Concerned About Ongoing Efforts
German Official Fears Series
May Hurt Relations With Jews
German Federal Republic's
consul general in Atlanta, and he
wonders with some degree of
anxiety what the effect of the
Holocaust series will be on his
government's relations with Jews
in the foreseeable future.
There is a considerable amount
of progress, in his view, that has
been made since the terrifying
Hitler years. Perhaps not so
much in the quelling of the terror
time alone has dulled that.
And certainly not in attempts to
whitewash the facts of history
themselves there has been no
official German effort in this
direction, and such efforts as
have been made elsewhere are
among right-wing and neo-Nazi
elements outside the Federal
Ingendaay refers is two-fold: It
Dr. Ernst Ingendaay
begins with the assertion that
"we (Germany) can not forget a
dark and criminal period in our
past; we must live with the
burden of it. But we have worked
so very hard since the Hitler
years to forge new links with the
Jewish community."
My own impulse is to believe
that a great German-Jewish
amalgam has been irretrievably
broken in art, science, politics,
literature, music, academics
that it can not be forged anew.
In my recent discussions with
the Federal Republic's Ambas-
sador to the United States Bemt
von Staden, there was the con-
sensus we struck that Germany's
Jewish community today is not a
young one, not a vibrant one, not
a growing one.
AND SO what can Dr. Ingen-
daay mean about forging new
links? Links with what?
I think what Ingendaay has in
mind is Germany's best in-
tentions. We can not, he says,
mitigate the past; but in a
Camusian sense, it is in Ger-
many's best intentions, not so
much toward German Jewry,
which is admittedly a remnant,
but toward world Jewry, that his

met over the weekend with three
representatives of the Peace Now
Movement, but there was no
meeting of minds.
The group, representing some
300 reserve officers who have
been urging a more flexible policy
on the government under the
slogan that an Israel at peace is
more important than a "Greater
Israel," was told by the Prime
Minister that he had no intention
of ever handing over the West
Bank and Gaza Strip to foreign
BEGIN insisted that his
policies were endorsed by the
electorate last May and he would
not abandon them. A spokesman
for the Peace Now delegation told
reporters afterwards, "We came
out of the meeting feeling that
the Prime Minister confirmed our
fears that he prefers a Greater
Israel to peace and that he is
motivated by ideological motives
which prevent him from making
any territorial concessions on the
West Bank for the sake of
When the delegates told Begin
that large segments of the Israeli
public shared their view that his
government was not doing
enough to achieve peace, the
Prime Minister reportedly
responded, "This government
has won the confidence of the
people. Would you expect it to
act contrary to the platform with
which it went to the elections?"
The members of the Peace Now
movement said they would con-
tinue th"ir campaign, neverthe-
less, to iften the government's

CJF Supports Wider Use
Of Charitable Deductions
I Israel's New President is Sephardi I
Testimony has been given to the
House Ways and Means Com-
mittee by a spokesman for the
Council of Jewish Federations
urKing support of legislation to
provide charitable tax deductions
for persons who take the stan-
dard deduction on their Federal
[ income tax return.
Norman A. Sugarman, a
member of the CJF Board of
I Directors, chairman of its en-
dowment fund committee and a
former assistant IRS com-
missioner, voiced support for HR
11183, introduced by Rep. Joseph
L. Fisher (D-Va.) and Rep.
Barber B. Conable (R-NY) and
co-sponsored by 10 other
members of the Ways and Means
Committee, which would permit a
separate charitable deduction
even for the 77 percent of tax-
payers who currently use the
| standard deduction.
HE noted that current
I Administration tax proposals
will "reduce the support of
charities and thereby hurt all
I needy people.
"The Administration's
[proposals would switch an ad-
ditional six million Americans to
the standard deduction, thereby
rewarding them for contributions
even though in fact they may
make no contribution what-
I soever,'' Sugarman stated.
He noted that the Council of
I Jewish Federations "is concerned
I about the trend in our tax laws
[away from support of charitable
institutions because we see this
trend undermining community
| responsibility."
THE expenditures for Jewish
I communal services total four
times the amount raised in
unfinished play on Jews during
the Spanish Inquisition.
In the course of his
distinguished political career, he
has suffered two major defeats
once as speaker of the Knesset
and, in 1973, in his bid for
President of Israel. That election
sparked a stormy debate and
some time after withdrawing
from the race, Navon remarked
that it is time that Oriental Jews

