Evacuates Tyre To End Second Stage
By GIL SEDAN
Ud HUGH ORGEL
|L AVIV (JTA) -
[Israel Defense Force
inced Monday af-
)n that the IDF has
id the coastal city
yre, completing the
Id stage of its three-
withdrawal from
Lebanon.
[is now deployed in the
belt which roughly
els the international border
and will remain there for about
one month. The IDF spokesman
said all Israeli troops will be out
of Lebanon by June 5, the third
anniversary of the start of the
Lebanon war. He stressed that
they would re-cross the border
only if a clear and imminent
threat to Israel develops inside
Lebanon.
ISRAEL RADIO said that the
area from which the IDF
departed today covers some 400
square kilometers (150 square
miles) and contains about
125,000 inhabitants, mostly
Shiite Moslems. Chief of Staff
>res In Favor' of Israel Joining
U.S. in 'Star Wars' Research
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) Premier Shimon Peres
[that he personally was "unequivocally in favor" of a
live response to the Reagan Administration's in-
to Israel to participate in research for the
egic Defense Initiative (SDI), popularly known as
Wars."
iPeres told the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Security
pnittee that the SDI program signified a scientific
Jution and it was clearly in Israel's interest to be
^ved in the technology from the outset.
PERES' REMARKS to the Knesset committee did
constitute a formal reply to the invitation U.S.
Wse Secretary Caspar Weinberger extended to
Ne Minister Yitzhak Rabin in Washington last
th. The formal response is still being drafted by
i experts and must be approved by the Cabinet
" it is conveyed to Washington.
Gen. Moshe Levy said he ex-
pected that the Lebanese army
and the Shiite Amal militia
would take over security
responsibilities in that area.
He said the move reduced by
half the number of Israeli
soldiers in Lebanon. He
described the security belt the
IDF now occupies as "less
problematic" than the regions
evacuated over the past few
weeks. It is between 8-15
kilometers deep and extends
about 12 kilometers along the
coastline. Its population is about
110,000, about half of them
Shiites.
Premier Shimon Peres told
reporters in Jerusalem that the
evacuation of tyre was carried
out slightly ahead of schedule.
He attributed this to the ef-
ficiency of the IDF.
DEFENSE MINISTER
Yitzhak Rabin told reporters
that the ethnic fighting
between Moslems and Christians
that erupted in recent days as
the IDF accelarated its pull-out,
would not be repeated in the
security belt. He said the IDF
would prevent ethnic and fac-
tional strife which could pose a
threat to Israel's security.
The Defense Minister ex-
plained that the IDF would
remain in the security belt for a
month to make sure that local
forces will be available and
capable of preventing bloodshed.
In Jerusalem, meanwhile, the
government has to contend with
rising fears among Israelis in the
towns and settlements adjacent
to the Lebanese border that the
IDF pull-out will jeopardize their
security.
After eight months of
dedicated service as spiritual
leader of Temple Beth Shalom in
Century Village of Boca Raton,
Rabbi Donald David Crain was
officially installed last week at a
gala luncheon in the Century
Village Clubhouse.
Rabbi Crain came to Temple
Beth Shalom after a
distinguished career of almost 30
years in the rabbinate both in
administrative positions and in
the pulpit. He has served with
several synagogues in New
Jersey and Connecticut, and his
last prior position was as
spritual leader of Adath Israel
Congregation in Trenton, N.J.
He served as president of the
Board of Rabbis in Central New
Jersey and the Delaware Valley

