New Budget Staggers Israel
With Greatest Burdens Yet
JERUSALEM (JTA) The cabinet has begun what
is expected to be a prolonged and bitter debate over the
IL 84.2 billion austerity budget submitted by Finance Min-
ister Yehoshua Rabinowitz for the next fiscal year.
The draft budget, strongly backed by Premier Yitzhak
Rabin and the Bank of Israel, which helped to shape it, rep-
resents the beginning of a three-to-four-year effort to put
Israel's severely strained economy in order by drastic cuts
in government expenditures and, hopefully, substantial in-
creases in income from taxes and an invigorated export
ALREADY dubbed the New
Economic Program (NEP), the
budget would demand major
sacrifices from the public in the
form of higher prices, new
taxes, reduced services, lower
living standards and, most pain-
ful of all, a sharp increase in

planning authority conceded
that employment would soar to

pared to 37,000 this year if the
new budget is adopted.

Because of the anti-Zionist
resolution passed in November
by the UN General Assembly,
emphasis was on the ways and
means of increasing tangible
support for Israel. The confer-

Israel Bonds program.
Known officially as the Jeru-
salem Conference of Jewish
Solidarity, the conference's
leaders, including Michael Ar-
non, president and chief execu-
tive officer of State of Israel

New Budget Staggers Israel
With Greatest Burdens Yet
Continued from Page 1-
of 20 Israelis would be jobless
next year and the unemploy-
ment rate would rise to 64,000
in 1977.
IN 1978, the Treasury pre-
dicts, the unemployment rate
would begin a slow decline, lev-
eling off at about 56,000 that
The proposed budget, chal-
lenged at the outset by various
cabinet members whose minis-
tries would be affected by the
reduced spending, was bitterly
attacked by Histadrut, which
charged that the heaviest burd-
en would fall on wage earners.
The budget evoked unhappy
memories of Israel's economic
stagnation of the raid-1960Ts,
which was reversed only by the
outbreak of the Six Day War in
SOME economists say the
Treasury is overestimating the
increased iacome from taxes
and other sources and was too
optimistic about the beneficial
results of the austerity program
The new budget exceeds the
current one by II. 21 billion
but in real terms is actually 5
percent lower because of infla-
It reflects Israel's immense
defense burdens. Of the pro-
posed IL 84.2 billion. IL 25 bil-
lion is earmarked for defense
The education ministry would
get IL 3.16 billion and the health
ministry IL 1 billion.
THE BUDGETS of all other
ministries would fall below the
IL 1 billion mark.
The Treasury hopes to cush-
ion the impact of unemployment
by transfering about 10u/)t0
workers from public service to
productive industries over the
next four years and by intro-
ducing new incentives for for-
eign investors who, presumably,
would create new jobs.
It hopes to add to the govern-
ment's income by imposing the
long projected 5 percent added
value tax, tightening up on tax
colWtkn procedures and audit-
ing "cash transactions," a com-
mon form of tax evasion.
EXPORT intensive industries
would be granted tax exemp-
tions and would be protected
from the periodic devaluation of
the pound. The same induce-
ments would apply to foreign
The government would dras-
tically reduce its subsidies for
basic food products and public
transportation which have kept
prices in those areas more or
less stable up to now. The price
of bread for example, could be
expected to go up by more than
60 percent.
Israelis would pay more for
fuel, water and electricity. Road
construction would coma to a
virtual halt, as would the con-
struction of public buildings.
The waiting period for new
telephones, already as long as
three years in some areas, would
be lengthened even more.
ALTHOUGH the government
promises no more major de-
valuations of the pound, the
so called "creeping devalua-
tion," a l-to-2 percent de-
preciation every 30 days
would continue. The pound,
which now stands at 7.1 to $1
would decline to IL 10 to U by
the end of 1976.
The new budget would elim-
inate state financing for ninth
grade education. Education min-
ister Aharon Yadun said, at a
c->bint meeting that his minis-
try could not function under
tie nronosed allotments even
though they exceed the budgets
of all other minorities except
He warned that education in
Israel would deteriorate serious-
ly. Health Minister Victor Shem-
tov told reporters that while he
supported any move to keep the
lid on spending, it was a grave
error to slash government-
supported health services be-
cause "people's lives are affect-
ed, and ultimately this hits at
the nation's security."
HOUSING Minister Avraham
Ofer warned of wholesale un-
employment in the housing in-
dustry and a serious slowdown
in home building.
Even the reduced budget
would leave Israel with an fL
3.5 billion deficit next year, but
that would be an improvement
over this year's IL 5 billion
While every cabinet minister
is expected to put up a last
ditch fight) for Ins budget needs
the cabinet as a whole realizes
that without compromise the
mtional government simply
cannot continue. Nevertheless,
hard bargaining- is expected dur-
ing the months, ahead.
The government also an-
nounced a IS percent sales tax

