EVERY DAY of his life, the pious Jew states:
; believe with perfect faith that the prophecy of
oses, our teacher (peace be unto him) was true
nd that he was the chief of the prophets, both of
hose that preceded and of those that followed
." This is the seventh of the Thirteen Prin-
iples of Faith, formulated by Maimonides.
Each year, at Passover, we teach our children
he story of the Exodus from Egypt, explaining
iow Moses, our great leader, pleaded with
3haraoh and, with God's help, led the children of
Israel from slavery to freedom.
But who was this great prophet and leader?
Moses was a mere man, from the most humble of
eginnings. The first mention of his parentage in
Biblesimply states that a man from the house
of Levi took a woman from the house of Levi.
LATER WE learn that his father was Amram,
randson of Levi, who married his aunt,
rocheved, Levi's daughter. When we read the list
f prohibited marriages laid down in Leviticus
3:12, this renders Moses an illegitimate child,
that of a forbidden union.
It is an unpleasant revelation, but it helps
validate those who believe in the Divine origin of
the Torah because if Moses or any other human
written it, this fact would surely have
|m: mined hidden.
Most people know the story of Moses'
childhood. He was born in Egypt at a time when
the cruel Pharaoh ruled that all newborn male
Hebrew children must be slain. Left adrit on the
waters of the Nile, he was found by Pharaoh's
daughter who took him to the palace, raising him
as her son. Grown up, he defended the Hebrew
slaves, and killed an Egyptian task-master who
was abusing a Jew an act which forced him to
flee to Midian.
BUT WHY would he have such feeling for his
people if he had been reared as an Egyptian from
infancy? First, his natural mother was his nurse
until he was quite a lad, giving her the chance to
instil in him the belief in one God. We assume she
also told him the sacred traditions of Israel and
the Divine promise to deliver the Jews from
Egyptian bondage.
In addition, as the adopted son of a princess, he
must have had the best education available,
probably at Heliopolis, which helped him become
a leader of men. We can only assume that when
the priests wanted to initiate him into their
idolatry, he remembered his mother's teachings
and resisted.
The memory of these same moral laws must
have caused him to kill the Egyptian that flogged
a Hebrew slave. Moses was filled with com pa s-

The amount of food being
donated to the Jewish Commu-
nity Food Bank is not keeping up
with the demand. When the
program started almost two
years ago, everyone was very
enthusiastic about it and
promised to make certain that
there would be plenty of food to
give to our people who are less
fortunate than we are. At this
time there are over 125 indi-
viduals receiving food each week.
In order for us to continue to
meet this need in our community
it is important that those people
who feel the responsibility to feed
the poor and hungry remember
their promise. There are places to
donate food at all synagogues.

money to the Food Bank may do

Community Long-Range Planning
FRONTLINE TIMNA REPORT On location recently in Timna
Valley Park, the Arava, for a JNF-Kastel Films co-production,
"Family of the Earth," were Jewish National Fund President
Charlotte Jacobson and Dr. Samuel I. Cohen, JNF Executive Vice
President (far right/. They were briefed during the filming by Dubi
Hellman, coordinator of Timna development (next to Dr. Cohen), and
David Nachmias, in charge of JNF activity in southern Israel (directly
behind Mrs. Jacobson). The development of Timna Valley as a major
tourist attraction is a top priority of JNF"s National Leadership
Council The chairman of the NLC Timna Development Committee is
Avrum Chudnow of Milwaukee.
Under the chairmanship and
direction of Jeremy Gluckman,
the Tampa Jewish Federation
has developed a long range
planning program that has as its
goals (1) "To be responsive to the
diverse needs and wants of the
broadest spectrum of the Tampa
Jewish Community and (2) to
pmvide guidance for the imple-
i illation of capital improve-
i i in programs, budget alloca-
lions, service programs and other
i rrcis."
According to Gluckman, "Of
I ni' nr\ importance to the
nil ir ale success of this process is
felling worthwhile input from
lie community. The goal of the
planning committee is, therefore,
to reach as many people as pos-
sible for their input in helping to
determine the 'goals' for the
Tampa Jewish Community."
Because of the large number of
organizations, religious, service,
charitable, social and fraternal,
I hat provide services to the
Tampa community, the planning
commit lee has met and will
continue to meet with as many
groups as possible. The com-
mit lee also plans to host one or
two "open community forums"
t hat will be open to members of
I he Tampa Jewish community.
"We have no idea how many
of fessover
*m*QQicri*MK>oomxuamco *>*.*> ion
individuals will respond to this
'open forum' format, but we do
want to hear from every possible
segment of the community. All
we can do is encourage people to
participate and hope they will
share their concerns so that we
receive the widest possible ex-
pression of viewpoint," Gluck-
man stated.
Upon completion of all goal-
generating meetings, the Long
Range Planning Subcommittee
will meet to organize the goals
drawn from these meetings. The
committee will present a prior-
il ized list of the top 10 to 20 goals
and present proposals for imple-
mentation to the appropriate
Federation committees. While
some of the goals may be able to
be dealt with on a short range
basis, the major emphasis will be
on a "Long Range Development
Plan for the Greater Tampa
Jewish Community 1984
throught 1989."

