CJA-IEF Campaign Passes Million Dollar Mark
Alore than $1,100,000 has been '
edeed to date to the 1975 Jew-
Federation's Combined Jew-
.i Appeal Israel Emergency
hnd campaign, Dr. Marvin
Cenberg, Reneral campaign
[airman, announced.
"This represents a peace-time
cord, and we expect to double
j amount raised in 1973," Dr.
isenberR reported.
."The voluntary outpouring of
1,350.000 during the Yom Kip-
\r War campaign may not be
ached this year, but our com-
unitv will certainly surpass
at dollar-figure in the near
future," Dr. Rosenberg added.
Preliminary planning for the
1976 campaign is underway,
with the Federation executive
Committee and staff developing
programs to organize the com-
munity for a maximum effort.
Dr. Clifford Josephson, execu-
tive director, stressed the fact
that the services supported in
Israel through the CJA-IEF are
ever-increasing and demanding.
"Our national organizations
and other services supported by
Federation enrich and enhance
Jewish life and the role of Jews
in the United States," Dr.
Josephson said. "These impell-
ing factors create the need for
an energetic and comprehen-
sive campaign, so that each Jew
in our community may express
his support and participation."
The Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County, the central
social service agency in the
area, raises funds on behalf of
the United Jewish Appeal and
those national and local agen-
cies whose support is determin-
ed by the Allocations Commit-
tee annually.

REHOVOTA new approach
to investigating how antibodies
combine with antigens has been
reported by Dr. Israel Pecht. of
the Weizmann Institute's De-
partment of Chemical Immun-
The action of antibodies is es-
sential to the body for fighting
invading bacteria or viruses and
for neutralizing harmful sub-
stances entering the body.
SUPPORTED BY a grant from
the Volkswagen Foundation of
the Federal Republic of Ger-
many, Dr. Pecht and his co-
workers examined the biologic-
ally active combining sites or
"pockets" in several varieties of
well-defined antibodies.
With the aid of sophisticated
"chemical relaxation" tech-
niques, originally developed by
Professors M. Eigen and L. Da
Maeyer in Gottingen, he meas-
ured the ability of the "pocket"
to capture and held a large
number of closely related, but
chemically different substances.
BY VARYING his experimen-
tal molecules in a controlled,
step-wise fashion, Dr. Pecht
could deduce significant facts
about the size and chemical na-
ture of the combining site, as
well as about the conformation-
al changes in the antibody
triggered by antigen binding.
This approach, termed "kin-
etic mapping," allows scientists
to study structural features at
proteins as they exist in tin*
body, in solutions rather that*
as isolated crystalline products.
In ether investigations, Da*.
Pecht has studied a group at
proteins known as oxidasea
which mediate energy conver-
sion in the body via electron!
transport and are important hi

stand on Jewish, emigration
from the Soviet Union. They
called for "new initiatives" by
the American Jewish communi-
ty to prod Soviet action on both
Jewish emigration and restora-
tion of the cultural rights of
Jews who remain in the USSR.
Community leaders were
warned against letdowns in pub
lie protest drives and campaigns
brought on by enactment of the
Jackson-Vanik Amendment.
Stanlev H. Lowell, chairman
of the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry, called the legis-
lation "a maior breakthrough"
in the on-going campaign for
Soviet Jews but said the Jew-
ish community may have be-
come "victims of our own suc-
cess" because of public miscon-
ceptions that the law itself has
accelerated emigration.
Reporting that some 140,000
Jews who have applied for exit
visas are being thwarted by
present Kremlin resistance that
has slowed emigration to about
1,000 a month. Lowell called for
new and wider tactics that
would place the issue "on the
agenda of all international con-
ferences and in the context of
U.S.-Soviet cultural exchanges."
"Wholesale demands" for the
restoration of Jewish education-
al, cultural and religious insti-
tutions and facilities that "will
put the Soviet Union on the
moral defensive throughout the
world" were also proposed dur-
ing the sessions.
The plenary meetings result-
ed in an endorsement of re-
visions in the Federal budget
that give human needs priority
over concerns about the size of
the budget deficit.
The declaration criticized both
the Administration and its ve-
toes of vital social measures and
Congress for a "piecemeal ap-
proach" to unemployment, hous-
ing shortages, health care needs
and other social ills.
It urged, among other meas-
ures, an increase of one million
public service jobs, accelerated
public works, federal funding of
welfare, comprehensive national
health insurance, greater fed-
eral assistance to public educa-
tion, larger food stamp and
school-lunch programs and ex-
pansions in youth training, sum-
mer jobs and work-study pro-

