Shultz in the direction of
Arafat — it will not be the
first time that a president liv-
ed to regret his most clever
maneuvers!'
The "most onerous burden"
of the American decision,
predicted the magazine, may
be that, to Palestinians, the
U.S. has now "formally and
explicitly assumed the func-
tion of deus ex machina."
"Washington may demur,
insisting this is not. the
case . . . But these protests
will fall on deaf ears in the
Middle East. They will seem
only coy — especially in view
of the significance Arafat
plainly ascribes to what the
United States refers to only
as a dialogue. He has told his
people that the new diplo-
matic contact is tantamount
to the endorsement of a
Palestinian state."

Orthodox Debate
Public Menorahs

Should Jews fight for the
legal right to place menorahs
on public display during the
Chanukah season?
The question was the focus
of a debate in the letters col-
umn of the November issue of
The Jewish Observer, the
Agudath Israel magazine. It
makes for fascinating reading
because it touches on
whether American Jews
should seek a low profile in
the general community, as ad-
vocated by Agudath Israel, or
a higher profile, as. urged by
the Lubavitch Chasidic move-
ment, which presents public
menorah displays in every
state.
Gershon Steinberg of
Chicago wrote to take excep-
tion to an article in a previous
issue of the magazine that
suggested that public
menorah displays "arouse the
hatred and derision of the
gentile world?' The article
also argued that public
menorahs should be discour-
aged since they satisfy no par-
ticular mitzvah.
Steinberg, an advocate of
the Lubavitch position,
asserted that Jews have a
duty to display the menorah
as a way to fulfill the mitzvah
of proclaiming God's name to
the world.
Rabbi Chaim Dov Keller,
Rosh Yeshiva of the Telshe
yeshiva in Chicago, and
author of the original article,
responded that there is no
halachic requirement for
displaying a menorah on
public property.
