There was a time in history when
Man's right to independent worship
went unrecognized.
But,2145 years ago.an event
1-ourred that firmly established the
principle in the consciousness of Man.
In the year 167 B.C.E.the first

of Sinai more than a thousand years
before
The Jewish |>eopleled by the M;u -
ibees,fought to break the religious
tyranny of the Assyrian-Greek conquer-
ors of ancient Judea who threatened
the very survival of the Jewish way of
life.
The Maccabees and their followers
struggled not for personal gain.and
broader influence.but to preserve the
Jewish Faith.
Their ultimate victory was a tri-
umph of justice and human dignity.lt
brought to humanity's attention an
ideal that transcends life itself.
Chanukah is the Jewish Festival
that commemorates that victory.For
eight nights, commencing with the 26th
day of Kislev.a candle is lit in every

gives hope that the faith of the Jews
will one day serve to banish tyranny

It is a yearly recurring declara-
tion of mankind's independence.a mem-

right of human beings to live and wor-
ship in freedom.

There's Still Time
To Secure Pledges
As 1986 draws to a close, UJA/Federation
campaigns throughout the country, in-
cluding our own Greater Miami Jewish
Federation Combined Jewish Appeal cam-
paign, are in the midst of year-ena cash col-
lection efforts to secure payments on
pledges that support vital social welfare pro-
grams for Jews in need worldwide. The 1986
UJA goal for overseas needs is $400 million.
In Greater Miami, agencies of our Federa-
tion are also hardpressed to handle the
demands upon their services. Now is the
time to affirm our commitments to Federa-
tion so that our local agencies and national
UJA can get on with their humanitarian
efforts.
Last year, the United Jewish Ap-
peal/Federation campaign reached the
highest peacetime level in its history, $400.8
million which included $48 million for
Operation Moses, the special campaign for
Ethiopian Jews.
Tax Savings
This year, more is needed to continue our
humanitarian efforts locally, nationally and
overseas. But minimally, it is estimated that
it will be essential to reach a $400 million
goal in order at least to hold the line.
Larry J. Hochberg, UJA's national cash
chairman, suggests a means of achieving a
best December ever. According to
Hochberg, it is a good idea to bear in mind
maximising 1986 tax savings through cash
payments while tax rates are still high
through the end of the year. On Jan. 1, tax
rates will drop for most Americans. This
means that tax savings on UJA contribu-
tions may be greater this year than next.
Making our cash payments now to fulfill
our commitments can help us personally.
Even more, it can help our brothers and
sisters in need here in Miami, across the
nation and in Israel.
Debate Over Taba
The debate over Taba, the splinter of land
on the Red Sea between Israel and Egypt, is
now going to international arbitration, and
both sides have agreed to abide by the
result. This is about as civilized a stand bet-
ween the two countries as has been apparent
in a long time.
The problem continues to be President
Hosni Mubarak's problems. He would like to
feel more comfortable among his Arab state
brethren, but like it or not, he has inherited
the peace accord between his government
and Israel established in the Sadat-Begin
era.
And so, Mubarak's stance has been more
than a slightly shaky one ever since his in-
auguration into office following President
Sadat's assassination. In effect, his
diplomacy has been fashioned around a ques-
tion: how to pretend to be abiding by the ac-
cord at the same time that he cozied up to
such perennial pains as, say, Yasir Arafat?
All of this, mind you, while Mubarak tilted
strenuously against Egypt's increasingly
volatile Moslem Brotherhood, sat by
morosely before a growing spectre of Egyp-
tian economic chaos and elected to withdraw
his ambassador to Israel, a frank violation of
Jewish Floridiam
ruoi orMrr
the Camp David Accord, during Prime
Minister Begin's Operation Peace for Galilee
in Lebanon.
More recently, Mubarak has quietly -
very quietly moved to reinstitute high
level diplomatic relations with Israel at the
same time that he has watched with some
mounting excitement yet another Yasir
Arafat-PLO resurrection in Lebanon.
Shamir's 'Fault'
Will Mubarak now use Israel's role in the
U.S. sale of arms to Iran as one more excuse
to avoid his own problems by making a new
problem between himself and Israel? In join-
ing Jordan King Hussein's "bitter disap-
pointment" over the arms sale, Mubarak has
sent a signal that he may. In an interview in
the French newspaper he Monde last week,
he "explained" his latest refusal to visit
Israel this way: it is Prime Minister
Shamir's "attitude" that is at fault.
What gripes Mubarak is that Shamir said
at a recent news conference: "If Mubarak
does not want to visit Israel, let him stay
away." What irked Shamir was Mubarak's
private note to him in which he explained
that he would go to Israel but not to
Jerusalem because "we do not recognize it
as Israel's capital."
Mubarak's last word on the subject? The
future of any Israeli-Egyptian dialogue
depends on the flexibility oTshamir, adding:
a shocks oeasiotf
"I hope he will show himself as flexible as
(former Prime Minister) Shimon Peres has
been."
In October, when the Unity Government's
rotation tookplace, we said in these columns
that the difference between Shamir and
Peres would be more in style than in
substance. Indeed, style is precisely what
Mubarak complained about in the premier-
ship of Shamir. But then. President
Mubarak is no piece of silk himself.

Sues Hebrew U. bYiends on Fraud Charges
Friday. December 26, 1966
Volume 59
24 KJSLEV 5747
Number 52
By MARGIE OLSTES
Frances Steloff, the
99-year-old former owner of
a New York landmark, the
Gotham Book Mart, has fil-
ed suit against the
American Friends of the
Hebrew University charg-
ing that the organization
defrauded her out of her
midtown Manhattan
building after she offered
AFHU a million-dollar gift.
Since 1920. Steloff has owned,
managed and live* on the floor
above the Gotham Book Mart, a
literary jewel in the center of
Manhattan's diamond district on
West 47th Street. The Gotham
specializes in unusual books, ex-
perimental or controversial
literary works, poetry, theatre,
film and Eastern spirituality.
STELOFF IS credited with
boosting the careers of now legen- ,
dary authors when they were little
known or unaccepted, including
James Joyce. T.S. Eliot, William
Carlos Williams, Gertrude Stein
and Etra Pound. Steloff defied
the censors and sold James
Joyce's "Ulysses" in the Gotham.
She smuggled D.H. I^awrence's
"Lady Chatterly's Lover" into
the country when it was banned
She befriended some of the most
celebrated and controversial
literati of this century.
The (Jotham Book Mart was
born in 1920 at 128 W 45th
Street, just a few blocks from its
present location. At 33. Steloff
founded the shop with $100 and
less than 200 books. In 1923. she
moved the Gotham to 41 W. 47th
Street where it grew into a center
not only for the sale of avant
garde literature, but as a gather
ing place for struggling artists
and writers.
AFTER THE landlord refused
to renew her lease in 1946. Steloff
searched desperately for a new
home for the Gotham but found
the real estate prices beyond her
means.
Three of Steloff s friends then
approached Columbia University,
one of the city's largest lan-
downers, to ask for a building to
house the Gotham. Columbia of-
fered her the building at 41 W.
47th Street. Steloff bought the
five-story brownstone now under
dispute from Columbia in 1946 for
$65,000.
In 1967. Steloff. then 80. sold
the Gotham Book Mart to An-
drea* Brown, a California
bibliographer, rare book appraiser
and a loyal Gotham customer. She
entrusted Brown to preserve and
continue what she called her life's
work.
But Steloff still owned the five-
story brownstone at 41 W. 47th
Street, where both she and Brown
lived in apartments above the
bookstore. The bookstore occupies
the ground floor, and the base-
ment once housed Steloff s most
valued literary treasures. One
floor above the bookstore is
devoted to a gallery where the
James Joyce Society, which
Steloff founded, meets
periodically.
THE DISPUTE which has
resulted in Steloff s case against
AFHU began about seven years
ago when she decided to sell the
building to Andreas Brown to in
sure the Gotham Book Mart's
survival.
Steloff. in 1979. agreed to sell
Brown the building for its fair
market value at the time, an
estimated $1 million, according to
an affidavit filed in the case by
Steloff s attorney Martin Gold.
She decided to donate the pro-
ceeds of the sale to AFHU to set
up a scholarship and fellowship
fund for students and to sponsor
speeches at the Hebrew Universi-
ty by prominent writers. Steloff
planned to donate the money in
the name of her parents, who
were religious Jews.
AFHU then advised Steloff that
she could increase her gift by giv
ing AFHU the building and
avoiding a capital gains tax of
roughly $250,000 she would incur
by selling it to Brown.
Then, according to Steloff I
lawsuit, she made a verbal agree-
ment with representatives of
AFHU to make the gift of the
building conditional on favorable
lease terms and an option for
Gotham to buy the building for $1
million.
AFHU Attorney David
Ellenhorn said no verbal agree-
ment was ever made. But in an in-
terview with the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. Steloff
seemed to have a sharp recollec-
tion of the events some seven
years ago.
SHE RECALLED a meeting in
March 1980. while on vacation in
Florida, with Charle* Feinberg.
vice president of AFHU. to
review a draft of the agreement
During this meeting. Steloff
told the JTA she crossed out por-
tions of the agreement which she
did not accept, including s pn>vi
won to allow AFHU to sell the
building "at the highest price ob-
tainable." Steloff said
understood at the ring *'ith
Feinberg that the draft voul I -
amended to include a lea.--
Uon to buy for Gotham SU
signed the draft
Although a second ageement
followed, also signed by St.
did not contain any pro\ i*ions for
the resale of the boOding '-he
<;->tham Book Mart, she s.
Following the meting "
Feinberg. Steloff spelled out
series of letters to AFIU
phcit wish that Gothai
Mart be given the optioi "uv
the building for $1 million A* the
years went by and the opt
new amended agreement ne\er
materialised. Steloff became ^ in-
creasingly agitated in her
correspondences
IN AUGUST. 1984 Steloff
write to Feinberg. "I naturally
expected further discusi
about the matter I objected 0
is certainly not a new objed
nor was it an afterthought ll *
clearly understood at that first
reading that the objectionable
part would be revised I never m-
tended that the building should be
used for real estate speculation or
offered only to the highest
bidder ..."
By late 1985 Steloff said she
demanded that AFHU return the
building to her unless she received
a guarantee that Gotham would be
given an option to buy Wf '
million.
The building is now worth abo"1
$2.5 million. Brown said diamond

A responsible journalist, said
Schanberg, is an "outsider." He
' M rare independence. His
views are not molded by popular
trends He does not socialize with
'' very people he writes about.
He "makes it harder for people to
look away" from the unsightly.
SCHANBERG called himself an
outsider," and. considering his
devotion to his craft to his call-
The journalist whose coverage
of the Cambodian massacres
resulted in the film "The
Killing Fields" is a staunch
independent
ing of journalism, he probably
revels in being one. It is probably
being on the outside that gives
Schanberg the impression of be-
ing taut. Outsiders are wary. They
are skeptical. They hold their
ground.
It may be time for Schanberg to
loosen up a bit. The greatest bat-
tles of his life are probably behind
him (or, at least, the most public
battles of his life).
He has tilted at enemies as large
as governments and the most
powerful newspaper in this coun-
try and he generally comes out
smelling darn good. Behind
Schanberg are the slaughters of
Cambodia., which he covered for
The New York Times.
Forty percent of the Cambo-
dians died after the war. Those
who were not killed by the Khmer
Rouge lost their lives to famine
and disease.
AND BEHIND Schanberg is an
exhausting search for his assis-
tant. Dith Pran, who spent four
years in Cambodia under the
Khmer Rouge. Pran, educated
and lesourceful. had been in-
dispensable to Schanberg's
coverage of Cambodia. Trapped in
his native country'. Pran worked
in rice fields, dressed in a dirty
shirt and wore no shoes.
Once, he was almost beaten to
death for stealing a handful of
rice. Everywhere, he saw "killing
grounds" bodies in wells,
bodies in fields, bodies piled near
jails. He escaped from Cambodia
in 1979.
Now a staff photographer at the
Times in New York, Pran lives in
Flatbush. has a mortgage, two
children in college and has been
mugged.
"He's a complete American,"
said Schanberg.
AND ALSO behind Schanberg
are the internecine wars of The
New York Times. Schanberg quit
the Times a year ago when the
paper scrubbed his twice-a-week
op "They have stifled an opinion on
a page that is supposedly devoted
to diversity of opinion," grumbled
Schanberg as he packed his bags.
He had started at the paper 26
years before as a copyboy.
A self-described "perfec-
tionist," Schanberg had probably
never been an easy person to have
on the Times' staff, at least during
his last years there: Its standards
were not his standards, its mission
was not his mission, its quest for
power was not his quest.
Schanberg was not interested in
"interpreting the Establishment
far the Establishment." as he in-
creasingly saw the Times' role. He
preferred to tweak the Establish-
ment, tc remind it of the vanities
of power and of the poor and the
hungry and the homeless Instead,
the paper was giving ever more
column inches to spiffy
restaurants, fine cheeses and
which $150 stroller was best for
baby.
WITH THE paper's tilt to the
political neo-right. its power elite
cooled toward his column.
"Although the atmosphere was
growing hostile," Schanberg said,
"there was not a direct kind of
hostility. I knew about certain
complaints from time to time from
people I wrote about. Once in the
four and a half years I did the col-
umn, I got a letter from the
publisher.
"He was unhappy about the
tone of a column I had written
about (New York real estate ty-
coon) Donald Trump. Throughout,
I had called him 'Young Donald.'
The publisher thought it was snot-
ty. I think what he didn't like was
the criticism of Trump, not the
tone of it."
In the summer of 1985,

Or Maybe Nakash Was Simply the Murderer of An Arab
By EDWIN EYTAN
BESANCON, France
In this provincial ci-
ty of 100,000. tucked away
m the Jura mountains 400
Kilometers southeast of
wii, nine out of 10 of the
inhabitants had never heard
William Nakash, a
25-year-old French Jew of
North African origin, of
Avraham Sharir, the Justice
nister of Israel, or of the
'free legal battle that
rupted in Israel when
Sharir refused last week to
extradite Nakash to France
for the crime of murder.
Now. however, the case is front-
page news. The local daily, Le
Rrpublxcain de Lest, devoted a
full page to it last Friday and the
police, the city fathers and the
townsfolk, including the tiny
Jewish community, are angere.1

defenders.
NAKASH. known to his friends
as "Vivi." wasoonvictad in absen
tia by a French court for the
murder with two accomplices, of
20-year-old Abdelali Hakkar, an
Algerian Arab, on the night of
February 24, 1983.
He was given a life sentence, a
formality under French law when
a defendant flees the country. The
law provides for automatic retrial
when the fugitive is apprehended.
Nakash fled to Israei under an
assumed name. I mly after he was

They have depicted him as a
hero who killed an Arab in self-

Semitism in Besancon.
WAS THAT TRUE? This
reporter visited Besancon to find
out what happened on the night of
the murder, the background and
motivation for the crime, and the

