Akiva
Action Line

By GARY TORGOW
(Gary, a 12th grader at
Akiva Hebrew Day School,
who with his classmates has
been spending the year in
Israel. related the following
Yom Kippur war incident in
a letter reprinted in the
school newsletter.)

We were sitting at the
table, discussing the most
prominent subject in Israel—
the war. We were speculating
as to the date all this will
end. We heard footsteps
coming toward the entrance
next door; in that same in-
stant we heard an awful
sound, the sound of a woman
screaming..
But it was different, it was
not the normal everyday
squall of a helpless frighten-
ed woman, it was a cry for
help, an admission of fear,
a plea to God.
It was something I had
never heard before, and hope
I will never again. It was
the reaction of a loving
mother hearing the words
she most dreaded, "Your son
Jacob was killed in the war."
Yes, her 18 - year - old son
was a victim of the most
evil part of war.
I looked around with tears
in my eyes, I began to realize
that a boy my age, my
friends' age, died for a cause
much greater than I could
ever fathom. I began to feel
a love for Israel I had never
felt before it was the same
love that made this woman
say her only consolation was
that her only son died for
Israel.

If I Forget Thee,
0 Jerusalem

By SUSAN LABES
Age 13

If I forget thee 0 Jerusalem,
If you ever leave my mind,
May I never think again,
A thought of any kind.

If I forget thee 0 Jerusalem,
If you ever leave my heart,
May I never love again,
Until I shall depart.

For you my fair city
In the heart of Israel you stand,
A comfort to all Jews,
Spread throughout the land.

Campers' Officers

The recently formed teen
chapter of Shalom Campers

Keith Rosen, president; Deb-
bie Leider, vice president;

U.S. Clergy Attitudes
to Israel Probed

NEW YORK — Benjamin
Jaffe, director of the World
Zionist Organization's exter-
nal relations department, has
arrived in the United States
for a six-week series of meet-
ings with Christian leaders
of all denominations in an ef-
fort to determine the atti-
tudes of religious leadership
toward Israel in the after-
math of the Yom Kippur war.
Jaffe, here as a guest of
the commission on interre-
ligious affairs of the Ameri-
can Zionist Federation, said
that based on the result of
his survey, the Zionist lead-
ership in Israel and America
will be in a better position to
shape its programs and de-
termine its priorities.
