Why we say (faddish
The Kaddish is one of the oldest prayers in
Jewish has been recited countless
numbers of times since Biblical days.ln
ancient times the Kaddish was the prayer that
concluded a session of Torah study. However,
in the Middle Ages it assumed special
significance as a mourner's prayer.Yet, in a
real sense it is not a prayer for the dead.
Rather, it is a prayer for the living. A moving
statement in praise of God and a plea for the
ultimate redemption and salvation of all
For the bereaved, the Kaddish is a very
personal expression honoring the soul of a
deceased parent or close relative. But at the
same time, it is a celebration of life, a pledge
to live on in the tradition of the parents and
the Jewish people.
In a time of grief, when the feeling of loss
is most acute, it becomes a true act of faith
and devotion to stand and say the words of
trust and praise expressed so beautifully
in the Kaddish.
Throughout our history, these words have
been the bond that has held us together
through times of joy and sadness as a People
and a Faith.
It's what makes us Jews.

5 Germans Sentenced
BONN (JTA) Five elderly Germans who formerly
belonged to the Gestapo were sentenced to various terms of
imprisonment by a court at Giessen for complicity in the
murder of hundreds of Poles, including Jews.
The five were involved in selection of people for "special
treatment" at Gestapo headquarters at Ciechanaow, Poland,
which was annexed by Germany in 1939 and incorporated into
East Prussia.
ACCORDING TO the court, the rulers of the Third Reich
held the "chief responsibility" for the murders. But the court
rejected the claim by the accused that they did not know
"special treatment" meant execution.
Two accused, Hermann Schaper, 65, and Dr. Erich Bartels,
68, were each sentenced to six years' imprisonment. Both are
facing separate charges in another case being heard at Giessen.
OTHERS SENTENCED were Franz Hartmann, 67 (four
and a half years), Hans Doerhage, 70, and Kurt Baresel, 50
(four years and three months each).
Another accused, Ernst Schardt, 65, was acquitted, and
charge^ against Otto Roehr, 69, were dropped.

LONDON (JTA) The Palestine Liberation Organ-

the PLO's London representative affirmed here last week.
Interviewed in the magazine Events, Said Hammami
added that he did not mean Israel's "destruction by massacre,"
but "I would love this State to disappear. Nothing would make
me happier, if, instead, there were one united secular state of
Palestine in which all Jews and Arabs co-exist in a one-man,
one-vote system. That is what Palestinians dream of all of

Belgian government announced
here that its authorization to the
Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization to open a permanent
information bureau in Brussels is
a routine affair and does not con-
stitute recognition of the PLO.
The Belgian government's
communique stressed that
"juridically" Belgian legislation
does not prevent a foreign organ-
ization from operating a bureau if
its activities are not contrary to
local laws. These bureaus have no
diplomatic status.

On Jewish Education
In our comment here the other week on goals for the
coming decade as defined at the opening of the General
Assembly of the Conference of Jewish Federations and
Welfare Funds in Philadelphia, we took note of the
complexity of American Jewry's intentions and of their
praiseworthy purpose.
We also took exception to the absence of any reference
to Jewish education as a leading element among these
goals. Without an expanding Jewish education, we said.
American JewTy is in serious danger of turning from a
genuine religious identity to a loosely-affiliated group of
people embracing common but broad ethnic goals.
And therefore, we warned, in serious danger of ultimate
We are therefore delighted to note the address by Dr.
Daniel J. Elazar of Temple University at the closing
session of the General Assembly, in which Dr. Elazar
predicted that Jewish education "will be the battleground
in the merger"' of Federations and synagogues in
American Jewish life in the foreseeable future.
What this suggests is a growing link between these two
key institutions rather than a loose affiliation, a tie by suf-
ferance or even the kind of shielded competitiveness that
existed in the past.
To emphasize the point, delegates to the GA heard that
some $23 million was spent by Federations for Jewish
education last year.
The suggestion is that more, a good deal more, is in the
offing in the future.
In terms of Jewish survival, this makes eminent sense.
U.S. Schizophrenia
There is an absolute schizophrenia in our United
Nations diplomacy.
On the one hand, the Ford Administration instructs
Ambassador William Scranton to vote for the Arab-
concocted resolution censuring Israel's "illegal" oc-
cupation of New Jerusalem and of Israel's construction of
settlements in the former Arab territories.
On the other, the Ford Administration's instructions to
Ambassador Scranton to vote against the Palestine
Committee report recommending Israel's withdrawal from
the former Arab territories by June, 1977, and the
establishment of a Palestinian entity under the aegis of
the PLO in these territories.
"Nowhere." explains Scranton. "is there a mention in
the resolution of the right of an Israel to exist in the
Middle East." That, we are meant to understand, is the
reason for the switch.
Return to Status Quo Ante
But why should the Arabs mention so foreign a thing?
In what way do Scranton or the Ford Administration
demand it. other than by lip-service?
When the American delegation supports a return to the
1967 status quo ante, there simply is no profit in an Arab
consensus on the survival of Israel. A return to the status
quo ante is simply another way of affirming the ultimate
destruction of Israel.
Does Egypt recall do any of the Arabs recall that
it was Henry Kissinger's maneuvering that denied Israel
another crushing victory of Egyptian forces in the 1973
The truth is that, as Arab history sees it. the 1973 war
was Egypt's finest hour and her greatest triumph over a
defeated Israel.
In the same s*nse. a return to the 1967 status quo ante
would be tantamount to erasing the meaning of the Six-
Day War
America's muddleheadedness at the UN is more than a
sign of the Ford Administration's schizophrenia. It is a
threat to Israel's survival.

