(JTA) Interior Minister
Gen. Albano E. Barguin-
deguy has assured the
Jewish community that
"adverse opinions" re-
garding its solidarity and
devotion to Israel are not
shared by the Argentine
government and people.
"I am convinced that the
Argentinian Jews are very
much aware which are the
limits between filial de-
votion (to Israel) and our
duties as Argentine citi-
zens and only a mis-
chievous reading of these
limits could cause critical
judgments," he said.
ments were published in the
Jewish weekly, Mundo Israelita,
in the form of responses to
written questions submitted to
the Minister by the editors.
The interview was clearly
intended to elicit the govern-
ment's attitude toward the Jew-
ish community which has
become increasingly concerned
over the upsurge of anti-Semitic
propaganda and vandalism by
right-wing groups and charges of
dual loyalty leveled against Ar-
gentine Jews who support Israel.

THE STORY of this con-

Jorker. moved into a con-
dominium complex in Delray

there and he immediately
recognized the need for a place of

,-..- rger .uart*" and Rev.
William W. Roughton of the
Cason United Methodist Church
in Delray Beach offered the
chapels Fellowship Room to
Bialer for Friday night services,
which are still held there today.
This arrangement, in addition
to daily services in private
apartments and High Holy Day
services in the main auditorium
of Kings Point condominium
complex, was sufficient tem-
porarily, but the group recog-
nized the need for a permanent
worship place.
EARLY IN 1974 the Delray
Hebrew Congregation was
formed and Bialer became
president. The group's objective
was. and still is, to raise money
to build a temple.
The congregation'8 member-
ship has grown since its in-
ception from the 22 original
founders to about 1,000 mem-
bers. Most of the members are
retired senior citizens from the
A fund-raising drive has
yielded over $200,000 to date.
Last year, 45 acres of land
were purchased. A sign on the
property announces the in-
tentions of a determined con-
gregation- "Temple of the
Delray Hebrew Congregation
will be erected on this site."
Money is still needed to begin
building the temple. Benjamin
Kessler, 65, vice president of the
Ways and Means Committee for
the congregation said, "We need
another $100,000 to $150,000 for
a little breathing room. We're
sending out letters to all people
in the area, to foundations .
we're looking for anything we
can to help us out."
Saffer said that the
congregation is attempting to
build the temple, which is ex-
pected to cost about $1 million,
without a mortgage.
BIALER SAID that a rabbi
and cantor must be hired as well,
but until the building is com-
pleted, he acts as spiritual leader
for the services at the apartment
and at the Cason United
Methodist Church.
Allen Lawrence, 70, chairman
of the. congregation's building

According to Bialer, "The
temple we are going to build will

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
Soviet Jews Appeal and Hope
Nearly 100 activists from 14 of the main Soviet centers
addressed an open letter to both United States
Presidential candidates Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter
impressing upon them the importance of maintaining
American pressure on the Soviet leadership to carry out
its commitment under the Helsinki Agreement. The
Appeal read:
It is with great satisfaction and much hope that we
heard about the fact that the questions of freedom of
emigration received great attention in your statements
and your pre-election platforms. Only a really free great
country could show such interest in the fates and the
rights of people of other countries. We understand that the
future President of the USA will be responsible first and
foremost for the American people, but we also hope that
we will continue the American historical tradition with
its deep and principled respects for the rights of man
wherever he lived. This tradition notably distinguishes the
USA among the other nations.
Both of you have to deal, of course, with much more
pressing problems than the emigration of Jews from the
I SSR, but, at the same time, the observance of human
rights can become a most important test of the sincerity of
the interrelations between great powers and the
Helsinki Conference has confirmed this.
Under the pressure of the international public opinion
the Soviet authorities were compelled to allow more than
130,000 Soviet Jews become reunited with their nation.
Yet, at the same time, they created a whole apparatus of
pressure and repressions directed against those who want
to and try to realize their right to emigrate.
The USSR is not fulfilling the obligations it took up in
Helsinki in regards to human rights. Only the continuous
and persistent pressure of the international public opinion
and especially of the American people and its leaders
could make the Soviet Union fulfill these obligations.
There is no doubt that the lives and the freedom of
many people depend on your moral position in in-
ternational politics.
Reports from throughout the Soviet Union indicate that
a record number of Jews celebrated the Jewish New Year.
One participant from Leningrad said "not only are there
more people than ever before, but it is good to see many
more young men and women in the congregation."
IN MOSCOW, the congregation remembering the
incidents last year when city traffic had been deliberately
diverted down the narrow street outside the synagogue
were again prepared for trouble. But the police, aware of
the outcry caused by the 1975 Street fighting, watched
without interfering.
REPORTS FROM RIGA which has no official
synagogue indicate that groups of Jews met all over the
city in private homes.
Arkady Tsinoher who played host to such a group,
said "our flat was crowded out. the feeling was one of real
hope. After the service we went on for a long time singing
Hebrew songs."
Perhaps the largest congregations were in Minsk. "Not
only was the synagogue filled to overflowing." a Minsk
activist reported, hut there were many new young faces.
Some came to pray and some to talk about the prospects
of Aliya."
Even in remote Tbilisi with one of the most ancient
synagogues in the Soviet Union, where until recently only
elderly Jews worshipped this year's service attracted
many young Georgian and Ashkenazi Jews. Because the
synagogue was full, many stayed outside to exchange
information about their applications to emigrate.
THE GENERAL MOOD throughout the soviet Union
appears to have been buoyant to optimistic. As a Moscow
activist told a friend from London. "You can tell Jews in
the West that they have many friends here. I hope that
next Rosh Hashanah you will have fewer here and a lot of
new ones in Jerusalem."

