United Way Hurt
By Inflation;
Needs Volunteers
Inflation is not oniy hurting
Broward's buying power, but it
is also affecting the number of
people who ordinarily volunteer
their services to charity.
Johanna White, executive ili
rector of the United Way's Vol-
unteer Action Center, said her
agency has a large number of un
filled needs for volunteers and
the number is growing weekly.
"Some of the people who nor-
mally volunteer are now seeking
employment," Mrs. White said.
"The cost of gasoline has also
deterred some prospective volun-
teers "
Regardless of the reason, hun-
dreds of interesting volunteer
jobs are going bogging, Mrs.
White said. The number of vol
unteers is about 20 per cent less
than last year at this time. Th:'
number of peopl 1 usually varie;
from month to month, but is now
down to abaut 63.
Agencies needing volunteers
have come up with Interesting
and unique jobs, she added. Foi
exampie, the i'.unpano Beach Po
lice Department needs someone
to do crime analysis, and the City
of Ft. Lauderdale wants seven
volunteers for various jobs.
Jobs all the way from tutoring
chi.dren to sticking labels for
mailing are available. Interested
persons should call the Volunteer
Action Center, 1300 S. Andrews
Ave., Ft. Lauderdaie.

President Ford Responds To
Hollywood CRC's Protest
Protesting the community-wide reaction to recent remarks
made by General George S. Brown at Duke University, the Com-
munity Relations Committee of the Jewish Federation of South
Broward, under the chairmanship of Abe Durbin. communicated
its distaste to President Gerald Ford and received the following
letter from the White House:
"This is the first opportunity since returning from
my trip to thank you for your mailgram about General
George S. Brown's remarks at Duke University. I not
only apprecate and understand your concern but I have
publicly rebuked the General and privately conveyed to
him in no uncertain terms my disapproval of his com-
"Throughout his military career, as you may be
aware, General Brown has had a distinguished record of
service to his nation. For this reason, although I consider
his remarks a serious mistake, I do not plan to ask for
his resignation. The General has recognized his mistake
and has publicly apologized.
"I appreciate your taking the time to let me know
your views on this."

Why do many Jews tradi-
tionally eat "latkes" on
Generally speaking, special
days and occasions usually were
marked by special foods. This
may have especially been true
of Chanukah, which is the only
holiday of importance not to be
observed with a full meal or
feast in its honor as are other
Some say this is so because
the spiritual survival of the peo-
ple was at stake in the dramatic
episode behind Chanukah and
therefore, the observance should
be mainly spiritual and not
physical. Nevertheless, some
semblance of feasting seemed to
have developed, and so at least
some special delicacy like latkes
I are eaten on Chanukah.
Some explain the meaning of
I the latkes by saying that it is
symbolic of the heroic women of
Israel who rushed warm food to
the fighting men in battle. Since
latkes do not take much time to
I prepare, some sort of latkes may
I have been served. Others say the
I latkes commemorate the bravery
| of a Jewish heroine who fed a
I tyrant cheese or cheese latkes to
| ake him thirsty, whereupon she
|ga e him enough wine to intoxi-
cate him. after which she be-
Iheaded him.
There are others who claim
jthat the significance of the latkes
p the fact that they are fried in
[oil. It is the oil that reminds us
of the miracle of oil in the sanc-
tuary of old during the days of
the Maccabees, which is the main
event commemorated by the
Why is a Menorah used in
the observance of the Chan-
ukah holiday?
The main event of the histor-
ical background of Chanukah was
considered by the rabbis to have
been the miracle of the oil which
was used to kindle the Menorah
of old when a supply which was
only ample for one day lasted
eight days. Basically, one lamp
each day is the minimum require-
ment for each home. However,
ground was left for those who
would embellish their observance
to light a progressive number
of lamps (from one to eight) on
succeeding nights of the festival.
On this basis, instead of hav-'
ing eight separate lamps, Men-1
orahs of eight holders (plus one
for the Shamash) were devel-
oped. It is also quite likely that
the use of the Menorah on Chan-1
ukah is to commemorate the Holy
Menorah that once stood and was ;
lit in the holy Temple of Jeru-
This was especially so since
Titus used the Menorah as a
symbol of the defeat of the Jews
by having it represented on his
famous Arch of Titus at a later
period. Jews, therefore, became
imbued with the idea of showing
and using the Menorah symbol
on Chanukah to indicate that
Judaism still lives and is far from
being extinct.
Letter to The Editor
We Should
Stop, Think
EDITOR, rir.ridun-Shofar:
UNICEF has not s??nt a dim?
in Israel since 1966. Duii;-^ th;>
period, it spent millions in the
Arab countries, including Saudi
Arabia. Certainly Saudi Arabia
is not in financial need.
UNESCO has just voted to
isolate Israel in its European re-
gional group. This means that it
will not spend any money on
projects in Israel. Heretofore
UNESCO's spending in Israel
was very small.
UNESCO's anti-Israel move
was the most important thing
that UNESCO achieved in 1974.
Immediately, Pope Paul VI
awarded the 1974 Vatican Peace
Prize to UNESCO.
IT WAS UNESCO that printed
textbooks for the Arab refugee
camps that taught hatred of Is-
rael. Israel heard of these books
and protesteed to UNESCO, but
nothing was done.
In 1967. when Israel captured
some of these Arab camps and
saw these textbooks, they re-
moved them from the camps. In
the Arab camps not captured by
Israelin Lebanon, in Syria and
in Jordanthese books are still
being used to teach hatred of
Before we run around raising
money for UNICEF or for UN-
ESCO or for the UN itself, stop

