Protest Arab Boycott,
Bentsen Tells Leaders
Lloyd M. Bentsen (D., Tex.), who
last week announced his candi-
dacy for the Democratic nomina-
tion for the Presidency, has call
ed upon the Administration to
"speak up now" in public protest
against the serious economic
threat, to Israel posed by the
Arab economic boycott.
In remarks prepared for de-
livery at the 67th annual award
dinner of B'nai Zion. the Amer-
ican Fraternal Zionist Organiza-
tion, Bentsen stated. "Never has
Israel been more threatened
politically, militarily and eco-
HE SAID there seem to be too
few in this country whe realize
the dimensions of the economic-
threat to Israel.
"But our own experience with
inflation, recession and the Arab
oil boycott should serve to em-
phasize the fact that an economic
Syria Jews
Live In
Stephen J. Solarz (D.. N.Y.). a
member of the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee who has just re-
turned from a visit to Syria, and
three other Mideast states, said
here that the Jewish community
in Syria is living in "a state of
terror" and that Syrian Jewry is
"the most oppressed Jewish com
munitv in the world."
Addressing a press conference
called by the American Jewish
Congress. Solarz. wbo met with
Syrian President Hafez el-Assad,
declared that he brought up the
question of Syrian Jewry during
a two hour discussion with Assad
and that he (Solarz) suggested
that Assad permit a small num-
ber of Jews to leave Syria to
reunite with members of their
families in other countries.
ACCORDING to Solarz. Assail
replied negatively and said that
no member of the Jewish commu
nity would be granted permission
to leave Syria, explaining that if
Syria permitted emigration of
Jews. Syria would not be in a
position to put pressure on the
Soviet Union not to permit emi
gration of Soviet Jews to Israel.
Solarz. who is the first Jewish
Congressman to meet with Assad.
said that only after the Syrian
President personally intervenea.
was he allowed to tour the Jew-
ish ghetto in Damascus and to at-
tend service at Frange Synagogue
The Congressman said that
throughout his visit to the Jew-
ish ghetto, he was accompanied
by three Syrian government of-
ficials. He said that while he was
in the synagogue, none of the 16
men participating in the services
approached him.
HE SAID that because of the
presence of the Syrian officials.
he did not approach any of the
worshippers or ask them any
Referring to a recent program
on the CBS-TV network in which j
Syrian Jews were interviewed by I
Mike Wallace. Solarz said that j
Wallace did not "have the sen-'
sitivity to the delicacv of tht
position" of those interviewed, j
who were surrounded by Syrian
threat can be as dangerous as a
military threat to a nation's Bat-
ural security," Bentsen stated.
He said that of great concern
to him, in particular, "is the wid-
ening Arab economic boycott
against Israel I believe that it
is high time the United States
protested publicly and formally
what amounts to a state of eco-
nomic belligerence.
"No military or political settle-
ment will bring Deace to the Mid-
dle East or insure Israel's sur-
vival unless there is also a ces-
sation of the economic warfare
being waged against Israel by the
Arab nations."
BENTSKN'S address was sched-
uled for delivery to an estimated
1,600 people at the New York
Hilton Hotel who gathered to pay
tribute to Herman Z. Quittman.
B'nai Zion's executive vice presi-
dent and national secretary who
was the recipient of the 1975
America-Israel Friendship Medal
for his 40 years of service and
in recognition of his contributions
to the furtherance of the Zionist
movement, the cause of Israel
and the promotion of American
Israeli friendship.
New York State Supreme Court
Justice Abraham J. Multer. presi-
dent of B'nai Zion. presented the
medal to Quittman
Bentsen. who urged the U.S.
government to "speak up now
and address itself not iust to the
military situation but al-o to the
equally serious economic threat
against Israel." also urged the
Arab nations, in .articular Egyp-
tian President Anwar Sadat, "to
make a concrete showing of good
ASSERTING that "promises of
nonbelligerency are meaning
less." and noting that history is
full of wars originating in non
aggression pacts, the Senator de-
"Let President Sadat prove his
good intentions by developing an
economic relationship with Israel.
Why not start slowly, gradually
with cultural exchange, with edu-
cational exchange'' Why not con-
tinue with Cairo-Tel Aviv air
service, a lifting of customs res-
trictions against those who have
travelled to Israel""
During the medal award cere
mony. messages of greeting- to
Quittman came from President
Ford Vice President Nelson A.
Rockefeller. Israeli President
Kphraim Kat7ir. Premier Yltxhak
Rabin and New York Gov Hugh
I. Carey.
Katzir Confers With
Ford In Capital
WASHINGTON(JTA)Israeli President Ephraim
Katzir met with President Ford at the White House in
an "informal visit" as part of his first trip to the United
States as Israel's head of state.
Katzir thanked the President and the American
people for the assistance Israel receives from the U.S.
which he said allows Israel to look forward to peace.
FORD RESPONDED that current U.S. policy and
his own policy when he was a Congressman are the
same. He pledged that the aid is aimed at helping make
a strong Israel since the Jewish State is not only a
friendly country but also an ally.
The two leaders also discussed the next stage in the
search for Mideast peace and reviewed Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger's recent and current trip to
the area.

