Major Gifts Events
Planned on Gait Mile
John Streng, chairman of the
Gait Ocean Mile-UJA Campaign,
announced plans for two Major
Gifts events to be held on Jan. 8
and Jan. 10. The first event for
men only will be hosted by Alvin
Ghertner; the second by Henry
Hyman. Milton Keiner, chairman
of the 1979 Fort Lauderdale-UJA
Mission to Israel, will be the
guest speaker.
Plans for these events were
formulated at a recent organiza-
tional meeting of the Gait Mile
Campaign Committee. Streng
emphasized the need to act now.
"We must not lessen our pace.
The future of the State of Israel is
dependent upon a strong and
vibrant American Jewish
community. We are each per-
sonally responsible. We must
reaffirm and renew our Jewish
commitment."
Sidney Elkman, chairman of
the Major Gifts Division said,
"Without the immediate threat
of a shooting war. we must
continue to fight a war of unmet
human and social needs. Because
of rising inflation, major pockets
of poverty, spiralling costs of
immigration and absorption, we
must give more and raise more to
strengthen the quality of Jewish
life everywhere in the world."

Most Hateful'
Russia's Proliferating
New Anti-Semitism
By MARGY RUTH DAVIS
The scapegoat has been found.
The Russians have searched for
an enemy, and it is us.
Everywhere, in newspapers and
magazines throughout the Soviet
Union, we are described as
drunkards." "sex maniacs,"
"prostitutes." "gangsters,''
shock troopers" and "Nazis."
Not just us here, of course.
Primarily, attention is focused on
those "dread" spectors of
Zionism and Israel. But none of
us are the real target of these
vicious attacks. The barbs are
guiding their way. with precise
accuracy, to the hearts of Soviet
Jews.
THE NEW anti-Semitism is
not much different from the old.
except that it is more direct and
more vitriolic. It is most hateful
because it plants a seed that may
be harvested decades later and
there will still be Jews in the
USSR.
It is said that not one Jew was

Rotman Outlines Plans for Coral Springs Drive
Coral Springs UJA chairman,
Johl Rotman, announced that Dr.
and Mrs. Jeffrey Kroll will host a
$200 minimum cocktail party in
their home on Feb. 11. The
meeting will serve as a kickoff
event for the fundraising aspects
of the 1979 UJA campaign in
Coral Springs.
Rotman explained, "We intend
to combine our fundraising ef-
forts with educational programs,
Young Leadership and we will
urge our community to par-
ticipate in the Young Adults
Mission to Israel this summer.
Many of our neighbors in Coral
Springs are not aware of the work
the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale is doing and of
the services the Federation
provides for the community."
Rotman related that January's
schedule of events will begin this
education process. "On Sunday.
Jan. 7 one of our committee
members, Mark Steingard, is
inviting a group of his friends
and business associates to his
Women's Division Active at Palm-Aire
Palm Aire is bustling, as plans
are made for the Jewish
Federation of Greater Fort
Lauderdale, Women's Division
campaign to start on Jan. 22.
Lillian Hirsch and Lucille Kesner
are co-chairwomen.
The annual event was opened
with a planning committee
breakfast in the Peninsula Room
of the Spa. It was attended by 60
women. Janet Brody from
Youngstown, Ohio, vice pres-
ident of the national board of the
organization spoke of Israel's
increasing need for financial help.
At that time the decision was
made for each Condo Group to
have separate operations for their
fund-raising. Some groups are
having individual functions while
others have chosen to combine
their efforts for larger affairs. The
plans range from "at home
morning coffees," to an authentic
Israeli breakfast, to an evening
boat ride, Lillian Hirsch, Palm-
Aire Women's Division chairman
home for a presentation on our
Federation's role here in the Fort
Lauderdale community. Then on
Thursday, Jan. 25. Mr. and Mrs.
Melvin Gerber are hosting a
Young Leadership meeting in
their home. Sam Haber, honorary
executive vice president of the
Joint Distribution Committee,
will be the guest speaker. Haber
is an incredible human being and
it's truly a privilege for Coral
Springs to have the opportunity
to meet him."
We recognize the unique
challenge of Coral Springs. '
Rotman emphasized, in regard
to doing the best possible job for
our Jewish community and for
Israel. Our plan to incorporate
education into our most needed
fundraising campaign will hope-
fully make more of the com-
munity aware of this phase of
Jewish life in South Florida."

said.
Even though most of the
women on the committees are
"retirees," they pride themselves
on not being retired from meeting
their responsibilities to their
fellow men and are diligently
trying to provide interesting, in-
formative events for the con-
tributors." she added.