'Seven Lean Years'
Premiar Yitzhak Rabin's warning that Israel faces
"seven lean years" and that her future depends upon
whether she can emerge from the ordeal unscathed cer-
tainly puts things on the line.
There- can be no misunderstanding of the Premier's
Involved is a lowering of the gauntlet to those Israelis
who rioted recently in the face of the newest and most
stringent economic belt-tightening Israel has ever had to
Involved is a challenge to the would-be "invaders"
cf the West Bank who remain unyielding in their view
that there must be no returning of occupied lands.
Involved is Rabin's frank admission that a war with
Syria in 1975 is "a real possibility."
We can go on and on to detail what the Premier
meant by "seven lean years." Certainly these examples
ere sufficient illustration.
The point is clear: a call for incredible self-sacrifice
through austere self control.
The point must not be lost on American Jews. Rabin's
call extends to us, as well. The self-sacrifice, the austere
self-control must not be borne by Israel alone. Through
our means, through our energy, through our dedication to
the Israeli cause, we must stand with Israel in her hour
of greatest travail.
From Out of the Past
When, recently, Israeli and other observers began
drawing parallels between the UN and the League of Na-
tions; Yasir Arafat and Adolf Hitler; a cowering and cow-
ardly Europe today and the cowering and cowardly
Europe of the 1930's. observers yawned, stretched and
begged them to cut their "boring" parallels short.
They called the parallels "Jewish obsessiveness" with
the fate of the Nazi slaughter of the six-million.
But as tyrants these days are increasingly lionized,
as international law is increasingly subverted to serve
tyrannical ends, and as the peoples of the world increas-
ingly call tyranny justice for questionably oily ends, the
parallels make increasing sense.
What else is the refusal to debate Arab terrorism in
the name that it is populist revolution other than out of
the history pages of the 1930's?
Master Plan for Exodus
Jewish Agency Executive Chairman Pinhas Sapir's
report that the Soviat Union acceded to an annual exit of
Soviet Jews to the tune of 35,000 not 60,000 is in-
teresting for two reasons.
One is that Sapir has finally touched on the most
dangerous aspect of the master plan for a Jewish exodus
from Moscow's Egypt.
We have talked about it often enough in the past
and been criticized often enough for doing just that and
nothing elss as if our being silent about it would make
it go away.
And that is ihat inevitably there would come a time
when the number of Jews willing to leave Russia but not
go to Israel would pose an embarrassment for Israel and
for diaspora Jewish leaders engineering the exodus.
The other problem Sapir's report highlights is that,
already, the nations of the world those bastions of
freedom in the west are reacting to the refusal of Soviet
Jews arriving in Vienna to go to Israel by putting up walls
around the possibility of emigration to their countries.

