Itudy Reagan Cuts on Jewish Poor
New York Biggest Loser In Budget-Busting Moves
National and local
wish organizations are
ing to assess the impact
the Jewish community
the massive budget cuts
iroposed by President
eagan and to devise
leans of dealing with this
ew situation.
Hut although the Administra-
lon did not formally introduce in
congress until Tuesday proposed
built-''' f|,r tne 1982 fiscal year,
rhich begins Oct. 1, the Jewish
|e)egraphic Agency, in a survey
conducted, found that most or-
ganizations expect many of their
Programs to be hit. particularly
those dealing with the poor, the
elderly, the young.
THIS IS because Reagan's
Administration has already
announced plans to cut S41.4
billion from 83 federal programs
in 1982 and make even deeper
cuts in succeeding years. The Re-
publican-controlled Senate is
expected to attempt to pass the
President's budget as swiftly as
possible, but there are signs that
the Democratic-controlled House
may seek to delay action in an
effort to prevent some of the cuts-.
Meanwhile, Reagan announced
that he wants to cut another $3 to
$.r> billion so that the Administra-
tion can hold to its goal of a
federal spending ceiling of $695.5
billion in 1982.
No one is against taking steps
to "tighten up programs," Albert
Chernin, executive vice president
of the National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC), said. He said
the NJCRAC has not "arrived at
a definitive judgement" on the
proposed reductions, but there is
"reoson to be somewhat
NJCRAC's Commission on
F.qual Opportunity and the Com-
mittee on Public Issue of the
Council of Jewish Federations
(CJF) will hold a joint meeting
here Friday to assess the "im-
plications" of the Administration
proposals and to decide "what
posture" to take toward them.
He said that along with assess-
ing the impact on the Jewish
Community, the "broader im-
Arab Oil Wealth
[New World Banking System Emerging
Armed with surpluses
totaling billions of dollars
and growing each year
Arab oil producing
states are building a new
international banking
system, the American Jew-
ish Congress reported in
[the latest issue of its pub-
[licat ion, Boycott Report.
Warning that Organization of
llVtroli'um Exporting Countries
|{0PEC) petrodollars could give
Ithe Arabs "unprecedented in-
Iflucnce over Western economics
and politics," Boycott Report
said the OPEC surplus of $7
billion in 1973 has grown to $343
billion. Of this sum, $120 billion
was added in 1980 alone. Arab
countries which formerly bor-
rowed through international
bond and credit markets are now
increasingly turning to Arab
banks, according to the Boycott
Report. It added:
"In the last few months, every
major syndicated loan from the
Mideast has been led or co-led by
an Arab institution. A further
signal of the decline of American
bank influence in the Midwest is
the sale by Citibank of control of
its branches in Saudi Arabia, a
sale compelled by Saudi
authorities. All other foreign
banks in that country have
already been nationalized."
AJCongress report, there are five
types of Arab banks:
+ Government banks (or the
treasury departments of Mideast
states) which act directly aa
commercial banks for
example, the Saudi Arabian
Monetary Authority (SAMA).
+ Arab development banks,
such as the Islamic Development
Bank and the Arab Fund for
Social and Economic Develop-
ment, which make subsidized
loans to Moslem countries
suffering from oil deficits.
+ Quasi-governmental banks,
such as the Kuwait Investment
Co.; Kuwait Foreign Trade,
Contacting and Investment Co.;
and Kuwait International
Investment Co.. which play a
large role in the Eurodollar
+ Consortium banks, such as
the Union de Ranques Arabes et
Francaise (UBAF) and Banque
Arabe et Internationale
de'Investissment (BAII), in
which many American and Euro-
pean banks participate.
+ "Private" banks, such as
the newly-formed Arab Banking
Corp. (owned by Kuwait, Libya
and Abu Dhabi), which has an
authorized capitol of $1 billion
and engages in loan syndications,
project-and-trade-financing and
Eurobank trading.
AN INDICATION of the flow
of petrodollars is the plan of the
National Bank of Abu Dhabi to
establish a branch in
Washington, D.C., to be used to
recycle oil money through the
Western hemisphere.
Meanwhile, Boycott Report
disclosed that Arab efforts to
buy equity interests in U.S.
banks continue. Suliman Olayam
has acquired stock in nine banks,
including a 7.5 percent stake
I (together with his partner, Prince
Khalad of Saudi Arabia) in the
First Chicago Corporation, the
ninth largest bank holding
company in the country.

