Christians and Zoroastrians,
would have "full civil rights

But Rohani told Gold and
Mariaschian that these rights
would not apply to the some
200,000 to 300,000 members of

world center is in Haifa. The

Peace; Yes, No?

one-on-one meetings
between President Carter
and Prime Minister Mena-
chem Begin ended Sunday
amid rumors of a possible
shift in the U.S. position.
By early Monday, there
were reports that Prime
Minister Begin had reacted
favorably to a peace bid by
President Carter with what
was rumored to be the
construction of a U.S. Air
Base in the Sinai once the
evacuation of the peninsula
took place.
SUNDAY, Begin called on the
U.S. to "talk to the Egyptians."
He vowed repeatedly that Israel
would not sign what amounts to
a "sham document," involving
the right of Egypt to give
priority to its agreements with
other Arab nations in the event of
a war between Israel and the
Arabs, and also to force Israel
into linking a timetable to Israeli
withdrawal from the Sinai with
autonomy for the Arabs of Gaza
and on the West Bank.
Nevertheless, peace hopes were
still vaguely alive, particularly
when one unnamed Israeli official
called Carter's latest bid "impor-
tant and interesting."
Meanwhile, Prime Minister
Begin left Washington for New
York and talks with important
Jewish leaders there. A U.S.
source emphasized that Carter
and Begin have no plans to meet
again, and it declared that
Israel's reaction would come
"through more routine means"
perhaps through the Israeli
Embassy in Washington.
all the flurry of excitement about
a possible breakthrough, none
was really at hand. Furthermore,
it emphasized the probability
that what Carter had offered did
not involve security measures at
all, nor would it lead to a larger
U.S. presence in the Middle East,
specifically not in the Sinai.
The President, himself, offered

Recently, the. .Iranian govern-
ment had imposed a $3,000 limit
on the amount of assets that
could be taken out of the country.
ROUHANI said that Iran will
not sell oil to Israel, South Africa
or Rhodesia, Gold said. He noted
that the Iranian spokesman
indicated that Iran would not
participate in any military efforts
against Israel since it expects to
be chiefly concerned with
domestic problems for the next
three to five years.
This is expressed in a report on
the prospects for Iran by Dr.
George E. Gruen, the AJCom-
mittee's director of Middle East
affairs. The report said Iranian
rabbis welcomed Khoumeini
when he returned from France
and "were received cordially."
AFTER THE government of
Prime Minister Shapur Bakhtiar
collapsed, Khoumeini "received a
large delegation from the Iranian
Jewish community and welcomed
them warmly and again
reassured them of full rights so
long as they did not engage in
'treason.' "
Century Campaign
Nears Record Goal
Based on returns and interim
reports at the first major report
meeting of the Century Village
Division on Feb. 28, prospects
are bright for surpassing the
division's record goal of $100,000
on behalf of the 1979 Combined
Jewish Appeal-Israel Emergency
Fund campaign.
Encouraged by the $90,000
from several thousand con-
tributions turned in to date, Abe
Bisgaier and Rev. Martin Adolf,
co-chairmen of the Century
Village unit, are confident the
quota set at the start of the
campaign will be exceeded.
Section chairmen reporting totals
already over the top are Louis A.
Brown of Andover; Isabella Fink
of Berkshire; Louis Perlman of
Coventry; Nathan Cohen of
Greenbrier; Robert Cahn of
Hastings and William Epstein of
Nearing their goals are
Malcolm Pitkin of Cambridge;
Lil Rosenzweig ot Dorchester;
Sol Margolis of Dover; Louis
Bailey of Oxford; Louis Wein-
stein of Plymouth; Bella Bobman
of Salisbury; Ada Columbus of
Somerset; Max Kelman of
Stratford; Sam Durbin of
Wellington, Robert Ketzis of
Southampton; Sol Ganeles and
Ben Sherman of Windsor;
Millicent Goldstein and Henry
Boodman of Golfs Edge; and
Sybil Senecoff of Chatham. These
sections, along with several
sections that only recently
started active solicitation, are
expected to reach their goals by
the next report meeting.
Augmenting the campaign
results were reports of special
efforts by Congregation Anshei
Sholom under Louis Perlman,
Congregation Eitz Chayim
headed by Morris Sternheim and
the Yiddish Culture Club led by
Nathan Berlin.

are right to be angered by Sen. Adlai Stevenson's bill
to eliminate the need for assurances by the Soviets
on emigration before getting the full benefits of Most
Favored Nation status.
The Illinois Democrat's move would modify the
Jackson-Vanik Amendment restricting trade
benefits to the Soviet Union and, potentially, China.
What it can all be traced to is the current
maneuvering on Capitol Hill to give China the
benefits of Most Favored Nation status as part of our
normalization of relations with Peking.
How to do that without angering the Soviets?
The administration's solution, which the Stevenson
bill proposes, would change the Jackson-Vanik
restrictions should the President determine that
granting trade benefits would "lead substantially to
the achievement of the free emigration objectives"
that Jackson-Vanik aims to coerce out of the Soviets.
The Stevenson bill, in effect, gives the Kremlin
what it wanted all along. In return, the Kremlin gives
us nothing.
Meanwhile, those poor Soviet Jews, which is
what it was all about to begin with.
Our Saudi Policy
What upsets Saudi Arabia these days is not the
Islamic ideology of the Ayatollah Khoumeini
revolution in Iran but its explosive radicalism. It is
not unreasonable to assume that, if it happened in
Iran, it can also happen to the Saudis.
After all, many of the factors that brought
success to the Khoumeini movement prevail in Saudi
Arabia. Corruption and scandal, for one. Gross
inequality reflected by immense wealth alongside
dire poverty, for another.
As angers fester, there is in Saudi Arabia the
presence of some one million foreign workers
Muslims from Pakistan, Yemen and the ubiquitous
Palestinians all of them just hankering to launch a
All of which is by way of wondering what the
U.S. is doing to ward off the possibility in this vast
oil pipeline to the gluttony of American energy
needs. Our own assessment is that President Carter
is doing about as much there as he did in Iran.
And just about as effectively.
Brother Billy Rebuked
We are delighted to note that President Carter
has finally taken a firm stand against brother Billy's
obnoxious and dangerous anti-Semitic comments.
"They are," says the President, "foreign to every-
thing about the way we live."
But why does he have to blame Billy's erratic
behavior and revolting opportunism on his brother's
"health," who suddenly and rather conveniently
finds himself hospitalized?
What is worse, why does he leave it to Robert
Strauss, who is his special U.S. trade representative,
to spread the word about the President's disturbance
with Billy? Not because Strauss is Jewish, of course

Orientals Want Falasha Influx
THE SUDDEN influx of some
28,000 Ethiopian Blacks, who are
popularly known as Falasha
Jews, may well impose a disas-
trous socio-economic burden on
Israel that the nation is at this
time hardly prepared to deal
Yet pressure keeps mounting,
both in Israel and America, to do
just that. In previous columns
here over the past two weeks, I
have endeavored to explain why.
THE AMERICAN pressure is
simplistic and may best be
understood in civil libertarian
terms: Damn the price of a mass
Ethiopian Black influx into
Israel; some 28,000 "Jewish"
souls are at stake.

campaign contingent as Prof.

