After leaving Russia, Dr.
Gruber went to Israel — it
was her 25th trip — to con- ,
tinue covering the story of
the Soviet Jews now living

in absorption centers in _Is-
rael. She also•was in Vienna,
where she met the trains
bringing in some of the 70,000
Jews who have now immi-
grated to Israel.
Dr. Gruber is the author
of 10 books — five of them
on Israel, including the best-
seller, -"Israel on the Seventh
Day." As foreign corre-
spondent for the New York
Herald Tribune, she covered
the story of Israel from its
birth to the present and has
contributed articles to many
agazines.

The Festival of Freedom

By MICHAEL PELAVIN
President, Jewish Community Council
American Jewry responded to the trauma of Yom
Kippur 1973 generously and with passion. What had once
been enough was no longer adequate. What had before been
generous became minimal. Emotion coupled with reason
raised our consciousness to new levels.
Young and old among us looked inward. We were
frustrated by a sense of helplessness and yet we were
determined to be the makers of our destiny. We drew
strength from our history and we began to understand its
vision of the future.
The Passover seder is an event in Jewish life that
brings us together in family celebration and links us with
our past. We are strengthened in the knowledge that all
over the world. families like ours are repeating the same
story of deliverance and are expressing the same hopes for
redemption.
This seder table stabile symbolizes our connection with
our people in Israel and throughout the world. The Israeli
soldier carrying_the Torah into captivity, the Russian Jewish
immigrant to Israel, the Jewish American family at the
seder table . . it is all of us and . . . we are one.
May this Passover, the Festival of our Freedom, bring
the promise of freedom for our people everywhere and for
all mankind.
