Campaign Near Close:
Countdown Begins
A 30-day concentrated drive beginning on May 7 and
ending on June 6 will climax the formal phase of the Jew-
ish Federation's 1976 Combined Jewish Appeal Israel
Emergency Fund in conjunction with the closing date of the
United Jewish Appeal's national effort in more than 250
communities throughout the United States.
The aim of the final effort is to bring in nearly $300,000
in pledges needed to reach the record 1976 goal of $1.5
million. (The 1975 total was $977,000.)
In a report and message to campaign leaders and
workers announcing plans for the 30-day period, general
campaign chairman Stanley Brenner urged concentration
on renewing over $200,000 in gifts of last year still unre-
ported. With the campaign now at the $1.2 million mark;
he expressed confidence that recovery of former gifts along
with increases and contributions from new donors can make
the goal a reality. <
Adding to the optimistic outlook for the campaign,
Brenner cited several recent reports from the Boca Raton;
Century Village and Hi-Rise units.
The Boca Raton area, combining a men's and women's
organized campaign led by H. Gordon Brown, Frank Titel-
man and Florence Melton, is already over $110,000 and
still going strong.
Century Village chairman Abe Bisgaier reports that
with the help of a first-time women's drive headed by Bea,
Heiz and Harriet Shapiro the CV complex has raised overt
$100,000, compared to $67,000 in 1975.
A breakthrough in organizing a number of area condos.
under the Hi-Rise chairmanship of Robert E. List and Mor-
timer Weiss is producing significant new funds. Responsi-i
ble for the excellent first-time results are Ralph Lieberman
at the Rapallo, Milton Bluestein at the Regency, George:
Golden at the Lands of the Presidents, Iz Cohen at the
Claridges, Bill Weinberg at the Reef and Harry Berger at
the Patrician.

anyone for the American-Israeli
dispute over the aid. Javits, who
was in Cairo earlier last week,
reportedly told Rabin that it
was his impression that Syria
and especially Egypt want a
peaceful solution of the Mid-
east conflict based on a full
Israeli pullback to the pre-June
1967 boundaries and a Palestin-
ian state on the West Bank.
Rabin also met with another
Republican, Sen. Charles Ma-
thias of Maryland, a member of
the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee. Mathias said he discuss-

was renorted to have met with
PLO leader Yasir Arafat some-
where in Lebanon and credited
the PLO with preserving order
in those parts of Lebanon it con-
trols, including the area near
the U.S. Embassy in Beirut.
According to the Washington
Star, which reported this, Ma-
thias, who met with Arafat be-
fore coming to Israel, was quot-
ed as saying that the PLO is
"providing a secure area for U.S.
Embassy personnel" and that
"the PLO or Fatah are really
the only ones providing law and
order, if you can so describe it,
in that part of Lebanon where
they are in control."
A State Department spokes-
man told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency, after being asked to
comment on Mathias' reported
remarks, that the U.S. Embassy
in Beirut "has been fairly well
protected by various forces, in-
cluding a neighborhood militia,"
during the year-old disturbances
in Lebanon.

Israeli Pilots Have Low
Regard for Soviet Fighters AJCoilg. Rejects Catholic Chargel
TEL AVTV (JTA) Israeli
fighter pilots gained a low op-
inion of the professional com-
petence of their Soviet counter-
parts, at least as of six years
ago, when outnumbered Israeli
jets downed five Soviets MIG-12s
in a dogfight over the Gulf of
Suez during the height of the
war of attrition with Egypt.
They found the Russians poor-
ly trained and clumsy in com-
The first report of the en-
counter, by one of the Israeli
pilots who participated in it,
was published today in the Air
Force magazine. The pilot was
not identified by name. His
opinions were shared by other
Israeli pilots and senior Air
Force officers.
THE CLASH between Israeli
Phantoms and Mirages and So-
viet MIGs occurred on July 30,
1970, when the Soviet piloted
jets, then part of Egypt's air
defenses, chased Israeli recon-
naissance planes returning from
a mission over Egypt.
The Soviets had 10 or more
planes In the air against six Is-
raeli fighters, the pilot recalled.
Within minutes, three of the
MIGs were shot down.
The pilot, who shot down the
fourth one. said in his story that
although his Soviet adversary
was in a superior combat posi-
tion at the outset, he did not
know how to utilize his advant-
"I DO not know what the Rus-
sian guy thought. What became
apparent to me is that he was
inexperienced and was not
aware of the basic moves in
such circumstances," the pilot
After the Russian "did two
things that are simply not
done," the Israeli brought him
down with an air-to-air missile.
Warsaw Ghetto
Memorial in N.Y.
Abraham Beame and Gov. Hugh
Carey proclaimed Sunday, Apr.
25, as "Warsaw Ghetto Com-
memoration Day" in New York
City and State. In his proclama-
tion, Beame declared that "it is
urgent that the world continues
to remember the heinous crimes
committeed during the Holo-
caust and honors the heroes
who fought at Warsaw."
Carey said that "permitting
society to forget this inhumane
episode (the Holocaust) would
be an even greater crime. By
remembering and paying tribute
to the memory of the six million
martyrs, we hopefully will pre-
vent historv from repeating
such a truculent act."