Foundation's International
Conference in Israel.
Constitutional Law
Initially we should look at
Israel's system of legal justice
from a constitutional standpoint.
The state adopted no written
constitution, but has developed a
basic theory of human rights
which is administered by its
Supreme Court. No doubt this
adoption of the basic theory of
human rights is s logical out-
growth and necessity in view of
the "Eichmann trial" conducted
in the State of Israel based on a
theory of fundamental human
Only the Israeli Supreme Court
may over-rule acts of Parliament
as violstive of basic human rights
or acts of the government; (sue*
as military administrators in
what are termed by the Israeli
judges administered territories).
The District Court which is the
general trial Court, may not do so
except by precedent from the
Israeli Supreme Court. There is
some variance between the Israeli
unwriteen Constitution and the
English unwritten Constitution
in that the English unwritten
Constitution is based on its
history while the Israeli Con-
stitution is based on the general
philosophic notions and notions
of basic human rights as estab-
lished in law courts and philo-
sophers throughout the world.
Retired Justice Chaim Cohen
of the Israeli Supreme Court set
up the original Israeli legal
system in 1948 as Premier Ben
Gurion's Attorney General. In
this enterprise he had the oc-
casion to visit Justices Hugo
Blade and Felix Frankfurter who
gave htm. as usual, contrary
advice. Justice Black suggsistiiri a

possible and Justice Frankfurter

Constitution. In any event,
probably by reason of the then
Premier Ben G urion 's theory that
although there were only 600,000
Jews in Israel in 1948, soon there
would be many millions, and
Israel should not have a Consti-
tution until those millions came.
Thus the first settlers would not
dictate to the later ones. Justice
Cohen was of the opinion that a
Constitution should be enshrined
in the hearts of the citizens and
not on potentially meaningless
piece of paper which could be
At the present time there is
under consideration in the
Knesset (Parliament!, a written
Constitution. The draft includes
such language as "the right of
freedom of speech may not be
abridged except as provided by
law," which language Justice
Cohen utilized to verify his
original impression that an
unwritten Constitution was
probably safer.
Five hundred thousand suits s
year are filed in Israel. Litigants
are reluctant to settle and eager
to sue. There are about 250 state
appointed judges.
The Courts are operated in a
three tier operation. The lowest is
the Magistrates Court. The
Magistrate's Court hears 250,000
traffic and a substantial number
of misdemeanor and civil suits of
s lower amount than the District
Court. (Those of you who hsve
driven there may understand the
need for such s high level of
traffic enforcement).
Because of inflation in Israel, I
cannot give precise Shekel limit
as between the drafting of the
article and the reading thereof,
limits would hsve changed. The
government indexes for inflation
the limits for civil suits
District Judges are general
trial court judges handling
serious criminal and civil matters
and appeals from Magistrate
Courts. Testimony st District
Court is often not taken down
verbatim. Judges will make sum
maries of the facts which they
find to exist and those summaries
will be the matters taken up on
appeal to the Supreme Court.
Judges work from 8 to 2 with
joint lunches with their fellow
jurists ss in "Old Bailey and
"Queens Bench" but with consi-
derably less eclat; then from 2 to
8 they work on opinions.
The Supreme Court is sup-
posed to be comprised of 12
members: it hsndles appeals by
leave from the Magistrate's
Court and from the religious
courts and by right from the
District Court as well ss having
origins! jurisdiction by wsy of
Quo Wsrronto Mandamus in
suits against the government.
The appeals are roughly broken
down into three categories: 900
appeals by leave from the
Magistrate's Court: 900 appeals
by right from the District
Courts: and. 900 original
proceedings against the govern-
ment per year for which trials are
provided in the Supreme Court.