Cross Burnings
Georgia, Indiana Worried
By New Anti-Semitism
A cross-burning outside
a synagogue building under'
construction in an Atlanta,
Ga. suburb Feb. 20 and the
desecration of a synagogue
in Evansville, Ind. by
vandals two days later have
aroused serious concern in
both communities and
among Jews generally, less
for the damage done, than
over the implications of the
anti-Semitic acts.
According to Seth Eisenberg,
editor of a Jewish publication in
Louisville, Ky., unidentified per-
sons armed with red paint
sprayed swastikas, "white
power" and other racist slogans
on the walls of the Adath B'nai
Israel synagogue in Evansville, s
town in southern Indiana with a
Jewish population of 1,200. The
incident occurred in the early
hours of Feb. 22. Children re-
porting for Sunday school classes

with the hate messages.
vers, president of the Evansville
congregation, it was the second
incident of its type in the past 18
months. It differed from the first
in that it was not followed by
bate letters and telephone calls,
he said. Three days later, the
home of Rabbi Michael Herz-
brun, spiritual leader of the con-
gregation, was ransacked by
what police called "professional
burglars" who did damage esti-
mated at 110,000.
Bambi Levy, writing in The
Southern Israelite of Atlanta, re-
ported that the cross-burning at
Beth Shalom synagogue occurred

the congregation, including

(Call me about your social news
at 872-4470.)
We recently heard some terrific news about 15 year old
Robin Rosenberg and her outstanding expertise in the field of
debating, so we thought you would like to hear about it too.
Robin is a sophomore at Plant High School, is a member of the
debate team under the auspices of the National Forensic League.
Last month Robin competed ;n the district competition, speci-
fically in the "Lincoln-Dour^as" event (which is a one on one
debating format) and she was one of the five winners in the
district. So, these top five from the west coast district (which in-
cludes Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Clearwater and
Bradentonl will go to to compete in the state competition being
held in March on the University of South Florida campus.
Connie and Seth Rosenberg, Robin's parents, were, needless to
say very proud of their daughter's accomplishment especially
since Robin had to be completely prepared to debate on three
different topics and was not told which one it would be until she
got to Robinson High School, where the district competition was
held. Robin, we are really proud of you too!
Our heartiest congratulations to Manuel and Rose Arono-
vitz on their 63rd wedding anniversary. I n celebration of the big

As if being installed as the new president of Congregation
Rodeph Sholom was not exciting enough, the following night
Howard Sinaley was given a surprise 50th birthday party. This
secret "bash" was held at the home of Mike and Diane Levine,
and through Howard's wife's Nina's expert planning eighty^
friends and family gathered to help the birthday boy celebrate.
Nina and the children had a surprise family portrait made for
Howard, Terry Sinaley, Howard's mother, presented him with a
collage of photographs depicting "babyhood, growing up,
service, career, and family." Nina's parents, Mildred and Ralph
Garner of Fort Lauderdale came for the festivities as did nine's
sister and her husband Jo-Anne and George Schoen, from
Riverdale. New York. In addition, for the first time, all of the
grandchildren were together (they range in age from one and a
half years to 20 years old.) Well lots of good wishes and love to
you Howard, on this milestone occasion.
Three rousing cheers for Cindy Sper who was one of twenty-
one Tampa ana sale- professionals honored for her outstanding
performance and achievements in her sales profession. Cindy, a
Real Estate \gent with FRA Henderson Realty Corporation.
was presented with her "Distinguished Sales Award" at the
25th anniversary dinner of the Sales and Marketing Executives
of Tampa Guest speaker at this lovely banquet was Ernest
Para da. vice president and marketing manager for ConAgra and
the 19X0-81 international president of the sales organization. We
think this recognition is just marvelous and surely well
deserved. Our wishes for an equally as successful year in 1981!
What happens when the United States' Readiness Forces
arc put on alert? What role will MacDill Air Force Base play in
such a situation? Well, the members of the Men's Clubs of
Congregation Schaarai Zedek and Congregation Kol Ami found
out at a jointly held dinner meeting this past week. Major
General Robert C. Taylor, USAF provided answers to these
questions along with some insight into the Rapid Deplyment
Joint Task Force during his fascinating talk. General Taylor a
native of Danforth. III., was commissioned in 1932. He is a
command pilot and has flown over 4.300 hours, primarily in
fighter aircraft such as the F-4. In addition, he has served as
2St2iyi ass,sUnl to three secretaries of defense including
Melvin Laird. Elliott Richardson, and James Schlesinger. Also,
General Taylor has served as commander of the 314th Air
Division and U.S. Air Forces in Korea.
Needless to say. along with a delicious catered Italian
dinner, the men enjoyed an outstanding evening of brotherhood
and pertinent information.

