Task Force on Soviet Jewry
in her city and is honorary
chairperson of the

Sister Coleman is a well-
known human rights ac-
tivist, who has visited the
Soviet Union twice in
1978 and again in 1980
because of ner interest in
the plight of Soviet Jewry.
A native of New York,
Sister Gloria served as an

and has won more than 20
civic awards for her work,

various Jewish organiza-
tions and temples.
Mrs. Sacks, at the time of
writing, said she was hoping
to mobilize support for this
rally from the interfaith
community in South Coun-
ty, with the help of the
clergy of the various
denominations. In view of
the failure of the Geneva
Summit to produce any
changes for the better in the

The Likud, which opposes relin
quishing any part of the "West
Bank.*' will almost certainly op-
pose this vehemently and split
with Labor.
This would inevitably lead to a
narrow coalition between Labor
and some of the religious parties.
And the price Labor would have
to pay would be the long sought-
after revision of the Law of
Return, defining as Jews only
those converted strictly according
to Halacha. and dealing the
Reform and Conservative
movements a serious blow.
So that while many American
liberal Jews would like to see the
peace process move ahead with
Jordan, it is the very thing that
could lead to serious disaffection
among them with Israel .
Prof. Irwin Cotler of McGill
University, (slated as guest
speaker for the CHAI event of
South County's Men's division on
Dec. 15.) joined Avital Scharansky
in Geneva during the Summit
meeting, to take part in a "Sum-
mit vigil" on behalf of her husband
Anatoly and other Soviet
dissidents incarcerated because of
their struggle for human rights.
Cotler, chairman of the Cana-
dian Helsinki Watch Group, has
been serving as Scharansky'a
lawyer for the past eight years,
and has authored a 900-page brief
on Anatoly's behalf Anatoly was
arrested in 1977, and sentenced in

Cotler told reporters he was op-
timistic that Gorbachev may
release Scharansky and other pro-
muwnt prisoners of conscience
not because of any change in Soviet

urll conclude this was in the
Soviet Union's best interest. It
would help remove some of the ma-
jor symbols for Western protest
against Soviet human rights viola-
tions, and at little political cost,
wilt help refurbish the Soviet im-
age and remove the pressures, so
they could concentrate on their ob-
jectives in the Star Wars and

The parents of some 500
Yemenite children who
allegedly "disappered" in
the early 1950's have band-
ed together to press for an
official government inquiry
into the affair.
It started with one or two
isolated cases, of Yemenite im-
migrants who were brought to
Israel on the famous "Operation
Magic Carpet" between 1950 and
1952, and lost their children. In
the past few years, for various
reasons, they became convinced
that their children were taken
away to be placed for adoption,
while they were told the children
died. But they looked in vain for
gravesites, or official death cer-
tificates, and instead found other
circumstancial evidence to rein-
force their suspicions.
As these cases received ex-
posure in the media, other
families with similar storl
emerged, claiming their chili

might have good reason to rejoice
over Hanukah, too, for had not the
brave Maccabees sacrificially risk-
ed their lives to keep the flame of
monotheism alive, would that lit-
tle country of Judea have given
birth to its daughter faith some
160 years later?
The Hanukah saga is recorded
in several books of that poet-
Biblical literature known as the
Apocrypha. The Books of the Mac-
cabees describe in rJetail the way
in which the weak overcame the
strong. It is a story which has
been duplicated other times as
well. Witness the triumph of a
handful of colonists under George
Washington against the British.
Witness the incredible way a
handful of British aviators held off
the Nazi hordes. Witness the vic-
tories of the modern Maccabees in
the resurrected state of Israel,
against forces which outnumbered
them 200 to 1. The story of the
Maccabees (also known as the
Hasmoneans) has also been cor-
roborated by archeological finds.
The Book of John in the New
Testament, mentions Jesus'
observance of Hanukah, which is
also known as the Feast of Lights.

