ailed upon the rabbinical
of Orthodox, Conser-

launch a series of joint studies "in
the hope of evolving a trans-
denominational approach to mar-
riage and conversion."
He urged the adoption of a
resolution at the convention sup-
porting the principle of "con-
tinuous dialogue" among all
religious branches of Judaism.
The process of joint study of the
marriage and conversion issues.
Schindler continued, "has a worth

Moreover, said Keyes, the

Dr. Gordis Urges
Declare Terrorism An 'Int'l Crime'
The executive head of the
American Jewish Commit-

be declared "an interna-
tional crime" no matter
what the political agenda
behind it.

Regency Miami Hotel here, Dr.
David M. Gordis asserted that
"we guarantee success to the ter-
rorists" when the world gives
"center stage" to their political
agenda rather than to their
murderous deeds.
In underlining his warning. Dr.
Gordis, AJC's executive vice
president, pointed to two recent
events: the Achille Lauro hijack-
ing and Israel's strike against a
terrorist attack by hitting PLO
headquarters in Tunis.
ON THE Achille Lauro affair:
"The world proclaims its opposi-
tion to terrorism. How then to ex-
plain the eagerness of the two
governments most directly involv-
ed Italy, whose record of inter-
nal terrorism has been so good;
and Egypt, a friend of the U.S.
and at peace with Israel to
return perpetrators of that piracy
and murder to their terrorist
masters and free the architect of
the entire plot? And then the
ultimate absurdity to demand
a|H>l)gies from the U.S. for finally
taking strong, resolute action
against terrorism."
On Israel's attack on PLO head-
quarters in Tunis: "The PLO
states its goal to be the destruc-
tion of the State of Israel and
declares its right to attack all
Jews and Zionists anywhere in the
world. But when Israel strikes
back against a terrorist attack by
hitting the PLO headquarters in
Tunis, it is condemned for that
strike, even by its friends, who
argue that the attack violates
Tunisian sovereignty."
"Such responses," Dr. Gordis
went on, "are dangerous not only
because they egg the terrorists on
to greater and greater outrages.
but because they shift the
precarious center and drive the
moderates and would-be
moderates in the direction of
Dr. Gordis placed his appeal for
terrorism to be declared "an in-
ternational crime" within the con-
text of recent events, where we
are experiencing "the ascendancy
of mindlessness and extremism, a
hardening of positions, a toughen-
ing of attitudes, a driving apart of
those who should be partners,
both within the Jewish community
and between the Jewish communi
ty and groups in our larger
He explained that "the sense of
economic and social vulnerability"
had grown among the disadvan-
taged: blacks. Hispanics. women,
the elderly, the family farmers
and that this had emboldened
"those who always exploit such
vulnerability" to preach hatred
and foment violence.
"IN RECENT months." he
went on. "we have seen these
hatemongers make common cause
with religious extremists to
scapegoat Jews and the 'Eastern
establishment' and enlist new sup-
port for a campaign to 'Chris-
tianize America.' Couple his with
the renewed political asser
tiveness on the part of religious
ideologues, and we have a
blueprint for polarization and in-
creasing difficulty in maintaining
the liveable middle ground essen
tial to the functioning of a
pluralist society."
Nor is the Jewish community
immune, he continued, pointing
out that it contains whose "who

discovered she has a serious
problem of alien, illegal
labor. .
According to official
estimates, there are some
10,000 illegal aliens working police
in Israel. Many of them are course
black students from various
African countries who went
to Egyptian universities,
and when they ran out of

