When Sadat arrived at the
Knesset he laid a wreath at the
eternal light memorial to fallen
Jewish soldiers everywhere. His
entry into the chamber was
greeted by a trumpet fanfare and
a warm standing ovation by the
assembled Knesset members and
guests.
"Today I announce and declare
that we welcome you, we are
ready to accept you and live with
you under a permanent peace,"
Sadat proclaimed from the
Knesset podium.
Early in his address, the
Egyptian leader stressed that he
did not come to Jerusalem to
negotiate a separate peace
between Israel and Egypt
because a separate peace would
not lead to permanent peace in
the area. He said he did not come
to achieve an agreement to
terminate the state of war bet-
ween the two nations nor does he
seek another disengagement
either in the Sinai, the Golan
Heights, or the West Bank.
"I CAME to you today on
solid ground to shape a new life
and to establish peace. I came
here so that we together can build
a durable peace in the region,"
Sadat declared.
He insisted that there can be
no peace without the Pales-
tinians, that the Palestinian issue
was the crux of the Middle East
conflict and noted pointedly that
the United States, Israel's
greatest friend and ally, the
provider of military, economic
and moral support to Israel "has
accepted the fact that Pales-
tinians are entitled to get their
legitimate rights."
Urging Israel's acceptance of
the right of the Palestinians to
establish their own state, Sadat
declared that Israel had nothing

Begin, Sadat 'Like Each Other'
JERUSALEM (JTA) "I held a personal, warm
talk with President Sadat and I may say that we like each
other. He has a sense of humor and I, too, sometimes
have a sense of humor. We exchanged views. I think a
fitting personal tie has been established between us."
This was Prime Minister Menachem Begins sum-
mation of his first brief session last night with President
Anwar Sadat. The Prime Minister spoke to a radio
reporter.
Looking ahead to the rest of the visit, Begin said:
"We shall take advantage of every opportunity as we have
agreed, in order to hold private, personal talks."
Question: "Beyond this visit as well?" Begin: "I
hope there will be a continuation."

philanthropic fund could claim a charitable
deduction of $10,730, and achieve an annual
spendable return of $1,750 for an effective return of
9.35 percent. The presumption, Faber pointed out, is
that the donor is in the 40 percent income tax and 25
percent capital gains brackets.
The same conditions applying to a woman aged 65
would eam her a charitable deduction of $8,483 and
an annual spendable income of $1,750 for an effective
return of 8.92 percent.
The charitable deductions rise, as do the spen-
dable income returns and, of course, the percentage

noted.

The Jewish Federation's

major gifts all in the class
of $5,000 and over. The giving

Jerusalem, the long-time trea-

year, the acting chairman of
the Jewish Agency for Israel.
Dulzin hailed the Federation
and its UJA campaign, asserting
that Fort Lauderdale was moving
rapidly up among the free world
communities that are "funding
and strengthening the humani-
tarian work of The Jewish

to fear from "a newly born state"
which would need world
assistance and would not be a
threat to anyone.
SADAT declared that for
ending the occupation of Arab
territory and acknowledging the
fundamental rights of the Pales-
tinian people, Israel would
receive a peace agreement recog-
nizing its secure boundaries and
any international guarantees it
chooses to accept. The relations
between Israel and the Arab
countries should be based on the
principle of no resort to force, he
said.
"Israel must live within its
own borders, with its Arab
neighbors, with all the inter-
national guarantees afforded to it
and the other parties," Sadat
asserted.
He deplored that "many
months in which peace could
have been brought have been
wasted over differences and
fruitless discussions on the pro-
cedures to be followed at a recon-
vened Geneva peace conference.''
"IF GOD Almighty has made
it my fate to assume the respon-
sibility on behalf of the Egyptian
people and to share in the fate-
determining possibility of the
Arab nation, the main duty
dictated by this responsibility is
to try by every means to save my
Egyptian people and the entire
Arab nation from the horrors of
new, shocking and destructive
wars," Sadat declared.
He said to accomplish that, he
became convinced that he must
"go to the farthest corners of the
world, even to Jerusalem, to
address the Knesset, the repre-
sentatives of the people, to
acquaint them with all the facts."
Sadat acknowledged that there
were many in the Arab world and
some in Israel who looked upon
his trip to Jerusalem with anger
and suspicion. He said he forgave
them. He referred indirectly to a
charge by Israel's Chief of Staff,
Gen. Mordechai Gur, that his trip
was a cover for war preparations.
He said that was not the case
"We must all rise above all forms
of fanatacism, above all forms of
self-deception and above all,
forms of obsolete theories of
superiority. The most imporant
thing is never to forget that
infallibility is the prerogative of
God," Sadat said.
HE SAID that he has been
asked, ever since arriving in
Israel, what he intends to achieve
by his visit. "I came here without
the intention to achieve some-
thing but to start a new road,"
Sadat said.
Begin, who followed Sadat at
the podium, had warm words for
Sadat's trip.
"The distance between Cairo
and Jerusalem is almost infinite
but President Sadat has crossed
that distance graciously," he
said. He said the trip required
courage and "we, the Jewish
people, kn^w how to appreciate
such courage."
BEGIN stressed, "We do not
believe in might and we have
never put our trust in might in
'our relations with the Arab
countries ... All of us here have
one hope, one desire and one am-
bition to bring peace.
"We ask for a complete and
true peace, a total appeasement
between the Jewish people and
the Arabs," the Israeli leader
said. He recalled that at its birth
Israel was attacked on three
fronts by its neighbors and that
the hand of peace it extended
then and over the years that
followed was rejected. But, he
declared, "We should not drown
ourselves in past memories of the
wars between us. Wehave to
overcome those memories and
care for the future," he said.
Begin observed to Sadat that
"we did not invite you and you
did not come to form a barrier
between Egypt and the other
Arab countries." But, he said,
Egypt and Israel must recognize
that they have to live together
forever and should freely nego-
tiate a peace treaty. "War is
avoidable but peace is unavoid-
able," he said. He proposed that
the first clause of a peace treaty
should deal with the termination
of all states of war.
"LET OUR frontiers be open
for free movement. Let your
people come here and our people
go to you. Our country is open to
the people of Egypt without con-
ditions," Begin said. He also
reiterated his invitations to
President Hafez Assad of Syria
and King Hussein of Jordan to
open negotiations for peace with
Israel. Begin said that he himself
was ready to travel to any Arab
capital to promote good relations
and peace.
Begins speech was interrupted
twice by Communist MK Meir
Wilner. Begin sighed, lapsed into
English and told Sadat, "The
Communist member here
disturbs me but this is the price I
had to pay to convince him not to
disturb you."
Labor Alignment leader
Shimon Peres, who followed
Begin to the Knesset rostrum,
declared that "peace cannot be
achieved without mutual con-
cessions. We will have to concede
things dear to us and the
Egyptians will have to do the
same."
THE ISRAELI opposition
leader said that "some sort of
formula will have to be found to
the problem of Palestinian
identity, but not at the cost of
national security to Israel and
Jordan."
Peres suggested "a kind of fed-
eration between the Palestinians
and Jordanians." He stressed
that "a momentous opportunity
is here and we must all practice
patience and mutual trust."
Peres, who was the former
Defense Minister, said he felt
peace settlements could also be
reached with Jordan and Syria as
I well as Egypt. At the outset,
' Peres said he was not speaking in
the name of the opposition but
for the united people of Israel
who want peace.
SADAT and Begin expressed
optimism today following the
special Knesset session, during
an interview by the political cor-
respondent of Israel Radio.
Asked to describe the talks
with Begin, Sadat said, shortly
after he came out of Begin's work
room in the Knesset, that the real
negotiations haven't started yet.
He said the negotiations would
start tonight.
Sadat was then asked whether
the negotiations would lead to
peace. He responded, "I am
always optimistic." Begin then
joined him and said: "I share the
President's optimism." The two
leaders were then interviewed by
ABC-TV newscaster Barbara
Walters the first-ever inter-
view held with an Israeli and an
Arab statesman sitting side by
side.