gathered inside and outside

tan's Fifth Avenue for a memo-
rial service Apr. 25 commem-

American Labor Movement
Will Honor Golda Meir
WASHINGTON(JTA)Former Israeli Premier Golda
Meir will receive the American labor movement's highest
award for public service, AFL-CIO President George Meany
has announced.
She will receive the award and a $5,000 check at a
dinner in Washington May 20. The award honors the mem-
ory of Philip Murray, late president of the CIO, and William
Green, late president of the AFL.
MRS. MEIR, a former Milwaukee school teacher whose
father was a member of the Carpenters Union, is a member
of Histadrut.
"All the goals that Green and Murray fought for
throughout their lives have been and are the goals of
Golda Meir," Meany said.

rector of the AJCongress, said
that "any comparison between
the right of a woman to have

dered in the Holocaust."

Rights, in a study called "Neo-

Israel Mum on 'Dado' Document
document which the late
Gen. David "Dado" Elazar
prepared two years ago
challenging the findings of
the Agranat Committee that
as Chief of Staff he was re-
sponsible for Israel's lack of
military preparedness when
the Yom Kippur War broke
out, was made public here
one day after Elazar was
buried with full military
honors on Mt. Herzl in Jeru-
salem. The retired former
Chief of Staff died of a heart
attack in Tel Aviv at the age
of 51.
He submitted the document,
at the time of his resignation
in April, 1974, to Premier Yitz-
hak Rabin, members of the Ca-
binet and to the members of
the Apranat Committee appoint-
ed by Premier Golda Meir in
1973 to investigate events lead-
ing up to the Yom Kippur War
and Israel's conduct of the bat-
IN IT, Elazar took issue with
two charges leveled against
him by the Agranat panel
that he did not warn of the im-
minence of war in October, 1973,
and that he, rather than the
then Defense Minister Moshe
Dayan, was responsible for Is-
rael's failure to mobilize in
Comments on the so-called
"Dado document" indicated that
persons in senior positions
found "loop holes" in the Agra-
nat report and that some Cabi-
net ministers did not whole-
heartedly back the findings but
were reluctant to say so at the
Some ministers, in fact, re-
portedly proposed the appoint-
ment of Elazar to be Israel's
Ambassador to the U.S., indicat-
ing their trust and high regard
for the general after reading
the Agranat report.
ELAZAR claimed in the do-
cument that Dayan failed to
exercise his legal authority to
call up the reserves on the eve
of the Yom Kippur War because
he was waiting for formal ap-
proval from Mrs. Meir.
Even on the day the war
broke out he delayed calling up
two reserve divisions until ap-
proval was forthcoming from
the Premier, which cost preci-
ous time, Elazar stated.
Therefore, he contended, the
Agranat panel was remiss in not
placing any responsibility on
Dayan. He also claimed that
some 400 intelligence reports,
some of them warning of the im-
minence of war, were not shown
to him by the intelligence
branch. Had he received them,
he might have alerted the gov-
ernment and the army, he
ELAZAR noted that every
niece of intelligence he receiv-
u First Marine
National Bank and Trust Company
ed was also received by the De-
fense Minister and that while
the Chief of Staff had only one
source of information army
intelligence Dayan had ac-
cess to many other sources.
The Defense Minister thus
bears the same responsibility as
the Chief of Staff, but the Agra-
nat Committee did not mention
that and placed sole responsi-
bility on his shoulders, Elazar
claimed in his document.

