Gen. Gonen
From Army
Shmuel Gonen, whom the
Agranat Committee held re-
sponsible for Israel's mili-
tary defeat at the outset of
the Yom Kippur War, re-
signed from the army last
He refused to accept a
field command offered him
by the Defense Minister on
grounds that it would imply
that he accepted the Agra-
nat panel's conclusion that
he was unfit for a regional
command or to head a de-
partment at General Head-
In his letter of resigna-
tion, Gonen reiterated his
charge that the Agranat
Committee made him a
scapegoat for errors on the
Egyptian front.
A HIGHLY regarded armored
division commander during the
1967 Six-Day War, Gonen was
commander of the southern re-
gion encompassing Sinai when
the Egyptians, in their surprise
attack of October, 1973, crossed
the Suez Canal and overran the
Barlev Line.
The Agranat Committee, ap-
pointed by then Premier Golda
Meir to Investigate the conduct
of the Tom Kippur War and the
events leading up to it, pointed
the finger at Goaen as the sen-
ior officer most responsible for
Israel's setbacks.
Isaacson, chairman, has an-
nounced that Dr. Bernard Reich,
who was originally scheduled
for that date, will be out of the
country at that time as a con-
sultant in the Middle East for
the U.S. State Department.
"We are pleased to add David
Schoenbrun to our roster of
Forum personalities," Dr. Isaac-
son said, "and look forward to a
behind trie-headlines briefing as
unique as the man."
Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum will
climax the five-part cultural
program on March 14 with a
talk on "Jewish-Christian Rela-
tions in a Global Society." Tick-
ets will be available at the door,
beginning at 7:15 p.m. on Forum
evenings, at the Temple, 2815

Eban's Return to Top
Gov't. Post Imminent
JERUSALEM (JTA; For the first time since Yit-
zhak Rabin set up his Cabinet 18 months ago, leaving Abba
Eban conspicuously out of it, the two men met for a long
friendly chat alone in Tel Aviv Friday. The Premier's aides
said they had reviewed the political situation in advance of
the Security Council debate
However, they did not
deny rumors that their con-
versation presaged an immi-
nent return of the former
Foreign Minister to the gov-
QUALIFIED sources in-
dicated that Eban's return was
now to be expected. His pre-
cise position is still a matter
of speculation. Some sources
say Rabin will try to persuade
Foreign Minister Yigal Allon
to cede the Deputy Premier-
ship to Eban.
Eban meanwhile has left for
the U.S. on a United Jewish
Appeal speaking mission, and
he may meet with Rabin there
when the Premier makes an
official visit to the U.S. later
this month.
Eban's return to the Cabinet
has been sought for some time
by the ex-Mapai wfng of the
Labor Party which sees htm as
a dove who might help swing
Rabin away from Defense Min-
ister Shimon Peres' harder tine.
Eban is also considered a
faithful Mapai man and such
men are at a premium among
the top office-holders in the
Rabin Cabinet. Finance Minis-
ter Yehoshua Rabinowitz has
reportedly led the campaign
for Eban's return to office.

peace by changing the nature of the Geneva conference."
Allon made that statement to a meeting of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organiza-
tions prior to returning to Israel after a series of talks with
U.S. officials in Washington and New York.

HE WAS referring primarily
to the Security Councils Mid-
dle East debate. Israel did not
participate bcoause of the invi-
tation extended to the PLO.
Allon said he is leaving the
U.S. "more confident" than
when he arrived here, that "or.
the basic issues, the U.S. and
Israel see eye-to-eye."
He "aid. nevertheless, that
there is still fear "that our ad-
versaries will be subtle and
introduce 'corrections' to Reso-
lutions 242 and 33* which will
use. so to speak, semantic
fotmolaa used on several occa-
sions by the U.S."
HE ADDED, however, that
it was more or less clear to
all concerned that any risk to
the process of peace that has
been achieved through U.S.
policy and is recognized inter-
nationally as a U.S. achieve-
ment any risk by minor
changes or the injections of
new aspects would affect
the national interests of the
U.S. worldwide.
Allan, who met with Secre-
tary of State Henry A. Kissin-
ger in Washington and ad-
dressed the Overseas Press
Club, also said that "any tech-
nical developments that will
take place during the (Security
Council) debate will be dis-
cussed mutually between Jeru-
salem, Washington and New
He explained in general out-
line to the Presidents Confer-
ence the substance of his dis-
cussions in Washington and
New York.
ALLON SAID that Israel
viewed the invitation to the
PLO to attend the Security
Council debate as a matter of
principle because it was a sub-
stantive issue grafted onto a
purely administrative matter.
He said that the Security
Council's Nov. 30 meeting was
convened to deal with the ad-
ministrative process of renew-
ing the mandate of the United
Nations Disengagement Ob-
server Farce (UNDQB) on the
Golan Heights but under So-
viet "dictation" and Syrian
'blackmail" the substantive is-
sue of inviting the PLO was

