On Jewish Education
Jewish Community Day School
As a newcomer to the Palm
Beach area, I look forward to
many opportunities to discuss
the varied facets of Jewish
education. I anticipate that a
lot of you have questions about
the nature and role of Jewish
education in the United States.
I look forward i
specifically to'
addressing quer-
ies on the place of |
a Jewish Day
School in con-1
temporary Am-
erican Jewish I
life. I hope to use |
the column to l
spark discussion I
regarding major
themes and pop-
ular questions.
The Jewish Community Day
School of Palm Beach County is
generously subsidized by the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County. With the high costs of
quality education today, this
subsidy cannot cover the full
budget. It is, however, an in-
dication of strong commitment to
Jewish education on the part of
local Jewish leadership.
FEDERATIONS throughout
the nation have shown similar
commitment in recent years, and
have greatly increased local al-
locations to Jewish education.
Israeli leadership has often
stated that Jewish education is
the single most important local
need for American Jewry. With-
out a new generation of Jews,
No Frills
El Al Flight
Al announced that it will operate
cheap, no-frills flights to and
from the U.S. beginning next
month and will inaugurate lower
cost group fares next spring.
Mordechai Ben-Ari, director
general of the air-line, told
reporters at a news conference
here that a round-trip winter
seven-day group flight will cost
$500 under the new policy com-
pared to $630 for regular winter
group flights.
FREE MEALS will not be
served on these flights, a practice
started recently by Britain's
Laker Airline with whom El Al
competes on the New York-Lon-
don route.
Ben-Ari said his company is
working out another low-rate
group fare to go into effect in
April between Israel and Europe.
The London-Tel Aviv round
trip fare will be $500 compared to
the regular high season fare of
$791, and only $350 for groups of
40 or more persons.

A Jewish Day School is a
school committed to providing
both a quality general education,
and an intensive Jewish
education under the same roof.
Experience has shown that it is
not possible to achieve the goals
of a thorough Jewish education
when Jewish studies are tacked
on after a full day of public
school. When children study in a
Jewish Day School the obser-
vance of Jewish values and ideals
is shared with classmates, rather
than setting them apart from the
group. A modern Jewish Day
School provides opportunities for
integrating Jewish values with
all aspects of the curriculum.
Contemporary American
society is based on the ideal of
cultural pluralism. The disap-
pearance of diverse groups is not
an American ideal. Quite the
opposite; the future of American
society will depend on its ability
to nurture creative and well-
informed groups, each preserving
and communicating its own heri-
tage, while working together to
knit the fabric of American life.
THE JEWISH Community
Day School presents a unique
approach to Jewish life. A major
goal of the school is to create a
positive approach to Jewish
tradition and to develop in the
child an understanding of and
appreciation for the varieties of
Jewish expression.
Joyous celebration of Shabbat
and the holidays highlight the
weeks, and recitation of morning
prayers and blessings before and
after meals are daily events. As a
community institution, the
Jewish Community Day School
does not pressure children to
conform to any fixed pattern of
observance. Rather, they learn
that there are many approaches
to Jewish traditions, and that
differences in patterns of obser-
vance are legitimate expressions
of differences in outlook and
Graduates of Jewish
Schools consistently produce ex-
cellent records in the best high
schools and colleges, winning
more than their share of awards
and scholarships. In fact, the
training in language and study of
classic Jewish texts provide day
school pupils with knowledge and
skills that graduates of public
schools usually do not have. The
Jewish Community Day School
has small classes with much in-
dividualized instruction,
especially in language arts and
mathematics. All teachers, for
both general and Jewish studies,
are certified, experienced, and
highly skilled. The classroom
atmosphere is warm, relaxed and
accepting. In a Jewish Com-
munity Day Schhol, the hap-
piness and welfare of each child is

Editor's Corner
Meeting Cyrus Vance
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance has invited leading
representatives of the American Jewish press, including
The Jewish Floridian, for a briefing on the Middle East in
Washington on Friday, and so it is patently impossible, as
this is being written, to know exactly what he will say.
On the other hand, it is not too difficult to predict the
substance of his remarks when the publishers and editors
gather to hear him explain the administration's policy in
its pursuit of peace between Israel and the Arabs.
The prediction emerges out of the invitation itself.
There is a sense of urgency President Carter and his
spokesmen feel these days to define what needs no
definition at all. In terms of the President's Middle East
policy, it is clear that he says one thing but does another.
Carter Protests too Much
As William Safire has opined in his New York Times
column of Oct. 6, "Under Soviet pressure, Mr. Carter has
announced his embrace of the 'rights' to a state demanded
by the Palestine Liberation Organization Every step
Mr. Carter takes is to create that state."
Still, "as Mr. Carter rigs the outcome of the Geneva
conference with the Soviets, he goes out of his way to
insist that 'we do not intend to impose a settlement.' "
Like Hamlet, argues Safire, the President protests too
How better to understand his by now presumptuous,
if not trouble-making vow, giving credence to the cries of
double allegiance increasingly being leveled against the
American Jewish community in this issue, that he'd
rather "commit political suicide" than sell Israel out. We
have a notion that the Friday conference with Secretary
Vance is part of this excessive protest.
If the President indeed means what he says then, as
Safire has written, let him put "an end to duplicity." Let
him not take "the American public for fools." Let his
words fit his actions.
Then, no explanations will be necessary.
Fire Must be Fought
The vicious attack against Israel launched by the
Armed Forces Journal, a privately-owned monthly, is
replete with statements that Israel is "something pain-
fully close to a permanent liability" to the United States
and that Israel has become "a militaristic state whose
military build-up has gone far beyond the requirements of
The sad part of it is the silence maintained by the
Jewish community. Surely the article deserved some
reaction, some hint of chagrin, some gesture of distress,
some visibility of anger and concern.
Perhaps they felt that they were already engaged on
too many fronts regarding the Carter administration's
stance on the Mideast. But articles such as Cor desman's
add fuel to the anti-Israel fire. And fire must be fought.

