Rumors were current here and
in the Middle East that Kissinger,
or possibly Sisco, would go to
Damascus by mid-February' to
help induce Syria to enter talks
for disengagement of forces on
the Syrian front.
"NO TRIPS are planned, but
I never rule out anything," U.S.

George Vest said.

sands of Jewish elderly live under
conditions of paralyzing terror in
the Coney Island section of Brook
lyn. tJhjB' Metropolitan Coordinat
ing Council on Jewish Poverty re
ported this week. Jerome M
Becker, president, said the find
ing was based on in-depth inter
views with scores of Coney Is
land communal leaders.
The study, made possible by a
grant from the city's Human Re-
sources Administration, was the
first to present ddtailad data from
the area, which is heavily popu-
lated by elderly impoverished
Jews, Becker said.
DETAILED questionnaires, list-1
ing 32 community problem areas. |
were filled out by rabbis and |
presidents of religious institu- i
tions, key personnel of Jewish |
social service organizations, presi- j
dents of Jewish social and fra-
ternal organizations, directors of
Coney Island-based governmental
agencies, and Jewish members of
the Coney Island Community As-
Rabbi Jack Cohen, executive di-
rector of the coordinating coun-
cil, said the goal of the study
was "to identify the major con-
cerns of the Jewish community.
as well as to ascertain the extent
of both private and governmental
resources currently available to
alleviate poverty conditions.''
He said fear of crime was rated
the number one problem. Drug
addiction was rated second and
the deterioration of the neighbor
hood was listed third. The over-
riding concern of elderly resi-
dents for physical security was
manifested in such responses as
"living in Coney Island is like liv-
ing in a jungle;'' "people arc
afraid to go out at night" and
"many more muggings are tak-
ing place during the day." Many
The Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations,
recognizing the staggering dimensions of human need in Israel,
has resolved:
That the Israel Emergency Fund of the United Jewish Appeal is the
instrument through which the American Jewish community is best able
to maintain humanitarian programs in Israel;
That every American Jewish organization must impress upon its
membersh.p the need for total participation and support in this
That every member of its constituent organizations must make an
immediate gift to the Israel Emergency Fund of the United Jewish
Appeal through the Jewish federation or welfare fund in his
home community.
respondents said proliferation of
teen-age gangs was a growing
problem. Most respondents said
intensified police protection was
a primary need.....i
ALL VITAL services received
low ratings in the study. Cultural
programs for the elderly rated
32nd and last. Problems affecting
youth were ranked as more im-
portant than those affecting the
aged. Lack of Jewish identity
among young Coney Island Jews
was cited as the major communal
problem by synagogue officials.
Lecture Series
At Emanu-El
Temple Emanu-El announces a
new adult lecture course, "Where
Judaism Differed," based on the
celebrated book of the same name
by Rabbi Abba Hillel Silver.
The dynamic and popular Oscar
Schmerler of Broward Community
College will explore the differ-
ences between Judaism and other
religions, tracing these differences
from pre-Christian times to the
present day.
This 10-week Spring series is
open to the entire community and
.rill begin at the temple Wednes
Jay. March 6. at 8 p.m. For regis-
tration or information call the tern- '
le office.
Decline of Jewish religious in-
stitutions in the area was cited
as the primary concern of direc-
tors of Jewish social service agen-
. cies. Government officials listed
low income and unemployment,
fear of crime, dirty streets and
sidewalks, lack of decent shop-
ping and lack of escort services.
These were also cited as key
community problems by Jewish
board members of the Coney Is-
land Community Associates.
Residents of the Hi-Rise Co-Op
area, site of predominantly Jew-
ish occupied middle-income apart-
ment complexes, called lack of
Jewish identity the major com-
munal problem. Residents also
listed lack of recreation for teen-
agers, drug addiction, fear of
crime, the need for escort and
legal services, and the poor repu-
tation of the neighborhood.
RESPONSES BY elderly poor
Jews indicated that their most
pressing problems included fear
of crime, inadequate shopping fa-
cilities, low income and drug ad-
diction. Becker said it was of
"vital significance" that "lack of
a Jewish voice in government"
was listed as tenth in importance,
"ranking far above such services
as on-the-job training, medical
services and counseling." He said
that disclosure underscored "the
pressing need for the continued
growth and development of the
council's coordinated programs of
meeting the communal needs of
New York City's Jewish poor
wherever they are."