stated that any
contributions, thus developing a
multiplier effect since the ser-
vices contributions finance
generate additional support, he
Pointing out to the committee
that Jewish communal agencies
serve well over 1.2 million per-
sons annually with Jewish
reducing charitable support could
set off a chain reaction reducing
services to individuals
resulting in a need for govern-
ment to make up the lost funds in
order to continue needed services.
"This change (HR 11183)
would protect the charitable
deduction from further erosion
and would also extend the
charitable deduction to the full
spectrum of income classes,"
Sugarman testified. "It would
mean that charities could look
increasingly for support from
persons of moderate income as
well as the generous gifts from
upper income taxpayers."
IF THE Administration tax
proposals are adopted donors
may choose not to make
charitable gifts at all "thereby
hurting all needy people and
depriving them of assistance and,
as a result, impairing the well-
being of society," he added.
"People are better people if
they give," Sugarman concluded.
"Giving patterns affect the
quality of the community. The
time has come to renew the
encouragement to all taxpayers
for charitable giving by allowing
the charjtable deduction as a
deduction in computing adjusted
gross income."
Family Life Library Opens
Stephen Levitt, executive
director of Jewish Family and
Children's Service announced the
stablishment of a library of
nfnrmational pamphlets and
aaterials especially for
promoting improved family life
nd communications.
The pamphlets, which are
available on loan, free of charge,
over such diverse topics as:
[Talking It Over Before
ferriage'; "Parent-Teenager
Communication"; "Bridging the
jeneration Gap"; "How to
Jiscipline Your Children"; "The
Shy Child"; "Women's Changing
Place"; "A Look at Sexism";
"The Dying Person and the
"The materials available are
directed toward the lay-public
and are easy to understand,"
according to Levitt. "It is hoped
that many more families who
would like occassional guidance
on a particular topic, but who are
not interested necessarily in
establishing a counseling contact
with the agency, would utilize the
library materials.''
The JFCS office will loan the
materials to anyone who stops by
the office Monday Friday
between 9 a.m. 12 p.m. and 1

traditionally held by Sephardim.
His origins and the position of
Sephardim generally within
Israeli society are important to
him. "The argument that this is
the generation of the wilderness
and that the next one will fourish
is invalid," he wrote in 1973 on
the social ethnic gap.
"IF THERE is no change in
the environment, in housing
conditions, in the level of
schooling, and the general at-
mosphere in which the child is
raised, there is a strong
possibility that the son will fol-
low in his parents' footsteps
.... There is no community (in
Israel) which has not a con-
tribution to make nor is there any
which historically has failed
to make a contribution," he
He felt most strongly what he
wrote about the contribution of
Sephardim to Jewish life and
culture. Going back to his early
writing in the mid-1940's, he has
always written of Sephardic life
and customs. Because of this,
shortly before Independence Day
1967, Yossi Bannai and Rivka
Michaeli asked him to write a
Elay with Sephardic content for
[abima to perform on
Independence Day. The result
was well-received.
Later, singer Yehoram Gaon
asked him to write a text binding
together several Sephardic songs.
And on the first anniversary of
Jerusalem Day (the anniversary
of the city's reunification), he
wrote a story entitled Six Days
and Seven Gates, which was so
popular it was translated into
English and performed in the
United Sates and South Africa.
BUT HIS major literary
achievement came in 1970. "My
aim in writing The Sephardic
Garden and I admit it was too
ambitious was to give an
answer to the questions, What
makes, a Sephardi a Sephardi?
What is unique about him? What
makes him tick?" he said in an
interview after the muscial play's
Jerusalem premiere on Sept. 14,
"I had in mind presenting a
vast theme the glories of the
Golden Age, the expulsion from
Spain, tne Marranos, the
dispersion throughout Europe
and Africa. But I found after
some months that all this could
not be compressed into one play.
"I've always been infuriated by
the stereotypes of the Moroccan
Jew as a figure of fun, a
shamash" or a waiter, or else he
is a gangster or a delinquent. He
is made out to be very primitive,
fumbling with his words of
Hebrew. Moroccan Jewish life is
full of beauty and wisdom, for
those who understand it."
Continued from Page 1
HELPING TO foster this
understanding, he wrote in 1973,
"there are some basic principles
which we cannot surrender .
The common denominator must
be Jewish tradition, that
adhesive force which keeps all the
sectors and factions in this nation
together. Any culture
which cuts us off from the roots
of Judaism will always be a
foreign element in our midst."

