From JTA Reports
U.S. Middle East Envoy Sol
Linowitz, completing his final
mission on behalf of the Carter
Administration by visiting Presi-
dent Sadat in Egypt and Prime
Minister Begin in Israel, said he
warned the Israeli Cabinet "the
United States would deeply
regret" any move by the State to
annex the Golan Heights.
. Linowitz later said he has sug-
gested to Reagan advisors that
Henry Kissinger become the new
envoy. Kissinger is visiting
Begin and Sadat this month.
Two bills to annex the occupied
Syrian territory to Israel came up
before the Cabinet last week and
were defeated. As a result. Begin
won a confidence vote. 56 to 2,

Linowitz conveyed to Sadat
and Begin an oral pledge from

Cairo. Foreign Minister Kamal
Hassan Ali, reiterating Egypt's
commitment to the "letter and
spirit" of the Camp David agree-
ments, called last week for a
summit meeting, but, acknow-

foreign policy.
In the United Nations at a
meeting of the 15 Security Coun-
cil member nations, the United
States voted with the other 14
members in a unanimous appeal
to let two Palestinian mayors
return to their towns in the West
Bank. Israel's UN Ambassador
Yehuda Z. Blum accused the
Council of "hypocrisy" and said
it was "regrettable" that the U.S.
supported the return of the
mayors, after the U.S. previously
had abstained twice on similar

of Dec. 20 southern Lebanese
towns in reprisal for a raid the
day before by Israel forces
against Palestinian terrorist
bases during which three Syrian
soldiers were reportedly killed. It
was the first time Syrian soldiers
were killed. On Sunday, Dec. 21,
Israel's deputy defense minister.
Mordecai Zippouri, apologized to
Syria for the death of its three
soldiers, even though Israeli
military experts are not yet con-
vinced the deaths were the direct
result of the raid that destroyed
Palestinian bases and killed more
than a dozen terrorists.
Among recent visitors to Cairo
was New York City's Mayor Ed-
ward Koch. He met with Presi-

assured him Egypt is committed
to the Camp David Accords.
Koch then went on to Israel
where he delivered Sadat's
"highest praise for Prime
Minister Begin."

Riverside now has seven chapels to serve the

why since 1935, Riverside has been the standard by which
people compare funeral service.
At Riverside, families are served by the largest
Jewish staff of any funeral director in Florida. They are
people with a genuine understanding of families' needs,
regardless of financial circumstances.
At Riverside, families find total dedication
to Jewish tradition. And economical help in arranging
service between Florida and New York, or anywhere else
in the world.

LION's Joyously Roar Support for United Jewish Appeal
At the home of Min and Victor Gruman, Ladies
Involved, Overcoming Need (LION) had their an-
nual fund-raising meeting (See story below "Room
at the Top") for the United Jewish Appeal of the
Greater Fort Lauderdale. Among the principals in
attendance were those pictured above: Jean Shapiro