aimed at speculators. No tax
will be imposed on the redemp-

A 'Catch-22' World
The conflicting reports and counter:reports con-
cerning Mexico's vote for the anti-Zionist resolution at
the United Nations leaves the ordinary observer baffled.
The bafflement precedes most of the Jewish organ-
ma] efforts to encoi a tourist boycott of Mex-
ican vote. In tact, it K

The latest Mexican vote would speak for itself if
all of us were not assured just a week ago that the dif-
ferences between Israel and Mexico had been settled
as a "misunderstanding."
What makes it all impossible now is that the Israel
Government itself has apparently let it be known that a
secret agreement between the two countries approved
the latest Mexican anti-Zionist vote at the UN with the
proviso that Mexico would agree never to vote that way
Absurd? "Catch-22"?
Yes and that is why it is almost impossible to say
more than that for now.
Contagion is Spreading
The first direct consequence of the shameful series
of anti-Zionist resolutions at the United Nations was
the downtown Jerusalem explosion three days later
which killed many people and injured even more. The
most recent was the terrorist nurder of Yeshiva students
at Ramat Magshirram.
The General Assembly majority, in adopting the
measures along with two pro-Palestine Liberation Or-
ganitation resolutions, were attacking, and continue to
attack, the legitimacy of the State of Israel and of Ju-
daism itself.
The countries that support these resolutions are
giving their approval to terrorists to kill innocent men,
women and children, since after all these innocent men,
women and children are nothing but racists and "set-
tlers," as they call all Israelis.
More to the point now is that such resolutions also
endanger Jewish communities abroad and not alone
in the Soviet Dnion and Syria, where Jews have long
been harassed and imprisoned.
The contagion is spreading.
Income Tax Woes
There is absolutely nothing mitigating in the grim
economic news coming from Israel these days as the
latest budget and projected unemployment figures in-
On the other hand, there is the announcement that
the Income Tax Commission will be auditing the returns
of some 2,200 persons to see if the have been carrying
their fair share.
If nothing else, the announcement demonstrates
that there are at least some Israelis in the high income
bracket a fact one would never be likely to realize
judging either from the grim news or from the hard
realities of daily life in that country.
In fact, the announcement tends to make Israel's
economic squeeze more understandable to the average
American, also struggling under the burden of high
taxes, if not as high as Israel's, and also forever com-
plaining that not enoimh people pay their fair share.

