American Jewry accept the
responsibility and obligation to
cure these conditions.
Shulman also noted the
problem of slipping educational
standards, "in a Jewish society
which traditionally holds
education as the basis for its
continuity," as the real tragedy
in Israel today. While attending
the opening of schools
throughout Israel, Shulman
stated, "Yesterday, one million

The Poles (1965) and the
Bulgarians, Romanians, and
Hungarians (1969) reached
technical agreements with the
European Community on the
imposition of farm levies on their

organs of the East continued to

Union by no means ignores the
real situation which has emerged
in Western Europe, including the
existence of an economic
grouping of capitalist countries
known as the Common Market.
We are carefully observing the
activity of the Common Market
and its evolution. Our relations
with the participants in the
grouping will, needless to say,
depend on the extent to which
they recognize the realities in the

Letter to
The Editor
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The stirring orchestration of
the Hava Nagilah by the Boston
Pops has come to a close and
under the spell of this beautiful
and rousing Hebrew melody I
wondered, "What does it take to
proudly declare I am a Jew?"
My mind traversed that won-
drous historic drama of some
3,000 years of survival, to the
present the hate and destruc-
tion; the grief and dispersal; the
hope and the faith, and now the
glory of Israel and the future.
HOW CAN one not accept the
"oneness" and perpetuity of a
people whose sense of purpose
and eternal spark could not be
crushed notwithstanding the
awesomeness of the Holocaust,
destroying almost one-third of its
people. A "people" who received
the Decalogue from God through
Moses bringing the concept of
the divine universal moral law to
A "people" who have survived
the greatest hatred in human
history that has lasted some 23
A "people" whose contribution
to the world's list of greats in
science, medicine, law, industry,
finance, art and literature it out
of all proportions to tha weakness
of its numbers among mankind,
whose Nobel Prize winners
number approximately 69 out of
a total of 467, or 15 percent
versus .0036 percent of the
world's population.
A "PEOPLE" whose self-
fulfillment in a Christian world
has earned the respect and
credibility of the world.
A "people" whose loyalty to
the country of their citizenship
has never once been suspected,
proved by their military service,
and yet, with a moral and
humane attachment to Israel, the
land of its forefathers."

Editor's Corner
Spotlight on Bakke
. The Carter Administration is fudging on its cam-
paign stand that reverse discrimination is as anti-
democratic as discrimination itself.
The President's spokesmen last week argued that it is
right to discriminate against the white majority in order
to rectify past wrongs, past inequities suffered by blacks
and other minorities in by-gone years.
The Carter switch comes as a consequence of the
current flap over the Allen Bakke case against the
Regents of the University of California. Bakke was denied
admittance to the Unitersity's medical school, while
academically less qualified minority applicants were
We understand the President's reasoning. We also
recognize the argument of America's black leaders who
argue that such academic handicaps are necessary in order
to bring the disadvantaged and the underprivileged,into
the nation's professional mainstream.
But we must agree with the position of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith in its amicus curiae
brief to the United States Supreme Court which will hear
the Bakke case next month.
In the brief, the ADL declares that once negative
preferential treatment is accorded one group at the ex-
pense of another, "a loophole is opened in the con-
stitutional barrier against racial quotas large enough to
render that barrier meaningless."
In effect, to consider the qualifications of an applicant
on the basis of religion, ethnic origin or sex is to confuse
affirmative action with racial preference and to support
racial goals or targets which are not the legal substance of
the Bakke case in the first place.
This is an abandonment of the position that every
American is entitled to consideration for admission on the
basis of his or her own merits.
Alex Haley's Message
Black quthor Alex Haley has had a positive ex-
perience during his recent visit in Israel.
The Roots creator said that "Israel ii a very special
country. The real beginnings and the real roots are here."
This is, of course, something that Jews have been
saying throughout their history. This is what they are
saying today in their specialized claim on the land of
It would be good if Mr. Haley were to extend his
reminiscences to our nation's black citizens, many of
whom do not see Israel the same way many of whom
hold with Israel's enemies that she is a bastion of im-
perialism and colonialism.
The recent Hanafi Muslim terrorism in Washington
and the sentencing of its perpetrators in the Khaalis case
there, are an example. Mr. Haley has an important root
message for them, and their hosts are legion. We hope he
delivers it.
The Dinosaur Who Wouldn't Quit
Art Thefts are Investigated
special police team is in-
vestigating a series of thefts of
valuable archaeological items
from the Israel Museum. The
investigation began last June
after Dr. Dan Berg of the
Education Ministry's antiquities
department found that 34 items
from a rare glass collection at the
museum were missing and other
objects were broken.
Berg, who had just returned
from the U.S., filed a complaint
with police.
SOME OF the stolen items
were traced to an Armenian an-
tiques dealer in East Jerusalem.
Some are believed to have been
smuggled into Jordan and other
Arab countries.
The investigation disclosed
that about 80 archaeological
items valued at hundreds of
thousands of Pounds have been
stolen from the Israel Museum in
recent years.
According to reports, there had
been no proper registration of the
items. In several cases, the
museum purchased antiquities
stolen earlier from the Rocke-
feller Museum in Bast Jerusalem.

