"It's the only way you're going to do anythtog. Go out and knock some beaditogether and aee what you can come up with."

This is because of what the Lord did for me when I left Egypt'." It was not our fathers alone that the Holy and Blessed One redeemed, but he redeemed us. loo, with them. As mombert of the Omoho Jewish community, tho throo men on the cover of this Passover edition of The Jewish Press — Steven J. Riekes on the left, Poul A. J. Shyken on the right and Harlan J. f4oddle. with daughter Soile — exemplify this responsibility of re-telling the story becouse each is a practicing, concerned Jew who chose to return to the city of his birth to help its Jewish community (jMitlnue. They oivd the other nine people profiled in this issue hove two other ooints in common: first, they ore oil under 40 yeori of age and second, each firmly believes in his hometown, be it from tho standpoint of one involved in its Jewish community or Us civic or business community, or oil three. In these stories, they tell what tliey feel and also, in some instances, what they feel will help make the good life they and their fellow Jews enioy even better. Their stories, token in totol, symbolize, too, the freedom to be and to do which they, their fothers ond tfieir fathers' fotliers hove enjoyed ond celebrate in lliis Itolkioy.

Of course, It's probably to the back of my^

JH^BUnd that I want kids to feel the same as I did."

It is a strong tovolvement with a deep commitment to Judaism which Paul'a softspoken cheerful manner might not indicate to the casual obatrver.

It was probably a bit of Paul's college experience that got him involved in the remodeling. When he and his brother Keva. 32, were In college, they couldn't fhid jobs, Paul relates. "We bought a little house and fixed It up, but we couldn't sell it, so we rentedlt.

Many of them don't know what tlut is. I've got pride to the survival of it — you're always aware somebody doesn't like you. but it doeant matter because we arestrongerthan that."

"The reason we got hivolved (hi Young Leadership) is we both feel very ckiae to our Jewish IdenUty, but we don't think that Judaism has to be defined n synagogue attendance, althou^ we both plan to joto," Uaa said. Both she and Denny had formal religious training as youngsters and both became BarMttzvah.

It would have been difficult to marry somebody who wasn't Jewish because of the gut feeling about befaig Jewish." She related how a college friend from a heavily Jewish Cliicago area neighborhood reacted to her parenU' In- . sistance she dale only Jews: the girt became a Mormon. Thinking about how her I parents trusted her, Lisa said, "That's what I 'd do for any kid I have - give him the feeling j that it's very good to be Jewish, but your life is your own and your decision is your; own, "You don't have to live to a ] certato neighbortiood to be; jlewiah.

The stores range in siae from 4,000 to 102,000 square feet. Jerry, 36, la executive vice president-chief operating officer. His brother Nelaon, 3S, Is vice president for operations and controb. Jerry attributes much of the firm's success today to the fact "we have natlve^wm Jewish Omahans In responsible management poalUons with the company." He lists such as Phil Barron, Ron Simons and Carl Lefschuetx among those either nativebom Omahans or longtime realdenta. "They have been vary Instrumental In helpbig our company grow. I might add we have a very young

The company malntaina an apartment In New York City, where Jerry baa had to spend "In excess of two months out of the year." He's also travelled to Chicago, Daliaa and Loe Angeles. He was general merchandising manager until recently. Jerry sayi professional management la a neceaally In a large buslness-Ric)biian Gordman employs over 1,800.

In his leisure moments, Jerry plays his French horn ("it's a little bit of therapy") and also collects Israeli stamps (he began shortly after the United Nations esUbllshed the Jewish State). "One of my biggest activlUes la taking my kids back and forth to the Jewlah Community Center," he Joked. He and wife Unda have three. "I'm naUy a (an of the JOC," he said sertoualy.

Let all who are in want (of feUowMp) coitw and celebrate the Passover wttbia," With these wnidB we open the reading of the Haggadab each Passover.

Each year Omahant open their homes and Uielr hearts and invite strangers to riiare tbe Paaawer feast with I them. i Passever is esseotiaUy a holiday that Is fodcbraled in OK borne, with the family. For I tbsae wbo have no family In town, no friends wtam to share the famUiar traditions of the Seder, Passover can be a very kawly time. One family, arrivtag in Omaba Just prior to tbe Passover holiday, beard sbout tbe borne hospitality preyamoffcred^ashr tbe auspices of tbe Jewlab Faaifly Senrice. "With one stnfde phooe call, tbe spectre of a Passover spent in a reataanflt l,ain miles from

home vaoiabed. The warmth and sincerity with which we were wekomed by total strngers gave Passover s new meaning for m. Stnce that time we have always tried to share our Seder with others." "TbiK is no naiaa why anyone should have to spend Passover akme," says Pearl Ytiger, director of the Jewish PamUy Service. "We have many families who wish to offer home hospitality for Pasaevcr Seder. Tte unfortunate thing is tbat so many people are' reluctant to ask... they do not want to impose uponothers." Newoomers, coUego students, single adulU, young marrleds — there is a place for everyone in Omaha at Passover In addition to home hospitality, there is s Seder at the Dr. PhUip Sher Home for the Aged where some of our independent but alone older adulU could go.

