Eban Voices Veiled
Support of President
(JTA) Former Foreign
Minister Abba Kban of Israel has
issued a veiled endorsement of
President Carter when he stated
that "a President that helped us
achieve a peace treaty that we
never achieved before and under
whose regime we have received
$10 billion worth of aid, more
than in all the treaties of 26 years
put together, cannot be subject
to any derogatory reference by an
Israeli This is in the full
tradition of the support of every
American President from
Truman to Carter."
Eban. who is visiting the
United States as a scholar-in-
residence at Princeton
University's Institute for
Advanced Studies, addressed a
capacity crowd of 1250 at Temple
Beth El here.
HE HELD that the in-
tertwined historv of Jews and
Moslems in the Middle East is
perceived in radically different
ways by the two groups, both of
which views impeded con-
ciliation. Arab Moslems, ac-
cording to Eban, see the Mideast
as their region "so that anything
in it that is not Arab or Moslem
reflects itself in their imagination
as external. alien, hostile,
disconcerting, artificial. They
have a monolithic view of the
Middle East."
On the other hand, the Israelis
conceive of the Middle East as "a
tapestry of many colors of which
the central thread was woven by
Jewish experience for thousands
of years," Eban said.
In spite of such a profoundly
different conceptual framework,
the Israeli-Egyptian accords
hammered out at Camp David
caused "a breach in both walls,"
Eban said. He affirmed that
continuing negotiations will
serve to temper both Arab
rejection and Israeli suspicion.

French Envoy Gets Angry 'Gram

Although Kinneret moved to the United
States, Israel is a very important element in the
members' lives. Most of their music is from or
about Israel, and they hope to return there for
future performances.
"We are totally different from anybody else in
the world," says Darlene Kummer Reuben.
"We'll try anything." From these efforts comes
the effect desired by Kinneret an effect of total
Jewishness flowing through the bloodstream. A
flowing movement equivalent to the flowing
waves of the Sea of Galilee Yam Kinneret.
The Canadian Jewish Con-
Pierre Maillard, the French
Ambassador to Canada, expressing shock at the
desecration last week of 22 Canadian Jewish graves in the
military cemetery of Normandy.
THE 22 were among 1,000 Canadian soldiers who
were killed in the Allied landings in Normandy which
heralded the liberation of France from Nazi occupation.
The 22 tombstones were overturned and smashed and
vandals scrawled anti-Semitic slogans on them.
Rabbi W. Gunther Plaut, CJC president, and Alan
Rose, CJC executive vice president, in their cable to
Maillard, expressed the hope that an investigation will
expose the culprits and bring them to justice.
Hadassah Corrects the Record
References in stories from Israel
referring to a group of Kiryat
Arba women squatters in a
Jewish-owned building in Hebron
as "Hadassah women" is in-
correct, a spokesperson for
Hadassah stated.
No members of that
organization are participating in
the Hebron sit-in. In addition,
the building which is frequently
referred to as the "Hadassah
hospital" or the "Hadassah
clinic" is not and never was a
hospital or a Hadassah building,
the spokesperson said. "It was a
building in which Hadassah
rented space for a clinic."

What is a Jew? I
The recent decision by the Small Business
Administration to reject an application to designate
the 100.000 to 150,000 Hasadim in the United States
as "a socially and economically disadvantaged
group" on the grounds that it would be a violation of:
the Constitutional requirement of separation of
church and state was an example of bureaucratic nit-
The Hasidim are, of course, a definite religious
group. But they were not asking for federal funds for
their yeshivas. but as special designation as a
minority group. The SBA readily admits that the
evidence was overwhelming that Hasadim experience
prejudice and discrimination in employment. The
SBA did try to mitigate its decision by noting that
it is frankly anticipated that the typical Hasidic
entrepreneur will have little difficulty in establishing
his or her social disadvantage."
The difficulty the Hasidim are undergoing with
the SBA is one that Hasidim and other poor Jews
have been experiencing in other areas where Jews
have sought to be included among the disadvantaged
minorities entitled to federal aid. It is also part of a
larger issue which will eventually have to be dealt
with by the entire American Jewish community.
Benefits and Conflicts
Jews have found greater freedom, equality and
prosperity in the United States, despite dis-
crimination, partly because of the separation of
church and state. In the countries from which they
came they were not considered true citizens even
though they had lived there for hundreds and even
thousands of years. But in the U.S.. Jews have
always been officially considered just another
This conflict is becoming more urgent because of
the question of Israel, because of the problems of the
large number of poor Jews and because many Jews
have become part of the American trend toward
ethnic pride.
In Israel, the argument is over "Who is a Jew."
American Jewry will have to come to grips with
"What is a Jew."
I picked up my copy of the
Sew York Times the expatriate
New Yorker's Bible the other
morning and there it said in a
three-column heading, "Jews in
the Thousands Join Migration to
Sun Belt." Automatically, my
eye slid over the top heads in
Iran, inflation and The Campaign