U.S. Indian Earns Our Sympathy

Volume 3
Number 20
Judge William B. Gunter's
proposal for settlement of Maine
land claims of the Penobscott and
Passamaquoddy Indian tribes
may satisfy neither white
residents of Maine nor the Indian
plaintiffs. But as this dramatic
story unfolds, it undoubtedly will
clear out minds of some
misinformation about a current
minority group which came to
America at least 20,000 years
before other ethnics and achieved
majority status only to be
decimated by whites moving
We who are Jewish have good
reason to look upon the plight of
American Indians with com-
passion. For them, the Great
Father they imagined in the skies
suggested a commitment to
monotheism not unlike our own.
Again, there persists to this day
certain students of Indian lore
who cling to the belief that
American Indians may be
descendants of one of the lost
Jewish tribes of antiquity.
MOREOVER, when one
considers this people's battle to
overcome sordid stereotyping,
illiteracy, disease, joblessness,
and the tendency of latter day
Americans to denigrate them,
one has good reason to classify
Indians in the United States as
refugees, a term we can never

writing what will happen to
Judge Gunter's proposal to
provide $25,000,000 in federal
funds to the Maine Indians, to
require Maine to set aside
100,000 acres of state land in the
area under contention, and to
oblige the Secretary of Interior to
acquire long-term options on an
additional 400,000 acres. But
Judge Gunter labored assidiously
on his assignment and his
proposal certainly has merit.
Meanwhile, it is a good
exercise in civic responsibility for
us to move on from paying
constant tribute to General
Custer for his famous (or in-
famous) Last Stand at Little
Bighorn in 1876 and the
surrender of Geronimo ten years
his American Indian study,
Warriors without Weapons, has
pointedly reminded us that our
federal policy in the past was to
attempt to "civilize" and
"humanize" Indian children, to
force them to leam English in the
hope that they would "not
relapse into their former moral
and mental stupor."
Old Indian Bureau hands
boasted that they would make a
"new personality" of the
American Indian.
And MacGregor adds: "Indian
children were virtually kidnapped
to force them into government
schools, their hair was cut, and
their Indian clothes thrown

speak in their own

another pin with which to prick
the Kremlin.
BUT TO achieve this a
primary prerequisite is the
existence of a Jewish community
upon which to lavish the religious
tolerance and governmental care
and protection. With an
estimated 400.000 Rumanian
Jews (Holocaust survivors
some half a million were killed by
the Nazis) having gradually left,
mainly for Israel, over the years,
the government is apparently
concerned to retain the remaining
few thousands. (According to
Israeli estimates the current
figure is around 50.000. The
Rumanian authorities put it
Nevertheless. Israeli sources
professed themselves not
Apparently, they took heart
from the sympathetic hearing
which the Rumanian leaders gave
to Begin on the Jewish issue.
OBVIOUSLY, though, the fate
of Rumania's remaining Jews is
linked with the broader issues of
Rumania-Israel relations and of
Rumania's own policy con-
siderations, in which the Soviet
connection is always the
predominant factor.
Begin could only give the Jews
of Bucharest who flocked to the
Choral Synagogue to hear his
vague and unspecific message of
hope and encouragement. But,
given Begin "s rousing oratory
and the passionate sincerity with
which he spoke this was clearly
enough to lift the hearts of those
who heard him as their faces
so vividly portrayed.
He spoke in Hebrew, and then
in Yiddish "the language
which my mother spoke to me."
He recounted his own previous
visits to Rumania in 1938, and
again in 1939, at the head of large
groups of Betar youngsters
fleeting the Nazi scourage and
headed for Palestine.
THE FIRST groups were able
to embark on a freighter and
made their destination. The
second was turned back at the
Rumanian border when the
British envoy in Bucharest in-
tervened to invalidate their visas.
Eventually, they all went back
to Poland. "I am one of the very
few of that group of 1900 young
Jews and Jewesses who survived
the Holocaust," the Israeli leader
When a choir of youngsters in