Celebrating Hanukah: Background Facts
(Presented by the Chaplaincy
Service of the South County Jewish
Federation, Rabbi Joseph Pollack.
Hanukah marks the deliverance
of the Jewish People in ancient
Israel from the oppression of the
Syrian Greeks in the Second Cen-
tury BCE. The Greeks attempted
to impose heathen practices on
the Jewish population, as part of
their effort to "Hellenize" their
subjects everywhere.
But Judah and his four brothers,
sons of Mattathias (Mattityahu)
the priest, all members of the
Hasmonean family, led a rebellion
against them. The revolt reached
its climax when King Antiochus
IV (Epiphanes) of Syria prohibited
Jewish observance of sacred prac-
tices, including the basic act of cir-
cumcision not to mention Tem-
ple rituals. Sabbath observance
and the study of Torah. The final
insult was the conversion of the
Holy Temple into a pagan shrine.
The Hasmoneans were vic-
torious, against tremendous odds.
The festival of Hanukah was then
established as a celebration not
merely of the military victory and
regaining of independence, but as
a symbol of the continuity of the
Jewish People and its covenant
with G-d; the very existence of
which was threatened to be sud-
denly extinguished by the Syrians.
That is why the festival is
celebrated with the kindling of
lights. That is why Hanukah.
though a post-Biblical holiday, is
in no way to be considered a minor
The Hanukah Menorah
(candelabra) of eight candles,
unlike the other traditional
candles lit by Jews for Sabbath
and festivals, may not be used for
illumination or for any other
purpose. It is strictly for show a
symbol and reminder of the
miracles of Hanukah. That is why
a ninth candle a "service can-
dle" or shamaah was added.
That is also why, traditionally, the
Hanukah menorah was placed in a
window or doorway, exhibited to
the outsidf and making the
reminder a public one.
It is usually thought that the
eight days of Hanukah, and its
eight candles, commemorate the
miracle of the oil: When the
Hasmoneans cleaned out the Tem-
ple from all pagan artifacts they
found only one jug of olive oil,
enough to light the Temple's
(seven-arm) eternal-light menorah
for one day. However, the oil in
fact lasted for the extra week it
took to prepare fresh olive oil to
the specifications required.
But the mxdrash, ancient com-
mentary on Bible, (of Talmudic
era) offers two other explanations
for the eight days: one says that
when the Hasmoneans cleaned
out the Temple they found eight
iron spears, and stuck those in the
ground and placed a light atop
each one. The other explains that
it took eight days to rebuild the
altar on which the daily ritual
sacrifices were made.
As in all cases, the traditional
halacha (Jewish law) specifies to
the detail how the candle-lighting
ceremony is to be handled. The
first candle is lit at the right side
of the menorah, and each night a
new candle is added to the left of
it. But each night, the newest can-
dle is lit first, so that candles are
added right to left, but are lit from
left to right, immediately follow-
ing the recitation of the blessings.
Only the shamash is to be used to
light the other candles.
Candles may be lit any time
after sundown, and should be suf-
ficient to burn for half-an-hour.

5746: Creation and Counting the Years of the World
Author'8 Note: The following
material should not be difficult to
understand, although it may seem
difficult to follow because of the in-
clusion of various examples and
rabbinical data. Our teacher
Maimonides said of the calcula-
tions, part of which are included,
that even school children can learn
and fully understand them in
three or four days. Accordingly,
the material is presented in three
(or four) segments, in the coming
issues of -THE FLORIDIAN it
is suggested that this first segment
and the subsequent ones be kept for
reference until the last article in
the series appears.
The creation of the world was
an uninterrupted seven-day event
which took place in parts of two
years. The creation took place in
five days, 14 hours (not including
the 14th hour) of the end of the
year, which was considered Year
One. The final phase occurred on
Friday, with the creation of Adam
(at 14 hours), and that was on the
first day of the following year.
Year Two. Keeping this in mind
will help to understand better the
method used in counting years
documenting events.
When creation took place, there
was evening, there was morning,
one day. There was evening, there
was morning, a second day. This is
repeated during the creation
period, replacing the numeral of
each day by the next successive
numeral, up to the end of creation.
There is no question that evening
preceded morning in the structure
of the day.
However, there is a question of
when does evening begin or,
when does the 24-hour day begin?
Each New Year begins with tin-
first day of the month of Tishrei
(in September). Each year for
that matter each month begins
with the "zero hour" of the day of
the Molad (moon's birth), which is
the mean astronomical new moon.
The day begin I m this respect
throughout the year with the
preceding evening, starting at f>
p.m. according to our present way
of counting hours. Monday, for in
stance, starts on Sunday at 6 p.m.
This moment is called the Zero
hour (Ohr) of Monday in the
Jewish calendar.
From Maimonides we know that
the day and night together count
for 24 hours. 12 hours for each, in
any season. Maimonides explains
that we reckon with the equinoc-
tial day, which consists of 12
daylight hours, from 6 a.m. to 6
p.m., and 12 night hours, 6 p.m. to
6 a.m. (Jerusalem time), for the
entire year, winter or summer.
Hence, we do our reckoning not
with the seasonably varying
hours, but with the equinoctial
hour which remains constant
throughout the year. This, coupl
ed with the scriptural statement
"and there was evening, and
there was morning, one day,"
qualifies the statement that the
Jewish day starts with the
preceding day ending at 6 p.m.
throughout the year.
All Jewish calendaric calcula-
tions relating to timing of the
Molad and fixing the new month,
and establishing our holidays,
adhere to the principle of a 6 p.m.
of the previous evening being the
zero hour of the day in question. A
specific example supporting this
includes the reference that Spring
Equinox of Year One of the Crea-
tion occurred on Tuesday at 6
p.m. (zero hour for, or the start of
Wednesday). Authoritative rab-
binic sources state that the Spring
Equinox reaches its original
(Creation year) equinox point on
the same day of the week (Tues-
day) and the same moment (6
p.m.) every 28 years.
(By the way, observant Jews
have a ceremony blessing the sun
every 28 years, always on a
A reference from Spiers'
100-year Comprehensive Jewish
Calendar: "The very first Spring
Equinox took place Adar 22
(March) at the beginning of
Wednesday, that is Tuesday even-
ing at 6 p.m. of Year One of the
Creation of the world."
This "zero hour" concept is
covered in some detail here
because it is strange to many
The year of the creation is fixed
at 3761 BCE. The year 3761 ap
plies to the calendar months from
Rosh Hashana to December 31,
while 3760 BCE is used for calen-
dar months from January 1 to
Rosh Hashana of that year. For
example: we are now in the year
5746; for dates from Rosh
Hashana to December 31 of this
year subtract 3761. and the result
is the Gregorian calendar year of
1986. From January 1, subtract
3760, and you obtain 1986 of the
Gregorian calendar.
As is the case each year, the
first year of the world's creation
begina with the Molad of Tishrei.
Calculating backwards from the
moment of an observed moon
birth places the Molad Tishrei in
the year 3761 BCE at 2 days
(Monday). 5 hours 204 parts (1080
parts make an hour). The second
day (Monday) begins at 6 p.m. on
Sunday; and so the Molad of
Tishrei of that year was at
11:11:20 p.m. (11 minutes. 20
seconds past 11 p.m.) on October
6. 3761 BCE.
This is the moment from which
all calculations are made in
establishing any new month. It is
known as Baharad (from the
Hebrew letters Bet-2. Heh-5.
Resh-Daled-204. standing for 2
days, 5 hours. 204 parts). It is im-

