tinian self-rule in the territ-
ory, linked to Jordan.
Those are key elements of the
peace plan announced by Pres-
ident Reagan on September 1,
1982. The Administration has
stated repeatedly since then that
it stands by the plan which was
totally rejected by Israel at the
time and failed to induce either
Palestinians or Jordan to enter
negotiations with Israel.
FALWELL, a strong sup-
porter of Reagan, told a press
conference here that while he is
"the best President in my life-
time," he disagreed with his
formula for a peaceful settlement
of the Palestinian problem.
"There is no way that Israel can
surrender so much of its real

The Moral Majority, a coali-

Christians in the U.S., was hold-
ing a convention here. The 630
delegates were addressed by Def-
ense Minister Moshe Arens who
stated flatly that Israel would
make no concessions whatever on
the West Bank. He said the U.S.
should back Israel's position on
the territories.
"If the U.S. wants Israel to be
strong and I know that it does
it must understand that Israel
cannot be strong if these areas
(West Bank and Gaza) are cut off
from the territory controlled by

forum at Temple Beth El, featur-
ing these two distinguished aca-
demicians from the Hebrew Uni-
Professor Ira Sharkansky
studied in the United States and
received his BS at Wesleyan Uni-
versity in 1960, and his MS in
1961 from the University of Wis-
consin, as well as his PhD in
1964. He has taught Public Ad-
ministration, Public Enterprise,

ics for academic undergraduate
and graduate students, sod for

universities throughout the
United States since 1964 and the

has written (which are too
numerous to list) as well as his
present position ss Professor of
Political Science at the Hebrew
University, will insure an inter-
esting and in depth view of
current events in the Middle

Professor Hillel I. Shuval was
born in Washington, DC. Son of
the late Rabbi Yehuda Shuval

Arens said, "It took a massive
loss of life" for American leaders
to "finally realize whom we are
dealing with."
theme, Arens noted that in the
past, the U.S. kept its coopera-
tion with Israel at a relatively low
key in order to pursue an even-
handed policy in the region. It
was "heart-rending that the re-
cent outrages" were necessary to
bring home the true nature of the
Wests adversaries in the Middle
East, he said.
He urged Americans not to

Israeli forces in Lebanon made

headquarters in Tyre.
Falwell praised Israel for
having "liberated Lebanon" and
contended that if it were not for
Israel, the Soviet Union would
now own the oil fields of the Mid-
dle East. He also claimed that
"four-thousand years of history"
supports Israel's claim to all of

Similar views were expressed
by David Susskind of Belgium,
one of the organizers of the
Brussels World Conference on
Soviet Jewry. He said he found it
increasingly difficult to answer
questions by the younger genera-
tion of Jews about Judaism and
Israel, especially the issue of
human rights for the Arabs.
"IT IS customary here (in Is-
rael) to stop people on the street
for security questioning just by
their looks. For me as a Jew, this
is a nightmare. I remember the
not too distant past when one
used to stop other people because
of their looks." Susskind said.

Samuel Mendel Melton was cited as one of the
greatest figures in Jewish education in the
twentieth century by Hebrew University
Chancellor Avraham Herman.
"Sam Melton has inspired us to take on chal-

Harman. "His financial contribution has been
just one part of a dynamic relationship he has had
with our University."
Mr. Melton was born in Austria-Hungary and
immigrated to the United States at the age of
four. He worked with his father, a Toledo, Ohio
fruit peddler, and later worked his way through
Ohio State University. His inventions in pipe
couplings became the basis of the Capital Sup-

Spain to Establish Diplomatic

Israel, according to Edgar

was informed of this by
Prime Minister Felipe
Gonzalez during their
private meeting at the
Moncloa Palace.
Bronfman was the first world
Jewish leader to make such a
visit to this country since the end
of the Franco era. He said
Gonzalez told him he was com-
mitted to the principle of rela-
tions with Israel and intended to
fulfill his commitments.
I"This sabotage and hatred "THE SPANISH Prime Min-
ister has informed me that diplo-
matic relations between Spain
and Israel will be established,"
the WJC leader declared.
He added that he gained the
impression that Gonzalez already
has a date or time in mind to act
formally on this matter. He
quoted the Prime Minister as
saying that the timing would be
dictated by "Spanish national
interest only" and that no
pressure from any quarter would
influence the manner and timing
of this decision.
WJC sources reported that
Bronfman and Gonzalez agreed
to hold an Iberio-Jewish
dialogue" next year under the
joint sponsorship of the WJC and
the Spanish government. It is
expected to be held in Cordoba,
the birthplace of Maimonidee.

