growing infusion of Arab
petrodollars into American
Universities is posing a
threat to academic freedom
and integrity, according to
a comprehensive report by
the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith.
The report notes that more
than a dozen schools have been
offered large sums of money in
the form of gifts, grants and
lucrative contracts from Arab
governments and other Arab-ori-
ented sources. "While not all ac-
cepted," said Kennneth J.
Bialkin, chairman of ADL's
national executive committee,
"the experience of some which
did, raises at the very least,
serious questions concerning
issues of curriculum control,
power in student or faculty
selection and possible dis-
criminatory practices against
THE REPORT says that
Georgetown University, the Uni-
versity of Southern California,
Duke, New York University and
Syracuse University are among
those which have accepted
monies or contracts. Among
schools which have not, or which
withdrew from negotiations, are
Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, the University of
Pennsylvania, and a "Midwest
University consortium for
International Activities"
made up of Michigan State
University and the Universities
of Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin
and Minnesota.
The Consortium cancelled a
contract with Saudi Arabia
because a Jewish professor was
refused entry to that nation; a
deal between MIT and the Saudis
also collapsed over the issue of
religious discrimination. The
University of Pennsylvania falls
into both categories having
accepted a (100,000 grant from
the Sultan of Oman to promote
Arab and Islamic studies but
turned down a lucrative proposal
from Libya, which has supported
international terrorists, for the
development of a curriculum for
teaching Middle Eastern history
and culture in American Sec-
ondary schools.
The university said it doubted
"the wisdom of accepting foreign
funding for the development of
curricula studying the history
and culture of the area from
which the funds are coming."
BIALKIN said that "willing-
ness to tap the Arabs' growing
petro-dollar reserves is un-
derstandable at a time when so
many American universities are
experiencing acute financial
problems due to rising costs and
dwindling support from founda-
tions, government and alumni."

One reason why
more Jewish families
select Riverside.
More Jewish personnel
At Riverside, we have the largest staff of
Jewish personnel in Florida. It's been that way since 1935,
and it's one of the major reasons why more Jewish families
select Riverside than any other funeral director.
At Riverside, families find total dedication to
Jewish tradition. A genuine feeling of understanding.
Economical assistance in arranging funeral services
between Florida and New York or anywhere else in the
world. And real concern for each family's needs and
wishes, regardless of financial circumstance.
Today, if Riverside service is becoming the
standard by which people are comparing all the others,
there is a reason. Riverside people. They know Jewish
tradition. And they honor it.

