be marked by the entire com-
munity as SOVIET JEWRY
SABBATH. The Rabbinical As-
sociation of South County, in
cooperation with the Community

imously resolved last week to
devote the day to the cause of the
millions of Jews in the Soviet

by their government.

The CRC has supplied each
congregation with a packet of
materials, the result of extensive
research, which contains the
proposed texts, presentations,
factual information on the situa-
tion in the USSR, and sugges-
tions for programs. Among the
suggestions included are: the
an unlit menorah next to that in
which the Hannukah candles are
lit; organizing mass telephone
calls to the White House and post
cards to President Reagan urging
him to act on behalf of Soviet
Jews; and solidarity hunger
strikes to coincide with those
being held by refuseniks who
have been arrested on prefabric-
ated charges and beaten by the
Soviet authorities. Other
program ideas will likely emerge
from within the individual
congregations as well.
The rabbis and the CRC have
urged everyone in the community
to take part in this program and
make it truly a community-wide
act of solidarity.

THE ISRAELI envoy noted
that Iraq, which complains that
Israel violated international law
by attacking its nuclear facilities,
has been repeatedly violating
international law. He said that
Iraq uses chemical warfare in its
war with Iran and that it has
been "happily bombing neutral
shipping in the Gulf. It has killed
and wounded countless innocent
seamen from a do sen countries,
countries having nothing to do
with the Iran-Iraq war."
The ambassador added, "I
raise these matters because a
dose of reality may provide a
salutary shock, even here, and
even to the representatives of
Iraq. But I must also declare my
sorrow that, yet again, so much
importnst work (at the UN) has
had to be derailed because Iraq
insists on indulging one of its
most cherished obsessions."

Nation Buried Demos
But N.Y. Jews Went Heavily for Mondale
(JTA) While President
Reagan won a landslide re-
election victory, most Jews
appear to have voted for his
opponent, former Vice
President Walter Mondale.
Two major exit polls conducted
by television networks gave
Mondale nearly 70 percent of the
Jewish vote. ABC said the
Jewish vote was 69 to 31 in favor
of Mondale, and CBS said its poll
showed Jews voted for Mondale
by a 67 to 32 majority.
This was disputed by the Na-
tional Jewish Coalition for
Reagan-Bush. Bruce Soil, the
Coalition *s executive director,
said its figures showed 44-46
percent of Jews voted for Reagan
which he called "a landslide" in
the Jewish community for the
Republican President.
SOLL ARGUED that the tele
vision exit polls included only
about 200 Jews out of 2.000 per-
sons interviewed. He said the
Jewish Coalition interviewed per-
sons in Jewish areas of Cali-
fornia, New York. Illinois, Penn-
sylvania and Florida. He said
Jews supported Reagan because
his position on Israel, the
economy and family values were
"in sync" with the Jewish com-
However, preliminary returns
from a nationwide American
Jewish Congress exit survey of
Jewish voters showed at least a
70-30 split in favor of Walter
The survey was conducted in
regional areas across the country
by AJCongress representatives
who questioned Jewish voters as
they left the polls. The early re-
turns showed that Mondale's
support among Jewish voters
was about 20 percent higher than
Jimmy Carter's in 1980.
AJCONGRESS analysts say
that part of the difference bet-
ween Mondale and Carter
support is accounted for by the
return to the Democratic Party of
Jews who voted for John
Anderson four years ago.
Anderson, who ran as an in-
dependent in 1980, received
about 10 percent of the Jewish
vote. The Coalition for Reagan-
Bush, the Jewish organization
which supported Republican
candidates in 1980, estimated
that 45 percent of the Jewish
voters helped elect Reagan and
45 percent voted for President
The analysis of the early
AJCongress survey returns
showed the following:
Concern for Israel remains
strong among Jewish voters, but
Israel did not play a significant
role in Jewish voting patterns
this year because both Reagan
and Mondale were perceived as
being sympathetic to Israel.
Jesse Jackson's statements
and behavior in the campaign
and Reagan's support for closer
ties between religion and govern-
ment worried many Jewish
voters. Of those who supported
Reagan, one-half were influenced
by Jackson's role and of those
who supported Mondale, three-
fourths were affected by concern
over Reagan's church-state

cerns, social justice issues
such as the needs of the poor and
aged continue to be a key
factor in explaining the Jewish

