It Was No 'Foul-Up':
It Was Real Carter Policy
By VICTOR BIENSTOCK
Not long into his term of
office, President John F.
Kennedy was pained and
embarrassed by a bureau-
cratic action that indicated
bias at a middle level of the
State Department. The
angry President seized the
telephone and for some
minutes heatedly but ex-
plicitly told off the offen-
der's superior. When he
hung up, he turned to the
White House counsel and
growled in exasperation: "I
guess well have to appoint
an ambassador of our own

ought to consider that possibility
to avoid in future "failure of com-

Connie Dugiin, American Affairs chairwoman of ORT
(evening chapter), reports that once again this chapter held an
essay writing contest at Tampa Bay Technical School. The topic
selected for this year's contest was "How Might Your Life
Change as a Result of Choosing a Vocational School?" The
contest ran for three weeks, and upon the decision of the judges
(after reading through all submitted essays), three prizes will be
awarded by this ORT chapter at an upcoming general meeting.
At that time, the winning essays also will be read. This is a
marvelous annual program which encourages these students to
excel and enables them to possibly win a prize for this ex-
cellence, on top of.it all.

Sauce for the Goose
The new move led by West Germany, France
and England to rewrite UN Res. 242 will receive
added impetus from President Carter's double vote
and double cross at the United Nations.
The Arab world insists that President Carter
may have repudiated the vote, but that the vote
must stand. If that is true, how come that West
Germany, France and England can rewrite UN Res.
If the vote is inviolable, why isn't the resolution
The Tempest Unabated
In all the debate over President Carter's
monumental UN gaffe the most salient point to be
made is whether the United States should have voted
for any anti-Israel resolution despite the ad-
ministration's well-known position that the settle-
ments in the occupied territories are illegal.
By voting for a resolution condemning Israel,
the U.S. was challenging its Mideast policy. It was
acting contrary to the Camp David accords and could
result in the sabotage of the ongoing autonomy talks
between the U.S., Israel and Egypt.
It has been reported that Sol Linowitz,
President Carter's special envoy for Mideast nego-
tiations, and his predecessor in the job, Robert
Strauss, both considered the vote a major mistake.
The vote can now be seen as part of the pattern
that has been emerging in the administration since
the Iranian and Afghan crises to seek support in the
Moslem world at the expense of Israel. Such a policy,
if it continues, can result in disaster not just for
Israel, but for the U.S., as well.
Already this week, Prime Minister Begin
warned that any change in the letter-meaning of the
Camp David accords might well cripple the peace
process irreparably. His appointment Sunday of
Yitzhak Shamir as Israel's new Foreign Minister,
underscores this view. Shamir has opposed the peace
treaty with Egypt from the very beginning as a

'.he record shows U.S. approval
jf it despite Carter's statement
disavowing the U.S. vote.
IN THIS connection, wit-
nesses were to be asked what
elements in the resolution the
Furthermore, the committee is
scheduled to seek to ascertain
what the Carter Administration
proposes to do in a formal way at
the UN with regard to the
resolution that is now an official
UN document. In addition, the
committee would also seek from
the State Department all
documents that attest to its
contention that the Israel settle-
ments in the territories it oc-
cupied in 1967 are illegal.
The Administration has con-
sistently maintained this position
and Israel has disputed it. At the
State Department, chief spokes-
man Hodding Carter said he was
"not sure" whether Vance would
appear as a witness at the com-
mittee hearing, but noted that
the Secretary would be "happy to
discuss the matter with the

CARTER WAS asked if the
problem at the UN involved two
different texts of the resolution,
one which Vance had and the
other that McHenry had when
they spoke in advance of the
vote. The State Department
spokesman said he wouW not
discuss this and reiterated that
the "basic responsibility" has
been taken by Vance and he was
not going into "internal details"
Carter said he would not
quarrel with a reported statement
by National Security Adviser
Zbigniew Brzezinski that the
resolution was not helpful to the
U.S. because it angered the
Israelis and the President's
repudiation angered the Arabs.

