between Peres and U.S.
Defense Secretary Caspar
After two days of meetings
with Peres and Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin Weinberger left
for Amman, Jordan. Before
coming to Israel, he visited Cairo
to talk to officials. Peres was
accompanied at his meeting with
Weinberger by Rabin and
Deputy Premier and Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
THE OFFICIAL statement
was plainly intended, among
other things, to end speculation
here regarding possible differ-
ences between the three top
ministers over the government's
Weinberger, in remarks to the
press, praised Israel's desire tn
get out of Lebanon, provided
adequate security measures could
be obtained. The Israeli state-
ment said Israel's conditions
included that Syria would not ad-
vance further south than its
Israel also seeks undertakings
from Syria, probably tacit, to
prevent terrorist incursions
southwards toward the border.
The Israeli statement envisaged
a deployment of the United
Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UN I FID along a wider
and deeper front than at present.
Reports from Beirut said the
Lebanese government was ready
to hold military talks with Israel
under UNIFIL auspices. Israel
has already signalled its agree-
ment to such talks. But Peres
and Rabin stressed at the
Cabinet meeting that the ses-
sions would not be regarded as a
revival of the long-dead Mixed
Armistice Commission, created
under the 1949 armistice accords.
THE SPECULATION over
Israel's Lebanon policy followed
statements by Peres, in the U.S.
and here, that the Cabinet might
decide soon on a partial with-
drawal from the Western sector if
the Syrians refuse to each agree-
ment on an overall withdrawal-
Circles close to Rabin said they
felt such talk waa not conducive
to a realistic and forthcoming
approach from Damascus. But
circles close to Peres argued that
the "threat" of a unilateral
partial pullback implying that
the Israel Defense Force would
dig in deeper on the eastern front
of south Lebanon, where it ar-
tillery threatens Damascus
would encourage the Syrians to
agree to the security provisions
that Israel requires.

