WASHINGTON (JTA) The United States and
I are discussing military and economic aid proposals
be 1987 fiscal year which begins next Oct. 1, the State
tment said.
But State Department deputy spokesman Charles Red-
Irefused to disclose the amount of aid under discussion.
(expect to have an agreement which takes into account
Israel's aid requirements and U.S. budgetary
lints." Redman said.
IE WOULD not comment on a report from Jerusalem
Israel has requested $3.5 billion in economic assistance
be 1987 fiscal year. The report said the aid request was
kited to Thomas Pickering, the U.S. Ambassador in
by Israeli Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai.
srael is receiving this year, $1.2 billion in economic aid
lother $1.8 billion in military aid, all of it as a grant.

A new wave of anti-Semitism
was feared, especially because the
date of the first rock-throwing
coincided with the 47th anniver-
sary of KristaUnaeht, November
9, 1938, when rampaging Nazis

homes, businesses and

EIGHTY-FOUR soldiers were

wood and synthetic materials,
when the blaze broke out at 1 a.m.
and swept through the structure
in minutes. Most managed to
Heat prevented rescuers from
entering the barracks until later
in the morning when the remains
of the eight dead soldiers were
found. The Defense Ministry has
named a special team to in-
vestigate the disaster. It will
report to Chief of Staff. Gen.
Moshe Levy.
Meanwhile, anger was
generated in the Knesset when a
member of the Orthodox Shas
Party contended that the tragedy
was divine retribution for the lack
of relitrious observance in Israel.
If convinced on all counts, the
suspect, Gary Dworkin, could be
sentenced to up to 18 years in
prison, according to the DA's of-
fice. One of the misdemeanor
counts is violation of civil rights
and discrimination because
Dworkin's alleged vandalism was
carried out specifically against
Jewish property.
HE WAS arrested at his Boro
Park home Dec. 9 and reportedly
confessed. Capt. Donald
Bromberg, commander of the
New York Police Department bias
unit which was assigned to the
case because of its anti-Semitic
implications, said Dworkin "is
Jewish and has a history of
psychological problems."
He is accused of throwing rocks
through the windows of 13
Jewish-owned shops during the
night of Nov. 9-10 along a seven-
block strip of 13th Avenue, the
main shopping center of Boro
Park where the population is 80
percent Jewish, mostly ultra-
Orthodox and Hassidic.
He is accused of repeating the
act two weeks later, during the
night of Nov. 23, when five more
shop windows in Boro Park were
smashed and three shop windows
on Avenue J in the adjoining Mid-
wood section of Flatbush. also
heavily populated by Orthodox
BROMBERG noted in a
prepared statement that Dworkin
came under suspicion as a result
of information supplied by
members of the public and that his
arrest was based on that informa-
tion and on statements by the
suspect. He said police found
rocks in the trunk of Dworking's
car similar to the rocks thrown
through the shop windows.
The vandalism gave rise to ten-
sion in the tightly-knit Jewish
communities of Boro Park and

inflation has been reduced con-
siderably since June; unemploy-
ment climbed only marginally to
eight percent (though in Israeli
terms this is considered very high)
in July and August, and declined a
fraction in September; and the
current budget deficit stands at 30
percent, well below that of 1984.
Also, tax revenues have increased
by $400 million.
The program undertaken by the
government, Sadka explained,
consisted of reducing public spen-
ding by $1.5 billion; this was
achieved, inter alia, by cutting
down government work force by
three percent, and eliminating
much of the subsidies paid by the
government for basic com-
modities and foods, leading to a
rise in their prices. These steps
were taken along with measures
to increase ("deepen" in Israeli
terminology) tax revenues and
devaluating the currency. In order
to prevent this from spurring fur-
ther inflation, the government
froze the traditional cost-of-living
adjustments for a period of four
months, and arranged for these
adjustments to be partial subse-
quently, so that the full buying

