told more than 600
people attending the annual
dinner of the American Friends of
Haifa University at the Pierre
Hotel in New York. He noted
that Israel is in the midst of an
economic crisis and is being
governed by a coalition govern-
ment, and that various elements
in the Arab world are divided and
waning. He said that in this un-
certain situation in the Mideast,
no comprehensive solution is
likely to be achieved.
But Kissinger, who received an
Honorary Doctorate of Philo-
sophy from Haifa University at
the dinner, said that limited
agreements are important. As an
example, he cited the agreement
reached between Israel and Syria
on the Golan Heights after the
Yom Kippur War on troops dis-
engagement between the two
countries, an agreement that
Kissinger masterminded. He said
that agreement has been working
satisfactorily for the last 10
Kissinger also called for "pro-
longed and profound dialogue"
between Israel and the U.S. to
help reach a solution in the
Mideast. He said that he believed
that a strong America is essential
for the free world and for Israel.

Everybody told me so. But I
didn't believe it. How could a trip
to the land of Israel make me feel
different about my Judaism.
about myself? How could being
on different soil make me feel
something wonderful? I've
traveled a bit and never ex-
perienced anything mystical
about another place. I certainly
was skeptical.
Well, let me tell you, it is true.
Practically from the moment the
plane lands and perhaps even
before that, when everyone on the
plane begins to sing together at
the approach to the airport, you
know that something very special
is about to happen to you.
As you drive from Ben Gurion
airport up to the hills of Jerusa-
lem, something incredible
happens. You feel that you have
come home! You know that where
you are is where thousands of
years of Jewish history have
taken place, that this is the place
where our people began, where
they settled, where they
sacrificed, where they won and
lost battles, where they suffered
hardships and finally where they
returned after having been
scattered all over the world. And
you understand that we are all
We Are One
with all who have stood and
prayed here before. Even the
most secular Jew cannot fail to
You approach slowly, not
exactly sure what to do or how to
act. A strong force draws you
closer to the Wall. You observe
others who are already there
some in silent prayer, some
weeping, some praying aloud,
some whispering. Prayer at the
Wall is a very private thing, each
person entrenched in his or her
own thoughts, oblivious to
everyone else. Some stay only
seconds: others minutes, but all
who come to the Wall do pray,
even if only placing a prayer or
message in a crevice between the
ancient stones.
As you step away from the
area of the wall and gaze around,
you see before you the incredible
Judean hills and valleys. Every
area, every stone has a story to
tell. Wherever you turn, ancient
history greets your eyes. If you
are someone with very little sense
of history, as I am. you will find
yourself suddenly immersed in it
You cannot escape who you are
and where you are you are part
of it.
No matter where you travel ui
this country, whether in the
desert, now blooming with fruit,
trees, vegetables and flowers; to
a kibbuU; to Masada; to the
Dead Sea; to the settlements in
the North; to the Israeli army
camps, there is an incredible
feeling of belonging. As you talk
to people you have never met,
you feel a natural kinship with
them. When you are in the city,
particularly Jerusalem, you feel
comfortable and safe, knowing
that all around you there are
other Jews. If you sit at a con-
vention, or in a concert hall, all
around you are Jews and you
don't have to look over your
shoulder to see who is sitting
behind you and watch what you
are saying. You are home and you
are safe. It is a very special
feeling a feeling that we are

Abba Eban, on-camera host and narrator for

inside the Great Hall at Ellis Island in New
York Harbor during the filming of Episode 7
in the nine-part series scheduled for broad-
cast on Nov. 5 at 9 p.m.
Remarks By Abba Eban
Heritage: Civilization and the Jews
Abba Eban narrates a nine-part series on Public
Television entitled 'Heritage: Civilization and the Jews'
on Monday nights at 9p.m. In this article, Eban discusses
the spirit in which he first approached the project. It is
based on remarks he offered at a June press tour of the
Television Critics Association in Phoenix, Arix.
The story begins for me
some time in 1978, when, as
the result of the disas-
trously mistaken decision
by the Israeli electorate, I
became free of ministerial
office and suddenly in-
herited an unexpected
amount of leisure. I was
then honored by election to
the Institute for Advanced
Study at Princeton, and
there I spent three or four
months plunged in that
condition of subsidized
coma known as research.
What I was trying to research
was the problem of images in
contemporary politics. It seemed
to me that the Jewish story had
never been told in its full scope
and majesty; that it had in fact
been told in every medium:
literature, drama, music, opera
and sculpture, but it had not been
fully told on the mass medium of
television. Part of it has been
told. But the partial nature of
that exposure seemed to me to
make for distortion.