The Parables of Jeremiah
By RABBI T. BROD
The prophet Jeremiah used many parables to convey his
message to the people. His words and deeds were recorded by
his disciple, the scribe, Baruch. son of Neriah.
In 589 BCE. Judah was ruled by King Zedekiah. The king
found himself wavering between two political paths: submission
to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia or uniting all subject
nations, led by Kgypt. and attempt to throw off the yoke of the
Jeremiah heaped scorn on Kgypt, "Pharaoh King of Egypt is
but a notoe, in his attempt to incite Palestine, Syria and Judah
against Babylonia," he preached Ambassadors from Phoenicia,
Moab. Ammon and Edom arrived in Jerusalem to join the
He brew army officers who also advocated revolt against King
JEREMIAH placed a wooden yoke around his neck and
preached, "They must bear the yoke or be destroyed." When the
prophet Hananiah, who favored the revolt, broke the yoke,
Jeremiah said, "Thou hast broken the bars of wood, but you
shall make in their place Bars of Iron."
In the year 588 BCE, King Zedekiah rebelled against the king
of Babylon. Phoenicia and Egypt joined him. Nebuchadnezzar,
unable to penetrate the walls of Jerusalem, built forts around it
to starve the people out. It would be only a question of time
before famine would compel surrender.
The Hebrews held on to the hope that God would not allow
His Temple to be destroyed. They did penitence by releasing
their slaves who had served them a period of six years, according
to the laws of Moses written in the Torah.
ALL EYES were to the South, or their ally Egypt, surely she
will come soon to their aid. The news was heralded that the
Egyptians were coming. The Chaldeans withdrew from
Jerusalem to meet them. The joy in the capital was short-lived.
The Chaldeans met the Egyptians and made a treaty with them.
Judah was abandoned by her ally. The Chaldeans resumed the
siege (if Jerusalem. The people defended themselves heroically.
Famine and pestilence spread within.
Jeremiah was arrested and thrown into a pit from where he
was rescued by the King's servants. Again Jeremiah advised the
King to surrender but it fell on deaf ears. On the 9th day of
Tammuz, 20 months after the commencement of the siege, the
Chaldeans breached the walls of Jerusalem, entering the City,
The King and his family fled but were captured and returned.
King Zedekiah was forced to look on while his sons were slain.
He. himself, was carried off to Babylon, a captive in chains.
On the 9th day of AB (Tish B'av) the King's general
Nebu/.aradan applied the torch to the Temple after stripping it
of its vessels and ornaments. This day is observed by our people
as a day of fasting and mourning in commemoration of the
Jeremiah used many parables to make his point. One of the
classical ones is the parable of the potter and the clay.
"THE WORD which came to Jeremiah from the Lord saying!
"Arise, and go down to the Potter's House, and there you will
hear My words." Then I went to the Potter, and behold, he was
at his work on the wheels. Whenever the vessel he made was
marred, he made another, as seemed good for him to do.
Then the word of the Lord came to me! "O Israel cannot I do
with you as this Potter? Behold, as the clay in the Potter's hand,
so are you in My Hand. At one moment, I can pluck up, break
down or destroy a nation, but if the nation turn from evil, I
repent of the bad that I thought to do unto it. Now speak to the
men of Judah and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem saying. Thus
sayeth the Lord: Return you now everyone from his evil way,
amend your ways and deeds."
This parable used in the High Holydays liturgy has become
the symbol of God's Omnipotence. As the clay in the hands of
the Potter, so are we in the hands of God. But God's power is
not arbitrary, it has a moral aim and is controlled by ethical
considerations. The vessel, man, is not entirely passive. He has
the choice of good or evil and the Master Potter shapes man
according to the choice he makes.
(To be continued)
Longtime members of the Tampa
Jewish community will tell them
that it has not been easy. It has
taken years of devotion and
financial sacrifice to build our
Jewish Community Center into
the kind of facility it now is.
Programs such as those
providing transportation and
daily kosher hot lunches for
senior citizens are the outgrowth
of years of planning and
professionalism to better serve
that segment of the population.
EFFORTS such as Russian
Resettlement, run by Tampa
Jewish Social Service, would not
be possible without the necessary
dollars and trained ad-
ministrators to effectively allow
Russian immigrants to make a
successful transition for a
fulfilling life here.
But the remarkable point of
discussions with newcomers to
Tampa is that they are very
much aware of those programs
cited above and the countless
others offered by the Tampa
Jewish community. Many show
their appreciation by making a
generous contribution to the
Tampa Jewish Federation for
finding a ready-made community
As someone pointed out
recently, "Prior to my coming to
Tampa, someone had to pay for
all this, and now I am benefiting
greatly. 1 feel that I owe
something to the community,
and I want to pay my community
rent in this manner."
We cannot assess each person
for his or her share of the large
investment we have in our ready-
made facilities. But just as that
newcomer to Tampa quoted
above pointed out, community
rent is both a moral and financial
obligation to continue the kind of
benefits we now all enjoy.
FACILITIES sponsored by
the Tampa Jewish Federation do
not run automatically: they need
financial support from all Tampa
Jewish citizens to continue to
maintain their present level of
operation and hopefully expand
beyond that in the future.
Community rent must be paid
by all Jewish citizens. It does not
matter if you have lived here six
months, two years, or 25 years.
As our national theme proclaims.
Now. More Than Ever "We are
All of our facilities, programs,
and services are here for our use
pleasure, and enrichment.
Therefore, each of us has an
obligation to think more carefully
about his or her contribution to
the current Tampa Jewish
Federation-UJA 1980 Campaign.
So. give your contribution a
careful thought, remembering
that inflation affects all areas of
our lives, including our com-
munity rent. And boost your

