Peace Treaty Political Clauses
Meet Fierce Cabinet Disapproval
Despite the heavy cloak of
secrecy that surrounded its
deliberations and the absence of
any official confirmation, the
general conclusion here is that
the Cabinet rejected the political
aspects of the draft peace treaty
being negotiated between Israel
and Egypt in Washington and
also found fault with many of the
military elements.
Reports circulating here said
the political clauses of the peace
treaty met with fierce disap-
proval by the Cabinet, and it was
decided to reject them at least
until Begin returns to Israel. It is
expected that Weizman and
Foreign Minister Moshe Day an.
the chief Israeli negotiators,
could be called home at that time
for further discussion.
indicated that, from the
government's point of view, the
reports brought from
Washington by Weizman
revealed an insignificant degree
of progress in the negotiations.
The Cabinet's reaction to the
treaty drafts made it virtually
certain that they will not be
completed before Nov. 19, the
first anniversary of President
Anwar Sadat's visit to
Weizman appeared distinctly
unhappy with the reaction of his
Cabinet colleagues. He denied
that he was disappointed with
the two days of Cabinet sessions.
But he acknowledged that
many problems were raised and
that the Cabinet offered solutions
to some and set guidelines for the
solution of others. "I am con-

Mrs. Mathilda Brailove, former

Mrs. Brailove is a member of the

vinced that we are nearing the
signing of a peace agreement,"
Weizman told reporters.
HE ADDED, however, "I am
convinced that it will be a
mistake if we do not reach an
agreement." He also said that the
time has come for the leaders to
tell the nation the pros and cons
of the peace agreement and the
nature of what lies ahead.
He said he believed the pros
are much more important than
the cons. "I am convinced that
the new way of life (with a peace
treaty) will be a positive one. We
may need some time to fasten our
belts, but we shall have a new
era," he said.
It was learned that the Cabinet
meeting witnessed sharp ex-
changes between Weizman and
other ministers. Some expressed
disapproval over the military
clauses, particularly the pace of
Israel's withdrawal from Sinai.
final stages of withdrawal must
coincide with the completion of
the new air bases in the Negev
that will replace the bases
abandoned in Sinai.
Meanwhile, Acting Premier
Yigael Yadin said on Israel Radio
that "There still remain some
basic, very important differences
in concluding the peace
negotiations between Israel and
Egypt and these are not only
differences on small issues."
He emphasized that there was
no need to rush into the con-
clusion of a treaty. "This is a
basic treaty which will determine
our security and way of life for
many years to come and we must
take each issue and attempt to
ground it in accordance with our
considerations of what is best for

Teachers of the Blind Are Trained in Israel
HAIFA Thirty-two/
students who completed a special
course in working with the blind
in their homes and communities, i
the first such course to be given
in Israel, received their
graduation certificates recently.
Dr. Israel Katz, Minister of
Labor and Social Affairs, in
presenting the certificates, hailed
the innovative program which, he
declared, would greatly ease the
critical shortage of teachers of
the blind, and singled out the
American Jewish Joint Dis-
tribution Committee for its ef-
forts in helping establish the
program, prepared and funded
equally by the Department of
Rehabilitation, Ministry of Labor
and Social Affairs and JDC-
Israel, was conducted at the
Ministry's School for Training
Social Workers in Education in
Netanya under the supervision of
Haifa University.
The course was designed to
enable the students to deal with
the psychological and social
problems facing the blind and
further their integration into
Chassidic Festival in West Palm
This year, the Israeli Chassidic
Festival has been declared in
Jerusalem as the "Peace
Festival," dedicated to the new
peace hopes kindled at the Camp
David Summit.
On its 10th Anniversary the
1978 Israeli Chassidic Festival is
coming to West Pahn Beach
Auditorium on Dec. 14 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are available at the box
The first Israeli Chassidic Fes-
tival in October 1969 was in-
tended to be a one-time song
contest, but the overwhelming
applause changed the course of
history for this musical event.
Unprepared for such en-
thusiasm and encores, the
performers were forced to repeat
the entire performance. A week
later, its winning song, "Oseh
Shalom," topped the record
charts and public acclaim turned
this contest into an annual
musical event.
The second Chassidic Festival
gave birth to not one but three
hit songs: "Yevarechecha."
"Yedid Nefesh" and "Sisu et
Yerushalayim." It drew its first
international attention giving
Temple Israel Sets Torah Seminars
Temple Israel is sponsoring a
new series of weekly Saturday
seminars at 10:30 a.m. in the
Temple Library, 1901 N. Flagler
Drive, West Palm Beach.
Men and women are invited to
study the Torah portion of the
week directly from the Torah
Scroll. Rabbi Joel Levine will
conduct the seminars and explain
the historical background of the
weekly portion. Through study,
the group also will leam about
selected Rabbinic commentaries
on the Hebrew words themselves.
The seminars will be specially
planned so even those who do not
read Hebrew will be totally in-
volved. Admission is com-
plementary, but reservations are
required. Call the Temple office.

