one gets the feeling of a high level'
of interest and involvement. All
of the divisions, the Men's, the
Family and the Women's are
running well ahead of last year's
pace. This campaign actually hit
the $2 million mark as of
February 1st. This figure was not
reached last year until March."
Mrs. Weinshank also stressed
that the actual percent of in-
crease on a card for card basis is
running 41 percent ahead of last
year. "In order to reach new
heights this year and to surpass
last year's figure of 82,667,000 for
the regular campaign, the lay and
professional leaders must
redouble their efforts in order to
make the second half of this
campaign a smashing success,"
added Mrs. Weinshank.
Mrs. Weinshank praised Men's
Chairman, Dr. Larry Charme;
Women's Division Chairman,
Margaret Kottler; and Family
Divison Chairman, Ben Bussin,
for the role that they have played
in this year's accelerated cam-
paign. "I am only sorry that I
cannot name individually the
over one thousand workers that
have helped make our South

that Howard Pittman has been
selected to serve as Chairman of

Mr. Pittman retired from the

children and eight grandchildren.
He was very active in many

director of his Temple and is a
past president of the American
Jewish Congress Chapter in his
area. In Harbor Hills, Great

Pittman stated, "We are very
excited about the Del-Aire Israel
Bond Campaign and have a
dynamic committee working
together to accomplish a most
successful event."
Che Simon Wiesenthal Center at
reshiva University has urged the
fhairmen of West Germany's five
uuor political parties to press
lor legislation to ensure that all
former concentration camp sites
|n that country be preserved as
ational shrines to the victims of
i Nazi Holocaust.
Letters, signed by Rabbi
larvin Hier. dean of the Center
Id Rabbi Abraham Cooper,
Associate dean, were sent after
West German Ambassador to
United States, Peter Hermes,
on firmed to the Center that a
artion of the former Neuen-
imme concentration camp and
Jave labor center outside of
imburg was being considered
for other purposes.
The letters, dated Jan. 30 to
coincide with the 51st anni-
versary of Hitler's rise to power
- stated, in part, that conver-
sion of the Neuengamme camp
for other purposes "would send
the wrong message at the wrong
time (to) our youth
tomorrow's leaders and give
solace to those in Germany and
elsewhere who seek to whitewash
the unprecedented crimes of the
Nazi era."
Last year, the Wiesenthal
Center protested to Hamburg
city officials over proposed
changes at Neuengamme, where
over 50 percent of its estimated
106,000 inmates perished bet-
ween 1938 and 1945.
AIPA C Reception Hosted By
Mildred and Abby Levine
Thomas Dine, Executive
Director of AIPAC (American
Israel Public Affairs Committee),
will be the guest at a reception for
AIPAC on Sunday, Feb. 26 at
the home of Mildred and Abby
Levine of Del-Aire.
Dine is a former Peace Corps
volunteer, senatorial aide and
defense analyst. He has been the
Executive Director of AIPAC for
the past four years.
AIPAC is the only American
organization registered to lobby
in Congress directly on legisla-

AIPAC is not a "PAC," a

Dine said, "we're a movement, a
political factor, neither liberal nor
conservative, neither Democratic
nor Republican. We're the top of
the iceberg of the pro-Israel
community. American support
for Israel represents a proper and
unmanipulated outpouring of
genuine, society-wide apprecia-
tion of the shared values and
joint strategic interests of Israel
and the United States."
AIPAC's executive committee
includes the presidents of thirty-
eight major American Jewish
organizations claiming a
membership of 4.5 million, aa
Dine likes to remind legislators.
AIPAC itself has a national
membership of 40,000.
Dine is forthright in defense of
lobbying as a proper political
activity for the Jewish commu-
nity. He rejects the idea that
Jews should go on tiptoe in order
to avoid stirring up anti-
Semitism or overloading their
follow citizens' goodwill toward
Israel. He pointed out: "We must
also appreciate that overcaution
and reticence seem to validate the
canard that there is something
evil in Jewish political power."
Dine sees himself aa running
an "American organization" that
does not take sides in Israeli
politics but merely supports "the
elected Israeli government."

News in Brief
Kahane Identified as 'Spiritual Father' of Jewish Terrorist Group
University expert^ on terrorism
identified Rabbi Meir Kahane as
the "spiritual father" of a group
that has claimed responsibility
for the recent wave of bomb and
grenade attacks and attempted
attacks on Moslem and Christian
religious sites in the Jerusalem
area and on the West Bank.
But Prof. Ehud Sprinzak, of
the Political Science faculty, does
not believe Kahane is personally
involved with the group which
calls itself "Terror Against
Terror" (TNT). He said on a
radio interview over the weekend
that the type of weapons and
explosives used, all Israel army
issue, led him to believe that the
* perpetrators were regular soldiers
or reservists with military
training, not Arab provocateurs
as suggested in some circles.
"I am not saying Rabbi
Kahane is in any way involved
personally," Sprinzak said. "All I
can say is that he is their
spiritual father, his is the ideo-
logy they want to put into
Fahd, Mitterrand
Ponder Mideast Peace
PARIS King Fahd of Saudi
Arabia and President Francois
Mitterrand met Saturday for
what reportedly was a "joint
effort" to find a solution to the
Middle East crisis.
France is known to support the
Saudi Fez plan which calls for
negotiations with the Palestine
Liberation Organization in ex-
change for indirect recognition of
Israel by the Arab states. The
Fez plan was adopted at an Arab
summit conference in Morocco in
1982 shortly after President
Reagan announced his Mideast
' peace initiative.
It is generally believed that
Fahd asked France to adopt a
more balanced stance in
Lebanon, namely to stop sup-
porting the government of Presi-
dent Amin Gemayel and favor a
compromise solution between
(icmayel and Syria, the Moslems
and the Druze. The Saudis want
to end the fighting in Lebanon
and to obtain a withdrawal of all
Israeli forces.