because the terra Zionism had
not been clearly defined, the

She added that if Zionism

llistadrut Attacks Budget
TEL AVIV (JTA) Histadrut officials bitterly
attacked the government's proposed authority budget
on grounds that the sacrifices demanded of the public
fell moat heavily on fhe ordinary wage earner who will
suffer Wo* from higher prices, reduced services and
increased 'taxation.
Histadrut Secretary General Yeruham Meshel ab-
ruptly cancelled a meeting he was to have had with
Finance Minister Yehoshua Rabrnowtrz over the "New
Economic Plan." He and other trade union leaders were
angry over the government's failure to consult with
Histadrut before making its proposals public.
THEY ALSO charged that the reduced living stand-
ards entailed by the government's belt-tightening would
be far more severe than the 2-tc-3 percent drop estim-
ated by Treasury officials.
Histadrut leaders said fhey were not opposed to all
aspects of the program. Israedh workers, Meshel said,
are aware of the economic situation and are willing
10 shoulder the burden if the sacrifices are equal for
all segments of the population.
Mapam circles in Histadrut charged that the' gov-
ernment made no effort to tax capital income and that
all of its proposed econoenies were directed at the wage
MESHEL AND others expressed particular concern
over the increased unemployment the new budget
would produce and said they would keep a careful watch
over the government's proposed plan to transfer work-
ers from service to production industries.
Rabinowitz promised no more masetve devaluations
of the pound, but the periodic devaluations of up to 2
percent every 3U days authorized by toe government
last spring will continue.
'The public seemed most concerned with the news
that in addition to higher taxes payable to the govern-
ment, municipal taxes would rise substantially because
the gotei nJOCifl will be cutting back Its subsidies to
local authorities.

Israel's fourth Prime Minister, Mrs. Golda Meir, re-

Florida Dec. 16 from Robert L. Siegel (left), general
campaign chairman, Greater Miami Israel Bonds Or-
ganization, and Moses Hornstein (right) of Hollywood,
chairman, Prime Minister's Club and Trustees o1 Israel
in South Broward County for the South Florida Israel
Bond Organization.
Moses Hornstein (right) presented the inscribed sterl-
ing-silver Twelve Tribes of Israel award to Mrs. Meir,
cofounder of the State of Israel Bonds programs. Mrs.
Meir was honored as "Woman of the Century" at a din-
ner attended by 2,2000 men and women representing
South Florida's Jewish community on Dec. 17 at the
Fontainebleau Hotel. Over $3 million in Israel Bonds
were purchased at the event, which commemorated 25
years of State of Israel Bonds.

Anger at UNESCO Leads To Walkout

agams. the adoption Dec. 17 of
, Yugoslav sponsored draft
resolution which included
clause calling ttention to the
W General Assembly vote for
,he mrasure equating Zionism
wjth racism.
Several other countries,
among them Norway Ecuador.
Austria and Venezuela, remain-
ed in the hall but are refusing
to participate in the proceedings
or have served notice that they
will vote against the final docu-
The walkout countries in-
cluded eight member states of

munitv the ninth. Luxem-
bourg, was absent and Aus-
tralia and Canada. Mexico also.
was absent and ooycotted the
LETTERS bitterly condemn-i
ing the Yugoslav amendment
were sent to the conference
chairman by the U.S. delegate,
Donald F. Stowe. and the Italian
delegate. Ludovico Carducci
Artcnisio, on behalf of the Com-
mon Market states.
A letter stressing that thei
amendment was "in flam-ant
contradiction of the declared
aims of the meeting" was sub-
mitted by the Israeli delegate,
Avraham Primor.
The conference chairman.
Joseph Crohman of Czechoslo-
vakia, refused to read the let-
ters to the conference on
grounds that such a step was
contrary to UNESCO procedure.
But the effect was obvious to all
delegates and spectators. The
conference hall in the UNESCO
building was half empty as a
result of the walkout and the |
absence of many other dele- j
cates. who preferred to remain
outside while awaiting instruc-1
tions from their governments.
THE CRISIS ws nrecloitat-d
Drc. 17. when UNESCO voted
36-22 with seven abstentions to
include in a draft resolution a
reference to the UN General
Assembly's Nov. 10 vote iden-
tifying Zionism as a form of
racism The resolution itself
was concerned with how the
world news media should deal
with subjects such as racism
and war propaganda.
The draft resolution will go be-
fore the UNESCO general con-
ference when it convenes in
Nairobi in October. 1976. Adop-
tion of the anti-Zionist refer-
ence against powerful objec-
tions from the Western states
and Israel was another example
of the well-oiled Arab-Commu-
mst-Third World machinery at
work in a UN agency.
But their "triumph" this time
was less than impiessive. Many
countries, including Mexico,
hoycotted the vote with the re-
s ment was adopted bv less than
j quarter of the UNESCO mem-
ber states 36 out of 136. Is-
rael nevertheless took a serious
view of the matter.
IN A STATEMENT before the
vote, Pnmor urged delegates to
defeat the amendment "so as to
op UNESCO's moral and
spiritual decadence." He said
ne measure "is not only a ref-
erence to a General Assembly
^ote but is a blow to Israel's
"fry.vexistence" 8ince Zionism
is the ideology which helps
*ws regain their national iden-
"t> and dignity." Israeli sources
'd they considered the vote
*" because it will be
Presented before all internation
a'organizations with unpredict-
ab|e results.

