NEW YORK (JTA) At the con-
clusion of a two-week official visit to the
United States as a special emissary of
Prime Minister Menachem Begin, Labor
MK Abba Eban said that "it is quite
clear that there are very sharp diver-
gences" between Israel and the United
States on how to resolve the Arab-Israeli
He characterized the present
American!sraeli relations as "delicate"
and warned that "If the Palestine
Liberation Organization gives America
the impression it is changing its attitude
(on UN Security Council Resolution 242)
the present harmony between America
and Israel will no longer prevail."
IN A SPECIAL interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, the former
Foreign Minister, who during his visit
met with Administration officials,
members of Congress and editors of
major newspapers, said that there is a

V Service Officer Uhr
Begin New Duties Here
With the new Jewish
year just 10 days away, the
Jewish Federation and its
United Jewish Appeal cam-
paign were clearing the
decks for what president
Jacob Brodzki predicted
would be "the most active,
energetic and fruitful year"
in the Federation's 10-year
Rosh Hashanah will
usher in the Federation's
10th year of service to the
Jewish and general com-
munities. Brodzki termed
the anniversary year as
marking completion of a
"decade of dedicated
service to Israel, the Fort
Lauderdale Jewish com-
munity, and the com-
munity at-large."
PLANS FOR the year ahead
have been virtually completed,
with a full range of committees
set to take the field and a number
of major projects already in ad-
vanced states.
Foremost among the Federa-
tion programs is the UJA cam-
paign for the year 5738 (1977-78).
Announcement of the person who
will serve as campaign general
chairman will be made just
following Yom Kippur. In the
meantime, efforts are going
forward on several fronts for an
early start to campaigning, even
as efforts continue to bring in
cash on pledges to the 1977 drive.
Sharing equal priority with the
cash effort, which is under the
chairmanship of Federation
treasurer John Strong, is for-
mation of the Fort Lauderdale
UJA Mission to Israel.
Membership on the Mission
already exceeds the size of
previous Fort Lauderdale
missions to Israel, with the group
expected to number close to 100
men and women Charles Locke
of Woodlands is serving as
Mission chairman. An orien-
tation meeting Tuesday evening,

JERUSALEM (JTA) Sources close to
Prime Minister Menachem Begin profess them-
selves delighted with the tenor of a three-page
personal letter to the Prime Minister from Presi-
dent Carter delivered by U.S. Ambassador
Samuel Lewis.
"A real love letter" was how one top source de-
scribed the missive.
The source said Carter reiterated in the firmest
and warmest tones his commitment to Israel's
security, and his personal manner of address to
Begin gratifyingry bore out Begin's own repeated
claim that the two men had established a real
BUT OFFICIAL sources were reticent as to
the political content of the letter. Observers
believed it dealt in part at least with the situation
in southern Lebanon which has taken a turn for
the worse in recent days. The fact that Damascus
announced yesterday that President Hafez Assad
of Syria had also received a letter from Carter
ana also aeciined to disclose its contents
seemed to confirm the guesss that Carter was
appealing to both leaders to act with restraint and
to restrain the warring parties in south Lebanon.
Begin became the first Israeli leader to
acknowledge publicly that Israel extends direct
military aid to the Lebanese Christians in then-
war with the Palestine Liberation Organization
and leftist Moslems.
Begin told an Israel Bonds conference in Jeru-
salem that Israeli artillery fires at Moslem guns
when they open up on the beleaguered Christian
villages in the border region. The Prime Minister
said that without Israeli aid the Christians would
have been massacred.

jtrtity of California v.
I major test case on the
issue of whether race may be con-
sidered in university admission
LAST year the Supreme Court
of California ruled 6 to 1 that the
admissions policy of the Univer-
sity of California Medical School
at Davis violated the equal
protections clause of the 14th
Amendment through a special
admissions program that allotted
16 out of 100 places on the basis
of race. The University appealed
to the Supreme Court, which will
hear arguments in the case
during its October term.
Signing the brief were:
American Jewish Committee,
American Jewish Congress,
Hellenic Bar Association of
Illinois, Italian-American Foun-
dation, Polish American Affairs
Council, Polish American
Educators Association, Uk-
rainian Congress Committee of
America (Chicago Division) and
Unico National.
"We submit this brief," the
eight organizations said,
"because we believe that our
system of constitutional liberties
would be gravely undermined if
the law were to give sanction to