said that since last year's
General Assembly, where
Israel raised the issue of
Soviet and Syrian Jewry,
there has been no improve-
ment in the condition of
those communities.
EILAN SAID that Soviet
Jews are persecuted and subject
to pressures to deter them from
applying for exit visas. "Dis-
crimination takes different
forms." he said.
"It is true that the persecution
of Jews in Soviet Russia these
days is not the same as that seen
in the days of the bloody
pogroms during the regime of the
Czars or the mass executions in
the time of Stalin.
"However, from his first steps
in school to the day he has to
queue up for his Old Age Pen-
sion, the Jew in Russia is isolated
from the rest of the population by
the daily grinding toll of humili-
ation and ostracism."
The Israeli representative said
the struggle of Soviet Jews is for
'the right to go where they can
be free to practice their religion
and where they can be sure that
their children will not be brar-
ded. "
Jewry as a "hostage com-
munity." He charged that the
Jews of Syria are still not allowed
to travel outside of that country
without leaving their relatives for
ransom and are required to
deposit the equivalent of $6,000.
Eve travel inside Syria is
severely restricted for Jews, he
He also noted that the
promises of Syrian spokesmen to
cancel the imprint of the word
Mussawi (Mosaic faith) on the
identity cards for Syrian Jews
has not been fulfilled.
Eilan called on all member
states to denounce the tragic
conditions under which Svrian
Jewry is still held.

Sabbath Observer Promoted
NEW YORK Following nearly 18 months of legal proceedings,
Daniel Polevoy, a Sabbath observer, has been promoted by New York

Kwestel. president of the National Jewish Commission on Law and
Public Affairs.
introduced to the Senator only,
not the President, because the
person making the introductions
seemed not to have the courage
to go all the way.
In the years since then, I have
"discovered" that Sen. Ken-
nedy's remark must surely have
been a mere pleasantry because
Jewish Republicans are not a
phenomenon at all.
AS FOR meeting President
Kennedy, well that occurred
later, four days before his murder
in Dallas. Things have a way of
straightening themselves out,
however tragically.
I am brought to these
recollections now because of the
headlines both Ribicoff and
Javits have been making during
the past month or so. They
disturb the memories of the past,
leaving me not with a sense of
warmth but of bewilderment and
even anger.
The Ribicoff headlines center
on his meeting with Egypt's
President Sadat in Cairo, where
Sadat managed to convince Ribi-
coff that Israel is the "stubborn"
and "intransigent" party in the
Middle East.
RIBICOFF came away from
the meeting with the public
statement that Sadat is a true
Arab moderate, and that we had
better do what he suggests, or
the jig is up for Israel.
Javits has a similar claim to
fame in his recent statements
about Israel's militance in the oc-
cupied territories with the estab-
lishment of Jewish settlements
there and the danger that these
settlements pose to peace in the
Middle East.
If these two Senators choose to
act like a reconstituted Judenrat
Jews who spied on Jews in the
Hitler concentration camps to
save their own miserable skins
that is their privilege.
The trouble is. they have not
stopped there. They have gone
beyond their bipartisan effort
designed to warm the cockles of
the heart of every enemy of Israel
from the Pentagon to the inner
sanctum of Col. Qadaffi's secret
NOW. they are urging that the
incoming Carter administration
retain Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger in some special diplo
matic assignment that would
continue his alleged good works
in the Middle East toward the
achievement of an Israel-Arab
How dare these shoddy
congressional opportunists ask
for a reversal of the American po-
litical process? For that is what it
would be. were President-Elect
Carter to heed their pleas.
It is beside the point here to
catalogue the specific ghoulish
monstrosities that have charac-
terized the Kissinger-Nixon,
Kissinger-Ford regimes.
IN THIS column. I have often
enough detailed Henry Kis-
singer's corrupt vision of himself
as a Bismarck reborn, and par-
ticularly with respect to his cruel
manipulation of Israel's destiny.
The lives and the blood of
untold thousands of Israel's
finest young men will forever lie
on Kissinger's manifold manip-
ulations and on the tainted Kis-
singer name generally, which to
this very moment knows no
honor save what Kissinger,
himself, once called "the ultimate
aphrodisiac" of power.
Or save what he has charac-
terized as the primary purpose of
his "statesmanship," which is to
"manipulate reality."
IN ALL these things, Kis-
singer has wallowed dis-
gustingly: and he continues,
apparently, to do so until the
final hour of the Nixon-Ford
administration, upon whose head
he has placed the ultimate crown,
with the U.S. vote the other week

Delegation of Four U.S. Scholars Chosen for Symposium
A delegation of four Amer-
ican Jewish scholars has
been chosen to go to Mos-
cow in response to a world-
wide call for Jewish
scholars to attend a three-
day symposium in Moscow
organized by a small group
of Soviet Jews, an official of
the Association for Jewish
Studies (AJS) said here.
The AJS was one of the
Jewish groups which re-
ceived the invitation, ac-
cording to Dr. Leon A.
Jick, director of the Center
for Contemporary Jewish
Studies at Brandeis Uni-
versith in Waltham, Mass.
Committee for the Moscow Con-
ference, which is scheduled to
meet Dec. 19 to 21, has been
formed to support the goals of
the conference, at which the
Moscow Jewish activists hope to
meet to discuss the future of
Jewish culture within the Soviet
In their call to Jewish scholars
to come to Moscow to partici-
pate, the activists affirmed the
rights of Soviet Jewry to cultural
freedom and cited the tenets of
the Helsinki agreement. Elie
Wiesel is chairman of the
American committee.
Jick told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency that the
American Jewish scholars
Marvin Herzog of Columbia Uni-
versity, Baruch Levine of New
York University, Jacob Neusner
of Brown University, and
Marshall Sklare of Brandeis Uni-
versity had applied for visas in
the hope that Soviet authorities
would permit the conference to
take place, allow the activists to
rent a hall for the conclave, and
issue the visas for the four Amer-
ican Jewish scholars "in the
spirit of the Helsinki agreement."
"JICK SAID similar com-
mittees had been organized in
Israel and in Britain.
The manifesto declared that
"although the nearly three
million Jews in the USSR repre-
sent the world's third largest
Jewish community after those
of the United States and Israel
Soviet Jews are deprived of any
sharing in their cultural heritage,
customs and traditions."
The Moscow manifesto con-
tinued: "The task of preserving
and reviving Soviet Jewry, the

