WASHINGTON (JTA) The Bush
administration and Congress are trying to
prevent a backlash of criticism against
Israel for its capture of an Islamic funda-
mentalist leader and the apparent subse-
quent murder of an American Marine
officer.
"Israel is a strong ally of the United
States," White House spokesman Marlin
Fitzwater said. "We have an enduring and
vibrant relationship, and interest in contin-
uing their security. That certainly has not
changed."
However, administration officials said
this week that an "unhappy" Bush wants
Israel to release the Islamic leader either
unilaterally or as part of a hostage
exchange with pro-Iranian groups in
Lebanon.
Criticism of Israel's role in the abduction
may be tempered if the Shiite leader,
Sheikh Abdul Karim Obeid, discloses infor-
mation that could help dismantle the ter-
rorist network in Lebanon. An Israeli
government official said Obeid had pro-
vided a "bonanza" of information about
how the kidnap rings operate and on the
fate of American and other foreign hos-
tages.
Fitzwater said experts are studying a
videotape purportedly showing the hang-
ing of Lt. Col. William Higgins by a
pro-Iranian Shiite Moslem group.
But U.S. officials have not been able to
determine whether the man shown hang-
ing from a makeshift gallows is Higgins.
There was also no indication yet whether
the incident took place Monday or some
time earlier.
The Organization of the Oppressed on
Earth, which kidnapped Higgins in Febru-
ary 1988, said it killed Higgins on Monday,
because Israel had not released its leader,
Sheikh Obeid, who was seized by Israeli
commandos on July 28, in a raid on his

"From Beirut To Jerusalem"
Times Reporter Tells Of Battle
For Truth In Middle East
*
I'll meet you at the Omni
Hotel garage entrance. What
do I look like? Like a Lebanese
guerrilla hijacker.
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
You've got to have a sense of
humor, says Thomas D. Fried-
man.
It's necessary when you're
26 years old, barely out of
graduate school, and you find
yourself covering the civil war
in Lebanon, where "death
without reason" is the harsh-
est fate of all.
Friedman turned 36 the day
he came to The Jewish Florid-
ian for an interview. That day
he learned that his book,
"From Beirut to Jerusalem,"
had just made the New York
Times bestseller list, less than
a month after it was released.
For the past 10 years Fried-
man was the chief correspon-
dent for the New York Times
in Beirut and Jerusalem. He
has won two Pulitzer prizes for
his coverage of the war-
ravaged Middle East and some
speculate that his new book
may win him a third.
Friedman had been the first
Jewish reporter sent by the
Times to cover the Middle
East. "A Jew who wants to
make a career working in or
studying about the Middle
East will always be a lonely
man," Friedman said. "He wiil
never be fully accepted or
trusted by the Arabs, and he
will never be fully accepted or
trusted by the Jews."
But being a correspondent
for one of the world's most
influential newspapers led to a
symbiotic relationship
between Friedman and his
sources: He needed them and
they needed him.
Still, there was "always a
tension in my gut," Friedman
recalls. "I was constantly
aware of the gap between who
I was and who many people
assumed I was. Whenever I
was interviewing a militia
leader or Arab statesman, my
mind would start racing
uncontrollably: What if this
guy knew who I was? Would he
care if he knew I was bar
mitzvahed at the Adath
Jeshuren Synagogue in Min-
neapolis in 1966? Would he be
shocked to know that my older
sister is a Lubavitcher Hasidic

Friedman describes himself
as having come from "a rather
typical middle-class American
Jewish family." His father sold
ball bearings and his mother
was a homemaker and part-
time bookkeeper.
"I'm not a religious person
in the least. I just go to syna-
gogue three times a year like a
lot of other American Jews."
He says he would be consid-
ered a Zionist if that refers to
someone who believes in the
right of Jewish people to a
homeland in Israel. But "some
people define Zionists as some-
one who intends to live there
- and I don't intend to live
there because I see myself as
an American and living out my
life and my identity in this

States, where he wrote the
513-page book that details his
Middle East experience.
He acknowleges that his
book doesn't offer a solution to
the Middle East conflict, but
he does suggest what role the
United States might play:
"The ideal statesman has to
know how to think like an
obstetrician, behave like a
friend, bargain like a grocer
and fight like a son-of-a-bitch."
Friedman later suggested
that America could deliver the
greatest peace possible but
only if "the parties themselves
are ready to get pregnant,
nurture a settlement
together."
"If they are ready you have
to know how to be a friend ... a
friend tells you the truth
about a situation. You have to
bargain like a grocer because
this is a merchant culture and
finally you have to realize that
this is a very rough neighbor-
hood where people play by
their own rules and their own
rules are no rules."
Friedman sees the Israeli-
Palestinian conflict as getting
worse. "I think it's heading in
a very bad direction because
the intifada began, I think
with the Palestinians saying
that what we're going to try to
do is make life miserable for
the Israelis and that was the
whole meaning of going on
strike, not working in Israel.

Yet Friedman doesn't offer
a magic cure, only the observa-
tion that "there will be no
solution that doesn't take into
account Israel's legitimate
security needs and there'll be
no solution that doesn't in
some way accommodate F'ales-

Now that his book has been
published, Friedman is asked if
he is satisfied with his work.

he concludes. "This is a contro-

Blitzer Untangles Pollard Story
By Shoshana Bryen
Executive Director
Jewish Institute
National Security Affairs
Jonathan Pollard's support-
ers liken him to Alfred Dreyfus
and Eli Cohen. His detractors
remind one that Dreyfus was
innocent and Cohen, the legen-
dary Israeli agent who infil-
trated Syrian military intelli-
gence, spied on the enemy.
Everybody knows some-
thing about the Pollard affair,
but Wolf Blitzer, Washington
bureau chief of the Jerusalem
Post, knows more than most
people.
In his book Territory of Lies,
The Exclusive Story of Jona-
than Jay Pollard: The Ameri-
can Who Spied on His Country
for Israel and How He Was
Betrayed, (Harper & Row,
1989, 336 pages), Blitzer chro-
nicles the background, illegal
activities and the trial and
sentencing of the spy. Relying
heavily on Pollard's own words
in interview and letters, he
shows us that Pollard was nei-
ther Cohen nor Benedict
Arnold; Dreyfus nor John Wal-
ker. Pollard was the ultimate
rationalizer, the ultimate fan-
tasizer, the arrogant con artist
who made himself believe that
he could single handedly, clan-
destinely, determine the
boundaries of American and
Israeli intelligence coopera-
tioni; specifically that he could
buttress Israel's security with
vast U.S. intelligence data
without injuring the United
States.
Oddly, disturbingly, while
reading, one might understand
some of what motivated Pol-
lard: his belief in the perva-
siveness of American anti
Semitism, his view of Israel's
security, his background in
American Zionism with its
ambivalent attitude toward
aliyah, and his desire to help
Israel personally, directly,
without actually leaving the
United States.
But to understand is not to
condone. After understanding,
most of us can still separate
fact from fantasy, right from
wrong and he could not.
In addition to the picture of
Pollard, Blitzer provides us
with a look at the world of
espionage and we learn some
of the rules which pertain
among friends and among ene-
mies. We also see how, despite
wide areas of common security
interest, Israel and the United
States sometimes hold differ-
ent assessments of their
defense requirements.
It is clear that amateurs
should not muck around in
these waters; it is unclear why
the Israelis allowed Pollard to
do so for so long. The chapters
"The Corruption of Jonathan
Jay Pollard" and "Friendly
Espionage" are must reading.
"The Weinberger Memo"
chapter is understandly disap-
pointing, since so much of the
material is unreleasable. But

Force, and Leah Stern Reicin

across the country, reelected

tion's National Outreach

idents include Linda Minkes of

sah's National Leadership
Task Force.
even through its censored
form, Blitzer appears con-
vinced Pollard did serious
damage to American security
interests. Judge Aubrey
Robinson, who heard the case
in D.C. U.S. District Court,
apparently was convinced as
Jonathan and Anne Pollard
well. The chapter "The Sent-
ence" brings us straight into
the courtroom of the non-
nonsense judge.
"Territory of Lies" reads
well it would read even
more quickly if not for the time
it causes one to spend ponder-
ing both the philosophical
underpinning of our lives as
American Jews and the dam-
age that can be caused to
U.S.-Israel security relations
by one person, whatever his
motivation. Blitzer's book
portrays an individual who
refused to distinguish fact
from fiction and who arro-
gated unto himself the role of
arbiter of America's covert
relations with Israel. In doing
so Pollard threw a question
mark over the relations and
gave cover to those ever ready
to charge American Jews with
"dual loyalty."
Blitzer's fascinating book
fills in many gaps, though
future historians may have
more to say about the U.S.
Navy's inexplicable security
lapse that allowed Pollard to
pilfer so many highly classified
documents for so long, as well
as Israel's short-sighted role in
encouraging him.
TREES, KIDS
AND POWER LINES
CANBEA
DEADLY MIX.
Ordinarily, power
lines are quite harmless.
But when a tree grows
up close to a power line,
climbing the tree could
be dangerous. Especially
if your child tries to reach
up and touch a power line
with a stick, a pole or anything.
And under certain conditions,
such as wet weather, if a branch
makes contact with a power line, your child
could get a shock just from touching the tree
trunk.
Always look up. Whether you're flying kites,
picking fruit or pruning trees, installing
antennas or doing any activity that puts you in
possible contact with overhead lines. Don't be
a victim of your own carelessness.

