be held on Saturday, Dec. 8. at 7
p.m. at the home of Mr. and Mrs.

Highlighting the Campaign
Reception will be an address by
Rabbi Herbert A. Friedman,
former executive vice chairman of
the National United Jewish
Appeal and authority on Jewish
overseas needs and Israel's birth,
growth and development.
A GRADUATE of Yale
College, he was ordained by the
Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion. He served
as chaplain with the Ninth
Infantry Division in Germany
during and after World War II
and spearheaded efforts to help
Jewish survivors of the Nazi
death camps. Later he served as
assistant advisor on Jewish
affairs, to Gen. Lucius Clay,
commander of U.S. Occupation
Forces in Germany. During that
period, he was secretly recruited
into the Haganah and orked in
the illegal immigration operation
called Aliyah Bet."
He was an active supporter of
statehood for Israel, and while
serving congregations in Denver
and Milwaukee, he became
chairman of the UJA speakers
bureau and traveled widely
throughout America as a
volunteer, raising support for the
new state and the immigrants
flooding Israel's shores. In 1955,
he became the executive vice
chairman of the UJA national
campaign and executive
chairman in 1970.
After his long career with the
UJA, Rabbi Friedman and his
family made aliyah in 1971 and
settled in Jerusalem.
Known as an innovative
thinker and doer, Friedman
created the Young Leadership
Cabinet, bringing together young
men and women from all over the
country and instilling within
them a philosophy of Judaism
and a sense of commitment.
He established the Israel
Education Fund, which built
many schools and libraries
throughout the country;
developed the program of
fissions to Israel; and initiated
Rabbi Herbert A. Friedman
many of the methods and ideas
now in general use in fund raising
throughout the world.
PRESENTLY Rabbi Fried-
man is creating the Jerusalem
Academy, a secondary boarding
school for gifted and talented
pupils from Israel and the
Diaspora which he says, will offer
an unequakd education, both in
general and Jewish studies.

gifts committee are Stanley B.

makes the difference
There are several funeral chapels in South Florida who present
themselves as serving members of the Jewish faith. But they lack
one very important feature: they are not Jewish owned.
At Menorah Chapels, we firmly believe that Jewish ownership is
a prime consideration. Those who practice the Jewish faith can
best observe its religious traditions and precepts at a time as
significant as the death of a loved one.
Menorah Chapels are Broward County's oldest, established
funeral chapels. And that makes the difference

