TEL AVIV (JTA) The Israeli Army officially ad-
tted early this week that it used cluster bombs in south

re shelled.
FOLLOWING pressure from reporters, the Army
bkesman issued a statement saying, "In a number of cases,

utinued without interruption.
"Against these artillery units and nearby field positions

her details.
The State Department said Saturday that Israel had
lated restrictions on the use of the cluster bomb.
AT THE same time, a Department spokesman noted that
rael has told us they were used exclusively against military
feets and specifically artillery targets."
Meanwhile, Israel has apologized to the United States for
ploying the American-made anti-personnel weapon. Defense
lister Ezer Weizman met with the U.S. Ambassador Samuel
and they reportedly discussed that issue, as well as

of freedom, family and tradition for all Jews around the world.

Old Passion Play Script, After All
BONN (JTA) The newly -
elected Town Council of Oberam-
mergau, West Germany, intends
to present is famous Passion Play
in 1980 based on a much-criti-
cized anti-Semitic text that has
been produced for more than a
century, despite a decision by the
previous Council last February to
proceed with plans for a different
This follows an election last
month in which the play was the
central issue. Supporters of the
existing text were elected by a
majority of 12 to 5 seats with 75
percent of the votes.
MAYOR Ernst Zwink said in a
newspaper interview that the
Council would "not allow itself to
be dictated to from outside" and
would "reverse the February
decision at all costs."
However, the Council is still
being opposed by a group of
about 400 supporters of the other
script written in 1750 by a
Benedictine monk, Ferdinand
Rosner. The text the new Council
plans to use was written in 1860
by a priest named Joseph Alois
Daisenberger which blames the
Jewish people for the death of
The Rosner script maintains
that all mankind was responsible.
The pro-Rosner group, which
includes the play's director, Hans
Schwaighofer, and most of the
leading players previously chosen
to appear in 1980, is determined
to press ahead with its aim of
reforming the play by then.
MEANWHILE, in a television
interview here, Rabbi Marc
Tanenbaum, director of the
Department of Religious Affairs
of the American Jewish Com-
mittee, warned that not only
Jews but millions of American
Christians would "vote with their
feet" by boycotting Oberammer-
gau should it go ahead with
Daisenberger text.
Such a decision by Oberam-
mergau would also be "a signal to
the world that the Federal
German Republic is not in a
position to defeat the dark
powers the ultra-conservatives
and reactionaries who seek a
return to traditions of the Middle
Ages," he added.

Jewish Community Center Joins
Federation Family of Agencies
At a recent meeting of the
Board of Directors of the Jewish

ty, approval was given to accept
the Jewish Community Center of
the Palm Beaches, Inc., as a be-
neficiary agency. This will entitle
the center to derive financial sup-
port from the annual Federation
A series of meetings of the
Federation budget and social
planning committees and Center
representatives were held to re-
view the Center's application for
beneficiary status. It was pointed
out that during the past two
years, the Center has filled an es-
sential need, providing the Jew-
ish community of Palm Beach
County with programs for all
ages from pre-schoolers to senior
citizens. Center membership has
grown from 20 families to ap-
proximately 150 families.
SINCE ITS inception, the
Federation has provided the
community with services such as
a pro-school, Camp Shalom and
the Forum lecture series. These
programs will now be transferred
to the Center, who will be respon-
sible for their operation.