Dealing With Terrorism
Israel was totally within its rights as a
sovereign nation in its abduction of the leader
of the Hezbollah, the pro-Iranian, Shiite ter-
rorist organization centered in south Lebanon.
The evidence is overwhelming that Sheik
Abdul Karim Obeid, is indeed responsible for
the kidnapping of Col. William Higgins, the
American officer who was serving with UN
forces when he himself was seized by Hezbol-
lah last year.
Hezbollah alone is responsible for the safety
of Col. Higgins, since it was the Hezbollah
which took him hostage. Assignment by some
in this country of all or part of the responsibil-
ity to Israel, because of its abduction of the
Sheik, is totally improper.
Whether or not Israel should have taken its
action well within southern Lebanon, and
outside of her self-proclaimed security zone, is
another question. Certainly Israel has every
right to seek to regain its three soldiers and
airmen held by the Hezbollah, but it is far from
certain that the radical Shite forces will
bargain for their kidnapped leader.
U.S. efforts to free the 17 Western hostages
in Lebanon have been an abysmal failure. One
of the hostages, AP bureau chief Terry Ander-
son, has been captive since March 1985. At
least the Israelis are doing something.
The accommodationists would tell us not to
rock the boat, not to rile up the terrorists by
going after one of their own. Keep the status
quo, while the bloodthirsty captors dump one
body and search for more trade bait. There
can be no accommodation with terrorism.
The United Nations also must take speedy
action, and must call for the immediate release
of all hostages. Israel already has announced
its willingness to do just that, even though it
has hundreds more prisoners than the total of
Israeli and western hostages.
This is the time for leadership on the part of
the United States, and for even-handedness on
the part of the UN. Justice demands no less.
Remove the Convent
As important as the negative symbolism of
the Catholic convent on the grounds of the
Auschwitz death camp is the open anti-
semitism displayed by Polish residents of
surrounding communities.
It was just such anti-semitism immediately
after World War II which resulted in the mass
flight of Jews who had fought against the
Nazis in the Polish, Soviet and resistance
armies from 1939 until victory in 1945.
The Vatican cannot avoid responsibility for
the failure of the nuns to vacate the hallowed
grounds where so many Jews died. The pledge
to leave has been broken, and the Pope cannot
say it is up to the Polish Archbishop, any more
than the failure to act by the Pontiff at the
time of Hitler's Holocaust can be justified.
Catholic-Jewish dialogue should not end,
and efforts to get the Vatican to recognize and
establish diplomatic relations with the State of
Israel must go on.
But the displeasure and dispair of world
Jewry, as demonstrated by those Jews from
the United States and Europe who went to
Auschwitz to protest, must be made clear to
the Roman Catholic Church.
Jews and non-Jews alike who have visited
Auschwitz in the more than 44 years since
Liberation have been impressed by the horri-
ble message its emptiness reflects. Presence
of a convent disturbs the site, and its removal
immediately is a solemn obligation of the
Church.

Paying Homage To A Beloved Leader
By RABBI MARC H. TANENBAUM
(Copyright 1989.
Jewish Telegraphic Ageney, Inc.)
The recent passing of Rabbi
Gunter Hirschberg at age 69,
president of the New York
Board of Rabbis, has removed
from the American Jewish
scene and the rabbinate one of
its most distinguished and
beloved leaders.
Born in Berlin in 1920,
Hirschberg was rescued
through the children's
exchange mission to Great
Britain in the early 1930s.
Those traumatic experiences
might well have left him a
bitter, hostile person. But it is
a mark of his extraordinary
moral character that he
became a man of genuine toler-
ance, with caring and respect
for other people.
A deeply committed Reform
rabbi, he demonstrated true
regard and appreciation of
Planning For Growth
News that Florida again has become the
third most populous state in terms of number
of Jewish residents points out that the influx
of our co-religionists from the Frost Belt is an
ongoing phenomenon.
Although Dade County has suffered a signi-
ficant loss in Jewish population, the outflow
appears to have ended, and the growth in
Broward and Palm Beach counties has contin-
ued unabated.
The Jewish communities in Dade, south and
north Broward and south and north Palm
Beach must accelerate their long-range plan-
ning to meet with the new residents.
Plans for community centers, homes for the
aged, family and vocational services and of
u*u*at) for synagogues must be proactive, not
merely reactive.
Federations which take pride in pointing out
that they are both the central planning and
fund raising agencies have, of course the
primary responsibility in meeting the new
challenges.
But the synagogues themselves, as well as
Jewish organizations not directly under Fed-
eration umbrellas, have an obligation to see
that our state enters the 1990s with a detailed
program for growth.
Current indications are that South Florida
may already have passed the Los Angeles area
as the largest concentration of Jewry outside
of New York City.
We cannot be found wanting.
every branch of Judaism and
Jewish life. As Board of Rab-
bis president, he evoked from
Orthodox, Conservative and
Reform rabbis and other Jew-
ish leaders the same quality of
loyalty that he gave to them.
Appreciative of the role that
yeshivot and day schools
played in the life of the Ortho-
dox community, he had no
hesitation in modeling the first
Reform Jewish day schools on
the traditional pattern, albeit
conforming to liberal ideology.
Hirschberg was an active
leader in the movement for
Jewish- Christian understand-
ing. The fact that Cardinal
John O'Connor of New York
and numerous non-Jewish civic
and religious leaders came to
his funeral to pay last respects
is another sign of the wide
impact his life had.
My last contact with Gunter
Hirschberg was at a meeting
some months ago with German
Christian theologians to which
I had invited him, especially in
light of his German origins. He
spoke forcefully and persua-
sively of the terror Jews suf-
fered under the Nazi Holo-
caust, but was open to the
possibilities of change for the
future.
Hirschberg was a cantor
with a beautiful baritone voice,
which he used later to great
effect as a preaching rabbi at
Congregation Rodeph Shalom.

The Cruel Irony Of The
"Organization Of The Oppressed"
t By GEORGE E. GRUEN
* NEW YORK (JTA) Who
is behind the Organization of
the Oppressed on Earth that
kidnapped and has reportedly
hanged U.S. Marine Lt. Col.
William Higgins? What is the
background of this shadowy
terrorist cell?
This Lebanese Shiite faction
is ideologically and operation-
ally linked to the Iranian-
backed Hezbollah, or Party of
God. It apparently seeks to
draw its inspiration from the
late Ayatollah Ruhollah Kho-
meini, who declared in a meet-
ing with the Syrian Foreign
Minister on Aug. 16, 1979, "I
hope that a party under the
name of the 'Party of the
Oppressed' will be formed
throughout the world."
W This new party, which Kho-
meini said was to be synony-
mous with the Party of God,
was intended "to actualize the
promise of Islam, which means
the reign of the oppressed over
the oppressors and their inher-
itance of the earth."
A group bearing this name
first surfaced in Beirut in
December 1985, when it
announced it was executing
two Lebanese Jews from
among four it had kidnapped
in March 1985.
Two additional Lebanese
Jewish hostages were killed by
this extremist group in Febru-
ary 1986, after Israel failed to
L- meet the group's demands to
release all its Lebanese and
Palestinian prisoners and to
withdraw from "all occupied
territories."
The Organization of the
Oppressed claimed that those
executed had all been "spies"
for Israel, but a close investi-
gation of their personal back-
grounds demonstrates that
none of the victims had been
involved in Lebanese politics
or in the Arab-Israel conflict.
The only thing they had in
common was that they were
born Jewish and had remained
in Moslem-controlled West
Beirut after most Lebanese
Jews had fled the strife-torn
city.
Indeed, the random nature
of the attacks on the helpless
Jews was made clear in a
statement by this terrorist
group on Dec. 28, 1985, when
it warned that unless all its
demands against Israel were
met, it would kill not only
those it had already kidnapped
but would strike against other
Jews "on whom we may lay
our hands."
Among the best known and
most highly respected of the
Jewish victims was Dr. Elie
Hallak, a pediatrician, who
was called "the doctor of the
poor," because he often
treated without fee needy
Lebanese and Palestinian
patients irrespective of their
religion or political affiliation.
In a poignant public chal-
lenge to the kidnappers, his
wife, Rachel, described his
benevolent career and the
unsuccessful efforts by his
many friends to secure his
release. Her open letter was
published in the Lebanese
press and in the French daily
Le Monde on March 5, 1986.
Well-placed Lebanese
sources believe that the moti-
vation of the Organization of
the Oppressed was not purely
ideological or political. It is
believed that more pecuniary
motives were also at work:
The poor Shiites coveted the
homes and communal proper-
ties of the once-prosperous
Jewish community, and pre-
ssured the kidnap victims to
turn over title to property and
bank accounts to persons
designated by the terrorist
group.
The first Jew to be killed by
the Organization of the
Oppressed was Haim Cohen,
38, a department store
accountant, who left a wife
and three young children.
The second was Professor
Isaac Tarrab, 70, a retired
mathematics teacher. The
third Jew murdered was Ibra-
him (Abraham) Benisti, 34,
who helped run a small family
shop. His body was found by
the Lebanese police on Feb.
16, 1986 in a street in Moslem
West Beirut near the "green
line" border with Christian
East Beirut.
The Beirut coroner reported
that Benisti's body bore signs
of torture and beatings to the
head. He had been shot twice
and then strangled. The
Organization of the Oppressed
also abducted and subse-
quently killed his brother
Joseph, 33, and their father,
Yehudah, 68.
This radical Shiite band has
claimed to have executed a
total of nine Jews whom it had
abducted, including Isaac Sas-
son, 68, the president of the
Lebanese Jewish community.
Only three bodies have been
recovered. The terrorist group
has refused to release the bod-
ies of any of the latter victims,
despite the urgent appeals of
their families to the Lebanese
authorities and to the interna-
tional community.
Some family members still
cling desperately to the hope
that their loved ones may still
be alive.
More than two years have
now passed since July 24,
1987, when Joseph Mizrahi,
acting president of the Leban-
ese Jewish community, dis-
patched a personal appeal to
U.N. Secretary-General Javier
Perez de Cuellar urging him
"in the name of the most ele-
mentary human rights" to use
all of his moral authority to
help the Jewish community
recover the remains of the
murdered Jews so that they
could be laid to rest in accord-
ance with Jewish traditions.
Mizrahi emphasized the
gratuitous cruelty of the ter-
rorists' behavior, since "there
is no conceivable political
advantage that can accrue to
the killers."
Moreover, he noted, "even
the most bloodthirsty terror-
ists who have given their lives
for what they believe to be
their cause have been buried,
and nobody has contested this
most elementary right to a
proper burial."
As our hearts fill with fresh
grief and outrage at the mur-
der of Col. Higgins, I find
tragically apt some words spo-
ken at an ecumenical service
held in New York on Jan. 8,
1986, as a memorial for the
first two murdered Lebanese
Jewish hostages, and as a plea
for redemption of all held cap-
tive in Lebanon.
The Rev. Joseph Hare, presi-
dent of Fordham University,
poignantly declared:
"It is once again a cruel
irony that the murderers of
Haim Cohen and Isaac Tarrab
should dare to call themselves
representatives of the
oppressed of the world. No
greater human oppression is
possible than the reduction of
individual human beings to
nameless symbols whose lives
are snuffed out in some sterile
political gesture."