Director of Public Relations
president of the American Asso-
ciation for Ethiopian Jews,
brings skilled academic docu-
mentation to his "proof that the
Falashas are indeed Jews for
those who may have some
doubts. This is intended to bring
converts to the cause.
In Israel, the pressure is a far
more complex phenomenon.
Despite recent statements
favoring the influx by both Chief
Ashkenazic Rabbi Shlomo Goren
and Chief Sephardic Rabbi
Ovadia Yossef, there can be no
denying that the Sephardic com-
munity has a far greater stake in
the future of the Falashas than
do the Ashkenazim.
IN FACT, it is the Ashkena
zim, Rabbi Goren notwithstand-
ing, who see the proposed mass
influx as a threat and who have
been opposing it from the begin-
ning. That is why Prof. Lenhoff's
statement in a recent protest to
Prime Minister Begin about an
official "circle of silence" on the
subject is manifestly correct.
Why is the country divided
between Ashkenazim and
Sephardim on the Falashas? One
reason is that the Sephardim,
who constitute Israel's Oriental
Jewish community, have from
the beginning of statehood seen
themselves cast in the role of the
country's "coloreds."
Repeatedly over the years, I
have myself been told by Israeli
officials here and in Jerusalem
that the Sephardim are "unedu-
cable," both academically and
technologically, beyond a certain
point, which I interpolate as
roughly half-way through an
American high school, if that.
THE REASONS given are
The severe Orthodox up-
bringing of Oriental Jews, who
place little and in some cases no
premium on secular studies;
Middle Eastern tradition
that is, by its nature, out of touch
with western technological
civilization a civilization which
counts in its intellectual phalanx
the elite of Ashkenazic Jewry;
A spiritual Weltanschauung
that assesses European Ashken-
azic experience as a condition of
bastardy in Jewish history and
even prohibits "intermarriage"
with Ashkenazim in the same
way that western Jews hope to

Iranian Jewish Future in Doubt?
Director, Middle East Affairs
American Jewish Committee
As the revolutionary move-
ment spearheaded by Ayatollah
Ruhollah Khomeini appears to be
successfully consolidating its
power in Iran, the Ayatollah and
his spokesmen abroad have
stepped up their efforts to
reassure the Jewish world that
Iran's Jewish community has
nothing to fear from an Islamic
Republic. Such assurances are
certainly to be welcomed, but
there continues to be concern
that the Ayatollah's repeatedly
declared hostility to the State of
Israel may spill over in the minds
of the populace into animosity
toward the local Jewish com-
munity as well.
On Sunday, Feb. 11, rioting
demonstrators broke down the
gates surrounding the unofficial
Israeli trade mission in Teheran,
ransacked the reception room and
ran up the Palestine Liberation
Organization banner. The mob
also attacked the Egyptian Em-
bassy presumably because of
Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat's readiness to make peace
with Israel and the welcome he
extended to the Shah.
groups, who benefited from the
Shah's rule.
ALREADY a group of armed
urban guerrillas briefly stormed
the American Embassy on Feb.
14 and held it until Khomeini's
followers persuaded them to
release the Americans to them.
Some of the Iranian opponents of
the Shah have received military
training in PLO camps in

During the frenzied climax of
the revolution, countless
weapons were seized by the
masses from army and police
arsenals. The Ayatollah has
appealed for the return of these
weapons, but the danger remains
that these arms may be used by
extremist elements of either the
j right or the Communist Left to
foment political turmoil or to
settle scores against individuals,
especially members of minority
European representative of the
American Jewish Committee,
questioned Ayatollah Khomeini
outside Paris concerning his
attitude toward the Jewish com-
munity. The response, as trans-
lated by Dr. Ibraham Yazdi, was
that the Ayatollah had already
two months earlier reassured a
visiting Iranian Jewish
delegation that they would have
"full rights and protection, as did
all other religious minorities, and
need not fear for their future."
This message was reportedly
taped and distributed throughout
the mosques in Iran. Dr. Yazdi
has since been named Deputy
Prime Minister in charge of
"matters of the revolution."
Shahriar Rouhani and Reza
Sadri, two representatives of the
Ayatollah in the United States,
were asked at a meeting with
Bertram H. Gold of A J Com-
mittee and Daniel Mariaschin of
the Anti-Defamation League
whether this meant full political
as well as religious rights.
Rouhani replied this meant
"full civil rights both political
and religious" and that these
rights would also be given to
other religious groups such as
Christians and Zoroastrians.
Such rights would not be ex-
tended to the Baha'is, however,
since these were regarded as a
political group rather than a
religious minority.
The Baha'is, followers of an
eclectic, universalist religion
which split off from Islam in the
19th century, have been per-
secuted as heretics by funda-
mentalist Muslims. They found a
haven and established their world
center in Haifa. In recent years
they were tolerated and given
some prominent positions by the
Shah in Iran.
ROUHANI, who is spokesman
for Khomeini's Interim Com-
mittee to Oversee the Activities
of the Iranian Diplomatic Corps
in the United States, stated
categorically that Iranian Jews
would be allowed to sell their
property and go wherever they
wanted, including Israel. Until
now, Iranian Jews have been free
to travel, but in recent months
the Iranian government had
imposed a limit of $3,000 on the
amount of assets that could be
taken out.
Rouhani expressed the hope
that Iranian Jews would choose
not to leave but would help to
create the kind of society u

understanding of a person who
ias "traveled the same road"
#hich he or she is passing
through and one who has learned
how to cope with a very difficult
phase of life.
In December 1976 the Jewish
Comunity Center of Palm Beach
vas the first agency in the state
of Florida to initiate a Widowed
to Widowed Program. Philip
Weinstein of Levitt Memorial
Chapel was instrumental in
-/Enveloping this program at the
fclCC along with JCC staff. He
"was most supportive in providing
material and tapes which he had
received at various Widowed to
Widowed and Death and Dying
Seminars. Bi-monthly workshops
were held with guest speakers
usually a psychologist, who in his
presentation encouraged a free
exchange of experiences in living
and coping with being alone.
Charlotte Berlind became the
first president.
The staff coordinator,
president and chairperson were
always present at these meetings.
At the end of the sessions,
refreshments were served, social-
ization and discussion took place,
encouraging persons to get to
know one another. Gradually,
most of the participants
"graduated" to the social level,
taking advantage of the many on-
going classes, trips, discussions,
films and lectures offered by the
Jewish Community Center.
They became part of the world
again and learned how to cope
and function as a single person.
About eight months ago the JCC,
along with the JF 9 CS, was
asked to participate in starting
an AARP-sponsored county wide
Widowed Persons Service. The
experiences of the Jewish Com-
munity Center Widowed to Wid-
owed Program were most
beneficial in organizing this new

