Rabin responded to Weizman's charges in a statement in which he said: "Without going into (he motives of (hose who found it appropriate (o make public an old story as It was seen by one man, I confirm that I was absent from my pos( as Chief of Slaff for one day. On May 23 evening I called in Welzman and asked him to step in so I can have some rest af(er the exhausting work of preparing for war. On May 2S morning I returned to command the army and conduct its activities on the eve and through the Six-Day War to the victory." According (o Weizman's verston, he was summoned (o Rabin's home about 10 days before (he war broke ou( and urged by Rabin to take over as Chief of S(aff because Rabin fell he was incapable of handling (he burden and

believed (hat, in any event, the war would be decided in the air which was Weizman's area of expertise. Weizman claimed he was summoned to Rabin's home on (he following days and met there by the armed forces chief medical officer. Dr. Eliyahu Gillon, who said Rabin was suffering from acute anxiely and was being treated with tranquilizers. Weizman said he had refused Rabin's request (o (ake over command on ground that (he Chief of S(aff's resignation at this time would have been a victory for the Arabs and had a demoralizing effect on Israel's armed forces.

Rabin returned to his office the next day but lacked the power of decision throughout (he brief war, Weizman claimed.

Omaha — Dan Katzman, a member of (he National Campaign Cabhiet of the State of Israel Bond Organization, and Barton H. Greenberg, the 1973 Chairman of the Omaha Israel Bond Campaign, have announced that Phil Schrager will serve aa General Chairman of the 1V74 Israel Bond Drive in Omaha. Accepting the appointment. Mr. Schrager said, "Every year we are told that wKhout our finacial support (he Sa(e of Israel will falter, and every year the Jewish community of Omaha responds by increasing its commitment. I must admit that I have often asked myself when, if ever, we would be told that our aid was no longer required to endure the perpetuation of the State. I think I more fully undentand (ha( day may never come, and I now accept Israel's problems as my own. "It has occured (o me that being of Jewish heritage, I could have been born of parents who emmigrated (o Israel rather (han to the United States. In that case, I

Phil Schrager would be defending my family, my celigion, and my country with my life and the lives of my children rather than with my dollars. But fate alone prescribed that I be an American Jew, and, as such, I know of no REAL suffering when compared to our fellow Jews who struggle for survival each and every day. "As Chairman of the 1974 Israeli Bond Drive for

Omaha, I come to you with these thoughts: the Yom Kippur war devastated Israel's economy; the government is now faced with negotiating a peace settlement on one front while it continues to battle on another. Successful negotiations are plausible only if Israel can bargain trom a position of military and economic strength. lik:ono'mic strength is what our Bond Drive is all about. We in Omaha gave generously during the recent war by supporting the 1973 Bond Drive as well as the Philanthropies campaign. The year 1973 was a difficult year for Jews all over the world, but can we now afford to reduce our support for Israel? "I know that those who have purchased bonds generously in the past will do so once again. I hope that those who have not done so will now find a way . .. remembering that if not for a bit of fate (hey, as I, could this day be in Israel rather than Omaha, and lighting for survival!"

Kahane Resi^ AsHeadof JDL TELAVIV, (JTA)-Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of the Jewish Defense League, has announced that he was resigning as its chairman. He said he was quitting because there was "too little of the right people, too little talent and too litUe money" to carry it the JDL program. He said le would continue to advance the JDL ideology through the "Center of Jewish Consciousness" which he has set up in Jerusalem. Kahane, who is awaiting trial on several criminal charges, made his announcement at a press conference during which he castigated Israel's leadership and the Jewish leadership abroad as "bankrupt" and "cowardly". He said the JDL in its present form could not succeed because its ideas "are too big, too genuine, too Jewish and too daring for the narrow-minded and cowards." He claimed, however, that the JDL


philosophy was "the only hope for the Jewish nation in this chaotic hour." In New Ydrk, David Fisch, national executive diractor of-r the Jewish Defense League, said that the JDL will continue Its activities despite Kahane's resignation. Fisch said that his organization will continue fighting all manifestations of antiSemitism and contended that Kahane will still mainUin a position with the JDL-as a "spiritual advisor." Fisch said that Kahane will continue "to smuggle letters telling us what to do."

HARTFORD, (JTA) — "Hie Jewish Aid Congregaton, a small Orthodox synagogue in Colchester, is functioning normally again alter a three-day spree of vandaliam and defilement that began on Passover eve and for which in/a looys, aged 13-14, have since been arrested. The youngsters, whose identities have been withheld, were turned over to their parents' custody by the juvenile authorites pending a hearing on charges of first degree criminal mischief and third degree burglary. Jack Herman, president of the 80-member congregation which has no permanent rabbi, said the "spiritual damage" was greater than the monetary damage which he estimated at $4000. State Police Commissioner Cleveland B. Fuessenich, declared in a sutement to the Connecticut Jewish Ledger that he had been "assured by investigators that there is no antiSemitism involved and this was strictly an aclof destruction by the juveniles involved in a building that was readily available to them." But the morbid nature of the destruction and defilement, aimed mainly at religious objects and Jewish symbols in the synagogue, appeared to indicate that the acts went beyond mere vandalism. According to the Jewish Ledger's account, the youngsters first broke into the synagogue on Saturday, April 6 when four fire extinguishers were stolen and a fifth used to spray the premises.

The famou* Rabbi of Prague (the Maharal) czplaina thii requirement by laying that one riiauld enter the aanctuary. of hotiaeii in the synagogue gradually.