': Recently, Mrs. Smith asked :Mr*. Noodell to preaeat a Lpngram on Jewiah cookery to ^Mn. Smith's group, which '. meets monthly to expand the teachers' knowledge of cooking. "We wanted to study the 'background and preparation |of Jewish cooking so as to Irelate better when our Ichlldren talk about it," said Mrs. Noreen Johnson of rArbor HelghU Junior High, lothen added the exposure to Imre fooda help* them learn Imoic about the individual nt and also enables them

to teach their students different diahes. And they Invite their husbands over to eat what Is coobad and to learn what their wives are learning, said Mrs. Smith. An experience In her classroom enhanced the session for Mrs. Smith. She told how one of her students, an Orthodox Jewiah girl, would not tell the Ifcacher why she couldn't take home a pie plate she'd brought from home—or the pie which was in it. The ingreidlents weren't koaher, Mrs. Smith leamedv but only after a girlfriend of the Aral girl explained it to the teacher.

Mrs. Smith aald she understands "how It feels to be different." She said she grew up In a "very fundamentalist church" in Arkansas which did not celebrate Chrlstmaa, but which was located In a town whose population was largely Christmas-celebrating BapUsts.

The fear drives the most ethnic Jews and the most asslmllationist',

and according to- Isaacs, explains why Jews have usually voted liberal despite their economic circumstances. "The upper class Jews are progreislve because they reject what they aee as a narrow, parodilal route to survival—the one cfaoaen by more ethnic, more aequestered Jews," Isaacs writes. "The 'elite.' which moves more in non-Jewish society than the more ethnic Jews, tends to see survival in terms of an America that is open for 'Uberai' progressive government "But this liberal stance does not mean the upper-class 'eUle' is any less defensive or any less protective of Jewish interests than the pions Hasldim with their side curls

who want government aid for their Jewish day schools. Their version of defense only sounds nme polite than that of the Hasldim That is why the pattern of Jews' voting in presldentua dectiotts is so ooncMcnUy 'liberal.'

At (he same time, Isaacs notes (hat many Jews have feared to step into the political arenas and in some areas such as New York, non-Jewish political leaders refused to give them the opportunity. But this situation Is changing as more Jews seek and get elected to major pollUcal offices. At the same

time, Jewish activtsts are now apeaklng out more on purely Jewiah Issues. Isaacs says that up to now K has been the major Jewish organizations that have wielded Jewish influence "and they have wielded whatever influence there was gingerly, as court Jews have always done." But now the Jewish activists have come lo the fore, according to laaaes. He Is particularly impreeaed by Jewish akles to Senators led by Richard Perle, an assistant to Sen. Henry M. Jackson (D Wash.) and Morris Amltay, aastotsnt to Sen. Abraham Rlbicoff (D. Conn.) who "direct Jewish power in behalf of Jewish Interest." (Amltay has now become executive director of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.) Perhaps even more Important is the willingness of Jews with an influence in (he local and state level in (he South, Midwest and West to make their positions known for particularly Jewish issues. Isaacs notestbat ".. ..the teachers, doctors, lawyers, bustaieamen feel, for (he flrst Ume, that it is worth endangering (heir reputaikms for non-Jewish 'objectivity,' (o press—yes, even pushily-for a specifically Jewish cause." He says (his development "appears lo be a major phase of (he Emancipation (hat began in the eighteenth century in Europe and even now la part of the continuing degbettoizing of a people." There Is much more of interest In this book. It Is one of the most important books on the American Jewish scene to appear in a long time.

Isaacs notes that while Jews, as well as others, seek to buy polllical influence on the hical level, on the natkmal level Jews are the least demandbig of any group. He attributes this both to a desire for security as well as a way of paying thto country back (or their proaperity. Isaacs points out that Jews have temled to shy away bnm seeking major elected offices. Only 11 Jews have been elected governors, 92 to the House of Repraeentatives (102 since last November's dectkm and 12 to the V£. Senate (13 shKe November). Instead, Jews have sought to be the men helping polltidant get elected, a role Isaacs sees as parallel to the historic European concept of court Jews.

PaHover U the beginning of the history of tte JewUb ptpfk M a people: with the Exodui from ancient Egypt, the tribe* merged into a nation and the mlllenla-long adventure tiegan. As we read the Haggadah at the Seder service, we retell the story and retrace the steps our forefathers iook on the long road from enslavement to treedom, from the building of cities (or Pharoah to th« building of Israel lor our own^eople. And so we rejoice on Pasaover, happily ahartiig In the ageold success stoiyof our people. And while we reioice over the past, we identify ourselves' with our people's needs today: we rsdedlcate ourselves anew to increased financial aid to Israel, through the United Jewish Appeal and the Israd Bond Campaign; we reaffirm our oonunitnient to Allyah — the highest fprm of personal par-

The Egyptian story Itself Is still Incomplete: modern Egypt has an historic opportunity to add • "happy ending" to the account of our rdationstilpB; she has a chance to maice peace, at long last, with the people she once welcomed happily, then enslaved and ttnaliy released, reluctantly.

... And One From A Jew in Siberia NEW YORK - How does a Jtm, isolated in Siberia, living - In a hostile atmosphere, manage to celebrate a traditional Passover? Alexander Roisman, 48, of Novosiblrsii, hl> wife and two sons, will manage to do so again this year, but thanks only to Inborn stubbornness, intellectual Ingenuity and spiritual power which has characterized Jewish survival ^through the ages. How does he manage without a Haggadah or even a basic knowledge of the Hebrew language? The explanation of his unique struggle Is contained in recent letten addraaied to Dr. Ira Hammerman, formerly of New York, and now a lecturer in bio-physlcs a( Bar-lian, Israel's only religiouslyoriented University. Dr. Hammerman had initiated hit correspondence with Alexander Rolsroan three years ago. " We had to learn evarythbig anew", writes Rolnian, "I had to rcMl the Biite (In Hebrew) with the help of a Hebrew dlctlooary. This wotk took about five years! I did this work alone, wlthoul a teacher, even without HOM parallel text (traMlatkn)... Then I act aut to study the prayers. I undentand them, but I canoot read Ooeotly.

