Urges Israel
As Guideline
--A leader of the National Asso-
ciation for the Advancement of
Colored People stated that black
African nations must learn that
they can derive greater bene-
fits from the democratic prin-
ciples of Israel than by merely
identifying with the Arab states
because of a color affinity.
Clarence Mitchell, director of
the NAACP's Washington bu-
reau, told members of the board
of trustees of the Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions that "the emerging na-
tions of the world must under-
stand that no future exists in
trying to base relationships with
people purely on race or color.
After all, that's what got us all
in a whole lot of trouble with
"we must make clear to the
black African nations that there
is no solace in identifying with
the Arabs purely because of
race. There are many black
racists in America whose in-
terests do not coincide with
blacks here."
He stated that "while I am
not trying to discredit the'
Arabs, we must continue to
emphasize the message that in1
today's world you must act on
principle, not racial considera-

The AJCongress also at-

that the devastation of Ku-

and to approve its suggestion
that, as a resolution to the "in-

having recently existed under
substantial terror in Syria could

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
A Real 'Reassessment'
We won't really know anything concrete for several
days, if then, about the discussions between Premier
Rabin and President Ford in Washington.
Both the President and Secretary of State Kissinger
have repeatedly assured the American people that the
administration has not yet come to any specific conclu-
sions vis-a-vis its "reassessment" of our nation's foreign
policy in the Middle East.
For all of their assurances, as we noted last week
in this column, Ford's meeting with Egypt's President
Sadat in Salzburg suggested otherwise that not only
had the administration already arrived at a full "reas-
sessment," but that it had done so in partnership with
Sadat himself.
In this sense, we would have to conclude what no
decent American would care to conclude: that President
Ford's meetings with Premier Rabin this week were
mere formalities designed to give Rabin the "word."
which is to say the price in further concessions Israel
will have to make for some kind of interim peace agree-
ment, an arrangement all Israeli parties and personali-
ties have alreadv ruled out.
He Meeds an Education
Toon then volunteered to oppose earlier testimony
by Daniel P. Moynihan, the new U.S. Ambassador to
the United .Nations, who has said the U.S. should take
a strong public stand against any Arab attempt to expel
Israel from the UN General Assembly. Toon, like his
boss. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, prefers
quiet diplomacy.
Finally, and most astonishingly, Toon refused to
answer a question in the presence of the "Israeli press,"
looking at the Washington Bureau chief of the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency.
It may be correct to send an ambassador to an area
that he knows nothing about. But Toon obviously needs
some quick education, something he will probably re-
ceive when he finally meets the real Israeli press in
Tel Aviv and Jerusalem not an American newsman,
whom he has cavalierlv dismissed as "Israeli."
Toon's Sour Notes
Malcolm Toon, who has been nominated as Ambas-
sador to Israel to replace the late Kenneth Keating,
sounded some sour notes in his first public statements
on the Middle East. His remarks to the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee may be evidence that the Ford
Administration is still taking a harsh line with Israel.
Even before Toon's nomination was publicly an-
nounced, the State Department leaked that he was a
hard-line career diplomat who had no ties to either side
in the Israeli-Arab dispute. In fact, almost his entire
diplomatic career has been in the Soviet Union and
other East European countries.
Testifying before the Senate committee, Toon first
proceeded to misquote the Vladivostok communique be-
tween President Ford and Soviet Communist Party Sec-
retary Leonid Brezhnev last November. He said the
communique had provided for "the legitimate interest
and aspirations of the Palestinian people," even though
the word "aspirations" had not been used.

