Peres Urges World
Move On Terrorism
Israeli Premier Shimon
Peres this week, urged
countries to join together in
taking non-military action
Israeli Envoy 'Confident' in Egypt's
Justice Following Ras Burka Case
Israel's Ambassador to Egypt
Moshe Sasson has voiced his "con-
fidence in Egyptian justice"
following the handing down of a
life imprisonment sentence on the
Ras Burka killer, Suleiman
Sasson, in media interviews,
noted, too, with gratification that
in recent days the major Egyptian
media had conveyed to the public
in Egypt the full facts of the kill-
ing on Oct. 5 of seven Israeli holi-
day vacationers by Khafer, by a
soldier stationed near Ras Burka
on the Sinai coast.
Sasson's comments were ex-
coriated, however, by a bereaved
parent Reuven Baum, whose
10-year-old son, Amir, bled to
death after being hit by a bullet
from Khater's gun. Baum has ac-
cused the Ambassador of "derelic-
tion of duty" because of Sasson's
public acceptance of the Egyptian
court's sentence as a satisfactory
expression of justice.
Baum said that since Egyptian
law provided for a heavier
sentence the life imprisonment
punishment could not be said as
Sasson had said to have fully ex-
pressed justice. Baum's
dissatisfaction over the sentence
was echoed by other bereaved
parents, too.
The demand that other Egyp-
tian personnel now be examined
regarding their behavior was voic-
ed by Doveish Knesset member
Yossi Sand, in a cable to the
Egyptian government. Sand, of
the Citizens Rights Movement,
called for a commission of inquiry
to study the denial of prompt
medical aid to the victims.
against countries that har-
bor terrorists.
"I would strongly recommend
that collective measures be taken
against host countries." Peres
said on ABC-TV's "This Week
with David Brinkley." "I am
referring first and mainly to
economic, political and other sanc-
tions against this sort of country."
But Peres stressed that there
can be no "immunity" for ter-
rorists or their bases. He noted
that when Israel bombed the
Palestine Liberation Organization
headquarters in Tunisia, it was
not attacking Tunisia, which he
called a "moderate" country, but
was striking at an "extra-
territorial base."
PERES' CALL for political and
economic sanctions seemed to be
in line with the Reagan Ad-
ministration's efforts to get the
West European countries to join
in imposing economic sanctions on
Libya in the wake of the terrorist
attacks on the El Al counters at
the Rome and Vienna airports
Dec. 27.
Robert McFarlane, who recent-
ly left the post as President
Reagan's National Security Ad-
visor, appearing on the same ABC
program, said the U.S. has been
urging such action from the Euro-
Likud's Shamir on Border Dispute
Premier Shimon Peres is
making a determined effort
to persuade his Likud part-
ner, Foreign Minister Yit-
zhak Shamir, to accept a
formula to resolve Israel's
border dispute with Egypt
over Taba. The two men
were scheduled to meet
privately this week to
discuss the matter.
The Primer Minister's Office
asserted earlier that all outstan-
ding obstacles to a settlement
have been overcome in recent
talks between Israeli and Egyp-
tian negotiating teams. Peres
himself told reporters that the
issue of Taba is approaching the
moment when Israel must make
decisions. "I am not holding a
stopwatch in my hand," he added.
ISRAEL RADIO reported that
Peres gave Shamir the file con-
taining all of Jerusalem's ex-
changes with Cairo on Taba to
date. He hopes the Likud leader,
after studying the record, will
conclude that his concerns have
been addressed and that he can
therefore support the proposed
formula for a settlement
But political observers have
predicted that Shamir, facing a
serious leadership challenge from
the far rightwing of his own Herut
Party, may choose to stand tough
President Mubarak
on his insistence that the Taba
dispute be settled by conciliation,
not the binding arbitration
demanded by Egypt.
Peres, supported by the Labor
Party leadership, has long been
flexible on the matter and believes
the latest formula satisfies the in-
terests of both sides. Peres,
moreover, sees Taba itself as
unimportant. The tiny sliver of
beach on the Red Sea near Eilat
has no strategic or economic value
worth a prolonged dispute. On the
other hand, resolution of the
dispute, Peres believes, will bring
about a swift thaw in the "cold
peace" that has soured Israeli-
Egyptian relations since the
Lebanon war.
According to Israel Radio,
President Hosni Mubarak has pro-
posed a summit meeting with
Peres at the end of this month,
assuming Taba and other bilateral
issues have been resolved by then.
Sources close to Peres say an ac-
cord over Taba is the key to a
broader understanding between
the two countries what Egypt
calls the "basket" approach.
THE BASKET presumably
would contain the return of the
Egyuptian Ambassador who was
recalled from Tel Aviv in
September, 1982, at the height of
the Lebanon war, a rivival of
trade and tourism, and an overall
general improvement in relations.
One move, scheduled to begin
this month, is the search, in Egyp-
tian waters, for the Israeli sub-
marine Dakar, which was
reported missing on Jan. 25,1968,
with her 69-member crew while on
her delivery voyage from Britain
to Israel.
In a letter to Peres this week,
Mubarak made a point of praising
the Israeli leader's efforts for
peace, especially his speech to the
United Nations General Assembly
in November. Mubarak asserted
peans since 1981. He said collec-
tive action should be taken before
more violent means are tried. He
suggested that Europeans could
start by bringing their people out
of Libya and then beginning to cut
trade with the Libyans.
Peres said that "Europe is lear-
ning the hard way that something
must be done and undoubtedly
that Libya is the most evil country
in many respects and surely when
it comes to terrorism."
MEANWHILE, Peres denied
that the U.S. has pressured Israel
either to retaliate or not to
retaliate against those responsible
for the airport atrocities. He said
the U.S. has taken a "responsible
and strong position."
The Israeli Premier said this has
resulted in Libyan leader Muam-
mar Khadafy backing down from
his original position of strongly
supporting the terrorist attacks.
He said Khadafy, who is "heroic
in his speeches and irresponsible
in his killings," is now frightened
of what may happen. "But let him
be scared instead of other people
being frightened," Peres said.
This assessment seemed to be
brought out by Khadafy himself
who backed off from a scheduled
appearance Sunday on NBC-TV's
"Meet the Press." Instead,
Muammar Khadafy
reporters from the U.S. television
networks were taken to a Libyan
farm where Khadafy held a news
conference from the seat of a

legal for him to carry out attacks
such as at the Rome and Vienna
airports, "it may be so" for the
Palestinians who, he said, were
acting the same way as American
colonialists did against the

