solidarity, participants in the
1976 United Jewish Appeal
Prime Minister's Mission, re-
sponded to the human needs of
the people of Israel with record
pledges totaling $13.6 million
a 15% increase.
The fast-paced mission and
compact itinerary gave the more
than 300 American Jewish lead-
ers, including 1976 community
chairmen from some 90 major
cities, a comprehensive insight
into the critical social and eco-
nomic problems facing the Is-
raeli people.
"On this mission, we have
seen the agonies and the bur-
dens, the heights of human
achievement and brilliance of
Jewish excellence," said UJA
Chairman Frank R. Lautenberg.
"We have seen evidence that
dreams even the most dis-
tant ones, can be realized.
"Therefore, we in the Amer-
ican Jewish community, in the
spirit of renewed commitment,
must continue our unswerving
support to the miracle that is
At a dinner in the Knesset,
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
spoke philosophically: "After
the agreement there will be
no rest. It will be a time for
thinking and for doing a
time for soul-searching and a
time for discovering the real
meaning of life and its purpose.

In another exercise in politi-

"crazy" is neither a legal nor
a medical term, but a medieval
hangover that betrays oar fears
of something we still know so
little about.
And so, Caplan's statement,
for all its cogency, must be
handled like a booby trap. I
suppose Caplan meant to say
that public officials nice Presi-
dent Ford are targets these
days for just about anybody.
But that holds true for all of
us in the big cities, not just for
pvohc officials. And the issue
is not thai we are surrounded
bv hordes of "crazy people."
INSTEAD, the issue Is WHY
they are "crazy." One answer
that comes quickly to mind is
the public officials themselves.
They lie. They steal. They
cheat. They conspire at every
opportunity to subvert the gov-
ernmental order. They consort
with cartebsts, reap profit from
the twisted exercise of their po-
litical power as it never was

They are a never-ending
source of conflicting signals
and. if as Caplan says of them,
they see reality through a '"dis-
torted filter," it is for the rea-
son that their elected officials
say one thing to them and do
another against them.
They are a never-ending
source of growing frustration,
rage and ultimate violence. You
want to trust them, to love
them; and you must wind up
hating them because their "pub-
lic service" is little more than

Blacks Critical of Arab Tactics
NEW YORKTwo of the na-
tion's leading Black newspapers,
were critical this week of Arab
proposals to expel Israel from
the UN General Assemby, the
American Jewish Congress re-
In an editorial, the Chicago
Daily Defender said: "The Is-
lamic Foreign Ministers' Con-
ference calling for Israel's ex-
pulsion from the United Nations
was not only foolish and damag-
ing but would bring no credit
to the ministers themselves and
no benefits to Arab interests."
ON THE same dayJuly 22
The Philadelphia Tribune de-
clared: "The UN has acted ir-
responsibly throughout the
Arab-Israeli crisis, but if they
become so outrageous as to vote
to expel Israel, it will be clear
that they have completely out-
lived their usefulness"
The Chicago Defender called
the Islamic Foreign Ministers'
resolution "a erode and emo-
tional gesture of contempt to-
ward the United Nations and a
deliberately rude and provoca-
tive reply to Secretary of State
Kissinger's speech appealing for
a more constructive attitude by
the smaller members of the
world organisation.
"That the United States might
withdraw financial contribution
to the UN is an ominous con-
tingency that should not be
roled out if the third world na-
tions go through with the reso-
lution to expel Israel," the De-
fender said, adding:
WITHOUT U.S. membership,
financial support and influence,
the UN w.ould be an empty
The Defender, flagship of the
Sengstacke chain of papers, is
published daily with an audited
circulation of approximately
35,000. It is one of two Black
eafnVs m the U.S.
In its longer editorial, the
Philadelphia Tribune, asserting
that a vote to expel Israel would
be "an outrage and an injustice
of monstrous proportions." de-
"Most of the UN member na-
tions hardly come to that august
body with clean hands. Over
half the nations are military dic-
tatorships which do not have
even the most basic freedoms,
humane treatment of ordinary
citizens, or democratic princi-
ples in their awn countries.
"Israel is light years away
from both of these categories.
Yet no one has ever talked of
expelling any of these other
countries from the UN (except
for South Africa) while many
now talk of expelling Israel.
MANY OF the member na-
tions have engaged In the ruth-
less, cold blooded murder of
thousands of citizens or the im-
prisonment and torture of tens
or hundreds of thousands for
simply disagreeing with their
governments' policies. In this
category are Chile, Haiti, Brazil,
Uganda, Uruguay, the Soviet
Union, Indonesia, the Philip-
pines, South Africa, South
Korea, etc.
"Many others, such as Iran,
Paraguay, Nicaragua and Saudi
Arabia, have a tiny number of
citizens controlling enormous
wealth, while the overwhelming
majority of their fellow country-
men suffer from incredible pov-
erty, hunger or even starvation.
"IRONICALLY, the same kind
of Israel which the UN now
talks of expelling was the crea-
tion of the UN in 1947. At that
time the UN voted to create a
Jewish state alongside a Pales-
tinian state on the West Bank
of the Jordan River. The Arab
nations refused to abide by the
UN resolution, however, and
fought a war (unsuccessfully)
to keep Israel from becoming a
Mexico City Gives Okay
To PLO Office Opening
MEXICO CITY (JTA) President Luis Eche-
verria ratified his promise given to Palestine Liberation
Organization leader Yasir Arafat to permit the PLO to
open an information office in Mexico's capital. The rati-
fication of his promise came during a meeting here with
a PLO delegation led by the head of its political depart*
merit. Farouk Kaddumi.
Echeverria originally made his promise to Arafat
vhen he met him during his Mideast trip last month
prior to visiting Israel. Meanwhile, the Haifa folklore

