with prices ranging from
to over $1,000, most in the
lest ranges. One man pur-
$750 in paintings, and it
waa not unusual to see guests
holding two and three of the oil
and acrylic works as they left the
show. At one time during the
afternoon, sales were so brisk
that purchasers were backed up
in the lobby of the Faber offices
waiting to pay for their selec-
tions. One couple remarked that
they now had more Okun pictures
on their walls than furniture on
the floor.
Okun, whose works are in the
modern vein largley impres-
sionistic and abstract is per-
sonally almost as colorful as his
paintings, and his paintings have
won him the sobriquet "imagin-
ational colorist." Guests who
asked the artist to explain this or
that painting were regaled with
stories that were partly
midrashic, hasidic, drawn from
folklore or out of his own ex-
perience as a boy born on a Baron
de Hirsch settlement in Ar-
gentina, a kid growing up on a
Nebraska farm, a teen-ager
growing to manhood in New
Jersey and Brooklyn, and a
young man who wnt from win-
ning a New York State art com-
petition to a career in the busi-
ness world as a chemicals manu-
facturer and inventor.
At one time or another during
the long afternoon, with Okun
presiding from room to room in
the large office complex, it was a
toss-up whether it was an art
show or a literary soiree. Judging
by the smiles and laughter of the
guests, it was both.

THIS IS one of the best days

remarked. His wife, Joan, who
was a principal organizer of the
show, served during the after-
noon as guide, saleswoman, art
lecturer and hostess.

caught one's eye and held it,

Salute to the Women's Division...
Come Friday, May 5, the women's division of the
Jewish Federation will begin its eighth year of service to
the Fort Lauderdale Jewish community. To be installed at
the division's annual luncheon in Pier 66 will be a new
president, three new vice-presidents, a slate of other of-
ficers and 42 members of a board of directors.
Mitchie Libros, who succeeds Rebecca Hodes in the
presidency, inherits a solid record of achievement and
progress. This past year, for example, the women's UJA
campaign produced a 20 percent increase in raised funds
and many new members. That roster now shows over
2,200 women, membership accruing on the basis of a gift
to the UJA. The least a woman can give to become a
member is a donation of chai, or $18.
Mrs. Libros, who served as the 1977-78 campaign
chairman, notes with pride that gifts in all the categories
rose this past year and that the incoming campaign
chairman has already made plain she hopes to improve the
We salute all of these women for their abiding interest
in and work for the Jewish community and Israel, and for
setting an example of devotion, leadership and as is so
often the case personal and monetary sacrifice. All of us
are stronger for it. May they and we go from
strength to strength in the years ahead.
And the Florida Hadassah
As this issue of The Jewish Floridian comes to you,
400 delegates representing 36,000 members of Hadassah
in Florida are meeting at the Bahia Mar Hotel. On hand to
address the delegates are a national vice-president, a
noted foreign correspondent, and the effective heads of
programs throughout Hadassah's Florida region.
We are delighted that Fort Lauderdale was selected
as the conference site and we greet the delegates as they
deliberate on issues and programs that we know are both
of moment and long-range significance to Israel, America
and the free way of life.
The Florida Hadassah is now 28 years old-and
growing. Hadassah itself is 60 years old. We greet the
parent body and its Florida constituent as dear sisters
whose programs, efforts and achievements have
strengthened the people of Israel and enriched America.
We know of no other group of women more consecrated to
the ideal of humanity, life and freedom. Ladies of
Hadassah: We love you.
Salute to Israel Resnikoff
Israel Resnikoff of Margate has just completed his
fifth term as the area's UJA chairman by taking the
campaign over the top for the fifth year in succession. He
doesn't think that this is unusual or anything to merit
special attention.
When it comes to Israel, he says, there is only one
thing to do: "Work hard and give it your all." Whether
Izzy Resnikoff wants it or not, we salute him.
Here, indeed, is the model of a dedicated UJA cam-
paigner and consecrated Jew. The warmth of the
Resnikoffs' home, the sweetness of Berte Resnikoff and
the humanity of her husband illuminate not only the
Margate community but the lives of all in North Broward
who have had the privilege of knowing this lovely couple.
Here, indeed, are the beautiful people. May their example
serve as a model for each of us.
Deplores Vandalism of Temple
The Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale this week
issued a statement deploring the act of vandalism against Temple
Ohel B'nai Raphael in Lauderdale Lakes. Swastikas and the word
Auschwitz were spray-painted on the temple walls last Wednesday
Irving L. Geiaaer, executive director of the Jewish Federation,
said.'' We deplore this act of vandalism which only testifies to the fact
that there are sick people in society and there are anti-Semitea in
society. Jews most be prepared to speak out and do those things that
are necessary to prevent the propagation of this kind of action."

