When leaders of the 1976 Combined Jewish Appeal-

from Jerusalem on the need and status of the national

a local campaign report and the setting of a national

In announcing that the
local campaign is well over
the $1 million mark, general
campaign chairman Stanley
Brenner noted that a new
peacetime record for the an-
nual campaign in the Palm
Beaches has been reached
and urged there be no let-
up in the effort to attain the

The local record of nearly

from Jerusalem to 150
American communities, in-
cluding Palm Beach, heard
special messages from Frank
Uutenberg, United Jewish Appeal general chairman;
lak Rabin, Israel's Prime Minister, and several other
lerican and Israeli leaders.
Lautenberg used the broadcast to accelerate comple-
of the 1976 campaign by establishing a national clos-
date of June 6, the anniversary of the Six-Day War. He
:d that this ten-week peried be an intensive buildup to
closing date, to create a sense of unity here and in

Pointing to Israel's agonizing experience on the heels

The Committee for Rescue
of Syrian Jewry announced
that it has filed a complaint
with the National News
Council over last Sunday
night's follow-up broadcast
on Syrian Jewry on the CBS-
TV "60 Minutes" program
conducted by Mike Wallace.
In a letter addressed to
the Council, Rabbi Joseph
Harari, executive director
of the Rescue Committee,
said "We deplore the new
CBS broadcast in which Mike
Wallace has once again fail-
ed to portray the true pic-
ture of the sufferings of the
4,500 Jews forced to remain
HARARI contended that Wal-
lace's foBow-ap showed "more
concern" with defending the
original broadcast on Syrian
Jewry 13 months ago which was
condemned by many Jewish or-
ganirations as a distortion of
Harari wrote. "We are dis-
mayed by Mr. Wallace's ada-
mant refusal to retract his ir-
responsible statement that 'Jews
are suspect in Syria as a pos-
sible fifth column' even though
President (Hafaz) Assad admits
that Syrian Jews are loyal
He charged that Wallace "has
even gone further this time by
stating that 'most governments,
even our own, would consider
these people as Dotentially dan-
gerous to the national security' "
and by observing that 'Jaws
are Jews and Israel's guns are

A Passover Message
From Our President
By BETTE GILBERT
Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach Coty
On the eve of Passover, April
lit. in Jewish households or
gathering place* in Palm Beach
County, we will again recite the
ancient story ef Israel's redemp-
tion from hnadsjBfi in Egypt.
How privileged we are to sit
around our festive table, secure
in our freedom, to recall those
dramatic and miraculous events.
It should be remembered how-
ever, that this was after all just
one chapter in the history of
our people. We cannot forget
that each generation of Jews
has contributed to bur history.
Some with sacrifice, bloodshed
and superhuman struggle, but
always with pride and heoe and
gratitude for God's blessings.
This generation, then, yoHrs
and mine, must make Its own
contribution toward shaping the
destiny of Jews and the survival
of Judaism. As we partake of
the matzos, the maror and cha-
roses and the other symbols of
Passover, let us remember to-
gether the indestructible link
that exists between us and the
Jews in other lands.
Passover is truly a festival of
freedom and has been an in-
spiration to our people. Yet our
freedom is really imcomplete
while any Jew remains enslaved
or oppressed or whose very
existence is threatened.
So, on this Passover 1976, I
sincerely wish that your Seder
will be a joyous occasion spent
with your loved ones and Rood
friends and that you share with
me the hope "that the story of
Passover will strengthen our
concerns and broaden our en-
Together we can do our share
to make this chapter in Jewish
history a meaningful message
of being "one" with all Jews.
Jewish dreams are our dreams.
Jewish survival is our survival.