"Though I didn't ever see a Passover Seder, I had restored one for our family. We ceMftrate It every year from 1988.1 struggled with the Haggadah for two months and deciphered It as I could. I was forced to omit incomprehensible passages and to abridge by far the Seder (let God forgive jne for this!) "I compMed my books (the BlUe and the Siddur) of odd and ton) sheets. Now I have the treasure—the Haggadah and the other books which you have sent me." For the present Seder, therefore, the Roltnuns will have a proper Haggadah just recleved from Dr Hammerman and they will be able to conduct a proper Seder for the first lime. But their bsuts will be to Israel. Thajr applied to leave more than three yean ago, but the SavM autboritka dalm that Rolaman oooe bad to "I

and therefore cannot leave. In the mean-time he has lost ] his job as a mechanical I engineer In a toy factory and j is working as a night watchman. His wife, a surgeon. I constantly harassed to herjob. Onoe having beard from Dr,^ Hammerman about the great: tradition of learning at BarIlan University, Rolsmaa wrote that a recurring "dream" was that hl| children—Paul, 13 and 11—should one day study Bar-dan. "But for tk present," he conchides, this ia only our because nobody knows his fati or that of his children when^ they will grow up." But he vows to persist. In| one of his recent letters,! written Is self-taught Hebrew,] he writes: "Let God givaj strength to all of the Jews ( victory in this battle.. .Ottf] arrival in Israel will be M thv| second birth of ourselves.'

Views on Aging ^•UHtfi Note: nm Is cio«nK«l (nm a talk ilna neaotty PWliaooln ptM9 by Ban L«<>, (Urador of Oinaha'i Dr. PhUk) \ SharHomcforttaaAcad. i A number of vital kuue« face Jewry today.

I There Is a growing awareness that the Jewish community |. haa HI disadvantaged poor and Uiey are, for the most part, our > eMeriyciUzens Their - and our-objective Is to enhance their Independent living ttie changing oiitural pattans and the oomUned effect of our urtMn and racial climate rsquirts UB to rethink our actloos , tomrd the Jewtah aged. Ilie problem of the aging bekngi to ' eadiladhridual as we win someday be numbered anwoi them. ^ Studies conducted In several large metropolitan areas i where Jews are oonoentrated have denxmstrated that there is ' e)(tenahw]Mverty and near-poverty among Jewish elderly And yet, we find that this laaue la not among the major : concerns of American Jewry. We know relatively IliUe about aging except that aging U a contimiaus and sequential process of ^' wear and tearof tissues throughout the body. The process starts at Mrth. The building process ; predominates to maturity at wMch stage the forces that build I the body and destroy the body read) as equilibrium. Beyond that ^ point, the rigors of agbigbe^. I As we advance from middle age to later maturity, our appetrance and behavior will continue to change and our eqncitles and resistence to illness will become lower.

The average lUe espectancy Is MMB years, and tai 10 years, barrtai ikamatk dungaa, the Ute expectancy wUl riae to . iMyaan. The aging in today's society are faced with two problema: r tlwIIrM la the attitude of society to the elderly and old age; the I aeoBWi, the atUtude of the elderly to being old. ' Our society has stereotyped our aging by oondamnlng them ' to tailariority. In farms of manpower, the cMMysa a group are L oaoddaredtobe a liability, a bunlen, a drahi on resources.

"On behalf of my parents and myself, I wish to express my sincere gratitude to all the people of Israel for their love, friendship, cards and flowers during my stay In Jerusalem. The doctors, nurses, agd volunteers of Hadassah Hospital have treated me as one of their own. 1 hope to return to Israel one day and meet all of you again." OeJeaoReplogle Ftom Temple Bnunu-O Bulletin, Tucson, Aris.: .. We who live In the United States and never experienced the European tradgedy of the contemporary Israeli crisis have our own version of Jewish trauma. We have to look at ourselves in the mirror and say that we have done all we can to keep the Jewish people alive.


"Rich or poor or In-between, It makes no difference. It Is not the antount one gives, but the truth that one gives what he can afford to give. We struggle to survive because those who can keep us alive are unwilling to do their share. It Is unfair to demean those who give generously by questioning their motives. Those who are generous know that they can survive sodally vdthln the community without gmeroua giving." RabU Joas|ib S. Weitenbaum

