Church Spiei?

The Israeli press is charging
that a number of Russian
Orthodox clerics in
Jerusalem are high-
ranking members of the
Soviet Secret Service.

The press charges that
the Church gathers infor-
mation for the Soviet
Union, as well as the Pales-
tine Liberation Organiza-
tion. The papers speculate
that Israel has made it
known to the USSR that the
clerics' activities are being
watched, and that eventu-
ally they will be recalled.

Begin Rejects 'Interim' Proposal

Premier Menahem Begin
rejected a proposal made
last week by President
Anwar Sadat of Egypt for
"an interim settlement"
that would call for Israel to
return the West Bank to
Jordan and the Gaza Strip
to Egypt as a temporary
measure pending a final de-
cision on the future of those

rael's peace plan with one of
their own for mutual dis-
cussion. "The conditions of
peace cannot be dictated to
Israel but must be the sub-
ject of discussions with Is-
rael," he said.
Sources said Egypt has
still not responded to Be-
gin's latest letter to
Sadat, over a month ago,
calling for resumption of
peace talks. Meanwhile,

Addressing a European
delegation of the Israel
Bond Organization, Begin
called on Sadat to restore
the "good spirit of the
Jerusalem and Ismailia
talks." He said it was time

UNRWA Retreat

(ZINS) — The United Na-
tions Relief and Works
Agency has drawn a storm
of protest from Palestinians
and Lebanese after it an-
nounced that it was with-
drawing its headquarters
from Beirut.
A UNRWA spokesman
said it will continue to serve
the Palestinians in Leba-
non, but was withdrawing
its offices because of attacks
on its representatives and
the fighting in Lebanon.

I Don't Want to Sell You A Car.
I Want To Help You Buy One.

You work hard for your money.
So do I.

But I don't think that a low price
alone is enough to get you to
spend your money at Jerry
Glassman Olds, or any other
car dealership.
I believe people want to
buy their car from a
dealership they can put
their trust in. A dealership
that'll work as hard for their
money as they did. Making sure
things are right — before, during
and after the sale.
When you visit Glassman Olds,
we'll help you pick out a car that's
right for the kind of driving you do.
Then we'll quote you a fair price. A
price as low as any in town.

Maybe lower.
And, after the sale, you'll find
our smiles are just as wide,
our handshakes just as friendly
when you come in for a free
warranty check.

That's the way I run things at
Jerry Glassman Oldsmobile.

Come in and see for yourself.

"A Passover Haggada,"
the newest to be published
by Penguin Books for the
Central Conference of
American Rabbis, contains
many interpretive features.
It is a revised edition that
was made available on the
eve of the last Passover. It
contains, as in its predeces-
sors, the traditional text,
thus making the volume
usable by other than Re-
form Jews.
Then there are the defini-
tive articles by the editor,
Rabbi Herbert Bronstein
and his associates.
In the preface, the editor
points out inter alia:
"Over the generations,
the clarity of the Seder's
classic form was blurred
and even marred through
changes or interpreta-
tions of the text of the
Haggada as the genera-
tions responded to the
demands of immediate
historic circumstances.
One example will suffice:
At some point, the origi-
nal opening thematic
statement of the Hag-
gada, 'A fugitive Ara-
mean was my father,' was
transformed into a
polemic against a con-
temporaneous Syrian

the Cairo news media
warned over the
weekend that the Middle
East was moving back to
the pre-1973 situation.
Cairo radio said Sadat's
pledge in Jerusalem that
the 1973 war would be the
last could not be fulfilled
unless Israel withdrew from
all the Arab territories it
occupied in 1967.

foe, and the text was
translated, 'An Aramean
sought to destroy my
Our own historic
perspective, and our free-
dom to break with strict
adherence to the text
handed down to us from late
medieval times, enable us to
engage in a work of restora-
tion. Indeed, one purpose
(though not the only one) of
this Haggada is to allow the
genius of the original to
speak to us again; to permit
the discovery of patterns
and designs in the texture of
the liturgy itself without
undue didactic pointing.
"So this Haggada is not a
revision of the previous
Union Haggada. It is an at-
tempt at renovating an orig-
inal, a return to the creative
beginning so as to bring
forth what is utterly new
from what was present in
the old."
An historical resume of
the Passover, prepara-
tions for the Seder and
many annotations sup-
plement the text.
The songs appended, with
music, serve the partici-
pants in the Seder in giving
impetus and enjoyment to
the festival's observance.

French UNIFIL Casualties
Causing Problems at Home


PARIS (JTA) — France is
shocked, surprised and
pained at the losses it has
suffered in Lebanon: offi-
cially, two dead and nine
wounded, including the
commander of the French
paratrooper unit serving
with the United Nations
Interim Force in Lebanon
The public, which has
been shown terrifying
scenes from Lebanon on
television, wonders aloud:
"Do we need to suffer dead
and wounded?" The press is
critical, with one paper, Le
Monde, going so far as to
compare France's involve-
ment in Lebanon with
America's involvement in
the Vietnam War.
The French Adminis-
tration and even the gov-
ernment itself had al-
ways been deeply di-
vided over the very prin-
ciple of a French armed

involvement in Lebanon.
The Quai d'Orsay and
most other French minis-
tries — with the excep-
tion of the Ministry of De-
fense — had energetically
opposed all plans to send
French troops on
"peacekeeping" missions
to Lebanon.
These officials pointed
out that such an involve-
ment would endanger
France's friendly relations
with both Israel and the
Arab world. They also
warned that a relatively
small French contingent
would by necessity become
even larger as more men
and equipment would be
This would rapidly be-
come, they said, a financial
burden and eventually
weaken French participa-
tion in European defense
measures, thus creating
friction with its NATO

`Mock' Bullfight
to Be Staged

rael's Council for the
Supervision of Films, Plays
and Performances has ruled
that a mock bullfight can go
on as long as there is no ac-
tual bullfight.
The Council, which is Is-
rael's censorship board, ap-
proved by a slim majority a
"Spanish fiesta" being
staged by local impresario
Aharon Berman, later this
Berman promised that
while there will be bulls,
matadors and toreadors,
there will be no swords or
spears used and the bulls
will not be harmed.

The Council ruled that
the word "bullfight"
must be removed from all
of the fiesta's advertise-
ments and that an inspec-
tor from the Council will
be at all performances
and will stop it im-
mediately if any actual
bullfighting takes place.

There had been wide-
spread demands in Israel
and abroad for cancellation
of the event.

Nets $4 Million

More than two million
people, ranging in age from
six weeks to 103 years,
raised $4 million while ex-
pressing their solidarity
with the people of Israel in
the second annual national
United Jewish Appeal
walk-a-thon, held in 213
participating communities
in the U.S. and Canada.

As many as four genera-
tions of American Jewish
families marched and sang
in every conceivable kind of
weather to achieve the re-
cord result: from Bur-
lington, where 47 people
walked in bone-chilling
28-degree weather; to De-
nver, where more than
$20,000 was raised by 550
participants who walked
despite the worst
snowstorm in the city in 28
years (and where every
event but the walk-a-thou
was cancelled); to Los
Angeles where 25,000 wal-
kers were later joined by
more than 10,000 people
during Israel 30th anniver-
sary festivities in Rancho