United States had a secret spat
with Mexico earlier this year
over illegal aliens. Here are the
backstage details.
There are between six and
eight million illegal aliens in this
country today. The Immigration
Service calls them "illegals."
About 60 percent of them
came from Mexico. They came
here, as our own forefathers did,
in search of a better life. But un-
fortunately, their presence has
stirred up resentment. They are
willing to work for low wages.
Therefore, they have taken jobs
from U.S. citizens.
IN THE past, the Im-
migration Service rounded up
these illegal aliens and simply
dumped them on the Mexican
border. But this year, im-
migration officials decided to try
a more humane experiment.
They also reasoned that the
illegals would be less likely to
return to the United States if
they were repatriated close to
their homes.
So the Immigration Service
hired a small charter airline
company to fly the illegals back
into the interior of Mexico,
rather than releasing them at the
THIS UPSET the Mexican
government, which had not been
notified. So Mexican officials,
understandably, refused to
cooperate. The State De-
partment sent trouble-shooting
diplomats to smooth things over.
They reached a new agreement
after two months of delicate
Mexican illegals are now being
shipped into the interior on
regularly scheduled flights,
instead of charter planes. Each
illegal is also interviewed by a
Mexican consul before he is
accepted back into Mexico.
Since July, about 7,500
Mexican illegals have been

BUT THERE'S another side
to Strom Thurmond. A couple of
weeks ago he received a touching
letter from a Columbia, S.C..

In 1947 General De Gaulle
awarded Ruth Kluger the Croix

Resistance fighters. Several
months later the French govern-

ment of Israel awarded her the
Aleh, the highest Israeli honor
for participation in all activities
of the underground.
I had the honor of in-
terviewing this marvelous "Lady
Israel" (as she was so often
called in Europe even before the
state of Israel was born) at the
recent Board of Directors
Weekend Conference in Sep-
tember. Her fiery determination
had not waned over the years
and as she spoke to me I could
envision this modern day "Joan
of Arc" so vividly involved with
the beginnings of the largest
underground rescue operation of
all time.
I asked Ms. Kluger why she
was presently in the United
States: "I came to the States
this time," Ms. Kluger said,
"representing Israel for an
'International Congress for

mind that it would be about the

the biggest congress ever held
about 1,500 delegates from 47
countries and of course the
interest of the Arab represen-
tation was enormous.
"We (Israel) made ourselves
felt ... we had instead of
quantity quality," Ms. Kluger
continued. "After the Congress I
had the opportunity to meet
with several Harvard professors
and discuss with them the 'socio-
political' situation in Israel as

From there Ms. Kluger
traveled to Philadelphia where
she experienced "one of the
greatest highlights of emotion"
of her visit here the per-
formance of the Israeli Phil-
harmonic Orchestra, Israel's gift
to the United States on the
celebration of its 200th birthday.
Ms. Kluger then spoke of her
incredible life: "Now if you see
me something extraordinary .
I would like to sum it up and not
speak about myself ... I can
only underline, it was one of the
rarest privileges, to be able to
face the arch enemy of ouj
people, of this century, and take out from his murderous
clutches from the burning
ovens from the torture that
he prepared for our people ... at
least 200,000.
"It might sound like a drop in
the sea in comparison with six
million, but it is a magnitude .
because those 200,000 have
given us the heroes of the Six-
Day War, the children that we
tost in the Yom Kippur War,

year-olds who are fulfilling now,
on the Lebanese border, a task of
humanitarian endeavor ... to

