The head of the Progressive Conservative government of

United Jewish Appeal that Canada's foreign policy must never
be allowed "to become so weak or so soft or so vague or so self-
seeking that it no longer has room for a stand of principle in the
Middle East."
DAVIS, who was being honored by the 850 UJA guests,
said his government would not tolerate any submission to the
Arab boycott against Israel or any Canadians who trade with
Israel to the extent that provincial human rights laws could
prevent this.

UJA's Russell Urges Budget Increase ForiJewish Agency
Nearly 100 leaders from the
state of Florida recently heard
United Jewish Appeal National
Chairman Robert Russell, of
Miami, call on American Jewish
communities to increase their
support for the people of Israel.
Russell spoke at the first UJA
Florida Regional Leadership
Conference at Tarpon Springs.
"The Jewish Agency in Jeru-
salem is being forced to cut its
budget for human needs by $80
million and the impact of this is
tragic," Russell said.
"These cutbacks may affect a
generation of Jews in our
lifetime. Think of the child who
may go uneducated, the im-
migrant family that may go
without housing, the wage-earner
who may go untrained for a new
life in Israel, the social gap that
may grow in a country that
should fulfill the heights of
Jewish idealism."
The conference, a major effort
to implement Forida-wide pro-
gramming for UJA Federation
campaigns which help finance the
Jewish Agency's programs as
well as community causes, was
chaired by UJA Regional
Campaign Cabinet Chairman
Charles Rutenberg of Clearwater.
Rutenberg urged the community
leaders to "broaden their
horizons to include state-wide
"Regionalization will give us
the opportunity to use our
leadership resources to the fullest
in the large and small com-
munities throughout Florida,
Puerto Rico and the Virgin
Islands," he said.
In another featured address at
the conference, Leonard Fein,
professor of Contemporary
Jewish Studies at Brandeis Uni-
versity, stressed the impact of
the shortfall of supporting funds
on education in Israel, where
plans to expand the free
educational system to the tenth
grade have been postponed.
"The threat to the people of
Israel is that the State will
survive, but the dream will die
because the costs were so great.

JCC: Providing a Place
For Senior Citizens
The Jewish Community Center, a new member of the United Way
family, has a lot to offer the hundreds of Jewish people in the com-
munity who are still "young at heart."
The center offers a wide variety of programs and activities for all
age groups, hut due to United Way funding, the Center can now offer
more activities for persons 60 and over. Activities include a luncheon
and card party twice a month.
"Many people of this age group often begin to feel isolated and
useless, especially if they've lost their spouse," said William Gold-
stein, executive director. "These people need a place to go where they
can be with others and get involved in various activities," Goldstein
Other activities geared specifically toward these citizens are
classes in Yiddish conversation, needlecraft, bridge, art and an ESP
Parapsychology course. For the more energetic older adults there are
courses in yoga, dance exercise, and slimnastics, to mention a few.
Larry Berkley, health and physical education director, believes
that senior citizens are only as old as they feel.
"I try to help these people get the most out of life by keeping
theni alert and alive inside," Berkley said. "A lot of people feel as
though they are too oid* for Such activities as yoga and slimnastics.
They really are surprised when they find ihei^?elves doing these
things," he added.
One of the main attractions at the center are seminars which are
held at various times throughout the year. A number of speakers are
invited from the community to discuss such topics as sex after sixty,
living and loving, nutrition and geriatrics.
"With all the programs now available for our senior citizens at the
Jewish Community Center, there hopefully will be a decrease in the
number of lonely people walking around with no one to turn to and no-
where to go," said Goldstein. ____________________________
We must insure that this does
not happen," he said.
"These are real needs which
only we can solve; the
humanitarian programs funded
by our campaigns are crucially
important to a generation of
Israelis growing up at this very
moment. We must do more
and we must do it now," said
Prof. Fein.
The conference featured
seminars for community cam-
paign chairmen, Federation
presidents, small community
leadership, executive directors,
and the UJA Women's Division.
Aaron David Rosenbaum,
director of Research for the
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee, reviewed political

