Launching Letter Campaign
Hadassah Chapter Here Protesting Begun's Incarceration
"LET YOSEF BEGUN GO!" is the cry
of members of the North Broward Chapter of
Hadassah, which is cooperating with the
South Florida Conference on Soviet Jewry.
Esther Cannon, North Broward Hadassah
representative in the Conference, has an-
nounced that a letter campaign will be
directed to Communist Party Secretary
General and President Leonid Brezhnev to
protest "the injustice and persecution" that
Yosef Begun is undergoing.
Having applied for an exit visa, as many
thousands of other Soviet Jews have done,
Begun was arrested and sentenced to a term
in prison. His 12-year-old son was left crying
"Papa, Papa, Papa" as his father was
hustled away in a police van.
Mrs. Cannon stated that "it is incum-
bent on us to expose Soviet injustices of this
kind. It is a matter of fighting against Soviet
violation of human rights. We must write
letters to Mr. Brezhnev, to the Russian Em-
bassy in Washington and certainly to the
U.S. State Department. We must also en-
courage President Carter in his efforts on
behalf of human rights. At no time in our
history has letter writing been so important
and so effective."
"Letters of encouragement, love, and
support" should also be sent to Yosef Begun,
Mrs. Cannon stated. These should be ad-
dressed to him at Matross Kay Tishiva
Prison, Moscow, USSR. Addresses of other
imprisoned Soviet Jews are available at the
office of the South Florida Conference on
Soviet Jewry in Miami.
Copies of any replies should be for-
warded to the South Florida Conference.

THE MEALS were seen by
Brodzki as "the first step" in
what he said would "ultimately
be a comprehensive program of
nutrition and other major social
services in behalf of the elderly."
He said that the nutrition
program itself would shortly be
expanded to "a meals-on-wheels"
service, with foods carried into
the homes of those among the
elderly either handicapped, or
otherwise incapacitated, to travel
to the central dining places. He
foresaw such an extended
program either in 1978 or 1979.
The nutrition program has
been launched in cooperation
with the Area Agency on Aging.
The Agency is a State of Florida
organization funded by the
Federal government. The
nutrition program itself is
federally subsidized under Title
VII of the Older Americans Act.

the Jewish Federation's "keer

Planning For
Richards Day
Now Underway
A steering committee met recently
to plan Jewish Federation WECARE
Day at Richards Department Store in
the LauderhiU Mall which will take
place Thursday, Aug. 11. Rovi Faber,
general chairman of WECARE, noted
that this is the first time that a local
department store has offered a portion of
its daily receipts to a philanthropic
cause. Richards will contribute 10
percent of all sales in excess of its normal
expected business for that day, and in
addition will donate $1 for every ap-
proved new charge account that is
opened that day.
The store is also promoting the
event through advertising and publicity
in the local media as well as through
mailers and flyers to the Jewish com-
munity and the store's credit card
customers. Richards will present a range
of gifts that day and will give the Jewish
Federation credit for the opening of all

