Mea Shearim's
Rafael Clinic

By MOSHE RON

The Jewish News
Special Israel Correspondent

TEL AVIV—Instead

He records the trials and
portrays the prejudiced
judges and false witnesses.
His descriptions of the slave
labor camps, where he was
enslaved for many years,
undoubtedly, will serve as
source material for future
historians.
Kopelev relates numerous
anti-Semitic incidents he
encountered. The following
is a typical one:
"'What do we have here?
First you presume to attack
the decisions of the Soviet
government and the high
command, and now you
have the audacity to
demand that we give you
back your Party card.'
" 'I insisted that I hadn't
made 'these attacks,
exposed by the sworn testi-
mony of Major Goldstein,
who was present during the
conversation when accord-
ing to Zabashtansky's lying
report . . .
" 'Naturally,
Goldstein
sticks up for him,' said a
blond, square-faced colonel.
`So we're to believe a Gold-
stein, I suppose, while a
front-line Russian officer is
to be dismissed as
slanderer.'
" 'Shame on you!' I cried.
`Goldstein is just as good a
Soviet officer as Zabash-
tansky, just as much a
front-line soldier. I never
expected to hear that kind
of talk here !"'
It is worthy of note that
Kopelev never menlions his
Jewishness, although he
professes : "This blend of
Christian communism and
pragmatic common sense
became my faith for many
years." Had Kopelev been
acquainted with Jewish his-
tory and studied com-
parative religion, he would
have known that the

Essenes practiced broth-
erhood and authentic com-
munism long before there
were Jewish Christians.
It is significant to point
out that Solzhenitsyn has.
been criticized for not not-
ing in his books the cold-
blooded murder of the hun-
dreds of Jewish intellectuals
committed by the Soviet
government. Lev Kopelev
deserves the same repr-
oach. He, moreover, should
be reproached for failing to
mention, even in passing,
the cultural genocide per-
petrated by his government
against the Soviet Jews.
Kopelev's indifference to
Jews and Judaism can only
be explained by this
confession:
"As late as 1953, the
year before hundreds Jew-
ish intellectual were mur-
dered by the Soviet secret
police, MGB, now KGB, if
another war had broken out,
we would probably have
marched off as volunteers
with the old cry of 'For the
Motherland!- For Stalin!'
And if as late as then, the
planned resettlement of the
Jews into a Socialist ghetto
in the Far East had actually
occurred, even there, on the
Armur River, there would
have been thousands of
young men eager to rush off
to Korea, Vietnam, Cuba or
Taiwan - any front any-
where - to prove that they
`belonged' and even more -
fundamentally, to carry out
what they felt to be their
duty to the main, great
cause."

TEL AVIV—There is an
organization in Israel,
called The Association of
Religious Jewish Scientists,
most of whose members are
experts in the fields of
mechanics and electronics.
This organization has car- .
ried through an
investigation of the causes
of heart attacks. The study
lasted more than five years
and dealt with more than
10,000 Jews in Israel over 40
years old who had been
treated for heart disease.
Besides causes such as the
high rate of cholesterol in
the blood, smoking etc. the
investigation found further
reasons such as blood cate-
gory, country of birth and
relations within the family.
The study found that the
percentage of religious
people who suffer from
heart diseases is much
lower than among the non-
reli 'ous.
The organization held -its
convention in Jerusalem
and in the religious Bar-Ilan
University in Ramat Gan.
At the convention Dr. Dov
Erlich from the medical
faculty at Tel Aviv Univer-
sity declared that on the
basis of his medical expe-
rience, the religious family
is generally in better phys-
ical condition and is health-
ier, more united, cahrier,
and has less worries. Also,

magazines, one will find
copies of the Talmud in the
waiting room of the Rafael
Clinic in Jerusalem.
Located in the ultra-Ortho-
dox Mea Shearim quarter,
the waiting room also fea-
tures a curtain separating
male from female patients.
According to assistant
director Dr. Avraham
Cohen; the clinic was
opened after a survey
showed that inhabitants of
the quarter relied more on
medications rather than
physicians when they fell ill.
Another innovation the
clinic has introduced is
gynecological examiniations
for the Orthodox women,
who have heretofore refused
such treatment. The women
are examined by a female
gynecologist. Moreover, the
clinic provides a baby-sit-
ting service for mothers
who leave their children at
home while they are at the
doctor's.
Because many of the Mea
Shearim residents are in a
low-income bracket or do
not subscribe to the national
health plans, many patients
are treated at no charge.
Likewise, the clinic has con-
tracted some Jerusalem
pharmacies to sell patients
drugs at reduced prices.
However, the clinic plans to
have its own pharmacy.
The Rafael Clinic accepts
patients of all religious per-
suasions although it estab-
lished for the Jewish Ortho-
dox. The clinic receives
support throughout Israel,
as well as from Orthodox
Jews around the world.

TEANECK, N.J. (JTA)—
A United Jewish Commu-
nity of Bergen County has
been organized to bring into
a single umbrella agency a
variety of organizations
presently collecting funds
separately for the United
_Jewish Appeal and local,
national and overseas
causes.