Hussein's Posture May Prompt
Senate Rejection of Arms to Jordan
Sen. Richard Lugar(R.,
Ind.), chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, predicted that
because of what he called
the "faltering" Middle East
peace process, resolutions
may be introduced "early
on in the Senate to reject
the Reagan Administra-
tion's proposed $1.9 billion
arms sales to Jordan.
Lugar, at a press conference
discussing foreign relations issues
for the new year, said last Friday,
the Foreign Relations Committee
would hold a hearing on the
Mideast peace process sometime
in the first few weeks after Con-
gress returns from its winter
HE NOTED that Congress has
until March 1 to act on the Jordai-
nian arms sale. This is the date to
which a resolution by both Houses
had postponed the sale, which the
Administration had proposed Oct.
21, unless "direct and meaningful
peace negotiations between Israel
and Jordan are underway."
Lugar said he expected the Ad-
ministration would propose an
arms sale to Saudi Arabia this
year, hut said he would not
speculate on his reaction until he
saw the proposal.
The Indiana Senator appeared
to place a great deal of respon-
sibility for the lack of progress in
the peace process on Syria, which
he said was among those in the
Mideast "who have not wanted
that initiative to succeed." He ad-
ded, "The current negotiations
(by Syria) with King Hussein have
not been helpful."
LUGAR SAID the terrorist at-
tacks at the Vienna and Rome air-
ports Dec. 27 may have been aim-
ed at wrecking the peace process.
He said that if the U.S. used force
to retaliate, this would result in a
"very serious setback" for the
peace process, but noted it was
already a "faltering process."
However, Lugar supported the
use of force if it's necessary but
urged the need for international
cooperation against terrorism. He
said there is a "change of mind in
this country and it is becoming ap-
parent in Europe" to support
government action against ter-
rorism "that may involve the loss
01 life."
But he said there is not yet the
realization that state-sponsored
terrorism involves "nation-states,
and nation-states must be held

Estate Planning.)
What is estate planning?
Estate planning is the process
by which people plan the ac-
cumulation, management, conser-
vation and disposition of their
estate. It concerns itself not only
with bank accounts, real estate,
stocks, bonds and other assets
passed on to beneficiaries, but
with tax-savings opportunities as
It's never too late to begin
estate planning. Despite the
substantial wealth many South
Florida retirees have accumulated
in their lifetimes, only about 1 per-
cent of the 400 new clients

year has a will that is up-to-date,
takes full advantage of changes in
laws, deliberately seeks to avoid
probate and accomplishes their
goals and objectives. In fact. 8 out

Palestinian terrorist leader believ-
ed responsible for the Vienna and
Rome atrocities. Abu Nidal does
not live in Libya nor has bases
there. He said he did not know
where Abu Nidal was.
However. Peres, saying lying
was easy for Khadafy. declared
that Abu Nidal is "right now in
Libya" and has his base in Libya.
He rejected a report in the Lon-
don Sunday Times which claimed
that Israeli sources said Abu Nidal
was dying of liver cancer and tKe
terrorist attacks were actually
carried out by Libyan and Syrian
But Peres seemed more
cautious in implicating Syria in
the terrorist attacks. "Syria is
more careful," he noted. But he
warned that If "Syria will not
cooperate more clearly to prevent
terrorism in the world" then it
too, should be considered as a host
country for terrorism.
Peres was also cautiously op-
timistic about Syria's withdrawal
of the SAM-6 and SAM-8 anti
aircraft missiles from the
Lebanese border, although he
noted that the SAM-2 missiles
were still there. He said he believ-
ed there is a need to "de-escalate
in our rhetoric" in order to
"return to a status quo ante so as
to keep a very complicated co-
existence" in that area.

