Israel-Egypt Talks Postponed Again
From JT A Sources
JERUSALEM Israeli officials announced on July 7
ut Egypt had requested a delay in resuming the
lestinian autonomy talks. This prompted fears of
ewed hitches in the stalled negotiations.
It bad been decided the previous week in Washington
the talks would resume in Cairo. This developed
,en Israel's Interior Minister Yosef Burg met with
Egyptian Foreign Minister Kama! Hassan Ali and U.S.
'Special Ambassador SolLinowitz.
iat same day, the State Department's new
_esman, John Trattner, had said that Jerusalem is not
__ undivided city and that there is no free access to the
jly places there.
Burg said: "The U.S. position regarding Jerusalem is
not exactly what we would like to hear." He added that
this matter would not be discussed with Linowitz and Ali.
President Carter and Vice President Walter Mondale
have made statements that Jerusalem is an undivided
And in Jerusalem last week, a parliamentary committee
cleared the controversial "Jerusalem bill" that would
make the ancient city the "indivisible" capital of Israel.
The committee defeated an effort to stall the measure,
but it still is far from passage by the Knesset (Parliament).
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Menachem Begin is
recovering from a mild heart attack. President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt telephoned acting Premier Yigal Yadin to
inquire about Begin's health and expressed wishes for his
speedy recovery.
But in other Arab lands, the efforts to have more
pressure put on Israel continued.
Arabs Urge Oil Cuts
Syria and the Palestinian Liberation Organization
teamed up July 7 to demand that unless the United
States, Canada and Western Europe force Israel to give up
occupied Arab lands, Arabs should cut oil shipments to
the West by 25 percent, maybe a greater percentage.
Syria and the PLO told the 22-member Arab League of
nations that surround Israel that it should order oil
shipments cut step by step to make Israel get out of the
Arab territories it occupied not only in 1967 after the
Six-Day War, but also the land taken following the War of
Independence in 1948.
This was the strongest and most detailed proposal yet
for using oil as a diplomatic and negotiating weapon, a pet
project of the Syrian leaders in Damascus and the PLO.
The U.S.-mediated peace talks, which were to have
resumed in Cairo on July 10, were postponed because
Egypt said its minister of state for foreign affairs Butros
Ghali would be unavailable that day. However, no new
date was set for the resumption of the talks on the crucial
Palestinian autonomy, the scope of Israel's military
presence under the autonomous regime, and Israeli set-
tlements in the West Bank. (See related story concerning a
statement by a group of prominent American Jews taking
issue with the Israel government, on this page.
Growing Pattern of U.S. Abstentions at UN
The National Jewish Com-
I munity Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC) Commission
on Israel suggested to U.S.
Administration at the highest
levels that the U.S. veto the UN
Security Resolution 476 con-
demning Israeli "occupation" of
Jerusalem on the last day of
I June
Instead, once again, the U.S.
The Israel Task Force of
I NJCRAC. with which the Com-
I munity Relations Committee of
I the Jewish Federation of Greater
[Fort Lauderdale is affiliated,
notes that the U.S. traditionally
has endeavored not to cast its
veto, believing instead that its
restraints stand in sharp contrast
to the frequent, almost routine,
use of the veto by the Soviets. At
this juncture, however, when the
Soviet-Arab bloc continues to use
Israel as a diversion from the
Soviet invasion of Afghanistan
and as a wedge to undermine
U.S. diplomatic efforts, the Task
Force believes the U.S. ought to
act more vigorously in defense of
its own interests and friends,
including the use of the veto
when necessary.
Given the ever-increasing hos-
tility of the UN to the United
States and Camp David, Amer-
ican ambivalence (five absten-
tions, the vote for the resolution
on settlements and the vote
against Palestinian statehood
all since March 1) quite obviously
does not serve the Camp David
peace process or bolster Israel's
confidence or trust which is
requisite to the peace process.
Concretely, the accumulation of
adverse resolutions with clauses
that do not reflect U.S. policy,
builds a legislative history that
may further complicate positive
U.S. peace initiatives. Obviously,
a veto would have corresponded
more closely to the expressions of
U.S. intentions and positions as
expressed in U.S. Ambassador to
the UN Donald McHenry's state-
ment. Indeed that is the thrust of
McHenry's statement ac-
companying the abstention he
was directed to cast on behalf of
the United States.
Recognizing that there will be
a special session of the United
Nations General Assembly
beginning on July 22, and that
the Palestinian items at the
Copenhagen Mid-Decade Con-
ference on Women are scheduled
for July 24 and 25. the Task
Force believes it is important to
increase public awareness of the
negative role and disposition of
the United Nations to American
interests and foreign policy
initiatives particularly the
Camp David peace process.
NJCRAC, in its newly pub-
lished Joint Program Plan,
emphasizes Jerusalem's renais-
sance under Israeli sovereignty,
its protection of free access to
and the physical wellbeing of the
holy sites of the three mono-
theistic faiths, and the im-
portance of maintaining
Jerusalem's physical and
municipal integrity.
Begin Urges U.S. Jews Fight Arms to Saudis
^5 .... i-iillini' tor t
The week-long meeting of the
Zionist General Council, placid
and routine for the most part,
ended with an impassioned
appeal by Prime Minister
Menachem Begin to American
Jews to fight Carter
Administration plans to sell
advanced weaponry to Jordan
and Saudi Arabia and a bitter.
larring debate over Israel's
settlement policy in the West
Begin, who delivered the
closing address several days prior
to his most recent heart attack,
said Israel was deeply concerned
by Saudi Arabia's demand for
sophisticated equipment that
would enable its F-15 combat jets
to attack targets in Israel and
also by the American intentions
to provide Jordan with modern
M-60 tanks. There has been no
American decision so far on the
Saudi request which includes
extra fuel tanks to increase the F-
15s' operational range.
Begin warned that if the Saudi
planes are so equipped, they
could wreak havoc on Israel's
population in case of war. "We
would shoot down many of them,
but you can't down them all," he
said. With respect to Jordan, he
said that country was already
receiving British Chieftain tanks
and the addition of U.S. M-fiOs to
its armored force would pose
serious problems for Israel.
THE DEBATE on the set-
tlement issue indicated how
deeply the controversy runs. At
Jewish Agency Needs Cash Now
the end, both sides could claim a
partial victory. But Leon
Dulzin, chairman of the World
Zionist Organization and Jewish
Agency Executives, made it clear
that the debate was academic
because the WZO is committed to
build settlements wherever the
government tells it to regardless
of the sentiments expressed by
the General Council.
The debate developed into a
shouting match. Voices were
strident, and tempers were hot.
On one hand, the Likud coalition
delegates, headed by Mattityahu
Drobless, co-chairman of the
WZO's settlement department,
was forced to withdraw a motion
calling tor the WZO to
centrate on settlements in "areas
of sparse Jewish population,"
obviously a reference to the West
Bank and Gaza Strip. The Likud
forces realized the motion would
be defeated.
But Likud won a narrow
victory when a Labor Party
motion to give priority to set-
tlements in Israel proper
Galilee, the Negev and the Arava
district was narrowly
defeated, 60-54. The first vote, by
show of hands, was inconclusive
and each side demanded a roll-
call vote. By then, however, a
number of trie 170 delegates had
left the hall.
"The Jewish Agency in Israel will have to make
severe cuts in desperately needed social services for
the people of Israel unless more cash is made
available," declared Gladys Daren, co-chairman of
the Jewish Federation's Cash Committee.
Co-Chairman David Jackowitz said that United
Jewish Appeal reported the Agency has a cash
income shortage of 141 million at linst the operating
Jbudget of $405 million. An increase in the cash flow
from Federations, like the contributors to the 1980
UJA Campaign of the Jewish Federation of Greater
Fort Lauderdale, is the only solution to the shortfall.
Translated into simple terms, they said, "We're
glad you pleged, now you'll be glad you paid your
pledge" when you send your check to the
They issued a statement reporting the cash
campaign is necessary to get cash quickly, not only
for Israel, but to enable Federation to allocate
sufficient monies to meet the needs of our own
agencies in North Broward County.
They added: "Cash is the answer, not promises.
We ask that everyone clear up his obligation as soon
as possible. Then, and only then, wiU Federation in
turn be able to fulfill our responsibilities to Jews in
need in Israel and elsewhere."
Milton Keiner, president of the Jewish Federation
Greater Fort Lauderdale, who announced the
appointments of Mrs. Daren and Jackowitz as co-
chairmen of the Cash Committee, appointed these
additional members of the committee: Irving
Libowsky, Leonard Gluck, Dr. Erwin Michaelson
and Sol Furman.
Prayer in Schools
Despite the efforts of many people to have Gov.
Graham veto the prayer-in-public schools bill, he
signed the bill passed on the final day of the State
legislature's session.
The law will now allow school districts to
authorize two minutes each week of "silent prayer
and meditation" in the schools.
The bill, as revised in the Senate after it was
pushed through the House by Fort Lauderdale s
Rep. Tom Bush, is only a shadow of the school
prayer measure that was originally considered by
the Legislature. To comply with U.S. Supreme Court
mandates, It was watered-down to give chool
boards authority to set aside brief periods (two
minutes) for voluntary meditation and prayer.
'Utterly Inexcusable'
NEW YORK (JTA) Howard Squadron, who
assumed office on July 2 as chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major American Jewish
Organizations, sharply criticized the statement
released in Jerusalem on July 1, presumably signed
by 50-some prominent American Jews, which took
issue with policies of Prime Minister Begin's
He said: "I find it regrettable that American
Jewish leaders should engage in this kind of public
debate it's always unhelpful and divisive ... In
fact, the Jewish community is united on the most
important issues:
"First, that Jerusalem shall remain undivided and
the capital of Israel, with free access to all faiths.
Second, that the Camp David accords represent a
great achievement for peace Third, that Israel is
a functioning democracy and that is government
will rise or fall on the basis of the wishes of the
people of Israel."
Theodore Mann and Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
past chairmen of the Conference of Presidents,
whose names were signed to the statement, and
several others disclaimed the remarks made against
Begin. Mann and Schindler, in a statement, said:
"The insults to the Prime Minister expressed by
Leonard Fein are utterly inexcusable We're
against extremism and violence from whatever
source ... We deeply resent the effort of Fein to
associate us with any view that regard Begin or his
policies as 'extremist."