top position within the President's inner circle. As
the nominee to succeed Juanita Kreps as Secretary of
Commerce, Klutznick will join Robert Strauss and
Sol Linowitz in major presidential jobs.
Mr. Carter thus strengthens the impression he
made with an authorized address the other night by
Vice President Mondale before an Israel Bond
gathering in honor of Sam Rothberg.
There, Mondale reaffirmed the President's vow
that he is in favor of a unified Jerusalem open to all
religions, that he unequivocally opposes a new and
separate Palestinian state on the West Bank, and
that he will never deal with the PLO so long as the
PLO refuses to accept UN Res. 242 and 338 and to
recognize the nationhood of Israel.
Judging by Mr. Carter's statements in the
recent past, and by the actions of his State Depart-
ment, these reaf fir mat ions of principles he enun-
ciated during his 1976 campaign seem in fact to be
brand new positions. In effect, the President's words
have not seemed to be where his mouth is.
We trust that Mr. Klutznick, a longtime
distinguished Jewish community leader, will from
time to time in his new job help the President put the
A Key Program
The Israel Histadrut Foundation's annual
report meeting will be a function well worth at-
tending Dec. 4 at the Fontainebleau Hilton. Dr. Sol
Stein, national president; South Florida's own Rabbi
Leon Kronish, chairman of the board of directors;
and Moe Levin, national vice president, are slated for
What the Histadrut Foundation envisions for
Israel at the turn of the '80's is the "Decade of the
Negev," which it is clear must be developed speedily
to contain military and civilian installations in the
wake of the Egypt-Israel peace treaty.
In this context, the goals of the Foundation,
which mobilizes support for the network of health,
welfare and educational institutions through its
Deferred Giving Programs, will be to aid civilians
themselves to carve out new vistas in the Negev.
How that is to be done will be discussed in detail
at the Dec. 4 meeting. Since Histadrut serves more
than 75 percent of the social needs of Israel's
population, the organization's role in the Negev in
the 1980's will be a central one. So, too, can the role
of individual American Jews be a central one in
helping the Jewish State conquer the Negev.
The Israel Histadrut Foundation is a key.
i Founding Of Jewish Colony
By HELEN SILVER
The Argentine Embassy of-
ficially marked the 90th anniver-
sary of the founding of the first
Jewish agricultural colony in
Argentina by refugees fleeing
persecution in Europe. A press
release circulated by the
Embassy recounted the history
and accomplishments of the
Colonia Moisesville in Santa Fe
province, established on Nov. 14,
The founders were 824 Ortho-
dox Jews from Eastern Europe
who had arrived at Buenos Aires
shortly before in the North
German Lloyd steamer Ween
THE ARGENTINE Ambas-
sador to the U.S.. Jorge A. Aja-
Espil. said in a statement on that
occasion that "Argentina will
never forget the important con-
tributions of its Jewish com-
munity. I am glad to join in com-
memorating the anniversary of
the founding of that com-
The press release also quoted a
statement by the Argentine. Sec-
retary of State for Culture in
Buenos Aires, Dr. Raul Crespo
Montez, praising the con-
tributions of Argentina Jewry.
MY CUP will never cease
runnething over. First, President
Carter named Robert Strauss as
his special envoy to the Middle
East. Then, after asking Strauss
to take over as chief of his re-
election campaign, the President
announced the appointment of
Sol Linowitz to succeed Strauss
in the peace-negotiating slot.
And now comes Mr. Carter's
latest ploy, the appointment of
Philip M. Klutznick to fill the
void left when Juanita Kreps
resigned as Secretary of Com-
WHAT DOES this bevy of
Jews mean? Rabbi Alexander
Schindler put it best at a gather-
ing of some 2,000 members of the
United Synagogue of America in
Upstate New York last week,
when he said that the President is
practicing a form of "political
Schindler was talking about
Carter's timing in the enforced
resignation of Andrew Young to
get the heat off the adminis-
tration and onto the American
Jewish community Carter had
been looking to get rid of the ir-
repressible Young for a long time
and knew he would need a scape-
goat to take the jolt of Black
But there can be little doubt
that Schindler's analysis of
Carter's realpolitik aptly applies
to the Jewish appointments, as
well. The President's rationale is
simple. How are Jews going to
criticize Mr. Carter's tactics in
the Young affair and his brutal
role in the Middle East peace
negotiations when, at home, he
surrounds himself with a phalanx
of Jewish officials of his own
OF THE three Jewish per-
sonalities involved, two of them,
Strauss and Klutznick, are in-
credible egotists of the order, say,
of a John Connally or a Henrv
Kissinger. There would be little
use in attempting to dissuade
them from staying on little use
in suggesting to them that by
accepting their appointments
they are giving Mr. Carter the
kind of ammunition he oughtn't
But I am somewhat surprised
at Sol Linowitz, a longtime, dis-
tinguished American Jewish
community leader with far more
savvy about him than is apparent
in the fraternal enthusiasms that
exude from Mr. Klutznick, who
rather seems like a Georgie Jessel
in slightly more sophisticated
ambassadorial drag; or than Mr.
Strauss, the perennial relief
pitcher in the arena of political
opportunism, who never wins any
games, but who never loses any
If my hunch about the former
Xerox mogul is correct, he'll not
be able to tolerate the Carter
administration's tactics in the
Middle East for very long, which
are managing piecemeal to
implement the Rogers formula of
the first Nixon era with an eye
toward squeezing Israel back into
its 1948 borders.
STILL, the problem is not the
trio of appointees; they are
already captive and doing their
work as programmed. The
problem is the American Jewish
community and how it perceives
the President and
* What is important is that they
come to see Mr. Carter and his
shabby trickery for what they
are. The flaccid ideological
.commitments that permitted him
to sow his political favors broad-
side in the unappeasable garden
of anxious Jewish egotism is the
same flaccid Carter ideological
commitment to Israel in the
Middle East. This is to say that
there is no commitment, except
for useless palaver about biblical
Strip away the prayers, the
endless sermonizing, the Sunday
school classes, the soft southern
rhetoric, and you have a mouth-
ful of peanut brittle the tough,
chewy determination of the
Europeans, whose expediency in
Middle Eastern matters we
attack as petrodiplomacy.
JUDGING BY past naive
performance, it is beyond expec-
tation that the American Jewish
community will give up its
country-bumpkin assessments of
just who are and who are not its
political allies. Short of. say, an
obvious John Connally type, its
leaders are willing to make, and
in the past indeed have made,
short-term alliances with the very
I say short-term to emphasize
the fact that the alliances are
always disappointing because
they are always practical to the
point of sheer immorality, and
always severed not by the Jewish
community but by the devils in
its employ whose traitorous acts
at least have the virtue that they
In the Jewish propensity for
such alliances, there is no virtue
at all. But if Jews are willing to