Joseph Begun: An Heroic Struggle to Teach Judaism ii"""S&%
Gienn Richter is director of the
Student Struggle for Soviet
Dr. Joseph Begun must be the
Soviet Union's leading but
unofficial Jewish educator.
For this distinction, he is now
in his third imprisonment for the
crime of teaching Hebrew and
Jewish culture. Sentenced on
Oct. 14 to 12 years of brutal labor
camps and harsh Siberian exile,
he is now in the notorious
Vladimir Prison.
The story of his resistance to
Soviet abuse and his adherence to
Judaism, not well known in
America, is heroic.
Part of Begun's steel is drawn
from his forebearers. According
to the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry, his grandfather
Boris was a sofer (scribe) and his
father Zisel a religious working
man who died in 1943 when his
son was 11. For three years
during World War II, Joseph and
his mother Anna were evacuated
to Omsk; many other relatives
perished. By 1963. Begun, an
engineer and mathematician,
had won a candidate of science
degree, equal to a doctorate. He
published 11 scientific works.
Eight years later, his professional
world collapsed when he applied
to emigrate to Israel and was
dismissed from his job.
Begun was undeterred. From
January 1972, he vigorously
campaigned to have himself offi-
cially recognized and registered
as a private tutor of Hebrew,
which was self-taught. But to list
him as such would mean that the
authorities were officially
acknowledging Hebrew as a
legitimate national language.
Begun presented every logical
argument, but to no avail, in-
cluding a quote from Lenin: "He
is not a Marxist nor a democrat if
he does not admit or support the
equality of nations and
languages," Dina Beilin, fellow
activist now in Israel, recalls,
"Begun was a kind of fanatic
about the Hebrew language. He
worked night and day as a
KGB harassment and arrest
were no strangers. Begun's diary
of November 22, 1976 records:
"Before I reached my house, a
man came up and asked, 'Are you
Begun?' They took me to the
police station where I was held
until 1 a.m. A team of in-
vestigators arrived. I was taken
home. The door was smashed in.
The search lasted from 1:30 a.m.
to 10 a.m. They took about 100
In January 1977, a sensational
"documentary," "Traders of
Souls." was broadcast on
national Soviet television,
viciously attacking Begun.
Anatoly Shcharansky and
several other Jewish activists by
name as "soldiers of Zionism
inside the Soviet Union." In
February and March, Begun and
a colleague were detained several
times as they sought to enter the
American Embassy in Moscow to
hand over documents on an
unofficial symposium on Jewish
culture which had been aborted
by the secret police.
Several days after the last inci-
dent, Begun was arrested as a
"social parasite." In protest, he
went on a three-month hunger
strike. Prison guards force-fed
him with a tube pushed down his
nose. To avoid a demonstration
by friends outside the court-
house, the trial date was switched
abruptly three times. His friend,
author Felix Kandel, wrote a
descriptive poem on the proceed-
ings: "Ivrit (Hebrew), the
modern Jewish language, is on
trial! You can't put nouns and
verbs in the dock, you can't try
prefixes. So in the prisoner's dock
is Joseph Begun."
Weakened from his fast but
defiantly wearing a kipah. Begun
was sentenced to two years. After
an unspeakable 68-dav slow
journey in a cattle car jammed
with starving criminals, he
arrived in Siberian exile. Even
from this wasteland, his flow of
letters and appeals protesting the
delegitimization of Hebrew and
Jewish culture did not cease. To
the Belgrade review conference
on the Helsinki Accords, for
example, he declared the Soviet
campaign to be "legalized
judicial persecution."
By March 1978, Begun was out
from exile but, the Student
Struggle pointed out, the
authorities refused to give him a
permit to return to his wife and
two sons in Moscow. "Go back to
Siberia," officials sneered. In
May, while still seeking the
necessary documents to remain
with his family, and after
standing as a mark of solidarity
outside the courtroom where
dissident Yuri Orlov was tried,
Begun was rearrested for
"violation of the internal pass-
port regulations."
His June trial was described by
his wife Dr. Alia Drugova, a
physician: "Joseph was put on
trial on the 43rd day of a hunger
strike. He was in awful condition.
He just about fell out of the
police car. Two officers took him
under his arms and jokingly pull-
ed him into the courthouse. When
it was announced, 'stand up, the
trial has begun,' Joseph couldn't
rise. The judge burst into
laughter. On her order, two
policemen took him from the
bench and he hung in their arms.
It appeared at times that he was
losing consciousness, but when
for a short period he revived and
began talking, the judge said
mockingly, 'Look, you can
speak.' But Joseph then fell
unconscious on the bench. 'Write
it down,' the judge told the clerk,
'Begun doesn't answer the
question.' "
Begun was too weak to give
the defense speech he had
prepared. In the text, he
declared: "Although I am now in
the dock and you will doubtlessly
find me guilty, I am a freer man
than you. I know that I suffer in
a just cause. I say to my per-
secotOTs: Look at the history of
the Jewish people, covered with
tears and blood. It is impossible
to break us by persecution."
Begun's close friend and pupil
Avigdor Eskin, now in Israel,
remembers visiting his mentor in
his new sentence of three years of
Siberian banishment: "It was
minus 60 degrees. He was a
solitary Jew put with criminals
and others who became progres-
sively cruder because of ex-
tremely harsh conditions of life. I

