Jobless Rate to Rise
If Austerity Is To Help Ease Crisis
London Chronicle Syndicate
Israel has informed the
United States that unemp-
loyment in Israel may have
to increase in 1984 and 1985
from last year's 4.5 percent
to seven percent as a result
of the latest austerity
measures designed to ease
the economic crisis.
But Israeli officials have made
clear to the Reagan Administra-
tion that they will not permit
unemployment to go beyond this
7 percent level considered by
Jerusalem to be "the maximum
socially tolerable rate under
Israel's special circumstances."
This was revealed by well-
informed sources in Washington
as the Reagan Administration
released a $15.2 billion foreign aid
budget for the 1985 fiscal year. Of
that total, Israel is slated to
receive the largest individual
share: $1.4 billion in military
grants plus another $850 million
in economic grants.
FOR THE first time, the entire
U.S. aid package for Israel has
been provided as an outright
grant with no repayment
But. as widely expected, the
$850 million economic figure is
less than the $910 million ap-
proved last year by Congress and
the $1.3 billion requested by
Israel in discussions in recent
months. Israeli officials and their
supporters on Capitol Hill have
already indicated that they will
try to increase that amount
during the upcoming legislative
review of the bill.

AT A State Department
briefing, senior U.S. officials told
reporters that the decision to
convert all U.S. assistance to
Israel into grants as opposed
to providing about half in loans
as has generally been the case in
the past should go a long way
in improving Israel's standing on
the international commercial
credit markets.
Under Secretary for Economic
Affairs William Schneider said
Israel would still be required to
seek additional loans from in-
ternational commercial lenders.
But. he added, they could now be
expected to lower their requested
interest rates for such Israeli
What has worried these
bankers, he said, was Israel's
external debt $22.5 billion
right now and growing. Israel, by
far, has the highest per capita
debt among Western countries.
Because Israel no longer needs
to accept additional loans from
the U.S. Government and
thereby go further into debt,
Schneider said, these lenders
might now be willing to extend
credit to Israel on more favorable
terms. "This is very good for the
Israelis," he said.
DURING THE course of the
Feb. 1 hearing, the Adminis-
tration made clear it is expecting
the Israeli Government to take
further painful steps to try
resolve the economic crisis.
State Department officials said
the recent Israeli belt-tightening
measures were a useful "first
step," bu that considerably more
difficult measures were going to
have to be adopted to get Israel's
economy back on track.
Pelletreau said increasing U.S.
economic aid to Israel to a higher
level "while it would be welcomed
by Israel because every dollar
helps, is not going to get at the
basic problems that beset the
Israeli economy. What is needed

Boecker, who participated in
the U.S.-Israel economic dialogue
in Washington in late January,
said Israel's basic problem is that
it is living beyond its means.
Israeli governmental and private
expenditures, he said, are simply
too high.
Israeli officials are the first to
recognize these problems. But
resolving them is not easy or
without pain.

ROME Deputy Prime Mini-

becked off sharply from recent
statements by Prime Minister
Felipe Gonzales who indicated at
a meeting of the European Par-

that Spain plans soon to
establish diplomatic relations
with Israel.
"At the present moment,

Marine in Lebanon
Flown to Rambam
TEL AVIV An American
Marine from the U.S. aircraft
carrier Independence was flown
to Rambam Hospital in Haifa
over the weekend for extensive
tests and diagnosis of an undis-
closed illness. He was subse-
quently taken by ambulance to
Ben Gurion Airport from where
he was flown to an American
hospital in Europe. The Indepen-
dence is with the Sixth Fleet off
the Lebanese coast.
The Marine, who was not
identified by name or rank, is the
first U.S. military personnel from
the American forces stationed in
Beirut or offshore Lebanon to
utilize hospital facilities in Israel.
The refusal of the american
military to accept Israel's offer of
hospital facilities for the U.S.
servicemen injured in the bomb
attack on Marine headquarters in
Beirut lasst Oct. 23 created
friction between the two coun-
tries and furor in the U.S. Con-
gress at the time.
Attorney General
Defends Karp Report
General Yitzhak Zamir has flatly

