Within this thriving and
throbbing metropolis is also a
vital Jewish community of 10,000
people, about one-third of the
entire Jewish population of Italy.
Jews and Jewish sites are visible
everywhere. There are about 10
synagogues, five kosher butcher
shops, Talmud Torahs and a day
school. Jewish and Italian cultu-
ral and social activities are inter-
twined in a complex mosaic.
FOR INSTANCE, next to the
world famous Ambrosiana Muse-
um of Piazza Pio XI Square,
which contains Judaica and fea-
tures the designs of Leonardo da
Vinci, is "Coen's Butcher Shop,"
operated by Jews from Egypt.
Along with typical Italian street
names are also streets such as
Piazza Tel Aviv and Via Sally
Mayer which is named after Sally
Mayer who was a noted Jewish
industrialist and philanthropist.
There is a Jewish day school at 4-
6 Via Sally Mayer.
In shops and outdoor cafes of
the famous Galleria, the center of
political and social life of the city
and situated near the Milan
Cathedral and the La Scala
Opera, one can hear men and wo-
men speaking Arabic Some of
them are Jews from Libya. Seve-
ral thousand Libyan Jews came
here in 1948 because they spok;
Italian. Until the middle of World
War II, Italy controlled Libya.
There are also about 1.000
Iranian Jews here. They maintain
their own synagogue and club for
young people. They are excellent
businessmen, skilled in the
diamond and carpet trade. They
are very pro-Israel and are ac-
tively involved in behalf of the
Jewish State. Many Egyptian
Jews also settled here, the result
of the emigration from Egypt
after the 1956 and 1967 wars.
Jews from Nazi Germany lo
settled here. They fled Hitler m
the 1930's.

Emigration Down to a Trickle
Fascell Gets Grim News About Soviet Jews from Shultz
Emigration by Jews from the
Soviet Union continued to be just
a trickle during the last six
months while repression of activ-
ists and discrimination of Jews
continued to increase in the
USSR, according to a State De-
partment report.
"The repression of Jewish
activists have paralleled the re-
pression of other dissenters," it
was noted in the 13th semi-an-
nual report by the President of
the Commission on Security and
Cooperation in Europe on the
Implementation of the Helsinki
Final Act.
"The precipitous drop in Jew-
ish emigration which began in
1980 has continued, and current
emigration levels are so dras-
tically low that emigration has all
but ceased to be a practical
option for Soviet Jews," the re-
port said.
THE REPORT, which covers
the period from June 1 to Nov.
30, was submitted by Secretary
of State George Shultz to Rep.
Dante Fascell (D. Fla.) chairman
of the Commission. It noted that
emigration figures for Jews,
ethnic Germans and Armenians,
the three groups that have been
allowed to emigrate have dropped
"Only 2,207 Jews were allowed
to emigrate in the first nine
months of 1982," the report said.
"If projected to the end of the
year, this would result in the emi-
gration of leas than 3,000 Jews in
1982, compared to 61,300 in 1979,
when emigration from the USSR
reached its zenith."
The report added that "there
are reports from a number of
areas in the USSR that local
offices of visas and registration
(OVIR) officials have been telling
prospective emigrants that 'Jew-
ish emigration is coming to an
end.' Many Soviet Jews attribute
this decline to the deterioration of
East-West relations in the past
several years and to Soviet fears
of a Jewish 'brain-drain.' Soviet

THE REPORT noted that at
least 14 persons have been ar-
rested this year for "merely in-
dicating a desire to emigrate."
The application process has be-
come "even more difficult" and
efforts to receive documents are
"very time consuming and often
because of bureaucratic obstruc
tionism, virtually impossible."
Jewish refuseniks have been
intimidated into ending their
contacts with foreigners, accord-
ing to the report. It noted that is
September the KGB warned the
leading Moscow refusenik, Alek-
sandr Lemer, to end his contacts
with diplomats, correspondents
and other visitors or face trial
and imprisonment.
In addition, the report noted
that "the authorities have treat-
ed Western tourists who met
with dissidents, religious be-
lievers or refuseniks with usually
heavy-handed crudeness and
have denied visas to others whom
they have suspected of intending
to do so."
THIS HAS been particularly
true in Leningrad, but also in
Moscow and Kiev. "For instance,
an official of a U.S. Jewish or-
ganization was warned by several
strangers in her Moscow hotel to |
'start behaving responsibly' by
ceasing to meet with refuseniks,"
the report said.
The report also noted that one
of the most active Jewish culture-
Hebrew study circles in Moscow
led by Pavel Abramoyjch was
suspended in June under pres-
sure from the authorities.
"There have been numerous
reports of discrimination against
Jews, such as denial of access to
higher education," the report
said. It said that 11 Jews had
their higher degrees revoked
which results in the loss of their
jobs and income. "Occasional at-
tacks on Zionism in the media
appear intended to arouse anti-
Semitic feelings among the popu-
lace," the report charged.
THE REPORT also noted the
plight of Anatoly Shcharanaky,
who is being force fed because he
went on a hunger strike in prison
to protest the refusal to allow him
visitors and mail. Jewish activist
Aleksandr Paritsky recanted on