The Chances of Peace
The passing of the Abortion Law amendment,
which gives Prime Minister Begin's coalition a
breather in terms of its slender thread of survival,
casts some unhappy light on the Israel-Egypt peace
In itself, this may not be so. Except for
essentially minor differences between the Prime
Minister and his most potent opponent, Labor leader
Shimon Peres, a change in the Jerusalem govern-
ment would constitute no major threat to the accord.
But taken together with President Sadat's own i
status in Cairo, there ought to be some careful
thinking done about the future.
It is no secret that President Sadat is in trouble.
Egypt's economic condition is going from bad to
worse. Israel's own economic woes are nothing to
sneeze at, but they are of a different order from
Egypt's, where the extremist Moslem Brotherhood
has been exploiting the country's problems with an
eye toward unseating Sadat and scrapping Egypt's
history from November, 1977 onward, the date of
Sadat's flight to Jerusalem.
With both men knocked out of power, what
would that portend? The answer lies in just how
personal a document the accord hammered out at
Camp David is. Is it a continuing thing beyond the
individual leaders who signed it a national com-
mitment by the two countries involved to a peaceful
future? Or is it durable only so long as both men are
in office to see it through to a time in the future when
that will be so?
Had Prime Minister Begin tripped over the
challenge of the Abortion Law to the survival of his
coalition, the test might already have been upon the
Middle East peace, and possibly to its detriment.
For in our view, the longer it is in force, the greater
the chance it has to go beyond the men who put it
together and to become a fact of international life.
There Ought to be a Law
Recently, U.S. Rep. Stephen Solarz (D., N.Y.)
introduced legislation which would make the
desecration of a house of worship, or the religious
articles in it, a federal crime punishable by a $10,000
fine, five years in jail, or both.
Although several Supreme Court decisions have
ruled against persons accused of disrupting religious
services, these were made with regard to civil
statutes and have never been applied in federal
criminal prosecutions. As a result, the U.S. Justice
Department, believing that it has no legal juris-
diction, has sidestepped church and synagogue
burnings and desecrations unless it believes that
other statutes, such as those regarding explosives,
have been violated.
A more recent survey by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith points to the imperative need
for a federal law to punish those who desecrate in any
way, shape or form houses of worship and cemeteries.
The increased manifestations of anti-Semitism
correspond with the Justice Department's report of a
450 percent increase in racially-motivated vandalism
over a six-month period this year as measured
against all of 1978. The increased anti-Semitic in-
cidents also coincide with the resurgence of the Ku
Klux Klan, neo-Nazi and extreme right wing
organizations around the country.
Continuing economic and social tensions will
tend to exacerbate the anti-Semitic feelings of those
who are looking for a scapegoat. This is the lesson of
history. An effective counter-measure could be a law
such as the one introduced by Solarz. It is only a first
step. But it is a step that must be taken. There ought
to be a law.

UJA's 'Project Renewal'Lauded At
Group's National Conference
NEW YORK A message
from Israel Prime Minister
Menachem Begin declaring that
"Project Renewal will proceed
actively and energetically in the
context of the government's new
economy measures" highlighted
the United Jewish Appeal's
National Conference, Dec. 6-8, at
the New York Hilton Hotel.
The message was delivered at a
leadership dinner Thursday, Dec.
ti, at which UJA national chair-
man Irwin S. Field reported that
the 1980 regular campaign total
to date of $115 million rep-
resented "the largest amount of
money raised, in the most com-
munities, at the earliest date
since the 1974 campaign, which
!x>gan immediately following the
Yom Kippur War."
The 1980 drive seeks a regular
campaign increase of some $100
million, with maximum ad-
ditional pledges for Project Re-
newal, the social rehabilitation
program designed to rejuvenate
the lives of 300,000 immigrants
living in Israel's distressed urban
BUOYED BY these develop-
ments, conference delegates
listened with concern the next
morning as Jewish Agency
treasurer Akiva Lewinsky
described a serious shortage in
cash receipts which, combined
with the eroding effect of near-
runaway inflation, is threatening
drastic cutbacks in many of the
Agency's human support
Settlement plans in the Galilee
I* and Negev will be curtailed, and
) the Youth Aliya program will
accept 2,000 fewer underprivi-
leged children this year unless
there is a significant quickening
of cash flow, he indicated.
The emergency has developed,
he pointed out, at a time when
the high cost of carrying out
Israel's peace treaty obligations
was increasing the Jewish
Agency's share of responsibility
for immigrant absorption and
social progress.
An analysis of the peace
process by former Foreign Minis-
ter Moshe Dayan opened the con-
lerence at a luncheon on Friday
While stressing the primacy of
security for Israel, Dayan ex-
pressed a basically hopeful view
about an eventual solution to
outstanding West Bank issues
which would be acceptable to the
area's Arab population.
In the peace process, as in all
n major Jewish issues of the day,
he felt it was "a time to look to
the future," toward solutions and
a strengthened Jewish presence
in the world.
"A Time To Be Together," was
ceremonially expressed through
awards and tributes to recently
released Jewish freedom fighters,
a Falasha liberation leader, a
century-old Jewish service
organization, and a major
American industrialist who has
actively supported the people of
Israel and UJA/ Federation
campaigns on their behalf.
The first UJA Humanitarian
Award was presented to Henry
Ford II at the Thursday leader-
ship dinner by Max M. Fisher,
chairman of the Jewish Agency
board of governors and past UJA
national chairman.
^ At a "Convocation of Sol-
v idarity" on Friday afternoon at
Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher
Hall, UJA president Frank R.
Uutenberg presented the 1979
UJA David Ben-Gurion Award
for excellence and valor to
^Argentinian Jewish editor
Jacobo Timerman, and offerend
"arm tributes to Boris Penson,
the Soviet Jewish artist who was
unong the Prisoners of Zion

