Federation Steps Up Campaign
The Jewish Federation of South Broward is spearhead-
ing an all-out communitywide effort to raise funds for this
years CJA-IEF drive," said Herbert D. Katz, Federation
The 1976 campaign has pass-
ed the $2 million mark and
solicitors are working hard to
reach the $3.5-million goal. Un-
der the able leadership of gen-
eral campaign chairman Lewis
E. Cohn, lay leaders have or-
ganized numerous campaign
functions throughout the com-
Campaign workers are active-
ly speaking to as many Jewish
residents as possible, explain-
ing Israel's needs and provid-
ing up-to-date information on
the situation there, and the
community is responding with
remarkably increased contribu-
tions to the intensified fund-
raising drive.
IN ADDITION to providing
aid for critical humanitarian
needs in Israel, campaign dol-
lars are apportioned to local
Jewish agencies to service the
needs of the community. Fed-
eration efforts foster local
health and welfare agencies,
supply counseling and help for
emotionally troubled individuals
and families, help to support
agencies for the care of chil-
dren and the aged, and main-
tain Jewish schools, recreation
centers and summer camps.
Local Jewish agencies bene-
fiting from Federation support

ing for individuals and families,

New Billion Dollar Arms Deal
Seen Pending With Saudi Arabia
Another billion dollar arms deal
between the United States and
Saudi Arabia is in the process
of formalizatlon that will bring
American sales of military
equipment and services to that
oil-rich Arab country to well
over S10 billion, the bulk of it
since the oil embargo three
years ago.
The Pentagon confirmed that
within the "next few days" it
will send to Congress for its
consideration a program calling
for the sale of $1.2 billion in
weapons and military construc-
tion to help Saudi Arabia up-
grade its armed forces.
CONGRESS has 20 days after
receiving the Pentagon's notice
to reject the program in whole
or in part. Previously, during
the current fiscal year, the U.S.
embarked on a SI .8 billion pro-
gram for modernizing the Saud-
ian air force.
This was. on top of.$7.3. bil-
lion in previous programming.
In providing this data, the Pen-
tagon spokesman pointed out to
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency
that the programming began in
1950 and that deliveries through
last June 30 totaled only $965
million. He also emphasized
that 40-45 percent of the pro-
gram is "non-lethal" and con-
stituted training or support
Asked how many Americans
were in Saudi Arabia, the
spokesman said "fewer than
250" military personnel. He said
he could not provide statistics
on U.S. civilians, saying this
was up to the State Department.
THE FACT that deliveries
and services under the pro-
gramming until seven months
ago totaled slightly more than
a tenth of the total program in-
dicates when the majority of
the contracts were let by the

Hebrew University political sci-
entist Shiomo Avineri, one of
Israel's best known academics
and a man with declared dove-
ish leanings, has been chosen
by Foreign Minister Ylgal Al-
lon to be director-general of
the Foreign Ministry.
His appointment Immediately
triggered angry reactions from
Knesset hawks. Likud's Haim
Landau presented a motion de-
ploring the appointment. He de-
manded that the Knesset For-
eign Affairs and Defense Com-
mittee discuss Avineri's apti-
tude before the Cabinet ap-
proves the post.
LABOR DOVES, on the other
hand, welcomed the appoint-
ment. Avineri, a world author-
ity on Hegel and Marx, will
take over in the spring from
Avaraham Kidron, career diplo-
mat, who will now become Am-
bassador to The Hague.
The Foreign Ministry deputy
director-general, Ephraim Ev-
ron, a veteran diplomat who
had been among the aspirants
for the post, will stay on at the
Ministry. Evron met with Allon
and pledged his cooperation
with Avineri. Sources inside the
Ministry said the appointment
which took almost the en-
tire Ministry staff by surprise
had been broadly welcomed.
AVINERI'S appointment was
seen as a novel departure and
it aroused a buzz of interest
and comment in political cir-
cles here. While Labor's young
doveish Knesseter Yossi Sarid
termed the appointment "a re-
freshing change" and presented
an urgent Knesset motion to
this effect. Landau spoke of
"sticking a knife in the heart
of the nation." Landau said Avi-
neri was the "ideologue of the
Lan/iau said Likud would,
therefore, fight the appoint-
ment. Social Welfare Minister
Zevulun Hammer of the Na-
tional Religious Party called the
appointment "an unparalleled
He said the government de-
clared its opposition to a third
state and was now appoint-
ing a director of the foreign
service who favored this solu-
tion. Mapam and other leftist
groups welcomed the appoint-
ment in statements.
AVINERI, 43, is presently
dean of the social sciences fac-
ulty at Hebrew University.
Higher Mathematics Czech Collaborators Fingered
Aids Heart Surgery
JERUSALEM (JTA) A team of advanced
students and Soviet immigrants at the Hebrew Uni-
versity have applied higher mathematics to solve
thorny problems in eye and heart surgery.
According to Prof. Sam Moskovits, head of the
university's Department for Applied Mathematics, the
team has constructed mathematical models tabula-
tions that could result in safer, more effective sur-
ACCORDING TO Prof. Moskovits, in an interview
published in the Jerusalem Post, the team was set up
more than a year ago to help solve problems in in-
dustry. But when Israeli industries showed little in-
terest, the team put its techniques at the disposal of
Hadassah Medical Center physicians in the fields of
cardiology and ophthalmology.
Dr. Juan Zaubderman, chief of Hadassah's Oph-
thalmology Department, told reporters that mathema-
tical tables provided by the university team enabled
him to correct techniques for treating detached retinas
which were previously done by "trial and error."
OTHER TABLES produced by the mathematicians
provided vital help in correcting astigmatism.
The team's current project involves two mathe-
matical models that-would enable bent surgeons to

