Jewish Philanthropies Arm Formed Under Faber-i
A Foundation of Jewish Philanthropies
as an arm of the Jewish Federation and as an
adjunct of the Federation's United Jewish
Appeal (UJA) campaign has been estab-
lished here under the chairmanship of Arthur
Faber, a veteran member of the Federation's
board of directors and a noted Fort Lauder-
dale insurance executive.
Jacob Brodzki, president of the Federa-
tion, in commenting on the Foundation's
purpose and significance, said that it was
brought into being "to formulate, organize
and carry through a legacies program that
would enable the funding of needed and
specialized programs locally, nationally and
overseas, and in that way expand the philan-
thropic and humanitarian scope of Fort
Lauderdale Jewry."
HE TERMED the Foundation's estab-
lishment "one of the most important steps
the Fort Lauderdale Jewish Federation has
yet taken to insure the viability of humane
programs that could not be underwritten in
normal ways, out of annual campaign
Brodzki lauded the Federation's board
of directors for what he said was its "vision"
in creating the Foundation, "adding that its
existence "is a ready reference to and index
of the Fort Lauderdale Jewish community's
maturity and its desire to advance and
strengthen the causes of Jewish survival,
and inter-group and international goodwill
and peace."
More than 25 prominent lawyers, ac-
countants and business leaders met Thur-
sday afternoon. June 23, in the Tower Club
high atop Fort Lauderdale's landmark First
National Bank Building to hear Norman
Lipoff. chairman of the Foundation of Jewish
Philanthropies of the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation, general chairman of that Federa-
tion's Combined Jewish Appeal, and newly
named as a national chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal.
LIPOFF described the Miami Founda-
tion's program and activities since its
creation five years ago, noting that its total
of funds as a resource for both the CJA cam-
paign and for selected educational, cultural,
youth, senior citizen, medical and other
programs had risen to over $12 million.
Although considerable monies are allocated
from year to year by the Foundation's board
of trustees, Lipoff explained, the central
Foundation fund is replenished as persons
come forward to establish legacies ranging
from simple endowments, wills and in-
surance bequests lo gifts of unimproved real
estate or other non-depreciable property,
short and life income irrevocable trusts, and
a major, multi-thousand-dollar-and-better
institution known as a Philanthropic Fund.
The well-known Miami Jewish leader
complimented the Fort Lauderdale Jewish
Federation for its initiative in organizing the
Foundation, asserting that while many
Federations and welfare funds have endow-
ment programs of one kind or another, there
are only a handful that have Foundations on
the large order of the one in Miami. He listed
New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Boston,

Area Men Participate In Tel Aviv
Showing of Israeli Furniture
I Two Fort Lauderdale Jewish
iders who are nationally promi-
Int in the furniture field were
pong a select group of
merican home furnishing in-
^strialists, retailers and
irketing experts who took part
the first "Israel Furniture
|t'fk" exposition, held May 15-
in Tel Aviv, under the
Ispices of the Israel Ministry of
Immerce and Industry.
Seymour Gerson of Pompano
ich. a member of the Jewish
leration board of directors,
Nathaniel Gora, cochairman
the Federation's UJA cam-
Ign in Palm-Aire, were active
in the show which in addition
to displaying a wide variety of
formal and leisure pieces
sought to assay the marketa-
bility of Israel furniture in the
United States.
ACCORDING to Gerson and
Gora, the large-scale introduction
of Israel-made furniture on the
American home furnishings
market is much desired by the
Israel Government. Both men
noted that the Israel government
is "anxious to begin furniture
shipment to the United States in
the near future." with a goal of
$100 million in such exports over
the course of the next five years.
ederation Board Cites
.ouis, Anita Perlman
The following resolution was adopted at a special meeting of the
Board of Directors of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Resolved: that whereas Louis and Anita Perlman are out-
standing leaders of the Jewish community and the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale and have rendered in-
valuable service to this community, and whereas they have been
and are now recognized nationally and internationally for their
philanthropic endeavors in behalf of the State of Israel;
Be it resolved, on the occasion of the establishment of the
JNF Forest in their honor in the American Bicentennial Park in
Israel on June 29, 1977 that the Board of Directors of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale extends its felicitations
and congratulations to them and wishes them many more years
of good health and happiness and other opportunities to enrich
their own lives and the lives of so many others that have been
and will continue to be touched by their philanthropy, goodwill
and humanity.
Signed at the offices of the Jewish Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale on this 24th day of June, 1977.
Jacob Brodzki,
Irving L. Geisser,
Executive Director
The two local leaders noted
also that Israeli furniture tech-
nology and manufacture com-
pares favorably with those of the
United States. They singled out
in particular the sophistication of
Israeli machinery, the high
quality of materials going into
the finished products, and the
" finesse of styling" in all lines.
Gerson is the former owner and
head of Forrest Products of
Knoxville, Tenn. Gora was
known as a manufacturer's
representative for many years.
Both reported that non-Jews as
well as Jews took part in the five-
day show.
Israeli Flights
Worry Saudis
LONDON (JTA) Flights
by Israeli Air Force jets over
Saudi Arabian territory are
causing deep concern to the
Saudi leadership, according to a
report published here.
Arabia and the Guilt, a weekly
review of the Middle East, writes
that the jets fly unchallenged
into Saudi air space from the
northwest and pass over the
major northern Saudi air base at
Tabuq before heading south for
Bab al-Mandeb at the southern
mouth of the Red Sea.
THE SAUDIS believe that
Israelis are either conducting
photo-reconnaissance as
preparation for an air strike
against the kingdom in a future
Middle East flare-up, or they are
warning the Saudis against
joining in a future war.
The Saudi leadership is said to
be convinced that Israel would
ultimately try to draw Saudi
Arabia into a war and try to
knock out her American-supplied

Israel Complains to UNEF
Of Egyptian Violations
TEL AVIV-(JTA)-Israel has complained to the United
National Emergency Force (UNEF) that Egypt has violated
the Sinai agreement by having more men and weapondsthan
are permitted in the limited forces zone. It has demanded that
they be immediately withdrawn.
Of special concern to Israel is that Egypt has installed 40
SAM-7 ground-to-air missiles, 37 on the east bank of the Suez
Canal and three on the west bank. This was confirmed by
UNEF inspectors.
Israel has also complained that Egypt has nine infantry
battalions instead of the permitted eight and has 309 soldiers
more than the 8,000 permitted.

