leadership Conference
Itroy, who is chairman of
ft,C Board and the District
(umbia's delegate to the
lit Kepresentatives, and
fcseph Lowery, president of
JLC, had both met with
in Beirut last month and
^d1 hat they would receive
irafat a promise that the
PLO will cease its terrorist ac-
FAUNTROYS announcement
followed a six-point message to
the SCLC from Arafat indicating
that the PLO would observe a
ceasefire in south Lebanon but
would engage in renewed hos-
tilities against Israel.
The PLO statement was issued
after Rev. Jesse Jackson left
Beirut after an 11-day five-nation
Mideast tour which included
Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Syria and
Lebanon. Before leaving Beirut,
Jackson, who is the head of Oper-
ation PUSH, claimed that the
PLO had "seized the initiative"
by declaring a ceasefire in south
The declaration, however,
made no mention of ending
terrorist activity against Israel.
Fauntroy said Arafat's cease-
fire declaration was inadequate
and that it does not guarantee an
end to terrorism in Israel or on
the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
THE BLACK leader said on a
local radio interview that "I
intend to withhold any invitation
to Mr. Arafat until there is some
clear indication that he is pre-
pared to at least respond to our
initial request to a moratorium on
violence everywhere, including
inside the nation of Israel."
Fauntroy also said the SCLC
would not launch its education
forums on the Mideast until "we
get a clearer understanding of
what their (PLO) intentions are
in respect to the moratorium."
Regarding the Lebanon cease-
fire, he added, "That for me is not
adequate. It has to be a unilateral
and across-the-board moratorium
including acts of violence inside
Israel." There was no immediate
comment from Lowery.
LAST FRIDAY, the State
Department expressed skep-
ticism over the Lebanon ceasefire
which it termed "shaky" but
"holding." The ceasefire was, in
fact, in effect before Arafat's
message to Fauntroy saying the
PLO would observe it. Faunt-
roy's statement followed an
exchange of cables between the
SCLC in Atlanta and Arafat.
Fauntroy considered Arafat's
first message inadequate and
cabled for "clarification." The

Fighting Prejudice in U.S.
Termed an'Unfinished Task'
Egypt Determined to Open
>/ Aviv Embassy Next Febuary
JERUSALEM (JTA) Egypt is determined to
its Embassy in Tel Aviv February 26, 1980 even if
(is no progress in the autonomy talks, Israel Radio
ed from Paris, quoting Egypt's Minister of State for
rn Affairs, Butros Ghali.
Ihali told Israel Radio that Egypt aspired to
^then the normalization process with Israel,
/er, he added, that if the negotiations fail, and Israel
[ake no concessions until April, 1980, the Egyptian
n Ministry would recommend the convening of an
itional convention under the auspices of the United
is, with the participation of both the United States

Ministry was already working on this con-

"Fighting prejudice against
minorities is an unfinished task
of the National Conference of
Christians and Jews," said NCCJ
senior vice president Donald W.
McKvoy, when he spoke at the
first Cody Fowler Lecture, held
at Beth Israel Synagogue on Oct.
McEvoy reported on a Lou
Harris poll of "Current American
Attitudes Towards Blacks,
Hispanics. Women, Jews and
Catholics," which was a 50th
anniversary project of the NCCJ.
The results were, according to
McEvoy. good news and bad
news all the way. "The good news
is that the intensity of prejudice
in the U.S. seems to be drop-
ping, but the bad news is
that significant numbers of
Americans still hold prejudices,
still believe some of the old
negative stereotypes about
minorities, or are so ignorant
about past abuses that fewer
people would come to the aid of
attacked groups today than in
earlier years."
On the "good" side, the recent
poll showed strongly that most
Americans give intellectual
assent to the concept of full
equality and seem ready to move
forward in concrete ways to
achieve this. Despite much media
publicity, people accept actions
for school desegregation, equal
opportunity in the job market,
integrated housing and other
economic problems of minorities
and women, he said.
McEvoy felt, therefore, that
the time is ripe for private and