The attacks in Brooklyn were
carried out on Sabbath night when
the streets of the Orthodox
neighborhoods were deserted.
The rocks apparently were
thrown from a passing car. The
windows of non-Jewish shops
were spared. But one ingredient
common to anti-Semitic van-
dalism was missing: there were no
swastikas or anti-Semitic graffiti
and no anonymous telephone calls
to the police or the media boasting
of the deeds.
Nevertheless, New York State
Assemblyman Dov Hikind, a Boro
Park resident who represents the
district, said that he was "95 per-
cent sure" that anti-Semitism
motivated at least the first attack
because it coincided with the
KristaUnaeht anniversary. Hikind
said he was "convinced that Mr.
Dworkin was not responsible for
the first attack."
But New York City Councilman
Noach Dear, who also represents
the district, told the JTA he
believes Dworkin was responsible
but that he could not have acted
alone given the wide area over
which the windows were smashed
and the size and weight of the
Dear said he asked police to con-
tinue the investigation and to con-
tinue their tight surveillance in
the neighborhoods lest would-be
vandals take Dworkin's arrest as
a signal that it is now safe to com-
mit similar acts.
Supreme Court Snubs Appeal
Of Ex-Nazi's Deportation Order
The Supreme Court Monday
refused to hear an appeal of
a deportation order from
John Demjanjuk, a
Ukrainian-born war
criminal charged with the
murder of 900.000 Jews at
the Treblinka death camp
during World War II.
The court's action is separate
from a pending petition for review
of an extradition request from
Israel for Demjanjuk. Israel has
sought his extradition for two
years based on a 1963 extradition
treaty it has with the U.S.
IF THE extradition order is im-
plemented, Demjanjuk would be
the first Nazi war criminal ever
extradited to Israel for trial and
could face the death penalty if
found guilty of war crimes. Israel
tried and executed war criminal
Adolf Eichmann in 1961 after he
was captured by Israeli agents in
Buenos Aires.
Demjanjuk, a 65-year-old
retired automobile worker from
Cleveland, was stripped of his
U.S. citizenship in 1981, after be-
ing charged by the Justice Depart-
ment with having lied about his
past activities when he entered
the U.S. in 1952.
A District Court in Cleveland
confirmed his identity as the
brutal death camp guard known
as "Ivan the Terrible" to the in-
mates of Treblinka where he
allegedly tortured Jews and
operated the gas chambers.
HE WAS identified by Jewish
survivors of Treblinka and by a
former SS man, now a West Ger-
many resident, who knew him at
the Polish death camp. His
lawyers have contended that their
client is a victim of fraudulent

power of the devalued currency
would not be restored (which
would eliminate the effect of the
higher prices). In real terms,
wages thus declined by some 15
percent to 16 percent.
The economic crisis confronting
Israel started in the wake of the
1973 Yom-Kippur War. Economic
growth declined as domestic in-
vestment was down, and the
government, trying to make up
for huge deficits, competed with
investors in borrowing money.
This led to spiralling interest
rates, higher prices, and increased
printing of money by the govern-
ment which meant spiralling
Part of the deficit was covered
by foreign aid, but much of it had
to be covered by borrowing; the
balance-of-payments was bad, so
the government had tried to
achieve a balance by permitting
inflation to rise as budget cuts
were made and subsidies were
cut. leading to higher prices.
These higher prices were compen-
sated for. to wage earners, by
wage increases in the form of
cost-of-living adjustments (linked
to the inflation) but this caused
even higher prices and more con-
sumption, and the economy was
thus locked in a vicious cycle.
In implementing the current
program, the government has had
to overcome the pressures to con-
stantly adjust for price rises by
permitting wages to be correspon-
dingly raised. This, along with
reduced spending as much as it
hurts the Israeli public in the form
of reduced wages, increased
unemployment and cuts in social
services is the essential part of
the austerity program.
Prof. Sadka, at 39, is one of the
youngest economic experts to
chair a department in Israel. He
has just ended a sabbatical spent
as visiting professor at University
of Michigan in Ann Harbor. Prof.
Sadka received his PhD at MIT
and has been with Tel Aviv
University since 1975.