friends of the Jewish Community Day School sell their

Friday, May 7,
Yom Haatzmaut
Jews the world over will celebrate the 28th anni-
versary of the establishment of the modern State of
Israel next week with the observance of Yom Haatz-
maut, Israel Independence Day.
Significance of this year's 28th (Koach) birthday
i?.s been overshadowed by the continuing develop-
ments on the West Bank and in Lebanon, but Israel's
accomplishments in weathering economic, political and
military problems for more than a quarter of a cen-
tury merit public attention.
It is appropriate that one of the largest gatherings
in the United States marking Yom Haatzmaut will be
held here, in he Miami Beach Convention Center, Sat-
urday night. South Florida's Jewish community has
been in the forefront of aid to Israel since its birth
pains, and its identification with Israeli causes is known
Ambassador Simcha Dinitz recognizes the solidar-
ity of this area with Israel in the form of his personal
appearance as keynoter for Saturday night's program.
The plight of Soviet Jewry will not be forgotten
in the observance of Yom Haatzmaut, and the selec-
tion of a Russian refugee, Misha Raitzin, the Metro-
politan Opera star, to headline the entertainment pro-
gram is in keeping with that relationship.
Our presence at the celebration Saturday night
will be a vote for Israel's future.
Racism Link Renewed
The Arab states and their supporters have long
tried to link Israel with South Africa as "racist co-
lonial states." The Israeli government and most Is-
raelis abhor apartheid. But why should Israel have
given the Arab states a chance to further distort Israel's
Those who worked against the United Nations
General Assembly resolution equating Zionism with ra-
cism sought to stress that Israel should not be included
in a resolution aimed against apartheid and colonial-
ism. Now their efforts have been undercut.
The visit may also hurt Israel's attempts to win
friends among liberals, socialists, Blacks and labor
unions. Perhaps even more unfortunate, it may alien-
ate many young Jews, the group that is most impor-
tant to Israel's future.
Yet, despite the diplomatic break, many Black
Africans have remained friendly to Israel. And Israeli
officials have themselves pointed out that Black African
countries are having second thoughts about the break,
made under the pressure of the Arabs.
This development which has begun to show some
results at the UN may now be seriously set back as a
result of the Vorster visit.
Vorster Visit Unwise
Israel's friends may rightly wonder why the Is-
raeli government allowed South African Prime Minister
John Vorster to come to Israel for four days, conclud-
ing with joint economic ventures. Any economic ben-
efits achieved by the visit will be far outweighed by
the propaganda loss.
Israel has long taken what it called a "correct"
attitude to South Africa and this wise policy should
have continued.
Most people will not question the need for Israel
to carry out trade with South Africa. No one will argue
against the importance of Israel continuing its close
ties with the large South African Jewish community.
But to go beyond this is certainly unwise at a time
when the Israeli government, Jewish organizations and
Zionist groups are conducting vast campaigns through-
out the world to win friends for the Jewish State.

Meaning of Meaning of Words
WILLIAM Empson, the phi-
losopher and linguist, rais-
ed the question of the mean-
ing of meaning. What does it
mean for something to have
Lest this seem a bit precious,
consider the query of another
philosopher, W. T. Stace. He
asks: Is my red your red? We
both agree that something is
red in color and use red as a
word to describe it.
But how can we be sure we
are both in fact perceiving the
same thing despite the fact that
we are using the same word
for it?
EVEN THE ancient Greeks,
Socrates in particular, knew
that our senses are imperfect
and in different ways. So, to
use Stace's example, what does
it mean to say that sometW
to red or even for two or Z.
people to agree that somethE
they see is red? ^
What Empson was sussea
ing is that we must be careful
in our use of words to under-
stand that we may not be com-
municating at all.
THE FLAP between Gerald
Ford and Henry Kissinger the
other day raises the whole spec,
tre of the meaning of mean
the treachery of words^r!
ticularly as it relates to politi-
cians, who are chronic lingui*
tic drunkards anyway.
On Mar. 26, Kissinger, in one
of his traditional imperial pro-
nouncements, declared that the
United States had contacted
North Vietnam in order to in-
form the Communists that we
are prepared in principle "to
normalize relations with Ha-
But on Apr. 23, President
Ford denied it all. "I never
said we seek to normalize re-
lations or recognize North Viet-
nam," he explained at a newi
conference in Indianapolis.
THEN WHAT did Kissinger
mean when, speaking for Ford
on Mar. 26, he said that the
U.S. was prepared in prind-
pie "to normalize relations with
Hanoi and North Vietnam,
simply as words, ought to strike
terror in the Kissingerian lion
After all, there were all of
those years, all of those mil-
lions of words spoken and writ-
ten between him and Le Due
Tho in Paris guaranteeing in
good old star spangled style
the future of South Vietnam.
YET ONE month later, then-
was Hanoi ensconced in Saigon.
Apparently, Le Due Tho hadn't
taken the meaning of Henry's
words to mean anything other