As I grew up, I was made
weary with the constant
repetition of one million
Armenians cruelly slaughtered
by the Turks. If we didn't eat,
our mothers said. "The starving
Armenians-," and we awallowed.
The world is tired of hearing
tales of slaughter and man's
inhumanity. The all rightmks,
Jews and Christians alike, are
more and more turning a deaf ear.
The Christian world was in-
different to the slaughter of
Lebanese Christians by the PLO.
LETTERS to the editor advise
Jews to forget about the six
million murdered and live for
today. The Russian slaughterers
of tens of thousands of innocents
appear at Human Rights con-
ferences, and Carter con-
templates a friendly relationship
with Castro's assassination
factory. Idi Amin's genocidal
regime is honored at the U.N.
Hitler's atrocious assaults in-
cluded millions of Christian
innocents. Yet when we say
"Holocaust", it is considered a
Jewish affair.
But we shall not forget. And it
is our responsibility to see that i
the world remembers. Only by
reinforcing these terrible
memories can we hope to prick
humanity's conscience, to keep
ourselves particularly and the
world generally, alive to the
danger of the growth of new

7 he Jewish floridian of Palm Beach County
Israel's New President
Israel's new President Navon is a Sephardi. This is a
"first" -* an important "first" because Israel's
Sephardi Jewish community has said over and over again
that its member are treated as second class.
Even on a political level, the bitter comment has been
that Sephardi Jews make good police chiefs, meaning that
that is about as high as a Sephardi Jew can climb in the
Navon's election has changed all that, at least
symbolically. Like all other Israeli Presidents in the past,
Navon is no exception otherwise in the fact that he is an
intellectual giant in his field literature.
But his Sephardi origins can not be brushed aside
Sephardi Jewry has an ancient and distinguished
history. For example, among the Jews expelled from
Spain in 1492 was Judah Abravanel, son of the famous
rabbi and stateman, Don Isaac Abravanel. Sephardi Jews
can go on and on, embellishing the listing of their past.
In President Navon's election lies the hope that
finally the bridge will be gapped between two Israeli
Jewish communities and that one of them, the Sephardi,
will cease feeling that it has been relegated to a place of
second class.
Giving to CJA-IEF
In addition to the many communal activities in which
the Jewish Federation of Broward County is engaged
these days, its Combined Jewish Appeal-Israel Emer-
gency Fund campaign continues unabated.
Object: To remind us that the political crisis in the
Middle East aside, Israel's ongoing needs, those needs
that our community is dedicated to helping meet, must be
met with even greater generosity than ever before.
Reason: If increased levels of generosity are not
forthcoming, the forces currently operating on Israel to
reduce her to a splinter, to amputate her outer reaches will
misinterpret our true commitment to Israel and press even
harder to achieve their insidious aims.
What else can we say?
This should be commitment enough on our part to
give to CJA-IEF beyond our giving before. Let
Washington understand, let the Arab petrobillionaires
recognize that we are not reduced in our determination by
fear in precisely the same way that Israel is not reduced by
Let Washington and the Arab petrobillionaires know
that, to the contrary, we are bent on supporting Israel
more richly than we have ever supported her before. In
Israel's hour of need is all our need. In Israel's danger is
all our danger.
Through CJA-IEF we can meet the danger and
overcome it.
Footsie With Moscow
The Belgrade conference has ended. Its purpose was
to remind the Russians that they did not live up to their
commitments made at the Helsinki conference com-
mitments having to do with human freedoms.
At Belgrade, a basic human freedom went down the
drain because delegates to the conference were too chicken
to eyeball the Soviets on this issue. We have in mind
Soviet Jewry and their right to leave the country.
The very first time that Soviet Jewry was mentioned,
the Russians threw a tantrum, and everybody else went
into a sweat of silence. Let's not get the Rooskies upset
this seemed to be the theme of the conference and it
reminds us very much of the reaction of the Chamberlain
clan in Munich, when Hitler threw a tantrum and
Czechoslovakia went down the drain.
Our American delegate, Arthur Goldberg, as we
understand it, did tell the Soviets to knock off their act,
and the Soviets listened, but only briefly, because
Goldberg could get no other support for his gutsy deed.
Then what was Belgrade all about? It was pretty
much what Helsinki was all about: a soft-shoe routine,
playing footsie with Moscow.

