proposed several programs for revitalizing and stimulat-

Passover Message From
Federation President
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Execu-
tive Committee of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County, it is with great pleasure that I extend a "Hag
Samayach" to the Jewish Community of the Palm
Each year at Passover, in every Jewish household
or wherever Jews can congregate, we retell the story of
our people's struggle for freedom, the remarkable exo-
dus from Egypt.
It matters little what Haggadah you read from
from the traditional to the most contemporary, fancy
hard cover to dog-eared soft from the Maxwell House
Coffee Company, the story remains the same. The es-
cape of the Jews from bondage is probably the best
known experience shared by Jews.
But we must pause in our celebration and remind
ourselves that the struggle is not over, that spiritual
and religious freedom is not available to all Jews, that
freedom of peace is not available to all Jews, and the
severe economic and social welfare conditions in Israel
is a plague that still exists.
As you gather around the Seder table with family
and friends, I hope it will be in good health and with
happiness and love. I know that you will, in the midst
of that shared happiness and love, reflect on and iden-
tify with those Jews whose destiny is still uncertain and
who look to us for the answers.

Vigilance Needed-Not Fear
Word seems to be spreading in this area that Arab
petrodollar interests are about to do some buying into
Florida corporations.
This is of course significantly different from the
impact upon us of Arab petrodollars used to purchase
potential vacation sites for the super-privileged along
our southeastern seaboard.
In terms of existing corporations, the fear is that
the new Arab chiefs would bring with them new Arab
policies namely discriminatory practices against
Jewish personnel.
One word of optimism here is that our fears in this
matter are self-perpetuating and contribute in no small
measure to the rumors.
But even if the rumors turn out to be true, we wel-
come the Anti-Defamation League statement last week
that reminded Florida corporate structures that it is
against the law to enter into discriminatory hiring prac-
Welcome Black Statement
One of the unhappy side-effects of the growing
Israel-Arab crunch has been the disaffection between
American Jews and Blacks because American Blacks
have tended to identify with the politically utilitarian
policies adopted by the African nations toward Israel.
And so it is good to see from time to time respon-
sible Black opinion here calling the shots on an individ-
ual basis.
This has nothing to do with the traditional ties
that Jews had hoped to maintain with Blacks on the
basis of the long-standing Jewish role in the civil rights
struggle. On the contrary, it has to do with Blacks,
themselves, who see through the sham of identification
with the Arab cause on the basis of African pragma-
The Conference of Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations this week, in its Middle East
Memo, points to an editorial in the Philadelphia Tribune
of Mar. 8.
The Tribune is a distinguished weekly serving one
of the largest Black communities in the nation.
Opines the Tribune: "'The recent disclosure that
pressure from Arab countries, particularly Saudi Ara-
bia, has caused our federal government and several
large corporations to impose a pattern of anti-Semitism
on their policies is a disgusting development that is
diametrically opposed to everything this country is sup-
posed to stand for."
We could not have put it nearly so well ourselves.
That it comes from enlightened Black American opinion,
makes it ail the more heart-warming.
An Oppressive Society
Representatives ot the New York Medical Commit-
tee on Soviet Jewry and the Greater New York Confer-
ence en Soviet Jewry met Mar. 11 with World Health
Organization officials, including Dr. Stavios Malafoto-
poulos, director of WHO liaison at the UN, to discuss
the case of Soviet Jewish endocrinologist Dr. Mikhail
The possibilities are slender here for obvious rea-
sons the UN is a captive and a puppet of Soviet
political ambition and is not likely to cross the Kremlin.
If nothing else, the meeting continues to emphasize
on the international stage ot public opinion that *he
Soviets are as oppressive a society as one is Ukriy to
find anvwhere on earth.

Charter Meeting Scheduled April 16
A group of community laymen
| has been meeting since mid-
February to form a Palm Beach
Men's ORT Chapter.
Jack Moss, past president of
Chicago Men's ORT and an of-
ficer of the American ORT Fed-
eration spoke recently at the
home of Louis Barrish to Messrs.
Irving Lassin, David Tisnower,
Leo Schwack. and Rabbi Hyman

Palm Beach Israel Bonds Drive
Passes the Million Dollar Mark
For the first time in Palm
Beach County, the sale of State
of Israel Bonds has gone over the
million dollar mark. This un-
precedented support in Palm
Beach County is due to the or-
ganization of the drive into seg-
mented campaigns.
Under the leadership of the
Palm Beach County Israel Bond
Committee Chairman Robert D.
Rapaport, the Bonds campaign
has reached these new heights in
record-breaking time during the
1974-75 season.
"Our success is due in part to
the great number of people who
have become involved in the
drive and have hosted parties and
meetinga for the sale of Israel
Bonds," said Mr. Rapaport.
The funds received through the
sale of Israel Bonds become cap-
ital investment money in Israel.
Through these investments, in-
dustry and agriculture can be as-
sisted to grow in size and eco-
nomic stability. They provide
jobs for immigrants entering
Israel from the Soviet Union and
other countries, as well as for