origin before the world's ex-

was actually almost 12 months
gone before creation, except for
the last five days and 14 hours
which were the first five days and
14 hours of the seven days of
It is Biblical practice to treat as
a full year in counting the time of
an event which took place over a
fraction of that year. We learn
this also from Kings, who counted
their years of reign from the first
of Nissan, so that if a king reigned
even one day of the previous
month he was considered in his se-
cond year as soon as Nissan
The creation era was completed
with the creation of Adam on the
first day of Year Two (since that
year began during the seven days
of creation) thus, the world's
creation is reckoned as being in
the year 3761 BCE, and the crea
tion of mankind in the year 3760
Some of the ancient rabbis
were divided in their opinion
whether creation took place in
Tishrei or in the month of Nissan,
six months prior to Tishrei. Rabbi
Eliezer and Rabbi Joshua debated
this, with Rabbi Joshua arguing in
favor of Nissan (meaning that the
entire process was in the year
3671 BCE). Chronologists,
however, begin the years' count
from the moon birth of Tishrei, as
the beginning month of the year.
0t should be noted that in
Talmud there are four differed
"New Years" Tishre,
Nissan are two of them.)
The controversy is mitigated
that the sages in Israel count,'
Tishrei as the beginning of t
civil year, while they consider
Nissan to be the beginning of i

100 Women Make It in Rabbinate
Most of the 18 women or-
dained last summer as rab-
bis including the first
Conservative woman rabbi
have been appointed by
congregations as assistant
rabbis, according to reports
to the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency in its anual survey
of such appointmets.
Data on the appointments was
obtained from the Reconstruc-
tionist Rabbinical College; the
Hebrew Union College-Jewish In-
stitute of Religion, the Reform In-
stitution; and the Jewish
Theological Seminary of America
(JTS), the Conservative School.
The 18 new rabbis, brought to
110, the number of American
women entering the rabbinate
sice the process l>egan in the
Reform movement more than 12
years ago. The current enrollment
in the three seminaries means
that continuing additions annually
to the pool of women rabbis are
virtually assured for the future.
TWELVE OF the 18 women
were ordained as Reform rabbis,
and five were ordained as
Recostructionist rabbis. Amy
Eilberg of Providence, R.I., the
first Conservative woman rabbi,
has been appointed a chaplain at
Methodist Hospital in
The five new Recostructionist
rabbis are Sandra Berliner, of
Toledo; Vivian Schirn, Los
Angeles; Deborah Brin, Min-
neapolis; Bonnie Goldberg,
Brooklyn; and Andrea Gouze, The
Brox. NY.
Berliner was named solo rabbi
of Tiferes B'nai Israel in Warr-
ington, Fa., and Schirn was nam-
ed solo rabbi of Temple Hatikvah
in Flanders, N.J. A solo pulpit is
the designation for the spiritual
leader of a congregation too small
to need more than one rabbi.
Brin is chaplain at Martin's Run
Retirement Community in Media.
Pa. Goldberg is director of group
services at the YM-YWHA in

EILBERG was one of 18
women who made Jewish history
in 1984 as the first women to
enter the rabbinical school of JTS.
Their admission climaxed a battle
of nearly a decade in the Conser-
vative movement over the admis-
sion of women to the JTS as rab-1
binical candidates.
Eilberg was ordained after or* I
year of study in the JTS rabbiniaJ
school because she had acquired
sufficient credits through study in
JTS rabbiical school courses,
previously permitted to women
students but not for credit for the |
rabbinate, since 1976.

