All of "The rifth Cup" materials will be available thr««h the Omaha Jewish Federation.

Gerda Kleki: A Vohe of Humanity ^RaaaHottmaa DBS MOINES - A voice sweet and tremulous issued from the lips of Gerda Klein on Friday evening, March 7, at Tifereth Israel Synagogue's community-wide service.

How does fund-raising for Jewish cauMs flD nowadayi In tte midit o( die economic difficulties in the country?... How does the United JMIWI Apiieal fare?... One can hear tbese questions coming from various people interested in Israel, as well as In philanthropic activities in this country Tliere is an undertone of anxiety in (hent. Ilie aoNwr >•: As (ar • the UJA '-«T»'r la caBcwaed, the remits are not loww 00* aa CHnpared with pravioas yean at this time. Ilw gMng does not, however, foUaw the patten of previous yean. In some communities thsre an Juat renewals on the same level M laat year. In other communities there is increased giving. Buttharean «lao decrease*. They an •vldenccd among certala categories of cootrttiuton who have been sertduaiy affected ky the prcaant economic Up tUI the beginning of this month, UK UJA has raised in pledges more than $205 million for lU 1975 drive. This Is somewhat higher than the total raised last year during the same period. The cash coUectlons are also higher. During, the months of tiecemiMr^ January and Fei>ruary, the UJA collected more than t4i million, which is K miUion more than Om cash raised during the same three months a year ago. The willingness to give Is noticed everywhere, but with . some givers in the highest brackets there is a question of ability to give as much as ttiey would like to. With the economic situatkm

in Israel being what It is— devaluation of currency followed by increase In taxes—the natural Inclination of many givers (s to Increase their contributions to UJA Tlioae who are not in a pasHkin to do so thli year are very apolegetic They feel sincerely sorty. The big problem for UJA now la those givers who lact year, and also previously, contributed a million dollan and mora each. There are quite a number of them This year most of them have been affected by the financial crisis. They do not see themsehwa in a poaitlaa to be as «•• cuittwally fneraus in their oaatrawtioM u they were. They are radudng their gifts accordlngty. When million-dollar contributions are reduced, Uie UJA faces the necessity to find new contributors to make up the difference. New contributors are thus sought now by UJA through different methods. Attempts are being made to discover elements in American Jewry wtw can afford to make substantial gilts but who have been Indifferent to Jewish cauaes. These attempts are to a certain extent successful, but unprtcedented efforts are sliil required to cover the.kiBS sustained by i^ijuctlaa ItHhe million-dallaf~ category of giving. On the whole, the UJA campaign is now exciting the vibrant because of the partlcipatkm of more "young bhwd." Never before have the UJA campaigns attracted so many young eiemenia u this year.

The Arab boycott list Involving American ,firms In which Je«'s maintian financial participation-and the Arab "chutzpa" of going even as far as pressuring US enterprises to ban Jews from responsible positions if they wish to do business with UK oil countries-has done much to evoke Jewish consciousness among alienated Jews. This U of help to the UJA, Inasmuch as Jews who kept themselves afar from Jewish life are beginning to see that the Arabs are determined (o hit them no less than other Jews. This opened new avenues of thought among them about their Jewish obligatloos.

Major Themes NEW YORK (JTA) - Israeli President Bphralm Katzlr has txen stressing three basic Uiemes In bis Ulks to various Jewish organizatkNis: the State of Israel Is a "pUot plant" where the Jewish people can protect themselves when necessary; Increased Jewish education in Israel and the United States Is now more essential than ever; and the return of Soviet Jews to Israeir aided by Jews tai America, Israel and other countries. Is a "miracle." Katzlr, who arrived In the U.S. last week for the first time since he took office, told 300 leaden from the United Jewish Appeal and Jewish Federatkms and Welfare Funds that "As a chemist, I look at tiny Israel as a kind of pikit plant—a laboratory for the worid around; the worid needs a place where experiments win

be done, where morals are high, where human life Is respected, "And this little pitot plant is where we can test the wonderful kleas for which we have stood (or so many yean." In another addresa to more than 1,500 Yeshlva University studenU KaUir said that Israel' 'has learned from disaster that we must educate for protection worthy of survival." Referring to the "miracle" of Soviet Jews coming to Israel, Katzlr affirmed: "Miracles will continue to happen as long as there are Jews In the worid."