Jewish Committee.
UAHC President Outlines
Reform Judaism: Wisdom To Change
By ALEXANDER M. SCHINDLER
President. Union of American Hebrew
Congregation
Reform Judaism has been
the well-spring of leadership of
Jewish experience on every
front for over a century. Sci-
ons of Reform Jews such as
Louis Marshall were in the
forefront of establishing the
fj. world's most prosperous,
S secure and politically influen-
tial Jewish community in
America. The institutionaliza-
tion of Reform Judaism by
Rabbi Isaac Mayer Wise set
the pattern for rabbinic train-
ing, congregational coopera-
tion and rabbinical networking
for all Jewish movements. The
transformation of Zionism
from a historical footnote into
a stirring chronicle of state-
hood was presided over by
Rabbis Stephen S. Wise and
Abba Hillel Silver.
The great strength of
Reform Judaism, which now
numbers well more than a mil-
lion members in nearly 850
congregations, has been its
W ability to respond to the ever-
evolving needs of each genera-
tion in creating a cadre of new
leaders. In the last decade
alone, Reform membership has
swelled by 25 percent. And,
according to Jewish sociolog-
ists, its growth rate will accel-
erate even more in the future,
for their studies show that the
fifth generation of American
J- Jews inclines to identify
almost exclusively with
Reform. .
Conservative Judaism, on
the other hand, is steadily con-
tracting. Orthodoxy has made
some headway in urban cen-
ters, but it has toppled from its
former status as America's
most populous synagogue body
to where only about 10 to 12
percent of America's Jews
affiliated with synagogues
now identify themselves with
Orthodox Judaism. Only
Reform Judaism is burgeon-
ing. It has emerged as the
predominant synagogue move-
ment in North America.
Reform has flourished
because it has understood
Judaism as a dynamic rather
than a static faith. We mus-
tered the wisdom to change
when changing circumstances
required alterations, prepared
to move forward whenever
necessary or even backward
for a step when an honest
self-searching summoned us to
do so. And despite the changes
it has introduced, Reform has
remained part of the main-
stream of Judaism because it
has insisted that Jewish life be
adjusted to the needs of mod-
ernity only within the frame-
work of Judaism's historic tra-
dition. We always gave that
tradition its voice, though no
absolute authority. Yet we
never suffered changes that
would sever us fatally from the
mainstream of Judaism. At the
same time we goaded Reform
JeWs to regain and retain their
sense of Jewish peoplehood.
Let us not become sycoph-
ants, truckling for favor by
becoming what we are not. It
will not avail us. We will only
demean ourselves and lose our
distintive character. Our for-
bears did not forge Reform
Judaism to have us trade it in
for a tinsel imitation of Ortho-
doxy. We owe halacha a vote
but not a veto. And we owe
ourselves the self-respect and
integrity that holds fast to our
finest values and our most
cherished beliefs.
Let us stop romanticizing
Orthodoxy. Yes, Orthodoxy is
rich and beautiful and mean-
ingful in many ways. But it has
its excesses too. Where Ortho-
doxy alone prevails, stale
repression, fossilized tradition
and ethical corruption often
hold sway. That is the danger
in Israel today.
But where Reform is free to
challenge, to compel thought,
to affirm the power of Jewish
ethics, to throw change
against the rusted fortresses
oi pilpulism and rigid conven-
tion, there do we find new
energy, new drive, healthy
competition and a renewed
vitality.
A second source of Reform's
continuing strength is its

New Argentine President Vows
"Excellent Relations" With Jews
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Argentina's new president
assured the leadership of the
World Jewish Congress he
would have "excellent rela-
tions with the Jewish commun-
ity," the organization
reported.
Carlos Saul Menem, the Per-
onist leader elected May 14
and installed as president ear-
lier this month, met in Buenos
Aires with a delegation headed
by Edgar Bronfman, the WJC
president.
The WJC leaders flew to the
Argentine capital Saturday
night to meet with Menem and
other Latin American leaders,
including the newly elected
president of Venezuela and
representatives of the Jewish
communities of Argentina,
Brazil and Venezuela.
WJC leaders were particu-
larly interested in meeting
with Menem because of the
Peronist party's legacy of anti-
Semitism.
But Argentine Jews of all
IRS Widens
Fight Against
Laundering
"Laundering of money does
not make it clean," says Merlin
W. Heye. district director of
the Internal Revenue Service.
South Florida has long been a
haven for the money launder-
ing of profits from narcotic's
activities due to its close pro-
ximity to the Caribbean,
according to the IRS.
To combat the flow of
untaxed money, the Examina-
tion Division of the Ft. Lauder-
dale District of the IRS is
increasing compliance checks
on secondary financial institu-
tions. The Treasury Depart-
ment authorizes the IRS to
perform compliance checks
under Title:-,, of the U.S. Code
to ensure the filing of Cur-
rency Transaction Reports
(CRT)s. A CTR is required to
be filed on Form 4789 when
cash or negotiable instruments
in the amount of $10,000 or
more is received.
In prior years, financial
institutions required to comply
included banks, savings and
loan associations, brokers or
dealers in securities, credit
unions, and similar type busi-
nesses. Also included are other
nonbank institutions not regu-
lated by a Federal banking
agency handling currency over
$10,000.
The Anti-Drug Act of 1988
Technical Corrections Act
made changes to the reporting
policies under Title 31. With
the new legislation, new busi-
ness entities have been added
to those required to file. They
include those business
engaged in vehicle sales
including cars, planes and
boats.
political stripes are now optim-
istic that the new president
will have good relations with
the Jewish community, Elan
Steinberg, WJC's executive
director, said in a telephone
interview from Sao Paulo.
Menem said he was "deter-
mined to have excellent rela-
tions with the Jewish commun-
ity, both within Argentina and
abroad, as well as with Israel,"
Steinberg reported.
He said the Argentine presi-
dent greeted Bronfman with
"Shalom" and spoke of the
"commonality of the Jewish
and Syrian refugee experi-
ence."
Menem is the son of Syrian
refugees who settled in Argen-
tina. Born a Moslem, he con-
verted to Catholicism, some
say to comply with an Argen-
tine law that requires the pres-
ident to be a Roman Catholic.
Argentina is faced with a
devastating rate of inflation
that is rising geometrically by
200 percent per month. As a
result, aliyah is up considera-
bly, although figures previ-
ously reported were exagger-
ated, Steinberg said.
The matter was discussed at
a private meeting with Israeli
Ambassador Efraim Tari and
in a meeting with the DAI A
Argentine Jewry's representa-
tive body.
This past year, Tari said,
4,000 Argentine Jews moved
to Israel, compared to 1,200
last year.

Israeli Ruling On Demolition
Praised In U.S.
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The United States had praise
for an Israeli court ruling ban-
ning the Israel Defense Force
from demolishing the homes of
Palestinians involved in
violent activities until they
have an opportunity to appeal.
Israel's High Court of Jus-
tice instructed security forces
Sunday to cease the demolition
of homes in the administered
territories before their owners
are given the opportunity to
plead their cases in court.
The only exception to this
limitation, the court ruled,
would be in cases of "urgent
operational needs."
"We are pleased to see any
action which strengthens due
process for Palestinians in the
occupied territories," State
Department deputy spokes-
man Richard Boucher said
Monday.
In New York, Sholom
Comay, president of the Amer-
ican Jewish Committee, also
welcomed the Israeli court rul-
ing. It "once again demon-
strates Israel's fundamental
democratic nature, in which
the principles of due process
and the independence of the
judiciary are maintained," he
said.
Demolishing the homes of
Palestinians suspected of per-
petrating security offenses has
long been used by the Israeli
army as a punitive measure
and deterrent.
Since the Palestinian upris-
ing began nearly 20 months
ago, the Israeli army has
demolished or bulldozed 230
homes in the West Bank and
Gaza Strip. Another 102 have
been sealed off with bricks and
concrete, according to army
statistics quoted by The New
York Times.
The Association for Civil
Rights in Israel challenged this
practice in court last year,
after the army blew up 14
Palestinian homes in the West
Bank village of Beita. The
action was a response to the
killing of 15-year-old Tirza
Porat, who was among a group
of Jewish teen-agers to hike
through the Arab village on
April 6, 1988.
An army investigation later
determined that Porat was kil-
led by a bullet accidentally
fired from the gun of a Jewish
man who escorted the group.
As a result, the army agreed to
rebuild some of the homes in
Beita.

Owners are now guaranteed the right of appeal before Israeli army destroys homes in territories.
Israeli-Palestinian Contacts Spark Death Threats
Bj GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Palestinians and Israelis have
come under fire for their meet-
ings with one another, unde-
rlining the obstacles that await
any future negotiations on a
more formal basis.
The Likud Knesset faction
announced that it would take
legislative steps enabling
Prime Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir to fire Deputy Finance
Minister Yossi Beilin for his
contacts with supporters of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization.
In addition to previous con-
tacts with West Bank Palestin-
ian leaders, Beilin organized a
meeting between dovish mem-
bers of the Labor Party and
Palestinian leader Faisal Hus-
seini.
Likud charged that beyond
such meetings, Beilin is
actually serving as Vice Prem-
ier Shimon Peres' envoy to the
PLO.
Earlier this week, a Palestin-
ian leader said he would not be
intimidated by the death
threats he has received from
Palestinian radicals who
oppose his taking part recently
in talks with Shamir.
Graffiti smeared on street
walls in Ramallah threatened
lawyer Jamil Tarifi with death
for his contacts with Israeli
leaders. One, signed by the
Popular Front for the Libera-
tion of Palestine, warned that
"the bullet which reached
Zafer al-Masri will reach you
as well."
Masri was the Israeli-
appointed mayor of Nablus
who was murdered three years
ago by a member of the Abu
Nidal terrorist group for coop-
erating with the Israeli author-
ities.
Like Masri, Tarifi is being
targeted by PLO splinter
groups, even though the main-
stream PLO leadership has
approved his actions.
According to a report
in Ma'ariv, Tarifi met with
PLO leader Yasir Arafat at
the end of last month in Cairo
and received his permission to
meet with Shamir.
Although Tarifi said he took
part in meetings with Shamir
only in a private capacity, he
was seen as a well-known sup-
porter of Arafat's AI Fatah
faction, who would be unlikely
to move without PLO
approval.
The Tarifi meeting was
debated in a session of the
Knesset Foreign Affairs and
Defense Committee. Haggai
Meirom of Labor asked
whether by meeting so identif-
iable a PLO supporter as Tarifi
Shamir had given legitimacy
to negotiations with the PLO.
"Personalities in the terri-
tories who regard the estab-
lishment of such a state as the
final result of the political initi-
ative are no partners for a
dialogue with me," he said.
Talk of a Palestinian state by
Husseini is what angered
Likud members after the
Palestinian leader's meeting
with Labor's dovish Mashov
faction.