GoldaMeir onHer 80th Birthday
London Chronicle Syndicate
What is it that has made Golds
Meir so formidable an Israeli
institution, he asks.
Any attempt to analyze the
source of her power inevitably
invites comparison with the
outstanding Jewish leaders of the
recent past. There were two in
our own time whose greatness
was manifest, Chaim Weizmann
and David Ben-Gurion. Both
towered above their fellow-men.
Each fitted the biblical
description of King Saul: "From
his shoulders and upward he was
higher than any of the people."
What of Golda who turns 80 on
May 3? To which group does she
I THINK she would produce
one of her rare blushes at the very
idea of being considered in the
same breath with Weizmann and
Ben-Gurion. As she herself says
and though one cannot always
trust what leaders say about
themselves, in this case I'm sure
Golda means it she never
relished the highest office and
never sought it.
She accepted the Premiership,
following the sudden death of
Prime Minister Eshkol. as a duty
and to preserve party unity. And
this occurred some four years
after her retirement from
Government (though not from
politics) and when she was past
70. She had always been content
to be a member of the team, and
had never aspired to the cap-
Yet if she is no Weizmann or
Ben-Gurion, she added her own
dimension to the Premiership,
and was soon commanding
enormous respect both at home
and abroad. I think that springs
from a rare combination of
SOME OF course are common
to all notable leaders, and
essential: single-mindedness, an
iron will, and the capacity to
make critical decisions. She
exudes an aura of innat*
strength. To these she adds
compassion (though she- can be
tough when need be), a basic
simplicity, and a down-to-earth
pragmatism. And she has the
common touch. It is the oom-
bination that is unique.
No matter where, when or with
whom, whether as Prime
Minister at a Cabinet session on
the outbreak of war; Foreign
Minister holding the line at the
UN; Labor Minister pushing
ahead with public works and
social legislation; speaker at i
fund-raising meeting; party
leader at a worker's rally, or
mission-head in Moscow, she hat
always gone to the heart of the
matter, presenting her views in
straightforward black and white
IT SEEMS evident that her
utter single-mindedness about
Jewish survival and weU-being
was forged as a child in a Russian
stetl during a pogrom, and
amidst constant tales of
pogroms. It was as though her
ears rang ever after with the thud
of the hooves of the Cossack
horses and the "Death to the
Jews" cries of their riders,
powering her determination to
devote her life to the services of
her people.
As pupil and then school-
teacher in Milwaukee she
emigrated to America with her
family when she was eight as
pioneer kibbutznik, labor leader
and Jewish Agency executive in
Mandatory Palestine, as Israel's
first diplomat in Russia and I
member of successive Cabined
thereafter, her sole and all i
absorbing concern was the

homeland and the welfare of Jem I

emotional approach to matters of

has seized opportunities to f

Reform Bill Called Repressive
Friday, May 5,1978
Volume 4
28 NISAN-B738
Number 9
If you maintain your interest
in Senate Bill 1437 to the very
end of its 682 pages, you come
across Section 1163 which
reenacts the Logan Act. If you're
hazy on your history, the Logan
Act was originally passed in
It provides that any citizen
who directly or indirectly com-
mences or carries on any
correspondence or intercourse
with any foreign government or
any officer or agent thereof, with
intent to influence the measures
or conduct" of that government,
officer or agent" in relation to any
dispute or controversies with the
United States" shall be guilty of
a criminal offense.
READ IT carefully if you are
Jewish, particularly, and in-
terested in our relations with
Israel. Worried about your
constitutional right to freedom of
speech? Thomas Emerson,
Professor of Law Emeritus at
Yale, and one of the great con-
stitutional lawyers of our time, is
concerned about this and a host
of other portions of S-1437,
commonly known as "Son of S-l"
for the danger it poses to all of us.
And you should be if you grasp
its implications.
This monstrosity, which may
become law, is only one small
portion of an omnibus bill
designed to reform the Federal
criminal code. Instead of reform,
however, it would contribute
further to the erosion of civil
ngnts tor individuals, even those
who would never get involved in
dissent or other activities which
they believe would put them in
For the far-reaching effects of a
number of other sections go
beyond the stated concern to
keep political activity within
legitimate bounds, and can trap
even the most unsuspecting and
apathetic citizen.
THE Criminal
provision (Section
1002), for
instance, would make anyone
present at a meeting where it was
agreed to block construction of
an interstate highway through a
park guilty of criminal con-
spiracy. That is even if he or she
never even participated in the
demonstration, wasn't within
miles of it, and was not even in
agreement with the proposal.
And, if any criminal offense is
committed by some demon-
strator the apathetic, non-
participating citizen is also liable.
In language that is clear in its
intent, S-1437 is designed to
prohibit legitimate activity by
citizens seeking to influence
government policy, to express
opposition to governmental
actions and to resist govern-
mental abuses.
PROF. EMERSON views this
as having been drafted, not with
an eye to encouraging vigorous
participation by citizens in public
affairs, but from a "government' j
as fortress mentality with i j
view to shielding the government
at every turn from the necessity
of taking into account the needi |
and wishes of its citizens".
Despite all we have learned I
since then, it is the feeling of civil |
libertarians that this bill is in fact
the product of the hysteria and
repression of the McCarthy
and, to repeat, could place the |
ordinary citizen in as much
danger of going to jail as j
criminals and subversives thai j

