leet iRwm S. field: new ChaiRimn of UJ&

Editor-in-Chief Emeritus
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
Meet Irwin S. Field, the new
general chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal. He is young,
warm hearted, very dedicated to
Jewish causes, and very con-
scious of his obligations to
society and to Jewish needs. He
is the kind of person sought after
by national Jewish organizations
for top leadership.
At 43, he brings with him to
the UJA Cabinet a supreme
record of about 20 years of
communal and national
leadership experience. He is the
youngest man ever elected by the
national UJA as its general
chairman. He was one of the
founders of the UJA Young
leadership movement and one of
its first officers.
HE HA8 also been actively
engaged in JDC activities, in the
Council of Jewish Federations, in
the American Association for
Jewish Education, and in other
national Jewish bodies. A
resident of Los Angeles, he made
his mark there are chairman of
two of the most outstanding
fund-raising campaigns for the
Jewish community.
Jewish education is among the
subjects very close to his heart.
In this he follows the footsteps of
his father, Walter A. Field,
president of a paint manufac-
turing company in Detroit, whose
main aspiration is to make the
Jewish youth aware of their great
Erudite in Jewish history, and
a great lover of it, his father
wrote an unusual book relating in
verse the major events in Jewish
history from the teime of
Abraham till our present time,
including the Holocaust and the
birth of Israel. The book, A
People's Epic, is prefaced by the
noted Jewish scholar, Prof.
Harry M. Orlinsky. It is of great
educational value in promoting
Jewish knowledge and identity

Special Report: Argentina
The situation confronting Jews
in Argentina is a complex and
disturbing one, with facts dif-
ficult to obtain. The recent
release from prison of Jewish
editor' and publisher Jacobo
Timerman followed more than a
year of protests. The dispatch
excerpted below, which appeared
before Timerman's release, offers
valuable insights into the human
dimensions of some of the
realities of Jewish life in
Argentina today.
Every morning hundreds of
Jewish women come to the Em-
bassy to speak with the Consul,
while policemen and security men
stand watch. The Embassy is
officially open only between nine
and 11, but none of the women is
ever turned away; Jewish lives
are at stake.
Each day. Consul General
Moshe Peer and his assistants
provide the women with letters in
which the State of Israel guaran-
tees an entry visa and refuge to

Report of Nominating Committee,
Jewish Federation of Greater Fort Lauderdale
In accordance with the By-Lawa of the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale, Inc., the nominating committee is
pleased to present the following nominations of officers and
members of the board of directors to be acted on at the
Federation's annual meeting Tuesday. May 30 at 7:90 p.m. in
Temple Beth Israel.
Additional nominations for membership on the board of
directors may be made by the filing of a petition containing the
signatures of twenty-five members of the Corporation. The
petition shall be delivered to the president of the corporation five
days prior to the annual meeting at which the election of the
officers and directors are to take place.

Normally, these families from
widely divergent areas of the
Jewish world stay in Mevaseret
for five or six months while they
study Hebrew and look for
positions and permanent homes.
CURRENTLY, however, along
with more than 10,000 newly
arrived professionals living in
family absorption centers and
hostels throughout Israel, they
often wait one. sometimes even
two years before homes and or
jobs are found. Sometimes, new-
comers find employment but
cannot obtain suitable subsidized
housing in the same vicinity;
sometimes, the reverse is true. A
major problem for some pro-
fessionals, like Dr. K.. is that
positions in Israel
specialties are very limited.
To help families like the K'a.
the Israeli absorption authorities
and branches of the Ministry of
Labor are conducting market
research designed to facilitate
placement of professional oum
throughout the country.
Already, hundreds of Russian-
Jewish scientists recently arrived
in Israel are playing vital rolea in
industrial and export develop-
ment. There is hope for the K's as
DESPITE his difficulties. Dr.
K. expresses his gratitude to the
Jewish communities of Israel and
the Western world for their con-
tinuing campaigns to release
"Prisoners of Zion" in the Soviet
Union. "The only hope of the
Jews in Russia lies in mobilizing
Western public opinion and
concern." he emphasizes.
Evelyn Ross, formerly chair-
man of the Leeds "35 Group" of
Jewish activists who campaign
on behalf of Soviet Jewry,
describes her family's reasons for
coming to live in Israel: "Of late,
there has been an increase in
National Front activity in the
Leeds district and even some un-
pleasant assaults on Jewish
children. Here in Israel, we feel
wonderfully at home. The kids
can go out at night on their own,
to and from Jerusalem and
we don't worry about them."
The Glickbergs decided tofc.
We needed the sense 0f|
identification with the rJ?|
around us. We were convbl
that only in Israel would we&
this personal satisfaction."

