cently by Alan L. Shulman,
eneraf campaign chairman.
"This represents the highest
otal to date ever raised in any
Federation campaign in this

SHULMAN felt that the

krgely to the growing under-

Shulman cited the first Palm
Beach County Community
Mission to Israel and the cameo
mission to Israel as "significant
programs in helping educate this
community to the necessity of
Israel's survival and to their
increased requirement for assis-
tance in social and welfare ser-
vices.'' The South County and

their significant increases in con-

teen As Pussycat
Exclusive Interview That
Shook Up World Opinion
The following exclusive interview, widely quoted in news-
papers throughout the world, created a special furor in
Egypt, where President Sadat concluded that President
Carter has reneged on his word and, in succumbing to the
'Israeli lobby,' is severing the final threads of prospects
for peace in the Middle East.

Prime Minister was in the United
States last week to mark the 30th
anniversary of the Jewish State.
There are indications that the
President's latest views may ease
the strained relations between
the two countries.
SITTING in the Oval Office,
the President defended his
Middle East policy, rejected
charges that he had broken cam-
paign promises to American
supporters of Israel and indicated
that, if he could get them

Shulman to Take Top Post At
Federation's Annual Meeting
Alan L. Shulman will be
installed as president of the
Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County at its 16th
annual meeting to be held
Sunday, May 28 at 7:30 p.m.
at the Breakers Hotel in Palm
As general chairman of the
Jewish Federation's 1977 and
1978 Combined Jewish Appeal
- Israel Emergency Fund cam-
paigns, Shulman was instru-
mental in raising the largest
total dollars in the history of
the Palm Beach County
Jewish community.
IN 1976, he served with his
wife, Barbara, as a delegate to
the Jewish Agency Assembly in
Jerusalem, and in the past year
has made four trips to Israel,
including the UJA-Prime Min-
ister's Mission, where he met
with Menachem Begin and For-
eign Minister Moshe Dayan.
Shulman will succeed Stanley

year term as president of the

Nazi Solon Was NBC 'Holocaust' Aide
former Nazi SS officer was used
as a technical advisor to the
NBC-TV film drama, Holocaust,
which was recently aired and was
viewed by an estimated 120
million persons.
According to the show's pro-
ducer, Robert Berger, who denied
to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that this item was being
kept secret from the general as
well as Jewish public, the man
was hired on the advice of the
German production agent, Pia
Arnold, to advise the crew on
such items as proper uniforms,
correct medals worn by German
officers, as well as the purported
dialogue used by the Nazis as the
Jews were being led to their
WHEN questioned as to why
survivors could not have served
in an advisory capacity, he
replied that in fact the curator of
the Matthausen concentration
camp museum, who himself spent
four years at Auschwitz and is
now a professor, was contacted
but could not advise them on
these matters.
As for the use of other sur-
vivors, Berger insisted that no
person who reached the place of
death lived to tell about it.
The veteran television pro-
ducer, who felt that making an
issue of this was a "tempest in
the teapot," related that this
former Nazi, who served as
advisor several years ago to the
Odessa File film, was not on the
actual staff of the NBC-TV
Holocaust company, and his role
involved answering three
questions over the telephone for
which he was paid $150.
Berger added that the
production staff was composed of
many different nationalities and
persons, including Jews, Euro-
peans, an Egyptian, as well as
"several ex-Wehrmacht officers."
WHEN asked about the
propriety of using former Nazis
as advisors to this production,
Berger felt that the "program
stands on its own" and added: "I
don't care if Hitler worked on it,
it doesn't invalidate what it did."
In further discussion, the pro-
ducer said that he saw no incon-
gruity with participation of
former Nazi individuals in an
advisory capacity to the pro-
duction, especially at a time when
the memoirs and experiences of
Watergate's unindicted co-con-
spirators were being released and
used for financial gain and in-
formational purposes.
A story dealing with the
employment of two former SS
officers as advisors to the
Holocaust film first appeared in
The National Enquirer, a weeklv
tabloid. A spokesman for NBC-
TV told the JTA that this story
was "totally distorted, exag-
gerated and inflammatory."
Cuban Troops
to Lebanon?
BEIRUT In the event
of renewed problems
between Israel and the
Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization operating in
Lebanon, Israel's armed
forces may very well have
to face soldiers from Cuba.
This is the word from
Lebanon, where PLO
spokesmen declared Mon-
day that Cuba* would send
troops to support its cause
if needed.
MILITARY Director of the
PLO Zuheir Mohsen at the same
time declared that he saw no im-
mediate need for Cuban support.
In fact, said Mohsen, although
United Nations peacekeeping
forces do turn back PLO units
trying to infiltrate the UN lines,
Palestine commando teams can
still manage to launch attacks
inside Israel.
Mohsen, quoted in the English
- language weekly, Monday
"SHOULD WE need help
in the future, there is nothing
to prevent us from asking for
help from any friendly
country. Cuba is a friend and
would not turn down our
Morning, said that the PLO had
no intentions of setting up
permanent bases in areas vacated
by Israeli troops because it did
not want to get caught "in the
jaws of the pincer, with the
Israelis ahead of us and the UN
forces behind us."
Primarily, Mohsen reported
that the PLO is "not in need of
additional forces from the outside
at this time," meaning Cuba.
"SHOULD WE need help in
the future, there is nothing to
prevent us from asking for help
from any friendly country. Cuba
is a friend and would not turn
down our request.''
Mohsen was, however, quick to
deny t';at Cuban troops are

