NEW YORK (JTA) —

the fourth day of a 10-day
visit to the U.S., said that as
a result of the massive arms
supply to Syria in the last
year, "The Syrian army be-
came one of the largest ar-
mies of the world," with
some 4,000 tanks at its dis-
posal.
Herzog also said that
there is in Syria "the only
Soviet fighting unit outside
the Soviet bloc" and the Sy-
rians are equipped with the
sophisticated Soviet made
SAM-5 missiles.
Regarding the
downfall of Yasir Arafat,
leader of the Palestine
Liberation Organization,
Herzog said he was asked
by some people if he is not

said to see this "moder-
ate" leader disappear.
"No. I am not sorry to see
Arafat go," the President
said, noting that Arafat
was a "murderer" who
sought the destruction of
Israel. He added that it is
hoped that the Palesti-
nian people will "wake
up" to the new realities in
the Mideast and will open
a dialogue with Israel.
Herzog was also guest of
honor at a reception given
by Naphtalii Lavie, Israel's
Consul General in New
York. The reception, at
Lavie's residence, was at-
tended by diplomats,
Jewish leaders and rep-
resentatives of the media.

American Jewish Thought
Analyzed in Eisen Volume

In "The Chosen People in
America: A Study in Jewish
Religious Ideology" (In-
diana University Press),
Arnold M. Eisen analyzes
the attempts of American
Jewish thinkers to adapt
the notion of chosenness to
an American context.
The 237-page volume of-
fers an in-depth look at the
oppor,tunities and threats
the American "melting pot"
presented to Jewish immig-
rants at the turn of the cen-
tury. Although the U.S, ac-
cording to the author, of-
fered Jews an unpre-
cedented degree of partici-
pation in the larger society,
the accompanying assimila-
tion tended to erode Jewish
identity and the sense of

separateness that was
sometimes necessary for
survival.
Eisen also traces the rein-
terpretations of second-
generation American Jewry
(1930-1955) through an ex-
amination of the period's
essays, sermons, debates,
prayer book revisions and-
full-length works. The sec-
ond half of the study
examines the conceptions of
chosenness and the Jews'
place in America as further
revised by the writers and
spokesmen of the third gen-
eration.
The author is an assistant
professor of religion at Col-
umbia University. "The
Chosen People in America"
is his first book.

Blok" (WSU Press), a biog-
raphy by the late Konstan-
tin Mochulsky.
For many of his contem-
poraries, Blok was a cult fi-
gure, reflecting the hopes
and aspirations and, at the
same time, the pessimism of
the Russian intelligentsia
during the two decades be-
fore World War I. Later, his
acceptance of the Russian
Revolution alienated many
friends who did not share
his new views.
Mr. Mochulsky was a
member of the emigre
group of Russian intel-
lectuals in Paris who
were devoted to literary,
religious and philosophic
pursuits. He has previ-
ously written studies on
Dostoevsky and Bely.
The volume was trans-
lated by Doris V. Johnson,
who teaches in the depart-
ment of Slavic and Eastern
languages and literatures
at Wayne State University.