Poet and Composer, Berk, Adds
Spirit to Campaign Meetings
Jesse B. Berk is irrepressible. Formally retired, he finds in-
activity repulsive. So does his wife, an artist.
Jesse writes songs, lyrics and music. He's been known to write
a Christmas carol or two, but his favorite musical expression is a
celebration of Israel and Jewishness.
The snowy-white-haired, keen-eyed Jesse is especially welcome
at campaign planning meetings not only for his incisive questions
and--suggestions but, when the meeting's over, for his informal
singing and recitation of poetry.
There was a time, he says, when he played the fiddle. Today, he
plays a far greater role, as a leader of the Tamarac UJA, as a UJA
contributor and as a man who simply spreads good cheer.

that a vacation in this vaca-

winter destinations. And it
compares quite favorably
with cruises.
Sure, the plane fare is

up for it. A superior hotel in
South Africa will cost you
less than S20 a night with a

in South Africa compares
with the tariff on some far
more mundane vacations.
The price may be comparable but
the country itself is incomparable.

PARIS A UNESCO resolution formally condemning Israel for
archaeological excavations in Jerusalem and demanding that they be
immediately ended received less than the hoped-for number of votes
from the UNESCO conference meeting in Nairobi.
With a number of African countries balking at the resolution, the
vote Friday was 61-19, with 16 abstentions.
Several members of the African group reportedly withheld their
votes deliberately in the conference session, after voting for the
resolution in a commission session, to soften the force of the con-
demnation and maintain the conference's conciliatory tone. The vote
Friday was considerably less anti-Israel than the earlier one which was
70-25, with 14 abstentions.
GENEVA Premier Yitzhak Rabin of Israel defined his
country's policy toward Lebanon here as one of non-intervention in its
domestic affairs while safeguarding Israel's security.
He called for an early resumption of the Geneva conference for
Middle East peace and proposed that it be modeled on the European
Security Conference at Helsinki in the summer of 1975.
Rabin was attending the 13th conference of the Socialist Inter-
NEW YORK Leon Dulrin, treasurer of the Jewish Agency,
said here that the 29th World Zionist Congress should be postponed
until January, 1978, in order to avoid conflicting with the election
campaign in Israel.
He disagreed with Yosef Almogi, chairman of the Jewish Agency
and World Zionist Organization Executives, who said in Jerusalem
earlier last week that the Congress should be held next summer,
possibly in June. Dulzin, who is president of the World Union of
General Zionists, arrived here on a week-long speaking tour on behalf
of the United Jewish Appeal.
NEW YORK The Union of American Hebrew Congregations,
national congregational body of Reform Judaism in the U.S. and
Canada, has acquired the country's only Jewish music publishing
house, Transcontinental Music Publishing Co., and will henceforth
operate the company as part of the UAHC's publishing division.

I have come to realize that a deductible.
Israelis and American Jews

Union to the United States
with Israeli visas do great
disservice to the central

Yet with all the severity of this
judgment, I hope that American
compassion from Soviet Jews

The deepest issues of Jewish
fraternity are here at issue. Since
our Jewish relationship is
fraternal, it imposes an un-
conditional solidarity.
ZIONISM has an absolute
obligation to the interests of
every Jew. in rectitude or in
error, for better or for worse. The
obligation is transcendent and
all-embracing. It springs to our
conscience from the depths of our
tragic history. And it is sustained

Soviet Jewish pot black or any
other color. Whatever the
motives for the American Jewish
record on Aliya, it must surely
generate a decent humility
toward Soviet Jews who, in their
fatigue and confusion, are unable
to fulfill the dictates of our
national history.
When Zionism celebrated its
decisive political victory after
World War I, its leaders took a
double and parallel course. (Dr.
Chaim) Weizmann and his
colleagues appeared before the
Peace Conference in 1919 with
their call for recognition of
Jewish national independence.
And Nahum Sokolow, repre-
senting Zionism in its full
sovereignty, joined Louis
Marshall and Julian Mack in
their efforts to protect the civil
and collective Jewish rights of
Jewish communities in Europe.
THE MOST Satanic and
heinous anti-Zionist propaganda
after the Second World War
sought to saddle Zionism with
the sin of indifference to the
saving of Jewish lives other than
those destined for Eretz Israel.
We dare not accord retroactive
validity to this libel by giving our
Jewish solidarity a parochial or
selective interpretation. When we
rightly assert that a Jewish
State, had it existed in the 1940s,
would have saved the lives of
millions of Jews, the diagnosis
certainly includes not only those
who would have "come home" in
the fullest sense, but also those
who would have used a sovereign
Jewish passport for their varied
forms of personal deliverance.
I hope that Israeli leaders who
wish to obey an integral Zionism,
free of any Canaanitish emphasis,
should think again, and liberate
American Jewish leaders from a
pressure that goes against every
fraternal and humane impulse.
IN ANY case this is a theme on

"... We should undertake a

cost-benefit analysis of existing
international institutions in the
United Nations and outside, with
a view to determining the ap-
propriate level of United States

effort at reforming and restruc-
turing the UN systems."
EACH OF these pre-election
Carter policy commitments flies
in the face of the Bismarckian-
H itlerian- K issingerian principles
by which he has helped advance
this nation toward Executive
secrecy to the exclusion of the
legislative process, toward
divisiveness, toward intrusion on
personal privacy, international
intrigue in the form of subversion
of foreign governments, and, in
the Middle East, toward the
proposition that Israel's future
can only rest on amputation of
her geographical, and hence geo-
political, security.
Let the pipsqueak puppets
Ribicoff and Javits speak for
themselves when they ask for
Kissinger to stay on. The Amer-
ican people have already spoken.
They have sent Nixon-Ford-Kis-
singer home.
IN THE recesses of my
memory, I keep recalling the
Robert Kennedy joke, and these
days I no longer think it is really
a joke anymore. Somehow, Sen.
Kennedy must have foreseen it
all. It would be nice if Ribicoff
and Javits could go home, too.
There is no need for Kissinger
to remain behind. It would be a
betrayal of the American people
if he were asked to. It would be a
betrayal of Carter's pledges to
the American people if Carter did
the asking.
To paraphrase Jody Powell, "it
is not convenient" for Kissinger
to remain behind as an adviser to
the administration, or anything
else, and it will not be "useful for
all concerned."