men and women with a
sprinkling of students from the
Merkaz Torah High School in the
audience gave him a standing
ovation.
Levine, in her address, de-
scribed the condition of the
American Jewish Community in
terms of what she said were its
credit and debit sides. The com-
munity, she said, "is affluent,
mobile, highly professionalized
(16 to 20 percent of university
professors are Jewish)... and it is
a community that is also aging,
with a zero population growth.
Despite the high surface of af-
fluence, there is a large body of
Jewish poor, especially in the
older cities of the northeast."
In New York City, she pointed
out that 15 percent of the Jews
earn between $3,700 and $4,000
per year.
The greatest single internal or
domestic problem facing Ameri-
can Jews is intermarriage, and
about solving this, she was pes-
simistic. One out of three young
Jews are marrying non-Jews, she
noted, terming this "a disaster
area of the American Jewish
community." A comparison of
Jewish population figures for
1937 and 1977 showed 3.7 percent
50 years ago, as against 2.4 per-
cent today, she pointed out.
That raised the whole question
of Jewishness, or being Jewish,

"We Come To You"
she remarked. "Why should one
be Jewish?" she asked. Can one
be Jewish "without religio-
sity?''She said she would put the
question another way, as follows:
"What will happen when all of
our problems are solved; what
will Jews be, and do, as Jews?"
She told of her own efforts to
search out the meaning of Jew-
ishness, of meeting in lengthy
sessions with rabbinical students
from Orthodox, Conservative and
Reform seminaries in New York.
Often, she recalled, her associates
in the American Jewish Congress
chided her for giving so much
time "to this God stuff when
there were so many critical issues
on the Congress agenda: Israel,
Civil Rights, Women's Rights,
Human Rights, and so on. But
she resisted those who would
have shortened her search for
Jewish meaning, she said.
She told of visiting the famous
Rabbi Bernard Soloveitchik in
Boston, who gave her a four-hour
audience. He told her, she re-
counted, that "the search for God
in Judaism is as important as
finding him."
Speaking emotionally and
rapidly, she told the audience,
"What we're talking about, in the
end, is a Jewish civilization, and
that's what Judaism and Jewish-
ness is."
Hauser Keynotes JDC Meet
Rita E. Hauser, former United
States representative to the
United Nations Commission on
Human Rights and a prominent
attorney and civic leader, was the
principal speaker at the sixty-
third annual meeting of the Joint
Distribution Committee, which

More than 500 Jewish or-
ganizational and communal lead-
ers from all parts of the United
States and Canada, plus a sizable
delegation from overseas coun-
tries took part in the tribute to
Weiler and the installation of
Robinson.
Earlier in the day, about 100
members of the JDC's board of
directors heard reports from of-
ficers and staff members on the
JDC programs that helped over
400,000 Jews in some 26 coun-
tries overseas at a cost of almost
$38 million in 1977. They also ap-
proved a budget and elected of-
ficers for 1978.

Leon Dulzin's Role Earlier this week, the Jewish Federation launched its 1978 UJA campaign at a major gifts dinner in the Wood-mont Country Club, where the principal speaker was Mr. Leon Dulzin, of Jerusalem. Dulzin is Treasurer of The Jewish Agency for Israel, has twice been called on to serve as its Acting Chairman, a post he holds right now, and may well be described as among the top 10 leaders of the State of Israel. No other man is more intimately connected and concerned with issues, matters and programs that are at the heart of Israel's reason for being. These issues and matters have to do not with borders, Palestinians, late model military hardware, and not even with Mr. Sadat. They have to do with things far more humane, fateful, and Jewish. They have to do with the ingathering, redemption and life renewal of all among the Jews who are, variously or together, oppressed, repressed or endanger. Leon Dulzin, as Treasurer and Acting Chairman of the Jewish Agency, is the chief ingatherer, the head redeemer, the number one renewer of Jewish life in Israel. No one man stands more nearly in clanger of being overcome by the avalanche, indeed, the tidal wave of Jewish humanity that will descend upon and engulf Israel, once peace becomes a fact. That moment is not yet, but its time is coming. Messrs. Begin and Sadat are seeing to that. If we know Mr. Dulzin, he'll be the first to say he'd welcome being suffocated by a massive inflow of Jews from such places as the Soviet Union, Romania, Rhodesia, South Africa, Argentina, America, Canada, and from wherever else. The least that will happen, with the coming of peace, is that Mr. Dulzin will have his hands full, as never before. Since the Jews pouring into Israel will be our Jews as well as his, we will have our hands full, too. We will simply have to answer the calls of the UJA, the Jewish Agency, the Joint Distribution Committee and HIAS, as never before. Peace for Israel will mean not less, but a greater need for giving to the Fort Lauderdale UJA. Mr. Dulzin spoke of this. It is in the forefront of his vision of Israel's future. We, as well as the Sadats and Jimmy Carters and other movers and shakers of this world, hold Israel's and Jewry's future in our hands.

By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA> -
Prime Minister Menachem
Begins selection of Eliahu Ben-
Elissar to head the Israeli dele-
gation to the pre-Geneva talks in
Cairo expected to begin Saturday
was seen here as an indication
that Begin intends to keep those
talks under his closest scrutiny.
Ben-Elissar, 45, is director

Office, Israel's No. 1 civil ser-
POLITICAL PROFILE
vant.-He is also a trusted political

Peace Drive Continues
President Sadat is continuing his stunning Middle
East peace diplomacy begun last week with his history-
making visit to Jerusalem.
Obviously, it is not an Arab stand, at least not at the
moment, especially since the other Arab nations, with few
exceptions, show no inclination to be friendly toward
Sadat's diplomacy and especially since the Israelis are
in direct contact with the Egyptian President in their own
initiative to achieve peace in the Middle East.
This means that in all likelihood "non-negotiability"
as an Egyptian, or Arab, by-word is merely a starting
point toward the very negotiation that Sadat has said is
out.
In this regard, Sadat's own reasons for seeking peace
with Israel now are beside the point: his $10 billion debt to
the Russians, his alleged desire to "neutralize" Israel
militarily in the north so that he can undertake a cam-
paign against Libya's Col. Qadaffi to the west, whom
Sadat has repeatedly called a "madman." The issue is
peace, itself. Peace.
'capital. Six feet tall, slim but
broad shouldered with black hair
and a meticulously groomed
beard, he is witty, ingratiating
and carries himself with dignity.
He made friends easily with the
Egyptian aides who accompanied
Sadat to Jerusalem a week ago.
Politically, Ben-Elissar has
always been a Herut loyalist. As
a child he was smuggled out of
Nazi-dominated Europe by
Polish friends of his family.
Many of his relatives perished in
the Holocaust. Until 1965. Ben-
Elissar was an operative of
Mossad, Israel's secret intel-
ligence agency, which kept him
out of politics. In 1971, he
declared his political preference
and became chief of information
at Herut's headquarters.
HIS SECOND in the Cairo
talks will be Meir Rosenne, legal
adviser to the Foreign Ministry
and an old friend. Both men
studied political science at the
Paris Sorbonne in the 1950s and
both worked part-time at the
Israeli Embassy in Paris under
Ambassador Jacob Tsur.
Rosenne was born in Rumania
and served as Israel Consul in
New York in the late 1950s. He
was closely involved in the post-
Yom Kippur War negotiations
and was present at Kilometer 101
where the first Israeli-Egyptian
cease-fire was negotiated.
He went to Geneva in the
spring of 1974 as a participant in

The dinner, which was held in
cooperation with the Albert

Greeting the guests President
Horev said that "Mexico and

this visit serves as a wonderful
basis for mutual cooperation for
the benefit of both countries, in
spite of the miles which separate
us geographically."