locked away in a box and forgotten until maturity, municipals must be as
carefully selected and managed as anv other investments.

ability to:
Research issues to determine their relative merits.

The Secret Plan
The story is that there is a secret European
Economic Community plan to implement their
Venice declaration of last June. The declaration is
essentially a reworking of the old Rogers plan in the
early Nixon years, its purpose being to force Israel
back into its pre-1967 borders.
One rumor has it that a second pincer movement
is to shake Israel loose even of the Negev dessert as
the ultimate threat.
The EEC denies the whole thing. We, for our
part, would not at all be surprised. The better part of
valor would be to wait for Secretary of State Haig's
trip to the Middle East during the first week of April
to take its course and see what comes of it.
We are being given to believe from the Reagan
sanctus sanctorum that there is a better un-
derstanding of Israel's survival needs than the likes
of Britain, France and Germany are willing to
acknowledge. Long accustomed to the kind of
traitorous activity that characterized Chamberlain
and Munich in the days of Hitler, the Europeans
would certainly be delighted to trade Israel away for
a couple of barrels of Arab oil.
But we do not rely on a better Reagan under-
standing of Israel's survival needs alone than the
gutless Europeans can muster. What we rely on are
America's military needs, which seem in greater
consonance with a strong Israel than with an Israel
amputated and at the mercy of Europe's
petrowolves. Still, nothing would surprise us.
And so, we are impelled to wait and see. And to
continue to pray as we prayed in these columns last
week that Prime Minister Begin on June 30 upsets
everybody's apple cart.
COMES a letter from an irate

Feds Arrest Six Nazis Silver-Haired Power Due on Capitol
On Conspiracy Charges
NEW YORK Federal authorities have arrested six
American Nazis and supporters on charges of conspiring
to blow up buildings in Greensboro, N.C. if a group of Ku
Klux Klansman and Nazis were found guilty of murdering
five leftist demonstrators.
The indictment, which resulted from an investigation
by the Bureau of Alchohol, Tobacco and Firearms,
charged the six with conspiring to blow up a petroleum
storage facility, a chemical fertilizer plant, a shopping
mall and part of downtown Greensboro.
Among the targets were the Guilford County Court-
house, where the trial was held which resulted in the ac-
quittal of six Klansmen and Nazis for first degree murder
. in the deaths of five Communist Workers Party members
who were shot to death while staging an anti-Klan rally in
Greensboro on Nov. 3,1979.
AMSTERDAM Netherlands Foreign Minister
Christopher van der Klaauw assured representatives of
European Jewry that the European Economic Com-
munity (EEC) has no intention of opposing the Camp
David peace process and has no secret proposals for solv-
ing the Arab-Israeli conflict. Van der Klaauw spoke in his
capacity as chairman of the Council of Ministers of the
EEC, a post he assumed earlier this year succeeding
Luxembourg's Foreign Minister Gaston Thorn.
He met for 90 minutes with members of the World
Jewish Congress European Branch and other major
Jewish organizations representing the Jewish communi-
ties of the 10 EEC countries.,
"Goodies for Oldies" is the
sardonic way The New Republic
chooses to label the White House
Conference on Aging due up in
December, 1981. The editors put
that mischievous heading on the
piece, while noting that the
gathering of 2,000 silver-haired
delegates, even in its planning
stages, has chewed up $3,000,000
of the taxpayers' money and has
involved a staff of 65.
That's one slanted way of
looking at the confab for the
cause of the rapidly growing
segment of Americans in their
winter years. There are other
approaches: (1) new Census
figures show that 51 percent of
the 714,000 additional people who
fell below the poverty standard in
1979 were 65 or over even though
the elderly count for only about
11 percent of the total
population; (2) strong Older
Americans Act provisions grew
out of the earlier Conference on
Aging; (3) when powerful
bureaucrats in Washington
tinker with Social Security, the
elderly tremble, especially in a
time of devastating inflation; (4)
no group wants all-embracing
medical and hospital care
guarantees more passionately
than the vulnerable aging.
BUT THESE are only the
major concerns. And since this is
also the International Year of
Disabled Persons, affecting
millions of elderly, we shall be
heading a great deal about condi-
tions and needs of these
segments of our population.
Perhaps no American has
served more effectively as
spokesman for the aging over
recent years than Florida's own
Congressman Claude Pepper,
chairman of the House Select
Committee on Aging. An octo-
genarian himself, and the only
member of the House who also
served in the Senate. Claude
Pepper remains vigorous and
vigilant, putting in many 12-hour
days of fighting for legislation
sought by older Americans.
Looking over Pepper's
shoulder, studying notes from
grass roots warm-up sessions for
the Conference on Aging and for
the special needs of the elderly
disabled, I believe the following
digest may prove helpful to those