ON THE basis of the first
1,500 survey returns,
AJCongress analysts concluded
that while Jewish voters may not
be as liberal as they were 20 or 30
years ago, their economic status
continues to play far less of a role
than it does for other sectors of
the voting population. As a
result, the Jewish community
continues to vote disproportion-
ately liberal.
A final analysis, based on the
full survey returns covering
around 3,000 Jewish voters, will
be available in several weeks.
Israel was not an issue in this
year's Presidential campaign
since both Reagan and Mondale
are considered supporters of the
Jewish State. Reagan did stress
the close alliance with Israel
achieved during his Administra-
tion and statements to this effect
from Premier Shimon Peres and
Deputy Premier and Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir, when
Shamir was premier, were
stressed to the Jewish com-
MONDALE accused Reagan
of abandoning the Camp David
process for his Mideast initiative
and of arming Israel's Arab ene-
mies. The Democratic candidate
also promised to move the United
States embassy in Israel to Jeru-
salem which Reagan opposes.
However, the particular issues
that seemed to be of most con-
cern in the Jewish community
were Jackson's position in the
Mondale campaign and Reagan's
espousal of views that semed to
threaten the separation of church
and state. Many Jews were unde-
cided how to vote until the last

MONDALE accused Reagan
of "moral McCarthyism" by
seeking to brand opponents of
prayer in the schools as anti-
religious. Mondale and his vice

Geraldine Ferraro, also attacked
the Republicans for adopting the
agenda of the Religious Right,
which, they said, would threaten
the separation of church and
Hyman Bookbinder, the
American Jewish Committee's
representative in Washington,
said that while the Jackson issue
had concerned many Jews it
seemed to fade in the past tin
months as fear grew about whit

separation of church and state
He said that in speaking to
Jewish groups across the
country, he found the religious
issue to be the one that worried
them the most.
David Brody. the Washington
representative of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, said that the church-state
issue is what may have convinced
many Jews to vote for Mondale
In addition, he noted that
Mondale has long been close to
the Jewish community and
"Jews don't forget their friends."
Bookbinder said that, in the
last two weeks of the campaign
Republicans had sought to reas-
sure the Jewish conimunity that
the separation of church and
state would not be breached. He
urged the Reagan Administra-
tion, now that it has been re-
flected, to demonstrate to Jews
that this concern was
Herzog, Peres Cable Congrats
To Reagan on Landslide Victory
JERUSALEM (JTA) President Chaim Herzog
and Premier Shimon Peres sent cables of congratulations
to President Reagan on his landslide victory in the
elections. Herzog told Reagan that his reelection has
reaffirmed Reagan's role as the leader of the free world.
Peres said in his message that the American people
have demonstrated their trust and confidence in Reagan's
leadership and that this will be noted by the entire world.
"YOUR GREAT and sincere friendship for the
Israeli democracy, and your committed, consistent and
persistent advocacy of shared values is a source of
strength" for Israel, Peres wrote Reagan. "We wish you
and the American people and the free world that your
renewed mandate of leadership will carry with it the
promise of freedom everywhere."
The Israeli leader also added that his recent meeting
with the President in Washington reinforced his ap-
preciation of Reagan's friendship and desire for close
cooperation between the two coutries.

the truck was part of an IDF
convoy which included a jeep. It
was described as a "safari"
vehicle, with a roof and open
sides. Soldiers sit back-to-back
on two parallel benches on the
truck and face outwards from
either side.
The truck was passing through
"Sand Square" in central Sidon,
a junction where the main north-
south and east-west highways
meet. It is heavily travelled by
IDF units and has frequently
been the scene of attacks.
As the vehicle passed a parked
car in the square, three terrorists
emerged, opened fire on the
convoy at close range and tried to
escape in their car, military
sources said.

Envoys Differ
Rosenne, Ghorbal in Alternate Views
(JTA) The ambassadors
of Israel and Egypt agreed
here that there is an oppor-
tunity for peace in the Mid-
dle East, but differed over
the role the United States
should play in achieving it.
Israeli Ambassador Meir

U.S. has and will continue to play
an important role in the Mideast
peace process, said that any at-
tempt to impose a settlement

"Any attempt to impose a set-
tlement from the outside encour-

solutions but a partner to nego-
tiations," the Israeli envoy
declared, stressing that negotia-
tions must be without precondi-
tion. "If there is any Arab state
ready to negotiate with Israel,
Israel will be at the negotiating
table in 24 hours or less. Unfor-
tunately, we see no such partner
for the time being."
GHORBAL, who retires this
month after 10 years as the
Egyptian envoy here, urged the
newly-elected Reagan Admin-
istration to seize what he called a
window of opportunity" in the
Mideast. He said the Admin-
istration had about a year to act
jn which to achieve progress in
Lebanon, the Golan Heights and
the West Bank and Gaza.
There is "movement of moder-
ates on both sides of the fence

Ghorbal said. "It's high time to

Palestinians living under Israeli

want to destroy Israel as is called
for by the PLO charter.
Rosenne said that the Palesti-
nians in Judaea, Samaria and
Gaza can elect their own repres-
entatives as is called for in the
autonomy plan proposed by the
Camp David accords. In addi-
tion, he noted that the Pales-

