1976 Combined Jewish Appeal Israel Emergency Fund,
was among campaign chairmen and executive directors
from Southeastern Jewish Federations in Atlanta to be
briefed by Arnon Gafni (right), director-general of Is-
rael's Ministry of Finance. Gafni detailed Israel's critical
economic decline and sharply lowered standard of liv-
ing since the Yom Kippur War. Emphasizing that U.S.
foreign aid is essential and used primarily to maintain
Israel's security and defense needs, he called on Amer-
ican Jewry to raise a minimum of S600 million for the
1976 United Jewish Appeal, upon which Israel must rely
for much of her social services and the continuing re-
settlement and absorption of Soviet immigrants. LocaUy,

president of the Jewish Federa-

sees the action as "debasing
and negating the very principles
under which the international
organization was founded."

scription at UN headquarters

philosophy of Zionism itself, the

Zionism and racism adopted by its Third Committee or
suffer massive alienation of American support."
"The American people will not be fooled by a reso-
lution which absurdly asks the UN to declare 'that
Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination',"
the labor leader declared.
"ZIONISM IS not. It is precisely the product of
revulsion against these evils, especially as they reached
their culmination in the holocaust of Hitler for whom
some of the promoters of this resolution can scarcely
conceal their admiration," he declared.

Jewish community leaders not

citiwns of good conscience to

official U.S. position on the

U.S. representatives and govern-
mental officials, including Presi-

fairs chairwoman, and Do-

Women, d'scussed with Sen.

criminal code at the re-
cent Joint Program Insti-
tute in Washington.
sador Daniel P. Moynihan. Sec-
retary of State Henry A. Kissin-

Communication with these

position, especially in light of
the U.S.'s continuing relation-
ship with other governments.

President Ford's proposals for
increased state taxes constituted
"an unconscionable attempt to
inflict a still greater proportion-
al share of our society's burdens
upon a group that can afford to
bear them the leastthe ill, the
aged and the senescent."
Becker said the proposal for
increased taxes impinged on an
area in which hundreds of thou-
sands of Jewish poor reside,
calling the suggestion a "cruel
injustice" when budget slashes
had left thousands of New York
residents jobless "and has dras-

Speaking at the Fresh Mea-
dows Jewish Center and at an
American Jewish Congress con-
ference at Brooklyn College,
Rep. Abzug noted that almost
half of the 20,000 New York
City civil service workers laid
off because of the fiscal crisis
are Jews.
SHE CITED figures from the
Council of Jewish Organizations
in Civil Service, previously re-
ported by the Jewish Telegraph-
ic Agency, that the layoffs of
Jewish workers included 7,000
teachers and educational per-
sonnel, 140 policemen, SO fire-
men, 25 correction officers, 500
Human Resources Administra-
tion workers and 1,500 in other
city departments.
She said the recession, in-
flation and increasing jobless-
ness had affected large numbers
of New Yorw Jews, declaring
that New York City has a larger
proportion of its Jewish com-
munity in the lower middle
class and working class and poor
than any other Jewish commu-
nity in the United States.
Rep. Abzug also cited an es-
timate by Sanford Solender,
executive vice president of the
Federation of Jewish Philan-
thropies, that if the city govern-
ment would be unable to con-
tinue its share of support for
Federation programs, matching
funds from the federal and state
Governments would be withheld,
involving a loss of $700,000 a

services in Federation-supported
institutions, including a com-

and consultation services of the
Jewish Family Service.
Gold also cited the loss of
city support by Jewish social
agencies, the layoffs of Jewish
teachers in large numbers and
the threat of loss of services for
the Jewish aged.
He warned that the city's fi-
nancial trouble* would cause

