Pacesetter Event Sets
Stage for 77 UJA Drive
The return here of the Fort
I Lauderdale Federation's 30-
Imember mission to UJA's "This
lyear in Jerusalem" and the
flection of Monday, Nov. 22, for
la pacesetter reception (minimum
|$10.000 contribution) are the two
events that herald the beginning
of the Federation's UJA Cam-
paign for 1977.
Sen. Samuel L. Greenberg,
eneral campaign chairman, and
ember of the mission, said that
the campaign is off to an early
Itart for two reasons.
"We have a lot of money to
|aise this time and Israel's im-
migration and absorption needs
}re not only undiminished but
rger and more pressing than
Iver as a result of the ongoing
Tiflux of Jews from the USSR
nd Arab lands, and the severe
krain on funds stemming from
he worldwide inflation," he said.
I Greenberg recalled the greet-
Ig from UJA general chairman
Frank R. Lautenberg at the
opening session of the conference
in the Tel Aviv Sports Palace.
"In times of isolation and
anxiety crisis and hope the
Jewish people come together. Our
hearts are tied to Jerusalem. For
us it is clear that together we
have a proud heritage and
together we accept our re-
sponsibilities. This is our legacy;
this is our tradition; this is our
challenge as Jews," Lautenberg
The pacesetters reception will
be followed by other events in the
Fort Lauderdale area.
A dinner will take place on
Thursday, Dec. 9, for a S5.000
contribution, and the Feder-
ation's annual Man of the Year
dinner is slated for Sunday, Feb.
20, for $1,000 contributors.
Funds raised during the cam-
paign will go to the United
Jewish Appeal for support of
relief, rehabilitation and resettle-
ment programs in Israel and
other parts of the world, and to
continue the Federation's family,
community and social services.

and the nearby town of Halhul,
mostly youths, suspected of
desecrating the synagogue at the

Synagogue Disbands,
Treasury Given to UJA
What happens to its treasury
when a synagogue disbands?
And why do synagogues come
to an end of their days?
Here's a look at what happened
to the Emanuel Synagogue of
The Bronx, New York and how
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale came into the
Three things brought the
synagogue upon lean days and
ultimately to its end.
The first was a decline in the
membership of younger families,
which made their way in in-
creasing numbers and at a fairly
steady pace to the suburbs.
The second was an attrition in
membership as the result of
mortality, with no replacement of
those who passed away.
The third factor in the
synagogue's demise was a
dramatic change in the
ethnic / religious character of the
neighborhood from a once
largely Jewish enclave to a
neighborhood whose majority
was now black and Puerto Rican.
Morris Dorf, president of the
synagogue, had the task of pre-
siding over the shul's last days.
(The rabbi had left much earlier
for a pulpit elsewhere.) If there
was no membership left to speak
of; it was difficult enough to
gather a minyan, there was still a
sizeable amount of money.
The synagogue and the
property it stood on was sold to
the New York City Board of Edu-
cation for use by nearby James
Monroe High School. There was
also money left over from dues,
bequests and the sale of syna-
gogue furnishings.
What to do with the money?
Dorf had what he considered a
simple and sensible plan. "Give
the money to Israel," he said.
But there were demurrers and
i objections. Not that any alter-
nate plans were produced; it was
just that some among the
remaining officers and board
members felt nothing should be
done "hastily." Dorf waited until
his patience started to thin.
Dorf let it be known that he
was going to remit the syna-
gogue's holdings to an ap-
propriate though as yet undesig.
nated Israeli organization
working to help the elderly, the
poor and the sick among the im-
migrants. He no sooner made this
announcement than he was faced
by a challenge in the courts
Those opposing his plan took him
to court to secure an injunction
prohibiting his transfer of funds
to Israel and, in effect, freezing
the money in its bank account.
What bothered Dorf more than
this action of some of his friends
and associates was that money
amassed among Jews who were
partisans and lovers of Israel
should be held back from Israel in
a time of want and need.
Dorf told the court, and won
the judge's sympathy and
finally his consent that he
wished to turn the money over to
the United Jewish Appeal.
Dorf wrote a check for the
United Jewish Appeal of Greater
New York, drawn on the account
of The Emanuel Synagogue of
the Bronx. And when Dorf
arrived in Fort Lauderdale in
mid-October to take up his winter
residence in the Bermuda Club,
he called the offices of The Jewish
Federation and said that he had a
check he wished to turn over to
the UJA. Dorf turned over the
check in the amount of $2,660,
made out to the United Jewish
Appeal, and again drawn on The
Emanuel Synagogue.
Synagogues, like those who
worship in them, come and go.
The Jewish people remain. Men
like Dorf are among those who
have made that possible.