New Knesset Committee Forms
JERUSALEM (JTA) A new Knesset committee has
been born a subcommittee for military procurement and
industry which intends to increase Knesset involvement in
arms purchases. The subcommittee, comprising members of the
Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, discussed the next
generation of warp lanes.
ITS CHAIRMAN, Moshe Arens, met with Al Schwimmer,
former Israel Aircraft Industry managing director, and
Mordechai Hod, former Air Force commander.
The discussion reflected an ongoing debate over whether
Israel should purchase sophisticated war planes such as the F-
16 in the U.S. or invest her resources in her own production of

TERRORISM IS perfectly
understandable as an act of war.
Those who would recoil from this
as a hideous piece of immorality
are guilty of an act worse than
war itself.
In seeing some acts of war as
acceptable and others not in
seeing other acts of war as
barbarous and outside the pale of
civilizational decorum they
sentimentalize war.
BUT IT is the sentimentality
of war that has made war
respectable when, in fact, war is
not respectable. No act of war is
War is an assault on human
dignity, and if one is to be guilty
of assaulting human dignity,
then why is the bayonet any more
respectable than, say, hijacking a
Lufthansa plane to Somalia?
Only the sentimentalist would
think it is; only the sen-
timentalist would seek to apply
ground rules to a death struggle.
Without his vain and pathetic
efforts, the death struggle would
appear to be precisely what it is
rather than what the sen-
timentalist seeks to disguise as a
colorful ideological joust.
WITHOUT HIS vain and
pathetic efforts, war itself might
be avoided far more frequently
than it is.
If terrorism, then, is perfectly
understandable as an act of war,
what is its status as a political
The answer is that as a
political act terrorism is a
paradox which can not be
separated from the sentimental
view of terrorism as a barbarous
But the truth is that a terrorist
in the eyes of one man is a noble,
self-sacrificing freedom-fighter in
the eyes of another, hence the
THE ZIONIST is appalled by
Yasir Arafat and George Habash,
seeing them as comrades-in-arms
prepared to commit every
conceivable rape of human
decency in the cause of
destroying Israel, when Arafat
and Habash are motivated by
entirely different things if they
are not, in fact, outright enemies.
The Arab sees Menachem
Begin as a terrorist and professes
he will never forget Deir Yasin. It
is this terrorist and his country,
the Arab vows, he will get in the
end, so help him Allah.
The Zionist says this is one
more example of the ages-old
genocidal struggle against
Jewish existence. The Arab says
he is committed to bringing an
end to imperial colonialism, of
which Zionism is a primary racist
and ritualistic activities war tk.
unholy alliances th*'v 11,
t the same
The paradoxes mount because
most of the arguments on both
sides of the fence are non sequitur
and because ideological bed-
fellows are in reality enemies and
enemies bedfellows.
IF ARAFAT and Habash are a
primary example of bedfellows as
enemies, Israel and the Arabs,
say, in Lebanon are an equally
significant example of enemies as
There are other examples of
paradoxical thought on terrorism
and not only in the hotbeds of
world terrorist activity. Even so
distinguished an observer as the
American author, Jonathan
Schell, writing of Law in the
United States, declares that "The
Founding Fathers' act of creation
was a legal act (italics mine)."
But the American revolution
was, by definition, a war to
overthrow the existing British
hegemony and, therefore, by no
stretch of the imagination a legal
confessed that the Declaration of
Independence was written to
serve warning to the world of the
colonists' revolutionary in-
tentions because their "decent
respect to the opinions of
mankind" required it of them.
But legal? Of course not, as
Jefferson so well understood, and
that is why he and the other
Founding Fathers dedicated "our
lives, our fortunes, our sacred
honor" to the success of their
terrorist act. They knew what the
British would do to them as
traitors if the revolution failed.
Precisely because terrorism
and terrorists themselves are
civilizational outcasts from one of
civilization's most ceremonial
ideological confusion at the i '
time that they are
social chaos.
THIS IS especially true ,,
West Germany today" How for
example, do you explain the'fM
that Ulrike Meinhof. one of t
founders of the Baader-Meinhnf
group, got her start as a terrori*
because her aunt was an Ausch
J wita Concentration Camp inmate that "You cannot talk with
people who made Auschwitz"?
How do you square this with
the fact that the Palestinian
terrorists who hijacked the
Lufthansa plane issued
propaganda paper when
seemed they would be successful
in pulling it off that charged that
"while the Zionist regime em-
bodies most genuinely a practical
extension of Nazism, the Bonn
government and its par-
liamentary deputies do their
utmost to revive Nazism and
expansionist racism in West
If this lingo is in.
comprehensible to all save a
schizophrenic, the terrorists
demand made at the same time
that the propaganda paper was
issued is even more so that the
11 members of the Baader-
Meinhof group now imprisoned in
West Germany be released forth-
with on the grounds that "our
comrades...(are)...detained in
prisons of the imperialist-
reactionary Zionist alliance."
SINCE THE code name for the
hijack operation was Kfar
Kaddoum, a recently established
Israeli settlement on the West
Bank, which the terrorists in-
tend, among other things, to
liquidate someday, does this
mean, say, to Ulrike Meinhof
that it was the Zionists who sent
her aunt to Auschwitz in the first
h is confusions in terrorist
logic such as these that make
terrorism so irrational, more so,
perhaps, than the individual acts
of terrorism they perpetrate.