Question Box
Why is a Jew forbidden to
have any leavening or leav-
ening products in his home
during Passover week?
The Bible (Exodus 12:17) ex-
pressly forbids this.
Some commentaries indicate
that this represents the Exodus
from Egypt in the sense that the
Jews left in such a hurry they
could not wait for the dough in
their bread to be leavened.
Others claim that one might
be tempted to eat leavening or
leavened products if they were
to be found in the home. In addi-
tion, leavening has been consid-
ered symbolic of undesirable
Some say that it represents a
sense of pride and haughtiness
because it makes the dough rise
and inflates it to a larger size
than it really is. During Passover,
a Jew should be humble enough
to remember that his ancestors
were once slaves in Egypt.
Others say that the leavening
has a souring effect and, thus,
represents a a sense of antag-
onism and revenge. Jewish memo-
ries of the enslavement in Egypt
are not supposed to bring about
a feling of desire for revenge.
The Jew is supposed to be
thankful for tthe Almighty's in-
tervention ahd should not seek to

own history of oppression. There
are some who claim that leaven-
ing represents stern judgment
and a Jew understands that judg-
ment must be tempered with
Why is a roasted egg placed
n the Seder plate on Pass-
Some claim that this repre-
sents the general festival sacri-
fice which was roasted (chagi-
Others claim that the shape of
the egg, which is round and
which represents eternity, caused
it to be used on the Seder plate.
Such an egg is eaten by mourners.
Since the first day of Passover
falls on the same day of the week
as the Fast of Tisha B'Ab and the
latter commemorates the destru.?
tion of the Temple, the joy of the
Passover is tempered with the re
minder of the destruction of the
Temple. Hence, the egg is used
like it is in mourning.
There are also those who claim
that the egg is eaten because it
indicates the coming of a new era,
jujst as the egg represents the
birth of a new life. There is a
tradition that the Messiah will
come during the Passover month,
bringing in the new era. Thus, the
egg is placed on the plate in an-
ticipation of the new era.
Some claim also that the egft
represents the resistance of the
Jewish people to destruction. The
more an egg is boiled in water, the
harder it gets. Likewise, the more
the Jew is subjected to suffering,
the tougher he becomes.
Indeed, the oppression of th
Jew which was intended to destroy
him. has, on the contrary, actually
strengthened his convictions and
toughened his endurance. Hence,
the egg is placed on the Seder

Making Words Meaningful
This is all about boycotts the Arab boycott of
American business enterprises that have Jews* on their
staffs, the Arab boycott of Jewish personnel in the
American armed forces who are forbidden to work on
Army Engineering projects in the Arab countries, the
Arab boycott of Jewish banking institutions in America
and abroad that have been invited out of business deals
with the Arab nations on the basis that somehow these
deals help Israel.
President Ford, in Hollywood last week, described
these Arab practices as odious and unAmerican and
declared that as a nation we would not tolerate them.
Still, the State Department insists that quiet di-
plomacy, not confrontation, is the answer. At least this
is what Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Harold
Saunder told the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommit-
tee on Multinational Corporations.
The truth is that the Arab boycott has been dealt
with quietly all too long. It began with the Arab League
boycott of Israel and of enterprises doing business with
Israel almost from the beginning of Israel's existence.
In the beginning, the boycott was ineffective. To-
dav, it hurts.
-.v &
A Monolithic State Dejrt.
Were we silent on the basis of principle or expedi-
ency? Are we now more angered by the principle be-
cause it works better than it did before?
-Whatever the answers to these questions, the sud-
den shift in American Jewish emphasis to pursue the
Arab boycott for what amounts to the first time does
not match the State Department's position, which re-
mains monolithically unchanged.
In fact, the government is now admitting that even
its own agencies have given in to Arab demands.
As Sen. Frank Church (D., Idaho) has put it
Americans must come to know that the Arabs are im-
posing a pattern of anti-Semitism "on our country."
What is worse, American agencies, acting "with our
money," are acquiescing.
President Ford's statement in Hollywood was ad-
mirable. Now let's see the administration do something
about it. B