Western Wall Memorial Opens
Bleak War Dead Observance
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) A
brief but touching ceremony at
the Western Wall in Jerusalem
was featured on Memorial Day, a
24-hour period of mourning and
remembrance in honor of Israel's
war dead.
President Chaim Herzog, who
spoke at the Western Wall,
noted that those ancient stones
witnessed the destruction of the
Temple 2,000 years ago. "May
we remember that the fallen in
Israel's wars did not fall this
time on the altar of destruction,
but rather for rebirth, existence
and life," he said.
Flags raised all over the
country flew at half mast. The
wail of sirens signalled the start
of memorial services at military
cemeteries and monuments to
fallen soldiers. In classrooms,
students observed the memorial
and recalled former schoolmates
who fell in battle.
CHIEF OF STAFF GEN.
Moshe Levy issued a general
order which was read at all
military cemeteries and in-
stallations in the country. It said
in part, "Today, we remember
our comrades who fell, each one
of them a world unto himself. .
Some fell with the grace of youth
still etched on their faces. Some
had wed but had not yet
established a household. Others
were older and left behind entire
families."
The families and close friends
of the fallen were those who
crowded the military cemeteries
and other memorial sites. They
had grim statistics to con-
template. In the 37 years of
Israel's existence, 13,035 men
and women were killed in
combat. They include the 53
soldiers who have lost their lives
to date in Lebanon.
Israel suffered its worst
casualties in the 1948-49 war for
independence 6,074 dead. In
the Sinai campaign of 1956, and
subsequent clashes with in-
filtrators, 972 soldiers died. The
1967 Six-Day War, Israel's
greatest victory, cost 803 lives;
but the war of attrition with
Egypt that followed took
another 738.
THE 1973 Yom Kippur War
was Israel's second worst in
terms of casualties. It left 2,569
soldiers dead. Another 68 died in
further clashes stemming from
that war.
U.S. Trade Area Agreement Signed and All But Delivered
By JUDITH KOHN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -' Israel
and the United States have signed into
effect an agreement unprecedented in
the history of U.S. trade policy that
will remove all trade barriers on goods
and services exchanged between the two
countries.
In a signing ceremony at the House
Ways and Means Committee, Israel's
Minister of Commerce and Industry,
Ariel Sharon, and special U.S. Trade
Jtepresentative William Brock stressed
that the agreement would, benefit the
economies of both the U.S. and Israel
and serve as a precedent for future
similar agreements with other countries.
A STATEMENT read by Brock from
President Reagan called the agreement a
"milestone in our efforts to liberalize
trade."
The U.S.-Israel Trade Area
agreement, concluded in March, will
eliminate tariffs and other trade barries
in phases over a 10-year period. Congress
authorized the President to conclude the
agreement last year and to submit it for
"fast track" consideration and approval
by the House and Senate.
"There will be some debate, but most
of that's behind us now. We've done the
hard part," Rep. Sam Gibbons (D., Fla.),
chairman of the Ways and Means
Committee's subcommittee on in-
ternational trade, who spoke at the
ceremony, told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency.
HAVING RUSHED to the ceremony
from a luncheon address to the annual
policy conference of the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in
Arlington, Va., Brock said the
agreement is "testimony to the political
will on both sides."
Sharon, speaking for the Israeli
government, said, "I believe that the
agreement we have signed today will
strengthen the relations those deep,
strong, traditional relations between
the greatest democracy in the world, the
U.S., and the only one that exists in the
Middle East, in the region, in Israel."

Nearly 600 members of the
congregation gave Rabbi Crain a
standing ovation as he confessed
what trepidations he had at first
about taking a pulpit with an all-
adult congregation, only to find
that the commitment and in
many cases the "rebirth" to
Judaism demonstrated by the
congregants made the task a
rewarding one.
The congregation, which is
currently meeting in a wing of
the Century Village

the initial steps of constructing a
new temple building to house the
congregation of more than 1,000
members. The edifice was
planned by architects

NEW YORK (JTA) -
Two Christian anti-Nazi
leaders of the White Rose
resistance movement who
were beheaded by the Nazis
in 1943 will be remembered
this Friday by American
and European Jewish and
Christian leaders who will
gather at the Perlacher
cemetery near Munich for a
memorial service
The American Jewish
Congress, in announcing the
planned memorial service at the
graves of the two German
resistance leaders, Hans Scholl
and his sister Sophie, also an-
nounced that a memorial service
will be held the same day at the
site of the Dachau concentration
camp, described at a news
confereence here "as the
granddaddy of all the con-
centration camps in Europe."
THE COMMUNAL services
are an outgrowth of opposition
to the planned visit Sunday to a
German military cemetery in
Bitburg, West Germany by
President Reagan that has
aroused intense criticism from
Jewish organizations and
veterans groups. According to
the AJCongress, Reagan's
planned visit has resulted in the
"diversion of public attention
from the true significance" of the
anniversary of the defeat of Nazi
Germany and the liberation of
the Nazi death camps.
"These are occasions to pledge
that the evil unleashed by Hitler
will never be forgotten and will
never be allowed to be repeated,"
Theodore Mann, AJCongress
president, said.
"To remember the many
thousands of Americans -whose
lives were lost in the war; to
remember the genocide of six
million European Jews and the
murder of five million Chr

