The Women's Division of the Jewish Federation in
cooperation with Burdines Department Store in West
Palm Beach is planning "an unprecedented social

Jeanne Levy, president of Women's Division stated
that the event titled "The Miracle That is You "will be

that this will be a success," Mrs. Levy said.

CRC Update
Community Relations Council
Jewish Federation of
Palm FUach County
Question: Why does Israel
reject proposals for a bi-national
Arab-Jewish state?
Answer: Israelis point out that
earlier proposals for a bi-national
state had long been rejected as
unrealistic by most neutral
observers, and that this was why
the UN Partition Plan envisioned
separate Arab and Jewish states
in Palestine. (The bulk of the
territory allocated for an Arab
state was seized by Transjordan
and Egypt in 1948.) They also
point out that there are 20 in-
dependent Arab states already in
existence most of them
Moslem by law and tradition
and that Palestinian Arabs
constitute two-thirds of the
population of Jordan and hold
key positions in its government.
The experience of European
Jewry during the Nazi era, they
add, when no Western nation was
willing to open its doors to rescue
the victims of Hitler's "final
solution," underscores the im-
portance of having one nation in
the world that is clearly and un-
equivocally a Jewish state.
"Of course we are a pluralistic
society, not homogeneous,"
former Foreign Minister Abba
Eban has stated. "There is a
Moslem population and a
Christian population. We want
Day School Director Selig
Greets Reform Educators
Dr. Sidney Selig, president of
the Jewish Educators Council of
Florida, welcomed the leaders of
the Reform Movement in Jewish
Education who assembled in
West Palm Beach.
The National Association of
Temple Educators (educators
professionally associated with
Reform Judaism) met in their
annual conference at the
Sheraton Inn in West Palm
Dr. Selig stressed the con-
tribution made by the Reform
Jewish educators to the improve-
ment of Jewish knowledge and
learning practices in the Reform
Temples throughout the United
States and Canada. He also pro-
vided some of the delegates with
a tour to places of Jewish interest
in the Palm Beaches and con-
cluded the visit with a special
welcome at the Jewish Com-
munity Day School of Palm
Beach County.
Selig explained the curriculum
of the Day School which repre-
sents a community approach to
Jewish education.
"This approach," declared
Selig, "is now being adopted by
several other Jewish com-
munities in Florida and elsewhere
as a model for a non-denomina-
tional concept of a Jewish Feder-
ation supported Jewish Com-
munity Day School.
"Children from Reform, Ortho-
dox, and Conservative Jewish
homes find satisfaction in an
educational program of ex-
cellence in general studies
coupled with a warm successful
course of learning of Jewish
identification which promotes
their own idelogy while providing
respect and sympathetic under-
standing of other Jewish and
Christian denominations."
The Jewish Community Day
School of Palm Beach was con-
gratulated by Dr. James J.
Levbarg, past president of
NATE for its "innovative" cur
riculum which synthesized its
Hebraic, Judaic and general
studies areas for "an important
contribution to the Jewish Edu-
cational field throughout the
the Arabs to keep their language,
culture and pride. We want the
Christians to keep their identity.
The basic aim of the State of
Israel is to have one independent
state which expresses the
Jewish culture, tradition and
Question: Is the U.S. risking a
big-power confrontation if Israel
and the Arabs go to war again?
Answer: As long as it remains
clear that the United States will
continue to support Israel if she
is attacked by her Arab neigh-
bors, such a confrontation is
unlikely. Indeed, clear American
support is likely to make the
Soviet Union more interested in a
peaceful solution to Mideast
problems and less inclined to egg
the Arab nations on to new
military adventures against
Since World War II there has
been ample evidence that con-
flicts are more likely to erupt
where United States commit-
ments are vague and undefined
as in Korea and the Com-
munist world may misjudge what
America's response to
provocation would be.
Wherever the United States
commitment has been firm and
unequivocal as in Berlin,
Greece, Iran, Cuba and, most
recently, the Egyptian-Syrian
attack on Israel in 1973 the
Soviet Union has been careful to
avoid direct military con-
frontation with the United
On the other hand, if a big-
power clash develops for other
reasons, and the Soviet Union
attempts to deprive Western
Europe and Japan of vital oil
supplies, Israel can be counted on
to give the United States access
to strategic locations from the
Suez Canal to the Indian Ocean.
And the big powers know it.