400 Jews Down from Once-Splendid Baghdad Communii
London Chronicle Syndicate
With the advance of
Iranian troops to the en-
virons of Basra, in the two-
year Iraq-Iran War,
concern is felt for the Jew-
ish families in that city.
The majority of the remain-
ing Iraqi Jews, numbering
about 400, live in the
capital, Baghdad, which
has been subjected to
several air attacks by the
Iranian air force.
The mainly elderly Jews who
live in Baghdad or Basra are a
pitiful remnant of a splendid
community of over 150,000 when
Israel was established in 1948.
They are almost entirely self-sup-

Italy before the 20th Century.
The Lubavitch movement
maintains a synagogue and a
yeshiva at Via Carlo Poerio 35
and has made progress in im-
buing the Jewish community
with a measure of religious cons
ciousness. Jewish leaders,
however, point out that the
Lubavitch are not part of the
mainstream of Jewish life and
that the separation between them
and the highly assimilated Ital-
ian Jews remains to be overcome.

"Even now statesmen and a Pope
honor the killers of Israeli chil-
dren while condemning Israel for
collaborating with the killers of

A Test of Morality
Once again. Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum
has hit itonthe head. The Rabbi noted the
other day that the full-scale inquiry of the
Palestinian massacre going on in Israel
"proves the opposite of what anti-Israel
propagandists and anti-Semites have been
blathering for months."
Even though, says Tanenbaum, the
Christian Phalangists pulled the triggers
and killed several hundred Palestinians,
"that did not stop the vicious condemna-
tion of Israel as being allegedly Nazi-like,
immoral, and what not."
The central question, of course, is to
note exactly how that "immoral" Israeli
government is behaving.
A panel of two Supreme Court justices
and a former general have summoned the
highest officials of the government and
army to give an account of what they knew
and did to stop the massacre. No one in Is-
rael who was in a decision-making position
is exempt from public scrutiny.
Argues Tanenbaum: "Even the United
States, one of the greatest democracies in
human history, took years to overcome the
obstacle to a Watergate inquiry. It took Is-
rael but one week. During the inquiry on
the Mi) Lai massacre, not a single general
was held accountable, although it was done
by an American battalion."
11 is a fantasy to insist that Israel
must be perfect, must never do wrong. No
other state in the world is asked never to do
wrong; no other state is asked to justify its
existence by being morally superior.
Teller Urges Israel to Build Nuclear Reactors Against
Bomb Attacks As Well As Nuclear Power Plant
Nuclear physicist. Dr. Edward
Teller, advised the Israeli gov-
ernment to build both nuclear
reactors as deterrents against
attacks and a nuclear power plant
for the nation's energy needs.
Teller offered these recom-
mendations during a lecture on
"Perspectives on the Energy
Problem" on December 7 at the
Ben-Gurion University of the
Negev. The "Father of the
Hydrogen Bomb" was in Israel
to advise the government on its
energy needs. Any contemplated
nuclear facility would most likely
be located in the Negev region
and relate to the existing desert
research projects currently being
conducted by Ben-Gurion
University as part of the
University's overall program of
helping to build the region, which
constitutes Israel's largest und-
erdeveloped land mass.
"If you in Israel want to build
nuclear reactors, I think you
should as a precaution against
airial bombardment." Teller
further suggested that the gov-
ernment develop an underground
nuclear power station.
Commenting on American
criticism that these nuclear
power stations present dangers
to people living in the area, Teller
said, "reactors don't hurt people
but people often hurt reactors."
As the Chairman of the Commit-
tee to Draw-Up Nuclear Power
Plant Regulation, Teller felt that
his group had proposed
'' stringent safeguards.''
"We have compiled data on
approximately 2,000 reactor
years and not a single person has
been hurt. This is completely
opposite the accident rate of
other electricity producing
facilities," Teller noted.
On the other hand, the 74 year
old scientist did not disparage
the advantage of coal for Israel.
"Through the coming decades,
coal will probably play an in-
creasingly important role. The
two major drawbacks to coal
use," he said, "are the relatively
high expense entailed in loading,
transporting, and storing the
substance, and the pollution it
causes. These problems can be
Commenting on the current
debate in America and the world
regarding a nuclear freeze, Dr.
Teller suggested that America's
defense efforts should be concen-
trated on defensive weapons, not
weapons of retaliation.
"We can and we
develop defensive weapons^,!
the emphasis not on reuiti!
but on stopping the offend
nuclear arms which

