Tarbuth Expands Media Programs

NEW YORK (JTA) — A
substantial expansion of
the media program of the
Tarbuth Foundation for
the Advancement of He-
brew Culture is planned
for the 1976-77 season, ac-
cording to Dr. Abraham
Goodman, president. He
said the new schedule in-
volves seven series of
programs, with 13 parts
each, for cable television,
an Israel music program
for radio, film strips and

,

continuation of the He-
brew Culture Caravan.
Dr. Goodman said all of
the TV programs, both
current and past, are
available on 3/4-inch vid-
eotape casettes and three
are available for public
service telecasts and for
use by Jewish organiza-
tions and educational
groups. Information is
available from the Tar-
buth Foundation. Two
Penn Plaza, N.Y., N.Y.

were disclosed Tuesday in
a report to Bnai Brith's
board of governors.
Blumberg, accompanied
by his wife and Dr.
William Korey, Bnai
Brith's director of inter-
national affairs, spent six
days in Romania at the
invitation of its govern-
ment.
Blumberg described
the session with
Ceausescu — an unusu-
ally long one between a
head of state and a non-
governmental represen-
tative — as "very cordial"
and, for the most part,
"focused on issues of con-
cern to the Jewish com-
munity."
It was "also satisfying"
to be assured by
Ceausescu and other offi-
cials of continued govern-
ment support for Jewish
cultural and religious in-
stitutions in the country,
Blumberg said.
The Bnai Brith leader

added that he had told
Ceausescu of "our con-
cern and disappoint-
ment" over the diminish-
ing rate of Jewish emig-
ration — less than one-
half of what it was in 1974
— and that he "could not
accept" Ceausescu's re-
sponse that Romania's
Jewish community of
some 60,000 had become
"a shrinking base" for the
number of Jews seeking
to emigrate. "The evi-
dence within the Roma-
nian Jewish community is
otherwise," Blumberg
declared.
He also cited, however,
the "relative freedom" of
Jewish communal life in
Romania in contrast to
most other Eastern
European countries "as a
very positive aspect, a
tribute to Rabbi Moses
Rosen as the communal
leader, and a circum-
stance that encourages
closer relationships be-

tween Western and
Romanian Jewry."
In that respect, he said,
Bnai Brith would pro-
mote increased Jewish

than 35 billion dollars
worth of arms since the
Yom Kippur War and 7
billion dollars worth of
those weapons have ar-
rived in the Middle East,
informed Israeli sources
have reported. Saudi
Arabia's share reportedly
is 14 billion dollars in
weapons.
The mounting flow of
weaponry, 66 percent or-
dered from western coun-
tries, combined with re-
cent moves toward grea-
ter cooperation among
Arab confrontation
states, is causing concern
among Israeli officials.
There are fears in Is-
rael that the growing
Arab arsenals may en-
courage Arab leaders to
think in terms of military
options against Israel,
the sources indicated.
Another reported
source of concern to Is-
rael is Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat's con-
tinuing diffictilties with
his domestic economy.
Israeli officials believe
there are ominous paral-
lels between Sadat's
problems and those in
Egypt when corruption,
economic problems and
an elephantine bureauc-
racy paved the way for
the seizure of power by
the late Gamal Abdel
Nasser, who became the
leader of anti-Israel
forces in the Arab world.

Rabbi Arnold E. Re-
snicoff, one of the latest
rabbis to be recruited and
granted ecclesiastical
endorsement, for service
to the military by the
