Prof. Yoram Dinstein, an
expert on international law
and pro-rector of Tel Aviv
University, brought this
point home recently to a
group of TAU Seminar
Associates in Boca Raton.
Although a strong propo-
nent of peace efforts and a
supporter of the Labor Par-
ty, Prof. Dinstein said he
was not optimistic he was
afraid "perish the
thought" that the state of
war between Israel and her
Arab neighbors, which
already has broken the
record of the "Thirty Years
War," will also break that of

the Germans and held as a
prisoner of war. He denied aiding
the Nazis.
ISRAEL HAS sought extradi-
tion from the United States of war
criminals living in the U.S. under
the terms of a U.S.-Israel extradi-
tion treaty signed in 1963. Under
Israeli law, Demjanjuk could be
executed if convicted of war
Should the alleged war criminal
face a trial in Israel, it would be
the first such trial there of a
former Nazi since Adolf
Eichmann was tried and executed
in 1961 for his war crimes.
Demjanjuk, who resides in
Seven Hills, Ohio, came to the
U.S. in 1952 and was stripped of
his citizenship in 1981 when it was
determined that he had lied on his
immigration papers to conceal his
wartime activities. In 1984, he
was ordered deported by the U.S.
Immigration Court, and the
Justice Department moved to
send him to the Soviet Union, a
decision under appeal.
LOS ANGELES-based Simon
Wiesenthal Center has hailed the
court's ruling, and said it was cer-
tain that "unlike the victims of the
Nazi terror, Demjanjuk's rights
like Adolf Eichmann before him
will be assured by Israel's
democratic system of justice."
"This represents a significant
step in the long process of making
a man who operated the gas
chambers at Treblinka, one of
Nazi Germany's largest death
camps, finally stand before the
bar of justice," said Rabbi Marvin
Hier, dean of the Wiesenthal

South County will assemble in
downtown Boca Raton on Tuesday even-

human rights at the same time that
President Reagan is scheduled to meet
with Soviet leader Gorbachev in Geneva
for their Summit.
"There are no better issues than these,
and no better time, for the faith communi-
ty to stand united," said Rabbi Richard
Agler of Cong. B'nai Israel of Boca
Raton, organizer of the event. "The spec-
tre of nuclear war haunts all humanity,
and the gentiles should join the Jews in
demanding Soviet adherence to human
rights principles."
Rabbi Agler, an expert on the plight of
Soviet Jews and refuseniks, pointed out
that many Christians also suffer persecu-
tion at the hands of the Soviet govern-
ment. "If the non-Jewish public showed
more concern in the past, a great deal
more progress would have been made in
the struggle for human rights in the
The candlelight vigil and prayer gather-
ing will be held from 8 to 9 p.m. at the
Sanborn Square Park on North Federal
Highway in Boca Raton. At the time of
writing, five churches and three area
synagogues had joined the list of sponsors
of the event, witn many more expected to
follow suit. Rabbis, pastors and ministers
all issued statements indicating their con-
cern for both the need to ensure world
peace and to protect the human rights of
Christians and Jews alike living in the
Soviet Union. They have urged their con-
gregants and all the citizenry in South
County to come to the gathering and
register their concern as well.

Prime Minister Peres disclosed
that in his talks with President
Reagan the problem of worldwide
terrorism was discussed in detail.
Peres said he thanked the Praai
dent for the U.S. capture of the
four terrorists responsible for the
death of Leon Klinghoffer <>n the
hijacked ship "Achille Lauro."
"No murderer in our time
should be able to get away with
murder." the Prime Minister
asserted "He should be chased,
captured and punished, so that the
lives of innocent people will not be
in danger. Terror is an ugh
danger and a cruel one. When the
body of a murdered Jewish per-
son. Leon Klinghoffer. emerged,
the truth about the cruelty that
accompanies terror was brought
to light before the world.
"Tracking down the terrorists
responsible for this murder was
the strongest act that I can think
of to stop the killing of innocent
He continued: "Violence and
terror are the greatest obstacles
on the road to peace. They should
be removed to enable countries
and leaders who are looking for
peace to move forward toward
this process, without fear of being
terrorized by extreme organiza-
tions or people."
Peres said he informed Presi-
dent Reagan that the austerity
measures instituted by Israel's
unity government, including a 20
percent cut in wages, are work-
ing. He cited a reduction in infla-
tion, curbs on government and
personal spending, and an in-
crease in exports which are im-

