New Jewish Campus Site
Dedication Set
Awards to Donors Flack, Katz, Siemens
Special Honors to Hawkins, Mica
The South County Jewish community will dedicate the site of the
new Richard and Carole Siemens Jewish Campus on Sunday, Jan. 26,
at 10 a.m. The public is invited to take part in this historic occasion.
The 23-acre site of the Richard and Carole Siemens Jewish Campus will house the
new offices of the South County Jewish Federation, the South County Jewish Communi-
ty Day School, the Adolph and Rose Levis Jewish Community Center and the South
County Jewish Family and Children Service. In addition, the Federation will erect on the
site Heritage Village a 101-unit housing project for the elderly, subsidized by HUD, the
Housing and Urban Development department of the federal government.
At the dedication ceremony, Roy and Naomi Flack, Stanley and Marilyn Katz, and
Richard and Carole Siemens will be honored for their donation of the 23 acres on which
the campus will be built. Special guests of honor will be Senator Paula Hawkins and Con-
gressman Daniel Mica, who have been instrumental in obtaining the HUD financing of
$5.7 million for the housing project.
The new campus site is located on U.S. 441 (State Road 7), south of Glades Road, ad-
jacent to the new West Boca Community Hospital.
A large tent with adequate seating will be erected for the dedication ceremonies, ac-
cording to Federation president Marianne Bobick. "We look forward to a very festive
morning, with a massive turnout of members of the community. With G-d's help, this will
be the first step in a process that will culminate, in two to three years, in a major Jewish
installation on this piece of property," she added.
Mrs. Bobick lauded Richard Siemens who, as chairman of the Federation's Develop-
ment Committee, worked untiringly to obtain the HUD approval for the elderly housing
project as well as develop plans for the new campus. "As our community grows and
moves into the 21st Century, people will appreciate, and will hold in growing respect, the
dedication and hard work shown by Dick Siemens. It was thus most appropriate that the
new campus be named for Richard and Carole Siemens," she pointed out.
After the dedication ceremonies refreshments will be served to all assembled. (See in-
vitation on Page 5.)

Israel Bonds
Advisory
Brigadier General Halevy Visits
During a recent luncheon at
Park Place Hotel, Brigadier-
General Yehuda Halevy met and
spoke with several leaders of the
South County Israel Bonds
Cabinet. Halevy, as president and
CEO of the Development Corp.
for Israel, which sells Israel
Bonds, had nothing but praise for
the newly formed local
organization.
"Any community that more
than doubles its previous cam-
paign results must be doing
something right," said Halevy. He
commended the cooperation bet-
ween leadership and staff. "This
is certainly a contributing factor
to South County's success," he
said.
In updating the group, Halevy
was pleased to announce that
Israel's economy is now under
control. "Last month's inflation
rate was only .5 percent. The tri-
ple digit escalation is under con-
trol," said Halevy. Of course,

Temple Emeth Plans Festivities
Temple Emeth has been a
leader in Israel Bonds from the in-
ception of the congregation. "This
year will surpass all others," said
Adeline Kamen, chair of the Israel
Bonds event scheduled for Jan.
26. The magnificent invitation is
in the mail and a huge response is
expected.
Being honored for the Temple is
Harold Kay, who is Mr. Bonds
personified. "When a person has a
question about Bonds, Harold is
there! When a committee needs to
convene for bonds. Harold is
there! When Israel needs help,
Harold is there!," said Lou Med-
win, president of Temple Emeth.
Serving on the Bonds cabinet as
Cash Chairman, Harold is in touch
with New York keeping them ap-
prised of South County's pro-
gress. "There is never a visit to
the office that Harold doesn't
have a check in hand for the pur-
chase of someone's bond," said
Julie Jackson, executive director.
"Harold is a lifeline to Temple
Emeth and a source of inspiration
to our office."
Being honored for Sisterhood is
Leona Eisenstein. Temple Emeth
has depended on her help and
devotion and counts on Leona as a
pillar. "Her entire life has been
devoted to distinguished service
to Israel and the Jewish people,"
said Adeline Kamen. "We hope
the entire Sisterhood will turn out
to give her the honors she
deserves."
Sol Lapidus, having worked
with Temple Brotherhood for
many years, is their natural
honoree for the bond function of
1986. Dedicated to Israel, Temple
and all aspects of Zionism, the
Brotherhood is proud to have Sol
as one of their own. Setting the
pace of high level participation for
Brotherhood will make all its
members turn out on Jan. 26.

Senate Conservatives To Prevent
Ratification Of Genocide Convention
Friday, January 10, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
Jewish Leaders Call For
Action To End Terrorism
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
Senate conservatives
have found a new tactic in
their effort to try to prevent
ratification of the United
Nations Genocide
Convention, a claim that it
will not only harm the
United States but also
Israel.
This became clear when Sens.
Jesse Helms (R. N.C.) and Chic
Hecht (R. Nev.) used this argu-
ment Dec. 5 to prevent unanimous
consent to bring up Helms' own
amendments to the treaty.
Helms said "there are Jewish
citizens who previously strongly
supported this treaty who now re-
alize that Israel will be most likely
the first nation to be victimized by
it."
Helms made this argument
before. But it came as a surprise
when he was supported by Hecht,
who is Jewish, since the Jewish
community has long called for
ratification of the Convention
which was signed in 1949 in the
wake of the Holocaust.
Hecht said he asked "top Jewish
attorneys, international a-
ttorneys" to analyze the treaty
and "it is their opinion that the
genocide treaty would not be in
the best interest of the State of
Israel or the United States of
America."
However, Sen. Howard Metzen-
baum (D., Ohio) replied that "the
American Jewish community
believes that the Genocide Con-
vention should be ratified. The
American Jewish community fur-
ther believes that on the whole
question of genocide, Jews of
other lands, who suffered more
than perhaps any other group in
the world, have an impact, and a
concern about the whole issue of
genocide."
The convention failed to come to
the floor for ratification before
the Senate adjourned. But Senate
Majority Leader Robert Dole (R.,
Kans.) is on record as pledging
that it will be ratified.
"We'll do it this year," Dole said
at the groundbreaking for the
U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
in October. Later, in November,
in an address to the General
Assembly of the Council of Jewish
Federations, he said if it could not
be done before the Senate ad-
journs it would be one of the first
issues in the new year.

The following is brought to our
readers by the South County
Rabbinical Association. If there
are topics you would like our
Rabbis to discuss, please submit

