AJ Congress Raps Bar Assoc. For Support of Racial Quotas NEW YORK, (JTA) - The American Jewish Congress took sharp issue last week with a report by the civil rights committee of the New York Bar Association supporting voluntary racial quotas by employers, college admissions officers and bousing developers. Voicing "profound concern" over the report "emanating from such a prestigious ' source," the AJCongress contended that the quota plan would be counter-productive because it would turn private citizens into "racial Robin Hoods" engaged "In the same kind of discrimination against innocent individuals which' created the situation they seek to remedy." The Bar Association's report declared that "voluntary programs using quotas for ameliorative purpoMS to correct the effects Of subsUnlial prior discrimination are legally permiulble in such areas as empktymmt, education and housing." The AJCongress' reply

described the report as support for "do-it-yourself quotas — that is quotas instituted for private parties or institutions on their own initiative and not as part of a remedial order impoaed by a

court or administrative agency." It called the Bar Association recommendations an "ill conceived proposal, justified neither by the cases nor by wise demands of social policy."

'Book of the Dead' Distributed in Israel TEL AVIV, (JTA) — Israelis who are used to queing up for every thing from bus tickets to a concert, stood in long, mostly silent lines last week ouUide post offices all over the counU7 waiting to receive a booklet, just published, that contains the names df the more than 2S0O Israeli soldiers, sailors and airmen who died in the Yom Kippur War. It is called "The Book of the Dead" Knesset Speaker Israel Yesheyahu referred to it as "the book of pain, heroism and dedication" — and Is the first complete list of Israel's war dead. Although the number of casualties was published some time ago, the dimensions of the tragedy suffered by so many Israelis families was brought home more forcefully by the publication of the actual names. Grownups and school children wept openly as they approached tables draped In black to be handed (he bookleU by members of the Aasoclation of Bereaved Parent*. Wilhin one hour the booUeU were all distributed and tens o( thouaaods were still lining up to get the booklet.

Dayan, Kissinger to Discuss Disengagement with Syria JERUSALEM, (JTA) - The Cabinet has selected Defense Minister Moshe Dayan to go to Washington for talks with Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger on a disengagement with Syria. The announcement said,"The Cabinet approved the trip of the Defense Minister for talks with the Secretary of Slate on the issue of separation of forces on the Syrian front." No date was set for his departure. Cabinet Secretary Michael Amon said the timing of his trip remained to be decided between Washington and Jerusalem. Some officials here bdlcated that Dayan might not go to Waihlngton until Klitlnger returns from his visit to Moscow later this

month. Sources here said that Dayan would bring to Kisahiger Israel's proposals for troop separation in the Syrian territory Israel captured durbig the Yom Kippur War. They said that Israel will insist on full reciprocity of concessions by both sides and would favor a buffer zone manned by the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) similar to the one separating the two sides on the Egyptian front. ••rsei is reported to have rejected absolutely a Syrian demand that dhengagement hiclude Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights town of Kuneitra captured by Israel In the 1967 Six-Day War.

Omahan Finds Israel In Urgent Need of Cash Omaha — Leo Meyerson returned to Omaha from Israel last week with an urgent plea "that all t>hilanthropies pledges be paid as quickly as possible. The economic situation in Israel is critical," Meyerson said, "with defense costs eating up B4 cents out of every Israeli tax dollar." Mr. Meyerson was among the 4S Americans participating in a UJA Factfinding Mission in Israel which focused on the needs for the immediate flow of cash. During the intense S day visit, the American leaders met with top government and military officials who spoke of the pressing needs in Israel as the result of the Yom Kippur War. Moshe RIvlin, Director General of the Jewish Agency explained that "the need for

cash is urgent, primarily for relief from the pressures of post-war immigrant absortion and welfare aid to Israeli citizens." According to Rivlin over 15,000 immigrants have come to Israel since the Yom Kippur War. 40,(X)0 new immigrants are expected this year. This has necessitated a tremendous increase in the normally heavy absorption budget. Rivlin said, "The entire functioning of many human needs programs in Israel depend on the cash flow from American Jewry . " Explaining the soaring cost of living as a result of the war, Rivlin noted that the cash received by Israel now will do far more than it will in six months from now. Mr. Meyerson said that a national UJA effort is being directed for the collection