unwind the snagged lines of I
connection among some of the
international terrorist!

THERE were many similari-

stemmed from West Germany's
and Israel's implacable deter-

hijacked the Lufthansa jet called
itself the "Organization of

New Gush Settlements Revealed
At West Bank Military Sites
TEL AVIV (JTA>-Deputy Defense Minister Mordechai
Zipori has announced further Gush Emunim settlements at
military camps on the West Bank and indicated that such
settlements will be a continuing feature of government policy.
He said the government is not bound by any plans of the
previous government or by the so-called Allon plan.
IT IS THE intention of the government to establish as many
new settlements on the West Bank as possible with the
ultimate aim of settling areas in strategic regions and along
essential routes, he said.
Zipori said he would have preferred that the settlements were
not located in army camps but political considerations forced
Israel to act in that way.
He said the Defense Ministry would be responsible for the
settlements in the Judaea and Samaria regions.

Ranter, Donner Plan Joint Venture
A partnership agreement to
develop $26 million worth of
property in Palm Beach County,
together with a long-term
agreement on additional future
projects, has been signed by
Joseph H. Kanter, chairman of
the Board of the Kanter Cor-
poration of Florida, William
Donner, president of Donner
Enterprises, and his wife, Amy
Steele, an attorney.
Kanter is one of the nation's
largest New Town developers,
while Donner specializes in in-
dividual site development and
"WE'RE bringing together ex-
pertise in separate but com-
plementary fields, as well as
extensive financial resources,"
they said.
"The combination will enable
us to embark on even larger
projects in the future."
Donner-Kanter will be
researching new building ven-
tures in South Florida.
GROUND will be broken
within 30 days on three major
developments: Atriums of Palm
Beach, a $12.5 million, 106-unit
twin tower, oceanfront con-
dominium in Palm Beach.
The second is Woodside, a $6
million development of 147 single
family homes one mile from 1-95
in Boynton Beach.
The third is the Palms of Del-
ray, a 60-unit, $2.1 million con-
dominium at the corner of Law-
son and Homewood in Delray
AN IMPORTANT part of the
joint venture agreement is the
financial strength of Kanter and
his various companies. Kanter
controls the Boulevard National
Bank of Miami and ITI Cor-
poration, listed on the American
Stock Exchange. In the '50s, Mr.
Kanter was among the largest
More Soviet Jews Coming to Israel
JERUSALEM (JTA) More Soviet Jews reached Israel
last month than in September, 1976 but the dropout rate
reached 55 percent in September, 1977 compared to 51 percent
in August, Uzi Narkiss, director of the World Zionist Organiz-
tion's immigration and absorption department reported at the
weekly meeting of the WZO Executive.
NARKISS SAID that 763 immigrants from the Soviet Union
arrived last mouth compared to 495 in the same month last
He attributed the increase to attempts by the Soviet
authorities to improve their image while the conference on
compliance with the Helsinki Agreement human rights clauses
meets in Belgrade.
But the total number of immigrants arriving in September
increased only slightly from one year ago.
THE FIGURES were 1852 against 1746, Narkiss reported.
With respect to the dropout problem, he said most dropouts
came from the larger Soviet cities, as they have in the past.
He said that of 336 Jews who left Odessa in September, only
three came to Israel.