Last Jews of Sidon Leave Long
History of Good Life Behind Them
By RICHARD LOBELL
ROSH HANIKRA,
Israel Members of the
Levy family were the last
Jews of Sidon. They were
- the final vestige of a
community that once
numbered 500 Jews who
lived in* peace with their
neighbors near the
Mediterranean in Southern
Lebanon.
The Levy family Jamille
(Yaffai. who is 54, her four
children ages 17 to 25, her sister
and their mother left with the
withdrawing Israeli Defense
Forces from the ancient city that
could no longer be called their
home.
I interviewed them in Sidon
before the Israeli withdrawal
began; they passed by here en
route to Jerusalem.
"MY HUSBAND, Yosef, who
was a tailor, died in 1977. and we
considered moving then,'" said
Mrs. Levy, a fifth generation
Sidonese Jew. "But his brother
was still here then, and he looked
after us. When my daughter,
Malka, married seven years ago,
and she and her husband moved
to Brazil. I thought the family
might follow her. However, we
felt my mother was too old and
ill to face such a move and the
other four children were still in
school. In any case we weren't
badly off and Sidon had always
been our home."
The Levy home was a spacious
old apartment on the top floor of
a two-story building overlooking
the Mediterranean, the fishing
port of Sidon, and the remains of
a Crusader castle that juts out
into the sea. Old postcards show
this area as picturesque and
colorful. Today, after years of
civil war and other fighting, the
area is in ruins.
THE LEVYS' home is at the
edge of the Casbah, the city's
marketplace. The area was once
mostly Jewish and the narrow,
twisting lanes which wind their
way from her door to the
synagogue in the middle of the
Casbah, once passed mainly
Jewish homes and shops.
In 1948, after the outbreak of
the Arab-Israeli war, the Levys
and other Jews of Sidon fled to
the mountains or the anonymity
of Beirut. Although Lebanon
remained neutral in the war, the
Jews, being Jews, feared
reprisals. The Levy family
returned from the mountains
after a year.
The four subsequent Arab-
Israeli wars were also tense
times for the Jews of Lebanon,
although they enjoyed freedom
unheard of in any other Arab
country. But over the years,
more and more Lebanese Jews
felt that Sidon held no future for
them. Since 1975, the Levys
have been the last Jews of Sidon.
Mrs. Levy still holds the keys
to the synagogue, in the alleys of
the old marketplace. She would
frequently stop to say "hello" to
her neighbors. Most of them
were Palestinians but Mrs. Levy
was on excellent terms with
them.
BEFORE LEAVING Sidon
for good, she took one last walk
through the neighborhood that
had been home to her and her
family for so many generations.
She pointed to doors, "The
Cohens lived here. Over there,
the Simantovs." She stopped by
the closed doors of what had
been her husband's tailor shop;
she seemed wistful.
Another few bends in the
confusing maze of dark alleys,
then Mrs. Levy reached a locked
door. The synagogue was well
over a hundred years old.
The pale blue walls were
crumbling and the bimah, the
platform where the cantor used
to chant Hebrew melodies,
looked as though it would topple
over at any moment. Some
prayer shawls and books sat in
an old cupboard, left there by
Israeli soldiers.
PERHAPS fittingly, the last
place that Mrs. Levy went to bid
farewell was the Jewish
cemetery, on a hill overlooking
the sea. A Palestinian refugee
camp now surrsounds the old
cemetery, and the tombstones
are in disrepair. Children in
ragged clothing played in the
sand among the graves.
Yaffa Levy stopped by her
husband's grave and stood
silently for a while. "This has
been our home for so long," said
Mrs. Levy, staring southwards
over the graves to the sea. "I
wish we could stay, but now it is
no longer possible."

Keen Interest'
Rabbis Want To Fill Zimbabwe Pulpit
By KEVIN FREEMAN
Boston
Several Conservative
rabbis are expressing "their
keen interest" in going to
Zimbabwe to fill that
Jewish community's need
for a rabbi and spiritual
leader, according to Rabbi
Richard Yellin of Temple
Mishkan Tefila in Chestnut
Hill, Mass.
Describing it as "a mission of
mitzvah," Yellin said that he
had approached rabbis about the
post in Zimbabwe at the con-
vention of the Rabbinical
Assembly in Miami last month.
He suggested that a good
candidate for the post would be
either a student just out of a
rabbinical school or a retired
rabbi.
YELLIN HAS A special
interest in the Jewish com-
munity of Zimbabwe. Many
members of his synagogue are
former residents of Zimbabwe.
Also, he returned last month
from an eight-day visit to the
country formerly known as
Rhodesia.
The 42-year-old rabbi was
invited to Zimbabwe by the
representative body of Zim-
babwean Jewry, the Central
African Board of Jewish
Deputies. He had been asked as
an outsider to assess the
community's operations and
needs, and perhaps provide
suggestions for strengthening
relations with other groups in
Zimbabwe and. in general, its
stature among world Jewry.
Yellin described Zimbabwean
Jewry as being at a
"crossroad filled with
probabilities of taking off
positively or going down
negatively." He cited several
reasons for this view, among
them the economic situation and
travel restrictions, both of which
have a direct effect on the
Jewish community.