The Jewish Floridian of Palm Beach County
A Publisher Passes
We note with sadness the passing of our colleague >
Adolph Rosenberg, publisher of the Southern Israelite o.
We will always remember Mr. Rosenberg as a dedicated I
journalist, whose career was launched with stints at the old
Atlanta Constitution and Atlanta Journal j and whc
devoted the last 37 years of his life to making his own news
paper a publication of which the community it served could
well be proud.
Mr. Rosenberg took on the duties as publisher of ar
English-Jewish newspaper when the professional rewards it
appeared to offer seemed less significant to the untrained
eye than might have been the case were he to remain with
the daily press.
But Mr. Rosenberg was a man with uncommon vision ,
and an uncommon sense of his need to serve the Jewish J
community, and this he did uncommonly well. He was a
part of that generation of Jewish journalists who saw the
English Jewish press as it began to emerge into a vital
He had a powerful sense of things Jewish, and his
journalistic aim became to share that sense with his
Not only will Atlanta miss him. The English Jewish
press in Atlanta and the Jewish community it serves will
miss him, as well.
A Yiddish Festival
A Yiddish Cultural Festival Week begins Saturday and
runs through Feb. 12. The observance is part of a week-long
showcase featuring the history of the Yiddish language,
literature, theater and music.
This is an important event.
The death of the European Jewish community in the
wake of the Nazi Holocaust seemed to spell doom for the
language that had welded together a people and their
culture for some 500 years.
In Israel in the State's formative years, Yiddish was a
language held in contempt. It was viewed as the language
of those who submitted and succumbed without struggle. It
was a language to be expunged from the consciousness of
the remainder of the Jewish people.
But the fact remains that Yiddish was and is a vital
language serving as the basis for a vital culture.
Particularly with the coming of the Haskala, Judaism's
own renaissance in Europe, there arose a vital literature and
theater documenting the diaspora and featuring such
stellar names as Ansky, Dinesen, Peretz, Aleichem, Jacob
Singer and, in our own day, the energetic and peripatetic
I. B. Singer who is now living in our community here, and
who will open the Yiddish I Cultural Festival observance
Saturday night at the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Com-
munity Center.
It did not take long for Israel to see the error of its hasty
judgment. Fortunately for us, such important writers as
Mr. Singer, Itzhak Manger and Chaim Grade never did
share it. Nor have the many universities across the nation
that have come to see the vitality of the Yiddish language
and its literature and to make them a cornerstone of im-
portant study courses.
We salute Yiddish Cultural Festival Week and recom-
mend that the community take a serious part in it.
ORT on Agenda
When American ORT met in New York for its 56th
National Conference, its delegates were confronted with the
report that its roster has increased in eight years by over 30
percent, from 57,200 students in 1969 to an estimated
75,000 in 1977.
There has bean a steady growth, year by year, in the
demands made on the organization dedicated to the
education and training of Jewish youth for successful
adjustment in Israel and other communities. I
As Harold Friedman, ORT president, said: "This is a
continuing and growing reality, one that will expand rather
than lessen with each passing year. We must continually
tailor our program to meet the needs of Israel's economy
and the skilled manpower to run it." 1