Besancon indeed known for its

Sharansky, in U.S., Says Press
Here Too Easy on Soviets

By YITZKAH RAB1
UNITED NATIONS -
(JTA) Natan Sharansky
warned here last week (Dec.
15) that the plight of Soviet
Jews is worsening and call-
ed for an open, vigorous
campaign in the West to
pressure the Soviet
authorities to accord the
Jews and other dissidents
their due human rights.
Speaking at a press conference
sponsored by the Israel IN Mis-
sion, the former Soviet refusenik.
who now lives in Israel, charged
that the situation of Soviet Jew-
worsened in recent years, during
the leadership of Mikhail
Gorbachev.
"Many people with goodwill in
the West believe that Gorbachev
is more liberal, understanding and
tolerant than previous Soviet
leaders." Sharansky said. "But
the truth is that Gorbachev's
record on human rights is the
worst. He just has a good public
relations campaign. Good
propaganda."
SHARANSKY said that more
Jews are being arrested now for
teaching Hebrew than before and
that the level of Jewish emigra-
tion from the Soviet Union is now
lower than it has been in many
years.
"About 400.000 Soviet Jews are
waiting to leave, but only 1.000
were permitted to leave this
year." Sharansky noted.
Moreover, he said, the waiting
period for an exit visa is longer
than it has been in many years.
"Some people have been waiting
for an exit visa for almost 17
years." he claimed.
Sharansky arrived in New York
from Washington where he met
the previous week with President
Reagan. Secretary of State
George Shultz and other officials
and lawmakers.
HE SAID that he raised the
situation of Soviet Jews with
Gasoline Bomb
Misses Mark
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
gasoline bomb was thrown at an
Arab house in the Shmuel Hanavi
neighborhood last week but caus-
ed no casualties or damage. The
incident coincided with the end of
the 30-day mourning period for
Eliahu Amdi. the yeshiva student
murdered by Arabs in the Old City
last month.
Amdi lived in the Shmuel
Hanavi neighborhood. The bomb
was thrown about 200 yards from
his family's home where memorial
acrrkea were being held. Police
can patrolled the streets and a
hot squad was on hand but the
aernum ended without incident.
AmdTs death touched off 10 days
of i**b' on Arabs and their pro-
perty by Jews in Shmuel Hanavi
and m the Old City
Police, meanwhile, are in-
vestigating the stabbing of
Zaharan Haasuneh. Mayor of
Kabmtiya in the West Bank and
head of the Jenin district educa-
tion eyitiiiint. Haasuneh. who
is pro-Jordan, was attacked by
two anailanui near his home. He
was huapstahied in Afula where
his condition was reported to be
"satisfactory."
Police are looking for a possible
connection between the attack on
Haasuneh and the stabbing last
September of Dr Yaser Obeid of
Rarnallah. Jordan's chief medical
reprcraenutijce^ia the W*t Bank
Reagan and Shultz and that the
two said that the issue of human
rights of Soviet Jews will be "top
priority" in any future negotia-
tions between the United States
and the USSR.
Sharansky said he believes the
West should apply "strong
pressure" on the Soviet Union, in-
cluding trade restrictions and
scientific exchange limitations, in
order to improve the Soviet policy
toward Jews and on the issue of
human rights. He stressed that his
views are his own and that he does
not represent the Israeli
government.
Sharansky was critical of the
media in the West, claiming that
they are too easy on the Soviets
and their abuse of human rights.
Binyamin Netanyahu. Israel's
Ambassador to the United Na-
tions, echoed Sharansky in his
assessment of the "worsening
situation" of Soviet Jews. The
Israeli envoy charged that the
Soviet authorities are engaged in
the "lobotomization of Jewish
culture." He said that Jews are
harassed and persecuted for tyr-
ing to maintain their culture and
religion.
House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman
Dante Fascelt (D.. Flo.) takes time out from
the Iran arms sales hearings to meet with
Natan Sharansky, who was visiting
Washington to discuss the continuing plight of
Soviet Jewry. Sharansky, the internationally-
renowned dissident, was permitted to leave th
Soviet Union earlier tkis year and is now h<

Dutch Flu Vaccine Arrives in Israel
TEL AVIV (JTA) An
emergency consignment of 10.000
units of flu vaccine arrived here
from The Netherlands Sunday-
night and was approved by the
Health Ministry. It is being
distributed to pharmacies all over
the country.
Israel is in the grip of an Asian
flu epidemic, a particularly-
virulent strain of Taiwan and
Singapore flu which claimed 89
lives in the last two weeks of
November and has put thousands
on the sick list.
The local supply of vaccine has
run out. The imported ampules
are expected to sell out in a few-
hours. The Health Ministry wants
to restrict them to the high-risk
groups young children and
elderly persons suffering from
chronic ailments.
The Dutch-made vaccine sells
for 21 Shekels ($141 a dose double
the cost of a French made vaccine
against the normal strain of flu.
New stocks of the latter are due
here next week.

Elie Wiesel said here last Friday that if Austrian President
Kurt Waldheim '"has any conscience left he must resign."
Wiesel. an Auschwitz survivor, spoke at the Yad
Vashem Holocaust memorial. Waldheim 9 "election by the
Austrian people is a stain on Austria and all of mankind."
he said. "I don't know why this man doesn't resign. If he
has any conscience left he must resign."
WIESEL ADDED. "The Presidency is. in the first
place, a moral position, and a man with a Nazi past like
Waldheim cannot hold an office like that." Waldheim. who
served two terms as I'nited Nations Secretary General,
was elected to the Presidency of Austria last June 8 by a
landslide vote, despite evidence implicating him in
atrocities when he served as a Wehrmaeht intelligence of-
ficer in the Balkans during World War II.

In Sarasota
Poor Jewish Families Need Aid
By ANDREW MUCHIN
SARASOTA The affluent Jewish
community of 9,000 in this rapidly grow-
ing west Florida city was surprised to find
dozens of impoverished Jewish families in
need of social services, according to Jerry
Stone, director of the Jewish Family
Service.
But in its two years of operation, JFS
has come to serve 60 such families, or 15
percent of the agency's primarily Jewish
r;iseload.
"We do the best we can to provide a
safety net." he said, by making available
emergency loans, information and refer-
ral services. In addition, JFS will "walk
them through the red tape" of public
assistance, Stone said.
He postulated that 600 poor Jews may
reside in the Sarasota area. Reasons for
the poverty vary. He said Florida has a
unique problem of older adults outliving
their pensions. Other elderly face increas-
ing rents. Divorced women with families
also fall into the poverty range, he noted.
Stone also noted that JFS has received
letters from six South African Jews over
the past few months inquiring about the
area. He knows of one of those families
that immigrated to Sarasota.
Met Museum
Apologizes for Slurring Reference
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Metropolitan Museum of Art has
;i(H)logized for a slurring reference to
.lews in its Summer. 1986 Bulletin after a
protest was lodged by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith.
Museum president William Luers said the
Met found the offensive passage "regret-
table and distressing," in a letter to Carol
Lister, director of the ADL's New York
regional office.
LISTER WROTE to the Museum's
director, Philippe de Montebello. pro-
vsting a reference to Jews that appeared
in the Bulletin titled "A Medieval
Bestiary." devoted to the allegorical use
>f animals in medieval art from the Met's
collection.
The author, art historian J.L. Schrader,
described the owl as a "symbol of
darkness and hence of the Jews who re-
jected Christ, the light of the world, as
their king; for they said, 'We have no
King but Caesar.' "
Lister stated in her letter that "to
perpetuate this ugly medieval notion is
unworthy of our country's most
distinguished museum and a gratuitous
insult to many of its devoted patrons."
Luers promised in reply "to redouble our
efforts to guarantee that the like does not
happen again."
HE WROTE that the museum was "ge-
nuinely grateful" to the ADL "for poin-
ting out our mistake."

High Court Postpones Decision
On Appeal by Arab Editor
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Supreme Court postponed for two
weeks its decision on the appeal
by East Jerusalem editor Akram
Haniya against an expulsion order
by the West Bank civil authorities
for alleged hostile activities.
The justices spent three hours in
closed session examining more
than 300 documents submitted by
the prosecution alleging that
Haniya was a PLO activist involv-
ed in anti-Israel demonstrations.
The evidence was not made
available to defense counsel on
grounds of national security. The
justices decided they need more
time to determine whether the
documents are indeed too secret
to be given to the defense.
Defense attorneys Avigdor
Feldman and Felicia Langer told
the court that none of the
evidence they were allowed to see
warranted the expulsion order.
They said they needed the
documents that have been
withheld in order to prepare a pro-
per defense. Feldman asked the
court to ignore material not made
available to the defense.
Haniya, editor of the East
Jerusalem Arabic daily Al Fajr,
was arrested 45 days ago. The ex
pulsion order drew protests from
many Israeli journalists

Soviet Union Provides Israel
With Demjanjuk's SS Card
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The Soviet Union has provided
Israel with the original Nazi SS identity card issued to Ivan
Demjanjuk. the alleged war criminal being held in Ramie
prison pending trial, possibly next month. Demjanjuk
changed his first name to John when he became an
American citizen in 1958. He was extradited to Israel last
February.
ISRAEL REQUESTED the original identity card
because the photo copy of the card in its possession was
considered insufficient evidence to present in court. The
original was obtained through what were described as in-
direct channels to the Moscow authorities. It was given to
Nimrod Novik, Foreign Minister Shimon Peres' political
adviser, who handed it over to Attorney General Yosef
Harish last Wednesday.
But the card contains discrepancies which could raise dif-
ficulties in identifying Demjanjuk as the Treblinka death
camp guard Known by inmates as "Ivan the Terrible" for
his extreme brutality.
It bears a photograph on one side and personal and
physical details on the other. The latter include a scar on his
back which the Ramie jail authorities have identified on the
prisoners back. But the card certifies that the bearer was a
guard at the Sobibor prison whereas the charge sheet
against Demjanjuk refers to crimes committed at
Treblinka.
THERE IS ALSO a five-centimeter difference between
Demjanjuk's height and the height listed on the card. Dem-
janjuk's American attorney, Mark O'Connor, immediately
attacked the card as a Soviet forgery intended to implicate
the Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk in war crimes for reasons of
their own.
Demjanjuk. 66. a former resident of Cleveland, Ohio, was
stripped of his U.S. citizenship and is the first alleged Nazi
war criminal to be extradited to Israel to stand trial.
Yeshiva Student's Dormitory
Murder Still Unsolved
NEW YORK (JTA) The murder of 16-year-old
veshiva student Chaim Weiss in his dormitory room at the
Torah High School of Long Beach on Nov. 1 remains un-
lived. But Jewish schools in the region art- installing
tlarms and new locks and otherwise mproving security.
THE BOARD of Jewish Educ turn of Greater New
York, working with police departments in the metropolitan
area, has arranged free security evaluation programs for
the nearly 6(X) veshivas and school programs under its
aegis. Police officers are inspecting school buildings and
facilities to detect weak security points.
Nassau County Police meanwhile continue to in-
vestigate the crime. According to Inspector Kenneth
Carey, coordinator of the County's bias investigation unit,
the murder of Weiss has not been determined to have had
an anti-Semitic motive. Nevertheless, that is one of several
possible motives being considered.

Sydney Schanberg
A Good Journalist Is An 'Outsider'
Coatiaacd froaa Page 5-A
Schanberg's column ridiculed the
Times for devoting space to the
travails of wealthy suburban
homeowners instead of to the
billion-dollar problems of New
York's decaying infrastructure.
THE TIMES killed his column.
Schanberg quit. A few months
;.it*>r. he accepted New York
NYwsday's offer to revive his old
column in its pages.
Schanberg is "more relaxed" at
Newsday than he had been at the
Times. "It doesn't have all the
fuss and sturm und drang of the
Times." he said. "It doesn't have
a lot of political baggage."
i miss a lot of people at the
Times whom I love," said
Schanberg "But most of the
time. I don't miss making a wider
ripple with my column. When I
write something now. I have the
greater possibility of writing what
1 really think. When 1 wrote what
1 really thought at the Times, the
mayor was all over the place,
screaming and yelling. At News-
jay, the mayor only calls once in a
while. As Newsday's circulation
increases from its current
120.000. he'll call more often."
NEW YORK magazine media
critic Edwin Diamond doubts that
Schanberg's resignation from the
Times has made it mend its
wayward, neo-rightward ways.
But it was a signal," said Dia-
mond, "that the Times was
becoming more conservative.
I'nder Max Frankel (the Times'
new executive editor), the Times
will have to come back to the
center It can't all be boutiques
ind quiche on the Upper West
Side "
But Schanberg believes the
Times' new editorial team will
keep the paper tiptoeing down its
"timid" path.
There is now a different group
if people with different per
tonalities." he said. "But they
share the same attitudes about the
piper and who they cover The
paper reserves its vigorous
soverage for certain topics
ITS MORALITY increases
HI i story*! distance from the
office. They allowed my in

But for all his criticism of the
press Schanberg is hopeful He
rejected the idea that the intru

Book-Seller Sues Hebrew U.
Friends on Charges of Fraud
To Sydney Schanberg. a good journalist is an "outsider." He
stands a bit to the side of society's mainstream. He fiercely knows
his values, fiercely protects his principles.
Asked whether the Jew, traditionally an "outsider." was
especially qualified to be a journalist. Schanberg responded, "I
don t know. Wouldn't it also be true, in some ways, of anybody
who felt outside the club'? Thst could be a Jew or a Puerto
Rican or a black. Maybe because Jews find themselves in more
outsider' situations in their formative years, they are more prone
to being outsiders in their professional lives."
"I don't feel Jewish doing what I do. I feel Jewish about other
things Maybe I'm shutting something out in my head. I really feel
that what I do is a professional thing. It's the right thing for me."
Reform Leaders Hail JNF
Project To Honor Jews
NEW YORK Two Reform
Jewish leaders last week hailed
their movement's "historic agree-
ment" with the Jewish National
Fund through which money raised
at special JNF events honoring
prominent Reform Jews will be
earmarked for JNF projects in
Israel under Reform auspices.
Rabbi Daniel B Syme. vice
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations,
said the agreement "binds
Reform Jewry and the Jewish Na-
tional Fund even more closely
than in the past As our Reform
settlements flourish in the Negev
and the Galilee, we will never
forget that JNF was a strong
right arm.'*
Rabbi Eric H Voffie, executive
director of the Association of
Reform Zionists i>f America, said.
"We in ARZA are looking for-
ward to working with JNF in
reclaiming and building the Land
of Israel."
Among the initial projects for
which JNF funds will be earmark
ed under the arrangement are a
playground at Har HaluU. a
pioneering free enterprise settle-
ment established under Reform
auspices, a park area in Lotan. a
Reform kibbutz, and the new
Albert Vorspan Forest of Justice
and Peace in Jerusalem's In-
dependence Park The forest is
named for the I'AHC's senior vice
president.
A steering committee from the
UAHC. ARZA and the JNF will
develop and oversee the program
during its initial stages, he said.