Purim's Meaning
We celebrate Purim this week by reading the story of
Esther and Mordecai, which tells us how in their early
history, and through the brilliant strategy of Esther, the
Jewish people were saved from the tyrant Haman.
The story is ancient, but the challenge to Jewish sur-
vival is ever-present. In our own time, from Hitler through
Brezhnev, we have had our Hamans and managed tc
The role of Esther is no less cogent today. Esther's
strategy involved marrying the non-Jewish King
Ahasuerus and informing him of the terrible plans Haman
had for the destruction of her fellow Jews.
Reckoned in terms of modern experience, it is Esther's
intermarriage itself which illustrates our own dilemma
with the problem of mixed marriages and the loss of
Jewish parents and children to their faith.
Purim teaches us, even today, that Esther's strategy
must not be lost that even in intermarriage, the Jewish
woman must forget neither her faith nor her children's
spiritual survival as Jews. Otherwise, in the end, Haman
will have had a belated victory.
Hadassah's Birthday
In 1977, coincident with the celebration of Purim,
Hadassah marks its sixty-fifth birthday.
Hadassah, the Women's Zionist Organization of
America, draws its inspiration, motivation and ideals of
achievement from the notion of Zion, a concept as old as
the Jewish people themselves.
On the American scene, Hadassah, one of the largest
Jewish volunteer organizations in the world, is unwaver-
ing in its commitment to the preservation of freedom and
Hadassah has been active in the fight to protect the
rights of Soviet Jewry and has practiced an active Zionism
through its study groups, vital youth programs, and by
participating in Zionist-related conferences in the United
States and in Israel.
As for Israel herself, the impact of Hadassah on that
modern nation is felt in every corner of the land.
Hadassah's broad program of medicine, medical teaching
and research, vocational education, child rescue and
rehabilitation and land reclamation immediately affects
the lives and hopes of Israel's citizens.
The pioneering efforts of Hadassah are deeply inter-
woven in the history of the State of Israel. Hadassah's
philosophic convictions have motivated the dedicated
women of the organization since 1912, when it was
founded by Henrietta Szold.
On Hadassah's sixty-fifth birthday, the Jewish com-
munity salutes this distinguished women's organization.
Buckley Dead to Wrongs
Wiesenthal Tracks
Down Top Ia*i
VIENNA (JTA) Simon Wiesenthal, head of the
Jewish Documentation Center, announced Feb. 9 that he has
tracked down another Nazi war criminal.
Wiesenthal, who played a prominent role in locating Adolf
Eichmann, said he discovered a former German SS officer who
committed war crimes in occupied Yugoslavia during World
War II.
HE SAID that Clement Druschke, 62, who is now a tavern
keeper in Heidelberg, West Germany, was responsible for the
shotting of 45 hostages in 1942 when he was head of the
Gestapo police in Jesenice, Yugoslavia.
HE SENT several hundred Yugoslavs to German con-
centration camps where most of them were killed, Wiesenthal
said. Wiesenthal said he located a witness who passed the site
of the 1942 massacre almost immediately after the shootings.
The witness said he saw Druschke standing near the dead,
bodies with a pistol in his hand. Wiesenthal ssid German
authorities have started an investigation. '

FOR A second time in as many
months, I find myself having to
take William F. Buckley to task.
For me, this is an unhappy pros-
pect because, as I said in my Jan.
21 column, Buckley was long a
writer and thinker I admired.
Now, however, the evidence
seems to be mounting that he is
slipping his buttons. Take, for
example, his Feb. 19 piece in the
Miami Herald.
QUOTING John Kenneth Gal-
braith, Buckley opines that "you
cannot have a Marxist-Com-
munist state without going
through the antecedent stages
. (of) feudalism, capitalism
. (and). imperialism."
Adds Buckley: "A state that is
not industrialized cannot .
proceed through the necessary
metamorphoses," meaning that
"Marxism foresees the struggle
between the property-owners and
the workers, resulting in the
ascendancy of the workers, the
socialization of property and of
the means of production, dis-
tribution and exchange."
Well, now, Herr Prof. Buckley,
that sounds mighty good, and it
serves you well as a basis for your
delicious little irony, or so it
GIVEN your view, or is it your
view of Galbraith's view of the
traditionally delineated Marxist
class struggle,, then how is it,
you ask quite properly, that the
Soviet Union became the first of
the nations in modern society to
turn to Communism?
When in 1917 the Bolsheviks
gunned down Czar Nicholas II to
put an end to Romanov rule,
Russia was the most tech-
nologically (and therefore
capitalistically) retrograde
society in all of Europe.
When in 1949 Chiang Kai-
shek's Kuomintang fell to the
Red forces of Mao Tse-tung, as
you rightly surmise, "it was
peasants, not industrial workers
who made up the legions" under
Mao's successful revolutionary
Cuba under Castro, and now
Angola, of whose Marxist-
Leninist persuasion you quote
Lord Chalfont as having declared
that the Angolan decision to hop
the Communist Express was
"presumably in honor of those
two celebrated African tribal
"Under this definition," you
observe, "rigorously applied,
there is no Communist state
So far, so good. Your little
irony works wonders. The im-
plication surely is that Marx was
a bungler, and in most instances,
I'd be delighted to agree with