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
them to The Floridian.
B'nai Torah Congregation
"Baruch Dayan Ha-emet..."
Of all of the blessings in our
liturgy, this one is the most dif-
ficult to recite. According to our
tradition, it is to be recited when
we hear news of a death or other
troubling information.
Specifically, in today's context,
we recite these words at a Jewish
funeral prior to the rending of the
garments or the cutting of the
mourning ribbon.
This b'racha proclaims that we
are praising G-d for the
righteousness of His judgement.
When G-d created this world He
judged that death be a part of life
and that all creatures share this
ending to their earthly existence.
I believe very strongly that our
sages made a very wise decision in
choosing these words. If our
liturgy in such sad and tragk
moments were to speak to us of a
completely loving and compas-
sionate G-d it would be so much
more difficult to reconcile our loss
with G-d's love. As the words pre-
sent themselves, we may say that
Rabbi Theodore Feldman
G-d is unfair in His judgment, but
we cannot say He is unloving.
Much like the parent who says
to a child, "I don't want you to do
such and such and the reason is
because I love you." The child
might respond: "If he loved me,
he would let me do it." The whole
basis of love is called into
If a parent says, "I don't want
you to do such and such because I
think it is best for you." This is an
act of judgment with which one
may disagree and not feel
Thus it is, I believe, that in our
moments of sadness, when it is
hard to reconcile love, we speak of
G-d's judgement. Indeed, when
He created us He deemed death to
be the lot of us all.
As we struggle with that which
life offers, may G-d grant us the
strength to affirm the blessings of
life and be at peace with its
l-in-5 American Jews
Have Never Been Married
American Jewish Commit-
tee has reported that ap-
proximately one-fifth of
adult American Jews have
never married, and that
there are 200,000 to 300,000
Jewish singles in the New
York metropolitan area
These statistics do not bode
well for the vitality of the Jewish
community, AJC observes,
because prolonged bachelorhood
postpones and may reduce
childbearing, and singles are
much less active in Jewish affairs
than are married couples.
AMONG THE other conclu-
sions contained in "Single and
Jewish: Conversations with Unaf-
filiated Jewish Singles," a booklet
prepared by Dr. Jan Yager, a well-
known sociologist and author of
"Single in America," and many
magazine articles, and published
by the Committee's William
Petschek National Jewish Family
Center, are the following:
When singles join an organiza-
tion, it is generally for career ad-
vancement and self-improvement.
Apart from work or school,
their lives center on friends and
Most hope to marry Jewish
partners and raise Jewish
children, expecting to return to
the Jewish community at that
"All felt positively about their
Jewishness," said Dr. Yager.
"For many, this takes the form of
ethnic or cultural identification
unrelated to community affiliation
or religious observance."
Yet, she adds, "Many had a
significant measure of Jewish
education, still celebrated at least
the High Holy Days, and were
concerned about the State of
MOST OF those questioned by
Dr. Yager tended, to explain their
lack of affiliation less as a result ot
their own alienation than in terms
of the ostracism by the community
they perceived they had ex-
perienced. They found fault with
Jewish institutions but they also
believed that the institutions were
critical of them.
Commenting on this reaction,
Dr. Yager states:
"Singles have long complained
of feeling alienated from the
synagogue and other Jewish com-
munal institutions, whose ac-
tivities are typically family-
centered. While many Jewish
singles do affiliate with
synagogues and actively par-
ticipate in Jewish communal life,
the large number of unaffiliated
Jewish singles suggests that the
established institutions are not
meeting the needs of a significant
segment of the Jewish
THESE unaffiliated singles are
lost to the Jewish community, she
adds, at least temporarily, and
"no one is sure why."
Thirty unaffiliated Jewish
singles in the New York
metropolitan area 15 men and
15 women between the ages of 24
and 43 were interviewed. They
represented a wide range of oc-
cupations, income levels and
religious backgrounds.

Jewish Family Center, is also
director of AJC's Jewish Com-
munal Affairs Department.

Israel passed its first reading in

religious parties to push the
measure through. Most Laborites

Int'l Jewish Humor 'Summit'
Planned By Tel Aviv U.
The Lord announces that the end of the world is
at hand. In three days a great flood will engulf the
earth. The great religious leaders of the world
stand before their people to offer last words of
"Repent your sins and we shall meet in the next
world," the priest tells his parishioners.
"Meditate and we shall reach Nirvana
together," says the Buddhist.
"My fellow Jews," intones the Rabbi, "there's
no time to lose! We have only three days to learn
how to live under water ..."
Such is Jewish humor: a statement of defiance in
the face of disaster, a comic twist to the tragedies
of life.
Jewish humor particularly its impact on
American humor will be the subject of the Se-
cond International Conference on Jewish Humor
sponsored by Tel Aviv University, in New York Ci-
ty, June 9 to 12. It will be held at the New School
for Social Research.
One of the prime movers of this conference is
Lester En tin, a prominent Jewish leader from
Boca Raton who is a board member of the South
County Jewish Federation. Entin serves on the Tel
Aviv University Board of Governors, and is a
member of the international advisory committee of
the Conference, along with such famous persons as
Abba Eban, Elie Wiesel, Saul Bellow and Simone
Veil. Other members of the committee include
famous humorists as Art Buchwald, Leo Rosten,
Ephraim Kishon and Alan King, who will also be
featured in the conference's program.
The conference is open to the general public, En-
tin pointed out. "I strongly recommend to anyone
from this commuity who can attend it that they do
so, as it will be a rewarding and most enjoyable
More than 500 people expected to take part in
the conference include comedians, academics,
humorists and writers, who will make their con-
tributions in some 80 papers to be presented in the
four-day conference, according to Prof. Avner Ziv.
Prof. Ziv, who chaired the first international con-
ference at Tel Aviv U. in 1984, will also chair this
one. Ziv heads the department of educational
sciences at TAU's School of Education.
The conference theme is: "It Is As Important To
Look Sometimes Seriously At Humor, Aa It Is To
Look Humorously At Serious Things." It will
regale the participants with offerings from the
world-renowned humorists taking part, as well as
deal with such topics as self-disparagement in
Jewish Humor; Jewish Comedians on the
American Scene; Jewish Humor in TV and Films,
and the question of whether or not. Jewish Humor
is sexist. ..
In conduction with the conference, an exhibition
Prof. Avner Ziv
Lester Entin
of original Israeli cartoons "humor in Israel"
will be on display.
The registration fee for the conference is $150
per person; $75 for an accompanying person. This
covers admission to all sessions, the cartoon ex-
hibition and receptions, and to a book summarizing
the 80 papers to be presented. Anyone interested
in reservations or more information should contact