ing to buy the building from him.
Brown cannot compete with the
diamond dealers in an open
market situation today, he said.
Bob Pearlman, AFHU ex-
ecutive vice president, said "the
facts are pretty clear we have a
documented agreement with
no understanding with regard to
resale." AFHU has lived up to its
end of the agreement. Pearlman
said. "We can't have people going
back and forth on agreements
they made."
BUT BROWN said even if
AFHU does not have a legal
obligation to resell the building to
Gotham, it has a moral one.
Ellenhorn. AFHU's attorney said
Steloff only wanted Brown to be
given a five year lease with
favorable terms. Furthermore,
Brown has never offered to buy
the building for a million dollars,
he said.
Ellenhorn claimed Brown in-
itiated the lawsuit and pressured
Steloff to include the option to
buy. "Mr. Brown would like to
purchase the building for a million
dollars to resell it." Ellenhorn
said. "The lawsuit was brought by
his attorneys we believe the
lawsuit was guided by Mr.
Brown."
But Brown said that it is the
AFHU, not himself, which would
like to speculate with the building.
"I've been running this bookstore
for 20 years I'm not here to buy
or sell real estate, that's what
they do."
The AFHU has made numerous
proposals to Brown to allow him
to perpetuate the bookstore,
Ellenhorn said. But he has refused
to sign a five-year lease agree-
ment without the option to buy
the building for a $1 million.
IN ONE of the deals though, the
AFHU proposed the sale of the
building to Gotham for $1 million
with a condition that the profits
from any resale would be split bet-
ween Brown and AFHU.
Steloff rejected that proposal,
saying in a letter dated July 1983.
"I do not understand why anyone
other than myself should deter-
mine the conditions of my gift."
Although Ellenhorn said AFHU
"still has high hopes of settling
the case out of court," they are
definitely opposed to selling
Brown the building for $1 million.
Electric Co.
Settles Dispute
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Energy Ministry and the Arab-
owned East Jerusalem Electric
Corp. appear to have settled a
year-long dispute over the utility's
debt and its allegedly unreliable
performance in providing power
to Jewish customers.
The agreement in principle
reached Wednesday (Dec. 17) bet-
ween Energy Minister Moshe
Shahal and the company's board
of directors provides for the Elec-
tric Corp. to surrender its fran-
chise to provide power to Jewish
neighborhoods in East Jerusalem
and to Jewish settlements and
military camps in the West Bank.
The Israel Electric Corp. will
take over the equipment needed
to serve Jewish customers and
will waive a $16 million debt owed
it by the East Jerusalem Electric
Corp. The latter's franchise to
serve Arab areas, which expires
at the end of this month, wul be
renewed for 10 years.

What Parents Should Know About Christmas and Their Children
A Guide for Jewish Parents
Regarding Christmas has been
issued by the Rabbinical
Association of Greater Miami.
The Guide, according to Rabbi
Brett S. Goldstein, of Temple
Shir Ami. Association presi-
dent, "is in response to many
inquiries by countless Jewish
families in the community."
During this time of the year,
Jewish families are confronted
by confusion and conflict
which the holiday poses for
them. It is hoped that the
Guide will help relieve some of
this confusion, according to
Rabbi Goldstein.
Copies of the Guide have
been distributed by the
Association's executive vice
president. Rabbi Solomon
Schiff. director of the Greater
Miami Jewish Federation's
Chaplaincy.
Q: Isn't Christmas a national
holiday which all Jews can
observe in good conscience?
A: Banks and government
agencies do close, but above
all things. Christmas is a
major Christian holy day
which celebrates the birth
of Jesus, the Christian
Messiah. To suggest to our
Christian friends that
Christmas is anything else
would be presumptuous.
Christmas is not in the same
category as Thanksgiving
Day, Fourth of July,
Decoration Day. or any
other American holiday.
Since we do not regard
Jesus as our savior, we can
not in good conscience
observe Christmas. To do so
is to violate our religious
principles.
Q:How do Christian
clergymen and the responsi-
ble Christian laiety regard
the problem?
A: Responsible Christian
leaders bemoan the perver-
sion of the Christmas
season and are trying to do
something about it. Chris-
tian clergymen and laymen
constantly speak out
against the commercializa-
tion of the Christmas
celebration. It is a religious
holiday and should be
regarded as such.
Q: Would it not be the better
part of discretion to "go
along" with our Christian
neighbors, even nf it means
observing Christmas?
A: No matter involving viola-
tions of strong religious
convictions can be regarded
as trivial or minor. The true
spirit of Americanism would
never compel anyone to act
in conflict with his freedom
of conscience. Our early
American forebearers came
to these shores precisely for
the opportunity to worship
God according to the die
tates of their hearts.
Q: What about the Christmas
tree?
A: The Christmas tree is
distinctively a Christmas
symbol. Since Christmas is
for Christians, the
Christmas tree is ap-
f>ropriate for Christians on-
y. The Christmas tree has
no place in the Jewish home,
nor should any Jewish child
be compelled to participate
in observances involving
Christmas trees.
Q: Should Jewish children par-
ticipate in Christmas par-
ties in the public schools?
A: Parties designated as
Christmas parties or having
the appearance of
Christmas parties have no
place in the public schools.
Winter or year-end parties
of a general nature are
acceptable.
Q: Is it appropriate to give
gifts to Christian friends?
A: It is appropriate to give
Christmas gifts to our
Christian friends. However.
.?.?.?.<
it is not appropriate to pre- q: Should Jewish children par
sent Chistmas gifts to Jews. CoUnued on FoUowing PaRf

A Parents' Guide to Christmas
Continued from Preceding Page
ticipate in Christmas plays
in public schools?
A: No. Christ in a- plays
generally portraj religious
themes which have no place
in a public school. < >n the
other harm, some schools
hold B BO-cailed Winter
Festival" in which an at-
tempt is made to avoid all
religious connotations. But
it is sometimes difficult to
draw the distinction. If the
parents feel that the pvrfnr
mance is free of all rvlikjmus
overtones, children may
certainly participate.
Q: Should Jewish children sm^
Christmas carols?
A: No. Carols being rcli^rious
hymns, do not belong m the
public school Jewish
children should riot be r-
<|iiired to sirixr hymns which
cmlxniy a theolo^ry they do
not accept Neutral s^n^s
that have ri" religious
references, however, are
acceptable
(J: !>> we harm our children by
directing- them not to
participate?
A: No. The classroom is on,.
among many places which
reveals the existence of dif
ferences. We further our
children's personal growth
and maturity by teaching
them that they can respect
the faith of their neighbor
without embracing that
faith We can clearly mark
these differences by such
simple statements as". "This
is what we do." and "This is
what we do not do."
Q: What about other Jewish
children who participate in
('hnstma.- observances in
the public schools'.'
A: There are now. as there
always have l>een. parents
who do riot accept the view-
point of responsible Jewish
leadership. They [proceed on
their own when they permit
their children to participate
in Christmas observances.
This confuses the children
of parents who do follow the
thoughtful recommenda-
tions <>f Jewish leadership

Did German Arms to Iran Get
Channeled Through Israel?
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) West Germany supplied arms to
Iran as early as 1973 but channeled them through Israel in
order to keep the deals secret at a time when Bonn official-
ly embargoed arms sales to areas of tension, including the
Middle East, according to reports that surfaced here over
the weekend.
Die Welt, a leading conservative daily, reported that in
1973, Iran, then ruled by the Shah, obtained rights to pro-
duce two West German tank cannons and the ammunition
for them.
A YEAR LATER, West Germany shipped 58.000 hand
grenade fuses to Iran, through Israeli channels, the paper
said.
Israel was used to avoid embarrassment and to head off
possible Arab criticism. Israel was then governed by a
Labor-led government. The information is based on
government leaks to counter an opposition campaign
against the sale of submarine blueprints to South Africa.
The conservative government of Chancellor Helmut
Kohl apparently seeks to show that previous governments
led by the opposition Social Democrtatic Party (SPD) had a
record of selling arms to any country, regardless of official-
ly stated policies. Shipments were also made to Chile,
Argentina and Peru.

Channkah
Runner from Modi'in, Israel
Brings Torch to Miami
Chanukah, the "Festival of Lights," celebrates the revolt
of the Maccabees that began in Modi'in near Jerusalem. On
Sunday, the second day of Chanukah, a special torch lit in
Modi'in, Israel will be brought to Miami by an Israeli run-
ner. The torch will arrive at the Michael-Ann Russel Jewish
Community Center, at 8:10 a.m.
"Masada." the national youth movement of the Zionist
Organization of America brings the flan from Modi'in to
the United States each year. Aspecial bAnze torch lit in
Modi'in and is flown from the Jewish homeland to New
York City. The torch is then run to several large cities. This
year it will be brought to several Jewish Youth Conven-
tions in Florida.
The arrival of the torch will be part of morning-long ac-
tivities in the celebration of Chanukah at the JCC. The 10th
annual 10 kilometer Chanukah Run will begin at 8 p.m.,
followed at 8:05 a.m. by the start of the five kilometer Mac -
cabi run.
Five-hundred people are expected to participate in the
10K run. 100 in the 5K.
After the races have begun, at 8:10 a.m., the torch will be
run around the course with Michael-Ann Russell JCC
teenagers as torch bearers.
Trophies will be awarded to the top three finishers in
each age group.
The races are being sponsored by Parkway Regional
Medical Center. T-shirts will be given out to the runners,
trophies and speeches will be awarded at the closing
ceremonies to be held at the JCC at 9:46 a.m.
Before the awards ceremony l>egins there will be a
presentation by the Center's teenagers about the impor-
tance of the holiday of Chanukah
The Greater Miami Jewish Federation's Israel Proems
I lommittae is coordinating the torch run.
The Michael Ann Russell Jewish Community Tenter is a
beneficiary agency of the Greater Miami Jewish Federa-
l's Combined Jewish Appeal.
A program exploring the past and present
of the Jewish community of South Florida will
air on WPLG/Channel 10, on Sunday even-
ing, Dec..28, at 6:30 p.m.
"L'Chaim, To Life" a half-hour special is a
part of the project A World of Difference, a
major media and education project against
prejudice, sponsored by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, Channel 10, Greater
Miami United and CenTrust Savings.
The program takes a sweeping look at the
history of the Jewish community in this area,
from its beginnings in Key West where a few
Jewish peddlers settled in the 1880's, through
periods of dramatic growth to today, with the
Jewish population now the third largest in the
U.S.
Focusing on the diversity of the Jewish
mosaic in South Florida, the program looks at
the variety of religious practices and the
ipresent-d^P reflectiomof the European ani
Sephardic roots of many of the area's Jews. It
also examines secular development in the
community, including new entrepreneurs
who are taking a chance on redevelopment in
Miami Beach by opening kosher restaurants
and business marketing specially to the
Jewish community.
Police Disperse Rioters At
A-Najah University
By hk;h orgel
TEL AVIV (JTA) Disturbances erupted at A
Najah University in Nablus after if reopened following a
week-long closure on orders of Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin. Soldiers fired rubber bullets and tear gas at Arab
students but no injuries were reported.
The University was shut down because of riots on the
campus and at the nearby Balata refugee camp. Classes
resumed last Tuesday morning, but soon students stream-
ed out to the main road, stoned passing vehicles, burned
tires and unfurled Palestinian flags.
SOLDIERS CALLED to the scene forced them back
on the campus. The students barricaded themselves in the
university buildings for several hours while troops stood by
outside. By evening, the students dispersed quietly. No fur-
ther clashes were reported.

Holocaust survivor, Abe Resnick, provides
his reflections on the past and on the promise
of America, as the program notes the
significance of the large number of survivors
in the area.
The program looks at anti-Semitism and
discrimination against Jews and illustrates
how the Jewish community in Florida prevail-
ed through periods in which hostility against
Jews was openly advertised by "Gentiles On-
ly" signs and restricted housing areas.
Rhonda Hasday, producer for "L'Chaim,
To Life" said, "I am hopeful that people will
come away from the program with a sense
that despite thousands of years of adversity,
the Jewish community has a vitality and
resilience, as Jews integrate their secular and
religious lives."
Arthur Teitelbaum, ADL's Southern Area
Director, said the program will be given to
the 'media libraries of schools in Dade,
Broward and Monroe counties, as part of the
A World of Difference project. He said, "the
program will have a long and useful life
following its airing, as social studies and
history teachers use it in their classes as they
teach about the multicultural makeup of
South Florida."
Affirmative Action To
Strengthen Israel's Economy
By ELMER L. WINTER
Chairman
Committee for Economic
Growth of Israel
American aliyah to Israel is
handicapped by the failure to
find an effective way in which
American Jews can bring their
skills and experience to pro-
ductive and challenging jobs in
Israel. There's no easy way to
get them into the mainstream
of Israel's business life. Hut if
structure were created to
ease their way into the Israeli
economic scene, there would
be a double dividend, both in
greater aliyah and a stronger
Israeli economy.
(letting more American
companies to open factories in
Israel is one way. It is good to
know that Motorola is plann-
ing to open a factory in Arad.
and Vishay Intertecnnology in
Dimona. This will bring
4MMU tech meat ad-
ministrative and management
personnel to Israel, and I have
no doubt that some perhaps
many will stay.
ISRAEL ALSO needs a
vehicle for bringing retired
U.S. executives to work on
production marketing and
management problems in
Israel. This will give a real
raison d'etre for aliyah to peo-
ple who cannot now see
themselves as new
immigrants.
What Israel must do, in
short, is to provide oppor-
tunities for American .lews to
find jobs in their fields not
necessarily as immigrants.
Let's get them to Israel first.
In my judgment, there will be
an inevitable spillover in
aliyah as they make friends.
get involved, find mates.
High priority should be
given to an "Israel En-
trepreneur Center.'' Many
Israelis have told me they are
concerned by a new form of
"brain drain" the emigra-
tion of many Israeli engineers
and scientists who cannot find
capital to start their own high-
tech businesses at home. These
men and women are important
assets which Israel can ill-
afford to lose.
THEIR NEEDS for capital
cannot now be satisfied
through regular channels. A
program in Israel to provide
equity-funding for emerging
companies will be risky, of
course. But the rewards could
be great. Here government
funds might be matched by
eapital from American
investors.
The need to boost Israel's
'onomy is underscored by the
I ndersecretary of State for
Economic Affairs. W. Allen
Wallis, who predicted recently
that Israel might receive $1
billion less in U.S. assistance
next year than this. He warned
further that the Gramm-
Rudman Law could take