the Federation, stated, "This

A Special Prayer
The first Passover set the mood of hope for a people
whose destiny it was to develop a religion, a culture, a way
of life that has endured these thousands of years because
its essence has been freedom.
In every Jewish home, and in public observances
which have developed in recent years, the ancient story
with its message for all mankind will be told again this
Passover, and it will be as meaningful in 1978 as it was on
the journey to the Promised Land.
The establishment of the State of Israel 30 years ago
has not meant the end of the millennial Jewish quest. As
in every generation, in this we are engaged in the struggle
for the freedom of Jews in the Soviet Union. This year, as
we observe the Seder, we will add to it a special prayer for
those brave people fighting to keep alive our ancient her-
itage which gives them the insight and courage to contin-
ue their struggle.
Striking the Foe Again
But even if it is as effective in its sphere as was the
television production of Alex Haley's Roots in the cause of
the Negro martyrdom, what inevitably we must deal with
is the good-will of the .American people to open their
hearts, their intelligence and. ultimately, their sensibility
to the horror of the Hit lerian nightmare and to determine
that it shall never happen again, neither among us nor
anywhere else in the world.
To jog the people's memory is the Warsaw Ghetto
uprising, the first and one of the most potent counter-
attacks to the German juggernaut in the early war years.
In Warsaw, the Jewish community unmasked the greatest
of the anti-Semitic lies: that Jews are not fighters.
In Warsaw, the Jews struck the foe and died to a
man. woman and child in the cause of all humanity. If. as
part of its four-part series. Holocaust tells this story of
Jewish heroism well, tells it at least as wefl as it tells the
story of the Jewish martyrdom, then the production will
do its job as educator at a time when education is so sorelv
needed to strike the foe once again.
Problem-Not a Solution
The misguided group of people who call themselves
the Jewish Committee of Concern will harm the cause of
Israel, not help it. if thev go through with their announced
plans of harassing Egyptian diplomats in this countrv
The stated purpose of this New York-based group is to
disrupt American-Egyptian relations.
.American Jews are rightly concerned bv what thev
see as a ult by the United States in favor of Egypt in the
current Israeli-Egyptian peace negotiations. But even in
tHe unlikely event that this irresponsible group could
cause a break in US-Cairo relations, how would this help
Israel? Every person really interested in the future and
security of Israel knows it would, instead, do more harm
to the cause of peace which is what we all want for Israel.
Rabbi Alexander Schindler. chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major American Jewish
Organizations, denounced the plans bv the Jewish Com-
mittee of Concern by also pointing out that it will not
advance the cause of peace Wreckers of the peace are not
welcome, whether they wear sheets of Stars of David.

Unique Arab View of Borders
A REPORT in the press that,
by now, Arabs own some 26
percent of the mansions in the
exclusive Trousdale Estates
section of Beverly Hills, Calif.,
and that many of them are being
decorated into Arabian night-
mares corroborates similar
reports from London.
There, laundry hangs out to
dry in horrendous disarray from
posh second story windows,
making garish ghettos of once-
aristocratic residential areas.
THE REPORTS are being re-
peated in France and Germany
and, indeed, throughout the
western world, where Arabs in
the past were an eccentric rarity.
The economics of this
sociologic revolution are self-
explanatory and contain in them
a prophecy of the coming Arab
doom. It is no big satisfaction for
us here and now. suffering as we
are from the petrodollar squeeze,
to understand that the Arab
ascendancy must come to an end.
The history of all single-crop
civilizations attests to this
truism. Once the crop gives out,
or it becomes obsolete, or the eco-

military rectification, the single-

acknowledged that an American official furnished the Saudi
Arabian government with the names of American firms that
they might engage to handle a public relations campaign in this
country for the U.S. sale of F-15 warplanes to Saudi Arabia.
_ REPLYING TO questions on the matter. Department
spokesman John Trattner said, "We have no reason to believe
there was any impropriety of any U.S. official."
The State Department spokesman added, "I would say it
is up to the Saudi government, as any other government, to
make up its own mind as to which U.S. firms to hire to do its
public relations work in this country and who it retains."
Trattner confirmed that, in response to their request, the
Saudis were furnished with the names of several competent
firms that they might hire for public relations work but that
there was no explicit recommendation made of any of the firms.
"Heartfelt regards to the
members of your family."

Israel decided Sunday to resume
payments to the annual budget of
UNESCO, according to an of-
ficial Cabinet announcement.
The decision was approved by
the Cabinet following a proposal
by Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan that Israel pay $374,000
which represents its debts to
UNESCO for the last two years.
ISRAEL suspended payments
three years ago after UNESCO
adopted an anti-Israel resolution
which barred it from the activ-
ities of UNESCO's European
regional set-up.
This followed allegations by
Arab delegates that Israel was
engaged in archaeological work
which was altering the features of

LONDON Israel is believed
to have proposed to Egypt that
the borders between the two
countries should be quietly
opened even though peace has
not yet been achieved. However.
Egypt has conditionally rejected
the idea.
Evidence of this emerges from
statement by President Sadat
fast week to a conference of Third
world information media in
Cairo. There could be no open
borders between Egypt and
Israel at this time because the
two countries still spoke different
languages. Sadat said.
HOWEVER, he did not rule
out the idea entirely, since he
added: "When we can speak one
language with Israel, then that
moment will mark the beginning
of the negotiations between the
two countries.'*

