resulta or, in other
"rill completely change
[ton's stand toward
IA is mistaken. A
[>f stand requires an ex-
study of all aspects of
the problems." The commen-
tary stressed that "there
should be no hasty judgment
about the result of the
Mubarak-Reagan meeting."
The Administration gave
Congress informal notification
on Friday of its intention to
provide the Jordanians with a
$1.55 to $1.9 billion arms
package that includes 40 F20s
or F16 fighter jets; 12 mobile
improved Hawks surface-to-
air missile batteries and equip-
ment to convert 14 batteries
into mobile units; 72 Stinger
shoulder-fired surface-to-air
missiles and 36 reloads; 300
AIM-9P4 infrared air-to-air
missiles; and 32 Bradley
fighting vehicles.
A provision in the recently
passed foreign and bill makes
new arms sales to Jordan con-
tingent on the King's public
commitment to recognize
Israel and negotiate with it
"promptly and directly."
The Administration has
argued that Hussein has
already met these conditions,
but legislators have made it
clear that the Jordanian
monarch will need to take a
bold move if a battle with Con-
gress is to be avoided.
The continued lack of move-
ment was also underscored in
a speech here recently by
Egyptian Foreign Minister
Ismat Abdel Meguid, who
lamented that "promising
chances for peace continue to
be missed."
"Imposing limited concepts
and insistence of guaranteeing
the outcomes of the
preliminary dialogue before it
starts would create by itself an
unnecessary obstacle which
may hamper our efforts in the
search for a peaceful settle-
ment," Meguid warned in a
keynote address to the annual
conference of the Middle East
Institute.
The Egyptian Embassy's
deDUtv Chief of Mission, Raouf
Ghoneim, delivered the speech
because the Foreign Minister
had been detained in New
York. Meguid, in his prapared
keynote address, called it "un-
fair" in the 1980's "to strictly
adhere to formulas of the
1970's like that of not
recognizing or negotiating
with the PLO.
Mubarak himself, in his
General Assembly address,
hardly touched on the peace
process, focussing instead on
economic development issues.
In any case, it is Hussein on
whom progress in the peace
process is hinging now, and
the Reagan Administration
was undoubtedly hoping for a
tangible sign of some move-
ment on his part that would
both enable the U.S. to meet
with the joint delegation and
justify the proposed sale of
new arms to Jordan.
Consequently, while the Ad-
ministration may be quick to
seize Hussein's address to the
UN General Assembly as a
new evidence that Jordan has
met the demands of Congress,
the King's more explicit hints
of Jordan's willingness to
negotiate directly with Israel
appear unlikely to satisfy a
majority of legislators.
Using the language of the
foreign aid act amendment,
Hussein said in his address:
"We are prepared to negotiate
under appropriate auspices
with the government of Israel,
promptly and directly, under
the basic tenets of Security
Council Resolutions 242 and
338."
However, Hussein insisted,
as he did in his visit here last
May, that "appropriate
auspices" should be an inter-
national conference.
Egypt Worries
Soviet Tricks
In a strangely titled column call-
ed "A Word of Love," Mohamm-
ed Hayawan told his Al
Junhuriyah (Cairo, Aug. 7)
readers that recent Soviet over-
tures to Israel are typical of
Soviet tricks. "Have the Arabs
forgotten that Israel usurped
Arab territory with Soviet and
Czechoslovak weapons? Have
they forgotten that the Soviet
Union was the first to recognize
Israel despite its record of aggres-
sion ...? The Soviet Union con-
tributed to the creation of Israel,
supplied it with arms, immigrants,
and scientists, and gave it
everything and more, but the
Arabs sometimes have no
memory."
He concluded that virtually all
the 'military tension" in the Mid-
dle East can be ascribed to the
alliance between Israel and the
Soviet Union. This will, of course,
be news to both Jerusalem and
Moscow.
Kahane Prevented
From Speaking at Rally
TEL AVIV (JTA) Thousands of anti-Kach and anti-
racist demonstrators packed the Wollin Square in Givatayim
near Tel Aviv recently to prevent Kach leader and Knesset
member Rabbi Meir Kahane from making his view heard.
Givatayim Mayor Yitzhak Yaron said: "We will respond to
Kahane's invitation to attend but we won't let him be heard."
Hours before the scheduled start of the Kach meeting the
square was packed with thousands of people, many of them car-
rying whistles, hooters and rattles and clappers usually used on
Purim to drown out the name of Haman during the reading of
the Megillah.
Kahane tried to speak for about half an hour, but only a score
or so of his followers in the front row of the crowd could make
out his words because of the noise of heckling and the sound of
the noisemakers.

Chef For All Seasons]
By ANITA SHALLEY
A sumptuous lunch, the latest In
Israeli-designed and manufac
tured fashions, and an opportuni-
ty to meet and hear an actress
related to the late Golda Meir
these are three of the highlights
building up excitement in an
ticipation of the first annual South
County Israel Fashion Show.
St. Andrews Country Club will
be the setting for what promises
to be a delightful program, on
Tuesday, Oct. 22. Nancy Diamond
and Mitzi Donoff, co-chairing the
event, have been hard at work
throughout the summer to put it
together, along with other plann-
ed surprises. To attend the lunch
and shew there will be 120

Actress Alice Golembo, grand-

Broadway cast of the play
"Golda" and aided playwright
William Gibson with his research
on that play. The granddaughter
of Shana Korngold, Golda Meir's

Minister's Residence in Jerusalem

pected to negotiate with an
organization such as the PLO
which undertakes terrorist
acts against Israel.
Other subjects discussed, ac-
cording to Pazner, included
the situation of Soviet Jews.
Shamir asked for the Italian
govermenfs help to aid Soviet
Jews and Andreotti reportedly
agreed to assist on that issue.
One of Shamir's most impor-
tant meetings was with Abdel
Ismat Meguid, the Foreign
Minister of Egypt. Shamir's
aide said the main subject was
the border dispute between
Israel and Egypt over Taba.
Shamir attempted to convince
Meguid to resolve the problem
through conciliation and that
this approach, favored by
Israel, is better than arbitra-
tion which is preferred by
Egypt.
Meguid, according to an
Israeli spokesman, told Shamir
that a resolution of the Taba
dispute along with progress
toward solving the Palestinian
question is a must before
Egypt would agree to return
its Ambassador to Israel. The
Egyptian Ambassador was
recalled to Cairo at the beginn-
ing of the Lebanon war in the
summer of 1982.
Other appointments on
Shamir's agenda included
meetings with the West Ger-
man Foreign Minister, Hans-
Dietrich Genscher; Foreign
Minister Hans van der Broek
of The Netherlands; Foreign
Minister Errol Mahabir of
Trinidad-Tobago; and Foreign
Minister Jacques Poos of Lux-
embourg, who represents the
EEC.
In an appearance on "Good
Morning America," the Israeli
Foreign Minister repeated
Israel s opposition to any deal
ings with the PLO. "There are
millions of Palestinian Arabs
who are not members of the
PLO," with whom Israel will
be willing to negotiate, Shamir
said.
Shamir suggested that King
Hussein of Jordan has risked
his own position by attempting
to bring PLO members into
the peace process. He said that
the presence of the PLO in
Jordan poses a threat to the
King. Shamir said that the
U.S. should try to convince
Jordan to enter into direct
negotiations with Israel. "This
is the best way that will lead to
peace," he stated.

