alks United Nations (JTA)—The formalities of laying the basis for peace negotiations between Israel and Egypt and Jordan began here as Dr. Gunnar V. Jarring, the United Nations special Middle East envoy initiated his round of talks with Secretary General U Thant and his top aides. The Swedish diplomat also met with United States Secretary of State William P. Rogers for what a UN spokesman termed an "overview of the Middle East situation." A UN spokesman said the meeting between Mr. Rogers, Dr. Jarring, Mr. Thant and Undersecretary Dr. Ralph J. Bunche was at the request of the Secretary of State. Rumors had been rife during the day that Mr. Rogers felt his peace plan, rather than any proposal by the Big Four, should be the guideline for Dr. Jarring resuming his peace mission. Emerging from his meeting Mr. Rogers was asked if he resolved his differences with Mr. Thant as to whose instructions should guide the ambassador. The Secretary of State replied only that he had no differences with Mr. Thant over Ambassador Jarring. Until ^ the Swedish diplomat has taken his instructions

from Mr. Thant and his peace mission activities have been mandated by the Security Council. The role of the Big Four is to find a guidejine for reactivating the peace missionbut the"guideline has to first be approved by Mr. Thant as "positive." . • While Dr. Jarring is in New York he is also expected to meet with the ambassadors of the Big Four powers and those of Israel, Egypt and Jordan. UN spokesman said today that there is no "time table" for Dr. Jarring's stay in New York. One source noted that the duration of his stay here will "depend on what happens during his talks (here) and developments in the Middle East." But while he is here, the Swedish dip!*mate is expected to explore three areas concerning the next steps in the Mideast peace settlement: the size of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) to supervise the cease-fire; the duration of the cease-fire; and the location for the peace talks. Any one of these elements, observers here said, could stymie .actual peace negotiations for weeks, if not for months.

Rabbi Reports ¥iefncsmese Werf Pecce Despite Thieu . New York (JTA)—Rabbi Balfour Brickner, director of the Commission on Interfaith Activities of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations recently returned from a trip to Vietnam and reported that a "burgeoning peace movement" is "alive everywhere" in Vietnam and is supported by all ranks of the citizenry. A long time critic of American involvement in the Vietnamese war, Rabbi Brickner said President Thieu and Vice President Ky are well aware of the growing peace movement. "They declare that anyone calling for an immediate peace will be considered a friend of-the communists and all powers of the government and the law would be arraigned against such person," he said. « Rabbi Brickner declared that those involved In the peace movement are "as miiitantly anti-communist as they are anti-Thieu-Ky." Their desire is not so much a quick withdrawal of "American troops

Rabbi Brickner also reported that his group, joined by Australians, New Zealanders, and Dutchmen who also visited Saigon to investigate the Vietnamese peace movement, had visited Con Son Island with its infamous "tiger cages" and had participated in a student peace protest which was teargassed by the Saigon Security Police. "The incongruity of America providing tear gas to the Saigon police for use by that force to r e p r e s s such basic civil rights and freedom to assem-* ble and the r i g h t of free_ speech, was not. lost on the Saigon students," Rabbi Brickner stated. "They wonder how a government that invades an-' other country, in order to impose freedom and democracy, permits the repression of the very freedoms and democracies it is there to protect."

New York (JTA)—"The Russians are really not interested in anti-Israel propaganda as much as simple expansion into the entire area of the Middle East," said William Cole, the CBS News correspondent who was expelled from the Soviet Union June 29. Cole said t h a t ' policy pits the USSR directly against the United States in tha Mideast. ; He added that "the new friendliness between the Arabs . and the Russians" is responsible for the attempted repression of Soviet Jewry's back-toIsrael campaign." Mr. Cole, who was expelled f o r "activities incompatible with the status of a foreign journalist,." said he believed it wal for his "contacts with the dissident movement there."

THE PROPHETS By Emil G. Kraeling Rand !\leNully & Company

Tlte profound significance of the Hebrew prophets in human history is the theme of this fascinating book by one of our country's foremost Bible scholars. "Without the prophets," Dr. Kraeling points out in his Introduction, " t h e r e w o u l d have been no Judaism, no Jesus called the Christ, no a p o s t l e s and martyrs . . . There would have been no Crusades, no Reformation." From generation to generation the words of the prophets have been impressed on the popular mind. They have been studied, pondered, and quoted as direct mesages from the Lord by men speaking with divine authority. A knowledge of these elect spirits is essential to everyone who would understand our modern civilization. In this study of the prophets, Dr. . Kraeling has grouped them broadly into three historical eras In Jewish history; the prophets of the Assyrian Era; those ol the Babylonian Era; and those of the Persian and Greek eras. He vividly describes, in chronological order, the complicated historical and political setting in which New York (JTA)—The Chief the prophets carried on their Rabbi of Britain, Dr. Im- ministries.

