Collection Chairman of the
Jewish Federation of Palm Beach
County's 1979 Combined Jewish
Appeal-Israel Emergency Fund
Campaign, it was announced
today by Alan L. Shulman,
"We are all aware of the
serious economic situation that
exists in Israel today," stated Dr.
Shugarman. "And we are aware
of the increasing degree of Jewish
need in our own community. In
meeting our campaign com-
mitment to fund the programs
meeting those needs, we have the
opportunity to make a decisive
difference in the quality of Jewish
Dr. Shugarman
faced by the Jewish Agency in
"Part of the critical problem Israel and by our Jewish
Federation at home results from
a lack of cash," Shugarman
continued. "A Soviet Jew new to
Israel cannot start working, for
example, if job retraining
programs have been postponed
because of budget cutbacks. The
elderly in our own community
cannot receive proper attention if
we cannot fund special programs
to meet their needs.
"We are being asked,"
Shugarman concluded, "as
concerned, committed members
of our Jewish community, to
honor our campaign pledges and
pay all or as much as possible
today to make a decisive dif-
ference in the quality of Jewish
life everywhere. We, in Palm
Beach County have had the most
successful campaign in terms of
dollars pledged; let's make it the
most successful in dollars paid."

Earlier, the Iraqi Labor Minister
read out a memorandum sub-
mitted by the Arab labor
ministers demanding that the
UN agency reexamine Israel's
membership in the organization.
Following a point of order by
the Israeli Ambassador to the
UN in Geneva, Yoel Barromi, the
chairman ruled that the
memorandum could not be ac-
cepted as a proposal, only as a
speech. No agenda items directed
against Israel had been filed in
advance of the ILO meeting.

of Arab workers in the Israel-
administered territories, said, "li

Day School Has Record Staff Members Take Part in Seminars
Enrollment at Opening
The Jewish Community Day
School began its 1979 / 80 school
year on Wednesday, Sept. 5, with
an enrollment that exceeded last
year's record opening enrollment
of 105 students in pre-kinder
garten through eighth grade. In a
number of grades particularly
the lower grades class regis-
tration is at or near capacity.
The South County Branch,
under the guidance of Dr. Ilene
Gerber, the assistant director of
- > the JCDS, will begin school at
Temple Beth El, 333 SW 4th
Ave., Boca Raton, with an enroll-
ment of more than 30 students in
^Grades I V.
Barry Krischer, president of
the JCDS, expressed his satisfac-
tion with the current enrollment
trend and indicated that efforts
will be made to accommodate all
children desiring to enroll. "This
may necessitate splitting classes,
if required, for the first time in
the history of the school."
Several innovations planned
for this school year were outlined
by Mordecai Levow, the school's
director. Among these are: an
after-school care program, a
formal library and librarian, an
expanded physical education
program, an expanded creative
arts program and modular
scheduling for grades four to
The After-School Care Pro-
gram will be available only to
enrolled students and will
provide supervised recreation
'activities under the guidance of
Lori Sheffield. Ms. Sheffield is
the instructional aide and
physical education instructor in
the Primary Department. She
has a degree in physical
education and recreation and has
supervised a similar program for
the Akron, Ohio YWCA. This
new program will permit working
parents to consider the JCDS for
their children.
The school library and media
services will be housed in a new
library area in the Youth Lounge.
Mrs. Elaine Sher, the new
librarian / media person, will be
available to students and faculty
two days a week. She will be at
the South County Branch one
day a week.
Francine Krawitz, the new
physical education instructor,
also will serve as the physical
education director at the Jewish
Community Center. Ms. Krawitz,
who is an expert in gymnastics as
well as team sports, has
developed a physical education
program that emphasizes
development of specific skills on
each age level and expanded
inter-school sports activities.
The modular schedule will
permit an expanded art and
music program which will allow
for the formation of a school choir
and creative art activities, in
addition to scheduled classes.
New faculty members this year
for the main campus are: Gail
Bloch, Debra Blumberg and
Mania Gavrin. For the South
County Branch are: Hadassa
Weiner, Mary Gentile, Marcia
Canar, Cecile Smith and Sherri
The staff of the Jewish Com-
munity Day School will par-
ticipate in an intensive pro-
fessional growth program both in
the General Studies and Judaic
Studies areas, designed to
enhance their skills.
Faculty members attended an
all-day seminar, sponsored by the
Central Agency for Jewish Edu-
cation, the Conference on
Alternatives in Jewish Education
at Rutgers University and the
intensive Hebrew language
seminar, sponsored by the school
itself. The Conference on Alter-
natives in Jewish Education is
the largest such Jewish edu-
cational conclave. It brings
together more than 1,000
teachers principals and youth
leaders for five days of work-
shops and seminars.
Attending the conference from
the Palm Beach County area were
Debra Blumberg, Renee Seal and
Mordecai Levow. In addition,
Ruth Levow, the new education
director of Temple Beth El, West
Palm Beach, and Terry Schwartz,
new educational director of B'nai
To rah of Boca Raton, were in
attendance. The opportunity for
the JCDS teachers to attend this
conference was made possible by
a grant from the Jewish Fed-
eration of Palm Beach County.
The B'yad Halashon Work-
shop was led by Hadassa Weiner,
the new Hebrew language studies
coordinator and head teacher of
the Judaic Studies staff at the
South County Branch of the I
JCDS, and was open to all
teachers in the Jewish com-
munity. The seminar was an
intensive 30-hour course covering
all aspects of theory and practice
and included demonstration
teaching and materials
preparation. The B'yad Halashon
method is an audio-visual system
for teaching Hebrew. This ap-
proach utilizes all of the students'
senses to teach Modern Hebrew.
Teachers trained in the use of this
method ""ill find the skills and
insights gained transferable to
any text or approach, said
The seminar was held on Aug.
29, 30, 31 and Sept. 4, at Temple
Beth El, West Palm Beach. This
course was creditable for license
certification by the Central
Agency for Jewish Education,
Prior to the opening of school-
secular faculty members par-
ticipated in an In-Service Work-
shop on curriculum planning,