As UJA Campaign Closes:
Kollek, Strelitz Stress Solidarity
The 1977 United Jewish
Appeal campaign the moat
successful since the Yom Kippur
War came to a close last week
with a vigorous statement of
American Jewish solidarity with
reunified Jerusalem.
UJA General Chairman
Leonard R. Strelitz of Norfolk.
Va., told a UJA National Cam-
paign meeting in honor of Jeru-
salem Mayor, Teddy Kollek.
that: We pray that Jerusalem
will be a light unto the nations.
For the Jewish people, it is a light
in our soul, the symbol and bed-
rock of our faith. We number 13
million in the world today. If we
are united as Jerusalem is and
must be united there need be
no limit to our accomplish-
ments." More than 500 campaign
leaders from throughout the
United States attended the
MAYOR Kollek termed Jeru-
salem a city that "pulls on very
deep strings in the Jewish soul.
For centuries, the return to Jeru-
salem meant independence for
our people, a chance to decide our
own fate." Kollek praised the
UJA as "the one organization
that cuts across all areas of life to
enable American Jewry to
present a unified expression of
solidarity with the people of
Describing Jerusalem as "a
mosaic," Kollek noted that the
city has "all the problems of all
citiesplus some moreand all
the problems of Israel plus
some more." He stressed the
increased humanitarian needs
there, brought about by the great
number of ivjw immigrants who
have settled in the city, the sharp
social gap 1 etween the poor and
the middle class, and the need to
build bridges between the Jewish
and Arab communities. "We are
still far from achieving all we set
out to achieve," he said.
Strelitz. making his first public
appearance since his election as
general chairman a month ago
said: "As we fulfill our pledge to
the people of Israel, we must
fight for the human values im-
portant to all people. For too
many, human values have today
been forsaken for the open valve
of oil flowing from the feudal
states of the Middle East. We
Jews remember, however, when a
tiny flask of olive oil kept the
lamp of freedom lit for eight
days. We must not let the world
forget that the fuel of freedom is
not oil. but the spirit and courage
of men and women devoted to
basic human values.
"OUR TASK is to keep alive
the old dream the dream that
has spanned 4.000 years of
Jewish life and found continuity,
strength and direction in this
century in the United Jewish
Appeal. For we are united in our
commitment. Jewish in our out-
look and our appeal is for funds
to help build a world of dignity,
honor and peace."
Frank R. Lautenberg. who
served as general chairman
during the past three UJA cam-
paigns and who is now president
of the organization, reported
that, with 80 percent of the 1977
campaign completed, a final total

Human Rights and Belgrade
The fate of Soviet Jewry, including those Jews who
want to emigrate to Israel as well as those who want to
maintain a Jewish life in the USSR, hinges on how
vigorously the United States and the West European
countries press the issue of human rights at the conference
to review the 1975 Helsinki Agreement in Belgrade this
President Carter has made human rights the corner-
stone of his foreign policy. The Belgrade meeting will be
the first major opportunity for the Administration to
show how it will act on the principles it has been
proclaiming since it came into office Jan. 20.
The Helsinki Conference was held in 1975 at the
insistence of the Soviet Union which wanted its
domination of Eastern Europe legitimized. This was done.
But in return the Western democracies demanded that the
Soviet Union and other Eastern European Communist
bloc nations agree to certain principles of human rights
including the right of emigration.
Paying Lip Service
But the USSR has paid nothing but lip service to
this. Since the signing of the Helsinki agreement,
emigration of Soviet Jews has decreased while harassment
and punishment of Jewish activists and other Soviet
dissidents have increased. This harassment has grown
since the Carter Administration announced its support of
human rights in what many 3ee as a direct test of the new
American President.
As the Belgrade conference neared, the Soviets
clamped down on Jewish and non-Jewish activists. Anti-
Semitism has become more pronounced in the USSR and
its official media.
All of this has reached a chilling climax in the an-
nouncement that Anatoly Sharansky, a leading Soviet
Jewish activist who has been accused of being a spy for
the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), will be tried for
treason, a capital offense. This clearly indicates a return
or at least a threat of a return to the worst days of
the Stalin era.
The United States and the other Western
democracies must respond to this with a strong demand at
Belgrade that the human rights provisions of the Helsinki
agreement must be lived up to by the Soviet Union.
Genocide Treaty Waiting
It is about time the United States Senate ratifies the
Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the
Crime of Genocide. In fact it is past time that it was
ratified. It should have been done 28 years ago.
The United Nations General Assembly unanimously
adopted the Convention on Dec. 9, 1948. The United
States strongly supported its adoption and signed it two
days after it passed the General Assembly.
Eighty-three countries have approved the Con-
vention. President Truman sent the Convention to the
Senate for ratification June 16, 1949. So has every
President since then. Every American Jewish
organization and the American Bar Association, among
others, have supported ratification.
But filibusters and other legal maneuvers have
blocked its approval by the Senate. Now President Carter
has urged ratification of the treaty and it is imperative
that the Senate act.
It is inconceivable that the U.S. should not be a
signatory to a treaty that says that genocide is a crime
and those who commit it should be punished. Our country
has been the leader in promoting a world order in which
adherence to the rule of law and protection of human
rights is foremost.
Sen. William Proxmire (D., Wis.) put it most clearly
when he told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee
that the Convention "attempts to safeguard under inter-
national law the most fundamental human principle the
right to live. It is that simple. It is that complex."

