her existence, Abba Eban and
others have argued that
Israel is not threatened exter-
nally and that all who truly
care about Israel would help
her best by expressing their
criticisms.
Hertzberg asserts that in
taking no stand, Wiesel is in
effect taking a stand —
supporting Likud. "As you
know better than anyone
else," he writes, "silence is a
form of interference . . . You
have spoken out aginst indif-
ference and injustice. Why are
you making a special excep-
tion of Israel? Do you think
that our silence will help
Israel?"

New York — The Union of
American Hebrew Congrega-
tions (UAHC) this week for-
mally launched a small con-
gregations department to pro-
vide guidance, instruction
and spiritual support to
Reform Jews in small and
isolated communities
throughout North America.
Dr. Norman Kahan, rabbi
emeritus of Temple Sinai in
Roslyn Heights, N.Y., and
former president of the New
York board of rabbis, has been
named national director of
the new department.
Among the projects of the
small congregation depart-
ment will be to assist small
congregations in obtaining
professional support, arrang-
ing for cantors to conduct ser-
vices, scheduling periodic ad-
dresses by national and
regional speakers, arranging
for two or more congregations
to share the service of one
rabbi and organizing teacher
workshops, youth gatherings,
adult weekends and lectures.

nothing choices" and ignored
the "measured criticism that
comes from the moderate half
of Israel." Summarizing
Wiesel's recent statements
and writings, Hertzberg notes
that Wiesel has been deplor-
ing the present situation in
Israel, criticizing extremists
on all sides and asserting that
Jews outside of Israel should
not criticize Jerusalem.
"When it comes to policy, you
have said little that Yitzhak
Shamir could not counter-
sign," writes Hertzberg. He
adds that while Wiesel im-
plicitly justifies using ex-
cessive Israeli force at times
because of the Arab threat to

FINE JEw"u"'

Criticizing Wiesel

Los Angeles (JTA) — Racist
memos written by two
publicity men to advise a pro-
bable Jewish contender for
mayor have threatened to
shake up one of the strongest
black-Jewish alliances in an
American city.
The memos call for a
Jewish-financed campaign to
replace incumbent Mayor
Tom Bradley, who is black,
with City Councilman Zev
Yaroslaysky, who is Jewish.
The memos, dated March
29 and May 4, were prepared
by an aggressive duo of
political campaign profes-

sionals, Michael Berman and
Carl D'Agostino, who work
under the self-chosen
acronym "BAD." The memos
were anonymously leaked to
the Los Angeles Times and
have come to be called the
"BAD memors."
Yaroslaysky immediately
distanced himself from BAD,
calling the memos "largely
unsolicited" and "frankly of-
fensive." Following the surfac-
ing of the memos, Yaroslaysky
called Bradley to emphasize
his "high personal regard" for
the mayor. Bradley responded
in kind, saying, "It is my hope
that there will be no return to
ethnic and racial campaigns."
The memos appear to have
been stolen from either the
BAD office or from a Yaroslav-
sky aide, and then transmit-
ted to the Los Angeles Times,
which published them. Both
sides say they have no idea
who is responsible for the
deed.

JNF Launches
'Tree For 'free'

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
Jewish National Fund hopes
to replace every one of the
million trees destroyed this
summer by fires.
The fires consumed acres
and acres throughout Israel.
In June and July alone, 1,100
fires were reported — many of
them deliberate — a figure
four to five times the average
number of forest fires for this
time of year.
Those were terrible months,
according to JNF World
Chairman Moshe Rivlin. He
announced that JNF hopes to
replace every tree and to buy
new fire prevention equip-
ment as part of its campaign,
caled "A Tree For A Tree."
Some of the fires occurred
because of carelessness, and
spread quickly through thick
undergrowth.