The Meaning of Retirement
(A note from a JCC Senior Club member.)
For people after sixty-five, retirement is a time for learning
"something about our wonderful world. It is to look forward ... to
a time when one can hope to be compensated with more freedom
and leisure, to be able to indulge a little in the good things of life
which one could not indulge in during the struggling years of toil
and sweat. The golden years are here when men can seek ... to
see something of this wonderful world in which our mother earth,
with the help of man's ingenuity, produces such magnificent
Also one should never ignore the advantages of the golden age
clubs, the senior citizen clubs, and clubs of a similar nature. The
idea of these clubs is one of the high humane virtues life can offer
to retired people. They give people somewhere to go to find new
interest in life at a time when the outlook on life has diminished a
bit somewhere to go to express their thoughts and feelings
through their own particular talents, like singing, dancing,
reading, playing a musical instrument, or doing some craft to
make them feel they are still useful in life.
The example of clubs like these leads me to believe that we are
marching toward a greater salvation of our social problems .
The Bible says about old age: "Even in old age they shall bring
forth fruit. They shall be full of vigor and strength." Therefore we
thank God for giving us life, strength and opportunity.
Grateful we are to those who conceived the golden age club
idea. We hope men in all walks of life feel the same way as this
writing expresses.___________________- JACOB KALMUS

CALLAGHAN said he hoped
that whoever was the Secretary
of State after the U.S. Presi-
dential election would have the
"same depth of understanding as
Dr. Henry Kissinger."
The dinner, attended largely
by local Labor Party officials,
was a demonstration not only of
Socialist links but of the sym-
pathy of the Welsh people for
Israel. Most of the speakers
stressed the affinities between
the two nations.
Callaghan who also showed
that his personal interest in
Israel vies with that of his
predecessor, Sir Harold Wilson,
the former British Prime
Minister, said: "Never did Israel
have a more steadfast friend. He
strove to unite the interests of
Britain with forwarding Israel's
interests and security."
IT WAS with Callaghan's
strong backing, he said, that
Wilson would be addressing next
month's Balfour Dinner in Israel.
Meanwhile, Britain's ties with
some Arab countries had im-
proved, enabling Britain to
discuss questions more openly
and frankly with them. But this
was not at Israel's expense,
Callaghan added.

In reply to Rafael, who ex-
pressed Israeli concern at
Britain's economic crisis, the
Prime Minister said that whereas
Israel faced a visible foe, Britain
had the more complex task of
fighting an intangible economic
challenge. The country had no
alternative but to carry on the
present struggle against in-
flation, he declared.
CALLAGHAN'S appearance
here was a coup for the Labor

and, indirectly, for the Israel

"... had the Maccabean revolt been crushed, instead of having emerged vie-
i;i torious, the whole course of human history would have been altered And so the
:j Maccabean revolt became a turning point in history and is recognized as such even in
: the religious calendar of the Roman Catholics.

ctwiukah festival: dual Struggle for fReefcofn
The eight-day festival of Cha-
nukah which we are now
celebrating symbolizes, in a way,
the dual struggle of the Jewish
people throughout much of its
history for political as well as
religious freedom.
The struggle of the Maccabees,
led by Mattathias the Has-
monean, and his son Judah,
against the Syrian ruler of the
Jews, Antiochus Epiphanes, at
first had as its object only the
restoration of freedom of
religious worship and the preser-
vation of Jewish laws and
customs. King Antiochus, in his
continuous attempts to Hellenize
his subject peoples, was led to
suspend Jewish practices, to
convert the Temple in Jerusalem
into a Greek sanctuary, and to
erect heathen altars in the
country's towns. The revolt of
the people succeeded in restoring
religious freedom and spiritual
autonomy to Judea, and the re-
dedication of the Temple in 165
B.C.E. marked the end of this
stage of the conflict.
THEREAFTER the conflict
with the non-Jewish rulers
became political. Mattathias'
sons gradually gained both
religious supremacy, as high
priests, and political supremacy,
as kings in Judea, and estab-
lished the Hamonean dynasty,
whose political independence was
recognized by the Roman Senate
in 139 B.C.E.
The Hasmonean dynasty ruled
Judea for more than a century. It
was not a happy period in Jewish
history. After religious and po-
litical independence had been
achieved, there came bitter in-
ternal struggles which shook
Judaism and the Jewish state to
their foundations. "The new
state," according to the Uni-
versal Jewish Encyclopedia,
"entered into diplomatic
relations with other states, made
alliances, created a standing
army, conducted wars; in short,
it tended to become just another
one of the many Hellenized states
in the Orient."
This secular attitude of the
Hasmonean rulers came into
conflict with some fundamental
ideas of Judaism. A religious
struggle, this time an internal
one, flared up again.
TWO JEWISH parties were
formed, the Pharisees, who were
the zealous guardians of tra-
dition, of the unwritten law, of
theocracy, and who had the
masses of the people on their
side, and the Sadducees, whose
adherents were drawn from the
priestly aristocracy and the
wealthy and influential laity. The
Hasmonean rulers tended, for the
most part, to the Sadducean
The Hasmonean dynasty came
to an end in 37 B.C.E., when the
Idumean half-Jew Herod,
ascended the Judean throne and
--slaughtered the remaining mem-
bers of the Hasmonean dynasty.
troublesome and rather unhappy
aftermath of the Maccabean
revolt, an aftermath of royal
intrigues and throne usurpations,
of bitter religious conflicts and
even of civil war, does not detract
from the great importance of the
revolt itself, which the Chanukah
story symbolizes.
The restoration of religious
freedom to Judea through the
defeat of the tyrannical Greek
king was a great event not only in
Jewish, but in human, history.
Had Antiochus won, Judaism
would have been annihilated.
And, had Judaism been an-
nihilated, no Christianity, which
was born out of Judaism, could
have arisen a couple of centuries
Thus, had the Maccabean
revolt been crushed, instead of
having emerged victorious, the
whole course of human history
would have been altered. And so
the Maccabean revolt became a
turning point in history and is
recognized as such even in the
religious calendar of the Roman
NO MATTER how bitter may
have been the religious struggles
between the Pharisees and Sad-
ducees following the Maccabean
revolt, the Jews were again free
to practice their religion and to
develop it in accordance with
changed conditions. It gave the

