policies that "aggravate

"most basic social ills" and

The denunciation by Albert
Chernin, exec, vice-chairman of
the National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council, was
contained in an "Overview" of
"Basic Trends and Priorities in
Jewish Community Relations,"
presented at a four-day annual
plenum of the NJCRAC and con-
curred in by the plenum.
Chernin's attack was typical of
the sharp criticism of the Reagan
Administration's domestic pro-
grams, as well as calls to the
American Jewish community to
respond with a new emphasis on
domestic social and economic
concerns, which marked the four-
day meeting of the plenum in
CHERNIN stressed the eco-
nomic and social conditions that
"find millions of Americans liv-
ing at or near poverty, and many
more, who had escaped poverty"
but "may slip into it in the com-
ing year."
Chernin said that "among
these numbers is a huge perman-
ent underclass that has fostered
social pathologies for which soci-
ety is paying a terrible price, in-
cluding welfare costs, crime and
fear in the cities. It is stirring
strong Black-white hostility and,
possibly, anti-Semitism among

funded in part by a grant from
the Florida Endowment for the

project was begun several
months ago and is expected to
continue for a few years.
"People don't write letters or
keep records the way they used
to. They use the telephone in-

telling what has happened, be-
comes very important," stated
Dr. Haviva Langenauer, project

Blast at U.S. Didn't Help
Begin the Heavy in American Opinion
Continued from Page 1
States need to be dressed down
by an Israeli Prime Minister in
such outrageous terms? That's
why there was such an anguished
response in Washington.
"THIS IS a case of overreac-
tion by Mr. Begin." said Demo-
cratic Sen. Henry Jackson of
Washington State, one of Israel's
most devoted friends on Capitol
Hill. "It's regrettable that he
makes these kinds of moves. Is-
rael has been hurt by the uni-
lateral act of annexation. A lot of
Jewish leaders are very unhappy
with its actions on the Golan
Begin, obviously, would be in a
much stronger and completely
different moral position to attack
the United States if Israel were
not so financially hooked on
Washington. But the facts are
Editorials around the country
referred to this fact. Begin and
his Cabinet colleagues do not
want to be reminded that a size-
able chunk of Israel's annual
budget comes from the United
States. Even a modest reduction
would cause serious economic
and social dislocations in Israel
even higher taxes, more unem-
ployment, heightened ethnic ten-
sions between the have's and the
have-not's and increased emigra-
"Are we a vassal of yours?"
Begin asked. The New York
Times had this reply: "The ans-
wer is no. but Israel depends
upon more American aid and
weapons than are available to
any other nation. This support
sustains not only a vital military
superiority but also a standard of
living that emboldens a talented
people to struggle on against
great odds."
THE Washington Post com-
mented that Begins intensity
"betrays an awareness of what is
for Israel a reality too terrible to
contemplate. Zionism is the Jew-
i ish people's assertion of control
over their own destiny. Yet some
of Israel's policies, and especially
some of Mr. Begin's, have work-
ed to make Israel ever more de-
pendent on the outside power, the
United States."
There is no denying that the
U.S. has provided such enormous
financial aid to Israel over the
years because successive Ad-
ministrations and Congresses
have also come to recognize it as
an investment in America's own
national security interest and in
peace. As President Reagan,
himself, has pointed out on many
occasions: it's not just a one-way
it i ut, with the U.S. doing all the
giving and Israel all the taking.
Israel does provide important
strategic benefits for the United
States In a rather unstable part
of the world. Israel is the only
democratic, reliable ally, with a
proven military ability to help
America and the West during a
But still. Israel, at the same
time, cannot lose sight of the fact
that it remains very dependent
on America, and that American
taxpayers, therefore, have a very
difficult time understanding Mr.
Begin's outburst.
BEGIN, himself, knows only
too well exactly how painfully de-
pendent Israel has become,
especially since the 1973 war. It
was first underscored to him
shortly after Israel and Egypt
signed the Camp David accords.
He blundered badly when, in a
gush of national pride, he shot
from the hip and informed then-
Secretary of State Cyrus Varx*
that Israel wanted the U.S. to
provide Israel with loans, rather
than outright grants, to help pay
for the construction of new air
bases in the Negev and for other
expenses resulting from Sinai
withdrawal. Israel would pay
back every dollar "with interest,"
Begin said. Israel did not want
But when his stunned eco-
nomic advisers later pointed out
to him exactly how costly this
would be how much it would
impact on the Israeli economy
and society he quickly backed
down from that admirable stance
His pride was hurt, but the reti
ities of Israel's pocketbook came
first. It must have been painful
for Begin to accept.
Things would have turned out
differently if Israel's defense bur-
den had not become so great or if
another five-million Jews had
moved to Israel over the yean.
Then, it might have had the lux-
ury of scolding Washington. But
even then, Begin's remarks
would strike most people as na-

