will attend a buffet luncheon,
meet Mrs. Hassenfeld and
discuss the present and future

Jewry. ^
Mrs. Linick, hosting the
luncheon at her home, at 4611
San Miguel, is co-chairperson
with Joan Saul of the Pacesetters
Division which includes this
annual event. Both women have
been active in the Women's
Division for many years. The
invitations have been designed
by Bobbe Karpay.
The co-chairpersons note that
Mrs. Hassenfeld is a dynamic
leader of the American Jewish
community, an articulate spokes-
person, now playing an in-
creasing leadership role in Jewish
community campaign activities.
A NATIVE of Philadelphia
Sylvia Hassenfeld
now living in Providence, R.I.,
Mrs. Hassenfeld is a member of
the executive committee of the
United Israel Appeal and
American Jewish Joint Dis-
tribution Committee and is chair-
man of JDC's Relief-in-Transit
As past chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal National
Women's Division, Mrs. Hassen-
feld led the first mission in its
history to visit Auschwitz.
Perhaps her visit to Auschwitz
reinforced her views on the need
for Israel to educate its im-
migrant children early, for she
sponsored a pre-kindergarten
school in Natanya, a project of
the UJA Israel Education Fund.
Tampa's women may get some
strong hints on how things are
done on a community level, too.
Mrs. Hassenfeld is a civic,
cultural and philanthropic leader
in Providence.
She is a past president and
honorary president of the
Women's Division of the Jewish
Federation of Rhode Island and a
member of the board of the
Providence Chapter of Hadassah
and the Miriam Hospital
Women's Association.
Hassenfeld is a sculptor and
patron of the arts, a member of
the League of the Arts Com-
mittee of the State of Rhode
Island and of the Women's
Association of the Rhode Island
School of Design Museum.
She is also the mother of three
children. Her late husband,
Merrill L. Hassenfeld, also was
active in Jewish affairs, having
served as UJA honorary national

three accused Nazi war criminals, Kurt Lischka, who was
head of the Gestapo in Paris during World War II;
Herbert Martin Hagen and Ernest Einrichsohn.
Scheffler stressed that his statement was meant
neither to clear nor to incriminate the defendants, but was
based on his research. He said the help given by French
institutions was indispensable to the Germans in their
efforts to liquidate Jews. As an example, he noted that in
one wave of arrests 2,500 French policemen took part.
SCHEFFLER, who also testified for five hours, has
not yet said if he has information on whether the defen-
dants knew what would be the final fate of the Jews they
sent to concentration camps. This may be the decisive

Larry Wasserberger, who was bom and raised in Tampa,
recently moved back and has formed a terrific new band. This
band, called the Tampa Bay Brass, can play all of the popular
Jewish tunes plus a variety of standard dance and listening
The Tampa Bay Brass has been playing together for one year
now and is made up of five members including: Larry
Wasserberger, who plays all reed instruments and is band
leader; Phil Lopez, trumpet; Gary Webb, guitar; Greg
Williams, drums; and Rufus Beecham, bass guitar.
Larry teaches school during
the day and stays busy trying to
drum up business for his band in
his spare time. He has a degree
in music from the University of
South Florida and spent the first
2'/* years after graduation
traveling and playing in clubs
and large hotels. He is the cousin
of the assistant executive
director of Federation, Abe
Davia-Wasserberaer. So if you
have a party, a Bar Bat Mitz-
vah, or a wedding coming up,
contact Larry Wasserberger for a
great, fresh sound in music.
Four generations celebrated with Mindy Beth and her
mother Randi Grier on the occasion ot Mindy's sixth birthday
party held Jan. 6 at Lowry Park. Twenty-four children were
entertained by enjoying the rides and visiting the animals on
display at this marvelous park.
Included in Mindy's guest list were her grandparents. Dr. and
Mrs Arnold Grier, her jrreat-grandparents. Mr. and Mrs. Paul
Godell and Mr. and Mrs. Herman Grier, her uncle and aunt, Ken
and Lynn Grier, and her uncle David Grier, who was home for
vacation from Colorado Medical School in Denver. We know
that everyone had a terrific time, and we want to wish Mindy a
very happy sixth birthday.