Congress reported.
The statement was approved
ast Thursday by the caucus
known as "Religious NGO's" and
was incorporated into the annual
assessment of the work of the

group. According to the WJC
representatives at that meeting,

to a statement attributed to

Ibn Abdulaziz.
"That is not our understanding
of the Saudi position," Depart-
ment deputy spokesman Alan

tainly not what Crown Prince
Abdullah said in his Jan. 29
meeting with distinguished
American visitors to Saudi
Romberg added, "The Crown
Prince recognizes fully that a
U.S. withdrawal now would harm
the U.S. reputation and tarnish
that of its friends. Saudi Arabia
has told us that it supports the

Lebanon for the multinational

that remains the Saudi govern-
ment's position."

teacher, was killed when a hand

thrown into a crowd of Peace

Israel 'Regrets'
Chile's Refusal
JERUSALEM Israel has
expressed "profound regret" over
Chile's refusal of its request to
expel Nazi war criminal Walter
Rauff. A Justice Ministry
spokesman said Israel would
continue its efforts to secure
Rauff's expulsion or extradition
in order to bring to justice a man
responsible for the murder of at
least 250,000 Jews during World
War II.
David Kimche, director general
of the Foreign Ministry, made an
unannounced trip to Santiago to
press Israel's formal request that
Chile oust Rauff. He met with the
Chilean Foreign Minister, Jaime
Del Valle, apparently to no avail.
Del Valle announced that it
would be inappropriate to expel
the 77-year-old former SS Colonel
inasmuch as Chile's Supreme
Court had rejected a West
German request for his extra-
dition in 1963.
Justice Dep't. Seeks

Justice Department said it will
take legal action to deport an
alleged Nazi war criminal who

Israel Vows: No Assist to Gemayel
Israel will in no way
intervene in the crisis in
Lebanon or take any steps
to try to save the regime of
President Gemayel.
That was the consensus in
government circles here
following the resignation of
Prime Minister Shafiq
Wazzan and his Cabinet in
Beirut and the renewed
fighting there which has
put Gemayel's surviva-
bility in doubt.
Premier Yitzhak Shamir
appeared to confirm that Israel is
rapidly distancing itself from
Beirut and will concentrate from
now on only on the security of its
northern borders. Shamir was
quoted in a Maariv interview as
saying that there is no connection
between events in and around
Beirut and Israel's border
"IF WE can reach an un-
derstanding with the Lebanese
government, well and good. If
not, Israel can find its own way
to security arrangements in
southern Lebanon," Shamir told
Maariv. He denies press reports
that his Cabinet was "dismayed"
by the latest developments in
Beirut. The Cabinet heard a
report on the subject, but there
was no debate.
His remarks pointed to a total
reversal of Israel's policy toward
Lebanon when Ariel Sharon was
Defense Minister in the gover-
nment of former Premier Mena-
chem Begin. That policy aimed at
the establishment of a strong
central government in Beirut
friendly to Israel and bound to it
by the May 17, 1983 withdrawal
and security agreement, if not a
formal peace treaty.
I srael exerted considerable
political influence toward that
end but has now apparently
decided to steer clear of any
involvement in Lebanon's in-
ternal affairs.
VOICE OF Israel Radio said
that Israel is not consulting with
the U.S. on the latest Lebanese
crisis. The Reagan Adminis-
tration has not asked Israel to
use its influence in Lebanon to
save the Gemayel regime, the
radio report said.
According to Shamir, Israel
will continue its activities in
south Lebanon. "The aim of the
war (in Lebanon) was to ensure
our northern border. That aim
has been achieved. We are now
working out how to ensure that
border for a long time to come,"
Shamir told Maariv.
It is understood here that a
total withdrawal of Israeli forces
from south Lebanon is out of the
question. Were that to happen,
the shelling of Israeli towns and
villages in Galilee would be
resumed within hours, according
to the prevailing view here. The
only workable solution therefore
is to redeploy the Israel Defense
Force in the south.
NO PLAN has been an-
nounced. But according to one
version, the IDF would cease to
act as policemen in all of south
Lebanon but would pull back to
artillery range of the Israeli
border. This would allow it to

smaller Israeli military presence
in south Lebanon, minimizing the
danger of casualties.
To carry out such a plan would
require cooperation with the local
Druze and Shiite Moslems, the
latter comprising the bulk of the
population in the south. Israel
has been working for some time
to cultivate those groups and
reach an agreement whereby they
would bear responsibility for
local security.
In effect, such an arrangement
would annul the May 17
agreement with Beirut and lead
to friction with the Reagan
Administration which, at the
moment, seems determined to
save Gemayel, sources here said.

Confab to Mourn Loss of Hungarian Jewry
Forty years ago, the Germans took
over Hungary in the closing phase of the
Second World War. Adolph Eichmann
celebrated his 38th birthday in Budapest
on March 19,1944 occupation day. By
the end of the year the great majority of
Hungarian Jewry, 300,000 from
Hungary itself and 560,000 from the
annexed territories, had been deported
and annihilated.
THIS SKETCH was drawn by Zeev

West German media are
taking a critical look at the
government's plans to sell
advanced weaponry to
Saudi Arabia. National
television, which has been
consistently pro-Arab in
the Middle East conflict,
has demonstrated "under-
standing" of Israel's posi-
tion which is vigorously op-
posed to the arms deal.
Welt Am Sonntag, a weekly
friendly to the regime of Chan-
cellor Helmut Kohl, observed in
an editorial that while the transa-
ction with the Saudis will be
financially profitable, it will cost
Bonn international credit and
create image problems. The
Hamburger Abendblatt noted
pointedly in an editorial that
Kohl's visit to Israel last week
was widely viewed as an effort to
separate German responsibility
for the past from Germany's
current policies in the Middle
KOHL, who returned from his
five-day stay in Jerusalem, has
been put on the defense with
respect to the Saudi arms deal.
He declared on a television in-
terview that Bonn will not accept
a double standard on arms sales
to Middle Eastern countries
Such sales which are considered
legitimate for the United States
France and England, cannot
remain taboo for West Germany
alone, he said.
Kohl repeated, in numerous
interviews with the media while
in Isrel and on his return, that
there is no question of reneging
on the earlier promises made to
sell arms to Saudi Arabia. He
reiterated that such decisions are
made in Bonn, not Jerusalem.
Government sources concede
now that Israeli opposition to the
arms sales had been under-

Israeli government was not
properly informed in advance of
Germany's intentions with
respect to the arms sales.
"THEY SHOULD have known
beforehand," a top aide to Kohl
said, "that we did not come to
Jerusalem to change our decision
taken in Riyadh. Someone must
have given them the impression
that things were still open, and
we had a difficult time explaining
to them that this" was not the
case," the aide said.
That warning was given to the
Jerusalem correspondent of the
daily Die Welt and was widely
reported. Officials here note that
Shmuelevitz denied making the
remark (though later he acknowl-.
edged it but complained it was
taken out of context) but agreed
that arms deliveries to the Saudis
would be a highly sensitive issue
from the security point of view.

