Religion in an Aging Society

By RABBI MARC
TANENBAUM

(A Seven Arts Feature)

"Old age is not a defeat
but a victory, not a punish-
ment but a privilege. In
education we stress the im-
portance of the adjustment
of the young to society. Our
task is to call for the ad-
justment of society to the
old."
Those penetrating words
were spoken by my late
blessed teacher and friend,
Rabbi Abraham Joshua
Heschel, the great Jewish
theologian, during a
memorable address before
the 1961 White House Con-
ference on Aging. These
views are all the more re-
levant to the 1981 Confer-
ence on Aging which is now

being organized.
During the next 50 years,
America's population will
double in the number of its
older citizens. We need to
face the hard fact that
America has been a youth
and achievement society,
dominated by competitive-
ness and production of
material goods. Both
Judaism and Christianity
need to help all Americans
realize that the worth of a
person is not to be measured
by his or her usefulness to
society, but rather that a
human being is valuable in
himself or herself.
Care for the old is still
regarded as an act of
charity; it must rather
become an act of sever-
ance, of supreme

and his

privilege as it has been in
most ancient civiliza-
tions.



As the 1981 White House
Conference will seek to
make clear, being old is not
the same as being stale.

IT IS INTOLERABLE . .
AMERICA'S FAILURE TO VETO UN JERUSALEM
RESOLUTION ENDANGERS ISRAEL

The Security Council of the United Nations in an
effort to delegitimize the State of Israel, a member
nation, has in a vote of 14-0 urged that all embassies
be withdrawn from Jerusalem. The United States
effectively supported the resolution by abstaining
rather than casting a veto.
The rejection of Jerusalem as the capital of the
Jewish state by the United Nations is reinforced by
the tragic positions taken by the Carter administra-
tion. Up to now, UN resolutions have been viewed as
unpleasant and nasty rhetoric. But the resolution
passed by the Security Council calling on all embas-
sies in Jerusalem to be withdrawn goes beyond verbal
onslaught against the Jewish state. The resolution
calls for direct action against Israel and, in fact, is a
sanction. The UN resolution is a most dangerous and
sinister development and its far-reaching conse-
quences are cause for immediate and great alarm.
Secretary of State Muskie in his speech to the UN
described the resolution as "unbalanced," "unrealis-
tic," "fundamentally flawed" and "disruptive." Yet in
spite of those arguments against the resolution,
President Carter decided to abstain rather than to
veto. In explaining the position taken by the United
States, Secretary of State Muskie refers to a "common
vision of this ancient city's future — an undivided
Jerusalem with free access to the holy places for
people of all faiths." It is regrettable that the Secre-
tary of State did not acknowledge that his vision has
been fulfilled. Israel has made possible freedom of
worship for all faiths.

The American Administration seems not to under-
stand that the actions of the United Nations are or-
chestrated in Moscow, the center of world anti-
Semitism, whose objective is to make Israel the
scapegoat for all the ills of the world. The Adminis-
tration permits itself to be victimized by this Soviet
manipulation.
Those who negotiate the future of Jerusalem cannot
disregard an important partner — the Jewish people
in the Diaspora. Jerusalem is not an internal political
issue of concern only to the people of the State of
Israel. Jerusalem is the eternal and holy city of all the
Jewish people. It is and will remain the capital of the
Jewish State, notwithstanding policies made by the
State Department of the United States.

,

The latest decisions by the United States on the issue
of Jerusalem raises serious questions. Does our
great nation decide its own destiny? Should not
Americans question why outside influences deter-
mine the location of an American Embassy? Should
not Americans be indignant that\ our policy appears
to be influenced by international blackmail? These
are some of the serious questions which confront the
Jewish people as we gather during the Holy Days of
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to search our minds
and innermost feelings.

ZOA ACTIN GUIDELINE

Write to President Carter and Secretary of State Muskie to express your outrage at their capitualation to oil
blackmail as shown by the failure to veto the repulsive actions of the United Nations intended to turn Jerusalem over
to Arab rule, deprive the Jewish people of the focus of their spiritual life, destroy their historic past and which ignores
that the democracy of Israel is the only country in the Middle East where both Arabs and Jews as well as Christians
enjoy the human rights espoused by Mr. Carter and that Jerusalem, under Israel, already enjoys the "free access to
the holy places for people of all faiths" that Mr. Muskie has called for. Send ZOA a copy.