By RABBI
MARK DRATCH
Boca Raton Synagogue
Social scientists have probed
extensively the underlying causes
of Anti-Semitism which have con-
sistently plagued Jewish life.
Political, economic and theological
reasons are often cited to uphold
one thesis or another. Rabbi
Joseph B. Soloveithchik of
Yeshiva University looks to the
first verse in the Book of Exodus
to shed some light on this age-old
irrational enmity.
Exodus begins as follows:
"These are the names of the sons
of Israel who came to Egypt,"
habo-im mitzraymah, each com-
ing with his household. The gram-
matical.form habo-im, in the pre-
sent tense, seems misplaced. It
suggests that they were only now
coming into Egypt when, in fact,
the Israelites had been residing in
Egypt almost 100 years when the
oppression was initiated.
This question was perceived by
the Midrash: "Did they just arrive
in Egypt? Rather, we are inform-
ed that when Joseph, their protec-
tor, died, the oppression began. It
says habo-im because the Egyp-
tians regarded them as new ar-
rivals, as if they had come that
very day .."(Ex. R. 1:4)
This is the methodology of
Jewish persecution. Whatever the
incipient cause or rationale, op-
pression is made feasible by
representing Jews as newcomers
even after centuries of
distinguished residence.
While habo-im is a negative
value and a liability, the term has
also a reassuring connotation
which is a blessing to Jews. It
means, "they remained as they
were when they arrived," retain-
ing ways and values of their
original identity. Such loyalty if
the secret of Jewish survival and
is an antidote to the corrosive ef-
fects of assimilation. Precisely
Rabbi Mark Dratch
tnat which non-Jews decry as
foreign and threatening is the
Jew's badge of honor.
Rabbi Soloveithchik points out
that those who accuse us of ethnic
separatism and elitism must be
enlightened that Jews can only
live wholesomely in a society
which allows for cultural
pluralism, where being different is
not subversive and where unity is
not confused with uniformity.
Jewish values, ideas and prac-
tices, philosophical premises
about G^l and observance of mitz-
vot are not to be bartered away
even for the sake of intergroup
amity.
The apartness and distinc-
tiveness of Israel which are im-
plicit in its habo-im identity can ir-
ritate many non-Jews. Why, they
may ask, is the Jew so restless,
pursuing goals, causes and ways
that are not shared with his non-
Jewish neighbors? Inevitably,
they attach political significance
to what is truly the practice of
religious and cultural pluralism.
Jacob never pledged to Pharoah
that he would sever his attach-
ment to the faith of his fathers. In-
stead, he sent Judah ahead to
establish schools of Torah study.
When he met Pharoah, Jacob
blessed him that "the waters of
the Nile should overflow and ir-
rigate the land," (Rashi, Gen.
47:10), showing his deep commit-
ment to the economic welfare of
the country. The fact that the
Egyptians still regarded the
Israelites as habo-im, in a pe-
jorative sense, is a historical
predicament of the Diaspora. To
Jews, however, habo-im will con-
tinue to be a mark of national
honor and religious integrity.
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that Dole
repeated this pledge on the
Senate floor last week.
Landmark Court
Decision Nixed
BONN (JTA) A landmark
decision by a Frankfurt court
allowing the municipal authorities
to refuse to rent public halls to the
neo-Nazi National Democratic
Party (NPD) has been reversed by
the administrative (higher) court
inKassel.
The reversal represents a vic-
tory for the NPD which had a
long-standing conflict with the
Frankfurt authorities over the
rental of publicly owned premises
for conventions and other events.
It may serve as a precedent in
similar conflicts involving neo-
Nazi groups.
The Kassel court overturned the
lower court's ruling on grounds
that it was based on a law pro-
mulgated by the Allied occupation
forces after World War II which is
no longer valid in the Federal
Republic though it still applies in
Berlin.
Shaw Named
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Steve Shaw of Germantown, Md.

tor of the Jewish War Veterans of

NEW YORK (JTA) Leading Jewish organizations last
weekend urged governments around the world to take decisive action
against terrorists and called for punishment of nations which provide
refuge to terrorists.
At a special press conference, Kenneth Bialkin, chairman of the
Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations,
issued a hard-hitting statement saying that the Palestinian terrorist
war "against the travelling public requires urgent action by the interna-
tional community. The indiscriminate terror in Rome and Vienna
reflects a barbarism and a primitive mentality which cannot be reached
by reason or the rule of law."
HE OUTLINED EIGHT steps that must be taken to end the
scourge of terrorism:
"Serve notice that support for the PLO and other Palestinian ter-
ror groups must end. Saudi Arabia must end its payments of extortion
which finances this grotesque machine; Jordan must dose the PLO
bases it has sanctioned; Tunisia must expel the PLO forces who train
and plan; Syria and Iraq must terminate their maintenance of PLO fac-
tions; and Libya must be called to account.
"Diplomatic support must cease; the PLO observer delegation to
the UN must be expelled and their offices in New York closed. France,
Turkey, Greece, Spain, Italy, Cyprus and other European countries
must withdraw their recognition and diplomatic support from the PLO.
PLO offices in those countries should be shut.
"Countries which give sanctuary or free passage to known
murderers must be warned that consequences will follow their craven
act. Egypt and Yugoslavia, for example, must not be free to repeat
their abetting the flight of the murderers of the Achille Lauro.
"Leaders must be extradited and brought to justice damage
suits by victims must be heard and enforced in courts of law and vic-
tims compensated by the PLO.
"Diplomatic and economic sanctions must be taken against those
countries who fail to cooperate in an international program to combat
terrorism and deny sanctuary to leaders and followers of the PLO. For
example, aircraft landing rights might be denied to countries which sup-
port terrorism by diplomatic or financial means.
"World opinion must be mobilized against the deception and
deceit of Palestinian radicals who clothe their cause in the language of
freedom and human rights but whose real message and cause is con-
quest and rejection of peaceful coexistence with Israel.
"We support Secretary of State Shultz in his rejection of any
political justification for terrorist acts, and we call upon the United Na-
tions and the nations of the free world to develop a program of action
which goes beyond the welcome words of condemnation of terrorism.
"Sadly, but necessarily, so long as the rule of law cannot cope
with terrorism, the right and duty of national sovereignty and protec-
tion must be recognized to take action against those responsible for ter-
rorist acts.
"Our Ambassador to the United Nations should call for an
emergency session of the UN Security Council to censure Libya and
Syria for their continuing support of terrorists in violation of recently
adopted General Assembly and Security Council resolutions condemn-
ing terrorism."
THE PLO in its various factions and groups have placed themselves
outside the community of decent peoples and "must be sanctioned by
the world community," Bialkin told the press conference.
He declared, "It is not enough to say that the murderers should be
brought to justice. They are only the tools, the fanatic fools who carry
out the orders that are fashioned in Damascus, in Tripoli, In Amman, in
Baghdad and in Tunis. Is is the leaders and planners who must be
brought to justice and called to account for their crimes against inno-
cent civilians." Continuing, Bialkin said:
"Unfortunately, rhetoric will not stop them. Those nations which
decry violence and terrorism while at the same time supporting the
political aims of the PLO give a double message which, in effect, en-
courages repetition of those outrages. So-called moderate Arab states
like Jordan and Tunisia provide bases for the recruitment and training
of terrorists; Saudi Arabia provides them funding; Egypt gives them
sanctuary and protection; Syria and Libya arm them and lanuch their
depredations. Iraq provides bases and arms.
"WESTERN DEMOCRACIES give them support and respect by
diplomatic recognition and by permitting them to have offices. Greece,
Spain, Italy, Austria, and France have cordial diplomatic links; Tukey
and Cyprus give them diplomatic status; the UN grants them observer
status and the Soviets provide support and arms. Terrorism is en-
couraged by UN condemnations of Israel and by the failure to react to
outrages The decent people of the world can no longer permit this
double standard."
Gerald Kraft, president of B'nai B'rith, declared that "the time has
come for all nations to stop coddling and being cowed by ter-
rorists." He said that the attacks in Rome and Vienna were "the in-
evitable result of Italy's indecisive dealing" with the hijackers of the
Achille Lauro cruise ship, which could only encourage new acts of ter-
rorism. What happened last week, Kraft added, "was the inevitable
result."
Abraham Foxman, associate national director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, said the attacks "leave us with a
greater urgency to achieve concerted international.action against ter-
rorists and those who would abet them. We must begin by engaging in a
worldwide offensive against terrorism. No legitimacy can be given to
those involved. No nation which provides refuge should be
unpunished."
DAVID GORDIS, executive vice president of the American Jewish
Committee, called upon "those of our European allies who have adopted
a policy of appeasement toward Arab-instigated terrorism to end, once
and for all, this senseless course of action. These nations must exami-
their own responsibility for this latest outrage."
Rabbi William Berkowitz, president of the American Jewish
Heritage r ^-tion, urged President Reagan, in a cable, that an "im-
mediate mit conference of the free world nations be convened
at the higi.eai ic .els in order t nake clear western resolve against
terror, to coordinate methods curity and ways of combatting ter-
ror, and must resolve to pressure those nations which support ter-
rorism, or play hosts to terrorist leaders to do so no more."