Thoughts On Purim
One of the fondest memories I
have of the year I spent in Israel
is of my celebration of the festival
of Purim.
All the children of Jerusalem
were dressed in festive costumes.
I not only saw Mordecai and
Esther but also Superman,
Dracula and an astronaut or two
as well. The streets were lined
with smiling faces as bands and
dancers performed in the streets.
One of the busiest intersections
in town was made impassable by
thirty Chassidim dancing around
a man in a wheelchair who was
laughing hysterically.
The most memorable activity I
saw was the citizens of Jerusalem
performing the Mitzvot of
"Mishloach Manot*" and
"Matanot LKvyonim"; sending
gifts to each other and giving
presents to the poor. Everyone,
from the most pious Chassid to
the least religious Israeli, carried
brightly wrapped gifts of fruits,
nuts, wines and cakes through
the streets to present to friends
and relatives. Everyone gave and
everyone received. I even awoke
to find hamantashen in front of
my dormitory room!
When I entered Rabbinical
School I was delighted to find
that the custom of sending gifts
and providing for the poor was
also practiced by my classmates.
We all took rare time off from our
studies to help our wives bake
and assemble packages of tasty
goodies to give our friends. We
also made sure to provide for
those less fortunate than we.
Americans have almost an ob-
session with gift giving. We
exchange presents on birthdays,
anniversaries, Mother's Day,
Father's Day, on Chanukah, and
for no particular reason at all. Yet
I rarely see us exchanging gifts
on Purim, a holiday on which
Rabbi Leonard Rosenthal
lhere is a clear cut precident for
giving the ones we love tokens of
our affection and esteem.
I suggest that we reinitiate
these wonderful traditions. On
Purim we should send hamanta-
shen, candy and other treats to
our children, family and friends.
We might also institute a "Purim
Grab-Bag" in our religious
schools, similar to the ones we
already have on Chanukah. We
could also collect food and
clothing for the needy, or take up
a Tzedakah collection during our
Megillah Readings and Purim
Carnivals.. Such practices could
only augment our Purim joy.
I can think of nothing I would
like better than for one day to
look out of my office window and
see the Jewish community of
Tampa carrying baskets of
goodies to the ones they love on

Rosenberg's Host Exchange Student
For the past six weeks, life
around the Connie and Seth
Rosenberg household has been
livelier than usual. As host
parents to exchange student,
Bella Furman, from Lima, Peru,
they've had another teenager in
the house. That's in addition to
15 year old Robin and 10 year old
Wendy, the Rosenberg's
' daughters.
"Two weeks before the
students were due to arrive, I
received a phone call, said
Connie. "There were two Jewish
students on the American Youth
Exchange coming from Lima, one
girl and one boy. I was being
asked if we would house the girl."
(The boy, Richard Weinstein
stayed with Trudy and Marvin
and Michael Barkin. He left early
to visit Miami relatives and was
not available for interview.)
It didn't take the Rosenbergs
very long to find an answer to
that question. Robin, a Plant
High sophomore spent seven
weeks last summer in Colombia