Silence Is Not Golden
The United Nations Economic, Scientific and
Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has done it again.
It adopted two Arab-sponsored resolutions con-
demning Israel. One, by a vote of 59-22 and eight
abstentions, with the United States and most
European countries voting against it, condemned
Israel for its archaeological digs in Jerusalem.
The other, by a vote of 64-4 and 26 abstentions,
accused Israel of depriving the Arabs in the ad-
ministered areas of their educational and cultural
rights and called on UNESCO's director general to
send a mission to "occupied Jerusalem" to in-
vestigate the situation.
This was hardly news about an organization
which evoked almost universal protest from writers,
artists and scientists in 1974 for its anti-Israel
resolutions and provoked the U.S. to withhold its
dues for 1975-76.
What was news was the vehemence with which
Egypt attacked Israel for its "obstinacy" regarding
the administered areas, thereby failing "to create a
propitious atmosphere for peace," and the stonefaced
silence by the U.S. delegation both before and during
the voting on the resolution condemning Israel on
the issue of the digs. Not only did it refrain from
criticizing the resolution, but it did not urge its
traditional friends and allies to vote against the
resolution.
In an effort to explain, or as it turned out, to
explain away, its silence, the U.S. chief delegate said
after the vote that the delegation kept silent because
the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty talks were in
progress in Washington "and we did not want to
inflame the debate which might have been prejudicial
to these talks."
In a weak-kneed effort at reassuring Israel of
U.S. support, the American chief delegate tried per-
functorily to defend Israel against charges that it
was denying Arabs their rights. But even this was
tempered with an assertion that the U.S. would
never, but never, withdraw from UNESCO regard-
less of this or future votes. This, as the saying goes
is where it's at.
Black Day for Dutch
The release of convicted Nazi war criminal Pieter
Menten by a special tribunal of the Hague District
Court was a shock to all who believe in justice. The
surprise decision was especially outrageous in that it
came on a technicality, Menten's claim that the late
Minister of Justice Leendert Donker promised him in
1952 that he would never be prosecuted for his
wartime activities.
Assuming this promise was actually made does
not mean that it had to be fulfilled by the present
Dutch government. What right did a single
government official, even a Justice Minister, have to
excuse someone guilty of heinous war crimes.
Menten was found guilty of the mass murder of
Jews, many of them children, and others in a Polish
village. He was then, though a Dutch citizen, serving
with the Nazi SS.
Nazi war criminals must be punished, not just for
revenge, but to educate the world on the crimes of the
Holocaust and to attempt to assure that genocide
will not happen again. As Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman
(D., N.Y.) recently said, "You cannot permit mass
murder to go unpunished, because then, in a way,
you have tolerated it and condoned it."
This is why there is a worldwide effort going on
to urge the West German government to extend its
statute of limitations on Nazi war criminals beyond
Dec. 31. 1979 when it is due to expire.
The struggle to get Germany to change the
expiration date will be a difficult one but must be
made to prevent the participants in the worst
atrocity in human history from escaping unscathed
The decision m the Menten case has hurt this cause
It was as the Dutch Jewish journalist Hans Knoop
whose investigation brought Menten to trial, said ,fa
black day for Dutch justice." '
'"Jewish Floridian
A Leaf From Jewish Experience
Has the American Jewish com-
munity, in building its way
slowly, patiently, but effectively
to rather complete acceptance by
practically all facets of American
citizenry, enriched the civic
commonwealth of the United
States? |
As we have struggled to reduce
prejudicial attitudes and
discriminatory practices and
then moved on to warn the world
of the core meaning of Holocaust
and the right of the Jewish people
to be secure and respected in the
ancient homeland, have we
helped fellow Americans shape
better strategy and develop more
successful tactics for dealing with
urban crises, the curse of racism
and the oppression of those still
straining to be free and equal?
THESE PENETRATING
queries seem more than ever now
to be running through the minds
of leaders real and self-ap-
pointed in the American
Jewish community while the
fallout from Camp David settles
over the lives of all.
On every agenda, in scores of
forums, at national and interna-
tional meetings, such mental
probing is manifest.
One helpful example has been
provided recently by two com-
panion pieces about the
machinery of community
relations. In the first pertinent
article, an interview with Samuel
Spiegler upon his retirement after
32 years of service with the
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council, we
are afforded an excellent way to
trace the uphill, but largely
successful battle by reasonable
and responsible people for the
respect and even the admiration
of Americans at large for the
Jewish community.
In the second item, dealing
with the role played by the little-
known Community Relationsl
Service of the U.S. Justice
Department in the American-
Nazi offensive in Skokie, Illinois,
we witness how seeds sown in the
councils of the American Jewish
community bore good fruit when
transplanted to the federal scene.
These parallels merit close I
scrutiny.

JERUSALEM In many
ways, some indefinable, others
more identifiable, the Knesset
seems to have lost some of its
prestige and dignity during its
present term. The elections last
year brought to Israels
Parliament some 50 new
members.
For 30 years Menaciiem Begin
had been an outstanding
parliamentarian who was wont to
call the Knesset "my second
home." On becoming Prime
Minister, Begin pledged to
preserve and even enhance the
Knesset's status and prestige.
And, indeed, he has made various
attempts to fulfill this pledge.
Begin addresses the Knesset's
plenum more frequently than his
recent predecessors. And he
spends more time than his
predecessors did in the Prime
Minister's Office suite in the
Knesset building.
But these actions on Begin's
part have not prevented a decline
in the prestige and authority of
the House.
ONE OF the main objective
causes has been the peace
negotiations. Even though the
peace process started with an
impressive and dramatic scene in
the Knesset plenum (Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat's speech)
which brought the Israeli
Parliament into the focus of
world attention, the peace
process was subsequently
pursued behind closed doors, far
from the public and parlia-
mentary eye.
The natural necessity for
secrecy during the delicate
negotiations prevented the
Knesset and even its prestigious
Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee, from being informed
and updated about the various
stages of the political talks
between Egypt, Israel and the
U.S.
Consequently, the Committee,
which is the main parliamentary
supervisory organ over the
government's foreign policy,
could not play a significant role
in the issue which has preoc
cupied Israeli public opinion over
the past year.
NEITHER WOULD the
Knesset plenum fulfill this
function; people knew that the
real events were taking place on
the Cabinet level alone.
Another reason for the waning
of the Knesset's prestige was the
government's failure, especially
during the early months, to fill
the parliamentary agenda with
legislative activity. During its
first year, the Ninth Knesset
dealt with relatively unimportant
bills, most of them aimed at
establishing changes in existing
fiscal laws.
Only towards the end of the
1978 summer session did the
government complete the
drafting of a number of new bills
(most of them originally initiated
by the previous administration)
and present them in the Knesset.
These bills will fill out the
Knesset's winter session which
commenced in November, with a
respectable mass of legislative
business.
But the main cause of the
decrease in the Knesset's dignity
is its personal composition. For
the first time in its history, one of
the present MKs has a criminal
past, while another was publicly
under suspicion of criminal
activities.
CHARLIE BITON, previously
a "Black Panther" leader and
now a Knesset member for the
Communist Party, was convicted
several times on criminal charges
before he became a member of the
Knesset. These charges had no
connection with his public ac-
tivity as one of the Black Pan-
thers.
Shrnuel Flatto-Sharon
established a precedent in
parliamentary life through his
successful campaign for Knesset
election at a time when he was
wanted by the French police on
fraud charges. Charlie Biton has
been involved in several
parliamentary incidents, in-
cluding the disruption of an
interior Committee session which
he achieved by encouraging somi
30 women relatives of prisoners
to burst into the committee hall,
screaming and running wild'
without heeding the chairman's
orders.
On another occasion, in the
plenum, Biton flagrantly refused
to obey the Speaker's instruction
which resulted in the latter or-
dering Biton out of the House.
Another time Biton publicly
accused without proof
hijzhranking Education Ministry
officials of leaking matriculation
exam papers to candidates.
FLATTO-SHARON has had a
negative impact on
parliamentary life in a different
way. As an MK he did virtually
nothing. During the first year of
his parliamentary career he
addressed the plenum less than
five times. He failed to learn
Hebrew and his activity in the
committees was rare too. At the
same time, FlattoSharon made a
name for making grand
promises; he would buy El Al,
the national airlinee; he would
put up housing for young
couples; he would purchase the
famous French superjiner
France "; he would establish a
casino in Eilat; would bring three
million tourists to Israel, and so
forth. *
What Flatto-Sharon did ac-
complish was a "holocaust
party held in his villa for many
invited guests (few of whom
actually came) at which he
promised to project the American
TV serial Holocaust. The viewers
saw only a very small part of the
film because Flatto-Sharon cut
the projection and invited them
to a lavish buffet.
However, by pretending to
show Holocaust, Flatto-Sharon
Brt'li K bringin aevenl
MKs to his home, an act that
seemed important for a man
whom the Israeli police were
investigating on suspicion of
"legal campaigning activity in
the election.