Rosh Hodesh ... New Moon Day

From time to time I attend ser-
vices at different synagogues on
the Sabbath on which Rosh Hodesh
(new month) is being blessed.
Rosh Hodesh is blessed on the
Sabbath preceding the beginning of
the new month of the Hebrew calen-
dar, immediately following the
reading of the weekly portion of the
Torah, before the Musaf service.
I go to various synagogues in
order to learn from as large a
cross-section as possible of
synagogue attenders what their
understanding is of the sanctifxca-
tion of the New Moon. I have found
that while many understand the
reasons for blessing the new
month, very few are familiar with
the terms "molad" and
"halakim" (plural for
"heUk")used in the ritual of the
blessing. This, of course, includes
those who understand the Hebrew
of the prayer book and can
translate the text used in the bless-
ing of the new moon. Few are
aware that the procedure used at
present for blessing the new month
is a traditional carryover from
ancient times, and is in com-
pliance with the Mosaic-Sinaic
In the time of the Synhedrium
(Sandhedrin in Aramaic the
'great court' of 70 rabbinic judges
which served as the highest ec-
clesiastic authority), the New
Moon day was proclaimed only
after two witnesses testified to
the high court that they had, in-
deed, seen the initial crescent of
the new moon. (This was visual
observation, required by the
153rd Commandment.) It was
obligatory for those who saw the
new crescent at the proper time to
go to the court in Jerusalem and
testify to seeing the new moon.
So important was this act
(remember, there were no calen-
dars and no clocks), that the
journey of the witnesses to the
court took precedence over the
laws for this purpose was per-
missible in all months while the
Sanctuary (the Tabernacle and
then the Holy Temple) stood,
because of the Musaf offering (ad-
ditional offering) which was made
every New Moon day, and which
took precedence over the Sab-
bath. When the Sanctuary no
longer stood, violation of the Sab-
bath Law was still permitted, only
* in the case of the new months of
Tishrei and Nissan, in order to
make certain of celebration of the
Holy Days and Festivals "in their
proper season," as the Torah
phrases it.
Now that the Synhedrium is no
longer in existence, it is obligatory
on all Jewish communities to
adhere to the custom of our
ancestors with regard to the new
month's sanctification, based on
Mosaic law, which, without the
Synhedrium, tells us to ascertain
by calculation and establish by
proclamation the day on which the
new month begins.
The proclamation is made dur-
ing the blessing ritual today as a
congregation blesses the new
month, with the paragraphs
repeated by the cantor. The pro-
clamation is usually made by the
person holding the Torah scroll (or
the Rabbi), who announces the
time of the MOLAD in terms of
the day, the hour and the number
of HALAKIM, and the day of the
beginning of the new month. The
beginning of the new month may
be one or two days, depending on
the month and the year.
(Ed. Note: Mr. Pfeffer refers to
the congregations which follow the
Orthodox tradition, primarily. In
Conservative synagogues, while
the new month is blessed and pro-
claimed, reference is usually NOT
made to the MOLAD. IN Reform
congregations the practice varies
the prayer book includes the
ritual of blessing of the new month,
which is done at the Friday even-
ing services in those congregations
that choose to follow the practice.
"MOLAD" means "birth." The
MOLAD is defined in terms of
moon conjunction. It is the precise
time when the centers of the sun
and the moon have the same
longitude (are on the same "line"
in the east-west movement).
Hence, elongation (east-west
distance between the sun and the
moon) is zero at time of conjunc-
tion. At this time, a new moon is
born. It is the time of the TRUE
The time of the MOLAD (always
in Jerusalem time) announced in
the synagogue may deviate from
the true Molad by as much as 15
hours, plus or minus. For exam-
ple, for the year 5739 (1979-80)
Molad Tishrei was on Monday,
Oct. 2, 34 minutes and 2
HALAKIM after 5 a.m. (a
HELEK is three and one third
seconds). But the true conjunction
or true Molad (in Jerusalem time)
was on Monday, Oct. 2, one

a clock time difference of three
hours, 27 minutes and 45.33
seconds. This corresponds to an
angular separation between the
sun and moon of one degree, 45
minuts and 27 seconds of
For the month of Tevet, 5739,
the time difference between the
two moladot was two hours, 10
minutes and 35 seconds clock
time, which corresponded to an
angular separation of one degree,
six minutes and 20 seconds of
longitude. ("Clock time" is em-
phasized to distinguish from
angular measurement, which is
also measured by minutes and
seconds as part of degrees, rather
than hours.) In each of the above
instances, the centers of the sun
and the moon no longer had the
same longitude and did not satisfy
the definition of true moon birth
or true conjunction. In each of
these months, the time of Molad
documented in the calendar was
earlier than the true Molad.

Hahodesh V, 1-3). It is the
calculated moment that the moon
would be at the same longitude
with the sun if both bodies were
moving at a uniform rate in their
respective orbits. Because in reali-
ty their rate of motion is not
uniform, the time interval bet-
ween consecutive conjunctions is
not constant. The time interval
between lunations varies within
several hours of the mean lunar
month which is 29 days, 12
hours, 44 minutes and 3.33
Rabbi Gamliel of the Talmud is
credited with having given the
correct duration of a mean lunar
month (tractate Rosh Hashana.
25a). Rabbi Gamliel said: "I have
it on the authority of my father's
father that a synodic (lunar)
month cannot be less than 29 days
and half a day, two thirds of an
hour and 73 Halakim (29 days, 12
hours, 44 minutes, 3.33 seconds)."
Why the importance attached to
the time of occurrence of the
Molad? What is the significance of
time within one helek or 3.33
Molad Tishrei fixes the date of
the Holy days. In the example
cited earlier for 5739. had the
Molad been on Monday at noon or
later. Rosh Hashana that year
would have been postponed to the
following day, and all other
Jewish holidays postponed accor-
dingly. If Tishrei's Molad occurs
on Tuesday at noon or later, (or
for that matter on Thursday or
Saturday at noon or later), then
Rosh Hashana must be postponed
by two days. (Rosh Hashana can-
not occur on Sunday, Wednesday
or Friday, now that the calendar
is based on the calculation
method; though in ancient times it
could fall on any day.) On the
other hand, if the Molad is one
helek (three and a third seconds)
before noon Rosh Hashana is
not postponed. Thus, one helek
makes a big difference.
The above demonstrates the im-
portance of accurate lunar and
solar calculations. It is amazing to
find that the numerical results
given by the Rambam
(Maimonides) in the 12th Century
were accurate and in close agree-
ment with the results obtained by
use of modern astronomical obser-
vation coupled with mathematical
formulas used in modern
astronomy. The Rambam's
calculations for the sun's mean
rate of motion show it to move 0
degrees, 59 minutes 8.33 seconds
per day (Kiddush Hahodesh XII,
completed in 1178 CE). The
Nautical Almanac, used for
astronomical calculations, gives
the mean rate of motion of the sun
as 0 degrees, 59 minutes, 8.34
seconds per day. A difference of
only One-hundredth of a second
per day! Rambam's calculations
were also in close agreement with
those of Copernicus, the father of
modern astronomy, who lived 365
years later than the Rambam.
Copernicus figures the sun's mean
rate of motion to be 0 degrees, 59
minutes, 8.327 seconds per day
a difference of only .003 seconds.
The time interval of the tropical
year when the Rambam lived was
365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and
49.39 seconds. This is only-one
fifth of a second less that the time
cited by the Rambam.
Remarkably, 365 years later
Copernicus calculated the tropical
year to be 365 days, 5 hours, 49
minutes and 12 seconds this
was 20 seconds higher than its
true value, compared with only
1/5 seconds by which the Ram-
bam's calculation was off. Again,
Joseph Pfeffer is a
scientist who, for many years,
worked for the U.S. Government
as an intelligence and defense
analyst, and has done work at the
Technion in Israel as well.