Dear Jenny,
I've enjoyed reading your col-
umn you're almost like hav-
ing oar own Dear Abbyl I
haven't noticed a letter yet from
a "single parent," and with that
double name goes two sets of
problems. (That name is actual-
ly a misnomer: try Instead "dou-
ble-duty parent.") I know there
are many single fathers and
mothers in our area, so I hope
you'll print this first one, and
perhaps some of them may even
write in their own answers.
Do I have to expect to
wait until I'm 50 before I can
hope to enjoy the personal com-
panionship of another person,
without the demands on my time
and energy of children at home?
Realizing that I can love
both my children and another
person (quite a milestone in my
life), how can I comfortably
maintain these two separate
identities? Is it fair to call those
persons selfish who have to
"accommodate" to a family sit-
uation and share responsibili-
Please advise If the JFCS has

singlesany age, all situations.
Trying To Be "With-It"
Dear "With-it."
Jenny has asked me to answer
this question and has turned
your letter over to me. Your let-
ter opens many avenues of
thought and, like all good ques-
tions, brings to mind more ques-
tions. I hope that our readers
will share some of their solu-
tions with us because I believe
we can learn a great deal from
one another.
Your first question addresses
the area of personal responsi-
bility, its extended boundaries
and its limitations. Indirectly,
you ask what each individual
owes himself and what priority
this personal debt occupies in
a hierarchy of responsibilities
and demands. This in turn poses
the converse auestion. Can the
needs of others be satisfied
without the surrender of one's
own individuality?
This is a difficult question
with many responses possible.
Of course we surrender some of
our Individuality when we be-
come parents: through a simple
metamorphosis we become
known as Susie's mommv or
Jimmy's daddy, or the all-inclu-
sive Grandma and Grandpa,
which does not even re-
quire a name after it. The
enormous satisfactions of be-|
longing to this great class of j
adults is a mixed blessing. No|
one has greeted loss of identity
with open arms, and the noveltv |
of membership soon wears off. |
Even in the more traditional I
two-oarent family, we see ev*- (
dence of the vea rains toward J
fulfillment and the deeper mean-1
ing of self expressed time and >
In a single-parent home, how
much greater this yearning cap
be when the natural interaction
of two adults in denied. Satisfy-
ing the need for personal com-
panionship need not threaten
the love and care bestowed upon
the children in the home. It
should enhance it. Any effective
relationship reauires balance
and any break in that balance
sets up a chain of adverse
responses. While the balance of
a one-parent family cannot be
completely restored by the ad-
dition of a "stranger," it can be
a link in the mending of the
chain of relationships.
Following this line of reason-
ing, we can move to your ques-
tion about the blending of two
relationships, love of vour chil-
dren and the love of another
You ask about the mainten-
ance of separate identities, and
I can onlv wonder at vour defi-
nition of identities. We all have
many identities. Each of our
children knows a different par-
ent. There is an identity uniaue
to the husband-wife relation-
ship, another with friends and
neighbors, or with family, and
a totally different one in our job
or professional capacity. We
have enormous practice in
maintaining these separate iden-
tities. Without them we could
not survive.
What you are asking is per-
mission to weave another thread
into the fabric of your life. Be-
cause it means so much to you,
you fear it is a thread that will
obliterate other threads and
cause the fabric to be ripped.
This does not have to be so.
Each experience we have, each
positive expression of love, can
only strengthen the essential
ego. There are accommodations
in all new marriages. Unlike a
first marriage, the children are
potential vocal dissidents, call-
ing out their own needs. Chil-
dren, however, do not always
know the scope of their needs.
Thus, thev cannot be expected
to establish their own para-
meters. They need to be led
into the new relationship and
helped in the process of their
absorption. The adult who
moves with assurance and a
minimum of guilt into new. un-
charted areas provides the
cushion to fend off anxieties.
JFCS does plan open discus-
sion groups for single parents
or serious singles of any age.
A workshop was held on Nov.
1 in conjunction with the Jew-
ish Singles. We hope this will
provide the kickoff tor a num-
ber of smaller group meetings
in the JFCS office.