eloquently on television? Of
course the Holocaust. How could
one fail to present the most
violent moral convulsion in the
history of mankind? The Jew as
victim has been told. The Jew as
the source of every complaint, the
Jew, as you will see in our series,
as the cause of the bubonic
plague, the cause of industrial
disturbance, the cause of non-
industrial civilization this
extraordinary and mysterious
capacity to attract suffering, that
has been told.
The story of modern Israel has
been told, but usually in the
context of conflict and crisis; Is-
rael as a problem, not so much
Israel as a reality, a social,
cultural and human reality,
which are the terms in which we
shall talk about it here.
So the Jews as sufferers, and
the Jews as a "problem," but not
as the creators of original values,
not as a major contributor to the
reservoir of world thought, as a
generator of moral ideas and of
social understanding, of music
and medicine and the arts. All
this tends not to be told on
television, because it is the
sudden convulsive, abnormal
event that tends to seize at-
tention, and not the normal and
slower, gentler processes in which
history is told.
WHILE I WAS reflecting on
these things there came a
proposal from WNET, the public
television station in New York, to
interest myself in the idea of
being the on-screen host of a
program which would try to tell
this story in its full panoramic
breadth. When the idea was

broached, there was little reason
for thinking it would be fulfilled.
I remember being told that
there was some kind of a budget
of t48.000.76 for a feasibility
study. But as an Israeli, I waa
attracted by an enterprise which
seemed to have more fantasy
than reality, as most of our
national history exemplifies. And
so the story has gone on, until we
have reached this point.
We are now going to tell this
story as it needed to be told. It
has taken us to many countries
and to many geographical and
cultural contexts.
We began, as the story must
begin, with a constituted moment
in Jewish and, indeed, in civilized
history: Mount Sinai. I remem-
ber the first filming in 1979 on
that mountain, which the uuthor-
iut'.s tell us was the mountain
where Moses at the age of 80
climbed in order to receive a
divine revelation. I could only
admire the physical resilience of
my ancestor when I witnessed
the difficulties that we encount-
ered. I remember saying to the
camera crew, "Let's get out of
here before we get another Ten
Commandments." Which
reminds me of the Israeli story
about the decalogue.
MOSES COMES down from
the mountain and says that there
are 20 commandments, and the
Israelites, with their usual
querulous irritability, say "What
the hell can we do with 20 com-
mandments, don't do this and
don't do that and don't do the
other? We've got to get it re-
vised." He went back up the
mountain another 40 days and 40
nights and came down and said,
" I have good news and bad news.
The good news is that we've cut
it down to 10. The bad news is
that the bit against adultery is
still in."
So that's our first experience,
the decalogue in the grandiose
scenery of Egypt, and the mys-
tery of this small struggling
people, without temples and
without monuments, springing
up between these two super-
powers, Mesopotamia and
Egypt, and generating a vision of
the world which has never been

of the kings and the prophets,

Across to Venice, where the
mercantile tradition was born,

connections as a way of tran-
scending boundaries, so as to
create a European economy

Amsterdam, the new Jeru-
salem, where Jews fled the perse-
cution of the Inquisition. Then
the story of Spinoza and the
origin of the Sephardic Jews.
And later, of course, the Holo-
caust, and Anne Frank.

