A Momentous Event
The event was momentous. What other word can
describe it? After thirty years of existence, it does seem
that the walls between Israel and the Arabs has begun to
come tumbling; down.
At least, they have begun to come tumbling,down
between Israel and Egypt.
The appearance of Egyptian flags flying side by side
with the Israeli flag in Jerusalem over the weekend sym-
bolized the momentous event the visit of Egypt's
President Sadat to the Holy City for talks with Prime
Minister Begin and an address by Sadat to the Knesset.
There is no doubt that President Sadat had his own
political, economic and military reasons for the bold and
courageous step that he took in offering to come to Israel.
There is also little doubt that he did not say anything
striking before the Knesset that anyone well schooled in
the controversy could not have easily predicted.
In fact, so predictable was Sadat's talk, that some
Israelis felt he was not speaking to them, but to the other
Arab nations. This may well be true. But it is the fact of
his appearance that is significant not what he said for
the record.
Furthermore, what he and Prime Minister Begin said
for the record probably bears only minor relationship to
what the two new-found friends said to one another in
private and for for the record.
The fact of Sadat's appearance is the primary issue
because it gives de facto recognition to the State of Israel.
And, in coming to Jerusalem, President Sadat has also
given de facto recognition to Jerusalem as Israel's capital
a gesture of which not even Israel's closest ally, the
United States, can also boast.
In all, the Sadat move was bold and brave. It is the
most stunning occurrence in Israel's history, including
Sadat's own attack on Israel on Yom Kippur of 1973, since
the founding of Israel. However cautious one may want to
be in interpreting the visit, one must be more optimistic
about Israel's future as a consequence of it than ever
Repayment of Good Faith
As a gesture of faith and good will to the Vatican,
leaders of the Government of Israel acceded to the release
from prison of Archbishop Hilarion Capucci after serving
only three years of a 12-year sentence.
Capucci's crime? He was convicted on charges of
arms smuggling in Jerusalem and collaboration with
Palestinian terrorists.
Now it seems that Israel's good faith is being repaid
in a strange way. Capucci may well be appointed assistant
bishop of Brazil, and that spells trouble for the 4.000-odd
Syrian and Lebanese members of the Melchite Church
It also means new contacts with a growing force of
rabid anti-Israel persons and organizations stirring up
terrorist sentiment in Brazil and other Latin American
Bishop Elias Cueter. leader of the Melchite Diocese in
Sao Paolo, has declared that "I do not think he should

We agree.
Step Against Terrorism
France's extradition of Klaus Croissant to West
Germany where the radical lawyer is accused of im-
properly helping the Baader-Meinhof terrorists, who were
his clients, should be welcomed as another forward step in
increasing international cooperation against terrorism.
Yet the incident does raise one nagging question.
France agreed to the extradition reportedly because the
case had become a test in the relations between the two
countries. Paris did not want a diplomatic break with
Bonn over the Croissant affair.
Bonn has repeatedly refused to extradite any of these
rrimimtln whn had been tried in absentia by French courts.
Now the Croissant case has given France the opening
to make its demands even stronger. Not to do so would
show an unwillingness by the French government to bring
to justice the murderers of French citizens both Jews and

U.S. Admits Being Taken by 'Surprise'
The United States admitted that
it was surprised by the sudden
Israeli-Egyptian summit meeting
in Jerusalem without its in-
fluence and sought to charac-
terize the dramatic change in
Middle East diplomacy as merely
a step toward reconvening the
Geneva conference which the
Carter administration has been
urging all along.
The State Department's chief
spokesman, Assistant Secretary
of State Hodding Carter, stressed
repeatedly during press briefing
that the Geneva conference was
the objective of the possible new
diplomatic moves and that
resolution of the Middle East
conflict required an overall
HE SAID that 'both parties''
Egypt and Israel "said they
are still committed to a Geneva
conference" and that Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat "put it in
the context of a speedy resolution
of procedural matters that should
not be allowed to block Geneva."
The Jerusalem meeting bet-
ween Sadat and Israeli Prime
Minister Menachem Begin "rep-
resents a moving along to
Geneva," Carter said.
He admitted freely that the
U.S. was taken unaware by the
developments. "We were not
ahead of events," Carter said. He
said the Jerusalem meeting was
"an initiative the two leaders
took themselves." and the U.S.
had "no information," and there
was "no consultation with the
U.S. on this kind of visit."
HE SAID that Secretary of

views without making it an
"announcement." He preceded
his remarks on the Middle East
with the announcement of a
forthcoming election in Bolivia
and Vance's trip to Latin
America for "several days"
beginning Sunday. This raised
the possibility that Vance would
be away from Washington when
Sadat visited Jerusalem.
Carter told reporters: "As we
say, we welcome such a visit as a
concrete contribution by the
leaders involved to moving

