Two Sociologists Say Bias Exists
Against Women In U.S.-Israel
Two sociologists one
an American, the other an
Israeli compared notes
at a conference on women's
issues here and concluded
that employment
discrimination against
women continues to exist in
both countries, but
sometimes takes different
forms in each. The com-
parison took place at a
raeli soldier was killed when a
grenade was thrown at his
position in the marketplace in
Nabatiya in the 22 attack by
terrorists on the Israel Defense
Force in south Lebanon in five
The grenade attack followed
by less than 24 hours an inten-
sive air and sea attack by the
Israel military on an alleged
terrorist base some 10 kilo-
meters southeast of Tripoli, in
western Lebanon.
Israeli helicopters raided a
terrorist base said to be a
training and staging area for
attacks on Israel. Later in the
same day, August 1, Israeli
gunboats bombarded the base.
session of a four-day
"dialogue" between
American and Israeli
women sponsored by the
American Jewish Congress.
The meeting was held at
the Van Leer Jerusalem
Cynthia Fuchs Epstein, a
professor at the City University
of New York and a fellow at the
Russell Sage Foundation, said
that in the United States,
"Jewish women, like Jewish men,
have suffered from
discriminatory practices which
have limited their participation in
the work force in certain in-
dustries and spheres of work."
But she also noted that
prejudice against women was
also characteristic of the Jewish
community as a whole "as
characteristic of the Jewish
community itself as of any
Gentile community," so that
Jewish women, like non-Jewish
women, historically found limited
Thus, Epstein said, "Jewish
women suffered from
discrimination in the society at
large, but they also suffered
discrimination in the newly-
developing parallel work com-
munities that Jewish men were
creating" in the United States.
She was particularly critical of
the limitations on services
such as child care available
from the government in the U.S.
for women attempting to com-
bine work and child-raising.

1984 CJA Campaign
ClosesTop $1,206,511
The 1984 Jewish Federation-!
Combined Jewish Appeal
campaign came to a close on June
30 with a record-breaking
$1,206,511 according to Federa-
tion President Charles Ruten-
berg. "This total represents a 15
percent increase over last year.
We have every reason to be proud
of what we have accomplished,"
said Rutenberg. "Campaign
Chairman Stanley Newmark and
Women's Division Chairperson
Elisa Greenberg and the hun-
dreds of people who have given to
the campaign have made it
possible for us to help Jews in
need wherever they are. The
success of our campaign will
enalbe us to allocate funds to the
United Jewish Appeal and to the
local beneficiary agencies in-
cluding the Jewish Community
Center, Gulf Coast Jewish
Family Service and the Pinellas
County Jewish Day School."
The success of the Lion of
Judah Division, which now has
25 members, and the Medical
Division, which raised an addi-
tional $45,000, played a major
role in the success of the cam-
Plans are already being made
for the 1985 campaign which we
hope will lead to even greater
achievements as we continue to
grow and become a bigger,
stronger community.
Mr. Newmark, at a recent
meeting, said that a number of
objectives for the 1984 campaign
had been achieved. "The first was
to go forward on the solid foun-
dations of the marvelous work
done by past Federation and
Combined Jewish Appeal
Chairmen. We tried to involve
new people in the campaign and
we succeeded. The base of the
campaign was broadened. We
had more volunteers than ever
before and more pledges than
ever before. I believe that we
have strengthened the foun-
dations for future successful
campaign efforts.

tive vice chairman of the
National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council,
assailed the Club for "providing a
known bigot with a platform."
Theodore Mann, president of
the American Jewish Congress,
called on the Rev. Jesse Jackson
to "unambiguously repudiate
Louis Farrakhan personally."
Mann asserted that "people pay
attention to Farrakhan only
because of Jesse Jackson's
refusal to repudiate his anti-
Semitic associate."
Jackson, who staged an un-
successful bid for the Democratic
Presidential nomination, has in
the past months refused to
repudiate Farrakhan personally,
although he has sought to
distance himself politically from
his ally and supporter.
Farrakhan has outraged the
American Jewish community
with his disparaging remarks
about Israel and Judaism which
he called a "dirty religion." Some
reports said he had called
Judaism a "gutter religion." He
called the creation of Israel an
"outlaw act" and also termed
Hitler a "wickedly great man."

compared to the same period last year.
There were 120 rape cases, compared to 113 Ull year;
239 robberies, compared to 236 in 1983; and 80f arson