Robyn Spear: Retarded
Women-Child Overcomes
God's Little Mistake
When Mickey Spear speaks of
his 29-year-old mentally retarded
daughter. Robyn, he says his
"sweetheart'" is one of "God's lit-
tle mistakes."
When Harold (Rusty) Town-
send. Sunland Training Center's
behavioral specialist, speaks of
Robyn. he refers to a gentle "lit-
tle butterfly" whose sweetness
And when Robyn Spear speaks
of her specialness, she insists she
is not retarded. "I'm excep-
If both father and therapist are
right, so is Robyn.
LAST FRIDAY night, at Con-
gregation B'nai Raphael, this
woman-child proved that she is,
truly, exceptional.
Robyn sat on the bima, punc-
tuating the service with sighs
and smiles, craning to make eye
contact with her parents, with a
cottage-mate from Sunland. And
a half hour into the Shabbos eve
service. Cantor Jack Lemur
called upon Robyn to officially
become a Bat Mitzvah.
Robyn is the first female Sun-
land client to participate in the
religious rites of passage and the
first client (male or female) to do
so off the Center's grounds.
IT IS Mar. 21, an overcast day
and still a bit cool. The drive up
to meet Robyn Spear takes me to
the northwest corner of Dade
County where Sunland, like the
retarded people it houses, is
tucked away behind a metal
chain-link fence and a guarded
I am a few minutes early for
the 1:30 p.m. appointment, so di-
rector of volunteer services Dar-
lene Farrell takes time to discuss
Sunland, its clients and Robyn.
Of the 527 residents, there are
perhaps 30 to 50 persons partici-
pating in the Jewish Tihvah pro-
gram sponsored by the Southeast
Region of United Synagogue of
America. Estelle Slomowitz, who
is the region's director of special
projects, has had Robyn in these
special holiday classes since 1972.
Due to a lack of funds, there is a
gastronomic and festival ap-
proach to Judaism instead of on-
going study.
ROBYN'S participation in re-
ligious activities is part of Sun-
land's directed effort at "normal-
izing" her life. Farrell says that
clients are trained "for individual
goals" rather than simply being
Robyn has never been ware-
housed in a snake-pit or shuffled
like some superfluous bit of pro-
toplasm. At Sunland for 10 years
now. she has only previously
lived at home and at one private
The time for our meeting is
now overdue. Mickey Spear,
upon arrival, is called away to
discuss a problem with Rusty
Townsend. I am beginning to
have a mind's eye picture of Ro-
byn through Farrell's descrip-
tion, but I am not to meet her on
this day.
SUBJECT TO periodic tan-
trums and disruptive behavior,
Robyn has been misbehaving.
She is upset that she cannot
withdraw her savings from Sun-
land's on-Center bank. (Clients
are paid for their work in therapy-
oriented activities.) Just that
morning, she has struck out in
anger and frustration. Although
she is too weak to actually hurt
anyone, her behavior was of an
unacceptable violent nature. She
had to be subdued, gently re-
Townsend explains in intense,
choked terms that to go ahead
with the interview would provide
Robyn with "positive reinforce-
ment" for her anti-social behav-
ior. In spite of the fact that Sun-
land, now searching for its eighth
director, could use any good pub-
licity it could get, in spite of the
desire to encourage Robyn's reli-
gious activities, Townsend was
wrestling with what in the
long run would be best for his
I am embarrassed that he even
feels the need to explain his re-
fusal to me.
THAT NIGHT, I speak to
Mickey Spear about our aborted
attempt to publicize Robyn's
achievement. I receive his per-
mission to use all the information
I gather even the unpleasant
and unflattering. He hopes to de-
monstrate that, although their
situation is not ideal, other par-
ents may gain an appreciation of
what possibilities exist for the re-
The Spears did not know that
their child was different in her in-
fancy. The first-born of three
daughters, Robyn's learning
problems became apparent at age
"Towards the end of kinder-
garten," Mickey Spear recalls,
"the teacher said Robyn was not
able to learn." The most frustrat-
ing problem, initially, was that
"10 different doctors gave 10 dif-
ferent answers" to their ques-
tions. The Spears would go to
sleep hoping that "the following
morning Robyn would be nor-
IT WAS not to be. The confir-
mation came finally at New
York's Maimonides Hospital
when Robyn was a teen-ager. Al-
though Betty Lee Spear was in
her early 20s when Robyn was
born, it was determined that
there had been brain damage at
So, the Spears have learned to
be grateful that Robyn can read
music and tentatively play the
piano, type if just a little, even
though she cannot concentrate
long enough to be tested.
"We squeeze the most out of
the good things," says her father.
There are frequent flare-ups, like
the one that day over a bank
book. "We forgive her and wait
for the next flare-up."
OUR NEXT appointment is
arranged for the following Tues-
day. The day is wet, nasty and
unseasonably cold. I have mis-
givings that this trip, too, may
come to naught.
Mickey Spear and I drive to
Rose Cottage on Sunland's cam-
pus, where Robyn lives. The
stucco bungalow contains two
dormers, dark but neat, a large
airy living room, a college-type
community bathroom, an unused
kitchen and a control room for at-
tendants and house parents.
Robyn comes to greet us im-
mediately, suitcase in hand. I am
startled by her appearance. I ex-
pect a young woman near my
own age and build. I am intro-
duced, instead, to a slight, little
girl-woman dressed in an orange
and white polyester dress covered
with a tattered, hand-knitted
She is wearing little girl ank-
lets and loafers. Her light brown
hair coils softly and flatly against
her scalp. She speaks with a slur,
a slight speech impediment. She
wants to go home. Her father ex-
plains that she will go home the
week prior to her Bat Mitzvah.
PRIOR TO our formal inter-
view, we seek out Rusty Town-
send to answer some specific
questions. Townsend prepares a
release for Robyn to sign. He ex-
plains to her that she is agreeing
to a newspaper interview by talk-
ing to me. If there is anything
said that she does not want in
print, she is to say so. Townsend
has us all sign the agreement "to
protect Robyn's interest."
Townsend prefers not to "talk
in mental ages" or I.Q. numbers.
"For someone who doesn't un-
derstand mental retardation, fig-
ures are deceiving." he explains.
Robyn is developmentally dis-
abled within "the mild range of
retardation." Academically, she
functions "on a grade school
Again, Townsend prefers not
to be too specific. Her social be-
havior, her adaptive behavior
have "progressed immensely,"
but there are still self-help and
self-care skills which Robyn must
master. Townsend refers to the
poncho for which Robyn has a
"fixation." Explanation of Ro-
byn's piecework in Sunshine Cor-
ner (she makes greeting cards
which are sold to the public) and
her savings causes another up-
setting discussion of her savings
account. She wants her money.

