day and evening sessions including
workshops devoted to the problems

and social legislation, endowment
funds, fund-raising in 1972, child
care and old age requirements,
leadership developments and the
needs of Jewish communities

Rabbi A. James Rudin, assist-

"The show was done at the ex-
ense of the Jews," he com-
John E. Fitzgerald, the Cath-
olic c-itic who specializes in the-
ology and the media, was also
opposed to the show. He charged
that it is completely inaccurate
historical'y and takes an ambig-
uous position on Jesus' divinity;
in addition, its anti-Semitism is
taken for granted, he said.
"Superstar" was defended by
Father Benjamin Horton, direc-
tor of the Catholic-Negro Amer-
ican Mission Board, and Rev.
William Jones, pastor of Beth-
any Baptist Church, Brooklyn.
Dr. Jones admitted later that

The play was also the topic of
discussion at two Miami syna-
gogues last weekend. Rabbi

continued his series on "Broad-

Secret Trial Held For Kishinev Jew
LONDON (JTA) Scviet Jew-
ish sources have reported that
Yankel (Yaacov) Khantsis, 42,
8 Kishinev chauffeur, has been
convicted in a secret trial and
sentenced to three years in a la-
bor camp for "hooliganism."
After the closed hearing, date
of which was not given, Mr.
Khantsis, father of a 20-year-old
daughter and 15-year-old son,
was sent to Omutninsk prison in
Kirov, the sources said. The
family had applied for visas to
go to Israel two years ago and
was turned down, according to
the report.
The appeal of Arkady Shpil-
berg, who was convicted in the
Riga trial, has been rejected by
the High Court, according to re-
ports reaching here. Mr. Shpil-
berg, a 33-year-old engineer
with a wife and daughter, is
serving a three-year term for al-
leged anti-Soviet activities in a
"strict regime" camp.
Weiser To Head
1972 Campaign
Irwin Weiser, a board member of
the Jewish Federation of North
Broward and a long-time worker
in its yearly campaigns, has been
selected as general campaign
chairman of the Federation's 1972
United Jewish Campaign-Israel
Emergency Fund (UJC-IEF), ac-
cording to an announcement, made
by Federation president Alvin
Gross this week.
"Mr. Weiser is unquely qualified
to lead the community campaign
this year by virtue of his years of
experience and dedication to other
community programs," Mr. Gross
"Our Jewish community has had
a dynamic expansion in the past
five years, and along with this
expansion ,we are having growing
[wins. To achieve the goals and
preserve the high standards we
have set for ourselves and our com-
munity, we must encourage the
participation of young, active and
dedicated men in Federation activi-
' ties." he continued. Mr. Weiser
represents just this part of the
i community and we are delighted
i that he and others like him are
1 stepping forward to assume this
\ital responsibility.
"At a time when Israel Is beset
with internal domestic problems
and must, at the same time, main-
tain the highest degree of vigilance
against the threat without, we
must provide the necessary social,
educational, and cultural services'
to make this community a show
place for the enrichment of Jewish
In accepting the 1972 campaign
chairmanship, Mr. Weiser, a part-
ner in the accounting firm of Weis-
er. Reibel and Schweiger, CPAs,
expressed the hope that the 1972
campaign would be the most suc-
cessful ever.
"Along with all other American
communities, we have adopted the
slogan, 'Keep The Promise,' as the
theme for this year's campaign."
Mr. Weiser said. "Primarily, this
means that we must continue our
support for the maintenance of
health and welfare programs, ab-
sorption and rehabilitation pro-
grams, and other life-saving pro-
grams in Israel, while, at the same
time, we must continue to support
the work of those national agencies
which enhance the quality of Jew-
ish life in this country.
"Because of the tremendous
growth of the Jewish population
here in North Broward. we must
,'oncentrate on recruiting more
Aorkers for the campaign so that
every family can be contacted to
share in this commitment." he
"We urge everyone who ha* an
Interest in Israel's survival and in
contributing to the growth and
levelopment of this community to
jome forward to help in this cam-
paign. The rewards are not meas-
ured in dollars and cents, but
rather in accomplishment and sense
of purpose.
News Briefs
TEL AVIV (JTA) German Culture Week opened here Sat-
urday night with a concert at the Mann Auditorium that was
marred by anti-German demonstrations outside and inside the hall.
In Jerusalem. Mayor Teddy Kollek. obviously under heavy pressure,
announced the municipality's withdrawal from cosponsorship of the
event because "it offends a part of the population." The demonstra-
tions were by Betar and members of organizations of resistance
fighters and concentration camp survivors. The concert was poorly
WASHINGTON (JTA) Last week, two 21-year-old Jewish
Defense League members walked into a Soviet Embassy reception
attended by a large number of top-ranking American officials and
hand-cuffed themselves to a balcony. As some 2,000 guests milled
around, the youths shouted "Get the Jews out of the Soviet Union."
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Geneva-based International Red
Cross has asked the Russian Red Cross to work for the release from
a Soviet prison of Jewish engineer Sylva Zalmanson Kuznotsov, who
is serving a 10-year sentence in an alleged skyjacking plot. This
was reported by the IRC in a Telegram received by Mordochai Bar-
On, president of Israel's Youth Council, which appealed to the IRC
last week.
TEL AVIV (JTA) Dr. Nahum Goldmann. president of the
World Jewish Congress, told a closed meeting of Mapam that the
influence of American Jewish leaders on the Nixon administration
was limited, and that they have little access to Nixon. According
to Dr. Goldmann, the decline in the political clout of these leaders
is that the so-called Jewish vote is of less importance in the coming
1972 elections so far as the Republican Party leaders are concerned.