Fogarty, in a telephone in-
terview with the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency in Washington,
said he had no regrets about
having Farrakhan appear at the
Club. "I think he came off as
advertised," he added.
In response to accusations that
the Club was helping to make
Farrakhan a media star, Fogarty
noted that Farrakhan has already
appeared on all the major net-
work news broadcasts.
In allowing Farrakhan to
speak at the Press Club, Fogarty
continued, there was an op-
portunity for him to appear
before a "neutral" forum, which
he did not control and was
subject to reporters' questioning.

designed to provide all types of

Fogarty said that before Far-
rakhan's appearance, the Club
received four letters criticizing

Childhood Depression
Steven B. is the apple of his
parents eye. He has bright geen
eyes and a charming smile and
seemed like a normal happy-go-
lucky 10 year old boy. Then
about six months ago. Steven's
whole personality seemed to
change. Instead of going outside
to play he wanted to stay in his
room all the time. The smile
disappeared from his face, and he
looked perpetually sad all the
time. Mr. and Mrs. B tried to get
Steven to play with friends but
he always had an excuse.
Eventually he started yelling at
his parents to get off his back.

Steven's attitude but shrugged

Egypt Spells Out When It Will
Send Israel Envoy Back
PARIS tJTAl Egypt will return its
Ambassador to Israel only after "a total and un-
conditional" withdrawal of all Israeli forces from south
Lebanon, according to the Egyptian Foreign Minister.
Esmet Abdel Meguid said in a press interview
published here that Israel must fulfill three conditions
before Egypt will resume full diplomatic relations on an
Ambassadorial level. The Egyptian Ambassador in Israel
was recalled to Cairo in September. 1962 after the Sabra
and Shatila massacres.
THE MrNlSTER. who met with President Francois
Mitterrand, told the French dairy Le Quotidien that the
other two prior conditions Israel must fulfill before the
return of the Egyptian Ambassador are:
"Substantial progress on the way to a settlement of
the Palestinian question" and an Israeli withdrawal from
the Taba enclosure, a small enclave near Eilat which Cairo
claims as Egyptian territory.

Malaysia And The New York Philharmonic
Temple Beth El
A recent flap involving the
New York Philharmonic and the
Government of Malaysia reveals
some disturbing amgiguities in
American attitudes toward the
anti-Jewish policies of Islamic
On August 10, the New York
Times reported that the Phil-
harmonic had acquiesced to a
Malysian demand that it drop
Ernest Bloch's "Schelomo" from
a performance scheduled for
Sept. 3 in Kuala Lampur. A
Malaysian Cabinet official was
quoted as citing his govern-
ment's policy against the
"screening or portrayal of
musical presentation of works of
Jewish origin." "Schelomo,"sub-
titled "A Hebrew Rhapsody for
Cello and Orchestra," was in-
spired by the character and
wisdom of the biblical King
News of the Philharmonic's
action provoked an outcry of
protest from Jewish and non-
Jewish sources that prompted a
reversal, within a few hours. As
of this writing, the orchestra will
not perform in Malaysia unless
the government approves the
program as originally announced.
While this bettor-lnte-than-never
decision is welcome, the events
preceding it are a cause for
To begin with, the Malaysian
boycott of music by Jewish
composers underscores the deep-
seated prejudice against all
things Jewish that festers like a
cancer throughout the Islamic
world. Although Islamic,
Malaysia is neither Arabic nor
middle eastern. Located
thousands of miles from Israel, it
can hardly be described as a
"confrontation state."
Nevertheless, Malaysia is
subject to pressures for pan-
Islamic unity rooted in anti-
Semitism. These pressures are
Democrats Adopt Resolution
Dissociating Party From Hate-Mongers
(JTA) The Democratic
National Committee's
executive committee has
adopted a resolution dis-
sociating the party from
anyone who preaches anti-
Semitism or any other form
of bigotry.
The 42 members of the execu-
tive committee approved the
resolution in a telephone poll
conducted by DNC Chairman
Charles Manatt, at the urging of
the Democratic party's candidate
for the Presidency, former Vice
President Walter Mondale,
according to a DNC spokes-
"The Democratic party takes this
opportunity to reaffirm its adher-
ence to pluralistic principles and
to repudiate and completely dis-
sociate itself from people who
perform all forms of bigotry,
racism and anti-Semitism."
The Democrats were criticized
last month by Rabbi Marvin
Hier, dean of the Simon
Wiesenthal Center in Los
Angeles, for not adopting such a
resolution at the DNC meeting
which immediately followed the
Democratic National Convention
in San Francisco.
Hier and Timothy Hagen of
Cleveland,, co-chairman of the
Ohio Mondale campaign, had
prepared the resolution which
Hagen was to have introduced at
the convention. Instead, Hier
charged there was an agreement
that the resolution would be
adopted at the DNC meeting.
HOWEVER, the resolution
was not mentioned at the
meeting and Manatt simply
referred to Mondale's acceptance
speech the night before in which
he deplored bigotry and
prejudice. There were charges
that the Democrats failed to act
because of objections from sup-
porters of the Rev. Jesse
Jackson, who considered the
resolution an attack on them.
Later, Manatt sent a letter to
Hier in which he said, "I want to
assure you of my own commit-
ment personally and on behalf
of the Democratic Party to
oppose any form of bigotry,
racism, discrimination or anti-
The Republicans took full ad-
vantage of the Democrat's failure
to act, with Sen. Alfonse
D Amato (R., N.Y.) announcing
that he had proposed a similar
resolution for the Republican
party platform.
Rep. Trent Lott (R., Miss.),
chairman of the platform com-
mittee for the Republican
National Committee, said the
platform which will be presented
to the convention in Dallas Aug.
21, will have "strong language"
against "anti-Semitism, racism
and bigotry," which he noted the
Democrats had failed to do.
A DNC spokesperson said that
Mondale, in a telegram to
Manatt, had noted that the
Democratic party rules made it
impossible to consider at the
convention any resolution that
had not been approved earlier by
the appropriate committee.
Mondale said that it was agreed
that the party should issue a
statement that would effectively
place it on record against anti-
"Unfortunately, in the excite-
ment and confusion following the
adjournment of the convention
adequate steps were not taken
... to make sure that the resolu-
tion was considered at the
meeting held the next day,"
Mondale said. He added that
while "I agree wholeheartedly"
with Manatt's statement at the
DNC meeting, and his later letter