Room at the Top
One Woman's Point of View
I never joined a sorority in col-
lege, and I never regretted it until
yesterday. Yesterday, Min
Gruman graciously opened her
home for the top-drawer LION
group of the UJA-Jewish Federa-
tion Women's Division. After
four years of reading about it in
the Floridian and seeing that
la t If diamond-studded pin on
other women, I was there.
This sorority has great diver-
sity. established Floridians
and newcomers, East side. West
side, young and old. There are
two unifying qualities in these
women: warmth and purpose.
The warmth was everywhere,
beginning with Victor Gruman's
taking time from his own
grueling schedule as campaign
chairman to greet each of us on
the terrace. Within five minutes
of our first sip of wine, those of us
who, like me, were freshmen,
were meeting and enjoying
everyone in the room.
The purpose was everywhere,
too, best stated by Evvy Gross
whom presiding Lion chairman
Jean Shapiro asked to give the
"We come together today
because we share a feeling of
responsibility for our people in
Israel, throughout the world, and
here at home. We realize that in
this imperfect world with its
many injustices, we must, each
year, stand up and be counted as
women of conscience. We are for-
tunate because we have both the
means and the desire to help our
fellow Jews. We hope that our
actions today will serve as an
example for other women to join
us, both in substantial giving and
active service in the future."
Try reading that gutsy little
paragraph aloud. It takes
twenty-two seconds. These
warm, bright women are not
long-winded. They do important
work and they don't waste their
time or mine!
Co-chairman Helene Soref
introduced Kenneth Schwartz of
the National UJA Campaign
Policy Board. After he gave us a
confidential briefing, each of us
made her pledge for the coming
year. Ethel Waldman, campaign
chairman, finally saw her months
of devoted hard work with Jan
Salit, our Women's Division pro-
fessional director, begin to come
to fruition: 93 percent of the
women exceeded their previous
year's gifts. Executive director
Les Gottleib said, "We are, in
this room, removing a nail that
OPEC and the PLO are trying to
pound into Israel's coffin."
Next on the agenda was our
"pinning." Co-chairmen Celia
Goldfarb, Hildreth Levin, and
Helene Soref presided over
that again, warmth and pur-
pose, and hugs and kisses. Here
are the names of our pledge class.
(That's a great unintentional
pun, isn't it! Pledge class ... we
made some pretty classy pledges
to get into it!) Anita Axelrod,

A New Misguided Missile
The American Jewish community has had the
misfortune of having to deal with diplomatic mis*
guided missiles in almost every Administration since
1948. President Eisenhower had John Foster Dulles.
President Nixon had William Rogers. President
Carter had Andrew Young. And now, even before the
Reagan Administration has been sworn into office,
along comes Sen. Charles Percy soaring off into
space from his own launching pad.
The Republican solon of Illinois, who is slated to
head the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, decided, in his conversation with Soviet
leaders, to preempt President-Elect Reagan and his
entire new Cabinet to formulate foreign policy for the
^United States. In remarks reeking of political hali-
ptosis. Percy reportedly advocated a Palestinian state
I headed by the machinegun-toting chief of the
I Palestine Liberation Organization, Yasir Arafat.
To be sure, Percy told his Russian hosts that
I Arafat "is a terrorist, he has done some dastardly
things.'" But, the legislator noted, the darling of the
Jiternational jet-setting bomb squad "has a com-
pelling desire to be a chief of state, no matter how
small it is." How considerate of Percy to think of
,his. How compassionate. How noble. That's like re-
varding the local mugger with his own territory and
a ready supply of victims just so long as he
loesn't stray into the next neighborhood. Of course.
Lrafat would like to be a chief of state, "no matter
how small it is." For Arafat, that small state is
Possibly the best evaluation of Percy's contri-
Jbution to non-peace in the Mideast was made by

mobilized emergency relief efforts to help relieve the
suffering of the tragic Italian victims of the devas-
tating earthquake.
The Joint Distribution Committee, the central
Jewish overseas relief organization, set up an
emergency relief program and transmitted checks
contributed by Jews from all over America in the
amount of $70,000 to the Italian Consul General.
JDC's executive vice president, Ralph Goldman,
reports that the JDC office in Rome has been alerted
to make available all its social welfare services to the
1 talian Government and people.
Remarkably, Russian Jewish doctors and nurses
now in Rome as immigrants on their way to America
have volunteered their medical and healing skills.
The Jewish communities in Italy have been sending
truckloads of blankets and clothing to the victims in
the Naples earthquake area. And in New York,
leaders of the Jewish and Italian communities met to
work out joint rescue programs.
In a way. this spontaneous response of
American Jews to the Italian people is our means of
saying "thank you" to the Italian people for their
strong stand against Nazi anti-Semitism and foi
their constant generosity in welcoming Jews and
other victims of oppression in Europe.
Above all, it is an expression of the Bible's
teaching. "You shall not shut your hand from youi
needy brother."

