Mihaly briefly trys to
show how the Torah lives
through the thoughts- of its
students, how century upon
century of students
throughout the ages keep
the Torah updated through
their study and discussions.
He describes a discus-
sion of various passages of
the Torah in an ancient
academy and in a modern
classroom, and makes the
Torah "live" for the
reader.
Comparing the learned
responses of the students of
the ancient academy to the
often bored reactions of

JDL Raps Council
for Soviet Jewry

NEW YORK (JTA) — The
Jewish Defense League
charged that the National
Conference on Soviet Je-
wry's denial that it had
barred the JDL from partic-
ipating in the Wcirld Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry next
month was deliberately
misleading.
The denial, by Jerry
Goodman, executive direc-
tor of the NCSJ, was pub-
lished in the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency's Daily
News Bulletin Jan. 19.
According to Dov Fisch,
the JDL's associate director,
the NCSJ was trying "to
write the JDL out of history
by refusing to recognize-- its
right to exist" and resorted
to misleading statements to
escape "the wrath of the
Jewish community."
Fisch said that "further
action" will be taken if the
NCSJ "refuses to clearly
state its position on JDL
attendance at Brussels."
He said the JDL was call-
ing on the Jewish commu-
nity "to take whatever ac-
tion necessary" to show the
NCSJ "that the JDL repre-
sents the will of the Jewish
community." He added, "If
the leadership does not lead,
the people will surely re-
spond."

some modern students, Mih-
aly, in this poetic volume,
has an answer for the mod-
ern skeptics — those whose
lives are governed by
thoughts of the Bomb,
Auschwitz, the drug cults,
"the inviting stream to no
place:"
"And the rabbinic re-
sponse? Creation! God of
life! Blessing! The sensitive
students heard the theme
behind the variation. Not a
philosophic argument this
Midrash — but a vocation, a
love song:

Be a blessing!
Open _yourself to the
possible!
Nurture an insatiable
curiosity!
Find . life-giving re-
source!

In his brief,,108 pages,
Mihaly poetically re-creates
the value of the Torah, with
a fine moral for modern
man. He paints a picture of
the Torah as a living docu-
ment, ever changing but
ever prepared with ques-
tions and answers for those
who would but use it.
In his concluding pages,
Mihaly argues for continued
study, as well as openess in
study of the - Torah, and he
rejects fundamentalist and
hard-line, doctrinaire ap-
proaches:
"But," the teacher
mused, "the student's very
rejection of the literal will
lead him, if he persists
and if his initial commit-

Baltimore Cardinal
Gets AJC Award

BALTIMORE — Lawr-
ence Cardinal Shehan, for-
mer Archbishop of Balti-
more, was honored by the
American Jewish Commit-
tee for the focal role he
played in encouraging Vati-
can Council II, 10 years ago,
to adopt the Declaration on
Non-Christian Religions
that repudiated anti-Semi-
tism and absolved the Jew-
ish people of the charge of
deicide.
Dr. Morton K. Blaustein,
Baltimore industrialist,
who is a national vice presi-
dent of the American Jew-
ish Committee and a former
chairman of its Baltimore
chapter, presented the Car-
dinal with the organiza-
tion's National Interreli-
gious Award — an original
lithograph by artist Chaim
Gross.
Cardinal Shehan was
chairman of the American
Catholic Bishops' Secretar-
iat on Ecumenism and In-
terreligious Relations at the
time of Vatican Council II,
and led the American Cath-:
olic delegation in its advo-
cacy of the declaration.
The tribute to the Cardi-
nal was part of the program
at an interreligious seminar
titled "Vatican II: Ten Years
Later — What Remains To
Be Done." It was held at the
College of Notre Dame of
Maryland, and was co-spon-
sored by the Baltimore
Chapter of the American
Jewish Committee, the Bal-
timore Jewish Council, and
the Commission on Ecu-
menical and Interreligious
Affairs of the Archdiocese
of Baltimore.

ment is resolute, to find
the true Torah — the Jew-
ish continuum which tran-
scends any limited, histor-
ical concretization of it.
"As important as the dis-
covery and appropriation of
the essential Jewish ethos
undoubtedly is for a Jew, of
no less significance — as an
essential first step step — is
the knowledge, gained
through firsthand probing
of the endless details, that
the specific, literal expres-
sion of the Jewish contin-
uum in any one age may be-
come, in a subsequent
period, a gross disfigure-
ment of it.
"Bibliolatry, the worship
of the word,. investing the
human formulation with
ultimacy, is perhaps the
most persistent and perni-
cious form of idolatry; it
stands in polar opposition to
Torah . . ."
— A. H.

Jewish Hijack
Attempt Foiled

TEL AVIV — Airport
sources said that Soviet
fighter planes forced down a
hijacked Russian jetliner
apparently commandeered
by one or more Russian
Jews who wanted to go to
Israel.
They said a radio call
from the plane was over-
heard in which a man said
he was a Jew and wanted to
go to Israel. The sources
said the plane landed on
Soviet territory'after fighter
planes closed in and ordered
in down. -
_Israeli authorities took
emergency precautions but
called them off after three
hours in the realization that
a Tupolov jetliner, the type
said to have been seized,
could not fly to Israel from
Moscow without refueling,
the sources said.
They said the top-rank-
ing official at the airport
during the alert was Ra-
hamim Ze'evi, Prime Min-
ist6r Yitzhak Rabin's anti-
terrorist adviser.
(In Moscow, both Soviet
officials and Western air-
line sources said they had
no information about any
such hijacking.)
(There have been reports
of several previous attempts
to hijack aircraft out of the
Soviet Union but because of
news blackouts it has been
impossible to confirm
them.)

`Israel, Arabs
Face Big Crisis'

TEL AVIV (ZINS) — Is-
rael faces a major crisis
with the Arabs preparing
the ground for a total war
against the Jewish state,
warns Prof. Amnon Rubin-
steiri, writing in the He-
brew daily, Ha'aretz.
Rubinstein said that the
strategy of the Arab-Com-
munist bloc in the UN is
aimed not only to isolate
Israel in the world commu-
nity, but also to gain a sanc-
tion from the UN General
Assembly to wage war
against Israel under the flag
of the United Nations.