and fun January meeting on the 16th at the home of Ina Levine.
Following the general business, Ina instructed those in at-

What does it all mean?
"It means," says Alter, "if
Tampa is to continue to help re-
settle Russian Immigrants,
educate our youth, serve the
needs of our elderly, provide rec-
reational programs and work for
a solid, healthy Jewish com-
munity, we must be willing to
respond with more dollars than
$620,000. The $600,000 in 1974 is
worth 80 percent less in real
dollars in 1980.
Now, that might be tolerable if
there was no inflation, or services
remained the same, or Tampa's
Jewish population stayed static
and Jewish needs abroad had not
changed. But that just isn't so!
An accompanying chart (cam-
paign comparative statistics)
shows that Omaha, Nebraska,
with a Jewish population of
6,500, reported 2,840 con-
tributors giving $1,666,000, or a
per capita of $256. Tampa, with
an estimated population of 7,000,
reported $597,970 from 1,178
contributors in 1978, the year the
comparison was made. That was
a per capita figure of $85.00.
Omaha was first on the list,
Tampa 13th.
OF COURSE, it is recognized
that Omaha is an established city
with a Jewish population that
probably has not altered
dramatically in recent years.
Tampa's face has changed in
recent years. New families arrive
on the scene weekly.
However, Tampa is starting to
put it together. Good things are
happening. This newspaper is one
good thing. Its emergence into
the Tampa area in the past
months has provided a tool of
communication for our com-
munity. The Tampa Jewish Fed-
eration has provided the means
for coordinating and supporting
the various agencies and intro-
ducing new services as needed.
Since 1974, the Chai Dial-A-
Bus program, the State Hillel
Foundation, the Chabad House,
Russian Resettlement and Tay
Sachs testing service have all
been added to the Tampa Jewish
Federation list of projects. Many
additional programs have been
provided for the benefit of the
entire community over the past
few years.
Other agencies supported by
the Tampa Jewish Federation
funds, showing 1974 allocations
in relation to the 1979 allocations
are: Jewish Community Center,
$41,785 and $68,866; Tampa
Jewish Social Service, $16,000
and $54,500; Hillel School, $2,500
and $25,000; B'nai B nth Youth
Organization, unchanged at $500,
and the Tampa Jewish Fed-
eration operation, $81,251 and
$89,690. (See Table of
Allocations. 1974-1979).
IN 1974, the Tampa Jewish
Federation was able to provide
$427,029 to UJA. The 1979 figure
dipped to $361,133, resulting
from increased local needs.
"It's vital that we increase the
overseas allocation this year,"
says Gary Alter, executive
director of the Tampa Jewish
Federation. "The needs of Israel

we have in the past. We are
facing a serious situation of not
being able to meet the minimum
needs of our agencies, let alone
provide for much needed ex-
panded services.
"IN A WAY, it boils down to
this," Alter said.
"Are we going to be able to
provide for continued growth and
necessary services both here and
overseas., through meaningful
and responsible giving?"
That's a soul-searching
question each member of our
community must answer in-