that speaking about
problems in Russia is
quite all right. It is speaking
about others or speaking as
though you represented others
that gets you into difficulty.
Consequently, in Russia "we
spoke only about ourselves, but
we really meant many other
people, too," Cherf related.
HIS BEING in Washington
was a direct result of his an-
swering an ad in New Russian
Word, a Russian language news-
paper now being published in
New York. The advertisement
asked for people willing to
discuss problems faced in Russia.
He responded, and then for ova-
six months he heard nothing. He
then was contacted but was
asked if he would cover a very
broad subject. Said Cherf, "They
wanted me to do entirely too
much work and research in
developing such a big topic. I
told them I would be willing to
tell about my own experience but
that was all. Well, the next thing
I knew, they sent me a ticket to
Gerald Cherf
Washington to testify at the
Sakharov Hearings."
The International Sakharov
Hearings are held every two
years. The first conference was in
Denmark in 1975, in 1977 they
were held in Rome, this year the
United States and in 1981 they
will be held in London. These
hearings are held to discuss
"Human Rights in the Soviet
Union." In opening remarks, it
was stated that these public
hearings are designed "to defend,
not to accuse. Accusation and
punishment are not part of the
"While it is common for
emigrants to cast disfavor on the
country they have abandoned,
there is now sufficient evidence to
state that these proceedings are
part of the international
movement for the defense of
human rights in the USSR," said
Valery Chalidze, editor of "A
Workers' Movement in the
USSR?" in introductory remarks

Friday. October ||t |
A Lesson for SCLC
The decision of the Southern Christian Leader-
ship Conference to withdrew its invitation to
Palestine Liberation Organization Chief Yasir Arafat
to come to the United States tells two stories.
The less important one is that, judging from the
general press, one would hardly know that the in-
vitation has been withdrawn. After all, there is no
blood in that, no divisiveness in that, no scare head-
lines an editor can plaster across his front page in
that as he did when SCLC spokesmen were
galavanting all over Araby last month and singing
with Arafat, "We shall overcome."
The second story is that it ought to be a lesson
in politics for the SCLC. There are no quick solutions
to the Middle East dilemma, as surely the Rev. Jease
Jackson, among other American Black leaders, have
come to believe. Nor is the dilemma, as they have
come to believe, purely the result of "Israeli intran-
sigence," a phrase Araby throws around with the
glib ease it reserves for hiking the price on a barrel of
Now that Jackson et al. recognize that not their
best intentions in the world will dissuade Yasir
Arafat from bis appointed rounds of terror against
Israel, that not their best rendition of "We shall
overcome" can in fact overcome the PLO's funda-
mental scheme for the Jewish -State, perhaps the
tensions that SCLC raised in the Black and Jewish
communities of the country can be resolved.
We say perhaps because it is a certainty that
once angry voices, once angry charges are leveled
against Jews anywhere, it is difficult to still them.
Zionist Leadership Conference
The roster of speakers due to appear at the
International Leadership Conference sponsored by
the Zionist Organization of America on Miami Beach
Oct. 24 to 28 is as brilliant as it can be. From Israel
Ambassador to the United States Ephraim Evron to
former NATO Chief Gen. Alexander Haig to U.S.
Sen. Daniel P. Moynihan (D., N.Y.) to Theodore R.
Mann, chairman of the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organizations, and many
more, it is a distinguished panoply of talent that will
address the deliberations of the conference.
A distinctive feature of the conference is that it
is hemispheric; representatives of Zionist
organizations in Canada and Latin America will
participate, along with their counterparts in the
United States.
The conference comes at a most difficult, indeed
painful, time in the history of the State of Israel and
world Jewry at large. And so the deliberations here
will be geared to an examination of the parallel issues
involving the troubled Jewish condition.
From our own point of view, we see the choice of
South Florida for the site of the conference as further
acknowledgement of our community's pivotal role,
geographically and culturally, in the affairs of
Western Hemisphere Jewry.
That Time for Nobel noughts
TIME AND again. I have
written about the Nobel Prize aa
political instrument too often
unrelated to the are* of excellence