JDC Opens New Israel Headquarters in Jerusalem
The Joint Distribution Com-
mittee (JDC) formally opened its
new Israel headquarters here last
month. It was described by
Ralph I. Goldman, executive vice
president of the world-wide social
service organization as "a
positive statement for us of the
centrality of Jerusalem to the
Jewish people."
JDC president Donald M.
Robinson referred to the new
headquarters complex, on what is
now being known as "JDC Hill,"
as "visible evidence of the bonds

dignitaries to the inaugural
cererJponies. was unable to attend
because of pressing political
matters. He sent his wife, Aliza.
as his personal representative.
His message, prepared for the
occasion, was read by Welfare
Minister Israel Katz.
In it, the Prime Minister
recalled the JDC's work in pre-
war Europe, which he had known
"at first hand." He noted that he
follows closely the JDC's work in
Israel "especially with the aged
and handicapped and with
community centers.''
The Prime Minister's message
also mentioned the JDC's rote
in the post-war "bricha" the
effort to move Jewish con-
centration camp survivors
through war-ravaged Europe to
Palestine before the State of
I srael was founded.
Katz also thanked the JDC for
its efforts in Israel, speaking on
his own behalf and for the
government. After the inaugural
ceremonies, president Yitzhak
Navon and his wife, Ophira,
hosted the guests at a festive
reception. Mrs. Navon noted that
as a child psychologist by
profession she had worked for
many years in JDC projects.
In addition to Katz, the
government was represented by
Health Minister Eliezer
Shostack. Jack Weiler, chairman
of the JDC board and a veteran
American Jewish leader, atlixed a
mezuzah to the door of the
headquarters building, flanked
by Sephardic Chief Rabbi Ovadia
Yosef and Aharon Greenbaum.

letter read in part:
"1 am overwhelmed with
the expression of support on
my sister Ida Nudel's behalf,
which your special order on
April 29th has triggered on
the part of the U.S.
Congress. I have carefully
read the Congressional
Record of that date and feel
that we are not alone in our
struggle. I am sure that this
outpouring of the leaders of

direct result of your personal

of your immediate un-

Women's Conference
The upcoming women's conference in
Copenhagen will emphasize the Johnny-One-Note
tune whistled by the Arab phalanx of this planet
Earth and the way in which the world dances in
At a time that women in Iran are taking their
lives in their hands by protesting against the
medieval modes of "female behavior" which the
Ayatollah Khomeini is attempting to reimpose on
them; when the Republican Party found it hard in
Detroit this week to come to a consensus about the
Equal Rights Amendment; when women everywhere
in lands that are both advanced and only now
developing are still victimized by various levels
of discrimination, at such a time it is difficult to
envision that the Copenhagen conference will be
subjected to another war over attacks on Israel as
We say "another" because that is what hap-
pened in Mexico City to begin with in the infamous
Zionism equals racism resolution years ago and
what happened only last week in Geneva at a
meeting of the International Labor Organization,
where the Arab phalanx sang their one-note
symphony most recently.
Copenhagen No Surprise
Still, we should not be surprised. It is not only
women's problems that are put at the bottom of the
list of priorities in a conference designed to study
these problems. At the United Nations every day,
where world problems involving poverty, disease,
illiteracy, technological deficiency and military
aggression in a variety of hotspots ought to be top
priority, does not the UN agenda feature as vir-
tually a principal subject of its debate Israel, Israel,
We say we should not be surprised if only
because, in the order of Arab affairs women's rights
would surely come last. And because a free society,
such as Israel's, is an absolute threat to its
medieval condition.
56 American Jews
We applaud the statement by Howard
Squadron, new chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations, who this
week deplored the statement signed by 56 American
Jewish intellectuals concerning the policies of the
Menachem Begin government.
The intellectuals set their sights on Begins
tough attitude toward the West Bank and Gaza and
his firm insistence that yet another separate
Palestinian state must not be permitted to emerge
ui the Middle East, to be more precise, right on
Israels borders.
What the intellectuals want is more concessions
to be wrung out of Israel in the name of peace. This
at a time when it has become absolutely crystal
clear that Begin's own enthusiastic withdrawal from
the Sinai in the name of peace with Egypt has thus
far brought only Israel's withdrawal not full
diplomatic reciprocity between the two countries,
not an enthusiastic intellectual and cultural ex-
change, not a new citizen-to-citizen relationship
except insofar as Israelis have attempted to in-
stitute these things on a one-way street.
Principally, it has not really brought peace,
only more and more Anwar Sadat demands for more
and more Israeli concessions. This is bitter enough
fruit of the Camp David accords. The 56 American
Jewish intellectuals were not really needed by Sadat
to press his advantage.
Squadron's deploring of their statement makes
this crystal clear.

