munity Day School facility
came one step closer to be-
| coming a reality as over 200
people participated in a
land dedication ceremony
on the newly acquired Fed-
eration property on Haver-
hill Road. The school, just
six years young, has grown
irom a student body of 23
to a present enrollment of

to double in the next few

Shulman, president of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County, and keynote speaker for
the event. "It marks a commit-
ment by our community to enrich
and enable a quality of life that
wlU insure a Jewish lifeline."
This feeling of commitment
was evident throughout the
entire program. Commitment on
the part of the Jewish Cemetery

a Certificate of Appreciation for
its generous contribution of

'TodayMarks a Commitment
To Insure a Jewish Lifeline'
BOTH OF these Babylonian Continued on Page 13
(The following is the text of the speech
delivered by Alan L. Shulman, president of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County, at'
a recent land dedication ceremony for the Jewish
Community Day School)
I am extremely pleased to be here on this very
special occasion and to have been honored by
being asked to say a few words to commemorate
what is being born this day.
Today, my friends, is a solemn day in the
history of the Jewish community of Palm Beach
County. It marks a commitment by our com-
munity to enrich and ennoble a quality of life that
will insure a Jewish lifeline. It represents the
acceptance of an obligation to keep that lifeline
intact, strong and alive.
Yesterday we celebrated the Festival of
Shavuoth, and were reminded by our rabbis that
as God gave our people the commandments at
Mount Sinai, he asked what guarantees our
people were prepared to give to assure that we
would uphold his laws, and it was only when our
ancestors agreed to give our children as our
guarantee to' God, was he satisfied that the
teachings of this precious gift would be carried
from generation to generation.
WE AS JEWS have always had a deep respect
and an almost insatiable appetite for education.
We need only to look at the disproportionate
number of Nobel Prize winners throughout the
years who have come from Jewish stock. We need
only to look at the inordinate number of
professors in every field who dominate university
campuses. One need only to look at the number of
jews who excel in the fields of medicine, law,
engineering, science and the arts to understand
the uniqueness of the Jewish phenomenon which
is passionately devoted to learning.
It starts, my friends, with our children, our
little Yladim and Yladot We expect our children
to study diligently, to understand the greatness
of this country we live in, to absorb the
curriculum of secular studies, and in addition we
are charging our children with the awesome
responsibility to carry on a 5,000-year-old
tradition in order to meet our commitment of
guarantee. What a task my friends, and yet what
are our children asking of us. A school, teachers,
classrooms, books, a library, an auditorium,
science rooms, art rooms, a playground. Such a
small price for a Jewish community to pay for the
goals and for the dividends we are seeking.
History recalls schools within the walls of the
Warsaw Ghetto where a desperate, doomed
people were so ingrained and so imbued with a
sense of obligation to the education of their
children, that to the bitter end, Yeshivot func-
tioned and Torah was taught.
The scales are not in balance, and it is in-
cumbent on this Jewish community if it is sen-
sitive to what its responsibilities are to be aware
that we lost two million children in the fires of the
Holocaust, who never had the chance to fulfill
their Jewish destiny.
I trust my friends, all of us will recognize the
solemnity of this day and join together to justify
the ethics of Sinai.
Thank you.

UJA Young Leadership Takes
'Holocaust to Rebirth' Trip
NEW YOR'k The recently
completed "Holocaust to Re-
birth" Mission, sponsored by the
Young Leadership Cabinet of the
United Jewish Appeal, provided
participants with two unique
experiences. They saw one of
their number become a Bar
Mitzvah in the first such
ceremony conducted in an
historic Polish synagogue in a
quarter of a century and they
acquired a "mother."
On April 25 in the Remo
Synagogue in Cracow, the Bar
Mitzvah 35-year-old Dennis
Rose of Los Angeles was wel-
comed into the "Jewish chain of
life" by the mission leader, Larry
.Tackier of Detroit, chairman-
designate of the Young Leader-
ship Cabinet. Mission members
assembling for the ceremony rep-
resented the first young, viable
Jewish K'hila to gather at the
Remo Synagogue since the Nazi
Rose concluded his Bar
Mitzvah speech by saying: "We
must renew ourselves through
our values and our heritage. Our
legacy to our children is our
renewal of life." The Rose Bar
Mitzvah was one of the rare
bright moments in the youthful
group's stay in Warsaw and
"KADDISH. For us, that's the
only way to describe Poland."
one participant said as the group
went from cemetery to museum,
from deserted synagogue to
deserted ghetto streets, from
Auschwitz to Birkenau through
an almost constant veil of rain
and dark clouds.
Before leaving Poland, the
group said Kaddish for the last
time at a Warsaw monument to
Mordechai Anielewicz. leader of
the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
They were joined by someone
who had become very special to
them, someone who provided a
living link between life in Poland
before and during the Holocaust
and life renewed in Israel:
Miriam Novitch, a survivor of the
Warsaw Ghetto and of Ausch-
witz who is. today, the curator of
Kibbutz Lohamei HaGhettaot
(The Ghetto Fighters) Museum
near Akko in Israel. Mrs.
Novitch was many things for" the
Mission participants: a
demanding teacher, a- living
witness to the nightmare, a com-
forting mother to "my children."
She told the young Americans
over and again, "I am the Jewish
people (Am Yisrael) You are
the Jewish people. Learn who you
are. Remember. Live."
If Poland was Kaddish, the
entire visit to Israel was an un-
ending song to life. The group
met with Miriam Novitch again,
this time "at home," and after
they had spent a weekend in
Tivon. a suburb of Haifa, as
weekend guests of families living
there. Later, after climbing Mas-
sada, visiting new settlements in
the north and throughout Israel,
celebrating Yom Haatzmaut with
the people of Israel, going on a
rugged and difficult overnight
trip to Sinai and finally climbing
Sinai, the mission ended in
Jerusalem with a festive reunion
with all of the Tivon host families
and with Miriam Novitch.