Pharisees, who became the domi-
nant force in Judaism, through
they had to fight for ascendancy,
a chance to preserve and even
strengthen the Jewish religion
through a developing Oral Law
constantly interpreting and re-
interpreting the Written Law of
the Hebrew Bible. It saved the
Talmud for future ages.
The political independence
which the Maccabean revolt
ultimately won for ancient Judea
may not at first seem as im-
portant as the religious freedom
it achieved, in view of the fact
that a couple of centuries later
the Jews lost not only their
political independence but were
even uprooted from their home-
land by the Romans.
ONE MIGHT argue that,
while the Jews were able to main-
tain their religious autonomy in
exile despite all persecutions,
they could not maintain any
shred of political autonomy after
they were forced to leave Pales-
tine. While no one can deny that
there is a great deal of truth in
this argument, it must not at the
same time be forgotten that
religion and secularism are so
intertwined in Judaism that
Judaism is so much a "religious
civilization," a religious way of
life, that by preserving their
religious autonomy the Jews
were able to force medieval
Christian rulers to grant them
some sort of internal self-govern-
ment, because the medieval
Christian rulers had to recognize
that Jews were not merely
another religious sect, but a dis-
tinct nation.
That sense of nationality,
coupled with the sense of
religious uniqueness, was forged
mainly in the century of Jewish
political independence which fol-
lowed the Maccabean revolt.
The Jewish struggle for
religious and political freedom
continues in our own day. There
is a Communist Russia, where
two and a half million Jews are
denied elementary religious
freedoms: where so many syna-
gogues have been closed, and no
permission has been given for the
erection of new ones, that in
many cities and considerable
Jewish populations Jews have no
place to go to worship their God
in their own way; where the home
manufacture or importation of
Jewish religious articles or foods
such as matzohs are forbidden by
the Government; and where the
teaching of the Hebrew language,
the language of the Jewish
religion, is taboo.
religious freedom, the cultural
freedom of a secular nationality is
also denied to Jews in Soviet
Russia. No recognition is given
by the Communists to the Yid-
dish language, the language
which a half-million Soviet Jews
still speak, even by the Com-
munists' own statistics. No Yid-
dish books are published, no
newspapers, only one Yiddish bi-
monthly magazine with a cir-
culation of 25,000, hardly any
schools where the Yiddish
language is taught.
We in the democratic world,
who live outside the Communist
Iron Curtain, have protested
against this denial of freedom to
Soviet Jewry, and will continue
to protest as long as the Russian
Government will continue this
policy of repression. We shall
continue to hope that our pro-
tests will eventually bear fruit.
In the independent State of
Israel, today, there is no struggle
for religious freedom against
some external power which would
suppress that freedom, though
there are internal religious con-
flicts which flare up from time to
time, conflicts in which the non-
Orthodox accuse the Orthodox of
exercising too much hegemony
over Israeli life and of limiting
the religious freedom of the non-
Orthodox. These conflicts, un-
derstandable in the light of
Jewish historic evolution, do not
however endanger the existence
of the Jewish State.
BUT AS far as its political
independence is concerned, Israel
today, almost thirty years after it
came into being, must still main-
tain a crushing burden of arma-
ments to defend itself against
hostile Arab neighboring states
that still proclaim their intention
of destroying it.
It is still technically at war
with these Arab states, though
an armistice is being enforced
and its borders at present are
quiet. But Israel never can tell
when war may flare up again and
it may have to fight for its very

THE WORD "Chanukah," which means dedi-
cation, does not in itself convey the full signifi-
cance of our eight-day winter holiday. Even if we
recall its other name the Feast of Lights we
still miss the hard kernel of the holiday's
Actually, Chanukah is a great festival of
freedom, commemorating the first time in Jewish
history that freedom was attained through
courage in battle and a determination to fight for
the things we hold sacred.
ALL OF us should bear in mind as we
celebrate, from the 24th of Kislev (this year Dec.
16) to 3rd of Teveth for the 2,127th consecutive
year, the victory of the Maccabees over the
Hellenized Syrian oppressors. For in so doing, we
will be reaffirming our belief in the principle that
freedom is an ideal for which Jews have always
been willing to fight and die.
Then, besides celebrating the Jewish temple's
rededication to the worship of God, after
deliberate Syrian defilement, we will also be
marking the anniversary of a masterful Jewish
military operation which ultimately converted
.Judea from the tiny district into which it had
shrunk to the historical boundaries established by
King David and known ever since as Eretz
Every Jewish boy or girl learns how the Mac-
cabean struggle began. They hear the familiar
story of how an enranged Mattathias, the aging
patriarch of the Hasmonean family, killed a
Jewish traitor for kneeling before a Greek idol,
and how he then turned on the Syrian soldier who
ordered the blasphemy and slew him as well.
WE UNDERSTAND that this was the spark
that ignited Israel's first war of liberation, which
ultimately brought complete victory for the