Number 16
Each Supreme Court Judge
has assigned to him or her two
Law Clerks who are recent
graduates of the Law School at
Tel Aviv University. The
Supreme Court Judges, with
whom we discussed these
matters, indicated that they pre-
ferred having two Clerks because
one Clerk might be dominated by
a Judge whereas two Clerks
generally would argue with the
Judge to force the Judge to
justify a decision sometimes
reached in advance of deter-
mining the state of law.
All judges in Israel are
required, during the time that
they are serving, to wear a black
suit, white shirt, black tie for men
and bows for women and black
shoes. During the time that they
are sitting on the Bench they also
wear a black robe. In short, when
you meet a judge in chambers, as
the author has on many oc-
casions, you do not see the usual
sport jacket we see in the United
States or the old school tie you
might see in England.
At the present time all justices
serving on the Israeli Supreme
Court were trained in Israel with
post-graduate training in many
cases elsewhere, whereas the
prior group of Israeli justices of
the Supreme Court primarily
received their training at Oxford.
Cambridge. University of
Chicago, and. on the Continent.
There is no wig used by the
Israelis, either judges or lawyers,
although lawyers also are
required to wear black gowns in
court proceedings. There is no
separate dock as in the English
Common Law and no jury trials
whatever, either in a civil or
criminal nature.
In England the civil jury trial
has been done away with except
in the cases of libel and slander
and also done away with in cases
carrying six months or under
punishment in jail. In Israel there
are no jury trials at all. The
British never introduced the jury
system into the mandated terri-
tory of Palestine, because of the
impression, undoubtedly well
founded, that in that particular
area of the world, it would be
unreasonable to assume that
individuals of one particular sect
would find against members of
their own sect or group in a court
trial involving individuals of
another sect
Physical Plant of the Co.rta
None of the physical plants of
the Courts was particularly
impressive as they are occa-
sionally in the United States and
the State of Michigan and are
almost invariably in England.
For example, the Supreme Court
sits in a building which used to be
a Russian Orthodox Monastery
used by the British during their
mandate as the central court for
the administration of Palestine.
This building is in the so-called
Russian compound in Jerusalem.
The exterior of the building is
pock marked with bullet holes
inflicted both during the time of
the occupation of the British and
the war of 1948. This Court is
extraordinarily ill suited for the
purpose for which it is put,
having a far less impressive
appearance even as far as its
chambers than most inferior
courts in this country. However,
judges of the Israeli Supreme
Court receive double the pay as
those of Cabinet Ministers.
The Law
The law of Israel is not based
upon Jewish law, although a
majority of the members of the
original state were Jewish and
the State was established to be a
Jewish national homeland. At the
initiation of the state, orthodox
Jewish groups were offended that
any civil authority could under-
take to enforce and interpret
Divine Law. Accordingly, they
vehemently objected, at the time
of the incorpor
to such law being administered
by civil authority and as a conse-
quence the sources of Israeli law
are diverse indeed.
Israeli law is the English
common law for criminal cases.
The Continental law for civil
cases, and Religious Law of each
religious community for domestic
cases. There is not such thing as
civil marriage in the State of
Israel and if marriages take place
outside of the religious commu-
nity, it also takes place outside of
the State of Israel, (i.e. the people
take a flight to Cyprus).
The Religious Courts are con-
stituted by individuals who are
not necessarily lawyers. Rabbis
in Israel select the judges for the
Jewish courts, the Moslem select
their own Khadis, and each
Christian sect selects its own
judges. Many cases are decided
by the Religious Courts that
might have also been decided by
civil courts, such as civil suits
between members of the same
relgious community, where both
parties agree to be bound by the
decision of the Religious Court
rather than a Civil Court. Review
of this system is by leave to the
Supreme Court which merely
determines whether the Religious
Court acted in accordance with
its own regulation.
Selection Proceas lor Judges
It invariably occurs that an
appointment of a Justice to the
Israeli Supreme Court is by
unanimous vote and ss s result
the Israeli Supreme Court. When
the author visited, it was three
Justices shy. there having been a
complete turnover of the Justices
within the past five years.
The appointing committee is
made up of two Supreme Court
judges, one District Court judge,
two members elected by the Bar
Association, and four public offi-
cials (generally including the
Attorney General and Minister of
Justice). AU of the members of
the committees are lawyers,
although civil officials are not
required to be lawyers
No judge will be appointed
without the approval of at least
the majority, and the approval of
the two designated members of
the Israeli Supreme Court who.
therefore, have veto power over
the lower courts. The usual
standard is 10 years of private
practice or acting as a professor
prior to being named as a judge
in any of the courts. The appoint-
ment is for life and the indi-
vidual's terms do not come up for
The Educational Proceu
The primary law school in
Israel is at Tel Aviv University
which is a four year school.
Admission to which is generally
obtained only after two years
service in the military. Once the
individuals graduate from Tel
Aviv University, they are
required to put in two years, one
as an Article Clerk and one of
which must be spent as a trial
attorney under the supervision of
other Counsel. No attorney can
be admitted to practice before
any of the religious courts unless
they are a member of that
religious sect.

It's my understanding that
there are 10,000 attorneys in
Israel of which 3.000 are in
governmental practice.
Derision Making Processes
We found that some judges,
such as Judge Steinberg of the
Tel Aviv District Court, took a
great deal of pleasure in writing
extensive opinions, laboring over
them as literary efforts in at-
tempting to make sure that he

Overall Impressions
One of the most lasting im-
pressions received by the author
concerning the courts' operation
wss sn insight furnished at the
final dinner st the King David
Hotel with Judge Sternberg; who
said that he once hsd the need to
chastise an attorney who was
being particularly obnoxious by
mentioning that "It is 9:30 in the
morning and I am already tired."
The offending attorney subse-
quently never msde a further
appearance on Judge Stemberg's
Court. I cannot imagine circum-
stances where such a gentle
reproof could have brought such
a drastic reaction on the part of
the counsel.
The author can only scratch
the surface of that which was
seen. The most enduring
memories were not my court
experiences, but simple things,
such as the look of the people on
the streets, sttendsnee st the