United Farm Workers
Condemn UN Resolution
The West Palm Beach Local, United Farm Workers,
FLC/O, lectured the following statement in their January
Metin on the vote taken by the General Assembly of the
\nited Nations condemning Israel.
"The following statement was adopted by the National
xecutive Board of the United Farm Workers of America,
Ipl-CIO, in response to the United Nations resolution con-
(emning Zionism as racism.
"The recent UN resolution condemning Zionism as
1 racism is an affront to the Jewish people who have been
[history's primary victims of racism.
"As an embattled minority who have suffered the
I humiliation and degradation of racial and economic
discrimination in this country, we know first hand the
ravages brought about by intolerance and prejudice.
This resolution will encourage the latent anti-Semitism
that has been a blot on world history and continues to
I stain the conscience of humankind.
"A national home for the Jewish people is a natural
| and legitimate aspiration of ont of history's most op-
pressed minorities. We are proud to stand with our
! Jewish brothers and sisters in America in affirming Is-
I reel's right to live in peace with her neighbors. As de-
| mocratic trade unionists and human beings we can do
do less."

A New View of Chutzpah
The high point of United Nations chutzpah occur-
red shortly after the Middle East debate began on Mon-
day of last week.
Farouk Khaddoumi, foreign policy adviser to the
Palestine Liberation Organization and Yasir Arafat, be-
rated Israel with a viciousness of tone perhaps unparal-
leled in previous UN history.
The tragedy of Palestine, he told the Security Coun-
cil, began with the "iniquitous Half our Declaration."
Furthermore, declared Khaddoumi, the United Nations
had no right "to partition our country" in the first place,
meaning the world organization's establishment of Israel
in 1947.
Referring to Jews as "usurpers," Khaddoumi charg-
ed them with "a sinister scheme against our people."
After diverting himself of such blatantly venomous
distortions of truth and history, Khaddoumi thereupon
criticized Israel for failing to attend the UN "debate."
THAT is chutzpah.
Self-Destructive Trip
French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing's re-
cent trip to Cairo was a disaster.
The French are going to give Egypt all the things
Egypt does not now have in sufficient quantity
fighter planes, guns, pressure on Europe to see Egypt
in an ever more favorable light as d'Estaing does what
he can to dampen even further the once favorable light
that shone on Israel.
This comes at a particularly bad time bad when
one thinks of the snag in relations between Egypt and
the Soviet Union, particularly Moscow's refusal to make
it easier for Egypt to repay all the money Moscow bank-
rolled and Egypt blew in its attack on Israel in 1973.
One can easily argue that America is doing the
same for the Israelis that America is arming the Is-
raelis and supporting the Israelis in a world increasingly
determined to isolate them.
But the bald fact is that Israel is not attempting
to exterminate anyone whatever the phony Third
World-Communist Woe says. The Arabs are.
Furthermore, any rift between the Soviet Union
and any Arab state is worthwhile for western interests.
For a western nation to fill the breach is tantamount to
knitting the rift and thus to diminishing the benefit of
the rift to the West.
"That is what France's President has done.
In this sense, we see d'Estaing's visit to Moscow ui
the same meddlesome way that we saw Geo. DeGaulJe^s'
first meddlesome attacks on the American dollar and
American international prestige.
In the end, the French are gouging out a hole in
the hull of the boat they themselves are sailing.
Time to Act-Not Talk
Faye Schenk, president of the American Zionist
Federation, has announced the creation of a Commission
on Zionist Ideology made up of 31 Zionist scholars and
leaders The commission will perform a needed service
by dealing with such questions as the contemporary
character of Zionism, the differences betwen Zionist and
pro-Israeli activity, and whether Zionist philosophy
needs updating and revision.
It is important that the efforts produced by the
commission not be kept to itself that they reach not
only Zionist and Jewish organizations, but also the gen-
eral public. Despite all that has happened in recent
years, proper information on Zionism still does not
reach a large public.
Most people, including many Jews, really do not
know what Zionism is. They are thus easy targets for
Arab propaganda.

