Israel's 29th Year
With Full-Day Event
On the morning of May 15, over 800 children representing 10
North Broward Hebrew Schools marched around the one-mile drive of
Holiday Park in Fort Lauderdale to celebrate the area's second annual
Israeli Independence Day observance.
After the parade, emcee Harvey Kopelowitz, who served as chair-
man of the event, introduced Broward County Commissioner Jack
Moss, Rabbi Joel Goor of Temple Emanu-El and Glen Rinker, Channel
10's anchor man, who served as grand marshal ot the children's
Congressman J. Herbert Burke gave the keynote address. He
said that Israel must have "physical security"
before she can be asked to bargain with Palestini-
ans and Arabs and stressed that he would contin-
ue to fight for Israel's survival in Congress.
The final speaker was Jacob Brodzski, chair-
man of the Jewish Community Center.
The program concluded with a song presen-
tation by the Chosen Children, a group of teen-
agers who led a community singing session.
Over 40 booths filled with Israeli merchan-
dise were open for sale after the program. Falafel
and other Israeli swlacacies were served. Burke
The Fort Lauderdale observance of Israel's Independence Day
included an evening of entertainment by the Georgian dancers of
Israel at War Memorial Auditorium. Some 2,000 people watched them
perform Perchuli, Khoruni Mtioulouy, the Georgian Wedding Dance

U.S. Decision to Downgrade
Israel Brings Yes/No Chorus
A series of developments
with respect to American
military supplies to Israel
since the Carter Admin-
istration took office has
raised fears in Israeli circles
that the U.S. may withhold
weapons to coerce Israel
into accepting its settle-
ment plan for the Middle
The latest manifestation
of this approach was the
State Department's notifi-
cation May 6 that Israel
will not be included on the
top priority list of Amer-
ican arms recipients. That
list includes the NATO
countries and Japan.
ISRAELI circles say the
notification was unwarranted
because Israel never has received
equal or preferential treatment in
weapons systems deliveries,
except for the F-15 jet fighters
which Israel got at the same time
as West Germany. The American
statement therefore did not
represent any change of policy
but could be construed as a form
of pressure, the circles said.
That view gained credibility in
light of what some Israelis see as
a subtle change in the American
military supply relationship with
Israel. The U.S. veto of the sale
of 25 Kfir jet fighters to Ecuador
and the Administration's request
to Congress to pass legislation
that would force countries ex-
porting arms systems which
include American technology or
know-how to obtain permission
from Washington even before
approaching a potential
customer, are seen here as part of
the same pattern.
lation in fact is believed to be
aimed primarily at controlling
Israel's arms industry.
Other disturbing developments
were the Carter Administration's
decision not to honor President
Ford's commitment to sell Israel
cluster bombs and the FLIR
night vision system and its
refusal after prolonged delays
of Israel's request to produce
part of the 250 F-16 jet fighters it
intends to buy from the U.S.
The refusal of the cluster
bombs was, in fact, the first time
a new Administration reversed a
pledge by a former Admin-
istration and had the effect of
narrowing Israel's military
pressed fear that the U.S. is
tightening the reins on military
supplies in order to soften Israeli
opposition to an American-
imposed Middle East peace
Despite repeated assurances
from President Carter, Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance and othe L
American officials that the U.S-.J
has no intention of trying t',,
impose a solution of the Middl
East conflict, there is a gnawiru I
suspicion here that an America) .f
plan does exist and will be unJf
veiled sooner or later.
The sources say that all Israe '.
can do now is lessen its deW
pendence on American militar
equipment by expanding its owi
weapons producing capability.
Israel's largest manufacture ,
of weapons systems, Israel Air
craft Industries, is preparing U\
produce a military helicopter.,
within the next four years ar-.-f
has developed blueprints for nS
new, sophisticated combat jet, tV

Force has not yet approved thuj
plans but if the present Americai i
attitude persists it will have nj