To reach their target, the planes

directed against it.
He added: "The time has come

IN RESPONSE to questions
about the possible impact of the
retaliatory raid on the Middle

that "If there is anything that
harms the prospects of the peace
process it is the PLO's terrorist
effort headed by Arafat."
But Egypt promptly can-

President Hosni Mubarak sent a

which he spoke in angry terms
about Israel's "wanton terrorist

And Egyptian Foreign Minister
Esmat Abdel-Meguid in Cairo call-
ed the raid a "heinous criminal
action."

BUT IN Washington, the
Reagan Administration called the
Israeli action "a legitimate

White House spokesman Larry

THEODORE FELDMAN
B'Nai Torah Congregation
Now the challenge truly begins.
Remember, just a short time
ago, when so many Jews were
gathered in the synagogue for the
High Holydays.
Remember how nice everyone
looked on those days. Remember
all the nice greetings that were
passed back and forth among the
people. all of those wishes for a
happy and healthy New Year.
Remember all those lofty words
in the liturgy. the ones about
repentance and reconciliation and
forgiveness.
Remember the affirmation in
the prayers that our acts of
righteousness can change the way
of the world our own private
world as well as the world beyond
self.
Remember those lists of wrong-
doings and transgressions that
described only those sitting
around and that little twinge in
side that said "maybe 'me too."
Remember the rabbi's words
about change and how G-d gave us
this great potential to redo our
worlds.
Remember the feelings inside
about how good it is to be a Jew
and to be with all of these people
celebrating the holy day.
Remember the stirring sound of
Rabbi Theodore Feldman
the Cantor's chant of Kol Nidre.
Remember the warmth and the
tears at Yizkor time. the long-
ing for those who have left and
quietness of those moments of
prayer.
Remember the resolutions that
were made to be better Jews, to
be more sensitive and
compassionate.
Remember the resolve to do
more Jewish things to go to the
synagogue, to observe the other
holidays, to learn more.
Remember the promise made to
share that which we have with
those institutions that are vital to
our community and to those less
fortunate.
Remember the deepening of our
committments as we reflected
upon those who lost their lives just
because they were Jews or in
defense of our heritage.
Remember all of those vows,
resolutions, promises we made to
change our lives, to live more
sanely, to become more than we
have been.
Remember next Rosh
Hashanna is closer than we think.

All of those beautiful words,
feelings, thoughts, prayers. .
It is time to make them real!
El Al Reports Improved
Earnings and Performance
Israel's national flag carrier, El
Al Israel Airlines announced an
operational profit of $12.9 million
for the last fiscal year. In its 36th
year of operations, the airline also
reported improved performance
records and a stemming of
previous years losses. The
airline's on time performance
record reached a record 91
percent.
Dramatically increased tourism
to Israel, increased employee pro-
ductivity and a reduction of
operating expenses are credited
with the positive position of the
airline. Passenger load factors in-
creased by 18.7 percent to 1.47
million while freight tonnage
caried rose by 22.6 percent with
the North Atlantic load factor
climbing to 80 percent.
Since its incorporation in 1949,
El Al has carried more that 18
million passengers and has grown
from four destinations in 1949 to
28 cities on four continents. Dur-
ing the past year, operation was
expanded to include service to
Chicago and Los Angeles in the
U.S. and to Manchester, England.
In addition to daily flights bet-
ween New York and Tel Aviv, El
Al had twice weekly connections
between Miami and Tel Aviv.

Congregants walking to the
Orthodox Anshey Sfard were
rerouted around the block to
reach their synagogue.
The SFPD bomb souad
detonated the device, which
was surrounded by "the same
paper with the same words" as
the bomb that had exploded
earlier, Dickson said. "It was
the same type of bomb as the
other place, including the same
timing device."
The third was discovered
mid-afternoon at the home of
Rabbi Jacob Traub of Or-
thodox Congregation Adath
Israel in the city's Sunset
District, where a pipe bomb
was found in July. Traub's
next door neighbor alerted the
family to the suspicious-
looking pipe.
Traub, who is Orthodox, con-

Shamir Accuses PLO
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Israel's Foreign Minister and
Deputy Premier Yithak
Shamir has accused the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion of responsibility for the
murder of three Israelis abo-
ard a yacht in Larnaca, Cyprus
recently.
The Israeli minister said the
PLO perpetrated and stood
behind all recent acts of terror
in Israel. "These acts of terror
were done by the PLO and its
leader (Yasir) Arafat," he said.
Shamir added, "We will find a
way to put an end to it. We will
overcome it. We will overcome
them."
Shamir charged that the
PLO has not changed its nat-
ure, though, he noted, at-
tempts have been made
recently, even in Western
countries, to prove the con-
trary.
Bomb
Rips Rome
ROME (JTA) A powerful
bomb exploded at the British Air-
ways office, wounding 14 persons,
some seriously. Police arrested a
Palestinian, Hassan A Lab. 18, who
had confessed to hurling the ex-
plosive through the door of the
airline office.
A tab told police he was a
member of the Revolutionary
Organization of Socialist
Moslems, the same group which
had claimed responsibility for a
grenade attack on a Rome cafe on
Sept. 16. The Organization is
strongly opposed to Yasir
Arafat's leadership of the PLO
and is believed to have ties with
the pro-Syrian anti-Arafat group
led by Abu Nidal.
Atab told police he was bom in
the Shatila refugee camp in Beirut
and had acted out of "hatred" for
Israel. Another Palestinian,
Ahmad al Hussein Abu Sareyai
26, charged with the Sept. 16 at-
tack against the Cafe de Paris
ist up the street from last week's
last, also said he grew up in a
Beirut refugee camp.
The explosion sent shards of
glass some 60 yards along one of
the city's most fashionable
neighborhoods, smashed windows
in nearby buildings, and shook the
American Embassy building
around the corner.
precinct. Patrolmen from the
station "evacuated Traub's
neighbors on both sides and
about eight houses across the
stret" before the bomb squad
detonated the third bomb. The
three bombs were sent to the
Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion for investigation, accor-
ding to Dickson.
Meanwhile, police placed
synagogues and Jewish in-
stitutions, including the JCF
building which houses several
organizations, under
surveillance. Police officers
will be "physically stationed
outside all synagogues,"
Dickson said, adding the
patrols would remain "24
nours a day through Yom Kip-
pur." Patrols also will be pass-
ing rabbis' homes on a fre-
quent basis.