Since Creation of the UJA
The year 1979 will mark the
40th anniversary of the historic
fund-raising merger between the
United Palestine Appeal (now
UIA) and the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee, in
creating the United Jewish
On the night of Nov. 10, 1938,
synagogues in Germany were
burned and Jews were beaten and
killed. Under the impact of this
shocking event, known as
"Kristall Nacht." the three major
humanitarian agencies of the
American Jewish community
merged their fund-raising activ-
ities to create the United Jewish
Appeal in 1939.
THE ORIGINAL agreement
was signed by the late Rabbi
Jonah B. Wise for the American
Jewish Joint Distribution Com-
mittee (JDC); the late Rabbi
Abba Hillel Silver for the United
Palestine Appeal (UPA); and
William Rosenwald for the
National Coordinating Commit-
tee for Refugees (NCCR).
The JDC was founded in 1914
DMC Stems
Open Revolt
Secretariate of the Democratic
Movement for Change (DMC) is
trying to stem an open revolt
within the party against the
leadership of Prof. Yigael Yadin.
It has voted unanimously to
condemn Dan Bibaro. chairman
of the DMC's Council, for par-
ticipating in a meeting of DMC
dissidents urging Yadin's
removal. Bibaro himself was
urged to resign.
The DMC, which emerged from
the elections just a year ago as
Israel's third largest political
party, has been wracked by
internal differences since then.
These were magnified when the
party leadership voted to join
Prime Minister Menachem
Begin's Likud-led coalition late
last year. That move alienated

to meet the welfare needs of East
European Jewry whose area of
settlement was transformed into
a battleground following the out-
break of World War I.
In 1925, the UPA (today, the
United Israel Appeal, Inc.) was
established to coordinate fund-
raising efforts in America
devoted to the upbuilding of
Jewish life in Palestine.
WHEN Germany was taken
over by the Nazis in 1933 the
NCCR, a predecessor
organization of the National
Refugee Service and the New
York Association for New Amer-
icans (NYANA), was formed to
help settle Jewish refugees from
Europe to the United States in
cooperation with the Hebrew
Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS).
This winter in Jerusalem, the
new JDC President, Donald
Robinson, met with UIA Presi-
dent Melvin Dubinsky to begin
negotiating a new five-year
allocation commencing in 1979.
Under the existing contract
between UIA and JDC, of the
first $55 million UJA receives, 67
percent goes to UIA and 33
percent goes to JDC. After that,
all funds above $55 million are
allocated in the following
manner: 87.5 percent goes to
UIA; and 12.5 percent to JDC.

and Robinson, at the meeting
were: Max M. Fisher, Leon

The Jewish Floridian nf Greater Fort Lauderdale
Is Israel Still on Top Militarily?
The latest demonstration of how up-side down the world
can be and often is has just come from a rather
unexpected quarter, from no less a body than the United
States Senate. By a vote of 54-44, the Senate approved
President Carter's plan to sell the world's most advanced
jet fighter planes simultaneously to Israel and two of
Israel's more formidable adversaries, Egypt and Saudi
President Carter's rationale for his "package deal" was
that it was a step toward peace and a firm gesture of
support and friendship for those among the Arabs in the
Middle East who are moderate.
The question that gnaws is this: why do moderate,
peace-loving lands which Saudi Arabia and Egypt are
painted to be require the world's deadliest assault
aircraft? What disturbs as well as gnaws is that the U.S.
Senate went along with the President's hoked up. up-side
down reasoning, all of it a ploy to mollify the mean,
narrow, oil-soaked, gold-glutted barons of Saudi Arabia,
and the demagogic military clique of Egypt headed by
Anwar El-Sadat.
What does it all show? That appeasement isn't dead;
that blackmail pays; that pulling wool over the public's
eye works; that Jimmy Carter speaks with forked tongue;
that Israel's military superiority has been cut; that more
of the same can be expected as we move into the future;
and that Jews have got to rally and stay mobilized as
never before in Israel's cause.
Secretary of State Vance said immediately after the
Senate vote that 'United States policy towards Israel
remains unchanged," that "Israel can count on the U.S.
for its security." Frankly, it doesn't look that way from
Fort Lauderdale.
Cheap Shot in Pompano Beach
What's in a mayoral, city commission or county
government proclamation on saluting the State of Israel
on its 30th anniversary that could possibly be upsetting?
In Pompano Beach, there's at least one city com-
missioner who takes the view that "we have no right as
city officials to get involved in this kind of international
situation." Step up and meet City Commissioner Betty
Wistedt. She was against a proclamation extending happy
birthday greetings to Israel.
"I am not opposed to the State of Israel," she
commented one recent afternoon. Moreover, she went on,
"I am not an anti-Semite" and "Some of my best friends
are......" Sure, sure.
Well, whether Commissioner Wistedt likes it or not,
she sounds and behaves like an anti-Semite. Take, for
example, what happened the day of the proclamation's
issuance. Two men were present to accept it. One was
Rabbi Morris Skop, the longtime spiritual leader of
Temple Sholom of Pompano Beach, Broward's second
oldest Jewish congregation, and the other was Sherman
Koenig, president of Pompano's B'nai B'rith.
As they stepped forward to receive the proclamation,
Commissioner Wistedt interrupted the proceedings with a
point of order. "Are these gentlemen delegates of the
State of Israel?" she asked. Any public official in Pom-
pano Beach who doesn't know who Rabbi Skop is just
isn't with it, as the saying goes. So what was the lady's
point in asking her question? The answer is simple. It was
plainly a cheap shot a cheap piece of Jewbaiting.
While Mayor William J. Alsdorf and Vice-Mayor
Grant W. Boomer were a pair of reluctant dragons in the
whole matter each of them in private agreement with
Wistedt's opposition to the proclamation both thought
it best to go along with issuance of the document to avoid
a controversy. Isn't it melancholy that both should have
dredged up a negative reason for supporting a good thing?
What ever happened to good will? That after all
is what the proclamation intended to show: good will
toward Israel on its 30th birthday; good will to the Jewish
community, which gives of its heart and treasure to help
Israel survive as a home for the homeless: gotd will to all
other Americans of good will, who constitute the majority
of this country's citizens and who regard Israel as a friend,
ally and model of the democratic way in a part of the world
dominated by ostentatious dictators, demagogues,
terrorist honchos and petty kings.

