No Date Set
Carter to Meet Begin, Sadat
(JTA) The White House
announced that President
Carter will meet separately
with President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt and Prime
Minister Menachem Begin
of Israel in Washington
next month, but the "exact
dates are undecided."
Presidential Press Secretary
Jody Powell, who made the
announcement, said, "The
purpose is to review the progress
and pace of the autonomy nego-
tiations for the West Bank and
Gaza. The negotiations are being
conducted in accordance with the
provisions of the Camp David
accords signed by all three
leaders on September 17,1978."
A SHORT time later, at a
second briefing, Powell an-
nounced that special Ambas-
sador Sol Linowitz, President
Carter's envoy to the autonomy
talks, would be on his way within
days for Egypt and Israel to meet
with the leaders of those coun-
tries and then go to Alexandria to
attend the plenary session of the
autonomy negotiations. The last
plenary session was held in The
1 lague on Feb. 28 and 29.
Powell said, "The purpose of
his trip will be to pursue the
negotiations and, of course, to
that purpose has now been added
the preparations for the
meetings" of Carter with Sadat
and Begin in April. Asked
whether the President is averse
to a summit meeting of all three
leaders and why they will be
meeting separately, Powell
"The reason for these meetings
is that all of the parties to the
Camp David accords felt that the
time was appropriate, given the
importance of the issues under
negotiation and the May 26 goal,
and for the architects of the
Camp David accords to discuss
the progress made to date and
explore means to move forward.
It was the judgment of those
involved that this would be best
accomplished under the format I
PRESSED repeatedly as to
whether progress in the
autonomy talks has come to a
halt and that the May 26 goal
may not be reached, the White
House spokesman pointed out
that "The are meetings in
support of the ongoing
negotiations" and that it is "a
different situation that what we
faced in the summer of 1978"
when "there was no framework
for discussions, very little agree-
ment on any issues and no peace"
between Egypt and Israel.
Powell suggested to reporters
that they should not lean in the
direction that the upcoming
meetings are a "process" toward
a summit meeting involving the
three leaders. "These meetings
are not to replace the negotiating
process but to support the
existing process," he said.
Powell also insisted that the
May 26 date is a "goal," not "a
deadline." But, he said, "every
effort will be made to indeed meet
that goal and that is the clear
hope of those concerned." Earlier
in the week, Begin and Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir of
Israel both made similar state-
ments. Begin said that May 26
"is not a so-called deadline or
ultimate date." Shamir also
stated that May 26 is merely a
desired date.
POWELL emphasized several
times that the talks have not
been deadlocked. Asked if they
were stalled, he said, "No, I
won't agree with that charac-
He said the talks in Washing-
ton "are not related" to the
United Nations Security Coun-
cil's anti-Israel resolution of Mar.
1 which the U.S. supported and
which Carter later repudiated.
Powell said the meetings have
been under discussion "at least a