Tlw recent disclosure that pressure Irom Arib countries^ particularly Saudi Arabia, has caused our federal government and several large corporations to Impose a pattern of antlSemltlsm on thdir policies Is a disgusting development that is diametrically oppoaed to everything this country Is supposed to atandfor. The Army Corps of Engineers admitted to the Senate Subcommittee on Multinational Corporations thai ft had agreed to Saudi Arabian demands not to altow any Jews to take part In technical and construction projects we have undertaken In that country. In addition, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nal B'rith, which has served as a watchdog over discriminatory practices against all minority groups, provided evidence that at least six private companies and two federal agencies (and possibly a lot more) have been violating the Civil Rights Act of„ 1964 under orders from Arab governments in the hope of obtaining Arab business. . It Is tragic that the federal government, which Itself is responsible for enforcing the 1964 Civil RlghU Act (which forbids all bias based on race, religion, sex, age or national origin), should participate In such discrhnination itself. If some of our "leaders" are so morally bankrupt that they will throw away the U .S. Constitution for fear of toeing some oil money, then they Should t>e Immediately fired and prosecuted for breaking the law. '' The Tribune does not condone any type oC discrimination except that which is based strictly on ability. We condemn discrimination against other minorities for at least three reasons: First, it is immoral; second, it Is illegal; third, from a purely practical point ol view, we should keep In mind that If discriminatory practices against other minorities are successful. It won't tie long before Blacks are similarly victimized. What would happen, for example, if the Sudan, which has been waging a particularly vicious campaign against Its Black Christian minority for almost 15 years, told U.S. firms doing business with them that they must refuse to hire Black Christians? If they see that Saudi Arabia is successful In its campaign against U.S. Jews,, there's no reason why the Sudanese government should not think it could wage a similarly sucoeashil campaign against U.S. Blacks. We should also remember that Saudi Arabia Is the last country In the world In which chattel slavery Is protected and encouraged by law. Children living In poverty are still legally sold Into slavery and prostitution, and those who refuse to comply with their masters' demands are beaten, Jailed or killed. (Continued on Page 32)

In addition, profit from oU removed from the area since occupation would be handed over to Egypt. Naturally, Israel will not risk her security for the sake of Arab appeasement. Avriel says that, while Israel shall be "flexible and generous, guarantees bvro Egypt are necessary." A stamp of both "respecting and suspecting" wHI govern present and future Israeli dealings with the Arab world. Israel cannot disband her army nor will the country cease to produce and procure Implements (or defense, Avriel said.

Finally, Avriel demanded that Jews the world ever demoBstrato their soUdsrity. "We must reallie WE ARE ONE. By strengthenbig our Jewish ties, we strengthen our • Judaism, intensify our MentUy, and deter the foUy of another war." Israel Is entering a "period of tough bargahilng now." Avriel voiced his concern that Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, currently adbig as Intermediary between Israel and Egypt, may be called back to the United SUtes for other duties. "Israel's position Is a precarious one. There Is no El Dorado, no magic wand, no shortcut IsrasI Is interested not in glory, but in peace; not in saving face, but in saving lives.

Two aceoes of the recent Bureau of Jewish Edueatkn retreat When Shabbat was over we had Sbalosli Sendot and Havdalah and Saturday evenhig all Ibe campers were involved with a Purtm project. Some of the kids baked bamentaahen under the dlrectkm of Judy Brown, Jody Hurwitz and Edith Prusak; some of the kids prepared boxes with the help of Brian PIdgeon and Bernle Waltman; and tbe others decorated the boxes and prepared Purim cards directed by Gall Goll^ and Carol Swartz. Then the boxes were filled and gift wrapped and sent to every rasfclent of the Iowa Jewish Home. Late ai night we bad the movie "The Israelis" based on Amos Alon's book and a layla tov program dfriendship circle). These activities provkled an educatioaal experience for the 54 students involved. The counsekxi were froqi Drake and Still Colleges. The location was the 4-H Camp In Madrid, Iowa.

WhUe the shcth through eigblh graden were at the retreat, tbe youngn children were vary active with a pst^ectof their own. Under tbe guldanoa of Mrs. PhylUs Qrtran, Ow stadsots hnndit IMltodi Manot (gilt piatea of hammtartw, tiult and eandiss) to oidir membsn of the Des Moines Jewish community. Thsae people are without family so the children's lore is much wanted, needed and appradatad. The fourth and fifth graden had to contact the person to

whom he would be giving the MIshloach to. The Idea was for the child to reach out and touch the hearts of our elderiy Jewish community. Hopefully the frtoidships will be continued throu^Mut the rest of the year. It is apparent by the activities of the weekend of Feb. 21-23 that the chUdien are very much enthused by the happenings of the Bureau. One girt commented that she really felt for the first time at the Retreat that she was part of the group. At the Retreat, each cabin chose a

recipient of tbe best all-around camper. TtMugh the various retreats and activities, many new friends have been gained. The purpose of Hebrew education is also to make new acquaintances and experience new and different things. The students are happy with their work this year and they are the best reflection of a Job well done by the Bureau staff. To enhance upon this Idea, an elderly Des Moines Jew wrote In to the Bureau, "Thayoungsters at the Bureau made my Purtm very happy."

Our Warmest

DBS MOINES - The Passover season will be ushered In at lifereth Israel In Des Moines with an unusual Interfaith musical event on Sunday evening, March 23 at 8 p.m. It will be the first midwest performance of a new Passover Oratorio, "Haggadah - A Search tor Preedom." The event wUl be cftsponsored by Tlfereth Israel Synagogue and St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Participating In the presentation will be Cantor Plnchas Spiro Bf leader-soloist, the combined adult and youth choniaes of TUereth Israel snd St. Paul's, as well as an orchestra consisting of musicians from the Des Moines Symphony under the direction of Paul H. Dleke. The program will also Include Rabbi Barry D. Cytron with introductory commentary and The Rev. WUIIam L. Jacobs, Rector of St. Paul'a, aa narrator HM musle for the new oratelo— a modem version ol the H^gadah - WM ooBopoaad tqr Dr. Morten CMd, protaaor o( muaic at Naaaoo OaOagB ta Maine and (he son ol a canlar. Ihe text adaptattott la by Cantor Harold Urnsr of Syracuse, N.Y., In whoaa oonpvgatlon the work was framtarad last Mardi. The oratorio was peHormed only one other time, a few months latier, at the Cantors