I cannot explain this defect
in me. hut I must also confess
that over the years, there have
been moments of redemption-
occasions when for one reason
or another I have been forced
to go to see a play and found

ticular fondness.
Now there is "Equus.'' also at
the Grove, and despite my de-
termination to loathe it. I went
away thoroughly delighted.
"Equus" is by no means in
the same category as "Sleuth''
or "Rosenkranz and Guilden-
stern are Dead.'" But what it
misses in inventiveness and in
the brilliant use of the English
language, it makes up with en-
thusiasm and. in the Grove pro-
duction, with unexpectedly fine
IN THE sense that we are
going through a trying time, and
that we have seized upon scnti-
mentalism as the dope for our
pain, "Equus" is a sentimental
escape to a simpler time when
men hoped that Freudian psy-
chotherapy might exorcise all
their devils their own and
those of their civilization.
That this is a long time ago
is manifest by what has come
after. Freudianism has not only
disappointed us to the extent

Freud, himself, would best pre-

The psychiatrist Martin Dy-

confronted with an oedipal case,

Freud to his classical origins,

taken into consideration if
there is to be hope for a cure.
NO. WE are never given

Los Angeles Times Syndicate
House of Representatives is
launching a study commission
on the family, to discover (as
one report puts it) "what is
breaking up American homes
and leading young people
If they find out. we'd all like
to know. Nothing I have seen in
the vast sociological literature
on the family enables us to
answer this question with
enough assurance to base a leg-
islative program on it, as the
very intelligent Miami Demo-
crat, Rep. Elaine Bloom, wants
to do.
ITS QUITE an order. The
trouble is that when the com-
mission has discovered the
bearing of alcoholism and infi-
delity on divorce, there will
have to be another study com-
mission to discover why alco-
holism is spreading and how it
can be cured, and still another
to discover what causes infi-
delity and why it is spreading
and how it can be cured.
Ditto for the earthquake erup-
tion of sexuality and violence

nography; ditto for permissive-
ness in the home; ditto for
gender confusion and values

how much a state legislative

A Report To The Community.
Review Of Federation's Year

(Taken from the presentation made at the Annual Meeting
of the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County)
Last June, I forecast to you a productive 1974-75 year
for Federation. In view of the tremendous predicted growth
of our community, our executive committee, new executive
director, and hoard of directors took action. Existing pro-
grams were re-examined and strengthened, and we inves-
tigated and initiated new areas of service.
Our Committee on Commu-
nity Relations, under the chair-
manship of Henry Grossman
enlarged its membership and
scope, and d tali with issues of
domestic affairs, international
Jewry, and anti-otiiiitism.
The Community Pre-School,
with Staci Lesser as chairwom-
an, is an on g.iing program of
depth and satisfaction. The sur-
roundings of Camp Shalom en-
hance the school's effective-
ness. At the request of parents,
the kindergarten program was
Charles Jacobson and his be-
hind-the-scenes Camp Commit-
tee opened the 1974 summer at
Camp Shalom with over 100
youngsters waiting to join the
day camp program. The 1975
season again has a record en-
rollment, plus a new junior-
high camp program.
The Jewish Community Fo-
rum, chaired by Dr. Sherwin
Isaacson, brought outstanding
speakers to overflow crowds for
the tenth year.
Federation continued to
reach a large segment of Jew-
ish and non-Jewish audiences
with the Sunday TV program,
"Our People" with Tootsie New-
man, and "Your Jewish Com-
munity," moderated by Rabbi
Sheldon Harr.
"Our People" will continue
this summer, utilizing as hosts
Barbara Shulman, Rabbi Harr
and Dr. Josephson. Our talented
past president. Steve Gordon, is
directing and planning the
show, and we anticipate 52
weeks of TV coverage.