cially, of course, the terrible

we did in Dachau, that the crew

she did, if we would have applied
our energy and our will. So my
feeling is, I haven't done enough.
But just the same, I've made an
effort. As far as material
achievement, I achieved more
than I ever expected. I never
expected to get much recognition
or to be known in the world.
IH: You often write about
bachelors who have many affairs.
What are your thoughts on
IBS: I will teD you. You cannot
really write any novel about
people who are married and live
peacefully one with the other. It
is not a topic for literature
because if everything is all right,
why write about it? So when I
write about love, the protagonist
is either a bachelor or a divorced
man or a widower. He cannot be a
happily married man, because
then there would be no story.
IH: Do you have any words to
say about marriage in general?
You have been married for 44
years. Did having a wife help you
in your work?
IBS: Yes, it helped me in a
way. It's not so important having
a wife, but having a home, an
address, that's important. A
person who moves every four
weeks from one furnished room to
another, as I did before I married,
could not have really stayed with
his work. Many negative things
could have happened which
would have kept me away from
my writing. At least two years
before I got married, I felt that it
was time for me to have a home.
It is true that after having a
home, I still behaved for years,
and I still do, like a man who
lives in furnished rooms. I mean I
try to steal some of my
bachelorhood pleasures. But still,
home is important. I would say it
is important for everybody,
writer or shoemaker.
IH: Your wife comes from a
German-Jewish background and
you are a Polish Jew. She doesn't
speak Yiddish. How did this
affect you initially?
IBS: In a way, it was not good
for me. It would have been better
if she could apeak Yiddish. On
the other hand, she did not in-
terfere with me. For years we
lived together and I told her that
I waa a writer. She only had to
believe me nothing had been
translated, So to say, she gave
me credit. And this is the way we
lived and I grew accustomed to
it. She minds her business and I
mind mine. She does not tell me
how to write and she does not
quarrel with my critics. She is, in
a way, both familiar and a
stranger and it fits my kind of
IH: Many of your friends,
including the Yiddish writer
Sokolovitch, went to Israel early
in the game. Were they satisfied
with what they found?
IBS: They were disappointed.
When they came to Israel in
those years, the majority of the
people, even the leaders, were all
against Yiddish. They called it all
kinds of names the language of
the galut, jargon. And of course,
there were not many Yiddish

Sokolovitch was happy. I believe

IH: Do you feel that the Jew-
ish culture will thrive in Israel
more than it will in the Diaspora?
IBS: If it will not prosper in
Israel, it will prosper nowhere.
After all, they teach Hebrew, the
Bible, the Talmud, in the
universities. My worry is about
Yiddish. But the relationship to
Yiddish has changed in a positive
way. In Israel, they don't feel
anymore that Yiddish is in
competition with Hebrew.
Because of this, the opposition
towards Yiddish is less. But I
would say that they are not too
lenient. All kinds of foreign
newspapers get subsidies, but the
Yiddish newspaper never gets
any, because they say it's neither
Jewish nor foreign. In other
words, we are stepchidlren there.
But listen, you get accustomed to
the situation. Since the Jew has
been a stepchild for 2,000 years
all over the world, why not be a
stepchild in your own country,
IH: In 1943 you wrote an essay
about Yiddish literature in
Poland in which you spoke of the
tremendous idiomatic wealth
that the Yiddish language had as
well as some of its liabilities.
IBS: It is immensely rich in
idioms which describe human
character. It is immensely poor in
precise scientific language.
IH: Waht are you working on
IBS: I am writing something
which I call Dor Veyg Ahtym
(The Way Home), where I
describe a man who went through
the Holocaust somewhere in a
dark room in Warsaw. Later he
comes to New York. I myself
don't know the novel's worth, but
I keep on writing it.