Ruth Shack Pays Bitter
Price for Her Com

THE QUESTION is an easy
opener. "Why did you do it?" I
ask Ruth Shack.
There she lies in her procrus-
tean bed leased out to pygmy
minds. Mythic Procrustes
created a bedcheck station on an
ancient Greek road. Passers-by
were required to submit to a test.
If they were too tall for the
bed, he used an ax to chop them
down to size. If they were too
short, he concocted a fearful
machine, something like a wrack,
that stretched them to fit.
FOR A fragile moment, at
least, Ruth Shack seems chopped
down to size. Too tall she was for
the gnats of convention; the
Bible-flingers, who like Pro-
crustes, can quote anything,
chapter and verse, to fit the needs
of the moment; the conservatives
of the status quo ante.
"Sen. Harry Cain wrote the
first anti-discrimination or-
dinance back in 1968," says
Ruth. "The Coalition had gone to
the Community Relations Board
long before the last commission
election to demonstrate the exis-
tence of discrimination against
homosexuals here."
Djck Pettigrew was CRB
chairman at the time now he's
in the muck of government af-
fairs trying to reorganize the
Federal bureaucracy at the
request of President Carter.
Procrustes, I fear, will have his
way there, too.
ANYWAY, Pettigrew agreed
with the coalition that cause had
been shown. The Fair Housing
and Employment Appeals Board
screened the issue and also
County Attorney Stuart Simon
recommended the inclusion of a
statement on affectional or
sexual preference to be added to
the existing anti-discrimination
ordinance Harry Cain had
written years before.
All that was before Ruth
Shack. "It sat at the Dade
County Commission level waiting
for someone to sponsor it," says
Ruth, and her emphasis shows
that Procrustes really had failed.
No one was going to imtimidate
her although some have tried,
even calling her a lesbian.
passed. The storm to rescind it
followed. Repeal now sets her
public image low. But herself,
Ruth, still stands tall and lovely,
a light of conviction shining from
her, a spirit that suggests that no
matter what happens to her own
political future, it is the chumps
who have been shortened, not
Everytime a chump succeeds,
he grows shorter. His victims rise
and shine. Ruth was true to
herself. That is why, these days,
Ruth stands so tall. It is an
emotional illusion stemming from
fervent conviction.
"And so, of course, it was for
you to sponsor it," I say.
"There were a lot of people for
it, straight and Gay," Ruth
replies. "Throughout my 23 years
in Dade County, I have known
them in Concerned Democrats, in
Common Cause, in the American
Civil Liberties Union."
mits, "it would probably never
have been introduced."
After her election in
November, 1976, she showed the
proposed ordinance revision to
County Attorney Simon to
assure herself of its legality.
"Several of the commissioners
decided to support it out of
respect for me. And that is how it

ironies in all of this. One is that

Ruth does not say it, but I con-
clude that such dramatic inspira-
tion in Anita Bryant can be a
compelling and lucrative thing.
So the second irony is no real

dorsed by the coalition but
who voted against the ordinance.
AND SO I repeat my question:
"Why did you do it?"
"The aftermath of the repeal
tells the story. It is no longer a
human rights issue," says Ruth
Shack who, among other things,
sees the oppression of Gays in the
same way that, as an ardent
feminist, she sees the exploi-
tation of women. Now she adds a
third: "Suddenly, it is a Jewish

describing one threat: "We will

and drag you through the streets
of Dade County until you are

"What is your political prog-
nosis?" I ask her bluntly.
"IT DEPENDS," she says,
"on the Save Our Children cam-
paign." Ruth admits to not
having foreseen that the cam-
paign would be able to pull its act
together so successfully.
"Anita Bryant is the only truly
outstanding and honest per-
sonality in the organization," she
says. "The rest are incredible