rise to the idea and wishes that
the Festival be performed to
audiences outside of Israel as
Its international debut was at
New York's Carnegie Hall in
1971. Since that time scores of
cities on four continents have
welcomed the Israeli Chassidic
Festival to their stages.
This year marks the Festival's
eighth visit to North America
with 45 performances scheduled
this fall.
Nine Festivals have produced 9
LP record albums, 108 new
songs, more than half of which
have made the Israeli Hit Parade
and have become well known the
world over, among them: "She-
hecheyanu," "Shema Israel,"
"Ani Mamin" and "Adon Olam."
The popularity of the Festival
and its record sales prompted
Hed Arzi (Israel's leading record
company) to release two special
Greatest Hits collections.
The Festival attained immor-
tality as its songs became a part
of the daily services. Passages of
the prayers which were recited for
hundreds of years are now being
sung to the new melodies which
originated in the Chassidic
Festival. And, in some cases, the
new melodies have even replaced
the traditional ones.
Israeli society. Planning the
program was Mrs. Lena Zifrom,
head of the American Israel
Lighthouse Committee, who
worked closely with Dr. Avraham
Benyamin (who himself is blind)
of Haifa University.
The students, all possessing
BA or teaching certificates, were
given intensive training in
working with blind children and
adults to learn their problems of
mobility, education, coping with
home management, and employ-
ment. Field work was conducted
in the homes, schools and in-
stitutions for the blind through-
out the country with the co-
operation of parents, teachers,
paraprofessional personnel and
volunteer agencies.
Specialized areas of study
included working with blind
children and their parents, with
emphasis on the emotional
problems faced by the sightless
in getting around in their com-
munities. The students were
often blindfolded to give them an
idea of what the sightless had to
contend with. A third area was
rehabilitation skills: learning
Braille, the utilization of tape
records and other electronic
devices, home economics, child

Israel's Battered Babies
JERUSALEM (JTA) Some 500 children up to
the age of four are treated each year for injuries caused by
their parents, a Tel Aviv University scientist told the con-
vention of social workers which met here Nov. 1.
Most of the children are treated for broken bones.
The lecturer, Hanita Zimrin, told of one mother who fed
her children for a long period with a light drink only, until
they were rushed to the hospital suffering from mal-
OTHER MOTHERS did not change their babies'
diapers, causing dangerous infections.
Surprisingly, a university study revealed that the
phenomenon was not limited to the so-called lower classes
only. There were quite a few cases of maltreatment by
parents living in the prestigious Rehavia quarter in
The only difference was that the upper class parents
brought their children to private doctors who do not
always report the cases to the authorities.

faculty members of Temple Beth
El, the Jewish Community Day
School and Temple Beth David,
Temple Sinai of Hollywood,
Wellington Congregation and
Temple Israel gathered for the
second time to broaden their
knowledge and learn new ap-
proaches to the art of teaching.
This time the teaching of Jewish
values and creative techniques in
teaching values were highlighted.
The seminar is a response to an
urgent need sensed by the
educators in the community, to
progress, to grow, to incorporate
the best concepts and practices of
current educational thought and
to exercise leadership in the
search for better ways of
This year Mrs. Stephanie
King, supervisor of Judaica in
the High School of the Central
Agency for Jewish Education,
conducted morning and af-
ternoon workshops in the
teaching of Jewish values. She
maintained that teaching values
is different from teaching facts.
She indicated that these two
areas need to be approached in
entirely different ways. "For
teaching values, a proper en-
vironment of trust, warmth, and
non-judgmental relationships
must be established. The student
can explore free of threat, his own
set of values. The teacher should
attempt to clarify and specify the
values in question and provide
the opportunity to exercise the
behavior aspects of the values."
Mrs. Ruth Levow, author of
educational materials, conducted
a morning workshop in which
teachers learned to create their
own materials, games and other
instructional materials for the
purpose of teaching values.
Mordechai Levow, director of
the Jewish Community Day
School, conducted an afternoon
workshop in value clarification.
He provided a theoretical
framework for the way in which
values are to be taught. Referring
to the many educators who
forumlated the method of "values
clarification," he outlined the
stages in the process. Levow
applied the theory to the specifics
of teaching the values implicit in
the holiday of Chanukah.
Rabbi Asher Bar-Zev of
Temple Beth El summerized the
day's activities.
During lunch. Rabbi Jerome
Kestenbaum of Temple Emanu-el
spoke on the role of values in
Jewish education. He pointed out
that values are the most im-
portant aspect of Jewish
A spiritual lift was provided by
Israeli songs, led by Cantor
Elaine Shapiro of Temple Beth

director of the S.E. Region of
United Synagogue, organized the
seminar. Michael Chen stated,
"We at Temple Beth El perceive
the "'eachers Training Seminar as
an important event sup-
plementing our monthly
teacher's meetings."
In November 1977, Michael
Chen, principal of Beth El
Religious School, initiated the
first teachers training seminar.
Teachers and lay members from
as far away as Sarasota, to the
north and Boca Raton to the
south, joined Temple Beth El
teachers, to study new methods
of teaching Jewish history.

