Wend of Begin. He was to
provide the Prime Minister with
detailed reports on the progress
of the Cairo meeting and will be
receiving detailed instructions
directly from Begin.
BEN-ELISSAR should cut an
impressive figure in the Egyptian
capital. Six feet tall, slim but
broadshouldered with black hair
and a meticulously groomed
black beard, he is witty,
ingratiating and carries himself
with dignity. He made friends
easily with the Egyptian aides
who accompanied Sadat to
Politically, Ben-Elissar has
always been a Herat 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 1966, Ben-
Elissar was an operative of
Massad, 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 Herat's headquarters.
His second in the Cairo talks
was to be Meir Rosenne, legal
adviser to the Foreign Ministry
and an old friend. Both men
studied political science at the
Paris Sorbonne in the 1960s and
both worked part-time at the
Israeli Embassy in Paris under

Consul in New York in t.

of the Geneva conference,

lowever, Begin sharply de-
pinced the Soviet Union's
pegative" attacks on Sadat,
hereby it was aligning itself

king Israel's destruction.
BEGIN HOPED that Syria,
despite her breach with Cairo,
would nevertheless attend the
peace talks, and that even if
Syria stayed away, Jordan would
participate. "When we talk to
King Hussein we shall have
many offers for him," he said
when asked about territorial
compromises on the West Bank.
However, if Israel and Egypt
were left to negotiate alone, apart
from the co-chairmen of the
Geneva conference, then they
would have to decide whether
such talks would be defined as a
Geneva conference or in some
other way. "But we shall know
about it in the next few weeks,"
he said.
On the basics of a settlement,
Begin reiterated his distaste for
international guarantees for
Israel's security. "In our ex-
perience, there is no international
guarantee that can guarantee an
international guarantee," he said,
citing a string of historical
precedents from pre-war
Czechoslovakia, to the tripartite
agreement in the Middle East in
the early 1950s and assurances

Greater Fort
Israel, Egypt Key to Peace
A separate peace between Israel and Egypt would mean the
end of war in the Middle East.
This view was expressed here last week by Leon Dulzin
chairman and treasurer of the Jewish Agency for Israel and
chairman of Israel's Liberal Party. The Liberals are constituents
of Prime Minister Menachem Begins coalition government.
WHILE ISRAEL wants "total peace," meaning peace with
all of its Arab neighbors, Dulzin told a reporter for the Fort
Lauderdale News who had come to interview him, preceding his
address to the Federation/UJA major gifts dinner in the
Woodmont Country Club on Dec. 6, Israel will conclude a peace
with Egypt which, he added, would be "the beginning of peace
m the Middle East.
The dinner, which served to launch the Federations 1978
UJA campaign, was attended by some 100 guests whose girt
announcements amounted to the highest since a UJA campaign
got underway here 10 years ago. This years UJA goal is w.a