$250,000,000 by June 30. He stressed that this was not a campaign for additional funds, but an effort to redeem pledges for critically needed cash. Meyerson said that the goal for Omaha in this Cash Collection effort is $1,000,000 by June 30. He noted that collections of gifts made in the record 1974 irampaign in Omaha which to-date stands at $3,084,242 has also been outstanding In that nearly half the pledges have already been paid. "We are appealing to those who have not yet paid their 1974 pledges, as well as those who have not completed payment of prior year pledges. The need for cash in Israel is urgent, and as many pledges as possible must be converted to cash before June 30.

JDC Ships 575,000 lbs. of Passover Items Overseas The Joint Distribution Committee has arranged for the shipment of more than 10,000 matzo packages to Jews in the Soviet Union in time for Passover, it was reported this week by Edward Ginsberg, JDC Chairman. In addition, the JDC has shipped $75,000 pounds of matzos and matzo meal and 41,200 bottles of wine to Jewish communities in Europe and North Africa, he said. "Passover assistance has always been an integral part of JDC's traditional program ol aid to cultural and religious institutions," Mr. Ginsberg said. "Our package program to Jews in the Soviet Union tabes on added urgency this year in the light of developments there. The Pasaover

supplies will not only help our p«»l>le in distant lands observe the Passover holiday in dignity, they will also remind them that we are with them in spirit." The bulk of the Paasover supplies, 442,000 lbs of matzos and matzo meal and 40,000 bottles of sacramental wine, was shipped to Rumania, Mr Ginsberg said. Other countries in Europe which received Passover supplies were Portugal, Spain, Yugoslavia, lUly and Greece. In North Africa Pasaover shipments went to Tunisia and to Melilla in Spanish Morocco.

WASHINGTON, (JTA) Sixteen leaders of American Jewish Organizations met with Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger in his office last week for 90 minutes in what was officially described later by the participants as "an offthe-record" discussion. A short statement, drafted immediately after the meeting by three of the participants said: "The meeting dealt with the status of Syrian negotiations, continued economic and military support to Israel and other matters of Importance to the Jewish community." Rabbi larael Miller, chairman of the Conference of Presidents of MajerAmerican Jewish Organizations, and Max Fisher, chairman of the

Board of Governors of the Jewish Agency, described the meeting as friendly, positive, comprehensive and frank. There was a full exchange of information and views. "The meeting was a follow-up to a similar discussion held in the Secretary's office at the end of December" the statement said. "The Secretary agreed that it would be desirable to meet again in the near future." The drafters of the statement were Rabbi Miller, Fisher, and Leonard Garment, assistant to the President who represented the White House and was one of the three government officials attending the meeting. The others were Kissinger and Under-Secretary of State

for PoliUcal Affairs Joseph J. Siaco. None of those attending would discuss any phase of the iecsion and referred to ttie statement for news of the meeting. Ttie issues of Soviet Jewish emigration and the JacksonMills-Vanik legialation, which Kissinger strongly opposed recently before the Senate Finance Committee, were conspicuously absent from the statement. It also was noted the National Conference on Soviet Jewry wa* not represented at the meeting. However, while the Soviet emigration issue was not mentioned in the statement it may have been included in the discussion in "other matter*" which the statement reported.

One of the hazards of a newpaper job is that the constant exposure to bad news can reinilt in a kind of numbness — an unconscious desregard for the people who make the news. I've become so accustomed to stories about the plight of Soviet Jewry that in recent weeks I realized, I've thought only of the numbers rather than the people. The realization hit me this week during a brief visit with Mrs. Leonard Goldstein. Shirley has been deeply interested in Soviet Jewry for several years, and during a visit (p Russia last December made contact with a number of Jewish activists, including the world famous physicist. Dr. Benjamin Levichx, whose son Yevgeny, was picked up by the Soviet Police last May and sent to Siberia. Shirley shared with me some correspondence she had received from Dr. Levich and some of the other people she met. The following excerpts are from those letters. FrMn Dr. Lcvtck: "It was good indeed to have received your very nice letter. I always remember our short meeting with a great pleasure. Our life has not been lately changed in

conservative synagogue. The Congregation of Chevra B'nai Israel was formally incorporated in ItlO. Trustees were listed as S. RavHz, H. Preldel, and M. Seiner. Officers were Jacob KaUeman, M.