The following quotations bear on
the Holocaust tragedy.
Mark of Cain
Many have asked. Where was
God during Auschwitz, the most
notorious of German death
camps?" There is no answer to
this, since it is not the question.
The question is, Where was
man?" Auschwitz has not merely
left a mark of Cain on the Ger-
man people but a blot of shame
on the escutcheon of man. Per-
haps not the Jews, but Chris-
tianity, died at Auschwitz.
Max Dimont
They Know What They Did
Why speak of these things?
Only because 25 years later I
simply cannot tell myself nor my
sons that it cannot happen again
I can only tell them that there
was a time of madness and that
some of the Jews of the ghetto

like men. And if it does happen
again, even if there are faint dark
signs that it might happen again.

Redgrave's Espousal of PLO
"For years the enemies of
I srael have sought to draw a false
distinction between anti-
Semitism and anti-Zionism.
Vanessa Redgrave's attempt to
do so at the Academy Awards
presentation underscored her
identification with those who
seek to liquidate the Jewish state
and in so doing to exterminate
the Jewish people.
"The frightful acts of terrorism
committed by the PLO against
innocent civilians as part of its
armed struggle' to purge the
Zionist presence from Palestine'
have horrified the conscience of
all decent people.

The new volume, it is learned
here, will increase the number of
known forced labor camps for
Jews inside and outside Nazi
Germany by 172 from 769 to
941. The number of known con-
centration camps in Austria for