was astonished when Joseph told
me that he kept all the Jewish
holidays. From a tree he had
made a Hanukkah menorah to
enjoy the light of its candles."
The term was up. Begun was
again denied a return to the
capital, and stayed in Strunino,
60 miles away. By this time as
well, he had divorced. Alia, with
one of the sons, finally received
exit visas to Israel. Begun
resumed his driving pace of
teaching, collating and trans-
lating Hebrew and Jewish
The 35 signatories of the
Helsinki Accords, which affirms
cultural freedom and emigration
rights, again met, this time in
Madrid. It was November 1982.
Unsilenced, Begun sent an ap-
peal. The KGB retaliated, and
Begun was arrested in Lenin-
grad, where he had gone for a
brief rest with his fiancee Inn a
Shlemova. Two weeks before, her
Moscow apartment had been
searched for five hours by the
secret police. One hundred twelve
of Begun's books and pamphlets
on Jewish topics, Hebrew tapes
and his compilation of Jewish
historical material which he had
called "our inheritance" were
among the items confiscated.
This time the charge was much
more ominous: "anti-Soviet
agitation and propaganda."
Vladimir Prison, the jail which
had housed Shcharansky and
Yosef Mendelevich among its
manv others, was Beeun's ad-
dress for 11 isolated months until
his trial last month. His remain-
ing son in the USSR, Boris,
remembers his father's words
before his arrest: "Let no one be
mistaken. If my activities are
represented as hostile to the
Soviet regime, it will be a trial of
Jewish culture." His Moscow
friends stated in an appeal:
"They're trying to break a man
who won't bend."
How right they were. One
Saturday during his interro-
gation, Begun covered his ears as
not to violate the Sabbath by
listening to official documents
read to him. Guards pulled his
arms down several times. Then
they shackled him to a chair.
A tide of Western public
opinion rose to Begun's defense.
An unprecedented 98 senators
jointly appealed on his behalf.
U.S. and European diplomats
sought intercession. But a
campaign that might well have
worked during other times fell
victim to muscle-flexing by the
Andropov regime and Kremlin
reaction to Western fury over the
downing of a Korean airliner.
Moreover, Begun was a symbol
to the Soviets of the remarkable
Jewish self-education movement
that had sprung up across the
USSR in face of the slashing of
emigration by 98 percent since
1979. Begun and Jewish
resistance had to be visibly

