Bnai Brith Cabinet Hears
Call for Defensible Lines

ican national interests in a stable
Middle East "are better served
by a peace constructed out of de-
fensible borders than one depend-
ent on questionable international
guarantees," Billy B. Goldberg of
Houston, chairman of Bnai Brith's
cabinet on Israel affairs, said.
Addressing the cabinet's annual
meeting, Goldberg maintained that
Sharm el-Sheikh and the Golan
Heights are of negligible import-
ance to the defense or economy of
Egypt and Syria and "their only
practical and symbolic value are
as daggers poised at Israel's vul-
nerable points."
American diplomacy, Goldberg
said, in its concern for Middle
East stability "for its own sake
as well as to stem Soviet domina-
tion of the area," should seek to
thwart the return of territory that
can again, as in the past, be used
as a launching pad for aggression
against Israel.
The cabinet adopted a $27,000,-
000 goal for Israel Bond sales by
Bnai Brith, more than double the
record $13.7,000,000 achieved last
year. A quarterly report on tree-
planting in the Bnai Brith Martyrs'
Forest near Jerusalem showed an
increase to 46,600 for the first four
months of 1971, as against 12,475
trees purchased under Bnai Brith
auspices in the same period last

Need for Teachers
of Judaica Rising

WALTHAM, Mass. (JTA) —
Eleven PhD graduates of Brandeis
University's Lown School of Near
Eastern and Judaic Studies (NEJS)
have become faculty members at
institutions across the country and
in Canada:
At these institutions, courses in
Judaic studies were instituted co-
incident with their arrival, accord-
ing to Dr. Nahum Sarna, chairman
of the NEJS department.
"The need for more teachers of
Judaica is increasing rapidly," he
observed. "There has been a phe-
nomenal increase in the number
of students wishing to learn He-
brew, and a very large increase
in enrollment in all our classes."
Dr. Sarna noted that this has
been stimulated by the "influence
of Israel as a factor in the lives of
young Jews" and by the attention
currently being given to Soviet
He said that Brandeis offers
students, "especially non-Jewish
clergy—of which there are a
significant number at the Lown
School — two added dimensions
that they don't get in the semi-
naries: a back-ground in rabbinic
studies, and modern Hebrew, in
which most significant contempo-
rary research in Judaic studies is
published. It is not difficult to
understand why so many Amer-
ican non-Jews—and Jews—want
to study here. But it is interest-
ing that we receive many appli-
cations from Israeli students,
Study abroad is a major part
of the Lown School programs, and
doctoral students are encouraged
to study in Israel for one year
after completing course work in
the NEJS department.