Miami Rabbi Misses the Point
Volume 2

Interesting how events flow
to make a picture whole. A Mi-
ami Beach rabbi prepared a
sermon last week objecting to
the recent State Appeals Court
decision that permits the Bis-
cayne Yachting Club to continue
to bar Jews and other unde-
sirables from membership. One
would imagine that every Jew
would agree with his indigna-
tion that "we still have preju-
dice and bigotry in our land."
In theory, yes. In practice,
one would have to question the
meaning of Rabbi Phineas We
berman's "blast at the Ami
Defamation League" in his pre
pared sermon the week before
(It should be noted that I nei
ther heard nor read these ser
mons and only take the word
of the Miami Herald that they
were, in fact, given.)
FOR TO this rabbi, "There
should be nothing wrong in a
group of peqple choosing their
cultural, religious or ethnic sur-
Agreed. But as has been Rab-
bi Weberman's policy over the
years, his position on this not
only runs contrary to that
of the overwhelming majority
of the nation's Jewish commu-
nity but to well-established
American law and dangerously
smack* of the prejudice and
bigotry Rabbi David Raab plan-
ned to preach about
Rabbi Weberman makes It
appear that ADL's complaint
against those who advertised a
place called "Shomer Shabbat
Village" was directed against
people who wish to live with
others of like religious and cul-
tural preference.
In this case unlquHy ssai>*t
Jewish interests was only fol-
lowing its historic role of fight-
ing the property restrictions,
advertising and other tactics
aimed at depriving minorities
(and particularly Jews) of their
right to live and play where
they wished.
It was ADL and the Jewish
community which fought for the
laws which forbid advertising a
religious preference in housing
and recreations. It is sad, in-
deed, that an educated Jew
could be so narrow-minded as
not see that the risk of reinfect-
ing the housing market with
religious appeals Is a direct
threat to Jewish interest.
IT WOULD be strange if
Rabbi Weberman is not now
aware that the Jewiahly-con-
troUed Viking Corp. made its
"shomer shabbas" appeal as a
gimmick to attract business in
a distressed market.
In other words, there was no
business like shul business. Just
as in its now-discontinued ad-
vertisements for Miner's Pond,
the same company showed a
map of the area with important
and convenient shopping cen-
ters, places of interest,
churches. But not Temple Zion,
which is handiest of all. Or, no
business like church business.
Rabbi Weberman is not alone
"Viewpoint," the publication of
the Young Israel movement, to
loaded with advertisements that
stress synagogues, yeshivos,
"modern mikvahs," etc.
IF THERE Is any excuse for
that, it is that except for strays
like myself, "Viewpoint" is read
by the Orthodox members cf
Young Israel and is not intend-
ed for the general public.
It still contains the seeds of
justified discrimination against
those Jews who do not want to
live in a ghetto that is either
self-imposed or forced on them
by law.
The justification for this, that
appeals are made to "golf play-
ers, tennis players and swim-
mers," will remind some of that
old sick joke. When told that
Hitler was killing Jews and bi-
cycle riders, the anti-Semite
asked: "What does he haw
against bicycle riders?"
IN HIS obtuseness. his failure
to understand the principle in-
volved in ADL's proper concern
for ANY religious appeals in
housing advertisements, rUDW
Weberman continues his role *
giving aid and comfort to tne
hostile non-Jew by his pent*
ence in building a wall of *P
There is in the Talmud, w
me, a beautiful statement on"

the particular in Jewishi
"The falling of the rain ta great-
er than the giving of the uw,
for the giving of the Law was
a joy only to Israel, while u*
falling of the rain to a rejoicing
for all the world."
SO TOO, I see the unrestrict-
ed housing of all people, of lim-
ited Income and limited njo-
lity, and the desire to live where
they wish, to be more ImP^ j
certainly than the interests_
a developer and even morei ma

weekly portions of the Torah
are Ahare Mot (Aftar Death),
Kedoshim (Holiness) and Taz-
ria-Metzora (Leprosy). In 1948,
when the State of Israel was
established, the Seedra was Ke-
doshim and the Haftorah was
from Amos (750 BCE), who pro-
claimed "And I will turn cap-
tivity of my people Israel, and
they shall build the waste cities
and inhabit them and they
shall no more be plucked out
of their land, which I have
given them" (Amos 9, 14-15).
There is a Jewish saying,
"There is no Jewish simcha be-
hind which there is no tear."
The two happy occasions
Passover and Yom Ha'atzmaut
are the covers of a book, the
pages of which contain the story
of the Holocaust, the Tisha
B'Av of our time, the day of
our deepest sorrow.
Just as we are different from
other peoples in philosophy,
language and faith, so are we
different in our joy and in our
pain. In the Seedra of Tazria-
Metzora, we read about negalm,
leprosy, purification after pain
and isolation: "He shall dwell
alone; without the camp shall
his dwelling be."
AFTER ALMOST three dec-
ades of joy and sorrow, of ful-
fillment and achievement, of
courage and sorrow, Israel is
still quarantined, an alien, an
outsider in the camp of nations,
unclean, full of negaim.
Israel is being isolated by
the faulty strategy of idealists
(like our Secretary of State)
who have too many illusions
when they face realists who
have too little conscience. The
enemies of Israel are financial-
ly powerful beyond compre-
hension and own a resource on
which all industrial nations de-
Ail this and much more does
not look very encouraging. At
this time it is important to a
Jewish tradition which tells us
that Moshiachthe Messiah
was born on Tisha B'Av, the
saddest day of the year. In
times of pogroms, our grand-
parents would look upon those
sad days as Moshiachzeiten: out
of despair comes hope.
"Social decadence is the com-
post of social improvement,"
said a great man. Clean elec-
tion laws follow a Watergate.
Gun-control action follows an
assassination. The Renaissance
followed the Dark Ages.
AS WE JEWS celebrate joy
with tears, let us believe that
we are living in Moshiachzei-
ten. During these painful mo-
ments we must also remember
that we are one people. Our
destiny *s American Jews is
tied to the destiny of our peo-
ple in Israel, in Russia and in
any other country- We fall with
the defeat of our people any-
where, especially in Israel. We
rise with their glory.

