t there is only a gesture when

Once that has been achieved, the
same old things continue as
always, he says.
A Newsweek magazine article
about Soviet dissidents in
September noted that Ginzburg
said he did not ask for exile and
still thinks the U.S. was duped
into thinking the swap was a
humane act on the part of the
"Out of this gesture," he was
quoted in Newsweek as saying,
"they have won the SALT treaty
and they have received their
spies. They have shown the
United States that they have
become better people, but they
are not better by one gram. There
are arrests occurring in the
Soviet Union daily."
Now in exile in the U.S.,
Ginzburg is writing an auto-
biography, lecturing and editing
underground Soviet articles for
broadcast into Russia by radio.
TODAY, Ginzburg makes his
home in Vermont on the estate of
novelist Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
A veteran of three separate sen-
tences in Soviet labor camps,
Ginzburg's involuntary exile in
the United States was viewed as
a major breakthrough when it

was announced that he and four
other dissidents and their
families would be allowed to leave
the Soviet Union.
Ginzburg speaks out for the
Soviet dissidents and hopes that
one day his family will be allowed
to join him. Ginzburg, who is not
Jewish, is closely allied with the

protests against the Russian

Alexander Ginzburg, born in
Moscow in November of 1936,
has been active in the human
rights movement in the USSR
from its very inception. On April
27, 1979, Ginzburg was released
from a Soviet labor camp and
exchanged, along with fellow
political prisoners Eduard Kuz-
netsov, Mark Dymshits, Valen-
tyn Moroz, and Pastor Georgi
Vins, for two convicted spies.
This widely-publicized event cap-
tured the attention of the world.
While in the USSR, Alexander
Ginzburg was the administrator
of the Russian Social Fund, a
charitable organization founded
by him and exiled author
Alexander Solzhenitsyn to aid
Soviet prisoners and their
families. Alexander Solzhenitsyn
has donated all his royalties from
the Gulag Archipelago for the
fund's financial support.
Alexander Ginzburg's open
opposition to the Soviet govern-
ment's repressive policies began
in the late 1950's when he edited
the first samizdat (typewritten)
literary journal, Sintaxix, which
contained poems by young
Moscow and Leningrad writers.
For this he was arrested in 1960
and sentenced to two years at
forced labor. Upon his release,
Ginzburg was forbidden to
resume his studies in journalism
at Moscow University and had
great difficulty in finding work.
He eventually took on a series of
odd jobs, including cleaning
IN 1966, he came to the atten-
tion of the world press when he
was arrested for compiling a
White Book on the celebrated
trial of writers Andrei Sinyavsky
and Yuli Daniel. In January
1967, the KGB arrested Ginzburg
and three other dissidents in a
trial that attracted a great deal of
international attention. The
"trial of the four," as it became
known, resulted in Ginzburg's
second term of imprisonment. He
was sentenced to five years of
strict regime labor camp and was
released in 1972, emerging from
prison with ulcers and other ail-
ments. He was not allowed to live
in Moscow and settled in Tarusa,
approximately 70 miles from the
capital. It was at this time that
Ginzburg met Alexander
Solzhenitsyn, and the two men
created the Russian Social Fund.
In 1976, Ginzburg further ex-
panded his human rights ac-
tivities by becoming one of the
founding members of the Moscow
Helsinki Watch Group, a
citizens' organization committed
to monitoring the Soviet Union's
adherence to the humanitarian
provisions of the Helsinki
Accords. The group issued a
number of thoroughly researched
studies on Soviet human rights
violations, and Ginzburg helped
prepare several of these, in-
cluding an exhaustive studv on