For the sake of illustration
Teitelbaum cited several types of
"discriminatory business con-

boycott which would be unlaw-

When an American bank, at
the request of a foreign buyer,

forms before honoring letters of
credit (the forms certify that the
ships are not carrying goods in-
cluded on the Arab blacklist, do
not belong to an Israel or "an
Israeli subject," and will not stop
at an Israeli port).
Teitelbaum noted that the Arab
boycott is as much an issue for
Floridians as it is for other
Americana throughout the coun-
try. He referred to the 1970 Saudi
Arabian blacklist released by
Sen. Frank Church, of Idaho,
which contained the names of
several Florida corporations.
HE ALSO cited the boycott re-

ments in the U.S. and speculation
that Arab investors are eyeing
opportunities in Florida.
"We fear those investments
may be used for political pur-
'jfoses and might include condi-
tions that are discriminatory to
Jews and non-Jews who refuse to
be intimidated." Teitelbaum said.
"We believe that the majority of
Americans will not submit to
that kind of blackmail."
Bernstein said the ADL had
also contacted the Florida State

We Must Feel We Were Personally Freed in Egypt
Vfr'E ARE told, in our ancient
scriptures, that "every person
in every generation must regard
himself as having been person-
ally freed from Egypt." This
means, of course, that the Jewish
Feast of Passover has a special
meaning for all Jews. It is not
merely an occasion for a family
gathering, a Seder, which is fre-
quently glorified in story and in
song. It commemorates, as a
British-Jewish scholar (Morris Jo-
seph) once wrote, "a deliverance
which transformed a horde of
slaves into a people." And if you
acknowledge that with the Exo-
dus from Egypt the Jewish nation
was established, well then. Pass-
over is the birthday of the peo-
ple of Israel.
the leading Zionist leaders and
thinkers in Palestine (before Is-
rael was born) observed about
the Haggadah and the Bible
story of the Exodus that "I am
not acquainted with a literary
creation which can evoke a great-
er contempt for slavery and love
of freedom than the narrative of
the bondage and Exodus from
Egypt. And I do not know of any
other ancient memory so entirely
a symbol of our present and fu-
ture, as the memory of the Exo-
dus from Egypt."
Rabbi Philip Goodman, in his
book, "The Passover Anthol-
ogy" (JPS). has culled the
above observations and thousands
more in a volume which, in all,
highlights the excitement, mean-
ing and overwhelming impor-
tance of Passover to the Jewish

Moses was not a warrior, nor
was he a statesman. He was, how-
ever, a prophet, and he repre-
sents all Jewish leaders who have
attempted to inspire and guide
the Jewish people.
IT WAS no wonder, then, that
when the military forces of Israel
first fought against the modern
Egyptians in Sinai In 1956, the
Jew! of Israel considered their
soldiers to !* part and parcel of
Jewish history, and that they
thought they were carrying on
the good fight begun by Moses
thousands of years ago.
The very fact that they were
in the Sinai desert the same
desert through which the chil-
dren of Israel wanderedgave a
continuity to Jewish life and
heroism. This is why 1, and mil-
lions of Jews all over the world,
reacted with such great emotion
to the Sinai war.
We instinctively related our-
selves to all Jews, past and pres-
ent, and recalled the agonies and
uncertainties and victories of
Moses and his Jews.
SO THE Passover story is both
the Sederwith its careful ritual,
its reading of the Haggadah, its
ceremonial grandeur and the
tale of Moats.
But there is another reason
why Passover is of such signifi-
cance to me in this era. The story
of Passover is woven into ths
fabric not only of the Jew as a
Jew but into the history of Israel,
which was once a distant dream
il now a reality.

Hollybrook Rental Payments j

more than 1,400 families living

"The condominium community
that offers the most in the way

A unique rental program is also
in effect at Hollybrook Golf and

percent of rental payments may
be used as down payment when
the lease expires.
"The response has been excel-

Our Jewish faith knows no
other teaching than that which
is embodied in the most sensi-

touches your hearts this night,
the simple word "brotherhood."
For why do we cling unto our
religious heritage and why do
we honor the faith of our fathers,
except that it bespeaks a guide
and rule for life on earth that
would challenge one generation
after another, to someday come
to understand that we are all
brothers, in accordance with the

for the making of them into
ideals of beauty.
Three words comprise the es-

ary genius, to be shared by all
humanity. Love. Peace and
Equality They summarise the
wisdom of all our universal teach-

