Sister Ann Gillen
Large Crowd Join Nun, Rabbi,
In Plea For Soviet Jews
A Catholic nun, a rabbi,
and a group of Jewish Day
School pupils joined several
hundred people who packed
the Levis JCC auditorium
recently to register their
concern over the plight of
Soviet Jews.
Sister Ann Gillen of Chicago,
calmly and firmly, delivered a
clear messasge to the audience,
the USSR and the world: the
struggle for world peace cannot
be divorced from the struggle for
human rights. Sister Ann, ex-
ecutive director of the National
Interreligious Task Force on
Soviet Jewry, has devoted many
years to the cause of Soviet Jews
and human rights in the Soviet
Union. She has traveled to the
USSR several times and has met
with refuseniks there.
Rabbi Theodore Feldman of
B'nai Torah Congregation, presi-
dent of the Southeast Region of
the Rabbinical Assembly and
chairman of the South County
Rabbinic Association, gave a per-
sonal account of his arrest and
trial in Washington, recently,
along with 20 other rabbis, for
violating the law which forbids
demonstrators to approach closer
than 500 feet from the embassy.
Rabbi Feldman said he felt it was
necessary to break this law both
because it was discriminatory it
was applied to those
demonstrating against the Soviets
but not to those demonstrating
against South Africa's embassy
and because it became necessary
to call attention to the violation of
human rights by the Soviets.
The incident resulted in a har-
sher sentence than the par-
ticipants had expected, but was
well worth it, according to the
rabbi, because the judge was fair
enough to permit a two-hour pro-
cess in which the plight of Soviet
Jews was put on the court's
records. And, in fact, some of the
rabbis involved chose to serve the
15-day sentence rather than the

NEW YORK (JTA) -
Three Jewish Federations
Boston. New York and
Rhode Island have decid-
ed to divest themselves of
holdings in American com-
panies operating in South
Africa wnich are not com-
mitted in principle and prac-
tice to the equality of non-
white workers with their
white employees.
Equal treatment for non-white
employees in South Africa is the
basis of the Sullivan Principles, a
voluntary code of conduct for-
mulated in 1977 by Philadelphia
Minister Leon Sullivan. The Prin-
ciples call for equal pay for non-
whites, desegregation of the
workplace and the improvement
of the quality of life for non-whites
outside it. American companies
which are signatories to the Prin-
ciples are evaluated annually for
compliance with them, and for
progress toward their goals, by
the Arthur D. Little Company.
THE JEWISH Advocate of
Boston, in a front-page story by
Lawrence Harmon, reported that
the Combined Jewish Philan-
thropies of Greater Boston
together with Beth Israel Hospital
and Temple Israel voted Nov.
26 to divest themselves within a
year of securities in American
companies which are non-
signatories of the Sullivan Prin-
ciples or which received low
scores from the independent
evaluation by the Little Company.
The decision also directed the
three institutions to make future
investments in accordance with
these guidelines.
The combined total of the in-
vestment portfolio of the three
Boston institutions is $75 million,
of which approximately $3 million
about four percent for each is
invested in six companies which
received inadequate ratings for
compliance with the Sullivan Prin-
ciples. The institutions declined to
make known the names of the
companies. Although each institu-
tion maintains independent in-
vestment portfolios, a joint board
of managers oversees investment
practices for all three, according
to the Advocate article.
the CJP share of the total
amount invested is $37 million, of
which about $1,480,000 is affected
by the divestiture decision, Har-
mon reported. The size of Beth
Israel's portfolio is "roughly in
line" with that of the CJP, accor-
ding to information received by
the weekly newspaper, although
the hospital officially acknowledg-
ed only a portfolio of $17 million.
Temple Israel's investments total
$2 million.
THE "key driving force for
divestment'' in the Greater
Boston area, according to Har-
mon, is Justin Wyner, chairman of
the Board of Managers of Temple
Israel. "Many Jewish leaders have
talked about how terrible things
are in South Africa but never
looked at their own investments,"
Wyner told the Advocate. He
hoped, he said, that "all Jewish in-
stitutions will follow" the example
of the three Boston institutions
adding that "it's time for South
Africa to listen."
The Federation of Jewish
Philanthropies of New York an-
nounced the decision by its Board
of Trustees to have the FJP divest
itself of holdings in American
companies which do not subscribe

Barbie Trial Postponed
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) The
Supreme Court has
postponed the trial of Nazi
war criminal Klaus Barbie
which had been scheduled to
open Feb. 3.
France's highest court an-
nounced the postponenment of
the trial after it overturned a
lower court decision and after it
ruled that the 73-year-old former
Gestapo officer could be charged
with crimes against French
resistance fighters as well as
crimes against Jewish civilians
who he oredered deported to
death camps.
LEGAL EXPERTS said that
the trial could begin next March
or April, at the earliest, after the
upcoming legislative elections.
Although the postponement is
not linked to the elections, many
believe that the government
wanted to avoid a possible
political scandal during the pre-
election period. Barbie's lawyer,
Jacques Verges, has said that he
intends to shed light on the
betrayal of France's wartime
resistance leader, Jean Moulin, to
the Nazis. Verges has implied that
other resistance leaders informed
the Gestapo of Moulin'a
whereabouts for political reasons.
Some French newspapers
predicted that Barbie will never
be put on trial because of his poor
health. The Nazi war criminal is
under treatment for a variety of il-
lnesses at the Montluc Prison in
Lyon where he has it-en detained
since his expulsion from Bolivia in
Februarv. 1983.

Chai-Lights
of the
Jewish Community Day School
By ROBIN BRALOW
The South County Jewish Com-
munity Day School is sponsoring a
"Drawing By Chance." Three
hundred tickets will be sold with
the grand prize of $5,000 in cash
or a certificate for the equivalent
amount in gold. Said chairman
Oscar Kosh, "We feel this is an ex-
cellent fundraiser. The odds are
fantastic and it's very exciting.
Although most people will pro-
bablv prefer a cash prize, some
may choose an investment such as
gold so we thought we would leave
the option open."
There is more than one way to
win. The person who sells the win-
ning ticket will win $500. This is
the first time such a fundraiser is
being offered within Federation
auspices and tickets are going
fast. If you are interested in pur-
chasing a ticket or need further in-
formation phone Robin Bralow at
the Day School, 392-4779.
COMPUTER CLASSES
The Day School's computer in-
structor, Richard Kane, describes
his work in the following item:
Teaching computers presents
special problems in an environ-
ment of students with mixed
levels of experience. Some
students have had previous com-
puter work at the Day School or at
Camp Maccabee, while others
have had no computer experience
and possibly no desire to gain any.
In such a setting, I felt the best
plan to be individual instruction
based on something interesting.
Out of desperation came the
following. The classes I teach,
spanning 5th to 8th grade, would
contribute to one large "adven-
ture game." Each student or
student-team would contribute to
the collective game according to
individual abilities.

ty has ever been before.
The delegation is schedul-
ed to depart for Israel on
Saturday night, Feb. 1 (via
El Al from New York), and
return on Sunday, Feb. 9. In
addition to being received
by the President and the
presentation in Kfar Saba,
the group will be treated to
an unusual itinerary of visits
and meetings for an in-
depth view of places and
people in Israel "unlike
anything usually arranged
for the organization tours or
missions, in the words of
the organizers.