President of Czechoslovakia,
Dr. Gustav Husak, and per-
sons holding high posts in
the communications media in
that country, have been
identified as active Nazi col-
laborators during World War
Husak, who is First Secre-
tary of the Czechoslovakian
Communist Party, was named
by the Czech -language
monthly "Czeske Slovo," pub-
lished in Munich, as a col-
lector of funds for the Nazi
Hlinka Guard and Hlinka
Youth Organization in Slova-
kia which was governed by
a Nazi puppet regime during
the war.
THE OTHER alleged Nazi
collaborators were identified in
a survey released by the Inter-
national Council of Jews from
Czechoslovakia (ICIC). One of
the most prominent is Jan Ki-

to the Nazi directs* of Karator-

man occupation, according to
the ICJC. Prior to taking his
post at "Rude Pravo" he edited
the Prague periodical "World
of the Soviets."
THE ICJC reported further
that Svatopluk Dolejs, 53, pre-
sently on the Czech Embassy
staff in Cairo and Cairo cor-
respondent of Radio Prague,
was editor of the anti-Semitic
Prague weekly, "Arijsky Boi"
(The Aryan Fight) between
1941-44. During the latter
phases of the Nazi occupation
that publication issued an
"AntiJewish Reader" subtitled
"Handbook on the Jewish Ques-
tion in the Czech Lands."
AFTER the war, Dolejs was
cleared by the Czech State Se-
curity Service and joined the
secret police. In 1*60, he was

Western Protest
Aids Soviet Victim
The Soviet Jewry committee
of the Jewish Federation was
instrumental in contributing to
the iv.ilJ sentence of Alexander
Silnitsky of Krasnodar.
The details of Silnitsky's ar-
rest and imprisonment were re-
leased this week by his parents,
who are in Israel together with
their younger son.
In the summer of 1974 Alexan-
der Silnitsky completed his
fourth year at Krasnodar Poly-
technic, where his father was
a lecturer. At that time his par-
ents were busy with arrange-
ments for emigration. That sum-
mer Alexander was called up
for military training but be re-
fused to go, saying that this
would mean taking an oath and
getting the rank of officer,
which would subsequently de-
lay his emigration.
Alexander was expelled from
the Institute and received his
call-up notice in October. Three
weeks later, while visiting a
friend in Moscow, he was ar-
rested. During the investiga-
tion he cfairaeJ that as a citizen
of Israel, he was not obliged to
serve in the Russian Army.
IDS PARENTS were also in-
terrogated and were threatened
with prosecution for their part
in their son's actions.
On November 11, 1975. Alex-
ander was transfered from Mos-
cow to Krasnodar, where he
was sentenced to two years'
imprisonment. On his lawyer's
advice, no appeal was submitted
because of the chance of the
sentence being changed to three
years, as in the cases of Malkin
and Vinarov.
The Investigator complained
that he had been inundated with
letters from all over the world,
demanding Alexander's release.
But his parents are convinced
that the reaction from the West
contributed to the relatively
mild sentence, and that further
protests might help to get his
sentence further reduced or
quashed. They believe he is
working either as a carpenter
or a prison barber.

VS. Aid to Israel Vnder Cloud
The Senate Foreign Relations
Committee's increase of the
foreign aid package for the
current fiscal year by 25 per-
cent came under a cloud
when the State Department
said that the Administration
is reviewing "the impact" of
the increase.
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey
(D., Minn), announced to
the Senate last week that Sec-
retary of State Henry A. Kis-
singer and Undersecretary of
State for Political Affairs
Joseph J. Sisco had agreed
in his conversations with
them that the aid package
was to be increased by one-
quarter to take into account
the three-month transitional
period of July 1-Sept. 30 be-
tween the end of fiscal 1976
on June 30- to the beginning
of fiscal 1977 Oct. 1. The in-
crease was proposed'by Sen.

Following his retirement from

acrylics as his medium. His

Under the Senate Foreign Re-
lations Committee's authoriza-
tion bill, now before the Senate,
Israel and some 50 other coun-
tries are to receive an addition-
al 25 percent in recommenda-
tions for this fiscal year.
In the case of Israel, this
would mean an increase from
S2.25 billion to $2.81 billion, and
for Egypt" an increase from ap-
proximately $700 million to
$875 million.
Humphrey reported his dis-
cussions with Kissinger and Sis-
co on the Senate floor during
the presentation of the bill.
FUNSETH said Humphrey
had phoned Kissinger and "dis-
cussed technical aspects" of the
aid package; however, he added,
the "Administration has not
completed its review."
Asked if the Administration
has changed its mind and is
now pulling back from its agree-
ment with the Senate commit-
tee's leadership, Funseth said
he was "not aware" of that and
noted that there were "lots of
contacts" that included other
parts of the Administration.
His remarks immediately
raised speculation that the
White House is not in agree-
ment with Kissinger and Sisco
and that President Ford has
suspended, at least temporarily,
Kissinger's authority to handle
the aid package along the lines
of the agreement reported by
Lookstein Calls For
Dialogue with Third World
Rabbi Joseph H. Lookstein,
president of "the Synagogue
Council of America, has called
on Jewish rabbinic and lay or-
ganizations to initiate contacts
with representatives of Third
World countries.
The details of an SCA "Third
World Communications Proj-
ect" were outlined by Moses
Hornstein, of Hollywood, co-
chairman of SCA's National So-
ciety of Fellows, at the group's
recent annual meeting at Tem-
ple Emanu-El.
"The Jewish world is sudden-
ly faced with a tremendous
communications gap: we know
virtually nothing of the world's
emerging forces and they know
and understand little about the
hones and aspirations of the
Jewish community," Hornstein
The Third World cannot be
treated as a monolith or 'writ-
ten off as hopelessly anti-
Semitic, their votes and posi-
tions finally and for all time
predetermined." he continued.
"Seeking dialogue with Third
World nations is not simply a
policy of self-interest politically
it is a continuation of valued
Jewish traditions and an expres-

