Yom Hasho'ahApril 18,
Marked At Jewish Campus
A rabbi, a black American, a
white U.S. soldier, an intelligence
agent for the Allies and a sur-
vivor of the concentration camps
and a forced death march all
will tell of what they saw during
and at the end of World War II,
during the Yom Hasho'ah
memorial program next Thur-
sday at 7:30 p.m.
Their stories will be told
through an award winning (Oscar
nominated) documentary film
called "You Are Free," which will
be shown as part of the program
in the auditorium of the Levis
JCC, at the Baer Jewish Campus.
Another highlight of the
program will be dramatic
readings of material from
manuscripts written by
Holocaust victims, in many cases
just before they were killed. The
dramatic presentation will be
done in an unusual form, ac-
companied by visual aids and
"Every one of our community
members who has said or felt
'never again!' should make
certain he or she attends this
memorial program," said Geri
Gellert, director of the CRC
which is co-sponsoring the event
with the JCC and the South
County Rabbinical Association.
"With every passing year the
danger of the Holocaust
memories fading grows, and both
the older generation who wit-
nessed it, and the younger people
who just heard about it, must
make greater efforts to per-
petuate the knowledge and
remembrance of this darkest

Other Cabinet sources in-

the three-stage pull-out would be

Secretary Yossi Beilin seemed to
confirm this when he told
reporters after the session that
the debate two weeks hence
would concern implementation of
the third stage and the related
issue of a security zone along the
international border after the
IDF departs Lebanon.
Rubinstein, who has been
urging that stages two and three
be combined to hasten the with-
drawal, was quoted by the media
as saying he was "partially
satisfied" with the outcome of
the discussion in the Cabinet.
Chief of Staff Gen. Moshe Levy
was present to report on the
situation in Lebanon and the
rogress of the withdrawal.
THE FUTURE situation in
northern Galilee was discussed
by the Mapam Party's Central
Committee, meeting in the border
town of Kiryat Shemona. The
party's Secretary General,
Eliazer Granot, said Mapam
would support any efforts made
by the IDF to ensure the safety
of Galilee after the IDF is out of
But he said expressions such
as "scorched earth" should be
avoided. He was referring to a
recent statement by Rabin that
the IDF would resort to a
"scorched earth" policy in
Lebanon if Israeli towns were
attacked from Lebanese soil after
the IDF pulls back across the
international border.
Representatives of "Parents
Against Silence," an
organization of the parents of
IDF soldiers serving in Lebanon,
met with Premier Peres Friday
morning. They appeal to him for
the speediest possible withdrawal
from Lebanon. Peres reiterated
his promise that all Israeli
soldiers would be out of Lebanon
in 8-10 weeks.
THE PARENTS told him that
almost every night they saw on
television the dismantling of
large concrete blocks and other
defenses in Lebanon which are
loaded on trucks for tran-
sporation back to Israel. "But
the bodies of our sons are also
being brought back," they said.
"We would rather the soldiers
were alive and the concrete
blocks left there."

"is particularly
serious" for the future of the
Jewish community because 60
percent of the Jewish partners in
mixed marriages are women.
The researchers noted that in
French society "it is the father
who is the dominant note in the
family's religious practices and
cultural options." They predicted
that there will be fewer Jewish
males available for marriage in
the years ahead, according to
demographic trends in France,
and that consequently, an ever
larger proportion of Jewish
women will marry non-Jews.
On the basis of current
demographic trends in Western
Europe as a whole, and especially
in the European Jewish com-
munity, the study predicts "at
the best" a stabilization of the
French Jewish community and
probably a drop in its numbers
by the end of the century. The
French Jewish community is the
largest in Western Europe.

the United States, D'Amato said,
"There are literally millions of
people who are being brutalized

He told the representatives of
the organizations that his agenda
as chairman included seeking to
increase the level of Jewish
emigration from the USSR. He
noted that the problem of the
refuseniks is a critical one, since
in the past five years the level of
Jewish emigration has fallen
from 51,000 to 896. In addition,
D'Amato noted, the Soviets are
engaged in a deliberate revival of
anti-Semitism aimed at snuffing