The police inspector who was in
charge of the case, a veteran of

confessed to be "deeply surpris-

turmoil.
"WITHOUT A SHADOW of a

Jacques Lorach. president of
the Beaancon branch of LICRA.
the Internationa] League Against
Anti-Semitism, told this reporter
he was "revolted" by insinuations
that Beaancon might be a hotbed
of anti-Semites.
Lorach. s 72-year-old lawyer,
served as Deputy- Mayor for 25
years. "Never in all my life, and
certainly not in my political
career, have I heard or been told
about any anti-Semitic remark."
he said. "Not even my bitterest
political opponents, including the
extreme right, have ever tried to
use this weapon (anti-Semitism)
against me."
LORACH'S WIFE, a survivor
of Bergen-Belsen who lost most of
her family at Auschwitz, founded
a local museum in honor of French
Jewish deportees in the Citadel
which overlooks the city. It is one
of the largest and most impressive
memorials to the Holocaust out-
side the Yad Vashem. in
Jerusalem.
It was financed exclusively by
the city and the regional
authorities. The museum covers
four floors and has a staff of more
than 20. At its entrance, carved in
rock, stands a figure representing
the Jewish deportees, a gift of the
region's beat known sculptor.
Gerard Oudinot.
Ironically. Oudinot's son was
guilty of the only and-Semitic
manifestation known in Beaancon.

defenders in Israel as "proof" of

A Vexing Question In Israel:
Are Bankers Being Overpaid
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) Are
Israel's bankers overpaid in the
context of the country's salary
scale? Tel Aviv University Prof.
Aryeh Qoberson thinks so. and
the Knesset and the public want to
know. But figures IM4 by the
Knesset Finance Committee last
Monday, instead of answering the
question, sparked further debate.
They showed that the 10 top-
ranking officials of Bank Leumi
earn gross salaries in the Shekel
equivalent of $8,000 a month,
apart from their expense ac-
counts, company cars and
telephone bills which are paid by
the bank
Other leading banks are leas
generous. The Hiatadrut-owned
Bank Hapoaiim pays its top ex
ecutives an average of about
14.000 a month, plus cars and
other perquisites This is a far cry
from the $20,000 a month Prof.
Globerson claims is the remunera-
tion received by bankers.
Likud Liberal M K Peaaah Crup-
per said the figures were "not out
of line for Israel." He said many
executives in the private and
public sectors earn more, "so
what is all the fuss shout?"
But Haim Ramon, the ranking
Labonte on the committee, said
the salary figures were misleading
because they did not include the
expense accounts and "perks"
which significantly increased the
bankers' income. He noted that
since the collapse of bank shares
in the October. 1983 financial
panic, the solvency of the coun-
try's leading banks has been
guaranteed "by the public purse."
monkeys are forbidden to enter
this bar." He was sued by LICRA
and fined 5.000 Francs.
"There might be anti-Semites in
Besancon we cannot read into
peoples' hearts." Lorach said.
"All I know is that after the Rue
Copernic Synagogue bombing (in
Paris in 1980) over 3.000 people
marched in protest through this
city's streets." There are 150
Jewish families and fewer than
500 Jews in Besancon.
ABOUT A third of them came
here from North Africa in the
1950's and early 1960s. They
have had integration problems.
Besancon is a cold city, climatical-
ly and psychologically. But those
who spoke to this reporter said
they encountered no anti-
Semitism.
What of Nakash's family? Its
first member to arrive in Besan-
con was Vivi's older brother. Mar-
co, born in 1954 in Setif, Algeria,
when it was still a Department of
France. The entire family moved
to France after Algerian in-
dependence. In 1958 they settled
in Bagneux, a poor and dreary
Paris suburb.
Marco worked as s clerk, then
as a salesman at a flea market. In
1986 he was arrested and sentenc-
ed for pimping. After serving
time, he arrived in Besancon and
took a job as a waiter at a
restaurant/bar owned by a Jewish
family from Algeria, the El Beze
brothers. One of the latter
reportedly has a criminal record
Later. Marco opened a bar of his
own in partnership with an Alsa-
tian Catholic couple. It was called
"The Select." Like other bars in
town, it catered to s working
class, and. in some cases, criminal
clientele. When patrons failed to
settle their bills, musclemen were
hired to "collect."
Oti OF the Bars problem
customers was Hakkar. who
drank a lot. didn't pay and
boasted of it to his friends. He was
known locally as a hoodlum. Ac-
cording to Hassen Hamoudi's
testimony at his trial. Vivi Nakash
asked him and Charlie Mimi to
help his brother Marco deal with
the problem. The three of them
were childhood friends from
Bagneux.
Police stressed that Nakash
would not have asked an Algerian
Arab. Hamoudi. and Mimi. a
mulatto, to help if his reasons for
attacking Hakkar were political.
The three obtained guns in
Paris. According to Hamoudi.
they planned to use them in s
hold-up and to give Hakkar no
more than a thorough beating.
Police tend to believe that version
After tracking down Hakkar on
the night of Feb. 24. they chased
him. For some reason they panick-
ed and opened fire. When police
reached the scene of the shooting.
Hakkar was dead with 14 bullets
in bis body.
THE MURDER was quickly
solved, but by then Nakash had fl
ed to Israel and Mimi to Florida
They got away because of a
jurisdictions! mix up at police
headquarters between the city
and regional police. Hamoudi was
arrested a few days later in the
south of France.
Janine Simonin, a non-Jewish
lawyer who has close ties to the
Jewish community here, said she
was "horrified" by what she read
and heard about the defense put
up for Nakash in Israel.
As for anti-Semitism in Beaan-
con, she recalled that when the
Israeli Ambassador. Ovadia Sof-
fer, visited the city last year, "he
was welcomed like s king." The
museum of the French Jewish
deportees was decorated with
huge Israeli flags. "Can anyone
doubt our city's feelings toward
Israel?" she asked

Utter To Editor:
We Think The Women's League
Has Been Brainwashed
EDITOR. The Jewxth Flondian
My family, friends and 1 are
Conservative Sau/goers and
want to remark on an item which
we read in The Jewish Flondian.
We do not agree with
everything Rabbi Meir Kahane, a
member of the Knesset and a
founder of the Jewish Defense
League, does and says, but we are
aghast at the action taken by the
Women's League for Conser-
vative Judaism in condemning
this Rabbi's policies and asking
others to join them in boycotting
him.
They seem to be following in the
footsteps of certain rabbis who
are jealous of his courage and
abilities.
IT IS not racist to offer to pay
the Arabs, who have 22 countries
to choose from, to move from the
State of Israel, and in fact this
course was taken already when
Israel became a state.
We think the Women's League
has been brainwashed by such
people as Clovis Maksoud. the
Arab League observer at the I'N.
who strongly encourages ter-
rorism as if he himself carried the
guns and bombs with which to kill
innocent people.
Maksoud would also have his
listeners believe that Israel has
the 22 countries, and the Arabs
only one small spot on the map.
Quiet the opposite is of course
true.
Has the Conservative Women's
League any better suggestion
than Rabbi Kahane's for the sur-
vival of Jews and Judaism?
IT IS a well known fact that the
Arabs will over run the State of
Israel in due course just by
natural processes if something is
not done.
By making the huge mistake of
returning the Sinai to Egypt for
less than fragile promises, which
Rabbi Kahane also opposed, the
Israelis are greatly impoverished
in space and well-being for the
future. It is not always good to act
upon every desire of even as fine a
friend as the U.S.A.. and by now it
should be clear that our cons-
cienceless Conservative "cash
register" rabbis in America and a
group such as the Women's
League for Conservative Judaism
are hiding their heads in the sand.
The threat to extinguish our
religion and people will not go
away by doing this. Leaders such
as Rabbi Kahane are extremely
hard to come by in this dollar-
riddled country, and in our opi-
nion he is the one and only saving
grace which Israel and our people
everywhere have. He may
perhaps be the Moses of modern
times.

New Generation
Of Orthodox
Jews Hailed
STAMFORD, Conn. (JTA) -
U.S. Orthodox Jewry is now able
to provide "alternative leader-
ship" to American Jewry in lieu of
those leaders who have abandon-
ed Jewish tradition, according to
Rabbi Moshe Sherer, president of
Agudath Israel of America.
Speaking here at the opening of
the Orthodox organization's 64th
national convention, Sherer hailed
the ascendancy of a new genera-
tion of Orthodox Jews committed
to the Torah and activism on its
behalf.
He criticized what he said was
an "unholy alliance" of secular.
Conservative and Reform Jewish
leaders to change the policies of
non-Zionist yeshivoth in Israel by
attempting to cut off their Jewish
Agency funding raised through
the United Jewish Appeal.
Rabbi Berel Wein of Monsey.
N.Y. rapped non-Orthodox
leaders and the media, including
the English-Jewish press, for por-
traying Orthodox Jews as
fanatical fragmenters of Jewish
unity rather than the keepers of
tradition.

Police Ban
Protest Marches

avoid a repetition of the disorders
that followed the fatal stabbing of

Arabs in the Old City Nov. 15.
The ban. which applies to Jews
and Arabs alike, was denounced
by both leftist and rightwing
elements. It was ordered by Police
Chief David Kraus. who said
funeral processions would be
restricted to cemetery grounds.
The Art Club of the Jewish High School of South Florida
has given food coloring a whole new meaning. They have
designed and painted a mural using one full wall of the
school's Cafetorium.
"Because art is a brand new program in the school, we
M are trying as much as possible to give exposure to the
Department," says Elena Jacobs, Art Club Instructor and
- a recent graduate of Hunter College in New York.
"The mural," says Eric Sublin, one of the seven students
involved in the project, "is intended to make students want
to be in the cafeteria."
The seven students involved in the Art Club are Jackie
Abadi, Michael Chernys, Ronit Fefer, Philippa Greenberg,
Traci Greenberg, Eric Sublin, Heidi Wolfish. Lori Ehrlich
and Shaw Condiotte also worked on the mural.

Award Winning
Shopping Spree
Local newspaper editors and publishers have been com
ing down hard on the overkill of the traditional charity fun-
draiser. The result has been a clever detour around the also
traditional rubber chicken plate at a $100 per.
The past few years, the social circuit paparazzi have had
to shoot at VIP gourmet galas, bail out-jail houses, Monte
Carlo and trivia nights, treasure and scavenger hunts or
not shoot at non-dinners.
In the spirit of the unique, then, during this giving
season. Temple Israel of Greater Miami. South Florida's
pioneer Reform congregation, will host a champagne party
in the aisles at Bloomingdale's in The Falls. The $100 per
couple/per ticket festivities will benefit the congregation's
education and outreach programs.
The evening will feature a drawing for the Ultimate
Prize, a shopping trip to New York City for two. The grand
prize includes airfare, limo service, a three day/two night
sojourn at the Helmsley Palace and a $10,000 gift cer-
tificate at Bloomingdale s.
But the shopping spree trip becomes the ultimate prize
for a second winner, as well, as the seller of the winning
ticket gets a duplicate Bloomie's trip award. In order to
qualify as a seller only three tickets need be sold.
Both prizes will be awarded at the 7 p.m. champagne par
ty at Miami's Bloomie's on Wednesday. Jan. 28.

Year End Tax Deduction
Looking for an end-of-the year Ux deduction? How about mak-
ing a donation to the Douglas Garden* Garden* Thrift Shops, a
division of the Miami Jewish Home and Hospital for the Aged?
Before you discard good used furniture, appliances and
household goods, call the Douglas Gardens Thrift Shops. They
turn those resaleable items into vital dollars that buy life-giving
medicines and medical supplies for the indigent residents of the
nursing home and hospital
"Last year, the Douglas Gardens Thrift Shops raised over $1
million and this year we are hoping to top that figure," said Glenn
Solomon, Director of Retail Operations. "With the opening of the
Harry Chernin Skilled Nursing Building on the Douglas Gardens
campus, we need even more community support to care for the in-
creasing numbers of frail elderly who have come to depend on
us."
Over 65 percent of the 500 residents of the Miami Jewish Home
are dependent upon the generosity of others for what are. to
them, basic necessities of life. Drugs, eyeglasses, hearing aids,
dentures and orthopedic shoes are just some of the items that are
provided with your help.
Giving to the Douglas Gardens Thrift Shops is the smart way to
give. Not only will you be helping those who cannot help
themselves; you will be making a tax-deductible gift that will be
picked up from your own home.
The Douglas Gardens Thrift Shops are located at 6713 Nor-
thwest 27th Ave. in Miami and 5829 Hallandale Beach Blvd. in
Hallandale. To arrange for door-to-door pick-up, call the Thrift
Shops at 751-3988 in Dade. 981-8425 in Broward.

parel on a year-round basis. A
nationwide effort is needed to

Synagogues, federations,
women's groups and Zionist
organizations should be en-
couraged to add another
dimension to their work
helping to strengthen the
economy of Israel. Today there
is increasing acceptance by
these organizations of the need
to move in this direction. Here
the Conference of Presidents
of Major American Jewish
Organizations, with links to
religious and secular bodies,
has a key role. Its new chair-
man. Morns Ahram. has said
that Israel's economy will be
among his highest priorities.
But he needs the cooperation
of the Conference's 40
member organizations, par
ticularlv in the task of creating
a genuine demand for Israeli
products.

aeli companies could
tors the potential for

lise capital. Son*
eli firms are listed on the
New York and American
Stock Exchanges and over-
i lunter. More are coming.
Recently Harvey M. Krueger,
managing director of Shearson
Lehman American Express,
one of Wall Street's major
firms, said that the present
level of Israeli stocks could of-
fer "a rare opportunity to buy
Israeli stocks cheaply." I
believe many Americans
Jews and non-Jews would
invest in an Israeli mutual
fund that was well managed
and offered investors an op-
portunity to participate in
Israel's high-tech and other
growing industries.
I strongly believe there is a
vast untapped potential to help
Israel achieve economic self-
reliance. American Jews will
commit themselves to affir-
mative action in behalf of
Israel's economy if only
Israel and Jewish communal
leadership in the U.S. will
show them how.

