Omaha Reporter Tells Impressions of Israel Omaha - With a modest disclsimer that his recent trip to Israel has nol made him an "instant expert," Hsrold Cowan, staff writer for the Omaha World Herald, shared with the Jewish Preu this week lome of his observations and impressions of the Jewish SUte. Mr. Cowan was among the 38 American newsmen who participated in a tour of Israel last February sponsored by the American Zionist Federation. His participation in the tour was arranged by the Community Relations Committee of the Omaha Jewish Federation. Describing the trip as the "realization of a life-feng dream," Mr^—Cowan explained that as the son of a Methodist minister, bis constant exposure to the Bible was the source of his early teenage interest in Israel. In a word, Mr. Cowan was "impressed" with Israel. "It was everything I hoped it would be." he said. Among the impressions brought back by the Omaha reporter was the feeling that "Israel wants nothing more than the chance Io live In peace." He was impressed with the people, describing Israelis as "a homogeneous group in terms of goals, but like any young society, with a diversity of opinions as to how toacMe«« those goala." ^ In Mr. Cowan's view, problems of defense still claim top priority in Israel today. "But the people seem confident about their ability to defend themselves," he

In his view, Israelis are concerned about the defense of their country but hold no desires for "expanskmlm" as has been charged bi Arab propaganda. Almost of equal concern to Israelis is the growing problem "of inflation. According to Cowan, the critical hardships caused by inflation have forced many Israeli wives to return to work. "With high prices and even "higher taxes, most Israelis are coping with severe financial problems," he said. Among the "surprises" idr Mr. Cowan, was the issue o( Who is a Jew? which seems to be "tearing the people apari. I was not aware," Mr. Oiwan continued, "of the grave political, social and economic impUcationi of what I had thought Io be only a raligiou*

question." A series of three articles written by Mr. ^owan about his Israel tour began last Sunday In the Magazine of Midlamls. According to Mr. Cowan, no editorial restrictions were put upon members of the tour. "We were told before we left for Israel, that we were free to speak with anyone we wanted to, and to write what we please. At no time was it ever suggested that we slant our comments in any way. The articles in the World Herald are truly my honest imprctsiona of some of the things we saw; the people we talked to and the experiences we had during this Unforgettable trip."

U>8 ANGELES, (JTA) — A tmall bomb exploded at the Lebanese consulate bore Saturday causing little damage. The consulate, on the seventh floor of a Hollywood Boulevard building, wu unoccupied at the time. Jhiit b«nre the Xslon an anonymous to the Los Angeles news agency, aty News Service, claimed the bomb was a reprisal for Thuraday'a temrlst attack on Kiryat Shemona. The caller concluded with "Never Again." the slogan of the Jewish Defense League. On Friday, five nuaked men entered the Arab Information center in downtown San Franciaco shortly before noon, emptied Tiling cabineta and desks and then fled without harming either the information center director, Inraham Tawaaha, or his secreUry. Later, a news media office received an anonymoui call declaring that the raid was in protest against the massacre of civilians at Kiryat Shemona. Accofxling to one report, the caller, concluded with the words "Never Again." The Jewish Community Relations Council of San Francisco and tbe Bay Area issued a atatement, in response to requests from ktcal media, declaring that "up to this time the police have not idenUfied the per-

"From the Jewish standpoint, intermarriage as such is undesirable whether the man is an ordinary citizen or a prominent leader. However, according to Jewish law and practice, a Jew does not ceaae to be a Jew in any way whatever nor does he lose any of his Jewish religious privileges, by the fact of intermarriage. There is no reason to believe that Dr. Kissinger wishes to disassociate himself from the Jewish faith or the Jewish people." "I'm not disturbed," said Rabbi Stanley Rabinowitz of the Conservative Adas Israel Congregation. "Secretary Kissinger has become a citizen of the world. He has a right to do as he wishes. He is

not less nor more of a Jew because of his marriage. It should not affect his standing either in the Jewish or in the civic community and we have no right to imopse our practice upon him.""*!"~~^' But Rabbi H. Jonah Waldman of the Agudath Achim Congregation of Washington, a traditional Orthodox synagogue said: "Judaism does not recognize the marriage between Avraham Kissinger and Miss Nancy Maginess. It means, simply, according to Jewish tradition, that they both live together without the sanction of Jewish law. It is evident that Henry Kissinger does not regard himself a Jew at all for be was sworn in as Secretary of State on Shabbos and his left hand rested on the New Testament. He flew to Moscow on Shabbos and disgraced Judaism as a whole by entering into a so-called marriage ceremony with Miss Maginess on Shabbos."