Maccabees. But how many of us are aware of the
fact that the fighting did not actually begin with
Mattathias' impulsive deed? How many of us
know that many of the Jews those known then
as the "Hassidim" were already in armed
conflict with the mercenaries of the Syrian
Emperor Antiochus IV because of his unbearable
despotic rule?
Actually, the first Jewish rumblings against
Syrian domination during the turbulent second
century (B.C.E.) began several years before the
Maccabees organized their dogged guerrilla army.
The Hassidim confronted Antiochus' troops with
armed opposition and were constantly seeking
open battle with them. However, there was one
exception: the Sabbath.
The Hassidim refused to take up arms on the
Holy Day, many of them preferring to be cut
down like grain rather than break the Lord's
commandment. This was their Achilles' heel, and
the Syrians were quick to take advantage of it.
THE MACCABEES did not see it that way,
however, they insisted that it was permissible for
Jews to fight in self-defense on the Sabbath if
they faced the alternative of being slaughtered
like lambs.
They also provided the Hassidim with a leader
the likes of whom has been rare and invaluable in
Jewish history: Juday, Mattathias' second son,
who was second to none as a commander,
strategist and fighter. He led the poorly trained
and ill-equipped Jewish forces to rout the Syrian
enemy, never fearing that Antiochus' forces pos-
sessed the ultimate in tactical weapons and were
bolstered by the most awesome armor in the day:
THUS, it is remarkable, that at the Battle of
Emmaus, the turning point of the war, which was
fought near the site of Israel's Bab el Wad "
(where the fate of modern Jerusalem was decided
in 1948) Judah and his men dared to oppose
thousands of picked Syrian infantrymen and
cavalry (37,000 in all, according to the apocryphal
Book of Maccabees).
Judah, of course, had a clever ruse in mind
when he prepared to fight the numerically
superior enemy. Learning that the Syrians
planned to raid his encampment under cover of
darkness, Judah ordered his men to vacate it at
once and seek concealment in the nearby hills.
Lysias, the Syrian commander a close relative
of the Emperor finding the Jewish encamp-
ment abandoned, assumed that the Jews were
afraid to fight and ordered his troops to locate
them in the surrounding area.
THE SEARCH was fruitless, but it did serve
to tire the Syrian soldiers. Meanwhile, Judah
waited until daylight and then advanced to meet
Lysias in battle on a nearby plain. Finally, in
spite of the impossible odds, the Jews were
The "propaganda" effect of this battle was
almost as great as its military value. Antiochus

formidable enemy, invincible even when con-
fronted with the cream of his battalions.
These conclusions were confirmed, for, by the
time Judah and his men were dedicating the
temple in Jerusalem, they had defeated another
Syrian army, this one even larger than the one
commanded by Lysias.
ALTHOUGH the Maccabees eventually
succeeded in establishing a full-fledged in-
dependent Jewish commonwealth, there was a
new invader waiting in the wings: the Romans.
Within just over 200 years, they not only
destroyed the last vestiges of Jewish sovereignty,
but reduced to rubble the very temple for which
the Maccabees had risked so much to restore.
Nevertheless, the Romans could not accomplish
their mission until their legions had crushed the
same kindof indefatigable Jewish armed
resistance as had opposed Antiochus IV.
The willingness of Jews to fight for freedom did
not cea*e in the year 70 C.E. It is true that, for
many centuries, there were few causes which had
room for Jewish partisans. But Jews were ready
when the first great opportunity came: the Amer-
ican Revolutionary War. in which hundreds of
Jews rallied to the standard of Gen. George
PROPORTIONATELY, the number of Jewish
soldiers serving in the Continental Army was
very high. Although the total Jewish population
in the 13 colonies was small (only 2.000 to 3.0001
they provided more than the average percentage
of men who bore arms, and many of them were
among the best American soldiers.
Their names are preserved in the records of the
American Revolution. They range in rank from
field grade officers to buck privates all volun-
teers, of course. (There was no draft until many
wars later.)
One of the most interesting of them was Col.
David Salisbury Franke, who became an aide to
Generals Benjamin Lincoln and Benedict Arnold.
He averted the possibility of an American
Dreyfus Case by insisting that a full inquiry be
conducted by a military tribunal to prove that he
was in no way involved in the treasonous activ-
ities of his dishonored commander.
ANOTHER distinguished Jewish officer was
Maj. Benjamin Nones, who came to the Colonies
from France and eventually served on the staffs
of Gen. Washington and the Marquis de
Lafayette. Nones won his commission after
performing meritorious service as a private under
the command of Count Pulaski, in whose units he
served as a private. It was Nones who carried
Baron de Kalb from the battlefield at Camden,
N.J.. when the Baravian-born French officer was
mortally wounded. Nones received a lengthy
letter from Count Pulaski citing his consistent
bravery under fire.
Two of the Jewish soldiers who -were killed in
action were Salvador Ettings, of Maryland, and
Capt. Lewis Bush, of the Sixth Pennsylvania
Battalion, who was fatally wounded at the Battle
of Brandywine.

The Pinto family of Connecticut sent three of
its sons to the Conntinental Army, while the
newly declared state of South Carolina mustered
a distinct "Jews' Company," so called because 15
of its 60 members were Jews. It was commanded
by Capt. Richard Lushington.
Another prominent member of the Franks
family (the Franks were the nation's leading
Jewish family at the time of the Revolution) was
Col. Isaac Franks. He enlisted at the age of 17
and gained his colonelcy after being wounded in
battle several times. By the time the war was
over. Col. Franks had become a close personal
friend of George Washington, on whose staff he
served and with whom he kept in touch for many
years after both returned to civilian life.
BUT THE most touching incident of all those
concerning Jews in the Revolutionary War is one
connected with Chanukah. It happened at Valley
Forge, during the time of the greatest peril for the
revolutionary cause.
It was the first night of Chanukah. A Jewish
soldier wanted to light the first candle, but he
feared it would attract too much attention. He
waited until his comrades in arms were all fast
Then, when he was alone with the darkness,
cold and hungry, he inserted the flickering candle
into the Menorah he had brought with him from
his father's house in Poland. Just then, he felt
someone's hand rest gently on his shoulder.
When he looked up he saw that it was Gen.