the Times' editors must have
regarded as of special im-
Four paragraphs down in the
story, I discovered that it was
based on a news release issued by
the American Jewish Committee
seven weeks previously but
jazzed up and given approriate
topical cover by Times reporters
in the field.
NOW I know there has been a
substantial movement of Jews
from the Northern tier to the Sun
Belt most of them elderly
retirees fleeing the rigors of the
Northern winters but including a
rising percentage of younger
Jews, mainly professionals, who
have recognized that the new

I can see it here in my own
town in Florida where the Jewish
population has increased at least
threefold since we took refuge
here few years ago. But while
the Jewish community has in-
creased in siae, so has the general
population. What was a quiet
backwater has become to the
sorrow of many a bustling

wife and I settled here, a

synagogue have been built here

I know, too, that Florida
claims a larger Jewish im-
migration annually than the
State of Israel, but then Florida
is one of the fastest growing
states in the Union, and it is most
unlikely that the Jewish im-
migration is much out of
proportion to the total volume
Still, if the Times talks of "tens
of thousands" of migrating Jews,
it sounds as though there is a big
Jewish population movement. So
I checked the statistics compiled
over the years for the AJCs
American Jewish Year Book
going back to the 1971 figures.
THE MOST important fact,
glossed over in the Times story,
is that American Jewish
population growth is at little
more than the zero level. The
second fact, brought out in the
Yearbook's demographic tables.

paralleling that of the general
population. The virtual zero
growth rate of American Jewry
parallels that of the Jewish
communities abroad. In eight
years, the American Jewish
community decreased by nearly
In 1971. 24 percent of the
population of tae United States
lived in the Northeast -
49.591.000. including 63.2 per-
cent of the Jews of the country,
or 3.828,135. By 1979. the
Northeast's population had
dropped to 49,081,000 or 22.5
percent of the nation's
During this period, the Nor-
theast's Jewish population
dropped to 3.393.620 or 57.9
percent of the national toUL So.
n eight years, the Northeast lost
434.815 Jews. During the same
period, the Souths Jewish
population increased by 232.780
from all sources, including
natural growth, while the general
population increased by more
than 6.5 million.
THE Times singled out the
Sun Belt states Arizona,
California. Florida. Georgia,
Hawaii and Texas for special
mention as having had an "in-
flux" of Jews. WeU, in eight
years, the Jewish population of
Arizona increased from 21.000 to

number of Jews actually
decreased from 721,046 in 1971 to
698,996 in 1979 and from 3.66
percent of the population to 3.1
percent. In the eight years, the
Jewish population of the Los
Angeles Metropolitan Area
slipped by 80,000, indicating that
some of the rapid growth
reported by communities like San
Diego may have been the result
of a shift of families from
metropolitan to leas developed
In Florida, the retiree's
promised land, the Jewish
population jumped from 260,000
in 1971 to 436.668 in 1979, while
the total population increased by
more than 1.5 million, leaving the'
Jewa with their increased
numbers, actually a smaller
proportion of the population.
Certainly, many of the Jewish
newcomers had problems ad-
justing in the South, in becoming
acclimated, in adapting to a
slower pace and different style of
living, but hardly more so than
the non-Jew. in some cases.
Jewish newcomers may have
encountered anti-Semitic