Three million Russian Jews are threatened with cultural genocide. The Soviet Union's systematic policy of anti. Semitism denies tfiem the most essential human rights — to practice their religion, to study their cultural heritage, to fair educational and employment opportunities and to receive equal justice under their country's laws. . - In this disturbing book, Gunther Lawrence d o c u m e n t s these charges from case histories, legal documents, newspaper accounts, and his own first-hand experience. But he has mitten more than a moving, often 'infuriating account of the oppression of Soviet Jewry. THREE MILLION MORE? explains what national leaders and concerned individuals in the western world have done—and must continue to do to prevent the extinction of Judaism in Russia. Here is a call to action that no one who values freedom can^afford to ignore.

Jewish Identification Resurgence to Gome


Jews Urged to 'Stop Running1 Tel Aviv (JTA)—The executive director of the Crowh Heights Community Council of Brooklyn, N.Y. called upon American Jews to stop running but to continue building and strengthening their neighborhoods. David Farber, presently _honeymooning in Israel, said American Jewry and Israelis share the same problem: both wish to exist and live harmonious life together with their neighbors. This is not possible for Israel, he said, because of the Arab leaders who exploit their own people. In America, the problems are caused by those few who wish to use the phrase '.'discrimination and exploitation" for their own personal needs at the expense of their own people, Mr. Farber stated. He said Ameridfi Jews should emulate thftrt Israeli brethren. "On the one hand, we should endeavor to find the right formula for peaceful coexistence and harmony between the different kinds of people. On fee other hand, we should resist with all our determination any effort to encourage us to run away." Mr. Farber sent a cable to New York's Mayor John V. Lindsay expressing his dismay at the fire-bombing of his office in Crown Heights on July 20. No arrests have been made and the police investigation is continuing. ?

Colleges Urged to Boycott Biased Clubs New York — The American Jewish Committee has called on the presidents and chancellors of all major colleges and universities in the United States to use their influence to stop the sponsorship of college- or university functions at clubs that have exclusionary membership policies. In a letter to 600 administrators of four-year colleges with enrollments of more than 2,000 students, AJC President Philip E.

Jewish Group Files Lawsuit State New York (JTA)-The Committee for Public Education and R e l i g i o u s L i b e r t y (PEARL) and 13 individual plaintiffs filed suit this week against Governor Rockefeller, State C o m p t r o l l e r Arthur JLevit! and Slate Education Commissioner Ewald B. Nyqulst to prohibit the expenditure of public funds on parochial schools. At issue in the key test case is the constitutionality of Chapter 138 of the Laws of 1970 which apportions $28 million of . state funds to be paid to nonpublic schools for record-keeping purposes. The suit seeks "a temporary and permanent injunction against the allocation and use of the funds of the State of New York to finance the operations of schools controlled by religious organizations and organized for and engaged in the practice, propaga-

immediate and visible testimony of this failure of judgment. Of course, now that reality is staring the White House in the. face, and every daily intelligence s u m m a r y brings some new report of Russian vigilance and harrasment of the United States Sixth Fleet in the Mediterranean, President Nixon's senior advisers warn of the dangers of a "Soviet lake," the threat to Europe^ oil supplies, the pressures on moderate Arab governments, and major shifts in balance of power. All this is quite independent of the threat to the very integrity of Israel's existence. But it has come into clear, sharp focus because of the ArabIsraeli conflict. The question worth asking Is: Why did it take so long for American analysts to accept views' about Russian strategy which Israeli analysts had accurately outlined soon after the 1067 war? Quite a few commentators, this correspondent amongst t h e m , have emphasized the way concern with the Vietnam war and the Cambodian operations distracted the Nixon administration from the much the Middle East. But it is now clear that it goes deeper than that to some assumptions about the Soviet Union which are proving totally false. The White House has admitted it was taken by surprise when the Russians sent their pilots and missiles into Egypt. But the White House has also been surprised by the unwil-.

Tisha b'Av This year Tish b'Av falls on August 10 and 11, and once again Jews will gather in their sanctuaries to mourn the destruction of the ancient temples in 586 BCE by the Babylonians, and 70 CE by the Romans. Both of these calamities are considered to have occurred on precisely the 9th day of the month of Av. A day of mourning and fasting, Tisha b'Av gives .expression to the grief of Jews of all times and all places. We mourn the loss of the land, the destruction of the ancient temples; the centuries of homeless wandering; the persecution and intolerance to which our people have been subjected. And while we recall with sadness the tragic events in the history of our people, let us add a prayer of hope that history will _ notJje repealedLjhatihe dreams for peace in the Middle East iwill be realized; that Israel, the land and the people, will be spared from further destruction.

