local campaign report to Jeru-

tional total raised by that date.
Stanley Brenner. general
chiirman of Federation's CJA-
ISF, has urged a massive effort
by workers to go substantially
over th SI million mark by
March 31.
He noted that over $800,000
was reported at the initial re
nort meeting on March 8 and
that $1 million at the end of
March will already have sur-
passed last year's result and set
the pace for reaching the 1976
local goal of $1.5 million by
June 1, when the national cam-
paign ends.
report has gi\ impetus to campaign volunteers.
Leading the parade of division
chairmen with ton reports was
Cvnnle (Mrs. Robert E.) List,
chairman of the Women's Divi-
sion, who announced that 19^5's
record of $223,000 was exceed-
ed and the division was well on
the way to meeting the 1976
quota of $350,000.
Significant reports indicating
increases of 50 and 30 percent,
respectively, were submitted by
the Special Gifts unit headed
by H. Irwin Levy and the Ad-
vance Gifts division under Dr.
Stanley Stark.
Other divisions, though just
getting under way, are all run-

Meir's Return Means No Bed
Of Roses for Rabin Coalition
Many political observers and a
large section of the new media
are expressing serious doubts
over whether former Premier
Golda Meir's inclusion in the
Labor Party's new leadership
forum can rescue the flounder-
ing party from the ideological
storms and financial ills that
threaten to rend its asunder.
Some sources are suggesting
that Mrs. Meir's return to an
active role in Labor Party po-
litics for the first time since she
retired from the Premiership in
1974 poses a distinct threat to
Premier Yitzhak Rabin's shaky
power base. These sources con-
tend that Rabin, though nominal
head of the party, has never
succeeded in getting a grip on
its leadership.
THE FORMER Premier, who
is now 77, agreed during a priv-
ate meeting with Rabin and
other ministers and Labor Party
leaders at her Tel Aviv home
last week to participate in the
which includes representatives
of the three old factions that
comprise Labor Mapai, Ach-
dut Avoda and Rafi will hope-
fully serve as a binding force,
resolve intra-party disputes, set
policy and restore confidence
in Israel's governing party.
Mrs. Meir is still immensely
popular with many Israelis, and,
having been in retirment for
two years, represents a "new
face." But some Laborites have
expressed astonishment that the
leadership forum was establish-
ed with the conspicuous ab-
sence of former Foreign Minis-
ter Abba Eban and former De-
fense Minister Moshe Dayan.
Others say, however, that with
Meir "back in action" the party
can hope for new life. "The
party needs a leader, there is
no doubt about that, and it will
not be hand for Golda to fit into
this role," one source observed.
many is whether this will be at
the expense of Rabin and whe-
ther it presages the party's shift
away from the "doveish" ten-
dencies of the Rabin govern-
ment toward the hard line irt
foreign policy that Mrs. Meir
personified during her tenure
in office some say intracta-
The newspaper Haaretz quot-
ed unnamed "top Labor Party
leaders" as saying that Meir's
comeback "is a hard blow to the
Prime Minister."
Daniel Bloch, political cor-
respondent of the Histadrut
newspaper Davar, wondered
whether there was no possibility
for the Labor Party to revive
itself without summoning one
of its oldest hands out of re-
tirement. "It is something like
calling back an old nanny to
educate the children who never

Dr. Sidney Selig, director of

fcn asked, "Should my child go
j a part-time or a full-day pre-
bhool program?"
["It depends on the child, and
L his readiness for learning

"That is why the Jewish Com-
munity Day School offers both
dons: a full-day program or

activities? Willing to try
jew relationships? Is he mo-
(vated? Is he ready for the be-
ning of an experiential pro-
-am with fun in learning? Is
ready to learn to learn?