Assembly convention where an audience of over SOO Cantors gave tbe oratorio an unprecedented 10-mlnute standing ovation. Critics have hailed the oratorio as "one of the nwst meaningful musical works on the theme of Passover, the holiday of freedom... aure to become a favorite daailet" One of the commenta concerning the music was that "it Is beautifully melodious simply Irreslstable even upon first hearing." Tbe adaptation of the teat is baaed on the structure and themes of the traditional Haggadah, but It includes updated material which make it particularly relevant to our time. Iliere is a special emphasis in it on the univaraallty of man's quest for freedom — freedom from physical and spiritual slavery; freedom from hate, hunger and want. Many of the tradlUooal aoop such aa "Adir Hu", "Dayeou" and "Chad Gadya", have been given a modem Interpratatiaoa as weO as catdqr ntw malodlea. One of the dr«natic hl#iU|0its Is a chons aMch describes the atubidaot the Eerptlaiw towards the braaUtaa, and It strifcea an oddly familiar chofd: "See how many! See how great! They're here! They're tbercl You find them everywhere I

CmarPfaKiiasSpbro These people are a threat to our existence! "See how many! See bow great! Tbe Jobs! The money! These strangers have It all! These people are a threat to allEgyptlana!" These hysterical lines, which echo the words uttered by bigots throughout history, are strangely reminiscent of the recent remarks of a certain General, a spokesman said. The Interfaith Committee that assisted Cantor Spiro In bringing this event to Des Moines consisted of: Rabbi Barry D. Cytron, The Rev. WillUm L. JacotM (Rector of St. Paul's), Miss Suzanne Peterson (assistant to the Rector), Elliot Brody (president of Tllereth Israel), Gerald Engroan, Abe Rosenfeld and Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Rubin. This marks the first such Interfaith event in Des Moines. Tlfereth Israel Synagogue and St. Paul'a (Continued on Page 30)

Tttt booklet, "How to Help ChUdKo Mourn the Um of Tbeir Father", was originally tuggetted by Amcricaa |wychok>ci(t Dr. Alice Ginott, the wife of the world (Mnout child ptycbok«ist, (he late Dr. Halm Ginott. She brought her butband for burial to Kibbutz Shaar HagoUm in Novembw I97S^ aiid during her own days of mourning she also shared the national grief and mourning for the many Israeli soldiers who gave their lives for tbeir coutnry. Dr. Ginott was troubled by the real need to help mothers and young chiUren who suffered the loss of a husband and a father, to mourn their loss together. She approached Dr. Norman Scbanin, principal of The David YeiUn Hebrew Teachers CoUege in Bet Hakerem, ' AraHtaB, her husband's alms mater, and suggested that the ^ODBUI MBdMlakr the pubUotioo of a booklet oc this sensitive .M*iect. Recognizing (he need ior nuterial on (his subject for ' teadiers of (he very young, the College agreed to puUiafa the booklet. The booklet was prepared for the use of teachers in tbeir work with young children btween the ages of 2 and 7, using the '.language of the young child: the language of play and storytelling. The UlustratioBs in the booklet are simple, childHke black and white sketches done by a lyyear-old girl, whose mother had been a member of Dr. Haim Ginott's guidance group for parents for Die last lo years. The first part of the booklet waa written by Dr. Alice GinoU and the second consists of a lengthy quote from Hain Ginott's book, "Between Parent and Child". "A child shMdd iM be deprived of his right (o grieve aad to mourn,!' wrote Dr. Haim Ginott. "He should be free to feel sorrow' and the loss of someone loved. The child's humanity is deepened, his character is ennobled, when he can lament the end of life and love."

The clothing store owner waits on everyone "with iinlMard of courtesy and decorates his show windows with Easter bunnies and Christmas decorations at the proper season."

IntaUibUlty, none of Pius X'a successors have changed the Vatican's tusic approach to the Zionist ideal and latterty to the laraell SUte. In 1187, aa a result of the SbDay War, most of the Cbristiao Holy plaoea Ml into laraaU haods. The Vatican Mt tt had to pntwrt Its totarests in Palestine by establiihini direct contact with Israd. Accordingly, during the fighting of June litl, the Pope's envoys maintained doaa oooftaet with the Israeli Ambassador in Rome, Ehud Avriel, urgtaig upon Urn tbe Vatican'a ooncsra as to Ills aafityofthsHolyPiaota. The Yom Klppur war seems to have somewliat soured Uie Vatican'a attitude toward Israel. There are many examples to illustrate the Vatican's new tone: Its delegates In Jerusalem

demonstrate a stiff and diiliy attitude to Israeli officials; the Pransiacan Informatloa Center distributed a GreekCatholic memorandum about Archbishop Hllarlon Capuccl's aentence (Capucci was aentenced to 12 yean imprisonment Jn November (or gun-running for El Fatah); the Vatican Itself issued a critical statement about the trial, calling it an additional cause of tension in the Middle East and refraining from any kind of denouncennent to ttie crlnne committed by Capucci; the Pope received a representative of the PLO. These exanqries—and there are other*—show that the Vatican has not abandoned its well-known realpolitik conception. The Vatican continuea to adapt its political attitude according to its Bsaeasinent of the realistic ctianges in circumstances.