The Report of the Agranat Commission Shortly before sunaet on Eaiter Sunday, March 23, 1913, a violent tornado ttnick the heart of Omaha. Entering from the southwest and cutting acrou the city in a northeasterly direction, the storm left in its wake a path of destruction several blocks wide and over four miles long. Omaha was left without electricity, telephone and telegraph services were disnipted, and public transportation came to a halt. Final figures showed a total of Its deaths and 3S0 injured. Five hundred and fifty homes/ were totally demolished over 1,000 other suffered at least damage. The area around Mth and Lake itreets, housing a large pareenlage of the Jewish population, was among thoae sections hardest hit. Altogether, 1S3 Jewish families suffered as a direct result of the tornado and "many of these families were left pennileu without food, ciolhing or shelter and in destitute circumstances." A number of Jews were among the dead, including Nathan Krinsky, his wife, and five children who lived near 24th and Lake in back of a bakery which the family operated. Within two days of the storm, leaders of the Jewish

community met and organized a Jewish Relief Committee to raise funds to "Uke in hand the task of alleviating the wants of those ca-religionists who needed relief," The committee agreed to cooperate with the citywide Citisens' Relief Committee but, as one member of the Jewish committee stated, "We always care (or our own people." The Jewish Relief Committee met almost daily for some weeks after the tornado I a relief station for Jewish victims was set up at 16M) N. 24th St. Woriters the neighborhood searching for needy victims, ^supplied them with clothing, ling, groceries, fuel, rent honey, and made repairs to W homes. Atotal of more than tB,000 was raised, not only from Omaha but also from Jewiah communities in Lincoln, Council Bluffs. Sioux Oty, FYaraoot, Das Moinas, and Leavenworth. Local Jewish organizations dipped into their treasuries to contribute to the relief fund. William McKinley Lodge No. 521 of B'nai B'rith gave a benefit ball, the Omaha Hebrew Hub offered aid to iu members, and Wise Koapital dispensed free care to all tornado victims referred by the Jewish Relief Committee.

In the wake of the October war, the government of Prime Minister Golds Meir appointed a commission beaded by the Chief Justice of the Israel Supreme Court, Shimon Agranat, to Invest iga-t^ Israel's preparedness for the war. It had been hoped that the first report of the commission would exorcize the spirit of recrimination which has poneiaed the body politic of Israel since the war. But the preliminary report issuad last week has sparked resignations and a growing political crisis in Israel. Agranat, Justice Moshe Landau, State Controller Yitzhak Nebenzahl and former chiefs-of-staff Yigael Yadin and Haim Laskov criticized Chief-of-SUff Lieut. Gen. David Elazar for being overconfident, unprepared and unresponsive to the Egyptian salient and unwilling to call up the reserves before the attack. Elazar submitted his resignation under protest Apr. 2, immedii)tely after the report was released. The commission also criticized Army Intelligence Chief MaJ. Gen. Eliahu Zeira and three of his assistants for failing to properly assess and report signs of Eigyptian and Syrian mobilization which preceded the Arab attack. Zeira also resigned after the report was published. Maj. Gen. Shmuel Gonen, commander of the Egyptian front when the war broke out, was strongly criticized by the

Haifa — Israelis wQl celebrate their Independence Day next week, but most of than are still not yet quite certain what their mood will be. Even after 25 years, Israel has not found the formula for observance of its national holiday. In moat years the central event had been the big military parade and the air force aerial show. The dual purpose was apparently to flex our muscles and demonstrate our armed power as a warning to the foe, on the one band, and to give the Israeli citizen a sense of pride and confidence, a kind of civic morale booster. Supplementing the parade were numerous other events of varied cultural and entertainment value. The general mood had always been one of rejoicing, light-hearted gaiety and a general tense of self-satisfaction at our succetaes. la recent years there had beea a grvwiag crMeism af the mUlUry aspccU •! the celeferatiMi. Many had advocated shifUog the emphasis to ecoaamic developmnt, both Mastrial and agricaltarai; to ealtaral and sdeatifk ereaUvMy: to youth aMi edacatlaa and health.