A Nazi at the Helm s
Rotary International is a worldwide service organi-
zation. The question is service to what?
This is of particular significance now that it has
been revealed that a former Nazi is the only contender
for the organization's presidency.
Unless another candidate steps forward by Apr. 16,
Wolfgang Wick, an Austrian industrialist, will become
Rotary International's president.
The fact is that Wick withdrew his nomination
following worldwide protests. That was "decent" of him.
In reality, he was "testing the waters" and concluded
there would be no way in the world by which he could
win in a bona fide election.
But the fact also is that no other name has as yet
been proposed for the post, and so not only is Wick
back in the running; as sole nominee, he would be the
If Rotary International allows this to happen, then
new precedents will be established in terms of the re-
spectability of the Nazi era and its reconstitution. Fi-
nally, the world will be on record as declaring that
former Nazi affiliation is no longer a liability a griev-
ous past one must overcome.
By failing to offer Rotarians an alternate choice to
Wick, the organization would be contributing its pres-
tigious name and resources to this perversion of history.
That must not be allowed to happen.
Friends in Latin America
Israel is making an important effort to improve
relations with its traditional friends in Latin America.
The most important of these efforts was the official visit
by Foreign Minister Yigal Alton to Mexico.
Alton said his host. Mexican Foreign Minister Al-
fonso Garcia Robles, took great pains to stress that Is-
rael and Mexico had cleared up the "misunderstanding"
between them caused by Mexico's vote for the anti-Zion-
ist resolution at the United Nations. They both pointed
out that the relationship between the two countries was
based on friendship and understanding.
There were, of course, differences. Israel is unhap-
py over Mexico's permission to the Palestine Liberation
Organization to set up an office in Mexico City, but the
two foreign ministers said that even in the areas where
there was disagreement there was now understanding
of each other's views.
The Arabs and the Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion have been making inroads in Latin America. It is
good to see that Israel is not allowing its traditional
friends to be lost by default but is determined to see
that it will still have support in that region.
Purim and C-130's
Purim came early this week and passed with less
notice, it seems, than ever before. Perhaps our rabbis
let it slip their minds in the spate of their more paro-
chial congregational interests.
But the lesson is still with us still worthy of note
even days after the holiday, and throughout the year.
The Hamans determined to bring Israel and all Jews
down have not disappeared. The Hamans are forever
with us.
We do not equate the Ford administration with
Haman, but the President's reiterated determination on
the occasion of Purim to sell C-130 transport planes to
Egypt is the determination of our nation's leader to
deal with Haman.
President Sadat's "bombshell" announcement San-
day that he is breaking his 15-year-long friendship
treaty with Moscow was clearly no bombshell for Mr.
Ford, whose decision to sell the C-130's is by now weeks
Speaking of Haman, the Soviets are no new tillers
in that garden either. And so, here is the administra-
tion dealing with two Hamans and, on the occasion of
Purim, proud of it.
Issue is Quality of U.S. Life

ple for an honest and open ad-

Therefore, I think it's im-

have been no attacks on Israeli

ever, Moslem army deserters
have occupied several strong-
pointa on heights overlooking
Metullah creating at least a
potential menace.
Israel's concern centers on
whether the Moslem deserters,
Lebanon's government, will try
to turn that country into a con-
frontation st?te against Israel
and what will be the role of
Syria. So far. the Syrians have
made no overt moves. But they

Those Daring Not To Be Silent
Boost Soviet Dissidents' Morale!
In 1967, on his ninth trip to
the Soviet Union, Rabbi Harry
Bronstein was arrested in Kiev
by the KGB and jailed. His nose
was broken during a heating, and
had he not suffered a massive
heart attack, he would be serv-
ing a 25-year prison sentence.
Instead, he was expelled from
the country and declared per-
sona non grata.
Rabbi Bronstein's crime, he
savs. was that he had allegedly
"organized Jews to demand
freedom to leave the country,"
and had brought in "illegal lit-
erature and encouraged illegal
groups to support the actions of
dissidents in Russia." He had
been reported to the authorities
by a Russian Jewish informer
fearful, perhaps, for his own
Rabbi Bronstein, a winter
resident of Miami, denies the
allegations made when he was
arrested, but he does acknowl-
edge that he was providing aid
and comfort to Jews in the
form of mezzuzahs and tallesin
and tefillin he brought in and
distributed and that he was
obtaining information for use
here. But he wasn't organizing
or encouraging illegality of any
kind because, he savs. he
doesn't regard it as illegal for a
Jew to want information on
Judaism or texts in Hebrew.
Nor. he adds, does he think
it illegal for others to provide
that information.
Rabbi Bronstein's arrest did
serve an important purpose: an