to give him water, to heal his
wounds, to keep the gates open

"Those are the children and
grandchildren of those 200,000

lege was bestowed upon me and
upon my friends that were with
me but it was. To be proud
of that ... I am very humble
. I'm not proud ... To think
in our days we still are not aware

grandeur to be witnessed of the

she said.
Ms. Kluger stated that she

Rabinowitz of Washington, D.C., president of the Rabbinical
With 166 of its almost 1,000 members answering the
questionnaire on conversion, the Rabbinical Assembly survey,
conducted by Chaplain Gary L. Atkins, now serving in the
U.S. Air Force in the Philippines, indicated that over 90
percent have positive feelings about conversion, or accept it as
a valid aspect of contemporary Jewish life.
Only one of the rabbis refuses to participate in con-
versions, with another two stating that they do their best to
discourage individuals seeking to convert. Over 42 percent of
those answering the questionnaire favor positive programs of
conversion, with an additional 50 percent accepting con-
versions, particularly among intermarried couples, as a normal
aspect of rabbinical life.

Florida could gain $50 million a year more in federal aid in
coming years because of a mid-decade census and annual
estimate bill, passed by the House and Senate prior to its
adjoourning in Washington last week, that will help target
federal spending more accurately by providing better
population information.
The measure, H.R. 11337, was introduced in the Senate by
Sen. Richard Stone and in the House of Representatives by
Rep. Patricia Schroeder of Colorado. Rep. William Lehman
and Rep. Dante Fascell supported it.
H.R. 11337 mandates an accurate population count every
five years, instead of every ten. It also requires the Census
Bureau to publish estimates of total population and other
population characteristics annually where possible.
A check for $2,500, together with a message of support,

Kluger-Aliav, humanitarian and author of "The Last Escape."
Ms. Kluger-Aliav helped organize the Aliyah-Bet, the illegal
immigration movement, prior to World War II, to rescue Jews
from Hitler's Europe.
At a recent Women's Division meeting Ruth-Kluger-Aliav
discussed the challenges of today's women in meeting the
obligations of the Jewish community here and abroad. Mr.
Kluger-Aliav asked them to make "financial sacrifices so that
the state of Israel may survive." She also spoke of the

be solved.
Pen Is Firepower For Good or Evil

I am holding a pen in my
hand. Believe it or not, it's a
weapon or it could be. I
picked it up off the ground as we
were touring an archaeologic site
in Israel. Our guide turned white
as he told me to put it in a
concrete receptacle nearby. I
asked him why he seemed afraid.
He proceeded to explain that in
Israel, one never picks anything
up off the ground. It could easily
be a terrorist device. The
children in Israel are told never
to do this. If a child brings home
an object that has been picked
up, the parent immediately calls
the police who come out and take
it away.
My son's pockets are always
full of items gathered in the
streets each and every day. Can
you imagine a little boy not
doing this? The children of Israel
can't. They can't gather these
"important treasures" to add to
a collection.
We were sick when we heard
this. You reach a point where
you say "enough already." How

by one minister, he said that at

Arabs Destroy Religious Articles
The government is trying
desperately to cool in-
flamed passions that
erupted over the Yom Kip-
pur weekend in a bitter
clash between religious
Jews and Arabs in this
West Bank town, site of
shrines sacred to both the
Jewish and Moslem faiths.
The events touched off
rioting in other West Bank
towns and villages during
which numerous Arabs
were arrested and several
wounded in skirmishes
with Israeli troops and
border police.
THEY ALSO resulted in a
sharp polarization of opinion
among Israeli Jews with
potentially far-reaching political
repercussions for the Rabin
The violence was precipitated
by the destruction of Jewish
religious artifacts in the Mach-
pela Cave (Tomb of the
Patriarchs) where Jews and
Moslems are permitted to
worship, but at separate times.
According to eye-witnesses,
the cave was entered Sunday
morning by a "frenzied mob'* of
about 200 Arab youths who left
the Jewish area in shambles,
ripping Sifrei Torahs and
prayerbooks and smashing and
scattering the furnishings.
Those acts followed what local
Arabs charged was the
deliberate desecration of the
Koran, the Moslem holy
scriptures, by Jews from the
nearby Orthodox township of
Kiryat Arba.
arriving at the cave later Sunday
for prayers to usher in Yom
Kippur, were greeted by the
scene of destruction. According
to eye-witnesses, they were
stunned and then infuriated.
One eye-witness reported that
a fistfight developed between
two Jews and several Arabs
inside the shrine when Jews dis-
covered that an altar cloth had
been torn.
Soldiers intervened to keep the
clash from spreading. But
tempers were already running
high because of an incident the
previous day when Israeli
soldiers prevented Kiryat Arba
Jews from conducting Sabbath
services at the old Ohel
Avraham synagogue a few yards
from the Machpela Cave.

