Mrs. Kissinger Gets Cram Coursein Jewish History on Israel Visit

By GIL SEDAN and
TUVIA MENDELSON
JERUSALEM (JTA) — As
her famous husband shuttled
between Jerusalem, Damas-
cus and Alexandria in pur-
suit of Israeli-Syrian disen-
gagement, Nancy Kissinger
performed the tasks of a
diplomat's wife abroad—so-
cial rounds and sightseeing—
which were in their own way
no less grueling than those
of the secretary of state.
Reflecting the public's al-
sst insatiable appetite for
.- AS and views of Dr. Kiss-
mger's recent bride, report
ers and photographers dog-
ged her every step in and
around Jerusalem and on a
visit to Masada.
They unintentionally cre-
ated a commotion when,
along with security men they
followed Mrs. Kissinger into
the Ezrat Nashim (women's
section) at the Western Wall
where males or forbidden.
"What's happening here?"
screamed the attendant in
near panic-. But it was too
late, for Mrs. Kissinger was
already at the wall surround_
ed by photographers as she
watched elderly woman sob-
bing against the ancient
stones.
Her tour of Jewish holy
places last Friday was fol-
lowed by a visit to the Dome
of the Rock which, according
to Moslem tradition, can be
trod only by unshod feet.
Journalists, barred - from
entering the mosque, spent
their time speculating which
of the long row of shoes out-

tinguished guest. When Mrs.
Kissinger emerged, she had
the same question. "Where
are my shoes?" she asked.
Mrs. Kissinger was offici-
ally the guest of Suzy Eban,
wife of the foreign minister.
On Friday night, while her
husband was in Damascus,
she dined with the Ebans at
one of Jerusalem's most
fashionable restaurants. Jer-
usalem society showed up,
too, to catch a glimpse of
the famous visitor.
On Saturday, there was a
walking tour of the Old City,
followed by hordes of pho-
tographers and f rie ndly
crowds.
Mrs. Kissinger, who is
about 6 feet tall, found it dif-
ficult to keep a low profile,
even we a ring low-heeled
shoes. She maintained her
smile, but obviously she was
weary and especially un-
happy over the flash bulbs
that kept popping off in her
face.
Dr. Avraham Biran, head
of the government's antiqui-
ties department, persisted in
giving her a cram course on
the history of Jerusalem as

row streets.
Mrs. Kissinger listened pol-
litely, asked only one or two
questions and gave the im-
pression she wished the tour
would end.
Her itinerary included a
visit to the Yad Vashem Hol-
ocaust memorial where she
was shown the book of the
destroyed Jewish communi-
ties of Bavaria in which the
names of members of her
husband's family are listed.
On Friday morning there
was a visit to the excavations
at Masada as guest of He-
ties of Bavaria in which the
brew University archeologist
Yigal Yadin, who appeared
only too anxious to impart to
Mrs. Kissinger the entire his-
tory of the ancient fortress
and details of the latest digs.
Mrs. Kissinger also visited
the Weizmann Institute at
Rehovot where its president,
Meyer Weisgal was to give
a party for Golda Meir on
her 76th birthday.
She spent most of Saturday
afternoon resting in her King
David Hotel suite and then
hurried to Ben-Gurion Air-
port to meet her husband ar-

day the Kissingers left for
Amman, Jordan, and return-
ed Tuesday to Jerusalem.
Kissinger took his wife to
meet Premier Golda Meir on
the eve of her birthday May
3.
Mrs. Meir, receiving the
couple at her residence, con-
gratulated them and gave
Mrs. Kissinger a wedding
gift of two ancient glass
bottles, one for perfume and
the other for tears.
The premier explained
that, according to ancient
custom, every wife must
have a bottle to collect her
tears of sorrow whenever
her husband was away—a
seemingly appropriate gift
in view of Kissinger's trav-
els.

Volunteers Praised
by President Katzir

NEW YORK — American
a n d Canadian volunteers,
who gave up their schooling,
jobs and businesses to help
Israel during the Yom Kip-
pur War, have received the
gratitude and thanks of the
state of Israel.
President Ephraim Katzir,
in a special message to the
men and women who serve
on the kitbutzim and coopera-,
tive villages of Israel, de-
clared:
"As we .take stock of the
situation in Israel today, we
hear again • and again how
much the successful continu-
ation of agriculture in our
kibutzim and cooperative vil-
lages during the war, owes
to the volunteers who took
the place of thousands of
soldiers and reservists.
"As some stay on and
others go at the end of their
‘dged time, we hope and
-elieve that other young peo-
ple will be coming from the
West to serve as volunteers
in Israel's farms and fac-
tories and at the same time
find ,a new dimension for
their lives — the dimension
of encountering history and
helping to create it by their
own .efforts."
The Am e r i c an Zionist
Youth Foundation's "Project
Etgar" program, for high
school graduates and college
age men and women, is pres-
ently seeking volunteers to
continue the aid to the kibut-
zim and cooperative villages.