making process of governmental
iigencies and because we believe

P California "would sacrifice the
basic principles of racial equality
* for expediency and snort term
b advantage." the brief said.
' adding that the philosophy of
racial quotas was "factually.
educationally and psycholo-
gically unsound, legally and con-
. stitutionally erroneous and pro-
m found!y jmg4ng to the fabric of
American society."
While rejecting the criterion of
race and the use of racial quotas,
the organizations stressed the
need for intensified efforts to
recruit disadvantaged students
and to help them "in overcoming
cultural or economic handicaps.
thereby expanding the educa-
tional opportunities of our
nation's historically deprived
minorities, among others."
Universities should also
provide "compensator)- educa-
tional preparation, both prior to
admission and during school
attendance, for those whose
backgrounds have handicapped
them scholasticalry... to enable
them to take full advantage of
the legal requirements of equal
treatment." according to the
BUT SUCH assistance should
be granted on the basis of in-
dividual disadvantage not
race, the organizations said.
In their brief, the eight or-
ganizations cited with approval
the majority decision of the
California Supreme Court that
medical school admission need
not be based solely on academic
teat scores. In the Court's words:
"We observe and em-
phasize... that the University is
not required to choose between a
racially neutral admission stan-
dard applied strictly according to
grade point averages and test
scores, and a standard which
accords preferences to minorities
because of their race...
WHILE minority applicants
may have lower grade point aver-
ages and teat scores than others,
we are aware of no rule of law
which requires the University to
accord determinative weight in
admissions to these quantitative
To avoid the "false dicho-
tomy" between absolute reliance
on numerical scores on the one
hand and racial preference on the
other, the brief declared:
"Schools may and. we think,
should evaluate' both grades and
teat scores in the light of a can-
didate's background: whether he
came from a culturally im-
poverished home: the nature and
quality of the schools attended:
whether family circumstances
required work while attending
school: whether be... demon-
strated concern and interest in
the broader community by
pobtkal activity or volunteer
work among the sick or under-
privileged: and whether he had
manifested leadership, industry,
perseverance, self-discipline and
intense motivation.
-BECAUSE grades and test
scores alone may not measure the
true potentialities of such can-
didates." the brief added,
"weight should be given to the
reality that some disadvantaged
candidates have demonstrated
the capability of surmounting
handicaps, whether such han-
dicaps were occasioned by dis-
crimination, poverty, chronic
illness or other factors.
"All of these factors may con-
stitutionally and legitimately be
considered by the school." the
brief declared, adding:
"But what the school may not
do. we submit, is to classify
applicants for admission on the
basis of race or ethicity and so
structure its selection process as
to admit an essentially predeter-
mined proportion of members of
certain groups."
THE BRIEF said further that
if the medical school "were to
conclude that the medical profes-
sion as presently composed fails
to serve the disadvantaged
elements in society, then it could
also consider whether applicants
for admission, irrespective of race
or ethnicity, manifest a genuine
commitment to serve those
groups currently lacking
adequate services.
"Indeed, it could expressly
offer special consideration in the
admissions process to those who
enter into a binding commitment
to serve for a specified period in
an urban ghetto. Barrio or an
Indian reservation." the brief

The Anti- Defamation League

While there is no significant
difference between the briefs of
the ADL on the one hand and the
AJCommittee AJCongress on

somewhat harder line on the issue
of affirmative action, holding
that "a proper decision by the

Declaring that the Constitu-

after the Supreme Court nas
made dear that experimentation
with racially discriminatory
programs is impermissible, will
there be impetus to develop

gtated that the school will have a

Founded in 1976 by a group of

education and dissatisfied with
the prevailing alternatives in the
community, the school has grown
rapidly. It now has a program
from kindergarten through sixth

Seventh and eighth grade over
the coming two years.

shayahu Tadmor, the new direc-
tor of Israel Aliyah Center ac-
tivities in North America, ap-
proaches his position with the
same cautious optimism and
concern for detail that helped him
rise through the ranks of the
Israel Defense Forces to the rank
of Colonel.
A professional educator with a
real sense of sociology, Tadmor
recognizes that "many traumatic
decisions are made along the road
to Aliyah" and feels that the
"Israel Aliyah Center must be
equipped to assist in that
decision-making process by not
only offering accurate infor-
mation, but, in very human
terms, helping people through
the trouble spots."
TADMOR has plans for some
changes in the Aliyah Center but
won't say whether he feels they
will increase the Aliyah from
North America. "Every execu-
tive has his own philosophy of
management. Mine is results-
oriented. There is no simple
formula to solve this problem. It
is deeply entwined within the