Shultz Rules Out PLO Role
While Violence Continues
Rabbi Dr. Louis L. Sacks
unless we change ourselves, the
world will not change, and cer-
tainly the Jewish world will not
change. That is why an ancient
sage prayed wisely when he
sagaciously articulated "Lord,
help me to change and make this a
better world and may I
courageously begin with myself."
His sentiments were echoed by a
perceptive poet who put this
salient truth in these words:
"Your task ... to build a better
world," G-d said,
I answered, "How .?
This world is such a large vast
So complicated now,
And I so small and useless am,
There is nothing I can do."
But G-d in all his wisdom said,
"Just build a better you."
- Secretary of State
George Shultz, ruled out
again the participation of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization in Middle East
peace negotiations as long
as it continues to commit
acts of violence against
"The PLO has been involved in
recent weeks in act* of terror and
violence," Shultz said at a press
conference. "I don't see how
those who are perpetrating terror
and violence against one of the
parties deserve a place at the
peace table."
Shultz said that those who
should be participants in the
negotiations should be "ready to
sit down with Israel and try to
work out" a peaceful solution bas-
ed on United Nations Security
Council Resolutions 242 and 338.
SHULTZ SAID he expected the
Middle East to be discussed at the
summit conference in Geneva bet-
ween President Reagan and
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev,
although he did not know how
much time will be devoted to it.
He said that the U.S. would stress
"the way to go in the Middle East
is not a big conference but direct
negotiations between Israel and
Israel's neighbors."
He noted that attempt* are now
being made to find a way to define
the "appropriate international
auspices*' that King Hussein of
Jordan requires. But Shultz added
that "the name of the game is
direct negotiations, that's what
we are seeking."
Shultz stressed that human
rights will be emphasized in
Geneva. "We insist that the
Helsinki accords and other inter-
national commitments be observ-
ed," he
Hillel Forming At
College Of Boca Raton
The College of Boca Raton has
been added to the list of college
campuses that has a Jewish stu-
dent group, and is staffed by B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation.
Jennifer Fischer, the program
coordinator for the Palm Beach
County B'nai B'rith Hillel Foun-
dation, has started the College of
Boca Raton Hillel group as a
grassroots program. She assesses
that out of an enrollment of 800
students, at least 10 percent are
Jewish. So far, Fischer has over
50 students on the mailing list and
is forming an exciting new group
on campus.
"The Jewish students at CBR
want to feel a part of the South
County Jewish community." says
Fischer, "and Hillel will offer
them that sense of belonging.''
B'nai B'rith Hillel offers students
an opportunity to learn more
about themselves Jewishly
through a variety of programs
such as social, educational,
cultural, and religious events.
Hillel is open to all college
students and college-age adults in
the Broward/Palm Beach area.

Applause Merited
For Great Strides
It is good to hear that Pope John Paul II
has reaffirmed his position before a meeting
of Catholic and Jewish leaders in the
Vatican that the Church must work toward
a closer relationship with the Jews. And that
Catholics must come to spread the word that
the Jews are not an anomaly to be tolerated
now that they are at least theoretically ex-
onerated from the hateful charge of deicide
against them.
More to the point, Judaism must come to
be regarded as a religion with ancient roots
needing respect from Catholics based on the
relationship between one institution (the
New) and its institutional parents (the Old).
This is a long way away from the medieval
view of Jews and Judaism as the despised
people and their despised faith despised
because they refused to abandon their
spiritual beliefs and accept those of another.
'Nostra Aetate': The Core
It all started on October 28, 1965 when
some 2,200 Cardinals and Bishops
throughout the world adopted by an almost
unanimous vote the Vatican Declaration on
Non-Christians called Nostre Aetate.
That declaration, as Rabbi Marc H. Tanen-
baum has since pointed out, after 2,000
years of Catholic Church history never
known for its gentler preachments when it
came to the Jews, repudiated anti-Semitism
and affirmed the common spiritual bonds
that link Christianity to Judaism.
The latest meeting between Pope John
Paul II and some 50 Catholic and Jewish
leaders in the Vatican occurred exactly 20
years later last Oct. 28. Just to see how
far the impact of Nostre Aetate of 1965 had
come, the Vatican meeting a few weeks ago
was the scene, among other exciting things,
of statements by Jewish spokesmen in which
they took exception to the Vatican Notes
prepared and issued last June by the Vatican
Secretariat for Catholic educators.
The Pope Listened
What Jewish leaders told the Pople was
that the Notes were a backward step from
Nostre Aetate because they failed to treat
the Nazi Holocaust and, indeed, the rebirth
of the State of Israel, as significant
historical occurrences in our time in which
Jews played a central and spiritually mean-
ingful role.
More to the point, the Pope listened.
This does not mean that the Church will
diplomatically recognize the State of Israel
tomorrow or even alter its view on the need
for Jerusalem to be returned to the status of
an international city.
But the fact is and it is a fact meriting
applause that the Church is making
revolutionary strides in accommodating its
theological principles to newer Nostre
Aetate views in which Jews are ultimately
expected to be seen no longer as the enemy
but as spiritual friends in the celebration of

