
information contained" in the
One can only wonder what the
reports contain: Information on
American Jewish individuals?
Corporations? U.S.-Israeli
CERTAINLY, Caddell himself
wont say. Nor will he say
anything about the reports his
organization prepares for Exxon,
Arco, Shell and Sun, four leading
U.S. oil companies, from which
Cambridge receives an additional
$80,000 annually. Do these
reports contain similar in-
formation and advice about the
American Jewish community?
Are they linked to the Saudi
If Caddell is vague in ex-
plaining this aspect of Cam-
bridge's activities, certainly
Carter himself can't slough off
the fact that one of his closest
aides is the registered agent of
an Arab power.
At least, he can't slough it off
and win my confidence, let alone
the confidence of millions of
other American Jewish voters.
ACCORDING to newsman
Victor Bienstock, writing
recently in this newspaper.
Carter declared in a Plains, Ga.,
press conference that he failed to
"see anything wrong" in the
Caddell-Saudi Arabian tie.
This is too simple an answer
for Carter, whose problem since
Labor Day has been the com-
plexity of his answers. If most
Americans adore simplicity
framed in the father figure of
phony grandiloquence, American
Jews do not. Certainly not when
their own lives, their own for-
tunes, their own sacred honor are
at issue.
They want better explanations
of Caddell's activities than that.
They are sensitive to the fact
than an inner circle Carterite is
on the Saudi Arabian payroll, as
well as on the payroll of major
U.S. oil firms doing business
with the Saudis and other Arab
THEY FIND it hard to
believe that the Arabs and the
oil firms chose Cambridge Re-
ports for their intelligence on
American Jews entirely because
of Caddell's expertise. They
suspect that his work as a
highly-placed Carter aide must
surely have had something to do
with it.
If Carter relies on such a
simple response, perhaps it is a
bell-wether for a new simplicity
during the balance of the debates
to match Ford's own a sim-
plicity Americans seem warmly
disposed toward. But I for one
require something more com-
plicated as a rationale for the
Caddell matter.
Furthermore, I have still
another uncomfortable question
for Carter, just as urgent,
already asked of him but still
unanswered by him. I want an
answer, and no easy answer
either. For more on that, another
time .

your country."
The letter, initiated by
Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman
(D., N.Y.), was signed by
49 Democrats and six Re-
publicans and others may
sign it before it is actually
transmitted to Buenos
EXPRESSING their "deep
concern" about the "shootings
and bombings of Jewish in-
stitutions and businesses in Ar-
gentina" and the kidnapping of
several prominent Jews, the
letter says that these "incidents
of violent anti-Semitism" are
"repugnant to Americans and
people of good will everywhere."
It noted that Videla himself
had "expressed opposition to
these actions."
In their letter, the legislators
said the attacks "have re-
portedly been condoned and even
encouraged by some groups
within the Argentine military
and police forces."
It also stated that "the
distribution of Nazi literature
within Argentina has increased

Ruth is heroine of new hit I musical in lscael
HAIFA In 1975 there were 795 converts to
Judaism in Israel. If the most famous of all converts,
tuth the Moabitess, had to go through the ordeal
vhich faced most of these, she might well have become
liscouraged, in which case her great-grandson. King
)avid, might never have been born and Israel would
ever have seen "Your People Are Mine," the new
nusical drama which is the sensation of this summer.
The Biblical Book of Ruth contains only four
fhapters, and the story is known superficially by
Umost everyone. But the show now being presented in
lei Aviv picks up details which had been overlooked,
Vd gjves them new meaning in the light of con-
emporary experience.
IT IS also the story of a family which left Israel
cc-ausc times were tough here, another reminder that
-here have always been yordim. Ten years were spent
In foreign soil during which the head of the house and
|is two sons die. The widow, Naomi decides to return to
srael, 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 chord in Jewish life. For I
example, "When your luck runs out you want to bej
with your own."
Naomi can't understand why she has suffered so
much in life. She retains her faith, but surely she has
endured the maximum in punishment. To which she
receives the sage reply, "When God really wants to|
punish you, he deprives you of faith."
THE READER should not be misled into thinking!
this is a musical sermon. Gladys' show has humor,I
rhythm, pathos, suspense. It has the benefit of ahl
excellent cast. And do not be deceived by its very!
modest billing as a "celebration" of the Book of Ruth.I
It's a musical show, full of life and spirit and meaning.
It is now being presented weekly, all in English. I