organization he had founded in
IMkt, Al Tidom ("Dare Not be
Silent"), became nationally
known and no longer had to
function as an underground
movement. The group, which
began with 200 supporters, now
has 17,000.
Al Tidom was founded by
Rabbi Bronstein to provide help
for Russian Jews who had lost
their jobs as a result of apply-
ing for exit permits to go to
Israel. Packages are sent to in-
dividuals there by individuals
in this country containing items
of clothing that can be resold
for as much as five times
their declared value in the
Soviet Union. With funds ob-
tained from these resales, a
Russian Jew can hooe to save
the 900 rubles C$1,400) needed
to purchase an exit visa.
THE SOVIET government per-
mits these packages to be de-
livered because, Rabbi Bron-
stein says, the duty collected on
each package mailed in is an
excellent source of revenue for
the government. Indeed, he says,
if a package is for any reason
undeliverable, Soviet postal au-
thorities contact the sender
here to see if he wants it de-
livered to someone else in Rus-
Rabbi Bronstein explains that
an important part of Al Tidom's
program is to send "emissaries"
to the Soviet Union carrying
literature about Israel and trans-
literation alphabets (Cyrillic-
Hebrew), so that Jews can learn
to read Hebrew, as well as
microfilms of books on Judaism,
novels by American authors,
and other "educational >mate-
. rials."
He points out that the cur-
rent generation of young Rus-
sian Jews knows very little
about Judaism, having been im-
mersed from infancy in the
tenets and practices of "social-
ism" a philosophy that per-
mits no religion to flourish and
whose thesis is "religion is the
opiate of the masses."
The emissaries are tourists
who know about Al Tidom and
offer their services: yeshiva
and university students and
other casual travelers. When
asked why the Soviet govern-
ment permits them to come in,
Rabbi Bronstein replies "Mon-
ey." Tourists, students, travel-
ers bring money into Russia
and, at least in theory, bring
out very little of value.
I But Rabbi Bronstein observes,
with a glinting eye, they bring
out much of value: manuscripts,
works of art (like those of Ga-
briel Glickman), letters to peo-
ple in the West and those
lists of names of Jews who will
receive parcels of goods trans-
mutabl into funds.
THE EMISSARIES are able to!
carry the "contraband" into andi
out of Russia, for while their
luggage is carefully and meticul-
ously searched, their persons
aren't. And if, through an in-
former or carelessness or a
fluke, they are caught, they are
merely expelled. And since theyj
carry the lists of activists'
names on their persons, those!
peorls on the lists are "safe." i
Al Tidom's Phase I was to,
demonstrate on behalf of Soviet
Jews, to encourage them to be-
come activists. But there has;
been a change among young
Jews in Russia "they have
become fearless," Rabbi Bron-'
stein says and now they re-;
gard openness as necessary in
their fight to obtain permission.;
to emigrate, to obtain personal
and religious freedom. The new
generation demonstrates for it-
self, is openly activist.
AND SO Al Tidom is now in
Phase II: hence the lists of
names, the parcels sent, the
educational materials given to
anvone who requests them.
Of particular interest in this
season are the Passover par-
cels containing matzoh dif-
ficult to obtain, though avail-
able, in Russia that are sent
in. Rabbi Bronstein tells of a
Jewish taxi driver who was so
pleased to have had a small
piece of matzoh not for reli-
gious reasons, but because to
him it was symbolic: "A bite of
Rabbi Bronstein. now unwel-
come in the Soviet Union, di-
rects Al Tidom's activities in
New- York, collecting names,
arranging for oarcels to be sent,
and'0nr"oVi^inq* ruft!ance for
those who offer their assistance
on their travels.
Rabbi Bronstein firmly be-
lieves that his work must con-
tmue for onlv through en-
couragement and material sup-
p-vt will "ianv Russian Jews be
able to obtain the wherewithal
to emigrate. And those who
'Mare not to be silent," who pro-
vide material and moral sup-
port, are th" greatest motiva-
tion to the dissidents.