News in Brief
Ex-CIA Man Wants Nazi
Criminal to Stay in U.S.
By JTA Services
NEW YORK In a blatant apologia for the utilization of Nazi
war criminal* by the United States, Ray Clinea, who was the number
two man in the Central Intelligence Agency from its inception until his
retirement in 1969, said that accused Nazi war criminal Arthur
Rudolphs role in a slave labor camp should be overlooked in return for
his later contributions as a missile scientist in the American space
Clines said in answer to a question by Ted Koppel, host of ABC-
TV's "Nightline" program which aired Oct. 18, that Rudolph and
others who may have murdered thousands of innocent victims during
World War II had paid their debts to society by providing security
and technology gains for the American government.
Sharon Opens Political Hornet's Nest
JERUSALEM Industry and Commerce Minister Ariel Sharon
opened a political hornet's nest this week by expressing opposition to
government plans to base an Israeli withdrawal from south Lebanon
on the deployment of united Nations Interim Force in Lebanon
(UNIFIL) troops in that area and by attacking government plans to
improve the quality of life for Arabs in Judaea and Samaria.
In a sharp attack on the withdrawal plans, Sharon told Radio
Israel that "this government will survive only if it concentrates on
economic problems and on condition that it avoids action on other
areas" where differences between Likud and Labor cannot be bridged.
He warned that Likud did not agree to a national unity government to
serve as a cover for Labor's defense and foreign affairs plans, which he
described as "disastrous."
Illegal Hitler Silver Medals Surface in Vienna
VIENNA Illegal silver medals bearing the face of Adolf Hitler
have surfaced in Vienna, the Austrian newspaper Kurier, reports.
The medals, being sold for 200 schillings ($10). show the Third
Reich's eagle and the motto of the Third Reich, "Ein Volk, Ein Reich,
Ein Fuehrer" (One People. One Government, One Leader) on the
reverse side. Austrian police have not yet been able to establish the
source of these medals.
Morocco Bars Entry of Two Israelis
PARIS Israeli writer and philosopher Aharon Amir has
returned to Israel after Morocco denied him entry to attend an in-
ternational conference in Marrakesh. Amir and another Israeli, writer
and Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Andre Chouraqui, had been invited to
the World Conference on Poetry by its chairman, former Senegalese
President Leopold Senghor.
Morocco's refusal to grant them entry visas, in spite of earlier
promises, is seen here as a definite break with past Moroccan policy
and is interpreted as a gesture to Libya with which it signed an
alliance last month.
Jewish Leader Named to UN Delegation
PARIS The chairman of the French section of the World
Jewish Congress, Sen. Michel Dreyfus-Schmidt, has been named by
France to its delegation at the United Nations General Assembly
session currently meeting in New York.
A dose associate of President Francois Mitterrand, Dreyfus-
Schmidt has represented Belfort in the Senate since 1980.
Shultz Vows U.S. Aid for Soviet Jews
WASHINGTON Secretary of State George Shultz pledged
that as the United States intends to build a "new, more constructive
period in Soviet-American relations" following President Reagan's
recent meeting with Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko, it will
continue to stress the plight of Soviet Jews and other human rights
"I hope that no one, either in the Soviet Union or in this country,
seriously entertains the idea that once negotiations are underway, the
United States will refrain from raising our human rights concerns,"
Shultz told the Leadership Assembly of the Naitonal Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) at the Capital Hilton Hotel.
AJComm. Hails Vatican Tie Possibility
NEW YORK The American Jewish Committee has welcomed a
report that the Vatican "favors the diplomatic recognition of Israel."
The statement was issued by Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum, director of
international relations for the Committee, who said the agency's
comment was based on an NBC news report from Rome that the
Vatican now favors such a move.
Tanenbaum, who until recently had been the AJCommittee's
director of interreligious affairs and who is presently in charge of the
committee's relationship with the Vatican, also said "as we have
informed Vatican authorities during a number of conversations in
recent years, the establishment of diplomatic relations between the
Holy See and the State of Israel would be a significant contribution to
the cause of peace and reconciliation in the Middle East." On Monday
the Vatican denied that it favors closer relations with the Jewish
Peres: Hussein's Refusal Not Last Word
BONN Israeli Premier Shimon Peres believes King Hussein's
refusal so far to enter peace negotiations with Israel is not his last
word and indicated there would be wide scope for bargaining once
negotiations between Israel and Jordan get underway, according to an
interview with the Israeli leader published in the mass-circulation
West German news magazine, Der Spiegel.
Peres also remarked that experience shows that the outcome of
peace negotiations always differs from the initial positions of the
parties involved, Der Spiegel reported.
South Africa's Foreign Minister to Visit
JERUSALEM Foreign Minister Pik Botha of South Africa is
scheduled to visit Israel next month, but Israeli officials said that the
visit will be a private one in which he will see holy sites. He is slated to
arrive here Nov. 4 on his way to West Germany. Although the visit is
not considered official, Botha is expected to meet with Deputy
Premier and Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
The newspaper Maariu reported that Israeli officials were con-
cerned that attempts to renew diplomatic relations with Black African
nations would be harmed by Botha's visit. Shamir said last week after
returning from talks at the United Nations that Israel's relations with
the Third World countries, especially in Black Africa, were improving.
In Ancient China
Jewish Grave Found in Fujian
NEW YORK (JTA) -
An ancient undecorated
tombstone among several
from the ancient Yuan
Dyansty (1271-1368) un-
earthed in the 1950's near
Quanzhou in Fujian pro-
vince probably marked a
Jewish grave, according to
Sidney Shapiro, an Ameri-
can-born scholar who has
lived in China for 37 years.
Shapiro said in an interview
with the Xinhau News Agency at
his home in Beijing, "The stone is
an indication of a Jewish
presence during the Yuan
Dynasty. They are also men-
tioned in official Yuan
HE TOLD Xinhau that
"Judaism is opposed to 'graven
images' and has no special
decorations or markings on its
tombstones. The other stones
(unearthed near Quanzhou) are
all engraved with various
religious phrases and symbols,
such as those of the Nestorians,
Catholics and Moslems."
Shapiro, who began studying
China's ancient Jews and
collecting essays of Chinese
scholars on the subject in 1982,
said that studies by Chinese
scholars reveal Jewish traces in
China prior to the Tang Dynasty
(618-907) in various parts of
China. Most Chinese scholars, he
noted, believe Jews began to
arrive in China in large groups
during the Tang Dynasty and the
Song Dynasty (960-1279),
coming mainly by sea with Arab
and Persian merchants.
A 1489 tablet discovered in
Kaifeng in Central China states
that a group of Jews arrived in
that city during the Song
Dynasty. A 1512 inscription of
the same Jewish community sets
the date in Han (206-220). At
present, Shapiro said in his in-
terview, Chinese archaeologists
are seeking more traces of old
THESE FINDINGS, and
more, are detailed in a book
translated and edited by Shapiro
called "Jews in Old China
Studies by Chinese." It includes
12 essays by Chinese scholars
and is scheduled for publication
later this month by Hippocrene
Books in New York.
The book is the first of its kind
in China, Shapiro said. He
thanked the Chinese Social
Sciences Academy, and Chinese
scholars such as the noted ar-
chaeologist Xia Nai and historian
Wong Dujian, for their support
Shapiro began his translations
of the works of Chinese scholars
with a treatise by the late
Chinese historian Chen Yuan
(1880-1971), a pioneer in research
on Jews in China. Chen Yuan had
been the director of the History
Institute of the Chinese Academy
of Social Sciences. Chen's tract
inspired Shapiro and provided
leads to further research. He
travelled to 11 cities and six
provinces and consulted many
Chinese historians snd ar-
chaeologists. Several wrote
special articles for inclusion in
INTEREST IN Chinese Jews
in Western countries began in the
17th Century, Shapiro noted.
Sinologists have since written
about 200 esssys. But their
studies were mainly based on
reports by missionaries such as
Mateo Ricci, and were generally
confined to the Jewish com-
munity in Kaifeng.