Interviewed on NBC-TV following the speeches, Kissinger
outlined what he believed had to result from the Sadat visit.!
"The problem is to emerge from this meeting with a sense on
both sides that they have made, maybe, some sacrifices, for the I
sake of peace, and a new relationship that opens a new era," he |
"NOBODY SHOULD leave with a sense that he made a
concession or that he gained a victory."
Kissinger, who reportedly talked by telephone to both
Sadat and Begin last week, said that if the two could "break
through the legalistic points and agree on what they want to
accomplish frontiers, security, the naure of peace they will
find some formulas to deal with it."
The former Secretary of State speculated that Sadat made
his dramatic trip to Israel because if the Geneva conference
convened with agreement only on procedural matters it would
lead to deadlock and a deadlock would lead to an "explosion" in
the Mideast.
HE SAID if Sadat leaves Jerusalem without having estab-
lished a means of proceeding toward a peace agreement at
Geneva, the situation will worsen.
Kissinger said he thought it was significant that Sadat in
his Knesset speech did not mention the Palestine Liberation
Organization and that in calling for a Palestinian state, the

(JTA) The United Synagogue
of America, the congregational
arm of Conservative Judaism,
has refused to endorse "Mercaz,"
a Zionist organization recently
founded to express the aims of
the Conservative movement
within the Zionist movement in
The biennial convention, at-
tended by 2,000 delegates from
830 congregations in the United
States and Canada, after a long
and bitter debate, removed the
question from consideration by
voting overwhelmingly to table a
resolution which would have
endorsed the organization.
mention the organization. Mercaz
(Center, in Hebrew), by name
which has already been formed
and which has Rabbi Stanley
Rabinowitz of Washington,
president of the Rabbinical
Assembly, the association of
Conservative rabbis, as pro-tern
chairman, and Rabbi Bernard
Raskas of St. Paul, as pro-tern
chairman of the governing

"Movement for the Reaffirm -
ation of Conservative Zionism."
Raskas. who participated in the
debate and Rabbi Wolfe Kelman.
RA executive vice president,
declared that the United Syna-
gogue's action would not halt the
new organization.
Moth men declared that Mercaz
does not depend either on the
endorsement of the United Syna-
gogue, the RA or any other
element of the Conservative
movement. Membership in
Mercaz is on an individual basis
of adherence to Conservative
Judaism, it was explained.
THE TWO rabbis said that the
organization, which was launched
at the RA convention at
Grossingers last March, already
has more than 1,000 members
and a budget and that it hopes to
have a founding convention
The formal debate, which pre-
ceded statements from the floor
and final action on the floor, had
Dr. Robert Gordis, professor of
Bible and of the Philosophies of
Religion at the Jewish Theo-
logical Seminary of America, the
Conservative school, arguing for
endorsement of Mercaz, and
Jacob Stein, former United
Synagogue president, against.
Gordis assailed the Orthodox
establishment in Israel, and the
politics which he said keeps it in
power and listed the disabilities
of the Conservative movement
and other non-Orthodox religious
bodies in Israel.
IF MERCAZ can only help
"guarantee freedom and equality
for Conservative Jewry in Israel,
if it can create a climate for all in .
the land." it would be enough.
Gordis declared. "There is
freedom of religion for everyone
in Israel but the Jews," he
Stein ridiculed Mercaz as a
"club" formed by a small group
of rabbis. "Why another Zionist
club" with a budget and a
bureaucracy to be added to the
already existing Zionist
organizations in the United
States?" he asked.
"Why should we participate in
a declaration of war against our
neighbors?" He was referring to
the Zionist Organization of
America, to which he has
belonged for the past 35 years,
and to Hadassah, of which his
wife is a life member.