The Issue Squarely Stated
The charge by some that Tf is Israel that is prevent-
ing a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict was proven
to be wrong by Premier Yitzhak Rabin's visit to Wash-
ington. In his public statements, especially in his ad-
dress to a joint session of Congress, Rabin explained
Israel's position in a clear and forthright manner.
He told Congress that the "driving goal" of Israel's
policy is that "however difficult the road, however hard
the challenge and however complex the process, Israel
will strive with all its being to contribute to the peace
of the world by pressing ahead with its efforts for peace
with the Arab countries."
The Israeli leader soundly stated his government's
stand when he declared "I am ready to meet with any
Arab head of government at any time and at any place
for the purpose of peace talks." He made a telling point
when he noted that when President Anwar Sadat ad-
dressed Congress last October the Egyptian leader said
there was no substitute for person-to-person contacts.
"I wish that he would direct those words to me as well
as to you," Rabin told Congress. "I would then know
that the work of true peacemaking has finally begun."
For as Rabin correctly pointed out the real issue
is not the Palestinians or territory although Israel is
ready to negotiate on both issues for real peace. The
real issue is the refusal of Arab leaders to recognize
the existence of the State of Israel.
Unless the world realizes that Arab refusal to re-
cognize Israel's existence is the crux of the conflict,
the chances of reaching peace are slim.
International Bond Meet
The International Inaugural Conference of the Is-
rael Bond Organization, which will be held here from
Thursday evening, Feb. 26, to Saturday evening, Feb.
28, will serve to remind American Jewry of the central
role it must continue to play in providing Israel with
the economic resources to preserve its freedom and in-
dependence against all threats and all possible attacks.
The conference will hear first-hand reports on Is-
rael from Yigal Allon, Israel's Deputy Prime Minister
and Foreign Minister, and Ambassador Chaim Herzog,
its Permanent Representative to the United Marions.
' So much of the news spotlight has been concen-
trated on Israel's political and military situation that
we have lost sight of the tremendous economic burdens
and hardships facing the people'' of fardel" ,9^ayif n~
'"Despite 'the huge amounts which.4he,U.S. Govern-
ment is expected to provide, Israel's economy will con-
tinue to be in serious difficulty and its citizens will have
to cope with major problems of inflation and the heavi-
est tax burden in the world.
Economic Development Vital
The most pressing and immediate task is to in-
crease the country's exports to narrow the trade gap,
and this requires a massive flow of investment funds.
It is a propitious time, for the Common Market is ready
to admit Israel's industrial goods free of any duty be-
ginning next July.
With 25 years of achievement behind it, having
poured more than $3.2 billion into the development of
every phase of Israel's economy, Israel Bonds have
effectively fulfilled a major responsibility in strength-
ening Israel at every critical turn in its history.
It is all the more important that every member
of the Jewish community enrolled as a Bond buyer this
year as an act of solidarity to counteract the enormous
power and dangers of the total Arab offensive against
Israel and the Jewish people.

11 Pat Moynihan gets to the
U.S. Senate and the odds are
not high against him it will
be not becausa he spol gainst the Arab representatives
and their African allies, but
quite simply because he spoke
out period.
I think we get the Moynihan
political phenomenon all wrong
if we see it as another expres-
sion of pressure-group politics,
with Movnihan wooing the Jew-
ish vote in New York City, and
getting the Catholic vote up-
state bccaus he is Irish, and
losing part of the black vote
becaus- he spoke vigorously
about Gen. Amin and the Organ-
ization for African Unity.
IF THAT'S all there is to it,
then Moynihan's candidacy
would be interesting, but little
more so than that of several
other contenders, like those
two formidable ladies, Bess My-
erson and Bella Abzug.
A New York political pro,
anorymous, is quoted as saying
about Moynihan in the United
Nations that "He not only
waved the flag, he raised it."
Good sentence, sharp insight.
There is a difference between
raising- the flag and wrapping
one's self in it. Moynihan's luck
was that ho was in the right
place at the right time in the
UN ambassadorship when the
coalition of Communist, Arab
and Third-World countries de-
cided to bury Israel and hu-
miliate the United States in the
"Zionism-racism" resolution.
When he got his bulky frame
up and spoke out, the response
from the American people was
WAS IT rhetoric? Yes. There
is nothing wrong with rhetoric
when it dresses up the right
ideas in the right cause. Danil
Webster used rhetoric in his
reply to Robert Hayne, Henry
Clav used rhetoric, and for
a different cause so did John
Calhoun. They were men of in-
tellect, who were grappling
'from one side or another) with
the rising national conscious-
ness of their day.
The Senate was then an as-
sembly in which members were
not ashamed to be literate and
articulate. People thronged the
galleries to hear eloquence and
watch the swordplay of ideas.
But also they felt the surge of
pride in being part of a rising
MOST OF that is gone now.
America gained power, used it
badly at times and has suffered
pangs of self-doubt as a result.
Its world position is under fire.
It has made enemies, especially
on the one issue the Middle
East where it has claimed a
creative mediating and peace-
making role.
Its opponents use the shop-
worn rhetoric of Marxist "anti-
imperialism," and exactly be-
cause of American self-doubts
and American fears of seeming
nationalist or (horrible thought)
anti-Communist, they have had
a field day of it.
MOYNIHAN happened, by
sheer hick, to be in the UN
post at this moment in the cam-
paign of history. But he took
charge of his luck and used it
with a mastery of words and
ideas which the UN post has
not had since Adlai Stcvensoaj