Jewish Community of Spain
Gets Full Religious Equality
r
NEW YORK Spain's 12.000
strong Jewish community
achieves full religious equality as
one feature of the new Spanish
constitution approved in yester-
day's nationwide referendum.
"This dramatic change in the
situation of the Jewish and other
non-Catholic religious minor-
ities in Spain truly deserves to be
hailed as one of the major steps
toward greater democracy incor-
porated in the 169 articles of this
new, basic Spanish document."
declared Richard Maass, pres-
ident of the American Jewish
Committee.
The key clause in the Consti-
tution is its Article 16. which
guarantees religious liberty both
for individuals and communities,
and goes on to declare that no one
shall be obliged to declare his
religion, ideology or beliefs.
FOR SPAIN'S Jews, the new
document marks the accomplish-
ment of a struggle to achieve
equality that has taken over 30
years, the AJC pointed out.
First, there was the drive to have
the right to publicly perform
Jewish services, denied under the
Condordat between Spain and
the Vatican of post-Spanish Civil
War days.
Then came the building of the
first modern synagogue in Spain,
in Barcelona, in 1955, but
without any exterior sign that it
was a Jewish building. Then in
Madrid, in 1968, came an
inauguration of a synagogue in a
ceremony marked by the
presence of government officials,
Hut even today, certain
limitations exist on full Jewish
communal exercise the com-
munity, for example, cannot own
its religious properties directly
which the new Constitution will
make possible.
THE NEXT STEP in im-
plementing the Constitutional
guarantee of full equality will be
the passage of a law establishing
the relations between the Spanish
government and religions in the
country.
The text of such a law has been
the subject of more than a year's
discussion between represen-
tatives of the Spanish govern-
ment and representatives of the
different religious communities.
It was just one year ago. in an
unprecedented move in Spanish
history, the AJC noted, that the
government authorized the
Minister of Justice to bring both
Jews and Protestants into full
consultation, along with
Catholics, on the drawing up
both of the Constitutional clauses
on religious liberty and the draft
law on religion.
The fact that the new Con-
stitution guarantees equality
does not mean there will be the
kind of separation of Church and
State known in the United
States. A first draft of the Con-
stitution did declare that Spain
should be a "non-confessional
state. This, however, was
dropped in the face of strong
protest by Catholic authorities,
who declared that although not
opposed to separation of Church
and State, they wanted stronger
Constitutional safeguards on
their rights to teach and preach.
THE COMPROMISE adopted
calls (in article 16.3 of the Con-
si it utionl for public authorities to
take into consideration the
religious beliefs of Spanish
society and consequently
maintain cooperative relations
with it and other religions."
This compromise lays the
ground for arrangements
whereby methods of financing
religious education but for all
religions will be worked out in
cooperation with the State.
Religious cults of the kind so
much in the news in recent weeks
will have no status in the
country, by the terms of the draft
law on religion, since this makes
room only for "recognized
religions."
Several other articles in the
new Constitution are also of sig-
nificant importance for Jews and
other minority as well as
majority groups in Spain, the
AJC noted. One is article 27.3.
which guarantees the right to
parents that their children will
receive religious and moral
training in accord with their own
convictions. Another is the ar-
ticle that deals with marriage and
divorce.

1 he original challenge to the law. said an appeal will be made to
the Supreme Court.
PEARL's original suit was approved in a federal court in 1977
on the grounds that the state law was unconstitutional since it
gave money directly from the state treasury to the religious
schools. The National Jewish Commission on Law and Public
Affairs, which represented Jewish day schools, and other groups
appealed to the Supreme Court which ordered the case reviewed
by a lower court. The three-member court cited a 1977 Supreme
Court ruling which permitted some state tests in private
schools:

UJA Rabbinic Cabinet Meets in Illinois National UJA Shabbat
NEW YORK More than half
the members of the approxi-
mately 100-member United
Jewish Appeal Rabbinic Cabinet
attended their recent annual
meeting at Lake Bluff, 111.,
despite the season's first heavy
snowfall.
Rabbi Joseph H. Lookstein,
chairman of the Rabbinical
Cabinet said the attendance plus
the 15 percent increase in the
Cabinet's pledges to the new
campaign indicated "the in-
creasingly vital role of the
Cabinet in UJA campaigns,
particularly in this year of Jewish
renewal."
The workshop sessions on
"Community and Leadership"
and "The Rabbinic Role in Fund-
raising" were led by Prof.
Bernard Reisman of Brandeis
University. Plenary sessions
included presentations on the
impact of the Camp David talks
by Prof. Steven Spiegel of the
University of California in Los
Angeles, Zvi Brosh, Minister of
Information and Press of the
Embassy of Israel and Rabbi
David Polish of Chicago on the
subject of educating for peace.
On the issue of Soviet Jewry, the
rabbis heard from James Rice,
executive vice president of the
United Jewish Philanthropies of
Chicago.
All presentations, including
several formal and informal
sessions on Project Renewal a
UJA program in partnership
with Israel's people to improve
the lives of 45,000 immigrant
families in 160 urban areas in
Israel were evaluated in terms
of their application to effective
rabbinical campaigning. The
meeting included an Operation