Is the proposed demographic study of Omaha's Jewish community "which should be done by the middle of this year." The Center lor Applied Urban Heseardi at the University of Nebraaka at Omaha Is expected to do UK study. Members of the demographic shidy committee are Rscky Newman, Dr. Martin Wolf, and Donald I. Nogg and Noddle. The UNO group will devlae a questionnaire to learn where and how Omaha's Jewish population lives, how many young and elderly there are, what tlie needs are, and what its members' attitudes are towards Uie non-Jewish community and what they feel is the attitude of non-Jews to the Jewish community. The Federatkm board supports the demographic survey Idea. Related to the survey is tlie current quest for a young leadership format. Noddle succeeded last year in generating a high degree of enthusiasm among atxHit 40 young Omaha Jews. But he'allke the man wtosnagi a whale with a llshing rod-now that he's got 'em, what's be going to do with 'em? "We're somewhat isolated here from ttie pockets of Judaism—New York City and San Francisco-and we've got only ihnited reaources,.. The San Francisco young leadership program would make your eyes pop out-they've got institutes and speaken and study groups, but tliey've also got all the schools and bistihJtkms right there.

But tiiere's always room lor more Involvement, he indicated. "If you think things are bad and want to make Ibem better. If you really want to work, call me up and give me your name and phone number. We'llputyou to work." The Noddles belong to Temple Israel,-although Harlan became a Bar Mitzvah at Beth El Synagogue. "I can daven like anybody else.

The truth Is that even Greater Israel - including Sinai and Golan — compares in size with her Arat> adversaries as Corsica compares with Prance. II ia the AratM who are gorged with territory, not the Jews. If we take aU-Palestine, omitting Sinai (that Is, larael plus West Bank plus Gaza plua Golan) the area cornea to Just over lo.OOO square miles, leaa than half the size of Lake Michigan.

Statistics (for 1«?0) Indicate otherwise. The number of tnhaMtanIa per aqaare mUe in Libya Is 2.75, Saudi Arabia 7, Muscat and Oman 7, ahd South Yemen 10.

Non-Jewish Observances 'Are Caused by Inertia' PHILADELPmA - Tbe National Women's Division of the American Jewish Congress heard at ila recent ooovention that the high rate of Intermarriage In tbe Jewish oonununity - esltmaled at one in every three marriages — dM not neceaaarlly produce a iHmtnnthin In Jewlshness or JewMobeervfoce. Or. Blanche Serwer, prolMsor of psychology at Boston University, told some SOO convention delegatct that many Jewish couples Hving In predominantly Christian environments because of achool or job requlrementa took part In Christian celefaratkins such as Christmas, instead of Jewish festival like Hanukkah, "out of Inertia." At the same time. Dr. Serwer said, she knew of in-

terrellgious and even Interracial marriages where the non-Jewlsh partner "took pains to observe Jewish tradlUan" and "clearly Intended to give Ute children of tlie marriage a Jewish upbringing." A recent Jewish population study showed that in interrellgloui marriages where tbe wife wss Jewtdi, nearly all the children were raised as Jews. Where the husband was Jewish, according to the study, 63 per cent of the children were being raised as Jews. The net effect of these family patterns, the study concluded, waa that there was no major "loss " of Jewish children !iuch as might be implied by a posiibie drifting (0 another rel^0ous view.

The figure for Israel Is 374 inhabitants per square mile (agala, using 1970 figures). Assuming that immigration continues to flow In and the number of inhabitants reaches seven million persons by the turn of the century (Including one mUlton AratM), population density In Israel will then be m persons per square mile. Arguments have broken out already inside this country over the disposal of the piteoualy limited acreage available. Melr Zorea, chief of ttie Lands Administration, opposes point-blank the Minister ol Housing's plan to take over 7,500 acres of agricultural land for housing during the next five years. Zorea points out that the country has only 1.4 dunams of farmland per head of tlie populatkm as It is, and that ia a minimum in his view. Vet It is only a matter of time before the 7,SO0 acres and much more is used up - to house tbe multitude of Jews wiw are waiting patiently In Russia for permission to Immigrate to Israel. Ihat Is why the Arabs devliMi the New "Psiestlnlan" • eihnlcUy. iTibey have territorial soverelpity over a continent Mgger than aU Europe, at least the Palestinians can be described aa a lamHnrklng natlanaUty. Butthen, where does this end? Then Is no reason why Arafat ahouM not create a Gi^.O. neit - GaUlean Uberatlon Organliatlon.

Recognitfam of Palestinian, as against Arab, rights means acceptance of the following principle: that wherever Arabs dwell, the Arabs are sovereign. The population of the West Bank and Gaza together in 1970 was 965,000, or 0.88 per cent of the population of the Rabat powers.

By Bouinie Untunan 4lhOrad0. Both brad "Cave of Riches" li Uie story of two boys vflw were watching their goati In Palestine tn 1947. One of the gpats wandered away Into (he foothills nearby. The txiys went off to look for It. In the side of the htll they taw a big black hole. One of the twya threw a rock Into It and they heard a loud cradi. Later, they crawled Into the hole. They found what had crashed was a big urn. In other urns that were not broken, they found scrollg. Ihe boys took the scrolls cut to •how them toa ahetk. They all travded to Bethlehem to try to KU them. They sold them to an Arehbiahop, who sold them to a professor. Theprofeaioritudied Uiem and fbund that theymre very ancient, biblical writings. Then the protaaor and the boys went to the cave again and the pnrfesaor then began to dig up tbecave, hunting (or more ancieirt things.. In the cave, they found not only the uma and scrolls, but coins and other ancient things. The acndls they (ound are Icnown as the Dead Sea Scrolls. Today they are worth over $200,000,000. I thought this was a very


Intersttlng book. It was Uke a mystery adventure In a way, butiuiowing It wasa true story makei it even more exciting. The author's way of writing made me feel like I was right Utere with them, discovering ttieae ancient things that are so valuable. Anyone who likes exciting adventure stories would enjoy this true story. But because it Is about the ancient Dead Sea Scrolls, it makes a Bible story into an exciting mystery. MelKrtttIn, Sadie Rote.