The Big BarMitzvah Bowl Bash
IN MY day, boys were Bar
Mitzvah on Tuesday or Thurs-
day, during the early morning
service. There was no big simcha
made of it. There was no special
training for it either.
Boys were expected to know
how to read from the Torah as a
matter of course, and they were
also expected to know just about
any Haftorah as a matter of
course, too.
THE Saturday Bar Mitzvah.
together with the social
celebration, came into vogue just
at about that time, and so my
own Bar Mitzvah was a tran-
sitional, a hybrid event, spanning
significant sociological change.
Fate had its hand in it. too. I
was sick in bed for my originally-
scheduled weekday Aliyah and so
wound up being Bar Mitzvah the
next Saturday, with the throe, I
candy bags and all.
But there was no big party w
only because of my fajniiY|i
contempt for the corruption of
religious occasion; at the tin*.
we were simply too poor to su
one. We could be elitists atZ

No matter how far many have j
come in liberalizing their u,
titudes toward a religious oc-
casion, there ought to be no room
for vulgarizing it.
The fact is, as I say, that Bv
Mitzvah was not as religiously
important in the past as we hivi
made it here in America during I
the past quarter-century or so.
THE SAD thing is that we [
have added to its significance |
only in a kind of Marjorit

Mitzvah has come to say mm
about the parents who or- >
chestrate it than about the boy I
who presumably embarks upa
his manhood.
If, in my day, the Bar Mitzvah
present was the ubiquitous
fountainpen, at least that wu i
sign of the Jewish badge of honor
the Jewish pride in being the
People of the Book. Today, it is
sisboom-bah. Where can there be
pride in that?
It is the height of folly U i

Judaism: 'Statistical Insignificance'
Friday, May 26,1978
Volume 7
38 I
The days when sociologists
could write books like Protestant-
CatholicsyJews (Will Herberg)
are not so long gone, although
the post-World War II euphoria
about Jewish status in America
has just about dissipated.
There is instead the constant
flow of troubling pieces in the
national and local media detailing
the erosion of Jewish population,
identity and religious concern.
PUTTING them all together,
that most liberal of Protestant
historians and theologians,
Martin E. Marty, recently came
to the conclusion that "Judaism
is two generations away from
statistical insignificance and
knows it."
And knows it This is the
troubling element in that most
troubling statement Just two
years ago, I wrote here that I was
disturbed by the 1976 Gallup
report on "Religion in America"
not for what it revealed but that
in omitting the usual figures on
Jewish beliefs and attitudes it
was making a statement that
Jews were statistically in-
That five years before, the
opinions of this 3 percent of the
population were sought, made
the deemphasis in 1976 even
more striking.
SCHOLARLY Marty joins the
others. Jews and Christians, who
look at the low birth rates among
Jews, the growth of secularism,
interfaith marriages and the
declining participation in the
synagogue to make somewhat
similar predictions about the
future of the Jewish people.
Nor is this just an American or
British or diaspora view. Only 40
percent of 16 and 17-year-olds
answered positively to a Hebrew
University study question in
Israel which asked: "If you could
be born again, would you choose
to be Jewish?"
Since these teen-agers were
obviously not part of the Jewish
woman's attitude toward
reproduction the most liberal
of all on contraception and
abortion a comment on this
from Rabbi Sandy Sasso ( the
first woman ordained in the
Reconstructionist movement) is
worth citing:
"THE continuity of Jews and
Judaism is not only a numerical
issue but a qualitative one .
Losses cannot be countered
simply by advocating an increase
in the Jewish birth rate."
And in the Women's American
ORT Reporter, Mary Gendler
rebuffs those, primarily male,
who "are asking Jewish women
to become baby machines,
hatching as many kids as
possible for the political benefit
of the community."
Panic is the title of an article
by Shirley Frank in the Winter
issue of Lilith. the Jewish femin
ist magazine, which explores the
issue in depth. Ms. Frank relates
that she is depressed, disgusted
and "deeply ashamed at the idea
of Judaism sinking to a level
where we are scrounging around
for every warm body we can get."
AND SHE, too, concludes that
"There is still a desperate need to
ensure Jewish survival by
making Judaism and Jewish life
clearly meaningful