discipline limits appropriate for
the school.

Death as Boomerang
In the worst sense of the word, there is
something medieval about world revolutionaries in
the cause of "freedom," meaning freedom as only
they see it, who shout "Death!" to their enemies.
An example is the nauseous demonstration of
some 150 American Blacks this week before the
Israel Mission in New York City, who called for
death to Israel, Zionism and just about every other
symbol of their rage they could muster.
We had hoped that this sort of demented
behavior would be avoided in our own country, where
there is an equally rich and varied history of political
dissent and disagreement without violence.
Instead, they seek to rekindle the flames of their
revolution in the 1960's which, in the end, consumed
even one of their own sacred leaders, Dr. Martin
King, Jr., in an ironic twist of fate ironic in the
sense that Dr. King was opposed to violence above
all things.
We could remind the Black demonstrators this
week that violence begets violence or that those who
live by the sword shall perish by the sword. But these
are aphorisms whose meaning has been blunted by
unjudicious repetition.
Iran is a better example. Many of those who
cried "Death to the Shah!" and who were violent in
the cause of the Ayatollah Khomeini are themselves
dead now, long since judged guilty of some unnamed
revolutionary miscarriage by the very change they
believed would liberate them from oppression.
Dr. Goldmann To Go A'Calling
There is something of the senile in Dr. Nahum
Goldmann's persistent public statement that he
would not hesitate to meet with PLO Chief Yasir
Arafat if an invitation to him to do so were
Dr. Goldmann's persistence has the vocal edge
of aged petulance and egotism to it which, in itself,
would be his own business but for the fact that
neither the world, nor Yasir Arafat more specifically,
can forget that he is former president of the World
Jewish Congress.
In our view, Dr. Goldmann will do inestimable
harm to Israel, and in the wake of the Andrew Young
cause celebre and the Pandora's Box that has
opened, if he manages in the end to meet with Arafat.
It is specious for him to reason that today he is
a private citizen, no longer identified with the WJC
and therefore able to do just exactly what he wants.
Neither Arafat nor the rest of Araby sees him this
way, and the propagandists coup in their favor such
a meeting would bring is incalculable.
Dangerous Time for U.S. Jewry
' Holocaust9 Again
We note with interest the second national
showing of Holocaust due beginning Sept. 10 on
NBC. We say "interest" because we do not waver
from our original evaluation of the TV melodrama as
a fictional representation of the Jewish agony during
the Hitler era with little connection to historical
On the other hand, we have never hesitated to
report and observe upon the incredible impact of
Holocaust showings in Europe and especially
Germany, where the production led to an enormous
raising of consciousness to the genocidal murder of
the six-million.
If it is melodrama and frank soap opera methods
that were needed to achieve this end, then the pro-
duction deserves praise without searching for other
reasons to criticize it either historically or ar-