Yehudit Karp, had distorted the
facts in her report on law enforce-

territories. He edenied speci-

Jewish vigilantism going un-
punished was politically
Zamir appeared before a joint
meeting of the Knesset's Legal
Committee and its State Control
Committee. The two panels con-
vened to discuss the Karp report
which aroused a fierce outcry
from Jewish settlers on the West
Bank when it was released by the
government last week. The
police, too, did not take kindly to
Karp's findings that law enforce-
ment in the territories was ham-
pered by poor police work,
although they agreed with the
Deputy Attorney General that
they were short of manpower.
State Dep't. Report
Faults Israeli Policy
Department, in its annual report
on human rights practices around
the world, repeats its assertion
that Israel's main human rights
problem is due to its control of
the West Bank and Gaza Strip
and the situation is made worse
by the policy of establishing
Jewish settlements there.
"The essential fact is that
Israel is governed democratically
and the West Bank is not,"
Elliott Abrams, Assistant Sec-
retary of State for Human Rights
and Humanitarian Affairs, said
Friday at a press conference
releasing the State Department's
eighth annual country reports on
human rights practices. The
1,485-page report which covers
conditions in 163 countries
during 1983 was submitted to the
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee and the House
Foreign Affairs Committee.
Man Charged in
Qrunzweig Murder
Avrushmi, a 28-year-old resident
of Jerusalem and the West Bank,
was formally charged Friday
with willful murder in the
grenade slaying a year ago of
Peace Now activist Emil Grun-
The charge sheet, presented in
Jerusalem District Court exactly
one year after the killing, alleges
that Avrushmi purchased an
Israel army issue hand grenade in
January, 1983 and, on the night
of Feb. 10, 1983, positioned
himself on a hill overlooking the
Prime Minister's Office and there
awaited the arrival of a proces-
sion of Peace Now marchers who
were scheduled to demonstrate
outside the office.
At 8:50 p.m., as the demon-
strators were about to disperse
after singing the national an-
them, Avrushmi allegedly threw
the grenade into the crowd,
according to the charge sheet.
Probe Urged Of
Vatican-Nazi Tie
NEW YORK Kalman Sul-
tanik, vice president of the World
Jewish Congress, said that the
House Judiciary Committee is
scheduled to hold hearings this
spring on American intelligence
involvement with Nazi war
He said that he has, according-
ly, asked that the committee
conduct a formal inquiry into the
charges contained in a 1947 State
Department report which, until
last year, had been labelled "top
secret." The report, known in
intelligence circles as the La
Vista report, disclosed that the
Vatican aided in the illegal
emigration of Nazis following
World War II.
The formal request for the in-
quiry was made in a letter by
Sultanik to Rep. Peter Rodino
(D., N.J.), chairman of the
Judiciary Committee. Sultanik is
the current chairman of the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council to
which he was appointed by Presi-
dent Carter in 1980.