"This means a greater need for

Gottschalk "therefore we must

A manifestation of this smaller
group spirit in Reform Judaism
can be seen with the increasing
number of havurota small unit,
usually within the orbit of the
congregation, where people guid-
ed by experts develop their own
worship and study programs. It
is estimated that within Reform
Judaism there are 300-400 such
groups throughout the country.
'Those young oeoole are vital-

"Israel has aided immeasurably
in providing this survival spark.
At their moment of need, we in
the leadership ranks of Reform
Judaism must not fail them."

to be celebrated by world Jewry,

The selection of a lamb, its
tedious care for three days, and
finally its sacrificial blood mark-
ed on the doorposts of their
homes gave each Israelite an op-
portunity to take an active role

only those who participated
in this religious rite were privi-

its rebirth in a similar manner

next 30 days, you
You are about to find out
hy a tire you never heard of
i-Vie best tire for these times
Radically new. Radically different.
The only radial with steel sidewalls.
The I R I All-Steel Radial is the world s first
all-steel radial tire for automobiles Its the
most economical tire you can own Because of
the radial design, you get more miles per gallon
of gas than from either bias or belted bias
tires Because of the exclusive I R I All-Steel
construction, you get thousands of extra miles
out of the tire itself We believe the result
is the lowest cost per mile of driving from any
kind or any brand of tire on the market today.
Our engineers believe the I.R I All-Steel
Radial drives safer, rides more comlortably,
steers more precisely and responds surer
than an> other tire you can buy at any price
\Ve guarantee them for 50,000 miles. What's
more, Norton is so sure you'll find these
the finest tires you've ever had that i! i
are not satisfied at any time within 90 days,
we will refund your, purchase pries in full.
No tricks. No hidden charges.
But, boil it all down and
you've got three basic
tire types to consider.
Two. four or sometimes even more plies (or
layers) of material aoss under the tread at an
angle or bias to the center line of the tire. Generally
the cheapest tire to buy
Similar to the bias tire with the addition of two
or more belts ol material that run around the tire
under the tread This combines a bias sidewail
with increased tread stability and improved
tread lite.
Otter the most desirable features Cords of
material run from sidewall to sidewall crossing the
tread at 90 degrees Two or more belts of material
also run around the tire Price per tire is higher,
but cost per mile is lower.
Buying tires is tough enough.
You almost need an engineer's education to
understand tire advertising these days There
are bias and belted and radial types F-7J s
and FR-78 s and 7 75 s all of which fit the
same car And nylon and ravon and polvestcr
and fiberglass and steel And plies on plies.

The strongest radial is an all-steel radial.
The I.R.I, is the only all-steel radial

belts of steel run the circumference of the tire
and fabric <: libel cords are used radially

radial tire is only a steel-belled radial. This is
important in understanding the superiority of
an I.R.I. All Steel Radial.

How did the Minyan come

liet -tates.
In the Reform ritual women

liorm of ten persons to consti-
lite a public prayer service since

[ita men. and the conservative

kample. The Talmud derives 10

which in the scriptures is
pplied to the ten spies (Num.
1:27). Thus ten men constitute

ncyclopaedia Judaica states. The
ilmud also mentions Ruth 4:2
1 Psalms 68:27. Some relate the
|i to Abraham's plea to God
ave Sodom if at least ten
ghteous men were found there
Jen. 18:32). On the basis of
(alms 82:1: "God standeth in
je congregation of God," the
lmud explains that if ten men
Ny together the Divine Pres-
f'ce is with them. This quorum
ten adult males is necessary

