Independence Day... Prayer for Our Country

Traditional Prayer Recited in All Synagogues at Sabbath Services

Our God and God of our fathers, we invoke Thy blessing
upon our country, on the g:z7?rnment of this Republic, the
President of these United States and all who exercise just
and rightful authority. Do Thou instruct them out of Thy
Law, that they may administer all affairs of state in justice
and equity, that peace and security, happiness and prosper-
ity, right and freedom, may forever abide among us.
Unite all the inhabitants of our country, whatever their
origin and creed, into a bond of true brotherhood to banish

hatred and bigotry and to safeguard the ideals and free
institutions which are our country's glory.

May this land under Thy Providence be an influence for
good throughout the world, uniting men in peace and
freedom and helping to fulfill the vision of Thy prophets:
"Niztion shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall
men learn war any more." "For all men, both great and
small shall know the Lord." Amen.

Israel Views New U.S. Role As
Devaluation of True Peace Aims



4,000 Clients' Varied Needs
Described at JVS Meeting

"The story of JVS is the story of people," declared Stuart
E: Hertzberg, president, at the Jewish Vocational Service and
Community Workshop annual meeting held last week. Hertz-
berg noted that to understand JVS, one needed to know about
the more than 4,000 people who were served in its various pro-
grams. • -
He described the Russian emigre who today is working,
while only two months ago he was unemployed - and could not
speak English. He described a senior citizen employed in one
of the workshops at the Jewish Vocational Service in produc-
tive work that adds much meaning to his life.
Hertzberg noted that the true import of JVS could be found
in the client who, for many years, had sat alone at home mis-
takenly believing that he - could not work but who findlly re-
turned to work and had earned his first pay check.
JVS, he said, is the young college student finding his first
job; it is a woman who has led productive years raising a fam-
ily and who has now decided to find satisfying work outside the
_Hertzberg noted that JVS in true rehabilitation tradition
was a cooperative endeavor of many people from different
walks of life. He noted the close relations that JVS maintains
with the Jewish Family Service, Jewish Community Center,

JERUSALEM (JTA)—The U.S. State Department's formal statement Monday asserting
that Israeli withdrawal from territories on all fronts, including the West Bank, was necessary
for a "true peace" in the Middle East, took official circles In Israel by surprise. One immediate
reaction was that there is a "devaluation" of the term "true peace" by the Carter Adminis-
tration. Premier Menahem Begin was expected to make an official, public response to the
statement, when he addressed the Jewish AgencY's sixth annual General Assembly on
Official circles described the statement as "blunt" and indicated that they were disturbed
by its timing—less than a month before Begin's schedUled visit to Washington for talks with
President Carter. According to these circles, the statement appeared to contradict the
American administration's desire to mute points of disagreement with Israel in order to
establish a "comfortable" atmosphere for the Carter-Begin meeting. They were especially
upset by the statement's stress on Israeli withdrawal, its reiteration of the term "homeland" for
the Palestinians and its failure to elaborate on the relations necessary between Israel and its
neighbors to assure peace between them.
(On Tuesday, Undersecretary of State for Middle East Affairs Alfred Atherton said the
U.S. is pressing Israel to return to its pre-1967 borders because the Arabs are not willing to
compromise on the issue. Atherton also said, "We do not accept Israel's actions" as
determining the final status of Jerusalem.)
Former Premier Yitzhak Rabin called the Carter Administration statement "rude" and
said that never before had such a statement been issued prior to a visit of an Israeli premier to
Interviewed on Israeli television, Rabin said that the American attitude on the Middle East
had eroded since his visit to Washington in March although he did not know whether this was
a tactical move on the part of the Carter Administration or a real change in policy. He said this
will be better known after Premier Menahem Begin visits Washington July 19-20.