NEW YORK The third
annual United Jewish Appeal
National Shabbat will be cele-
brated in synagogues throughout
the country on Feb. 24, ac-
cording to an announcement by
Rabbi II. Lookstein, chairman of
the UJA Rabbinic Cabinet. The
date coincides with Shabbat
Shekalim, when the Bible portion
deals with the responsibility of
Jews to sustain Jewish life.
Rabbi Lookstein named
Rabbis Bernard S. Raskas of
Minneapolis and Chaim Stern of
New York co-chairmen of the
UJA Shabbat.
"The word shekalim clearly
points out our responsibility to
translate our commitment into
direct giving," explained Rabbi
Raskas. Focusing on this con-
cept, congregations in most
American communities on Feb.
24 will study the mitzvah (com-
mandment) of tzedakah, par-
ticularly the work of the UJA and
community federations.
This year, with the commem-
oration of the 40th anniversary of
the UJA. the National Shabbat
program also will include a
tribute to members of the com-
munity who were founders and
campaign leaders in National
UJA and their local federations.
Information and materials on
the National Shabbat may be ob-
tained from Rabbi Melvin L.
Libman, director of the UJA
Rabbinic Cabinet.

NEW YORK Operation
Pony Express '78, a national air-
borne cash collection mission,
ended the United Jewish
Appeal's year-end effort to reach
its $302 million cash goal with
planes provided by national
leaders flying into some 200
communities, including Fort
Lauderdale, to pick up checks on
Dec. 27.
"Cash is ahead for the first
time in four years," said Stanley
L. Sloane, UJA National Cash
Chairman. "But Pony Express is
our way of insuring that we pick
up enough money to reach this
record cash goal for a peacetime
year."
"Pony Express has proven to
be successful in the past," said
Mitchell Rasansky of Dallas,
chairman of Operation Pony
Express, and creator of the
concept. "And we have every
reason to believe that our ex-
panded program this year will
prove to be even more suc-
cessful."
Planes for the Pony Express
'78 fleet have thus far been
donated by Arant Sherman of
Davenport, Iowa; Bruce Foote of
Flint, Mich.; Tom Hector of
Detroit; Mort Epstein of Atlantic
City; Carl Albert of Los Angeles;
Ron Rich of St. Louis; and Peter
Seideman of New York.
"These people not only donate
their planes,'" said Sloane, "but
they also staff them and provide
the fuel at no cost to the UJA.
They understand that December
has to be a $100 million month
to keep the cash flowing into our
lifeline for our fellow Jews in
Israel, around the world and at
home."
During the UJA 40th Anniver-
sary National Conference on Dec.
7-10 at the New York Hilton
Hotel, about $6.5 million was
presented to Akiva Lewinsky,
treasurer of the Jewish Agency
and Stanley L. Sloane at the
Cash Presentation Line.
Bermuda Club Sets
UJA Drive for 1979
In Reply to Hussein
As Jan. 17 draws near, the
Bermuda Club Campaign Com-
mittee, under the chairmanship
of Bernard Simms. has gone into
high gear to make this year's
drive the most successful to date.
As Simms explained to his
fellow Bermudians, "If this were
the best of worlds, there would be
no need to undertake a UJA drive
this year BUT, as long as
Israel needs our help and as long
as there are Jews in need in the
Arab countries, in Russia, in
Latin America, and right here in
Fort Lauderdale, I know that you
will want to do your full and fair
share, as you have so admirably
done in previous years."
Accordingly, Bernie Simms is
asking everyone at the Bermuda
Club to reserve the date of
Wednesday evening, Jan. 17 at 8
p.m. and be at the Bermuda Club
Auditorium. At that time, Mrs.
Esther Hoffman and Leonard
Laufer, who are "dedicated and
devoted people to all Jewish
causes," will be honored.
In addition, the noted Israeli
speaker and entertainer, Danny
Tadmore, will be the special
guest for the evening.
The Campaign Committee
meets every other week to report
on progress and finalize plans for
a successful UJA drive.
UJS. Angers Israel on Settlements Margate UJA Sets Events
WASHINGTON The
United States, replying to 14
questions raised by King Hussein
of Jordan regarding a West Bank
settlement, angered Israel by
hinting that Prsident Carter
expected Israel to begin clearing
out the settlements on the West
Bank at the end of a five-year
.ransitional period.
The top-secret contents of the
American replies were made
public in part by the syndicated
columnists, Rowland Evans and
Robert Novak, and verified by
the State Department.
THIS IS NOT the way that
Israel understands the Camp
David accord regarding the West
Bank. It believes that there is
nothing in the accord which
would bar Jews from settling
anywhere in the Biblical Land of
Israel of which Judea and
Samaria (the West Bank) are a
part.
During the five-year period,
according to the American reply
to Jordan, Israel, Jordan, Egypt
and the Palestinians are pledged
to restore the "legitimate rights
of the Palestinian people,"
consistent with Israeli security.
In reply to Hussein's questions
about the status of the Israeli
settlers, and whether there would
be any settlements after the five-
year transition, the U.S. said:
"Whatever number that might
remain beyond the transitional
period would presumably be
agreed to in the negotiations
concerning the final status of the
West Bank and Gaza.''
THIS INFURIATED Prime
Minister Begin, according to the
columnists, and it was to
demonstrate Israel's defiance of
Carter for implying that the
settlements would become
vestigial remnants that Begin
announced the "thickening" of
the settlements.
Evans and Novak, exercising
their clear anti-Israel bias,
declared that this was merely one
more "betrayal" by Begin of
Carter's Middle East peace
hopes.
Among the questions by
Hussein was one demanding to
know what the U.S. position was
on whether the self-governing
authority to be created on the
West Bank included East
Jerusalem, "both in terms of

THE AMERICAN response
was that "the U.S. will support
proposals that would permit
Arab inhabitants of East
Jerusalem, who are not Israeli
citizens," to vote in the election
leading to self-rule.
Further, the columnists say,
those Jerusalem Palestinians
could share "in the work of the
self-governing authority itself."
This is in line with frequently
iterated American policy towards
the Holy City. Washington has
consistently opposed Israel's
legal power to absorb the city

