er in his new land. The
barrier is not language or
bureaucracy, but something
more profound : as a Con-
servative or Reform Jew,
he is a minority in his new
home,- at odds with the Or-
thodoxy which dominates
religion in Israel.
Recently, I visited Is-
rael's first Reform kibutz.
Its name is Yahel, mean-
ing "light" or "glow." It is
the latest settlement to be
completed in the Arava
Desert, and it was estab-
lished last February by a
group of young soldier-set-
tlers of Nahal (the army's
Pioneer Settler Corps) who
are Reform Jews.
To these young people, the
issue of Reform Judaism in
Israel is a simple one: ei-
ther Orthodoxy shall wel-
come the Reform move-
ment, or it shall alienate a
vital- branch of Judaism, in
which case the loss of immi-
grants and support will be
tremendous.
Instead, these settlers are

committed to action. Work
begins at 4 a.m. and ends at
7 p.m. On 40 acres of Jewish
National Fund-reclaimed
land, they raise _ tomatoes,
cucumbers and onions for
export to Europe. They also
grow dates and flowers.
Yahel is about 65 kilome-
ters north from Eilat.
The vegetables, the trees
and the settlers themselves
are undergoing a water
crisis The one well in the
area has a high sulphur and
iron content, making it unfit
for drinking.
Drinking water is being
brought into the kibutz three
times a day from the
nearby settlement of
Ketura until a filtration
system is completed.
The settlers are very
young—between the ages of
18 and 20—and come from
all parts of Israel and
beyond.
Housing, air-conditioned
against the murderous heat,
is prefabricated, modern
and pleasant: single rooms

"Zionism is one of the
paradigmatic outcomes of a
colonialist experience," said
Prof. Arthur Hertzberg at a
conference on "The World
Jewish Congress and the Co-
lumbia Institute of African
Studies. Dr. Hertzberg, who
is professor of Jewish his-
tory at Columbia and a vice
president of the eVorlu Jew-

Bayard Rustin, the presi-
dent of the A. Philip Ran-

"I could substitute black for
Jewish and the book would
offer good examples of Afri-
can nationalism."

NEW YORK — Dr. Jo-
seph Churba, former mili-
tary analyst for the U.S. Air
Force, declared before the
Second National Orthodox
Leadership Conference on
Public Affairs that, "there
was more oil coming to the
United States during-the
(1973) oil embargo than be-
fore."
Quoting shipping informa-
tion from Lloyds of London
to back up his statement,
Dr. Churba accused the oil
companies of manipulating
supplies at the gas station
pump to make the quin-
tupled oil prices more ac-
ceptable.

The kibutz has a small

authorities and the Reform
Movement in the United