drive to Congregation B'nai Ra-
phael for a Bat Mitzvah lesson
with Cantor Jack Lerner.
Cantor Lerner, since the tem-
ple released Rabbi Victor Zwel-
ling from the pulpit, has been
both chazzan and rabbi to the
congregation. He also privately
tutors learning-disabled young-
sters for Bar and Bat Mitzvah.
Robyn has been his first mentally
retarded student. He discounts
any unusual credit.
"I am just doing what anyone
else would do. And Robyn is do-
ing a portion of what any other
girl would do on a Friday night in
a lot less quantity."
He instructs Robyn to begin
reading "nice n' slow n' clear."

In spite of Robyn's awareness
and Townsend's encouraging
progress report, Mickey Spear
notes that his daughter's slurred
speech and occasional seizures
only began nine years ago. Her
imitative behavior suggests re-
gression, he thinks.
I hesitantly ask what will hap-
pen to Robyn in the years to
come as her parents age. Without
mincing words, Mickey says that
concern is why she is at Sunland
now. "The one fear in the mind of
anyone who has this kind of child
is that no one is to consider tak-
ing her into their home." The
mixture of love, fear and pain is

Matzah of Hope for Soviet Jews
John Moss, chairman of the Soviet Jewry Task Force,
requests that the following passage be included in your family's
Passover Seder:
"This Matzah, which we set aside as a symbol of hope for
the Jews of the Soviet Union, reminds us of the indestructible
links that exist between us.
AS WE observe this festival of freedom, we know that
Soviet Jews are not free to leave without harassment; to learn of
their past; to pass on their religious traditions; to learn the
languages of their fathers; to train the teachers and the rabbis of
future generations.
We remember with bitterness the scores of Jewish prisoners
of conscience who sought to live as Jews and struggled to leave
for Israel the land of our fathers but now languish in
bondage in Soviet labor camps. Their struggle against their
oppressors is part of an ongoing effort, and they shall know that
they have not been forgotten.
As Soviet Jews assert themselves they are joined by all who
are aroused by their affliction. We will continue until they
emerge into the light of freedom."