Did Satmar Hasidic Sect Let Contract on Belzer Rebbe?
|bi Yisochur Dov Rokeach, the
Belzer rebbe, arrived here from
Israel under heavy security
guard because of reported threats
to his life. But a violent street
confrontation between his follow-
ers and members of the rival Sat-
mar Hasidic sect did not
materialize during the reception
held for the rebbe in a public
school auditorium in the heavily
Orthodox Boro Park section of
Rokeach, 33, the only surviv-
ing descendant of the founder of
the movement in Belz, Russia,
200 years ago, will spend two
weeks here visiting schools,
synagogues and social agencies
run by his followers. In a state-
ment read to reporters by an aide,
he said his visit, the first in eight
years, was occasioned by the 30th
anniversary of Belz institutions
in the U.S.
"My prayers are to the Al-
mighty that this convention will
result in the uniting of all groups
of Torah Orthodox Judaism," he
Rokeach, alledgedly from mem-
bers of the Satmar movement,
were responsible for the most
extensive security precautions
taken for any foreign visitor in
recent years. The rebbe and his
entourage were met at Kennedy
Airport by bullet-proof limou-
sines assigned by Mayor Edward
Koch to whisk them to Boro Park
with a police motorcycle escort.
Police barriers were in place in
streets near the private home
where the rebbe is staying and
the city's blue-and-white police
cars were conspicuous all over the
More than 300 police have
surrounded the public school
where the rebbe appeared. Earl-
ier, the building had been
searched by the bomb squad. The
reason was the extreme bitter-
ness between the Belzer and Sat-
mar Hasidim who differ not only
on points of theology but in their
attitude toward Israel.
THE BELZER support the
Israeli government and receive
subventions from it for their
institutions in Israel. They are
Zionists but insist that Israel
must become a "religious state."
The Satmar also have a commu-
nity in Israel but refuse to recog-
nize the government or accept
support from it. They are anti-
Zionist and contend that there
can be no legitimate Jewish state
until the advent of the Messiah.
Some 600 Satmar followers
surrounded a Belzer synagogue
in the Williamsburg section of
Brooklyn for three hours, pelting
it with rocks, bottles and curses
until police forced them to dis-
perse and extricated some 75 Bel-
zer worshippers inside. There
were no injuries or arrests.
Anonymous telephone calls to
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
and other news media over the
weekend claimed that the Belzer
reebe might be "hit" by criminal
elements alledgedly engaged by
the Satmar. Hebrew and Yiddish
graffitti heaping scorn on the
Belzer rebe appeared on walls and
pavements in Williamsburg.
the rebbe were distributed in the
diamond trade district'in mid-
town Manhattan where many
Hasidim are employed.
The City Administration took
the threats seriously. Security
arrangements were planned last
week at the behest of the Belzer
community leaders who met with
i Koch and Police Commissioner
Robert McGuire at Grade
Mansion. Koch reportedly issued
a stern warning to Satmar lea-
ders to control their followers.
The Mayor's office later denied
But Rabbi Leiblisch Lewko-
vitz, president of the Inter-
national Satmar community,
issued a statement saying that
"Despite our philosophical differ-
ences we believe it is everyone's
right to visit our city in a peace-
ful manner."