Levitt Memorial Chapel;
Charlotte Berlind, Sue Levi,
program coordinator; Fran Witt,
JCC administrative assistant;
Jean Rubin, Senior Center

The JCC and JF & CS have
been very active in the establish-
ment of this new countywide

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
An open letter to Leo Mindlin:
Although I concur with the
intent of your column "Impera-
tive Need (for Israel) To Speak
Out" in the Feb. 23 issue of the
Floridian, I must take critical
exception to its disparaging tone
and content, with the further
.comment "EtTu Brutus."
If your many trips to Israel did
more than incite your ir-
responsible tirade against the
State and the people as being
haughty, indecent and indifferent
to visiting journalists, you would
have better served the Jewish
nation by remaining at home.
Your presumption to speak for
other journalists is highly
questionable. As for yourself, is it
possible that your personal
behavior or adversely presented
writings or expressions are
responsible for this reaction?
What good (although your
intentions may be sincere, giving
you the benefit of doubt) have
you done for Israel by your
denigrating bombast, at a point
in time when Israel needs all of
our moral and intellectual
support and understanding of her
plight. Your journalistic affront
to these beautiful people and
their courageous government
gbviously did not take into ac-
ount the miracles they have per-
I formed in the short span of 30
| years.
Yes, they are a special People
of the Book (Bible) and the Land
i of the Bible who have pulled
themselves up by their boot
straps, bringing credibility, self-
respect and self-reliance to all
world Jewry in spite of a
millennium of degradation, dis-
persion, brutality and the
ultimate tragedy, the Holocaust.
| What other nation can point to
I such a survival?
What is self-deluding, as you
claim about these truths, and
may I remind you, "If we forget
the past, we are doomed to repeat
(it. '
Israel is not "indifferent" to
the importance of a public sym-
pathetic response being totally

I Semites. Can't you perceive that

A Very Gracious Lady
The Women's Division of the Jewish Federation of
Palm Beach County held its annual award-winning
Burdines event last month. I planned to arrive an hour
before the program began to hold an exclusive interview
with Moriah Blum, wife of Israels new Ambassador to
the United Nations, and guest speaker for the evening.
The Federation had received a call in the morning from
the embassy stating that Mrs. Blum would only grant an
interview to the local Jewish press and not the overall
media. I was told a special room would be set aside for the
interview; however, when I reached the second floor of
Burdines I was unable to find Mrs. Blum. When I asked
one of the hostesses where I might find her, she smiled
and pointed in the direction of the kitchen. There was
Moriah Blum, holding a large tray of cups which she was
setting on the various dinner tables. Only after she
completed her self-imposed duties was I able to coax her
away for the interview.
Pictured above are Moriah Blum (left), wife of Israel's new
Ambassador to the United Nations, and guest speaker at the
Women's Division Burdines event; and Ronni Tartakow,
director of public relations of the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County. '

Israel and had to interrupt these
studies to come here. How do you
feel about that?
Answer: it was very hard after
15 years to decide to go back to
school, I was scared. I thought I
wouldn't be able to keep up with
the other students ... but it was
so marvelous. Every moment for
me was precious because I knew I
was stealing it from the house
and from the children. So, I
studied real hard and thought
this time I'm going to finish my
major work. Then I found out I
was going to have to accompany
my husband here. He asked me in
the beginning "Would you be
willing to go along with the
program? I know that you have
to give up a lot, friends and
family." 1 told him that it was
such a chance for his career. He
had been teaching the United
Nations all his life, and this time
he would be doing what he's been
leaching. I couldn't let him down.
Question: What do you feel is
the role of a Jewish woman in
today's society?
Answer: I think that the most
important roie is education. She
should put the emphasis on
educating her children and then
in helping the Jewish com-
munities all over the world. And I
also think a woman should find
happiness in her role, in her
career, and advance in a society
where she is doing the utmost
and best that she can ... I think
every woman should have the
chance to do that.
(Moriah Blum addressed the
women at Burdines later on that
evening. She captured the love
and admiration of all who met
her, and we left with the feeling
that Israel had not only given us
a new "Ambassador," but a very
gracious lady.)

American-Jewish Artist Exhibits at Norton
Editor's Note: The Jack
Levin* Retrospective Exhibition
is at the Norton Gallery in Palm
Beach through March 25.
Temple Aaron,
St. Paul, Minn.
It is entirely appropriate that
the picture gracing the cover of
the Jack Levine Retrospective
Exhibition catalogue be a
reproduction of his lovely work
entitled King David. For in
beautiful tones he has captured
the sweet singer of Israel and at
the same time has revealed his
own talents as a first rank artist
on the American Jewish scene.
Here the Oriental potentate
thoughtfully reflects on his
colorful life, and in this
retrospective of the 180 examples
of Jack Levine's work one has the
opportunity to reflect on his
colorful career.
Like the Hebrew prophets,
Jack Levine is concerned with the
condition of man. He is un-
sparing in his commentary on the
signs of our times. Policemen and
perpetrators, banality and
brutality, racism and reac-
tionaries, tyranny and the third
world, decadence and democracy
are all summoned to his canvas.
He is a gifted and sometimes
savage social critic and, like
prophetic texts, he smashes us
with his insight and directness.
Indeed, his Reluctant Plowshare
refers to Isaiah 2:4, "And they
shall beat their swords into
plowshares and their spears into
pruning hooks: nation shall not
lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any
THE CAREER of Jack Levine
is the sometime story of many
modern Jews. His parents Mary
and Samuel Levine came to
America from Lithuania and
settled in Boston. It was in the
Jewish ghetto that their
youngest son Jack was reared.
There are poignant memories
of the way he kept his pencils,
crayons and papers in the oven of
the coal stove in the winter and
in the icebox in the summer. He
began to attend the Boston
Museum of Fine Arts, came
under the influence of Dr.
Den man Ross, founder of the
Harvard Art Department, and
gradually was introduced to the
great masters of the European
tradition. His innovative "taffey
pull" technique is often at-
tributed to the influence of El
Greco. Perhaps, there is a hidden
relationship here because some
students of history maintain El
Greco was a Marrano Jew
because of his strange non-
Spanish name and the fact that
he lived in the ghetto section of
Levine's career as an artist was
abruptly interrupted when he
was drafted in 1942. While in
Georgia, so the story goes, he
was busy one day mopping the
mess hall. Summoned by a phone
call, he learned that his String
Quartette had won a $3,000
second prize at the Metropolitan
Museum's exhibition "Artists for
Victory." He was quickly
promoted to private first class,
removed from "KP" duty and
placed on camouflage work in
order to protect his hands.
In the 1940's Levine began
work on a series of paintings with
Hebrew themes which reveal the
introspective and thoughtful side
of his personality. His father's
death and the following sense of
loss of the past was, perhaps,
that which awakened his desire to
come closer to the Jewish
tradition. His series "Teachers
and Kings" (rabbanim
umelachim) begins in this period.
In the painting David, the king is
at his harp, but his strength and
his shrewdness is revealed. King
Saul is the brooding monarch,
torn and conflicted. Hillel is the
gentle, thoughtful sage. King
Asa is an aging king lost in his
thoughts. Yehudah, the fourth
son of Jacob, is pictured as the
strong fearless leader. In the
painting a lion, symbol of the
Lion of Judah, bites his hand
with no apparent effect.
THE MOST striking of the
series is Maimonides. Here the
great physician, Talmudist and
philosopher clearly stands forth
as a person of intellect. His sharp
piercing eyes reveal his clarity of
thought and decisive abilities.
The disproportionately large and
fleshy head emerges from the
scholarly scarlet robes and
emphasizes the mind. Levine here
clearly is more interested in the
personality than the surroun-
The students and faculty of
The Jewish Theological Seminary
were first introduced to the work
of Jack Levine when he was
commissioned to do a portrait of
the revered doyen of Jewish
history, Prof. Alexander Marx.
When the portrait was first hung,
there was an expression of sharp
negative and positive comments
as is typical of the critical
comments on all his work.
However, as the years passed and
generations of students looked
upon this portrait, they gradually
saw the true scholarship of Marx
preserved and the greatness of
Levine emerge. Today it is in an
honored position gracing the
walls of the Seminary.
The paintings assembled under
the category "Women" are
particularly soft and touching.
He captures the lovely innocence
of his daughter in Portrait of
Susanna. With equal tenderness,
seasoned with respect for her
intellect and talent as an artist,
he pays tribute to his wife in
Portrait of Ruth. One could
describe this as the visual ex-
pression of Chapter 31 of the
Book of Proverbs, the classic
ayshet chayil, "woman of valor."
Levine uses the traditional
method of identifying paintings
with names, and he uses four
Hebrew terms with strong effect.
Shammai stamps the loyal,
determined rabbinic Jew. Adam
and Chava delineate Adam and
Eve and captures them in a time
stopping painting where we can
study at leisure the moment of
temptation in Eden and the *
whole human race. $ \