A senior Western source said
the walkout of the 12 nations
and the non-participation of a
number of others meant that
the Arab-Soviet bloc could not
"steamroll througn any resolu-
tion it wanted.
None of the Western states

conference. U.S. delegate Stowe
told the Jewish Telegraphic

HHH Urges Israel-Egypt Joint
Project for Betterment
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey
(D., Minn.) has urged the
American government to
take the lead in encouraging
Israel and Egypt to work to-
gether on a broad range of
educational and scientific
projects in the Sinai and for
the betterment of the Mid-
dle East.
"Let Israeli and Egyptian
doctors, scientists, archaeol-
ogists and fanners begin
working together and the
time will not be distant when
Prime Minister (Yitzhak)
Kabin and President (An-
war) Sadat faces each other
across the table," Humph-
rey declared.
HE ADDED, until there is
such face-to-face meeting nego-
tiations there will not be a true
peace in the Middle East.
Humphrey's remarks were
made at the Golden Jubilee
Scopus Awards Dinner of the
American Friends of the He-
brew University, where he re-
ceived the group's Judah L.
Megnss Award. Dr. Max M.
Kampelman. president of the
American Friends, announced
that the garden at Hebrew Uni-
versity's Mt. Scopus campus
will be named after Humphrey.
Also receiving 1975 Scopus
Awards at the dinner which
marked Hebrew University's

man of the United Jewish Ap-
peal, and Isaac Stern, the noted

the commencement of a com-
mitment of American troops to
fight for her, only the tools and
weapons to defend herself.
However, the Minnesota Sen-
ator stressed that "Israel's great
strength is not her spectacular
victories in battle ... it is the
emphasis she has placed on hu-
man resources."
Lautenberg stressed that "Is-
rael's future is dependent upon
its quality of life. It exists as a
Jewish homeland and that
must always be our first prior-
He said that "closing the edu-
cational and cultural gap" is "a
priority that holds the key to
the quality of life in Israel."
Lautenberg stated that what
American Jews are doing by

Bayh Says Strong Israel
Is Best Hope for "Peace
Birch Bayh (D.-Ind.) declared
on Sunday that the United
States "must maintain the mili-
tary strength of Israel and as-
sist in her economic develop-
ment'' because "a strong Israel
is still the best deterrent to ag-
gression and the best hope far
a lasting peace agreement."
Addressing a dinner of Ha-
poel Hamizrachi Women's Or-
ganization, Bayh warned that
the Ford Administration "has
failed to recognize the emerg-
ing arms imbalance, in the Mid-
dle East, an imbalance that
threatens to grow more unequal
in the next five years."
Bayh said the bonds between
Israel and the U.S. are unspoken
and that "the affinity that we
share Is impKctt "