UJA Background Report:
Soviet Jewry
GOOD NEWS: From January to June 1979, approximately
29,000 Jews emigrated from the USSR. This figure represents
an increase of about 2,000 per month over 1978.
Indications are that 50,000 will leave this year. Some feel
this rate will continue in 1980 although Soviet unpre-
dictability makes all forecasts uncertain.
BAD NEWS. 1. The Israeli government is sending 20,000
affidavits each month, each one for the use of two or three
persons. Very conservative estimates put the number of visa
applications at 100,000 per year. The figure may be much
higher. Therefore, the number granted visas is only a fraction of
those wishing to leave.
2. This year there are new restrictions on emigration: All
young men eligible for draft are denied this right. Young men
and women with university degrees cannot apply for visas until
they complete three years of work in their respective fields.
GOOD NEWS: Most recently, the following POCs have
been released: Mark Dymshitz; Alexander Ginzburg; Eduard
Kuznetzov; Valentin Moroz; Mark Nashpitz (still in Moscow
waiting for exit visa); Boris Penson; Isaac Shkolnik; Boris Tsit-
lonok (still in Moscow waiting for exit visa); Georgi Vins; Israel
Zalmanson; Wolf Zalmanson.
BAD NEWS: 1. Of the Leningrad Trial POCs, three are
still suffering in Soviet jails: Uri Federov; Josef Mendelevitch;
Alexi Murzhenko.
2. There are at least 16 known Jewish prisoners serving
sentences (families in Israel report a much higher figure but the
Soviet clampdown on information blocks verification). These
include: Ida Nudel. Vladimir Slepak, Anatoly Sharansky. All
three are in precarious health; Sharansky is reportedly suffering
severe headaches, high fevers and sight loss.
GOOD NEWS: Recently, there has been a small increase in
the number of exit visas granted.
BAD NEWS: Thousands of refuseniks have bean waiting
for exit visas for as long as a decade. Long-term refuseniks
continue to be refused.
BAD NEWS: 1. The USSR ia the largest producer and die-

Ben Greenbaum, president of
the Tampa Jewish Federation,
has been elected to serve a one-
year term as a member of the
board of directors of the Council
of Jewish Federations. The
Ben Greenbaum
election took place in Montreal,
Canada, at the 48th meeting of
the General Assembly, the

and Canada.
Established in 1932, the
Council serves as a national
instrument to strengthen the
work and the impact of Jewish
Federations through leadership
in developing programs to meet
changing needs in the Jewish
community; through the ex-
change of successful experiences
to assure the most effective com-
munity services; through estab-
lishing guidelines for fundraising
and operation; and through joint
national planning and action on
common purposes dealing with
local, regional, national and
international needs.

Alexander Ginzburg
The Newspaper article read, "The agreement was
this; in exchange for two Soviet spies in U.S.
custody, the Soviets would release several
dissidents, including Alexander Ginzburg, and their
families." It concluded, "Today the spies are in
Russia. So is Ginzburg's wife, mother, two sons and
foster son, Sergei."
Fascinating. What an exchange! The Ginzburg
family will not leave the Soviet Union without their
foster son who has been denied an exit visa. Does
this freeing of five dissidents last April 29, indicate a
move to greater human decency?
"Not so," cries Ginzburg who is a convert of the
Russian Orthodox faith. "It is just not possible that
this regime will become more liberal," he said and
adds, "without internal and external pressures on
the Soviet Union to force such change." Ginzburg
describes the prison camps, a veteran of them for
years. He tells of the effects of prisoner malnutrition
and prison diseases which many of the dissidents
contract: stomach ulcers, tuberculosis, hyper-
tension, kidney disorders and liver ailments are
inevitable for them.
JEWISH sensitivity to human rights runs deep.
Alexander Ginzburg as non-Jew, maintains a very
special relationship to the Jewish people. At the age
of 16 (a dissident even then, young Ginzburg chose
his mother's name, who was Jewish) for his own, as a
form of protesting Soviet anti-Semitism. In the
Soviet Union, this choice made him a target of anti-
Semitism and harassment his whole life.
Ginzburg brings with him a message for us Jews.
His life is a statement of protest against a regime
which intrinsically denies and subverts human rights
within its borders. The choices afforded us in our
country, those of choosing a religion and living as
believing members of that religious community are
ones which go unquestioned and undisupted in our
daily thoughts. The Jews of Russia who would live as
Jews and those who seek to leave the Soviet Union
because of the denial of those basic human rights
that continue to plague Soviet society demand our
attention and commitment in aiding their (our ? !)
B'nai B'rith Hulel Foundation