since Election Day People began
to realize some of the religious
zealots controlling a share of the

off the track of responsibility. A
Gott Mil tins kind of super-

perverse logic assigning the rest

FOR THE modern political

shaped by a "godless minority of

'Dirty War' Against Subversion
nday, January2,1981
Number 1
At 8:10 p.m.. on May 27. 1976,
a bottle of gasoline smashed
through the plate glass window
of a store on Avenida Diaz Velez
in Buenos Aires. Moments later,
the perpetrators scattered
political leaflets as they fled the
scene. Nearby. Horacio Oscar
Saragovi. then 17 years of age.
was waiting in the dark, cold
night for the bus that was to take
him to a club meeting at the
Jewish Center.
The bottle, which shattered the
display window, also shattered
young Saragovi's life. It began a
bizarre sequence of events which
started with his arrest on false
charges of committing the crime.
A military court found him guilty
of "alteration of the public order,
incitement to group violence, and
violence against the police force,''
and sentenced him to six years in
hundreds of innocent victims of
what the Argentine military refer
to as "the dirty war" against
subversion. The Inter-American
Commission on Human Rights
has declared that Saragovi is
genuinely innocent of the charges
filed against him. The Saragovi
case was described at length in
the IACHR Report on Human
Rights in Argentina, based upon
a visit which this agency of the
Organization of American States
Saragori plans to continue
studies, begun at age Id

about training for the rab-
binate. Because his religious
upbringing is so important
In him. he was particularly
pained and perplexed by the
/act that the rabbi was not
permitted to visit some other
lens in prison
made to Argentina in September
The Saragovi case is unusual
because Saragovi is now a free
man. The four-year nightmare
ended on July 22, 1980, when
Argentine President Videla. in an
unprecedented action, commuted
his sentence. No other individual
convicted of a political crime has
had his sentence commuted since
the Argentine military seized
power in March. 1976.
The fact that the military
government recognized that an
injustice had been done and
moved to remedy the situation
holds out hope for others who
may have similarly been illegally
convicted and sentenced for
crimes that they did not commit.
It is also significant because it
demonstrates that protest from
the United States against human
rights violations in Argentina
can, in some instances, yield
positive results.

as such, have not been targeted
by security forces, but once
picked up on subversion or other
charges, they are at serious dis-
advantage. If Jews and non-Jews
are arrested at the same time, the
Jews are less likely to be released.
Jews are generally subjected to
more severe treatment,
motivated by anti-Semitism.
The two other men arrested at
the time of the incident were sub-
sequently released, but Saragovi
remained in detention. His inter
rogators hurled anti-Semitic
epithets at him as they inquired
about Jewish community ac-
tivities and asked it synagogues
were being used to manufacture
bombs. Three members of the

volunteers making phone calls for
UJA from the Jewish Com-
munity Center, the Rabbinic
Cabinet, in its message to rabbis,
noted: "Your UJA Shabbat one
week earlier will be a key element
' in stimulating high levels of
enthusiasm and participation in
your Super Sunday."
Rabbi Stanley S. Rabinowitz,
chairman of the national Rab-
binic Cabinet, sent to the rabbis
an article prepared by Rabbi
Gerald I. Wolpe titled "Why A
UJA Shabbat?"
Rabbi Wolpe wrote: "The UJA
is the major conduit for monies to
be conveyed to the people of
Israel for their vital social needs.
For more than three decades,
Jewish communities throughout
the world have responded to the
challenges facing the Jewish
State by contributing millions of
dollars for the absorption of
nearly two million immigrants
and for a wide range of
lifebuilding services. That
humanitarian support is even
more essential today, when
economic strains are wreaking
havoc in the face of continuing
needs for defense, absorption of
newcomers and internal growth.
Despite more than 40 years of
intensive campaigns and some
dramatic successes, it is as-
tonishing how ill-informed many
Jews are about the func-
tions of UJA, local federations,
their relationships with each
other and with constituent
agencies. This is particularly true
of younger members who have
never been introduced to UJA
through their own commitment
and program of giving. It is
important to tell the story of
UJA. Our commitment to the
Jewish People involves an un-
derstanding of our traditional
view of community."

