The family plus one ducked into the basement and the tornado slammed tlirough, ripping off big hunks of roof and somewhat iNicklIng the walls. Mike said he saw two tornado tails approaccing, one leaving. Nobody ever learned the stranger's nanie. Just seconds l)efore, one block away, Joanne Freeman, librarian at Lewis and Clark Junior High, had huddled in the southeast comer of her basement under a pool table as the storm took apart most of the house. Earlier that afternoon, husband Jerry lutd changed can, leaving the Flat which was blown - with the garage — into the Freeman backyard. She, like the Wassermans, escaped in]ury.

A large tree limb was driven through a wall of thehotise. Temple Israel at 7023 Cass was heavily damanged but "on the tMsla of what I've seen so far," the need to build a l>rand new synagogue "is not at all likely," said Stanley E. Perimeter, congregation president who stressed, however, that not all surveys of damages had been completed early this week. "The odds are very much against total rebuilding." Perimeter, Temple Vice President Sid Austin; Irv Sherman, board member and chairman of the building and grounds conunittee and architect Gary Goldstein, a Temple member, had surveyed the structure and Indications were that it would take "several months, probably the fall at the very earliest before It will be back in operation," said Perimeter. Goldstein's assessment said Preliminary investigations revealed the roof over the sanctuary and social hall had lost sections of the metal decking and that ttte metal flashings and copings around the entire building were either "damaged, displaced or missing." The roof over tlie education section of the Temple, he said, "was badly damaged" including some of the structural steel. There was roof damage eisewiiere and the wall on the south side of the educatkm unit "will have

to be replaced." Senior Rabbi Sidney Brooks, together with Associate Rabbi Barry Welnstein and Ral>bl Robert Kaiser of Temple B'nal Jeshunm In Lincoln had herded the office staff and two classes of students into the basement on May 6.

Banks Ramindad NEW YORK - The American Jewish Committee has asked state banking superintendents and commissioners In the 50 states to make clear to all slate-chartered banics that religious or racial discrimination by them would not be tolerated The request follows reports that some banks may have been offered large deposits by foreign investors on condition that no Jew serve on the bank's Board of Directors or control any significant portion of lU stock.


Terrorism Discusaed JERUSALEM - The theory and practice of terrorism were systematically evaluated by scbolars at a three-day international Conference on Strategic Studies held In Jerusalem under the sponsorship of the Hebrew University's Leonard Davis Institute (or International Relations. In one of the first iull-scale acadenolc dlscusskns ever to take place on problems of terrorism, seven overseas international relations experts (from Norway. Sweden and the United States) and seven Israeli colleagues

•adi presented a paper on an aspect of terrorism. The conference was devoted to strategic issues and oriented towards helping policy makers make better decisions by twneflting from the analyses of academic experts. It concentrated on the following major subjects: "Terrorism and blackmail as strategic Instruments", "Surprise attacks and preemptive strlkea", and "Forms of control over warandvkiience".

Unplannad Spaakar NEW YORK - There was an extra speaker at the aiuiual dinner of the Harvard Business School aub In New York's prestigious Americana Hotel. Neither Soviet Amtiassadors Dobrynin and Malik, PepsIco kxwrd chairman Donald Kendall or the many captains of American Industry who were there had planned to listen to him, but picketing members of the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry saw an opportunity. Soon after the main speaker, Dzerman GvishianI, Soviet Premier Kosygln's son-in-law and a director of the US-USSR Trade and Economic Council, began his address, 18-yearold SSSJnik Mordechal Raanan raced through a side door and to the main dais. Speaking kxxUy, Raanan reminded the audience of over SOO alMxit the hundreds of thousands of Soviet Jews seeking to leave the Jewish prisoners in USSR labor camps. To emphasize his point, he pulled the tablecloth on the dais. A $500 vase, to be presented to GvishianI, crashed to the floor and shattered. The point having been made, three guards , tackled Raanan, who was kicked by several industrialists while being dragged Into a side room. The Harvard Business School Club declined to press charges, except for payment for the vase. (If payment is required, SSSJ will esUbllsh a Soviet Vase Defense Fun.)