Cuban Troops In Lebanon
Reports of the possibility of Cuban troops in Lebanon
should say something to the Administration if nothing
else does.
For a long time, the Administration was told of in-
creasing Moscow-dominated activity in the Horn of Africa
and in other African areas where revolutionary move-
ments are currently waging campaigns.
For an equally long time, the Administration
preferred to discount the reports as smokescreens
designed allegedly to justify the white regimes in
Rhodesia and South Africa.
There is no doubt that the Administration now ac-
cepts the reports as true, and now that the Palestine
Liberation Organization is openly flaunting the ultimate
presence of Cuban troops in Southern Lebanon to bolster
its cause, will it also be indifferent to this?
Cuba is a part of the so-called Third World a world
only 90 miles from our shores. It is this very nation that
assists in fomenting discord in Africa and now the
Middle East.
What nation but Israel is today in the vanguard of
the struggle against this Third World invasion of a part of
the globe so strategically important to America's own
security? And yet, by its actions, by its continued in-
sisting that Israel make concessions before there are any
peace talks, the Administration seeks to weaken the only
nation currently doing our fighting for us.

from them whatever they can.
But how much longer can I live
yet, when I am now 91 and a half
years old, and how many
mistakes can I still make in the
short time left for me on this
earth? It seemed to me a waste of
time to take such a course. But I

learned quite a lot from Selma's
Selma believes that any
person, no matter how old, can
still learn from his mistakes. I
doubted her belief, and argued
with her about it many a time.
But her arguments were so
strong, and her way of presenting
them so rational, that I had to
give her the benefit of the doubt
and agree with her almost

more closely and the more I

age. 91 plus, who made so many
mistakes in his lifetime, and
learned so little from them,

Lag B'Omer-Wedding Day
By Rabbi William H. Shapiro
Executive Secretary, Rabbinical
Council of Palm Beach County
Lag is composed of the two
Hebrew letters lammed, gimmeL
Hasidim that the saintly rabbi
died on Lag B'Omer, and that
before his death he revealed to his
disciples the secrets which were
later incorporated in the mystic
book called Zohar.
Lag B'Omer has been set aside
as a special holiday for school
children. On Thursday, May 25,
Jewish schools in all parts of the
world will celebrate this day by
picnicking, playing games, par-
ticularly with bow and arrow
which are reminiscent of the
great Jewish heroes of the past,
and by listening to the traditional
stories told by their teachers.
LET US all rededicale our-
selves to Jewish learning and
ideals so that we, too, can ap-
preciate the true joy of this
Rabbi Shapiro
Considered as numerals these
letters denote the thirty-third
day in the counting of the omer,
during Sefirah, a time of
Lag B'Omer is observed as a
semi-holiday because of a number
of incidents in Jewish history
which occurred in the second
century of the common era. It is
recorded that during the Last ill-
starred revolution against the
Romans, a plague broke out
among the disciples of Rabbi
Akiba, the great teacher who,
incidentally, was an ardent sup-
porter of the revolution and of
Bar Kochba, the military leader.
ON Lag B'Omer the epidemic
suddenly stopped. Consequently,
it became a day of happy events,
particularly of weddings. It is
also a feast day.
According to tradition, this
semi-holiday is also aligned with
another great scholar, the saintly
Rabbi Simeon Bar Yohai. After
the Romans crushed the Bar
Kochba uprising, they issued
decrees aimed at destroying
Jewish religion and culture.
Sabbath observance, the study
of Torah, and other fundamental
precepts were prohibited by
Emperor Hadrian under penalty
of death. Rabbi Akiba and other
teachers were killed for their
RABBI Simeon Bar Yohai,
however, managed to escape and
continued to instruct his
students in the Law. A cave in
the mountains of Galilee was his
hideout, and there he remained
for many years. It was only when
the emperor died that Rabbi
Simeon returned to Meron, a
village near Safed.