AJComm. to Study 'Holocaust9Impact
How the American television audience reacted
to the NBC series on the Holocaust will be ex-
plored in depth in a study by the American
Jewish Committee.
The four-part television documentary drama,
examining the experiences of two German
families (one Jewish and one Christian) under
Nazi rule froiri 1935 to 1946. was seen on nation-
wide NBC television on four successive nights
this week.
In announcing the study, the American
Jewish Committee pointed out that "there are no
reliable findings on what present-day Americans
think about events in Europe during the Nazi
era "Specifically, we want to find out what
attitudes and feelings are brought to the surface
among both Jews and Christians from watching
these programs."
Some 1,500 members joined Ku Klux Klans in
1976 and 1977, bringing the total membership to
8,000, according to a survey made public by the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith.
The League said the increase, after ten years
of declining enrollment since a 1967 high of
55,000, is "significant but not alarming."
The survey reveals that Klan recruiting ef-
forts are now aimed at high school students and
members of the armed forces, in addition to other
The moderate growth in membership is at-
tributed largely to the adoption of effective pub-
licity techniques by a new generation of Klan
leaders, particularly David E. Duke, a college-
educated, former Nazi enthusiast.
"The Arab oil weapon has lost much of its
thrust today," says Dr. Uzi Arad of Tel Aviv
University's Center for Strategic Studies. Dr.
Arad was addressing the International Col-
loquium on the Middle East and the United
States sponsored by Tel Aviv University's
Shiloah Center for Middle Eastern and African
Dr. Arad explains that due to increased
stockage capacity of oil since the 1973 embargo,
I slight decline in dependence on Arab oil imports
on the part of the OECD relative to 1973, lack of
I Arab control of tanker fleets, the absence of the
[surprise element, the oil sharing mechanism of
the IEA designed to prevent the potential
I damage of selective oil embargo, and the ex-
[tended time lag between declaring an embargo
land its effect being felt, an oil embargo today
I would have little effectiveness.
To be effective, OAPEC would have to cut
[production considerably more than in 1973, but
[that would be costly to the'Arabs and possibly
[dangerous. "The psychological effect of the threat
[of an oil embargo is a much greater weapon than
[the actual oil embargo itself," conclude* Dr.
Ronald J. Weisinger, formerly with the
national United Jewish Appeal, has been named
lenitive directoi of the Jewish Federation of
ellas County, with offices in St. Petersburg.
S. Andhil Fineberg (right) receives the
other hood Award of the National Con-
tnce of Christians and Jews from Dr.
ioid Hyatt, NCCJ president, as part of a
bute to Dr. Fineberg upon his retirement
coordinator of the New York Interracial
iloquy. The NCCJ cited him "for extra-
Unary vision and courageous leadership in
srrehgious affairs.''
"The President of the United States is
spending more time in negotiations than the
President of Egypt. This is exactly what the
Arabs always wanted," Simcha Dinitz, Israeli
Ambassador to the U.S., told 1,000 delegates and
guests to the B'nai B'rith Women International
Convention in Los Angeles.
"The United States has a great role to play as
a mediator, but not as an arbitrator," Ambas-
sador Dinitz said. "There is no doubt that the
United States has a major function in the Middle
East, provided that the U.S. uses all its influence
to get the parties together."
California Gov. Jerry Brown, who also spoke
to the group, addressed himself to the same topic.
"I am very supportive of the efforts of Israel
not to give away anything before it gets to nego-
tiations," he said, "but to go to the peace table
with an open agenda."
Amram M. Ducovny of Cambridge, Mass. has
been appointed vice president for public affairs at
Hrandeis University, effective April 1, 1978.
Mr. Ducovny, who joined the university on
March 1, 1977 as director of public affairs, will be
responsible for developing programs that project
Hrandeis as a quality liberal arts research
university and strengthen the university as a
community of shared interests and goals.
For 20 years previous to joining Brandeis, Mr.
Ducovny served with the American Jewish Com-
mittee in New York as director of publicity for its
nationwide Appeal for Human Relations.
Federation representatives from Chicago,
Boston, Cleveland, Baltimore and New York met
recently with James Mclntyre, Director of the
Federal Office of Management and Budget, to
encourage the Carter Administration to make
greater use of voluntary agencies in shaping its
urban policy and programs.
Sponsored by the Council of Jewish
Federations, the meeting at the Waldorf Astoria
Hotel in New York heard community spokesmen
call for more coordination between the Govern-
ment's social agencies which deal with jobs and
employment, neighborhood stabilization, the
aged. Title XX and the family.
Alfred P. Miller, executive director of the New
York Federation Employment and Guidance
Service, suggested job training should be
targeted toward traditionally unfilled beginning
level jobs rather than being geared to the creation
of new and unnecessary ones.
A special medal will be struck and presented
to the New York Founders of the Harry S.

According to the president of the Zionist
Organization of America, Rabbi Joseph P.
Sternstein, Adams was approached by the ZOA
with the request that he help organize some kind
of artist response to the Academy Award remarks
of Vanessa Redgrave.
"In addition to Paddy Chayefsky's criticism
of the use of the Academy Awards as a forum for
politics," said Rabbi Sternstein, "we feel it neces-
sary to respond to the content of her remarks and
to her position on the PLO.
"Mia* Redgrave," Rabbi Sternstein added,
"is an ardent supporter of the PLO-terroriat
murderers of men, women and children."

