While Premier Yitzhak
Rabin and his staff were
planning the daring
commando raid that freed
100 Israelis hijacked to
Uganda last July, a dozen
Israeli intellectuals were
meeting in a seminar in
Jerusalem with an equal
number of American
Jewish scholars and
community leaders on a
less immediate but no less
crucial theme: the rela-
tionship between the
state of Israel and the
Jews of the United States.
For both American and
Israeli panelists at the
four-day symposium in
the Van Leer Institute in
Jerusalem, there was
something troubling
about the present state of
relations within the fam-
ily.
On the Israeli side,
there was sharp disap-
pointment that American
Jews still refuse to make
aliya— that is move to Is-
rael — in large numbers.
And from the American
side, there was a concern
that U.S. J,ews had little
or Alo input into Israeli
decisions that affect not
only Israel but also Jews
outside Israel - for
example, on religious
questions like "Who is a
Jew?" and on political
ones like the govern-
ment's policy on the fu-
ture of the West Bank
The setting was the
12th American-Israel
"Dialogue," an annual
symposium sponsored by
the American Jewish Con-
gress. The chairman was
Henry Rosovsky, dean of
the faculty of arts and sci-
ences at Harvard Univer-
sity, a national vice presi-
dent of the AJCongress.
The issues were sharply
drawn on the opening
night of the symposium, ti-
tled: "The Contemporary
Meaning of Zionism —
New Definitions and New
Directions."

Rabbi Arthur Hertz-
berg, president of
the AJCongress, began
with a call for "serious
joint consultation and ac-
tion" between the Dias-
pora — Jews who live out-
side of Israel — and the
state of Israel.

The AJCongress leader
warned that "Jewishness
in the Diaspora is
e.vaporating amidst poli-
tics and programming on
behalf of Israel," adding:
"At this moment the
prime task of Zionism in
the Diaspora is to mount
a rescue operation to give
every Jewish child some
kind of Jewish education,
some direct experience -of
Israel early in his life, so
that he is challenged with
the possibility of opting
himself for aliya."

In
reply,
former
Foreign Minister Abba
Eban expressed both
puzzlement and regret
that American Jews were
not emigrating to Israel
in the kind of numbers
that would make an im-,
pact on the Jewish state.

(In 1975 less than 2,500
American Jews emig-
rated to Israel.)
After four days of dis-
cussion and debate, ag-
reement was reached on a
kind of declaration of in-
terdependence of Ameri-
can Jews and Israel and on
a set of guidelines for
meeting the issues of par-
ticipation in Israeli
decision-making and in-
creasing American aliya to
Israel.

The six points of the
1976 "Dialogue Declara-
tion" make up a new
agenda for Zionism, pos-
ing issues for debate.that
are likely to reverberate
in the. Jewish community
for months and years to
come. And they offer one
more indication that
since its first session in
1962 the American - Israel
dialogue has come to be
recognized as perhaps
the most vital and sig-
nificant exchange of
ideas and ideologies bet-
ween the two great cen-
ters of world Jewry L–
America and Israel. Here
is the dialogue's program
for Zionists:

• Zionists demand a
deepening of Jewish
knowledge. This task re-
quires increased dedica-
tion by world Jewry to the
broadest possible range
of educational modalities,
directed toward an un-
derstanding of the Jewish
heritage and its contem-
porary application and
significance.

• To reinforce the sol-
idarity of the Jewish
people in the face of the
grave threats that today
confront it, Zionists rec-
ognize the need to de-
velop instrumentalities
for effective consultation
and deliberation between
Diaspora Jewry and Is-
rael on ,issues affecting
r common fate.

Oak Park

• Zionists accept re-
sponsibility for promot-
ing spiritual and physical
ties between Israel and
the Diaspora, to the end
that aliya becomes one of
the primary tasks of the
Jewish people.

• Zionists believe Heb-
rew must become the sec-
ond language of Diaspora
Jewry. It provides a pro-
found connection with
the Jewish past, en-
hances and strengthens
Jewish consciousness and
creates essential links
among Jewish people.

Son, Ronald

Wish all thei?•fantily & frier?ds
A Happy Healthy New Year

• Zionists affirm the
role of Israel as the home-
land of the Jewish people
and as occupying a spe-
cial and primary role in
the life of that people
everywhere,
while
acknowledging the exis-
tence of other valid and
ongoing centers of Jewish
creativity.

• Zionists recognize
the mutual dependence of
Israel and the Diaspora
in the struggle to main-
tain the continuity of the
Jewish people and ad-
vance the Jewish herit-
age in the modern age.
