Federation's main accomplish-

following high points: "This is
the year we passed the $2 million
goal in fund-raising. This is the
year our JCC program became so
important that it needs a new
home, and will soon have one.
This is the year our Family
Service, Chaplain, and Com-
munity Relations Committee did
so much for our people.
"Our Hebrew Day School is
now one of the best in Broward
County and this is the year we
sent more money to Israel than
ever before.
"THIS PAST year. Jacob
Brodzki made us an important
part of the national scene. We are
now considered by national UJA
and the Council of Jewish Fed-
erations to be a leading com-
munity, with the greatest poten-
tial for future growth.
"It is my intention to continue
to go forward in servicing our
local community and, at the same
time, increasing our help to our
fellow Jews in Israel, Russia and
other parts of the world."
Goodman appealed for a larger
body of lay volunteers. "We must
all come out of our shells and
work and give as never before "
he declared. "Israel needs us as
never before. Not even in war has
the situation been so critical. Our
brothers and sisters in Israel
must know that we in the United
States will not forget them or let
them down. They must never feel
that they stand alone."

Locke noted in this connection
that the UJA's telethon has been
successful over the past month in
reaching hundreds of con-

renewing their support.
The general chairman an-
nounced also that the campaign
total was still rising. He said that
a record $2,230,000 has been
raised so far in the 1977-78 cam-

$2.5 million. Joe Calig is the cam-

The drive among the mer-
chants is headed by Jack Nudel-
man, chairman of the Fed-
eration's Business Division.

tributions are also being given a
"specially designed and dis-

Elected to Be Members for Life
Affectionately regarded as the Jewish community's "elder
statesmen," Samuel J. Goldfarb and Sam Soref were elected to
be Members for Life of the Board of Directors of the Jewish Fed-
eration of Greater Fort Lauderdale.
Mr. Soref is a veteran member of the Federation board. Mr.
Goldfarb will be serving on the board for the first time. Both
men are in their seventies, with long years of service in Jewish
communal causes.
Mr. Goldfarb's main work has been with the UJA, which he
regards as his "magnificent obsession." He is a former New
Yorker. Mr. Soref was active for many years in the work of the
Milwaukee Jewish Federation and in a variety of other civic and
communal affairs.

'Year of Consolidation'
By Jacob Brodzki
Ladies and gentlemen, I wel-
come you to the annual meeting
of the Fort Lauderdale Feder-
ation, an institution which has
become the central address of the
Jewish communal life of our city.
Like my predecessors I will try
to give you a summary of our
activities for the past year, our
achievements and our low points,
and I leave it up to you, the
members of this organization, to
decide for yourselves where we
are now, and where we are
heading in the future. For myself,
if there is one term that I would
apply to the activities of this past
year it would be "A Year of
IN THE past couple of years
we initiated programs which
needed proper organizational
structure, formulation of policies,
and integration as part and
parcel of the Federation's daily
responsibilities. I think we
achieved this objective in a great
At this time, let me underscore
the extraordinary achievements
of our 1978 UJA campaign.
Under the most capable leader-
ship of its general chairman, Mr.
Charles Locke, hundreds of men
and women participated in the
most successful campaign we
ever had, and laid a solid foun-
dation for the years to come so
that the State of Israel and the
local beneficiaries will benefit
greatly from their efforts.
I applaud the commitment we
have seen this year on the part of
the campaign leadership and
their committees, but as I see it,
it is a matter of urgent priorities
to get a much greater number of
people involved in these efforts in
the future. I express my grati-
tude to the dedicated staff of our
campaign professionals.
THE WOMEN'S Division
kept pace in all areas of their
responsibilities including the
campaign and their results are
equally impressive.
This year saw the introduction
of one of the best of our activities.

Award To Brother Jacob
By Ludwik Brodzki
Ladies and gentlemen, last
year I was asked to nominate my
brother, Jacob, for the presidency
of the Federation. I respectfully
declined because I wanted him to
be nominated by his peers who
worked with him during his vice
This year I was privileged to be
asked to present Jacob with the
award for his presidential tenure.
I enthusiastically agreed and I
appreciate this opportunity
presented to me. This is a
pleasure I would not exchange for
anything, because how many
times in a lifetime does one past
president of an organization of
this magnitude have the oppor-
tunity to award his brother of the
same organization on behalf of
the whole community? Not very
JACOB, last year when you
were nominated for the presi-
dency, we had a discussion
similar to one between us 10
years ago when I was nominated
as the first president of the Fed-
eration. We agreed that one of us
would keep our furniture store
open every day while the other
brother would spend his time at
the Federation, and both of us
kept our bargain and we both
know it wasn't easy. But our love
for the survival of the Jewish
people and Israel made our task
I now wear two hats. As a
brother to a brother, I say to you,
Jacob, you did a hell of a job
during the past year and your
accomplishments were possible
not only because of your hard
and dedicated work, but your
straighforwardness, honesty in
dealing with others, and
humility. Intelligent and honest
men and women with the Fed-
eration immediately recognized
these qualities in you and rallied
and supported you, when it was
Thank you on behalf of all the
Brodzki's and blessed be the
memory of our parents, who
would be very proud today.