civil rights (although the Knesset
has tried to do so and has failed).
One of the problems in dealing
with Kahane is that Israel has no
constitution. It is one of only two
democratic countries not to have
one the other being Great Bri-
tain and, indeed, Israeli law is
largely based on the English law,
since Britain ruled over pre-1948
Palestine under mandate from the
League of Nations. Not having a
constitution, Israel must deal with
basic issues (like outlawing parties
such as Kahane's) under the test
of the Supreme Court.
Israel had attempted to author a
constitution. Dinstein added, but
could not do so because of irrecon-
cilable differences between the
secular and religious parties
the attempt failed in working on
the preamble, when the parties
stumbled or or not it must begin with the words
"Beerzat Hashem" (With G-d's
help). So, instead, the Knesset
has been deinsing "chapters" of
what would add up eventually to a
constitution, dealing with broad
areas as the need has arisen.
While Israel is attempting to
deal with the Kahane problem, it
is generally agreed that Kahane's
"solution" is no solution at all.
But the annexation idea might
seem more plausible and has to be
dealt with, Dinstein said. For the
past 18 years, Israel has held the
West Bank and Gaza under
military occupation, applying the
Jordanian law to the residents (as
is required under international
This has caused Israel a serious
dilemma: under international con-
ventions (as well as Jordanian
law), capital punishment is per-
missible; but Israel has no death
penalty (with the exception of
genocide Adolph Eichmann was
the only one ever executed, under
this law). So that when terrorists
are apprehended after committing
their murder, Israel could execute
them, after due process, under in-
ternational law, as the occupying
force. On the other hand, the same
international conventions forbid
the occupying force to destroy
property (except that destroyed in
the course of combat).
Israel, however, had adopted
the practice of demolishing the
houses of terrorists, after
evacuating the homes of their
residents. This is against the in-
ternational law, Dinstein said, but
when faced with the choice bet-
ween the value of human life and
that of property protection, Israel
has chosen to give priority to
human life.
("As an international lawyer, I
have to say that choosing not to
exercise the permitted death
penalty still does not give the
right to violate the law on destruc-
tion of property.")
Israel's legal minds, however,
came up with another solution: in-
stead of demolishing the houses,
the military authorities simply
brick them up so they cannot be
used. This serves an additional
purpose the former residents
continue to see their home and
long to get back into it (the home,
in the Arabs' culture, is something
with a very deep attachment). So
that in many cases, after several
months, the families involved turn
to the military government with a
promise that none of their
members will further engage in
terrorist activities, and obtain
permission to return to their
Dinstein denied that everyone is
so busy condemning Kahane as a
racist, that they are failing to deal
with the substance of the issues he
raises. The "demographic threat"
raised by Kahane is not as simple
as it sounds, he said. The number
of Arabs in the West Bank, for ex-
ample, has not grown since 1967
in fact it has declined by a
percentage point or two, despite
their higher birth rate. True, he
conceded, this is due largely to
emigration which might be tem-
porary in nature, and those who
left to work in other Arab coun-
tries still are legally residents of
the West Bank and may wish to
return. But as the economic situa-
tion improves there and it has
improved, along with education
and living standards, tenfold in
the last 18 years the birth rate
has also declined considerably.
The issue of population growth
is merely another strong argu-
ment aginst annexation of the
areas and the resulting addition of
1.2 million Arabs to Israel's
population, Dinstein said.
Presumably, even though the
Jews would still constitute a two-
to-one majority, the Arabs (1.2
million from the annexed areas
and 600,000 living in Israel) would
coalesce and form the largest
single political party, holding the
halance-of-power and, among
other things, repealing the Law of
Return which is a basic tenet of
the Jewish State. Given Israel's
character, it seems highly unlikely
that its Jewish majority would
also coalesce there will always
be a leftwing party, a rightwing
party and a religious party ..
It is an irony of history that
before the State of Israel was
established, Ben-Gurion took the
stand that partition was accep-
table, so that Israel would be a
small territory with a Jewish ma-
jority, while there were two other
viewpoints, to his right and to his
left: the Herut (Revisionists) view
which said the Jews have to get all
of Palestine, and the leftist view-
point (MAPAM) which called for a

Sassoon will not hesitat-

anti-Semitic slur As a Jewish
teenager growing up in post-
World War II England, he and
Jewish ex-servicemen would often
break up facist meetings.
"There was a riot at every
faadst meeting. I was just a young
lad who joined the group." he
said. "Everyone I knew ended up
in jail at one point or another. The
fascists' hate was not an easy
thing to intellectualize. We had to
deal with it in a direct manner.
"When I was in my mid-

subtle and not like the violent
anti-Semitism after the war. To-
day it takes the form of anti-
Zionism." he said.
Sassoon has been an ardent sup-
porter of Israel since his youth.
He was inspired by Zionist leaders
from Palestine who visited Lon-
don. When he was 20. he
volunteered to join a kibbutz in
Palestine. When the War of In-
dependence broke out Sassoon
served in a Haganah unit that
fought the Egyptians in Gaza.

Soon after the war, Sassoon
received a telegram from his
mother in England notifying him
that his father, a tailor's assistant,
had a heart attack.
"I decided that I had to go back
to England and make a living for
the family as a hairstylist. I had
worked my way up from shampoo-
boy to an apprentice for a hair
stvlist when I was 14." he said.

Sassoon views Christian fun-

Jewish people. He says they want

publically said that "God doesn't

Seibel. "We always have been One
People, and we continue to be one
people only with the world get-
ting smaller all the time we can af-
ford less and less to ignore the
needs of poor, elderly, children's
education locally and in Israel,
and the plight of disenfranchised
Jews elsewhere in the world."
Therefore, there is no excuse for
not being a part of the Campaign,
he points out.
Last year's campaign, under the
leadership of Hy Henkin, was the
most successful to date in Century
Village, Seibel agrees. Indeed, he
would like to see everyone both
the volunteers and their friends
and neighbors, come to the Ad-
ministration Building this Sunday
at 1 p.nx.'to honor ail the peoph?
who made it a success. At the
same time, he points out, there
are still far too many people who
are not involved, and they should
be by giving of their time as
well as opening their checkbook.
However, this will come later.
The event on Sunday will not in-
volve any solicitation of funds.

The meeting, sponsored by the

not only to hear, they also take

and provide input.
"We want a very large number

said Kune.
South County will have a large
contingent at the National Young
Leadership Conference in
Washington, according to Jeff
Kune. chairman of the Missions
and Conferences committee of the
Young Leadership Division.
The conference, to be held
March 2-4. 1986. will l>e addressed
by some of the most notable
figures in the I'.S. and Israel. Two
.ears ago President Reagan ad-
dressed the conference, and there
is a strong possibility he may do so
again this year. Legislators and
major American political figures,
as well as top figures of the
American Jewish scene will
definitely take part.
To date, although it was just an-
nounced, more than 10 persons
have already indicated they will be
attending the conference. "Our
goal this year is to put the newly
established Young Leadership
Division on the map by taking a
large contingent from South