Before returning to her Kib-

The Federal Republic of
Germany presented a

the construction of a
"Garden of Remembrance"
for Jews murdered in Nazi
concentration camps at the
brotherhood synagogue in
West German Ambassador to
the United States Beradt von
Staden, in presenting the check
to members of the synagogue,
spoke about the excellent
relations between the Bonn
government and Israel and noted
that a government-sponsored
Jewish Theological Seminary will
open in Heidelberg at the end of
this year.
COMMENTING on the sig-
nificance of the German gift to
the synagogue, the ambassador
said, "We are every bit aa in-
debted to the Jews aa to all our
intellectual forefathers.
"We ought to be aware of the
expulsion of the Jews and that
the murder of innumerable
Jewish citizens robbed our nation
of creative minds who to this day
have not been replaced and who
remain irreplaceable."
Von Staden also paid tribute to
the late Roy Blumenthal, the
brother of a synagogue member,
and longtime public relations
consultant to West Germany.
BLUMENTHAL was instru-
mental in arranging the historic
meeting between Chancellor
Konrad Adenauer and Prime
Minister David Ben Gurion
which decided the question of
German reparations to Israel
after World War II.
The garden, to be located at
the synagogue, will have two
parts. Inscribed on a marble wall
in a garden behind the synagogue
will be the names of the deceased
members of the synagogue com-
munity. In a corner of the garden
a memorial to the Holocaust
victims will be constructed.

More Than Rhetoric
We would like to believe that it was more than
political rhetoric when Prime Minister Menachem
Begin told a Herut convention Sunday night that
Jerusalem is indivisible. This was a solid warning to
President Sadat, who has increasingly begun to test
the waters of dissent involving Arab claims on Old
We would also like to believe that nothing will
shake his confidence in the principle he espouses
that, cooperation or no cooperation between Israel
and Egypt, no one and that means both the Carter
administration and President Sadat can force
Israel to continue on the merry-go-round of making
Cooperation, yes; suicide, no. This was the gist
of his message, and in the heat of enthusiasm over
the new peace agreement, it is well that he has finally
spoken up out loud.
'Normalization' and Radar
This is a central issue for two reasons best
illustrated by two separate incidents earlier in the
week. One was the statement made by Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan prior to his departure for
talks in Cairo.
Addressing himself to the one-sided Egyptian
attitude toward "normalization" of relations and
Egypt's apparent reticence to open up the borders
between the two countries, Dayan said that
President Sadat can't have it both ways. By this, he
meant that El Arish residents are permitted as a
matter of course across the new border into Israel;
but Israelis are not permitted into El Arish or any
place else in Egypt, as a similar matter of course.
The second illustration is the sudden erection of
gigantic radar facilities by Egyptian authorities in El
Arish. What are they monitoring?
Thatcher Rumored Uninformed
On Affairs in Middle East
Eric Moonman, a former
Labor member of Parlia-
ment and president of the
British Zionist Federation,
said here that Britain's new
Conservative Prime Minis-
ter Margaret Thatcher was
relatively inexperienced in
foreign affairs, especially
the Middle East.
He said the main concern
of British Jewry was with
Mrs. Thatcher's principal
spokesman on foreign
affairs in the House of
Commons, Sir Ian
MOONMAN, who was
defeated for reelection in the May
3 elections, noted that Sir Ian,
the Lord Privy Seal, is very
active in the Arab lobby in Eng-
land and has openly advocated a
Palestinian state on the West
British friendship movement, a
"foolish and thoughtless move."
Asked during an interview
with the JTA about the effects of
the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty
on fund-raising activities in
Britain, he admitted that
Zionism is easier to promote
"during a hot war and crisis."
However, he called peace a
"challenge" and said the Jewish
community must come to terms
with the situation and respond
with more creative techniques in
fund-raising to keep up the
momentum. In that connection,
he observed that while American
Jewish organizations had more
professionals than their counter-
parts in Britain, the relations be-
tween the lay and political
leadership was not always well
HE SAID he felt there was far
too much duplication of activities
among various Jewish organiza-
tions' in the U.S. Moonman said
there was a problem in Britain
today of maintaining Jewish
THE FLAP over the func-
tional literacy test in the State of
Florida is understandable, but
opponents of the test are wrong
to contest it.
At issue is the testing of
would-be high school graduates
to determine if they can read,
write and perform basic arith-
metic computation.
To begin with, we (and they)
ought to feel a profound sense of
embarrassment that young,
people are permitted to advance
so far along in the public school
system and still be woefully
deficient in the intricacies of what
were once called the "3 R's" when
we call upon them at their
eleventh-hour to prove their skills
in them.
BUT THAT is the nature of
our educational dilemma today.
They are not only deficient; they
are hostile at being called to
account, and they and their civil
libertarian representatives go to
court as the injured parties as
if it were not their fault. This
exists not only in Florida but
throughout the nation, although
Floridians must finally face up to
the fact that their public school
system is among the worst in the
The functional literacy test is
designed to force the high school
graduate, prior to getting a
diploma, to demonstrate that he
is on a level of academic achieve-
ment commensurate with what
the diploma presumably
It is designed to put the brakes
on a democratically-inspired
egalitarian educational process
that has for decades sanctioned
automatic promotion from one
grade to. the next on the basis
that not to do so is to dis-
criminate against certain in-
dividuals, ethnic groups, and / or
philosophy of education, which
took insidious root after World
War II and its baby boom after-
math, is a sad chronicle of the
decline in quality education.
The fact is that academic
standards can not, or at least
should not, be modified to adapt
to the cultural norm. If the object
of education is to elevate people
from where they are to some
hypothetical level of achievement
representing where they ought to
be, then just the opposite is true:
people (the cultural norm) must
be modified (elevated) to adapt to
established academic standards.
This is an elitist position, some
will say, but there can be nothing
democratic or egalitarian about
the education process. Since
World War II, democratic and
egalitarian principles have eroded
that process until we now
graduate substandard high
school students as a matter of
It is for this reason that the
functional literacy test has been