The Jewish officers and
Moslem dignitaries reportedly
agreed on the need to calm
tempers. The Moslem leaders,
however, prepared a memo con-
demning the act which was
broadcast by radio throughout
the Arab world.

those acts. Muhatassib ex-
pressed painful regret over the
desecration of Jewish articles, as

The American Jewish community Is now searching
Its minds and hearts. A decision must be made on
November 2nd.
But K Is not just a decision on who's going to be our
next President
There is much more at stake here: the justice and
equatry promised by our Constitution. And the survival
of a promised land, Israel.
The records of the candidates must be examined
Carefully and objectively. For unless a President attends
to human rights and decency at home, he will neglect
them in foreign affairs also. If the American Jewish
community takes the time to judge each candidate on
these terms, there should be no doubtno doubt
whatsoeverthat Jimmy Carter should be the next
President of the United States.
When Gerald Ford took office, there were 5 million
persons unemployed That number has increased to
7 1/2 million people. We've seen inflation soar, while
pressing needs in hearth care, housing and education go
unmet. We've seen a growing lack of confidence in our
country's institutions, arising from a lack of confidence in
our government.
The Ford Administration in 1975 refused to allow the
Commerce Department to disclose to Congress reports
by American corporations participating in the Arab
boycott, until Commerce Secretary Morton was cited for
In March, 1975. the Ford Administration "reassessed'
America's relationship with Israel. This included a virtual
embargo of critical military aid, the outright stalling of
badly needed funds, and a verbal attack branding Israel as
short-sighted'' and "needlessly intransigent''
Since 1974, the Ford Administration has provided Arab
States on Israel's borders and in the Persian Gulf with $8
billion worth of military equipment.
An Jury of 1975, the Ford Administration sought to
supply Jordan with highly mobile Hawk missiles and only
after intense Congressional pressure, assured that the
missiles would be non-mobile.

fairly it deals with the many who must depend on it. A A
WW Our nation should make K
clear that a bask cornerstone of our foreign poicy is the
preservation of a strong and secure Israel.
On social services:
"The Republican Administrations have
reduced, underfunded and vetoed virtually
every social service program proposed.
The Carter Administration seeks to restore

should not have to worry whether their
basic needs will be met."
On health care:
"We need a nationwide health care delivery
system. The Carter Administration is
committed to freedom from fear of illness
and so is the Jewish community
throughout America. We know this job can

On cultural neighborhoods:
"We can have an America that encourages
and takes pride in our ethnic diversity, our
religious diversity and our cultural diversity.
We know that our pluralistic heritage has

groups as college youth and
senior citizens.

said, "is a strong indication thui
Carter's support is soft in the

Sophisticated Missile
System for Israel
WASHINGTON Only hours after Israeli Foreign
Minister Yigal Allon said here that "no new arms agreement"
has been made between Israel and the U.S., but that a "new
decision" on "important items" was reached by the U.S., it
was disclosed that the United States will provide Israel with a
new night-fighting anti-tank missile guidance system.
The system is known as FLIR Forward-Looking Infra-
Red and it takes the place of conventional radar equipment,
enabling potential targets to be spotted from planes or on land
at night and in bad weather.
FLIR SENSES heat and is able to distinguish between
military targets and inert objects. Its major characteristic is
that it cannot be jammed.
The new system will thus provide Israel with what it so
desperately needed during the 1973 war and has been asking
for from the U.S. ever since.
During the 1973 war, Israel lost many tanks to Syrian
military forces in night fighting and could not effectively
FLIR AND other unspecified military equipment will be
provided to Israel under the existing $1.5 billion fiscal year
1977 and won't represent an increase in foreign aid to Israel.
Observers here promptly declared that President Ford
announced the new decision to supply Israel with this most
sophisticated system as a consequence of statements he made
in his debate with Democratic nominee Jimmy Carter last
During that debate, both candidates spoke favorably of
the U.S. commitment to Israel's survival and of Israel as
America's principal ally, not only in the Middle East but in
the world.
It was considered at the time that both Ford and Carter
were angling for the Jewish vote.
WHITE HOUSE press secretary Ron Nessen promptly
declared as "unworthy of answer" these observations. Also
recalled was a statement by Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger recently that "the new military item would be
approved for sale at just about this time."
While posing for photographs in the Oval office, Allon
and Ford were heard conversing. According to reporters
present, the Israeli Foreign Minister expressed his thanks and
"satisfaction with your (Ford's) new decision on the modern
(inaudible) and other important items."
Ford was heard to reply that "it obviously was the right
thing to do to make certain that it was no question about the
support and to meet the circumstances that we want to
NO AMPLIFICATION of those remarks was given by
the White House or by Allon when he met with reporters
afterwards. At that time, Allon had merely .aid that "there is
no new arms agreement."
Following the U.S. announcement, both Dr. Kissinger and
Allon explained that Israel provides the U.S. with a "shopping
list" of weapons and related items in which it is interested.
The U.S. then reveals what will be made available to Israel for
purchase, after which it takes months for the arrangement to
be implemented.

