Histadrut Conference
The Israel Histadrut Foundation held its 11th annual
conference earlier this month at the Fontainebleau Hotel.
Histadrut touches the lives in one way or another of
some two million Israelis daily, be it through Kupat
Holim, the nation's health service, or the Histadrut
vocational school system, cultural and educational cen-
ters, homes for the aged and children's villages.
This vast network is largely financed through the Israel
Histadrut Foundation by American contribution.
National Chairman Rabbi Leon Kronish has declared
that IHF is "almost irresitible because it reminds every
Jew of his moral obligation to adopt Israel as an extra
beneficiary of his estate."
What our own community's Rabbi Kronish is saying is
that participation in this program helps Israel in its
emergence as a strong nation among the peoples of the
South Florida hopes the conference and its deliberations
went well. They are worthy of all our attention.
Brotherhood Award
Over the past few decades, there has been enormous
progress in human rights in our country.
Somehow, in terms of human rights, we tend to think of
the monolithic power of the federal government and the
rqjo the government plays in equal access >' equal op-
But time was when human rights were neither a
fashionable cause nor of much implemental concern to the
government. Too easily do we forget the tough and at
times sweaty work done in the early days by individuals
and organizations that ultimately made human rights a
noble endeavor and a governmental preoccupation.
One such organization is the National Conference of
Christians and .lews, which recently marked its Silver
Anniversary at a Brotherhood Awards Dinner at the
Fontainebleau Hotel.
We are proud to note the award to William S. Ruben as
the .Jewish recipient of this year's NCCJ Brotherhood
Medallion. He is joined by Bill Colson and Don Shula, who
also received awards for their activity in behalf of the
distinguished principles of NCCJ.
Ruben, president of Jordan Marsh-Florida, has an
enviable record in civic and philanthropic community
affairs, ranging from trustee of the Greater Miami Jewish
Federation to board member of Florida International Uni-
versity and the Greater Miami Philharmonic.
Ruben and the other recipients well represent NCCJ's
noble ideals. No federal regulations can substitute for the
heart and the spirit that men such as these and
organizations such as the NCCJ espouse in the supreme
cause of Brotherhood.
Government Bars Reentry
Of PLO Representative
The government today barred the
reentry into the U.S. of Sabri
Jiryis, an official of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, on
grounds that the PLO is a pro-
scribed group under American
law and because on a previous
occasion, Jiryis had falsified
information in applying for a
U.S. visa.
State Department spokesman
Frederick Z Brown said "We
have decided not to seek waivers
for Jiryis to come to the U.S. to
attend a Quaker conference this
BROWN SAID, "We have
occasionally allowed a PLO
representative or people affiliated
with the PLO to come to the U.S.
but not for political activity. In
the case of Jiryis, if he were to
give a speech at this Quaker
meeting, that would be
reasonably construed as a
political acti\ ity. For that reason
our recommendation was not in
favor of the waiver."
Brown acknowledged, under
questioning, that Secretary of
State Cyrus R. Vance's visit to
the Middle East in pursuit of
progress toward an Arab-Israeli
settlement "is one of the factors
taken into account" in the
government's decision.
While in the U.S. last fall he
met privately with individual
Jews in New York and Washing-
ton before he was ordered to leave
the country by Nov. 30.
Jewish Floridian
Bigotry Against Sephardi Jews
OFFICIAL Spanish circles do
not make much of it, which may