Time Bomb: The Jewish Future
We are a people who climbed faster and
farther than any other immigrant group in
America. That is very important for young
Jews to know and remember, because many
of our kids don"t know it and don't under-
stand it and the non-Jewish community
doesn't appreciate it.
Our bubbas and zeydahs came to
America very poor, with less than fifty
dollars a family in their pockets. On the
average, they were among the poorest of the
immigrant groups that ever came to
America. They were also among the
THE JEWS came with families more
often than other immigrant groups, where
there was more of a tendency for the man to
come first, alone. But among Jews, the
family constellation was much more of a
pattern and this led to the community's con-
We were urban compared to other
groups. We came from little towns, which
meant we didn't like the idea of going to
farms and we stayed in big towns when we
came to America.
And we were different in one other way.
We were the only immigrant group that
didn't go back to our country or origin in
large numbers. A third of all other im-
migrants went back home, only about eight
percent of us left America.
NOW LET us jump forward in Jewish
history and talk about some of the "time
bombs" of changing values and social
preceptions that confront our community
We are now affluent. But it must be
remembered that we do have a large group of
poor Jews most of them over the age of 65,
forty percent of whom live on less than
$4,000 a year.
We have stopped having children in
significant number and, from the youngest
immigrant group in America 60 years ago, we
are now the oldest group. We have more
people over the age of 60 than anybody else.
WE ARE at the point now of zero
population growth among younger Jews.
There are almost no little children. Go to the
centers and the synagogues and look at the
trendlines on education and enrollment. You
will see that there is no large group of young-
sters the future Jews.
There is another group that has crept up
on us in the last few years the single
parent. It is now an epidemic, between
divorce among the middle-aged and divorce
among the young and the death rate Studies
have shown that it is the widow and the
single parent who need communal services
the most and yet they are often the least
present in our synagogues and federa-
tions. ..too frequently because they cannot
afford to be there.
About 40 percent of all young people are
eligible to go to college in the United States,
and about half of them finish In the Jewish
community, close to ninety percent go to
college. Seventy-five percent of Jewish males
and about sixty percent of the Jewish women
in the age group 26-29 have bachelor's
WHAT HAPPENS to those young
Jewish women who do not go to college?
They go to work in industries where there
aren't young Jewish men and for the first
time in modern history, we have the pheno-
menon of a significant number of Jewish
women marrying non-Jewish men. It is true
that, according to Jewish law, the children of
these marriages are Jewish. But if my
mother's name were Molly Goldberg and she
married Sean O'Brien and my name is Kevin
O'Brien, although I am legally Jewish, what
am I psychologically and sociologically?
These are all time bombs within our
community. Here is another. Your younger
brothers and sisters aren't getting married.
They like living together. What do you do
about this, when you are a minority ethnic
group shrinking more and more in numbers
and seeing this numerical drift coupled with
postponed marriage and highly indivi-
dualistic expectations which run counter to
traditional Jewish values?
Here is another time bomb. If there was
anything that was typical of the young
Jewish adult in the 1940s and 1950s, it was
affiliation. Scratch a Jew and you'd find a
member of five organizations. Today, a
young Jewish adult doesn't believe in affilia-
tion; he is an individual. We are no longer
dealing with people who perceive a single,
organized Jewish community.
THIS IS further complicated because
children of affluent Jews don't want to be
affluent Jewish producers. They want to be
affluent Jewish consumers. The sons and
daughters of Jewish businessmen are
engaged in the service professions and, while
they make good livings, they do not generate
capital. And they can't give their money
away to the same degree as their parents if
they are not regenerating it. This means that
the way fund-raising is done must be dif-
ferent 20 years from now than it is today.
There is going to be a redistribution of
Jewish wealth and unless we find ways to
spread the base and deal with fund-raising
differently, we are going to encounter serious
American Jews are very mobile; we
move more than anyone else. This mobility
contributes to physical discontinuity and
means that, if there aren't psychic ways of
building a sense of community, there is a
great problem about how to develop it.
Finally, there is the issue of the middle-
age role-change. Today, we have a discernible
number of people who, after 20 to 25 years of
predictable, so-called responsible behavior,
have the need to completely disrupt their
lives and lifestyles and move into entirely
different ways of living. Their search for a
new identity has yet unknown implications
for the community.
THIS IS the wave of the future. It
provides the framework for new ways of
looking at Jewish life, new styles of building
Jewish life and new techniques for ap-
proaching Jewish life. I believe that when
people today look for sustenance and
direction and fulfillment, they too rarely look
at Jewish sources. I believe that those of us
who have found answers within the Jewish
model have the job to turn on, turn back,
turn over and turn around this group of
people who, in many instances, are running
in search of direction of new purpose of
new models and give them the sense of
courage nd perspective, drive and incentive,
dedication and responsibility that says:
come back to us, be part of our community,
help us build future sense, direction and