males are present. A quorum of
ten is also necessary in the rites
of comforting the mourners. The
recital of the seven nuptial bless-
ings at wedding ceremonies and
the special invocation preceeding
grace also require a minyan, the
Encyclopaedia Judaica says.
Ten male adults constitute a
quorum in any place, and there
is no need for a synagogue build-
ing or an officiating rabbi to
hold divine services. In talmudic
times a community was regarded
as "a city" if there were at
least "ten idle men" (not occu-
pied by work or other duties)
who could come to each syna-
gogue service to make up the
minyan. R. Johanan said "when
God comes to a synagogue and
does not find a minyan there, He
is angry; as it is written. (Isa.
50:2). "Wherefore, when I came,
was there no man? When I call-
ed, was there none to answer?"
In traditional congregations, es-
pecially in Eastern Europe, when
it was difficult to hold daily serv-
ices with a minyan, it was cus-
tomary to pay a few old or idle
men to be Dresent twice a day
at the services. These people
were called "minyan men."
Incidentally, the number "ten"
in the Bible expresses complete-
ness and perfection, and its sa-
cred character is exemplified in
the Decalogue. There are ten
patriarchs from Adam to Noah
(Gen. 5) and ten from Noah to
Abraham (Gen. 11:10-27). and
the Israelites Dut the Lord to test
ten times (Num. 14:22).

Brothers From
Russia Undergo
Circumcision Rite
Two brothers. Misha. 14. and
Sasha, 10. Umansky. brought to
Miami from Russia a mere 11 ,
months aeo. in-ited that th?ir
parents have them drcumdaed
so that they will be like their
American Jewi.-h friends.
The Rite of Circumdsion
(Brith Millah) is prohibited in
Russia by governmental decree
as a means of destroying Juda-
Hence. Micha 'Michael) and
Sasha (Alex) were denied the
Brith Millah.
AS A result of the brothers'
desire to have themselves circum-
cised, both of them were ini-
tiated into the Covenant of
Abraham last week at the Os-
teopathic General Hospital.
Rev Aron Ben Aron and Nor-
man Richman, of Ahavat Shalom
Congregation, of southwest Mi-
ami, asked Dr. Leon Suissa (also
a Mohel) to make arrangements
for the Brith.
In attendance were Dr. Suissa,
Dr. Wynne Steinsnyder and Rab-
bi L. Battan. a Mohel. of Shearith
Yisrael of New York.
The minyon included Jewish
doctors and interns in their hos-
pital garb. After the ceremony,
the participants retired to an of-
fice and partook of wine and
cake, completing the Simcha of
the Brith Millah
The doctors and the hospital
donated their services, making
this Rite of Circumcision possible
for Misha and Sasha.

Poet Spender Sees No New Holocaust
Continued from Page 4-
The Arabs, be argustr ^rwm
of returning to the period of
their past historic glory."
Now let us assume, the assump-
tion here being mine, that the
Christians, who fought and lost
to Saladin in a stand-off at the
gates of Jerusalem, are willing
to concede another "technical"
defeat in the Holy Land (the
destruction of an Israel they leg-
islated into being) provided they
achieve another triumph on their
own home grounds in the west.
THEIR FIRST triumph was
the Moorish withdrawal from
Spain and southern Europe gen-
Their second would be what
Spender means by the allaying of
"the evident fear of the western
world of having its oil resources
cut off and having to reduce its
standard of living."
The trade-off in the western
Christian mind is obvious and
profitable: Israel sacrificed for
the continued flow of oil; Israel
sacrificed for ultimate Arab
hegemony throughout the Mid
IN EACH case, the Christian
west sees good business. It
would be giving up what does
not belong to the Christian west
to give up anyway; it would be
receiving in return what the
Christian west believes belongs
to il on the basis of the pragmatic
principle of utility
But. argues Spender, the Arabs
"don't hate the Israelis so much
because they are Jews as they
despise them btCMUfl they are
not Moslems "
Declares Spender: "What they
(the Arabs) really want is for
others to admit the superiority of
the Moslem faith "
THE ARABS, he concludes,
"can tolerate Christians and Jews
. provided they admit their
inferiority to Moslems."
So much. then, for the anti
Semite who these days is increas-
ingly thrilled by the prospect of
trading Jews for oil. In his will-
ingness to trade away Jews,
Spender would have us under-
stand, he must also be prepared
to trade away himself.
Moslem leaders in the Middle
East do not have a common cause
with western Christians in their
n.utual hatred of Jews, as so many
western Christians would have
everyone believe. The Moslem
leaders' common cause is his
hatred of the west. Jew and
Christian, whom they regard as
fen forces in their midst and
who will ultimately be engulfed
in the desert sands as once wore
the Crusaders themselves
SPENDER TAKES his argument
lie Itep further, and '.hat is in
the area .^f Jewish-Christian Mos-
! in religious leeling for the Holy
Christians. :it least in modern
times, never teemed to have
.-irong feelings about "alien'' oc
eupation of Jerusalem until the
lew occupied it.
Thereafter, like sanctimonious
tea kettles, thoy began to steam
over an "internationalised Holy
Citjr" open to all faiths. (When
under Jordan, it was barred to
the Jews, yon never heard a peep
out of them '
who know nothing of Jerusalem
or Jews or I-rael. but who r

