Israel's Right To Exist Is Recognized (Compiled from various wire reports) The electrifying turn in the 30-year-old Middle East con¬ flict precipitated by Egyp¬ tian -. President Anwar Sadat's visit to Jerusalem .and his address to the Knes¬ set has now become history, but the long range outcome of that unprecedented action remains to be seen. Sadat arrived in IsraeLon Saturday night (Israeli time), Nov. 19; addressed the Kiiesset, prayed at Al Aksa Mosque in the Old City of Jerusalem and visited Yad Vasehm on Sunday, Nov. 20 and returned, home to Cairo on Monday, Nov. 21. .His history making visit also included private talks with Prime' Minister Menachem Begin. Each leader, in ** Special Analysis speeches before the Knesset, expressed their country's basic positions. In recogniz- , ing Israel's permanance, sovereignity and right' to .- exist, Sadat noted, that "we welcome you to live among us in permanent peace with justice." Although the under¬ standing of what constitutes justice and what can make peace permanent was not re- . solved, there is no doubt that the two sides have been drawn closer together as a (CONTINUEDON PAGE3) By Joseph Polakoff WASHINGTON, (JTA) - Egyptian President Anwar Sadat's visit to Jerusalem was seen here in official circles as a political and psychological spectacular of immense global significance which also carried enormous risks as well as the highest promise for finally resolving at least part of the Arab- Israeli conflict. The risks were seen in the possibility that Sadat might Proposed Regulations To Implement New Anti-Boycott Law Are Criticized NEW YORK, Nov.'16 ... Three major Jewish organi¬ zations today sharply criti¬ cized .proposed regulations issued by the U.S. Com¬ merce Department to imple¬ ment the hew federal anti- boycott law as "contrary to the legislation,*' adding that its proposals would "subvert the thrust and purpose of the anti-boycottstatute." The American Jewish Committee, the American Jewish Congress and the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith outlined three new significant sections of the propositi' regulations, which?'tj^Ychs^e4,;'%Puld-. "distort legislativf!- intent and action and undermine the objectives embodied in the* neWi«tatutev-.4: These areas are: the "unilateral selection," "local law," and "rish of loss" sections of the proposed regulations. In the legislation, the agencies declared, Congress enacted exceptions for specjfic, limited situations. However; they • continued, .the Commerce Department regulations interpret these exceptions so broadly as to vitiate the entire thrust-of the law. For example, in the unilateral selection section, the agencies declared, "Con¬ gress intended to place the' burden on the foreign buyer making a boycott-based selection to do so without assistance from any U.S. person/The proposed regu¬ lations, however, ignore both statutory language ■and; legislative history by" per¬ mitting a US-person to pro- • vide a foreign buyer with in-? valuable assistance — in the form of management, pro- ■ curement and other pre- award services — before the foreign buyer makes his boy¬ cott-tainted selection." The three Jewish agen¬ cies, which acted on behalf of the six national and 101 local constituent agencies of -the National Jewish Com¬ munity Relations Advisory Council, called on President Carter to honor his commit¬ ment to effective anti-boy¬ cott legislation by "signifi¬ cant strengthening" of the proposed regulations. CHS Music Fund Established ■ Sunnie Ghitman, well- known music performer and teacher in the community, has established The Sunnie Ghitman Music Fund at the Columbus Hebrew School (CHS), announced Joshua Chorowsky, school director. Mrs. Ghitman said, "The objective of the fund is to further the instruction of Hebrew and Jewish music at the Hebrew music and-, melodies are expressive means in family gatherings, where parents and children alike enjoy learning and singing Israeli and holiday songs together." - Chorowsky added that, in the setting of the Jewish .school, songs are particular¬ ly effective means for creat- ■ ing atmosphere, interest and enrichment. .Beyond that, - Hebrew melodies are excel¬ lent media for teaching the Hebrew language and skills and Israeli culture. ? . The establishment of The Sunnie Ghitman Music Sunnie Ghitman Fund, said Chorowsky, com¬ plements and supports the successful efforts of the CHS to enrich its educational pro¬ gram on an ongoing basis. "The school and students are grateful to Mrs. Ghitman for her vision and generosity," he concluded.

The unprecedented visit, no mat¬ ter what Sadatpublicly said, establishes Egypt's de facto recognition of Israel, its par¬ liament and Jerusalem as its capital. Along with the assessment are quick doubtsthat Cairo- Jerusalem exchanges so swiftly executed into reality can not involve Washington or possibly Rumania Before Sadat dramatically told American Congressmen visiting him that he would go to Jerusalem if necessary for peace. Officially and publicly, President Carter and his spokesmen at the White House andState Department indicated U.S. surprise at the Sadat visit and insisted his trip was just a step to¬ wards a Geneva conference of all the parties and that the conference may still be held in December. The U.S. believes, State Department spokesman Hodding Carter said again on Nov,.18 that the Sadat trip "is a positive contribution to the continuing efforts for a Geneva conference for a comprehensive settlement of the Middle East conflict." In addition, he repeated that the U.S. is just a "go- between, a conduit" between Cairo and Jerusalem. President Carter himself said on Nov. 16 that he had (CONTINUEDON PAGE7) N.Y. Senators Warn U.S. May Cancel Sale Of Grain If Shcharansky Tried NEW YORK, (JTA) - New York's two senators, Daniel P. MoyniHan, Demo¬ crat and Jacob K. Javits, Re¬ publican, said on Nov. 17 that the U.S. would cancel its grain sale to the Soviet Union if Jewish activist Anatoly . Shcharansky is brought to trial on charges of treason and allegations that he was a CIA agent which President Carter has flatly denied. The senators issued "their warning at a press con¬ ference here marking the formation of a New York Committee to Free Anatoly ■ Shcharansky by the Greater New York Conference on Soviet Jewry (GNYCSJ). Shcharansky has ■ been held incommunicado in Mos¬ cow's Lefortovo prison since his arrest last March 15. Moynihan .charged that his arrest and possible trial for treason was "an act of ag¬ gression" against the U.S. .."They (the Soviets) can feed themselves next winter if they lay a hand on Anatoly Shcharansky," Moynihan warned. Asked if he meant that the Carter Administra¬ tion would rescind its grain sales deal, the Senator re- (CONTINUED ON PAGE 3) Hanukah Service To Be First For New Reform Congregation A new temple of reform' Judajsm, Beth Shalom, has been1 founded in Columbus and will hold its first reli¬ gious service Dec. 4 at 8 p.m., the eve of Hanukah.