Steps Israel Must
Take to Beat
Economic Crisis
London Chronicle Syndicate
Israel today is facing a
crisis of confidence which in
some respects seems more
severe than those it has
overcome in the past. The
gloomy picture is one of a
rising probability of default
on external debt together
with domestic economic
tensions which could
conceivably spill over into
open conflict.
Critical choices lie ahead. The
reason is that the hard measures
usually indicated by inter-
national lenders for resolving
external debt problems can easily
increase the potential for
domestic strife: Brazil is a recent
case in point. To avoid default
while maintaining safe borders,
as well as domestic peace and
unity, will require of Israel and
its government a commitment to
a long-range program with clear
economic objectives, carried out
with justice, honesty, humanity
and equity.
ACHIEVING success will take
time and stamina. It will neces-
sitate the reversal of economic
processes which have gathered
momentum over the years and
which will be correspondingly
difficult to redirect.
Debt problems, recent expe-
rience has taught us, are not the
end of the world. When a country
expects to default on an interest
or principal payment, it will anti-
cipate the event by renegotiating
with its creditors. It will attempt
to persuade them to refinance
currently maturing loans with
long-term credits, possibly at
concessionary interest rates.
This roll-over has the effect of
reducing the periodic payments,

deficits make it necessary to
provide for further increases in
the total amount of debt out-
long-term credit must be
acquired, taking care to avoid an
unsustainable bunching of pay-

cooperate in this process because
they have few options. Countries
cannot be put into bankruptcy,
and there is no collateral to be
repossessed. The cost to
borrowers of defaulting is that
access to future credit may be
restricted and-or made subject to
onerous conditions by the len-

Rescheduling may be easier by

mercial lenders are currently
attempting to curtail any in-
crease in their commitments.
Any International Monetary
Fund financing is likely to be
offered, if at all, on politically
unacceptable conditions unless
accompanied by U.S. guarantees.
Israel may be able to obtain
sufficient U.S. support to avoid
imminent default. U.S. largesse,
however, is ultimately limited
and, in any case, should not be
tapped to the limit. The growth
of Israel's foreign debts cannot
be sustained much longer at the
rates of the past three years.
What ia it that needs to be done
to make Israel a bankable risk
once more?

Although 59 percent of American

The locus of the discussion was
how Jews can affect the issues as
voters when they comprise only
2.6 percent of the American
population and cast only four
percent of the vote. Bookbinder
noted that the Jewish vote "isn't
a homogenized* vote because it
can be 15 percent in a state like
New York which has a great deal
of importance for the can-
He recalled that in past
Presidential elections, the Jewish
vote varied sharply from 10
percent for Barry Goldwater in
1964 and Richard Nixon in 1968
and 1972 to 40 percent for
Reagan in 1980.
"The battle is on to get the
difference between 10 and 40 per-
cent This difference can be
totally critical' in states like New

California," he said.

voting for lawmakers on the
record of their support for Israel
alone. "If we fall into that trap,
we an? going to fall into a political
catastrophe for the Jewish
community. We are simply going
to end up being four percent of
the vote and with a four percent
of the vote you're not going to
get anywhere."
According to Perl, "We need to
build coalitions. We need to
involve ourselves as Americans
in the social fabric of this
country. We need to build
constituencies that can get 51
percent on issues we care about
strongly." In that connection, he
"When we work in dose

make up a majority."

low in Jewish emigration from
the Soviet Union last year,
maintained^ tgfct Moscow "is
becoming it..w impervious to
Western pressure with this
kind of Sxtkdrop of declining
emigration, increasing repression
against Jewish activists and on-
going cultural and religious
genocide, the question becomes
to what extent, if any, has the
American Administration been
responsible for that decline and
to what extent can it help reverse
that decline1/*' he said.
He stressed that the overall
relationship of the U.S. with the
Soviet Union "will loom large in
the minds of the voters, and
particularly in the minds of
American Jewish voters. Most
people seem to believe that the
Soviet-American relationship
does impact on the issue of Soviet
Harris added that "If the
Soviets planned the decline in
emigration, it was planned in
1978-79 under a Democratic
Administration and was con-
tinued under the Reagan
Administration. There may not
be that direct casuality between
the American Administration
and the plight of Soviet Jewry."
But. "Others would argue that
under the Reagan Adminis-
tration, the freezzing of a
relationship, the virtual cut-off of
dialogue, the increase in
polemics, the rhetoric, have only
made it worse for those Soviet
Jews seeking to emigrate,"
Harris stated.
Secretary of State George Shultz
raises the issue of Soviet Jews in
his contacts with Soviet leaders,
"why should the Soviets release
more Soviet Jews'-Why should
they do anything to improve the
chances of Ronald Reagan being
reelected President of the United
States'. V
Harris said that Walter
Mondale, the current front-
runner for the Democratic
nomination, and Senators Alan

records in support of Soviet

According to Harris, "What
we must insure is that we in our
Jewish community convey ef-
fectively and articulately to our
candidates that the issue of
Soviet Jewry is indeed a primary
issue on our agenda."
BOOKBINDER said that
"Jews divide across the
political) spectrum ... A recent
scientific poll of Jewish attitudes
in America showed that 36
percent accept the label liberal,'
38 percent describe themselves as
middle-of-the-road' and 23
percent describe themselves as
conservative- ."
He said. "There is a perception
that Jews vote as a bloc and that
the Israel issue united all Jews.
But even experts disagree on
whether their great commitment
to Israel has led Jews to a certain
kind of voting."
Bookbinder added "If it's a
Rcagan-Mondale race in Novem-
ber, it will be a stand-off for most
American Jews on the Middle
East issue because we will have
done our job we will have seen