First Fuel Price Decline in 34 Years
TEL AVIV (JTA) The price of gasoline and cooking oil
recently dropped by four percent the first decline in fuel
prices in 34 years, since 1951. The government decision to
decrease fuel prices followed a lowering of crude oil on the world
markets.
A similar four percent decline in August in the price of fuel
oil, used in the production pi electricity, led to a decrease in
power prices, and the reduction will lead to a drop in the price of
water and other items using large amounts of fuel in their
production.
Department store prices for clothing and footwear will
decline by an average of 20 percent this month, following an
agreement just reached between the Ministry of Commerce and
Industry and the larger department stores.
Government spokesmen regard the price declines as in-
dicating the success of the economic package deal stabilizing
prices and halting the inflationary spiral.

2 Novels, Varying Quality, But Enjoyable
By MORTON I. TEICHER
Goodbye Karl Erich. By Sam
Dann. New York: St. Martin's
Press, 1985. 231 pp., $15.95.
Leah's Children. By Gloria
Goldreich. New York: Mac-
millan Publishing Co., 1985.
369 pp. $16.95.
Novels are written to give
pleasure: they are read to receive
pleasure. We read novels to be
entertained to be caught up
with the experiences and the feel-
ings of the characters in the novel.
To the degree that the author
evokes such a response, to that
degree, the novel has succeeded.
If, on the other hand, we derive no
pleasure from the novel, if we are
bored, if we put the novel down
unfinished, then the novelist has
failed.
By these tests, both thes*'
novels are reasonably successful,
one more than the other. Gloria
Goldreich has written a Jewish
soap opera. The situations she
describes are relatively familiar,
and we sense that her characters
are real. We respond to them, and
we are concerned with what hap-
pens to them.
SAM DANN, by contrast, is
somewhat less successful, partly
because his characters are not
familiar to us. Despite the
heaviness of his theme, his novel
is light and slight.
Dann's book opens in a Miami
Beach hotel room where Dr.
Richard Stammler, the house
physician, is called to tend to a
hotel guest who turns out to be
Dr. Paul Schneider, a former col-
league of his in Germany. They
were residents together in a Ger-
man hospital in the 1930's just
before Hitler came to power.
Stammler fled from the Nazis
and came to America, where he
made a life for himself as a Miami
physician. When he became too
old for his regular practice and
when his wife died, he took on the
job of hotel doctor. ,
Schneider had joined the Nazi
Party and survived the war, but
blocked out memory of his ex-
periences. As the story opens, he
is a tourist in Miami, but he is a
sick old man. confined to a
wheelchair. The meeting of the
two old fnends opens a floodgate
of recollections for Stammler.
Most of the book takes us back to
Germany in the early 1930's.
STAMMLER treated Karl
Erich of the book's title, a young
man who was suffering from a
hysterical inability to speak,
brought on by his father's death in
World War I. He is cured of his at"
fliction by Stammler and becomes
a leading member of the Nazi Par
ty. Just before Stammler carries
out his determination to flee from
Germany, he accidentally meets
Karl Erich who tries to repay his
debt to Stammler by urging him
to stay, promising that he will
make Stammler the most imp
tant doctor in Germany.
Stammler then reveals that he is
a Jew and Karl Erich, a stalwart
Nazi, is so shocked by this revela-
tion that he falls back into
mutism. Stammler's final words
to him, "Goodbye Karl Erich,"
became the book's title.
There are a few sub-plots, but
the story of Stammler and Karl
Erich is the central emphasis.
Although the author makes a
valiant effort to give the book
significance by trying to paint a
picture of pre-Hitler Germany, he
does this with thin brush strokes
that suggest a mood but which
lack depth and which come across
as colorless daubs.
CONVERSELY, Goldreich's
pictures of life in Scarsdale, in
Mississippi and on and Israeli kib-
butz have a measure of richness
and authenticity. Her book is a se-
quel to "Leah's Journey" which
told the story of a woman who
became a Jewish matriarch.
Unlike the Jewish mama of
chicken soup and newspapers on
the kitchen floor before Shabbos,
Leah became a Scarsdale matron,
maintaining a successful career as
wife, mother, artist and designer.
The first book told of her
sacrifices in supporting her hus-
band through medical school and
in raising three children. This se-
quel, as the name indicates, tells
about her daughter and two sons.
The story of each of the three
lives is told as a novella. Aaron,
the eldest, is a successful lawyer,
later a judge. He accepts a mission
given to him by his Israeli brother-
in-law to rescue a Jewish physicist
from Hungary. The physicist
turns out to be a beautiful woman
who later marries Aaron. In New
York, she combines her scientific
career with being a wife and a
mother, producing three children
and a special radar invention
which helps the Israelis.
REBECCA, the daughter, mar-
ried an Israeli after working with
him in saving Jewish children
from Europe. She and her hus-
band live on a kibbutz where she is
an accomplished artist and he is a
member of the Israeli intelligence
establishment. Their marriage
falters because he is often absent
for long periods on secret
assignments, because he is
haunted by memories of his first
wife who was killed while protec-
ting him and because a son from
that marriage is killed by the
Arabs. After Rebecca has an af-
fair during a visit to America, she
decides to return to her husband
and her two sons in Israel.

