I---------
Baers Address to The
UJA Mission to Israel
must be reckoned with, learned
from and dealt with. We must
learn from our past so that we
can live in the future.
Yes, 6 million Jews died during
the Holocaust and over 900 here
on Massada. Why? Yes Why?
What is the common link be-
tween these two tragedies of the
past and all of us here today. The
answer is simple. There wasn't a
land anywhere that they could
call to and look to for help.
During the Holocaust not one
country raised a hand to help, not
even the United States. Our
Jewish leaders begged
Washington to open our doors
and to bomb the railroad tracks
leading to the ovens, but no one
helped. 6 million died! The men
and women of Massada which fell
after 3 years of gallant fighting
also had no one to turn to for help
while they waited to die. There
was no Israel for Massada. There
was no Israel for the Holocaust
and that's the unfortunate link
between these two terrible
tragedies.
Thank God, today, there is an
Israel (take Entebee as an
example) and that is our only
hope that history cannot and
will not repeat itself. We' as
Americans must do more than
our share to prove and see to it
that "We Are One." We must
give not only our money, but our
hearts and souls to Israel. When
Israel is strong the Jews not only
here in Israel but all over the
world will be strong and prosper.
If we stand by idly and let Israel
grow weak and disappear then
the Jews of the world will also
grow weaker and disappear.
It cannot happen. We won't let
it happen, because we truly must
and do believe that "We Are
One," that all Jews everywhere
have a common destiny. We have
learned from the Holocaust and
from Massada. We must repeat it
to ourselves and to our children:
"Massada, never again." We
must go home committed and
then we can all say

I am looking forward to a larger
drive. People come to the Village
having been Jewish community
leaders and workers in many
cities up North. It is now our job
to once again direct their energies
on behalf of Israel."
Chanukah.
A celebration off victory.
In memory of the miracle that rekindled Jewish
faith. The feast of lights to mark the great victory
of the Jewish people. Symbolized by the menorah,
whose candles burn as brightly as the lamp oil
which burned in the Temple for eight days. A time
for rededication, just as the Temple was dedicated
so long ago. A time to honor those who have given
their lives to save their faith, so all men can share
the right to worship in their chosen way.
As our symbol represents, Menorah Chapels reflects
a sense of honor and rededication to the miracle of
our faith and those who died to preserve it.

The Jewish Floridian of South County
Friday, Novcmb,,^
Shame on the Revisionists
We applaud the decision of Sen. Frank Church
(D., Iowa) not to accept the Centennial Medal offered
to a group of distinguished Americans at a tribute
marking the 100th anniversary of Ze'ev Jabotinsky.
Among those the Revisionist Zionists also chose to
honor was the Rev. Jerry Falwell, of the Moral
Majority.
American Jewry's propensity for honoring non-
Jews pens a black page in the annals of our history,
Zionist and otherwise. The choices have too often
been too slick, too obvious, too pragmatic.
Even under the most sophisticated of cir-
cumstances, we have had our hands burned. Who will
ever forget the darling of the Zionist movement,
Dorothy Thompson, who in the end became a
vitriolic Israel-hater?
If that could not have been easily foreseen, the
decision to anoint the Rev. Falwell is clearly a case of
award without awareness. At the same time that
Falwell was accepting his medal in New York, in
Detroit the Conference of Jewish Federations and
Welfare Funds General Assembly heard a clear
warning about the role of the Moral Majority in the
ccent presidential election, its intimidating tactics
lor targeting 'enemies*' of Christian life and
thought, and a reminder that it is Christian fun-
rualism in America today that tells us that God
not hear the prayers of Jews.
VrV< can not for a certainty commit the Rev.
Falwell to the snakepit of these views although he
lid himself recently refer to the God and
>h prayer bit in a speech of his own a
f( nee tor which he later apologized. How he
es himself trom the popular theology that the
Moral Majority represents is a precarious exercise in
pragmatic logic.
U ouldn't it have been better to have avoided the
medal to him altogether? Instead, he has been cited
by a Jewish organization for no other reason than for
his recent apology for the slur to Jews.
Sen. Church, a primary victim of the Moral
Majority and other organizations of this ilk, was
right to reject the Centennial Medal. Jews ought to
feel ashamed that they have insulted him in this way.
And worried that they have the Falwell tiger in their
ideological tank.
Father Drinan
It is sad that Rep. Robert F. Drinan was forced
to resign from his seat as a U.S. Representative (D.,
Mass.) by the Roman Church which he serves as a
priest. Now comes the establishment of the Robert F.
Drinan Human Rights Information Center in Madrid
as a tribute to Father Drinan for his magnificent
achievements in the field of human rights.
The new Center was announced at a tribute to
him in Boston at the end of October, and we must all
applaud this honor to him.
The Helsinki Accords, signed by the United
States, the Soviet Union and European nations in
1975, pledged to respect cultural, religious and
human rights of minorities and to allow emigration
for the purpose of reunification of families.
More than anyone else, Father Drinan knows
that the Soviet Union may have signed in Helsinki,
but has done nothing about honoring its pledges.
The Center in his honor will serve as a major
source of information in Madrid during the latest
deliberations of the signatory countries begun at the
end of last week. The Center will carry on the human
rights work he has performed so ardently for the past
decade in the United States Congress.