The fact is that public opinion
has not taken kindly to govern-

THE REASON is obvious
and no different from the one

that the federal government

Their reasons were those that
most Ametleans probably share
with them:
That Nixon badly a'..used pres-

stute-within-a-state to arise;
that he accepted and sanctioned
covett illegal operations for his
political advantage; that when
they surfaced, he took part in an
eaboiate plan to cover them up
and obstruct justice; that he cut
moral corners on taxes and on
improvements to his residences
for his financial gain; that he
repeatedly lied to the people in
his maneuvers to escape the con-
sequences of what he had done.

&^rs By BOB KEKBH, txecutive Director,
Jewish Federation of South Broward, Inc.
I have often been called Don Quixote, the dreamer and fighter
of windmills, and possibly I deserve the title. But what do I dream
about, and what do I fijht for? I dream about a strong Israel, a
vibrant Jewish community in America, and a vital South Broward
I was recently asked what my ultimate goal is. My answer was
short: it is basically this that every Jew sometime during the day
does something and can state that he did it because he was Jewish.
That's my ultimate dream.
The implementation of the goal is difficult because when one
faces the practicalities of life, one realizes that humans are not per-
fect, that directions are often barred by road-blocks, and that detours
must constantly be made.
Israel has its dream, too ... to live in peace, to develop its nation,
to be a haven for all Jews who wish to go there. Is their dream less
than mine? Is it impractical? Can it survive in a world made up
of imperfect beings?
As we move onward into 1975 we see unemployment rising, the
economy in a recession, prices inflated, and we can look at this very
pessimistically. In all honesty, let us compare what we have today
with what we had twenty years ago. What are our life styles, our
standard of living? For most of us they have certainly improved.
We live better have more spend more. In Israel they make
less, pay more taxes, and inflation has risen 40 percent.
So when you and I complain about inflation or other kinds of
deterioration in our economy or life style, what are we comparing
it to? Last year? Ten years ago? 20 years ago? A generation ago?
Let us be realistic and let us at the same time be dreamers.
Let us all dream together that peace will conic, but we know that
dreams need hard work to become reality.
That's how I see it!