Israel as tourists and stayed
on to work at low wages.
Some of the aliens work in

carried pictures of a

such policemen, who came
close to clashing with the

is not funny.)
Police officials have
reported that recruiting of
new members to the force is
impossible because of the

dozens of policemen have re-
quested unpaid leave so
According to the figures of
Israel's Central Bureau of
Statistics, Israel's trade deficit
has been reduced by 27 percent in
the past four months, since the
latest economic program was put
into effect, compared to the first
half of 1985. In the 10 months of
1985 it was reduced by 26 percent

portion of the unskilled ones they could try to find other,
find work as domestic help, more lucrative jobs; and
that given such low pay,
there is a greater risk of
cops being susceptible to
taking bribes (which, of
earning some $100 to $150
per month in addition to
their room and board.
Israelis became accustomed to
cheap labor after the Six Day War course, no Israeli policeman
n 1967. with the vast labor force would ever really dream of
doing .).
The Israeli government
has long since decided that
policemen should be paid on
a par with regular army
soldiers in the enlisted
available from the administered
territories in Judaea and
Samaria, and the Gaza Strip. It
was a good symbiotic arrange-
ment: Inexpensive labor for Israeli
industry and farms, while the
laborers earned much more than
they had prior to the war. But over
the years the "West Bank" Arabs'
standard of living rose, their wage
requirements rose as well, and
with increasing security problems
and tensions, employment of
Arabs from the territories became
less and less attractive.
Meanwhile, it became
fashionable to "import" private
maids, an pairs and menial
workers from the Far East,
primarily Thais, Filipinos and
Taiwanese. Trust the "Yiddishe
Kopf" to think of ways to get
them into the country the
employers go so far as to purchase
complete tour packages for their
hired hand, who travel via Europe
and come to Israel on a week's
tour, but stay.
The African workers are but the
latest "stage" in the history of
alien labor. Of course, there are
many European young men and
women who really come as
tourists, "blow" their money and
decide to stay until they can make
enough in sunny Israel to return
to Europe. Then there are some
British girls and Scandinavians
who come in response to ads in
newspapers by a budding new in-
dustry: a brokerage service for
"paid volunteers" which finds ap-
plicants for potential employers in
The Interior Ministry has
recently asked the Government to
appropriate some $750,000 in
order to effectively locate and
deport illegal aliens. It has sug-
gested that legislation be enacted
to oblige employers of such aliens
to pay for the deportation, which
costs some $750 for each such per-
son. (HA'ARETZ)
Providing another
perspective of the same
economic situation, is the
news item that some 500
policemen in Israel were
among the 7,000 people who
applied for welfare income
supplements in October.
Dozens of ultra-orthodox
residents of the Me'ah She'arim
quarter in Jerusalem assaulted a
pair of tax inspectors at one of the
stores in the quarter. They beat
the couple severely, prevented
them from using the phone to call
for help, and refused to provide
them with first aid.
The two, working the area to in-
spect books and levy value added
tax, entered a bakery to check its
books, when suddenly a large
group of the "black coats" came
in and began to swing at them
with various objects and throw
buttles at them. When they at-
tempted to use the telephone, one
of the attackers grabbed it and
swung it at them as well. As they
managed to escape from the store
they tried to call for help from
neighboring shops, but the
shopkeepers refused to permit it.
They finally made their way to
the nearby police station in the
Russian Compound where they
lodged their complaint and were
given first aid. However, the
police has not managed to arrest
any suspects in the incident.

Federations, through Sunday at
the Washington Hilton Hotel.
The Assembly has as its theme
"The Coming of Age of North
American Jewry: Strengthening
Our Jewish Affirmation."
For the first time, the opening
plenary session was held in a loca-
tion outside the convention hotel:
the Kennedy Center. Keynote ad-
dress was delivered by CJF Presi-
dent Shoshana S. Cardin. The
plenary included a dramatic
presentation, "The Golden
Land," an acclaimed musical that
helped set the mood for the theme
of the GA by portraying the past
100 years of changing Jewish im-
migration to North America.
The GA also featured two mini-

Reform Jewish Leader Charges]
Assault Against Bill Of Rights
reform Jewish leader has charged
that the Reagan Administration is
waging an "unprecedented
assault" against the Bill of Rights,
and called upon American Jews to
defend it.
Albert Vorspan, director of the
Reform Jewish movement's Com-
mission on Social Action and a
senior vice president of its Union
of American Hebrew Congrega-
tions, told the UAHC's convention
here that the Jewish community-
has a special interest in opposing
"extremist and nativist voices
clamoring for the Christianizing
of America."
He charged that President
Reagan, Attorney General Edwin
Meese and others in the ad-
ministration are promoting the
view that "the wall of separation
between church and state is a
quaint and irrelevant notion";]
vocating public prayer, aid
parochial schools, and "equal