at. It has been pointed out M

If necessary, new laws would

and reduced it to a John Wayne

plications for Jewish resistance
to tyranny in the face of indif-

which should have exulted in it,
"but a war reduced in the NBC

their feverishly commercial
minds or were capable ot

or, what is worse, conviction -
why the fear that Holocaust will
disturb German-Jewish
Dr. Ingendaay thinks
carefully, and in retrospect I am
not sure that his answer is not
non sequitur, but in any case it
stands the test of what Sartre
calls facticity.
"If we are to bear the burden of
the past," he says, "and there is
no way that we should not want
to, or be able to, then so must the
rest of the world." The implica-
tion is clear: If the past is to be
known, then let it be known,
including our own devilish in-
volvement in it.
IGENDAAY means the other
western nations, the Churchillian
Grand Alliance against the Nazi
horde. He means: What did the
rest of us, the great old U.S. of A.
included, do to save the Jews
from Hitler's final solution?
The SS St. Louis story is by
now a cliche. Dr. Ingendaay is
informed far beyond that. He
recalls the July, 1938 meeting in
the Royal Hotel at Evian-Les-
Bain8 of 32 nations just 15 weeks
after Hitler annexed Austria.
Among observers: the Nazi
victors, taking notes assiduously
against some future, still un-
charted conquest, as if to in-
timidate those who would
speak sympathetically of Jews
because they might, themselves,
be victims someday of the
juggernaut; also, Dr. Chaim
Weizmann, spokesman for the
Jewish Agency.
Object of the meeting: How to
rescue "the Jews of the Greater
German Reich, help them to
reestablish their lives elsewhere."
as Peggy Mann puts it in a
splendid Apr. 16 piece in the
Washington Post.
IT IS a fact, Ingendaay recalls,
that at Evian-Les-Bains the
world turned its back on
Europe's Jews, giving Hitler a
feeling that, after all, he was
What if, wonders Ingendaay,
at that conference, each of the 32
nations had agreed to take in just
17,000 Jews at once? He recalls
Mann's observation: "Every
Jewish man, woman and child in
Germany and Austria would
have left for a new homeland"
instead of the showers and
crematoria, Nacht und Nebel.
As for the U.S.A., Mann's
reminiscences speak for them-
selves. At Evian-Les-Bains,
American Ambassador Myron
Taylor dutifully explained the
workings of our National Origins
Quota System which, one is
meant to believe, regrettably pre-
cluded such a possibility. (Think
not of the 800-odd Jews of the St.
Louis denied admittance to
Miami, but of the more than a
quarter of a million Cubans wel-
comed through that port just a
quarter of a century later).
RECALLS Mann: "Although
the total German quota was
25,957 per year... a total of only
27,000 Jews had been admitted
to the United States during
the past (previous to the 1938
Evian Les Bains con-
ference) six years." Reasons:
"They ranged from a 'roadblock'
set down by President Herbert
Hoover in 1932 to the out-
right anti-Semitism of certain
local U.S. consuls (italics
mine) ."
I think, although I dare not
say it, that we, too, were the
Holocaust. Dr. Ingendaay senses
the thought which, of course, he
developed in the first place, and
so, in a sort of chess game, I
return the burden to him by
wondering somewhat defensively
about how it could be that the
mass of Germans stood quietly
"How can it be," Dr. Ingen-
daay replies, that at Evian-Les-
Bains they did not even let
Jewish Agency spokesman Dr.
Weizmann speak?'
OR, I conclude, that in the
concentration camps, the Jews
lined up quietly for their showers.
Always, the good is destroyed in
a conspiracy of silence.
"Even the good Germans," Dr.
Ingendaay observes, and I agree
that some of them must surely
have been struck dumb by the
same forces that made the Jews
line up so docilely. All, all of them
perished by the assent of silence.
And that was mainly what was
wrong with Holocaust. It was too