Putting the Two Together
Philip M. Klutznick's is the third Carter ad-
ministration appointment of a prominent Jew to a
top position within the President's inner circle. As
the nominee to succeed Juanita Kreps as Secretary of
Commerce, Klutznick will join Robert Strauss and
Sol Linowitz in major presidential jobs.
Mr. Carter thus strengthens the impression he
made with an authorized address the other night by
Vice President Mondale before an Israel Bond
gathering in honor of Sam Rothberg.
There, Mondale reaffirmed the President's vow
that he is in favor of a unified Jerusalem open to all
religions, that he unequivocally opposes a new and
separate Palestinian state on the West Bank, and
that he will never deal with the PLO so long as the
PLO refuses to accept UN Res. 242 and 338 and to
recognize the nationhood of Israel.
Judging by Mr. Carter's statements in the
recent past, and by the actions of his State Depart-
ment, these reaffirmations of principles he enun-
ciated during his 1976 campaign seem in fact to be
brand new positions. In effect, the President's words
have not seemed to be where his mouth is.
We trust that Mr. Klutznick, a longtime
distinguished Jewish community leader, will from
time to time in his new job help the President put the
two together.

HAIFA News Item:
"Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat seeks to persuade
millionaire Shaul Eisenberg to
assist in the development of the
Sinai and to invest in the
establishment of science-based
industried in Egypt."
Who is Shaul Eisenberg?
Though the name is recognized at
oncy by most Israelis, very little
is known about him. He is un-
doubtedly the wealthiest Jew in
Israel, and also the country's
leading mystery man. He has
never consented to be in-
terviewed by the press, and what
follows has been pieced together
from many sources.
HE WAS apparently born in
Germany in 1922. Since his
parents were of Polish
background, the family was
expelled from Germany in 1938,
and the 16 year-old boy struck
out for himself. He found his way
to the Far East, secured a haven
in China during the war and
worked hard. He had keen
commercial instincts, and for a
song acquired enormous
quantities of surplus and
abandoned military supplies and
junk. He set up headquarters in
Tokyo, and it was not long before
he had converted his junk into
Eisenberg moved into the
industrial field. He harnessed
cheap Oriental labor to European
scientific and technological know-
how, and his companies soon
began to flood European markets
with a wide variety of inex-
pensive novelty items.
Ilu married a Japanese girl,
who embraced Judaism, and they
raised four daughters.

His commercial interests
expanded. He opened offices in
London, Zurich and New York
and flew constantly from one to
the other, and elsewhere in his
private Boeing plane. By now, he
was engaged in major operations

banking, and later in nuclear

Tokyo Olympics. It was not his
first contact with Israel, but it

HE BEGAN to visit Israel
more and more often, opened an
office in Tel Aviv, and built
himself a lovely home in Savyon.
His first financial interests in
Israel were small. He bought a
bankrupt company, rescued
another faltering concern and
purchased what looked like
worthless land, but his instincts
were usually (not always) sound.
Today he is the largest single
investor in Israel.
His local interests are in
electronics, textiles, real estate
hotels and many other diversified
areas. One estimate is that he has
invested $65 million in Israel. He

Jean Pierre-Bloch is head of Lica,
is worried about the situation.
There is already a high level of
unemployment in France in
the region of 1,500,000 and he
fears that if this economic
malaise increases there may be a
tendency to blame the Jewish
people. He points out that his
father is also very worried by the
sharp increase in the number of
new books lauding Nazism and
racialism. Some young French-
men appear to be attracted to
some forms of neo-Nazism.
Young Pierre-Bloch is
pessimistic about relations with
Israel. "1 am a Deputy for Paris,
I am a Zionist, a Jew but com-
pletely French. But I also see
that French policy is made by
petrol. Arab oil has a strange
hold on us."
THE MURDER of Pierre
Goldman by unknown assailants
caused particular concern to the
French Jews. This was in some
ways paradoxical. Goldman,
though a revolutionary, had also
admitted robbing banks though
he denied committing murder. He
could hardly be described as a
symbol of French Jew-y.
Yet there were other more
praiseworthy features in his
complex personality which at-
tracted some young French Jews,
notably his vehement support for
Israel. Thus many French Jews
saw his murder as a deliberate
attack on themselves and on
, Israel.