neanderthal creatures living out
their extinction among us in a
quiet despair for the extinction
with them of the logical and
meticulous use of language, call it
ad hominem. It has to do with a
kind of argument addressed to
the man.
In ad hominem argument, you
go for the jugular. You ignore
issues and address your attack to
the man himself his sex life,
his drinking habits, his business
practices, his religious affiliation,
his race, whatever is convenient
as a first fistful of mud.
IN THIS kind of debate, the
implication is that a scoundrel
can not possibly be on the right
side of any issue, and so why
bother discussing any issue with
him at all? The logical fallacy
here is obvious, and in practical
terms ad hominem is
For ad hominem comes from
ignorance, bigotry and prejudice;
and it appeals to ignorance,
bigotry and prejudice. Worse,
character assassination, for that
is what ad hominem amounts to
in the end. depends upon the
assassin's artistic capacity to
delineate and embellish flaws of
personality in his opponent, or
even to make new ones where
none existed in the first place. It
is the character assassin who
creates the scoundrel in order to
unmask him. It is a process that
appeals to the worst in us at the
worst of times.
In essence, the person willing
to descend into the vile morass of
ad hominem is more than an
ignorant bigot, more than intel-
lectually dishonest. He is an out-
and-out Liar.
ALL THESE things must be
understood in order to appreciate
the enormity of the Democratic
Party's announced campaign
tactic against Ronald Reagan in
the upcoming presidential race as
conceived by Chairman Robert
Strauss: that Reagan is not of
the stuff of which presidents are
made that Reagan is "better
equipped to be a cowboy movie
It is not ad hominem to inquire
why a movie cowboy is more
poorly-equipped to be president
than, say. a peanut farmer. The
history of the American
presidency represents many pro-
fessions and occupations ranging
from military leaders (Jackson.
Eisenhower) to engineers
(Hoover, Carter), from lawyers
(Lincoln, Nixon) to university
presidents (Wilson), from archi-
tects and philosophers (Jefferson,
who was also a university
president) to clever real estate
agents (Washington, who was
also a military leader).
To question the admissibility
of a movie cowboy into this
populist panoply of presidential
personalities is not only to be an
elitist; it is to be a snob. Both, as
attitudes, establish dangerous
precedents with respect to pre-
requisites for the office, which the
Constitution spells out in a far
more reasonable and democratic
way except for the stipulation
that candidates must be native-
born, a condition that has long
since outlived its usefulness.

Number 15
Late in June and early in July,
when the 37-member United
States Delegation to the World
Conference of the UN Decade For
Women, 1980, was going through
final briefings, obvious efforts
were being exerted to pen up the
snake let loose in 1975 in Mexico
The reptile, the creation of an
Arab-Soviet-Third World
wrecking crew, was adoption of a
statement equating Zionism with
racism. Those who really know
the meaning of racism and the
meaning of Zionism found, and
continue to find, such a
pronouncement obnoxious,
abhorrent, and downright nasty.
IN THE five intervening
years, warning flags have gone
op to prevent a repetition of such
damaging nonsense. Nowhere is
that more apparent than in the
warm-up sessions for the
women's Conference scheduled
for July 14 to 30 in Copenhagen.
A document prepared by the
Economic Commission for
Western Asia a section of the
UN Economic and Social Council
- declared that three topics
must have priority at the
Copenhagen meeting: 1-
Apartheid; 2- Palestinian
women; 3- refugees.
Sarah Waddington, assistant
to President Carter for political
liaison and women's concerns
and co-leader of the U.s!
delegation bound for
Copenhagen, has condemned the
document just mentioned (a
paper prepared with the help of
the Palestine Liberation
.11*?.!? **&*#** has assured
11 interested that the American
delegation will work with other
conference goers to oppose the
now Copenhagen statement,
reminiscent of the Mexico Citv
Other American delegates who
can be expected to share Mrs.
Waddington's watchman-at-the
gate stance include Lynda
Johnson Robb. Judy Carter
Dorothy Height (president of the
National Council of Negro
Women)/ and Esther R. Unda
(past president of the National
Council of Jewish Women).
THESE FOLKS want to get
on with what should be the main
business of the Copenhagen
sessions. They will be demanding
discussions and action on health,
jobs, education and related issues
transcending in importance
dozens of other concerns.
However, if the PLO-inspired
delegates overpower the con-
vention and insist on eating up
the conference time by pressing
for a Zionism-is-Racism political
campaign, the Americans will be
prepared. They will demand
discussion in depth of the plight
of South African blacks living in
a traditional climate of apar- -
theid; they will join the fight to
end bloodshed in that area. They
are determined to block anti-
Israel political attempts to make
the plight of Palestinian women a
separate agenda item.
What a travesty that world
opinion has not reached that
desirable point at which the
politicalization of international
forums can be made to stop short
of the insatiable determination to
gang up on Israel, Zionism, and
IN 1975, it was pointed out
that those who try to drag
American delegates into the
scheme to make racism and
Zionism synonymous is tan-
tamount to declaring the United
States in favor of anti-Semitism.
It was clearly shown that the
end-goal of the Arab plotters was
not to smash racism but to try to
expel Israel from the United
And along the way, American
spokesmen asked the world to
take note that the United States
pays a disproportionate part of
the heavy cost of maintaining the
UN and its multi-faceted com-
missions. Women who back the
PLO move at Copenhagen may
wish to weigh carefully the
significance of this factor.

Sen. Stone Interviewed Conference to be Tool for PLO
Wolf Blitzer, noted
Washington newspaperman, last
month had an hour-long in-
terview with Florida's Sen.
Richard (Dick) Stone in the
Senator's office. He reported on
the interview in the Baltimore
Jewish Times. Excerpts are
1 printed here.
Israel has no better friend in
the U.S. Congress than Sen.
Stone. As chairman of the
Foreign Relations Subcommittee
on the Middle East, he has
repeatedly come to Israel's
defense since entering the Senate
five and half years ago. He has
been most helpful in making
certain that U.S. economic and
- military assistance to Israel is
passed without cuts. At times, he
has successfully introduced
measures improving the terms of
U.S. loans to Israel most
recently last month.
Although a Democrat. Stone
has not hesitated from criticizing
President Jimmy Carter and his
Administration for taking
positions toward Israel and the
Middle East which the Florida
senator considered unwise. On
other occasions, he has praised
In short, when it comes to
Israel, Stone's credentials are im-
peccable. His support stems from
his firm conviction that Israel
represents "the strongest strate-
gic asset to American policy in
, the Middle East."
Stone, one of seven Jews in the
Senate, said Israel is "the one
tough nut" which the Soviet
Union is trying to crack. "Israel
stands between Soviet
domination of the Middle East
and no domination," he said. "If
it were not for Israel, the Soviets