What Did Scranton Mean?
The politics we are playing in the Middle East are
bound to catch our hands like a steel trap.
One day, Ambassador William Scranton argued at
the United Nations that Israeli settlements on the West
Bank are "illegal." The very next, he vetoed an Arab-
sponsored resolution designed to put Israel on the spit
for the "oppression" of Arab opposition to Israeli occu-
Scranton insisted that his veto was a technicality
that the U.S. was not saying "no" to the principle of
Arab opposition, only that the U.S. wai opposed 10 the
form of expression the principle took as coui.ter-pro-
ductive to ultimate peace aims in the Middle East.
Begging everybody's pardon, but we simply don't
know what Ambassador Scranton is talking about.
It is sad but true that we had a brief respite with
a real man at the helm Ambassador Moynihan. Now,
alas, we're back to the days of John Scali. et al. Appar-
ently, everybody except Uncle Sam has a right to say
what he means the Soviets, the Africans, the Arabs
no matter hew justified or unjustified.
But Uncle Sam must trade in weasel words, and
although, at least for the moment we are delighted with
'the Scranton veto because it has avoided a crunch I e-
tween Washington and Jerusalem, the fact remains that,
once again, nobody can translate into anything that is
understandable just what it is Scranton had in mind
A postscript to these reflections is the statement
by Prime Minister Rabin over the weekend that had the
U.S. failed to veto the Arab-sponsored resolution, there
would have bean, as we already mentioned here, a
crunch between Washington and Jerusalem.
We wonder what form that crunch would take.
The fact is that Israel is in no position these days
to issue writs of power not to Washington or anyone
Even were our State Department to go totally hay-
wire with respect to Israel, as indeed this is a possibility
we constantly dread, we are hard-put to foresee what
form of rejection of American coercion Israel might
take that would amount to a viable policy over the long
If such be the case, it would be well for more of
us to know about it, since thaj. would spare us a good
deal of the anxiety we otherwise experience.
Boycott Can be Fought
Ihe efforts by the three major Jewish Defense or-
ganizations to combat the Arab boycott against Israel
have shown results. The American Jewish Committee,
the American Jewish Congress and the Anti-Defamation
League have all sought to expose companies that are
participating in the boycott and to find means of com-
Dramatic aspects of the problem included the Amer-
ican Jewish Congress announcement that 22 major
American corporations have given it written assurances
that they will not submit to Arab boycott demands.
Also, the ADL's recent story that 200 companies
and 25 banks are helping the Arabs wage economic war
against Israel has brought replies from some of the
firms that they are not complying with the boycott or
that they had been participating but will no longer do so.
Rabbi Arthur Hertzberp, president of the AJCon-
gress, said the assurances from the 22 companies demon-
strated that "It is simply not true that major American
companies with worldwide interests cannot stand up to
the Arab boycott."

NEW YORK (JTA) Ap-
proximately half of the esti-
mated 24,000 civil service em-
ployes dismissed to date in the

Jews. Louis Weiser, president
of the Council of Jewish Organ-
izations in Civil Service, told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
Weiser said the majority of
the approximately 12,000 Jewish
civil service employes who have
been laid off were employed by
the Board of Education, which
is not controlled by the city
administration. He said the dis-
missed Jewish education em-
ployes included teachers, ad-
ministrative employes and. par-
ticularly, guidance counselors.
WEISER also told the JTA
that about 5,000 Jewish substit-
ute teachers no longer have
jobs. He said substitutes are not
included among the Board of
Education's permament civil
He said a recent figure of
32.168 published as the total
number of civil service em-
ployes dismissed since the city
began its forced dismissal ef-
fort included layoffs by attri-
tion and that his data on Jew-
ish employe dismissals referred
to direct dismissals.
WEISER SAID that anticipated
additional cuts in the city's pay-
roll undoubtedly will include
more Jews being laid off. He
said "we monitor these layoffs
very carefully" to assure that
dismissals are in "strictest ad-
herence to seniority and civil
service regulations," adding that
there had been no evidence of
any violations in Jewish em-
olove layoffs to date.
He said the Council would
imi to court immediately if that
happened on any future dis-
missals of Jewish civil service
pmrloyes. lie added that the