over navigation in the Tiran
Straits in 1956.
HIS BRIEFEST reply was
when asked what he meant by
readiness to deal with "the true
representatives" of the Pales-
tinian Arabs. He said simply:
"We shall find them."
Clearly satisfied with His
welcome in Britain on the first
official visit by an Israeli Prime
Minister, Begin said that at least
"something" of the spirit of the
years of the Balfour Declaration
may have been achieved in terms
of deeper understanding between
the British and Jewish peoples.
Despite his illness, Begin had a
90-minute meeting with top level
representatives of American
Jewish organizations who came
to consult with him about the
latest Mideast developments.
Among them were Rabbi
Alexander Schindler, president of
the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Or-
ganizations; Mrs. Charlotte
Jacobson, chairman of the World
Zionist Organization-American
Section; Frank Lautenberg,
president of the United Jewish
Appeal; Max Fisher, chairman of
the Jewish Agency Board of
Governors; Jerold Hoffberger,
president of the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds;
and Yehuda Hellman, Presidents
Conference executive director.
Sholom Sisterhood
Adopts Russian
Jewish Family
Temple Sholom Sisterhood of
Pompano Beach has voted to
"adopt" Cherna Gershovna
Goldart and her student
daughter, Dalina, both of whom
have been refused Soviet visas to
emigrate to Israel.
The adoption program, ac-
cording to Ester Cannon,
president, and Gertrude Millman,
social action chairman, comprises
a heavy writing campaign by
Sisterhood members to Goldart
to assure her of continuous
American support of her efforts
to go to Israel. Sholom Sister-
hood said the letters "will serve
notice to Soviet authorities that
the world outside of Russia is
demonstrating that Mrs. Goldart
has Western connections."
Letters sent directly to Soviet
officials also will be mailed
urging that visas be issued.
GOLDART is an engineer
physicist, a graduate of the
University of Tomsk, and since
1975 has three times been denied
exit visas.
Cannon and Millman also urge
that young students in the Pom-
pano Beach community write to
Goldart's 18-year-old daughter.
Contact Millman for the address.
For UJA Dinner
Fort Lauderdale Correspondent
The Jewish Federation's 1978 "Man of the Year Dinner" with
philanthropist and author Samuel J. Goldfarb as guest of honor is
"the best-at tended affair of its kind" since a man of the year award
was first given three years ago, it was reported this week by Charles
Locke, the UJA general chairman.
Locke made his report following discussions with Mr. and Mrs.
Leo Goodman and Sen. and Mrs. Samuel L. Greenberg, the Man of the
Year Dinner chairpersons.
THE DINNER will take place
Saturday, Jan. 14 in the main
ballroom of Pier 66, starting with
a 6:30 p.m. reception. Atten-
dance is on the basis of a SI ,000
minimum contribution to the
Federation's 1978 UJA cam-
paign. The dinner committee is
made up of 75 of the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish community's
leaders. Mr. and Mrs. Samuel M.
Soref are serving as honorary
chair-persons. Soref was the Fed-
eration's 1977 many of the year.
Israel Ambassador to the
United Nations Chaim Herzog
will be the guest speaker. The
Ambassador, one of Israel's prin-
cipal spokesmen, has made in-
teresting personal history over
the past month since the Sadat
Begin talks in Jerusalem. In
addition to calling on the UN to
cease its interminable passage of
anti-Israel resolutions and to
enter into the spirit of harmony
generated by the Sadat visit to
Jerusalem, Herzog has had a flow
of calls from scores of his fellow
diplomats congratulating Israel
for its part in the events
surrounding the Egyptian Presi-
dent's visit. He is expected to
make a major address here.
Goldfarb, whose 75th birthday
coincides with the dinner in his
honor, is as much a writer, author
and philosopher as he is a
businessman and industrialist
or was. Although he retired
formally at age 39, he is not
known to have had an idle day
since. Two things are foremost in
his life, he oays. One is his wife,
Celia. The other is the United
Jewish Appeal. He calls the UJA
his "magnificent obsession" and
has given it over $1 million rep-
resenting 75 percent of all his
philanthropic gifts. Henry
Montor, one of the chief founders
of the UJA in 1939, and the man
who served as its executive head
until he moved over in 1951 to
establish State of Israel Bonds,
has said of Goldfarb that "You,
more than any other man in
America, established the prin-
ciple that we owe a tithe of our
possessions to our brothers ...
The Jewish community in this
country and the people of Israel
owe you a deep debt of

Dear Sam:
That you have reached
that Biblical "three score
years and ten" is only a sur-
prise because your youthful
appearance and conduct belie
it. That you may be granted
to reach the four score years
of special strength is cer-
tainly to be expected. That
you have lived a dozen life-
times already, your personal
history demonstrates.
There is only one Sam
Goldfarb! It is true that we
human beings differ among
ourselves and that there are
no two of us alike, but there
are many who fall into
similar patterns. You have
created a pattern of your
own. I have met hundreds

Jerusalem, Cairo And
Fort Lauderdale: A Warning
A prominent South Florida Jewish leader put it
pointedly and plainly the other day when he told a
meeting of Fort Lauderda'e. Miami, Hollywood and Palm
Beach Jewish Federation laymen and executives, "Let'9
not get carried away with the euphoria of Sadat's visit to
Jerusalem and the preliminary talks currently under way
in Cairo between representatives of Egypt and Israel.
"Many things can still go wrong," he warned. "Israel
and Egypt are still holding to their basic positions. But of
one thing we can be certain. Sadat has taken the issue of
Mideast peace (a reconvened Geneva conference, a Pales-
tinian state, the role of the PLO) out of the hands of
President Carter and put it back where it belongs in the
Middle East.
"In the meantime." he added, "and until peace finally
comes, we have to keep our powder dry. Peace is not
necessarily around the corner."
All in all, these are keen observations and wise words.
Sadat's going to Jerusalem, Israelis going to Cairo,
Begin's visit to London and now to Washington have