Israel's Thirtieth Anniversary
(Editor's note: Jean EUmann is 91-year-old citizen of Fort
Lauderdale. She reads and speaks to students of literature at the
Broward Community College in Hollywood. She wrote the
following poem for Israel's 30th anniversary.)
Rejoice that after three decades the dove
that sobbed so long on the lonely road of grief,
now makes its ardent voice with rapture sing of peace.
Of course, we never forget the tired, defeated, shelterless, fearful
who braved to plow their passions in the arid earth,
revive rocky fields, sparse of grass,
pluck weeks like thorns in bitter clay while
they suffered the inhumanities of man and died, and died and
However worn from work and pain, Phoenix-like they survived
the fire.
They heard David's "Alas, my son"
that sang of light beyond the dark,
that inspired the hope of a new dawn under a free sky;
of clean water running in holy lyric rhythm.
They knew peace awaited them,
when they could ascend the ladder of their dreams unforeknown.
They were avid to contribute prophets, writers, musicians,
statesmen and scientists to make of mysteries a truth,
and not just trade in weapons, but create a phantom land.
Today, at this rebirth, as we go into another decade of our
let us release the fruitage of our dreams,
sing songs of sorrow so nobody will see our tears.
Let all share our laughter.

Faisa, 14, was born in a Mos-

had lived for hundreds of years.
During a recent period of fanatic
nationalism when extreme rioting
took place, her father was killed
by a hysterical, screaming mob.
Miraculously, the rest of the
family escaped unharmed and
came to Israel, leaving behind
everything they had owned .

Faisa only vaguely knew.
In Israel, before coming to

IN THE Youth Village, Faisa
is learning the story of her
people, beginning with Abraham.
She also receives tutoring in
Hebrew as part of her valiant
effort to assume her new identity.
"Isn't it strange?" she asks.
"Where we came from, I
always felt like an outsider, but
here in Israel, especially in the
Youth Village, I feel at home with
my people." Her ambition? To
become a social worker and help
other new immigrants.
For 15-year-old Rina, who was
born in Israel to immigrants from
Egypt, the Youth Village means
a chance to make a contribution
to Ofakim, the struggling
development town where she
lives. Like other marginal im-
migrant areas in Israel, Ofakim is
a town with an uncertain future,
where youngsters like Rina often
become dropouts from school and
from life.
AT KFAR SILVER, she has a
different perspective: she can
begin to visualize Ofakim aa a
town with improved medical
facilities, maybe a community
center a place where people
stay, a good place to grow up.
Rina plans to join the Nachal

military obligation by joining a

she wants to continue her studies

January Immigration to Israel
Up 14&Percent Over 1977

Immigration Upswing: Two
thousand people came on Aliyah
in January to begin the new year
an increase of 14.6 percent as
compared to the first month of
last year. Half of the immigrants
are from Eastern Europe (mostly
Soviet Union): Argentina is