Plugging the Loophole
Congress has finally plugged up a loophole in
the immigration laws that has existed since 1952
which has prevented the U.S. government from
barring Nazis from entry to this country or deporting
those it finds living here.
The new law, devised by Rep. Elizabeth
Holtzman (D., N.Y.) would "exclude from admission
into, and to deport from, the United States all aliens
who persecuted any person on the basis of race,
religion, national origin, or political opinion, under
the direction of the Nazi government of Germany,
and for other purposes." The law will also allow the
government to strip a Nazi war criminal of U.S.
citizenship, once he is convicted, and deport him.
The Immigration and Naturalization Service has
only recently begun moving against suspected Nazi
war criminals after some 30 years of unexplained
inaction. The INS already has a list of several people
who had arrived in the U.S. after 1952 and whom it
will be able to move against under the new law.
Holtzman corfiJnented that the Congressional
adoption of the bill she sponsored "confirms my
belief that it is not too late to make our stand against
war crimes clear and unequivocal." Those who have
committed war crimes must not be allowed to
continue unpunished.
An 'Unsettling' Worry
Prime Minister Begin's statement after his
meeting with President Carter in New York last week
about the President's answers to King Hussein's
questions as being "very unsettling" in turn worries
American Jewry.
It is therefore good to note that Theodore R.
Mann, president of the Presidents Conference of
Major American Jewish Organizations, has gone on
record that U.S. Jewry stands behind Israel in its
policy on the West Bank and Jerusalem.
For undoubtedly these are precisely the issues
that have worried Begin so much and that Mr.
Carter has not made much of a secret about in his
determined decision to cut them away from Israel's
MY ATTITUDE toward the
Nobel Prize in literature is well-
known to be negative among
those who have attempted to
debate it with me. To them, 1 am
either a rogue or peasant slave.
It does not matter my
attitude has not changed: I will
not join the throng in celebration
of sentimentalism, which is one of
the worst forms of art because it
is a pandering to the un-
disciplined mind. And that's
what too many Nobel laureates in
literature are sentimentalists
whose work passes on with them,
while too many others, some of
them acknowledged masters of
the twentieth century, have gone,
and continue to go, unheralded.
THE NOBEL in science is
little different. In a flash of
honesty uncommon to its general
practice, the press has been
publishing some recent comment
on these prizes since the
Academy announced the science
winners a few weeks ago
comment that questions the
integrity of the prizes because,
over the years, considerations
other than the value of the
scientific work being cited have
entered into the decision to crown
it with a Nobel. Or else, the
assessment of the value has in
the long run turned out to be

characteristic of the prizes in
literature have tended to be
shared by the prizes in science

find difficult to accept on the

Iran Mobs Destroy
El Al Offices
TEL AVIV (JTA) Rampaging mobs in
Teheran, opposed to the Shah, devastated the El Al office
there, according to reports reaching the airline's head-
quarters here. There were no reports of casualties. El Al
officials said that flights to Teheran will continue as long
as the airport remains open.
The El Al office was located in the modern part of the
city. The one or two policemen guarding it were unable to
stem the mob which, according to the report, destroyed
the office completely.
THE DISTURBANCES continued and appeared
directed against all foreign establishments. The main
building of the British Embassy was set on fire as were
scores of government offices and international hotels.
Foreigners were attacked and beaten, including reporters.
The uprising against the Shah's regime by a com-
bination of students, left-wing elements and Moslem
religious zealots did not appear to single out Israeli
targets. But concern mounted here, nevertheless, for the
safety of the Iranian Jewish community, numbering some
80,000, mostly in Teheran.
Although Wuliam C. Harrod,
Deputy Assistant Secretary of
State for African Affairs, said not
long ago that the United States
does not consider the Palestine
Liberation Organization a
terrorist outfit, he seems now
obliged to reconsider. For
President Jimmy Carter has
likened the PLO to the Ku Klux
Of course, Diplomat Harrod
was careful to hedge his
statement. Along with Alfred L.
Atherton Jr., special U.S. envoy
for Middle East Peace, Harrod
was pointing out that the PLO is
only an "umbrella organization."
And when it rains, diverse Arab
groups may gather under the
same umbrella.
IT IS quite true that, in the
quest for peace, we have to make
careful distinctions among
bandits, hotheads, and some true
lovers of peace in the Arab world.
In the end, consideration has to
be shown for reasonable and
legitimate requests of
Palestinians who became
refugees by following their in-
transigent and belligerent leaders
back in the late 1940s when they
could have had a state of then-
own for the asking.
The children of those original
Palestine refugees and their
grandchildren span 30 years of
discomfort, anguish, and
frustration. They have also been
indoctrinated with an undying
hatred of Israel, partially with
funds supplied by the UN; and
that makes a complex situation
even stickier.
The current Carter reference to
the PLO as a KKK and Nazi-like
entity came in answer to a
question raised during an
Aliquippa, Pa., grassroots
assembly, the kind of gathering
that warms the President's heart.
Why, he was asked, does the U.S.
permit the PLO to operate a
Washington office.
"IT WOULD be nice if they
would just go away," the
President replied after comparing
the terrorists with the KKK, the
Communists and the Nazis, "but
our constitutional guarantee of
free speech enables them to
President Anwar Sadat has not
likened the PLO to the Klan. He
may not even know what the
Klan has been and is. But to his
great credit, the Egyptian
president told the American
Jewish leaders who met with him
at Aswan in January that Cairo
doesn't want the PLO on the
West Bank any more than his
American visitors do.
Further to his credit, Sadat
vigorously condemned the Pales-
tinian terrorists who came
ashore south of Haifa in March,
seized a bus, raced it to the Tel
Aviv area, and caused an ex-
plosion claiming 30 dead and 80