Vandals Deface Tombstones
BONN (JTA) Vandals defaced 74 gravestones
with Nazi symbols and slogans in the non-Jewish Berlin-
Frohman cemetery here. Police suspect that the per-
petrators belong to neo-Nazi groups. Swastikas were
smeared on 20 of the gravestones and others were painted
with the characters "SS" in runic letters and such slogans
as "Heil Hitler" and "Juden Raus" (Jews get out). Swas-
tikas and other Nazi symbols were found carved on
nearby trees.
MEANWHILE, a number of West German news-
papers published articles on Albert Speer, who was
Hitler's Minister for Armament during World War II, on
the occasion of his 75th birthday.
Speer was sentenced to 20 years in prison for his part
in the Nazis' forced labor program. He was released from
Spandau prison in 1966 and has since published several
volumes of memoirs.
TaySachs Testing Available Free
(All testing, at NO CHARGE,
will be held the entire month of
April at the University of South
Florida Medical School. Call 974-
2456 for your appointment.)
AWARENESS is the goal of
the third year program of
National Council of Jewish
Women, in conjunction with the
University of South Florida
Genetics Program, in sponsoring
April as Tampa Bay Area Tay-
Sachs Month.
Tay-Sachs is a genetically
inherited fatal disease that at-
tacks young children and causes
destruction of the nervous
system. Several such genetic or
inherited diseases are carried by
those of Jewish ancestry. Some of
these disorders, particularly
common to Jews, go back into
the early history of the Jewish
people. Some are of more recent
origin; Tay-Sachs, first recog-
nized less than 100 years ago, is
Infants with Tay-Sachs look
and behave normally at birth.
Normal development continues
for several months; then, sud-
denly at about six months, mus-
cular weakness becomes evident.
Very rapidly, physical and
mental deterioration sets in.
Death occurs usually between the
ages of three and five years.
TODAY, only uninformed
couples need suffer the anguish of
learning that a seemingly healthy
child is doomed because of Tay-
Sachs. The Tay-Sachs Disease
Testing Program, designed to
prevent this tragic genetic
disease, detects carriers by a
simple blood test.
In the Tampa Bay area, in the
first testing program, 250 people
were screened. Initial results
assured a large number of
families that they had not in-
herited the Tay-Sachs gene.
However, 22 potential carriers
were retested and two true
carriers were identified.
For a second year, Tampa
Section, National Council of
Jewish Women, in conjunction
with the University of South
Florida College of Medicine,
undertook the responsibility of
conducting a Tay-Sachs
Screening Program. Results were
gratifying; especially concerning
the growth of Tay-Sachs
education in the Tampa area, said
the NCJW leaders.
Chairmen for the Tampa
Section, NCJW, are Margie
Bernstein and Lee Kessler.
Working with them will be
Marsha Stein, publicity chair-
man, and Betty Cohen, medical
liaison chairman.
As a third year of screening
begins, it is evident that more
and more physicians and com-
mercial laboratories are using the
testing facilities of the University
of South Florida by referring
their patients for the Tay-Sachs
The March of Dimes has en-
dorsed the Testing Prevention
Program as part of their Birth
Defects Program.
Awareness is the key word and
the Tampa Bay area with Dr.
Thomas Tedesco's (USF)
dedication is achieving this goal,
said the chairmen.

A Passover Message
President Tampa Jewish Federation
Passover, the season of freedom. Passover, our liberation
from Egyptian bondage. The Exodus marks the creation of the
Jewish people, our emergence as a nation linked by a special
bond. For in retelling what has been passed from generation to
generation, we become witnesses to historical truth and a
national experience. We relive bondage, slavery, oppression,
only to experience deliverance and emancipation.
However, today in other countries, our fellow Jews are still
bound by the yoke of oppression and the chains of slavery. We
hear their cries for Jewish identity, national freedom, of Jewish
During this seder, let us identify with our people's needs
today: rededicate ourselves anew to increased financial ''om-
mitment to Israel throughout Federation < UJA campaign.
During this seder le: is drink a fifth cup of wine the Cup of
Hope, for fellow Jews still oppressed wherever they might be.
I^et us give new meaning through our actions so that
together ... we can say "We are one."

Continue Tzedakah Tradition
Pesach. What comes to your mind?
A large family gathering? Charoses? The Seder
plate? Motza Brei?
Yes, Passover is a time of wonderful traditions.
We work very hard to maintain these traditions. We
work at it in our homes and in our synagogues.
There is another tradition that we must work
equally hard to maintain. That is the tradition of
TZEDAKAH, the tradition of giving, the tradition
of charity.
This tradition, too, will only continue by
DOING. You can't just talk about it. So, while you
continue the Passover tradition, continue the
TZEDAKAH tradition. And let everyone around
your Seder table know that you believe both
traditions are important.
Your gift to the Tampa Jewish Federation 1980
campaign will continue the tradition that one
Jew helps another, always!
Passover and Freedom
There are few Jews, even those with little or no
religious beliefs, who do not mark Passover in some
One reason is that Passover has become the one
holiday when Jews get together with their families.
It is a holiday when children play a central role, such
as asking the Four Questions at the Seder. In fact,
the purpose of the Seder is to pass on the Jewish
experience to the younger generations.
But perhaps Passover has become so important
because it marks the birth of the Jewish nation. This
has taken on added meaning with the creation of
Israel. For 2,000 years, the Seder has ended with the
words, "Next Year in Jerusalem." Since 1948, and
especially since the reunion of the city in 1967, this
has become not a dream but a reality.
Passover reminds Jews of the importance of
freedom. The symbols used at the Seder and the
Haggadah itself tell Jews that once we were slaves in
Egypt, and we are enjoined to keep reminding our
children of this, because those who were once slaves
will value freedom even more.
For American Jews, it means guarding our
liberties in the United States and striving to ensure
the survival of democracy here and abroad. It means
guaranteeing that Israel will survive as a free and
prosperous and secure Jewish State that will fulfill
the Biblical commandment of being a light unto the
Another Score for Sadat
President Sadat's invitation to the Shah of Iran
to come and live in Egypt now places him tall in the
saddle of Middle Eastern affairs, whether for eood or
One thing for sure, it strengthens his nego-
tiating position with Israel and therefore can be cal-
culated to stiffen the backs of the State Depart-
ment's already tough anti-Israel stance so far as the
Palestinians are concerned.
We should make no mistake: Sadat has no more
love for the Palestinians than do the Israelis, but he
is using them to the limit to recapture his ascendant
role over the other Arab nations, which he lost in his
peace-making process with Israel.
Nor should we make the mistake that it is a
peace-making process. What Sadat is doing is merely
recapturing the Sinai without firing a shot. After
that, the deluge.
Things are bad enough for Israel these days, but
Sadat's sanctuary to the Shah makes them even