Rabin Says Carter
Gave Syria's Assad
'Too Much' Ground
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
said that he thought President
Carter gave "too much" at his
meeting with Syrian President
Hafez Assad in Geneva and.that
he was worried about certain
recent developments between
Israel and the U.S.
Rabin made his remarks to an
Israel Radio reporter during an
electioneering tour of Galilee. It
was one of the few public state-
ments by Rabin since he officially
went on vacation Apr. 22.
HE SAID he had an uneasy
feeling while he watched the
Carter Assad meeting on
television. "I cannot recall that
President Assad asked (Soviet
Communist Party Secretary
Leonid) Brezhnev to meet him
half way, say in Belgrade," Rabin
He was referring to the tact
that Carter agreed to meet Assad
in Geneva instead ot in Washing- J
ton where he, President Anwar*
Sadat of Egypt and King!
Hussein of Jordan had journeyed
to meet Carter.
Rabin indicated that he was
disturbed by the proposal to deny
Israel preferred nation status
with respect to American a;
supplies. He noted that Carter
has yet to approve the proposal
and said he hoped he would reject
HE ALSO said he hoped that
other Arab leaders would not get
any erroneous impressions from
the Carter Assad meeting.
Meanwhile, political source*
here have taken sharp issue with
Carter's statement after his
meeting with Assad that all
Middle East leaders have ac-
cepted the general concept that
demilitarized zones and defense
outposts should be established as
part of a Middle East peace

UJA Mission Underscores Israel's Needs
Can the people of Israel depend
on American Jewry? United
Jewish Appeal National Cash
Chairman Gerald Colburn says
In an interview in Jerusalem
recently. Colburn summarized
the experience of the 45-member
UJA Cash Mission to Israel as
"the right people being here at
the right time to take the right
message people who care."
The key message, he indicated,
wfll be the need for an immediate
and consistent flow of cash from
American Jewish community
campaigns in the face of deep
cuts in the Jewish Agency's 19"-
78 budget. Of particular concern
is the $20.4 million reduction in
the allocation for higher
painful development." Colburn
reported, he asked Defense
Minister Shimon Peres: "Is time
really on our side?" to which
Peres replied: "Yes. if we use it."
There will be no hesitation on
the part of mission members in
putting time to immediate use.
the UJA leader indicated. Each
of the 45. from as many com-
munities, has undertaken to
mobilize cash as soon as he
returns home.
During the ten days they spent
in Israel, mission participants
were thoroughly briefed by
Government and Jewish Agency
leaders on the critical state of
Israel's economy today.
THEY ALSO saw how com-
munity campaign funds are being
used to broaden opportunities for
young people from disadvan-
tage*! sectors of the country so
that they will not stagnate but
will have a base from which to
move forward. They saw what is
being done for the socially, cul-
turally, economically and physi-
cally handicapped. Everywhere
they went, they saw evidence of
Israel's dedication to human life
and human values.
"On every level" said Colburn.
"we feel that we belong and that
we're part of this. We want to
participate." Each of the mission
participants, voicing his feelings
in highly individual ways during
the course of the mission, joined
Colburn in expressing that deter-
Jacob Koton of Hartford,
Conn., mentioned 'Roots,' a
current best-seller. "We Jewish
people know our roots," he said,
"and when our great-grandchil-
dren look for their roots, we want
them to say that their forefathers
of'77 did their job
JAY BAUER of Westport,
Conn., noted "it's not only our
duty to give to the people of
Israel, it's our sacred privilege."
From Avron Sterman of
Buffalo, N.Y., came the comment
"we are committed to Israel's
growth as a people and as a
society. We have to dedicate our-
selves not only for this year and
the next year, but continuously,
year after year."
The future of skim children
worried Fred Kline of San
Antonio, Tex., on his first visit to
Israel "Ten years from now, they
could be activists and revolu-
tionaries. We must provide the
children of Israel with the kind of
quality of life that will give them
a sense of purpose as they grow
WILLIAM Orenstein of
Milwaukee, Wis.. was saddened
to see that "the people of Israel
have been forced to make their
country a fortress, when what
they want to make of it is a home.
We must spare nothing in
helping them do it."
Greater attention to Israel's
education needs was the chief
concern of .Marvin Gibian of
Kansas City, Mo. "No nation can
survive with persisting illiteracy
certainly not the People of the
Sam Zamira of St. Louis con-
tended that the only way to raise
funds for Israel successfully was
to take the task as seriously as if
one were conducting one's own