Along with the letter, the
Hapoel officials sent the UOR a
photocopy of Perry's conversion
certificate. The document listed
Rabbi Rabinowitz as the head of
the Beth Din and was signed by
the Beth Din.
THE TEXT of the reply by the
UOR, made available to the JTA
here, signed by Rabbi Haim Zvi
Kruger, chairman of the UOR
family law commission, dated
Oct. 28, read:
"In reply to your letter of Oct.
5, 1978, regarding Aulcie Perry,
as to whether he is considered a
ger halachah (convert according
to Jewish religious law), we wish
to reply that in general all con-
versions of the man who converts
and his Beth Din which is
mentioned in the certificate
hereby enclosed (the photocopy
of the Perry conversion cer-
tificate from Rabinowitz) has no
validity whatsoever, and you
cannot rely on them in anything.
And we do not recognize Aulcie
Perry as one who entered the
Jewish religion by the officiation
of the man who converted him
and his Beth Din afore-
Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi
Shlomo Goren, discussing the
dispute, said in Jerusalem that
the Perry conversion court would
have to be investigated to
determine whether its members
conformed to Orthodox require-
ments, adding the touchstone
should be whether they were
recognized by the Rabbinical
Council of America, reportedly
the largest Orthodox rabbinical
organization in the United
Yediot Achronot, the Israeli
afternoon daily, reported from
New York that Rabbi Louis
Bernstein, a former president of
the Rabbinical Council, said the
Tifereth Israel Beth Din was not
recognized by any Orthodox
organization and that there was
no way of knowing how valid its
conversions might be.
he had been a rabbi for 52 years
and that he had been ordained by
the late Rabbi Avraham Aaron
Yudelovich, whom he described
as a one-time Chief Rabbi of New
York. He said he was not a
member of the UOR or any other
Orthodox rabbinical group.
Rabinowitz said he had
examined Perry's knowledge of
Jewish lore and concluded he was
qualified to become converted.
Since Perry had already been
circumcised, a ceremony was
performed symbolic of a ritual
circumcision and Perry under-
went immersion in a mikveh, as
required for conversion.
Rabinowitz said Perry's con-
version took place Aug. 14.
Rabinowitz challenged the
rejection of his rabbinic authority
to perform conversions and
related religious rites, adding
that such critics would have to
challenge successfully the
validity of his ordination.
WHEN IT was pointed out
that Yudelovich was long since
dead, Rabinowitz said Yudelo-
vich's reputation was an accepted
Rabbi Sholom Rivkin, co-
ordinator of the Rabbinical
Council Beth Din, said, in com-
menting on Rabinowitz's state-
ment to the JTA, that he did not
wish to get into any dispute over
the validity of Rabinowitz's
ordination. He said what was
important was the validity of
religious ceremonies performed
under Rabinowitz's auspices.
Rivkin said Jewish religious
divorces and conversions per-
formed by Rabinowitz are not
accepted by "any authentic
rabbinic court in the world" and
that the Rabbinical Council had
documentation to support that
declaration. According to the
JTA Jerusalem report, the fact
that Perry was Black was adding
to the embarrassment, and that
Maccabi officials said they feared
the incident would be interpreted
abroad as one of racial prejudice.

EDITOR, The Jewish Fhridian:
It was exciting to me to have
my mother visit the Jewish
Community Center on Wed-
nesday, Nov. 1. The director and
office staff provided a beautiful
afternoon for the senior citizens,
which I am most grateful for.
My mother is part of a project
in Miami Beach "Project Vista."
They are all happy, independent
people, and because of this
project, they are given the chance
for a happy survival with dignity.
This program consists of a Day
Care Center, which gives them
love, happiness, understanding
their needs, lectures, arts and
crafts, etc.
As there are many senior
citizens in this area, I would love
to see a project of this kind
initiated in West Palm Beach,
which is so greatly needed.

