Egyptian Defense Minister
Kamal Hassan Ali as yet
another sign of "the resolute
decision of both our nations
to progress toward peace
and carry out the peace
treaty to the letter."
Hassan Alis message was
read by an Egyptian army
officer during ceremonies at
the Bir Naseb Oasis where
the Israeli flag was hauled
down and the Egyptian flag
raised, marking the second
stage of Israel's withdrawal
from Sinai. The area re-
turned today lies along the
Gulf of Suez and contains
the famous Alma Offshore
Oil Fields, the most prod-
uctive oil fields found by Is-
rael during its 12-year oc-
cupation of Sinai.
The region is inhabited
by about 4,000 Bedouins.

MR. V's

The tribal chiefs and not-
ables invited to the cere-
monies came on donkeys
and camels, some in
trucks and tractors and a
few in private cars. The
Moslem Fast of Ramadan
is in progress so no re-
freshments were served.
But tonight the Bedouins
will hold their Fan-
tasiyeh, a traditional
oriental festival, to celeb-
rate the return of the
region to Egyptian sov-
ereignty.
Meanwhile Brig. Gen.
Dov Sion, the senior Israeli
member of the joint
Israeli-Egyptian Coordinat-
ing Committee, recited
some statistics to show how
the Bedouins have bene-
fited from more than a de-
cade of Israeli rule. He said
there are now 243 cars in
the region where there were
none in 1967; 11 schools
where none existed 12 years
ago; 10 medical clinics and
two tribal water installa-
tions where there were none
before.
As a, farewell gift, the Is-
raeli government distrib-
uted five kilograms of flour
to each of the 4,000 Be-
douins, a bottle of oil and IL
20 per head.
Under the peace treaty,
the next transfer of Sinai
territory to Egypt will take
place in four months. It will
include a monastery and the
southernmost tip of the
peninsula. Two more sec-
tions, one in the north and
one in the south, will be
handed over in six months.
By then, the Israeli-
Egyptian demarcation line
will extend from El Arish on
the Mediterranean coast to
Sharm El-Sheikh on the
Red Sea. The remaining
territory, extending from
that line to the old interna-
tional boundary between Is-
rael and Egypt will be re-
turned at the end of three
years from the date of ratifi-
cation of the peace treaty.

JEWISH INVENTORY: Interest in greater knowl-
edge of their Jewish roots is markedly increasing in
American-born Jews. There is a growing sense among in-
tellectuals that the American Jewish community is moving
into an unprecedented period of cultural maturity. There is
practically no publishing firm in the United States today
that does not include books of specific-interest to Jewish
readers in planning its list of new books for each season.
Books of Jewish knowledge in English — including
translations of works of Jewish thinkers in ancient time
and in the Middle Ages — are now being published in this
country in an ever-increasing number.
The University of Chicago Press is publishing this fall
the monumental work of Dr. Max Weinreich, "History of
the Yiddish Language," in English translation. The work
was originally written in Yiddish by Dr. Weinreich, a noted
philologist and professor of Columbia University and was
published in Yiddish in four volumes by the YIVO Institute
for Jewish Research of which the author was a founder and
the guiding spirit. Other American universities — like
Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia — have similarly pub-
lished great books of Jewish history and Jewish knowledge.
Among the works published by Columbia is Prof. Salo Ba-
ron's "Social and Religious History of the Jews" in several
volumes, one of the greatest classics of Jewish history.
The total of books in Judaica published in this country
during the last decades by commercial publishing houses,
Jewish organizations, and American colleges and univer-
sities is perhaps larger than the total ofJewish books pub-
lish ,.d in all lands and in all languages since printing was
invented. A full inventory of these sources of Jewish cul-
ture is considered by some in the American Jewish commu-
nity as long overdue.
A beginning in this direction has now been made by the
National Foundation of Jewish Culture with the publica-
tion this month of "Inventory of Jewish Cultural Re-
sources."
GUIDE TO COMMUNITIES: The inventory pub-
lished by the foundation is limited in scope. It is a pioneer-
ing venture. It limits itself to the catalogues of national
Jewish agencies engaged in publishing books and other
educational material and in promoting Jewish knowledge.
"Inventory" does not list the publishing activities by
commercial Jewish publishing houses like Schocken, Ktav
and others which play a very important role in the publica-
tion of books on Jewish subjects. Nor does it include general
publishing houses or American colleges and universities.
However, "Inventory" offers a considerable wealth of
information on the cultural materials and services pro-
duced by educational, communal, religious, student,
Zionist, Yiddishist and fraternal organizations. Its main
aim is to help Jewish communities to strengthen Jewish
identity through their cultural projects by directing them
to Jewish organizational resources of Jewish heritage.
A colorful picture of national organizations of all
shades in the American Jewish community active in prom-
oting Jewish knowledge emerges from "Inventory." Im-
pressive is the catalogue of Bnai Brith, listing extensive
program and educational resources available for adult
Jewish education, the publications catalogue of the Na-
tional Jewish Welfare Board, especially the listings of its
Jewish Book Council and Jewish Music Council; the publi-
cations catalogue of the American Association for Jewish
Education, especially its books on Jewish civics and on the
Holocaust; the 60-page 1978 catalogue of the American
Jewish Committee, listing books and pamphlets published
by the AJCommittee on Judaism, intergroup relations and
human rights; also the 64-page listing of books and other
materials published by the Anti-Defaniation League on
human relations for the school, church and community; the
publication list of Hadassah on adult education; and the
100-page listing of books, periodicals, filmstrips, records
and. tapes by the American Section of the World Zionist
Organization.
Of the national religious organizations engaged in
publishing books for adults, text books for children, musi-
cal recordings and plays produced in English, the
Lubavitch-Hasidic movement, with its 30-page annotated
catalogue, occupies an important place in "Inventory." So
does the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, cen-
tral body of Reform Jewry, with its publications catalogue
and its youth division resources catalogue. Similarly, the
Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations' 54-page
catalogue has a rich listing of books and booklets on Jewish
life, as has the Torah Umesorah catalogue.
A number of important sources are missing, but in
general, "Inventory" is a good beginning which will be of
valuable service to Jewish communities, organizations,
synagogues and clubs seeking sources for material to use in
their cultural programs.
