I'VES BUT ... AND IT IS A BIG BUT ,
Women's Leader Thinks Jewish Law Sexist
RABBI ARTHUR HERTZBERG
By Special Report
Is Jewish law sexist?
"Yes, but ." said Rabbi
Arthur Hertzberg, president of
the American Jewish Congress,
in a recent WNBC-TV broad-
cast on "Jewish Heritage," spon-
sored by the New York Board
The question was posed by
Mrs. Jacqueline Levine, presi-
dent of the National Women's
Division, during a discussion
of the activities of the Amer-
ican Jewish Congress wom-
The questions and answers
went this way:
Mrs. Levine: "We keep hear-
ing more and more today
particularly from younger Jew-
ish women that Jewish law
is sexist. What do you think
RABBI HERTZBERG: "It de-
pends on which rabbi you ask.
Most Orthodox rabbis will an-
swer that it simply isn't true
that Jewish law is not sexist,
that it recognizes or institution-
alizes the biological and role
differences between men and
"Ask people to the left of the
Orthodox religiously and you'll
get a wide variety of answers. I
therefore have to label my an-
swer as quite personal and I'd
better add that I belong per-
sonally to the Conservative
"I think Jewish law is sex-
ist but sexist in a very in-
tricate way. For centuries
Jewish law has been trying to
overcome its own sexism.

Change Seen in Peron's Policies

ransom, including ten Jews,
thereBy Winning tens of millions
of dollars for its coffers.
GENERAL PERON and his
main associates have expressed
friendly feelings towards the
Jewish community and Israel.
There has even been a hint that
Jjy Peron himself might undertake
jE \ a visit to the Jewish State. How-
^j* ever, there are also within the
[ Peronista movement groups to
I the far Left and far Right which
are important in themselves and
anti-Semitic in their attitudes.
They have both been amen-
able to propaganda fed to them
by the Arab League and El
Fatah. Gen. Peron is anxious to
bring these extremist wings
underhis direct control. The open
under his direct control. The open
strong enough to allow him to
cope with this among many
In essence, the immediate sit-
uation of the Jewish community
is that of all Argentinians it
depends upon whether or not
stability can be restored to the
country. There are no serious
menances to them as Jews per se.
However, it cannot be ruled out
that more stringent economic
measures will have their effect
on the upper middle class in
which many Jews are to be found,
although such measures have no
deliberate anti-Semitic intent.
AS FAR as external relations
are concerned, although Gen. Pe-
ron has proclaimed himself as
standing firmly with the non-
aligned world, he has stated clear-
ly that he will follow a policy
of friendship with both sides in
the Middle East dispute. He has
already given tangible proof of
this. When the Iraqi Ambassa-
dor in Madrid, during a recent
approach, suggested that ex-
panded cultural relations between
their two countries must also
include some explanation of the
plight of the Palestinians, Gen.
Peron interrupted him to say that
he did not wish to import into
Argentina problems which were
none of her business.
There are signs, however, that
the Arab terrorist movements are
trying to extend their penetra-
tion of Latin America and estab
lish the areas as a bulwark in
their campaign against Israel
and Jews in general. DAIA, the
representative organization of
Argentine Jewry, has publicly
protested against rumours that,
in addition to the Arab League
office already operating here, an
El Fatah headquarters is to be
established in Argentina to serve
the whole of Latin America.
The local communities are in
no state to combat such activities
which, given the present political
instability, would probably draw
the support of anti-Semitic ex-
tremists from Left to Right.

The Majority Also Have Rights
Inevitably, there will be those who will criticize the
Aiti-Defamalion League charge of "reverse discrimination"
in employment practices at Florida International University.
Such practices, they say have been designed to deal
with the prejudicial reluctance ol administrative personnel
in the hiring of faculty or lower echelon staff employees,
particularly in clerical positions.
But we take the position, along with the ADL, that
built in hiring practices deliberately calling for preferential
treatment to members of minority groups are as undesirable
as evil they were designed to eliminate.
This is not a question of taking up the cudgels for
the "poor litile rich girl," but the majority does have civil
rights, too, and they must not be compromised any more
than the rights of the minority.