and even greater anticipated cuts
in the next three years of the
Reagan Administration. He
charged that "the heaviest bur-
den will fall on the working poor
who will fall through the safety
net for the truly needy.'
HE WARNED that reduced
federal aid to cities will "wash
out federal tax benefits' and that
cities and states "will have to
spend more and tax more
through regressive taxes to
fight the maladies plaguing our
cities. The poorest locations with
the greatest needs will be hit
most severely." He added that
"parallel with thi- is a radical re-
treat from the use of law to pro-
tect and foster equal opportun-
ity "
Stressing that "there is no
quick fix to these problems,"
Chernin insisted, nevertheless,
that "we have learned over these
past 50 years that they will yield
in some measure to massive fed-
eral efforts linked to local gov-
ernments and the voluntary sec-
Such programs, he declared
"must be based on pragmatism,
not the ideologies of left or right,
and such programs must be alt-
ered or dropped when they do not
work or produce adverse unin-
tended consequences."

that "now is the time to define

[The cost of living index rose by
to more than 7.3 percent in
onuary of 1980 and 1981. The
|ureau said last month's increase
i caused largely by price hikes
hulling from sharp cuts in
livernment subsidies.
ItBE JANUARY rise was
[arming because it pushed the
Tnual rate of inflation up to 127
fcrcent compared to 101 percent
1st year. The big jump was
Igistered despite declines of 22
?rcent in the prices of fruits and
vegetables and a 3.1 percent
decrease in the prices of clothing
and footwear.
But building costs went up by
13.3 percent last month. Builders
announced that the price of
housing would increase at a
similar rate despite a slowdown
in the sale of apartments.
Aridor has stated his intention
to bring Israel's inflation rate
down from triple to double digit
proportions. His goal this year is
a 90 percent rate. But he insists
he cannot do this unless his
fellow ministers agree to cut
down government spending. He
is embroiled in arguments with
many of his colleagues on this
Issue, though so far he has
avoided a Cabinet debate. He
faces strong opposition and does
not have the support of Premier
Menachem Begin.
According to the Central
Bureau of Statistics, an average
family in Israel needed a monthly
income of 11,700 Shekels (8670)
in January to sustain the same
standard of living as last year.
The Bureau also noted that the
cost of living has increased some
500-fold since September, 1951.