Jerusalem As Israel's Capital
Thought Terrifies Reagan Administration
London Chronicle Syndicate
Reagan Administration
officials are deeply
frightened by the prospects
of pending congressional
actions designed to
mandate the U.S. recogni-
tion of Jerusalem as
Israel's capital.
New York's Democratic Sen.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan has
made clear that he intends to
take such a step. He can be
expected to win considerable
bipartisan support in the Senate
and House of Representatives,
although legal scholars are
divided on the constitutional
ability of the Legislative branch
of the U.S. Government to force
the executive branch to move the
U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to
WHAT IS so upsetting to the
Administration right now is even
the prospect of such Congres-
sional legislation being debated.
The publicity alone is bound,
U.S. officials said, to arouse the
passions of the Arab and Islamic
They believe that Democratic
Presidential front-runner Walter
Mondale is being totally
irresponsible in even promising
to move the embassy to
Jerusalem if he were elected next
November. Mondale is already on
record as voicing such a pledge.
"You better believe he would
pull a Joe Clark," said one White
House official, referring to the
former Canadian Prime Minister
who also had promised during his
campaign to move Canada's
Embassy to Jerusalem but later
had to back away from that
commitment in the face of strong
Arab petrodollar pressures.
Saudi Arabia and other Arab
countries warned they would
back out of several lucrative
contracts with Canadian firms if
the embassy were moved. In the
end, the Canadian Embassy
remained in Tel Aviv.
EVEN ALL the publicity of a
highly-charged debate in the
Senate and House during this
election year would irritate the
White House and the State
Department. Officials there are
trying to revive the Arab-Israeli
peace process, hoping to win the
support of "moderate" Arabs,
especially Jordan's King
Hussein. Given the emotional
impact of the issue in the Arab
world, such a debate on Capitol
Hill would supposedly set back
any prospects for getting fresh
peace talks off the ground.
Raising the matter of
Jerusalem now would cripple our
efforts," said one Administration
specialist on the Middle East.
"Under such circumstances,
there would be no way for
Hussein to get involved."
That official, in fact, went one
step further. He warned of almost
total doom and gloom resulting
from such a move. "We would be
returning to the pre-1967 War
era," he said. "No Arabs would
be willing to deal with Israel."
According to this official, even
those moderate Arabs who have
come to accept Israel as a per-
manent fact of life in the Middle
East probably would revert to
the pre-1967 attitude that there
would be no Israel in the region.
"The Arabs," he said, "would
again become polarized in their
notions of Israel."
THUS, the Reagan Adminis-
tration is moving decisively to
try to take steps to avert any
Jerusalem debate right now. This
is not the first time that a
member of Congress has sought
to take the initiative in having
the U.S. recognize Jerusalem as
Israel's capital.
Republican Congressman
Philip Crane of Illinois in-
troduced a similar proposal in
1980. He was clearly anxious to
embarrass the Carter Adminis-
tration and several pro-Israel
Democrats on Capitol Hill who,
in the end, actually voted against
the Crane amendment. Given this
opposition, the amendment died.
Crane did not try to revive it
following the election of the
Republican Administration.
Reagan, for his part, was very
careful during the 1980 cam-
paign. He spoke of keeping
Jerusalem undivided with free
access to the Holy Places. He
also suggested that Israel should
retain sovereignty over the entire
city, although he never promised
to actually move the embassy
there. He was advised from the
start by his closest campaign
foreign policy aides that such a
promise would be difficult to
keep. In the process of discussing
the Jerusalem issue at that time,
he raised the possibility ot
establishing a Vatican-type
arrangement there.
Reagan's position on Jerusalem
has reverted back to the long-
standing U.S. policy of refusing
to recognize Israel sovereignty
throughout the city reunited
during the 1967 War. The
President and his top advisers
are firmly convinced that the
future of the Arab-Israeli peace
process rests in large measure
with those moderate Arabs
willing to compromise in negotia-
tions with Israel along the lines
of Egypt under the late Anwar
The Arab world, they believe,
is currently at a crucial turning
point. The Arabs are divided
between the moderates and the
rejectionists (Libya, Iraq, Syria,
premised on the assumption that
Hussein would participate as the
representative of the West Bank
and Gaza Palestinians. He deeply
disappointed the Administration
last April when he said no. But
now, there is another full court
press designed to convince him to
change his mind.
The Administration's decision
to revive the Jordanian strike
force during this just convened
session of Congress is also part of
the strategy. Israel has been
coming under strong pressure
from Reagan and his aides not to
oppose the scheme. During the
first round of the U.S.-Israeli
joint military-political group
discussing strategic cooperation,
this issue was high on the
agenda. But Israeli officials are
still skeptical about bringing
Hussein into peace talks no
matter what.
$25,000 Bequest to PLO
Will Be Turned Over

Three Jewish organizations

ican journalist.