Conservative Zionists See End
To Orthodox Monopoly
By BEN GALLOB
NEW YORK (JTA) The
president of Mercaz, the move-
ment for Conservative Zion-
ism, predicts that in five years
there will be official recogni-
tion of Conservative Judaism
and its institutions including
its rabbinate in Israel.
Goldie Kweller of New York
cited a number of develop-
ments in recent years in sup-
port of her prediction, in an
interview with the Jewish Tel-
egraphic Agency.
A former president of the
Women's League for Conser-
vative Judaism, Kweller said
that the movement in Israel is
called Masorti Judaism, and
that while she is a member of
the boards of both Mercaz and
Masorti, the organizations are
independent.
She described Mercaz as a
membership organization and
Masorti as an administrative
agency. Masorti directs the
institutions of Conservative
Judaism in Israel a kibbutz,
a rabbinical school, 43 Conser-
vative synagogues, youth
groups, camps and educational
activities while one of the
main goals of Mercaz, which
has 25,000 members in the
United States, is to build its
membership. Members are
then encouraged to contribute
to a Masorti Foundation in the
United States.
Kweller told JTA that there
are two paths by which Con-
servative Judaism hopes to
obtain official recognition of
not only its rabbis but also its
institutions. Heretofore, rab-
binical functions have been run
by the Orthodox rabbinate,
which operates on government
funds.
She said one path is to
expand the Mercaz movement.
There are now three countries
in which there is such a move-
ment the United States,
Canada and Chile.
Kweller said she hopes
before the end of her four-year
term as president to bring
about a Brit Olami, a world
movement of Mercaz affiliates
which she hopes will include
Argentina, Britain and Swe-
den. The goal is to enlarge the
role of Mercaz in the World
Zionist Organization and the
Jewish Agency.
She said Mercaz has already
scored results via that path
it had the third largest U.S.
delegation at the 31st World
Zionist Congress in Jerusalem
in December 1987.
In response to that mandate,
she said, the congress adopted
a resolution ordering that
Diaspora Jewish funds allo-
cated to the WZO education
department be distributed to
three "streams" in Israel -
Orthodox, Conservative and
Reform instead of only to
the Orthodox educational insti-
tutions.
Kweller reported there are
15,000 congregants in the
Masorti synagogues, but con-
ceded that only 10 percent
were Israelis. She contended,
however, that this was not a
true measure of Israeli inter-
est in Conservative Judaism.
The other path toward equal
footing is via legislation, which
Kweller hopes will bring about
a fundamental change in the
structure of government in
Israel.
She cited a bill which has
received its first reading in the
Knesset, which would replace
the present electoral system of
votes by party slate with a
system by which voters cast
ballots for individuals.
The Israeli parliamentary
system grants great power to
parties as small as one Knesset
member, which has helped the
Orthodox parties to dominate
religious aspects of life in
Israel.
Asked why she believed that
the electoral reform measure
would not be subverted by the
Orthodox parties, Kweller
replied, "my feeling is that the
Knesset, which firmly believes
Israel has to keep in step with
the rest of the Western world,
understands that the present
system is not workable."
She said a system of laws
must be instituted in Israel
which gives legitimacy to all
Jews who graduate as rabbis
from halachically acceptable
seminaries, making them qual-
ified to perform all functions of
a Jewish spiritual leader.
Reform Judaism: Wisdom To Change
Continued from Page 5
insistence on the full participa-
tion of women in religious life.
By empowering women within
Judaism, Reform has brought
new creative energy to the
Jewish people and redoubled
its future leadership sources.
Social activism loyalty to
the prophetic spirit of Judaism
- is still another pillar of
Reform's communal strength.
It has assured us of relevance
and wholeness in our changing
and fractured world.
"Outreach" represents prob-
ably the most important
source of Reform Judaism's
current burgeoning. Rather
than cloaking itself in an exclu-
sive chosenness, Reform has
warmly embraced those who
would choose it. In this realm,
Reform's accomplishments
have been illuminating. It has
transformed American
Jewry's mindscape. The sub-
ject of intermarriage is no lon-
ger taboo, and the concept of
outreach, even conversionary
outreach, is no longer a heresy
within the American Jewish
community. Reform has taken
the discussion of intermarri-
age out of the house of mourn-
ing and into the house of study
- indeed, into the sanctuary
itself. Without condoning
intermarriage, we have recog-
nized its reality and have
begun to grapple with it.
We live in a world of inces-
sant change that quickly sup-
plants the deeds of yesterday
with the needs of tomorrow.
Thus, while Reform's statisti-
cal growth can well excite our
hopes and ambitions, we know
that too many of our congreg-
ants do not perceive Judaism
as a serious religious enter-
prise as an approach to the
world that makes demands on
its adherents. So we must find
newer ways to add meaning to
labels and substance to form.
If our dynamic social action
agenda has kept the movement
relevant and dynamic, we
must refuel that dynamism so
that we will be able to respond
to those many great moral
issues that will continue to
press upon us. And we must
extend that dynamism to
Israel and help catalyze the
process of peace.

If our outreach effort suc-
cessfully enfolded the inter-
married, let us muster the
strength and wisdom to extend
our embrace to the many
others who are ignored by our
community, excluded possibly
by our own prejudices. Let us
once and for all declare our-
selves rabbis for all Jews at
every moment of life, not only
heterosexual Jews but gay
Jews and not only at their
funerals when they die of
AIDS.
Above all, if we proudly pro-
claim that our Judaism is an
ever-evolving faith, that the
concept of change embodies
our self-definition, let us not be
frightened by those who coun-
sel us to retreat from some of
our recent innovations lest we
break our Jewish unity. This
alarm was sounded at every
stage of our evolution as a
movement within Judaism,
and always proved false.
Let us not be snared by the
delusion that a retreat on such
issues as patrilineality will
gain us acceptance by the
more traditionally inclined in
Israel or anywhere else. Only
total surrender will have such
an effect.

In Jewish Population
Florida Regains
Third Place
In U.S.
By ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK, (JTA) -
American Jews are flocking to
the Sunbelt and the West
Coast, according to updated
population estimates con-
tained in the 1989 American
Jewish Year Book, published
this week by the American
Jewish Committee and the
Jewish Publication Society.
Significant increases in 1988
in the Jewish populations of
such communities as San
Diego and the state of Florida
were matched by Jewish popu-
lation losses of 10 percent or
more in many communities in
the Northeast and Midwest.
Florida, with 596,100 Jews
comprising 5.1 percent of the
state's population, regained
the number three spot among
the states with the highest
concentration of Jews, behind
New York and New Jersey and
ahead of Massachusetts, Mary-
land and the District of Colum-
bia.
Total Jewish population of
the United States in 1988 was
estimated at 5,935,000,
according to the year book.
That figure is down slightly
from 1987, but still represents
2.5 percent of the overall U.S.
population.
The population findings are
contained in an article by
researchers at the North
American Jewish Data Bank in
New York.
Their findings relied primar-
ily on studies by local Jewish
community federations, but
they warn that population esti-
mating is "not an exact sci-
ence." Numbers may be
adjusted from year to year, for
instance, without there having
been a demographic change in
a community.
For the latest study, the
researchers have adjusted for
such reasons as the number of
non-Jewish spouses or children
in a household and the number
of part-time residents in a
community.
The latter factor is especially
important in the Sunbelt, they
year-round residents is often
over-counted.
But even when the figures
are adjusted for the so-called
"snowbirds" who summer in
the North, the figures on the
migration of Jews to the South
and West are revealing:
- In the San Diego metropol-
itan area, the Jewish popula-
tion estimate increased by
33,000 to a total of 70,000
between 1987 and 1988, an 89
percent gain.
- Florida's Jewish popula-
tion went up by nearly 47,000
between 1987 and 1988, repre-
senting an 8.5 percent jump.
The Florida cities with the
most significant increases are
Greater Fort Lauderdale, up
31,000 to a total Jewish popu-
lation of 116,000, and Greater
Orlando, up 3,000 to 18,000.
- Ten Northeastern and Mid-
western communities report
Jewish population declines of
at least 10 percent between
1987 and 1988. The largest
absolute decline by state
occurred in New York, with a
loss of more than 47,000 Jews.
Cleveland had a loss of 5,000
Jews, bringing its Jewish pop-
ulation estimate down to
65,000, the largest numerical
decrease for a local commun-
ity.
Soviet Jewry Rep. Dante B. Fascell of Florida met recently
with Soviet Refusenik Judith Lurie to discuss the status of Jews
in the Soviet Union. Lurie, who, with her husband, Emmanuel,
has been denied an exit visa for IS years, was granted a
temporary visa to visit her mother, daughter and grandchild m
Israel She was brought to the United States by B nax B nth to
keep the cause of Soviet Jewry alive for those who remain in spite
of some relaxation of emigration m recent years.