A 'Very Good' Message
For Your Children
Children may often hear
"Clean up your room!" "Didn't
you do your homework yet'"
"Turn down that music!" "You're
stupid!" "Don't touch that, you'll
break it!" "You're on the phone
too much!" "Pick up those toys!"
Shut up and go to bed!" "Why
can't you ever listen!" "Turn off
that TV this minute!"
Parents can easily focus on
what their children are not doing.
Often it is the misbehavior which
gets the attention. Children need
to get attention for the responsi
ble behavior as well. Children
thrive in an environment of love
where they receive pats, smiles
and approval. It would be a shame
to overlook those behaviors and
only comment on the undesirable
ones. If misbehaviors get most of
the attention in your household,
while the responsible behaviors
get overlooked, it will increase the
occurance of the miabehaviori.
After all. negative attention is
better than no attention at all.
Responsible behaviors get
strengthened in response to "very
good." There are 100's of ways to
express "very good" to your child.
Here are some suggestions:
I'm proud of the way you worked
You've just about ynt it'........

That's better than ever.
You're doing beautifully!
I appreciate how nicely you clean-

Keep on trying!

Good thinking!
In this, the last in the aeries on
year-end tax planning questions in
regard to charitable contribu-
tions, we will explore the in-
tricacies of the Alternative
Minimum Tax.
The Alternative Minimum Tax
was enacted primarily as a way to
make well-to-do taxpayers pay at
least a minimum tax. Such tax-
payers usually avoided or minimiz-
ed payment of taxes through
various tax shelter techniques
(such as accelerated depreciation
deductions). The Alternative
Minimum Tax, in effect, requires
the taxpayer to pay a minimum 20
perc ent tax on his income,
without taking into account many
of the deductions which allowed
the taxpayer to minimize his tax
in the first place.
For example, assume a tax-
payer has $100,000 in income in a
tax year, but offsets this income
with $100,000 worth of deprecia-
tion deductions. As far as the
regular income tax is concerned,
he would not owe any taxes
(because the $100,000 in income is
offset by the $100,000 in deprecia-
tion deductions). However, the
Alternative Minimum Tax might
come into play, requiring him to
pay a 20 percent tax on the
$100,000 in income, without tak-
ing into consideration many of his
other deductions, including a por-
tion of the accelerated deprecia-
tion deductions. In this manner,
the taxpayer is forced to pay a
minimum tax.
Under current law, even if a
taxpayer is subject to the Alter-
native Minimum Tax, he still gets
the advantage of deducting the
value of the charitable gifts that
he has made during the year. For
example, if the taxpayer described
above made a $10,000 gift to
charity, he would have a $10,000
deduction in determining his
Alternative Minimum Tax.
This is true whether the gift is
made in cash or in the form of ap-
preciated property, such as stock
or real estate.
As we discussed in prior col-
umns, when a taxpayer gives a
gift of appreciated property to a
charity, he get* the benefit of a
tax deduction for the full fair
market value of the property,
without having to pay a capital
gains tax on the amount of the ap-
preciation. Using an example
from a prior column, if the tax-
payer paid $2,000 for certain
stock and gave it away to a charity
when it was worth $10,000, he
would be entitled to the full
$10,000 deduction and would not
have to pay capital no, i

