PARIS (JTA) — Dr.
Nahum Goldmann,
president of the Conference
on Jewish Material Claims
Against Germany, said last
week that the 440 million
Marks ($200 million) West
Germany has accepted to
pay as a last and final set-
tlement under the restitu-
tion agreement "was the
very best which could be ob-
tained."
Of this total, '40 million
Marks is earmarked for the
needs of the Jewish com-
munity in Germany. The
remaining 400 million
Marks is a hardship fund for
Jewish victims of Nazi per-
secution who were pre-
vented from filing timely
claims under existing Ger-
man indemnification legis-
lation because they came
out of East Europe after the

"A rabbi looks at Christ-
mas," an article written for
the New York Daily News
deals at length with the im-
pact that the Christmas and
Hanuka festivals have on
the spirit of New Yorkers,
and also details my first
memorable Christmas ex-
perience.
When I was a child, I lived
in Baltimore, and my par-
ents owned a grocery in a
poor, working-class
neighborhood. My father

and mother were immig-
rants from Russia, and as
devout Orthodox Jews, they
took their religion seri-
ously. All of us in that
neighborhood — Irish, Ita-
lians, and Jews — had suf-
fered desperately through
the depression years to-
gether.
On the afternoon of Dec.
24, 1940, I found my mother
in the backs of our store tak-
ing groceries from half-bare
shelves. She was packing
them into baskets and tied
red and green ribbons
around them. I asked her
what she was doing, and she
answered that she had just
found out that several of our
Christiari neighbors were
stonebroke and did not have
enough money to buy food
for a Christmas dinner.
"It is Christmas," my
mother said, "and it
would be terrible if Mrs.
Kirby and her family, and
the other neighbors,
would gohungry on their
holiday." And this Or-
thodox Jewish woman
went out into the
neighborhood handing
out Christmas baskets.
I often think of that lovely
moment as I walk the
streets of New York at this
season of the year and won-
der why this spirit of people
caring for other people pre-
vails mainly from De-
cember to January, and why
not from January to De-
cember?

must understand that it
took six years of tough
negotiations to obtain even
this sum."
Goldmann, who said that
West Germany will eventu-
ally have paid a total of
close to 90 billion Marks
under the various inde-
mnification agreements,
"just refused to pay more."
The former World
Jewish Congress
president said he had
countless meetings, first
with Chancellor Willy
Brandt and then with his
successor Chancellor
Helmut Schmidt to ob-
tain the 440 million
Marks. Goldmann said
that some of the strings
attached to the latest sum
are tough, but he stressed
that "it was this or- noth-
ing at all."

Long after you have gone, forests in Israel
renewing themselves in the cycle of sea-

When making your Will, provide that a
forest in lrael be planted in your name or

down your last wish from generation to
generation.

entire Jewish people, linking the name
of the Testator with Israel in perpetuity.