Heinz Galinski, chairman of
the Jewish community in West
Berlin, joined in the criticism of
the Chancellor. He said he was
shocked by some of the remarks
made by Kohl's aides during the
Israel visit which he found
lacking in tact and constraint.
CDU conceded that the intensity
of Israel's opposition to the Saudi
arms deal was underestimated
before Kohl went to Jerusalem.
Bonn is waiting for a detailed
exposition of the Israeli objec-
tions which, top government
officials have promised, will
receive careful consideration. But
according to Kohl's aides, this
might influence the scope of the
arms sales but will not alter the
government's determination to
go ahead with the deal.
Government sources have also
confirmed that, reports to the
contrary notwithstanding, the
Saudi shopping list has already
been received here, though nego-
tiations over specific items have
yet to begin.
Israeli diplomats say there is
no question of negotiation with
West Germany over which
specific items they consider
"especially dangerous."
Jerusalem is against the deal on
moral grounds, and that was
made perfectly clear to the
Chancellor at his meetings with
Israeli leaders, the diplomats say.
newspapers here are speculating
that the Israelis will mute their
opposition if they are offered
appropriate compensation
meaning German military hard-
ware. The Israelis vigorously
deny this, but it is assumed that
German arms sales to Israel,
hitherto embargoed, will go
through provided that it i. >ne
discreetly and without publicly.
In that event, however, the
government will run into a strong
opposition from the SPD. Ob-
servers say it would be impos-
sible for Kohl to undertake secret
arms sales to Israel without prior
consultation with the opposition

Study Backs Cutting Cholesterol to Curb Heart Disease Risk

researchers today announced "the first
study to demonstrate conclusively"
that towering cholesterol levels In the
bloodstream reduced the rate of heart

The participating scientists sug-

that lowering of cholesterol through
diet would also be beneficial.

in the group treated with diet only. The
drug produced an even sharper reduc-
tion in low density lipoprotein choles-
terol, the type particularly associated
with coronary heart disease
Although this drop in cholesterol
levels was less than the scientists had
expected, it produced a significant
drop in coronary heart disease, said
Robert 1. Levy, vice president for
health science at Columbia University,
one of the scientists speaking at the
news conference today at the National
Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.
The group treated with the drug ex-
perienced only 155 coronary heart
deaths and nonfaul heart attacks, well
below the 1S7 recorded in the compan
son group The drug produced a 24 per
cent reduction in coronary heart deaths
and a 19 percent reduction in nonfatal
heart attacks.
As a rule of thumb, the investigators
said, each 1 percent fall in cholesterol
was associated with a 2 percent reduc-
ttonin the rate of coronary heart The drug treatment also cut the inci
dance of angina pectons heart pain
by 20percent, ol coronary artery by
Ksurgery by 21 percent, and of poor
: performance after an exercise
The scientists said they found no de-
bilitating side effects from the drag.

Joint Breakfast Hailed As Success
For the first time in the history
of both Temple Emeth and
Temple Sinai, a joint UJA-
Federation breakfast was held on
The breakfast was held in
honor of Leona and Abe
Eisenstein of Temple Emeth and
Beatrice and Sidney Pearce of
Temple Sinai. A crowd of about
250 was on hand to pay homage
to two extraordinary couples who
have spent their lifetimes
working for the Jewish people.
Guest speaker Harvey
Grossman, Campaign Director of
South County Jewish Federation,
addressed the question of
"unity" and in what manner the
Jews of South Palm Beach
County could demonstrate it.
Personal experiences of the time
Grossman lived in Israel were
relayed to the large group.
In addition, Benjamin Bussin,
Chairman for the newly-created
Family Division, touched on local
services available to South
County residents and stressed
the importance of each individual
gift donated to the Federation.
On hand at the fundraising
breakfast were other Federation
dignitaries. They included

most of his adult life in what he
calls the "historic adventure of
saving Jewish lives and rebuild-
ing the Jewish homeland.
While travelling through
Europe more than 20 years ago,
he became involved in a clan-
destine operation smuggling
Jews out of North Africa into

"I am proud and enthusiastic
to assume a leadership position
on the Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee." said Mica. "I have spent
many hours over the last five
years studying issues of foreign
policy, conferring with leaders
from all over the world, weighing
the most delicate questions of
diplomacy and clarifying our
national interest in a hundred
different situations as a member
of the Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee. I am prepared now to
chair this distinguished Sub-
committee in matters relating to
the Department of State, our
embassies, our international
information networks. I am
prepared and I am delighted."
Mica, who has served on the
Foreign Affairs Committee since
he was first elected to Congress
in 1979, has been a member of
five FAC Subcommittees during
that time. In addition to Interna-
tional Operations, he has served
on the Subcommittees on
International Security and
Scientific Affairs, Asian and
Pacific Affairs, Western Hw"-
phere Affairs, and International
Economic Policy and Trade.
"Fortunately, I'll also be able
to keep my position as Ranking
Democrat on the International
Economic Policy and Trade
Subcommittee," said Mica.
"International trade issues are of
great importance to me and to
our State. I am extremely in-
terested in the work of both of
these Subcommittees."
"Frankly, every Member of
Congress hopes for opportunities
like these. I will have greater
latitude and ability to be effective
to bring about change where it
is necessary. It's a privilege, it's
a great responsibility. I'm ready
for it."
Mica said that his agenda for
the Subcommittee is still un-
charted. "I have been Chairman
for exactly fifteen minutes, so I
haven't made those decisions yet.
The only thing I can say with
certainty is that I will follow
through on issues undertaken by
my predecessor, Chairman