Paley Cultural Center In

to an extensive study of both
Jewish and Arab arts, has been
donated to the Israel Museum
by William S. Paley. chairman
of the board of CBS, Inc.
Ground will be broken for
the center by Aug. 1 and is ex-
pected to be completed within
a year. The center will cost an
estimated SI million, including
the price of the land which was
donated by the Israel Museum
under whose aegis the center
will be.
The building is being estab-
lished by Paley in honor of his
mother, Mrs. Goldie Drell Paley,
94. of Philadelphia and Palm
"The center, designed by ar-
chitect Moshe Safdie, will be de-
voted to the advancement of the
arts and their enjoyment by the
people of Jerusalem," Paley ex-
plained. Teddy Kollek, Mayor of
Jerusalem, reaffirmed that "it
will serve the entire area of
eastern Jerusalem, both Jewish
and Arab."
He added: "In addition to its
intrinsic cultural and recrea-
tional value, the Paley Center
will also be a natural meeting
ground for Jewish and Arab
children in a variety of classes,
including painting, sculpture,
ceramics, photography, batik,
drama and dance. This is a
meeting ground which tran-
scends differences in language,
in culture, in ways of life."
Paley expressed the hope that
the center "will become a sym-
bol of peace as well as a cul-
tural institution." He empha-
sized that the foremost purpose
of the center "is to contribute
to the nurturing of a new gen-
eration of understanding in this
troubled area of the world."

A Worthwhile Warning
.^ert Chernin, the newly-elected executive vice
chairman of the National Jewish Community Relations
Advisory Council, issued a timely warning when he
urged the an Jewish community not to "over-
whelm itself with fears."
Chernin was referring both to a fear of erosion in
American public opinion's support of Israel as well as
a fear oi a deteriorating condition for American Jews
n was not saying that Utopia has come for
American Jews. "A little paranoia is a realistic percep-
tion ol history and essential to our survival.'' he
said. But. he warned, a "blind attitude" by American
Jews to their "hospital conditions" could lead to "a self-
fulfilling prophecy threatening our survival.-'
The new NJCRAC official was obviously referring
to fears expressed since the Yom Kippur War and the
Arab oil boycott of Jewish individuals and organiza-
tions that Jew are in real danger in the United States.
However, the polls that show most Americans sup-
port Israel and that the American people blamed the
oil shortage on the Arabs,
TV Jumps the Gun
There were some reports on the national television
networks last weekend definitely announcing that Is-
rael and Egypt had signed a three-year interim accord
based on unrevealed Israeli plans to withdraw from the
We mention this, not to show that confirmed re-
ports are frequently fictional, but to comment on the
temper of the times in America.
We do not doubt that such an agreement may be at
band. Ambassador Simcha Dinitz's visit with Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger at Kissinger's vacation spot
in the Virgin Islands certainly underscored the amount
of pressure the Ford administration is applying on Israel
to withdraw from the Sinai, and largely on Egyptian
That the administration placed a special plane at
Dinitz's diposal for his trip to the Virgin Islands also
underscored President Ford's recent statement that "I
will not allow'' stagnation in the Middle East toward the
achievement of an Israeli-Arab accord, temporary or
Our Nation's Fears
But all of this bears on America at large, not just
on the American Jewish community.
As we have already noted, the newly-elected execu-
tive vice president of the National Jewish Communitv
Rlations Advisory Council is on record as having warned
Jews not to be overwhelmed by fears that American
public opinion is swaying against both Israel and
American Jewry.
The point is that there is a GENERAL fear in
America today, not just a Jewish fear, about Arab inten-
tions in the Middle East.
It can not be denied that a good deal of this fear
is based on Arab oil policies.
But also a significant part of this has to do with the
nation's growing concern that a new war in the Middle
East will not find the U.S. involved militarily as it has
been in the past.

Ambrose Bierce tempered his
exultation in women's beauty
with imount of
chauvinism, but nevertheless

ALL OF this inspirational
erotica in the hearts and minds
of men has flown freely for
millenia in just about every
conceivable culture.
Women may have been, and
may still be enslaved, as the
modern women's libber would
have it, but there never was a
dearth of male sentiment some-
where on this dreary globe to
argue that the female is the
gentler sex.
She is, after all. the bearer
of the race. Her role is to nur-
ture life and to inspire love
not only physical, but spiritual,
as well.
WHO HAS not, at one time
or another, wondered what
things would be like if women
were in the highest places, not
men if women occupied the
seats of governmental and
, <
economic power, not their stal-
lion-like mates?
Aggression would disappear.
Since women give life, they
would never be inclined to take
it. The Isaiah vision would be
fulfilled there would be war

Of course, when I ask who
has not, at one time or another,

myself to the wrath of. say, the
Germaine Greers and Kate
Milletts of the liberation move-
THEY WOULD argue that
such speculations are sexist,
male manufactured romantic
notions ostensibly designed to
enshrine womento put them
up on a pedestal and worship
their beauty, to protect them
from a cruel and hostile world,
to shield the life-giver from the
heartless life-taker.
But, the Greers and the Mil-
letts would argue, man's real
purpose in thinking this way is
It is in fact a disguise to en-
slave women, to exploit them as
housekeepers, servants, nurses,
scullery maids and, mainly, as
unpaid prostitutes.
AND, for all of their alleged
romanticism, there has never
been a dearth of men on thie
side of the fence, either, and
well before women's liberation