General Chairman, State of Israel Bonds
More and more, events during the past year have
thinned the line of separation that might have existed be-
tween the Jewish- people and the State of Israel. More and
more, world Jewry rather than Israel alone has been made
the target for the hostility and the attacks by the enemies
of the Jewish state.

100-million and wide-rang-
ing economic and political

From Fighter with British

HAIM HERZOG, the man who leads Israels
battle at the UN, has had a very interest-
ing career. He fought alongside of the British
m World War II and was a general in Israel's
war of independence, but he is not a comba-
tive person naturally. On the contrary, it is
generally agreed that he is friendly and a bit
He comes of that kind of stock. His father
was chief Kabbi of Ireland. His father's work
on Jewish law was praised by the late Supreme
Court Justice Cardozo, as one of the best works
n the philosophy of taw he had ever read.
ALSO BEING Chief Rabbi of Ireland, he
was not ..rally something of a fighter. All Irish
are fighters. Chief Rabbi Herzog also possessed
good sense of humor. We recall hearing him
tell an Irish story about a priest who had re-
rhed himself with a bit of stimulant before
aministering last rites to a dying man. "Fa-
jwr, will you please repeat that prayer?" said

"That was all," he said, "the UN had pro-

"Don't worry," replied Mr. Herzog. "I'll
bring you a bottle of Israeli Vodka."
AT THIS, Mr. Malik got rather fresh and
said, "In my view, Scotch can only be made
in Scotland. Pilsener in Czechoslovakia and
Vodka in Russia."
So Israel, according to Mr. Malik, has no
right to make Vodka. It seems as wrong for
Jews to make Vodka as for them to have a lit-
tle state of their own.
But if Mr. Malik was indignant at the
thought of Israel daring to manufacture some
Vodka of its own, he Is apparently not as bad
as some of the other envoys to the UN. He

against Israel and Jews in
general. This offensive, in
the words of Prime Minister
Rabin, must be met by a "to-
tal mobilization" of the en-
tire Jewish world.

manifestations of this offensive
occurred at the United Nations
in the closing weeks of 197S
and in the opening weeks of

basis for peace negotiations.
AT THE Pri^ie Minister's Is-
rael Bond Conference in Jeru-
salem and during his subse-
quent State visit to the United
States, Mr. Rabin emphasized
the importance of Israel Bonds
in providing Israel with the
economic strength to meet the
"threats and dangers of the
very difficult period ahead."
Israel's economy is facing
many tough problems. In 1975
Israel had a back-breaking bal-
ance of payments deficit of close
to $4 billion. The most import-
ant single cause of this deficit
was a defense budget of more
than $3.5 billion of which $2
billion represented defense im-
At the same time, worldwide
inflation caused sharp increases
in the cost of Israel's fuel and
food imports.
TO IMPROVE the country's
economic position, the Govern-
ment has adopted a program of
restraints and budget cuts
which have forced the people
to tiirht*n their belts. Israel's

in unemployment as a result of
cuts in development and con-
struction and the program to
shift manpower to export-pro-
ducing industries.
THE KEY to the success of
Israel's economic recovery lies
in a determined effort to stim-
ulate an immediate rise in pro-
duction for export. This re-
quires more development funds
for the expansion of industrial
plants producing goods for over-
seas markets.
Something happened last year
which mav hold the key to an
entirely new deal for Israel's
economy. Last May, Deputy
Prime Minister and Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon signed an
agreement with the European
Common Market whereby all
tariffs on Israeli manufactured
goods and various food pro-
ducts will be com pete ly remov-
ed bv July, 1977.
AS A result, Israel faces a
decisive challenge to its indus-
try to avail itself of free access
to the markets of Western Eu-
rope nine countries which
have purchased 50 percent of
Israel's total exports in recent
It is important to remember
that a verv substantial portion
of Israel's record-breaking bal-
ance of payments deficit is due
to the enormous sap in trade
between Israel and the Common
Market countries, whose im-
ports from Israel amount to
$500 million to S700 million as
compared with their exports to
Israel of S2 billion.
THE NEW agreement pro-
vides Israel with a historic op-
portunity to close this gap. But
it will require an infusion of in-
vestment funds to enlarge in-
dustrial plants and establish
new factories for the manufac-
ture of Roods for the European
markets waiting to receive them
if they can meet competitive
Electronics, chemicals, sci-
ence-based industries offer the
most promising areas of de-
velopment for export.
In addition to helping to fi-
nance the program for increas-
ing production for export, this
year's Israel Bond campaign
also has the resoonsibility to
promote the solution of Israel's
serious energy problems.
THE RETURN of the Abu
Rudeis oil fields to Egypt de-
prived Israel of the source of
close to 60 percent of its oil
since the Six Day War. Now
Israel must import 93 percent
of the fuel it needs at a cost of
$750 million a year.
This situation has led the Is-
rael Government to take prompt
action to reduce its almost total
dependence on other countries
for energy.
The search for energy will re-
quire an expenditure of $300
million a year for the next ten
years. A very substantial por-
tion of the funds for oil explora-
tion, expansion of electric pow-
er stations, const-uction of nu-
clear power plants, and de-
velopment of solar energy and
hydroelectric power will have
to come from Israel Bonds.