Soviet Students
Arrive In Israel
TEL AVIV (JTA) Eight young Jewish university
graduates from the Soviet Union arrived in Israel for a stay
on a kibbutz.
They are the first to participated in the "Russian
Orange" project, which is being jointly sponsored by the
Mapam-affiliated Kibbutz Artzi, the Jewish Agency and the
Foreign Ministry.
Students will attend a special Hebrew-language ulpan set
up for them at Kibbutz Ein Dor for 10 to 12 weeks, and will
also work half a day on the kibbutz.
NCSJ Seeks Help On
Long-Term Refuseniks
NEW YORK, (JTA) The head of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry has asked Secretary of State
James Baker to invoke U.S. help to resolve the issue of
long-term refuseniks.
Shoshana Cardin, chairwoman of the National Confer-
ence, wrote a letter to Baker citing Soviet failure to allow
long-term refuseniks to emigrate, and said Soviet perform-
ance in the refusenik matter should be a factor in United
States participation in a human rights conference in
Moscow in 1991.
Can Israel Try A Palestinian Fairly?
By ALLISON KAPLAN
NEW YORK, (JTA) Issue of whether a suspected
Palestinian terrorist can receive a fair trial in Israel has
taken center stage in a federal court in Brooklyn.
Mahmoud El-Abed Ahmad, a naturalized American
citizen who was born in the West Bank city of Ramallah,
has been charged in Israel with taking part in an attack on
an Egged bus in the West Bank in 1986, an attack which
left the bus driver dead and a passenger wounded.
The U.S. government has been seeking Ahmad's extradi-
tion to Israel for more than two years, to face a string of
charges including murder.
Court sources say a final ruling on the appeal now before
Judge Weinstein is not expected until late September,
following oral arguments and the submission of legal
briefs.
If Weinstein rules in the government's favor and upholds
the extradition order. Ahmad has the right to appeal the
case to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and
potentially, to the Supreme Court.
WZO-AS Protests
NEW YORK The World Zionist Organization-
American Section has protested Michelin's latest map of
the Mideast, which omits the entire State of Israel and lists
Israel s major cities such as Jerusalem, Tel Aviv Haifa
and the entire West Bank as being part of the Hashemite
Kingdom of Jordan.
Xicor Of Calif. To Invest $267 Million
An American semiconductor company will invest $267
million to set up a plant in Israel for the production of
memory- microchips.
Gabriel Levy, Israel's economic minister to North Amer-
ica, said Xicor, Inc. of Milpitas, Calif., will employ 1,700
people when the facility reaches full capacity, which is
expected to take place during the next decade. While the
site of the Xicor plant has not yet been announced, Levy
said it would be either in the far north or far south of the
country, known collectively as "Zone A." Location in this
area makes the factory eligible for maximum tax conces-
sions and other incentives offered by the Israeli govern-
ment to foreign investors.
The plant will produce an advanced computer memory
chip, known as EEPROM, that can retain memory content
without power and that can be altered remotely or through
a keyboard without physical removal from the system as
required with other chips.
Most of the output of the Israeli-based plant will be
exported to Europe, the Far East and the U.S.
Soviet Official To Israel?
TEL AVIV (JTA) A high-level Soviet official will soon
visit Israel, according to Yediot Aharonofs recently
appointed Moscow correspondent, Amnon Kapelyuk.
According to a reliable source, an Israel trip is planned
tor Gennadi Terrasov, who was recently appointed per-
sonal adviser to Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevard-
nadze on the subject of the Middle East and the Israeli-
Arab conflict.
These Israelis Are Not
Clowning Around
By ANDREW SILOW CARROLL
NEW YORK, (JTA) Can
two people learn to stop hating
each other long enough to live
together, not only in peace,
but in something resembling
harmony?
It's a question being asked
often in Israel nowadays, but
seldom as painlessly or
pointedly as in a 40-minute
juggling, mime and musical
performance by two classically
trained circus clowns.
"Sholem the Golem" is the
creation of Raphael Colb and
Jill Gronner, American immi-
grants who are the first gra-
duates of the Ringling Bros,
and Barnum & Bailey Circus
Clown College to work as pro-
fessional clowns in Israel.
The first performance by
their "Clown Theater" is a
reworking of a classic Jewish
monster story, which they set
not in Poland but in what could
be backstage at Ringling Bros.
Gronner, 26, plays the Dr.
Frankenstein part, creating a
monster from dust to be her
servant. Colb, 39, plays the
hapless Golem, who rebels
against his creator.
The piece begins as an angry
power struggle between mons-
ter and master, but ends in a
happy display of whirling uni-
cycles, tinkling instruments
and the mutual juggling of
blue, green, red and white
rubber balls.
Colb calls it "a show about
masters and servants, and the
preferability of cooperation in
the face of winning."
Colb and Gronner have pre-
sented their parable to "chil-
dren of all ages" from Metul-
lah in the north to Eilat in the
south. Partners since October,
they have played the Haifa
Children's Festival, the Israel
Festival in Jerusalem and the
Misgav Festival of Nature and
Music in the Galilee.
They have also performed
for Arab children, visiting
Arab schools in Jerusalem
under the auspices of the Jeru-
salem Foundation.
But wherever they have
played, there are some univer-
sal responses to the action on
stage.
"The littlest kids often don't
laugh at all," Colb said in a
telephone interview from his
family's home in upstate New
York. "They sit mesmerized,
and then don't talk about any-
thing else for three weeks. The
older kids enjoy the rebellion
against authority figures. And
the adults enjoy the artistry
and the political message."
Artistry and politics may not
always be easy to convey
under white greasepaint and
wide, red grins, but Colb and
Gronner take their clowning
seriously.
"We're not heavy-handed,"
said Colb. "We say in Hebrew,
'Those who understand wilj
understand.' We feel that our
message is more urgent the
less people are open to cooper-
ating and playing with each
other.
"The response we get from
our audiences is the feeling
that we're not only making
them laugh, but making them
think, and that what we're
doing is worthwhile."
Israel Pledges To Absorb
Soviet Immigrants
JERUSALEM (JTA) Local city councils in Israel have
pledged to welcome into their individual communities a
fixed number of the half-million Soviet immigrants
expected to arrive here in the next few years.
The pledges ranged from cities such as Ashkelon, which
said it would accept 2,000 over the next five years, to
smaller towns such as Yehud, which committed to absorb-
ing 200 refugees.

Kiev Rabbi
Fights Assimilation
Friday, August 4, 1989/The Jewish Floridian Page 11
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
A Russian mechanic and
engineer has been working as
a rabbi in the city of Kiev for
the past two years, a sign that
religious freedom is slowly
growing under the Soviet
Union's policy of glasnot.
Isaac Foocks, the chief rabbi
of Kiev, told The Jewish Flor-
idian during his recent visit to
Miami Beach that he is tin-
only rabbi of the only syna-
gogue in Kiev, a city of three
million people including
approximately 200,000 Jews.
Foocks explained that there
had been no rabbi in Kiev
when the Jewish community
sent him to Moscow and
Budapest nine years ago for
rabbinical training. He said the
selection was based on his
being only one of two younger
members of the congregation
and the most learned; his par-
ents spoke Yiddish and his
grandfather had been a shochet
in Poland. He is the first mem-
ber of his family to become a
rabbi.
"I will try to do the best I
can to get the people to have a
basic feeling of Jewishness,"
Foocks said, speaking through
a translator at the Shore Club
Hotel.
Despite the large number of
Jews in Kiev, Foocks said only
about 100 go to the synagogue
for the Sabbath. Assimilation
is the main reason he gives for
low attendance.
His congregation is Conser-
vative, but about 20 of the
families who are members are
Orthodox. The synagogue
where he holds daily services
has been around from the time
of Czar Peter 1 in the 1700s.
During World War II, the syn-
agogue had been used as a
Rabbi Isaac Foocks
stable for horses. Several syn-
agogues in Kiev were dest-
royed during the war, but the
few that remained have been
converted for uses such as
movie theaters, Foocks said.
There are no kosher bakeries
or butcher shops in Kiev,
Foocks said, but there is a
shochet who makes kosher
chicken available.
The davening, or prayer, is
done in Hebrew and Foocks
now devotes his full time to
work as a rahbi in the com-
munity. One project he has
initiated is matzah baking to
supply the community with
matzah for Passover.
Foocks maintains that there
aren't many pressures against
residents in his area who want
to practice Judaism; but he
says while there may not be
major government interfer-
ence, there simply isn't any
great desire among Jewish
residents in his community to
identify Jewishly.

At Hadassah-Hebrew U. Medical Center
Steins Endow Geriatric Task Force
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Miami Beach philanthropists
Bess and Louis Stein have
made a major pledge to endow
a fund establishing a geriatric
task force at the Hadassah-
Hebrew University Medical
Center in Jerusalem.
The Steins' most recent don-
ation made them members of
Shomrei Machar-Guardians of
Tomorrow, an organization for
those whose gifts to Hadassah
have reached $1 million.
The new gift will create the
Bess and Lou Stein Geriatric
Endowment Fund. The inter-
est from the fund will be used
to establish the task force, said
Barbara Tirschwell, national
major gifts chair of Hadassah.
The gift was announced to
more than 2,000 men and
women attending the 75th
annual Hadassah convention in
Atlanta. One of the Stein's
grandchildren who lives in
Atlanta attended the banquet
where news of the pledge was
greeted enthusiastically.
Israel, as are other western
countries, is faced with an
increasing proportion of senior
citizens, and Hadassah Hospi-
tal has a growing number of
elderly patients. Medical pro-
cedures including major car-
diac surgery which only sev-
eral years ago would not have
been performed on elderly
patients are now common-
place.
These patients are best
served in the department
related to their illness rather
than grouping them in a geria-
tric department, according to
Tirschwell.
A task force will be com-
prised of a team of six profes-
sionals, including specially
trained nurses, a social worker
and physical therapist, who
will travel from department to
department to provide special
services.
'We have not been able to do
this on our own, so the Stein's
donation has enabled us to
move ahead in a very signifi-
cant way,' Tirschwell said.
Stein, 83, who founded the
Stein Gerotological Institute
at the Miami Home and Hospi-
tal for the Aged, made the gift
through Professor Shmuel
Penchas, director general of
Hadassah Medical Organiza-
tion.
'It only furthers our desire
to help the elderly see a little
sunshine in the twilight years
of their life,' Stein said.
Lou and Bess Stein became
permanent residents of Miami
Beach in 1975. Originally from
New Jersey, where he prac-
ticed law for 27 years, Stein
moved to Philadelphia when he
became president of Food Fair
stores. He retired in 1971.
Stein is vice-president of the
board at MJHHA and sits on
the international board of
Technion, where he estab-
lished the Stein Institute on
Bess and Lou Stein
Food Technology. He is a trus-
tee of Fordham University's
law school, where he estab-
lished a chair in legal ethics
and of Drexel University in
Philadelphia.
He also is a trustee of the
Playwright Creates Magic
With "Carousel Horse"
Jewish Theological Seminary,
where he is active in the Fink-
lestein Institute on Ethics. The
Steins are members of Temple
Emanu-El, where Lou Stein is
a vice president.