For Parents Influence
Bernie Libros puts the blame
on his parents.
"They brought me up as a Jew.
And they instilled in me a strong
sense of Zionism. I have never
forgotten. And I am deeply
Libros is the newly ap-
pointed chairman of the
Federation / UJA campaign in
Woodlands and is already hard at
work. But the work is not new to
him; he served as cochairman
last year, and this year, in ad-
dition to this UJA chairmanship,
he is cochairman of the
Woodlands drive for Israel
"I guess you might say my
Zionism shows," he said.
It shows in the way Libros
goes about his job as a campaign
worker. He is seen at the cam-
paign offices of the Federation at
least once a week, but his
associates in Woodlands see him
more often in his home, their
homes and on the golf course. Mr.
and Mrs. Libros (Mitehie) were
hosts ta the campaign cabinet at
a meeting in mid-October, and
are known for* their "open door"
in all matters having to do with
UJA, Israel, Jews, Jewishness,
Judaism or Klal Yisrael. Mrs.
Libros, by the way, is the chair-
person of the Woodlands UJA
Women's Division.
Libros was active in the UJA
of Roelyn, Long Island, was a
member of the synagogue and
took part in the Bond drive.
Libros came to Fort Lauder-
daie, to Woodlands, from Long
Island in 1972. He and Mrs.
Libros have visited Israel three

he smiles and says softly, "From
strength to strength for Israel
and the Jewish people."
Joint Distribution
Committee, Italy
ROME Although the Rosh
Hoshanah service was scheduled
to start at 7:30 p.m., at 7 o'clock
the rooms of the apartment
located in Ostia, a suburb of
Rome, which serves as social
center for Russian refugees
awaiting emigration to Israel,
was filled with men, women and a
few children.
The service was conducted by
one of the Russians, a Luba-
vitcher hasid. Of the 60 men
gathered in the two small rooms
(the third accommodating 20
women), not more than 30 were
praying. There were more than
200 people there that night.
Everyone got prayer booklets in
Hebrew and Russian, provided
by the Joint Distribution
The congregation was serious
for a while, showing much in-
terest, but the heat and the
groups that constantly entered
the rooms forced many of the
younger ones to leave and stand
outside in the courtyard.
One young man lit a cigarette.
Someone told him that it was for-
bidden to smoke near the "shul"
on Shabbat and especially on
Rosh Hoshanah Eve. He looked
amazed and appeared ashamed.
The young man had come from
Kiev and had never entered a
synagogue in his life; in his city it
was forbidden.
Only in Leningrad and Moscow
were Jews allowed to go to the
synagogue, but most stayed
away. All feared the reper-
Another young Russian had
come out to the courtyard after a
few minutes inside, trying to
understand it all. All of the
people standing outside shared
the same feeling of confusion and
eagerness. They didn't under-
stand, but they knew it was a
new beginning.
I asked why they came. A
young man of 26 told me, "We
were not allowed to go to a syna-
gogue in the USSR, and if we did
not come to this synagogue now
that we are outside the Soviet
Union, what kind of Jews would
we be?" His father had said to
him that he could not teach any-
thing to his son because he did
not know a thing about Judaism
In the USSR, he said, they
could not get any reading
material; here and in Israel they
would welcome anything that
would give them the opportunity

to learn.
Some said they were atheists;
that's how they were brought up.
Parents were not allowed to teach
religion to children; it was
against the law and they could be
punished for it. The young people
knew they were Jews only
because they were constantly
reminded of it, but had not the
slightest notion of Jewish history
or traditions.
After the service, the Kiddush
attracted everybody and there
was such a crowd inside that I
could barely see what was being
served. Everyone was cheerful.
Many were moved. They said
"Happy New Year" to each other
and then slowly moved out,
looking happy at having at-
tended the service. For most of

Addressing members of the JDC Executive Committee,
leaders of the United Jewish Appeal and other Jewish comm
organizations, prominent rabbis and guests, Ambassador H
"We are gathered here in New York as others are gathered all I
over the world not because of the unusual nature of this festival j
but because of the profound significance it has for us, reflecting I
as it does the essential civilization of our faith and the meani
of Jewish life."
Under constant attack in the United Nations, Ambassador
Herzog could not help comparing the goals and achievements o:
Israel with those of his tormentors.
"I think of what our civilization and our people stand for and
what our country has done under the most impossible con-
dictions. When I look at those countries and consider the
hundreds of millions of poverty-stricken human beings, the
millions in prison, in concentration camps, the lack of education,
the disease, the malnutrition, and I look at our small and
from the point of view of size insignificant little country,
backed by the Jewish people and all that we stand for in the world
today, consider the civilization that we have created, the
pluralistic society which, despite all its problems, is a model for
most of the world today, I am proud.