th Maccabiah Games to Open Tuesday
Breslau Named Chairman
?f UJA Overseas Programs
TEL AVIV lone bugle
sounded the requiem, as eleven
torches were lit in memory of
eleven Israelis slain by Arab ter-
rorists. A crowd of over 50,000
spectators stood at attention,
wiping tears from their eyes. In
the central arena stood 2,000
uniformed men and women
athletes, and the flag bearers
lowered their country's flags to
half mast.
This was four years agoat
the Ramat Gan Stadium. The
torches were lit to commemorate
the eleven Israeli delegates who
were assassinated by Arab
terrorists at the Olympic village
at the Munich Olympics. The
huge Israeli crowd and the ath-
letes had assembled for an event,
which proved more than
anything else, that the Jewish
Nation is not deterred by assas-
sinations, that Arab terrorists
will not interfere with Jewish life,
and above all, that the Jewish
Nation is united, and that it's
affinity is unique.
THAT WAS the ninth Mac-
cabiahthe all-Jewish sport
eventsometimes called the
Jewish Olympiad.
As the 10th Maccabiah draws
near taking place in Israel
from July 12 to 21 a glimpse or
flashback to the background of
the Maccabiah may once again
enliven this phenomena of an all-
Jewish gathering irrespective
of language or continent a
competitive Jewish sport
gathering, fostering the unseen
bonds which tie Jewish com-
munities and Jewish individuals
The Maccabiah which
emerged from the Maccabi move-
ment has been on the map of
world sport since 1932, a date
which marks a milestone in the
long route of Jewry's progress
towards resurgent statehood. It
was then that some 30,000 Is-
raelis in the newly built Stadium
of the growing town of Tel Aviv
cheered what may be termed as
the "flower of world Jewish
youth," who had come from 22
countries for sport, fair-play
competitions and experience.
THE MACCABI movement,
the world's Jewish non-party
sports organization, had not
come into being in a vacuum. It
had emerged against the back-
ground of the situation of the
Jews in Europe. It was on the
grounds of persecution, pogroms
and ghetto conditions that the
early Zionist leader, Max Nor-
dau, a collaborator with Dr. Ben-
jamin Zeev Herzl, came out with
a call for muscle-Jews, Jews that
were healthy and strong in body
so that they could defend the
Jewish soul and spirit. Jewish
defense (Haganah) groups came
into being, and since it was illegal
to form any underground move-
ment (even to defend the lives of
one's own family), it was the
gymnastics organizations which
provided the shield for the boys,
and later girls, who prepared
themselves, physically, to defend
the Jews and to ensure the
Jewish continuation.
It was from these gymnastic
and sport groups that the Mac-
cabi movement was formed as a
roof organization for the various
local organizations.
And as the Maccabi movement
developed, it was felt that a mass
demonstration of its existence
and achievements was necessary.
Yossef Yekutieli was one of the
first to urge the Maccabi move-
ment to hold International
Sports Meetings the Macca-
LIKE THE Olympiad, having
its origin in the Greek mountains,
the Maccabiad (as it was called in
^earry days) had its origin with the
lent Maccabeans, the Has-
lites, who demonstrated to
i world of those days that Jews
id become muscle Jews if they
had to defend their values,
traditions, spirits and, thus, on a
Tuesday in March 1932, this
vision came to be a reality.
Hundreds of Jewish athletes
from 22 countries came to what
was then Palestine, for a three-
day sports event. A long pro-
cession of blue and white mar-
ched through the partly-
asphalted and partly-sandy
streets of early Tel Aviv, to the
Stadium and this event, which
had its impact on all present,
preceded the sports competitions.
Three years later, with Europe
under the clouds of Nazism and
Facism, another Maccabiah took
place. This was in April 1935, and
many present-day Israelis owe
their lives to that Maccabiah, as
they decided to remain here and
not return to the inhuman con-
ditions in Europe, which cul-
minated in the Holocaust.
It was the Second World War
which interferred with the
preparations for the third Mac-
cabiah, and it was not until after
the Holocaust, the War of
Liberation and the Establish-
ment of the State of Israel that
the third Maccabiah took place.
No longer was Europe the center
of Jewish life in the Diaspora, it
was the Americas. South Africa
and other places which were
dominant in the field. Yet Jewish
Maccabi clubs soon emerged on
the map of free Europe (whilst
some had to close as the socialist-
communist regime ordered them
to do so).
SINCE THEN, the Maccabiah
has assumed the Olympic-style of
meeting every four years, and
Jewish youth from all over the
world gather to meet fellow
Jewish youth in Israel.
It is the Macabiah which stirs
the Jewish youth into Jewish ac-
tivities in their respective com-
While the early Maccabi clubs
came into being to defend the
physical existence of Jews and
their spirit, it is today's Maccabi
which is called upon for no less an
important task to preserve
Jewish continuation, Jewish
vision, Jewish heritage and
tradition, not from physical
persecution, but from the free
society and economic wealth.
the Maccabi clubs of the world,
keeps Jews together, brings Jews
nearer to Jewish values, to have
that feeling of being unique,
proud of our Jewishness. and
when Jewish sport is threatened
by politics, when Israeli sports-
men are ousted from sports
venues and organizations, it is
good to know that the Jewish
Nation is behind you, that the
Jewish Nation is united, solidly,
against all attempts to under-
mine it's unity.
And so, once again, we anti-
cipate a Maccabiah, the tenth of
its kind, to be the greatest ever.
Some 2,500 athletes will take part
in 25 sport branches, and a
special Bridge and Chess
Tournament is to be included in
the program. Young Maccabees
will come to Israel during the
Maccabiah Games and many,
many sports fans will accompany
their teams.
The strength of the Jewish
Nation will once again be demon-
strated, this time through sport.