ment and development. This no-
tion is implicit within Liberal
Judaism, where we not only ac-
cept change, but actually gc
looking for it.
Here are a few of the fa
changes that have taken place
that have made religion far
more meaningful and challeng-
ing in the present day than per-
haps in any other penod of his-
Yesterday's religion was
based upon bhnd faith in a
closed book received through
supernatural revelation. Tradi-
tion taught that God spoke to
Moses on the top of Mount Si-
nai, where He miraculously
gave His divine word in the
books of sacred scripture. This
was considered a fact of history
and the Bible a fact of truth.
Everything contained in that
Bible was the expression of
God"s will, and religion was the
simple procedure of blindly
obeying every jot and tittle of
that written law.
Liberal rebgion today offers
a variation on the theme It is
no longer necessary to rely
upon miracle, which denies
everything logic and reason
teach. We know that the Bible,
for all its greatness, was written
by men. like all other works of
This does not diminish its
genius. The Bible is great sim-
ply because it is great in wis-
dom, in beauty, in inspiration,
in search for truth regard-
less of its origin. It is an open
book, with right and wrong,
good and bad. truth and also
error contained within It And
that's its very wonderment.
Then. too. the business of re-
ligion has changed. In the old
days folks were concerned most-
ly with saving souls, here and
hereafter. The attainment of
Heaven and the avoidance of
Hell were the chief goals. Pro-
tection and prosperity were
what man sought of Gold, and
reward and punishment were
the main tools He employed.
But many men and women of
liberal faith today will have
none of this. The foremost prob-
lem of our own generation is the
saving of bodies more than of
souls, a concern with the here
far in excess with that of the
The Nuclear Age poses threat
of complete annihilation and
'.his threat will not be answered
merely by building weapons of
defense. We can be saved from
destruction only by building the
victory of moral truth.
Heaven and Hell are right
here on earth today. Protection
and prosperity are of our own
"f*'"g Reward and punish-
ment on Judgment Day will not
solve the probierns of the mo-
ment. The business of religion
has most certainly changed. Re-
ligion's business is to build men
on earth, morally capable of
dealing with the problems of
daily life.
Here is another fashion al-
teration. Rebgion of old was
personal, primary and private.
Today's religion is communal.
cooperative and corporate. The
time has gone when all you
need is to seek God for your
setf off in a corner, pray alone
by yourself for r>ersonal salva-
tion, hold as primary in your
own heart love and faith and

But we live in a different world

appeared, where the solitary :s

where personal and private are
the signs of the selfish and the

high costs of education and pro-

porate structure of ever-grow-
ing institutions. Effective reli-
gion today, like everything else,
is ar. expensive item which
everyone must share. We've got
to come out of the woods and
join with our fellow man.
There is one fashion change.
however, that may seem a bit
contradictory. The old-timers
bebeved rebgion a thing of the
masses- But present conditions
indicate that real rebgion will
touch only the few. Though
more people than ever belong
to synagogues, though more
money is being offered for the
programs of our massive institu-
tions, nevertheless we cannot
point to any genuine religious
revival or spiritual revolution.
In times of prosperity and
increased leisure synagogue
statistics improve, whether peo-
ple themselves actually improv?
or not. Genuine religion is ter-
ribly demanding. But how many
people will really change their
base patterns of living?
Most rabbis today do not even
hope for mass response. They
know that all their congregants
will not suddenly turn into hon-
est, loving, self-sacrificing souLs.
If a handful are touched by the
spirit of faith. >f an occasional
individual departs from his
temple feeling different than
when he entered, if one or two
people a year discover the reli-
gious essence of life, then most
rabbis would be quite proud and
It is in this sense we suggest
that while old-time rebgion was
supposedly for the masses, mod-
ern faith and piety will be only
for the few.
As a last fashion change to
consider, there is perhaps to be
discovered even a new approach
to God. In bygone times God's
function seemed to be primarily
to answer and reply. Man
sought favors and fortune
blessings from the Lord Man
v prayed and asked for
things, expecting God either to
grant or to deny his petitions
But many of us have now
created a totally different rela-
tionship with God that changes
his function into one of telline
and direction. For us. God plays
a higher role than that of the
benevolent father who magically
do*** things for us.
We are discovering that the
great powers of God really lie
within ourselves. All that we
have a right to ask for has al-
ready been given in the gift of
life. God gives life and wisdom
and opportunity-. What more
ought we expect?
Wn ne*<1 remm-Ts of what is
right and true. We need direc-
tion to keep us on the straight
path, and these God and faith
may still provide. But beyond
this point we are the masters of
destiny and the guardians of the
future. It is enough, then, just
to turn to God for strength and
reassurance, for guidance and
direction, with no more pleas
id begging and empty wish-