JCC Youth Services Co-
ordinator Scott Snyder (above) is
offering many exciting new
programs for the winter. Snyder
said: "The well diversified ac-
tivities are for all the kids in the
family. Our programs range from
classes for the little ones to a
three-act play for the high school
students. Everything is new and
exciting. Come on down and hang
out; try, us, you'll like us."
For the grade school children,
Scott will be offering such in-
teresting programs as "To Be or
Not To Be," "A Ball of Wax,"
'Stage Struck," "Cook's Kit-
chen," and more.
An ongoing Teen-Tween
Theatre Workshop ending with a
three-act performance for the
entire membership, will include
techniques of acting, and

For the Teens, there is TAB
(Teen Activities Board), over-
nights at the JCC, Saturday
night socials, Sunday brunches
with guest speakers, and a
regular Teen night every Monday
from 7 to 9 p.m.
Call Scott, 792-6700, just to
rap or for any additional infor-
mation on the programs.
Childrens Activities
Children's activities abound at
the JCC, ranging from pre-
schoolers to high school.
The YoungSingles
If you are young and single
and have just moved to Florida,
you've probably noticed the mul-
titude of condominiums that are
located here. If you have seen a
large number of condos, you may
have noticed that the age of the
average resident in those housing
complexes is over 50. That might
make you think that everyone
who resides in this state is old
enough to be your mother.
Well, that is not so. There are
many young adults, people in
their 20's and early 30's who live
here, too.
"Where are the people who are
my age!", you may ask. "Where
are they hiding?" Let me tell you
those people aren't hiding;
you're just not looking in the
right places. By any chance, have
you been to the Jewish Com-
munity Center?
The JCC, located at 6501 W.
Sunrise Blvd., in Fort Lauder-
dale, is a great place to meet and
make friends with people who are
your age. I know that, because I
got acquainted with my friends
at some of the JCC's activities.
What are those activities? The
Center sponsors many different
get-togethers; among them are
Sunday volleyball games and
brunches. The volleyball for
young adults is held on the
second Sunday of each month
from 1 to 3 p.m. These games are
a lot of fun, and are not just for
athletes. The games provide the
players with chances to show off
their athletic prowess, or to act
silly and have fun in accordance
with their clumsiness. Take it
from someone who knows,
volleyball Sundays are very
Brunches for young adults are
held at the JCC on the last
Sunday of every month, starting
at 11 a.m. If you like cream
cheese and bagels, you'll love the
brunches! For a small fee, you
can have all that you want to eat,
and you will also have the op-
portunity to chat with a very
friendly crowd who will welcome
you into the fold with no
reservation. Like the volleyball
games, the brunches are also
great opportunity for clowning
around and having fun!
In addition to the volleyball
and brunches, the JCC also
sponsors parties and guest
speakers. For example, on Dec. 6
the Center had a cocktail party
which had a more relaxed atmos-
phere than a bar.usually has, and
the drinks much cheaper than
those at a bar. On Dec. 10, a
guest speaker reviewed the book,
"In Praise of Yiddish," and
everyone found the speaker to be
amusing and entertaining.
The Jewish Community Center
is the home of dozens of other
activities, in addition to the ones
that have been mentioned here.
All of them are guaranteed to be
enjoyable! That is why I strongly
encourage you to check out the
Center today. You're bound to
have fun!