Attack on Newsmen Insidious
Not long after Pope John Paul
II let it be known that he was
going this Spring to visit Poland,
land of his birth, that nation's
politburo decreed that all
newsgatherers from non-Polish
lands coming to cover the
Pontiffs homecoming would
have to pay a tax of $350.
Thus the totalitarian mind at
About the same time, in one of
the few surviving democracies, a
Massachusetts state senator
proposed a law requiring those he
branded "investigative repor-
ters" to post a $5,000 bond and
pay an initial fee of $760 phis
annual tax of $400 to continue as
part of the newspaper profession.
nalists, he declared, amount to
private detectives and had to be
licensed. News spies packed too
much power and were too devilish
to continue to enjoy freedom of
the press.
Now the highest court in the
United States has held that a
plaintiff in a libel suit has a right
to ascertain the state of mind of
the newsgatherer preparing his
articles and of his associates
joining in that enterprise. The
case in point was that of Lt. Col.
Anthony B. Herbert, oft-
decorated Vietnam War veteran,
vs. Barry Lando, a producer of
CBS's explosive 60 Minutes
j.* --.. For 8ix years, this fascinating
through the courts. At peak level,
the jurists did not limit pre-trial
questioning. Consequently,
loaded down with documents,
young Lando had gone through
26 days of questioning.
BUT THAT was not enough.
What were the inner tJMWSJet
processes of Lando and his CBS
comrades, the trial lawyers
demanded to know. Just how had
they gone about trying to pin the
military hero to the wall? Much
was riding on such questions. Lt.
Col. Herbert, a tenacious
defender of his good name, was
seeking $44.7 million in damages.
Perhaps prior to the era of
electronic journalism, abrim
with tape recorders, candid
cameras, and disconcerting
television lights, such litigation
would never have been dreamed
of. Anyone who has studied the
files of newspaper of a century
ago can not fail to have been
surprised at the vicious name-
calling of men prominent in
public life who, thus besmirched,
failed to collect a penny or even
went to the trouble of suing.
But this is a different day. And
with Chief Justice Warren
Burger at the helm, a jurist
whose mistrust of the media is
already legendary, it is a different
court. Six of the justices have
voted one more brake on the
enterprise of news gathering and
news production.
ONCE MORE, to his great
"it,Judge Potter Stewart has

cerned only what was published.
What was not published has
nothing to do with the case.
Liability binges in the end upon
the publisher's state of
knowledge of the falsity of what
he published and "not at all upon
his motivation in publishing it."
Dissenting Justice Thurgood
strove also to uphold the
foundations of traditional
American press freedom:
"Society's interest in K.twhig
the accuracy of coverage of public
events is ill-served by procedures
tending to muffle expression of
uncertainty. To preserve a
climate of free interchange
among journalists, the con-
fidentiality of their conversation
must be guaranteed."
Increasingly in these times,
shield laws protecting reporters'
assurance that confidences will
not have to be violated are being
bypassed by courts.
Increasingly, reporters are going
to jail for holding fast to their
files. In 1978, the Supreme Court
ruled, 6-to-3, that policemen
could rifle through newsrooms
pretty much at will. Little
wonder those who place great
value on the right to inquire, to
write to publish are ap-
"A free press is not a privilege
but an organic necessity in a
great society," Walter Lippman
reasoned. How great is the

Schimelman, executive director
of the Jewish Federation of Palm
Beach County, will represent the
Palm Beach County community
at the Council of Jewish
Federations' special General
Assembly, Thursday, June 14, in
Denver, convened to take action
on the three-year CJF Review
which charts the future of
Federations and CJF for the
On Friday, June 15, Council
and UJA will initiate the first
steps in a new planning process
to develop a comprehensive
blueprint for the 1980 community
Both these events will coincide
with the CJF Quarterly, which
will cover a broad gamut of
community responsibilities in
committees, forums and
workshops. There will be a forum
on "Middle East Issues
Following the Israel-Egypt Peace
Treaty" featuring as guest
speakers Yehuda Blum, Israel's
Ambassador to the United
Nations, and Theodore Mann,
president of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, on
Thursday evening.
The special General Assembly
will culminate a study launched
three years ago which examined
every major aspect of the
Council's philosophy, operation
and objectives and how it can
best serve the needs of its 190
member Federations.
"The Review was initiated to
ascertain the priority needs and
purposes of North American
Jewish Federations," stated CJF
President Morton L. Mandel of
Cleveland, "and to adapt CJF's
programs to serve those needs
with maximum effectiveness in
the coming decades."
"Council was created by the
Federations of North America,"
added Raymond Epstein of
Chicago, Chairman of the Review
Committee. "It is responsible to
them and its activities must be
responsive to their concerns. The
orientation of the Review is
towards the future to enable
CJF to build on its established
strengths and meet the
challenges and opportunities
Forty lay and professional
community leaders comprised the
ReviewCommittee. A CJF

sultant Staff Team was headed
by Henry L. Zucker, vice
president emeritus of the Jewish

