This uneasiness, which in some

that the place of the Jew in a

become a major topic of
discussion in French newspapers

"Why is there as much talk

No Mexican
Oil to Israel,
Leftists Say
MEXICO CITY (JTA) A group of left-wing
parties will introduce a bill in the Chamber of Deputies to
suspend Mexican oil sales to Israel, the Socialist Workers
Party has announced. It sais it would act in concert with
other leftist, progressive and "revolutionary circles" to
compel Israel to evacuate "occupied Arab territories" and
comply with other United Nations resolutions relating to
the Palestinian people.
MEXICO HAS become a major supplier of oil to
Israel since Iranian oil shipments were cut off by the
Islamic regime of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini.
The announcement followed the release here of a joint
statement by President Jose Lopez Portillo and visiting
President Henryk Jablonski of Poland dealing with in-
ternational affairs which stated, among other things, the
need for a general peace settlement in the Middle East
that would include "recognition of the legitimate rights of
he Palestinian people."

Brewer knowing they were going
to a special occasion, but they did
not know just how unique this
Bar Mitzvah would be.
Laurence, the son of Dr. and
Mrs. Herbert Brewer, was
presented a most precious gift by
his sister Wendi. During the
ceremony, Wendi danced for her
brother, a very old and almost
forgotten Hebraic dance of
celebration. Gifts of poetry,
music and dance have long been
personal gifts to young Jewish
men as treasures of intellectual
stimulation and respect. Among
the Sephardic Jews in Spain,
these were the most honored of
gifts to Bar Mitzvah boys,
especially when presented by a
member of the immediate family.
Wendi wore a Hebraic gown of
light golden sand with floral em-
broidery .of red, green, lavender
and blue. In the final moments of
the dance, she presented
Laurence with a scarlet rose,
symbolic of a long and pros-
perous life. Authentic steps were
furnished to Wendi's teacher,
Gene Hammett, artistic director
of the Tidewater Ballet
Association, by the New York
Dance Library and ethnic dance
professor, "La Meri."

Kol Ami Announces
Special Meeting
Congregation Kil Ami will hold
a special congregational meeting
Tuesday, Nov. 20, at 8 p.m., at
the Carroll wood Rec Center,
corner McFarland and Orange

Allan Fox, Kol Ami president.
This meeting has been called to
show the congregation the
finalized plans for the building
and to request permission to
proceed with plans for the
groundbreaking tentatively set
for Dec. 16. This construction
would be the first phase of a three
phase building project.
Kol Ami, Tampa's newest
congregation, now numbers over
100 families primarily in the
northwest area. The first phase
would include approximately
11,000 square feet, including an
expandable sanctuary-social hall,
classrooms and offices. The
congregation property is located
one block east of Dale Mabry on

Thanksgiving Joint Service
Began Some 25 Years Ago
If one searched the archives, deep and dusty, for the exact date of
the First Joint Thanksgiving Day Service between Palma Ceia United
Methodist Church and Congregation Schaarai Zedek, it might be
revealed as being some 25 years ago.
The service was started by Rabbi David Zielonka and the then
minister of the Palma Ceia United Methodist Church, Rev. Paul
Wagner. It was one of the first interfaith, goodwill gestures in the
community and has since become a tradition.
Whether or not any of the theology of one group is absorbed by
the other is unknown and probably not too important. The important
aspect of this joint endeavor is fellowship and of that, there is an
This year the service will be held at Congregation Schaarai Zedek,
3303 Swann Ave., Thanksgiving Day, at 10 a.m. Clergy and lay
leaders of both congregations will participate. The sermon will be
delivered by Rev. Roland Vansant, senior minister of the Palma Ceia
United Methodist Church.
The service will be followed by a social hour to be held in the
Annis Memorial Biblical Gardens. A most cordial invitation to join in
worship on this Thanksgiving Day is extended to all.