GHORBAL SAID that Israeli
moderation was demonstrated by
an implied freeze on Jewish
settlements in the West Bank
and Gaza by the Peres govern-
ment. Rosenne said that the issue
of settlements has been "exag-
gerated" since he does not believe
it has prevented peace. He noted
that during the 19 years when
Jordan ruled the West Bank
there were no Jewish settlements
and there was no peace.
"If the whole idea of the
Middle East is to see Jews and
Arabs living together, in the
same way as you have in Israel

Arabs, we don't see why Jews
and Arabs couldn't live together

Gazit Quits Ben-Gurion U.
TEL AVIV (JTA) Shlomo Gazit, president of
Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Beersheba, has
resigned from his post. He said he has tendered his
resignation because of the "complete lack of un-
derstanding of the needs for higher education in Israel in
general, and of the Ben Gurion University in particular."
All universities in Israel, apart from the Technion in
Haifa, delayed the opening of their academic year because
of budgetary problems. But the others opened after a
week's delay, leaving only the Beersheba institute still
closed because of lack of funds.
Gazit said he did not mean that he thought the Ben
Gurion University was discriminated against. But he
added that the government should appreciate the special
needs of the university in Beersheba and the national role
it played in the development of the Negev and serving the
Negev and Beersheba areas.

On This and That
Executive Director
Sooth County
Jewish Federation
The burden of saving fellow
Jews never ceases. How many
times more must I walk a picket
line on behalf of Soviet Jewry?
How many more letters of protest
must I write? How many Jews
ask these questions out of a sense
of fatigue that has built up over
10 years of agitation over this
issue? I share their fatigue, yet I
know there is still a small Jewish
voice within me that tells me that
I cannot succumb to inaction.
Every so often I am reminded
of this by a piece that comes
across my desk that jolts my
sensitivities. I recently received
one such report from one Chana
Nepomnyashchy, who is a
Russian refusenik. Her report
actually a letter of appeal was
translated from the Russian and
distributed by The National Jew-
ish Community Relations
Advisory Council.
No one can read the following
letter without knowing that we,
as Jews, will continue to keep the
Soviet Jewry issue alive.
After reading her report I urge
you to write to our president and
to thank him for the work that he
has done on behalf of Soviet
Jewry in the past, and to urge
him to continue pressuring the
Soviets. I also ask you to partici-
pate in your own synagogues on
Shabbat either Friday evening
Dec. 21, or Saturday morning
Dec. 22, when the rescue of
Soviet Jewry will be highlighted.
(Translated from Russian)
My name is Chana Nepom-
nyashchy, I live in Odessa. I
would like to tell the story of my
family, a story which started the
moment we decided to repatriate
to Israel. This took place in
October 1979. We submitted our
documents to go to Israel and
since then we have met
with .(illegible). My daughter
Eda was forced out of the
Komsomol. This lasted about two
months and this period became a
toughening experience for all of
us. She had to visit the district
Komsomol office a number of
times and there she was told that
it is not her homeland waiting for
her, but Arabs with
machineguns, and that she
should not keep dreaming about
jeans and other rags, since harsh
reality awaits her there.
My husband and I found
ourselves out of work, and if I
managed somehow to find work
after being unemployed for five
months, my husband was
unemployed for a whole year and
only then, after great difficulties,
did he find a job somewhere.
We decided to learn our native
language, to become familiar
with our cultural heritage and
only then did we realize that we
had been robbed all of our lives as
grown-ups and had been deprived
of what was most important. We
fell upon the small quantity of
material which was at our
disposal as if we were hungry
people given some food. Our
daughter quickly mastered the
language and soon started
teaching Hebrew herself. A small
and then a larger ulpan was
established in Odessa and it
Rabbi Bruce S. Warshal
became known as the "singing
ulpan" because the young men
who came to study also sang our
Jewish songs, songs in Hebrew,
the songs of our country.
We became acquainted with a
man named Maks Zherebchevsky
(?). He has been living in Israel
during the last few years. He was
the first man who helped us to
become familiar with the
traditions of our people and we
are very thankful to him for this.
Later on there were many other
people who helped us and who are
still helping us.
Our activities did not, of
course, fail to attract the at-
tention of the appropriate
authorities. The first search was
conducted in our apartment in
June 1980. They took away Eda's
diary. This was the "outrageous"
material which was pressented to
my husband at a meeting (with
officials) and attempts were made
then to extract from him an
explanation in regards to this
diary. My husband refused to
give any explanation and then
Eda was summoned. She was not
yet even 18 at that time. The
meeting with her lasted several
hours, they threatened her and
tried to intimidate her. They even
showed her a gun which someone
could use to shoot her if she
refused to give testimony against
someone. This was a good lesson.
Since then we have all visited
that office where they threatened
us and tried to intimidate us. One
could also say that many of these
threats were later realized.
In July 1981 our apartment
was searched for the second time
and in May 1983 for the third
time. Absolutely everything that
had to do with Jewishness was
taken away. It is funny to recall,
but they even took away recipes
of Jewish dishes in Russian.
Later, when the Head of the Jew-
ish Section of the KGB spoke to
me he classified ail the material
taken away from us into two
categories: one anti-Soviet,
and another one nationalist
material. I do not remember
exactly which of the two
categories the recipes belonged
to. All our correspondence with
our numerous relatives and
friends in Israel, family
photographs (including even the
photo of our dog) and my pen-
dant in the form of a Magen-
Dayid. The latter was, I think,
defined as nationalist material. A
Passover Haggada, on the other
hand, was relegated to the
Jewish Floridian