All in all, these are keen observations and wise words.
Sadat's going to Jerusalem, Israelis going to Cairo,
Begin's visit to London and now to Washington have
surely created an air of optimism. But, as that South
Florida Jewish leader noted, "the atmospherics and the
hard facts don't exactly match."
All this is taking place just as the Fort Lauderdale
Jewish Federation's 1978 UJA is getting under way. It
would be a calamity a pity, surely if undue optimism
replaced sober reality, and the campaign started to lag
and suffer because of it.
What are the hard facts to be dealt with, and kept
squarely in mind?
The exodus of Jews from the Soviet Union to Israel is
at its highest point to date (see the story on this on
another page), which means that dollars are needed to pay
for their movement and then their reception, resettlement
and absorption. The dollars must come via the UJA.
Israel has no dollars for the absorption of present and
recent waves of immigration because its financial
resources go largely for the maintenance of its military
strength. If Israel were not so strong. President Sadat
would not be suing for peace even in the face of Egypt's
broad poverty and worsened economic plight.
\\ ( in Fort Lauderdale can make a solid contribution
to the achievement of peace by maintaining and increasing
our support of the Jewish Federation's UJA campaign. It
is this support of UJA and a parallel vigilance to guard
against backsliding by the Carter Administration that
will make it possible tor Israel to achieve the shalom I hat
means thai.
Putting Accent Where it Belong*
ISRAEL'S WARS have not
solved her basic problems with
the Arabs because they have
never been brought to term. A
nation must be defeated at home,
not just on the battlefield, and
Israel has limited her victories to
the battlefield, as in the case of
the 1967 war.
Or else, her victories have been
limited for her by outside powers
whose interests in the conflict
required that there be a draw
situation, as in the case of the
1973 war, when Henry Kissinger
warned us of the tragic con-
sequences of yet another Arab
humiliation and so commanded
Israel not to win.
FOR THIRTY years of her
history now. this no-win/ no-lose
limbo has made of Israel a
garrison state, with butter
coming tragically high t
expense of guns.
For a while, we have been,
to revel in Israel's ^J
cunning with guns-not onll

that Israel acquitted herself

Always remembering Syria's
aggressive intransigence, begin-
ning in 1948, Israelis would
doubtless oppose Syrian
proximity which enhances her
influence and power on the West
Bank. If there is to be a separate
Palestinian entity, Israel would
naturally prefer it to be linked
with Jordan and Israel.
Because of this, former Israeli
Foreign Minister, Abba Eban,
has been advocating a "Benelux"
Federation, comprising Israel,
Jordan and the West Bank, for
more than a decade a formula
which recognizes the value of
economic interdependence.
THE HARD PLO line at
Tripoli, where the so-called
"moderate" Arafat participated
along with George Habash, the
ultra-radical Popular Front for

leader, revealed to those willing
to perceive reality that the PLO
is still rejecting 242 and peace
with Israel.

declaring the Palestine

tinian people.
"As far as Israel knows,
Jordan is still not ready to act as
the representative of the West
Bank," Dayan said.
THAT, he added, was the
reason why Vance went to
Jordan. Asked how Israel would
react if the PLO showed up at
Cairo to occupy the "seat
reserved for them by the
Egyptians," Dayan reported,
"we would not be there."
He ruled out the possibility of
a renewed partition of the West
Bank because "it is not
workable." He claimed that
nobody, "neither in the Arab
world nor among the American
officials dealing with the
problem," is now suggesting a
partition or talking in terms of
partition as a basis for a peace
Dayan said, however, that if a
final settlement on the West
Bank is reached and an agree-
ment on Israel's final borders is
signed, "then there could be a
discussion about the future of
Jewish settlements which might
find themselves on the Arab side
of the line."
Diplomats, and the media they
influence, should shed their wish-
ful perceptions.
The White House campaign to
convert the PLO was one of many
illusory objectives which
motivated U.S. policy. These
included the fiction of a mono-
lithic Arab world, the obsession
with Arab unity and the Geneva
conference as ends in themselves,
and the notion that the Soviet
Union could be a cooperative and
constructive partner for peace.
The PLO's hard line and its
declaration against any peace
with Israel will not ingratiate it
with West Bank Palestinians,
who remember PLO bloodbaths
in Jordan and Lebanon. Despite
PLO election gains in the West
Bank, we suspect that few West
Bank Arabs would vote to share
their land with the Arab refugees.
SYRIA'S ROLE as the spoiler
is not easily forgotten. She was
the last to negotiate an armistice
agreement in 1948. She insisted
on demilitarized zones which she
used as bases to claim riparian
rights in the Jordan River and
the Sea of Galilee in order to
challenge Israel's Huleh develop-
ment and overall water plan.
She tried to divert Israel's
water resources. She shot at
Israeli settlers and fishermen.
She dispatched terrorists into
Israel's farmlands. She sought to
bait Nasser into war in 1965.
unsuccessfully, and in 1967,
successfully. And she
collaborated to her defeat in
the Yom Kippur attack.
With that record, Israel is not
likely to embrace Syria as a
trustee in the West Bank.