Rabin Sees 'Seven Lean Years' as Test for Israel

JERUSALEM-*JTA)-Premier Yiuhak Rabins candid views of the situation Israel faces now
end in the future were presented to the Israeli public.
In what some observers termed the most important statement he has made since becomina
Premier, the former Army Chief of Staff and Ambassador to the U.S. told his fellow citizens frankly
that Israel faces "seven lean years," and its future depends on whether it can emerge from them un-
quiet Egyptian undertakings to
the U.S.
lit-: sAID it would take that
long for the effects of the Arab
oil weapon to be overcome in the
United States and Western
Europe, and until then it would
continue to affect the interna-
tional political situation.
Rabin also said that Israel now
has six weeks to decide what
price it is willing to pay to gain
time through a further accord
with Egypt.
In six weeks from now. Soviet
Communist Party Secretary Le-
onid I. Brezhnev will visit Cairo,
and Rabin stressed that it was in
Israel's vital interest to keep
Egypt from falling once more in-
to the Soviet camp.
RABIN, who held Israel's key
ambassadorial post in Washing-
ton for five years, spoke frankly
of his nation's relations wt%h the
American Jews.
He acknowledged that Presi-
dent Ford, vitally concerned over
the success of his economic poli-
cies in the next two years, was
Interested in avoiding a crisis
with th? Arab oil producing
In that connection Rabin
warned thai it did no good to
exaggerate the pewer of American
Jewry said it was neither wise
nor tactful to forever be "call-
ing on American Jewry" as urged
by the Likud every time Israel
faced a crisis.
HE SAID American Jewish
political power would be weak-
ened by the new election cam-
paign financing laws following
the Watergate scandal.
Rabin remarked that Gen.
George S. Brown, chairman of
the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was one
of Israel's strongest sympathiz-
ers and said that Israelis must
beware of creating a situation in
which the anti-Israel. anti-Semitic
allegations such as Brown made
recently become the rule rather
than the exception.
The Premier expressed these
and other views in a lengthy in-
terview with Haaretz correspon-
dent Yoel Marcus, published
He indicated a greater degree
of flexibility than heretofore in
Israel's position on a second
stage agreement with Egypt and
some observers suggested that
Rabin's remarks on that subject
were aimed as much to Cairo as
to the Israeli public.
RABIN SAID for the first
time, publicly, that the next stage
of an Israeli-Egyptian agreement
might well be military in form
but would contain important po-
litical content in the form of
fronts are renewed again, and
for a longer period than the
present six months, Rabin said.
HE CONCEDED that negotia-
tions with Egypt cou.d lead to
strains in Israel's relations with
the U.S. "We must walk on tip-
toe through the next year," the
Piemier said.
"If we reach 197C,
we snail have gained not one
year but two," he added in an
apparent reference to the next
A-: rican Prejidential election.
In that connection, he noted
that Egypt has. kept all the un-
dertakings it gave to Washington
last January when the first dis-
engagement was concluded.
Rabin did not repeat earlier
Israeli demands for a formal
declaration ol "ii<>n-'uellii{erenc>"
by Egypt in return for a further
disengagement i act but indicated
that Israel would not rule out
military demarche if accompa-
nied by substantive political un-
dertakings madi' confidentially to
the U.S.
pas* have given as examples of
political undertakings an end to
the economic boycott: access by
Israeli ships and cargoes to the
Suez Canal; and a scaling down
of political waii'are against Is-
Rabin said that if an additional
accord could be reached with
Egypt, Israel wou'.d bo in a sub-
stantially better position in the
event of a new war with Syria.
He indicated that war with
Syria was a "'real possibility" in
'The question is will Syria
launch a new war with Egypt as
her partner in planning, execu-
tion and enthusiasm, or with
Egypt dragged in, unwilling and
perhais not ftiliy prepared?
If Syria begins the war alone,
without concommitant Egyptian
martial enthusiasm, this would
leave usat least in the crucial
early dayswith only one ftftnt
to fight on," Rabin said.
BUT THE Premier stressed
that Israel was not prepared to
pay any price for a new disen-
gagement accord with Egypt. He
said that Israel would insist that
the Egyptian army does not move