THE TROUBLE is with you,
not Marx. You have misread
Marx in the sense that you
confuse the Manifesto and Das
Kapital as if they were one and
the same thing and they are
The Manifesto, like your own
increasing practice of religious
jingoism, was meant to rouse
masses of men to rageful action
and paid little attention to ac-
curacy. In the Manifesto, Marx
and Engels may, therefore, sub-
stantiate some of your erroneous
deductions about his alleged view
of the need for capitalism as a
prerequisite to Communist
In the Manifesto, Marx and
Engels equate ancient Roman
patricians with the modern
bourgeois capitalist and ancient
slave societies with 19th century
Europe's downtrodden laborer -
proletarius, as the Romans called
RECKONED in these terms,
for the founding theoreticians of
Communism the millenial meta-
morphosis from patrician to con-
temporary multi-corporate

But that's phony. It is the kind
of economic metaphor for human
misery Marx and Engles
luxuriated in using. That doesn't
mean that you can permit
yourself the luxury of being
entrapped by the deception.
Furthermore, in Das Kapital,
Marx, there on his hown, is far
less the swashbuckler; he takes
far fewer liberties with history. In
Das Kaptial, the basic Marxist
prerequisite for Communist
revolution is precisely the op-
posite of the one he and Engels
flaunt in the doctrinaire, inflam-
matory Manifesto, and it is this

From state have-not to stai

The theory is that these would!

state technological viability an'
instant state capacity to com
as a state against other Ion
established capitalist states, a
of them rotted to the core by
personal profit drive and com
petition, and all of them destined
to succumb to the power o:
monolithic state capitalist ef-
ficiency, Communist-style.
THAT IS why, Herr Prof.
Buckley, there is no irony at all i:
the emergence of Communism
first in Russia, China, Cuba
Angola, et al., who clearly needed
it if they were to become instant
It is precisely according to
Marxist plan, and in Das Kapital
Marx in fact expresses great
doubt that Communism would
ever emerge as a force spon-
taneously in such highly-
industrialized societies as exist in
Great Britain and the United
States before it succeeded first in
the feudal pockets of worl
progress and then spread fro:
there to act upon the proletaria
discontent prevalent in th
existing citadels of capitalism.
But it is not, Herr Professor,1
your error in understanding
Marx that I object to. Nor would]
I even bother to question it
except for the fact that,
illustrating your meaningle
"irony," you comment that there
is no accounting for why a
country turns Communist {as I
say, if you understood Marx, youj
would never say this).
"I TEND to the conclusion,"
you write in that tone of sophis
ticated ennui that is your in
creasingly contemptuous trad
mark, "that being a Marxist
Leninist State is something lik
being a Jew: the accepted
definition of a Jew is somebod
who believes he is a Jew. Wh
will say him nay?"
This is as uncouth a statement
of bigotry as I have seen in a long
time. It reminds me of the anti-
Semitic lessons in "logic" for
which Lewis Carroll is so famous.
They cannot hide behind the
fraudulent veneer of his diseased
intellect, and neither can you any
longer hide behind yours.
It also reminds me of your per-
formance on Ch. 2 Public Tele-
vision last month with a spokes-
man for the Moonies' Unification
Church that I reported in my
Jan. 21 column, and in which
your major contribution to an
understanding of that outfit was
a statement about the collective
guilt of the Jews in tl.e crime of
deicide (the CradftdBn of Jesus)
which, you pontificated, exists to
this day.