Kidnaped Jews Released in Argentina

NEW YORK UTA) -
Three of the five members of the
Deutsch family first kidnapped
from their home in Cordoba. Ar-
gentina, on Aug. 27 and then
detained by government
authorities, have been released,
according to an official of the
Anti-Defamation League who
just returned from a two-week
visit to Argentina and other
Latin American countries.
Speaking before a meeting of
ADL leaders in Buffalo, N.Y.,
Rabbi Morton M. Rosenthal,
director of the agency's Latin
American affairs department,
described the release of Mrs.
Helena Deutsch and two of her
daughters, Susana and Elsa. as
an "encouraging sign although
her husband, Alejandro a
businessman and artist and the
couple's youngest daughter,
Liliana, remain in custody.
HE SAID that concern for the
well-being of the Deutsch family
will remain high until the entire
family is freed. He pointed out
that in Argentina, the family s
arrest is generally believed to
have been a blunder by low-level
police officials who were looking
for the Deutsch's son. The
Deutsch family was kidnapped
by a band of 12 men dressed in
civilian clothing.
In response to repeated
inquiries from abroad, the Ar-
gentian government announced

who walked out of the

ur other members of the
Mian delegation joined
uid in the walk-out. The
Mian envoy told reporters
J he had left the Assembly
(to protest the attack on his

He said he would not reply to
the Syrian attack. Meguid's aide
remained behind but read a
newspaper while the Syrian
spoke.
"I
was very, very much un-
happy and sorry to hear the
speech of the representative of
Syria Meguid told reporters
outside the Assembly hall. "I
wanted to show

territory and to recognize the
national rights of the Palestinian
people, including the right to an
independent state on their own

ALLAF SAID that Sadat's
visit damaged the Arab cause
because it saved Israel from its
isolation and was a de facto
recognition of Israel's seizure of
Jerusalem. It was also, he said, a
surrender to Israeli insistence on
imposing direct negotiations
while still occupying Arab land.
The Syrian envoy declared that
Sadat, "one of the heroes of the
October (1973) war, "the suc-
cessor to the late President
Nasser, went to Jerusalem to
shake the hands of the "known
terrorist" Menachem Begin, "the
war criminal" Moshe Dayan, and
kissing the cheek of "the racist"
Golda Meir.
Allaf said that Syria is ready to
make peace with Israel only if the
Jewish State shows readiness to

Precedent for Sadat Encounter
By MAURICE SAMUELSON
LONDON (JTA) -
There is only one precedent
in modern Jewish history
for the encounter between
Egypt's President Anwar
Sadat and the leaders of
Israel. Prime Minister
Menachem Begin referred
to it in his Knesset reply to
Sadat.
It was the meeting at
Aqaba in June, 1918
between Dr. Chaim Weiz-
'We Arabs, especially the
educated among us, look
with the deepest sym-
pathy on the Zionist
movement We will
wish the Jews a most
hearty welcome home .
I hope the Arabs may
soon be in a position to
make the Jews some
return for their kindness.'

Arab national movement in

Sharansky And
Sakharov Louder
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Vice President Walter Mondale
said here that imprisoned Soviet
Jewish activist Anatoly
Sharansky and Soviet dissident
Andrei Sakharov should be con-
sidered as among the 36
righteous men Jewish legend
says must be alive in order for the
world to survive.
Mondale made this statement
to the 600 delegates to the B'nai
B rith Ami-Defamation Leagues
annual meeting here after they
heard a sobbing Natalia
Sharansky plead, 'Mr. Vice
President, friends, help me to win
my husband's freedom."
MRS. SHARANSKY, who had
to leave the Soviet Union a dav
after she married Sharansky,
received a standing ovation led
by Mondale after she declared
that she wants "only for my
husband and me to be in Jeru-
salem to begin our Jewish
family."
Responding at the ceremony at
which Sharansky and Sakharov,
a Nobel Laureate, were awarded
in absentia the ADL's annual
Joseph Prize for human rights,
Mondale promised that he would
"personally report" to President
Carter on Mrs. Sharansky's
appeal. Sharansky has been im-
prisoned since March, and it is
feared he may be brought to trial
soon on charges of treason.

Paris Peace Conference and two
important declarations of friend-
ship by the Arab leader.
On Jan. 3, 1919, Feisal and Dr.
Weizmann signed an agreement
in their respective roles as rep-
resentatives of the Arab King-
dom of the Hejaz and of the
World Zionist Organization.
Referring to the "racial kinship
and ancient bonds existing
between the Arabs and the
Jewish people," it called for "the
closest possible collaboration in
the development of the Arab
state and Palestine."
ARTICLE 1 stated that "The
Arab state and Palestine in all
their relations and undertakings
shall be controlled by the most
cordial good will and under-
standing, and to this end Arab
and Jewish duly accredited
agents shall be established and
maintained in the respective
territories."
Article 4 stated that "All
necessary measures shall be
taken to encourage and stimulate
immigration of Jews into
Palestine on a large scale, and as
quickly as possible to settle
Jewish immigrants upon the land
through closer settlement and
and shall be assisted in for-
warding their economic
development."
Other articles guaranteed free-
dom of religion in Palestine,
Moslem control of the Islamic
holy places and Zionist advice
about the economic development
of the new Arab state.
FEISAL'S SECOND public
declaration of friendship for
Zionist aspirations was contained
in his letter, dated March 3, 1919,
to Felix Frankfurter, a member of
the American Zionist delegation
at the Paris Peace Conference.
Feisal wrote:
"We Arabs, especially the
educated among us, look with the
deepest sympathy on the Zionist
movement ... We will wish the
Jews a most hearty welcome
home ... I hope the Arabs may
soon be in a position to make the
Jews some return for their kind-
ness. We are working together for
a reformed and revived Near East
and our two movements complete
one another. The Jewish move-
ment is national and not im-
perialist. Our movement is
national and not imperialist, and
there is room in Syria for us both.
Indeed, I think that neither can
be a real success without the
other."

hth Israel of America has
on the United States
himent to stop financing
Lst goals such as last week's
[nal women's conference in
lion
I condemn the recent
-,8 conference in Houston
Copting a broad range of
kions which are contrary to
tcepted moral value of our
fv," the delegates to the
dox group's 55th con-
Ion said in a resolution
at the opening session
hursday.
i 3,000 delegates, in-
|ng the foremost scholars in
Xism from around the
krv, met here to deliberate
|nt Jewish issues in this
[trv and overseas.
THE RESOLUTION con
demnmg the women's con-
ferences added: "We are further
disturbed that this conference
was financed with the taxpayers'
dollars of all Americans when its
proceedings do not reflect grass-
roots America."
However, Rabbi Simon Sch-
wab, spiritual leader of Con-
gregation K'hal Adath Jeshurun,
New York City, and Rabbi Chaini
Dov Keller, dean of the Telshe
Yeshiva of Chicago, said later
that the feminist movement does
not threaten Orthodox Judaism.
They said the education
provided in yeshivot and Jewish
day schools was adequate to
preserve the traditional role of
the woman in Jewish life.
SCHWAB declared that
"while the dangers of a rising
anti-traditional feminism is more
or less met by widespread
educational endeavors under
Torah auspices, the pressures
exerted by society's inversion of
most of our sacred values are
only beginning to be realized and
are not met at all as yet."
Citing an example of necessary
change for the benefit of the
Jewish community, he said: "The
first two or three very wealthy
parents who make a simple
wedding for their children and
divert the savings to Torah
causes will be able to set a new
trend."

_ that morality must be
than a theory it must be

[no group of men and women
stands more acutely that
, depends ultimately not on
leal arrangements but on the
jence of mankind. History is
cruel, and rarely logical,
rt the wisest of realists are
who recognize that fate can
be shaped by human faith
jurage. These qualities are
brought the State of Israel

i be nurtured by all friends of
1 for they are the ultimate
itee of Israel's future.
It faith and courage are not
kh. The people of Israel have
Itoo much of the transitori-
|of human intentions to en-
] the destiny of their nation

hces however sincere and
fetly intended. A peace to be

No President would

pdermme Israel's future for
global considerations. My
acquaintance with President
Jr. Secretary Vance and their
Ir advisers convinces me that
1 Administration would not
jerately put Israel's security
Mi. But there is always the
pr that actions undertaken
faith may inadvertently
luce unforeseen con-
Jnces. If such a miscal-
fon took place, either Israel
1 become totally isolated or
imacy would become
btly deadlocked. The art of
nacy is to move events