Less Zionism, More Aliya
The Jerusalem Post's Charles
Hoffman describes some new ways
of promoting American aliya.
Why keep preaching classical
Zionist dogmas when in the vast
majority of cases this can only be
counter-productive to increasing
aliya from America? In fact, it
may be that less "Zionism" equals
more aliya.
Living proof of the validity of
this heretical proposition can be
found at 515 Park Avenue, in the
World Zionist Organization office
on the eighth floor that commands
the entire network of aliya
emissaries in North America.
Here sits Rabbi Chaim Shine, the
director of the Aliya Centre, who
is in his second year on the job.
Shine travels around the coun-
try putting in brief appearances at
Jewish gatherings and especially
at Israel program fairs, where
aliya is always high on the agenda.
When he speaks at these con-
ferences, he usually delivers a
tirade of gloom and doom about
the future of American Jewry,
leading always to the conclusion
that only aliya can save the disap-
pearing remnant.
One of his favorite images of the
precarious situation of Diaspora
Jewry is that of the wealthy man
who inadvertently builds himself a
mansion on a river of ice, which
will one day collapse beneath him
when the weather suddenly
changes.
This may go over fantastically
in the Orthodox ghettos of
Brooklyn and Queens, but it won't
play in Peoria, or in Washington,
DC. or Los Angeles. In fact, this
type of crude exhortation, where
Jews are urged to jump into the
nearest lifeboat before their ship
sinks, usually has the effect of
alienating those in the audience
who might have otherwise been
disposed to support aliya in their
communities.
Lay leaders and professionals in
Jewish communities around the
country will simply not be
motivated to support aliya if they
feel the premise of such support is
that the communities they call
home and to which they have
given years of service are doomed
to disappear.
It need not be this way.
Speakers on the "aliya circuit'
would do well to emulate the ap-
proach of Israel's ambassador to
the UN, Binyamin Netanyahu,
who is a much sought-after
speaker in general, and in par-
ticular for Israel program fairs.
He presents the subject of aliya in
a way that arouses positive Jewish
feelings in his audience, while
avoiding any hint of preaching.
This type of approach won't
make instant converts, nor should
it strive for this; but it can get
some people to start thinking
about aliya as an answer to what
is missing in their lives as Jews.
The practical follow-up must come
from aliya supporters in the com-
munity. Tirades of gloom and
doom can create neither the per-
sonal interest in aliya nor the
resources and the will in the com-
munity to further the "aliya pro-
cess" on the road to its ultimate
goal.
What forces in Israel and
America are capable, then, of
working together to awaken a
positive potential for aliya
which I believe exists and to
translate it into concrete
achievements?
Like it or not, American
Zionism is a weak reed to lean on
for such an ambitious undertak-
ing, which requires access to
funds and clout in local com-
munities two commodities the
American Zionist movement is
lacking. This movement, which
claims one million members in 16
different organizations, has never
been very influential on the
American Jewish scene and dur-
ing the last 15 years it has even
lost some of its standing with the
WZO leadership in Jerusalem.
At the emerging power-center
of American Jewry are the local
federations and their national ex-
tensions, the United Jewish Ap-
peal and the Council of Jewish
Federations. The professional and
lay leaders of the community
federations are the ones who pro-
duce most of the cash that fuels
the Jewish Agency and that in-
directly supports the WZO.
Furthermore, many of the
federation leaders are self-styled
"New Zionists," meaning that
they are fervent supporters of
Israel and accept the principles of
the WZO's 1968 platform, but
have not bothered to affiliate
themselves with an American
Zionist organization.
Among these principles
which contain none of the classical
Zionist formulations denigrating
Diaspora Jewry are the affir-
mation of the "centrality of
Israel" for the Jewish people and
the ingathering of the Jewish peo-
ple in Eretz Yisrael through
"aliya from all lands." In other
words, aliya is not just for op-
pressed Jews.
The "non-Zionists" who used to
dominate the philanthropic bodies
that support Israel are a vanishing
species.
In recent years American
Zionists have had the uneasy feel-
ing of being displaced in the affec-
tions of Jerusalem, and this has
grown more evident since the
Caesarea Process was launched in
1981. Its aim was to redefine the
relations between the two sets of
"partners" responsible for the
operation of the Jewish Agency;
the WZO and the leading Jewish
philanthropic bodies in the
Diaspora. This process has
brought Diaspora federation
leaders into closer and more fre-
quent contact with the WZO
leadership. At the local communi-
ty level, it has pushed the Zionist
organizations deeper into the
shadows of redundancy.
In all fairness, however, it
should be noted that this unen-

