Israel Unveils New Jet, Says
People to Meet Half of Needs
By YITZHAK SHARG1L
TEL AVIV (JTA) Defense Minist er Shimon Peres said here that Israel was
prepared to produce 50 percent of its wea pons needs in the event that American mili-
tary aid was cut back. He also said that Is rael was totally justified in rejecting pres-
sures to accept Egyptian demands in the re cent bilateral talks conducted by Secretary
of State Henry A. Kissinger because guara ntees are proving worthless as evidenced by
the present situation in Indo-China.
HE SAID, however, that he
found it very hard to imagine
that the United States would re-
treat into isolationism because
the vacuum would be filled by
the Soviet Union.
He acknowledged that U.S.-
Israeli relations were passing
through a crisis period since the
failure of Kissingers latest Mid-
east mission but expressed con-
fidence that the crisis was a

our (military) purchasing rela-

Fisher, who left at the week-

for a resumption of Geneva.
These sources told the JTA
that Javits believes the basis of
sympathy for Israel within the
Congress is still sound, but the
Senator said he is concerned by
the atmosphere of financial par-

way to a more balanced reaction.

The Ulpan methodology, which
concentrates on intensive involve-
ment in speaking and hearing the
Hebrew language, evolved out of
the approaches used in the
United States during World War
II to train servicemen to become
familiar with foreign languages

When the State of Israel faced
the problem of absorbing tens
of thousands of immigrants speak-
ing many different languages, it

The Jewish Floridian and Shofar of Hollywood
Friday, April 25, 1975
Israel began the celebration of her 27th anniver-
sary of independence last week on the eve of Iyar 5.
This is a time beset by fateful questions for Jews
both in Israel and abroad. It is not hard to sense that
the primary spirit is less optimistic than cautious, al-
though, as Hans Habe points out in his essay in The
Jewish Floridan Anniversary Supplement (see Sec. C),
we agree that it is time for all of us to return to the
mood before the Yom Kippur War.
This does not mean, whether they were right or
wrong, cockiness and arrogance, as the Arabs came to
see the predominant quality in the Israelis before the
Rather it means a certainty of purpose and of di-
rection that seems to have slipped from our hands dur-
ing the last year and a half at least, in any case,
since Israel's 25th anniversary.
"We must wonder at the strange ways of our peo-
ple's history and their capacity to make suffering into
the seed of survival," President Ephraim Katzir noted
on the eve of the 27th anniversary.
The endangered little community of 1948 has be-
come a nation of close to three million persons.
Its agriculture and industry are remarkably devel-
oped. Its capacity to build and to defend itself in the
face of fierce onslaughts of enemies repulsed again and
again all these are qualities that should leave Israelis
and their Jewish brethren abroad far from dispirited,
as they seem to have become.
To see ourselves clearly now, we need in President
Katzir's view, the perspective not only of 27 years, but
of the many centuries of pain and sacrifice, faith and
vision that led to the emergence of the Jewish State in
Are There Any Questions?
The latest news about the return of the bodies of
Israeli soldiers carries with it the explanation, if there
needs to be an explanation, of why Israel wants some
guarantees for all the concessions she, as winner, is
being asked to make.
The return of bodies was one of the major items on
the agenda at Km. 101. Israel had just turned the war
around and surrounded Egypt's Third Army.
The U.S., in conjunction with her criminal partner
in detente, the Soviet Union, had just demanded that
the surrounded Egyptian army be permitted to go free
with no concessions whatsoever from the Egyptian
masterminds of the war they launched and lost.
To forestall the possibility of yet another loss of
face by the Egyptians, Israel acceded. Within days,
Egypt rewrote the history of the Yom Kippur War, star-
ring herself in the role of winner.
Also within days, she flouted her agreements on
the return of bodies an item Cairo knows is emo-
tion-laden for the Israelis.
Nothing has happened since those days nothing
until the other day, when Egypt finally shipped back
some Israeli bodies, but only on condition that they be
traded for convicted Arab terrorists now in Israeli
Any questions, State Department, et al., as to why
Israel places so little faith in Arab promises and even
less in the mere Arab "good intentions?"

with letters, largely angry' letters,

EVEN NOW that so much time
has elapsed, and the flow of read-

manages to surface filled with
the kind of vituperation charac-

From the beginning, the most

It was simply thisthat San-

punished with an order of zeal

against any of the criminal ac-

criminal or alleged criminal; that
the $867,750 Bronstein stole was
a childish prank compared to the
prize the Watergate crowd tried

him. At the outset, he dismisses
my Watergate comparisons as

I am sorry to have to burst the
bubble of such monumental self-
importance. But the fact is that,
in writing the column in ques-

one single time, except when it
came time to take notice of th.