They Masquerade as Jews
By BEN GALLOB
NEW YORK (JTA) Beth
Yeshua, described by the
Philadelphia Jewish Community
Relations Council as a group of
masquerading as Jews," has
cancelled a bid to buy a
residential building for worship
and a private school and dropped
a request for a needed change in
the zoning law.
Michael Masch, JCRC in-
terreligious affairs director, said
the group had an agreement of
sale to buy a three-story mansion
in Merion for $210,000. Merion is
a suburb contiguous to
Philadelphia and is part of Lower
Merion Township, an area
heavily populated by Jews. The
vacant building is up for sale by
the estate of a wealthy couple.
AN OUTPOURING of protest
at an an Oct. 23 session of the
Lower Merion Towhship Zoning
Hearing Board forced the board
to move a second session to
larger quarters. The second
session was cancelled when the
"congregation" withdrew its bid
to buy and its application to the
zoning board, Masch told the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
The group, which now meets in
a hotel, asked the zoning board
for permission to operate a house
of worship and a day school for 12
children from kindergarten to
ninth grade. The school, which
operates under the name
halutzim (Hebrew for pioneers) is
conducted in a private home.
Lawyers for the Merion Civic
Association, in opposing the
zoning petition, did not use the
JCRC charge that the group was
engaged in "deceptive practices'*
in the zoning hearing. Masch
said. He said the main opposition
complaint, supported by Jews
and non-Jewish residents, was
that the area already has several
religious institutions, including
an Episcopal Academy, a Jewish
day school and two synagogues.
BUT THE lawyers used the
issue of the "deceptive practices"
indirectly by questioning at the
hearing the credibility of the
Masch said. He added he believed
the group pulled out because of
the possibility of a protracted
and costly legal battle during
which aspects of their finances
would become public they
preferred to keep private.
Masch said that the issue had
"sensitized a great number of
people Christian as well as Jew
to the deceptive character of
Beth Yeshua and the unethical
nature of its attempts to seduce
and entrap Jewish young
Masch said the "congregation"
had been functioning in the area
for about five years and had
grown from 30 members to
between 150 and 200. He
estimated that about half of the
increased membership was made
up of Jews, particularly young
HE ALSO told the JTA that
Beth Yeshua is one of about 25
so-called messianic synagogues
affiliated with the Messianic
Jewish Alliance of America,
which has its headquarters in