be a sign of their breathtaking
humanitariartism, or else their
need to expiate ancient sins.
Still, they are quietly letting it
be known that when Morocco
stepped up the country's anti-
Semitic policies against its
250,000 Jews to make Libya's
strong man Col. Qaddafi happy,
it issued entry permits to 50,000
Jews who applied for them.
SOME OF these official
Spanish circles are frank to
suggest that the permits were not
humanitarian at all but simply a
way of retaliating against
Qaddafi and the Palestine Liber-
ation Organization which these
days finds in Qaddafi just about
its only ardent public defender
among Arab potentates.
The Spanish trace their recent
problems with terrorism in the
Canary Islands to Qaddafi who,
they surmise, is using PLO forces
as mercenaries to take over the
islands from Spain and establish
a forward base in the Mediter-
ranean against Fortress Europa.
Qaddafi considers the con-
tinent a bastion of "Zionist sym-
pathies'' and, among Arab
leaders, would be unique in
envisioning and financing such a
project. Understood in these
terms, the Spanish strategy is
not a Don Quixote tilting against
windmills. It makes good sense.
STILL, to be perfectly ob-
jective, the willingness to accept
50,000 Jews does not not if
Spain is trying, despite its
troubles with Qaddafi. to
maintain good relations with
other Arabs.
The question of Spain's
motives apart, one is forced to
wonder why so substantial a
numlxT of .lews were ignored by
Israel. To hear Spanish official
circles tell it. the explanation is
not that Israel ignored the Mo-
roccan .Jews at all. What hap-
pened was that many did go to
Hut as in the case of large
numlx-rs of Soviet Jews, the
Moroccans found conditions in
Israel not to their liking.
THEY WERE emigrating for
political and religious, not eco-
nomic reasons. A new life in
Israel solved their victimization
from religious oppression.
But in their view, they paid for
it with the kind of economic
privation they had not antici-
pated or experienced before. In
short, the sharply limited oppor-
tunity to which they could look
forward in Israel made many of
them foolishly wonder why they
had left Morocco in the first
Jewish nationals to quj
sirs hl*?s
In addition, the Moroccans had
to contend with something the
Soviets never dreamed of per-
secution in Israel, in this case,
against Sephardi Jews. When the
news got out, an embarrassing
number of Morocco's Jews opted
for Spain instead.
THIS IS a grim story. One
Spanish official with whom I
spoke documents it with
depressing accuracy.
For me, the question of limited
economic opportunity is not the
issue here. Persecution against
the Sephardi community is. As
early as the mid-1960s, a news-
letter published in Jerusalem by
the Community of Oriental Jews
began to publicize the statistical
data demonstrating the accuracy
of their charges of bigotry
against them.
And only last week, Nessim
Gaon, president of the World
Sephardi Organization, accused
Israel of encouraging and per-
petuating the social and eco-
nomic gap between Ashkenazim,
Jews of European extraction, and
Sephardim, or Middle Eastern
and Oriental Jews.
Sephardi Jews find things so
difficult in Israel that many may
well be tempted to return to the
countries of their origin. There
have been "recent invitations
from Arab governments.'' he
While such invitations ob-
viously do not include any from
madman Qaddafi and his crowd,
other Arab potentates would be
[X'rfectly delighted to welcome
back the Jews they chased with
an eye on the favorable inter-
national public opinion that
would accrue to them that in
the old days automatically went
to Israel and that these days
seems somehow to elude the
Israeli grasp.
Such invitations would
discount if not devastate Israeli
statistics on Arab oppression of
Jewish minorities in their own
lands as "Zionist propaganda."