Senate Committee Approves Move
Requiring AWACS' Certification
WASHINGTON (JTA) The Senate Foreign
Relations Committee has unanimously approved a
requirement that before any AWACS are delivered to
Saudi Arabia, President Reagan certifies to Congress that
the Saudis have contributed to the peace process in the
Middle East.
THE REQUIREMENT was proposed by Sen. Alan
Cranston (D., Calif.) as an amendment to the Foreign Aid
Bill which was adopted by the committee. When the
Senate approved the sale of the AWACS in 1981, Reagan
sent a letter to Majority Leader Howard Baker (R., Tenn.)
saying that before delivery he would certify that the
Saudis had been helpful in the peace process as well as
several technical requirements to protect the security of
the technology in the AWACS.
The first five AWACS are scheduled to be delivered
in January. The Cranston amendment would now make
Reagan's promise a requirement under law if adopted by
the full Senate and the house. Rep. Michael Barnes (D.,
Md .) is introducing a similar amendment in the House.
Wee Praise for Secret Airlift
Two leading American
Jewish organizations have
praised the United States
for its role in the secret
airlift of hundreds of
Ethiopian Jews from the
Sudan to Israel.
But at the same time they
sought to keep a tight lid on any
further public disclosure of
details of the operation beyond
what has already appeared in the
American news media.
Israel continued its silence on
the rescue of Ethiopian Jews, as
it has since Operation Moses was
halted Jan. 6 due to premature
disclosure of its details. The
White House and the State
Department had no official
comment on the latest airlift or
the role played by the U.S.
told reporters at the White House
that he had "no comment" on the
operation. A State Department
spokesman, Brian Carlson, was
quoted as saying, "We have no
comment, and we don't plan to
have anything."
In keeping with the
Administration's policy of
remaining quiet on details of the
mission, White House Chief of
Staff Donald Regan said, "I'm
not going to comment on that
case," when asked about reports
of the airlift during an ap-
pearance Sunday on NBC-TV's