It Is Just a year since the rape-murder of four youQg Syrian Jewish women who aaiiglit to (lee their country becauae J«Wi nay not leave Syria lapBy • It it a grim aaolvafsary, for the situation of the Jews of Syria remains oppmaive deqHte hopes ralaed l)y the resum|>lion of diplomatic ratlatloos between Damascus and Washington, and the praalM of up to tlOO million in American aid to Syria—presumaMy on Vw basis of some improvement in Syria's International behavior and in the way it treaU iU own citizens. Life among the 4.500 Jews of Syria Is fraught with harassment, restrictions, terror—and worse. Here are some examples: Jews ID Syria may not Iravd more than four kflonetOTi from their homes. They may not bold Joba In nwetmueut Inatitutkias or in the natlnnalhiwl aector of the economy. Tliey mnst obey a 10 p.m. curfew and dare not mlaa the pertodlcitreet nUaalls. Their mall U censored. Jews cannot vote, or get a driver's license, or aifly lor a telephone. In November 1171 nearly all Jewish students were eipelled from Syrian unKreraltles; only a handful of new Jewish studenia have been admitted since then. Identity cards of Jews (in contrast of other citizens) are holdly marked in large read letters: MUSAWI ("Mosaic"), reminiscent of the "Jude" that Jews carried in Nazi Germany. Jewish bank accounts are similarly marked in red. When a Jew dies, his property is confiscated by the state and may be received by his lawful heirs only upon payment of a "rental" fee to the state. These are the conditions that Impelled the four young Jewish women to seek to escape from Syria last year. Their effort to reach Lebanon failed; forced to hide in a mountain cave, they were found raped and murdered. Among the four men accused of the crime were two respected members of the Damascus Jewish commnnity, one the brother-in-law of one of the voung women.

Thus it was both cruel and misleading when Mike Wallace and a CBS-TV crew visited the ghetto in Damascua recently to report on the situation of Syrian Jewry. Everywhere they weitf — by Wallace's own admission - they were accompanied by three Syrian aecurity agents. WhHi Wallace asked, "Where do aU these itorlea come from about how badly the Jews are treated In SyrU?" a Jewish acfaoolteacher replied on camera: "I think that It's Zionist piSipaganda."(The camera did not record the fearful glance she must have given the Syrian agents waiting for her responae.) But it is not "Zionist propaganda " It is fact that has been reported and confirmed by the New York Times, London Evening Standard, lie Figaro, Epoca and — most recently - by the distinguished Copenhagen daily.

The Fruit of Appeasement EdiUr't N««e; Tk« lallawtag li fram the MMdIe Etst Memo e( lira ConCerence o( PreeMeali ef Major Amerkaa JelHah Orgaaiiatloni. The atUck of Tel Aviv by the mlliUry arm o( Yaiir Arafat'i Al Fatah movement is the fruit of the world'i appeaaement of Arab terrotism. The latest assault against innocent civilians in Israel is not an isolated act. It grows out of the legitimizing of Arab terrorism by the United Nations, which voted to permit the chief Arab terrorist — Yasir Arafat himself — to speak from the UN rostrum. It is the consequence of inviting PLO representatives to take part in international meetings. It is the up-shot of the Rabat conference at which the Arab world gave carte blanche to the terrorist movement. Once again YasIr Arafat and Al Falak have given the Ue lo those wbe see them ai 'moderates.' There is nothing 'moderate' about murder. Arafat is ^ty of murder. There is nothing 'moderate' aboulthe liquidation of Israel. Arafat demanded the liquidation of Israel from the platform of the United NaUons. Today there is shock and revulaien at the latest terroriat action. But how will the world act tomorrow? Will France now withdraw its support for admitting the PLO Into the European Common Market M an observer? WUI India close the PU) efnce U permitted to open la New Delhi last Jaaaary? Will the Soviet Union stop supplying arms and training and funds to the PU) and will Foreign Minister Gromyko repudiate his prejudice of political support? Will UNESCO expel the PLO from future meetings? Will the UN Conference on the Law of the Sea strike the PLO from its list of participants? Will the UN conference on world population problems bar the PLO from its future sessions? As we mourn the dead, so do we condemn those who share responsibilities for their murder. We condemn the governments that have accepted the PLO as a member of the family of nations. We condemn the USSR and the Arab aUtes that give the PLO money, weapons, and safe-haven where the terrorists i)ractlce to Ull. And we condemn all those who, by their silence In the face af wanton murder or their 'even-handed' approach that eqaaiei Arab terror with iMrfeti sovereignty, partake of the guilt for what happened In Tel Aviv as they must asinme blame for the abombiallon of Ma'alot and Munich and all the other placet In the melancholy inventory of places where Arab Ullert have •track against all mea asd young mothers and children al KiMOl.