thousands ol children dancing In the streets, all have their place in the observance. Even the giddy habit of striking people over the heads with the noisy but harmless plastic hammers has in some curious way become identified as an integral part of the day's celebration. t A large question mark still hovers over this year's oeirt>ration, and no one yet knows how the public will react. We are still too ck>se to the Yom Kippur War Though we emerged from that war victorious, the after-effect of the shock is still being felt. Too many families are still in mourning for sons, brolhen, husbands, to enable the rest of ua to rejoice with abandon in the strMt*. The military victory has been followed quickly by a series of political compromises of which the public is still suspicious. The northern border still edwes to the thindcr of heavy artillery. The frequent rotation of young men in the military service Is still constant reminder that the threat of war has not been removed. We shall abfcrve ladcpealcncc Day 1914 wiU mixed fccUags.

Once again, the world stands silently by. I find it difficult to undersUnd the silence; the abaence of outraged reactions and vocal condemnation by

the international community of this Und of barbarity. Where Is the moral conscience of the world? It's ironic that the Kiryat Shemona massacre comes so clooe to the observance of Yom Hashoah— the Day of Rememt>erance for the martyrs of the Holocaust and the heroes of the Warsaw Ghetto. Then too the world turned a deaf ear to the tragic waste of 6,000,000 Jewish lives. Apparently things haven't changed very much. The numbers make little difference. 6,000,000 or 18, the innocent victims of murder should arouse the moral indignation of all decent people.

Teen Forum On Thursday evening, April 18th and Friday, April 19tb, Jews the world over will be observing Yom Hashoah, a day of rememberance of the Holocaust. The purpose of this observance is to perpet^uate the memory of the six millloa Jewi who perished at the hands of the Nazis. *" At the end of tl)ls Passover seaaon, I am reminded of t prayer relating to these six million dead I once read, and until now, had forgotten. The prayer reminded me that there are no words of comfort for us for this terrible loss of life. Nor can we ever allow ourselves to forget them; for by so doing, they die a second time. By remembering ttiem, they live again ... In us ... and through us. I hope that through sharing my thoughts with you. you will want to remember, and to pariicipato in this solemn period of observance. As Jewish youth who are members of an organization dedicated to the perpetuation of Jewish life, it is our responsibility to remember the six million who were murdered under the Nazi reign of terror by our parilcipatlon In any special memorial services for Yom Hashoah that your synagogue may hold. BBYO members are urged to conUct their synagogues for more information regarding these servieei. In conclusion, I want to leave you with these thoughts from the Holocaust prayer: "Can we forget? Should we allow our•elves to forget the extermination, the toriures, and the dtaDtf?" The antwert Ue within eadi Of you.

Saturday night's dance party. Our Kaycee counterparts provided music by sn all-girl rock band, snacks and a free bar. There was even a postparty party given by one KC member. Walt Fink, goodhumored president of the KC groiq) ("That'a really my name," he tells you), was on

"It was good getting out of town for the weekend," said more than one member. Now, Omaha's YAD (that's Young Adult Division) plans to reciprocate. A meeting was held earlier this week to plan for a visit to Omaha by KC's young adults — specifically, a swim-dance party tentatively set for the Thomasville Apartments clubhouse June 22. It'll be a good chance for Omaha's YAD'ers to show off their hospitality and their city — and also a good chance to gain new friends snd establish a good relationship with our KC counterparts. In the more immediate future, YAD is planning a "Midnight Supper" tor Saturday night, April 27, at the Century Apartments clubhouse. Fred Crosby, YAD member who formerly was a director of a Jewish young adult group in the Twin Cities (Minneapolis-St. Paul), came up with the idea on this one. Other ideas we've had bichide nature hikes, picnics, ball games (our own or professional), hayrack rides — things to do In the spring. Got any other IdeM? YAD would lilw to bear from you.