which we judge a great novelist
or poet, an innovative acienttat or
earth shaking humanist too
easily and too frequently take
second place to the Nobel
Academy's favorite political
cause of the year.
Consider, aay, Jorge Luis
Borgea for the Academy'a prize
in literature? That might well
depend on whether or not the
Academy's cozying up to Argen-
tina these daya. The reasoning
might go something like this:

NEW YORK Jews and
Blacks lived peacefully together
in Harlem during the first two
decades of the twentieth century,
with the Jewish population
leaving largely for reasons of
upward mobility, says Dr.
Jeffrey Gurock, professor of
Jewish history at Yeshiva
University's Bernard Revel
Graduate School in his newly
released book, When Harlem
Was Jewish 1870-1930, published
by Columbia University Press.
"The first large incursion of
Blacks into Harlem, then a
predominently Jewish neigh-
borhood, did not precipitate a
mass exodus of Jews. Although
some opposed Black settlement,
more stayed, and lived har-
moniously with and among
Blacks until new economic op-
portunities and better built
neighborhoods beckoned in the
1920s. Indeed, Jews were among
the last whites to leave what was
to become the renowned Black
ghetto," Dr. Gurock aay a.
THE BOOK, which "grants
long overdue recognition to a
once important and until now
uncelebrated American Jewish
community," offers many
descriptions of heretofore
unknown or unrecognized events,
issues, and presonalitiea.
It also seeks to extend the
knowledge of issues such as
urban growth and decay, im-
migrant settlements and
relocations and internal Jewish
communal organization and
conflict. For Dr. Gurock, it ia on
this comparative and analytical
level. that there is most to be
Dr. Gurock believes that
previous historians of mid-
nineteenth century German-
American Jewish life centered
either on "the changing com-
munal structure of early Atlantic
coast Jewish centers under the
impact of large-scale Central
European migration, or upon the
trials and travels of the im-
migrant peddler the Jewish
component in America's manifest
destiny story who plies his
wares in the Western wilderness
and who ultimately succeeds in
establishing focuses of Jewish
economic and religious life in
most major entrepot cities on the
He explains that "historians
recognize the absence of sub-
stantial communications between
the older Eastern centers and the
new pioneer communities of the
West, and have examined the
valiant attempts at national
unification initiated by several
groups of religious leaders within
a dispersed American Jewry. Yet
no one has analyzed the economic
life and community-building
activities to those other German
Jews who were neither really part

Kharkov construction engineer
on compulsory work on
collective farms." (Cherf testified
in Russian which was simul-
taneously translated into
Knglish.) Cherf told that after
working nine years at a 'Lacquer
F'aint" plant as a construction
engineer and a member of the
trade union, he was ordered to
report back to work early from
vacation so that he could help
pick tomatoes at a collective
farm. For this he would be paid
the same wages he was presently
earning. A bus was to pick him
up every morning at the trade
union building and to return him
there at night. Cherf refused to
do this.
Ho went to various offices and
explained that he was not suited
to pick tomatoes. "I am by pro-
fession an engineer, a chemist
and technician specializing in
lacquers, colors and lacquer
"I explained that I had not
applied for work on a collective
farm, but had joined the trade
union to work as a construction
engineer and produce decorative
equipment which is in great
demand by very many industrial
agricultural enterprises."
Cherf went on to explain that
his wages were cut by one-fourth,
but his work responsibilities
remained the same. He appealed
this decision to the trade union's
arbitration commission "... as
being groundless and in violation
of the labor laws of the USSR and
of the Ukrainian SSR according
to which the administration for
an enterprise does not have the
right to transfer one of its em.-,
ployees to a jdb that is not1
stipulated in the contract, and
without his agreement."
CONTINUING his story,
Cherf related the various com-
mittees and meetings he went
through in an attempt to retain
his pay and his job and not go to
pick tomatoes. The order had
come down that so many workers
were to be assigned to help
harvest the crop, and it wafc
somebody's responsibility to get
the workers there..
At one point in this saga, Cherf
was told. "Wedo not understand
one thing. How can a person who
was born in the Soviet age, who
finished a Soviet school, who
works as a manager in a Soviet
enterprise, who receives a first-
rate apartment from the Soviet
government, and who has
finished a Soviet institution of
higher learning, and so forth, fall
to such depths?"
Cherf concluded his testimony
by relating the final judgment
against him. "At the end, the
meeting, which had lasted past
midnight, resolved: To declare a
citizens' boycott of me in the
trade union organization, so that
I would completely come to feel
profoundly the strength of Soviet
collectivism and of universal
socialist solidarity.' '
Cherf worked under these con-
ditions for several weeks and
then moved his family to another
city and began a new job. There
is no reference system in tUe