"All those involved in capitalist
endeavors are in a bind," he
said. There have been rumors of
nationalizing private industries,
although this has not happened,
he said.
Furthermore, the govern-
ment's Marxist-Socialist
rhetoric, along with support for
the Palestine Liberation
Organization, which has an
Embassy in Harare, the capital,
and Zimbabwe's general
rhetorical support for so-called
liberation movements in the
Third World makes the "Jewish
community very, very nervous,"
Yellin said.
But despite these aspects of
life in Zimbabwe, the Jewish
community lives relatively
modestly and there are Israelis
in the country and according to
Yellin, Zimbabweans privately
trade with Israel.
ZIMBABWEAN Jewry dates
back to the late 1880's. In 1880,
four Jews participated in a
pioneering trek across the
Limpopo River into the African
Kingdom of Monomotapa which
is now part of Zimbabwe. In
1893, 30 Jews participated in the
nearly 600-strong white army
during the bloody Matabele
War.
There are other reports that
chronicle the growth and
development of the Zimbabwean
Jewish community, such as the
first Jewish meeting at the
Masoni Hotel in Salisbury, now
Harare, to the souring of the
Jewish relationship with the
former regime of Ian Smith,
premier of white-minority-ruled
Rhodesia.
The Jewish community
reached its peak some time ago
at 7,500 persons, and has slowly
declined in population since 1980

Paula Hawkins (R., Fla.) took
part in the national Days of
Remembrance observances of the
U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Council on the 40th anniversary
of the liberation of the Nazi

a member of the Council.
The three memorial events in
Washington drew many
prominent Americans as
speakers, including Secretary of
State George P. Shultz. Senate
Majority Leader Bob Dole,
Council Chairman Elie Wiesel
and others.
THE COUNCIL is an in-
dependent Federal agency
established by Congress to hold
annual ceremonies com-
memorating the six million Jews
and millions of others who died
in the Nazi era, and to create a
U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Museum in Washington. The
U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Museum campaign, the fund-
raising arm of the Council, is
raising the $100 million needed
for the Museum. President
Reagan serves as honorary
chairman.
The official campaign kick-off
was marked by a reception
sponsored by Senate Majority
Leader Dole and Transportation
Secretary Elizabeth Dole.
Speaking at the reception were
Sen. Dole. Sen. Howard Met
zenbaum, and campaign co-
chairmen Mies Lerman and
Sigmund Strochlitz. The co-
chairmen announced f 10 million
in advance gifts and pledges
have already been received.