AST WEEK, I concluded with
the promise to take a clos-
er look in this column at Lau-
rens van der Post's recent book,
"Jung and the Story of Our
Time," with specific reference
to the sections dealing with
Psychiatrist Jung's alleged anti-

do, at least partially, with,
guess what?, anti Semitism:
that ubiquitous pain in the
backside of man which afflicts,
not his conscience (the seat of
his conscience is hopefully
elsewhere), but his brutal ani-
mal nature.
The subject of Wills' column
is Israel, and he has written
it with what he would have us
believe is profound regret.
For one thing, he argues,
every time he writes about
Jews or Israel, "the sicky hate
mail" arrives to congratulate
him "for at last seeing through
the Jewish plot to rule the
I voiced a mild criticism of
something Leonard Bernstein
did and some people wrote
me fervent letters of embar-
rass-in'.; praise for attacking
'that Jew'."
Okay, he's made his point.
We are now on notice that Wills
is not an anti-Semite partic-
ularly when he observes with
some sympathy, "One of the
sadder side effects of this dis-
ease (anti-Semitism) is the Is-
raelis' own earned touchiness
about any criticism at all. They
have always seen how each
tiniest criticism was put to use
by the anti-Semites."
Wills thereupon proceeds to
criticize Israel, and in no "tin-
iest" way either, if not confi-
dent of immunity from charges
of anti-Semitism, then at least
certain that he has set the in-
tellectual ground rules for crit
icizing Israel without having t
anticipate unreasonable (unin-
tellectual) counterattack.

The Rule Of The Majority
Secretary. Falsa Beach Coeely
Rabbinical Council
The Torah recognizes the rule
Of the majority and has never
sanctioned autocracy- When
Moses attempted to dispense
justice all by himself, he was
cautioned significantly "Lo

"the method you adopted is not
good." Where opinions differed
in the interpretation of laws,
the decision of the majority was
Nevertheless, in the Sedrab
of this week, Mishpatim, we
find a most meaningful sentence
in the text "Lo tihyeh acha-
ray rabim l'rawot" "Thou
shah net follow a multitude to
do evil." This raises the ques-
tion of whether majorities are
invariably in the right, whether
majorities are always safe

consensus necessarily an indi-
cation of truth?
Mosaic law discountenances
a blind, slavish following of the
many. When we are thoroughly
convinced by using our own
powers of logic and reasoning
that the majority is wrong, we
must abstain from adherence to
its cause.
Vox populi, vox Dei, the voice
of the people is like the voice
of God, is merely an assump-
tion, not a self-evident truth. A
popular truth of today may to-
morrow be proven a falsehood.
An idea advocated today by a
minority, ridiculed and de-
spised, may ultimately become
the cherished ideal of great
ideas had to fight single-handed
against overwhelming major-
ities. What struggles they had
to endure! What battles and suf-
fering they had to undergo not
to be swamped by the masses.
What a pathetic, but what a
grand figure the Prophet Elijah
presented when he exclaimed,
"I, even I only, remain a proph-
et of the Lord" The whole land
was tar* him: royalty,
priest*, prophets and the peo-
ple all worshipped Baal Elijah
was the solitary exception. He,
the smallest minority, would not
follow the many to do evil.
The fact that the rule of the
majority prevails does not en-
sure the triumph of righteous-
ness. The actions of the United
Nations, in the Assembly and
in the Security Council, during
the past year proves this point.
Ambassador Sean referred to
the dictatorial actions of the 130
nations against Israel and the
United States as "The tyranny
of the majority."
Like a prophet of old. Am-
bassador Moynihan railed
against the shameful abuses of
majority power which violated
the most basic principles of
morality and ethics.
WE ARE the most adaptable
people. We copy our neighbors;
we allow ourselves to take over
their virtues and even many of
their vices- Whenever we have
known where and when to stop,
we have survived.
When we have realized that
the course of the vast majority
was in opposition to our Torah.
our traditions, our culture, then
we have refused to follow.
This is the message of our
text. May we never lose our na-
tional and religious conscious-
ness! By all means, let us aver
be in the forefront of the march
for progress and decency, but
never to do evil