Waldman, executive director of
the National Jewish Coalition for
Reagan-Bush, that his group

anti-Semitism even before the

Republicans to take a stand.

animals to Arab states as well as
to the Moscow zoo. The animals
are purchased by a wildlife dealer

to Saudi Arabia, Amman and

earned from the sales, the Safari

intensified by the activities of
home-grown fanatics, inspired by
the Ayatolla Khomeini. The
combination of vulnerable
governments and Islamic fanat-
icism heavily influences politics
from North Africa to the Asian
Subcontinent, thus precluding
any progress toward Islamic
acceptance of Israel for the fore-
seeable future.
The Arab-Islamic boycott,
which is a primary expression of
Islamic attitudes, has been in
existence longer than the State of
Israel. For years, it masqueraded
as being aimed solely at Israel,
with whom many Arab states
were technically at wr. and at
companies doing business with
In fact, the boycott has always
been directed at the Jewish
People in its entirety. For
example, until 1967 Jordan
routinely denied Jews of any
nationality passage through the
Mandlebaum Gate to visit East
Jerusalem, Non-Jews, including
Israeli Christians and Moslems,
were allowed to come and go as
they pleased.
In 1979, the United States
moved to protect the rights of its
own citizens, and to force Islamic
countries to choose between then-
prejudices and access to
American technology, by adopt-
ing an amendment to the Federal
Export Administration Act
prohibiting participation in a
foreign boycott based on sex,
religion, race or national origin.
Last spring, two Jewish doctors
won a settlement from Baylor
University on the grounds that
they had been excluded from
practice in Saudi Arabia because
the university acceded to that
country's anti-Jewish policies.
Whether the Philharmonic
capitulation could have been
prosecuted under the terms of
this law is a moot question. It is
clear, however, that the
American Embassy in Kuala
Lampur acted in a way contrary
to its spirit by transmitting the
Malaysian Government's
demand to the Philharmonic, and
to Citibank Corp., which is
underwriting the orchestra's
Asian tour at a cost of approxim-
ately $800,000. Culpable also are
Citibank, for endorsing the
demand; and the Philharmonic,
for agreeing to it.
The incident is not without its
bizarre aspects. The New York
Philharmonic is more likely a
victim of the Arab-Islamic
boycott than a participant. Many
of its musicians are Jewish. It
relies heavily on the New York
Jewish community for ticket
purchases and contributions. Its
music director, Zubin Mehta, is
also music director of the Israel
Philharmonic, and an outspoken
champion of the Jewish State.
Moreover, the Philharmonic's
programs for Kuala Lampur
included works by three other
Jewish composers George
Gershwin, Aaron Copland, and
Leonard Bernstein which were
not challenged by Malaysian
Why was "Schelomo," alone,
singled out for deletion? Only the
Malaysians know for sure, but it
is not unreasonable to imagine
that some bureaucrats asigned to
oversee the Philharmonic's
appearances simply didn't know
about Gershwin, Copland and
Bernstein. He was, however,
caught by the Bloch piece's sub-
title, "A Hebrew Rhapsody," and
applied a reflex blue pencil.
This is what one author,
writing about the Holocaust,
characterized as the "banality of
evil:" how the capricious act of
some faceless bureaucrat can
make willing pawns of the
world's mightiest nation and one
of the world's mightiest corpora-
tions, and cause one of the
world's great cultural institu-
tions to compromise its integrity.
The story has a happy ending
this time it often doesn't
thanks to the vigilance of Jewish
organizations. But there is also a
moral to the tale: the need for us
to remain on the lookout for
incidents of this type, both at
home and abroad, which may
iappear minor but which, if left
unchecked, can escalate.