gained from it. On the other
hand, there was the ever-present
danger that the administration
would use the investigation as a
platform on which to spout its
justification for the vote except,
of course, for the Jerusalem
pr<>\ isions.
AND THAT is precisely what
It is here, we are meant to
believe, that the Carter Vance
McHenry "sorry, wrong num-
ber" was dialed. What pure
bunk! The President says
nothing more than that he would
have instructed McHenry to
oppose the UN resolution if only
he knew of all of those Jerusalem
provisions in it.
Beyond that, what do we know
about Carter on Jerusalem
anyway? Absolutely nothing
other than that his instructions
to McHenry, we are meant to
believe, would be predicated on
his interpretation of the
resolution as being contrary to
the Camp David accords.
This ambiguity apart, which
American Jewish voters had best
think about long and hard, the
congressional investigation did
turn out as precisely I feared. We
don't really know just what
Carter gave instructions to vote
for or against. What we do know
about is administration im-
periousness and irritation at
being questioned.
THE TAPED exchange, for
example, between Cyrus Vance
and Sen. Richard Stone was even
worse than I anticipated. The
tapes show an arrogance on
Vance's part, a determination to
do the UN vote all over again so
that McHenry can vote the same
way again, this time without
presidential apology.
No one else fared any better in
the Senate, including the ranking
Republican member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee,
Jacob Javits of New York. And
in the House's own "inves-
tigation." Vance was just as
hostile, just as adamant, just as
ugly and threatening.
The point has been made
before: on this issue. President
Carter is a consummate politician
which, in these days, is to say
that he is downright dishonest.
Vance at the hearings said one
thing, which for propaganda
purposes he interpreted as "pro-
Israel" where, in fact, what he
was saying spells the murder of
Israel's nationhood.
MEANWHILE, back at the
peanut farm in the White House.
Carter was reconfirming the U.S.
commitment to Israel in lovely
counterpoint to Vance's death
blows. In the end. the President
believes he has had it both ways.
Gen. Sharon is, of course,
right. Speaking in New York the
other week, he attacked the
American Jewish community for
its almost indifferent reaction to
the Carter Vance McHenry
triplecross. American Jews are
flocking in droves to the primary
polls to vote for Carter as "the
man who can be trusted."
although only Heaven knows on
what ground.
My own view of all of this is
that a second Carter presidency,
this time unfettered by his need
to pretend to the Jewish com-
munity, would be an unmitigated
disaster. Vance would be replaced
by Ruth Stapleton once Carter's
won. Rosalynn would be surefire
Vice President, no more cos-
metics needed to hide Walter
Mondale's consignment to the
White House basement.
WHAT I fear most is the
inevitability of the Palestinian
ascendancy spurred by our U.S.
friends in Kurope whose friend-
ship tor us is most recently
underscored by their reaction to
the proposed Olympic boycott:
"Hell no. we're gonna go." except
that when Russian troops come
marching down the Champs
Elyseea (tra-la. tra-la) the chant
will surely change: "M'aidez,
I fear it because the rest of
America is weary of the Israel-
Arab struggle. Morals and ideals
are too burdensome, and too
many see it as the reason for our
every crisis as if it were
destined that, Israel or no Israel,
the Arabs would not otherwise
have come to their senses about
selling a priceless commodity
such as oil so cheaply to us as

now to tell the Israelis to get lost,
so that the struggle can be ended

the energy crisis, too. That's
where Europe's going. Why not

WE MUST be wary of this. If

We must continue the words.
We must not give up the debate.
On the Palestinian issue, we
might quote, say. Rafik Natasha,
the PLO representative in Saudi
Arabia, in an interview with Al
Riad on November 15. 1979:
"The best solution (to the Israel-
Arab struggle), in our opinion, is
the return of the aliens to their
countries: The Palestinian living
as an alien far from his homeland
must return to it. and the alien
Jew who has been brought from
all over the world must return to
his country of origin.''
Isn't that sweet? Libya's Col.
Qadaffi has the same viewpoint,
except that he proposes at what
date the cutoff point be made for
alien and non-alien Jew: 1948.