A Case for J<
PLO: A Formula for the Dissolution of th<
1. The PLO has sought to justify its war of terror through an
ideology which negates the existence of the Jewish people and their
right to sovereignty in e state of their own. Indeed, the very symbols of
the organization its maps, its badges, its postage stamps, all
display the raised gun over Israel or the bloody dagger through the
heart of the country.
2. The basic document giving expression to the ideology of the
PLO is the Palestine National Covenant, adopted in 1964, the year the
PLO was created by the Arab States, and amended in 1968.
(a) Article 1 states that "Palestine is the homeland of the Pales-
tinian Arab people and an integral part of the great Arab home-
(b) ". when the liberation of its homeland is completed it (the
Palestinian people) will exercise self-determination solely ac-
cording to its own will and choice." (article 3)
(c) "Jews who were living permanently in Palestine until the
beginning of the Zionist invasion (defined as 1917) will be con-
sidered as Palestinian." (article6)
(d) ". the establishment of Israel is fundamentally null and
voice. ."and "The Balfour Declaration, the Mandate Document,
and what has been based upon them are considered null and void.
The claim of a historical or spiritual tie between Jews and
Palestine does not tally with reality, nor with the constituents of
statehood in their true sense." (Articles 19 and 20)
1. In short, the aim of the PLO is pollticide: the destruction of the
State of Israel and Its people. The PLO has not changed in any way the
terms of the Covenant. On the contrary, the 10 points adopted at the
1974 National Council continued to demand the right to "self-
determination on its entire national soil," and the necessity to con-
tinue "through all means the armed struggle to liberate the Pales-
tine land ." (Article 1 and 2). In 1977, this program of destruction
was once again reaffirmed. The final communique of the 13th Pales-
tinian National Council on the 21st of March, 1977, called for "the
liberation of Palestine from the Zionist racist occupation" and for
Israel's replacement by "the democratic State of Palestine."
1. Security Council Resolution 242 is the only formula which has
found acceptance by the States parties to the conflict. Its basic
concept, "the establishment of a just and lasting peace" in the Middle
East through agreement between the States concerned, is founded on
the precept that the matter in dispute must be settled between the
2. Security Council Resolution 338, adopted after the 1973 Yom
Kippur War, calls upon the parties to start immediate implementation
of Security Council Resolution 242 through negotiations. It does not
include references to any other resolution other than Security Council
Resolution 242.
3. Security Council Resolution 242 calls for a "just settlement of
the refugee problem" in recognition of the fact that in addition to a
Palestine Arab refugee problem there is also a Jewish refugee
4. Neither In He philosophy, nor In its language, Is Security
Council Resolution 242 concerned with the creation of a 22nd Arab
State on the ruins of one Jewieh State.
The concepts of peaceful settlement demanded by Security
Council Resolution 242 clearly involve relinquishing the "armed
struggle." The political Statement of the 13th National Council on
March 21, 1977, paragraph 1, "emphasized opposition to this reso-
lution and refusal to negotiate on its basis." Paragraph 2 stressed that
"the PLO is determined to continue the armed struggle "Para-
graphs 3 and 4 called for an "escalation of the armed struggle" and
"opposition to the American arrangements of surrender."
This Is not only an attitude but a policy of complete opposition to
both the letter and spirit of Security Council Resolution 242. The
dedication to the Ideology of the Covenant end the concept of "armed
struggle" remains the policy of the PLO.
Secretary of State Vance at a press conference in Jerusalem on th
16th of February, 1977, expressed United States policy towards tr
PLO when he said: "As long as they (the PLO) stand by the Covenar
and refuse to accept Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338 M
provides no basis for participation in the Geneva Conference.
On May 12, 1977, President Carter elaborated on this when
stated that the United States Government .
"promised the Israeli Government that we would not recognize th
PLO by direct conversations and negotiations as long as the F
continued to espouse the commitment that Israel has to

--------Logic, Carter, G<
By Henry Groaaman, Chairman
Community Relations Council
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County
If President Carter were to apply strict logic to the I
actual Mideast situation, he would have altered his
approach to Geneva. The mental gymnastics, flip-flops
and PLO tilt, based on the advice of Zbigniew
Brzezinski, head of the Security Council and the State
Department's long preference for the Arab states over
Israel, caused a United States policy change. This[
brought the USSR back into the Middle East limelight
and created a base for Geneva which would insure
The logic of the situation is clear and inescapable:
President Carter's desire, to be warmly applauded, is a
Geneva conference which will bring a lasting peace to
the Middle East. He was convinced that this can be
achieved If the PLO is included and "legitimate in-
terest" of the Palestinians is satisfied. This is short-
hand for a retreat from "occupied Arab lands" and the
establishment on the West Bank of a Palestinian
"homeland" dominated by the PLO!
The Joint U.S.-Russian declaration was, in
Carter's thinking, a step in this direction. With the two
super powers in agreement, it seemed to him and his
advisors, Israel would acquiesce, the Arabs would have
gained their objective, and a "successful" Geneva
would be inevitable.
What would have been the price? Israel would face
a new alignment of Arab forces, with the West Bank a
base for continued, stronger attacks. The PLO has
never renounced its clear goal, stated in its covenant of
the total destruction of Israel. Israel's goal of a just
peace, with secure borders, economic and social
relations with Arab states, would Indeed have been a
Evidently, his advisors convinced Carter that there
was or would be a softening of the PLO position. There
were hints that the PLO would accept Israel's right to
exist. The PLO Itself exploded this myth. Terrorism
continues. The PLO covenant remains; Israel must be
removed. Arab extremists clearly see the establish-
ment of a West Bank "homeland" as the first step
leading to a successful war of extermination against
Israel. Promises of International security have proved
worthless, and would be. In fact, the written U.S.-lsraet
agreement that the United States would never
negotiate with a PLO which has not renounced its
purpose of destroying Israel, has already been proved
worthless. We, the United States, have unilaterally
compromised this agreement I