Ambassador Andrew Young is
one of the most dangerous events
in the history of the Jewish com-
munity in America. For the first
time, Jews are openly being
accused of having manipulated
the political affairs of the nation
to their own best interest and
to the nation's worst-
There is a parallel to be drawn
between the Young resignation
and the American reaction to the
rise of the Hitler Third Reich in
its early stages. Jews are pur-
ported to have played a para-
mount role in both.
BUT IN the case of Hitler and
the Nazis, the nation could rise
above its incipient, phlegmatic
anti-Semitism; it could come to
see the Germany of that era as
spiritually evil and secularly anti-
human. It could finally conceive
of Hitler and the Nazis as the
enemy of the American way of
It is ironic that in the case of
Andrew Young, this is not so. In
a reversal of fortune, the public
equation is that Jews equal
Zionism; Zionism equals Israel.
And since the 1973 war, this has
. what has ensued is not
a Black Jewish confron-
tation any more than the
Hitler era was a German -
Jewish confrontation .
it is a Black White con-
frontation, with the Jews
being singled out as the
first and easiest target for
what is conceived of as an
ultimate Third World Pal-
estinian victory.
been a negative equation, not a
positive one. In essence, Jews are
now seen as the evil force; Jews
are now the anti-humanist op-
pressors in the Middle East, wha
forced Young to resign becaua?
as a Black, he was drawn to the
Third World cause. Or so thl
argument goes.
HOW THE Palestinians have
come to seize the flag of the ranks
of the downtrodden from the
erstwhile publicly-favored
Israelis is beside the point here.
The fact is they have done that,
and very successfully.
The link between the Black
community of America and the
Palestinian cause is completely
irrational, but one can under-
stand how it developed in the tie
that binds the disadvantaged and
the underprivileged.
When Ambassador Young
resigned following his u
authorized, clandestine meeting
with a Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization spokesman, the Pales-
tinian world promptly made ha',
of it in the way it did at the Inter-
national Women's Year Con-
ference in Mexico and at United
Nations sessions both before and
after that with yet another one of
those nasty equations: Jews
equal Zionism; Zionism equals
racism; Jews equal racism.
IT WOULD probably be
inaccurate to say that Black anti-
Semitism grew with the lethal
growth of this equation.
I am only guessing, but my
hunch is that it traces back to the
1960's and the heyday of Black
hotheads like Stokely Carmichael
and H. Rap Brown, Huey
Newton and Ron Karenga, who
deplored the high profile of Jews
in the Black civil rights move-
ment because they deplored what
they conceived of as an equally
high and oppressive profile of
Jews in the commercial life of the
ghetto. \
In any case, there can be no
doubt that the Young resignation
is now bringing Black anti-
Semitism into prominence as
never before. Furthermore, it is
linked to Third World political
movements that give this anti-
Semitism a certain quality of
movements are iur Pandora's
Box. It opened long ago in South
Africa, and inevitably it is
opening for us now. Unhappily,
American Jews and their
relationship to Israel are being

Trip to Egypt
Birthplace of Our Bible History
CAIRO Immediately, upon
the exciting news that, at long
last, Egypt and Israel had signed
a peace treaty, a group of us from
Wayne State University who
were to attend the Ninth Annual
Jerusalem International Book
Fair arranged a stopover in
Egypt. We spent about a week
sightseeing in Cairo and in
southern Egypt. We took a ship
up the Nile to go south,
Egypt is the birthplace the
matrix of our Bible history.
Our Jewish patriarchs, Abraham,
Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, moses, all
these and more, lived in this land.
The Egyptians call Abraham the
first prophet of God. After him,
they substituted Ismael for
and revere, such places as the
Chapel of the Burning Bush, the
site where God first revealed
Himself to Moses; the Springs of
Moses, where Moses drew water
when he struck the rock with his
rod; Mount Moses (or Mt. Sinai
or Mt. Horeb), where God gave
Moses the Ten Commandments.
Some say the Egyptian name,
Moses, is derived from the last
half of the name Thutmosis.
Leonard N. Simons, a
leading Michigan ad-
vertising executive, was a
member of the Wayne
State University press
delegation to the

Book Fair. Preceding it,
the delegation was in
There were four kings with this

Dynasty (1575-1308BCE). Moses

The Exodus, under Moses'
leadership, took place in this time
period. The importance of the
Exodus in Jewish theology is well
known and Egyptian sources
have numerous details of the
Bible story. But, no direct
Egyptian references to the
Exodus have been found.
IN THE great Egyptian
Museum of Antiquities, there are
countless statues, monuments,
fragments of ancient relics and
artifacts, mummies, jewelry.