Kahane To Appeal
TEL AVTV (JTA) Rabbi
Meir Kahane plans to appeal to
the U.S. State Department
against the revocation of his
American citizenship. He was in-
formed by the U.S. Consulate in
Jerusalem last week that his
passport is being withdrawn
because a U.S. citizen cannot sit in
the parliament of a foreign coun-
try. Kahane represents the ex-
tremist Kach party in the
Knesset. If the State Department

designate another represen-
tative in the event they can-
not go. "We did not limit
the number of participants,
but we must let the Presi-
dent's aides know how
many people are coming
and we do want to have the
entire community
represented," she pointed
out. Inquiries on Operation
Syzygy should be directed to
Mrs. Gellert, at 368-2737.
Our adventure game covers the
span of Jewish experience and
history, and each team has pro-
grammed some small segment of
that history. Playing the game
propels you through Jewish time
and space, and programming it
has combined secular computing
lessons with Jewish education.
The individual game units utilize
graphics and animation, contain
databases with Jewish trivia ques-
tions or word problems, and
draws directly on Jewish ex-
perience for their subject matter.
But parents be warned! Some of
these games will mentally exhaust
you as you struggle to arrive at an
answer, while others will physical-
ly exhaust you as you strain your
reflexes arcade style.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of
this project has been the enhance-
ment of the student's creativity,
an essential element of success in
programming and in life. My
students have exercised their
creative muscles in working out
ways to utilize the computer's
capabilities to portray slices of
Jewish experiences, with some im-
pressive and sometimes amusing
results. The essence of computer
programming is to imaginatively
combine a 50-word vocabulary in
ways that will solve a problem and
reach a goal. This is a skill
sharpened only through actual
practice and "doing."
After the students have forgot-
ten the specifics of programming
(over winter break probably) I
think they will still retain some
creative problem-solving ability,
and that is the important lesson of
computer class.
The Day School has 21 fully-
outfitted Apple lie computers.
The native language to these com-
puters is BASIC the Begineers'
All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction
Code. BASIC is the most popular
language of smaller coputers. It is
a language with about 50 words,
which serve as sequential instruc-
tions to the computer.
Initially, BASIC is easy to learn,
but good programming/problem-
solving requires practice, pa-
tience, and creativity Some con-
sider programming an art form.
Each student is given a disk to
store their programs on, compris-
ing a record of their term's work.
In this manner programs are
enhanced and enlarged, evolving
throughout the semester.
Computer programming does
not require extensive
mathematics capabilities: it is a
different thing entirely.

Gov't. Economy Plan Begins
To Show Satisfactory Results
0B
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)
The government's
economic recovery plan is
beginning to show results.
It has already had a strong
impact on inflation, exports
are up, imports are down,
and there is renewed public
confidence in the economy
overall, according to a
background report released
by the Treasury.
The inflation rate is declining
for the first time in recent years,
the report noted. The monthly
rate is down from a 15 percent
average to an average of three-
four percent. Last month the in-
flation rate increased by just one
half of one percent.
Private consumption is down by
1.1 percent for tie first half of
1985, the Treasury says, and is ex-
pected to drop by three percent
when the year ends. The govern-
ment has pared its budget. Sub-
sidies for basic foods and services
have been cut. Vacant jobs have
not been filled. Fuel and electrici-
ty prices have gone down for the
first time in 20 years. The four

The report, entitled
Economic Turnaround,"

government's economic policies.

cy as a hedge against inflation.
percent reduction in the cost of
fuel may lead to a $60 million in-
crease in the gross national pro-
duct as a result of lower produc-
tion costs.
Imports have declined six per-
cent, mainly appliances and lux-
ury goods, the Treasury reported.
Exports are up by seven percent
this year. In October industrial ex-
ports were 31.7 percent higher
than in October of the previous
year.
The controversial $300 per
capita travel tax imposed during
the summer months has had spec-
tacular results, leading to
substantial savings of foreign cur-
rency. According to the Treasury
report, 48 percent fewer Israelis
went abroad last July than in July,
1984. This translates into an an-
nual figure of 288,400 fewer
Israelis spending badly needed
dollars overseas this year.

Two Inspirational Messages
By RABBI
DONALD D. CRAIN
Temple Beth Shalom
"Truly, wait quietly for God, 0
my soul, for my hope comet from
Him." Psalm 62:6
Some people refrain from doing
anything creative or worthwhile
because they feel they must
measure up to what someone else
does. And since they feel they can-
not do what others do, they do
nothing at all!
Such an attitude can be
debilitating. But no one has to
measure up to what others do, for
everyone is unique and special in
his or her own individual way. Can
you imagine how little art there
would be if each artist decided not
to do what he enjoyed, out of fear
that he wouldn't measure up to so-
meone else's talent?
I have heard people remark,
"I'm not creative," or "I don't
have any talents," or "I have
nothing to contribute." Everyone
has something to contribute! We
just don't always contribute the
same things. The universe is made
up of millions of differences; each
person is special and unique and
so are you! You are one of a kind.
Start contributing some of what
you are. And even if all you have
to give right now is a smile, then
give it! Someone wisely said,
"Those who bring sunshine into
the lives of others cannot keep it
from themselves."
So, if you feel you are lacking in
some area of your life, bring some
sunshine to someone, and the sun-
shine, in turn, will warm your own
life. Try it! Shine your light in so-
meone's life today! What a
wonderful gift you have to give!
Move from inspiration to action
today!

Large Crowd Joins Nun,
Rabbi in Plea For Soviet Jews
Rabbi Donald D. Crain
Life without aspiration would
have no inspiration; and without
inspiration progress would be
unattainable.
"the ways of the Lord are right,
and the just walk in them."
Hosea 1J,:10
To climb a mountain or to reach
a new level of awareness requires
change. Any move to a different
space, whether physicial or men-
tal, means change! To climb a
mountain while keeping one foot
at the bottom would be an im-
possibility! You must move up-
ward, leaving the old behind and
replacing it with the new.
A baby chick in the process of
leaving it's shell provides a good
lesson in entering a new ex-
perience. First there is its gentle
pecking at the shell, then more
pecking, and each time it pecks,
the chick gains more strength un-
til finally it bursts forth from its
restricting shell into a new, larger
world. The chick makes changes,
just as a mountain climber does
when he makes a commitment to
reach for victory on top of the
mountain.
If you wish to reach for a new
experience of life, there must be a
change in your thinking, a letting
go of the old in order to move for-
ward. Mental growth is an
emergence from the old attitudes
and actions to new awareness and
activity. Move up to newness!
Move up in consciousness, and let
love light your way!

fine and probation imposed by the
court as an alternative.
Both Sister Ann and Rabbi
Feldman received standing ova-
tions. The "show," however, was
stolen by the children from the
Day School, who sang a series of
songs dedicated to freedom for
Soviet Jews, including one writ-
ten especially for the occasion by
12-year-old Eric Persoff, who also
performed the song. The children
made it clear they and the entire
student body of the Day School
were aware of the plight of Soviet
Jews, and have adopted a Soviet
Jewish family from Leningrad to
keep in touch with.
Siser Ann and other experts
have confirmed that in addition to
public opinion pressure on the
Soviets aroused by such rallies
and by correspondence with the
oppressed people in the USSR,
these actions inevitably also come
to the attention of the refuseniks
and help boost their morale a
boost which is very much needed.
Prior to the rally, Sister Ann
pointed out that in addition to the
Soviet Jews, who are perhaps the
most persecuted group, there are
also members of many other
religious groups, including large
numbers of Baptists and
Catholics, who are refuseniks and
are being persecuted for religious
practice.
The Inter religious Task Force
has been instrumental in pro-
moting a project called "Lifeline
Letters" publicizing the names
of refuseniks and prisoners-of-
conscience of all faiths, so that
people can write them letters, a
comprehensive list, including full
addresses, of well over 1,200
refuseniks (more than half of them
Jewish, the rest representing
some 15 other religious groups),
was published recently by the St.
Petersburg Evening Independent,
one of the newspapers which has
become involved in the "Lifeline
letters" project.