Batters Wives
-Not Alcohol
JERUSALEM (JTA) A leading Israelicriminologist
reported that !>etween 30,000-50,000 Israeli wives suffer
beatings by their husbands each year, almost two percent of the
According to Dr. Menahem Amir, director of the Hebrew
University's Institute of Criminology, the high incidence of
battered wives in Israel is not the result of drunken spouses, as
in most other countries, but a direct function of the male
chauvinist society that exists in Israel.
ADDRESSING the annual conference on criminology
here, Amir said the same phenomenon is demonstrated in cases
of rape. He said that research showed that Israeli rapists tend
to blame their victims.
"Israeli men just aren't used to the idea that women might
not need them sexually and feel very threatened by some of the
militant feminist voices in Israel," he said.
Amir wrote his doctoral thesis on rape in Israel and helped
found the world's first rape crisis center in Berkeley, Calif, in
No Judgements, Please
There is no doubt that things look bleak in the Middle
East although perhaps not quite as bleak as UN Sec-
retary General Kurt Waldheim's assertion that the Israel-
Egypt talks have failed.
After all, Waldheim has a stake in the possibility that
they should. The talks would then return to his bailiwick
the United Nations dominated by the one-sided, Com-
munist-Third World Bloc where Israel wouldn't have a
It is for this reason that the talks must not fail, and it
is good news that Secretary Atherton has resumed his
shuttling effort.
The trouble is President Carter. The President simply
won't learn the distinction between being a judge and
being a referee. What is needed in the talks is a referee, a
man who will encourage both sides to seek reasonable
solutions and both sides to make reasonable con-
cessions toward that end.
The President prefers to take the role of judge a
judgmental judge at that, not a disinterested one. It is for
this very reason that Israel has found it so difficult to
continue the talks begun last November. With Carter
relentlessly demanding concessions from the Israelis
before the talks even get going, how can there be hope for
It is here that he should be even-handed, and if he can
be, perhaps the Atherton shuttle can get things moving
Production Deemed 'Zionist9
East Europe Said 'Nyet'
NEW YORK (JTA) The producers of the
NBC-TV film Holocaust were refused permission to
shoot any of the film in East Europe where many of
the Nazi death camps were located, Robert Berger,
the film's producer, revealed here.
He said he was turned down by Hungary, Cze-
choslovakia, Yugoslavia, East Germany and Poland.
The reasons given, according to Berger, were that
parts of the scripts were seen as too "Zionistic,"
showed people rising up against the authorities or
depicted people who were not Nazis as anti-Semitic.

Detroit Police Evict
Nazis from Book Store
Toohnmn Board Of Peres Confident Peace Talks
and court officers forcibly evicted
the local Nazis from a bookstore
they operated in the city's south-
west area. Several hundred by-
standers in the largely working
several bags of what appeared to
be cement mix and thousands of
sheets of anti-Black and anti-
Jewish literature.
Paul Boa tin, local president of
Italian Americans for Good
class area chanted "get the Nazis
out" as the police broke the store
door open and began removing
its contents.
The eviction came after the
building's owner, Eddy S.
Bullock Jr., obtained a court
order on the grounds that he had
leased the store to William
Russell, a leader of the Detroit
National Socialist Movement, for
use as a printing shop but no
printing had taken place.
EVER SINCE the store
opened late last year as a Nazi
bookstore it has been the subject
of demonstrations by Jewish,
labor, veterans and other groups.
Police found in the store
several rifles and baseball bats,
Oovernment and chairman of the
Labor, Community, Interfaith
Council Against the Nazis, a
coalition group which had urged
the closing of the bookstore,
declared: "We serve notice on the
Nazi atorm troopers that
wherever they go in the metro-
politan area we will be there to
oppose them."
GARY WILLIAMS, a 26-year-
old factory worker, complained
about the Nazis trying to get
young children to distribute their
anti-Black and anti-Semitic liter-
ature by paying them small
amounts of money.
"Anybody that, pushes this on
children is no good," he was
reported as saying.

Shimon Peres, leader of the

press conference here, pre-
dicted that the Middle East
peace talks would resume
shortly, once Secretary of
State Cyrus Vance meets
with Israel's Foreign Min-
ister Moshe Dayan,
While Peres noted that
his party differs from the
Begin government on the
peace process in some
ways, he stated that "Be-
gin should be given a fair
chance to try his hand."
HE SAID he was not happy at
the reception Prime Minister
Menschem Begin had received in
Washington, commenting
facetiously that "they even
forbade the cherry blossoms to
bloom." Peres was in Chicago to
address s dinner on behalf of
State of Israel Bonds.
On the peace negotiations,
Peres stressed the need to bring
Jordan into the negotiations and
expressed the view that Jordan