From Death to Life
. Local Woman Visits Poland before Mission to Israel
JERUSALEM Although a
trip to Israel is always an
enriching experience, it
sometimes can take on special
qualities, particularly for a
person who visits Poland before
arriving at Ben-Gurion Airport
outside of Tel Aviv.
Eighty women participated on
this year's United Jewish Appeal
National Women's Leadership
Mission. Arrangements were
made for some of the women, who
came from 20 states, to spend
three days in Poland prior to
Israel. Ruthe Eppler of Palm
Beach, was one of them.
Giber Heads Campaign
At Poinciana Place
Daniel B. Giber, former teacher
and business executive, will head
up the 1980 campaign at Poin-
ciana Place. In accepting this
post. Giber stated that "someone
must take on the responsibility of
seeing that our overseas and local
obligations are met." He spoke of
his visit to Israel in 1971 and how
this increased and intensified his
awareness of the social problems
there and the continued need for
| American Jewish financial
Giber holds degrees from
Trinity College, Central Con-
necticut State College and the
University of Connecticut, all of
which prepared him for a
teaching career in the Hartford,
(Conn.I school system for 14
years. During this period, he was
active as a teacher and principal
in Hartford's religious schools.
His teaching tenure was in-
terrupted for a time for the
pursuit of a business career of
sales manager and then general
manager of an automobile
agency. However, he returned to
his first calling in the West
Hartford School System, where
he taught algebra and geometry
until his retirement.
Two Palm Beach women, Barbara Shulman, third from left, and
Ruth Eppler, fourth from left, recently participated in the UJA
National Women's Division Mission to Poland and Israel. Here
they are shown visiting a settlement town. Also attending from
Palm Beach but not shown was Jeanne Levy.
Giber has always been active in
Jewish and general communal
affairs as evidenced by his
participation in B'nai B'rith and
United Jewish appeal campaigns.
At Poinciana, he initiated a
discussion seminar "Topics of the
Day," and also teaches in-
termediate bridge. Giber is
optimistic regarding the 1980
campaign at Poinciana and feels
that it will be more productive
"Why did I go to Poland? I'm
not sure," Ruthe said. "I grew up
in a home where my parents were
the only ones in their families
who survived the Holocaust. I
thought maybe I would find
traces of their families. After
visiting the decimated Jewish
community in Poland, it was a
great feeling to be in Israel. My
whole perspective during the
Mission was altered."
ONCE IN Israel, Ruthe and
the other members were provided
with a better understanding of
Israel today the country and
its people. 'The group visited
development towns in the Galilee
and settlements in the Negev
Desert, and experts briefed them
on the cost of peace. Project
Renewal, and education and
youth development here.
Yamit, a town in the Northern
Sinai Desert, is a vivid example
of the cost of peace. Only a few
years ago scarcely anyone lived
in Yamit. Today it is Israel's
largest resort area. Talking to
people who will have to evacuate
the town by January 1982, when
the last phase of the Sinai pull-
back occurs, the group gained a
special feeling about the need for
resettling these people. Building
suitable homes and securing
alternative jobs for Yamit's
residents was of interest to the
"I feel very sad about the
settlers who came down to Yamit
when there was nothing and built
it up to what it is today," Ruthe
said. "Yet if this is the price of
real peace, it is worth it. UJA has
been very pertinent in every
aspect of Israeli life. We should
continue now to play an im-
portant role as the cost of peace
While Israel is concerned with
properly moving people out of
Yamit, it is equally concerned
about settling people in less
populated parts of the country,
such as the Galilee and the
Negev. Ruthe visited the
development town of Carmiel in
the Upper Galilee and a kibbutz
in the Negev.
AFTER VISITING these
areas, Ruthe said, "Settlement
should be a major goal of the
UJA. For many reasons, in-
cluding security, we need people
in these areas."
Project Renewal, an ambitious
$1.2 billion five-year program
introduced by Prime Minister
Begin one year ago, also
highlighted the Mission. Eliezer
Rafaeli, director of Project
Renewal for the Jewish Agency,
spoke to the group about
progress over the initial year and
about the Project's future.
Mission members, after listening
to Rafaeli, all said Project
Renewal should be given special
priority during the 1980 cam-
"I had ambivalence before
about the implementation of
Project Renewal, Ruthe said,
"but now I am very assured of its
success. The enthusiasm people
exude here only confirms my
confidence in the Project."
Ruthe is married to Heinz
Eppler, and the couple has three
children. The Epplers belong to
Temple Beth El, and Ruthe is
active in the Women's Division of
the Palm Beach Federation.

Blacks See Jews as Crafty'
By DAN PULCRANO
With LARRY GLASS
We wanted to know how
Blacks perceived Jews, so we
asked. There were five of us, four
of them. Helen, an Oakes College
sophomore who had grown up in
various parts of Los Angeles-
Watts, Lynwood, South Central
volunteered to start.
"The Jews are the ones who
own the grocery markets in our
neighborhood," she told us,
"They're the ones who raise the
prices sky-high, and we go in
there and buy the sh-t. That's
how I feel about Jews."
John, a Black senior, said, "I
was raised in the city, New York
City, Harlem, where there was
plenty of Jews. As Helen said,
most of the Jews were mer-
FROM NEW YORK, John
moved to Marin County where he
Sained another perspective. "But
ews seem to control most of the
things in the ghetto. And in
Marin County they were just
interwoven into all the other
white people that were doing
their things. They have money.
And you look at them as the
people that are on top."
"They're real stingy," in-
terjected Mohammed. a
sophomore sociology student and
a convert to Islam.
John had more to say: "Most
of your parents have money. I'm
generalizing, but usually it's the
case, say, six out of ten. How do
you deal with that, just knowing
that you're part of that whole
lineage? How do you deal with
people saying, 'Hey, you're a
Jew. You exploit. You have
money. You killed God. You did
this, you did that?"