possible for Israel to insist that it

for the Arabs to declare that the

Francois-Xavier Ortoli.
The conversation never got
beyond discussing which operas
he would like to see. As the
diplomatic tennis continued,
neither side wanted to appear too
On February 16, 1976, the
Soviets decided to try to speed
things up. East German Vice-
Premier Gerhard Weiss, who was
then the president of the
Comecon Executive Committee,
met Luxembourg Prime Minister
Gaston Thorn, then president of
the EC Council of Ministers, and
gave him a paper.
THE PAPER, carefully
drafted in Moscow sketched out
the possibilities of an EC-
Comecon deal. It mentioned such
subjects for inclusion as trade
agreements, aid, standardization,
environment, economic fore-
casting, statistical cooperation,
credit facilities, elimination of
quantitative exchange controls,
and normalization of agricultural
trade. It also suggested that EC
member countries should sign
deals to give Comecon countries
most-favored-nation trade
treatment. This was the first
direct personal contact with the
Community since the abortive
Wellenstein trip to Moscow.
But notice that again the
Soviets did not negotiate directly
with the European Community,
but via the Comecon framework.
Then, more delay. The European
Community after a long pause
acknowledged the paper but
rather huffily said that it would
take a long time to study. The
Community (a) did not want to
give Comecon too much en-
couragement, and (b) saw lots of
practical problems in the paper's
ideas. For example, it the
Community gave new trade
benefits to Comecon, might that
not damage the value of its
generous trade concessions to
developing countries under the
Lome Convention? But in early
1977, Poland (now president of
the Comecon Executive Com-
mittee) delivered a new note to
the Community via Britain
asking for a definite reply.
WHILE ALL this was going
on a completely new issue ap-
peared on the horizon fishing.
In late 1976 the Community
decided to follow the worldwide
trend by declaring a 200-mile
exclusive fishing limit.
So from January 1, 1977, it
announced that EC waters would
extend 200 nautical miles from
the coastlines of its nine conn-
tries. It also announced it was
willing to negotiate reciprocal
fishing deals for those third
countries that wanted to go on
fishing inside EC waters.
Countries like Norway and
Spain quickly agreed to open
talks. But no response came from
Moscow or other Eastern
countries. The Soviets evidently
did not fancy direct contacts with
the EC Commission, and they
probably reckoned the Com-
munity would never dare to expel
Russian fishing trawlers from EC
waters. But the Soviets had not
grasped the importance to the
Community of cutting down
questioned the legality of the
fishing limit, they might have
made things tricky. But as it
was, on December 10, 1976, they
announced their own 200-mile
fishing limit, so they could hardly
claim the Community had no
right to do the same thing.
Because the Soviets continued
to refuse to come to Brussels, the
Community arbitrarily imposed
quotas on their total catch for the
first quarter of 1977, allowing
them to net only 55,000 tons
two-thirds below their normal
annual fishing rate. And the
Community warned that if the
Soviets continued to refuse to
negotiate, they would be expelled
from EC waters altogether. The
Soviets blithely ignored these
quotas and went on fishing
through January as if nothing
had happened.
British intelligence reported
there was no sign of a cut in the
Soviet fishing, so the EC Council
decided to take a tougher line.
It said that the Soviets must
apply for permission for a small
number of named vessels to fish
otherwise all trawlers sighted
in EC waters would be subject to
Many observers doubted the
Community would dare to en-
force this tough ultimatum. But
it was the Soviets who finally
gave way. They announced they
were ready to come to Brussels
and open negotiations. On
February 16, 1977, the Russian
minister of fishery resources (who
incidentally has been minister
since 1939) arrived in Brussels.
WITHIN TWO days he had
agreed to a short-term deal with
the Community and to its basic
demands. Future fishing
arrangements will be settled
later. At a press conference af-
terwards, Ishkov was flooded