Please Noter
The Molad for Adar I this
year, as listed in many
Hebrew calendars, is in er-
ror, probably due to a
typographical error.
The Molad for Adar I, to
be announced during the
blessing of the New Month
on Saturday, Feb. 8, is
shown on many calendars as
Sunday, 43 minutes, 3
halakim after noon. The cor-
rect reading should be Sun-
day, 2S minutes, 3 halakim
after noon, a difference of
20 minutes (or 360 halakim).
The practice is to an-
nounce the Molad accurate
to within one Helek the
error was probably picked
up by various calendar
publishers from the same
source. Information about
this error should be shared
and forwarded to any
synagogues where the
Molad is announced, so it
would be announced
Readers Write
EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The article you featured in your
Jan. 3 edition about battered
women in Israel highlighted a
serious problem which many
Israelis prefer to hide from their
brethren in the Diaspora.
Government sponsorship of the
shelters to help these women has
never been a priority and the
shelters rely mostly on donations.
People who care about Israel's
next generation of adults should
realize that by helping the bat-
tered women overcome their pro-
blems they will help these women
raise their children to be solid
citizens rather than a continuous
drain on Israel's economy.
I have visited the shelter in
Herzliya numerous times. No
American Jew would want to see
his daughter have to resort to liv-
ing in such conditions. No one in
need is turned away. One time I
counted 30 persons in the shelter.
There is one toilet and one
bathtub. Each piece of fruit is
counted and doled out so as not to
waste and overspend the precious
budget. Some of the residents, in-
cluding children, witnessed the
murder of Carmela Nakash and
forever will bear that trauma.
Anyone wishing to help the
shelter in Herzliya can make a
tax-deductible donation through
the "PEF Israel Endowment
Fund" at 511 Fifth Avenue, New
York, N.Y. 10017. Be sure to
designate in the accompanying let-
ter a request that the donation be
put toward the Carmela Nakash
Shelter For Women in Herzliya.
Thank you again for sharing this
serious problem with the Jewish
community in South County.

U.S. Leaders Seek Global
Action for Kidnapped Jews
Leaders of three national
Jewish organizations have
called for swift, concerted
action by the world com-
munity to combat global ter-
rorism and specifically to
try to save the lives of
Beirut Jews kidnapped by a
Moslem extremist group
last March 29 and now being
systematically murdered by
their abductors.
The latest call for international
cooperation against terrorists by
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, the American Jewish
Committee and the American
Jewish Congress was prompted
by the discovery on Jan. 1 of the
body of Isaac Tarrah, 53, one of
four Jews seized by a group call-
ing itself "The Organization of the
Oppressed of the World." He was
the second murder victim. The
first, Haim Cohen Halala, was
found dead in Beirut on Dec. 25.
IN EACH CASE, the discovery
of the bodies was followed by an
announcement by the killers that
they were "executed" in revenge
for the killing of Shiite Moslems in
south Lebanon by the Israel-
backed South Lebanon Army
(SLA). 9
Abraham Foxman, associate na-
tional director of the ADL and
head of its International Affairs
Division, sent a telegram to
United Nations Secretary General
Javier Perez de Cueliar hist week.
urging immediate international
action to save the kidnapped Jews
still alive.
"The murder of a second
Lebanese Jew in Lebanon within a
week heightens the urgency for
internatlpial action." Foxman's
message said. "We urge you to
call on member nations, par-
ticularly Syria and Iran, to use
their influence with the Shiites in
Lebanon. We further urge that
you use your influence with
Islamic and other religious leaders
to bring about the release of those
Jews still being held. In light of
this week's tragic events, it is
clear that time is of the essence."
DAVID GORDIS, executive
vice president of the American
Jewish Committee, expressed "its
profound sorrow and outrage at
the news of the cruel and brutal
execution" of Terrah, a retired
professor of mathematics. He
pointed out that neither Tarrah
nor Halala, a 39-year-old Beirut
businessman, were "involved in
any way in domestic Lebanese
politics or in the Arab-Israel
"Despite this latest outrage, the
American Jewish Committee will
not be deterred from its ongoing
efforts to secure the release of the
remaining Lebanese Jewish
hostages," Gordis said. "We once
again implore the nations of the
world to make a concerted effort
to combat international terrorism,
as they have unanimously pledged
to do in the United Nations,.",

