`Moses' Carter Attends Adviser's Seder

By TRUDE FELDMAN

WASHINGTON —'If this
Passover is different from
all others because of the
Egyptian-Israeli peace
treaty, the man who helped
make it possible also added
to the spirit of the holiday
by his presence at a tradi-
tions Seder.
Jimmy Carter — in an
unmarked limousine —
rode with his wife from the
ite House to the home of
an , and Stuart E.
zenstat, his 36-year-old
assistant for domestic af-
fairs and policy. They ar-
rived at the start of the first
Seder and remained until
the end — three hours later.
"There was a .lovebi-- ex-
pression on the President's
face when he listened to my
two sons recite the Four
Questions," Eizenstat told
me. "It was the first time for

Synagogue Ruin
Jails 2 in Paris

PARIS (JTA) — Two men
were arrested Wednesday
in Strasbourg and charged
with ransacking two local
synagogues last weekend.
The two men were arrested
by the police as they were
leaving the court after
. being charged with ran-
sacking local Catholic
churches.
Police say the two men,
whose names were not re-
leased, had specialized in
robbing the alms boxes in
local churches. They repor-
tedly told investigators they
ransacked the synagogues
when they failed to find an
alms box and started look-
ing for it.
The police say the attacks
were carried out for pure
criminal purposes with no
anti-Semitic or political
motivations. The two have
long criminal records and
police investigators said
they believe they might
have carried out similar at-
tacks elsewhere in France.

French Probe
Desecration of
3 Synagogues

PARIS (JTA) — Three
synagogues, two in Alsatia
and one in south France,
were ransacked last
weekend. Windows were
broken, books. and Torah
scrolls thrown • on the
ground and swastikas
painted on the walls.
t Antibes, in the south of
ce, vandals also broke
esks, chairs and orna-
ments. In all three cases the
police believe that right-
wing fringe elements are
responsible for the profana-
tions.
The Strasbourg commu-
nity is organizing a mass
demonstration Saturday to
ask for increased police pro-
tection, and in Lyons a
meeting was held to protest
against the forthcoming
congress in that city of the
extreme right-wing New
Europe movement. Police
officials said that all meas-
ures will be taken to try and
ensure the safety of Jewish
property in the country.

tapped my knee to indicate I
should give them the chance
to do it one their own."

"job" was to open the

Jay startled everyone
when he first ran around
to the back door to ask
the President's Secret
Service agents for per-

door.
President Carter was "to-
tally absorbed" in the
"Seder" proceedings, focus-
ing his complete attention
on every aspect. "He was
not, in any way, distracted
by outside events,"
Eizenstat said, adding,
"And none of us felt uncom-
fortable with the President
of the United States at the
Seder table. He put us at
ease, and we felt right at
home — where we were!
I've known President and

Israel to Host
1980 Eurovision

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Broadcasting
Authority has decided to
hold the 1980 Eurovision
song contest in Israel for the
second consecutive year. In
a 5-1 vote, the Authority's
board of directors decided
that by holding the songfest
again in Israel the positive
image accorded Israel
abroad would outweigh any
expenses or problems incur-
red in organizing the_e-vent
a second time.
Israel _received the right
to host the contest due to
placing first in the competi-
tion this year, with Gali
Atari and the "Milk and
Honey" group's rendition of
"Hallelujah."
The board asked the gov-
ernment to finance next
year's event, so as not to
push the Authority into
bankruptcy. While the pro-
posal to hold the contest
again in Israel was made by
Authority chairman Re-
uven Yaron and Director
General Yoseph Lapid, TV
director Arnon Zuckerman
opposed the plan, noting
that the Eurovision contest
"disrupted TV's regular
work and its ability to fulfill
its running obligations."

Jews, Egyptians
Celebrate Treaty

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.
(JTA) — The Jewish and
Egyptian communities of
Minneapolis and St. Paul
joined together in a cere-
mony of thanksgiving to
honor the peace treaty be-
tween Egypt and Israel.
More than 1,500 people
gathered at the College of
St. Thomas to listen to the
Aaron Kula Orchestra play
Israeli music and to the
Middle Eastern Ensemble
playing the music of Egypt
as well as their special ar-
rangement of "Hava
Nagila."

them to feel like they were a
part of our family for one
evening.
"But, more importantly,
reading the Haggada would
never be the same for us as
it had been before the peace
treaty (between Egypt and
Israel) was signed."
The Eizenstats also
wanted the President to
participate in the first
Seder after the treaty, to
"re-emphasize the his-
toric nature of what he
had helped to accomplish
and what that achieve-
ment signified after 3,000
years of history."

"What struck me most
about the President's par-
ticipation was his tremen-
dous_ interest in every facet
of the holiday," Eizenstat
said. "He was truly able to
contribute from his own
knowledge to the history of
the festival."
As an example, the
President mentioned a pas-
sage in Isaiah in which
Isaiah had prophesied that
Israel and Egypt would
make a peace pact, which
would eventually be the
bridge for peace between Is-
rael and all of her
neighbors.
