Shirley Golditeln, cochalrmao of the Omaha Committae for Soviet Jewry which organlaed the proteit that alao featured memcben o( OmalH't Lltfaoanlan and Ciechoilovaltian corolaunitles, said she will write one lattar and has been told by othen—including some not involved in the demooatrallon-that they also wiU write. The Joslyn official Is Laurence R. Hoaglund, who is aarving as managing director of the museum. The demonstration and confrontation took place prior to Sunday's Joslyn Chamber Music program which featured the Russian Borodin Quartet. Mrs. Oolditala eitad •pteUtealljr tk* words to "tha to UwrnbyHoaghnd.




Mrs. Goldstein said the protest was not against the Quartet's presence, but rather against what she deacribed in her handbills as "the Inhumane performance of thoae In the Soviet Union who threaten with death or imprtnnment Jews, Ukranians, CaedwalovakiansandPolaa." She explained the objective of the denKNUtratlons by sUting, "When artlsU return to the Soviet Union after tours, they are debriefedquestioned by soviet authorities about what went on on the tour, the reactions of the people whom the artists encountered This time when they go back, they can say that the people of the Midwest United States-in addition to thoae in the Eastern U.S.-are alao protesting Soviet prac-

Howard Weinstein, Plains States regional director of the B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation Lroague and executive director of the Jewish Federation's Community Relations Committee, told Hoaglund that there apparently had been some misunderstanding with the city because the demonstrators had utilized "all the proper channels kr securing permisskMi." Sgt. G. Berry, the Omaha policeman In charge of the detail assigned to Joslyn Sunday, told the Jewish Press he dlsaiiadfid Hoaglund from havbig the polk» remove the demonstrators.

People advocate It, however. But," he continued, "while you are going through this negotiation for an overall settlement, as a third option, you might have an interim negotiated settlement between two of the parties, such as Israel and Egypt." While the President said, "We have not made any decision yet," it appeared to observers that the third option is the one the U S. still hopes to achieve, prior to making Arm diplomatic, military or economic commitm«nts to Israel.

WASHINGTON (JTA)-The national director ot B'nal B'rith Hillel Toundatlons took issue with the view that Arab propaganda, accelerated with petro-dollars. Is making antiIsrael or anti-Jewish inroads on American college campuses. Dr. Norman Frimer told Hillel's national commission at its annual meeting here that "such dire conclusions, already given credence by some spokesmen in the Jewish community, are still unwarranted fears."

An avid reader of hiatory books, biographies and autobiographies - "the laat book I read was about Dr. Chriatlan Bamaard, the heart sinfBon, a wonderful book called -One Ufe'" - Edith Graetz has lived a life full of Its own historical aspects. Coming with her father and mother, Martin and Golda Trustin, to Omaha from Chicago 78 years ago. Eolith graduated grade school and then went to bualneas college — making her apparently one of the first Jewish girls In Omaha ever to attend such a school. She became a stenographer "and 1 worked for the first bigauto dealer In Omaha - H. E. Frederickson. who was one of the first to sell big cars here.

He made them pave the streets because be wanted the people to have something smooth to ride on." She worked for Frederickson from 1902 to 1905, when she married Leon GraeU. Later, Leon and Edith were to become charter members of Beth El, where Edith still att«ds Friday night services regulariy. Today she can point with pride to her son Marion, an auto parts dealer in Lincoln, and his wife, Marjory, whose son, Michael, is a rabbi In Israel; to daughter Isabel, California resident whose daughter, Judy, l> a UCLA graduate; to son Saul M. and wife Esther of Omaha and their three children (Mariln, graduate of Massachusetts

Institute o( Technology, now living in London; Anabel, graduate of Indiana University and Boston College, now teaching voice in Lexington, Mass. and Linda, an artist, -tnarried, living in Houston, Tex.); and to Janet, wife of Samuel Berek of Fremont and their two children (Jonathan, earning his medical degree from John Hopkins and Joyce, a Nebraska graduate, housewife and mother living in Lincoln). Bdtth came from a (ttnlly with arran children (thre tUbm and OM brotber).