ALL THREE appeared as
amici curiae (friends of the court)
before the New York County
Surrogate's Court. They filed
papers opposing this bequest on
the grounds that:
Aiding the PLO is contrary to
public policy; and the PLO is an
unincorporated association which
has no legal existence in New
York and thus is ineligible to
accept a bequest under New York
The settlement, worked out
with the approval of the
Surrogate's Court, involved four
parties: the executor of the
Sparks estate, the PLO, the New
York Attorney General, and
another beneficiary named in
Sparks' will.
According to the terms of the
settlement, the bequest will go to
:he Red Cross, which will set up a

instructions to utilize the fund

that the funds should be limited
to aid to civilian hospital
facilities in the form of medicines,
medical care, food and new or
improved housing.
The Sparks bequest to the
PLO was held up in April 1961
when Surrogate Marie Lambert
ruled that a question has arisen
in the court's mind whether such
an organization has the capacity,
under New York law, to receive
such a bequest and whether such
a bequest is violative of Diihlir
the PLO). The United States is in
the unique position, U.S. officials
said, of trying to expand the
moderate camp. This attitude
helps to explain why the
Administration was so excited by
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak's warm reception
accorded to PLO leader Yasir
Arafat immediately on the heels
of his ouster by the Syrians and
PLO rebels from Tripoli.
The U.S. objective right now is
to convince Arafat to give

'Nicaraguan Process' Poses
Threat to Jews of Region
ANTIGUA, Guatemala
- (JTA) A meeting of
representatives of Jewish
communities from Central
America has concluded that
the "Nicaraguan process"
poses a potential threat to
the well-being of Jewish
communities in the region.
But the communities are
not in any immediate
danger, the World Jewish
Congress reports.
The 11th convention of the
Federation of Jewish Commu-
nities of Central America and
Panama (FEUECO). the affiliate
of the WJC here, concluded its
three-day session this week.
There were 100 delegates and
guests, with representatives from
the Jewish communities of
Guatemala, El Salvador,
Honduras, Costa Rica, and
Panama, as well as repre-
sentatives from the Israeli
Foreign Ministry, Jewish
Agency, HI AS, and the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
place against the backdrop of the
explosive general situation
reigning in Central America and
the uncertainty regarding the
future of the region. Among the
Jewish leadership there was the
conviction that if the
"Nicaraguan process" were to
extend to other countries, the
possibilities for the survival of
the Jewish communities would
An analysis of the Jewish
situation in the region showed
two stable and dynamic commu-
nities: Panama (5,000-6000) and
Costa Rica (2,000-3,000). In
addition, Guatemala (some 1,000
Jews) is a community reduced by
emigration but organized and
active. El Salvador and Hon-
duras have some 40 Jewish
families each.
Despite the potential dangers
arising from the general political
situation, the Jews of Central
America did not see themselves
as being on the eve of a massive
exodus or the extinction of their

FEDECO convention and of the
resolutions that were adopted
had to do with the internal
reinforcement of the commu-
nities, the maintenance of Jewish
identity and spiritual life, and
continuity between the genera
tions. Among other specific
subjects, the delegates under-
lined the need to overcome
divisiveness within the commu-
nities and to make more of their
members active.

Boc a Lago Mission A Success
On Tuesday, Feb. 7, nine men
from Boca Lago participated in a
local Mission to visit the various
agencies and services of the
South County Jewish Federation.
Arnold Rosenthal, Chairman of
the Men's Division Campaign at
Boca Lago, organized and hosted
this Mission.
The day began at 7:45 a.m.
when the Federation van started
its journey to the South County
Jewish Federation Community
Day School. The morning minyon
was shared by the Boca Lago
residents and the Day School
children and parents. Marianne
Bobick, President of the South
County Jewish Federation, also
joined the Mission at this point.
Next stop was the James and
Marjorie Baer Jewish Com-
munity Campus where Marianne
Bobick gave a tour of the facility
and answered questions.
Also visited were the Jewish
Family and Children's Service,
the Federation offices, and Rabbi
Pollock, Chaplain at the hospital
in Delray Beach where the group
was addressed by Rabbi Pollock.
The highlight of the day was a
visit to the Kosher Konnection,
at Temple Anshei Emuna, where