Integrity as a Practice
President Carter took the occasion at a press
conference last week to lash out at Iran's takeover of
the U.S. Embassy in Teheran. With Ireland's Prime
Minister John Lynch at his side, a man who is much
plagued by terrorism himself, the President declared
that the U.S. would never succumb to the threats
and intimidations of murderers and terrorists.
At the very same time, the United States was
freely and forthrightly acknowledging that it would
accept any effort on the part of the Palestine
Liberation Organization to intercede with the
Ayatollah Khomeini in behalf of the 60 American
hostages incarcerated by Iranian students at our
If this isn't a case of doubletalk, then we never
saw one. Just who and what does President Carter
think the PLO is, a women's auxiliary garden club?
The acts of terrorism this outfit proudly claims to be
of its own authorship would be enough to enshrine
the PLO in the halls of infamy reckoned by the most
generous of standards.
Yet there was Mr. Carter, denouncing terrorism,
while at the same time his administration was con-
ceding that it was seeking a terrorist band's
assistance in Teheran.
We are not so much concerned with consistency
as a principle as we are with integrity as a practice.
In our view, the President's attack on terrorism was
without integrity.
A Cute Scheme
There is not doubting Robert Strauss' remark-
able capabilities in jawboning in the old Lyndon
Johnson style in which jawboning in fact becomes
behind-the-scenes armtwisting.
There is also no doubting Sol Linowitz'
credentials in the diplomatic arena.
We raised an eyebrow when President Carter
chose Strauss as his special envoy to the Israel-
Egypt peace negotiations in the Middle East, not
because of his qualifications, but because he is
Jewish. We did not raise the point at the time; we
thought to question the President's motives then
would be a supreme example of reverse dis-
But now that Mr. Carter has chosen Sol
Linowitz to succeed Strauss, we believe that the
President's motives must be questioned. Two
American Jewish negotiators in a row? Are there no
other qualified men he can think of who are not
The point is that what the President clearly has
in mind is that a Jewish negotiator will bend back-
wards to accommodate any pressure the ad-
ministration may have in mind for more and more
and more Israeli concessions.
By the best of standards, Mr. Strauss is not
much of a Jewish community-oriented Jew. But Mr.
Linowitz is. The Carter administration's scheme may
be cute, but it is hardly praiseworthy.
Agenda for the 1980's
The Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare
* unds has gradually become the representative body
of North American Jewry. When it holds its General
Assembly each year, it sets the agenda for the some
800 Jewish communities in the United States and
Canada it serves.
. Th,e,?'?F'?.48th General Assembly, which is
being held in Montreal now through Sunday, Nov
18, is especially important because it must deal with
the agenda for the next decade. Continued support
for Israel, the ongoing quest for peace in the Middle
East, the issue of Soviet Jewry, and the problems of
t M m endangered areas are all high on the agenda

AS AN editor who occasionally
is also called upon to writ* a
headline for one news story or
another. 1 am particularly
sensitive to the length of the
names of those people who are
the everyday fare of the
professional headline-writer.
A headline-writer"s lot is sheer
frustration resulting from his
never-ending search for ways to
fit the names of our leading lights
into a two-or even four-column
spread, let alone that most lonely
of newspaper items, the single-
column story.
THE PROBLEM is not simply
to come up with any old way, but
a way that is essentially
respectable, by which I mean
suitable to the stellar status of
the personality involved. And
also to come up with a way that is
occasionally even funny, not to
mention punny that technique
by which the headline-writer
demonstrates his otherwise
hidden intellectual capability-
Take the French president,
Valery Giscard d'Estaing. What

important issue especially now

and preciousness has fallen from
his personal pinnacle into the be-
jewelled slime native to most
other politicians, who wallow in it
as a matter of course.

Henri Rochefort's mot celebre
about the French empire under
Napoleon III: "France counts
forty million subjects beside all
the subjects of discontent," hold
true for Quebec these days.
Late next spring or in early
summer, six million Quebecers
80 percent of them French-speak-
ing Catholics will be called
upon to vote on whether or not
they are in favor of a new
relationship between Quebec and
English Canada based on a vague
formula of Sovereignty-Associa-
The question has yet to be

ment and opposition but what-

sequence, the dismantling of
ONCE THE Canadian
province most populated by
Jews, Quebec still has a
population of over 100,000 Jews.
The referendum looming on the
horizon has created uneasiness
verging on anguish among a
majority of Jews living in this

to power in 1976. several

mostly young, dynamic, univer-
sity graduates as well as owners
of small and medium business,
have silently moved over the
border to Ontario and farther
west. But the majority, some
109,000, are still here waiting for
the other shoe to fall.
The government of Premier
Rene Levesque, fully aware that
the overwhelming majority of
Jews will vote against the policy
of sovereignty-association, has
tried hard to reassure the Jewish
public of its "good intentions."
Recently, the proposed 20 per-
cent cut in subsidies for the
Jewish day schools (the pretext
invoked was that not enough
French was taught in Jewish day
schools) was frozen.
WORD IS being spread by the
government that the State of
Israel is positively perceived even
though moves are made towards
Arab countries by the same
officials with an eye to Arab
investments in Quebec. This
ambiguous policy has sown mis-
trust among Jews.
Nonetheless, the PQ govern-
ment affirms to all and sundry
that nothing will happen to
Jewish interests and business