Your Rabbi Soeaks
The Judeo-Christwn Heritage
Temple Israel
West Palm Beach
Interfaith programs in our
community have begun to spring
to life. The American Jewish
Committee and Grace Episcopal
Church have been holding a
most meaningful dialogue pro-
gram for the nast few months.
A "Sisterhood in Action" lec-
ture was given at Bethesda-by-
the-Sea recently, with repre-
sentatives from the three major
faiths in America.
All of us who have worked
on these programs (and I have
been deeply involved in both of
them) are most gratified that
finally, in our community, Jews
and Christians can openly and
honestly communicate with one
another. And there is the es-
sence of meaningful Jewish-
Christian dialogue: openness
and honesty.
LET US begin, then, by be-
ing open and honest with our-
selves, and educating ourselves,
as we embark upon programs
of interfaith understanding. Our
first step might be the realiza-
tion that in the nast there was
little positive that could be
culled from that mystifying
catch-all phrase, "Judeo-Chris-
tian Heritage."
It is the ill-informed Jew who"
does not recognize the great
distinctions between Judaism
and Christianity, whether either
be in its traditional or liberal
form. And similarly, the Chris*
tian must realire that Marts
a fundamentally different ap-
proach to religion and life when
compared and contrasted to
In dialogue, and when we
participate in dialogue pro-
grams, we must begin with that
premise: there are differences.
That these differences are sig-
nificant. And that we will not
get beyond "Go" unless and
until we recognize the distinc-
tions between our respective
faiths and heritages.
What, then, of dialogue? Can
a dialogue program be success-
ful if we assert our particular-
BM and individuality? In fact,
this recognition of distinctions
makes Jewish-Christian dialogue
all the more meaningful.
WE NOW, in asserting our
own points of view, have come
beyond the first step of telling
each other how much we love
4jnc another. (Nothing is more
destructive to dialogue pro-
grams that unabashed displays
of phony brotherly lovel)
We cast aside the meaningless
"all people are the same" jar-
gonlsm. (For, if ail people were
the same, we would have no
need for dialogue in the first
place.) And we begin to make
inroads into an intelligent un-
derstanding of what each in-
dividual holds sacred and feels
to be important and significant
in his or her own life.
Once there is this degree of
understanding, we approach the
next logical step, and that is,
hopefully, respect for one an-
other's position. With under-
standing, and then respect, we
can thus begin to build the
basis for a less hostile universe
in which we all hope to survive
and thrive.
SO PLEASE, do not kid your-
self, for if you engage in inter-
faith dialogue; you rrrust realize
that the differences between
Judaism and Christianity are
what brought you together to-
speak and converse and try to
understand hi the first placet
But by trying to understand
these differences, we can" then*
build the bridges of friendship
which will aid us in this Ubt
quarter of the 20th* canturY to
make- truly meaningful the
phrtse "the Judeo-Christian
Moses anoints Aaron and' his sons as priests.
"And he poured of the anointing oil Upon' Aa-
ron's head, and anointed-Mm, to sanctify him1' (Lev.