29 TEVETH 5:22
Moses and Aaron exhort Pharaoh to release the
"And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh"
lExod. 7.10).
'The Lord, the God of the Hebrews, hath sent me
unto thee, saying: Let My People go" (7.16).
VAERA God told Moses that He had first ap-
peared to Abraham. Isaac, and Jacob as El Shaddai. and
had made a covenant with the patriarchs to give them
the land of Canaan. Now. hearing the unhappy cry of
the children of Israel, the Almighty was reminded of
his covenant.
Pharaoh refused to let the children of Israel de-
part from the land of Egypt God brought seven plagues
on the Egyptians, in an attempt to force Pharaoh's
hand: blood, frogs, gnats, flies, murrain, boils, and hail
At first Pharaoh conceded to Moses, "I and my people
are wicked. Entreat the Lord, and let there be enough
of these mighty thundenngs and hail; and I will let
you go" < Exodus 9.27-28). But, when the plagues
stopped, Pharaoh's heart was hardened again, and he re-
fused to let the Israelites go.
Question: What is the par-
pose of the Tabs which is
worn during prayer?
Answer: The Talis which is
currently worn during prayer
was something that religious
Jews either in the past wore
con-tantly during the day. or.
even in the present, wear in a
more modest form called a "Ta-
the latter being worn
under one's jacket or shin. The
main feature in both of these is
the fringes which extend from
each of the four corners from
garment. This is meant to
fulfill the commandment in the
Numbers 15:38) which
They shall make them-
selves fringes on the corners of
their garments ." Since our
garments today are not four-
cornered garments, it is re-
quired to have a four cornered
garment especially made so that
fringes can be attached .<> each
of the corners. The word Talis
simply means cloak" or -gar.
Question: What is the pur-
pose of the fringes attached
to the fonr corners of the
Answer: The Bible itself ex-
plains that the purpose is so that
"You may look on it and remem-
ber all the commandments of
the Almighty so as to fulfill
them and not to be tempted
after the inclination of your
heart and mind by which you
can be lead astray" 15 39).
These fringes, therefore, are re-
minders of the necessary com-
mitment to be followed by the
Jew in fulfilling the command-
ments Commentaries further
state that the fringes remind us
th?t both man's body as
well as his soul belong
to the Almighty. The Sefer-
Ha-Chimech claims that the
fringes were once white and
blue because the white signifies
the body while the biue sym-
bolizes the souL Some claim the
blue represents royalty and the
white purity. This emphasizes
the necessity to preserve the
dignity of the body and the
purity of the soul through the
comma ndments.

Just what is it that accounts for some of the
miracles of healing reported? The answer is not de-
finite^ known, but it is speculated that the heavier
content of oxygen and the greater richness of the
violet rays are the responsible factors.

but for many other ailments it has been found cura-

One woman had trouble with her spine, writes
Moshe Brilliant, and had to wear a steel girdle. She
was cured. Another had a fractured bone which
would not heal. A short stay restored him to health.
The area is especially good for skin diseases.
The holv land is becoming a healing land.
Mr. Herzeg in his address at the United Na-
tions answering the Arab charge that Zionism is
racism referred to great numbers of Arabs who come
to the Israeli hospitals for healing.
IF WE could only find some healing for the
sickness of the United Nations itself. Perhaps a
change of climate would help it. A writer in the New
York Times recently suggested that the United Na-
tions should move to Uganda.