Strauss Seen Emerging Stronger Than Ever
Continued from Page 1
I on national television to explain
the new U.S. position to the
1 American people and the world-
wide media and to caution the
Security Council that it should
postpone again its session
dealing with the Palestinians.
In addition, it was Strauss who
set it straight that the PLO had
first to recognize Israel's right to
exist within the meaning of
Security Council Resolution 242
before the U.S. would deal with
that terrorist force.
IT ALSO was Strauss who
first spoke out for the Adminis-
tration against the leaders of the
Southern Christian Leadership
Conference who courted the PLO
and scored Israel and the Amer-
ican Jewish community.
Among the circumstances
evidencing the sad disarray of the
U.S. Middle East policy before
the Strauss ideas took hold at the
White House is that lame-duck
Ambassador Andrew Young
chaired the UN debate as the
Council's President while con-
tinuing as the chief U.S. repre-
sentative at the UN until his
successor is named.
Much of the responsibility for
the disarray points directly at the
White House and Carter himself.
The Administration's actions
both before and after the Young
resignation indicate the depth of
the President's personal par-
ON THE point of U.S. leader-
ship in the negotiations, Carter
had named Strauss with
authority to act for him. But he
demanded Strauss take the ill-
fated resolution idea to Cairo and
While White House sources
now say this was a relatively mild
U.S. resolution that could block a
tougher Arab-initiated action,
others saw the Carter proposal as
one more step towards estab-
lishing Palestinian domination
over the West Bank and Gaza
Strip and causing Israel to with-
draw from those areas and East
Jerusalem in line with the Presi-
dent's view, as he expressed in
Clinton, Mass., in the third
month of his Presidency.
But this proposal which
Strauss had fought, boomer-
anged, and Strauss came back
with demands for change
because, observers say, he saw
that such a proposal would
undercut Israel's opposition to
the PLO and would therefore
cause Israel to repudiate the
Camp David commitments and
thus possibly affect the return of
Sinai to Egypt.
STILL undetermined is who
made the "suggestion" to Young
that he meet with the PLO UN
observer Zehadi Labib Terzi in
New York July 26. Terzi himself
now says that he firmly believes
Young came to meet him only
after getting permission from
"Nobody believed for a
minute," Terzi said, "that Young
was acting on his own." Terzi
pointed out ambassadors do not
engage in impulse buying, and

Young meet the PLO represen-
tative, this was not agreed upon.
But the Carter Administration
continues to be silent on who
made the "suggestions."
ANOTHER major factor in the
suspicions that more than Young
was involved in his actions is that
U.S. Ambassador to Austria,
Milton Wolf, met three times
with PLO officials in Vienna and
all that the State Department did
was to "remind" him of the U.S.
policy not to talk to the PLO.
Wolf was described as on
intimate terms with Austrian
Chancellor Bruno Kreisky who
entertained PLO chief Yasir
Arafat in Vienna and endorsed
his views.
Meanwhile, Republican
Presidential candidate George
Bush called on Carter to clarify
his Administration's position on
the Middle East to help "soothe a
growing domestic discord."
IN A statement issued at his
campaign headquarters here,
Bush said "Ambassador Andrew
Young's resignation from his
post as the chief U.S. represen-
tative at the United Nations has
created a furor" that "is one more
example of the inconsistency and
incoherence that characterizes
the Carter Administration policy
in the Middle East."
Continuing, the statement
said: "Despite an incident that
exacerbated an already strained
relationship with Israel a
valued friend and strategic ally
and raised tension between the
Black and Jewish communities in
the United States, President
Carter has yet to issue a state-
ment which clarifies his Adminis-
tration's position in this matter
and soothe a growing domestic
It also urged Carter to clarify
the U.S. commitment to Israel
"for the sake of our own people,
the people of Israel and all those
who are seeking peace."