vable ends so that neither
Jnited States nor Israel ever

leaders cannot exper-

lPjew wrong, they risk the

owe the people of Israel

\jm threat of war since its
At the same time,
must understand the
** of Middle East peace
global concerns of the
totes and the Western
| which are indeed th essan-
tial underpinning ot Israel
security.
Fourth, an overall solution is of
course the ultimate prize. Hut
realism forces us to recognise
that to achieve it involves issues
of enormous complexity and
parties with an unequal commit-
ment to peace. It also requires a
process that is bound to be
protracted. Thus, while striving
for an overall settlement, we
must take care not to foreclose
other opportunities that may
arise to ease tensions and to
enable the peoples of the area to
build confidence. We must not
give a veto to the most intran-
sigent elements within the area.
We must not permit outside
powers to emerge as the ad-
vocates for a point of view that
penalizes moderation.
Fifth, some structures develop
their own momentum that cannot
be judged by formal declarations
or abstract blueprints. A Pales-
tinian state on the West Bank is
bound to be an element of in-
stability both for Jordan and for
Israel; it will compound the
crisis, not solve it. Such a state
whatever the professions or
guarantees must have ob-
iectivea that cannot be com-
patible with the tranquilitv of the
Middle F.ast. It cannot be an
accident that no attempt to
create such a state was ever made
during the 20 years of Arab rule
in that territory.
SIXTH, any peace settlement
must of necessity involve
guarantees, but they must be
worked out with great care and
with a sense for their limits.
History should teach us that
guarantees by themselves are not
a substitute for security. No
nation should be asked to ab-
dicate its judgment of the
requirements of its survival. Care
must be taken that guarantees do
not provide a pretext for an
outside power to intervene con-
stantly in the affairs of the area.
With respect to bilateral U.S.-
Israeli treaty arrangements,
there is the danger that the rati-
fication process may produce a
debate that paradoxically haz-
ards the friendship and close co-
operation which have served so
well for a generation. In short,
guarantees require the most
careful reflection and study; at
best, they reinforce, they cannot
bring about security.
Seventh, whatever the \
about the desirability of begin-
ning the process of negotiations
with a (Jeneva conference, so
much effort has been invested in
it that it has become the touch
stone of the prospects of peace.
All parties therefore.have a stake
in bringing such a conference into
being. At the same time, we must
recognize that when it is finally
assembled, Geneva will be an
important achivement, but its
primary significance will be pro-
cedural. Ahead of us will be
complex negotiations about
frontiers, commitments to peace,
security arrangements and other
issues which will test the wisdom
and commitment of the parties.
These issues cannot be left to
the pressures of a conference; it is
not too soon to explore them
actively with the parties. We
cannot wait for Geneva to resolve
all the complexities that range
from the relations of sub-groups
to the main conference to the
concrete outlines of a definition of
peace. Especially as far as Israel
is concerned, it is incompatible
with our historic relationship to
deal with issues of such gravity
in an atmosphere of self-imposed
deadlines. And it does not help
those Arab leaders who have had
the wisdom and the courage to
the journey ;trds peace
to raise expectatioi iat cannot
be fulfilled.
GENEVA will be ceeMftdto
the extent that U 1 and the
United States end he cycle of
rear and reassurance of outraged
protest and soothing generalities
and turn to the elaboration of a
common concrete approach. This
requires a willingness on one side
to give the benefit of the doubt
and a readiness on the other to
understand the anguish of a
people whose historic suffering
precludes the abdication of its
own judgment, but whose
martyrs guarantee that the
search for peace, while painful,
will be dedicated and committed.

1978 UJA Moves
Gear
Continued from Pane 1-A
years, since the State was estab-
lished, the Jewish Agency has
helped some 2.5 million new-
comers. The Agency is the major
beneficiary of the national UJA
which, in turn, is the major bene-
ficiary of funds raised in Fort
Lauderdale by the Federation's
UJA campaign.
Charles Locke, general chair-
man of the campaign, termed the
Woodmont dinner "a very strong
beginning," noting at the same
time that campaigning has
started "in earnest in every part
of Greater Fort Lauderdale."
Locke called particular atten-
tion to the next four-figure event,
the Federation's annual Man of
the Year Dinner, which has
$1,000 as the minimum gift for
persons who will attend. The din-
ner will take place Saturday, Jan.
14, in Pier 66.
SAMUEL J. Goldfarb of Point
of Americas, a colorful philan-
thropist and author of three
books of reminiscence and per-
sonal comment on a wide range of
philosophical, religious, political
and cultural themes, has been
named as the Federation's 1978
Man of the Year. Goldfarb will
soon mark his seventy-fifth
birthday. A dinner committee of
75 men and women all promi-
nent in Jewish civic and com-
munal affairs is headed by Mr.
and Mrs. Leo Goodman and Sen.
and Mrs. Samuel L. Greenberg,
all of Woodlands. Both Goodman
and Greenberg are past general
chairmen of the Fort Lauderdale
UJA. Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Soref
are honorary chairpersons. Soref
was the Federation's Man of the
Year for 1977. Israel Ambassador
to the United Nations, Chaim
Herzog, will be the principal
speaker.
Locke noted one innovation
this year that he said would "un-
doubtedly prove popular" with
campaign volunteers. This is a
Workers Training Seminar,
which he said would take place
Sunday. Dec. 11. at the Airport

Soviet Authorities Promise
Sharansky to be Punished
The worldwide campaign of
protest at the arrest and im-
prisonment of Anatoly Sharan-
sky, a Soviet-Jewish activist, has
provoked a fresh outburst from
Soviet authorities, who are
making foreign broadcasts con-
demning the imprisoned activist
as a "traitor of his motherland."
Despite the fact that Sharan-
sky has now been held incom-
municado since March, 1977, and
that no specific charges have
been formulated, the broadcast in
English by Victor Vladimirov on
Oct. 28 labeled Sharansky as
guilty and promised "that he will
be punished with all the strict-
ness of Soviet law."
There is speculation among
Soviet activists as to the timing
of this latest attack. One of them
said, "It is probably intended to
keep discussions of particular
cases off the agenda at Belgrade.
Although the Soviet delegates
are prepared to discuss human
rights as a generality, they are
desperate not to have specific
cases like Anatoly Sharansky's
put on the table."
Here are some excerpts of the
braodcast:
"Zionist organizations in the
West have recently been going
out of their way to blow up an
anti-Soviet campaign over the
case of the traitor Anatoly
Sharansky. Special meetings
have been held in Washington,
Paris. The Hague, Hamburg and
Oslo (it begins somewhat inac-
curately the meeting was held
in Stockholm) "at which he has
been presented as 'an innocent
victim of arbitrary rule,' an or-
dinary 'Jewish champion of
human rights.' All sorts of 'wit-
nesses' are harping on this at
these meetings. They are being
taken free from Europe to
America and back like stage
props on a theatrical tour.
"But who is Anatoly Sharan-
sky, this allegedly innocent
champion of human rights? As
has been reported, Sharansky has
been accused of helping a foreign
i state to carry out hostile ac-
[ tivities against the Soviet Union.
Facts show that Sharansky
I systematically collected and fab-
ricated slanderous information
I about Soviet reality and passed it
on to the West to be widely used
for anti-Soviet purposes. On the
orders of his masters, he supplied
the West with data on Soviet
industries and institutions
trading with capitalist countries
and, together with his accom-
plices, he did everything to help
the circles interested in dis-
rupting trade links between these
countries and the Soviet Union.
Sharansky's brother com-
mented, "The attack is despic-
able and in keeping with the
whole lying campaign against
Anatoly, whose sole aim was, and
is, to help his fellow refuseniks."