Canadian Jewish Congress Urges
Adolf Hitler Shirts Be Sidelined
TORONTO (JTA) The Canadian Jewish Congress
has urged local retailers to stop selling T-shirts emblazoned
with the words, "Adolf Hitler European Tour 1939-45," a
list of countries and dates they were invaded by Nazi Ger-
many in World War II, and a picture of Hitler sporting a
swastika and doing the Nazi salute over a European map.
MANUEL PRUTSCHI, the CJC director of communi-
ty relations, said the T-Shirts is on sale at several stores in
the downtown shopping area. One of them, the Toronto
Bargain Centre on Vonge Street, took the shirts off the
market after a CJC official asked them to, said Prutschi,
and the CJC appreciated the store's immediate
The T-shirt resembles those designed to mark the tours
of popular rock stars. Prutschi said most people who sell

with that religious community
(Judaism) alone."
Contrary to some ambiguous
language in the recently-published
Vatican "Notes," he affirmed the
permanent validity of Judaism
asserting that "God does not re-
ject his people." Instead, he pro-
posed that the Vatican Notes "will
greatly help towards freeing our
catechetical and religious
teaching of a negative or inac-
curate presentation of Jews and
Judaism" and will "help to pro-
mote respect, appreciation and in-
deed love for one and the other."
He urged that "anti-Semitism
in its ugly and sometimes violent
manifestations should be com
pletely eradicated. Better still, a
positive view of each of our
rditfions. with due respect of the
identity of each, will surely
emerge, as is already the case in
so many places."
In apparent response to the
criticism that the Vatican Notes,
issued on June 24, were inade-
quate in their treatment of the
Nazi Holocaust, the Pope called on
"Catholics ... to fathom the dep-
ths of the extermination of many
million Jews during the Second
World war and the wounds
thereby inflicted on the con-
sciousness of the Jewish people."
He also added that Christians
needed "theological reflection" on
the meaning of the Holocaust for
of Great Neck, NY., chairman of
the International Jewish Commit-
tee on Interreligious Consulta-
tions (IJCIC), in his opening state-
ment to the Pope, asserted that
Nostra Aetate, the Vatican
Declaration on Catholic-Jewish
Relations, "marked a turning
away from eighteen centuries
often characterized by both
misunderstanding and persecu-
tion, toward a dialogue" that has
fostered "mutual understanding
and respect."
Speaking in behalf of IJCIC's
member agencies, Waxman
underscored that, after the
Holocaust, "the creation of the
State of Israel restored us (the
Jewish people) as a factor in
history." and religiously and
spiritually as well. He then told
the Pope, "The Covenant with the
Land (of Israel) established by the
God of Abraham and his descen-
dants endures, even as the cove-
nant of the Torah abides "
In direct response to Jewish
concern over the ambiguous treat-
ment of Israel in the Vatican
Notes, Johannes Cardinal
Willebrands, president of the
Vatican Secretariat on Religious
Relations with Jews, declared at
the opening working session:
"It will be recognized on two
points that may have seemed in-
sufficient to some, that for the
first time, the Catholic Church, at
the highest level, has told its
catechists, its preachers and its
teachers, to consider the religious
link of the Jewish people with the
land of their fathers as well as the
existence of the state of Israel in
the context of international law,
and to try to understand the
meaning of the Shoah, the

Catholic-Jewish understanding
during the past two decades,
Willebrands said that given the
Church'8 clear stand against anti-
Semitism, "it becomes every day
more difficult to have it (anti-
Semitism) linked with official, ap-
proved Catholic teaching.
"It may draw from other
sources, secular or pseudo-
religious and this we have to
assess carefully. But we all agree
that it is another problem. And as
we in the Catholic Church have a
long experience of anti-Catholism,
coming from many sources, we
can perhaps use this experience,
as it has been done in certain
places like the U.S.A., to counter
the anti-Semitic plague."
Prior to this meeting, there was
much speculation growing out of
the controversy over the Vatican
Notes as to whether the Vatican
was "regressing" in its com-
mitments to improved Catholic-
Jewish relations. Cardinal
Willebrands, who as an aide to the
late Cardinal Bea played a key
role in the drafting of Nostra
Aetate nailed the speculation on
the head.
"THE GODHEAD is behind
the text of Nostra Aetate," he
said, and "the changed relation-
ship with Judaism is not a ques-
tion of practical decision, however
noble and high flung our motiva-
tions may be for that. It is for us,
as Catholics, a question of fidelity
to our vocation, a part of our
response to God.
"This is why there could never
be a question of drawing back
from Nostra Aetate. There can on-
ly be a question about going for-
ward, the Dutch Cardinal stated.

William A. Konrad of Boca Raton as he signed th4 pro-
clamationfor "B'nai B'rith Month" in October.
At the close of the three-day
meeting, the Vatican and IJCIC
groups agreed to establish a joint
steering committee to advance
relations between Catholics and
Jews throughout the world, with
particular attention to be given to
the deepening of knowledge and
understanding on the part of
Catholics about the meaning to
them of the Nazi Holocaust and
the relationship of the Jewish peo-
ple to Israel.
Virtually all the Jewish par-
ticipants concluded that this
historic meeting has put the
locomotive of Catholic-Jewish
relations back on the tracks.

To Speed Up Racism Regulation Bills
Knesset Speaker Shlomo
Hillel (Labor) Sunday urged
the Knesset House Commit-
tee to speed up the passage
of regulations that would
forbid introducing racist
Hillel warned that it would be a
black day for the legislature and
the nation if the Knesset allows a
series of "Nuremberg laws writ-
ten in the holy tongue," drafted
by Kach MK Meir Kahane, to be
introduced and thus become "for-
mal Knesset documents."