gotten nowhere without her,
including her husband. Bob
Of Green, she says that he is
"manipulating" Anita. Then,
there are Bryant's minister, the
anti-feminist Shirley Spellerberg,
and the perennial South Florida
conservative, Mike Thompson,
among others.
"IT WAS Anita and her
charismatic career that melded
them so successfully together."
And thereby hangs the second

band, "was and still is respon-

"How?" I ask Ruth, "do you

THAT SENSE of serenity that
shines from her gathers together
dren, may go national," meaning
it may become a rallying ground
for political extremists and
general malcontents everywhere.
"If their so-called decency and
morality campaign does go
national who knows?" Ruth
muses. "It has already been
approached by a major conser-
vative organization." She will not
be more specific.
"Everything came together
toward such a potentially bad
end. The truth is," says Ruth,
"that Anita has been planning a
slow retirement from her singing
career for a long time. "We,"
meaning the commission vote to
extend the existing anti-dis-
crimination ordinance to protect
Gays, "gave her a vehicle to do
just that." And even worse.
I REPEAT: "What is your
political prognosis?"
"The earliest possible time to
demand a recall would be in
October of this year. I don't think
they'll be able to pull it together
by then. Besides, I run again in
September, 1978. They might
just as well wait and try to get

"AT THIS point," she replies,
"I will run again."
"But you say you are tired."
"I am proud to have brought
the issue before the public"
"Even though it boomer-
anged?" I ask.
"The Coalition expects to go to
the highest courts," says Ruth,
ignoring the point.
"Should we ever have the
opportunity to try to reintroduce
the ordinance, I will not be the
one to do it. I have already done
what had to be done."
The community, she adds,
wouldn't tolerate the expense of a
recall vote after the expense of
the referendum on repeal.

make between this and some
potential regret in her voice for
having involved herself in the

The Reluctant Farmers: Now Happy with Moshav life
No one wanted to be a far-
mer. .or even dreamed he would
have to be a former. .when
Azour Peres packed up his family
in Casablanca in 1952 wife,
Sarah, five children and a father
who still wore a cassock and
turban and spoke only Judeo-
Berber to bring them to Israel.
Azour was a small tradesman in
the Jewish ghetto of Casablanca,
the mellah, and he assumed he'd
find similar work in Jerusalem,
David'8 City, where of course
_ the family planned to live.
At the transit camp near
Safed, where the family was
assigned a one-room, tarpaper
shack with a tin roof, Azour
talked to the Jewish Agency
official an Ashkenazi who
spoke good Arabic about
moving to Jerusalem. And he
filled in time with odd jobs on
neighboring farms, picking olives
and hoeing tomatoes. Finally,
one day he was called to the local
Jewish Agency office and told
that a place had been found for
his family: in the Galilee.
AZOUR refused. What
about Jerusalem?
The Agency put it to him
frankly. He wasn't needed in
Jerusalem. There was no work or
place for him to live. But he was
needed and thousands like him
- in the Galilee. In Jerusalem,
he would be on his own. On a
kibbutz or a moshav, there would
be help.
Reluctantly, the Peres family
agreed to go to Moshav Dove v.
The Jewish Agency, using
funds transmitted from UJA/
Federation campaigns, provided
them with a strip of land,
an advance of 100 chickens
and chicken coops, seedlings for
the orchards and the help and
guidance .of professional ad-
AZOU,though he would stay
on the mosbav long enough to
make a little money and take his
family to the city, where they
belonged: Farming was for Arabs
and peasants.
But it wasn't so easy to make a
go of thing* at Dovev. The land
was desolate and isolated, the life
spartan. The winters were cold.
The moshav was right on the
Lebanese border and the farmers
lived with the constant threat of
terrorist attack. Every year,
Azour told himself that "next
year" he would pick up and take
his family to Jerusalem. The
family was still just "passing
It's hard to say when "passing
through" became "standing
firm." One by one the reluctant
farmers became dedicated
THE FIRST to "turn" was
Sarah, Azour's wife, who decided
it was best to live on a moshav.
Azour was beginning to make
some profit on his chickens, even
more on his apples. There was a
community center, a medical
center, a synagogue, a nursery
school and an elementary school.
Sarah's sister, who had taken her
family to Haifa, didn't have it as
well. And, perhaps most impor-
tant of all, Sarah's children were
"golden" tail, healthy, happy,
almost sabraa.
Then it was Berbert, Azour's
oldest son, who discouraged his
father from abandoning the
moshav. True, he said, the land
was rocky and not suited for
agricultural cultivation, but a lot
could be done. .if someone
studied farming. Berbert was
going to be that someone. When
he finished eighth grade he was
going to agricultureal school and
coming back to help Azour.
Finally, Azour himself started
to come around. The turning
point came after the Six Day
War, when the Jewish Agency
lent each moshav family money,
repayable on easy terms, to
enlarge their tiny homes. Today,
Azour lives in a large four-bed-
room house, recently redecorated.
He is not rich, but he lacks little,
except central heating for the
winter months. Even that iant
beyond reach, if the apple crops
are good this year.
OF AZOUR'S five sons,
Berbert is already a member of
the moshav, constantly experi-
menting with new crops and new
farming methods. He is married
to a local girl and is a father.
Antother son, Eliezer, is in the
army and another in agricultural
school. The younger two are in
school: if they follow the current
trend in Dovev, they will go into
agriculture, too.
Azour is all farmer now, a
partisan of rural living. In fact,
he's presently the head of
Dovev's committee to find a
solution to the problem of the $&
second generation all of whom :::::
want to remain at Dovev or at Sx