Dr. Shterirs Trial Beginning 1
The trial of Dr. Mikhail Shtern,
a 56-year oid Vinnitsa doctor, is
scheduled to begin mid-December.
Dr. Shtern is accused of "brib-
ery" and attempted homicide''
(by poisoning young children).
Investigating officials have
been browbeating witnesses, mak-
ing them lie and give testimony
accu:ing a doctor they always
trusted and respected of the in-
tention to poison their children.
IT ALL BEGAN in September
1973. Dr. Shtern, his wife Ida,
and sons Victor, a physicist, and
August, a biologist, received an
invitation to Israel.
A Beniot consultant in a poly-
clinic for years. .Mikhail was born
into a religious family and has
staunchly advocated his Jewish-
ness, despite strong local and
regional anti-Semitic pressures.
"We all began to undergo
systematic and continuous har-
rassment and persecution imme-
diately after receiving this invi-
tation to Israel." said his son.
"On May 12, 1974, our apartment
was broken into by unknown
persons for an unknown purpose.
... On May 25, our father was
arrested by officials of the KGB.
Ten men broke into the apart-
ment in the most brutal manner
without warning.
"On May 29, during the investi-
gation, the Procurator of the
Vinnitsa district stated that the
"bribery' accusation against our
father was connected with our
desire to emigrate to Israel."
BUT IT became clear that the
attempt of the KGB to institute
a Dolitical case was doomed, as
they had no evidence. Thus the
case was handed over to the Pro-
curator's office with instructions
to prepare some sort of case in
order that Dr. Shtern be brought
to trial.
Arieh Nesher, (top, center) special emissary of the Prime
Minister of Israel and vice president of Haifa University,
is shown with Lewis E. Cohn, (left) and Melvin H. Baer at
a recent training session for campaign hierarchy held at
the Hallandale holiday Inn. Also attending the leadership
course were representatives of the Women's Division of
the Combined Jewish Appeal/Israel Emergency Fund, (be-
low, from left) Phyllis Kraemer, Marcia Tobin. Arlene
Pritcher and Karen Margulies.
When the accusation was pre-
sented to him. all of the doctor's
personal documents were remov-
ed, including his diploma as
Candidate of Sciences, his manu-
scripts of scientific articles, lists
of scientific works, and other
personal items. Exit visas for his
wife and youngest son were h?ld
back, and the doctor was sent
to jail.
The Soviet government has
he'd Dr. Mikhail Shtern in prison
for seven months without med-
ical attention for tuberculosis
and possible paralysis. Both sons
have appealed to President Ford
on behalf of their father, who
has been a doctor for more than
30 years.
One son, Victor, recently re-
ceived an exit permit in an an-
parent effort by authorities to
get him "out of the way Local
hooligans have threatened Mrs.
Shtern and the family with
"physical revenge."
THE CHARGE of "attempting
to poison little children who
were under his care" remains.
Akselbant, the defense attorney
who defended Victor Polsky re-
cently, is also defending Shtern.
(Polsky was ordered out of the
USSR within six days.)
The Shtern family would like
to make an appeal to the medical
profession, "whose aim in life has
always been to save the lives of
others, and all people of con-

ter. It refers particularly to an
{..tomaton in human form, creat-
ed in magical way by the use
OX Holy names.
The idea that it is possible to
eate a living being in this man-
r is common to many ancient
".copies. In Judaism it is asso-
riated with the magical interpre-
tation of the Safer Yetzirab
(.Book of Creation).
According to this concept, the
word Golem "came to mean a
: bot or mechanical monster
T.agically created when its mas-
r infused life into a clay model
by inserting one of the mystic
antes of (iod under its tongue.
' he Golem would then obey the
best of his creator." (Encyclo-
pedia of the Jewish Religion,

name of God is usually trans
terated as YHWII or JHVH
(Yahweh or lehovah) but which
in Hebrew is never pronounced
as written but always pronounced
-Adonai (Lord).
It is interesting to note that in
this Talmudic passage the word
' olem does not appear. The key
v ord is taken from the Hebrew
word Gever (man).
There are many other refer-
ences in the Talmud and the
Commentaries about the power
of these letters to create living
beings according
to specific
But. whereas originally such
creation was purely symbolic, a
sort of ecstatic experience which
fo lowed a festive rite, later this
concept was transformed in Jew-
i h legends to the power to cre-
ate a real creature fulfilling tasks
imposed upon it and also able to
bring about destruction and ruin.
From the 12th century on
!'!'"c legends occur in Jewish
literature and the arts. The word
Golem began to be used to de

Moscow Gives
Arms To
recent visit of Palestine Libera-
tion Organization Chief Yasir
Arafat to Moscow resulted in
the establishment of a direct
pipeline of Soviet weapons to
Palestinian terrorists, it was
learned here.
The weapons are said to in-
the latest model Kalachni-
kof automatic assault rifle and
mobile anti-aircraft missiles and
launchers known as the "Strela"
or SAM-7 which can b carried
with a shoulder harness.
THE NEW Kalachnikof can
fire grenades up to 250 meters
and the SAM-7s will increase
the defense capability of terror-
ist bases against Israeli air at-
tacks, sources said.
According to the sources. El
Fatah has already organized a
system to transport these weap-
ons from the Syrian port of La-
takiah where they are unloaded
from Russian merchant ships to
bases in Syria and southern
I.ebanon and from Syria, via
Jordan, to terrorist cells in Is-
rael's administered territories.
Previously, the terrorists re-
ceived their arms and ammuni-
tion from the USSR or the Peo-
ple's Republic of China indirect-
ly through the Arab states.
According to reliable sources,
the Palestinian terrorists are
making a serious effort to in-
volve Jordan in their activities.
TWO TERRORIST gangs that
penetrated Israeli territory re-
cently, including the one that at-
tacked Beit-Shean, came from
Jordan. They are trying to es-
tablish cells in refugee camps in
Jordan to use as bases for at-
tacks on Israel and against the
Hussein regime.
Jordanian security forces are
effectively countering these ef-
forts, but in some cases. Jordan-
ian officers were known to have
succumbed to bribery.