^Protocols' and the Edsel
The "Protocols of the Dders of Zion" is an Edsel in the
garage of anti-Semitism.
One of the most scurrilous pieces of religious bigotry
ever produced, the credit for its manufacture fittingly goes
to the Russians, who are distinguished engineers in this
very ancient field.
But one would hardly have expected to see it driven
out into the light of day once more. Not even the skilled
Soviets would have the temerity to do that.
But Saudi Arabia's King Faisal did, when he dis-
tributed this piece of junk as a gift to the French jour-
nalists accompanying Foreign Minister Michel Jobert to
Jidda to talk about the oil rewards France would get for
being pro-Arab.

Measure of Arab Astuteness
We have no illusions about the disappearance of anti-
Semitism. But one thing is true, and that is that since the
Hitler era, it has been clear that anti-Semitism is a politi-
cal and even social liability.
What is also true is that King Fciscl has no more re-
spect for Christians and Christianity than he has for Jews
and Judaism. His distribution of the "Protocols" was de-
signed to pander to Christian prejudices toward Jews, not
to show his admiration for one at the expense of the
That Faisal demonstrates he does not understand what
has occurred in the garage cf hate-mongering is proof that
the Arabs are generally less astute than the October war
has given us fear to believe therr. to be.
More Genocide Insecticide
Once again, the United States is moving to close out
this nation's participation in the International Treaty
Against Genocide. This is ironic because of the leading
role we played in steering the treaty through the United
Nations en Dec. 8, 1948.
The Genocide Convention emerged out of the trials of
the major Nazi war criminals at Nuremberg. In its charter,
the UN renewedjhe affirmation of basic human rights and
the recognition of the value of human life.
Consequently, on Dec 11, 1946, after confimrnq Reso-
lution No. 95 J) on the principles of international law in-
troduced at Nuremberg, the General Assembly adopted
Resolution No. 96 ll) condemning genocide as an inter-
national crime.
It was this resolution that the U.S. helped steer through
the UN machinery exactly two years later.
Yet, almost from the start, our own nation looked upon
the Genocide Convention as a threat to American sover-
eignty. This position was most clearly enunciated in the
controversial Bricker Amendment.
Today, more than a quarter of a century later, the
United States still regards signing a statement of aqre?-
ment that genocide is a crime as a poison to our basic
American freedoms.
No wonder that we aTe sometimes forced to regard our
role as leader of the free world in slightly cynical terms.

Not now. Sure there's a cease fire on Israel's borders and things are relatively
quiet on the battlefront. And maybe you feel that you've made your contribution:
attended a meeting, wrote out a check. Now you're sitting back feeling satisfied
and just a little complacent.
You couldn't be more wrong.
Another battle is still raging in Israel: the battle against human need.
If you know any history and read the papers, you know what war
can do to a countrydisruption, human distress, suffering. With
compassion, care and massive funds we can begin to repair
some of the damage. And we can take care of new immi-
grants who are still coming.
With problems like these, this is no time to sit back.
Doing your share this year means doing much
more than you've ever done. You can't stop now.
Our battle has barely begun.

Conservatives Challenge Other
Branches to Reshape Education
PALM BEACH The head of
Conservative Judaism this week
called on the other two branches
of the Jewish faithOrthodox and
Reformto enter into "a lively
competition" with the Conserva-
tive movement aimed at reshaping
Jewish education in order to bring
American Jewish life more fully
under the influence of "authentic
Jewish values and teachings."'
Dr. Gerson D. Cohen, chancellor
of the Jewish Theological Eem-
jnary of Americawhich is the
academic and spiritual center of
Conservative Judaism and whose
head is acknowledged as the lead-
er of the more than 1 million mem-
ber Conservative movementtold
more than 250 nationally promi-
nent Jewish leaders that he was
personally "driven by the vision
or a better educated American
Jew deeply committed to the
ethical moial values of Judaism."
"NOTHING drives me more
than the vision of training Jewish
scholars, rabbis, educators and
laity better informed, better equip-
ped and more detply committed to
shaping modern life by canons of
authentic Judaism under yard-
stick- of excellence," Dr. Cohen
"I am consumed." he continued,
"by the desire to draft new cur-
ricula, new forms of Jewish educa-
tion, new theological formulations
of the historic covenant which has-
launched our people in its history
and sustained it to this day.
"That is why 1 have elected to
devote my energies to what 1 con-
So/ Linowiti Rabbi Cohen
sider the most vital task in Amer-
ican Jewish life todaythe reshap-
ing of Jewish education so as to
mold Jewish character by the
canons of Jewish religious tradi-
tion within the framewoik of a
free, strong, and highly motivated
American diaspora." ,
DR. COHEN, who was joined in
addressUM the Jewish leaders by
Sol M. Linowitz. former U.S. Am-
bassador to the Organization of
American States, said that while
he believed in "the theological and
ritual posture" of Conservative
Judaism. "I am in the first in-
stance a Jew. an American Jew.
and if I can stimulate and moti-
vate" the other branches of Juda-
ism to take the same road I am
taking, or even to go along com-
peting lines, the Jewish people as
a whole will be richer and
In making his bid to the other
religious gioups to join in a re-
vamping of American Jewish life.
Dr. Cohen made clear his own
"strong belief that American Jew-
ish community life should continue
to be 'pluralist and voluntarist,"
and that "no one ideology or seg-
ment of the community is entitled
either to hegemony or exclusive
supDort at the expense of the
IN THIS connection, he lauded
all the religious groups "for the
programs anj progiess" they have
already achieved, asserting that.
those programs that have civen
ihe strongest sense of Jewish
identity and Jewish collective pur-
pose have emanated predominant-
1\ from the religious or so-called
denomination*] sectors of the
American Jewish Community.
"Indeed, the most intensive Jew-
ish educational programs on every
level have been sponsored and
conducted by religious organiza
iions. Orthodox. Conservative and
Reform. It could hardly have been
otherwise, for on tne profoundest
level Jewish identity is a historic
ethnic religious identity"
Dr. Cohen and Linowitz spoke
in the Breakers Hotel here at the
opening of the Seminary's 1974
national fund appeal. The drive
seeks over S6,500,000 to under-
write the Seminary's training of