course, will inherit Azour's own

The Ashkenazi case worker |$
who speaks good Arabic, the
same man who originally sent
Azour to the moshav, says that
all over Israel today the story is
the same. The very families who
thought it was beneath them to
be farmers are now fighting for
their sons to continue living and
working on the land. .and not
have to settle in the cities.
They didn't want to be farmers when
they first came to Israel from Morocco 25
years ago. Now the family ofZaour Peres
(upper left) is developing a second
generation of settlers on Moshav Dovev,
established in the Galilee by the Jewish
Agency with United Jewish Appeal
funds. Oldest son, a trained agricul-
turist, is experimenting with new far-
ming methods adaptable to rocky soil
conditions; his wife and mother, Sarah,
are shown (lower left) awaiting his return
from army reserve duty. A second son
(upper right) will work land on new
moshav provided by Jewish Agency;
youngest son (lower right) says he, too,
will stay on the land. Family was guided
and aided over quarter of a century by

of partnership between people of Israel
and American Jewish community, as ex-
pressed through UJA-funded programs.

"As the son of German Jews
who had fled the Nazis, he
(Kissinger) was particularly
sensitive to what he regarded in
Nixon as a dangerous brand of
anti-Jewish prejudice born of
ignorance," Woodward and
Bernstein wrote.
"He saw in the President an
antagonistic, gut reaction which
stereotyped Jews and convinced
Nixon that they were his
enemies. The remark by Nixon
which most often unsettled
Kissinger was well known to the
President's close associates: 'The
Jewish cabal is out to get me.' "
AND EVEN though Arthur
Burns, another Jew high in
governmental circles, opined that
Nixon was not truly anti-Semitic,
that astute observer concluded
that the issue was rather one of
"ugly strands of prejudice in the
man." Burns recalls that Nixon
had a penchant for using epithets
for many groups he didn't fancy.
The basic trouble seemed to be
that in his tireless drive to get

of Joe McCarthy, Nixon declared
that Acheson had "color blind-

toward the Communist threat in
the United States." And unable
to match the intellectural
prowess of Stevenson, the man
who fancied himself king as well
as President, stooped to the
depths of rhetorical cheap shots
by asserting that Stevenson held
a degree, "a Ph.D. from the
Acheson college of Cowardly

Nor can it be said that liberals
were alone in fearing Nixon's
cavalier stand on civil rights and
archaic views on civil liberties.