Don't Pass the Buck
At the trial in Cologne, West Germany, for Kurt
Lischka, who was the Gestapo head in Paris during
World War II and two other accused Nazi war
criminals, a West Berlin professor said that his
research has shown that the Nazis could not have
carried out the "final solution" of French Jewry
without the complicity of a large number of French
officials. The professor, Wolfgang Scheffler of the
Free University of West Berlin, noted that in one
wave of arrests of Jews 2,500 French policemen took
The complicity of many French officials is well-
nown. It has recently been depicted in several fine
!ms made in France itself. The French, and other
Western Europeans under occupation, may not have
joined in the actual murders as did many from the
Baltics who became war criminals, but they certainly
helped in finding and rounding up Jews to be
deported to the death camps.
There is plenty of guilt to be shared for the
Holocaust from that of commission to that of
omission by many world leaders of that era.
But the complicity of others cannot be used by
war criminals as a defense of their own crimes. They
committed these crimes against humanity, and they
must pay for them. They cannot now say they should
be freed because others helped them.______________
Normalization is Attitude
There has been some concern expressed in Israel
over Egypt's alleged coolness toward normalization
of relations with Israel. One reason is that Egypt
reportedly wants to staff its embassy in Tel Aviv
with only five diplomats, much less than Israel would
like to send to Cairo when diplomatic relations of-
ficially begin in February.
But normalization is more than just diplomatic
representation. It is attitude. Take Prime Minister
Menachem Begin's visit to Aswan Jan. 7 where he
met with Egyptian President Sadat. Remember the
hullabaloo over Begin's previous visits to Egypt, as
well as Sadat's trips to Israel?
There is little of that now. The visits are
becoming routine. This routineness is not only seen
in the Begin* Sadat meetings but also in the ex-
changes between other Israeli and Egyptian officials,
and will soon be commonplace between average
Israelis and Egyptians.
Sure, there will still be plenty of hard negotiations
and some tough talk over the question of estab-
lishing autonomy for the Palestinian Arabs on the
West Bank and Gaza Strip. But while this will be
going on, Israelis and Egyptians, officials and non-
officials, will be going back and forth between the
two countries.
Khomeini Stealing Wealth
Of Many Iranian Jews
TEL AVIV (JTA) Kol Israel Radio said that
the regime of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini is con-
fiscating the property of wealthy Iranian Jews worth
. my millions of dollars. According to the report, the
pi .tarty of 54 Jewish families was expropriated after they
were charged with collaborating with the regime of the
deposed Shah.
AMONG THOSE to lose their property is a well-
known Jewish industrialist who was formerly a member of
the Iranian parliament, and the late Habit) Elkanian, a
Jewish leader executed by the Islamic regime shortly after
Khomeini came to power for alleged collaboration with die
Shah and for maintaining contacts with Israel.
The property of Elkanian's sister was also con-
fiscated, Kol Israel said. The radio reporter did not dis-
close the source of his information but said it was reliable.

mediate cash for silver, gold and

Also listed in the "highest
prices paid" category was an
expressly-stated demand for
what the advertisement called

intriguing that this category
listed the war decorations of no
other country, especially not the

shows in general is a sentimental
yearning for memorabilia of the
absolutist National Socialist
THE implications are
frightening Still, we must
examine them soberly. It is more
than the mementos for which
people show a sentimental
yearning. It is the political and
military quick-fix characteristic
of the Hitler era that so many of
us seem to want these days to
solve our own problems without
an awareness of the cost in in-
dividual freedoms we would be
called upon to pay for such a
If Nazi items and German war
medals are at a premium, can the
"rejuvescence" of the Nazi jack-
boot be far behind'.' That is a
question with which the Im-
migration and Naturalization
Service, with varying degrees of
steadfastness, has been wrestling
for some time now under the
prodding of Rep. Elizabeth
HoltzmanlD. N.Y.I.
The crude fact is that there are
still living in our midst tens of
thousands of former German
refugees, American citizens who
were once the victims of the
quick fix Nazis and their anti-
Semitic madness.
BUT THERE are also living in
our midst hundreds upon hun-
dreds of those "heroic" tor-
mentors of their Jewish and other
victims for whose war medals and
other Nazi memorabilia the
Bradenton, Fla., coin investment
firm will be happy to pay a
premium price. It is not that
these beasts sneaked into the
country after World War II to
hide from the forces of retribution
let loose at Nuremberg.
It is that the hush-hush "Oper-
ation Paperclip." secretly
organized by some American
officials after the war. instructed
the INS to look the other way as
these beasts were permitted to
enter our shores. We, the con-
querors of National Socialist
ideologies and their leaders,
became their principal defenders,
their architects of sanctuary.
It is this schizoprenic reoi-
politik that the INS began to
pursue under Holtxman's
prodding which encouraged and
led to the strengthening of the
work of Martin Mendelsohn,
deputy director of the Justice
Department's Criminal Division
have some positive results in his
pursuit of former Nazis hiding in
the U.S. And that was enough for
the old "Paperclip" boys to let
out a contract on him. In what
must be counted as one of the
shabbiest power plays on Capitol
Hill in a long time. Mendelsohn
has just been fired by Philip
Heymann, his superior in the
Criminal Division, on the basis
that Mendelsohn was having a
personal feud with Walter
Rockier, a former prosecutor at
There is little doubt that
Mendelsohn, in his two years
with the Special Investigations
Unit, had become a super hitman
of ex-Nazis living in the U.S.
How could he have offended
Rockier, the special units
By being successful, of course,
far more than Rockier, himself,
whose record as director has been
less than sterling and whose
commitment to the program, for
all of his Nuremberg credentials,
is subject to profound question.
But the internal politics of this
struggle are less significant than
the end result. Once again, the
"Paperclip" boys have won.
WHAT I find so obnoxious in
all of this is that I have yet to
hear a peep out of the press or the
general community deploring the
firing of Mendelsohn. In a world
placing such high value on Nazi
items and German war medals,
this should come as no surprise.
But what if this were a
question involving Castro-type
criminals secretly in our midst
who offended the sensibilities of a
powerful Latin community here?
The slavish press obsequiousness
to Latin power would devise a
flood of lurid headlines decrying
the injustice of it all, and the
Latins themselves might be
throwing bombs.
And what about the Black
community? Especially, I have in
mind the firing last year of
Andrew Young, which promptly
became a cause celebre ranging
from a chilling outburst of frank
Black anti-Semitism to the
practice of amateurish inter-
national diplomacy by the likes of
Jesse Jackson and the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference.
I see no such equivalent furor
in the Black community at the
firing of Mendelsohn: Or in any
other community in the nation
which joined in the attack on the
Young firing as an attack on civil
ISNT THE Mendelsohn firing
at the hands of encrusted Nad
prototypes on Capitol HOI (and I
don't mean Philip Heymann him-
self he merely did the dirty
work) at least as much an attack
on civil liberties?
It is in fact more so. But the
case of Martin Mendelsohn has to
do with a Jew. or so it super-
ficially seems, and therefore who
cares? It has to do with Nazis,
and they never really did much
harm to anybody except to Jews
who probably deserved it. Isn't
that so?