Tank Crews Are Enjoying
New Protection Against Fire
V & &
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
tank crews enjoy better protec-
tion while manning their weapons
than armored units in any other
country, according to armored
corps commander Brig. Gen.
Amos Katx, in an address to his
men marking the annual Armored
Corps Day.
He descrbed the protection af-
forded IDF tank crews by the
Israeli-made Merkava battle tank
as representing a revolution ip the
history of tank warfare.
The protection, now adopted
from the Merkava experience to
other foreign-made tanks, con-
sists of add-on armor plates fitted
to the turret and front of the vehi
cle which dissipate the blast when
a tank is hit, with the vehicle's
main armor absorbing the rest of
the blast.
If this is not sufficient, a
sophisticated fire-extinguishing
system developed by the IDF and
consisting of special sensors
reacts instanUy to heat if a charge
does penetrate the armor, and im-
mediately extinguishes any fires.
The value of the new measures
was demonstrated during the
Lebanon war when Merkava tank
crews suffered 60 percent less
casualties when hit than men in
other so-far unprotected tanks
nd any injuries sustained were
far less severe. Merkava tank
crews suffered no burn injuries it
was said.
Older American-built M-60 Pat-
ton and British-built Centurions in
II>r service are now being fitted
with the new safety devices.
All the tanks are also being
refitted with improved gunnery
and night-sight systems, and tank
guns are being given a far harder
punch by the introduction of a
newly-designed Arrow 2 armor
piercing shell which can penetrate
the armor of even the new advanc
ed Soviet made T 72 tank now be-
ing introduced into the Syrian
dred Jerusalemites, led by Mayor
Teddy Kollek, and several leading
intellectuals demonstrated out-
side the Knesset against what
they called the Knesset's vacilla-
tion over passing anti-racist
legislation. A government bill
specifically outlawing racism is
currently moving through its com-
mittee stages.
Hillel went public with his ap-
peal to the Knesset committee
following indications that the
committee chairman. Mich*
Reiser of Likud-Herut, had taken
exception to some of the
statements made by members
during the discussion and was
prepared to put the issue on a
back burner.
Kahane's series of bills would
outlaw Arab-Jewish sexual rela-
tions, would legislate separate
beaches for Arabs and Jews,
would bar Arabs from living in
Jeusalem, and would institute
other racist discrimination.
side the Knesset turned raucous
when Kahane himself sought to
wade into the crowd and disrupt a
speech by Kollek. Knesset guards
had to intervene to prevent him
from disrupting the speech.
Kollek said that while there was
awareness nationwide of the
racist danger, and while educa-
tional action had been taken on
various levels, the legislature was
being tardy and remiss in taking
the vital action that was required
on the legal plane.

educator for the past 20 years. A
graduate of Temple University
and Gratz College, she taught and
administered religious schools in
New Jersey and in Florida, and is
currently working with the
religious school of Cong. B'nai
Israel of Boca Raton. (To look at
her. one would never guess that
she is the mother of two teenage
sons, one of whom had attended
the HSI program, and the other
planning to do so next year.) She
is a life member of Hadassah. and
has been active in B'nai B'rith and
in synagogue life.
Barbara had worked with USY
the youth organization of the
Conservative movement and
had led a USY pilgrimage to
Israel one summer. She also
studied at an intensive program
for Jewish educators from abroad
in Jerusalem, at the Hebrew
University. She took over her
position from Linda Krone, who
moved north when her husband's
business relocated.

As the world looks forward with hope to the forthcoming summit
meeting In Geneva between President Ronald Reaaan and General
Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev we, who represent Jewish communities
from the five continents, draw attention to the plight of Soviet Jewry.
The condition of Soviet Jewry has continued to deteriorate. Emigra-
tion has been brought to a virtual standstill. Harassment, arrests and
the Imprisonment of Jews seeking to be reunited with their people in
their historic homeland, Israel, or to study Hebrew, have become
increasingly frequent There has been a dreadful upsurge of anti-
Semitism in the soviet Union.
The world has, therefore, been left in no doubt that the U.S.S.R. is
violating the Helsinki Accords of 1975 and other international
obligations which they have signed and pledged to uphold. The
summit meeting, thus, begins under a cloud. For humanity's prayers
and expectations to be realized, that cloud must be removed.
We continue to believe that an opportunity may exist which could
reverse the state of affairs. The new Soviet leadership can restore
public confidence concerning future agreements. The success of
talks in the Geneva meeting remains In Soviet hands.
We pray for success.

PACs sent over $517,000 to the |
Long-Bentley race. Pro-Israel i
PACs were no slouches when it
came to the campaign: Making up
barely four percent of the PACs in
the country, Jewish PACs more
than 31 percent of the PAC
money flowing to the third con-
gressional district.
The $160,650 that Jewish PACs
pumped into Long's warchest
came from around the country. It
indicated both the Jewish com-
munity's regard for Long and the
consensus among Jewish PACs
no matter where they were based
on congressional priorities.
Capitol PAC came $1,500. From
Denver's Committee for 18 came
$2,000. From New York's Round-
table PAC came $6,500. From
Tucson's Desert Caucus came
$10,000. There seemed to be a
unanimity around the country
that "Doc" Long, chairman of the
House subcommittee that con-
trolled U.S. aid to Israel, needed
Jewish help. More Jewish PAC
money, in fact, went to Long than
to anyone else running for a
House seat.
Helen Bentley also did well with
PAC contributions. Her campaign
pocketed $214,378 from PACs.
Much of this came from PACs j
organized by such firms as the I
Bechtel Corporation and the
Amoco, Exxon, Shell, Sun and
Union oil companies. All of these
often support pro-Arab U.S.
On election day, Helen Bentley j
won the seat that Clarence Long i
had held since 1962 by a two per-!
cent margin.
Not a single pro-Israel PAC had I
contributed to Bentley's cam-1
paign. Not one, that is, until one
month after her victory. On
December 3, 1984, the Delaware
Valley PAC of Philadelphia -
which had spent $10,000 on
Long's campaign gave Bentley .
a check for $1,000.
IN THE jargon of PACmen,

money. There is nothing illegal
about it. There is nothing
unethical about it. It reflects no
sleight of hand accounting or
backroom wheeling and dealing.
It was duly reported to the