The latest addition to the
"gulag" (Russian acronym
for Central Administration_
of Corrective Labor
Camps" ) literature is Lev
Kopelev's 961-page auto-
biography "To Be Pre-
served Forever" (J. B. Lip-
pincott ). The Russian
edition of the original 729-
page text was published by
Ardis at Ann Arbor, Mich.
The autobiography
includes a foreword by Lil-
lian Hellman and an after-
word by Robert G. Keiser.
The translator, Anthony
Austin, is a journalist and a
former Moscow
correspondent.
Lev Kopelev commences
his life story by relating his
experiences at the front dur-
ing the Second World War
and by describing his
counter-espionage activities
in Prussia and East
Prussia.
He portrays vividly and
eloquently the military per-
sonnel he served with, and
details the trumped-up
charges leveled against
him. Among others, he was
accused of "undermining
the morale and political
consciousness of the Soviet
troops, discrediting the
Soviet command, disrupting
military operations; propa-
ganda in favor of the
enemy, pity for the Ger-
mans, and slandering the
allies."
The author, moreover,
records his arrests ; deli-
neates the prisons he was
confined in, including
Butyrki prison; depicts
their inmates, the inhuman
conditions within the prison
walls, and the brutal meth-
ods of interrogating accused
and witnesses.

HOLLYWOOD—Fred Zin-
nemann, Academy Award
winner for "From Here to
Eternity" and "A Man for
All Seasons," most recently
completed- on locations in
England and on the conti-
nent filming of Lillian Hel-
lman's "Julia," an episode
from the famed novelist's
autobiographical book
"Pentimento," detailing a
lifelong friendship between
Ms. Hellman and a mys-
terious woman who per-
ished in Nazi Germany on
the eve of World War II.
("Julia" is produced by
Richard Roth for 20th Cen-
tury-Fox.)
Fred Zinnemann, today
70, is a native of Vienna,
who studied camera tech-
niques in Paris and came to
the United States at age 22.
A master of the visual
expression, Zinnemann's
cinematic work remains
compassionate throughout;
the dilemma of the hero in
"High Noon," the crisis of
conscience in "A Man for
All Seasons"; the conflict of
a loving woman reflected in
"The Nun's Story"; and the
tension of an assassination
plot in "The Day of the

were
There"
Jackal."
"Teresa," "The Men,"
"Member of the Wedding,"
"Sundowners," "Hatful of
Rain" and "Behold a Pale
Horse." Just as Robert Fla-
herty whom Zinnemann
assisted in the early 1930s,
Zinnemann has never com-
promised, rather made
fewer pictures.

James Caan appears as a
horse doctor of the Old West
in "Another Man, Another
Chance," French • director
Claude . Lelouch's first Hol-
Iywood picture in which
evieve Bujold portrays
a Parisian emigree. Lelonh
rose to fame with "A Man
and A Woman" which won
the 1966 Cannes Film Festi-
val award. I was deeply
impressed with "Vivre pour
Vivre," an indictment of
war; and "Toute une Vie,"
which dealt with a Jewish
family throughout 50 years,
and won Lelouch an Acad-
emy Award for his own
screenplay.
The picture is produced
for United Artists release by
French-Russian movie vet-
eran Alexandre Mnouchkine
who has been associated
`-"with the films of Lelouch for
more than 10 years.

Whether Kopelev has ever
recanted his unconcern for
the Jewish people and their
culture, cannot be ascer-
tained from his life story.
He did, however, reject the
Bolshevik immoral
practices :
"But I came, at length, to
understand. I came to
understand that my fate,
which had seemed so sense-
lessly, so undeservedly
cruel, was actually fortu-
nate and just. It was just
because I did deserve to be
punished — for the many
years I had zealously partic-
ipated in plundering the
peasants, worshipping Sta-
lin, lying and deceiving
myself in the name of 'his-
torical necessity,' and
teaching others to believe in
lies and - to bow before
scoundrels."
Lev Kopelev, according to
the afterword by Robert G.
Keiser, was instrumental in
having Solzhenitsyn's novel
"One Day in the Life of
Ivan Denisovich" published.
Thus Kopelev helped launch
"one of the most dramatic
literary careers in the 20th
Century."
Lev Kopelev was the
character after whom Sol-
zhenitsyn modeled Lev
Rubin in "The First
arde."
Solzhenitsyn and Kopelev
shared the same "com-
forts" in the same slave
labor camps.
Anthony Austin's trans-
lation of Lev Kopelev's "To
Be Preserved Forever" is
excellent.

Israeli Doctors Determine
Religious Jews Are Healthier

the religious, woman is
closer and more dedicated
to her husband and chil-
dren. The religious family
keeps together on the Sab-
bath, which - fosters unity,
mutual family interests and
causes satisfaction and
health, according to the
doctor.
Prof. H. Blandheim from
Hadassah Hospital in
Jerusalem said, that reli-
gious Jews, who rest on the
Sabbath suffer less from
heart diseases. Research
carried out among the
scholars of Netiv Meir
Yeshiva in Jerusalem
showed that their blood
pressure was generally bet-
ter than average. The con-
centration of free oxygen
which often also causes
heart•diseases was less.
Rabbi Yizhak Halperin
and Uri Desberg, who head.
the religious department in
the Technion described the
invention of a special kqttle
which can heat water With-
out breaking the laws of the
Sabbath.
Rabbi Israel Rosen spoke
about the invention of an
electric wheel chair which
can be operated on Shabat
without breaking the Shabat
laws. Engineer Menahem
Hartman, who is working in
the Defense Ministry, dem-
onstrated inventions which
can operate factory machin-
ery on the Sabbath without
breaking the Sabbath rules.