The Jewish Floridian of Tampa
Reader Examines George Ball Controversy
A native of Tampa and a
graduate of Georgetown
University's School of Foreign
Service, Jim Gardner is a free-
lance writer in Washington, D.C.
Formerly the features editor of
the Georgetown Voice, Jim has
written extensively on in-
ternational affairs and on the
arts. He has also interviewed
author Tom Wolfe, playwright
Edward Albee, actor Peter
O'Toole, and former Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger. Jim
hopes to work and travel in both
Israel and Europe. He is a
member of Temple Schaari
Zedek, where he was both a Bar
Mitzvah and confirmand. Jim
was nominated for a Rhodes
Scholarship in 1978.
In last week's article "Ball
Would Punish an Intransigent
Israel." writer Victor M.
Bienstock maintains that former
Under Secretary of State George
Ball's severe appraisals of Israeli
policies towards the Arabs
represent a viewpoint which
"must be accepted as, in large
part, an expression of the
position of our foreign policy
establishment," of which Mr.
Ball is "a ranking member."
Alas, if only George W. Ball
had the power and influence
today which Mr. Bienstock has
ascribed to him.
A closer reading of Mr. Ball's
utterances over the last eleven
years would reveal not only a
frustrated career but a strain of
thinking in Washington which
has been largely discredited
thanks to recent developments in
the Pursian Gulf, namely the
Convulsion of Iran and Soviet
"activities" in both the Persian
Gulf and in Afghanistan.
Ball is 69 years old.