"After Nov. 3, Helen Bentley
was the boss," said Delaware
Valley PAC President Robert
Colder, explaining his PACs con-
tribution to the congress woman.
"The Jewish community is now
trying to win her over. She's
tough, but she took the money."
Delaware Valley's contribution
to Bentley helped her settle her
campaign debt. "It lets her sleep
better at night," said Golder. If
Golder's investment pays off, it
will let him, too, sleep better at
Since 1978, Jewish PACs have increased by 75-fold
and their campaign contributions have swelled by
11,880 percent. But how effective are they? And do
they advance the cause of Israel to the exclusion of
the rest of the traditional Jewish agenda?
National PACs Richard

adroitness in moving almost
overnight from partisans of
Clarence Long to wooers of Helen
Bentley indicates the political
maturity of Jewish PACs. They
have the knack and the wisdom
to mend fences, win friends and
influence winners. They have the
savvy to channel funds into key
races around the country: One
PAC expert estimated that in
1984 almost one-third of all pro-
Israel PAC money went to only
six candidates. And they have the
resources to raise enormous sums:
Last year, for instance, pro-
Israel PACs contributed almost
$3.6 million to congressional can-
didates, a figure that dwarfs the
$17,350 given by the only overtly
pro-Arab political action commit-
tee, the National Arab-American
Association PAC (NAAA PAC).
Jewish PACs' wealth also means
that as a group they gave more
during the 1984 campaign than
did the nation's single largest
single PAC. the Realtors' PAC,
which gave $2.5 million.
To some extent, PACs have a
democratizing effect: They spread
the wealth. And the influence. The
game that used to be played only
by Capitol insiders over a hearty j
lunch with a senator at '
Washington's Cosmos Club or by
a fatcat back home in a con-
gressman's home district can now
be played by everyone
anywhere who can start a PAC.
It is a game that Jews have learn-
ed quickly. And, by all accounts, it
is one they have learned well.
IT IS ALSO a game that is hav-
ing a major influence on Capitol
Hill's debate on the Middle East,
on the public's perception of the
clout of Jews. And on Jews'
perception of their own clout. The
gentle arm twisting, the impas-
sioned lobbying, the undeniable
influence that greenbacks have
had on political careers since
perhaps the very birth of the
Republic all that, through
PACs, is now being participated
in by Jews.
This makes some U.S. Jews
very proud. It makes others very
uneasy. The ambivalence of some
Jews toward PACs reflects, in
part, the generations-old wisdom
that is still common among U.S.
Jews: Lay Low. Don't offer an
easy target.
Some Jews fear that pro-Israel
PACs could provide handy fodder
for critics who perceive undue
Jewish power and influence in the
body politic, for those who blame
the American Jewish community
for an "imbalanced" U.S. ap-
proach to the Mideast.
THE IDEA of PACs also
disturbs many Jews because, as a
community that is still over-
whelmingly liberal, Jews often
share liberals' traditional distrust
for that dirtiest of words cam-
paign finance. To many people,
funding someone's race for the
House or Senate still connotes
outright bribery: It can too easily
evoke memories of millionaires
bragging about having con-
gressmen in their back pockets.
But abandoning the PAC field
to pro-Arab political action com-
mittees, however weak they may
be for now, makes even those
Jews who are uneasy with PACs
more uncomfortable. As Richard
Altman, head of National PAC,
the largest pro-Israel PAC, said,
"To not participate is to make an
affirmative statement on the
other side. We don't have a
Bechtel or a Fluor or an Exxon to
look to for help. We must look to
There is nothing new about
PACs. They have been around
since the 1940's when labor
unions formed a fund to funnel
voluntary contributions of union
members to political campaigns.
When the CIO merged with the
AFL in the mid-1950's, its new
Committee on Political Education
(COPE) became, according to one
political scientist, "the model for
virtually all political action
WHILE OTHER interest
groups, such as the American
Medical Association and the
Realtors Association, began to
form PACs, they did not flourish
until the mid-1970's. Spurred by
the sordid tales that came out of
the Watergate scandals
grocery bags of cash being pased
to congressmen in the dark of
night, the "laundering" of
millions of dollars in campaign
funds Congress went on a
reform binge.
New laws limited an individual's
contributions to $1,000 and to a
PAC to $5,000. PAC contribu-
tions to a candidate were limited
to $10,000 up to $5,000 for each
primary and general election. And
a ban was lifted on PACs formed
by contractors to the Federal
government. Since most large
businesses either did work for
Washington or would like to
scrapping this ban was a major
boon to PACs' growth.
In 1974, when these reforms
began, there were 608 PACs. Two
years later, they doubled to 1,146.
By 1980, there were 2.551. By the
end of last year, there were 4,009.
Although this may sound like
there is a PAC in every town in
America, "only about 500 of these
matter," said Edward Zucker-
man, editor of the Washington
newsletter, PACs and Lobbies.
"The rest are of little
PAC MONEY has matched
their growth. In 1977 78. PACs
gave over $35 million to can-
didates. By 1983-84, they gave
more than $112 million.
PACs have been accused of
everything from boosting the
price of a senatorial campaign by
150 percent over the last six years
to corrupting the solons of Capitol
Hill. Few critics go so far as to say
that PACs actually bribe con
gressmen, but, as Kep. Tom
Downey (D., N.Y.) said. "You
can't buy a congressman. But for
$5,000, you can buy his vote on a
particular issue."
When Rep. Mike Synar (D.,
Okla.) sought the vote of a fellow
House member for a particular
bill, his colleague refused. He was
obligated to a certain PAC, he ex-
plained, for a $10,000 donation.
"If I vote the other way," he said,
"they'll give it to my opponent.
Then I'll be $10,000 in the hole."
"The only difference between a
bribe and a contribution," Rep.
Andy Jacobs (D., Ind.) has said,
"is that Congress defines what a
contribution is." (Last year,
Jacobs was one of eight House
members who refused to accept
PAC money.)
PERHAPS THE most serious
charge against PACs is that they
"threaten democracy." To the ex-
tent that the funneling of PAC
money into a campaign thousands
of miles from a PACs home base
influence elections, "then local
voters lose influence," said
Washington journalist Edward
Roeder. This premium on money
and "outside money," at that
fosters, said Roeder, "plutocracy,
not democracy."
But PACmen argue that their
groups encourage everyone
even small contributors to get
politically involved; that they
reward not bribe members of
Congress for voting certain ways;
and that they reflect the ethnic,
political and financial diversity of
PAC critics are "like Chicken