Many have been tempted to
liken Golda to her biblical
forebear, Deborah the Judge. The
comparison is slight, prompted
largely by the fact of their
womanhood. However, I have
often thought that the theme of
the Song of Deborah, uttered
after the battle near Mount
Tabor in the Valley of Jezreel, is
also characteristic of Golda.
IN THAT immortal Song,
there is high praise for the tribes
who rallied to the colors when
danger threatened, and withering
scorn for those who stayed away.
Of Reuben: "Why did you tarry
among the sheepfolds, to hear the
piping for the flocks? and
Dan, why did he abide with his
ships? As her sat still..." Golda
could not have said it in quite
that way she would be the last
to claim for herself, Deborah's
poetic genuis.
But I have seen men fidget
with embarrassment at the
scornful look in Golda's eyes
when they have been reluctant to
show solidarity, and give help to
their brothers in time of need.

The problem with stress is not how to get rid of it. It's a part of
life. And it's not even all bad. The real problem with stress is how to
recognize it and control it. So it doesn't control you.
Your body reacts to stressful situations with its nerves, glands and
hormones. And because these systems function throughout the body,
what affects them can affect other parts of your body that may be
vulnerable at the time.
That's why stress is a factor in many people's heart attacks,
hypertension, ulcers, asthma, possibly even cancers, and probably
many other ailments. That's also why, in these times of many stresses,
it's a major factor in increasingly costly health care.
You can recognize stress by heeding the warnings of your body
and emotions. Frustration. Anger. Hostilities that build up. Heavy
pressures of responsibility time demands and conflict. Headaches,
insomnia, muscle tension.
The key to handling stress is learning. Learning to air your
feelings in constructive ways, to train your body to relax, to repair a
lifestyle before you're faced with expensive medical repairs. You have
to learn what your stresses are and the best ways for,you to deal
with them.
But they must be dealt with.
Because the longer you remain in the
grip of stress, the more crushingand
costly its effects.

surprise birthday party in Goon's honor. The

The selection of Gen. Rafael Eytan (Raful) as
Chief of Staff of the Israeli Army has met with
wide acclaim throughout the country, according
to local press reports. The media are describing
Eytan as a model fighting man. Some well-known
generals describe him as "the greatest military
figure the Jews have had since the days of Bar-
Political observers are saying that the ap
pointment of Eytan was not based merely on
military considerations, but on political con-
siderations as well. They surmise that Eytan's
appointment was something in the nature of a
warning to the Arab world which still thinks in
terms of a military confrontation with Israel.
The journal of the left-wing Mapam, Hotam,
writes about Eytan's appointment: "If there is
any single person within the past few years about
whom one can say that he was the number one
soldier in Israel's army, that person is surely
Rafael Eytan (Raful). If the nation had 10 com-
manders of the same age, experience, and
character as Eytan, then the Army would have an
altogether different image. The appointment of
Eytan will surely give the public a greater feeling
of security than ever before."
Testimony has been given to the House Ways
and Means Committee in Washington by a
spokesman for the Council of Jewish Federations
urging support of legislation to provide charitable
tax deductions for persons who take the standard
deduction on their Federal income tax return.
Norman A. Sugarman, a member of the CJF
Board of Directors, chairman of its Endowment
Fund Committee and a former Assistant IRS
Commissioner, voiced support for HR 11183,
introduced by Rep. Joseph L. Fisher (D., Va.) and
Rep. Barber B. Conable (R., N.Y.) and co-
sponsored by 10 other members of the Ways and
Means Committee, which would permit a separate
charitable deduction even for the 77 percent of
taxpayers who currently use the standard
He noted that current Administration tax
proposals will'' reduce the support of charities and
thereby hurt all needy people."