TEL AVIV Israeli Air Force planes hit
terrorist bases in south Lebanon
Dec. 20 in retaliation for the 14
terrorist attacks committed in
Israel during the previous six
weeks. An Israeli army
spokesman said the air strike,
from which all planes returned
safely, was aimed at terrorist
bases and training camps in the
Dahar el-Buri, Kassmiyeh and
Burj el-Shimali regions.
The spokesman said there were
scores of terrorists in buildings
and tents at the bases. The raid
came a day after an explosion in
East Jerusalem injured four
Arabs and two Jews. The ex-
plosive device went off just
outside an Arab butcher's shop
near the Jaffa Gate in the Old
City. Israeli sources said the 14
terrorist acts resulted in four
people being killed and 67 in-
jured.
Following the Israeli air raid
there was a Katyusha rocket

Ambassador Simcha Dinitz and Vice President Mondale smile at the crowd of over 600
people who attended a National Farewell Dinner of Tribute in honor of Israel's
Ambassador to the United States and Mrs. Dinitz.
Headlines
Mondale In Salute to Simcha Dinitz
Vice President Walter F. Mondale joined with
over 600 members of the Washington Jewish
community recently in saluting Israel's
Ambassador to the United States, Simcha Dinitz,
and his wife, Vivian, at a National Farewell
Dinner of Tribute at the Washington Hilton
Hotel. The dinner was held under the auspices of
State of Israel Bonds.
In his remarks, the Vice President lauded
Ambassador and Mrs. Dinitz as "two of the most
brilliant, decent and warm people" he had known.
The Vice President expressed his belief that the
breakthrough at Camp David would ;le,ajl te a
treaty of peace between' fetael and Egypt, and
counted Ambassador Dinitz "among the builders
of peace in the Middle East."
Twenty-five victims were rushed to Shaare
Zedek Hospital in Jerusalem after terrorists
attacked a passenger bus near Jericho recently.
Despite a doctor's strike at the hospital on that
day, the full emergency staff of the hospital
arrived quickly from their homes.
Shaare Zedek had been alerted by police only
minutes after the attack, which left three dead
and 42 wounded. The wounded included tourists
from England, Canada and Sweden who were
returning to Jerusalem from a visit to the Dead
Sea.
Shaare Zedek Hospital is a 105-year-old med-
ical institution which dedicated its new $50
million medical center on Nov. 6.
in the United States and Israel "think we have."
Mann spoke at the American Jewish Press
Association's mid-year conference in San
Francisco. He mentioned as an example of the
limitations of Jewish influence the success of the
Carter Administration in winning Congressional
approval of its war planes pact with Saudi Arabia
and Egypt. He said "sensible politicians knew
there are limitations." adding "we will win some
and lose some."
Theodore Mann, chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish Organiza-
tions, declared that American Jews "have much
more leverage" on U.S. policy "than our meager
population implies," but "much less than some"
Lester Polonsky became the first full-time
civilian rabbi of Anchorage, Alaska for Temple
Beth Sholom when he was installed in early
November. Although it is a Reform congregation,
the rabbi, who arrived here last July with his wife,
Helene. and their young son, Seth. from Queens.
N.Y.. said, "we will service whoever wants to be
served."
Temple Beth Sholom was organized in 1958.
Over the 20 years until Polonsky arrived here, the
congregation had been dependent on services of
the Air Force rabbi assigned to Elmendorf Air
Force Base. Polonsky has the double distinction
of being the first civilian rabbi in Alaska and of
having his first full-time congregation.
Although recently refused emigration yet
again and separated from their son, Igor,
who has reached Israel, Moscow actiuists
Vladimir and Izolda Tufeld look ahead
optimistically to their future liberation.
A delegation of communal leaders and sup-
porters of the Jewish National Fund of America
from all parts of the nation will embark on Jan. 3,
1979 on a mission to Israel for the dedication of
the Hubert H. Humphrey Parkway.
The Humphrey Parkway, which will be the
major highway of the American Bicentennial
Park southwest of Jerusalem, is being con-
structed as a joint Israel-American tribute to the
late Senator. The scenic road, which will run for
several miles along mountain ridges and down
rocky slopes, will serve as the access to park
facilities and as a much-needed link between the
coastal plain, the mountain settlements in the
region, and Jerusalem.
JNF officials plan to designate the entrance to
the parkway with an appropriate landmark in-
scribed to the memory of the late U.S. Senator.
Latest developments in Iran were reported on
at the annual meeting of the Joint Distribution
Committee in New York Wednesday, it was
announced this week by Donald M. Robinson

Michael Schneider, who took over as JDC
director for Iran in August, flew to New York to
deliver a first-hand account of the current
situation.
More than 100 members of the Board of
Directors attended the meeting, which adopted a
budget and program for 1979. Ralph I. Goldman
executive vice president, delivered a year-end
report on JDC's worldwide operations.
Also featured was a report on the Jewish com-
munity of France by Baron Guy de Rothschild
president of the Fonds Social Juif Unifie. Baron
Kothschild, who is the head of the French branch