This spending is extremely
hard to reduce. While a large part
has been and is probably financed
by foreign grants (data are not
available), there is no doubt a
substantial fraction that remains
to be covered by domestic taxes
and current foreign borrowing.
To keep the latter within reason-
able bounds, borrowing abroad
for other purposes, such as
consumption imports, should be,
and should have been, curtailed.
has had at least three years of
economic mismanagement. The
war in Lebanon was prepared and
waged without any increase in
taxes or reduction in living
standards. On the contrary,
duties on imported consumer
durables were reduced, and the
shekel was overvalued, making
imports cheaper. The nation went
on a consumer spending spree
which was accelerated by fears
that the duties would be reim-
posed and the shekel would be
Efforts to cut government
spending for non-defense pur-
poses largely failed. These are
and will be hard to achieve.
The main beneficiaries of many
programs are the Sephardic poor,
the special constituency of the
present government. In addition,
Israel's coalition system allocates
ministries to minority members.
It would be natural were min-
istries to tend to represent special
political or economic interests.
Ministry budgets are conse-
quently fiercely fought over the
defended, never more so than in
the recent past. The govern-
ment's deficits have therefore
burgeoned. Taxes have not been
raised. Instead, money has been
printed and inflation has reached
three-digit levels.
REVERSING these processes
will cause great hardship and
potential conflict. Raising taxes
is the main instrument for
reducing consurojjtoon in free
economies. Above ^certain level,
however, taxation-reduces the
incentive to iiiiuM| In Israel,
furthermore, it ia important for
national unity that the poor not
be penalized and-that the tax
burden be fairly distributed.
It is not clear that fairness can
be achieved until the problem of
widespread tax avoidance by the
self-employed can be resolved.
More critical, however, is the
question whether taxes can be
raised without first addressing
the fundamental causes of
Israel's declining productivity.
The issue is complex. It ia
exacerbated by the need for army
reserve duty, which depletes the
economy of critical skills and
manpower. One senses, in addi-
tion, a deterioration in the work
ethic, in musar ha'avoda.
THIS SURELY is more a
subject for social than economic
analysis: more than the effects of
military service and taxes is at
work. It is partly due to the
consumption and speculative
frenzies of the recent past and
can hopefully be reversed. There
ia, however, one major contrib-
uting factor which can be ident-
ified. This is, in my view, the
dominance of the public sector.
The public sector, including
the regular army, the civil service
and the employees of government
and Histadrut enterprises, ac-
counts for more than half of
Israel's work force. There ap-
pears to be much disguised
unemployment in the public
sector outside the military and
arms industry: unresponsive,
tenured civil servants for whom
there is either not enough, or no
incentive to, work; layers of
untrained management ap-
pointed as a result of political
patronage; and as a consequence
public-sector work habits which
provide a bad example and a visi-
ble drain on tax revenues.
To remedy this situation,
publicly-owned enterprises
should be sold off. Of course, care
should be taken not to replace
public inefficiency with private1
monopoly: this would lead to
distortions of a different kind.
The civil service must also be cut.
These steps taken, productivity
gains cannot fail to ensue.
FURTHER productivity gains
are to be obtained from dis-
mantling Israel's system of sub-
sidies and administered incentive
schemes. Except in rare cases,
these distort market mechanisms
and redirect effort inefficiently.
Finally, but not least important,
mismanagement of the exchange
rate must stop.
Continued over-valuation
could destroy Israel's export-
oriented industries: under-
valuation, on the other land,
merely subsidizes inefficient
producers. Setting the exchange
rate is best left to free market
forces. It is practically impossible
for governments to set exchange
rates without also imposing
exchange controls. These, in
Israel and elsewhere, are an open
invitation to avoidance and to
speculation when devaluations
finally occur.
The road back to external
solvency is strewn with ob-
stacles. Government budgets
must be balanced. Taxes must be
raised and consumption reduced.
Above all, productivity trends
must be reversed. This will
require reduced government
intervention and participation in
productive activity. Recent
history teaches that governments
generally fail at the task of
economic management. It is a
lesson that Israel cannot afford
much longer to ignore.
The United Jewish Appeal
collected $326.5 million in
cash in calendar year 1983
to set a new peacetime
record, UJA national cash
chairman Bernard Borine

campaigning communities
nationwide, is $1.5 million more
than was projected for the year
by American campaign leaders

beneficiary of UJA-Community
campaign last February,
Borine said.
"Despite difficult economic
conditions created by cutbacks in
federal and state spending for
social welfare programs in
communities, American Jewry
once again has responded with
generosity and compassion to the
ongoing needs of the world
Jewish family," Borine said.
"This remarkable performance
demonstrates our enduring
commitment to the quality and
continuity of Jewish life
everywhere it exists."
A TOTAL of $67.9 million has
been pledged to the Special Fund
to date to help provide additional
support for civilian social welfare,
education and health programs
and services threatened by
reductions or curtailment in the
economic wake of the Galilee
operation. Cash collected in 1983
included $19 million earmarked
for the Israel Special Fund,
Borine said.

total includes $283 million for the

"With a combined system
rather than two separate ones,

added. It will also be less ex-
pensive to produce, since the new
system requires cheaper
packaging, which makes up one
third of the production cost of all
solar systems.
Although it is in the ex-
perimental stages, Prof.
Braunstein says he is certain that
within five to ten years, the new
system will be in use in Israel and
other countries.
New Solar Collector
Prof. Mordechai Sokolov, who
together with engineering
graduate student Moshe
VYaxman, invented the Low-Cost
Solar Collector, believes their
new system will substantially cut
the costs of solar heating.
Planned for household and in-
dustrial use, the new collector
provides a compact water-
heating device for rooftops.
Also known as the Compact
Integral Unit, the collector
resembles the regular roof solar
system but does not have a
separate storage tank next to it.
Bather, it has its own inbuilt
storing system. Besides being
more aesthetic, it is also up to 40
percent more effective than
existing water-heating systems
in Israel.
"To avoid high costs and still
have a convenient household
solar system, we developed the
low-cost collector, which is more
suited to mass production and
therefore will be cheaper," Prof.
Sokolov explained.