"BUT THERE is another
reason, a personal incident that
led me to believe that we must
seek the truth about the
Holocaust. In 1943, I was in
London with the OSS (the
predecessor to the CIA, headed
by General "Wild BUI"
Donovan). I was a major,
special assistant to General
"I had a letter of introduction
from the Jewish Labor Com-
mittee to a fellow by the name
of Shmuel Zeiglebaum. He was
the representative of the Polish
socialist party in exile in
Finland. The Polish government
had many intelligence reports
coming from Poland, via the
underground, and Zeiglebaum
would share them with me. And
I would share them with my
government. Obviously. It was
my job.
"Zeiglebaum came to me a'
the time of the Warsaw ghettc
uprising in May, 1943. He
advised me that Jews were
fighting in the ghetto. He also
had a dossier on what was hap
pening in Auschwitz. By that
time. 2 or 3 million Jews had
already been killed.
"But a Pole named Jan
Karski. a very courageous fellow
who was 19 or 20 at the time,
dressed up in an Esthonian
policeman's uniform and went
into Auschwitz. He got out and
brought with him pictures of the
crematoria, of the bodies, of
people who had died of starva-
tion, and affidavits from in-
mates of what was going on. It
was a compelling document.
"WE HAD heard about the
actual killing from 1941 on,
because we had broken the
Germans' code and we were
intercepting cables which, if you
read them carefully, indicated
that Jews were being trans-
ported to death camps. But this
was the first time that someone
from inside a camp had actually
brought out material.
"So Zeiglebaum, who gave me
the dossier, said that the Jews
had two requests, one from
Auschwitz and another from the
ghetto, to have the places
"I raised the natural question.
If the ghetto is bombed, won't
Jews be killed, too? Zeiglebaum
said yes, they knew that, but
they would like the Germans
killed. They were going to be
killed anyhow, he said he
put it to me very bluntly and
they wanted the ghetto bombed.
"They were armed with very
insufficient weapons against
tanks flame throwers and so
on and their armament was
puny compared to what the
Germans could wheel in on
THE SECOND request,
from the inmates of Auschwitz,
was to have the railroad junc-
tion, which was where the
transports came every day by
the thousands from all over
Europe, bombed. And they also
wanted the camp itself bombed.
"And again I raised the ques-
tion: 'Won't that kill them?'
The answer was, They'll be
lolled anyway.'
"So I sent a courier to
Washington with Zeiglebaum s
requests to Gen. Donovan,
asking him to take it up with
the highest authority. Donovan
was a good man, and I believe
that he did what I asked,
because a few days later he sent
a messenger back to me, saying
that he was taking it up with
the highest authority, our high