Phyllis Barash leads a double
life.
During the day, she is an
administrative assistant at a
Miami commodities firm. At
night she enters a children's
fantasyland as a playwright
who makes sheepdogs dance
and wooden horses come to
life.
She can make the beauty and
the discipline of ballet interest-
ing enough to capture the
imagination of children and
the rough-and-tumble carnival
life soften to a love story on a
carousel.
Barash was a painter, pho-
tographer, writer and lyricist
when she took a playwriting
course at the Coconut Grove
Playhouse two years ago.
"I think an artist can branch
out in other mediums because
you have that way of looking at
life. You can jump from pho-
tography to painting to writ-
ing to music. They all over-
lap," she explains.
Her teacher, Blake Leach,
told Barash that her first play
would be produced within a
year. He was right.
Called "The Sheepdog that
Danced Ballet," Barash used
her one-time pet as the basis
for her story: a dog who
needed obedience training and
igot very bored when he was
roing around in circles in obe-
lience class. He heard ballet
Ausic in the next classroom
a.Vd he wanted to learn dance
ballet.
She wrote the story in the
form of a play, adding lyrics
for seven original songs com-
Ph yllis Barashs second play. "The Carousel Horse." premiered
July 29 in Boca Raton.
posed by Hallandale musician
Barry Butler and sent it out to
a few theaters.
Dr. William A. Peterson,
who founded the Little Palm
Theater 11 years ago in Boca
Raton, was on the receiving
end. He liked the play so much
that he decided to produce the
second play Barash wrote.
"The Carousel Horse" prem-
iered Saturday, July 29, at the
Royal Palm Dinner Theater
and will run every Saturday
through Sept. 2.
"It's about an old man
named Antonio whose profes-
sion has been to carve carousel
horses," Peterson says. "This
would be his last one because
he's old and his eyesight is
failing, so he gives it a little
magic."
That magic materializes
when the horse is 7 years old.
It evolves around a love story
between the wooden horse and
a live female horse who ran
away from home to be with
him.
Barash says she was inspired
to write her latest play when
she visited a traveling carnival
that comes to Miami each win-
ter.
"I love carousel horses and
that was the beginning of it.
And last year I went to
Austria and saw the Lippinzar
horses, which helped develop
the main character, a horse
that comes to life with special
magic."
But what is a love story
without pain?
When the carousel horse
comes to life, he couldn't bear
to leave his wooden friends on
the carousel. So the live horse
herself becomes a part of the
carousel.
Enter the elements of
money, greed and near-
tragedy before the storybook
happy ending: The park owner
wants to get rid of the old
carousel and get a shiny new
Comet Express ride. Mean-
while, the carousel operator
falls in love with the woman
who owns the runaway horse.
She's wealthy, buys the whole
amusement park, and fires the
futuristic park owner saving
the carousel.
Although her daytime job is
in a "terribly pressured" envi-
ronment, Barash has found a
balance.
"The one thing that you do
when you have to earn money
is work at a job. but the other
part of you that has creativity
and joy finds release in some
artistic outlet," she says.
A native of Brooklyn, Bar-
ash moved to Miami seven
years ago to be closer to her
family here. She had gra-
duated from the Fashion Insti-
tute of Technology in New
York, where she studied tex-
tile design.
If she has her way, she will
work in a creative field full-
time. Right now, theater has
opened up "a whole new
world," and she is already
thinking of her next play,
which would also be designed
for children.
"I love to work for children
because I feel there's so much
negativity in children's lives
these days. We live in such a
fast world. I just want to be
able to bring back some charm
and, some love in what-
ever I write."

Young Rabbi Conserves Tradition
At Temple Menorah
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
A 30-year-old Miami Beach-
ired Orthodox rabbi has
become spiritual leader of
Temple Menorah, one of the
pity's oldest Conservative con-
regations. It had been led for
jiearly four decades by Rabbi
layer Abramowitz.
Rabbi Eliot Pearlson left
Isheville, N.C., where he was
fepiritual leader of the 125-
family Congregation Beth
Israel and moved to Miami
ieach with his wife, the for-
ier Judith Averback and their
three children. He assumed his
lew pulpit July 15 when Abra-
lowitz became rabbi emeri-
tus.
Pearlson has returned to the
community where he first
loved with his family from
Satavia, New York, at age
I four, and to the temple where
he served as director of educa-
tion and community services
[from 1984-86.
'Rabbi Abramowitz and
[Temple Menorah are being
very far-sighted in terms of
demography," Pearlson told
The Jewish Floridian in an
interview. "They've deter-
mined who is moving back to
Miami Beach, what kind of
rabbi those people need, and
what kind of rabbinic leader-
ship is necessary for the next
generation."
During interviews that took
place before his selection and
contract were approved at the
beginning of the year, Pearl-
son said the search committee
agreed with his plan to con-
tinue a "halachically centered
synagogue motivated to keep-
ing traditional Judaism."
Pearlson said he sees a need
to put the word "conserve"
back into Conservative
Judaism.
Rabbi Eliot Pearlson
"I don't water down
Judaism," said Pearlson. "I'm
dedicated to traditional
Judaism and observancy.
When it comes to religion,
that's what people want. The
fastest growing branch of
Judaism is Orthodoxy. It's
because when you dilute the
holiness and the spiritual
aspects out of Judaism, you're
only left with cultural and
social characteristics, which
isn't always enough to moti-
vate and maintain a vibrant
community."
Asked if Temple Menorah
would be transformed from a
Conservative synagogue to an
Orthodox congregation, Pearl-
son said Menorah "is already
right-wing."
"In the Conservative move-
ment today you have organs
played on Shabbat, female can-
tors, female rabbis and gener-
ally a very lax attitude toward
historic halacha. And that's
inconsistent with the motiva-
tion of the original founders of
Conservative Judaism. It was
to conserve the traditions and
Jewish law within a modern
framework."
At Menorah, women are not
called to the Torah, nor are
they counted in a minyan.
Pearlson said the question of
whether to add a mehitza or
division between men and
women at Menorah was also
discussed during his interview.
"I said I'd like for us to give
more alternatives for the
right-wing traditional Jews,"
Pearlson said.
"I've been exposed to maybe
20 Conservative congregations
in the last six years as a
teacher, educator, and all of
them are bending over back-
wards to express or give ave-
nues of religiosity for the left-
wing, calling women to the
Torab, and all the traditional
Jews have been alienated. And
where do traditional Jews who
don't want to lean to the left
go? So I'd like to afford an
opportunity for all the Jews in
Miami Beach who believe in
Jewish law, halacha, through a
historic perspective and a mod-
ern definition to feel comforta-
ble."
The new rabbi said he would
also like to develop Jewish
learning programs for physi-
cally and mentally handi-
capped members of the com-
munity. He is also considering
the possibility of learning sign
language. "Where do the hear-
ing impaired go to hear a
sermon, hear the Torah?" he
asked.
Pearlson calls himself a
"gestalt," a person made up of
many different pieces.
When he was about four,
Pearlson's parents, Benjamin
and Sylvia, left their dairy
farm in upstate New York,
moved to Miami Beach and
entered the hotel business. His
mother still lives in Miami
Beach, where the family has
many real estate holdings. His

ning for a seat on the Miami
Beach Citv Commission but
withdrew from the race after
his father's death last month.,
He attended the Rabbi Alex-
ander S. Gross Hebrew Acad-
emy of Greater Miami until he
was in the eighth grade and
then attended the Lubavitch
yeshiva in New York for his
ninth grade year. For his tenth
grade year he enrolled in
Mesivta yeshiva on Miami
Beach and then attended
Miami Beach Senior High
School for almost two years
before studying in Israel for
one year.
On returning, he went to
Yeshiva University and then
transferred to the University
of Florida, where he received a
degree in religion and bioche-
mistry. In Miami, he taught at
the Solomon Schechter Day
School and worked as a
teacher for the Central
Agency for Jewish Education.
He met his wife Judith through
CAJE, where she had been
supervisor of the Judaica High
School program.
Asked why he chose to work
in the Conservative move-
ment, Pearlson said, "I filled a
void. There was a tremendous
need for knowledgeable rabbis
who could instruct at a per-
sonal level.
"I think the era of the grand
rabbi is unfortunately over,"
he explained. "The large syna-
gogues played a very import-
ant part of American history.
(But) there's no way you can
bave three or four bar mitz-
vahs every Saturday and have
a close relationship with the
congregation. That's what
contributed to the breakup of
many of the large synagogues.
I think it's going to be the era
of the personalized rabbi, the
rabbi who is more localized."
Miami Beach has never had a
lack of great rabbinical leader-
ship and Pearlson agrees that
Rabbi Abramowitz leaves big
shoes to fill.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
. "Beyond the Jordan, in the landof.Woab, took Moses upon htm
to expound this law"
(Deut. 1,5)
DEVARIM
DEVARIM The first few verses introduce the entire book of
Deuteronomy, which contains Moses' address to the Israelites in
Transjordan after ihe defeat of the Amorites and Bashan. In this
speech Moses summarizes the Torah as a whole. He reviews the
causes that had led him to appoint judges and officials: "How can
I myself alone bear your cumbrance, and your burden, and your
strife? And I charged your judges at that time, saying: "Hear
the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between
a man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him. Ye shall
not respect persons in judgment; ye shall hear the small and the
great alike' (Deuteronomy 1.12-17).
Moses goes on to review the incident of the scouts sent to spy on
Canaan, and the consequences of their pessimistic report. He
reminds the Israelites how they had skirted Edom, Ammon, and
Moab; and mentions the peoples who had formerly inhabited
those regions. Finally, he recounts the story of the conquest of
Transjordan, and the partition of the area between the tribes of
Reuben, Gad, and half of the tribe of Manasseh.
(The recounting of the Weekly Portion of the Law is extracted and
based upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage," edited by
P. Wollman-Tsamir, published by Shengold. The volume is available
at 75 Maiden Lane, New York, NY. 10038.)