Bassam Shakaa of Nablus was
jailed Sunday by Israeli army
authorities. The mayor of
Nablus, an influential Palestinian
leader, is a oublic opoonent of
Israel's settlements policy.
Shakaa's arrest touched off
angry orotests in Judea and
Samaria. At the same time, at a
Cabinet meeting Sunday, Israel
adooted new ground-rules calling
for added Jewish settlements and
the enlargement of existing
settlements in Judea and
Samaria, as well as on the Golan
Heights and in Gaza.
ALSO SUNDAY, the Cabinet
chose a new site for the Elon
Moreh settlement evacuated as a
consequence of an Oct. 22
Suoreme Court ruling which
called Elon Moreh illegal. The
new site is a few miles from the

Friday evening, Nov. 30, will be a very special occasion for
Congregation Schaarai Zedek. On that date, the temple will be
marking its 85th anniversary with Sabbath Services full of
nostalgia and memories and a gourmet Oneg Shabbat to beat all
Oneg Shabbats.
Mrs. Herbert Friedman, who is chairman of the evening,
has informed us that Rabbi Frank Sundheim and temple
president, Mrs. Eliot Osiason, have planned a special service in
which Mrs. David Zielonka (wife of their beloved, late rabbi) and
many of the past presidents of the temple will participate. The
wives of the past presidents will be honored by serving at the
Oneg Shabbat.
Mrs. Harold Sutker, who is known city-wide for her
gourmet cooking classes, will lead other members of the
congregation in baking numerous confections for a most
"mouth-watering" Oneg Shabbat. Mrs. Mort Goldman is in
charge of publicity, and Mrs. Mark Shine is designing the in-
vitation to go out to all congregants. Obviously, this will be an
evening not to miss and one that will be long remembered with
fondness and with smiles in the minds and hearts of the
members of Congregation Schaarai Zedek.
Dr. Martin Uman was the recent recipient of the
"Distinguished Faculty Award" at a Blue Key (an honorary
leadership society) banquet at the University of Florida in
Gainesville. The award was given in recognition of time devoted
to improving the quality of the Department of Electrical
Engineering at the university; for his literary publications that
are regarded as classics in the area of plasma physics and
lightning. Dr. Uman is recognized as one of the world's foremost
authorities in lightning research and is involved with the
Aeronautics and Space Administration in the design of a
lightning experiment for a flight to Jupiter.
Dr. Uman, a native Tampan (residing in Gainesville now),
is the son of Mrs. Morris Uman. He and his wife Dorit have
three children, Mara, Jon, and Derek.
Our heartiest congratulations to Sheldon and JoHanna

have an older sister. Cam, 11 years old. Proud grandparents are

Two good friends, Terrill Hameroff and Jane Ketover were
both interested in going into business, and so they did
together. They just opened a shop called "Lighting Unlimited"
(located on 8540 N. Dale Mabry). Terrill and Jane carry a huge
variety of lamps, lighting fixures, chandeliers, track lighting,
and beautiful accessories such as mini and verticle blinds, woven
wood shades and etageres. These women, who both reside in
North Tampa, felt that there was a real need for this kind of
showroom in their area of town. "Up to now, if you wanted to
purchase a lamp in North Tampa, you either had to go to a
department store or get involved in a massive furniture store."
Now there is a convenient and well-stocked showroom for any of
you interested in lighting fixtures (and some extras with which
to give your rooms that total look) to visit. Drop in and see
Terrill and Jane!
We just heard about a most creative idea that the Young
Judea group of Congregation Kol Ami (this includes ninth
throuth twelfth graders) came up with to raise money for their
group and with which to meet their financial allocations. This
chapter (called the Neshicot Chapter) has started a service called
"Nosh with Neshicot." Ina Levine and Karen Chester directed a
work session for the kids to learn how to set up and clean up for
parties on Oneg Shabbats. They trained them in how to at-
tractively arrange trays of food, how to efficiently re-fill emp-
tying trays, how to set up a bar, and how to clean up after a
party. Now this group is ready to hire themselves out for par-
ties, receptions and Oneg Shabbats for as many as 40 or 50
guests. They charge by the hour, depending on the size of the