War is more likely t,i discourage immigration
than to encourage it"

dc-eption was fitHtilied by the outpouring of
fmiiK It is true that American Jews "want
Lsrael to lie everything that Jewish life ought
to t>e and is not elsewhere."
This represents hopeful fantasy but recog-
nition of tbe unrealistic desire is not a license
for Israelis to relinquish all religious respon-
slbility. Tlir' hitter pOJ that Israelis must learn
to take is that they cannot e.\u>t without the
support of the U.S.A. and Diaspora Jewry.
THIS DOBS not mean that Israel should
apply for admission to the l.S. as the 31 st
state, as was advocated by a rabbi, or that
Israeli! must -seek iierrnission of the Diaspora
for their actions.
It does mean that Israeli diplomats and edu-
cators should realize that the majority of the
Diaspora do not intend to make aliyah and that
they desire tf> remain as citizens of the countries
Where 'hey reside.
Instead of steering the attention of stu-
dents away from the histories of their native
lands and that of the Jews who preceded them
in these lands, they should encourage pride in
the local heritage as well as in religious ritual
and practice.
ONLY THROUGH the encouragement of
the acquisition of such knowledge can Diaspora
youth and following generations understand the
need for the support for Israel.
If Jewish education is shallow and reli-
gious practice all but non-existent and pride in
Icing a Jew lacking, what will support the fu-
ture urge t* provide for Israel?
Waxman comments that "Israel does not
serve American Jewry as a centra: dynamo or
reviving force, even though the sheer existence
Of Lsrael adds strength to Jewish life every-
(It might be more accurate to write, "to
the lives of Jews" rather than to "Jewish life.")
It is this strength that must be harnessed for
Judaism and not Basely for Israel.
We fear that as Israel has become a sur-
rogate for Judaism in the Diaspora. Israeli na-
tionalism has become, for many Israelis, the
surrogate for Judaism.
THE BOOK is a difficult one to evaluate
because of the unevenness of many of the con-
tributions. Blazer's statistical overview of Amer-
ican Jewry's war efforts is excellent. One ques-
tions his hope that we are reversing I. L. Gor-
don's admonition, "Be Everyman in the street
and a Jew at home."
We recall Borowitz's statement that Amer-
ican Jews are becoming reverse Marranos, Jews
in the street but non-practicing Jews at home.

to participate in raising our cultural level and
plce in proper perspective the stale. cHched

The only "paper" involved,
however, is Kissinger's exchange

Emigration in 1973 was 33,500,

said the reason for the decline
was in the realm of speculation.
Kissinger's acknowledgement
that "faith" was the ultimate test