Passover: Festival of Freedom
By Rabbi Emanuel Eisenberg
Temple Beth Sholom
The holiday of Passover or-
ders us to celebrate freedom
through recital and narration of
the story of redemption, and
not to erect statues of liberty.
It seems that God enjoys the
praise of freedom through the
sound and melody of the human
voice more than the- imposing
symbols of stone and steel, as
if to say that freedom cannot
be comprehended and under-
stood if expressed through
monuments of fixed and stag-
nate forms, because if freedom
is meant to release man from
bondage and slavery, it is not
onlv from the chains that are
forged of metal and material
objects but also to liberate
him from chains of an intangible
Man's greatest contribution to
providence's design and plan of
creation is the abilitv to grow
and to unfold other crea-
tures of nature seem to be con-
ditioned by a law of adjustment,
adapting themselves to the en-
vironment. Therefore, they can
grow only by yielding to the
geographic and environmental
Man, on the other hand, can
shape and adjust the environ-
ment to suit his well-being. It
is, therefore, man's greatest gift
that he can grow and unfold in
a deeper sense than nature's
growth and fertility.
MAN CANNOT permit him-
self to rest in "pastoral calm"
he cannot indulge in that
stillness and apparent passivity
of nature he must constantly
be active and dynamic. Every
achievement must be a stimul-
ant for further advancements.
He must fight the temptation
and the craving for carving a
stationary and statuary symbol
of harmony and quietness. It is
the second commandment of
the Ten Commandments which
expresses the regulation against
forming a fixed image and a
solid symbol of man's apprecia-
tion of nature and his own con-
tributions to it.
It would be ironic were we
to fail to emphasize on this holi-
day of freedom the need and
the urgency of man's nature
not only to be released from the
chains of iron and steel, but
also to be relieved from the
ropes formed from a gossamer
material that can be just as
binding as metal ones.
It is on this holiday of free-
9 NISAN 6:18
RABBI EMANUEL EISENBERG
dom that we would be reminded
of man's privilege and preroga-
tive not to remain complacent
and content with his past ex-
periences, but rather to renew
anu revive the talents and
energy for further advancement
IT IS ONLY when man fails
to exercise this gift of renewal
and renaissance that he loses
his chance for further realiza-
tions and asoirations. He should
be mindful not to say "Enough"
when we are capable of reach-
ing for more.
The song "Dayenu." which
literally means "enough," should
be interpreted not as meaning
we are content to reach suffi-
ciency at early stages, but ra-
ther as a song of appreciation
for every rung in the ladder
that helped us to ascend to the
heights we achieved.
How much travail and agony
we would have saved ourselves
how many sacrifices we could
have spared had we listened
to the call of Zionism when it
was proclaimed. It surely shows
that we can accept second-hand
things better than first-hand.
The same manifestation one
can observe now, when Jews
who themselves do not observe
Passover laws so loudly protest
the cruelty of other countries
that prevent our brethren from
practicing the same.
How pathetic it looks to give
and distribute the fourth matzo
Into hands that will themselves
reach for chomeytz leaven.
They too seem to claim rights at
second hand, not in the original.
They like to be on record as a
carbon copy not as the au-
thentic one. They will write on
the second page of the paper,
not only the first one.
ALAS, don't they realize how
much more offensive it is that
while they protest against the
lands that prevent the Jew from
observing Passover they ob-
serve it where it is free and
possible? Don't they realize that
the missing link is really the
strongest link, because it breaks
the whole chain?
SYNOPSIS OF THE WEEKLY TORAH PORTION
Dr. Banfuiil Shapero
' And the priest shall look, and, behold, if the
plague of leprosy be healed in the leper" (Lev. 13.3).
METZORA This portion describes the laws for
the purification of the leper after he is healed. 'Then
shall the priest command to take for him that is to be
cleansed two living clean birds, and cedar-wood, and
scarlet, and hyssop. And the priest shall command to
kill one of the birds in an earthen vessel over running
water. As for the living bird, he shall take it, and the
cedar-wood, and the scarlet, and the hyssop, and shall
dip them and the living bird in the blood of the bird
that was killed over the running water. And he shall
sprinkle upon him that is to be cleansed from the lep-
rosy seven times, and shall pronounce him clean, and
shall dwell outside his tent seven days. And it shall be
that is to be cleansed shall wash his clothes, and shave
off all his hair, and bathe himself in water, and he shall
be clean; and after that he may come into the camp, but

his head and his beard and his eyebrows and he
shall bathe his flesh in water, ""Sifr* iitoili JrfsalamV