donation of the proceeds from the
play had a multiplicity of gratifi-

human relationship." He con-
tinued, "First, we wanted to be of

to show our concern for those in

we wanted to become closer to
our neighbors here in Century

show a different side of retire-
ment, the side where one can get
involved by filling the day with

telling people in Broward County
that we here at Century Village

Schizophrenic Politics
The Israeli political experience these days is a schizo-
phrenic experience.
Israel refuted the Labor Party in the May elections
and gave the nod to Prime Minister Begin and Likud.
And then, last week, Israel went to the polls in the
Histadrut election where voters completely reversed
themselves and gave Labor an overwhelming victory.
A good deal of this, we suspect, is easily under-
standable. The Labor defeat in the May elections was a
repudiation of scandals in the Labor Party's ranks. It was
a statement of disaffection on the part of Israelis with
deteriorating economic affairs. It was an expression of
disenchantment with 29 years of Labor rule and the
general feeling that it was time for a change.
Since then, Israelis have been treated to the unhappy
view of Prime Minister Begins attempt to create a
coalition government. Mainly, Israelis have seen a Demo-
cratic Movement for Change refusal to join the coalition as
an even greater strengthening of the Religious faction grip
on Begin with whom Begin has had to wheel and deal in
order to survive.
Such Likud compromises as the decision on autopsies
are representative of the sudden reversal from secular
government that Israelis must now reckon with and must
surely regret in their month-long shock of recognition of
what, in their repudiation of Labor rule, they have
This is not meant as criticism of Religious faction
politics but as an explanation for the overwhelming Labor
victory in the Histadrut election. It is an ominous note
that echoes the original Israeli fear that no Begin govern-
ment would long survive.
We are Shaken
The American Jewish community is visibly shaken
by the Carter administration's direction in the Middle
East. Mainly, the President says one thing, but he does
Mr. Carter never tires of telling the Jewish com-
nity that the United States will never seek to impose a
'le East settlement, particularly one that is
detrimental to the security of the State of Israel.
On the other hand, he had made broad and sweeping
statements during the past few weeks about a "Pales-
tinian homeland." He has resurrected the ghost of the
Rogers plan based on a return to the pre-1967 borders with
only "minor" rectifications. He has passed the word down
to the Jewish community through his Jewish aide (Robert
Lipshutz) that we better tell the Israelis that we simply
won't support them if they refuse to see things as the
President himself sees them.
Then there was the Walter Mondale speech the other
week in San Francisco, which was designed to alleviate
American Jewish fears on these Carter tendencies, but
which merely threw more fuel on the already out-of-hand
fire now searing our confidence in the administration.
Anti-Boycott Law
With all of this as backdrop, we nevertheless
congratulate the President on his signing of the new anti-
boycott law.
No one would be so foolish as to anticipate that the
law will bar all discriminatory practices in American
business and industry that bow to the Arab boycott of
Israel practices which result in discrimination, also,
against American Jewish personnel in these enterprises.
But the new law will certainly make it more difficult
for those enterprises that place profit above American
principles of freedom and justice.
We welcome President Carter's statement as he
signed the bill which, in essence, argues that submission
to the purposes of the boycott diminishes the dignity of all
peoples of all ethnic origin, and therefore diminishes the
dignity of the nation.
We welcome his reaffirmation of the "special status"
linking Israel to the United States. Which brings us to our
beginning statement. If there be such a "special status,"
how does he justify his Middle East foreign policy as it is
now being shaped? For surely, that "special status" would
be meaningless were his policy to prevail.

Case of Maldistribution of Wealth
Franklin D. Roosevelt, the
wartime President from the
urbanized North and East, set as
one of his major goals that of
bettering the economic lot of
dwellers in the rural South.
Jimmy Carter, peacetime
President from the South (no
longer quite so rural), has said he
wants to try to develop jobs and
end poverty for folks in the
Northeast's big cities.
An obvious admirer of FDR
with political traits reminiscent
of both the Roosevelts who
achieved Presidential status,
Carter isn't finding the
challenges of welfare, jobless-
ness, and especially youth
unemployment, all that easy. The
thorny issue of welfare alone has
brought him to acknowledge that
it is a lot more complicated than
he at first realized.
being chided in some quarters for
coming up with a welfare
program consisting chiefly of
bones and waiting desperately at
be fleshed out.
"Joe Califano and I have
worked with other private and
government agencies to assess
the present welfare system and to
propose improvements, but it is
worse than we thought," he said
in effect shortly before leaving for
the London Economic Summit
But the President is new at the
job, the demand for welfare
change cannot be silenced by
mere pronouncements, and this
nation will have to prove it can
make practical improvements in
the system or else face the ex-
plosion of social dynamite that
has been stockpiling for 40 years.
Here is the raw mix of the
"WELFARE" has become an
abused and angry word, laced in
some minds with contempt.
Critics have been swift to exag-
gerate the evils attending it;
recipients have cursed what
seems to them the paucity of it;
the smug have insisted that lazi-
ness alone has made it necessary.
Yet careful students of
technological displacement and
the maldistribution of wealth
know well that most of the fault
is not with those forced on to
welfare but with such factors as
inadequate jobs and housing,
lack of job training, dispersal of
industries from reachable zones
to suburbs where living costs
mount, and lack of job training.
Hardest hit are urban youth
and many in small towns: Of
America's 7 to 8 million
unemployed, almost half are 24 or
under. Many young people
anxious to work have never had a
job. For Black young people, the
current estimate is 36.1 percent
unemployed; the Urban League
sees the figures at perhaps 60
NEW YORK is a special case
In the past four decades,
thousands have come into the big
city, many from the rural South.
New York City contributes half a
billion dollars to the welfare
funds going to its residents.
Sooner or later, the federal
government must take complete
charge; but this imperative faces
the undying hostility of those
who curse big government
nightly as they say their prayers.
How, then, can we expect not
just change, but progress on this
top American concern?
Because the obligation of
government to provide food,