4. Speak to children pleasantly.
Parents need to speak to their
children in loving, kind ways and
with a spirit that is cooperative
rather than bossy and demanding.
When children come home from
school, don't immediately pounce
on them with negative comments
such as "You forgot to put your
toys away," or "Why aren't you
wearing your jacket?" Make a lov-
ing contact before you settle down
to other things. Welcome them
home and say you're glad to see
them. Be a sounding board. Listen
to their feelings about their day.
5. Mend your quarrels. If you've
had an argument with your child,
try to smoothe it out before bed-
time so the day can end on a
mellow note. Don't let either of
you go to sleep feeling upset or
angry with one another.
Similarly, if there are quarrels
in the morning, try not to let your
child leave for school with bitter
feelings. Make an effort to solve t
he problem so you part on good
terms. Even if you are not able to
resolve the issue on the spot, you
can let your child know that you
love him and that you will work
things out together later in the
Parenting is not easy for
anyone. It is a difficult, deman-
ding, and challenging job one
that requires effort, stamina, and
devotion. You will enrich your
own life and the lives of your
children as well, if you let the core
of your relationship with them be
the good feelings and good times
you share.

Parenting by Saf Lerman)
The Union of American Hebrew
Congregations (UAHC) became
the first Jewish religious
organization to join Christian
denominations in endorsing the
sanctuary movement and oppos-
ing the deportation of Central
American refugees from the
United States.
Some 3,000 delegates from
across the U.S. and Canada voted
at the UAHC's biennial general
assembly to support the sanctuary
movement despite "serious legal
implications" of providing "sur>
port, protection and advocacy
for illegal aliens.
By a two-to-one margin the
UAHC called on its 791
synagogues to furnish material
and financial aid to Central
American refugees and to join
legal efforts to overturn the
Reagan Administration's policy of
deporting them.
Rabbi Joseph Weizenbaum,
whose Temple Emanu-EI in Tuc-
son, Arii. is part of the santuary
movement, told the convention
that his temple "provides every
form of aid and support short of

federal court in Tucson in a case
involving 11 people, including
Roman Catholic and Protestant
clergymen, accused of operating
an underground railroad for
refugees in flight from persecu-
tion and possible death in El

The Reform resolution began by
citing Leviticus 19:33 about loving
sojourning strangers in your own
land. "While we acknowledge that
religious institutions do not stand
outside the law," the resolution
said, "the selective interpretation
of the law and the human
tragedies that have resulted from
that interpretation call for a moral
response from us as Jews.

The Missing Factor J^ Reform
There seems to be an ingredient
missing in King Hussein's peace
initiative. It is apparent when one
compares the King's statements
on the current situation to those
of President Anwar Sadat in
Eight years ago, Sadat decided
to establish peace with the State
of Israel. His initiative began with
a series of secret Egyptian-Israeli
meetings, continued with his
historic journey to Jerusalem and
culminated in the Camp David Ac-
cords and treaty. Each step of the
way the Egyptian was accom-
panied by an Israeli prime
minister, Menachem Begin, who
wanted peace as much as Sadat
The Sadat initiative had as its
foundation the Egyptian Presi-
dent's belief that peace was better
than war. Repeatedly, Sadat told
the world that Egypt was tired of
war, that too many Egyptians
and Israelis had been killed in
Arab efforts to destroy Israel. At
one point he put it this way: "In
all sincerity I tell you that we
welcome you (Israel) among us
with full security and safety .
We used to reject you. We refused
to meet with you. Yet today I tell
you, and I declare it to the whole
world, that we accept you in per-
manent peace based on justice .
As we really and truly seek peace,
we really and truly welcome you
to live among us in peace and
Sadat's words were a little