would divert planes from their ,
primary mission of going after
Germans. We were bombing five
miles from Auschwitz at the
time. It wouldn't have been a
very great diversion.
"So it was my sad duty to
call Zeiblebaum I had him to
dinner and give him the
response. The next day he com
mitted suicide.
"SO MAYBE, if you ask why
I was willing to probe the .ques-
tions raised by the Holocaust, I
don't think there can be a sen-
sible argument as to why the
facts shouldn't be brought to
light. Because we have to learn
the lessons. And I must say we
Justice Goldbert reviewed the
lessons and attributed the
responsibility for the tragedy,
based on the report of the Com-
mission on the Holocaust.
"I rate what happened as
follows." he said. "Hitler was of
course a killer. He stands in a
class by himself. No Jew did the
"Second comes the anti-
Semitism or indifference of the
Allied governments. They could
have opened their doors in the
period between 1933 and 1939
and rescued a considerable
number of Jews. But the
restrictive immigration laws of
the so-called democratic, civil-
ized, countries prevented them.
"SO HITLER lulled the Jews.
What we're dealing with is
rescue. Could some have been
rescued? My conclusion is yes.
Hundreds of thousands could
have been saved. So I blame
governments first; their indif-
ference and anti-Semitism.
Maybe indifference is on a
slightly lower scale than anti-
Semitism. Not very much.
"Third comes the media,
outside of the Yiddish press.
The Yiddish press had a good
many stories about the killings.
But the general press had very
few. So I rate the media as very
responsible, not for the killing,
but for the non-rescue.
"After that, I rate the indif-
ference of the Christian com-
munity. There were righteous
gentiles who did what human
beings ought to do, and helped,
but the great bulk of the
Christians did not. The Vatican
was delinquent, so were the
Protestant churches.
"WHEN IT comes to the
Jews, the Jewish organizations
did not do all that they could
have done. But in their defense,
if there is a defense for not
having done all that could have
been done, we must remember
that the Jewish organizations of
40 years ago were not what they
are today. There was no Jewish
lobby, they were just emerging
from immigrant status, the
principal spokesmen were two
rabbis, Stephen Wise and Aba
Hillel Silver.
"Today, the spokesmen for
the Jewish community are
presidents of Jewish organiza-
tions, big contributors to the
Republican and Democratic
Parties. They have some poli-
tical muscle. In those days, that
was lacking.
"Also the Jewish people,
including myself I'm guilty
had a land of love affair with
Roosevelt, and they refused to
believe that he could be indif-
ferent to their plight. But he
had other priorities.
"And it must be remembered
that this was a period of great
unemployment. And that
primarily was the Administra-
tions' concern.
"THE LEAST responsible for
the rescue failure would be those
who lived in Palestine; Zionists.
But there were only 600,000 of