(safekeeping) was discovered. It
was rediscovered in 1896 by
Rabbi Solomon Schechter. A '
veritable treasure-trove of over
200,000 pages from sacred Jewish
books, scrolls, literary works, and
historical documents was found
in the attic. The oldest document
is dated in the year 750.
I checked my Encyclopedia
Judaica: "This synagogue was
originally built in 882 on the
ruins of a Coptic Church which'
was sold to the Jews." Old Cairo
was formerly called Postat. That
was where the great sage,
Maimonides and his family,
We were told the Ben Ezra ,
Synagogue was built on the very
site where Moses was found in
the Nile River bullrushes. Our
guide took us down some steps
on the outside of the building
where we saw an old wall. This
was the remains of the earlier
house of prayer. Alongside, \vas a
small branch of the Nile.
In that water, at that spot, the
founder of the Mosaic religion
was found. The Egyptian Jews .
believe this is so.
of the Giza (land of Goshen)
pyramids and sphinx on a
moonlight at a Son et lumiere
performance is truly awe-
inspiring. The Cheops pyramid is
one of the seven wonders of the
ancient world. It is about as taL
as a 48-story skyscraper. Each
stone is as high as a man. They
say it took 3 million such stones
weighing 5 -million tons, and
100,000 men working 20 years to
build it 5000 years ago.
When Prime Minister
Menachem Begin of Israel was
there for the peace treaty talks,
he said to President Sadat that
some of our ancestors helped
build the pyramids. With all due
respect to Begin, I doubt that
there were any Jews in Egypt at
that time. Jewish history is
intertwined with Egyptian
history going back a long, long
time, but not 5,000 years ago.
Their current guide books have
practically no mention of
Egyptian Jews. I think the
publishers deliberately omitted
all references to Jews on in-
structions from their government
except as Jews are identified
with ancient Egyptian history.
The 400-page book I bought,
under the caption "Population,"
said: "Lastly, Jews, who at all
times formed an important
minority in Egypt, have, for the
most part, left the country and
their community is on the way to
EGYPT (Arabic name, Masr)
has been called a gigantic open
air museum the land of museums,
mummies, and mosques. It has
the longest river in the world, the
Nile, and except for its palm-lined
shores that form a band of fer-
tility, the color of Egypt is
sandy brown with very, very
little green. Camels, water
buffalo, and donkeys help work
these narrow strips of green
fields. The weather is extremely
hot and dry only about five
days of rain all year.
Modern Cairo is jam-packed
with about 9-million people.
Some say it is on its way to
becoming the Calcutta of Africa.
The poverty of the city remains
insoluble. Unemployment and
inflation are at terrifying levels.
Public utilities are tem-
peramental servants. The cars
you see are old and decrepit. The
noisy, snarled traffic is un-
believable as it tries to get
through the narrow streets but
the population remains cheerful.
There are some excellent
hotels. The food is quite good.
Prices are reasonable, one of the
few places in the world where
they are still so. The Egyptians
were all very friendly even after
they found out we were Jewish.
They tried hard to make us
welcome. We experienced no
rancor. They seemed very
anxious for peace.

the Palm Beaches. Educators
have determined that only by
attending classes at least six
hours a week can a student learn
the Hebrew language sufficiently
to be conversant with the texts,
Prayer Book and Bible which are
so rich a part of our heritage.
The Beth El Religious School
begins with a Pre-School pro-
gram for four year olds which
meets for three hours on Sunday
mornings, as well as a kinder-