oppressors pay a price for it.
The Sonderkommando was
separated from the rest of the
prisoners in the camp because
they knew too much, and must be
prevented from telling others
about the mass exterminations of
Jews and their forced job of
burning the corpses in the
crematoria. For the same reasons
they were periodically replaced
and sent off discreetly to other
extermination camps to be
gassed and burned there.
In Autumn. 1944. with the Red
Army coming closer, the Nazis
stopped mass transports of Jews
to Auschwitz. This is when the
Sonderkommando knew that
their last hour had come, because
they were not needed any more.
When the Germans then tried to
trick them to go to another camp
in revolt, for they had been
prepared for it from the begin-
THEY SET fire to one of the
crematoria, knifed a hated, brutal
German and threw him into the
burning furnace, and killed a few
other SS -men in face-to-face
battle. They then broke through
the fence and about 300 prisoners
fled. However, they were soon
caught by the Nazis and killed.
Only a few of them survived.
Nevertheless, the prisoners
were encouraged by the revolt,
which gave them new hope.
Having crushed the uprising
successfully, the Nazis wanted to
know how the prisoners got the
dynamite. They infiltrated a Nazi
agent among the forced laborers
at the arms factory and so
discovered where the explosives
had come from.
Four young girls were arrested,

German leaders in both the
government and opposition
parties appeared to be in
agreement on a Middle East
policy favorable to the
Palestinian cause and recognition
of the Palestine Liberation
Organization as a participant in
the peace process.
In a debate broadcast on the
German Radio network Apr. 4,
Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich
Genscher reiterated his support
for the Palestinians' right to self-
determination. He maintained
that its implementation within
the framework of a Middle East
peace settlement might restore
Arab unity which is a major aim
of Bonn's policy in that region.
FORMER Chancellor Willy
Brandt, chairman of the ruling
Social Democratic Party, con-
tended that a considerable
portion of the PLO's leadership
would be favorable to a solution
based on United Nations
Security Council Resolutions 242
and 338 which would enable both
Palestinians and Israelis to live
within secure boundaries in their
respective states.
Brandt met with PLO Chief
Yasir Arafat in Vienna last year,
a move widely interpreted as a
major shift in West Germany's
Middle East position and bitterly
denounced by Israel.
Another participant in the
debate, former Foreign Minister
Gerhard Schroeder of the op-
position Christian Democratic
Union, observed that any lasting
solution to the Arab-Israeli
conflict must offer the
Palestinians the opportunity to
create a state-like entity.
According to Schroeder, Israel
should rely for its security on Big
Power guarantees and
demilitarized zones.
SCHROEDER, who met with
Arafat five years ago the first
German political leader to do so
said he doubted that the
Palestinian issue could be
resolved without the par-
ticipation of the PLO. He said
i hat would test the responsibility
of the Israeli government.

Beruria (Valeria) was the wife or Rabbi Meir. daughter of
the martyr Rabbi Chananiah Ben Teradion. Born in the first
quarter of the second century, she lived in Tiberias after the
Hadrianic persecutions. Her traits of character, as shown by
various Talmudic passages, show intellectual qualities and
attainments as well as feminine tenderness. She was so highly
versed in Torah that Rabbi Judah endorsed a decision of hers, on
a question which was contrary to the view of the Sages (Tosef

