Quebec Situation Spurs CJC

Canadian Jewish Congress
(CJC) 18th Plenary Assem-
bly May 12-15 is being view-
ed as one of the most impor-
tant in the history of the 58-
year-old organization.
According to the organiz-
ers, the significance lies in
, the current situation in Can-
ada, specifically in Quebec.
which will affect the Jewish
community perhaps to a
greater extent than it will
most other Canadians.
- According to Shirley Rabi-
-,cnovitch, chairwoman of the
arrangements committee,
Quebec Premier Rene Le-
is slated to make a

major address May 13 dur-
ing which he is expected to
deal with issues of signifi
cance to the province's mi-
nority groups.
Secretary of State John
Roberts will also partici-
pate in the conference,
Mrs. Rabinovitch said.
In addition to dealing
with the political climate in
Quebec, the assembly will
also deal with the evolving
role of the CJC at both the
national and local levels
and the policy of the feder-
al government on issues re-
lating to Israel. All major
sessions will be conducted
in simultaneous French-
English translation.

Jewish Youth Hostels Sought
, to Counter Religious Cults

Two leading authorities on
cults and movements on col-
lege campuses have called
on American Jewish com-
munities to establish re-
treat centers or hostels for
American Jewish college-
age youth.
Rabbi Arthur Green, as-
sistant professor of religion
at the University of Pennsyl-
vania, and Rabbi A. James
Rudin, assistant director of
the interreligious affairs de-
partment of the American
Jewish Committee, issued
their call at a special Cen-
tral Conference of Ameri-
can Rabbis (CCAR) meet-
c . Green called upon the
American Jewish commu-
nity to establish retreat cen-
ters staffed by a small, ong-
oing communal group
which would provide an ad-
dress in the Jewish commu-
,, nity "where young people
in search of a serious reli-
gious path might turn." Ex-
isting institutions do not
meet the needs of young
Jews, said Green who is a
co-founder of the Havurat
Shalom of Boston and one
c of the major innovative
workers with Jewish stu-
Rudin said that along
with assimilation and inter-
marriage, the emergence of
new cults, especially the
Jews for Jesus, Hebrew
Christians, Rev. Moon's Uni-
fication Church, and the
Hare Krishna, "pose a
growing threat to Jewish
continuity and survival in
To meet the special needs
of young Jews between the
ages of 15 and 25, "a great-
er emphasis must be placed
on spiritual values, prayer
and a sense of warmth and

belonging that is often lack-
ing in today's organized
Jewish community," he
Rudin recommended that
large' Jewish communities
establish Jewish hostels for
young Jews, located in cen-
tral cities and afford a total
Jewish environment: sleep-
ing accommodations, food,
classes, counseling, prayer
services, entertainment and,
education. He said that the
Jewish community has the
financial and professional
resources to set up the
youth hostels.

Unique N. Y. Restaurant

New York is unique for
many things. It specializes
in entertainment and it
boasts about the thousands
of restaurants.
Seymour Britchkey's re-
vised guide to "Restaurants
of New York" (Random
House) is a work that will
he studied with relish not
only by tourists visiting
New York but by New York-
ers themselves who will
learn what had been
strange to them.
To purvey the entire
gamut of restaurants in this
introductory guidebook is
like producing a romance.
There isn't an ethnic or na-
tional group, a country on
earth that is not either rep-
resented or emulated.
Of unusual interest is the
following story about a
most unique Jewish restau-
"The Parkway and its ad-
mirers strain for the past,
one that is largely unre-
membered, at that. This res-
taurant is an archeological
reconstruction rather than
the survivor of a tradition,
no matter how directly it
can trace its provenance to
a real Romanian Jew's real
Romanian-Jewish restau-
rant on New York's once-
mainly-Jewish Lower East
Side. The food here is for
real, and jollity is jollity,
but the culture is moribund,
if not dead, its assimilated
descendants scattered, and
the feasts and celebrations
and evenings out are larky,
contrived, "something dif-
ferent," not a natural as-
pect of the lives of the
people who come here.
"But the recipes are in
the public domain, the in-
gredients available; and
museums, after all, cannot
be faulted for displaying
the teepee but not the rain
"Many of the best things
- at the Parkway are free.
You are presented with
great bowls of pickles: pick-
led red and green tomatoes,
pickled peppers, all exceed-
ingly tart, sweet and gar-
licked, and all very stimu-
lating. You accompany
them with rye bread that is
fresh and moist in its crack-
ling crust and with the car-
bonated water (seltzer)
that is served in big pitch-

Herzog Says Egypt Suffered
in Security Council Debate

(JTA)—Chaim Herzog, Is-
rael's Ambassador to the
United Nations, said that
the adjournment of the
Security Council's Middle
East debate last week was
"a defeat" for the Egyp-
tians who initiated the de-
bate. The council adjourned
indefinitely without adopt-
ing any resolutions or mak-
ing any other decisions.
Diplomatic sources here
said that the Egyptians.
who wanted the council to
declare its support for the
participation of the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion in the Geneva talks,
agreed to a postponement
of the debate without a date
for reconvening when they
realized that they faced an

American veto and were
unable to guarantee the nec-
essary nine votes to pass a
resolution in the council.
In addition to American
opposition, Syria and Libya
refused to support the Egyp-
tian resolution because it
was "too moderate" in
their view.
Herzog said that Egypt's
plan at the council 'com-
pletely misfired and on The
eve of Passover, Israel ad-
ministered another Pass-
over plague against the
Egyptians." Sources here
also said that the Egyptians
backed off in order to avoid
a conflict with the United
States on the eve of Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat's visit to
Washington for talks with
President Carter.

ers. The bread may be
smeared with butter, but
the knowing eschew that
for the chicken fat
(schmaltz) that is served in
little pitchers—schmaltz is
to butter what a malted
milk is to coconut milk.
"The stuff you pay for in-
cludes, to begin, the famous
Chopped Chicken Liver,
which is soft, rich, peppery,
garlicked, and adequately
soaked with chicken fat
when you get it. However,
the boss may decide he
likes you, and he will, right
at your place, just the way
your mother did when you
broke both your hands, add
more schmaltz, as well as
slivered white radishes, and
greeven (browned strands
of skin that are a pungent
by-product of the process of
rendering chicken fat),
which converts the sturdy
food into something that is
almost overwhelmingly suc-
"Then there is the egg-
plant, which is simply
chopped baked eggplant
until you (or the boss) im-
prove it with raw onions,
perhaps, or radishes, or the
greeven, or lemon, or com-
binations thereof. For some-
thing more elemental but
equally rich, there are cold
sliced brains—three thick
slabs, and you eat them
"And for something com-
paratively dietetic, there is
pitcha, cold calf's feet in
jelly—an acquired taste,
but if you have already ac-
quired it (it can be ac-
quired at the Russian Tea
Room, where a more re-
fined version is called kholo-
detz) you will find nothing
to fault in these.