on behalf of the Jewish com-
munity for all of your accom-
plishments. And especially for
your unique capability in

Federation Comes of Age
This issue of The Jewish Floridian is replete with
news, photos, texts and other highlights of the Jewish
Federation's annual meeting. If there is a single thread to
it all, it can be found in th? apt and compatible statements
of the incoming and outgoing Federation presidents
Leo Goodman and Jacob Brodzki. Mr. Goodman said that
the Jewish Federation this past year "came of age." Mr.
Brodzki termed the year one of "consolidation." The
phrases bear on each other. Each is accurate as a summary
of what has happened here.
There can be no doubt about the consolidation. What
appeared cnly too recently to be random, free-floating, hit-
miss, try-on activities have jelled, been brought together,
consolidated into reward-yielding programs each with a
devoted following and each nurtured by devoted men and
women, lay and professional.
Leo Goodman's accolade to Jacob Brodzki that he
brought the Jewish Federation and the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Jewish community to the attention of the rest
of the American Jewish community is merited, indeed.
That, plus Brozki's role in putting it all together, is his
best legacy to us and our best return on his presidency.
Mr. Goodman cannot but improve the record. He is a
strong-minded, no-nonsense, business-oriented man a
man of temper, a gentleman to a fault, a man of
cultivation, a sportsman, a patriot, a family man. a con-
secrated Jew. a lover of Zion. The Jewish Federation is in
good hands. We salute him. We owe him this: the best of
ourselves in return for the best in him that he is about to
give to each of us.
Thank You Charles Locke
Charles Locke will soon step down as the Federation's
UJ A general chairman. He will step down to our applause
after a year that tried his soul but in which he led the
campaign to a record-breaking sum not far from the $2.5
million he dearly wished to attain. Charles Locke is still
trying to reach it. and inches forward every day.
He merits the thanks of the entire community for his
grit, for his ample devotion to its best interests. The more
his chairmanship brought and continues to bring in
UJA funds, the stronger we became and are. Thanks in
part to him, we are far stronger than we were a year ago.
And we're certain to become even stronger because
Charles Locke has just been elected as the Federation's
first vice president, that is, as first among his peers. It's a
new post. In it, he'U be a kind of assistant president
helping Leo Goodman advance and strengthen the Fort
Lauderdale Jewish community and the Jewish Federation.
Mr. Goodman and Mr. Locke promise to be a creative and
resultful team. They deserve our every support.
American Justice and the JDL
Feodor Fedorenko is on trial in Federal Court in Fort
Lauderdale on a charge that he concealed and therefore
falsified a Nazi criminal past when he applied for entry to
the United States and again when he applied for U.S.
According to the federal prosecutor, Fedorenko
flogged Jewish prisoners and was responsible for the
death of numerous Jews while serving as a guard in the
Nazi death camp at Treblinka. If found guilty, Fedorenko
faces deportation to his native Ukraine. If that happens,
he would face further prosecution as a war criminal.
His trial here is not on war criminal charges. It is on a
charge of falsification of his immigration and natural-
ization applications. The Jewish Defense League has been
demonstrating in front of the courthouse, asking for
Fedorenko's hide, asking for his death. JDL's behavior in
this is misleading and demagogic. While we appreciate its
fervor for justice, we cannot but reject its inflation of the
real issue before the court and its irresponsible inter-
ference with the course of justice.
We have the choice of believing that American justice
will prevail in a case of this kind or that it won't. We
believe it will prevail, as it did just the other day in
Chicago in a similar case involving one Frank Walus, who
was stripped of his American citizenship for concealing
that he was a wartime member of the Gestapo.
The JDL, however, is not impressed; it leaves
nothing to chance. It believes that only the JDL can mete
out justice. Sorry, JDL. That's the way of the Police
State, of Nazism, if you will. We don't need "Brown
Shirt" justice German, American or Jewish.