category of anti-Soviet material.
And although my husband said
that it was written long before
the establishment of the Soviet
state and could never be defined
as this kind of document, he was
told that it was published in Je-
rusalem and this alone was
enough for it to be anti-Soviet.
During these years our
telephone was disconnected, as
they told us, forever. My
husband was dismissed from his
job, which he found with such
difficulty, because of "reduction
of staff." The "reduction of staff"
in the large organization where he
vorked consisted of his dismissal
and the dismissal of a young girl,
a secretary, who was later, it
seems, reinstated in her position.
In June 1983 an article entitled
"Where Footsteps From Jeru-
salem Are Leading To'' appeared
in the local press. The article
defamed our family and branded
our daughter as a "young
preacher." From that article we
found out that she was accepted
as a student to the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem in order,
allegedly, to add more weight to
her "preachings."
During all these years we were
constantly cut off from the
outside world, i.e., from the world
outside our apartment. All this
because all the correspondence,
even coming from within the
Soviet Union and even registered
items did not reach us. It is hard
for me to remember all the
harassments to which we were
subjected during all these years.
We were constantly visited by
the police and our local policeman
often came to our apartment
accompanied by members of the
People's Guards. Once he came
when he was drunk and then I
really got scared: the policeman
kept pulling at our door, and I
was alone at home at the time.
The police always wanted
something from us. They wanted
to arrest Eda when she started
teaching Hebrew and they did
arrest her in the end. After the
second search they took her away
after taking her passport from
her, and without giving any
explanation kept her behind bars
for three-and-a-half hours. Then
they brought her to a People's
Court and informed her that
because of her improper behavior
during the search she would be
fined the sum of 20 rubles.
However, during these three-and-
a-half hours she spent under
arrest all sorts of thoughts went
through our minds and we did
not know how all this would end.
We prepared for the worst.
There was a period when Eda
was without a passport for six
months because it had been taken
away from her at one of the
"conversations" she had with
Odessa KGB officials. No ex-
planation was given for this
either. Despite all our complaints
to various Soviet organizations
Eda was still living without a
passport. She could not even
make an appointment with a
dentist, since the existing
regulations demanded she
produce one. But nobody was
bothered by this. Then she was
called to the KGB and given back
her passport without much ado.
In addition, this was done by a
new official whom she had never
met before and who expressed his
surprise at the fact that they had
taken away her passport. He
could not even understand why
this was done.
In May 1980 we received our
first refusal. It was based on the
so-called "lack of proof of
(family) kinship" and when my
husband asked to whom he had
to prove that he had a brother
whose surname was Nepom-
nyashchy, like his own, he was
told that he was an educated man
and should know what to do.
We consider this refusal to be
totally groundless. We do have
relatives in Israel, but this is not
even the point, because we
declared a number of times and
wrote to various Soviet organ-
ziations that we were Jews and
that we wanted to live in our
land, to become reunited with our
own people, our family, our
relatives and friends.
I would like to say that all the
members of our family my
husband, myself and my
daughter we all studied in
Soviet schools and were all
brought up in a spirit of atheism,
but during the last few years,
after having become familiar with
our traditions, we reviewed many
things and realized that our way
in this world, the way of the
Jews, is completely different, and
we now consider ours to be the
way of serving the Almighty.
And now I, a religious person,
recite Brachot every morning.
They include the following
phrase: "Baruch Ata Hashem
Elokeinu Melech Haolam ..."
This is a prayer thanking the
Almighty for not having created
me as a slave. I am not a slave
and therefore cannot remain
I want all mothers in Israel to
hear me, all those mothers whose
daughters are now planning to
get married, and this because my
story has not ended yet. My
daughter Eda (who will be 22 in
November) decided to get
married. She met a young fellow
named Yakov Levin. Like her, he
also wants to go to Israel. We
have known him for three years.
All these years he tried to obtain
permission to apply for
repatriation, but now this has
become very complicated. Yasha
is now in prison. This happened a
week before he and Eda were
supposed to register their
marriage in the Soviet registrar's
office (ZAGS). The huppa was
supposed to take place later, on
September 2. A few days before
that he was charged with
"spreading deliberately false
information defaming the Soviet
state and social system" in
accordance with Art. 187.1 of the
Criminal Code of the Ukr.SSR.
I hereby declare that I consider
this charge to be a mistake. It is
not possible and it could never
have been possible because
Yasha is a religious person. While
in prison he asked permission to
be allowed to use religious ac-
cessories, but so far his requests
have been rejected. As a religious
person he could not have engaged
in the activities he is being
charged with: firstly, because
Judaism prescribes respect for
the laws of the country of one's
residence, and secondly, because
this would constitute a violation
of one of the main com-
I must say that during these
three years that we have known
Yasha (we first met in the syn-
agogue on Rosh Hashana) he was
also constantly invited to the
KGB where they kept talking to
him about purely Jewish sub
jects, told him to stop studying
Hebrew, to stop trying to apph
for emigration and to stop tryinp
to study the Torah. And now
they have sent him to prison and
accused him of fabricatine
slanderous information about the
Soviet regime. All the items
confiscated from him during the
searches (many searches were
conducted in his apartment too;
also, he came to our apartment
during the second search and
therefore he was searched then
too; then two searches were
conducted in March 1984: at his
workplace and in his apartment
right before they sent him away
to prison) showed that he did not
engage in anything except
studying the language and
religious questions. Therefore, I
consider the charge of spreading
fabrications against the Soviet
regime as a charge against
Judaism and the Hebrew
Yasha applied for a permit to
go to Israel. At the moment of his
arrest he had in his possession an
invitation (vyzov) bearing in-
structions of the Head of the
District OVIR office to type the
necessary forms to be filled in,
while all his documents had been
sent to the Odessa OVIR in
March 1984. Yasha sent them
there through the office of the
Presidium of the Supreme Soviet.
Yasha signed the Statement on
Repatriation and thus all his
activities were directed to
repatrating, to studying his
language and traditions and not
to what he is now being accused
And now I want all the large
Nepomnyashchy family in Israel
and I want all the people of Israel
to hear me. I appeal to the
Knesset of the State of Israel and
to the governments of all civilized
countries. I ask and I plead: hear
our voice! Help us to stop these
repressions because no one knows
what tomorrow will bring. Help
my daughter! Help her fiance!
They have been separated and we
do not know what the future will
bring them.