60-70 people participate five days
a week in this hot meal and
exercise program. The Mission
joined in singing and a meal, and
were thrilled to be able to touch
these people and be touched by
them in return.
The smiles on the faces of both
Mission participants and Kosher
Konnection members were
priceless. As one Boca Lago
resident commented, "This is
what it's all about. I never
realized before that these services
were even available in South
County. Another person com-
mented, "I used to volunteer in
my northern community for the
Federation. This experience has
moved me to get back into that
mitzvah of giving time to the
South County Federation."
One resident of Boca Lago who
is here for only a few months and
is professionally involved in
Jewish communal life up north,
was so impressed by what he
witnessed that he, too, has of-
fered his services where needed as
a chaplain, counselor or Rabbi.
Arnold Rosenthal feels that
this is a fantastic vehicle fqr
introducing the various Boca-
Delray areas to our South County
Jewish Community and en-
courages others to become in-
volved in this way. "I would like
to thank the Federation for in-
stituting this practice and to
Marianne Bobick, President of
the South County Jewish
Federation, for sharing her
morning hours with us for this
essential and unique experience,"
Rosenthal commented.
Peace Now
For Nobel
members of the Swedish Parlia-
ment have informed the Jeru-
salem Post that they have
nominated the Peace Now
movement in Israel for this year's
Nobel Peace Prize.
In a telegram to the Post they
explained they "consider the
Peace Now movement to be one
of the most important elements
in fostering a dialogue which
could lead to peace between
Israelis and Arabs ... a solution
to the conflict between Israel and
the Arabs may also contribute to
a lessening of tensions between
the superpowers."

Price with the late Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat after

Campaign Update
Hamlet, Del-Aire Lead The 1984 Men's Campaign
Estancia, Boca West, Boca Lago and
Others Show Significant Movement
"Something special is taking
place in our community, one can
feel it. One senses the excitement
in higher level involvement of the
people. 1 am proud to announce
that the 1984 UJ A- Federation
Men's Division Campaign of the
South County Jewish Federation
is expanding significantly both in
money raised and the number of
men that have become involved,"
said Dr. Larry Charme, Men's
Division Chairman.
Prime examples of an out-
standing effort can be seen in the
Hamlet and in Del-Aire.
Hamlet Chairman Seymour
Rappaport and his co-chairman
Rudy Lidsky, Sam Fox, and Phil
Rosenblum increased the number
of volunteers over three-fold. At
least 30 volunteers have been
working hard to make this year's
Hamlet campaign a huge success.
Last year the Hamlet collected
$148,000 in contributions. This
year, as of mid-February, Hamlet
had collected over $182,000 in
contributions. Significant to note
here is that the percentage of in-
crease over last year is running at
about 97 percent, an outstanding
Larry Gottsegen, and Shep
Kaufman, co-chairmen of the Del-
Aire campaign, are proud to
announce that Del-Aire is shoot-
ing towards the greatest cam-
paign in their history. As of mid-
February, Del-Aire has collected
$385,000 in contributions
compared to $310,000 last year in
total. So far this pace represents
a 50 percent increase, card, for
card, in Del-Aire. Gottsegen and
Kaufman want to congratulate
their committee for doing an out-
standing job.