The most symbolic com-
mentary on the Levine
Retrospective Exhibition is,
perhaps, to be found in the oil
painting Jacob Wrestling With t
The Angel executed in 1975. In
burnt orange and browns it' is
a mystic and powerful in-
terpretation of the passage in the
Bible in which Jacob becomes
Israel. At the end of the struggle,
Jacob says to the angel {Genesis
32:27): "I will not let you go,
unless you bless me." Similarly,
Jack Levine has said to his
palette, his talent and his ideas,
"I will not let you go, unless you
bless me." He has received that
blessing and through it he has
blessed us with great works.

Treasury Preparing Austerity Budget
The Treasury was reported to be
preparing an austerity economic
program in an all-out attempt to
fight inflation. According to
Yediot 'Achronot's economic
correspondent, the plan, designed
to soak up some IL 10 billion
annually, includes a five percent
levy on income tax, in effect a tax
on taxes.
Finance Minister Simcha
Khrlich promptly denied that
there was any move to increase
taxes. He insisted there were no
new economic plans at this time
and that he has not even studied
working papers for any. The
Yediot correspondent said the
plan is still in its initial stages
and probably would undergo a
number of changes before it is

a rather bleak assessment of his
talks with Prime Minister Begin
during a Bible class he conducted
at the First Baptist Church in
As the talks opened on March'
1, obvious tension between the)
Carter Administration and the
Israeli government appeared
Only a few hours before the
first Carter-Begin meeting since
the Camp David agreements were
signed last September, the White
House sought to portray the
Carter Administration as an
honest intermediary between
Israel and Egypt with peace
between them as its goal. But
reports persisted that the U.S.
had warned Israel last week to
agree to a pact with Egypt within
10 days or face serious reprisals.
Administration's pro-Egyptian
position continued to be clearly
visible. For the first time, too, the
Administration pointed out that
Egypt's "security" was involved
along with Israel's and the
national interests of the U.S. in
the attainment of an Israeli-
Egyptian agreement as part of a
"comprehensive peace."
This was stated twice by
Presidential Press Secretary
Jody Powell in briefing reporters
on the Begin-Carter meeting.
Earlier, National Security
Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, in
a television interview, said the
Administration's goal is a treaty
between Egypt and Israel that
will include means for a wider
agreement in the Middle East.
No time was lost in opening the'
meeting between the two leaders,
some two hours after Begin
arrived at Andrews Air Force
Base on his "official visit."
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance
welcomed him and escorted him
to Blair House from where Begin
went to the White House to meet
State Dep't. Official Tagged as Nazi
former Ukrainian, currently a
professor of archaeology and
anthropology at Long Island
University, has identified Con-
stantin Varvariv, chief of the
UNESCO office in the State
Department, as a Nazi whom he
knew personally in the Ukrainian
city of Rovno where both resided.
The professor, Dr. George
Szumowski, whose archaeological
researches in Africa had led to
the discovery of hitherto lost
Jewish tribes about which this
writer had written several expo-
sitions, made his revelations
about Varvariv s past association
with the Nazis during an ex-
clusive interview with me here at
the UN where he comes fre-
quently as a representative of a
Ukrainian-American publication.
The Varvariv case was resur-
rected last August when I sent
out a story noting that the USSR
Mission to the UN had issued a
release which disclosed that
Moscow had handed over to the
American authorities inves-
tigative data exposing Varvariv
as "an accomplice of the Nazis
during World War II."
THE SOVIET release, citing
facts and figures and which con-
tained a list of alleged witnesses,
further noted that Varvariv was
involved in a November, 1971
pogrom in Rovno where some
17,000 Jews were murdered.
The Los Angeles B'nai B'rith
Messenger featured the story on
the front page of its Aug. 11,
1978 issue along with a partial
reproduction of the USSR release
captioned, "A Nazi Accomplice
in the State Department of the
Publication of the expose
created quite a stir. Varvariv
himself wrote a strong letter of
protest to the editor of the
Messenger in which he com-
plained that he'' was shocked and
deeply saddened by our Aug. 11
'expose' linking me with the Nazi
atrocities during World War II."
Charging, among other things,
that the "evidence" against turn
I had been "KGB-manufactured,"
he concluded his letter by
quoting a passage from the New
- Testament a passage used for
centuries by most anti-Semites
V against the Jews.
HE WROTE: "As one whose
friendship for the Jewish people
is lifelong, I can only repeat to
Mr. Horowitz and the paper's
publisher, Mr. Cummins, the bib-
lical proverb: 'Father, forgive
them, for they know not what
they do.' Has Varvariv for-
gotten that the tragic event at
Golgotha was perpetrated by the
Romans and not by the Jews?
The Varvariv expose prompted
some action by the State Depart-
ment itself. A Miss Mary Ann
Bader wrote a letter in which she
enclosed a copy of a com-
munication the Under Secretary
of State for Management, Ben H.
Read, had sent to Varvariv. In
this letter he stated, among other
things, that "the Department's
investigation found no evidence
whatsoever to support the
allegations and charges against
you You are commended for
your courageous and forthright
action in immediately bringing to
the attention of your superiors
the attempt by Soviet represen-
tatives to suborn you."
In the meantime, JTA's
Washington correspondent.
Joseph Polakoff, checked further
into the Varvariv case and, while
he noted the Read letter, he
reported that "a spokesman for
the House Judiciary Subcom-
mittee on Immigration, which is
investigating alleged Nazis who
entered the U.S., said that it does
not have Read's letter and does
not consider the (Varvariv) case
with the President shortly af-
NO DINNER was planned at
this meeting.
Regional and bilateral matters
and Israeli-Egyptian peace nego-
tiations were on the agenda.
"Obviously," Powell said, "the
security of I srael and the security
of the national interests of the
United States and, for the record,
also of Egypt, do have a
relationship for the security of
the region."
He repeated virtually the same
sentence shortly afterwards when
asked if Begin s criticism of
Egypt's new terms for a treaty
"go too far in jeopardizing
regional security."
commented three times last week
on the Egyptian-Israeli situation,
and officials at the White House
and State Department leaked
information to selected reporters,
Powell insisted, "We're going to
do our best to avoid any public
statements or actions that would
tend to make this process
which everybody recognizes as
difficult more difficult" f
He emphasized "our concern"
is for the "consequences" should
the Camp David frameworks fail.
He said the U.S. would "explore
every opportunity" in the Begin-
Carter meetings and "the sub-
sequent discussions" to reach
"an early conclusion" between
Egypt and Israel "as a first step