touring the land and brushing up somewhat on renascent modem Hebrew in a period of no more than six months. Little did I dream then that I would be so intrigued by the Holy Land and particularly by the spirit then prevailing in the land endamed and enriched by (he opening of the Hebrew Univenity on Mount Scopus ... that I wouki rematai.. .ckise to five yean. And the formal dedlcatkM of the cokmy of Bafouria — where my father in Omaha had bought land after World War I - by Lord Balfour, author of the history-maUng Balfour Declaration, had no small part in my settling In Balfouria as a farmer for three yean. No more couki I then envision that, 10 yean later, I wouM be writing in Omaha an article, "The Hebrew Univenity Celebrates IU Tenth Year" (for B'nai B'rith magazine). And that for (Its SOth Year celebration June SO) 1 would be receiving an InviUtion. . One can't help bU-ieal that we live in the moit -amadng

age in which the fantastic dreams of yesterday become the dazxiing realities of tomorrow. And no less can one feel that strange, mysterious, horrendous and happy have been the workings of Jewish history miracles to perform — to celebrate the Jubilee of the HeiMew Unhrersity in 1975! BonyO.liaMMHB

Camp Newman Special Edition

Good Times with Good Friends nO*~»»t|{A

1 siRB^ ^ Mton^tag W« run what is called a group-c«ntared camp. Hve to nine campert, living, sharing, and exparierKing togettier. They share the responsibility for all that is involved in day to day Hving. Just as importantly, they are responsible for each other. The campers become a group, and it is through this process of t)ecoming that each individual contributes to and receives from the unique adventure of belonging to a living group. The friendships formed in this type of setting last well beyond the camping experience. Campers remember wfw they were with, as well as what they did. The emphasis at Camp Esther K. Newnrian is on working together for something good ... a comfortable atmosphere; to try, to ask for help, to take a risk. Because the concern is realty that each child partkipates to his fullest, that he grows, and that he's provMed with relaxed, encouraging, exciting places to do these things. To experience and to enjoy. And finally, nnost profoundly, Camp Esther K. Newman is a Jewish camp. A ptace for young people to discover and affimn their identity as Jews and develop meaning to their being Jewish. To expk>re ideas, thoughts, history, their heritage. To learn, not t>y rote, but meaningfully the reality of being part of a collective peoplehood with an amazing past, a vital presem, and a future whk:h is in their hands. Camp Esther K. Newman lights a' spark, begins a realization that is often the most meaningful awareness in the iife-k>ng development of Jewish kientity, and interpersonal relatonships. It deals with all the needs a young person brings — physical, social, imellectual, amotbnal. And has deeply signifkwn, lasting impact.

A Letter: My KUNitz ByLsmCanoa DES MOINES - Kibbutzim today are generally not as Halutzic and struggling as they used to be in Uie eariler days. However, a few new, struggling Kibbutzim exist and the experiences I am having on one such Kibbutz is worth describing. As pari of my experience In Israel through the Institute of World Leaders from Abroad, I am a volunteer on Kibbutz K'Tura In the Araua. norih of Eilat. It was established two years ago by.young Judean |attaa.wl)p'fle#led after their. year's experience In Isniei to build their home together on Kibbutz. The Chavertm are mostly Americans from youth movement backgrounds and their Ideologies are still an Important pari of day-to^y life. In the store, everyone receives the supplies they need. There is no money or coupons used. The monthly vacation money Is the same for members, candidates and volunteers. K'aa ererywie's role aa the iObhubi Is Unportant, and then are many opportunities to learn quickly and take respoasibility. I've found myaetf working on Purim daooratlaoa, hnnnilitlng Upoand tarkeys, cooking (Pieoch Qoioii 1019)* iiiffcing tomatoes and peppers, mmtMn^ iOrtlng, f***!"! ff>* pruniag flowcn and planting therMBSf lalaalsoaeedbe Ihrli«hen. Kibbutz existence Isn't a perfect way of life. There are many problems: financial, cooperation of all Uie workers

and branches, acceptance criterion lor Chaverim, raising of children, Job opportunities, etc. But this type of life has many poaslbilllles of being a difficult but rewarding existence. I am thankful to the Bureau , of Jewish Education forgiving * me the opportunity-<to experience tbls> yearntorfsra and I hope when I return next, year to Des Moines, I will be able to share in greater depth my experiences In Israel will). you. SMomp, If you can Uiink of aitything to ad^ to the article, please feel tree. Today I worked In the kitclien and I'm I exhausted. ^ Ceof r wrote ttie that he toe) Shiomo, who will be working at the Bureau next year. I'm sorry I'm not turning out more Inspiring articles; It's Just that I'm currently In a worid of socialist Ideology, Allyah questioning, etc., and It's difficult to be creative.