:hat k is my paramount duty to
go back to my community and
translate Israel's needs into
cash." declared Arthur Melnkk
of Denver. Colo.
Dan Sherman of Chicago. 111.,
invoked the UJA motto We Are
One which he said "capsulizes
our entire experience on this
And there was Gerald Colburn
again underscoring how impor-
tant it was for American Jews to
recognize their responsibility to
Israel and to do something
positive about it.
"The members of this mission
all feel positive about our respon-
sibilities." he said, "because we
recognize our interdependence
with each other. Israel needs
world Jewry- and world Jewry
needs Israel. People who care for
each other must and will take
care of each other. I know that
our communities will respond in
just that way. with a record out-
pouring of cash in the months

TEL AVIV (JTA| The Tel Aviv Municipality has
decided to censor advertisements for movies that emphasize
sex. It will establish a special vice control squad to police movie
posters on private and public billboards to make sure they
contain no depictions of sex or violence.
The decision followed complaints that pornography was
being advertised in public places. The city officials also decreed
that still shots for movies must consist only of scenes passed by
the censors and that they can be displayed only outside the
movie houses where the films are being shown.
On Monday evening, May 2, the Sisterhood of Temple Beth
Israel held its annual Donor dinner at the Holiday Inn West. At
the head table were (seated from left) Cantor Maurice A. Neu,
Estelle Neu and Helen Stoopack, Sisterhood president.

Temple administrator, and Jill Deich, Donor chairman.

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

raw horror of the Holocaust as
depicted at Yad Vashem. Kasten
replied, "Of course not. We all

to know about that period of
Jewish history, to share not only

still linger."

1 Editor's Corner 1
The War of Nerves The Carter Administration's relations with Israel as of late seems to be that of a friend who scares someone with a heart problem into nearly having a cardiac arrest and then at the last moment revives him with a shot of adrenalin. Washington has been doing this by issuing statements that frighten the Israelis and then, when Jerusalem is in the heat of anxiety, calming the situation. Could this be a new type of relationship? Take the week President Carter spent in Europe, for example. No sooner did the President leave for London than a State Department official called in the Israeli Ambassador Simcha Dinitz and told him that Israel will no longer get preferred status in receiving American arms. This rightfully riled Israeli leaders, as well as the American Jewish community for several days.
JDL Forces Philly MD
To Quit Einstein Hospital
PHILADELPHIA (JTA) A hospital radiologist,
who has been accused of being a member of the Hitler Youth
Group in his early teens, has resigned from the staff of Albert
Einstein Medical Center, Northern Division.
The Jewish Defense League, which had been conducting a
campaign to oust him from the hospital, took credit for his
DR. HORST GUNTER SEYDEL has complained that he
has received a steady stream of gruesome Holocaust
photographs in the mail, and has been getting harassing phone
calls late at night demanding his dismissal. Since last winter,
the JDL has picketed his home and the Einstein Hospital.
"His resignation has been greeted with a sense of outrage
by the staff,'' said a spokesman for the Jewish-funded hospital,
which has a predominantly Jewish medical staff. There is no
evidence Seydel participated in any wrongdoing in his youth,
according to hospital administrators.
Before Seydel joined the hospital in 1975, which was
established in 1866 by Jewish charities, he was investigated by
a three-member committee of physicians.
"THE COMMITTEE found no evidence to substantiate
allegations of his participating in terror campaigns and
unanimously recommended support for his application," said a
hospital spokesman. At least two of the doctors on that com-
mittee are Jewish.
! Israel Complains
| Egypt in Violation
! Of Interim Accord
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israel has complained to the
United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) that Egypt has
violated the interim agreement by the large number of troops it
has brought into the Sinai for military exercises.
The Sinai agreement set a fixed number of troops both
sides are allowed to maintain in the areas just beyond the buffer
EGYPT HAS in the past brought in additional troops for
military exercises but since they returned to the west bank of
the Suez Canal after the war games were completed, Israel has
not protested.
However, the large forces brought over to the east bank of
the Suez have remained for a longer period than usual, resulting
in the Israeli complaint.
IN ADDITION, Israeli sources report signs in the Arab
world of hectic military preparations in what is considered here
an apparent effort to put pressure on Israel to accept Arab
terms for a Middle East settlement.