a similar position of power in
other Western countries as well.
It is now only second to West
Germany and leading the United

countries. In 1975. it was
estimated that the surplus was
about $67 billion, while the total
deficit of payments of consuming
countries, developed and under-
developed, was about $62 billion
In view of these circumstances.
Prof. Shwadran is critical of the
policy that Western countries
have adopted of trying to curry
favor with Saudi Arabia in-
dividually and submit to Saudi
pressures and wishes, in effect,
blackmailing themselves. The
Western world should unite to
adopt effective counter-measures,
he feels. If the U.S.. Japan, and
Western Europe would form a
solid, united front in an
irrevocable commitment, they
could stabilize policies and
monies, says the Tel Aviv Uni-
versity professor.
IT IS unlikely that the oil pro-
ducers would initiate a second oil
embargo, as they would stand to
lose more than they would gain.
Oil stockpiled by consuming
countries is sufficient to weather
a prolonged embargo, while Iraq
and Algeria could not survive
without oil exports for over 90
Oil from the North Sea and
Alaska would dull the acuteness
of the impact, and the United
States has offered to share its oil
with any country that is boy-
cotted. In an emergency, the U.S.
could cope with the crisis, a
circumstance which is precisely
what the Saudi Arabians would
want to avoid.
By not shifting to other energy
alternatives earlier, the U.S. has
allowed the Saudi Arabian,
valuable time to develop a strong
base of financial power, to
acquire networks of banks, to
become solidly involved in inter-
national financial concerns, and
to influence world foreign policy-
says Prof. Shwadran.
U.S. and Western oil-con-
suming countries are gradually
slipping into a position of cap-
tivity economic and political
- in the hands of the Saudi
Arabians from which it will
become increasingly difficult for
them to emerge and assert their
"WHILE AN oil embargo or
manipulation of petrodollars
would hurt Arab oil producers as
much as consumers and would
not be a logical course of action,
there is no telling what emotionai
reaction Saudi Arabia might
adopt." cautions Prof. Shwadran.
A fuller picture of the impact of
Middle East oil can be derived
from Prof. Benjamin Shwadran s
book. Middle East Oil Isauts
and Problems, published in 1977.
Russian MD, Arab
Hospital Save Israeli
TEL AVIV (JTAI An Israeli ship's officer who fell ill
aboard a tanker en route from Eilat to the Persian Gulf was
given emergency treatment by the physician of a Russian ship
and then flown to a hospital in one of the Arab Emirates where
doctors performed surgery that saved his life.
THE INCIDENT, reported in Al Hamishmar, involved
Ze'ev Leibovitz, 26, second officer aboard the tanker which
carried no doctor. According to the account, Leibovitz
developed pains in the lower abdomen.
A medical distress call was sent out, and the nearest
vessel, a Russian ship, changed course and reached the tanker
from which the ill man was transferred.
The ship was not equipped for surgery, and her Master
accordingly radioed a hospital in an Arab Emirate, explaining
in his message that the patient was an Israeli.
THE HOSPITAL replied that it made no difference, and a
helicopter was sent out to pick up Leibovitz.
After successful surgery he was flown to London to
complete his convalescence and has since returned home.

Until now, the case had been
dealt with within the limits
of the army. An undisclosed
number of episodes of
maltreatment of both observant
and non-religious soldiers have
come to light and several non-
coms and officers have been
disciplined for their direct
participation in such acts or
tolerating them.
BUT THE Poale Aguda has
launched a campaign denouncing
army officers in general for being
anti-religious and manifesting
bias against religious soldiers.
A related issue is the special
arrangement long observed by
the army with respect to yeshiva
students such as Lavie who serve
in the armed forces. As a rule,
yeshiva students are exempt
from active duty.
But many choose to serve
nonetheless and the conditions of
their service, worked out with the
approval of the religious
authorities, allow them to spend
much of their time in uniform
studying Torah.
THIS HAS irked may non-
observant soldiers whose
required period of service is
longer than that of the yeshiva
students. The Poale Aguda Israel
for its part wants the
arrangement abolished and
demands blanket exemption for

Fedorenko's Nerve Tics at Denaturalization Trial
____.________________________ .*. !__:...* rtf th* Warrior fr*r t hi* nnfnrtun
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
While Jewish Defense League
Members shouted "We shall not
forgive if we shall not forget,"
outside the building, the
Denaturalization Hearing of
Feodore Fedorenko began kst
week at Fort Lauderdale's U.S.
District Court.
Originally a Ukrainian,
Fedorenko. accused of killing,
beating and whipping Jewish
prisoners as an SS guard in
Treblinka, Poland, is being tried
by Judge Norman C. Roettger to
determine whether he lied about
his Treblinka activities when he
applied for U.S. citizenship. If he
is found guilty, Federenko could
face deportation hearings which
might result in his being sent to
one of any number of countries,
with the strong possibility of
further trials.
FOR OBVIOUS reasons, the
Fedorenko Hearing has become a
controversial public event with
hordes of media and large groups
from the general public at-
tending. Not all of those at-
tending were content with the
proceedings, however. During the
opening hearing, at least one
member of the JDI, was arrested
for continuously shouting into a
bullhorn outside the building, in
effect disrupting Judge Roet-
tger's thought processes.
Members of the public ad-
mitted to the courtroom, which
included a number of survivors
from the Holocaust, were ex
tremely well behaved. <>n tht
other hand, during some of the
more explicit testimony, several
people quietly broke down and
cried, yet did not disrupt the

scared and even somewhat meek.