sudden death of her two sons on the Sabbath while her husband
Kabbi Meir was in synagogue.
On his return, at the conclusion of the Sabbath, he at once
asked for them. Beruria replied that they had gone to the House
of Study. After her husband had made Havdalah and eaten his
supper. Beruria asked if she may put a question of law to him.
"Rabbi." she said, "sometime ago a deposit was left to me for
safe-keeping and now the owner has come to claim it. Must I
return it?"
"CAN THERE be any question about the return of
property to its owner" said Rabbi Meir. astonished that his wife
should even doubt the obvious answer.
Taking him by the hand she led him into the room in which
the bodies of their two sons were lying on the bed. When she
withdrew the cover. Rabbi Meir broke into tears. Gently Beruria
reminded him of his answer to her question about the return of a
treasure entrusted to one for safe-keeping, adding the verse from
the Book of Job, "The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away:
blessed be the name of the Lord." lYalkut Prov. 9641
This story is found today in many books of modern
Her life was lived in calamitous times.
Beruria. the wife of Rabbi Meir. was a daughter of Rabbi
Chanina B. Teradion. Her father. Rabbi Chanina. was caught
teaching Torah to students The Romans wrapped him in a
Torah scroll, placed bundles of branches around him and set
them on fire. His students called out to him. "Rabbi, what seest
thou?' He answered, "The Torah parchments are being burnt,
but the letters are soaring on high
As a further punishment for teaching Torah, his youngest
daughter, sister of Beruria. was placed in a brothel by the
BERURIA said to her husband Rabbi Meir. "1 am ashamed
to have my sister placed in brothel. Help her escape." Rabbi
Meir look a tarkab la dry measure) full of denarii (gold pieces)
and set out to rescue her. He said. "If she has not been subjected
to anything wrong, a miracle will be wrought for her. Disguised
as a knight, he came to the brothel and said to her. "Prepare
thyself for me."
She replied. The manner of women is upon me (men-
struation)." "I am prepared to wait." he said. But," said she.
"there are here many girls prettier than I am that you can
choose for a night." Rabbi Meir. said to himself, that proves
that she is still pure, she no doubt says that to all men who seek
her out.
He then went to the warden (guard) and said. "Hand her
over to me and I will give you this measure of gold pieces.
Distribute one-half as a bribe: the other half, keep for thyself. If
anyone troubles you because of this girl's escape, exclaim "0,
God of Meir Help Me.' and you will be saved."
Later, when the girl's escape was found out and the Roman
government notified, the warden was found guilty and sen-
tenced to hang. On the gallows, he called out, "0. God of Meir
answer me They took him down and asked him what he meant,
he then told them about Rabbi Meir. His life was spared.
Beruria s womanly tenderness and compassion is shown by
the following:
There were once some highwaymen in the neighborhood of
Rabbi Meir who caused him a great deal of trouble. Rabbi Meir
accordingly prayed that they should die. His wife, Beruria
(sometimes known as Valeria), said to him: "Why do you think
that a prayer for the death of bad people is permitted. Is it
perhaps, because it is written, Let Chatta-lm cease?' Is it really
written chot-im (sinners)? It is written chatta-im (sins). Further,
look at the end of the verse, and let the wicked men be no more.
Since the sins will cease, there will be no more wicked men!
Rather pray for them that they should repent, and there will be
no more wicked sinners.' Rabbi Meir prayed for them, and
they turned away from their wicked ways, they repented.

that in 1979. the rein\estmeni

success due to the magnificent
response of Jews throughout the

decisive factor that achieved a

percent Bonds to members of the
Jewish community.
"But we cannot rest on our
laurels. Over *83 million in

mature during 1980 This figure,
combined with the amount of
matured bonds still outstanding,
means that there will be over

Sadat in Bloom
Begin to be a Mere Afterthought
IJTA) Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat left
Washington with flourishes
of good will for Americans,
the Palestinians and other
Arahs, West Europeans,
the Third World and, in the
glow of a crowded press
conference, a promise of
support of 800 million
Moslems for the United
States in an anit-Soviet
alliance if Washington
accepts the Arab concept of
a Mideast peace.
Sadat also held out
suggestions to Israeli Prime
Minister Menacbetn Begin whose
tum at the White House with
President Carter came Tuesday
and Wednesday. If "my friend
Begin" accedes to "the spirit" of
Camp David, the further talks
among the emissaries of Egypt.
Israel and the US on West
Bank-Gaza autonomy could
foUow next week and even a
three-way summit soon afterward
to culminate the Camp David
process, he said.
BUT COUPLED with that was
a waning that if Begin dose not
move toward his interpretations,
then there are "alternatives' like
the French-British-German
initiative to amend UN Security
Council Resolution 243 that
would bring the Palestinians into
the negotiations and redefine
international security for Israel
Since Resolution 242 in its
present form underpins the Camp
David formulas and President
Carter ia pubbefy committed to
it. observers believe Sadat may
be out on a limb in this
maneuver. But they also recall
the "mistake" in the last U.S.
vote in the Security Council and
wonder whether the Carter
Administration's legal specialists
cannot find reasons to get around
the commitment if May 26
arrives without tangible
narrowing of the Israeli-Egyptian
Some analysts consider Ssdat
to have shrewdly capitalised on
the perceived weaknesses in the
Pmuitnt Sadat
Carter Administration with
accusations hurled against it
both here and abroad that it lacks
the will and power to challenge
the Soviet Union. Iran and even
radicals in Colombia.
SADAT THUS presented
himself ss the master strategist
of a "victory" for the
Administration in the Arab-
larsek conflict by having Begin
bludgeoned into concessions.'