Jews who have reached Israel in
the past three decades. The

through Training (ORT) was

tering its 100th year.
manitarian Award, Fisher
characterized Ford as a "philan-
thropic, kind, charitable humani-
tarian" and cited the auto mag-
nate's efforts to alleviate
unemployment and urban crisis
in Detroit.
In his response, Ford
pressed admiration for Israel for
"permitting technology to work
in the interests of peace" and
focused on the nature of philan-
thropic responsibility.
"As people concerned with
others," he told the UJA cam-
paign leaders, "part of your
responsibility will be keeping
alive the spirit of generosity, the
spirit of caring. Perhaps all of us
can draw strength from one of the
heroines of World War II .
Anne Frank died believing in the
goodness of people. What you are
doing in UJA brings us closer to
the world Anne Frank deserved
to have."

resumed his career as a journalist
in Israel, told an audience of more
than 1,000 at the Avery Fisher

What was most unusual about Community Day? Of all
1,350 women present no two wore the same dress!
Bella Abzug and Ruth Gruber were superb and exciting. It
was a memorable day. In the history of South Broward this was
the largest assemblege of Jewish women that had convened for a
day of communal learning and education.
If I do say so myself the head table looked terrific! The
women were beautifully attired in the latest fashion. At the mile-
long head table were Bobbie Levin, Elaine Pittell, Eleanor
Weiner. Ann Cohn, Joan Raticoff, Federation President Joyce
Newman, Brenda Greenman, Esther Gordon, Delia Rosenberg,
Bobbe Schlesinger. (everyone loved her suit), Barbara Roberts,
Carol Morgenstein.Ina Linda, Florence Roth, Women's Division
Director Susan Holtzman Thomas and myself. Only three men
were lucky enouth to be seated at the dais Rabbi Harold
Richter, Mayor David Keating, and our tall, dark, and hand-
some Executive Director Sumner Kaye. Over 85 gorgeous
hostesses graced the room. Kathy Lynn Grossman of the Miami
Herald was seated with mother Janice Grossman. Sylvia Hagler
and Bea Kreins of the AJC and Gloria Hess joined the many
tables of lovely ladies from Hillcrest. Mary Zinn knelled as
daughter Esther Gordon, Women's Division President, spoke
movingly about Federation activities. Sarah Rashefsky and
Helen Grossman were also proud of V.P. Brenda Greenman.
"Fang" took home movies. I hope they come out better than his
usual cinematography.
Nova University celebrated its 15th Anniversary at the
Diplomat Hotel. A joyous holiday crowd toasted the evening
and honored Davie pioneer and Board Chairman James
Farquhar. Many reminisced of how in 1961 the South Florida
Education Center created an educational complex that would
include a group of learning institutions from elementary school
through a graduate and post doctoral university. In 1965 Nova
U. opened its doors. Innovative, enthusiastic President
Abraham Fischler and charming wife Shirley greeted the guests.
Many mistook "Fang" for Chancellor Dr. Alexander Schure.
At our table were party lovers Sheldon and Bobbe
Schlesinger, Dr. George and Iris Crane, Leon and Camille
Sultan, Sam and Betty Finkelstein. Bobbe had selected from
Roger at the Bouquet Shoppe the table centerpieces which
carried forth a winter wonderland scene. The room was elegant.
The band roared on with its usual melodies and blaring selec-
tions. I heard during the middle of a "funky chicken" number,
Dr. Stanley Silverblatt's service page him to the telephone. City
Commissioner Nikki Grossman was there having recently
returned from an Urban League Convention in Las Vegas.
David and Florette Aranow, Dr. Lou and Ruth Sands also
enjoyed the party. Dr. Marilyn Segal and close friends of the
Fischler's Dr. Ray and Millie Nolan joined the celebration.
Dignitaries from all over Florida wished Nova University good
hick and continued success.
Sherman and Jo Ann Katz have good news. Daughter Andy
and husband James Brooks are expecting their first child.
James was recently named General Manager of Sales for a Rich-
mond, Virginia food brokerage company. Congratulations to the
future grandparents ... Dr. Saul and Millie Nitzberg recently
returned from visiting family in Russia. Mazel tov to Stanley
and Bobbie Berk on Leslie's wedding engagement Joe and
Lois Biegelsen and family, Dr. Lou and Natalie Joblove with
sons Michael and Ricky, Dr. Howard and Sandy Kellner with
sons Joel and Alan, and Dr. George and Iris Crane all enjoyed
the ski slopes over the school holidays.
Harry Kaplan is retiring as Executive Director of Temple
Sinai. On Sunday, January 13, Harry will be honored by his
friends and congregants. Organizing this tribute and roast are
Norman and Pauline Platt, Seymour and Mitzi Mann, Nathan
and nBertha Widlitz, Mort and Dorothy Kushner, and Irving
and Lillian London. Harry and his wife Shriley will travel to
Israel and plan to spend Passover in Paris with "almost" family.
When Harry was in the service 35 years ago, stationed in
Algiers, he met wonderful people with whom he has
corresponded all these years. The Temple Sinai Family will
sincerely miss Harry's leadership and devoted service.
Chanukah is a joyful season and so it was for the full house
of senior adults at the Jewish Community Center in Hollywood.
Elaine Goldstein and Gail Weiaberg directed the activities and
what a great job these two dynamic girls do! Sylvia Liebermaa
led sixteen singers including Elsie Ader, Miriam Nahomi,
Shirley Cooper and George SefteU accompanied by Sol Mandell