cheon session.
300 Israeli Arabs Return
From Pilgrimage to Mecca
JERICHO (JTA) About
300 Israeli Arabs returned from
their first pilgrimage to Mecca
since 1948. They reported that at
least three of their people died en
route. They were weary and not
too pleased. This year, for the
first time, Arab citizens of Israel
were allowed by the Saudi
authorities to visit the holy place
of Islam.
At the end of last month, some
3,000 Israeli Arabs had left for
Mecca, many of them elderly
people. During the three-week
journey, the pilgrims spent days
on buses, slept out of doors, had
no medical attention and were
charged exhorbitant prices for
minimum services, the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency was told by
Mohammad Said Kassem, one of
the pilgrims.
A BOTTLE of plain water was
sold for SI; an egg for 30 cents
They said they had heard that
the Saudi authorities were not
going to charge them the special
pilgrimage tax of some $135, but
the tax was levied by the travel
company even before they left,
and they did not know whether
they would be reimbursed.
The Jordanians, whose country'
the pilgrims crossed enroute to
Saudi Arabia, apparently were
not very hospitable either. On the
return trip, many of the pilgrims
wanted to visit relatives in
Amman.
But according to those
arriving, only a few were allowed
to do so. They were all assembled
on the Jordanian side of the
Allenby Bridge, waiting to cross
the bridge back home.
CONTRARY to an agreement
with Israel that they would give a
48-hour notice, the Jordanian
authorities opened the bridge
allowing hundreds of pilgrims to
cross at once to the Israeli side.
The Israelis were caught by
surprise. Dr. Moshe Sharon.
Aral) Affairs Adviser to the
Prime Minister, heard of the
returning pilgrims only ;it
midday and had to rush to
organize buses to transport them
to their home.
Likud and Labor Run
Neck-and-Neck in Poll
By YITZHAK SHARGIL
TEL AVIV (JTA) A
straw poll conducted among
Israelis who voted in the
municipal elections has created a
stir in Likud and Labor poltical
circles. The voters were asked
which party they would favor if a
Knesset election were to be held
now.
The first results showed Labor
and Likud running practically
neck-andneck. and the results
after adjustments for several
factors put Labor ahead.
THE POLL was commissioned
by Israel Television and con-
ducted by statistician Hanoch
Smith. The question now being
asked by politicians of all parties
is how reliable the results are.
The initial count gave Labor 44
seats in the new Knesset, a gain
of 11 and Likud, 46, a gain of one.
Critics contended that the poll
was inaccurate because of the low
turnout of voters in the municipal
elections only 50 percent of the
eligible voters cast ballots and
because kibbutz members were
excluded since yesterday's
elections were limited to
municipalities.
But Smith said these factors
were corrected by computer. The
new results showed Labor
leading Likud by 48-46 in the
hypothetical election. They also
predicted the elimination of such
splinter factions as Shulamit
Aloni's Civil Rights Movement
and the one-man Samuel Flatto-
Sharon faction.
The former Democratic
Movement for Change IDMC)
which has split into two small
factions also fared poorly in the
poll.
LIKUD POLITICIANS
generally scoffed at the results.
Nevertheless. Likud Minister
Moshe Nissim mentioned them to
Premier Menachem Begin when
he brief him on the municipal
election results by telephone.
Begin was reportedly not
impressed by the television poll
forecasts but agreed to convene
the party leadership when he
returns from Canada to consider
the possibility of calling early
elections. Avraham Sharir,
chairman of the Likud Knesset
faction, said he was certain of a
Likud victory in a general
election and that he would
recommend that the government
call one immediately after a peace
treaty is signed with Egypt to
get a fresh mandate.

Knesset Seems to Have Lost Prestige, Dignity
Continued from Page 4-A
.erne examples ot a problematic
Ituation concerning the com-
tosition of the Ninth Knesset,
lere are other more subtle
oblems which have a con-
able impact on the Knesset's
nctioning and image. The
ajor trouble is the lack of ex-
fience among most MKs in
,st of the parties. Some 50
Cs were elected for the first
^j and for some 30 others this
Conly their second term.
Even the Speaker. Yitzhak
Shamir, is a relative junior MK
with only one term four years
of previous parliamentary
experience. Thus, the most im-
portant post in the Knesset is
manned by a person who lacks a
rich parliamentary background
and therefore cannot be
recognized as an authoritative
parliamentarian.
The same inexperience prevails
among his deputies, who together
comprise the Knesset
"Presidium." None of them has
more than four years experience
in the Knesset. Some are actually
in their first year of service. The
deputy speakers are chosen
according to party key.
The lack of parliamentary
tradition is reflected in other
aspects of Knesset life: the whips
of the two main parties are
relative newcomers, as are the

leaders of the main caucuses. Due
to the political upheaval of the
elections and the establishment
of the Likud coalition govern-
ment, all the chairmen of the
Knesset's 10 committees are new.
NONE HAS previous ex-
perience in conducting a
parliamentary committee, and
many are serving in the Knesset
for the first time. The cumulative
consequences of these weak-
nesses is an inevitable decline in
Knesset procedures and
tradition, and a deterioration in
its prestige.
Israeli politicians will have to
consider whether such wholesale
infusions of "new blood" as took
place between the 8th and 9th
Knessets with parties
"rotating" up to one-half of their
previous Knesset members are
beneficial, in the long run, to the
working of the legislature.
A Leaf from Jewish Experience
lost both legs and an arm when
the bomb went off in a crowded
department store in central Paris
during the rush hour.
An anonymous phone caller
told an independent radio station
that the "Jewish Brigades" had
set off the bomb to protest
against the store's anti-Semitic
bias. Police were unable to trace
the call. They say they know of
no such clandestine organization
and believe the explosion is the
work of a psychotic.

MINNEAPOLIS On Nov.
29, 31 years after the United
Nations accepted the partition
plan for Palestine which led to
the creation of Israel, Israeli,
Egyptian and American students
held a special Rally for Peace on
the University of Minnesota
campus.
The rally was sponsored by the
Egyptian Student Organization,
the Israeli Student Organization,
the B'nai B'rith Hillel Foun-
dation, and the Minnesota
Chapter of the American
Professors for Peace in the
Middle East.
The rally was attended by 150-
200 people, among them 30
Arabs, mainly Egyptians. Both
Arab and Jewish speakers ex-
pressed hope for peace in the
Mideast. The rally concluded
with the dancing of the Egyptian
debka and the Israeli hora.
Continued from Page 4-A
obtaining from the NJCRAC's
Samuel Spiegler a sagacious
insider's summary of the
American Jewish community's
pragmatic and sensible handling
of vexing problems and stern
challenges facing Jews in the
United States from the time of
Hitler's rise to this moment of
the great thrust for Middle East
peace.
Spiegler's account is
historically significant. He has
been one of the social engineers,
laboring endlessly with laymen
and religious leaders in the
Jewish community to gain and
hold "an acceptance of the need
for the Jewish group to pursue its
objectives in the public domain."
So it has been that in the long,
bone-breaking battles for social
justice, for progressive legis-
lation in the fields of civil rights
and civil liberties, for solid
respect among America's
religious and non-religious
groups, this generation of Jews in
the United States learned how to
work together and ring up vic-
tories.
(In recent years, understand-
ably, the emphasis has been on
the Soviet Jewry struggle, on
Israel's needs, and on lasting
lessons drawn from the
Holocaust.)
HOW ALL this relates to the
work of the U.S. Justice
Department's Community Re-
lations Service was told im-
plicitly by Karen De Witt in the
New York Times shortly before
that newspaper became strike
bound. According to Karen De
Witt, the federal service referred
to was instrumental in deflecting
the American Nazis. There was
no brutish march in Skokie.
Instead, there was an inglorious
exhibit of Nazi boorishness,
spitting, and shouting in
Marquette Park on Chicago's
South Side.
It was the organized Jewish
community, as much as any
ethnic or racial grouping in
America, that cleared the way for
passage of the comprehensive
Civil Rights Act of 1964. The