When Morris Levy died in 1923 it was said that he was "one of the richest men in Omaha" and^that "no individual or charitable organization applying to him for aid went away empty handed." Morris Levy was a member of the Omaha School Board and was very active in the affairs of the Jewish community.

March, 1974, marks the centennial of the birth of Stephen Samuel Wise. Rabbi, orator, communal leader, Zionist spokesman, Seminary founder-president, Stephen Wise was by any standard one of the most dynamic religious leaders America hu ever known. Everything that Wise did is memorable, l>ut perhaps nothing that he accomplished for American Jewish life was more memorable or more important than a letter he published in 190« "on the freedom of the Jewish pulpit." Wise was already one of America's outstanding young rabbis in December, 1905, when New York City's eminent Congregation EmanuEl approached him about election to its pulpit. At the time Wise was serving a congregation in Portland, Oregon. He was interested in returning to New York, but wanted assurances that his pulpit was "not to be muzzled." He was told, however, that "the pulpit should always be subject to and under the

you gave me. 1 read and reread and 1 know it by heart. It is as if you are just the same people as we are and at the same time, people from another world, interesting and mysterious . . . There is nothing I can tell ya6 abofit myself. The situatio(i hasn't changed in any wa^. I just wail annd hope and every minute I dream ... I wotild be happy to hear your vok:e, but now I have no telephone number where you could call to because all the telephones of our friends don't work . . . My letter must be clumsy, but I am overfilled with feelings. I wish I eould speak to you again. If you have the Ume and spirit, please write to me. I'd love to get a letter from you." As I read the letters, I was shocked by how unemotional I had been reading new about Soviet Jews. The (aceleu thousands in the news stories became individuals again with hopes and dreams like mine; with fears and terrors which I, thank goodness, have been spared. Things were put back into perspective for me. The plea to help Soviet Jews was moved from a standard request for funds, to an image of young girl reading a book from America; exchanging letters with a Jewish American friend who cared about her plight. Soviet Jews are people in - trouble, countng on us to care and to continue our efforts in behalf of their freedom. Perhaps all of us need to stop and put individuals into the faceless numbers we read about in news stories.

control of the board of trustees." Wise responded by telling the New York congregation flatly that "no self-respecting minister of religion .. . could consider a call" to such a pulpit. Not content with merely rejecting the preferred pulpit, Wise went on to write a lengthy exposition of his views. It was published at Portland, Oregon, In 1906 as Ai Ope* Letter To The Members Of Temple EmamiEl ol New York an the Freedom af the Jewish Pulpit. Nothing, Wise decUred, was a greater disservice to religion than "that attitude of the pulpit which never provokes dissent because it is cautious rather than courageous, peace-loving rather than prophetic, timeserving rather than rightserving." What was the rabbi's proper role? Wise asked. Was he to speak for or to the congregation? To Wise, the answer was clear: "The chief office of the minister ... is not to represent the views of the congregation, but to proclaim the truth as he sees it." The rabbi. Wise insisted, is "not the message bearer of the congregation, but the bearer of a message to the congregation." That the rabbi might "sometimes stumble into error" was no argument against the freedom of the pulpit, since "his views are not supposed to have a bhiding force upon the congregation." The rabbi had to be free. Wise asserted — free to quicken ';the minds of his hearers by the vitality and independence of his utterances ... A free pulpit, worthily filled, must command respect and influence; a pulpit that Is not free, howsoever Tilled, is sure to be without potency and honor" ahd "can never powerfully plead for truth and righteousness.."