Coming and Going
By CHARLES HOFFMAN
If I learned anything during my
year as a shaliah in the United
States promoting Israel and
Zionism, it is that in America,
anything goes.
No idea is too outlandish to be
taken up, tried out, and eventually
shaped into a popular social trend.
This is true also of American
Jewish life, albeit on a slightly
more sedate scale. Or perhaps not
so sedate, considering that gay
congregations and intermarriage
are as normal a part of the scene
today as, say, husband-and-wife
teams of rabbis.
Given this free-wheeling
cultural environment, where
yesterday's perversion is today's
fad and tomorrow's norm, it
should not come as too much of a
shock that aliya, too, is becoming
a "normal" part of the American
Jewish scene. This is not yet
reflected in the numbers, which
are still changing attitudes and
policies in a key segment of the
American Jewish establishment.
But this trend has its flip side
yerida emigration from Israel
is also becoming a normal part
of community life. Until recently,
both aliya and yerida were highly-
charged ideological issues from
which prudent people kept their
distance.
Take Philadelphia, which is not
regarded as a particularly trend-
setting Jewish community, even
though with 300,000 Jews it is the
third largest Jewish community in
the States after Los Angeles and
New York.
Last June there was a farewell
party for olim leaving
Philadelphia for Israel, sponsored
by the community Federation and
the local Aliya Council, a coalition
of groups supporting aliya. The
local aliya shaliah, Eliezer Kroll,
was given an award by the
Federation for his three years of
work in the community.
At the festivities, the Federa-
tion president himself said that
American Jews have not given
sufficient support to aliya from
the States in the past 35 years,
and that this should change. Fur-
thermore, some of the olim at this
gathering would no doubt benefit
from the emergency loan fund set
up by the Federation, and even-
tually, their success stories will be
printed in the community Jewish
weekly it sponsors.
Some clarification is in order
here, lest the reader think that I
have been describing the rituals of
some secret society of crypto-
Zionists. First, while testimonials
and other honors are generously
bestowed by Jewish communty
leaders on each other, it is rare if
not unique for a shaliah of the
World Zionist Organization to get
such an award, and from a
Federation no less, which is the
most powerful and prestigious
body on the local Jewish scene
today.
Second, for Federation
presidents to talk about encourag-
ing and supporting aliya would, as
recently as 15 years ago, have
been considered grounds for
removal from office, at the very
least.
Yet today, the Philadelphia*
Federation is steadily increasing
its support for aliya.
This Philadelphia story has its
dark side, however; yerida. Over
the years a number of Israelis
have set down roots in the area
and have won recognition for
their work on behalf of Jewish
schools and other community in-
stitutions. Their status as yordim
hardly bothers anyone.
Philadelphia is not alone in nor-
malizing aliya and yerida: The
process has gone even farther in
Detroit. There, the community
center for 70,000 Jews sponsors a
fine array of Israel programs, and
also serves as the base of opera-
tions for a WZO shaliah. This past
year, the center, together with
other groups, put on a Step Up to
Israel Fair that presented the full
range of options for experiencing
Israel, from short-term tours and
study programs to aliya.
In fact, the opening session of
the fair was devoted to hearing
the personal stories of several
WZO shlihim, all former
Americans, which naturally
centered on why they made aliya.
Its encouragement of aliya not-
withstanding, the center has also
developed programs for helping
former Israelis adjust to life in the
States in the same way as it
would help "any other group of
Jewish immigrants," as the center
director explained to me. It is no
secret that many yordim face
wrenching problems of identity
and purpose, especially those in
the States long enough to watch
their children grow up as
"Americans."
"It's time to stop kidding
ourselves that most of these peo-
ple are going back," he said
emphatically.
Apparently, neither aliya nor
yerida was easily placed on the
Detroit community "agenda," as
Americans are wont to say, but to-
day both seem safely ensconced
among local Jewish concerns.
The polarized ideological
perception of aliya and yerida,
viewing the former as the
supreme expression of selfless
commitment to the nation and the
latter as the epitome of selfishly-
motivated betrayal, is giving way
to the notion that both are
legitimate "options" for Jews, no
matter what passport they may
happen to hold.
And why not? America is the
land of infinite possibilities and
"options." As a commercial for a
popular beer proclaims: "Who
says you can't have it all?"
Olim from Philadelphia, and
from other places too, want to
have it all at least that is the im-
plication of the slogan on a banner
displayed at a recent get-together