All of this sounds desperately

West German trader, the OF.C'I)
meeting in Paris last ()ctober was
inspired by U.S. Secretary of
Slate Henry Kissinger last June
when he warned that the fast-
gmwing trade with the Soviet
bloc could be used by Moscow as
a political lever. Yet it was a
Kissinger theory that the United
States should make technology
available to the F.ast Europeans
in order to get the Soviet bloc's
technicians hooked" on it.
At the time. Kiss:nger's game
plan was that the more the
Russians relied on Western
know-how. the less likely the
Kremlin would be to engage in
adventures which would provoke
the U.S. to cut the supply line.
"When the U.S.-Soviet trade
agreement collapsed because of
the freer emigration clause
Washington tried to impose, the
Americans lost $1.6 billion in
business with Moscow. Now they
may be maneuvering a scare to
gain lost ground." says a French

should reach $2 billion." says
Alex Hertzberg, director of the

in Warsaw. Similar successes
were also noted at last month's

Trade fairs in Eastern Europe
are becoming increasingly im-
portant for Western firms. But
there are complaints. Rates for
space at Sokolniki Perk.
Moscow's major exhibition
center, are about the same as in
the West. But charges for
utilities, labor, services and
security make costs uo to four
times higher than for a similar
show in Paris or Frankfurt.
Labor practices would make a
capitalist blush: workmen at
Sokolniki Park, for example, are
paid $!) a day by the government
which charges $30 a day for their
services. "But when you realize
that you may come away with a
major contract on the hook, you
just grin and hand over the
cash.'' says one U.S.
In order to offset payment for
new contracts the Russians,
closely followed by other East
European countries, are con-
centrating on deals based on buy-
back or COinter purchase
IN A buy-Mack deal a Western
firm supplying, for example.

Bulgaria would be obliged to take
part-payment in shoes from the
production line. With counter -
purchases. goods need not
necessarily come from the
production line. Some Western
firms are already heavily com-
mitted to such dealing.
A West German firm manu-
facutring steel piping has eight
employees working on sales of
imported goods.
But such deals can create
problems for the Western busi-
nessman. A French company
which agreed to take part -
payment in shirts found out after
the contract had been signed that
there was a sales outlet
The company they were
dealing with had its own repre-
sentative in the West. There is
concern, too, over "dumping" of
East European goods on the
Western market.
EARLIER THIS year, British
firms complained to the govern-
ment about the flood of East
German suits, retailing at only
$25. And at Bucharest's tradi
fair. Britain's anti-dumpinj
measures this time on poly
ester fibers figured high ii
talks between senior British
government officials and their
Rumanian counterparts.
Whatever the outcome, buy-
back and counter-purchase is
likely to become an increasingly
important part of East-West
trade in the future. As one
American trader put it: "The day
may come when F.ast European
manufacturers will be calculating
on Western computers the
number New Yorkers who are
wearing Russian suits."
Israel Signs Economic Agreement
Israeli Foreign Minister Yigal
Allon asked the Council of
Ministers of the European Eco-
nomic Community (EEC) to
preserve a poUtical balance and
neutrality in its negotiations with
the Arab countries.
Allon, who earlier signed
Israel's financial agreement with
the nine-member states
organization, warned the Council
that the "Euro-Arab dialogue'' is
taking a political turn.

and further maintained
that the French laws of

"correctly" in the case.
Bochet flew to Miami
from New Orleans
voluntarily to meet with
leaders of the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation
Community Relations
Committee and other Jew-
ish organization leaders in
what turned out to be, ac-
cording to Donald Lefton,
chairman of the CRC, not
a new French statement on
the case, but a public re-
lations gesture.
"NOTHING WAS solved."
Lefton said. "The unfortunate
rt was that we came hoping to
ar something other than what
the French government said in
[he past."
Rabbi Sol Landau of Beth
David Congregation also
remarked that the meeting "was
not found satisfactory."
Bochet admitted that the
controversy did cause "some
kind of embarrassment," and
aid he "would have hoped for
something better than that which
look place."
THE FRENCH secret service
detained Daoud in Paris in mid-
January and a French court
released him four days later,
before extradition documents

According to the Consul
General, the Daoud release was
judicial, not political. Asked if
France would have acted in the
same manner had those slain at
Munich been Americans, he
replied, "Yes, most probably,"
adding that Daoud wasn't
released because the slain were
Jewish men and women. There
was nothing- anti-Israel in the
French action.
"THERE IS no legal case
against him (Daoud)," Bochet
said, voicing the official French
position that there was no crime
committed in France or against a
French citizen and thus did not
fall under the jurisdiction of
French law.
Lefton questioned the moral as
iposed to the legal aspects of
situation adding that, "We
do things (in the U.S.) because
they're right."
Bochet indicated that the
angry response from the Florida
Jewish community had been
large. He received "100 letters of
firotest from Florida," more than
rom any other state.
BUT, he said, "emotions are
not the right way to settle a
problem or a situation."
Bochet expressed the view that
the French government felt it had
been tried by the press.
"It was a very bad, very wrong
thing that some articles could be
written in newspapers without
the French position clearly
known," he said.
BOCHET ALSO indicated
that a Jewish travelers' boycott
u \nce ** ye* "doesn't affect
the French economy." He added
however, that many French Jews
benefit directly from the tourist
trade and said that he felt they
were the ones who would be hurt
most by the boycott.
"I've been pleased that our
meeting has been a quiet one. It
gave us an opportunity to ex-
press our views/' Bochet said. He
did concede, however, that "I am