After decades of using the
Union Prayer Book, last revised
in 1940, the Central Conference
of American Rabbis has issued
for use by all congrega-
tions who desire it a new pray-
erbook called "Shaarei TefiHah"
"Gates of Prayer."
This new ptayerbook. to he
used by Temple Israel, is a
radical departure from the
Union Prayerbook.
In addition to being almost
twice as large, "Shaarei Tefil-
lah" piasawts many mare op-
tions is its prayer service*. For

redacting a different motif er

didonal service, to a hvwaa-
isticaHy oriented service, to a
choice of two cttiaavea'faatfr
services for new holidays and
festivals, such a* Yam HaAtz
meat (Israels Independence
Day) and Yaw Hafnoa (A Holo-
caust Bletoarial Day) are in-
cluded, as welT as an extensive
supplement of English and He-
brew hymns and songs.
The new prayerbook reflects
the divergency within the Re-
form movement, allowing per-
sons to discover that which is
authentically Jewish and mean-
ingful for themselves. Its trans-
literations ant ell in the
Sephardic mode and there is,
in general terms, a greater em-
phasis on Hebrew. Its possible

Moses instructs the Israelite* in the divine Law.
"And he took the book of the covenant, and read
in the hearing of the people; and they said: 'All
that the Lord hath spoken will we do, and obey'"
(Exod. 24.7).
MISHPATIM The laws that Moses submitted to
the children of Israel after they had heard the Ten
Commandments dealt with the following -subjects:
The Hebrew servant; murder, filial aggression and
blasphemy; kidnapping, criminal assault; maiming of a
servant; the butting bull; accidents and damages; theft;
property damage; watchmen; seductien; proselytes, the
orphaned and the widowed; lending and borrowing; the
sanctification of God and man; relations with the enemy;
the Sabbatical year; the Sabbath; the three pilgrim fes-
tivals; idolatry.
This portion concludes with the renewal of the
covenant with God The children of Israel accepted the
covenant with the words: "All that the Lord hath spoken
will we do, and obey" (Exodus 24.7). Moses then as-
cended Mount Sinai to receive the tablets of the Law.

History of Temple Beth El
Early 1920s To 1976
Prior to 1923 there existed
in the Palm Beach area the Jew-
ish Community Center, w'ji-h
served the community's religi-
ous, social and charitable re-
quirements for several years.
With an influx of large num-
bers of residents in early 1922,
the membership split into twa
groups, resulting in the forma-
tion of Temple Israel (Reform)
and what later became Tempi;
Beth El (Conservative).
Eirly leaders of the Conser-
vative movement were the
Jacob Feins, Carl Schrebnicks,
Ben Roses. Char'es Dicksons,
Maurice Dickson, and others.
Sam Goldman was elected their
first president, and the grouo
held services in a small room in
\tih Women's Club on North
Flagler Drive, with High Holi-
day services in the Club House
Around 1925. with increasing
membership. Temple Beth El
was organized and chartered.
Joseph Lesser was elected presi-
dent and Jacob Fein retained
as lay religious leader. A sanc-
tuary seating 300 was erected
and dedicated on a site west of
Dixie Highway on 7th St. Syd
Feder was eneged as the tem-
ple's first rabbi.
With the "Boom Bust" in
Florida came a loss of mem-
bership, and the temple was
unable to meet its financial ob-
ligations on the building mort-
gage, resulting in foreclosure.

During this period, Samuel
Schutzer acted as president, fi-
nancial secretary, treasurer, and
lay religious leader; he also con-
ducted a religious school.
Under Rabbi Manuel Green-
stein and in a new temple build-
ing on Fern St., the congrega-
tion recovered and progressed:
p. religious school addition was
built, also serving as a social
hall, and was named the Joseph
Scher Memoral Hall.
In 1950 a building adjoining
the temple on the corner of
Fern St. and Georgia Ave. was
Talmud Torah.
The need for larger accom- j
modations was felt with in-1
creased membership, and a plot!
of land on North Flagler Drive
was purchased. The building |