of former Philadelphians now in
Israel. "We love Philly, but Israel
is our home," the banner read.
With that slogan, they could ex-
press their true feelings about
Israel without offending the
guests from abroad at this reu-
nion, which included their former
mayor.
But there is no avoiding the fact
that old-fashior ad ideologies are
offensive, and are meant to be.
Can anyone imagine the pioneers
of the Second Aliya saying: "We
love Minsk, but Eretz Yisrael is
our home?"
Whatever it is that binds the
olim from Philadelphia to the
Federation leaders who have
wished them well in Israel, it is
most certainly not these assump-
tions of classical Zionism.
One assumption that is widely
shared, however, even among
those in the American Zionist
establishment, is that the tradi-
tional system of aliya emissries in
America has reached the end of
the line. The hundreds of shlihim
sent there over the years
specifically to promote aliya
this refers mainly to aliya
emissaries and Zionist youth
movement emissaries and the
roughly $8 million spent each year
to maintain this system have
produced only a trickle of olim
from North America, roughly
3,000 a year.
Of the 50,000-60,000 Americans
now living in Israel, it is doubtful
if more than several thousand at
most can say that the influence of
a shaliah r membership in a
Zionist youth group was the
crucial factor in motivating their
aliya. And of the six million
American Jews "still" living
there, as it were, only a very small
percentage have ever given
serious thought to making aliya.
One of the most telling critiques
of the present system was for-
mulated this past year by the
members of the WZO Executive
who are nominally responsible for
supervising the operations of the
WZO departments in the U.S. The
12 members of the American Sec-
tion, as it is called, preside at 515
Park Avenue in New York City,
the American headquarters of the
WZO.
The discussions of the American
Section were distilled into a set of
recommendations and sent by its
chairman, Bernice Tannenbaum,
to a commission in Jerusalem stu-
dying the entire system of WZO
emissaries.
The main point of their criticism
and recommendations are :
There are too many shilhim
based at 515 Park Avenue, many
doing routine clerical work, and
more should be out in the field.
Since the cost of maintaining
a 8 h ali a h is so high
($60,000-$70,000 a year), there is
no reason why well-qualified local
personnel should not do some of
their jobs.
Most of the shlihim are not
sufficiently fluent in English when
they arrive, and it takes many of
them a full year before they can
communicate effectively. Fluency
in English should be a prime
criterion for selections.
They are not adequately brief-
ed before coming and frequently
have no chance to meet with their
predecessors, so they have to
waste many months learning the
job from scratch.
Political party affiliation "has
not proved to be a productive
selection basis," and appoint-
ments should be made on basis of
personal and professional
qualifications.
The shlihim display a lack of
knowledge about the structure
and style of American Jewish hfe,
and about the religious cultural
pluralism that exists in the U.S.
"They come with a particular bias
for a particular strain of religious
or political belief which limits
their effectiveness only to the
group which thinks along the
same lines." They recommend
that the emissaries be given
"intensive learning experiences
relating to the totality of life in
the U.S. prior to their arrival."
The criteria for assigning
shlihim should be revised, to avoid
situations now common where a
youth group with a small member-
ship has more emissaries than a
group with many more members.
The generalized phrasing of
these criticisms seems unfair in
that it fails to distinguish between
different types of shlihim. From
my own experience, it would seem
that these problems apply mainly
to aliya and youth movement en-
voys and to a lesser extent to what
is known as "community
shlihim."
For years the aliya and youth
movement emissaries have
operated for the most part in a
vacuum. The WZO departments
that sponsor them Aliya, and
Youth and Hehalutz decide
where they will be placed, how
many will be stationed, how much
money they will spend and what
they will spend it on. The com-
munities they are placed in have
little say in these matters or in
selecting candidates. It should
thus come as no great surprise
that most of these communities
have little interest in what the
shlihim do there, except when
they become "offensive."
The best of the lot finds ways to
overcome some of the handicaps
that the system imposes on them,
and do manage to make
themselves felt among area Jews.
As for those who are completely
stifled by the system, or worse,
those who thrive on the adver-
sarial relations with their "host"
communities that the system
sometimes generates, the less said
the better. Their contributions to
aliya and Israel range from
negligible to negative.
The functions of a community
shaliah vary, but most of them
focus on introducing Israel pro-
grams or emphases into local
Jewish activities and recruiting
youngsters for study, touring or
volunteer programs in Israel.
Whether their tasks should in-
clude active promotion of aliya is
still not clear.
What is clear is that those in
charge of aliya and youth move-
ment shlihim have been groping
during the past few years for new
models that would give their
emissaries better access to the
populations they are meant to
reach, and are slowly coming
closer to the partnership model
pioneered by the community
shlihim.
The more sophisticated people
in the Aliya department in
Jerusalem know that the old ap-
proach of standing in front of an
audience and beating them over
the head with Zionist cliches has
about as much effect as preaching
peace and brotherhood on a street
corner in Beirut.
As one experienced Israeli-bom
shaliah expressed it to me: "Aliya
is clearly not for everybody. The
American Jews know it, we know
it, and they know we know it. So
why keep preaching worn-out
Zionist cliches to them about the
obligation of all Jews to settle in
Israel?"
He might have added that
American Jews also know that
Israel is not for all Israelis, as the
growing numbers of yordim
testify.

3 Federations Divest Themselves of
U.S. Holding in S. Africa
Continued from Page 1-
do not subscribe to the Sullivan
Principles and to refrain from
future investments in such
companies.
The New York Federation has
investments totalling $11 million
in approximately 30 American
companies operating in South
Africa out of a total portfolio of
approximately $60 million,
William Kahn. its executive vice
president, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. Kahn declin-
ed to make available the names of
the companies involved other than
to say that some were "blue-chip"
corporations.
He said that the securities to be
divested are currently valued at
$1 million. The divestiture pro-
cedure will be carried out within a
month's time. In addition, Kahn
said that the FJP has $5 million in
companies which subscribe to the
Sullivan Principles but which
haven't made "significant move-
ment" toward implementing its
guidelines.
THESE COMPANIES will be
carefully monitored by the
Federation over the next year and
decision on divestment will be
made on a company-by-company
basis. An additional $5 million is
invested in companies which are
signatories to the Principles and
are "working actively to improve
the quality of life for all people" in
South Africa, Kahn said.
The divestment decision, an-
nounced by Federation President
Daniel Shapiro, was reached by
the Federation Committee on
Government Relations and the
Finance Committee, said Kahn.
Both committees shared a
"concern in terms of Federation
representing certain Jewish
values" which made it "inap-
propriate for Federation to hold
securities be part of the owner-
ship of companies in South
Africa which are not working
toward the democratic ideal of
people having the right to live a
full and complete life," Kahn said.
The Jewish Federation of Rhode
Island adopted a resolution June 6
endorsing the concept of divest-
ment from holdings in companies
which do not "adhere to anti-
apartheid standards such as the
Sullivan Principles." The Federa-
tion has since that time divested
itself of "a few stocks," said ex-
ecutive Vice President Elliot
Cohan.
THESE HOLDINGS are in
companies which either did not
respond to the Federation's in-
quiries as to whether they were
signatories to the Sullivan Prin-
ciples, or who' informed the
Federation they did not sign the
Priciples and which the Federa-
tion felt did not give "ample
reason" for this, or which showed
"no evidence of participating in
any constructive efforts for Black
workers."
The Rhode Island Jewish
Federation declined to reveal the
amount of money invested in
South African companies, the
names of the companies, or the
value of the divested stock or of
its total investment portfolio.