Ail Anniversary Tribute
The story of Youth Aliyah
echoes one of the most dramatic
periods in Jewish history. Every
upheaval in the Diaspora, every
wave of immigration to Israel has
been addressed by Youth Aliyah
... one child at a time.
During its 50-year history,
Youth Aliyah has developed and
expanded its programs and
facilities with funds received
from the United Jewish Appeal
through the Jewish Agency.
Today, over 90 percent of Youth
Aliyah's $52 million budget
comes from UJA-community
campaigns and from similar
campaigns conducted by Keren
Hayesod worldwide.
Israel's Youth Aliyah is 50
years old. It hardly seems
possible. The face of Youth
Aliyah is such a young face .
elusive, glimpsed through a train
window; vulnerable, on the deck
of an "illegal" steamer; eager, on
the dock at Haifa; hard-eyed and
suspicious after years of wan-
dering; flushed with effort from
plowing and hoeing; bright with
the laughter shared with a friend.
It's a face with history written
across its features.
In fact, Youth Aliyah at 50 is

its schools and residences .

twenty Israeli adults has been
liucled by the program.
Youth Aliyah was born in
prewar Berlin in the imagination
of ardent Zionist Recha Freier
and midwifed in Jerusalem by
Henrietta Szold. founder of
lladassah. What these two
women created was a daring
wartime rescue movement that

The teaching methods and

Henrietta Szold in those early
years are the basis of Youth
Aliya's success 50 years later:
small, self-governing peer
groups, live-in counselors, and an
enduring commitment to
academic and practical training.
For many children, the youth
groups replaced lost homes and
families and provided the love,
security and discipline required
for healthy growth.
As soon as the concept of a
residential training program for
children was established, it was
tested to its limits. Youngsters
came from slave labor camps via
the leaking vessels of the
"illegal" immigration, from the
displaced persons camps of
Europe and from the internment
camps of Cyprus. There were
escapees from Nazi-fomented
anti-Jewish riots in Yemen and
Iraq, followed, in 1948 through
1950, by the children of a mass
immigration from all of the
Moslem lands.
Sustained after World War II
by the steady partnership of
Israel and Diaspora Jewry as a
major program of the Jewish
Agency, Youth Aliyah became
the home of last resort for any
Jewish child in trouble. That
meant building facilities, the
appropriate placement of
thousands of children, the
gathering of professional training
of hundreds of teachers and
counselors. In addition, it meant
intensive psychological and
sociological research to un-
derstand the burdens and
traumas that the chHdren
brought with them.
As the demographic composi-
tion of the student body shifted,
teachers, counselors and Jewish
Agency administrators struggled
to adapt the program to new
kinds of children, new needs and
With the influx in 1948-1950of
more than 6,000youngsters from
North Africa, for example, Youth
Aliyah had to change both its
methodology and goals. Parents
still in reception centers and
ma'abarot (temporary settle-
ment s) entrusted their children to
Youth Aliyah for the head start
t hey could not hope to give them
otherwise. Youth Aliyah was no
longer replacing a nonexistent
family unit, but had the delicate
responsibility of maintaining a
link between parents who
retained their old culture and
children who were becoming
acclimated to Israel's democratic
and technological society.

doesn't look its age. Its image is
always the face of its newest
student; its reality, an evolving,
dynamic program. Whatever

children, whatever winds and
currents sweep across the
Diaspora, Youth Aliyah at 50 is
ready to be a secure home, an
avenue of self-fulfillment, an
enriched environment for lear-
ning and growth.

passovep plate f mst decoRated
In Renaissance
THE EARLIEST reference to the ornamental
plate that decorates the Passover Seder table is to
be found in the Mishna Pesachin. There it is
called in Hebrew, Ke'arah, and the various
symbolic foods relating to Passover which are to
be placed upon it are also mentioned.
While the Haggadah was illustrated by
illumination in the Middle Ages, decorations for
the Passover Plate are not known until the early
Renaissance period. Interestingly enough, in the
Haggadah illuminations, the Ashkenazi version
ofthe Passover plate is depicted as round and the
Sephardic and Italian versions as a woven basket.
VARIOUS MATERIALS have been used for
the Passover late including porcelain, stoneware,
pewter, wood, silver and in more recent times
plastic. The plates contain a variety of pictures
relating to the exodus from Egypt, the Seder meal
itself and the four sons. These illustrations added
an additional dimension to the educational value
of the Seder table, and the artist's work made the
setting even more festive.
Ceramic plates for Passover are known from
the 1500's. They were made initially in Spain and
later in Italy. The Delft Seder dish from the
1600s is considered a classic in its own right. A
20th Century English bone china Seder plate with
individual dishes for each of the Passover Seder
symbols is no less outstanding.
Even the Jewish community in 19th Century
Palestine left us a poignant reminder of its joyful
celebration of Passover a glazed ceramic Seder
plate which can be found today in the Wolfson
Museum in Jerusalem. The aspects of the Pass-
over story are depicted, but most important is the
word Yerushaiayim (Jerusalem) on the face of the
plate. This plate was a dramatic reminder for all
those who used it of the concluding words in the
Seder: "Next Year in Jerusalem."
In an old age home, when all those at the
Passover Seder table are grandparents and
great-grandparents, it is sometimes hard to
determine who is to sit at the head of the
table. The American Jewish Joint Distribu-
tion Committee (JDC), overseas relief arm of
the American Jewish community, brings
Passover into the homes of needy Jews
around the world.