Thousands March
In Gotham Parade
For Israel Fete
NEW YORK (JTA) Thousands of young people
marched along Fifth Avenue in warm and sunny weather
here in the llih annual "Salute to Israel-' parade declaring
that Israel will survive despite acts of terrorism against her
and that the Jewish people are united as one.
According to Robert H. Arnow, a parade co-chairman,
an estimated 250.000 persons lined up along the 15-block
An independent check by the JTA with police officials
at the parade confirmed the figure. The event, sponsored
by the American Zionist Youth Federation, marked Israel's
27th anniversary.
THE response to terrorism
was a strong theme in this
year's march. The "Am Kchad"
theme float carried five high
school students from Maalot.
Kiryat Shemona, Bet Shean.
Shlomi and Safad. all develop-
ment towns which were targets
of terrorist attacks.
They were preceded by a
group of American Jewish high
school students carrying a ban-
ner saying, "We welcome our
sisters and brothers from Is-
rael." A group of youngsters
from the East Midwood Jewish
Center of Brooklyn wearing
gceen and white gowns, carried
flowers in memorial of terrorist
Kollek, a special guest of the
parade, said he was bringing
greetings to the 'greatest Jew-
ish city in the world from the
world's oldest Jewish city."
He said the spectators and
marchers were giving support
to Israel. "Jerusalem will re-
main united," he declared. "Is-
rael will live." Kollek said Israel
and the Arabs can live together
as was demonstrated in Jeru-
salem for the past eight years.
But, he said, if Israel had to de-
fend herself, she would.
Mayor Abraham Beame of
New York, expressed similar
sentiments, declaring that peo-
ple of this city supported Israel
in her desire to achieve peace.
He said it is possible for the
Arab states and Israel to live
together, but if Israel is attacked
and has to fight back "we in
New Yerk City will continue to
give our support that Israel may
live." One of the participants
summed the significance of the
parade up when he said, "It is
really a rally to get all Amer-
icans behind Israel."
Israeli Ambassador Simcha Di-
nitz, United Nations Ambassa-
dor Yosef Tekoah. and Israel
Consul General in New York.
David Rivlin.
Beame and Kollek marched
side by side at the front of the
parade flanked by New York
City area Congressmen, city and
state officials.
Most of the marchers were
high school students from Jew-
ish schools and youth organiza-
tions as well, as marching bands
from public high schools and
Catholic parochial high schools.
There were also participants
from various Jewish police or-
ganizations as well as a bagpipe
band from the Emerald Society
of the New York Transit Police.
Many of the marchers sang
Hebrew songs and wore color-
ful costumes. There were many
imaginative floats.
THE BOARD of Jewish Edu-
cation float's theme was from
Leviticus: "And teach the child
of Israel." One group dressed in
Hasidic garb stressed, "One
Torah, One Nation." There was
a giant shofer on one float
whose sound reverberated
through the area. One float
showed religious Jews at the
Western Wall.
Many of the floats and ban-
ners carried anti-Arab themes.
One float denouncing the United
Nations had the words: "Today
the oil, tomorrow the world."
Another group carried giant gas
station gasoline tanks, the ones
at the front reading "67.9" and
the back "31.9." These referred
to the steep price increase in

Even the Likud opposition,
which not surprisingly register-
ed disapproval, was divided
over how vehement its objec-
tions should be.
A STRONG statement flatly
rejecting Rabin's move, advo-
cated by Likud's militant Herut
wing, was toned down by more
moderate elements in the party
to one of opposition on grounds
that a unilateral move by Israel
was not justified as long as
Egypt bars Israeli cargoes from
the reopened waterway.
Even that was too strong for
some Likud MKs. Avraham

Akiva Noff. of the Free Center,
voted against it. Shmuel Tamir!