THE SENATOR observed
"We'll have to take much of this

line" stand for that.
It is Tamraz who q- it Kidder,
Peabody to head the First Ara-
bian Corp.. "which has substan-
tial Arab oil backing."
It is Tamraz who offered a
pledge in th Lockheed deal
"that the Arab Investors would
in no way obstruct decisions by
Lockheed's board of directors"
despite their controlling interest,
and that they "would give Lock-
heed equal say in choosing the
board members to be drawn
from the Arab side."
in short, as Hoagland
wrote it and the Washington
Post Service distributed the
story, Tamraz felt hurt by the
rebuffs, both for himself and his
kind-hearted investors, because
their 1 id, made with the best of
irtentions, was above all meant
to "show Arab money coming
to the U.S. in a responsible
While, contrarilv, naughty
suspicious us, what we had in
mind all alone; when we invited
the Arab petro''i!lions here, was
"selective investment, that is to
say, investment predicated on
our own determination where
these investments could and
would be made.
As Federal Reserve Board'
Chairman Arthur Hums put it..
in Quaker Oats, perhaps, but i
certainly not in "our strategic
enterprises or industries."
AND SO, what Hoagland does
not report in his Washington
Post story is a statement about
Tamraz in the April issue of
Fortune Magazine:
"There is no reason," Tamraz
Ls quoted, "why we (the Arabs)
should not control U.S. compa-
nies. We can hire the best law-
yers, the best public relations
people, the best accountants. I
think we should make a major
takeover in the (United i States
as a matter of principle."
Adds Fortune: "The number of
Arabs who think as Tamraz ones
promises to grow."
THAT FACT becomes increas-
ingly apparent even as many
officials in Washington remain
immured to it.
For example, according to
Hoagland, Treasury Secretary
Simon, the man who believes the
danger of the petrodollar is over-
rated, "knew nothing about the
Lockheed deal."
Well, fortunately someone did,
and stopped it.
But the atmosphere of wake
thickens because the real Tam-
raz. not the laundered one cre-
ated by those "best pi'blic rela-
tions people" he is hiring, may
vet base his dav.

Well informed sources told the

the government had no intention
of deporting Capucci and intend-

That information scotched ru-

free Capucci and exile him to

three Senators who attended a
recent Buenos Aires meeting of
a right-wing, anti-Semitic group
at which the crowd chanted
"Jews to the gallows."

of B'nai B'rith. Provisional
President Jose Antonio Allende
was one of the three legislators
present at the meeting held in

Zionist and anti-Semitic affilia-
tions, who was one of the main
speakers; and Juan C. Beni.
The Rev. Raul Sanchez Abe-
lenda, dean of the Faculty of
Philosophy at the University of
Buenos Aires, was also present.
The Jewish community's con-
cern was also expressed in a
meeting by a DAIA delegation
with President Peron, during
which a copy of DAIA's "Peron
and the Jewish People." con-

statements on Jews and Israel,
was presented to his widow.

sparked the latest consternation
among Argentine Jews was
called by the extremist group
to celebrate a new law permit-
ting the return of the remains
of its hero, Juan Manuel Rosas,
from England.

Irole of the Jews in Spain under
Tloslem domination began with
the conquest of the various kingdoms
and principalities of the Iberian Penin-
sula in 711. The Jews aided the con-
querors because the Catholic bishops
and several kings had often made life
for Jews unbearable.
Spanish Catholic religious intolerance
and fanaticism was evident ever since
the downfall of Arianism in the 4th
century. The period from 711 to the
tenth century witnessed a rather be-
nign era for Jews under the Omay-
yads, especially under Abdarrahin I
(756-788) and Abdarrhaham III t912-
961). It was during the reign of the
latter that there rose to power and
eminence Hadai ibn Shaprut.
THIS PERIOD also marks the de-
cline of Babylonian JewTy and the
famous academies, Pumbedita and Su-
tra. Spanish Jewry assumed the center
of Jewish learning and then began the
Golden Age of the Jews.
Ashtour uses such puerile remarks as
"men whispering in remote corners of
the synagogue" and "slain out of hand."
He makes important statements but
supplies no supporting footnotes and,
on the other hand, supplies citations
for insignificant comments. There is
no map of the Iberian Peninsula, a
deplorable oversight. There are maps of
Jcvish quarters but they lack identifi-
cations for numbers underneath the
maps. The material is in the book.
Prudent editing might have separated
he chaff from the wheat.