Early American Psalmody:
Origins and Aspects
By Cantor Nicholas Fenakel
Temple Beth David
The earliest American set-
tlers, although diverse in reli-
gious and cultural backgrounds,
shared a common high regard
for the Old Testament, in par-
ticular the Book of Psalms. This
reverence for the Bible and de-
sire to perpetuate its study
through musical expression led
to the creation of an unusual
religious-musical experience we
call psalmody. With the first
popular translations of the Bi-
ble, musical devotions were
placed within the commoa
man's province.
The publication of the first
native psalter in 1640 in the
Massachusetts Bay Colony set
a pattern for concision and va>
riety. Based largely upon the
Ravenscroft Psalter (London**.
lr>21), only six different meters
were shown, capable of suiting

What is "D've-
Answer: The term means
'"cleaving." It represents an at-
tachment to the Alminhty in
every walk of life. This was
especially to be obtained
through prayer recited with
fervor and gladness.
Any act of life performed with
this attachment to the Almighty
is said to bring "spiritual plea-
sure" to the individual. This
means that any physical act can
become a spiritual act h* one
senses the attachment he should
have to the Almighty.
This was a fulfillment of a
Biblical requirement to the Jew
"in all thy ways know Him."
The communication with Cod.
that can be achieved through
piayer is not turned off when
formal prayer ends. It eatends
and spreads to every phase of
the life of the Jew so that his?
communication with the' Al-
mighty continues every moment |
of the day The Lord becomes
a partner in every enterprise of.
the Jew.
Thus a Jew is filled with op-
cause he can never fall if the
timism, which leads to joy be-
Almlghty ie always at his side.

carefully reported as "allega-

ranging from defamation of

diminishment of his income-
earning capacities. (Never
mind, he continues on Ms
S42.500 annual salary until he
is vindicated. Does he give any
of it back if he is not?)
But in politics in the mat-
ter of the publics business, the
public trust, the public right to
snow there is no equivalent
protection against illicit lan-
guage, flamboyance and down-
right mendacity that can hurt
us as much as unfounded alle-
gations would hurt Callaway or
anyone else.
THE THING that worries me
is that no one seems to think
tnis important enough to be a
political issue.
For myself, I am tired of
presidential candidate talk
about balanced budgets, taxes,
the military, unemployment, in-
flation, social security, the So-
viet Union, the Middle East.
It is not that these are not
important issues. Of course,
they are. But they generate a
helpless hurricane of lies. They
are a convenient stage upon
which candidates can posture,
blow huge winds, say gran-
diloquent things to which they
can never be held, and in gen-
eral masquerade as Machiavel-
FINALLY, it is time that at
least one candidate, somewhere,
stand up and say that the ma-
jor presidential issue in 1976
is the quality of American life.

When Egyptian President Sa-
dat visited Washington last Oc-
tober, he is known to have ask-
ed for a variety of weapons sys-
tems, including anti-aircraft
misiles, anti-tank missiles and
F-5E Jet fighters.
Gen. (Res.) Mordechai Hod,
former commander of the Israel
Air Force, said during the prior

The U.S. State Denartment sub-
aequentlv denied that there was
anv Intwtti'm to sell the F-79
engines to Egypt.
HERETOFORE, Israel's arm-
ed forces have benefitted from
the general superiority of U.S.
w?aoons over their Soviet coun-
terparts in the Arab arsenals.
But this advantage would be
lost, military sources pointed
out. if the Egyptians are armed
with A"iericn e*"iioment. al-
lowing them in effect to enjoy
t*ie best of both Western and
Soviet technology.
Israel would be forced to in-
vest enormous sums snd effort
to create counter-weapons to
the Western equipment in Arab
hands. Some sources here ques-
tioned whether the latest de-
velopments represented a turn-
ing point in U.S.-Israeli rela-
tions or. at best, a serious ero-
sion in those relations.
Circles here said Israel is
limited in the way it can re-
soond. It can lobbv against the
arms sales to Egypt and Saudi
Arabia in both houses of the
U.S. Congress: it can appeal to
American public opinion over
the head of the administration
and it can. especially, call on
A*Hirlean Jewrv for support ia
this election year.
HOWEVER, political observ-
ers Tiere feel that President
Ford, having won the New
Hampshire primary over his
rival, former Gov. Ronald Rea-
gan of California, and the Massa-
chusetts primary, is now con-
fident of the Republican Presi-
dential nomination.
He has therefore embarked
on a strategy of arming Egvpt
to widen the gao between Cairo
and Moscow.
Reports from Washington said
the Ford Administration has al-
readv informed kev members of
Congress that it seeks to encour-
age Egypt on the path of mod-