/O YEARS ago, the kettle of "Affirmative
[ion" boiled over when the Supreme Court was
sidering the case of Marco De Funis, a Jewish
lent who was denied admission to the
[versity of Washington Law School despite his
standing academic record. Currently, that
[je kettle of debate over treatment of minority
jents has blown its steam whistle because of
erpreiations and misinterpretations of an
|cle in the prestigious New England Journal of

ferial physiology at Harvard Medical School,

DR. DAVIS' subsequent apology bl-
eated, he used questionable judgment about
|me aspects of his article. He also displayed a
itch of naivete when he said, in effect, that he
j't realized that his article would "reach the
press." Such deep immersion in the
hitory may advance the course of bacterial
^iology but it reveals a highly unsophisticated
nation of what may happen to opinions

hen wondered out loud about how far criteria
assing students should be stretched.

In't allow extraneous considerations "to
fere with objectivity," he said. That would be
nal. 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,
taking issue with Dr. Davis, said he could find no
basis for any implication that minority students
are less than fully qualified for the M.D. degree in
accordance with normal standards of the Harvard
Medical School.
DR. ROBERT H. EBERT, Dean of the Faculty
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
"rejects the notion that any of its graduates
might be a danger to the public because of
inadequate preparation."
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
services that needs to be reviewed.
BLACK AND JEWISH youngsters who were
turned away from medical schools in years gone
by because of racial and religious quotas suffered
outrageous treatment.

MORE THAN 1,000 of the nearly 6,000 Russian Jewish im-
migrants who have settled in New York City since 1973 have been
assisted by Project Ari, a wide-ranging program established last
year by the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, according to
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
Corner House.
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
NYANA help through follow-up from Federation agencies' social,
vocational and educational services to help the newcomers in
"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 Board of Jewish Education has developed a variety of
materials to acquaint the new immigrants with their Jewish
heritage and culture.
Project 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 Russian-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.
Staff members from outside agencies also help.

he speaks out on these crucial

but agreements whose terms are
hammered out between the parties."
"There will be no one-sided
"We will proceed as we have in the

"I am proud to stand on my
consistent 28-year record of support
for Israel. You know where I stand."
"The funds I proposed for Israel in
my first two budgets totaled over $4
billion for 27 months. These figures
speak more eloquently than words."
Soviet Jewry
"I will continue to seek further
progress on the issue of emigration
from the Soviet Union. I raised it
personally with General Secretary
Brezhnev. I have discussed it on
many occasions with my former
colleagues in the House and in the
Senate with the determination to
restore the prior rate of emigration."
Zionism and the UN
"I tell you now that we will fight any
measure that condemns Zionism as
racism or that attempts to deny Israel
her full rights of membership in the
United Nations."
"A free people must never capitulate
to terrorism...Certainty of
punishment prevents crime. I very
strongly urge international action to
stamp out terrorism wherever it may
"The Entebbe raid on July 4 was a
magnificent display of heroism and
dedication really unmatched in recent
history throughout the world."

We agree that President Ford is such
a friend.
That's why we can depend on him.

international arena, in the supply of arms
and in economic aid almost with no
precedence. The margin between what we

"A review of President Gerald Ford's record
in Congress offers strong assurance that the
United States will continue to be deeply
concerned about Israel's security and the
search for an A rab-Israel peace...
"The best reassurance is the consensus, on