Still Silent Voices

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Daniel
Moynihan put the General Assembly anti-Zionist
vote well when he deelarbd it an "infamous act"
What the vote declares is that the leadership
of the world is bankrupt. We have nothing to say
about those who voted for the resolution.
Their hatred, their pitiable backward ignor-
ance, their expediency in the name of "African
emergence" and Arab "liberation" all this is
But what we do point our accusing finger at
are the nations that abstained or "absented" them-
selves European, Latin American, Oriental
They knew better. But they sat silently by,
destroying principle in the name of their own piti-
able ignorance and expediency. With their voices,
the United Nations and human decency might have
been saved.
Without them, the die is cast.
Welcome To CJFWF
The problems facing Jews today are extraordinarily
complex and serious. It would not be far-fetched to
characterize them as critical.
Whether we are talking about Jewish identity prob-
lems in America or the sheer survival of Jews in Arab
lands or Jews trying to reach freedom from the prison
that is the Soviet Unkm or the future of Israel any
of these would quahfy for inclusion in the category of
"Jews in Crisis."
It is largely to this and its related themes that the
44th General Assembly of the Council of Jewish Fede-
rations and Welfare Funds will be addressing itself
when some 3,000 delegates gather here for Assembly
sessions Nov. 19 to 23.
We welcome this distinguished gathering to our
South Florida community and are honored that the G.A.
has chosen our midst for its serious deliberations.
Awesome Responsibilities
There is hardly an area of Jewish concern that the
delegates will fail to consider in the rich variety of their
plenary and workshop sessions.
For our own part, American Jewry must face up
not only to its own ideological crises but to the crisis
in fund-raising for Jewish needs at home and abroad.
In a time of increasing economic difficulty, this is
a most awesome Jewish responsibility. It is especially
awesome reckoned in terms of political and economic
considerations not uniquely Jewish to which, as Amer-
icans, we must respond and deal with at the same time
that global Jewish needs remain as urgently ongoing
as ever.
Add to this new factors in the American Jewish
dilemma, a growing anti-Semitism emerging here out
of the still-unresolved Middle East dilemma, and the
American Jewish burden seems incalculably profound.
World Jewry-A Grave View
But, as we have said, serious and even critical as
these are, they represent only one facet of world Jewry's
problems today. Others include:
What can Israel look forward to in the two or
three years ahead, faced as she is with monumental
economic problems all her own?
Is the Israeli isolation from the mainstream of
world sympathy reflective of a general Jewish isolation
in the diaspora, as well?
What hope is there for Middle East Jewry out-
side of Israel?
> Meeting Jewish needs in a period of unemploy-
ment and inflation what are the realistic possibilities?
New horizons for women's roles in Jewish lead-
ership how extensive are they?
These and a host of other considerations are what
the Council of Jewish Federations and Welfare Funds
will be looking at during the 44th General Assembly
It is a G.A. that will prove to be both memorable
and historic if we judge on no other basis than the
gravity of the problems hanging in the balance.

must earn it.
This takes a singular willing-
ness to be humiliated, to do
meaningless work on meaning-
less committees as a public
confession of fledgling status.

This is political reasoning,
but it isn't the first time the
judges have reasoned political-
ly when they had to decide
about retiring.
POLITICS Is never very far
from the Supreme Court, from
the time a President starts to
pick a new judge right op to
the tune he gives way to an-
other. In the case of Justice
Douglas his refusal to retire
just happens to be more naked-
ly political than usual.
But it is also something more.
Douglas doesn't want to give up
his self-image easily. He is frail,
he must get physical therapy,
he sits silently through the Su-
preme Court sessions when one*
he asked barbed questions from
the bench.
But he still sees himself as
he once wasthe daring young
man on the flying Washington
trapeze, defying the Establish-
ment to the end.
He has done everything,
been everywhere. He has brok-
en whole clusters of rules in
his marriages, his activisms, his
flirtations with presidential
politics, his walking tours, his
travels, his mountain climbing,
his lecturing, his my find or"
books. Like Tennyson's Ulysses,
he feels stronglv about "how
dull it is to Dause/to rest on-
burnished, not to shine in use."
There is an often-teld Su-
preme Court story about Justice
Stephen J. Field, a West Coaster