BwMtnkig are her brother, Hairy Tniatln and a aiatar, Mn. rtiada Bramaon, wMim «( Jack both of whom lire In Omaha. Edith says that "aa long as my eyes hold out, I'll read" — but she won't read today's magazines ("they make me sick, they're terrible"; "the 'new morality is what I call the 'old immorality' "). She likes to read about "real people, people who amounted to something in this world." She says young people "should learn to be responsible, learn to be real mki and women ... Everything today

Is so mediocre. We need great people to bring something to the younger people, to Inspire them." She said she Is "heartsick about Watergate. I think this is the most wonderful country ever. It's the only country that has done something for our Jewish people, given them a chance to sivow what they can do." Isabel says her mother goes out for wallis "every day — we have to really work to keep her inside when II rains. She does needlepoint, goes to concerts, has luncheons for her bridge groups."

Their assignment was carried out wtth great love and devotion and they have done all that can be done to welcome the Portugeis family and to make them feel comfortable and among friends. In Jewish traditMm, the mltxvah they performed is known as Pklyaii Sb'vuyim, the mttxvah of the redemption of captives. They have literally helped set free an Imprisoned family and have given them a new lease on life. Jewish law views this mitzvali as among Judaism's most sacred acts. Soon another Russian family will be arriving in our community and yve all ea^rly look forward to their coming. The Committee on Soviet Jewry will again give us reason to be proud. Their work will reflect upon our entire community There is, however, one aspect of the committee's work which needs lo be defined in order to avoid a contradiction of what should >8^,^ goals and !••••«« <

bringing In these Russian families. I refer to the ahopplng trip that was arranged on Saturday "to get Vladik some school clothes—blue jeans, tennis shoes, and a cowboy hat." HK quaatton lltat Buuqr are aaklng la: Wlqr on SatonlayT WoiMat taiday have bean Jattaafood? In the case of the Portugeis family, there is a special dinwnsion to this question. They have come from a country where Jewa have experienced spiritual genocide. Soviet authorities have systematically diecked off all religioui life and religious exprcsaon. For over 50 years there has been a crud suppression of any fOrm of Jewish Identlficatioa. The Jewish community of America has not remained silent. Tt has repeatedly railed Its voice In pn)test >igainst these acts of religious persecution, against the ckMlng of synagogues and the prohibition of religious practice. Letters were written and telegrams were sent Jn the hope of alleviating their plight. Matzo packages, prayer books and prayer shawls were sent to Jews in Russia, so that religious expression will remain alive among tl^ Aad aow one of these faraUlea lives In Omaha, We thank God lor the privilege and opportunity that Ja ours. We can DO* fiU the gaps In their lives sod kindle a rellgkNis flame in their hearts. Wouldn't il have been more to our credit to have taken them to a synagogue service on Friday night and on «. » »m » »

Saturday morning and left the shopping for Sunday? Wouldn't it have been more In keeping with our concerns on behalf of the Jews of Russia? We've not yet met our responsibilities by merely supplying them with food and clothing and the comforts of American society. As Jews, we must also introduce them to Jewish life, of which they have been so totally deprived for all their years. Otherwise, we are merely perpetuating the very evils of which we accuse the Soviet Union. While we dm't want to Impose any form of religious life upon them. It Is our MCf^o expose them to rrilgknis life They will eventually make their own choice, but while we are helping la their adjustment and micgration, we should not withhold from Uiem the rellgkHis experience. It Is our opportunity of savbig souls for Judaism. II is early enough lo make the necessary correction. Isaac Naiialt,RaM)l B«tb land Synagaeie

Our Man in Israel

by Cart Alport

Every Israeli Should Learn Arabic —^HAIFA - Jewish pupils studying Arabic In Israel's school system have Increased In number from 20,000 eight years ago to 50,000 today The figure is not one to be proud of. Most of these pupUs get Uttle more than a smattering of the language for a relatively short period. Only 20 schools In the whole country have Arabic departments where the tongue Is taught intensively. The arguments in favor of teaching Arabic should be obvious. This little country Is surrounded by millions of AralHe-tptaking neighbors When peace comes we must be able to establish normal relations with these neighbors — diplomatic, commercial, cultural. That can be done successfully only In their language. And if a state of hostility continues It Is no less Important that our people know the tongue of the enemy. Is enough being done to encourage the study of Arabic? Vaacov Eyal, chief Inspector fo^ Arabic in the "Mlnhitry of Education, told me of what the Ministry is doing In the last year or two, 90 schooli have begun teaching colloquial Arabic in the fifth and sixth grades. To make it easier for the children to learn the pronunciation the text is given in Hebrew letters. Geula Ootan, flenr mraiiwr o( tte KoMMt trom the Ukud party. It not Mtisfled "We're in this ooUBby to stay," Ae told DM, "and everyone here ibould learn Arabic. The teartitng of the languagt abould be made oompulaory tram the ftrat grade In Bchool, together with a (uU scale course in AraMc literature and ctiltare ai well aa knowMftoflalam." At the very least, she (hinka, H ahoOld be conaidered no less Important than English No one should be permitted to