One of UIA's lesser-known roles
is to purchase items from U.S.-
AID's Excess Property Program
for the Jewish Agency. In 1973.
at the height of Russian immi
gration. UIA purchased 125
mobile homes for use as olim
centers. Due to changing expec-
tations of Soviet Olim. the
Jewish Agency is dosing the
mobile home center at Kfar Yona
and is moving the homes into
Negev settlements.
Help from South Florida:
While the United Jewish Appeal
and Jewish Federations examine
how to fund Menachem Begins
plan to abolish the dilapidated
housing conditions of 45.000
families living in distressed
neighborhoods. UIA is beginning
to focus on the technical aspects.
Bob Russell of Miami heads up a
Jewish Agency Committee.
TACH. which brings to Israel
academic and business expertise
in housing. Russell has met with
Israel's Housing Minister.
Gideon Patt.
In addition. CJF President
Chuck Hoffberger directs a
special committee examining the
social dimensions of the problem.
He has met with Minister of
Social Betterment Israel Katz.
The Third Dimension: For the
educated Soviet Olim who know
little of their Jewish past, and
were raised and educated in a
totalitarian environment, they
long for Jewish roots, as they
search for themselves. They are
hungry for knowledge about their
past and their heritage.
That is why The Jewish
Agency now conducts seminars
in the Russian language on
Jewish "roots'. Ulpan Hebrew is
helpful on the functional level,
but the compelling needs of
livelihood prevent many olim
from becoming self-sufficient in
Hebrew. Knowledge of Judaism
in the broad sense of the term,
even via the Russian language, is
a crucial aspect of absorption.
JOBS, housing, social and
community services constitute
the "building blocks" of initial
social absorption. However, we
must also help the oleh enter a
new culture, and it is essential
that we cater to the "soul" as
well as the needs of the neshama
the third dimension of ab-
New Budget Austerity: The
proposed Jewish Agency budget
of $398 million for 1978-79 is
austere, in that it proposes
several cuts that could affect the
rility of life. For instance,
pite rising tuition and school
costs, the Agency wants to cut
secondary school scholarships in
half adequate for half a
school year. Support for higher
education and youth aliyah may
also be cut.
The UIA Link: Without fan-
fare, UIA has been aiding the
settlement of Soviet Jewish olim
for the last several years, with
the assistance of a spatial U.S.
Government grant authorized by
the Congress in 1972.
BY 1977, UIA had admin-
istered SI 53 million in U.S.
grants for the Jewish Agency,
used for various projects to help
absorb Soviet immigrants. About
43 percent of the funds were
spent to expand Israel's facilities
to receive and resettle Soviet
immigrants, according to a report
just submitted to the U.S. Con-
by the Comptroller-Gen-
eral The expansion included
building of permanent housing
for the newcomers, erection of
absorption centers, and estab-
lishment of medical clinics.
The funds were also used for
training and retraining Soviet
immigrants, university scholar-
ships, rental payment and other
absorption programs. They also
covered care and maintenance of
the immigrants while en route
and after arriving in Israel.
The Comptroller-General also
had high marks for UIA's
auditing procedures, and found
that UIA and the Jewish Agency
are making great strides in
streamlining their accounting
and financial procedures.
THIS IS a reflection on the
success of the Agency program
with the Harvard Business
School, which has been studying
how to improve the effectiveness
of each Agency department.
Jewish Agency Assembly: The
major gathering of international
Jewry, marking the 30th anni-
versary of the State of Israel's
independence, will take place in

fully examine the "79 budget and

Accountability: At a time
when the voluntary dollars of
American Jewry are harder to
raise, and the needs of the people
of Israel are greater, leadership
continues to stress account-
ability: how the dollar is spent.
They may understand the
process in their Federation, and
know there is some responsible
degree of accountability for local
programs, but there is general
misconception of the process aa it
relates to the Jewish Agency.
What is not widely known is
that the UIA serves as more than
a mere conduit for UJA funds: it
is watchdog, auditor, program
iluator. an active partner in
the budgeting process. And most
importantly. UIA is responsible
for allocating the UJA dollar to

B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization sponsors a group of
educable mentally retarded
adolescents ages 13-19 in a
summer camp program.
Chaverim (friends) have been
meeting weekly for the past two
years and have been involved in a
number of activities, one of which
included an eight-week Day
Camp experience.
The camp, whkh is located on
the campus of the Michael-Ann
Russell Jewish Community
Center in North Miami Beach,
this year will operate from June
20 to Aug. 12.
The program includes
swimming, arts and crafts,
dramatics, games, trips and a
variety of sports activities. Since
the program's chief aim is to
heighten Jewish consciousness
there will be Israeli dancing and
observance of Jewish holidays
and Shabbat. All programs are
geared to meet the individual
needs of the campers and are
supervised by trained counselors.
Chaverim Day Camp is spon-
sored by the B'nai B'rith
Youth Organization and funded
by a special grant from the
Greater Miami Jewish
Federation. There still are
openings in the Camp for four
youngsters. The first session
begins June 19 and ends July 14,
with the second session opening
July 17 and ending Aug. 11.

TO THE newly-elected UJA
general chairman, Jewish
education and identity begins at
home. All members of his family
have made it a tradition to gather
every Friday evening for Shabbat
dinner at his home. He and his
wife, Johanna, never -accept
engagements for Friday evening.
Nor do his two sons of 19 and 17.
Friday evening is a strictly
family evening in Field's home in
the traditional Jewish at-
mosphere. This togetherness is
not so much because of religion
as it is to emphasize the spirit of
Jewish continuity.
Views on UJA
The election of Field to UJA
general chairmanship indicates
the passing of UJA's top
leadership from the older
generation to the younger to
"graduates" of the Young
Leadership class. Field's
predecessor, Leonard Strelitz,
was the first from the Young
Leadership ranks to attain the
UJA general chairmanship last
1 year.
Field is fully aware of the
challenge his new position carries
in a year of crisis for Israel, when
American Jewry must use its
creative energies to fulfill the
social and educational needs of
the people in Israel. He thinks of
the UJA as an instrument that
has the ability to provide the
human and financial resources
capable of assuring the creative
continuity of the Jewish people.
HE ALSO sees the UJA as an
instrument that has the unique
capability of bringing together all
Jewish people whatever
spectrum they are on the
religious, ideological or
philosophical scene and
cement them into a unifying
factor in Jewish life.
He, naturally, considers the
raising of funds by the UJA as
being of prime importance but he
does not neglect to stress that
beyond raising of money, UJA is
also rasing people, unifying
people, bringing people together,
stimulating people to feel a sense
of their history and heritage,
making them conscious that they
are involved in a very Jewish
Field believes that a person
involving himself in UJA work is
doing something not just for
someone else, but also for himself
and his family. To him, such
involvement spells "participating
in the great estate" left to the
Jewish people since ancient times
by their forefathers. He cites
himself as an example.