Editor's Corner
Carter 'Love Note'
It is fascinating to speculate on the supposed "love
note" that President Carter sent Prime Minister Begin the
other day. Judging by the President's adamant stand on
the territories, and the increasingly vocal position he is
taking in hewing to the spirit if not the letter of UN Res.
242. it would seem that both feeders are about as far apart
as 180 degrees could get them on any issue. And so. the so-
called "love letter" seems strange, indeed.
And yet. perhaps not so strange, not if we understand
the import of a recent letter to us from U.S. Rep. William
Lehman in which Lehman assured us that "the Begin-
Carter talks (in Washington) went very well." Lehman
was at subsequent sessions with Prime Minister Begin at
Blair House, and he ought to know.
According to Rep. Lehman. "Begin said that, unlike
the previous administration, there has been no pressure
whatsoever from Carter for territorial concessions."
Someone, somewhere is getting their signals crossed
unless it is that the President says one thing to the
Prime Minister (as presumably in his "love note") and
another thing to the work! at large.
If this is a correct assumption if Rep. Lehman's
view of the Carter-Begin meetings prevails in the end
then there are some fairly logical explanations for this.
Much Less Confusing
One is Rep. Lehman's report of Begin's admonition to
President Carter that "the flow of military assistance
between Israel and the U.S. is very much a two-way
Ijthmnn explains this with this assertion that the
Begin statement "reconfirmed information I have learned
as a member of the National security Task Force of the
House Budget Committee. The lessons drawn from Is-
rael's experiences and sacrifices in the Yom Kippur War-
... have resulted in major changes in America's military
technology, weapons and tactics."
The other is President Carter's clear concern for the
Christian settlements in Lebanon and Israel's life-saving
role in helping these settlements defend themselves. In
Lehman's view, the President is very much concerned
about this and very impressed with Israel's role.
Perhaps this is why the Administration declared that
there is no violation in Israel's supplying of U.S. arms to
the Lebanese Christians.
The welter of confusing statement emerging from the
Middle East scene, if we read Rep. Lehman's letter care-
fully, becomes much less confusing than it seems.

.American policy makers were
"unusually sensitive to Jewish
opinion" But he warned that in
the absence of any progress
toward ruling the diplomatic
vacuum, the Arab states may
choose the military option. This
would require, be said, a "second
hue of defense, a contingency'
plan." if the gap between the
present positions of Israel and
the Arab states proves too great.
EBAN expressed the opinion
that a 'failed peace conference at
Geneva" could be worse than a
peace conference that does not
take place. He said Israel was
"wise" to insist on a full peace
treaty as the "ultimate des-
tination" of Arab-Israeli
negotiation but he indicated that
there was a greater likelihood of
winning agreement on steps
toward that destination than on
the final outcome.
Eban cautioned against ex-
pecting that Israel would be
"rescued" by divisions within the
Arab wrold. He also rejected
Arab efforts to "blow up" the
significance of the recent Knesset
action in legalizing the three