Israel Bonds Opens Inaugural Confab
The promotion of Israel's exports and the development
of its energy resources will receive the highest priority at
the 1976 International Inaugural Conference that opened
on Thursday in Miami to launch "the most crucial cam-
paign in the 25-year history of the Israel Bond program,"
it was announced by Sam Rothberg, general chairman of the
Israel Bond Organization.
"Never before has the launch-
ing of the Bond campaign been
as closelv and directly related
to the pivotal economic issues
confronting Israel as in the
present critical situation." he
declared, adding, "Yet never
before have we sensed the
groundswell of support and
solidarity among, the Jewish
people to strengtnen Israel, not
only to meet its grave problems
bin also to avail itself of new
opportunities for trade with
ence, which is bringing together
some 1,500 Jewish leaders from
the United States and Canada,
will welcome Deputy Prime
Minister and Foreign Minister
Yigal Allon, who is making a
special trip here to deliver the
principal address at the cul-
minating dinner on Saturday
evening, Feb. 28.
Rothberg drew attention to
the fact that the Foreign Minis-
ter had played a key role in
the -consultation leading to the
adoption of a comprehensive
trade agreement between the
European Common Market and
Israel which was signed last
year and which is scheduled to
go into effect next year.
Pointing out that Israel's pro-
ductive capacity must be vastly
expanded this year, Rothberg
said that the Israel Bond cam-
paign must be intensified in or-
der to furnish a major portion
of Israel's current Development
Budget of a billion dollars.
HE WARNED that any short-
fall in the supply of vital de-
velopment funds would hamper
Israel's efforts in narrowing its
huge trade deficit of some $4
billion and would result in in-
creased unemployment.
Rothberg emphasized the sig-
nificant initial response to the
enrollment of members in the
Prime Minister's dub, consist-
ing of men and women who
purchase $25,000 or more in Is-
rael Bonds in 1976.
Ambassador Chaim Herzog,
Israel's permanent representa-
tive to the United Nations, was
the principal speaker at the
Prime Minister's Club-Trustees
of Israel Dinner which opened
the conference on Thursday
evening. Friday was devoted to
a series of campaign sessions.
Referring to the new austerity
measures and the imposition of
record-high taxes under Israel's
current budget, Rothberg said
that the people of Israel are
making every effort and every
sacrifice to overcome the effects
of energy and capital shortages
resulting from the return of the
oil fields at Abu Rudeis and
from the worldwide Arab eco-
nomic offensive.
"SOLIDARITY with Israel
must be expressed in practical
and constructive terms, as well
as in moral and political sup-
port." Rothberg said. "An Israel
Bond by definition means soli-
darity with Israel," he added.
Among the leaders participat-
ing in the Conference are, in
addition to Rothberg, Michael
Arnon, president and chief ex-
ecutive officer of the Israel
Bond Organization; Ira Guilden,
chairman of the board; Julian
B. Venezky, national chairman
for Regions; Mrs. Jan Peercc,
national chairman of the Wom-

Judith Raskin, the beautiful and brilliant soprano
of the Vetropohtan Opera, will present a program of
operatic and Israeli selections at the Inaugural Dinner
of the 1976 International Israel Bond Conference in
Miami Beech on Saturday evening, Feb. 28.
The dinner, which will of-
cially launch the 1976 cam-
paign to strengthen the econ-
omy of Israel through the sale
of State of Israel Bonds, will
have as its guest of honor and
principal speaker Yigal Allon,
Israel's Deputy Prime Minister
and Foreign Minister.
MISS RASKIN, who scor-
ed a phenomenal success in
her debut at the Metropolitan
fourteen years ago, has been
closely identified with the
cause of Israel and has visited
there several times in recent years.
Born and raised in New York City, the noted oper-
atic star attended Evander Childs High School, where
her fatter was chairman of the music department. Her
father, a gifted pianist and amateur composer, tried to
dissuade her from a singing career by introducing her
to the violin. Much to her chagrin, she showed promise
of becoming a violin virtuoso.
But she persevered in her original ambition and
her vocal talent was discovered by her music teacher
at Smith College.
HER METEORIC rise in the concert and operatic
field has made her a prima donna, but she believes
that a prima donna need not be temperamental. She
also represents the rare example af a Metropolitan star
who is completely American-trained. And although she
sings in flawless German, French and Kalian, she feels
very strongly that operas should be sung in English,
explaining, "Opera is theatre, it is drama and it should
be understood on all levels."
But she loves to sing in Hebrew and hers is not
only flawless but beautiful.