from the PLO, even these could not be relied on. The

resolutions of its National Council, the practice of terror against
civilians, its aim to supplant and destroy Israel; all these have led
both the United States and Israel to state and restate that the mere
acceptance of Security Council Resolution 242 is neither sufficient,
nor could it serve as a basis for regarding the PLO other than as it
describes itself, namely, an organization bent upon the destruction of
Israel as an independent, sovereign Jewish State.
3. The PLO is, therefore, neither a party nor a partner to
negotiations. Its philosophy and its deeds cannot lead either to peace
or to reconciliation, but are a prescription for continued stife and
warfare, which endanger not only Israel's security, but inflame the
area as a whole.
4. Israel continues to believe firmly in the necessity for direct
negotiations, without prior conditions, betwen the States involved, on
the basis of Security Council Resolution 242 in its entirety. Her
strength is dedicated to the achievement of peace, which is the
highest goal and the prime necessity for the people of the entire area.
This is a task and a hope which she shares with the United States.
"The PLO is opposed to Security Council Resolution 242 as It
ignores the rights of the Palestinians and recognizes Israel within
secure boundaries The armed struggle must be continued. There
is no escape from the creation of an independent Palestinian state on
our entire land."
Farouk Kadoumi
Chief Political Office, PLO
In the Beirut "Monday Morning"
(as quoted by the Voice of Palestine
Auguest 14,1977)
1. The "armed struggle" in the words of Farouk Kadoumi is indeed
continuing. Since the beginning of the year more than 50 attempts
have been made by PLO terrorists to explode bombs in Israel. Two
people have been killed, more than 120 wounded. The latest in this
series of deadly attentats, the bus explosion in Afula on the 16th of
August in which eight civilians were injured was followed by a PLO
announcement that, once again, it is determined to escalate its terror
operations "everywhere in Palestine."
2. Since 1967, hundreds of attempts to kill and maim civilians, and
destroy property, have taken place. Among them the bloody murders
of children at Ma'alot and Kiryat Shmona. But murder and injury are
not just newspaper statistics. In the words of Prime Minister Begin:
"when we say wounded, we don't describe the reality. We should say
legless, armless, eyeless, handless people, maimed for a lifetime, all
of them civilians, men, women, and children" (August 15,1977).
3. The PLO has not confined itself to terrorism in Israel. Its at-
tempts to set up a state within a state in Lebanon brought about
murderous anarchy and a bloody civil war in that country. In the words
of the Lebanese Ambassador, Edouard Ghorra, to the United Nations
General Assembly on Oct. 14,1976:
"They (the PLO) acted as if they were a state of states within the
State of Lebanon and flagrantly defied the laws of the land and
the hospitality of its people."
"Friction between the Lebanese authorities and people and
the Palestinians was caused by constant Palestinian inter-
vention in the internal affairs of Lebanon and intolerable en-
croachment on its sovereignty."
4. In the Arab world, and above all in Jordan, the PLO has been a
constant source of inter-Arab strife, the height of which was reached
in the attempt to take over that country in 1970. That this goal has not
been abandoned since is attested to by Article 5 of the resolutions of
the Palestine National Council, June 1-8,1974."
'The PLO will struggle with the Jordanian patriotic forces for the
establishment of a national Palestinian-Jordanian front whose
goal is the establishment of a democratic national regime in
Jordan that will establish an organic link with the Palestinian
entity that will come about as a result of combat and struggle."
5. In the world at large the PLO has played a major role in an inter-
national terror conspiracy. Aiming at the stability of Western demo-
cratic countries, it has inspired and cooperated with the Baader
Meinhof gang on the Entebbe hijacking, and with the Japanese Red
Army on the massacre at Lod Airport. It was directly responsible for
the murder of two American Ambassadors In Lebanon and Sudan.
Innocent civilians In tons of countries have perished at its hands.

