Mrs. Monge will receive the
South County Jewish Federation
Humanitarian award on behalf of
her efforts and commitment to
Israel and worldwide Jewry.
Mrs. Monge is the daughter of
Polish Jews who immigrated to
Costa Rica in the 1920's, the first
Ashkenazi Jews in Costa Rica.
At present, there are ap-
proximately 3,000 Jews in Costa
Rica, most of whom live in San
Jose. The majority came from
Poland, from the shtetls of
Jelekov and Koanitz.
The Jewish community is very
unified; intermarriage is rare.
They have a mikvah, cemetery,
synagogue, Hebrew school, and
religious school teachers from
Israel. It is quite common for
Costa Rican Jewish teenagers to
live on a Kibbutz in Israel for six
months to one year after high
school graduation. Approxi-
mately 98 percent of the Jewish
youth in Costa Rica receive an
orthodox orientation, but as Mrs.
Monge explains, "We are not
orthodox in practice, but as a
community we keep the
traditions."

Doris Yankelewitz was married
to Louis Alberto Monge in 1966,
who is a Roman Catholic. Her
Zionist beliefs were strong, and
she instilled the strength of her
convictions into her husband.
When he was a candidate for the
Presidency, on* of his promises
was to open the Costa Rican
embassy in Jerusalem. Following
his election, he succeeded in his
goal. To date, Costa Rica is the
only nation to recognize Jeru-
salem as the capital of Israel.

In a cablegram to the Chilean

Affairs Division said that "world

FOXMAN ALSO cabled West

ment ot request that Chile expel
Rauf so that the Federal Republic
of Germany could bring him to

that his government "is now
investigating what measures can
be taken or solution found"
regarding Rauffs expulsion or
extradition to the Federal
Republic Foxman said.
Meanwhile Foxman disclosed
a number of other developments
in connection with Rauff:
B'nai B'rith of Chile acting
on behalf of B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional presented a letter to
Interior Minister Onofre jarpa
urging him to favorably consider
the request of the government of
Israel that Rauff be expelled.
Leaders of the Peruvian
Jewish community met in Lima
with Chilean Embassy officials to
also call for Rauff s expulsion for
his "crimes against humanity."
They told the Chilean diplomats
that the statute of limitations
does not apply to such crimes.
There has bean increasing
support from the non-Jewish
community of Chile to expel
Rauff. with demonstrators
outside his home calling him a
"Nazi assassin" and demanding
he be tried for war crimes.
Foxman said that because the
government forced thousands of
Chileans into exile for political
reasons many in Chile the war
criminal Waiter Rauff or those
deprived of their nationality and
forced to live outside of Chile?"

BONN (JTA) -
Franz Josef Strauss' unan-
nounced, unofficial trip to
Syria has dismayed the
Bonn government and
raised speculation as to the
precise intentions behind
the conservative Bavarian
leader's visit to Damascus
for talks with President
Hafez Assad.
Strauss heads the Christian
Social Union the ruling party in
Bavaria and a close ally of
Chancellor Helmut Kohl's
Christian Democratic Union
(CDU). But Kohl was reported to
have been surprised and angered
on his return from the funeral of
Yuri Andropov in Moscow to
learn of Strauss' self-appointed
mission.
AIDES TO Strauss said he
was responding to a personal
invitation from Assad at a time
when contacts between
Damascus and the West are at an
extremely delicate stage owing to
the situation in Lebanon and the
unresolved Arab-Israeli conflict.
They refused to say whether
Strauss considered his mission to
be an attempt to mediate bet-
ween the United States and
Syria. He had not been asked to
undertake such a role.
There are also rumors that
Strauss may be trying to open
the way for weapons sales to
Syria by Bavarian based arms
manufacturers. Sources here
recall that he initiated joint
Franco-German arms sales to
Syria several years ago. a deal
approved by the Bonn govern-
ment at the time because it in-
volved weapons systems jointly
produced by France and West
Germany.
But according to many ob-
servers, the Bavarian leader's
venture into personal diplomacy
in the Middle East may be an
attempt to undermine the posi-
tion of Foreign Minister Hans-
Dietrich Genscher a leader of the
small Free Democratic Party
(FDP) which is the CDU's coali-
tion partner.
GENSCHER HAD served as
Foreign Minister in the Social
Democratic Party (SPD)-FPD
coalition headed by former
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt.
When the SPD was unseated by
the CDU in last year's elections.
Strauss sought to replace
Genscher as Foreign Minister
and was angered when Kohl
refused to appoint him. He has
since been pressing for a govern-
ment shuffle that would reduce
the influence of the FDP which
represents a liberal element in
Kohl's coalition.
Spokesman for the SPD op-
position said today that Strauss'
trip to Syria and his other foreign
policy activities damage West
Germany's reputation and are a
burden on relations with other
countries. The Foreign Ministry
made it clear that Strauss had
not been assigned any mission on
the government's behalf.