Council, an organization of cor-

serve a useful function. As
University of Southern California
political scientist Herbert Alex-
ander said, "Interest groups must
support their friends and PACs
are the way to do that. People are
powerless unless they can com-
pete. PACs give everyone a voice
in Washington."
For decades, Jews didn't have
much of a voice in Washington. If
they did, it was muffled and hesi-
tant. But since the late 1940's,
Jews have perhaps become the
most sophisticated of ethnic
groups in the country. Despite
this sophistication, Jews came late
to the PAC game. The first pro-
Israel PAC was not formed until
Then. Mark Siegel left the
White House as Jimmy Carter's
liaison to the Jewish community
to form the National Bipartisan
Political Action Committee. In its
first years, Siegel's PAC gave
$31,350 to 42 congressional races.
In 1980, Morris Amitay left as ex-
ecutive director of the American

PACs around the country attemp-

"The genie is clearly out of the
bottle," said political scientist
Herbert Alexander of the recent
focus on pro-Israel PACs. "No
one in the Jewish community was
interested in making a big splash
with PACs. They could have been
very effective by being more
discrete and quiet."
Initially. Jewish PACs did try to
deflect attention by adopting such
nondescript names as Citizens
Organized for the National In-
terest or Georgia Citizens for
Good Government or Arizona
Politically Interested Citizens.
Their names could have been in-
spired by randomly choosing a
phrase from a civics text.
"We did not say out loud that
we preferred not to have 'Israel'
or 'Jewish' in our name," said
Robert (Jolder of Delaware Valley
PAC. "But subconsciously, we
didn't want to draw any attention.

dismissed these concerns. In an
era of Jewish political power, he
said Jews should be more for-
thright and less reticent about
bow they wield that power. And
Richard Altman, head of National
PAC, the wealthiest pro-Israel
PAC, said, "We are in an era,
thankfully, when Jews are fully
American citizens. It's
f quintessentially American and
quintessentially Jewish to be
politically involved. I don't think
that maintaining a profile beneath
our dignity is called for."
More important than their
names are the guiding principles
of Jewish PACs. They all seek
strong U.S. support for Israel.

Political scientist Herbert Alex-

single-issue Jewish PACs has had
a price: It makes them appear too
parochial, too polarized, too ab-
sorbed with Israel to the detri-
ment of other issues.
NOT SO, said Delaware Valley
PACs Robert Golder. The single-
issue approach makes a PAC
politically powerful, not politically
myopic. "When members of my
PAC meet with a senator for 20
minutes and gives him a check for
his campaign, the congressman
doesn't have time for a
wide'ranging discussion. He only
wants to talk about one or two
things. And he also wants to know
why he is being rewarded. Giving
someone a check because he voted
'correctly' on a dozen issues is too
Putting Israel ahead of other
issues has produced some peculiar
political bedfellows. In 1984, for
instance, pro-Israel PACs gave
over $14,000 to Republican Mark
Siljander. Siljander's two con-
gressional campaigns have also
been enthusiastically backed by
Christian fundamentalists. Last
year, Siljander endorsed a
challenger to fellow Michigan
representative, Howard Wolpe, a
Democrat and a Jew, by claiming
the U.S. needed a "more Chris-
tian Congress."
Jewish PAC money has also
gone to Senators Peter Domenici
(R., N.M.), Robert Packwood (R.,
Ore.), William Roth (R., Del.) and
Rep. Jack Kemp (R., N.Y.). all
with the sort of conservative
voting records that would make
traditionally liberal Jews blanch.
FROM THIS overriding con-
cern of Jewish PACs with Israel
also comes a determined bipar-
tisanship. But while pro-Israel
PACs say that party affiliation
has little influence on who gets
their money, the bulk of it goes to
Democrats. Last year, for exam-
ple, Democrats received 77 per-
cent of the contributions from the
three largest pro-Israel PACs.
Of these three PACs, the Joint
Action Committee for Political Af-
fairs (JACPAC) gave the smallest

not a science, it is difficult to
gauge a PACs effectiveness.
Many factors determine whether
someone will be elected, how he
will vote if he is and which interest
groups he will allow to bend his
ear in the privacy of his Capitol i
HU1 office.
But one way to measure a
PACs success is whether it backs
winning candidates. On that
score, Jewish PACs do quite well.
In 1982, for example, 76 percent
of the candidates supported by
JACPAC won. In 1984, almost 94
percent of the candidates backed
by National PAC won. (By com-
parison, only 80 percent of the
candidates backed last year by 17