Human Rights Debate Inadequate
Friday, July 8,1977
In German Tribune
The recent Bundestag debate
on humnn rights was flat, inade-
quate and in some instances
unworthy of the noble subject
When the MP Hans Huyn
attempted to broach the core of
the matter, pointing out that it
was necessary to take a stand for
human rights in the GDR even if
this were to irk its rulers because
it put their authority, in question,
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt
succeeded in diverting the debate
and bringing about a totally
superfluous discussion on whose
"political forebears" had put up
more resistance against Hitler in
CDU LEADER Helmut Kohl
wasted much of his speaking time
in demanding an apology for
heckling from the Coalition
benches and assuring Parliament
that nothing was further from his
mind than to want to "interfere
in the affairs of others."
And SPD Chairman Willy
Brandt stressed that standing up
for human rights was "no sub-
stitute for foreign policy."
Neither Coalition nor
Opposition seemed to have
understood (or indeed wanted to
understand) what the human
rights issue is all about. They all
acted as if this were a new-
fangled political tool, a sort of
ersatz politics to be handled with
care and skepticism
AND YET human rights are
the fundamental prerequisite of
democratic politics as a whole
which must serve as a criterion
Human rights are "The
ideology of the West" an
ideology the lack of which has
been much lamented latterly.
Pragmatism and tactics (by no
means coincidentally) based on
Metternich with his longing to
perpeturate the status quo have
made us virtually completely
forget this "ideology."
Soviet civil rights protagonists
with the stature of a Solzhenitsyn
or a Sakharov were necessary to
remind the West of the in-
alienable ethical foundation of its
policy. Their exhortations have
at last been heard at least in
President Carter's America.
A NEW orientation of Western
politics, going right down to the
roots, has set in, and Bonn, too,
will have to adapt itself to the
new situation.
U.S. Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance, speaking before the
NATO Council in Brussels,
clearly outlined the political
strategy in East-West relations
resulting from Washington's
stand on behalf of human rights.
Up to now, he said, the Soviet
had made use of a double
strategy. On the one hand,
detente and trade to the benefit
of both sides and, on the other,
"implacable ideological warfare"
on all levels of international
politics, open support for Com-
munist movements in the
"partner states of detente" right
down to out-and-out subversion.
IN THE future, Vance said,
there will no longer be such a one-
sided interpretation of the
detente concept. The West, too,
will in future know how to find
III I lnHfHaitlM I
above all it will call injustice by
its name, even in the East.
Politicians in Bonn must have
had their ears ringing when
Horst Ehmke, speaking in the
human rights debate, brushed
aside as mere propaganda the
Opposition's motion that a docu-
mentation on violations of human
rights in the GDR be prepared for
the CSCE Follow-up Conference
in Belgrade.
And Chancellor Schmidt, a
suspicious tremolo in his voice,
reminded the Bundestag of "the
young girl in Dresden and the
young man in Leipzig for whom
no rhetorics in the Bundestag
could provide an exit permit
enabling them to come to the
Federal Republic.
THIS MADE it clear that
Bonn intends to keep the human
rights discussion only just
ticking over by constantly
drawing attention to current
bilateral talks and agreements
which allegedly had helped many
people in the past and which
must not be talked into the
But it must at last be said that
the much-vaunted improvement
in human relations is no alibi for
political faintheartedness and
shamefaced collaboration with
dictatorship. Such attitudes are
only useful if they do not streng-
then a dictatorship, but become
part of the big struggle for
human and civil rights which has
begun in Eastern Europe.
What is at stake in the East
bloc is more than a couple of
young people who have fallen in
love with each other behind the

Carter Invites Begin
To White House
For July 19-20 Visit
WASHINGTON-(JTA)-The White House confirmed
that President Carter has invited the newly installed Prime
Minister Menachem Begin of Israel to confer with him and his
principal aides in Washington on July 19-20.
Begin announced in Jerusalem earlier that he had received a
letter from Carter containing warm congratulations and an
official invitation to visit Washington during the week of July
CARTER'S LETTER was received within hours after
Begin s government was sworn into office following a long
Knesset debate. According to the text of the letter released by
the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem, the President ex-
pressed a desire to establish a personal relationship with the
new Israeli leader and to exchange views on a Middle East
peace settlement and other matters of mutual concern to the
U.S. and Israel.
The President wrote: "...As you know, I am deeply com-
mitted to helping Israel and its neighbors seek a lasting
peaceful resolution to the conflict between them___I am sure
that this is an objective I share with you and I would welcome
your ideas on how progress toward peace can best be
achieved___I would like, therefore, to invite you to visit the
United States during the week of July 18 and to join with you in
a partnership of principle leading to a just and peaceful set-
tlement of the dispute between Israel and its neighbors."