extension of the Export Ad-
ministration Act.
MANY Washington observers
said the bill, which contained
strong anti-boycott provisions,
died because of delaying tactics
by Administration supporters in
the Senate. Earlier, Carter
charged that "the Arabs have
put pressure on Mr. Ford, and
he's yielded, and has permitted a
boycott by the Arab countries of
American businesses who trade
with Israel or who have
American Jews owning or taking
part in the management of
American companies."
Carter said that former
Commerce Secretary Rogers
C. B. Morton had to be sub-
poenaed by Congress in order to
reveal the names of companies
subjected to the boycott. Carter
noted that the boycott, now
aimed at "people in this country
who happen to be Jews" might
some day be directed by a
foreign country against
Catholics or Baptists.
porters of anti-boycott measures
said in Washington they were
amazed by the ."resident's
remarks noting that the Ad-
ministration had been opposed
to any new laws against the
boycott. Meanwhile, the Com-
merce Department announced it
would not reveal the names of
companies that had complied
with the boycott in the past.
Only those who planned to
comply in the future would be
named, the Department said.
The two Presidential can-
didates stressed support of
Israel. Carter charged that the
bulk of U.S. arms sales in the
Middle East goes to Iran and
Arab countries while Ford noted
that since he became President,
Israel received over $4 billion in
military hardware