? Ask Abe ?
by ABE HALPERN
QUESTION: Who is the au-
thor of the Zohar?
SAMUEL M. ADLER
ANSWER: Zohar is a Hebrew
word meaning splendor, some-
times translated as brightness.
It is a central work in the
literature of Kabbalah, Jewish
mysticism. In Hebrew this work
is sometimes referred to as Seier
Ha'Zohar (Book of the Zohar)
or Sefer Zohar Torah (Book of
Splendor of the Torah).
Tradition attributes its au-
thorship to the Palestinian Tan-
na (teacher-sage) of the Tal-
mudic era, Rabbi Simeon Bar
Rabbi Simeon Bar Yohai of
the mid second century of the
common era was a pupil of Aki-
va, and when Akiva was impris-
oned for teaching Torah in pub-
lic, Rabbi Simeon continued to
study under and to attend him.
Later Rabbi Simeon himself
was sentenced to death. He and
his son Eleazar were compelled
to flee. They concealed them-
selves in a cave for twelve to
thirteen years and were pre-
served by a miracle until the
death decree was annulled.
Many legends were woven
around this period. It is believed
that during this time he de-
veloped the ideas embodied in
In my possession I have a set
of the Zohar Commentary in
five volumes, one each for the
Five Books of Moses. Published
in New York in 1926, it is a
Hebrew translation from the
language of the Zohar, which is
Aramaic. The Aramaic and He-
brew are printed side by side.
The Hebrew translation is by
Rabbi Yode! Rosenberg. The
title inscription in every volume
reads in Hebrew "Sefer Zohar
Torah which is a commentary of
the Holy Zohar on the Torah by
Tanna, Rabbi Simeon Bar Yo-
The Encyclopaedia Judaica,
Volume 16, p. 1209, has the fol-
"According to the deaf testi-
mony of Isaac B. Samuel of
Acre, who assembled the con-
tradictory information concern-
ing the appearance and nature
of the Zohar in the early years
of the 14th century, the book
was published, part by part, not
all at once, by the Spanish kab-
balist, Moses b. Shem Tov de
Leon, who died in 1305, after he
had met Isaac of Acre. This kab-
balist wrote many books in He-
brew bearing his name, from
1286 till after 1293. He was
connected with several kabbal-
ists of his time, including Todros
Abulafia and his son Joseph in
Toledo, one of the leaders of
Castilian Jewry, who supported
Moses de Leon."
Moses ben Siiem Tov de Leon
(1240-1305 c.e.) was apparently
born in Leon near Castile. He
is known to have writen and
published many sections of the
book which is part of the des-
ignation of the works of the
While authorities agree that
he published and edited many
books considered to be the main
substance of the Zohar, part of
his writings are in Aramaic.
Some scholars hesitate in
choosing between Eleazer ben
Hyr*anus and Rabbi Simeon Bar
Yohai as the heio of the con-
struction of the published works
of the 12th and 13th centuries
on the subject of the Zohar.
Most scholars agree that in
the works of Moses de Leon
there are references to other
works which he identifies as fol-
lows. "It is expounded in the in-
ner Midrashim," or "I have seen
a profound matter in the writ-
ings of the ancients," and "I saw
in the Yerushalmi." (Several
quotations from the Zohar ap-
peared under the title Yeru-
shalmi, meaning the Jerusalem
Quotations like these abound
in his writings. Some of them
are present in the Aramaic ver-
sion of the Zohar.
Some modern scholars at-
tribute the authorship of the
Zohar to Moses de Leon himself.

National Jewish Concern
By RABBI SOL LANDAU, Beth David Congregation
To strengthen American Jewry requires democratization of its
Until the advent of the French Revolution, the Jew was ex-
cluded from the general community, socially and religio-culturally.
He was compelled to organize his own community and was depend-
ent on it for his basic needs in education, security, health and welfare.
, EMANCIPATION brought to the Jew the opportunity to be part
of the general body politic, and minimal contact with fellow-Jews.
The United States in addition, developed the separation of church
and state into the very fabrc of its Constitution.
The American Jewish community, consequently, is a voluntary
community with limited involvement for the average American Jew,
while it nominally represents him in the political, social and re-
ligious arena of the country.
Above all. thus far no genuine instrument has been developed
to have a leadership for American Jewry which will have been di-
rectly elected by the leaders.
TO A LARGE EXTENT, American Jewish leadership is com-
posed of selected people, many of them distinguished men and
women, but not brought to the helm through the democratic process.
To give the American Jew the social structure necessary to have
in fact a democratic community, he must plan a system of elections
which will go to the very grass-roots of his people. The call for the
organic community issued some three decades ago by M. M. Kaplan
seenw more plausible and more urgent today.
In the past, the Shekel-voting procedure of the Zionist movement
and the early experiments in the history of the American Jewish
Congress were attempts of democratization. The six million in the
American Jewish community will be able to restructure its organiza-
tion and involve its people to the fullest in this manner and the most
representative and dynamic leadership will emerge from it.