The Jewish Community Center
announced that Avi Okun, artist
(pictured above), will open his

The public is invited. Wine and

An abstract expressionist,
Avi's sensitive, warm and charis-
matic personality is felt in his
imaginative colorful paintings. A
prolific painter, he says he's
"possessed, and the need to paint
is great within himself."
At the Gallery, one is likely to

Teachers'TuB'shvat Workshop Jan. 4
The Jewish Arbor Day, Tu
B'shvat, this year is celebrated
Tuesday, Jan. 20. In anticipating
of the day, the third in a series of
Professional Growth In-Service
Workshop for teachers of the
Jewish schools of North Broward
County will be held Sunday Jan.
4. from 9 a.m. to noon at Temple
Beth Orr, 2151 Riverside Dr.,
Coral Springs.
The teaching of the Tu B'shvat
festival and innovative classroom
strategies are the twin themes of
the workshop sponsored by the
Central Agency for Jewish
Education of the Jewish Federa-
tion of Greater Fort Lauderdale
in cooperation with the Council of
Rabbis and Educators of North
Rabbi Donald S. Gerber. spiri-
tual leader of Temple Beth Orr.
said: "We are delighted to serve
as the hosts for the In-Service
Workshop and to assist in en-
hancing the professional com-
petencies of the teachers of our
community. We see the teacher
at the very core of the educa-
tional process of the transmission
of our Jewish heritage to the next
Two special features will mark
this particular workshop. The
opening session will be devoted
to an analysis of the contempor-
ary situation in the Middle East,
including Israel-Arab relation-
"We specifically programmed
a session of this nature," said
Abraham J. Gittelson, Federa-
tion's Director of Education and
Associate Director of Central
Agency for Jewish Education,
"because Israel plays such a
prominent role in almost every
subject of the Jewish school cur-
riculum. We feel that our
teachers should have a compre-
hensive knowledge of the
current Middle East situation, as
well as a broad grasp of the
religious, historical and cultural
role Israel has played in the
Jewish experience."
Following individual skill
workshops in which teachers of
the community will lead sessions
and describe a variety of creative
techniques in the teaching of
Israel, the teachers will partici-
pate in a Tu B'shvat Seder, which
will include readings, singing,
blessings and prayers, four cups
of wine and the fruits of Israel.
Barbara Fellner, educational
director of Temple Beth Orr,
noted that the Jewish Arbor Day
"Is a holiday that stimulates a
wide variety of activities and
programs, especially in con-
nection with the Jewish National
Fund (JNF). Through these
activities the students develop a
close tie with Israel and its
growth and development."
Part of the day's program will
be devoted to JNF, with the
regional director, Shirley Miller,
who has an office on W. Oakland
Park Blvd., supplying maps,
posters, displays and other
materials for the teachers, as well
as the traditional "blue box" and
stamps for the sale of trees upon
the occasion of the holiday.
All of the schools are planning
special programs for the holiday
The Workshop and seminar
are part of the Professional In-
centive Program (PIP) in which
grants are made available to
those teachers who participate in
the on-going teacher training
programs during the year.