throughout North America were
visited to solicit information for
the Review, and 1,500 Federation
officers, executive committee
members and staff professionals
contributed their views to the
According to Mandel, Review
Committee recommendations to
be considered by delegates to the
special assembly cover the
following areas: Strengthening
Communities and Federations;
UJA-CJF Relations; Priorities
and Planning; Governance of
CJF; Communications; Human
Resources and Staff Organiza-
tion; Budget. Also to be con-
sidered are recommendations
from a separate report on the
future staffing of Federations
and related CJF personnel
Assembly delegates will vote
on the Committee's suggestions
for changes in the CJF by-laws
required to activate the review
"These two final decades of the
Twentieth Century will be ex-
citing and demanding ones for
the Jewish people," Mandel said.
"Federations must be ready to
carry out many crucial
responsibilities, and Council
must assist Federations to the
utmost in this endeavor."
A NEW campaign planning
format will be introduced at the
CJF meetings in Denver, as the
leaders of North American

developments such as the
emigration of 50,000 or more
Soviet Jews per year; Israel's

plenary and extending into
caucuses of individual city
delegates and groups of cities
sharing common potentials and
The recommendations of this
top leadership cadre will be
brought before local Federations
for additional input through
community meetings held
between June and September.
"THIS NEW campaign
planning process represents
another milestone in the history
of the North American Jewish
community," said Mandel. "It is
an indication of both how far we
have come, and how far we still
can go. We are ready to move
forward in an unprecedented
effort of planning and co-
ordination. Now we must use this
process in a concerted effort to
mobilize the full resources of the
American and Canadian Jewry."
The CJF is the association of
more than 190 Federations,
Welfare Funds and Community
Councils which serve nearly 800
communities and embrace over
95 percent of the Jewish
population of the United States
and Canada.
Established in 1932, the
Council serves as a national
instrument to strengthen the
work and the impact of Jewish
Federations through leadership
in developing programs to meet
changing needs in the Jewish
community; through the ex-
change of successful experiences
to assure the most effective
community services; through
establishing guidelines for fund-
raising and operation, and
through joint national planning
and action on common purposes
dealing with local, regional,
national and international needs.

Are Confirmed
Department has confirmed that Soviet-made SAM
anti-aircraft missiles are in place in Lebanon near the

HE SAID "there is no indication they have been
moved southward (away from the Syrian border) or

Mayor Bfo Stranger to Tragedy
London Chronicle Syndicate
When Dianne Feinstein first
ran for political office in her
native San Francisco ten years
ago, she had two obvious lia-
bilities she was a woman and
she was a Jew in a "mas-
culine" city without a strong,
organized Jewish voting bloc.
Today, the elegant Mrs. Fein-
stein, 45, is still a woman and still
Jewish, but she is the Mayor of
San Francisco. The political
pundits are guessing if and when
she will run for the U.S. Senate or
the governorship of California.-
HER LIFE has not been
unmarked by personal tragedy,
and she reached her present office
through a civic tragedy the
assassination last November of
the then incumbent mayor,
George Mascone.
Mrs. Feinstein was then
serving as president of the city's
legislative body, the Board of
Supervisors, and automatically
succeeded to the mayoralty.
She will run for a four-year
term in her own right in next
November's elections, and is con-
sidered the favorite to beat her
most likely challenger. Super-

spoken Jewish politician.

and partly by choice. Her phy-
sician father, Dr. Leon Gold-
mann, was Jewish, but her
mother was a Roman Catholic-
Mrs. Feinstein received her
early education at the Convent of
the Sacred Heart in San Fran-
Encouraged by both her
parents to be a free thinker,
Dianne made up her mind at the
Mayor Feinstein
age of 20, after studying at both
the convent and a Jewish Sunday
"I CHOSE Judaism, because I
liked the simplicity of the
religion, the directness," she
recalls. "I was also aware of the
prejudice that exists and of our
distinct heritage, and I felt a need
to go in that direction."
After graduating from Stan-
ford University with a degree in
history and political science, she
worked as a government intern
and married Jack Berman, a
lawyer. The couple had one
daughter, Katherine Anne, now
21, and a political science student
at the University of California.
The marriage was sub-
sequently dissolved. In 1962, the
future mayor married Dr. Ber-
tram Feinstein, a leading brain
surgeon, who died of cancer a
little over a year ago.
RECENTLY, Mrs. Feinstein
has been sporting a ruby and
diamond engagement ring and
has announced that she plans to
marry Richard Blum, an invest-
ment banker, later this year.
Among San Francisco's 35,000
Jews, about five percent of the
population, Mrs. Feinstein is not
considered particularly involved
in Jewish affairs, although she
maintains a nominal membership
in Congregation Sherith Israel, a
Reform congregation, and the
B'nai B'rith Woman.
However, her political future
will depend less on her Jewish-
ness than on her handling of the
affairs of volatile San Francisco,

She Can Use a Gun
ALTHOUGH the city is pre-
dominantly Catholic, with a
strong Italian influence, it has a
large Chinese and growing Black
population, and 15 percent of the
residents form a politically
potent homosexual voting bloc.
So far, Mrs. Feinstein has
received high marks for coolness
and competence in two critical
situations: first, the assas-
sination of her predecessor; and
then the mass suicide in Guyana
of cult members belonging to the
People's Temple, whose home
base is in San Francisco.
Mrs. Feinstein herself is no
stranger to violence. In 1976, her
city home was fire-bombed, and
the windows of her beach house
were shot out. She knows how to
use firearms, but does not carry a

She came to Israel twenty years ago from Poland
with her husband and three fine sons. Illness took her
husband from her. Wars took her sons. Now she lives
alone with her memories. The world is hardly aware
that she is in it.
There are many Rebas. In Israel. Here. The world

But to forget Reba, you must forget who you are.
You must ignore a heritage of nearly six thousand years