mobilized in support of Israel's

Brightening the Twilight Tears
Of the Elderly, Infirm in Israel
JERUSALEM-To serve the aged in
Israel as well as we can "this is how Shmuel
Prodovsky, director of the Talpiot-Malben
Home for the Aged, located in south-east
3 Jerusalem, sums up his job.
When the home was founded by the
American Jewish Joint Distribution Com-
_ nut tee (JDC) in 1962. it was designed ex-
clusively for aged immigrants. The 1974.
JDC opened it to all infirm aged, not only
immigrants. In keeping with its long
landing policy of innovating projects with a
view to later handing over control to a
governmental body. JDC-Israel transferred
administrative control of the home to the
focal authorities in January 1976. with JDC
continuing to contribute to its operating
THE AVERAGE age of people entering
the home is over 80. most of them requiring
special care. The ratio of staff to patients is
TH:lft Considering the alternative job
possibilities, together with the built-in
difficulties of the work, it is dear that the
nurses and supporting staff at the home are
there for more than just a salary. The visitor
senses a strong atmosphere of love and a
sense of caring.
"Since most of the patients are invalids or
semi-invalids, it usually means that the staff
must bathe the aged, dress them, in some
cases feed them, and assist them with their
bodily functions. Our staff is extremely loyal,
and hard working." notes Prodovsky. We
need more people of this high caliber We are
understaffed. We have vacancies for five
more nurses.but that is not our problem
alone: there is a shortage of qualified nurses
all over the country
JDC provides IL 600.000 (about S60.000)
of the yearly five million pound 1 $500,000'
budget required by the Home. With the
exception of one couple, all residents are
single, most of them originating from North
Africa and Iran. All 65 beds are occupied10
by men. and 65 by womenand there is a
waiting list of 90 people who represent the
most urgent cases as determined by a
Ministry of Health screening and selection
"SINCE OUR conversion in 1974. we have
had an average replacement of 12-15 resi-
dents a year When a parson is admitted, it is
usually because no other Home is prepared to
accept someone with a physical dtsabtht>
Even though the home is designed for the
chronically handicapped, social con-
siderations play a role in the criteria for
admission. According to Prodovsky. half the
patients who come to the home are physically
infirm. Social adjustment problems account
for the other half.
In many cases the children of residents
don't have enough money to support their
invalid parents, or do not have time to
provide adequate care. Most of the children
have large families and low incomes.
"WE ARE the only home in Jerusalem
that admits infirm aged." emphasizes
Prodovsky. "Most won't be bothered caring
for the handicapped, and when a healthy
resident becomes infirm he is often asked to
leave. That doesn't happen here."
For many residents, particularly those
whose mobility ia limited, the biggest pro-
blem is the passing of time. For 86-year-old
Marian Kau. a retired dentist who arrived in
Israel this year from Russia, it is the absence
of her son that she misses most. For another
woman invalid, time is just a waiting game.
Suffering from heart disease, she is sure she
is going to diethis week or nextand
according to Prodovsky. feels extremely
depressed. "She retains her mental
facilities." he says. "She's able to see and
read the various medications she takes, and
understands what they are for. We try to
cheer her up but it's difficult."
JDC belived that institutional!ration in a
borne should be a last resort, and supports a
wide range of community services to enable
the elderly to remain in their communities.
These services include nursing care, periodic
medical check ups. home care, "meals on
heels." sheltered housing, employment.
social and cultural activities in community
centers, etc.
IN 1969. in cooperation with the Govern
ment of Israel, it established ESHEL. the
Association for the Planning and
Development of Services for the Aged which
is now engaged in the development of a
network of homes for the aged, the establish-
ment of geriatric wards in general hospitals,
the expansion of community services, and
the training of personnel in many fields
relating to the aged
JDC-supported homes, geriatric wards and
services care for more than 10.000 elderly in

Federation and Welfare Funds through the
National United Jewish .Appeal.

influence wherever possible.
The news surfaced even as the
Department of State was
deploring Prime Minister Begins
legalization of three existing
Jewish settlements in the West
Bank as "an obstacle to peace."
However, the military buildup
and the past readiness of Arab
states to transfer arms and in-
stitute naval blockades would
seem to be a more dangerous
obstacle to peace than the
presence of some 6,000 Jewish
settlers in the 70 settlements
beyond the 1967 lines.

the Jewish settlements, which
means eligibility for loans and
mail deliveries, disconcerted