viable position is in part a result of
the success of American Zionism
in getting Israel-related issues
and programs, including the once-
taboo subject of aliya, onto the
community agenda. Each step for-
ward in making Israel and aliya
part of the concerns of the com-
munity as a whole diminished the
need for a separate organization
to keep the Zionist flame burning.
Since the mid-1970s, the slogan
"We are all Zionists" has in many
ways become a reality.
One of the outcomes of the
Caesarea Process has been an
undertaking by the Diaspora
philanthropists who jointly con-
trol the Jewish Agency to pro-
mote and support aliya from
Western countries, primarily the
U.S.
Furthermore, the chairman of
the Agency Board of Governors,
Jerrold Hoffberger of Baltimore,
weighed in two years ago just
after he was elected with a major
statement that aliya from North
America should become a higher
priority for federations. He said
that with proper community back-
ing and organization, it would not
be unreasonable to reach the goal
of 15,000 olim a year by the end of
the decade, compared with 3,000 a
year at present.
Some Israelis will, no doubt,
react to these developments by
saying: "That's all we need, more
slogans about the importance of
aliya from leaders who would
never consider such a step
themselves. Isn't that what we've
heard all these years from the so-
called Zionists in America? What
good will it do to hear it now from
a non-Zionist, or a New Zionist or
whatever he calls himself?"
Surely the proof of this pudding
will be in the eating. But it seems
preferrable to hear Jewish leaders
with clout and money make a com-
mitment to increase aliya from the
States than to listen to the same
weary, ineffectual litany of
slogans about aliya from the seat
of the Zionist establishement at
515 Park Avenue.
Will anyone insist on checking
Hoffberger's "Zionist" member-
ship card or motivation if he and
his fellow federation leaders
deliver the 15,000 olim a year?
Alternatively, has anyone propos-
ed revoking the membership cards
of the establishment Zionists at
515 Park Avenue because they
have neither made aliya
themselves nor encouraged a
greater number of American Jews
to do so?
Motivation and ideology are not
the issue here, but rather who can
deliver. It is gradually becoming
fashionable for federation leaders
to promote aliya, because support
for aliya from the West is perceiv-
ed as part of a federation's
general obligation to "help Israel"
and to help members of their com-
munity who choose the "positive
Jewish option" of living in Israel.
They are not motivated by the
classical Zionist imperative to
restore the vast majority of the
Jewish people to its homeland, or
by a sense that American Jewry is
doomed. And this is perfectly
understandable, given the amor-
phous, non-ideological "pro-
Israel" sentiments common to the
great mass of American Jewry.
Lest anyone should draw the
mistaken conclusion that there
are no more old-fashioned Zionists
left in the States who actually
believe in the classical dogmas and
who are fervently committed to
making aliya. I should mention
Telem, the Movement for Zionist
Fulfilment set up in 1979.
Telem has enlisted hundreds of
enthusiastic, idealistic young peo-
ple from all over the country,
most of them in their twenties.
One "f their favorite pasttimes is
sniping at their elders in the
American Zionist establishment
for being preoccupied with fund-
raising and political work for
Israel and neglecting the
ideological bottom line: true
Zionist fulfilment through aliya.
While I personally have a high
regard for these young people and
for their shlihim, who have
created a vibrant movement vir-
tually out of nothing, I do not
believe that Telem can ever be a
major force in promoting aliya. Its
ideological stridency puts it out of
step with most committed young
Jews, who have a more laid-back
approach to things these days,
and with the Jewish establish-
ment, which finds Zionist "true
believers" hard to work with.
That puts us back where we
started, with the federations and
their growing interest in en-
couraging aliya. As a result of the
Caesarea Process, there are now
five North American communities
Milwaukee, Atlanta, Toronto,
Los Angeles and Miami that
have launched demonstration pro-
jects for developing models of
community support for aliya.
These projects are intended to go
beyond support for aliya provided
since the late 1970s in a number of
communities by Aliya Councils.
Typically, Los Angeles is out in
front with a plan for integrating
the work of the aliya shalxah bas-
ed there with that of community
organizations, primarily the
federation. This would help over-
come his main problems, which
are gaining access to mainstream
community forums and acquiring
legitimacy for aliya as an option
for Jewish fulfilment. The Aliya
Department is ready to go ahead
with the plan, but Other forces in
the WZO are wary.
The project is based on the prin-
ciple of partnership, which means
joint responsibility with the WZO
for the work of the envoy, and
joint funding. Eventually, the
federation will also establish a
loan fund for its olim. It already
has a well-developed "hometown
group" of LA olim in Israel which
helps newcomers in a variety of
ways.
This past year the federation
took part in a large Israel pro-
gram fair initiated by the local
Zionist organizations. For some
time now, the federation has had
an Israel Programme Committee
to promote visits to Israel and its
own summer ulpan in Israel for
teenagers. All this fits in with the
active LA involvement in its two
Project Renewal communities.
Eventually, the federation
would like to review the stationing
of all WZO emissaries in LA, with
a view to eliminating duplication,
integrating them with community
institutions and rendering them
more effective. There are now
close to a dozen shlihim there,
sent by different departments.
with little i iMidination between
them. This strikes the cost-
conscious federation leaders as
wasteful, and they are right.
Eventually, then, the "aliya pro-
cess" would start with a visit to
Israel, followed by periods of
study or volunteer work and talks
with shlihim in LA or with former
Angelenos in Israel. Then would
come the move to Israel, assisted
with a federation loan, and rein-
forced by the concern of other
olim from LA and the federation's
Jerusalem office. All this would be
organized jointly by the WZO and
the federation. One might also en-
visage a temporary return to LA
as an emissary by olim who have
"made it," and can impart their
experiences to others.
At each stage of the process
some would no doubt drop out, but
considering that "aliya is not for
everybody," this should be no
cause for shame or bitterness. The
number of olim, however, should
eventually be higher than it is
now, and those who do stay would
be better prepared and looked
after.
There will surely be a major role
in this scenario, which will no
doubt be played out in other com-
munities over the years, for the
Association of Americans and
Canadians in Israel. The AACI
has already made creative con-
tributions to cultivating direct ties
between community institutions
in the States and olim from these
communities in Israel, which it
has organized in "hometown
groups." The AACI program for
sending successful olim back to
the States on speaking tours as
"short-term shlihim" has also pro-
ven its value.
All this points to a dilemma for
the WZO. It originally took in the
Diaspora philanthropists as "part-
ners" in the Jewish Agency, hop-
ing that this would increase con-
tributions, which it did. But it also
made Zionists out of them, and
made them acutely aware of the
shortcomings of the WZO in car-
rying out its work abroad. Now
that the federation leaders are
saying, "We can do it better,"
who can legitimately deny them
the right to try?
Having invited the Diaspora
philanthropists to be partners in
the Agency's work in Israel, can
the WZO spurn the Diaspora in-
vitation to partnership in the
Zionist endeavor abroad? To do so
might protect the WZO's short-
term political interests, but at the
expense of long-term gains for
Israel.

Religious Parties Fail In Bid On
'Who Is A Jew' Amendment
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
religious parties made an
unscheduled attempt to bring the
"Who is a Jew" amendment to the
Law of Return before the Knesset
for a vote. They pulled back when
it became apparent the measure
would be defeated as it has been
twice before in recent years.
In that event, it could not be
reintroduced for six months, ac-
cording to Knesset rules. The Or-
thodox bloc decided at the last mo-
ment to shelve the bill for the time
being. Some religious MKs and
lobbyists for the Lubavitch
Hasidic movement angrily accus-
ed the Labor Party leadership of
reneging on a promise to lift party
discipline, allowing Labor MKs to
vote as they pleased.
THE RELIGIOUS parties
muster only 12 votes in the
Knesset but they believe they can
count on religious and'rightwiii^
MKs in other parties to support
the controversial measure. The
amendment to the Law of Return
would add the phrase "according
to halacha" to the provision of the
law which defines a Jew as so-
meone born of a Jewish mother or
converted.
If adopted, the amendment
would bar persons converted by
Conservative or Reform rabbis
abroad from automatic citizenship
on arrival in Israel to settle. The
Conservative and Reform
movements fiercely oppose the
amendment, which they consider
dangerously divisive.