however, consider the yarmulke
optional, and, at times, have even
been opposed to it.
IN CITIES with large Jewish
populations, yarmulkes are now a
common sight at movie theatres,
sports stadiums and concerts in
the park. Once, that was not the
case. Arthur Hertzberg said that
the difference between the
campus during his student days
and the campus today is that, in
his youth, no one wore a yar-
mulke on campus, but no one
came to school on Yom Kippur.
Today, there are many yar-
mulkes, but there are also
students coming to school on
Yom Kippur. Religious ob-
servance, he concluded, has
Just as body language is

is more and more widely consi-
dered a key to an individual's re-
ligious ity.
Small yarmulkes, while looked
on with scorn by the more
religious, are seen as a way for
young men to appear modern,
more modern at least, than those
wearing yarmulkes which cover
the whole head. Such men are
still within the boundaries of
halacha, though by Jewish law, a
yarmulke must be minimally the
size of the wearer's fist.
THE FABRIC of the yarmulke
also counts. Woolen, as opposed
to silk (except when the silk
yarmulke is acquired at a simcha,
in which case the fabric is
irrelevant) often marks the
wearer as less machmir
In Israel, the knitted yarmulke
of modern Orthodox males has
become an anathema to right-
wing or Hassidic Jews, and a
symbol of the finest of moral and
spiritual values to secular Jews
like Ephraim Kishon, who once
devoted an entire column to the
phenomenon of the knitted
A young man from a Ferer

pinning up his longish hair under

family get-togethers. To his

bearing a design or his son's
name in Hebrew would have been
as unacceptable as going bare-
IN CERTAIN families, a
yarmulke may be worn without
conviction simply to please one's
family. A tourist in Israel for the
first time noticed two young
yarmulke-covered boys on Mount
Herzl take coins from their
pockets on Shabbat. When the
tourist asked how they could
wear yarmulkes while handling
money on the Sabbath, they
responded that their father was
religious and expected them to
wear yarmulkes. But that didn't
affect their own lifestyle.
Then there are those for whom
the yarmulke is replaced by a hat.
Basically these individuals fall
into two categories: 1) those
whose self-consciousness
prevents them from feeling
comfortable with a blatant
yarmulke but whose religious
convictions or positions demand
that they should cover their
heads these boys and men will
use anything from baseball bats
to berets as long as their heads
are covered; 2) those men for
whom the yarmulke is insuffi-
cient coverage these tend
towards black or at least dark
colored hombergs, with their

observant though they are, who
work in offices where they would
feel highly uncomfortable and
visible were they to wear yar-
mulkes or hats. They go bare-
headed but will non-self-
consciously don yarmulkes when
going out to lunch with their non-
observant Jewish or non-Jewish
business associates.
Obviously, the symbolism of
the yarmulke has changed in
recent years. It has become, in
many cases, a sign of ethnic
identity rather than of the degree
of the wearer's religiousity. At a
recent Council of Jewish
Federation convention, two
young men wearing kippot were
seen in a restaurant eating ham
sandwiches. It's a new
phenomenon when students at
Hebrew Union College, studying
to become Reform rabbis or
cantors, are seen wearing yar-
mulkes while eating in the dining
The yarmulke has also become
a symbol of the schizoid ten-
denices of modern Orthodoxy or
right-wing Conservatism. Young
men are seen on the dance floor
doing the "bump" or even going
into X-rated movies wearing their
THERE HAS long been a fiery
debate as to whether men about
to perform questionably halachic
behavior should remove their
yarmulkes or whether they
should wear them at all times
regardless of what they're doing.
A well-known Orthodox rabbi
spoke recently to his stunned
congregation, composed
primarily of singles, of young
men going on dates with their
teffilin for the morning after. One
wonders whether in episodes of
pre-maritial sex these same
young men don or remove their
Yarmulke symbolism is no
longer even limited to the male.
Lately, there are small, but in-
creasing numbers of women
wearing yarmulkes in shul either
out of ignorance, rebelliousness
or because they have neglected to
wear hats or scarves.
ON THE OTHER side of the
spectrum, a small percentage of
the growing number of women
using tallis and tefellin are
wearing yarmulkes as a direct
religious obligation together with
the men. This bodes that new and
and the American Nazis.
Noting that the legation was
housed in a building owned by
the local Jewish community,
Greenberg pointed out that the
seizure was in fact an ex-
propriation of Iranian Jewish
property, an act that Khomoini
promised he would not take.
Greenberg went on U> say that
if there are any remaining doubts
about Arafat's intentions to
destroy Israel, "they should
finally have been dispelled by
events in Teheran." He called the
takeover "a highly symbolic
action" in keeping with Arafat's
"ever present aim eventually to
take over the Israeli parliament
building and, in fact, everything
else in Israel."
However, Greenberg expressed
the hope that the wer'.end's
events "merely reflect ....e un-
certainties of the moment and do
not foreshadow the future
policies of the new Iranian
"It is our hope," he concluded,
"that the new regime will adopt a
constructive policy which will
promote peace and stability in
the region and will provide for the
protection of the human rights of
all its people."
different symbolism for the
yarmulke will constantly crop up
in the future.
One thing seems certain: the
yarmulke is here to stay. Along
with forefather Jacob, our men
and some of our women go