York lawyer, came to China in
1947 and becmae a Chinese

And of course, loan payments is
one way to get a cash flow. And
there are some other ways. But
my own opinion is that it won't

spokesmen refused to discuss any

Strong Jewish Ties
Mean Less Divorce
WALTHAM, Mass. -
(JTA) A clear relation-
ship exists between the rate
of divorce and the commit-
ment of Jews to Judaism,
according to Prof. Jay
Brodbar-Nemzer of the
Center for Modern Jewish
Studies at Brandeis Uni-
He based his conclusion on
data from one of the largest
Jewish population surveys of any
American Jewish community
the 1981 Greater New York
Jewish Population Study, con-
ducted by Steven M. Cohen and
Brodbar-Nemzer said the data
from the polling of more than
4,000 Jewish households in New
York City showed that Jews with
the strongest ties to Judaism and
to the Jewish community also
have a lower probability of ever
having been divorced.
DIVORCE AMONG American
Jews parallels a rise in the
divorce rate of the general
population, but despite the in-
crease in divorce among Jews,
narch has shown that Amer-
ican Jews are less likely to
divorce than other groups. Prof.
Brodbar-Nemzer aserted that
the lower rate of divorce mn"*g
Jews stems from Judaic tradi-
tions that stress group commit-
ment and values of family sta-
bihty and cohesion.
The 1981 study showed that
the lowest rate of divorce among
Jews is among Orthodox Jews,
with a alight increase in the rate
for Conservative Jews. He said
Reform Jews divorce at twice the
rate of Orthodox Jews. Jews who
do not identify with any of the
major Jewish denominations
divorce at four rimes the rate of
The Brsndeis scholar said a
similar pattern was found bet-
ween observance of ritual and the
divorce rate. Those Jews who
were highly observant had the
lowest divorce rate, with the rate
increasing as the number of
rituals observed decreased. The
study also showed that Jews who
are synagogue members are half
at likely to have been divorced,
THE STUDY also analysed
the ethnic component of Jewish
identity, because Jewishness
describes identification with an
ethnic group, as well as with a
religion, he declared.
Ethnic identification was
divided into categories which
included friendships with Jews,
placing s value on living in
Jewish neighborhoods, belonging
to Jewish organizations and
contributing to Jewish causes.
Brodbar-Nemzer said it was
found that Jews who had Jewish
friends, or who felt it was import-
ant to live in Jewish neighbor-
hoods, or who belonged to Jewish
organizations were less likely to
have ever been divorced. In fact,
he said, Jewish ethnic identifica-
tion was accompanied by lower
divorce rates even among Jews
who reported little religious
HE SAID IT was clear "that
there is a direct relationship
between the extent of a person's
Jewish commitment and a
disinclination toward divorce. It
is likely that this relationship
results from pre-existing atti-
tudes toward the family and
family stability, in spite,
perhaps, of participation in
secular life that includes pulls in
the opposite direction/'
He argued that the lower
divorce rate among Jews
"reflects an attempt to redress
the balance on the side of group