Three former Soviet Jewish
Prisoners of Conscience
urged the American public
not to relax its campaign on
behalf of Soviet Jews. They
said they feared the recent
increases in Soviet Jewish
emigration would lull
Americans into a false
sense of victory, while in
reality, more Jews than
ever before are denied exit
The three, Eduard Kuznetsov
Anatoly Altman and Wulf
Zalmanson, spoke today at a
press conference sponsored by
the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) at the
Carnegie Endowment Center
THE THREE were recently
touring the U.S. on a mission
designed to rally American public
support to secure the release of
Iosif Mendelevich, Yuri Federov
and Aleksei Murzhenko, whc
have been in Soviet labor camps
for more than 10 years. They are
imprisoned for their part in the
June, 1970 attempt to hijack a
Soviet airplane and fly to Israel.
Altman, Salmanson and three
other Jews were pardoned in
April by Soviet President Leonid
Brezhnev, while Kuznetsov was
among a group of five prisoners
exchanged by the U.S. for two
Soviet citizens convicted of
spying in New Jersey.
Recently, Kuznetsov, Altman
and Zalmanson met in
Washington with National
Security Advisor Zbigniew
Brzezinski, Congressmen and
other U.S. officials. They said
Brzezinski promised the U.S. will
increase its efforts on behalf of
Soviet Jews.
IN A press conference here,
Zalmanson said that Men-
delevich, who is an Orthodox
Jew, suffers more and is subject
to harsher treatment because he
refuses to abandon his religious
practices. Although he was
originally sentenced to a labor
camp, he has been transferred to
Chistopol Prison.

Education in Judaism
Dedicated to my daughter the educator
"The intelligent shall shine brilliantly like the brilliance of
the sky; and they that bring many to righteousness shall be like
the stars forever and ever." (Daniel 12:3)
Rab said the first part of the sentence, "The intelligent,"
applies to a judge (Dayun) who gives forth a true verdict on true
evidence (true to its own truth). The second part, "They that
bring many to righteousness," applies to the teachers of
children, who teach their pupils the way of righteousness. As to
the teachers it is written, "May those that love him be as the
rising of the sun in his might." (Judges 5:31) IBaba Bathra 8b)
A favorite saying of Raba was: "The goal of wisdom is repen-
tance and good deeds." (Berachoth 17a)
When Rabbi Eliezer fell ill. his disciples visited him. They
said: "Master teach us the paths of life so that we may win the
life of the future world." He answered: Be solicitous for the
honor of your colleagues, set your children between the knees of
scholars, and when you pray, know before whom you are
Preferred Treatment
for Teachers
Rabbi Dimi from Nehardea (Babylon) brought a load of figs
' in a boat. The Exilarch said to Raba, "Go and see if he is a
scholar, and if so reserve the market for him so that no one else
should sell figs till he has disposed of his stock." "Go and smell
his jar." (A Babylonian expression: see whether the wine is
good; i.e. test his scholarship).
Raba accordingly greeted him and put to him the following
question: "If an Elephant swallows a basket and passes it out
with its excrement, is it subject to the rules of unclean, is it
regarded as being still a basket or as excrement?" He did not
know the answer. He did not reserve the market for him and so
his figs were a dead loss. He appealed to Rabbi Joseph, saying:
"See how they have treated a teacher in Israel." Shortly af-
terwards Rabbi Adda B. Abba died by an untimely death. Rabbi
Dimi said: It is through me that he has been punished because
he caused a teacher a great loss. However Abaye saiH it was his
own transgressions that caused his death Because he used to
say to his students: "Instead of gnawing bones in the school of
Abaye, why do you not come to eat fat meat in the school of
Raba?" He claimed that the teaching in Raba's school was
Rab Judah said in the name of Rab: "Anyone who is not a
scholar and parades in the scholar's cloak is not admitted within
the circle of the Holy One. blessed be He." IBaba Bathra 98a)
A guarantee of the authenticity of material being taught
was necessary and this was found in the chain of tradition. The
"teachings" had been transmitted from Moses, through Joshua,
Elders, Prophets down to the days of the Great Synagogue,
through the "Pairs" to Hillel and Shammai, from there it passes
to the carefully guarded schools. The genuineness of tradition,
could be assured only if in every generation it had been in the
custody of trustworthy teachers.
Study as well as prayer is Avodah, worship, like the service
of the Altar (Mizbaeach). The conception of individual study
and collective study as a form of Divine Service have persisted
in Judaism throughout the ages.
The ideal in our religion was a people instructed not only in
the observance of religion but in the conceptions of the character
of God, His will and His purpose for mankind. The in-
strumentalities created for this and eventually constituted a
complete system of education, from the elementary to the most
advanced training of a rabbi in Israel.
In Palestine and in Syria and Babylonia, lessons were read
in Hebrew and interpreted in the Aramaic vernacular of the
land: and in this same language the explanation followed.
The Jews in exile had lost their knowledge of the Hebrew
language, the Scriptures were translated into Greek. The Greek
translation of the Torah is the oldest of which we have any
knowledge. It was a necessity for the Jews in Greek speaking
Elementary schools for boys were established, mostly
supported by the community. The Torah was used as a textbook
to teach reading. Bible schools were established, taught by
competent members of the congregation.
Students attended advanced studies in Rabbinical Schools,
in which they learned Halacha (Law) Midrash and Talmud.
These studies required a good memory, many fell out by the
way; very few graduated as qualified teachers and masters in
"Such is the usual way of the world; a thousand enter Bible
School a hundred graduate to the study of Mishna, 10 of them
go to Talmud study and only one arrives at the "teacher
degree." (Midrash, Eccl. 7:28)