K-12. Call Mrs. Burton
. A FEW OF us tried to
'respond, but there were no easy
answers. How did we come to
inherit such an indictment? What
must we do to defend ourselves?
We were hurt, slightly em-
barrassed most of all shocked.
We needed to know the answer to
just one question: Why?
Our inquiry began by talking
with Oakes College Provost, J.
Herman Blake. Dr. Blake is a
sociologist who has studied race
relations and is one of the
nation's leading black educators.
He encouraged us to proceed with
our research, warning us that we
would find anti-Semitism among
black students on campus.
"If you get them to talk
honestly, and listen, you'll get a
pure, blatant anti-Semitism with
no rationale to it. Absolutely no
rationale," Blake emphasized.
"Money grabbers, shylocks,
control of this, that and the
BLAKE WAS right. As we
scratched the surface of the
problem, we became quickly
aware of an undercurrent of
resentment toward Jews among a
significant number of Blacks we
spoke with. It was equally clear
that many Jews had an in-
complete, sometimes naive,
understanding of the Black
experience in America.
These animosities and
misperceptions have resulted in
some tragic confrontations
between Blacks and Jews. Recent
examples include the polarization
surrounding the Bakke case and
the violent incidents between
Blacks and Hasidic Jews in the
Crown Heights area of New York
City. These schisms are all the
more tragic when viewed in the
context of the history of Black-
A number of Jewish
organizations filed "friends of the
court" briefs on Bakke's behalf.
The position of the Jewish
community, though certainly not

a unanimous one, could be ex-
plained by a historically-rooted
fear of quotas, which had in the
past been used to exclude Jews
from professions and educational
opportunities, both in America
and in Europe. Nevertheless, this
position was viewed by
minorities as an attack upon the
limited degree of social progress
they had achieved.
PROVOST BLAKE feels that
the Bakke case has helped to
polarize Blacks and Jews. "You
see, it's the sort of situation
where Blacks and other
minorities have made very small
gains, then see those gains being
eroded," observed Blake.
"It's almost at the point where
I you can't express any point of
view which can be analyzed and
' discussed in some rational way.
You've got to take an ideological
stance; it's either A or B. It was
that sort of situation as far as
Bakke was concerned. There were
many Jewish groups who sup-
ported Bakke and were little
understood by people who don't
know Jewish history, and people
saw this as an ti-Affirmative
This is a change from the civil
rights days when Jews and
Blacks saw their destinies as
inextricably linked. Another
significant change is that Jews,
by and large, are no longer in-
volved in exploitative roles in
In a visual society, Black-
Jewish relations become a
fundamental issue of racial
distinction. Jews are white and
Blacks are Black. For Jews the
questions of assimilation has
become something of an ob-
sessive concern. For Blacks, the
issue has little relevance.
DURING ONE of our Black-
Jewish dialogues, one of us asked
a 27-year-old Black student
named Paula whether Blacks
would fear losing their cultural
traditions if they were to enter
the economic and social main-
stream as had many Jews. "For
Black people, we don't have that
problem of being sucked up into
the majority culture," she told
The Jewish students, however,
expressed discomfort with being
lumped together with the white,
Christian, "Anglo" majority with
which they had little in common
historically, culturally, or
religiously. Some put forth the
case that this culture was op-
pressive because it made Jews
ashamed of their identity.
Alan, a Stevenson sophomore,
said that maintaining a Jewish
identity in a Christian society