Dangerous Time for U.S. Jewry
Continued from Page 4-
used not as a key but a crow-
bar; not out of conviction but
Traditionally, white America's
prejudices against Blacks are at
least as incipient and without a
doubt less phlegmatic than they
are against Jews. Still, there is a
new tie that binds white and
Black America: the violent
eruption of Black anti-Jewish
feeling over the Young resig-
nation and the previously in-
choate White grudge against
Jews that Jews and their Zionism
are at fault for the energy crisis.
That is why I said at the
beginning that the Young resig-
nation is one of the most
dangerous events in the history
of the American Jewish com-
munity. The angry White-Black
phalanx, with little to relate its
disparate elements, is at least
united in its hatreds, and the
hatred waxes.
I ALSO said at the beginning
that it is ironic that the Young
resignation should be blamed on
the Jews. The fact is that what
has ensued is not a Black-Jewish
confrontation any more than the
Hitler era was a German-Jewish
No. If there is any con-
frontation at all, it is a Black-
White confrontation, or more
specifically a Third World-White
confrontation, with the Jews
being singled out as the first and
easiest target for what is con-
ceived of as an ultimate Third
World Palestinian victory.
Hard core anti-Semites talk
even today about the war against
Hitler as a war that Jews foisted
on the rest of the world, which
would be better off if the Jews
had been annihilated, and Hitler
WE HAVE still not arrived at
a time when this coin of the
bigot's realm can achieve any
broad-based respectability. Still,
.lews generally and Israel
specifically are increasingly being
used as surrogates for what is
clearly the Third World's war
against the White intellectual
and cultural dominion over
western civilization in which
Jews, despite their miniscule
numbers, play a significant role.
If Blacks are increasingly
being afforded the opportunity of
joining that dominion, they are
sufficiently dissatisfied with the
pace of their own progress as to
become patsies for ultimate Third
World ends. They, too, are minis-
cule in numbers at least for the
moment. Why can not things go
for them like they go for the
Jew3? they wonder. The facile
answer they give themselves is
that in however low esteem Jews
may be held in some quarters,
they are at least White; Blacks
are not, and so the "obvious"
enemy is the Jews, whose ex-
perience they can not emulate.
This explains Ralph Aber-
nathy's attack upon the
American Jewish community in
Cocoa Beach on Sunday and the
Rev. Jesse Jackson's demand
that the United State recognize
the Palestine Liberation
Organization. One thing they can
emulate in the Jews, and that is a
politicization of their previously
domestically-oriented concerns.
IN THE END, that Jews and
Israel are surrogates for White
western civilization in the new
war against it is clear from Arab
charges against the very
existence of Israel as a bastion of
"imperialism" and "western
colonialism" in the Middle East
irhich must be rooted out. Cries
Iran such as "Death to Carter
Death to Begin" are a linking
of the enemy there, and through-
out the Third World, which tells
the whole story. To wage war
against the United States as
the infidel dog's ultimate redoubt
is out of the question.
But Israel and the Jews are
easy pickings. It is not Jews,
Zionism, Israel that are the
enemies, but only as Jews,
Zionism and Israel are sui generis
both White and western.
It is too bad that the Black
community in America fails to
perceive this, and just how their
anger over the Young resignation
is really being manipulated inter-
nationally without regard to then-
own best interests. But then so
does the White community fail to
perceive this, which in itself
becomes a tool not only of its own
disaf feet ions over energy, but
of bigots who hate both Blacks
and Jews.
The times are perilous for us
beyond calculation.

B'nal Torah Congregation

On Friday evening, Sept. 21,
Jewish people all over the world
will gather in synagogues and
temples to usher in the New Year,
5740. The first 10 days of the
New Year are devoted to serious
thoughts about life, which is a
gift from God, for which man is
responsible to God because He
created man in His own image.
Special poetic compositions are
recited during these 10 days in
order to create a mood of
seriousness, sanctity and
The New Year begins with
Rosh Hashanah (Sept. 25-26)
which is observed for one day by
Reform Jews and for two days by
Conservative and Orthodox
Jews. On Rosh Hashanah, Jews
acknowledge that God not only
created the world but that He
also governs continuously all
creatures, including man.
Jews pray for the day when all
mankind will acknowledge God
as One, as the King of the
Universe and as the Judge of
Mankind. Rosh Hashanah is not
only New Year's Day but also a
Yom Hazikoron-A Day of
Remembrance. It is a day when
one should look back and recall
what he has done and what he
has failed to do in order to help
hasten the coming of the
Messiah, and in order to be
deserving of another year of life,
health and peace. He prays for a
life which will make him worthy
of survival.
THE HIGJH Holy Day Mach-
zor is a book containing prayers,
Biblical readings and special
poetic compositions for this
period. These can be divided into
four themes which dominate
Jewish thought and action
during the first 10 days of the
New Year.
The first theme deals with
Malchuyot, prayers in which
Jews swear allegiance to God, in
whose hands their fate is secured.
The prayers deal with God's
sovereignty on earth and with
reminders that man lives in a
world which is God's domain, not
man's; that man is responsible to
God for the world and its en-
vironment as well as for his
actions. Like the other themes,
(his section is universal in nature,
w'for all men are children of God
ifnd live in His domain.
The second theme is dealt with
in the prayers known as
Ziehronot, which means
remembrance. God remembers
and man, too, must remem-
berhe must remember that he
is the product of history, that he
owes an obligation to past
generations which have con-
tributed to his well-being. A
special appeal is issued to the
Jewish people to remember their
pastthat they are descendants
of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
Moses, and the prophets, who
V y > > %;
taught the oneness of God, peace,
justice, mercy, righteousness,
brotherly love, and morality.
The third theme is known as
Shofarot. The shofar (the ram's
horn) is sounded during the High
Holy Days, to remind the Jew of
God's revelation at Mt. Sinai,
and of the Great Shofar which
will be sounded when the women
Messiah will come to redeem which,
mankind from idolatry and from
the grip of evil, hate, war and
destructiveness. The sound of the
shofar and the special prayers
surrounding this ceremony urges
the Jew and mankind to keep on
believing that evil will be
overcome and good will triumph.
lives but privately they practiced
On Kol Nidre night, the rabbis
and the congregations publicly
forgave them for their broken
promises and accepted them as
members of the congregation.
The theme of Kol Nidre was
extended to other men and
who made promises
for some reason or
another, they could not keep.
Their vows were disavowed. The
dissolution of vows, however,
applied only in man's relation to
God. Contracts or promises be-
tween man and man could only be
disavowed by restitution.
THE DAY following Kol Nidre
is Yom Kippur, a day of fasting,
THE FOURTH theme of the prayer and pleas for forgiveness
High Holy Days is expressed in from God with whom the Jew
the prayer known as Untaneh wanted to become at one: At-one-
Tokef, a theme that emphasizes ment. The whole day is spent in
the concept of Judgement. Man the synagogue in fasting,
is on trial. prayer and self denial. One ab-
"Who will live and who will stains ""O"1 fulfilling his natural
die?" are the questions which desires; it is a day of cleansing,
man must ask. Is man good On Yom Kippur, the Jew
enough to survive? God will concentrates on his spiritual well-
judge. On the first day of the being. His conduct on Yom