was under the British mandate
at the time, and subject to the
most restrictive of immigration
The lessons to be learned
from the Holocaust experience.
Justice Goldberg pointed out,
are simple, but among the most
difficult to act upon.
"When human rights are
violated," he said, "whether it's
Jews or anybody else, you have
to raise your voice, not just
submit. You may not do good
immediately, but you must
speak out.
"I had a conversation with
Russian dissidents, both Jewish
and non-Jewish, when I was
ambassador-at-large to a human
rights convention in Belgrade.
They had been expelled or
escaped from the Soviet Union.
So I asked them, 'You know,
I'm willing to be very vigorous
at this meeting. Is that going to
hurt those who remain? I'm not
anxious to hurt them.'
"THE ANSWER I got was
uniform: 'Please go ahead. It
may not help in terms of
persuading the Russian govern-
ment, but the Jews and other
dissidents still inside will not
feel alone. They will have the
sense that people are conscious
of their plight.
"Another thing we have
learned (and that world Jewry
has learned, I hope) is never to
repeat the role of what was
called the Judtmrat. Those were
the beads of the Jewish commu-
nities in Europe who I think,
basically out of good motives
dealt with the Nazis. Step by
step, they had to provide the
lists of the people the Nazis
wanted. And they all landed in
Auschwitz, by the way.
"But beyond that, the
conscientious ones, who took it
because they hoped to have an
ameliorating influence, learned
that they were being used to
keep Jews quiet.
"It is this type of thing that I
think has to be talked about.
We do not cooperate nor col-
laborate. You know you're going
to be killed anyhow, but at least
you save your own conscience.
You don't make it easy for the
real killers."
leaned forward in his seat. He
meant to deal, once and for all,
with the charge that Jews expe-
rienced a conflict of interest
between their religion and their
allegiance to the United States.
It was a sore point. He had
been accused of double loyalty
in 1965 when he resigned his
seat on the Supreme Court to
represent the United States at
the UN.
"The charge of double loyalty
is nonsense," he said. "I left the
Supreme Court to serve the
country. I don't have to prove
my loyalty. I've demonstrated
it. I gave up lifetime security
and a job I love because our
country was in trouble in
Vietnam and I thought I could
help get us out of it. How many
people would do that? And I
don't regret it. I miss the court,
but I did the right thing.
"But I'll tell you something
about Jews. Sometimes they ag-
gravate me. I'll be honest with
you. They are so enamored with
their titles that they miss the
point. Is title and position more
important than principle?
"JEWS, I THINK, should
give the back of their hands to
this charge of double loyalty.
Take Israel. We're allies.
President Reagan says so. So
what's wrong with supporting
an airy? I think Jews don't
1 reason it out. Sometimes it's
because people don't recognize
I the nature of America. We are a
pluralistic country. We come
from many countries. And what
is wrong with a strong attach-
ment to your origins, your
roots? It may surprise you to
know that even Supreme Court
Justices who are Jewish some
times fall into this.
"I was the only Supreme
Court justice out of five in 1962
who took his oath on a Hebrew
Bible. Everybody else took it on
the King James version, but
when they presented it to me, I
said, "That's not my Bible. IU
swear on the Hebrew Bible.'
"And do you think it won me
any criticism? It won me praise
from my colleagues. They said.
You did the right thing. Would
you like us to autograph that
Bible? So I had them do it. and
now I don't know how to divide
the Bible between my two
children (Barbara and Robert)
I've given them each a cabinet
chair. That's fine. But I only
have one Bible.
Orthodoxy," said Goldberg,
leaning back and crossing one
leg over the other. "My father
was an Orthodox rabbi in
Chicago. I waa once st a
meeting where several people in
the audience expressed dis-
approval over my leaving the
court. A rabbi got up and
wanted to reply. I was tired of
answering, so I said, 'Rabbi,
please do.' He said 'You were at
the UN in '67. You were the
author of 242 (the UN resolution
that established the principles
for a settlement after the Six-
Day War). It was baskert (fate)
that you should be in that place
at that time.'
" 'You answered it better
than I could,' I said. Thank
you very much.' "

The Federations and Israel

ND ISRAEL: Something

American Jewish com-
mnity and the community
Israel is being initiated

Jewish Federations
!JF). This central organ

ie office will be opened on
iptember 1 in Jerusalem.
It is no secret that there is a
ping gap between Israel and
Federations in the United
ktes and Canada in un-
standing each other. The
derations prefer not to come
into the open with their
fevances, but grumbling by
|ir leaders is heard at closed
and regional meetings and
their national board meetings.
t CJF has been under growing
bsure to indicate to Israeli
Hers and infhientiala the
ssity to close or at least
ow the gap which worries
American Jews interested
lelping Israel.
[he Federations are the
kncial backbone of Jewish
imunal activities. They raise
contributions about $600
on a year to help meet local,
jnal and overseas needs. Half
lis sum goes to Israel throuKh
'Shana Tova
the United Jewish Appeal "to
meet communal needs there. But
the Federation leadership has
come to realzie that the people in
Israel even members of the
Knesset have no un-
derstanding of the pulsating
Jewish community life in the
United States and Canada.
The information given by
Israelis to people in Israel is
considered by Federation leaders
as often distorted. American
Jews are viewed in Israel
primarily as a fund-raising source
and a factor active in
Washington on problems con-
cerning relations between the
American and Israeli govern-
ments. Israelis are said to know
practically nothing of how the
Federations work, their scope of
activities, their influence, their
philosophy, their services,
community organization and
problem-solving approaches, as
well as their achievements in
stimulating Jewish life in the
community. This is true even
with regard to influential
government officials. They are
allegedly indifferent to what is
going on in American Jewish life,
except to matters concerning
Israel, despite the fact that the
Jews in the United States are the
largest Jewish community in the
world. This, according to Martin
Citrin, CJF president, has im-
paired the effectiveness of
dialogue and cooperation bet-
ween the two communities.
As an example of this in-
difference to understanding
Jewish life in America, the
leaders of the Federations cite the
fact that there is no curriculum
provision in Israeli elementary
and secondary school systems for
the teaching about the Jewish
communities in the U.S. and
Canada, while there is extensive
curricula and materials there
related to Jewish life in other
countries of the diaspora.