Moscow and Jerusalem
By
ARTHUR JAY KLINGHOFFER
Progress is being made toward
convening an international con-
ference on the Arab-Israeli con-
flict, judging by the great flurry of
diplomatic activity in recent mon-
ths. Israel, which had previously
opposed Soviet participation in
such a conclave, has now announc-
ed that it is willing to accept
Moscow, provided the latter
establishes diplomatic relations
with Israel or permits wider
Jewish emigration. Jordan too
feels that it must permit Soviet
participation because Hussein
needs a diplomatic umbrella to
cover intended bilateral negotia-
tions with Israel. Even Egypt and
Saudi Arabia favor a Soviet role,
not only out of sympathy for Jor-
dan's quandary but also to bring
in a power to countervail
American support for Israel.
The Soviet Union, which the
United States has effectively ex-
cluded from the negotiating pro-
cess since the Geneva Conference
of December, 1973, now does not
want to lose a possible opportuni-
ty for reentrance. Only briefly in
1977 did it appear that the Soviets
might secure a role, but that
possibility was eliminated when
Sadat journeyed to Jerusalem and
bilateral Egyptian-Israeli
diplomacy was resumed. The
Soviet Union's basic problem
since 1967 its refusal to
reestablish relations with Israel
has usually relegated Moscow to
the diplomatic sidelines. Now, in
order to play a more active role,
the Soviets realize that they must
make some conciliatory gesture
toward Jerusalem. Hence, the Ju-
ly ambassadorial session in
France and the October announce-
ment that Poland and Israel will
establish consular interest sec-
tions are developments which
must be analyzed within the con-
text of Arab-Israeli peace pro-
spects. Since Poland would not
have acted without Soviet ap-
proval, Warsaw can only be view-
ed as a stalking horse for Moscow.
At the same time, Poland has its
own interest to advance. For ex-
ample, it hopes that its gesture
toward Israel will garner Poland
some goodwill in the United
States Congress, an advantage
which could facilitate the granting
of American aid to the
beleaguered Polish economy.
Poland also hopes to further its
quest for membership in both the
World Bank and the International
Monetary Fund.
Israel, always receptive to
resuming diplomatic relations
with the Soviet Union, has now
modified its terms. In the past,
Israel would accept nothing less
Major Terrorist
Incidents In 1985
NEW YORK (JTA) The airport massacres in Rome and
Vienna last Friday capped a year of heightened terrorist attacks
in Latin America, the Middle East and Western Europe. This is a
list of major international terrorist acts of 1985:
Jan. 25 The leftwing terrorist group Direct Action claims
responsibility for killing French Defense Ministry official Rene
Audran outside his home in a Paris suburb.
Feb. 1 Red Army Faction terrorist kill West German in-
dustrialist Ernst Zimmerman in his suburban Munich home.
March 2 Terrorism bomb the West German Embassy and
British Ambassador's residence in Athens.
March 8 Red Army Faction terrorists set off bombs in three
West German cities in support of British coal miners who ended a
year-long strike earlier in the week. In Beirut, 80 people are killed
when a car bomb explodes outside an apartment building.
May 25 An Iraqi terrorist crashes a car loaded with ex-
plosives into the Emir of Kuwait's motorcade, killing himself and
three others. The Kuwaiti ruler receives minor injuries.
June 14 Two Arab gunmen hijack a TWA jetliner, kill U.S.
Navy seaman Robert Stethem and demand that Israel release 700
Lebanese Shiite Moslem prisoners in exchange for 36 American
hostages. Also that day, in Beirut, two men drive a car filled with
explosives into a Lebanese army post, killing 23.
Jane 18 A three-day series of explosions, apparently in sup-
port of a strike by Communist-controlled unions, begins in Bogota
and at least three other Colombian cities.
June 19 A suitcase bomb explodes at Frankfurt airport, kill-
ing three people and injuring 42. In Tripoli, Lebanon, a car bomb
destroys a candy shop killing at least 60 and wounding 100. In San
Salvador, gunmen fire into crowded cafes, killing 13, including
four off-duty U.S. Marines and two other Americans. The U.S.
Embassy blames the attack on leftist guerrillas.
June 20 Five bombs go off in Katmandu, Nepal, killing seven
people, including a National Assembly leader, and injuring 23.
Jane 23 Plastic explosives kill two baggage handlers at
Tokyo's airport. Sabotage is suspected in the crash of an Air India
jet the same day in which 329 are killed.
Aug. 8 Terrorists kill an American soldier and bomb the U.S.
Rhein-Main Air Base near Frankfurt. Authorities blame the lef-
tist Red Army faction.
Sept. 16 Thirty-nine people are injured in a grenade attack at
a fashionable cafe on Rome's Via Veneto. A Palestinian is charg-
ed in connection with the incident.
Sept. 25 Three Israelis are killed on a yacht in Cyprus.
Sept. 30 Gunmen kidnap three Soviet diplomats and an Em-
bassy doctor in Beirut. One of the diplomats is found dead Oct. 2.
Oct. 7 New Yorker Leon Klinghoffer is killed during the hi-
jacking of the Italian cruise ship Achille Lauro. They surrender
Oct. 9.
Nov. f Rebels seize Colombia's federal court building in
downtown Bogota, and army troops recapture the Palace of
Justice in an assault after a 28-hour seige. The Justice Ministry
says 95 people, including 11 Supreme Court Justices, are killed.
Nov. 23 An Egyptian plane is hijacked on a flight from
Athens to Malta. Egyptian commandos storm the plane the next
day and 60 people are killed.
than full diplomatic relations, re-
jecting as "back-door diplomacy,"
Moscow's proposals for
establishing consular interest sec-
tions as a first step. Hence,
Israel's new agreement with
Poland (an even more indirect
route to Moscow) clearly
represents a reversal of Israel's
previous position. Why is Israel
following this new path?
Curiously, the groundwork was
laid during Begin's tenure as
prime minister, with the impetus
coming from the right wing of the
Likud party and from the even
more anti-communist Tehiya par-
ty. Their nationalistic proclivities
led them to favor improved
Soviet-Israeli relations in the hope
that by obtaining greater freedom
of action vis-a-vis the United
States, Israel would be able to
secure the emigration of greater
numbers of Soviet Jews.
Laborites are willing to try this
approach but, more importantly,
they have reached the conclusion
that the "Jordanian option" can-
not be pursued without an inter-
national cover for Hussein's
diplomacy. Hence, Israel must
make overtures to Moscow in
order to encourage Soviet par-
ticipation at a peace conference.
In effect, the Israeli opening
toward the Soviet Union permits
Peres and the Laborites to work
toward their long-cherished "Jor-
danian option" while still main-
taining the support of the
Knesset's right wing. Most
members of Likud (and certainly
of Tehiya) oppose making conces-
sions on the West Bank, but they
are mollified by expectation of
gains in other areas that may
arise from improved ties between
Moscow and Jerusalem. Thus, it is
especially significant that Peres'
comments are accompanied by
strong statements in support of
Soviet Jewish emigration. Fur-
ther impetus is lent by France
agreeing to fly Jews directly from
the Soviet Union to Israel, an
endeavor in which the Soviet
government appears to be
cooperating.
The Soviet Union's recent deci-
sion to establish diplomatic rela-
tions with Oman is quite relevant
to the process of resolving the
Arab-Israeli conflict. As the
Soviet Union improves its rela-
tions with Israel, Moscow must be
careful to maintain a balanced ap-
proach in order to forestall an
Arab backlash. Thus, while
holding out a hand toward
Jerusalem through the Polish-
Israeli agreement, the Soviets
hold out the other hand toward
Riyadh through their new agree-
ment with Oman. Also germane is
Egyptian and Jordanian backing
for the Soviet ventures.
Further contributing to
diplomatic momentum is Peres'
imminent replacement as prime
minister next fall by his opposite
number in the governing coalition,
Likud's Yitzhak Shamir. Jordan
therefore wants to advance the
diplomatic process as far as possi-
ble while the Laborites are still in
the dominant position; the Soviet
Union has the same perspective.
Recent coverage of Peres in -the
Soviet media has been very
moderate in tone, and all the
faults ascribed to Israeli policy are
blamed on Likud members of the
coalition. Of course, Peres too
realizes that a West Bank agree-
ment would be less likely under
Shamir's government; hence,
Peres' exaggerated public em-
phasis on cultivating' a new spirit
with Moscow is probably a way of
assuring Hussein of Israel's con-
tinued interest in convening an in-
ternational conference. Recogniz-
ing that the PLO is currently
weak and divided, Peres and Hus-
sein want to come to an agree-
ment while the time is ripe.
Neither an international con-
ference nor a settlement is immi-
nent. Numerous obstacles and
unanswered questions remain.
(1) Who will represent the
Palestinians? Will they have their
own delegation? Or will they in-
stead participate in a joint
Jordanian-Palestinian delegation?
(2) Will Arafat possibly be
reconciled with the Damascus-
based components of the PLO in
order to break away from
Hussein?
(3) What role will Syria play?
Will it attempt to undermine the
conference? Or will it attend? Will
the Soviet Union encourage
Syrian participation? (In 1973,
Damascus refused a seat at the
bargaining table even though the
Soviet Union served as co-
chairman.)
(4) What proposals will be made
regarding Jerusalem? (This issue
has been avoided so far, but Hus-
sein will surely raise it.)
(5) Will the United States help
organize a conference? Or will it
drag its feet? (The Reagan Plan
did not envision Soviet participa-
tion in negotiations, and
Republican administrations
generally have opposed the com-
prehensive approach to peace,
preferring step-by-step diplomacy
facilitated by American
mediation.)
(6) Will the issue of Soviet
Jewish emigration become linked
to the Arab-Israeli negotiating
process? (So far, the two have
been kept separate, but the Soviet
Union may now elicit concessions
on the part of the Israelis by pro-
mising to permit more Jews to
emigrate.)
The Soviet Union cares more
about the form of a conference
than about the terms of any settle-
ment. Its aim is to play a role as a
conference co-chairman and as a
guarantor of a negotiated peace.
In these capacities it would pro-
bably be willing to compromise on
the future status of the Golan
Heights and Jerusalem. The
Soviets will display less flexibility
in regard to the West Bank and
Gaza, as they wish to continue to
appear to champion the Palesti-
nian cause. However, the Soviets
will remain more flexible vis-a-vis
the creation of an independent
Palestinian state, as they may be
willing to settle for some form of
autonomy or federation. On the
issue of Jordanian-Palestinian
linkage, Moscow does not know
which way to lean as regards a
common negotiating team or a
final territorial solution. And
whether Soviet support should go
to Arafat or, instead, to the
Syrian-based PLO factions is even
more problematical.
The Israeli and Jordanian
governments are seriously in-
terested in exploring the
possibilities for a settlement, but
each side is laboring under for-
midable constraints. Peres'
leeway is limited by coalition
politics and West Bank settlers;
Hussein's ever-present albatross
has been the questionable
legitimacy of speaking on behalf
of Palestinian interests. An inter-
national conference may provide a
framework acceptable to all par-
ties, but it will likely go through a
round of rancor before it produces
reconciliation.