I KEEP wanting to write
about Alex Haley's "Roots"
to say something smart and
natty about the panoramic rise of
Haley's family from humble
African beginnings to a 12-hour
television series that has caught
and heated up the nation's
imagination for better or worse.
depending upon whom you talk
So far, all I can dredge up are
two words, polarize and
galvanize, with just a pinch of
collective guilt thrown in for good
And a prayer that none of
these emerges as a possibility
from the first massive occurrence
of inverted Tofflerian culture
shock to hit the U.S. since H. L.
Mencken last groused about his
pet peeves in Baltimore back in
the "20s and '30s.
THE PRAYER I offer up is
that it neither divides the nation
further nor serves as a martial
call to Blacks for action against
racial injustices that may seem to
them to be occurring right at this
moment, which is to say that
some so inclined do not appear to
be able to distinguish between
history and current events.
In this sense, the avid
followers of the Haley epic are
little different from the avid
followers of Mencken, for they
couldn't distinguish between
history and current events either,
and so in the "Roots" brouhaha
the danger is that the thinkers,
the latter-day Menckenites, are
little different from the potential
reactors, those with the capacity
to be polarized or galvanised,
depending upon which side of the
tracks they were born.
I MEAN by this that the
thinkers, now a generation or two
away from Mencken's exquisitely
educated, witty, waspish,
Establishment anti-Semitism,
suddenly seem ripe to do an
about-face and pour the sackcloth
and ashes of "Roots" down upon
their heads, whispering a
thousand mea culpa's or
chatasi's, as the case may be, for
anti-Semite though Mencken
was, he counted some of the best
Jews among his crowd. (When is
a Jew capable of spurning the
opportunity to demonstrate his
intellectual elitist status, even if
it means to do so in the bosom of
his enemies?)
What might such a massive
willingness to feel guilt for the
sins of previous centuries of
American experience bring
notice, I said centuries, which
ought to stop in their tracks the
odious plans of some among us
with the intention to cry: why,
what about the collective guilt
Jews have been attempting to
force upon Germany for the
actions of the Nazis?
From the moment they were
defeated in battle, the German
butchers claimed their innocence,
in fact ignorance of their own
sins, no less than of the sins of
their Nazi leaders.
BUT THE hysterical reaction
of so many Americans to the
Haley work is not a hysterical
reaction to cognition of their own
evil, but of the evil of centuries in
the past.
And so it would be absurd to
argue for collective guilt in this
case in the sense that the evil still
exists and that, therefore, the
feeling of guilt is valid Absurd
unless, of course, we are intent on
wallowing in a snakepit of
national masochism or, like
infants, to heap handsful of
excrement upon ourselves in a
voyage toward self-discovery.
For, if I understand the
message of "Roots" correctly, it
is not an indictment of current
American racial bigotry, but of
American brutality toward
Blacks in the era of their enslave-
ment. These are two very dif-
ferent things, although I affirm
the principle that there is an
obvious relation between the two.
THEN, to return to the
question, what might an
American willingness to feel guilt
for the sins of previous centuries
of American experience bring?
The answer would be spec-
ulstive at best. My own suspicion
is that it would bring the polar-
izing and galvanizing of national
sentiment, again depending upon
which side of the track one were
born, that I spoke of here at the
Mainly, such a crude response
would be its own best excuse for
inaction, for a refusal to deal with
the racial inequities still plaguing
us today, and which can be legiti-
mately linked to our past history.
EVEN IN Germany and
Austria, where collective guilt
could be construed as a
legitimate aim, the result has
been to make anti-Semitic

As you recall, I spent period of tine speaking with you, Mr, Levine,
and sensing the excitement of th" Board Meeting held that evening.
Outside of the facilities, which had to serve a aultl functional and
aultl purpose use, I found the agency t b vibrant, exciting and
servlc- oriented. Any new developing Institute has concerns and
Issues which it aust deal with. I found the Center'! staff dedicated
and the Center organisational structure focuaed. lb- individuals
that I spent so tlae with gave evidence of high professional standards,
were directed towards involving the Jewish oamunlty; and had a perspective
about the needs of the service delivery coaponent In the c-asunlty. In
essence, I found an excitement about the endeavor that was undertaken
with professional coapetence being evidenced. One of the hallmarks of
an agency la it's Involvement not only with community residents but
in the democratic participation of Board, executive, and membership,
fli-re was excellent demonstrated evidence of this.
there would be other positive coamente that I could make,however that