Reagan Names Carlucci As
Assistant For National
Security Affairs

By DAVID FRIK DM AN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
President Reagan has an-
nounced the appointment of
Frank Carlucci, a former
Deputy Secretary of
Defense and deputy director
of the Central Intelligence
Agency, as his Assistant for
National Security Affairs.
He succeeds Vice Admiral John
Poindexter. who resigned after it
was learned funds from the sale of
American arms to Iran were
deposited in a secret fund in
Switzerland for the Contras. the
force fighting the Sandinista
regime in Nicaragua.
Carlucci. 56, is considered close
to Defense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger. He served under
Weinberger in the Nixon Ad-
ministration and as Weinberger's
deputy at the Pentagon from 1981
until December. 1983.
THIS HAS caused speculation
in Washington that in Reagan's
last two years. Weinberger will be
the major voice in national securi-
ty affairs, a position dominated by
Secretary of State George Shultz
for the last few yean.
Nevertheless. State Depart-
ment spokesman Charles Redman
said Shultz was "delighted" that
Reagan has appointed Carlucci.
who he said has "proven abilities
across the whole range of national
security affairs."
Carlucci is credited with the
Defense Department's policy in
the early days of the Reagan Ad-
ministration of trying to sell arms
abroad, particularly in the Middle
Kast. He is believed to have pro-
posed the AWACS sale to Saudi
Arabia in 1981 and had pushed for
arms for the Saudis when he was
deputy directOf of the CIA in the
Carter Administration from 1978
u. 1M1.
A career foreign service officer
from 1956 to 1969. Carlucci also
served in the Nixon Administra
tion as dim-tor of the Office of
Economic Opportunity deputy
director of th- I )ffice of Manage-
ment and Budget, undersecretary
of the Department of Health.
Education and Welfare and Am

About (Mianukah
First Candle Friday Eve
.
RememBeRinq the maccaBees
A Victocy Over pagan domination ano puRipcation of the temple

By DVORA WAYSMAN
It is winter in Jerusalem. In
the Hebrew month of Kislev.
which usually falls in late
December, tiny candles are
burning in nine-branched
candelabra on balconies and
window-ledges throughout the
city as Jews everywhere
celebrate Chanukah. They are
<<>mmemorating the victory of
the Maccabees over the
Seleucid empire and the
purification of the Temple in
the year 165 BCE.
After the destruction of the
Second Temple, it was pro-
hibited to make replicas of the
Temple's seven-branched
Menorah. Thus menorot today
have eight branches plus the
shamash.
The first Menorah. the one
in the Tabernacle created in
the Sinai wilderness, is ex-
plicitly described in two places
in Exodus chapters 25:31-38
and 37:17-24. We are told that
Bezalel, the craftsman who
made all the vessels for the
Tabernacle, made the
Menorah of pure gold.
The stem and branches were
of beaten work, and its
calyxes, knobs and flowers
were of one piece. There were
six branches stemming from
its sides, and each branch bore
almond-shaped calyxes with
knob and flower.
THE DESCRIPTION
makes striking use of botanical
terms. The late Hannah and
Ephraim Hareuveni. the
founders of the Museum of
Biblical and Talmudic Botany
at the Hebrew University on
Mount Scopus, which was
tragically destroyed in the
War of Independence, set out
to search the fields of Israel
for plants whose shape was
reflected in the Biblical
description of the Menorah.
They found, from the Sinai
desert to the mountains of
Lebanon, several species of a
fragrant plant with the shape
and characteristics of the
biblical Menorah.
These fall into the genus
Sal via. member of the sage
family, in Hebrew, moriah. It
has branches stemming from
its sides: three branches from
one side and three from the
other exactly as described in
Exodus. The leaves below each
pair of branches are described
in the Bible as designed like a
kaftor, often translated as
"calyx" or "knob."
The Temple Menorah stood
in the south of the Temple and
represented the prayer for a
successful olive crop, the oil of
which burnt continually. It was
a cosntant light and also a
symbol of vigilant prayer. The
burning of fragrant incense
w always combined with
lighting the lamps of the
Menorah:
"ON IT (the altar) Aaron
shall burn fragrant incense;
every morning when he tends
the lamps he shall burn the in-
cense, and when he lights the
lamps between dusk and dark,
he shall burn the incense; so
there shall be a perpetual bur-
ning of incense before the
Lord for all your generations."
(Exodus 30:7-8)
The moriah plant, shaped
like the menorah. releases its
fragrance in the heat of the
day. Light and fragrance, in
nature, were brought together
by the Creator, just as the
lamps and scent of incense
were brought together in the
Temple, where the Menorah
was lit with "pure oil of pound-
ed olives."

making youp Own Can&les
Can&le-OippmQ Can Be
messy, But Satisfying
With the start of Chanukah
at sundown on Friday, Dec. 26,
windows in Jewish homes
throughout the world will be
enhanced by the glow of
Chanukah Menorahs. Each
year, on the 25th of Kislev on
the Jewish calendar, the
Menorah or Chanukiyah is
brought out, polished and
cleaned, and placed on the win-
dow sill for the neighborhood
to see. As twilight approaches
and the first stars appear.
Jews around the world say
blessings and light the first
candle. Chanukah has then of-
ficially begun.
ON EACH of the next seven
nights, the number of candles
lit is increased by one and
kindled from right to left, so
that at the end of the holiday,
eight candles plus the
Shamash stand aflame. The
Shamash is a "helper" candle
which stands above the rest,
either in the center or to one
side of the Menorah, and is us-
ed to kindle the flame of the
other candles.
The lighting of the Menorah
commemorates the rededica-
tion of the Temple in
Jerusalem by Judah Maccabee
and his followers who, against
overwhelming odds, fought to
practice their religious beliefs.
The Chanukah Menorah is the
most important symbol of
Chanukah.
Originally, Chanukiyot were
oil candlesticks of all shapes.
Eventually however, the
familiar shape of eight bran-
ches plus a shamash became
popular.
Although the original
Menorahs were kindled with
oil and wicks, today's candles
are the more familiar sources
of light. The lighting of the
Chanukah Menorah, which is
such a treat for children, will
be even more of a treat when
the candles are homemade.
The following is a candle-
dipping recipe, which parents
and children can make
together.
FOR THE candle-dipping
you will need paraffin, cotton
string or store-bought candle
wicks, newspaper, cooking
pot, tall tin can (should fit com-
fortably in pot), fork, and
scissors.
Candle-dipping can be
messy. Spread newspaper
around where you will be
working.
Fill the can about 2/3 full
of water and place it in the pot.
Fill the pot about Vi full of
water and put over medium
heat.
As the water in the pot and
can begins to boil, add chunks
of paraffin to the can until it is
nearly full. Wax is lighter than
water, and as it melts, it will
form a layer on top of the
water.
For candle-dipping, the
melted wax must be at just the
right temperature not too
hot, or the wax will slide off
the wick; not too cool, or it will
be too thick for dipping. You'll
have to find the right
temperature by trial and error.
In general, turn the heat down
to a low setting once the wax
has melted, or else turn it off.
(If you turn the heat off, make
sure the wax does not begin to
thicken.)
Cut a piece of cotton string
or wicking material at least
twice as long as the can is high,
and weave it between the pro-
ngs of a fork, leaving the ends
dangling.
Holding the fork handle,
dip the dangling wicks into the
can until they touch bottom.
As the wicks pass through the
layer of molten wax. the wax
will be deposited on them. Pull
the wicks out of the can and
wait for the wax to harden. Be
sure to keep the two wicks
separated.
Continue to dip. always let-
ting the wax harden between
dippings After a few dipping.
the wicks may need to be
straightened, but as the wax
builds up. the candles will
become quite stiff and straight
on their own. Dip the wicks
quickly in and out of the wax
until the candles are the
thickness you want. It takes
many dippings sometimes
50 before the candle is fat.
(You may sfKtii up the t
by filling a tall pitcher with
cold water and alternately dip-
ping the candles between the
wax and the water i
When your candles are
complete. the> will have the
connecting wick between
them. Snip the loop with a
scissors and trim the w
about half-an-inch.

TEL AVIV (JTA) -
The Supreme Court ordered
William Nakash to be held in
custody last Tuesday pen
ding a hearing Dec. 23 on a
petition to overrule the deci-
sion by Justice Minister
Avraham Shanr not to ex-
tradite him to France.
Nakaah, 26, was sentenced in
absentia to life imprisonment by a
French court for the 1983 murder
of an Arab in Besancon in eastern
France. A five member panel of
the high court will hear the appeal
filed by the Citixen Rights Move
ment (CRM).
The case has sharply divided
opinion in Israel. Nakash, an Or-
thodox Jew, is supported by
rightwing and religious elements
who contend the murder was
justified as an act of self-defense
against anu Semitic. anti-Israel
acts by Arabs.
Liberal and leftwing circles note
that the French court found
Nakash to have committed s
criminal act that had no bearing
on the fact that he is a Jew and his
victim was an Arab. They argue
that Israel should not be turned
into a "haven for criminals just
because they happen to be Jews."

Jews Apppoach Qo6
In Vamety of Ways
Friday, Decembei^26, 1986/The Jewish Floridian Page 3-C
By WILMA SL'PIK
Jews have approached God
in a variety of ways since
Abraham denounced the prac-
tice of idol worship and ad-
vanced the concept of one om-
nipotent Supreme Being.
According to the Bible, an-
cient Jews believed in a per-
sonal God who heard and
answered prayers. They look-
ed to him as a parent who wat-
ched over them. They felt he
required good works and
ethical behavior from his
children.
IN THIS century, many
Jews identify with the world-
famous philosopher Erich
Fromm, who saw God as a
symbol representing our
highest potential, the most
desirable good. Fromm wrote
that it is actually our idea of
God that places God in the
world.
"Today there are large
numbers of Jews who avoid
speaking about God
altogether," according to two
Reform Jewish scholars, Rabbi
Rifat Sonsino and Rabbi
Daniel Syme. "I'nable to ac-
cept the notions that have
been presented to them as
authoritative, they read
themselves out of their
religion in a theological
sense."
Meanwhile, the rabbis say,
"tens of thousands of men.
women and young people have
turned to other faiths, cults, or
exotic groups that offer the
possibility of spiritual expres-
sion more in keeping with their
personal God concept."
FOR THOSE Jews who
think they don't fit the mold
for being "religious." Rabbis
Sonsino and Syme have writ-
ten "Finding God," published
bv the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations.
In their book, the rabbis pre-
sent 10 major "schools'r of
Judaism, beginning with the
Biblical approach dating
from 1800 BCE to the end of
the First Century and con-
cluding with the ideas of
humanist Erich Fromm. who
died in 1980. The rabbis en-
courage readers to see if they
connect with any of these all
valid, they say," in identifying
as believing Jews.
All of the later beliefs use
the Biblical foundations as a
starting point, or a point of
departure. These scriptural
beliefs are:
There is only one God.
"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our
God is one Lord." (Deut. 6:4).
God has a name YHVH
(pronounced Yahveh) but is
also addressed as Father,
Lord, King. "Then Moses said
to God, 'If I come to the people
of Israel and say to them. "The
God of your father has sent me
to you," and they ask me,
"What is his name?" what
shall I say to them?' God said
to Moses, i am who I am.' "
(Exodus 4:13-14).
No one knows what God
looks like. "You shall not make
for yourself a sculptured im-
age You shall not bow
down to them or serve
them ..." (Exodus 20:4-5).
God acts in the world, as in
the events which Passover
commemorates. "I am the
Lord your God who brought
you out of the land of Egypt."
(Exodus 20:2)."The Lord freed
us from Egypt by a mighty
hand ... He brought us to this
place and gave us this land."
(Deut. 26:8-9).
God has a special relation-
ship to Israel: "You are a peo-
ple consecrated to the Lord
your God. Of all the peoples on
earth, the Lord your Goa chose

you to be his treasured peo-
ple." (Deut. 7:6). Also, "ft is
not because you are the most
numerous of peoples that the
Lord set his heart on you and
chose you indeed, you are
the smallest of peoples; but it
was because the Lord loved
you and kept the oath he made
to your fathers that the Lord
freed you (Deut. 7:7-8).
Israel has a continuing
covenant with God. Moses,
speaking for God. told the an-
cient Iraelites: "Nor is it with
you alone that I make this
covenant, but with him who is
not here with us this day, as
well as with him who stands
here with us this day before
the Lord our God." (Deut.
29:14).
God requires ethical
behavior. "He has told you, O
man, what is good, and what
the Lord requires of you: Only
to do justice and to love
goodness and to walk modestly
with your God." (Micah 6:8).
God is a personal God. God
is not made of flesh and blood,
but embodies all the highest
human qualities. "The Lord is
near to all who call him, to all
who call him with sincerity."
(Psalm 145:18).
We cannot understand
why the righteous suffer. Ac-
cording to numerous scriptural
passages. God will reward
good and punish evil.
However, often bad things
happen to good people. The
much quoted book of Job in-
dicates that it is not for us to
question why God allows the
good to suffer. "Would you

The irrefutable evidence
that the government of Syria

and Israel have put the finishing
touches to a joint advertising and
promotional campaign aimed at
attracting North American
tourists to both countries. Details
of the campaign and its timing
were agreed to during the recent
visit to Israel by the Greek Deputy
Minister of Economy Panayious
Roumeliotis.
The Economic Ministry an-
nounced that the campaign will be
conducted in the United States
and Canada with the objective of
promoting package tours to
Greece and Israel using the air
carriert of each country.
Roumeliotis was in Israel to
reciprocate the visit to Greece last
May by the Israeli Minister of
Tourism, Avraham Sharir, who is
also Minister of Justice.
According to the announce-
ment, they met again in
Jerusalem to review bilateral
measures by which the coopera-
tion will be implemented. The
Israelis are particularly interested
in Greek expertise in the construc-
tion of marinas, the announce-
ment said.
Roumeliotis told a press con-

sion to meet with Peres. But in
so doing he also made a
number of extremely revealing
comments about the Arab
world.
THE CONTENTS of this
Arab media event were largely
ignored by the Western press.
Nor did Hassan repeat his
comments to the Western
media.
Following are verbatim ex-
cerpts from the conference
with regard to Syria, broad-
cast live by Radio Rabat on
Aug. 7. with our occasional
brief explanatory commentary
or paraphrases in brackets:
i am going to tell you a
story which happened in an
Islamic conference in 1984. If
the intervention of the Syrian
delegate had not been open, in
front of the camera, the
reorders and the video. I
would not tell you the follow-
ing story: The discussion
returned to the topic of
Palestine, and the Syrian
delegate then, that is. Mr* Abd
al-Halim Khaddam (now Vice
President of Syria), my friend.
stood, and said: As regards the
issue of Palestine there is not a
young person, a child, a Syrian
child in the primary school, or
a young Syrian at university
who does not dream of the
great I'mayyad state (that is,
"(ireater Syria" of the Arab
past, comprising modern day
Syria. Lebanon. Israel and Jor-
dan, with Damascus at its
center.)
"WE CLOSED the session,
and I asked him to come see
me in the office. I told him. by
d. what is this thing you
have said, and what is this
hot headed ness? He said no.
Abraham Foxman is
associate national director
and Kenneth Jacobson is direc-
tor of Middle Eastern Affairs.
Anti-Defamation Leaque of
B'nai B'rith.
this is neither hotheadedness
nor anything else. You have to
know. Your Majesty, that the
issue of the Umayyad state for
us is the issue of the Sahara
(that is, Morocco's disputed
annexation of the former
Spanish Sahara) for you .
"The territories which are
occupied (by Israel) are not. ac-
cording to Syria, to return to
(the people of) Gaza or the
Golan or the West Bank, but
all the occupied territories
have to return to Syria. So
when I put the second point
(about) ... the PLO. the
Syrian reaction was the follow-
ing: the sole interlocutor is me.
Syria; if the territories are
returned, they will return to
the great Umayyad state .
"Before that just a few mon-
ths earlier. President Assad,
before an Islamic summit
meeting, met a delegation
composed of one of our ad-
visers and with him two
parliamentarians. He said to
them: There cannot be anyone
who can understand you as far
as the Sahara issue is concern-
ed better than I do because
Syria was cut into pieces, and
the real Syria is greater Syria,
and there cannot be anybody
who can understand you as I
do ... I believe that the Syrian
reaction (to the meeting with
Peres, which Syria condemned
angrily), although it was
somewhat violent and speedy,
comes within a framework. It
comes within the framework
of its philosophy that it does
not declare."
KING HASSAN has shed
new light on Syrian intentions.
Syria must be understood to be
a state with revolutionary,
maximalist aims for the Middle
East. Suggestions that Syria
would be pacified by recover-
ing the Golan Heights through
negotiations now appear to be
naive. The Palestinian issue to
Syria is properly seen as pure-
ly a stick used to further its ef-
fort to destroy Israel and
dominate the region.
Syrian absolutist goals a
greater Syria at the expense of
Israel. Lebanon, and the
Palestinians demand ab-
solutist means, the use of ter-
rorism whenever it is perceiv-
ed to have political benefit.
King Hassan has done the
West a service by his remarks.
Now that Syria is increasingly
the focus of scrutiny, we dare
not miss what the Syrians are
up to.