H. Irwin Levy, a participant in
the recent UJA Prime Minister's
Mission to Israel, related his ob-
servations of the critical need for
providing adequate housing for
new immigrants "who seek a new
life in Israel, free of oppression."
Due to the staggering burden of
Israel's defense budget, Levy
pointed out the necessity for
World Jewry to ease that burden
by increased commitment to the
health, education, and welfare
programs of that country.
"The exploding Jewish pop-
ulation here in Palm Beach
County presents the challenge
and the opportunity for us as a
Jewish community," stated
Shulman. "The challenge is to
meet the needs of Jewish edu-
cation, the needs of the elderly,
and the needs of those who
cannot care for themselves. The
opportunity is to enlist as many
people as possible, to work with

fy Israel will have to make concessions.
THIS IS obviously upsetting to me as a concerned and involved
0 and as a proud American. The United States, in past decades
, represented the moral fibre of the free world. America with her
it history of justice, is now joining hands with the Soviet Union a
ion that can hardly be recognized as a bastian of human rights or
that recognizes border integrity of other nations, in an att*mDt to

asked each of them to cancel their

Morton Maisel, cochairman of
the South Florida JDL.
Maisel said that "perfor-

He also stated that he was in

Crisis Heats Up for Jews Of Argentina
In a plot worthy of a Costa
Garvas film, anti-Semitic
elements associated with the
extreme right wing of the
Argentinian military have been
harassing prominent Jewish
Argentinians in an attempt to
bring down the current Videla
regime and replace it with an
even more reactionary junta.
The recent emigration under
duress of Jacobo Kovadloff, an
Argentinian Jew with familial
roots in Latin America extending
the Graivers had set up an in-
vestment fund for guerillas.
THOUGH THE charge has
not been substantiated,
Argentinian newspapers have
reported that the Graiver family
laundered $17 million handed
over to it by the Montoneros.
This sum was supposedly ob-
tained by the guerillas in the
course of several well-publicized
kidnappings. The Graivers have
also been charged with a number
of other highly irregular financial
When news of the purported
Latin America
back five generations, may be an
example of such harassment,
and, as such, may serve to un-
derline the precarious situation of
Argentinian Jewry.
KOVADLOFF was a well
known figure in Argentinian
Jewish circles. For the past seven
years, he had acted as the chief
representative of the American
Jewish Committee (AJC) in
Argentina. As such, he had
developed ties both with the
government officials and with the
most visible Jewish leaders in
Buenos Aires.
In mid-June, Kovadloff and his
family began to receive
threatening phone calls and
notes. They were warned that
they must leave the country,
permanently and immediately,
and must close the AJC office.
Private telephone conversations
involving family members were
interrupted, and the family's
movements were closely watched.
Deeply worried, the family made
hurried plans to leave their
Even with aid from the
American Embassy (offered
because Kovadloff worked for an
American organization The
American Jewish Committee) the
Kovadloffs were harassed during
their departure.
NOT ONLY were the
Kovadloffs subjected to
especially thorough searches, but
personal property belonging to
Kovadloffs son was "accidently"
destroyed by security agents,
and documents of the Embassy
officials were also checked this
last measure a particularly rare
While there is no proof as to
the identities of the people
responsible for these incidents,
there is some indication (noting
the ability to tap phones and to
effect the behavior of security
officials) that those involved
have government ties.
The first threatening phone
call received by Mrs. Kovadloff
warned that if her husband did
not "leave the country the same
thing that happened to Timer-
man will happen to him."
Jewish editor of a leading liberal
dairy newspaper. La Opinion, has
been held in custody by the army
without charges since Apr.
15 of this year. Kovadloff has
known Timerman's family since
childhood, and had been asked by
his friends to use his contacts to
intervene on Timerman's behalf.
Timerman, in turn, appears to
have been imprisoned because of
his ties with yet another
prominent Jewish family, the,
Graivers, who own 55 percent of
the corporation publishing La
Opinion. In recent years, the
Graiver family had built an
international banking empire,
and had acquired major com-
mercial and real estate holdings.
Their financial fortunes began
to turn, however, when a cap-
tured member of the Montonero
guerrilla army (a leftist-Peronist
group which is currently waging
an underground war to bring
down the government) "con-
fessed" to his interrojrators that
Graiver connection to the
Montoneros became public,
extreme right-wing elements
began to exploit the fact that the
Graivers are Jewish, and that
they were tied to previous
Argentinian governments
governments which, while far
from liberal in an American
context, must be seen as
moderate within the Argentinian
political spectrum.
Among the first of the past and
Kresent government officials to
e "tainted" by these con-
nections to the Graiver family
was Jose Ber Gelbard, Minister
of Economics in Peronist
governments until late 1974, and,
as such, probably the highest
been carried out not by the
government itself but by the
military. The Navy and the Army
First Corp have been particularly
involved. It is no accident that
these are precisely the segments
of the Argentinian power
structure which are most firmly
controlled by the extreme right
right wing elements are anti-
Semitic, the Jewish role in these
cases is only a part of the reason
for the attention they have been
placed Jew in Argentinian public
THOUGH THE charges
against Gelbard remain am-
biguous, the Argentinian
newspaper, La Prensa, reported
that Gelbard, David Graiver,
who until his apparent death in a
plane crash in the summer of
1976 was the head of his family's
businesses, and the fugitive
American businessman Robert
Vesco had met in 1973 to discuss
a joint financial venture.
Another paper, La Nueva
Provincia, accused Gelbard of
acting as the initial link between
the Montoneros and Graiver.
Gelbard has been linked not
only to the Graiver case but also
to the equally complex and far-
reaching Aluar (Aluminios
Argentinos) case. In 1971,
Gelbard was the head of the
group which built a new smelter
for Aluar under a controversial
contract said to involve tax
exemptions and secret kickbacks.
Gelbard, those interested in
pursuing the case moved on to
the really big fish: former
President Alejandro Lanuase,
head of state in Argentina from
1971 to 1973, and the men who
served ss Defense Minister, Air
Force Commander, and Navy
Commander in the Lanuase
Once again, the links in the
case are murky. Ignoring,
however, the lack of clear guilt,
Lanuase waa arrested in early
May, and remained interred until
mid-June, as part of the in-
vestigation into the Aluar affair.
Virtually all of the arrests and
investigations noted above have
major (so-called) liberals in
receiving in the far right press. It
is not men such as Kovadloff,
Graiver and Gelbard who are the
ultimate targets, but, rather, the
Argentinian life, the men, such as
Lanusse, who have protested
against some of the most reac-
tionary policies of recent years.
Lanusse, for example,
alienated the far right by
denouncing the arrest of a group
of university professors in 1976.
The goal of the far right ap-
pears to be to Unk the present
government, that of Jorge
Videla, to the liberals and the
Jews, to imply that Videla's
government is involved in the
Graiver and /or Aluar affair, and
to thereby undermine Videla's
ability to remain in power.
WHILE SOME of the charges
directed against them may turn
out to be true, the Jews involved
have been mere pawns in a larger
game a power struggle bet-
ween the right and the far-right.
The Videla regime has been
forced to walk a fine line. It has
lacked the power and the will to
put down the far right, and has,
therefore, looked the other way
on numerous occasions when the
far right has used extra-legal
means. There have been no
arrests made in cases involving
the many bombings of
synagogues, Jewish schools,
homes, cultural centers and
Videla is, however, concerned
about international public
opinion and demonstrating that
he is still in control. One example
of an attempt to prove the extent
of his authority was Videla's