South County, defined as
Delray Beach and Boca Raton,
presently has a Jewish
population of over 10,000. It is
expected that this population willN
increase to over 22,000 Jews
within the next five years.
Century Village of Boca Raton
is now under construction. When
completed, this development will
include 5,700 units, a great
majority of whom are anticipated
to be Jewish. The Jewish
population is also rapidly in-
creasing in the Kingspoint
development in Delray Beach, in
the private homes west of 1-95 in
Boca Raton and in the oceanfront
highrises. Temple and
Synagogue memberships are
increasing in both Boca Raton
and Delray Beach.

population, the South County

the 1978-79 year in late October.

Begin, Carter Meet in Gotham to Prove There Was No Snub
President Carter and Prime
Minister Menachem Begin of
Israel met for a half-hour last
week at the home of Arthur
Krim, a prominent Jewish
businessman active in Demo-
cratic Party affairs. Both ex-
pressed confidence that an
Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty will
be completed soon.
The meeting was a fund-raising
affair for Gov. Hugh Carey of
New York where the President
invited Begin to join him. About
100 people were present. When
Begin entered, he and Carter
embraced, and the Israeli leader
told the President that real
progress was made in his talks
with Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance here.
BEFORE beginning their
private meeting, the Prime
Minister said he believes a peace
treaty will be signed soon be-
tween Israel and Egypt and that
Carter will sign as a witness.
Carter told the gathering that he
also thinks there will be peace
soon in the Middle East due to
the courage of President Anwar
Sadat of Egypt and Begin.
He said that Begin "has been
willing to put his political future
at stake" in order to achieve
peace in the Middle East.
The Prime Minister presented
Carter with a gift, a book by
Israeli Supreme Court Justice
Chaim Cohen titled The Trial and
Death of Jesus.
BEGIN disclosed, meanwhile,
that in his talks with Vance he
proposed that Israel's with-
drawal from Sinai be financed by
a 25-year low-interest loan from
the U.S. He said that Vance wel-
comed the idea and told him it
would make matters much easier
and that he would discuss it with
The matter will be discussed
further when Israeli Finance
Minister Simcha Ehrlich comes
to Washington this week.
Until now it was understood
that Israel expected the U.S. to
finance the huge costs, estimated
in the billions of dollars, of the
removal of Israeli air bases and
settlements from Sinai. Begin
stressed in his remarks to
reporters that Israel doesn't want
a gift from the U.S. and is asking
only for a loan for that purpose.
BEGIN HAD a meeting in the
afternoon with Yiddish novelist
Isaac Bashevis Singer who he
received in his Regency Hotel
suite. They talked for a half hour.
Singer was awarded the 1978
Nobel Prize for Literature.
Begin is the joint winner of
the 1978 Nobel Peace Prize with
President Anwar Sadat of Egypt.
In the evening, Begin received
the Family of Man Award from

Over 60 members of the new and continuing groups of the Leadership Development Program,

21. The guest speaker was Judge Jerome Hornblass, Criminal Court Judge for the State of New
York, and past co-chairman of the Young Leadership Division of the United Jewish Appeal in
New York City. Hornblass discussed the problems of the Jewish family in today's world, in-
cluding assimilation, intermarriage, sexual ethics and women's liberation.

Earlier, Begin rejected repJ
that President Carter
snubbed him by refusing to;
with him here. Arriving at
nedy International Airport
his wife, Aliza, Begin told
press that there is no
between him and Carter.
The Israeli Prime Ministl
noted that he had "cordial
changes" with Carter during u
previous two days. Begin saidL

Your thirst will tell you-
ked Tetley Tea is iced tea
at its best. Because Tetley
stands up to ice. Its flavor
just won't melt! Tetley is
made with tiny tea leaves
for big flavor. Deep rich

starts out stronger it lasts

vorite in Jewish homes has

Your life-long dream of a trip to
Israel can be a reality. Because now
there are more ways to go to Israel
for less.
For the first time in 40
centuries,you can fly to
Israel for up to 54% less.
At $600 round-trip for a sched-
uled airline, it's the most economical
way to Israel since the parting of the
Red Sea. And if you go as part of a
group, it will only cost you $554-with
the new low airfare. So with all the
money you save on going to Israel,
you'll have more to spend on going
through Israel.
The Bible comes to life in Israel.
In Jerusalem you can slip a prayer
between the ancient stones of the
Western Wall. Or swim at Elat where
the Queen of Sheba once landed.
You can scale historic Mt. Carmel
where the prophet Elijah boldly
challenged the priests of Baal. Or
visit Saf.d, one of the four holy cities
of Judaism.
The Promised Land. Now you can
really get there!
Now charter flights can
go from all over America.
Israel has never been so accessible
to so many Americans. Because
charter flights can now go to Israel
from all over America. So your Travel
Agent can deliver you to the Promised
Land with both a low cost airfare
and an affordable package tour.
The American Dollar:
It travels better in Israel
than in most of Europe.
With all of the ups and downs of
the dollar in Europe, you don't have
to worry about the same kind of
fluctuation in Israel. Whether it's
shopping, dining or sightseeing, you
get more for your dollar in Israel than
you do in most of Europe.
There's never been a better time
to visit Israel. And your Travel Agent
is the expert who can tell you about
the vacation tours and various
requirements and conditions relating
to the new low round-trip airfares.
The place is Israel.The time is now.