munity is only seriously in-
terested in a trade deal on two
conditions: (a) that Comecon
recognizes the reality of the
Community and thus that the
Russian Front
Did his visit not mean the Soviet
Union now recognized the
existence of the European
Community? Ishkov would only
reply, "That is a difficult
Smiling, he left puzzled
journalists to work out the an-
swer for themselves. It was clear
that, for all practical purposes,
the Soviets do recognize the
Community, even if they do not
go to the lengths of sending an
official ambassador to Brussels,
as do the Chinese.
The triumph on the fishing
issue was important enough in
itself. In recent years the
Russians have hugely increased
their fishing effort in the North
Sea (even if some of their trawlers
are merely spy-ships). Most of
the fish they have caught have
admittedly been low-grade
herring and mackerel, but at a
time when fish stocks are
dangerously depleted and
European fishermen are losing
jobs by the hundred, the Com-
munity could ill afford to allow
the Russians to continue un-
checked. But, of course, the
political importance was greater.
demonstrated on the fishing issue
(a) that it could enforce a com-
mon view on third countries, and
(b) that it does not pay to behave
as if the European Community
did not exist.
So what are the prospects for a
broader EC-Comecon deal? A
meeting between the two sides is
almost certain to be arranged
before the Belgrade Conference in
September (to review progress of
the Helsinki detente agreement).
Neither the European Com-
munity nor Comecon want to be
left open to charges that they
have done less than their best to
stimulate East-West cooperation.
But it will take far longer than
that for anything concrete to be
Commission and not the nine
separate members negotiate
trade policy, and (b) that
Comecon recognizes the reality of
Comecon, which means that only
its individual members can
negotiate trade deals.
At present, it seems that
Comecon sees things exactly the
other way round. So the argy-
bargy about whether trade
should be negotiated bilaterally
or centrally on either side will
have to be resolved before any
serious talks can start on the
The Community still
Comecon (members are the
Soviet Union, German
Democratic Republic, Romania,
Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria,
Czechoslovakia, and Cuba) as a
weapon of Soviet domination,
which has been increased by the
Soviets' use of their powers as
near-monoply suppliers of oil, gas
and a wide range of raw materials
to their smaller partners.
SO THE Community is only
willing to negotiate if freer access
and contacts between the West
and the individual Comecon
members are allowed. It has
nothing to gain from a deal which
merely strengthens Comecon's
grip on its subservient members.
One bright feature is that
Romania will be president of the
Comecon Committee in the year
ahead. And Romania has already
signed several deals of its own
with the Community
Comecon was originally set up
in 1949 by Stalin as an alter-
native to the US Marshall Plan to
help European recovery after the
war (which the Soviets had
stopped the Poles and Czechs
from taking part in). For years it
remained a primarily inward-
looking group designed to
consolidate Soviet control over
Eastern Europe and to integrate
the state economies more closely.

Dr. Kuvin spent six days at a
clinic in Metulla this summer to
"work and give advice."
What he saw was Israel
responding to the needs of a
people whose own government,
that of Lebanon, could not or
would not serve.
WHAT HE CAME away with
was the conviction that without
the aid of the Israelis "it is
certain to say that genocide
would have occured." And all
this, in a "country that can ill-
afford economic problems.
"You have to realize this is
probably the most extraordinary