cruel night." He said the election
last October of Alfonsin, a
candidate representing the
Radical Civic Union, was "a
heartening development." He
suggested that the elections and
change to a democratic pluralistic
society in Argentina would mark
a significant change in the
history of Latin America.
ON THE issue of anti-
Semitism in Argentina, which the
previous military junta did little
to combat, Meyer stressed that
the Alfonsin government will do
its utmost to assure the Jewish
community that anti-Semitism is
not government policy. He noted
the presence of Jews within the
new government.
"That there is no anti-
Semitism in Argentina I am not
prepared to say," Meyer
declared. "Of course there is anti-
Semitism in Argentina just as
there is in the United States."
But the major difference be-
tween the previous Argentine
junta and the newly elected
reminent, Meyer said, is that,
example, if vandals now
commit an anti-Semitic attack
against s synagogue, they will be
tracked down and apprehended,
and punished according to the
laws of the state. "This was not
true in the past," he said.
Meyer is in the U.S. at-
tempting to contact former
Argentinians who fled the
country during the reign of terror
by rightwing groups to gather
new information for usage by the
commission in its investigations
He noted that there are an
estimated 66,000 former
Argentinians living in the New
York area.

it was obvious that if someone
bought a Nazi uniform he had the
right to wear it.
"So I put on a brown shirt and
worked with these terrible men.
Like I had seen the pogroms in
Russia, I saw the mob in Berlin."
WHEN, a little later, many of
the Berlin Jews were put into a
barracks in the city, the Jewish
community asked V ishniac to get
inside to photograph the condi-
tions in which they were kept, the
pictures intended for the Amer-
ican representative at the League
of Nations in Geneva.
"It was not difficult to get in,"
said Vishniac. "Or to take the
pictures. The hard part was to
get out.
"So I had to jump from the
second floor (what we would call
the first floor) at the back of the
barracks, and I didn't know
whether I was going to land on
earth, concrete or wood. I jumped
anyway, and after several hours I
could creep away. The pictures
got to Geneva."
His speech is fluent, rapid,
carrying the authority of a man
accustomed to the lecture plat-
form, the urgency of a man in a
hurry to communicate. But the
language itself is strange,
bearing traces of Russian and
German constructions.

enough ago to have served first in
the army of the Tsar and then in
the army of Trotsky. His family
lived in Moscow, where they

How the family got to Moscow
is a story of Jews adrift on the
cross-currents of social history.
"We were in Moscow because of
things that happened in the time
of my grandfather," he said. "In
1869, the Russian manufacturers
asked the government to permit
100 Jews to come to Moscow to
be the middle-men between the
manufacturers and the big
Jewish population who lived in
the Pale of Settlement close to
the border.
"For the Jews there bought
everything from the Germans
because the German salesmen did
not despise the Jews. And as the
Germans brought the stuff over
the hills to the Jewish villages,
there were no taxes to pay.
"So permission was given to
bring 100 of what they called
'Jews of the better kind' to
Moscow," he explained. "And
when the messenger from the
government came to Belz, wher-
my grandfather lived, and asked,
Who are the better Jews?', the
better Jews, in Jewish eyes, were
those who were talmudic
"Now, my grandfather was no
good as a salesman, but he was
very famous as a speaker after
the service, and it was unknown
for what purpose the 'better' Jew
had been chosen to live in
Moscow. So he was brought to
Moscow, to the ghetto there, and
the children had the right,
through payment of 1,000 roubles
a year, to open businesses in
HE REMEMBERS how every
Jewish family in Moscow had a
couch for illegal immigrants to
the city. The police made regular
searches for them, but 25 roubles
a week to the officer in charge
nsured that the community was
lotified in advance.
Once, though, Vishniac recalls,
the regular policeman was away,
and his replacement ordered an
unheralded raid. It was a great
tragedy. Many Jews were
arrested, and it cost! the Umbrella
King 2,000 roubles in bribes to
get them released; otherwise they
would have been sent to Siberia.
"Bribery," said Vishniac, "was
the only way to make life a little
Roman Vishniac
easier, not only in Russia, but in
Germany and France and many
other places. It didn't help in the
time of Hitler, but in the so-called
normal times it was the usual
thing to do.
"I remember paying a large
amount of money in France so
that there should not be disturb-
ances and harassment of Jews
during Yom Kippur. That was
just before the war."
BRIBERY WAS a way of life.
He used it to make his peace with
his captors during his pre-war
photography trips when the
police would call him a Jewish
spy and develop his films to find
evidence, though all they ever
found were pictures of Jews.
The police dark room
technicians were not interested in
artistry and took no care in
developing his photographs. "So
I have had to bleach the nega-
tives and redevelop them, and it
is almost a miracle that I can
make large prints," said
"The quality has to be good,
otherwise people will not accept
them. Somehow I understood
that 50 years ago, and so I tried
to make compositions.
"You can only be influential
through art. A common photo-
grap such as you see in news-
papers, something without
expression, would be no good. I
had to show not only the face, but
the soul, to show the people of the
shtetl and how they resisted, not
by violence or force, but by rel-
igious belief, by their belief that
all Jews are brothers, hoi yisroel

"If a man died, the widow and

there was only one room in a

"MY FRIENDS, pupils, fol-
lowers, have been to the places
where I took my pictures, and
they have taken their own photo-
graphs of how they look today. I
cried when I saw them. There
were no Jews left, and everything
looked sad, sad."
Where would he go today if he
were a young man with a camera?
"Russia," he said, "but it's
very difficult to photograph
there. They bring photographs of
Jews out of Russia, but they are
boring, pictures of old people
sitting in the synagogue or in
private houses where they are not
afraid to have their pictures
taken. They don't photograph
the events in the street and
cannot photograph what goes on
in the police office.
"But I cannot say that I would
bring out any better pictures."
Of all the stories Vishniac tells,
nothing is stranger than his
account of the disappearance of
thousands of pictures he
smuggled from France to
America in 1940.
"I had taken about 16,000
pictures. All but 2,000 were taken
by brute force in New York. They
were pictures of the places where
there were many Jews Poland,
Rumania, Czechoslovakia,
Bohemia, Moravia how they
looked, how they lived.
"They were stolen by people,
bad people, who wanted to
destroy the pictures or at least
didn't want them to be shown.
They wanted a complete
assimilation of Jews in the
American kettle (melting pot?)."
WAS HE seriously saying that
it was Jewish assimilationists
who took them in New York?
"It was Jews, because they
didn't want these pictures to be
seen. There are good Jews, and
there are bad Jews. Two Mafia
men came with guns. They had
been promised $5,000 each for
killing me. I was lucky to be able
to convince them I would pay
more for not being killed."
HIS NEXT book will have
fewer photographs, about 100,
but more text "interesting
stories," he said, "about the
people of the shtetL "
He is an old man, isn't it time
he slowed down?
"Age 87 is the time to speed
up; who knows what tomorrow
will bring?"
Could they not