Life is opened. In this Book of readiness to "control" himself,
Life man's deeds and misdeeds for the sake of the good, the holy,
are recorded. God knows all the righteous life, and to involve
secrets. If man's record during himself in the task of making this
the past year was deficient, if world a better place in which to
man sinned, he has another live.
opportunity and "the evil decree
can be averted by repentance,
prayer and charity."
The intervening days between
Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur the Day of Atonement
(Oct. 4) are known as the Ten
Days of Repentance, and the
Sabbath during the penitential
season is called Shabat Shuvah,
the Sabbath of Repentance. A
portion from the Prophet Hosea
is read on that Sabbath. It
contains an exhortation to man
to repent, to return to God, and
to a more spiritual and more
meaningful life.
The Jew sits in judgment upon
himself during these days and,
through introspection, he
becomes aware of the gap that
exists between what he was and
what he could have become as
a parent, as a child, as a citizen in
his community the gap be-
tween promises and conduct,
standards and action. The gap
exists because he sinned "he
missed the mark."
HE RESOLVES to bridge the
gap during the coming year and
prays to God to give him another
chance, like a prisoner standing
before the judge, pleading for
mercy and justice. God is just,
but He is also merciful. He does
not wish the death of the sinner;
He wishes the death of sin. God
will pardon man for sins between
man and God.
The culmination of the
Penitential days is ushered in on
the eve of Yom Kippur (Oct. 4)
with a service known as Kol
Nidre All Vows. The Jewish
religion teaches that man must
be scrupulous in respect to
promises he makes. The words
which he utters are important.
Promises cannot be forgotten
whenever it is convenient. Only
scholars and the elders of the
community can absolve one from
obligations which, for some
reason or another, cannot be
Kol Nidre is a formula which is
chanted by the cantor in a
melody which goes back to the
fifteenth century when Jews,
especially in Spain, were forced to
renounce their Jewish faith or
perish. Publicly many Jews
Yom Kippur prayers include
special readings from the Bible.
One reading deals with
scapegoatism to teach that one
must not blame others for his
shortcomings, for his sins which
he commits against God and
man. One should confess his
multitudinous transgressions,
and ask the Lord for forgiveness.
An important feature of the
day is the Yizkor, the Memorial
Service, when special prayers are
recited for deceased members of
one's family. It also reminds the
worshipper of the important
lesson that while death awaits
each one of us, while every life
owes a death, death is not the end
of all existence, since we live in
the hearts and in the memories of
those who survive us.
Whether we are remembered
for good or for evil depends upon
the kind of life we live and upon
the contributions we make
toward the betterment of the
world and of mankind.
touchingly, the worshippers on
Yom Kippur also recite stories of
Jewish martyrs, those who died
Al Kiddush Has hem for the
sanctification of God's name.
Special prayers are recited for the
millions of Jewish men, women
and children who died during the
Holocaust, as well as for the
scholars and saints who died
during the Roman persecution of
the Jews.
The theme of Yom Kippur is
forgiveness. We ask God to
forgive us for our sins, and we
also ask forgiveness from those
we have wronged during the past
To summarize the Main
theme of the High Holy Days is
that God is not only in heaven
but also here on earth as the
power which can help us trans-
form ourselves and the world in
the preparation of the coming of
the Kingdom of God upon the
face of this earth. Jews do not
greet each other with the phrase
"A Happy New Year" but
with the phrase A Good
Year," because happiness can be
attained only when "goodness"