Customs For Tisha B'Av
Friday, August 4, 1989/The Jewish Floridian Page 17
Mourning Period Observances Vary
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
In 1989 in a modern syna-
Igogue in sophisticated Amer-
' ica, people will drive up and sit
on the floor or a low bench and
read the Book of Lamenta-
tions, which evokes the deep-
est levels of pain and anguish.
Many Jews throughout the
world, to various degrees, will
be observing a three-week per-
iod during which many cala-
mities and afflictions befell
Israel throughout the genera-
tions.
The 21-day period is from
the 17th of the Hebrew month
Tammuz (July 20 this year) to
Tisha B'Av, the ninth day of
Av, which this year falls on
August 10.
It is during this period that
the two Holy Temples the
i Bet HaMikdash were dest-
royed, first by the Babylonians
in BCE 586 and then by the
Romans in CE 70. Since then
the Holy Temple has never
been rebuilt and the site in
Jerusalem's Old City where it
once stood is now occupied by
an Arab mosque.
Only the retaining wall of
the Holy Temple still stands
and that wall, known as the
Western Wall, is where
hundreds of thousands of Jews
go each year to pray.
Jews from different back-
grounds, such as Ashkenazic
or Sephardic, may observe the
three-week period in different
{* ways. So too is there a differ-
' enee in the level of observance
of Orthodox, Conservative and
Reform Jews.
Some Orthodox rules conc-
erning the three weeks are: No
weddings or festivals; no new
clothing purchased or put on
for the first time; refrain from
listening to music or visiting
places of amusement or enter-
tainment.
And on the eve of Tisha
B'Av, and on the following
morning, the book of "Eicha"
Lamentations is read.
Both the 17th of Tammuz
and the ninth of Av are Ortho-
dox fast days.
Just as the level of observ-
ance is up to the individual,
different spiritual leaders have
varied interpretations of the
mourning period.
According to one ultra-
Orthodox rabbi, the period is
one of both mourning for the
past as well as mourning for
the present. And while it is a
time of mourning, Jews are
also taught that prolonged or
excessive mourning is not as
good as using the time for
reflection and commitment fol-
lowed by a renewed effort to
change.
For the very observant, the
three-week period is a solemn
time in which rejoicing is dim-
inished more than any other
time of the year. It is a period
of walking on eggshells, in
which Jews are advised to
avoid situations of danger such
as scheduling a court trial or
traveling for pleasure.

A conservative rabbi said the
tradition in his synagogue is
not to schedule weddings dur-
ing this period and to read
from Lamentations.
One spiritual leader of the
Reform movement told The
Jewish Floridian that he per-
sonally fasts on the ninth of
Av, but only "alludes" to the
days during his regular Sab-
bath sermons. "Tisha B'Av
was removed from the reform
calendar long ago, since the
Diaspora an<* dispersion are
seen as good," the rabbi said,
adding that the days are
observed in his synagogue's
summer camp programs.
Another Reform rabbi said
the Lamentations is usually
read in a congregant's home
for the small group who is
interested in that custom.
"Reform does not look to
rebuilding of the Temple or
reinstatement of sacrificial
cults as a major doctrine," the
rabbi said.
For those who do observe
the three weeks of mourning,
it is not simply a matter of
continuing to mourn for some-
thing that was destroyed
almost two thousand years
earlier. They see this as a time
to reflect on the fact that the
Holy Temple has still not been
rebuilt, and see that as being
possible only with the coming
of the Messiah.
And because they see the
Messianic times as a period in
which there will only be peace,
current times of drug abuse,
divorce, assimilation, criminal
activity and international hos-
tility are certainly reason to
despair.
But with that, they also
carry a message of hope: that
there is time to repent, time to
take inventory of one's life and
community, and time to deter-
mine what changes and com-
mitments must be made to
resolve for a better future.
Tragic events during this
period did not include only the*
destruction of the Holy Tem-
ple.
Tragic events of the 17th
day of Tammuz also include
the breaking of the tablets
with the Ten Commandments
by Moses when he saw the
Jews had turned to idol wor-
ship; the daily sacrifices at the
Temple were stopped; the wall
of Jerusalem was breached
and the city captured; Apust-
mas, captain of the occupation
forces, publicly burned the
Torah; and an idol was placed
in the Bet Hamikdash.
On Tisha B'Av, the first and
second temples were dest-
royed; the fortress of Bethar
was destroyed by the Romans,
and Bar Kochba's revolt for
liberation was crushed; the
city of Jerusalem was razed to
the ground and plowed over.
Tisha B'Av historically also
was the time when the Jewish
people left Egypt but did not
want to go to the Promised
Land and God declared on that
day the generation would per-
ish in the desert during the 40
years of wandering. Centuries
later, in 1492, Spain's Jewish
population was exiled and
driven out of the country.
Our rabbis teach us that, as
Maimonides said, the days of
mourning can be transformed
into days of joy. Jews are
taught that the Temple fell
because of baseless hatred,
jealousy, selfishness and con-
tentiousness among our people
and that by cultivating a
"baseless" unconditional love,
the spirit of giving, sharing
and caring, the bitterness can
become rejoicing.

Hostage Crisis Shakes U.S
Continued from Page 1
home in southern Lebanon.
The organization, which is
believed to be a front group for
the Islamic fundamentalist
Hezbollah, or Party of God,
threatened to kill another
American hostage, Joseph Cic-
ippio, if Israelis did not release
Obeid. The deadline was
extended.
After Higgins' death was
announced early Monday,
Bush cut short a two-day trip
to the West, and met Monday
night with his national security
advisers and then with mem-
bers of Congress.
He then issued a statement
late Monday night, which was
seen as implied criticism of
Israel.
"On Friday, I said that the
taking of any hostages was not
helpful to the Middle East
peace process," Bush said in
the statement. "The brutal
and tragic events of today
have underscored the validity
of that statement."
The president said that he
now wanted "to go beyond
that statement with an urgent
call for all, all parties who hold
hostages in the Middle East, to
release them forthwith as a
humanitarian gesture, to begin
to reverse the cycle of violence
in that region."
Fitzwater denied that the
Bush statement was aimed at
putting pressure on Israel.
'The statement last night
applies to all countries in the
region," he said. "The state-
ment speaks for itself."
In his statement Monday
night. Bush made clear that
the United States does not
support an Israeli proposal,
issued Monday before Higgins'
death was announced, that it
would trade Obeid and all Shi-
ite prisoners held by Israel if
the Shiites would free three
Israeli soldiers held in south-
ern Lebanon, as well as all
American and other civilian
hostages held there.
"Our firm opposition to
negotiating with hostage-
takers was further reinforced
in my discussions this evening
with the administration and
consultations with the con-
gressional leadership," Bush
said.
"We do not negotiate for the
release of hostages," Fit-
zwater reiterated Tuesday.
But he stressed that "Israel is
a sovereign nation. They have
a different policy with regard
to hostages than we have."
But Sen. Richard Lugar (R-
Ind.), a leading Republican on
the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, said the United
States should cooperate with
Israel in attempting such a
swap.
Miami Zionist to Head Na'amat
Continued from Page 1
oaby boom generation was
born when there already was a
Jewish state in existence and it
is taken more matter-of-factly
than viewed as a state that
was created through great
struggle.
"Jewish and Zionist organi-
zations must educate, must
teach young people in the Jew-
ish community the story of
Israel; not just ancient history
but the years of rebuilding the
state so they will have an
affinity for it as those who
came to the U.S. on waves of
pogroms in the early 1900s,"
Green said.
As president, Green says she
will have a many-faceted plat-
form.
In addition to goals to
expand the organization and
increase fundraising, Green
says, "We have to intensify
our work as a Zionist organiza-
tion through our American
affairs and Zionist affairs
department because I think
Israel is losing the public rela-
tions war, and it is a war.
"I think our members have
to have a dual goal to speak
out for the security and
growth of Israel and also
speak with equal intensity for
the kind of Jewish state which
was the dream of the foun-
ders."
More people need to visit
Israel on missions that will
take them to lesser-known
areas and not just larger well-
known cities, to give members
a better feel for the country.
Na'amat, USA raises "a few
million" annually to support
its projects in Israel, Green
says. Besides daycare and
vocational training centers,
the organization also supports
legal aid for women, a project
for single-parent families and
a counseling center for the
prevention of violence in the
family.
Na'amat has come out with a
pro-choice position, which also
reflects Green's personal posi-
tion. "That doesn't mean we
are for or against abortion,"
she says, "but we are for the
right of a woman to make the
choice according to her life and
the circumstances. You cannot
legislate the lives of other peo-
ple in a free society."
Na'amat is planning a pro-
choice demonstration in Chi-
cago's Grant Park during its
convention next week.
In Israel, Green
says Na'amat is seeking to
have divorces acceptable in a
secular court. "There are
women who have been trying
to get divorces for 18 years
and they've been held hostage
by their husbands. Under reli-
gious law, the man has the
right to give the get and if the
man refuses the woman cannot
get a religious divorce."
Women in Israel are also
fighting for equal pay and
rights at the workplace.
"Usually in jobs, it's not the
last hired, first fired. It's
usually the women (who go)
when an enterprise has to cut
back."
One of Na'amat's most
famous members was the late
Israel Prime Minister Golda
Meir. Meir was Na'amat's
national executive secretary
from 1932 to 1934. Meir's
daughter, Sarah Rabhadi, is
scheduled to attend next
week's Na'amat convention.
Green lives in Coral Gables
with her husband. They have
two grown children. She is
currently chairman of the
board of the American Zionist
Federation in South Florida
and was president of the Jew-
ish Historical Society. She
serves on the city of Miami
Beach mayor's Committee on
Human Resources and on the
city of Miami's Beautification
Committee.
Lugar and Sen. Christopher
Dodd (D-Conn.), appearing
Monday night on the Public
Broadcasting System's "Mac-
Neill/Lehrer Newshour," said
it would be illogical to attri-
bute Higgins' death to the
Israeli seizure of Obeid.
Dodd said that blaming
Israel for the tragedy would
only accomplish what the ter-
rorists who kidnapped the
Americans set out to do in the
first place: create divisions
between Israel and the United
States.
L. Paul Bremer, a State
Department counterterrorism
expert during the Reagan
administration, echoed these
remarks. "It was not the
United States that caused the
killing. It was not Israel. It
was not the United Nations."
he said. Rather it was a terror-
ist group supported by a coun-
try like Iran.
"We cannot allow our fore-
ign policy to be held hostage to
terrorists," Bremer stressed.
"That means if we find out
who is responsible, we have to
act not be distracted into
holding other people responsi-
ble like the U.N. or Israel."
The most public criticism of
Israel came from Senate
Minority Leader Robert Dole
(R-Kan), who said Monday on
the Senate floor that Israel
should have notified the
United States before taking
action that might endanger
Americans.
Dole took the floor again
Tuesday to stress that Israel
and the United States are on
the same side.
But he again said, "I cannot
condone, as a thinking person,
how any government ours,
the Israeli government or any
other civilized government
could embark on this unilat-
eral, free- lancing course, with-
out regard to the effect on
innocent citizens of other
friendly countries, without
regard to our common front
against terrorism."
Others in Congress sup-
ported Israel. Rep. Howard
Berman (D- Calif.) called
Dole's remarks "a contempti-
ble slander."
"It must be said loudly,
clearly and unequivocally that
there is only one party respon-
sible for the murder of Col.
Higgins, and that is his Shiite
Moslem captors," he said Mon-
day.
"Let us put the blame where
it belongs: on the outrageous
terrorists, and even, yes, on
some of the Western powers
that are willing to countenance
them," said Rep. Charles
Schumer (D- N.Y.).
Rep. Stephen Solarz (D-
N.Y.) said in a New York
television appearance that
"it's fortunate that the
Israelis, unlike some Ameri-
cans, recognize that you don't
deal with terrorists by sending
them Bibles and birthday
cakes" a reference to an
attempt by some Reagan
administration officials to
curry favor with the leaders of
Iran.
Israel's ambassador to
Washington, Moshe Arad, in
appearances on television, said
Israel apprehended Obeid in
"hot pursuit" to demonstrate
that terrorists cannot hide
from Israel and in an effort to
gain the release of hostages.
"We have to indicate our
determination not to give in to
blackmail," Arad said.
He said the fight against
terrorism can be successful
"only if we carry on united,
coordinated efforts" that
include Israel, the United
States and other countries. He
said until then, no Americans
will be safe, whether hostages
or not.
Bill Restricting Contact
With PLO "Unconstitutional"
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON Legislation adopted by the Senate
last week will not change the way the United States
conducts its dialogue with the Palestine Liberation Organi-
zation, the State Department said.
Richard Boucher, the department's deputy spokesman,
said the Bush administration considers a Senate bill
barring U.S. contacts with members of the PLO who have
been involved in terrorist activities unconstitutional.
But the bill adopted "is far less offensive" than the
original measure proposed by Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C),
Boucher said.
Instead, the Senate adopted a substitute measure intro-
duced by Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell (D-
Maine) and Senate Minority Leader Robert Dole (R-Kan.).
It bars U.S. contacts with PLO officials the president
knows to have been involved in past acts of terrorism.