Nobil Heads Federation/UJA
Men's Division For '86
James Nobil, a Boca Raton real

chairman of the Men's Division
for the 1986 Federation/UJA
Campaign.
The appointment was announc-
ed by Marianne Bobick, president
of the South County Jewish
Shamir Meets With
Foreign Ministers
By YITZHAK RABI
INITED NATIONS -
[Ai Yitzhak Shamir,
reign Minister and Deputy
emier of Israel, who is in
York to participate in the
session of the General
isembly, opened his
lomatic activity in a
(-minute meeting with
reign Minister Giulio An-
3tti of Italy.
lie meeting was centered
I Israel's economic problems
ih the European Economic
imunity (EEC), according
[Shamir's aide and advisor,
fi Pazner, who briefed
aeli reporters here. He said
imir asked for Italian sup-
of Israel's desire that its
)rts to Europe would re-
main at the same level after
Spain joins the EEC at the end
of the year.
Andreotti reportedly said
that Italy is committed to
resolve this issue to Israel's
satisfaction during the next
three months. The two
Foreign Ministers also discuss-
ed the present situation in the
Middle East. Pazner said
Shamir stressed the latest ter-
rorist activity against Israel,
including a booby-trapped van
discovered in a Jerusalem
street and safely defused.
He said the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization was behind
this act and asked the Italian
diplomat how Israel can be ex-

Federation. Nobil replaces Larry
S. Charme, MD, who chaired the
Men's Division for the past two
years, and continues to serve as
vice president of the Federation.
Jim, who holds degrees from
Yale and NYU, became deeply in-
volved in Jewish community life in
Akron, Ohio. He served as presi-
dent of the Federation in Akron,
as well as president of the Jewish
Family Service Society there. He
has been a member of the UJA
National Cabinet, and board
member of the Council of Jewish
Federations, of the Joint Distribu-
tion Committee, and is on the
Board of Overseers of Hebrew
Union College-Jewish Institute of
Religion.
He has also served as trustee for
the Akron Jewish Center; Temple
Israel of Akron; Goodwill In-
dustries; Summit County Mental
Hygiene Clinic and Family and
Children's Service Society of
Akron. Jim is past national chair-
man of the UJA Young Leader-
ship Cabinet, and has been serv-
ing on the Federation's board in
South County for the past three
years. Last year he also served as
chairman of the Boca Raton
chapter of American Friends of
Tel Aviv University.
A number of innovations are
planned for the Men's Division for
the coming year, according to
Jim. He sees his main role in direc-
ting the campaign, as well as the
community, in the spirit of the
community theme "Into The
21st Century One Dream, One
People, One Destiny." To Jim that
means a particular appeal to bring
more people of the younger
generations ("and their number is
substantial") into involvement. It
also means a greater emphasis on
education and leadership develop-
ment, rather than on fundraising.
"We have to bear psyches on a
different basis than the Holocaust
and its results and effects," says
Jim. "My generation is probably
the last one to whom the
Holocaust had any real
significance, and, in many cases, it
did not have much even in my
generation."
The theme, however, is an ex-
cellent one "The whole concept
is exciting, and can involve many
more people than have been in-
volved in the past. I would like to
see us bring in a substantial
number of new volunteers, new
workers, new people who have not
been involved before. That does
not necessarily mean just younger
people it could be any age but
this theme can certainly help open
up the way for more young
people."
Jim says of himself that as far as
campaigning is concerned, he is a
"low key" individual, but he hopes
to improve on the quality of giving
by using the concept of more
"direct sell." In conjunction with

f>ard chairman of the Jewish Community Day
khool (right), recently presented a plaque of com-
nendation to Michael Taines "for his untiring ef-
frrts in support of the Day School and its fundrais-
ig activities." Taines, whose two children attend
he Day School, has been on the school's board for
hree years, and has been a significant force
ehind its growth. His inspiration and dedication
were largely responsible for the success of the first
annual Scholarship Ball held last spring.
Taines, a Boca resident, is married to Dalia, a
former Miss Israel. He has been a philanthropist
and active in Jewish community life for many
years, and has received the Man of the Year
Award from City of Hope; the Abba Eban Award
from the State of Israel Bonds; and the Leadership
Award from the Jewish Federation of Greater
Miami.

fundraising events, which this
year will center on various Jewish
communities in line with the
theme, young leadership and
educational sessions may be held,
while pushing the fundraising
aspect into the background. "Fun-
draising will come by itself," adds
Jim, "once people understand
why and are asked properly."
Among the innovations Jim
plans is the establishment of a
Men's Division Cabinet, in which
Young Leadership will be
represented. The latter will also
likely be split into two age
categories. Citing the great gap
between the $1,250 gifts qualify-
ing for the Annual Dinner Dance
and the $6,500 gifts which entitle
donors to take part in the Masada
Division Dinner, Jim suggested he
would like to implement a new
$3,500 gifts category with its own
event.
Pipe Bombs Mar
High Holiday
By PEGGY GLUCK
SAN FRANCISCO (JTA)
Jewish community groups
here have joined with the
mayor's office in offering
rewards totaling $20,000 for
the arrest and conviction of
the person or persons who
placed pipe bombs at a
synagogue, a rabbi's home and
a political party headquarters
on the first day of Rosh
Hashanah.
The bombs were said to have
the intensity of hand grenades
and "could have killed so-
meone," according to a police
department spokesman.
The Jewish Comunity
Federation and Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council of
San Francisco, the Peninsula,
Marin and Sonoma Counties,
the American Jewish Con-
gress' Northern California
Division, and Mayor Dianne
Feinstein's office announced
the rewards recently. Each
organization and the mayor's
office put up $5,000.
"Stop the Jew Food Tax,"
"Death To All Zionist Jews"
and "Free the People" was
written on "pieces of paper
wrapped around the bombs,"
according to Inspector Tom
Dickson. the San Francisco
Police Department's liaison to
the Jewish community.
One bomb exploded Sept. 16
at about 12:15 a.m. at the
headquarters of the Humanist
Party in San Francisco's
Sunset District. Two party
workers escaped injury in the
blast, which blew out a door
and broke windows. The new
party claims about 10,000
members, but has no connec-
tion with the Jewish
community.
The second bomb was
discovered at the Horowitz
Cultural Center at Congrega-
tion Beth Sholom in the city's
Richmond district about 8:30
a.m. by a custodian "who went
back around to the school and
saw the bomb on a ledge,"
Dickson said. The bomb at the
Center, located around the
corner from the synagogue's
main entrance, was discovered
nearly an hour after worship-
pers filled the sanctuary for
Rosh Hashanah services.
Police cleared a two-block
area near Congregation Beth
Sholom, which also included
the area near Congregation
Anshey Sfard, an Orthodox
congregation. Neither cars nor
pedestrians were allowed in