Federation/UJA 1986 Campaign Update
Rabbi Meyer of Argentina To
Address Masada Dinner
The Masada Division's Annual
Dinner, slated for Thursday, Jan.
30, will hear a world-famous
authority on the subject of Latin
American Jewry.
American-born Rabbi Marshall
T. Meyer, who grew up in Nor-
wich, Conn., was graduated from
Dartmouth College and was or-
dained at the Jewish Theological
Seminary. He then spent more
than 20 years in South America,
where he currently serves as the
rabbi of Congregation Israelita de
la Republica Argentina.
Rabbi Meyer has received the
"Order of the Liberator San Mar-
tin" from the President of Argen-
tina that country's highest
award for human rights
achievements and the B'nai
B'rith International's Dor LeDor
Award. He is co-president of the
Jewish Movement for Human
Rights in Argentina, and vice-
president of the UJA there.
Among his professional
achievements, Rabbi Meyer
counts the founding and editing of
the "Quarterly Spanish-Jewish
Journal" of Buenos Aires, foun-
ding and directing Camp Raman
in Rio de Janeiro and Camp Mar
del Plata in Argentina.
Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer
He has appeared in numerous
radio and television programs as
an expert on Latin American
Jewish affairs all over the world,
including three appearances on
the news program "60 Minutes."
He has had numerous essays and
articles published in newspapers
and magazines, and has been
listed in "Who's Who in the
World," as well as "Who's Who In
Israel" and the Encyclopaedia
Britannica.
Rabbi Meyer's talk at the
Masada Division Dinner coincides
with the Community Theme mov-
ing into the year's segment deal-
ing with Latin American Jewry,
and will also set some of the
background for those intending to
take part in the special mission to
South America in which South
County will take part along with
the other Gold Coast Federations,
in March.
The Masada Dinner will be
hosted by Shirley and Budd Sere-
tean of Boca West. Honorees at
the event will be Abner and
Mildred Levine of Del-Aire, who
have shown outstanding dedica-
tion to community and philan-
thropic work both locally and in
their northern community, as well
as on behalf of Israel, and have
personified the spirit of the Com-
munity Theme: "INTO THE 21st
CENTURY ONE DREAM,
ONE PEOPLE, ONE
DESTINY." The Masada Dinner
is open to those making gifts of
$6,500 or more to the Federa-
tion/UJA Campaign. It is chaired
this year by Shep Kaufman, with
Kenneth Endelson, Benjamin
Pressner and Seymour Rappaport
as associate chairmen.
Theme, Dynamic Speaker
At Lion of Judah Event
The guests at the Lion of Judah
Luncheon, to be held this Monday,
Jan. 13 at the home of Irma Fier
in Bocaire, are in for a treat.
Elaine Winik, whose name is
synonymous with innovative
leadership in philanthropy and
Jewish life, will be the guest
speaker.
Mrs. Winik is not only a
dynamic and knowledgeable
speaker she grew up in a family
whose life revolved around Jewish
community work, and has kept up
the tradition. Her father, Samuel
Kappel, was one of the founders of
the UJA. Her mother headed the
Women's Division in Brooklyn (at
a time when the Jewish population
there was one of the largest of any
community in the world).
She has held virtually every ma-
jor post in the Women's Division
in New York, and many top posts
in the Federation there, including
that of general chairperson of the
UJA Campaign of Greater New
York for four years running. She
is a past president of the National
Women's Division of the UJA,
and a member of the National Ex-
ecutive Committee.

Rabin Accuses Syria Of Trying
To Squelch The Peace Process
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin accused Syria of try-
ing to prevent a repetition
of the process that led to
Israel's peace treaty with
Egypt in 1979. He also
warned that while the
Syrians have not achieved
strategic priority with
Israel, they could not always
be trusted to behave ra-
tional ly and could
precipitate a war with Israel
which Israel does not want
but must be prepared for.
Rabin made his remarks in an
address to United Jewish Appeal
conference delegates here and in a
speech to the weekly meeting of
the Industrial and Commercial
Club in Tel Aviv. Israel's logic is
not necessarily Syria's logic, he
told the UJA group, observing
that in the past "we made the
mistake of assuming their logic is
ours or ours is theirs."
Therefore, he suggested,
although Israel's best interest is
to prevent a war, Israel must be
prepared to deal with mistakes"
on the part of the Syrians and that
means possessing a strong deter-
rent force.
The Defense Minister reiterated
that there is no tension whatever
on the Golan Heights where the
Israeli and Syrian armies face
each other. For the past 10 years,
he said, there have been no ter-
rorist attempts across the Syrian-
Israeli border, though Syria was
pushing terrorism through
Lebanon and encouraging it from
Jordan, he said.
Rabin's reassurances about the
situation on the Golan Heights
followed a report in the London-
based Jane's Defense Weekly that
the Syrian army was poised to at-
tack Israel on the Golan Heights.
Israel promptly denied such a
situation exists.

Israel And Poland Are No Longer Poles Apart
By HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Poles are invading Israel this
month but it is an artistic
invasion.
The Warsaw National Opera
last week gave its Israeli premiere
of "Mannikins," based on a story
by Polish-Jewish writer Bruno
Schultz, at a peformance at the
Cameri Theater, its hosts in
Israel, attended by President
Chaim Herzog, Prime Minister
Shimon Peres and Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
As the Warsaw Opera group
was preparing to go on stage,
another Polish theater group,
Free Health
Insurance
Chopped
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Knesset Finance and House com-
mittees acted this week to end
free health insurance for some
4,000 people, including Cabinet
ministers and their deputies,
judges of the civil and religious
courts and Knesset members
themselves. Senior civil servants
whose wages are linked to those
of deputy Cabinet rank, are
threatened as well with cuts in
their health benefits.
The beneficiaries were entitled
to free coverage both at home and
abroad. For Knesset members
and their spouses, the benefits
were a lifetime privilege. Their
children were covered up to the
age of 18. Knesset members
recieved over a half billion Shekels
in health insurance funds during
the first half of fiscal 1985. The
Finance Committee has allowed
for appeals and a special subcom-
mittee will hear appeals from the
judiciary.
Tadeusz Kantor's "Crico 2," was
arriving at Ben-Gurion Airport, to
give the first performance here of
its "Dead Class" at the Beit
Lessin's Warehouse Theater in
the old Jaffa port.
THE PERFORMANCES of the
two threats mark the first visit by
a Polish cultural group since War-
saw broke off diplomatic relations
with Israel in 1967.
Both theatrical productions use
a combination of puppets and live
actors, and the emphasis on visual
effects make them accessible to
audiences who do not understand
Polish.
The Cricot 2 group is one of the
best-known troupes in experimen-
tal theater. "Dead Class" is