Filling in Background
Mubarak Hung Tough in Washington
By HELEN SILVER
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) President
Reagan, King Hussein of
Jordan and President
Hosni Mubarak of Egypt
emerged from a luncheon
meeting at the White
House with Reagan
declaring that the Middle
East conflict "must be
resolved by negotiations
involving an exchange of
territory for peace.''
In addition. Mubarak urged
the United States to open a
dialogue with the Palestine
Liberation Organization through
Yasir Arafat and Hussein ex-
pressed his appreciation for the
three-way talks and his own
private meeting with Reagan.
A SENIOR Administration
offical who summed up the talks
later stressed however that
there had been no breakthrough.
"No decisions were taken and no
new plans were made that was
not the purpose of the meeting "
he said.
The official also dissociated
Reagan from Mubarak's call for a
U.S. dialogue with the PLO
observing that "You can't
control statements by a depart-
ing chief of state and you cer-
tainly don't endorse it by
standing there."
He reaffirmed that the U.S.
stands by Security Council
resolutions 242 and 338 as the
framework for Middle East peace
and declared "We have no in-
tention of negotiating with the
PLO."
The official said that Reagan
had assured his guests that he
will not "shy away from the
peace process during this election
year ... He (the President) made
clear the need for moving for-
ward." The official refused to
Likud Bows to Demand
For Debate on Jewish Quarter
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Likud-led coalition
suffered an unexpected defeat when the Knesset voted 48-
46 in favor of an opposition motion to hold a full-scale
debate on the government's plans to expand the Jewish
quarter in Hebron.
DEPUTY PREMIER DAVID LEVY, speaking for
the government, urged the Knesset to drop the motions.
He said plans to extend the Jewish quarter into what is
presently an open air vegetable market would be carried
out without moving any of the Arab vendors against their
will. But Likud MK Dror Seigerman voted with the
opposition and former Minister-Without-Portfolio
Mordechai Ben-Porat, who has just resigned from the
Cabinet, abstained.
An angry dispute broke out, meanwhile, between
Labor Alignment dove Yossi Sarid and Geula Cohen, of
the ultra-nationalist Tehiya Party over Jewish acts of
violence against Arabs on the West Bank that have gone
unpunished.
SARID MAINTAINED that the security authorities
know who planted the bombs that maimed two Arab
mayors in 1980 but are unable to prosecute the offenders
for lack of evidence. He said evidence was lacking because
of the non-cooperation of Jewish settlers in the territory
and inadequate intelligence in the settlements.
Cohen accused Sarid of defaming the settlers. She
said she did not believe Jews were involved in the bom-
bings but added that if Jewish terrorists are found, they
should be brought to justice because they "are the enemy
of settlements."
elaborate however on Reagan's
remark about exchanging
territory for peace.
IN HIS REMARKS to the
press after the luncheon meeting
which lasted well over an hour
Reagan said he and his guests
had 'discussed in detail the
opportunities for progress in the
Middle East." He stressed his
September 1 1982 peace ini-
tiative as the best means toward
progress and blamed the situa-
tion in Lebanon on "outside
forces."
Mubarak had the most to say
to reporters at the White House.
He maintained that the key to a
solution in Lebanon is "the
prompt and unconditional with-
drawal of Israeli forces" from
that country. He held Israel's
invasion of Lebanon to be "the
cause of the problem" and
warned that the partition of
Lebanon "must be prevented at
any cost." He suggested an
expanded and reenforced peace-
keeping role for the United
Nations in Lebanon. He also
insisted that the Palestinian
problem must be addressed
"without delay."

in Cairo last December after the
PLO chief was ousted from
Lebanon by Syrian-backed
Palestinian dissidents told
Reagan 'The Palestinian people
are entitled to your support and
understanding. There is no sub-
stitute for a direct dialogue with
them through their chosen repre-
sentatives the PLO."
HE SUGGESTED that the
dialogue be held with Arafat
whom he described as "a respon-
sible leader who has demon-
strated tremendous courage
under the most difficult circum-
stances."
Hussein said after the meeting
that he "carries back the impres-
sion that Egypt and the U.S. are
The St*
willing to contribute their full
share in the search for peace."
The senior Administration
official described the three-way
talks as "very lively and
animated ... an airing of con-
cerns and views about the need to
renew the focus in the Middle
East." He said the purpose of the
meeting had been to discuss
where the situation in the region
as a whole and in Lebanon stands
today and what can be done to
reactivate the peace process.
The official said the three
leaders had agreed on the need to
broaden peace negotiations to
include Jordan and that Hussein
is "looking for a framework to
enter the negotiations."

Newsman Retires
JTA's Kayston Presided
Over the Turbulent Years
NEW YORK (JTA) John
Kayston, retiring executive vice
president of the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency, was
presented with a plaque at the
annual JTA Board of Directors
meeting in Atlanta for his 48
years of "outstanding and
dedicated service to promoting
hthe dissemination of Jewish news
around the world."
Martin Fox, JTA president, in
presenting the plaque to
Kayston, praised him for his
many years of service to the JTA.
"To work in one job for 48 years
is quite rare in our society
today."
OTHER COMMENTS from
raMi-d members included Philips
Slomovitz, editor and publisher
of The Jewish News of Detroit
and JTA vice president. In a
letter to the Board he wrote that
Kayston "is a pioneer in Jewish
journalism who has earned every
blessing and honor that can be
accorded him."
Board member Hy Vile of
Kansas City stated: "Dedication
and sincerity such as demons-
trated by John Kayston are far,
far too rare on the public scene
Following the meeting,
Kayston expressed some
thoughts on the world he helped
U> shape. He expressed his belief
iat the past half century "is the
most momentous period in
Jewish history. The two most
important events during that
period which profoundly affected
Jewish life." he said, "were
Hitler's murder of six million
Jews, the Holocaust, and the
birth ot the Stale of lsraael."
THERE IS general agreement,
Kayston observed, that the JTA
played an important and vital
role during these turbulent years
^m collecting and disseminating
news atiecting Jewish lives
everywhere. Little is known,
however, of some behind-the-
sienes stories in which JTA was
involved.
One such story, Kayston
recalled, was the deportation of
Horiu Smolar, then JTA's chief
foreign correspondent, from
Merlin in 1937. He went to Nazi
Germany in 1933 to stay for a few
days to do a series of articles on
the plight of the Jews in Get-
many and stayed for four years.
His stay there was fraught
with danger. Propaganda
inister Joseph Goebbels
Falluded to this when he said that
Smolar was a 'courageous man'
for daring to send out reporters
| about the Nazi regime. "
Kayston also recalled that in
^45, immediately after the
Allied victory in Europe and the
liberation of the concentration
camp inmates, JTA was able to
obtain lists of survivors in
various countries under Nazi
' wxupation and sent them for
| ffistribution in the United States
and other countries so that
relatives coujd get in touch with
the survivors.
That is no question, Kayston
said, "that the excellent
reporting of Smolar, JTA's chief
foreign correspondent during the
1920s and 1930s, from,Europe
anq the Middle East helped to a
large extent to establish JTA's
credibility with the general
media."
KAYSTON ALSO reported to
the Overseas News Agency
(ONA), founded in 1940 as a
subsidiary of the JTA. AT that
time, some of the daily
newspapers which subscribed to
the JTA news service, especially
The New York Times, felt they no
longer could use the "Jewish
Telegraphic Agency" slugline,
because the name was too
"parochial" and implied biased
news reporting.
Partly as a result of this, Jacob
Landau, founder of the JTA and
its managing editor, enlisted the
help and expertise of such
prominent journalists as Herbert
Bayard Swope and William Allen
White in establishing a general
"non-Jewish" news agency. Hy
Wishengrad, JTA editor at the
time, became editor of the ON A
and Victor Bienstock its chief
foreign correspondent.
Within a year, ON A oewi was
carried by more than >0 daily
American and Canadian
newspapers. Its reporters and
correspondents included out-
standing journalists and writers
such as Theodore White, Meyer
Levin, David Schoenbrun, Ehe
Abel, and Gabe Pressman.
ONA'S CORRESPONDENT
in Stockholm was Willy Brandt
(later to become Chancellor of
West Germany) who used the
assumed name of Karl Frahm. He
made several undercover trips to
Nazi Germany in the early 1940s
and was the first correspondent
to report on Hitler's "final
solution" of the Jewish question,
the Nazi slaughter of European
Jewry.
"Throughout all my 48 years
with JTA," Kayston said, "JTA
had to fight for its independence.
Hardly a day passes when one or
another Jewish organization, or
some political faction in Israel,
does not want to dictate to JTA
editors how to run the agency
and what news to print and which
stories to suppress. JTA's inde-
pendence and its impartial
reporting are its most valuable
asset. If it should ever deviate
from this policy, it would lose its
effectiveness."