Senator Richard Stone
Stone, currently in the midst of
a tough battle for re-election in
Florida, may have been critical of
Israels settlement policies, but
he spared no words in rebuking
the Carter Administration's
refusal to support Israel in the
United Nations. What angered
him was Washington's recent
series of abstentions on
resolutions condemning Israel.
Stone said he was still pushing
hard to have the U.S. take over
Israel's Etzion and Ophira
airbases in the Sinai following the
scheduled withdrawal in 1982. So
far, Egypt has rejected U.S.
overtures regarding such an
American take-over. Stone said,
citing Egypt's sensitivity to
Arab criticism. He believes that
Egypt may have a change of
heart, and he predicted that
Israel and China will continue to
improve relations in the months
Editor's Note: The following
article was originally published in
the Philadelphia Bulletin. Mrs.
Wilen is co-president of the
national women's division of the
American Jewish Congress.
The United Nations is once
again being used as a
springboard for vicious and
senseless attacks against the
Jewish people and the State of
Israel. This time, however, the
victims of UN diatribes will not
be just Israel or Jews but a
far greater and more significant
group: the women of the world.
The story goes back to 1975
when the UN began a Decade for
Women with an international
conference in Mexico City. At
that time, delegates passed a
resolution equating Zionism with
apartheid. Later that year, the
UN General Assembly, un-
doubtedly encouraged by what
had happened in Mexico City,
passed its infamous Zionism is
racism" resolution.'
Now. five years later, a Mid-
Decade Conference for Women is
being planned for Copenhagen,
Uenmark, from July 14-30. with
the avowed aim of working for
the alleviation of problems faced
by women in the areas of health,
education and employment.
Several workshops were held
recently in Philadelphia in
preparation for the Copenhagen
conference. The discussions
covered such weighty subjects as
women in education and in the
developing world; women's legal
rights, employment op-
portunities, etc.
Enter the PLO
While most delegates to the
conference undoubtedly expect to
deal with these matters, some of
the planners would rather use it
as a forum for virulent anti-Israel
rhetoric. Thus, as part of the
documentation developed for the
conference. the Economic
Commission for Western Asia
(ECWA). a section of the UN
Economic and Social Council
which includes the PLO and from
which Israel was arbitrarily
excluded, has produced a 66-page
document entitled "Social and
Economic Conditions of
Palestinian Women Inside and
Outside the Occupied
The document is full of
fallacies and distortions. It
refrains from calling Israel
anything but the Zionist en-
tity," thus reinforcing the tact
that the PLO 8 true objective is
to replace Israel with a
Palestinian state. It indicates
that .lews were settlers from
abroad but no mention is made of
the considerable Jewish presence
in Israel for generations.
It mentions the "humanitarian
nature of the Palestinian
struggle" with no mention of
terrorism and the killing of in-
nocent women and children bv
the 1'LO.
The document's purpose
becomes clear when one realizes
that very little of it actually deals
with women, even Palestinian
women, and when it does, it
argues that the Palestinian
struggle has relegated women to
a low priority. The document

Right to Collect Signatures at Mall Upheld
The American Jewish
Congress has hailed as a "major
victory for civil liberties" a
unanimous decision by the U.S.
Supreme Court upholding the
right of Hebrew Sunday School
students to collect signatures at a
California shopping center
Stack Named to Task force
On Small Businesses
Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill has
appointed Rep. Edward J- Stack
ID-Fort Lauderdale), to a newly
created House Task Force on
Small Business Programs.
The Task Force will develop
legislative priorities for action by
the Congress this fall and in the
coming year.
Congress last week gave final
approval to the Omnibus Small
Business Bill of 1980, the most
comprehensive legislation af-
fecting small business ever
passed. It provides more than
$30 billion in loan and guarantee
authority and a major shift in
emphasis toward helping small
business have a better chance to
compete with big government
and big business.
Yet, Rep. Stack suggested
there are many additional areas
of concern to small business that
need immediate attention.
"We will look closely at im-
plementing the recent recom-
mendations of the White House
Conference on Small Business as
well as at other proposals
developed by the small business
community. I am especially
concerned about productivity,
capital formation, unfair com-
petition, regulatory reform,
paperwork reduction and
protection from unfair trade
practices," Rep. Stack said.
The Task Force will hold
hearings as appropriate to
determine which recom-
mendations will receive the
highest priority.
The group is chaired by Rep.
Neal Smith (D-Iowa), chairman
of the House Small Business
Committee. House Majority
Leader Jim Wright, House Ways
and Means Committee Chairman
Al Ullman, and Rep. Geraldine
Ferraro, will serve as vice
protesting the United Nations
anti-Zionist resolution.
The AJCongress had filed a
friend-of-the-court brief in
support of the public's right to
circulate petitions or otherwise
peacefully exercise their rights of
free speech in privately owned
shopping centers.
The case, Pruneya.'d Shopping
Center v. Robins, arose in San
Jose, Calif., over a dispute be-
tween the shopping center's own-
er and Jewish students at San
Jose's Temple Emanu-El who, as
part of a class project, sought to
collect signatures for a petition
opposing the UN resolution
condemning Zionism as a form of
After being ejected by the
shopping center's security
personnel, the students brought
suit in state court to establish
their right to petition. The
Supreme Court of California
decided in their favor,
Pruneyard'8 owner then appealed
to the United States Supreme
Court, claiming that the
California court's ruling infringed
on property rights protected by
the United States Constitution.
The American Jewish
Congress, on behalf of itself and
the Synagogue Council of
America, filed a friend-of-the-
court brief in the U.S. Supreme
Court defending the student's
right to petition.
'Shopping Center is a
Modern Day Pubic Forum'
Commenting on the decision.
Prof. Abraham S. Goldstein of
Yale Law School, chairman of
AJCongress' Commission on
Law and Social Action, declared:
"A shopping center in con-
temporary California is the
modern equivalent of the Greek
agora. We are gratified that the
Supreme Court has ruled that
First Amendment guarantees
must be afforded at these modern

Prof. Goldstein continued:
"No shoppers were deterred from
shopping at Pruneyard as a
result of the students' activities.
No tenants complained. AU that
Pruneyard's owner had lost was
the power to act as a feudal lord
and to control what might be said
on the property he had opened to

reasonably held is not incidental

century shopping center."

Israel Study Tour
Michelle Hauser, daughter of
Mr: and Mrs. Joel Hauser of
Coral Springs, is in Israel for a
four-week study tour. "Back to
the Source,-' sponsored for teen-
agers by the Central Agency for
Jewish Education (CAJE) for
students of Broward County and
the Miami area.
Michelle, the only one from
North Broward in the contingent
of 17 students, has been provided

originated through a grant from
-the South Broward Jewish
Federation, is directed by Dr.
Diane Reisman, CAJE
educational consultant for South
Broward, and Sam Alpert. CAJE

All of the 17 students who will
be participating in the study
tour, were required to attend a
series of six orientation seminars,
dealing with the cultural,
historical, economic, political,
religious and geographical
aspects of contemporary Israeli
life. On the tour itself there will
be ongoing study sessions in
addition to the touring of the
major sites of interest.
Among the places that the
group will visit are Jerusalem, at

. conclusion of the tour; a field
school at Ein Gedi, which is a
fruitful area of springs and
waterfalls bordering almost
directly on the barren shores of
the Dead Sea. Tiberias. Haifa.
Tel Aviv. Safed and Eilat.
Highlights of the touring will
include the sacred sites of
Jerusalem; memorials associated
with the Holocaust Yad
Vashem and the Cellar of
Destruction in Jerusalem, and
Kibbutz Lohamei Hagetaot,
which was established by the
survivors of the ghettos of
Eastern Europe; the Museum of
the Diaspora in Tel-Aviv, which
has gained worldwide acclaim;
the artists' colony and the acient
synagogues in Safed; and the
varied sites, both old and new
through the land.
Through a special arrangement
with Miami Dade Community
College, the tour participants will
receive three college credits for
their study both prior to the tour
and during their stay in Israel.
4'onducting part of the orien-
tation program in addition to Dr.