QUESTION: Why is it rarely that wr (re a Jewish wedding performed en a Friday? ANSWER: The Talmud asks that Jewish weddings not be held on Friday. One reason given is that it might lead to a violation of the Sabbath. Another reason given is that It might detract from the necessary honor Jews are required to pay to the Sabbath.

letters t€> tliof-'clitc^r ANSWERS WANTED Previously, in the Press, I noted my disappointment that our Rabbis had voted against a proposal for a joint use educational building adJohilng the new Center. In a recent issue of the "Temple Tidings," Rabbi Brooks chose to interpret my remarks as an insult to the Rabbinate. I sincerely regret that he so misconstrued my letter. The particular wording in my letter meant only that sometimes synagogues appear to place more emphasis on self perpetuation than on function and in particular education, find it difficult to cooperate. Attitudes appropriate to the business world are not necessarily appropriate to education. It is my understanding that both Beth El Synagogue and Beth Israel Synagogue are contemplating building a new school in the western part of our city. A proposal was made to all that a single building, to be used ladependently by each Syaagogoe, be constructed at the new Center site for the following reasons: 1. One facility is cheaper to build than two separate buiUhigs. 2. The cost of maintenance for one buiUing is more economical. 3. The new Center has many advantageous educational facilities that would not have to be duplicated in separate bulMings — such as library, auditorium, lounges, etc. A proposal to study the feasibility of this was rejected by the Education Committee by a vote of six to five. It is my understanding the Temple Synagogue school facilities are adequate at this time; therefore, there was no need for them to accept or

reject this proposal. However, three of the six votes against the proposal were cast by Temple participants. Now I would like to h^r the reasons why the other three voted against it. In any event, the real issue is not my choice of words, but the particular reasons why the Rabbis voted against this proposal. I think the public shoidd know, why the Rabbis felt tills proposal unfeasible. And in this regard, I would be more interested in hearing from the Rabbis from Beth El and Beth Israel, inasmuch as those synagogues would have been active participants in the joint structure. It is my understanding (hat the Temple would not have participated in that It deemed iu present facilities adequate for the foreseeable future. Perhaps, after the Jewish community of Omaha has heard all the pros and cons, we can better decide how and where we wish to spend our money. Dorothy C.

Israeli Visitors Find Midwest Jewish Teens Knowledgeable Onuha — "How does the kibbutz tackle the generation gap?" "Is the existance of the kibbutz essential to life in Israel today?" "How does an urban Israeli view kibbutizim?" "Why do some Israelis leave to live in the USA?" These were some of the questions which Dafna Popovici and Joseph Lichtenstein found themselves answering this week in Omaha. The two Israeli high schoolers are on a 7 week tour of the United States. They are participating in a program jointly sponsored by the American Zionist Organization and the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs whkh will bring 60 Israeli' teenagers to speak to youth all over the United States. Dafna and JoasI will have been to Chicago, Lincoln, Omaha, Sioux City and Des Moines by the time they leave the United States. The youthful ambassadors are speaking to junior and senior high scWl groups and Jewish youth groups as well as some adult organizations. In Chicago, they spoke at a predominantly Black school and at Central High School, in Omaha, to a minority studies clau. "We have not met any proArab groups," Dafna said, "of course, we were only invited to places where we would be received sympathetically. But we found the kids mostly very unknowledgable about Israel. "They were interested in our lives, our food, music and entertainment. It was a revelation to some that people could live and feel the same way as they did in another part of., the world. After a while, the conversations wouU come round to things

like army service and our relations to the Arabs." It was another story when they spoke about the Jewish youth Ihey had met in the mid-west. "They know a lot about Israel and oar problems, and their quettiont have been good and interesting. We especially enjoy meeting Jewish teenagers," Jossi Said. Did the two Israelis feel that they had accomplished what they had set out to do?

"Yes," they both said, "we do'. Perhaps some day, when they are at college and come across the very strong Arab propaganda prevalent on Campuses, these kids will remember that they once met two Israelis who were not Imperialistic or militaristic!" Dafna added that this was a wonderful experience for the Israelis. "It is good to see the outside and to meet the people. It also helps us appreciate our own values."

receives the Jewish Press is apparent from our readers questions and a recent action of the Federation. We contacted Dr. Ferman who gave us the following information: On November 23, 1973, at a meeting of the Executive Committee, this resolution was passed. "Be it resolved that contributors, members of the Federation, Newcomers, a select group of Metro l/eadera and college students away from Des Moines receive subscriptions to the Jewish Press." It may be noted that a member of the Federation is defined as one who contributes $1 or more. We also learned that each subscription costs our Federation r.SO, and that $<,400 00 has been budgeted for this purpose. Recognizing the importance of reaching and including every member of our Jewish Community, The Federation, in the March 1st edition of the Press ran the following:

