in the Negev desert, it was an-
nounced here by the Smithsonian
Astrophysical Observatory.
Some of the world's leading as-

Sixteen Hurt By Explosion Of
Grenade Near Wailing Wall
teen persons (13 Jews and three
Arabs) were injured when a
hand grenade was thrown in
a narrow alley leading to the
Wailing Wall in the Old City
Three persons were hospital-
ized and the condition of one of
them was described as serious
but not grave. The wounded in-
cluded an immigrant who ar-
rived in Israel from Brooklyn in
August, and a new immigrant
from the Soviet Union. The in-
jured non-Israelis, who have al-
ready been sent home, were
both law students at Tel Aviv
University; the three Arabs who
were wounded are residents of
the Old City of Jerusalem.
The area was dosed off soon
after tlie explosion and Is still
since it was Saturday after sun-
down and a day which had no
special significance in the Sue-
cot festival. But on the eve of
Simchat Torah. the stream of
visitors resumed in full force
and more than 10,000 persons
packed the plaza facing the
Wall. The Old City's lanes were
full of visitors, but no tension
was apparent except in the im-
mediate area of the incident,
some 200 yards from the plaza.
Minister for Religious Affairs
Dr. Zerach Warhaftlg said that
not open to tae general public;
47 Arabs, most of whom live in
the vicinity, have been detained.
As a result of the incident,
there was a letup in the pilgrim-
ages made to the Western Wall,
the attempt to injure Jews on
the way to prayers at the West-
ern Wall proves that the strug-
gle for Jerusalem is, first and
foremost, a struggle for Jews'
right of approach to the Wall, a
right which Jordan denied them
for 20 years. The attackers had
apparently been encouraged by
the recent U.N. Security Coun-
cil decision denouncing Israel's
steps in Jerusalem, the Minister

Most Oppose Amendment
It was no surprise to see that eight of Florida's 12
Congressmen signed the petition which will bring to the
,J3floor of the House of Representatives a resolution to amend
Hhe Constitution to permit prayers in public schools and
Other public buildings. For some reason, this kind of ap-
proach to the dilution of the Bill of Rights goes hand in
icnd with a reactionary approach to legislation dealing
kvith civil rights and other humane social measures. To
heir credit, neither of Dade County's two Congressmen,
:Dante Fascell and Claude Pepper, were a party to this
Jlotest attempt to subvert the wisdom of our founding fath-
, ers in separating church and state.
What the supporters of the action cannot seem to
understand is that the Supreme Court did not expel God
from school but, instead, held that prayer is a personal
experience which cannot be prescribed by an agency of
the state. No person who wants to pray to God, whether in
public schools or at home, is kept from doing so by any
decision of the Supreme Court.
The high pressure which brought about the discharge
of ihe petition and a possible vote next month has already
caused bitterness and divisiveness among religious groups
without contributing anything toward the improvement of
true and meaningful religious faith and commitment the
voting record of the eight Florida Congressmen on such
issues as gun registration is a good example of how little
prayer must mean to those who also help provide the am-
munition for death in the streets.
This is not a Jewish issue, for virtually every major
Protestant body is opposed to the amendment. As the execu-
tive director of the Council for Christian Social Action of
the United Church of Christ has pointed out, Congress
"must understand that those who take religious faith se-
riously and respect the religious faith of others will vote
against the resolution and that those whose religious faith
is political expediency and false piety will vote for it."
The Way Out Of The Deadlock
The financial problems of the United Nations seem
minor compared with the effects of the general debate
which has ground on interminably as the traditional open-
ing of the General Assembly. The 150 statements of the
nations involved has been as unreal as they are boring
and leave little hope that the assembled "statesmen" have
either the capacity or the desire to settle anything.
With rare exception, every speaker has touched upon
the problems of the Middle East with either a lack of under-
standing of those problems or a cynical disregard of the
facts. Russia's Andrei Gromyko continues to accuse Israel
of aggression and, as Abba Eban pointed out, "One of the
few things that all members of the UN. have in common is
the ability to discuss each other's imperfections."
From the Foreign Minister of one of our neighbors to
the south, Ecuador, came the only glimmer of truth thus
far. The way out of the deadlock, he said bluntly, is for the
parties concerned to hold direct conversations "as egual to
equal." As the New York Times put it so well, in a year
when Americans have been talking to the mainland Chi-
nese, when the West and East Germans are talking, when
even the divided Koreans are moving toward meetings, it
should not "overstrain the ingenuity of the new Egyptian
diplomacy" to explore the idea of an "equal to equal" con-
frontation with the Israelis in discreet private confrontation.
Retirement Is Significant
Dr. LouiB Finkelstem's retirement as head of the Jew-
ish "Theological Seminary of America next June is, of
course, of greater significance than the stepping down
from a post which he has held with great distinction for
more than 30 years.
Dr. Finketatein's scholarly leadership and writings tell
only part of the story of the Seminary over the past several
decades. With him at the- helm, it became the authoritative
?oice of Conserwative Juskrism in America and the leader
in development of.what,has become the largest of the (