Arabs a new pretext for avoiding

It speculated that Begins

U.S., Israeli Views Differ
Continued from
substance as far as relations between the
United States and Israel are concerned.
"The atmosphere of relations is warm
and cordial," Eban observed. "There
seems to be a desire to avoid any im-
pression of a rift with Israel. But when
we examine the positions of Israel and
the United States on substance, it is
quite clear that there are very sharp
divergences. The media seems to be more
aware, more sensitive to these diver-
gences than Administration officials."
Eban said that the Palestinian issue
and PLO representation in peace talks
are the major points of division between
Israel and the United States.
"AMERICANS say that America has
a tradition of talking to its enemies-
. ..That is the chief argument that we
(Israel) have not overcome, that even if a
government or organization is violently
hostile, Americans in the past have been
talking to it. They (the U.S.) don't
always appreciate the distinction that
the Americans did not speak to an or-
ganization that calls for the liquidation
of the United States..."
Eban added that he does not advocate
a change of Israel's position toward the
PLO, but he said the Israeli position is
not "well understood" in America and
suggested increased Israeli efforts to
explain its positions to the American
Asked if he envisioned a rift between
Israel and the United States in the event
the PLO will accept Resolution 242,
Eban replied: "So long as the PLO holds
its present position, there is harmony
between the United States and Israel.
The United States will not ask Israel to
talk to the PLO unless there is a change
in the PLO attitude. But if the PLO does
give America the impression it is
changing its attitude, the present har-
mony between America and Israel will no
longer prevail."
EBAN SAID in that case "The United
States would say that it is more impor-
tant to embark on a negotiation than to
make an issue about representation and
participation (in peace talks)..." At this
point he added that in all his conver-
sations here in the last two weeks he
pointed out that "on the question of
refusing to negotiate with the PLO, the
present Israeli government and the
Labor Alignment are united."
Responding to a recent report that the
French government is planning to intro-
duce a revised Resolution 242 to accom-
modate Palestinian demands, the former
UN Ambassador said he does not believe
such a resolution could be passed in the
Security Council. He also said he does
not think the United States will support
such a move.
As to the role of the Soviet Union in
the Mideast and relations with Israel,
Eban said: "I don't belive the Soviet
Union has changed its position since
(Foreign Minister Andrei) Gromyko told
me in 1973 that the resumption of
relations (with Israel) depends on impor-
tant progress in the Geneva conference.
He did not define what 'important
progress' meant, but it was obvious that
the disengagement agreements so far
concluded were not sufficient. At the
moment the negotiation is by general
consent focussed on Washington. There
is no substitute for the United States in
the mediation role."

Women In Distress, a United

gency shelter for Women in need,
has a new home thanks to
First Federal of Broward.
Recently the Women in
Distress headquarters, located in
northwest Fort Lauderdale was
sold and the staff scrambled to
find temporary housing for them-
selves and the 13 women they are
currently providing shelter.
FIRST Federal came through
with an almost new duplex ac-
quired through a recent fore-
closure. The house is being rented
to Women in Distress for one
dollar a year.
"People all over Broward have
been so helpful. Private homes
have called offering us temporary
rooms for the women while we
were searching. The Red Cross
and the Salvation Army, United
Way family agency members,
helped us move along with some
maintenance men who volun-
teered their services from First
Federal," said Marv Bymel,

executive director of Women in
"This move may have been a
blessing in disguise because our

shelter to battered wives and
children. The client increase
would crowd things too much at

new house can provide shelter for
25 women and children, she

are over, at least until next year
when their search will be on again
for another house and another
lease. "I don't want to even think
about that now," said Bymel,
"I'm just so grateful to First
Federal for everything they have
done. Our main dream is that
someday we'll find a house or old
hotel our limited budget will
allow us to purchase for per-
manent shelter." Women in