Spanish Chief Expresses
Approval of Jewish Lobby
Minister Felipe Gonzalez Marquez of
Spain indicated here that his govern-
ment is very much interested in
establishing diplomatic relations with
Israel. He also expressed admiration for
"the Jewish lobby in Europe, in the
United States and in Latin America" for
their tenacious support of Israel.
GONZALEZ TOLD reporters here
that nine out of ten questions asked him
when he meets with Jewish leaders
concern Spain's possible recognition of
Israel. Spain is the only Western
European country that does not have
diplomatic ties with Jerusalem.
Nevertheless, the Spanish leader made
it clear that Spain will look to its own
national interests before taking a decison
on that issue. "We also want the
establishment of diplomatic relations
with Israel to contribute somehow to a
peaceful solution in the Middle East,
Songs and Satire, Wisdom and
Wit Combine in USF's Univ. Theatre
including a positive answer to the
Palestinian problem," he said.
Gonzalez, ending a two-day official
visit to Belgium, expressed the hope that
"the friendship and the excellent
relations" between Spain and the Arab
states "will not be damaged when Spain
decides to recognize Israel and establish
diplomatic relations with it."
HE SAID SPAIN wanted to do this.
"The Spanish goverment itself
suggested this possibility. I would say
there is a necessity to put to an end an
anomaly because our foreign policy is
aimed at the universalization of our
foreign relations."
Gonzalez indicated no date when
Spain would recognize Israel. He said
that on his recent visit to Riyadh, the
Saudi Arabian government applied no
pressure not to recognize Israel.

Zionist 'Brains-Corps' To Confront
Problems Revealed by Dulzin
Computer Drawing Opens April 15
The establishment of a
"brains-corpsfor Zionism"
to "thoroughly think
through and analyze the
Zionist movement and
structure within the context
of world Jewry today and in
the predictable future and
the problems, challenges
and changes it will con-
front" was announced here
by Leon Dulzin, chairman
of the Jewish Agency and
World Zionist Organization
The Zionist "brains-corps" or
think-tank will be composed of
foremost university academic
and Zionist elder statesmen and
leaders who will give counsel to
the Jewish Agency and the WZO
"in determining the program and
action priorities and future direc-
tion of the Zionist movement,"
Dulzin said at the conclusion of a
three-day Zionist leadership con-
ference. Dulzin was chairman of
the think-tank session which took
place in Herzlia.
The think-tank will include one
representative of each of the 14
world unions and international
organizations that comprise the
WZO and a group of noted uni-
versity professors. The
academics were identified as Dr.
S. Z. Abramov. Daniel Elazar,
Shlomo Ekstein, Haim Ben
Shachar, Yoseph Gorni, Moshe
David, Yosef Nedava and Anita
recommendations based on the
three-day conference were
presented and discussed at a
special session of the World
Zionist General Council in Jeru-
salem this week. The special
session was devoted exclusively
to reorganization.
"This is the beginning of a se-
rious and determined process to
analyze and think through our
problems with the benefit of some
of our ablest minds," Dulzin
stressed. "There will be no at-
tempt to reach conclusions and
make decisions at this World
Zionist General Council. Rather,
we will begin a process of pro-
found deliberation and discussion
within the individual national
Zionist federations throughout
the world. Our ideas will benefit
tremendously from the fact that
they will be sparked by the think-
tank which will follow our delib-
erations. It is our hope to reach
conclusions and to make recom-
mendations within a year's
Dulzin reported that the
1 800 432 3706
present structure of the Zionist
movement, which gives exclusive
controlling power to the political
parties, has been rendered obso-
lete by the realities and needs of
today's world. Noting that the
think-tank members are
unanimous about this, Dulzin
"They are as one in declaring
that changing conditions demand
essential changes in the Zionist
structure to permit a broader
foundation to be laid as a base
for building a democratic and
ideological Zionist movement
that will encompass the entire
spectrum of Zionist thought. The
new structure should give em-
phasis to educational and ideo-
logical causes instead of politics
and parties."
DULZIN SAID the think tank
members alluded to the analogy
of the Caesarea Process in which
the Jewish Agency leadership ac-
cepted the Jerusalem Program.
"They see the acceptance of the
Jerusalem Program as the lowest
common denominator for some-
one to be acknowledged as a
Zionist," he said. "As a maxi-
malist Zionist criterion they
contemplate affiliation with a
'Movement for Zionist Fulfill-
ment' through aliya at the apex
of a broad-based Zionist move-
ment." Noting that this innova-
tive deliberative process is just
beginning, Dulzin expressed the
hope that far-reaching, beneficial
changes could be effected, "if
possible by consensus not by a
broad majority. For, on a crucial
topic such as this, more than a
simple majority is needed for the
decision to be meaningful and to
carry weight. We Zionists are
faced with the critical issue and
fundamental fact that our move-
ment has been accepted by the
majority of the organized world
Jewish community.
It is "obvious that only if the
WZO makes the necessary
changes in its structure will it be
able to be the central force in
Jewish life it must be in behalf of
positive Jewish life, survival and
the upbuilding of the Jewish
homeland," Dulzin declared.