Nobel Winner Singer
Takes Up New Role as UM Teacher
Jewish Floridian Writer
Chauffeuring their in-
structor from his Surfside
condominium to their Coral
Gables classroom is an
added bonus for University
of Miami students enrolled
in this writing class. Oh, his
wife may call you aside and
suggest that you drive
slowly, but that's easily
done for the additional
private time with a Nobel
Prize winner.
"He looks so quiet, but he has
a marvelous ability to draw you
out. Hell, he gets your whole life
history," said student Barbara
Morris of Coral Gables, who re-
cently made the drive with Isaac
Bashevis Singer.
"He really listens and enjoys
people," she elaborated, and
when they stopped for coffee
after class, she found herself
telling him about skeletons in the
family closet. "He said, 'That's a
great story. You better write it or
I will.' "
SINGER HAS told his
students that they can't really
learn to write from another
writer, and he insists he is not at-
tempting to make them all Isaac
Singers. "But I assume they all
want to reach the highest peaks
in literature, and I appraise them
from this point of view," he told
The Jewish Floridian. "I assume
they want to be strong writers."
Each week a student reads his
story to the class, and Singer and
the students critique the work.
"He's so-oo kind," said Ms
Morris. "He gives positive
reinforcement, never just cuts
you down. You have to listen to
know you've been criticized."
Listening to student Laurence
Pamer read his short story.
Family Heirlooms, in a recent
class. Singer stops him at the
mention of Florsheims. "We
write under the illusion that
people will read us 40-50 years
from now. By using trade names,
you doom the story. You should
be more precise. What's a
especially in America," says
Singer, but one that the writer
wont make "if he has hope he
will be translated in other
languages. What will the people
of Japan think of Florsheims?"
He stops the young writer
again when he reads, "the orange
metal Sears & Roebuck fireplace
..." "What is a Sears & Roebuck
fireplace?" he asks.
Dr. Lester Goren, professor of
English at the University of
Miami, who sits in on all the
classes, interjects, "Salinger uses
brand names often."
"Then Salinger's making a
mistake, says Singer. "Homer
and Dante used no trade names."
He grins: "Of course, there
weren't any in their time."
ASKED BY DR. Goren about
his own references to particinar
places and streets in Poland,
Singer responds, "I deal with a
country, a way of life which has
disappeared. It's kind of a
monument. But trade names are
not enduring names."
In awarding the 74-year-old
Singer the Nobel Prize for
Literature, the Swedish Academy
of Letters said the Polish-born

writing is good, especially in the
descriptions of nature but there is
no story, no revelation of
the students' opinions, too, since,
"your opinions are as good as
mine, maybe better since you are
Americans. Today's was an
American story."
Asked what he is learning from
these students, Singer's quick
response is "English."
Then he adds, "Every en-
counter with a human being is a
lesson in something."
The students note that he has
learned from them what a prom is
and about a rock star who died of
a drug overdose. "But that story
also included a waterbed, and I
didn't have to tell him what that
was," said Stephanie Packer. "I
guess he knew that."
SHE SAID Singer told them a
Miami newspaper reporter had
called him to see what he was
doing on Superbowl Sunday. "He
asked,'What's a Superbowl?' and
told them he was doing the same
thing he does every Sunday
his work."
Singer says that he's working
all the time, "which is what I
would have done, prize or no
prize. If all writers wrote for
prizes, we wouldn't have any
literature at all. All we would
have would be prizes."
Asked how the prize has af-
fected him. Singer said, "My

This, according to the writer,
"is at once a symbol of this

"Israel's Quest for Military Inde-
pendence," indicated that the
Arab states have a decided edge
over Israel in aircraft and tanks.
"The total Arab fighter and

totals more than 1,700 planes,"
the writer said.
"Several hundred more are on
order from the U.S., the Soviet
Union and Western Europe."
Egypt, with 500 combat aircraft
and Syria with 450 form the

Israel, by contrast, is thought

He referred to Brown's visits
to Saudi Arabia and Jordan to
seek support for the Camp David
negotiations. He observed that
the Camp David formulas "are a
very firm and well advised foun-
dation" for the peace process in
the Middle East.
THE WRITER said that
according to Israeli estimates,
the Arab confrontation states
have 34 divisions and 10.000
tanks compared to 27 divisions
and 7,000 tanks of the NATO
countries. Israel's figures were
not given.
The article stated that "Israel
and its Arab neighbors are in
their greatest arms race yet," but
"at the same time, Israeli leaders
are increasingly concerned over
the Soviet Union's growing
influence and presence in the
Horn of Africa and the Arabian
In Israel, in fact, there is a
growing feeling that the Arabs
are not the principal foe but
rather a pawn of the real enemy,
the Soviet Union."
THE WRITER reported that
Israeli "government leaders are

appointment at the delays and
reluctance that colored the

Zeldis' characterization in all

Because Someone Cared
Help for a 'Love Sick' Wife
A personal view from the
executive director of the
Jewish Family & Children's
I All case names mentioned in
these articles are fictitious; client
information at Jewish Family &
Children's Service is held in the.
strictest of confidence).
In a recent session with a
middle-aged housewife, who had
approached me with severe
complaints concerning her
husband's lack of affection, I was
reminded of the "love sick" wife
and the "cold sick" husband
syndrome detailed brilliantly
in a monograph by Peter Martin.
According to Martin, there are
four basic marital patterns; the
one mentioned being one of the
commonest. In this "love sick"
configuration, it is the wife who
approaches the counselor. As in
the case which I saw, the wife
was "no longer able to manage
the home, care for the children or
discharge her social obligations.
There was some depression,
though as it lifted during the
course of treatment, the wife
claimed that her sickness was due
entirely to the coldness and
cruelty of her husband."
There is usually a kernel of
truth as to these allegations. The
husbands, when approached for
purposes of involvement in the
marriage counseling are most
uncooperative. Generally
speaking, they are "intelligent,
educated men who hold positions
of responsibility." They generally
are emotionally reserved and
stable. They generally range in
their attitude toward the need for
marriage counseling from
adamant refusals for such service
to the middle ground of being
eager to do anything to alleviate
the disturbed marital relation-
ship to the other extreme of
beginning to doubt their own
senses and thinking that perhaps
their wives were right about the
problems being entirely the fault
of the husband.
husbands are difficult to reach
since they are "well defended" in
their "Tightness;" after all. they
are the breadwinners. However,
insofar as being able to share and
nurture the spouse in a marital