described as an exercise in

the school of their youth and see
themselves as they were in the
form of puppets.
PLANS FOR Polish perfor-
mances here next year include
visits by the Mazowsze Folklore
Ensemble and the Warsaw Opera
Ballet whose director, Josef Sza-
jna, will also be coming to work at
the Habimah National Theater.
Observers are speculating
whether the reopening of cultural
exchanges heralds a new ap-
proach to Israel by the Warsaw
government. The Israel Philhar-
monic Orchestra is reported to
have an as yet unofficial invitation
to visit Poland next year for a
series of performances.
It was reported recently that
Israel and Poland may soon ex-
change diplomatic representatives
in a first step towards renewed
full diplomatic relations.
Another Communist bloc ar-
tistic group to come to Israel is
the Rumanian Rhapsody folklore
dance group. It is due in Israel
next week, for six performances.
The group, which is bringing 26
dancers, singers and musicians
was established over 100 years.

COMMITTEE TO ESTABLISH
THE BERT SALES MEMORIAL FOREST
IN ISRAEL
Shalom:
Recently, we suffered the passing of Bert Sales
who skillfully directed numerous campaigns in
our community for The Development
Corporation for Israel Like you, we mourn the
loss of Bert whose efforts and personal sacrifices
propelled our community into the national fore-
front in the development of the State of Israel.
We are writing to you in order that a suitable
memorial for Bert be established in his beloved
Land of Israel.
Bert's intense interest in the Land of Israel, and
that of his wife, Marilyn, has led us to insure that
a suitable memorial be established the JNF-
Bert Sales Memorial Forest. To achieve this goal,
we have the cooperation of the Jewish National
Fund which is the agency responsible for the
development, reclamation and afforestation of
the Land of Israel. We feel that a forest planted
in memory of Bert Sales in Israel would be a
fitting and living memorial
We urge you, as a vital member of our com-
munity, to consider the purchase of a bond that
can be used to fund this memorial on behalf of
Bert Sales. A bond can be purchased in the name
of the Jewish National Fund (Keren Kayemeth
Lelarael), Inc., or one which you may own can be
assigned to the JNF. In either case, the purchase
of bonds will further enable the development of
the State of Israel while their assignment to
JNF will allow us to develop the Land of Israel
as we honor the memory of Bert Sales.
If you wish to make a cash gift, you may do so by
sending a check payable to JNF-Bert Sales
Memorial Forest'. A gift of $1,000 will allow us to
plant a Garden of 200 trees; $500 will plant a
Garden of 100 trees and 20 trees will be planted
for a gift of $100. Your gift (cash or bond) is tax
deductible.
Your immediate attention to this community
effort is important and will be deeply appreciated
by his family, friends and his colleagues through-
out the country. If you have any questions,
please feel free to call the Jewish National Fund
office in Fort Lauderdale at 561-4812 or the local
office of Israel Bonds at 686-8611.

HAPPENINGS
An Agency of the South County Jewish Federation
Bernie Volk, Wheelers presi-
dent, with Harold Cohen and
the two bikes donated to the
SCJF.
WHEELERS
OF KINGSPOINT
DONATE BICYCLES
The Wheelers of Kingspoint last
month donated two bicycles to the
South County Jewish Federation.
The bicycles one boys' and one
girls' were donated in order to
help two needy families provide a
better Hanukah for their children.
Spencer Gellert, executive
director of Jewish Family and
Children Services and Harold
Cohen, executive director of the
Adolph and Rose Levis Jewish
Community Center, accepted the
bicycles on behalf of the South
County Jewish Federation.
Gellert said: "These bicycles will
go a long way to making two
families have a more enjoyable
Hanukah. "Many people don't
realize that there are a number of
families in South County who can-
not afford to have a real
Hanukah."
The Wheelers of Kingspoint, a
club of Senior Riders from Kings-
point and neighboring West
Delray, started with just a few
members 12 years ago. Today,
over 200 people are involved with
the Wheelers.
Bernie Volk is President of a
group of very dedicated bicycle
riders. The Wheelers hold weekly
rides at Morikami Park as well as
having special events throughout
the year.
Bertha Mencher is chairperson
of the Bicycle Giveaway. Mrs.
Mencher said: "For the Hanukah
Season we give two bicycles as
gifts for deserving children. It is
our way of adding something to
the South County Community."
In addition to their donation to
the Federation, the Wheelers
throughout the year donate to
various local and civic causes.

Kidnapped
Beirut Jew
Killed
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
body of Haim Cohen Halala, 39,
one of four Beirut Jews kidnapped
by Shiite Moslem extremists last
March, was found by police in the
no-man's-land between Christian
east Beirut and the Moslem-
populated western part of the ci-
ty. The murdered man was iden-
tified by the police.
A Moslem group calling itself
the "Organization of the Oppress-
ed of the Earth" also identified
him and took credit for the killing.
It issued a statement saying: "We
announce to the souls of the mar-
tyrs and to our Islamic nation the
execution of Israeli spy Haim
Cohen Halala in response to the
massive shelling of south Lebanon
in which several strugglers were
killed."
Halala was abducted by six
gunmen on March 29 from his
home in Wadi Abu Jamil, the
Jewish quarters in west Beirut.
The fate of the other three Jews
seized at the same time is not
known.

JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Arab birth rate in Israel and the

among the Arab population com-
pared to 74,500 Jewish births.

South Florida Aliya Council (and
chairwoman of the Aliya Con-

and board member of Beth David
Congregation in Miami.
Mrs. Minkes is administrator of
the Suburban Medical Center in
Miami, and has served as presi-
dent of the Florida Osteopathic
Medical Association Auxiliary,
and is a member of the Auxiliary's
national board. She has also serv-
ed as vice-chairwoman of the
South Dade Chamber of Com-
merce Health Action Committee,
and on the board of the Improvisa-
tional Arts Ensembles of New
York City. She and her husband
Jules have been recipients of the
Israel Bonds' Gates of Jerusalem
Award in 1982. Linda and Jules
Minkes have five children.
Mrs. Minkes is the second
Hadassah National Board and
Communty leder to address the
Sabra Group in as many months.
Last month the Sabra Group
played hosts at the home of presi-
dent Rena Feuerstein to Rae
Ginsburg, National vice-president
from Boston, who was on a speak-
ing tour to several Hadassah
groups in this region.
Mrs. Ginsburg gave some in-
teresting reports on Hadassah
projects and activities in Israel, in-
cluding the achievements of
Hadassah in Youth Aliyah which
is hard at work helping thousands
of immigrant children both
from the Soviet Union and from
Ethiopia make the adjustment
to life in Israel. Mrs. Ginsburg
fielded questions on Youth Aliyah,
the Soviet Jewry problem and pro-
spects, and even the possible in-
fluence of the oil glut on the Mid-
dle East situation. She reported,
also, that as chairwoman of the
Community Relations Council in
the Boston area, she is in the pro-
cess of organizing a study mission
for non-Jewish leaders to Israel,
subsidized by the Federation
there. And among other things,
Mrs. Ginsburg made a strong
point of the fact that the national
policy of Hadassah calls for mak-
ing certain all the organization's
catered affairs are kosher, so as
not to ever exclude anyone from
being able to attend ...
The interesting thing to
emerge from Rae
Ginsburg's talk, was that it
was virtually impossible to
keep separate her activity in
Hadassah in which as Na-
tional vice-president she has
taken on great responsibili-
ty from her other com-

munity involvement: Mrs.
Ginsburg is a vice-president
of the Federation in Boston,
and chairs one of its major
departments the CRC.
And she has held other of-
fices in the Federation, and
has been active in Israel