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
VAYAKHEL PEKUDAY Moses called together all the
Children of Israel and said to them: "These are Gods com
mandments to you.
"Six days a week may you work, but on the seventh day
you shall observe a Shabbat, a day of rest, holy to God."
And Moses asked everyone who wanted to do so with hit
whole heart to give a special contribution toward the building of
the Tabernacle. They could give gold, silver, or brass; fine linen,
goatskins, acacia wood, or oil for lighting the Eternal Light.
Moses also asked skilled workmen to step forward to help
construct the Tabernacle.
Bezalel and Oholiab. both highly skilled craftsmen, led the
workers who built the Tabernacle. And the people were so
generous that they continued to bring contributions every
morning. At last the workmen told Moses that no more
materials were needed for the work.
So Moses announced to the entire encampment that con-
tributions were to be halted, and that no man or woman was to
bring any further contribution.
And the people listened and obeyed, happy that more than
enough was already on hand for the work commanded by God
/ i .,/n.7.V / 38 201
In time all the work on the Tabernacle was finished, and the
Israelites did as the Lord had commanded Moses. Each of the
Israelites brought a gift with which to make the Lord's Arkand
Tabernacle beautiful. Bezalel and Oholiab. the two chief crafts
nun. supen ised the work.
For the Lord had said: "On the first day of the first month
shall you erect the Tent of Meeting. And you shall put therein
i In Holy Ark, and the table and the showbread. and the candle-
si ick. And you shall set the golden altar before the Ark."
Now when Moses saw that the Children of Israel did all that
God had commanded, he blessed them and caused the Tent ol
Meeting to be set up.
Then a cloud covered the Tent of Meeting, and the glory of
the Lord filled the Tabernacle. The Israelites prepared them
selves to march. Whenever the cloud was raised above the
Tabernacle, the Israelites would march ahead, throughout all
their journeys, but whenever the cloud was not raised, the)
would not move until it was lifted.
The cloud of the U>rd covered the Tabernacle by day. and
at night there was a fire in the cloud, in sight of all the house of
Israel, throughout all their journeys (Exodu* 38:2140:381.