nalistic expedienrv. delight in

their-toea aewsoapers about the
agony of Jerusalem under J"v
rule, when after all I g js
the City of Peace, as if the Jew-
know nothing about that, onlv
having named it that themse'
thousands of years ago.
But. argues Spender who is
not one of this odious breed of
reporter. "Jerusalem was never
a capital under Islam. Nor was it
under Persian, Greek. Roman or
Ottoman rule. But it was a cap-
ital for the Jews ."
AND SO is it today. And that
is why the western world, prepar-
ing as it is to attempt a betrayal
of Israel, believes that Israelis,
supported by Jews everywhere,
are settling in for another Holo
caust a perhaps heroic but never-
theless futile Masada in defense
of a lost Israeli cause.
Isn't this precisely what Bridge
said in his article in the "Na
tional Observer"
Not true, argues Spandor. Tba
mood in Israel, as he reads it. is
nothing like that of a coni;n-
Masada If anytning. the mood
is "of Samson pulling down th
pillars of the temple, shoaid it
come to that.
Whatever happens, reports
Spender from Israel, "two things
remain constant: Israel exists,
and there will be no repetitions
of the Holocaust."
THE WEST willhave to pay
for such a betrayal in the cur

lack of convictions and the ab-
sence of its Christie principles,
the wejt wil have to pay in th
currency of blood.
The sacrifice. Spender sug-
gests, will not be Israel's aline.
'Buy Israel' Campaign Being

the Buy Israel office organized
exhibits and tasting parties in
Jewish communities and organi-
zations (Hadassah. B'nai B'rith.

The Buy Israel office has been
sked to include an exhibit of

AFTER THE Council's news conference had ended at the
Madison Hotel, the JTA reporter. Joseph Polakoff, went to the
dais to obtain additional comments.
Alkhimov and Polakoff, who had met two years ago at the
conference arranged by the National Association of Manufac-
turers on the same subject, shook hands and Alkhimov responded
briefly to a Question and then moved to the end of the dais to
speak with other reporters.
Polakoff started to join that group when Kendall pushed him.
Polakoff protected the pushing and Kendall put his hands on
Polakoff's shoulders.
Polakoff demanded he remove his hands which Kendall did,
but he thrust himself against Polakoff in a confrontation and
demanded to know "how old are you?''

There are seme rabbis who are urging the launch-
ing of a Jewish missionary movement, actively to bring
non-Jews into the faith.
ONE OF them is a distinguished rabbi who has
done much work for the American Jewish community.
He is Dr. Max Eichhorn, for many years on the staff
of the Jewish Welfare Board and now.'In retirement,
ministering to a congregation in Satellite Beach, Fll.
Dr. Eichhorn has just written a startling book
which I urge you to read. It's called "Jewish Inter-
marriages: Fact and Fiction," and you can get it from
your own synagogue library.
IN THE book. Rabbi Eichhorn has packed many of
his own ideas about the issue of intermarriage and also
an enormous amount of intriguing data which he has
accumulated over the course of several decades.
As Rabbi Bertram Korn writes in the preface of
this book, the volume gives us a chance to observe a
man "struggling for truth and human dignity."
You won't have to struggle to read the book; it'll
be a delight.
[TIME honored pHrase, "next year in Jerusalem," is a stir-
portion of the Passover Seder. It reminds us of Israel's
v in Jewish life and its importance in the Jewish con-
vas with this in mind that the American Association for
tducation. in keeping with its philosophy to 'contemporize'"
Lchool curricula, published an innovative series of class-
es which presented divergent views on major issues con-
HI NO little trepidation. There were fears that the 10-
Idy program, titled Viewpoint, might be a bit too daring
Jewish hi^h school audience at which it was aimed.
Ison: Its content touched on such thorny problems as state
controversies, the "rights" of Palestinian refugees, and
priorities should be set between immigrant absorption
ring the standard of living of Israel's deprived peoples.
tEOVER, the series has been employed in Jewish can ps
|lt study groups, utilized in Catholic parochial schools and
!it uf its texts included in the New York City Board of
pn's Approved Textbook list for use in social studies courses
ii{jh schools.
}ch only means that Viewpoints is achieving what it set out
present a balanced selection of fact and commentary on
jrary issues facing Israel, rather than advocate categorical
Jan approaches to various areas of study.
AAJE selected this format, because young people will no
rcccpt dogmatic, force-fed conclusions from an adult es-
ent whose authority they're prone to challenge and whose
(rightly or wrongly, they frequently find suspect.
AS the average teenager would question the legitimacy

series draws on religious, historic, cultural, sociological

exclusively "oast-centered"
THIS reason Viewpoints can be used effectively by the