Mafia Gangster and Poet Au<
Number 10

Los Angeles Times Syndicate
NEW YORKWhy should the
news about John Rosselli bring
to my mind a poem by W. H.
Auden? John Rosselli is. of
course, the Mafia gangster, now
a grandfatherly figure, who ap-
peared before the Senate com-
mittee on the CIA with such
secrecy that the papers were
not sure the pictures they ran
were really of him.
Along with the late unlament-
ed Sam Giancana. he seems to
have worked on the Castro as-
sassination plot in the early
1960s, in a plan to poison Cas-
tro and his top two men. and
thus topple the regime.
FOR SOME reason it sent me
back to Auden's poem, called
"September 1, 1939." which
opens thus: "I sit in one of the
dives On 52nd Street/ As
the clever hopes expire/ Of a
low dishonest decade."
That is how Auden felt about
the '30s. which had inspired
his generation with such fire
and hope, and which expired
with a second world war. Simi-
lar lines could have been writ-
ten about the '60s. and doubt-
less will be written about the
70s as well.
What makes the lines espe-
cially poignant now is that the
shadow of Rosselli and Gian-
cana, and of the CIA operations
now being sifted, fails over the
Kennedy years in the early 60s

At the meeting, Becker abo
announced that a suit would be
brought against the New York
City Council Against Poverty
(CAP), a channeling group that
distributes federal and state
funds for poverty areas.
He charged that CAP has
"systematically excluded" the
Jewish poor by the use of cer-
tain criteria for establishing
poverty areas that receive fund-
ing. He said that the use of
these criteria, such as the num-
ber of live births and the inci-
dence of juvenile delinquency
are unfair to the Jewish poor,
who are mainly elderly.

the mayor had "earmarked"
$912,000 for CAP and that he
had no choice as to whom it
was given. Dumpson also said
he saw no evidence of any dis-
crimination in CAP'S funding.
NCJW and Pioneer Women Hit
Mexico City Confab Resolution
NEW YORK-It was the best
time; it was the worst time. It
was a success; it was a failure.
Everyone attending the Inter-
national Women's Year Con-
ference in Mexico City had a
separate point of view and in-
terpretation of what occurred:
what was the perspective of
three American Jewish women
Ann Robison, International
Affairs leader of the National
Council of Jewish Women, at-
tended the official U.S. gather-
ing called the Conference, as a
delegate from the International
Council of Jewish Women.
"I FOUND little comfort,"
she said, "either as an Ameri-
can or as a Jew. What we anti-
cipated actually happened, that
some repreentatives of UN
members turned the conference
into a political arena. A political
arena which expressed strong
ami-U.S. and anti-Israel senti-
ments. It disturbed me deeply
to see the original purposes of
the Conference so perverted
with nonsense resolutions link-
ing Zionism and apartheid."
The Tribune, the non-govern-
mental gathering across town
from the conference, was gen-
erally characterized by squab-
bling and chaos.
DENESE MANN, of Hartford,
Conn.. NCJW leader and Trib-
une delegate, said that "there
was enormous polarization be-
tween the American feminists
and the women who demanded
a 'new economic order.'
"Strictly si>eaking, the issues
of women"* rights were lost in
the shuffle. And regardless of
the pious statements from the
developing nations that full
equality for women will come
with economic development,
I'm still concerned with the
problems of Jewish women in
those countries, who suffer on
two counts."
What ultimately is the mes-
sage for Jewish women?
Said Rose Fishkin, another
NCJW Tribune delegate from
Middlesex County, "I see two
things about Jewish women in
this respect. The first is that
where human rights are con-
cerned, Jewish women will
inevitably be leaders. It's part
of the way we have acted tradi-
tionally and will continue to
"But the other thing, which
really struck me at this gather-
ing, is that Jewish women must
also look to their own special
needs, their own special prob-
lems, and their solidarity with

Jewish women all over the
that (or long-range results, only
nitty-gritty work would be suc-
cessful. They pointed to NCJW's
advocacy role in support of the
ERA and Title IX, which prohib-
its sex discrimination in educa-
tion, and commented that the
U.S. Women's Agenda recently
passed by the Women's Action
Alliance would probably have
the most impact in the next few
years. #;
The 100,000 members of the
NCJW are committed to a broad
program of education, commu-
nity service and citizen action.
Among its current priorities are
Women's Issues, the NCJW Re-
search Institute for Innovation
in Education in Jerusalem.
Also reacting to the confer-
ence's condemnation of Zion-
ism, Charlotte Stein, national
president of Pioneer Women,
called the vote a further at-
tempt by developing countries
to isolate Israel from the work'
"I AM surprised not with-
standing past resolutions adopt-
ed by United Nations' commit-
tees," she said.
"Of all the nations repre-