repayment of $500 million
in debt to the Unitd States
without asking for Ameri-

administration feels this

Under the law which provided
U.S. loan aid to Israel, "there can

deputy spokesman Alan Rom-

about the Israeli statement.

Shultz added that "various

Call for Unity
Black-Jewish Front Urged in Philly
(JTA) A call for the res-
toration of a united Black-
Jewish action front to work
together for improved mi-
nority conditions was made
here Oct. 16 at special cere-
monies at Independence
Hall marking "A Day of
Social Concern" sponsored
by the Social Action Com-
mittee of the Rabbinical
Assembly. The Assembly
represents 1,200 Conserva-
tive rabbis internationally
and claims to represent 1 &
million Conservative Jews
in this country.
The call said that despite their
differences, Jews and Blacks
must restore the coalition of the
1960's and work together in such
areas ss education and job oppor-
tunities, urban renewal and the
restoration of the ecological
health of the nation's environ-
"WE IN the Jewish commu-
nity are repelled by racial and
religious bigotry of any land and
are frightened at a spectre of anti-
Semitism, particularly that
echoed in the current political
campaign," asserted Rabbi Alex-
ander Shapiro, president of the
Rabbinical Assembly. "We must
not permit the statements of
either a Jesse Jackson or s Rev.
(Louis) Farrakhan to prevent an
alliance of Blacks and Jews
working together for the social
improvement of all minorities in
A similar declaration was made
by Marshall Wolke, president of
the United Synagogue of
America, representing Conserva-
tive Judaism's 860 synagogues.
He said, "We reaffirm the
historic Jewish commitment to
civil rights, which is underscored
by the positive contact existing
between the Black and Jewish
communities, while deploring the
demagogic utterings of Black
extremists and the resultant
distortion of Black-Jewish rela-
"We encourage and support all
efforts to reestablish a viable,