Flan to Eliminate Israel
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion has disclosed its plan to
eliminate the State of Israel by
overwhelming it demographical-
ly. According to Zehdi Labib
Terzi. the PLO observer at the
UN, all that is required is the
return of Palestinian refugees
to the homes and property they
left in 1948 and 1949, a right
which Terzi elaims is inherent
in UN resolutions.
"That return would alter the
demographic balance in Israel
to such an extent that it would
destroy its (Israel's) Zionist ex-
clusionist character," Terzi said.
Once back in their homes, the
Palestinians would "exercise
their inalienable right to self-
determination, national inde-
pendence and sovereignty," he
Terzi unveiled the PLO's
strategy in an appearance be-
fore the Committee on the Exer-
cise of the Inalienable Rights of
the Palestinian People which
was established by the General
Assembly last fall over the ob-
jections of the U.S. and Israel
Israel said it does not recog-
nize the committee and will not
be bound by any recommenda-
tions it may produce. Of the 20
member nations, only two have
diplomatic relations with Israel.

JERUSALEM Rumania will
cease using the Eilat-Ashkelon
oil pipeline to transport crude
oil from the Persian Gulf n
route to Rumania. Pipeline of-
ficials Mar. 11 confirmed a re-

They said Rumania was a large
customer of the pipeline, but
withdrawal of its Business
would not be a knockout blow
The officials conceded that
the pipeline was not currently
making a profit but said it was
due to the general recesion in
the oil transport industry which
was hitting at the tanker trade
Some consternation was ex-
pressed when the original re-
port came from Egypt citing
Arab boycott officials there who
said Rumania's move was taken
"to consolidate relations with

No Problem Is Insurmountable
For Tliis Cautorial Student
It's umisual enough to find a
young woman officiating at a
temple service as a cantor, but
that the constant companion,
night and day. for this nice Jew-
ish girl is named Murphy seems
a bit much until one learns
that Murphy is a golden re-
triever seeing-eye dog.
Mindy Fliegelman, born and
raised in Miami, is blind. She
is affiliated with Rabbi Ralph
Kingsley's Temple Sinai. Al-
though she still has a year and
a half before being invested as
a cantor at the School of Sacred
Music of'Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion in
New York, she holds a pulpit in
suburban West Hemnstead's
Nassau Community Temple.
Mindy has overcome two
handu:a*s that might have stop-
ped lesser mortals: she has sur-
mounted the "insurmountable
problem," as she calls it, of
entering what has been, until
now, an exclusively male pro-
fession, and she lives a full life
despite her perpetual darkness.
WHEN SHE was born prema-
turely, she says, "there was too
much .oxygen in the incubator
which burned my retinas," pro-
ducing complete blindness.
"I was always a religious
child," she said in a recent in-
terview. 'T enjoyed religious
school and all that. I've been
singing for pleasure since I was
three. ,1 made my first profes-
sional .appearance at nine, when
I had a quartet and we sang pop
and folksongs at the Fontaine-
But her dream was tp become
a cantor, "Some little kids want
to grow up to be nurses or
teaehers. I felt I had some lead-
ership qualities and that I could
be.an_asset toaome temple. But
it alvvav*.seemed just a dream."
.That's because she got little
encouraa&ment at home. "My
mother 'explained' the impos-
sibility of the whole thing be-
cause it was. a mans profession:
girls iust were not cantors or
rabbis. It was one of those child-
hood dreams to abandon and
then eo on to realitv "
SO MINDY rut the dream
aside, but not her desire to
study music, and went on to
Florida State University at
Tallahassee. -After rthree years
there, she decidad to go en to
New York. She was 21 an adult,
and with a mind of her own.
She had wanted to go to the
School of Sacred Music in the
first place, "bnt my parents
wanted me to stay in Miami,
where they could sort of watch
out for me."
On reaching New York, she
got a job with the Braille In-
stitute of America as a teacher
and librarian, and while there
she was asked to substitute for
a girl who was to perform at
Central Synagogue but had a
sore throat. Mindy agreed and
on two days' notice she sang
in the temple. And that event
encouraged her to revive her
old dream.
SHE CALLED Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of Reli-
gion, but without much hope.
"I never thought they would
even think about accepting a
woman. But I was accepted the
day I auditioned," she recalls.
When she began her five-year
cantorial program, there were
two other women in the school.
Now, almost three years later,
she is one of 13 women and 33
men taking courses in Jewish
history, liturgy, rabbinic litera-
ture and music. "She is doing
very well indeed." said one of
her instructors.
"Of course there are prob-
lems" for a blind student, Mindy
said, "but most of them are
easily surmountable." She tapes
the lectures and later tran-
scribes them on her Braille
typewriter a double work-
load. People often read to her,
bnt she memorines all her mu-
ONCE SHE burned her fin-
gers making taffv and couldn't
use-them to read Braille. "Then
I realized how much I had me-