the negotiations with Sadat An

Chanukah party in London at war's end in 1945 for children who survived Nazi con-
centration camps.
Children's Chanukah Party Serves As
Heartbreaking Reminder of Holocaust
By Lillian Meltzcr Schoen
The recent showing the
Holocaust on NBC-TV reminded
me of my time of service with
the Canadian Army during
World War II, when I served as
secretary to the Canadian Jewish
Chaplain in London. H / Major
Samuel Lass.
Rabbi Cass, his wife and son
Merc killed a few years ago in a
highway accident, when a car
drove the wrong way and
smashed into them, in Quebec.
RABBI Cass was a fine
humanitarian, and I would like to
pay tribute to the work he did
with the first group of children
that were brought to England out
the European concentration
[camps in November 1945.
They were brought to a private
ate in Durley, near
- uthhampton. A Sgt. Gertrude
i i!inun. the rabbi and myself
drove down from London to visit
the children. We were to arrange
a Chanukah party for them. We
were immediately surrounded by
the children, who had already
been properly clothed. They told
us what they had been through,
and showed us the numbers that
had been branded on their arms.
The rabbi arranged to have the
various service people stationed
in and about London give us
what they could of their packages
from home and what we could get
in the canteens. We were able to
give these children their first
Chanukah Party in freedom.
They, in turn, entertained us with
skits and songs they had learned
in camp (if you could call this
being entertained). It was
heartbreaking. We also tried to
assist in locating relatives in
Canada and the U.S.A. This work
was done by the Canadian and, I
presume, the American Jewish
RABBI Cass also took many
packages with him when he went
to the continent to distribute
among the people that were being
I corresponded with some of
the children, but lost track, as
i.hev were sent to different parts
of England, Scotland and Ireland
to get schooling and learn trades,

surviving family members, if
Many children were sent to
England before the war, for the
duration. When I visited the
home of Neville Lasky for a
weekend, the girl they had taken
in was in France to try to locate
her mother. This young girl was
later the author of Little Boy
Lost, which became a movie
starring Bing Crosby.

A Passover Eve Story
Lauderdale Lakes
Twas the night before Pesach, when all through the house
There was so much excitement that no one could douse.
The Seder was prepared at grandma's with care
In hopes that Elijah soon would be there.
The children were rehearsing the questions to be said
While the grown-ups reading the Hagaddah were shaking their
And then, mamma in her apron, and I. with a huge pot.
Were busy laying out the matzah-balls, so soft and hot.
The table was lavishly laden with haroset, matzohs, and wine-
A bit of bitter herbs, a bone, an egg, the salt water tasted fine.
Sure enough, little Stevie sprang up to question why
So many Jews left Egypt only to suffer and die!
The reply was lengthy-a tale of miracles and might-
Hut little Stevie remained awed as he listened that night.
His eyes-how they sparkled, his breath-how fast-
As he ate. drank and sang during the Seder repast.
Soon there by the door it seemed to open wide-
Little Stevie ran forward to greet Elijah and usher him inside.
The wine cups were filled and filled again and again.
It made little Stevie feel taller a part of those courageous men.
When all spirits rose high and faces turned red
As the reading continued endless, steeply Stevie was led to bed.
But what did the Hagaddah story evolve as its theme?
He wondered and pondered and fell into a deep dream!
At first, near the horizon, a strange beacon did appear;
And then, lo and behold, a thunderous voice rang out-loud and
Little Stevie was aghast as he heard it exclaim:
"Lead my people to freedom! Let that be thy fame!"
For ages, to Jerusalem, all His people struggled to go.
To-day, Stephen, finally succeeded, with faith and courage
At last, big Stevie awoke ready to journey home.
So-we wished him a Happy Pesach-but still prayed for Shalom!

Begin Still Looks to U.S. for Mediation
Israel still wants United States
mediation despite its dispute
with the Carter Administration,
Prime Minister Begin said here.
He told reporters at an. im-

his office that he was "looking
forward" to Assistant Secretary
of State Alfred Atherton

IN A markedly more con-
ciliatory tone than that which he
characterized the Carter Ad-
ministration in his official Cabi-
net statement, Begin said that
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance's -
act of "taking sides" in favor of
Egypt at his State Department
conference had not changed
Israel's attitude about the
Atherton mission. "We welcome
his mission,'' he said. "We will do
our beat to help him in the fulfill-
ment of it."
But while his tone was con-
ciliatory, Begin did not back
down from the content of the
sharp Cabinet communique last
week. Every word of that com-
munique was the truth, the Prime
Minister insisted.