Some 1,000 Lebanese within

the Israeli Philharmonic coming
to Metulla to play a concert for
the Lebanese-Christians.''
"Nowhere else has it occured
between nations under siege,"
Dr. Kuvin said.
The response from the
Lebanese-Christians has been
positive, Dr. Kuvin noted. They
are "pleased, grateful and very
friendly. They are fully aware
that their health and welfare
depends on Israeli help."
DR. KUVIN'S interest took on
a particular flavor in the border
clinics because they treat a heavy
caseload of infectious diseases,
one of his especial concerns.
Besides the Hebrew University
at Jerusalem, there are only five
other tropical disease centers in
the world.
While in Israel this summer,
Dr. Kuvin attended an in-
ternational conference on malaria
in Jerusalem to discuss a
breakthrough vaccine that may
lead to the eradication of the
Malaria, a tropical disease that
prostrates its victims with chills
and fever that can recur for years,
reportedly claimed the lives of
some 1.5 million people last year,
mostly in underdeveloped
nations, Dr. Kuvin noted.
AT ONE TIME, the killer
disease "almost prevented Israel
from becoming a state. And
that's a fact," Dr. Kuvin stated.
The largest center for study of
the vaccine, which is now
produced worldwide, is at the
Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
As the disease is still indigenous
to areas bordering Israel, ac-
cording to Dr. Kuvin, the
university has the largest
reference center in the world for
the growth of the many culture
strains of the disease.
Although on the surface it may
seem that Israel has temporarily
locked its founding code away in
a closet. Dr. Kuvin, will tell you it
just isn't so. On the contrary, he
would say, Israel remains true to
its religious prescriptions. Dr.
Kuvin quoted Elijah, his favorite
prophet: 'Out of Zion shall come
forth the law and the word of the
Lord from Jerusalem.'"

Producer Denies Play
Shut Due to Anti-Semitism
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Contrary to the headline
"Anti-Semitism Flap Shuts Din-
ner Theater," which appeared in
a Miami newspaper here, the din-
ner theater never closed and there
is nothing anti-Semitic about the
play, My Son the President,
according to Michael J. Glan-
field, producer.
The play, now showing at the

ThZlraeli physicians, all Israeh Defense
Christian Force volunteers, near the Israeli-Lebanese
Marco Polo Hotel's Dinner
Theater, is an original comedy
about the first Jewish President.
"THE headline is not even
near true," Glanfield said. "The
play has never shut down. One
night only, one couple showed up,
and we decided to do the play
anyway. We thought we could
use it as rehearsal. The play went
on and the actors were paid for
their work that night."
Glanfield said the charge of
anti-Semitism stems from a scene
where the President's mother is
portrayed as an old, poor woman
in glasses, stockings and an old
"Some people were offended
that she didn't wear a mink
stole," he said. "But that is not
anti-Semitic. Letters have been
pouring in to me saying the play
is not anti-Semitic.
"THERE are Orthodox Jews
in the cast, and they think this is
the most pitiful and ridiculous
thing they have seen."
Glanfield has demanded a
retraction of the article, or he
says he wilLseek legal action. He
says the article has hurt his
reputation and the chances that
the play will be extended beyond
Oct. 2.
"The publicity we've gotten
has killed the play, and it's just a
play. If people can't go to a
theater and get involved in some-
thing not real without taking
offense at everything, then it is
pitiful," he said.

Why then us?
It is perhaps to drive home to
us that while we have a long

a highly significant period in
Jewish history are today's
Jewish history and will mostly
certainly influence and even
shape tomorrow's.
Ours is a choice to choose or
not to choose a life which