are members of Congregation Schaarai Zedek, where Kaki is a
member of the Sisterhood, too. Also, Kaki has quickly become
an active member of ORT. Both of the Cowens love sailing and
hope to really take advantage of it in Florida. In no time at all,

"I call heaven and earth as witnesses, that I have set before
you Life and Death, the Blessing and the Curse; therefore
choose thou Life in order that thou mayest Live, both thou and
thy Children." (Deuteronomy 30:19)
Our rabbis taught: Once, the government decreed that
Israel should abolish all schools and refrain from all teachings.
R. Akiba, however, continued to teach the Torah. He was asked,
" Akiba, are you not afraid of the decree and its death penalty?"
He replied, "I will tell you a parable: 'Once a sly fox was
walking along the bank of a river and saw a school of fish
darting to and fro. He said to them, "From what are you
fleeing?" The fish answered, "From nets which men are casting.
He said to them, "Come up on to the dry land, and let us dwell
together in safety." The fish replied. "You are not sly but a fool!
For if we are afraid when we are in our life-giving element, how
much more so if we were in a death-element, on dry land." So
also it is with our people. If when we establish schools and teach
Torah, that which is our life-element, we are under great danger
from those that wish to destsoy us, how much more so, if we
neglect it." IBeruchot 61b)
WHO ARE the true guardians of Israel; not the Senators or
the chief of the City Guard, but the teachers who guide the new
generations. For it is written: "Because your fathers forsook me
and kept not my teachings "Jeremiah 16:11) The L'd says,
"Would that they had deserted Me but kept My Teachings, for
if they had occupied themselves thus, the Light which is in My
Torah would have brought them back to Me." (Pesuchim 120b)
The function of the teacher in Judaism is positive, to in-
culcate an active moral attitude which would so influence public
and private life that the need of a guardian would disappear.
Knowledge is the true purpose or end of the life of all Israelites.
Righteousness and knowledge, both in pursuit of and in the end
product, are intertwined with one another.
In A both 6, we read 48 qualifications one must have in
order to acquire knowledge. Here are some of the major ones:
By audible study, distinct pronounciation, reverence,
cheerfulness, attaching oneself to colleagues, discussion with
students, loving mankind, not boasting of one's learning, being
composed during study, by asking, hearing and adding thereto,
learning with the object of teaching. (A both 3)
RAB noticed that a reader (Chazan) went before the Amode
and recited, "He causes the wind to blow," immediately a wind
blew strongly and when he recited, "He causes the rain to fall,"
rain fell abundantly. Rab asked him: "What is your oc-
cupation?" "I am a teacher of children," he replied, "I teach the
children of the poor as well as those of the rich, if the poor cannot
pay the tuition, I teach them free. I possess a fish pond,, if a
child is lazy, I bribe him by giving him some of the fish as an
incentive, and thus win him over to the study." (Ta'anit 24a)
IN JUDAISM, education covered the whole life, from birth
to death. It included not only the training of the mind but also of
the body. Amongst subjects to be taught is included swimming
and even care of the body in reference to cleanliness.
"Cleanliness is next to Godliness," Physical culture was
regarded as a necessary condition of all mental training.
The chief end of an education is the development of the
power of thought by the gaining of various knowledge. By-
means of instruction, the teacher's mind acts on the student,
causing him to think. One of the major functions of a teacher is
to activiate the mind of the student, then to channel his thought
in to a systematic method of learning.
The teacher must adapt his teachings to each student's
mind as being individual, and sometimes even the method used
must differ with the individual student. The education of the
student depends on himself, for the greater part of human
thought and knowledge is but approximate and not as absolute
truth. No two minds concerning the same things are the same.
What one learns depends on one's own thoughts and
persistent efforts. With constant exercise of the mind thru
study, thought becomes a habit that is grasped with strength
and maintained. The end of all education is reason (Sefer
Longing, I sought thy presence L'd with my whole heart
did I call and pray, and going out toward thee, I found thee
coming to me on the way. IJudak Ha-Levi).