Talk About Nerve: The Israelis
are now asking this country for
$3.55 billion in aid, or $550 million
more than their last annual aid
package. What Israel hasn't done
yet is completely clear up the
curious case of Jonathan J.
Pollard, who is accused of selling
them (among others) classified
American documents. One would
think that Israel's Finance
Ministry would have had the
grace, not to say prudence, to wait
until that scandal was completely
cleaned up and purloined
documents returned before
raising its bid for American aid.
Israel is a longtime friend and
ally, a beacon not only of
democracy but of civilization in a
part of the world where civiliza-
tion is rapidly being replaced by
terror. Support for the Jewish
state is understandable and, more
than that, a prudent investment.
But before the Israelis raise the
ante, they need to make full
amends for spying on their
greatest friend and ally
sometimes their only friend and
ally. Instead, they have upped
their annual aid request by $550
million, which is no inconsiderable
amount even in Washington. To
paraphrase the late Everett
Dirksen: $550 million here, $550
million there, and pretty soon
you're talking real money.
Even more impressive than the
amount being requested is
Jerusalem's timing before this
spy scandal has been laid to rest
instead of after. In short, the
latest Israeli request
demonstrates what we in the
States would call a lot of chutzpah.
Blood and Irony: Sometimes
Dateline Israel: Battered Women
By FERN ALLEN
JERUSALEM The doorbell
ring is heard throughout the
building. Five women stare anx-
iously at each other. For a few
moments, no one moves. Each
women fears that the caller may
be her husband demanding that
she leave the shelter for battered
women and return home. But the
women inside this fortress-like
structure know that would mean
going back to the beatings, burn-
ings and domestic terror that they
have come here to escape.
"We help them calm down, feel
safe and decide what they want
from life. We want to give them a
good feeling about themselves. If
they get to the point of saying 'I'm
a woman and not a ahmatta,' we
feel we've achieved something,"
said Israela Hirshberg. She is the
social worker at the Jerusalem
shelter called Beit Zipporah,
which opened in 1981.
There are four such havens for
battered women throughout
Israel; the others are in Haifa,
Herzliya and Ashdod. More than
2,000 women have sought refuge
behind their walls since the first
shelter opened in 1977.
Sara (a pseudonym) would pro-
bably have committed suicide if
she hadn't come to the shelter to
work out her problems. Married at
17, she was the victim of violence
by her father, a drug addict. The
terror continued during her mar-
ried life. Her husband, also ad-
dicted to drugs, started beating
her almost immediately after their
wedding.
Now 26 and the mother of two
children, she has obtained a
divorce with relative ease since
she consented to give her husband
everything she owned as part of
the divorce settlement. She did
win custody of her children, who
were also beaten by their father.
Another woman, Miriam, has
been in and out of the Haifa
shelter for the past two years. Her
husband threatened to kill her
several times and often beat her
viciously. Her scars substantiate
her accounts. The courts have
ordered the husband not to enter
her Jerusalem home, yet, he
repeatedly disobeys and returns
to the apartment to continue the
beatings.
He was recently arrested for
drunk driving. Miriam hopes that
her numerous complaints, plus the
drunk driving charge, will finally
put him in jail for a while and br-
ing a reprieve from his physical
abuse.
Professional social workers and
volunteers explain the options the
battered women have as well as
the formidable obstacles they face
from the Israeli rabbinate should
they try to obtain a divorce. A
typical day finds workers phoning
the rabbinate to confirm dates for
court appearances and helping the
battered women bypass red tape.
"The rabbinate makes it very
difficult for the women. The rab-
bis urge shalom bayit (peace in the
home), and they tell the women to
go back to their husbands and try
again for the children's sake.
"Many women don't get a
divorce because of these dif-
ficulties. They are also pressured
from his family and hers to stay
together. In Israel, there is a
strong stigma attached to a
divorced woman," Hirshberg
noted.
"If the divorce procedure were
easier, many women wouldn't
give up so fast," she added.
In the shelters, the battered
women find sympathetic listeners
for the first time. A sense of
camaraderie often develops as the
women share their nightmarish
stories of rape by their husbands,
beatings while asleep, being burn-
ed with cirarettes. having their
Israeli Child Flown to U.S. For
Liver Transplant Operation
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Health Ministry flew three-year-
old Meir Zorea of Migdal Haemek
to the U.S. Sunday for an
urgently-needed liver transplant
operation which hopefully, will
save his life.
Health Minister Mordechai Gur
ordered the Ministry last Friday
to arrange the flight and pay all
expenses after the child's family
was unable to raise $150,000
needed for the trip and surgery.
Gur acted under mounting public
and political pressure from
Knesset members when doctors
warned that the gravely ill
youngster could die any day.
Leading Israeli doctors insist
the liver transplant can be suc-
cessfully performed in Israel but
is not because of budgetary con-
straints on the Health Ministry.
The child was born with a
malfunctioning liver and has
spent most of his three years in
hospitals. Recently his condition
worsened. Fund-raising efforts by
family and friends produced
$25,000, but the public campaign
picked up momentum when the
case was widely publicized last
Thursday.
Several Knesset members said
they would personally collect
public donations and hand them
over to the Health Ministry.
Histadrut's sick-fund, Kupat
Holim, said it would cover half the
cost of the boy's mother's flight to
the U.S. and would contribute
$160 per day toward the medical
treatment.
Dr. Amram Ayalon of the
Hadassah Medical Center here
said the operation could be per-
formed in Jerusalem if a donor
was available, and certain devices
were purchased, but it would take
three months to prepare teams for
the surgery. He said that the
techniques of procedure have
already been learned by Hadassah
medical staff, and the operation, if
performed here, would cost about
a tenth of what it costs in the U.S.
Meanwhile, the Health Ministry
has given a commitment to an
American hospital, reportedly one
in Pittsburgh, to cover all costs
for Meir Zorea.

study, to 20 percent, according to
Ruth Resnick. who runs the
Herzliya shelter.
Figures from the Labor and
Social Affairs Ministry estimate
that 100,000 women in Israel are
battered annually. Reports from
the Tel Aviv rabbinate indicate
that four out of every five divorc-
ed women were battered.
Although those seeking shelter
tend to come from poorer Sephar-
dic backgrounds, wife-beating is
found in all levels of Israeli socie-
ty. Victims include women from
kibbutzim, wives of university
professors, women from small
towns, large cities as well as those
from ultra-Orthodox areas, accor-
ding to Hirshberg.
She added that more affluent
women only come to the shelter
for advice. They have other means
of escaping their homes such as
staying in a hotel or with friends.
Violent husbands often track
their wives down to the shelters
and continue their verbal
harangues and curses from the
street. For some men, that is not
enough. Carmela Naskash's hus-
band came to the gate at the
Herzliya shelter a few years ago
and murdered her. The shelter has
been named in her memory.
Women generally stay at the
shelters from two days to more
than a year. Many leave and
return when the violence in their
homes recurs.
According to Hirshberg, women
who go to shelters far from their
home cities lack the emotional
strength to fight for a divorce.
Those who use the shelter in their
own cities are tougher and ready
to resist pressures to return to
their spouses.
Women staying in the shelter
help with cooking, cleaning and
shopping. Children are often
Drought to the shelters with their
mothers, and arrangements are
made for them to attend local
schools. Usually the youngsters
have their own scars of having
been battered.
The Jerusalem facility has room
for 10 women and seven children;
Herzliya can accommodate 10
women and 16 children; the newly
opened Ashdod shelter has space
for 30 women and children, and
the Haifa shelter, Israel's first,
which began operating in 1977,
has nine bedrooms, a nursery,
playground and dining-living
room.
The shelters, which run on tight
budgets, are funded partly
through government sources
(about 25 percent), with the re-
mainder from private donations
sent to Woman to Woman, P.O.
Box 10403, Jerusalem.
Although the battered women
are grateful for the support and
protection the shelters provide,
they note that it is ironic that they
are the ones behind the steel doors
and not their husbands. As one
woman put it: "This is no way to
lhre."
it's a tossup whether more blood
or irony is involved in terrorist
outrages around the world or in
the world's reaction to them. The
government of Egypt, for exam-
ple, asked for the extradition of
the sole surviving hijacker of the
Egyptair flight that ended in a
massacre on a runway in Malta.
Yet the Egyptians had protested,
at least formally, when the United
States intercepted one of their
planes carrying the hijackers of
the Achille Lauro. Also on that
Egyptian plane was Mohammed
Abu Abbas of the Palestine Li-
quidation Organization, the
shadowy figure who has emerged
as the mastermind of the Achille
Lauro operation.
Perhaps some deal can be work-
ed out whereby Malta turns over
the surviving terrorist in ex-
change for Egypt's using its good
offices with the PLO to turn over
Mohammmed Abu Abbas to the
United States or Italy, both of
whom are most interested in his
whereabouts. Unfortunately, Ita-
ly developed its interest in him on-
ly after turning Mr. Abbas loose
which is another irony. And
unless the civilized world gets its
act together, the ironies will con-
tinue, and so will the bloodshed.

demanded "the immediate
withdrawal of the foreign troops
from Afghanistan," as though
there were foreign troops there
besides Russians. But the Soviet

pening in the real world but that

Watch That Ethnocentrieity:
More than a little sectionalism
crept into an AP dispatch the
other day. First the story noted
that the Erie Canal of fame and
folksong was being used again
after an accident blocked part of
the St. Lawrence Seaway. Then it
offered the reader a little of the
canal's interesting, and very in-
fluential, history. And it conclud-
ed: "The canal also gave Ohio and
the sprawling Northwest Ter-
ritory access to the East. Without
it that region would have been
dependent on the Mississippi
River and dangerously isolated
during the Civil War."
This conclusion must be Yankee
for: "Without the Erie Canal,
Ohio and the old Northwest would
have remained happily tied to the
Mississippi River system and firm-
ly connected during the War bet-
ween the States."
Careful, AP. Some of us still
remember.
Sound Familiar? According to
a dispatch from Johannesburg,
the state of emergency imposed
on the Cape Town area "enables
police to arrest without warrant,
impose curfews, seize property,
seal off areas and restrict news
coverage." The place is starting to
sound like Nicaragua.