Haig Spoke Truth
We would like to know what the whole flap's
about. Are people excited by what Secretary of State
Haig said? Or by how he said it? With respect to the
second question first, because that is easiest to
dispense with: Since the days of the Nixon Ad-
ministration and the Watergate tapes, no one should
be surprised by the salty language on Capitol Hill.
After all. we do not send poets there to serve the na-
tion, although, arguably, that is a flaw in our na-
tional character.
Particularly, with respect to Secretary of State
Haig. why expect an old military man to sound like,
say. Dylan Thomas? And even Dylan Thomas, in the
private agonies of his worst private days, could fuss
up a four-letter storm without too much prompting.
Then the storm on Capitol Hill is what Mr. Haig
said. Is that it? If it is. we are even more surprised,
especially because he hasn't said a single thing that
others have not said before him. or certainly thought
to say. They are these:
1) After Apr. 25. when Egypt has the Sinai
Peninsula back under its control, there is likely to be
a dramatic turnaround in President Mubarak's
friendliness toward Israel. The fact is, the turn-
around is already apparent. Only last week,
Mubarak was in Oman, mending Egypt's fences
there for the first time since the so-called Sadat
"peace initiative."
2) The basic Middle East trouble is that, as
Secretary of State Haig has been quoted as declaring
so undiplomatically, we keep "kicking Israel's ass,"
when in fact it is other rumps that need some kicking
there, especially Egypt's and Mubarak's who, in
Haig's view, are the real intransigents in the au-
tonomy negotiations.
These, then, are the two things that have caused
such an intake of breath on Capitol Hill. We can't
believe they are novel. No, the breathiness is of
another order surprise at the honesty of a spokes-
man for an Administration that keeps selling its soul
to the devil by the barrel of oil.
Reagan Must Get Act Together
President Reagan's "Dear Menachem" letter th-
warted at least for the time being what could have
easily erupted into another round of diplomatic war-
fare between Washington and Jerusalem. But the
fall out from the latest incident, revolving around
Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger's reported
otter to sell advanced military weaponry to Jordan
has brought into focus with ever increasing clarity
the inability of President Reagan to conduct a cohe-
sive and directed foreign policy toward the Mideast
I o rectify this situation, the tug-of-war between the
state Department and the Pentagon must be halted
by the President himself.
Over at the State Department. Secretary of
State Haig has worked feverishly to get the
autonomy negotiations in motion, seeking to ad-
vance a settlement with the deadline for Israel's
withdrawal from the Sinai imminent. He appears to
see the Camp David process as the only viable work-
ing peace plan in the Middle East at the present time
and has stayed publicly on that line.
On the other hand, over at the Pentagon. Wein-
berger has side-stepped the policies of Haig and
offers those who refuse to negotiate, modern military
hardware from the U.S. This is done in a last ditch
effort to salvage what is left of the Administration's
proposed strategic consensus theory to align
"moderate" Arab states to prevent Soviet interven-
tion in the region.
So while Haig speaks of negotiations, Wein-
berger talks of more weapons. The President is ulti-
mately in charge of foreign policy and responsible for
the actions of his Administration appointments.

Maxwell Housi Coffee
Is After Shopping Relaxation.
Shopping for a "good buy" has be-
come one of Americas favorite pas-
times. It's always fun to find new
things, see the new fashions and
perhaps pick up something new for
the house or family.
Another favorite pastime is to come
home from shopping, kick off the
shoes and relax with a good cup of
coffee. Maxwell House* Coffee. The
full-pleasant aroma and great-
tasting, satisfying flavor is .
the perfect ending
to a busy shop-
ping day. Espe-
cially when
relaxing with
a close friend. The good talk. The
good feelings. The warmth are some
. of the things that go along with
Maxwell House? Perhaps that's why
many Jewish housewives don't shop'
for Maxwell House' They simpry
buy it. It's the "smart buy" as any
balabusta knows!
So, no matter what your prefer-
enceinstant or ground when
you pour Maxwell House? you pour
relaxation. At its best.. .consis-
tently cup after cup after cup.
A living tradition in Jewish homes far twer half a mOmy.