"I CONSIDER how we treated our refugees throughout the i
ages, particularly over the past 30 years, with reference to what
the Joint Distribution Committee has done. I compare that with
the fate of half a million Arab refugees who are maintained by
public charity, particularly American charity, to this day, and
whose brethren have not got the time to rise from the gaming
tables of Las Vegas and Monte Carlo, where they are gambling
away billions of petrodollars, to look after their own people, I
realize what a civilized people we are. I realize what we represent
and I am proud," Herzog said.
Among the distinguished guests from Israel were Avraham
Harman, president of The Hebrew University and former am-
bassador from Israel to the United States, and Mrs. Harman.
Harman spoke of the association of three revered leaders of the
Joint Distribution Committee with The Hebrew University: i
Paul Baerwald, JDC chairman from 1932 to 1940, for whom
the Paul Baerwald School of Social Work was named. The
Baerwald School, part of The Hebrew University and built by
the JDC, was the first social work school to be opened in Israel,
Harman said. I
Moses A. Leavitt, for whom the library in the Paul Baerwald
School is named, was also built by the JDC. Leavitt was executive
vice chairman of the JDC from 1947 to 1965, and before that was
Dr. Joseph J. Schwartz, chairman of the European Executive
Council from 1942 to 1950, the critical years of the Holocaust
and the years of rescue and rehabilitation. The Dr. Joseph J.
Schwartz Program, part of the Paul Baerwald School, provides
graduate training for community center directors and senior
personnel. The program was started by the JDC which continues
to provide professional guidance and financial support.
Robert Arnow, chairman of the New York UJA /
Federation Joint Campaign cited the importance of the current
campaigns of. the United Jewish Appeal and lirged greater
support. The UJA provides the bulk of JDC's annual budget,
which this year will exceed $35 million.