HE HAD grandparents whom
he never met, who prayed for

he points out, but they left him
"a great estate" they kept the
concept of Israel alive and the
return of the Jewish people to
Israel "Had they left me a great
deal of money and not kept this
concept alive, my life would have
been empty today; it would not
be as full of Jewish life," he told a
UJA group.
He visited Israel for the first
time in 1951 with his parents
his father was then a delegate to
the World Zionist Congress held
in Israel for the first time in
history, after the creation of the
State. Later he visited Israel with
his wife on UJA Young
Leadership missions. These visits
had a strong influence on them.
The Two Paths
Field's guiding philosophy in
life is that there are two paths
one can follow he can con-
tribute to society, or he can stay
away and watch events pass by.
himself remaining merely an
observer. He chose the first one.
He feels that people who have an
opportunity because of their
position, background or
knowledge, have an obligation to
contribute to society.
FROM HIS very early years he
spent a good part of his life and
time trying to contribute to
society in general and to the
Jewish community in particular.
He concentrated on the Jewish
community, influenced by his
upbringing. An important in-
fluence was also his first visit to
He believes that we are on the
threshold of a generational
change. He sees younger men and
women all across the country
taking positions of great im-
portance to Jewish communal
activities a new generation of
leaders emerging on the Jewish
It is not one generation taking
over from another generation but
is a co-mingling of ideas of
younger Jews working together
with those of the preceding
generation who have ac-
cumulated experience and who
had stood the test of time in their
communal activities, as well as in
their work for the Jewish people
as a whole.
IT IS very important to un-
derstand the meaning of this
change to the Jewish community
in this country and what it will
mean ultimately to Israel, he
stresses. He urges Jews not to
lose sight of the Jewish com-
ponent in every involvement in
humanitarian efforts.

It was "France's traditional
responsibility in the area to send

pro-Giscard officials at the time
of the civil war in Lebanon.

circles close to him say, deeply

It is generally believed that the
French President was silently
pursuing a policy aiming at the
partition of Lebanon a

and apparently still believes in
which the Christian faction, once
an independent state, would turn
to France for political and

even "canton" would opt for
France and not for Israel as their
main protector.
Thus, at a time of general and
international decolonization,
Giscard could point to one ex-
ception to this rule: a former
colony which 33 years after
France's withdrawal, turns back
to its former ruler out of its own
free will.
According to these sources,
Giscard is convinced that all
those concerned Syria and
Israel would favor such a
French return to the Middle East
as both Damascus and Jerusalem
would profit in their turn. Under
the Giscard dream, Syria and
Israel would share in this par-
titioning of Lebanon and thus
support France's plan.
ORIGINALLY, the Elysee
circles felt that even 1,000 men
were all that was needed to
stabilize or destabilize Lebanon,
according to the viewpoint taken.
With this number, the Elysee felt
that even a different solution to
the Lebanese drama could still
give France a major influence in
that country and thus indirectly
in the Middle East. It now seems
that this dream, as most French
officials feared from the start, is
shattered and that France might
be doomed to send more men and
equipment for a war which is not

HOW MANY Jews are now in
prison in Argentina as a result of
this drive? How many have dis-
appeared from their homes in the
past 21 months? How many still
remain alive? Ram Nirgad,
Israel's Ambassador to
Argentina, says that he has been
conducting negotiations with
Gen. Albano Eduardo Jorge, the
Minister of the Interior of
Argentina, to uncover the real
facts and figures, but the results
have been indecisive.
Ambassador Nirgad presented
the Minister a list of at least 300
names of young Jews who were
taken from their homes and have
disappeared without trace. After
a week, the answer came that
only 100 out of the 300 Jews were
still in the hands of the
Gen. Jorge enumerated all the
reasons for their arrest and also
disclosed that some of them had
already been condemned by the
court. He said he had no in-

some of them, he indicated,
might have left the country.
There is widespread fear,
however, that they were kid-
napped and killed.

from Poland when he was three
years old and has been a journal-

prison. He was questioned about
his ties with David Greiever. the
Jewish banker who died in a
recent airplane crash in Mexico
and is said to have been the clan-
destine banker of the subversive
Leftist group Monteneros.
Timerman stated that his only
connection with Greiever was the
banker's stock holdings in the
newspaper, which Timerman
acquired after Greiever's death.
The authorities decided to con-
fiscate al] of Timerman's assets
and appointed a special custodian
for La Opinion.
This aroused public opinion.
The paper Buenos Aires Herald
published a sharp editorial, in
which it compared the imprison-
ment of Timerman with the
Dreyfus affair in Prance in 1894
and demanded that the author-
ities immediately disclose the
accusations against Timerman.
It said: "You must either put
him on trial or release him im-
mediately if the accusations are
not well based."