An Open Letter to the Jewish Press Committee Dear Besses: :

Before you start considering a permanent replacement for me as editor of the Jewish . Press, I think you should hear my explanations (and excuses) for some strange things which have appeared in the paper recently. Three weeks ago you, may have noticed (everyone else In the world did) the pictures of Marty Sbukert and Rabbi Krlpke with name lines switched. This is how it happened. Rabbi Kripke was eager to have attention called to the story since the Jewish Press was the only publicity used; to announce the meeting. Switching the identification of the pictures did the trick. Many more people than expected came to the meeting, just to see which one was the real Rabbi Kripke. •As a result, it was a good meeting. (Actually, I just didn't catch the mistake, but you must admit I came up with a pretty good excuse. It takes a good imagination to come up with a good excuse, and a good editor must have a good imagination. Please take that into consideration when you deliberate about my future.) The next week, the. Diamond's ad was run upside down. THAT WAS NOT A MISTAKE! It was done so at the request of the customer. I don't get any demerits for that one, please. Last week there was some trouble with pictures again. I don't know how, but someJboWjthe picture of Sally Fox ~ wounH "up'"In The sTory "about Nancy Stern's marriage, and ' Nancy Stem, in bridal gown, accompanied the story an"nouncing SaIIy~Fox's engagement. When tbe error was called to my attention, I did what any mature, intelligent, stable wom-

an would do under the circumstances. I cried. The next step Is to right the wrong, which I am doing by reprinting tbe pictures in- this column with the correct identification (I hope). Actually, it really shouldn't have caused too much confusion, cause all Jewish Press readers are bright enough to know that a girl doesn't announce her Engagement in a wedding gown; so they were able to figure out which girl went with which story. I hope you will take into consideration also that this is only the secoiid time I've goofed on bridal pictures in almost 6 years as editor; and that's a pretty good record. In both cases, proper apologies were made to those involved, and most were gracious,about the mistakes. But still, two mistakes In three weeks (not Diamond's) are cause for concern. The only excuse I can think of is that. I'm tired and really need that vacation we've been talking, about. So, dear bosses, I'll be gone for the next two weeks! I will be leaving the paper In the capable hands of Lisa Shapiro, a graduate of the Northwestern University School of Journalism where she was an honor student. I know Lisa will do a great Job; get all the pictures in the r i g h t places etc. (If you're (Unking of her as a permanent replacement, forget it. She's going to England In the fall and won't be available.) I guess that's all I have to say bosses. The next move is ~yours.*~iou "Can""replace~IR&"IL • you wish, but before you take any rash action I hope you will remember that In spite of my who believes in God and flies the flag on the fourth of July. The masses are bound to be on my side! Unless I hear from you to the c o n t r a r y , I'll be back in 2 weeks. Shalom!

The Problems Facing Jewish Prison Inmates By BEN GALLOB Jewish inmates in two maximum security prisons have expressed the conviction that the organized Jewish community fails to' give them the kind of help they need to stay out of prison after they have served their terms and many charge they are rejected by Jewish society because they have been convicts. These views emerged from reports by staff writers of two Jewish weeklies, who visited the prisons and spoke at length with many of the Jewish prisoners. They were Mary Shepper of the San Francisco Jewish Bulletin, who visited the San Quentin prison and Jerry Edelstein of the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent, who made a similar visit to the Graterford prison. Miss Shepper reported that there are about 30 Jewish inmates In San Quentin,'out of a total prison population of 3,500. they range in age from the mid-20s to early 40s. Their crimes and sentences vary and most are serving time for a second or third conviction. Mr. Edelstein reported 19 Jewish prisoners among the Graterford prison population of more than 1,600. The San Quentin congregation is named Beth Shalom and the chaplain is Rabbi Jacob Traub, the spiritual leader of Orthodox Congregation Adath Israel in San Francisco. Because the prison Is a state institution, its groups must be open to all prisoners. Accordingly, the congregation includes five blacks, one a convert to Judaism. Services are held every Thursday afternoon and on special occasions. There are two banquets annually with outside visitors—on Passover and on Rosh Hashanah. The prisoners usually meet with Rabbi Traub twice a week for informal discussions, generally dealing with current events, and particularly about Israel, Classes are offered in Hebrew, Jewish culture and aspects of the Bible. ' The Marin-Northgate Lodge of B'nai B'rith has worked with Agudat Achim (an organization for the San Quentin Jewish convicts) to establish a pro-lease program.- Unofficial- ly, Agudat Achim w o r k s to find jobs for Jewish prisoners ' scheduled for parole or re-