Lesson Must Not Be Lost
The latest report ot emigration of Jews from the Soviet
Union is as exciting as it is encouraging. Those who are
specialists in this area believe that the year's total will
reach 10.000. a figure which well-placed Soviet sources
had predicted in private.
Significant to American Jewry in this accelerated up-
surge in recent weeks is the belief of Western diplomats
that it is the result of pressures of world public opinion.
The demonstrations by Jews throughout the world on be-
half of their brethren in Russia which have been stimulated
by organized Jewry, the use of political influence wherever
it was feasible, and the demonstrated determination of
Soviet Jews, themselves, have all added up to produce a
welcome display by Soviet leaders of the moderate image
they wish to display to the West.
There is a lesson here that must not be lost on us in
the continuing struggle for Jewish survival wherever it is
encountered. The Jews of Silence will not be the survivors.
Visit Raises An Interesting Question
Chile's President Allende is scheduled to visit Israel
some time next year, raising an interesting guestion for
American Jews who have been concerned with events in
that Latin American nation since the avowed Marxist took
office last year.
Unlike many of his counterparts throughout the world.
Allende has frequently expressed good wul toward Israel
and Jews generally and on Rosh Hashanah this year
extended his greetings to the Jewish community in Chile
and to Israel. Despite this, and not even a hint of anti-
Semitism in the Allende regime, (unlike neighboring Ar-
gentina) there has been c*n increase in emigration to Israel.
Much of this may be attributed to the fact that most Jews
in Chile belong to the middle-class, which is a favorite
target of the kind of economy Allende plans for Chile's
Promise A Real Breakthrough
Continued pressure from American Jewish organiza-
tions, aided by a bill introduced by a New York Congress-
man to provide for special visas for Soviet Jews, has led
Attorney General John Mitchell to agree to use his legal
authority to allow these victims of racial and religious
oppression to enter the United States if they so desire.
The Attorney General's promise represents a real
break-through in the campaign to get the American gov-
ernment to take positive steps on the question of Soviet
Jewry. It is a disappointment to some who did not wish
Rep. Edward Koch to withdraw his bill after the agreement
was made with Mitchell, but on balance the latest turn of
events represents a significant gain.
Mission Not Yet Complete
As the State of Israel, world Jewry and leaders of all
faiths join in saluting the Jewish National Fund (JNF) on
its 70th anniversary, it is evident that the mission of the
JNF is not yet complete.
Planting trees is but a symbol of the JNF*s primary
role the acquisition of land. Because the great ma-
jority of land in Israel belongs to either the government
or the INF, the tasks of absorbing immigrants and devel-
oping both urban and rural projects is immeasurably
We join in paying tribute to the leaden of the JNF
and their millions of
question is truly haunting at the
close of a long and arduous jour-
ney to the Middle East and Asia.
The question is whether the So-
viet Union is still likely to re-
spond to changes in the balance
of power in the old way. like
one of Pavlov's nys salivating
when the bell was rung.
It is a key question in fact,
the single key question of the
moment simply because the
Soviets are making such enor-
mous efforts to tilt the
balance of power in their facor.
These efforts are being made in
every area, notably including con-
ventional r.aval power But the
simplest measure is the Soviet
effort in the area of nuclear-
strategic power.
THE CHIEF scientist of the
Pentagon. Dr. John S. Foster.
has been under bitter attack.
Dr. Jeremy Stone and a good
many other misguided American
scientists have formed a power-
ful lobby primarily aimed, -
far as one can see. to subordinat-
ing American strategic policy.
Of this dubious scientific lobby.
John Foster has been a prime
target as a dreadful pessi-
mist, as an advocate of the
worst case," as an habitual
aggerator of this country's
It is interesting then that Dr.
Foster has now been pi
dead wrong on the optimistic
side. Last January when the So-
viets renewed active deploy)
of their giant counterforce w
ons. the SS-9s and other inter-
continental missiles. Dr. Foster
rather confidently predicted that
the maximum number of missiles
to be deployed this year might
reach 35.
By September, however, the
last American reconnaissance
satellite had found more than
95 new silos, dug to receive new
missiles. These silos are divided
into about 60 for advanced-mod-
el SS-lls (like our Minuteman.
but more powerful i; about 30
advanced-model SS-9s (capable
of taking out more targets than
the early model i; and 6 or 7
outsize silos probably due to take
a superbrute missile of an entire-
ly new type.
PERHAPS more ominously-
testing of the advanced-model
SS-9s and SS-lls, though not of
the superbrutes, began a few-
weeks ago. One of the more
curious features of this year's
silo-digging program in fact
pointing to a crash program
was the Soviet failure to pre-
test the new missiles that will
go into the new silos. But that
is ended now.
Both the advanced-model SS-9
and the advanced-model SS-11
have been recently tested in-
side the Soviet Union and at
relatively short range. Only long-
range tests will show with cer-
tainty what the detailed char-
acteristics of these new missiles
may be. But the initial results
are disturbing, to say the least.
Major improvements are indi-
cated with 5 huge warheads on
the new SS-9, for instance.
In addition, there are two oth-
er quite novel elements in the
pattern. First, new naval con-
struction and launching facilities
indicate one of two possibilities.
Either the Soviets mean to haw
more of their Yankee-class nu-
clear submarines by 1973-74 than
we have Polaris-Poseidon sub-
marines. Or they mean to have
large mimbew of very fast at-
tack submarines intended to
checkmate our submarines of the
Polaris-Poseidon class.
SECONDLY, the Soviets ran
a major series of exercises this
wmmer in the interesting field
of sataJUte i il ill II ahd/or
military deployment is owed to
the U.S. reconnaissance satellites.
Neutralizing or destroying
those satellites will be the exact
equivalent of blinding this coun-
try in a cristo. It Is Important,
then that the recent i *
which were elaborate and .!
bitious, have proved that t]J
Soviets now have thi- ipabfflj
of blinding us.
The weapon used was a n