Rabin Mum on Censors' Role in New Boo]
Former Prime Minister Yitzhah
Rabin again cited Israeli law as
the reason he could not comment
on reports that censors deleted a
section from his memoirs
describing the expulsion of
50,000 Arabs from Lod and
Ramie during Israel's War of
But Rabin told an overflow
audience at Manhattans
Congregation B"nai Jeshurun
that during the 1948-49 war,
which he described as the
"longest, most bitter war" in
Israel's history, both Arab and
Jewish settlements were
destroyed, and both Arabs and
Jews had to evacuate set-
made at the opening session of
the Conservative congregation's
"Dialogue "79" series in which he
answered questions on a wide
range of subjects posed to him by
Rabbi William Berkowitz,
spiritual leader of the con-
gregation and creator of the 29-
year-old series.
When Berkowitz asked him
about a recent New York Times
report that censors deleted a
section on the expulsion of the
Arabs on Premier David Ben
Gurion's orders, Rabin said if
there were such an "alleged"
account in his book, The Rabin
Memoirs, and if it was censored,
he would not be able to discuss it
under Israeli law.
But Rabin, who was a brigade
commander in the War of
Independence, urged people
before they judge what happened
in a war to find out who started
it. He pointed out that Israel's
leaders had been ready to accept
the truncated state recommended
by the United Nations but first
Arabs in Palestine attacked the
Jews, and then Israel was in-
vaded by the armies of seven
Arab states. He said half of the
Israeli civilians and soldiers
killed in Israels 31-year history
died in that war.
HE SAID if the Arabs had
accepted partition, as Israel had,
there would not be now more
than 30 years of prolonged war,
or a Palestinian refugee problem,
or would there have been the
large number of Jewish refugees
that came from Arab countries
after the War of Independence.
Turning to current issues,
Rabin repeated his belief that a
solution to the West Bank should
come through an agreement be-
tween Israel and Jordan rather
than the autonomy proposed by
Prime Minister Menachem
He said a West Bank con-
trolled by Jordan will always see
Amman as its capital, not
Jerusalem, while he believes the
Arabs elected to the self-
governing authority would
agitate for East Jerusalem as
their capital.
RABIN, a leader of the Labor
Party opposition, said the dif-
ference over the West Bank with
the Begin government is one of
attitude. He said both believe in
the historic right of Jews to all of
Eretz Israel, that Jerusalem
should remain undivided as
Israel's capital, that there should
be no return to the pre-1967
borders, that there should not be
a Palestinian state and that there
should be no negotiations with
the Palestine Liberation Or-
But Begin's position, as made
clear in the 1977 election cam-
paign that brought Likud to
office, is that there should be no
foreign sovereignty between the
Jordan River and the Mediter-
ranean. Rabin said. He said the
I,abor Party, however, was
willing to give up the parts of the
West Bank that were heavily
populated by Arabs in return for
real peace.
Rabin said that in addition, he
personally does not want to be i
control of 1.6 million Arabs wk
don't want to be part of Israel.
HE SAID he wants a Jewislj
State and that means
population 75-80 percent Jewish]
Rabin added that if there were sii
to eight million Jews in Isr
today instead of three-and-ah
million, his position might
different. "I don't see that many
olim have come from the affluent]
societies where most of the
Jewish population lives outside
of Israel and the Soviet Union."