The Danger in Our Withdrawing
IT WAS inevitable that we
should be pushing Europe more
vigorously than before to take
increasing charge of its own
defenses. That is what President
Carter did at the London con-
ference of the European Eco-

There are many reasons for our
purpose. The largest, of course, is
the economic burden we have
borne to maintain a militarily
viable force on the continent
against constant Russian
posturings at the same time that
the Europeans, themselves, have
done little to help us bear it.
THIS IS not to say that our
motives are entirely altruistic. It
makes better sense for us to set
up our first line of defense, say, in
Germany rather than on the East
River in New York.
Still, it has been a constant
source of irritation to us that

If we heard no excessive wails

because the Europeans and the

Some of the reasons for this are
the same as for our own inflation;
some are different, but the in-

Bar Mitzvah Festivity a 'Plus'
Friday, May 27,1977
Volume 6
10 SI VAN 5737
Number 11
The last time I wrote about
Bar Mitzvah was in 1972, and I
doubt that I would be doing so
again had it not been for a recent
meeting when a synagogue func-
tionary commented that at his
child centered institution (lucky
place!) they were already
"booking" dates for the
ceremony in 1983.
Well, perhaps "the ceremony,"
if it refers to the Sabbath service,
is not the exact wording.
Parental concern about the date,
we synagogue functionaries
suspect, has less to do with the
13th birthday of the child just
reaching for seven years of age
than with the assurance that the
social hall will be available on the
preferred date.
ANY suspicion that an astro-
loger may have been consulted or
that the date requested would
permit reading zayda's portion
does not even enter the mind of
those responsible for the traffic
engineering. It's all cynically
attributed to the social aspects of
the rite of passage.
Five years ago, I evidenced my
own hostility to this fitual of
American (and if you saw the ex-
cellent BBC film on Channel 2,
English) Jewry with a column
describing a Miami Beach
family's celebration of the rite
which created internationa'
As the London Chronicle wrote
under the headline, "Conspic-
uous": "Ah, what a Bar Mitzvah
that must have been, with ex-
kings, ex-kings' wives, ex-
ambassadors, an ex-president's
son and a whole Miami syna-
gogue chpir flown over expressly
for the ceremony at the Western
THAT KIND of safari I still
hold to be over kill. But I have
mellowed to the extent that I now
regard the festivities attending
the 13th birthday of a young miss
or lad as not only essential but
quintessential. About bar/bat
mitzvah, I doubt that I can say
the same in all honesty.
As the boy in the film said, the
minimal religious requirements
really could be performed
"standing on my head." While he
proved this in the park, I have a
suspicion that under some cir-
cumstances he could do it on the
bimah as the flashbulbs
brightened the scene and few
present would notice anything
The rabbis who weekly must
gently exhort the strangers who
fill the sanctuary to look at the
siddur and try to concentrate on
the order of the service in the face
of the conversations out there
have given up, I believe, in an
effort to make some religious or
educational sense from the
JUST ABOUT this time of the
year four years ago Conser-
vative laymen under the aegis of
the Institute of Jewish Living of
the United Synagogue of
America agreed that the rite had
been overplayed in the syna-
gogue, that it had become more
the end of Jewish education than
the beginning it should be in
too many cases vulgarized.
Some of the recommendations
that came out of the conference
included raising the Bar Mitzvah
age to 16 or 17; that the ritual of
the 13 year old be accepted as a
chronological event after five
years of attending religious
school and that the Bar Mitzvah
be granted upon completion of
the high school program.
Not only did the idea die in the
Conservative movement four"
years ago, but Bar Mitzvah as an
important ritual at 13 has been
emphasized to greater degrees in
once hostile or neutral Reform
IF IT does nothing else, a Los
Angeles study several years ago
revealed, the Bar Mitzvah brings
families into the synagogue and
the mainstream of Judaism if
only for a few years of those
sampled, most had joined on a
"temporary basis" for that
It is not surprising, then,
according to the study, "For
many families, the stress and
tension associated with the cele-
bration of Bar Mitzvah appears
to have crystallized into per-
manent feelings of hostility
toward the rabbis and syna-
gogues where the ceremony took
We'll leave that to the psy-
chologists to figure that out, and
it shouldn't be difficult.
As I wrote earlier, I have
mellowed. My early days were
not very religious ones, but they
were filled with what I now
"Jewish Joy." There wasn't
weekend, I recall with nostalgia if
not with accuracy, that our large
mishpocha and friends weren't
together for some simcha. From
bris to pidyon ha-ben, chumash
seudah to Bar Mitzvah, the festi-
vals, the holidays (not "holy"),
engagements and weddings (we
kids alwayj participated who
knew babysitters?), funerals and
unveilings, my stomach was
filled with arbus (chick peas) and
mandel brot.
SO WHAT if Bar Mitzvah
really has no ducational value?
There's alway., the party, and if it
can be kept at as understated a
level as the average 13 year -
old's Jewish educational attain*
ment that day, perhaps we can
look upon the whole thing as a
Jewish plus.