JDC Adopts $39 Million Budget
Joint Distribution Committee
has adopted a S39.386.500 budget
for 1978 for wide ranging health,
welfare, educational and other
programs overseas and elected
Donald M. Robinson of Pitts-
burgh as JDC president, suc-
ceeding Jack D. Weiler of New
York. Weiler, a prominent
realtor, philanthropist and com-
munal leader, was elected
chairman of the Board of
Directors. It is the largest budget
since 1948 when JDC income rose
to $72 million, Robinson said.
Ralph I. Goldman, executive
vice president, in a year-end
report, stated that the JDC aided
more than 450,000 men, women
and children in some 25 countries
overseas during 1977. Expen-
ditures for the year are expected
to total about *37,000,000, he
said. More than 100 members of
the JDC Board of Directors
attended the annual business
meeting here at the 60 East Club
in midtown Manhattan.
ROBINSON was officially
installed at a dinner meeting at
the New York Hilton. Weiler,
who installed Robinson, was
honored at the dinner on the
Some Chanukah Afterthoughts
MY GLORIOUS BROTHERS by Howard Fast. N.Y.: Bonim
Books. Hebrew Publishing Co., 280p.. $4.95, paperback.
THIS IS A reprint with new illustrations of the long
unavailable hardcover edition originally published in 1948.
Fast's re-creation of the story of the Maccabees has been trans-
lated into eight languages and has gone through ten printings.
For teen readers, this is the telling of the Chanukah story by
Simon. Judah Maccabees brother. It attempts a personal,
humanistic view of Judah and his brave, determined family.
THE HANUKKAH STORY by Marilyn Hirsch. New York:
Bonim Books, Hebrew Publishing Co., $7.95.
NEED A LAST minute Chanukah gift? Why not give a
book. Several books for children make great gifts for the
holiday. First, is a well-illustrated story of the struggle of Judah
Maccabee and his small army against the overwhelming might
of the Syrians.
Most people think of Chanukah in terms of the miracle of the
jug of oil which burned for eight days even though there was
only enough oil to light the Temple menorah for one day. Hirsch.
however, feels that the story of the Maccabean struggle for reli-
gious freedom is often underplayed.
She asks 'thinking about the story of Judah and the Mac-
cabees, isn't their victory a miracle, too?"
IN THIS endeavor, Hirsch, illustrator of The House on the
Roof: a Sukkot Story, has done considerable research in history
and archaeology. Her vivid color illustrations covering each
page accurately depict the costume and architecture of the
times. Aimed at children ages five through nine, The Hanukkah
Story brings to its readers a richer understanding of Chanukah.