Levy Says Only Israelis
Can Make Decisions
For Life in Israel
JERUSALEM -
(JTA) Deputy Premier
David Levy has told
visiting American Jewish
leaders that the only people
who can make decisions for
Israel are those who live
here.
Speaking in Hebrew at a
luncheon to the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations Levy
stressed that while Israel is
constantly being criticized it has
no other choice but to pursue the
policies it is following.
He was critical of the Reagan
Administration for not keeping
Israel informed on the meetings
in Washington between
President Reagan and King
Hussein of Jordan and Egypt
President Hosni Mubarak.
LEVY TALKED about the
critical need to close the social
gap in Israel. He said while there
was an imperative need to im-
prove the economy there could
be no solution which created
large-scale unemployment.
Earlier, the Presidents Con-
ference heard in separate
sessions Trade and Industry
Minister Gideon Patt and Energy
Minister Yitzhak Modai declare
that Israelis need to cut their
standard of living to improve the
economy. Patt said that while
Israel's inflation was high, it waa
not really 200 percent but ac-
tually 25-27 percent in dollars.
He said that it is difficult to
cut the budget because 28 per-
cent went for defense and 38
percent is allocated to servicing
the foreign debt. However. Patt
said there was a "good chance if
the present trend of the past few
months continues that Israel
could cut its annual debt of $3-4
billion by $1 billion because of an
increase in exports.
PATT ARGUED that in the
future Israel must concentrate on
high-technology exports because
it cannot reduce its unfavorable
trade balance by exporting only
"pantyhose" and "bathing
suits." He said a meeting will be
held in May in which repre-
sentatives of major firms will be
brought here to interest them in
investing in Israel.
He said he had been told by
foreign company heads that they
see Israel as a good place to
locate their companies because of
its "political stability."
Patt stressed to the Americans
that while Israel would now be
getting all of its military and
economic aid from the U.S. as a
grant it returns all this money to
the U.S. because it makes all its
purchases there.

Shamir in Brussels Seeks
Assist to Protect Exports
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) -
Premier Yitzhak Shamir of
Israel arrived in Brussels
for a four-day visit, during
which he met with the
Foreign Ministers of the
European Economic Com-
munity (EEC) and
members of the EEC's
governing council, accord-
ing to Israeli diplomatic
sources in Brussels.
Shamir reviewed with the 10
EEC member-states the
measures they plan to take to
protect Israeli exports to
Western Europe after Spain and
Portugal become full members of
the EEC. The meeting between
Shamir and the EEC officials
took place within the framework
f the joint EEC-Israel Com-
ssion which has not met since
the summer of 1982.
THE ENTRY of Spain and
Portugal into the European
market would seriously hurt
Israeli agricultural exports to
Europe since it does not have the
free tax status which Spain and
Portugal will have with their
entry into the EEC.

Israel's Anger With
Gemayel Seems
Entirely Justified
Israel's anger at the Gemayel govern-
ment's scrapping of the Israel-Lebanon
"' accord worked out so carefully last May 17
is both justified and understandable.
It brought an instant retaliatory military
operation last Sunday, when Israeli
warplanes pounded three Lebanese villages
in attacks upon guerrilla strongholds. Two
of these attacks were against targets east
of Beirut. The other was against the
southern Lebanese town of Damour.
Since the fatal change in the balance of
power in Lebanon and what appears to be
the imminent demise of the Gemayel
regime, it has been clear that Palestine
Liberation Organization terrorists are once
again filtering back into Lebanon to add to
the confusion in that hapless nation divided
by ancient enmities among Shiite and Suni
Muslims on the one hand and Maronite
Christians on the other.
All of this civil war has been com-
pounded in its problems by the Alawite-led
Syrian activity against Gemayel to get
him to abrogate his accord with Israel. In
this five-pronged struggle, the PLO plays
the role of sixth wheel a wheel Syria's
President Assad sent careening out of
Tripoli and rolling toward a second PLO
exile in almost as many years the first
having been Israel's destruction of the
PLO's forces in Beirut at the start of the
war.
All of these complexities apart, Israel
must now deal with the arrogance of a
situation that finds a duly-signed political
instrument between itself and another
Arab nation scrapped as a result of the
inspired warfare by a second Arab nation.
With the stark image in Israel's mind of
the absolutely unbelievable behavior of
Egypt's Hosni Mubarak in Washington
last week, which now suggests the
abrogation of the Camp David accord itself,
no wonder the Israelis sent their jets out
storming in a warning to the Lebanese:
Abrogated accord or no abrogated accord,
Lebanon cannot return to its previous
status of a staging area of terrorism
against northern Israel.
French Nazi Collaborators
Released After 20 Years
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) Three
French Nazi collaborators whose
death sentences were commuted
to life imprisonment by President
Charles de Gaulle have been
released after serving 20 year
prison terms, the Justice
Ministry confirmed.
The life sentences of Jean
Barbier, Jacques Vasseur and
Joseph Cortial were reduced to 20
years by de Gaulle's successor,
former President Georges
Pompidou. A Justice Ministry
spokesman said that "after com-
pleting their sentences there no
was possible reason to keep them
in jail."