Another Day
Another Massacre
Special to The Sooth County
One of these days the world is
going to have enough of
11-year-old girls slaughtered in
airports, of 69-year-old stroke vic-
tims in wheelchairs shot full of
holes and tossed overboard, and of
all the other glorious victories of
Palestinian heroes.
One of these days the world is
going to have enough of the
solemn idiocies mouthed at the
United Nations in defense of such
crimes, and of the excuses for not
taking stronger action murmured
within European chancelleries
and the American State
One of these days the world will
cease to tolerate the oh-so-
reasonable ways of disguising
bloody madness as some kind of
holy cause, and murder as a
regrettable but understandable
meaning tolerable incident. ,
One of these days the United
States may issue a warrant not
just for the arrest of an underling
like Mohammed Abu Abbas, the
hero of the Achille Lauro affair,
but for his boss Yasser Arafat.
One of these days that well-known
visage may be featured not at
papal audiences and other interna-
tional receptions but on wanted
Specifically, Yasser Arafat
should be arrested in connection
with the murder of Ambassador
Cleo Noel, Charge d Affaires G.
Curtis Moore, and Guy Eid, a
Belgian envoy, at Khartoum in
1973, by Black September, one of
the numerous subsections of the
Palestine Liquidation Organiza-
tion. The PLO's terrorist-in-chief
should have been nabbed in con-
nection with these murders the
moment he stepped on the tarmac
to attend a meeting of the United
Nations shortly thereafter. In-
stead, he was lionized at the UN,
that theater of the absurd where
the terrorists are honored and the
victims assailed.
One of these days the evidence
implicating the Palestine Liquida-
tion Organization and specifically
its chairman in those murders
may come out in a court of law.
The State Department cables in-
dicating that the seizure of the
Embassy at Khartoum was plann-
ed and carried out at Yasser
Arafat's direction, a transcript of
the telephone conversations bet-
ween the killers and their leader
... all the evidence indicates that
Yasser Arafat himself gave the
order to kill those three hostages
at Khartoum. He certainly
deserves his day in court. So does
the world.
One of these days the world will
mobilize the legal machinery
already in place to defend in-
nocents like Natasha Simpson, 11,
and Leon Klinghoffer, 69, and all
the others slain over the years.
Leon Klinghoffer's widow now
has filed a civil suit against the
PLO, a welcome move in the
absence of any action where there
should have been a lot in this
country's criminal courts.
Perhaps most useful of all, a
criminal warrant against its
leader would strip away the
facade of respectability that the
Palestine Liquidation Organiza-
tion hides behind. Why chase after
the small fry but let the big fish
One of these days European na-
tions may no longer recognize the
PLO as some kind of legitimate
political organization and grant it
diplomatic privileges even to
the point of allowing someone like
Mohammed Abu Abbas safe
passage in the aftermath of the
act of piracy he seems to have
masterminded. Instead, countries
like Italy will see the PLO for
what it is and break relations. The
PLO and its apologists claim that
its crimes are the doing of lone

crazies with no tie to distinguisn-
ed statesmen like Messrs. Arafat
and Abbas. But one of these days
the world may wake up.
One of these days nations that
grant terrorists refuge and even
training Libya, Syria, and Iran,
to start with will be quarantin-
ed by the civilized world and the
decent opinion of mankind: no
trade, no aid, no excuses.
These latest massacres at Rome
and Vienna are no isolated in-
cidents; they're not one of a kind
but part of an all too familiar pat-
tern that goes back decades to
raids on Israeli settlements,
buses, and, yes, schools and
nurseries; to the hijackings of
airliners and murders of Olympic
athletes. This long, bloody record
will continue until one of these
days, when the world has had
enough. And takes action. And
treats murder as murder, not as
just another "regrettable-but-
understandable" incident.
Otherwise, what happened at
Rome and Vienna will fade with
the screams of the dying, and be
followed by still other horrors.
One of these days the world will
have to make a choice between
terrorism and its own safety and
self-respect, for the list of victims
goes far beyond their immediate
families or their countries. It in-
cludes the law of nations. The
modern world seems to have
forgotten what was clear enough
to the ancient Greeks. In the
words of Euripides:
Know you are bound to help all
who are wronged.
Bound to constrain all who
destroy the law.
What else holds state to state
save this alone,
That each one honors the great
laws of right.
Surely it is not considerations of
Realpolitik or narrow definitions
of national interest that in the end
hold the world together; too often,
they have only divided and
destroyed. There must be
something else, and Euripides
defined it as well as anyone: the
great laws of right, without which
civilization, too, is slaughtered.
That's something the great na-
tions, always jockeying for posi-
tion and favor, seem to have
forgotten. Instead of sending out
orders and troops, they send cur-
sory statements of regret. and
await the next outrage, which is
sure to come given an absence of
meaningful action.
Do you think the State Depart-
ment has a standard form for such
murderous occasions, so its
spokesmen need only fill in the
blanks with the names of the
latest victims? It was a great day
when, in the wake of the Achille
Lauro, the United States dispat-
ched not a note of protest but the
United States Navy. If only that

Israel has but one television sta-
tion, and its audience is therefore
proportionally higher than any
network gets in the U.S. This is
particularly true when the pro-
gram broadcast is a popular and
effective one, like "Kolbo-Tek,"
an investigative-reporting
magazine, similar to ABC's
A recent Kolbo-Tek program
was devoted to the plight of some
Righteous Gentiles living in
Israel. The term "Righteous Gen-
tiles" a loose translation of the
Hebrew "Hassidey Umot
Ha'olam" (literally: the pious of
the world's nations) is applied to
gentiles who, during the
Holocaust period, acted to save
Jews, usually at great risk to their
own lives and property.
There are 34 such persons living
in Israel, it turns out. (It is but a
small portion of the known 4,800
Righteous Gentiles living
throughout the world.) Most of
these, elderly people, are living in
distress, in poverty, with no one
to help them. The Kolbo-Tek pro-
gram showed the living conditions
of some of these individuals, and
interviewed some of them.
The program's revelations
shocked the .public's conscience,
and reaction came swiftly. Sud-
denly lots of people private in-
dividuals and public officials
woke up. A kibbutz offered to
"adopt" one of the program's wb-
jects, 74-year-old Asin
Demitriyov. An organization of
Bulgarian Jews offered to place
him in a nursing home which they
The Knesset Interior Commit-
tee chairman, Dov Shilansky of
the Likud, made arrangements
with the Minister of Labor and
Social Welfare and with the board
chairman of the National Lottery
(Payis), to enable every Righteous
Gentile living in Israel to enter a
life-care residential facility of
their choice, with the Ministry,
the Payis, and the JDC sharing
the costs for the rest of their lives.
Shilansky also initiated legislation
which would raise the pension the
Righteous Gentiles receive, from
the minimum to a level equivalent
to the national average wage.
Yad Vashem has undertaken to
contact all 34 of the Righteous
Gentile living in Israel, to deter-
mine if they wish to enter a life-
care facility.
The treasurer of the Jewish
Agency, Akiva Levinsky, said the
Agency is prepared to work with
the government to ensure a
"respectable livelihood" for them.
The People of Israel have an
obligation to see to it that these in-
dividuals live comfortably and
respectably, not like paupers or
beggars, he said. He offered to
share equally with the govern-
ment the expenses involved, but
indicated that if the government
could not bear the burden, the
Agency would take it all upon