PARIS (JTA) The Fsench
decision to recognize the PLO
has given rise to wide-sDread
protests. A French Senator.
Pierre Giraud, Paris Socialist.
has already submitted a parli-
amentary question, and a Cen-
trist Deputy, Jacaues Soustelle,
was due to raise the issue when
the National Assembly (Lower
House) reconvened.
The parliamentary groun of
the Reformist Party, lad by
Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber,
held an emergency session to
discuss this issue, and several
other French political parties
are planning similar meetings.
THE FRENCH Jewish com-
munity is also reacting with un-
common anger. The Representa-
tive Council of French Jewish
Organizations (CRIF) held an
emergency session and will ask
its president, Jean Rosenthal,
to convev the Jewish commu-
nity'* feelings to the French au-
Other French Jewish organ-
izations are also nlanninc an-
neals to the authorities and to
public opinion.
Jewish and pro-Israeli circles
in France fear that Fraace's
pro-PLO initiative might be fol-
lowed by a number of other
West European countri-s This
is the main reason why these
circles and organizations plan
to press their protests with the
utmost energy to obtain a re-
versal of the government's de-
throughout Western Europe
plan to stage .similar protests,
mass meetings end anneals to
public opinion stressing that
PLO recognition would endan-
ger the precariously established
peace which now seems to reign
in the Middle East.
Israeli diplomats in West
European capitals have report-
edly been instructed to call on
the various foreign ministries
and make Israel's Dosition clear.
In Paris, the Israeli Charge
d'Affaires. Minister Mordechai
Drori. was expected to call at
the Ouai d'Orsav and deliver
an official protest.
ISRAEL'S feelings have been
further ruffled bv France's re-
cent agreement to a common
declaration bv the foreign
ministers of the EEC condemn-
ing the United Nations resolu-
tion on Zionism and racism.
Israeli circles here describe
the French attitude as "hypo-
critical" apd hope President
Giscard d'Estaing will recon-
sider his position.
Israeli diplomats here were
told France had informed its
European oartners in advance,
before announcing its decision.

European governments saw fit
to inform Israel in turn.

derivation of the term "B*-

Basically, every benediction
either begins its first verse or
last verse with the terra

to the word "knee," implying
that in making some benedic-
tions man bends the knee in
servitude and acknowledgement
of the Almighty. Others read
into this word the idea that in
"bending the knee" one
"spreads" himself in space. This
implies that the Almighty
"spreads" his Grace over man
and all creatures in the universe
by letting all living creatures
ervov His providence. Such a
translation is more in keeping
with the meaning of the general
term "benediction."

Squabble Over Aid Cuts
Not Seen as a Problem

Questions raised by Israel over
the Ford administration's pro-
posals for American economic
and military assistance to Israel
"will not create a problem be-
tween the United States and Is-
rael," the State Department said
"Obviously, the whole thing
will be discussed on the Hill."
Department spokesman Robert
Anderson said. He was referring
to congressional scrutiny of the
S4.7 billion aid program that
included $2.24 billion for Israel
and $750 million for Egypt.
raised by Israeli Ambassador
Simcha Dinitz with Secretary of
State Henry A. Kissinger, the
State Department said. Ander-
son said "those questions are in
the process of being resolved."
Israeli Premier Yitzhak Rabin
told his cabinet meanwhile that
the administration's proposal
was $60 million less than Israel
was promised by Kissinger dur-
ing the Sinai negotiations. He
also said that $1.24 billion of
the proposed aid was in loans
although Israel had understood
that two-thirds of the U.S. as-
sistance would be grants.
In another development, An-
derson said that he expected to
have "something later" on the
report that the United States
will notify the International
Labor Organization in Geneva
that it is withdrawing from that
United Nations bodv.