funded by the United Way of

Kuthie Can Count
JERUSALEM Ruthie can count up to
five. Generally speaking, that's no special
achievement. These days, almost any two-
year-old can count to five or even ten, and
sometimes twenty. But Ruthie isn't two
years old. Ruthie is a grown woman. She is
mentally retarded.
Until recently, Ruthie was little more than
a statistic; a minute factor in the three
percent of mentally retarded in Israel's total
population. Today, Ruthie is living proof
that with the right kind of education and en-
couragement, the mentally retarded can
progress, and can even be taught to make
themselves useful in society.
RUTHIE IS one of 20 people currently in
the care of MAGEN, a Jerusalem-based
voluntary society providing day care center
residence and development training for men-
tally retarded adults whose parents because
of age, health or other reasons can no longer
care for them at home; or whose presence at
home is detrimental to the cohesion of the
family unit.
MAGEN (the Hebrew word for Shield) was
established in 1972. Its founding members
were associated with another organization
working for and with the mentally retarded;
but it was not concerned with the problem of
caring for severely handicapped orphaned
adults. It was a responsibility which these
bodies refused to accept.
The new group did not waste time. It im-
mediately began negotiations with the
Ministry for Social Welfare, the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC)
and the Jerusalem Municipality. It was
initially concerned with securing funds for a
proposed home for the mentally retarded and
with obtaining a list of addresses of mentally
retarded people who were not accommodated
in suitable environments.
IRENE GASTER, 80-year-old pioneer of
work with the mentally retarded in Israel,
collected addresses, and together with other
board members of MAGEN, went to visit the
families in order to determine who most
needed the kind of home which MAGEN en-
The enthusiasm of MAGEN's group of
workers was not matched by the social
welfare authorities. Mrs. Michaelis-Stern,
MAGEN chairlady, faced the stone wall of
bureaucracy until she eventually managed to
secure an appointment with the Minister of
Social Welfare. He promised support: if
MAGEN could find suitable premises, the
Ministry would underwrite half the coat.
When she had collected sufficient funds for
half a house, she again approached the
Ministry of Welfare, but the Ministry was
unable to fulfill its commitments.
RATHER THAN shelve the project,
MAGEN decided that rented premises would
be better than no premises at all. Eventually
a place was found in Jerusalem's German
Colony. MAGEN's board members went
from house to house explaining their objec-
tives. People who had started out being
unsympathetic to MAGEN's cause, were
won over.
The MAGEN Irene Gaater Hostel offi-
cially opened its doors in June, 1976. Con-
ceived originally as a day care center,
MAGEN, a few'months ago, began taking in
women residents. The Israel Government.
the Jerusalem Municipality, the JDC and
private contributors enable MAGEN to meet
its operating costs. A Jewish Foundation
(which prefers to remain anonymous)
provided a special grant for equipment.
Funds and furniture were received as gifts
from other sources and some furniture was
purchased second hand.
After they had secured a home for
MAGEN, the organizers faced yet another
problem: there were not enough qualified
people in Israel who have been trained to
work with the mentally retarded. MAGEN
was fortunate to obtain the services of Paula
Susswein, a recent olah from America, who
became MAGEN's first director. She was
trained in social work at the Karen Horney
Psychiatric Clinic and received her master's
degree in Social Work at Hunter College in
New York before moving permanently to
Israel shortly after the death of her husband.
WHEN MRS. Susswein spoke about her
charges it was difficult to remember that she
was talking about people aged 18-42. "Moshe
is very gregarious and outgoing. Gizella is
much more knowledgeable than she lets on.
You can ask her the same question ten times
and she will say that she doesn't know the
answer; but when you ask again, she knows
it perfectly. Ruthie can count up to five. She
can recognize figures, but she can't write.
Chava can also count from one to five. She
can write, and she is already learning how to
form sentences. Esther is making excellent
Warshaw, a social worker, explains how
the wards are taught to wash themselves, to
dance, to peel vegetables, to clean floors, to
appreciate the value of money. The resigned
expressions on the faces of the parents give
way to hope. Their children have been
rejected by almost every other institution for
the mentally retarded, as "hopeless." Any
progress they make, however slow, is little
short of a miracle.
To Paula Susswein and her staff of eight, it
is a continuing challenge. "We have a daily
class to help people develop communication
abilities. People who could barely say a word,
can now form whole sentences. We also have
cooking and handicrafts classes."
PERHAPS more important than the
classes is the effort which is being made to
give people an appreciation of their own
worth. "They scrub the whole building from
floor to ceiling for which they get a salary
every week" says Mrs. Susswein "They are
all aware," says Mrs. Susswein, "that they
are different, retarded and special. But all of
them feel free here. Perhaps that is why they
Ruthie can count, but more important,
Ruthie and others like her, do count.
In addition to its support of programs for
the handicapped, the American Jewish Joint
Distribution Committee in its Israel program
initiates, develops and supports, in coopera-
tion with local agencies, a wide range of
health, educational and social services for the
aged and community centers, the disadvan-
taged and the training of professional per-
sonnel. The JDC receives the bulk of its
funds from Jewish Federations and Welfare
Funds through the National United Jewish
Appeal. The National UJA is the major
beneficiary of funds raised by the UJA of the

3ND0N (JTA) For the
time, a British Prime
lister has agreed to adress the
pd of Deputies of British
James Callaghan will
bar at a special session of the
W on Oct. 23 to mark the
anniversary of the Balfour
Paration in which Britain
ertook to support the Jewish
claim to a national home in
Palestine. It is also believed to be
the first time that an incumbent
British Prime Minister has
agreed to appear on a public
platform to commemorate an
event which still stirs anger in
the Arab world.
Callaghan agreed to adress the
community in response to a
personal invitation from Lord
Fisher of Camden, president of
the Board, who will preside at the
Greville Janner, vice president
of the Board and a Labor Party
MP, said that by accepting the
invitation, the Prime Minister
would be "paying a compliment
of the highest order" to the
community and to the State of
Israel. The last occasion on which
Callaghan addressed a Jewish
gathering was last year when he
appeared at a Labor Friends of
Israel dinner in South Wales to
honor Gideon Rafael, then the
Israeli Ambassador to Britain.
Callaghan s decision to attend
the Balfour Declaration event is
also noteworthy because, at past
Balfour anniversary celebrations,
in Britain and in Israel, British
governments have usually
preferred to be represented by
second-rank ministers.
It is also significant since there
are considerable differences
between Britain and Israel over
the notion of a "Palestinian Arab
homeland" which the British
government supported at the
recent London summit meeting
of the nine European Economic
Community nations. Some
observers here are speculating
that Callaghan may use the
occasion to seek Anglo-Jewry's
understanding for this new
Palestinian policy despite its
unpopularity in Israel. The Board
of Deputies has itself voiced its
dismay at this policy.
A separate commemoration of
the Balfour Declaration an-
niversary will be staged by the
Zionist Federation, to which the
original historic document was
addressed. It will hold a dinner to
be addressed by leaders of all
three British political parties.