UJA Mission Visits Israel
By Greer Fay Cashman
It was the worst of times, for
all Israel was still reeling from
the shock of the terrorist attack
in which more than 30 innocent
civilians were slaughtered.
Yet it was the best of times,
because here was conclusive
evidence that the Jewish people
will not passively accept
brutality inflicted by others an
because, once more, world Jewry
demonstrated the strong bonds
of their blood relationship with
Israel's people.
A UJA "Israel Today" mission
arrived at Ben-Gurion Airport
two days after the tragedy. Not
one of its 115 participants had
withdrawn. "Of course we were
concerned," said Sanford L. Hol-
lander of Newton, N.J., a member
of the UJA executive committee
who led the mission. "But we
were determined to demonstrate
that the PLO cannot decide when
Jews will come to Israel."
When the group traveled north
from Tel Aviv, they saw the
burnt-out wreckage of the hi-
jacked bus, with thousands of
glass splinters littering the
bloodstained road. Every day
during the week-long mission,
they encountered funerals of the
victims of the massacre or of
young soldiers who had fallen in
the action against terrorist
strongholds in southern
The Americans paid their
respects at the funeral of 14-year-
old Revital Aharonowitz in
Haifa. Some were at first
reluctant to go, afraid of im-
posing themselves on the tragedy
of the family. "But we finally
agreed that this was not just an
attack against an isolated group,
but against all Jews," said Hol-
lander. "And, since we are a part
of the Jewish people, it was our
obligation to go to the funeral
and share in the grief."
EVERYONE of the mission
members half of them first-
time visitors to Israel wanted
to make the most meaningful
possible personal contribution to
the beleagured people of Israel.
Listening to the sounds of
shooting from the Golan Heights,
and locking out over the smoke-
filledAillages of Lebanon, "we
wanted to give something more
than our moral support and
humanitarian dollars to build life
in Israel," said Hollander. "We
wanted to give something of our-
selves, of our physical beings."
As a universal-type donor,

A member of a recent UJA "Operation IsraeF' Mission donates
blood in Jerusalem to help the injured in the recent PLO raid.
Chester, Conn., was the first of
scores of mission participants to
be processed. "It gives me a
great feeling to know that my
blood can help almost anyone,"
he said. "I'm proud to be leaving
something of myself in Israel."
MARK Ruderman and his 16-
year-old son Eric lay side by side,
while blood passed from their
right arms into small plastic
bags. In his hometown of Hart-
ford, Conn., Eric is considered
too young to give blood.'I guess
they need it more in Israel," he
said, "and this is my opportunity
to do something worthwhile."
What he may not have known
was that boys younger than he
fought in Israel's War of Inde-
pendence, and that the average
age of Israel's latest casualties in
Lebanon is 19.
None of the Americans will
ever know to what extent their
blood helped to save the life of a
wounded soldier. What they do