??i- 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
Citizens Building, West Palm Beach, Fla. 33401.
Dear Jenny,
A family living on my street
seems to be having parent-vhild
problems. Even if the windows
are closed, it is impossible not
to hear the shooting of the
adults and load crying of the
two children. I myself have seen
bruis-s on the children's bodies
and facet.
The other day the mother
came into mv house crying be-
cause, as she told me, she had
started to spank the little boy
and could not make herself stop.
If he hadn't stnieeled out of
her grasp, she told me, she was
afraid she might hare severely
inrared him.
She needs heln and she ad-
mits it. hut does not know where
to turn. Have you any sugges-
Mary S.
Dear Mary.
Your neiehbor does indeed
have a problem and. unfortun-
ately, she is not unique. Many
parents who really love their
children are unable to recognise
that thev are taking out their
frestrottons and resentments on
their children under the guise
of discipline.
This problem has become rec-
ognt7od. and a n\v program
called PIN Parents In Need,
has been formed to help par-
ents like your neighbor.
The first meeting will be an
all-day seminar in March at
Palm Beach Junior College, and
people interested in training to
become paraprofessional coun-
selors as well as parents or any-
one interested in help will be
invited to attend. Watch for
pubneitv and dates and time in
the local papers.
In the meantime, if you feel
the children are in danser, yea
may call the Children's^Protec-
tive Service at 659-1411 or 833-
7455. If for any reason you can-
not reach these numbers, yon
may call this toll free-nurber:
Dear Jennv.
Nine months ago I was forced
to pot my mother in a nursing
home. I have been so pleased
wkh the cane she has'been get-
ting, and the home is almost like
a luxury hotel.
Unfortunately, my mother
doesn't think so. She complains
constantly about the food, the
people, her bed. etc.
I visit her at least every
other dav and this is not easy
for me. I have an invalid hut-
band at home who requires a
great deal of care and attention.
He cannot be left alone. When
I visit mv mother, mv kind
neighbor stavs with him.
Jennv. I lust can't core for
both mv husband and mother in
mv home, hat I have such en ill
feelines when I return from the
nnrtmo hom. I am torn be-
tween mv |nv* and dntv to both
Of them and ennsot decide who
comes first. I must come to a
decision soon or I will break
Roberta A.
Dear Roberta.
I have had autte a few letters
like yours and do not feel cap-
able of helping vou to deal with
such a serious situation. I have
turned to Carolyn Jacobson, the
Jewish Family and Children's
Services Director of Case Work
Services, and her answer is as
"So -often when people write
that they want to make the right
decision, they mean they want
to make everything completely
right. This is never possible in
a situation such as the one de-
scribed here.
"Levhig -these dose tens car-
ries with it its own burdens of
guilt and anxiety. Feelings like
this are never easy to endure.
Perhaps we should liken a bad
situation to a loaf of moldy
bread each slice has a spot
of mold and no matter where
we choose to make the first cut,
we see evidence of decay: So it
Is with aging and ittness. There
is no perfect solution.
"What, then, can we do to
satisfy our feeiingB of obligation
and love? To begin with, we
must assess the situation objec-
tively and with a clear head: A
plan must be devised which
brings the maximum benefits
and the minimum defects. No
one can be all things to all peo-
pta and a person catering to an
invalid mother and an invalid
nd soon comes to know
how little prepared she is to
satisfy all the needs of both.
"I firmly believe that counsel-
ing can help this writer to rec-
ognize her own limitations. She
can Ik- helped to determine how
much she owes to her mother
and husband and how much
she owes to herself.
"In the last analysis, her first
obligation is to her own well-
being, because without her
strength and stability, two peo-
ple who have come to depend
on her will be immeasurably
"She has probably not looked
upon herself as the-one worthy
of first consideration ana'hat
looked upon such a concept as
evidence of selfishness on her
"A counselor can" help her
to release her guilt and to re-
build her feelings of love and
duty into a usable format that
win benefit her husband, her
mother, and herself."