100th Anniversary Year
^Jewish World Took ORT to Its Heart
National Vice President
American ORT Federation
On April 10, 1880, five eminent
Jews in what was then the capital
of the empire of Czars, St.
Petersburg, dispatched a
message to the Jewish com-
munities throughout the Pale.
With this act.they launched ORT.
The founders had direct ob-
jectives. They called for the
creation of a Jewish fund, given
by Jews to deal with the basic
problems of hunger, work and
livelihood that were the daily
existence for the great mass of
the people restricted to the Pale.
The signers to that letter were
astonished at the spontaneity of
the response, how so many
spread across the towns and
shtetlich of Poland, Russia,
Lithuania found the voice of
response, how broad was that
response, and how welcome it
was. If the letter was the act that
founded the ORT, the joy with
which it was (rreeted made ORT
from that day to this that em-
bodiment of constructive hope it
has been right along.
THE FOUNDERS' aims were
modest and immediate, a
plan for that time in that place. It
was bold because it struck at a
basic need and was in fact the
very first national organization
brandishing a blow for Jewish
rights. But the founders were
practical men, offering a practical
proposal for what was then a
crying need.
They could not have conceived
in their wildest dreams that their
deed of April 10, 1880, would
become a great constructive force
for a century thereafter. But
neither could they have forecast
the wars, revolutions, the
Holocaust, massive migrations
and the creation of Israel. Still, it
was precisely by being part of all
these events that shaped modern
Jewish life that ORT did not
merely survive a miracle in itself,
with a few if any parallels, but
that it would come to occupy the
place that is now universally
Rabbinical Assembly Plans Two Day Kalian
On Tuesday and Wednesday,
June 19 and 20, the Rabbinical
Assembly Southeast Region,
which runs from the tip of Florida
all the way west to New Orleans
and north to Tennessee and the
Carolinas, will hold a Kallah on
Singer Island.
Rabbis from Conservative con-
gregations throughout the south-
east will gather for two days of
study and inspiration, as well as
meetings, dealing with the
practical problems of rabbinic
life. The scholar-in-residence at
this Kallah will be Rabbi
Seymour Siegal, the chairman of
the Committee on Law and
Standards of the Rabbinical
Assembly and a national figure in
the realm of the applications of
Jewish law to modern life.
Rabbi Asher Bar-Zev of
Temple Beth El will participate
in the Kallah and in the dis-
cussions. Rabbi Bar-Zev said, "It
is absolutely vital for a rabbi to
have the opportunity to meet
with his colleagues from time to
time in order to recharge his bat-
teries, to receive new insights
into the latest thinking in Jewish
law, and to enjoy the fellowship
of his colleagues. I look forward
to bringing back to the con-
gregation a report on the ac-

Ethiopian Jews Urge U.S.\To Take Up Cause of Falashas
An Ethiopian Jew, now a
citizen of Israel, urged Jews
in the United States and
Canada to take up the
cause of his fellow Falashas
in Ethiopia who he said are
facing extinction. Zecharias
Yona, secretary general of
the Association of Ethio-
pian Jews in Israel, charged
that the problem of the
Falashas has been ignored
by the Israeli government
and Jewish organizations.
Yona, a reserve sergeant in the
Israeli Army, and Simcha Jaco-
bovici, chairman of the North
American Jewish Students Net-
work, spoke to Jewish media at a
press conference which concluded
Yona's speaking tour of the U.S.
and Canada under NAJSN's
massive letter writing campaign
to President Carter and to Zionist
and Jewish organizations urging
them to devise a "creative ap-
proach" to the problem of the
Yona, noting the efforts to
rouse world opinion over the
arrest of Jewish activist Anatoly
Sharansky in the Soviet Union.
asked whether the slaughter of
thousands of Ethiopian Jews
in the last few years could not
also be made into an inter-
national cause.
The Falashas, who numbered
250,000 in the 19th Century and
28,000 in 1976, are believed now
to number only 20,000. They live
in northwest Ethiopia which has
been the center of a civil war
since the overthrow of Emperor
Haile Selassie in 1972.
THOUSANDS have been
killed, many sold into slavery and
an estimated 7,000 are refugees,
according to reports.
Prior to 1972, when Yona
immigrated to Israel, the aliya of
Falashas was hindered by doubts
over their Jewishness. In 1972,
Israel's two Chief Rabbis
recognized Falashas as Jews.
Yona said that some 300
Falashas now in Israel are fully
accepted and integrated into
Israel life.
But Yona said that although
124 Falashas made aliya in 1977,
the situation in Ethiopia is
I desperate and nothing is being
[done to get the Falashas out of
Ethiopia. He took pains to stress
that he was not blaming the
Ethiopian government for the
plight of the Falashas.
YONA WAS among a group of
Falasha immigrants who staged

Report of Israeli Operation
TEL AVIV (JTA) A military spokesman
branded as totally false a report from Beirut Wednesday
night that Israeli naval units aided by helicopters at-
tacked Tyre and the nearby Rashidiyeh refugee camp,
killing 15 people. The spokesman said no naval or air units
were in action against targets in Lebanon.
Israeli artillery fired on terrorist positions in south
Lebanon after several Katyusha rockets were fired at
settlements in Upper Galilee. It was reported that on
Israeli army patrol discovered a large terrorist arms cache
on the western slopes of Mt. Hemon. It contained Karl
Gustaff submachineguns, hand grenades, explosive
charges, axes, ropes and other equipment.
Belts filled with explosives were found, believed
intended for use as "suicide jackets" indicating that the
users would blow themselves up rather than be captured.