"Germans? In New York in
1944? No, these were Jews. There
are no doubts. The pictures were
never published, and I can't
prove anything. But I'm still
offering big reward money for
their recovery, $10,000 for the
pictures, $150,000 for the film."
Beth El Hosts Most Successful
Bond Event In History
On Feb. 5, Temple Beth El of
Boca Raton and the State of
Israel Bond Organization
honored Norman and Betty
Stone at an elegant dinner. The
Stones received the Lion of
Judah award for their out-
standing work in the Jewish
Edward Bobick, Chairman,
was pleased to announce that the
Temple raised approximately
$1,400,000 in bond sales with
additional pledges expected. "It
was certainly the most successful
bond event in the history of
Temple Beth El," said Bobick.
News commentator, Barry
Farber, flew in from New York to
address the audience. In a fast-
moving speech, peppered with
humor and spiced with Yiddish,
Farber spoke about "the Jews of
Comfort and the Jews of Conflict.
Any Bar or Bat Mitzvah who
doesn't know that we are the
Jews of Comfort should have
their certificate revoked," said
Farber. He went on to emphasize
that the Jews of Comfort need
only lend money to Israel to
"keep that life line open." And,
lend they did!
One major purchase of
$250,000 came from the Star of
David Cemetery of Broward
County. Douglas Kinzer and
Philip Weinstein of Star of David
announced their pledge as the
crowd applauded enthu-
Bert Sales, Florida Manager of
the Israel Bond organization,
attended the dinner his last
Beth El function before retire-
ment. Addressing the group he
said, "It does my heart good to
have witnessed the most success-
ful Beth El bond campaign ever.
It is because your committee
worked hard that you achieved
such outstanding results. The
Stones are truly deserving
honorees and on behalf of the
State of Israel we thank you for
the generous purchases."
Due to the efforts of Ella
Samuels the room looked regal
and warm with table decorations
done in blue and white. On each
table a cascade of white balloons,
hand-painted in blue with the
message "Chai and To Life,"
heralded the celebration of
Israel's 36th year.
Dr. and Mrs. Chayim Singer
handled the catering arrange-
ments. Richard Samuels did a
monumental job handling the
reservations and bookkeeping for
the capacity crowd. The following
committee members had "worked
diligently for six months hard
work that reaped wonderful
results: Marianne Bobick, Shelly
Booth, David and Ethel Custage,
Herb and Barbara Gimelstob,
Harvey Grossman, Ida Herst,
Dr. Michael Leinwand, Rita
Leventhal, Jack and Rose
Present, Alan and Phyllis
Weiner, Al Schiff, Bill Davis and
Marianne Roberts.
As four generations of Stones
beamed with pride, the added-
surprise of the evening was a
three-tier cake, decorated with
sparklers, in honor of Norman
Stone's 70th birthday.
Edward Bobick ended the
evening by saying, "1 feel nine
feet tall tonight. The spectacular
results of this evening will set a
new standard for Temple Beth El
und Israel Bonds."

IA Rabbi
B'nai Torah Sets New Adult Education Courses
Rabbi Nathan Zelizer
The most frequent question that I have been asked in the
course of my career as a Rabbi has been "Why me? What
have I done to deserve this?" In anguish and affliction, in time
of despair and trouble, individuals have, are and will continue to
ask "Why me?". I would like to share some of my answers to
this question. There are many instances in life which prompt us
to ask this question. A little child rides her bicycle out unto the
street and gets killed by a car. A mother, who was helping her
son deliver papers, because it was a rainy day, slams on her
brakes, skids on a wet pavement, hits a little child and kills her.
Why? So often people will say "it is the will of God?" No!
Suffering, death, sickness, war and destruction are not the
will of God. Joy, health and life are His will. Some say that God
will cause suffering to bring about some good. Good does not
come from evil. I do not believe that the end justifies the means.
Man does not need tragedy and affliction to make .us more
courageous. To say that "God has taken our beloved" implies
that God kills people. No, God does not afflict us with premature
A child is afflicted with lockjaw. Did God put a germ on the
edge of a rusty can and that He brought the boy and the rusty
can together, or that God had the boy step on a rusty nail? What
lesson is so important, what sins did the boy commit, that he
must be punished this way? Shall we blame God if a child is not
injected with vaccine and contracts polio? It is nonsense to
blame this on God! Who would want to believe in such a sadistic
God? Not me!
There are many answers to these questions, all beginning with
"why." Here are some answers.
Creation is composed of many things and of many endless
interactions. Microbes, and germs and viruses are all part of
(.(id s creation. Fencillin and viruses are all part of God's crea-
tures and creation. The germs and viruses will bring death to
some people; to others it will bring healing. When I catch a cold,
it would be silly for me to cry out "It is God's will that I am
atflicled!". No, 1 was in the wrong place at the right time or in
the right place at the wrong time!".
Had things happen because of man's limitations. Man, the
liible tells us, is given dominion over God's creatures. That is
why (Jod created man on Friday. But, because of war, hatred,
ignorance, we are still in a very primitive state. How many
Kinsleins, Salks and Sabins did man kill in the Holocaust? An
airplane crashes not that God willed it but because man
did not build better safety valves. The answer to cancer is on
this earth but man is too busy to look for it. So many tragedies
happen because of man's wickedness and because, as we are told
in Km id us man worships the Golden Calf, instead of wor-
shipping the God of the universe.
Let us not blame God. Instead, let us pray to Him for the time
when man will discover the secrets that He has put into the
universe tor man to find. God is waiting for man to come closer
to Him and resolve his wickedness and his limitations to build a
belter world. Man is God's partner in the perfection of this world
in which creation is a continuous process. If, in the meantime,
lite is broken and sundered, we should turn to God to assist us in
putting life together again.
W c need God, Whom we can trust and love and throw our-
wives upon Him. God's mercy is unending. His love for us is
limitless if we could only turn to Him instead of the Golden Calf.
This is the reason why we go to Shul and pray to Him for the
day when man will stop "walking thru the valley of the shadow
of death" and stubbornly remain ignorant and squander his
unlimited potential, that He has placed in man when He created
him in 11 is own image.
Cabinet Agrees Stronger Measures
% Needed to Contain Terrorism
The Cabinet has agreed
unanimously on stronger
measures to maintain law
and order in the occupied
territories and immediately
drew a skeptical response
from Jewish settlers.
B'nai Torah Congregation will
begin the Spring Session of its
Adult Education Program on
Feb. 27. All classes and seminar
lectures will be held at the
Congregation, 1401 NW 4th
Ave., Boca Raton.
The courses will continue the
previously successful Beginners
Siddur Hebrew, the Hebrew
Ulpan and the Cantillation
classes. In addition, three new
courses will be offered. The first,
of seasonal importance, will
examine the Mishna Megillah,
covering the laws and traditions
of Purim celebration. The second
class. The Weekday Morning
Service, will concentrate on how
to "daven" the weekday morning
liturgy. There is a Hebrew
reading prerequisite for this
course. The third new course is an
insightful five-part lecture series,