News Series Angers
Los Angeles Jews
part series of articles in the Los
Angeles Times has caused a furor
among the city's 500,000 Jews.
The series purported to answer
the question: "What is it like to
be a Jew in Los Angeles today?"
and summarized the answer in
the introduction: "By most
accounts, they (the Jews) have
the highest per capita income,
and per capita are the best
educated, most productive and
socially active citizens in the
"YET, after its 125-year
history here, the Jewish com-
munity remains, according to
some of its leading citizens, as
insecure as it is prosperous and
as socially isolated as it is of-
ficially accepted."
Within days of the publication,
prominent rabbis denounced the
paper from the pulpit.
Leaders of the Jewish
Federation-Council met in
emergency session with the
paper's editorial board, and
defense organizations reached
new heights of indignation.
Much of the heat has focused
on the writer of the articles,
Robert Scheer.
Born in the Bronx and raised in
a Socialist-Yiddish milieu, Scheer
became one of the leading lights
of New-Left journalism in the
HE GAINED considerable
fame and almost derailed the
aspirations of then Presidential
candidate Jimmy Carter, when
the latter admitted in a Scheer
interview published in Playboy
magazine that, though happily
married, he had at times lusted in
his heart after other women.
Following the series of articles,
the paper conducted a survey of
non-Jewish attitudes to Jews.
The results showed that 47
percent of those polled felt that
Jews had too much economic
power, while 48 percent did not
think so.
Thirty-six percent said that
Jews had too much political
power. Some 58 percent
ASKED whether they objected
to the idea of a Jewish President
of the United States, 11 percent
said that they did. Only 5 percent
said they would object to having
a Jew for a neighbor.
The groups most critical of
Jews were Mexican-Americans
and blacks.

PASSOVER FUN BOOK: Puzzles, Riddles, Magic and
More. By David A. Adler. New York: Bonim Books,
Hebrew Publishing Co., 48 pp., $1.95.
ADLER, author of last year's successful Hanukkah
Fun Book, has now provided us with an excellent gift to
bring your child, grandchild, relative or friend for the
Passover holiday. It is perfect as a gift for your host or
hostess during the holiday.
Adler makes Jewish holidays as much fun as comic
books, coloring books and puzzle games all under one
cover. There are 40 activities for children ages seven to
eleven. A rebus tells the story of the Jews' freedom from
slavery; a matzoh matching game shows both square and
round matzos.
EVERY PUZZLE, word game and riddle teaches the
child something about Passover. In a pleasant, fun way
children absorb and learn (without meaning to learn) the
symbols, songs, words and story of the holiday.
Adler even has a gimmick in this book. The child sees
a "moving cartoon" by flipping the pages of the book. Of
course answers and explanations are provided wherever
needed. This is a highly recommended learning / fun tool.
THE PASSOVER FEAT II. Revised Edition. By the
West Orange Chapter of American Mizrachi Women,
615 Nye Ave., Irvington, N.J. 07111,384 pp., $6.50.
THIS NEW edition took three years to complete and
contains 1,000 recipes. It is the largest recipe book put out
by a women's organization (sisterhood or national
organization) that this reviewer has seen.
Although the cookbook is primarily intended for
Passover use, the large variety of unusual recipes enables
the cook to adapt most of the recipes for year-round use.
And the cookbook offers a special feature of many recipes
for those who keep the custom of non-gebrocht not
cooking or baking on Passover with matzoh or matzoh
THERE IS a wonderful section on cooking hints for
every day and a detailed chapter on the Seder plate, in-
cluding a variety of interesting ways to make charoset.
The authors have considered nutrition as well. At
least every permissible Passover vegetable is featured in
at least one recipe. And there is a 63-page section covering
meats and poultry.
The recipes do not sound pesachdig. There is
Passover pizza and eggplant parmesan. There are recipes
for mayonnaise, preserves, relishes, chocolate mousse and
homemade candies.
The money collected from the sale of the cookbook
will go to American Mizrachi Women's projects in Israel.