It is impossible to find a similar
dedication to peace in King Hus-
sein's recent statements. Unlike
Prime Minister Shimon Peres,
who told the United Nations in Oc-
tober that he would go aywhere
and put everything on the taMe to
achieve peace with Jordan. Hus-
sein, refuses to commit himself to
anything. The rhetoric of peace
may be cheap but, nevertheless,
Hussein is expending little of it on
< >n Nov. 2, the King addressed
the Jordanian parliament. It was a
major speech and a long one.
There were over a dozen
paragraphs on Jordan's foreign
policy but there were only passing
references to peace. The King did
say that he was "working to open
the path of peace" as a means of
"regaining usurped Arab ter-
ritory, and Arab and Palestinian
rights." He also said that his ef-
forts "are part of the joint Arab
effort." He said that he wants a
peace conference so that "history
will, under no circumstances,
record that we have succumbed to
Israel's intransigence ."
But he did not say that he ac-
cepted Israel's right to peace and
security though Shimon Peres,
of course, says that he accepts Jo-
rdan's. He did not give any indica-
tion that he sees an intrinsic value
in peace with Israel. In fact, he
dodged the peace question. The
goal of his speech seemed to be to
convince the Arab audience that
he was still dedicated to achieving
"justice" for the Palestinians. He
seemed indifferent to what his
Israeli listeners would think.
It is not enough. If King Hus-
sein wants Israelis to consider the
concessions they might make to
achieve peace with Jordan, he will
have to convince them that his
goal is a peace treaty and not a
quick fix. A solution to the Palesti-
nian problem is an admirable goal
b\it it cannot be Hussein's only
one If it is if he does not
understand that iM'ace with his
neighbor ifl its own reward the
current initiative will go nowhere

May Undermine Philanthropic Givini
President Reagan is now
intensifying his efforts to
secure passage in Congress
of the tax-reform proposals
submitted by the Treasury
Department to the Senate
and the House of Represen-
tatives. Some of the pro-
posals undermine fund-
raising by institutions enjoy-
ing tax exemption. They are
strongly opposed by Jewish.
Catholic, Protestant and
other non-profit organiza-
tions and institutions stan-
ding to lose some $6 billion
annually in contributions, if
the new tax structure pro-
posed by the Administration
is passed by Congress.
There is today a coalition of
about 600 central Jewish and non-
Jewish bodies philanthropic,
welfare, cultural, educational,
religious which sponsor fund-
raising for communal causes and
are fighting the Administration's
tax reform plan, jointly and in-
dividually. They all make it clear
that they are not against tax
reforms in general, but are con-
cerned exclusively with the provi-
sions in the Administration's pro-
posals that repeal, or cut.
charitable deductions. They deal
only with the adverse impact of
these provisions on charitable
Federations is one of the founders
and leading memU-rs of this coali-
tion. It includes the Red Cross,
Salvation Army, National Council
6f Philanthropy. United Way of
America, American Hospital
Association, American Council of
Education, ami practically all
groups in the country conducting
fund raising, including the Ni
tmnal Conference OI Catholic
Philanthropies, and the National
Urban League. A stud) under
taken for this coalition established
that the Treasury plan would lr
ing BJboUl a reduction of 88 (*"r
cent m the level of cash-giving fa)
charity and a 38 percent decline in
gifts of securities and other sjp
predated property.
The Jewish Federations, which
raise more than $600 million an-
nually, would stand to lose about
$125 million a year. The United
Jewish Appeal would lose in
substantial contributions from
large givers whose federal tax is
currently limited to 50 percent of
their income, but will be reduced
to 35 percent under the Ad-
ministration's tax proposals,
thereby discouraging the incen-
tive of giving to tax deductible
Many of the tax-payers in the
category of the reduced 15 per
cent tax might be tempted to
benefit for themselves from this
reduction. Other Jewish causes
which raise a total of about $130
million a year under the present
tax-deductible system will also
THERE IS ALSO an important
aspect in the Administration's tax
reform structure which evokes
special concern of Jewish
organizations engaged in fighting
anti-Semitism and preventing
conflicts between Jews and other
ethnic groups the proposal to
eliminate the deducibility of state
and local taxes from the federal
tax return.
All leading Jewish organizations
interested in preventing tension
among racial and ethnic
minorities fear that this provision
would exacerbate intergroup con-
flicts as competition for scarce
funds intensifies.
A joint statement opposing this
proposal was submitted to l>oth
Mouses of Congress by the
American Jewish Congress on
liehalf of the National Jewish
Community Relations Advisory
Council (NJCRAC) and the Na-
tional Urban Coalition (NUC).
The joint statement emphasizes
that the constituent groups of
these two umbrella organizations
of the community relations agen-
cies "are not only concerned with
the potential for substantive
budget cuts which the Administra-
tion's tax structure would bring,"
but "also with how these would af-
fect relations between racial and
ethnic groups." Deducibility of
state and local taxes from federal
income tax has been a part of the
Internal Revenue Code since 1913
with the adoption of a federal in-
come tax.
"The Treasury Department's
proposal to repeal the deducibili-
ty of taxes paid to state and local
governments would severely
hamper their ability to fund vital
programs for their residents and
would almost immediately fire a
revolt by taxpayers to lower state
and local taxes since they would
become more costly in after-tax
dollars." the joint memorandum
warns. It predicts that "such a
revolt would have a strong chance
of success." Some 33 million
households take the deductions
for state and local taxes.