I declined. The offer was
repeated. When Bernie saw
that I might say no again, he
looked at me and said,
'Mitchie, how can you say
no?' So I said yes."
That's almost the way it
happened when Mr. Libros
was invited to continue as
Woodlands UJA chairman
for 1978 after heading the '77
drive. When Mrs. Libros saw
that he was of a mind to step
down, she invoked the magic
five words: "How can you
say no?"
The couple is one of the
most popular in both Wood-
lands and the Jewish Feder-
ation leadership. Both are
veteran travelers and
have literally seen the world.
They're as often on the high
seas or on some high sierra
as on some voyage or
summit in the Federation's
swiftly-paced campaign.
Right now, both are pre-
paring for major meetings.
Bernie Libros and a hard-
driving committee are
putting together a campaign
event that has become a
tradition the so-called
"men only, Woodlands only,
$1,000 minimum dinner."
The dinner, which takes
place this Tuesday (Dec. 13)
in the home of Seymour
Sorel, will inaugurate the
Woodlands UJA drive for
1978. In the campaign for
1977, the Woodlands UJA
Men's effort produced over
$400,000. The target this
year is "better than a half
million." If achieved, that
would account for 20 percent
of the $2.5 million goal the
over-all Federation drive has
set for itself.
MRS. LIBROS, a lady
best distinguished by an
ever-ready smile and cheerful
demeanor, has two major
events in the next several
days that are almost "back-
to-back." The first is a Lion's
Division Luncheon with
minimum giving at the
$2,500 level that is set for
this Monday (Dec. 12) in the
Tower Club atop Fort Lau-
derdale's Landmark Bank
building. The second is an
advance gifts dinner with a
$1,000 minimum that will
take place this coming
Wednesday (Dec. 14) in the
home of Mrs. Irene Danker
of Bay Colony. Both events
traditionally have produced
major sums.
Mitchie Libros was born in
the Bronx, N.Y., and was
raised and educated in
Brooklyn. Bernie Libros was
born in Philadelphia, where
he was raised and educated.
He met Mitchie in Phila-
delphia. Both went on to live
in the borough of Queens,
N.Y., moved to Roslyn, Long
Island, and came to Fort
Lauderdale in 1972. Each has
emulated a parent in be-
coming a builder and servant
of the Jewish community
and Israel.
Bernie Libros' father was a
member and convention
delegate of the Zionist Or-
ganization of America. His
mother was active in the
Jewish National Fund. He
became active in the UJA
while living on Long Island,
where he was active also in
Israel bonds and Hollis Hills
Jewish Center.
MITCHIE 1 Libros'
mother was a founder of the
Ocean Parkway Jewish Cen-
ter. Mitchie herself con-
tinued her mother's tradition
by serving in the sisterhood
of the Hollis Hills Jewish
Center of Queens and as
chairman of the Center's
Youth Group. She was also a
volunteer at the Long Island
Jewish Hospital, and for a
time was assistant district
organizer of the G irl Scouts.
Both say of their cam-
paign activities that "it's
tough but it's a challenge."
Mitchie Libros says "it's
the greatest, most awesome
challenge I've faced. I hope
and pray they don't say no to
me." Bernie Libros nods in
agreement. "Thank God,
most Jews say yea."

Russian Jewish immiQRants Light fmst Chanukah Cantte
By NATASHACARLTON
RUSSIAN-JEWISH immigrants who recently
arrived in New York witnessed the lighting of the
Bret Chanukah candle at a party hosted by
NYANA, the New York Association for New
Americans. For staff members, it was the first
candle of the Festival of Lights Chanukah
1977. For the guests cut off from Judaism all
their lives it was the first they'd ever seen.
Rabbi Morris Feldman, director of the Metro-
politan Region of the United Synagogue of
America, officiated during the candlelighting
ceremony which took place at the gaily decorated
offices of NYANA, and told the Russian new-
comers with simultaneous translation into
Russian about the meaning of the holiday.
HE WAS introduced by Mrs. Edna Rosenman,
I
director of Department of Jewish Education,
Community Services and Volunteers for the
agency, who had planned and executed the whole
affair and who did the honors all around.
Welcoming remarks to the newcomers were
extended by Dr. Herbert Bernstein, executive
director of NYANA, which is the only agency
providing resettlement assistance to all Jewish
immigrants in the Greater New York area.
Speaking of "two shining lights*' that beckon
new arrivals, he explained: "One is the light of
the menorah, which for thousands of years has
celebrated the miracle of freedom for Jews. The
second is the Statue of Liberty which is also the
light representing American freedom, specifically
lit to welcome immigrants to our shores."
MRS. BLANCHE ROSS, president of
:j*i: NYANA, which receives its funds from national
United Jewish Appeal and the UJA-Federation
Joint Campaign in New York, continued the
:::: theme of freedom in her greetings to the Russian
::j: guests.
"Chanukah has many meanings," she said,
::"::":i; "but it is first of all a festival of freedom.
Historically it was a fight of a small group of
people who thought freedom worth fighting for
a fight of few against many."
And, drawing a parallel to today's immigrants
from the Soviet Union, "since you are the few who
fought against overwhelming odds, it is most
fitting that tonight we celebrate Chanukah
together with you." There were tears in the eyes
of many Russian guests.
AFTER THE formal ceremonies the festivities
began. Youngsters from the Metropolitan Region
entertained with singing and dancing, gradually
involving the Russian guests in the fun. Refresh-
Hussion Jewish children light up their Chanukah menorahs at Chanukah party in Rome, for
menorahs and put on a dance program for tneir parent. r

Speaking of 'two shining lights' that
beckon new arrivals, he explained: 'One
is the light of the menorah, which for
thousands of years has celebrated the
miracle of freedom for Jews. The second
is the Statue of Liberty which is also
the light representing American
freedom, specifically lit to welcome
immigrants to our shores.'
ments included the traditional lathes (potato
pancakes); for the adult guests there were gift
kits containing a menorah (the Chanukah candel-
abra), a box of colored candles, a calendar of the
Jewish year, printed in Russian, as well as liter-
ature in Russian and Hebrew on the history of the
Jews, holiday benedictions and customs.
The children were eating the traditional
chocolate Chanukah gelt and spinning their
dreidles a top with four Hebrew letters which
stand for "A Big Miracle Took Place Here" (in
the Temple in Jerusalem, where a cruse of oil,
enough to last one day, burned for eight days).
THE GUESTS were glowing with the ex-
citement of sharing this joyous occasion with
their fellow immigrants and with NYANA staff
members.
As Mrs. Betya Berkowitz, an immigrant from
Odessa, put it: "This is so beautiful. It is so new
to us. We knew nothing. We are so happy to learn
about Jewish traditions and holidays so that we
can bring up our children in the spirit of
Judaism."

Jewish Refugees of the mi66le east

A Personal Account of an Irani Jew
Too few are aware of the conflicting extremes
that characterize the history of the Jews of Iraq
the unsurpassed contribution to Jewish culture
and heritage, on the one hand, and the very often
harsh environment in which these accomplish-
ments were effected, on the other.
Perhaps a measure of what this time-honored
community had to go through can be found in the
fact that, according to 3ome estimates, the Jewish
population in Iraq in the middle of the 7th Cen-
tury may have amounted to about a million
people.
THIRTEEN hundred years later there were
only 150.000 of us. Jews in Nazi-occupied Wes-
tern Europe had to wear a yellow Star of Day*
for identification. Iraq has the dubious distinction
of being the first country in history, as for as I
know, to impose such a restriction. Only the form
was different. It was a yellow scarf rather than a
yellow star.
Nevertheless, the Jewish community in Iraq
did not surrender, and its contribution to Jewish
heritage continued. Perhaps I should say one or
two more words about this aspect. Not only
through the Babylonian Talmud did the Iraqi
Jewry make its impact; the story extends over
earlier, as well as later years.

In about 468 BCE, Ezra Ha-Sofer, along with
other Babylonian Jewish notables went to Judet
to correct the deteriorating social and religio^
conditions.
AMONG MANY innovations they introduced
was the practice of calling for an assembly of the
people in the Temple Courts where portions of the
Torah were read aloud to them. This was done on
every Saturday and holiday, as well as on the two
market days during the working week. The
custom of reading portions of the Torah on these
same days lives with us to this day.
Hakham David Sasson had this to say of a
book written by Saadia Gaon in the 10th Century

THE RESPONSES of Rab Shmuel Ibn Ali,
head of Yeshivath Gaon Yaacob in Baghdad
(during the 12th Century) were addressed to
Jewish communities as far away as what is Rus-
sia today. And up to this date, a prayer is recited
in the Ashkenazi Rite (Yakum Purkan Min
Shemaya) for the Babylonian Academies that
carried the torch for so many centuries.
In the 19th Century, Hakham Abdalla Somekh
founded in Baghdad the famous yeshivah known
as Midrash Beth Zilkha. Several Hakhamim who
came to study in this yeshiva later went on to
become Reshonim Le Sion (chief rabbis).