Mo*w 9tl|| l^ pained when
reminded of evangelist Billy
Graham's recent statement about
the existence of religious freedom
in the Soviet Union. And Jewish
Refuseniks (Soviet Jews who have
been denied exit visas) and Chris-
J tian dissidents in the Soviet Union
1 deny categorically that they enjoy
freedom of religion.
But there is a shell of religion
left here. Strange as it may seem,
Moscow has a more religious look
to it than Houston. Moscow's ma-
jestic, onion-topped Russian Or-
thodox churches crowd the skyline
and give the impression of a socie-
ty in which religion is a cor-
nerstone. The Soviet government
is in the process of spending
billions of dollars restoring the
country's historic old churches as
monuments to Russian history.
After one understands that these
gorgeous structures, which
predate the Communist revolution
in 1917, were once magnificent
churches, the architecture evokes
a feeling that, somehow,
somewhere, religioti must still be
alive and well in the Soviet state.
But the feeling is considerably I
diminished with the realization
that most of these buildings are
museums, not houses of worship.
The prominent physical
presence of Moscow's churches is
in sharp contrast to Houston's
secular-dominated architecture in
which banks, oil company head-
quarters and other businesses
prevail on the skyline. Even
Houston's largest chruch struc-
ture, the $25 million sanctuary
under way at Second Baptist
Church, 6400 Woodway, will not
attract the attention that
-.strategically located Russian Or-
thodox churches do in Moscow.
Our Soviet guide, Tonya, who
told us right off that she is an
atheist and communist, is proud of
the fact that there are about 50 ac-
tive churches, two synagogues
and one mosque in Moscow, a city
of 8.5 million people. According to
her, this is proof that religion is
alive and well in her country.
But even as she boasted, I
recalled that Houston less than
a quarter the size of Moscow is
home to more than 2,000 chur-
ches, 21 synagogues, one mosque,
three Hindu temples, three Bud-
dhist pagodas, a Sikh temple, a
Baha'i temple and a dozen or so
assorted other houses of worship.
And, ironically, there are still
some people who don't think there
are enough churches in Houston.
I asked Tonya what Soviets
think of religious life in the United
States. She said they don't "think
much about that problem."
A visit to a Moscow religious
service (it turned out to be a dou-
ble funeral) at an ornate Russian
Orthodox church used for worship
revealed considerable religious
devotion on the part of the
Muscovites who are there. The
worshippers, almost all elderly
women, were so caught up in their
religious practices that they were
even kissing the feet of the icons
(Icons are paintings of Jesus and
various early Christian figures.)
A Saturday morning prayer ser-
vice at the larger of Moscow's two
synagogues attracted a crowd of
about 50. But any illusion that this
service signals freedom of religion
evaporated 10 hours later when
the Jewish Sabbath ended.
Each Saturday evening between
75 and 100 Jews gather on the
sidewalk across from this
synagogue. We slipped away from
our guide to attend one of these
session meetings.
Participants carry no placards,
and their meetings have no struc-
ture. The Jews simply come
together for more than an hour to
talk casually and exchange news
with one another.
Mixing with this crowd, a
Westerner soon concludes that
this is a silent protest against
what participants believe is
discrimination against them and
their religion.
An elderly woman in the crowd
told me that the rabbi of the
synagogue is a "communist
front." She said the rabbi doesn't
have the best interests of
Moscow's Jewish community at
A young man, with a reddish-
colored beard, said the sidewalk
gathering is one of few ways he
has to learn about his Jewish
roots. "The synagogue is only for
prayers," he said. "We are not
allowed to study Hebrew or
Jewish literature in the
Others at the gathering told
about rejected applications for
visas to leave this place.
One young man, a 30-year-old
artist, pressed me for details
about current trends in Western

art. He said he doesn't want to
leave the Soviet Union, but he
would like to learn more about his
Jewish faith as well as improve his
understanding of Western art.
As the people on the street cor-
ner began to accept us as friends,
they started to ask about religious
life in Houston. "How many
synagogues do you have?" one
asked. When told there are 21
synagogues and about 45,000
Jews in Houston, the man shook
his head in amazement. "We have
250,000 Jews in Moscow and only
two synagogues," he noted.
Another asked. "What kind of
activities do you have in your
synagogues in Houston?" He
seemed almost angry when he was
told about the rainbow of ac-
tivities sponsored by Houston
synagogues and the plethora of
non-synagogue Jewish organiza-
tions and agencies in Houston
Three people at this street cor-
ner meeting identified themselves
as Soviet Pentecostals. They said
they came to observe the Jewish
gathering because of their own
critical situation in the Soviet
Union. They said they face the
same persecution as the Jews; like
others in the crowd, the
Pentecostals said there's little
they can do about their plight ex-
cept attend low-profile meetings
and hope and pray.
When I visited the offices of
Western newspaper reporters two
days earlier, I heard about three