President Anwar Sadat of Egypt
for his courageous moves toward
peace with Israel.
"Sadat, alone in an Arab sea of
100 million people in 21 countries
had the courage to seize history
by the scruff and force the issue
of peace with Israel to the top of
the ag nda." she said.
In his acceptance speech.
Robinson, who is the seventh
president of the JDC since it was
founded in 1914. called JDC a
lifeline of help and hope, of rescue
and renewal, a lifeline linking the
Jew who cares with the Jew who
needs care."
HE NOTED that budget
priorities for 1978 included the
transmigrant program, the
package program, a continuation
of programs in North Africa and
the Middle East and the opening
of new ones, especially in Arab
countries that were previously
closed to the JDC. and in Israel.
"The new JDC in Israel is an
American social service agency
full of experimentation and in-
novation." Robinson said. A
catalyst which has long since
given up its role in creating a net-
work of Malben homes and.
instead, is now moving to help
the people of Israel develop com-
munity-based health and welfare
services. "
A highlight of the dinner
meeting was the presentation to
Weiler of the JDC "Maasim
Tovim" award, the first of what
is expected to become an annual
presentation. "Maasim Tovim
means "good deeds" m Hebrew.
Monroe Goldwater, JDC vice
president and a long-time friend
of Weiler. made the presentation.
WEILER expressed his deep
thanks to the JDC and to the
guests who had assembled to
honor him. In honoring him,
Weiler said they were really
honoring the JDC. "For it is the
JDC which gives purpose to our
life, which gives meaning to
being Jewish. And that is why
tonight is a joy to me. Because
the Joint understands its purpose
and lives for tomorrow. We are
like a Jewish fire brigade doing
whatever is necessary to help our
people in trouble."
In presenting the budget
Robinson informed the board
members that the budget rep-
resented the joint deliberations of
professional and lay leaders and
was based on need in relation to
available resources.
Reflecting rising costs and
inflation as well as increased
needs and new programs, the
budget of almost every country
shows an increase. The largest
single country item is $8.9 million
for Israel. If this figure were to
reflect the JDC share of the ORT
(Organization for Rehabilitation
through Training) vocational
training program in Israel, the
budget for Israel would total over
$10.5 million. Robinson said.
CARE OF transmigrants,
mainly from the Soviet Union.
will require over $5 million.
Robinson noted. However, he
added, most of that amount will
be refunded by the U.S. Refugee
Program. Another $3.5 million
will go to Rumania and Yugo-
slavia. $3.5 million will go for
programs in Western Kurope and
Arabic speaking countries n1
get about 2.6 million. *

As in the life of all Jewish com-

Kippur War was a year of
trauma. Don Robinson was
president of the United Jewish
Federation of Greater Pittsburgh
when the war broke out. That
evening he called a meeting for
the following Sunday morning to
"mobilize our forces."
"IT WAS an emotionally
charged time," Robinson said.
"There was the underlying fear
whether Israel would survive. In
a few moments that experience
taught us what Israel really
means to us. If Israel had not
survived, there is a real question
of whether the Jewish people
could survive. Spiritually if not

DONALD and Sylvia Robin-
son met at a wedding in Pitts-
burgh when he was a Lieutenant
Junior Grade in the Navy. "She
must have been captivated by the
uniform." he said. "We were
married two years4ater."
Robinson joined the Navy
when he was 17 years old. "I had
just graduated from high school
it was in 1943 and I knew
what anti-Semitism meant. I
remember hearing Father
Coughlin's broadcasts and
feeling that I was different, one of
a special minority."
The Navy recognized Robin-
son's abilities, sent him through
college at the University of South
Carolina, where he graduated and
received his commission when he
was 19 years old. From there he
was sent to the Harvard
Graduate School of Business
THE YOUNG naval man
became a supply officer assigned
to a troop transport; he made five
trips to Europe. In 1946 at the
age of 20 he was discharged.
Don Robinson started in busi-
ness with his father and brother,
selling health and beauty aids. In
the early 1960's, they began the
first White Cross Drug Store. By
1965 with 50 stores the company
went public; it was a revo-
lutionary new idea in discounting
drugs, prescriptions and health
and beauty aids.
White Cross Stores merged
with Revco Drug Stores in 1972.
In addition to Revco, he has
many other business interests,
including real estate develop-

"They are special. We're a close-

In 1974 Donald Robinson won
the UJF Emanuel Specter Award
for "vision, leadership and
devotion to causes which serve
the entire Greater Pittsburgh
community." He continues to be
active in the Pittsburgh
Federation which he credits with
preparing him for his role in
national Jewish leadership.
"I LOOK forward to the
coming three years," said
Robinson. "And at the same time
I have strong feelings of rotating

He pointed out that JDC's
"antennas" should be up at all
times to anticipate probable
Jewish trouble spots; "also it is
vital that JDC play a major role
in helping strengthen Jewish
community infrastructures
outside the United States."
The new JDC president
believes that JDC programs
should continue to be "trans-
ferred to local community
auspices as quickly as is con-
sistent with responsible func-
tioning." Robinson expresses
"hope for peace in the Middle
East which would have far-
reaching benefits to world Jewry.
But, in a world of turbulences
which endlessly seem to engulf
Jewish life, JDC's mission
unfortunately is far from com-
plete: the relief, reconstruction,
and even rescue of Jewish life."