IN A forceful keynote speech,
Servan-Schreiber called for a
united stand in defense of Israel
against Arab blackmail. He d>-
clared: "We are here to assert
our solidarity with the people of
Israel at a time of grave danger.
. This demonstration in Berlin
takes place at a permanently
threatened outpost of western
civilization. It addresses itself to
a crisis faced by another perma-
nently threatened outpost of
western civilization. Both Berlin
and Jerusalem are engulfed by a
sea of seemingly relentless hos-
tility and both are equally vul-
nerable .
"From the modern Wailing Wall
of Berlin to the ancient Wailing
Wall of Jerusalem must go forth
a call for vigilance, a call which
draws its inspiration from a
shameful past, a vacillating pres-
ent, a hopeful future."
that Premier Golda Meir and
President Anwar Sadat had shown I
the way toward peace. He ex-
pressed hope that Syria would
soon moi'e in the same direction,
beginning with the application of
the Gencvi Convention on prison-
ers of war. But for humanitv.
more was at stake, Servan-
Schreiber said.
"The question is whether a
handful of Arab leaders, spurred
on by fanatics from the inside
and by Russian military hawks
from the outside, will be allowed
to abuse their dominant oil posi-
tion so as to destroy the econo
mies of the industrialized world
and plunge into even deeper mis-
ery the impoverished areas of the
Third World."
Continuing. Servan Schrciber
declared: "If Israel is forced by
pressure from friend and foe to
accept the strai^htjacket that its
adversaries would place upon it,
then proof will have been shown
that aggression and blackmail
pay, and that they can constantly
be used with impunity as tools of
international policy."
AT A lunch here, Mayor
Schuetz, an outspoken friend of
Israel, said it gave him "extra-
ordinary pleasure to welcome the
conference delegates, especially
those from Israel." He said Ber-
lin and Israel had many things
in common: love of freedom, de-
mocracy, security, peace. Schuetz,
who will be visiting Israel, said
these were the reasons why Ber-
lin had been chosen for the con-
ference of European parliamen-
Yafeh declared that while it
was difficult to assess the d'rect
political influence of the confer-
ence, "what is important is the
fact that the conference is taking
place, that Europeans are stand-
ing up together in this impres-
sive manner in support of Israel.
The conference will strengthen
each delegation in putting pres-
sure on its own government.
Thre has been no dispute over
attitudes towards Israel."
YAFEH SAID he had been
overwhelmed by the reception.
He recalled that in 1067 people
thought Israel was on the verge
of elimination, but no one had
lifted a finger to help. He praised
the European Israeli friendship
group for its work, adding that he
hoped now that Israel was per-
haps on the way toward peace. It
was ready to withdraw its troops
and live peacefully with its neigh-
He expressed great concern at
the fate of Israeli POWs in Syrian
hands. As far as the conference
was concerned, Yafeh said it was
important for Israel to know that
it was not being left alone be-
cause of blackmail. The parlia-
mentarians unanimously adopted
a resolution expressing "support
and encouragement" to Israel.