formed the world that nine Jews had been con-
victed by a military tribunal of espionage lor
Israel and had immediately been executed. They
were hanged publicly in the downtown area ot
Baghdad. The Iraqi regime earned out the
venomous act with apparent pride.
It was during the day before the hangings took

sons after their executions?
I RECALL similar conditions when we were
still in Baghdad in the late 1940's. When all
seemed dark and we had almost crumbled under
the wave of hangings, prison tortures, and mock
trials, a proud son of the community, the late Sen.
Ezra Menahem Daniel, took the floor of the
Senate. In a defiant mood, he reminded the Iraqis
of their ingratitude to a community that had
brought everything good that is in Iraq. I recall
the boost his courage gave to our souls. Some of
the defiant spirit of this noble man seemed to
have seized us as well. The press demanded his
head.
But it was one of those rare occasions when the
Iraqi authorities correctly appraised the situation
and decided they had better retreat than risk
touching him.
Few people know probably how this com-
munity was finally tricked out of its possessions

before the mass immigration in the early 1950's.
Uunng the late 1940's, Jews were generally not
allowed to leave the country.
. ,VNPER A HASTILY enacted law, Jews were
told that they could leave the country if they de-
clared in writing.within a year from the date of
the enactment of the law, their desire to leave
Iraq. A Jew who so declared would be stripped of
his citizenship and would then be allowed to leave
the country. To most of us, losing Iraqi citizen-
ship was not an item we would lose much sleep
over.
It does, however, create problems, since state-
Iessness is a hindrance to landing almost any-
where. Our greatest fear was that this was a trap.
Many feared that the Iraqi authorities planned to
use the list of Jews who had declared their desire
to leave the country as an excuse for extending
the terror from the selected few to the masses.
There was no date mentioned in the law that

stipulated when these people could look forward
to leaving the country. And we would not trust
Iraqi laws anyway.
SOME HARDY souls did go to declare their
desire to leave. Most of the community took a
wait-and-see attitude. The British government
declared that it would allow such Jews to land in
Cyprus if Iraq were to let them go. In a few
months, the first few who had signed the declara-
tion were flown out of the country. The evacua-
tion went at a very slow pace. We held our breath
and wondered if they ever did arrive safely, or
whether we were about to witness a repeat of the
story of the Inquisition. Then, many of the
Spanish Jews who paid for the sea journey to es-
cape from the Iberian Peninsula were murdered
on the boat or else thrown into the sea.

Australia that confirmed the fact that the few
hundred Jews who had renounced their citizen-
ship and had flown out of Iraq did eventually
arrive in Israel. There was then a big rush to en-
roll. People wanted to believe that there was no
trap. The lines for registration were long, and the
registration centers were jammed during the last

the trip was too far in the future. The alternative
of liquidating their assets and sitting and waiting
until their turn for the trip came was simply no
real alternative.
Unfortunately, that was the trap. The day the
registration year ended, the Iraqi authorities de-
clared that all Jews who had signed the declara-
tion to leave Iraq had now lost title to their assets
- businesses, real estate, bank accounts and all
other possessions.
Thus, the wealthiest Jewish community of the
Middle East was converted overnight into a com-

top Women leaOeRs of inoustpy in Israel toOay
LONG BEFORE the feminist movement raised
battle cries, women in Israel were making their
mark with "affirmative action" in Israel industry.
On a day in June last year, the First National
Bank of Chicago flew the Israeli flag on its
elegant plaza. The occasion was the visit of Mrs.
Therese Flesch, Deputy General Manager of the
American Israel Bank. The gesture on the part
of one of the most noted international banks was
not. she insists, due to her own status, but a
slight indication of the high esteem in which
Israel is held.
The pert veteran of Israel's banking industry
began her career at the age of 15 as a new im-
migrant from Germany and today is known to
bankers and foreign exchange dealers all over the
world.
THE ONLY woman on the executive of the
6,000-member Foreign Exchange Dealers Asso-
ciation (FOREX) and Secretary of the Israel Club
of the Association, the dynamic bank manager
has occasion to become aware of Israel's image
during her frequent business meetings abroad. At
a recent conference of FOREX in Washington,
DC. attended by representatives of major banks,
Mrs. Flesch was told by many of her bank
associates:
"Israel has nothing to worry about. You have
the backing of the American Jews, the American
people, and the American Treasury." A remark-
able combination, she admits.
NO LESS remarkable is Therese Flesch's con-
tribution to Israel's world of finance.
Shortly after arriving from Germany with a
rudimentary education in bookkeeping and a
knowledge of several languages, Therese got a job
as a clerk in the old Japhet Bank. She was soon
shifted to a more responsible position and sub-
sequently worked in every department. Even
today, she can fill in for every member of the
staff, growing up with the bank as she did and
undergoing all its changes. Recently, upon ac-
quiring the Jerusalem and Tel Aviv branches of
the Kxchange National Bank of Chicago, the

Japhet Bank became part of the American Israel
Bank, with the Bank Hapoalim remaining the
major shareholder.
As the bank's general manager, Therese Flesch
has her fingers on the pulse of the news of the
world that comes across the ticker all day. For
every event, she contends, influences finance, not
only money.
THE FINANCIAL atmosphere of a country,
for example, is not only is currency rate, but the
morale of the people. When people are depressed

serves. When they are buoyant, businessmen talk
of expansion, promoting export, opening fac-
tories, importing new machinery, training and
hiring specialists. Sometimes, inner values are a
greater consideration than bank reserves which
are not functioning," she adds.
Being a woman has, if anything, made her more
sought after by clients, who like a personal touch
even or she corrects herself especially in a
bank.

Continued from Page 7-B
In the computerized world in which we live,
people are looking for human contact, Therese
Flesch is confident. A woman is often easier to
talk to and confide in about financial matters
than a man This is true, she has found, also when
receiving bank associates from abroad. A banker
will talk about more personal matters with her
than with a male colleague.
WHEN TOLD this article would include her
among other women, Therese Flesch chuckled: "I
am not accustomed to being among women. I am
usually in a company of males.
This is very much the case, too, of two women
top executives at El Al, Israel's national airlines.
Luba Volk, Vice President and Secretary General,
a unique position for a woman to have achieved in
an airline, and Hadassah Rifkin, Director of the
Administration Division, are in the second and
third highest positions, respectively, and joined
El Al at the start of its operations. The careers of
both have run parallel with the company's
development, and historic events of the Jewish
State.
Luba Volk joined El Al when she completed her
military service in the Air Force, as secretary of
the Air Force Commander. After doing a stint as
a secretary, she moved swiftly into a position of
assistant to the director of the Contract Depart-
ment then dealing with non-commercial flights
and clandestine functions of Aliya.
IT WAS 1961, the boom year of mass im-
migration; 100,000 Jews from North Africa were
being flown to Israel. There was the Ali Baba air-
lift from Iraq, the Flying Carpet from Aden,
incredible operations. Luba Volk still marvels at
them. Every phase was implemented by her
Contract Department. Luba was involved in
every detail of the planning and conduct of the
flights, the hiring of foreign airlines, drawing up
of contracts, recruiting of crew and dispatch to
Arab countries from which Jewish immigrants
were being rescued.
This was the beginning of a managerial career
unique in an airline that has led to authority
achieved by few women in the transportation
z industry of any county. As Corporate Secretary,

Luba Volk sits on the Board of Directors and at
meetings of company shareholders, and is respon-
sible for coordinating legal counsel and
authorizing transactions.
SHE REPRESENTS company policy visa vis
the press and is concerned with relations with
various organizations both in Israel and abroad
as well as with the airlines that land at Ben
Gurion Airport. Everything that happens in the
airline is her business and she is on 24-hour call,
which while not always convenient, is necessary,
she contends. She attributes to two males -
company director Mordecai Ben Arzi and her
husband, an engineering consultant with his own
firm the moral support that was the sina qua
non of her present status.
Women have special sensitivity, tact and in-
sight that qualify them for executive positions
and, if anything, are at a great disadvantage in a
world of men this is the opinion of Hadassah
Rifkin, who also started her career in El Al as a
secretary, and is a frequent representative of the
airline at international meetings.
YOU CAN remain in the job of secretary and
processing papers, if that is what you like, she
says about her rise to her present position. But if
you became intensely involved in what you are
doing, you want to make changes, add your own
initiative, become still more involved and take on
extra responsibilities. You do not even have to
wait until you are offered an advance. You are
soon in command without or rather prior to of-
ficial notification of it.
That is the way Hadassah Rifkin explains the
major areas of work for which she is now respon-
sible at El Al: Transportation of passengers and
employees, maintenance and operation of
vehicles, purchasing of all equipment with the
exception of the carriers, from pencils to tractors
and including even spare parts and fuel. Another
activity of her department is insurance and
claims, as well as ground communication in-
cluding all electrical connections to planes in
flight, the running of the ITA Center which
makes electronic reservations and finally ad-
ministration of everything relating to the airport
restaurants and food.