the Catholic world "to

which is the fruit, above

ues."
Pope John Paul II
THE RETROSPECTIVE, in
effect a survey of what all of this
has meant, was organized and
sponsored by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, and three Catholic in-
terreligious organizations the
Pontifical University, Centra Pro
Unione, and Sisters of Zion
(SIDIC) in cooperation with
the Holy See's Commission for
Religious Relations with
Judaism, represented by
Johannes Cardinal Willebrands,
president of the Commission and
Msgr. Jorge Mejia, its secretary.
At the Papal audience, Rabbi
Ronald Sobel, senior rabbi of
Temple Emanu-El in New York
and chairman of the ADL's
intergroup relations- committee,
observed, "The past two decades
of relations between the Jewish
people and the Church are
nothing less than a modern
miracle reversing 2,000 years
of previous relationship .
Truly, this is God's doing."
Addressing the opening
session of the colloquium,
Nathan Perlmutter, national
director of the ADL, denounced
totalitarianism and political
extremism of the right or left.
He said it was "contemptuous of
our personhood which is by
way of saying, totalitarianism in
its actions hates God."
It provided the underpinnings
for the Holocaust, he said,
adding, in a quotation from
historian Hannah Arendt, "The
Nazis counted on the indifference
of the West, on its willingness to
see the Jews finally erased from
the memory of man ."
POPE JOHN Paul II, who
addressed the gathering last
Friday, also made the point that
absence of faith in God brought
on the Holocaust. Jews and
Christians must get to know
each other better "as members of
religions closely linked to one
another," he said.
He observed that the
colloquium was "a sign of
maturity in our relations" and
the need of both Christians and
Jews to believe in God in the
present secular context.
Referring to the joint com-
memoration of Yom Hashoah,
the Day of Remembrance of the
Holocaust, which took place on
the second day of the
colloquium, the Pope said:
"I note the reference in our
program to the catastrophe
which so cruelly decimated the
Jewish people, before and during
the war, especially in the death
camps. Let us pray together that
it will never happen again, and
that whatever we do to get to
know each other better, to
collaborate with one another and
to bear witness to the one God
and to his will, as expressed in
the Decalogue, will help make
people still more aware of the
abyss which mankind can fall
into when' we do not
acknowledge other people as
brothers and sisters, sons and
daughters of the same heavenly
father."
RECALLING THAT the
colloquium had set aside a time
for remembrance of. the
Holocaust, the Pope added,
"And how could we forget that
out of the ashes of Auschwitz
rose the miracle of Israel."
An earlier speaker, Joseph
Licten, the ADL's representative
in Rome for the past 15 years,
who explained the purposes of
the colloquium before it con-
vened, noted: .
"At this moment, the greatest
desire of the Jewish communities
of the world would be to see
diplomatic relations established
between the Vatican and Israel,
thus formalizing the existing
relationship and bearing witness
to the true understanding, on the
part of the Holy See, of the
emotional and religious
significance of this land for the
Jewish people."
But apart from the Pope's
reference to Israel rising from
the ashes of Auschwitz, there
was no hint of any diplomatic
link to the Jewish State.
SOBEL, nevertheless, said
that American Jews feel that the
path undertaken by the Pope
toward Israel is constructive. He
mentioned as a positive example
the recent meeting between John
Paul II and Israel's Premier,
Shimon Peres.
Sobel, along with Cardinal
Willebrands and Msgr. Mejia,
deplored the fact that in some
places, in some countries in
Latin America, "we continue to
hear echoes of the teachings of
contempt, while in Oberam-
mergau we are witness to themes
that have been repudiated by the
Church."
They were referring to the
Passion Play produced regularly
in the Bavarian village of
Oberammergau, the theme of
which is Jewish culpability for
the crucifixion.
The Pope did not escape
criticism at the gathering. Tulia
Zevi, president of the Union of
Italian Jewish Communities,
took him sharply to task for the
audience he granted to extreme
rightwing members of the
Parliament of Europe on Apr.
10. They included Jean-Marie Le
Pen, leader of the National Front
in France, whom Zevi called
"that notorious French
xenophobe and anti-Semite."
U.S. Senator Arlen Specter (R, Pa.) and Philadelphia City
Councilwoman Joan Specter will receive the American ORT
Federation Community Achievement Award at a testimonial
dinner at the Warwick Hotel in Philadelphia June 6. They will
be honored 'in recognition of their commitment to public ser-
vice and their accomplishments in their respective political
roles.'

Rime Minister's Dinner Inaugurates Club
With stars twinkling and
breezes blowing, a group of
dedicated supporters of Israel
gathered on the patio of Leonard
and Eleanor Weisenberg's home
for an elegant dinner in
celebration of the success of the
new Prune Minister's Club.
Abner Levine. president of the
newly-inaugurated South County
State of Israel Bonds Prime
Ministers Club, said he was
thrilled to announce that "our
club went over the SI million
dollar mark with purchases by
28 local members. In addition,
the club has 10 more 1965
members who have purchased in
their northern communities, but

The dinner was truly a
celebration! After cocktails and
hors d'oeuvres everyone enjoyed
a sumptuous buffet dinner al
fresco. Addressing the crowd in
an informal conversation.
Gershon Gan. Israel Consul for
Information in New York,
reemphasized the value bond
purchases create. "The part-
nership allows us to go forward
with many projects which
ultimately create jobs for new