Menorah Chapels Take Part
In Planting Israeli Forest
South Broward /Israel Bonds Events
Menorah Chapels, located in
Sunrise, Deerfield Beach and
Margate, has become the first
South Florida funeral firm to
announce full participation in the
planting of a memorial forest in
Lahav, located near Beersheba in
Israel's Negev Desert.
The purpose of the evergreen
forest is twofold. From the
practical standpoint, it is part of
the Jewish National Fund's
(JNF) effort to reclaim desert
land. On a spiritual level, the
forest is a living memorial for the
Jewish people.
In participating in the
program, Menorah Chapels is
planting a tree in the forest for
each funeral service conducted at
one of its chapels.
PLANTING in the Jewish
National Funeral Directors of
America Memorial Forest at
Lahav began eight years ago.
Since then, more than 50
American Jewish funeral firms
and several firms in Canada have
helped create a lush forest with
more than $500,000 in plantings,
as part of JNF efforts for the
"greening of Israel," begun with
the organization's start in 1901.
Israeli land owned by the
Jewish National Fund is the
property of all Jewish people
worldwide. Jews from all nations
have traditionally planted trees
in Israel through the fund, to
commemorate births, weddings
and other happy occasions, as
well as to observe memorials.
To date the JNF has planted
more than 150 million trees and
reclaimed more than 160,000
acres of desert land. Since the
founding of the Israeli state in
1948, tree-planting programs
have helped boost the total
forested land sixfold.
The tradition of planting trees
to commemorate milestones in
one's life grew from Israel's
needs, but also from Biblical
tradition, according to Mark
Weissman, director for Menorah
"THERE ARE references
throughout the Old Testament
that link the life of man to the life
of the trees around him,"
Weissman said. "At the Jewish
Funeral Directors of America
Memorial Forest there is the Tree
of Life Memorial Wall, with
intertwined Chai's, the Hebrew
word for life.
"On the memorial it reads 'For
Man is like the tree of the field,' a
phrase from Deuteronomy 20:19.
Each tree in the forest honors the
memory of an individual Jewish
person. Just as the separate trees
join to form a single, lush forest,
the memory of the individual
Jewish person becomes part of
the legacy of all the Jewish
Jewish tradition even has its
own Arbor Day, Tu B'Shevat,
which the sage Hillel regarded as
the date from which the age of a