Who cares
about Nissim?
He's a number on a waiting list in Israel. Waiting for a place in a
special tutoring program, hoping to escape the cycle of
undereducation and underemployment that trapped his father. The
list is long... and moves slowly, for lack of funds. Nissim isn't sure
there's anything to wait for any more.
There are thousands of Nissims. Numbers on waiting lists for youth
care programs. Lists that grow longer as funds, battered by
inflation, grow shorter. In Israel. In Asia and North Africa. Even here.
It's possible to forget all about them.
But to forget Nissim you must forget who you are. You must ignore a
heritage of thousands of years of shared joy and sufferingthe
oneness of all Jews everywhere. Nissim is youand his needs are
your needs, with a different emphasis.
Renew yourself as you renew his lifeand Jewish life everywhere.
Make your pledge today to the 1979 campaign.

and a member of the New

Reelected were Herb Gray, a
former minister and the first Jew

Toronto Riding of York Center.
Elected for the first time were
David Berger, a Liberal, in
Montreal, and the NDP's David

Federations Help Flood Victims
The assessment of flood
damages sustained by the Jewish
community of Jackson, Miss.,
and the assistance required has
been made by the Council of
Jewish Federations through on-
site inspection by its staff and by
leaders and staff of the Memphis
Jewish Federation.
Twenty-two Jewish families
suffered major damage to their
homes, and four offices of Jewish
professionals and two business
sites were devastated, it was
Drawing on experience gained
assisting the Jewish communities
of Wilkes-Barre and Johnstown,
Pa., during severe flooding, the
Council of Jewish Federations
arranged meetings between
Jackson's Jewish leadership and
the Coordinator of Disaster Relief
of the Federal Disaster Adminis-
tration Agency. At those
sessions the community was
apprised of the full range of
federal assistance available to
them, and the procedures for
obtaining it.
Federal disaster relief loans,
administered through the Small
Business Administration, are
available to individuals, busi-
nesses and organizations whose
homes, offices and other sites
were damaged by flooding.
Funds are also available for up to
one year to pay rent on apart-
ments for families whose homes
are being repaired. Many Jewish
families were initially sheltered
by friends whose homes lay
beyond the flood line; now most
are being relocated in apart-
The CJF Washington Action
Office is advising the community
on expediting the process of
government assistance.
A family service caseworker
from the Memphis Jewish
Federation who worked with the
Jackson community directly
following the flood has been
requested by Council to return
ana provide further counseling.
CJF President Morton L.
Mandel of Cleveland stated he
was "deeply grateful to the
Memphis Jewish Federation that
has taken the initiative to
provide direct assistance to the
Jewish people of Jackson."
Based on guidelines developed
in previous flood relief efforts,
Council assisted Jackson's
Jewish community in forming a
committee to supervise flood
relief and in beginning to draw up
assessment reports of financial
needs and resources.
German 'First
Neo-Nazis Grilled in Court
Background Report
Sadat, Begin Tilt at Beersheba
Egyptian President Anwar Sadat
urged moderation rather than
"self-righteousness" as the
means of assuring "compre-
hensive peace in the Mideast."
Sadat spoke at Ben Gurion
University here. He began his
brief speech noting the common
heritage of both Islam and
Judaism, which originated with
the common forefather
Sadat noted that Jews and
Moslems have had good relations
through many generations, even
at times when the relations be-
tween Jews and non-Jews else-
where deteriorated. "It is the
responsibility of those among us
who are endowed with vision, to
revive such spirit today," Sadat
IN AN implied reference to the
forthcoming autonomy talks,
Sadat said the challenge now is
not one of scoring a point here
and there, rather building a
viable structure for peace.
"Fanaticism and self-righteous-
ness are no answer to the com-
plex problems of today. The
answer is tolerance, compassion
and magnaminity. We will be
judged not by the hard positions
we took, but by the wounds we
heal, the souls we save and the
suffering we eliminate."
Sadat made a point of noting
once again that the progress
made so far was but the first step
toward a "comprehensive peace.
It was a giant step but it
must be followed up and com-
pleted. Events of the recent past
have shouted away all concepts
of security based on territorial
expansion and denial of national
"The real key to security is
genuine acceptance, without
reservation. I have no doubt that
you will demonstrate in the
months ahead, the willingness to
live in peace with all your neigh-
bors, including the Palestinian
people," Sadat declared.
IN REPLY, Prime Minister
Menachem Begin also recalled
the heritage of the Jewish people,
returning to their homeland after
19 centuries. Unlike Sadat,
however, Begin stressed the
positive prospects lying in the
future. Practical steps have
already been taken of normal-
ization, he said, noting that
Israeli ships have passed through
the Suez Canal and the transfer
of El Arish to Egyptian
"I am convinced that both
countries are determined to carry
out faithfully all the commit-
ments under the peace treaty,"
he said.
To the applause of the
audience, Begin sent in his name

