Wendy Roizen and her daughter Sara, left, re-
cently paid a Shalom Detroit call on the Semps, a new
Southfield family.

It was a sunny August
morning as Wendy Roizen
and her daughter Sara, 3,
approached the home of
Samuel and Gilah Semp.
Mrs. Roizen, chairman of
the Jewish Welfare Federa-
tion Women's Division
Shalom Detroit committee,
was paying a call on the new
Southfield family, recently
moved here from Flint.
The family moved here
when Semp accepted the
position of ritual director for
Cong. Beth Shalom in Oak
Park. Mrs. Semp will retain
her position as an elemen-
tary school teacher in
Grand Blanc, commuting
each day to her job.
On behalf of Shalom De-
troit, Mrs. Roizen presented
the Semp family with a
six-month complimentary
membership to the Jewish
Community Center and a
jug of maple syrup from
Camp Tamarack, both of
which are funded by the
Jewish Welfare Federation
through the Allied Jewish
She also gave them a
copy of The Guide to
Jewish Detroit, an infor-
mational booklet. In
addition, the Semps will
receive two complimen-
tary copies of The Jewish

synagogue tickets for the
High Holidays, Shalom De-
troit would have provided
those, too.
Because the Semps have

popularity of collections of
political cartoons may be
due in part, their value as
art aside, in that they pro-
vide a capsule history of the
period covered. This is
demonstrated in "The Im-
possible Takes a Little
Longer" (Bloch Publishers),
the second collection of car-
toons by Noah Bee, whose
weekly cartoons have been
distributed by the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency (JTA)
since 1959.
The cartoons provide a
historical, overview that
runs from the 1973 Yom
Kippur War through the
Lebanon campaign. The
historical perspective is
enhanced by commentary
by Yehuda Lev, a veteran
Bee's favorite targets are
the Arab use of their oil
power, the anti-Israel posi-
tion of the Soviet Union and
the constant use of the
United Nations to attack Is-
rael. Bee also constantly
targets U.S. evenhanded-
ness which he sees as favor-
ing the Arabs. A 1976 car-
toon shows Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat
leaving the State Depart-
ment with a suitcase label-
led "compliments" while
then Israeli Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin emerges from
another door carrying a

suitcase of "reprimands."
A 1980 Presidential cam-
paign cartoon called "The
Harmony Boys" shows
President Carter, Ronald
Reagan, John Anderson and
Sen. Edward Kennedy Sing-
ing "We all love Israel."
Some of the best car-
toons in the book were
drawn in 1982 during the
Peace for Galilee opera-
tion. A September car-
toon shows Premier
Menahem Begin in a box-
ing ring (after having
knocked out a figure
labeled "terrorism")
being punched by the
U.S. which, says,
"Thanks, Menahem!" In
another cartoon,
President Reagan and
other Western leaders
kneel before a wounded
Yasir Arafat on a pedes-
tal and beg, "Say 'Israel
Exists, ' We Beg of You!"
Bee, like many American
Jews and Israelis, was at
first suspicious of Sadat's
peace move and then moved
to admire the Egyptian, al-
though not uncritically.
When Sadat was assassi-
nated, Bee mourned Sadat

NEW YORK—The needs
of victims of violent crime
must take priority over the
rights of criminals, in the
view of a Queens rabbinical
leader and scholar.
Dr. David Novak's "Vio-
lence in Our Society: Some
Jewish Insights" contends
that crimes result when
"our possessions mean more
to us than our lives, and cer-
tainly the lives of others,"
when "our quest for indi-
vidual, familial or political
security takes priority over
the needs of others" and
when "we feel terror at the
absence of God in our lives."
Novak's paper inaugu-
rates "Jewish Perspec-
tives," a new series of publi-
cations of the American
Jewish Committee demon-
strating the applicability of
traditional Jewish thought
to current social issues.