Professionals love to talk
about their fields of expertise
and knowledge, but mostly with
other professionals. Lawyers
enjoy legal chit chat with
lawyers, doctors medical
dialogue with doctors, ac-
countants discourse with other
accountants. But clergymen are
different. We'll talk about the
work we love with everybody.
We never think anyone's in-
capable of sharing our interest,
our enthusiasm or our love for
I never heard a doctor or a
lawyer or an accountant
discussing his professional
theories and philosophies with
his barber, but I always talk
about religion with mine. With
him, and also with his friend,
who often seems to linger in the
shop for this very purpose. My
wife thinks I need the
stimulation of the conversation
far more than the haircut itself.
Last time, we talked about
Jewish concepts of the Messiah,
how they differ from those of
Christianity, how Reform
Judaism clings only to the hope
of a coming messianic age, while
Conservative and Orthodox
Judaism still speak of a personal
Messiah, even though it's really
just a figure of speech, a wishful
dream, an illusion void of
substance or reality.
A little later, I got to telling
them of the uniqueness of
Judaism's attitude toward other
religions, how we're not merely
tolerant and respectful of them,
but how we actually consider
other religions just as noble as
our own. After all, Judaism
never taught that one had to be
a Jew. The Talmud itself says
quite clearly, "There is an equal
place for the righteous of all
faiths in the world to come."
The main point for us is "How
does another man's religion
affect his own way of life?"
Judaism measures the value of
every religion, by its effect for
goodness upon its own followers.
Some time later, I thought
again of this conversation, and I
wondered to myself, "Why is it
that we don't see this about our-
selves? Why can't I ever get this
message across to my own
people? Is Judaism itself to be
measured by any other standard
than the one we apply to all
others?" Then suddenly I
recalled someone who recently
came into the temple office. I
was so happy to see this par-
ticular man, realizing that he
had fully recovered from a recent
hospital illness, quite a serious
And as I talked to this
member, a retired man without
any time consuming com-
mitments, I found myself asking
him to do things for his temple;
to serve more actively, to invite
new friends to affiliate, to get on
a committee, to join in study, to
become a leader. He laughed, as
he went about signing his check.
"There's no way," he said.
"There's no way anything but
mealtime is going to get me off
that golf course this year. I'll
honor my pledges and come to
services on Friday nights like I
always do, but please don't j
expect any more than that."
For once I was at a loss myself
for words. Anyway, what could I
say in reply that would not be
offensive? Was he so different
than countless others in my con-
gregation? Wasn't it my own
fault that I go around telling
people in barber shops that
Judaism measures other
religions by their effect for
goodness upon their followers,
and have failed to convey to my
own flock that that's the only
way to measure Judaism too?
Anyway, what good would it
do to offend a member, and
maybe lose a member, by chal-
lenging his own worthiness,
when he really considers himself
quite a fine fellow? So what if he
thinks doing nothing is being
religious? After all, he's not
hurting anybody, and he does
come to services regularly, and is
he really much different than all
the others? Any worse, that is?
I used to wonder why folks
affiliate with the synagogue.
Most Rabbis wonder why they
do not. When I used to ask long
ago, the answers were simply
"for the children" or else,
"because our family has always
belonged," or else, "it's the right
thing to do, especially when
you're new in town." I never
heard anyone say, "I belong to
the temple because I believe,
because I want to change my
life, because I want to spread the
truths and the influence of my
religion." I don't ask any more,
but I keep on wondering why
you do not ask yourselves the
reason, why you are not more
curious about Judaism, why you
do not feel a necessity to define
your religion, to evaluate your
religion, to measure the impact
of your religion upon your own
There is certainly no question
that we are living in one of the
strongest periods of Jewish
identity, in all the thousands of
years of our history. Just a short
time ago, the New Yorker even
wrote that it's "in" to be Jewish.
Today we are counted as an
equal partner in the religious
triumverate of our land.
Religious discrimination is at an
all time low. We are accepted
virtually everywhere we go. The
State of Israel has given us
world recognition for better or
for worse, but at least no one can
call the Jews an enigma
The state has also buoyed up
our own self-consciousness and
involved most of us quite per-
sonally in the notion of Jewish
survival. In this community, like
so many others, there are more
synagogues and diverse Jewish
organizations than ever before.
And in general, hardly anyone of
Jewish persuasion tends to deny
it, or tries to hide it, or runs
away anymore.
But with all that, what we also
have today is the strangest,
vaguest, weirdest, weakest, most
intangible, least demanding,
most effortless, formless,
passive, unintelligible, mixed up
and confused kinds of Jewish
identity ever imaginable.
For the most part, our people,
affiliated or unaffiliated, in-
volved or uninvolved, young or
old, do not care or think deeply
about their Jewishness at all.
And they have not worked out
any logical or consistent pat-
terns of Jewish expression, for
themselves or their families.
They talk about Jewish con-
sciousness and identity and even
Jewish faith, in such simple and
often naive ways, that cannot
and will not reflect the majesty
of Judaism or of Jewish genius
throughout the millenia.
Unfortunately, I can only
speak to those within the range
of my voice, and even of that
number, only to the few of you
who want to listen, to the lesser
number who already sense the
spirituality of this holy season
and yearn to make something of
it, and to take from it a message
of meaning for life and for living.
Even then, I cannot direct you
or command you or force you
into new channels of Jewish
living. The days of judges and
kings in the household of Israel
are long disappeared. You will
not be told by another anymore,
or forced by any ecclesiastical
You will decide for yourself
and determine for your family
what, if anything, it shall mean
to live Jewishly in the future.
And anyway, I don't want to be
anything more than just your
Rabbi, your teacher, in the
modern sense of one who simply
shares with you his own
thinking, one who prods you
gently toward thinking of
yourself, one who wishes only to
challenge you toward human
response; to the God you
worship, to the faith you would
cherish, and to the piece of life
and transient time you still hold
in your own hands.
My wish then is only that I
may remind you that the
measure of your own faith, like
that of the best of any man's
faith, is the effect your religion
has upon you. It is not and never
has been the mere counting of
the number of daily command-
ments you perform. And if your
religion has no real effect upon
your life, then it has no real
worth either.
But if you say you care, and if
you 'want to know the formula
for Jewish living that really
matters, then this is it: Learn to
live well, learn to live fully.
Learn to live morally, sen-
sitively, selflessly, actively and