would be prepared to meet with you or a Board Committee to further dis-

Rabin put "the main blame" of
the Lebanese war on the "ex-
tremist Palestinians," adding
"They have not lost because the
Arab world still needs them. It
has been using them as a political
football for 40 years and won't
stop now."
DESPITE Lebanon and other
frictions in the Arab world, Rabin
"would not advise anyone to
predict the outlook for peace. A
change in the Arab attitude
toward Israel will definitely take
a long time."
Asked whether he was satisfied
with the U.S. aid Israel receives,
Rabin said that "We deserve the
aid we get because Egypt and
Syria could not maintain their
military strength without
enormous aid from the Soviets
and the Arab oil states.
"We want to maintain a
military strength that allows
Israel to defend itself by itself. I
think it is agreed in the U.S. that
Israel's military strength is
needed to make sure diplomatic
progress can be achieved."

"Synagogue Sues for Their Dues" and a
little shudder over grammar my major
objection is that this usually perceptive writer
on human interest subjects was swimming in
waters far over his head.
As one who has written extensively on the
question of synagogue finances, delivered
papers to learned groups and been inter-
viewed on a number of occasions by both
daily newspapers, I could have told W hi ted to
file in his wastebasket what obviously was a
complaint to him from someone who was
IF IT seemed to be a good story that a
synagogue had sued an individual for non-
payment of dues, it surely would have been
handled better by the religion editor who, I
know, is familiar with the old tale that

Torah ritual at Temple Or Olom.
After which, statistically, he
would have stopped his Jewish
education and his parents ended

I could give him a
example of that from a Miami
News story of five years ago
concerning another victim of
synagogue oppression the man
who had to take his Bar Mitzvah
to another synagogue because it
had refused to let the ritual take
place unless he paid up the $500
owing the synagogue. Righteous
indignation all around.
THE KEY to that story was
the writer's unvarnished state-
ment that "Bar Mitzvah recep-
tions are a religious traction."

plication in his column that what

other charges for direct services
FOR INSTANCE, there was a
wedding involved, according to
the story. There also, if one reads
closely, are two years of dues
involved, not just one. The total
figure of $235 might not then
seem so outrageous, even
granting the bad times which are
related by the sued couple as
having to choose between paying
the synagogue or the mortgage.
I have been, to put it in my
usually modest manner, a public
crusader for synagogue dues
policies which recognize that
many people cannot meet the
rigidly high dues of many of our
congregations. Adon Taft, the
Herald's religion editor, once
quoted me as believing that those
with incomes around $10,000 a
year or less should not be asked
to contribute more than 1 per-
cent, and those between that base
and $20,000 should feel no strain
at 1.5 percent.
Among the favorable letters
was one which disputed the idea
that "a retiree" could afford the 1
percent on a $10,000 income
$100 a year to support the syna-
gogue of his choice. It gives one
an idea of the priorities our
people choose.
AS A synagogue admin-
istrator, I would not favor the
course of action taken by Beth
David to recover what it feels is
rightfully due it. Not only is the
publicity injurious which is
really no matter if one is right

"fair share" policy which is a

Trifa has been charged by the
U.S. Department of Justice and
the U.S. Immigration and
Naturalization Service (INS)
with having lied about his
membership in the Iron Guard
when he applied for U.S. citizen-

IT WAS reported by the
Detroit Jewish News in Michigan
that Trifa gave a deposition in

The deposition, which had been

Question: Why do religious

Answer: Three reasons are
offered for this practice. The first
reason is that during the course
of the meal the hands may have

become soiled and it is forbidden
to recite prayers or benedictions
with soiled hands.
The source for such a
requirement is the consideration
that the table is likened unto the
altar of the Almighty. The
humans at the table are likened
unto the priests (Kohanim) who
served at the altar in the Temple
of Jerusalem.
The Zohar (Parshas Balak)
goes as far as to say that one who
offers benedictions with soiled
hands may forfeit his life like the
priest of old who entered the
sanctuary without washing his
hands. The washing of the hands
is thus like washing the hands
before prayer and benedictions.