Jewish Telegraphic Agency
obtained the transcript of Gen.
George S. Brown's interview with
Raanan Lurie. As released by
King Features Syndicate,
Brown's remarks are as follows:
LURIE: Speaking about the
Middle East, from a pure mili-
tary point of view, would you
say that from the American
strategic-global strategic-
interests, militarily is Israel and
its forces more a burden of more
a blessing from a pure military
point of view to the United
BROWN: Well. I think it's
just got to be considered a
burden. I had this same con-
versation with (Senator Jacob)
Javits right after I got in trouble
down at Duke. We had breakfast
and we were talking, and he said
to me, "Can't you see the great
strategic value of Israel to the
United States?" And I said,
"Frankly, no," which wasn't
what I was talking about at Duke
at all. But my concern there is
that they're a burden. Now if the
trends were reversed, then I
could see in the long term where
it might be a tremendous asset,
where they would gain power and
could bring about stability in the
LURIE: If Israel would win,
for instance.
BROWN: But you see, the
problem today is today there's
stability because Israel is strong.
She could whip Syria and Egypt
handily, and there's nobody else
that could check them in that
area, unless the Russians took a
direct hand. By that I mean send
forces in addition to equipment
and advisors. And that's not
likely. It's just not worth the
game at this point. But with all
the money, the wealth .. that
the Arabs have through Saudi
Arabia with the Trucial
States primarily, and Libya
secondly, to buy weapons, to
train people and they're
breeding at a hell of a high rate
the birth rate is ... the
population growth is far greater
than in Israel.
And the long term outlook is
that the Arab states are going to
overcome the deficiency that
they've had, which is leadership
and technology and educated
people. And I just don't see any
. .. it's going to take a complete
change in outlook on Israel's
part. Up to this point at least
she's maintained her position,
and I must say, if I were in her
shoes, I don't know, I'd be in a
terrible dilemma because she's
surrounded by people who'd just
as soon see her pushed into the
LURIE: You don't think they
really want to have a legitimate,
down-to-earth peace the
Arabs, I mean?
BROWN: Oh, I don't ... I
think they do in the short term.
But I don't in 15-20 years.
Because they have no other
option. I would think that if, for
instance, if Saudi Arabia, which
is the key to the thing because
she has the wealth, could just go
on a nation-building program. .
that would keep it totally oc-
cupied for a long time, and then
to help Egypt to get on her feet
economically and what not, they
couldn't worry about Israel. But
they've got a thing that they are
k-ery, very sincere about these
low Lands. And some accom-
modation has got to be found
rhere Jerusalem can be shared
By the religions that, you know,
to whom the area is meaningful.
'But I can't see Israel as an asset
to the United States today.
LURIE: And this theory that
paralleling it, for instance, to
France. Once France detached
herself from Israel, the fact is
that France lost any leverage
whatsoever she had with the
Arabs because she put herself
out of the game. Right now, the
United States is the only power,
the only force in the world that
has any leverage whatsoever on
the Israelis. Therefore they have
tremendous clout with the
BROWN: That's exactly
right. We've got a little with the
Saudis, I think, if we use it
wisely, because of the Saudis'
concern for Communism.
LURIE: Right.
BROWN: You know, I think
genuinely the Saudis are ... As
I said, I think the Saudis are
genuinely concerned about the
Soviets and Communists.
They're concerned about Israel
primarily because of the Holy
Lands. They want entree to
Jerusalem. I think that they
genuinely have a concern for the
PLO and all those other general
problems, but they're not real
heartburn issues with them. At
least that's what I detect from
my limited conversation with
LURIE: Following your way
of thinking, with which I happen
to agree very much about the
Saudis computing the Com-
munist factor, and so on, I
wonder if the Saudis are really
that fanatically in love with the
PLO due to the fact that the
PLO, basically, once they estab-
lish themselves, they will have
another Albania in the Middle
BROWN: Exactly.
LURIE: That's for sure.
Therefore, maybe it's just some
kind of lip service, because
basically I don't think they are
so happy to have this kind of
threat because .
BROWN: Not only that,
Raanan, they might, you know,
if they get some land and estab-
lish a Palestinian state, it's not
going to be a viable thing.
Somebody'8 going to have to
support them. They're going to
look to the Arabs to support
them .
LURIE: Of course.
BROWN: And the fellow with
the money is Saudi Arabia.
LURIE: The rich uncle.
BROWN: That's right. Now,
the other concern over there
really is Iran, and the puzzling
question of why she is building
such a tremendous military
force. She couldn't with her
population do anything that
would provide protection from
the Soviet Union, if there is a
real threat there. She's got
adequate power now to handle
Afghanistan and Pakistan, so,
you know, if they were a threat
you could discount that .
she's a little better than a match
for Iraq now. And my gosh, the
programs the Shah has coming.
It just makes you wonder about
whether he doesn't some day
have visions of the Persian
LURIE: Certainly.
BROWN: They don't call that
the Persian Gulf for nothing.
But of course our concern for the
Middle East is that tremendous
flow of oil. Our dependence on,
what, 17 or 18 percent now, I
guess, of our national con-
sumption. And all of Europe,
Japan. It's just got to continue
to flow, or, the world is going to
change. It's not going to be the
world we know today.
LURIE: What about Lebanon
right now, changing into what
we can call by pragmatic terms a
new, very extreme left regime in
a very vital spot?
BROWN: Wen, it could, but
I 'm not prepared to be quite that
optimistic ... if this cease-fire
LURIE: I'm sorry ... I'm
pessimistic because I said
it's becoming a left regime.
BROWN: I say ... you're
pessimistic but I'm a little
more optimistic. I think that if
this cease-fire holds through the
end of the month (inaudible).
The Syrians have been very con-
strained in their military effort
and have provided the
stabilizing balance there. If we
get a regime, if something comes
out of this election that is not as
radical as you suspect it might
be, it will have Syrian support.
And maybe, just maybe, they
could carry it off. If it comes out
too radical, I think we're going
to have continued trouble over
there within Lebanon.
It's been amazing to me that
they've been able to fight this
long, on the scale that they have,
and with the tremendous
destruction and disruption of the
country, and have the rest of the
Middle East kind of keep hands
off. The Syrians have sort of
boxed it in order to maintain
some degree of control without
actually getting in and taking
the place over. And the Israelis
have been very restrained. Both
have made statements that the
other understands .
LURIE: Are the Israelis
restrained also because of
American pressure?
BROWN: As far as I know, it
hasn't been necessary to apply
any. I think they're restrained
primarily because this isn't the
provocation over which they are
prepared to go to war. The
lesson of the last war to them
was that the casualties were a
heck of a lot heavier than they're
prepared to take. A few years
ago, in some of the earlier wars,
they were quickly decisive. The
casualties were reasonable,
although they don't want to take
This last time they took very
heavy casualties the first four or
five days. And I don't think that
small country wants to see that
again or can afford to see it.
Politically they can't afford to.
They've got tremendous internal
problems, as you know better
than I. You've been over there.
They're over-extended because of
the tremendous military burden
they have, and I guess if we were
in their straits, we would be, too.
U.S. Defense Sec'y. Says
Israel to Get Four Weapons
TEL AVIV (JTA) U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense
William Clements confirmed four of the it&ns on Israel's
military purchase list approved by President Ford last week.
Clements, and his party of military experts and ranking of-
ficers, departed for Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, after three days of
conferences with top Israeli political and military leaders.
Two of the items that Israel will receive are already in use
by Israel's aimed forces the M-60 heavy tank and 155 mm
THE NEW items are air-fuel cluster bombs, sometimes
Referred to as concussion bombs, and infra-red sensor systems
or night fighting, known as FLIR. Clements did not refer to
the Hellfjre anti-tank missiles which have not yet been in-
troduced into the American arsenal.
He said Israel would get delivery of the requested items in
due time but reiterated that some weapons will take up to three
years for delivery.