Press Digest
(Compiled from Israeli dailies
and the English-language Jewish
Press, by MARTY ERANN,
Director of Communications,
South County Jewish
Federation)
Someone suggested (we do not
recall where we read it) that
Israel should launch a peace pro-
cess in Northern Ireland, by sell-
ing arms to the anti-British fac-
tions there... It would certainly
benefit Israel economically, and
put her on the map along with
Great Britain and other Euro-
pean countries who are such ex-
perts on peace ..
It is as valid a reaction as any
to the vacent visit by Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher to
Jordan and Egypt, her ideas on
how to promote peace, and the
"deal of the century" made by
Britain with Saudi Arabia for $6
billion worth of arms.
Israel's decision to bomb the
PO headquarters in Tunisia had
just as much to do with That-
cher's invitation to PLO
representatives to come to Lon-
don as it had with the brutal
murder of three Israeli vaca-
tioners in Cyprus. This was, in-
cidentally, but another example
of a less-than-fair treatment of
Israel by the media: portraying
Israel's anti-terrorist operation
as "revenge" for the murder of
the three. Not one network
reporter or commentator
bothered to cite the fact that in
the past year there have been
600 separate terror acts or at-
tempts for which the PLO actual-
ly took "credit."
Jewish Life Rekindled In Oslo
Dozens of former partisans,
headed by Stephan Grajek.
world chairman of Jewish
Resistance Fighters, arrived at
the Diaspora Yeshiva on Mount
Zion one afternoon last week,
armed with heavy hammers, to
smash the memorial. "The
Ukrainians were worse
murderers than the Nazis," said
Grajek. "We came here to
abolish the shame perpetrated
by the Yeshiva people, who
agreed to erect this monument
in return for a fat donation. We
warned the head of the Yeshiva
to remove the abominable monu-
ment by Yom Kippur, and since
it was not done, we are doing it
now."
The Holocaust survivors took
turns, finished smashing the
stone, and stood at attention and
sang Hatikva. The police, which
arrived at the end, heard their
explanation and left without in-
tervening. (Ma ariv).
"You sold your souls to the
Devil!" yelled some Holocaust
survivors to a Yeshiva student in
the Old City of Jerusalem, as
they shattered a monument
which had been erected at the
Yeshiva for the "Ukrainians who
fell in World War II."
As the dollar's value declined
in Europe, Israel's export pro-
spects have gone up and prices
in Israel were reduced for fuel
and other commodities, leading
economists to predict that infla-
tion rates for September and Oc-
tober will be well under 5
percent.
However, as a result of the
economic measures of recent
months, the gap between the
haves and have-nots in Israel has
grown much greater, leading to
a new controversy about the
social measures now needed to
assist the underprivileged
elements of the population.

Six Jews Die in Earthquake
NEW YORK (JTA) Six Jews were killed by the earth
quake that devastated the center of Mexico City recently. They
were buried Sunday, Sept. 22, Rabbi Morton Rosenthal, director
of the Latin American Affairs department of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, informed the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency.
Rosenthal confirmed reports from other Jewish groups here
that the main Jewish residential neighborhoods in Mexico City
sustained little or no earthquake damage. But Jewish-owned
businesses, warehouses and factories near the center of the city
are believed to have suffered severe damage, and property loss
could be heavy. Those premises, however, were not occupied
during the early morning hours when the quake struck.
Israeli Engineers, JDC Aid Earthquake Victims
TEL AVIV (JTA) Civil defense specialists and Israel
Defense Force engineers went to Mexico City to assist in ongo-
ing rescue operations following the major earthquake that
devastated the heart of the Mexican capital with a death toll
estimated between 3,000 and 5,000.
The IDF engineers took with them not only sophisticated
equipment but know-how gained in Lebanon, rescuing people
buried in the rubble of buildings blasted by terrorist bombs.
Arens Protests to British Envoy
JERUSALEM (JTA) Actinar Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens summoned British Ambassador Wiliam Squire to the
Foreign Ministry recently to convey Israel's displeasure over
British plans to sell Jordan and Saudi Arabia $4.4 billion worth
of combat aircraft and other advanced weaponry and to protest
Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's invitation to two ranking
members of the Palestine Liberation Organization to meet with
her in London.
Arens told reporters after the meeting that he had informed
the British envoy that Israel regards these moves as a radical
deviation from the common position taken by Western
democratic nations with respect to the Middle East.
He said he disagreed with the views expressed by some
Western experts that the weapons sales would not affect the
military balance of power in the region. "I would be very surpris-
ed if anybody with knowledge of military technology and the
Mideast arms balance would make, such a statement," Arens
declared.
NEW YORK (JTA) The
dramatic story of how an
isolated European Jewish com-
munity, without a rabbi for
more than 20 years, bounced
back from the Holocaust with
the aid of the Memorial Foun-
dation for Jewish Culture and
the local community, came to
light recently, according to a
report by the Foundation.
From 1958 to I960, Oslo,
Norway, functioned without a
rabbi. It fell upon Michael
Melchior. the eldest son of a
Danish family counting six
generations of rabbis, to rekin-
dle Jewish life in one of world
Jewry's loneliest outposts.
There are some 900 Jews in
Norway, almost all of them in
Oslo, of a population of 4.115
million.
Trained in Israel with the
help of the Foundation and the
Oslo community, Rabbi
Melchior opened the first
kindergarten in Oslo since the
Holocaust and revitalized the
afternoon schools, which teach
children from ages 7 through
13. In 1979, there were 39
children receiving religious in-
struction at the Jewish Com-
munity Center in Oslo. The
number for 1985 is 68.
Melchior has reactivated the
youth groups. Teenagers study
Jewish history, Zionism and
religious texts. More than 80
percent of all Jewish youth are
now being reached.
Herman Kahan, vice presi-
dent of the Oslo Jewish Com-
munity, describes one way in
which Melchior works with
children:
"Expectant faces wait every
Friday for the weekly ap-
pearance of 'Michael,' as they
call him. One week, he appears
as a pirate; the next, an expec-
tant mother. His imaginative
disguises inspire the children
to listen to his words and ap-
preciate Shabbat as something
very special." And special it is
for the children who bake
challah, say kiddush and light
the Shabbat candles every
week. Basic elements of
Hebrew are taught in the
Jewish kindergarten; and
every 17th of May, the
Norwegian national holiday,
the children march under their
own banner in a children's
parade.
Through the children's choir
that Melchior initiated, he has
also brought new life and in-
creased attendance at the
synagogue, bringing into the
synagogue's orbit much of the
community's youth and many
young couples as well.
Adult education has also
been a focus of Melchior. A
large number of workshops
have been organized under his
leadership with study groups
in Pirkey Avot, Jewish
thought, and Jewish holidays.
Melchior's wife, Hannah, has
taught classes for potential
converts.
Melchior was instrumental
in establishing the Kosher
Food Center, a grocery which
*t the time of its opening in
November 1981 had the
largest selection of kosher
foods in Europe Since 1982,
the Center has provided food
amounting to $."0,000 each
year to the Jews in Poland.
This enterprise has come
about thanks to an agreement
with Norway's Church Relief
Society (Kirkensnodhjelp).
ty, Melchior interprets
Judaism and the Jewish com-
munity to the Christian com-
munity through regular con-
tacts with churches, univer-
sities, schools and service
groups.
One of Melchior'i greatest
achievements is the creation of
the Norwegian Council of
Soviet Jewry, in which he
serves as co-chairman with
Christopher Gjoterrud, Pro-
fessor of Physics at the
University of Oslo. The Coun-
cil has been very successful in
raising the issue of Soviet
Jewry at the highest level of
government in Norway.
At the end of this year,
Melchior will make aliya. The
Oslo Jewish leaders have come
up with a plan which will J
put into action next yea?