Barbier, now 64, was sentenced
to death in 1966 for having led
the French gestapo faction in
Grenoble. He had also been a
member of the Waffen SS and
served on the Russian front
during World War II. He was
arrested in 1963 after hiding out
for 17 years under a false name.
He was released from prison last
August.
Vasseur and Cortial, also in
their middle-sixties, were origi-
nally sentenced to death for
serving as gestapo agents. As
such, they arrested Jews and
resistance fighters for deporta-
tion to death camps.

Syria Blamed
For Worsening Mideast Situation
By HELEN SILVER
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Secretary of State
George Shultz blamed
"Syrian-sponsored vio-
lence" for the worsening
crisis in Lebanon, affirmed
U.S. support for the May
17, 1983 Israel-Lebanon
withdrawal and security
agreement, and pledged
continued U.S. "material
support for the Lebanese
armed forces as circum-
stances permit."
Shultz made his remarks at an
unscheduled press conference at
the State Department as reports
from Lebanon indicated a
worsening of the Lebanese ar-
my's position against Syrian-
backed Druze and Shiite Moslem
forces and the possibility that
President Amin Gemayel may
soon announce the abrogation of
the May 17 accord as the price of
Syrian cooperation toward
national reconciliation in
Lebanon.
"We continue to support the
May 17 agreement" the Sec-
retary of State stressed. "Those
who would dispense with this
agreement must bear the respon-
sibility to find alternative for-
mulas for Israel's withdrawal"
from Lebanon he said.
WITH RESPECT to the
Middle East conflict as a whole
Shultz reiterated that President
Reagan's September 1 1982
peace formula based on Security
Council Resolution 242 and the
Camp David agreements "was
and remains the most hopeful
workable and feasible approach
to a solution to the Palestinian
problem. There is no other ap-
proach that will get anywhere "
Shultz said.
He added "There is no
military option. No other
mediator has recovered one inch
of Arab land." an apparent
allusion to U.S. mediation of the
1979 peace treaty between Israel
and Egypt and its mediation
through his own personal inter-
vention in May 1982 of the
Israel-Lebanon withdrawal
accord.
Shultz also made it clear that
there is no chance for Middle
East peace without Arab accept-
ance of Israel.
"THE POLICIES of rejection
and violence have utterly failed "
he said. "There is no possibility
that groups refusing to accept
the existence of Israel will ever
achieve anything. Those who
refuse to face this reality are
helping perpetuate the explosive
flow of current events. The
absence of negotiations per-
petuates injustice and anger. We
believe it is time to move for-
ward. President Reagan's
commitment remains solid and
the American people will whole-
heartedly support progress
toward peace."
Shultz was equally vehement
in rejecting the idea of a U.S.
dialogue with the Palestine
Liberation Organization urged
last week by President Hosni
Mubarak of Egypt in remarks
following a luncheon meeting
with President Reagan and King
Hussein of Jordan at the White
House.
"Conditions for any diagogue
between the PLO and the United
States have been very clearly,
stated many times Shultz said.
"The PLO should recognize
Resolution 242 and should state
its recognition of the right of the
State of Israel to exist and under ,
those circumstances the U.S. will
conduct discussions with the
PLO."
SHULTZ acknowledged that
the situation in Lebanon has
deteriorated. "In Lebanon we
face a new situation brought
Secretary Shultz
about by military pressures
against the legitimate govern-
ment he said. "This Syrian-
sponsored violence against the
government has presented us
with difficult choices in vehv of
the legislation and other con-
straints under which our forces
are operating.
"We are nonetheless
proceeding to provide material
support for the Lebanese armed
forces as circumstances permit to
respond to those who attack or
threaten the safety of our per-
sonnel and to redeploy our
Marine detachment on the ship*. '
The longer term problems in
Lebanon can only be solved by
political means."
Shultz appeared lukewarm
toward current French efforts to
persuade the Security Council to
send a United Nations force in
Beirut to replace the multi-
national force presently con-
sisting of American, French and
Italian troops.
"There is activity at the UN to
agree on a UN role in Lebanon."
Shultz said. "A UN presence
would be useful throughout
Lebanon, particularly for such
purposes as protecting the Pales-
tinian refugee camps. Beyond
this a significant UN role pre-
supposes a return of stability a
balance of forces and some
measure of political accord."

Breakfast Launches '84 Campaign
At High Point West
A breakfast held on Sunday,
Feb. 12 for High Point West
residents officially kicked off the
1984 UJA-Federation campaign.
Leo Silk, this year's Campaign
Chairman, used the working
session to map out campaign
strategy with his fellow com-
mittee members. Various ideas
were discussed, including in-
dividual parlor meetings which
will be held shortly in the homes
of the many volunteers.
Attending the Sunday break-
fast were Silk and his wife
Natalie, Gladys Weinshank,
General Campaign Chairman,
Benjamin Bussin, Family
Division Chairman and the
following committee members:
Belle and Julius Cogen, Mildred

Ethel Rothman.
At the conclusion of the
meeting, Chairman Silk said,
"with the sizeable number of
volunteers at this session, and
with several other individuals
who have also volunteered but
could not make the meeting, I am
most confident of a campaign
that will greatly exceed the
money raised last year."