Press, by MARTY ERANN,

President Reagan's policies are
a stumbling block to peace in the
Middle East, says former
president Jimmy Carter in a new
book just published, "Blood of
Abraham," according to Israel
Reagan has made em-
barrassing mistakes in the
Mideast, and his policies have
served to enhance the Soviet
influence in the region to its
greatest level since they were
ousted from Egypt by Sadat. His
confrontation policies sending
in Marines instead of negotiating
are to blame for repeated
crises, Carter says in his book.
Carter is said to tell, in his
book, that he learned shortly
after Israel went into Lebanon in
1982 that she planned to move
deep into Lebanese territory. He
tried to warn the Reagan ad-
ministration, but they would not
listen. When he expressed his
concern "to Israeli leaders who
participated in the Camp David
negotiations," back came "a
disturbing reply from Jerusalem:
We have a green light from
Citing a newspaper from
Kuwait, Israel Today reports
that several American banks,
including Bank of America, First
Chicago Bank and Citibank, have
suspended credit to several
Kuwaiti companies pending the
improvement of their financial
standing. The Kuwait Central
Bank, reportedly, reacted by
taking "urgent measures" to help
the companies, as well as
"retaliatory measures" against
the U.S. banks. A veiled warning
apparently was issued by the
Central Bank which asked
companies to keep it informed of
any action by foreign banks who
suspend their credit, so they can
prepare to withdraw any deposits
they have with that bank and
suspend dealings with it.
Remember Farrakhan?
Perhaps he won more out of the
presidential election campaign
last year than did Jesse
Jackson There have been
various items in the Jewish press,
of late (usually small, obscure
ones), reporting on his comings
and goings, especially on
university campuses. One of the
more recent instances is reported
by the National Jewish Post and
Opinion: the city of Houston,
Texas, under the signature of its
mayor and city council members,
welcomed Louis Farrakhan and
presented him with a medallion of
the city. Farrakhan, in spite of
little advance publicity, drew a
crowd of 5,000 blacks who came
to hear him speak The only
city councillor who objected was
Frank Mancuso, who asked that
his name not be included.
Houston's Jewish Herald-
Voice pointed out that the Jewish
community there would not ask
the city to accord a similar
welcome to Rabbi Meir Kahane of
the Jewish Defense League, and
asked why Farrakhan should be
given such honor.
Farrakhan was expected to get
a similar welcome at the
University of Kansas, where the
student senate allocated $3,600,
plus an additional $600 for "extra
security" for the Farrakhan visit,
over objections by the Jewish
students .
Picking up on a report from
The Jewish World of Palm Beach
(by Martin Pomerance, who can
almost be categorized as a
"single-interest lobbyist"), the P.
and O. ran an article quoting
Stuart Eisenstat saying that too
much money is raised by
federations for Israel, and not
enough for local needs. Then, in
the following week, editor Gabriel
Cohen opines that Eisenstat fails
to comprehend that the
federations, once relatively
inefficient and unstable, are
today well-organized and ef-
fective, and by their very nature
will not be able to ignore, for
long, the local needs. Eisenstat
should continue pushing, and the
federations and UJA should
continue pulling, and the tension
will be healthy, says the P. and
Israel has promised the U.S.
that it will not settle Ethiopian
Jews in Judea and Samaria,
reports The Jerusalem Post. The
U.S. gives Israel $15 million
annually through its AID
program, and does not wish this
money, used for refugee reset-
tlement, to be used in the "ad-
ministered territories." The U.S.
request apparently came after
Haim Aron, head of the Jewish
Agency Aliyah Department,
declared that Israel would settle
the Ethiopian Jews where it saw
Meanwhile, there are storms
brewing concerning the
recognition of the Beta Israel
Jewish authenticity by rabbinic
authorities storms which have
thus far been kept under the lid
for obvious reasons. On the one
hand, several authorities have
declared there is no doubt of their
being properly Jewish. On the
other hand, the chief rabbis have
demanded that the Ethiopian
Jews undergo a "token con-
version" just to remove any
doubts. And some, like the
spiritual leader of the Agudah
Israel, reportedly has said an
actual conversion is necessary.
The Ethiopian Jews, by and
large, are upset with these
declarations and refuse to go
through any procedure, insisting
their Judaism must not come into
question at all. One rabbinic
institution, Machon Mair, headed
by Rabbi Dov Begun, has
launched a program of in-
struction for the Kessim, the
Ethiopian religious elders, to
certify them as rabbis, reports
The Jerusalem Post.
The paper's correspondent
from Bonn, Germany, adds that
the Jews still in Ethiopia are
faced with a new danger: under
the Ethiopian government's
program for resettling some one
million of its citizens, the
authorities are likely to disperse
the remaining Jews throughout
the country, ending their com-
munal life and thereby forcing
them to assimilate.
Haaretz reports that the chief
rabbinate and the Jewish Agency
are quietly putting many of the
Ethiopian Jews through the
symbolic conversion process; so
far some 100 such immigrants at
a Beersheba absorption center
have gone through it. They are
doing it clandestinely, so as not
to upset their compatriots who
object to the requirement of
symbolic conversion as insulting.
Production of the Lavi, Israel's
new fighter jet designed for the
90's, is in growing jeopardy as
more and more senior officers,
economic experts and politicians
are raising objections to its
production by Israel itself,
because of too high a cost which
is calculated as part of the
Defense budget, reports
Ha'aretz. The entire project,
which has already cost Israel
$800 million and more for
research and development, is
being studied by the Defense
Ministry with both proponents
and opponents coming out with
strong arguments.
As it is, the production of
wings and tail assemblies has
already been "farmed out," with
the Grumman Co. having the
contract for them. Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin recently
made an offer to the Northrop Co.
to join Israel in production of the
Lavi, which is believed a superior
design to the F-20 jets Northrop
will be building.
A 9,000-year-old "smile"
was the way Yediot
Aharonot described an
archeological find in the
Judean desert, which is
likely to revolutionize
existing theories on the
prehistoric age.
The find was made two
years ago, but was kept
under wraps until now,
while the Weizmann
Institute, the British
Museum laboratories and
the University of Pretoria
worked independently of
each other to determine the
artifacts' age which all
three agreed was about
9,000 years.
The find includes a skull
covered with asphalt
sculpted like a net, a stone
mask decorated with
paints, fine fabric pieces
made of dyed cotton,
wooden beads painted red
and green, finely carved
granite tools, four
statuettes made of bone
and painted, and more.
The artifacts went on
display at the Israel
Museum in Jerusalem last
week, with the skull placed
in a sealed glass case, and
the painted items kept in
the dark (a light comes on
for 90 seconds, for viewing
them), so the colors will not
People in Saudi Arabia will

