Council Distributes Booklet
on Christmas in the Schools

religious school students

Community Council's pam-

school systems.
Parents are asked in "De-
cember Dilemma" how they
would handle specific situa-
tions such as their children
being asked to sing Christ-
mas carols, or to bring in a
Hanuka menorah for "Show
and Tell." These questions
and others are addressed in
the pamphlet. The pam-

Price of Jewish Education

By PHYLLIS DOMSTEIN
(Editor's note: Mrs. Domstein is a teacher at United He-
brew Schools.)
A good teacher is reliable, dependable and true
dedicated to excellence, a knowledgeable Jew.

He must keep up to date and posted on ideas that are new
and educationally channel them for every single Jew.

He must meet individual differences, for no-one's quite alike;
use stickers, stars and charts with points for each and every tyke.

A good teacher is a model to those placed in his charge;
he must be an example, do as he says, for his students at large.

A good teacher must commit effort, energy and time
- to become capable and experienced as he approaches his prime.

And when he is a veteran and polished as a jewel
a younger one will be-h.ired in to replace him in the school.

A student who is learning to be a teacher, too
with salary and fringes both diminished, as a rule.

For experience counts for little, if the system has to pay
and better save a buck or two — who cares, anyway?

All cry for better teachers who will care and who will lead
but no-one will support them, denying Torah, choosing greed.

And schools will cut corners, save a dollar, maybe more;
and a generation loses out — why shouldn't they be sore?

For you get just what you pay for, on that there is no doubt;
and track record and experience are what it's all about.

For our values are confused, priorities misplaced
when new are hired in to teach and tried and true replaced.

For money isn't everything, but education is.
And we must have experience to teach our precious kids.

Argentina to Fight Bias

BUENOS AIRES (JTA)

— Dr. Antonio Troccoli,

chosen by President-elect
Raul Alfonsin to be the
Minister of Interior in the
new constitutional govern-
ment of Argentina, de-
scribed anti-Semitism as "a
barbarian attitude" which
"ought to be definitely and
foreVer eliminated from the
country," the World Jewish
Congress reported.
Troccoli's comments were
contained in a lengthy
interview published by the
Jewish weekly, "Mundo Is-
raelita." As reported by the
Latin American branch of,
the WJC, he spoke of the de-
termination to protect the
freedom and rights of all
citizens, stressing, "We are
adversaries of discrimina-
tion of whatever origin —
political, racial, or_religious
— so that we will faithfully
respect the freedoms related
to persons, faiths and politi-
cal issues."
The Latin American
branch of the WJC reported
that the unexpected ava-

lanche of votes for the Radi-
cal Party headed by Alfon-
sin resulted in the election
to Parliament of four
Jewish deputies for the
lower chamber (out of a
total of 244) and of one sena-
tor (out of a total of 46).
Those figures may yet in-
crease with the final count
of votes.

In his latest assess-
ment, Prof. Manuel
Tenenbaum, executive
director of the Latin
American branch, said
that within the Jewish
community the climate of
relief and relaxation of
tension continues along
with optimism concern-
ing the new political era
emerging in the country.
But some ambivalence is
being observed.

The number of those in-
terested in aliya has drop-
ped sharply, and it is ex-
pected that younger Jews
will lose interest in commu-
nity issues and will, in-
stead, become active in the
general field.