Improper to Judge Jewish Rescue
Efforts, Dr. Riegner Declares
Dr. Gerhart Riegner, who
in 1942 as representative of
the World Jewish Congress
in Geneva first informed
the Western world of the
Nazi plan for the genocide
of the Jewish people,
indicated that he felt it im-
proper to cast judgement
today on what should have
or could have been done to
help rescue European Jew-
ry during World War II.
"Certainly we could have*
rescued more, but don't have any
illusions that we could have
rescued millions," Riegner told a
group of American representa-
tives of the World Jewish Con-
gress at the Minskoff Center
here. He said the international
political situation was different
and the American Jewish com-
munity's influence was limited
compared to what it is today.
OBSERVERS interpreted
Riegner's remarks, which
included a reference to Stephen
Wise, the former president of the
American Jewish Congress, as
having been a direct reference to
the ongoing investigation under
the chairmanship of former U.S.
Supreme Court Justice Arthur
Goldberg into what the Jewish
community did or did not do in
its efforts to save European Jew-
ry. An interim report issued by
the Goldberg group has specific-
ally cited Wise's wartime efforts.
The gathering Nov. 9 was in
commemoration of the 45th anni-
versary of Kristallnacht (Night of
Shattered Glass), when Nazi anti-
Jewish attacks on the night of
November 910. 1938. decimated
Jewish-owned property and syn-
agogues throughout Germany.
The event is considered a turning
point in the treatment of German
and Austrian Jewry marking an
end to independent organized
Jewish life, with the dissolution
of cultural and communal bodies
and the banning of the Jewish
While no complete tally of the
destruction exists, reports said at
least 30.000 Jews were arrested in
Germany, some 8.000 in Austria,
and were sent to concentration
camps in Dachau. Buchenwald
and Sachsenhausen.
Reports said 815 Jewish-owned
shops were destroyed, and 29
warehouses and 171 dwellings set
on fire or otherwise destroyed;
191 synagogues were set on fire
and a further 76 completely
demolished. Thirty-six Jews were
killed and 36 severely injured in
the anti-Jewish attacks.
RABBI Arthur Schneier, spir-
itual leader of the Park East Syn-
agogue and who participated in
today's discussion, was in Vienna
45 years ago and said he was a
boy on his way to school on No-
vember 9. 1938. "It was a day
and night oi horror. I can still
hear the shatter of glass, see the
burning of the synagogues and
see hundreds and hundreds of
Jewish men lined up waiting for
shipping to Dachau and Buchen-
It was Riegner who in 1942
transmitted a telegram directed
to the U.S. State Department
and British Foreign Office that
contained the first authentic
news about Hitlers decision to
exterminate the Jews.
The name of the informant who
passed the information to
Riegner has remained a mystery
until just several months, ago
when historians verified the
informant as German industrial-
ist Edward Schulte. But Riegner,
who is the last person alive to
know the identity of the
inf^kant. will not verify
whether it was Schulte, saying he
gave his word not to reveal the
informant's identity.
ACCORDING TO Riegner, the
Jews outside Germany could not
comprehend what was taking
place although he said it was
clear in three separate instances
that what was occurring would be
fatal to the Jews. This included a
1933 Nazi ouster of Jews from
professional positions, the 1935
Nuremburg laws, and the 1938
night of shattered glass. He said
despite the warnings, "nothing
Riegner said he was not seek-
ing to "exonerate" anyone for
what they did or failed to do but
pointed out that it is essential to
put actions by individuals in his-
torical context. This, he said,
included an assessment of the
actions of President Franklin
Roosevelt, who at that time was
confronted with challenges from
isolationists and the strictures
imposed by U.S. public opinion.
Meanwhile Neal Sher, who is
the acting director of the Office of
Special Investigations, the Jus-
tice Department's office
responsible with investigating
and prosecuting war criminals
living in the United States, said
today that Israel is ready to seek
the extradition of war criminals
from the U.S. He said he could
not go into details of who those
persons are or when formal action
may begin.