'Tradition Time'
A Local Jewish Radio Show
Rbbi Richard D. Agier
Relatively speaking, Charles
Silberman may be right in calling
our present age a "Golden" one.
But to be a Jew has always re-
quired more than the standard
amount of vigilance, even in times
when the clear and present
danger seems remote. Granted
our achievements and the level of
our acceptance, we will require
more and not less of that com-
modity in the forseeable future.
For a while, until last year,
there was a radio show in Palm
Beach County devoted to Jewish
music. It was carried by the public
radio station, and although the
Jewish population in the area was
rapidly increasing, the show was
not gaining listeners. Last year
the station dropped it.
When people at the South Coun-
ty Jewish Federation learned
about this, officials of the Federa-
tion contacted the radio station
and attempted to interest it in
planning a radio show with a
variety content, magazine style
which would be professionally pro-
duced and would attract a large
listening audience. The Federa-
tion was not successful; the sta-
tion's officials were warm and
polite, but apart from hinting
broadly that there might be a
chance should the Federation
choose to allocate a substantial
amount of money, it was clear
that public radio was not in-
terested in doing anything with a
clearly ethnic target audience.
(Public television was mention-
ed as a better possible alternative;
but later, when the Council of
Jewish Federations began to pro-
duce a series of monthly half-hour
magazines of a high quality, and a
sample program was sent to the
public television heads, the
response was no mrf
favorable... However, last
month an enterprising
young man, a senior at
FAU, took matters into his
own hands and started a
one-hour Jewish variety
show on private radio
from noon to 1 p.m. on Sun-
days, on WVCG 1080-AM.
The young man, Ben Zohar
(Stern), has had terrific
response, and is planning to
expand his program to two
hours starting next week.
Ben calls his program "Tradi
tion Tune." He uaea his own ex-
tensive record collection for selec-
tions, and accepts requests. His
program is live, but requests can
only be played in the following
week (he cannot keep his entire
collection of records at the studio
with him). His music runs the
gamut from Yiddish folk, through
Israeli, cantorial, Haasidic and
klezmer type songs.
Ben's program can be heard
throughout the Gold Coast area,
from the keys to Fort Pierce. He
hopes to be able to obtain enough
advertising to justify his invest-
ment in the radio time he purchas-
ed to get the show going and if
the audience response is as exten-
sive as reported, he should have
no trouble.
Ben, 21, is a native of Connec-
ticut and a graduate of the Miami
Beach Hebrew Academy. He has
studied for a time at Bar-Ilan
University in Ramat Can, Israel,
and is now completing his BA pro-
gram at FAU in Advertising and

Page 4 The Jewish Floridian of South County/Friday, December 27, 1985
The clanking and drilling from a
car repair shop finds its way into
the Tel Aviv studio of the Kol
U'Demama dance company,
located above the garage. The
clamor annoys director Moahe
Efrati as well as many of the per-
formers who are trying to concen-
trate on the tempo of the classical
music. But half of the dancers are
undistracted by the commotion
and continue dancing in perfect
rhythm. Tiiey are deaf.
Efrati's company Kol
U'Demama (Sound and Silence) is
the only professional dance com-
pany in the world that combines
both hearing and deaf performers.
The deaf dancers know when to
move by body signals, such as a
tap on the back or a nod, or by
cues transmitted to their knees
through knocks on the wooden
The system was developed by
Efrati. He shrugs off any sugges-
tion that professional training
with the deaf is necessary to bring
them into the world of hearing
dancers. His formula for teaching
them is simple. He talks normally
to the deaf dancers while il-
lustrating the steps. Sometimes,
he lifts his fingers to indicate
numbers. They, in turn, watch his
lips intently and imitate his
"All you need is a special spirit.
The banging on the floor is simply
a meeting point between the deaf
and hearing. Two worlds meet
and communicate with each
other," said the curly-haired
Efrati after a long day of
The 15-member company was
founded five years ago when
Efrati merged his company of
deaf dancers "Demama," with his
hearing troupe "Efrati." The
company is jointly funded by the
Israel Deaf Assocition, the Kin
neret Foundation and the Doron
To ai server, it is impossible
to discern which dancers are deaf
as the company performs modern
ballet pieces. The distinction can
only be made when the deaf
dancers perform alone on stage
without music.
Choreographed by Efrati, the
dances are based on Biblical
themes, philosophical dilemmas,
and the struggle between the deaf
and hearing communities to
understand each other.
Uzi Bouzaglo, one of the deaf
dancers, recalled how inhibited he
was growing up in a soundless
world. As a child, he saw Efrati
perform with the Bat-She va dance
company, in which he was then
the principal performer.
"I got very excited. But I never
thought I could express myself
like that. Years later, I met Moahe
and he encouraged me," said the
29-year-old Bouzaglo.