We love hearing about youth activity and involvement, so
everyone, keeo letting us know!
Lillian Rosenkrantz marks a soecial date in her life this
month with the celebration of her 50th year as a member of the
IndeiHindent Order of Foresters. The organization marked this
soecial event by awarding Lillian the 50th jewel pin. The Order
ni Foresters is a nationwide organization whose members may or
may not have insurance. In addition to various volunteer ser-
uo s ihey provide, mainly they look out for and take care of
their members. Lillian's husband joined this organization first,
uo in New York, and then Lillian joined after she was married.
Lillian, who has been residing in Tamoa now for five years,
has been coming from New York to her sister in Tampa for the
laM 53 years. She now lives at the Jewish Towers. Her eldest
daughter, Edith MacNamara, resides in Clearwater and comes
ova lo visit Lillian weekly. Her youngest daughter, Naomi
Weiss, will be retiring to Tamoa and will begin construction of
Ik i now home, with her husband, in December. Lillian, we are so
glad you let us know about this special occasion in your life. We
congratulate you.
Jack Chernoff, President of the Men's Club of Congregation
Ifci h Israel, reminds us to put an important date on our calendar
i hat of Saturday, Dec. 22. On this evening, come to Beth
Israel and enjoy "Disco Dancing." soonsored by the Men's
Club. Four Arthur Murray dancers will perform, and free dance
missM will be given out. The hospitality hour commences at

r\ iv single person in attendance. Sisterhood president Judy
Hersch informs us that Sisterhood catering supplied an ab-
solutely delicious dairy buffet. A live band called "PrimeTime"
really added swing" to this evening. Also, prizes were awarded

KILLER? The Brotherhood of Congregation Schaarai Zedek
oresented a unique and most interesting program on Wednes-
day, Nov. 14, at a monthly dinner meeting. The State of Florida
has the dubious distinction of having more condemned men on
death row than any other state in the nation. The subject is so
controversial that the eyes of the country were focused on
Florida back in May when the first execution in many years took
Dlace. Since then, a flurry of divided opinions has brought into
focus the oros and cons of this inflammatory subject. For this
debate on caoital ounishment, the affirmative was taken by
Richard Menah, Esq., representing the State Attorney's Office
of Pinellas County. Taking the negative was Rick Levineon,
Esq., noted criminal attorney in private practice in Tampa.
In addition, brotherhood president Dr. Robert Haas in-
forms us of some forthcoming programs. In December, Dr.
Raymond Shelton, superintendent of schools of the Hills-
borough County School System, will speak. After the New Year,
George Firestone, Secretary c f State of Florida, will be the guest
sneaker at the annual Brotherhood / Sisterhood dinner meeting.
Also, three new Brotherhood positions have been an-
nounced: Al Feldman was elected to the board to fill a vacancy,
Jake Gottfried is now in charge of raffles and all monies will go
to the Zielonka Camp Fund, and Dr. Irwia Browarsky is
assisting the Brotherhood in forming a blood bank. It looks like
a very busy and stimulating calendar for this organization.
National Council of Jewish Women has arranged a series of
private lectures covering exhibits at the new Tampa Art
Museum. The lectures will take Dlace once a month at the
Museum. Each lecture will deal with the current exhibit, with a
museum docent oroviding the private lecture. This seems like a
marvelous way to show new interest in the arts while meeting
socially with NCJW friends.
The "tentative" schedule of dates for these lectures is:
Nov. 26 "Romantic America," Dec. 17 "Circus," Jan.
21 "Arts of Europe," Feb. 25 "Reflections The Child of
America," March 17 "Master Works on Paper," and April 28
- "Belgian Culture." NCJW members who are interested in
attending should contact Marian Winters about these monthly
one-hour lectures.
Meet Diane and Peter Jacobson who moved to Tampa from
Houston, Tex., 16 months ago. The Jacobsons have one child,
l1/-year-old Leonard. Our new family lives in the Temple
Terrace area of town. Peter is a doctor of internal medicine. He is
in nrivate practice with offices in both Brandon and in Tampa.
Peter is originally from Coral Gables and Diane is from New
Orleans, where they met while Peter was at Tulane. The Jacob-
sons have quickly become very involved in various
organizations. They are members of Congregation Schaarai
Zedek. Diane is vice oresident of public affairs and community
service for National Council of Jewish Women; she is also a
member of ORT and the Medical Auxiliary, of which she is on
the membership committee, and in addition, she is a volunteer
"friendly visitor" for Tamoa Jewish Social Service. Peter is a
member of the Hillsborough County Medical Association and
loves to jog in his snare time. We're so glad to meet this new
family and knew you would be too!