JDC Ships Over 400,000 Smilowitz Heads Regional USY Group
[pounds of Passover Supplies
NEW YORK The American
[Jewish Joint Distribution
Committee (JDC) has shipped
I over 400.000 pounds of Passover
[supplies to small Jewish com-
[munities throughout the world,
I including shipments to the
[communities of Egypt and
Lebanon, according to JDC
President Donald M. Robinson.
Passover, which com-
Imemorates the exodus of the
Ijews from slavery in ancient
Egypt and their wanderings
Tthrough the desert for 40 years
efore reaching the Promised
and. will begin this year on
Monday evening, March 31.
"The small Jewish com-
[munities, in their isolation,
[symbolize the need for all Jews to
[reach out to help one another to
[preserve Jewish tradition and to
assure spiritual and physical
|survival. "This," said Robinson,
"is the traditional role of the JDC
las the arm of the American
Jewish community concerned
with the rescue, relief and
reconstruction of Jews and
[Jewish communities the world
JDC Executive Vice President,
|Ralph 1. Goldman, noted that for
the past two years JDC had been
[providing the small Jewish
[community of Egypt with
Passover matzah and supplies
[directly, rather than through the
I International Red Cross as was
| the case for the past 31 years.
Officials estimate that there
are 400 Jews in Lebanon and an
equal number in Egypt, divided
between Alexandria with 250
and Cairo with 150.
Goldman noted that wherever
possible, JDC provides matzah
manufactured in Israel.
"Of all the communities
receiving shipments of matzah
and supplies, Romania receives
the largest amount, nearly
275,000 pounds. Tunisia received
47,000 pounds and Poland got
43,000 pounds. Other countries
receiving Passover supplies were
Greece, Italy, Yugoslavia, Melilla
and Cueta in Spanish Morocco,
Portugal and Spain," said
"THE PRIMARY recipients in
Italy are the Soviet Jewish
emigrants celebrating their first
Passover in freedom and waiting
in the Rome area for visa for-
malities to be completed before
proceeding to the U.S. and other
western countries. Special
Haggadahs (Seder Readers),"
said Goldman, "have been
printed in Hebrew and Russian to
enable the emigrants to follow
the reading."
Funds for JDC's Passover
assistance program and for its
health, educational and welfare
programs are mainly provided by
Jewish Federations and Welfare
Funds through the United
Jewish Appeal.

book in hand, and checked off each item to make certain I hadn't
forgotten anything. The silver, newly unwrapped from its
wedding paper, shone like windows the day after spring
cleaning. The new silver Seder plate was undented, untarnished,
and void of any memories as yet.
Now our "table" winds around corners, into one room and
over spilling into another. It changes levels midstream as it
THE MAIN table, of course, is in the dining room. Then we
add on two card tables, a side-board that opens jnto a
table, the kitchen table and one TV table. Babies (which we are
void of, at present) sit with adults at the main table. The many
generations spread out, like rays of sunshine, with a few of the
mid-older kids interspersed among the little ones to keep the
peace. When it works, this night truly becomes different than
any other night!
As some of the children grew and went off to college, every-
one moved up towards the main table accordingly, like in
"Mother May I?" One of the younger ones looked at the main
table in the dining room and back to his place around the corner.
''By the time / make it to the big table, I'll be an old man!''
You used to be able to tell the middle point at our table. It

It's harder now to find helpers to chop the apples, too,
although there are more volunteers to eat the raisins. No one
needs plastic plates, and my tarnished silver Seder plate dish
has seen its share of dents and droppings. Teeth marks in one
end remind me how long one little one found the service to be
... and how preoccupied we must have been that we didn't
notice he was chewing on the plate.
But the freezer's filled with lamb shanks. (I save them
every time we have a leg of lamb, "so I won't be without for the
Seder.") I've bought enough horseradish to keep us all in tears
for years, and, as usual, I forgot to buy the parsley and have to
make a return trip for that.
to EACH YEAR as/we begin the Seder, I'm warmed by the