Remove Bias Restrictions
Before U.S. Loans are Granted
ernment of Syria is serious in
its recent efforts to obtain in-
creased American trade, in-
vestment and tourism, it should
remove the discriminatory re-
strictions currently enforced
on the 4,500 Jews still living in
Syria, a well known expert on
the Middle East told the House
Committee on International Re-
Dr. George E. Gruen, direc-
tor of Middle East Affairs for
the American Jewish Commit-
tee, in testimony before the
Special Subcommittee on Inves-
tigations, stated that despite
token actions to improve the
public image of Syria in the
United States, the Syrian gov-
ernment continues to impose
heavy restrictions on its Jew-
ish community.
SYRIAN JEWS, he said, are
restricted in their right to trav-
el, to attend universities, and
to sell or inherit property. The
word "Musawi" of the faith of
Moses) is stamped prominently
on their vital documents, in-
cluding bank accounts, drivers'
licenses, and even certificates
of membership in the medical
guild, he added.
Dr. Gruen made his state-
ments in connection with an
investigation concerning an Ad-
ministration plan to grant Syria
:ong term, low interest loans
totaling $58 million.
"I believe that the United
States should continue to seek
to improve relations with Syria,
but this must be a two-way
street," Dr. Gruen declared.
"IF THE Syrians wish in-
creased American trade, invest-
ment and tourism, as they say
they do, then it is manifestly in
their own self interest to do
something to convince the
American public that Syria is
a country governed by the rule
of law and not a police state
subject to the arbitrary whim
of the Muhabarat (intelligence
or secret police)."
Dr. Gruen emphasized that
Americans are concerned with
the rights ot Syrian Jews "as
a basic humanitarian issue, and
not as part of the Arab-Israel
IN DECLARING that "Syria
is the only Arab country that
totally refuses to allow its Jews
to emigrate," he pointed out
that the government's policy
was "inconsistent with Arab
practice, and indeed contradicts
the official Arab propaganda
line, which allegedly draws a
distinction between Israel,
which it opposes for political
reasons, and Jews, which it
respects as members of a
monotheistic faith."

Mandel Says Reds Sensitive About Exits
Marvin Mandel of Maryland,
who was one of eight governors
who visited the Soviet Union in
May, said that it must be im-
pressed upon the Soviet govern-
ment that the issue of Jewish
emigration is a human not a
political problem and that the
American people support the
right of Soviet Jews to leave
the USSR.
He said that President Ford
and Secretary of State Henry
A. Kissinger should make the
Soviet leaders aware that all
the people of this country are
concerned about the problem.
SPEAKING at a press con-
ference sponsored by the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry at the offices of the
American Jewish Congress,
Mandel said that the governors,
who were on an official State
Department-sponsored exchange
visit met with Soviet President
Nikolai V. Podgorny and other
Soviet officials and were treated
with extreme courtesy except
when the emigration issue was
He noted that the Soviets ap-
peared to be much more sensi-
tive on this than they were
when he visited the USSR three
years ago.
The Russians said that there
was no problem and that the
issue was being raised by out-
side forces, Mandel said.
HE SAID they also declared
it was an internal issue. Man-
del reported that the governors
in turn tried to point out tha|

lem, but one of human beings

Senate Pulls U. S. Out of ILO
The House of Represen-
tatives has withdrawn the
United States government
from participation in the In-
ternational Labor Organiza-
tion because the ILO gave
the Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization status in that
United Nations affiliate as
an observer.
Supporting the position of
the AFL-CIO, the House vot-
ed to delete from appropria-
tions to the State Depart-
ment the funds to pay into
the ILO. The cutoff is ef-
fective as of last June 12.
Rep. John Slack (D., W. Va.)
and John Murtha (D., Pa.) led
the fight to delete the funds.
They were opposed by Reps. El-
lord Cederberg (R., Mich) and
Millicent Fenwick (R., NJ.).
Slack, who introduced the
deletion legislation, pointed out
that while observer status is
non-voting and non-paying, it
permits the PLO representation
in ILO proceedings.
Slack poin'ed out that when
the ILO admitted the PLO, the
U.S. delegation, made up of
representatives of government,
labor and management walked
The labor group said it would
not return to that session. The
U.S. tunds 23 percent of the
ILO budget.
THE HOUSE vote was 21-8,
less than a quorum. But since
no member raised the point of
the absence of a quorum or
entered an objection, the ILO
amendment was adopted.
Cederberg argued he has
"never been a real fan" of the
ILO, but Secretary of State
Henry A. Kissinger and others
in the State Department ex-
plained to him that suspending
U.S. funds to the ILO "at this
time when we are carrying out
these negotiations (in the Mid-
dle East) just adds another
problem that we really do not
need at this time."
Cederberg made much of Is-
rael's remaining in the ILO,
saying "the reason" is that the
Israelis "figure they can do
more good within the organiza-
tion rather than moving out-
Murtha said "Congress has to
exert itself' because the PLO
should be condemned "especial-
ly after allegedly participating
Peres Warns Against
Giving Up Passes
TEL AVIV(JTA)Defense Minister Shimon Peres de-!
clared here that if Israel was to give in to Egypt's demands'
that she evacuate the Mitla and Gidi Passes, Israel would
be left without a defense line in the Sinai.
"As long as Egypt does not end the state of war with!
Israel we cannot evacuate further than the line which goes.