If and when President Carter's
energy policy is finalized
(possibly before the Christmas
congressional recess), then fiscal
questions concerning the new
coal and tax groundrules will be
answered and "the juices will

The biggest problem the
energy policy faces is a take-off
on the old "you first. Alphonse"
routine. "The Senate and the

Lakeland native considering his
reservations? "I vote my con-
science," he said, after con-
sidering his constituency.
His constituents in South
Florida frequently make the same
mistake that this reporter made
during a summer trip to
Washington. Identifying more
closely geographically and
religiously with Florida's other
senator. Dick Stone. I had con-
centrated on Stones office and
IT WAS Chiles" gracious offer
of help during my northern trek
that jarred me. Why had I not
thought to arrange for an inter-
view with both senators? Chiles
is aware of South Florida's close
attachment to Stone and the
context in which it occurs. And
he understands.
If Sen. Stone's office lacks a
door as symbolic of government
in the sunshine, he and Chiles
share the same philosophy. It
was Chiles, so influenced by
Florida's government in the sun-
shine law, who introduced a
federal sunshine bill. Well
received in Congress, the law has
been less enthusiastically taken
on the agency scene.
Following "the letter but not
the spirit of the law," some
government agencies are
ignoring the bottom line of the
public's greater interest and
invoking the law's exemptions.
In the eight months since the
bill's passage, there have been no
tests of the law's might.
CHILES challenges the
President's "absence of leader-
ship" in that direction, as well as
the press" lack of support. Would
the news media rather have
"leaks," asks Chiles, instead of
rightfully gathering information
at what should be open meetings?
Chiles' sunshine bill spawned
another idea which died an early
death. Acknowledging that it is
"working against human nature"
for any group to police itself.
Chiles proposed an ethics com-
mission made up of presidential
appointees to oversee the
executive, legislative and judicial
branches. Reluctantly. Chiles
says that the "highwater mark
on ethics." having been reaci.ed
with Watergate, is receding.
The "cost of democracy" is
that government maintains the
status-quo until hit by some
natural disaster. "Since our
government changes directly
through crisis." we will wallow in
complacency until the next big
shakeup. Koreagate. perhaps.

alternates between enthusiasm
and frustration." No longer
afflicted with the "freshman
shingles," a rash common to
junior congressmen. Chiles says.
not in a shy way. that "there are
areas where I can make
something move."' With power
spread around a bit better
nowadays, the new Southerners
are "'being allowed in the main-
stream." he says half facetiously.
If the old Senate strata of
power were still operative
junior and senior senators and
then the "king-barons" Chiles
estimates that he would not be
considered a junior senator.

by Britain to oppose interference
by the Kuropean Economic Com-

peace negotiations.
The pledge, in an after dinner
speech by Prime Minister James
Callaghan, followed an appeal by
the Israeli leader that the
Kuropean nations should not
make proclamations and sug-
gestions which might endanger
Israel's population.

should give the forthcoming
negotiations between Israel and
Egypt a chance to succeed. He
asked Callaghan, who went to
Brussels right after their
meeting, to assure his EEC col-
leagues that Israel would do her
best to make an agreement
In reply, Callaghan told Begin
he would tell his EEC partners
that at this moment, countries
which were not directly con-
cerned in the Arab-Israel conflict,
should refrain from stridently
advancing solutions."
Callaghan's positive reaction
set the seal on what both the
British and the Israeli par-

outstandingly successful visit

that Sadat's visit to Jerusalem
had been a spiritual venture."
Ghorbal had watched as the
Chanukah candles had been lit
and the audience sang the
blessings. "It isn't the military
victory we celebrate but the
spiritual victory of the Mac-
cabees." Teplitz said.
Rabbi Arthur Lelyveld. the
SCA's first vice president, in
thanking Ghorbal for his address,
said Sadat should receive the
Nobel Peace Prize. Lelyveld
stressed that American Jews
believed that forming Mideast
policy should be left for Israel
and Egypt to be worked out.

seeking religious identification
are related to the attempts of
Jews to learn more about
Judaism. Judaism is a universal

RABBIS IN America are
prohibited from visiting Russia
for the purpose of lecturing or
teaching about Judaism: the
training of rabbis in Russia is
prohibited. It is obvious that the
Soviet government is seeking to
destroy Judaism. The amazing
thing is that Jewish conscious-
ness is growing there and that
world Jewry is dedicated to
easing the plight of the 3,000.000
Jews of the USSR.
As throughout Jewish history,
whenever Jewish rights are
trampled upon, the rights of

Many Americans realize that
helping the Jews of the Soviet
Union to achieve their human,
civil and religious rights helps to
advance the human and civil
rights of all Soviet citizens. The
dogmatic atheism of Russia is
spreading throughout the
territories controlled by the Com-

believers in freedom, is to oppose
all dogmatic systems, and permit
all men to seek truth as they will,