Love is the first of all the com-
mandments. as scripture says,
"Thou shalt love the Lord thy
Cod with all thy heart and with
all thy soul and with all thy
mind.' and. "thou shall love thy
neighbor as thyself."
There is no love of God in
Jewish learning, except that
which is measured by your own
human acts and deeds toward fel-

o Intend to buy res **
530 doys. You shouldj^odttas.
You are about to find out
hy a tire you never heard of
the 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. It's 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 morecomiortably,
steers more preciselv and responds surer
than any other tire you can buy at any price.
We 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 if you
are not satisfied at any time within 90 days,
we will refund your purchase price 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) ol material cross under the tread at an
anfle or bus 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 of material that run around the tire
under the tread This combines a bias sidewall
with increased tread stability and improved
tread lite.
Offer the most desirable features Cords of
material run from sidewall to sidewall crossing the
tread at 90 degrees Two or more belts ol material
also run around the tire Price per tire is higher,
but cost per mil* 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-78's
and FR-78s and 7.75s all of which fit the
same car. And nylon and rayon and polyester
and fiberglass and steel. And plies on plies.
S'NC6 1924
The strongest radial is an all-steel radial.
The I.R.I, is the only all-steel radial
automobile tire.
Conventional, so-called steel radials. put steel
to work beneath the tread only. One or two
belts of steel run the circumference of the tire
and fabric or fiber cords are used radially
sidewall to sidewall. The conventional steel
radial tire is only a steel-belted radial. This is
important in understanding the superiority of
an I.R.I. All-Steel Radial.
An exclusive design and engineering process
put more steel in the I R I. radial than in any
other automobile tire. Two layers or belts of
steel cables (30 per inch) make sure the I.R.I,
tread stays open for maximum road contact
in all kinds of weather. This also reduces
friction, which is the biggest single cause of
tire wear.
A third barrier of steel cables replaces the
fabric (polyester, fiberglass, etc) used in the
sidewalls of all other automobile tires. The
result is 100 per cent steel strength and
Rated Load Range D.
I.R.I. All-Steel Radials meet government stand*
ards equivalent to an eight-ply rating and it's
stamped on the side of every I.R.I, tire. Most
passenger tires even steel-belted radials
earn only a B or four-ply rating. Load Range D
means an extra margin of strength and safety
for all vehicles, even the heaviest of luxury
automobiles, station wagons or pick-ups.
Improved steel cable design means extra
comfort, too.
The I.R.I. All-Steel Radial uses a specially
designed steel cable engineered exclusively for
us. Each cable is wound of seven strands of
fi/Mcr ram available

4. All-weather computer-designed
three-filament wire That's a total of 21 strong
steel filaments in each cable Yet. with all this
strength, the cable is as flexible as silk. The
result is a soft, luxurious ride.
The new year-'round tread.
A special computer-designed tread configura-
tion was developed to make maximum use
of the strength built into the I.R.I. All-Steel
Radial. Now. the combination of steel and
tread design provides solid, road-holding
performance under all kinds of driving
conditions wet or dry, snow or summer heat.
The I.R.I, is an all-weather, all-year tire.
Why you haven't heard about I.R.I.
All-Steel Radials till now.
Compared with the giants of the tire industry,
I.R.I is a relatively small company. We
are growing steadily on a market by-market
plan now reaching your city. Five years
ago. we set out to produce a tire that was as
good as the finest imported tire available.
Because we had no conventional tifc-making
equipment, we were free "to try anything."
We did. And came up with a totally new idea
that produced a tire even better than the one
we had set out to make The I R.I. All-Steel
Radial has been tested and re-tested. Subjected
to literally millions of miles of road-handling
experience Now it's available here. Backed by
a 50.000-mile guarantee Sold and serviced only
by proven leaders in the business.
Extra safety. Extra comfort. Extra miles.

HAIFA-BORN ind raised, a
product of Bnei Akiva. the re-

Army's pioneering corps) and

rise to political prominence has
been swift.
The NRP has been without
commanding leadership since the
death of Mosfae Haim Shapiro in
1970 and has been given to the
principle of collective direction.
The growth of support for the
"Young Guard" (now enjoying
the formal backing of 20 per cent
of party members) reflects as
much the inevitable change of
generations as it displays the
chasm between their mental out-
looks. .
Hammer and Ben-Meir draw
their support not only from the
fervent youth determined to set-
t'e in the West Bank at any and

motivated religious intellectuals
in the universities and yeshivot.
stuff of which politics, particu-
larly Israeli coalition politics,

has emerged in the NRP which
is no longer willing to go along
with the kind of previously ac

traditional NRP leadership

THEIR MOST dynamic move
came recently when the Gush
Emunim movement (one of the
key elements *n Hammers con
stituency) succeeded by their
unauthorized attempts to settle
on the West Bank in raising the
issue to an emotional pit. h which
demanded the nation's attention
and concern.
The approach of the Young
Guard is a manifestation of two