AT TIMES, he appeared to
smile without even meaning to.
At other times, his nervous tics
and eyes indicated a sadness as
though he was overwhelmed with
his present situation.
During the first day's hearing,
the prosecution brought forth
three witnesses: John Wain, a
Criminal investigator for the
U.S. Immigration Service; Maria
Ratiker. now a retired In
gator from the Israeli Unit for the
Investigation ol Na/.i Crimes:
and Eugen Turowski, a former
inmate at Treblinka during
World War II.
The prosecution attempted to
establish Fedorenko's guilt by
retracing the investigation that
occurred, singling him out as a
war criminal after so many years
had passed.
THE. U.S. official. Weiss,
stated that he sent Federenko's
picture to Israel for their investi-
gation following interviews with
Holocaust survivors. Maria
Ratiker, recipient of this and
other photos, conducted an in-
vestigation that resulted in

Anti-Semitism Growing in Argentina
TEL AVIV (JTAI About 70 Jewish immigrants from
Argentina who arrived here said they sensed growing anti-
Semitism on the part of the authorities in that country.
They reported that other Jews in Argentina are preparing
to come to Israel because of the situation and are selling their
property, even at a loss.
THE NEW arrivals are mostly young couples with
children and several single men. Those who spoke about con-
ditions in Argentina asked to remain anonymous.
They said that while Jews are not arrested as such, kid-
napped or disappear, and the crack-down by the authorities
seemed aimed at radicals in general, anti-Semitic nuances have
emerged in the course of investigations of such groups.
THEY BELIEVE that anti-Semitism plays a part in the
present political turmoil in Argentina and spoke of cases where
the word "Judeos" (Jewel have been painted on Jewish shops
and business establishments.

T/uJetvuh Fbridian of Greater Fort Lauderdale
Leo Goodman Takes Reins
Continued from Page 1-A
new president called for wider
popular participation in the
Federation's annual Fall UJA
Mission to Israel. He under-
scored that American Jews can
give Israel's people the sense
"they do not stand alone" by
visiting Israel. "When we notify
you of the date of our mission,"
he said, "come along; enjoy
yourself, and say shalom to a
fellow Jew so that he knows 'We
Are One.'"
Goodman was strong in his
praise of Mr. Brodzki, Mrs. Anita
Perlman, the president of the
JCC, Harvey Kopelowitz of the
JCC board, and others for their
efforts in winning Federation
board approval for acquisition of
a IB-acre site for the JCC.
The new quarters, Goodman
declared, "will be available by the
winter of 1979. We will then have
one of the finest facilities in the
country, with a program second
to none. Our JCC will service
over 100,000 Jews in Greater
Fort Lauderdale covering an area
of 200 square miles."
"YES," he reiterated, "we
have come of age. But with this
comes the responsibilities and
obligations of maturity. To reach
our goal of $3 million, we will
need a minimum of 600 volun-
teers; our officers and board
members cannot do it alone. We
need your help. We beseech you
to join us in this effort."
Goodman also lauded Irving L.
Geisser, the Federation's execu-
tive director, "for his con-
tribution to this community."
Geisser's "guidance aa our
executive director had much to
do with our accomplishments to
date," Goodman declared.
Turning to Geisser, Goodman
said: "Irv, you are leaving us to
conquer greater fields. We wish
you well. To Sylvia, your family
and yourself: our gratitude and
our best wishes for your future
success, good health and happi-
ness." Geisser resigned his post
last month and will leave it
formally, effective June 30.
IN A simple ceremony before
he spoke, Goodman was handed a
gavel by Jacob Brodzki symbolic
of the presidency. Brodzki, in an
address which came as a sum-
mary of his one-year term in
office, described 1977-78 as "a
year of consolidation.''
He singled out the Kosher
Nutrition Program and the
Foundation of Jewish Philan-
thropies as chief among the
year's new and successful pro-
grams. He praised the work of
Charles Locke as campaign
general chairman; Mrs. Aniti
Perlman for her presidency of the
Jewish Community Center, at the
same time lauding Harvey
Kopelowitz of the JCC board and
Bill Goldstein, the JCC executive
director and his staff, for their
"dedicated efforts."
He also praised the work of the
Community Relations Committee
and Rabbi Leonard Zoll, its
director; the Jewish Family Ser-
vice and Sherwin Rosenstein, its
new director, noting at the same
time that Brian J. Sherr of the
Jewish Federation's board of
directors had just been named a
vice president of the JFS; gave
high praise to WECARE as a
"vigorous and resourceful arm of
the Jewish Federation, citing
Mrs. Rovi Faber as its founding
chairman; lauded the education
committee for its work with
rabbis and religious school
principals throughout North
Broward, and the education com-
mittee's advancement of the
Merkaz Torah or Hebrew High
School program; singled out the
work of the Chaplaincy program
under the chairmanship of Dr.
Alvin Colin and the professional
direction of Rabbi Zoll; and cited
the work of the Hillel Committee
under his brother, Ludwik