A special word should be
mentioned about Abby Levine's
fine effort once again this year in
Del-Aire and in the $6,500 event
which was held Jan. 11. Both Del-
Aire and Hamlet should be
commended on their partic-
ipation and attendance at
South County Jewish Federation
events this year.
Daniel Freed and Dr. Nathan
Hoffeld have helped to solidify a
much improved Boca West
campaign this year. With many
more individual volunteers in-
volved, the Boca West Campaign
has gotten off to its best start
ever. Thanks to the vigorous and
enthusiastic work of this expand-
ed committee, the Boca West
Campaign has already raised
over $51,000, a card for card
increase thus far of 110 percent.
It is obvious that the Boca West
Campaign will surpass $100 000
in this campaign.
Arnold Rosenthal, overall
chairman of the Boca Lago Men's
Campaign, is proud to announce
on behalf of his pod chairman and
all the volunteers, that Boca
Lago has already surpassed
$100,000 as of mid-February. The
increase, card for card over last
year, is running about 44 percent.
At this rate, Boca Lago is
confident to surpass last year's
figure with ease.
The annual Boca Lago Dinner
Dance which will be held on Feb.
28 will be an exciting and
successful event, as it has been in
the past. Capacity attendance is
expected and increased fund
raising results are expected.
Al Gortz, the Men's Chairman
of the Estancia Campaign is
proud to announce that the
Estancia campaign is ? now
running 40 percent ahead of last
year on a card for card basis.
Thirty-thousand dollars has
already been received by mid-
February and with the second
annual Toast to Life joint Men's
and Women's function coming up
on March 3, there is much en-
thusiasm in Estancia at this
time. More people are interested
in the campaign this year as well
as attending the Toast to Life
Function. Al Gortz wants to note
that his expanded committee is
doing an outstanding job solicit-
ing the men of Estancia.
Woodfield Hunt Club, a
relatively new area, chaired by
Eric Deckinger and Dr. Mitchell
Ghen is off to a fantastic start.
The percentage increase is 41
percent for Woodfield Hunt Club
as of Mid-February. With face to
face solicitation planned in this
area and a special meeting in
March. Ghen and Deckinger
are looking forward to every Jew
being personally contacted in this
year s campaign.
Dick Romanoff, the Ocean
Chairman, is proud to announce
that the rate of increase on the
Ocean is holding at about 30 per
cent, a significant increase over
last year's contributions.
Romanoff notes that this is due
to the participation of many
individuals on the Ocean, too
numerous to mention in this
article. Ocean campaign, noted
for its strong finish, is once again
expected to end on a high note.
Boca Del Mar's newly appoint-
ed Men's Chairman, Jack Stone
is proud to announce that a
rapidly expanding core of volun-
teers is now soliciting in the Boca
Del Mar area. All indications as
of mid-February indicate a 35
percent increase over last year.
Stone is also looking forward to
the Boca Del Mar Men's Event at
Boca Pointe on March 4. It
should not only be a significant
social gathering, but all indica-
tions point to an enthusiastic
fund raising event as well.
Overall the Men's Campaign is
progressing with much momen-
tum and enthusiasm. Further
reports of outstanding achieve-
ments in this campaign will be
forthcoming in subsequent
Campaign Update articles.

Theme of Family Division
Causes Excitement
"Nothing in life just happens.
It isn't enough to believe in
something, you have to have the
stamina to meet obstacles and
overcome them, to struggle."
Oolda Meir
The theme for this year's

Commentators noted that Sharon
was safe in making such demands
because he knew the government
would never agree.
The interview dramatized
Sharon's ongoing battle with the
media. The hostility between the
panel of three interviewers and
their guest was almost palpable.
Observers said later that
"there was no knock-out in last

Rockets Hit Galilee;
Militia Seeks Sites
TEL AVIV (JTA) Three Katyusha rockets
fired from Lebanese territory landed in upper Galilee last
week without causing casualties or damage. Israel Radio
reported that one projectile hit Metullah and others
struck its outskirts.
The incident was the eighth of its kind in the 20
months since Israel invaded Lebanon in what was called
"Operation Peace for Galilee,'' aimed at halting terrorist
rocket and artillery attacks on Israeli towns from across
the Lebanese border. The missiles launched today sent
residents of Metullah scurrying for bomb shelters. But
they emerged minutes later.
THE ROCKETS WERE of 107 mm. caliber with a
range of five miles. Israeli soldiers and units of the late
Col. Saad Haddad's militia scoured the countryside to try
to find the launching site. The Katyushas are a mobile

sustained damage when it struck a mine south of the

Tension Rising Between
Shiite Militias and UN Forces
A tense situation has de-
veloped in south Lebanon
between members of the
United Nations Interim
Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL) and Shiite
militias, complicating
Israel's efforts to improve
relations with the Shiites.
There has been a series of
confrontations between UN
troops and Shiite militiamen in
the region south of the Awali
River. The latest occurred yester-
day when Shiites blocked a road
to halt a UNIFIL supply convoy
manned by Ghanaian soldiers. In
the ensuing clash, one militiaman
was wounded and three were