repatriate, to leave for their

Lions of Judah Grow
From Strength to Strength
This year"s Lion of Judah high
tea was held last week at the
home of Bea and Richard Levy in
Boca Raton.
The tea is a Women's Division
annual event held for recipients
and prospective recipients of the
Lion of Judah Award, as a fore-
runner to the Lion of Judah
luncheon which is held for women
who have pledged a minimum of
$5,000 to the Federation-UJA
During this year's tea, three
new women were added to the
group, bringing the number of
those proudly bearing the gold
lion-and-menorah pin to more
than 70. The group was launched
three years ago with an initial
membership of eight.
The highlight of the tea this
year was the viewing of Richard
Levy's extensive and admirable
Judaica collection to which the
guests were treated.

Young Leaders Mission
Slated for Spring
The South County Jewish Fed-
eration this year will take part in
a special Young Leadership UJA
Mission to Israel. Unlike other
missions, this one is specifically
geared to young professional men
and women (ages 25-45), who are
interested in becoming leaders in
the Jewish community. Partic-
ipation in such a mission is an
excellent first step toward
assuming such leadership roles.
A mission is quite different
from an ordinary tour of Israel,
giving its participants an oppor-
tunity to experience the country
as "an insider." Mission
members often have access to
places which the ordinary tourist
cannot see, and are given
briefings by top Israeli officials.
Even visiting places like the
Western Wall or a kibbutz has a
different perspective on a mission
The Young Leadership Mission
is planned for March 10-19. The
time to plan for it is now call