was the strong denunciation of

March because his outspokenly

Why don't Jews kneel at
Kneeling in prayer was prae-
tised during the biblical period,
and specific reference to it can
be found in the Bible, e.g. Dan-
iel 6:11. Ezra 9:5. During the
period of the Second Temple it
was also characteristic of the
Temple service, and the Mish-
nah prescribes the 13 acts of
prostration which had to be per-
formed by those visiting the
Temple. In addition, during the
Avodah on the Day of Atone-
ment, as soon as the high priest
mentioned the Ineffable Name
of God. all those present pros-
trated themselves, the authori-
tative Encyclopaedia Judaica
The abolition of kneeling in
prayer by Jews is one of the
interesting examples of a cus-
tom's abolition simply because
it had become characteristic of
the forms of worship evolved by
other religions. The Muham-
medan custom of removing
one's shoes for prayer led to its
abolition as a Jewish form of
reverence, and kneeling as an
essential form of Jewish wor-
ship, the E/J explains, was
abolished w hen it asi >
cl with the Chi
i he rationale was found by
interpreting the verse of Lev.
26:1 to mean that it was : >-
bidden to kneel or pr<
oneself on any stone floor, with
the exception of the floor of the
Temple. As a result, although
the Aleinu prayer which con-
cludes every service has the
specific phrase, "and we bend
the knee and prostrate our-
selves." etc.. the act of bowing
is not generally practised.
Nevertheless, the Kncyclo-
paedia Judaica reports, there
are two exceptionsthe act of
prostration in the Synagogue
during the Aleinu praver of the
Musaf service on Rosh Ha-
Shanah and Yom Kippur. and
during the recital of the Avodah
on Yom Kippur. The custom of
prostration during Aleinu. says
the Judaica. was introduced be-
cause of the solemnity of the oc-
casion, while with regard to the
Avodah its purpose was to re-
capture as far as possible the
spirit of the solemn service on
that day when the Temple stood,
so as to keep alive the memory
of the Temple.

geographically, economically,
sociologically, etc. But I shall
use a simple division of putting
optimists in one camp and pes-
simists in the other.
The optimists, in order to
prove that the prognosis of
American Jewish life is good,
usually point to such phe-
nomena as the proliferation of
Judaic Studies programs, the
new air of respectability
achieved by Hebrew Day
Schools, the trend to tradition
and Jewish identification on the
part of many who formerly had
only a marginal affiliation with
Judaism, and the intense loyal-
ty of American Jews to Israel.
The pessimists, on the other
hand, will cite the rate of inter-
marriage which has reached
alarming proportions, Jewish
illiteracy, the disastrous failure
of the after-school Talmud
Torahs. the inanity of many
Jewish organizations, the apathy
of many young people who are
not at all turned on by Judaism
Both camps uco statistics to

H MEN based their work on Herzl's
diaries. Both men explode myths about their
suoject. Herzl did not come from an orthodox
home; he did not have a yeshiva training, he
came to an appreciation of anti-Semitism long
before the Dreyfus case; he knew about Zion-
ism from his youth. He learned about it from
his grandfather who spoke of the b^pliardi
Rabbi Alkali who preached about a return to
the Holy Land in 1840.
"HEKZL HAD a personal need to be a
messiah-savior-political leader," according to
Lowenberg as revealed by Herzl himself. He
wrote plays because he required adulation.
"He was a lonermasterful, narcissistic
independent." He found his greatest support
from the masses of poor Russian Jews whom
he had formerly ignored. His approaches to
the great European rulers failed to achieve
his gaalt but he lit a torch of hope and he
kindled the flame of devotion which brought
to fruition his dreams within the 50 years
that he predicted at the first Zionist Congress
in 1897.
HE WROTE, "I have not made Zionism
poorer but Jewry richer."
Elon reminds us of the words of Pope Pius
X words to Herzl in 1903, "We cannot approve
of the Zionist movement. The Hebrews have
not recognized our Lord, therefore we cannot
recognize the Jewish people."

as Attorney General waa Thomas Jef-
ferson and strangely enough, the man Jeffer-

Moses Levy was an esteemed member of
the bench in Philadelphia. He was also one
of the Board of Trustees of the University of
Pennsylvania. Jefferson, it is said, had planned
to name him Attorney General but was dis-
suaded by Albert Gallatin, his Secretary of the
Treasury- Gallatin also came from Pennsyl-
vania. The reasons for Gallatin's opposition
are not known.
THERE WAS another Levy who is asso-