WASHINGTON (JTA) For most diplomats and
their wives at a White House reception last week, it was only a
handshake and a few words from President Carter. But Mrs.
Vivian Dinitz, wife of Israeli Ambassador Simcha Dinitz, got a the salt (or brine) of Sodom may
have collected on the hands
during the meal and may injure
one's eyes were he to brush his
eyes with those hands (Rabbi
Jonah, Berakoth 88a)
This reason is regarded as a
health precaution and is regarded
by some authorities as more
severe than a ritualistic
kiss from the nation's chief executive.
"I told the President we would pray for him," Ambassador
Dinitz said. "I am so proud he kissed my wife." The Israeli
envoy told reporters afterwards that he and Carter were old
friends and recalled spending a weekend in 1973 in Carter's
mansion in Georgia when Carter was governor.
The reception Saturday was the President's first for
diplomats and part of a series of receptions he has been holding
since his inauguration.
"I don't believe that there is a better way
to express your feelings than to actually go
to Israel... .There is something special about
the Holy Land... .Those who go, come back
entirely different. They see something that
no words can describe."
So spoke Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister
of Israel, at the beginning of this Solidarity
Pilgrimage Year. Yet, what Rabin said is an
echo of what every person has felt who has
ever visited Israel. You know this.
If you don't you'll learn it at Pesach, when,
sitting at the Seder in Israel, every symbol
of this festival of freedom will take on
richness that almost aches.
You'll know the feeling when you join the
crowd and dance through the streets on
Purim or Independence Day.
You'll feel it on Shavuot, as the First
Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel
Fruits are paraded through the kibbutz
with so much bursting pride. And at the
Western Wall, where the ancient chanting
through the night seems to make centuries
melt away.
You'll know what "no words can de-
scribe" when you walk through the streets
of Israel at Sukkot, and find yourself sur-
rounded by beautiful Sukkot booths in
every yard and on every balcony.
You'll feel it at Chanukah, at the candle
lighting ceremony atop Mount Zion.
But you don't need a celebration to share
these experiences. Because every day of
Solidarity Year is a celebration of your
partnership with Israel.
And once you go and feel these things for
the first time, as many times as you return
will never be enough.

Israel's Problem of 'Up, Down and Out'
By Rabbi Irving B. Cohen
Temple Israel. West Palm Beach
The State of Israel has endless
problems of terror, war, economic
recession and I guess, almost
everything else imaginable. On
the one hand we speak of the
miracle of Israel; its birth, its
growth, its unparalleled advance-
ment. Nothing like it has ever
developed through all the history
of the world, in so short a span of
Where else was a desert ever
turned into garden, rock and
mountainside into blooming
forest, peasant village into uni-
versity community, all in a
handful of years?
A modern civilization hewn out
of a biblical preserve, utterly
fantastic. And yet at the same
time, we know we have also
created a wondrous dream that
has turned into a threatening
nightmare; a, haven of refuge that
knows no peace, a beehive of
modern productivity that suffers
the constant stings of unbearable
taxation, ruinous inflation and
recurrent depression.
It is a manic-depressive
societal phenomenon of great
highs and horrendous lows, mag-
nificent good and unbearable evil.
It is another confounding
example of the eternal enigma
that is the Jew himself and of the
endless reflection of contrast that
is all of Jewish life.
The only thing that keeps our
Jewish people going is a certain
brashness of spirit, and a
knowledge that there really is no
choice, plus an inherited brand of
incurable optimism that has
always tainted Jews with a touch
of idiocy, despite their undeniable
intelligence and intellect.
How else could the tiniest
people on earth be the only
identifiable cultural religious -
autonomy to have a continued
existence fo* over four thousand
years? -
How elaoTaccount for a group
that all the* world hates without
end, even while knowing it could
hardly exis^ without us.
So optimists we are and will be,
for better or.for worse. And in our
hearts we continue to hold that
Judaism will not die and the
Jewish people will not disappear
and the State of Israel will not be
erased f roro.the stage of history.
But that, is no reason to
minimize oqf very real problems;