Cloudy Future For Argentine Jewr^

.SITUATION' OF Argentine Jewry has de-

isis in the country, governed since 1966 by
Military, with limited wisdom. In March 1971,
llejandro Lanusse assumed the presidency of a
tired by continuous economic misguidance and
Sssive pauperization through inflation. Foi
kn inflation rate of 45-5CC; is anticipated, cer-
tgf the highest in Latin America, and possibly in
prld. The government has promised a prompt
fcal solution through democratic elections, but

rt of the president's advisers to implement
ral policies of a more or less socializing

tents, superimposed on the lingering recession
started soon after the Cordoba disturbances

probably the most eloquent expression of
lack of faith in the management of the Argentine
economy. *
The situation of the Jewish community must
be seen in the context of the general situation. As
reported earlier, many specifically Jewish swindles,
frauds and bankruptcies have hastened the Jewish
community toward its own financial doom. Many
honest small investors and businessmen were drag-
ged into this whirlpool and drowned innocently. The
situation testified to a relaxation of moral stand-
ards. The Jewish school system has been severely
affected and some 2.000 parents were unable to
continue their children in Jewish schools for lack of
means. The Buenos Aires Kehilla has stepped in
with grants and fellowships, but its own financial
position is precarious.
An inevitable polarization is taking place in
Argentina: the rich grow richer, since they know
how to protect their fortunes, while the poor grow
l>oorer by the effects of the inflation. The lower
middle class is threatened with extinction. The Jew-
ish hospital, the home for the aged and for orphans
and other beneficent institutions are trying desper-
ately to cope with the growing needs of the impov-
erished Jews. Both Jewish dailies have published

The pupils of this mixed class sit, eat. take
part in school activities and study their various
lessons together except in three major subjects:
Hebrew, mathematics and English. In these three,
the most difficult subjects, the class is divided ac-
coiding to ability groupings 'Hakbatzai, usually
into three groups which proceed at the pace best
suited to the ability of the pupils. Display of ability
on one level provides opportunity, at least theoreti-
cally, for immediate advancement onto the next
higher level. As might be expected, the Ashkenazi
children are the great majority in the top level, and
the Sephardlc youngsters are predominant in the
lower level.
It is too early to -ay how successful this sys-
tem will be in raising the standards of the children
from the backward communities, but at least they

children of the worthy North Tel-Aviv neighbor-

cult not to make friends under such circumstances,
especially where then' Ls goodwill on both sides.
Here and there some parents have voiced ob-

lowering of the academic standards of the school,
rather than the social integration.