A Strange Vision: Jews
As Aliens on Ml. Sinai
gANTA CATERINA We reached the top of Jebel Musa, the traditional
Mount of Moses here in the Sinai, after climbing some 2,300 feet of
steep rocky path above the Santa Caterina Monastery. Although we had started
from the monks' fortress before dawn, we met scores of young people, both
Israelis and visiting students, already on their way down the mountainside.
Some were laughing; some showed signs of weariness or boredom. None seemed
particularly moved or inspired by their experience.
We reached the top. On the level area of about 60 square feet there was
an ancient church and a dilapidated mosque, the latter with a worn prayer
rug on the floor. The view out over the rugged Sinai wilderness was breath-
BUT AFTEB all the exertion and all the expectations, the fulfillment was
disappointing. Something was missing. One member of our party took out his
ialil." his large prayer shawl, swathed himself In it, and opened his prayer
took. Perhaps he was experi< ncing somethin ;.
Foi the others, the feeling was no more than that of "mission accom-
plished," alter which it was time to start down again. True, there is no historical
evidence that this is the precise spot where Moses stood when he received the
two tablets of the law, but it has been hallowed by the tradition of many
It is. at the very least, a symbol of one of the great events in the history
of mankind an event in which the Jewish people played the key role.
LATER I spoke to a young novitiate of the Greek Orthodox Church. In his
black cap and gown and black beard he looked no different from the silent
monks of Santa Caterina, but I quickly learned he was 27-year-old Jerry
Kambites, of Montreal, spending a year in lonely communion with God and
Mosis before he resumed his studies at his theological college in Massachusetts.
"Mount Sinai means absolutely nothing to them." he gestured at the scores
of American and Israi li youth playing their mountain-climbing game. "They
have no sense of identification with Moses or with the Law even though it is
their Moses and their Law. Do they have no deep feelings?"
Later I heard the young Greek Christian arguing with the Jews, trying
to "sell" them their own heritage.
LOUIS (iOLDIXG once wrote about his impulsive mania to follow in the
footsteps of Moses the Law-giver. And when he reached the top, after 340
pages of mounting suspense, he experienced a great letdown. "I was on top
of Mount Sinai. It was a topographical lact yet something was missing."
Later, he thought he had found the explanation. "For the Holy Mountain
is a spiritual, not a physical experience. Few men have ever reached the sum-
mit, and few will get there again."
By their thousands, Jews flock to the Western Wall in Jerusalem, and
even the scoffers and unbelievers are vibrant with a sense of their own
place in the chain of Jewish history. Is it true as Golding wrote, that Sinai
was but a way station on the journey to the towers and fields of Zion?
What Power is Like
Behind (he Scenes
pHE RECENT elections in Kngland are particularly interesting from
a Jewish point of view. There were no less than 84 Jewish candi-
dates running for seats in Parliament and no less than 45 Jews held
seats in that body, a very considerable number considering the Jewish
population of F.ngland. In the American Congress, the percentage of
Jews is almost invisible.
You find Jews in America in their fair share in art, music, theater,
medicine, manufacturing but hardly carrying their weight in politics.
YES, THERE is a Kissinger, Secretary of State, but that is an
appointive office. Why are American Jews so shy about running for
It is all the more strange when we are told, for instance, that in
New York at least, and it is probably true elsewhere, the percentage
of those going to the polls is greater among Jews.
Jews are very politics minded. Such men as Baruch, Brandeis,
Sidney Hillman, have been known as advisers to Presidents. But their
activity is behind the scenes always a secondary role.
One cannot think of any Jew who became a national figure like a
La Follctte or a Humphrey, except perhaps Goldwater, and he was
only a half Jew.
SOME YEARS back, there were two fellows, Harry and Eddie,
Jew and non-Jew, in business in Missouri. They had served in the
war together and they became partners in a haberdashery shop. Jews,
of course, had a lot of experience in that business from the time
when Jacob gave his son Joseph that shirt which also preceded a
period of hard times for Jews.
Well, anyway, for a few years, Harry and Kddie did good business,
then came hard times and their business had to fold up.
So Harry entered politics and wound up as President of the
company the U.S.A.
But the thought of running for President never even occurred to
"the Yidisher kopf" of Eddie.
The Jews seem to be lacking in the political phase. Mark Twain
noticed it, and he urged Jews to imitate the Irish, who Mark Twain
noted made themselves from the beginning "a force politically to be
reckoned with."