? Ask Abe ?
What daas the word Mizpah
mean? tffcat is the ehtniftcanee
of this word-engraved on a coin
split in half to be worn on
chains around the necks of two
Milton and Rose Click
Mizpah or Mizpeh is a He-
brew word meaning lookout
point, watchtower or observa-
tory. It is the name of several
places mentioned in the Bible.
The coin which you mention
and which I saw is called Miz-
pah Coin. It is split in the mid-
dle and two people can wear the
coin, each wearing one half.
In addition to the words Miz-
pah Coin, it carries a quotation
in English translated from the
Hebrew from the Book of Gene-
sis (the First Book of Moses,
the Torah). The quotation is
from the narrative about Jacob
and Laban. After working for
Laban twenty years. Jacob pre-
pared to return to his home. He
reouested permission from La-
ban to take his wives, their chil-
dren and all material posses-
According to a commentary
on this passage of the Torah,
the legal category of marriage
at that time, was that If a hus-
band lived with his wife's fami-
ly, he could not take his wife,
her children, or her possessions
with him if he desired to re-
turn to his family. Everything
belonged to the wife's family.
Laban. however, allowed Ja-
cob to take with him his wives,
their children and all material
belongings. In order that God
be a witness to the pact, Jacob
gathered stones and set them
up as a pillar to mark the place,
and they partook of a meal to-
gether at the mound. The meal
was another custom of that pe-
riod in a covenant between
"And Laban declared. This
mound is a witness between you
and me this dav.' That is why
it was named Gal-ed; also Miz-
pah. because he said. 'May the
Lord watch between you and
me. when we are out of sight of
each other' (Genesis 31:48. 49.
Emphasis mine, to indicate that
part of the above quotation in-
scribed on the Mizoah Coin).
The key Hebrew word in the
quotation, in addition to Miz-
peh. is "Yitzef," translated as
'It is not considered a bene-
but a warning. Let God
watch over as Chat we may not
break eur Covenant." (The To-
rah, A Modern Commentary by
W. Gunther Plaut. UAHC. pt
319.) Fl
The best-known place with
the name Mizpah was in the
territory of Benjamin in the
land of Israel. "It was regarded
as sacred from the beginning of
the period of the Judges; thus,
Samuel gathered there the Is-
raelites for prayer before they
issued forth against the Phlis-
tines, and after their victory,
Samuel visited Mizpah annual-
ly to judge the people the
place has been identified with
Nebi Samwil, four and a half
miles northwest of Jerusalem,
but most scholars now place it
as Tel en-Nasbe. seven and a
half miles north of the city."
(Th- Standard Jewish Encyclo-
pedia, p. 1331.)
Thi*re are several other places
mentioned with the word Miz-
pah or Mizneh in its name. In
1968 we visited a new develop-
ment town in Israel, fifty-four
miles south of Beersheba on the
way to Eilat, called Mizpeh Ra-
mon. It was founded in 1954.
I have not been able to deter-
mine who designed the coin or
why the auotation from Genesis
was selected.
If anyone has any further in-
formation about the origin of
this coin and its designer I
would appreciate hearing from
yon. I win share it with our
readers in a future column.

Question: What is the ori-
gin and moaning of the Jewish
belief in the Messiah?
Answer: Tie word "Ma-
shiach" means the "anointed
on." In the Bible the term
originally was used to apply to
a person whose appointment to
high office is sanctioned by the
Almighty and who thus is
"anointed" according to the Al-
mighty's desi?ntien to carry
out the terms of the office as
ordained by the Almighty. This

11 '.mill .i.r ,ik
referred to a llitjh Priest or a
'" ** ->-**."- l^orflt'i*-" of
the Bible the term waa also ap-
plied to a eeraon from whom
the Almighty designated a epe-
cial purpose in history. For ex-
ample Cvrus, the Persian king
who granted permission for the
Jewa to rebuild the Holy Tem-
f-^de,'alia ferred .who soch
ieroiia>l *y (toaiah 45:1).
Thus. some of the prophets
sno^e of the a>h>erance of the
people of Israel to come as be-
] executed through a des-
cendant of the House of Oavid
who was anoiatad for kingship.
Generally sneaking, the Al-
aa'ghtv 'armointi" certain cha-
*fc-^-.>c fi?>.ire to cany out
I "sr.0
his plans in the human world
who are "anointed" as a symbol
of thir designation for that
special purpofB. The d?struc-
tisnrcitha te*wr?eomed to
have suspended the evisi nee
of euch charismatic fiamres.
The eschatological era. wh-ji
t^e to-Til? is evnected to De
restored and universal truth
and justice will prevail, is tra-
ditionally expected to see the
reappearance of such a figure.
It k to be claarlv understood
t^at. accondmu to Jewish tradi-
tion, even though this person.
the king, to be known as the
Messiah, will lead-the people to
and in the apt >f deliverance,
the ultimate aedeemer is the

There an some modern writ-
ers who attempt to distinguish

s^npl Messiah in the form of a
human being and the concept
f what has come to be known
as the -M-ssianic age. Indeed

High school education is free
in America. In Israel free edu-
cation ends with the ninth
grade. This means that one in
three Israeli youths does not
have the opportunity to attend
high school.
The ZOA Youth of Israel
Scholarship Fund is a bold and
farsighted program to help ease
this growing crisis in Israeli
education. Through the Kfar
Silver Technical and Agricul-
tural High Schools near Ash-
kelon. the Zionist Organization
of America educates Israel's
future leadership.

of almost $4 billion and the
critical need to develop energy
resources as two of Israel's
chief economic problems this
year, Sam Rothberg, general
chairman of Israel Bonds, said
that the conference can have
far-reaching results in helping
lo meet these problems by
stimulating intensive efforts for
a wider sale of Israel Bonds in
every segment of the campaign.
Special sessions of the con-
firence will be devoted to spe-
cific campaign activities con-
centrating on increased sales of