time lowf*; that increasing

that is what is
happening t$ those who think
that just because Israel always

I har so many Jews say now a
days, and not perhaps without
some degree of logic. "Whoever
bawd of the conquerors and the
victors a-ivina- back land to the
to dictate the peace terms?"
Well, as a matter of fact, that
is almost precisely what the
United States has always done,
at least in recent history. How
else did our fiercest enemies.
Germany and Japan, become our
closest allies?
Because we took nothing from
them, because we gave them back
everything and more, and
because we built them up anew
again besides. And it's not going
to be any different with Israel
either in the long run.
I'm not sure whether real peace
can be achieved in the Mideast in
the near future. I believe it can.
But at least I' m sure that there is
no way this can happen, without
a return of virtually all the oc-
cupied Arab lands and a reversal
of the intrusion of Jewish settlers
and settlements in those Arab '
In the long sweep of history,
there is almost no way three
million Jews can win out over a
hundred million Arabs. Any
single loss for Israel would be the
end, and each repeated victory is
still a defeat, in terms of the
dead, and the wounded and all
the horrible economic ruination.
The only answer to the sur-
vival of the Jewish State is
genuine peace, total recognition,
and mutual trade treaties with
her neighbors, and no price is too
high to pay for this. Neither
strategic boundaries nor
strategic arms will ever be the
guarantors of peace. Only human
understanding can count in the
long run.
And furthermore, what may
seem sensible at first glance
today may be utterly self-
defeating and ruinous tomorrow.
This seems quite likely to be the
case in all the arguments shout
holding on to Arab territory.
Arab territory in the hands of
Israel can only be a curse and
never a blessing, once you realize
that the underlying problem with
which Israel seems totally unable
to cope is that of her own
population; the problem of "Up,
Down and Out." The real
problem of the State of Israel is
people, the sheer number of Jews
in relation to Arabs, not only
beyond the borders but within
the boundaries of the state as
It's a simple fact. Arabs have
much larger families than Jews
and they will inevitably out-
number any native number of
Jews. In time, therefore, they
must threaten the very nature
and structure of the whole
country. What will happen to the
Jewish ethos and flavor and
character and influence and inde-
pendence, once the Arab minority
matches and then outnumbers
the Jews themselves?
And if this is true, and
threatening within the narrowest
confines of the 1948 borders, then
how much more impossible would
be the situation were Israel to
hold on to any of the occupied
territories where Arabs already
outnumber them by the hundreds
of thousands? It would be s
totally absurd situation that
would either destroy Jewish
independence altogether, or else