out immediately. They told
them: 'We know your life is in
danger. But we have no intention
of endangering our lives together
with yours.' And they didn't stop
there, they also appealed to the
police and to Sabena Airlines,
asking them to 'remove the
danger from this house.'
"SABENA felt that my
parents would have no peace in
Belgium and decided to transfer
them to South Africa until things
quieted down.
"When they were looking for
an apartment in Johannesburg,
friends told them about a Lip-
shitz family which intended to
settle in Israel and was ready to
rent their house. The family had
only one condition to make: their
son Stanley, who had to stay in
South Africa for another few
months, must continue living
there. The house was big and
comfortable, and my parents
agreed immediately.
"When I came one day to visit
my parents in South Africa, I
met Stanley. Very quickly, we fell
in love and decided to marry. But
Stanley also had a condition: he
would marry me only if I agreed
to live with him in Israel. Before
deciding to agree I visited Israel.
From my first moment here, I
knew this was my country, where
I would spend my life. Stanley
joined me and we were married.
Our guest of honor was Moshe
Dayan, who directed the
operation of freeing the hijacked
Sabena airplane and became a
very close friend of my father.
"MEANWHILE, my parents
returned to Belgium and now
they are very happy that I am
living in Israel. They visit us
from time to time and are happy
to see us and their oldest grand-
child, our son Yaron, who was
born in Israel and is, therefore, a
real Sabra."
From Hebrew University
Holland and Israel have
created a joint grant for con-
tinuing agricultural research on
the subject of "growing grass
and other kinds of fodder in arid
areas." A three-year project, the
research being conducted by
Hebrew University scientists is
aimed at creating a model
coordinated system for grazing
fields and crops in arid areas. It is
expected to be of special im-
portance for any developing
country with limited agricultural
areas and extensive arid zones.
Basic research began in 1972,
in a cooperative effort involving
Dutch scientists and researchers
of the Hebrew University and of
the Vulcani Institute in Israel.
The second stage, now underway,

cost to us. I must offer my
thanks to the JCC and to the
volunteers who have worked so
well together toward making this
the effective program it has
WE CAN all take pride in the
development of the Jewish Com-
munity Center which this year
under the inspiring leadership of
Mrs. Anita Perlman and Mr.
Harvey Kopelowitz has become
an important, vibrant and well
defined organization.
Its programs are relevant to
people of all ages and innovative
enough to attract many hundreds
of people, for example: the
evening with Abba Eban, the
varied observances of the thir-
tieth anniversary of the State of
Israel, the Holocaust Remem-
brance Program, a very success-
ful summer camp for children, a
complete program of activities
for senior citizens, and many
others too numerous to mention.
The need for a suitable location
for the Jewish Community Cen-
ter has hf.'n so pressing and
vitally urgent that the Board of
Directms of the Federation
endorsed a plan presented by the
JCC to acquire a new and
suitable facility which will enable
them to meet the needs of the
Community Center I'm sure it
will become the "HUB'' of ac-
tivities for the Jewish com-
ANYONE here who has been
in the Federation building can
honestly share with me the view-
point that the JCC's present
location is totally inadequate and
cannot serve the needs of our
expanding community.- Under
existing circumstances, Mr.
William Goldstein, the director,
and his staff have done a most
commendable job.
The Jewish Family Service,
which is- headquartered in Holly-
wood and is a beneficiary
organization of our Federation,
has become more important here
every year because of the in-
creasing work load and number of
people served in such sensitive
areas as counseling in family
affairs in times of crises, and
helping individuals with their
social problems.
We were instrumental in
changing their by-lasTB so that we
now have an executive vice presi-
dent, Mr. Brian J. Sherr, on their
board fty the North Broward
area, and we have a voice in all
matters affecting budgeting and
well with us.
The Community Relations
Committee under the direction of
Rabbi Leonard S. Zoll was very
active this year. It sponsored
several major mass letter writing
efforts to the members of Con-
gress and President Carter. We
were represented at several
meetings in the Nation's Capitol
and in various cities in Florida.
The committee also hosted a
number of meetings regarding
Israeli matters. I believe that we
made strides in getting our views
known to the non-Jewish com-
munity and I would like to
emphasize the fact of the per-
sonal contact made with Senators
Stone and Chiles, and Rep-
resentatives Burke and Rogers.