EDITOR, The Jewish Flortdlan:
May I at the outset compli-
ment both you and your staff
for producing a canstantly-wn-
proving and increasingly more
readable and interesting pub-
lication. i
However, in The Jewish Flor-
idian of Palm Beach County of
Sept. 12, there appeared a some-
what lees than accurate head-
line reading "Bioentenial Event:
U.S. Navv's First Jewish Rear
Admiral" o)e)l
IT IS true that the second
paragraph of the informative
article on the renowned histor-
ian. Rabbi Bertram Korn. re-
cently promoted to Rear Ad-
miral in the Naval Reserve, doea
state that he is-the first Jwih
Cawpfcaia in the hnrtory of the
nation's armed forces to achieve

flag rank, b*it ?** is a far cry
from being our Navy's "First
Jewish Rear Admiral."
With no real effort I can think
of at least two (and there must
be more) Jewish Rear Admirals.
One is my friend and long-
time associate in synagogal ac-
tivities in Annapolis, Md., Rear
Adra. Morris Smellow, a Naval
Academy graduate and a most
estimable gentleman, and if I
mistake not, Hyman Rickover
either was or is of flag rank,
as a Rear Admiral or higher.

PARIS (JTA) Rabbi Is-
rael Miller, chairman of the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish Organ-
izations, said here that he had
found the Rumanian Jewish
community to be a highly vital,
well organized and active com-
Rabbi Miller returned from a
week-long trip to Rumania dur-
ing which he visited syna-
gogues, Jewish institutions,
clubs, welfare facilities and
conferred with local officials
and foreign diplomats. He visit-
ed the country as guest of the
Rumanian government.
THE CHAIRMAN of the Pres-
idents Conference told the Jew-
ish Telegraphic Agency, "I was
surprised to see the Rumanian
community to be so vital, so well
organized and so well attended."
He said that all these activi-
ties were carried out not only
with the full knowledge of the
Rumanian government but with
its active help. '
Rabbi Miller said that he did
not know how many of Ruma-
nia's estimated 60,000 Jews
want to leave the country but
he hoped and believed that all
those who want to do so will
be able to do so.
He said that he, nonetheless,

He said he saw Jewish choral
groups sing in Yiddish and He-
brew and one day in a small
provincial city found 50 people
attending services in the local
synagogue early in the morning.
HE DEPLORED the fact,
however, that there are only
two rabbis left in Rumania and
expressed fear as to what will
happen after Rumania's Chief
Rabbi, Moses Resen, retires.
Rabbi Miller said he intends
to present a report to the Amer-
ican Jewish community on what
he had seen during this week-
long trip.

W'lTH ALL the talk about new sources of energy

IN WINTER, when he wants to warm up, does
he waste gasoline? No. He takes a hot glass of tea.
To be sure warming a glass of tea requires
some fuel too. but warming a cup of tea is much
cheaper than warming or cooling a room .
Why are Jews such loving people? I have often
wondered about it. The answer is plain. If you get
into the practice of kissing, you must become lov-
ing, and what people kiss so much as Jews?
Jews kiss several times as much as other peo-
ple. Maybe you don't realize it. If so. it's because
you do not associate with the right kind of Jews. A
g,Hd religious Jew dots a great deal of kissing.
Many Jews will not leave or enter the house with-
out kissing.