By Naomi MltcfaeU 1th Grade, Beth El Main Characters: K'tonton Mrs. Levy Shitnshon President of Israel It's atMut a boy named K'tonton who was no bigger than your thumb. He always wanted to go to Israel. One day his aunt, Mrs. Levy, came over so his parents could take ber to UK airport. K'tonton climbed Into the suitcase. And was shipped to Israel. When he got to the hotel he Jumped out. It was Simchat Torah and he got stuck on a tjoy's foot. The boy's name Is Shimshon. After it was over tlie boy found him and took him home. His room was a cigar box. Shinuhon was his best friend till he went to Jerusalem. During the week of Peiacb the Prvtidtnt of larMl said, "Anyone who has an idea on bow to make the tree nurMfleil^etter cone aods|)eak tome." He had an klea. So he went to tee him. When he got there, he started to talk. But the president could not see anyone. Finally he did. lie thought It was a good idea to let him take care of a nursery. So he did. He was touring the trees when he heard on a radio there wasn't enough water for the trees. He thought to himself, the trees will die." He set of to find water. He met a lizard who helped him find water. Then his parents found him gone, and came to get him.

Prank, Anoe. tht Diary tt a Yoia«Glil. Random House, 1962 BySheiylTateinian <tta Grade, Temple Israel This book was Anne Frank's Diary from June 14, 1942 August I, 1944 wlien site was taken to a concentration camp and killed there. It tells of the two Jewish families that went Into hiding during the war, their lives and everything that happens to them until Uiey are captured by the Gestapo. When I read tiie words "concentration camps" I didn't believe it. I had a lump in my throat the size of a mountain. This book has done a lot for me. I've learned to have courage and faith - who knows, maybe I'll start a diary of my own someday. If I do I tiope it will be as good as Anne's. 1 have told you many good points but everyone and everything has its bad points. I didn't like the fact that it was bi first person but all diaries are. I was also very disappointed everyone said It was extremely good — It was good but not as good as they said. Kesael, Sim Hanfed at Awdiwtts. Stein and Day, 1972. ByMarcyWaz 7th Grade, Beth Israel This book is very Interesting. It contains some very Interesting facts that opened my eyes to what really happened to my fellow brothers not too long ago. I never really realized what they went through. 1 now understand what my brothers live with every day. The book is about a man that lived through torture and many other gory things. I'm glad I didn't and don't have to live with or through that sort of thing. The man is very lucky he is all ve today. The only reason he Is alive Is because when he was hanged the rope broke and they were superstitious about rehanglng a person twice. If you would like to find out how he got out and find out how he ended up read this book. I recommend this book for a student In junior high to senior high school. It Is available at the Jewish Community Center

library. It was written by Sim Kessel and I recommend the book very highly. Forsyth, Fredtrlck. Tbe ril>.VU[tiigPre«,lt72. By Bartara FraMenraldi ttta Grade, Beth Ea By now most people have forgotten what happened during the time of Worid War II, the time when Adolf Hitler came to power. Hitler had a plot to exterminate all Jews from the face of the earth. After World War II, all men who conrunltted war crlmea were wanted. The book I have read is called the "Odessa File" by Fredrick Forsyth. Fredrick Forsyth has written many books, and I think this book is the most interesting. The "Odessa File" tells about the persecution of the Jews through a diary written by a man called Soloman Tauber. He tells how his wife was killed along with many other people. Soloman Tauber's diary tdls bow he lived twenty yean after tbe war, Just to aee the death of the man wtM killed his wUe, At the end of bis diary, be writes that be la sorry be never got revenge on that man, wboae name waa Edward Rochmao. A young reporter named Eeter Miller reads the diary and makes up his mind to try to find Edward Rochman a-id to penetrate the organization called the Odessa. He is told by a man in the Department of > War Crimes that to penetrate the Odessa be must find the forger, the man who forges passports and gives new names to men who committed war crimes. Eventually he penetrates the Odesi>. and finds Rochman. I think this Is a fabulous book; but to me personally, it is more than fabulous, because my parents were In the concentration camp. For ttiem, it is hard to explain to me what happened. Also, moat of my relatives were killed by the Nazis. 1 also feel the whole world should know what happened to the Jews, innocent women and children.