Johnson years,

and Henry Kissinger molded the
foreign policy apparatus into
their own image, Ball found
himself relegated to writing
columns for the op-ed page of The
Washington Post. When the
Democrats recaptured the White
House in 1976, George Ball never
received a phone call to take his
place in the new Carter ad-
To be sure, Ball's counsel was
sought and indeed followed in
1977. Carter's obsession with a
comprehensive peace in the
Middle East mirrored the now
famous Brook ings Institution
1975 position paper, "Towards a
Peace in the Middle East," to
which Ball, Zbigniew Brzenski
and Cyrus Vance all contributed
their expertise in the making of
the project.
In 1977 George Ball published
an article which appeared in the
Outlook Section of the Post
which aroused a storm of con-
Similar in content to the article
which Mr. Bienstock
recapitulated. Ball entitled this
piece, "How to Save Israel From
Herself." When Anwar Sadat
visited Jerusalem that
November, poor George was left
once again exasperated, won-
dering why the events of the
world would not conform to his
hallowed blueprints.
BALL HAS, at least until
recently, maintained a pipeline to
the White House and to the State
He has embraced the ethos, at
least in dealings with Israel, that
the United States will earn the
respect and trade benefits from
our potential adversaries by
punishing our allies.
Within the State Department,
this viewpoint has been for-
warded with unrelenting con-
sistency by the Arabist faction,
who opposed Harry Truman's
recognition of Israel in 1948 and
who remain hostile to any Israeli
independence today.
The Arabists got their way in
the first two Arab Israeli wars by
forcing the Israelis to relinquish
territory they had won. But in
the 1967 six-day war. when Israel
shrewdly held on to the West
Hank. Golan, and Gaza, saying
in effect, land for peace, the
George Balls of the State
Department had fits.
Now that the Soviets need to
import oil in the eighties, the
Persian Gulf is in danger of
falling into their hands.
Minister Ezer Weizman recently
told the White House that the
ruling families of the Persian
Gulf states are in danger of
falling from power. With the
Soviet invasion of Afghanistan
and their unsettling activities in
South Yemen threatening the
very existence of pro-Western
anti-Communist regimes, the
governments of Saudi Arabia
Oman, and the United Arab
Emirates are looking to the U.&.
for protection.
The result: Everyone from
President Carter to the Arab
monarchies has realized that the
value of Israel for both her air
bases and her intelligence-
gathering apparatus will
probably override the other
considerations now that those
very monarchies find their lives
at stake. So much for George Ball
and his punishing of Israel.
Another discrepancy in Mr.
Bienstock's article which should
be addressed was his evocation of
the image of a single, powerful,
all-pervasive foreign policy
establishment. There are simply
too many components and actors
in the foreign policy apparatus,
each actor and component having
varying points of view, to create
such an establishment.

TORTSCivil Damages
(Dedicated to My Son the Lawyer)
There are three books of the Babylonian Talmud (Trac-
tates) that are the major source of the law of torts (civil
They are respectively Baba Kamma (First Gate), Baba
Metzia (Middle Gate), and Baba Bathra (Last Gate).
There is a general rule which governs all cases of torts.
Whenever an object or person is capable, normally, to cause
damage the responsibility of guarding against possible damage
rests upon the owner. Also, whenever a person is responsible for
part of damage caused, he becomes liable to pay the full com-
For example: (Baba Kamma 14a).
IN THE CASE of a goring ox. The owner of the ox is liable
for half-damages, if the animal has not gored for three days.
On this point the sages were divided. Others ignored the
time factor and said full damages must be paid only after the ox
gored on three occasions. One-half damages to be paid when the
animal is so docile that a child can pat it and play with it.
On the other hand, the owner is completely exempt of
liability if he was not negligent. If the defendant's animal gored
the plaintiff on the defendant's premises, no liability is incurred
since the defendant did not give plaintiff permission to enter his
There are defenses to cases of negligence so as not to be
liable for damages.
1) If one received permission from the plaintiff. For
example: The plaintiff granted defendant permission to graze
his cattle on plaintiff's land. All damage to the cattle even
though caused by negligence is exempt. (Baba Kamma 14a)
2) If the person being sued was given permission (or or-
dered by court) to harm the plaintiff such as: flogging, a punish-
ment for a crime committed by the plaintiff. (Baba Kamma 92a)
3) Liability for damages was restricted to physical
damages. Thus distress, sorrow (no physical pain) was not
WHERE DAMAGE caused by the negligence of two people
both may be found liable in equal proportions. Thus, if two men
together dug a pit in a public place (street) they both would be
held liable in negligence for damage caused by the pit if plaintiff
fell into it and was hurt.
However, if one defendant had the job of covering the hole
and was negligent, he alone is liable. (Baba Kamma 51a)
If a man concealed sharp pieces of glass in his neighbor's
wall. The wall became condemned because of delapldation and
the owner demolished it. Pieces of the hidden glass.JJnTuito the
street injuring a person. The owner of the torn down wall is not
liable but the owner of the broken glass that did the injury is
liable. This ruling is based on ';No Knowledge" of the glass
being in his wall, therefore no contributory negligence. (Baba
Kamma 30a)
Where damage was caused By two people, one leading or
inducing the other to commit the act, we do not have clear
decisions. These cases are known in the Talmud as Gerama
(inducing, causing others to act). .
FOR EXAMPLE: If one informs the government that a
person has contraband in his possession, or that he is concealing
articles, merchandise to be taxed. As a result the merchandise is
seized by the government causing a loss to the plaintiff. Is the
informer liable?
A defendant tells someone to bring him his animal from the
fields of a third party. The man fetches the wrong animal. The
animal belongs to the owner of the field. He then decides to steal
it. The man who sent him into the other man's fields to fetch his
animal, is he liable for the theft? All the above cases are known
as Gerama and have room for good arguments on both sides.
(Baba Kama 59b)
In connection with the punishment for theft, the restitution
is sometimes five or fourfold or double the object or amount
THE DISCIPLES of Rabbi Jochanan Ben Zankai asked
"Why does the Torah make a thief who steals an animal repay
four or fivefold, but a robber merely pays twofold or sometime
only the value of the article stolen?" He replied, "The robber at
least made the honor of the man equal to the honor of his master
(God) by stealing in secret but the thief did not even make the
honor of the man equal to the honor of his master. He acted as
though there was no seeing eye below, the world without a
master. Therefore he must pay four or fivefold for his crime.
"If he steals an ox, he shall pay five oxen but if he steals a
sheep, he pays four sheep."
RABBI SAID, "Come and see how important is the matter
of personal dignity: since the ox walks away on its own legs, it
can be led by a rope, the thief pays fivefold, but inasmuch as a
sheep can not be ted but carried, thereby the thief suffers loss of
dignity he only repays fourfold.
"Come and see how great is the respect of the Torah for
Human dignity how much more so should a human being
respect his brothers' feelings and dignity."
Dear readers, I end the subject of torts fully aware that I
have not even put a slight dent into the subject. However, if I
whetted your appetites to pursue this subject further, I then
have attained my objective.
Shabbat Shalom!