THE ZOA campaign platform
calls on the uncommitted voters
of the Zionist movement to
support the ZOA as a means of
reinforcing the new leadership
chosen by the people of Israel."
The ZOA feels the recent
elections in Israel were a vin-
dication of the activist Zionism
that the ZOA has represented
since the days of Louis D.
Hrandeis. Stephen Wise and
Abba Hillel Silver, which led to
the foundation of the State of
Israel." The platform reads. "Our
historic general Zionist faith in
liberal democracy and the prin-
ciples of free enterprise has
triumphed in Israel."
"A vote for the ZOA." states
the platform. "will assure
responsive leadership in the
World Zionist Organization."

Israel's new government,
THE PLATFORM argues that
ZOA is best equipped to wage the
battle for Israel in America. "We
have repeatedly mobilized public
opinion and warned successive
Administrations in Washington
that a policy of appeasement of
the Arabs is a disservice to
American interests in the Middle
Bast. We were first in alerting
the Jewish community about the
ominous implications of the
energy crisis and have stead-
fastly projected programs and
supported the idea of energy
The platform concludes with a
call to the electorate not to waste
its vote on fringe groups that
spring up" only when World

held, and urges them not to lend
efforts to the fragmentation of
the Zionist movement along
religious lines."

Soviet Jewish Emigration Up
Soviet Jewry Research Bureau of
the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, has reported that
the number of Soviet Jews emi-
grating from the USSR from
January-November, 1977 sur-
passes the number of Jews
allowed to leave in 1976.
Charlotte Jacobson, bureau
chairperson, announced that
from January-November, 1977,
14,798 Soviet Jews have emi-
grated to Israel and elsewhere
while the total allowed to leave in
1976 was 14,213.
"We welcome the increase,"
Jacobson said, "and hope that it
will continue throughout the
coming months. Analysts have
suggested that the increase in
those being allowed to emigrate
in the last few months is due to
countries signing the Helsinki
Final Act, which includes pro-
visions for the frae emigration of
all people."
CONTINUING, she pointed
out: "Though 1977 figures will
surpass last year's total, they do
not approach the peak years of
1972-1973 when more than 66,000
Soviet Jews left the USSR.
Soviet authorities are continuing
harassment against thousands of
Soviet Jewish activists who wish
to leave, many of whom applied
for exit visas more than five
years ago. At the same time anti-
Semitic remarks are carried in the
Soviet media and Soviet Jewish
activist Anatoly Sharansky is
still being held in Moscow's
Lefortovo prison pending com-
pletion of the Soviet authorities'
discussions in Belgrade by those

There are many signs these days
that Egypt has turned the
psychological corner toward
peace with Israel. One such sign
was the little-noticed and until
now unreported event that took
place the afternoon of Nov. 26 in
According to a letter from an
Israeli to a friend in New York,
after Eza'at Elkahaira, the
governmental Cairo Broad-
casting Service, transmitted
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat's speech direct from the
Parliament where he announced
his proposal for the Cairo con-
ference, the announcer said:
"Dear listeners, we will now play
you a beautiful song of peace
which a mother sings to her
child." He identified the song as
Ufi Ruach (Blow, Gentle Breeze).
IT WAS an Israeli song
composed by Issachar Miron to
the poem by Aharon Ashman,
the distinguished doyen of the
Israeli authors. Miron, who
resides in New York, was former

U.S. Tourism To Israel Increases
"More Americans visited Israel
in the first 10 months of 1977
than in the whole of 1976," it was
announced here by Israel Zuriel,
Israel Commissioner for Tourism
for North America. A total of
233,248 American tourists visited
Israel from Jan. 1-Oct. 31, a 25
percent increase over the same
period of 1976, and 8,000 more
than visited the country in all of
"Israel expects a record one
million visitors this year, and we
project an even larger number in
1978, our 30th anniversary year,"
Zuriel said. "This factor, linked
with the hopefully successful
moves towards a permanent
Middle East peace settlement,
should have very positive effects
in encouraging increased tourism
to Israel in 1978."