Memories of all our past Seders come back as vividly as
when they were being lived ... the day I accidently hid the
matzo balls instead of the matzo (the phone rang and I put the
bowl down somewhere) ... the night the then-littlest one was
nudged awake to ask the four questions and said, "Is it my
birthday yet?" ... the night someone inadvertently mixed the
wine and the salt water together.
Our Seder table may not be all together, but each part
touches the other. I like to think our family is a little like our

meeting, since it might "com-
promise" his position as a
negotiator in the "delicate"
autonomy talks now going on.
He also said it was "ill-
advised" to make the issue of
peace in the Mideast into a
Jewish issue, since it was an
American issue. He said that
instead of sending two Jewish
spokesmen, the Carter
Administration should have sent
someone like Harold Saunders,
Assistant Secretary of State for
Near East and South Asian
Affairs, since the State
Department was also responsible
for the UN vote.
Berkowitz and Malcolm
lloenlein, executive director of
the Jewish Community Relations
Council of New York, told the
JTA that those attending the
meeting stressed that even if
references to Jerusalem had been
omitted from the UN resolution it
was still a bad resolution which
the U.S. should have vetoed.
Carter maintained that the
resolution was approved by the
Administration because it was
incorrectly believed that all
references to Jerusalem had been
BERKOWITZ said that what
Strauss was saying was an echo
of the President's oft-repeated
statement, "trust me." Stanley
Lowell, former chairman of the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry and an organizer of the
meeting, said that in demanding
a public statement from the
President, the audience said it
had to come from Carter per-
sonally and not from Vice
President Walter Mondale or
other Administration
The meeting was organized
after the UN vote and its af-
termath revealed a wiHe-spread
disaffection of Jews with Carter.
The New York State Primary is
being held March 25, and Jews
historically vote in this state's
primary ir. larger proportion to
their numbers than any other
The disaffection with Carter
was shown by the demonstrators
outside the Harmonie Club, at 4
East 60th Street, where the
meeting was held, who carried
signs, including, "Jimmy, We
Don't Believe You," "Carter
Stabbed Israel in the Back," and
"We Need a President Who Can
THE FIRST group of
demonstrators were mostly
young women from Stem College
of Yeshiva University and
students from the Hebrew
Institute of Riverdale led by
Rabbi Avi Weiss, who said they
were members of his Mobilization
for Israel group.
Weiss called for the election of
"anyone" but Carter. He said
Carter has demonstrated that he
is anti-Israel which means he also
acts against American interests.
Many of the demonstrators did
not seem to know who Kahane
was when the JDL leader and his
group pushed to the front of the
police barricades and a scuffle
with the police began. One
demonstrator told the JTA that
he had to identify Kahane and
explain his confrontation tactics
to the students.