Those Disturbing Christmas /Chaiiukah Celebrations
Temole Israel
West Palm Beach
At this season of Chanukah
a troubling and bothersome is-
ue raises its head once more,
namely, that of church-state
separation. Why at this time
and rarelv at other tim.'s? Ob\i-
ously. this is because of the us.ial
proximity of the Jewish holiday
of Chanukah and the Christian
holidav of Christmas, and of the
attempts that have been made,
particularlv in the public-school
systems of our nation, to weld
these two holidays into a gen-
eral public-school religious ob-
servance. Christmas assemblies. _
pageants, songs and parties
have long been on the American
scene in the public schools, and I
now, with a recocnition bv many
school svstems of the existence
of the Jewish people. Chanukah
assemblies, naeeants sons and
parties are nart of that same j
scene. '
As the current ioke relates,
there is some good news in this
and there is so-; bad news too.
First, the good news. It is about
time that teachers, principals. I
school boards and the public J
realize that this is not a "Chris-
tian" country, but that we are".
rather, a nation comnosed of i
numerous religions and ethnic I
groups, all of which have an
eaual right to exist and whose
holidays and observances should
be recognized. This point has
ben made abundantly clear,
particularly in those school dis-
tricts where there is a laree I
concentration of Jewish stu-
Now the bad news. Very sim-
ply, anv religious celebration

United States when it is spon-

lic moneys. Of course, it will be

To get right to the msior is-

there was a aiixture of church
and state in whi^h the affairs
of one become oloseiv and in-
extricably bound with the other,
the Jews have come out on the
short end.
Though we like to think that
the Christian com-iunitv has
recognized the rightful place of
Judaism and the Jewish rteoole
in our multiethnic society, this
is not wholly true. We ootikl

Rachel's tomb.
"And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to
Ephrath the same is Bethlehem. And Jacob set up a
pillar upon her grave (Gen. 35.19-20).
VAYISHLAH Approaching the boundary of the
land of Seir where his brother Esau dwelt, Jacob pru-
dently sent messengers ahead to inform Esau of his
coming and of his wealth. The messengers returned with
the news that Esau was advancing toward Jacob with
400 men. Terrified, Jacob divided his camp into two
sections, so as not to lose all in the event of an attack.
He sent gifts to Esau and prayed God to save him from
his brother. Jacob crossed the stream of Jabbok with
his camp. There, as he stood alone, an angel'approached
and wrestled with him. At the end of the struggle, the
angel declared: "Thy name shall be called no more Ja-
cob, but Israel; for thou hast striven with God and with
men, and hast prevailed" (Genesis 32.29). Thus encour-
aged, Jacob met Esau, whom he treated with the utmost
deference. Embracing, the two brothers kissed, wept,
and were reconciled. Jacob journeyed on to Shechem.
There the rape of Jacob's only daughter, Dinah, by the
prince of that city, led to the vengeful destruction of
Shechem by two of Dinah's brothers. Proceeding to
Beth-el, Jacob kept the vow he had made to return
thither. On the way, Rachel gave birth to Jacob's last
and youngest son, Benjamin. But Rachel died in child-
birth, and Jacob buried her on the way to Ephrath,
which is Beth-lehem.