Strengthening Pre-School
(Davar): Children's day care
centers and pre-kindergartens are
the bedrock of education in Israel
and must be strengthened.
Otherwise, more children will
drop out along the way and it will
be very difficult for the high
school students from poor
families to graduate from high
school and even more so to enjoy
higher education.
Surveys show that more than
one-third of the high school
pupils in Israel need tutorial and
other help. The great majority of
these pupils drop out before
finishing high school. This only
strengthens the need to pay more
attention to preschool education.
A recent survey shows that the
pre-kindergartens and the day
care centers are of great help to
poor families and to working
mothers. The budget of these
institutions is covered mainly by
women's organizations. Today,
35,000 children go to these insti-
tutions daily but many more
thousands cannot be accepted
because of budgetary limitations.
The women's organizations do
not have the necessary funds to
enlarge their activities.
MOREOVER, some kinder
gartens and day care centers are
in danger of liquidation because
of inadequate financial parti-
cipation by the government and
municipalities in their costly
It is estimated that, in 1978,
the general cost for maintaining
day care centers and pre-kinder-
gartens may amount to IL 540
million. Currently, the govern-
ment finances less than 50
percent of the cost IL232
million while the working
mothers and poor families them-
selves supply IL 262 million.

The Maccabiah was a run-away
affair, the kids from kindergarten
through eighth grade competing
in sprints, bean-bag tosses, gold
ball-in spoon races, long jumps,
soccer kicks, basket-ball throws,
rope jumping, football throws, sit
-ups and push-ups.
There were winners in every
event, with plenty of ties for
second place: as a matter of fact,
most winners seemed to win by a
nose or a seam the competition
was that close. In some cases, it
even heated up the parents, who
coached, coaxed, cajoled and
"kitzled" their young-fry to make
it first over the finish line.

You Know...
Is Zbig One, Or Isn't He One?
(JTA) Three Senators
and various Administration
officials have forcefully
denounced a speech by Sen.
Lowell Weicker (D., Conn.)
in which he accused the
Carter Administration of
following "a policy of
confrontation with Israel"
and "appeasement" of the
Arabs and alleged that the
President's National
Security Advisor, Zbigniew
Brzezinski was urging that
the U.S. "disengage from
its historic alliance with
Weicker drew the heaviest fire
for his implied charge that
Brzezinski, who is chairman of
the National Security Council,
was acting out of anti-Israel and
anti-Semitic motivations.
THE WHITE House, in a
telephone call to the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, quoted
Brzezinski as having said that
Strolling behind the Chief
"the U.S. commitment to Israel
is unshakeable. It is deeply
ingrained in the fabric of our own
society They are deeply
binding moral ties. .
Weicker attacked the
Administration's Middle East
policy in a speech here to the 19th
annual policy conference of the
American-Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC), which was
interrupted 26 times by applause
from the 1.000 pro-Israel
He implied that the
Administration was trying to
make Jews the scapegoats for its
foreign policy difficulties and
noted that "time and time again'
in history "when national leaders
run into difficulties they found it
convenient to blame their
problems on the Jews and we
know the results."
Weicker said that the Senator
stood by his speech.
But Weicker's Democratic
colleague from Connecticut, Sen.
Abraham Ribkoff. said: "I think
it is an absolute outrage for
anyone, Jew or non-Jew alike, to
infer that there is anything in
President Carter or Secretary of
State Vance or Vice President
Mondale that is antipathetic to
Weicker Attacks Zbig

(JTA) President Carter
and his National Security
Advisor, Zbigniew
Brzezinski, were bitterly
attacked for their Middle
East policies and, in turn,
were personally defended in
an unexpected con-
of which, he said "go beyond the
bounds of criticism" and "im-
pugns the character of the
President of the United States
and other officials of this