KUWAIT--In the "Middle East '
the great change in Soviet
policy-making after N'ikita
Khruschev's fall from, power is
particularly striking.
UNDER BOTH Stalin and
Khrushchev, Soviet external
policy consisted in sizing up
what looked like good opport-
unities. Berlin seemed exposed.
But that was a mis judgment, for
the Berlin blockade failed. Carn-
al Nasser had broken with the
Western powers. So arms and
the Aswan Dam were offered
and that went a bit better, but
it was all pretty unsystematic.
In the Arab lands the real
turning point may perhaps have
come after the disastrous Six
Day War of '67. This was the di-
rect result of a Soviet Intellig-
ence error that must probably
be rated the worst made by any
major power in the last quarter
century. When saying farewell
to Foreign Secretary Abba Kban
the last Soviet ambassador in
Tel Aviv was justifiably in
floods of tears.
AFTER THAT, however. So-
viet policy in this region became
very much less haphazard, very
much more massively expensive
and very much more keyed to
methodical long-range plans. It

like Egypt. Fill-scale naval bas-

Matruh and al Port Sudan on
Sudan's Red Sc a coast. Port faci-
lities have also been obtained at
Aden, in Soinaliland. on the Is-
land of Mauritius and almost
certainly in India ami Ceylon.
Third, however, the Soviets
have i" en n luctanl to risk a di-
ned confrontation with the
United Ststi a and with Israel,
at least as yet. A couple of years
ago the Soviet planners un-
doubtedly hoped thai withoul di-
rect Soviet action. Gamal Abdel
Nasser's "war of attrition"
would beat the Israelis to their
knees. But that hoi>c misfired
badly. And there have been no
major new efforts, while there
have been solid indications that
the Soviets want the present un-
easy cease-fire to continue.
OVERALL, the record careful-
ly programmed building of posi-
tions of great strength, at very
great cost and at very great dis-
tances from the supposed bord-
ers of the Soviet empire. The

The question is whether the
Soviets will use their naval pow-
er to try to scoop up the prize
of prizes. It will be farily diffi-
cult to do so. unless and until
Soviet power in the Indian

the reopening of the Suez Canal.
But their present policy toward
Egypt appears to amount to sil-
ent pressure for an "interim

LOOKING down the road,
therefore, you have to ask your-
self what the results will be of
Soviet gunboat diplomacy in the
Persian Gulf. One of the wisest
Americans, former Ambassador
to Moscow Lewellyn Thompson,
has remarked wryly, "When
people begin to spend fortunes
on gunboats, there is always a
chance they are thinking about
gunboat diplomacy."
Here in the Persian Gulf, of
course, naked, unassisted gun-
boat diplomacy is not to be ex-
pected immediately. The depart-
ure of the British will throw the
little states of the gulf wide
ppen, politically, to every kind
of Soviet and satellite penetra-
tion by diplomacy, by espionage
and by subversion. That will be
the first phase, no doubt.
VET THE worth of the Mid-
dle Eastern prizes of prizes is
really beyond estimating -noth-
ing less than a power of per-
manent blackmail over both the
Western Europeans and the Jap-
anese, by control of the oil that
fuels their economics. Further-
more, most of the states of the
Persian Gulf are ideal targets
for gunboat diplomacy in the
purest early 19th-century style.
The Soviets might not risk it
if the nuclear-strategic balance
were still j-to-1 in favor of the
United States us in the til
the Cuban missile eiisis. But
with the balance 3-to-l the other
way, what do you suppose the
Soviets will do?

