JDC Dietitians Guide Feeding Habits
of Uneducated Tunisian Families

Getting the food into the hands
of the needy overseas is one thing.
To assure that they will use it
properly is quite another.
A recent survey by the health
department of the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee disclosed that
most Tunisian women were totally
unacquainted with some of the
foods they had received in the
United States Food-for-Peace pro-
gram and consequently had cooked
up some bizarre dishes.
A dietitian on the staff of JDC,
major American agency aiding
needy Jews overseas, reported af-
ter she and other JDC workers
had spent several days at a dis-
tribution center of the Jewish com-
munity in Tunisia questioning the
housewives on how they used the
foods at home:
"We found that while they had
no difficulty with the flour and
butter, many did not know how to
cook the cereals or how to recon-
stitute skim milk from the pow-
der. Some had been cooking the
cereals for hours and hours and

Hotel rooms are available in

World's Fair. According to Frank
W. Teich, general manager of the
Statler Hilton in Detroit, it is not
true that it is virtually impossible
to get hotel space. Teich said that

quarters in New York had in-
formed him today that rooms are

tels although reservations are ad-

Teich emphasized that with

the results were received with a
singular lack of enthusiasm by
both husbands and children.
"As for the powdered milk,
some were soaking the powder
overnight or preparing a thick
paste with it. It was no surprise
to us that the children refused
these concoctions although they
readily accepted reconstituted milk
made from the same powder in
the school canteens."
The Joint Distribution Commit-
tee provides supplementary food
for close to 3,000 people a month
in Tunisia. the bulk of them school
children. The children are fed in
canteens in 28 schools and nine
kindergartens with an enrollment
of close to 4,000 children.
Food-for-Peace supplies donated
by the United States Department
of Agriculture and distributed by
JDC totalled a 1 rn o s t 1,500,000
pounds in 1963 and aided a month-
ly average of some 7,300 needy
Jews in Tunisia. During the period
from July 1, 1963 through March
31. 1964, U.S. Food-for-Peace sup-
plies distributed by JDC in Tunisia
totalled 3,449,000 pounds.
The JDC workers set off a cor-
ner of the food distribution center
for cooking demonstrations using
the same materials and utensils
found in most Tunisian homes.
They launched their program in
May, giving one or two demon-
strations a day twice a week. After
each demonstration the women
were given the finished dishes to
taste. By the end of June some
300 women had attended demon-
strations. Many of them later re-
ported that they had used the re-
cipes and that their families were
pleased with the results.

Against Overweening
Pride of Good Birth

We should blame those who
spuriously appropriate as their own
merit what they derive from others
— namely, good birth — and such
people should justly be regarded
as enemies not only of the Jewish
race, but of all mankind: of the
Jewish race, because they engender
indifference in their brethren, so
that they despise the righteous life
in their reliance upon their ances-
tors' virtue; and of the Gentiles,
because they would not allow them
their meed of reward even though
they attain to the highest excel-
lence of conduct, simply because
they have not commendable ances-
tors. I know not if there could he
a more pernicious doctrine than
this: that there is no punishment
for the wicked offspring of good
parents, and no reward for the
good offspring or evil parents. The
law judges each man upon his own
merit, and does not assign praise
or blame according to the virtues
of the forefathers. . . God judges
by the fruit of the tree, not by the
root; and in the Divine judgment
the proselyte will be raised on high,
and he will have a double distinc-
tion, because on earth he "de-
serted" to God. and later he re-
ceives as his reward a place in

Primacy Urged for
Jewish Education

Israel Rabbinate Called 'Anachronism' ;
Rationalism Urged by Late Prof. Cahn

HAIFA (JTA) — Israel's rab-
binical courts were described as
an "anachronism" by a noted
American legal philosopher, the
late Prof. Edmond Cahn, whose
paper was read before the Ameri-
can - Israeli "dialogue" conducted
by the American Jewish Congress.
The paper by Praf. Cahn, who died
in New York a week ago, was pre-
sented by Will Maslow, executive
director of the AJC, and stated
that "free people have the right
to make and change their own laws
of personal status, instead of sub-
mitting to an ancient code pur-
porting to be unamendable."
"Sects" in Israel, Prof. Cahn
said, "are using the political state
as a tool to clamp their doctrines
on the lives of the whole popula-
tion." He urged Israel to recon-
sider its reservations about the
enactment of a bill of rights which,
he stated, "would guarantee just
and rational methods of justice."
The "dialogue," which had been
held in Jerusalem, adjourned to
the auditorium of the Technion,
the Israel Institute of Technology
here, for its concluding session.
The closing principal speaker was
Gidton Haure, Israel's former
attorney general, who pointed out
that Israel had "succeeded in es-
tablishing juridical institutions
which strengthen its democratic