Uriah P Levy. He served in the War of 1812.
He waa a fighting man and fought several
duels. Apparently he encountered some anti-
Semitism. He was a great admirer of Jeffer-
He bought Jefferson's estate, Monticello,
after Jefferson's death, which probably saved
Monticello from being divided up and sold in
lots. He also presented to the government the
statue of Jefferson which now stands in the

think of the Mideast situation if he were h?re
today? It was in his administiation that the
United States went to war with T.ipoli over
its sea-jacking of American war vessels in the

first American war after the establishment of
the Constitutional Union.
rVOW YOU don't need to be an historian to rewrite momentous
events to square with your favored fancies. The voices of
the revisionists are heard in the land; and those voices assail
your ears over television And there's gold in those interviews.
Best example lo date, of course, is H. R. Haldeman, former

for Mike Wallace and CBS at a price estimated at anywhere
from S25,000 to $50,000.
MR. HALDEMAN is not the first luminary to go through
this profitable exercise of "fee speech;" but his payment is
made to one under a minimum .W-month sentence for con-
spiracy, obstruction of justice and perjury in the Watergate

better way to employ his leisure than by proclaiming his in-

enjoyed similar privileges for a fee. And so have John W. Dean
HI and William F. Calley Jr.
WHAT MR. HALDEMAN brought forth through his labars
with Mr. Wallace was really not all that astounding. He said
that he bore his captain, Mr. Nixon, respect, not love.
He revealed that Mr. Nixon had toyed with the idea of
pushing Spiro Agnew out of the vice presidency to make way
for John Connally. Apparently, both Mr. Nixon and Mi. Halde-
man regarded Mr Connally as a fellow who would make a
superb vice president, or even president. Behold the numerous
blessings Mr. Connally showered upon Texas as governor.
DID MR. HALDEMAN make mistakes while in the White
House' Well, there was the one about the tapes: really, they
thould have been destroyed. Mores the shame they weren t.
(It would benefit CBS listeners to have Mike Wallace put that
question to Alexander Butterfield. who made tape history in
the Watergate affair and has since been bumped, truth-teller
that he turned out to be. Chances are Mr. Butterfield wouldn t
expect a tee for his interview. Just not his way of life.)
Having made notes on the Haidcman-Wallace $25,000 <*
up television interview, John Dean came up with two points
worth remembering: (1) Mr. Haldeman, despite all his efforts
to make the 26 million television viewers watching the show
hail him as an innocent, remains clearly convicted by the
relentless process of law; (2) Mr. Haldeman, despite all his
orotestations on the air, "oonfused motto with the legalities
of intent."
Mr. Haldeman insisted in his long hour on Mr. Wallace's
stage that he had no intent ta commit the crime with which
he was charged. Let's grant that, says John Dean, and then let
us recall that "Robin Head is no less a thief because he stole
to feed the poor; and Haldeman is no less a conspirator to
obstruct justice because he merely sought to protect a Prsi
THESE REFLECTIONS on the Haldeman-Wallace show
bring us eventually to the thoughts going through the minds
of heads of networks other than CBS, networks failing to pay
Mr. Haldeman handsome cash for his exclusive.
Over at ABC and NBC, die brass well knows that Presi-
dents Truman, Eisenhower and Johnson all received money for
interviews with no protests resulting. What's wrong with giv-

*Py He rendered extremely valuable serv-
ice. He was caught, and was executed.
Elie Cohen was a native of Egyrt and there-
fore spoke Arabic fluently. After he emigrated to
Israel in 19&5 he was enrolled in intelligence work
and it was decided to send him on the most danger-
ous mission. But first of all. he had to acquire a
new identity.
He became a prosperous Arab businessman.
After steeping himself in every aspect of Arab cul-
ture and Moslem lore, he went to Argentina aad
became a respectable member of the Arab com-
munity in that country. He was a liberal contributor
to Arab causes,
BECAUSE OF his personal charm, as well as
his financial means, he moved in the very top cir-
cles of Damascus society. He hobnobbed with gen-
erals and government officials. He became their con-
fidant. He knew everything that was going on. He
was taken on inspection tours of the Syrian front
positions on the Golan Heights.
Elie Cohen waa a spy, but he was entitled to a
fair trial with legal counsel. This he did not get.