Washington himself. Apparently he had noticed
the flickering light inside the tiny hut, and
decided to see what it was.
"What is that?" Gen. Washington asked.
THE SOLDIER explained that it was a
Menorah, and that Jews all over the world were
kindling the first of eight candles in celebration of
the Maccabees' victory over the Syrians.
Gen. Washington stared at the tiny flame and
said, "You are a Jew, a descendant of the
"Yes sir," the soldier agreed, "and you will lead
the American army to victory in this fight, just as
Judah Maccabee led us to victory in those days.
Then all of us will build a new land and new lives
in this country."
Gen. Washington did not say any more. He
simply shook the soldier's hand and left. Time
passed, and the war took its course just as the
young Jewish soldier said it would. The next year,
in 1778, the young Jew was sitting in his house on
Broome St., in New York. It was first night of
Chanukah, and a candle was flickering in the
THEN HE heard a knock on the door. It was
Gen. Washington, who promptly entered and

hand on the ex-serviceman's shoulder, and said:
"This candle kindled a light in my heart that
night. Now you are going to receive a medal as
one of the heroes of Valley Forge. Tonight, I want
you to accept this gold medallion."
The ex-serviceman could barely utter a word

gone. When he examined the coin, he found that it
bore a skillful inscription of a menorah and the

existence of archives devoted to
Jerusalem during the last 100
years is probably one of our city's
best kept secrets. Housed in a
basement, on a quiet tree-lined
street in the Talpiot quarter,
documents that are stacked on
600 yards of shelves, tell the
colorful story of Jerusalem as it is
today. Life in the city under the
Turks, the sprouting of Jewish
neighborhoods outside the Old
City walls, thirty years of British
rule, minutes from meetings of
the City Council under Jordan
when the city was divided from
1948 to 1967 all this and much
more you find among the 25.000
photos, 18,000 negatives, 1,000
posters, maps and etchings and
in the library of 2,300 books.

often like stumbling on hidden
treasures. Who would have

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Friday, December, 10,1976
WHEN JIMMY Carter and
119 of his fellow-congregants of
the Plains Baptist Church voted
recently to open services to all
regardless of race, the victory
they recorded for religious free-
dom could readily be accepted as
a welcome prelude to the
Chanukah season.
To be sure, there was no cruse
of oil to last eight days, or even
one day, in the Baptist sanc-
tuary. And no need for one. Yet
this vote on the side of righteous-
ness offers reassurance to all who
abhor religious and racial
ALONG THE way. the in-
cident had about it the odor of
political chicanery. And those
who dipped their hands in that
pool of dirty tricks went down to
defeat also.
Now President-Elect Carter is
not yet a Maccabee, but his
behavior in the Plains political-
religious episode was in the good
tradition of those who have long
fought for the right to worship as
the heart dictates.
When Mattathias 21 centuries
ago led the historic Jewish battle
against Antiochus Epimanes, he
was fighting on his own turf.
Jimmy Carter, in 1976, knew his
terrain by heart also.
And when, at the close of the
incident, he said it was a victory
for "God's church," he proved

CaRtea's VictoRy in his ChuRch
A pRelu&e to Chanukah
those who answer a higher call as
did Judah when he rallied the
Maccabees with the cry: "Who-
ever is for the Lord, follow me."
THERE WERE, of course, a
few dark shadows over the Plains
Baptist Church affair. First,
Carter's political opponents were
hopelessly misguided when they
clucked with glee over the Carter
camp's embarrassment flowing
from the appearance at the Plains
church door by the black minister
- politician, Rev. Clennon King of
Albany, Ga., the Sunday before
Election Day.
The reported dispatch of
telegrams by the Ford Com-
mittee to black ministers in many
parts of the country fortunately
backfired. The politico who
signed the malicious telegrams
apparently intended to prove to
the nation that Carter could not
very well influence Congress if he
couldn't influence the outcome of
the church squabble.
Carter proved his adversary
dead wrong.
Again, certain efforts to
portray the Democratic can-
didate as a bigot or at least one
who gave only lip service to civil
rights proved disastrous for Ford
original exclusion of the Albany
visitor and three of his associates
from the church, one Peter
Teeley, deputy press secretary
for the President Ford Com-
mittee, asserted: "If nothing
else, it shows up some of the
inconsistencies in Mr. Carter's
beliefs on civil rights and
And Sen. Robert P. Griffin of
Michigan foolishly declared to re-
porters: "This shows the con-
trast between Mr. Carter's public
posturing and his actual way of
Finally, one confused critic of
Carter's conduct in the sticky
matter proclaimed Carter was all
wrong on trying to reform his
church by retaining his member-
ship and fighting from within.
(Way back in 1965, the
President-Elect and members of
his family comprised most of the
pitiful minority trying to open
the church to blacks.) So here
was another Monday morning
quarterback proven wrong.
JIMMY CARTER stayed in
and won a thumping victory.
Other Americans who cherish
religious freedom and respect
racial and ethnic diversity shared
in the Carter triumph.
And those with hope in their
hearts and a pulse in their souls
are entitled to swear now that
they saw candles lighted for eight
days in Plains where certain fine
citizens may not have heard of
the Maccabees and Chanukah.
yet have participated in one more
battle won for God who watches
over all.

his appointment to the Supreme
Court, the entire country
rejoiced. On his death he was
mourned throughout the land.
Chief Justice of the U.S. Su-

and power." Justice Oliver Wen-

facturer. The buyer of a car was
suing an automobile company for
injuries incurred due to a
defective wheel on the car.
The manufacturer argued that
since it had not sold him the car
directly it was not responsible for
the accident. The manufacturer
also claimed there was no proof of
knowledge of the defect, even
though the car collapsed while it
was being driven at eight miles
an hour.
THE LOWER court upholding
the manufacturer, the case was
brought to the Court of Appeals
where Justice Cardoso over-
turned the ruling. He wrote, in
part, that the automobile was
designed to go 60 miles an hour,
and unless its wheels were sound
and strong, injury was almost
certain. He also said that since
the manufacturer obviously knew
that when it supplied its cars to
dealers they would ultimately be

Former Defense] Minister
Moshe Dayan stated in a
television interview that
the Israeli government
should talk to Yasir Arafat,
head of the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization, and
help the Palestinians
achieve a national home-
land within Jordan.
Dayan, now a member of
the Knesset, said, "It is
necessary to speak with the
enemy even if we have no
compromise proposal.
Otherwise, it will be impos-
sible to reach a settle-
ISRAEL officially refuses to
a meet with the PLO because it is a
terrorist organization. But some
doves with the Labor Alignment
have said that Israel should be
prepared to meet with PLO
leaders if that organization an-
nounces its official recognition of
the Jewish State.
Meanwhile, the Knesset is
expected to take up the question
of the propriety of a recent
meeting with PLO repre-
sentatives in Paris by several
prominent Israelis, including a
former MK and a former official
of sub-Cabinet rank.
The question waa raised by
Amnon Linn of Likud. The
government's reply will be given
by Justice Minister Chaim
The Paris meeting, in mid-
October, was unofficial and was
held in a private home. Its
outcome was inconclusive as
neither the Israelis nor the PLO
men could agree on a basis for
future negotiations. The PLO
participants were not identified,
at their own request.