Peace of 'Chaos and Void'
Hardly did the world finish listening to the unhappy
conclusion drawn by Tunisia's Habib Bourguiba that his
Middle Eost "peace mission" had failed, then two other
equally distinguished leaders in the affairs of the Arab
world spoke up to offer "peace missions" of their own.
Algerian Foreign Minister. Abdelasiz Bouteflika de-
clared in Paris that direct negotiations between Israel and
the Palestinians are "possible."
Egypt's Foreign Minister Mohammed Hassan el-
Zayyat announced in Vienna that his government was
cctively searching for a "third door"' out of the Israel-Arab
impasse meaning not the one marked "occupation and
annexation," nor the one to war.
This is a pretty hefty bunch, and it does seem strange
that in the face of so overwhelming an outcry for peace
from three major Arab nations the Middle East is still no
closer to peace than before.
The answer probably lies in Bourguiba's precondition
--we have yet to hear the preconditions of el Zayyat or
Bouteflika. What Bourguiba wants is for Israel to return
to its 19-17 bordt.s.
Considering that the Jewish state was no* p.cclaimed
until May, 1948, we find it hard to understand just what
lunifia's chief has in mind.
Cynically, we can conclude that he means Israel
'iiould leturn to a status of non-existence. Or else, we can
argue that he means the borders proclaimed by the orig-
inal United Nations partition plan.
But -that would mean the cancellaticn cf all history
since then the emerging of Israel as a nation, the wars
lie Arab:, waged and lost against her right to sovereignty.
What, in short, these very charitable Arab spokesmen
want is to begin from the beginning, when as Genesis re-
calls for us, there was "tchu va Vohu" chaos and void.
Education: A Serious Problem
The latest Supreme Court decision barring aid to
jarcchial schools, supported by most of the major Jewish
organizations, was a crushing blow to the Orthodox day
school movement, according to their spokesmen.
Or-.hodox leaders have appealed to the nation's fed-
erafiono and welfare funds to "reorder priorities" and give
more financial aid to Jewish education meaning primar-
ily the clay schools but the other major religious divisions
ore also beginning to make demands for more funds than
have been allocated to this purpose in the past.
^ I New York's response has been to mount a long-range
c.rive to raise S20 million for Jewish education, as con-
hasted with its present annual allocation of SI million
to its Board of Education. Increased funds are also budg-
eted for the Greater Miami Central Agency for Jewish
I ducatian's program next year but the problem of meeting
edded costs and the need to reach many more young
people in this area is, as has been recognized in New York
and other cities with large Jowish populations, a "serious"
LJistorian Arnold Toynbee thinks
of the Jews since the life of
Jesus as a fossil people.
In his monumental "Study of
History.'' as Manrice Samuel
points out so brilliantly, Toynbee
writes of Jews as if Maimonides.
ibn Gabirol, the .Mishnah. the
laimud. Spinoza and Chassidism
OF COURSE, Toynbee knows
they did exist. But in his "His-
torj." he manages to dismiss
them as if the; did not exist

velopment of Christian civiliza-
And so. for example, of Spi-
noza lie writ !8: -The cxtraordi-

that affection of the rationalist
form as a disguise for a basically
fallacious mysticism which in
19th century values, the rigidity
of doctrine concealed behind the
apparent lancifulness of utterance
characterizing the literature of
the Ugaritk Kingdom.''
Critics See His Prejudice
As in much of Toynbee's hys-
terical writings. 1 am not really
sure what this murky paragraph
means, other than that to char-
acterize Goethe's high regard for
Spinoza as "extraordinary" was to
est that somewhere, some-
how Goethe picked up a mortal
weakness for which he must be
IN SHORT, even in so distin-
guished a mind as Goethe's i|>
reverence he felt for a Jew needs
to be dismissed as a quirk, a de-
fect in him, a bad cold.
Then- are many critics of Toyn-
bee and hi- 'History" who long
ago noted his singular prejudices
and calculating capacity to twist
the facts in order to suit them.
Samuel, in his Professor and
the Fossil.'' refers, among others,
to Dutch historian Peter Geyl;
Herbert I. Ifuller, in his heyday
a distinguished mrinber of the
Purdue faculty; and the laic Pit-
rim Sorokiil, of Harvard.
Geyl, long disturbed by Toyn-
bee's shockingly unacademic dis-
missal of Yiddish as "the Jewish
dialect of German,'' draws a par-
allel between this and Toynbee's
dismissal of still another lan-
The I'nxholarly Scholar
There is also. Geyl writes of
Toynbee's "History," a passage
"in which Afrikaans as a cultural
is belittled in compari-
son with Dutch. ... It is amus-
ing to see so completely misin-
formed a statement delivered so
CLYL CONCLUDES about
Toynbee that his "History" is
filled with such examples in
v hich he serves up no more "than
a tiny spoonful out of the great
caul Iron he selects the in-
stanc s which ill support his
thesis, or he presents them in a
way that suits him."
Adopting a tone of acid humor.
Geyl apologizes for Toynbee's
prejudices as if they were merely
unscholarly methods by observ-
ing that "not even Prof. Toynh- .
can know everything." But the
giant 20th century ifteuectual
Pitrim Sorokin, in his "The Pat-
tern of the Past," pulls no such
punches, lie notes of Toynbt