and intellectual cultivation are
minimum standards for rabbis.
Jews have always considered the
rabbi in a special category,
always making deference to his
knowledge of Torah and seeking
his special knowledge when com-
munal decisions were to be made.
For the Jewish people, for
almost twenty centuries, the
rabbi was the embodiment of
prophetic ideals. The uniqueness
of Jewish purpose in the history
of the world is to bring these pro-
phetic ideals to fruition in univer-
sal peace. Thus the rabbi
becomes the symbol and the
vehicle by teaching and being.
twelve young rabbis ordained in
1965 by Rabbi Glueck is shared
by hundreds of other rabbis since
ordained in all the seminaries.
The drive to teach Torah and to
implement these teachings has
enlarged the walls of the syna-
gogue to include many areas of
our society. When one of these
rabbis acts as a consultant to Big
Business or Big Government, he
(and now she) brings the sen-
sitive ethical concerns of the
Synagogue into these other
Why do I write about this
now? I am often depressed when
I hear the tired cliche about the
inappropriateness of the rab-
binate for a "nice Jewish boy."
Those who cluck the dull phrase
only express their insipid lack of
understanding of the greatness of
the rabbinic function in all its
varied expressions. With all the
difficulties inherent in the fulfill-
ment of the rabbinic mandate, it
is still the best job for a nice
Jewish boy or girl, because the
richness of human experience as a
rabbi provides for the richest of
Jewish experience.

Home from Israel Trip
South Florida delegates who attended the 10-day
Israel Bonds New Leadership Conference in Israel were
welcomed home at a reception and dinner last Monday
night, May 9 at the Kings Bay Yacht and Country Club.
The 26 South Floridians were among the largest
delegations in the mission of 150 young leaders of Israel
Bonds representing communities throughout the United
States and Canada who met with leaders of Israel for
private briefings on the nation's economic and political
Ronald Krongold, Miami attorney, who is chairman
of the southeastern region of the New Leadership, said "In
the course of the whirlwind tour of the country, they
studied Israel's needs and problems, conferring with
people from all walks of life and held discussions with
kibbutz members."
HE ADDED, "The role of the New Leadership is a
vital growing one, comprising dynamic young people who
reflect the 'new look' in the Jewish community. Our
delegation will use the experience as a springboard to
provide more effective ways of strengthening Israel
economically through the Israel Bond program."
The delegation included Mr. and Mrs. Leonard Arvin,
Hollywood; Mr. and Mrs. David Dubrow, Miami Beach;
Charles Gans, North Miami; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Gillon,
Hollywood; Mr. and Mrs. Larry Gotlieb, North Miami
Beach; Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Kail, Hollywood; Dr. and
Mrs. Fred Khani, Fort Lauderdale; Daliah Lavi, North
Miami; Michael Pascal, North Miami; Mr. and Mrs. Gene
Perlin, North Miami Beach; Mr. and Mrs. Stanley
Kossoff, Miami Beach; Dr. and Mrs. Robert Rosenblum,
Miami Beach; Mr. and Mrs. Arnie Sedel, Hollywood, and
Dr. and Mrs. Pablo Tachmes, Miami Beach.
The leader of the South Florida delegation was
Arthur Kail, cochairman of the South Broward New
Leadership Division. David Dubrow, a member of the
South Florida Israel Bond staff, was group coordinator.
AMONG THE highlights of the mission reported by
the delegation at the dinner was a reception at the home of
the President of Israel, Ephraim Katzir, and a meeting
and dinner in the home of former Defense Minister Moshe
Dayan and Mrs. Dayan.
Other highlights were a reception given in Jerusalem
by Mayor Teddy Kollek, a reception and dinner at the
home of Sheikh Jaber Muadi, Deputy Minister of
Agriculture, and dinner with the adviser to the Prime
Minister, Yehuda Avner.
The delegation also took part in Independence Day
festivities and a special ceremony celebrating the tenth
anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem in
Zedekiah's Cave in the Old City.
In addition to touring major cities, they visited
Israel's "West Point" and held a dialogue with the officers
and men at the training school. They also visited many of
the development projects established with the aid of
proceeds from the sale of Israel Bonds.