interview with Maanv.
"THESE PASSES are the anchor to which the Israeli
Army's" defense is attached, he stressed.
Peres said that Israel wants in return for an evacuation
of the western part of the Passes an agreement by Egypt
that she would not go to war for a certain period of time.
The aim of this agreement would be for Egypt to con-
centrate on her internal economic and social affairs rather
than on war with Israel.
Chief of Staff Gen. Mordechai Gur said that the Passes
were important for both Egypt and Israel. But he said that
Egypt's insistence that Israel evacuate the Passes entirely
may indicate that Egypt is planning some offensive action

Do you have a question relating to a family problem?
Each month, the Jewish Family and Children's Service
will attempt to answer questions of general interest' in
this column. Inquiries should be addressed to "Dear
Jenny," Jewish Family and Children's Service, 309 Citi-
zens Building, West Palm Beach, Fla. 33401.
Dear Jenny:
In the city where I formerly
lived, several Russian Jewish
emigre families have been set-
tled with assistance from the
local Jewish community. Why
haven't we in Palm Beach
County been part of this hu-
manitarian endeavor?
Dear Concerned:
Perhaps the word just hasn't
gotten around yet. Up to the
present we have been involved
in the resettlement of two Rus-
sian-Jewish families, although
the. Jewish Family and Chil-
dren's Services has been in ex-
istence a relatively short time.
JF&CS handles details, such
as finding housing. jobs,
schools, etc. and Federation
provides financial and other
support as needed.
As a small community, we
really cannot undertake the re-
settlement of many individuals
at a time. Also the language
barrier and the new arrivals'
unfamiliarity with our customs
and laws sometimes results in
their feeling isolated from the
rest of the Jewish community.
It would help if some of our
Russian-speaking citizens would
lot JF&CS know that they can
be called on to extend a hand
of friendship to newcomers. At
r-*snt w have not received a
request from H1AS to accept
am>f>er family, but as always,
JFACS and Federation are
ready to help if needed.
& Dear Jenny:
I have been advised to seek
counseling for a member of my
family. My understanding is
that this kind of help is very
expensive. Although our income
is very limited, we want to do
whatever we can to help our
child. Is there a Jewish clinic
or doctor where we can get as-
sistance with these problems
within our means?
Worried Mother
Dear Worried:
Professional confidential help
'it1' vour child's problems is
available at the Jewish Family
and Children's Service. Con-
sultations can be arranged by
calling the JF&CS office Mon-
day through Friday, at 655-

are taken into consideration in
setting fees.
I hope you will contact this
agency so that you can receive

75 teenagers from two trade

from the village of Tybe. All
were citizens of Israel. And

in a tense atmosphere. There
was some suspicion, even hos-
tility at first. Many of the
youngsters hesitated to speak
out. But it was not long before
the initial strain lesened and a
frank exchange developed.
Most of the Arab students
thought the creation of a Pales-
tinian state was essential, but
they were divided over whether
it should be an independent
West Bank State or federated
with Jordan.
Some of those who defended
ihe idea of an independent
Palestinian state expressed ap-
prehension about the role of
Yasir Arafat and of the terror-
ist methods of the various PLO
Others among the Arab par-
ticipants openly advocated
State of Israel as outlined in
"Greater Palestine," a euphem-
ism for the annihilation of the

General Assembly.

answered in the affirmative;
most of them replied that they
would remain in their home

The Jewish students, too, ex-
pressed a wide \ariety of opin-
ions. Some fervently defended
the claim to a "Greater Israel,"
the slogan of groups calling for
retention of the West Bank as
a permanent part of Israel.
Others supported return of the

Agonizing Need for Peace
In the end, America today is in no mood for a

ances that in the event of a new war, it would neve I
come to that, have proven effective.
This is why the network over the weekend were
quick to report what has yet to occur. It was a mime
of impatient public sentiment to still their fears.
But, along with Chernin, it is our hopeful view that
this impatience, these fears, do not express themselva
as hostility either toward American Jews or Israel.
They merely show what the TV reports showed-!
the agonizng American need for peace.

The British Ambassador, Sii

the Foreign Ministry here to

pression of regret on behalf of

THE MESSAGE expressed
"regret that the government of
Israel has seen fit to treat in
this way the bodies of two con-

Britain, Israel and other states
were making efforts to combat
international terrorism.
The message Is understood to
have referred to the fact that
the Jewish community in Pales-

ership had condemned the as-
sassination at the time and
strongly dissociated themselves
from it.
Israel is expected to deliver
a formal reply to Britain

decision to give the Sternists a

meeting of women for the pur-

a male-dominated, sexist so-
The conference concluded
last week with a resolution con-
demning Zionism. What could
be more irrelevant or, indeed,
more absurd?
Of course, one should not
have expected much more than
politicking at a UN-sponsored
function, because the UN to-
day is a Third World-dominated
mishmash of Arat> petrodollars
and African nations foolish
enough to believe in Arab clap-
trap about Arab revolution and
Arab liberation.
BUT EVEN on its own terms,
the anti-Zionist resolution is an
absurdity. Compare the status
of women in Israel to the status
of women in the Third World,
and one is forced to ask in a
burst of bitter laughter, who is
condemning whom?
But the essential issue in the
end is that a women's confer-
ence to discuss ways of achiev-
ing equality in a sexist world.
UN-sponsored or not, couldn't'
even come up with a resolution i
condemning sexism.
It could walk out as Leah
Rabin, wife of the Israeli Prime
Minister, rose to address the as-1
sembly. And it could condemn
Zionism both purely political
acts. ***;
BUT IT could not manage to j
carry out the central business
of the conference a conse-

from the sexist, male-dominated ,
manner and business earned (

to have shown itself to be what,
the Greers and Milletts say of j
women: that they are indeed
slaves of a male-dominated
world, parrots of their male;
masters, incapable of thinking
and speaking for themselves.
In ttoeae two unrelated cir-
cumstances. Gandhi and the
women's conference, the myth
dies hard, but die it does, that
women are the gentler sex, that
they are the nurturers, that in
their hands the world would