graduate from high school without a mastery of Arabic. The provision of teachers for an expanded Arabic program would be no problem, Eyal feels. Both he and Miss Cohen see in the Arabic population a k>gical source of qtiallfled personnel once they are given adequate professional training. Especially among the Druzes, Miss Cohen adds. A high ranking army officer with whom I spoke said that the military authorities are also interested in stimulating study of Arabic, and efforts are made to encourage the best of the youth to specialize in that subject at high school. Mlaa Cohen's argument that the Jews are here to atay aeems lo have been accepted acroaa the border a* well, for Egypt has recently embarlMd on a broad program for teaching Hebrew, and Jordan la making similar plana. Even If preaent rootWatkxi is not neceaaarOy friendly, it coukl wdl be that these cultural features may yet serve aa bridgeheads to a brighter tomorrow In the Middle Eaat. In the terrorist raid on Tel Aviv's Savoy Hotel last month, the heroine was an Israeli girl, Cochava Levy. She was the only one of the civilian hostages who could converse with the terrorists In their language, and she served as intermediary during the first crucial stages of the Incident. It should not require a' dramatic event like this to underline the fact that aa a matter of national Interest every Israeli should learn Arabic. This is a long range goal, and the Israel Government should lose no further time in moving lo have the subject made compulsory In all schools.


'Soul-Trapping' of Jews Not Justified; Christian Historian Rejects Conversion NEW YORK - Soultrapping of Jews by Christians is not justified by any passage in the New Testament and such efforts at conversion should be stopped. In fact. In the Bible "the plan of salvation expands outward from a Jewish base; It does not contract away from that center," and Christians could themselves benefit from adopting some aspects of Hebrew worship — from which Christianity evolved. These points are made by Franklin H. Llttell, a leading Christian historian, in his new book, "The Crucifixion of the Jews," published by Harper & Row. The author of many books, Dr. Llttell teaches at Temple University. He served as chairman of the Theological Working Party on "Israel: the People, the Land, the State" for the Nattonal Council of Churches and the National Council of Catholic Bishops from 1970 to 1973. "What is It if not prcaumptkxis for us to aasume that'the Jews,' called by God to be carriers of history, should deaiie to blend into the gentUe world?" asks Dr. Uttell.

"Clirlstlans Aould afllnntbe right of the Jewlali people to self-Identity and selfdeflnitkm. No brotherhood can develop if one partner is constantly endeavoring to boxln the other party. "The murder of six million Jews under Hitler by baptlied Christians, from whom membership in good standing was not (and has not been) withdrawn, raises the most Insistent question about the credibility of Chriatlanlty. The churches have not dealt with

the truth that the mark of Cain is on their foreheads. "Since earliest Christians all were Jews, Jesus, Paul, and Peter would have perished at Auschwitz. To many of Its own members, Christianity has t>ecome Incredible because of the action and Inaction of Christians In the Holocaust. "It is we who must change," he emphasizes. "The same wicked lies about the Jews which made the Holocaust possible are still taught In

semlnariea and by theological faculties." Dr. Llttell recommends thai the Christian annual calendar Include a special service memorializing the Holocaust victims, so that Christian congregations can "come tq^ terms with lis meaning." While the Christians preach "the suffering of the cross," the Jews have lived It, he points out, and they have found ttieir resurrection in the reestablislunenl of Israel as a refuge.

TliU promise Is regarded as a basic part of the covenant that exIsU between the Jewish people and the Aimi^ty. QUBmON: Wbgr doM JiwWi faradlilan nqnin ttiat OM MMMMilMMlMbiitiMaMMniraodiiattanltil^ AH8WE*: The Talmud (Berakot B) claims that one who •rtsWwwly « hta table wlBIive longer.