South Broward for the past four
years and is originally from
Philadelphia, where she headed
the Akiva Academy, one of the
outstanding day high schools in
the country.
Sam Alpert, the co-leader of
the lour, is now completing his
three year stint as Shliach,
having made a major impact on
the community in terms of Israeli
programming in Jewish schools
on an adult level and in public,
private and parochial schools, as

President Anwar Sadat of Egypt
telephoned acting Prime Minister
Yigael Yadin to inquire about
Prime Minister Menachem
Begins health and expressed
wishes for his speedy recovery on
behalf of himself and his wife,
Jihan. Begin was reported to be
recuperating satisfactorily and
onf of intensive care.
His physician. Dr. Mervyn
Gottesman, said that Begin will
have to remain in the hospital
and should make a "full
recovery" from his "light heart
attack. He said that when Begin
returned to work he would be able
to "fulfill his task properly ... to
work at the same pace as he has
been working until now."
MEANWHILE. political
observers here said that if Begin
continues to make a slow but
toady recovery, as predicted by
his doctor, his illness will have
proved to be a boon to his shaky
Likud-led coalition government.
Although the government
easily defeated a motion for early
elections in the Knesset, there
have been rumblings of
discontent in coalition ranks and
numerous waverers. But his
illness is likely to solidify support
behind the Prime Minister, at
least for the time being, the
observers said.
On the other hand, there is no
guarantee that these initial
reactions will prevail during the
coming crucial months, and much
will depend on the state of

will inevitably search for political
alternates, the observers said.
already brewing in the Cabinet.
The various coalition factions are
disturbed by Begins almost
automatic designation of Yadin
as acting Prime Minister and
acting Defense Minister while he
is incapacitated. The Liberal
Party is particularly resentful
that Begin did not ask their man,
Deputy Prime Minister Simcha
Ehrlich, to assume st least one of
those posts.
Although Yadin has served as
acting Prime Minister in the
past, on occasions when Begin
was either ill or abroad, his
political base was stronger.

Ludwik and PolaBrodzki Visit Native'Shetls'in Poland
Re-tracing steps they had
taken in their youthful, happier
days, Pola and Ludwik Brodzki
visited their native cities in Po-
land. They returned last month
to Fort Lauderdale with new
memories, new insights, and new
information on the plight of Jews
still living in Poland.
Among the more pleasant
aspects was the opportunity to
attend performances at one of the
two remaining Yiddish repertory
theatres in Europe. Ludwik
Brodzki, who was the first
president of the Jewish Fed-
eration of Greater Fort Lauder-
dale, with many other "firsts"
to his credit, said the theatres are
Warsaw's Government Jewish
Theatre named in honor of the
actress mother of the equally-
talented late great actress, Ida
Kaminska, and one in Romania.
At the theatre, where the
audience gets receivers for in-
stantaneous translation into
Polish (much like the UN
system), Ludwik, by good
chance, was able to buy the few
remaining outstanding billboard
posters of other days. The set,
even more colorful and elaborate
than the portion of the 22-by-33-
inch Centennial poster
reproduced here, has been
donated to the library of the
Jewish Community Center of
Greater Fort Lauderdale,
Perlman Campus, 6501 W.
Sunrise Blvd. Oddly, the actors
are mostly Poles who are taught
Yiddish. Three Jewish actors, up
in years, died in the last year.
During a visit with the
secretary of the Union of Jewish
Religious Congregations in
Poland, he learned that there are
synagogues in only 18 cities, with
10 of them in what's known as
"the new territory," land that
was taken from the Germans as a
result of World War II. In the
"old area," where 3,500,000 Jews
lived before the Holocaust,
synagogues still exist in Warsaw,
- Cracow, Lodz, Katowice,
Czestochowa, Bielsko-Biala,
Sosnowiec, Tarnow, Lublin. In
some of the synagogues, there is
Ludwik Brodtki
a rabbi serving the small
Only about 3,000 of the some
8,000 to 10,000 Jews in Poland,
Ludwik said, "are affiliated with
a synagogue. Very few young
people attend services, very few
of the elderly attend, except for
the High Holy Days."
He learned, he said, that
"interestingly enough, the Polish
government is pushing
restoration of what was the
second largest synagogue, Nozyk
in Warsaw, so that services can
be held there in September,
although the rededication won't
take place until sometime next
The largest synagogue
in Poland was the Tlomacki. This
was totally destroyed in Warsaw.
In the restoration of Nozyk, the
Aron Kodesh (Ark), pews and
other materials salvaged from the
ruins of other synagogues in the
country have been used.
The government, Brodzki said,
is also rebuilding the brick wall
around the largest Jewish

she was 14, is buried. Pola

At the Jewish Historical
Society of Poland, its small
museum has its walls covered
with greatly-enlarged
photographs of the Holocaust,
including pictures of Jews in
various ghettos, besides the great
Warsaw Ghetto fight, battling

warpower. Here Ludwik Brodzki
was informed is a directory of

Expanded Program Planned for Judaica High School
A comprehensive four-year
curriculum leading to graduation,
an expanded program with
additional courses, more special
events, increased opportunities
for social activities, and ad-
ditional college credit courses are

Phyllis Chudnow, educational

On* of the additional in
novative programs now being
reviewed as the inclusion in each
year of the program of a trip first
to the Jewish institutions of the
local community, than on a
regional bash of southern Jewry,
neat to the New York area and its
many Jewish organizationa,
institutions snd places of wor-
ship, and finally culminating in
an eleventh grade trip to Israel.
The Jewish Federation has in-
dicated its support of the concept
of an Israel trip for Judaica High
students by making available
scholarship funds for Israel study
In addition to the "specials"
that will be part of the on-going
program of the JHS. such as
guest speakers both from the
local community and from Israel,
visits from Israeli teen-agers, and
others, plans are in the works for
a number of activities with JHS
students from Hollywood and
Dade. For the first time, North
Broward students will participate
in the Akiva Leadership Training
Fellowship of the JHS which
meets every Sunday afternoon
and which is designed to develop
future leaders with a broad
knowledge of Jewish sources and
the American Jewish community,
together with leadership skills
and a desire to serve the Jewish
Another feature of the JHS is
the involvement of the rabbis of
the participating synagogues on
the faculty of the high school.
This provides the school with an
enhanced curriculum and staff.
In addition to the ongoing
schedule of the JHS. which will
be held on Tuesday evenings at
the Jewish Community Center
Perlman Campus, an enriched,
intensified program for those
students who hsve the
background and are motivated to
continue their studies in Hebrew,
will be offered during another
night of the week. These classes
will be limited in number and will
build on the Hebrew knowledge
gained in the elementary school
programs to continue the study
of the basic sources of Jewish life
in their Hebrew original
Still another element that will
be added to the program in the
coming year will be future-
teacher training classes for those
students interested in serving as
Sunday School teacher aides and
after graduation from high school
as full-fledged teachers.
Perhaps the importance of the
JHS can best be noted by the
words of Michael Weinberg,
incoming Education Committee
chairman, who summed it up by
saying, ".Jewish education for our
teen-agers is of crucial im-
portance, for it is at that age that
they begin to formulate their
value system that motivates
them for a lifetime. We hope that
every Jewish teen-ager in the
community takes advantage of
the JHS program."