The "accepted definition of a
Jew is somebody who believes he
is a Jew," you say. Accepted by
whom! I wonder, Herr Professor,
is being a Jew by conviction any
different from being, say, a
Catholic by conviction, as you
are, and if it isn't, if it is the same
thing, why didn't you equate
Marxist-Leninist with "the
accepted definition" of a
Do you place being a Jew, and
only a Jew, in the same category
as being a Marxist Leninist?
That is a coupling you may deny
having meant consciously. But it
is a popular coupling, neverthe-
less, among bigots who deal in'
such nauseous canards in

Trying to Fill the Religious Gap-
A Synagogue for Deaf-Mutes
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
William Cohn learned sign
language out of necessity.
Although he has perfectly normal
hearing and speech faculties,
both of his parents were deaf-
mutes. William learned quickly,
"when he was hungry or thirsty, to
use his hands to communicate.
He learned how to speak after
he learned sign language "in
Cohn, a retired delicatessen
owner from New York living in
Margate, spends most of his time
now helping to bridge the com-
munications gap between deaf-
mutes and the orally articulate
himself into a new job it seems,
translating in court litigation
involving deaf-mutes, working
with the Broward County Board
of Education and the Broward
County Association for the Deaf,
among others.
Putting his nearly fluent skills
to good use, he's presently affil-
iated with about a half-dozen deaf
organizations. "T'*n so damn
busy now," he said.
His latest labor of love is not
working with an organization for
the deaf but starting one: a deaf
"I'm determined that there will
be a shut," he states, adding that
he was "shocked" at the absence
of such a facility in both Dade
And Broward Counties.
The deaf synagogue concept is
not novel. Many Jewish com-
munities in the United States
have one, including New York
City and Chicago.

lives in Margate and is over 70
years old. For 44 years Cohen
taught school for the deaf in
Providence, R.I. He's just com-
pleted a cross-country trip to
California and back in a camper.
Although Cohen was brought up
in an orphanage and was never
Bar Mitzvah, he did belong to a
congregation for the deaf in
'Boston later on.
"The problem," said Cohen as
ranslated through Cohn, "is a
burning desire to observe Jewish
holidays, attend services during
the year and to partake in extra-
curricular activities. But we have
no place to go."
Many deaf-mutes do read lips,
but attending conventional
services poses problems because
of the distance between the pulpit
and the synagogue's seats.
"They can't strain their eyes
trying to read a speaker's lips,"
Cohn explained, besides they're
"entitled to a social life of their
"This group has to be an entity
by itself," Cohn continued. "I
can't see these men as part of a
men's club (in a regular syna-
gogue) they would just be
bumps on a log."
Cohn and Cohen, with ob-
viously compatible goals, have
set out to accomplish them.
The two men have assembled a
list of 35 or 40 deaf-mute couples
who are interested in the
/ Cohn says he "hopes to for-
mulate more definite plans" at
the meeting and possibly set
officer elections. The major ob-
stacle to the group's realization is
a place to meet.
The potential synagogue mem-
bers are not wealthy enough to
build and support a synagogue so
the group needs to depend on the
generosity of the Jewish com-
munity, according to Cohn.
Cohn is hopeful that a
Hollywood temple will lend them
the use of a room so they would
be accessible to both Dade and
Broward Counties.
Despite the inevitable prob-
lems, Cohn has visualized a
number of programs he'd like to
incorporate. These would include
a Bible class for children, a Men's
31ub, Sisterhood and a choir of
leaf-mute women using sign
language. The choir would be
"like a Hawaiian hula," Cohn
said, but they would "sing"
Cantorial music. Psalms and
modern songs.
Because of their mutual bonds,
"the deaf community is a very
close community, wherever they
live, they know each other and
fraternize," Cohn said.
"I just hope it will be suc-
cessful," summed up the feelings
of Abe Cohen, one who strongly
feels the lack.