Haig made his views known in a
speech in Miami on Oct. 27, 1979,

possible Republican Presidential
candidate. It is understood here
that he has not deviated from the
positions he expressed on that
HE POSED several questions
relative to American policy
toward the Middle East. The
following are the questions and
his responses:
Question: "Is Israel a strategic
liability to American national
interests, being worthy of
support only on moral grounds?"
Answer: "No. It is moral to
support the right of the Jewish
people to their own State. It is
gratifying and important that
Israel is a lively democracy,
sharing our basic political values
in a world hostile to democracy.
As the strongest military power
in the Middle East, Israel's very
existence serves to deter Soviet
aggression. As in the past, a
strong, viable Israel will continue
to offer assistance to American
interests and activities which
bolster our friends in the region
and elsewhere."
Question: "Does Israel have an
unfair veto over U.S. com-
munications with the PLO that
hampers the peace process?"
Answer: "No. As the U.S.
pledged in 1975 and reiterated in
1979, so long as the PLO advo-
cates views incompatible with the
peace process, the U.S. will not
recognize or negotiate with the
PLO. It is simply wrong to
believe, as some of our diplomats
seem to suggest, that official
recognition is necessary to com-
munication. Communication is
not the issue between the U.S.
and the PLO. Attempts to draw
the PLO into the negotiations
without agreement on the goals
of the (Camp David) process
undermines President (Anwar)
Sadat (of Egypt) as well as Prime
Minister (Menachem) Begin (of
Israel). We should not com-
what we have accom-
already through con-
to the outspoken op-
of Sadat's courageous
Question: "Is the Egyptian-
Israeli peace treaty contrary to
U.S. interests because it leaves
out other parties to the conflict?"
Answer: "No. The Egyptian-
Israeli treaty does not bar other
states from joining the peace
process. The treaty of peace be-
tween the leading Arab state and
Israel is a deterrent to war. With-
out the treaty, neither U.S. in-
terests nor those of other can be
Question: "Will the price of oil
be stabilized by a settlement of
the Arab-Israeli conflict?"
Answer: "No. The 'link' be-
tween an Arab-Israeli settlement
and oil prices is tenuous. First,
not all members of OPEC (Or-
ganization of Petroleum Ex-
porting Countries) are Arab.
Second, oil prices are determined
more by supply and demand and
the value of the dollar than the
issue of who rules Jerusalem.'
Question: "Is recognition of
the PLO necessary to strengthen
U.S.-Saudi ties?"
Answer: "No. Our apparent
differences with Saudi Arabia do
not rest solely with the Arab-
Israeli conflict. Several dif-
ferences are rooted in these
developments: 1. Our failure to
contest Soviet activity in Africa
and Asia; 2. the Soviet-Cuban
build-up in South Yemen; 3. our
inability to prevent the fall of the
Shah; 4. our mismanagement of
the dollar. Recognizing the PLO

Call for Closing

teen French organizations
comprising the "Common Front

French government to close the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion's Paris office.
According to Shimon Samuels,
director of the Anti-Defamation
Lealgue of B'nai B'rith's Euro-
pean office in Paris, the appeal,
made to the members of the
French Parliament, said that
despite attempts "to clear the

organizations with links to the
IN CALLING for the closing
of the PLO office, the appeal said
the matter should be treated with
"urgency" for the welfare of the
nation. The Common Front for
Israel asserted that unjustifiable
attacks on Israel or threats to in-
dividual Jews place all nations
and all peoples in jeopardy as
was demonstrated in the Rue
Copernic bombing, in which non-
Jews were also killed.
' "It is quite impossible." the
appeal went on, "to draw a dis-
tinction between anti-Semitism,
which refuses to grant one man
the* same rights as another
because he is a Jew, and anti-
Zionism, which refuses to grant a
people the same right as other
peoples because they are Jews."

We Can't Turn Backs on Jews
Anti-Semitism, the real undy-
ing monster, is on the prowl
again. I just came back from De-
troit, where I heard a report on it
from people who keep track of it.
You know what? For the first

by anti-Semites, if 1 am Jewish.

The old beast feeds on econom- a biblical imperative,
ic hacd times, scapegoatism and
religfous intolerance. Today it's
getting fed extra rations by Arab
hatred for Israel, by Western
greed for Arab oil, by Arab petro
dollars and by the Soviet Union,
that vast reservoir of evil. The
new code words are Zionist and
Israel, but it's the same old beast
some people thought had been
buried at Auschwitz.
Every Jew lives with the mem-
ory of the death camps. You dont
ever, in your secret heart, under-
estimate anti-Semitism when you
remember that 2 million Jewish
children were shot and gassed by
it. especially not when Jewish
children still are being murdered.
What does this re-emergence of
anti-Semitism mean for us non-
Jews? Is it not our problem? Do
we just turn it off and push it out
of our minds? That's what most
Maybe it's because to me the
Jew represents the soul of hu-
manity. The more familiar you
become with Jewish culture and
history the more striking it is
how much these people have
striven, in the face of inhuman
adversity, to realize the human
ideals of compassion, reason, in-
telligence, reverence and toler-
ance. Like mankind itself, they
represent both strength and
That's the intellectual reason, I
guess, but there is a gut reason,
too, and that is that I will not for-
give the murder of those 2 mil-
lion children. When I remember,
and I shall never forget, those
macabre scenes of children dying
in their mothers' arms, I weep
with rage.