Instead of a recipe this week. I've decided to fill you in on
"everything you've always wanted to know about chicken, but. ."
Chicken is a great source of high quality protein, every bit
as good as red meat. It comes fresh, chilled or frozen: whole or
cut up into halves, quarters or serving pieces The age of the bird
determines its tenderness and how it should be cooked.
Some of the different types, of chicken commonly a\ailablo
Roasting Chickens weight 4 to 6 pounds. They are meaty
and tender, fine for oven baking, roasting or rotisserie cooking.
They can also be cut up for stewing, frying or broiling.
Broilers-Fryers weight 2 to 4 pounds. They can be fried,
broiled, roasted or braised, depending on one's preference.
Hens Fowls or Stewing Chickens mature, less tender
chickens, weighing from 4 to 7 pounds. They are mostly used for
cooking soup, fricassee or stew: their meat is also used in salads,
creamed dishes and casseroles.
Capons noted for their tenderness and generous amount
of whit? meat. They weieh between 5 and 8 pounds and are
mostly roasted. If desired, they may be stuffed with your favorite

Thus ran paragraph seven of a
WCC statement on the Middle
East, adopted Aug. 20. 1969,
which has a good deal to say
about the "injustice"' perpetrated
on the Arab refugees, less about
the Jews, and mentioning the
State of Israel but once in a
clearly negative context.
BY Aftu large it was about as
"fair" a pronouncement as can
be expected of a loose roof-or-
ganization of some 260 churches,
which include Russian Orthodoxy,
a goodiy number of Arab bishops
and Americans with large mis
sions in Lebanon and Egypt, and
obviouslv. not a single Jew.
Uraeli erities were not slow in
pointing out that the WCC has

What paragraph seven thu*
boiled down to. for any Jewish

"partisan" bias the statement pur
ported to warn against, hiding a
politico theological rejection of
Zionism under the cloak of "even

TO AVOID the impression that
the issue was a foregone conclu
sion the WCC decided to hold an
international consultation on "bib
lical interpretation and its bear
ing on Christian attitudes regard
ing the situation in the Middle
East." This is now taking place
in Geneva.
Preparatory to this meeting
of minds a confidential question
naire was sent out to member
churches and .thor Christian
groups containing such leading
questions as:

Since the entire complex of
questions and problems raised by
the WCC dealt prominently with
Jews. Judaism and the State of
Israel, a group of Christians in
Israel suggested to Or. Lukas
Vicher. chairman of the con-
sultation, that he come to Jeru-
salem to meet some Jewish
scholars and Arab Christians
for a free (and non-commit-
tal) exchange of views.
TO WASTE no time on pre-
liminaries or generalities, three
session* were arranged, with
gY**ur.s of fhfee to five
scholars each, centered on these
key Issues: the relationship be-
tween the Old Testament ("The
Hebrew Bible." as Jews refer to
it) and the New Testament, the
promise of the land, and justice.
A welcome byproduct of these
informal meetings was an im-
promptu dialogue between Is-
raeli professors and Arab Chris-
tian clergymen with the Swiss
guest aglow with delight over the
ecumenical catalysis which his
presence had produced.

Sextuplets Recall Fertility
Today and Biblical Yesterday
London Chronicle Syndicate
The incredible feat of bringing
six children into the world at
one birth was a feature which.
according to the Sages, charac-
terised the Hebrew women in
ancient Egypt.
This supposition was considered
necessary to explain the phenom-
enal growth of the Hebrew popu-
lation from a mere handful of
Jacob's descendants to the grand
total of 600.000 in the course of
a few hundred vears.
AN INTERESTING factor con-
tributing to this fecundity was a
special diet of small Ash, itself
obtained in miraculous fashion,
and given to husband- by their
Hebrew wives before cohabitation.
It has been left to modern
times to witness a revival of this
proverbial Egyptian fecundity in
the >hape of an Increasing num-
ber of multiple birth-, shattering
what, until now. was an accepted
law in eugenics known as II
law of multiple births.
According to 'his, twins occur
in approximately every 85 births
triplets occur once in every 7,225
births, and so on. giving the
chances of sextuplets as one in
thousands of millions.
THIS IS largely though in-
comprehensibly the result of
the administration of female sex
hormones. This advance in the
field of medicine will undoubt-