|Your help is needed.
Karen Weiss, who is active in
Federation work, filed the
[following report on this matter. I
personally endorse her position,
as do the community leaders who
opposed Proposition I.
In the Nov. 6 general election
justices Raymond Ehrlich and
nder Shaw of the Florida
Supreme Court will appear on the
allot along with judges of
lorida's District Courts of
Appeal. They do so under the
nerit retention system which was
placed in the State Constitution
Rabbi Bruce S. Warshal
The merit retention system
allows the voters the opportunity
to determine each candidate on
his own merit by voting either
"yes" or "no" on the question of
whether they should be continued
in office for another six-year term
based on their judicial record and
performance to date.
The judges have no opposition
candidates, and, even in the face
of active opposition, cannot
actively campaign for their own
retention in office.
Justice Ehrlich, the highest-
ranking Jewish official in
Florida s judicial branch of
government, and Justice Shaw,
the highest ranking black official,
are not allowed to run on their
record, competency and
qualifications, but are being
actively opposed by George
Schulte because of the Supreme
Court's recent decision to strike
Proposition I from the November
ballot. Schulte, who was a
sponsor of Proposition I, is
pursuing hia opposition to
Justices Ehrlich and Shaw as a
personal vendetta. Claiming on
radio and in newspapers that
these men took away the public's
right to vote on Proposition I, he
is committed to jeopardizing the
merit retention system and, more
important, threatens the judicial
system. He claims that after
defrocking these two men, he will
attack the next pair of judges two
years from now.
Justices Ehrlich and Shaw,
who did not rule on the merits of
Proposition I but on its consti-
tutionality, are not opposed to
Schulte's exercise of his First
Amendment right to freedom of
speech. They believe, however,
that the judicial system is being
seriously threatened through his
intimidation. The justices'
concern for the merit retention
system system is well grounded.
Instead of being judged by the
voters on their competency and
qualifications, Schulte desires to
have the voters reject them
Exhibit of German Youth Affairs
In Nazi Era Said To Boomerang
BONN (JTA) An
exhibition in Frankfurt
portraying with authentic
artifacts and documents
the life of German youth
during the Nazi era has
drawn criticism from some
Jewish quarters. Its
purpose, according to the
directors of the municipal
museum, is to depict how
youths were seduced by
Nazi propaganda and
symbols. But, some ob-
servers contend, it may be
counter-productive. It has,
in fact, become a magnet
for neo-Nazi groups from all
over the Federal Republic.
Jewish critics have not ex-
pressed their specific objections
in public. The articles displayed
give a comprehensive picture of
the Germany of the 1930'ss and
'40s. Those who mounted the
exhibition apparently wanted it
to speak for itself and accord-
ingly, explanations and clarifica-
tions are rare. The display is
there without much commentary.
FOR THAT reason, many
argue, it could revive nation-
alistic sentiments and serve as a
means for present-day Germans
to identify with the Nazis. Neo-
Nazi groups have already come to
the museum on pilgrimages and
seem delighted with the exhibi-
Dr. Juergen Steen, a museum
official, told an interviewer that
he was guided by the purpose of
showing the young generation
and the general public how the
Nazis achieved their popularity
with German youth a half cen-
tury ago. But, he added, the
exhibition also stresses the
contemporary youth movements
which rejected Nazi ideas or even
actively opposed Nazi rule.

WHEN YOU CLOSE THE CURTAIN
TO VOTE, WILL YOU BE CLOSING
IT ON YOURSELF?
Can It Happen Here? A Time For Soul Searching.
For The First Time, In The Depths Of My Soul, I Wonder-
What Does The Democratic Party Really Stand For?
HAVE YOU ASKED YOURSELF THE SAME QUESTIONS
I AM ASKING MYSELF?
Where is the Democratic Party going in 1984? Has its direction actually changed from liberalism to an undemocratic
ideology? From speaking out against bigotry to remaining silent to gain votes? I cannot forget that less than 50 years ago
in Germany, the people stood silently by while the Nazis smashed synagogues and beat and murdered Jews. The silence
was devastating. It was a silence heard round the world. A silence that allowed a genocide unparalleled in the history
of mankind. I ask myself how can I vote for a party that would compromise religious freedom for a few votes?
THE ANSWERS I GET ALARM ME.
I see a party embracing a would-be candidate who sounds as if he is a spokesman for The Third World.
I see a party failing to speak out against overt anti-Semitism.
I see a party more interested in party unity than uniting against what is right and just.
I see a party that has failed to speak out strongly against the Russians' treatment of its Jews and dissidents such as Sakharov.
I see a party unclear about the strengths and future of America.
AND SO I HAVE BEEN SEARCHING FOR BETTER ANSWERS
IN THIS IMPORTANT ELECTION YEAR.
I find myself agreeing with what President Reagan and the Republican Party are saying and doing.
I find a Party and a President who speak out against anti-Semitism.
I find a Party and a President who speak out against the venom of Louis Farrakhan.
1 find a Party and a President who speak out to the UN to stop its anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic tirades.
1 find a Party and a President who are not naive and gullible about the policies and plans of the Soviet Union.
I find a Party and a President that Israel says is one of the best administrations they have ever dealt with. One that fully realizes
the importance of Israel as a friend and strategic ally.
1 find a Party and President who have consistently come to the aid of our friends and allies around the world.
/ am taking the time and my own money to express all this because I believe this is a time for soul searching. When I close
the curtain of the voting booth I want to be sure I'm not closing it around my future as a Jew, an American and a patriot.
I have examined the issues that are important to me and I know where I'm going.
Because I Believe In Democracy,
I AM VOTING REPUBLICAN.
I am not raising funds so please
do not send money, just your comments.
This is a personally paid ad to express my personal feeling.