Levines to be Honored
Kaufman to Chair
Masada Dinner
Shep Kaufman, Men's Division
chairman for the Del-Aire Coun-
try Club, has been named chair-
man of the Maaada Dvision Din-
ner for 1986. The Masada Dinner
will be held on Thursday, Jan. 30,
at the home of Shirley and Budd
Seratean.
At this year's dinner, Abner and
Mildred Levine will be honored
for their outstanding work and
philanthropy in this community
and for the Jewish People
everywhere. The guest speaker
will be Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer, a
noted authority on Latin
American Jewry.
Rabbi Meyer will share his first-
hand knowledge of the situation of
Latin American Jews, past and
present, and tie this in with the
Community Theme ("INTO THE
21st CENTURY ONE
DREAM, ONE PEOPLE, ONE
DESTINY").
The Masada Dinner has tradi-
tionally been one of the most ex-
citing Men's Division events of the
annual campaign. It is open to
those making an annual gift in the
category of $6,500 or more. Shep
Kaufman, who last year chaired
the annual Dinner-Dance, said he
was pleased and excited to chair
this year's Masada event. Kauf-
man, who was active in Jewish
and civic affairs in Rhode Island
prior to coming to South County,
is a member of the Federation's
Board of Directors.
Abby Levine has been an active
force in the growth of the South
County Jewish Community, and
has served as vice president of the
Federation and as associate Cam-
paign chairman. Last year he
chaired the Men's Division major
events. In addition to his Federa-
tion activity, Levine has also been
active in Israel Bonds he found-
ed and served as president of the
Prime Ministers' Club and has
served as a member of the Na-
tional Council of AIPAC
(American-Israel Public Affairs
Committee). He has also served
on the Board of B'nai Torah Con-
gregation, and is actively involved
in their building-fund campaign.
In his part-year residence in the
North, Levine has been active in
the United Jewish Appeal, the
Peninsula Hospital, the Anti-
Defamation League, and was a
recipient of the Jewish
Theological Seminary's National
Community Service Award.
Mildred Levine has been active
in Hadassah, the Peninsula
Hospital Auxiliary, the United
Fund, and has served as chairper-
son of the Lion of Judah category
in the Women's Division in South
County. Both she and her husband
have been honored by the UJA
and Israel Bonds, and both serve
as board members of the Samuel
Waxman Cancer Research
Foundation.
Palm Greens 'Captains'

Dr. Saul Anton, co-chairman for
Palm Greens, said this week he
was happy to announce the follow-
ing people in Palm Greens Section

everyone gets involved with the
same enthusiasm.
Stele to Chair Boca Chase
James Nobil, chairman of th<
Men's Division of the South Coun
ty Jewish Federation, recently ap
pointed Aaron Stele as Campaigr
chairman for Boca Chase. At
chairman. Stele will be responsi-
ble for generating awareness and
increasing participation for the
1986 UJA/Federation Campaign.
For over 30 years, Stele has
been an advocate of involvement
within the Jewish community. His
accomplishments include founding
and serving as one of a Presidium
of the Youth Division of the
American Jewish Congress in
New Jersey, serving as vice presi-
dent for the Olympic XI B'nai
B'rith Lodge, and aiding in the
construction of s new synagogue.
Born in the Bronx, New York,
he completed his education at
Temple University in Philadelphia
when he obtained a degree in elec-
trical engineering. He continued
his education and eventually pur-
Aaron Stele
sued a successful career as a den-
tal ceramist.
Since his move to Florida in
1981, Stele has become a noted
sculptor in Boca and surrounding
communities. His most recent ac-
complishment was his acceptance
into the Professional Artist Guild
of the Boca Raton Museum.
As Chairman of Boca Chase, he
continues his lifelong commitment
to service and support. This year's
campaign is no exception. "The
support of. the Federation should
be made by every Jewish Family.
This year is a critical one for the
American Jew," explained Stele.
"We as Jews must tell the world
of our many contributions to our
country's greatness," and what
better to continue to contribute
than by building a strong, model
Jewish community? That is why
the Federation/UJA Campaign is
so important.
White Returns to Head Boca Lago Drive
Saul White has been named
chairman of the Men's Campaign
in Boca Lago by James Nobil,
chairman of the Federation's
Men'8 Division. White has chaired
the Boca Lago campaign for the
previous two years.
As chairman, White says, he
realizes the job ahead is quite a
challenge. But he has always felt a
tremendous amount of support
and dedication coming from the
members of the various groups he
has headed in Boca Lago.
"The formulation of this year's
theme is helping everyone realize
we are truly One People with One
Dream, working toward a com-
mon Destiny," White pointed out.
"People may give of their time, or
their money, or as often is the
case of both. Certainly
whenever people volunteer to be
active they give of themselves. In
this country Jewish people have
been given many opportunities,
and volunteering is a way of giv-
ing something back."
This is exactly what Saul White
and his wife have been doing by
devoting years of service to the
community. Beside serving two
years as chairman of his "pod,"
the Fairways. He has also been in-
volved in non-sectarian civic af-
fairs, here and in his former
residence in the North.
Mrs. White also has been active
in community affairs, having serv-
ed in Hadassah, in which she is a
life member, and in other national
women's groups.
Working with White in this
year's Campaign will be Arnold
Rosen thai, member of the Federa-
tion's Executive Board and board
chairman of the South County
Jewish Community Day School,
and Robert Rieder, a Federation
Board member and chairman of
the Major Gifts for the Federa-
tion/UJA Campaign.
White, who said he would like to
thank everyone who has worked
hard to make Boca Lago's cam-
paign successful, added: "The
volunteer spirit has always been a
special characteristic of the
Jewish People. People volunteer
in many ways, and for many
reasons. Whatever they do, it is
not the size of the gift that is im-
portant but the spirit of the
giver."
Irma Fier to Host Lion of Judah Luncheon Jan. 13
The Lion of Judah Luncheon of
the Women's Division will be held
on Monday, Jan. 13, at the home
of Irma Fier in Bocaire. Guest
speaker at the luncheon will be

the National Women's Division
and member of the National Ex-
ecutive Committee of the United

Biggest CHAI Event
Leads Off Campaign
The largest group ever to
attend the annual CHAI
event gathered at the home
of Bea and Richard Levy in
Boca Raton last month, in
the first major event of the
1986 Federation/UJA
Campaign.
Most important, however, both
to the organizers and the par-
ticipants, was the feeling of
warmth and belonging generated
at the event, chaired by Richard
Levy with Philip Zinman as co-
chairman.
Prof. Irwin Cotler of McGill
University, Montreal, was the
guest speaker an expert on
human rights and Jewish affairs,
as well as his field of international
law, Cotler inspired his audience
with his talk on anti-Semitism in
the world today, and the manner
in which he related current Jewish
issues to the Community Theme
("INTO THE 21st CENTURY -
ONE DREAM, ONE PEOPLE,
ONE DESTINY").
The theme, the talk, the menu
all were geared to the current
aspect of the theme for
November-December, namely
Anglo-Saxon Jewry.
The 18 couples who attended
raised over $500,000 for this
year's Campaign, with the majori-
ty being pledged during the even-
ing. The CHAI event is geared to
those making gifts of $18,000 or
more to the annual campaign.