own. The Senator is dead wrong,

it," Lipshutz said. He added that

drew applause.
frontation of national
political figures at the 19th
annual policy conference of
the American-Israel Public
Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) at the
Washington-Hilton Hotel
last week.
The attack was launched by
Sen. Lowell Weicker (R.( Conn.)
who, in effect, accused the
Administration and Brzezinski in
particular of using Jews as
scapegoats. "We know from
history," he said, "that time and
time again, when national leaders
ran into difficulties, they found it
convenient to blame their
problems on the Jews and we
know the results. If there is a
meaningful distinction between
those historical proclivities and
the signals which Brzezinski is
sending, I don't know what they
WEICKER'S remarks were
interrupted 26 times by applause
from the 1.000 AIPAC members
and guests. It was especially
thunderous when he declared: "If
I were President, and I had a
national security advisor who
singled out American Jews as an
impediment to my policies, I
would have his resignation before
sundown and his reputation for
A round of boos greeted White
House Counsel Robert Lipshutz
who, on the dais but not
scheduled to speak, took the
podium to respond to Weicker.
He declared his "deep sorrow"
over the Senator's remarks, some
SEN. DANIEL P. Moynihan
ID.. N.Y.) also defended the
integrity of Carter and Brzezinski
and the intentions of the
Administration in the Middle
East. It was Weicker's con-
tention that Brzezinski believes
"that world order politics"
should "replace balance of power
politics" and that this "requires
that the U.S. disengage from its
historic alliance with Israel."
According to Weicker, "the
Carter Administration, from its
inception, has deliberately
pursued a policy of confrontation
with the government of Israel"
that began before Prime Minister
Menachem Begin took office.
He charged that Admin-
istration policy included a
"blatant effort to divide both the
American people and even the
people of Israel on the matter of
the government of Israel" while
"our relationships with the Arab
states carry the unmiatakeable
odor of appeasement and the
arms package is only the latest
evidence of it."
RESPONDING to Weicker,
Moynihan prefaced the prepared
speech he was scheduled to
deliver with a defense of the
Administration's integrity. "The
great difficulties" between Israel
and the U.S., he said "is not the
sincerity of Carter or (Secretary
of State Cyrus) Vance or
Brzezinski nor the weakness of
their desire" to achieve a Middle
East settlement.
"They are men of transparent
honor," Moynihan said, recalling
Carter's pledge to Begin on the
White House lawn last week that
America's friendship for Israel
"will never waver."
Moynihan also referred to
Leonard Fein's comments in
Moment magazine, of which he is
editor, that Brzezinski holds
U.S. Israel ties to be "deeply
binding moral ties." In his
prepared speech. Moynihan was
generally critical of the
Administration policies.
MORRIS Amitay. executive
director of AIPAC who presided,
summed up the exchange by
remarking that "we are certainly
engaging in a spirit of give and
take We hear from both
parties, as always and we shall
continue to do so."
Another speaker of the evening
was Israel's recently retired Chief
of Staff. Gen. Mordechai Gur,
who accused Egypt of
precipitating and perpetuating
the present Middle East
negotiations impasse and warned
that the Carter Administration's
aircraft sales package to Israel,
Egypt and Saudi Arabia would
create "a shift in the balance of
power in the Middle East."

RIBICOFF said that while he
did not know Brzezinski as well
as he knew the others, "I think
Brzezinski is a dedicated man

is outrageous to infer that a

is absolutely no proof to that. I

Sen. Jacob K. Javits (R..
N.Y.I, himself a frequent critic of
the Administration's Middle

Administration was "tilting too
far in favor of the Arabs," but "I
cannot subscribe to the notion
that there is some animus against
Israel in this situation. I don't
think it is in the hearts or minds
of the American people either."

section of the population in the
Upper Galilee," Dr. Zvi Feine,
manpower development con-
sultant to the JDC, said. "After
finishing their schooling, it is our
hope that most of them will work
in their own communities. During
their first two years, when the
students take their academic
liberal arts courses, they will be
able to work in social welfare .
agencies in their communities
since their courses at the com-
munity college are held in the
afternoons and evenings.
"In the third and fourth years
they will study (class and field)
fulltime, and scholarships will
have to be provided. Many of the
students will work part-time
while attending school. Without
the branch at Tel Chai they
would not have been able to
secure their degrees."
Along with its manpower
training programs, the JDC-
Israel initiates, develops and
supports, in cooperation with
local agencies, a wide range of
health, educational and social
services for the aged, the han-
dicapped, the chronically and
mentally ill, the disadvantaged
and community centers. JDC
receives its fund mainly in the
U.S. from Jewish federations and
welfare funds through the United
Jewish Appeal, including the
Jewish Federation of Greater

"TODAY, the chairman's role
and authority are quite circum-
spect. The chairman must be the
true head of the agency and in
turn, responsible to the executive
and governors.
"If we succeed in vesting real
authority and accountability in
one place, we will have taken a
significant step toward achieving
excellence and innovation.
"Indeed, the Jewish Agency's
historic role suggests that each
time we have had the courage to
attempt something new, we have
become a catalyst for change.
"THAT is why WZO and the
Agency must together reevaluate
our approach to aliyah. That is
why we must reexamine how we
are delivering human services to
those living in Israel's border
communities. That is why we
must reach out beyond Israel
through WZO as well as the
Agency to find new, re-
sponsive ways of making our
Jewish tradition meaningful.
"And that is why we must
respond, as we will, to Menachem
Begin's personal plea that we act
anew to save Israel's next
generation the children who
are wasting away in the remnants
of the maabarot ... or crowded

the next generation will live a

common concerns of the Jewish
people as Israel approaches her