'Peace Lithographs
Presented to Carter
The early morning sun shone brightly on the
West Garden of the White House as a delegation
from Palm Beach met with a representative of
President Jimmy Carter. The peaceful quiet of the
morning paralleled the missions of the small
group who made the journey to present President
Carter with an artist's proof of the lithograph
According to J. Richard Miller, senior vice
president of Southland Advertising Agency, "On
March 27 the beginnings of peace came to the
wartorn Middle East with the auspicious signing
of the Peace Treaty between President Carter of
the United States, Prime Minister Begin of the
State of Israel and President Sadat of Egypt.
"To commemorate this occasion, the Jewish
Community Center of the Palm Beaches com-
missioned portrait artist, John Douglas Zaccheo,
to paint the three principals in the peace nego-
tiations. This painting was purchased on May 2
as part of the Israel Independence Day
Celebrations by the Suburban Bank of Lake
Worth, represented by Richard M. Brannan,
president of the bank.
"The stirring quality of the painting, which
places the three world leaders, in profile, with the
symbolic Dove of Peace flying over their heads, is
an inspiration for all to keep striving for peaceful
co-existence throughout the world. With this in
mind, we commissioned Mr. Zaccheo to produce a
series of lithographs of the painting and will
present three artist's proofs to each of the
countries involved in the peace negotiations," he
After the presentation at the White House, the
delegation, which also included Fran Witt of the
Jewish Community Center of the Palm Beaches,
Dr. Richard Shugarman, member of the advisory
board of Suburban Bank, and Richard M.
Brannan. president of the Suburban Bank,
presented an artist's proof of the lithograph to
Daniel Megiddo, first secretary of the Israeli
Embassy and to Dr. Hassouna, first counsel of
the Egyptian Embassy.
The lithographs will then make the journey to
Israel and Egypt and will hang in the Knesset
and Parliament of the respective countries. The
original painting of "Peace" is currently hanging
in the Suburban Bank, Lake Worth, and is in-
sured for $100,000.

Shown at the presentation of the 'Peace' lithograph are, from left to right, Daniel Megiddo of
the Israeli Embassy; Dr. Richard Shugarman, Richard Brannan, Richar Miller and Fran Witt.

Begin to Discuss
OU Supply
With Sadat
JERUSALEM One of the
main topics to be discussed next
week in the meeting between
Prime Minister Menachem Begin
and Egyptian President Anwar
Sadat will be the continued oil
supply to Israel from the oil fields
in Sinai after Israel returns the
area to Egypt at the end of
November, Begin told the Knes-
set Foreign Affairs and Security
Committee over the weekend.
Begin said that oil was the key
word for the heavy pressure
Western nations were exerting on
Israel recently. But, he added,
Israel will not give in to oil
pressure just as it will not give in
to demands to return to the 1967
borders. "If people try to exert
pressure, then this nation will not
surrender, and it prefers to eat
bread and margarine rather than
give way," Begin said.
tion of whether Israel is per-
mitted under Jewish law to give
up territories for peace has
become the latest issue of dispute
between the two Chief Rabbis.
Sephardi Ovadia Yosef says it
is, Ashkenazi Shlomo Goren says
it is not.
Yosef made his point last week
during a lecture to the annual
oral law conference at Yad Harav
Kook in Jerusalem. He said it
was entirely up to the govern-
ment to determine what borders
were necessary for security. As
far as the rabbis were concerned,
they could only determine that
halachically the main point was
indeed that of security. If
retaining the territories meant
war, bloodshed and injuries
then the concept oipikuah nefesh
(risk to life) applied, and it
shunted aside the miUvah of
retaining all of Eretz Israel.
The argument going around some Jewish
homes is: "Mott's is delicious"-or-"Mott's
are delicious." But there is never any
argument about DELICIOUS. Because
they are. Mott's captures all the
natural and sparkling taste
of the sun-ripened fruit. And
many Jewish housewives know
it. And that's why they serve
Mott's to the family.
Whether it's one of the
apple sauce varieties or
the prune products, you
just know it's the finest
because Mott's uses only
the finest quality apples
and sun-ripened prunes. L
So whether it should
be Mott's 'IS', or
Mott's "are/is"