Doesrft Anybody Care migrant family into a community is always a diffknilt task. Different customs, language, laws and work lUlls ve practiced or needed. Undoubtedly, problems are increased when a family settles in a small community. Few, if any, other families have shared n this resettlement experience and can help to buffer the cultural shock that the new Immigrant enctunters. Although I have no direct knowledge about those immigrant families of the SO's who left Des Moines, (he reasons for their leaving could be many. Job opportunities elsewhere have caused immigrant and native-bwn alike to leave Oas Moines. No doubt, some immigrant famlliea have cboaen to move to larger communities where relatives We felt the beat response to or other recent immigrants this comment would be from live.

Campaign Progress Report By Betty Metoel Des Moinea — Stan Engman reports that the men's campaign Is in full swing and doing very well. Obviously, the educational information the Federation has sent out this year has made a good impression on our men. It is hard to read of the needs of the community and the cost of providing services without being moved to actkw. Evidently, this has been the case this year, as we are

SO per cent ahead of last year, with only 214 out of the S18 cards. The obvious question is whether aU the concerned people rushed to get their pledges in, accounting for the high ngures. According to Stan this is not true as moat of the cards not in belong to men who have not even been contacted yet. With a volunteer force working nighia and weekends to make the calls it is not surprising that it takM so kwg Just to make an initial contact.

Perhaps one reaaon for the overwhelmingly generous gifts has been that aside from our usual commitments, such as the Iowa Jewish Home, the Bureau, the Jewish Community Center and the Jewish Family Service, this year we have been privileged to add to the budget the cost of settling two Russfain Jewish (amillea in Des Moines. ItUaprtvUege to bring the two families here and to be able to share with them.

For the Omaha PuWIc Power Dfstricl. 1973 was a year of gieai progress First it saw the completion of the Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant. A 100% operating license was grgnled by the Atomic Energy Commission on August 9. 1973 and the lirst electricity wiis produce<l August 25, 1973 By the end of Fotjruary 1974, the unit had produced a billion kilowatt hours of energy Although this generating station has l>een in operation for only a lew months, its economic significance to all District customerii is already profound II oil had tieen used to generate the billion kilowatt hours, nwre than 100.000,000 gallons would have been required The startling stivlng made possible by use ol nuclear lu«4 is shown by this comparison o( cost ol luels needed to produce a million BTU's ol energy; Oil

NaturalQas 46 .35 Nuclear 16 .14 Our nuclear fuel cost is established for the next A'/i yeais, while the costs ol natural gas. coal, and oil are undoubtedly going higher In the lour morithS; November 1973 through February 1974, Fori Calhoun generated more than 55% ol the electricity used by our customers It also has enabled us to help a number ol our elecIncal neighbors. We have furnished power to eighteen utilities In Net}raska and other midwestern states Although the District set new records lor power generation lor the entire year, the rate of inaeaiie ol electrical con-

sumption began to slow down toward the end ol 1973. Undoutitedly, national appeals for careful use of all energy have had an ellect, even though OPPO has adequate power. It is still too early to chart the actual course ol customer usage For one thing, we are tsegmning to see more conversion ol existing lossit-luel heating, both commercial and residential, to electrtoity. The use ol electricity in homes and plants is also upward And there can be little doubt that in the long x\x\ electricity must replace fossil luels which are in short supply. Because of careful k>flg-range planning, the District is fortunate in having adequate electrical capacity to meet the needs ol its customers We can, therefore, provide all the electficily which our custonrwrs need, although we caution everyone to use it wisely and to eliminate waste or extravagance The entire planning process is complicated by the long lead ti(T« needed lor planning. lundirH), and construction ol new capacity — seven years tor a coallired plant and up to ten years lor a nuclear unit We now have proiected our summer peak load to reach 2,637.000 kilowatts by 1990 CJespite the magnitude ol today's problems, we are contldeni ol our ability to meet the challenges ol the future We believe that our customers can take prkle in the District's record ol service, but more so in the people who operate this utility Our goal, as always, remains one ol providing ample electrical sen^ice at mininrHjm cost, and we are determined to be successful.