Yitzhak Rabin, Prime Minister of Israel
"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
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.

as official opposition to Peres
who is considered a hardliner on
the issues of the territories
Mapam also demanded that
the Labor Party be ready to move
toward a socialist economic
policy, a softer attitude toward
Israeli Arabs and the creation of
Labor Mapam forums at which
policies could be worked out. The
Labor Party's answer will come
at its convention Feb. 22.
THE DECISION to oppose
Peres came after a heated dis-
cussion. Meir Talmi, Mapam's
secretary general, who supported
the resolution, said, "No one can
demand of us that we shall not
have a say as to the candidate for

Prime Minister because there is a
political significance to the man

Talmi stressed the opposition

Back Room Boys Riqqitiq isRael's election 6ay|
HAIFA At the beginning of this month the
members of the Labor Party went to their private
polling places to choose the 3,000 delegates to the party
convention to be held on Feb. 22. The calling of the
national elections came so suddenly that there was no
time for the convention delegates to declare their
stands either on issues or candidates. Yet the con-
vention will have to make the decisions which will guide
the party in the national poll on May 17.
At least that is what everybody thought until
recently. The party leadership has now decided that not
the convention, but the 601-member Central Committee
to be named by the convention, will in turn make the
decision whether Rabin or Peres or Abba Eban or
perhaps someone else will head the party ticket.
THE BACK room boys had come to the conclusion
that if the nomination came to the floor of the con-
vention, Shimon Peres stands a better chance of
winning support. In the smaller confines of the com-
mittee, dominated by the old-line politicians, Rabin's
chances would be better. Besides, decision between
competing candidates had never before been taken by
, mactk
CarI aipeRt

an entire convention, by any party in Israel. It's the
party bosses who make the decision.
The arguments against letting the convention decide
may sound far-fetched to those in the U.S. and
elsewhere who are accustomed to this form of open
democratic action. Said Meir Zarmi, Secretary-General
of the party: "I would not want a conflict like that to
shake the convention, nor that the 3,000 delegates
should be subjected to that trauma. It is our task to
preserve the unity of the party."
NEVERTHELESS in the long run, it is the con-
vention which is sovereign, and if there is any serious
desire to challenge the control of the vested party of-
ficials, the 3,000 delegates could well n
decision just made and take into their own k
naming of the candidate. Since the Labor
today saddled with an image of corruption i
bureaucratic control, it could very well h
revolution by the rank and file of the convent^ "