stronger bond, a truer blood

Unique Arab View of Borders
Continued from Page 4
bv ihis term ... they organize
relationships with each other
According to closed social
systems rather than spatially .
Strangers and enemies are very
finseiv linked, if not synon-
ymous, in Arab thought.
Trespass in this context is a
natter of who you are, rather
than a piece of land or a space
with a boundary that can be
denied to anyone and everyone,
friend and foe alike."
This geopolitical fact of Arab
life, this indifference to boun-
daries, as Hall sees it, derives
from the Arab's emotional at-
titude toward space generally.
Arab spaces inside their upper
middle class homes are tre-
mendous by our standards. They
avoid partitions because Arabs
do not like to be alone (italics
his). The form of the home is such
as to hold the family together
nside a single protective shell,
ecause Arabs are deeply in-
volved with each other."
THIS SHOWS itself in Arab
olfaction, which Hall observes
occupies a prominent place in the
life of the Arab. As opposed to
the westerner, who finds it bad
manners at best and hideous at
worst, "Arabs consistently
breathe on people when they talk
... To smell one's friend is not
only nice but desirable, for to
deny him your breath is to act
Obviously, then, our western
diplomats in contact with their
Arab counterparts appear to be
ashamed if not downright timid
and these petrodollar days
capable of being intimidated.
In the larger sense, 'therefore,
there is no physical privacy as we
know it in the Arab family, and
Hall declares, "not even a word
for privacy" exists.
IS THERE any wonder then
that the Arabs do nothing about
their refugee camp ghetto world
in which they are held not by
force, not even by the smoulder-
ing political desire for revenge,
but simply by a racial charac-
teristic so different from our own
fierce western pride in the need
for independence and occasional
privacy and even anonymity that
it escapes our understanding?
What we do is to interpret this
torpor into our own terms, and
we arrive at wrong conclusions, a
sympathy for the victimized
Arab who has been herded into a
life of misery.
Hall observes that the Arab
failure to understand privacy as
we understand it governs our
own failure to deal effectively
with the Arabs politically. When,
for example, the State Depart-
ment announces a policy of
Middle East even-handedness, it
, is incensing to the Arab, who
believes that "to fail to intervene
(italics his) when trouble is
brewing is to take sides"
THE NEW Carter propensity
to lecture Prime Minister Begin
on his alleged deficiencies now
demonstrates to the Arab, not
that Carter is taking sides, but
that he is showing interest, a
change in attitude the Arab can
certainly appreciate. This is par-
ticularly true because the
struggle is over borders, con-
stricting space, which Israel as a
western nation in these terms
desperately desires, and the
Arabs prefer not to understand.
Hall's study can not, of course,
explain just how appreciative the
Arab would be were Carter, say,
to lecture President Sadat in the
same way that he lectures Prime
Minister Begin. Even if one can
well imagine what the result
would be, all theories aside, the
insight is nevertheless valuable.
It explains Israel's and our own
inability to discuss borders with
the Arabs on any basis, Res. 242
Perhaps the most penetrating
and indeed terrifying observation
Hall makes is of an Arab col-
league who is the author of an
Arab-English dictionary and who
reported one day: "I have spent
the entire afternoon trying to find
the Arab equivalent of the
English word, 'rape.' There is no
such word in Arabic." The reason
is that there is no such concept.
FOR HALL, this emerges from
the "Arab tendency to shove and
push each other in public and to
feel and pinch women in public
. they must not have any
concept of a private zone outside
the body."
If we can conceive that sexual
rape is only one form of taking by
force, or against another's will,
that political and now even socio-
logical rape are equally serious
offenses, the implications within
the context of any Arab
hegemony are close to clair-
In all, Hall's study makes
remarkable sense in an effort to
understand the Middle East
impasse today from terrorism,
through periodic piratical rape of
Israel's boundaries, through the
struggle over fixed borders,
through the impacted refugee
camps which may well be a
natural Arab condition of living.
It certainly explains the night-
marish recreations of the old-time
splendorous mansions of Beverly
Hills and the laundry hanging
out of London's once-posh