Like a lot of smokers you may like the idea of a longer cigarette. You may also want low tar.
But longer cigarettes usually have more tar.
Well, Vantage just wouldn't go along with that.
So we worked. Until we could perfect a longer cigarette with the famous Vantage combination of

Columnist Angers 'Digest*
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
Recently, I received a copy of
Leo Mindlin's column of Jan. 14,
in which he delivers some less
than flattering comments about
The Reader's Digest.
He is, of course, entitled to his
opinions about The Digest or
mything else. But if he is going
jy attack The Digest, I think that
ve are entitled to have those
ittacks based on fact which is
ar from the case in his column.
HIS ANTl-Digest bias seems
io virulent that it would be
wintless to attempt to refut his
wticle point by point. Permit me,
wwever, to note that his labeling
>f Digest readers as "medioc-
it-ies who are either totally unin-
ormed or, what is worse,
iisinformed" is an insult, not
mly to the 42 million Americans
vho read the magazine each
nonth, but also to the 7,500
sraeli families who subscribe to
arious Digest editions, to your
12,000 fellow residents of Dade
bounty who are Digest sub-
cribers, and to the 787,300

I doubt that they would agree
vith his appellation of them as
mediocrities." Certainly, we do
lot hold them in such scorn,
^hey are respected and valuable
ustomers, whose affection for
nd loyalty to The Digest we hold
n great esteem.
As to the rest of his comments,
hope you will take the time to
ead the enclosed letter, sent last
November to Jack Geller by our
Iditor-in-Chief, Edward
'hompson, a letter to which,

AND WE are currently hoping
to use, in our June issue, a six-

his general condemnation of

A further point: Mindlin
mentions "the pages that the
Digest finally sold the anti-Israel

untrue. The Digest has not sold a

On Zavurov Resolution
ALBANY, N.Y. (JTA) The New York State Senate
unanimously passed a resolution calling for the release of
Amner Zavurov, the newest Soviet Jewish Prisoner of Con-
The resolution, sponsored by Sen. Albert Lewis, was
passed Feb. 9, two days prior to Zavurov's appeal of his three-
year sentence on a variety of charges.
DESPITE THE resolution and massive protests from
around the world, Soviet authorities rejected Zavurov's appeal
and upheld his three-year sentence.
The measure noted several violations of Soviet and inter-
national law, including denying the Zavurov family the right to
emigrate and denying the defendant the right to counsel of his
choice as guaranteed under the Soviet Code of Criminal

Richard Nixon left the White

take $3.5 million left over from
his 1972 reelection campaign. The
money was placed in trust and
some late campaign bills have
been paid from the funds. But
over the last couple of years,
Watergate lawyers have been
freely dipping into the cash and
now there's only $1,239,780.89
According to the law, the
money cannot be used to pay

Histadrut Urges
Assistance to Israel
Ze'ev Sher, Israel's Economic
Minister to the United States,
opened the three-day Histadrut
Economic Conference for Israel in
Miami Beach recently with a
call of help for Israel from the
investment community.
Sher, addressing some 1,500
persons attending the inaugural
assembly of the 11th annual
economic conference of the Israel
Histadrut Foundation at the
Fontainebleau Hotel, spoke of
Israel's continuing struggle for
economic survival.
"... IN THIS the 10th year
after the reunification of
Jerusalem, what kind of Jeru-
salem will we have? Will we have
a dependent or independent
Sher reported that Israel has
made major strides in decreasing
its foreign exchange debt this
year alone that debt has been
reduced by $500 million. Yet
domestically the situation is not
as improved, he noted.
The Israeli Pound has been de-
valued by 110 percent since 1974,
the cost of goods and services has
risen by more than 200 percent
and the inflation rate last year
was 38 percent.
THAT IS why the people of
Israel are really doing their
utmost to produce more and
export more, Sher said, adding
that industrial exports to the
United States have increased by
more than one-third.
On the other hand, he said, the
Arab boycott still continues to
affect investments in Israel
The impact of the boycott has
made it difficult for Israel to find
foreign markets outside of the
U.S. and Common Market
countries. "That is why all of you
must promote the sale of goods
made in Israel."
"Investments in our economy
have decreased considerably,"
Sher said, "particularly in in-
vestments for housing which are
down by 10 percent.