Our Crowo
By Roz fleminq
Katzir Greets UJA Delegation
Have you wondered where I' ve
been for the paat month? Well, I
was home recovering from an
operation and now I know
why people have a compulsion to
tell anybody who will listen about
their "operation." It becomes a
major force in your life .
because, somehow, your body is
never the same. Someone has
actually cut into your flesh and
seen inside it. The scar is only a
reminder that the body is just the
housing ... it can be cut into and
altered but it doesn't change
the person. A very interesting
experience but I hope once is
enough. However, because of
surgery, this was the year that I
lost the Holidays.
You know when I was a
kid, Passover was my favorite
holiday ... I guess because so
much was going on ... all the
special food and all the family to-
gether in my grandparents home
... the long seder the wine
. everything was so exciting.
As I grew older though, it began
to take second place to the High
Holidays and lately I realized
that it was Yom Kippur, in all its
solemn beauty, that I most
looked forward to each fall.
Each year the fasting was
easier and more meaningful for
me. Each year I would sit in
Temple and find through the
chanting and the prayers that the
world outside had no hold on me
... I was One with every other
Jew in the world one with my
past, remembering how it was as
a child to sit upstairs with my
grandmother and and watch the
men downstairs especially

Well, this year ... I could not
attend services. I did fast... but
it wasn't the same. I missed the
service missed touching the
Torah missed the chanting of
our Cantor missed the
Rabbi's sermon missed my
friends. I was still a Jew, and it
was still Yom Kippur ... but
sharing the day with my fellow
Jews was missing and I felt I
had lost the Holidays. Next time

The largest ever delegation of
American Jewish leaders
more than 3,000 of them were
joined by 4,000 Israelis at the
Yad Eliahu sports stadium in
Tel Aviv for the opening of the
first United Jewish Appeal
national conference ever to be
held in Israel.
The event turned into a mass
demonstration of solidarity with
Israel, a theme stressed by Pres-
ident Ephraim Katzir who ad-
dressed the throng and received
a standing ovation when he
declared: "You are not strangers
to this country. You are part of
our families and thousands of
homes are open to you to share
with you our hopes and dreams."
THE UJA delegates each wore
a navy blue jacket with the
slogan, "This Year in
Jerusalem," stencilled in gold.
As they entered the stadium
they were greeted by Israeli
woman soldiers who pinned
carnations on their jackets. An

HE STRESSED, however,
that Israel's future required the
immigration of Western Jews as
well. He did not ignore the
shortcomings of Israeli society.
He said the country needed the
joint efforts of world Jewry to
overcome them. He predicted
that in the long run, Israel would
enjoy peace and cooperation with
its neighbors.

general chairman of the UJA,
observed in his speech that
whereas some say that Israel is a
burden, "We say that Israel is
not only not a burden but a
source of inspiration to freedom-
loving people everywhere."
He was referring to a remark
made by U.S. Gen. George S.
Brown that Israel was a military
"burden" on the U.S. Lauten-
berg pledged that the American-
Jewish community would
continue to support Israel with
greater zeal and greater effort
than ever before.
"We want to tell the entire
world that our lives are tied to
Israel by eternal ties," he said.

B'nai B'rith Breaks Ground For
4.9 Million High Rise in Pa.
READING, Pa. A formal ground-breaking last week opened
construction here of a $4.91-million high rise, the seventh in a series
of B'nai B'rith-sponsored non-profit housing projects for the elderly.
The 175 rental units in the 12-story development, ready for oc-
cupancy by March, 1978, are already fully rented and authorities
reported a "sizeable" waiting list.
B'nai B'rith officials also announced that the Department of
Housing and Urban Development had granted approval for a $5.6
million complex in Allentown, Pa., for which construction will begin
next spring.
Gafni Picked to Become
Bank of Israel Governor
The Cabinet has ap-
proved the appointment of
Arnon Gafni, director gen-
eral of the Finance
Ministry, to the post of
Governor of the Bank of

rescinded the appointment
of As her Yadlin, who was

and other illegal acts while
chairman of Kupat Holim,
the Histadrut sick fund.
PREMIER Yitzhak Rabin,
who proposed Gafni, stressed
that his nomination should not
be construed as a pre-judgment
of guilt on the part of Yadlin,
who was Rabin's original choice
for the post.
He also said it was in no way
an attempt to influence the
current police investigation of
Yadlin and several of his

