"We want them to support
us, not to boycott hotels;'
says the brother. "If they're
going to boycott the Hyatt
because it's on confiscated
land, they should also
boycott the Sheraton and
the Plaza!'
Jerusalem Hyatt officials
say the land on which the
hotel was built was never
owned by Arabs.
Israelis and Palestinians
are separated by two very
different realities. Israel
sees a large and hostile

Arab world, and demands
security. Palestinians see a
mighty Israel and a
fragmented Arab world that
cares nothing for the welfare
of the Palestinians, and de-
mand independence.
Even among the joking
and the goodwill at poolside,
these differing realities
refuse to give up their vigil.

"It is complicated,"
everyone says. It is confus-
ing. But may one snatch
hope from this confusion?
Now it is evening. As the

sun falls on Jerusalem, the
sky turns from brilliant
blue to dusty gray, and the
buildings spread over the
hills begin to shimmer like
the flicker of dying flames.
The blanket of twilight set-
tles on the city and
threatens to extinguish it.
With the illumination of
lights in homes and on the
streets the city is recreated.
Only the appearance of
the se lights saves
Jerusalem from disappear-
ing into the desert
darkness. ■

THE BRIGHT IDEA

AJC Conference Compares
Israeli And American Women

New York — Israeli women
have much better access to
good child care and health
care than do American wom-
en, while American women
have far greater access to top
jobs and public esteem — but
most women in both countries
have low paying jobs and are
their families' chief care-
takers no matter what their
jobs.
These were among the cen-
tral points made by the
speakers at a discussion on
"Israeli and American Wom-
en: Comparisons and Con-
trasts." The session was
part of the American Jewish
Committee's 82nd annual
meeting.
Principal speakers at the
session were British-born,
author-journalist Lesley
Hazleton, author of "Israeli
Women: The Reality Behind
the Myths" and attorney
Michele Lord, acting public-
policy director of the Older
Women's League.
Assessing the position of
women in Israel, Hazleton,
who lived there for more than
a dozen years, said that
Israeli women "are highly
respected as mothers and
potential mothers, but are not
respected in any other way.
They have no power, and no
equal rights, opportunities or
obligations."
Most Israeli women work
outside the home because of
economic necessity, said
Hazleton, but, she stressed,
the society believes that a
woman's chief concern should
be her home and family, and
women are not encouraged to
develop real careers or given
much opportunity to do so.
"There are no women in the
cabinet," she said, "no wom-
en mayors, no women in high
corporate positions, no wom-

en in any major positions of
power, influence, or respon-
sibility. There are many un-
derlying reasons for this, but
one pragmatic reason is that
the military is the main
training ground for high posi-
tions in industry and politics,
and women don't get this
training because they don't
get top posts in the military!' •
Key reasons for Israel's tradi-
tional view of women, she
said, are the strong influence
of the religious political par-
ties, and "a particularly
Israeli form of macho that is
very persistent and
widespread?'
As for feminism, she said,
"it is a dirty word in Israel,
and there is great anger
directed against even
moderate feminism, for the
feminists are seeking to ex-
pose the myth that there is
sexual equality in Israel!'
Nevertheless, she said,
"very slowly, very cautiously,
and with great fear and tre-
pidation, a very small but in-
creasing number of Israeli
women are beginning to rea-
lize that all is not what they
were taught it was — they are
not equal — and they are
working for change!"
The women's movement in
the United States, where she
now lives, "is vastly far ahead
of the extremely tiny women's
movement in Israel," said
Hazleton, but "Israeli women
are better off than Americans
in one significant way: Israel
provides excellent child care
facilities, and it is a wonder-
ful place to bring up
children!'
In describing the lives of
American women, Lord also
spoke of myths, saying that
"in refutation of the
American myth that good
people who work hard get to

the top is the fact that
American female college
graduates now earn roughly
the same as male high school
dropouts."
But American women have
made much progress in the
last decade, said Lord. "We
have a far greater con-
sciousness about being
women, we are entering pro-
fessions we've never entered
before and there are many
more women elected officials,
especially at the state and
local levels!' But, she caution-
ed, much of this progress has
been felt only by women in
the upper middle class.
While women "are still ex-
pected to be the primary
caretakers of society," she
said, "this work is not valued
by society, not given credibili-
ty, and not even counted in
the Gross National Product
even though it is critical for
the economy!'

Council Attacks
UJA Action

New York — A statement
condemning the United
Jewish Appeal and the Coun-
cil of Jewish Federations for
mounting a campaign regar-
ding the "Who Is A Jew" bill
in the Knesset was issued
recently by the Rabbinical
Council of America.
Rabbi Max N. Schreier,
president of the Rabbinical
Council of America, said,
"The UJA and Federation
should not become involved in
religious questions; nor
should it use public money to
mount a campaign concern-
ing the problem of religion in
Israel!"

What A Chiropractor Can
Do For "Jogger's Back"

BY DR. STANLEY LEVINE, D.C.
Doctor of Chiropractic

Americans are becoming increasingly aware of the need for physical
fitness. There are many roads to physical fitness, all with a worthwhile
goal. But a person who chooses jogging may find their fitness program
detoured by jogger's back.
An estimated sixty percent of the American people have one leg
that is shorter than the other. While some of them have one leg that
is actually anatomically shorter, the great majority suffer from a func-
tional short leg. In other words, both legs are actually equal or very
nearly equal in length. But for one reason or another, one leg has been
"pulled" shorter by a fixed imbalance within the structure of the body.
One might think that a person whose legs are
of unequal length would walk on a slant and their
side to side appearance would resemble the Lean-
ing Tower of Pisa. Some people do have one
shoulder that is noticeably higher than the other, _
but such telltale signs are not always present. Nature
has a way of compensating for imbalances by caus-
ing the spine and other parts of the body's
framework to shift position in order to redistribute
the body's weight more evenly.
Unfortunately; such corrections may create ad-
ditional problems which will not just "'go away"
with time.
DR. LEVINE
The Doctor of Chiropractic knows that for such problems to be
truly solved, the underlying cause must first be corrected. The struc-
tural integrity of the body's framework must be restored.
His examination, may determine if a short leg condition is
anatomical in origin or is functional. In either case, he may recommend
that the patient change his exercise program and wear a heel life in one
shoe. This is not a "hit or miss" proposition. The size of the lift will
be determined by his examination findings.
Additionally, Chiropractic adjustments will help to restore the spine
to its proper alignment, thus allowing the body's own healing powers
to correct health problems from within.
If your back aches after jogging, you owe it to yourself to learn
if Chiropractic is the answer to your problem.