chairman of the CRC and we

establishment of a Foundation of
Jewish Philanthropies as a new
department of the Federation.
This Foundation works in the
very specialized area of bequests

AT THE beginning of my
report I mentioned some low
point-- i iiat have been evident the
past couple of years. Let ma tell
you about two of them that I
consider important.
The first is leadership da
velopment. With the larg*.
number of people residing in our
area and with the enormous job
ahead of us. although the
Federation is growing constantly
the responsibilities of leadership
must be shared by many more
volunteers capable of devoting
time and energy, and although
we do have an ext remelv capable
leadership potential among us.
very few volunteer to assume this
responsibility. As your outgoing
president, having been laced
throughout the year with a very
limited number of people to share
the leadership in the multi-
faceted activities of this
Federation, I urge those of you
who stay in the background to
please come forward, assume
positions in next year's cam-
paign, and volunteer to become
active in those committees which
interest you the most.
The second low point is the
failure of this community to
support the program of resettle-
ment of any of the Russian
Jewish families into our area. The
number of Russian Jews coming
into the United States doubled
this year and thousands are still
waiting in Italy to be relocated.
Miami, Hollywood and West
Palm Beach among other com-
munities are participating in this
program; we are still "debating"
it. It is my sincere hope that the
leadership of this Federation will
take affirmative action and
sponsor at least a few of these
families soon.