Chanukah 5736
Chanukah is the most ambigu-
ous of Jewish holidays. Of all
the festivals based on ancient
historical events, we know more
about the date of the occurrence
(165 b.c.e.) and the circum-
stances (the return of the Jeru-
salem Temple to the worship of
God from Syrian paganism)
than of any other holy day. As
clear as this is, the origins of
kindling candles for each of the
eight nights of the holiday are
obscure. Even the rabbis of the
Talmud were hard-pressed to
make the association between
the return of the Temple to Jew-
ish worship and the rituals that
had grown up around Chanukah.
Although Chanukah is prob-
ably the most widerv observed
holiday in Jewish homes, there
is virtually no traditional tia-
gogal recognition of the festi-
val. However, most svnagoejuea
do plan some public observance
of the holiday. Even the most
traditional of Jews are not re-
quired to abstain from work or
attend special worship services.
Long before Christian observ-
ance of Christmas pervaded the
world of the Jew, Chanukah
held excitement and Joy for
Jewish children. Games and
plays end special foods added
other dimensions to a holiday
remarkably monolithic in its
purpose. Interaction with the
Christian world has onrv added
to the importance of Chanukah
as a period of special light and
gladness in the darkest season
of the year.
For the modern Jew. Chaau-
kah'6 meaniag transcends can-
dle-lighting, gifts for children
and lathes. Of central signifi-
cance is the recognition that an
individuals ralUrion must be his
own choice, not the choice of
the overnrnent under which he
lives. The Maccabees of more
than 2,000 years ago recognized
this principle, which still eludes
governments all over the world.
Thus, out of the reioicing over
a significant victory in the his-
tory of the Jewish -people, and
gift-giving and candle-lighting,
there emerges the resolve that
every human beingin every
part of the worldmust be free
to worship in the style that best
suits his needs and his way of
Me. And umil everyone lives
in complete freedom to worship
as he wishes, the messn"s of
Chanukah win not be fulfilled.

quested" to participate. State-
sponsored, school-sponsored, re-
lieious celebrations are iust not

there is the historically accurate
observation that they are uncon-
stitutional and must be fought

celebration of Jewish holidays

bors in a noncomnetitive and

Social Disturbance
An expert on Israel's social
problems predicted here that
if the new interim accord In
Sinai heralds a period of
quiet on Israel's borders,
simmering social tensions in
Israel will erupt, poesihiy
with violence, within the
next two years.
That warning was given
by Or. Eltezer Jatfe of the
Hebrew University to mem-
bers of the United Jewish
Appeal Study Mission who
met with him after a tour of
Jerusalem slums and were
visibly shocked by the di-
mensions of Israel's social
gap as expressed in statis-
tics recited by Dr. Jaffe.

Added Mitchell: "If there is
any reliRious group in America
that has always stood with us
against racial injustice, it is the
people of the Jewish faith. To
single them out is doubly ob-

lions in the world who want to

United Nations Daniel Moyni-

labeled the appearance of Gen.
Idi Amin of Uganda before the
UN as an "obscence act." told
the General Assembly after it
passed the resolution. "There
will be time enough to contem-
plate the harm this act will have
done the United Nations."
He added that "The General
Assembly today grants svmbolic
amnesty and more to the mur-
derers of the six-million Euro-
pean Jews. Evil enough in it-
self, but more ominous by far
is the realization that now
presses upon us: the realization
that, if there were no General

JUSTICE Robert Grier was
not only getting old. he was also
a man of confused mind, who
showed some of his confusion
in the historic Legal Tender
cases. Field headed a commit-

him to retire.

HE HAS had a longer service
on the court than any judge in
its history. He knows that the
next 15 months, until a newly