Pentecostals who had recently
sought and were denied asylum in
the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. Th-
three reportedly ran through the
front door of the embassy, asked
for asylum and were told that the
embassy couldn't help them. They
were given this choice: Walk back
out the door they had entered, or
climb in the back of an embassy
car and ride to the nearest subway
station, where they could flee and
try to elude the KGB, or Soviet
secret police, in the crowds.
The Pentecostals chose the ride
to the subway, but they never
made it down the subway
escalators. The reporters
predicted that the three would
never be heard from again and
speculated that they were possibly
already in some prison outside of
So, is there freedom of religion
in the Soviet Union today? Pro-
bably more than in the days of
Josef Stalin.
At least the KGB doesn't arrest
everyone attending that weekly
street corner stand-in in front of
the synagogue.
At least the Soviets let
American evangelist Billy
Graham come here and preach a
non-political sermon.
And at least the three fleeing
Pentecostals weren't machine-
gunned on the subway escalators.
But by Houston's high stan-
dards of religious freedom, the
Soviets still have a long, long way
to go.

Last week, following the great
social event 2 weeks earlier, some
50 members of the Young Leader-
ship Division were treated to a
unique experience and an outstan-
ding educational program in the
form of the "Jewish Encounter
Theater" led by Sally Fox.
Mies Fox put on a presentation
consisting of a variety of
characters ail of whom she por-
trays through costumes, speech
and performance. The characters
stimulate discussion on ethical
and social issues. She later
"brought back" the various
characters for interaction with the
audience, whom she encouraged
to ask questions of the characters.
In her dramatic presentation
Miss Fox dealt with such issues as
cults, euthanasia and the displac
ed elderly. According to Larry
Pitt, chairman of the Educational
Committee of YLD, "Sally Fox
captured the audience and touch-
ed everyone personally. She was
able to provoke the range of emo-
tions, from sadness to happiness
to anger. Every one of us left the
program with a good feeling, and
looking forward to the next educa
tional event."

inf 21 rabbis (and one Pro-
fit minister) arrested last
mer fur demonstrating within
[feet of the Embassy.Their
pnstration was on behalf of
.f and human rights denied to

U.S. Attorney's office, which is
prosecuting the case, was pressed
by the Soviet Embassy to do so
but in other cases of demonstra-

bassy (such as that of South

This group of rabbis,
demonstrating under the auspices
of the Washington Area Rab-

mittee on Soviet Jewry of the
Rabbinical Assembly of America

several such groups to be ar-
rested. They decided that civil
disobedience was necessary to em-
phasize the cause of Soviet Jewry.
Prior motions to dismiss based
on the selective prosecution were
denied by the court. The rabbis
have entered a not guilty plea, and
the defense will attempt to draw
on the testimony of expert
witnesses to emphasize justice of
such a demonstration. Said Rabbi
Feldman: "We joined together to
protest both against the Soviet
policy and against the limitation
placed on our rights to peaceful
demonstration. We all hope that

ticipants can play in using this
theme to guide the community in-
to the next century.
To Shep Kaufman, the continui-
ty of the Jewish People, and the
future, as assured by educating
the younger generations, are of
paramount importance. "We are
really fortunate that we are in at
the beginning of the establish-
ment of something for the future.
It's a new community, and the
needs are now immense. And by
working to meet these needs we
are really building something.
And it's exciting."
This, and the sense of history
which has to make up for not hav-
ing known one's grandparents, or
great grandparents, are some of
the things that motivate Shep to
reach every Jew possible, and
make him or her part of the pro-
cess of building this community,
caring for the elderly, educating
the young and ensuring the con-
tinued existence of Israel. This is
what he reads in the theme and
how he sees it implemented, with