IN FACT, women are very
much like men.
Very much a man himself,
Lord Byron once declared:
"Sweet is revenge especially
to women."
And the poetess. Letitia
Elizabeth Landon, who lived to
barely 36 years of age she
died in 1838was nevertheless
wise enough to have surmised
about women that, "As beautiful
as woman's blush" is so is it
"As evanescent, too."
These were disappointed 19th
century views of the romantic
in revolt, showing women cap-
aole of human emotion not
necessarily related to the nur-
turing earth-mother, but still
different as in the past. In these
views, woman is suddenly more
hateful than man.

sad, but nevertheless it is true
that women can be as 'cruel,

Could you imagine a Jewish
president of the United States?
Well, maybe.
But could you imagine a
Jewish president of the United
States who would put on Tefillin
and daven each morning, eat
only kosher food, observe Shab-
bat and the other mitzvot of
Halachic Judaism, write He-
brew poetry and books on He-
brew grammar and even be the
author of an introduction to the
Talmud in Hebrew?
Now. that's another story!
Would you believe that there

he lived in Spain almost 1,000
years ago. that his poetry* still
survives and that his "Introduc-
tion to the Talmud" is found at
the beginning of every- copy of
the Talmud in use today?
His name was Samuel, the
son of Joseph. In Arabic, he
was called Samuel ibn Nagdela.
But to Jews, he was known as
Samuel ha-Nagid. Samuel the
Prince. Vizier (Prime Minister)
of Granada. General of its
armies and. for a number of
years, for all intent and pur-
poses King of that Arab mon-
Samuel was an extraordinary
man. but he also lived in extra-
ordinary times.
Spain was ruled by Arab-Mos-
lems called Moors. The Moors,
like many other Moslems, saw a
great deal of similarity between
their religion and Judaism. Both
believed uncompromisingly in
pure monotheism; both were
concerned not only with a set
of beliefs, but a total way of
life; both had a Written and
Oral Law that explained that
way of life, and both recognized
the importance of scholarship
in secular as well as religious
realms in order to make life
more pleasant and more mean-
There was a great deal of
mutual respect between Mos-
lems and Jews. The latter were
not only permitted, but en-
couraged by the Moslems to live
by the Laws of the Torah.
In the middle of the 10th
century the Caliph (Moslem
ruler) appointed a Jew, Hasdai

physician. He used his influence
and wealth to found a Yeshiva

Memorial Day and pay tribute
to those who lost their lives in
American wars and to rededi-
cate themselves to the ideals
and principles for which the
sacrifices were made.
Tisha B'av. which falls on
July 17 this year, is a Jewish
national memorial day. a FAST
day. not merely to memorialize
sad events, but also to pray for
the welfare of the Jewish people
in the Diaspora and in Israel.
The Ninth of Av has been a
day of grim tragedy in Jewish
history. On this day. the Israel-
ites, escaping from Egypt, were
doomed to wander in the desert
for 40 years. Spies sent to
Canaan by Moses to explore the
land came back with their false,
discouraging report on Tisha
This was also the date of two
great tragedies: the destruction
of Solomons Temple (586
B.C.E.); and, according to the
Mishna. the burning of the
Second Temple by the Romans
(70 C.E.).
Both the defeat of Bar Koch-
ba in 135 C.E. and the expul-
sion of the Jews from Spain in
1492 occurred on this fateful
It is in this spirit of reliving
the past that Jews have ob-
served Tisha Bav throughout
the centuries. No flags fly. no
parades march, no bands play.
It is a day to be spent quietly
in praying, fasting, and reading
the scroll of Eicha Charity is
given, synagogues are lit with
candles only, while the people
ait as mourners, shoeless, on
low benches. Lamentations are
chanted together with dirges
known as Kinnot.
Even though Judaism bids
man to worship God in joy, this
is one of the occasions on which
fasting is encouraged. In this
regard, the Conservative wing
honors only the Ninth of Av
besides Yom Kippur.
Reform Judaism disregards
Tisha Bav. as well as all the
other national fasts. Secular in-
fluences in Jewish life threaten
to do away with fasting on Yom
Kippur as well.
To abandon this hallowed
practice would inflict irrepar-
able loss to the already attenu-
ated religious life of Jewry. A
pampered generation like ours
can ill afford to dispense with
this sobering institution which
submerges the gratification of
bodily appetites to the needs
of the spirit. It brings home the
truth that not by bread alone
does man live.
Fasting is a form of self-
restraint, a self-discipline, which
enters into every system of
morality and religion. When
Jews are prompted to restrain
their appetites and passions,
they attain an exalted degree of
religion-mindedness; they gain
a freedom which the libertine
can never know. They conquer
their desires and become
masters of themselves. They
learn moderation in all things.