Passover: For Thought and Inquiry
The Free Synagogue
Boca Raton, Fla.
Passover, being the Festival of
Freedom, is especially suited for
thought and inquiry. Freedom
requires thought and question-
ing. Mah Nishtanah "Why are
we different?"
Because, when you are differ-
ent you underscore the unique-
ness of the individual who was
created in the Divine Image. Be-
cause the Children of Israel have
survived and can ask these ques-
tions thanks to the willingness of
past generations to swim up-
stream, to insist on higher ideal-
istic standards and to be different
regardless of the cost. Because
generations yet unborn will pon
der and ask questions even as we.
free men. think and question but
only if we will have the courage
and garner the dedication to be,
when necessary, Jewishly dif-
like free men not freedom from
responsibility but freedom for re-
sponsibility so we can live re-
sponsibly as Jews! Because in
our genes are the influences of
prophets, sages and martyrs
giants of the spirit and humble
men who chose to be different be-
cause our unbalanced world
needs the "different" message of
our heritage lest it destroy itself.
So, AfaA Nishtanah? Long live
the difference and thank God for
the difference.
As you and I sit down in free-
dom to enjoy the message of
Passover at the Seder, we must
remember that many persons
have been inspired to assess the
pricelessness of freedom.
The fight for freedom is an
endless battle. Its victories are
never final, its defeats are never
permanent. Each generation
must defend its heritage, for each
seeming conquest gives rise to
new forces that will attempt to
substitute fresh means of oppres-
sion for the old.
THERE CAN be no taken-for-
granted. assured, inherited val-
ues in a world of life and growth
every battle the fathers
thought finished will have to be
fought anew by their children if
they wish to preserve and extend
their freedom.
So long as the people do not
care to exercise their freedom,
those who wish to tyrranize will
do so; for tyrants are active and
ardent, and will devote them-
selves in the name of any number
of causes or gods, religions and
otherwise, to put shackles upon
sleeping men.
He who thinks with bis own
head is a free man. He who strug-
gles for what he believes to be
right is a free man. Even if you
live in the freest country in the
world and you are lazy, callous,
apathetic, irresolute, you are not
free, but slave.
HOW WE ache and well-know
the plight of Russian Jews. With
all persons of good will, we cry
out: "Let our People live as free
men or let them leave!" At this
season, we reflect on the needs of
Russian Jews.
Worth pondering is this
thought, too: Pdbple hardly ever
make use of the freedom they
have; for example, freedom of
thought; instead they demand
freedom of speech as a compen-
The children of Israel living in
the land of Israel today echo the
Rabbi Ben Rosayn
love of freedom. They value their
liberty and reluctantly find
themselves having to fight for
the right to live by their values
and heritage.
ALL THE while, the words
and sentiments of Golda Meir
ring in their and our ears: "When
peace and true brotherhood final-
ly descend upon Israel and its
neighbors, we will forgive the
Arabs for killing the Israelis, but
we will find it difficult to forgive
the Arabs for causing the Israelis
to have to learn to kill their
brothers, the Arabs."
We Jews, who live in freedom
must contribute now and always
of our means and strength to
support Israel in its quest for its
security and freedom. It is our
duty always to give them the be-
nefit of the doubt.
Wisely, have our sages reflect-
ed that "One can recognize the
character of a person and get an
index to it by observing him in
relation to his (a) drinking cup,
(b) his wallet and (c) his anger."
AT THE Seder, we proclaim
true freedom in its full meaning:
physically, spiritually and ethic-
ally. Accordingly, much can be
learned by observing the Jews'
conduct at the Seder.
By our cup: Passover, the holi-
day of wine and spring, tradition-
ally asks us to drink four cups of
wine and yet it has become a
By our wallet: Free and re-
sponsible people come to sit down
to the feast of freedom, the Seder,
knowing that their brethren and
others hunger for freedom from
want. Jews could not well swal-
low nor digest their food knowing
that others are hungry; and so we
contribute to funds and causes so
that our people, indeed all poeple,
may be free under God.
BY OUR anger: The Seder re-
counts our freedom from slavery
in Egypt and yet observe the ab-
sence of revenge or recrimination
for the enslavement and massa-
cre of their children, for the blood
and sweat shed by our ancestors.
Let the world observe us while
we might be in anger. When re-
venge have we taken of Spain for
the Inquisitions? What retalia-
tion have we taken of the Rus-
sians for its pogroms? Or of Ger-
many? It is for the Eternal to
judge and take revenge.
Jews are taught to forgive even
their enemies. Yes, we Jews are
certainly different from other
people and we are different be-
cause of the teachings of our
faith. Viva la difference!

In my last article, I discussed
some of the issues in an altogeth-
er too familiar phenomenon these
days the violent marriage.
In the case example men-
tioned, the wife had indicated a
reluctance toward leaving the
marriage, and the husband's par-
ticipation in treatment was virtu-
ally minimal. The question arises
"What can a professional do
under these circumstances?"
RECENT literature and exper-
ience from agencies dealing with
the abused wife and the "violent
marriage" suggest several ap-
proaches for the wife:
1. A recognition of her ambi-
valence is vitally important. This
ambivalence can be confusing
and alarming. It is probably a
new feeling of such intensity as
might never have been exper-
ienced before. She is torn between
thoughts of leaving a marriage,
and on the other hand feels that
her husband's positive qualities
may "even out" in the end
hence, "why shouldn't I stick it
In this situation, the ther-
apist's empathy for her situation
and feelings is matched equally
with the therapist's observations
of what is occurring.