does elsewhere, the point being
that one way to maintain a high
level of prosperity in the face of
inflation is to spend even more
money for productivity.
If this kind of economic hocus-
pocus is to work at least for a
while, if as a contradiction in
terms it is not to peter out before
everybody has a chance to enjoy
its fruits however temporarily
the historic if bloodstained way
to deal with economic malaise is
through the upbuilding of
national defensive capabilities.
That is what Mussolini did in
Italy in the '20s and '30s, and
that is what Hitler did when he
became chancellor of Germany.
THAT ALSO, incidentally, is
what the French chose to do
beginning with Le Grand
Charles, erecting a presumably
prosperous society on a military
base going it alone, as it were,
against the grain of the European
Economic Community in an
effort to recreate the glories of La
Grande France.
It is for this reason especially
that the protests at the Carter
conference were more formal than
felt, and especially so from the
Germans who have long since
begun to take on a strident tone
uis-a-vis relations between
Washington and Bonn.
THE IMPORT of the piece is
that Washington simply fails to
understand Germany's latest
needs a chilling sentiment
reminiscent of German govern-
ment leadership and German
society prior to, and certainly
after, the ascent to power of the
Nazi war machine.
It is, as I have already sug-
gested, also reminiscent of the
go-it-alone French, who long ago
rejected American ascendancy on
the continent as insulting to
French national prestige as

defined in military terms. (Valery
discard d'Estaing refused to
attend the first session of the
Carter conference in London
because an EEC spokesman was
among invited guests. In French
eyes, the EEC is not European
but American; it is the opposite
side of the NATO coin.)
While in theory, and to some
extent, in practice, the Carter
demand for European military
commitment is a good one, while
the demand will make the burden
of inflation one that is far more
equitably borne among the in-
dustrialized nations, it also has
inherent dangers. It comes at a
bad time.
FIRST, the Europeans are no
longer grumbling about the end
of their free ride. They seem
ready and eager for it, not only as
a "solution" to inflation, but for
the very same nationalist
reasons that have motivated tl
Gaullists to put France back <

The Falasha Jews are
entitled to enter the State

Interior, Shlomo Hillel, re-
affirmed this month.
One of Israel's most
basic laws, and cherished
principles, the Law of the

meaning emigrant or wanderer,

Prof. Faitlovitch made the
Falashas his life cause by estab-
lishing a teacher training school
in Addis Ababa as well as pro-
Falasha committees in various
world Jewish communities.
ACCORDING to Falasha
tradition, they are descendants of
of every Jew to return to
the Holy Land from which
Jews were expelled by the
Who are the Falasha
A GROUP of Black Jews,
living mostly in the regions north
of Lake Tana in Ethiopia, they
were reached in 1870 by a French
scholar. Joseph Halevy, while
studying Amharic dialects there.
Prof. Halevy's pupil, Jacques
Faitlovitch, visited the group in
1904 and so began a world
awakening to the Falashas.
(Falasha is actually a Ge'ez word.
Jews brought by King Menelik I,
son of King Solomon and Queen
of Sheba to Ethiopia.
"Historically, we are not sure if
the Falashas are from Solomon
and Sheba," says Prof. Aryeh
Tartakower, the head of the
Falasha Relief committee in
Israel, "but their history does go
back at least 1,000 years."
Whatever their origins, it is
known that from the 13th cen-
tury, they suffered wars, mas-
sacres, slavery, land confiscation,
forced conversions and degra-
dation, while clinging to the
Jewish religion based on a literal
interpretation of the Bible.
OVER THE years, the number
of Falashas remaining in
Ethiopia has drastically dwin-
dled. Half a million lived there in
the 16th and 17th centuries; the
most recent census shows there
are about 29,000 left, now on the
verge of extinction.
The Falashas are treated as
second-class citizens, very poor,
living on rented land and mainly
engaged in agriculture. They also
arc involved in crafts such as
pottery. spinning. weaving,
basketry, gold and silversmith
Since the 1960s, the Israel
committee has organized various
relief activities in Ethiopia.
EIGHTEEN schools, giving
both general and Jewish
education, were also established
under the auspices of the Jewish
In February, 1973, Israel's
Sephardi Chief Rabbi. Ovadia
Yosef, after careful research and
investigation, declared that the
Falashas were descendants of the
Tribe of Dan and were Jews.
(In the time of the Judges,
Israelite society was a loose
association of tribes, held
together by a common religion
and common ancestry. According
to the Bible, the tribal grouping
originated with the twelve sons of
Jacob and the tribe of Dan was
one of these.)
TODAY, there are about 500