The Jewish Floridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Friday, July 8,1977
How does one distinguish fact from lable, sort out the
truth from myth especially with respect to Israel? Was
Prime Minister Menachem Begin a terrorist? What's the dif-
ference between the pre-lsrael Irgun Zvl Leuml and the
Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)? Here Is lust such a
sorting out of tact from myth thanks to the American Is-
rael Public Affairs Committee.
Will the Real Terrorist Please Stand Up?
MYTH: "Menachem Begin is a Terror-
FACT: Begin's Irgun fought against
British rule of the Jewish homeland. Unlike
the PLO, the Irgun struck exclusively at
military targets. Unlike the PLO, the Irgun
sought to minimize civilian casualties by
giving advance warning often at the risk
of its own soldiers. The Irgun fought to
terminate British rule, not to terrorize popu-
lations. The Irgun retaliated against British
floggings, imprisonment and hangings of its
In contrast, the PLO has attacked only
civilian targets, never military targets. It
has murdered innocent women and children
deliberately. The PLO has no
political i military purpose in its acts, save to
sow fear and seek revenge.
MYTH: "Begin's Irgun committed a
Massacre at the Arab village of Deir
FACT: An authoritative study of what
occurred at Deir Yassin was published on
March 16, 1969, by the Israeli Ministry for
Foreign Affairs. It offered these major
details and conclusions:
Deir Yassin was one of two villages (the
other was Castel) which was blocking the
road to Jerusalem and keeping food and
water from reaching nearly 100,000 be-
leaguered inhabitants of Jerusalem. It was
inhabited by several hundred villagers and
sheltered one company of Iraqi troops and
another company of Palestinian Arab
On April 10. 1948, about 100 members of
the Jewish Irgun and Stern groups drove up
to the village with a sound truck and ordered
it to surrender. Over 200 Arabs evacuated
the village immediately and were escorted by
the Irgun, unharmed, back to Jerusalem.
White flags were extended from the
windows of the buildings nearest the Jewish
forces. An advance party entered the village
and was hit by a hail of bullets.
Fierce house-to-house fighting followed.
The combatants were able to take the stone
houses only with grenades.
When the attack ended, it was found
that 254 civilians had been killed. They had
either been held as hostages by the Iraqi and
Palestinian army regulars who ambushed the
Irgun or they had sought protection with the
Arab soldiers.
Yunes Ahmed Assad, a prominent Arab
survivor of Deir Yassin, said:
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
"The Jews never intended to hurt
the population of the village, but were
forced to do so after they met enemy fire
which killed the Irgun commander." (Al
Urdan, April 9, 1955)
MYTH: "Begins Irgun bombed the
King David Hotel and killed innocent
FACT: The British military command
and Criminal Investigation Division for the
Mandate were located in the King David
Hotel. The Irgun planted bombs in the base-
ment of the hotel on July 22, 1946. At great
risk, the Irgun twice called the British com-
mand and warned them to evacuate the
hotel, as bombs had been planted. In a dis-
play of poor judgment, the British refused to
evacuate. As a result, 91 British, Arabs and
Jews were killed in the blast.
MYTH: "The Palestinians have a right
to the West Bank."
FACT: No Palestinian state was formed
in the West Bank and Gaza during the 19
years of Arab rule. In fact, there already is a
Palestinian state. It is Jordan, which oc-
cupies four-fifths of the historic Palestine
Mandate. Israel occupied only one-fifth of
Palestine. The majority of the people of
Jordan are Palestinian, as is the majority of
the bureaucracy and army. It should not be
forgotten that nearly three-quarters of all
Palestinians still live in the mandate area,
and never left.
The PLO has little direct contact with
the vast majority of Palestinians. The PLO
has asserted that it desires a state in the
West Bank only to facilitate the conquest of
PLO Chieftain Yassir A rafa t
Israel and that the existence of Israel is
fundamentally null and void, and that the
Jews have no right for a homeland.
In his insistence that a Palestinian state
not be established within only a few miles of
Israel's population centers, Menachem Begin
enjoys the support of the vast majority of
Israel's citizens.
MYTH: "The West Bank belongs to
FACT: Jordan never had legal title to
the West Bank. When the Mandate of Pales-
tine was partitioned in 1948. a Jewish state
and an Arab state, based in the West Bank,
were formed. But the Arab legion of King
Hussein's grandfather. King Abdullah,
occupied the West Bank forcibly in 1948 and
the Arab Palestinian state died aborning.
Abdullah took this action specifically to
prevent a state under the control of the Nazi-
supporter, Haj Amin el-Husseini, the leader
of the Palestinians, from coming into exis-
tence and threatening his own kingdom.
In 1950, following stage-managed
political meetings in the West Bank, Trans-
jordan officially annexed the West Bank and
was renamed Jordan. Only Britain and
Pakistan recognized this annexation; many
Arab states shunned Jordan as a result.
From 1948 until 1967, Jordan remained
in control of the West Bank. During that
time of total Arab control, there was no move
to establish a Palestinian state there, or in
Gaza, which Egypt had seized. The claim for
a Palestinian state only arose after Israel
repelled Arab aggression in 1967 and took
control of the historic Jewish territories of
Judea and Samaria in the West Bank.

ticated endowment programs. Fort Lauder-
dale, he commented, was joining "good
company" in establishing its Foundation.
Lipoff, who until recently was also a
leading figure in the UJA's National Young
Leadership Cabinet, told the Fort Lauder-
dale business professional that they had it
"in their power to suggest to, and direct,
their clients to consider the Foundation as a
suitable vehicle for the handling of their
estates." In addition to the considerable tax
savings that accrue to an individual who
establishes an endowment or legacy in the
Foundation, he. noted, the Foundation does
not charge its donors anything for helping in
estate planning, handling the bequest, trust,
fund or legacy, or acting as an executor.
Persons who deal with banks and other
financial institutions in these matters in-
variably pay fees for the services they get
free from the Foundation.

men have not been permitted to
serve on U.S. military missions
in Saudi Arabia," Rabbi Her-
ztberg said, adding:
"We are told that this ex-
clusion no longer is consistently
enforced; and indeed, Executive
Order 11478 (President Ford's
directive of November 20, 1975)
would no longer permit any
Federal agency, including the
military branches, from comply-
ing with any such religiously-
related bar."
The American Jewish
Congress leader added, however,
that "while disavowing a policy
of formal religious exclusion,
some Arab countries maintain
that all American Jews must be
conclusively presumed to be
sympathetic to Zionism and thus
unsuitable to represent the U.S.
within their borders in so sen-
sitive a capacity as the military.
"This policy," Rabbi Hertz-
berg wrote, "would result in as
rigid an exclusion of American
Jews as had been accomplished
earlier; it would merely be using a
different rubric. We are, there-
fore, writing to ascertain ap-
proximately how many American
military personnel currently are
serving in countries in the Middle
East and how many, if any, of
that number are Jews."
THE American Jewish
Congress spokesman conceded
that in many government depart-
ments such information may not
be readily available because of
the "constitutional disability to
conduct an official inquiry into
In the military, however, he
said, "religious inquiries are
permitted.. .because of the need
to provide supplementary
religious facilities arising from
the physical removal of military
personnel from their homes and
usual places of worship." Rabbi
Hertzberg is a former U.S. Air
Force chaplain.
"Since this information is, there-
fore, readily available to the
military services, we would be
most grateful for whatever
enlightenment on this issue you
can provide."
The Pentagon did not reply
until May 19 when a Defense
Department spokesman wrote:
"Information regarding religious
affiliation of DoD (Department of
Defense) military personnel by
geographical locations is not
maintained. A declaration of