ment; in the pursuit of justice
and righteousness for all men.
in the preservation of the world's
resources for the children of to-
morrow, in the effort to leave
this earth somewhat better off
and improved than when you
entered upon it.
This alone is religious ad-
vancement, and it is much more
profound than any superficial
return to quixotic ceremonial,
ritual and oldfashioned social
regimen of diet or dress.
Remember, when God spoke
to Abraham the great dictate of
life's faith four thousand years
ago. he said but two words: Ve-
hi-yei bi-ra-cha, be thou a
blessing." This was, and has
ever remained, the noblest
expression of the universal ideal
of your own precious Judaism.
Be thou a blessing unto all
But the full formula for Jewish
living is more than just the
universal ideal. Judaism is
universal, but it is also par-
ticular. There is also the in-
escapable additional aspect o'
particularism. We are still Am
Segula, a special, peculiar,
chosen people. We have a
singular history and a common
fate and destiny, suffered,
shared and paralleled by none
else on earth. And so we also
have unique and added re-
sponsibilities; to the Jewish
people, to their particular needs
and benefits, to Jewish
education and fraternal weal, to
the Jewish homeland, its up-
building and defense, to Jewish
culture; music, art and
literature, to the endless in-
stitutions of Jewish benevolence
and care.
We have a lifetime full of
avocations and concerns, for all
who wish to learn how to live
Jewishly, for all who want to
determine whether their Judaism
really has any effect upon their
own lives.
The New Year for us is forever
the time of spiritual inventory
and stock-taking, the time for
coming to grips with the
meaning of Jewish identity and
Jewish living and, indeed, of
Judaism itself.
In this modern world of
freedom, and often of license,
ultimately the answers will be of
your own choosing and decision.
I can ask no more, than that you
freely take these words of mine,
as a starting point for your own
renewed thinking. I can only
hope you will realize at last, that
from the glorious perspective of
eternal Jewish genius, religion
really means: "The personal
struggle against moral
mediocrity within yourself."
That is my definition of effective
faith. "The personal struggle

Mr. Ball complains in his Aug.
24 letter to me that statements
in the July 9 article "do not hilly
state my position." He cites, for
example, alleged inaccuracies in
the article pertaining to his
position on Jerusalem which
ignores "the Jordanian Army's
seizure of the Old City in 1948
. although by UN decision
Jerusalem was to have been
internationalized, while the
Israeli liberation of the Old City
in 1967 was an aggression that
had to be undone."
Not so, argues Mr. Ball in his
letter, who insists on the con-
trary that "the issue of Old
Jerusalem should be settled by
some' form of international
arrangement for which a number
of formulas have been devised."
Certainly, this is not a
rebuttal calculated to appease
the fears of anyone ardently
interested in Israel's survival
no', indeed, calculated to answer
the questions one may be en-
tertaining in one's mind as a
consequence of the unhappy
rwlity that Mr. Ball is a Jimmy
Carter adviser on foreign affairs.
It is, in fact, precisely the
position the July 9 article at-
tributed to him.

disturbs Mr. Ball so and what

arrangement" he may be
prepping Jimmy Carter on at the

his commitment to Israel, and
Israel has served notice to the
world that Jerusalem shall never

efficient that the Republicans
themselves have turned to
private industry' to deliver their
campaign mail. President Ford
has been using the United Parcel
Service, a private company, to
deliver his campaign mailings.
The President's campaign
material was held up by a strike
at United Parcel. Tons of
material are stacked up in the
back rooms of Ford head-
Yet the Republicans still
wouldn't rely on the Postal
Service to deliver the campaign
mailings. When United Parcel
was struck, they arranged to
move most of it by bus.
Is it a Carter commitment to
the survival of Israel as, say, the
infamous Rogers Plan proposed
Israel's survival during the
Nixon years?
The issue of Jerusalem apart,
the main purpose of Mr. Ball's
Aug. 24 letter was an "in all
fairness" request for the right to
reply, which appeared three days
later in the Aug. 27 edition of
The Jewish Floridian.
THE REPLY no more ap-
peases my fears than did his
latter to me itself. Referring to
M. Raymond Aron's "logic of
numbers." Mr. Ball reminds us
that "3.5 million Jews confront
something in the neighborhood
"f 100 million Arabs" in the
Middle Fast.
Furthermore, "the oil revenues
available to the Arab nations for
the purchase of arms are ex-
panding at a fantastic rate."
This means, argues Mr. Ball,
that "if Israel continues to give
the impression that it resists
serious settlement efforts." the
American people will not
"provide her indefinitely with
military and economic aid at
something approximating 1976
levels (which means roughly
$700 for every man. woman and
child in Israeli"
Nor. says Mr. Ball, would
Israel be able to avoid blame in
the eyes of the American people
"for renewed war and the oil
embargo that would inevitably
THESE observations are what
I would call the diplomacy of
threat tricked out in the kind of
humanism such as must come
easily to Mr. Ball in his current
prolessional affiliation with the
Jewish firm of Lehman Brothers,
one of whose late members. Sen.
Herbert Lehman, would un-
doubtedly feel as uncomfortable
with them as anyone else con-
cerned with the safety of Jews
and the Jewish State
They not only raise the specter
of Moslem genocide. They are
also designed (1) to coerce Israeli
submission to the blackmailing
proposition that America's short
fuse attached to its passion for
that fast-disappearing creature
comfort, the monster auto-
mobile, is about to explode; and
(2) to encourage the spurious
notion that the international
energy crisis is entirely the fault
of Israel.
Furthermore, these ob-
servations are at absolute
variance with Gov. Carter's
stated campaign positions
particularly the possibility of
another oil embargo, which the
Governor said, during the second
presidential debate, he would
((insider "an economic act of
war" and against which he
would retaliate, if the Arabs
launched a second such round, in
total kind, not just food, but in
all manner of exports to the
Arab world.
IS THIS just Carter campaign
rhetoric to be supplanted by Mr.
Hall's diplomacy of threat should
Carter be elected'.'
What is Mr. Balls solution in
the Middle East as defined by
his Aug. 27 reply in this
newspaper? It is as follows:
A settlement "must involve
the withdrawal by Israel to sub-
stantially the borders existing
prior to the 1967 War. subject to
such minor boundary rec-
tifications as might be achieved
through negotiation" pre-
cisely what the July 9 Bienstock
column opined of him and which
Mr. Ball wrote to me misrep-
resented his real views;
0 The conviction that "the
longer the delay in coming to
grips with the fundamental
substantive problems prin-
cipally the Palestinian issue, the
Golan Heights and Jerusalem
the more perilous Israel's
position will become the
longer those problems are per-
mitted to fester, the greater will