Land itself is no guarantor of
pases and the real problem is
Now the only answer to the
problem of people is to tncrssse
the Jewiah pnpulatfoa of the
State, and this is what they have
been trying to do for thirty years.
Indeed, I suppose that more than
a million and a half immigrants
have been welcomed into Israel
from every corner of the globe
during that period of time. The
doors are open even now to all
who flee persecution, and the
propaganda wheels turn night
and day to encourage anyone who
is free, to make voluntary aliyah.
This aliyah or migration into
Israel is called "going up" to the
land, but its time cf mass move
ment seems to be drawing to an
end. We are running out of
African and European Jews to
save from persecution, and the
voluntary movement from
America and other free countries
has dwindled to a trickle. Not too
many want to give up the
wonders of America for the
pioneer hardships of the young
State. And the keen minded are
growing increasingly aware that
the last remaining attraction of
Israel idealism, the Kibbutzim, is
being overshadowed by the
darkened clouds of scandal,
crime, bureaucracy and many
other social blights in the rest of
the country, that make aliyah
something less than attractive.
Now the last hope for mass
numbers of newcomers is ob-
viously Russia, but it is perfectly
clear that her doors of exodus
cannot be easily held open The
overall result is that immigration
to Israel that totaled 54,000 in
1973 shrank to 32,000 in 1974 and
dwindled even further to a mere
20,000 in 1975. But even this does
not give the true picture, until we
take into account the "down"
and the "out," which now tend to
negate the whole process of "up."
"Down" refers to those Jews,
native born and recent im-
migrant, who emigrate and leave
Israel voluntarily and for their
own reasons. Nobody talks about
this negative activity too much,
but every American Jewish com-
munity has a number of ex-
Israelis living in it. And the truth
is that this silent number of those
who leave has grown large
enough to virtually equal the
entire immigration rate.
The "down" about matches the
"up" and the net result is vir-
tually no immigration or
population increase at all.
And on top of all this, we still
must contend with the "outs,"
which have finally become a
headline issue. The "outs" are
the ever increasing number of
Russian Jews who secured exit
visas for Israel, but who simply
change their minds by the time
they get to Vienna, preferring to
go to Canada or America or any-
where but Israel.
There has been a terrible in-
ternational row as to whether the
Joint Distribution Committee or
the HIAS should continue to aid
these refugees once they change
their minds. Of course they
should, I believe
Certainly we must continue to
do everything possible to get
Jews out of Russia, no matter
where they finally decide to
settle. Ws saved Jews from the
Czar, no questions asked, a
hundred years ago, no questions
asked. We shall also save Jews
from the Communists today, no
tmatter where they want to go.
i Nevertheless, the sod result
remains, that the potential for
immigration into Israel is
reduced that much more every
time s Russian Jew changes his
mind and, therefore, in reality
tbar* is no present bops or
oroepect at all for any meaningful
^pulation mere see in Israel in
the foreseeable future.
Thus it ought to become quite
clear to everyone that the basic
and continuing problem for Israel
is "Up, Down and Out," the
problem of people, not of land.
Nothing is likely to ever reverse
the declining population ten-
dency, except genuine peace, a
renaissance of prosperity, and s
rebirth of national idealism
strong enough to pervade the
entire State. Only this threefold
accomplishment will ever make
Israel truly attractive again as
the first choice, of the innocent,
the hopeful or even the down-
trodden. The time has a

Talk to MeNot
To Politicians,
-Rabin to Sadat
Premier Yitzhak Rabin has made
a personal appeal to President
Anwar Sadat for direct peace
talks with Israel.
"I have heard what you have
had to say to others," he told
Sadat, speaking at a closing
dinner at the Knesset of the
World Union for Progressive
Judaism Jubilee Conference.
"Now, what do you have to say
Turning to a second person
form of speech, Rabin said to
Sadat: "You have explained your
willingness to make peace with
American senators, congressmen
and other visitors, you have
talked about peace with NBC,
CBS, and ABC. If you are serious
about peace, let us negotiate.
Please, let me hear from you."
LZA Resolves
To Remember
The Labor Zionist Alliance of
Century Village, West Palm
Beach, recently passed a
resolution to erect a monument to
the French crew and hostages of
Entebbe, to be placed in an
Israeli airport, funded from
worldwide gifts.
It was also suggested that a
worldwide contest be held for the
monument's design and another
contest for the best thematic
expression of the event.
Esther and Joseph Molat said
that "the project will capture the
imagination of young and old of
all denominations."
Suggestions for beginning the
project are welcomed by LZA
President Sidney Falik of
Century Village Canterbury,
and Committee Chairman Molat
of Century Village Stratford.
Women's Division of Jewish
Federation, the Girl Scouts, PTA
Board, and the Community
Recreation Advisory Board.
Involved in activities of the
Men's Club of Temple Beth El,
Mr. Lang was honored as "Man
of the Year." He has also received
the President's Award. He has
served as secretary, vice
president, board member and a
member of the Executive Com-
mittee. He has served with the
Youth, Membership, Finance,
Nominating and Blood Bank
Committees. He is a past
president of Little League and
works with community youth
activities and the Boy Scouts.

The tremendous I commercial
success of Haley's work will
surely motivate other Haleys,
and so this aesthetic distance is
of particular importance for us to
achieve, particularly because
imitators may not be as success-
ful as Haley meaning that
imitators may come up with less
myth than Haley has and call for
more muscle instead.
We must achieve it, or we may
all of us, all races and all creeds,
be chopped down all too quickly
to our own roots.