Kfar Saba: An Overview
Friday. December 9,1983
Volume 5
Editor's note: These stories
about Yoseftal and Kaplan
two neighborhoods in Kfar Saba
which the South County Jewish
Federation has been paired with
under Israel's Project Renewal
program, will appear throughout
the upcoming year. Project Re-
newal is a joint effort between the
Jews of the Diaspora and the Is-
raeli Government to help less
fortunate Jews in Israeli society.
God's chosen people. Israel's
forgotten people. These are the
Jews of Yoseftal and Kaplan
two neighborhoods in the city of
Kfar Saba, which is just 30
minutes outside of Tel Aviv.
These Sephardic and Oriental
Jews, many from Iraq, Iran,
Yemen and Morocco, emmigrated
to Israel in the early 1950's, but
the young country was not ready
to handle this wave of new
citizens. In contrast to im-
migrants who came later and
moved into larger, better homes,
these early settlers were put into
cramped living quarters, given
second-rate homes.
In Kfar Saba, these early im-
migrants were moved into Yosef-
tal and Kaplan which was
physically separated from the
city proper by farmland. Their
neighborhoods served as buffer
between the city and a nearby
Arab village which before the
1967 Six Day war was part
Jordan. Now, the Arab village,
which is just one and a half miles
from their homes, is part of the
West Bank.
For years, Yoseftal and Kaplan
were reminiscent of ghettos from
past days. These Jews, their
children and grandchildren have
been living a second class exist-
ence for 30 years. With the third
generation, problems started
cropping up. The grandchildren
of these original immigrants real-
ized there was a better life just
beyond their reach. It was not a
question of getting them jobs
since unemployment in Israel is
extremely low, but there Jews
could not get decent jobs, nor
could they pass the admittance
tests for the army. Other
problems arose. Crime, which 15
years ago was unheard of in Is-
rael, started occurring. Drugs,
prostitution and robberies.
In 1977, it was time to remem-
ber these neglected Jews. That
was when the government of
former Prime Minister
Menachem Begin decided to take
action. That action was Project
Renewal which helps neglected
Jews in more than 80 blighted
areas in Israel.
The South County Jewish Fed-
eration is part of Project Renew-
al. South County Jews have
formed a bond with the Jews of
Yoseftal and Kaplan. Project Re-
newal helps these Jews not only
with financial assistance, but
with the bond that has been
forged, telling these people that
they are not alone, someone
cares. The South County Jewish
Federation, as other Jewish com-
munities in the Diaspora, is part
of this joint venture with the Is-
raeli government to bring these
forgotten Jews into the main-
stream of modern Israeli society
socially, educationally and
As part of this partnership, the
Israeli government is responsible
for improving the housing situa-
tion; Project Renewal helps lift
these people out of the inad-
equate living quarters in which
they have been living. Apart-
ments have been expanded,
sometimes in ingenious ways.
One family with five children
sleeping in one room now has a
"penthouse." Since they lived on
the top floor of an apartment

an extra level on top of then-
The Jews in the Diaspora help
with money for social and educa-
tion programs as well as con-
structing buildings and renovat-
ing existing community
buildings. Many programs are
geared toward helping the
parents and children. All young
children are closely watched to
make sure they are developing
normally; if not. they receive
treatment as early as possible.
The money from the South Coun-
ty Jewish Federation, if enough
is raised, would go to rennovat-
ing community buildings, such as
bomb shelters which are used for
youth centers for after school ac-
tivites. If enough money is
raised, a senior citizen center will
be built. There are about a dozen
buildings which need to be
renovated or built.
For children from troubled
homes, an afternoon home center
is planned. The children would
come here to play or study and
meet other children after school.
At night, the children would go
home to their families.
Project Renewal, as you can
see, is much more than bricks and
mortar. It strikes at the heart of
the problem, not just the visible
symptoms. The project is geared
toward breaking this cycle of
alienation, this inherited poverty.
But why has the South County
Federation been given the
Yoseftal and Kaplan neighbor
hoods in Kfar Saba? The Jewi
living here are poorer than most
Israelis, less educated. Thar
homes are in need of repairs
They sometimes live six, eight or
more to a family in tiny apart-
ments. Twenty-five percent of the
families are six people or more in
contrast to the national average
of 12.5 percent. In Yoseftal, 21.6
percent of the residents have no
formal education. In Kaplan, the
figure is 30 percent. It is any
wonder that Education Ministry
statistics from 1980 indicate that
57.8 percent of the children in
these neighborhoods are tabled
"educationally deprived." Then
Jews need help.

Segal and Charme Return From
Fact-Fin ding Mission In Israel
Las Verdes Lead By Grossman
Albert Segal, Chai Division
Chairman of the 1984 Federation-
UJA Campaign, and Larry
Charme, Men's Division Chair-
man for the 1984 drive, recently
participated in a fact finding mis-
sion sponsored by the United
Jewish Appeal.
Charme and Segal spent an in-
tensive four days assaying the
needs for new immigrants and
other segments of Israeli society
that depend upon contributions
of World Jewry. They also met
with the Prime Minister Itzhak
^Shamir, former Foreign Minister
Abba Eban and other govern-
ment leaders.
They report that the pressing
military budget of the state has
necessitated further cuts in the
state budget for social services
for the year 1984. The govern-
ment officials reported to them
that they hope that World Jewry-
can pick up the slack in funding
the social services that are cut
through the 1984 UJA-Federa
tion campaigns throughout the
Charme and Segal toured the
Yoseftal and Kaplan neighbor-
hoods of Kfar Saba which have

How Can One Help?
Volunteer to serve as a civilian
in the military. Volunteers will
take over the duties that other-
wise would have to be done by
reservists in army maintenance
camps. Every volunteer's time
spent will relieve a reservist of
corresponding time on active
duty. The economy of Israel will
directly benefit by your "giving

What Must You Do To Help?
Serve 21 days as a volunteer.
Your only cost will be round-trip

$20 registration fee (monies used
to pay expenses of the volunteers
program). Food and lodging are
supplied free by the military.