here with a Cabinet decision
binding him against fianiwing
Jerusalem, since it is not part of
the Camp David formula
regarding autonomy. The Stats
Department, however, has in-
dicated he will not be allowed to
stay mum. President Carter, it
was said, will raise issues and
then it will be up to Degai to
decide whether he will respond.
This puts Begin in a position of
risking being spotlighted again in
the world media as the "in-
transigent'' who refuses to
discuss "progress" toward
autonomy in the spirit'' of
Camp David.
In his final meeting with
reporters last Thursday at the
National Press Club, following
conclusion of his official talks.
Sadat hammered at Israel's West
Bank settlements, called for Arab

pation in any form, and

five years of autonomy" on the
West Bank and Gaza.
IF HIS PRESS Club speech
is what he really means, then
Sadat has destroyed the Camp
David formula, but he may not
mean that privately.' an in-
dependent foreign correspondent
observed. He said that even as
Sadat was challenging Israel to
give ground to the Palestinian
Arabs. Sadat was saying that
differences with Israel do not
threaten the Egyptian-Israeli
peace treaty.
"The normalization between us
is a fact, and there is no going
back." Sadat said. The corres-
pondent thus summarized that
"as of now Sadat's position
toward Israel is uncertain and
puzzling, but there is no question
he has woven a thorny carpet for
Begin in Washington.
Sadat indicated that "certain
specific steps" are envisaged by
him and Carter, such as self-
government for the Palestinians
first in Gaza and possibly leaving
the water resources problem on
the West Bank to the Palestinian
Arabs and Israelis.
HE MADE a bow to the Pates
tinians by asking Israel to
perform con fide nee-building
measures" such aa freeing
political prisoners, lifting
restrictions on political activities
on the West Bank and Gaza, and
reuniting Arab families.
No indication was made that,
according to the State Depart-
ment's Human Rights Report in
February. Israel has already
allowed 50.000 Arabs to return to
Israeli-controlled areas. At the
same time, any Jewish presence
on the West Bank is bitterly

broke an agreement with Egypt
for new West Bank settlements
He said they disturbed the quiet
atmosphere' required for suc-

was asked to explain his state-

was "not written but was in the
spirit" of the Camp David
meetings 18 months ago.

SADAT, in his parting
comments, said "At this moment
there are lots of difficulties and
new developments in the area
where we live namely
Afghanistan, Iran, the threat to
the (Persian) Gulf all this, in
my view, should enhance the
efforts for finding an agreement
of full autonomy for the
Palestinians" as set forth in the
Camp David documents.
Sadat emphasized that the
"Palestinian question is the core
and crux of the whole problem in
the Middle East and the Arab-Is-
raeli conflict."
He credited President Carter's
"decision to act as a full partner"
in the discussions as "a turning
point in the history of the conflict
and behind all the achievements
in the last two years." Sadat
concluded, "As I promised

President Carter the negative
effect on Soviet Jewish aliya of

Refugee Act of 1980 during his

In a meeting with Begin here
Apr. 3. Dulzin stressed while the
new U.S. law was "a positive and
humanitarian bill," the Prime
Minister should explain to the
U.S. President that Soviet
emigrants cannot be considered
political refugees since they all
; have exit visas to Israel.
although the law does not imply
any specific benefits to Soviet
Jewish emigrants, the new bill
may be mistaken by Jews coming
out of the Soviet Union to mean
that they will receive increased
benefits and thus encourage the
already very high dropout rate.
Dulzin said he wanted to
of emphasize that Jews leaving the
and USSR are not political refugees
because they left it legally and
are already citizens of Israel
under the I>aw of Return. He said
the dropout rate is endangering
Soviet Jewish emigration.
He noted that recently Soviet
authorities have been refusing
visas for Jews whose relatives
left the USSR with visas for
Israel but then settled in the
United States. "Every dropout
prevents aliya of another Jew,"
Dulzin told the JTA.
IN AN OPEN letter to
Haarvtt. Dulzin again stressed
the U.S. bill was a humanitarian
law. "Nobody wants to compel
Jews who do not so wish, to come
and settle in Israel," he said. But,
he added, Israel cannot approve
allowing the visa to Israel, which
Soviet Jews must get in order to
emigrate, to become "a mere
transit paper."
Dulzin said American Jews
"have a right" to see to it that
Soviet Jews who want to come to
I ho U.S. get direct entry visas.
"The U.S.A. will do what she has
Ui do as leader of the free world
and as a shelter for persecuted
people," Dulzin stated.
"Israel will not aid Jews to
exchange one diaspora with
another ."