The Foreign Ministry's new delaying its formal submis-
economic plan was attacked sion to the Cabinet which
by both labor and manage- was to have been this week.
Histadrut Secretary General
Yisrael Kessar. speaking for the
labor federation, took strong issue
with the plan to cut price sub-
sidies, abolish most tax conces-
sions and to tax welfare payments
and pensions as well as salaried
workers' "study hinds."
THE MANUFACTURERS
Association criticised Finance
Minister Moshe Nissims plan on
grounds that it does not sufficient-
ly stimulate production and ex-
ports. The Association maintained
that while taxes will come down
and welfare services will be reduc-
ed, the introduction of health and
education levies will make it im-
possible for employers to reduce
their workers' pre-tax wage
packages.
The four-member Ministeral
Economic Committee consisting
of Nissim. Premier Yitzhak
Shamir. Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres and Minister of Economic
Coordination Gad Yaacobi met
with Histadrut leaders and in-
dustrialists Monday. They made
little progress, although Shamir
said afterwards there was agree-
ment "in principle."
Likud Deputy Premier and
Housing Minister David Levy
emerged as another leading critic
of the plan. He said he would "not
support" the new measures if
they reduced the living standards
of the lowest bracket wage-
earners while increasing the in-
come of the best-paid employees
and the self-employed.
Nissim and his aides have of-
fered amendments. They have
failed so far to satisfy the critics.
The Finance Minister's problems
were compounded by the release
Monday of the official inflation
figures for November. The cost-
of-living index rose by 2.9 per-
cent, considerably more than he
had predicted.

Chanukah not quite the pestival of LmeRAtion We think
By YITZCHAK DIM R
Chanukah is not all it seems.
It is not quite the festival of
liberation that we think it is, at
least not liberation from the
Greeks. Nor is it simply a
festival of lights that com-
memorates a miracle that oc-
curred with a jar of oil. It has
become a festival of dedication
in a way that our ancestors
never thought of because they
thought in different terms
than we do.
Not that this is unusual in
Judaism, which has such a long
and complex history that
almost every instance of belief,
behavior, custom and festival
celebration has several levels
of meaning.
WHILE THE Hallel festival
prayer is included in the
synagogue service, no absten-
tion from work is associated
with Chanukah, and there are
no traditional public obser-
vances, nor is there a special
prayer book.
The engaging nature of the
Chanukah lights together with
their placement in a position
where their private light may
be seen publicly, excites all
who have grown up to the an-
nual lighting of the nine-
branched Chanukah
candelabrum These lights
have made this relatively
minor festival into one of the
most beloved of all Jewish
holidays.
During the past century,
Chanukah has undergone a
revival because the Zionist
movement seized upon it as a
symbol and historical prece
dent of national revival for our
generation. The Maccabi
Zionist sports organization
was named after the Mac-
cabeea who rwtituted
Chanukah. as was the Mac-
cabiad. the four-yearly inter-
national Jewish sports meet.
IN A STORY entitled. "The
Wheel Makes a Turn." Sholem
Aleichem depicted Chanukah
warmly and sympathetically.
In the first section. Chanukah
lights are dignifiedly lit by
well-to-do Jew. In the second
part, the same Jew. now elder-
ly, is barely suffered to light
the Chanukah candles by his
assimilated son, while the
grandson is not allowed even
to witness the ceremony. In
the final section of the story,
the grandson, now a young
adult, and his student friends
celebrate Chanukah. to the
chagrin and dismay of the
assimilated parents, who can-
not understand how their son

s
and the Ptolemaic Empire in
Egypt. At the time of the Mac-
cabean revolt, the Seleucids
had been in control of Judea
for several years. These so-
called Greeks were really
Hellenized Syrians, as dif-
ferent from the original
Greeks as the U.S.A. is from
Elizabethan England. Their
culture was a slightly Helleniz-
ed version of Middle Eastern
polytheism.
ANTIOCHUS. the Syrian
king who had just been forced
to withdraw from Egypt by an
ultimatum from the Romans,
was endeavoring to
strengthen his empire
ideologically by standardizing
the religion throughout his
dominions. He was not par-
ticularly anti-Jewish but would
stand no opposition.
But a segment of the Jews,
under the Maccabees, refused
to abandon their customs and
ancient laws, and they
revolted. The story of
Chanukah is the story of the
revolt against the Greek-
speaking upper crust of the
Seleucid empire and their col-
laborators among the Jews.
The Maccabees were not
fighting for individual liberty
as we understand it.
We think in terms of a
modern pluralistic society with
civil rights in which differing,
even antagonistic, points of
view have legitimate standing.
Our views are colored by the
situations and laws of the
countries where we live, such
as the U.S.A. or Australia, and
colored by the struggles going
on around us. as in Argentina
or South Africa. The Mac-
cabees did not think
pluralistically at all.
The First Book of Maccabees
tells us that the incident which
sparked the Maccabean Jewish
revolt was the slaying by
Judah the Maccabee*s father.
Mattathias, of a Jew in his
village who was about to offer
sacrifice publicly at the
heathen altar, as required by
the king's officers. After that.
Mattathias and his five sons fl-
ed to the hills.
IN THEIR opposition to An-
tiochus' standardization of
religious cults, they were
defending the established
rights of the Jews in the
Seleucid empire to follow their
customs and opposing the ar-
bitrary- abrogation of these
rights. But since the continued
observance of these customs
maintained the Jews as a
distinct nation, they were also
fighting for Jewish national
survival.
In their fight for the con-
tinuation of Jewish customs,
they had no scruples about
coercing, persecuting and even
killing other Jews who did not
conform to their version of
Judaism no pluralism for the
Maccabees.
The Maccabean revolt was at
first a minority movement.
The official Jewish spokesmen
and many of the Jewish
population were hostile to it.
The Maccabeans carried on a
double edged campaign -
against foreign oppression and
internal disintegration, suffer-
ing terrible losses on the way.
Chanukah is the earliest oc-
casion upon which martyrs of
conscience appear persons
who are willing to die rather
than forsake their religious
precepts. Chanukah celebrates
the first attempt to demand
the principal of religious and
cultural diversity within the
state, at that time the Seleucid
empire. Here, Chanukah has
universal implications for the
rights of groups to be different
while equal. However, this is a
modern understanding of the
struggle. The Maccabeans
themselves probably had no
such intentions.
CHANUKAH ALSO shows
that the only effective answer
to repression of ideas is a
positive affirmation of the
threatened principles and
values.
After attaining power, the
descendants of the Maccabees
became estranged from the
masses of the Jewish people,
and later their rule became ex-
tremely oppressive. The rabbis
disliked them so much that
they reduced reference to
them in the Mishnah and the
Gemarah to the unavoidable
minimum. That is also why
they curtailed the importance
of Chanukah. This also seems
to be the reason that the Books
of Maccabees were excluded
from the Bible when the
canonization process was com-
pleted in the Second Century
of the Christian Era.
In addition to its ancient
historical associations,
Chanukah. in Israel, has taken
on a new meaning. As well as
being a school holiday, many
celebrate the festival outdoors,
with torch and lantern parades
in the streets of town and
village, often culminating in
the public kindling of
Chanukah lights. It is a festival
which unites religious and non-
religious Jews, and is a symbol
of the Jewish people's long
struggle for national life and
the evolution of the principles
of freedom.

peRes Says
Jewish Settlements
diveRt fun&s fpom needs
JERUSALEM (JTA) Vice
Premier and Foreign Minister
Shimon Peres declared here that
Jewish settlement activity in the
administered territories is diver-
ting funds from vital national
needs. His remarks were con-
demned by Yoram Aridor. chair-
man of the Herut Party
Secretariat.
Speaking during a visit to
Kiryat Bialik near Haifa, Peres
said there was no justification for
new settlements at a time when
the State lacks funds for educa-
tion, defense and welfare. Aridor
countered that Peres and other
Labor Party leaders are obliged to
honor the Labor-Likud coalition
agreement which stipulated that
new settlements would be
established.
Peres noted that when the
agreement was signed in 1984,
Labor was not aware of the huge
economic problems the country
faced.
Aridor also reacted angrily to
earlier statements by Peres that
settlements were an obstacle to
peace. "By our judgement, the
settlements are not a problem of
the Foreign Ministry but rather
part of our internal policy," he
said. He charged that statements
like Peres' invited outside
pressure on Israel.

When former Californian
Judy Goldman visited Israel
with her family, the one
thing that constantly
bothered her was her lack of
connection to the people and
the land. "We were con-
sidering aliya and wanted to
know what it's really like to
live in Israel and raise a
family here, but staying in a
hotel wasn't giving me the
answers to any of these
questions," recalls the
34-year-old mother of four.
After seven visits over a
period of ten years, Goldman
and her family finally made the
decision and came on aliya last
year. Still bothered by the
country's inability to show
tourists the "real Israel,"
Goldman then began "Israel
Bed and Breakfast," a home
hospitality service that places
tourists in Israeli homes for
periods ranging from three
nights to three months.

Stpuma ftisastea Victims
SuccumBe6 to lnfcif pepence J

By SIMON GRIVER
The 762 people who drown-
ed when the Struma sank
off the coast of Turkey in
February, 1942 were vic-
tims of much more than an
accident at sea. The tragic
fate of the ship carrying its
passengers from certain
death in Rumania to hope in
Israel, auickly faded from
the headlines as even worse
horrors befell the Jewish
people.
Now, 45 years later, the
cruel story of the sinking of
the Struma chillingly
demonstrates the isolation and
helplessness that was the
Jewish lot during the Second
World War. In actual fact it
was a Soviet torpedo which
mistakenly scuttled the
Struma, but in effect it was
Nazi and Rumanian barbarity.
British callousness and
Turkish indifference which
conspired to kill the 762 in-
nocents aboard the Struma.
DR. DALIA OFER. a lee
turer at the Hebrew Univer-
sity's Institute of Contem-
porary Jewry, describes the
sinking of the Struma as an im-
portant episode which il-
lustrates the ugliness of that
era. "The problem with the
Holocaust," she explains, "is
that a statistic like six-million
dead is incomprehensible.
Recalling the fate of the
relatively small number of peo-
ple to perish along with the
Struma, however, really br-
ings to life the kind of misery
and humiliation that the Jews
suffered during this period."
The Struma was the worst of
many tragedies that struck
Jews attempting to enter
Palestine despite the British
policy of limiting immigration
to Eretz Israel. The British
maintained their blockade
even though hundreds of
thousands of Jews had
nowhere to go and faced cer-
tain death if they remained in
or returned to their native
lands.
This was the plight of Ruma-
nian Jewry in 1941 when the
regime of vice Premier Mihai
Antonescu joined the Nazis
and attacked the Soviet Union.
The Rumanians quickly recap
tured the provinces of
Bessarabia and Bochavina,
which had been seized by the
Soviets in 1939, and the
150,000 Jews living in those
territories were immediately
denounced as communist sym-
pathizers even though this
was a largely Orthodox com-
munity without strong political
views.
MANY WERE sent to con-
centration camps, while others
were transported to the
isolated region of Transnistria
where thousands perished of
starvation and disease. More
than half of the area's 150.000
Jews died.
Many Rumanian Jews
sought to reach Palestine, and
a corrupt Greek shipping
agent called Pandalis exploited
the situation. He advertised, in
the Rumanian newspapers,
passage to Palestine aboard
the Struma. Even at the exor-
bitant price of over $200 per
ticket he was inundated with
requests for tickets and sold
over 700 places.
Rumors soon became rife
that the Struma was a rickety
old vessel and not a modern
cruiser as advertised. One
group of wealthy passengers
even paid for an inspector to
visit the boat's berth at the
Black Sea port of Constanza,
but Pandalis bribed him to
fabricate his report.
By the time that the 769
passengers had crammed
aboard the Struma, it was
clear that they had been conn-
ed. The ship was dilapidated,
the conditions were not
sanitary, and it was not clear
how British immigration con-
trol would be evaded. Yet
nobody disembarked. They
f(referred the dream of a new
ife in Palestine to Nazi-
dominated Rumania.
The struma set sail in
December, 1941. It should
have taken a day and a half to
reach Istanbul but due to
engine malfunctions the
journey lastid a week. At
Istanbul, the Turkish
authorities allowed the ship to
anchor, but no passengers
were allowed to disembark.
For the next ten weeks the
Struma remained at anchor in
Istanbul.
THE BRITISH Am-
bassador in Turkey was sym-
pathetic and felt that the
refugees should be allowed in-
to Palestine on humanitarian
grounds. He cabled London
but was sent a tart reply tell-
ing him that his views could
not be reconciled with the
policies of His Majesty's
Government.
As the Struma remained
docked in Istanbul, the world's
media turned its attention to
the plight of its passengers.
Tnis generated much sym-
pathy, especially in Britain,
and at two cabinet meetings
Prime Minister Winston Chur-
chill raised the issue and asked
if something could be done to
help the Struma.
Colonial Minister Lord
Moyne was adamant that
nothing could be done. He
zealously defended the British
white Paper which had limited
Jewish immigration to
Palestine on the grounds that
vital Arab support for Bri-
tain's war effort would be
undermined.
Meanwhile, conditions
aboard the Struma had become
intolerable. The weather was
bitterly cold, though at least
that prevented the spread of
disease. Food, which was pro-
vided by the Jewish communi-
ty of Istanbul, was insufficient,
and courts were set up to deal
with people who pilfered food.