"Israel on the World Scene," which analyses the foreign
Jons and potential future alternatives of Israel and
pons as related to the Middle East; "Coming of Age in
rhich presents a selective tableau of Israel youth from
^thnic, economic and religious backgrounds; and "The
te and the Jewish Religion," which surveys the issues
lets arising from the endeavor to establish a modern
k state based on precepts of Jewish law and tradition.
i "The Arab Minority." which probes the problems con-

ibute to these attitudes; "Swords Into Ploughshares
War and Peace." which explores Jewish ethical con-
rds warfare and non-violence as they apply to Israel's
onduct, and "Allyah." which describes Jewish immigra-
ol in all of its aspects.
AS Passover remains relevant and meaningful to the
tople more than 3,000 years after the Exodus, so the

Hildesheimer To
Encourage Aliya
New York. NY-Yitzchak Hil-
desheimer, Secretary General of
the World Eira Youth Movement,
arrived last week from Kibbutz
Sha'alvim, in order to encourage
Aliya of families and voung or-
thodox people to Kibbutzim of
Poale Agudath Israel and especi-
ally to Kibbutz Sha'alvim.
Mr. Hildesheimer. who serves
also as News Editor of the Israeli
daily newspaper. "Shearim," said
almost 40 families have alreadv
applied to join Kibbutz Sha'al-
vim. Some of them are already
living there. Besides this, many
young people over the age of 18
have applied to join the next
Ulpan in Kibbutz Sha'alvim.
which starts Aug. 20.
Inquiries about the above proj-
ect can be addressed to Mr. Hil
desheimer at Poale Agudath Is-
rael, 15tf-5th Ave., New York,
NY.. Room 811.
Mr. Hildesheimer will also try
to encourage families to join the
Moshav of Modi'in ia the area of
Ben Gurion Airport.
"I believe that in this period,
when Aliya is at a low point, it
is the task of orthodox Jewish
people to do their utmost to en-
courage young religious people
and families to set an example
and go on Aliya and especially
to join the Orthodox Kibbutzim
and Moshavim." he said.

I've had several requests lately for a banana cake which is
pareve (non-dairy) and which uses no fruit juice. This is one
my family enjoys.
1 stick of margarine 4 tsps. baking powder
1 cup of sugar 1 cup liquid non-dairy
2 eggs creamer
3 mashed bananas Vt cup chocolate chips
24 cups flour (optional)
1 tsp. baking soda
Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs and mashed bananas.
Mix. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder and creamer. Mix
well. (Add chocolate chips, if desired.) Pour into greased 9 x 13-
inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until cake tests
out as done.
With increased costs driving bakery prices ud, more house-
wives are baking at home. You might want to try baking this
puffy kichel recipe. It has an added bonus: not much sugar is

Many women have never tried their hands at making
knishes, that traditional, steaming hot. melt-in-your-moufh con-
coction of dough aad scrumptious filling. Too difficult, many
think, too much "potchkerei." We'l ladie*. fear no longer. Making
knishes isn't all that awesome, and I have for you this week a
recipe which I believe vou and your familv will enjoy.
Dough: '2 cup plus 1 tblsp. oil
3 oint flour 2 eggs
3 tblsps. sugar H cup lukewarm water
'* tsp. (scant) salt
Sift dry ingredients together Put in bowl and mix well;
add eggs, oil and water. Mix until dough leaves sides of bowl
and then roll very thin on floured board.
Filling: Margarine to taste
Mix together: Salt and pepper to taste
4 mashed potatoes (hot) 2 fried onions (rhooped)
2 eegs 1 tblso narslev flakes
Divide the dough into two parts and roll as thin as possible.
Cut the rolled dough into 3-inch circles. Place a tablespoon of
the potato mixture on each. Draw the edges together and pinch