The Adolph and Rose Levis
Jewish Community Center is
happy to announce the beginning
of Water Babies, a course
designed to "waterproof' in-
fants. The course will be taught
by Marilyn Beattie of Boynton
Beach, a former Olympic Gold
Medal winner.
In weekly sessions Mrs.
Beattie couples her professional
expertise with generous doses of
hugs and words of en-
couragement for her young
students. Working on the
Pavlovian theory of conditioned
response she teaches them to
grab the side of the pool, a ladder,
or stairs. "By constant
repetition, after a couple of weeks
all you do is say the words and
the children respond," she ex-
plains.
After she teaches the children
to roll over, she pulls them from
the pool deck into the water,
showing them how to turn and
grab the side. She says this
simulates what happens if a child
falls in.
Mrs. Beattie has been teaching
for 40 years. She was taught by
her father, swimmer Art
Billauist. and his friend Johnny
JNF
Announces Program
To Assist Ethiopian Jews In Israel
The Jewish National Fund of
America will assist in the ab-
sorption of Ethiopian Jews in
Israel, announced Charlotte
Jacobson, president of the JNF,
the agency responsible for af-
forestation and land reclamation
in Israel.
Jacobson reported that the
program will provide a major
source of employment for
Ethiopian Jews in JNF parks,
forests, and road building
projects throughout Israel. In
addition, playgrounds and
special outdoor recreational
facilities will be constructed in
many towns where Ethiopians
have settled.
Speaking on her return from
Israel where she met with Moshe
Rivlin. world chairman of Keren
Kayemeth Lelsrael. Mrs.
Jacobson also announced that a
major forest will be established
"in tribute to this inspiring
ancient Jewish community."
JNF's employment plan will
give the Ethiopian Jews, most of
whom are unskilled, their first
chance to become self-supporting
in their new country. It will also
ease their transition from a
subsistence way of life to a
modern Israeli society. Working
alongside JNF foresters and to
learn technicians, they will be
trained to operate modern
equipment and techniques used
in JNF's wide-ranging af-
forestation, rural road con-
struction, and forest main-
tenance programs.
Jacobson noted that the
employment plan offering
newcomers an economic foothold
in Israel resembles one of the
proudest chapters in JNF's 84-
year history. In the years im-
mediately following Israel's
independence, when nearly a
million Jews driven out of Arab
countries were absorbed by
Israel, JNF became the coun-
try's primary employer.
The JNF undertaking to
construct parka and playgrounds
is designed to meet the special
needs of the Ethiopians, who
have large families and are used
to spending much of their time
outdoors. These facilities will be
concentrated in two development
areas, at Huppen near Acre, and"
at Mitspe Hoshaya in the
Galilee, where many Ethiopian
Jews have settled. The
redesigned environment will
enable the immigrants to settle
into more comfortable
surroundings than those offered
at other absorption towns.
In the coming months,
Jacobson reported, a site will be
selected near Jerusalem for a
forest of 10,000 trees to be
planted in tribute to the
Ethiopian Jewish community.
"Their fortitude and spirit,
through almost 3,000 years of
isolation from the mainstream of
Jewish life," declared Mrs.
Jacobson, "is an inspiration to
us all. What better way to ex-
press our admiration and our
hopes for their future in the
homeland to which they have
been restored than to dedicate a
forest in their honor."

(SS8SSSSSSS
Reform Rabbi Raps Orthodox
For Hostility Toward Homosexuals
NEW YORK (JTA) -
A leading New York
Reform rabbi has sharply
criticized Orthodox leaders
for the hostile attitude
toward homosexual Jew9,
accusing them of in-
consistency and fanaticism
on the issue.
The charge was made by
Rabbi Abram Vossen Goodman,
in an article in Reform Judaism,
the scholarly publication of the
Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, the association of
Reform synagogues.
Asserting there was in Jewish
circles "a rift" between
fanaticism and humanity,
Vossen declared that Reform
Judaism "pictures the
homosexual community as
worthy of the same civil rights
as the rest of humankind" but
"the other party," specifically
"such movements as Agudat
Israel" would deny homosexuals
equal status.
VOSSEN QUOTED an
Agudat Israel statement July
27, 1984 in the London Jewish
Chronicle that "homosexuality is
sinful under Jewish Law. We do
discriminate against
homosexuals."
The Reform rabbi said the
"prescription" for the hostility
appears in Leviticus 20:13 ac-
cording to which sexual relations
between two men is so abhorrent
that they merit the penalty of
death. .
However, Vossen noted, in the
same chapter, verse 10, of

The order to pull out was
given at 6 ajn. local time by
Gen. Ori Orr, commander of the
northern front. The last Israeli
soldier was lifted by helicopter
from Jebel Barukh shortly after.
THE EXPENSIVE electronic
surveillance equipment had long
since been removed from that
outpost and what installations
remained were blown up to
prevent their falling into the
hands of terrorists.