All of this, as you may have

presidential campaign. President

simply being called Carter, which
costs 5.5 units in the headline-

ters. After all, what can you call

"m's," Jimmy also works out to a
symmetrical 5.5., an "m" being
one of those pesky characters
that is fat enough to charge 1.5

ON THE other hand, Baker
won't have to suffer anything as

writer's art because that, too, is

more, if he makes it. he will have

pretty much put him in Jimmy
Carter's category, give or take a

who wins between them won't
matter much, not in the nation's

BUT CAREFUL political
analysis leans toward the battle
between Carter and Ted as the
ultimate struggle, at least in the
'nominations phase, and my
inside sources tell me that the
President is preparing a secret
memo to the nation's headline-
writers revealing to them how
they can save a full unit in head-
count over Ted and still maintain
proper presidential decorum.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
Hayye Sarah
HAYYE SARAH Sarah, Abraham's beloved wife, died.
Abraham buried her in the cave of Machpelah in the land of
Then Abraham told his servant Eliezer to go back to his
native country and take a wife for his son Isaac from among his
own relations.
With a caravan of 10 camels, Eliezer came to the town of
Nahor. He and his camels rested near the well. As the town
maidens came to the well, Eliezer asked of them: "May I drink
of the water in your pitcher?"
The first to reply was Rebekah. daughter of BethueJ,
nephew of Abraham. She said: "Drink, air, and I will draw water
for your camels also."
When Eliezer learned who she was, he thanked God for His
help. And Rebekah invited Eliezer to her home, where he met her
father and her brother Laban.
They heard all that had happened and said: "This has been
destined by the Lord. If Rebekah is willing, take her and let her
be the wife of Isaac."
Rebekah gladly consented, and Eliezer returned with her.
Isaac loved Rebekah and married her. And Abraham lived 175
years. When he died he was buried in the cave of Machpelah,
near Sarah his wife.

tentions. Lebowitz knows that
racism and anti-Semitism were
part of Washington before the
Andy Young affair. For instance,
whites generally don't shop in his
store because, as a family
discount chain with a large
number of Black employees,
Morton's is seen as a "Black
store." Once, when a Black
customer grew angry at a white
sales clerk. Lebowitz recalls, the
Community Council of Greater piece was originally published.
"WE HAVE to understand
who our true enemies are," says
Brown, a Black man. "Jews have
historically profited as slum lords
and merchants from the suffering
of Black people They're the
ones who run those stores with
the cheap goods, high markups

incorrect," says Coopersmith, a
Jewish man. "Most landlords
and merchants aren't Jewish.
Most of the Jewish landlords and
merchants were burnt out and
left the city after the riots .
It's a persistent lie It's like
saying Black muggers and Black
rapists ... It is repeating what
Hitler said. It could undo another
generation of Jews. And the
worst thing, there is no Black
leadership repudiating it."
Black attacker. Jewish ex-
ploiter. Both racial stereotypes
hinge on a personal fear. Fear of
physical harm, of getting raped
or beat up. Fear of being abused
by someone who has business
know-how and owns a store.
Unlike the Andy Young affair,
the one event that truly packages
those fears for Blacks and Jews is
a riot: Blacks physically ripping
into stores, some of which are
owned by Jews.
worst thing the customer could
think to call the saleswoman was
a "Jew nigger."
Words like those are what
jump from the back of the mind
to the lip when certain people are
angry. And they give you an idea
of how much damage is being
done by attention to the so-called
Black-Jewish rift. That attention
brings the nasty thoughts that
much closer to the tongue. It is
fuel and false proof to confirm
other unfounded nasty thoughts
about the other group of people.
And it brings all the racists
and anti-Semites to the front to
say to their friends, "Hey, look at
this in the paper. Didn't I tell you
those people were no good?"
Europeans Topple
Before PLO Charm
LAST MONTH, a Jewish
owned store. Morton's, in the
mostly Black and poor part of
town, Anacostia, was hit by a
tiny riot. Young Black men
walking in large groups on the
way home from a late summer's
night concert in the park,
smashed display windows and
looted the store.
Mortimer Lebowitz, the store's
owner, doesn't want to believe
liiui hit. store was hit because a
Jewish person owns it. Most
people would agree with him that
he probably was simply unlucky
to have his store on the route
leading from the park. But Lebo-
witz recalls that in the South,
where most Washington Blacks
come from, the town store, any
store, was called "The Jew
Store.'" Just what everybody
called the local store, according
to Lebowitz. Sort of like the way
Southern whites call Blacks
"boy'' or "nigger" or "Picka-
ninny' and show surprise if
Blacks get upset. So it could be
that Blacks from the South have
taken on white Southern at-
titudes toward Jews. Lebowitz
"Jews felt the full brunt of the
riots in '68," said Lebowitz. "But
I don't know if it was directed at
Jews. Jews historically have been
retailers and Jews still go into
poverty-stricken areas that are
distasteful to some other retailers
. After the riots there was a lot
of talk about how Jews exploited
Blacks. Store owner was seen in
the pejorative. But the store
owner is there to do business, to
trade. And there is a quid pro quo
on every trade. If the doctor
treats you when you're sick, he's
trading on your illness."
BUT LEBOWITZ, a former
president of the Urban League, a
largely Black organization, feels
that racism, anti-Semitism and
ignorance get thrown into the
picture and suddenly store
owners are exploiting people by
their very presence. Especially
Jewish store owners, althougi.