Jewish Cultural 'Giants' Ignorant of jewishness

the JTA editor discussed with
me coverage of the Jewish Wel-
fare Board's first night's session
of its Conference on Jewish Cul-
tural Arts, we also discussed
how best to handle the session
since its panelists were not
normally associated with Jew-
ish affairs.
We tried for a separate inter-
view but it didn't work. How-
ever, it being a subject of in-
tense interest and concern to
the Jewish community, I was
sent by the editor to the first
night's panel and found the au-
ditorium of the Ninety-Second
Street "Y" pretty well filled.
DORE SCHARY. who chaired
the evening and helped organize
the conference, does have a rec-
ord of identification with Jew-
ish causes. However, the others,
Prof. Richard Gilman, professor
of Drama at Yale; Alfred Kazin,
author and professor of English
at Hunter; Arthur Miller, Pulit-
zer Prize-winning playwright
and author of "Death of a Sales-
man," and Barbara Tuchman.
historian and also Pulitzer Prize-
winner, all do not.
However, what we anticipated
was that the first session would
come a cropper.
To start with, Gilman read a
paper which seemed like a
series of one-liners and in-jokes,
with references to Hadassah
and Commentary. He said Jew-
ish cultural experience "is
there." Like Matterhorn, I sup-
pose, and what has to be
HE REFERRED to the ac-
tivity of Jews in many of the
visual arts, identified them as
"pop" art He also said the Jew-
ish artist and intellectual is
identified with a "bourgeois"
structure but at the same time
injected a "supernatural" ele-
ment, which gave his point of
view a profundity his approach
unfortunately, and with other-
wise best intentions, did not
Failed to Signify Depth
Kazin, who said he was "proud
of religious right," seemed to
identify his Jewishness with his
immigrant parents who came
from Russia. It does not signify
depth in the conference subject
to know that the Puritan fore-
fathers came armed with an
awareness of Hebrew, or that
the candle-sticks in the Touro
Synagogue were made in Paul
Revere's shop.
KAZIN, who probably receiv-
ed an extra-curricular educa-
tion in the alcoves of the lunch-
room in City College in the
thirties (as did I), should per-
haps know that quoting Mark
Twain about the Jews, or Emer-
son or Thoreau about some re-
lated condition, leaves a more
identified Jew with the feeling
that external auotes do not a
Jew make. It's like women say-
ing men cannot write of their
feelings and problems, or Blacks
saying the same of whites.
Nowhere in his paper did
Kazin refer to having been Bar
Mttzvah. While that rite of pas-
sage Is not the sum total of
Jewishness, it is a good base
and acquaints a young Jew with
some of its heritage.
Kazin spoke of the Jewish
artist's capacity to create
dreams, as in Hollywood, and it
was difficult to tell whether he
thought this a creative force.
When he ended his statement
with an expression that there
was a moral confusion among
Jews, he seemed to be project- I.
ing his own condition.
MILLER made several per-
sonal references about hav-
ing lived in the same neighbor-
hood of the "Y" (Harlem?)
and as a young boy thought,
since everybody in the neigh-
borhood was Jewish, that the
same applied elsewhere. He in-
voked his own theatrical dis-
cipline as to what was Jewish,
but that, too, was anecdotal.
However, touched by the Ger-
man experience, about which he
wrote in "Incident at Vichy," he
asked Heinrich Boll, German
Nobel Laureate in Literature,
how the absence of Jews in Ger-
many affects its creativity. Boll
replied that what was missing
was the "pursuit of the final
This, of course, is a literary
concent and could be applied to
almost any people, but Miller
precoursed it with his own feel-
ing that, in Jewish culture, there
is "dan*er" around us and that
"the last days are here." Some-
how, too, he equated this with
a search for power. What power,
Jewish power?
MRS. TUCHMAN was a whols
lot gentier with the subiect and
as an historian could find no
Jewish culture in the United
States before 1880.
Although she made reference
to Israel and the Holocaust, she
confessed to an uncertainty
about being able to define Jew-
ish culture and said it had a
definite relation to the general
culture in which it variously or
individually resided.
Schary said written questions
would be entertained after the
intermission and that was when
the cropper came. The question
which upset the gentle pursuit
of Jewish culture was: How can
you organize a Conference on
Jewish Culture with people who
know so little about it?
SCHARY defined the question
as rude but had sufficient pres-
ence of mind to advise the asker
that this was the first session
and that the remainder of the
conference included people
more closely identified with the
Jewish scene. He said there was
a balance and it was yet to come.
Mrs. Tuchman asked to an-
swer the question, but it didn't
quite come off. She realized it
and asked the questioner to
come forward and explain what
she/he meant by Jewish culture.
But the asker remained anonym-
WHILE my editor and I had
not anticipated this precisely,
we did feel that this distinguish-
ed group might be somewhat
distant from the subject. And
we sought a clue, a key on how
to resolve this, with a view to
having such distinguished think-
ers and creators involved in
Jewish affairs.
We came up with the word,
"Yiddishkeit." While there was
no mention made of Babel, Bu-
ber, Isaac Bashevis Singer or
Achad Haam, there was talk of
Philip Roth from Miller and
Saul Bellow from Kazin.
A young friend of mine, who
is not Jewish but inclines with
interest in its culture, insisted
on attending. Later, I asked,
"Do you know Miller's 'Death
of a Salesman'?" The reply was,
"Know K? I lived it"
WE IN our hearts knew that
the protagonist of the play,
Willy Loman, was a landsman
and everybody else's father or
uncle, because there is in Miller
a kind of "Yiddishkeit" which
found expression in that play,
a compassion for the inhuman
condition of man and sympathy
for the wife who says "Atten-
tion Must Be Paid."
"Yiddishkeit" is in Miller as
accumulated phenomena, in the
same way Einstein (whom they
forgot to mention) could not
have created his equation with-
out Newton; Newton, his gravity
notion without Galileo; and
Galileo without Ptolemy. Jew-
ish culture is historical, it is
religious, it is writtenand like
a pyramid comes to rest in the