Dear Friend Sam. 1 can't begin to tell you how deeply moved I was after reading your article on the "old timers" in the Jewish Press (April 5). Sam, it brought back many wonderful memories of our youth and what great times we all had. Not much money, but loads and loads of love and respect for one another. It would be of no use to f xplain to our children and our grandchildren the nostalgia covered in those wonderful times. They never could understand or believe there was such a time in our lives that was so beautiful.

I welcome the opportunity to share with you the National Council of Jewish Women's historic concern for equal ap|)ortunity in both sentiment and implemenlaUon. We fully understand the emotional distress and concern expressed by many members of the Jewish community that affirmative action may lead to a regressive adoption of quolaa basad oo raoa, religion or national origin. The National Council of Jewish Women has been part of the struggle which has made It poaaible for an individual to expect that he will be judged on his own competence, and it is from this stance that we feel compelled to express our concern that complex human problems do not always fit the neat formulae which we have catalogued by law.

the oratorical excellence of an Abba Eban, yet with an unique chairsma, Rabin speaks of his country and his people with an intensity and dedication that leaves little doubt that Israel will survive. At a news conference Wednesday morning, Rabin fiefaled questiooa quickly and concisely and with the dignity befitting bis positiob as AmbsMador d his country. Some M members d the Jewish community were preaent at Temple toad WechicBday eveoing to hear Rahin talk to "hia people" about "hia people aad hli country." I was in awe aa I listened to him speak. 'Hiere was little d what he said that hadn't beaen said before; but I was intrigued by this' quiet, unaaauming man who was responsible for leading the toael Defense forces to a 6 day victory in 1967. A soUier for 27 years, who was now serving his country as Ambaaaador to the United States. I knew I was in the presence d greatness. The highlight d his Omaha visit was his appearance at ij^ ^Oif^iber d ..Com^gj;;

Public Affairs luncheon. Some SOO people were there and heard Yitzhak Rabin say "Israelis don't consider national suicide an international obligation." With quiet strength he told this mixed audience d Jews and non-Jews, "there is no compromise between life and death. We will compromise with our Arab neigMon on matters d terrilory, political matters, economic matters — anything and everything, except our right to survival."

The reapoDSlbllity of educating our young (o meet the needs d the community, as well as lo fullfill their own potenlisl, falls into the category d complex human problems. For this reason, we welcome the opportunity for the highest court in the land to deliberate, and resolve the question d how institutions d higher learning may determine the criteria by which they construct their student Much has happened in the fleM d higher education over the paat eight years. Educational programs and philoaophiea kmg in the realm d the absohite, have been heM up to the lijght, and are undergoing scruthiy as to relevancy and appropriatencas for meeting the needs of our society. Numerical grading systems have been questioned with much discussion about their ability to measure adequately a young person's motivation, clMracter, and potential. Most d us have accepted in the abstract the need for certain subjective considerations. Difficulties ariae when these abstractions seem to collide with our own family goals. It is in this area that reasonable people have raised questions and concerns. The case d Marco DeFunis against the University of Washington, now in the Supreme Court, will seek lo define the narrow question d whether the University of Washington bad the right to consider subjective criteria and the social needs of the community in composing their Law Schod claM. It is not an issue of quota, in the opinion d NCJW and the Social Action Commission d 4he Union of American Hebrew Congregations. We share with our feUow Jews an abhorrence for any regressive acts in the direction of racial and religious quolaa, and will continue to be vigilantly aware d aiiy movement in that direction. The issue in this caae la clear. Did the University have the right to Judge subjectively the compodtkMi d iuclaaa? The (acta d the caae, in our opinion, belie that Mr. Dd'Unia was rejected solely because d his race, hia religkin or on the baais d quota. Just aa M blacks and Chicanos scored k>wer than he in that entering daaa, so dM 3S whites. Obviously the reasons were subjective b> both instances. The University of Washington, pursuant to the spirit d Executive Order tUtt attempted to provfcle an opporhnity for young people (who had been diaadvanta^ through no fadt d their own) to begin to become constructive members d our aocidy in a field where there is glreal and conspicuous under-representation of minorities.

Our generation has the unique opportunity to be part d another major milestone in (he Jewish life of this community. This Sunday we can play our part in history. By our presence we can demonstrate our commitment to the continuity of viable Jewish life in our community. It was this commitment which motivated the dream of a new Center to serve the needs of all of ua. The dream has been realized, and the reat is up to us. We should be at the new Center at 2 p.m. this Sunday. We should witness the historic opening ceremonies. We should gel the Center df to a good start by enrolling as members and by registering for the spring programs. II doesn't bappea dten and we should all be part d the historic events at the new Jewish Commanhy Center ibis Saaday.

In 1911 a pamphlet enUtled "Americanlsbe Shtedt" was published In Yiddish and distributed by the Jewish Colonltatioa Association In an attempt to hiduee prospective imigranis lo settle in midwestern cities. Omaha and South Omaha, then aeparale oommunitias, were peliited out as tte most desirable places for Jews in Nebraska, although the daavripUuii was far (ram flattering and may have accounted, at least to some extent, for the fsct that Omaha becantii the home d far fewer refugees than did such cities as MUwauhte, Kansas City, aiMl Detrdt. The pamphlet deKribed Omaha as having a population d 5,000 Jews wtwae economic position was consklered "not bad." Omaha Jews were divided into three groupa, d whk:h the largest comprised workers, the second stprelteeperi, and the

third, peddlen. It was explained ttat tbare were few Jewish "handworkers" in Omaha because the pey was low, averaging IMO weeUy and the ««rk was nd steady. Butchers were paid tMI a week. taeal Jewish organizations and the economy d UM dty In gsnaral were daacvlbed.