Salaries Up,
Tuition Down
'T'HE CURRENT recession has put the Hebrew day school
movement in a "financial pincers" of simultaneous requests
for reduced tuition fees from marginal or newly-jobless parents
and requests for cost-of-living increases from teaching staff
members, according to officials of Torah Umesorah, the Na-
tional Society for Hebrew day schools.
But the officials stressed that no Hebrew day schools
had been forced to close for financial reasons during the
.school year which ended last month and that it was highly un-
likely that any would be forced to shut down for such reasons
during the coming school year.
DR. JOSEPH KAMINETSKY, Torah Umesorah national di-
rector, told a meeting of the educational agency's board, con-
vened to discuss the recession-inflation crisis, that the twin
set of requests were playing havoc with day school budgets
throughout the country. He said a number of Hebrew day
schools had not met their payroll for weekr
He reported that the 474 Hebrew day schools, located in
34 states, were preparing requests for larger allocations from
'-.wisn Federations and Welfare Funds. He said that, in most
--i:>es. ine requests will be for increases of between IS and 2b
percent, with some schools planning to ask increases of up to
r > percent.
MOSES I. FEUERSTEIN, Torah Umesorah executive com-
mittee chairman, reported that the loan funds of the agency
had been totally depleted. Last year, he said Torah Umesorah
provided Hebrew day schools with Interest-free loans totalling
nearly $350,000.
Rabbi Bernard Goldenberg. Torah Umesorah director of
school organization and professional services, reported that
most of the day schools he visited during a recent trip to the
south and the east coast indicated plans to raise tuition fees
by ten percent for the 1975-76 school year.
AMPLIFYING THE reports. Rabbi Goldenberg told the
.'.-wish Telegraphic Agency that the problem of unmet payrolls
was greater in jhe New York area than elsewhere in the United
States. He said that, outside of New York, the longest period
of non-payment of salaries was around two months, while in
the New York area it was as high as four months for some
He said the affected teachers were turning to loans, credit
extensions and their in-laws. He also noted that many Hebrew
day school teachers have long been forced to moonlight, that
some hold down extra jobs and that wives of teachers usually
work. He said that the fact was that New York Hebrew day
schools "are carried on the backs of teachers."
HE SAID he found most schools he visited determined not
to cut instructional staffs and educational programming and
that they hoped to make savings in areas of extra-curricular
activities, office overhead and tighter control over use of sup-
One technique used by a few schools with some success
which more schools are expected to test, he said, is to urge
parents to try to borrow tuition funds from banks.
He said this procedure provides the school with funds at
the start of the school year while costing the parents only the
difference between the interest deductions on their income tax
and the interest charge for the loan. But. he noted, that pro-
cedure can work only with middle-income families.
RABBI GOLDENBERG said some parents send their chil-
dren to day schools for reasons other than religious commit-
ment, such as the quality of the schools.
For such "fringe-interest" parents, reductions of scholar-
ships or tuition increases often leads to a decision to take
thaflr children out of the day schools. He said that, outside of
Mew York, such losses can be as high as 10 to 15 percent of

Amerieaii Jews And Israelis
Must Establish Dialogue
Tern*'* BH Sholom
Uke Worth
There is a fundamental risk
involved in discussing the rela-
tionship between Israel and the
Galut (Exile). The risk is that
Israel nays the mice of life and
securitv, while the "Galut." at
least th? Western Jewry, enjoy
the immunitv.
We must, nevertheless, con-
front the issue. The relationshio.
which is indispensable to our
common existence, will Derish
without dialogue. Through mu-
tual, if anguished, encounters,
we mieht find a way to st-ony
and enduring alliance of body
and soul.
The highest consideration re-
quires open discourse, even if it
becomes harsh at times; efforts
to repress it are harmful. Jem
of the newer generation will not
be silenc?d bv reminders that
Israel is paying the ultimate
pricr: they will either sneak out
and in lass tlnn friendly man-
neror became alienated.
Some Galut Jews could argue
that their own fate is affected
bv the wav Israel is operating-
We ji Galut will experience the
fallout o f and-Senutism as a
conseouence of Israel's struggle.
Lone before 'he issue of "Is-
ra-1-Galut relationship' began to
agitate us. history had already
decreed that we are a people
One People
The ini'Ul nremiee on which
Israel Galut relations must be
established is that, even with
emergence of the Stat- of IsraH.
our besetting nustion is still
the Jewish problem.
Any effort to achieve ac-
commodation along 'he lines of
"they and we" rather than "I
and thou" of "Israel vs. Galut"
rather than one people fighting
for its 0Off ival is bound to lead
to estrangement and growing
mutual peril.
Jewish survival becomes in-
creasingly questionable if we
permit a chasm to arise between
Israel and the Galut. The Galut
cannot sustain itself spiritually
alone without the most intimate
relationship with Israel.
Israel has given us "moraL
istential strength." It has given
istential trensth. It has given
us strength to live as Jews and
to labor on behalf of our fallow
Jews. It has revived our Jewish
consciousness and actually in-
tffMified it.

Purification Or Politics?
By Rabbi Michael B. Bisenstat
Temple Judea
The argument over "Who is
a Jew?" continues to burn.
Within the ranks of tha Reform
Rabbinate there has arisen con-
troversy since some of its
members have begun conver-
sion procedures "k'haiacha,"
according to Orthodox law.
One might have thought this
development would be greeted
wjth enthusiasm by the Ortho-

What is at stake here is fun-
damental to the unity of the
Jewish community. Is the
Orthodox Rabbinate concerned
with the preservation of tha
"purity of the Jewish people"
and the Hnlachah it claims to
hold in reverence, or is it con-
cerned with establishing itself
as t>*e religious "power broker"
among th; tntiani segments of
the local rabbinate and in coerc-