The Aim of Prayer
Prayer is an expression of man's quest for the Divine and
his longing to unite his soul with God, the Source. The ultimate
aim of prayer is the communion with the Supreme Will, "The
Source of All Life." The will in Kabbalistic teachings is con-
sidered the highest of emanations concealed in Gods Power. It
is the Creator working through the Primal Will. The major book
in Kabbala, the Zohar, calls the unity of Ein-Sof (Infinite) with
the Supreme Will the Attika Kaddisha (The Ancient One). The
Primordial Will (Ha-Chefez Ha-Kadmon) is not identical with
the Greater But like a garment (La-Vush) emanating from him.
In our prayers we do not need an intermediary; "The Lord "-
is near to all who call upon Him in Truth." (Psalms 145:18) The ;
individual praying, by his own innate spiritual attributes, lends f
weight to his prayers. The Prophet Ezekiel said. "It is not the ;
worthiness of the Petitioner in Prayer that counts but of those |
for whom he is praying." (Ezekiel 14:14)
The Torah sees prayer as a spiritual bridge between man .
and God, inbred with a sense of fellowship with the Master of All
Creation. It is an I-Thou relationship, for man not only I
beseeches God, but He also, seeks man. (Isiah 50:2). Prayer |
must be accompanied by devotion and enthusiasm and stern
from the heart. It should never be ground out as if from a
machine. ;
THE BUDDHISTS of the Far East used to paste their f
prayers on a wheel, and then revolve it as their form of worship.
The time the wheel revolved was considered important to i
personal prayer. Some wealthy Chinese and Japanese took
advantage of this custom. They attached an electric motor to the
| wheel. It would then revolve day and night, thus addressing the
Lord without halt. The worshippers, themselves, would go about I
their business, for the wheel kept on praying for the absentee :
We must be ever on guard that our synagogues and our {
leaders make our prayers meaningful so that they be uttered in
purity in the flame of worship.
It must become a symphony of faith and religious devotion:
the union of the Jew in every age with that of his forefathers,
binding him spiritually with the children of Israel in all the four
corners of the world.
The Siddur (Prayer Book) is an outgrowth of the Scrip-
tures. Its language is the classic Biblical Hebrew, or oc-
casionally in the A ramie. Through many phases and excerpts
the words and inspirations of the Bible are woven into its
texture. More than 50 of the Psalms are found in the Siddur.
Two thousand years ago, when the last of the Prophets had
spoken. Judaism continued to speak in creative ecstasy through
the Prayer Book.
THE PRINCIPAL prayers were instituted to correspond
with the ritual of prayer and sacrifice in the Temple (Bite-
Hamikdoshlon Mount Zion. It was the Prophet Hosea who, after
the destruction, issued the call, "Return To Your Creator
Through Prayer."
From numerous sources of mystical literature from both
Talmudic and Gaonic periods it can be seen that Kabbilistic
prayers in the Aramic Language were used. Some of these were
compiled and inserted into the Siddur. For example, the Prayer
taken from the Zohar (Va-Yakheil called "Brjch Shmai
D'Murah." believed to date from 50 C.E.
Blessed be Thy name. Lord of the universe: blessed be Thy
Crown; blessed by Thine abiding place.
May Thy favor by with They people of Israel forever. In Thy
Temple reveal to Thy people. Thy right hands redeeming power.
Grant us of Thy beneficient light and accept our prayer in
mercy. May it be Thy will to prolong our life in goodness. May it
be counted amongst the rightous that Thou mayest show me
Love. Thou art He who rules over all, for dominion is Thine.
I AM the servant of the Holy one, blessed be He before
Whom and before Whose glorious Torah I bow at all times. Not
on man do I rely, nor do I lean on a Son of God, but only on the
God of the heavens, who is the God of Truth and whose <
Prophets are true, and who does Goodness and Truth. In Him
alone is my trust, and to His Holy Name, I declare praises.
May it be Thy will to open my heart to Thy Torah, and to
fulfill the desires of my heart and the heart of all Thy people
Israel for Good, for Life and for Peace, Amen.
Hear O Israel, The Lord Is Our God, The Lord Is One.

Judaism never ceases to im-
press me with its relevancy to
issues. Two pieces of what I refer
to as the Pesach "puzzle." bring
to the fore some of the best of
what Judaism has to offer. One
"piece" is that on Passover, one
must feel slavery for oneself and
then later, experiece and rejoice
in the God-given freedom from it.
The other part centers around
slavery, oppression, and the
strangers to which these types of
things normally happen.
Jews do not simply give lip
service to the eternal idea of
freedom. We institutionalize it,
make it part of the annual cycle
of holidays spending an entire
evening (or two) discussing it.
Every Jew is encouraged to view
the Exodus as if he she per-
sonally participated in its oc-
currence. Without truly feeling
the slavery of Egypt, Judaism
suggests that you cannot truly
understand or feel freedom.
Sad to say, during the past few
months especially, it has become
relatively easy for us to em-
pathize with individuals who
have had their freedoms taken
from them. At this writing, the
50 American hostages in Iran
have been denied their freedoms
for 136 days! The ubiquitous
television has carried the pain of
this ordeal into our homes. The
detailed stories we hear con-
cerning their captivity and the
abuses they constantly face
impact deeply on our lives.
If it is difficult for a Jew to
really experience the slavery of
Egypt, think of Iran. Or Bogota.
Entebbe. Vietnam. Cam-
bodia .
FEELING that slavery,
savoring its bitterness, tension,
anxiety, and dwelling on it for a
while can become a cleansing

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
TZAV This sidra continues to describe the laws of sacrifice
for the individual, for the congregation, and for the priests. The
previous sidra, Vayikra. spoke to the Children of Israel and
concerned the whole people. This sidra was meant to be a ritual
guide book for the priests.
All the Israelites were assembled before the Tabernacle,
when Moses made it holy and anointed Aaron as High Priest.
This is how Moses made Aaron the High Priest. He washed
Aaron and his sons, put the tunic on Aaron, tied the sash around
his waist, dressed him in the robe and breastplate in which he
had placed the holy Urim and Tummim. Then he set the golden
crown upon his head. Next, Moses sprinkled some of the
anointing oil upon the head of Aaron.
Then he said to Aaron and his sons: "For seven days you
must not leave the Tabernacle. In this time, you will make
yourself holy for service to God."
On the eighth day, Moses summoned Aaron and his sons
and said: "Offer a sacrifice upon the Altar before God." Aaron
did so. Then Moses and Aaron blessed the Children of Israel.