Israel Amitai To Speak For
Century Village Bond Breakfast
Israel Amitai, a leading Israel
television producer, director and
writer of television and radio
public affairs programs and
former editor of one of Israel's
most influential daily news-
papers, will speak at BocaTeeca
Lodge for the Century Village
breakfast on March 4, in behalf of
the State of Israel Bond drive.
Considered one of the out-
standing personalities among
Israel's younger generation intel-
lectuals. Mr. Amitai is a Sabra
(Native-born Israeli). As a youth.
The Ostrows Lead
Pines North
Lillian and Charles Ostrow are
co-chairing the annual UJA
campaign on behalf of the Pines
North South County Jewish Fed-
eration. Since moving to the
Pines of Delray North, the hus-
band and wife campaign team
have lead the campaign; once
again organizing the annual
breakfast.
On Sunday, March 4 at 9:30
a.m., the clubhouse at Pines
North will have about 200 people
uniting for a common cause: the
benefit of the Jewish people, here
and the world-over.
The center piece of the Pines
North campaign is the annual
breakfast. This festive occasion
has massive appeal within the
Pines North community.
The breakfast will be
highlighted by an address by
Harvey Grossman, Director of
Campaign for the South County
Jewish Federation. He will be
discussing the State of Jewish
Affairs. For further information
on the event, contact Lillian
Ostrow, 276-6631 or Lillian
Wetzatein, 276-0134.
he served in the Haganah, the
defense organization of the
Jewish community there prior to
the establishment of the State of
Israel. In World War II, he
served in the regiments organized
by the Jewish Agency in
cooperation with the British
Government. In 1948, he fought
in Israel's War of Independence,
achieving the rank of Captain in
Israel's Defense Forces.
Presently deeply immersed in
the field of television production,
he has amassed an enviable
record of credits. He has
produced and directed, thus far,
over one thousand television
programs in the areas of public
affairs, the arts, culture and
education, as well as many
programs for ethnic groups in
their native tongues.
The Israel Bond Organization
is the major source of funds for
the economic development of the
State of Israel. Established in
1951, the Israel Bond program
has provided almost $5 billion to
advance every important aspect
of its economy. With the signing
of the peace treaty, Israel looks
to the Israel Bond program to
help provide some of the vitally-
needed funds for the building up
of the Negev where thousands
must be resettled from the Sinai
as well as for the implementation
of high priority economic projects
throughout Israel.
This breakfast will be the
concluding event for the Century
Village Bond Campaign. Mr.
Leonard Sheinfeld will receive the
New Life Peace Award. Seating
is limited. For reservations call

Pollack, Chaplain for the South
County Jewish Federation.
The success of the Mission was
apparent and the excitement of
those participating was unques-
tionable. The following com-
ments affirmed the feelings of the
day. "This is really an eye-
opener." "The thing that's
important at the Kosher Konnec-
tion is not the money. Most of
these people can afford food. It's
that they have a place to go in the
morning and look forward to
every day." "This was a great
experience." "I've been enlight-
ened, especially because I come
from a community where I was
the only Jew within 72 miles.
Now, I know where my money
went to all those years." "I feel
that this Mission must be made
available to as many people as
possible. It answers to the snow-
birds that the local community is
thriving for them and answers to
where our money goes locally."
One woman who comes daily to
the Kosher Konnection expressed
her feelings about what this
program meant to her. "I want to
tell you what the Federation does
for me. I look forward to every
day because I have a place to
come to. This is my therapy
group as well as a place to make
friends. This luncheon program
takes us out of our lonely homes.
I m able to sing and dance again.

Flanzbaum Speaks On 'Holocaust to Rebirth9
At Leadership Development
Sunday, Feb. 6, the
.dership Development group
[the South County Jewish
iteration met for their fourth
eting at the Holiday Inn,
keside. Gerald Flanzbaum,
pw Jersey attorney and
Eiairman of the New Jersey
overnor's Advisory Council on
lolocaust Education in the
iiblic schools, was the guest
>eaker.
Flanzbaum has put together a
Dwerful and moving visual
esentation which he entitles
.lolocaust to Rebirth." After a
ersonal visit to Poland, he
Mtlized the importance of
lowing his slides to various
.roups depicting life today in
Poland. He also shares his slides
to encourage ee:h observer to
-ever forget the Holocaust and to
retell the story.
Through his presentation, he
explains the lack of Jewish
population, what took place in
Europe and how a great Jewish
culture has been destroyed. He
succeeds in creating a picture of
Poland so that each and every
observer of the presentation feels
as if he-she were personally
reliving history a concept not
foreign to Judaism as expressed
in the Haggadah and the Exodus
from Egypt.
Flanzbaum also succeeds in
developing within each observer
a feeling of sadness, anger, and
despair. Yet out of this, a feeling
of hope grows with the birth of
the State of Israel as a thriving
Jewish community and culture.
The next final meeting of the
Leadership Development '84 will
meet on Sunday, Feb. 26, when
Gene Greenzweig, Executive
Director of the Central Agency
for Jewish Education, will speak
on "Jewish Education."

