TEL AVIV (JTA) — The
cost of living index rose by
5.5 percent during De-
cember, the Central Bureau
of Statistics announced. The
increase brought the total
inflationary rate during
1982 to a near-record 131.5
percent — marginally
below the all-time high of
132.9 percent in 1980.
The 1981 rate was 101
-ercent — close to the two-
figure rate promised by Fi-
nance Minister Yoram
Aridor. Last year's figure
was considerably above the
99 percent he had hoped for,
despite great efforts to keep
prices down during the lat-
ter months of the year.

By THOMAS EYLES

Samson slew the Philistines
with the jawbone of an ass!
David slew Goliath .. .
God's word had come to pass!
What of modern conflict?
Veneer is wearing thin .
Respectable on the outside,
But Philistine within!

Set a good or bad example
and you are sure to find,
Other folk will follow, as sheep
or like the blind;
For life's a perfect balance,
and we are in the scales;
Swayed one way of the other .. .
True wisdom never fails!

Anti-Semitism
Down in Austria

VIENNA (JTA) — Anti-
Semitism has declined ap-
preciably in Austria, espe-
cially among young people,
but there has been a
"dramatic drop of sym-
pathy" for Israel according
to the results of a survey
published in the January
issue of the Journal Fuer
Sozialforschung (Journal
for Social Research).

first time seminary stu-
dents and faculty members
from major Catholic, Pro-
testant, Evangelical, Pen-
tecostal and Jewish
seminaries.
The Christian semina-
rians were all from the
Southwest, the most con-
servative region of Ameri-
ca and the most resistant
to change. The Jewish
seminarians were "bussed
in" by the American Jewish
committee from Conserva-
tive, Reform and Recon-
structionist seminaries (Or-
thodox seminarians were
invited but were unable to
attend.)
The interaction of the
Jewish seminarians with
Christian youth was liter-
ally phenomenal. Not one of
the Christian seminarians
— future leaders of Ameri-
ca's Christian populations
— had ever talked in any
meaningful way with a Jew.
By the end of the two-
day, intensive confer-
ence, young Christian
men and women rose to
"testify" that this was one
of the most important
religious experiences of
their lives. They were
now determined to "un-
learn" the negative
stereotypes they held
about Jews and Judaism,
and to pursue in their
theological education
studies that would help
them develop a positive
appreciation of Judaism,
its continued validity,
and the Jewish people.
The most dramatic high-
light of the unprecedented
seminarians' conference
was a keynote address by
Prof. Paul van Buren, Tem-
ple University, that broke
like a thunderclap revela-
tion on the conference.

Setting Examples



JERUSALEM (JTA) — A

and other violations of the
law in his election cam-
paign for the knesset in
1977.