Israeli Arabs Make Their First Pilgrimage to Mecca
Four Israeli Arab Moslems left
for Mecca, Saudi Arabia on what

community and the Saudis.

has refused to admit any citizens
of Israel to its territory regard-

granted finally only last week,
too late to organize a large-scale
pilgrimage because the
traditional pilgrimage season will

According to Dr. Moshel

to appear to be liberalizing their
policy but dragged their feet to

when he presented his invitation

cameras and throngs of reporters
in the Knesset secretariate room
on Nov. 15. He said he was ready
to extend similar invitations to
President Assad of Syria, King
Hussein of Jordan and President
Elias Sarkis of Lebanon.
Israel's invitation is not an
attempt to divide the Arab
states, Begin told reporters. Its
only purpose is to hold talks that
would eventually lead to peace
he said.
HE ADDED that Israel was
also ready to talk to the "true
and authorized spokesman of the
Arabs of Eretz Israel." He
stressed that he and Sadat
agreed that the latter's visit
would take place with no pre-
conditions, no threats. "We do
not threaten Egypt and we ask
that Egypt does not threaten
us," he said, adding that "we do
not nave an alternative to peace."
Sadat's initiative and Begin's
response to it were greeted by a
Knesset more united than at any
tune since the Yom Kippur War.
Former Foreign Minister Yigai
Alton, speaking for the Labor
Alignment opposition, declared
that "Perhaps this is the begin-
ning of the Arab awakening."
He said that "Perhaps the
President (Sadat) and with him
the other Arab leaders are begin-
ning to understand that there is
no military solution to the
Mideast conflict, that none of the
parties can impose the conditions
of peace on the other party and
that there is no alternative to
negotiations and to the political
ARYE ELIAV, leader of the
Sheli faction, a bitter opponent of
the Likud government, told the
Knesset, "Today I have an
opportunity to praise the Prime
Minister for his impressive and
quick response to the dramatic
gesture of President Anwar
Sadat." Only the three-member
Rakah Communist faction ab-
stained in the vote of approval for
Begin's invitation.
The prospects of an un-
precedented visit to the Jewish
State by the leader of an Arab
state had its genesis in remarks
by Sadat to his parliament the
previous week that he was ready
to go to Jerusalem to address the
He reaffirmed that offer at a
meeting with 14 U.S. Congress-
men, members of the House
Armed Services Committee,
visiting Cairo. Begin followed
with a dramatic television appeal
to Sadat and the Egyptian people
for peace. When Sadat said he
desired a proper invitation, Begin
said one would be forthcoming
INITIALLY, the Israelis
received these developments with
skepticism and some cynicism.
But as the initial reactions of
disbelief subsided, diplomatic
observers and the media began to
speculate about the possible
motives behind Sadat's offer to
go to Jerusalem and the possible
outcome of his visit. Most Middle
East experts believe that Sadat
decided to go all the way in an
attempt to break the Mideast
They observed that Sadat
faced grave economic and social
problems at home and is
genuinely desirous of a political
solution of the conflict with
Israel. He decided to go to Jeru-
salem, they said, in order to
convince the Israelis and his
fellow Arabs that peace is his
true intention.
On the other hand, Sadat's
mission may fail. In that case,
according to the pundits, the war
option will loom ag-iin. But all
agree that whatever its outcome,
if Sadat's visit takes place,
Middle East diplomacy will never
be the same again.
ONE INCIDENT that marred
the euphoria over the prospects
of the Jerusalem summit meeting
was a warning by Chief of Staff
Gen. Mordechai Gur, published
in a Yediot Achronot interview
on Nov. 15, that Sadat's offer
might be a smokescreen to cover
escalating war preparations by
Egypt's armed forces. The
Knesset ignored it. But the Prime
Minister's office issued a prompt
disclaimer, saying that Gen. Gur
had not consulted with the Prime
Minister although statements
such as his require clearance at
the highest political level.

Abuse Charges Labeled 'False'
Israel's Ambassador to the
Nations, Chaim Herzog,
anced as "one-sided, false,
and utterly unworthy of
consideration" a report by a
-nation committee of the
eral Assembly that charged
el with abuses in the occupied
lb territories.
| The committee, created in 1968
(investigate Israeli practices"
the territories, consists of
Senegal, Sri Lanka and Yugo-
slavia, none of which has diplo-
matic relations with Israel. The
fact was noted in Herzog's state-
ment released here Nov. 8.
HE CHARGED that the re-
port "is based on hearsay, un-
substantiated evidence and
reports to the total exclusion of
Israel's side of the case." He said
"Israel does not collaborate with
this committee because, as will be
recalled when it was established
in 1968. Israel requested that it