planking and tabric and held to-
gether by a coathanger was ig-
nited on the front lawn of the un-
finished synagogue. The blaze
was put out by congregation
members with fire extinguishers
before the fire department
urrived. I^evy reported.
THE INCIDENT created a
new sense of solidarity among the
shocked congregants who ex-
pressed their d"'ermintion "not
to run." But sharply differing
views emerged, according to
Levy, as to the motivations of the
vandals and how the Jewish
community should respond. The
basic difference was whether the
crosx-huming was an isolated in-
cident or a manifestation of a
more ominous trend.
Rabbi Donald Peterman of
Congregation Beth Shalom was
quoted as saying. "I've never
doubted that anti-Semitism was
on the rise I think we are going
to see more and more related
incidents. We live in a very
dangerous climate. Overt anti-
Semitism is becoming stronger
This burning was meant to
scare us, it was a visual message
that we are not wanted "
But Stuart Lewengrub. region-
al director of the Anti-De-
famation League of B'nai Brith.
did not see the incident as a mas-
sive movement or as a reason for
panic. "At some point in life
some Jewish institution receives
some form of harassment," he
stated. According to Levy, he
attributed the cross-burning to
troubled economic times. "Jews
have always been the scapegoat
in troubled periods." he ob-
served. He demanded, however,
that the incident be thoroughly
investigated, the culprits appre-
hended and prosecuted "like any
other common criminal."
pressed by William Gralnick.
Southeast regional director of the
American Jewish Committee.
When Jews expand into the sub-
urbs, so will prejudice, he said.
"When there is a physical Jewish
structure in a suburban neigh-
borhood, the community can't ig-
nore it like they might if there
wen one or two Jewish families
li\ ing nearby. A synagogue is
visually there, it doesn't go
away.-' Gralnick said.
One of the immediate concerns
of the Beth Shalom con#re>rant.s
was over the effects the cross-
burning had on their children.
The 20 youngsters who witnessed
it were "terror stricken," ac-
cording to one member of the
Similar concern was expressed
in Evansville. "1 don't know if
the children fully understood
what happened," Shovers said
according to Eisenberg's ac-
count. "It-, a tough issue to deal
with, but we have a great deal ol
encouragement and sympathy
from a large number of friends in
the neighborhood."
Mayor Michael Vendeveer of
Evansville reacted strongly.
"This is the kind of activity our
community doesn't want to
tolerate. Its unacceptable." he
HE ADDED, "My overall con
Cam is that when the community
hears of this type of thing and
sees swastikas painted on a
building, most people are very
much concerned There is no evi-
dence of any kind of anti-
Semitism group here. Its a spora-
dic kind of thintf and is not
reflecting an organized element in
the rommunitv."
The \tlanta incident also drew
expressions of sympathy and
outrage from community leaders
of all faiths. According to the i4f-
lanta Journal-Constitution. Dr.
Donald Newbj executive direct-
or of the Christian Council of
Metropolitan \t lanta. called on
all citizens to condemn cross
"We're deeply disturbed and
angered by the outrageous act of
cross burning at the Beth Shalom
site," he said "From a Chistian
viewpoint, we must no longer
tolerate such overt symbols of
racism, intolerance and anti-

tenure. When Cronkite insisted
that nameless others were also
responsible for his act at CBS, he
had it both ways: Denial equated
with humility; humility denied so
vicious a prospect as the
unabashed truth that the reader
of the news is the omniscient
maker of the news.
What distinguished Cronkite
from the rest is that this last
truism is in fact real in only the
fewest of Parnassan cases.
Certainly, it is not real for the
vasl cast of local TV newscaster
stars, male and female and equal
access-equal opportunity multi-
ethnic, whose appeal lies largely
in looks, computerized delivery
and as a sop to the gods of phony
human rights consideration.
Cronkite, as a respectable
WASP unatrammeled by the
need to look pretty, is above this
juvenilia. Precisely the proper
age, wrinkled to elicit trust-
worthiness but not yet faltering
to arouse fears of impotence, he is
above the suspicion of their
sweaty, sophomoric, often
amateur enterprise. He is

ombudsman in our behalf to deal
with all the major crises in
American life today that he
embellished as he read them on

McLUHAN'S "the medium is
the message" comes to mind, and
I need perhaps to modify that.
Cronkite, during his tenure, has
not just been a reader of the
news; he has, like everyone else
in this nasty business who tries
to be in reality, been the news. In
this sense, he is no more precious,
no less dangerous than his peers,
mentionable or unmentionable.
One has only, for example, to
recall how Cronkite attempted to
manipulate the course of history
at the Republican National
Convention last summer: his
excessive meddling in the GOP
vice presidential bid to former
President Ford.
This was not a case of
reporting events so much as it
was of arranging events, and
reams have already been written
to suggest that Ford's final
refusal was the result of
Cronkite's excessive camera zeal.
Ditto for the Cronkite role in a
("BS production with Anwar
Sadat in Cairo in 1978 immediat

Jerusalem that led to instant
Israeli demands for clarification

was the fabled Edward R.

sprang as a fullblown journalistic

in the London blitz, and which
Murrow later adapted to the then

IN A NATION aching for a
father figure, no wonder there
was nary a ripple at his depar-
ture. Sevarekfs way was a far
cry from Cronkite's, the father
suddenly emoting at the signal of
lights, camera, action.
The difference between these
men spells the difference in the
American temperament. Had my
irate reader told me that an Eric

felt far more chastened.