School Board HopefulsDescribe Their Stance
- Rabbis Ask Voters To Look
Three pairs of candidates will
each face each other in a run-off
election next Tuesday for seats
on the Palm Beach County
School Board for districts 1, 8
Apart from general issues con-
cerning school policies on disci-
pline, educational standards,
teachers' salaries and merit pay,
a special focus of this election has
been separation of church and
state: should prayer in schools be
sanctioned, in any form? Should
"science of creationism" be
taught? Should religious orga-
nizations some of which may
have proselytizing goals be
given access to school facilities
(and perhaps access to students,
as a result)?
The rabbis of South County, as
well as some of the Christian
clergymen, have expressed con-
cern over the candidates' stands
on these questions. The Jewish
Floridian, therefore, has asked
tns candidates to state their posi-

youth will compare and discuss

countries. The program is
scheduled for the evening of
Sunday, Nov. 18.
Shelly Boothe, chair of the
New Leadership Board, will
represent the South County area
of Israel Bonds at a national
retreat program, in which more
than 150 young leaders will
convene from all over the U.S.
and Canada. The retreat will take
place at the Orlando Marriott
Inn, Nov. 9-12. Speakers at this
program will include top Israeli
government officials and Israel
Bonds campaign cabinet officers.

these programs may be obtained

Dead Sea in Israel. Schorr and

enthused by the project they
hope to start a similar facility in

climate similar to that of Israel.
The New Leadership Board
holds parlor parties of this nature
throughout the year, according to
Shelly Boothe, with the primary

members to join the partnership
by purchasing a certificate or

way of expressing their strong
feelings about Israel's survival.
she has been misrepresented in
some of the oress reports, told
the The Floridian she is opposed
to any type of religious indoc-
trination in the school, and has a
record of fighting against it in the
past. She is against verbal prayer
but favors silent meditation,
even for children who are taught
by their parents not to believe in
any deity. This, she says, does
not involve any particular reli-
gious orientation. She is opposed
to the teaching of "creationism."
As to religious organizations,
Ms. Bjork says she "would not
want anyone proselytizing my
kids," but it remains to be seen
what the courts would have to
say about religious organizations
using school facilities. "None of
the candidates has a clear answer
to this problem," Ms. Bjork
added, "and it's something the
school board will have to find
ways to deal with, without
creating animosity between
various segments of the commu-
Wardwell states clearly that he
is "for a moment of silence and
the pledge of allegiance but no

the teaching of creationsim, and
is in favor of permitting any
organization access to school
facilities after school hours,
without discrimination. "They
are all taxpayers, and are all en-
titled to equal access."

3. The opening of school facilities to the activities of various
proselytizing religious groups.

positions of the candidates on these issues and to vote ac-
cordingly on election day.
oppose any form of prayer in-
cluding silent meditation, and to
oppose teaching of creationism,
but in favor of classroom discus-
sion of ethics and moral issues.
He supports restricting religious
clubs to after-school hours.
Johnston said she is complete-
ly opposed to prayer in schools;
"it belongs at home or in the
church or synagogue." She is
explicitly opposed to teaching of
creationism, and is not sure how
to handle the problem of religious
clubs meeting in the school
even after hours. The school
board would have to find ways to
draw a line somewhere, to distin-
guish between cultist groups and
legitimate clubs, she said.
District 7 has Lavoise Taylor
Stepherson facing Joseph Bel-
luccio. Ms. Stepherson says she
is not in favor of organized prayer
as part of the school program, she
is opposed to teaching of crea-
tionism; and believes any reli-
gious group which does not in-
fringe on the U.S. Constitution
should be permitted access to
facilities after school hours, but