There are secondary considerations as Mi,

Jews in
Social CIubs
THE ISSUE of not admitting Jews as members of a number of
prestigious American social clubs has been relegated to a rear
position during the last 10 years by Jewish organizations standing
guard on equal rights for Jews. Some of the discriminating clubs
including university clubs have in the meantime begun to accept
Jews as members, while others are still stubbornly clinging to their
policy of keeping their doors closed to Jews. However, the issue as
such, lost much of its sharpness during the last decade.
NOW IT is coming back to the forefront. It has been brought
there by no other than the newly-appointed U.S. Atty. Gen. Griffin
Bell, who was recommended to this post a Cabinet post by
President Carter. He has now been confirmed by the Senate with a
75-21 vote. Mr. Bell, a prominent jurist and a long-time friend of
President Carter, has been a member of two exclusionary clubs in
his home-town Atlanta into which no Jew or Black is admitted.
National Jewish organizations are especially perturbed by the
fact that Mr. Bell declared that he is now giving up his membership
Boris SmolAR
in these discriminating clubs only temporarily for as long as he is
in the government in Washington.
HE INDICATED that when he leaves his Washington post and
returns to Atlanta, he will resume his membership in the clubs. His
statement provoked a good deal of criticism on the part of
American Jewish leaders. They interpret it to mean that the new
Attorney General believes that social clubs have a right to practice
racial and religious discrimination.
It is the obligation of an Attorney General to protect all
American citizens against discrimination based on racial, religious
or ethnic origin prejudices.
leaders of the American Jewish Committee, American Jewish
Congress, Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith therefore feel
uneasy about Mr. Bell's implied intention to rejoin the two dis-
criminating clubs in Atlanta when he returns to civilian life.
THEIR ONLY hope is that Mr. Bell will, during his service in
Washington, realize that racial and religious discrimination in
American clubs no longer reflects the American spirit. By their
unequal treatment of Jews, the discriminating clubs relegate the
Jews to unequal citizens.
The argument of those who oppose admission of Jews into their
clubs is usually that Jews have their own prestigious clubs like
the Harmonie Club in New York, the Standard Club in Chicago,
and similar clubs in other cities and that in these clubs there are
no non-Jews as members. Why should Jews be ambitious to be
accepted as members in non-Jewish clubs where they are not
wanted? they ask.
THE ANSWER is that non-Jews have no interest to become
members in Jewish social clubs; if they wanted, they would have
been admitted, despite the fact that the Jewish clubs carry an
ethnical character.
The issue is not that Jews are not admitted in the exclusionary
clubs as individuals, but that the ban is practiced against Jews as a
civilization. The boards of the anti-Jewish clubs do not say "we
don't want this or the other individual Jew as a member."
What they say is "we don't want Jews in general." They place
* he entire American Jewry in a different class than other American
THE DANGER of their policy directed against American Jews
lies in the fact that it subconsciously develops among many in-
fluential Americans members of these clubs the feeling that
"Jews are different."
It implants negative sentiments with regard to Jews even among
club members who are not anti-Semites. When prominent Jewish
personalities industrialists, philanthropists, jurists, high
government officials, people who made great contributions to
science, literature and art are a-priori not accepted, it un-
dermines their status in the eyes of the important non-Jewish club
members who have a great influence on American life.

ADL Wins Appeal
Over Disc Jockey
MADISON, Wis. (JTA) The State Supreme Court
has sustained the dismissal by a lower court of a damage suit
by a Milwaukee disc jockey against the regional office of the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith which the radio per-
former blamed for loss of his job, according to a report in the
latest issue of The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle.
Allan E. Augustine was fired by Ralph Barnes, general
manager of station WOKY, in 1974 following a talk show which
featured members of the National Socialist White People's
Party, a local Nazi group. Augustine sued the ADL for
$150,000. Barnes also was named in the lawsuit, the Chronicle
THE COURT record indicated that, during the radio show,
the Nazis used "various epithets" about Jews and Blacks and
that Augustine failed to push the button which would have
deleted such material.
Augustine also failed to use a standard disclaimer tape to
the effect that the views expressed were those of the guests and
not of the station.
IN UPHOLDING the ruling of the Milwaukee County,
Circuit Court which rejected Augustine's claims of damage, the^
Supreme Court held that "the right of free speech as guaran-
teed by the Constitution is a privilege which has been assert
(as such) and correctly so by the ADL."
Saul Sorrin, Wisconsin regional ADL director, said tl
Supreme Court decision had "affirmed the right o^

