Mexico Jewish Community Remains
Strong Despite Economic Adversity

By MILTON JACOBY
MEXICO CITY (JTA) —
Mexican Jewry, merely
50,000 strong, is still a
cohesive and dynamic force,
despite the turmoil caused
by the nation's critical eco-
nomic and financial prob-
lems brOught on by the sud-
den and severe slump in
world oil prices.
Almost 49,000 Jews re-
side in Mexico City, with its
current population of more
than 15 million. The re-
maining 1,000 reside in
Guadalajara, Monterrey
and Tiajuana. Despite the
crisis besetting the country,
the Mexico City Jewish
community manages to
maintain most cordial and
positive ties with govern-
ment officials from the
President down, the power-
ful labor confederations,
and non-Jewish Mexicans
in general.
The pride and joy of the
community is its Jewish
•Sports Center, which has no
less than 23,000 members
and contains every facility
imaginable. A logistical
problem faced every. Sunday
is getting to the center: one
has to rise bright and early
for a day's fun and frolic
without having to park
some miles away.
Bernardo Weitzner,
president of the Central
Committee of Mexican
Jewry, a body that acts as
liaison with the govern-
ment and with interna-
tional Jewish organiza-
tions, revealed that lead-
ers of the Jewish com-
munity have met twice
with the new President,
Miguel de la Madrid, who
impressed them as being
"most realistic and defi-
nitely able to take the
proper steps to cope with
the problems he has inh-
erited from his predeces-
sor, Lopez Portillo."
"We are optimistic that,
under his leadership, we
will recover from the pre-
sent economic slump, and
we will be able to do even
more for Israel in the fu-
ture," Weitzner said.
With the devaluation of
the peso from 24 to- the dol-
lar, roughly a year ago, to
its current 150 pesos to the
dollar, many JewiSh
enterprises have come to a
grinding halt, Weitzner
said. The ability of Jews to
travel abroad, and espe-
cially to Israel, has suffered
accordingly.
Weizner noted that
Mexico sells oil to Israel,
has a sizeable export and
import program with the
Holy Land, and promotes
considerable cultural inter-
changes on a professional
level. He expects the cur-
rent president to maintain a
friendly attitude toward the
government of Israel de-
spite any pressures that
may emanate from Arab
countries.
The Palestine Libera-
tion Organization opened
an office in Mexico City in
1979, but despite the
propaganda it churns out
regularly, the vast major-
ity of Mexicans are unaf-
fected and unimpressed,

Eban Quoted

according to Weitzner.
Mexico City Jews are
proud of their own school
system, which has very di-
rect links with Israel. There
is a Jerusalem Program for
students finishing junior
high school, in which they
visit Israel for four to six
weeks. Upon their comple-
tion of high school, a great
number go to Israel for six to
nine months to work on a
kibutz. After such an ex-
perience, many elect to stay
and to become citizens of
their ancestral land.
Apparently, there is no
significant degree of anti-
Semitism in the city. There
was a brief flare-up after the
fighting in Lebanon, with
the local PLO office playing
a role,

.

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
Member of Knesset and
former Foreign Minister
Abba Eban has become the
first Israeli to be quoted in
the British "Dictionary Of
Contemporary Quotations."
The volume includes
Eban's definition of prop-
aganda, "the art of convinc-
ing others of what one does
not necessarily believe one-
self," and his comment,
"Men and nations some-
times behave wisely once
they have exhausted all the
other alternatives."