One can easily say, for
example, why not a Nobel Peace
Prize to Idi Amin of Uganda in
1978 or, indeed, at any time.
Amin is a professional, and so he
must be accepted or rejected on
professional grounds, which are
clear and empirical.
Amin doesn't pass the rigorous
test of nomination to the Peace
Prize in the same way that
Pauling would not have passed
the rigorous test of nomination to
the prize in chemistry, or Sch-
weitzer to the prize in medicine.
And so Amin is unacceptable.

Kissinger did pass the test as a
nominee for the Peace Prize, but

Terror in the Promised
Land, ABC-TV's hour-long
documentary on
Palestinian terrorism its
roots and its goals, aired
over the entire ABC net-
work of some 200 stations,
will no doubt increase the
average American viewer's
sympathy for the
However, the film can
also boomerang against the
tactics of Palestinian
terrorism. On the eve of the
signing of a peace treaty
between Egypt and Israel,
the violence advocated by
Palestinian leaders can lose
them the public opinion
they are seeking in the
Western world.
THE FILM, which was pre-
screened privately for the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency by ABC, is a
skillful work, professionally
executed and includes authentic
footage of terrorist training and
attacks. Its depiction of the
wretched living conditions of the
Palestinian refugees provides
some very poignant moments.
As a whole, the documentary is
not anti-Israel nor pro-
Palestinian terrorism. But the
viewer is left with the overall
impression that the Israelis, the
target of the outrageous terrorist
acts of which part are shown in
the film, bear the burden of
responsibility for the miserable,
intolerable conditions in which
the refugees live.
For example, refugees are
shown living in poverty and
despair; half naked children walk
in muddy, garbage-filled streets
of the crowded refugee camps;
women mourn after their
dwellings are destroyed by an
Israeli reprisal attack.
THE SCENE then shifts to an
Israeli kibbutz with its green
lawns, swimming pool and small
neat nouses. The conclusion the
viewer draws from this contrast
is obvious, especially when a
member of the kibbutz, in-
terviewed in the film, says with
an obvious expression of unease
on her face, "Yes, we built the
kibbutz on Arab land."
The documentary says that
Israel refuses to allow the
refugees to return to Israel
proper and that the Arab
countries refuse to absorb the
refugees and let them re-build
their lives.
At the same time the
documentary fails to mention
that the Palestinian refugees fled
their homes in what is now Israel
after they were promised by Arab
leaders that they would return to
their homes as soon as Israel was
crushed and that Israel did not
drive them out; that the Arabs
refused to accept the 1947 United
Nations partition plan, including
a Palestinian state; and that
more than 600.000 Jewish
refugees from Arab lands have
been resettled in Israel, and
therefore, a sort of refugee ex-
change took place in the Mideast.
narrator of the documentary,
mentions during the program
that Israeli Agriculture Minister
Ariel Sharon declined to appear
in the film to answer charges that
Israel expropriated Arab land for
its own needs. His refusal is to be
Although there were cases in
which Arabs were forced off their
land by individual Israelis, this
was neither the official pattern
nor policy of the Zionist
movement. Indeed, the official
Zionist policy was to try to find
ways of living harmoniously with
the Arabs and of encouraging the
Arabs to remain.
Reynolds states in the opening
of the broadcast that it is "about
Palestinian men and women who
resort to violence to advance
their political cause. The violence
is often inflicted on innocent
victims as well as on themselves,
for they insist they are prepared
to die to achieve their goal.
THE FILM does not try to
glorify the terrorists, but the
result could be just that.
Throughout the film young
terrorists declare: "We go on
suicidal missions because we
have a cause and principle and a
land," or "better to die in one's
own homeland than outside of
it," or "I don't really care if I am
remembered as a hero after I