Afghanistan. However,
according to a report pre-
pared by the American
Joint Distribution Com-
mittee, there are today but
a few families no more
than 100 people and
their whereabouts in the
current situation is un-
Most of the people lived
in Kabul, some in Herat.
and there are reports of one
remaining family in Balkh.
SOME DATE the origins of
the Jem ol Afghanistan to the
days of the First Temple, and
though that may be difficult to
document there is ample evidence
of later migrations into
Afghanistan from southern
Russia and from Persia.
In the late 1870s. thousands of
lews went from Herat to Persia
to avoid a punitive war tax but
as late as 1927 it was still
possible to count 60 distinct
Jewish communities. In 1933.
following the assassination of
Nadir Shah, the Jews were driven
from the countryside and con-
centrated in the municipal
centers for safety. Another sig-
nificant exodus from Afghanis-
tan took place in 1944. a time of
famine, and thousands more went
into India eventually going on
to Palestine.
The establishment of the State
of Israel brought a messianic
fervor to the Jews of Afghanistan
and an intense desire for aliya.
though the government refused
to allow them to leave.
AS LATE as 1950. when the
Jewish population was estimated
as being between 3.000 to 8.000.
Jews paid an infidel tax and had
to report for military service,
though they were not allowed to
bear arms. Despite the pro-
hibition on immigration the Jews
did find their way out family
by family. Most came to Israel,
some to the United States.
A JDC report received in 1971
described the situation at that
time as follows: "The Jewish
community is rapidly shrinking,
though there is no overt threat.
In Kabul there are 25 to 27
families and about 25 in Herat
. One major area of difficulty is
education. When the Jewish
youngster reaches about eighth
grade he frequently receives
pressure from students and
teachers to bring about con-
version, therefore few finish high
school and there are none in
Kabul University."
The most recent JDC reports
tell of 10 Jewish families in Kabul
and a total of no more than 100
people throughout the country.

I Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
VA-EYRA God spoke to Moses, saying: "Tell the Israelis I
that I will bring them out of Egypt and free them from slavery
And request of Pharaoh that he allow the Children of Israel togo I
out of his land."
When Pharaoh heard this, he grew more spiteful and meu I
than ever. He forbade his taskmasters to provide straw to the
people to make bricks. Instead they had to hunt for the straw
themselves. But the number of bricks they had to product |
remained the same.
The leaders of Israel complained bitterly to Moses. Their lot |
was getting harder. The Lord ordered Moses and Aaron to j
before Pharaoh a second time.
Aaron cast his rod before Pharaoh and it turned into i
snake. Pharaoh's magicians did the same, but Aaron's rod |
swallowed all of theirs.
Nevertheless, Pharaoh refused to yield.
So the Lord sent 10 plagues upon Egypt. The first plague j
turned all of the waters of Egypt to blood. The fish died in the
Nile, and there was no drinking water in the land.
Still Pharaoh's heart remained hard. Then came frogs, lice
flies, and cattle illness, boils, blisters, and hail.
But Pharaoh refused to free the Children of Israel. {Exodu

movement abroad. He also
cautioned the delegates against
the dangers of a free press.
The opening session of the
convention, which was to last five
days, was attended by Sephardic
Chief Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, Knes-
set Speaker Yitzhak Shamir and
other MKs. But the highlight of
the evening's session came when
the Rabbi of Gur and Rabbi
Shach, both members of the
Council of Torah Sages, entered
the convention hall. Hundreds of
admirers crowded the gates in
order to catch a glimpse of the
two sages.
The assembly, which last met
in 1964, sounded the battle cry
against Reform Judaism during
its present session, in particular
against any Israeli recognition of
either Reform or Conservative
Meir Abramowitz told the press
that the Aguda intends to launch
"an open all-out campaign"
against the two groups, for "they
are largely responsible for the
catastrophes of assimilation and
mixed marriages which have
befallen the Jewish people
throughout the world."
Meanwhile, the refusal of the
convention organizers to invite
President Yitzhak Navon, a non-
political figure whose presence at
the opening of all party con-
ventions is regarded as an honor,
further emphasized the non-
Zionist or anti-Zionist sentiments
of the Council of Sages, the
Aguda's supreme authority. As a
result. Mayor Teddy Kollek of
Jerusalem boycotted the con-
Mapam MK Chaika Grossman
dispatched a letter to Prime
Minister Menachem Begin
urging him to oust the Aguda
from his coalition because it was
unseemly to include a non-Zionist
party in the government. Aguda
spokesmen had said Navon was
not invited because many of the
rabbis were too old to rise upon
his entering the hall.
OUTSIDE the convention hall,
large groups of Orthodox youths
from the Bnei Akiva movement
and the Poalei Aguda Israel
shouted protests against the
"anti-Zionist" meeting being
held inside. Members of the
National Religious Party,
another coalition partner, were
also barred.
Danny Vermus, the NRP's
secretary general, explained,
"There is no real reason for us to
expect to be invited by Aguda
Israel when they did not want the
President to attend their con-
vention. We are too much of a
Zionist party to be desirable

Los Angeles Jews are almost
unanimous in their support of
Israel. Although 83 percent have
never belonged to a Zionist
organization, and 71 percent have
never visited Israel, the over-
whelming majority (83 percent)
declared themselves very willing
to pressure U.S. policy in favour
of Israel.
In a sharp break with Jewish
passivity of earlier decades, 59
percent of respondents (and two-
thirds of the young educated
ones) said they would be willing
to use force to oppose Nazi-type
groups in the United States.
Dr. Sandberg expressed some
surprise at this attitude "as Jews
have always been strong civil
libertarians," but he attributes
the change to "an underlying fear
that anti-Semitism could again
become virulent."
JEWS now represent 2.7
percent of the total American
population, and intermarriage,
coupled with a low birthrate and

"while among their children, the
second generation, the rate
jumped to 10 percent, and to 18
percent among the third
generation." He has not yet
analyzed the data for the fourth
generation today's young men
and women but a widely ac-

placed the rate as well above 40

freedom that Jews today enjoy in

How Would You Choose?
Our community agencies haven't got the
resources to keep pace with growing needs.
What should they do? Cut services?
Eliminate programs?
Or reduce the number of beneficiaries?
How would you choose?
Make the Jewish choke. Choose to help.
To give.