From Destuction and Tragedy to Hope of Redemption
Education Director
Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale
Perhaps more than any other
aspect of Judaism, the Jewish
calendar reflects the striving of
the Jew to re-enact in his own life
the peak historical experiences of
his people.
The F.xodus from Egypt, for
example is the prime model of the
Providence of God, and the
promise of redemption for all
mankind. The Exodus from
slavery to freedom is the common
thread that is interwoven among
the holidays of Pesach, Shavuot,
Sukkot and even the Shabbat. At
the Seder, in the Sukkah, around
the Shabbat table, we re-enact
and relive that event so as to
internalize it and live by the his-
torical experience which it ex-
Yet there are tragic times in
our history as well and to ignore
them would be false to the sweep
of Jewish history and to the
lessons that can be derived from
it. Tisha B'Av, the ninth day of
the Hebrew month of Av, which
falls this year on Tuesday, July
22, is the paradigm of defeat and
destruction, of sadness and
mourning, and yet of future
redemption as well.
Tisha B'Av commemorates the
major tragedies of Jewish history
the destruction of the First
Temple in 586 BCE by the Baby-
lonians, and of the Second
Temple by the Romans more
than 500 years later in 70 CE.
Tradition assigns to Tisha B'Av
that day on which the generation
of Israelites which had left Egypt
were decreed to die in the Sinai
desert, while a new generation of
free men would enter the
Promised Land.
Tisha B'Av marks as well the
fall of the fortress of Beitar to the
Romans in the year 135 CE, sym-
bolizing the crushing of the revolt
of Bar Kochba against Roman
dominance. A year later, it was to
mark the plowing up of the
Temple Mount by the Romans
and the establishment of a
Roman temple on that site.
Nor was tragedy to cease in the
centuries that followed. The
prayers of mourning said on
Tisha B'Av, the kinot. refer to
the buring of 24 cartloads of the
Talmud in Paris in 1242 and the
destruction of scores of com-
munities during the Crusades.
Tradition dates the expulsion of
the Jewish community of Spain,
in 1492, after centuries of a
"Golden Age" of Jewish life and
culture in that land, to the day of
Tisha B'Av.
Traditional Jewish law and
custom concretize the feelings of
Israelis Serve Youth in
Jewish Communal Camps
NEW YORK Youngsters in
47 American Jewish communal
day and resident camps will
experience a bit of Israel through
almost 125 Israeli shlichim
(communal professionals), who
have been assigned to these
camps for the 1980 summer
season. The camps are sponsored
by Jewish Community Centers,
Jewish Federations and other
Jewish communal institutions.
The Summer Camp Shlichim
Program, now in its 14th year, is
jointly sponsored by Jewish
Welfare Board (JWB), the Youth
and Hechalutz Department of the
World Zionist Organization in
Israel, and the American Zionist
Youth Foundation.
Says Leonard Rubin, director
of JWB's Camping Services,
"Using shlichim in camps
strengthens the ties between the
U.S. and Israel, enhances
cultural and religious programs,
and introduces American Jewish
youth to Israel and its people."
The Israelis serve the summer
camps in a number of ways as
general counselors, and
specialists in the fields of music,
dance, drama, crafts, pioneering,
nature, and Jewish cultural
programs. They come as cultural
exchange students.
Rubin went to Jerusalem
where he interviewed some 200
shlichim candidates. Previously,
Avinoam Caspi of the Youth and
Hechalutz Department, WZO,
had screened over 2,000 initial
applicants for camp shlichim
positions. Ruth Kastner is the

"This is one of the finest group
of camp shlichim we have ever
had," Caspi said. "They are
young, many of them just out of
the Israeli Army, and they are
very talented."
Rubin said that five of the
shlichim had served in camps

B'Av. the three-week period is
marked by the avoidance of
joyous occasions (such as wed-
dings) and of those acts which
would require the she'Hechiyanu
blessing over something new and
The prophetic portions read in
the synagogue speak of moral
degradation, and the punishment
that must inevitably follow. In
the nine days immediately pre-
ceding the fast day, it is cus-
tomary to avoid meat and wine.
Indeed, the very last meal on the
afternoon of Tisha B'Av is one of
austerity and deprivation.
On the eve of Tisha B'Av, the
curtain of the Ark is removed, as
if the very countenance of God
were veiled and hidden and the
universe empty of His presence.
The synagogue is usually in semi-
darkness, lit only by candles,
while the book of Lamentations
recounting the destruction by the
Babylonians is chanted in dirge-
like fashion by the worshippers
seated on low benches or the floor
itself. Fasting and mourning, we
re-experience the tragedy of our
people, and re-live it as if it were
happening to ourselves.
At the morning service, the
worshippers do not don the tallit
or tefillin. which are considered
as ornaments of pride, beauty
and glory. The Book of Lamen-
tations is read once aeain. and
moving elegies are chanted. The
Torah portions deal with despair
and exile.
As the day wanes, the elements
of hope and redemption begin to
emerge. The tallit and tefillin are
worn at the afternoon service,
prayers of comfort are said, and
as the fast day ends with the
evening service, the prayer of
sanctification of the new moon is
recited, which in mystical Jewish
literature, reflects the hope for
the coming of the Messiah and
the belief that all of nature and
history will be restored to whole-
ness and perfection.
In some synagogues the long-
ing for redemption is linked with
the renewed ties with the land of
Israel through contributions to
the Jewish National Fund.
Thus, the essential element of
Tisha B'Av is the re-enactment of
past tragedy as if we ourselves
had experienced its over-
whelming impact. Remembrance
becomes the secret of redemp-
tion. The re-enactment
stimulates us to seek greater
spiritual heights.
The days of tragedy sensitize
us to the historical sacrifices of
our people, to the needs of those
who still suffer in our own day,
and the necessity of individual
responsibility that leads to com-
munal redemption. The crescendo
of catastrophe is transformed
into a paean of faith, deeds of
loving kindness, and a seeking of
return and repentance as the
Days of Awe draw near.

Arab expectations soar to
stratospheric heights with the

pro-PLO statement of the
European Community touched
off new Arab demands.
The PLO charged that the
Europeans had failed to endorse
an independent Palestinian state
and the PLO as the sole
representative of the
Palestinians. The Saudis com-
plained that the declaration was
"vague" and "insufficient." King
Khalid urged the Germans to
help the Arabs regain control of
Jerusalem. Both Jordan and
Saudi Arabia called for more
lethal weapons.
For a welcome change,. the
media was sympathetic to
Israel's apprehensions. The
scathing New York Times
editorial denouncing the
European statement was echoed
in The New Republic, The
Washington Post, The
Washington Star, The Miami
Herald and other publications.
Inflammatory Speech
In his National Press Club
speech on June 19, Hussein urged
the United States to abandon
"partisan support of Israeli
expansionism" and "en-
slavement" of Palestinians in
Israeli-occupied Arab territories
lest it incur "alienation" of a
friendly people, the
"radicalization" of their
"moderates," and the
"disruption" of interests.
Jordan has denied that it will
provide the PLO with a base
against Israel, but the Press Club
speech was an incendiary PLO
fussilade. This was the same
Hussein who in his
autobiography acknowledged
that Israel had helped to rescue
him in 1958, when his oil supply
had been cut off after the Kassem
revolt in Iraq and the Saudis
refused to supply him; and the
same Hussein whom Israel saved
when it deterred a Syrian in-
vasion after he expelled the PLO
in 1970.
What accounts for Hussein's
extraordinary volte face?
"Money," the blunt Sadat told
Little wonder that
congressmen are perturbed by
President Carter's decision to sell
Jordan 100 M-60-A-3 tanks
equipped with night vision

Arab friend need the tanks to

Israel? And does the United

The administration's proposal
to upgrade the aggressive

that must surely deepen Israel's

vanishing when they were tested.
In a biting editorial on the

choices. "One is to deny the

"The other course is to defer

Squadron Attacks Divorce Counsel Offered
'56' as 'Unhelpful'
NEW YORK (JTA) Howard Squadron, who
assumed office as chairman of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations,
sharply criticized the statement released in Jerusalem in
which 56 prominent American Jews, including three of
his predecessors, took issue with policies of Prime
Minister Menachem Begin's government.
IN A STATEMENT here. Squadron said: "I find it
most regrettable that American Jewish leaders should
engage in this kind of public debate concerning the
policies pursued by the government of Israel. Such
debate is always unhelpful and divisive.
"It creates the inevitable impression that the dif-
ferences within the Jewish community are more im-
portant than the areas of agreement. In fact, the Jewish
community is united on the most important matters:
"FIRST, that Jerusalem shall remain undivided and
the capital of Israel, with free access to all faiths.
Second, that the Camp David accords represent a great
achievement for peace and that the effort to achieve a
workable autonomy arrangement for the West Bank and
Gaza should be persistently pursued. Third that Israel is
a functioning democracy and that its government will
rise or fall on the basis of the wishes of the people of
Israel, who are quite capable of carrying on great debates
among themselves."