Ug B'Omer, day of field outings, is the 33rd day of the counting of the Omer. In ancient Israel, an Omer of barley (a half-gallon) was brought to the Temple every evening from the second night of Passover until the holiday ofShavuot.


The period has historical significance. Some say Uie 33rd day commemorates an Important victory by the Jewish general. Bar Kochbah, during a Jewish revolt against the Ronijuu — thus, the significance of field games today. It i> also said to commemorate the end of an epidemic which took the live* of scores of Rabbi Akiba's students. Others cite Uft hunters' garb of the students of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochal, who defied the Romans by continuing to teach the Torah; while stIU others note the celebration held on the day of his death which was the last request of Bar Yochal - he wanted no mouminc.

Al leaat one penon I talked to exprened anger that not more than a handful of Jewish people showed up for the demonstration Sunday outside Joslyn Museum. He also said it was "absurd to rationalize their apathy by claiming they don't believe In picketing cultural artists." For the record, the Omaha Committee for Soviet Jewry spearheaded protest at Joslyn on behalf of Jews and other mlnotltlec in the Soviet Union who are not free to travel as were the nnemben of the Moscow Borodin Quartet, which gave a performance that afternoon at Joslyn.

That «inly a "handful" stood up to l)e counted this past Sunday Is not to be taken lightly. Our community is one step farther ahead today because they acted.

Meverson: Nebraska-iowa AIPAC May Be Fanned Soon OMAHA - A regional committee for AIPAC, consisting of Nebraska and lows Jewish people, may be formed In a couple of monllis, according to Omaban Leo I. Meyerson. Meyeraon, former Council Bluffs resident who represented the Jewish Federation of Omaha and Nebraska Jewry at the annual meeting of AIPAC American Israel Public Affairs Committee - in Washington April 14-15, said he visited with the four Des Moines representatives about starting a regional group. Meyerson said representatives from Lincoln, Neb., would be Included. The Des Moines men were Harlan Hockenberg, Gary Rubin, Robert Daniels and Jim Brown. "AIPACtothstrtylsUiytag p«9 that has a band in iattlng iBlormatkm abool Israel to our legWaiora in WMUogion," Hegrmon lahL "And I was aorpriaed st bow little some or them know shout Israel. You kind of »«Mld think they would know all about It, but Bome of them were asUog a lot ot questions. To some ol them, Israd Is just another oouotry. For example, Curtis (Nebraska's U.8. Senator Carl) wanted lo know the size of Israel and other thhip. •There's a lot of public relations by the Jews of America that's still needed," Meyerson said He said that Nebraska's other Senator, Roman Hruska, had been one of the signers of a petition last fall which supported Israel. "Unions have lobbies, oil companlte and others have lobbies, so there's nothing unusual about It. Why can't we have lobbies for Israel? The purpose of AIPAC Is to promote good relations, between Israel and the U.S."

The AIPAC meeting, which

witnessed the reflremeni of I. L. Kenen, Its kmgtime head and vaunted expert on the Middle East, drew SSO delegates from all over the United States. Meyerson said over 1,100 persons attended the Tuesday night banquet at which U.S. Senator Henry Jackaon and Israel'i AM»< Et>an spoke Those In attendance Included Sens. Ted ' Kennedy, Daniel Inouye, Abraham RIblcoff, Jacob Javits and George McGovem. Meyerson, who had breakfast with 2nd District Congressman John Y. McColllster of Omaha, said all of Nebraska's legislators expressed siopport for Israel. , He said one of the explanations offered for President Ford's seeming hard line against Israel was that he "was limited In what he could say " lo the Egyptians out of concern for keeping their good will and because of the oil situation. He said Iirael'i Ambassador to the U.S., SImcha Dinitz, said Israel wants peace and would go "anytime, anyplace" to secure It. Meyerson alio said Israel would prefer to have Secretary of State Kiiainger make another try at gaining an agreement and Indicatkm were that this might take place prior to a resumption of the Geneva Conference, from which Israel doesn't expect too much. Morris Amilay Kenen as AIPAC dlrsdor. Old Saying "Fight Cancw with a Checkup and I Check" is nmelhliig tiwl the Ametinii Cmiocr Society vulunteen have l)een laying for ynn.