A wealthy Israeli, who prefer-
red to remain anonymous, called
up Yehiel Kadishai, the aide of
former Prime Minister Menahem
Begin, and offered to deposit a
monthly pension of $100 per per-
son for each of five of the in-
dividuals whose situation was
described on the Kolbo-Tek pro-
gram, directly into their bank ac-
counts. (Four of the five are two

Righteous Gentile.
Some of these gestures were re-
jected outright by some of the
Gentiles in question, who in-
dicated they want no charity
but would accept only officially
sanctioned increases in the old-
age pension paid by the state.
Other gestures were lauded, but
termed inappropriate by one of
the foremost lobbyists for recogni-
tion of the Righteous Gentiles,
Supreme Court Judge Moshe
Dr. Bayesky, who serves as
chairman of the Committee for
Recognition of the Righteous Gen-
tiles, held a press conference in
Tel Aviv, at which he called the
people of Israel "ungrateful" and
said the Kolbo-Tek program
underplayed the severity of the
During past years, Judge
Fayesky said, he had appealed to
cabinet ministers, public officials
and various institutions to help
some of the Righteous Gentiles
with various requests including
pension matters, hospitalization,
burial next to the Jewish they sav-
ed to no avail.
But Judge Bayesky emphasized
he did not want to do any fund-
raising for the $100,000 or less
per year it would cost to deal with
the problem in its entirety. This is
a national problem, and has to be
solved in a formal, official action
by the People of Israel and their
state, not by charitable acts of in-
dividuals, he said.
By coincidence, while this
uproar was taking place in Israel,
another Righteous Gentile was
visiting two Holocaust survivors,
whom she helped save, in Boca
Noah and Pearl Rodzynek, of
Brooklyn, N.Y. and Century
Village, were certainly not guilty
of forgetting or neglecting Fran-
ciszka Olesiejuk of Poland. The
Rodzyneks have visited Mrs.
Olesiejuk serveral times in
Poland, have kept in touch with
her ever since World War II, and
have occasionally sent her gift,
packages. This year they paid for
her trip to visit with them here.
The Rodzyneks, who were not
married at the time, were but two
of 12 Jews whom Franciszka
then a 17-year-old farmer's
daughter and her father hid on
their farm for 22 months, in-
geniously managing to keep secret
their existence even during Ger-
man searches of the place, as well
as from neighbors that had no love
for Jews.
The story of how Pearl and Noah
finally got to the Ivanjuks' farm in
191,2. and how they managed to
survive in a labor camp, in the
ghettos, and in the countryside un-
til then that story sounds like a
fictional saga; each of them could
provide material for a best-seller
on the subject.
When Pearl had reached the
farm, she asked Francezska to per-
mit her to stay for one day; The
girl agreed, saying she was certain
her father would approve. When
she asked him, she was surprised
to learn that he had already been
hiding five other Jews without her
knowledge The Ivanjuks dug
foxholes under their chicken coop
to hide their guests, and hid the
Jews under their dogs' kennels
when the Gestapo came with dogs
to sniff out potential hideaways.
Franciszka still lives on the
same farm, near Byale Podloska
in the Lublin District. Her family
her mother was an invalid
was stripped of everything they
had by their neighbors after the
war. These good neighbors, who
would not lift a finger to help, were
certain the Jews paid handsomely
to the Ivanjuks for hiding them,
and felt they should share in the
wealth. At church the neighbors
would not talk to them.
But despite the aggravations
Franciszka smiles, lovingly, and
says she feels she did the right
thing. (In Polish, of course
translated to Yiddish by the Rod-
zyneks.) Her happy face radiates
love she relates to the Rodzyneks
like to blood relatives. Which, in a
way, they now are...

Study Inquires
Into Women's Career Profile
NEW YORK does the
Jewish woman whose
spacious 35th-floor office
says "Senior Vice Presi-
dent, Investments" differ
any from the WASP woman
in the equally impressive
quarters down the hall?
What if any traits does she
share with the Jewish male
who breathes the same
heady corporate air? How
does she feel about being in
a world that only 30 years
ago would have excluded
her father and would
have barely believed its eyes
if it saw her mother trying
to get in?
And does she think her strug-
gles to gain a place in this world
have been either helped or harmed
by her being both a female and a
In hopes of answering these and
related questions, the American
Jewish Committee and Lilith a
quarterly magazine directed
toward Jewish women are
sponsoring what they believe to be
the first study ever undertaken of
the Jewish career woman. The
aim of the study, its organizers
say, is "to sketch, for the first
time in any systematic way, a pro-
file of the Jewish career woman"
who has attained, or seems clearly
on her way to attaining, success in
a business or professional arena.
DATA FOR the study which,
its research director stresses, "is
a pilot study that we know cannot
give final answers" are being
obtained through a questionnaire
which was inserted in an issue of
Lilith and is also being distributed
through American Jewish Com-
mittee chapters, Jewish Federa-
tion business and professional
women's groups, other Jewish
organizations, and executive
women's groups.
Of the approximately 12,000
questionnaires that have been
distributed, the researchers ex-
pect to get back about a thousand
usable ones. The findings are to be
published in about a year.
In addition to asking about
education, occupation, marital
status, number of children,
parents' and spouse's education
and occupation, and the like, the
study also asks questions such as:
At what stage in your life did
you decide to pursue a career?
Do you feel that your Jewish
identity or commitments had any
effect on the career you chose?
How do you feel that being
Jewish has affected your career
advancement? How do you feel
that your being a woman has af-
fected it?
Have you experienced anti-
Semitism on the job?
In general, do you feel that
the Jewish community in its at-
titude toward women combining
marriage, childbearing, and
careers is (supportive, neutral, un-
supportive)? How about the at-
titude of your own parents (and
husband, if married)?
Do you consider yourself a