News Analysis
Andropov Death Will Change Little
By DR. WILLIAM KOREY
The death of Yuri
Andropov and the ac-
cession of Konstantin
Chernenko as the top leader
of the Soviet Communist
Party is unlikely to bring
any basic change for the
immediate future in policy
toward the Soviet Jewish
community.
During the course of the past
year, it is now clear, basic
Communist Party decisions have
been largely taken by the
politburo as a collective group
and it is more than likely that the
forthcoming transitional period
will also be marked by the collec-
tivity of decision-making. Each
key member of the Politburo
represents a crucial and major
interest group in Soviet society.
CAUTION IN terms of
decision-making and, especially
in terms of changes in the
existing policy line will respect to
most areas is certain to be the
prevailing made.
This flows from the collective
character of decision-making, the
predominantly gerontological
feature of the leadership, and the
fact that, in the current state of
American-Soviet sharp tensions,
no one will be inclined to seek a
hasty and significant modifica-
tion of the Party line.
Moreover, it is probable that
the entire Party leadership of the
politburo, given its awareness of
Andropov's long and terminal
illness, carefully considered and
very likely planned all possible
steps to take account of a variety
of changing circumstances. While
clashing interests and struggles
for power were undoubtedly
occurring, they were carefully
shielded from public view.
WITH REFERENCE to
Soviet Jewry, Party policy as
elaborated by the collective
leadership under Andropov and,
no doubt to be continued for the
time being, under Chernenko, the
new General Secretary, com-
prises for areas:
A veritable shut-down on
emigration but with a trickle
allowed exodus. The trickle
serves a variety of purposes. It is
a "demonstration" that the
USSR is adhering to the Helsinki
accord. It is also convenient
lever to use against refuseniks:
"be quiet, and, in due course, you
too can emigrate."
An intensifying clampdown
on the study of Hebrew and
Jewish history by "ulpanim" or
other private and informal
means. This is accompanied by
modest, largely inconsequential
gestures suggesting concessions
with respect to culture in Yid-
dish.
A serious effort to limit and
restrict, although not totally
sever, the contacts and rela-
tionship between Soviet Jews
and Jews of the West. This is
being accompanied by an effort,
unprecedented in the last several
decades, to laud in the press
persons with obviously Jewish
names who have served
Dr. William Korey is director
of policy research of the B 'nai
B'rith International Council
and an expert on Soviet policy
and the situation of Soviet
Jews.
"patriotically" or otherwise the
Soviet cause.
A broadening, "anti-
Zionist" media campaign with
distinctve, though at times
blurred, features of anti-Jewish
stereo-typing and bigotry. The
campaign has been institu-
tionalized, provided official
sanction, and given extensive
local casting with the creation of
the "Anti-Zionist Committee of
the Soviet Public."
TO THE extent that the of-
ficial Soviet policy toward Soviet
Jewry is largely a function of the
rlationship between the USSR
and the West, mainly the U.S.,
with the Jews held, as it were, as
hostages to that relationship, no
significant alleviation of the
Soviet Jewish plight can be
expected in the near future. No
serious experts on Soviet affairs
anticipate any immediate
thawing in the current frigidity of
the U.S.-USSR relationships.
Still, the new Soviet leader,
beyond the immediate transi-
tional stage, may seek to provide
his Administration with a more
popular base by initiating
"peace" gestures or responding
to "peace" gestures from the
West. Such gestures of responses
would evoke strong positive reac-
tions withing the Soviet public
(and elsewhere).
Under circumstances of a
renewed, even if limited, dialogue
with the West, particularly in the
area of arms (especially nuclear
arms) control, an improvement in
the condition of soviet Jewry,
most notably with respecto to
emigration, should and would not
be excluded.
IN THIS respect, Chernenko's
most recent statement on East-
West relations, which appears in
an introduction to a newly-
published translation of his
speeches and articles, is encour-
aging. He wrote that "we are in
favor of active and fruitful
dialogue with nations living
under different social systems
than ours, the United States and
Britain in particular." Chernenko
added that it was "more im-
portant than ever" to intensify
efforts for mutual understanding
with the U.S.
Of the entire 12-man top Soviet
leadership, only Chernenko, the
73-year-old former principal aide
to Leonid Brezhnev, has ex- -
pressed himself publicly on the
subject of emigration. For a time,
submerged by Andropov, he re-
couped much of his powers with
the worsening illness of the
former and now enjoys eminence
as the dominant "Old Guard"
figure. Thus, his views have
considerable pertinence.
These can be gleaned from an
excerpt from Chernenko's book,
"Human Rights in Soviet
Society," published in 1981 by
Novosti:
"AS FOR emigration, the
relevant Soviet legislation and
rules are fully in accord with the
International Covenant on Civil
and Political Rights, which says,
among other things, that the
right to go abroad may be limited
in certain cases where it is neces-
sary 'to protect national security,
public order, public health or
morals or the rights and freedom
of others.' In some cases, the
permission to emigrate may be
postponed until the applicant's
close relatives have settled their
affairs, including material
matters.
"A decision'on the application
for permission to emigrate may
be postponed in the case of
persons possessing state secrets
or those who have recently
undergone training in important
military fields. Upon the expira-
tion of the established time limit
for secrecy, the application for
emigration is reconsidered. We
have no other causes for not
allowing emigration."
While narrow and restrictive in
its interpretation of international
human rights and law, it none-
theless, on an overall basis,
avoids a totally negative
response to the issue of emigra-
tion rights. Even as Brezhnev
took special pride in the Helsinki
Final Act without, however,
giving any focus to its "reunion
of families" features, so, too, can
it be expected that Chernenko,
like his late protector, and unlike
Andropov, will give at least lip
service to the Helsinki acord.
Indeed, in the above-mentioned
work, Chernenko makes favor-
able reference to Helsinki.
LIKE BREZHNEV, too, the
new General Secretary chose in
his "human rights" work, to
denounce anti-Semitism as a
"nationalistic aberration" which -
is "alien to socialism." Brezhnev
had condemned anti-Semitism in
this manner, extremely rare for a
Party leader, at the 26th Party
Congress in February, 1981. The
condemnation had no doubt been
a response to the sharp criticism
to which the USSR had been
subjected in the area of anti-
Semitism at the Madrid Confer-
ence of Helsinki signatories.
Brezhnev may also have been
fearful about the upsurge of espe-
cially virulent anti-Jewish propa-
ganda and activity within the
USSR which could produce
unmanageable and dangerous
consequences. JTA Feature