AND WHY must Israel have
a "unique moral claim among

argument for the Prophets, or
perhaps for Abba Eban in de-
bate. But surely there is no re-

fact that not a single PLO
leader has yet come forth will-

basis other than that she must
first commit national suicide.
And since when (since Mu-

will escalate his demands?
WHAT I fail to see in Wills
is quid pro quo either from
the Arabs or the anti-Semites,
themselves. Even if Israel were
to give up the territories, Wills
offers no vision of peace in

Israeli Forces
In New Pullback
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli forces withdrew
without incident from a desert salient in Sinai at the
northern end of the Gulf of Suez. The area, which
consists of sand dunes and contains no military instal-
lations, is the first that will be handed back to Egyp-
tian military forces under the Israeli-Egyptian interim
accord signed in September.
Egyptian military units are expected to enter the
evacuated zone 48 hours after the Israeli departure.
The Ras Sudar and Abu Rodeis oilfields and the coastal
strip linking them were handed over to Egyptian civil-
ian administration several weeks ago. The next Israeli ,
withdrawal under terms of the interim agreement will'
beionrried out in 13 days when Israeli forces pull but '

To demonstrate American Jewish solidarity
with Israel against the Arab-Soviet anti-Israel ma-

To bring to Israel a large number of Amer-

llaym Salomon Book
For Bicentennial Year
ITN PREPARATION for the Bicentennial, the
United States Postal Service has issued a
I series of stamps commemorating "Contributors
I to the Cause" of the American Revolution.
I These contributors who are representatives of
I minority groups in America include a Black, a
I woman and a Jew.
The Jew is Haym Salomon, "Financial
[Hero," and the citation on the reverse side of
the sump reads: "Businessman and broker
Haym Salomon was responsible for raising most
of the money needed to finance the American
Revolution and later to save the now.nation
I from collapse."
SHIRLEY MTl.C,RA.\rs "Haym Salomon:
j Liberty's Son" (Jewish Publication Society,
M.50) is ostessibly for luveaila reader* The
vocabularly and presentation, jhawairop, snahe
it equally entertaining and informative for
| iduhs. Having produced' five tstevvJon dramas,
1 Milgram can skillfully create daalagua to drama-
tize significant events in Satotnecra *Jfe. She
also introduces foreign words and interesting
I expressions of the time.
Moreover, Milgram does not .simply retell
events. She subtly underscores the important
values and ideals of the colonists, particularly
| the strong commitments mad* by Jew* in be-
haH of the Revolution.
THE VALUES and concepts presented here
can easily be compared by parent, teacher, or
young adult himself to the action and commit-
ments of Jews in America today.
For example, Milgram shows us how fund-
raising in 1780 was integral to the establish-
ment of the United States. A reader quickly
draws the comparison to the enthusiastic and
vital fund-raising performed in the United
States today on behalf of the existence of the
State of Israel.
Is not Salomon's dream for the infant
America the same, aa our deeam for the young
Israeli state: "Do we want this country with
its promise of freedom to be truly our coun-
try? W have longed tor such a place to hve
more than any other people. Let us pledge our
dollars immediately to help the Revoluooa
THE BOOK is well-designed. Attractive
drawings by Richard Fish are interspersed with
the text. Official documents and correspondence
from Salomon to other- patriets are set-off from
the next in colpnial-type, printing.
"Haym, Salomon," published in Philadelphia
in the Bicentennial year, is a fitting tribute to
this eminent American hero, and a valuable