and presoirt
a study in realtiy
The most beautiful and prec-
ious legacy which a father can
bequeith to his children is the ac-
cumulated wisdom and ex-
perience of an entire lifetime. The
closing pages of the Book of
Genesis poignantly depict the
final moments of Father Jacob as
he summons his sons to his bed-
side for the last time "to bless"
them, strengthening them with
his experience, his wisdom and
his counsel. The Midrash relates
that Jacob had originally in-
tended to reveal to his sons what-
ever was destined to befall them
at the end of time. However, the
prophetic faculties of the
patriarch had failed him, and he
was constrained to limit his re-
marks to a parting "benedic-
Commonly accepted defini-
tions of the verb "to bless" in-
clude: to consecrate, to ask for
divine favor, to wish well, to
make happy or prosperous, to
gladden and to praise. Yet, for
the most part, this is hardly the
sense of the final "blessing"
which Jacob imparts to his sons.
It is true that Jacob made men-
tion of several positive character
traits which his sons possessed.
On the other hand, he character-
ized several of his sons in terms
which can hardly be categorized
as "blessings," as least as far as
the ordinary meaning of the word
is concerned. To the casual eye,
these incisive remarks are apt to
be classified as sheer thought-
lessness or utter disregard for the
sensitivites of his children.
Reuben, the eldest, is castigated
as "unstable," lacking both
strength and character.
.. Simeon and Levi are character-
ized as a vindictive pair, given to
violence and lawlessness. Benja-
min is a "ravenous wolf," where-
as Issachar is a "strong-boned
ass." When all is said and done.
Jacob appears to have gone out
of his way to be harsh and un-
This paradoxical episode is so
startling and unanticipated, that
our sages were inclined to refer to
it as a "parasha setumah," an
obscure chapter whose meaning
was enigmatic and uncertain.
Yet, there is a magnificent di-
mension to this narrative which
is easily overlooked and which is
likely to go unnoticed at first
Jacob was not merely the
father of his people. He was also
the head of his own family. He
was ultimately acquainted with
The Blessing of Jacob
Rabbi Howard J. Hirsch
the propensities and predilections
of his own sons. And therefore,
within the emotion-laden context
of his last moments upon earth.
Jacob did not indulge in
meaningless sweetness and light.
He spoke rather in terms of eter-
nity. His parting blessing was
not a prayer for wealth and pros-
perity. Neither was it merely a
wish for comfort and happiness.
Jacob's parting blessing was the
essence of truth itself, and the
truth about each of his sons
proved to be the kindest of all the
benedictions which he might
lovingly bestow upon them.
Jacob desperately attempted to
communicate with his sons,
shedding light upon their
complex individualities, clearing
for them the paths of self-knowl-
edge and self-struggle upon
which each of them would in-
evitably tread.
Jacob was supremely aware of
both his own failing and the
weaknessess as well as his own
accomplishments. A long life of
trial and disappointment had
taught him to be true to himself.
It was the reality of self-assess-
ment and constant self-analysis
uhirh he sought to impart to his
sons as the foundation of all bles-
sing. Jacob taught his sons that
taking stock of one's personality,
one's abilities and one's po-
tentialities, is a staggeringly
difficult task Yet it is a task
which must be accomplished if
one is to make the most of one's
life. Rather than seeming crude
or heartless, Jacob's forthright
blessing proved to be a great and
noble gift.
Coming face to face with real-
ity is a prominent and worthwhile
goal of life. And any worthwhile
goal, if ultimately achieved, can
prove to be nothing more or less
than a "blessing."
Rabbi Rotem Guest Speaker
Rabbi Mordecai Rotem will
participate in the joyous Purim
services on Mar. 8, at 7:30 p.m. in
Temple Israel's Sanctuary, 1901
North Flagler Drive, West Palm
Beach. Rabbi Rotem, the First
Israeli to complete all studies for
the Reform Rabbinate in Israel,
was ordained in 1980 by the He-
brew Union College Jewish In-
stitute of Religion in its syna-
gogue in Jerusalem.
Bom in Haifa in 1947, he
studied at the Leo Baeck School
in Haifa and credits school prin-
cipal Rabbi Robert Samuel with
influencing him toward the rab-
binate. In 1964, he went to Los
Angeles for six months under the
auspices of the Reform Move-
ment's Eisendrath International
Exchange program, where he ex-
perienced "a unique brand of
Jewish community spirit and
identity" which he felt was
lacking in Israel. Rabbi Rotem
has said that "it was at this time
that I made the most important
decision of my life; to become a
Reform rabbi in Israel."
In 1969, following military
service, the rabbi entered the He-
brew University of Jerusalem
where he was awarded a BA in
Bible and Hebrew Literature in

Rabbi Rotem has been serving
with the Or Hadash congregation
in Haifa since 1974 and has just
taken on the position of director
of the Israel Movement for Pro-
gressive (Reform) Judaism.
The Rabbi believes that not all
American Reform principles can
be successfully transplanted to
Israel, and in some instances the
Israeli movement must be more
traditional than its American
counterpart. "I'm searching for
unique Israeli ways of worship,"
he says. "I want to convince
Israelis to identify themselves as
Jews and not just Israelis. I want
to show them that they can ex-
press their Judaism in practical
terms and help make Israel a
meaningful Jewish State."
During the Purim Services at
Temple Israel, children and
adults in multi-colored costumes,
twirling noisemakers, will hear
the reading of the Megillah
(Story of Esther). Those attend-
ing are invited to meet this prom-
inent Israeli, and join Temple
members afterwards in the Social
Hall for traditional Hamantashen
:ake and punch.