Zoglobek-Nahariya plant, if a
deal being negotiated with the
Israeli company via a European
intermediary goes through, says
Ma'ariv. The Arabs insist, of
course, that the meat products
which are certified as kosher not
bear identification as being made
in Israel
The Saudis are interested in
the Zoglobek products because,
being kosher, they are certain not
to contain pork or pork
derivatives. Still, they want to be
certain the Arab Kadi of Acco
(Acre) also approves the
products as being "kosher" in
accordance with the Moslem
A Technion professor, Dan
Schechtman, has discovered a
new structure of matter, which
has the scientific community
buzzing, reports Ma'ariv. Until
now matter was believed to take
one of two forms: crystalline,
which has a regular, repetitious
atomic structure, and is com-
monly found in base metals; and
amorphous, which is an irregular
atomic structure (atoms scat-
tered at random), as commonly
found in liquids.
The new matte: form, which
Prof. Schechtman discovered
doing research on rapid
solidification, exists in three
aluminum alloys with which he
worked, and has been given the
name "Schechtmanite." Most of
its properties, physical and
chemical, are still unknown and
being researched.
(The following is a direct
translation of exerpts from an
Israel Radio interview show,
broadcast on March 30, which
was also printed in Yediot
Aharonot. The interview with
young Israeli soldiers was done
by Edna Pe'er.-M.E.)
In one of the entrenchments in

tension which adds up in you day

are lucky they have the IDF to

man or one who has his hands in

was a young terrorist, and I'm
not ashamed to say that I took

Meir: Not everyone is like that.
It also depends on one's per-

only tie him up and blindfold him
Moshe: And I really have to

I feel that I'm just about to lose
my human image, I want to take
out everything on him and do
terrible things to him and I
have to remember the in-
structions we got.
(The interview goes on to talk
about whether it is only the
orders which prevent the soldiers
from treating their captives
cruelly, and the uselessness of the
cycle of violence as well as the
uselessness soldiers feel in being
in Lebanon.)

Senator Daniel Patrick

Moscow has appealed to British
Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher, seeking intervention
on behalf of her son, DAN
SHAPIRA, who was arrested
and charged with allegedly
"defaming the Soviet state and
social system." He faces a three-
year prison term if convicted.
According to the mother, the
charges are based upon letters
Dan wrote to Soviet officials, in
which he repeatedly expressed
his desire to repatriate to Israel.
Seeking Thatcher*s help "as both
a head of state and a mother,"
Aleksandra acknowledged that
Soviet officials have often used
appeals addressed to them as a
pretext for later criminal
prosecution for slander. She
expressed concern that a "verdict
has been decided" before the case
is tried.

exception is being made here

reflects the reaction of many
members of the Jewish com-

(To be fair, however, it should
be pointed out that several people
also had an adverse reaction:
they felt that despite the efforts
by the church to make the snow's
content "innocuous" and inof-
fensive, it was still highly
religious in nature and, even
more important, the church
tended to mislead in its ad-
vertising, giving people the
impression that the show was
Israeli, and that the Jewish
Federation was involved in
sponsoring it .

Good News Church
Dear Reverend Croft:
As we entered the FAU
Auditorium, my friend mur-

Gentiles offer you a show called
'For Israel With Love' better
make sure there's no broken glass
in your seat."
She spoke with bitterness

experiences in the Christian
I grew up in New York's East
Bronx, in a quarter peopled
largely by recent Jewish im-
migrants, refugees from poverty
and from Tsarist pogroms. My
first teacher had her brand new
dass lined up in the hallway. She
stopped a passing colleague and,
with a contemptuous wave at her
flock, said, "Well, here they are,
smelling of gefilte fish."
The after-hours Hebrew School
and Synagogue I attended,
abutted a Polish Orthodox
Church. Our temple's walls were
bescrawled with epithets. The
mildest "Dirty Sheenies" and
"Dirty Kikes." To get into our
sanctuary, we had to run a
gauntlet of thugs. Winters, they
hurled iced snowballs at the kids
they couldn't grab; other
seasons, it was stones.
My cynical friend's husband
knew a childhood in an East
huropean shtetl where the
Mother Church preached a
virulent anti-Semitsm, practiced
by its congregants with zealous