Belluccio is against any form of

wide. The ratio was even higher
in the primary voting. One
percent equals about 750,000
votes. In New York, about a third
of all voters in the Democratic
primary were Jews.
In key cities with a substantial
number of Jewish residents such
as New York, Los Angeles,
Newark, Philadelphia, and
Chicago, Jewish votes could
make the difference between
victory and defeat for candidates
running for president since
Jewish voters are concentrated in
these Electoral College states.
Most of the other white voters
voted for Gerald Ford in the 1976
elections, but about 4 of 5 Jewish
voters cast their ballots for
Jimmy Carter. As a result, Carter
took New York, and with it, the
UNTIL THE mid-1970's
Democratic presidential candi-
dates could count on receiving at
least two-thirds of the Jewish
votes. This pattern was broken in
1980 when Carter was beaten by
Reagan: only 45 percent of the
Jewish voters last their ballots
for Carter; 40 percent voted for
Reagan, and 15 percent voted for
John Anderson, the independent
candidate. A plurality of men
voted for Reagan, with about
three-quarters of them residing in
predominantly Orthodox Jewish
election districts. The majority of
Jewish women voted for Carter.
Democrats hope that the 1980
vote was an aberration. Many
Jewish voters were dissatisfied
with Carter for anti-Israel actions
of his administration.
Republicans prefer to view the
1980 voting by Jews as a trend.
They assert that Jews in the
United States are more and more
inclined to vote Republican. They
are especially interested in the 15
percent of the Jewish votes which
Anderson received. Were these
Jewish voters basically dis-
affected Democrats who will
return to the party in this year's
election, or have they severed
their traditional affiliation and
moved to the Republicans?
Some politicians, political
scientists and commentators may
speak of the existence of a
"Jewish vote," but there is no
organized Jewish vote. There are
striking contrasts between dif-
ferent kinds of Jewish voters.
JEWISH VOTERS do not
make up a single-issue bloc. They
are no longer a monolithic poli-
tical community, as they were a
generation or two ago. A plural-
ity of them consider themselves
remainder consists of about two
"liberals" to every "con-
In the elections this year, un-
predictability of Jewish voting
patterns coupled with demo-
graphic changes could alter
Jewish responses to political
events. The majority of Jewish
voters still live in Northeastern
and Midwestern metropolitan
areas, but more and more Jews
are moving West and South to
the "Sun Belt." Even in older
areas, urban concentrations are
breaking up as Jews move to the
outer suburbs or satellite small
towns. Consequently, the number
of districts where Jews consti-
tuted a strong element in voting
may decline. However, Jews are
still a significant factor in Amer-
ican politics. They are involved at
all levels of political activity.
Jewish leaders believe that the
ultimate patterns of Jewish
voting will depend on the candi-
dates' positions on a few key
issues. They point out that, this
year, extremist wings in both
maior Darties supported posi-
tions that most Jews see as inim-
ical to Jewish interests. Jewish
organizations are disturbed by
the emergence of anti-Semitism
in the Democratic primaries and
of the party's failure to oppose
racial quotas in its platform; also
by the prominence given to those
who would move American
foreign policy in directions harm-
ful to Israel. Although these
forces did not win in the nomina-
tion for president, they have
pledged to use their leverage to
influence the nominees.
JEWISH LEADERS are also
disturbed by trends in the
Republican Party, especially by
the dominance of a powerful
group of fundamentalists who
seek to put religion in politics.
Jewish voters are urged by lead-
ing Jewish organizations to
repudiate the extreme positions
of both Democrats and Rep-
The issues concerning equal
opportunity and affirmative
action policies have major im-
plications for Jews as individuals
and organizationally for their
impact on the climate of inter-
group relations. The two parties
have sharply different positions
on these issues.
Leaders of major Jewish
organizations emphasize that