Begin Receives Chanukah Cake
Prime Minister Begin returned to
^.10* Downing Street for the last
round of talks, Prime Minister
James Callaghan had a surprise
waiting for him. It was a large
decorated Chanukah cake,
prepared by a Jewish baker. It
was inscribed with icing:
"Menachem Shalom. Happy
' r. ,.i___^_r
Chanukah," and decorated with
two white doves. Begin was also
presented with Lord Blake's
biography of Disraeli.
Begin's present to Callaghan
was a set of prints of Old
Jerusalem by artist David
Roberts, and an inscribed copy of
his book. Revolt.
I do not consider the Holocaust
a topic for humor.
Through the years, an un-
savory catalog of "hip" jokes
have accumulated that cruelly
attempt to find humor in the
extermination of six million
Jews. I find this incredibly insen-
sitive. I have never found an iota
of cleverness in any of the quips
about ovens or lampshades.
NOW, OUT of that bulwark of
enlightenment, Harvard Univer-
sity, comes a bit of satire from
the Harvard Lampoon magazine
that I find sickening.
I know it is fashionable in some
circles to be flip about almost any
subject, but I find this piece com-
pletely distasteful and urge you
to write to the Harvard Lampoon
at Harvard University and let
them know that as Jews we
object to sick humor about a sub-
ject so traumatically a part of our
What makes such "satire"
particularly frightening and
nauseating is that there appears
to be a widespread campaign
afoot to trivialize the Holocaust.
THERE HAVE been recent
books that try to raise doubts
that the Holocaust took place at
all. And there are a spate of
"revisionist" histories on Hitler
and his mad henchmen that claim
these monsters never knew what
was going on in Auchwitz,
Buchenwald and the other horror
I say hogwash.
I don't advocate living in the
past or evoking painful memories
needlessly, but I feel strongly
that we should not permit the
Holocaust to become a subject
for jokes. And we certainly
should not allow "satire" of the
Harvard Lampoon ilk to go un-
According to one historian,
"History is the torch that is
meant to illuminate the past to
guard us against the repetition of
our mistakes of other days."
OUR "TORCH" is that there
are six million Jews in the United
States right now, and we should
each be responsible to the
memory of one of the six million
who were exterminated.
A historian also made the point
that those who forget the past are
condemned to live it again.

Rigid Education Qm
System Condemnei
The Florida region of the
Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, the American
Jewish Committee and the
American Jewish Congress
have condemned the recent
action of a majority of the
Florida State Cabinet,
sitting as the State Board
of Education, in which they
voluntarily promulgated a
plan which would impose a
system of rigid racial
quotas on Florida's institu-
tions of higher education.
The groups called upon
state officials to adopt
instead a non-discrim-
inatory affirmative action
plan to aid all economically
and culturally deprived
persons regardless of their
ACCORDING to Richard
Essen, chairman of the Regional
Board of the Anti-Defamation
League, as a spokesman for the
three agencies in this matter,
"the Board of Education's plan
requires that students be ad-
mitted into all public colleges,
universities and graduate schools
in fixed percentages of black
students to white students,
rather than solely upon the
applicants' ability and
qualifications: and further, that
the highly sought-after employ-
ment opportunities in those
institutions be tilled upon racial
preferences, not upon i
skill alone.

financially hard-pressed Jewish
day schools in New York will not
receive a hoped-for reimburse-
ment of about 81 million from the
state as a result of a ruling by the
U.S. Supreme Court.
The court, in a 6 to 3 decision
ruled that a 1972 New York law
that provided about $11 million
to reimburse parochial schools for
the cost of state-mandated
record-keeping and testing
services is unconstitutional. The
court said the law was uncon-
stitutional because "it will of
necessity either have the primary
effect of aiding religion ... or will
result in exessive state involve-
ment in religious affaire."
RABBI Bernard Goldenberg,
associate director of Torah
Umesorah, the National Society
for Hebrew Day Schools, told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency here
the decision was a "bit of a blow"
to the Jewish day schools. He
said he could see "nothing
religious" about keeping atten-
dance records or administering
tests required by the state.
Goldenberg said the day
schools will now have to provide
the funds needed to carry out the
tests and record-keeping required
by the state, leaving less money
for scholarships for children from
poor familes and putting more of
a financial burden on the parents
of students. He noted one
yeshiva in Queens closed recently
and others are having severe
financial trouble.
The 1972 law that was struck
down was passed by the New
York State Legislature after a
federal District Court in 1972
declared unconstitutional a 1970
law providing $28 million a year
to parochial and private schools
to cover record-keeping and test-
ing expenses. The district court
barred payments for the second
half of the 1971-72 achool year.
But the State Legislature
adopted a law which permitted
the schools to file claims for the
second payment thus insuring its
availability until the federal court
decision was appealed and