'eminist Confab
Jewish Women Study Primary Goals
Friday, April 13,1984 / The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 11
'A Shtetl Passover'
laUenges facing Amer-
in Jewish women in their
lng standing effort to
thieve equality in all areas
Jewish life and ways to
[tain this objective was
lie basis of a recent two-
ay Jewish feminist confer-
ice here. The 250 women
fho met in Congregation
Insche Chesed also exam-
led achievements gained
iring the past decade.
I One of the primary goals Jew-
|h feminists set a little more
an 10 yearj ago was met last
gk when the Faculty Senate of
Jewish Theological Seminary
America voted 34-8 to admit
jnmen to the Seminary's rab-
iniral school for ordination as
Dnservative rabbis.
1THE VOTE culminated a
hade-long struggle that was
[arked by the members of Ezrat
ishim, the first Jewish feminist
tganization, founded in 1971, to
invince the Conservative move-
Mil that women are equally
Ipalile of intense study of the
[wish religion, are equally
Ivoted to keeping traditional
Iwish precepts and practices,
yi should be considered bound
fulfill all the religious obliga-
(ins (mitzvot) of men.
[On March 14, 1972, the 14
I'mbers of Ezrat Nashim at-
ided a plenary session of the
kbbinical Assembly, where they
Led a "Call for Change," re-
questing that women be granted:
synagogue membership; inclu-
sion in the minyan; full part-
icipation in religious observ-
ances; recognition as witnesses in
a Jewish court of law; the right to
initiate divorce proceedings; per-
mission and encouragement to
attend rabbinical and cantorial
school, and to perform these
functions in the synagogue; en-
couragement to join decision-
making bodies and assume pro-
fessional leadership roles, both in
the synagogue and the secular
Jewish community; and to be
considered obligated to maintain
the mitzvot.
Arlene Agus, a founding mem-
ber of Ezrat Nashim, and
currently the director of external
affairs and planning at the
Cardozo School of Law at Yesh-
iva University, reminded the
conference at Ansche Chesed that
10 years ago, at the first Jewish
feminist conference, "We had
three rabbis speaking, all of them
men. Today we have five rabbis
speaking, all of them women."
THERE ARE now more than
60 women rabbis, ordained
through the Reform and Re-
constructionist branches of Ju-
daism; at the time of the confer-
ence 10 years ago, there was only
one, Sally Preisand.
Agus, who was the moderator
of the recent conference titled
"Jewish Women's Conference:
Challenge and Change," a project
of the National Council of Jewish
Women-New York Section and
sponsored by the Jewish
Women's Resource Center, said

Paula Hyman, another found-
ing member of Ezrat Nashim and
now dean of the Seminary College
of Jewish Studies at the Jewish
Theological Seminary of Amer-
ica, referred to the conference as
"our bas mitzvah year." A lead-
ing feminist and coauthor of
"Jewish Wnmifl in America,"
Hyman pointed out that the Jew-
ish feminist movement had ac-
crued great strength since its in-
She called Jewish feminism an
"eloquent voice" which has
defined and presented the "needs
and claims of women." Stressing
that women's claim to equality is
"profoundly moral," Hyman out-
lined a two-fold agenda for
change: "equal access" and
"equal valuing" of women.
SHE DEFINED "equal ac
cess" as the opening up to women
of "major aspects of Jewish
experience formerly denied to
us," including the assumption of
Jewish religious study and the
taking on of leadership roles
within both the religious and
communal realms of Jewish life.
This "equal access," according to
Hyman, is the easiest part of the
agenda to accomplish.
The "equal valuing" of women,
she said, meant taking seriously
their experiences and their point
of view. She underlined that
valuing women's experience
within Judaism would be of
benefit to the whole Jewish com-
munity, men and women alike.
Hyman stressed that women
have their own spiritual re-
sources, creative wellsprings, and
a "specifically feminine way of
reading Torah, which must be
liberated and legitimated."
"A Shtetl Passover" will air on
WXFL. Channel 8, on Sunday,
April 22, from 7:30-8 a.m. "A
Shtetl Passover" will feature
Professor David Roskies, co-
author of The Shtetel Book and
an authority on the history and
way of life of Jews in Eastern
Europe prior to the Holocaust. It
will contain film clips and photos
never before seen on television, as
well as dramatizations and songs
of the period.

Wishing All My Landsmen a Happy A Joyous Passover
Roslyn, Bob, Jamie, and Glenn
On the evening of April 16, the first seder night of the festival of Passover, we hope you
will include as a part of your Passover ceremonial a reading of the "Matzoh of Hope"
which recalls the fate of the Soviet Jewish Prisoners of Conscience.
rhe lender of the service takes up the mu.zah
aH its aside, and says:
This Matzah, which we set aside as symbol
of hope for Ihe Jews of the Soviet Union,
reminds us nf the indestructible links that exist
between us.
As we observe this festival of freedom.
we know that Soviet Jews are not free to leave
without harassment; to learn of their past; to
pass on their religious traditions; to learn the
languages of their fathers; to train the teachers
and the rabbis of future generations
We remember with bitterness the scores of
Jewish prisoners of conscience who sought to
live as Jews and struggled to leave for Isracl-
the land of our fathers-but now languish in
bondage in Soviet labor camps. Their struggle
against their oppressors is part of an ongoing
effort, and they shall know that they have
not been forgotten.
As Soviet Jews assert themselves they arc
joined by all who are aroused by their affliction.
We will continue until they emerge into
the light of freedom.