was "a very tough, in many ways
brave thing to do." He said that
he wore a yannulke around
campus for one day, and felt very
self-conscious. "People are
always questioning you. You're
an oddity. It's a kind of op-
pression.'' Alan continued. "I'm
personally looking into living in
Lenny, a junior Religious
Studies major from Oakes, pulled
out the Star of David which he
wore around his neck, though
always inside his shirt. Paula
picked up on the irony im-
mediately. "I think you made a
good point. Already you look like
the majority culture, but you
hide what sets you apart. How do
you want it both ways?"
Statistically, both Blacks and
Jews are demographic minorities.
The word "minority" connotes
different things, however, in-
cluding economic oppression,
which Jews do not generally face
in this country. For this reason,
many Blacks refuse to
acknowledge the minority status
DR. BLAKE cites two reasons
why this is so: "One is pure anti-
Semitism Another point is
there are Blacks who look at
Jewish people as white .
There's some who would argue
that they can have it both ways.
If they want to be a minority
they can. There are some Blacks
who would say that because you
have it both ways, you're not a
Black anti-Semitism appears
to stem from two sources. One is
the white Christian culture,
which is the origin of stereotype: ..
of the Jews that became part of
the black consciousness. Another
is a reaction to economic op-
pression in which Jews par-
ticipated in a small, though
highly visible way.
The stereotypes of Jews as
stingy businessmen of Christ-
killers voiced by some of the
Blacks we talked to could have
easily come from a Pole or an
Englishmen 100, 200 or even 500
GREG, a Black Religious
Studies major who grew up on
Oakland, had little contact with
Jews as a youngster. He gave a
good analysis of the origin of
anti-Semitic stereotypes, saying, ^
"Everything that I had everV
heard about Jews was that they
were crafty and were always
trying to get the upper hand. I
didn't know where that cairn
from. Then I read that in Europe,
the kings would forbid any kind
of transactions with interest
among Christians, but en-
couraged Jews to come in so that
when times got rough, they could
accuse the Jews of usury and
turn the wrath of the peasants
The idea that Jews are good
with money is not always entirely
negative. Lewanda, an Oakes
student whose mother lived with
Jews for five years, told us, "To
me, they make better use of their
money than any other ethnic
group. Jews exploit their money

Israel Bonds Fashion Show Dec. 19
Mme. Bea Alexander will be
the honored guest at the Annual
Fashion Show and Luncheon for
Israel Bonds, Wednesday, Dec.
19, at the Breakers Hotel in Palm
Long known as a human-
itarian, Mme. Alexander prefers
to do her good works quietly. She
has been associated with the
Womens League for Israel for
half a century and is a member of
its national board of governors.
She is one of the founders of the
League, as well as a member of
the board of Hebrew University
of Jerusalem. The League, which
is dedicated to the welfare of
young people in Israel, maintains
Y-style Homes in the principal
cities of Israel and has helped
more than 100,000 young women
to become useful, self-supporting
citizens of Israel.
"I have gained more from
Israel than Israel has gained
from me," said Mme. Alexander
in a modest disclaimer of praise
for her devoted service to Israel.
Joan Comay, wife of the former
Israel Ambassador to Canada,
the United Nations, and Great
Britain, will be the featured

most knowlegeable about recent
developments in the Middle East.
The affair is sponsored by the
Merchants Division of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
County on behalf of the 1980
Combined Jewish Appeal-Israel
Emergency Fund Campaign.
"The amount of support and
the degree of leadership
demonstrated by the merchants
of this community may very well
set the tempo in our division for
the next few years," says Murray
W. Sperber, chairman for the
event. "I am confident that the
spirit and leadership that were
the trademark of Jewish mer-
chants will be renewed in this
year of Jewish Renewal."
Serving with Sperber as co-
chairmen for the event are Elliott
Argintar, Jeffrey Kornhauser
and Neil Waltzer.
Reservations may be made by
calling Jay Epstein.

L eye exam
of the right
Remember all those "decisions, decisions" you had to make as part of
your last eye test? It probably wasn't too easy 10 decide which letters and
lines looked best on the eye chart.
Well, all that has changed in our office We now use a new "eye com-
puter", just like the one developed to test the vision of NASA
astronauts. This amazing computer makes the whole eye-testing pro-
cedure easier, faster, and much mere accurate.
You simply look into the computer through a small window. Then, in
just one second, our computer measures your eyes and prints out the
calculations of any "visual errors" it may find This computer data helps
us determine the best prescription for glasses or contact lenses which will
give you the sharpest vision possible.
And, if you wear contact lenses, we can verify that they are the correct
prescription, without even having to remove them.
Thus, our new "eye computer" makes your exam go smoother. It also
makes it very simple to examine little children, hard-of-hearing patients,
and others who have trouble communicating with the doctor.
For more information about our computerized eye exam. or to
schedule an appointment for you. or for someone in your
family. please call or visit our office soon.