"Once you have a label here, it sticks with you," one of the Graterford prisoners told the reporter. "It's 'Jew this, Jew that'." The Jewish prisoners told the reporter that the prison officials were "prejudiced In every respect." They asserted that medical care was bad but if you're Jewish, it is worse." The. "good" prison jobs are hard to get "but harder for Jewish prisoners." They said that if a request to prison officials had anything to do with Judaism, the answer was almost automatically negative. The Graterford Jewish pris-

oners make many such complaints to Bernie Watman, a Philadelphia department stora owner who serves as president of the Jewish Community Chaplaincy Service, an affiliate of the Federation of Jew* ish Agencies. He told Mr. Edelstein that he agreed there was anti-Semitism in the prison but' not as much as the prisoners sajd there was. The 74-year* old merchant acts as advisor to the Jewish inmates and often serves as sponsor for in« mates seeking parole. Ho spends many hour helping inmates find jobs and housing after their release. He reported being told about a Jewish prisoner, with a known heart condition, who suffered a heart attack. Prison personnel refused to carry him to the p r i s o n hospital on a stretcher, forcing him to walk. When he arrived, according to the Exponent report, he was told the doctor was napping and could not be disturbed. "The prisoner died that afternoon."

told that the Jewish prisoners held the better prison jobs at San Quentin. One produces the prison's radio news show and Jewish prisoners serve as lab technicians and computer programmers.

and call him a "Congregational Board." I may run into a situation in the future where I am face to face with a decision which may seem to threaten my position and test my principles. But this is not different from the situation any decent rabbi would have to come to grips with in the civilian rabbinate. I have felt that I have freedom of my pulpit and I exercise that freedom. But I can no better predict the adverse reaction of my command than a civilian rabbi can predict the adverse reaction of a congregant. Have I really abandoned the more important needs of civilian Jewish congregations to enter some rather unnecessary and foolhardy "foreign legion" called the military? All I know is that I meet many Jews of all types and ideologies—many of them so young, and so far away from home, and often, so immature. And I preach, I administer, I counsel, I teach, I help. I would not venture to say that the Jew in Oshkosh or Montgomery doesn't need me as much, but neither "would I venture to say that the Apprentice Seaman or Third Class Seaman needs me any less. I know that a shortage of rabbis to serve the American scene, but I also know that there is a great shortage of rabbis in the chap-' laincy. You tell that Seaman Third Class that he needs me less than someone in Chicago. I won't. Sure, I wear the boards on my, shoulders, and I salute, and I am saluted. But, I am still a rabbi—I hope a good one, and so I hope I will remain. Only I will know—really know—wheth. er I am hypocritical or insensitive in what I do. But, that is true in whatever we do in life— Isn't it?

Editor's Note: Chaplain Frankel, now stationed with the U.S. Navy in Japan, was ordained a rabbi by the Hebrew Union CollegeJewish Institute of Religion. •


YOKOSUKA, Japan—I guess that I am a rather odd sort, a unique type—a rabbi who was not pressured, urged, or shoved into Uie service. I am neither a reluctant volunteer nor a seminary recruit. I chose to enter the chaplaincy. The periodicals, picture me as one of many , grasping tentacles of the military-industrial "octopus." I am portrayed as some sort of martinet goose-stepping to the tune of military bosses who crack Uie whip over my head; a quivering, shaking mass of protoplasm that trembles every time I run into a choice between right and wrong. Am I really all of these? Have I abandoned those who need me at home to seek distant pasftii-"s where I am not needed as much? Having had a year under my belt in the chaplaincy, what I have to say is based on good, solid experience. In the pursuit of my work as a chaplain, I preach, I administer, I counsel, I teach, I help. I have no feeling of some .ominous "Big Brother" breathing down my neck, recording my every move, observing whether I depart from the proper conduct fitting and becoming an officer and a gentleman. I am responsible to my immediate superior who may or who may not be a nice guy; who may or may not be the most competent fellow. But I had the same problem in the civilian rabbinate, only multiply the superior by 15 or 20 APARTMENT BLDG.