God's Little Mistake
When Mickey Spear speak* of
his 29-year-old mentally retarded
daughter, Robyn, he saya his
"sweetheart" is one of "God's lit-
tle mistakes."
When Harold (Rusty) Town-
send. Sunland Training Center's
behavioral specialist, speaks of
Robyn, he refers to a gratis "lit-
tle butterfly" whose sweetness
And when Robyn Spear speaks
of her specialnasB, she insists she
is not retarded. "I'm excep-
If both father and therapist are
right, so is Robyn.
LAST FRIDAY night, at Con-
gregation B'nai Raphael, this
woman-child proved that she is,
truly, exceptional.
Robyn sat on the bima, punc-
tuating the service with sighs
and smiles, craning to make eye
contact with her parents, with a
cottage-mate from Sunland. And
a half hour into the Shabbos eve
service, Cantor Jack Leraer
called upon Robyn to officially
become a Bat Mitzvah. *
Robyn is the first female Sun-
land client to participate in the
religious rites of passage and the
first client (male or female) to do
so off the Center's grounds.
IT IS Mar. 21, an overcast day
and still a bit cool. The drive up
to meet Robyn Spear takes me to
I the northwest corner of Dade
County where Sunland, like the
retarded people it houses, is
tucked away behind a metal
chain-link fence and a guarded
I gate.
I am a few minutes early for
I the 1:30 p.m. appointment, so di-
rector of volunteer services Dar-
lene Farrell takes time to discuss
I Sunland, its clients and Robyn.
Of the 527 residents, there are
[perhaps 30 to 60 persons partici-
I pating in the Jewish Tikvah pro-
Igram sponsored by the Southeast
I Region of United Synagogue of

projects, has had Robyn in these
special holiday classes since 1972.
|Due to a lack of funds, there is a
astronomic and festival ap-
proach to Judaism instead of on-
oing study.
ROBYN'S participation in re-
gious activities is part of Sun-
and's directed effort at "normal-
bar life. Farrell says that
ants are trained "for individual