relatively moderate Arab leaders
by more radical leadership ."
THESE ARE heady state-
ments, but like his reference to
Jerusalem, they pose more
questions than they answer.
What are "minor boundary
rectifications"? What is "the
Palestinian issue"? Which of the
"moderate" Arab leaders does he
mean Sadat, who only last
week threatened renewed war
against Israel after the American
presidential elections: Assad,
who would march on Tel Aviv
tomorrow if he could; Qaddafi,
who would set the whole of the
Middle Fast on fire?

interested in Mr. Ball's argu-
ments. 1 have heard them a

I am only interested in Gov.
Carter's feelings about George
Ball. Is this his trusted adviser
on Middle Eastern affairs? Is it a
likelihood that Mr. Ball will
indeed be a frontrunner for
secretary of state?
WRITING OF President Ford
and his "victory" in the first
debate. I said that "he is a mere
puppet for a juggernaut" and
that his answers to questions
"would be meaningless anyway."
Ford's failure to rectify his
monumental gaffe on the
question of Soviet domination of
Eastern Europe immediately as
he made it demonstrates the
principle. Ford as automaton is
not the President now, nor would
he be the President if reelected.
and so questions asked of him
are an irrelevancy.
But Gov. Carter is another
matter. During the second
debate, he declined to list
members of his Cabinet if he
were elected, but there Is no
doubt that George Ball sits tall
in the saddle among them. And
so does Patrick Caddell as at
least some sort of high
presidential aide.

Shlff Running
for State Senate
Michael Alan Shiff, charter
member of West Broward

B'rith. is the Democratic can-
didate for State Senate District
An architect and land planner.
Shiff said he will work for
stronger protection for the

family homeowner.
Shiff also says he is against
any new state taxes until South
Florida gets its fair share of
existing taxes.
He has introduced a three- '
point program designed to lower
automobile insurance costs by
cracking down on uninsured
motorists. The candidate noted
newspaper reports that state 30
percent of our state's motorists
are uninsured. "This contributes
greatly to our high cost of auto-
mobile insurance because there is
up to 30 percent less money
available to pay claims," he said.

planning firm, Shiff is a planning
consultant to two South Florida
cities. He is a member of

Walker, Paul Sanasardo, the
first Harkness Ballet Company,
the Joffrey Ballet Company and

consistent 28-year record of support
for Israel. You know where 1 stand."
"The funds I proposed for Israel in
my first two budgets totaled over $4
billion for 27 months. These figures
speak more eloquently than words."
Soviet Jewry
"I will continue to seek further
progress on the issue of emigration
from the Soviet Union. I raised it
personally with General Secretary
Brezhnev. I have discussed it on
many occasions with my former
colleagues in the House and in the
Senate with the determination to
restore the prior rate of emigration."
Zionism and the UN
"I tell you now that we will fight any
measure that condemns Zionism as
racism or that attempts to deny Israel
her full rights of membership in the
United Nations."
"A free people must never capitulate
to terrorism.. .Certainty of
punishment prevents crime. I very
strongly urge international action to
stamp out terrorism wherever it may