Bouzaglo. who is also s sculptor,
recalled that before joining the
company he had found it difficult
to meet hearing people. Now he
has not only developed personal
relationships with the hearing, but
has had opportunities to meet and
exchange views with celebrities in
the art world while traveling
abroad with the company.
"This has opened up so much for
me," he said. Many of the deaf
performers, like Bouzaglo, work
in other professions such as
diamonds and mechanical drawing
to supplement their incomes.
For Gabi Barr, one of the hear-
ing dancers working with Efrati
for the past 11 years, performing
with the deaf has made her more
aware of her on-stage work. "You
can't be out of count or out of
rhythm. Concentration is ex-
tremely important," she said.
Michal Gross, s novice with Kol
U'Demama who is one of the bear-
ing dancers, finds the responsibili
ty of signalling the deaf a bit of a
strain. Nevertheless, she feels the
experience is gratifying.
"We're closer, since we must
depend on helping one another.
I've learned to see not only myself
on stage, but to share what I'm
doing with others. This isn't
typical of most companies," she
Efrati's patience during rehear-
sals is undoubtedly a major reason
why his troupe has become such s
success and an inspiration to the
deaf, who often have coordination
problems. He estimates that it
takes from five to seven years of
training with him until the deaf
master the precision in balance
needed for professional dance.
Amnon Damti. the company's
principal deaf peformer, finds that
dance has given him new direction
in his thinking and new outlets to
express his feelings. Damti was a
metal worker on a moahav before
studying dance with Efrati 12
years ago. "Now I talk with my
body," said the muscular dancer
whose speech is slurred.
Damti "talks with his body" not
only on the dance floor, but off-
stage as well. He enjoyed im-
itating Efrati on a particularly
tense day. The dance master grin
ned broadly as Damti mimicked
him shuffling papers and throw-
ing his arms into the air.
"Dance has given all of the deaf
much more confidence," mused
Efrati as he watched his star per-
former with a sense of pride.
"Now they look st life with their
heads up, not down."
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The following is a poem written
by a Delray Beach resident,
dedicated to "all the beautiful
nostalgia of the beautiful elderly
ladies who mean so much to their
families." In particular, the writer
dedicated the poem to her mother,
92-year-old Loretta Rubin, a resi-
dent at the Morse Geriatric
Center in West Palm Beach.
What do you see nurses, what do
you see?
Are you thinking when you are
looking at me
A crabby old women, not very
Uncertain of habit, with far-away
I'll tell you who I am as I sit here
so still,
As I move st your bidding, as I eat
at your will,
I'm a small child of ten with a
father and mother,
Brothers and sisters, who love one
A young girl of sixteen with wings
on her feet,
Dreaming that soon now a lover,
she'll meet
A bridge soon at twenty my
heart gives a leap.
Remembering the vows that I pro-
mised to keep.
At twenty-five, now, I have young
of my own,
Who need me to build a secure,
happy home.
A woman of thirty, my young now
grow fast,
Bound to each other with ties that
should last.
At forty my youngsters have
grown and are gone,
But my husband's beside me to
see I don't mourn.
At fifty, once more babies play
'round my knee,
Again we know children, my loved
one and me.
I remember the joys, I remember
the pain,
And I'm loving and living hJ
I think of the years all
gone too fast,
And accept the stark fai
nothing can last.
So open your eyes, open ,),
Not a crabby old worn*