Hip, hip, hooray for Betty Wootf, who celebrated her 75th
birthday at an open house given in her honor by her son and
daughter-in-law, Dr. Walter and Millie Woolf. The lovely hors
d'oeuvres and dessert party was given on Sunday, Oct. 14, at
Millie and Walter's home on Davis Islands. In town for the big
affair were some of Betty's family, including her brother and
sister-in-law San and Ethel Dinerman from Delray Beach,
sister-in-law Rath Dinerman from Marblehead, Mass., and
grandchildren Andrea and Eric Woolf from Gainesville, where
they both attend the University of Florida.
Betty, who resides at the Jewish Towers, has been a
volunteer with Chai Dial-a-bus since it began. Many of her
friends from Dial-a-bus, from the Jewish Towers, and from the
Presbyterian Village, where she used to live, celebrated with
Betty on the 14th. Our love and many more happy and healthy
years on this auspicious occasion, Betty!

Regarding Blacks, HispanicgJ

did not think problems existed
that minority members faced
against every day. But whei

agreed the situations involved

Regarding anti-Catholic aid

of those polled said that, in effect,
these groups have "made it" and
no longer have serious problem
in the U.S. Most Americans wen
so ignorant of actual past history
in the U.S. and Europe that
many thought neither Catholia
nor Jews had ever faced per-
secution, the poll found.
Between this ignorance and
current views that both group
are fully accepted now. McEvoj
fears that if trouble ever comes,
fewer non-Jews would rise up to
defend and help Jews than is
past decades.
McEvoy reminded the
audience that the poll predated
the current flare-up between
Blacks and Jews about Andrei
Young. He feels that Blacks see
Jews as a sub-group of racut
whites, and that Jews see Blacks
as part of the old anti-Semitic
Gentile society. McEvoy s point
is that Blacks and Jews, he-ini
both risen out of slavery, and
having a history in the United
States of a common struggled
dignity and acceptance on their
own terms in a white. Gentile
nation, will again join forca
when the current rift is healed.

Former Texas Go v. John Con-

1980 Republican Presidential
nomination, has outlined a nine-
point plan to settle the Arab-
Israeli conflict.

borders except for "minor"
changes, a permanent U.S.
military presence in the Middle

Mr. and Mrs. Greenberg point
out to holders of matured Israel
Bonds that such bonds do not
eam interest after the maturity
date. Furthermore, the State of
Israel cannot have full use of the
money which must be set aside
for redemption payments. If you
want the State of Israel to have
the full benefit of your continued
faith and participation in its
economic development, they
suggest you utilize your matured
bond for reinvestment now in the
current Israel Bond issue. Bring
your matured bond to this
meeting for this purpose.
Holders of Israel Bonds
maturing anytime in 1979 can
receive the full maturity value of
that bond immediately
regardless of the month of
maturity provided that it is
fully reinvested in a bond of the
next higher denomination.