The terrorist raid in Tel Aviv is but another attempt — doomed to failure — to break the will of the Israeli people. It is also an effort — equally doomed to failure — to Mbotage the mission of Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in seeUng further progreas toward a peaceful ae(llement in the Middle East. That mission mual and will go forward. Secretary Kiasinger's forthright condemnation of the terrorist attack will hearten all those who yearn for an end to the Ulling and the beginning of Arab-Israel peace.

€»iir^iiiiiii ill iwrii^el Jerusalem Muzzles Its Bulldozers HAIFA - This is "Historic Monuments Year" in Europe, and a major campaign is under way seeking to preserve old buildings because of their historic, artistic or cultural value before the bulldozers of progress gobble up the old landmarks. Jerusalem Is one step ahead. The municipal town planning department has drawn up a list of 106 structures which have been marked for preservation. In Israel lliere is already legislation which adeqtiately protects anclmt sites. Indeed, even the faintest suggestion that antiquities have been found is sufficient cause to bring about a halt to new construction or to ploughing of a field. But what of structures whose importance dates from more modem times? The JtrutaUm Hit coDititutei almoit a guldibook to Uttle known iltaa of iniereit In the capital dty. The great majority of itnictiina liave btto dioMO becaiaa of Uwir unh|ue ardiMfcture, tbougli moit of their ghariea are today hidden behind cMha lioei or inpruned Ireei. Only three have been listed for historic reasons alone: the wooden hut at 17 Alharizi St., which was tlie home of the second President, Yitzhak Ben Zvi, and aerves as Israel's counterpart of the "log cabin"; the building at 28 Ein Qeddl St., Talpiot, where EHIezer Ben Yehuda lived durlRg the period when he almost single-handedly brought about the revival of Hebrew as a spoken tongue; the monument marking General Allenby's entrance Into Jerusalem in 1917. Some of the buildings slated tor preservation are wellknown and certainly in no

inunediate danger of being razed. Among these are the Rockefeller Museum, the Jewish Agency compound. King David Hotel, the Y.M.C.A., Augusta Victoria Hospital, the Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus, and Hechal Shlomo, seat of the Chief Rabbinate There is marked contrast between the original functions of the older buildings and the use to which they are being put today. Does the staff of the Israel Broadcasting Service ever consider that the stone walls of tlielr offices once looked down upon the Empress of Ethiopia? The neoclassical structure on Queen Helena Street was put up in the 30's to house the Empress when she and Halle Selassie were refugees from Italian conquest. Ite thtae story building at » Shivtei larael St. reaemblM the ancient palace in Florence^ with its oeorenaiaiance style. For many yeara it waa the Italian Hnqtital. Today tt bouaei the cMa and ofBdalt of the Miniitry «(Educatteo. The German-style building al 42 Street of the Prophets has an historic claim, In addition to Ita architecture. In that it was here that Kaiser Wilhelm met Theodore Herzl in 1896. Today it is an ORT School. For some reason the lilt does not include the no-lesshlstoric house on Mamillah iioad where Theodore Herzl was the guest of the Stem family during his historic visit to Jerusalem. Descendants of EXPANDING The Jewish National Fund is adding 3,000,000 cubic meters of water capacity to the northern Golan Heights by expanding two existing reservoirs and adding a third.

the family have preserved the rooms as a private museum. There Is an even-handed objectivity in the choice of sites. If the Hebrew Unktn College building (Reform) is listed, so Is the building which now houses the United Synagogue movement (Conserv.ative). Oil Orthodox synagogues there is no shortage. Christian religious sites number more than 30. And a final bit of history. In the 1930's the Arabs build a luxurious 4-story hotel at 30 Mamillah Road In ostentatious Middle East style. It waa to be their answer to the rapid Jewish development in that part of the city. Today the same building, with its Interior court and tiered balconies houses the Israel Ministry of Commerce and Industry. The address is now 30 Agron Street. It will be preserved. Worth seeing.