tion, but I am not to i...< i her on
this day.
SUBJECT TO periodic tan-
trums and disruptive behavior,
Robyn has been misbehaving.
She is upset that she cannot
withdraw her savings from Sun-
land's on-Center bank. (Clients
are paid for their work in therapy -
oriented activities.) Just that
morning, she has struck out in
anger and frustration. Although
she is too weak to actually hurt
anyone, her behavior was of an
unacceptable violent nature. She
had to be subdued, gently re-
Townsend explains in intense,
choked terms that to go ahead
with the interview would provide
Robyn with "positive reinforce-
ment" for her anti-social behav-
ior. In spite of the fact that Sun-
land, now searching for its eighth
director, could use any good pub-
licity it could get, in spite of the
desire to encourage Robyn's reli-
gious activities, Townsend was
wrestling with what in the
long run would be best for his
I am embarrassed that he even
feels the need to explain his re-
fusal to me.
THAT NIGHT, I speak to
Mickey Spear about our aborted
attempt to publicize Robyn's
achievement. I receive his per-
mission to use all the information
I gather even the unpleasant
and unflattering. He hopes to de-
monstrate that, although their
situation is not ideal, other par-
ents may gain an appreciation of
what possibilities exist for the re-
The Spears did not know that
their child was different in her in-
fancy. The first-born of three
daughters, Robyn's learning
problems became apparent at age
"Towards the end of kinder-
garten," Mickey Spear recalls,
"the teacher said Robyn was not
able to learn." The most frustrat-
ing problem, initially, was that
"10 different doctors gave 10 dif-
ferent answers" to their ques-
tions. The Spears would go to
sleep hoping that "the foDowinjr
morning Robyn would be nor-
IT WAS not to be. The confir-
mation came finally at New
York's Maimonides Hospital
when Robyn was a teen-ager. Al-
though Betty Lee Spear was in
her early 20s when Robyn was
born, it was determined that
there had been brain damage at
So, the Spears have learned to
be grateful that Robyn can read
music and tentatively play the
piano, type if just a little, even
though she cannot concentrate
long enough to be tested.
"We squeeze the most out of
the good things," says her father.
There are frequent flare-ups, like
the one that day over a bank
book. "We forgive her and wait
for the next flare-up."
OUR NEXT appointment is
arranged for the following Tues-
day. The day is wet, nasty and
unseasonably cold. I have mis-
givings that this trip, too, may
come to naught.
Mickey Spear and I drive to
Rose Cottage on Sunland's cam-
pus, where Robyn lives. The
stucco bungalow contains two
dormers, dark but neat, a large
airy living room, a college-type
community bathroom, an unused
kitchen and a control room for at-
tendants and house parents.
Robyn comes to greet us im-
mediately, suitcase in hand. I am
startled by her appearance. I ex-
pect a young woman near my
own age and build. I am intro-
duced, instead, to a slight, little
girl-woman dressed in an orange
and white polyester dress covered
with a tattered, hand-knitted
She is wearing little girl ank-
lets and loafers. Her light brown
hair coils softly and flatly against
her scalp. She speaks with a shir,
a alight speech impediment. She
wants to go home. Her father ex-
plains that she will go home the
week prior to her Bat Mitzvah.
PRIOR TO our formal inter- ;
view, we seek out Rusty Town-
send to answer some specific
questions. Townsend prepares a
release for Robyn to sign. He ex-
plains to her that she is agreeing
to a newspaper interview by talk- '
ing to me. If there is anything I
sakl that she does not want in I
print, she is to say so. Townsend
has us all sign the agreement "to
protect Robyn's interest."
Townsend prefers not to "talk
in mental ages" or I.Q. numbers.
"For someone who doesn't un-
derstand mental retardation, fig-
ures are deceivkur." he explains.
Robyn is developmentally dis-
abled within "the mild range of
retardation." Academically, she
functions "on a grade school
Again, Townsend prefers not
to be too specific. Her social be-
havior, her adaptive behavior
have "progressed immensely,"
but there are still self-help and
self-care skills which Robyn must
master. Townsend refers to the
poncho for which Robyn has a
"fixation." Explanation of Ro-
byn's piecework in Sunshine Cor-
ner (she makes greeting cards
which are sold to the public) and
her savings causes another up-
setting discussion of her savings
account. She wants her money.
releases, Robyn, Mickey and I
drive to Congregation B'nai Ra-
phael for a Bat Mitzvah lesson
with Cantor Jack Lerner.
Cantor Lerner, since the tem-
ple released Rabbi Victor Zwel-
ling from the pulpit, has been
both chazzan and rabbi to the
congregation. He also privately
tutors learning-disabled young-
sters for Bar and Bat Mitzvah.
Robyn has been his first mentally
retarded student. He discounts
any unusual credit.
"I am just doing what anyone
else would do. And Robyn is do-
ing a portion of what any other
girl would do on a Friday night in
a lot less quantity."
He instructs Robyn to begin
reading "nice n' slow 'n' clear."

I ask what the ceremony will
mean to Robyn. She replies, "It

main thing. To act like a lady, not
to cry like a baby anymore."
We talk about God. Robyn
says, "We pray to God one
God God knows everything
we do I don't know if God
will be proud."
WE ARE driving back to Sun-
land. I begin to wonder if Robyn
realizes that she is retarded. With
her father's permission, I ask.
She does not like the word re-
tarded and tells me she is, in-
stead, exceptional "Retarded
means you can't tell right or any-
thing," Robyn explains.
In spite of Robyn's awareness
and Townsend's encouraging
progress report, Mickey Spear
notes that his daughter's slurred
speech and occasional seizures
only began nine years ago. Her
imitative behavior suggests re-
gression, he thinks.
I hesitantly ask what will hap-
pen to Robyn in the years to
come as her parents age. Without
mincing words, Mickey says that
concern is why she is at Sunland
now. "The one fear in the mind of
anyone who has this kind of child
I is that no one is to consider tak-
ing her into their home." The
mixture of love, fear and pain is
IT IS Friday evening, Apr. 7.
B'nai Raphael's services this
night are well attended. As Ro-
byn comes to the podium, the
congregation is unnaturally still.
Robyn, her flat curls coaxed
into a stylish afro, reads her por-
tion and her prayer. Mickey and
Betty Lee Spear thank God for
bringing them to this joyous sea-
son. Pride, determination and
love swell the small sanctuary.
There are tears, discreet dabs of a