Israelis Suffer Rout By Saudis
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) It was
perhaps the worst defeat ever
suffered by Israel at the hands
of an Arab country. Luckily,
the lopsided battle took place
i on a baseball diamond.
In what was the first-ever
[sports encounter between
llsrael and Saudi Arabia, a
[group of 11-and 12-year-old
Saudi boys overwhelmed their
Israeli counterparts and
handed them a humiliating
defeat by a score of 30-0.
The players in the historic
match were taking part in an
international junior baseball
tournament, held annually at
the U.S. army base at Ram-
stenn Air Force Base near
Frankfurt.
This was the Israeli team's
first international baseball
tourney.
The Saudis, who are Euro-
pean and Middle East divi-
sional Little League champi-
ons, said they agreed to play
Israel against the wishes of
their government because
they feared that refusal would
mean the automatic loss of
their right to defend their title
this year.

Editor:
The press release from the
State of California on food and
pollution which you published
in a recent issue gives only a
part of the story. You and your
readers may be interested in
hearing the somewhat differ-
ent version presented by the
United Farmworkers of the
same and related issues. You
can address them at P.O. Box
I 302, Delano, California 93216.
The Union of American
Hebrew Congregations has a
position in support of the cause
of the farmworkers. The
claims of the state that it is not
unsafe to eat table grapes may
be technically correct, since
long-term effects of residues
of pesticide on food can not be
proved at this point but the
farm-workers still have reason
tu object to its use. They can
show that there have been
cancer deaths among workers
in the fields and their families,
as well as other ill effects from
chemical drift in the affected
neighborhoods.
Like many other states,
including Florida, California
has been negligent in general
of the rights of its farmwor-
kers, preferring to please the
large agribusiness owners,
who have a powerful lobby.
For the sake of human rights
and for our own health and
safety we should be at least
listening to the claims of the
people who do the actual work
of growing and harvesting our
foodstuffs.

At Plantation Fashion Mall
Lord & Taylor Chairman Opens 11th Florida Store
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Marshall Hilsberg has a new
multi-million dollar reason to
visit South Florida.
The 44-year-old chairman
and chief executive officer of
Lord & Taylor already had a
vacation home in Boca Pointe,
a sister in Fort Lauderdale and
mother in Pembroke Pines. He
was in town recently for the
newest addition to the upscale
department store's family, a
two-level, 100,000-square-foot
store in the Fashion Mall at
Plantation. It is the 11th Lord
& Taylor store in Florida, and
the 45th in the country.
Hilsberg said it is projected
to ring up $20 million in sales
over the next 24 months.
"This is a very unusual per-
iod for us of significant expan-
sion," Hilsberg said. "From
Plantation forward over the
next 12 months, we'll be open-
Marshall Hilsberg
ing 10 stores, then following
that we'll be opening five or
six a year. Today we are about
$1 billion in (annual) sales and
our objective is by 1995 to be a
$2 billion business."
Hilsberg, born in New Lon-
don, Conn, and raised in New
York City, where he now lives,
took over Lord & Taylor when
it was acquired by the May
Department Store Company in
1986. He had been with the
May Company for 16 years,
serving as president and CEO
of G. Fox & Company in Hart-
ford and executive vice presi-
dent of the Hecht Company in
Washington.
Hilsberg knew he wanted to
go into the retail business
while he was studying business
at Hunter College, and landed
a job after graduation as an
executive trainee at Abraham
& Strauss in Brooklyn. He
grew up through the merchan-
dising organization and
became head of his first store
in 1982. "i wasn't always
head of a $1 billion business,"
he noted. "It's a wonderful
store, very special, great tradi-
tion; we're the oldest specialty
store in the U.S., established
in 1826, and there certainly is
a cache the consumer feels
about us."
"Today's consumer is much
more driven to satisfying the
different needs. We have a
very distinctive lifestyle. And I
think the consumer is under a
great time factor, and is look-
ing for a confidence level so
that when he goes to a store,
he can find what he needs."
In terms of dealing with fru-
stration over the ever-
changing lengths of hemlines,
Hilsberg believes that "more
and more people are dressing
to what individually makes
them feel good and forming
more of what you can call their
own styles.
"We're not trying to be the
trendiest store in town," he
added. "What we're trying to
offer is fashion, value and good
customer service."
The store also maintains a
philosophy of community ser-
vice. Whenever a new store
opens, a benefit celebration is
held and the proceeds go to a
selected charity or organiza-
tion.
Last week, Hilsberg hosted a
lavish party for some 250
invited guests. Funds raised
will go to the Ralph J. Baud-
huin Oral School of Nova Uni-
versity, a school that provides
individualized learning for the
hearing impaired and for intel-
lectually capable children.
Hilsberg is the father of a
daughter, Stephanie, and a.
son, Andrew, who is planning
to attend Northwestern Uni-
versity this fall.
He has been honored by
Brandeis University and B'nai
B'rith for his efforts in foster-
ing opportunities for unde-
rprivileged youths and devel-
oping the talents of promising
young people in the business
community.

Richman Leads Primary
A Democratic party weak-
ened by a split along ethnic
lines was forced into a runoff
election between lawyer Ger-
ald Richman and former Miami
City Commissioner Rosario
Kennedy, while the Republi-
cans united to give state Sen.
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen a lands-
lide victory in last Tuesday's
primary elections to fill the
U.S. Congressional seat of the
late Congressman Claude Pep-
per.
The overwhelming support
for Ros-Lehtinen gave the
Cuban-American senator a
head start on her campaign to
capture the seat that had been
held by the Democratic Pepper
for 27 years.
Vice President Dan Quayle
was already scheduled to
appear at a fundraiser for Ros-
Lehtinen to boost her bid in
the Aug. 29 election.
Richman, propelled by a
strong Miami Beach voter tur-
nout, came from behind to
finish first in the Democratic
field of seven candidates with
28 percent or 5,853 votes.
Kennedy finished in a close
second with 27 percent, or
5,707 of the votes with all 149
precincts reporting. Pepper's
niece, Jo Ann Pepper, was
knocked out of the race,
despite a strong third-place
finish with 24 percent or 5,097
votes.
Richman and Kennedy will
face each other in an Aug. 15
runoff for the right to chal-
lenge Ros-Lehtinen.
In other races Tuesday,
Republican primary winner
Lincoln Diaz-Balart will face
Democratic winner Gene Flinn
in the Senate District 34 race.
In the race for House District
110, Republicans Miguel De
Grandy and Justo Luis Pozo
will face-off in a runoff for the
right to challenge Democrat
John Walters.

vicious and deliberate killing of
civilians, as well as the taking
of hostages."
Robert Lifton, president of
American Jewish Congress
said that the murder should
remind both the United States
and Israel of the need to take
strong measures against ter-
rorism.
The murder of Col. Higgins
also emphasizes the great risks
for peace Israel is being asked
to take and which it is in fact
taking." Lifton said.
A B'nai B'rith official criti-
cized the attempt by some
Americans to equate the hold-
ing of hostages by Shiite
groups in Lebanon with
Israel's July 28 capture of a
Shiite leader, Sheikh Abdul
Karim Obeid.
Thomas Neumann, execu-
tive vice president of B'nai
B'rith International, said that
"even the use of the term
'kidnapping' or 'abduction' in
reference to Israel's arrest of a
notorious terrorist is an
affront to sensibility and jus-
tice."
Harvey Feldman. interna-
tional relations director of the
American Jewish Committee
also decried such a compari-
son. Higgins, he noted, "was
part of a U.N. peacekeeping
mission, while Obeid was the
commander of assassination
brigades. There can be no
equivalence.
"To say that international
law forbids seizing killers
where you find them is simply
incorrect," he added. "Israel,
like other nations, has the
right to take direct action
against those who attack its
citizens or plan terrorist acts
on Israeli territory."
The Workmen's Circle called
for world pressure on the "Ira-
nian masters" of Shiite funda-
mentalist groups to aid the
release of all hostages.

The Winds of Change
Are Blowing Across
Oil!* City*** The voters are
looking for answers from Comm. Grenald
to these disturbing questions about:
1 .The horrible accelerating crime and our #1 in crime reputation!
2. The shameful backroom secretive politics!
3. The tragic renaming of our Convention Center!
4.The unmitigated gall of some Commissioners' hiring their own public
relations man for city business at $36,000!
5. Misuse of campaign funds for his own
personal use!
6. Our dirty streets and alleys!
7.The unbelievable giveaway of our $12,000,000 to Homestead!
8. The six year TOPA fiasco and the squandering of $7,000,000!
9. The mismanagement of the city's finances, creating a $4,500,000
shortfall in the city's upcoming budget, necessitating cutting
125 employees from the payroll.