course of a quarrel as a result of
kicking or striking a woman. A
fine was imposed on the perpe-
During the Talmudic period,
however, the Encyclopaedia Ju-
daica reports, a basic Rabbinic
statement appears in the Mishnah
(Oholot 7:6) which contains the
fundamental regulations regard-
ing abortion regulations which
have been kept alive throughout
the centuries. The statement
reads as follows: "If a woman
travails to give birth and it is
feared she may die, one may
sever the fetus from her womb
and extract it. member by mem-
ber, for the mothers life has
precedence over the child's life.
But if the greater part of the
child has already emerged into
the world (from the womb),
either its head only, or its great-
er part, it may not be touched
even if it endangers the mother's
life because one may not re-
ject one life to save another."
What this passage means, is
clear: while the child is still in
the mother's womb, it is not a
1 person in Jewish law, and its -
destruction to save the mother's >
life does not mean murdering one
' person ta save another; but once t
the greater part of the child has *
' emerged from the womb and into [
' the world, it becomes a person in i
Jewish law, and it cannot be ,
destroyed to save the mother's
With the reservation contained
in the above quotation, all the
codifiers agree that an abortion
when the mother's life is in
danger, is not only permitted by
Judaism but it must be perform-
ed. Many authorities have gone
farther than this, by permitting,
e.g.. an abortion "if intended to
serve the mother's needs .
even if not vital." At the time
of the Holocaust, in the Kovno
ghetto, the Germans decreed that
every pregnant Jewish woman
shall be killed together with her
fetus. As a result, in 1942 Rabbi
Ephralm Oshry decided that an
abortion was permissible in order
to save a woman from the con-
sequences of the decree.
Many codifiers permit abortion
when the Wrth of the child
would cause tne mother to lose
her sanity, or if the doctors de-
clare that the child would be
born seriously deformed, or if
the pregnancy is the result of
rape. An important factor in de-
ciding whether or not an abor-
tion should be permitted is the
stage of the pregnancy: the shor-
ter the period, the stronger are
the considerations in favor of
It must be stressed, however,
that neither economic reasons
nor the fact that the child is
simply not wanted, are sufficient
for even considering an abortion
under Jewish law, the authorita-
tive Encyclopaedia Judaica says.

By RABBI SHELDON J. HARR
Some shocking statistics have
been gathered recently by Dr.
David Bortnick, a member of our
community who is an instructor
at Palm Beach Junior College.
In his Ph.D. dissertation,
(found elsewhere in this issue).
Dr. Bortnick, by surveying col-
lege students in the State of
Florida, has discovered that fully
60 per cent of all Jewish college
students are willing to intermar-
ry, and further, that 22 per cent
of those students surveyed are
unconcerned wnether or not
their children are raised within
the fold of Judaism!
In addition, his investigations
have uncovered another signifi-
cant finding which has. in fact,
been confirmed in other places
within the realm of the academic
world and within the world of
experiencenamely that the atti-
tude of the family, particularly
the parents, significantly affects
the attitude of the children.
AND HERE is the key to Jew-
ish survival in the future! Is it
beneficial to "shrei gevalt" when
we find that over 30 per cent of
all Jewish marriages today are
mixed marriages? Do we simply
pour more money into campus
programs to give the students a
greater sense of Jewish identity
during their college years?
Do we blame the institutions
of Jewish lifeparticularly the
Jewish educational institutions
for failing to teach our children
what is expected of them and
what is not expected of them?
Of course not.
We must attack this dilemma
of inter-marriage (and thus a loss
to the Jewish people) in a radi-
cal fashion. By radical, I mean
an attack at the root causes of
the problem; namely, we must
focus on the attitudes expressed
and implied in the Jewish home.
The responsibility for the fu-
ture direction of Judaism does
not, in the final analysis, rest
with the tempes, synagogues.

THE FUTURE of Jewish life
RABBI SHELDON J. HARR
in this free and emancipated sit-
uation in which we Jews find
ourselves today rests squarely on
the response of Jewish parents
and how seriously they, the par-
ents of our Jewish children, take
If the attitude is one of hos-
tility to the institutional life of
Jewry, then the result will be a
dropping out from Jewish life by
If the attitude is one of
"laissez-faire,'' again the result
will more likely than not be an
ultimate loss of the children of
that family to Jewish life.
But if the attitudesexpressed,
implied and acted unon in con-
crete waysare positive and re-
inforce the lessons and ideals of
Jewish life religiously, culturally,
socially, and philanthroDically,
then we know that at least there

This, of course, is impossible.
We can say. however, that the

A young adult's attitude is
usually shaped well before he or
she leaves for college. Parent*
ought not give up their respon-
sibilities before it is too late.
Why is it customary for
children to play with bows
and arrows on this festival?
Some see this as an emulation
of the heroic students of Rabbi
Akiba or the revolutionaries of
Bar Kochba who were encourag-
ed by Rabbi Akiba. Others read
into this the futility of armed
strength against what was de-
creed by the Almighty to show
that against His decree we are
all like children with bow and
Others claim that the bow is
somewhat significant because it
reminds us of what the mystics
claim: that the rainbow was not
seen in the lifetime of Rabbi
Simeon Bar Yochai and appeared
only after his death again. This
was because he was such a saint-
ly person that the rainbow which
svmbolized God's promise not to
bring a flood of destruction te
the world, was unnecessary aa
long as such a person lived.
After his demise, the symbol
was necessary again to give the
people confidence, which they
may temporarily have lost at ob-
serving his death.