On Healing
Series on the Jewish Physician
"Heal us. O Lord and we shall be healed; Send perfect
healing for our every illness. (Be it Thy will, Lord, our God, to
grant Thy speedy and perfect healing of body and spirit to
......and to other sick in Israel.) For Thou art the faithful
merciful physician." (Traditional Sedur-Amida)
Judaism is firm in its belief that healing of illness comes
from God. Sickness is a problem of life that challenges the
religious, moral, and mental resources of man. The Lord is the
healer; but He has taught man rules of cleanliness and of
moderation that he may remain healthy. The Chasidim would
quip. "The To rah begins with "Beriahit Buru," first of all
' Buru," one must be Gezund (healthy). God is the healer; but
the physician is his "good messenger." Faith in God restores
man s health, but not to the exclusion of proper medication."
It has always been a religious duty to visit the sick and to
pray on their behalf. Public prayers are said for the sick during
the reading of the Torah. When a person is seriously ill, the
family may change his name. A new name such as Hayim (life),
Alter (old) or Haya and Alta for their feminine equivalents are
added to the existing name. The added name is intended to be a
Segila (good omen) that its bearer may live to grow to an old
age. Others believed that the change of name would confuse the
Angel of Death who would be charged to bring the soul of a
certain name and unable to find such a person (because of
change of name) would return empty-handed, thus giving the
sick time to recover from his illness.
FOLLOWING are some of the teachings of the
Babylonian Talmud on Health.
"An imaginary illness is worse than a disease."
"Wash face, hands and feet every day out of respect for
"Bathing with hot water and not following it with cold
water is like inserting iron into a furnace and not afterward
plunging it into cold water."
"Three things never enter the body, yet the body derives
benefit: washing, annointing and exercise.
"Physical cleanliness leads to spiritual purity."
"Do not sit too much because it causes piles; nor stand too
long because it is bad for your heart; do not walk too much, it is
bad for the eyes. Spend a third of your waking hours sitting, a
third standing and a third walking."
"FOR GOOD health; eat a third, drink a third and leave a
third of your stomach empty."
"Three things weaken a man; fear, travel, and sin."
"Rinse your cup before and after drinking."
"Whoever eats without first washing his hands is as though
he had sex with a harlot."
"Teach a child to swim, for it will instill a liking for water."
"Cleanliness is next to Godliness."
"Runners cannot catch the man who ate breakfast."
"Do not make a habit of taking medicine."
"Wine enriches the blood."
"The egg, as to its nourishment, is a superior food."
"Dates (fruit) gives heat to the body, satisfy hunger and act
as a laxative."
"Drink water with your food and you with not suffer from
"A MAN dies when he is unemployed (idle), for idleness
'' Refrain from sexual intercourse in time of disaster."
"A man should spend less than his means on food and drink
for himself, up to his means on his clothes, above his means on
honoring his wife and children."
"Jealousy is a disease that destroys a person."
"A tall man should not marry a tail woman lest their
children be too tall; a short man should not marry a short
woman lest their children be too short; a dark man should marry
a fair woman so their children may be beautiful."
"The goose (gander) bends its head while walking, but its