unto the priests and sons of Aaron, and say unto them:
There shall none defile himself for the dead among his

mother, and for his father, and for his son, and for his
daughter, and for his brother; and for his sister a virgin.
They shall not take a woman that is a harlot, or
profaned; neither shall they take a woman put away

"shall take a wife in her virginity. A widow, or one di-
vorced, or a profaned woman, or a harlot, these shall
he not take" (Leviticus 21.13-14). No priest with a blem-

first day of the month, there shall be a solemn rest unto
you, a memorial proclaimed with the blast of horns a

Inside Judaica
Q Waa CokmlNW a Jaw*
A. Christopher Columbus Is
thought by more and more scho-
lars to have been of Marrano
extraction, reports the Encyclo-
paedia Judaica. He was mysteri-
ous when speaking of his origin,
apparently having something in
his background which he wished
to conceal.
He boasted about his connec-
tion with King David and had a
penchant for Jewish and Mar-
rano society. If he was really
born in Genoa, it may be as-
sumed that his parents were
Jewish or ex-Jewish refugees
from Spain. His strange signa-
ture, which he charged his son
always to use, is susceptible to
a Hebraic interpretation.
It is remarkable, moreover,
that Columbus began his ac-
count of his voyage with a re-
ference to the expulsion of the
Jews from Spain; that

Understanding the meaning
of meaning would not only help
him in foreign affairs. Take the
Woodward-Bernstein book, "The
Final Days," a massive cata-
logue of words.
Kissinger's initial reaction to
the book, like former Presi-
dent Nixon's, was resentment
and even rage.
TO COMPOUND the problem
that meaning of meaning pre-
sents to us, it should be remem-
bered that Nixon had hardly
any interest in what the words
meant at all, that is to say, the
moral aspersions the words
cast on his presidency.
All he wanted to know, and
from continuing accounts still
wants to know, is who spilled
the beans to Woodward and
Bernstein. The meaning of that
long catalogue of words to
Nixon, apparently, is not moral
but a call to arms to "get" the
traitor who ratted.
Not so with Dr. Kissinger,
who is an infinitely more com-
plex man. To Dr. Kissinger, the
Woodward-Bernstein book is an
abomination because the words
are "inaccurate" and therefore
unfair (a moral judgment Nixon
wouldn't even make).
WHERE IS it inaccurate and
unfair?, he has twice been ask-
ed by legislators on Capitol Hill
anxious to prevent the former
President from being further
tyrannized by the meaning of
meaning (for example, the fa-
mous April, 1974 television ap-
pearance in which Nixon, flank-
ed by stacks of Watergate tran-
scripts, and by a bust of Abra-
ham Lincoln, told us the mean-
ing of those transcripts when
he declared that in the words
of those transcripts was the
whole story, so help him).
Well, replied Dr. Kissinger,
it really isn't so much the in-
accuracy of the words in the
book as the "tone" of the words
he resents (a second moral
Where?, the legislators press-
ed him further, is the tone de-
HOW COULD he be expect-
ed to know?, Dr. Kissinger an-
swered, since the fact was that
he hadn't even read the Wood-
ward-Bernstein book
Reading the boon could have
nothing to do with anything,
could it?, least of all its tone.
In the end, I suppose, re-
commending Empson and Stace
to our Secretary of State would
be a redundant act anyway,
since he apparently can see
meaning in no words at all.