Jewish community but also to
the general community includ-
ing banks, insurance companies,
libor unions, employee benefit
funds, building funds, govern-
mental funds, community funds
and credit unions, as well as
Keogh Plan portfolios.
In recognition of the impres-
sive role of the Prime Minis-
ter's Club in providing pace-
--'tting support in the moment-
ous task of strengthening Is-
i lei's economic front during one
of the most crucial periods in
i s history, the opening session
of the conference will be the

Membership in "Shomrei Is-
rael," which began as a spon-
taneous mass demonstration of
economic support for Israel
during and after the Yom Kip-
pur War through the purchase
of a minimum of $1,000 in Is-
rael Bonds, has grown since
then as a result of the Inspiring
participation of synagogues of
all three denominations in the
Bond campaign.
Over 1,000 synagogues in the
United States and Canada con-
ducted special efforts for Israel
Bonds during the High Holiday
services last year, while many
of them and others also sched-
uled congregational Bond din-
ners during the year.
OTHER sessions of the con-
ference will deal with ways to
broaden the participation of the
business community through
additional corporate dinners
which have produced large-
scale Israel Bond funds for the
country's economic develop-
ment. Sales to professional
groups will also be stressed.
A comprehensive program
highlighting the rapidly rising
level of participation by women
in the campaign will be outlined

The role of major Jewish or-
ganizations as a source of sub-
stantial strength in the Israel
Bond program since its incep-
tion 25 years ago is expected
to have an even greater impact
this year, when Israel's eco-
nomic needs far exceed those of
the past, according to Michael
Arnon, president.
AMONG the leaders who will
participate in the Miami con-
ference are. in addition to
Rothberg and Arnon, Ira Gull-
den, chairman of the Board of
Israel Bonds; Allan Bronfman,
president of Israel Bonds in
Canada; George A. Cohon, Ca-
nadian chairman; Julian B. Ve-
nezky, national chairman for
Regions; Mrs. Jan Peerce, na-
tional chairman of the Women's
Division: and Leonard Goldfine
and Rabbi Leon Kronish, na-
tion campaign cochairmen.
Editor, Jewish Floridian-Shofar:
Those who watched the tele-
vision program featuring Arafat
on Sunday, Feb. 8, could see
that he did not answer any di-
rect questions asked of him as
l.-ader of the PLO. He tried, un-
successfully, four times, with
the help of many Arab govern-
ments and the support of the
Soviet Union with ammunition
and large sums of capital, to
destroy Israel.
The true aim of the Com-
munist-Arab bloc is not only
to eliminate Israel from the
Middle East but to weaken the
influence of the American gov-
ernment in that region be-
fore in Asia, now in Africa.
To add a new Palestinian
state to Jordan, Lebanon and
Israel would not be practical.
Economically and politically it
would create a Soviet Union
base for manipulation and h-
rassments to Israel, Jordan and
Egypt too. After these four
countries are sevietized by Ara-
fat and his PLO, next would
be a new target the rich
Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq and the
rest of the small but rich-in-oil
The UN as a body is sub-
servient to Arab-Communist po-
litical bloc. First the Soviets
failed in Egypt, after four wars,
then they shipped millions of
planes and tanks to Syria and
failed there too. Now the Rus-
sians are shipping millions of
dollars' worth of ammunition
and grain, bought from the
United States, to Syria. Iraq and
Arafat camps. Aside from all
this, they are also sending large
sums of capital. The Syrians
have so many of the latest
planes and tanks that they can
supply other smaller countries
with everything.
There is no doubt that the
only aim of the PLO is to de-
stroy and eliminate Israel, as
per their charter in 1964. The
farce of the so-called secular
state you can see now how
it works in Lebanon. As of this
week Lebanon is a Muslim State.
The PLO is in full command of
all Lebanon.
In 1964 the PLO adopted its
charter, calling for the libera-
tion of Palestine from the Jews.
But in 1964 Israel did not oc-
cupy even one square inch of
the West Bank or the Gaza
Strip. So you can see that the
only purpose for the existence
of the PLO is to destroy and
eliminate Israel, to murder King
Hussein, take over Lebanon,
Iraq, Iran. Saudi Arabia. Syria
and then Egypt, as well as all
other rich-in-oil smaller coun-
To help sovietize the Middle
East, there is only Mr. Arafat
with the help of the Arab-Mus-
lim rich countries and the weak-
njssjs of the European coun-
tries who stayed away and did
not assist the United States in
fighting the embargo on oil in
1973. It is now time to tell Eu-
ropean governments that Amer-
ica will not fight their battles.
Either they fight with us or they
will stand by themselves in bat-
tlefields when the time will
come. Cooperate with the Free
World or else.
If the Arabs really wish peace
with Israel, let them begin to
cooperate with Israel no".
help Arafat kill innocent chil-
dren, women and students. Let
them exchange students for
schooling, fust as they have
done with Egypt. Let them see
how the Arab-Israeli citizens
live in peace, harmony and
prosperity in Israel.
Israel is prepared to negotiate
without prior conditions for
peace, or for non-aggression
pact or non-belligerent pact or
any agreement that will bring
an understanding for present
and future peace to come.