some perpetrated it and the
rest were indifferent to it.
So we who came to the Good

pushovers fpr some eyangelical
ploy. We were interested, and

Prospective participants in the
1985 Family Mission to Israel
scheduled for this summer met
for the first coffee-meeting
recently at the home of Linda and
Steve Melcer.
The Family Mission will take
place from July 4 through July
14, as part of the National UJA
Mission to Israel. It affords
families a rare opportunity,
among other things, to celebrate
a child's becoming Bar or Bat
Mitzvah in Israel. Indeed, the
Melcers, who have already taken
part in one mission, are planning
to do just that and other
families are considering doing the
same thing.
At the Melcers' home,
Marianne Bobick, president of
the South County Jewish
Federation, and her husband Ed.
Family Mission chairman, gave
an overview of the advantages in
going on a mission, as well as
personal impressions and
anecdotes. Steve Melcer showed
an excellent slide presentation of
pictures taken on the mission in
which he took part, and Toni and
Arnold Berliner, who par-
ticipated in last summer's family
mission, gave an exciting account
of their experiences.

The next coffee meeting for
prospective participants will be
held in early May. For more
information on date and place, or
on the mission itself, please

Israel Bonds
Century Village Israel
Bond Drive Tops Goal
A capacity crowd heard noted
author and journalist Robert St.
John express his pride and
concern for Israel. His comments
seemed more poignant, since St.
John is not Jewish.
His commitment began 37
years ago in Bucharest where he
watched the slaughter of Jews
and realized he was born to a
group of people who did horrible
things to another group. At that
time he dedicated himself to the
Jewish people. He has been to
Israel 32 times, researching
books and on speaking
"Each trip is a spiritual and
intellectual refueling," said St.
John. "We have prayed for 2,000
years, 'next year in Jerusalem'
. now that we have it we must
keep it. As a friend I warn you. If
you let anything happen to the
Jewish State, then God help the
Jews of the Diaspora I would
not want to live in a world in
which Israel did not exist."

breakfast, spoke of her arrival

Hamlet Surpasses All Expectations
A warm and dedicated crowd
gathered at the new home of
Betty and Al Feldman to
celebrate the victorious Israel
Bond campaign of 1986. The
magnificent home, overlooking a
lake and the golf course, was
filled with an atmosphere of love
and commitment as 70 people
cheered the results of the hard-
working committee.
Phil Rosenblum. chairman,
announced a total of $530,000 in
bonds sold this year at the
Hamlet. The committee's success
was due to the excellent
leadership of Rosenblum and
Sam Fox, whose many years of
dedication to Israel Bonds give
him an understanding of how to
appraoch the project.
At the celebration Phil and
Sam exchanged quips and poems,
adding to the joyous atmosphere
created by Mickey Freeman, a
New York comedian who en-
tertained the crowd. "It gives me
a sense of pride to preside over
these festivities today," said
Rosenblum. "The chairmanship
was a job I took reluctantly but
because of the excellent results
and the friendships that resulted,
it was a task I came to enjoy

Rosen thai Feels Ball Will Surpass Goals
The Scholarship Ball, first to
be held on behalf of the Jewish
Community Day School's
Scholarship Fund, has been
getting a most enthuiastic
reception, reports Arnold
Rosenthal, board chairman of the
Day School. The community has
been responding to the needs of
families who desire to provide a
Jewish education for their
children and cannot afford it.
The Ball, to be held on Sunday,
April 14, at Boca Pointe,
promises to be a gala affair. "We
hope to make this an annual
tradition," said Rosenthal. "Our
student body is ever increasing in
size, and consequently the need
for scholarships is growing, too.
Educating our children is a vital
function of the Jewish com-
munity, and the overwhelming
support for the Scholarship Fund
furthers this goal."
The target of the scholarship
drive culminating with the ball is
100 scholarships (of $500 each).
At this time, two weeks before
the Ball, some 80 percent of this
goal has been achieved,
Rosenthal reported.
The Scholarship Ball is chaired
by Edward Bobick, with Mickey
Taines chairing multiple
scholarships. Honorary chairmen
for the gala event are Anne and
Henry Brenner.
Beit Yeladim, South County
Jewish Community Day School's
pre-school (ages 3-4), participated
in a "senses day" as part of their
calendar of special activities. The
children learned about the five
senses in conjunction with
Arnold Rosenthal
To reinforce the concepts,
learning centers were set up to
demonstrate each of the senses.
Bill Hance, an instructor, led a
small group of children through
each sensory experience center,
assisting them in various ac-
tivities. For example, the
children tasted foods that were
salty, sweet, sour, etc.
As a culminating activity, the
children popped corn using all
five senses in a single experience.
Going through the "sense ex-
perience" centers .
In preparation for the day, the
children created collages that
were used as display signs in each