Bar Mitzvah
lor Adults
^IXTY MEN and women members of a major Manhattan Re-
form synagogue are attending classes which will enable them
to have as adults the Bar Mitzvah and Baa Mitzvah rites they
did not have as children.
The program, unique for Congregation Rodeph Sholom and
probably unique in Reform history for the number of partioi-
pant*. was initiated by Rabbi Gunter Hirachberg, spiritual lead-
er of the. congregation. Rodeph Sholom also is unique for hav-
ing established what is believed to be the first day school under
Reform auspices.
BfrRALLY, the two-semester course had been planned op
the basis of one weekly, class, to be held Sunday mornings at
the synagogue. However, Rabbi Hiwchberg told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, the response***** so much greater than had
been expected that two classes ha* to be organized. The second
class meets on Wednesday evenings. Each session lasts tv*>
and a half hours.
Rabbi Hirschberg said the women outnumber the mea,
though he declined to .give specific figures and that the age
range was from the tote teens to the 50s. The oldest "student
is he said.
RABBI HIRSOHBERG was aahed hew unique the program
is in Reform Judaism. He said he knew of a similar program in
another .Befoan congregation but that it had only eight pa-
iieipaBts.-Hfreaid he did not know of any similar program m
any Refenm. congregation with a* many participants as the onp
at his synagogue.
Two aemester* are planned. Both have courses in Hebrew,
subdivided in*o one class for beginners participants ai the language. The first semester began last
October and will continue to February. The second semester
wiU w>fPoa*iFebruary to June.
IN ADDITION to imancaton-in Wobcew. the first semesteer
has a dass in Jewish history, taught-by Rabbi Paul Mrt,
the coiigregations assistant rabbi. The course in Jewish beliefs
and practices in the second semester wflltbe taught by Rabbi
Hirschberg. .
In-announcing the program m a memorandum aimed at
interested congregants, Rabbi Hirschberg acted that "early Re-
form Judaism originally abeatohed. Bar .Mitzvah because it felt
that all too often it had become an-end to the study of Judaism
rather than, a'beginning."
He, added, that "this valid restart was only one among mans;
which had no validity whatsoever, and so Bar and Baa Mits-
vah today are again an integral Part of Reform Jewish life."
Wftheat **o accompanying learning.-however," the rite* "ago
aria aseasamglass,'' he said.
INITIALLY, the plan called for Bar MJtzvah and Bas Mita-
vah rites in one ceremony during services Friday evening. May
14, with all course members participeting. The fact that sp
many more adults have enrolled m the program than waa anti-
cipated has caused Rabbi Hirschberg to drop that ptan and
ponder means by which each candidate canjbave an opportunuy
for an individual role in the rites.
Rabbi Hirschberg said he was considering setting aside tvap
yrtdayaighiaeitlUBsfui the iltea ^-May 14 and May 21Nat
that he was stiR working out the problems created by the un-
expectedly high enrollment.

In 1948 David Ben Cur Ion prophesied and warned, "The future of Israel...depends cm
world Jewry. And the future of world Jewry depends oo the survival of Israel."
Aa we begin the 1976 campaign on behalf of the people of Israel and our own Jewish
coeaiunlty, the words of Ben Gurlon are as prophetic and true as when voiced during
the early days of the founding of the State of Israel.
Today, the Jewish people are living in a world buffeted by change...with daily threats
to our existence.
Two years have passed since the sanctity of Yom Klppur was shattered...with its heavy
toll of heroic sacrifice and devastating effect on the economy and lives of the people
Of Israel. Israel is still not at peace. The interla agreement has only bought time.
Tou need only to read the daily newspapers to know the incredible treachery being mounted
against Israel and Jewry by the action of the United Nations led by a conspiratorial
group of Third World nations. The charge... "Zionism is racism"... is reminiscent of
another "big lie" which still vividly lingers in the memory of our generation.
Our role as Jews Is again on trial. This Is no time for complacency or timidity. How we
act... how we respond... can determine the future of Israel and the course of Jewish