Falashas in Israel who live
mostly in the southern part of the
country, in the towns of Ashdod
and Ashkelon.
They all speak Hebrew fluently
and are interested both in being
together and in remaining in-
volved in agricultural work.
The Jewish Agency over the
years has been involved in at-
tempts to bring Falasha- to
Israel. After the Ethiopian revo-
lution, the new government

1977. 401p, $12.95.
ROTTENBERG'S "how-to" book has opportunely
come out upon the crest of the genealogy craze given a
shot in the arm by Roots. While Haley's book has
spurred many ethnic groups to begin to discover their
ancestors, Jews had been searching for t .ir heritage
long before the excitement of the television series.
Perhaps because history is so vital to our Jewish
identities, we have always been keenly aware of the
relationship between our past and our present.
The author offers both an historical perspective in
Judaic ancestor hunting as well as practical steps to
follow in actually preparing a family tree.
BEGINNING WITH sources in America. Rot-
tenberg shows the reader how to investigate birth,
death and marriage records; Federal census records,
and ships' passenger lists.
Many Jewish organizations in the United States
maintain archives useful for genealogical research.
Such organizations include local and regional Jewish
historical societies; major research collections such as
those at YIVO, the Jewish Theological Seminary and
Yeshiva University.
And believe it or not, some historical societies of
other religious groups can be helpful; for example,
material is available through the Mormon Genealogical
OF COURSE, libraries both in the United States
and abroad are useful in this kind of research. Besides
including a list of resources in various countries around
the world, a special section is provided for the excellent
genealogical resources to be taken advantage of in
Finally, the author provides a massive guide to
around eight thousand Jewish fmily names. This
alphabetical guide indicates origins of names, sources
of information about each family, as well as the names
af related families whose histories have been recorded.
Finding Our Fathers appears to be an excellent
reference tool for those who wish to begin the search for
their "roots." This reviewer is of the belief that one of
the most meaningful gifts parents and grandparents
can give their children is a well-kept- record of one's
family. It creates a bond with one's living relatives and
those deceased, as well as a strengthened identity as a
member of the Jewish people.

kce a substantial loss of job

luating from college should
anticipate the probably necessity
of seeking employment away
from these areas. However, some
economists are predicting a
renaissance of the central cities
starting in the mid-1980s; if this
prediction materializes, there will
be job opportunities in what is
now a restricted job market.
JEWISH women, either as un-
attached females or as marriage
partners, will be responsible for
their own economic support as
the prevailing reliance on the
male for support probably
becomes obsolete in the next
generation. Dr. Weisman pointed
out that Jewish women were
more carrer minded than those
in the general population, and the
income of Jewish women in the
future would become more im-

security, whether or not they

Jewish women have been less
affected, he added, and he stated
also that the competition from
minority groups had not been as

humanities, social sciences, and
administrative fields in education
and civil service.
Only those with superior
academic qualifications, in-
cluding Jews, will find "easy

fessions of law, medicine, den-
tistry, and academic positions in

one proceed to choose a career."
He pointed out that youth in
older cultures had little choice in
career selection, but that this had
changed under the American
