FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1988

T

he Talmud tells an in-
structive story about
Amram, the father of
Moses. After Pharaoh issued
his infamous decree, "Every
boy that is born you shall
throw into the Nile," Amram
fell into deep despair. "All our
efforts are for naught," he
said.
Amram separated himself
from his wife and dis-
associated himself from his
family. He did not wish to add
further pain by bringing more
children into the world. Since
he was among the most pro-
minent of the people, others
followed his example. .
His daughter, Miriam,
reproved him and said, "Your
act is more difficult and
dangerous for the children of
Israel than Pharaoh's brutal
command. Pharaoh's decree
was for boys alone. You doom

boys and girls. We may sur-
vive his decree. We cannot
survive yours. Since Pharaoh
is a wicked man, there are
_ grave doubts as to whether
his decree will be fulfilled.
But you are a righteous man,

Shabbat Shemot:
Exodus 1:1-6:1
Isaiah 27:6-28:13,
29:22-23

and your decree will be fulfill-
ed."
Amram repented of his ill-
advised policy and joined his
wife. Once again, others
followed his example and re-
joined their wives.
Out of that reunion came
the child, Moses, who was
destined to be the liberator
and law-giver of his people.
The sages were not mere
academicians spinning
theories in remote detach-
ment. They dwelled in the
midst of their brethren and
knew the crisis and anguish
of the Jewish people. They

sought to impart courage and
dignity to their people who
were engaged in a grim strug-
gle for survival.
As we think about Israel in
1989, we mark a high level of
concern. Palestine Liberation
Organization Chief Yassir
Arafat won an unprecedented
propoganda victory. He
received the endorsement not
only of Third World, which
has always supported him,
but also of the European
democracies that have tended
to be less favorable to his
leadership and the recogni-
tion of the Reagan ad-
ministration, recently ex-
pressed by Secretary of State
George Schultz.
Substantive dialogue with
PLO representatives and the
American envoy in Tunisia
have taken place. The PLO
has become both more con-
ciliatory by renouncing ter-
rorism and recognizing Israel
and, at the same time, more
bold and aggressive by declar-
ing a Palestinian state. Israel
has formed a new government
including both major political