Here is another example of
efforts to aid families offered by
Jewish Family Service of
Broward County, a beneficiary
agency of Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale.
A request tor divorce coun-
seling isn't the most common of
the calls we receive, but when it
comes we know we are really
getting involved in several treat-
ment situations all at once. There
is the man and his feelings and
needs, the woman and hers, the
husband and wife who are dealing
with leaving each other, and the
family as a whole, which all need
As an example, when Mr.X
called asking for help in telling
his children about an imminent
divorce, our first request was to
see Mr. and Mrs. X together. He
understandably hesitated, until
we explained that we had no
investment in trying to "make
them stay married" if they were
sure of their decision. However, a
chance to clarify their situation
and their feelings would probably
make it easier to go ahead in
dealing with each other and the
children. He agreed.
We proceeded to work together
for a period of about three
months. During this time, Mr. .
and Mrs. X came in together and
individually as each of them came
to understand his or her own
feelings and position. As ex-
pected, there were some difficult
sessions lots of anger and hurt
feelings expressed, but there was
also some joy as the blaming be-
tween them lessened and they
could talk and plan the future
they had chosen.
We also spent time with the
X's two children, meeting usually
with the whole family together.
This gave everyone a chance to
talk openly about their feelings
rather than to hold them inside
and stay mad and scared. Some
of these sessions were very in-
tense children most always
want their parents together
and the X children were putting
on the pressure. Talking out
everyone's feelings seemed to
help them accept the situation
and begin to look at how they
would continue their relation-
ships with their parents in this
new situation.
All of this is not meant to make
divorce or divorce counseling
sound simple. It is a painful,
difficult, complex set of circum-
stances and each situation is
unique. Still, we have found that
the process can be made easier for
everyone concerned when the
opportunity of dealing with'
feelings is made possible through
divorce counseling. Everyone
knows legal counsel is needed in a
divorce; it is our feeling that
"feeling counsel" is equally as

apart, it is worse than ad
hominem with respect to Reagan
himself. It is a reflection of the
Carter-Strauss tactic ever since
the 1980 run for the presidency
began. The deadly duo have been
ad hominem all the way.
THE MOST paintul example
of this, clearly, has been Carter's
handling of Sen. Kennedys

refused to recognize exists on the
presumption that Kennedy is his
moral inferior.

Peres warned that if Israel did

Imerican pressure for either a
fcturn to Geneva or a return to
he Rogers Plan in 1981.
HE SAID this was because

towards the question of the
powers of the proposed autonomy

never a thought that it is but a
stone's throw, say, from Bert
Lance to Chappaquiddick, if one
wants to throw stones at all. and
apparently that is precisely what
Carter and Strauss intend doing
in the same way that they have
done it all along.
The irony in this game plan for
handling Reagan is that Carter's
sanctimoniousness is shown up
for what it is: a gutless moral
fibre, reckoned in his own terms,
that makes him no more eligible
for the presidency than the
opponent he intends to pillory.
BUT THIS is something that
Carter-watchers have known all
along. It is not just Kennedy and
Reagan with whom he has
refused to discuss issues.
California's Gov. Brown com-
plained about this very thing
during his own brief candidacy,
and so has every other presi-
dential hopeful whose hat hit the
brim of the ring even if only
What emerges is that Carter is
unable to discuss issues because
he has a first term behind him of
exquisitely revealing non-
performance except for the Camp
David accords, which were dead
even before they were signed, a
fact only few people were willing
to admit from the very begin-
ning, but which is emerging as an
incontrovertible reality today.
This is at the core of the up-
coming Democratic campaign
strategy the need to duck
issues as a component of the
President's non-performance in
office. But ad hominem is a two-
way street, and one ought not
presume that Mr. Reagan will
avoid riding down it if he has to.
And then, Sunday school teacher
or not. the President is bound to
find out just how deplorable ad
hominem can be.
WHEN YOU argue that a man
ought not to be president because
he panicked in a moment of stress
(Kennedy at Chappaquiddick). it
is easy to argue that a man ought
not to be president who is
"hardly more" than a movie
Sexual hypocrisy being what it
is in America. Sen. Kennedy may
well have been done in by that
argument. But let no one assume
that Ronald Reagan will remain
mum. Behind anyone's sanc-
timoniousness, and that includes
President Carter's there lurk
many skeletons. Indeed, sanc-
timoniousness is born and bred of
skeletons, and surely the GOP
will know how to search them out
in an ad hominem campaign of
their own if that is what will be
required of them.

U.S. Leaders Angered by Resolution
United Nations Security Council
was accused of "hypocrisy and
political chicanery" in an angry
reaction to the resolution it
adopted condemning Israel for
"legislative and administrative
measursflK to alter the charac-
ter and status of the Holy City of
Jerusak _

president of the
Zionist Federation,

ment and an all-out effort to erase
any traces of Jewish heritage

year occupation of East Jeru-
salem elicited neither condem-
nations and admonitions from
the United Nations," Sternstein
"Yet Israel's conscientious
efforts to restore archaeological
sites, retain Jerusalem's unique
character and bring peace to the
once divided city evokes criticism
and denouncements," he said.
The AZF president assailed the
UN as "a place where morality
and justice are held hostage to
the petrodollars and the influence
they wield. Once an admirable
institution, the United Nations
has today sunk deeper into the
morass of futility and sanc-
timony," he declared.
resolution was also denounced in
a joint statement issued by
Rabbis Seymour Cohen of
Chicago, Arthur Leryveld of
Cleveland and Haskel Lookstein
of New York, co-chairmen of
"The Great Pilgrimage to
Jerusalem" next November, a
project of the AZF.
"The most recent attempt in
the UN to redivde Jerusalem and
to end Israeli sovereignty shows
that powerful forces around the
world remain determined to seize
the heart of the Jewish people
and remove it from the Jewish
State," they said.
"It could happen unless the
Jews of America impress upon all
concerned, including the Exec-
utive and Legislative branches of
government, the meaning of
Jerusalem to Jews everywhere.
This is the purpose of The Great
Pilgrimage to Jerusalem, in
which more than 1,000 American
Jews, accompanied by 100
rabbis, will 'go up' to Jerusalem
next November."
RABBI Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union of Amer-
ican Hebrew Congregations, said
"It is deeply disappointing that
the Administration merely
abstained from and did not veto
the latest UN resolution
denouncing Israel. This reso-
lution undercuts the Camp David
process,, encourages hardline
Arab states in their refusal to
enter into peace talks with Israel
and gives heart to the FLO and
its vow to destroy Israel by
means of terrorist attacks
against the civilian population,"
the Reform rabbi said.
Howard Squadron, president
of the American Jewish Con-
gress, said the U.S. should have
vetoed the resolution. "We are
deeply distressed over the
American action in abstaining on
a resolution that seeks to
challenge and undermine the
Camp David peace process. Its
adoption preempts negotiations
between the parties and renders
them meaningless. The proposals
embodied in the resolution would
return the city to the condition of
divisiveness and strife that
characterized the long years pre-
ceding its reunification in 1967,"
he said.
The Anti-Defamation League
of B'nai B'rith told President
Carter that "America's con-
tinuous abstentions in the United
Nations on resolutions which
threaten Israel's security and
vital interests are lamentable
examples of U.S. vacillation in
support of a trusted ally."
ADL's associate national
director, in a telegram to the
President, also said "The U.S.
abstention undermines America's
own efforts in pursuing the Camp
David peace process and streng-
thens the hand of rejectionist
forces. The U.S. action is in-
defensible in view of public
acknowlegements by American
government officials that the
Security Council vote endangers