NAAA PAC would necessarily
lose, at least for now. Its 1984
campaign contributions equalled
less than .9 percent of total con-
tributions from Jewish PACs.
But it does not indicate that
both types of PACs seek "access"
to the same congressmen. Rep.
Dante Fascell (D., Fla.), for exam-
ple, the head of the House Foreign
Affairs Committee, received
$23,600 from Jewish PACs and
only $200 from NAAA PAC. Rep.
David Obey (D., Wise.), who suc-
ceeded Clarence Long as chair-
man of the House Foreign Opera-
tions Appropriations Subcommit-
tee, received $5,000 from Na-
tional PAC and $350 from NAAA
PAC. The ledger clearly favors
Jewish PACs.
EVEN THOSE candidates who
strike a pose of integrity by im-
posing a limit on funds they will
accept from PACs are not im-
mune from receiving contribu-
tions from both Arab and Jewish
political action committees. Sen.
Nancy Kasaebaum (R., Kan.), for
instance, would not accept more
than $2,000 from a PAC last year.
She received this amount from
Natinal PAC and also $250
from NAAA PAC.)
A more amorphous way to
evaluate a PACs effectiveness is
to look at what one Capitol insider
called "the atmospherics of
politics." "Much of politics is
psychological," he said.
"Influence is a perceived reality.
In the last few years, con-
gressmen have been falling all
over themselves in their rush to
vote for aid to Israel. They used to
be much more critical. This is a
sign that Jewish PACs are effec-
tive. Congressmen know that
Jews around the country can
deliver. What they deliver is cam-
paign money. And money gets so-
meone to Capitol Hill. Even con-
gressmen with a minuscule Jewish
constituency or no Jewish con-
stituency will think twice about
voting against Israel."

A FEW heads of pro-Israel

remiss if they do not use all the
means available to them to ac-
quire access and influence. With
Israel facing so many serious pro-
blems and needing rnaaasmid
American support, more PACs
are better than leas,"

Jewish Community Day Scl
The weekly "Chai-Lites" ool-
umn's objective is to communicate
the many wonderful things hap-
pening at the Day School. This
week, two students. Robin Si mi
mers. a Second-Grader from
Jackie Clark's room, and Kran
Erez. a Third-grader from Gail
Rabinovitch*s class, will speak for
themselves about their class trip
to the beach as a part or their
studies on weather.
Yesterday we went to
('ulfstream Beach. We had a pic-
nic. We learned about weather
We made sand castles. The clouds
were moving South West We
blew bubbles to see which way the
wind was going. It was fun!
Grade 2
Today my class and I went on a
l>each trip. Miss Rabinovitch and
Mr. Everett took us to the beach.
We said the prayer of the food,
and ate lunch. After we ate. we
played with a device that tells us
where the wind is coming from.
Next we went to the beach. We
learned about the winds and
clouds. Then we went into the
water. That was a lot of fun. The
science teacher, Mr. Everett took
us to the deep end, and played
with us. He picked us up so we can
be over the waves, we also went
body surfing. Another fun part
was playing in the sand. We dug
deep to get to water. I'm really
glad that my teachers took my
class to the beach, because I had
Grade 3

'Golda' Staged In Lake Worth
Lake Worth Playhouse is stag-
ing "Golda" by William Gibson.
This dramatization of (k>lda Meir.
the former Prime Minister of
Israel, will run Nov. 15 through
30, at 8 p.m. Matinees are on Nov
17, 24 and Dee 1 at 2:80 p.m.
Tickets are $6 and may be revers
ed by calling 6864410.
"Golda" is a partial portrait of
l roida Meir. one of the most effec-
tive and inspiring political leaders
of modern times. Her leadership
of a people struggling for in-
iependence and their right to sur-
vive surrounded by foes, is even
more memorable because of her
womanhood her role as mother-
figure to a nation.
The centerpiece of "Golda" is
the depiction of Meir by Joan
Wolfberg. But more than a depic-
tion of a person, it presents a por-
trait of a people and their history-
long battle and battles for their
"promised land." The large cast
of actors achieves a universality of
message life, opportunity,
morality, taking care of oneself
while trying to retain care for
one's fellow man.
Directing this exciting and
original theatrepiece is Bob
Carter, with a dramatic set and
lighting design by Charles T. Con-
nelh Stage manager is Phyllis
( atarelli and prop mistress is Con-
nie Wicheman.
Golan Farmers
Block Bridges
TEL AVIV (JTA) Farmers
in the Golan Heights have blocked
the three bridges over the up|>er
Jordan River in protest against
what they claimed was the
government's refusal to help them
out of their economic difficulties
and assist them in rescheduling a
very heavy debt load.
The farmers, all from
moshavim, blocked the bridges by
parking heavy farm equipment,
including tractors and harvesting
combines, despite warnings by
police. Some 50 farmers were

No one really knows whether the market Is at the "top ol the gain." but let's suppose there is a
correction due. Why not think about the following suggestions think seriously.

sonalized Philanthropic Fund in your name or the name of anyone else you wish to designate You

function as a valuable planning vehicle for the management of all your future charitable giving

to a public charity.

your contributing base).

cipal from the Fund to recognized charities, both Jewish and non-sectarian.