ANOTHER BRILLIANT leader and found-
er of Israel is also the subject of a new biog-
raphy. H. M. Blumberg in "Weizmann. His
Life and Time" has prepared a generous com-
pilation of photographs, history, and autobio-
graphical material to commemorate the cen-
tenary of Weizmann's birth. It is an impressive
work, hut overpriced.
It chronicles Weizmann's role in the
growth and development of Zionism, in the
struggle te frt*bt* the state of Israel, and as
Israel's first president.
IN 1M9. Weizmann tragically prophesied
the fate of the Jewish people: "the lesson which
Jewry has learnt in the last few terrible years
has forced them te a conclusion that unless
they secure a place which they may call their
home in a real sense of the word* they will be
faced by a terrible catastrophe."
Let the 72 UN delegates who voted that
Zionism is a farm of racism read these two
works for an accurate historical perspective
of what Zionism really is if they can read.

When Prof. Tbyabee sent word to the World
Jewish Congresa Landhn anninar of 19Sf thai
he not only believed in Jewish survival but con-
sidered it desirable, some of has Jewish antics
considered their quarrel with him cmsud. Here
he was. in effect, recanting, rubbing out his
bruising charactarizatkm of Jndainn as a "fas-

was slin the Arnold Toynbee who, in 1936.
after a long, long interview with Adosf Hitler,
had told nrirish loaders: "Hitler desires peace

It was the Arnold Toynbee who had.aaid of

ASA result of his experience in Russia, Hillel Ruskin's think-
ing and philosophy so far as sports is concerned, has
changed considerably. First, he is depressed over the fact that
a study he made at Hebrew University indicated that 51 per-
cent of deaths in Israel were due to the failnre of the cardio-
vascular systems.
It was established that this was due te the fact that oruy
3 percent of the population is active during leisure time. He
says, "I still think it is important to win a game, but to win
at all costs, which is what many colleges and high schools want
to do, is all wrong.
"THIS IS one of the dangers of competitive sportyoa
cheat and you he without realizing it, in order to win. Even in
Israel I have problems convincing our government that we
must involve more people in physical educational and recrea-
tional programs and step catering to a small number of ath-
letes. I would like to see Israel competitive In International
basketball and other sports, but would rather see more Israelis
healthy and alive.
Tn our institution we have 18,000 students. We used te
have 200 athletes and no one else. What sense does that make
to better so few? I was at fault and I set ont to change things.
1 HAVE studied every piece of writing I can on the psy-
chology of aggressive sport, on behavior, on liletisae' sports. I
have spoken to eveiyhody who will listen, preachmg the mes-
sage that people must exercise in order to live, h really doesn't

he instructed m sports se that they can participate after the
age of 30. Most of them dent realize that when they hit 30 they
are reauy old people, plrysiologically speaking. You cant play
soccer or baseball or basketball any more because you have dif-
ferent kinds of bones and muscles than you did earlier.
"WHY NOT learn sports that have 'tife-time' talue, sports
that a man can play with his family. I don't mean to say we
have to eliminate varsity sports. Tm just saying we have to see
to it that we balance our programs so that we include everyone
and that we add to the health of all the people m the schools
the students and the faculty as welL"
In pursuit of this type of programming. Ruskm has gladly
joined the staff of the National Jewish Welfare Board as a spe-
cial consultant where he can give of bis experienee and train-
ing, at the same time committing himself and hia students to
a Jewish existence.
Raskin propounds, "The central challenge to Jewish leader-
ship in America is to forge uiali i itandhic. Imowledge, convic-
tions and living, patterns which will provide the inner strength
for creative Jewish living, in a democratic and pluralistic so-
ciety. ,
IF THIS challenge will not be realized, the Jewish people
as a group may deteriorate. There are clear signs for this ten-
dency such as the disinterest of many Jews hi Jewish life and
religion, the alienation of intellectual Jews, the growth of inter-
marriage, the tow birth rate, the near stoppage of Jewish im-
migration and the strengthening of universal patterns of be-