By RABBI SAMUEL J. FOX
Question: Why do pious
Jews sway in prayer?
Answer: Several reasons are
advanced for this custom. The
mystics base it upon a state-
ment in the Zohar, where the
Biblical quotation "The soul of
man is the candle of the Lord"
is mentioned as a basis for this
Others explain this as mean-
ing that a flame Is alive only as
long as it flickers. The swaying
Jew in prayer indicates that his
soul is alive and thriving. Once
a holy word of prayer is uttered
his spirit has been kindled and
flickers like a flame.
Another opinion connects this
custom with a quotation from
the Psalms, where it is men-
tioned "All my bones shall pro-
claim ." This is taken as an
indication that prayer is much
more than mere lip service. A
man's whole body and soul are
involved in his communication
with the Almighty. The sway-
ing, then, involves the i
of the person in prayer

IE TRl'Tll is that congress*,

acted out the role of CIA "de-

were suggesting that Congress

that Executive Information pass-

the nature of a "privilege" and
not the n-cessary means by

onto the committee itself, ques-

and deliberately ignoring the

Activists in Demo As Gromyko Visits
By MACMCE SKMlfctSOtf
LONDON (JTA) A non-

Jewry activists has been going
on here since the arrival of
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko. Members of the Wom-

have been pursuing Gromyko
aboard a green double-decker
bus plastered with slogans and
names and pictures of Jewish
prisoners in the USSR. Inside
the bus, hired from the London

Another motorized demon-
stration is being carried out by
members of the Betar move-
ment aboard their "Herut-Mo-

the recent Soviet Jewry confer-
ence in Brussels.

To meet the local goal, Brenner proposed that "the
enthusiasm of our achievements to date must now be con-

1976 campaign lies in the pledges remaining to be signed.
Increased commitments are vital. Only with a strong, de-
termined local Jewish community action will we be able to
guarantee a strong world Jewish community."
Final campaign plans include a special Passover ap-

WISH WOMEN are writing about their needs, their, busdens
J an(j t^eir dreams. Many are young, bursting with expressions
of their newly f^u^an^, accented,, liberation.
In "The Jewish Woman in America" (Dial. 191$, 18.95),
(charlotte Baum, Paula Human and Sonya Michel preeent a
I long-awaited probe into the history, sociology and psyche of
the Jewish woman of all ages in America. Thf three authors
who come from varying Jewish background* decided to in-
vestigate the phenomenon of the Jewish woman venerated until
the 1930s and currently reviled as either a oteseotypic "Jewish-
mother" or a "Jewish American Princess."
AFTER A brief look at women in Jewish tradition, the
I authors compare and contrast the women from both German
and Eastern European backgrounds in America. They conclude
the last third of their book with a view of the Jewish woman
| in literature.
This section is actually the catalyst of their project. Baum
land Michel resented Philip Roth's portrayal of Sophie Portnoy
fin "Portnoy's Complaint." They feel that the image of the Jew-
ish mother has been maligned and distorted over the last 40
BAUM, HYMAN and Michel have positive, strong identities
I as Jews. They are trying to preserve their meaningful inherit-
lance. In their own words:
"We do not intend this book as an attack on Judaism or
I Jewish men. Nor is it an apologetic defense of Jewish women.
We have tried to destroy some of the myth* about Jewish
women that have severely affected tfcejr self-images, and.to
replace the myths with thf Uutk about an admirable heritage
[that conventional histories have ignored. We are hereby re-
I claiming our past."
THE AUTHOR of "Twfce Item: Memoirs of an Adopted
IDaughter" 'McGraw-Hill. 117S, $1.96) recently w*ote a feature
article in the New York Times Magazine regarding the diffi-
culties an adortee faces. in discovering his or her natural
parents. Hetty Jean Lifton fetls very strfOgJy that it is .eveyy
I adoptee's right to know about his or ho/ natural parents
In this context, she chronicles the saga of her own search
I to discover from whence she came. She traces her first home
back to the Hebrew Home for Infanta, where her natural mother
left her; and she describes the Jewish honteWe she had nit|
| her adoptive parents.
THE AUTHOR would like to sec the breakdown of legal
barriers to the knowledge of one's adoption. Yet she confides
that the emotional obstacles w*r* often more difficult to deal
with than were the legal ones. But for M/S- Lofton, "the pain of
i not knowing where on? comes from outweighs all risks."