This was the environment in-
to which Samuel was born in
Cordova in 933. As soon as he
was old enough. Samuel became
a student at the Yeshiva.
When civil war broke out
among the Arabs. Samuel fled
to Granada. We don't know ex-
actly how the future statesman
first came to the attention of
the Vizier of Granada. Legend
has it that he was a professional
scribe who used to write court
In any case, we do know that
the Vizier became so enamour-
ed of the young Samuel that be-
fore the Vizier died, he recom-
mended Samuel as his success-
or. The king soon appointed him
not only Vizier, but General of
the Armies.
Samuel had great political
power, but he never forgot his
Judaism with all the responsi-
bilities of his position. He con-
tinued to find time for the study
of Torah.
As General he often sensed
in the enemy troops a certain
jealousy in seeing a Jew as
commander of the Armies of
Granada and he often expressed
this sentiment in his poetry-
But never did Samuel become
a bitter man or a vengeful war-
rior-statesman. He was too im-
bued with the teachings of the
Torah to lose the sense of com-
passion that Torah teaches.
One day. we are told, the king
heard an Arab curse Samuel.
The King ordered that the
man's tongue be cut out. but
the Vizier countermanded the
order. He spoke to the man and
found that he had suffered many
misfortunes in his life. He re-
alized that the curses were only
an expression of the poor man's
frustration. Instead of punish-
ing him. Samuel gave him ex-
pensive gifts and sent him home
to his familv.
Some time later, Samuel and
the King rode together in a
royal carriage. They spotted the
man walking in the street. He
looked up at them and shouted.
"Blessed be our King and his
noble Vizier."
When the King asked Samuel
why he had not cut out the
man's tongue as he had com-
manded, Samuel replied. "I did
exactly as you ordered. You
ordered that this man's wicked
tongue be removed. I have done
so. and now he has a kind
tongue in its place."

took over. But the latter was a

What is the status of
atomic research in Israel?
Development of atomic
energy in Israel was initiated
even before the end of the War
of Independence (1948-49), and
by the late 1960s research and
development in all fields of
atomic energy represented one
of the major national research
According to the authoritative
Encyclopaedia Judaica. the ini-
tial phase of atomic energy de-
velopment in Israel consisted of
two enterprises. The first was a
survey of the natural resources
of the country, particularly with
respect to the nuclear raw ma-
terials uranium and thorium.
Only low-grade deposits, pri-
marily associated with phos-
phate rocks, were located.
The second enterprise was the
initiation of a training program
to provide the necessary scien-
tific and technical staff for pos-
sible application of atomic
energy to the national economy.
The first research center was
located in temporary quarters
near Rehovot, and later moved
to its present site at Sorek. The
major facility at the Sorek Re-
search Center is a 5 Mw swim-
ming-pool-type reactor acquired
with the assistance of the U.S.
under the 1955 Atoms for Peace
Program, says the Encyclopae-
dia Judaica. This reactor be-
came operational in 1960. Other
facilities at Sorek include hot
laboratories, and research lab-
oratories for physics and chem-
istry, as well as health-physics,
electronics and mechanical
services. A Radioisotope Train-
ing Center, a joint Weizmann
Institute Israel Atomic Energy
Commission venture, was also
established at Sorek to provide
basic training in the techniques
and applications of radioac-
A second nuclear research
center was established at Di-
monah. some 25 miles South-
East of Beersheba. It was de-
signed to provide better facili-
ties for technological research
in nuclear power and desalting
as well as more extensive lab-
oratories for basic research and
training. The main facilities
there include a 24 Mw natural-
uranium heavy-water reactor
with extensive experimental fa-
cilities. In addition, the center
has hot laboratories, and engi-
neering, chemical, and physical
research laboratories.
The aim of the research and
development program, the Ju-
daica reports, is to acquire the
technology and fundamental
knowledge of nuclear science
and to apply these as early as
possible to the advancement of
the country.
Israel is a member of the In-
ternational Atomic Energy
Agency (Vienna) and partici-
pates actively in various inter-
national programs. Her experts
have been sent to various coun-
tries (Brazil, Costa Rica, For-
mosa. Greece. Kenya. Rumania,
and Uganda) to help in
lishing atomic energy
or to help in various applica-
tions. International courses am
held in Israel at the Sorek
Nuclear Research Center.