REFERRING TO statements
i .bout Israel made by Arab
delegates during the course of the
debate. Herzog declared: "Some
of the statements ranged from
the most extreme expressions of
^tred to the utterly ludicrous.
Many of them ignored the
massive" blood-letting in the
internecine struggle of Arab
against Arab in so many centers
of conflict in the Mideast, most of
them far removed from Israel and
completely unrelated to the
Israel-Arab conflict."
Focusing on statements by the
Svrian Ambassador, Herzog
said' "The vehemence of his

Assembly must be in direct pro-
portion to the number of Arabs
being killed by the Syrian forces

Earlier, Egyptian Foreign
Minister Ismail Fahmy, in a
speech delievered for him by
Egyptian UN Ambassador Abdel

for resumption of the Geneva
conference insisting at the same
time that all concerned parties

This was one of the few
references by an Arab leader to
the PLO at this year's Assembly
debate. Last week's speech by
Syrian Ambassador Mowaffak
Allaf which omitted any reference
to the PLO was viewed by ob-
servers here as an indication of
the precipitate decline of the ter-
rorist group's prestige and in-
fluence in the Arab world as a
result of the fighting in Lebanon.
A SURPRISE move came
when Ambassador Edouard
Ghorra, a Lebanese Christian
who represents the Syrian-
supported government of
President Elias Sarkis, de-
nounced the role of the
Palestinians in the Lebanese civil
In a sharply worded speech,
Ghorra accused the Palestinians
and their supporters in the Arab
countries of being responsible for
the continuing bloodshed and
agony of Lebanon.
"The world has been baffled by
the intensity of the fighting, the
passions it has aroused, the large
number of casualties and the
extent of destruction" which
were the result of the
Palestinians' interference,
Ghorra said in what was
described here as the most
devastating attack on the PLO in
this year's Assembly by any
member of state, including Israel.
THE PLO was not permitted
to take the floor to answer
Ghorra's charges.
"It is deplorable that those
who have been victims of a gross
injustice are inflicting an in-
justice of such inhumane

poles Will Restoce Cemeteries
Polish government has com-
mitted itself for the first time to
the principle of the restoration
and preservation of an estimated
1,000 Jewish cemeteries in
Poland, most of which are in
very poor condition, a New York
rabbinical official reported.
Rabbi Hertz Frankel, sec-
retary of a Rabbinical Com-
mittee for Preservation of Jewish
Cemeteries, said the Polish
tent's commitment
from negotiations in
between a delegation of
four ffibbis and a layman with
Kazimierz Kakol, Polish Min-
ister of Religious Affairs,
HE TOLD the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
committee, representing all
major Orthodox rabbinical and
Hasidic organizations of the
United States and Canada, was
organized more than a year ago
to raise the issue with the Polish
After a year of negotiations,
he said, the committee was
invited to send the delegation to
Warsaw to discuss the problem.
Frankel said also that an
effort to work out details of the
implementation of the com-
mitment would be made at a
second meeting with Polish
officials by another committee
@E Ifappy
He said the composition of the
second delegation and arrange-
ments for the second round of
talks in Warsaw should be com-
pleted soon.
THE RABBI stated that the
U.S. government, through its
ambassador in Warsaw, was
helpful in reaching the initial
agreement. Help also was
received from William Perry of
New York, a survivor of the
Holocaust, who is now an official
of a local of the International
Longshoreman's Association,
with the full support of the
Association, Frankel said.
Perry was the layman in the
delegation. Frankel said only a
few Jewish cemeteries in Poland
were in acceptable condition. He
cited the Jewish cemetery in
Cracow and one of two in
Warsaw. He said the other
cemetery in Warsaw was badly
He noted that, since the
wartime destruction of Polish
Jewry by the Nazis, the majority
of Jewish cemeteries were
unused. Apart from neglect, he
said, some cemeteries had been
victims of urban renewal
Noting that under Jewish
religious law, all Jewish
cemeteries are considered sacred
places, Frankel observed that
this was particularly true of
cemeteries in Poland where
founders of Hassidic dynasties
and deans of major European
yeshivas are interred.

accused the Palestinians of
numerous crimes including
kidnapping and torture.
He said the Palestinians acted
as if they were a state within a
state in Lebanon "and flagrantly
defied the law of the land and the
hospitality of its people." The
Lebanese Ambassador also
charged that the PLO's ultimate
objective is the partition of
FAHMY, who preceded
Ghorra, termed the present Mid-
east situation a danger to peace
and warned that the world was
engaged in a race against time,
the outcome of which %ould be
either peace of an all-out "war of
liberation" to recover "the
national rights of the Palestinian
HE ADDED that many Polish
cemeteries had become the final
resting places of thousands of
Nazi victims buried in mass
graves. He reported that, as a
first step, the Polish government
has said a sign will be placed on
all Jewish cemeteries warning
that any person defacing or
disturbing the cemetery will face
severe punishment.
Fahmy stressed that a Middl
East peace settlement requii
Israel's withdrawal from
occupied Arab territories and I
restoration of the legitimate
rights of the Palestinian people,
including their right to an in-
dependent state.
He accused Israel of remaining
an aggressor in quest of ex-
pansion at the expense of its
Arab neighbors and the
Palestinians. He said that was
the only interpretation that could
be put on Israel's persistence in
establishing settlements in
occupied Arab territories and its
annexation and "Judaization" of
Jerusalem, all in violation of
General Assembly and Security
Council resolutions.