receive a salary which covj
his year's expenses. C

The help that the Memory!

has provided Melchior is in J
with the emphasis the FouaJ
tion is placing on service to
dispersed Jewish communitia
communities that m\

I MIRIAM BAT-DAVID
(unhnuedfrom last week)
boarded our van. What, I
iered. was next on our
c?
headed west to U.S. 441. As
ssed the West Boca Com-
Hospital, still under con-
Ion, our guide pointed to a
of land just north of the
al. "There," she stated,
he 23 acres which have been
*d to our Federation .
keep this area in mind, we
will talk about our planned cam-
pus here later in the day."
We continued north to the
Delray Community Hospital,
where we were greeted by Rabbi
Joseph Pollack, who was waiting
for us in the lobby. Rabbi Pollack
was introduced as the Director of
the Federation's Chaplaincy pro-
gram. I wondered why Federation
would require a rabbi on its staff.
Federations are not religious
institutions!
The rabbi led us to a meeting
room in the hospital. He painted
this general scenario: Over 80 per-
cent of the Jewish population in
our community is not affiliated
with any synagogue or temple.
(Incidentally, this is also a na-
tional statistic.) When an unaf-
filiated Jew requires hospitaliza-
tion or nursing-home care, he or
she should have spiritual guidance
available, and that is the function
of the Federation Chaplaincy Ser-
vice. Since this agency services all
of our community hospitals and
nursing homes, Rabbi Pollack
trains volunteers in the para-
teli Cabinet Adopts Economic Measures
chaplaincy division.
We viewed about 10 minutes of
excerpts of video tapes produced
by Rabbi Pollack, with the
assistance of the Rabbinical
Association, of Holy Day services
which are played on closed-circuit
television in the various institu-
tions on the appropriate Holy
Day. Shabbat services are held by
the rabbi and by volunteers at the
various hospitals and homes week-
ly, on Friday afternoons.
I had an instant flashback of my
husband in intensive care for
three weeks, many years ago, and
the rabbi from our Temple sitting
with me for hours. How I depend-
ed on his visits and comforting .
The rabbi spoke of the many
retirees, whose families do not
live in Florida, who when
hospitalized feel completely
isolated. The Chaplaincy Service
not only offers spiritual guidance,
but by working with the Family
Service is able to offer continued
follow-up care.
Visiting the sick is really a mitz-
vah. Perhaps, I thought, / will
volunteer for the para-chaplaincy
course.
ilJSALEM At a dramatic
. the Cabinet adopted a

Their Cabinet adopted the
austerity plan mainly because of
the heavy pressure exerted by
Premier Shimon Peres. Seven
Likud Ministers voted against,
most outspoken among them
Deputy Premier David Levy who
charged that the new measures
would only speed up inflation.
Vice Premier Yizhak Shamir
supported the plan, but Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin abstain-
ed, saying the defense budget
could not be trimmed any more.
At the end of the marathon ses-
sion, Premier Shimon Peres urged
the public to lend a shoulder and
help overcome the economic
crisis. He admitted that for the
next three months the burden on
the public would be heavy but
predicted that there were good
prospects that afterwards infla-
tion would go down.
Had we not adopted these
measures, Peres said, the
economy might have deteriorated
and there would have been no
chance to get out of the infla-
tionary spiral.