Generally speaking this was the

Josephus (Wars 9:10:21 tells
that in the days ot the Temple, a used to go up to a bower
and blow the trumpet to announce
that the Sabbath was coming. Ha
would do the same thing on Satur-
day night to announce that the
Sabbath had ended and that work
was now permissible.
What made the lighting of the
Sabbath candles such an import-

Some historians claim that in
olden times the coming ot sun-
set simplj ended the day's activity
and that there was very little, if
any, evening activity for the com-
mon man, On the Sabbath, how-
ever, the candles were lit before
sunset so thai the activities for
the Sabbath, e.g., the Sabbath
meal, etc., could take place. Light -

Others claim that the rabbis
. specially urged the lighting of
the candles before the Sabbath to
discourage anyone irom following
the mistaken tradition of some
Jewish sects wlu> erroneously prac-
ticed a custom of not allowing any
light* in the house on the Suhbath
due to their misinterpretation of
the rabbinical passage whose only
intent was to prevent anyone from
kindling a light on the Sabbatfi.
Lighting the candles before enables
one to have light on the-Sabha|h

Expulsion Of China Could
Set 'Dangerous Precedent'
United States is said to be ap-
plying a new form of pressure in
order to get Israel to support its
two-Chinas policy in the United
Nations. According to uncon-
firmed reports, the State De-
partment has warned that if
Taiwan (Nationalist China) is
expelled from the U.N. by a ma-
jority vote of the General As-
sembly, Israel could be the next
to go.
State Department spokesman
Charles Bray denied any knowl
edge of the reported warning,
and a spokesman at the Israeli
Embassy answered all questions
on the subject with "No com-
ment." but informed sources say
the matter has been discussed
by the two countries.
Secretary of State William P.
Rogers, interviewed on the CBS
television program "Face the
Nation" Sunday, declared that

this generation is to increase its
population from three to six
million, the former Premier told

He was given a certificate of

in guiding us in our decision to

was signed by immigrants from

In his speech to the U.N. Gen-
eral Assembly, Mr. Rogers had
said that to "open the path of
expulsion for one would be to
open it for many." but State De-
partment officials refused to be
specific; Israel, South Africa
and Portugal were mentioned
privately as countries that have
many enemies who might try to
oust them from the world body,
The question of how Israel
will vote on the China question
is expected to be the main topic
of discussion between Secretary
Rogers and Israeli Foreign Min-
ister Abba Eban when they re-
sume their talks. The subject
reportedly was discussed by As-
sistant Secretary of State Jo-
seph Sisco and Israeli Ambassa-

United HIAS Lauds
Mitchell For Otter
HIAS Service, the worldwide
Jewish migration agency, has
expressed gratification that At-
torney General John Mitchell
has agreed to use his legal au-
thority to allow Soviet Jews to
enter the United States under
section 212 (d) (5) of the Immi-
gration and Nationality Law,
generally known as parole, and
praised "Max M. Fisher, presi-
dent of the Council of Jewish
Federations and Welfare Funds.
for his effective leadership in in-
terpreting the various needs of
Soviet Jews to our government.
HIAS expressed strong dis-
agreement with the critics of
Mr Mitchell's action, who had
termed his offer to use his pa-
role power "an exercise in futile
rhetoric because it constitutes a
promise which neither has the
backing nor the permanency of
an act of Congress."
Mitchell's action will facilitate
the admission of Russian #SWJ
who receive a passport and exit
visa, HIAS noted, eliminating
many of the technicalities which
previously caused delays.
Gaynor I. Jacobson, executive
vice president of the organiza-
tion, reported that the agency
currently has several thousand
active cases on file and will pro-
seed at once to reexamine them
in the light of this new dev< lop-
mi nt "In order to achieve re-
sults, however, in this major
breakthrough, it is essential that
American relatives initiate the
process of preparing > letter of
imitation (vysov) which is nec-
essary under Soviet law, in ol-
der for the applicant to P
permission to leave," he said.
Many American .lews have
lost contact with their relatives
in the Soviet Union, Air. .lucoli-
son said, but HIAS has a world-
wide location service Which may
be able to assist them.
Persons desiring such assist-
ance should contact the local
agency, which cooperates with
the world-wide organization.