The tenor and baritone team
complemented each other as they
blended in sweet harmony. Their
repertoire of songs can definitely
be described as "Jewish Music

title of their newest album.
Highlighted during the
evening were Yiddish favorites
like Rozinkes mit Mandlen and

Hassidic nigunim, liturgical and
a "Fiddler" medley. Also a clever
parody on Rossini's "Barber of

Blacks Join Jews For Passover Fete
The following is brought to our readers by the South County
Rabbinical Association. If there are topics you would like our
Rabbis to discuss, please submit them to The Floridian.
Delray Beach
In my last article, I used the word "non-trivia" and presented
20 items for identification. In this column, I use a more positive
word "Signifies."
If there is one holiday in the Jewish calendar which would be
considered a family holiday, this honor goes to Pesach. It was
the first holiday the Israelites observed and through which they
became a free people.
Let us take a Biblical trip through our Holy Scriptures and
see what else happened during this holiday events that are
recorded in the text or derived through Midrashic in-
terpretation. The following is presented, thanks mainly to two
poems one by Rabbi Yanni of the 7th century and the se' >nd
by Rabbi Elazar ha-Kallir of the 8th century.
The following occurred on the First Night of Pesach:
1. In the War of the Kings, when Abram (that was his name
at that time) heard that Lot was taken captive, he divided his
men into groups, attacked the enemy by NIGHT and defeated
'em and also rescued his nephew Lot (Genesis
2. When Abimelech, King of Grar, wanted to take Sarah as
his wife, God appeared to him one NIGHT in a dream and said
to him, "You are going to die, because you have taken this
woman she is another man's wife." (Genesis 20:2,3).
3. After Jacob left his father-in-law's house and Laban
pursued him for seven days until he caught up with him, God
appeared to Laban, the Aramean, in a dream at NIGHT and
warned him not to harm Jacob. (Genesis 31:22-241.
4. Jacob wrestled with an angel (in the form of man) at
NIGHT until daybreak. (Genesis 32:25).
5. The tenth plague started at midNIGHT. (Exodus 12:29).
6. Sisera, the commander of the army of Jabin, King of
Canaan, was swept away by the stars of the NIGHT. (Judges
7. Sennacherib, King of Assyria, was defeated when his army
was stricken at NIGHT in his war against King Hezekiah. (II
Kings 19:35).
8. The dream of Nebuchadnezzar and its interpretation were
revealed to Daniel at NIGHT. (Daniel 2:19).
9. King Darius the Mede passed the NIGHT fasting and was
glad to find Daniel alive in the lion's den. (Daniel 6:19-21).
10. Belshazzar saw the handwriting on the wall which Daniel
interpreted. Belshazzar was killed that NIGHT. (Daniel 5:25-
11. Ahasuerus could not sleep that NIGHT and ordered that
the official records be read to him. According to our Sages that
was the "beginning of the redemption." (Esther 6:1).
The following occurred during Pesach:
1. Three angels (in the form of man) appeared before
Abraham. One announced the birth of Isaac. (Genesis 18:2,10).
2. The other two angels continued on to the home of Lot and
he served them Matzoth (Genesis 19:1-3). The angel who was
sent to heal Abraham from his circumcision (Genesis 18:1,2),
also saved Lot and his family (Genesis 19:1.17).
3. Theth ngel destroyed Sodom and Gemorrah (Genesis
4. Joshua and his army captured Jericho. (Joshua 6:20).
5. Midian was delivered to Gideon. (Judges 7:14).
6. Queen Esther imposed a three-day fast. (Esther 4:16,17).
According to Midrash, fast days were 13th, 14th, and 15th day
of Nisan. According to Rashi. fast days were 14th, 15th, 16th of
7. Esther appeared before King Ahasuerus, saved her people,
and Haman was hanged. (Esther 5:12, 7:3-10).