Israel to restrain local elements

and controlled by the Israel

own trouble with the Shiites.
Initially they welcomed the
Israeli invasion of Lebanon in
June, IW2 because the IDF
drove the Palestine Liberation
Organization out of south
Lebanon. Later, however, strong
measures taken against terrorists
in the Shiite populated areas led
to clashes between Shiites and
the IDF.
Israel is now trying to repair
its relations with the 400,000
Shiites who comprise the
majority of the population in
south Lebanon and with the

"In only a few weeks, $35,000

more money is expected," was
the way Kings Point UJA-
Federation Chairman Iz Siegel
summed up the 1984 Campaign
thus far.
Siegel, who is working on his
eighth UJA Campaign, was very
optimistic. He said, "This will be
a banner campaign. All indica-
tions point to it. All of my Assoc-
iate Chairmen and Area Chair-
men are hard at work in what we
are sure will lead to an exemplary
campaign effort by all the
citizens of our community."
Kings point is South County's
largest community and,
therefore, requires a great
number of volunteers. Siegel
appointed two veteran cam-
paigners to be his Associate
Chairmen. They are Joe Master
of the Eastern Section and Sol
Lapidus of the West. The con-
dominium is divided by Carter
Road for campaign purposes.

Coco Wood Lakes Local
Mission A Big Success
On Monday, Feb. 6, Coco
Wood Lakes made history. They
were the first Family Division
area to go on a Mission to view
the many Jewish services
available in their local Boca
Raton-Delray Beach area. UJA is
well-known for its Missions to
Israel but local Missions are now
beginning to gain momentum in
South County.
The local Mission, sponsored
by the Federation, featured visits
to the Day School, the new James
and Marjorie Baer Jewish
Campus that will open this
Spring, the Jewish Family and
Children's Service, the
Federation offices, the Kosher
Konnection program at Congre-
gation Anshei Emuna, and the
Chaplaincy program at Delray
Community Hospital.
The Coco Wood Lakes
residents had a most rewarding
and heart-warming experience as
they made the rounds from place
to place in the Federation mini-
bus, available for such Missions.
In addition, the participants
partook of breakfast after the
daily Minyon at the Day School
and participated in the Kosher
lunch program at Delray's
Congregation Anshei Emuna.

local Missions, contact the
Federation at 368-2737.

[ica Speeds Helsinki Legislation Through Congress
a 24-hour period,
Bssman Dan Mica (D.,
lewly elected Chairman of
Foreign Affairs Sub-
ittee on International
tions, held hearings, in-
ed legislation, and won
support for his bill to
then the role and mandate
le international Helsinki
The Commission was created
by Congress in 1976 to monitor
and encourage compliance with
the Helsinki Accords, signed by
the United States, the Soviet
Union, Canada, and every
European nation except Albania.
The legislation was originally
authored by previous Sub-
committee Chairman Dante
r'ascell pnor to his election as
Chairman of the full Foreign
Affairs Committee.
Mica said, "The real thrust of
the Helsinki Accords is a focus on
human rights and the freedom
and right of emigration for Soviet
Jews. The purpose behind our bill
is to assure that there is no
weakening of U.S. participation
in the human rights monitoring
process. If anything, we should
continually strengthen our
position and raise our collective
voice in support of human rights
throughout the world."
The Mica legislation provides
for the rotation of Congressional
leadership of the Helsinki
Commission to assure continuity
and unified support of its efforts.
Both Senate and House Members
would serve as Commission
Chairmen under the provisions of
"Technically, our bill responds
to a procedural issue," said Mica.
"But in a much broader sense, it
addresses the whole question of
human rights, family reunifica-
tion, and the freedom to emigrate
for Soviet Jews. We must stand
behind the Helsinki Accords with
courage and unity. If the U.S.
Congress falters in its efforts to
monitor and encourage human
rights issues, then what
legislative body in the world can
take our place?"