left the U.S. with President
Ford, where the "transitional
aid" issue was understood to
have been discussed.
In a news conference in
Egypt, JavitL stated for the
second time during his visit
there how impressed he had
been by Sadat's sincere desire
to achieve a peaceful settle-
He noted, though, that he and
Sadat had agreed to disagree
over PLO's role in a possible
was interpreted by some Israeli
correspondents in the U.S. as a
first sign that the President
might be reconsidering his op-
position to the transitional aid
under which Israel was to have
received $550 million for the
July to October period this year
during which U.S. government
will shift the dates of its bud-
getary year.
There have been reports,
some linked with the Javits-
Ford meeting, that Ford has in-
dicated he would be amenable
to a compromise in which the
U.S. would hand over half of
the original aid request.
Javits was due to report first
hand to Premier Rabin on his
meetings with Ford and with
Sadat. He also met with Defense
Minister Shimon Peres, For-
eign Minister Allon, Golda Meir,
Gen. Dayan, Abba Eban and
Menahem Begin.
At his request, a meeting was
also arranged with the new in-
formation director general, Prof.
Sholomo Avinerl.
MEANWHILE, the Prime Min-
ister's top aide, Amos Eran,
publicily reiterated that Israel
was taken by surprise by the
administration's decision, dur-
ing march, to oppose the tran-
sitional aid.
Interviewed in Haaretz, Eran
said, Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger had informed Prime
Minister Rabin, and had later
also informed leading Senators,
that the administration would
not ormose the aid provided the
Congress itself initiated the
A letter to this effect, signed
by top State Department Aide,
Robert McKloekey, had been
sent to Congress in mid-March,
and the administration's rever-
sal had occurred soon after this.
ERAN MADE the comments
in response to a Haaretz article
by columnist Joel Marcus who
pointed out that U.S. Ambassa-
dor Malcolm Toon claimed Is-
rael "ought not to have been
surprised" by the administra-
tion's decision.
Either Toon or Rabin was
telling an untruth, Marcus wrote
Sunday, and he challenged the
Premier's office to issue a pub-
lic statement rebirtting the en-
voy's version. Eran's comments
were intended to do just that.

South Florida to Demonstrate
Solidarity with Soviet Jews
Maior Jewish organizations
throughout Dade and Broward
Counties will mark Solidarity
Day with Soviet Jewry on Sun-
day, May 23, at 2:30 p.m. Large
numbers of concerned South
Floridians will gather at Lin-
coin Rd. and Washington Ave.
to begin a brief march down the
Mall to Euclid Ave., where they
will be addressed by Alexander
Luntz, a leading Russian-Jewish
activist who recently emigrated
to Israel.
The demonstration is coor-
dinated by the South Florida
Conference on Soviet Jewry, a
committee of the Greater Mi-
ami Jewish Federation's Com-
munity Relations Committee.
Sharing the platform with
Luntz will be a number of poli-
tical leaders representing area
nranicioalities, as well as reli-
gious leaders of several faiths.
Organizations participating in
the march include the local
chapters of Hadassah, National
Council of Jewish Women, Wom-
en's American ORT, B'nai B'rith,
Young Israel of Greater Miami,
United Synaeogue of America,
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations. Jewish Commu-
nity Centers of South Florida,
the Jewish Federation of South
Broward and the Greater Miami
Jewish Federation.
It is expected that every
group in tne area, as well as all
individuals concerned with the
plight of Soviet Jews, will par-
ticipate in Solidarity Day. Inter-
ested residents are urged to call
the South Florida Conference on
Soviet Jewry.
Ford Praises Syria in Lebanoi
President Ford praised with
Syria and Israel for having
"acted very responsibly" in
the Lebanon crisis. He said
that if the crisis is resolved
and a central government is
again functioning in Leba-
non, "then the restraint Syr-
ria has had and the restraint
Israel has had will have got-
ten the Middle East off one
of the most potential volatile
situations in recent months
The President also disclos-
ed that the U.S. is "working
with the parties" in the Mid-
east for an extension of the
mandate of the United Na-
tions Disengagement Observ-
er Force (UNDOF) on the
Golan Heights which expires
at the end of May.
FORD MADE his remarks in
response to questions at a meet-
ing with newspaper editors of
Texas where he is engaged in
a tight race with Ronald Rea-
gan in that state's Presidential
Ford also predicted "addition-
al headway" in the Middle East
if Israel and the Palestine Li-
beration Organization are able
to resolve their differences. He
stressed that "those two parties
will have to make that deci-
sion," according to a transcript
of his remarks.
While the President was
speaking here, his press secre-
ttary, Ron Nessen, briefing
newsmen at the White House,
indicated the expansion of U.S.
tolerance of Syrian intervention
in Lebanon. He said "the United
States opposes outside military
intervention that could lead to
a military confrontation or to a
Middle East war."
THAT WAS a departure from
Secretary of State Henry A. Kis-
singer's statement last Decem-
ber that the U.S. opposed mili-
tary intervention in Lebanon
from "any quarter" without the
qualifying reference to con-
frontation or war.
Later, however, when the
Syrian-sponsored Palestine Li-
beration Army and Syrian reg-
ulars entered Lebanon, Admin-
istration officials, including Kis-
singer, praised Syria's "con-
structive role"
Nessen said, according to the
White House transcript, "Even
though we are opposed to out-
side military intervention that
will lead to a confrontation, if
you look at Syria's intent and
nature of what they have done,
I think overall you would have
to say they have played a con-
structive role." He did not deny