munity Relations Service owes

Beth Shalom Groundbreaking Chinese Officials Warn Of
Temple Beth Shalom of
Hollywood announces the start of
construction to the Educational
complex with a groundbreaking
ceremony on Sunday, Dec. 31 at
10 a.m.
Allan Coplin is Building
Committee chairman, Dr. Morton
Malavsky, Rabbi of the
Synagogue and Dean of the Day
School; Leon Weissberg,
educational director; Mrs.
Shirley Cohen, early childhood
director; Temple president Dr.
Samuel Meline, and Board of
Education chairpersons Dr. Fred
Blumenthal and Ellie Katz.
The phenomenal growth of the
Beth Shalom School necessitated
the expansion program and will
include more than 15,000 square
feet of additional space as
follows:
The Jill Anne Coplin Memorial
Wing will house many modern
facilities. There will be a large
library which will house ap-
proximately 5,000 volumes with
an Audio Visual Center,
Librarian's Office, and special
audio visual space. This will be
known as the Meyer ho ff Library.
A laboratory for the sciences
known as the Katz Science Lab; a
large area which will house the
youth of all ages will be the
Shapiro Youth Center; and a
specially designed music room
will be the Dub in Music Room.
Sponsorship of class rooms is
available with one of the
classrooms reserved and known
as the Engleberg Class Room.
The contributions from the
above mentioned sponsors have
enabled the building expansion to
commence without additional
mortgages. The plans were drawn
by Samuel Garmizo; the general
contractor is John Luther; and
completion target is May of 1979.
This will enable the enrollment to
accept a minimum of 25 percent
more. At present, more than
1,000 children are enrolled.
Soviet Mideast Strategy
'Arts in Florida9 Set at Temple Beth El
After the conclusion of "Arts
in Florida '78," the art exhibition
and sale inaugurated last year at
Temple Beth El of Boca Raton,
Augusta Drill, chairman of the
Temple's Fine Arts Committee,
and those assisting her, began
preparing for "Arts in Florida
79." Encouraged by the large
attendance and great interest
which last year's show engen-
dered, "the committee members
have been working long and hard
to make the 1979 show even more
attractive and enjoyable," stated
Mrs. Drill.
The event will be ushered in
with a preview and reception for
sponsors and exhibiting artists,
with champagne and after-dinner
refreshments. This will give
sponsors an opportunity to meet
the artists. The opening reception
will take place on Saturday, Jan.
27 at 8 p.m. Sponsors will have a
chance to win the door prize of
$150 to be applied toward the

WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Chinese officials responsible for
shaping their country's foreign
policy continue to warn im-
portant American visitors that
the Soviet Union's strategy is
domination of the Middle East
and control of its oil resources,
according to impressions gained
by the latest Congressional group
returning from the People's
RepubUc of China.
Five Senators, who were inside
China for 12 days at the Chinese
government's invitation to
explore the country and meet its
leaders, did not directly ask their
hosts in Peking about their
feelings toward Israel. Instead,
they posed the question to two
high level authorities in seeking
what they could do to assist in
bringing peace to the Middle
East. In their responses, the
Chinese did not discuss Israel.
Williams Jr. (D.NJ), chairman of
the Senatorial group which
returned to the United States last
Tuesday, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that the
responses from these authorities
on the question focused on Soviet
maneuvers towards control in the
Middle East and in the Horn of
Africa. Their silence on Israel
was in accord with expressions
by other Chinese leaders in recent
weeks to subordinate the IsraeJ
Arab conflict to primary interest
on Soviet intentions.
At the People's Institute of
Foreign Affairs, the spokesman
said, Secretary General Hsieh Li
said, in a brief comment on the
Middle East, that China's in-
fluence is very limited in that
area but he stressed the Soviets
seek influence that would be
detrimental to the United States.
At the Great Hall of the
People, Vice Premier Ken Piao,
who was described as China's
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
and National Security Affairs
Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski
rolled into one, went into a longer
response that boiled down to the
same point the Soviet's desire
to control the Middle East oil and
prevent deliveries to nations
outside its influence.
The Senators besides Williams
were Howard Cannon (R.Nev.),
Henry Bellmon (R.Okla.), Dale
Bumpers (D.Ark.) and Donald
Riegel (D.Mich.). They were
appointed by President Carter to
make the visit after the Chinese
government had requested a
Senatorial delegation to tour
China.
Lori Fine, Diane Bogos, Alice Saagman and chairman Augusta
Drill meet in Mrs. DriWs art-filled home to plan for 'Arts in
Florida'79.'

the exhibition will be open to all
without charge from 10:30 am.
to.a pm. Lunch will be available
from 11:30 am. to 3 p.m.
Hostesses will be present to
assist viewers who wish details
about the exhibiting artists and
their works. Each of them will
have attended art seminars
arranged by Mrs. Drill, to be
given by her and other art
connoisseurs. Mrs. Drill is well
known by many in this area for
the informative art tours which
she has been conducting for
Brandeis University Women
during the past three years.
The exhibition again will be of
original works by national and
international artists and crafts-
men, and will include paintings,
sculpture, graphics, tapestries,
jewelry, ceramics and porcelain.
This year, the art selected will
have been judged by Dr. Arnold
L. Lehman of the Miami
Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Lehman has a number of degrees
including Master of Arts from
both Johns Hopkins and Yale
Universities, and a Ph.D. from
Yale. He was a Rhodes Scholar-
ship Nominee and ha* been guest
curator for museum exhibitions
in New York, Chicago, Dallas and
Oakland. Also he is a Board
member of the New York Fine
Arts Federation, among his
many cultural and community
appointments. Cash prizes will be
awarded for "Best of Show" and
Equal Merit," as well as ribbons
for "Honorable Mention."
Temple Beth El is located at
333 S.W. 4 Ave., in Boca Raton.
Reservations for the opening
night reception may be sent to
Mrs. Samuel Kupperman, 777