ago, according to Romberg. He
maintained that all members of
the MNF had been consulted,
although there were reports that
they were surprised by the an-
nouncement. Richard Murphy,
Assistant Secretary of State for
Near Eastern and South Asian
Affairs, was in Rome and was on
his way to Paris and London at
the time.
In related developments, it was
reported from Paris that France
is anxious to replace its MNF
contingents in Beirut with a
United Nations force. British
government sources said in
London that Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher and her
senior ministers would pull out
the 115-man British contingent

MNF even before Reagan an-
nounced his decision. In Rome,
Italy's Defense Minister Gio-
vanni Spadolini said his country,
which has 1,500 troops in the
MNF, was "preparing the same
measures as the U.S. and
In another development, Tass,
the official Soviet news agency,
announced that the Soviet Union
was sending a senior member of
its ruling Politburo, Geidar
Aliyev, to Damascus on what
Tass described as a "brief
working visit" but gave no de-
seemed to indicate an expansion
of the Soviet role in the Middle
Fast. Moscow has consistently
attacked the presence of the
MN F in Beirut and has intimated
that its strategy calls for the
Lebanese crisis to be dealt with
as part of an overall Middle East
peace settlement with the partici-
pation of the major powers,
including the USSR.
A United Nations spokesman
said that the UN would be willing
to replace the MNF with a multi-
national force of its own, if the
Lebanese government so
requested and the Security
Council approved. Soviet
acquiesence would be required in
the Security Council.
In his statement, Reagan said:
"To enhance the safety of Ameri-
can and other MNF personnel in
Lebanon, I have authorized U.S.
naval forces, under the existing
mandate of the MNF, to provide
naval gunfire and air support
against any units firing into
greater Beirut from parts of
Lebanon controlled by Syria as
well as against any units directly
attacking American and MNF
personnel and facilities."
policy is not to support any
faction or religious group in
Lebanon but to fire back only
when fired upon. He noted,
however, that the U.S. now con-
siders that any firing on Beirut
endangers Americans, as it did
when the American Ambas-
sador's residence in Beirut was
The battleship New Jersey
fired its 16 inch guns for the
first time in two months at
Syrian-controlled positions from
which the envoy's home was
shelled. Damascus radio charged
that the shelling caused heavy
casualties among civilians, in-
cluding women and children and
extensive damage.
Romberg noted that the U.S.
has evacuated 90 American
Embassy personnel and depen-
dents from Beirut. There are still
196 U.S. government employes in
Beirut and 1,350 private
American citizens. In addition,
he said, there were 900 civilians
in Beirut who hold dual U.S.-
Lebanese citizenship and 174
Lebanese who have resident alien
status in the U.S. Romberg said
there has been no general eva-
cuation of Americans from Beirut
although the State Department
has issued an advisory against
travelling there.

Moshe Abramov, a 28-year-old
Orthodox Jew from the Central
Asian city of Samarkand, was
sentenced to three years in
prison, after being arrested on
charges of "hooliganism." Held
in the town of Katta-Kurgan,
about 100 kilometers from
Samarkand, he is subsisting on
bread and water since conditions
there prevent him from observing
Jewish dietary laws. His arrest
followed a dispute with local
authorities in which he was asked
to withdraw a request to
emigrate to Israel, submitted in
1980: he refused.
Last year's emigration trend
continued, as only 88 Jews left
the Soviet Union in January.
Just topping the November and
January, 1983 figures, the
current monthly total is the third
lowest since emigration began in
the late sixties.
In its continuing effort to
revive Tsarist and neo-Nazi
mvths of a "Jewish conspiracy,"
the Soviet Union assailed the
appointment of two Jews to the
British Cabinet as reflecting "the
growing Zionist influence" in the
country. A Radio Moscow broad-
cast beamed to Britain charged
that the two men, Leon Brittan
and Nigel Law son the first
Jews to be simultaneously
elevated to Cabinet posts had
links to a "Zionist lobby." Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher was
attacked as "an active supporter