Israeli Demand for
U.S. Visas Not Up
American Consul, James Carr,
reported no significant increase
in the number of Israelis asking
for entry visas to the U.S. this
year compared with the same
period in 1979. According to
travel agency sources however,
there has been a substantial
increase in the purchase of one-
way tickets to the U.S. by
Israelis who do not possess
immigration visas.
HE ADMITTED that there
are many ways to circumvent
that procedure. The El Al offices
report that many Israelis who
bought a return ticket on a
charter flight or an "Apex-
round trip, which costs only
slightly more than a full fare one-
way ticket, have failed to use the
return portion on the designated
date and thus forfeited their right
to fly home at the reduced rate

is dedicating tonight's (Friday,
July 18) service at 8:15 p.m. in
his honor.
Members of Ramat Shalom

quotations from his works, and
the story of his life, to give an in-
sight into the beliefs of one of the
century's great philosophers now
living in Jerusalem.
The congregation will sing a
birthday song to him, Ad Me-a

entire service and sent to Dr.

Anderson Tours Israel
On the first day of his four-day
visit to Israel, John B. Anderson,
seeking to be president of the
U.S. on an independent ticket,
criticized President Carter's
handling of the Middle East
peace process.
This is the fourth time that
Anderson has been to Israel. He
was expected to make a bedside
visit to ailing Prime Minister
Menachem Begin before he leaves
for the remainder of his overseas
trip. His plans, however, to visit
Jordan and also the West Bank
Palestinians were canceled.
"By singling out the set-
tlements in the West Bank as an
obstacle to peace," he said, the
Carter Administration ignored
many of the other factors that are
surely equivalent obstacles to the
conclusion of the autonomy .
He believes that as the final
step of the peace process, the
U.S. should place its Embassy,
now in Tel Aviv, in Jerusalem,
thus giving complete recognition
by the U.S. to Jerusalem as
Israel's captial.
Anderson repeated his refusal
to recognize the PLO until it
renounces terrorism and accepts
Israel's existence within "fully
defined and recognized boun-
A recent Harris Poll indicated
that Anderson had the backing of
about 56 percent of American
Jews who were polled.

News in Brief
Dory Schary Passes at Age 74
Schary, honorary chairman
of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, is
dead. Mr. Schary passed
away Monday at the age of
74 following a lengthy

Long active as chairman
of the ADL in a variety of
Jewish causes, Schary was
a noted Hollywood and
Broadway writer, producer
and director.
Bora in Newark, N.J., Mr.
Schary went to Hollywood in the
1930's where he wrote more than
40 motion pictures and produced
or was in charge of production of
some 350 additional films.
His credits included the
documentary film, Israel: The
Right to Be, and he was chairman
of the Bicentennial Conference of
Cultural Arts of the National
Jewish Welfare Board.
One of his most distinguished
films was Sunrise at Campobello,
the story of the struggle waged
by Franklin Delano Roosevelt
against polio, which was one of
his major Broadway successes. It
was staged in 1958, just one year
after he was fired from Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer for what Mr.
Schary always insisted was his
support of liberal causes.
Among his films was the
Academy Award-winning Boys
Town. Other of his credits in-
cluded Edison the Man. Young
Tom Edison. Battle of Gettys-
burg, Lonely Hearts, and Act I.
His first interest in the theater
came as a teen-ager with roles in
YMHA productions.
He is survived by his wife,
Miriam; three children and seven
Minister Begin, recovering from
a mild heart attack at the Hadas-
sah Hospital in Jerusalem, was
transferred Monday from the
. intensive care unit to a private
ward in the cardiac department.
The Prime Minister's condition
remains stable, and his doctors
are satisfied with his recovery.
Supreme Court has issued a
temporary injunction barring the
government from taking over the
Arab-owned East Jerusalem
Electric Co., which serves the
West Bank. The High Court
began hearings on appeals
against the deportations of two
West Bank mayors and a Moslem
religious judge.
Both cases have important
political ramifications. The in-
junction, answerable by Energy
Minister Yitzhak Modai and the
West Bank military commander,
, gave the government 45 days to
show cause why its takeover
decision should not be reversed.
The government announced late
last year that it would terminate
the electric company's concession
within a year in order to
"eliminate inefficiency."
NETIVOT, Israel A sim-
mering hulturkampf between
secular Jews and the Orthodox
majority in this normally quiet
Negev township erupted into
angry demonstrations and street
brawls over the weekend
requiring intervention by police.
There were some minor in-
juries, but no arrests reported.
The police estimated that at least
4,000 of the town's 10,000
population participated in the
melee which began Friday night
and continued intermittently
through Saturday. The town was
quiet Sunday, but police
patrolled the streets.
The basic issue is the in-
was the municipal swimming
pool which is open six days a
week three days for men and
three days for women. The
secular community has not de- i
manded that the pool be kept
open on the Sabbath, but they
insist that it be open to men and
women on the same days so that
families can enjoy the facility

NEW YORK Nine members
of the Jewish Defense League
took over the Manhattan office of
Interns for Peace and demanded
that the group stop helping
Arabs in Israel. Eight persons,
including officials of Hashomer
Hatzair and Americans for Pro-
gressive Israel, which also share
the office complex, were ejected
by the JDL group.
Dov Becker, who led the group,
called the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency to tell of the takeover. He
said the JDL demands that
Interns for Peace "give up the
dangerous false hope that Jews
and Arabs can peacefully co-exist
inside or outside the land of
Israel" and Becker said the
Interns should "disband im-
mediately unless all their efforts
are directed in aiding only poor
Jewish families and not Arab
ones in the State of Israel."
BONN Criminal charges
have been filed in a West Berlin
court against nine former judges
of the Hitler era who are accused
of having sentenced 350 Germans
and non Germans to death for
political reasons. All were mem-
bers of the notorious Volhs-
gerichtshof which handled the
cases of political opponents of the
Nazi regime.
The charges were brought by
the Frankfurt-based West Ger-
man Association of Nazi Victims
and the Union of Anti-Fascists.
A spokesman for the association
conceded that there are major
differences of opinion in legal
circles as to whether the charges
will be acted upon under present
West German laws.
To date there have been no
successful charges against former
Nazi judges.
JERUSALEM In a scries of
hard-hitting speeches here last
week, the veteran American
Jewish leader Max Fisher of
Detroit called on the World Zion-
ist Organization to overhaul its
structure which is based on
political parties. Fisher, who is
chairman of the Jewish Agency's
Board of Governors, attended the
Agency's annual Assembly here
and also addressed the meeting of
the Zionist General Council
which preceded it.
Fisher claimed that the party
system is an anachronism which
has repeatedly proven detri-
mental to the Jewish Agency.
"We have seen how party politics
can interfere with the effective
functioning of the WZO and the
Jewish Agency," Fisher said in a
speech to the Council.