ORT Taught Industrial Skills
o Many Thousands In 91 Years
Organization for Refoabili-
jn Through Training known
ly as ORT -throughout the
^ld was founded in Czarist
sia 91 years ago. In 1880, an
aated three-fourths of the
in the world lived in the
pire of the Czars..
astern European Jewry then
in deep poverty and tack-
iness, reflecting centuries of
ecution and prejudice.
riculture, then the most im-
nt trade, was virtually a
field, as many Jews were not
' refused the right to own tend,
[were forbidden to engage in
|ing. Thus cut off from the
economic activity, restricted
aw to live in ghettos, Jews
driven into the most margi-
R occupations.
tT*s original aim was to free
Tew from restrictive medieval
by preparing him for the
trades then emerging from
industrial revolution. It was
Ant: 1 the close of World War
ne 50 years ago, however, that
became a truly International
lization. A founding confer-
in Berlin in 1921 established
t'orld ORT Union. Eastern
at the close of the great
was swept by political, eco-
and military upheavals.
Jews of Czarist Russia had
the mass movement to the
States which saw America
in Jewish population from
liousand to 34 million in less
lalf a century. In 1922, Amer-
)RT came into being to en-
^e support of American Jewry.
primary purpose of ORT
is the rebuilding of human
Ithrough education in modern
rial skills. It is the principal
for vocational training
among Jews outside North Amer-
ica and Israel
The goal of ORT Is to help peo-
ple to help themselves. It operates
in the belief that men and women
who are equipped with effective,
useful, socially necessary skills can
shape their lives in dignity, assur-
ing themselves and their families a
large measure of economic secur-
ity, and contributing productively
to their communities.
ORT has been called the "Jew-
ish Technical Assistance Program"
and the "Point Four Program of
the Jewish People." In an age of
rapid change, particularly in tech-
nology, ORT has been a major
force in teaching new skills, new
and modern ways of work to dis-
tressed and displaced Jews in many
parts of the world.
To the more than 300 thousand
persons who have been taught pro-
ductive trades by ORT in recent
years, such training has often
been an economic passport to per-
sonal progress and improved living
standards. Above all. it has meant
freedom from charity and a liveli-
hood earned in dignity.
ORT is a beneficiary agency of
the Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
tion through the United Jewish
Appeal. Both men's and women's
ORT chapters have grown rapidly
as the Jewish population has ex-
iwnded in South Florida to one

Richard Stone Praised For
Prohibiting Discrimination
The Florida Regional office of
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai Brith (ADD has praise^
Secretary of State Richard Stone
for issuing regulations barring dis-
crimination by private employment
agencies licensed by his office.
Noting that ADL had recently
called upon him to crack down on
discrimination by private employ-
ment agencies, William M. Alper,
:hairman of ADL's Florida board,
described Mr. Stone's action as "a
forthright and positive step whicH
should significantly reduce reli-
gions and racial discrimination
against persons who seek employ-
ment through private employment
agencies." j
The Anti-Defamation League be-
gan studying discrimination irt
Florida's private employment agen-
cy industry in 1967. Its surveys
have revealed a widespread will-
ingness on the part of employment
agencies to handle discriminatory
job orders from employers which!
bar employment to persons because
of their religion or race.
George Bernstein, chairman of
ADL's discrimination committee,
noted that the situation in Florida
now appears to be improving. "The
Secretary of State and his staff
have been fully cooperative and
we are now receiving some signifi-
cant signs of support from within
the employment agency industry,'*
he said. |
The ADL plans to continue its
work in Florida through the de-
velopment of a cooperative affirma-
tive action program involving the
employment agency industry and
tate and federal agencies, which
will be designed to assure equal
opportunity in employment for mi-
nority group job seekers, Mr. Bern*
i stein said.