Neo-Paganism Emerging in France
PARIS (JTA) Both the
French Communist Party and
France's "New Right" have been
accused of anti-Semitism. Two
left-wing French writers, Alain
de Sedouv and Andre Harris,
who published a book on The
Jews in France, last week ac-
cused the French Communist
Party and its leader Georges
Marchais. of trying to whitewash
the Soviet Union's official state-
imposed anti-Semitism.
At the same time, a right-wing
Philosopher. Bernard-Henry
Levy, accused the New Right of
trying to revive "the anti-
Semitism of far gone days" and
erasing the memory of the
Holocaust and Nazi crimes.
LEVY, speaking on Yom
Kippur eve at a ceremony held to
commemorate the six million
Jewish Holocaust victims, said
the current period in France "is
filled with sinister omens." He
accused the New Right of basing
its doctrines "on pseudo-
scientific theories, paganism and
racism to express its hatred of
Judaism, of the Jewish message
to the world and of Jewish
The New Right is a loose
formation of French intellectuals
and high-ranking officials who
profess a return to West
Furopean paganism of pre-
Christian days and a form of
society based on the principle
"that no two men are equal."
The New Right supporters,
probably not more than several
hundred, claim that new
scientific discoveries demon-
strate the "basic inequality of
men on the basis of race, culture
and education."
SOME 2.000 people, including
the president of the Furopean
Parliament Simone Veil, herself a
concentration camp survivor,
attended a ceremony at the Paris
Memorial to the Unknown
Jewish Martyr at which Levy
spoke. The French philosopher,
known as the head of the
country's school of "young
thinkers." said that "what we see
around us these days is an at-
mosphere filled with loud and
sinister omens" He condemned
anti-Zionism as "the screen
behind which is hiding the an-
cestral hatred of the Jew."
On Yom Kippur day. Le
Monde published a letter ac-
cusing the French Communist
Party and its general secretary of
a "local form" of anti-Semitism

The letter, written by Sedouy
and Harris, both of them well-
known non-Jewish writers,
replied to a denial by Marchais
that he and his party had ever
been guilty of anti-Semitism or of
silence on this question.

Women's Leader Believes
Appeal for Larger Families
Seen as Anti-Feminist Move
Graveside funeral services for

ter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence A.

Friends may make memorial

A Jewish feminist who is
committed to greater equality for
women within the framework of
Jewish religious law has declared
that "the call for more Jewish
babies is a simplistic solution to a
complex problem" which she
contended had some anti-feminist
implications. Paula Hyman,
assistant professor of history at
Columbia University, said
another issue in the problem and
proposed solution was "not
merely the number of persons
born as Jews, but the number nf
those who choose to live as
Reporting her views in an issue
of Sh'ma, she argued that "the
central factor" in gloomy
predictions about a shrinking
Jewish community was "the high
cost of assimilation either
through opting out of the
community or through minimal
affiliation among nominal Jews."
SHE SAID that she found
"particularly troubling" as a
Jewish feminist that many
proponents of large Jewish
families "appear insensitive to
those concerns and aspirations"
often categorized as self-
fulfillment. She declared most
Jewish feminists readily agree
that such fulfillment can come
through motherhood. But, she
added, many mothers seek
fulfillment outside the home as
well as within it.
Hyman declared that while the
family roles of American Jewish
women may be more egalitarian
than those of their parents, the
daily responsibility of raising
children with few exceptions,
"still fall far more heavily upon
mothers than upon fathers. The
fertility boosters rarely call for
men to assume a larger share of
child care."
Generally speaking, she
asserted, women who work
outside the home do have smaller
families than thhose who do not,
leading her to feel that
"proponents of large families
thus implicitly reinforce
traditional, and confining,
masculine and feminine rotes
within the family and explicitly
impose guilt upon women who
choose to limit their child-
She argued that, "at the very
least, promoters of high fertility
among Jews should address
themselves to the needs of those
women who are not enthralled
with the prospect of a decade of
full-time care of small children."
HYMAN ADDED that, "more
importantly, the fertility cam-
paign carries the message that
women can best contribute to
stemming the tide of Jewish
indifference in their biological
role as mothers," ignoring "our
individual and various tallents."
She said many childless women
and men make "significant
contributions to the Jewish
community and to Jewish sur-
vival" which "might have to be
curtailed" by the "respon-
sibilities of full-time parent-
She said her second fun-
damental criticism of "the
numbers game" was that, in the
past, Jews "never succumbed to
the notion that strength, not to
mention Tightness of belief, lay in
large numbers." Hyman asserted
that "the glorious Jewish
communities of the Golden Age
of Spain or of 16th SCentury .
Poland were far smaller than the
American, or Israeli or French
Jewish population of today."
SHE INSISTED that what
was needed, "in our much larger
communities" is the concern for
Jewish living and communal
survival which motivated our
forebears." While agreeing that
numbers were important, she
argued that "they are not suf-
ficient to promote bivrant and
creative Jewish communities."
She urged that it be recognized
that ultimately the decision to
have a third or fourth child, or
any children at all, "is a personal
one," which is affected more by
considerations of a practical than
a theological nature: "do the
parents have the time?"
Calling guilt, "even in the best
of causes," a "poor rational" for
bearing children, Hyman
declared that "we can provide a
supportive environment for
raising children Jewishly without
waging a crusade for higher
Jewish fertility."

