with important figures in
the German intellectual

There are a few refer-

Most important is the

unpleasant experiences

tions no longer exist. Jewish
citizens are not interested
in coming back here, even if
they survived, and that
number is frighteningly
small. I can think of many
cities where this is true. Be-
rlin is an exception; here the
synagogue has been rebuilt.
It too had been burned out,
like all of them in Germany
— they are closed now and
just stand there, while the
insurance company build-
ings of which I am speaking
in this poem are sprouting
up like castles.
"This is a fact which any-
one can verify. I do not have
to presuppos6 much. If I
bring these two ideas to-
gether in a short poem, and
what is more, employ a cer-
tain kind of irony, then I can
expect that far more people
will understand me and
grasp what I am driving at
than if I wrote a political
editorial."

also the most violently

combined rare genius

moshav Neot Sinai near El
Arish, some IL 20 million
($800,000) in compensation
for the vegetable fields they
had to give up when El
Arish was handed over to
the Egyptians last May.
After a violent confronta-
tion with Israel Defense
Force soldiers, the settlers
agreed to give up their fields
after they were promised
adequate compensation.
However, members of the
Knesset Finance Commit-
tee claim that the ministry
had actually proposed to
pay double the value of the
fields. They said that an
assessor from the ministry
calculated the value of the
fields as if they were
covered with sophisticated
hot houses, although most
of them served to grow
watermelons.

Satmar Hasidic Leader Teitelbaum Dies

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum,
spiritual leader of the Sat-
mar Hasidic movement,
died Aug. 19 at age 93.
He was buried in a pri-
vate cemetery on the
grounds of Kiryas Joel, the
340-acre village he helped
establish in Monroe in up-
state New York.
The rabbi had led the
Satmar Hasidim in Brook-
lyn's Williamsburg section
and the Naturei Karta in
Jerusalem.
Rabbi Teitelbaum, who
was an opponent of
Zionism and the state of
Israel, maintaining that
only the Messiah could
create a Jewish state,
was born in Sigut,
Romania. He founded the
Satmar yeshiva move-
ment in nearby Satu
Mare in 1906.
At age 17, he succeeded
his father as chief rabbi of
the Satmar Hasidic move-
ment in Hungary and re- -
mained its leader until the
outbreak of World War II,
when he was imprisoned in
the Bergen-Belsen concen-
tration camp.
He escaped several times
and eventually went to Is-
rael where he became the
chief rabbi of the Satmar
Hasidim there.
He was sought after by
politicians. In 1968, Vice
President Hubert Hum-
phrey called upon Rabbi
Teitelbaum at his home in
Brooklyn where he had set-
tled to discuss tensions be-
tween some black militants

U.S. and USSR

Newsweek magazine says
the U.S. and Soviet Union
will cooperate in an effort to
prevent terrorism at the
1980 Olympic Games in
Moscow.
The USSR reportedly ap-
proached American officials
with the request for infor-
mation on terrorists. In ex-
change, the U.S. will re-
ceive data on drug traffick-
ing in countries in the
Soviet sphere, including
Vietnam and Afghanistan.

and the Jewish community.
Last March, the rabbi
appeared at a rally in
Madison Square Garden
attended by some 5,000 to
protest a road project in
Jerusalem they consid-
ered an interference with
the observance of the
Sabbath.
Rabbi Teitelbaum also
was president of the Central
Rabbinical Congress of the
United States and Canada

which reportedly represents
more than 250,000
Hasidim.
His wife, Feiga, is his only
immediate survivor.