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The most revealing measure of
inflation in the new statistical
annual is its price 170 pounds.
Compared to last year's annual
which cost 95 pounds, this is an
increase of some 80 percent.
The new annual has some
details about world Jewry. At the
end of 1977, there were
14.260,000 Jews in the world, 21
percent of them (3,020,000) in
Israel.
WORLD JEWRY had not yet
reached its number on the eve of
World War II 16.7 million. At
the present growth rate, the
number of Je vs in the world will
reach the same level only at the
However, the new Annual
shows a decrease in the birth rate
in Israel. The number of new
births last year was 95,315, a
decrease of 3.5 percent compared
to the 98,763 born in 1976.
The rate of families with more
than seven persons decreased in
the last decade from 12 percent to
less than 10 percent. Most of the
decrease is noted with the Jewish
population, specifically among
Jews of Asian and African origin.
The difference in birth rate
between eastern and western
Jews was 21 percent last year
compared to a difference of some
100 percent in the '50s.
Temple Emanu-El in Fort Lauderdale, in conjunction with the
State of Israel Bonds Organization, paid tribute to Cantor
Jerome Element at an Israel Dinner of State. Cantor Klement
received the 90th Anniversary Award for his dedication and
devotion to the continuity of Jewish life and for his economic
support of the State of Israel. From left are Martin Yohalem,
Congregation president; General Meir Amit, the guest speaker;

BRUSSELS (JTA) -
Israel's concern over develop-
ments in the European Economic
Community (EEC) were ex-
pressed by Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan in meetings with
EEC foreign ministers here over
the weekend, prior to his talks
with Egyptian Premier
Mustapha Khalil and Secretary
of State Cyrus Vance.
Israel is worried about the
gending entry into the EEC of
pain, Portugal and Greece
which export many of the same
products that Israel sells. As full
members, they will enjoy the
same tariff benefits as Israel and
could offer stiff and possibly
unfair competition. Last year,
Israel's trade deficit with the
L.
EEC member states amounted to
$1 billion and it is feared that the
new competition would further
reduce Israel's exports.
Moreover, Spain and Greece do
not have full diplomatic relations
with Israel but would participate
in the formulation of EEC policy
on the Middle East.
Dayan met here with the
outgoing chairman of the EEC,
West German Foreign Minister
Hans Dietrich Genscher. He
promised Dayan that the EEC
authorities would meet with
Israeli experts to try to solve
these difficulties and that the
member-states would do "their
best" to convince Spain and
Greece to establish normal
diplomatic relations with Israel.

accepted into Moscow University
in 1977. Certainly doors have
been closed to Jews and opened
instead to Russian ethnics. The
mood is created: "the Jews are
traitors. And besides, they are
taking up valuable places needed
for our own."
And, at the same time, a
curious paradox: the emigration
statistics are rising, steadily but
not as fast as the numbers
requesting invitations from the
West. The Jews. too. have sensed
a mood: "Now is the time to stop
waiting, to get out. There is no
future for our children."
EARLIER THIS year, some
5,000 Jews each month requested
invitations from relatives in
Israel, the'necessary first step to
submitting a visa application.
After all, you must show that
there is someone in the West who
wants you.
In May, 1978, the requests
started skyrocketing and now
12,000 Soviet Jews ask for in-
vitations each month. From May
to October, 70,000 invitations
[vytors as they are called) were
dispatched from Israel, more
than all of last year.
The stampede on the "OVIR
offices reflects a wide
geographical spread. The news
seems to be rushing from larger
cities to the smaller ones. The
pressure to emigrate is building
so fast in some precincts, the
waiting line just to get to see
an emigration official is 300
cases long.
At present, some 3,500 Jews
are leaving the USSR each month
and the number is rising. But
what will happen to the > ast pool
of 12,000 eligible to apply each
month? How will the pressure be
relieved? Either the exit visas
must rise to match the ap-
plication rate or we will be seeing
vast numbers of new nfusenik
cases being created.
THE RISING numbers of
emigrants has brought with it
new difficulties. At the borders,
some must wait for eight to ten
days for custom officials to in
spect their belongings They
sleep on railway benches and in
leaking barns, rented at exor-
bitant prices. The process seems
deliberately humiliating.
The old Chinese curse. "May
you live in exciting times."
proves true time again and again.
While 40,000 Jews may be let out
in 1979, an unprecedented
number, new dangers await those
left behind.
Even at this rate, it would take
over 80 years for all ot Soviet
Jewry to be allowed to emigrate.
And well within those 80 years,
the danger is real that anti-
Semitic words will turn into anti-
Semitic action.
ADL Commends Bishop
For New Guidelines
NEW YORK IJTA) The
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith"' commended Bishop
Francis Jv Mugavero? of the
Brooklyn Diocese for issuing new
guidelines for Catholics with
regard to their relations with
Jews.
The guidelines on Jewish-
Catholic relations in the diocese
were launched by the Bishop in
ceremonies held in St. Andrew
Avellino Roman Catholic Church,
Flushing, Queens.
Billed as a "celebration of a
decade of Catholic-Jewish
dialogue." itwas sponsored by
the Catholic Jewish relations
council of Queens, the Catholic-
Jewish relations committee of the
diocese of Brooklyn and ADL's
New York Regional board.
HOWARD WEINSTEIN,
ADL's New York regional
director, said the new guidelines
contain a number of theologically
important statements reflecting
the Catholic outlook toward
Jews. The guidelines will be
distributed throughout the
diocese, which is considered a
national trendsetter in interfaith
dialogue, and implemented in
pastoral work, religious schools
and preachings.
Among the high points, the
new guidelines.
Spell out the various Jewish
sensitivities to which the church
must address itself, such as the
Holocaust and anti-Semitism and
the fact that Jews suffered
"martrydom at the hands of
some (persons) who styled
themselves las) Christians;"
Offer for the first time a
definitive statement that the
establishment of the State of
Israel represents to both Jews

and Christians "the fulfillment of
the divine promises set forth in
Take a -stand against
proselytizing, remind Catholics
(it the time when overly zealous
churchmen used to compel them
(Jews) to attend services in which
Judaism was belittled and
condemned":
Encourage Catholics, as well
as Jews, to learn about the
history, background and
development of each other's
religious community and the
exchange of views on a grass-
roots level."
"THE DIOCESE of Brooklyn
deserves much credit for the
major step forward it has again
taken in improving Catholic-
Jewish relations," Weinstein
said.