its president, C. Lorraine Hof-

Police Interested in Israel's
Hashish 'Dip Tester9 Machine
JERUSALEM (JTA) A numbtr of overseas
poltoa farces have expressed interest in a hashish-de-
tection device developed by two scientists at the Ben-
Gurion University of the Negev in.Beerah.eba. The de-
vice is already in use with the Israel police force.
THE DEVICE comprises a plastic "dip tester" with
a small chemically-impregnated sponge at its end. The
sensitive chemical compound reacts immediately with
any traces of hashish in body liquids such as saliva,
urine or blood. The sponge tarns purple.
According to a university official, the detector is
especially useful in situations requiring immediate con-
firmation of suspected use of hashish. The two Inventors
are Prof. Avinoam Livneh and Avital Schorr;

^The'city Council of New York has been ponder-
the idea of renaming the area as a retort to
shameful UN resolution about Zionism.


Wrote Dr. Haberman: "It so happens that the
quotation inscribed on the UN wall, 'Nation shall
not lift up sword- against nation neither shall they
learn war any more,' is immediately preceded, in
its original Biblical setting, by a reference to Zion,
the spiritual cradle of humanity's ideal of univer-
sal justice and peace: 'For out of Zion shall go forth
the law and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.'
"THE ANCIENT prophet envisaged a peace
founded not on political horse trading and the so-
called balance of power, but rather upon reverence
for law rooted in religious faith. This is the heart
of religious Zionism such as the Bible proclaimed.
It is entirely fitting that an area adjacent to the
UN' be named Zion Square since the ideal of in-
ternational peace and justice passed into our civil-
ization by way of Zion.
"The New York City Council should be com-
mended for an action which reminds all of us. and
hopefully also the delegates to the UN, that the
highest purpose of the UN, the attainment of in-
ternational peace, is part of the spiritual legacy
of Zion."