^r Bv AMELIE JAKOBOVITS
LONDON Friday night
in Xian, in the middle of
China, we ate gefilte fish. It
was served beautifully, by
pencil-slim Chinese girls in
oheongsams slit to the
thigh. Afterwards, we sang
:>nnrot. and the peace of
Shabbat came down upon
us. in this corner of the
earth where nothing of
Jewish value had ever been
witnessed before.
How 37 Jewish women and
right Jewish men came to be
eating gefilte fish and saying
their prayers in the Middle of
I'hina is a tale worthy to be
rom St. John's Wood to
Hangzhou and is even now be-
V^mc repeated among my
yr Idren and grandchildren
from far flung Baltimore even
to the gStM of Jerusalem.
There we were, a few hun-
: yards from the tomb of
the Terra-Cot la Warriors who
tiiard the 2.000-year-old last
resting place of the first
Kmperor. Qin Shi Huang, an
awesome sight which could
truly be called the ancient
world's eighth wonder,
perhaps even more fascinating
than the grandeur of the Great
Wall which stretches more
than 5,000 miles across China
and which we had earlier
visited in glorious sunshine.
_m^ IT ALL started some three
i ears ago when, through Mrs.
Ruth Winston-Fox. I was in-
vited by the Federation of
Chinese Women to visit their
country. It was some time
before I could take up the in-
vitation, and when I aid I was
told it would be very official
and .there would be banquets
and receptions.
It was explained to the
Chinese Ambassador's wife
that there would be dietary
problems; and. while our rules
forbade the eating of non-
kosher food, their rules
prevented official recognition
of guests who did not partake
1^. their hospitality and share
Their table. It was suggested,
therefore, that my visit be
reduced to a less official level,
and they willingly agreed.
Subsequently, we met the
women of the Federation at a
most inspiring, educational
and unforgettable reception in
Beijing.
We were concerned to
cultivate and develop the
cultural understanding bet-
ween these highly intelligent
Chinese women and ourselves.
At first we thought we would
he a group of some 20 Jewish
women. But the "Jewish
Chronicle" heard about the in-
vitation and called it "the
ft eat kosher Chinese
takeaway." As a result, more
than 100 people asked to join
us. but we kept the figure
down to 46, including our in-
valuable guide, Christopher
Knowles.
WE HAD a Yiddishe Mama
on board who had never been
out of Stamford Hill before -
ner children, most of them
pt'shiva people, wanted her to
have a very special treat. We
also had four young women

Lady Jakoborits, wife of the
Chief Rabbi, visited China last
month with a cross-section of
Anglo-Jewry and some 1,500

Edgware areas, typical JIA
women whom I called our
"Gang of Four"; a fine lady
from the Reform movement; a
number of typical United
Synagogue, Sephardi and
Adath members; participants
from the provinces as well as
from London. Some wealthy,
some not.
One elderly woman had
broken her leg some years
before and had been told that
she would never walk again.
"Oh yes I will," she retorted.
"I will walk up the Great Wall
of China." And she did.
The husbands of our group
needed a little encouragement
to get together, particularly
since we needed them to
create the Shabbat spirit. And
they did.
Every member of our
diverse group contributed her
or his very best towards
creating an atmosphere of
respect, kindness and cheer-
fulness which prevailed
magnificently throughout the
16 days we spent together.
This was the essential ingre-
dient of what will remain for
all of us the glorious memory
of our Chinese adventure.
The kosher food came from
London, and each day's supply
was packed in a numbered box
in foil and ice. The first parcels
traveled with us, and the se-
cond week's supply was sent to
Shanghai.
EVERYTHING was in
perfect condition. At a
meeting before our departure,
we had told everyone that, in
case the kosher food did not ar-
rive or was inedible, they
should be sure to bring
crackers, matzos, cheeses and
dried fruit, as well as salami.
But in the event we didn't
need it, we distributed it in
China before we left.
Somewhere someone may at
this very moment be eating a
kosher salami in the heart of
China.
For lunch, everyone was
given two sandwiches and a
piece of cake, and in the even-
ing there was a hot meal of
meat, potatoes, vegetables and
fruit. We also catered for eight
strict vegetarians.
After two or three days, I
could no longer drink the boil-

she recalls. Recruiting through
an ad in the Jerusalem Post,
Goldman found 80 English-
speaking families from around
the country who were willing
to act as hosts.
Knowing that the memories
a tourist brings home are as
much colored by his ex-

waiters and inkeepers as they
are by his emotions at the

also evaluate them for love of

don't want tourists to come
and just hear complaints about
the country without love and

Visitors to Gesa Vernik's

receive a bed plus continental

Jews who wanted to breathe
the fresh mountain air. It was
like one big family," she
recalls.
Vernik. a vivacious grand-
mother, goes to great pains to
see that her guests come away
with a good impression of
Israel. She offers them advice
on interesting places to see
and through Bed and

ed her circle of friends.

save money brought Texan

see Israel as the Israelis do.
"Last time, the only Israeli I
met was the tour guide,"
recalls the El Paso secretary.

Israeli, riding on buses and
shopping in the supermarket."
But what moves her the most

America's assistance to Israel is
"a highly productive bargain." ac-
cording to Sen. Larry Pressler
(R.. S.D.). "One outstanding and
less appreciated fact is the
tremendous return the U.S. ob-
tains from its small economic and
security assistance contribution to
Israel, he told some 600 people at
the annual New York region din-
ner of the Zionist Organization of
America here.
Pressler. who is chairman of the
Senate Subcommittee on Euro-
pean Affairs, and formerly M
chairman of the Senate Arms
Control Committee, noted that
the $3 billion in U.S. aid to Israel
pales in comparison with what the
U.S. spends in defense of NATO
countries.
"AT A TIME when the U.S.
spends more in defense of Japan
than the Japanese themselves
spend on their defense, more
Americans need to know about
the returns we obtain from our
modest investment in Israel." he
said. "The U.S. Defense Depart
ment has calculated that the
returns on our defense research
and development investment in
Israel is between two and three
times the cost."
He cited, as an example, Israel's
development of a fuel tank system
"which extended the range of our
fighter aircraft by 500 miles and
proved that it would work under
actual combat conditions."
Israel has done the same in
other areas of defense technology
and weapons development, the
Senator added. "In terms of con
tributing to improvements in our
own defense, our assistance to
Israel is a highly productive
bargain "

Suez Specialists have Been
Looking thpouqh Waonq
end of the telescope
By JON KIMCHE
London CkronicU Syndicate
LONDON Later this month,
the Public Record Office in Kew
will uncover its files on the Suez
War of 1956. Like vultures, eager
specialist academics, publicists
and propagandists, their minds
firmly made-up in advance, are
hovering overhead waiting to
sample the hidden delights that
will conclusively convict and con-
demn Anthony Eden. David Ben-
Gurion and the French leaders of
an act of shabby duplicity, aggres-
sion against Egypt, and of ab-
solute failure in seeking to regain
control of the Suez Canal and
"topple** President Nasser.
They are wasting their time and
indignation. For 30 years now. the
Suez specialists have been looking
through the wrong end of the
telescope They have been
assembling evidence that there
was a conspiracy by the Govern-
ments of Britain and France in
secret collusion with Israel
designed to overthrow Nasser and
mislead public opinion at home
and abroad.
BUT WE no longer have to wait
for the end of the year and for the
severely filtered files that will be
made available on Jan. 1. For-
tunately, we have now virtually all
the documentary evidence of the
events that led to the launching of
the so-called Suez Affair.
There has been more self-
flagellating humbug and nonsense
spoken and written about the
1956 Suez crisis these last 30
years than about any other inter
national conflict in our times
However, we are able now to
reconstruct authoritatively with
all the necessary, evidence what
had actually happened and what
had triggered the Suez war.
Admittedly, there was collusion
which was the cause of it all: not
-ollusion with Israel, but collusion
-.oaxntt Israel. And it was not the
Anglo-French partnership that in-
.tiated it but an Anglo-American
plan in collusion with President
Nasser
TO BEGIN with, it was not a
war for the control of the Suez
Canal but an intrigue initiated by
then Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles and the U.S. State
Department together with senior
Foreign Office officials and the
then-Foreign Secretary, Anthony
Eden, and fully supported by his
Minister of State, Anthony Nut
ting. The objective of this most
secret operation was. in the words
of Evelyn Shuckburgh. the
Foreign Office official most in-
timately involved in its execution,
"to establish a working relation-
ship with Nasser"
In order to achieve this accord
with Nasser. Dulles urged the
Foreign Office to deal with the
two most serious irritants in the
Middle East: the continuing
presence of British troops in
Egypt's Canal Zone and "the
greatest irritant of all." Israel.
American pressure, backed by
Eden's Foreign Office, overcame
opposition from Churchill, who
was still Prime Minister, and from
the First Sea Lord. Admiral of the
Fleet Lord Mountbatten. They
were against giving up the Canal
Zone base. On July 27. 1954 an
agreement was signed with
Nasser which would lead to the
departure of all British troops
from Egypt by June. 1956.
Shuckburgh has recorded how
in the shadow of the pyramids
they "rejoiced together with
Nasser and his henchmen" that a
new era of Anglo-Egyptian
cooperation had begun with the
agreement For once, the British
and the Americans were as good
as their word.
SHUCKBURGH was deputized
by Eden and Dulles to prepare a
plan together with his American
opposite, Francis Russell,
whereby in return for "minimal"
Israeli concessions, and with the
help of various material in-
ducements from the West, the
Arabs might make peace with
Israel and join a western defense
organization.
However, as we now turn to the
actual process of obtaining con-
cessions from Israel as it is
depicted in the British and
American official files, we find
that the "minimal" concession in-
itially sought from Israel had soon
become a hefty territorial chunk
The other half of the equation,
however, the Arab preparedness
for peace, remained a shadowy
unreality.
By the beginning of 1955.
Shuckburgh was in Washington,
testing the water in the State
Department. In reports home to
his department and in private let-
ters to his chief, Sir Ivone
Kirkpatrick. Shuckburgh describ-
ed the initial ideas which guided
the Washington officials.
Overall, he found little basic dif-
ference from the prevailing at
titudes at the Foreign Office.
There was some divergence in em-
phasis; there was a very strong
anti-French feeling in the State
Department, and Dulles himself
wanted to keep these Anglo-U.S.
talks absolutely secret; the British
ambassador in Washington was
instructed to work out a suitable
cover-story which would keep the
French and the Israelis in the
dark.
ACCORDING TO
Shuckburgh's invaluable and in
discreet testimony. Dulles gave
"an enlightening account of the
power and influence of the Jews in
America." Britain and the l S
he said, had just about 12 months
to do something before another
election would make all action
(presumably against Israel)
impossible.
Anthony Eden complemented
this by telling the Americans
about "the influence of the Jewish
lobby in the House of Commons."
The British team, according U>
Shuckburgh. was none too pleased
with Dulles" emphasis on the need
to press the Arabs to make peace
with Israel, the British were more
interested in the kind of pressure
the Americans could bring to bear
on Israel to make the concessions
which Nutting and then Eden had
led Nasser to expect.
With evident relief, Shuckburgh
reported from Washington to
Kirkpatrick at the Foreign Office
that fears of a pro-Israeli State
Department were unfounded.
There might be slight differences
as to how much sacrifice Israel
could be expected to make, but
there "certainly was no sign that
Francis Russell or any of the other
Americans were pro-Israel."
In the original copy of this letter
in the Foreign Office files.
Shuckburgh adds the revealing
comment "very much to the
contrary." In his diary.
Shuckburgh diplomatically omits
this pointed assurance about the
critical attitude of State Depart-
ment officials to Israel.
AT THIS point. Dulles in
tervened again to repeat his
reasons why it was so important
that the Arabs should not waste
time and make peace with Israel:
for the American effort "to
deflate" the Jews which had been
going on for two years could not
be sustained much longer This
worried Shuckburgh. He did not
think the Arabs would make peace
and that therefore "'we are going
to be forced to put forward a solu-
tion much too favorable to the
Jews." But it was early days yet.
Chanukah at thf Western Wall.
By now. the package on which
the Anglo-American team had
been working was taking shape
and was christened with the code
name "Alpha." Shuckburgh was
able to reassure his colleagues in
London soon afterwards that
Dulles had warned Israel that non
compliance with the "Alpha" plan
would affect American security
guarantees to Israel as well as
military and economic aid from
the United States.
This threat was followed up by
Dulles with a suggestion to Eden,
who was about to meet with
Nasser in Cairo, that he should lm
press on the Egyptian leader that
he (Nasser) should take advantage
of the present favorable U.S.
policy towards the Arabs
Moreover, said Dulles. "Israeli
self-confidence and pretensions
have been reduced to a com-
paratively low ebb" by the
American policy of refusing ti
supply Israel with arms or provide
her with guarantees during the
last two years.
HOWEVER, as election year

Shuckburgh added a personal
note to emphasize that what the
British proposed was "a settle

hope of inducing the Arabs to

was the view from Cairo. The

K.r we are now able to read
Shuckburgh's own contemporary
account what these thoughts
were. No wonder Ben-Gurion was
shaken by their implication.
A week earlier. Shuckburgh had
ectured at a Foreign Office
course at Cambridge where he
had developed some of these
ideas. He had become convinced,
he said, of "the impossibility of do-
ing anything for Israel if she will
not herself buy a settlement with
substantial concessions."
IT WAS his belief that Israel

was founded "on a false premise
and in unnatural and imperma
nent conditions." But above all,
the British were now becoming
aware just how much they were
dependent on the Arab world for
oil and for defense against
communism.
He explained to Peres "why the
U.S. and U.K. must necessarily
nurse their relations with the
Arab world and cannot, even if
they should be inclined to do so.
sacrifice their major interest
there for Israel." Earlier, in a
minute to his chief at the Foreign
Office, Shuckburgh had noted that
"we shall not achieve "Alpha"
without painful concessions from
Israel."
For Ben-Gurion this spelled just
one word "Negev." He was still
only Minister of Defense, and now
all earlier thought of retiring
altogether from Government had
gone. The danger that faced Israel
was not military, not Nasser, but
"Alpha" Eden. Dulles, Nasser.
How could he thwart the fruition
of "Alpha" at Israel's expense?