He feels that to yield this

r Yadin Spotlights
Discovery of Citadel
YAWN, YIGAEL. Baser: the Faeiacassry of a
Great Ctaaeet ef the Bible. New Yeah: Ran-
dom Heese, 1PTS. 2tt p. Inua,
JJAZOR RHYMES with maker" "inakor" in
Hebrew means source, and "The Source"
by James Michener. is the popular and his-
torically accurate novel which recreates layer
by layer the story of this unique city is the
Uahlee of Israel.
Yadin was drawn to Hazor as a PhD can-
didate in archaeology researching the art of
warfare in biblical lands. (This thesis was nab-
lished in 1963 in a very attractive format which
his later works such as "Maseda." "Ber-Kolch-
be" and now "Hazor" duplicate.)
It was an enormous city spanning a large
geographical area with unusual features. Yadin
knew that Hazor played an important role in
the history of Canaan it biblical times. There-
fore, he anticipated a fruitful dig.
THE EXCAVATIONS at Hazor, which span-
ned the summers of 1955-58, were carried out
as a classic archaelogical dig: uncovering over
20 strata at the "tell" (an ancient mound)
which covered a span of 3.000 years.
As altars, tunnels, vessels and figurines are
discovered in every strata, Yadin recreates for
us the cultures that must have used these ob-
jects. Because of earlier excavations eieewhere
in Israel, the Hazor team is able to compare
findiags and arrive at fascinating conclusions.
It fc found that one of the strata was a city
built by King Solomon. This is confirmed after
comparing mason marks on the stones from the
Megiddo dig with those at Hazor.
THE TELL" provides the archaeologists
with seme extraordinary insights into ancient
Palestinian life. Numbers of jars are found
beneath most of the floors (beaten-eerth) in
stratum 3. Upon opening several of these Jars,
they are seen to be infant burials.
Originally thought to be child sacrifices,
these burials were common practiosburying
dead infants under the floor of homes so they
might continue to live near their families.
Archaeological terminology in "Hazor" is
simr-lv explained. Drawings and photographs
are clearly marked next to the appropriate text.
A colorful table of strata and chronology at
the end of the book is an excellent relevance
tool with which to follow the dig.
YADIrVS ENTHUSIASM is contagious. Like
his previous works, tins book Is written for the
lav person. Yadin uses a variety of literary
techniques and an engrossing format through-
out the text to encourage the reader to par-
ticipate hi the dig. and to empathize with the
team in the unfelding drama.
The dig at Hazor confirmed a number of
hypotheses with which the team began: Joshua.
not Deborah, destroyed Jabtn, the Canaanite
King of Hasor; Solomon rebuilt Hsaor, and the
biblical account of the city indeed follows the
histery of Hazor during the rule of the kings
et Israel.
A Sonjj That May Yet
Make Israel's Hit Parade
A NEW song written by Nomi Shemer almost
inevitably heads fee the top of the Hit
Parade. The popular writer, who usually dees
both worde and music fee her hits, has a
knack far capturing the meed and spirit ef the
people ef Israel and tiamtstiag them into tunes
and verses which reflect the times.
Perhaps best known of her sonar* ia "Jeru-
salem ef Geld." which ahnest overnight became
a national anthem and will long be identified
with a thrilling episode in the history of the
Jewish people. It was the right song, at the
right time. Yet Nomi Shemer has written so
many other top favoritessongs that are on the
lips of every Israelithat it is clear she is a
creative and talented artist.
HAVING SAID all this, I most report that
her newest song, although widely discussed,
and the subset of critical articles in the press,
is net performed on Israel radio, is not in the
repertoire of any popular singers and is Mt
available en records er tapes anywhere to Ia-
The controversial song is entitled "The Sar-
dine and the Shark," anl the allegorical refer-
ence to the present Middle Eastern situation
is all too clear.
In catchy verse, the ballad tells of a little
sasdine swimming off the shores ef Eilat. or
mawbe Fl Arish. He me-ts 1 shark, and of
course neUtahr says "shslnm."
On tMne leads *o another, and to Placate
the shark, the sardine gives un bis teal some
flee fro** his hhy. seme scales from his bacfc,
bet ""'''"" b*|ne
W DESPERATION, the sardine tells his foe
that for a real and lasting osace he is erenared
te give everything. Hearing this, the shark
relnts. utters tee ""ssic word "neace" bares
his f enth and swallows the sardine whole. At
last. flow"s. peace and love; not a wave nor a
rirmle in the water. The shark swims neace-
fully on the shores of Eilat, or El Arish, and
there is none to disturb him.
If it is true that we are indeed a sardine,
then we are lost anvhow in this world of sharks.
The comparison of !** 1 to a "ulenerable little
public has not yet heard the song.
A NEW release from Nomi Shemer should
by now already have achieved considerable
popularity. We investigated.
Ne record store here in Haifa, or in Tel
Ariv. has the song. "Not available they say.
The recording companies are tight-lipped.
But m view of our inquiry, and indication
that her public would welcome her music, she
may rouse herself and put the song on the
market. "The Sardine and the Shark" may yet
make the Hit Parade.