HE DECLARED that there
are about 10,000 transsexuals in
the United States, persons born
with the anatomy of one sex but
who have an identification with
the other sex. He said it was
estimated that some 1,500 trans-
sexuals have changed their sex
by surgical means.
Dr. Bleich cited Leviticus
22:24 in support of his con-
tention: "And that which is
mauled or crushed or torn or cut
you shall not offer to the Lord,
nor should you do this in your
land." He declared this was an
explicit biblical prohibition of
sex-change operations.
He also noted arguments by
rabbinic scholars who interpret
as referring to any action
uniquely identified with the
opposite sex, the commandment:
"A woman shall not wear that
which pertains to a man, nor shall
a man put on a woman's gar-
DR. BLEICH added that once
such a sexual transformation has
taken place, a host of practical
halachic questions arise, hinging
on "the crucial conceptual
problem of whether or not a
change of sex has indeed occurred
from the point of view" of Jewish
Law. He cited as the most ob-
vious questions those involving
marriage, divorce and the per-
formance of religious obligations.
He also declared that while
Judaism does not sanction
surgical reversion of sex, trans-
sexualism -is considered a
disorder "which should receive
the fullest measure of medical
and psychiatric treatment
consistent with Halacha."
He asserted that transsexuals
should be encouraged "to un-
dergo treatment to correct en-
docrine imbalance, where
medically indicated, and to seek
psychiatric guiflance to alleviate
the grave emotional problems
which are frequently associated
with this tragic condition."

German machine gun nest in France which had been holding up
a major American advance. U.S. Sen. Dick Stone, who pinned
the medal on Adelstein, told him "Sometimes the bureaucracy

store's entrances.
"It was the most successful business day for a
single store that Fort Lauderdale has ever seen out-
side the Thanksgiving/Christmas shopping
That's the way the executives of Richards
Department Store describe the WECARE Day that
was held Thursday, Aug. 7, at their Lauderhill Mall
store for the benefit of the Jewish Federation.
OFFICERS OF both the Federation and its
WECARE program share the enthusiasm of the
Richards' executives. Federation President Jacob
Brodzki summed it in two words. "Everyone bene-
fitted," he said. Roy A. Hamilton, manager of
Richards at the Lauderhil1 Mall, in a letter to
WECARE General Chairman Rovi Faber, put it this
way: "This ambitious occasion definitely proved
that big business and charitable organizations such
as yours should marry if the end result is a better
community relationship."
At last count, here's how the day wound up:
Both Richards and its many merchant neigh-
bors at the Lauderhill Mall had the largest crowds
they have ever experienced outside the December
season, with upwards of 50,000 shoppers estimated
to have come into the mall.
RICHARDS HAS turned over a sizeable check
to the Jewish Federation representing 10 percent of
all sales that exceeded the store's normal business
for a Thursday in early August. The store is also
soon to present another check to the Jewish
Federation for every charge account that was ap-
proved by its credit department. The Federation will
receive one dollar for every approved account
Shoppers benefitted because merchandise was
greatly marked down in numerous lines men's,
women's and children's clothing, household items,
cosmetics and so on. Eleven of the day's shoppers
came off especially well with grand prizes. While
Richards reaped a fine prize in the great number of
shoppers who passed through the store many for
the first time there were other businesses that got
a share of the action in the good will they won by
offering a host of other prizes, over 75 in number.
Here's a full list of the grand prize winners and
what they won:
JOHN KERUTIS of Lauderhill. a Las Vegas
weekend for one; Eva Nerlinger of Lauderdale
Lakes, a weekend cruise for two on the Leonardo Da