THERE ARE two ex-
planations of how the United
States Government has gotten
into this mess and appears before
the world today without
credibility, its President, another
Chamberlain at Munich. It is
charitable to accept the version
offered by the President and his
advisers that it was all a horrible
mistake which no one in the
administration recognized until it
was too late, and until Israeli
Ambassador Evron, carefully
and painstakingly pointed out to
an embarrassed Secretary Vance
just what each little word in the
resolution added up to.

ignorance and incompetence of an
incredible degree prevail in
determination of important
foreign policy questions. Sec-

appearance before a largely
Jewish audience that serious
communications blunders oc-
curred much more frequently in
the exchanges between Washing-
ton and the UN Mission in New
York than was generally known.
He gave full credence to the
The alternative was succinctly
phrased by Sen. Henry M.
Jackson, admittedly no great
admirer of Carter's conduct of
foreign policy. "My intuitive
feeling," he commented, "is that
the heat got too much for the
White House and that they
changed their mind about sup-
portinK the resolution."
SEN. PAT MOYNIHAN was
skeptical of the official ex-
planation and called for full
public disclosure of the alleged
blunder "in order to insure that it
was a mistake and not a change
in policy." Ambassador
McHenry was in the clear as far
as the actual vote went; he had
followed Vance's instructions as
Vance did not mention the
seven damaging references to
Jerusalem and Mc Henry ap-
parently did not think it was
necessary to do so. It should have
been obvious to both men that
these seven references were no
less objectionable than the para-
graph Carter had insisted must
The alternative to this picture
of bumbling ineptitude which the
administration offered in defense
of its action is the chilling but
nevertheless likely prospect that
the American vote on this Arab-
sponsored resolution does, in
fact, represent a significant
change from the policy the ad-
ministration has publicly
espoused, that it represents the
real policy of the Carter adminis-
tration and that the American
vote was cast after due
deliberation but with a failure to
foresee the extent of the reaction.
IT IS much more logical to
accept this alternative than to
believe that Carter did not read
the text of a resolution on a vital
foreign issue, the only one in
which he can claim any success;
that Vance, the cagey inter-
national lawyer, read the text
without appreciating the signifi-
cance of the seven references U
Jerusalem; that Zbigniew
Brzezinski, the political scientist,
lid not immediately grasp the
thrust and intent of the
resolution and what an American
affirmative vote would mean.
That is asking the world to ac-
cept a great deal.
If we examine the resolution in
the light of American policy in
recent years, we must concede
that it is a natural development.
Washington has never recognized
that Israel or Jews in general had
any rights on the West Bank. We
have refused to recognize the
incorporation of East Jerusalem
into the city of Jerusalem, the
capital of Israel.
So now, we take East
Jerusalem out of limbo and
attach it to the West Bank and
say that Jews have no right to

Does that Oriental rug on your

We sit round the Seder table each year, and celebrate The Exodus
through traditions passed down to us over thousands of years These
traditions have become so much a part of our heritage they are inscribed
in The Hagodah for all the world to see: the matzoh. the MaNishtanah'.
the Aphikoman. the recitation of the plagues, the chant of Dayen u and
on and on through the night, closing with "Chad Gadya.
At each Seder, however, there are other kinds of traditions... tradi
tons which are just as strong, just as chenshed They are our personal
family traditions. Unwritten and unsung, they are as much a part of our
Seders as the hard boiled eggs and bitter herbs. And among these, one of
the most popular traditions is the wine that is used throughout the
Seder evening. That is Manischewitz. of course. In millions of homes, it
just wouldn't be Passover without a bottle of Manischewitz Kosher Wine.
It is a wine that spans the generations and. somehow, symbolizes the
continuity of the family Seder Faces may change, we grow older, some
times there is a new youngster to
ask the'MaNishtanah:. .but always
there is the Manischewitz.
It holds a traditional and honored
place at our Seder table.