Chanukah, A Time of Hope
Chanukah lifts our spirits and
brings joy to our hearts. It is the
Festival of Lights, and light has
always been a beautiful symbol
for our people. The one indis-
pensable symbol in every syna-
gogue is the Ner Tamid, the
Eternal Light, which bums
perpetually before the Holy Ark.
Chanukah reminds us of a
great victory of the forces of light
over the forces of darkness. It
relates how a small band of Mac-
cabees defeated the Syrian hosts.
Such is the special property of
light that no matter how much
darkness you bring to bear
against one solitary candle, the
light of the candle will not be
extinguished Such also is the
power of truth and justice. They
are as indestructible as the light
which represents them.
The Bible tells us, "The
Mitzvah is a lamp and the Torah
is a light." The Syrians at-
tempted to extinguish the light of
Torah and Jewish tradition, and
they failed. Todav. too. the at-
tempt has been made on an inter-
national scale to discredit the
Torah and the Mitzvot and to
defame the Jewish way of life.
Not too long ago a resolution of
the United Nations equated
Zionism with racism, an old ploy
which did not succeed in the days
of the Maccabees. But the
present day rhetoric will not
succeed any more than that of
Antiochus, the madman of old.
The light of truth and justice will
prevail against all the forces of
The Festival of Chanukah
reminds us that the few need not
fear the many if they face their
enemies with courage and with
dedication. The Has mo ne axis
fighting alone defeated the
mightiest empire of that day. We
are not alone today. We have
friends among the democracies of
the world, and even among those
African and Asian nations who
vote against Israel, there are
many who are secretly with us
and only temporarily succumb to
the pressure of Arab oil and
Communist intrigue. When the
big lie is hurled against our
people, when we, the historic
sufferers from racism and racial

discrimination are accused of
that which was the bane of our
existence and anathema to the
spirit of our Jewish heritage, it is
good to celebrate Chanukah and
to have this Festival remind us
that darkness will not extinguish
Chanukah reminds us of the
possiblity of the human spirit to
triumph over the greatest ob-
stacles. It should give us heart
and courage in the fight for the
security of Israel and for peace in
the Middle East. We have just
witnessed the unprecedented
visit of Egyptian President Sadat
to Israel to address the Knesset,
and the warm welcome he
received there. With the flags of
Egypt and Israel flying side by
side, much optimism was
generated as President Sadat and
Prime Minister Begin promised a
continuing dialogue toward a
?Question Box?
Question: Why does Jewish
law prohibit embalming?
Answer: The general basis for
this prohibition is the fact that
the deceased undergoes some sort
of disfigurement in the em-
balming process which is con-
sidered to be an insult to the
dead. Incisions are made over the
major arteries. In many cases
noses are trimmed, colored dyes
are injected, cheeks are puffed
out, plus a number of other
physical changes are made all
considered alterations of the dead
body and a desecration of the de-
ceased. Also, the blood is forced
out and thrown away instead of
buried. Some also disallow the
procedure because it interferes
with the natural decomposition of
the body thus disallowing nature
from taking its course. In those
very rare cases where embalming
is sometimes required by law, the
blood must be buried and great
caution taken so as not to dis-
figure the body in any way.
Question: Why does Jewish
law generally disallow cosmetic
Answer: Elective cosmetic
surgery such as "face-lifting" or
plastic nasal reshaping is
generally forbidden in Jewish
law. For one thing, it amounts to
having a person wound himself in
the surgical process. Since the
body is considered a holy entity
and a gift or a trust from the
Almighty, no unnecessary
wounding of the body is
allowable. Secondly, surgery
involves placing one's life in
danger of such things as infec-
tions, hemorrhaging, etc. Sur-
gery generally is allowed only
when one's life or health is im-
periled seriously enough to
warrant the surgery as a last
resort. If there were some com-
paratively serious medical prob-
lem either of a physical or psy-
chological nature, special per-
mission could be granted to allow
this type of surgery to take place
within the framework of Jewish
peaceable solution of the prob-
lems between their two countries
and the establishment of security
in the Middle East.
This significant and halting
step gives us hope and
reassurance that a genuine peace
is possible because it is so
necessary. The Book of Proverbs
reassures us that "The path of
the righteous is as the light of the
dawn, that shineth more .
more unto the perfect day "
the Rabbis tell us, will
redemption of our people come i
will come Uttle by little and hi
as the dawn becomes bright*
and increases in light, so will ou
redemption come Tittle by littU
but eventually burst forth in
of its glory and will fill the i
with light and with joy.