But Murrow didn't create the
news as his followers have since
come to do. Even on radio, he let
the ambiance of events energize
his reporting that was the
genius of his discovery. But in its
aftermath came the tragic con-
sequences, for example, of
"watching" the war for 15
minutes or so of a six o'clock
news segment over a drink before
dinner as the nation's Vietnam

If this was something Murrow
could not foresee, he could not

The Countil of Jewish Federations annual

revealed that 1979.was a year of dramatic
iwth, bringing Federation endowment holdings
fa year-end total of S395.7 million. This total is

I Normal A. Sugarman of Washington, outgoing
(lairman of the CJF Endowment Development
ommitlee, estimated that Federation en-
wmenl funds amounted to approximately $500
llion at the end of 1980.
The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith
as asked a federal appeals court to overturn a
ouisiana law permitting prayer in public schools
the ground that it violates the First Amend-
ent's guarantee of church-state separation.
In an amicus curate (friend-of-the-court) brief,
U)L called on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
fifth Circuit, to reverse a lower court decision
holding the Louisiana statute that was passed in
fuly, 1980.
Under that statute, Jefferson Parish (county)
stituted a one-minute prayer perriod at the start
each school day, under which students can
Volunteer to recite prayers. According to the
Statute, if none volunteer, the teacher can offer
\he prayer.
The parents of three Jefferson Parish students
challenged the statute, but their lawsuit was
dismissed by Federal District Court Judge
|Adrian G. Duplantier, who said he had "prayed
over" the case.
Hebrew is taught in one public school in
[Cincinnati, and 18 of the 20 pupils in the class are
black. Teacher Winston Pickett sees the class at
argely black Woodward High School as a bridge
Ibetween blacks and Jews. That's why he began
[teaching it two years ago.
"In 1979, I felt the polarization from the Andy
Young affair," explained Pickett, a doctoral
| student at Hebrew Union College here.
Young resigned as U.S. ambassador to the
Jnited Nations after an unauthorized meeting
with a representative of the Palestine Liberation
I Organization. His resignation infuriated black
leaders who thought Young had become a
I scapegoat in a government policy change
[regarding Israel. Some Jews were angered by
Iwhat they thought was the government's
loetrayal of Israel. The incident prompted Pickett
|to take over the class in Hebrew.
The Long Island Chapter of the American
Jewish Committee has welcomed the initiative of
Adelphi University and its president, Timothy
Costello, in forming an Island-wide speakers
bureau of spearhead community action against
the religious and racial vandalism that has oc-
gredonLong Island during the past 18 months.
Joining with Adelphi in the project, which is
recruiting businessmen and professionals "who
have earned recognition for their concern with
human relations and human rights on Long
Island" to address local business and service
organizations, are the American Jewish Com-
mittee, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, and the National Conference of Christians
and Jews.
There are three problems facing the Labor
movement, according to the daily Ha'aretz. First,
it has not convinced the people that Shimon
Peres' leadership will be superior to Menachem
Begin's. Second, Labor's vocal demand for an
absolute majority could become sticky. Memories
of past Labor governments, even without ab-
solute majority, are not heartwarming. Many
people will hesitate to deliver the keys to the state
to the Labor Alignment, exclusively. The third
problem ecomonic woes was the major cause
of Likud's downfall.
Not a peep was heard from Labor on cutting
the defense budget or satisfying the teacher's
demands for more money leaving their views on
the economy a mystery. But rumor has it that the
Labor Alignment will start its term with tough
economic decrease. According to Ha'aretz, it will
not be difficult for the Likud to create the impres-
sion that Labor's ascent to power will place limits
on the good life of the individual.