Misunderstanding About Human Emotions
By Stephen Levitt, A.C.8.W.
A personal view from
the Executive Director of
the Jewish Family A
Children's Service
(All case names mentioned in
these articles are fictitious; client
information at Jewish Family A
Children's Service is held in the
strictest of confidence.)
A number of months ago I dis-
cussed the matter of "Creative
Agression" and the concepts
advanced by Dr. Bach and his
colleagues associated with Center
for Group Psychotherapy based
in Los Angeles.
There exists considerable mis-
understanding about the nature
of human emotions, their
development and the circum-
stances under which they appear.
Dr. Ashley Montagu, in a book
published last year, and which I
believe will stand for years to
come as the authoritative text on
'the subject, has explored the
Stephen Levitt
etiology of human aggression
tendencies, in his Nature of
Human Aggression.
HIS hypothesis is that man is
not "instinctively" aggressive
but must learn how to behave as
an asocial or violent personality.
The idea that we are "in-
stinctively" and innately aggres-
sive and that we best prepare for
the eventual Armageddon of our

emotions by channeling them
into competitive sports, or
perhaps constructing cages for
ourselves is blatantly
erroneous according to Dr.
He evinces an impressive
number of studies, in his book,
which refute the tenets of Social
Darwinism, and the more recent
concepts of territoriality and
aggression advanced by Robert
From the vantage point of 10
years of clinical experience I
must heartily concur with Dr.
Montagu, in my support of his
hypothesis. I have found that if
people are taught to be loving,
considerate, socially aware and
concerned, they will eventually
behave as though they are con-
cerned, aware and loving people.
This education should, ideally,
occur not in a therapist's office,
but rather, at home, on the job
and in our schools.
IT SEEMS evident to me, that
we must first feel the
cooperativeness is, above all, a
useful norm (not ideal) and we
must thereupon become
cooperative people in our every-
day lives. I believe that this can
be an infectious process, and an
infection that, I for one, would be
delighted to see strike the Palm
Beaches and the United States
as a whole.
Recently, a troubled young
female client was in the JF & CS
waiting lounge and appeared to
be writing on a piece of scrap
paper. I asked her to show me
what she had written, and
although it was not an original
composition, but rather a lyric
from a rock song popular a few
years ago, it impressed me as
being a true and honest ex-
pression of what not only our
younger generation wants, but
our older one as well:
"You've got to get up every
morning and put a smile on your
face and show the world all the
love in your heart
Then, people will treat you
better, and you'll find, yes you
will, that you're as beautiful as
you feel."
THIS little verse reminded me
of the importance of self-
education and determination. If
one has selected an obtainable
and realistic / healthy image of
what one wishes to be, one will in
most probability become that

THE PRESIDENT is accused
of breaking a formal American
commitment, made in Septem-
ber, 1975, by Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger when Gerald
Ford was President, to meet
Israel's request for jet fighters.
Israeli officials have said this
pledge was made by the United
States in exchange for Israel's
withdrawal from the strategic
passes in the Sinai Peninsula and
its agreement to return the Abu

commitment to Israel and to link

The charges by Israel's
supporters notwithstanding,
Carter denied that he is breaking
that commitment "I've read all
the minutes of the meetings
between President Ford, Henry
Kissinger and Israeli leaders," he
told me. "I also read the letter
which President Ford wrote to
Israel concerning the Sinai agree-
ment and the supplying of arms.