TEL AVIV (JTA) De-
fense Minister Yitzhak Rabin re-
jected an appeal last week by the
Peace Now movement to ban a
Simhat Torah celebration in
Hebron planned by Gush
Emunim activists in support of
suspected members of a Jewish
terrorist underground presently
Peace Now warned that the
celebration, including the tradi-
tional Hakafot parade with
Torahs through the town on
Thursday, would be "pure provo-
cation" to the Arab majority in
Hebron. But Rabin maintained
that the celebration was not
illegal and could not be banned.
these and other key issues in
which Jews are deeply interested
will have a lasting impact on the
Jewish comnunity; that they
will affect the political atmos-
phere for years to come after this
year's elections are over; that
their communal and societal
effects will have only begun after
the 1984 elections are over.
DESPITE THE fact that Jews
constitute a higher ratio of voters
than others in the American
population, there are still hun-
dreds of thousands of eligible
Jewish voters who are not regist-
ered to vote. This is because the
Jews are a highly mobile group,
and when people move, many of
them neglect to register.
The Jewish Community
Relations Council of New York
estimates that in the New York
area there are today some 325,000
eligible Jews who are not regis-
tered as voters. This is almost 25
percent of all eligible Jewish
voters in the region. The situa-
tion is similar in other sections of
the country. A large proportion
of the non-registered Jews are
young people. The American
Jewish Congress initiated last
month a national campaign to
stimulate registration of Jews
who are not registered.
E. German Arabs Moving
By DAVID KANTOR
BONN (JTA) A spokes-
man for the West Berlin muni-
cipality has expressed grave
concern over the recent influx
from East Berlin of Palestinian
and Lebanese Arabs expelled
from Sweden last week. He said
West Berlin could not tolerate a
situation in which persons who
do not qualify for the status of
political refugees nevertheless
enter the city and settle there.
The expellees landed at East
Berlin's Schoenefeld Airport and
entered the West by using public
transportation between the two
sections of the divided city. There
is no passport control on the west
side of the Berlin wall and anyone
allowed to leave by the East
Berlin authorities can do so
without being questioned.

The following is brought to our

Rabbinical Association. If there
are topics you would like our
Rabbis to discuss, please submit
them to The Floridian.
Rabbi Sam Silver
Some time ago, Thomas Friedman, who formerly covered
Lebanon for the New York Times and is now the paper's Israel
correspondent, wrote an article for the Sunday Times on the Mideast.
In it he asked himself a question, "Is Arafat a moderate?" His answer
was, "I don't know."
Question: If Mr. Friedman has spent all that time in the Mideast
and doesn't know whether Killer Arafat is a moderate, what, in your
opinion, has he learned? Second Question: Is Mr. Friedman reflecting
the lukewarm attitude towards Judaism and Israel of the owners of his
Mrs. Ferraro is quoted as saying that if ever she were ex-
communicated by her church for her political views, she would resign
whatever public office she occupies.
Question: Before the church condemns Mrs. Ferraro for her views
on abortion, shouldn't it (posthumously) excommunicate Hitler, who
was born a Catholic and baptized as one and was never publicly chided
by the Vatican?
The Reagan administration and the CIA are doing everything
possible to unhorse the rulers of Nicaragua because of its human
Question: Should it not also express condemnation of the con-
ditions within El Salvador where death squads have snuffed out
thousands of innocent lives? Question No. 2: Should we be giving aid
and arms to Saudi Arabia, which gives the PLO a million dollars a day
and could use those arms against only one country, the United States'
ally, the State of Israel?
The UN will be observing its 40th anniversary next year.
Question: Will it celebrate by raising its voice, for the first time,
against international terrorism?
Our Jewish Federation has projected continued increases in the
Jewish population of our area.
Question: Since, despite the increases, some 40 percent of the
Jews in South County don't belong to synagogues and the other fine
Jewish organizaiona of the area, what do you think should be done to
promote greater affiliation? Don't send me your answer. Send it to the
Letters department of this fine newspaper.