These ladies, of course, are by
no means exceptions. Among the
leadership of Hadassah, as well as
other community organizations,
there are many examples of
devoted individuals who give of
their time and talent (yes, and
money) to Jewish and non-Jewish
causes and projects. The same ap-
plies to virtually all Federation
leaders, here and elsewhere. The
Sabra Group's Luncheon is
devoted to one major project:
Youth Aliyah. The message of
Mrs. Minkes, Mrs. Ginsburg and
others is broader it's a personal
example of community involve-
ment and a confirmation that

Fifth Group-Bat Mitzvah
At Temple Beth Shalom
Once more the Standing Room
Only signs were up at Temple
Beth Shalom in Boca Raton as a
group of nine women members of
the congregation read the Haf-
torah of the week on Shabbat Eve
(Friday evening) service last Fri-
day night.
These women Beatrice Bor-
ruso, Ida Bloom, Betty Breitstein,
Rose Juvall, Estelle Polen, Matty
Kaufman, Libby Schlosser, Sylvia
Weiner, and Lucille Weisfuse -
all residents of Century Village
and members of the Temple, have
undergone a rigorous, full-year
training program under the
tutelage of Blanche Fialkow and
flack Rosenthal.
Most of the Bat Mitzvah can-
didates came to their training
with only a modicum of knowledge
of the Friday evening Hebrew
prayer service. Their remarkable
progress in reading of the devo-
tional literature and Psalms as
well as the recitation with proper
cantillation of the assigned Haf-
torah is a tribute to the patience,
persistence and dedicated drive of
their teachers, Blanche Fialkow
and Jack Rosenthal and even
more so to the unremitting ar-
duous efforts and indomitable
spirit of the students themselves.
The Bat Mitzvah celebration of
the evening was a rite of passage
these women shared with 30 other
women who have preceded them
3n four separate occasions since
the first Bat Mitzvah celebrated
on June 6, 1984, as part of a pro-
gram of Adult Jewish Continuing
Education initiated by President
Reuben Saltzman and Dr. John M.

Press Digest
By MARTY ERANN
One of the questions
most often asked by people
who come to hear speakers
on terrorism is: "How can
we fight it? what can be
done?"
As one speaker on ter-
rorism recently put it, there
is no one clear answer or
solution; the problem must
be dealt with in many ways,
on many levels. However,
one thing is certain, and
that is also the key to
Israel's policy in combatting
terror which to date ap-
pears to have been most ef-
fective of any, considering
Israel is the primary target:
Under no circumstances
must one let the terrorists
feel that they are being effec-
tive, that their actions are
achieving the goals they
want to achieve.
One of the primary goals
of the terrorists in directing
their actions against inno-
cent civilians in European
airports is the sowing of
fear, and the disruption of
travel especially to and
from Israel by Americans
and Europeans.
The most appropriate
answer the american peo-
ple, and the Jews of
America especially, can give
is NOT to react by saying
"we are afraid to travel to
Israel!" The best answer,
and far the safer one, is for
twice as many people no,
for TEN TIMES as many
people, to travel to Israel.
And if any reader thinks
for a moment that this
would mean risking their
lives, rest assured (or ask
most experts on terrorism)
that the opposite is true
unless you think you will
never travel again. For that
is exactly what terrorism
would achieve if people
react with the fear the ter-
rorists want them to
have .________________
Are things changing in Israel?
Last month the mayor of
Kalkiliya, an Arab town east of
Kfar Saba, offered a $3,000
reward for information leading to
the capture of a terrorist who shot
an Israeli in the town. He made
the offer while visiting the
shooting victim at the hospital.
It was reported that when the
shooting took place, several
residents of the town who
witnessed it chased the
perpetrator and tried to catch
him, and though they were not
successful, they later described to
security forces in which direction
he fled.
Kalkiliya was, at one time, one
of the most anti-Israel towns in
the Administered Territories.
Soldiers serving in military camps
further inland, near Nablus
(Sh'chem) were under standing
orders never to travel to tel Aviv
by the direct western route which
would take them through Kalkilya
they had to go north through
Tulkarm or south through
Jerusalem, even when traveling to
Tel Aviv ... So. perhaps things
are changing
By now. just about eivryone > the
free world has nothing hut disilo i n
though often mixed with deep
disappointment for the once
august body known as the United
Nations. It is probably safe to
assume, therefore, that the lack of
publicity for the anti-Israel resolu-
tions in the General Assembly a
couple of weeks ago were simply
not deemed newsworthy .
The General Assembly, by a vote
of 86 to 23, condemned Israel for
committing "war crimes" against
the Palestinian People and urged
UN members to cease to deal with
Israel and to isolate it completely,
including in the economic areas.
(There were 37 abstentions.)
Other resolutions condemned
Israel for annexing Jerusalem and
the Golan Heights, for mass ar-
rests and collective punishment,
including torture and ill treat-
ment ofresidents of occupied ter-
ritories and of "pillaging" or-
cheological and cultural property
of the Arabs.
As many spokesmen both Israeli
and others, have put it in the past:
the Arabs and their Third World
allies can mobilize a majority for
a resolution calling day "night"
or vice-versa.
However, perhaps the
ludicrousness of these UN pro-
cedures ought to get more publicity
- I hey shoud be constantly placed
>nth the most ndiculous of all UN
,orf jokes, the infamous resolution
.1379 equating Zionism with
racism .
One recent event which
did merit a great deal more
public exposure than it
received (doesn't anyone
want to carrY GOOD news
anymore?) was the renewal
of diplomatic ties between
Israel and Ivory Coast. In
the wake of this move, it is
expected several other
countries in Africa, which
severed relations with Israel
under Arab pressure in the
past, will resume full
relations. __________
An item which apparently
merited no more than a few lines
on an inside page in some of the
daily press, was the tragic murder
by Lebanese fanatics of one of
seven Jewish hostages, kidnapped
over the past two years. It was the
killing of 39-year-old Haim Halala,
one of the 100 or so Jews left liv-
ing in Beirut, who was held since
last March by a Shiite group and
murdered as "revenge for Israel's
attacks." Then, a week later, as
we go to press, we hear that
another of the seven "hostages"
was murdered by the same group,
this time in revenge for an attack
by the Southern Lebanese Chris-
tians, who are backed by Israel, on
a Shiite village in Lebanon.
This time the "secular" press
(which simply means, in this case,
the wire services which are the
source of news), devoted a little
more space to the item. One
wonders when will people, in-
cluding those in our profession,
realize that terror does not
discriminate as to its victims, and
that the abduction and holding of
Jewish Lebanese citizens is just as
loathsome as that of any other in-
nocent people?
Spain plans
full relations
with Israel
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Spanish government has denied a
report published last week that
Spain has decided to postpone the
establishment of formal
diplomatic relations with Israel,
the World Jewish Congress
disclosed last week.
Ambassador Manuel Sassot, the
Spanish consul general in New
York, assured WJC Executive
Director Israel Singer that there
will be no delay in the establish-
ment of formal ties.
Reports had stated that Jorge
Dezcaller, Spain's director-
general of foreign policy for the
Middle East, told officials in the
United Arab Emirates that Spain
would postpone the announce-
ment of full ties with Israel until
at least October 1986.