"an important advantage to Ui
approach is that defers
systems are much less exper
than aggressive weapons."

who are calling for an immedS

The question is how will youel

in the past have resulted only in|l

Dr. Teller emphasized, "in thai

Teller met with Israeli]
Minister for Science and Devil]
opment, Professor Yuvm
Ne'eman, discussing plans for il
nuclear power reactor. This *a|
Teller's 12th visit to Israel.
Search for Solution At The Technion
Progress doesn't just happen
it must be planned.
But in a country that is paying
the financial and emotional price
of two wars in ten years, and
laboring under a 135 percent in-
flation rate, Israel's policy
makers do not have the luxury of
forecasting numerous social and
scientific plans and testing them
for contingencies.
"In Israel, five years is a very
long time," says American finan-
cier and philanthropist Samuel
Neaman. "There is no time or
money for long-term planning.
Government leaders have made
decisions conditioned by a lack of
time, not a lack of understanding.
They have had to operate on a
crisis-to-crisis basis, responding
to pressures of the moment."
In 1978, Samuel Neaman de-
cided that Israel needed a forum
of scholars and experts to meet
and analyze the economic, tech-
nological and social challenges
facing Israel. The outcome was
Israel's first "think tank" The
Samuel Neaman Institute for
Advanced Studies in Science and
Technology established at
Technion Israel Institute of
"In Biblical days," says Nea-
man, former President of the
McCrory department store chain,
"scholars would meet and talk,
plan and propose. This inter-
change between the best minds of
the day, each contributing from
his knowledge and insight, was
the basis for the advancement of
our people."
A 20th century version of this
process goes on at the Neaman
Institute. Specialists in the fields
of sociology, psychology,
economics, engineering, and
labor management evaluate
problems from their area of ex-
pertise and submit recommenda-
tions to government officials. For
example, the Neaman Institute is
currently forecasting the mineral
requirements for Israel's
chemical and building industries
through the end of the 20th cen-
tury. Recommendations for
mineral imports, domestic min-
ing quotas, and recycling pro-
grams will be referred to govern-
ment officials responsible for
national material policy. In this
way, Israel will have the essential
Ehysical substances necessary to
wild and grow.
Another Neaman Institute
project, carried out in conjunc-
tion with the Water Commis-
sioner's Office, is to develop a
plan for the distribution of water

including pricing policy,

I would lihe to share it with our
Dear Mr. Wallace:
I watched "Sixty Minutes" on
Sunday evening, December 5th,
and was appalled at your choice
of the person to interview regard-
ing Israel. Jacobo Timmerman is
no Israeli, cannot speak for them
and is so inflated with his own
projected image of importance
and martyrdom that he confuses
truth with falsifications and lack
of knowledge with facts.
You. Mr. Wallace, at your own
request, interviewed former
Ambassador Simcha Dinitz, who
is an Israeli, can speak for Israel
with knowledge and truth and
you elected not to present your
interview with him. Is your self-
hatred as a Jew so profound that
you can only choose those who
denigrate Israel? You should be
the last one to do Israel harm,
you who. unfortunately, have the
power of the TV medium to do so.
Your questions elicit the kind
of answer that are not factual nor
true, but distort and color insi-
dious viewpoints, none of which
tell the true story of Israel's tra-
I am delighted to inform you
that Simcha Dinitz, during his
lecture tour in the United States,
is disclosing your biased decision
not to present your interview
with him to the thousands who
came to hear him.
Your name receives hisses and
boos and a resolve never again
to watch "Sixty Minutes"
because of you. You should know
that your anti-Israel, anti-Jewish
leanings garner derision tail
invectives from the very peophj
whose favor you like to curry -
the non-Jew.
Search deeply into your heart, I
Mr. Wallace, and you will findi
self-hating sickness that pom