Page 4 The Jewish Floridian of South County/Friday, October 11, 1985
DATELINE: ISRAEL
By FERN ALLEN
(Special to The Jewish
Floridian of South County)
One day, while walking in the
woods near his small German
town, Gunner Lehman stumbled
upon a Jewish cemetery. The un-
familiar Hebrew inscriptions on
the tombstones sparked the young
German's curiosity about the
Jews. But when he probed several
adults from his town near Ham-
burg, he was taken aback by their
responses.
"When I asked them 'What is a
Jew?' they didn't answer that a
Jew is a religious group or a com-
munity that lived here and was
destroyed during the Holocaust.
Instead, they answered, 'I'm not
guilty; we didn't know
anything,' recalled the 29-year-
old Lehman.
The guilt, secrecy and defensive
attitude pervasive among Ger-
mans who lived during the Nazi
reign have not deterred the
generation that grew up after
World War II from its own form
of soulsearching. Increasingly.
young Germans like Lehman feel
responsible for- Germany's
heinous war crimes and want to
make amends to those who suf-
fered under Hitler's regime.
Members of the Action for
Reconciliation and Services for
I'race organization are among
those most active in atoning for
the sins perpetrated 40 years ago
by Germany. Participants spend a
year and-a-half in Israel or coun-
tries such as Holland, Belgium
and Franee, which also suffered
from Germany's war atrocities.
Groups are taken to Auschwitz
for 10 days as part of the pro-
gram. In the notorious concentra-
tion camp they are shown the ex-
tent to which Germany turned the
murder of Jews into a complex
and calculated industry. As they
walk through the gas chambers
and crude barracks the German
youths are able to better visualize
Germany's brutality toward the
Jews.
When Action for Reconciliation
first began in the early IMO's,
young Germans came to Israel
eager to work in any area of the
country where they were needed.
The volunteers, who ranged in age
from their late teens to mid-20's,
ambitiously did construction work
and general menial jobs
The program is now more BOCafJ-
service oriented, and volunteers
work with the elderly or handicap-
ped. Many prefer to work in Yad
Vaahem, Israel's memorial to the
Six Million, where they research
various Jewish communities in
I termany which were annihilated
during World War II. Lehman, for
instance, is working on a
"memory book" which details the
various Jewish communities in the
German state of Hessen.
Lehman noted that the time the
volunteers currently there are
34 spend in Israel affords them
an opportunity to talk with
Holocaust survivors and hear
first-hand accounts of what hap-
pened to European Jewry. "It's
important for us to see how they
suffered, and it's important for
them to see that we are interested
in their history. It helps them see
that Germany has changed."
Lehman said in an interview at
the organization's Jerusalem
office.
For many young Germans, this
is the first time they have had per-
sonal ties with Jews, since the
Jewish population in Germany is
so small. Presently, there are only
30,000 Jews in Germany, out of a
population of 60 million.
Interest in the Holocaust surged
among German youth during the
late 60's, when Nazi history began
playing an important part of the
student rebellion in the country.
"Students at that time wanted
more morality in German society.
Their parents were pretenders
who were interested in money and
who didn't think of responsibility.
It was like a pendulum. There was
a split between the generations on
moral issues." Lehman said.
As the younger generation
began questioning their parents
and grandparents who par
ticipated in World War II. they
l>ecame increasingly disappointed
in the evative answers they
received.
"People who were in the S.S.
avoided talking ai>out it. or they
claimed there really weren't six
million Jews who were killed.
Most didn't confess any guilt."
noted Lehman, whose uncle was
in the S.S. and was killed by the
Russians at the end of the war.
"Those who do feel guilty say:
'But I didn't do these things.'
Some people say they didn't
believe what was happening and
felt that the whole thing was pro-
paganda. They explain that
although there were bad things
going on at that time, there were
also good things that the Nazis
acomplished, such as getting the
unemployed off the streets,"
Lehman said.
"The generation that is
educating today's German youth
was involved in the Holocaust.
They feel guilty and don't want to
talk about it. They want to forget
it. The teachers haven't found
their own relationship to it. As a
result, they only teach the facts.
"There are a lot of facts that
you can get from books and pic-
tures. But what is missing is con-
cern
mans are trying to get
what really happened, but it's
hard," Lehman said.
Many young Germans still en-
counter anti-Jewish sentiment in
their own homes. When 26-year-
old Thomas Kramer started to
grow a long beard and don wire
glasses, his father looked at him
disapprovingly and said, "Now
you look like a Jew."
"He didn't even think about
what he was saying," Kramer
recalled. "It's always been hard
for me to live in Germany. If I
went around Mannheim and asked
doors at me. | h

prayers distributed to Jewish pa-

wife), are part of the Para-
Chaplaincy program of the South
County Jewish Federation,
assigned to various nursing homes
and hospitals. Our particular
assignment is the Delray Hospital.
We are happy to uphold the
time-honored Jewish tradition of
visiting the sick, and to bring the
comforts of Judaism to those who
are afflicted in body and spirit.
Our Rabbi Pollack has endowed
us with a feeling of pastoral care
in responding to the patients' per-
sonal agenda, since December,
1984. We have visited hundreds of
patients who had various illnesses
and incapacitations such as car
diac strokes, amputations, cancer
and numerous other afflictions.
After the initial "baptism of
lire" of the actual visiting of pa-
tients, we have learned to be good
listeners, better Jews, better per-
sons, and got a feeling of doing
good for one's fellow man. This is
a result of these experiences.
Many of our Jewish patients,
especially those who are unaf-
filiated with a synagogue, feel lost

with when the school board
draws up its calendar for
the year.
Vet. incredible as it may sound,
there are Jewish students who
bee serious hassles in the county
school system for being absent on
Jewish Holy Days. After years of
mild "negotiations" by some
Jewish representatives, this year
the school calendar accom-
modated the first day of Rosh
Hashana and Yom Kipnur by clos-
ing schools for administrative
reasons; and marked the second
day of Rosh Hashana and the first
day of Succoth as valid for
religious absences. This meant,
among other things, that no tests
were to be held by the teachers on
those days.
Not only were the second day of
Succoth and the last two days
(Shemini Atzeret and Simhat
Torah) ignored but the informa-
tion evidently was not transmit
ted down the line to the teachers,
some of whom gave their students
quizzes and tests on the second
day of Rosh Hashana. the first
and second day of Succoth; and in
some cases, gave students who
were absent a difficult time.
The same story will inevitably
repeal itself in April, amen
Passover occurs, since the Vamim
Tovim (the Holy festival days) fall
in mitl-week this year
The M-hool authorities are not
entirely to blame for gtvn
rough time to the few Je
student, who rlsh to oh;
by not going to
school. In the first place, too many
of the Jewish students, including
children from traditional homes,
just go ahead and attend school
without a second thought to the
holydays. They thus leave the tiny
minority who care enough in a
tenuous position and the school
authorities' argument is simply:
"it must be a minor holiday, even
Rabbi so-and-so's son or daughter
came to school without a
squawk ."
Even worse, many of the
leaders, lay and spiritual, do a
disservice to the Jewish communi-
ty by "negotiating" on the basis 14
two weak premises: a) They take
the approach that one must not
confront the school authorities on
such issues, but must try to
achieve a little at a time, b) That
"little at a time" is adequate if it
reflects the religious views of
those doing the negotiating (viz.
Reform and liberal-
Conservative views, since these
represent the bulk of the Jews in
the community .). Thus, it
becomes possible for a gentile
school board official (or teacher)
to say: "Rosh Hashana is only one
day;" or: "Succoth is a minor
holiday."
It is in such instances, in our opi-
nion, that even the most liberal
rabbi, and all non-religious Jews
in the community, must react as
though they believe like the most
traditional Orthodox Jew in
order to protect the right of the
traditional minority and present a
united front, with the weight of
the entire community behind
them. The time to act is now let
no Jewish student be hassled by
any teacher or school official next,
in fact, the goal should be-
that staying away from school on.