The day marks the end of the

sap starts to rise in the trees. It is

trees by school children.

"THE TREE of Life has long

people," Steiner said. "Seeing the

memorial, the funeral directors
joined efforts to create a living
symbol of continuity."

The Jewish Floridian and Shofar of Greater Hollywood
Page 15
By Abe Halpern
(Seventh of a series)
Continued from last column, Jewish Floridian
and Shofar, December 14, 1979, p. 23
Most* scholars agree that the Dead Sea Scrolls
provide evidence that the mode of life, beliefs,
and ideas of the inhabitants of the Qumran area
on the northwestern shore of the Dead Sea-the
F.ssenes-influenced the devleopment of the early
Christian church. Following are three brief
f THE MORE the Dead Sea Scrolls were
studied, the more scholars began to be convinced,
slowly but surely, that there is some striking
similarity between some of the teachings, not the
basics, but some of the teachings of the Essenes
and what we find in the early Christian teachings.
"For example: their belief in the duality: they
Ithe Essenes) talk about light against darkness,
the spirit against the flesh, good against evil,
which is certainly one ot the most significant
teachings of Paul.
"They describe their communal meal, a sort of
ceremony in which they cannot break their bread
before the priest breaks his bread and touches the
wine, all of which reminds one a little of the
Eucharist and described by early Christians.
"The fact is that there are many, many
similarities between the Essenes and the early
"There is a consensus among scholars in-
cluding many important Christians that the
process was the following: The Essenes believed
that. the laws of purity and impurity were not
sufficiently strict (in Jerusalem) and so the
Essenes moved out to the desert and slowly
created what I may call substitute religious
practices, different in many ways from the cult of
the Temple.
"Nonetheless, they still believed that one day
they would come back to Jerusalem and that the
observances there (in Jerusalem) would be
changed to their (the Essenes) method of ob-
servances. In other words they sought to change
but not to leave the Jewish religion.
The Essenes influenced Christianity through
two parallel channels. At the beginning through
John the Baptist, who most probably was a
mi mber of the sect himself, and took some of its
teachings, and later on by Paul when he took
some of the ideas of the Essenes which for them
ere only a sort of an ad hoc religion and applied
them in developing a total new religion ..."
tfwm the tape commentary by Yigael Yadin
dated 1974}
"WHAT WE know now, with a probability
which for all practical purposes, we may as well
call certainty, is that a sect existed in the cen-
turies just before the emergence of Christianity
which was organized in ways that suggest a
relationship to the early Christian churches; that
this community had scriptures; upon which
Christian writers drew in composing their own
scriptures; that there were practices, including
craments, which foreshadow Christian pract-
ices; that there was an expectation of a Messiah
to whom the sect looked forward, and a Teacher,
probably martyred, to whom the sect looked
back, just as in both cases the Christians did.
There are many further similarities." (The
Meaning of the Dead Sea Scrolls, by A. Powell
Davis, p. 42)
I "IT MUST be the theological evidence which
the scrolls supply by which the general thesis of
the emergence of the Primitive Church from this
side of Judaism stands or falls.
"Study of several of the main aspects of
Qumran religion and theology, while evincing