[The Stimulation of Planning:
major byproduct of fund-
ing has been the development
the planning function. A
nic condition of American
i life is the insufficiency of
urces in relation to known
Is. This has compelled the
dopment of a sense of
liorities: of pressure to
ornate programs no longer

jrims more relevant to
miling needs; in a word,
Sense of Community:
has only to work in a
_ ation campaign to un-
Bland how it creates a sense of
union purpose and action. The
sphere is one of tension and
nlement, of doing something
ant, of being related to

|ning out basic religious
dates of righteousness,

Other Source* of Income
In addition to the general
campaign for overseas, national
and local needs, Federations also
sponsor other types of fund-
raising. These are:
Endowment Fonda: Most of
the larger Federations are
developing substantial en-
dowment funds which meet
ongoing and special needs,
provide insurance against fiscal '
crisis and emergencies, and make
possible greater innovations and
change. A variety of techniques
are used to obtain these funds,
such as "letters of intent" and
legacies and bequests for general
or special purposes. These funds
nowtotal more than $100 million.
Capital Funds: Since
Federations began, they have
conducted special campaigns for
buildings. Hundreds of millions
of dollars have been raised for
community centers, hospitals,
homes for the aged, Federation
headquarters, facilities for
agencies, etc. Sometimes capital
funds are raised by including a
set amount for this purpose in the
general campaign for one or more
income From Operations:
Jewish agencies receive sub-
stantial income from fees,
memberships, limited fund-
raising for special projects,
government grants for research
as well as services. Excluding
hospitals, all fields of local
service had such income in 1970
(other than grants from
Federation and United Funds) of
$228.7 million. Jewish hospital
income from these sources
totaled $688.2 million.
Special Projects: Federations
often obtain grants from in-
terested individuals or foun-
dations for special projects, such
as research and studies, ex-
perimental programs, service
demonstrations, etc.
Local And National Budgeting
Federation functions as
trustees for Jewish communal
funds. It is their responsibility to
ensure that these funds are used
for the approved purposes, that
efficiency and economy prevail
insofar as this is possible and
that service is rendered in an
appropriate and sound manner.
The budgeting functions operate
in several ways, as follows:
Local Budgeting: Federation
budgeting processes are most
highly developed in relation to
the budgeting of local agencies.
There is intensive scrutiny of
audits, financial statements, and
current and projected programs,
on an annual basis, with certified
annual audits required in most
instances. Detailed monthly
financial statements must be
submitted. There are numerous
policies governing how funds
must'be spent and accounted for.
In most of the larger com-
munities budgeting is closely
related to program planning.
National and Overseas
Budgeting: A responsible
process of analysis and ac-
countability of budgets of
national beneficiary agencies is
maintained with the larger
national agencies through the
Large City Budgeting Con-
A number of years ago the
largest Federation, through the
Council of Jewish Federations
and Welfare Funds, created the
LCBC. This is a budgeting
mechanism administered by the
Council through which
Federation representatives
jointly conduct budget hearings
with major national agencies
There is intensive program and
fiscal analysis, with findings and
reccommendations being sent to
all member Federations for their
consideration and action.
United Funds
In many communities, local
Jewish agencies are beneficiaries
of local United Funds. Jewish
Federations were the forerunners
and models for the creation of
United Funds. When the latter
were created the Jewish agencies
became part of them. In our
community the Federation acts
as the representative of the
agencies, submitting an overall
request and receiving a lump sum
allocation. It then budgets the
agencies as indicated above.
A Federation leader once said,
"It's much harder to spend the
money than to raise it." He was
not trying to be amusing. He was
referring to the fact that
responsible budgeting requires a
special kind of interest and
dedication. Reams of material
have to be studied; there are
endless conferences and
discussions; committees have to
be informed and knowledgeable
in relation to decision requiring
special wisdom and judgment,
since needs of equally valid
programs always exceed
resources. Each budgeting
season is indeed a time which
tries men's souls. (To be continued)

the some custom was followed as indicated in
the Bible (Josiah 2216) where the dead were
deposited in a niche hewn out of rock and

Mausoleum entombment is the modem
development of this very ancient custom.