Award Goes
To Denmark
PHILADELPHIA (JTA)
The American Gathering and
Federation of Jewish Holocaust
Survivors presented its first
Shofar of Freedom award to the
government and people of
Denmark for saving Jewish lives
during the Holocaust.
The award was presented
during the three-day Inaugural
Assembly of the American
Gathering of Jewish Holocaust
Survivors, which ended last
week. Eigil Jeergansen, the
Danish Ambassador in
Washington, in accepting the
award, said, "We are grateful to
do our simple human duty."
standing by to replace
departing Israeli troops.
According to the Beirut
reports, later confirmed by the
IDF, the withdrawal was closely
guarded by armed helicopters
which supervised the operation
and stood by to deal with
posisble emergencies. There was
some guerrilla harassment of
withdrawing Israeli units but no
casualties.
The pullback, carried out in an
orderly manner, was witnessed
by Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin who told reporters that
some time would be required to
complete necessary
arrangements in the security
belt. He stressed that the
pullback was a unilateral action
accomplished without coor-
dination with the Lebanese
authorities.
IT WAS completed on the eve
of Israel's Independence Day.
The final removal of IDF troops
from Lebanese soil to positions
behind the international border
is expected to be completed
before the third anniversary of
the invasion of Lebanon, June 5,
1982.
The IDF helicopter guarding
the operation dropped leaflets to
the local Lebanese population
warning them not to become
involved in anti-Israel activities
by terrorists. They were in-
formed that the Lebanese
government is now fully
responsible for the maintenance
of peace and order in the region
evacuated by the IDF.
There is now, for the first
time, a physical separation
between the IDF and Syrian
forces entrenched in Lebanon's
Bekaa valley. Syria continues to
occupy large areas of Lebanon.
It constitutes the strongest
military force in that country
and, in the Israeli view, calls the
tune for the government in
Beirut.
POSSIBLE FUTURE moves
by Syria were discussed in some
detail by Rabin in an interview
with Israel Radio's English
language service.
Rabin said that in the wake of
the IDF withdrawal some Syrian
support for terrorist activity
against Israel could be expected.
But he anticipated no general
confrontation with Syria.
Asked what Israel would do in
the event of hostile moves by
Syria, Rabin replied: "It's too
early to say what the Syrians
will do. I tend to believe that
Syria today would like to
conduct a policy that, on one
hand, would encourage and
support terrorist acts as long as
we are in Lebanon, and maybe
even against targets in Israel
once we complete our
redeployment along the in-
ternational border.
"At the same time, I believe
Syria will refrain from doing
anything which could bring
about a direct military con-
frontation between themselves
and Israel. They may, here or
there, move a little bit toward
the south. But they know and
I will not elaborate what
might be intolerable to us."
Rabin added that Israel would
not hesitate to act against
terrorist targets in areas under
Syrian control, if necessary, but
would try to refrain from at-
tacking Syria directly.

CandleUghting: 7:37 p.m. Shabbat ends: 8:48 p.m.
The following, from Rabbi Arthur ChieVs "Guide to Sidrot
and Haftarot," is presented as a service by the South County
Jewish Federation.
SIDRAH EMOR Leviticus 21-24
The Sidrah, which is made up of four chapters, deals with
various laws.
The first two chapters are about the Kohanim; laws con-
cerning them include: rules of mourning when death occurs in
their families, marriage rules, such as whom they can take as
wives, and what physical ailments can disqualify them from
serving as Priests in the Sanctuary.
The third chapter of the Sidrah deals with the Sabbath, the
Holy Days and the Festivals. The weekly Sabbath and the
Holidays which come at different seasons of the year are in-
tended to teach Israel the holiness of time. On the Sabbath and
on the various Holidays there is the opportunity to stop from
work and business: On these days, Israel is to pause, to consider
life's meaning and purpose, and to be refreshed.
The fourth chapter of the Sidrah returns to some of the duties
of the Kohanim: to keep the Sanctuary Lamp burning at all
times and to place twelve Chalot on the Sanctuary Table, freshly
baked for each Sabbath.
A number of laws are then presented concerning blasphemy of
G-d's name, murder, assault of humans, killing of another's
animal, and the punishments for these crimes.
The Sidrah ends with a very important lesson, that there shall
be equality of treatment, under the law. for stranger and
Israelites alike.
HAFTARAH EMOR Ezekiel 44.15-31
The Haftarah is from the Book of Ezekiel. The prophet
Ezekiel was among the Judean exiles who were taken captive by
Nebuchadnezzar to Babylonia, in 598 B.C.E. It was a very
difficult time for his people. Had G-d rejected and forgotten
them? Was there any hope for a return to Jerusalem? Ezekiel
has no doubt in his heart. His faith in G-d is strong and he
shares that faith with the exiles. Ezekiel assures them in a
variety of ways that G-d will yet bring about their return to
Jerusalem.
In the Haftarah Ezekiel offers his vision of a Temple rebuilt in
Jerusalem. He pictures in detail the Kohanim, descendants of
Zadok, the High Priest under King Solomon, carrying out their
duties in the new Jerusalem Temple. They shall be honorable
Kohanim teaching the people the difference between right and
wrong. These Kohanim, shall be fair judges among the people.
The link between the Sidrah and the Haftarah is the theme of
priestly duties. In the Sidrah these duties are presented for the
first time. Ezekiel, many centuries later, reviews them for the
exiles in Babylonia.