Robert Strauss, the
Resident's special trade rep-
entative, telephoned the
Washington Post to quote the
esident as saying that the Billy
comments were objec-
Itionable "and foreign to every -
I thing about the way we live our
lives." Strauss, a former National
I Democratic Party chairman, is
aware of the political difficulties
President Carter faces as a result
of Billy Carter's remarks and his
associations with an official
Libyan delegation on tour in
America, although Libya has
been harboring terrorists.
Despite such statements from
the White House, disappoint-
ment is expressed in some
quarters that the President had
not directly repudiated Billy
Carter's remarks and condemned
them in more forthright terms.
IT IS known that the Presi-
dent's special assistant, Edward
Sanders, has been seeking a stern
statement of repudiation for
some weeks, but there is
hesitancy within the admin-
istration because of the delicacy
of circumstances going into the
President's private life and
family relationships.
"Nobody wants the President
to disown his own brother,"
another observer noted. "What is
desirable is a clear repudiation of
the contents of Billy's remarks.
In dealing with stereotypes, a
more forthright statement is
essential to make it clear in the
sharpest terms that such remarks
are un-American and despicable.
"Otherwise, some will think it
is proper to do business with j
Libyans even if they shelter
killers and justify support for
Arabs because they are
numerically larger than Jews.
IT ALSO leads some people to
think that if Gen. Brown (the late
Gen. George Brown) could say
Israel is a burden and Bert Lance
(the President's former budget
director) can say things about
Jews, then why can't I? If that
happens, then anti-Semitism can
suddenly become a fashion. Wel-
coming the President's assertions
as relayed by Strauss, a Jewish
organization official noted that
the Strauss statement is "a lot
closer to what the President
should be saying than he has said
so far."
That official, while regretting
that it took "so much time to say
it," welcomed the statement.
Orientals WantFalasha Influx
1 Continued from Page 4-A
prohibit intermarriage with
IT IS moot here to debate whe-
ther, over the years since state-
hood, the Ashkenazic bureau-
cratic force in Israel has remained
indifferent to the Sephardim
because it was to their political
advantage to do so, excusing
their indifference with explana-
tions of Oriental "backward-
ness;" or whether the Sephardim
have deliberately fostered the
schism to avoid "racial" conta-
mination, while at the same time
groaning under the burdern of
the price they pay for their self-
imposed separatism.
But one thing is sure: the price
socio-economically for the Se-
phardim has been a disaster. For
example, the average income ot
an Ashkenazic Jew is twice'that
of his Sephardic counterpart.
In Israel's high schools, the
proportion between Ashkenazim
and Sephardim is 3-to-l in favor
of the Ashkenazim. There are five
times as many Ashkenazim as
there are Sephardim in the.
country'8 universities.
The percentage of Sephartim
in the political and economic i.ti
of the country is only 4 percent at
the same time that their number
in the general population has
risen to a whopping 55 percent.
ARE THESE statistics based
on the "uneducability" of
Sephardim as officials claim? Or
is this prima facie evidence of a
bureaucracy that is "derelict in
their duties" and "racially
prejudiced" toward the
Sephardim charges Prof.
Lenhoff makes against the
bureaucracy in his championing
of mass Falasha influx?
Whatever the answer, there
can be no doubt that it is the
Sephardim who, more than
anyone else in Israel, suffer poor
housing, ghettoization and labor
Is there any wonder, then, tha*
it is they, more than the
I Ashkenazim, who are pressuring
for an official acceptance of the
I THEY SEE in the Falashas
kindred victims and potential
newcomers to the Jewish Oriental
(and Jewish African) phalanx

For a final look on what that
may mean to Israel in a suddenly-
revolutionized Middle East and
Southeast Asia, next time. ..
Protest Religious Women's Exemption
Dina Gilad, a woman reservist who was impri-
soned for 24 hours for refusing to report for
military service because of a new law that
automatically exempts religious women, said she
believes she has made her point. This, she said, is
that non-religious women are discriminated
against by being required to serve while women
who claim to be religious do not. She was released
after she agreed to report for induction Feb. 18.
While she was in prison, other women reser-
vists and their supporters demonstrated outside
the Defense Ministry. One woman said she would
follow Ms. Gilad "s example and refuse to serve.
"It is inconceivable that because some girls are
exempted from service we have to carry the
burden," she said.
The initial plan advanced by President Carter's
Commission on the Holocaust to mark the week
of Apr. 22 to 29 as "Days of Remembrance" for
victims of Nazism was decried by Agudath Israel
of America for "failing to give the surviving
generation a proper format for commemorating
those that perished in the destruction."
The week's activities are scheduled to open
with ceremonies at Temple Emanuel in New York
and to close in the National Cathedral of the
Episcopal Church in Washington. The Orthodox
Jewish organization charged that the program
appears designed to reflect the "ecumenical as-
pirations of some of the commission's par-
ticipants rather than to authentically project the
theme of Remembrance."
The showing on French television of the
American NBC-TV series Holocaust seems to
have paradoxically caused a spate of anti-Semitic
incidents. In Nancy, a Jewish family complained
to the police that their neighbors' children are
persecuting and taunting their own children aged
12 and 14 "and using the exact terms used by the
Nazis" in the television film.
In another French city, Bezons, anti-Semitic
leaflets were distributed. Some mysteriously
reached the City Hall itself. The leaflets stated
that "the Nazi occupation has been followed by a
Jewish one" and calls on readers to "get rid of the
Jews who have taken over France like you got rid
of theNazis."
A new and revolutionary method of separating
isotopes, which could have far-reaching im-
' plications in the process of atomic energy
production and a great many other fields, has
been developed by Tel Aviv University scientists
Prof. Uzi Even and Mr. Aviv Amirav.
The new method of separating isotopes is based
on an entirely different and simpler principle.
While the present system of isotope separation is
based on weight differences between isotopes,
which are only slight, the new method is based on
magnetic differences, which are greater. The
isotopes in the form of cold gas are forced through
a nozzle into a vacuum and then passed through
magnetic fields, where they are separated.
Sen. Daniel P. Moynihan (D., N.Y.) warned
this week that Israel's "special relationship" with
the United States "is increasingly without in-
fluence." "The current disintegration in the Near
East will be used as an argument for further
separation of American and Israeli interests, not
as an argument for their strengthening and
augmentation," he added.
Moynihan's warning was contained in a speech
to the concluding session of the Labor Zionist
Alliance convention at the New York Sheraton
Moynihan charged that "there are already
ample indications that the American government
regards the workings of the Israeli polity with
increasing distress."
The Jackson-Vanik Amendment is "the only
legislative enactment which, to some extent at
least, acts as an obstacle to the unbridled tyranny
of the Soviet authorities in their emigration
policies," according to 68 Soviet Jewish
In a statement received by the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry and Union of Councils
for Soviet Jews, the refuseniks, who are from nine
Soviet cities, urged Congress to continue sup-
porting the Amendment and not approve a bill
I proposed by Sen. Adlai Stevenson III (D., 111.)
The Stevenson bill would reduce the
requirement for an "assurance" by the country
involved that emigration restrictions have been
decreased to a "determination" by the President.
Instead of a yearly review by Congress, there
would be one every five years.
Dulzin Predicts 35,000 Soviet Immigrants
NEW YORK Based on the
record-high levels of Soviet
Jewish immigration at the end of
1978, Leon Dulzin, chairman of
the Jewish Agency Executive,
predicts a minimum of 35,000 im-
migrants to Israel in 1979, in-
cluding a large number of Jews
from Iran.
f There is great uncertainty
regarding Iranian Jewry," Dulzin
said. "The people might face
danger. It is difficult to foresee
the future, but Israel is ready to
absorb them.
Jews have already left Iran for
Israel, entering as temporary
residents; another 4,090 are
believed to be temporarily living
in other countries. That leaves
an estimated 66,000 people in
the Iranian Jewish community,"
said Dulzin.
"Regarding Jews in the Soviet
Union," Dulzin added, "4,200

and the trend continued into
January. The real basis of our
optimism, however, is the record