Lebanon since then have indi-
cated that the U.S. put great
pressure on Israel not to move
against Lebanon in any way re-
gardless of possible provoca-
tions stemming from the prox-
imity of Syrian forces to the
Israeli border.
Ford's remarks here also
seemed to indicate an edging
away from the often stated U.S.
position that it would have no
contacts with the PLO unless
that group recognizes Israel's
existence as a sovereign state.
Asked, "Will Israel have to sit
down with the PLO?" Ford re-
"That is a decision they have
to make and it is, of course, in-
volved, because Israel says as
long as the PLO does not recog-
nize the existence of Israel they
are not going to net,

Jewish Agony
In Soviet
Union Today
AUTHOR writing book on conditions of life in the Soviet
ck'smith". who spent three^years in Moscow as correspond-
can omit describing the position of the Jews there.
f the New York Times, deals very extensively with the
' nt of Jewa in the USSR and with their moods in
"'vHlent ht.ok "The Russians," just published.
' The author devotes many pages to the "Pariahs" as the
i. d jCWs are called by some in the Soviet Union. He
Is out the anti-Jewish discriminations practiced in the gov-
nment system. ,
HE ANALYZES the feelings of anti-Semitism prevailing
fa the population, especially in the Ukraine. He tells of
. .rowing interest among completely assimilated Soviet-born
n to know more about Jewishness. He deals, of course, with
l movement among the Jews to emigrate.
H also presents reasons given by Jews who are not in-
ttd to leave the country. He estimates that a million or
ore Jews have already opted for assimilation in Soviet life
I left themselves no way out.
SOME OF his observations arc not new. but some of the
i which he brings out are new. During the three years of
residence in Moscow and in the short visits he made
fothir cities in various parts of the Soviet Union he had
ortunities to meet all kinds of Jews. He was also in close
with dissident Jews, despite the isolation in which for-
corresnondents ire held in Moscow
The general picture of the situation of the Jews in the
SR emerging from his well-written book is that they are
I most mistreated national minority in the USSR
THEY ARE derisively called "the pyaty punkty" "the
i pointers" a reference to the point No. 5 in their identity
uments which stamps them specifically as Jews, thus pre-
titw them from holding certain positions, restricting their
ortunities to higher education, and making their lives dif-
in many other wavs.
The remarkable phenomenon in Soviet life today is the
l that although Jews are treated worse than any other na-
nalit in the USSR many Russians. Ukrainians. Latvians.
ntiins and other Soviet non-Jews seek intermarriage with
n, Smith established.
THEY BELIEVE that intermarriage with Jews will be help-
I to them to emigrate from the Soviet Union as members of
| Jewish familv.
The author illustrates this point by telling one of the many
noing around in Moscow:
Abramovich was summoned for questioning to OVTR. the
riet office which decides on applications for exit visas. "Abra-
irich." says the OVIR colonel. "You have a good position as
ifessor. Why do you want to leave for Israel?" To which
pimovich replies defensively: "It's not me who wants to
it'- the wife and the children."
"BUT ABRAMOVICH," insists the colonel, "you have a
f* apartment and a summer home. Why should you want to
ve vour socialist motherland?" To which Abramovich. shrug-
Waters: "It's net me who wants to go: it's the mother-
Mi "
"fill me. Abramovich. what is it?" the colonel implores
p have even bought yourself a car. Why should you want
]Vt "P this eood life?" Abramovich responds: "I told you.
"it me who wants to go. It's the aunt and the cousins"
NMt'i "tif you don' want ,0 R0, wnv did you app'y?'*the
p f asks "Don't you see?" Abramovich exolains. "I am
v Jew in the family ."
rj SAYS that originally, the Kremlin was startled by
wenness with which the Soviet Jews started their move-
( r emigration. The Kremlin could have finished the move-
h a trice, he asserts, but the powerful organized support