I wai bom o( a Jewish immigranl father and a firslgeneralloii American Jewish moihn', raised as if she were slill in Europe. I am typical of those college-educated. Jewishly Ignorant persons whose numbers are altogether too large. My religious education is the result ot the frustrated efforts or an immigrant ' teacher who, though fluent in Yiddish and Hebrew, spoke English poorly. I had very Utile understanding of Yiddish and none of Hebrew. My

father spoice four langiages fluently, and English without an accent, as did my mother. My mother knew Yiddish but rarely used anything but English when talkiitg with my father. So I did not letm the language that could have tied me more closely to my Jewish heHlage. I Haven't ever really practiced my rellglea — having appeared la the synagogne waly (or ny Bar Mitivah and oner a year o« Yom KIppur. Nevertheless I ' caaaUcr myiclf a Jew aad Ukc pride la the Israelis' accompliskintnti. What hasaintli*-^do with fyT"Weil, for W Ilrsl lime in my life 1 had a profound Jewish religious experience — at leaal I so consider it. It happened at a Shavuoi service in the chapel at Northport Veterans Administration The previous day the Jewish Chaplain al the hospital invited me to the service. The bail was that afterwards the vohmteer ladies of the Long Island JWB Committee would serve gefilte fish, blintzes and sour cream, coffee and cake. My religious education is weak, my knowledge of

Hebrew and YiddlBh is sorely lacking, but my palate is equal to anyone's when it comes to Jewish cooking. On this point — ny taste for food —iny parents left an indelible maii. Promptly al 10 I presented myself at the chapel fai hospital pajamas, bathrobe, and slippers — a proper attire under the circuRUlances. One other man from my building and unit was similarly dressed. The targe chapel room was occupied by about K other resident veterans dressed In assorted ctothes, mostly illfitting. (1 shall call my unitbuddy Joe and use fictional names for all the others as well.) It suddealy slmck nc that except far Joe and tat, the four JWB voiantcer women; the Chaplain and hii son — also a rabbi — and a imiU nam her of the other cMgregaata, all the others prcseat were raftering Iroa asental ailments. This became more appareat as the lervlcn progressed. I later learned that oome of tkese •wntal patieals were loagtlaie rtsideato at tke kasplUl. The Chaplain opened the servicei. Al once one of the

patients, Harry, strode forth and al the altar took up the peailion of Cantor. Harry is a burly, broad-ihouldered, heavy-set man in his fifties. There he stood, his yarmulke on the back of his head, his prayer shawl across his shoulders, as commanding as any Cantor who ever stood before the faithful. In keeping with the words, "sins both the praises and glorici of the bord," Harry opaned his mouth and in a loud, shouting voice sang the hymns and prayers. Harry's singing is unique. The shout can be heard for a mile and his retarded speech comes out slowly, haltingly. Yet, through it all, Harry's chant was authentic — al least to my untrained ear It sounded similar to the chanting I had heard on my rart visits to a synagogue on the High Holy Days. Somewhere In the past Harry had had a good religious Hebrew education. Harry sang Joyfully and shouted with ail his strength. The Chaplain, wilk great skill moved the service ahwg. "L«uia'. How about the nest psalm? Jake! Woald you Uke la hold the TarsbT" All Ikb wUh mnnbig eommealaries, loa! 1 was caught up in the activities. "Morty! Come up and help in the reading of the Torah!" With beating heart I joined, and with much assiilance from the Chaplalnts ton 1 got through the Ucsaings. He did the Torah-reading himself. My buddy Joe had a blessing said for his new grandson. Before I he service ended, everyone present had played a part. Ever BO often, one of the patients would gel out of band, but the Chaplain, with studied indifference — almost nonchalantly — would bring them under control quicUy. < Continued on Page 39)

Geneva Versus Geneva HAIFA - Against the background of Henry Kliflnger'i ooe-man diplomatic mlsilant tn the MkkOe Eaat to the constant poasit>Ulty o( a peace con(erance ii) Geneva. Indeed, the veiy word "Geneva" Is sufficient to conjure up a whole bag of poaslblllUes which may be viewed optimistically or pessimistically, depending one one's point o( view. Everyone In Israel mentions Geneva, but there is absolutely no clarity as to what is meant, or what may be expected. If the Israelis themselves are confused and uncertain, how much more this must be true of oiwervers and friends abroad. Hence this attempt at a simplified analysis. Political laadtra tn Israel fall Into two categories. There are those who would like to avoid going to Geneva—and there are those who are willing to go, eagerly almost, but the latter divide Into two groups whose reasons are diametrically opposed. larMli* who kwk Omm* with auiptck who win IM rapraaentad ttHTi.

"Well," said Haber, "my wife hasalltUe arthritis." One of his wives, said the Arab, had arthritis, another had the falling lickiiefs. Then they discuned the rising price of cheese, why the milk wasn't as good at it used to be and similar topics. About midnight, Haber said, "Listen, I've got to go home. How much rent?" Then Haber said, the Arab asked an amount that was staggering and ^ter all this talk of "you want It —It's yours." We recalled these stories readfaig in the New Yort Thnes about the concern In some quartets about the gIfU being lavished by the now enriched Arabs on some visitors.

the tngartance of hi* work. Garber la convinced that the united action on the part of Soviet Immigrant lawyers together with intemaUonal lawyer* wlU result In additional political ammunition to be used in paving the way to freedom for Soviet Jewry. "Together, we can convince the world that Jews are the victims of harrassment and discrimination In the Soviet Unkm. We can see, by the nature ol these trials, that there is a return to the Stalin Urn. "The System pursues a policy which was the policy of the Stalin regime. We must get this point across together. All that we Soviet Jews know and aay, is of no use in the struggle, unlets we can enlist the support of the world.'' To fan the fire of memory against the complacency which can set m under a democratic regime, Garber gravitates between the Tel Aviv headquarters of the Soviet Immigrants and B'nal B'rith, where he presides over a chapter of Soviet Immigrant members who appropriately operate under the name of Sbalach et Ami-Let My People Go.