honoring those commitments

positions on the Mideast enun-

On Saying What You Mean
FORGIVE ME for comparing
myself to President Carter, but
there is a parallel I would like to
draw, and I believe it is a valid
Throughout my professional
life, I have been both a journalist'
and a teacher. As a teacher, until
only a few years ago, I took the
benevolent approach.
In the classroom, there was
always an encouraging smile on
my face.
WHEN students showed
incredibly deficient levels of
lower educational skills, when
they were indifferent to my
assignments and scholastic
demands, repeatedly I took the
position that a word of en-
couragement from me, an oc-
casional sermon on the meaning
of academic success, a statement
that they needed reorientation in
their understanding of what the
academic life was all about, and
that I would be there to help
them through it. was all that
would be needed to alter their
This was the approach I took,
and quite honestly. I expected
that it would work. Good-will, I
thought, can overcome funda-
mental student inertia, if not
faulty education. A nudge in the
right direction would make them
see the light. The fact is that it
WHAT IS worse, the goodwill
on my part became rapidly
contaminated by the anger on
theirs, because when the day of
reckoning came, when I had to
judge and grade their work, the
disappointing results they
achieved failed to square with the
smile on my face, the
benevolence, the words of en-
My teaching strategy was that
these positive things would allay
their anxieties and spur them to
higher levels.
Their reaction to the strategy
was that if I was that "easy-
going," then the material they
were required to learn couldn't be
all that important anyway and
that I would undoubtedly grade
them on charm rather than on
WHAT BEGAN to change me
several years ago was the slow
realization that students didn't
appreciate the good-will and
benevolence that in fact many
of them thought me an ivory
tower absent-minded professor
not of this world, who was not to
be taken seriously and who really
didn't know the difference
between the good students and
the bad students among them
What began to change me was
the repeated experiencing of their
awakening to the fact.
always too late to do anything
about it, that I wasn't absent-
minded at all that in their view
I was really all too tough, unfair
and excessively demanding and
that I had failed to let them in on
that from the very beginning.
What began to change me was
the awareness that if I knocked
off the light hand and told them
from the beginning how things
were going to be in my classroom,
why at least I could avoid their
feelings of anger and betrayal in
the end. particularly as the light
hand made little difference in the
level of their performance
IN THE end. they would have
to accept my judgment of them,
if not in good grace, at least not
in the self-indulgent feeling that I
had deceived them.
Today, I see the classroom
quite differently. Students have
changed over the years for a
variety of reasons. Most, deluded
souls, regard the college class-
room as a passport to some pro-
fession as a utilitarian experi-
ence which is bitter and boring,
but necessary.
They get this from the general
social order, which is materially
corrupt, inwardly poverty-
stricken and at best ambivalent
toward the college classroom
itself, not really understanding
anymore why it is necessary, only
that tradition tells them that it
ft; at worst, woefully confused
about education on every level
and higher education in par-
Others regard the college
classroom as a passport to social
integration. Blacks, many
Cubans and students from
developing Moslem lands in the
Middle East and Africa have no
connection whatever with the
traditional occidental view of the
academic experience.
In either circumstance, the
learning process is not a learning
process, a civilizational enter-
prise. It is a diploma, a degree, a
piece of paper that will make
them kosher. They think.
And now to my parallel. I find
it hard to believe that President
Carter can't seem to make up his
mind on major issues, both
domestic and foreign.
My own hunch is that he is
being benevolent. He is saying to
the nation and to the world what
the nation and the world want to
hear words of encouragement,
assurances that everything will
be all right, that it is not too
difficult to come to do the things
that need to be done.
CARTER is showing that he is
a man of good-will and, in this, he
is hoping to make divergent
interests, indeed frequently
mortal enemies, see the
reasonableness of his insights
and accept them as logical prior-
ities of action.
Of course, they may very well
be, but conflicting interests wind
up feeling lied to, betrayed,
deceived when it appears to them
that they are being told one
thing, while their enemies are
being told another.
Then there is the question of
the world itself. The ancient,
developed monoliths have his-
torically been Machivaellian. and
that is bad enough. They are not
interested in principles
(academics), but pragmatic
practice (the degree, the

wilderness of self-interest, there
is at least some pretense at
playing the rules of the game,
while among the developing
nations, there is no tradition for
tethering duplicity and even
indifference to a world law which

Palestinians, declaring: "I have
never favored an independent
Palestinian state. I still don t
favor one, and I have no intention
of deviating from that position."
TO THE accusation by critics
of his Mideast policy that he was
leaning toward the Palestinian
Liberation Organization and
sought to bring them into the
Middle East peace talks, Carter
said: "Our commitment to Israel
today and in the past is that we
will have no contact with the
PLO until it takes action to
recognize the right of Israel to
exist, either through an endorse-
ment of United Nations Reso-
lution 242 or the modification of
the PLO charter.
"Obviously, we have been
urged by Arab leaders, by
members of the United Nations,
by other European leaders, to
have direct discussions with the
PLO. But we haven't done so. We
have made a promise to Israel,
and we are carrying out that
promise. So there is no need for
Israel to doubt us. We will keep
our word to them. We have never
broken our word to them."
AT THE same time, the
President also defended his
active involvement in the search
for a Middle East peace. "Our
country has a direct and sub-
stantial interest in a permanent
Arab-Israel settlement," he
declared. "We are more than
interested bystanders."
Nevertheless, Carter
acknowledged that if there was to
be an agreement it could be made
only by the parties involved.
"The negotiations of a final
settlement will require flexibility
on both sides of the negotiating
table," he said.