even a search of each individual's

THE LETTER, signed by
Robert F. Kelley, acting director

panied a statistical breakdown of

Mr. Kelley wrote: "DoD policy
prohibits consideration of
religion in selection of individuals
for assignment. In addition,
individual members of minorities
may decline assignments to
countries that may discriminate
against their minority, without
prejudice to their future careers."
Kelley's letter was deemed
"unresponsive to our principal
inquiry" by Phil Baum, associate
executive director of the
Congress, who responded on May
27 in behalf of Rabbi Hertzberg.
"We are at a loss to under-
stand why the Department is
reluctant to disclose information
which your letter concedes is
available or readily at hand," Mr.
Baum wrote, adding: "You note
that the Department does not
classify by geographical location

HOWEVER, in the report
accompanying DoD news release
of Mar. 28 it is indicated that as
of December 31 of last year there

291 in Saudi Arabia; and 19 in

limited number of records should

era of computer technology the

"Moreover, we fail to perceive

that the declaration of religious
preferency by military personnel
is voluntary. It may be that the
resulting statistics are not totally

"Even accepting the

"FINALLY, your letter
suggests the possibility some
Jews may have declined assign-

of their objection to prevailing
anti-Semitism. However, no
proof whatever is cited in support
of this conjecture. We wonder
whether, in fact, there has been
even a single instance of this kind

Reform Rabbis Sing New
DineHave More Kids
GROSSINGER, N.Y. (JTA) In an historic shift in the
tradition of the Central Conference of American Rabbis (CCAR) the
organization of the Reform rabbinate June 23 adopted a position paper
suggesting that Jews have larger families "because there are simply
not enough of us to be assured survival in succeeding generations."
The CCAR convention said that "while Reform Judaism ap-
proves birth control, we also recognize our obligation to maintain a
viable and stable Jewish population. Therefore, couples are en-
couraged to have at least two or three children."
THERE IS an increasing awareness of the possibility that in 100
years, "only a few Jews will remain: all of the others will have
disappeared, victims of assimilation, mixed marriage, indifference,
and a low birth rate."
Rabbi Jonathan M. Brown of Temple Israel in Long Beach, Calif.,
was the author of the paper.
The CCAR also voted to join with its congregational counterpart
in the Reform movement, the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, in creating a mass membership organization for
Reform Jews who wish to join the World Zionist Organization.
THE NEW group is called the Association of Reform Zionists of
America (ARZA). ARZA chairman Rabbi Roland B. Gittebohn of
Boston announced that a membership drive will be launched im-
"We want to bring large numbers of our people to Zionism,
particularly now when the unity of the Jewish people is paramount,"
he asserted.
Angry Debate Marks Begin's
Official Assumption of Office
government of Prime Minister
Menachem Begin took the oath of
office in the early hours of the
morning after nine hours of
angry, often bitter debate in the
Knesset which emphasized the
sharp cleavage between the new
regime and its parliamentary
opposition. Begin won the vote of
confidence he had asked for in
his inaugural speech to the
Knesset as Prime Minister.
But his 63-53 margin was
strictly along party lines. Voting
for the government were Likud,
the National Religious Party
(NRP) and Aguda bloc, Moshe
Dayan and Samuel Flatto-
by the Labor Alignment, the
Democratic Movement for
Change (DMC). the Sheli and
Rakah factions and the one-
member factions of Gideon
Hauser of the Independent
Liberal Party and Shulamit Aloni
of the Civil Rights Party. Four
MKs were absent.
The debate was broadcast live
on television. Shimon Peres,
leader of the Labor Alignment,
led the attack on the Begin
coalition. He scored Likud for
making controversial concessions
to the religious bloc to an extent
unknown in Israel before.
He said the agreements under
which the NRP and the Aguda
joined the coalition "gives cause
for great concern."
BEGIN HAS conceded to his
coalition partners "many
demands which have many grave
implications" for our national
life, Peres declared. He accused
Begin of handing over to his
religious partners conduct of
State affairs "according to their
particular version of a rabbinic
Referred to the more emotional
portions of Begin's speech, Peres
reminded the new Premier that
"we are not declaring here the
independence of the State of
Israel. You seem to forget, Begin,
that this was done over 29 years
ago and not by your party."
There was a good deal of
heckling from both the gover-
nment and opposition sides of the
chamber during the prolonged
debate. But a storm erupted
when the new Foreign Minister,
Moshe Dayan, mounted the
DAYAN, the last speaker
before the voting, had remained
in an anteroom most of the night
and did not hear the attacks on
him by many of his former Labor
Alignment colleagues. As he
began to speak he was drowned
out by catcalls and shouts from
the Labor Alignment benches
demanding that he return the
Knesset seat to which he was
elected on the Labor ticket.
When the Speaker finally
restored order, Dayan said the
new government differed from its
predecessor on foreign policy
matter on only one issueits
objection to the participation of
the West Bank.
"If the Arabs ever propose a
participation we could always

on total withdrawal," the new
Foreign Minister said.

