willing and eager to talk (-)
with any potential partner
in that process, with the
precondition: (1) renuncia-

recognition of the state of <
Israel as a sovereign state."
Orly Lubin, also from Is-
stated: "We acknowl- C

the result, over the lung
term, is a secure peace, lead-
ing to stability of the .
region."
Certainly a far cry from
the New York Times report
that the debate was widen-
ing. At best the meeting
indicated, in the words of -
Fein, "A broadening and a
new openness in the range
of opinion and expression"
among American Jews.

Another event, also un-
scheduled, which drew wide
attention at the assembly
was a meeting of represen-
tatives of the Israeli Peace
Now movement, convened
under the sponsorship of
Leonard Fein, editor of
Moment magazine, Dr. Irv-
ing Greenber g , director of
the National Jewish Re-
source Center in New York
City, and Prof. Allen Pol-
lack, chairman of the Labor
Zionist Alliance and a
member of the Jewish
Agency's board of gover-
nors.
The New York Times de-
scribed the meeting with a
four-column headline:
"North American Jews

litany of their grievances
were repeated in full. Sev-
eral Sephardic spokesmen
noted that although their
brethren in countries such
as France and the United
States were successful
businessmen, lawyers and
doctors, their brethren in
Israel had been unable to
attain similar positions.
Dulzin said the Sephar-
dim exaggerated the situa-
tion in Israel, that the gov-
ernment was doing all it can
to ameliorate the conditions
of the Sephardim and that
the insistence on describing
Israel as a diochotomous
Ashkenazic-Sephardic
society was erroneous.
"There are no Sephardim
and no Ashkenazim in Is-
rael," Dulzin declared.
"There are only Jews in Is-
rael."
The resolution, submit-
ted on behalf of the
Sephardic Federation by
the Allied Jewish Com-
munity Services of
Montreal, acknowledged
"a social disintegration
of the large majority of
Sephardic Jews in Israel
and the growing social
gap is threatening the
unity and stability of the
Jewish state."
The resolution urged that
concrete steps be taken in
the Diaspora to strengthen
the relationship between
Ashkenazim and Sephar-
dim "and work jointly to
combat assimilation, dis-
seminate Sephardic culture
widely among Ashkenazim
and Sephardim, encourage
and support the advance-
ment of those Sephardic
organizations in local com-
munities and nationally
which aim to preserve and
enhance Sephardic culture
and which develop a sense of
Jewish unity with all other
groups in the community."

thus adopted as a com-
promise.
Some writers feel that
this compromise was to
serve as a model for people
in or out of the room.
Human relations can never
be absolute, i.e. between
husband and wife or be-
tween parents and children
or between friends.
If the relationship is to
continue in its ideal form
there must be a willing-
ness to compromise be-
tween humans. Stubbor-
ness can only lead to bad
feelings and disruption of
life between families and
friends.