The conclusion of Passover will
be observed in a special
celebration by blacks and Jews at
Congregation B'nai Israel on
Friday evening, April 12.
Members of the Ebenezer
Missionary Baptist Church, Boca
Raton's oldest and largest black
congregation, will be joining in
worship with Congregation B'nai
Israel, in a service beginning at 8
This service at the conclusion
of Passover is being undertaken
by two South Florida
congregations that have been
pioneers in the effort to improve
black-Jewish relations. Since last
summer, the congregations have
achieved a number of historic
firsts together: the first address
by a rabbi to a black
congregation in the region: the
first address by a black minister
to a Jewish congregation: and
the first joint worship service
between blacks and Jews.
According to Rabbi Richard D.
Agler, spiritual leader of
Congregation B'nai Israel, "Both
of our peoples have known the
bitterness of oppression, of
slavery, and injustice. Passover
marks the deliverance from
slavery in days gone by, and it
also points to society's redem-
ption in the future. It is the
perfect occasion for the two
communities to come together
and re-commit ourselves to the
creation of a society rooted in
freedom and justice.''

(Note: the following are
exerpts from a letter written
several years ago by the daughter
of Boca Raton residents
Holocaust survivors who took
part in the Warsaw Ghetto
uprising and were members of a
resistance organization. Ida and
Henry Warren have kindly
permitted us to reprint the letter)
Dear Mommy and Daddy,
... In the past couple of days
I 've become very absorbed in the
readings I've been doing on the
Holocaust to the point where I
read far more than was necessary
for my paper, but I couldn't put
the literature down. I thought I
knew what went on and what
happened to the Jews from 1939-
45 but I realize now, this is
something I will never know.
When I think that the two of
you were no older than I am and
yet you were facing death or
worse yet the Nazis, who
wanted to destroy you; who
made you their personal enemy
without ever having known you,
this to me is incomprehensible.
The very fact that you are both
alive today is proof to me than
the amazing amount of courage
each of you has. For I'm sure if
you were any less of the people
you are, I certainly would not be
alive today to write this.
I want to tell you that I'm
sorry I'm sorry that you had
to go through what you did and
suffer so undeservedly. I'm sorry
that life is so easy for me because
it's not fair that your generation
had to be the one chosen for this
fate, and mine is the one which
has it so easy because of all that
you fought for and won. I sup-
pose I feel a sense of guilt. I wish
I had it in my power to give you
back some of what was taken
from you.
To me it is a miracle that
people can be as strong as you
both are. To go through tragedies
and see the worst of what this
world has to offer before you've
even seen some of the best. And
yet you both started all over
again when you were given the
chance, confident that the future
would be better I'm marveling
at your optimism. Maybe I'm
beginning to really understand
what each one of you is and where
you're coming from what
makes you the way you are
today. And through this un-
derstanding I can only say that I
love you both even more if
that's possible.
I'm proud to be your daughter
I won't let people forget what
happened to you and so many
like you 40 years ago. The least
my generation can do is have the
respect to remember so that
those 6 million Jews did not die in
vain, and the Jewish Fighting
Organization (ZOB) fought for a
cause that was worth fighting for
human dignity.

make humanitarian efforts to
rescue various types of people, I
think instead of reporters and
senior Administration officials
discussing it in public, it's best
left to the historians," Regan
"You can blow these things
very easily," Regan continued.
"And I would suggest that in the
future we may be trying to rescue

who are trapped for one reason or
another. And I don't think it
serves any good purpose to
discuss it."

The National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory
Council, in a statement, said,
"We are profoundly moved by
the report of the three-day
operation completing the
evacuation of virtually all of the
Ethiopian Jews left in the refugee
camps after the airlift was halted
in January, and we welcome the
actions of the United States
government. It is very much in
the spirit of the special
relationship of the United States
and Israel."
According to media reports of
the airlift, the operation involved
the United States Air Force, the
CIA and the State Department.
The evacuation, the reports said,
brings to Israel virtually all
Ethiopian Jewish refugees who
were stranded in Sudan after the
airlift carried out by Israel from
November to January was
halted. Some 8,000 Jews were
reportedly brought to Israel
during that operation.

The White House is widely

there are no precise figures of