structors and lecturers follows:

The "Guidelines for imposing
law and order in Judaea, Samaria
and Gaza" make it clear that only
"the security branches" will deal
with and impose law and order in
r those territories, and no others
i^ould be allowed to act. Anyone
\ who violates that directive will be
punished, the Cabinet resolution
stated. This appeared to be an
obhque warning that the govern-
ment will not tolerate vigil-
anteism on the part of the Jewish
mised that harsher measures
would be taken against anyone
throwing stones or Molotov
cocktails at Israeli military
personnel or civilians, a warning
aimed primarily at Arabs, Israeli
security forces in the territories
will be strengthened, the Cabinet
Spokesmen for Jewish settle-
ments in the territories said there
was nothing new in the Cabinet's
decision. The question remains
how it will be implemented in
practice, they said. They wanted
to know what measures will be
taken to impose law and order
and what means of self-defense
the settlers will be allowed.
They demanded that a
definition of "self-defense" be
incorporated in the guidelines.
According to the settlers,
existing directives on the use of
fire arms by the settlers are

Adult Education courses is open
to all. Mrs. Elissa Grynspan,
Director of the Adult Education
Program, noted that the two
previous series of courses in the

expect the coming series will be
equally sensational," she said.
"Prospective students who have
questions about the program or
who would like a brochure should
call B'nai Torah Congregation
office at 392-8566."

Arab Support of Jackson
Further Alienates Jewish Voters
resentatives of leading American
Jewish organizations indicate
that the disclosure that two
organizations the Rev. Jesse
Jackson is affiliated with had
received contributions totalling
$200,000 from the Arab League
may further alienate Jewish
voters from Jackson's Demo-
cratic Presidential campaign.
"A man is known by the
company he keeps," said Julius
Herman, the chairman of the
Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Organizations. "And a candidate
is known by those who are
numbered among his major
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
president of the Union of
American Hebrew Congre-
gations, said. "I believe that
many American Jews, already
worried about Jesse Jackson's
links with the Arab world, will
now feel increased concern over
his Presidential candidacy."
ident of the Zionist Organization
of America, described as "double
speak'' Jackson's reported
statement regarding the "double
standard" which he claimed
existed in evaluating con-
tributions from American Jews
to a political candidate.
Questions concerning con-
tributions to PUSH, the umbrella
organization containing five civil
rights groups, were raised on
Sunday. An attorney rep-
resenting PUSH, an acronymn
for People United to Serve
Humanity, confirmed that the
Arab League had contributed
$100,000 each to PUSH for
Excellence, Inc., an educational
arm of PUSH, and the PUSH
Foundation, a fund-raising group
for PUSH affiliates.
The contributions to the two
organizations were made in 1961-
1982 when Jackson was head of
Push for Excellence, Inc. Clovis
Maksoud, the permanent ob-
server for the Arab League at the
United Nations, said that the two
checks for $100,000 each were
sent as a "humanitarian contri-
bution. The Internal Revenue
Service supports that position.
Maksoud said the Arab League
had checked with the Justice
Department to make certain that
such a contribution did not
violate U.S. law.
Jackson's attorney, John
Bustamante ot Cleveland, who
represents PUSH organizations,
told a news conference that the
contributions were solicited as
part of a broad fund-raising effort
from "all ambassadors" listed in
the "diplomatic blue book."
Jackson has maintained he had
no knowledge of the con-
tributions to the PUSH Foun-
dation or PUSH for Excellence.
He was quoted as saying he
would again accept a similar
donation "if it's legal and there's
no bind and there's no un-
derstanding or obligation and it's
given for stated purposes."
BUSTAMANTE criticized
media reports about the con-
tribution, saying they were part
of "an ongoing attempt to in-
fluence the public to view gifts
from Arab sources as somehow
more different and more
questionable from other sour-
ces." Jackson took a leave of
absence from his position as head
of PUSH for Excellence while he
seeks the Democratic Presi-
dential nomination.
In 1979, Jackson accepted a
donation for PUSH from the
Libyan government for 910,000.
Bustamante acknowledged that
the PUSH Foundation had also
received an anonymous donation
of $350,000 which he said
originated through a wire
transfer to the Foundation.
Bustamante said he did not know
the date of the anonymous
Jackson has come under fire
from Jewish groups in the past,
most notably for his public
embrace of PLO chief Yasir
Arafat during a trip by Jackson
to the Middle East several years
ago, and for a series of
statements attributed to him
critical of Zionism and a
statement that he was sick and
tired of hearing about the
South Palm Beach Coun-
ty's only Jewish funeral
home, is expanding its
pre-need counseling staff
due to tremendous
growth and sucess.

Jewish community, have
a neat appearance, are

people, we can offer you
professional training