1 Shavuoth: festival of the Weeks:
a 0/ Greater Fort Lauderdale.
gig Miami, Florida Friday, June 9,1978
By Dr. Frederick R. Lachman
The festival of Shavuoth takes
its name from the Hebrew for
"weeks," "Pentecost" and also
"the 60th day." It is celebrated
on the sixth of Sivan (which this
year falls on June 11). According
to Orthodox and Conservative
tradition, it is also celebrated on
the seventh Sivan (June 12, this
year) outside of Israel.
One of the three so-called
pilgrim festivals," Shavuoth
; marked the end of the barley and
the beginning of the wheat
I harvest.
According to the Encyclo-
I paedia Judaica, it was prob-
ably a midsummer festival in
origin and taken over from the
Canaanites. It is stated in
[Leviticus: "From the day after
[the Sabbath, the day that you
bring the sheaf of wave-offering
you shall count fifty days, until
the day after the seventh week;
then you shall bring an offering
of new grain to the Lord."
Leviticus also states that the
sheaf was waved on the day after
[the Sabbath on the festival of
Passover. Thus Shavuoth falls 50
I days after this day.
I remarkable transformation of the
festival took place. Based on the
verse: "In the third month after
the children of Israel were gone
forth out of the land of Egypt,
I the same day came they into the
wilderness of Sinai" (Ex. 19:1),
the festival became the anni-
versary of the giving of the Torah
I at Sinai.
The description of the feast in
I the liturgy is the time of the
[giving of our Torah. The trans-
| formation was in accord with a
I process to be observed in the
[Bible in which the ancient agri-
Icultural feasts were transformed
I int.. festivals marking the anni-
Iversary of significant historical
jevents in the life of the people.
Both Passover and Sukkoth
lari connected with the Exodus: it
P natural to link Shavuoth
iwith this event.
IT IS customary to adorn the
ynagogue with plants and
flowers on Shavuoth because,
tradition has it, Sinai was a green
mountain, and with trees,
because Shavuoth is judgment
day for the fruit of the tree. Some
authorities disapproved of the
custom because of its similarity
to certain church rites.
In former times girls decorated
the windows, and boys brought
field flowers and ivy from the
forest and adorned the doors,
windows, and lamps on
Shavuoth. There was also a
custom of piercing eggs, empty-
ing them of their contents,
drawing a string through the
empty shells, gluing feathers to
them, and hanging them up in
the open to swing in the wind like
IT IS a home custom to eat
dairy products on Shavuoth
because the Torah is compared to
milk (Songs 4:11) and because
the law of the first fruits is placed
in juxtaposition to a law con-
cerning milk (Ex. 23:19).
In some communities it is cus-
tomary to eat triangular pan-
cakes 9tuffed with meat or cheese
because the Torah is of three
parts (Pentateuch, Prophets, and
Hagiographa) and was given to a
people of three parts (priests,
Levites, and Israelites) on the
third month through Moses who
was the third child of his parents.
In Israel, modern social life has
stimulated the adaptation of
religious ceremonies to a secular
society which wants to keep the
traditional national folk ways.
This is evident, for example, in
the Bar Mitzvah ceremony whose
religious significance in a secular
ociety is reduced but not elim-
inated. Under the initial impetus
of the Reform movement, the
individual ceremony has been
substituted by a collective "con-
firmation" ceremony similar to
that of the Christian rite.
This takes place at the
Shavuoth festival, chosen
because the traditional date of
the giving of the law on Mount
Sinai, it seems the proper season
for adolescent boys and girls to
celebrate their initiation into full
Jewish adulthood. As the
Shavuoth festival coincides with
the end of the school year, the
Judaica relates, the ceremony, at
times, bears the character of a
IN ISRAEL the collective Bar
Mitzvah has been introduced in
non-religious kibbutzim. The
ceremony takes place after the
children have performed some
task, usually socio-educational,
which was imposed upon each
individual child (or pair) by the
community, school, or youth
movement (for example, a week's
stay in a new settlement with a
newcomer's family in order to
help them: or in a religious
yeshivah in order to learn Jewish
ways strange to them).
The Bar Mitzvah child then
has to write a composition on his
experiences. He further relates
adventures during the per-
formance of the task at the "con-
firmation" and the lessons
derived therefrom are discussed
by the whole assembly.
Seven Weeks Af ten passovee
-Slaves Become fpee men
By Rabbi Samuel J. Fox
What does the name Shavuoth
as applied to the Shavuoth
festival mean?
Shavuoth 'begins Saturday
evening, June 10, and will be
observed in the Orthodox
tradition on Sunday and Mon-
day, June 11 and 12, with Yizkor
memorial services scheduled
Monday. Some of the more liberal
movements in Judaism observe
the holiday only one day.
There are two interpretations
of the name Shavuoth. One is
"weeks." In this vein, the festival
would be called the "Festival of
Weeks." This implies that the
date of the festival is determined
by traditionally counting the
weeks after the first day of Pass-
over and arriving at this holiday
after the seven weeks have been
This tradition has been taken
to symbolize the connection
between freedom and revelation.
It also signifies that seven weeks
of purification were necessary to
transform slaves into free com-
mitted humans ready to accept
the word of the Almighty.
THE OTHER interpretation of
Shavuoth is "oaths." This, in
turn, indicates the covenantal
relation that was arrived at
between the Almighty and the
Jewish people and the Almighty
on this day at Mount Sinai. On
the one hand, the Jewish people
took an oath to abide by the
Almighty's commandments. On
the other hand, the Almighty
took an oath to preserve and
protect His chosen people.
The Shavuoth festival is also
named Atzereth. The name
Atzereth itself has several
meanings. One meaning is
"restriction" from work.
In this vein, it is claimed that
since at the present time there are
no special rituals connected with
the holiday (as there were in the
days of the Temple, that is, the
two loaves, and the Bikkurim
first fruits) its basic charac-
teristic is the restriction from
A SECOND meaning is "con-
clusion" or "culmination." Such
a term is used to refer to the last
day of Passover and the last day
of Sukkoth, since they are both
the concluding days of their
respective festivals. This name
was used for the Shavuoth
festival, since it is the concluding
holiday of the spring festival
In a sense, it is the holiday
which ends the Passover idea
which has been extended to
Shavuoth by the ritual count.
There are some who feel the name
implies a gathering, such as the
gathering of the people in Jeru-
salem which is practiced on every
one of the three festivals Pass-
over, Shavuoth and Sukkoth.
holiday maRks BiRthoay of the decalogue
Seven weeks after Passover we
celebrate Shavuoth.
One of the three Biblical
festivals which originally were
agricultural, Shavuoth is the
shortest. Passover and Sukkoth
last a week or eight days;
Shavuoth is but one day, or two.
BUT IN a sense Shavuoth,
which is the centerpiece of the
three festivals, is the most im-
portant. Shavuoth, or the Festi-
val of Weeks, is a birthday.
According to our traditions, it is
the birthday of the Decalogue.
Sukkoth is the first Thanks-
giving Day. That's notable.
Passover is the day when
freedom was first proclaimed, to
humanity. That's important too.
But perhaps more significant is
the moral law. For what good is
freedom unless it is spiritualized
to check excesses?
Gratitude is a splendid
phenomenon. But gratitude for
ethical ideals moves us to a lofty
level of purposefulness.
Shavuoth has more names
than most holidays. It is known
as the Festival of the First
IN AN old cliche, Shavuoth is
described as the occasion when
Moses, after taking the Jews out
of Egypt, sought to remove
Egyptian ism out of the liberated
slaves. That fact was the "First
Fruits" of emancipation.
On Shavuoth we eat dairy
products, reminiscent of the idea
that the moral law is pleasant
and tasty.
May mankind more eagerly
savor the fruits of freedom and
by Shavuoth time find the for-
mula for international peace so
that all of us may enjoy the "milk
and honey" of meaningful living
in keeping with the mandates of
the Torah.