someone had to become involved,
someone had to lead the way out
of the darkness of bondage into
the light of liberty.
In the Passover story it was
Moses who became involved. In
the year 73 C.E., when the
Romans had destroyed
Jerusalem and the Holy Temple,
it was the martyrs of Masada
who became involved. And now,
after Passover, we are com-
memorating the involvement of a
great rabbi and his disciples.
Because of their demise, we do
not celebrate joyous occasions at
this time of the year, for a period
of several weeks.
The success of the fulfillment
of ideals which lead to a better
mankind, cannot be obtained by
a laissez-faire policy. The non-
chalance of the modern world has
brought about the many tragic
situations which are enslaving
mankind today. No matter what
crimes, what unfair practices,
what poltical shenanigans take
place, no one wishes to get in-
EVERYONE wishes to sit
under his own vine and his own
fig tree, and hold on to his little
bundle of gold, wishing to
convince himself that he needs to
do nothing in order to protect his
little bundle, or his cozy vine or
fig tree. If those who brought
freedom to mankind had not
wanted to become involved, there
would be no democracy, no life,
liberty or the pursuit of hap-
If George Washington,
Thomas Jefferson or Abraham
Lincoln would have been con-
tented to live only for them-
selves, our country would not
have developed into the great
democracy that it is supposed to
be. If Ben Gurion and Menachem
Begin had not been willing to
throw in their lot with suffering
Jewry, the Jew would still be the
cowering underdog of an anti-
Semitic world.
For the purpose of Jewish
survival the Jew, who is
deserving of the name, must
become involved in many facets
of Jewish life. Since Judaism is a
way of life, and not simply a
dogmatic creed, the many
aspects of Jewish living should
be our interest.
FROM the problems of Israel's
peace and security, to the human
rights of Soviet Jewry, even
though far from our borders, our
involvement must be felt and
impressed upon our own people in
those lands and upon the non-
Jews over the world.
A solution of the urgent need
for better Jewish education for
our children, the matter of Jewish
youth flocking to the Moonies,
the gurus or the Jews for Jesus,
the rise of Neo-Naziism in this
country, and all such matters, are
all subjects for involvement,
because they and many other
problematic situations are related
to Jewish survival.
Freedom for the Jew cannot be
an easily obtained status. For us,
the sacrifice made during the
revolt of Rabbi Akibah following
Passover, ia a repeated ritual in
our lives from year to year.

PARIS Francois Mit-
terand, the French Socialist
leader, has shattered his image as
a friend of Israel, and has swung
round to the views of the far Left
of his party.
A considerable minority of the
French Socialist Party has
traditionally been pro-Arab,
while Mitterand and the majority
have always been regarded as
Now, Mitterand has changed
his mind and come out in open
support of the Palestine
Liberation Organization.
SPEAKING at the weekend,
he declared that the PLO, headed
by Yasir Arafat, was the sole
representative of the Palestinian
After paying lip service to
Israel's need for secure and
guaranteed frontiers, Mitterand
went on to urge the establish-
ment of a separate Palestinian
State on the West Bank and in
the Gaza Strip.
A recent survey indicated that
some 56 percent of France's
390,000 Jewish voters expected
to vote for the Socialists, despite
their alliance with the Com-
munists in the recent elections.
(The Communists were expected
to obtain some 4,000 Jewish
votes altogether.)
A SIMILAR survey taken
today shows a much smaller
percentage of the Jewish elec-
torate voted for the Socialists.
The reason is that, although
national issues clearly influenced
Jewish voters in France, Israel
was the central issue for the
overwhelming majority of them.
Jewish communal and religious
leaders did not issue any advice
on how to vote.
However, Crif, French Jewry's
representative council wrote to
all communities and
organizations suggesting some
questions be put to candidates
with regard to Israel and related
the country's religious
representative body and Rabbi
Jacob Kaplan, the Chief Rabbi of
France, issued a statement
saying that they, too, would
refrain from making suggestions
about how to vote.
Nevertheless, the statement
continued, before voting ac-
cording to their conscience,
French Jews were to take into
consideration the attitude of all
candidates towards Israel, the
French Jewish community and
Jewish schools.
The reason for mentioning
Jewish schools was the fear that,
if the Left-wing parties won the
elections, they would introduce
legislation severely curtailing
religious education.
It is of interest that Moslems
have now become the second
most important group in France
after Roman Catholics. A survey
published recently shows that
there are some two million
Moslems in the country, most of
them from France's former North
African colonies. This compared
with an estimated 550,000 Jews.