wrote the scrolls.
notable differences, shows clearly a close affinity
and resemblance which seems conclusive for some
historical connection.
"The discovery that the Qumran Essenes
practiced baptismal rites is no new thing in
Judaism: so too did most Jewish sects in the New
Testament period.
"What is unique about Qumran is that such
rites were practised in relation to a movement of
repentance, of entry into a New Covenant (that of
Jeremiah and Ezekiel) and of a new Covenanted
Israel-the sect itself-in preparation for an im-
pending divine Judgement.
"This forms an impressive preparation for New
Testament religion; and it seems idle to deny that
some connection exists between the two
movements. .
"The main differences between the primitive
Christian movement and Qumran are to be
sought in the persons of John and Jesus, both
towering figures, transforming the practices of a
sect into a universal religion by their
proclamation: 'Repent, for the Kingdom < of God
is at hand,' and by their prophetic and Messianic
"Nevertheless, the background of Christianity
in a Qumran-type Judaism seems indisputable;
and the institutions of Qumran, such as their
repeated baptismal practices and rites of
initiation, appear to have cast a very long shadow
indeed, for they are still to be found in the non-
Pauline Roman Church of the late second century
A.D." (The scrolls and Christian Origins, New
Evidence on the Beginnings of Christianity, by

Act of Fanatics
Orthodox Zealots Vandalize Brooklyn Synagogue
The rabbi of a Conservative
synagogue in the Boro Park
section of Brooklyn that
was vandalized last Friday
by Orthodox Jewish
zealots, said it was "the act
of a few irresponsible young
fanatics and not the work of
any responsible organized
Rabbi Baruch Sflverstein
of Temple Emanu-El, told
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, however, that
"one has to blame the at-
mosphere which breeds
such intolerance for Jews
who don't practice the way
they do."
BUT THE rabbi noted that the
flood of sympathy calls he has
been receiving 9ince the incident
included many from Orthodox
rabbis and other members of the
heavily Orthodox-populated
community. The act was also
strongly condemned in state-
ments by Reform and Orthodox
rabbis and by two national
Jewish leaders.
Temple Emanu-El, the only
Conservative house of worship in
the Brooklyn neighborhood, was
attacked by members of a group
calling itself TORAH. An
unidentified person claiming to
be a spokesman for the group
said it was an acronym for
"Tough Orthodox Rabbis and
Hasidim." They claimed respon-
sibility for shattering stained
glass windows and spray-
painting swastikas and a slogan
in Hebrew, "May Their Names
Be Erased' on the walls of the
The spokesman refused to say
how many Jews took part in the
vandalism. He claimed the act
was the beginning of an Ortho-
dox-Hasidic campaign against
Conservative and Reform syn-
agogues throughout the city.
HE SAID a Reform synagogue
in Boro Park, Rodeph Sholom,
was ignored because it is "too
small" to be of concern to his
group. He said the campaign
against non-Orthodox
synagogues was to protest the
"inroads" by the Conservative
and Reform movements in Israel
and that the TORAH group con-
sidered Reform Jews no more
Jewish than "Jews for Jesus."
Silverstein, who was born in
Europe, commented on the irony
that this group "hates me with as
much intensity as Hitler did."
Silverstein studied at the Mirrer
Yeshiva and at Yeshiva Univer-
sity before attending the Jewish
Theological Seminary of America
where he was ordained as a Con-
servative rabbi
Commenting to the JTA,
Rabbi Pinchos Stolper, executive
vice president of. the Union of
Orthodox Jewish Congregations
of America, called the vandal-
izing of Temple Emanu-El an
"ugly and repugnant act."
HE SAID, "I can think of no
Jew who wouldn't condemn such
an act regardless of his ideo-
logical bent." He added, "I don't
believe any Jew will be convinced
to change his ways by employing
the methods of Esau. '
Rabbi Nisson Wolpin, a lonJ
time resident of the Boro Pa?
community who is editor of
Agudat Israel organ Jewi
Observer, told the JTA, '