ing a genuine champion of peace
and freedom, the world-renowned
Andrei Sakharov.
Dr. Lown sounded more than a
little defensive when accepting
the award. "We are not indif-
ferent to other human rights and
hard-won civil liberties," he said.
He could have fooled a lot of us.
Has Dr. Lown or his organization
ever criticized his Soviet col-
league, Dr. Chazov, for having
signed a letter denouncing Dr.
Sakharov? Has it ever protested
the harassment of Dr. Sakharov,
his exile to the closed city of
Gorky, and the general persecu-
tion of independent peace
movements in the Soviet Union?
Dr. Lown would seem to have
other priorities, as his statement
makes clear when read in context:
"We are not indifferent to other
human rights and hard-won civil
liberties. But first we must be able
to bequeath to our children .
The most fundamental of all
rights which preconditions all
others the right of survival."
This philosophy used to be called
appeasement before its vast
dangers and utter futility were
demonstrated by its bitter fruit:
the most destructive war in
human history and the first war
in which nuclear weapons were
To put survival before liberty
may be only to endanger both.
Freedom is not the enemy of
peace but its support. It is so
much easier to march a tyrannized
population off to war. See the
unending blooshed in
Afghanistan. Dr. Lown needs to
rethink his priorities for the
sake of peace.
As for Dr. Chazov's remarks on
accepting the Nobel Prize, they
were the kind of empty par-
tyspeak that could not help but be
offensive to anyone acquainted
with the barest outlines of his rise
in the Soviet hierarchy and Andrei
Sakharov's fall.
Fanciers of irony will find Dr.
Chazov's quoting Antoine de
Saint-Exupery delectable: "Why
should we hate each other? We are
all in one. sharing the same
planet, a crew of the same ship. It
is good when dispute between dif-
ferent civilizations gives birth to
something new and mature, but it
is outrageous when they devour
each other."
What better word than
"devour" for what Soviet society
has done to its finest, including
but certainly not limited to Dr.
Sakharov. When they attempted
to make this same reasonable
argument within Soviet society
they weren't handed any peace
prizes. They were branded as
dissidents and shipped off to men-
tal hospitals, labor camps, closed
cities, exile .
Comrade Chazov's speech was
little more than a rundown of the
Soviet Union's present position on
nuclear weapons, now that it has
taken the lead in various aspects
of the arms race. Accordingly, the
Soviets want to declare said race
over by solemn treaty. Solemn to
others, at least. "From the first
days of our movement," declared
Comrade Chazov, "we suggested
our prescription for survival,
which envisaged a ban on tests of
nuclear weapons, a freeze, reduc-
tion and eventual elimination of
nuclear weapons .
This was much the same ap-
proach taken decades ago by An-
drei Sakharov, dean of Soviet
nuclear scientists, full member of
the Soviet Academy of Sciences at
32, recipient of the Stalin Prize
and three orders of Socialist
Labor, and "father of the Soviet
hydrogen bomb." When he began
to develop suspicions about the
kind of masters he was serving,
Dr. Sakharov took his first steps
toward Gorky. That happened in
the late 1950s, when he appealed,
unsuccessfully, to the Soviet
leadership to respect a ban on
nuclear testing, to freeze the
development of such
superweapons, and strive instead
to reduce and perhaps eliminate
those weapons. That is the man
Comrade Chazov and other ap-
paratchiks now denounce, when
they are not accepting Nobel
"True to the Hippocratic Oath,
we cannot keep silent..." Y.
Chazov said at Oslo, when of
course his whole career has
depended on his keeping silent
about human rights, particularly
those of A. Sakharov.
This is the less than shining
record of Dr. Lown's collaborator
in the Soviet Union. His co-
honoree, his distinguished embar-
rassment. No wonder there has
not been a recent Nobel Prize win-
ner who sounded more defensive,
or needed to.

She seldom hears from Josef
because prisoners in isolation at
Chistopol Prison, located more
than 1,000 miles from Moscow,

Josef is in very serious trouble.
He hss been convicted of

only teaching Moscow Jews how
to read Hebrew.
Josef was sentenced to seven
years in a Soviet labor camp, to be
followed by five years of internal
exile outside Moscow, his
hometown. If lucky, he will be
released in 1994 when he is 62.

I moved to Boca Raton on July

not even know my way around
town, having only been to Boca
once before, for one afternoon, in
early 1983. It was exciting. I had
chosen Boca Raton as a place to
live, as well as a location for my
Florida office. I am a tax attorney
by background, in the investment
business. I was attracted to Boca
Raton because it is a fast-growing
area offering a quality of life that
is very appealing to me.
Not knowing anyone in Boca,
and not being involved in the com-
munity created a void in my life
that had to be filled. I sought out
the local Jewish Federation and
met Rabbi Bruce Warshal who im-
mediately appointed me to two
committees. I started to meet peo-
ple and found the South County
Jewish Federation to be young in
years, but not young in the ages of
its members.