No Corrections of Law Defects Since '82
,)eputy Attorney General
tfehudit Karp has complained to
Justice Minister Moehe Niasim
|hat no measures have been
Lkcn to correct serious defects in
|ht. enforcement of law in the oc-

and a half years ago after serving
as head of a special committee of
the Justice Ministry inquiring
into the administration of law
and order in the territories. She
subsequently resigned from the
panel chrgin that her report had
been shelved.
It dealt mainly with com-
plaints by West Bank Arabs that
little or no action was taken when
they were victims of violence or
harassment by Jewish extrem-
ists. Karp's report found that in-
adequate investigation by the
police in the territories was due to
a shrotage of manpower, lack of
coordination between the various
security agencies and little co-

plaints in recent months of insuf-
ficient investigation of crimes ag-
ainst Arabs and of Jewish
suspects who are never brought

sion as he watched his people groaning beneath
their burdens. However, even the princess would
not have been able to save him from punishment,
go he fled to Midian in the south-eastern part of
Sinai, beyond Egyptian jurisdiction.
MOSES BECAME a shepherd to the flocks of
the pagan priest, Jethro, and married his
daughter. We are taught that God never give an
exalted office to a man unless he has first been
tested in small things. Moses saw a lamb escape
from the flock to a stream where it quenched its
thirst. He said: "Had I known that thou wast
thirsty, I would have taken three in my arms and
carried thee thither." A Heavenly voice
resounded: "As thou livest, thou art fit to
shepherd Israel." (Midrash).
In the episode of the burning bush, he was also
nominated as God's agent to liberate his people.
When Moses was told by God to plead with
Pharaoh to let his people go, he felt completely
unfit for such a task. Already an old man of
eighty, God rebuked him for he had God's assur-
ance that He would be with him. Moses was also
hesitant because he was not eloquent, having
spent years in the great silent spaces of the
dessert, and he could only stammer forth the
message of freedom.
However, he was commanded to return to
Egypt to ask Pharaoh to set the slaves free, with
his brother Aaron as spokesman. The Midrash
tells us it took God seven days to convince him.
Leaving the calm of the desert, he plunged into
the whirlpool of history. Despite their bondage,
the Jews were not really ready to leave Egypt any
more than Pharaoh was ready to let them go.
THE TEN plagues followed one another
rapidly, and in the end not only the Jews left
hurriedly, but a number of non-Jewish slaves
went with them, racing against time to escape
Egypt and Pharaoh's wrath. When the Jews
safely crossed the Red Sea, Moses began to sing
the most lyrical poem in Scripture.
Seven weeks later came the unique event when
God spoke directly to Moses at Mt. Sinai and
revealed His Law. He spoke not of theology or the
wonders of the universe He had created, but of
man's relationship to man, of one's duties
towards others. When Moses returned to his
people with the Ten Commandments and found
them worshipping the Golden Calf, he was so
angry he was ready to kill he never knew what
to expect from this "stiff-necked people" he was
leading. They had seen God at work and learned
nothing from it. Perhaps sharing something with
assimilated Jews today, they still yearned for the
fleshpots of Egypt.
Moses castigated his peiople often and
severely. But he also defended them against their
enemies, and at times even against God. He was
both God's emissary to Israel and Israel's God.
Yet he remained a human being, with many flaws
he had no supernatural powers. He had a
temper, and he was punished for it. He lived
according to the Biblical count to one hundred
and twenty, and spent his last hour blessing the
tribes of Israel.
HE AND HIS generation were forbidden to
enter the Promised Land but he died overlooking
the Land. Then, escorted by the priest, Eleazar,
and his son, Pinhas, followed by Joshua, he
climbed Mount Nebo. The Midrashtells us he left

Moses was the most solitary and most powerful
hero in Biblical history. Among comparisons
made by historians, one of the most interesting is
with Muhammad because of the many roles both
undertook. Moses had an immense task, and he
changed thecourse of history after him,
nothing was ever the same again. He has been
immortalized repeatedly in theology, literature,
poetry, painting and sculpture.
As we sit around the Seder table, retelling the
story of the Exodus, we can only be awed at this
man and his achievements. He was a man both of
faith and of action. He had a passion for social
jutice and national freedom. He knew both
triumphs and bitter disappointments. He was a
poet and figted strategist with a complex person-
ality. No one ever accomplished so much. The
Law bears his name and Moshe Rabbenu our
Master Moses remains the only man ever to
see God face-to-face.