Jewish Telegraphis Agency
Faruk Kadumi, political
director of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, told
reporters in Rome that he was
"highly satisfied" with his three-
day visit there. He also had
reason to be satisfied with his
visit to Belgium several days
The foreign ministers of both
countries all but granted official
recignition to the PLO. and Italy
is apparently ready to receive
PLO chief Yasir Arafat who is to
visit France, Belgium and
Portugal this month.
KADUMI HAD lunch and a
three and one-half hour talk with
Italian Foreign Minister Franco
Maria Malfati. Malfati said
afterwards that "Italy has no
problem in granting political
recognition to the PLO, nor does
the Italian government find any
obstacles to the principle of an
eventual visit by Arafat."
Malfati said, however, that
"political recognition is not to be
confused with juridical
recognition of the PLO as the
exclusive represntative of the
Palestinian people."
The latter status, he noted,
could be won by the PLO only
through "free and universal
elections among the Palestinian
people"' which at the moment are
"practically impossible." Malfati
said that Italy has long con-
sidered the PLO an "important
force" among the Palestinian
people "playing an important
role in the attempt to find a
global solution to the Middle
Fast problem."
IN BRUSSELS last Thursday.
Belgian Foreign Minister Henri
Simonet said his government
recognized the PLO as "ex-
pressing the will of the
Palestinian people." Speaking
after a meeting with Kadumi, he
contended that a bilateral peace
agreement, such as the Camp
David accords, is not sufficient
for the establishment of a solid,
lasting and comprehensive peace
in the Middle Fast.
"The main issues which need a
solution concern the status of the
occupied territories and their
future destiny." the Belgian
minister said.
He added that the future "of
the occupied territories is to
liecome the country in which the
Palestinians can build the
framework of their identity, their
rights, their existence as a
nation. It matters not whether we
like or not this situation. We
have to face reality." He said,
however, that it was "premature
to extend an official recognition"
to the PLO.
Committee of Jewish
Organizations in Belgium, which
represents 35 Jewish
organizations, wrote Simonet
expressing its "apprehension"
over what it termed a tie facto
recognition of the terrorist
organization that seeks the
destruction of Israel. A
demonstration by Belgian Jewish
students outside Simonet "s home
Thursday night was dispersed by
police. There were no arrests.
In Rome. Kadumi topped off
his visit by calling at Socialist
and Communist Party
headquarters. Asked by the
daily. Lo Stampu. if the FLO is
considering direct negotiations
with Israel, Kadumi replied,
according to the interview, "How
can we consider negotiating with
those who occupy our territory
presuming it as an integral part
of the Zionist state?"
He added. "Of course, we are
for a negotiated solution of the
conflict, but in the proper place. I
repeated this three times to
Malfati. The ideal place for
negotiations cannot be other than
the United Nations. There,
everyone is represented."
Italy's position, according to
observers, is to follow but not
attempt to surpass the pro-PLO
line of the nine European
Economic Community (EEC)
nations. It is expected that
Arafat will visit Italy and will be
received by Premier Francesco
Cossiga and that the PLO office
in Rome will be upgraded to a
more official status.