president 482 7207
girl, whenever I went to a party, I
got drunk and couldn't stop
drinking. When I came to Israel,
I d have a half a bottle of wine on
a Friday night, then a bottle, and
eventually, it would be Fridays,
then Wednesdays, then more
days until there were none left
when I was sober.
"My pattern of drinking began
in the afternoon when I got home
from my work as an information
officer with new immigrants, and
ended when I woke up with a
hangover the next morning. I
used to cry a lot, but I put it
down to personal problems
people, places and things
never to drink. I still didn't know
I was an alcoholic."
SHE WOULD get desperate
and phone friends, talk for hours,
forget and phone them again.
People were supportive and
advised therapy, which didn't
help, and so finally she agreed to
go into the hospital for treat-
ment.
"They gave me Antabuse, a
drug against alcoholism, after
which it is considered dangerous
to drink. But I knew better than
the doctors," she says with self-
deprecating irony, "I drank a
glass of whiskey, I thought I
would die." There followed three
months she doesn't even remem-
ber clearly. The therapist had
told her only one thing could help
her now AA and what a pit
it was that Israel had no brnach.
Then in May, 1975 a friend
phoned her she had heard on
the radio that AA had started in
Jerusalem. Although terrified of
traveling, Joyce overcame her
fears and went to a meeting. "I
came home with a book and a
prayer something happened to
me and I've never taken another
1 drink since that day."
SHE REPRESENTED Israel
at the 45th anniversary reunion
of AA in the States. "It's my life
now," she says. "Before A A I
knew I would either go mad or
die. Now I live just for today. AA
teaches one that alcoholism is a
disease but it also teaches you to
accept your affliction and to
manage your life."
Attendance at meetings, which
are held three times weekly in
Jerusalem, Haifa, Tel Aviv and
Beersheba, is small between
ten to fifteen people for the two
English-speaking and one
Hebrew-speaking gathering. AA
is clearly not reaching Israel's
estimated 6,000 alcoholics. Par-
ticular ethnic groups have more
of a problem than others there
is said to be a high rate of al-
coholism, amongst Indian immi-
grants and elderly Yemenite men.
What has turned Israelis into
drinkers? Not, as one might sus-
pect, the stresses and tensions of
everyday life in Israel, but rather
the increased affluence. As a
social worker specializing in the
prevention of alcohol put it,
"Years ago, Israelis would offer
their guests tea and coffee, now
the question is: whiskey or gin?
Drink is a form of status symbol.
People watch the drinking habits
of their favorite stars in Ameri-
can films and it makes them feel
good to copy their life style."
ANOTHER alcoholic claims
that the percentage of
Jews drinking today is no more
and no less than in other groups.
Research on alcoholism has even
been done amongst Jews in the
U.S.
On the brighter side, the
Encyclopedia Britannica lists the
degree of alcohol consumption in
thirty diferent countries, and
guess which country comes at the
bottom of the list why Israel,
naturally.