Talmud, under the supervision of

Israel, Sunrise, at 9:46.
This class is conducted in
English. No previous Talmud
knowledge is required.
The Cabinet's official
neutrality in the Yadlin affair
was indicated by the fact that
Gafni was appointed only after
Rabin had asked State Atty.
Gen. Aharon Barak whether the
police could conclude their in-
vestigation by Nov. 1, when the
new Governor of the Bank of
Israel is scheduled to take office,
and whether it was possible to
name a deputy governor to take
charge until Yadlin's fate is
Barak replied in the negative
to both questions.
GAFNI 44, a professional
economist, is regarded as well
qualified for the prestigious and
influential post as head of the
Bank of Israel.
Objections to his appointment
were raised by Finance Minister
Yehoshua Rabinowitz, who did
not want to lose his key man in
the Treasury. But Rabinowitz
agreed to release Gafni from his
duties at the Finance Ministry.

A Day In
Dedicated to the Memory
of the UN Partition
of Palestine, November 29,1947
A day in November mid an ocean
of tears,
A time to remember, those death
colored years,
From the Council of Nations, the
news was announced,
That right had prevailed,
And truth was pronounced.
A truth overdue, and bought
with the pain,
Of innocent victims, whose
suffering ordained,
That the Prophets of God, in
mysterious ways,
Had a miracle wrought on this
hope-filled day.
A day in November, when fruit
on the vine,
Was ripe and impatient to soon
become wine,
There was blood on the moon,
and the night stiff with chill,
There was joy tinged with
and indomitable will.
The people of Israel at last were
at home,
But an ominous sound, like an
animal's moan,
Was threatening this Nation,
born of travail,
And stirring this people to acts
that we hail,
Let us stand in salute, to the
strength of the brave,
And over this land, may a proud
banner wave,
Let there glow in our hearts, a
glorious ember,
We shall never forget that day in
for ttta holidays?"
For great Jewish food... I

thought I might as well do it now
rather than wait until I can retire
and live off a pension. I thought
it would be nice to make my own
way here."
An important factor was the
sense of challenge. Bernstein
wanted to test himself and his
capabilities in a new setting.
Israel's financial troubles de-
valuations and inflation, for
example only served to
sharpen his competitive in-
"The more people say things
like that to me, the more I can
smell success, and I can see it. I
can see daylight every day," he
From a professional and
business point of view then,
Bernstein is more than satisfied.
He is convinced that there are
tremendous opportunities in
Israel, despite the headlines, and
he is not hesitant about urging
other American pharmacists to
use his story as an example.
"In the first place," he says,
"an American druggist does not
have the opportunity to own his
own business today. It is im-
possible. If I opened up this store
today in the States, I'd guarantee
you that within six months
there'd be a Sav-on or Kruger
giant on the opposite corner, and
I'd be wiped out in another six
months. So as far as a business
opportunity for a pharmacist is
concerned, this is something that
I don't have to sell. They just
have to be here for a week and
they'll see."
Informality is a hallmark of
Israeli business and Clyde
Bernstein's drugstore. Instead of
the white coat he wore in
America, his work uniform
consists of sneakers, slacks and
an open sport shirt. Customers
can be depended upon to pay in a
few days' time if their pockets are
empty when they make a pur-
chase. Suppliers, too, are more
flexible. Two months to settle an
account is the norm.
"It's fun doing business with
Israelis," concludes Bernstein.
"It is a ball, that's all I can say.
Also, things are more humane in
business here. They may appear
cutthroat, but most customers
walk out with a smile on their
faces, most salesmen do, too, and
at the end of the day i walk out
with a smile on my face. Its
much looser, much more casual
and much more fun, as a result.'

tinued, "are pledged to improve
the quality of life, physical and

U.S. Navy Signalmen hoist first Jewish Worship Pennant in
U.S. Navy aboard USS Guam in Norfolk, Va. Until now, there
has never been a Jewish pennant flying when Jewish worship
services were conducted. The idea for a Jewish pennant came
from a Catholic priest Rear Admiral John J. O'Connor,
Chief of Chaplains, U.S. Navy. It was endorsed and the design
was approved by the JWB Commission on Jewish Chaplaincy,
the body which accredits and serves Jewish chaplains and
military lay leaders. The Christian Church Pennant and
Jewish Worship Pennant are the only pennants ever allowed
to fly above the U.S. national flag.