German court has opened
criminal proceedings against six
neo-Nazis accused of establishing
a terrorist organization, as well
as committing individual crimes.
It is the first time in legal history
that the chief federal prosecutor
has pressed charges against neo-
Nazis or right-wing extremists
for terrorist activities.
The defendants are former
Army Lt. Michael Kuehen, 24,
described as the "brains" behind
the gang which calls itself the
"Werewolf Underground
HE WAS discharged from the
military for neo-Nazi activities;
Lothar-Harold Schulte, 26, a
former non-commissioned officer;
Lutz Wegener, 22; Uwe Rohwer,
42; Klaus Dieter Puls, 37; and
Manfred Boerm, 29.
All are former members of the
new Nazi Party in north Ger-
many, said to have a membership
of 200. They are charged, among
other things, with raids and bur-
glaries to obtain arms and money
to finance terrorist attacks.
The High Court of Celle in
north Germany is conducting the
trial behind the walls of Bueck-
burg prison as a security
precaution. It fears that other
neo-Nazis may try to free the
defendants or commit acts of
violence against the court or the
According to the prosecutor.
the Werewolf' gang had
detailed plans to raid German
Army and NATO installations
and to bomb the Berlin wall The
indictment charges them with an
attempted attack on a British
forces broadcasting service
transmitter in north Germany.
PLANS WERE also found to
free Hitler's former deputy,
Rudolf Hess, from Spandau
prison where he is serving a life
sentence, to attack East German
border guards and to attack the
memorial at the former Bergen-
Belsen concentration camp.
Members of the gang were
instructed to raid arms shops and 9
banks as a test of their
"courage," the charges said.
Schulte and Wegener are
accused in addition of raiding the
guard room at an army barracks
to steal a submachinegun. Later
they broke into a Cologne apart-
ment and made off with two
rifles, jewels and cash worth
60,000 Marks. In December,
1977, they broke into an army
ammunition depot and stole
1,000 rounds of ammunition.
TWO WEEKS later, they
robbed a Hamburg bank of
60,000 Marks in cash. Schulte
and Wegener, along with Roh-
wer, Puls and Boerm attacked
four Dutch NATO soldiers at a
training camp in February, 1978,
and stole their submachineguns
and ammunition.
The trial is expected to last 25
days during which several dozen
witnesses will be heard.
Sadat and Begin; confidential message
President Jimmy Carter who
rendered to us historic services in
bringing about this historic
IN AN indirect response to
Sadat, Begin said "Israel has
already given proof of her good
faith." He noted that the Jor-
danians refused the invitation to
join the autonomy talks. "If we
acted by the letter itself we could
have asked to postpone the nego-
tiations until Jordan joined the
talks. But we do not say so. Not-
withstanding the tact that
Jordan refuses to join the talks,
we have already started to nego-
tiate, with the purpose of
reaching an agreement," Begin
He noted that the "con-
structive idea of autonomy is
ours. At Camp David it was
accepted by both the Egyptian
and the American delegations. It
is a progressive, noble idea." He
condemned the "genocide! PLO,"
explaining the need for Israel to
be in charge of security in the
occupied territories.
President Sadat was officially
welcomed to Beersheba by
President Yitzhak Navon of
Israel who urged him to speed up
the normalization process and
thereby "correct the distorted
image of Israel as reflected in the
Egyptian press."
NAVON ALSO stressed the
great sacrifice made by Israel in
relinquishing a territory of such
strategic importance as Sinai.
"But the price was a small one to
pay for the advent of peace," he
In his response, Sadat
departed from his prepared text
to reply to Navon's reference to
Sinai. Referring to his visit to
Israel and speech before the
Knesset in November, 1977, the
Egyptian leader declared, "I did
not come to the Knesset to secure
additional land. Territories will
not ensure security. I came rather
to open a new page between our
friendship and neighborliness,

Yale Collection in 1915, remained
undeciphered for over 60 years at
Yale due to its poor state of
preservation and despite its
supreme archaeological value.
The second tablet, at Munich
University, had just been ex-
cavated at the site of ancient lain
in Iraq by the Munich archaeo-
logical expedition.
THE TEL AVIV Assyriologiat
sent his partial transliteration
and translation of the text to
Prof. Dietz Edzard of Munich
University, a known expert in
Assyriology and a colleague of
Dr. Kutscner's. Edzard consulted
with Prof. Wilcke. who identified
the brick as an exact duplicate of
the one he was working on.
The text, inscribed in the Old
Babylonian dialect of Akkadian,
was written on each tablet twice,
once on the surface and once
around the sides. Thus, between
the four texts and the coincidence
of their simultaneous decipher-
ment, the experts were able to
bring alive an era in history
about which little detail was
hitherto known.
The tablet tells of Babylonian
King Takil-uissu who reigned
over the state of Malgium, who
established a Temple dedicated
to the sky god, Anum, and his
aide, Ninshubur, and to the god-
dess Ulmashitum.
THE TABLET specifies daily
religious cultic procedures and
ceremonies as well as new moon
and full moon festivals. King
Takil-ilissu, whose interest in
inscribing the tablet may either
have been the public relations or
historical value of his con-
struction of the Temple, had to
wait over 3,700 years for the
world to find out about his con-
of the polisher fetches out the
colours, makes the surface shine,
and discovers every ornamental