eral interpreters of the Zionist
idea have been cautioning since

ligion in the name of national

tier's Plot to Kidnap Pope is Traced to Source in Kurzman Book
rT, PH'S XII's failure to protest against the Nazi
ppmtation of Jews from the holy city of Rome
is accountable to his fear of being kidnapped by
and c the Vatican being occupied by the Ger-
und its treasures and holy relics carried off.
,1, thesis is developed with strong documentary
bther corroboration in a new book by ace re-
turned historical-novelist, Dan Kurzman, "The
for Rome," published by Doubleday and Co.
IfRZMAN, author of the popular "Genesis 1948"
foundation of the State of Israel, was formerly
ranking roving correspondent for "The Washing-
Dst." He is currently in Israel researching for hit
book, a detailed account of the Warsaw ghetto
The Race for Rome" took Kurzman three years
parch and write. While dialogue and description
kidly written, they are carefully credited in foot-
jrzman explained that he was anxious to avoid
ticism or allegations that he had "created" dia-
-as were levelled against him by some review-
"Genesis 1948," quite wrongly, he says.
THE HITI.ES plot to kidnap the Pope is authenti-
cated by interviews Kurzman conducted with SS Gen-
eral Karl Wolff, now living quietly in Germany after
serving a 20-year prison term.
Wolff recalled from his own contemporary notes
the day Hitler called him from Rome to the Nazi HQ
in September. 1943, and ordered him to prepare a plan
to occupy the Vatican and kidnap the Pope.
Wolff says today that though he obeyed the order
to plan the assault, he would never have actually car-
ried it out. Kurzman writes, too, that other top Ger-
man generals and officials serving in Italy had their
grave doubts about the wisdom of Hitler's planamong
them Ambassador Ernst von Wiezsaecker.
This, however, did not prevent the Ambassador
from pointedly hinting at the "violent reaction" that
could be expected from Hitler, both against the Jews
and against the Church, if he (the Ambassador) were
to relay to Berlin the protest which the Vatican sought
to make in October, when the SS began rounding up
the Jews of the Roman ghetto.
KURZMAN dramatically describes how a sympa-
thetic Italian Princess, Enza Pignatelli, told the Pope
at his dawn mass of the deportation of the Jews of
Rome, how the Pope expressed his shocked incredulity,
how he ordered his Secretary of State, Cardinal Mag-
tione, to protest to Germany, how the Cardinal met
with Ambassador Von Wiezsaecker with the thought
uppermost in both their minds being Hitler's known
desire to kidnap the Pope and occupy the Vatican
when, and if. the opportunity presented itself.
The Secretary of State expressed the Pope's protest
at the deportation, and then agreed to the envoy's
unprecedented diplomatic suggestion: that he not con-
vey the Papal protest to Berlin.
Pius" relations with the occupying Germans im-
proved thereafter, with the Pope asking for. and re-
ceiving, additional units of German police to guard the

Christianity, Synagogs
And the Jews Today
^ ROY ECKHARDT is a Methodist clergyman
who is a friend of Jews and Israel. His book
"Your People. My P-oplc" (New York. Quadran
gle Books. $8.95. 275 pp.) is his recent attempt
to advance Jewish-Christian understanding. The
Pooe and the Vatican secretariat would be well
advi-ed to read it.
The author traces the history of Church anti
Semitism inspired by New Testament sources and
time-- o fhe w>t-Holocausi era.
HE STRESSES that the integrity of Chris-
tianity is involved unless there is a sharp de-
viation in Christian theology and attitudes. He
appeals for Christian penitence. His chapters
Toward Authenticity" and "Deeds," are excel
lent springboards for true Jewish-Christian dia
He affirms that Christian anti-Zionism and
evenhandedness represent anti-Semitism in a new
form. He states that. "The serious danger in
preachments stressing Arab rights is a strengthen-
ing of those forces and interests that are bent
upon the destruction of the Jews of Israel* .

"The Jewish JefU" is a biography of Jesus
gleaned not so much from Christian sources as
from Jewish sources and prayers which the au-
thor asserts shaped the life of the man.
WHILE ONE can differ from much of the
Christian interpretation in the book, the render
ing of the Jewish liturgy and Aron's appeal for
the use and understanding of prayer is one that
should be heeded.
Idowu's book has many scholarly pages de-
fining religion and its study as well as a surfeit
of other definitions of religious terms. "African
Traditional Religion" does not discuss the many
different religious sects or faiths in the Dark
Continent but primarily the basics of religion and
some of the commonalities among the different
beliefs. .
THE ITALIAN theologian. Enzo Gatti. takes
the Catholic Church to task for not embracing the
poor to a much greater extent. He appeals for
Christianity to elevate deeds above litu'.
His theology is Chri-t oriented, and conse
quently his interpretations of the Bible and the
post-Jesus era are clouded by this factor.