Meet With
PLO Reps
prominent Israelis of dove-ish or
leftist orientation met with two
leaders of the Palestine Lib-
eration Organization at a private
home in Paris last weekend, it
was confirmed here. The meeting,
arranged at the initiative of the
PLO, ended inconclusively,
sources here said. The Israeli
participants were identified as
MK Meir Payil of Moked; Gen.
(Res.) Matetyahu Peled; Yaacov
Arnon. former director general of
Israel's Finance Ministry; and
Uri Avneri, editor of the
magazine Haolam Haze.
THE PLO leaders were not
identified by mutual agreement.
Israeli sources said they were not
Farouk Kaddoumi or Said
Hammai. Moked confirmed the
facts of the meeting.
The PLO was apparently
interested in discussing the
situation in Lebanon and Israel's
involvement there. But no agree-
ments were reached. It was
learned that the Israelis said they
were prepared to help create the
basis for a dialogue with the PLO
and mutual recognition if the
PLO was prepared to
acknowledge Israel's right to
exist in its pre-June, 1967,
But the PLO people reportedly
were reluctant to make any com-
mitment involving the
recognition of Israel. According
to the sources, they suggested
that PLO participation in the
Geneva peace conference could be
taken by Israel as de facto
Soviet police arrested 25
of the 52 Moscow Jews
who demonstrated in a
building of the Supreme
Soviet to demand an ex-
planation of why their visa
applications have been
consistently rejected, the
Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry reported:
According to the SSSJ,
the activists were seized by
Soviet police outside then-
homes, in the streets and
in a reception room of the
Supreme Soviet where pe-
titioners normally gather.
AMONG THEM was Vladimir
Slepak, a radio and television
engineer who is the leader of the
Jewish emigration activists in
the Soviet Union.
The SSSJ also reported that
three of the four Jews arrested at
a Moscow demonstration have
been sentenced to 15-day jail
terms for "hooliganism."
They are Arkady Polishuck,
Mikhail Kremen and Victor
Yelistratov. The status of the
fourth, Boris Chernobilosky, was
were the aftermath of a march
by 52 Jewish "refusniks"
through Moscow from the Min-
istry of Interior to the Supreme
Soviet. The marchers, wearing
large yellow stars, said they had
received "absolutely unsatis-
factory answers" from Interior
Minister Nikolai Shcholokov and
an official of the Central Com-
mittee of the Supreme Soviet as
to why they are denied visas.
Shcholokov had agreed to
meet with a delegation of ac-
tivists following the beatings,
but according. to the SSSJ
refused to discuss them because
"I am not responsible for the
security of the Supreme Soviet."
About 30 Jews sat in at the
Supreme Soviet building to
I protest the recent arrests.
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry termed the arrests
a "disturbing escalation" by
Soviet authorities of punitive
measures against those
petitioning for their right to
chairman, urged the Soviet
government to immediately
release those arrested.
"Obviously, this act is a flagrant
violation of the Helsinki Final
Act which guarantees the free
movement of people, ideas and
information," he said.
Sen. James L. Buckley (R-C,
N.Y.) said in a statement issued
here that "Last week's vicious
beatings of Jewish protesters by
Moscow police confirm our worst
suspicions of the Helsinki Ac-
cords, recent trade agreements
and the stated objectives of the
policy of detente."
Moscow's newest "refusenik"
denied exit from the Soviet
Union is 19-year-old cinema
student Igor Tufeld, depicted
in a photo obtained by the
Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry. Tufeld recently under-
went ritual circumcision,
declaring, "I want to live in
Israel and become a full
Jew." A week after his
refusal, Igor was sentenced to
15 days for joining other Jews
who sat in at the Supreme
Soviet demanding emigration.

to avoid a crisis in Africa or the
Middle East. They didn't want
to embarrass Ford during the
presidential campaign.
They were also more co-
operative in the secret dis-
armament negotiations. They
made several pre-election con-
cessions without giving up any
major points. There is reason to
believe that they were trying to
offer Ford a pre-election arms