Metzenbaum, "but I am especially
pleased to see so many young peo-
ple involved."
Chairing the event were
RocheUe Levy and Sylvia Malvin,
who agreed that the event could
only be a success with community
participation. "It was a personally
rewarding experience to chair the
gala for two years," said RocheUe
as she paaaed the baton to Nancy
and Robert Diamond and Mitzi
and Craig Donoff, who will plan
the Gala for December 14, 1986.
Of course, when Marianne
Bobick announced the Federa-
tion's purchase of a million-dollar
note, the two tables of Hamlet
guests were especially proud it
was eight couples from Hamlet
who made that purchase possible
by paying the interest spread of
$25,000 over the five-year life of
the note.
Clarice and Ben Pressner,
assisted by Sylvia Salzberg and
Mildred Grossman, undertook the
job of reservations and menu plan-
ning. Mitzi and Craig Donoff
received a leadership award in ap-
preciation for hosting an elegant
pre-Gala party. St. Andrews, The
Hamlet, Del-Aire, Estancia. and
Boca Pointe communities were
well represented.
"The entire evening was elec-
tric," said Sylvia Malvin and as
calls came in describing the
wonderful time people had, the se-
cond annual Gala will truly oe 'A
Night to Remember with Israel
as the winner!
It seems to me that more and
more people are conscious of the
nutritional value of the food they
eat. Cookbooks that give an em-
phasis on a "healthful" way of
eating are proliferating, and
rightly so. I know I have become
concerned about the food my fami-
ly eats cholesterol, additives,
etc. A sign of age? Not neceasari
ly, as many young people are into
macrobiotics and other different
methods of eating. The following
vegetarian recipe is very tasty;
served with an extra vegetable it
makes a good and satisfying meal.
3 large red or green bell peppers
2 cups cooked brown rice
*h cup chopped silvered almonds
2 green onions (including tops)
thinly sliced
1 large tomato, peeled and
A cup chopped parsley
6 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
2 eggs lightly beaten
Vfc Tsp. each, Worcestershire and
dry basil
garlic powder and pepper
l.Cut peppers lengthwise,
through stems; remove stems and
wwds. Drop pepper halves into
boiling water, boil uncovered for
two minutes, then drain well.
2. Stir together rice, almonds,
green onions, tomato, parsley, one
cup of the cheese, eggs,
Worcestershire, basil and garlic
powder and pepper to taate.
Mound mixture into pepper shells.
Place peppers in a shallow baking
pan; sprinkle tops equally with re-
maining half cup cheese.
Bake uncovered in a 375
degrees oven for about 35 minutes
or until filling is very hot. Serves
three hungry people or 6
moderate eaters!

But Veniamin has never been in
prison. He and his wife hold good
jobs, though probably less than
what they are qualified to do. Ta-
tiana has become a fan of U.S.
black literature, and said she
wants to leave the Soviet Union so
she can travel the world and "go
see an English pub and
Shakespeare's home and examine
the world for myself."
Nevertheless, from time to time
the Bogomolnys are harassed by
the KGB. In 1976, their apart
ment was ransacked; some fur-
niture was damaged; their books
were destroyed; and red paint was
spilled on other possessions.
Veniamin keeps a diary of his
visitors, who arrive regularly
from the United States and
Western Europe. He said he is
sure the KGB will some day try to
confiscate the diary. Veniamin's
diary includes the name of retired
federal Judge Woodrow Seals, of
Houston, who visited Refuseniks
in Moscow and Leningrad a year
Tatiana said the Refuseniks she
knows represent a "special cross-
section of the people. The
Refuseniks have many friends and
help each other," she said. "Being
a Refuseniks requires some
courage and an active search for
adventure. Some Refuseniks say
every Refusenik is a hero. I think
it is an overstatement. But being a
Refusenik is a courageous thing to
Veniamin, who is interested in
medicine, adds, "All the
Refuseniks I know have
duodenum ulcers, high blood
pressure, depression and all the
stress diseases."
The Bogomolnys believe the
persecution of the Jewish in the
Soviet Union may actually have a
positive result. "The persecution
has created a revival of Judaism in
this country," said Veniamin.
"Many people have begun to
study their religious heritage."

much harassment as the Beguns

and his wife, Elena, continue to
work at meaningful jobs, though

the KGB wants the Refuseniks to
work and does not want them all
unemployed and under the threat