WHAT IT boils down to, says Ida Seidler,
General Manager of Wissotsky Tea Company, is
that being in business means being in a fight all
the time (not necessarily against anyone), and
fighting is not a role generally conferred upon
women.
When her husband, Shimon Seidler, passed
away 20 years ago, Ida, an irrepressible bundle of
energy, undertook the running of the business.
While she had never studied either business
management or any phase of tea production, Ida
slid into management of the firm, bringing about
a new era of prosperity. Today, Wissotsky
supplies 80 percent (four out of five cups con-
sumed) of the local trade and conducts a steady
export to the U.S., Canada, Sweden, Cyprus,
France, Rumania, Australia and Africa

Today, there are new headaches. With the
exorbitant price of coffee, there has been an in-
crease in tea drinking and we have trouble getting
some of the required ingredients, Ida sighs. But it
means fighting again.
Tea is a man's business. It belongs to a man's
world and she is fortunate, she says, that her son,
who inherited his father's palate as a tea taster,
was ready to join the firm.
THE COMPANY was established by Klony-
mous Zev Wisstosky, a 25-year-old Lithuanian
Chassid, one of the founders of the Lovers of Zion,
and supplied one cup to every three found in
Russia samovars. In 1907, the firm moved to
London, establishing the Anglo-Asiatic Com-
pany. Ahad Haam, manager of the company's
Odessa branch, became head of the London office.

tine, Ahad Haam became one of the company's

Ida Seidler tells this story as she shows you
around her ultra-modern factory where tea flows
down from the top of the building and is
processed, completely down to loading in a fleet of
vans that take the cargo to all parts of the
country and ports for foreign sales.
ON THE premises, a museum is being estab-
lished which will include samovars that have been
handed down through the ages. If you have any
doubt about the dream of Russian Jews to return
to Zion, she says, look. She shows us a samovar
on which the wedding date is embossed with the
Hebrew date 26 Adar, 5,674. It listed the journey
from Lodz to Moscow, back to Lodz and finally to
Tel Aviv.
I was always part of the business, Ida Seidler
says proudly, and she is nonplussed by the
amazement she arouses in members of the trade
she visits abroad. Recently, Ida Seidler was the
first woman ever to be invited by the Lipton Tea
Company to be their guest.

BEING IN business has nothing to do with
your sex, says Lotto Eisenberg, Acting vice
Chairman of the Israel Resort Hotels and perhaps
the most influential single personality in the
development of the hotel industry of Israel lhe
only woman sitting on the executive of the Inter-
national Hotel Association, Lotto, as she i
known to everyone, may be best known as
manager for 30 years of the Galei Kuineret m
Tiberias, a model of tourist facility that many
hotels not only in Israel but in other countries
have tried to emulate.
My work is my hobby, even today, says Lotte,
adviser on hotel matters to the Israel Land
Development Company. Its subsidiary, the Israel
Resort Hotels, owns the Galei Kinneret, Tiberias,
Rimon Inn in Safed; Neptune, In Eilat; Sharon,
in Herzliah; and manages the Sinai Hotel in Tel
Aviv.
Hoteling is natural for women because they are
hostesses, cooks, housekeepers and have a third
ear for problems, says Lotte Eisenberg.
SHE HAD entered the tourism industry
shortly after immigrating from Germany, as a
guide in the Herzl Room of the Keren Kayemet.
Then, she worked for a while as a hostess of the
Tiberias Hot Springs, later leasing the Dolphin
House.
Lotte Eisenberg helped to lay the groundwork
for the establishment of guest facilities at Kib-
butzim. She also pioneered the manufacture of
hotel commodities, then unknown in the country,
by finding the Israeli manufacturers willing to
produce them locally, from ashtrays to towels.
She personally supervised the architecture and
interior decorations of the hotels she opened up as
well as the hiring and training of staff. Today,
managers of some of Israel's largest hotels and
hotels around the world can attribute their
training to Lotte.
Did she have trouble being a boss over so many
men? "I didn't," she smiles, "perhaps the men
did."
IT NEEDN'T be a problem, says Judith Mul-
ler, creator of Bat Sheba Perfume. "I would say
being a woman is always an asset, especially in
going abroad to promote the product." she adds.
It is doubtful if there would have been an in-
digenous perfume industry known abroad were it
not for the ambition of this petite, phenomenal
woman who started Judith Muller Perfumes over
ten years ago and succeeded in selling the Israeli
perfume to 16 countries with steadily increasing
volume.

Like Helena Rubinstein, the Hungarian-born
Miss Muller started her busineas with a jar of
cream. "I shlepped the first 20,000 bottles ol
perfume myself," she says. Her hand-painted
bottles were filled by her and a friend. Today, her
export is over a half million dollars annually and
her best customers are in Australia, Canada,
Europe, Japan, Hong Kong. Directing every
process of the production and promotion gives
Miss Muller a full day.
BUT IT did not happen overnight, she says.
She started giving beauty treatments to girls in
the army while herself still in military service.
Then she went abroad to study, and after gradu-
ation from a Paris beauty institute, she opened a
beauty treatment salon in central Haifa. In
between, she was experimenting with an original
perfume formula. To bottle it, Judith went to the
Haaretz Glass Museum for ideas. She came up
with a now famous replica of an ancient phial,
hand-painted in different hues. Her packaging
also would have to be special, she decided. And
indeed, Judith Muller is the winner of several
international packaging awards.
Altogether, it was a matter of ambition and
hard work. The Judith Muller perfume factory on
Mt. Carmel is a model of a modem industrial
plant. Her husband, David Gathy, is her
managing director. She has an American partner
investor and an American sales manager.

how Successful is the Arab Boycott?
By ANDREA SANDLER
THE ARAB boycott of Israel is not new it's
as old as Israel itself. What is new is that since
1973 it has met with an unusual amount of
success.
Since its inception in 1948 the objective of the
boycott has been to cut off Israel's trade with the
rest of the Middle East and thus choke her
economically. It was an accepted part of the on-
going state of war, and Israel reciprocated by
boycotting Arab goods.
Israel's economy was lucrative enough,
however, to attract foreign investors, and could
secure whatever goods and services needed from

American firms are boycotting l.OW

was little more than a nuisance.
BY THE 1950s, the Arab boycott had taken on
a second dimension: The Central Arab Boycott
Office in Damascus issued orders to its twenty
Arab League member states to discontinue or
refrain from trading with non-Israeli firms that
did business with Israel, had Jewish owners,
officers or directors.

billion by 1980, meaning thousands of jobs for
Americans. But, not all American firms are
welcome to join in these lucrative enterprises.
And not all Americans are eligible to benefit from
the newly created jobs.
The Arab boycott has shifted into third gear. It
was decided by the Arab boycott offices that
Arab firms would no longer do business with
firms that transact business with blacklisted
firms.
IT IS now estimated that there are 3,000
American firms boycotting 2,000 firms, most of
them American, blacklisted by one or more of the
Arab boycott offices. An American firm, in order
to do business with an Arab country or firm, must
meet certain requirements: they may not do
business with Israel, have "Zionist connections,"
or do business with any firm blacklisted for any

reason by the Arab boycott offices.
There are also instances where Jews are being
eased out of visible, top positions in companies in
order to be more attractive to Arab concerns or
comply with boycott provisions.
The Standard Dredging Company of Baltimore
is a case in point: The company was involved in
negotiations with the Awal Contracting and
Trading Company, a Middle East company. In a
press release announcing the formation of a joint
business venture, another item was mentioned:
CHAIRMAN of the Board of Directors,
William L. Siskind, a Jew, resigned from his post.
In agreement with Awal and in consideration for
the establishment of the jointly owned company,
Siskind agreed to establish a voting trust for a
period of two years for the 200,000 shares he held
in Standard. The holder of the voting trust is
Milby D. Pickell, general manager of Awal. The
voting trust gave Pickell effective operative

control of Standard. In addition, Awal loaned
Standard $750,000. When the question of possible
anti-Semitism was raised to Siskind by a
Baltimore reporter, he denied it.
Enforcement of Arab boycott regulations,
however, is arbitrary. A firm boycotted by one
Arab country may be doing millions of dollars of
business with another. Chase Manhattan Bank,
the major fiscal agent for Israel (it handles the
issue of Israel Bonds), does extensive business in
Arab nations.
HILTON HOTELS can be found in Tel Aviv,
Damascus and Cairo. British Leyland, a firm
previously blacklisted for business dealings with
Israel, was mysteriously dropped from the
boycott list by the Central Arab Boycott Office,
even though it still shares in joint licensing
ventures with Israel.