By DENA R. FELDMAN
LCSW, ACSW
(Adapted from
Responsive Parenting
by Saf Lerman)
Some adults think that
childhood should be a "happy"
time and that children need pro-
tection from upsetting ex-
periences. This outlook is
unrealistic. We do not protect
children by hiding things, but by
sharing information and ex-
periences with them so they can
learn to accept and deal com-
petently with life and death is
part of life.
Children feel safe when things
are explained to them and when
the adults around them are open
in sharing feelings and informa-
tion. When parents talk in
whispers and hide death, children
are left with confusion and anxie-
ty. If parents approach the topic
of death with fear and anxiety,
then children will also become
afraid.
All of a child's questions and
concerns should be answered
calmly and truthfully. A child will
likely conclude that death must in-
deed be very terrible if his own
parent will not even discuss it.
Anything that is hidden from
children will be even more
frightening and confusing than
what is openly discussed.
And it is not helpful to give
children misinformation. Do not
tell a child that someone is sleep-
ing or away on vacation when that
person has died.
Parents can let children know
that all people and animals die
eventually. They can make it clear
that death menas no one will be
seeing that person or animal
again. It is realistic to tell a child
that some people die young due to
a serious illness or accident, but
that most pepole die when they
are old. The child should know
that early death is a possibility,
but not a likelihood. The parent
can say that he or she expects
they will enjoy a nice, long life
together. This is both reassuring
and realistic.
Sometimes a child will say, "I
don't want to die!" or "I'm afraid
to die." The parent can respond
supportively by saying, "I can
understand that" or "I feel that
way too sometimes, and so do
many other people."
If a close friend or relative dies,
parents should allow their
children to experience the family's
grief. Adults help children when
they share their own feelings with
them.
Children need to see and hear
expressions of a grief. When a lov-
ed one has died, it is appropriate
for adults to express feelings of
sadness or anger in front of
children. It is healthy for children
alike. Talking about the dead per-
son, the course of the illness or the
circumstances of the death helps
adults adjust to a death. When
adults allow children to hear them
talk about these things, then
adults help children in several im-
portant ways. Children hear the
words and phrases that adults use
to express their feelings: "I'm
very sad." "I miss Pop already."
"I'm so angry. Why did she have
to die?" Hearing these
statements, children learn the
words they can use to express
their own feelings.
When they hear the adults
around them expressing feelings,
children realize that it is OK to
voice these kinds of thought.
Children need to hear about the
circumstances of the death so they

binic authorities.

are not left in the dark with
unanswered questions and con-
cerns. Children worry more about
what they don't understand than
what they do.
When the atmosphere is open
instead of hushed up, children feel
freer to ask any questions they
have.
Children experienced varied
feelings when a person they love
dies. A child may feel deep
sadness; a strong sense of loss;
anger at having been abandoned;
or guilt, fearing that his own evil
thoughts may have been responsi-
ble for the death. Sometimes
children can't express their feel-
ings right away. Their feelings
slowly come out later. A parent
could say to a child who seems
unable to put his feelings into
words, "You loved Grandpa so
much. You really miss him a lot.
Sometimes you feel angry and
very unhappy that he died."
Funerals should include
children. It is usually helpful for
children to attend the funeral of
someone they knew well although
they should not be forced to at-
tend if they express a strong wish
not to.
Children want to know
everything they can. They are
curious about all the details sur-
rounding death. They want to
know what happens to a body in
the grave, and whether bones
decompose. Adults should respect
a child's search for information
and answer him accurately.
Sometimes, children may seem
insensitive. At the time of a death,
instead of acting unhappy, a child
may be disruptive, or even silly. A
child may be sad one moment and
run joyfully out to play the next.
The child needs relief from his
strong feelings; along with griev-
ing, he participates in everyday
activities.
If a person is dying, children
should know. When a child is close
to a person who is dying, it is
helpful to allow the child to visit
that person while she or he is still
alive. The child can say good-bye
gradually, and the dying person
also has a chance to say goodbye
to the child.
Do not leave children alone with
their feelings. Children and adults
need to express their feelings
about the loss of a loved one, so
the feelings don't get stored up in-
side. Feelings that are expressed
can help to heal the hurt so that
children and adults can embrace
life again and move on.
By dealing with death on the
physical, emotional, and spiritual
levels, we can help children in-
tegrate feelings and facts. We
help them see that death is part of
life.
There are many excellent books
dealing with death that parents
can share with children. A few
that we recommend are Talking
About Death: A Dialogue Between
Parent and Child by Earl A.
Grollman, The Tenth Good Thing
About Barney by Judith Viorst,
It's OK To Cry by Leone Castell
Anderson, and About Dying: An
Open Family Book For Parents
and Children Together by Sara
Bonnett Stein.
An attempt is made here to cite
reference from biblical sources
regarding these issues, and to
outline some of the halachic pro-
blems, of a complex nature, facing
the Jewish astronaut.
Rabbi Kasher, of blessed
memory, discussed in great detail
many halachic problems faced by
the Jewish spacenik; in rabbinic
literature it is related that in
biblical times there were 300
known laws relating to a "tower
that flies in the air"; Rashi sug-
gests several possibilities of "fly-
ing towers."
With the remarkable ac-
complishments in space travel
during the past two decades, it
has been demonstrated con-
clusively that man can live in
outer space for long periods of
time without adverse effects. It is
a foregone conclusion that even-
tually a permanent orbiting sta-
tion will be established in space.
Can it be manned by Jews who
wish to observe traditional Jewish
law (Halacha)'!
In Deuteronomy (XII: 1) it says:
"These are the statutes and or-
dinances which you shall observe
to do in the land which the Lord
the G-d of your fathers has given
you to possess it, all the days you
live upon the earth." Psalm 115
says: "The heavens are the
Lord's, and the earth He gave
mankind." This implies, possibly,
that man is forbidden to leave the
earth. According to some
scholars' interpretations, the
Divine Presence has never
descended to earth, nor did Moses
and Elijah ascend on high. A frag-
ment from Genesis (1:28). saying:
"till the earth and subdue it," is
interpreted by Rabbi Kasher to
"teach us that mankind is forbid-
den to dwell elsewhere than on
earth."
According to some, the builders
of the Tower of Babe) sinned by
saying, "Let us go up (to the sky)
and settle there," and King
Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was
condemned for planning to ascend
to the skies (Isaiah 14: 13-15).
There seems to be a conflict bet-
ween the "state of the art" space
travel to the moon and Agada
(biblical and post-biblical legend
and Jewish lore). The latter is ex-
pressed in the sanctification of the
New Moon each month, when we
recite: "I spring up toward you,
but cannot touch you." Some rab-
bis are still of the opinion that
man will never go on the moon.
Most authorities, on the other
hand, believe that Moses and Eli-
jah, as well as Abraham, actually
did ascend to the heavens; that
the builders of the Babel Tower
and Nebuchadnezzar were con-
demned for their wickedness, not
for the act of ascending.
According to some scholars,
even though originally G-d did for-
bid man to leave the earth, this
decree was annulled with the giv-
ing of the Torah, when G-d
declared, "Let those from below
ascend on high, and let those from
above descend." And in Exodus
(XIX:4) we read: "You have
seen how I bore you on eagles'
wings and brought you to me."
Thus space flight and colonization
may be permissible halachically.
reference from Deuteronomy,
XII.l above.) Many authorities
take the latter view, saying the
commandments are binding on a
person wherever he or she lives.
Time, and the length of day,
present unique "every day" pro-
blems in space. In a low-flying or-
bit, the day from one sunset to the
next may last only one hour and
20 minutes, while in a space col-
ony further removed from earth
there may be no sunset at all. On
the moon, the sun sets but once a
month. Many halachic duties de-
pend on the time of sunset or
sunrise such as the appropriate
times for reciting morning and
evening prayers, observance of
Sabbath and festivals these are
merely some of the more common
and obvious problems .. .
Some earthly precedents may
be applicable, as a model to for-
mulate rules for spaceniks con-
fronted by problems related to
such circumstances, one keeps a
24-hour day, starting at midnight
in the summer, and at noon in the
winter. Rabbinic authorites, by
the same token, tend to agree that
such precedents indicate that
space dwellers should keep in step
with communities on earth, keep-
ing a 24-hour day for halachic pur-
poses. Perhaps the spacenik
would follow the time zone of the
launch site, or the time zone of
Jerusalem.
Some less common than the
every-day-problems would in-
clude: burial as by Jewish law
burial must be in the ground;
purification by immersion, which
requires a mikvah on the ground
with running water; (incidentally,
vessels made in space from non-
terrestrial material cannot
become impure) and there are
many more problems one can
think of, with a little imagination.
For instance, can you envision a
spacenik building a succah outside
his space station? Perhaps our
readers can suggest other pro-
blems and possibly the ap-
propriate answers...
Bereaved Parents Press
For Lebanon Inquiry
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) Bereaved parents of soldiers
killed in the Lebanon war are continuing to demand a full-
scale inquiry into the war. Premier Shimon Peres, who
himself once urged such an inquiry, believes it would be im-
practical to try to conduct one under present
circumstances.
That was the gist of his reply to Ephrat Spiegel, mother
of a fallen soldier, Yoav Spiegel. The family recently
returned to Peres a certificate of recognition of galant ser-
vice which the army sent posthumously.
"I know that my answer will not satisfy you, but who of
us can argue with a family which has lost their dearest
one," Peres wrote. He explained that there is no practical
chance at this time to form a committee to inquire into the
war, regardless of his personal views on the issue.
The Spiegel family recaled that Peres, when he headed
the opposition in parliament, has demanded an inquiry. He
subsequently received a mandate from his voters to change
the existing situation, Spiegel said. "We shall continue to
wage the campaign of all the families which demand an in-
vestigation oi the war and the trial and punishment of
those responsible," she wrote.