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
TOLEDOT when Isaac was 60 years old, Rebekah bore him
twin sons. The eldest was born ruddy and hairy, and was named
Esau. The younger one held on to his brother's heel as he was
born, and they called him Jacob.
The boys grew up and Esau was a cunning hunter who
loved outdoor life. Jacob was a quiet person, serious and
studious. Esau was Isaac's favorite, but Rebekah loved Jacob
One day Jacob cooked a thick soup. Esau, who had just
returned from hunting, said: "I am starved. Feed me, my
Jacob had thought about Esau's carefree attitude, and how
Esau had neglected all his responsibilities. So he said: "Sell me
your birthright first, and then I will feed you." (With Esau's
birthright, Jacob would be the spiritual leader of his people.)
Esau agreed and swore to exchange his birthright for a bowl
of soup.
When Isaac was old and almost blind, he called Esau to
give him a father's blessing. But Rebekah disguised Jacob as
Esau and Isaac blessed Jacob instead.
When Esau found out what had happened, he hated Jacob
and plotted to kill him. So Rebekah ordered Jacob to flee to
Laban, his uncle. (Genesis 26:1928:9)

seminator of anti-Semitic material in the world. Its campaign of
slander, conducted in the mass media and in publications, is a
serious threat to the security and status of Jews in the USSR.
Expressions of anti-Semitism include the vilification of the
Jewish people, the Jewish religion and the State of Israel, in-
creased discrimination against Jews in admission to higher
education facilities, employment and promotion.
2. This year, in a single six-month period, five Jews who
had been granted exit visas to Israel were arrested: the highest
number for that period of time since the early 1970s.
3. Recently, the "Supreme Court" of the Ukraine affirmed
the death sentences for four Jews convicted last August of
"economic crimes." Of the total of 54 defendants in the secret
trial. 48are Jewish. ANALYSI8
Despite the increase in emigration and the release of POCs,
on balance the overall picture is not as encouraging as it would
Although the Soviet Union has made some "gestures" in
the area of human rights, they fall far short of the goal of
freedom for all Soviet Jews. Based on the evidence of heightened
anti-Semitic activity and continued hardship for refuseniks and
prisoners as well as the new and ominous restriction on the
emigration of young Jews, it is clear that there has been no real
softening of Soviet policy toward Jews.
The Jackson-Vanik Amendment is the key to any
possibility of continuing or increasing the flow of Soviet Jewish
emigration. This year particularly, the Russians need trade
credits to bolster their failing economy and to modernize their
technology. Why this year?
1. A severe winter resulted in massive damage to grain
crops in the USSR, which must turn to the U.S. for S3 billion in
2. Russia is experiencing its first energy crisis, the result of
an unforeseen slowdown in coal production (due to inefficiency,
worker reluctance); reduced oil supplies from Iran and
Afghanistan; decreased production from older oil fields in the
south, and limited production in new fields due to lack of funds
and equipment. (For the first time, the Soviets are cutting back
their oil supplies to Eastern Bloc countries.)
3. Immediate need for modern technology to upgrade in-
dustrial production is forcing the Soviets to seek trade arrange-
ments with the U.S.
4. The ruble is worth nothing on the international market,
seriously restricting Russian buying power. The Olympics in
Moscow in 1980, coupled with favorable trade credits from the
U.S., will make it possible for the Soviets to trade in foreign
currency, particularly dollars.
On July 18, the National Conference on Soviet Jewry issued
the following statement of policy, which received support from
virtually all sectors of the American Jewish community:
"The Jackson-Vanik Amendment to the Trade Act of 1974
provides an adequate framework for encouraging further Soviet
performance in the area of emigration and should not be
modified. Should the level of emigration continue to improve
and should the Soviet government now free the remaining POCs
and allow refuseniks and their relatives to emigrate, and should
President Carter receive the assurances that meet the test of the
existing waiver provision of the law, including implementation
of emigration procedures free from harassment, the USSR could
receive the trade benefits it seeks on the annual basis now
provided by the law."
this would mean doubling their
less than S6 billion in aid an-
nually to f 13 billion by the end of
the 1980's.
Too many people are deceived
into thinking of the Food and
Agriculture Organization as
another one of those multi-
tudinous offices making up the
federal bureaucracy in Washing-
ton. The FAO is not an American
agency; it is an agency of the
United Nations.