rRussian Jewish Children in Rome-i
Frolic at First Chanukah Party
ROME It was the first day of Chanukah
and the three large ORT classrooms at the
Rome kindergarten were crowded. The
children, 99 percent of them transmigrants
from the Soviet Union, were celebrating their
first Chanukah in the free world.
By 10 a.m. all the parents were there. They
were excited for two reasons: their children
were on the stage and they were anxious to see
them perform; and for most of them, this was
their first Chanukah celebration.
The children, from 3 to 12 years old, felt the
importance of being actors in front of such a
large audience and sharing with their parents
the festivity of Chanukah. about which they
first heard during their English classes at the
ORT school.
Mrs. R., a Jewish educator, was brought in
especially by the JDC, as part of the pro-
gram developed by the subcommittee on Jew-
ish education in which JDC. HI AS and ORT
are participating in a common effort. She is
American, highly skilled in Jewish education,
who lives and works in Israel. She arrived in
Rome on Dec. 1 and immediately started to
develop a program on Jewish education and to
prepare suitable material to be used by the
teachers for teaching English to transmigrants
at the ORT school.
The performance started with the little ones
dancing. Each child wore a paper candle band.
The music came from a record, one of many
educational materials provided by the JDC.
When the dancing was over, a beautiful
large Chanukah menorah was brought in. The
children made it themselves, of clay. They also
made a number of small ones. The 10-year-olds
lit the candles in turn, each one looking very
serious and involved.
Following the children's presentation, Mrs.
R. kindled the traditional first candle for the
first day and chanted the blessing.
The parents looked on intently.
When the party was over, they tried to reach
their children and congratulate them. They
wanted to leave but the children didn't want to
go. They had to light more candles, they
enjoyed it! And there were many Chanukah
menorahs. They asked their teachers if they
could take them home. Later, she said, when
Chanukah is over. They put them all on a
stand with the names of the children who made
Each Chanukah menorah has a card near it:
Sasha, Leonid. Igor How beautiful they
This was all so new for the parents, some of
them remembering having heard about
Chanukah from the elders in the family,
without really knowing what it was about.
And now their children were telling them, and
their enthusiasm was contagious. At home
they will talk about it some more. They no
longer have to be afraid.
The Joint Distribution Committee is a major
beneficiary of the national United Jewish
Appeal and of the UJA Campaign conducted
by the Jewish Federation here. ORT and
III AS also receive UJA funds, ORT through
an annual grant from the JDC.

that the principal stumbling

and the United States, he said,
remain steadfastly determined
not to deal with the FLO until
that organization accedes to
recognition of Israel's right to
exist. On the other hand, the

"IT SEEMS to me that the
Soviet Union did not want to
confront the issue of human