"Almonds and Raisins" is
a fascinating 90-minute
documentary film that
covers Yiddish movies made
between 1927, the year of
the talking picture, and
1940. This powerful film
shows realistic excerpts
that contrast the wealth and
poverty of New York, that
tell stories of life in Poland
and in New York sweat-
shops. There are dramas
about aged parents finding
long-lost children who
become lawyers or doctors.
The movie tells of strikes
and of social climbing.
There is even a Yiddish
western.
Seven great figures of
Yiddish films appear in in-
terviews, while Orson
Welles narrates the script.
English subtitles accom-
pany the film.

Peres Says Ivory Coast Will
Reestablish Diplomatic Ties
GENEVA (JTA) -
Premier Shimon Peres an-
nounced here that Ivory
Coast will re-establish
diplomatic relations with
Israel, broken off 12 years
ago during the Yom Kippur
War.
Peres, who arrived here made
the announcement after a four-
hour meeting with President Felix
Houphouet-Boigny of Ivory Coast.
The two leaders issued a joint
statement saying, "We have
decided to recommend to our
governments to re-establish
diplomatic relations." Peres told a
press conference later, "I imagine
that our government will follow
our recommendations."
ISRAEL has been working
strenuously for years to restore
relations with the Black African
nations that abruptly broke them
off in 1973 apparently under Arab
pressure. So far it has succeeded
with two, Liberia and Zaire, which
re-established their ties with
Israel last year.
The Israel Premier made his
unannounced flight here today
especially to meet with
Houphouet-Boigny. He was ac-
companied by David Kimche,
Director General of the Foreign
Ministry. They will return to
Israel tonight.
Uri Savid, a spokesman for the
Prime Minister, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that Peres in-
tended to make his meeting with
Houphouet-Boigny public only if
the outcome was positive. That
was the reason for the secrecy
surrounding his one-day trip to
Geneva.
THE 80-year-old African leader
announced last October that he
planned to re-establish diplomatic
relations with Israel before his
retirement next year. Ivory Coast
is one of the richest African states
and politically one of the most
stable. It now becomes the third of
those that broke with Israel to
renew ties.
Diplomatic sources here said
two others may soon follow suit,
Gabon and Cameroon.
Israel presently has diplomatic
relations with seven nations on
the African continent. These are
Egypt, which signed a peace trea-
ty with Israel in 1979, South
Africa, Liberia, Zaire, Lesotho,
Malawi and Swaziland. The latter
three, controlled by South Africa,
never broke with Israel.

CONGREGATION BETH AMI, the new Conser-
vative synagogue in Boca Raton, has asked The Jewish
Floridian to emphasize to its readers that there is no
connection between the congregation and the Levis
Jewish Community Center.
The JCC has been kind enough to make a lease
agreement with the congregation for the use of
room(s), in the same way that the JCC would rent
space to any other Jewish organization. There is no
special consideration given to Cong. Beth Ami by the
JCC or by the South County Jewish Federation.
The arrangement, for a specified period of time, is temporary,
and due to its growth the congregation is already seeking alter-
native quarters for the conduct of its regular weekly services.

More Coalition Tension Seen
As Taba Talks Continue
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA)
More coalition tension
this time over foreign policy
is being predicted in
political circles here follow-
ing the successful conclu-
sion of three days of talks
between Israel and Egypt
on Taba. The talks, in
Herzliya, wound with both
sides report in progress.
Details were not immediately
available. But there was talk of
"tying loose ends," and it seemed
clear that the issue would now
come up before the Inner Cabinet
next week where the coalition
tensions over the Taba issue could
easily explode.
Plainly, the negotiators
senior civil servants from the
Foreign Ministry and the Defense
Ministry have reached the
outlines of an accord with Egypt
on a procedure, while not entail-
ing an immediate submission of
Taba to arbiwation, nevertheless
involving preparations for arbitra-
tion while simultaneously seeking
a compromise solution.
The Likud under Deputy
Premier and Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir has always
demanded that conciliation be
tried first before the sides sub-
mit the issue to binding interna-
tional arbitration.
Premier Shimon Peres and his
Labor Party have been prepared
to accept Egypt's position that ar-
bitration be invoked without any
effort at conciliation.
The tension on Taba, if it indeed
erupts, will have been heightened
by the ongoing and worsening
feud between the two main coali-
tion parties
To mark UN Human Rights Day, members of
the '358' women's campaign for Soviet Jewry
dress as Prisoners of Zion and hold a
'prisoners lunch' at the King David Hotel in
Jerusalem. 'Prisoners' ate bread and dried
herring and drank water in a room of the hotel
which was made to resemble a prison by
Bezalel Art Academy students.