ana problems around un-
derstanding between the
organized Jewish communities in
the U.S. and Canada and the
, Jewish community in Israel have
become exacerbated. These
developments have given a sense
of urgency to the need for the
CJF to build stronger relations
with Israel. As the growing list of
concerns of Federation leaders
and members has increasesd, it
became essential for the CJF to
think of opening an office in
Israel to build bridges of un-
The CJF leaders came to the
conclusion that only a CJF
i presence representing the
I organized Jewish communities in
the U.S. and Canada and
speaking when necessary on their
behalf can aid in ac-
complishing the distinctive goals
that Federations require in their
Israel relationships. Presently,
there are a number of American
Jewish organizations which have
offices in Israel the United
Jewish Appeal, American Joint
Distribution Committee,
American Jewish Committee,
and others but no one among
them can speak for the
Federations. Prior to deciding to
establish an office in Israel, CJF
consulted these organizations.
They all agreed that represen-
tation of the Federations is
needed in Israel; it will be helpful
to them in their own work, they
Some Federation leaders who
strongly advocated the opening
of a CJF office in Israel have
advanced the argument that the
basic trusteeship responsibility
of Federations for their allocated
funds which is applied to
domestic uses should also be
applied in Israel that the
contributed dollars be spent for
the most important needs, be
used most productively, with the
soundest policies and programs.
They pointed out that the CJF
has been established and
maintained by the Federations to
act as their instrument to assure
this by making independent and
objective analyses.
ISRAEL: The functions of the
CJF office in Israel will be in
general to expand the agenda of
the relations between the North
American Jewish communities
and Israel. This will include
extension significantly beyond
the purely philanthropic area.
The Federations place great
emphasis on the need to build
constructive relationships
between the people of this
country and the people of Israel
in all their variety. The functions
will include:
1. Interpreting Federations in
an ongoing manner to influential
sectors of Israeli leadership and
2. Monitoring, collecting and
providing on-site information,
analyses and intelligence to
Federations in the U.S. and
Canada regarding developments
in Israel that could impact
directly and indirectly on the
Federation agenda.

Marcia Bender discussed some
of the notable aspects of the trip.
"We were a varied group of 14
extremely congenial travel
partners on our trip to Israel in
May. The JN F did a super job of
planning our two week travel
Some of our highlights on the
trip were the visit to the Absorp-
tion Center at Ashod: There we
met a charming Israeli lady who
gave us the background and
meaning of an absorption center.
We then went to a classroom at
the center to personally meet
with the new immigrants who
were about to complete a class
session. We came into the room
just prior to the welcoming of the
Sabbath, and there was therefore,
a festive feeling around us. We
were invited into the room to
personally chat with the recent
arrivals. I met and talked with a
young couple from Romania who
came to be part of the ever-
growing Israel.
Our JNF group was warmly
received as we interrupted their
regular class activity. There were
many people from all over the
world learning Hebrew and all
the vital things necessary to
become part of this very vital
society. Everyone was excited
about their new land and all were
full of enthusiasm.
We soon joined in song and
dance with the instructors and
the new immigrants and some of
our JNF group.
Another special treat during
our two week visit was the
kibbutzim we visited. The
spokesman at Beit Ha'emek was
an especially fascinating per-
i sonality with a reai important
message for many of us.
The family we met a Gesher
Haizv was originally an
American family, and they too
had a special way of imparting
their Israeli story to us.
The Israeli we met at Mitzpeh
Hila was to me the most out-
standing personality we met
during the entire trip. He repre-
sents in every way the true
frontiersman and the most heroic
Israelite in every sense of the
word. The job he does and the life
style he has chosen for himself
and his family is epic in
proportion to the rest of the
world. Mitzpeh Hila is one of 18
new mitzpim (outposts) on Isra-
el's northern borders where the
land has been redeemed by the
JNF for settlement by young
Jewish families.
Meeting Menachem
Perlmutter, Director of
Engineering for the Negev, was
another special highlight. He is a
man with a very special story to
tell and he was so full of facts and
information, it is difficult for me
to relate the new and fascinating
agriculture he shared with us
mutuations of plants and surface
irrigation were some exciting
things he told to us. New kinds of
fruit, better tomatoes, and un-
believable shelf-life for a new
garlic (and after all, what is food
without garlic). The land in the
Negev is being readied for
agricultural development by the

