demonstrations at the Is-
raeli Consulate in Manhat-
tan to protest the arrests of
Hasidim in clashes in
Jerusalem and what the
spokesperson called a
"brutal" tear gas attack by
police on worshippers in a
Satmar synagogue on
March 7 in Jerusalem.
The Satmar spokesman
said that Burg had asked
Teitelbaum to receive him
to discuss the indicents aris-
ing from the violent reac-
tions by Hasidic Jews when
cars appeared on the Ramot
Road which passes through
the Mea Shearim section of
Jerusalem. The road carries
traffic to a Jerusalem sub-
urb.
The spokesman said
that among those present
at the Burg-Teitelbaum
meeting were Rabbi
Hertz Franke, a repre-
sentative _ of the
Williamsburg Orthodox
community, and Berl
Friedman, a member of
the Council of Jewish
Organizations of Boro
Park, another section of
Brooklyn.
The spokesman said that
the issue of "police brutal-
ity" in Jerusalem was dis-
cussed in detail at the hour-
long meeting and that Burg
made a verbal commitment
to the Satmar Rebbe that on
his return to Jerusalem, he
would "intervene person-
ally" to resolve the issue of
Sabbath traffic on the
Ramot Road.
The spokesperson said
one of the solutions pro-
posed at the Burg-
Teitelbaum meeting was
construction of a second
road which would bypass
the Mea Shearim section.

ACLU to Sue.
School District
Over Bibles

The American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU)
plans to sue the Holly, Mich.
School District for allowing
the distribution of Bibles to
its students.
The suit would be an at-
tempt to establish a federal
court precedent on the sep-
aration of church and state
that would apply to all
Michigan school districts,
according to Howard Simon,
executive director of the
ACLU's Michigan chapter.
The case stems from the
Holly Board of Education's
refusal to change its policy
of 10 years and continue its
annual distribution of Gi-
deon Bibles to fifth graders
and graduating seniors.

Egypt has publicly stated

Between You
. . . and Me'

Editor-in-Chief

CHANGING SENTIMENTS: Take an average Jew
in the United States — one who is deeply interested in
helping Israel in various ways = and ask him: "Who is the
President of Israel?" He will hardly be able to give you the
answer.
President Yitzhak Navon is most popular in Israel. A
man of 60, he distinguished himself in the Hagana prior to
the establishment of Israel. Later he played an important
role in Israel's Foreign Ministry and served as head of
Premier Ben-Gurion's office. He was also elected to the
Knesset and was deputy speaker of Israel's Knesset and
chairman of its Committee for Foreign Affairs and Secu-
rity. He comes from a family that settled in Jerusalem 200
years ago.
Yet his name is not sufficiently known to American
Jewry. The same is true about other Israeli leaders of today.
today.
Israeli representatives continue to come to the United
States to address meetings and dinners, but they don't draw
large audiences. They are no longer a novelty to the aver-
age American Jew. In fact, the United Jewish Appeal re-
ceives now from local Jewish communities more and more
requests to send them American speakers for their fund-
raising campaigns rather than Israeli speakers. They ex-
plain the request with the fact that from American speak-
ers the public learns not only of developments in Israel but
also of developments in Jewish life in the United States.
THE EMERGING PICTURE: The interest of Jews
in this country to provide financial aid for Israel's
humanitarian needs is now as strong as ever. The same is
true with regard to standing on guard for Israel's interests
in Washington and in combatting Arab influence in the
United States.
More and more a picture emerges showing that the
large majority of American Jews are interested in helping
Israel as a state and not the various political parties which
compete for power in the state. In fact, many do not know
the difference between some of the political groups in Is-
rael. They are wondering why such a small country like
Israel must have a dozen or more political parties.
Most American Jews interested in helping Israel are
not exactly happy,over the fact that the religious groups in
Israel are dominating government policies on important
issues. Such influence in state affairs by religious groups
would in this country be fought by many Americans Jews
as a violation of the Constitution which separates state and
religion.
Many Jews in this country find it hard to understand
why Israel, which needs immigrants and a larger Jewish
population in general, is lenient thward curbing the emig-
ration of "yordim" from Israel, about 400,000 of whom are
now in the United States, with many among them Israeli-
born ("sabras") and members of kibutzim who had always
been the symbol of idealism. They interpret it to mean that
the Israelis are becoming more materialistic than idealis-
tic. They look with disfavor on "yordim" in this country.
They consider them as elements to whom the interest in the
dollar is above the interest in Israel.
CJF ATTITUDE: The Council of Jewish Federationi
observes the sentiments now growing within the American
Jewish community with regard to the internal communal
life in Israel, and is worried. The CJF leadership wants to
see a stronger ,bridge between the American Jewish com-
munity and Israel.
Voices are, therefore, heard in the federations of the
necessity to arrange periodic "dialogues" between Israeli
leaders and the Council of Jewish Federations to discuss
the respective roles and relationship, and to establish ties
beyond philanthropic ones.
The federations also want the CJF to have a say in the
selection by Israel of shlikhim to the United States. They
-,claim that many unqualified "political" appointees sent to
the United States often times have been deleterious to
relationships and to "bridges." They underscore the need
for care in the selection and the willingness of the CJF to be
helpful in working with Israel in the selection process.
The need to establish a CJF presence in Israel to bring
to the Israelis more understanding about American Jewry
not only as money givers is also on the minds of federation
leaders. They are interested in evoking more attention in
Israel to American Jewish communal life about which Is-
raelis display practically no interest at all.
In general, the federations feel deep concern about the
great tensions in Israeli society created by extraordinary
economic and defense burdens that have led to emigration
of many from Israel. they recognize the responsibility of the
American Jewish community for aid which can improve the
quality of life in Israel, and that the Jewish community
must give priority to effecting positive attitudes and sup-
port to Israel