Debate Continuing
Contacts With Egypt
Sharp divisions within
the Cabinet over the value
of continuing contacts with
Egypt in their present form
have surfaced in the past
few days.
In conversations with
various members of the
Knesset, Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan reportedly
described the "Jerusalem -
Cairo" axis as "barren," a
reference to Defense Min-
ister Ezer Weizman's
meetings with President
Anwar Sadat two weeks
ago and his projected
return visit to Cairo that
was supposed to take place
last week.
ALTHOUGH Weixman did not
succeed in persuading Sadat to
resume the military and political
committee talks, suspended since
January, he expressed the view,
in his subsequent briefings of the
Cabinet, that the maintenance of
thaw contacts was the moat
affective way to break the nego-
tiations impasse
He cited the fact that Sadat
invited him to return in support
of that argument.
But some Cabinet members
claimed Sadat waa engaging in a
public relations ploy aimed at
widening the gap between Israel
and the U.S. It was also sug-
gested that the Egyptians were
trying to build up Weixman
whom they regard as far more
flexible than Prime Minister
Menachem Begin.
DAYAN is expressing the view
that contacts along the lines of
the Weizman-Sadat meeting will
be fruitless unless Israel coor-
dinates its position beforehand
with the U.S., as, he claimed, the
Egyptians constantly cto.
He stressed his belief that the
U.S. must be kept in the picture
under all circumstances,
although he described the current
situation as one of deterioration
in Israeli-American relations.
According to Dayan, Israel
and the U.S. may have had tem-
porary differences in the past but
were generally considered to be in
the same camp. As Dayan sees it,
Egypt has now become an ally of
the U.S. and Israel finds itself in
a corner.
Dayan warned that the current
style of negotiations would lead
to deadlock and the possible
revival of the old proposal for
nothing more than an end-of-bel-
ligerency agreement between
Israel and Egypt. In that case, he
said, Israel might make a partial
withdrawal from Sinai as its
Egypt were still reported to be
' engaged in behind the arenas
preparations for a return trip to
Cairo by Weinman, No date has
bean announced and the visit
may hinge on the outcome of the
on-going debate in the Cabinet.
So far both governments appear
to be probing each other's inten-
tions to determine whether there
are good prospects for sub-
stantial progress if direct nego-
tiations are resumed

Canadian nationalism and Jewish
nationalism are each working out
their sense of themselves and
each, partly out of ignorance,
partly out of suspicion, is insen-
sitive to and unappreciative of
the others' legitimate aspirations
and fears."
With those words, Prof. Irwin
Cotter of McGill University, a
leading Canadian civil rights
attorney and political scientist,
summed up the concerns of the
Jewish community in this
province, now governed by the
Party Quebecois which seeks to
separate Quebec from the rest of
IN HIS remarks to the 1,000
delegates from the U.S. and
Canada at the 1978 Biennial Con-
vention of the Jewish Welfare
Board "The Jewish condition in Quebec
must be of concern to Jews
He observed, "Just as it is true
to say that 'Quebec-Canada' will
not be the same, so it is true to
say that Quebec Jewry will not be
r oiuf
the same again."
He said that "What is finding
public expression in Quebec is the
full encouter of 'le fait Francais'
(the French fate) and le fait Juif
(the Jewish fate); mutual explor-
ation in a context of very dif-
ferent memories and perceptions,
symbolized by 'I remember,"
ironically the motto of each, and
the importance of symbols
"homeland' to the French
Canadian and Jewish peoples."
COTLER noted that "When
somebody says je suis pequiste'
(I am a Party Quebecois person)
he is giving expression to a belief
system, a statement of values, an
organized frame of reference, a
commitment. Similarly, when a
Jew says 'I am a Zionist,' he is
saying something more than
simply he is pro-Israeli. He too is
giving expression to a belief
system, a statement of values, an
organizing frame of reference, a
commitment," Cotler said.
He also observed that "It is
not only appropriate but imper-
ative that we have these com-
munal airings of private and
public anxieties."