LONDON The October War
I of 1973, with its resultant trend
towards the moral and political
isolation of Israel in the inter-
national arena, has reinforced
this feeling of interdependence.
Israel is today perceived by the
mass of diaspora Jews (even
those indifferent to Zionist
ideology) as a force within the
Jewish people, and not some-
I thing apart from it.
Similarly, in Israel itself, there
I has been a parallel process of
Judaization, a greater awareness
of the common features in the
Israeli and Jewish destiny. This
intertwining of the Jewish and
the Israeli fate makes it almost
impossible to distinguish bet-
ween anti-Zionism and anti-
Semitism, even though from a
logical standpoint such a dif-
| ferentiation might be desirable.
THE FACT is that the sur
I vival of Israel is the core-issue for
[most Jews today because it has
been broadly accepted as crucial
to their own existence and self-
[definition. It is not simply one
political issue among others, but
the issue in terms of which the
future of the diaspora itself is
Hence, anything which tends
to diminish or weaken the
viability of the Jewish State is
seen as an assault on Jewish con-
sciousness in its innermost being.
For the first time in modem
Jewish history, anti-Zionism is
perceived by a broad consensus
of Jewish opinion as a major
threat to Jewish identity.
UNDER THE impact of the
Holocaust, Zionism became the
expression of a Jewish will to
independence which would no
longer be determined by defini-
tions imposed from outside. In
this respect, anti-Zionists operate
with an anachronistic concept of
Jewish aspirations, applicable at
best before 1939, and even then
highly unrealistic.
Moreover, they forget that
their own anti-Zionist rhetoric
has itself become a convenient
substitute for the unfashionable
and politically discredited anti-
Semitism of the Fascist era.
In the Soviet context, aca-
demic distinctions lose their
relevance anti-Zionism and
anti-Semitism are in practice
identical. Beneath the thin veneer
of Marxist Leninist verbiage, it
is not difficult to detect the
resurgence of the pogrom
tradition of the Tsarist autocratic
SIMILARLY, in the Moslem,
Arab world, latent Islamic anti-
Judaism has been mobilized for
decades in the service of the
political struggle against
Zionism. The territorial conflict
over Palestine has been greatly
exacerbated by the introduction
of atavistic, religious motifs and
the anti-Semitic myths of Euro-
pean racialism (the Protocols of
Zion, etc.) which have oolored
Arab perceptions of Israel.
In spite of President Sadat's
initiative, the radical Arab States
reject not only Israel's right to
exist, but also its essence as an
independent Jewish State exer-
cizing sovereignty over what
they regard as "Moslem"
territory. As in the Soviet bloc
countries, governmental anti-
Zionism spilled over into anti-
Semitic discrimination against
the Jewish minorities in Arab
Even in the West, events have
anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.
For this purpose it is quite un-
necessary to assert that Zionism
and Judaism are identical, as
some defenders of Israel have

shown that anti-Zionism as a
general ideological label can be
used against Jewish citizens,
especially where the government
adopts a pro-Arab policy. De
Ciaulle's notorious reference to
the Jews at his 1967 press con-
ference was perhaps a signal.
loyalty against Jews supporting
Israel and the growing emphasis
on the importance of the Jewish
lobby in the United States are
further cases in point.
The rise of a vociferous New
Left opposition in the West after
1967, which aggressively ad-
vocates the abolition of Israel as
a "racist," Fascist State, has
posed a further threat to the
security of diaspora Jews.
In Britain, the extreme Left
have largely spearheaded the
anti-Zionist assault on campuses,
which has led to the banning of
some Jewish societies and
restrictions on the free speech of
Jews supporting Israel in the
All these facts are indisputable
and undermine the claim that one
can sharply distinguish between
ZIONISM and Judaism are
related, but not synonymous.
There are Orthodox Jews who
reject Zionism in its present
political form just as there are
secular Jews who are indifferent
to Israel, and Israelis who feel no
affinity for Judaism. There have
been, and still are, many Gentile
supporters of Israel and Zionism
who would not dream of con-
verting to Judaism, just as there
are Jewish and Israeli an-
tagonists of Zionism who do not
deny their origins.
In short, not all Jews are
Zionists and not all Zionists are
Jews. To equate Zionism and
Judaism is to fall into the anti-
Zionist trap of presenting Jewish
nationalism as an undif-
ferentiated, monolithic entity
rather than an intensely diverse
and pluralist movement.