Argentinian Jews have at least
three alternatives open to them
at the present time: they can
leave the country, remain and
work within the parameters of
the currant government for a
more secure existence, or attempt
to improve their situation by
working outside of the
established framework.
THE NUMBER of people who
have opted to emigrate has thus
far been small. Some, such as
Kovadloff, have decided that
they must leave Argentina in
order to protect themselves. For
the bulk of Argentinian Jewry,
however, the costs of emigration
in both financial and emotional
terms, is higher than they are
willing or able to pay.

Who's Got Three?
By Rabbi Max L. Forman, D.D.
Temple E manu-EI of Palm Beach
Harry Golden, in one of the
books from his prolific pen,
recalls that in the early days of
the movies, there were neighbor-
hood cinemas that displayed this
sign: "Admission Price for
Children 2 for 6 cents."
Incredible as it may seem, there
were families that could not
afford to give their children more
than two cents for the movies,
leaving them no alternative but
to find a "wealthy" partner with
three cents. Thus, it was a
common sight, in the line in front
of the box office, to see a number
of children marching up and
down, calling, "Who's got
? Question Box?
Question: What is the origin
and basis in Judaism for the
obligation to pray?
Answer: According to Mai-
monides, prayer is an obligation
which is directly commanded in
the Bible. The commandment in
the Book of Deuteronomy "to
serve Him (the Almighty) with
all your heart" is interpreted to
mean that a Jew is obligated to
pray to the Almighty. Prayer is
the means by which a Jew serves
the Almighty with his heart.
According to some authorities
prayer is a means of acquiring a
greater amount and better
quality of benefits from the
Almighty (sefer ha-Chinuch).
IT IS also said that prayer is a
means by which a Jew affirms his
e ab-
faith that there is only
solute source of benefit
blessing, i.e., the Almighty.
Others say that prayer is a
means of man's recognition that
he needs the Almighty.
Some commentaries contend
that prayer is a means of sacrifice
on the part of man. Indeed,
prayer always accompanied the
sacrifices in ancient times.
ALSO. WHEN a Jew prays
and acknowledges that his only
hope is the Almighty, he sacri-
fices his pride and self-esteem.
Prayer, which takes effort and
time, is thus likewise a sacrifice
of man's time and energy.
Some also say that prayer
serves as the connecting link
between man and the Almighty.
It is the bridge through which the
human-divine relationship is
experienced by man.
Still others maintain that
prayer is the means of man's self-
expression. While man may not
be ready to express his innermost
feelings by confiding in other
people, his prayer to the
Almighty gives him a mode of
expression in the private and
direct relationship between
himself and the Almighty. The
chance to express himself cleans
man of his fears and appre-
hensions. A person who has not
learned how to pray and who
craves a means of self-expression
finds himself indeed frustrated,
confused and disappointed.
ALSO, SOME say, that the
experiential feeling man has in
the course of prayer opens up for
him wider horizons and broader
perspectives thus eliminating
that "closed-in" feeling through
which man feels so crowded in
and limited in his vision.
Through prayer, his reach
transcends the ordinary
limitations of time and space and
he becomes, somewhat like his
Creator, an immoral and com-
paratively infinite being, thus
reaching the intended status of
man as the "image of the
family names) are recorded in a
Jewish bill of divorce (i.e., a
Answer: Although there were
some authorities who proposed
the inclusion of family names in a
Jewish bill of divorce this was not
accepted. A number of reasons
have been advanced for this
First, since Jewish law has the
technical insistence of including
all aliases, nicknames of both
original and vernacular names,
etc., it is considered that the
inclusion of these names is
enough to make an un-
mistakeable identification of the
parties involved.
SECONDLY, since the wife's
surname might change when she
remarries, confusion may result.
(Also some divorced women
choose to re-adopt their original
family names which they used
before marriage.) A second
reason stated by some authorities
(e.g. Rabbi Moshe Feinstein)
claims that possible errors might
ensue in the spelling if surnames
were used.
Some also claim that since a
variety of persons share the same
surname in the family (but never