And the Harvard University
philosopher, George Santayana,
said that education that ends at
school and not taken up at home
is no education at all.
THOSE WHO oppose the
functional literacy test are not
unique in seeing education as a
duty to be performed by the
school alone especially because
they fear, and rightly so, that the
academic failure of their children
says something about them-
selves. The sad fact is that most
Americans see school this way.
They reduce school to a slightly
more glorified baby-sitting insti-
tution. As parents, they bring
little or nothing of themselves to
their children's education.
To do this, parents need not be
PhD's. Rather they must inspire,
by the example of their own lives,
which they seem unable or un-
willing to do, a sense of reverence
and awe for education in the
minds of their children.
They must make their children
want to learn not simply to sit
back and morosely challenge
someone to teach them some-
thing. These are two very dif-
ferent things indeed.
IF PARENTS refuse this
responsibility, if they refuse to
inculcate a sense of respect for
knowledge and' learning, then
their failure becomes their
children's, as well. They make in-
different clods of their children
even as they, themselves, are
indifferent. They inspire their
children to expect that teachers
perform some miraculous act by
which they will miraculously
become educated even as they,
themselves, expect such miracles.
When miracles fail to occur,
and they never do occur, both
parents and children, each in
their own way, are bitterly
A youngster who has not, as
Steele said over 250 years ago,
seen education as a process which
"fetches out the colours, makes
the surface shine," blames his
teacher for this failure in himself.
And the parent who fails the
hild in inspiring him to want to
be a part of this process blames
the teacher, too, as a seemingly
logical but dishonest alternative
to blaming himself.
THAT IS the lazy thing to do;
it is a natural outgrowth of the
decline in educational standards
since. World War II unmodified
by misplaced egalitarianism and
in the loathesome rise in parental
permissiveness that leaves the
child to form his own ill-con-
ceived emotional attitudes
toward the educational process.
In such an egalitarian society
as ours, we have come to expect
some benign Big Brother, a
contradiction in OrweDian terms,
to do everything for us even to
educate us. Although it is too
late, the functional literacy test is
designed to reverse these crip-
pling cultural attitudes in at least
one area of our false expectations.
If nothing else, the test is a
starting salvo in the war to do so.
Israel Recommends Early
Release of Spy for Arabs
Justice Ministry recommended
the early release from prison of
Terry Fleener, 24, an American
woman serving a five-year
sentence on charges of spying for
a Palestinian terrorist
organization. It also recom-
mended the release of Ludvina
Jannsen, 26, of Holland, serving
a six-year term on similar
A Ministry spokesman said
Fleener could be freed by the end
of June and Jannsen in Septem-
ber, both for "good conduct."
FLEENER, who admitted to
the charges before she was sen-
tenced 15 months ago, has been
the subject of representations by
the U.S. government on the
highest levels. On May 14, Sec-
retary of State Cyrus Vance
asked Justice Minister Shmuel
Tamir to take action for her
In Washington State Depart-
ment spokesman Thomas Reston
said the U.S Embassy in Tel
Aviv has been informed that
Tamir would recommend to
President Yitzhak Navon that
Fleener's sentence be reduced to
two and a half years. He quoted
an Israeli Justice Ministry
spokesman as saying that it
could be further reduced by one-
third for good behavior if the
prison warden and a special
appeals committee concurred.
In that case, the former
Kuwait Airlines stewardess who
comes from Texas, would be
eligible for release on June 25,
Reston said.
women suspected of terrorist
activity were detained following
the arrest of another woman,
Atai Ashref, 22, of Ramallah.
Ashraf was seized after she
planted a bomb in a trash can at
the Jerusalem central bus tor-
Her interrogation led to the
arrest of others. A military
spokesman said the three women
belonged to a gang that carried
out a series of terrorist acts which
claimed at least four lives and
injured 53 persons.
Who cares
about YS*cov?
Yacov and his family were lucky. They were among the last to leave
a Moslem "area of distress'' before the gates closed down. But now
they wonder if they've come home only to be left behind. Yacov has
to learn a new trade. His wife needs adjustment counseling and
guidance. His teenage children, on the verge of dropping out of
school, need special instruction. They are all on waiting lists.
There are many Yacovs. In Israel. Here. All over the world. Highly
visible when they arrive in a free land... invisible all too soon. It's
possible to forget them.
But to forget Ybcoo you must forget who you are. You must ignore
a heritage of six thousand years of shared joy and suffering the
oneness of allJews everywhere. Yacov is you. His needs and his
family's needs are your needs with a different emphasis.
Renew yourself as you renew their lives- and Jewish life
everywhere. Make your pledge to the 1979 campaign.

Reform Hebrew CongregationSelects Rabbi Samuel Silver
Rabbi Samuel Silver has been
selected as spiritual leader of the
one-year-old Reform Hebrew
Congregation of Delray Beach.
President Jerome Gilbert and
presid- nt-elect Larry Sommers
jointly announced that Dr.
Samu. Silver, an orator and
autho will be the rabbi of the
congi .ition as of Sept. 1.
Rah'.ii Silver helped organize
the li eral congregation when
residents of this area decided
they needed one to fill the void
between Boca Raton and West
Palm Beach.
Rabbi and Mrs. Silver, a
concert pianist and organist, con-
ducted the group's first worship
service last July. Since then
Rabbi Emmet Frank has served
as Sabbath Eve leader for the
congregation which now has a
membership of over 100 families.
Rabbi Silver, currently the
spiritual leader of the Jewish
Community Center of Lee
County in Cape Coral, is known
to many Florida residents
because of frequent appearances
on television and radio and
because he was once on the staff
of the National Reform Jewish
Body, the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations.
Dr. Silver is a native of
Wilmington, Del. After or-
dination at the Cincinnati, Ohio,

College, he became director of the
Hillel Foundation of the Univer-
sity of Maryland. He served
during World War II as an Army
chaplain with the infantry, en-
ding his tour in the Philippines.
After demobilization, Rabbi
Silver served at the Euclid
Avenue Temple, Cleveland, and
then became director of public
information for the National
Reform Group.
Elected rabbi of Temple Sinai,
Stamford, Conn., in 1954, he
remained in that pulpit until
retirement last year.
His credo seems to be finding
good and delight in life and in
writing. One of his six books is
entitled How To Enjoy This
Moment. He and his wife, Elaine,
a graduate of the Juilliard School
of Music, have appeared before
audiences the world over in
musical programs. They are the
parents of five boys.
In addition to serving various
other congregations in the course
of his career, Rabbi Silver has
been president of the National
Association of Jewish Chaplains
of the Armed Forces, a trustee of
the Military Chaplains Asso-
ciation and president of the
Clergy Association of Stamford.

1961. Wilkinson
Sword introduced
the Super Sword-
Edge stainless steel
blade and, for maybe the
first time in shaving history,
demand far exceeded
Shavers went scurrying from
store to store trying to find these
blades, then stood in long
lines waiting to buy
Now, years later,
Wilkinson Sword has
introduced the Silver
Swordour finest
twin blade ever. By
virtue of some clever
ingenuity it also
happens to be less
expensive. So guess
what? There's not
Silver Swords.out
there to go
Shavers who
want to "Hi Yo
Silver Away"
their beard,who
want to turn
UlSsifcsSy their twin blade razors
into smooth shaving,
comfortable Silver
Swords are having a
hard time finding them
(note: the Silver
Sword twin blades are
ingeniously made to
fit any twin blade
razors, including
Gillette Atra,"Trac II**
and Schick* Super II).
But we urge you not
to give up. We apologize
for the shortage and the
inconvenience. Seems that one
of these days we'11 just have to
learn how to stop making our
blades so well, v^ ^