Church and Swastika:
A Union. Reexamined
^ THIRD of^a century after their entry into
Vatican archives, the,. Romag Catholic
Cfcireh has made public 6gg pages of infor-
'ngfian. insight,, cpngnent., and review dealing
with the sensitive aBd tangled relationship of
the highest papal authorities with Hitlerism,
especially as conneefcd with the fate of mil-
lions of martyred and uprooted Jews.
There can be no end of interest in this 20th
century web of cruelty, intrisjje, negotiation,
silence, heroism, studied stiaoce, and genocide.
And because opinions differ sharply while
loyalties churn up charges of neglect and coun-
tercharges of exaggeration, we certainly are
now deeply in the debt of Rome for making
public the documents calculated to throw new
light on the dramatic drama.
A SEGMENT of the public was first made
aware of strong negative feelings about the
role played by Pope Pius XII in the Church's
dealings with the Nazis when Rolf Hochhuth
produced his heavy-handed pUy> "The Deputy,"
in the early 1960s.
Speaking stridently through his valiant stage
priest, Father Riccardo Fontana, the playwright
portrayed that same Pope who helped engineer
the Vatican nact with Hitler July 2*-,- 1933
(wJrile stiJJ papal secretary) as "God's deputy"
who did not do all he might have done to halt
the juggernaut of genocide.
"WHY DOES the Pope not breathe a word
of the faot that where bis church towers rise,
there- too Hitler's ahtmneys smoke?" Unghi
huth cried out in his searing dramatic sketch.
The furore ever "The Deputy" had net,yet
subside^, when th^Vpcbfllarly work of Gueeter
Lewy, "The QghpHc CJigrch and Nazj,, Ger-
many," touched off new speculation angVcear
cern. Given access to German diocesan .docu-
ments and many German Catholic publications*.
Proa'. Lapwy spenf ^va vogrs on the prgaerat
tlon and writing of his book.
UN44KE HOCHHUTH, Lggry did not turn
the, haaioegt light of his examination upon
Pope Pius; rather he documented the slow but
inevitable surrender of Gerjnen parishioners,
church leaders, and priests to the wave Fntier
insisted was to be the Reich's future. These
.vtre not evil, purposely-bigoted churchgoers
and church functionaries; but they had neither
tha, inclination nor the courage, by and large,
to swim against the Hitler tide; nor were they
heard frequently to weep when the cross was
twisted into swastika.
Lewy gave appronriate credit in his book
to the small band of church leaders who did
fight back and to all crushed by the Hitler
machine. (Studies indicate at least 3,000 Cath-
olic priests and many Protestant ministers
perished in concent ration camps.)
BUT IN the end, he wrote forthrightly and
in strong command of much documentation;
"One is inclined to conclude that the Pope
and hi* advisors influenced by a long condi-
tion of moderate anti-Semitism so widely ac-
cepted in Vatican circles did not view the
plight of tha Jews with a real sense of urgency
and moral outrage."
It would be well for these inclined to dis-
miss the judgments of Prof. Lewy as conclu-
sions not thoroughly sifted through and well
digested to turn to the Catholic Encyclopedia's
reporting on the Nazis as seen through author-
itative Catholic eyes.

ment in Hitler in the yeare feUewing the adop-