Righteousness of Noah
That "Noah was a righteous
man; he MM tlameless in his age,"
is documented in tin' Torah.
The quality of
(rai righteous-
ness is put into
question by the
Rabbis. Some
.- iy that even in
a community of
righteous men,
Noah would hold
h s own. Others,
comparing Noah
to Abraham.
dOUbt that Noah
would be even
considered righteous.
This discussion i>f the relativity
of righteousness has implications

AZF's Mail Ballot Procedure
William V. Frankel, chairman
of the board and co-chief exec-
utive officer of Kinney Serv-
ices, Inc., and prominent phi-
lanthropic and civic leader,
has been named to receive the
1971 Appeal for Human Rela-

Goodman, national general

eousnoss was one" of a personal Hfo
.style,.,-relative t^> *be life style or
his generation. Abraham's right-
eousness was both one ol personal
life style, and of social concern.
Abraham's sense of righteousness
not only led him to "drop out" and
form a "counter culture," but also
to struggle with God about Sodom
and G'morah.
The involvement of our Jewish
vouth in the issue of Soviet Jewry,
if approached with the Rabbinic
candor of com|Kiring Noah to Abra-
ham, yields some disturbing
thoughts. The issue of Soviet JeWTJ
provides for our youth an opix>r-
tunity to express a positive Jewish
identification while at the same
time being patriotic. The issue.
v, itli its Youth Rally here in Mi-
ami, also provided the opportunity
to let oft a great deal of adolescent
protesting energy.
Following the parallel of Noah
and Al>raiiam. we applaud the
Noah-like involvement of our youth
in the Issue of Soviet Jewry, while
at the same moment considering
how our Jewish youth might be-
come more like Abraham.
Where is the struggling with the
Jewish community?
Where is questioning of the li-
naniial priorities of our Jewish
I community?
Where is the concern for better
Jewish education, or getting He-
brew as a language option in the
Dade county schools?
If we praise Abraham for chal-
lenging God on ethical issues, win
don't we encourage our Jewish
youth to question Federation, syna-
gogues and Jewish communal agen-
thical issues?
The Jewish youth participating
i:i the Soviet Jewry Rally appear
as the righteouJB of a generation of
wise rebellious Jewish youth.

Hebrew was never dead or fossilized as he claims.
rabbis from the 16th to 19th Centuries wrote thou-
fcds of books in Hebrew and most international Jewish
rrespondencp was in Hebrew. Palestine was never a
ftvince of Turkey: it was part of the vilayet of Syria

Ps not make it mandatory that a Jew pray three times
ay with a minyan. The Arabs were not a majority in
part-of Palestine that emerged as the Jewish State,
! the author states. In fact the U.N. drew the tortuous
jndary lines to insure that the Jews would be a ma-
ity in that part assigned to them and the Arabs.a ma-
hty in the area allotted to them.
The technical procedures were simple. Any resi-
dent of Israel or of the occupied areas could make
application for a relative or friend abroad to come
visit him. Unless there was any record of previous
hostility to rsrnel. the applications wore granted.
Indied. the technical difficulties and hurdles were
greater on the Jordanian'side of the bridges than on
the Israel side.
Many of the visitors were interviewed by press,
radio and television. Some wore reluctant to talk,
for obvious reasons, but the pattern of their reac-
tions was uniform. They were amazed that they
were allowed to move about freely. Many com-
mented that they had been treated civilly, almost
with respect, by Israelis whom they met, though it
was clear they were Arab visitors. They were im-
pressed with the |eaceful atmosphere in Israel, the
lack of tension. It was all so contrary to their own
previous mental Image of Israel.
Certain places soon emerged as the focus of
their attention. The beach at Netanya was perhaps
the most p ipular, and on one memorable day Moshe
i> yan went down to the beach to mingle with the
visitors and chatted freely with them.

tactic as lucral ve as it is ugly." And at long last
haps too l ite), governmi nt at

inn rig to hit at the roots of
the nefarious practice.
In recent years, some real es-
tate dealers, including occasional
unlicensed operators, have made
wild profits by telephone and mail
oli .tation of home listings, using
sugar-coated warnings that "the
neighborhood is changing, you know; and you had
better move out while you can still get a good price."
This practice of fanning panic thrives on culti-
vation of racial (ears. Sometimes the fly-by-night
dialers and even better established real estate peo-
ple actually move one or more black families into
all-white neighborhoods under cover of night. Not
long after dawn of the next day, the presence of the
newcomers is widely advertised by the shameless
operators, and frightened homeowners get hysteri-
cal and sell in a hurry. In the process, the perpe-