Question: Why are the esrog,
ralav and the other two species
waved and shaken in all direc-
tions during the Snecoth holiday
Answer: This practice, called
na-anuim. has a variety of
reasons offered for its require-
ment. One opinion cited in the
Talmud (Succah) claims that this
is done to indicate the omni-
presence of the Almighty who is
Another opinion in the Talmud
claims that this is done to keep
away "evil winds" which would
cause destruction to humans as
well as the crops.
THE Midrash claims that
waving the species in all direc-
tions symbolizes the .clouds of
divine glory which are supposed
to descend on the festival of Suc-
coth from all directions.
Some connect this practice
with the Biblical verse in
Chronicles I, which states that
the "trees of the forest shall sing
for joy." This is perhaps an
indication that the waving of the
vegetative species is symbolic of
the fact that all nature, including
man, joins together in rejoicing
over the Lord's presence and
singing His praises.
Still others see this as a sym-
bolic gesture asking for rain to be
sent by the Almighty from the
heavens so that vegetation may
develop and grow for the benefit
of all living beings.
Qmsuob: What are "wh
pUmT' What Is the reason for
Answer: Uthpizin is an
Aramaic term moaning "guests."
With reference to the festival of
Succoth, the ushpizin are the
seven individual guests who are
formally invited and "received"
into the Succah each of them
on a consecutive day.
They are the Patriarchal
figures Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
Mosea, Aaron, Joseph and
David. The practice is traced to a
passage in the Zohar (Emor 103b)
which states that when a man
resides in the shadow of faith (aa
represented by a Succah) the
Divine Presence hovers over him
fronr^toeve- antf* seven Ttgntsutnr
ones abide with him.
SOME claim that this practice
encouraged the owners of the
Succah to provide hospitality to
the poor. Others claim that the
practice indicates that the com-
paratively meager surrounding of
the Succah is balanced by the
rich ancestry of the Jew.
Also, it is said that the protec-
tive walls and covering of the
Succah is not made of physical
matter alone but of the grand
history of our ancestors whose
story we merely continue.
Question: Why does Jewish
tradition required that the first of
the "Selicboth" sessions take
place in the synagogue after
midnight on Saturday night?
(This year it occur, after mid-
night, Saturday night, Sept. 3)
Answer: Several reasons .are
offered for this practice. First,
some claim that after having
observed the Sabbath and still
being somewhat imbued by the
Sabbath spirit the Jew is in the
best spiritual state of the week to
ask the forgiveness of the
The question then remains as
to why we wait until after the
midnight hour. For this two
reasons are advanced. The
mystical tradition asserts that
the time to stimulate the divine
attribute of mercy is after
midnight-especially during the
first recitation.
The second reason hoe to do
with the spirit of the Sabbath.
The Sabbath, being a day of rest
and peace, is indeed not the
occasion for regret which is the
spirit generated by the Selichot
Ciyers. A Jew is supposed to
ve inner peace on the Sabbath
and not be reminded of his pongs
of guilt. The tendency is to ex-
tend this peaceful mood of the
Sabbath as long as possible-at
least until mMwtaV instead of
trying to "got rid" of the Sab-
bath as quickly as possible.
Hence the first of the SaUchoth
services traditionally takes place
after the first midnight which
follows the Sabbath so that the
Jew will not be reminding himself
-of his sins until the Sabbath
spirit is well in the background.
why this requirement is to be
carried out.
Over and over again in our
Scriptures we are admonished
that while we do indeed have the
right of is our own
advantage as individuals.. .and
to add meaningfulness to our own
lives.. .that our choice should lie
in the direction of embracing
duty and responsibility.
This we have the right to be
indifferent in all areas of
responsibility; but we have the
duty not to be indifferent. We
have the right not to attend adult
education classes, but we have
the duty to attend, to learn, and
to act upon and impact what we
WE HAVE the right to remain
aloof from Congregational op-
portunities and concerns; but we
have the duty and responsibility
to be involved___and involved all
of our days.
We have the right to limit our
synagogue attendance.. .but we
have the duty to influence by
example. It isn't enough with our
family, our neighbors and our
friends, our fellow congregants,
our rabbis, to simply claim
Jewish conviction. We must
demonstrate what we how we
what we do___
We are indeed entitled to enjoy
life, and attend our social fun-
ctions where we live, especially
after those years of hard work,
and now as the years of
retirement have reached us, we
seek to enjoy life; but we cannot
retire from God's house and
attending services. We can enjoy
our social activities, but must it
be on Friday evenings and
Saturdays? Can't we respect our
Sabbath, and observe it as we
have done in the past? It is a
duty to be observant to show our
friends that we are believers and
act as we believe.
THERE IS no substitute for
the kind of persuasion which
stems from example. That is why
the emphasis is the teaching of
our faith in doing... not simply in
All of us must care about
Judaism...or we wouldn't have
been at the Temple on the High
Holy days and other Festivals.
But how many of us care enough
to have even thought of making
some provision for the continuity
of a Temple in their wills? Or to
contribute voluntary to various
charitable institutions that care
for the needy, the poor, and for

Thanksgiving, offer our