Rabbi Dr. Louis Sacks
"TODAY"
By RABBI DR. LOUIS L. SACKS
Congregation Anabei Emuna
"So teach us to number our days that we may acquire a heart
of wisdom." So prayed Moses, the man of G-d, a semineal prayer
recited by the traditional Jew on each Sabbath, holiday and holy
day.
How much more meaningful and enriched our lives would be if
we understood properly the value of time as underscored by
Moses our Teacher. Too often time is what we want most but
what we use worst. Again and again we are cautioned not to
waste time because "That's the stuff life's made of." We are
enjoined to use time wisely. We are admonished that yesterday
cannot be recalled; tomorrow cannot be assured; only today is
ours, which if we procrastinate, we lose. And what we lose is lost
forever.
The older we get, the more we value time. We realize that time
rushed by like a restless stream. How wise was the savant who
observed, "Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and
sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes.
No reward is offered, for they are gone forever."
Kach new day of the year beckons us to intensify our faith in
G-d and Torah, to hope for the future, and to quest for the
sanctities of our peerless tradition. It calls us to live today, to
create today, to produce and grow today. It pleads with us not
to postpone living; that when we made a daily withdrawal from
the ever-decreasing bank of time, that we use this most precious
commodity wisely and creatively.
Today is sufficient for
The burdens we must bear;
Today is ours, to live, to love,
Our wealth to share.
Tomorrow never comes to us.
And yesterday is gone.
Therefore, today is all the time
We have to build upon.
Tomorrow is far away
As yesterday, it seemed
So wake up, make full use
Do the things you dreamed.
A famed and insightful student of human nature has written
directly to this theme:
"1 believe that only one person in a thousand knows the trick
of really living in the present. Most of us spend fifty-nine
minutes an hour living in the past, with regret for lost joys or
shame for things badly done both utterly useless and
weakening, or in a future that we either long for or dread. Yet,
the past is gone beyond prayer, and every minute we spend in
the vain effort to anticipate the future is a moment lost. There is
only one world, the world pressing against you at this minute.
There is only one minute in which you are alive, this minute
The only way to live is by accepting each minute as an
unrepeatable miracle. Which is exactly what it is a Miracle
and Unrepeatable."
The recognition that each day is another gift from G-d, that
each day is an occasion for joy and gladness, can make us aware
of the extraordinary privilege of being alive right here and now.
This awareness and cognizance can inspire us to live each day
more fully and more fruitfully. Yesterday is a canceled check,
and tomorrow is a promissory note. Only today is cash at hand
for us to spend. Today is not a parenthesis between yesterday
and tomorrow. Good things can happen, do happen, and should
happen today, if we make sure that they happen if we learn
how to live today.
As we grow older and as the years fleet by, may we grasp, ever
more intensely the sage and sagacious words of the Psalmist,
"This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be
glad in it."

Barbie Collaborator
On Government Pension
AMSTERDAM -
(JTA) A collaborator
with Nazi war criminal
Klaus Barbie has been re-
ceiving a Dutch resistance
pension of 100,000 Guilders
(about $33,000) a year for
the past 10 years, it was
disclosed here.
The disclosure has prompted a
further investigation into the
wartime activities of GuQIaume
Meertens and a decision by the
pension authority to suspend
payment pending its outcome.
Meertens who lives in Spain, is
believed to have collected over
one million Guilders to date. He
may be forced to refund the
amount if it is proven that he
deliberately misled the pension
fund.
THE PENSION came to light
in the course of an examination of
Barbie's activities in Nazi-
occupied Holland during World
War II before he was transferred
by the Gestapo to Lyon. France.
He is now awaiting trial there for
crimes against humanity. The
examination was conducted by
Paul Brilman special prosecutor
investigating war criminals in
Holland.
Meertens was arrested by the
Germans in the early days of the
occupation for anti-Nazi ac-
tivities. While in prison at
Scheveningen he agreed to work
for his captors. He waa released
and. for about a year thereafter,
supplied Barbie with information
about Dutch resistance groups.

Angry Mood Seizes Israel
In Washington State Depart-
ment deputy spokesman Alan
Romberg^aid the U.S. has heard
reports that PLO units have
reinfiltreted into Beirut. "We are
ware of repoita of each rein,
filtration can't confirm it from
here but the reports are very dig.
turbing and we take the matter
very seriously Romberg said.
JERUSALEM (JTA)
In the wake of President
Amin Gemayel's abroga-
tion of Lebanon's May 17,
1983 withdrawal and
security agreement with
Israel, the mood here is one
of anger. Interviewed on
Israel television's Arabic
program, Premier Yitzhak
Shamir warned that
abrogation of the pact
would "hurt Lebanon more
than Israel."
He reiterated that with or
without the agreement Israel
would take all necessary steps to
protect its northern borders.
As if to underscore his mood
Israeli warplanes were sent
Sunday to pound three Lebanese
villages which Israeli officials
described as guerrilla strong-
holds. Two of the villages were
situated east of Beirut. The third
was located near the southern
Lebanese town of Damour.
Reports from Beirut said that
Gemayel has signed a peace plan
worked out by Saudi Arabia
which calls for abrogation of the
May 17 agreement and for the
replacement of the multinational
force in Beirut by a United
Nations force. The eight-point
plan has been sent to Damascus
for approval by Syria which is
POC May Face
New Term
NEW YORK (JTA) _
Former Soviet Jewish Prisoner o\
Conscience Grigory Goldshtein a
physicist from Tbilisi may face a
new three to five year prison
term according to information
obtained by the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ).
Accused of taking advantage of
his position at the Central
Bureau of Statistics he was
informed that his file was trans-
ferred to a local prosecutor. The
NCSJ reported that Goldshtein
protested the move with a de-
tailed letter to the First Secretary
of the Georgia Republic's
Communist Party.
In another development the
NCSJ reported that Iosif Begun
the Hebrew teacher and Jewish
activist who was sentenced last
October to seven years imprison-
ment to be followed by five years
of internal exile for "anti-Soviet"
activities has been transferred to
a "corrective labor camp" in
Perm some 600 miles east of
Vladimir where he was serving
his prison sentence.