A Glimpse of the GA
The 54th General Assembly of
the Council of Jewish Federations
in Washington, D.C. attracted a
remarkable gathering of 3000
delegates from across the U.S.
and Canada.
These people are the leaders in
their Jewish communities. They
all came to Washington to be in-
spired, educated and motivated to
continue in their professional and
voluntary jobs with an even
greater understanding and com-
mitment to the needs of their
local, national and international
Jewish community.
South County Jewish Federa-
tion was well represented, with SO
delegates. The opening activities
began Tuesday morning with a
series of private 'VIP briefings."
First. Mark Perl, from the
American Jewish Congress in
formed us of the important
domestic political issuer that
ought to concern us. He urged m
not to Ih- just a single issue iobb)
Strengthening our bond with
other religious or ethnic groups
who are working to promote
similar points of view, can only
strengthen the future political pic-
ture for the Jews, he said.
Later we were ushered through
heavy security into the AIPAC
headquarters. We received an in-
tense update on the increasing
role of the Saudi influence on our
foreign policy. Also, an inside
report was given on how AIPAC
had lobbied to bring about the
delay of the Jordanian arms sale,
which had been announced just
one day prior News of AIPAC's
future focus on the college cam-
puses, to help combat the heavy
anti-Israel propaganda, was
I Hie to the efforts of Paula
Hawkins, our group was then
privileged to have a private lunch
served in an historic Chamber of
< ongress.
The day ended with an hour's
round-table discussion with an
emissary of the Israeli Embassy.
When we arrived back at our hotel
we realized that a solid base had
I>een laid for us. We felt prepared
to approach the week of seminars
and forums with more than the
cursory information we can pick
up in the daily newspapers.
The five days to follow were
carefully catalogued in a 60-page
program. The choices were over
whelming. The speakers were all
first rate. The variety of topics ap-
pealed to everyone.
There was a basic structure to days that followed. Wednes-
day centered on Young 1-eader
ship Development. Women's Divi-
ion and Campaign. Many of the
workshops involved community's
idea exchanges Innovative pro
grams that wen- successful in
other cities were shared. It was
evident that we, in the Council of
Jewish Federations, are our own
best resource.
()n Thursday we examined the
emergence of the North American
Jewish Community from
powerlessness to its current
strengh. In one workshop, Tome
Dine, AIPAC director, Hyman
Bookbinder, director of
Washington office of American
Jewish Committee and Dr. Mar
shall Breger, chairman of U.S.
Administrative Conference, all
dealt with the Jewish role in the
U.S. political process, as they each
see it. They were not all in agree-
ment as to the strategies we
should use for effective impact,
and a lively debate ensued.
Other crucial issues raised that
day included church-state mat
ters, coalition buildings, black
Jewish relationship, new lifestyle
an families in transition and the
i. h poor.

sion, A vital Sharansky made yet

test sponsored by the American
Cancer Society through the

The First and Second Graders
were asked to draw pictures that
would encourage people to stop
smoking on Smoke-Out day on
Nov. 21. The concept behind this
day is that if one is able to stop
smoking for an entire day then
perhaps they can extend it for an
entire week.month, year, life ..
The students were most
creative with their interpreta-
tions. Some of them drew broken
hearts symbolizing the hurt that
smoking often causes. Others
drew blackened lungs and teeth.
Obviously, the students, even at
six and seven, are well aware of
the danger of smoking.
Over 1,000 students entered
this contest in South County.

FBI Asked To Take Part In Brooklyn Vandalism Case
State Assemblyman Dov
Hikind said Sunday he has
asked the FBI to help local
police track down rock-
throwing vandals who
smashed the windows of
more than 20 Jewish-owned
shops in two assults over a
two-week period in heavily
Orthodox populated areas of
Eight shops were hit in the ear-
ly hours of last Saturday morning,
five in the Boro Park section and
three in the adjoining Midwood
section of Flatbush. Early on
Saturday, Nov. 9, 13 shop win-
dows were smashed in Boro Park.
Mayor Edward Koch said the city
would offer a $10,000 reward for
information "leading to the arrest
of the people responsible."
PEGGY TISHMAN. president
of the Jewish Community Rela-
tions Council of New York, an
nounced that "in order to ex-
pedite the work of police, we are
hereby offering a $5,000 reward
for information leading to the ar-
rest and conviction of the
perpetrators of these acts." The
police have set up a special
number for anyone having infor-
mation: (1718)-287-0311
Tishman said, "While there is
no clear indication of the motives
for these cowardly acts, our
outrage is in no way diminished.
We are determined to see that the
perpetrators are quickly ap-
prehended, and will work with
community leaders and police to
assure that every avenue is ex-
plored in order to put a stop to
these incidents."
Hikind. who represents these
districts said that he appealed to
the federal law enforcers to in-
vestigate the incidents for possi-
ble violators of civil rights. He
said this did not mean the com-
munity has lost confidence in the
police who were taking the in-
cidents "very seriously." But it is
clear the police need help, the
Assemblyman said.
THE SECOND rash of rock
throwing occurred despite a "very
heavy" police presence in the
streets of Boro Park. The
assailants were undetected.
Hikind said that in addition, the
community is seeking the help of
New York's two Senators, Daniel
Maynihan. Democrat, and Alfonse
D'Amato, Republican. He said
that Rabbi Israel Steinberg, direc-
tor of community relations in the
New York State Division of
Human Rights, has solicited the
aid of State Commissioner of
Human Rights Douglas White.
Rabbi Israel Moshowitz, special
assistant to the Governor for com-
munity affairs, is also actively
Hikind pointed out that the two
incidents were similar and wefe
almost certainly the work of the
same vandals who seem to be
motivated by anti-Semitism.
Although no graffiti. slogans or
swastikas were left behind and
there were no annonymous
telephone calls to the media claim-
ing credit, the attacks were clear-
ly aimed at Jews. Hikind said.
Non-Jewish shops in both
neighborhoods were unharmed.
HE SAID he was convinced the
vandals were outsiders Hikind. a
Boro Park residnel. said there
have been no racial tensions or in
cidents in the neighborhood that
might have led to a vendetta. The
earlier vandalism was confined to
a K)-block strip along 13th
Avenue, the main shopping center
of Boro Park.
In the latest incident, two shops
were hit on 13th Avenue, three on
16th Avenue, including an Israeli-
owned restaurant, and three on
Avenue J between Coney Island
Avenue and East 16th Street in
Midwood. the main shopping
center of that neighborhood.
Hikind said the FBI has promis
ed to study the incidents to deter-
mine if violations of civil rights oc-
curred. A determination is re-
quired befor the federal agency
can officially enter the case.