Setback For
The Jobless
A THE $6.2 billion, measuse to relieve unemployment heeds
hack to the planning beeed, thanato to the Senate's failure
to override another of President Ford's vetoes, the crisis over
joblessness, especially in the cities and among minority group
peosjle, atagesi up as perhaps the most important of all elec-
tion year issues.
in his State of the Union message, Mr. Ford voiced the
hope that. even, though unemployment was apt to continue at
a rate of 7.7 percent for a while, he saw better times ahead.
IN RHPLV, gen. Edmund S. Muskie was highly critical of
what he eaUed the Adrniaistration's "penny-wise and pound-
fools*" economic plans and deplored continuance of a pro-
gram at which our factories am producing only 75 percent
as many geedr as they actually could, leaving us saddled with
fewer jobs and) higher prices.
In the same season, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy opined that
"the recession may be over fox the major oil companies and
for the big corporations, but it is not over for unemployed
factory workers."
TO* PACTS- won't go away, election or no election. Every
time unemployment moves up one percentage point, that's
another million people (and especially young people) sidelined
with no jobs. One recent' study shows that, at one time or
another during 1974, more than 18 million Americans were

is 22 percent.
IN LARGE segments of the Jewish community, where
memories of joblessness in the era of heavy immigration to
the VhftBtr States and despair about lack of work in the
middle 1930*s remain green, there is a special concern about
sntanpsbyment and about the rapid acceleration of world In-

An Open Letter To The Jewish Community
Of Palm Beach County
Dear "You Know Who You Are,"
I returned from the UJA Young Leadership "Koach"
mission in November infected. I was infected with the
invincible spirit of the people of Israel. I was infected
with a swelling sense of Jewish pride because of the
sterling accomplishments of my people in a barren
land, in a hostile world.
I was infected with a sense of great need seeing
what yet is to be done.
I m infected with a feeling of "oneness" with my
Israeli brothers and my fellow Koach participants.
I was infected with great excitement knowing that
we, young American Jews, had reached and touched
the hearts of the Israeli people.
I was infected with great sorrow when I learned
that six Israeli teens had perished in a terrorist bomb
blast in Zion Square, Jerusalem, only 36 hours after we
had marched past that very spot. All six had been
wearing the blue "Koach" buttons that we had distrib-
uted by the thousands throughout Jerusalem the pre-
vious day.
I was infected with a sense of accomplishment
knowing that we, 1,000 strong, 500 couples, had raised
among ourselves $2.7 million on this eventful mission,
as a commitment to meet the needs that we had wit-
I was also infected because of my visit to Poland
as an extension of Koach. I was infected with sorrow
and horror having witnessed the mere remnant of what
was once one of the greatest Jewish societies the world
has known. Poland once had 3.5 million Jews. Now
only 4,000 remain, almost all over the age of 60.
Warsaw, once the jewel of this culture, had
350,000 Jewish inhabitants. Now the count of Jews is
98. Poland has seen but one "bris" in the past 28 years.
I have stood in the Auschwitz and Birkenau death
camps and witnessed the Nazi machinery that produc-
ed these horrible statistics. I left there infected with
the commitment that this nightmare would never be
repeated, and yet today the world theater clamors
anti-Zionism, the modern password for anti-Judaism.
I returned home filled with infection that I had
hoped to make endemic in the community. There are
some who were affected. There are some who have
listened. There are some who have worked. There are
some who have pledged needed dollars to the CJA-IEF
campaign from their hearts and whom I know share
my convictions, and the joy of a heartfelt gift.
There have been those who would try to destroy
this infection, and you know who you are. There are
those who refuse to meet with solicitors or to be con-
tacted at all.
There are those who give a token gift to rid them-
selves of their Jewish obligation for another year.
There are people who would answer the phone and
refuse to allow the solicitor to speak to their spouse
in fear that he or she would pledge dollars that would
prevent them from exercising some selfish indulgence.
Those dollars could buy a Jew freedom, or provide
a classroom for a youngster in Israel, or meet a Jewish
social need here at home. Those of you who would try
to destroy my infection with these tactics will not
succeed, for there are just enough of those around who
care to keep this infection active, and they know who
they are.
Remember, we raised $2.7 million among only 1,000
young excited people. Can 40.000 Jews In Palm Beach
County become excited enough to raise $1.5 million,
or more?
What have you done to help?
Do you know who you are?