IH: Do you still attach great
importance to being a storyteller,
or do you feel now that you want
to leave a message for the world?
IBS: I have no message at all.
Of course, there are little
messages hidden here and there
in my hooka. I keep on saying
that the modern Jew, the man
who does not believe in the higher
powers, who is only a completely
wordly person, is more lost than
our parents and grandparents
were. I am just expressing a
conviction in many variations.
But if I have a message in my
heart I do have messages I
may still bring them out in the
future if God gives me strength
to do it.
IH: I hope so. Now, tell me, do
you feel that women have
changed any over the years since
you were a young man?
IBS: Yes, very much. When I
was a boy, the average Jewish
girl believed in one God and one
husband. And today, the modem
Jewish woman is as modern and
as wordly and sometimes even
more so than her gentile
counterparts. So I would say that
we have, in a way, lost what we
call the taharas hamishpacha
(family purity). It's not there
anymore. The so-called Jewish
princess not only wants better
clothes and trips and places to
study, but she's also interested in
love-making she doesn't
believe really in the institution of
marriage. The change is
tremendous and far from being
positive, good for us. You can
state the fact, but you cannot
really change it. You cannot take
a girl who has studied at Harvard
and has read all the modern
novels and seen all the shows and
make her like my mother. You
cannot do it.
IH: From your perspective of
having attained 80 years and a
lot of wisdom, what advice would
you give to the younger
IBS: I agree about, the 80
years, but not about a lot of
wisdom. Although I myself don't
keep it 100 percent, there is a
biblical message in the Book of
Exodus and this is the Ten
Commandments. If you keep ten
commandments even if you
keep nine you're on the right
IH: What about eight?
IBS: If you keetp eight, then
you're already in trouble. If you
loll and steal, the others are not
worth a penny, so better keep at
least nine.
IH: Do you believe in the
higher powers?
IBS: I believe that there are
many secrets of which we have no
inkling, truths which we would
consider completely impossible.
Just as we did not know 300
years ago about DNA and
microbes and many other things.
There are many secrets behind
our backs, almost even before our
eyes, which we don't see. I'm sure
that the man who will live here |
1,000 years from now will con-
sider us so ignorant that he will
not believe that we could have
lived in such ignorance for so
long a time.

Cast History
of the week
Mrs. A. called Jewish Family
Service with marital problem.
This therapists saw Mrs. A. for
sessions. Mrs. A., 25 years old,
and married three years, felt that
Mr. A. was not willing to put
forth effort into maintaining their
marriage. Mrs. A. complained her
husband called her names, never
gave her compliments, always
made her feel worthless by telling
her everything she did. was
wrong and giving her no feeling
of affection of any kind.
Initially, the therapist wanted
Mr. A. to come in for an inter-
view. He agreed to come in
hoping to help wife get over her
problems. The therapist explored
with Mr. and Mrs. A. their feel-
ings about their marriage and in
what way they could change. Mr.
A. did not see how he could

change and felt his wife was the
sole problem. Mr. A. saw that his
marriage and relationship with
his wife was deteriorating. It was
later that Mrs. A. found out that
he had a girlfriend.
In therapy, therapist helped
Mrs. A. set new goals for herself.
She needed a sense of self-esteem
and this meant an overview of her
strengths. Together, Mrs. A. and
the therapist practiced assertive
communication skills through
role playing. We were able to take
a look at how she set herself up to
feel emotionally abused. She
never spoke up in defense of her-
self. She passively allowed
others, especially, Mr. A. to call
her names and create in her a
feeling of inadequacy.
Mrs. A. began to date and saw
herself emerging. She liked her-
self and was proud of what she
was becoming, a person with a
sense of self worth. Almost a year
later, divorced, and on her own,
she dates frequently, and feels
very special. She has strengths,
and more importantly she be-
lieves in herself.

The World Zionist Organi-

determined process of analysis
and soul-searching that will
result in a "revolutionary
restructuring of the WZO,
designed to make it more

"We recognize that the WZO
as presently consitutes is
inadequate indeed obsolete

In order to transform the
WZO, it has enlisted foremost
Jewish thinkers and experts

Zionist leaders into regional
Think Tank Committees in the
United States, Latin America,

Large Birds to Get Protection
Israel Electric Corporation is

Thirteen birds described
variously as vultures or eagles
were electrocuted recently when
they rested on high tension lines
after bathing in nearby pools.
During the past three years some
40 vultures have been elec-

classes for over 300 students on
Sundays and weekday after-
A new program has been

enroll. Using music and "acting
out," the children are taught
stories from the Bible and Jewish
traditions. This is the only such
program of its kind in Broward

A: When a doctor "accepts
assignment." he accepts 80
percent of what Medicare allows
on a particular service. He cannot
charge a patient for more than 20
percent reminder of the allowed
charges. Ask your friends if they
know any doctors who "take
assignment." Better yet. call
your nearest Social Security
Office or a library and ask if they
carry a current list of doctors
accepting assignments. However,
even when you select a doctor
from this list, make sure that he

reimburse my surgeon. But do
they pay for anesthesia services.'
If so, how does' Medicare figure
reimbursement to an anesthesio-
logist ?
A: Whether Medicare will pay
for anesthesia services or not
depends on a type of surgery.

can be modified, depending on
the length of time and-or com-

can approve payment to a patient