insults this very real part of
Black history, not to mention
insulting Jews, when it says that
Jewish support for the Black
struggle was given when it was
"in their (Jews) best interest to
do so." No, that is not true,
because those Jews who sup-
ported, worked, and died in the
civil rights movement remember-
ed in their souls the pogroms in
Russia, the Holocaust, the dying
that is so constant in Israel, and
because they remembered, they
made our struggle a part of their
That Jews have not supported
affirmative action does nothing
to negate this. But this does not
seem good enough for Black
leadership, which takes the
position that the support Jews
gave in the past is to be
denigrated now. I cannot un-
derstand why Black leadership
lacks the simple humanity to
express gratitude for past
support, as well as the anger we
feel now in the face of Jewish
Instead, Black leadership has
acted as if Jews were responsible
for Andy Young's resignation. I
thought Andy was responsible
for that, and, with great dignity,
he explained that he needed to be
free to speak as he wished. But,
as Western history amply
demonstrates, whenever
something goes wrong it is easy
to blame the Jews.
BY DOING so, Black
leadership has shown itself to be
morally barren. By its support of
the Palestinians, it exemplifies a
callousness of spirit to the
meaning of the Holocaust,
because when six million Jews
are killed while the world is in-
different, the right of Israel to
exist is unassailable. That is the
only reasonable position I think
one can have on the Middle East.
Is Black leadership unable to
perceive that the world is still
indifferent to the lives of Jews?
We shouldn't be. because that
same world is indifferent to Black
lives. Are we unable to see that
the position of Jews in the world
has not changed significantly
since World War II? And what I
hear in the self-righteousness of
Black leaders is, very simply, we
don't give a damn.
The irony is that this new
expression of anti-Semitism was
spearheaded by the organization
founded by Martin Luther King,
Jr. the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference. Dr. King
has been dead only 11 years, but
when I listen to his SCLC suc-
cessors, it is hard to believe that
Dr. King ever lived.
I missed him these past weeks
because, for all my political
disagreements with him, he
helped me understand that
though I suffer by virtue of my
race, I cannot indulge that
suffering. Neither can I use
suffering to crown myself with a
tiara of moral superiority. I must
learn to carry that suffering as if
it were a long-stemmed rose I
offer to humanity.
I DO THAT by living with my
suffering so intimately as to
never forget that, having suffered
evil, 1 must be careful not to do
something that will, as Dr. King
put it, "intensify the existence of
evil in the universe." Because I
have suffered as a Black person, I
do not succumb to the thrill of
making others suffer. I look at
my own suffering and say. let
this inhuman suffering end here.
, How quickly, how effortlessly
those who knew and worked with
Dr. King have forgotten that he
taught that "all life is in-
my humanity as a Black person
was diminished. The differences
and tensions between Blacks and
Jews are real, but the positions
espoused recently by Black
leaders were not "our Declaration
of Independence." as Kenneth
Clark put it. They merely showed
that Blacks, too, can be Ger-
terrelated," that "all humanity is
involved in a single process, and
to the degree that I harm my
brother, to that extent I am
harming myself," and that
"creation is so designed that m'
personality can only be fulfille
in the context of community."
I am deeply sorry that Black
leadership spoke as it did because