Along the way, he invested in a
300-acre resort called Point
Sebago, in Maine.
Three years ago Larry and his
wife Anna were vacationing in
Quebec, Canada. They watched
the only U.S. television station
received there, and saw a pro-
gram which highlighted a camp
program in Georgia for children
stricken with cancer and other life
threatening diseases. The idea

who are ill their families need
all the support and assistance they
can get as well. So in the summer
of 1984 the Goulds treated more
than 40 families of children with
cancer to a free week at what they
called Camp Sunshine. The
children were able to live, play
and interact like "normal" kids
which is one of the things they
most surely want and need and
their parents and siblings had
much of the pressure relieved.
The program was so successful,
and the children and their families
so grateful, that the Goulds decid-
ed to expand it In the following
summer, in 1985, they accon,
modated a total of more than 200
children, in different session* A I!
gratis, with all services and meals
In the summer of 1985, an inter-
national portion of the Camp Sun
shine program was also initiated,
when 18 children suffering
various forms of cancer were
brought from Israel, accompanied
by three doctors and three nurses.

"I would have liked to bring
their families as well, but the cost
would have really been pro-
hibitive," says Larry Gould,
almost apologetically. EI-AI, the
Israel national airline company,
provided the air transport and
gave the children EI-AI T-Shirts.
Their U.S. vacation included, in
addition to the Camp Sunshine
stay, three days in New York and
four days in Orlando, PL, visiting
Disneyworld. There was also a
session for 11 children suffering
from kidney disease.
The Goulds have forged ahead
with an expanded program: a year
ago, Larry started the Point
Sebago Camp Sunshine Founda-
tion, to enable the program to
grow. For 1986, the Goulds plan
to accommodate 400 young pa-
tients, in four sessions during
June and September. In addition.

Larry had started the foundation.
"It is a natural growth," he in

than we can satisfy, but I believe
in letting things grow naturally."
His actions belie his words: Larry
has already inspired plans for such
a camp in Israel, and has been
talking with resort owners in
Orlando and in the Mid West
about allocating time in their
resorts for similar programs. He
already has 1,600 members enroll-
ed in the foundation (membership
is a contribution of $25).
In fiscal 1985 (year ending Oct.
81) the foundation raised $73,724,
from memberships and donations.

Boschwitz, Hawkins Champion
AIPAC At Local Affair
Relations between the U.S. and
Israel are better than they have
ever been, and much of the credit
for this goes to the only official
pro-Israel lobby in Washington -
It is obvious that Senators Rudy
Boschwitz (R-Minn.) and Paula
Hawkins of Florida share this
view the two came together
with some 100 guests to a cocktail
party in Del-Aire to drum up sup-
port for AIPAC.
Tom Dine, executive director of
the lobby, said his organization
had grown in the past four years
from 8,000 members to more than
50,000, in all 50 states. AIPAC is
a domestic lobby, he emphasized,
supported solely by private con-
tributions which are NOT tax-
deductible. As such, it represents
the views of its American
members, who are pro-Israel
hut not necessarily those of the
government currently in power in
Dine said there is a tendency to
onfuse AIPAC with the political
1'ACs which generally support a
;*>litical candidate or incumbent.
Unlike the PACs. he pointed out,
AIPAC does not donate money to
any individual or organization,
nor does it fund candidates.
It does provide up-to-date infor-
mation and analyses to its
membership, and to the legislative
and executive branches of the
government. It publishes papers
and publications on U.S.-Israel
relations and current issues, sends
speakers around the country to in-
form and mobilize grassroots sup-
|>ort, and encourages political in-

there was actually an organized
"gang" perhaps motivated by
political, anti-religious attitudes
which worked with people "in
the higher-up echelons" who en
couraged their actions.
In 1967 a public inquiry
commisson did investigate
342 complaints of such miss-
ing children, and found that
316 had died, four had been
adopted and 22 were unac-
counted for. But of those
that were found to have
died, some of the gravesites
were not to be found. (The

money, as the lion's share of the
foreign aid package. However,
Boschwitz said, U.S. spends a
great deal less in defending its in-
terests in the Middle East in-
cluding the substantial amounts it
allocates in aid to Israel AND to
the Arab contries like Egypt
than it does in Europe and the Far
East, where it spends more than
10 times as much. The difference
is that in the latter cases, it
spends the money through
defense appropriations rather
than in the foreign aid bill.
Senator Hawkins warmed the
hearts of the guests with a story
about a Mormon religious leader
who travelled in the Holy Land
100 years ago, and "even before
Herzl" forecast the realization of
the Zionist dream when he offered
a prayer that the Jewish People be
reestablished in their own land.