not winning friends, but you n)|

Coco Wood Lakes To Success in '83
Irving Seid and Lester
Weinberg, two veteran Jewish
activists who have devoted their
lives to helping others, have been
appointed by Milt Kretsky, 1983
Men's and Family Division
Chairman, to lead this year's
Federation-UJA Campaign at
Coco Wood Lakes.
Seid, called "Cy" by his many
friends, has been active in Jewish
life since his Massada Club days
as a young child. After serving as
a teenage officer of its national
organization, he went on to serve
as Chairman of the West
Hempstead, New York UJA and
Seid moved to South Florida in
1976, but he did not move away
from his lifetime of service to
other Jews. He served as UJA
Chairman in Lauderdale West,
financial secretary of Congrega-
tion Beth Israel and as an
organizer and vice president of
the Broward ZOA.
Now living in Delray Beach,
where he organized a
Delray Beach chapter of ZOA,
Seid has accepted the chairman-
ship of the Coco Wood Lakes
1983 Federation-UJA Campaign.
Seid is an actuary by profes-
sion and a graduate ot Brooklyn
College. He lives here with his
wife Phyllis, a retired
Lester Weinberg retired to
Florida last year after serving as
a teacher in the New York City
school system. But his keen sense
of duty extended far beyond the
Irving Seid
confines of the school room.
Weinberg served as president
of the Bensonhurst Zionist Dis-
trict and Field Secretary of the
Brooklyn UJA-Youth Division
and Federation.
Soon after arriving in South
Florida with his wife Rose, he
joined the Delray district of the
ZOA and graciously accepted the
co-chairmanship of Coco Wood
"As an activist I feel it is
essential to be involved and I
intend to continue my Jewish
activism in this area," Weinberg
Milt Kretsky welcomed the
new officials of the Coco Wood
campaign and noted the im-
portance of their task this year.
"I am very proud to have two
Lester Weinberg
such leaders in Coco Woods this
year. I know that they will lead it
to the great success that is
necessary for both South County
and Israel."

Leader Says U.S.
Village League
Against Palestinians
Mustapha Doudin, head of the
Israel-backed Village Leagues on
the West Bank, has accused the
United States of acting against
Palestinians who want to
negotiate with Israel.
Doudin charged that many of
the problems of the Palestinians
were caused by policy-makers in
Washington. He accused the U.S.
Consulate in East Jerusalem
specifically, of hypocrisy. The
Consulate frequently declares its
desire to achieve peace but at the
same time it assists Arab ex-
tremists and neglects the
moderates, he claimed.
Doudin, who has been invited
by several Congressmen to visit
the U.S. was reacting to a
reported statement by the State
Department that talks with him
would not advance efforts to
bring Jordan and the Palestin-
ians into peace negotiations. He
said the Americans had put him
at the bottom of the list of
possible negotiating partners.
The Village Leagues were es-
tablished by Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon to counter PLO
influence on the West Bank.
Israel has provided money and
arms to Leagues' leaders.'Last
month, the Village Leagues, con-
solidated under Doudin, mounted
a peace offensive of their own.
They challenged the Israeli gov-
ernment to negotiate with them
on the future of the occupied
territories. They say they are the
only Palestinians ready to
negotiate with Israel.

problems are derived from a nar-
row perspective, new problems
often materialize. Until recently,
efforts to eliminate slums from
urban areas by replacing tene-
ments with high-rise buildings
just didn't work because their in-
habitants remained unable to en-
ter the mainstream of Israeli life.
A Neaman Institute team is cur-
rently assigned to ten depressed
urban areas in order to evaluate
Project Renewal, the United
Jewish Appeal's innovative pro-
gram to combine the social and
physical rehabilitation of slum
neighborhoods. The analysis will
examine how local leadership can
be developed to assist the self-re-
habilitation effort, and how self-
governing groups can be organ-
ized to reflect the community's
various age groups and issues.
The study is being assisted by
two U.S. professors Professor
B. Frieden of MIT and Professor
Charles Leven from Washington
University and was commis-
sioned by the Jewish Agency and
the Israel government. When the
study is complete, it will give
policy makers in Israel an in all
industrial nations, valuable in-
sight into implementing success-
ful urban renewal programs.
But even more subtle problems
are being thought through at the
Neaman Institute. "It's a funda-
mental problem of any nation to
create a balance between supply
and demand, not only for
products but for services," says
Neaman. "We must begin to edu-
cate people for specific trades and
professions years before they are
actually needed. The economy re-
quires balanced expertise we
can't discover that we've been
educating too many doctors and
too few engineers. Education
cannot be left to hazard." Neither
can technological development,
nor scientific research. The Nea-
man Institute provides a frame-
work where tomorrow's chal-
lenges can be confronted before
they become crises.