handling the manner underscores
the increasing reports of

Stone pointed out that the

Two Rabbis' Views of 'Roots'
Our New Jewish Roots
By Rabbi Sheldon J. Harr
Plantation Jewish Congregation
After having watched Roots on television, and
being challenged and exhilarated by Arthur
Haley's familial experience, I was, of course,
reminded of our Jewish Roots. Our own in-
dividual family histories may be equally as
difficult to trace, beyond a few generations, for
our immediate roots are often lost in the ex-
periences of Czarist Russia and Poland, or even
obliterated in the ovens of the concentration
camps. Yet, in a more general sense, our Jewish
Roots the identity from which we draw solace
and pride and direction are quite well-known to
all of us. The Torah is the earliest record of our
very own Jewish Family Tree.
There are other kinds of Roots as well. These
are of a more recent origin, and equally as im-
portant as our traditional Jewish Roots. These
are the ones which we establish here and now, in
Greater Broward County!
For so many of us, Broward County is a newly-
adopted home. It does not evoke the memories of
childhood, nor the close association of family. Yet
today it is our home. Thus, if we are to remain
well-adjusted and satisfied with our lot, we must
establish new roots here. This is certainly a great
challenge for the countless number of residents
who recently have established their homes here.
How, we might ask, does one begin to establish
Roots in a new and strange locale? I can think of
no better way to begin than to affiliate with a
Synagogue! Through a Synagogue we can attain
a sense of security we can hear and participate
in the familiar prayers and rituals, the annually
occurring holidays and festivals. Through a
Synagogue we can attain a sense of family not
necessarily a biological family unit, but none-
theless a sense of communal family life, sharing
our hopes and dreams with others of similar
interests and concerns.
Through a Synagogue we can fulfill our
potentialities there are educational programs
and self-help projects, youth groups and senior
citizen clubs, religious schools and social
gatherings. And through a Synagogue we can
even make new friends, never, perhaps, replacing
the old ones we have left behind, but nonetheless
filling in the void that all of us find as we make a
new life for ourselves.
Our Jewish .Roots discovered through our
tradition and heritage are easy enough to iden-
tify. Our newly planted Jewish Roots, however,
take more care and nurturing. By affiliating with
your local Synagogue you will be doing much in
helping your new roots grow and take hold,
making you and your family, as well as the entire
community, all the stronger for it.
Enigma of Jewish Roots
By Rabbi Phillip A. LabowRz
Temple Beth Israel
There may be those who would argue as to the
positive or negative impact of the recent
telecasting of Roots, but no one will deny its
enormous and far-reaching impact on the
television public.
The black struggle for freedom has again
aroused the sensitivities of moral America.
Although my personal response to Roots is
favorable for the most part, nevertheless, I find
some of its related side effects somewhat
disturbing. It seems that this epoch out of the
American past has brought into sharp focus the
enigma of the Jew his passionate pursuit for
the identity of others contrasted with his dis-
passionate attitude toward his own.
Our ancestral roots are often a well-kept family
secret, discussed in hushed tones, thus adding
fuel to the emotion-charged identity crisis of our
Jewish youth. The confused youngster shrugs his
shoulders and asks, "What are my roots?" Some
may be stunned or stymied by this painful and
penetrating question. While others will em-
phatically reply, "You are a son of Israel, in
whose veins flows the blood of a hundred
generations of heroes and martyrs. You are a
descendant of Moses and Isaiah, of Judah
Maccabee and Rabbi Akibah, of Maimonides and
the Baal Shem Tov, of the defenders of the
Warsaw ghetto, the brave builders of Israel and
the courageous commandos of Entebbe. You are a
kinsman of Louis Brandeis and Albert Einstein
and Jonas Salk, of Ben Gurion and Golda Meir."
Your people produced prophets and sages,
jurisprudence and law, and the wit and wisdom of
the Talmud. They produced philosophers and
poets in the Moslem world and pietists and
mystics in Medieval Europe.
Every period of Jewish history demonstrates
the spirit of our people to prevail despite great
obstacles. Amidst the degradation of slavery in
Egypt they burst upon the stage of history in an
act of liberation which proclaimed that freedom is
indestructible. In the Maccabean period we
observe a people fighting overwhelming odds for
the right to differ, to pursue its own destiny, to
preserve its own ideals and culture. Or shall we
choose an episode from yesterday where in the
hell-holes of the Holocaust they affirmed and re-
affirmed that even if they perished this would not
be the end. On the ashes of Hitlerian barbarism
they built a state which is a model of democracy
and social justice to the nations of the world.
Thus we perished but persevered trium-
phantly affirming that tyranny does not prevail
and brutality does not speak the final word.
These are the roots from which we descend.
This is the history of which we are a part. It is the
epic of a noble people transcending its troubles,
capable of pitying its persecutors, preserving its
power of love in the midst of hate and seeking to
serve God from wherever it might be. It is the
story of a people that not only survived but
stayed civilized, not only civilized but sane, not
only sane, but creative, not only creative but
Holy. For this, history has few parallels!

AJConff. to Resume

American Jewish Congress has
announced resumption of its
members' travel program to

Hertzberg led an AJCongress
mission to Mexico last month
and met with President Jose
Lopez Portillo, former President
Miguel Aleman, who heads the
Mexican National Tourist
Council, and leaders of Mexico's
Jewish community.
"ON THE basis of our con-
versations with Mexican govern-
ment officials and with repre-
sentatives of Mexican Jewry,"
Hertzberg said, "we believe it is
appropriate to resume our
members' travel program to
He noted that the AJCongress
was persuaded "that there is an
eagerness on the part of our
Mexican neighbors to strengthen
relations with the United States,
with Israel and with American
Jews and to adopt policies that
will strengthen the cause of
freedom everywhere. For all these
reasons, our mission recom-
mended unanimously to lift the
suspension of the American
Jewish Congress travel program
to Mexico. I am pleased to repor'
that this recommendation wa.
adopted unanimously by ou
national executive committee."