political bonus to help him win

Golem: a Jewish Legend (J- B. Lippincott, 39 pp.,
S8.95I. a children's book, has received much attention
since its recent publication. Many have praised the
bright, bold color paintings she created expressly for
this story.
She was inspired to do the legend of the Golem as a
picture book after seeing the German film The Golem,
which was made in the 1920s. McDermott studied the
Hebrew alphabet and the meaning of its letters in
Kabbalah. She then integrated the Kabbalistic
phenomenon in her work.
Her retelling of the legend is modern. With pictures,
it presents a different and vivid approach to this story
from Y. L. Peretz's famous version.
HOLLYWOOD The Sheik of Araby" is the title of Stanley
Kramer's next picture, the veteran movie producer-director told
me during an interview. Kramer currently is completing the
editing of "The Domino Principle." based on Adam Kennedy's
best seller dealing with the individual's fight against a massive
and nameless organization.
Gene Hackman portrays a criminal caught in the whirlpool of
intrigue and set up as the "fall guy" by the secret militant
society. He is surrounded on the screen by Candice Bergen.
Richard Widmark. Mickey Rooney and Edward Albert.
ELI WALLACH has the key role of General Reser who
masterminds the clandestine activities and who doesn't shrink
back from rut bless assassinations.
"The Sheik of Araby." for a change of pace and mood, will be a
comedy, but according to Kramer, one with a spark of truth in the
disguise of pure fun.
The screen original by Stanford Sherman, and the subsequent
scenario by Frank Waltman. kids around with the feudal Arab
dignitaries who have invaded the capitals of Europe as well as
America with their overflow of money and now are the free-
spenders in the hotels and nightclub-casinos of London. Paris.
Palm Beech and New York.
HOWEVER, the Sheik our main title refers to (hopefully to be
portrayed by Alan Arkin> is awfully poor: he is the only one
among his brethren who possesses no oil wells and has to get
along by the meager sale of a few antique statues or imitation
jewelry, until one day. when the desert earth erupts in a violen-.
quake and large gushers pour an overflow of oil unto his shabby
sheikhdom. When the "disaster" is controlled, it becomes clear
that our nebbish sheik now owns 70 percent of all the world's oil
reserve Now the farce accelerates.
Kramer says jokingly that he tries to cast not one but two Jews
in the roles of Arab potentates. In addition to Arkin. there also
will be Gabe Kaplan in traditional Moslem headgear.
The two principals are going to be surrounded by an all-star
cast, very much in the vein of Kramer's "It's a Mad. Mad. Mad.
Mad World." The tune. "The Sheik of .Araby." will be in
corporated into wildly funny happenings .
"THE FRONT." the new Martin Ritt picture written by Wake
Bernstein (both blacklisted during the McCarthy era), takes n
sat irical look at the hysteria of the early 1950s ridiculing not only
the House Unamerican Activities Committee but also the lack of
hackbone and dignky shown by members of the entertainment
industry, especially studio executives: in this particular case, the
high brass in network television, most of whom apologize that
they wished it didn't happen when they fired "red-tainted"
writers, directors and actors.
Bernstein strongly believes that if those in high places in the
industry bad tak. a firm stand in the beginning, the witch hum

WOODY ALLEN is portraying the central character of a nitwit
who advances from the cash register in a "deb" to front for a
famous television writer, actually as "Woody Allen" in an im-

Religious fRee6om Once
again Being assailed
NOW THAT the Supreme Court has decided
to let a Maryland law stand allowing taxpayers'
money to be used in church-related colleges, new
cries are going up for public aid to parochial
schools and for reintroduction of prayers in
In these grave issues, as in comparable ones,
the Jewish community reveals new cracks in the
old wall of unity. "Thus, one segment of the
American Rabbinical Assembly is pressing anew
for government subsidies for Jewish day schools
even though, officially, that body has in the past
gone along with major Jewish opposition to
federal aid.
AND BY way of reminding the American
public that traditional church-state separation
doctrines are being violated constantly, the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith reported on a
survey recently, revealing that more than 90
percent of the nation's public schools have

Reading now of the highest court's decision in
the Maryland case and surprising criticism of
First Amendment defenders by such well-placed
pundits as WilbaaJfcV Shannon of The New York
Times, those orwwho have been through the
disestablishment oat ties for a third of a century
are understandably disturbed.
INDEED, inasmuch as a part of the
motivation for the new campaign to water down
the First Amendment stems from civic euphoria
churned up by tbe Bicentennial celebration, it
seems instructive to quote from one of the great
colonials who has helped make the 200th jubilee
His name? John Adams of the Adams
Chronicles. Deeply religious, tbe second
President of the United States, back in the days
when American statesmen were debating Bill of I
Rights proposals, wrote to Thomas Jefferson: m
"Twenty times in the course of my late reading,
have I been on the point of breaking out. This |
would be the best of all possible worlds, if there
were no religion in it.'
If you take a close look at the Maryland ruling
in favor of church-related colleges, you will find I
that the reasoning of three of the justices was m
that tax money going to such colleges had a
secular purpose, did not have as a primary
purpose the advancement of religion and did not "
entangle the state in church affairs excessively

JUDGES DIFFERING with this conclusion
were realistic enough to recall that even if such
tax monies were used for custodial pay. heating
and snow shoveling, the benefiting colleges
would be saving up funds which could be used to
teach compulsory courses in theology. So the
wall of separation breach is fairly obvious.
In a decision last year, tbe highest court by a
vote of 6-to-3 ruled that government funds may
not be used to supply salaries, educational
equipment and supplies for nonpubl Jfchools.
But the drive to gloss over the religious
freedom rights of children in the public schools
continues month after month