World Body Conducts Work With Modesty
By BORIS SMOLAR
') Seventh Avenue in New
ork, on the 16th floor, there is an
itution helping victims of Nazi
f-rxcution with legal aid to pro-
jre restitution and indemnifica-
lon from the West German
Jovernment for sufferings in-
Ijcted hy the Nazi regime.
The name of this institution is
Inited Restitution Organization
JRO). It acts as the legal aid arm
the Conference on Jewish
lateral Claims Against Germany
. a world body composed of 23 of
tie most important Jewish
rganizations in the world. It is
eing directed by a brilliant
roman-lawyer, Dr. Edith
osmar-Kosterlitz, herself a vic-
of the Nazi regime.
| It conducts its work efficiently
pd with great modesty. It pays
i attention to publicity. Its name
l in fact very little known to the
erage American Jew. One
kldom reads about it in the press,
pspite the fact that it has helped
any thousands of Nazi victims to
ceive millions of dollars in
urns against Germany during its
listence since 1948, and is still
tively engaged in this mission.
[THE CLAIMS Conference, to
tiich the URO is linked, was
inized following negotiations
Dr. Nahum Goldman, the late
>rld Jewish leader, with
bancellor Konrad Adenauer of
German Federal Republic.
|>est negotiations led to the sign-
of two sets of agreements
le, between the governments of
|est Germany and Israel, signed
Israel's Foreign Minister
>she Sharett and by Adenauer,
^d the other, between the West
nan government and the
'''inference. The Claims
lerence sought to attain two
ectivesr
r 'ibtain funds from the
)nn government for the relief,
habitation and resettlement of
Iwish victims of Nazi persecu-
ft-. and to aid in rebuilding
*ish communities and institu-
^ns devastated by the Nazi
ime in Germany and in Nazi-
Hd countries.
I" To gain indemnification for in-
ries inflicted upon individual vic-
U of Nazi persecution, and
Btitution for properties con-
cated by the Nazis.
rhe agreement between the
[est German government and
Claims Conference provided
enactment of laws that would
ipensate Nazi victims directly
indemnification and restitu-
^n claims arising from Nazi
rsecution.
NDER THIS agreement, the
[est German government under-
lie also to pay directly to the
Mms Conference the sum of
),00O,OOO German Marks -
ut $110,000,000 for relief,
ettlement and rehabilitation of
|n. A substantial proportion of
sum was allocated by the
lims Conference for the
Construction of Jewish com-
nities and their institutions
Kroyed by the Nazis. Some 480
pital projects were undertaken
I 29 countries with Conference
I. With the allocations from the
inference and funds from the
pnt Distribution Committee the
ittered Jewish communities
p* gradually brought back to
Hial life.
P>e West German government
p out through December 31,
3 more than 66 billion German
fks currently about $23
P?n in benefits to victims of
persecution. This sum is ex-
fswe of the 3 billion Marks paid
the government of Israel in
* and services and to the
& million paid directly to the
Mms Conference.
Fhe Claims Conference
Pmates that 63 billion Marks
M paid out to Jewish victims of
Nazi persecution throughout the
world until now. The German
Finance Ministry estimates that
bet wen now and the end of this
century it will still pay out another
16 billion Marks in benefits on the
basis of the existing laws which
were enacted as the result of the
agreements between the Claims
Conference and the German
Federal Republic.
HUNDREDS OF "thousands of
Jewish Nazi victims throughout
the world continue to look to the
Claims Conference for the protec-
tion of their interests under the
Indemnification Laws. Close to
100,000 in Israel are today receiv-
ing annuities from the German
government, and 100,000 more in
other countries. Victims receiving
indemnification and annuities in-
clude also Jews from countries
that were occupied by the Nazis
claimants who could not file
claims before they emigrated
from these countries.
They include those from the
Soviet Union, the Baltic countries,
the part of Poland in the Lemberg
region which was first occupied by
the Nazis and later annexed by the
Soviet Union as part of the
Ukraine.
The large number of Jewish in-
dividuals who received compensa-
tion from the German govern-
ment for sufferings under the
Nazis would have fallen heavy on
the welfare of the Jewish com-
munities in the countries into
which they were admitted. The in-
demnification and annuities which
they received from Germany
under the agreements with the
Claims Conference have helped
them to estalish themselves in
these countries.
More than a half of them have
died with the march of time, but
there are still about 200,000 reci-
pients of pensions alive today.
About 900 million Marks about
$300 million a year continue to
come to Israel to Nazi victims
from the German government as
legal obligation under the
agreements with the Claims
Conference.
THE GERMAN government
has also committed itself to a
Claims Conference Hardship
Fund up to 400 million Marks.
Under German guidelines which
govern the operations, the Fund
limits per capita payments to
5,000 Marks.
As of March this year over
57,600 payments were authorized
from the Fund, including 37,405

guiding conscience
for applicants from Israel and
about 15,000 for applicants from
the United States. The remainder
were authorized for applications
from other countries. The total
number of applications received is
about 70,000 from Israel, more
than 35,000 from the United
States, and about 17,000 from
other countries.
Priority in the processing of the
applications, thus far, was accord-
ed to Jewish Nazi victims who left
Eastern Europe after 1965 and
who were 60 years or older
(women), 65 years or older (men),
or disabled. The Claims Con-
ference completed the processing
of most of the applications falling
within these categories.
Of the 400 million Marks com-
mitted by the West German
government for the Hardship
Fund, 20 million were earmarked
for allocations to organizations
providing shelter to Jewish vic-
tims of Nazi persecution. These
funds were allocated from 1981
through 1985 primarily for homes
for the aged caring for substantial
numbers of elderly survivors. The
allocations were made to 69 in-
stitutions located in Israel,
France, Great Britain, Australia
and a number of Latin American
countries.
THE SCOPE of the indem-
nification and restitution program
under the agreements with the
Claims Conference has reached
great magnitudes in the first 20
years of the existence of the
Claims Conference. Nazi victims
submitted over 4,200,000 claims
under the provisions of just the
first agreement, and 75 percent of
the funds paid went directly to the
claimants who made their homes
in countries other than Germany.
Virtually all were Jews. Some
277,000 have received life-time
annuities. Scores of thosuands of
them were old, or ill, crippled or
otherwise unfit to earn a
livelihood from the effects of Nazi
persecution.
The president of the Claims
Conference during the first
decades of its existence was Dr.
Nahum Goldmann, who succeeded
in bringing about the recognition
by the West German government
of its obligation to pay reparations
to the victims of Nazi persecution.
Senior vice president was Jacob
Blaustein, the prominent
American Jewish leader and late
president of the American Jewish
Committee.
The president of the Claims
Conference today is Dr. Israel
Miller, the noted Jewish leader
who distinguished himself when
he served as president of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
Jewish Organizations which coor-
dinates the activities of 37 major
Jewish groups in the United