proposal to eliminate state and
municipal taxes from federal in-
come tax, says this is necessary

federal deficit in the shortest

3 Israelis To Testify
At Egyptian Inquiry
Three Israelis were ex-
pected to testify before an
Egyptian inquiry into the
killing of seven Israeli
tourists in Sinai last month
- allegedly by an Egyptian
soldier, the Foreign
Ministry announced.
However, two of the three
Israelis were not expected to at-
tend the inquiry on the scheduled
date since that day marks the 30th
day after the murder of one of the
witness' sons in the tragic inci-
dent at Ras Burka. some 40
kilometers south of Eilat.
^ The Foreign Ministry said
Sarah Baum and her 12-year-old
son. Ehud, together with Gera
Koren. would give evidence at the
inquiry in Neviot in the Sinai. But
Baum indicated a conflict with
scheduling, saying she will be at-
tending a memorial service at the
gravesite of her other son,
10-year-old Amir, a victim of the
Sinai attack.
EHUD, her other son, said he
refused to enter the area again

soldiers to ensure the security of

You've got to have heart or
you've got to have feeling. In the
16th century, the Jewish c-
ommunity of Venice produced a
Jewish Code of Ethics, entitled
Shulhan Aruch. This Code was
designed to enable Jewish c-
ommunities to be guided by
Jewish religious principles in all of
life's situations.
As time went on, the Code was
amplified and clarified, but the
basic principles for conduct were
always there as a guide, down to
this day. There were, for instance.
regulations concerning Hachnasat
Or'him Welcoming guests and
strangers; Menahem Avelim
comforting the bereaved; Bikkur
Holim Visiting the Sick. These
ethical behavioral guideposts are
just a few of the many recorded in
the Shulhan Aruch.
These guides were developed

they were developed by the Jewish
communities with soul and feel-
ing. It may be the small Shtetel
was conducive to community
sharing, community concern and
individual feeling of social respon-
sibility; it may be that the large,
impersonal metropolis has vitiat-
ed a natural tendency.
Even in education today,
educators are philosophically con-
cerned that our children, who are
being raised on the computer
counter, may be influenced by the
computer's lack of feeling and
emotion. The computer figures
and produces but doesn't emote
and feel.
Our world is more complicated
today than in the days of our
ancestors' shtetel living; we do
need accredited experts as
beacons of light in all forms of
human relationships, but we also
need individuals with heart and
soul You too can serve with
heart if you will it.