Accept Mogen David Adorn Now
By RABBI WILLIAM H.
Secretary, Rabbinical Council
of Palm Beach County
A few weeks ago the Men's
Club and Sisterhood of Temple
Anshei Sholom presented a fully
equipped ambulance to the Red
Mogen David. It is indeed a most
praiseworthy and humanitarian
act and deserves acclaim by all,
Jew or Gentile. Yet, para-
doxically, this noble gesture
follows on another rejection by
the League of Red Cross Societies
for Mogen David Adom's ap-
plication for membership. The
International Red Cross would
not accept Israel's emergency
medical services (Mogen David
Adorn) because they use the Star
of David as their emblem rather
than the cross!
This has been the official
excuse since 1949, when the Red
Mogen David first made ap-
plication and was rejected. The
irony of all this is that the Red
Cross have recognized the Arab
Red Crescent symbol and also the
Red Lion and Sun, the Iranian
symbolic equivalent of the Red
The Jews have lived with the
Star of David in life and in death.
In Germany, Jews marched to
death camps with that symbol on
their arms. Where was the Red
Cross then? They were well aware
Editor's Note: The views
expressed by the rabbis are
strictly their own and in no way
reflect the views of the Jewish
Federation of Palm Beach
of the conditions in Germany at
that time. But, they were silent!
THE REFUSAL of the
International Red Cross to recog-
nize the Red Star of David means
that should an Israeli hospital
plane be flying injured to a
hospital base, it could be fired
upon by the enemy. An am-
bulance carrying wounded with
the Red Star of David could be
bombed off a roadway since it is
not recognized as a Red Cross
If the International Red Cross
had adopted a symbol devoid of
religious or political significance,
it certainly would have been
accepted by every nation. But,
the Cross carries with it a
religious meaning which is not
acceptable to nations in the
Middle East. Consequently, the
Arabs use the Crescent and the
Jews use the Star of David.
We feel our State Department
should get involved in the
Geneva decision. During the Yom
Kippur and 1967 Wars, whether
it was Jew or Arab who was
injured, the Mogen David Adorn
gave freely of precious blood
necessary for life. If an emer-
gency ever occurred in Europe,
the very nations that are ob-
jecting to Israel would be the
first to request Israeli blood and
Several years ago when there
was a massive earthquake in a
remote section of the world, the
first planeload of medical help
and supplies into the territory
came from Israel.
Since the Geneva conference
has decided to refuse Israel
recognition, Americans involved
with the Red Cross should make
their feelings known when the
time comes for contributions.
Annual Chanukah-Christmas Dilemma
By MORDECAI LEVOW
As a Jewish educator over the
years (and this year is no excep-
tion). I recall numerous requests
for Chanukah programs that
would be appropriate for in-
clusion in a "Holiday Program."
Translate that Chanukah
The dilemma is always how to
best respond to such program
requests. If we turn down the
request, we run the risk of ap-
pearing to be disinterested in
furthering brotherhood and good
ecumenical, inter-group relations.
If we accommodate the request,
we are perpetuating the miscon-
ception that Chanukah and
Christmas are equatable.
Permit me to share with you
briefly one educator's response to
1. It is clearly a violation of
separation of church and state to
encourage the observance of any
religious holidays in the public
schools. While Chanukah and
Christmas have both been in-
vested with non-religious over-
tones, they are both clearly and
unequivocally religious festivals
and have at their central core
2. Christmas is, along with
Easter, one of the two most sig-
nificant religious observances in
the calendar of Christiandom.
Chanukah. by contrast, is a
minor festival. It is certainly not
comparable in importance to the
High Holidays or the festivals of
Passover, Shavuoth and Suk-
koth. It is, certainly far less
imporant in Jewish theology than
the Sabbath. It is only the
calendar accident of its proximity

to Christmas that has made it
seem very important.
3. The inclusion of Chanukah
in a joint program with
Christmas, therefore, does
violence to the principle of
separation of church and state.
Further, it distorts the theo-
logical religious significance of
each of the holidays.
As a Jew, I object to these
distortions; as a Christian, I
would surely have difficulty
understanding the equation of a
really minor festival with one of
the two most important events in
I realize that there are many of
you out there who will disagree
with this position since per-
spectives on Jewish education are
intended to present a variety of
views. I would welcome your
responses to my point of view.