THE SPECIAL problems of
the female alcoholic are dealt
with by Women For Sobriety.
Founded by Dr. Jean Kirk-
patrick, a recovered alcoholic, the
worldwide organization based in
Quakertown, Pa; helps women
achieve a sense of self worth and
promotes the ideas of positive
"I And women alcoholics need
different things than men," says
Dr. Kirkpatrick. "Most are
humiliated by their drinking and
they need a forum where they can
come together to discuss how
they can enrich their everyday
living once they are on their way
to sobriety. Women should admit
to their alcoholism and then go
from there. Our group is
beginning to attract a good
number of Jewish alcoholic
women. One of the first women
to be supportive of our group was
a Jewish physician."
Today, women account for|
fully half of the total population
of problem drinkers. In a paper
presented at a National Council
on Alcoholism forum in
Washington, D.C., the team of
Blume and Dropkin zeroed in on
the Jewish alcoholic woman and
found that the problem of her
Jewishness intensified the stigma
of being an alcoholic. They
studied the case histories of three
Jewish alcoholic women and
examined possible approaches to
solving their problems.
ALCOHOLISM may well be
one of modern American Jewry's
best-hidden secrets. One reason is
that Jews, like other minorities,
are notorious for not wanting to
display their problems. A more
significant reason is that most
Jews do not go to treatment
centers for help; thus their
numbers do not show up on
general studeis.
This lack of statistical in-
formation leads other Jews to
question the severity of the
problem within their community.
But if Jews don't go to
treatment centers, where do they
go for therapy?
Many go to private
psychiatrists and private clinics.
And their treatment depends on
how informed and how sensitive
the doctor is. If he is neither, the
Jewish alcoholic will probably be

many cases, either to protect

(Antabuse is a deterrent drug
that produces copious vomiting if

Dropkin has been told of one St.
Louis clinic with a large Jewish
caseload which routinely uses
this method of treatment.
If there is anything positive to
be said for such methodology it is
this: at least the patient is
receiving the proper treatment,
even though his disease is being
hidden from him. In any number
of other cases a potpourri of

The Rabbinical Assembly recently issued its
latest version of the Jewish marriage contract,
combining the legalities and mystique of age-old
tradition with the changing demands and sen-
sitivities of modern times. While contemporary
American marital contracts which establish areas
of financial and domestic responsibilities are
relatively new, ketuboth have been the in-
struments of Jewish marriages for thousands of
The ketubah is a religious document, designed
to protect the woman from financial distress in
case of divorce or husband's death, and to allow
her financial independence, if desired, while
married. Although once among the most ad-
vanced familial arrangements in the world, the
ketubah became a frozen formula, more important
for its presence than its contents. The Rabbinical
Assembly, Conservative Judaism's rabbinical
arms, hopes that this modernized ketubah will
reinvest meaning in the traditional form.