Press Digest
ISRAEL TODAY last week
kept the Sharon $50 million libel
suit against TIME magazine on a
hot burner, continuing to give it
front page play even though the
actual court hearings had not yet
begun Also, in its eagerness
to report on the talks between
Israel and Lebanon on troop
withdrawal, it reported that talks
had started on Monday, though
in fact the talks were postponed
by a couple of days.
Two interesting regular fea-
tures in ISRAEL TODAY: a
translation of items appearing in
the Soviet Press, as "the best
way to look behind the Iron
Curtain," and a report on items
audited from Arab radio stations
in countries surrounding Israel.
Last week an article from IZ-
VESTIA was translated, report-
ing that the Zionist fiends in
Israel were poisoning the drink-
ing water wells of Arab popula-
tion centers and educational
institutions .
The National Jewish POST
AND OPINION reported from
Baltimore that Jewish riders on
Trailways buses were shocked to
find that their tickets carried a
religious message saying:
"Praise the Lord Jesus Christ."
It seems that it was put on the
tickets by an overzealous born-
again Christian who did the com-
puter program for the outfit
which prints the tickets for Trail-
In an editorial, the Post and
Opinion accuses the leadership of
organized American Jewry of
attempting to ignore the plight of
thousands of Falashas
Ethiopian Jews and worse, of
employing an official emissary of
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions to local communities to
"still the voices being raised by
shocked Jews over the dilatory
tactics of Israel and the Amer-
ican Jewish Community."
The Post and Opinion
predicted an "explosion" would
occur at the CJF General As-
sembly, taking place in Toronto,
Canada, Nov. 14-18. Such an
explosion, it said, would be a
"healthy demonstration" and "a
landmark occasion ... In one fell
swoop more democracy would be
infused into the American Jewish
Community than by years of
private negotiations ..."
published in New York, reports
that a dissident group of leaders
in the Jewish Defense League in
the U.S. is opposed to Rabbi Meir
Kahane, and has taken action to
dissociate the JDL in the U.S.
from its founder who now serves
as a Knesset member in Israel
and has gained notoriety with his
approach to Israel's Arab
population and that of the ad-
ministered territories.
Yediot Aharonot, Israel's most
widely read daily, devotes most
of its news pages to the country's
economic crisis and the events
surrounding the Jewxsh anti-

on widespread raids by the police
on suspected dealers in illegal
foreign currency in the major
cities: until recently, such dealers
openly waved their dollars on the

Neo-Nazis End Convention;
Vow Seats in '87 Bundestag
neo-Nazi National Demo-
cratic Party (NPD) ended
its two-day convention in
Munich over the weekend
with a vow to win repre-
sentation in the Bundestag
in the next national elec-
tions scheduled for 1987.
"What happened in France is
also possible in Germany," NPD
leader Martin Mussgnub
declared in a refence to the elec-
toral success of Jean-Marie Le
Pen's ultra rightwing National
Front. Le Pen's party garnered
11 percent of the popular vote in
last summer's national election
for the Parliament of Europe,
winning 10 seats in that multi-
national body.
According to Mussgnub,
"There is a European-wide wave
of renewed contemplation of the
values of the nation" on which
the NPD could ride into the Bun-
destag. The party, which is the
largest single neo-Nazi organiza-
tion in West Germany, increased
its membership from 90,000 to
1983, when the
elections were
198,000 between
last Bundestag
held, and 1984.
Mussgnub said the party aims
to unite 900,000 voters and
qualify for State financial
support so it can enter the next
campaign free of debt.
The NPD convention drew
several thousand protestors who
rallied outside the meeting hall
shouting, "Nazis out." Hundreds
of police maintained security.
The mayor of Munich, a Social
Democrat, told the local Jewish
community and other organiza-
tions that he had no authority to
ban the convention, but he con-
demned the neo-Nazi movement
and declared that the NPD and
its supporters are not wanted in
The NPD and other neo-Nazi
groups are banned from West
Berlin by order of the Allied mili-
tary command. But neo-Nazi
organizations may operate in the
Federal Republic as long as they
observe the law. Unlike smaller
neo-Nazi groups, the NPD as
such has not resorted to violent
methods, according to police.

stockholder is Saul Eisenberg,
who is described by Yediot as
being a Howard Hughes type.
Eisenberg owns indusries and
enterprises all over the world,
including South Korea and
Japan, and is said to do more
than two billion dollars of busi-
ness annually.
Israel's entire security force is
making intensive efforts to locate
and expose the Jewish terror
group known as "Underground
II," which, says Yediot, was
responsible for the anti-tank
missile attack on an Arab bus in
which one man was killed and
several persons wounded. Based
on a letter left by the missile
users, and other incidents of acts
against Arabs in Israel and in the
administered territories, Yediot
concludes the act was
petrated by this secret
ing" organization.
The Jerusalem Post, on the
other hand, reports that a soldier
who was linked to the theft of a
LAW (Light Anti-tank Weapon)
missile was arrested as the main
suspect in the attack, and that
police believed he was not part of
any organized group. He is also
the one alleged to have thrown a
grenade at a cafe in the Old City
in September an incident
which was linked by Yediot to the
same "secret" terror group.
According to the police, says The
Jerusalem Post, the suspect, who
lost a girl friend in an Arab
terrorist attack last year, has
confessed to both terror acts.