could never appreciate the

miquel f Rom pueBlo
now making it in Iscael
He got his name, Miguel, from
classmates in his hometown of
Pueblo who demoted him to the
Chicano (Mexican American)
crowd when they heard that Jews
weren't Christians.
All of the Chicanos lived on the
other side of town, too far for fre-
quent visits; Miguel (Victor)
Herstein spent almost every
afternoon of high school "pluck-
ing away" on a cheap pawn shop
guitar his father once brought
home on a whim.
THERE WAS no guitar
teacher in Pueblo, so Miguel
patiently lifted tunes from
records and dissected them until
he knew what music wadEkll
about. m
What professional training
Miguel did have (about six
lessons) came from Carlos Mon-
toya, the internationally famous
flamenco guitarist, who once per-
formed in Pueblo and not only
gave his teenage fan a free
demonstration, but also en-
couraged Miguel to come back-
stage for more every time he
played in the area.
At the University of Colorado,
where he should have majored in
music but still didn't know that
he was any better than hundreds
of other amateur Bob Dylans,
Miguel tried pre-med and blew up
the organic chemistry lab.
EVENTUALLY he graduated
with a degree in 19th century
comparative literature.
All in all, a very unorthodox
beginning for the soft-spoken,
low-key 30 year old guitarist
who immigrated to Israel in
October, 1976. Yet since Miguel's
arrival, his phone hasn't stopped
ringing; within his first two
months in the country he had
performed on radio, appeared on
television, written for and also
backed an Israeli-made docu-
mentary, and become part of a
popular Israel singer's new three-
man show.
In fact, most Israelis in the
entertainment field agree that
Miguel Herstein is well on his
way to becoming a "big name"
OF COURSE, it isn't every
new immigrant who breaks in so
easily. But then Miguel isn't
really new; he got his first big
breaks, the ones that converted
him from-"local boy with guitar"
to "successful professional" nine
years ago in Tel Aviv, strangely
enough at a time when he wasn't
trying to become a performer.
"I came here purely by ac-
cident the first time," reminisces
Miguel, "the moment I grad-
uated university. There was no
Zionism of religious commitment
involved, just a girl who
preceded' me to Europe and fell
in love with an Israeli. I took all
my money out of the bank and
bought a one-way ticket to Tel
Aviv, determined to sweep her off
her feet. Instead, I ended up with
a wedding invitation and no
money to get home, holed up in a
dumpy hotel near Tel Aviv and
existing on bread and bouillon
cubes which I made into soup
with hot tap water.
"I had put myself through
college as part of a blue grass
group, so guitar in hand, I
started knocking on doors. My
first job, at twelve dollars a week,
was playing in the variety show
of a luxury hotel every Friday
evening. Twelve dollars a week
was what I needed to live on.
"DESPERATE, I took an-
other job a. a rather seedy
nightclub. Ever try to tune your
guitar while a stripper puts oh
her pasties? Well, I guess every
musician has to pay his dues, and
those were mine.
"In the end, though, it was the
nightclub which brought me my
luck because someone spotted me
and recommended me for a tele-
vision entertainment show. That
led to an appearance on a similar
show and all of a sudden I had
lots of work and enough money in
the bank for a return flight. But
by then I liked Israel and what
was happening to me, so I
Miguel it was Israelis who
insisted he use his un Israeli
Local boy with guitar
nickname professionally acted
on educational television, backed
records for top Israeli vocalists,
and toured with a jazz dance
group. Steady work, six nights a
week for a solid year, and the -
type of experience every would-be
professional needs, came from an
Israeli production of Garcia
Lorca's "Blood Wedding."
WHEN THE show ended,
Miguel headed for New York with
his Israeli bride. "I had a good
case of rock fever," he explains.
"I was starting to feel confined."
In New York competition was
rough, reviews written in Hebrew
carried no weight, and Miguel
and his wife, Hadi, almost
starved on their combined in-
comes of $46 a week. If Hadi
hadn't been enrolled in CCNY's
Graduate School of Social Work,
the couple probably would not
have stuck it out long enough for
Miguel to be spotted by CMA
(Creative Management Artists,
one of New York's major booking
companies) who arranged a stint
at the Plaza Hotel playing
flamenco music.
After almost seven years of
saying, "next year in Israel," and 4
armed with a two-inch-hic'- jtack
of rave reviews, Miguel, Hadi and
their young son finally arrived in
Tel Aviv for good, "to pick up
where I left off." Since then it's
been one lucky break after
"THERE JUST aren't that
many good guitarists in Israel,"
believes Miguel, who plays
flamenco, classical, jazz, rock,
and folk music with equal ver-
"You know, when I left the
United States I was just at the
point where I could have made it
really big there. Everyone
thought I was crazy to come to a
small country with its limited
possibilities. I disagreed. I'd had ^
a slice of the show biz life and I '
knew I could always go back to
the States for concerts, but I
wanted my roots to be here."