in Thermos flasks in the hotel
rooms each morning: it tasted
like water out of a hot-water
bottle. Tap water in China is
unsafe for consumption, but
there is a very good light
Chinese beer in cans, and that
was fine.
We went to Kaifeng where,
for nearly eight centuries, a
large number of Chinese Jews
had lived. We strode along
"The sign of the lane of the
sect which plucks out the
sinews" which leads to the site
of the old synagogue, built in
1163, rededicated in 1663 and
finally destroyed in the Yellow
River flood of 1860.
WE MET Mr. Li, who had
worked (as had his parent*
before him) for a Jewish firm
in Shanghai. He told us that he
thought there were today
fewer than 100 Jews in an area
which, 400 years ago, had set-
tled 6.000.
Mr. Li himself is in no doubt
that he is of Jewish descent,
his main claim being that he
does not eat pork. His three
daughters, who have married
Moslems, also refuse to eat
pork and still consider
themselves Jewish. When they
go to a mosque, they denote
their Jewishness by wearing
blue caps instead of white.
We tried to discover if the
concept of Israel means
anything to Mr. Li. but could
get no clear answer from him
until he said. "We are all
brothers and sisters, all over
the world."
I asked him whether he
would like to see more Jewish
visitors. "Only the good ones."
he said, "the ones who do not
eat pork."
He told us of another man
living in the same street, a Mr.
Zhao, who claims to be a Jew;
but Mr. Li does not speak to
him because he eats pork. The
fact that two Jews living in the
same street do not speak to
each other could well be a sign
that they are what they say. In
fact, Mr. Zhao receives many
more guests than Mr. Li and in
the past few years has been
given a collection of siddurim.

objects.
IN SHANGHAI, with the
help of the American Em-

graves bearing the names of

1930s to the city's Jews. It is
known that she is buried there.
Strangely enough, after my
return, a man at St. John's
Wood Synagogue told me that
he was a grandson of
Reverend Brown and asked
me whether I had visited his
grandmother's grave. I told
him about the unmarked stone
in the hope that it might have
been that of his grandmother.
Also in Shanghai we met
Miss Gertie Rowland, a
72-year-old spinster, full of life
and energy, who had gone
there six years ago to take a
degree in Chinese. She now
teaches English and intends to
remain in Shanghai as long as
her health permits.
To our great surprise, she
turned out to be a sister of the
late Rabbi Dr. Louis
Rabinowitz. I couldn't believe
my ears. I told her that when
my husband was elected to the
British Chief Rabbinate (in
1966), he had received a letter
from her late brother which 1
have forgotten. Dr.
Rabinowitz had written to con-
vey his warm and hearty con-
gratulations, adding a PS: "I
always knew the better man
would lose." Gertie com-
mented, "How very typical."
WE ASKED her if she was
really happy in Shanghai,
never meeting anyone other
own faith. She replied that she
loved it and would never live
anywhere else. We also asked
her about the history of
Shanghai's Jews, but she knew
little about it and was unable
to give us any information.
Before we left England. I
had asked someone to work
out for us when Shabbat began
in Xian. as well as the follow-
ing week in Hangzhou. In
Xian. I announced that candles
would be lit at 5:15 p.m.,
followed by a service at 5:30,
and that while it was not com-
pulsory for the women to at-
tend, it was, of course, for the
men.
I also asked the women to
wear skirts rather than
trousers for the duration of
Shabbat and to cover their hair
if they came to the service, at
which they would be most
welcome. They responded to a
woman and to a man.
Everyone came. We ex-
perienced a spiritual feast we
shall never forget.
On Shabbat morning, we
held a service in my room at
7:30 a.m., followed by a kid-
dush and breakfast, and then
went walking in small groups
through the back streets of
Xian. The overwhelming feel-
ing of security one experiences
in China is, I would say, unique
in today's world, whether one
walks among countless people
in a country populated! by a
quarter of the world's popula-
tion or meanders virtually
alone in an alleyway where on-
ly two or three Chinese may be
walking as well.
I WAS anxious to see
whether we could com-
municate with the real people
of China. We managed to do so
by smiles and gestures, if not
by words.
The old people look after the
children while the parents are
working. Children are terribly
spoiled because they are now
limited to one per family. I got
down on my knees and kissed
the children, who are very
beautiful, and was thus often
invited into their parents'
homes.
They have very small rooms,
like cellars, made of stone.
There are no carpets, and the
walls have never seen a coat of
paint: just a wooden or iron
bed. a small table, lots of
medications, very dim
lighting, no heating and
always a box covered with
pink, red, yellow or light-green
silk. And a television set.
though some were not even
connected.
For all that, one came away
with the distinct feeling that
here are people on the whole
very content, hospitable,
cheerful and docile.
On the second Friday, we
had to get up at 3:30 a'm. to
catch the only train that would
enable us to reach Hangzhou in
time for Shabbat. We all
thought that we could not
possibly repeat the great ex-
perience of the previous week,
it having been so very perfect.
But once again, as we cut
ourselves off from our hecti"
pace of life, that peace came
down upon us, and it happened
again that in Hangzhou, we ex-
perienced the mystique of a
wonderful, uplifting spiritual
Shabbat atmosphere, this time
helped by the unique beauty of
the place the mountains, the
gardens, the lakes around
which we walked for many
hours.
ON THAT Saturday night,
after havdala and before leav-
ing the shores of this extraor-
dinary country. I had to ensure
that I finished my shopping list
bringing back the obvious
Chinese gifts for all the
members of my happy family,
in my case, an enormous
undertaking.
Having visited the many fac-
tories manufacturing silk pro-
ducts, hand-painted pottery
and paintings, and having seen
how every item is made by
hand and then sold worldwide
for hundreds of Pounds. I feel
a great sense of injustice
knowing that the girls who
make them receive an average
of only 12 Pounds Sterling a
month ($18 U.S.) working
eight hours a day, six day a
week. Every time I see
something which I know is
made under these cir-
cumstances, it now has much
more meaning for me, not just
artistically, but emotionally as
well.
The next morning we tlew
off to Hong Kong. There we
were warmly received by its
now-sizeable community, thus
putting the seal on a most
memorable experience in a
most exciting setting.

how the menoRah
Friday, December 26, 1986/The Jewish Floridian Page 15-C
developed fpom Antiquity
By VARDA BRANFMAN
During the Holocaust, there
were Jews in the camps who
^ risked their lives to fulfil the
mitzvah of kindling the
(hanukah lights. Their
makeshift menorot and
menorot in Jewish homes and
synagogues throughout our
history nave their prototype in
the Great Menorah which
^tood in the Holy Temple.
The Great Menorah was a
huge golden candelabrum,
ver six feet high. It had seven
hranches, all joined to a single
stem, each branch correspon-
ding to the seven days of crea-
tion. While the nations of the
world worshipped each of the
'."iwers of creation as a
>.parate entity, the Jews saw
these powers as branches com-
ing from a single Source. In
fact, a specification for the
Great Menorah was that it be
f.ishioned from one beaten
piece of gold rather than
-mailer pieces welded
together.
WHEN KING SOLOMON
built the Holy Temple, he
it-signed the windows to be
vide within and narrow on the
exterior of the building. In this
way, the light from tin- Greet
Menorah would radiate out-
ward from the Holy Temple.
mding the amount of light
treaming in from the outside.
ni this detail, we learn that
the Temple did not depend on
the light coming from without.
but rather all Jews looked to
the light and spiritual blessing
which it radiated.
The Great Menorah plays a
significant role in the story of
i'hanukah, which took place
during the Second Temple
feriod, when the Jewish peo-
ple were under Greek domina-
tion. When the Greeks entered
and defiled the Holy Temple.
the Jewish people were
outraged, and a Jewish
resistance rallied.
The High Priest Mattathias
and his five sons led a
rebellion, and, despite all odds,
they succeeded against the
mighty Greek empire. At once,
they hastened to purify the
Holy Temple and resume the
.. ihvine Service on the 25th day
of Kislev. This date explains
the meaning of the word
Chocolate

TEL AVIV (JTA) Saruta
tion workers who were called to
find out why aewers in the
religious township of Bnei Brsk
near Tel Aviv have been blocked
for the past 10 days solved the
mystery. Somebody dumped
about a ton of chocolate syrup
down the drain, and it solidified.
Bnei Brak Mayor Rabbi Moshe
i>renstein is trying to find out
whom to sue.
The cost of removing the
substance is estimated st about
SI00,000. Municipal officials
speculate that the chocolate was
found to be defective and the
truck driver assigned to take it to
a dump some miles away decided
to pour it down the nearest
manhole.
The chocolate may or may not
'have come from the Elite Coffee
and Confectionery Co. which pro-
duces most of the country's
chocolate.
Chanukah or Chanu Kaf-Hay
which is translated as "they
rested (from their enemies) on
the 25th."
WHEN THE priests turned
to relight the lamps of the
Great Menorah, they found
that the Greeks had defiled all
the olive oil except for one un-
touched flask which still bore
the seal of the High Priest. It
would take at least eight days
before they could obtain new
oil since their source was four
days journey there and four
days back.
Then the celebrated miracle
of Chanukah occurred. The
small flask of oil, enough oil for
a single day, burned in the
Great Menorah for eight full
days.
Our lighting of the menorah
during the eight days of
Chanukah is a reminder of the
Great Menorah and the
miracle of the oil. But the pur-
pose of the Chanukah menorah
is not to commemorate an
event that is long past. Just as
the Great Menorah provided a
channel to bring God's light in-
to the world, so the lighting of
each tabletop menorah has the
same purpose.
THE CONNECTION bet
ween our Chanukah menorot
and the Great Menorah in the
Holy Temple is reflected in
certain Chanukah obser-
vances. Many Jews light their
menorot using pure olive oil
and cottonwool wicks. Aside
from the menorah, an addi-
tional candle is kept burning to
make sure that the Chanukah
lights are not simply used to il-
luminate a dark room.
With the lighting of the
Chanukah lights each Jewish
home is like the Holy Temple
in miniature. Whether thin
candles or tiny glass bowls of
oil are used, the light they
radiate is a sacred light, as was
the light that shone from the
Great Menorah.

guilty included the reduction
of rations.
IN AN EFFORT to ease the
plight of the passengers, the
Jewish community of Istanbul
generously offered to pay all
the costs of a refugee camp
within Turkey for those
aboard the boat. But on princi-
ple the Turks refused, fearing
they would set a precedent for
a further flood of such
refugees. The British cynically
offered to allow the children to
enter Palestine but were not
prepared to transport them
there.
On Feb. 23. the Turks lost
patience. Without warning,
the police descended on the
port, untied the Struma's
ropes and forced it to set sail.
They did not even allow the
ship to load up food and other
vital stores. During its ten
weeks in Istanbul, only six peo-
ple had disembarked. Three
were hospitalized with various
illnesses, and three were
granted visas to enter
Palestine and traveled there
over land. The others remain-
ed incarcerated in what was to
become their grave.
The Struma, however, did
not slide silently out of sight.

The ship was seven miles out
to sea when a loud explosion
was heard. It was generally
believed that a Nazi U-Boat
had torpedoed the vessel, but
later evidence showed that a
Soviet warship had misiden-
tified the Struma as an enemy
craft. David Stolei was the on-
ly one to survive the sinking.
Being a strong swimmer he
was able to swim back to
shore.
PUBLIC OPINION in the
West had not been able to save
the people aboard the Struma.
but there was a violent outcry
about its fate. Lord Moyne was
forced out of the cabinet,
became a diplomat in Cairo
and was assassinated by Lehi
(Lohamei Herut Israel, an
armed underground organiza-
tion in Palestine) two years
later for his continuing at-
tempts to obstruct Jewish im-
migration to Palestine.
"The British must take
responsibility for what hap-
pened to the Struma.*' asserts
Ofer. "However, it should be
stressed that they were pursu-
ing their legitimate strategic
interests. The problem was
that at that time the Jewish
people had nobody to look
after their interests. Forty-

Jews to&ay Both powepful,
powerless depshowitz
NEW YORK Harvard
Law School Prof. Alan M. Der-
showitz told an Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith audience that the
Jewish people today are both
"a powerful and a powerless
people, a permanent minority,
living by our wits, by our ac-
complishments, and ultimately
by our acceptance."
Dershowitz, an author and
internationally acclaimed
defense attorney, was the
guest speaker at ADL's third
annual Benjamin R. Epstein
Memorial Lecture honoring
the late Mr. Epstein, national
director of the League from
1947 to 1978.
IN HIS address, titled
"Defending Jewish Human
Rights at Home and Abroad,"
Dershowitz said Jews are
"scapegoated" for dismantling
affirmative action programs
when "there is no group of
whites in the United States of
America that has a higher pro-
portion of people who favor af-
firmative action programs of
all kinds than the Jews."
Jews, he added, have been
"at the forefront of support
for affirmative action, while
against specific quotas based
on religion. Yet we are the
ones scapegoated as the ones

tions, such as "What ia God's
nature"' "How can I know
God?" What does God want
from his people?", and "Can I
have a special relationship
with God?"
"If there is one particular
great thinker whose thoughts
you share, you have achieved
two ends." the rabbis con-
clude. "First, you have
discovered a theological
friend. Second, you have plac-
ed yourself in the Jewish
theological continuum Ex-
ploring our relationship with
God is not the exclusive pro-
vince of theologians. It is the
right, privilege, and respon-
sibility of every Jew."

who are opposed to affirmative
action."
Looking back on the Jewish
experience over the years.
Dershowitz recalled that "be-
ing tolerated was something
very good for us in most coun-
tries of the world." He cited
pre-war Poland as an example,
saying it had been one of the
first countries to "tolerate us
as merely second class
citizens."
ACCORDING TO Der
showitz, there are some who
This is not a Judeo-
Christian culture.'
Dershowitz asserted.
This is a multi-ethnic,
multi-racial, multi-
religious country.
Judaism has no claim
to being the second
religion ..."
suggest that there "is nothing
wrong with second class
citizenship." and others who
take solace in the fact that the
U.S. calls itself part of a
Judeo-Christian tradition.
"That is one of the most seduc-
tive myths ever fostered on
the American people." he said.
"This is not a Judeo-
Christian culture." Dershowitz
asserted. "This is a multi-
ethnic, multi-racial, multi-
religious country. Judaism has
no claim to being the second
religion both because it has a
claim not to be second, and
because it has no right to claim
to be second over others "
Dershowitz also urged rejec-
tion of attempts to bring
prayer into the nation's public
"We should care
greatly about pi n public
there no
without i 'hnst."
"Then i no prayer
without inevitably asking who
is it we are praying to."
Dershowitz praised Kpstein
who as ADL's leader "bore
witness" to much of 20th Cen-
tury Jewish history. "All of us
have been his beneficiaries. He
was the killer of anti-Jewish
quotas. He helped delegitimate
modern anti-Semitism in
American public life."
"IF NOT for Benjamin Eps-
tein, I would not have been
able to go to Yale Law School,
I would not have been able to
teach at Harvard University."
he said. "Benjamin Epstein
operated his life at wholesale
as well as at retail, in saving
the many as well as the few.'
ADL associate national
director Abraham H. Foxman
called the lecture series a
chance to celebrate Epstein's
"joy of life, his love of people
and to be continually inspired
by his legacy."
Also speaking at the event.
Burton M. Joseph, an
honorary ADL chairman, said
Epstein understood the need
to not live only on tradition,
but that "we ourselves must
continually renew these
achievements.
Epstein's son. David, in-
troduced Dershowitz as one of
the nation's most prominent
legal educators and one of its
most distinguished defenders
of civil liberties and civil
rights.