THIS SUDDEN dangerous
increase in anti-Semitism, which
Is admitted even by those who
plead that its strength should not
be exaggerated, and the con-
tinuous discussion in the press
and radio about the place of the
Jew in society, have come as a
surprise to the French-Jewish
leadership. "The French people
always need a topic for discussion
u-d they have picked the Jews,"
remarked Mrs. Nelly Gutman, a
university lecturer and expert on
anti-Semitism. But she agrees
that there are other strange
factors in the present alarming
situation in France.
Pierre Kaufmann, director of
t'rif. sees the start of the
discussion in the French press on
French Jewry at the moment
when the leading French
newspaper L'Express. owned by
Sir James Goldsmith, published
an interview with a French war
criminal who helped in the
deportation of many thousands
of French Jews, This interview
with Ixiuis Darquier de Pellepoix
in November. 1978, who was
sentenced to death in absentia
and escaped to Spain, opened the
floodgates of vicious anti-
Semitism. He claimed that the
Holocaust was a "big lie" in-
vented by the Jews.
French Jews were shocked that
u respectable journal could lend
it sell to such pro-Nazi
propHgaixlu The protest % which
.lews und everyone concerned
with human values voiced, did
nothing to stem the outburst of
poisonous articles and books.
A number of publications
immediately rushed forth to
make similar declarations. Such
publications as Anpecta rfc lu
r'ninre and Minute loudly
declared that the main threat
lacing France came from the
Jews and from Zionism. Prof.
Robert Faurisson. of Lyons
University, denied the existence
ot gas chambers in the Nazi
concentration camps and
doubted the uuthentkrity of the
lighting neo-Nazism and anti-
Semitism fought back. Serge
Klarsfeld, a Paris Jewish lawyer
whose father was murdered by
the Nazis in Auschwitz, lodged a
judicial complaint against Jean
Legay, accusing him of crimes
against humanity. Klarsfeld, who
was joined in the complaint by
the International league Against
Anti-Semitism and Racism
(Lica). staled thul Legay was a
principal figure in the rounding
up of Jews in Paris in 1942 before
being deported to the Nazi
concentration camps where most
of them perished. This case has
still to be decided finally by
French courts.
The anti-Semitic poison fell on
fruitful ground, according to
French-Jewish observers.
Anti-Semitism has been en-
demic among some sections of
the French people for many
generations, and there are new
political factors which add to the
hostility towards the French

Communist Party, for example,
has a very strong Stalinist
section, if it is not entirely pro-
Stalinist. The party is very
hostile to Israel. The French
Communists largely associate
French Jews, conscious of their
identity, with Israel.
"Zionists" are virulent and
sustained. A French journalist,
Julien Marveges remarl
"French anti-Semitism is

A public tribute to Penson,

freedom movement on Friday,
Dec. 7, in Avery Fisher Hall at

A Friday morning plenary
meeting at the Hilton will feature
an overview by Jewish Agency
treasurer Akiva Lewinsky of the
vastly increased human needs to
be met by Agency programs in
1980 with the help of UJA
Federation campaign funds. The
Agency's rising responsibility for
crucial absorption, resettlement
and Project Renewal
rehabilitation services in Israel,
according to Field, is a major
factor in creating a national UJA
1980 goal calling for a 20 percent
increase in regular pledges, plus
an all-out additional effort for
Project Renewal.
Meeting the regular campaign
goal, he indicated, is also crucial
to sustaining and expanding the
local services of communities
faced with inflationary costs
while trying to resettle twice the
number of Soviet Jewish emigres
as they welcomed last year.
A comprehensive series of
seminars, workshops and
communitv consultations is
scheduled throughout the three-
day conference period. They are
designed," the UJA leader said,
"to prepare our communities
thoroughly for converting the
unified spirit of this solidarity
conference into decisive unified
action in the 1980 campaign and

The argument going around some Jewish
homes is: "Mott's is delicious"-or-"Mott's
are delicious." But there is never any
argument about DELICIOUS. Because
they are. Mott's captures all the
natural and sparkling taste
of the sun-ripened fruit. And
many Jewish housewives know
it And that's why they serve
Mott's to the family.
Whether it's one of the
apple sauce varieties or
the prune products, you
just know it's the finest
because Mott's uses only
the finest quality apples
and sun-ripened prunes.
So whether it should
be Mott's 'IS', or
Mott's '"are/is"