2. HELPING find a way to
avoid the violence. In the many
violent marriages, the idea of
leaving simply is not present, on
the part of the victim. The ambi-
valence persists; however, there
is an increasing recognition of
"cause and effect." The wife,
with the therapist's aid, can be-
gin to see the circumstances un-
der which violence occurs and
The wife (and/or children's)
role in the violent episode is an
extremely delicate issue. Al-
though there may be a contrib-
utory aspect in the wife's behav-
ior, extreme care must be exer-
cised in discussing this. Facing
revealing truths is not always
easy; however, if adequate trust
and rapport exists between client
and therapist, the delineation of
the pattern may be accomplished.
The goal here is to strengthen
the victim's ability to "dodge"
the violence if this is what she
wishes, or is all that she can ac-
cept at this point.
3. HELPING the victim real-
ize that remaining in the relation-
ship is an option. The option may
be temporary or more or less per-
manent. The object is to help her
gain a sense of "mastery" over
her life. This may be something
she has not experienced for quite
some time. This sense of self-
worth and esteem should be de-
veloped prior to any decision to
leave. The development of this
feeling over a period of time may
mean all the difference in the
world insofar as realistic and ade-
quate planning for a departure is
concerned. In many cases a deci-
sion in this area occurs after ther-
apy has occurred.
A final note on this subject. I
have not mentioned children, to
any degree, in these two articles.
Some of you may be wondering
about that. While therapy occurs,
there certainly is an evaluation
proceeding in the therapist's
mind about the welfare of these
unfortunate victims. This is a
terribly delicate area as well.
The caseworker may decide
that the violent episodes go too
far. insofar as his ability to deter-
mine this is concerned. However,
the wife's decision to stay may
have to be supported; particular-
ly when the alternatives are very
carefully considered.
IN SHORT, the violence of
staying may very well have to be
weighed against the perils of
leaving, and the therapist is very
much caught up in this process.
Often, peer review and consulta-
tion on the case is helpful for the
caseworker and ultimately is be-
neficial for the family.

Can Eliminate Prejudice
Television can make a major
contribution toward the elimina-
tion of prejudice and bigotry by
engaging large audiences with
programs of quality that address
the human condition, Herbert S.
Schlosser, president and chief ex-
ecutive officer of NBC, said.
Schlosser, who accepted the
Gold Brotherhood Award from
the National Conference of Chris-
tians and Jews, warned that pro-
gress made by groups like the
NCCJ must not lull Americans
into believing that discrimination
and intolerance are things of the
THE BIGOTRY and prejudice
still alive in this country became
apparent to NBC, Schlosser not-
ed, after the announcement of
Holocaust, a nine-and-one-half-
hour original drama that NBC-
TV presented over four consecu-
tive nights. It was the story of the
persecution of Jews and other
groups who were systematically
destroyed by the inhumanity of
the Nazi regime.
"For weeks now," Schlosser
said, "hate mail has been trick-
ling into NBC from people who
have not seen Holocaust but who
condemn it as a Zionist plot and
Jewish propaganda.
"They are totally at odds with
the reactions of more than 30
ministers, representing a wide
range of Christian faiths, who
have previewed the program and
gave it their overwhelming praise
and support.
"PROTEST and pressure are
not new to television. Last year
NBC televised Jesus of Nazareth.
We worked closely with various
Christian and Jewish leaders who
previewed the film and found it
immensely sensitive and totally
"Yet various groups whose
members had not seen the film
circulated literature calling it
blasphemy and a distortion of the
life of Christ. After its broadcast,
the letters and phone calls we re-
ceived made Jesus of Nazareth
the most heavily praised program
in NBC's history."
Productions like Holocaust,
Jesus of Nazareth, The Autobi-
ography of Miss Jane Pittman
and Roots are programs everyone
can learn from, the president of
the National Broadcasting Co.
"BY NO means," he added,
"has television completed the
journey toward its most impor-
tant goal. Television must learn
better how to fulfill its task of en-
gaging large audiences with pro-
grams of higher quality and val-
ue. By quality I do not mean spe-
cialized programs designed only
for the elite. I mean finer crafts-
manship in writing and produc-
tion and content that can touch
the human spirit or say some-
thing about the human condition
that embraces us all.
"Television, at its best, and the
National Conference of Chris-
tians and Jews, can share some
similar goals. Each seeks to con-
tribute to a better understanding
of our times and our society so
that men and women of different
faiths, of different races and of
different backgrounds can live
together with mutual respect.
And so that these differences,
once understood, can become a
positive contribution to the qua-
lity of life in this land.