The author's thesis is that an es-

cularism with man-made values
and a search by a mixture of re-
ligious and secularists to find an
inward vitality of faith.

ulist in Jewish education and contends that
no part-time education can achieve the broad pur-
poses of a Jewish school which exists to contribute
the continued existence of the Jews as an identifiable
group." This purpose lies athwart the crux of the
problem: shall Jews in Israel be Jews and the State

"The New Jews" in America are presented with
a similar problem. One of them writes, "all that we
have tried to do is to jump on the religio-social-
action bandwagon." The book reveals the abysmal
ignorance of some of the authors and their erron-
eous conceits of Judaism and its history. One of the
editors. Sleeper, contributes two essays which are
most superficial.
The second book of the Pentateuch (Exodus)
states almost at the opening, "Now there arose a
new king over Egypt who knew not Joseph." In the
books of Joshua and Ezekiel we read that, after
Joseph's death, a largo portion of the Israelites for-
got the religious tradition of the Patriarchs. The
Midrash states that those who abandoned them
adopted the motto. "Let us be Egyptians in all

the generational factor should not be overlooked, as
the Yiddish-speaking readers are slowly dying out.
The Buenos Aires kehilla budgeted for some
$300,000 for social aid. but had to spend some $800.-

their children. Unfortunately, in order to satisfy
the 12,000 requests for social aid, the kehilla had to

Regarding anti-Semitism, no substantial in-
crease could be detected lately, over its "normal"

plausible that many Jewish families will consider

Between You and Me By BORIS SM01AR
CJFWF Assembly
THU GENERAL ASSEMBLY of the Council of
Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds, which
opens in Pittsburgh this week, marks 40 years of
,i the existence of the Council.
Established by the community
Federations and Welfare Funds as
their central instrument, the Coun-
cil has grown from strength to
strength with each year of its ex-
istence. Today the Council of Jew-
ish Federations and Welfare Funds
i CJFWF i is the most important
Jewish body in this country in
guiding and advising the organized Jewish communi-
ties on community operations and on the raising of
more funds for local, national and overseas needs.
The Jewish federations are the backbone of
fund-raising for the United Jewish Appeal and
other fund-raising campaigns In the United States.
The role of the CJFWF in cooperating closely with
the United Jewish Appeal has proven of immense
importance to Israel. The Israeli government looks
up to the CJFWF as the most representative body
of American Jewry.
But the CJFWF activities are not limited to
just stimulating fund-raising in the communities.
They embrace also the work of strengthening Jew-
ish life in the United States in all its aspects in
Jewish identity, culture, social welfare needs, in-
volving Jewish college youth in community pro-
mams, directing women's divisions, recruiting and
training staff for its Institutions and national orga-
nizations, keeping the organized community in-
formed on all phases of communal life, helping them
in their public relations, and providing them with
research and studies dealing with Jewish commit-
ment, patterns of giving, use of non-sectarian serv-
ices, and developments in tax legislation affecting
Today, 40 years after the CJFWF came into
existence, it can be said that there is no field in
American Jewish life in which it is not involved.
There is no Jewish organization or institutions
large or small the problems of which do not come
to the attention of the CJFWF. It is also active in
building greater cooperation among national
agi ncies.
With the march of time and the expansion of
its services, the CJFWF has become the recognized
central body of the organized American Jewish
community not only in the United States but also in
countries overseas. Its advice is sought by the Jew-
ish communities in various countries in Europe,
Latin America and South Africa. Its guidance,
based on experience, is appreciated even in Israel.
At the helm of the CJFWF stands Max M.
Fisher the "American Jewish Leader Number
One" as president. The executive vice president
is the exceptionally able Philip Bernstein, who never
boasts of his achievements but who is considered
the spark plug, and justly so. He is always alert to
every problem faced by any of the Jewish communi-
ties, organizations or institutions, and is activel>
helpful in finding the proper solution.
The Jewish federations come to the CJFWF
Q neral Assembly this year with the unprecedented
record of raising a total of $370 million for a broad
rangi- of human Jewish needs on local and national
levels as well as for human needs in Israel and
other overseas lands in 1971. This is the highest
sum ever raised for Jewish philanthropic purposes
in this country in one year.