Christian" directories, and who
went to the convention with
Charles Wittenstein, the ADL's
southern counsel in Atlanta to
alert Southern Presbyterians to
plans for the new directories.
The Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith said it was
"deeply gratified" by the "forth-
right denunciation" of the
Christian Yellow Pages and
similar "buy Christian" direc-
tories, which was expressed by
the General Assembly of the
Presbyterian Church in the
United States.
Following Wittenstein's
testimony, the governing body of
the Southern Presbyterians
adopted a resolution calling upon
all its church units and individual
members to "neither patronize
these directories by subscription,
nor purchase them for the
purpose of trade with those listed
It also forwarded the
statement to leaders of other
church groups for similar action.
IN HAILING the resolution,
Arnold Forster, ADL's associate
director and general counsel in
New York, noted that the League
was preparing a California law-
suit against the Modesto-based
CYP on grounds that its policy of
requiring advertisers to pledge
they are "born again" Christians
was in violation of that state's

said that such directories are
"not only divisive among
Christians, but. ..especially
discriminatory in relation to the
Jewish community." It went on
to note "the injury inflicted upon
interfaith relationships" and on
the principle of free enterprise.

Mordecai promoted these ideas
on his frequent trips to Pen-
sacola, Fla., where he marketed
the oil of hickory nuts which the
Indians helped him to gather.
But the most persuasive ex-
ponent of a Hebraic strain among
the Indians of Florida was
George Catlin, the itinerant
CATLIN studied 48 tribes,
among them the Seminoles and
the Creeks, and painted several
portraits of the Osceola. "I
believe with many others," he
wrote in his classic collection of
notes and letters, "that they have
Jewish blood in their veins,
although I would not assert, as
some have undertaken to prove,
that they are Jews."
Catlin listed a number of
similarities: (1) the Hebrews had
one Supreme and Everlasting
God and the Indians a single
Great Spirit; (2) both had a
sanctum sanctorum as a holy
place where women were for-
bidden; (31 both had priests and
prophets; and (4) both believed .
they were the chosen people of '
the Almighty.
In the early 18th century,
Moses Elias Levy began nego-
tiations for the purchase of land
in Florida as a settlement for the
downtrodden people of the
Jewish faith.
"WITH unusual vision," wrote
Leon Huhner in the Florida
Historical Quarterly, "Levy
realized the wonderful
possibilities of Florida, and with
the ardor of Spanish adventurers
of old, he dreamed of a brilliant
future for so promising a
The path Levy traveled to this
point was a strange one. He was
born in a palace at Mogador,
Morocco, where his father, of
Portuguese Jewish ancestry, was
grand vizier to the Sultan.
Palace intrigue following the
ruler's death made the Levy
family exiles. Young Levy wound
up in the West Indies and became
rich as a merchant and contractor
of the Spanish forces in Cuba.
But. as author Huhner pointed
out, his dream of a Jewish colony
in the New World gave him no
HE therefore sailed to England
to promote the idea; he contacted
English leaders, advertised in
European newspapers for Jewish
colonists, and even wrote articles
extolling Florida. To prepare for
the Jewish exodus from troubled
Europe, Moses Elias Levy
became one of the largest
property owners in the Florida
Included in his acquisitions
were 36,000 acres close to the
Arrendonda Grant which
stretched "four leagues to each
wind" across the waist of North
Central Florida. He bought
another 52,000 acres, then added
a tract on Alligator Creek,
agreeing to pay for this only if
the United States took over
Florida from Spain.

nephew, "wants to establish here
a colony of Israelites, provided he

willing to brave the wild frontier
in Florida to fill Moses Elias

forced to accept colonists with

Is Politically Motivated
W ASHINGTON (JTA) -Continuing "consideration" by
the U.S. government whether to allow Israel to buy two Boeing
747 jumbo jet passenger planes for its El Al Airline from U.S.
aid fund brought the spectre of political pressure again into
Israeli-American relations.
The State Department however denies the delay is politically

Knesset elections were led to believe their request would be

Israelis claim the State Department and American Airlines

Trattner said last week that senior Israeli officials on a visit to
Washington in April did ask to use $90 million of its allocation
of $735 million in the U.S. fiscal 1977 economic supporting
assistance program to buy the two aircraft.
"While the "sale is still being considered" Trattner said, use of
aid money for acquiring commercial aircraft "is not part of the
traditional aid program." The aid officials, he claimed, had told
that Israelis that is was "unlikely" the request would be ap-

continuing consideration is that the "question involves the
possible contravention of informal international agreements on

Wiesenthal said: "This is our
guilt, that when somebody hears

it was Jews.
"There were not only Jews. It
was Frenchmen, it was Dutch
people, it was Russians, it was

LONDON (JTA)-Israel's
Ambassador to Britain,
Avraham Kidron, denounced as
"dastardly" a lengthy report
published in the Sunday Times
alleging that Israeli interrogators
rountinely maltreat and
frequently torture Arab prisoners
on the West Bank, Gaza and in
Israeli military camps and in-
telligence centers.
Kidron said that two months
ago the Israel government had
offered to conduct a full inquiry
into the allegations if the
newspaper supplied it with
details of the torture charges and
the names of the prisoners who
claimed such treatment. The
Sunday Times refused "under the
assumption that facts inly
confuse the issue," Kidron said.

The Sunday Times' ac-
cusations were contained in a
heavily documented four-page
report based on a five month
investigation by the newspaper's
"insight team" into Israeli
occupation practices on the West
Bank and Gaza String.
It charged that Israeli security
officials subjected the prisoners
to electric shock, prolonged
beatings, sexual assault and
confinement in tiny cupboards
with concrete spikes set on the
THE PAPER called for an
international inquiry and urged
Israel to cease the alleged
practices. The report included
categorical denials of previous
torture allegation by Gabriel
Padon, the Israel Press Attache,
who said on a recent BBC
broadcast that Israel was a
country ruled by law.
According to the report, titled
"Israel and Torture," torture
occurs in at least six centers: At
the prisons in Nabhis, Ramallah,
Hebron and Gaza; at the Russian
Compound in Jerusalem; and at a
special Military Intelligence
Center believed to be at the
Sarafand military base. The
Times said another such camp
may exist near Gaza.
All of Israel's security services
.are alleged to be implicated.
There are the Shin Bet, the
military intelligence, the border
police, and Latom, Israel's
department for special missions.