W. Germans Sell Weapons Secretly
West German businessmen are secretly trying
to sell weapons to at least four Arab countries,
according to documents gathered by the London
Observer. The largest of the projected arms sales
contracts is for 42,000 military vehicles for Syria
made by Magirus-Deutz Company, the Observer
said. Another projected contract is for ultracen-
trifugal machines for Libya to enable the country
to make atomic bombs.
* Other projected contracts, the Observer
reported, are for Leopard assault tanks for Saudi
Arabia and 2,000 Magirus-Etuz military vehicles
for Iraq. In an exculsive front page story, details
are given of deals in the pipeline which, if con-
cluded, would be of immense benefit to Syria,
Libya, Saudi Arabia and Iraq. Libya, for
example, would be able to make a nuclear bomb,
and Syria would be able to reduce its dependence
on Soviet supplies.
The consortium of companies calling them-
selves the NATO Standard Company, and in-
cluding Magirus-Deutz are also shown by the
Observer report to have played a vital part in the
Yom Kippur War. The document states: "It was
this firm which found how to break the sand walls
and barriers of the Suez Canal Within six
weeks, the firm produced the necessary water-
cannon and delivered them to Egypt a week
before the outbreak of war. The firm engineers
supervised the training of Egyptians in the use of
the water-cannon."
Gaynor I. Jacobson, Executive Vice President
of HIAS, the worldwide Jewish migration
agency, has disclosed that 20 state and city

of effecting gubernatorial proclamations, are
Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida.
Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts,
Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York,

Centennial Week will reach its climax on
Sunday, Mar. 23, when Max Fisher, noted indus-
trialist and philanthropist, will become the
recipient of the HIAS Liberty Award at a dinner
to be held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.

helped resettle more than six million refugees, will

asked to be considered for the
OSI directorship at the end of
Rockier's tenure on Mar. 31. At
the culmination of a series of
personal and political clashes be-
tween Rockier and Mendelsohn,
and to insure continuity at
Rockler's departure, Ryan
became deputy director on Jan. 7,
replacing Mendelsohn. Mendel-
sohn is now elsewhere in the
Criminal Division, in a "fairly
senior capacity," according to
"I took the job (with OSI)
because I was convinced it was a
job that needed doing,"' Ryan
"THERE ARE relatively few
areas in law which you can be
certain every morning when you
wake up that you are doing
something important to see that
justice is done. After having been
through Yad Vashem (the Holo-
caust memorial in Jerusalem) I
have no doubt that what I*m
doing must be done. There are
people still alive who took part in
the Nazi process of inhumanity
and some of them are in this
country." He said he feels "ob-
ligated to do everything humanly
possible under the law to bring
them into account."
"Ideally the goal of the OSI
should be to locate every Nazi
war criminal and collaborator in
the United States, denaturalize
them if they are citizens, and
deport them all," he continued.
"As a practical matter, it's very
unlikely we'll find every single
one. They don't advertise their
The OSI now has some 400
files and is "opening cases
literally every day." Rvan said.
This total includes the 250 cases
that the unit "inherited" from
the Justice Department's Special
Litigation Unit (SLU). Stressing
that not every lead turns out to
be a war criminal, he referred to
one preliminary investigation
that revealed a named suspect
had in fact been born in 1946.
ASSISTANT Attorney Gen-
eral Philip Heymann, who over-
sees OSI, wrote a letter to
American Jewish leaders last
Jan. 11 saying, "Our goal for the
immediate future is to reach the
end of 1980 with all files in one of
two statuses: either having been
filed with the court or having
been closed entirely for lack of
Clarifying Heymann's
statement, Ryan said this was
true only of the 250 SLU cases.
He stressed that no case would be
"swept under the carpet" just to
meet the deadline. The unit is
aiming for the Dec. 31 date, but
will continue investigations
beyond that date whenever