Montefiore took seriously everv aspect of

which they gave to the poor, and the visitor
recorded: "We all tasted several of the dishes
and found them to be very good, so much so
that I begged the ladies to send me some more

THE FOLLOWING Shabbat the ladies came

'J HE STEEP rise in the rate of-divorces among Americana
and American Jews has become, for the first time, a major
problem even among deeply Orthodox Jews, including mem-
bers of Hasidic sects, according to an official of an Orthodox
rabbinical court (Beth Din) in New York.
Rabbi Nachnm Josephy. executive vice president of the
Rabbinical Alliance of America and secretary of its Beth Din,
reported that during the eight months of the current Jewish
year, there had been a 50 per cent increase in Jewish divorces
(Gitten) granted bv the Beth Din.
RABBI JOSEPHY told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that
the Rabbinical Alliance Beth Din hnd granted 341 Gitten since
the start of the current Jewish yar last September and that
it was expected an additional 80 Gitten plus would be approved
by the end of the Jewish year next September, for an estimated
total of 420 Jewish divorces.
During the prior Jewish year, he said, the Beth Din had
approved a total of 232 Gitten. He said 22 Gitten had been
handed down during April, the highest monthly total since
he became Beth Din secretary.
HE SAID the majority of the couples coming to the Beth
Din for a Get are between 19 and 28 yean of age and that
many -are clearly not ready for the responsibiBttes of marriage
though all, in accordance with Orthodox family practices, al-
ready have children.
Of Orthodox Jews applying for Gitten. he said, 75 per cent
are from yeshiva and Hasidic backgrounds and-25 per cent of
less Orthodox commitment.
Rabbi Josephy and Rabbi Isaac Liebes, supreme judge of
the Beth Din, placed much of the blame for the surge of
divorces among New York Orthodox and ultra-Orthodox Jews
on the parents.
RABBI JOSEPHY, noting that many marriages in the Ortho-
dox and Hasidic communities are still arranged, said that
parents therefore still exercise substantial control over de-
cisions of their children and could seek to conciliate conflicts
between their married children and spouses but that, in fact,
they generally back their children in such disputes and tend
to worsen the conflict.
He said the squabbles often ar over trivial issues, involv-
ing material -matters. He suggested that even ultra-Orthodox
Jews are accepting the materialistic values of secular America.
HE SAID that among the reasons for the rapid rise in
applications for Jewish divorces might be, in addition to the
failure of parents to act as conciliators in marital squabbles
of their children, the current recession and a change in life-
styles, in which young Orthodox Jewish males are leaving the
family home to Rve by "themselves as singles, something new in
ultra-Orthodox patterns.
When a request for a Get is received by the Beth Din.
the Applicant is asked if he or she has obtained a civil divorce.
An effort is then made to determin** whether the contending
parties would agree to a conciliation effort under Beth Din
auspices. Rabbi Josephy said this usually involves a meeting
of the couple with parents for both sides but that such sessions
usually end up with the parental pairs shouting at each other.
HE DECLARED that the record of growing Jewish family
dissolutions recorded m New York wts important because New
York Jewry is the mirror for the Orthodox world in America.
He said the Beth Din, which was organised in 1968 by
Rabbi Abraham Gross, Rabbinical Alliance president, and Rabbi
Daviti Hollander, then first vice president and later president.
makes every possibl" effort to persuade the contending couples
to wOrk their differences out and avoid a divorce but that even
those who agree to try a reconciliation usually return to the
Beth Din to go ahead with divorce proceedings.

Gettheil to Abba Hillel Silver have not pre-
served for us ih their own words the Zionist

ME1.VIN I. UROFSKY, a professor of his-
tory, interviewed many of those yet alive and
pored over documents in archives that have
been accumulated over the years. He attempted
an almost impossible task in writing the history
of "American Zttrtfsm from Herd to the Holo-
caust" (New York. Anchor Press of Doubleday,
23b, 538 pp.).

\bu are about to find out
why a tire you never heard of
is 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 Its the
most economical tire you can own. Because of
the radial design you jet more miles per gallon
of gas than from either bias or belied bias
tires Because of the exclusive I.R.I. AR-Stecl
construction, you get thousands of extra miles
out of the tire itself We believe the result
i* the lowest cost per mile of driving from any
kind or any brand of tire oa the market today.
Our engineers believe the I R I All-Steel
Radial drives safer, ndes more comfortably,
steers more precisely and responds surer
than any oiher 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 tines 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.

Buying tires is tough enough.

understand tire advertising these days. There

1. The only tire with STEEL
sidewalls for strength and
flexibility, more protection,
more comfort.
2. Two belts of special filament
steel cable for maximum tread
strength. 30 steel cables per inch.
Total: Three layers of steel
beneath the tread.
3. Double steel protection here.

4. All-weather computer-designed
The strongest radial is aa 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 liber 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

tread stays open for maximum road contact
in all kinds of weather This also reduces
friction, w hich 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-Sted Radials meet government stand-
ards equivalent to an eight-ply rating and its
stamped on the side of every I R I ure Most
passenger tires even sted-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 caUe 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

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-Sted
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 best
The I.R.I, is aa all weathar. all-year tire.
Why you haven't beard about I.R.I.
All Steel Radials til 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 at
good as the finest imported tire available
Because we had no conventional tire-makm!
equipment, we were free "to try anything"
We did And came up with a totallv new ida 1
that produced a tire even better than the one
we had set out to make. Tbe I.R.I All-Sted