The ultra-religious group in Jerusalem has been waging a strong battle to keep buses from running in Jerusalem on Saturday. So far, apparently, they have succeeded. It is interesting in this connection that Mayor Lindsay of New York has taken a step towards "keeping Shabbos." It is on a limited scale thus far, confined to Fifth Ave. In a fifteen block area, from 42nd St. to 57th St. on Saturday all motor traffic is banned between the hours of 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The plan in its first try out proved so satisfactory that now other sections are clamoring that it be extended to their areas. Who knows? We may get the old Jewish Shabbos back again. Mayor Lindsay sometimes puts on a yarmulke, bat he is not an Orthodox Jew and not motivated by religious reasons. He simply, wants to establish a few cases of relief from the air pollu~. Schwartz tion and traffic congestion which choke the city. A few areas where peoplecan again breathe God's fresh air and can walk without hazard. The Lindsay plan offers relief from the car ills for only one day, but that is not to be despised. . Mayor Lindsay may have intiated something that may spread from coast to coast and the New York mayor, never a hidebound partisan, may find himself swept to the White House as the nominee of the "Keep Shabbos" party.

Atonement in Nurnberg By Chaplain AUen Blustcin

"STUDENT GOVERNORS" AT TECHNION—Unlike so many • universities today, Israeli universities are calm and peaceful. '• One reason is the voice of students in university-wide decisions. { At Technlon—Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, two student ; representatives are members of the Board of Governors, the • highest policy-making body of the Institute. They are Voram ; Auerbuch, newly-elected Chairman of the Technlon Students' ' Association, and Meir Metzer, outgoing Chairman (second and, third from right). They are seen here daring the recent annual ; meeting of the Board of Governors on the TcchnJon campus, ; conversing with Jacob Walter Ullmanu (left), President of the American Technioa Society, Mrs. UJlmaiin, and Professor Samuel Sldeman, Dean of Students.

This Week in History 40 YEARS AGO American-Jewish playwright-producer D a v i d Belasco included the.Jewish actresses Sarah Bernhardt and Ada Isaacs Menken among the 50 best performers ever. Russian-English composer Albert Coates included works by seven Jewish composers—Mendelssohn, Mahler, Schonberg, Bizet, Ravel, SaintSaens and Gershwin—among the 50 best musical works. The Labor Department, responding to complaints by the American Jewish Committee and the National Council of Jewish Women, removed racial classifications from naturalization applications. Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, commending a Catholic anti-pornography drive in New York, pledged "earnest and even enthusiastic support to any movement which will again make of the theater a place of enchantment and beauty rather than a cesspool."

It is of deep significance that, some 30 years after the Holocaust, four gravestones taken from the Nurnberg J e w i s h cemetery more than GOO years ago have been returned to the local Jewish community in a moving and poignant ceremony. The rites took place last month in the funeral chapel of Nurnberg's new .Jewish cemetery and relate to events in the years 1330 to 1340 C.E. During that period, the Jewish community of Nurnberg laid to their final rest four members of its congregation.The burials took place just prior to the outbreak of the dread Black Death which ravaged western Europe in 1348, when history records that the Jews of Nurnberg were falsely accused of poisoning the wells and of causing the pestilence. As a consequence, the entire Jewish community was expelled from Nurnberg and many Jews' moved into neighboring Furth, as well as to other parts of Germany. In 1352, according to the records, four gravestones were taken from the medieval Jewish cemetery and transferred to the St. Lorenz Church,, a magnificent cathedral in downtown Nurnberg. They were then cut into shapes enabling them to be used as part of a spiral staircase in the south dome of the church. The Hebrew lettering on the stones .was hidden from view, and they became a permanent fixture of the church. Some,600 years later, thanks to the efforts of church officials and CALAMITY , The teachers of old always taught us to remember that a purely Jewish calamity is no calamity at all; but a world calamity is a Jewish calamity as well.


Jewish communal representatives, the gravestones were removed from the cathedral and restored to the Jewish community of Nurnberg.' The gravestones themselves are incomplete. The Hebrew characters on the first one indicate that a woman whose name ended with siicba (either Eiisheba or Bathsheba perhaps) died in the year 1333. The second bears no name but is that of a male who passed away on a Friday which was the 7th. of Shevat in an unknown year. The third is that of a man who

died on a T h u r s d a y in the month of Iyar in the year 5090 (corresponding to the secular year 1330). The fourth is unidentifiable. _ The return of these stones to the Jewish community of Nurnberg demonstrates, -once again, the unassailable fact that, when people of good will come together in a spirit of friendship and cooperation, What emerge! is the. power to move mountains (or stones), so that the ideals of brotherhood and tranquility among men can reassert themselves.

ONE OF THE FOUR GRAVESTONES removed from the Nurnberg Jewish cemetery in 1352 and returned to the local Jewish community in May 1970 Is that of a man who died oil a Thursday In the month of Iynr.