Clive Barnes, theater and dance critic of the New York Times and a member of the Committee for Valery and

Galina Panov, said that for two years Panov has been "persecuted, harassed and Jailed." Panov. he contimied, is forced to practice his dancing in his small two-room apartment. "This is inhumanity," Barnes said, adding that Panov is like "a man in a zoo." Barnes said he had appealed to the Nixon Administration on behalf of Panov but that there was "no response because of the policy of detente." Sen. Henry M. Jackson (0. Wash.), the sponsor of the Jackson amendment, sent a statement applauding the

gathering and called for continued efforts to help "this brave couple." Noting that the Soviet Union continues to deny the Panovs their fundamental right "to emigrate to a nation which would welcome them." Meanwhile, in Washington, a plea to the Soviet government to allow Valery and Galina Panov to eihigrate to Israel was issued by eight Congresswomen led by Elizabeth Holtzman (D.NY). The plea. In the form of a joint letter to Soviet Communist Party Secretary Leonid E. Brezhnev, stated that "as .

members of the U.S. Congress and as women we urge the Soviet Government to grant immediate permission to Galina Panov to emigrate with her husband." Valery Panov has been told that he may leave the USSR but that Galina, who is not Jewish, cannot accompany him. The Congresswomen'• letter stated: "We deplore th^s effort by the Soviet government to separate the Panov family. We must protest the unjust decision that a husband must leave the country and his wife must remain."

Hadassah Holds Vigil for Sylva New York, . . . The Geneva Conventions protect prisoners of war. What body or law protects Sylva Zalmanson from the brutality of her own government? Imprisoned by the Soviet Union in 1970 because she wants to live as a Jew in Israel, Sylva — with a history of tuberculosis and rheumatic fever — is wasting away in a Strict Ragima Labor Camp. The' only woman so imprisoned, Sylva has been sent to a eamp where she is surrounded by Nazi calloborators from World War II. Her case is so appalling that it has been taken up by Amnesty International freedom loving people throughout the world, all seeking clemency for her. In a vigil held by Hadassah on Sylva Zaimanson's behalf at the Isaiah Wall, in the shadow of the United Nations Rose E. Matzkin, national president of Hadassah, said that this appeal was humanitarian, not political. "Sylva Zalmanson has

never spoken against the Soviet Union, nor participated in its political life. Her only 'crime' is that she has sought to go to Israel where she can live as a conscientious observant Jew. "We are appealing to people of goi>d will and government leaders to speak up for Sylva and join in urging the Soviet Union to free her and let her go to Israel. She has already served four years of a ten-year sentence. At 30 years she -is a pbysicaUy broken women — she has tuberculosis, ulcers and is losing her hearing. She has not seen por heard from her husband Edward Kuznetsov nor her brothers Vulf and Israel Zalmanson since her imprisonment." Sylva Zalmanson was bom on Octover 25, 1944 in Siberia where her family had fled from the Nazis during World War n. They later returned to • Riga, their native city. After graduating from the Riga Polytechnical Institute in 1967 as a mechanical engineer, Sylva worked in a Riga

factory. In 1970 she married Edward Kuznetsov. Beginning in 1962, she sought in vain to obtain permission to emigrate to Israel, because she believed that there was no way for her to live as a Jew in the Soviet Union. On June 15, 1970, after many frustrating and fruitless applications for an exit visa, ^Iva, along with ten other Jews, including her husband and two brothers were arrested. They were "




accused of "anti-Soviet activity," a catch-ell charge that assure* conviction without evidence or fact. In the notorious Lenigrad Trial of December. 1970. E^lward was given the death sentence, which was commuted, after a world-wide protest, to IS years. Sylva and Israel were sentenced to 10 and 8 years, respectively. Shortly thereafter, VuU waatried by a military courtmartial and received a tenyeer term, -•.— ^'