Galine Panov has charged that
Soviet officials are trying to

The couple first applied for
permission to emigrate to Israel
two years ago. Both were dis-
missed from the Kirov Bailet an '.
barred from performing. Late

a hunger strike to dramatize the
counle's plight.
Two months after all the Torah
trolls at the Leningrad Synagogu?
had been destroyed, a rabbi from
Reseda. Calif., smuggled a new
Torah to the Soviet temple in t'me
for the holiday of Simchat Torah.
The holiday has become a na
tional celebration for Soviet Jews
in recent years.
RABBI ELLIS Sultanik told a
Greater Los Angeles press confer-
ence that he had learned of the
Leningrad tragedy only three
weeks ago and decided to bring a
new Torah to the synagogue in
time to celebrate the holiday.
"It wasn't easy to devise a way
get the holy scroll past the So
victs," Sultanik explained. "Bin
Individuals in my congregation ot-
fered to supply the Torah. and
people in the community were ex-
cited by a desire to do it. we
had to do it.''
Sultanik is the rabbi at Temple
Beth Ami Reseda.
Sultanik. who would not reveal
the exact means by which the
Torah was brought in through
customs, described his feeling after
learning of the missing Torahs in
"IT WAS gnawing at me. I
couldn't understand "lOW the Len-
ingrad Jewish community would
celebrate Simchat Torah without
a Torah. I was compelled to do
something about ft, and I'm happy
that I did.
"I'll never forget the faces of
the people in the synagogue when
they saw the Torah." Sultanik con-
tinued. "It was as if a precious

The marriage of Menachem

The Agony of Franz Kafka is All Jewry's
repeated pleas that he marry her,
and he used it to fend off the
flsas in the same way that he
u?ed his shuttered nerves, his
need as a writer for isolation and
finally his tuberculosis to avoid
marriage with Felice.

But as critic Willy Haas has
pointed out, Kafka's Jewish pre-

boundless "confidence in the fu-

integral part of his tortured life
and of his breathtaking art.
Schocken's latest "Letters to

S30 billion. This is a sum sufficient to enable
them to acquire controlling interest in numerous

This would mean that they wPl emerge as a

CWn Readied for Screen
I l/V /
AIENAHLM GOLAN, co-author, producer and direc-
. >r of "Kazablan." had come to Los Angeles fot
the srorld premiere of the English-language version of
the Israeli screen musical.
He stays on here to make a picture in Hollywood
and prepare for filmization in Rumania and Israel of
the often announced production of Isaac Bashevis
Singer's "The Magician of Lublin." his pet project for
which Wolf Mankowitr originally wrote the screenplay
when the late Laurence Harvey planned the film in
Ea-tern Europe.
GOLAN, WITH whom Harvey worked on "Escape
to the Sun" (still generally unreleased in the U.S,).
now has purchased all the rights for The Magician of
Lublin," a strangely cabalistic tale of a man whottries
to find God in the heavens by building himself some
i i : wings vainly trying to start to fly.
Golan is very excited about the writings of the
Yi ;.iish poet. Singer whom he believes to be the great-
e-t novelist alive today in any language.
THE ESSENCE of Singer's philosophy, so elo-
juer.tly expressed in "The Magician." is his constant
tearcfa for the existence of God. Golan is emotionally
involved in the question about the validity of any

Singer summarizes in "The Magician" that if there

'pins is ihe story of a group of gallant youni
from the Cincinnati Jewish Community Center
who together with one friend from the Brighten
Beach (N.Y.I YMHA had the intestinal fortitude to
visit Israel recently for a combined basketball com-
petition and tour of the country.
WOULD YOU believe that ceasefire upheavals
and the bombing of the plane in Rome caused all
the other boys to cancel out, including a Canadian
groun. leaving the Cincinnati .quad as the only U.S.
PERHAPS ONE of th" reasons the Cincinnati
Kruad refused to buckle dew 'he scares which
frightened off th ether American Jewish contingent
is due to their indemitible leader. Rod McKinley.
physical education director at the Cincinnati Com-
munitv Jewish Center.
Rod. wha is-a.DWtioiM Jew. hi a great-grand-
nephew of President William McKinley.
AT THAT time, the Cincinnati five la competi-
t!on against several South American hoop squads
Pan American title. My most vivid recollec-
tion of McKinley. at that time, was when he ap-
proached me in the temple at the Friday night serv-
ed asked. "Mr. Cohen, is it okay if I smack
one of these fresh young kids who is interrupting
the decorum in the rear of the temple "'
MAYBE I'M sorry now I didn't give him permis-
sion to belt the kid. for it turned out that the young
rcaa. who was disturbing the other boys at the serv-
i.'. was a great young swimmer by the name of
Mark Spitz. \
It's the sanv Mark Spitz who. after the massicre
at Munich, on a stopover in London, instead of de-
ploring what had transpired in Munich, spoke to
reporters about the brilliant financial future that
awaited him in the states.