AND SO, I insist a great ora-
tor, with the ear of a poet, is
needed. An orator who will give
us cause to believe that the
complaints we suffer at the
hands of an invisible govern-
ment made drunk by the arro-
gance of its usurped powers
may soon be assuaged

"At least," I reply, thinking
that all we have now, all we've
had for more than a decade,
is the croaking of political
hacks, tne caterwauling of ex-
pediency, the riding crop of
would-be dictators.
THE SENATOR smiles some-
what indulgently. He has been
in office something like a year
now, but it has been a long
year, a year filled with growing
savvy. He treats the amateur
seated opposite him gently.
Just how savvy he has grown
emerges in the admirable pow-
er of his discourse on Amer-
ican and Israeli foreign poli.y
the Middle East and the per-
mutations there of peace.
Sen. Stone speaks of these
thin;s pas .i.matjly and knov.1-

ways in search of solutions, not
just plain palaver) is both
breathtaking and frightening.

million Arms Deal for Saudis
Continued tram Page 1
IU S government.
I According to usually reliable
IUS official sources, about $900
million of the latest deal will be
for military contrasts, includ-
ing a major naval facility.
The remaininf $300 million
will be in hardware that in-
cludes M-60 tanks, armored
personnel carriers, "Dragon"
lanti-'ank missiles- that can be
[carried by a soldier, and "Mav-
lerick" air-to-ground missiles.
IN ADDITION to seeking to
minimize the deals with Saudi
Arabia by referring to the 25-
year reread in contracting, the
non-lethal" aspects and low
rate of deliveries Pentagon
sources took pains to inform
Ijome media here that the U.S.
supplied the M-60 tanks to Is-
rael for several years and the
lame kind of air-to-ground mis-
siles to Isj-ael in the Yom Kip-
pur War.
The "Mavericks'* have a tele-
vision camera in their noses and
are guided to their targets from
a mother plane with a TV
screen. The sources pointed out
that the Saudians sought the

With the Senate in recess this
week, no direct comments were
immediately available from its
members, but the deal is ex-
pected to bring strong protest
from pro-Israeli legislators and
it may be blocked.
A move bv the Administration
to sll 14 "Hawk" missile sys-
tems to Jordan last summer ran
into heavy weather at the Capi-
tol. Ultimately the number of
missiles was left intact bat the
language in the contract was
altered to restrict their use. The
Israelis had not been told in
advance, it was said, about this
new program with Saudi Arabia.
They had been informed
about the U.S. contemplated
sale of six C-130 military trans-
port rlanes and other military
equipment to Egypt. This pro-
gram has still to go before Con-
UNDER THE Foreign Mili-
tary Sales Program, the Penta-
gon is a middle man between
the foreign purchaser and the
American manufacturers. The
Pentagon contracts directly with
manufacturers and the foreign
purchasers reimburse the Pen-
tagon, paying a commission in
addition to the sales price.

Even Conventional Arms to Israel Delayed
Army and security circles
have expressed deep disap-
pointment over delays in the
delivery of certain types of
American military equipment
which Israel's armed forces
had hoped to be able to in-
tegrate into field units this
According to a new time-
table said to have been
agreed to by Premier Yitzhak
Rabin in his talks with U.S.
leaders in Washington last
month, items promised Is-
Jewish Woman Named Mayor
DALLAS (JTA) Mrs. Adlene Harrison became
the first Jewish woman mayor of a metropolitan city
last week when her fellow members of the City Council
elected her as Mayor Pro-Tern after Mayor Wes Wise
resigned to run for a congressional seat. Mrs. Harrison
is both the first Jew and the first woman to serve as
Mayor of Dallas, the eighth largest city in the nation.
rael in 1975 and scheduled
for delivery this year will
only reach Israel over the
next two years, some of them
not before 1978.
THE SECURITY circles are
especially miffed because the
items in question are all con-
ventional equipment, not sophis-
ticated or secret weapons which
require approval of the U.S. Na-
tional Security Council.
In fact, the circles noted,
large quantities of these items
have been provided to Israel in
the past, and the delayed de-
liveries now will force the army
to significantly change its own
The apparent paring down of
pressure from the U.S. was at-
tacked by Asher Ben Nathan,
polirical advisor to Defense
Minister Shimon Peres.
Addressing the Engineers Club
here. Ben Nathan said Israel
had a long way to go to reach
even a ratio of 1-3 with the
Arab states in numbers of anti-
aircraft tanks.
HE SAID tr.e ratio was also
very high In the Arabs' favor
with regard to other weapons
such as missiles. He said he
was concerned that Israelis who
visited the VS. apoarently
including Premier Yitzhak Ra-
bin were, according to Ben
Nathan, bending over backwards
tn !nfv ? A"irican conten-
tion that Israel really do
need all the weapons it
ing for.
Ben Nathan said that
the Arabs are rapidly j
ir.g their arsenals. Israel 1
expected to apologize fa
pleting the American
in the Yom Kippur War'
HE SAID the current
tion revealed the West's
ity to keep pace with
arms production.
The Arabs are spendid
billion for arms at pr
which only Si billion
from the West, he said.
Ben Nathan defended
weapons purchase list h
it was the duty of the
forces to forecast what]
enemies are likely to put
field in the next war
pa** for It.
"I was born 28 years ago."
Because Israel is such a young country,
we tend to think of all her people as being
young and strong. And fully able to take
care of themselves.
Not quite so.
Many of Israel's people are older than
Auschwitz and Buchenwald. Many of them
died emotionally and spiritualty as they
personally suffered through the most
horrible years in all the history of man.
And yet, with the birth of Israel, many
of them were born again.
But now they face new dangers. The
dangers of poverty and hunger and neglect
Because of debts from past wars and
the enormous costs of current defense
responsibilities, the people of Israel are the
most heavily taxed in the world. And so they
must look to us in America to provide the
economic assistance and social services so
many of her aged require. And deserve.

help these elderly people in Israel, they will
surely suffer greatly.
But then, many of them already know
more about human suffering than any of us
can even imagine.