Clams Settled

A final settlement of U.S. claims
resulting from armed action by
Israel's forces 13 years ago
during the Six-Day War against
the American naval vessel, USS
Liberty, has been made with U.S.
government acceptance of
Israel's proposal to pay $6
million damage to the ship. The
State Department said Dec. 18
Israel will pay three annual
installments of $2 million each,
beginning next Jan. 15 "as final
settlement of the U.S. claims for
compensation for damage to the
USS Liberty." The State Depart-
ment said "the government of
Israel paid in full in 1968 the U.S.
claim for $3,323,500 on behalf of
the families of the crewmen who
were killed in the incident." In
addition, "in 1969, the govern-
ment of Israel paid in full the
U.S. claim for $3.45? 9.75 for
injuries sustained by members of

The ship was damaged by
Israeli fighter aircraft on June 8,
1967 while off the Sinai coast and
the Egyptian town of El Arish
which was being shelled during
the Six-Day War. American
casualties were 34 dead and 75
wounded. The Liberty's naval ,
role was that of a com-
munications monitor, sometimes
known as a "spy ship." John
Trattner. State Department
spokesman, said. "The incident
was thoroughly investigated in
1967 by the U.S. Navy." He
noted that "the government of
Israel immediately accepted
responsibility" and attributed
the actions to "error and con-
fusion." Trattner added that the

The rise of new Arab banks threatens to
politicize the international banking system in the

A noted leader of the Conservative movement
believes that because American Jews live in an
open, democratic society, many of them are not
"ersuaded of the worthwhileness of their
Jewishness, primarily because the religious
dimension is missing from their lives.
In an address to the national Board of
Directors of the United Synagogue of America
last weekend, the congregational arm of the
Conservative movement, Rabbi Benjamin Z.
Kreitman, executive vice president of the United
Synagogue, asserted:
"The choice is no longer to be a Jew or to
embrace another faith, or to join another com-
munity. The choice today is between being a Jew
or merging with the great mass of indifferent
Americans, indifferent to religion and indifferent
to ethnic identity or commitment."
William Schwartz, noted estate planning at-
torney and professor of law at Boston University
for the past 25 years, has been appointed dean of
the Law School by University President John R.

been serving as dean ad interim since June 1.
Schwartz, who graduated first in his class from
Boston University Law School, joined the faculty
in 1955 and was promoted to the rank of professor
in 1960. For several years, he held the Roscoe
Pound Professorship of Law. In addition to his
career as a teacher and scholar and his active
practice of law, Schwartz has served as general
director of the Association of Trial Lawyers of
America, the world's largest trial bar association.

The AT&T executive urged other business
leaders to utilize the "important pool of talent"
that exists in the Jewish community and in the

A Light Unto
Our People


A new era could be dawning for Israel's disadvantaged youngsters.
Through Youth Aliyah.
The one best hope for scores of thousands in need of special care
and residential training. To get them off the streets. To help them take
their rightful place in the Jewish future.
The need is growing. With so much of the quality of life in Israel at
stake, Youth Aliyah programs should be expanded to meet it.
But there will be fewer places for those youngsters this year. Two
thousand will be turned away. Told to wait. To roam the streets. Or
scramble for unskilled work.
Why? Who is holding up the dawn of the new era for Israel's most
precious human resource? Who is blocking the light?
We are. Because we have not heard the cry in the hearts of these
youngsters and responded, through our community campaign, with
the fullness of our hearts.
The new era cannot begin, the light of the dawn cannot emerge...
unless we provide the means to fill those empty places and
create thousands more, this year and in the crucial years ahead.
Your pledge to the 1981 regular campaign is a gift of light unto our