IN WASHINGTON.
Administration officials con-
firmed that Gemayel has signed
the new plan but according to
White House spokesman Larry
Speakes "We have problems
with certain elements of the
plan." He would not elaborate
Earlier Shamir repeated what
he told the Knesset that Israel
would not oppose the French
efforts for a new UN force in
Lebanon to replace the MNF. He
stressed however that the UN
would not protect Israel's nor-
thern border. Israel would require
better means for that and did not
consider a UN force equipped or
motivated to prevent the return
of Palestine Liberation Organ-
ization fighters to south
Lebanon.
According to Shamir however
a UN force could be helpful as a
buffer between the Israel Defense
Force and the Forces of Syria and
its allies now concentrated
further north.
SHAMIR SENT a stern
warning to the Druze in Lebanon
not to act counter to Israel's
interests unless they wanted to
find themselves in direct conflict
with the IDF and their Israeli
Druze brethren serving in the
IDF.
There is also concern in
government circles over reports
that a considerable number of
PLO fighters are incorporated in
the Druze forces which are
winding up their successful
offensive against the Lebanese
army.
The Druze have joined up with
Shiite Moslem militias in the
southern suburbs of Beirut.
According to some reports PLO
elements have deployed in
villages only a few kilometers
north of the IDF lines along the
A wall River in south Lebanon.
Israeli sources have reported
however that the Druze renewed
their pledge that the PLO would
not be permitted to operate freely
in the area and that once the
fighting ceased the PLO units
would be transferred further
north to the Bahamdoun-Aley
district in the Shouf mountains.

Mrs. Monge will receive the
South County Jewish Federation
Humanitarian award on behalf of
her efforts and commitment to
Israel and worldwide Jewry.
Mrs. Monge is the daughter of
Polish Jews who immigrated to
Costa Rica in the 1920's, the first
Ashkenazi Jews in Costa Rica.
At present, there are ap-
proximately 3,000 Jews in Costa
Rica, most of whom live in San
Jose. The majority came from
Poland, from the shtetls of
Jelekov and Kosnitz.
The Jewish community is very
unified; intermarriage is rare.
They have a mikvah, cemetery,
synagogue, Hebrew school, and
religious school teachers from
Israel. It is quite common for
Costa Rican Jewish teenagers to
live on a Kibbutz in Israel for six
months to one year after high
school graduation. Approxi-
mately 98 percent of the Jewish
youth in Costa Rica receive an
orthodox orientation, but as Mrs.
Monge explains, "We are not
orthodox in practice, but as a
community we keep the
traditions."

Doris Yankelewitz was married
to Louis Alberto Monge in 1966,
who is a Roman Catholic. Her
Zionist beliefs were strong, and
she instilled the strength of her
convictions into her husband.
When he was a candidate for the
Presidency, one of his promises
was to open the Costa Rican
embassy in Jerusalem. Following
his election, he succeeded in his
goal. To date, Costa Rica is the
only nation to recognize Jeru-
salem as the capital of Israel.

that his government "is now

Meanwhile Foxman disclosed
a number of other developments
in connection with Rauff:
B'nai B'rith of Chile acting
on behalf of B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional, presented a letter to
Interior Minister Onofre jarpa
urging him to favorably consider
the request of the government of
Israel that Rauff be expelled.
Leaders of the Peruvian
Jewish community met in Lima
with Chilean Embassy officials to
also call for Rauff expulsion for
his "crimes against humanity."
They told the Chilean diplomats
that the statute of limitations
does not apply to such Crimea.
There has been increasing
support from the non-Jewish
community of Chile to expel
Rauff with demonstrators
outside his home calling him a
"Nazi assassin" and demanding
he be tried for war crimes.
Foxman said that because the
government forced thousands of
Chileans into exile for political
reasons many in Chile the war
criminal Walter Rauff or those
deprived of their nationality and

By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) -
Franz Josef Strauss' unan-
nounced, unofficial trip to
Syria has dismayed the
Bonn government and
raised speculation as to the
precise intentions behind
the conservative Bavarian
leader's visit to Damascus
for talks with President
Hafez Assad.
Strauss heads the Christian
Social Union the ruling party in
Bavaria and a close ally of
Chancellor Helmut Kohl's
Christian Democratic Union
(CDU). But Kohl was reported to
have been surprised and angered
on his return from the funeral of
Yuri Andropov in Moscow to
leam of Strauss' self-appointed
mission.
AIDES TO Strauss said he
was responding to a personal
invitation from Assad at a time
when contacts between
Damascus and the West are at an
extremely delicate stage owing to
the situation in Lebanon and the
unresolved Arab-Israeli conflict.
They refused to say whether
Strauss considered his mission to
be an attempt to mediate bet-
ween the United States and
Syria. He had not been asked to
undertake such a role.
There are also rumors that
Strauas may be trying to open
the way for weapons sales to
Syria by Bavarian based arms
manufacturers. Sources here
recall that he initiated joint
Franco-German arms sales to
Syria several years ago. a deal
approved by the Bonn govern-
ment at the time because it in-
volved weapons systems jointly
produced by France and West
Germany.
But according to many ob-
servers, the Bavarian leader's
venture into personal diplomacy
in the Middle East may be an
attempt to undermine the posi-
tion of Foreign Minister Hans-
Dietrich Genscher a leader of the
small Free Democratic Party
(FDP) which is the CDU's coali-
tion partner.
GENSCHER HAD served as
Foreign Minister in the Social
Democratic Party (SPD)-FPD
coalition headed by former
Chancellor Helmut Schmidt.
When the SPD was unseated by
the CDU in last year's elections,
Strauss sought to replace
Genscher as Foreign Minister
and was angered when Kohl
refused to appoint him. He has
since been pressing for a govern-
ment shuffle that would reduce
the influence of the FDP which
represents a liberal element in
Kohl's coalition.
Spokesman for the SPD op-
position said today that Strauss'
trip to Syria and his other foreign
policy activities damage West
Germany's reputation and are a
burden on relations with other
countries. The Foreign Ministry
made it clear that Strauss had
not been assigned any mission on
the government's behalf.