Jewish Community Urged to
Acknowledge Wife Abuse
well-known rabbi re-
entry announced from the
(ulpit that all were wel-
nme in his congregation
[except wife-beaters." A
/ey among New York
abbis found that while
arly all denied first-hand
oowledge of Jewish dom-
Ltic violence, and some
len claimed it never hap-
kns, many agreed that
[elters for its victims
lould be established,
kg such shelter has already

bnt studies in Los Angeles
ptified several cases of spousal
among Jews, and two
lor conferences on the subject
fe been held in as many years
he New York area alone.
fHE LATEST of the two con- .
(nces was last week. It was co-
nsored by the American
Irish Committee's New York
pter, the National Federation
femple .Sisterhoods District 3,
Women's League for Con-
dative Judaism, and the
lien's branch of the Orthodox

ood leaders from the three
Itches of Judaism, according
Betty Reiser, conference
rdinator and assistant
ptor of the AJCommittee's
I York chapter.
he objectives of the confer-
i were to determine the sever-
of the problem among Am-
^n Jews and to form a "na-
I network for change."
I the indications at the con-
gee were that one of the most
tent myths that Jewish
I don't beat their wives is
exploded. Reliable stat-
are hard to come by, but
1 service agencies under both
|sh and nonsectarian auspices
[increasingly reporting that
^ are following the lead of the
ral society.
LEAD is clear; approx-
imately 10 million to 15 million
cases of wife abuse are recorded
annually in the United States.
Many more cases go unreported.
Domestic violence figures as a
cause in about 60 percent of
divorce cases, and the Victim
Services Agency in New York
City estimates that almost half of
all women will experience viol-
ence from a spouse or partner at
some point in their lives.
All the speakers at last week's
conference agreed that wife abuse
has always existed among
Jews as well as non-Jews. It is
not the problem but the recogni-
tion that is growing. Jewish
battering may be more "insi-
dious" than other pathologic
behaviors among Jews, "because
it has been so well-hidden,"
stated keynote speaker Barbara
Harris, director of Transition
Sponsored by the Associated
YM-YWHAs of Greater New
York, Transition is the only city-
funded shelter in New York City
for abused women and their
children offering kosher facilities.
MOREOVER, Harris said,
there are reasons that abused
Jewish women may be at a
greater disadvantage than their
non-Jewish counterparts. One is
the historic reluctance of Jews to
turn to police or civil courts to
adjudicate their disputes. When
Jewish women do file suits, they
are often met with such com-
ments as: "What's a nice Jewish
woman like you doing in court?"
Because of the sacrosanct posi-
tion of the family within Juda-
ism, Jewish women have been
inculcated with the belief that
they should sacrifice everything
for their families.
"Battered women may go
home to their mothers and be told
that they were beaten by the
fathers and 'survived,' said
Harris. "Or they may be told that
they made their bed and must lie
in it that the family must be
preserved at all costs. An offer of
help is the least likely response."
The myth that Jews don't beat
their wives has led to widespread
denial even when the facts are
glaringly different. All battered
women suffer from society's ten-
dency to blame the victim, either
for allegedly provoking the at-
tack or for not walking away
from it.
BUT JEWISH women may
experience this to an even greater
degree. Since it is assumed that
wife abuse is rare or even non-
existent among Jews, any woman
who gets beaten is seen as
deserving it, speakers at the Con-
ference pointed out.
The centrality of the family
and the denial syndrome also
play a crucial role in what
speakers considered the inad-
equate response of most rabbis.
Previous reports had indicated
that it is rare for a rabbi to have
the opportunity to intervene be-
cause the battered woman is too
ashamed to turn to him or her.
But according to Rachel Klein,
caseworker at Transition Center,
many of the women at the shelter
had approached their rabbis for
help and been rebuffed. "They
were told, 'it's not so bad,' and
advised to go home and preserve
shalom bayit (domestic peace),"
she said.
"Since the batterer commonly
isolates his wife, but he himself
remains visible and even active in
the community, the rabbi will
tend to believe his story, and see
the woman as either hysterical or
as a nebichel the husband has to
put up with."
RABBI Gerald Skolnick,
spiritual leader of the Forest
Hills Jewish Center in New York
City, explained that rabbis are
particularly prone to the interna-
lization of- Jewish "self-serving
myths" and to subsequent
denial. "After all," he said "the
job of the rabbi is to perpetuate
myths, to teach Jewish special-
Though effective intervention
may mean nothing more than
referral of the woman to an ap-
propriate social service gency,
the insufficient training most
rabbis receive in counselling and
the resulting ignorance about
support systems in their com-
munities further hampers their
ability to help even in this limited
way, it was observed.
Another myth that needs
exploding, commented Harris, is
that wife abuse occurs only