The lough schedule aUowed tiM two to meet with and ajitwer the queations of American high school •tudenU. Ihe pair strened wbeiever they went that their answer* were their own and not the official answers of the laraell government. Both teens, who found when they met on the tour that they share an interest in science, said most of the questions asked them concerned U.S. Secretary of Slate Kissinger, the Palestinian Question, what life is like In Israel and what the chances are for another war. -' - • • YMI. replied to the

t'alestinian questkm by saying they "have a right to their own territory. And the Arabs could solve the problem If they wanted to" because they've got enouugh money and enough land to set up the Palestinians without taking from Israel territory. 'But the Arabs are keeping up the problem as a weapon." The lean beapectacled Yael, a native Israeli (sabra), said tte "would not worry about the PLO because they are murderers, they don't recognize Israel and are not the elected representatives of the

fgk^ TVTH6

Palestinian people." Alon, who came to Israel from Canada with her family when she was a child, said any peace agreement with the Arabs roust first recognize Israel's right to exist and secondly must be "other then paper"—that is, there must be diplomatic and economic relations established between theslgnees. They also felt Israel should give back part of the West Bank—but not Jerusalem, and not the Golan Heights. Alon said he personally Is happy with the new <dlm

(those making allyah to Israel). He and Yael ffA into a bit of humorous by-play on that when he said of the olim, "I think they are good people and I am happy to have them." "Thank you," said Yael. "You're welcome!" said Alon. In a more serious vein, Yael said she was happy her family came to Israel. "I feet more Israeli now than anything. And 1 think novf I never want to be anything else." The two were the guests of Mr. and JJIrs. Stuart Tully during their Omaha visit.

Those who might want to look for greener pastures have their ambitions nipped In the bud by the devaluation of the pound coupled with the rise in travel tax. Any Israeli wishing to leave the country must pay $125 travel tax, plus IS percent of the cost of his ticket. It will be hard enough for single people to raise the approximate $1,000 for their fares. For families. It will be impoaaible.

The second week of strtngoncy saw Iiraslls In a much more subdued mood. The prohibitive cost of gasoline limited the number of cars on the roads. The ever rising cost of food put an end to the over-laden shopping cart in thk supcr-markeU. People were buying the barest otneoessitles. OoHee shops and restaurants were all but empty. In butcher shops, counterhands have almost nothing to do. There are hardly any customers. Unamptoymsnt flsuna wfll IneTttablyrise. Israel is a nation with a two edged knife at Its throat.

BJE Report

My Brother's Keeper? I ByJoyRabinowltx 1; DES MOINES - A very ; cballenging question was posed to ti)e eight)) graders at the Bureau this year. Onei third of the year was devoted ^ to the teaching of antiSemitism past and present, the Holocaust, |j| well as . Israel and AmericHJJi^ry. :^ First of all. the graduating ? class learned about UJA from Mrs. Rosclind Rabinowltz, ^wtM spoke about where the ;' UJA money went, as well as how It was broken down. In; ciudM In this section were the , Russian Jews In their efforts to get to Israel and the time, money and effort involved. ' Or. Gerald Ferman spoke about tzedaka and the ; meaning behind It. He posed > tbe very significant quntkm, "Am I my brother's keeper?" ^ to them. He also challenged [ the (tudent* by aaking why i ihould Jewi iupf)ort UJA and enot otlier organizations like I tbe Red Croat, or why sbouM |b they support both? [ CariRogat, bead oftba Iowa ' Jawlih Home, ^Mke about ItM i hlitory of the Home. He alao ' ipoke about what tbe Home '. does today, and how it belpa the older people by giving tbemaplacetogo. U)u Williams spoke about i another area of Jewish life. He talked about the history of the ^ Jewish Community Center as I well as the purposes it serves. Basically, he said, It is a place ': o( education as well as a getf together place. ' Ul Carson talked about the ^ Family Service Organization. } Its main purpose, according to ' Mrs. Carson, is to put on f: services for the Home. i Another (unction (or the ) service Is helping the Russian I families get situated In Oes \ Moines. ^ Last but not leaat, Shionio Bcoderly spoke to the cUas ^ about tbe functk»s of tbe ' Bureau. The students had to

matter at hand as a raqnlnnMal for graduatkm. The baalc overview and Interest of the students centered on the meaning of tzedaka. Mrs. Ahuva Epstein, teacher of the Social Studies program, was quite pleased wit^ the outconie. The kids' enthusiasm was overwhelming - they were all very interested In the subject matter. It gave the students ttie chance to learn about different Jewish eiementii that play a part of their everyday lives. The class came out with the attitude that they were Uieir brothers' keeper, not only because they wanted to be, but because their parents taught them ttie philosophy behind tzedaka. The very important value was taught that no man should be put to shame by receiving tzedaka, according to Jewish ethics. We suggest titat the readers of the Press try to answer the question, "Am I my brother's keeper? " as well as the eighth grade students at the Des Moines Bureau of Jewlah Eklucatlon.