For years there has been a segment of the leadership of the Jew-
ish community that has felt there was a great need for a Jewish com-
munity center, (amp Ka-Dcc-Mah, our very successful summer day
camp, was really started as an experiment many years ago to determine
whether the community would accept such a facility and, more im-
portant, the initial concept of a J< wish community center. When our
community survey was undertaken in 1970, its purpose was to deter-
mine the s,/o, composition, religious practices and beliefs, organiza-
tional affiliation, and opinion of those Interviewed as to whether a
Jewish community center was important for the community. There
are now over 500 children in our day camp, and the results of the
survey were overwhelmingly in favor of the community center concept.
Before I continue I think it might be important to give at least
goipe basic outline of wnat a center is. We have in the Greater Holly-
wood area seven synagogues, each one with its own membership, its
own ritual and dogma, religious school, cultural activities and educa-
'iciial activities. Other than the temple organizations, we have over
4U different Jewish philanthropic or service organizations ranging from
the Anti-Defamation League to the Zionist Organizations of America.
The purpose of a Jewish community center could be to provide to
the entire community, affiliated or not, social, recreational and cul-
tural programs which very few of the individual organizations could
plan carry out. A community center would provide a meeting place
for our youth, both high school and college: it would be developing
skills and motor dexterity through activities programs, arts and crafts,
athletics, physical activity instruction and the like. Further, a good
center reaches out into the community to provide programs where
programs are needed, and it advises, guides and counsels individual
organizations and their leaders in the development of better programs
for their own constituencies.
Though ideally in many communities the center is a physical
structure with meeting rooms, gymnasiums, swimming pools, athletic
fields etc. this docs not to have to be the case initially. We in Holly-
wood are presently in the development stage of providing a Jewish
community center program. We have requested the YMHA of Greater
Miami, whose name is officially being changed to the Jewish Commu-
nity Centers of South Florida, to help us in this planning and imple-
We are now in the process of hiring a full-time center program
director whose responsibility will be to develop committee planning
'tructure, lo work with the existing organizational facilities, and to
provide programs for all age levels in the Greater Hollywood commu-
nity. A chairman and a cochairman of our lay committees have been
appointed, subcommittee chairmen and members are in the process
of development, and within the next six weeks there will begin in
Hollywood our own (enter programming using facilities of existing
temples, schools and public accommodations.
Included in the development of ideas and concepts will be our
eligiotH leaders, south advisors, professionals and a broad aspect of
This will be a major undertaking for this community and our in-
tmenl in time and personnel will indicate whether we really wish
to have the kind of program described above. It is up to all of us to
live together in a cooperative environment.
As I sec it. the future of building a solidly Jewish-oriented com-
munity is in our hands. The question is are we ready for it and do

were gifts to Russian Jews, many of
whom have been reduced io teach-
ing Hebrew as a means of main-
lining life. Deprived of the right
to work in their given fields, So-
viet Jews vvho have expressed a
desire to leave the USSR have
turned to any and every kind of
endeavor to eke out a living.
Meeting with perhaps 200 acti-
vists in front of the Moscow syna-
gogue on a Saturday afternoon,
the Hollywood group was told over
and over that the No. 1 concern
of the Soviets was the passage of
the Jackson amendment (to the
most favored nation legislation
pending in Congress). The Rus-
sians repeatedly expressed their
fear that should the amendment
fail, reprisals in the form of fur-
ther harassim nt (if not an actual
pogrom) would take olacc.
Thej asked that every American
write his congressman urging pas-
sage of the proviso that would,
make the lifting of exit taxes man-
datory and permanent. One Rus-
sian Jewish journalist told the
Americans that, with world atten-
tion focused on his country, he
I doubted "the possibility of a pi
grom." But he added that "public
opinion must continue to be
. brought to bear."
In refutation of some of the
tatements made by Communist
Party Chief Leonid Brezhnev, the
American group was told many
times of the "manipulative and
I highly subjective aspects'" of his
' pronouncements. For example, the
Russian official has "proved" that
many Jews apply for and are
t granted exit permits, only to re-
' consider and turn them down.
Yes, say the activists, especially
when four of the same family con-
sisting of two adults and two eld-
, erly (and possibly ill) adults make
applications. The visas will be giv-
en the elderly pair who must re-
fuse them since they cannot travel
unattended. They thus become
'wo more "loyal Russians who
have seen the error of their ways.
Soviet Jews, according lo the
Baers. Landmans and Millers, can
be classified on three levels: 1)
those who have actually applied for
exit permits and are willing to
lose their lives if necessary rather
than remain in Russia: 2) those
who, if the activists succeed, will,
thus encouraged, take up the cud-
gel themselves, and 3) those who
pretend they do not know what
is going on.
A Jew, however, appears to have
a better chance than other Soviet
nationals of getting out of the
USSR. Attempting to leave the
motherland is "high treason" un-
der the Russian penal code, no
matter vvho the would-be defector
is. Jews have the advantage of fi-
nancial backing and moral support
from world Jewry, while other
Soviets would have to act as indi

corps marched in and took their
places in front of the commemora- j
live flame. Next to arrive was Gen. ;
David Elazar. chief of staff, then
the president of the state who
was escorted by the chief of staff.
Promptly at 8:30 p.m. the an-
nouncement of the President's ar-
rival was made over loud speak-
ers, and the ceremony began with
the wailing of a siren. The sound
set the solemn mood for the occa-

