Kibutzim Debate Sleeping, Eating Arrangements


TEL AVIV — In several
kibutzim in Israel, includ-
ing the' extreme socialist
kibutzim of Hashomer
Hatzair, there is a discus-
sion going on over whether
to establish "kosher cor-

ners" in the dining rooms.
The matter came up when
some boys and girls of the
kibutzim married non-
Jewish volunteers from
abroad who came to the
kibutzim to work. Those
converting to Judaism often
want to eat kosher food.
The grandson of the
Mapam leader Jacob Hazan
fell in love with a volunteer
from Peru who came to work
in his kibutz, Mishmar
Marieta, whose Chris-
tian parehts live in Lima,
could not be dissuaded
by her parents from
going to Israel. After fal-

to Mishmar Haemek she
demanded to have kosher
food. A "kosher corner" in
the dining room was dis-
cussed. Some kibutz mem-
bers protested the introduc-
tion of religious customs.
But the majority advocated
such a step.
It has been the custom on
the kibutzim to have small
children sleep in a common
children's home and not in
the apartments of their par-
ents. But recently, when the
standard of living has risen
on the kibutzim, this situa-
tion changed. The children
sleep in the apartments of
their parents, which include
two rooms, a kitchen, mod-
em electric appliances and
a TV set.
In some kibutzim of the
Ichud (former Mapai) and
the Kibutz Hameuchad
(Ahdut Haavoda), the
change in the children's
sleeping arrangements was
passed without general as-

President Reagan's recent
assertion that belief in God
should make Americans sol-
idly back his opposition to a
nuclear freeze and support
his program for a massive
military buildup came
under stinging denuncia-
tion from leaders of the
three branches of Judaism.
Those criticizing the
President included Rabbi
Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congre-
gations (Reform); Rabbi

PARIS (JTA) — Foreign
Minister Claude Cheysson
told a Jewish delegation
last Thursday that he was
"adamantly opposed" to
holding a United Nations-
sponsored conference on
Palestine in Paris but there
was little he could do to pre-
vent it. -
Cheysson, according to
Jean Kahn who led a dele-
gation of the Strassbourg
Jewish community, said
France was not consulted
when the General Assembly
decided last summer to hold
the meeting at UNESCO in
Paris. He said the French
UN delegate abstained
when the vote was held.
The UN conference on
Palestine will open Aug. 16
and last 11 'days. PLO
chairman Yasir Arafat is
expected to attend. Kahn
said Cheysson agreed that
the conference could spark a
new wave of anti-Semitism
and said the French gov-
ernment would do all it can
to have the meeting can-
celed or, at least, trans-
ferred to another city.

Night brings out the stars
as sorrow shows us truths.




The expert on educational
problems for the Kibutz Ein
Hamifratz Israel Ring
maintains that the sleeping
arrangements were not a
principle of the Hashomer
Hatzair movement, but a
private matter of the par-
ents. The debate continues.

came a major issue with
the kibutz management
of Hashomer Hatzair. In
these kibutzim —
Merhavia and Snir — the
members decided by
majority vote to allow the
children to sleep in their
parents' apartments. The
management of Hakib-
butz Haartzi decided to
lower the rating of the
kibutzim as punishment
and to forfeit their right
to be members of the Cen-
tral Organization of the
Kibutzim of Hashomer
Hatzair, and not allowed
to take part in meetings
of the Education De-
partment of Hashomer
Hatzair or to enlarge
their memberships.
Meir Yaari, founder of
Merhavia, voted against the
decision to let the children
sleep with their parents, but
he strongly protested the
sanctions. He threatened to
boycott the 70-year-jubilee
of Hashomer Hatzair if the
sanctions were not resci-

We sit, 'round the Seder table each year, and celebrate The
Exodus through traditions passed down to us over thousands
of years. These traditions have become so much a part of our
heritage they are inscribed in the Haggadah for all the world
to see: the matzoh, the "MaNishtanah:' the Aphikoman, the
recitation of the plagues, the chant of "Dayenu:' and on and
on through the night, closing with "Chad Gadyal'
At each Seder, however, there are other kinds of traditions
... traditions which are just as strong, just as cherished. They
are our personal family traditions. Unwritten and unsung,
they are as much a part of our Seders as the hard-boiled eggs
and bitter herbs. And among these, one of the most popular
traditions is the wine that is used throughout the Seder eve-
ning. That is Manischewitz, of course. In millions of homes, it
just wouldn't be Passover without a bottle of Manischewitz
Kosher Wine. It is a wine that spans the generations and,
somehow, symbolizes the continuity of the family Seder.
Faces may change, we grow
older, sometimes there is a new
youngster to ask the "I'vlaNish-
tanah"... but always there is the