Louisville Gets Abramson,
First Jewish Mayor
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (JTA) Jerry Abramson J
former Democratic Alderman and member of the United
Jewish Appeal's Young Leadership Cabinet has become the
first Jewish mayor of this city.
Abramson picked up 73 percent of the city's votes in
defeating his opponent, Republican Bob Helennger.
Abramson succeeds Harvey Sloane. The 73 percent plurali-
ty represents the largest margin of victory ever by a mayor
in Louisville.
THE 39-YEAR-OLD ABRAMSON, born in Louisville,
is an active member of Congregation Knesseth Israel (Or-
thodox). He has, in the past, been active m numerous
Jewish organizations and activities.
Besides his involvement with the UJA, he has been ac-
tive as a member of the Board of Directors of the Jewish
Community Federation of Louisville, on the executive
board of the local chapter of B'nai B'rith, and former chair-
man of the local affiliate of the National Jewish Community
Relations Advisory Council.
There are an estimated 13,000 Jews in Kentucky
representing about 0.4 percent of the state's overall
population. Some 9,000 Jews live in Louisville.

ceremonies, smoothly guiding the
program through speakers,
entertainment and interaction
with the audience, which ranged
through every age group and
varied backgrounds. Grossman, in
his introduction, described his
eight years of living and working
in Israel.
Guest speaker was Rabbi Jack
Green of Congregation B'nai Zion
in Miami Beach, formerly of
Baltimore. He mesmerized the au-
dience with his dynamic personali-
ty and sense of humor, focusing
on the role Israel plays in every
Jew's life and in maintaining the
unity of the Jewish People. Other
guests in attendance included
Rabbi Bruce Warshal, executive
director of the South County
Jewish Federation; and Uri
Cohen, shaliach (emissary) from
Israel, directing the Israel Aliya
Center for South Florida.
The evening's entertainment
came from Ya'acov Sassi, who
sang, led the audience in Israeli
songs, and in Israeli folk-dancing;
and from the Seventh and Eighth
Grade students of the South C-
ounty Jewish Community Day
School, who put on a playlet "This
Is Your Life, Israel." which was
well received by the audience.
Refreshments Israeli-style, in-
cluding pita, hoummus and
tehina, and baklava rounded off
the program.
The focus of the evening was
"to put the Aliya Council on the
map in this community to bring
its work to the attention of the
community, and to demonstrate
there is interest in it to our
leaders and the Jewish establish-
ment. This, we believe, we have
accomplished even better than we
expected." said Harvey
Grossman. "Now the real work
starts we want many of these
same people to become involved,
join the Council, serve on commit-
tees, help bring the message of
Aliya to the masses and help those
who are considering Aliya to take
the step."
During the next few weeks, said
Robin Bralow, the Aliya Council
will be expanded, and various
committees will be set up to imple-
ment educational programs in-
cluding, hopefully, some to be held
through temples and synagogues,
and various pro-Israel volunteer
organizations. Anyone interested
in becoming active as a council
member should contact Robin

A plague of commendation was
awarded to Henry and Anne
Brenner on Friday, Nov. 1 by
Marianne Bobick, Federation
president, and Arnold Rosenthal,
chairman of the Day School
Board, for their commitment to
the Day School library. The in-
scription reads "The South Coun-

ner, founders of our library, for
their untiring support of the Day
School library. Their Jewish com-
mitment is an inspiration to
children and adults."

The award ceremony was held
during Kabbalat Shabbat, and the
students shared their weekly ser-
vice with their special guests who
jointly recited the Messmgs over
candles, wine and challah with the
second and third graders.
In accepting the award, the
Brenners reviewed the long list of
.Jewish Nobel Prize winners and
reminded the students that such
achievements are possible with
hard work and discipline. Henry
Brenner told the students he
hoped to see their names among
the future list of Nobel Laureates.
The First and Second graders
participated in "the Great
American Smoke-Out" contest by
drawing creative posters with the
basic theme that smoking is
"hazardous to your health."
The posters, including such
things as blackened lungs, broken
hearts, representing the sadness
that family members feel when
their loved ones smoke, and ban
signs on cigarettes.

