Generation's Dream

right now The Wailing Wall is
a minute away?'
Bang, a tire blew and the jeep
veered so sharply that only
with all my strength could I
stop it before it tumbled off the
road. We crowded into the se-
cond jeep, leaving Yoel Herzl
with the radio, • cutting
ourselves off from contact and
the possibility of finding out
what was going on.
We drove up the narrow road
toward the Lion's Gate. On the
square in front of it an Arab bus
was steadily burning. Electric
cables were down. Legion-
naires' bodies. lay all around. A
section of the gate had been
torn from its hinges; the second
section was flung open and the
arch above the Gate had been
hit, so that its loose masonry
threatened the heads of
passers-by. But the carved lions
were undamaged.
We drove through, along the
road to the Gate of the Tribes
and the Thmple Mount, and
down the Via Dolorosa to the
second arch. It was blocked by
the lead tank of the paratroops.
We climbed over it and con-
tinued on foot.
Yoel, behind us, picked off a
sniper shooting at us from one
of the houses. Except for that,
the Via Dolorosa was cool and

silent, the windows shuttered,
the streets empty. Had our men
been through here, I wondered?
Beyond the second arch lay
King Feisal Street. We stepped
through, and the breath caught
in our throats.
We beheld the huge paved
courtyard, crowned, against the
blue sky of June 7, 1967 (28
Iyar 5727), by the golden cupola
of the Dome of the Rock, gleam-
ing, glistening, taking its gold
from the sun.

We ran towards Motta Gur,
standing on the Mount, where
the flag of Israel flew. We were
joined first by Moshe Stempel,
Motta's deputy and then by
Rabbi Goren. We embraced and
the rabbi prostrated himself
and genuflected towards the
Holy of Holies. •

In a resonant voice he recited
the ancient Prayer to Battle
(Deuteronomy 20:34):
"Hear, 0 Israel, ye approach
this day onto battle against
your enemies; let not your
hearts faint, fear not, and do
not tremble, neither be ye ter-
rified because of them; for the
Lord your God is he that goeth
with you, to fight for you
against your enemies, to save
you!"

THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

New York (JTA) -- Close to
a million ballots were mailed
within the last week to mem-
bers of American Zionist
organizations to elect dele-
gates to the 31st World
Zionist Congress which will
open in Jerusalem on Decem-
ber 7, it was announced here
by the American Zionist
Federation (AZF) the um-
brella group for all the Zionist
membership organization in
the United States. Eligible
voters will choose from nine
slates representing a broad
spectrum of views on issues
of concern to the Jewish
people.
Benjamin Cohen, AZF
president, and Raymond Patt,
Area Election Committee
chairperson, said recipients of
the ballots have until June 30
to return them. While the
AZF is the coordinating body
for the election, voters have
been instructed to mail their
ballots directly to the
American Arbitration Asso-
ciation (AAA) which is
overseeing the election.
According to the two of
ficials, if a person is a member
of more than one Zionist
organization, that person,
may receive more than one
ballot. But, Cohen and Patt
emphasized, "You may vote
only once. If you return more

than one ballot, your vote will
not be counted?'
Patt called the balloting "a
remarkable democratic exer-
cise which allows members in
the U.S. Zionist organizations
to select their representatives
to the World Zionist Con-
gress." He predicted that the
response would exceed the
more than 200,000 ballots
cast in 1978.