Life-Saving Benefits of Low-Chole
Diet Affirmed in Rigorous Study*
AM A JO R. well-designed study has
shown more persuasively than
any previous experiment that
I eating less fats and Cholesterol
can reduce the chances of suffering a
heart attack or of dying suddenly from
heart disease. The study also showed a
smaller benefit from stopping smoking
or reducing the number of cigarettes
The study, conducted in Oslo among
more than 1.200 healthy men who had
high levels of cholesterol in their blood, is
considered by experts in the United
States to be the best evidence to date of
the life-savins value of changing dietary
habits. After live years, the men in the ex-
perimental group had a 47 percent lower
rate of heart attacks and sudden deaths
than did a comparable group of men who
served as controls.
Previous studies were mostly con-
ducted with smaller groups, among men
living in institutions or among those who
had already suffered one heart attack. In
1980. the Food and Nutrition Board of the
National Academy of Sciences concluded
that qo study had yet convincingly shown
a life-saving benefit of dietary changes
designed to reduce cholesterol levels in
the blood.
Dr. Henry Blackburn, a heart-diet ex-
pert at the University of Minnesota and a
director of several major studies in this
country, described the Norwegian study
as well designed and neatly executed. He
said that it showed for the first time the
benefits of dietary change in a large group
of ordinary noninstitutionalized men.
The Norwegian study was begun in
1972 among 1,232 men 40 to 49 years old
who were selected because they faced a
high risk of developing heart disease.
Though their blood pressure was normal,
their cholesterol levels were considered
highfrom 290 to 380 milligrams of cho-
lesterol per 100 miililiters of bloodand
80 percent of them smoked cigarettes.
An analysis of the subjects' regular
diets showed that most consumed foods
high in saturated fats and cholesterol,
which tend to raise cholesterol levels in
the blood. Prominent in their diets were
butter, sausage, high-fat cheese, eggs and
whole milk. By contrast, pcJyunsatu rated
fats, which help to lower cholesterol levels
in the blood, were infrequently consumed.
The men were then randomly assigned
either to an experimental or a control
group. The experimental group was given
guidance on stopping smoking and ad-
vised to follow a cholesterol-lowering
diet. The dietary recommendations in-
cluded the following: substitute skim
milk for whole milk, eat no more than one
eK8 week, use polyunsaturated oil for
cooking and baking, eat fruit for dessert,
make sandwiches on high-fiber bread us-
ing fish or vegetable filling or low-fat
cheese or meat, and rely on main dishes of
fish, whale meat and low-fat meat with po-
tatoes and vegetables.
No drugs were used and no recommen-
dations were made for changing exercise
habits or losing weight, which changed
only minimally in the five-year period.
Over all. five years later cholesterol
levels were 13 percent lower in the experi-
mental group, averaging 263 milligram;
per 100 milliiiters of blood as against 341
in the control group. Triglycende levels,
another risk factor in heart disease, had
also dropped substantially in the experi-
mental group, and the ratio of protective
HDL cholesterol to harmful LDL choles-
terol had risen.
Those men who experienced the great-
est drop in cholesterol levels had adhered
most closely to the dietary recommenda-
tions, according to the research team. The
team, from the Oslo Department of
Health and the Life Insurance Compa-
nies' Institute for Medical Statistics, was
directed by Dr. I. Hjermann
The team cited the consumption of less
saturated fat (mostly animal fat) as the
single most influential dietary change.
They calculated that dietary changes ac-
counted for 60 percent of the difference in
the number of heart attacks and heart
deaths suffered by the two groups of men.
Changes in smoking habits were less
dramatic, accounting for approximately
25 percent of the reduction in heart dis-
ease, the researchers said. The average
consumption of tobacco per man fell 45
percent in the experimental group, but
only 25 percent of the group completely
stopped smoking.
The researchers conceded that "if this
had been a diet trial only, the difference in
MI Imyocardial infarction, or heart at-
tack] incidence in the two groups would
probably not have reached statistical sig-
nificance." However, they added, the com-
bination of diet and smoking examines
"two important life-style factors" and is
"more relevant to usual medical prac-
The reduction in heart deaths in the ex-
fsrimental group was not accompanied
y an increase in deaths from other
causes. Some previous studies had sug-
gested that a cholesterol-lowering diet
may increase the risk of cancer. No such
effect was seen in the Oslo study, where
men in the experimental group had fewer
cancer deaths than men in the control