Peres Presses His Initiative To Pursue Mideast Peace
Premier Shimon Peres, pressing
ahead with his efforts to revive
the faltering Middle East peace
process, met with U.S. Am-
bassador Thomas Pickering to
discuss ways to arrange interna-
tional auspices for direct talks bet-
ween Israel and a Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation.
King Huasem of Jordan insists
an international framework is
necessary if he is to negotiate with
Israel. Israel has rejected Hus-
sein's proposal that the talks be
held under the auspices of the
United Nations Security Council
with the participation of its five
permanent members, including
the Soviet Union.
Pickering was accompanied at
the meeting by Wat Cluverius, the
outgoing U.S. Consul in East
Jerusalem who has been ap-
pointed the State Department's
special envoy to promote Middle
East peace negotiations.
Cluverius will be replaced by
another veteran of Mideast
diplomacy, Morris Draper, who
was closely involved with former
special envoy Philip Habib in try-
ing to resolve the Lebanon co-
nflict several years ago.
Israeli sources said Pickering
briefed Peres on the outcome of
Secretary of State George
Shultz's pre-summit talks in
Moscow last week. He briefed
Foreign Minister and Deputy
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
separately on the same subject.
Israel Radio reported that
Shultz had failed to persuade the
Kremlin to free imprisoned
Jewish activist Anatoly Sha
ransky as a goodwill gesture in ad-
vance to this month's summit
meeting between President
Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail
Meanwhile, officials here
dismissed as worthless Palestine
Liberation Organization chief
Yasir Arafat's statement in Cairo
that the PLO opposed all terrorist
acts against innocent, defenseless
people. Arafat sought to
distinguish between such attacks
and what he called legitimate
resistance to the Israeli occupa-
tion of Palestine.
Calls For 'Active
Affirmation' Of
Interreligious Dialogue!
One of America's
foremost theologians has
called for an "active affir-
mation" of interreligious
dialogue as a way of
avoiding "religious im-
perialism" and the threat of
a monolithic future.

American Jewish Committee's

Hotel in Miami. Prof. Harvey Cox
added that a greater acceptance
of religious pluralism was
necessary to offset the fear of the

JERUSALEM (JTA) A blast by Ariel Sharon against
Premier Shimon Peres will lead to a showdown confrontation
that could destroy the fragile Labor-Likud unity coalition
Key Labor sources said that relations between the coalition
partners reached a state of crisis as the result of a speech by
Sharon to Herat colleagues in Haifa in which he attacked Peres
in language usually heard only in the heat of an election cam-
paign. Peres has asked Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir, the
Likud leader, to meet with him to discuss Sharon's speech.
Labor sources said they are vigorously urging the Premier to
lire) Sharon who is Minister of Commerce and Industry in the
coalition cabinet. Normally, a Premier is empowered to dismiss
any cabinet minister. But under the coalition agreement, Peres
and Shamir each waived the right to exercise that power with
respect to a member of the other's party.

cover philosophical aspects of sex

matters in medicine and decision-
making in situations in which a
hospital is forced, because of
budgetary limitations, to allocate
priorities among patients.

Barry University Offers
Judaics MA Course
In South County
Barry University, one of the
most progressive and dynamic
universities in Florida, is expan-
ding its unique Masters (MA) pro-
gram in Jewish Studies to the
South County area.
Dr. Jeremiah Unterman, d-
irector of the Jewish Studies Pro-
gram, is encouraged about this
new extension, for he has received
many inquiries regarding the
program from residents of South
County. Dr. Unterman holds a BA
in Hebraic Studies from Rutgers
University, an MA in Biblical St-
udies from the Hebrew University
in Jerusalem, and a PhD in Near
Eastern Studies from the Univer-
sity of California at Berkely.
This program is geared to meet
the needs of those who wish to
receive a sophisticated, modern
education in Judaica, whether for
their own edification, or to aid
them in their involvement with
Jewish communal agencies and
educational institutions.
The first course to be taught in
Boca will be "Biblical Judaism" -
an analysis of significant basic