enough, an Israeli official commented, they will
forgo the boycott provisions. So far, it does not
seem to be hurting Israel economically, except
perhaps in the petrochemical industry, which is
tied to Arab nations.
But, the same official continued, there is a
dangerous self-imposed boycott going on in the
United States, where companies will anticipate
boycott criteria and meet it even before they are
asked to comply. They have done so on the
assumption that it is the only way they can do
business with the Arabs.
IN REALITY, many Arab countries do not
enforce their own boycott rules, and Arao
businessmen have been known to back down
when met with the slightest resistance.
The United States government, a1 the in-
sistence of interested parties and 'ndmduab,u
responding to the Arab blacklisting of Amencan
Jews and American firms. The Export
Administration Act. as revised recently by
the government, states that it is the policy of the
United States "to oppose restrictive trade
practices or boycotts fostered or imposed by
foreign countries against other countries friendly
to the United States."
Furthermore, the Act prohibits any exporters
or firms involved in export to comply with
boycott regulations. And a United States firm
boycotting another United States firm in con,.
pliance with a foreign boycott may be in violation
of the U.S. antitrust laws. The Act also require,
that all boycott requests be reported to the
Secretary of Commerce, but this is not always the
case.

Department has filed a civil antitrust suit against
Bechtel Corporation, a construction firm charged
with violating U.S. laws by refusing to sub-
contract its Mideast work to U.S. concerna

Jewish citizens of basic human rights and, at the
game time, from the right to emigrate should not
be viewed with equanimity by civilized men. Let
no one be misled by the appearance of peaceful
existence that one sees in a synagogue in Bagh-
dad. The real suffering is in the homes of that
community, which has been systematically pau-
perized by the Iraqis. The cries of the captive
jews should touch the hearts and minds of decent
men. It is gratifying to see the stand on human
rights the Carter Administration has taken. Every
means of pressure should be brought to bear on
the Iraqis and the Syrians to honor the human
rights of their Jewish citizens and, particularly,
their right to emigrate.

several discussions about a settlement of the
problem of the Arab refugees in the Middle East.
Often, compensation to Arab refugees was dis-
cussed as one part of an overall settlement. I do
not envy the Palestinian refugees. They suffered,
and they are entitled to whatever humanity can
do for them to compensate for their losses. But
whatever the final settlement may be, the State
Department should never overlook the plight of
the Jewish refugees from Arab lands. They tost a
great deal and, by many accounts, they left
behind much more than the Palestinian refugees
did. Jewish refugees are entitled to compensation
for their assets, just as much as the Arab refugees
are. The State Department should actively seek
to incorporate in any "just" settlement of the
Middle East problem terms that bind the Arab
governments to provide compensation to Jewish

refugees who originate from Arab lands and who
now live in Israel. The State Department should
press for a change to the one-sided claims for
compensation made by Palestinian refugees and
for an equally adequate compensation for the
Jewish refugees from Arab lands who live now in
Israel.
3. ON A MORE local level, many Jews from
Arab lands are now U.S. citizens. Most of them
left behind all of their belongings in order to save
their lives. The majority left behind relatives in
Arab lands and are not free to speak up, for fear of
Arab retaliation. Whatever the case may be, the
usurped rights of these individuals should be a
major issue of concern of the U.S. Congress and
should be brought up by the State Department in
its dealings with Arab governments.

poration waa acting in concert with other firms,
won its case, and others will be unable to
cooperate with the boycott even though they
believe such cooperation is worth billions of
dollars in business with Arab nations. In
December, 1975, Arthur Burns, chairman of the
Federal Reserve, instructed its member banks to
refrain from issuing letters of credit to American
firms doing business with Arab concerns which
have discriminatory provisions in them.
There was such an uproar from the State
Department, which thought economic sanctions
against the boycott would hurt political
negotiations, and the Departments of Treasury
and Commerce, which feared the loss of billions of
dollars in trade, that Burns reissued a softened
statement to the member banks expressing
discouragment of the practice, rather than legal
obligation to desist.
____**%"
MANY IN the Congress and in the indivKhial
states do not think that the United States
government is doing enough about the boycott.
They say Carter Administration policies are
contradictory condemning the boycott on one
hand, as in the case of President Ford s
November, 1975, chastisement of boycott
compliance, and encouragement of it on the other
through the practices and policies of the
Departments of Treasury and Commerce.
Elizabeth Holtzman (D., Bklyn.) and Peter
Rodino (D., N.J.). along with 60 cosponsors, have
offered a bill in Congress which would prohibit
any participation by American companies in
boycott aspects which deal with discrimination
against American firms or citizens, and would
provide civil and criminal penalties.
Sen. Abraham Ribicoff ID.. Conn.) has offered
a bill which would cut tax benefits for companies
dealing with the Arabs in compliance with th.
boycott against Israel in any of its aspects.
THIS TAX cut refers to the tax benefit.
American firms receive on foreign source incomes
as an incentive to invest in foreign markets and
an incentive, Sen. Ribicoff added, to comply with
Arab boycott restrictions. It is, he said
destructive to American foreign and domestic
trade.
New York, Illinois, and most recently
Maryland, have passed their own state laws m
the interest of protecting their citizens and
companies from discriminatory practices.
The Administration's policy is to discoura
the discrimination of American Jews and
American businesses. But, it views the boycott as
a regrettable feature of the Arab-Israeli situation
and one which can be subordinated in the quest of
business with the Arab nations.

Out of Chanukah

Jews to realize that they, too, are
WASHINGTON The Bnai
B'rith Youth Organization is
campaigning to take all signs of
Christmas out of Chanukah and
reestablish the festival of lights
as a major Jewish holiday cele-
brating Jewish awareness and
the rebirth of the Jewish State.
Rabbi Mordecai Schreiber,
BBYO Jewish education director,
says two 20th century "miracles"
the American transformation
of Chanukah into a substitute for
Christmas and the Zionist
establishment of the State of
Israel need to be sorted out if
Chanukah is to become a
meaningful part of the Jewish
calendar. He admits his
definition of a "miracle" is very
flexible.
A MIRACLE, according to
Rabbi Schreiber, is "a half-and-
half deal between man and God.
You don't just pray for one. You
help make it happen. The Mac-
cabees helped make it happen. So
did the early Zionists. So did our
own well-meaning parents and
grandparents right here in
America. But the time has now
come for us to pull off one of our
own doing."
Rabbi Schreiber characterizes
the American use of Chanukah as
a Jewish answer to Christmas as
"The Miracle of the Electric
Menorah." He says it all started
with the Chanukah bush or,
rather, the Christmas tree.
As Jews became more at home
in American society, they felt a
need to come up with something
to match the magic and excite-
ment of Christmas. In the 1950s,
some enterprising Jews invented
the Chanukah bush, an ersatz
Christmas tree.
SINCE THE bush was too
blatant to fool anyone who chose
not to be fooled, the same people
invented the electric menorah.
The little jar of oil that burned
miraculously for eight days at the
Maccabees' victory was replaced
by an electrified winter lighting
effect in the Jewish living room
window, yet another Jewish
answer to Christmas.
The new "miracle" Rabbi
Schreiber and BBYO want to
effect is transformation of
Chanukah, the festival of lights,
into a counter-assimilation "fes-
tival of englightenment" cele-
brating Jewish awareness.
Just as the Maccabees realized
that more and more of their
people were becoming assim-
A*k*

^\^^.r^r^

a minority culture constantly
losing ground, says Rabbi
Schreiber.
"Chanukah should become a
celebration of both the victory of
the ancient Maccabees and the
triumph of their present-day
descendants, who brought about
the rebirth of the State of I srael.
WRITING IN The Shofar,
BBYO's newspaper, Rabbi
Schreiber called upon the
organizations' 40,000 teen-age
members to formulate programs
during the Chanukah ,
which wiD expose problem,,
assimilation and explore meth
of meeting the modern
challenge.
He believes that adding
dimension to the celebration i
Chanukah will help transform]
from a minor festival where I
get eight presents into a t
Jewish awareness holiday, ,
kindling the original spirit oft
Maccabees and returni
Chanukah to its true purpose