An all-out six-week campaign to
mobilize payments for all unpaid
Israel Bond commitments as part
of a special effort to provide jobs
and to aid Israel's economic
recovery has been announced by
Harold Kay. Cash Chair of the
Israel Bond campaign in South
This campaign began with a
Sunday morning phone-a-thon
with several volunteers making
calls. Although most pledges have
been honored, the cash campaign
works toward closing the books on
all pledges made during the
1984-85 season which ended Aiur.
Kay pointed out that Israel has
made drastic cuts in its national
budget in order to reduce the
trade deficit and slow inflation. In
addition, the people have taken a
20 percent cut in their real wages.
There has also been a loss of jobs.
"These painful sacrifices are
now showing results," Kay noted.
"As Israel passes through this
transition period, its friends in
this community can express their
unity with the nation's efforts to
recover economically by providing
maximum Bond proceeds for jobs
and continued development."
By their prompt payment for
Israel Bonds, friends of Israel in
South County can be "true and ac-
tive partners with the people of
Israel, as the nation seeks to over-
come its current economic pro-
blems," Kay said.
Since the birth of the Bond
Organization in 1951, more than
$7.3 billion in Bond proceeds have
been provided for the economic
development of the nation. More
than $4 billion in matured Israel
Bonds have been repaid by the
Government of Israel.
Funds mobilized through the
sale of Israel Bonds securities
have been utilized to strengthen
every facet of Israel's economic
infrastructure, including energy,
industry, transportation,
agriculture, high technology in-
dustry, communications, and new

House Releases Scathing Report
The controversy surroun-
ding the mailings of a
speech early this year by an
Education Department of-
ficial which referred to
America as a "Christian na-
tion," continued last week
with the release of a
scathing report on the mail-
ings* subsequent
developments by a House
subcommittee unit.
The report was initiated by
Rep. Patricia Schroeder (D., Col.),
chairperson of the House Civil
Service Subcommittee, after a
private citizen had sent a letter to
an Education Department official
protesting the distribution of and
ideas expressed in a speech by
Robert Billings, then an Educa-
tion Department official in
THE PRIVATE citizen. Gerald
Leib of Mountain View, Calif., had
written a postcard to Thomas
Tancredo, the Secretary of
Education's regional represen-
tative in Denver. In the postcard,
Leib, a Iwayer, protested Tan-
credo's distribution, on Education
Department stationery, of the
Billings speech, sent to 328 Chris-
tian schools.
The Billings speech referred to
the United States as "this Chris-
tian nation" and asked "what has
happened to our Christian system
of values?" The speech
precipitated public outrage and
the Education Department
apologized for its distribution. But
Leib wrote to Tancredo in Denver
that "the U.S. is not now and
never has been 'a Christian na-
tion.' A similar postcard was
sent to Billings who has since left
the Education Department.
While Leib never received a
response from Tancredo nor a
response from a later letter to
Tancredo expressing concern over
this "apparent govern mentally-
connected attempt to 'save me' "
Leib did get a reply from a
Treasury Department official,
Christopher Sundseth, the son of
Carolyn Sundseth, associate
director for Public Liaison at the
White House with responsibility
for evangelical and fundamen-
talist Christians and conservative
SUNDSETH. in his response to
Leib's postcard, wrote, "I have
seen the letter sent to Tom Tan-
credo at the Department of
Education ... We are indeed, like
it or not, 'a Christian nation' .. .
This country was founded by
Christians who were escaping the
same kind of small-minded tripe
you espouse."

The letter advised Leib that he
is "a truly amazing, but pathetic
creature" and ended with the
postscript, "when you die, you
will be giving account to Jesus
Christ, your creator, who happens
himself to be a Christian. I hope
you are prepared ."
Sundseth, who was laid off from
the Treasury Department just a
day after the subcommittee's
report was released, had told
reporters that he "and a small
network of friends in government
jobs" are involved in a letter
writing campaign to "anti-
religious zealots."
appears to be coincidental with
the timing of the report's release.
He had been informed last month
that his position was being ter-
minated. Sundseth was given a
letter Oct. 5 saying his position
was being cut because of a reduc-
tion in force in the Treasury
Department's international af-
fairs office. A follow-up letter was
sent on Nov. 5. Sundseth's last
day on the job was Nov. 15.

Large-scale dismissals of State
employees and civil servants is the
price Israel is paying for economic
recovery. The Treasury last week
proposed a budget of $21.2 billion
for the next fiscal year which in-
corproated a $500 million reduc-
tion in government expenditures.
If it is adopted, another 5,000
civil servants will be fired in addi-

a result of a Cabinet decision last
July on measures to stabilize the
economy. Only 900 of them were