Segal was particularly im-
pressed with the social integra-
tion that is in progress in Israel.
He said, "anyone taking a serious
look at Israeli society is struck by
the fact that more Arabs and Is-
raelis are working side by side in
the market place. There is a de-
finite advancement in the inter-
action between the Arabs and the
Jews within Israel itself within
the past five or 10 years. This is a
marked contrast to the feeling
Larry Charme
that one gets when reading the
international media. The fact is
that there is a basic commonality
between Arabs and Jews within
Israel and that if external pres-
sures can be resolved, there is a
fine human relations basis on
which to build a just society

When Private Grief
Becomes Public Domain
In October of 1982 members of
the South County Jewish Feder-
ation Mission to Israel visited the
city of Yamit.
It was a typically sunny day in
the Sinai. The intense sun cast
deep shadows in the angles of the
white stucco buildings. In the
distance, one could see the sun
sparkle on a very blue Mediter-
ranean. Yet a pall hung over the
The Government of Israel had
agreed to surrender the city as
part of the Camp David process.
We sat in a square and had some
ice cream. It was though we were
prisoners to be executed and were
having our last meal. Nearby
some children were decorating
their bikes for a celebration.
Their age of innocence was yet to
be rudely awakened. We were all
to learn of the disheartening sub-
sequent events.
Israeli soldiers fought with
some of the settlers who refused
to leave. The Government of Is-
rael offered generous compensa-
tion. Who can appraise a dream?
Once again, two years later we
joined the South County Mission.
Once, again we were in the
We approached the new border
with Egypt with curiosity. Some
Egyptian border guards waved to
us gaily.
We had just left a spanking new
kibbutz inhabited by many of
the former settlers of Yamit. The
mood on the bus was happy. The
usual banter was taking place.
The bus suddenly stopped at a
place unique in all the world. The
Israelis had trucked hundreds
and hundreds of concrete slabs
from a bulldozed Yamit to this
special place. We left the bus and
stood silently at this special
place, the cemetery of a city. The
hriai resting place of a dream.
Yes, we were all very emotional.
Handkerchiefs were being used.
It was then that I decided my
private grief should become pub-
lic domain

Hanukkah Has a
Message For Everyone
U.S. Jews Ignored
It is time once again when
Jewish people join in th* celebra-
on of Hanukkah.
I know Hanukkah days are
joyous days, marked by special
eremonies in the home, tradi-
tional foods, the sharing of gifts
id community festivals. Partic-
llarly involved are religious serv-
ces with prayers of thankagiv
Hanukkah also affords the op-
ortunityl for men, women and
Children to renew their study of
[hat critical period in Jewish hia-
ory when freedom was endan-
gered and great courage was
called for to ensure its protection.
Jews of that time met the chal-
lenge with valor and produced a
miraculous victory.
So, the days of Hanukkah re-
call that struggle to restore and
preserve the ideal of human liber-
ty, an experience that has guided
Jewish people ever since.
Thus, while Hanukkah is a
Jewish celebration, its
meaning provides a massage of
significance to freedom-loving
people everywhere. That is:
though the price may be great,
tyranny must be resisted.
The Israeli press covers the U.S.
Jewish community only super-
ficially, sccording to Judith
Elizur of the Hebrew University
Institute of Communications.
Elizur recently completed a
study of coverage of the U.S.
Jewish scene by four leading He-
brew dailies and the Israeli elec-
tronic media. She said that as a
result of the superficial coverage
Israeli leaders have little idea
how their decisions affect Ameri-
can Jewry.

Orthodox Singe Cuomo for Order
NEW YORK (JTA) Gov. Mario Cuomo kept a
campaign promise, for which he has been severely
criticized by Orthodox Jewish and fundamentalist
Christian clergymen by signing an executive order to
protect homosexuals in New York from discrimination in
state employment and in providing of state services.
Rabbi Yehuda Levin of Brooklyn, director of the
Family Defense Coalition, members of which twice met
with the Governor in efforts to dissuade him from issuing
the order, sad the coalition would seek to "alert
Americans to the fact" that the Governor was "a direct
threat to the family."
THE GOVERNOR SAID his order simply repeats
protections already provided in the federal Constitution,
spelling out the specifics for state procedures and setting
up a task force to measure compliance.
The Governor, commenting on Rabbi Levin's charge,
said it was of the "utmost significance" that when the
rabbi made his charge, he had not read the executive