Do We Really Need
More Horror Stories?
A^S NEW books on concentration camp ex-
periences make their appearance, I hear
some individuals question the need for more
horror stories. These books, however, are
more than horror fantasies. They are real and
they are true. The need to remind ourselves,
our children and our non-Jewish friends is
still pressing.
An inmate of the Lwow Concentration
Camp, Leon Richman, has written "Why?
Extermination Camp Lwow (Lemberg), 134
Janowska Street, Poland" (Vantage, $5.95).
This is the infamous camp recorded in Leon
vV. Wells's well-known account "The Janow-
ska Road."
RICHMAN'S prose is more documentary
n style than Well's. He divides his chapters
according to particular episodes listing the
names of the Nazis, their criminal activities,
and their victims.
He speaks deliberately and graphically.
His account needs no elaboration or historical
explanation. It stands alone.
A different and unusual collection of con-
centration camp memoirs is "This Way for
the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen" (Penguin,
$2.95). The author. Tadeusz Morowski, was a
non-Jewish Polish Communist who was an
"Aryan" prisoner in Auschwitz.
HE IS the narrator of three of the twelve
stories. Borowski is both an executioner and
a victim. He willingly accepts responsibility
and guilt for his participation in Auschwitz.
He does not write to exonerate himself of
that guilt, but rather to crystaJize it for him-
self and his readers.
This young man was looked to as the great-
est hope of both Polish literature and the
Polish Communist Party after the war. It came
as a shock when he committed suicide in 1951
BOROWSKI is an accomplished writer. In
this slim volume he speaks from his extra-
ordinary vantage point with mixed emotions:
hate, pity, helplessness for the Jews and
for himself.
Susan Fromberg Schaeffer, author of
"Anya," a beautiful story of a girl who lives
through the Holocaust, presents us with a
series of poems about frogs. "The Rhymes
and Ruines of the Toad" (Macmillan, S6.95)
is overdone in its silver mylar jacket; and it
is overpriced for its 71 pages. The stories are
strange. They can be translated to the world
of people, but for what purpose.
THE MESSAGE is dark and dreary. A father
toad tells his children about the beginning of
the world and ends by throwing himself down
on his rock crying.
Another poem depicts a little boy swallow-
ing his "cold, ugly" toad for fear his parents
would not like his companion. Very peculiar.
The illustrations by Sebastian Fleuret add
to the eeriness of the book. Detailed, realistic
drawings of fierce, bug-eyed toads are fright-
ening to the point of being offensive. I would
not recommend this book for children, and
there is little for adults as well.
John Adams Left Money For
School (o Teach Hebrew
INHERE WAS a bit of a streak of vanity in
John Adams to which he himself confessed
and if he were to arise today he might briefly
expand his chest and say "My. my. Look at all
the attention I am getting."
Of all the founding fathers, none is being
-ccalled more in this year of celebration. The
-eason is that he played a dominant role in
1776. On that hot July day in Philadelphia, it
vas Adams who led the fight for independence.
?ut there are other reasons.
HE WAS an unusually interesting person,
a scholar as well as a man of great courage
He was interesting even for his faults. He was
of a passionate nature and sometimes could
swear as well as Andrew Jackson and that is
saying a good deal. But with all of his faults,
as Jefferson wrote, if you got to know him, you
vould be sure to like him.
Jews have an added reason for liking him.
He was their friend and he didn't express his
friendship to get the Jewish vote.
Adams and Jefferson were of opposing
parties, but for some years they carried on a
:orrespondence. In a letter to Jefferson, he
"IN SPITE of Bolingbroke and Voltaire, I
will insist that the Hebrews have done more
o civilize man than any other nations.
"If 1 were an atheist and believed in blind
eternal fate, I would have to hold that fate
had ordained the Jews to be the most essential
instrument for civilization. I cannot say that
I love the Jews very much nor the French, nor
the English, nor the Romans, nor the Greeks.
We must love all nations as well as we can but
it is very hard to love most of them."
In another letter to Judge Adrian van der
Kent, he expressed his bafflement at Voltaire's
anti-Semitism "How is it possible," he wrote,
"that he should view the Hebrews in this light.
They are the most glorious people ever to in-
labit the earth.
-THE ROMANS and their empire were but
i bauble in comparison to the Jews. They have
ziven religion to three quarters of the globe
ind have influenced the affairs of mankind
-nore hopefully than any other nation, ancient
W modern."
Adams did more than talk. One might say
that John Adams was a pioneer in the field of
Hebrew education and even that he helped
found one of the first Hebrew schools in Amer-
ica. Anyway, he did something like that for
which he deserves to be remembered by all
lews. Four years before his death, in a codicil
to his will, he bequeathed funds for the estab-
lishment of a school in which Hebrew was to
x taught along with the classical languages.

What more does he need to squeeze Israel to the
breaking point? Indeed, he allows himself the luxury
j{ ditching further reliance on the USSR.
CAN ANYTHING good come of such apprehen-
sion? A long shot answer is "Yes." Why? Because if
ill of the world Israel certainly included is
to be saved from destruction, sanity must be ap-
plied to the boundless escalation of weapons before
he breaking point.
WE ARE told to button up our lips, to cease in-
quiring out loud into the possibility of universal
incineration, to raise no questions about the wisdom
f Pentagon thinking and Pentagon economics.
If a Sen. Proxmire and a Rep. Aspin question the
validity of CIA estimates on comparative Russian
and American dollar costs on defense and we con-
chide these lawmakers may have a point, we are
told not to go public on that because brains superior
to the minds of Proxmire and Aspin know better.
Dare we look at the facts again on overkill? Are
we free to repeat the truth that for some time now
:he Soviet Union and the United States have nuclear
itriking power that measures 15 tons of TNT for
;very inhabitant of the earth? Have we forgotten
that all of the Soviet Union's and America's major
:ities of 100,000 and over can be reduced to pulp
if nuclear warfare bursts open?