THE GREATEST open panic '

sometimes contradictory feelings
about this situation. David
Rome, archivist of the Canadian
Jewish Congress, in an interview
published in the December 10,
1975 Canadian Jewish News, said
that on the one hand, he feels this
is a very different Quebec from
that of the 30's, there being no
danger of anti-Semitism in
modern Quebec nationalism.
"I just don't accept the
premise that a nationalist society
would subvert its minorities.
This is a new Quebec. It's made
of educated young, intense
nationalists who have seen anti-
Semitism as a retrograde thing.
They've chucked it out with
He believes Quebec Jews have
no basis for panic. "I haven't
seen anti-Semitism from separat-
ist, nationalists or extremists in
many years. I've just never seen
evidence of it."
AT THE same time, however,
Rome noted that the "second
Quebec," with a substantial
residue of church-based anti-
Semitism, still exists. "That
second Quebec has far from
disappeared," he says. "It has
not been wiped out by the Quiet
Revolution and we don't know
when it will arise again. (The
Quiet Revolution refers to
Quebec's transformation from an
agrarian church-dominated
society to a modern, urban,
industrial society begun in the
"That relic or remnant of
the older society is pervasive; a
weighty, influential and sub-
stantive segment are holding to
the old way."
Rome feels that much of
Quebec's anti-Semitism has been

rogate Englishman, as "middle-

nearest 'white man' you can hit is
the Jew," he explains. The Jews
could have done more to relate to
the French community. "Why
didn't we learn French?" "Why
did we have to be identified with
the English?"
ROME IS ALSO worried
about the anti-Israel sentiment
among some of the Qu&bec left
and in its union heirarchy. Yvon
Charbonneau, for instance, the
head of one of the large teachers
unions, stated upon returning
from a recent anti-Zionism
conference in Libya that
Quebec's million-and-a-half
French school children should be
taught anti-Zionism.
The most positive sector of
Quebec Jewry vis-a-vis the
French, Rome says, are the
Francophone Sephardim, who
number 20,000 in Montreal. In
fact, the Catholic School Com-
mission has funded their day
school. Ecole Maimonides. But
the Anglophone Jews have not
always been sympathetic to the
Sephardic community's needs.
"They've set about to anglicize
these Jews, very much like

The conflict over language and
education is the issue to watch in
determining the situation of Jews
and other minorities in Quebec.
Two years ago, the Liberal Party
(the "party formerly in power)
passed its famous Bill 22, which
required all beginning school
children to either attend French

exam, which they would have to
pass in order to attend an

"For Jerusalem's Sake ..."
$150 Million
Cash Goal:
June 30.
c - As the Jewish people cele-
brate the 10th anniversary of the
unity of Jerusalem, our eternal
capital is once again the center
of attention. Jerusalem the
hope, the promise, the city of
David, whose very name signifies
peace ... cries out for response.
As we celebrate, let us pause
and reflect ... for our most
meaningful response to that an-
cient pledge remembered is to
convert our personal and com-
munity pledge of support for
Jews in need around the corner,
around the world, and especially
in Israel .. where expectations
await fulfillment into cash.
We have much more to do. We
have much more to give.
Not only to our fellow Jews in
Israel and around the world
but right here in our own com-
munity, around the corner.
We Are One