If one wishes, Buenos
Aires is in a different world;
is occasionally mentioned in
the news or glimpsed in a
movie setting. Then again,
if one ivi8hes, the next town,
even the next neighborhood,
are in a different world .
But Argentina, and other
Latin American countries
are not in a different world
and that is even more
true for their Jewish com-
munities, which are not even
part of a different People
(though they may be of dif-
fering nationalities...)
Increasingly, in recent
months, there have been
news reports of events conc-
erning Jews in South
America. Some positive
reports, also plenty of bad
news (the bad news is usual-
ly what gets the attention).
More incidents of anti-
Semitism. The finding of
Mengele's cursed remains.
There are many reasons
why the focus on that por-

There is a large Jewish
community in Argentina, in
particular. More than
250,000 Jews, with some
200,000 living in Buenos
Aires. They face certain
problems have been for
some time, even when not
under immediate threat of
life and limb. There are
some 10-15 percent, who are
wealthy; some 15-20 per-

subsisting. The rest are
"middle class" but finding it
difficult to remain so.

event, and Philip Zinman
will serve as co-chairman,
according to Jim Nobil,
chairman of the South
County Jewish Federation's
Men's Division.
The Chai event will be the
first major Men's Division
for the 1986 Campaign. It
will be held on Sunday, Dec.
15, at 6 p.m.
A noted speaker, expert on
Anglo-Saxon Jewry, will be
featured, tying the event
with the community theme,
which during November and
December, is focusing on
that segment of world Jewry.
(The Honorable Greville
Janner, British MP and
president of The Com-
monwealth Jewish Council
which includes 25 countries,
had been invited, but could
not attend as Parliament
will be in session.)
The Chai dinner is open to

is $18,000 or more.

with a description of Israel's

Chairwoman Phyllis Squires ex-
plained the structure of the
Women's Division, introducing
the new area chairwomen, follow-

heads spoke. Doris Cantor
described how the Women's Divi-

The resolution, proposed by the
Socialist group and backed by the
Italian Communists, also called
for the recognition of the
Palestine Liberation Organization
as the representative of the
Palestinian people and said it
should take part in the Middle

Foundation chairman Gary
Bernstein said the charter donors
have pioneered a project which
will enable this Jewish community
to grow and develop, and have
justified the Federation's move in
setting up the Foundation last
year. The JCF was established in
1984 to develop an endowment
fund for South County, and has, to
date, received pledges and assets
of $3.6 million. In the past year it
has disbursed grants and alloca-
tions to various Jewish and gen
eral community causes, totalling
well over $100,000.
a precedent-setting action, the
Union of American Hebrew Cat*
gregations (UAHC) endorsed the
principle of Reform Jewish day
schools as a "valid educational op-
tion" while rejecting public funds
for the support of private
By a two-to-one margin,
delegates to the UAHC's 58th
biennial convention voted to
develop curricula and materials
for "full-time Reform Jewish
schools." and to prepare training
programs for teachers and ad-
ministrators. The 3,000 delegates
also voted "to provide guidance
and counsel to those congrega-
tions and communities that are
considering the establishment od
such schools."
Rabbi Alexander Schindler,
president of the UAHC, hailed the
adoption of the resolution, declar-
ing: "The vote moves our religious
community toward a future of
greater self-reliance. It gives us a
way to harvest the fruits of our
deepening commitment to
Judaism without betraying our
universalist concerns." A similar
resolution had been defeated
twice before at previous UAHC
The .resolution said, in part
"The UAHC reaffirms its commit
ment to the principles of public
education and calls upon our con
gregations and our Commission
on Social Action to develop pro
grams aimed at encouraging our
congregants to involve
themselves actively and directly in
efforts to strengthen their local
public systems."
The resolution opposed tuition
tax credits for private schools and
called for more federal funds for
education programs designed to
help minority, disadvantaged and
disabled students. The resolution
added: "Today many public
schools are plagued by economic,
educational and social problems.
It is incumbent on the Jewish com-
munity to be deeply involved in
the struggle to strengthen and re-
invigorate our public school
The resolution noted with
"pride and appreciation" that
about 10 Reform Jewish day
schools are already in operation,
and that other congregants are
currently exploring the establish-
ment of such schools.