The conference was attended
by some 30 teachers from six area
schools who attended a day of
workshops designed to enhance
need for us, as a community, to
provide for increased efforts at
professional growth. No com-
munity is completely unique. Yet
each community has its own

not unique in Palm Beach County
is the preponderance of religious

Where Were You Driving Holidays?
By Rabbi Joel L. Levine
Associate Rabbi, Temple Israel
During the High Holiday
season, do you have a feeling that
you were missing out on some-
thing special? While your friends
were participating in services at
the synagogue of their choice,
were you sitting by the pool, or
perhaps wondering what to do?
Fortunately, there is still time to
get involved in synagogue life.
Our synagogues in Palm Beach
County offer so many activities
for so many different age groups.
The important point to keep in
mind is the importance of the
synagogue. Many of us retire and
come to the Palm Beaches having
been active in our home town
congregation. The sad thing is
that no matter how active we
were, retirement means retire-
ment from synagogue activity as
well. However, without the syna-
gogue, we would not have pro-
duced the leaders of our Jewish
community. Whether it is Fed-
eration, the Jewish Community
Center, or the Day School, the
synagogue through education is
the place where future leaders of
our Jewish community are
trained. Even the smallest
organizations eventually will
need new workers and these
workers will come from the syna-
gogue through our support and
"BUT I WAS active up
north." But what about here?
Should we not be grateful for the
blessings we enjoy in our new life
in this community? Unfor-
tunately, many of us wait until a
tragedy or a death to contact the
synagogue. Many of us treat the
synagogue as a service station,
miraculously appearing when we
need the Rabbi for a funeral or an
unveiling. And then sometimes
complaining that the con-
tribution to the synagogue is too
As we know, people of all social
classes live in Palm Beach
County. The synagogue must
serve the whole house of Israel,
the wealthy, the middle class,
and those in need. God will not
miraculously supply funds for the
synagogue to survive. We cannot
depend on our friends and asso-
ciates to keep the synagogue
alive until the time when we need
it. One of the beautiful ideas of
Judaism is the power of the
individual. Through our creative
initiative, we must bring the
synagogue our special talents,
our interests and our needs.
"But the synagogue does not
meet my needs." Judaism does
not believe in soothsayers. We
cannot anticipate all your needs if
you do not make your needs
known to your synagogue
leaders. Just sitting back and
dismissing the synagogue is like
dismissing the heritage of
Judaism. Everyone is important.
Every need is important. We
want to listen, but where are you?
We want to hear from you.
Palm Beach County is so for-
tunate to have Rabbis, Cantors
and congregational leaders who
do care, who really want to hear
from you. It is not too late to still
make a new resolution. It is not
too late to change part of a
routine or a life-style. It is not too
late to say one Friday evening or
Saturday morning, "It's the
sabbath and I am going to
services." It is not too late to
take advantage of an adult edu-
cation program or a concert.
There are so many synagogues to
choose from. Choose one, or two,
or three. Find out what the syna-
gogue has to offer. For Judaism
is a religion of life. Let us give the
synagogue the spirit of our lives
while that spirit is still burning
brightly within our hearts and

Dear Friend:
Unconscious, about 11 P.M. on Sunday night, July 9th, I was taken
to the Broward General Hospital's Emergency Room. The at-
tending physican worked on me for five hours before I was placed in
% Intensive Care. The doctor told my wife he did not expect me to live'
through the day and ordered her to phone my children to fly down
immediately from New York. I had been stricken by a massive
coronary. When I visited my doctor 6 weeks later, he told my wife
that when he left the Emergency Room July 9th he did not expect
to see me alive again. Thank God for the miracle of my recovery and
the fine progress I am making.
Befc.' being stricken I had been working on what I consider to be
the most important message I have ever sent out from Operation
Truth. Above all, I am grateful to God for having been spared to
transmit to my thousands of readers, what to my mind is a
memorable lesson.
Extravagance is defined in the dictionary as a spending of more
than is reasonable or necessary.
Jews, being unique among the world's people, must create a special
attitude about the word. No other people has endured severe
persecution for thousands of years and at the same time done more
for the benefit of mankind. About us, President John Adams wrote
in 1809, "The Hebrews have done more to civilize men than any
other nation." It is a fact that no group so small has done so much
for all.
Why have the Jews gone through the ages without profiting by
their experience? As a dog who returneth to his vomit, so have we
repeated our fallacious ways. Even after the Hitlerian holocaust we
continue to live as all others a luxury we cannot afford. Vanity
rather than sanity has guided us throughout history.
Now, in this year 1978, we must view extravagance in an entirely
new light. We Jews must live modestly since we should be com-
mitted to the idea that giving to worthy causes is the basic concern
of our lives.
I have lived by that standard since 1946 when I gave $50,000 to
U.J.A. (one fourth of my net worth). My estate will be less than
$150,000. Yet, by digging into the capital of my son's business I
will, with God's aid, give maximum to U.J A. for as long as I live.
In addition, nominal gifts will be given to worthy causes supported
by my foundation since its inception in 1943.
In truth, live so as to give has been my lifestyle, and over 2,000,000
Jews who have read my autobiography know that mine has been a
lifeof ecstacy.
Instead, a Norton Simon, worth over $200,000,000, has an art
collection valued at over $125,000,000, but for many years gave
only fifteen thousand dollars to the Los Angeles Federation. Mark
Taper, recorded as being worth over $200,000,000 according to May
1978 issue of Town and Country magazine, gives inadequately but
lives extravagantly. Armand Hammer, super tycoon, Chairman of
Occidental Petroleum, told my friend, S.L. Hoffman, shortly before
the latter died at age 92, "Tell your friend Goldfarb I will soon make
a monumental gift to the State of Israel." Hoffman phoned me one
night several years ago to tell me the exciting news, which I passed
on to Irving Bernstein of U J.A., but to date "Billionaire" Hammer
has not fulfilled his promise. Recipients of this message who know
Mr. Hammer would favor me greatly by quoting this statement to
I know a number of super-rich people worth upward of $200,000
who give liberally to U.J.A. and many other worthy causes,