Weinstein: VisitIsraeiAnd You'li Understand OMAHA - "You can't Walnstein described as retUy know what it means (to "gMffaphlcaily ooeOaBt Md larad) to keep tbe Golan magnificent beyond exIMgila untU you study and pecUtlon." He said the uml0>tandtheKituatiofl " country is "exdting", that So says Howard Weinstein, "tte people are busy but tiwy executive director of the are excited — ttey are not Community Relations Com- only buUdsrs of a new oountiy mittee of tbe Jewiili but art rM4y to face tbe Federation of Onialu, wito cfaaltawisliiat lie ahead." recenUy did ]ust that - study Israelis ICel deeply the wars and learn the situation. and terrorism "but not the WebislelB's nrst visit to the frenzied depression that Jewlsb State was part of an American Jews seem to feel informational leadership toward Israel. The Israeli course aimed at updating and spirit is up despite everything. intensifying the Israeli It is an Interne country and knowledge of Information most of Uie people 1 met were workers. Sponsored in part by intense about their everyday the World Zionist life. They go about everything Organization and the they do with the same sort of University of Haifa, the three- intensity." week course's main concern Weinstein, who is also was to examine and analyze executive director of the l>asic Israeli problems. Tour Great Plains Region office of group members were North the Anti-Defamation l,«ague Americans and Western of B'nal B'rith, went on his Europeans. own excursions — in to the Sinai Desert past Sharm El HH land of Ivael itMlf Sheikh and into the West Bank area to talk with Arabs in Jericho, Hebron, "Shem" and Gaza. He noted the real translathm of Yasir Arafat's talks about creation of a secular democratic state "which is left out is 'Arabic democratic state, and not secular state." This means the destruction of Israel. In visiU to Kiryat Shemona and Ua'alot. sites o( terrorist attacks on school children, Weinstein learned Utat Arab terrorists had befriended and thus deeply troiMed the children they held hostage. "How could Ih^ do this to us and also be our friends? " the children asked. Town officials feared deep psychological damage. Wdnatein said, "It Is Im-

parattve lo git Anartean tourists — bnslneumen, professionals and young leatisnlilp ptwps - to see Israel flrst-hand. I personally telt very sals in Israel - wc abouM not bold back lours to Israsl becsuae o( that Uaue." American Jews must become "articulate and knowledgeable about Israel. You can't really know what it means to keep the Golan Heights until you study and understand the situation You learn, for example, that the Syrians used to shell the settlements in thoee valleys protected by tbe HeighU." Weinstebi also learned of two levels of terrorism in Israel today - the South Lebanaon geographical area (the Hanita KibbuU 'raid happened there) and "Fatahland" — the western slope of Mount Hermon. Terrorists come from these two areas, Weinstein said, "and it Is Important Israel maintain the security of its border towns — that it maintain secure and defensible borders on tbe north and thesouth." American Jews must alao send misskNis to Israel, both to give "more penonaliied contact" and also to empk)y American know-how to help various Israeli cities to develop. (Weinstein vUited Sefad. Omaha's sister-city, and spoke with city offidais and Mrs. Hdene Van Moppes, who was in Omaha last year.) Weinstein sak[ American Jews can alao learn from Israel and can he4> their feUow Jews bi the Diaspora. And Israelis are prepared to discuss mow openly today the retationahip of Israel to the American Jewish community.

AU in all, Wemsteio found Israel to be "one of tne most exciting, revolutionary nationalistic movements around and it behooves us to become knowlfdgeabie in an articulate way, lo become involved in its policies and proeedurei ... because the Israelis kiok very heavily to our support and alaobecauae it's the only way to be able to discuss the phenonMnon (of Israeli with our neighbors in America."

Tbe additional budget for experimental educational projects in M new development towns and poor neighborhoods-undertaken in face of severe public criticism of the alleged neglect of the Oriental community-will consume another IL 120 mUlion.