'Shtadlanut'Insuring Jewish Surviv:
By Rabbi Asher Bar-Zev
Temple Beth El,
West Palm Beach
The holiday of Purim stresses a
vitally important technique by
which our people has managed to
cope with persecution and threats
to its survival.
In the process of responding to
the world al>out us there have
been two basic approaches used
by the Jewish people in order to
thwart the designs of its enemies
and to survive.
The first of these has been
direct action in confronting the
threat head on. Examples of this
approach in .Jewish history are
the Maccaltean revolt against
Antiochus. the numerous revolts
of Jews against their Roman
oppressors and the establishment
Of the State of Israel by the
pioneering efforts of those .lews
who went to Palestine, draining
swamps, watering the desert and
creating a productive society.
Such direct action in con-
fronting challenges is the method
of choice in all situations where
there is a reasonable hope for its
Nevertheless, a second
method, growing out of our
minority status and frequent
powerlessncss. has often met
with as much success as the
method of direct confrontation.
In the Middle Ages this ap-
proach came to be known as
shtadlanut or "intercession"
because the individual having the
ear of the ruler or political leader
was known as a shtadlan or
This individual would have
access to those who could assist
the Jewish community either by
virtue of having done them
favors or serving them in some
political or executive capacity.
As a result, the request of the
shtadlan that the Jewish position
be looked upon with favor was
frequently fulfilled. Obviously,
this approach to solving the
problems of Jewish existence fell
in the category of quiet
diplomacy. However, it was no
less effective, and frequently
more effective, than direct
The most famous example of
shtadlanut is found in the Purim
story. The biblical book of Esther
is essentially a description of
court intrigue in which an anti-
Semite in a position of power
sought to destroy the Jewish
people throughout the Persian
empire. Whatever his reasons
may have; been, he almost suc-
ceeded. It .was only the presence
of Esther, a nice Jewish girl, who
happened to be married to the
Persian king, which stood bet-
ween Hainan's plan and Jewish
destruction. Under the tutorship
of her uncle. Mordacai. she inter-
ceded with the king and made use
of her personal relationship to
save her people. Here we have the
classic case of shtadlanut.

? ?Question Box? ?
Question: Why do pious Jews
sway back and forth during
prayer, study and the reading of
the Torah?
Answer: A variety of reasons
are offered for this custom. The
author of the Turim explains that
this is done because the Bible
tells us that when the Israelites
beheld the revelation of the
Divine Presence at Sinai they
swayed (Exodus 20:15).
The swaying motion would
then reveal the inspirational ex-
perience of the worshipper or the
person in prayer who comes into
some contact with the Divine
Presence during his activity in
prayer, study or reading the
Others point to the verse in the
Psalms (Chapter 351 in which
David relates that "all of his
bones (or organs)" will express
his communications with the
Almighty. The idea behind this
reasoning is that the complete
person, both his body and soul,
should be involved in com-
munication with the Almighty.
Swaying is a means of
denoting that even the body is
involved in the communication.
The Cabbalists (Zohar Num-
bers 218a) explain that the Bible
calls the soul of a person a candle
(Proverbs. Chapter 20). The
person, therefore, when he prays
or studies, reflects himself to be
the candle of the Almighty. Just
as the candle flickers so does he
move his body to and fro.
Rabbi Judah Halevi, in his
philosophical work, the Kuzari,
gives a practical explanation for
this custom. He states that
originally a number of people had
to look on in one book, either a
prayer book or a Bible, etc.
Therefore, each one would bend
over to take a look at a section
and then straighten up. It
therefore became a natural
tendency to sway back and forth
when praying or studying.
Rabbi Moses Isserles ex
plained that one is supposed to
sway back and forth during the
Torah reading because the world
shook and swayed when the
Torah was originally given at
Sinai and a Jew should imagine
himself at Sinai once again when
the Torah is being read.
Generally speaking, the sway-
ing motion indicates that the
person is deeply and directly
involved in the activity and not
simply an inactive spectator.
"Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with
curtains" lExod. 26.1). "And thou shalt hang up the veil
under the clasps, and shalt bring in thither within the veil
the ark of the testimony" 126.33).
TERUMAH The children of Israel were asked for an
offering toward the construction of the Tabernacle and its
vessels: "Gold, and silver, and brass; and blue, and
purple, and scarlet, and fine linen, and goats' hair; and
rams' skins dyed red, and sealskins, and acacia-wood; oil
for the light, spices for the anointing oil, and for the sweet
incense; onyx stones, and stones to be set, for the ephod,
and for the breastplate" (Exodus 25.3-7).
The ark was to be made of acacia-wood, covered inside
and out with gold. The table too was to be made of acacia-
wood. There were to be a golden candelabra, a tent of
curtains and boards, outer curtains and inner curtains,
and an altar of acacia-wood, covered with copper. Finally!
the construction of the court-yard of the Tabernacle was

simultaneously with a KKK-*ype cross-burning

extremely responsible and mature, and are now
guarding the construction site. In fact, the entire

about the occurrence."
There doesn't seem to be any relationship
between the two occurrences, and the ADL does
not believe that the Delray event presents a
threat to the Jewish community there.