of wealth, crave to live so lavishly? Can t they enjoy hfe spen
three or four hundred thousand dollars a year? Is it necessa
them to spend millions for living?
Conspicuous consumption is not only vulgar but immoral,
what Adam Smith said about those who parade their riches,
like BUI Rosenwald (Sears Roebuck), Sam Newhouse number
newspaper publisher), Max Stern (Hartz Mountain) and
Tisch (Loew's) are equally rich, but do not show off their i

Obviously, some of the vast majority with modest means,
nothing about the poor, give nominally. My concern, howev
with the super-rich or even the well-to-do families. They
inadequately, yet live extravagantly. They drive the mos
pensive automobiles, many of them imported. They spend fir1
to decorate their lavish apartments. Many spend a' kmg s ra
for paintings. They stage gala parties and travel as do jet se
Most live it up to the hilt, but give stingily. God knows, I d
envy a single one of them. I know they cannot possibly de-
fraction of the joy of living or peace of mind accruing to me b
of living like a "pauper," but giving like a "prince."
The tragic aspect of those addicted to fancy living is that
tenaciously hold on to their wealth, giving too little while the:
They unwisely leave larger estates than their children requi
sensible living. Hence, the heirs following in the footsteps of
parents, will also live extravagantly and give stingily.
What happens when the inevitable economic breakdown
God forbid that such a time ever come about, but wouldn't it
easier for our children to cope with, if their life style was not
and frivolous? Too, if my contemporaries courageously ma

sensible living and giving by heirs, an economically strong
could be salvation for many of our descendants.
I believe that had Moses brought down from the top o
mountain just one additional Commandment, which we would
followed at least as well as the original ten the Jewish P
would have fared a million percent better than what history r
for the past thousands of years. The Eleventh Comraan
should have been "Thou Shalt Not Live Extravangantly."
Children of Israel at the time of Moses lived in the desert,
extravagance was ruled out by circumstances. But for i
Commandment would be a life saver.
Would it not be wonderful if we Jews were referred to admirab
the religious group having the Eleventh Commandment? The v
would recognize that Jewish women were never befurred, bejew
or bedecked with diamonds. Our homes would be immacu
comfortable and pleasingly decorated, but always in the frame
of modesty.
About us it would be said, "Those Jews are the people who
forbidden to live extravagantly."

Andrew Carnegie [1835-1919]
(The richest man in the U.S.A. prior to the 20th Century)
"This, then, is held to be the duty of the man of wealth: First, to set
an example of modest, unostentatious living, shunning display or
extravagance; to provide moderately for the legitimate wants of
those dependent upon him; and after doing so consider all surplus
revenues which come to him simply as trust funds, which he is
called upon to administer, and strictly bound as a matter of duty to
administer in the manner which, in his judgement, is best calculated
to produce the most beneficial results for the community the man
of wealth thus becoming the mere agent for his poorer brethren,
bringing to their service his superior wisdom, experience, and
ability to administer, doing for them better than they would or
could do for themselves."
Aga Khan III [18771957]
"There is a great deal of truth in Andrew Carnegie's remark: "The
man who dies rich, dies disgraced.' I should add: The man who lives
rich, lives disgraced."
Adam Smith [1723-1790]
"With the great part of rich people, the chief employment of I
riches consists in the parade of riches, which in their eye is never so
complete as when they appear to possess those decisive marks of
opulence which nobody can possess but themselves."
Edward W. Scripps [1854-1926]
"God damn the rich, God help the poor. Our papers desire to be the
poor man's advocate. In fact, I have not a whole series of jour-
nalistic principles. I have only one principle, and that is represented
by an effort to make it harder for the rich to grow richer and easier
for the poor to keep from growing poorer."
Henry David Thoreau [1817-1862]
"Superfluous wealth can buy superfluities only."
Henry George [1839-1897]
"So long as all the increased wealth which modern progress brings
goes out to build up great fortunes, to increase luxury, and make
sharper the contest between the House of Have and the House of
Want, progress is not real and cannot be permanent."