that they believe the more work

is difficult to see the future. It is
important to hear hope from
others outside one's situation.
Move To Lower Israel's Interest
On Debt to U.S. Abandoned
A move to reduce the in-
terest on existing Israeli
debts to the U.S. was aban-
doned last week in the
Senate as too costly in the
light of budgetary con-
straints. In a joint state-
ment, Sens. Daniel Inouye
(D.,Hi.) and Robert Kasten
(R., Wis.), who sponsored
the bill, said they were
withdrawing it is spite of
"widespread support"
because they were unable to
resolve technical questions
raised by the budget
Approved by the Senate Ap-
propriations Committee in Oc-
tober, the bill would have reduced
Israel's annual interest to five
percent, saving the financially
pressed Jewish State billions of
dollars over the next several
years. Many of the loans made to
Israel since the 1973 War
amounting to nearly $10 billion
carry a current annual interest
rate of approximately 10 to 11
THE PROPOSED legislation
had apparently met with reserva
tions not only from within the
Senate, but from among pro-
Israel activists, who questioned
the wisdom of further taxing the
U.S. budget when cuts are being
implemented elsewhere

Some lobbyists at the American
Israel Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC) reportedly feared that
passage of the bill could backfire
by fostering resentment over the
effective appropriations of further
American tax dollars to help the
Jewish State.
As Congress was considering an
aid package for Israel last spring,
for example, the National Associa-
tion of Arab Americans placed
radio advertisements playing up
the theme of American's being
asked to sacrifice while Israel was
raking in the U.S. taxpayer's
money. Congress ultimately ap-
proved the $3 billion aid package
for 1986, plus $1.5 billion in
emergency economic assistance.
RECENTLY, however
AIPAC's executive director,
Thomas Dine, came out publicly in
support of the Kasten-Inouye bill,
while acknowledging that the
issue "is a toughie "
There have been talks of revis-
ing the bill in a way that would
spread out the effects over a
longer period of time, such as ap-
plying the interest reduction only
to military loans for the first year.
But staff members at the offices
of Kasten and Inouye said the
Senators were unable to work out
an agreement with the Budget
In their statement last week,
the two Senators said they have

The Pittsburgh Jewish Chroni-
cle, for the past few weeks, has
been running a marvelous series
on the Jewish community in that
city sire, composition, religious
affiliation, and so on.
One of these articles, by ex-
ecutive editor Joel Rothman, ex-
amined how the Jewish communi-
ty in Pittsburgh (which is about
the same size as that of South
County) "measures up to com-
munal philanthropy."
Rothman quotes some in-
teresting statistics: Nationwide,
some one million Jewish
households with income between
$30,000 and $70,000 make no con
tribution at all to the Federa-
tion'l'JA campaign. These con-
stitute roughly half of the
American Jewish population. The
other half raise about $650
In Pittsburgh, about 62 percent
contributed to the campaign last
year, compared with 53 percent in
Philadelphia, and only 44 percent
in Washington. Some major cities
report contributors as low as 30
How does South County com-
pare? With a Jewish community of
about the same size (even larger,
when the "snowbirds" are includ-
ed), the number of contributors
here amount to about 55 percent
of the households; While the cam-
paign size has been growing it
was nearly $4-5 million last year
counting the funds for Operation
Moses that of Pittsburgh is well
over $9 million or twice the size.

Congressman Dan Mica, along
with other colleagues, took the op-
portunity earlier this month to
mark International Human Rights
Day by reading into the Congres-
sional Record his poignant
remarks about the abuse of human
rights by the Soviet Union in its
treatment of Jews.
Mica, who accused the Soviets
of anti-Semitism and an intent to
destroy Jewish culture, has
adopted a refusenik family, about
which he said the following:
"as a member of the Congres-
sional Coalition for Soviet Jews, I
have comitted myself to speaking
out to gain spiritual intellectual,
and physical freedom for Israel
Achildiaev and his family, now
-ienied the right to leave the
Soviet Union. Over six years ago.
the Achidiaev family submitted
applications for exit visas to leave
the Soviet Union. Although Israel
Achidiaev's parents were given
permission to leave. Israel and his
young family were refused exit
visas with no explanation given.
Israel Achildiaev, his wife, and
two young children, are victims of
Soviet persecution and in-
trasigence. The Soviet Union has
waged a relentless crusade
against human rights and dignity.
It is time for us to stand together
to show the Soviets that religious
freedom and the right of Jews to
repatriate to their homeland are
fundamental to U.S./U.S.S.R.
relations. I will continue to make
every effort to see that this cause
is not forgotten."

bombers in the Tabuc airfield on
the Aqaba Gulf increase* the