"Because of the merit of their

The chaplain of the Israel de-
fense forces then pronounced a
special prayer followed by the kad-
dish. The night was still; there
was no sound except the speaker's
voice, the breathing of those around
us, and an occasional sign.
Suddenly there was a terrific
boom rising to an instant crescen-
do. To us it sounded like a bomb,
blanche whispered, "Oh my God.''
The kaddish continued. No one
moved except the security mer
who moved toward the sound very'
quickly. All eyes were turned in
the direction from which the noise
had come. Nobody moved a muscle
or tried to get away. There was
no panic, no confusion. The cere-
mony continued without interrup-
tion. Everyone began murmuring,
asking "what happened, what hap-
pened?" The kaddish was followed
by the chanting of El Mole Rach-
amin (the Memorial Prayer).
During the chanting word came
to us that it was not a bomb. A
part of the wooden steps had col-
lapsed. People fell, but fortunately
no one was hurt. The fact that it
was not a bomb as we had feared,
coupled with the solemnity of the
moment during the chanting,
caused Blanche to cry, mostly
from relief and thankfulness.
The next day we could find no
mention of the incident in the
newspapers or over the radio. How
ever, we met someone who had
been near the steps that collapsed.
He told us that no one was hurt.
When the chanting was over an
announcement was made for ev-
eryone to remain until the depart-
ure of the President and the chief
of staff. When the dignitaries and
the family representatives de-
parted, the portable barricades
were removed. Everyone began
streaming into the holy area and
to the wall.
As we neared the wall, we of-
fered a prayer to God for the priv-
ilege of being present at this his
toric and awe-inspiring event.
Festivities Flags and Felafel
The end of Memorial Day and
the beginning of the festivities for
Independence Day were ushered in
by sirens at 7 p.m. Sunday evening.
Sunday was Erev Yom Haatz-

all business activity stopped.

in anticipation of the beginning of
festivities. The streets looked like
a combination of carnival time and

NJCRAC Declares 'Jesus Christ Superstar' Film Receives
Mostly Unfavorable Review Across The Nation
The National Jewish Commu-
nity Relations Advisory Council
reports thai "local newspaper re-
actions to the rock film, ""Jesus
Christ Superstar." primarily in the
form of film reviews, can be gen-
erally categorized as favorable to
the tilm. with leveral notable ex-
ceptions but. in many instances,
the concerns of the Jewish commu-
nity are reflected in the reviews or
subsequent news articles.'"
Calling on the Jewish community
to make every effort to make its
views known to the press, the coun-
cil states thai "as the pattern of
reviews anii comments begins to
emerge, It i eai that where re-
viewers and religious editors are
thus sensitized to our concerns
they arc much more likely to ra-
iled these concerns in their wri-
'Examples of this sensitizing
process were found in several
cities, including Detroit and San
Francisco. The initial review- of
JCS in the two Detroit daily news-
papers were favorable to the film
and contained no reference to the
concerns of the Jewish community.
However, following communica-
tions with the newspapers, the
News carried an article based on
our evaluation of the film and the

"Similarly, following discussions

cerns about the film was carried,

The council has developed three
categories of press react ions:

Examiner., Boston Globe, Toledo
Reviews which praised JCS but
which noted, in the revii w or sub-

concern of the Jewish community:

Tzedakah, then, affects our attitudes not onh towards our
brothers but toward* every life. While each of us is certainly
coi erned with helping as much as possible to alleviate the suf-
fering of his fcilow men. we must take care not to forget that
ds are even more dependent upon us than people. This is a
nation that spends billions of dollars on pet food, hut at the
same time it is a cation where millions of innocent creatures
an put f death ea :i year because of man's Indifference. It is
astonisl ing that legislative bodies can concern themselves with
en Hess debate on appropriations for roads or jetports while
most humane societies and similar groups must depend on ori-
vate largesse tor their existences. Surely earing for homeless
animals lies within the public domain as much as caring for
I ir community is to control the births of unwanted ani-
mal i. we must help make possible their neutering and spaying.
But our local humane society is primitive and ran down and
cramped for space: the surgery lacks basic equipment and needs
modernization. And where ehe is there to turn'.'
Perhaps the Jew;sh community could bring pressure to bear
on its elected officials in an effort to obtain funds for the limp
lag and barely alive humane society. Helping to care for animals
is as much an obligation as any we shall ever undertake. Let us
not foresake those that cannot defend themselves.