The 'Kedushah' of Hebrew in Jewish Education

Director of the JCDS
There is a major discussion
going on at various levels of the
Jewish community regarding the
appropriate context of Jewish
What should we teach in order
to insure Jewish continuity and
Jewish identity? What should the
emphasis be in order to stem the
tide of assimilation, inter-
marriage and disinterest.
The first victim of this cur-
riculum examination has
frequently been Hebrew
language. Erroneously, I believe,
many have concluded that if we
spend less time on Hebrew, we
will have more time for the
"important subjects:" Bible,
Prayers, Jewish thought, etc.
IT HAS been my experience
that Hebrew language, ef-
fectively taught, (and this can be
done best in a Day School
which provides adequate time for
Judaic studies) is the most ef-
fective, affective subject. It is not
only a language; it is also a
vehicle for all of our Jewish
identity and concerns.
I should like to share with you
the best rationale for the cen-
trality of Hebrew that I have ever
seen. It is by Rebecca Mosenkis,
who was in our community
recently for a seminar with our
Hebrew teachers. Here are her
observations, as quoted from the
United Synagogue Curriculum
for the Afternoon School
"For the Jewish child, the very
process of learning Hebrew is a
Jewish experience linked to
Kedushah (holiness). Hebrew is
Lashon Hakodesh and the
element of Kedushah is an in-
Mexico's Portillo
Shows Positive
Israel Attitude
Dulzin, chairman of the World
Zionist Organization and Jewish
Agency Executives, declared on
his arrival here from a four-day
visit to Mexico that the attitude
toward Israel and Zionism in that
country is positive.
He based his assessment on an
hour-long meeting he had with
Mexico's President Jose Lopez
terview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, Dulzin
described his audience with
Lopez Portillo as "very cordial
and warm." He said he raised the
question of Mexico's vote in the
United Nations General
Assembly two years ago in favor
of the Arab-inspired resolution
equating Zionism with racism.
The president responded,
"Whatever was in the past is
forgotten, and we have opened a
new leaf," Dulzin told the JTA.
He said he and the Mexican
leader also discussed Mexico's
vast oil reserves which, according
to Lopez Portillo, are equal to
those of Saudi Arabia. But the
President emphasized that if
some think Mexican oil will be a
substitute for Iranian oil they are
mistaken, Dulzni reported.
HE SAID he got the im-
pression that Mexico intends to
develop its oil reserves gradually.
He said he did not discuss the
issue of Mexican oil for Israel but
added, "I can only say there is
hope that Mexico will consider
positively Israel's requests for

tegral part of the language. Just
as the aspect of Kedushah cannot
be removed from Jerusalem, Ir
Hakodesh, and deposited in Tel
Aviv or any other city, so the
element of Kedushah in Hebrew
cannot be transferred to another
"To understand the relation-
ship fully, it must be understood
that language is not merely a
vehicle of communication.
Thought and language are
mutually depe' dent. Without
language there is little or no
abstract thinking and the
thoughts expressed in language
are determined to a great extent
by the language. When a par-
ticular language is used,
associations inherent in the
history and development of the
Mordecai Levow
people speaking that language
shape the thought. Judaism in
English cannot help but reflect
elements of English tradition

including historic and religious
undertones. For this reason basic
Jewish concepts are referred to in
Hebrew in all curricular lines.
The child with minimal Hebrew
understanding must, however,
depend on the English tran-
slation. His concept of tzedakah,
for example, will more closely
resemble charity than the con-
cept of the child who knows
Hebrew and is familiar with the
root tzedek.
Rather than throwing Hebrew
out of the curriculum, would it
not be more productive to
concentrate on improving our

Library Exhibits KKK Collection
The Anti- Defamation League of

for a Ku Klux Klan exhibition in
Winston-Salem's main library. A
Klan flag, Confederate uniforms,
Klan literature, hoods, robes and
pictures of Robert E. Lee were
scheduled for display beginning
Feb. 26.

North-Carolina-Virginia regional
director, charged Forsyth County
Library Director William A.

white domination, anti-Semitism
and which has a long history of
THE LIBRARY official claims
the Klan exhibit is in response to
"Black History Month now
being nationally observed.
Olshansky dismisses the ex-
planation as a "specious and
flimsy canard."
"Actually," Olshansky said,
"allowing the Klan to display all
its paraphernalia its hoods,
robes and such anti-Semitic and
racist publications as The
Crusader is tantamount to
promoting and supporting the
KKK's philosophy."
Olshansky said the the library
display "is but the latest
manifestation of an increase in
Klan activity since David Duke,
head of the Knights of the Ku
Klux Klan, visited Winston-
Salem in the fall"
IN ADDITION to the library
exhibit, the Klan also obtained a
permit to hold a promotional
rally in a public school, as well as
permission to use the library
during regular hours to exhibit
and promote its racist organiza-
tion. The only official rejection to
KKK requests occurred when

to what?
They escape from areas of crisis. Jewish
families from all over, in all sizes some edu-
cated, some with skills, some not so lucky. AH
with human needs, great or small: real needs.
Some go to the U.S. or other free lands. Most
of them go to Israel. This is not 1940. and Jews
who flee from oppression do have somewhere to
go. The question is: will they find the kind of re-
newed life they need and deserve?
The people of Israel open their hearts to their
brothers and sisters. In 1979, they will receive at
least 35.000 new immigrants. More than half will
arrive from areas of crisis or Jewish distress.
The Jewish Agency, the JDC and all the
other elements of our worldwide lifeline are in Is-
rael and elsewhere to help them renew their lives
freedom. Housing.. .vocational retrain-
ing... language education... child care... medical
care whatever the need, wherever it's needed,
there's a means and a program for meeting it.
It costs money to reach out and help more
and more each year. But the cost is insignificant
compared with the value of renewed life. And our
reaching out begins with your campaign pledge.
Pledge today to the 1979 campaign. Renew
yourself as you renew Jewish life everywhere.