For many people, the first moment they think about a
funeral and its related costs is when they have to. But by
then, they may be neither emotionally nor financially
equipped to deal with the situation.
To eliminate this problem, more and more families
are coming to us today for information on pre-arranged
funerals and prepaid plans. One such monetary plan is
called a funeral trust agreement, by which the money
allocated in trust, which is deposited in an insured
financial institution, still belongs to you and may be
withdrawn at any time

The incident has been kept
quiet till now, with many red
faces at both Ben Gurion Airport
in Israel and the Rumanian
capital's airport and investiga-
tions about security procedures
at both places have been started.
THE YOUTH arrived at Ben
Gurion Airport from his home in
northern Israel one day at the
end of May without a ticket,
passport or boarding card. He
walked past passport control and
security guards, boarded the
plane and took a vacant seat.
The air crew, who are supposed
to count passengers, apparently
failed to do so. When a security
guard aboard the plane asked for
his boarding card the youth
pointed to a group of elderly
tourists behind him and said:
"My grandmother has it."
During the flight, the
stowaway ate and drank with the
other passengers and is now
reported to have enjoyed the
flight thoroughly. In Bucharest
the youngster mingled with the
tourist group. Passports were not
checked individually as the tour
agent presented them all to the
authorities in a batch.

News in Brief
Report Plans to Exit
IDF from Lebanon
TEL AVIV Plans which
would enable an Israel Defense
Force pullback from Lebanon
within six to eight weeks have
been drawn up by senior officers
serving in south Lebanon, it is
reported by Israel Radio.
According to the report, the
plans by unnamed officers had
been submitted to the govern-
ment, but no action was taken.
The withdrawal plans would
ensure the continued safety of
Galilee after the IDF pulls back
to the Israeli side of the border in
four stages, but would retain a
number of strategic positions on
the hills overloking the coastal

Orthodox Hit U.S.
Law of Return Pressure
NEW YORK Five American
Orthodox organizations joined in
a statement assailing secular
agencies for alleged interference
in the internal affairs of Israel
and with causing disunity among
the Jewish people.
A key issue is the long-running
verbal battle over demands of
Orthodox Jews throughout the
world that Israel's Law of
Return, which provides that any
Jew may enter Israel as of right,
be modified by the Knesset in
regard to converted Jews to
apply only to those converted
under Orthodox auspices. It is
understood to be certain to be an
issue in the current negotiations
for a new coalition government in
The Orthodox agencies com-
plained that the securer organ-
izations might be using the
United Jewish Appeal and the
United Israel Appeal "to rally
support for" the Reform and
Conservative movements of
Judaism on the question of "Who
is a Jew."
Arens Defends Enlarging
Jewish Area in Hebron
Minister Moseh arens has
defended the enlargement of the
Jewish area in heavily Arab
populated Hebron in the West
Bank, saying that even the Arab
population should be interested
in that settlement.
Speaking to a gathering here of
Emunah, the national religious
women's organization, Arens
said the Arabs should welcome
the Jewish settlers because this
"would eradicate the blow of the
terrible Arab pogrom in the Jew-
ish population in 1929."
"I think that there is con-
siderable understanding amongst
many of the Arab population in
Hebron," Arens contended, "that
it is right and proper and even in
their own interest, that that
destruction and that act of
carnage that took place in 1929
should not remain the last word
and that the Jewish quarter in
Hebron should be reestablished."

Two Soldiers Killed
In Drag Race
soldiers were killed and four of
their civilian friends were injured
in a road accident arising out of a
drag race between two cars along
a Galilee panhandle road.
The accident ocurred as the
young men and women members
of Galilee kibbutzim were
returning in the early morning
hours from a party celebrating
the 19th birthday of one of the
According to the driver of one
of the two cars, which had four
youths in it, they had all left the
party at Kfar Hanassi in high
spirits, "and forgot, un-
fortunately, the laws of sensible
The driver, who was injured,
told Israeli reporters that the two
cars raced each other along a
straight stretch of road, passing
one another at high speeds.
"But as we passed, we side-
swiped each other," the driver
said. "My car careened off the
road and overturned. The other
car, with the two young soldiers
in it, hit a tree."