conductor Viktor Ullmann was a
pupil of Arnold Schonberg's in
Vienna. He later moved to
Prague, where he worked as a
music teacher and joined Czech
composer Alois Haba in ex-
perimenting with quarter-tones.
He was arrested in 1942 and sent
to Theresienstadt.
His score for "The Emperor of
Atlantis" is strongly influenced
by Schonberg's early, late
Romantic style of composition.
It also uses jazz and chorus
techniques reminiscent of Kurt
Weill.
THE HANDWRITTEN score
and two versions of the libretto
were not discovered until the
mid-1970s in London. The opera
was first performed in 1975 in

By GIL SEDAN
TIBERIAS (JTA) -
Charlotte Jacobson, president of
the Jewish National Fund of
America, has expressed concern
over the future of Galilee which
she sees as underpopulated and
short of development funds.
Jacobson, who was in Israel for
the 59th National Assembly of
the JNF, attended by 300
delegates, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that
American Jews are not suf-
ficiently aware of the develop-
ment needs of Galilee because
there is not enough direct contact
between them and this part of the
country and the people who live
here.
She spoke to the JTA while on
a tour of Galilee and the Golan
Heights. The JNF is engaged in
several projects. in northern
Israel. Apart from its traditional
afforestation and land
reclamation work, it is creating
public recreational areas which
will serve as tourist attractions.
One is planned for Tiberias on the
shores of the Sea of Galilee.
Jacobson said one of the
challenges facing the JNF is to
strengthen the mitzpim, the hill-
top outposts being built in the
region as the nucleus of future
full-fledged settlements. The
project was begun eight years
ago and, according to Jacobson,
it has suffered from lack of funds
and the region, consequently, is
under-populated. "We have a
feeling that people want to come
to those settlements but there are
not enough facilities," Jacobson
said.

of the Roman Catholic Church,
and leaders of the Anglican,
Presbyterian and Methodist
churches, urging that they
extend contacts with the Jewish
community, including speaking
to Jewish congregants, con-

building coalitions.
One poignant comment, Yellin
said, came from a leading
member of the Jewish com-
munity there. He said that if
Zimbabwean Jewry can make it
in that country, "it will be the
first time in history that a
sizable Jewish community will
be able to succeed and do well in
this kind of environment."
"So black Africa has a lot at

well-being of the Jewish com-

South County Fetes Israel Day
One newcomer to South
County described it as "the most
pleasant baiagan I've ever been
part of." He was referring to the
four-hour celebration at the
Jewish Campus recently in honor
of Yom Ha atzmaut Israel's
Independence Day.
An estimated 1,200 people, of
all ages, took part in the
celebration, which had
something to offer for everyone.
The festivities opened with a
march of the children of the
Jewish Community Day School
and the Synagogue religious
schools into the giant guest tent,
carrying flags and banners.
Mayor Doak S. Campbell of
Delray Beach read a
proclamation (a similar
proclamation was issued by
Mayor William Konrad of Boca
Raton, but he was unable to
attend because of a previous
commitment). Federation
president Marianne Bobick
delivered the community's
greetings to all, and Rabbis Ted
Feldman, Richard Agler and
Gregory Marx shared some
words on the significance of Yom
Ha'atzmaut.
Various organizations and
synagogues had booths in which
they displayed material related
to their activities and sold
Judaica, and there were several
food and refreshment booths.
with those for falafel and knishes
being particularly popular.
Children enjoyed swimming in
the pool, using the tennis and
basketball courts, or jumping on
the giant castle-shaped balloon.
Highlighting the festivities
were performances by several
artists: Karen Weiss of Boca
Raton, accompanied by Eve
Shalley on the piano, sang a
selection of songs in tribute to
American Jewish composers;
Ya'acov Sassi sang Israeli and