The Miracle is You
(Philadelphia Federation Executive Vice President-1956-76)
When April whispers in March's ear, and says
farewell for another year, the people watching
stand and cheer, "The miracle of spring!"
The greening grass responds to rain; the earth
explodes with flowers and grain, each I hue discards
its wintry chain the miracle of spring.
We know of spring's eternal birth, the overnight
transforms the earth, to prove what all that
wait was worth, that miracle called spring.
And so it seems that overnight, spring does
her handiwork in flight, and single-handed
brings the light
But is this quite the fact?
There must be soil, there must be sun.
There must be help by everyone.
And rain to make the life-sap run.
To make spring's plans intact.
Now think about the lives we lead, the lives
we ease, the mouths we feed, the quick
response to human need.
Is this not magic, too?
Each fall and spring the crowds appear, to give
and speak with soothing cheer, creating
warmth and atmosphere,
Deciding what to do.
'Tis human nature now in force, determining its
springlike course, by seeking out each flame
and force, to bring the colors, too. .
We need the warmth that glows within; the heart's
great love which knows no twin the
volunteerwhere we begin
To see the project through.
To spring, with miracles bestowed, cannot alone
discharge her load and make that shining
floral road,
We know this must be true.
And as you go the human way, united,
fighting every day, my final message
has to say
The Miracle is you!

Nicholas von Hoffman, the syn-
dicated newspaper columnist and
television and radio commentator
on current events whose views
have frequently been charac-
terized as intemperate and
acerbic, delivered a no-holds
barred attack on Israel and a
fawning adulation of Saudi
Arabia on a recent program of
CBS Radio Network "Spectrum"
produced under the supervision
of CBS News.
"During the campaign, Presi-
dent Carter promised that, if
elected, there was nothing he
wouldn't do for Israel. That's one
campaign promise he might think
about going back on," von
Hoffman said Jan. 29. "There are
a number of reasons, the first of
which is oil."
IN A slick attempt to deal with
the energy shortage, the in-
creased cost of fuel, talk about
energy independence or cutting
back on energy use, von Hoffman
called attention to the need for
the American people "to be very
grateful to the Saudi Arabians
who have busted the price of oil
down for us.
"In return the Saudis have
indicated they wish us to use our
good offices to bring peace in the
Middle East which isn't going
to happen until we make it clear
to Israel that in the next war over
there, they are on their own, that
we will help in getting a per-
manent peace, but no more
shooting by anyone."
IN A SURVEY of the Middle
East situation, the columnist -
commentator noted that in
addition to the Saudis helping
the U.S. on oil, Egypt has kicked
the Russians out and has in-
dicated that it wants to be
America's friend, Syria has
tamed the Palestinians and the
Jordanians have done likewise.
Israel rrwwfor" *M*t "ip
checked and unchained
Palestinian army egged on by
other Arab nations."
"In short," the columnist-com-
mentator turned historian-
diplomat stated, the prospects
"for a reasonable peace have
never looked better from the
standpoint of the Arabs' willing-
ness to compromise. The major
obstacle is Israel, a country
whose domestic political
situation seems to prevent it
making peace.
"Only an American warning
that arms and credits will be shut
off can push the Israelis to the
negotiating table, and this is
Nicholas von Hoffman with
Spectrum, hoping Mr. Carter will
break his campaign promise and
start cooking with a little Saudi
Arabian gas."
"SPECTRUM" is described by
CBS Radio as a program
presenting "varying shades of
personal opinion on current
