Rabbi Feels Jewish Education Is More Important Than Aliya

S&O POOL
DOCTORS

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
An American Jewish leader
placed Jewish education for
the young above aliya as
"the prime task of Zionism
in the diaspora."
Rabbi ..A.rtheur Hertzberg,
president of the American
Jewish Congress also said
that American Jews see Is-
rael not as a place to move to
but rather as a way of keep-
ing their own Jewishness
alive in the dispora. Hertz-
berg spoke at the opening
session of the annual Con-
gress-sponsored American-
Israeli Dialogue.
"The centrality of Israel,
as understood in the free
diaspora, does not mean
that Jews see themselves as
building into the Jewish
state. It means, on the con-
trary, that the labors for the
state are the prime preser-
vative of the dispora," he
said.
He added that "At this
moment, the prime task of
Zionism in the dispora is to
mount a rescue operation so
that every Jewish child re-

ceives some kind of Jewish
education, some direct ex-
perience of Israel early in
his life so that he is chal-
lenged with the possibility
of opting himself for aliya."
Former Foreign Minis-
ter Abba Eban, addressing
the dialogue, did not take
direct issue with Hertz-
berg's views on the pri-
macy of Jewish education.

But he chided diaspora
Jewry which, he said, for
the first time in history
"was not giving that of
which Israel needs most —
aliya."
Eban rejected the idea
that Israel's social imperfec-
tions discouraged large-
scale Jewish immigration.
He said those imperfections
existed because not enough

President Signs Aid Measure

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
The President July 1 signed
the fiscal year 1976 foreign
aid appropriations bill to-
talling $5.6 billion. The mea-
sure includes $1.5 billion in
arms credits for Israel, half
to be forgiven, and $730 mil-
lion in security supporting
assistance.
The 15-month measure
includes the controversial
funding for the July-
through-September transi-
tional quarter which pro-
vides $275 million for Israel:
$200 million in arms credits,
of which half is to be for-
given and $75 million in
economic assistance.
The President also signed
the international security
and arms control act au-
thorizing $3.979 billion for
the 27 months ending Sept.
1977. Of this amount $1 bil-
lion is earmarked for Israel
for credits and grants for
the purchase of any kind of
defense equipment.
The 1977 foreign aid bill,
which was adopted last
week by the House, is
awaiting action by the
Senate. The measure pro-
vides $4.95 billion, includ-
ing $1.735 billion for Is-
rael. This includes $1

billion in military credit
sales, of which- half can be
forgiven and $735 'million
in economic aid. In addi-
tion, $35 million dollars
will be available for the
Middle East in a special
requirement fund.
Last week it was stated
that Ford told Jewish lead-
ers that Israel received $6.5
billion in U.S. air during the
27 months of his Adminis-
tration. It should have
stated that Ford reported
Israel received $4.3 to $4.4
billion during his Adminis-
tration and $6.5 billion dur-
•ng the preceding 26 years.

Jews came to Israel. "You
cannot create our aveak-
nesses by your calculated
absence and then invoke
those weaknesses as a rea-
son for not coming to cor-
rect them," Eban said.

New Osteoporosis
Test Developed

JERUSALEM — A new
method for diagnosing os-
teoporosis has been devel-
oped by scientists at the Ra-
cah Institute of Physics at
the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem.
The two main diagnostic
methods in use today are x-
rays of the spinal column
and the newly developed
measurement of absorption
of gamma rays by bones in
the arm. In the latter, an in-
strument measures the
quantity of minerals in the
bone rather than the bone
density itself.
Osteoporosis is a bone dis-
ease associated with aging,
and comes about as a result
of decreasing density of the
bone material. This happens
when the destructive proc-
esses overtake the process of
bone formation. The disease
shows primarily in changes
in the spinal column. One of
the most serious effects is
the tendency to fractures,
especially of the leg.
Little is known about the
mechanism of the disease's
development, but physicians
think it may be possible,
with drug treatment or
changes in life style during
its early stages, to prevent
its becoming worse. Early
diagnosis is therefore very
i m portant.

In the sweat of thy face
shalt thou eat bread.
—Genesis

BENJAMIN NONES 1757 1826
Major in the Continental Army

-

"Hebrew Legion" either because of its leader
or its large number of Jewish enlistments.

Other legends have the major as serving on the
staffs of Generals Washington, Lafayette,
DeKalb and Pulaski.

He was deeply impressed and influenced by
the example of young Lafayette who had out-
fitted his own ship in Bordeaux for sailing to
the aid of the revolutionaries. Nones followed
and soon after landing in America, found him-
self in uniform.

After Yorktown and the end of war, Major
Nones settled in Philadelphia where he became
active in masonry and Jewish communal
affairs. He served as president of Congregation
Mikvah Israel before and after the turn of the
19th century: and was official interpreter of
French and Spanish for the Board of Health
for the U.S. Government.

AJOR BENJAMIN NONES lived in
Bordeaux, France at the time the
American colonies were seething
against the repressive British.
"Liberty, independence, rights of man...cre-
atcd equal..." these were heady words for the
idealistic Nones, heard from across the ocean.

He fought in nearly all the battles of the Caro-
lina campaigns, including the sieges of Charles-
ton and Savannah. His behavior in action, his
bravery and gallant conduct were officially
recognized and in due course he was rewarded
with the rank of Major.

Legend has it that Nones commanded a
battalion of 400 men, fancifully called the