Technion Scientists Develop More Effective Resuscitation Method
HAIFA A more effective
method for the resuscitation of
heart attack victims has been
developed by Professor U.
Dinnar. Dr. R. Beyar. Professor
S. Sideman and Dr. E. Kimmel of
the Technion's Julius Silver
Institute of Biomedical
Engineering. Israel's leading
institution of higher education,
the Technion, has attracted
international attention for the
pioneering work carried out at its
various departments.
Not so very long ago physi-
cians had to resort to a very
dramatic method in their at-
tempts to save victims of cardiac

Temple Emeth Holds
'Federation Sabbath'
Temple Emeth of Delray, as
part of its 10th Anniversary
celebrations, held a "Federation
Sabbath" service on Friday
night, Nov. 9. Rabbi Elliot
Winograd gave over his pulpit,
instead of his customary sermon,
to Marianne Bobick, president of
South County Jewish Federation.
Mrs. Bobick told the congreg-
ants, "Our Federation is the envy
of many. We are young, vibrant
and successful. There are many
reasons for our reputation one
being the committed support of
each of the synagogues in our
area. Seldom, if ever, is the rel-
ationship between the religious
institutions and the Federation
as open and cooperative as in this
community Our Jewish com-
munity is truly one, and I thank
each and every one here for
fostering this feeling."
She proceeded to give the con-
gregation a current report on the
situation in Israel and the state
of relations between the Jewish
State and the Jewish community
in the U.S.
Mrs. Bobick then
congratulated the Temple on its
anniversary, and presented a
plaque on behalf of the Federa-
tion in recognition and apprecia-
tion of the support exhibited by
the temple and its members.

Attorney General John

Israelis Willing To
Tighten Belts
sizeable majority of Israelis are
prepared to make financial sacri-
fices in the effort to hold down
inflation, according to a poll pub-
lished in Maariv.
The poll, conducted by the
Modi' in Ezrachi organization,
reported that 73.1 percent of the
respondents are willing to forego
part of their monthly cost-of-
living increments whereas only
17.9 percent are not. This
translates into three of every four
Israelis in support of the wage-
price freeze package approved by
the Cabinet.
The package requires wage-
earners to give up about one-
third of their COL allowances
during the three months the
freeze is in effect.
A substantial majority. 51.7
percent, believe the economic
package deal will succeed in
keeping prices stable over the
three month period. But 37.8
percent were skeptical, the poll
reported, and 10.6 percent had no

Rachel Queroz, the Academy
member who had sponsored
Niskier's membership, described
him in her address of welcome as
"the Carioca (resident of Rio), the

There is an old Jewish saying: "Meshaneh makom meshan

Mazal, the Hebrew word for luck, can be understood as
acronym for three other Hebrew words: Makom (place), Zman
and Limud (know-how). This teaches us what luck is all about.
Makom means learning to find the right place for help, for a&l
swers and for caring friends. Zman means using time wisely by bl
mediately getting involved and becoming part of the community.!
Limud is the ability to cull all of one's resources and experiences and!
to put them to work. We must use our mazal to make relocation!
Moving also brings dangers. There are many who pack th_
belongings only to leave their most precious treasure behind. Whiki.
north they were involved in synagogues, federations or community!
activities, in Florida they participate in nothing at all. There are thonl
who had separate dishes for dairy and meat, who ate only food that!
was kosher, but moved with only one set of dishes. Those wiuJ
children are setting a dangerous example, teaching them to rejectl
Jewish values and commitment. Those whose children are grown seeul
to be going through an adolescent rebellion very inappropriate

By emphasizing Jewish values we have the ability to reestablish I

Bar/Bat Mitzvah
On Saturday, Nov. 17, Craig
Allen, son of Dr. Myles and
Arlene Spodak, took part in
leading the Shabbat morning
service and study of the weekly
Torah portion, Hayei Sarah, in
addition to being called to the
Bimah as a Bar Mitzvah at
Congregation B'nai Israel in
Boca Raton.
Craig had chosen to share the
occasion with Eliahu Dashevsky
of the Soviet Union, whose right
to practice his religion and cel-
ebrate his Bar Mitzvah has been
denied him by his government.
Craig has been trying to establish
contact with Eliahu by registered
mail since August. Eliahu is the
son of astrophysicist Vladimir
Dashevsky and biochemist
Yanna Dashevsky of Moscow.
The Dashevskys applied for an
emigration permit in 1977, and
subsequently lost their jobs
but were refused the permit as "it
was not in the State's interest."
Craig, his sister Sharon and his
parents prepared a letter of
appeal to the Soviet authorities
to let the Dashevskys go, and
asked the guests attending the
Bar Mitzvah to sign the letter.
Dr. and Mrs. Spodak and
family moved to Boca Raton
from New City, N.Y., four years
ago. Dr. Spodak has a dental
practice in Delray Beach.