the same first name in the im-
mediate family), some confusion
may result.
It is also worth noting that
surnames were generally not used
by Jews prior to the Middle Ages
thus the original identification
did not include them.
From a psychological point of
view, this may have been very
bad training for the children. The
"two-centers" could easily have
developed an inferiority complex,
or could have become keenly
class-conscious, bitterly resentful
of society's divisions between
rich and poor, "haves" and
"have-nots." In all likelihood,
however, they learned some
valuable lessons about life which
were of great value to them
throughout their years.
SURELY, IT must have borne
home to them that no person is
sufficient unto himself alone. In '
the theater of life, only he is
admitted who is ready to co-
operate with his fellowman. Even
the "three-center" needs his less
affluent comrade to gain ad-
mission. Thus, wherever one
turns, in every walk of life, in
every human enterprise, "Two
are better than one, because they
have a reward in their labor"
(Koheleth). All our significant
relationships involve a partner-
ship employer and employee,
teacher and pupil, husband and
wife, parent and child.
Equally important was the les-
son that in order to get one must
be ready to give. It is useless to
cry, "Who's got three?" unless
one is prepared to contribute two.
None is so lowly in the scale of
human undertakings that he need
appear before God or man em-
ey handed. No one need be a
ggar at the table of life; each
has something to offer, however
small or trivial it may seem. The
world responds warmly to him
who stands up and says, "This is
all I have, but I am prepared to
give it." The answer, likely as
not, will be, "Get in line, buddy,
I've got three."
Synagogue life is a partnership
community life is a partner-
ship: religious leaders and
congregants, officers and mem-
bers, workers and contributors.

The writer claims that Israel is
"a militaristic state whose
military build-up has gone far
beyond the requirements of
defense." The "trend in U.S. aid
might have presented few
military risks" unser former
Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin or
Labor Party leader Shimon Peres
and "might well have contributed
to peace," the article says.
After Rabin's fall, it continues,
"most U.S. experts saw Peres as
having the strength to replace
Rabin with a man the army and
people would trust to negotiate.
Peres could, as a conservative,
gradually approach the PLO and
make concessions on the Golan
Heights that Israel's growing
military strength would permit.
ACCORDING to the writer,
the U.S. "cannot react to Begins
election by reversing its policies
and cutting its aid because of
morality, history and domestic
politics." The writer refers to
"the West's real collective guilt
for the Nazi Germany Holo-
caust" and the failure of the U.S
| to come to the aid of European
Jews before and during World
War II.
However, he says, the
American Jewish community
"seems determined to react from
fear rather than thought. It not
only does not examine the U.S.
and Israeli relations with suf-
ficient independence, it is too
prone to over-react to any at-
tempt to do so by others and

groups seem willing to use anti-
Semitism and the Holocaust as a
moral club."

paralysis is also a vicious circle"

THE ARTICLE claims that
American Jews "lack leadership
and information from the
Administration and Congress"
and "Begin seems to lack Peres'
ultimate practicality and
restraint." The writer warns that
Begin may "actually seek the
political and military destruction
of the PLO and also permanently
seize control of the West Bank
towns and territories that have
no desire to be part of Israel."
The U.S. "has potential tools to
change the situation," he writes.
AS EXAMPLES of those
"tools," the writer says, "Begin
is a terrorist, and the U.S. can
exploit the fact that there is no
'moral' difference between an
Israel led by a 'patriot' like Begin
. and a PLO led by a 'patriot' like
i Arafat."
Furthermore, Cordesman
j writes, the "The U.S. can attack
I Israel's refusal to talk with the
PLO in a way it could never do
when Israel was led by David
Ben Gurion, Golda Meir or Yitz-
hak Rabin."
He recommends that the U.S.
can freeze aid levels in current
dollars and reduce credits and
other tacit economic support and
indirect subsidies to Israel. It can
"make clear in many different,
politically acceptable ways that
Begin endangers Israel's lifeline
to the U.S." and "can probably