Religious Party's Burg
To Quit Post in June
JERUSALEM (JTA) Yosef Burg, leader of the
National Religious Party who has held office in almost
every Israeli government since the State was founded, has
notified the NRP that he will resign his Cabinet post next
June 30. Burg, 75, is presently Minister of Religious Affairs
in the Labor-Likud unity coalition government.
HIS ANNOUNCEMENT was contained in a letter to
the NRP's internal elections committee. Burg's resignation
has been expected and he was, in fact, reported ready to
quit in November. The NRP, which has served in both
Labor and Likud-led coalitions, suffered severe setbacks in
recent elections.
It holds only two seats in the present Knesset and Burg
was forced to relinquish the senior Cabinet post of Interior
Minister to Rabbi Yitzhak Peretz of Shas, a new religious
party. Burg says the central issue to which he will devote
himself is rebuilding the Mizrachi movement in Israel.
Nazi Propagandist Zundel Ousted
From German Culture Festival
TORONTO (JTA) Ernst Zundel, who faces depor-
tation to his native Germany for spreading propaganda
that the Holocaust was a hoax, was ousted from a German
cultural festival in Kitchner, Ontario last weekend after its
organizers were flooded with protests.
ZUNDEL, free on bail pending the outcome of his ap-
peal against conviction for "spreading false news,"
displayed his paintings at the Christkindl (Christ Child)
show at the festival. He was asked politely to leave with his
art, according to Hans Grumme, one of the organizers. "He
just disappeared," Grumme said.
He admitted Zundel's participation in the festival "was
a slip on my part. I didn't know then what I do now. His
f>resence and name at the show were tasteless. None uf us
ike what this man stands for," Grumme said.
The two-day festival is a traditional occasion for the
sale of German and Austrian arts and crafts. Kitcher,
which has a large population of German origin, was named
Berlin under World War I.
housework and related activities?
If the Jewish community con-
sulted you on the best way to in-
vest money and other resources to
support Jewish career women,
which of the following priorities
would you suggest: (day care
centers, singles events, support
groups for dual-career couples,
asks about the respondent's civic
and professional activities, her in-
volvement with the Jewish com-
munity, her child care ar-
rangements, her religious obser-
vances, her personal conflicts, her
early exposure to the Jewish
religion and community, and her
opinions on several feminist and
Jewish issues, and it closes with
an open-ended question asking for
"your feelings about being a
Jewish woman in the world of
work, your family, and the Jewish
"This is a pilot study in two
ways," says Dr. Rela Geffen Mon-
son, professor of sociolgy at Gratz
College and research director of
the project. "First, it is a pioneer-
ing study: there has been no work
at all in this area before. Of course
the various surveys of managerial
women have included Jewish
women among their respondents,
but these investigations have not
asked about Jewish identity and
have not honed in on the special
areas we are looking at.
"We are trying to find out
whether the Jewish career
woman's profile looks like that of
other executive women, whether
being Jewish has anything to do
with her 'making it' in the
business world, whether she views
the Jewish community as a source
of support for herself, or a source
of problems."
"IT IS ALSO a pilot," con-
tinued Professor Monson, "in that
it is not a random sample of the
entire population of American
Jewish career women. At this mo-
ment it would be close to impossi-
ble, without absolutely enormous
financial resources, to do such a
random survey, and we know full
well that in our sample certain
groups will be underrepresented
and others overrepresented. "But
we think we will get some definite
impressions where previously
there were none at all, and we will
get a solid basis on which to build
future research."
To round out the study, said
Professor Monson, she will com-
pare its findings with what is
known about female executives in
general, and about male Jewish
executives, both of which groups
have been examined in several
Adding that the research team
plans to hold personal interviews
with a number of the respondents,
Linda Greenman, director of the
Center on Sexual Equality of the
American Jewish Committee's
National Affairs Department and
coordinator of the study, said that
the study sponsors hoped thus to
draw "not only an overall picture
of Jewish women on the way up,
but also several in-depth portraits
of individual women."
"We also hope ultimately," con-
tinued Ms. Greenman, "to com-
pare Jewish career women with
those of other ethnic groups. We
want to encourage other ethnic
groups whose women are moving
up such as Asians, Blacks, and
Italians to do studies similar to
ours so we can see where our com-
mon problems lie and work
together toward our common
PREDICTING that the study
would find some markea uu-
ferences between the Jewish
career woman and her non-Jewish
counterpart, Susan Weidman
Schneider, editor of Lilith,
pointed out that "earlier studies
of women moving up, especially in
the business world, have conclud-
ed that the typical high-
achievement women is in her 40s
or 50s, single or divorced, and
usually without children."
But, continued Schneider, who
is the author of a recently publish-
ed book "Jewish and Female:
Choices and Changes in Our Lives
Today," "for a number of reasons
including Judaism's stress on
the importance of marriage and
family, especially for women I
would hypothesize that Jewish
career women may not fit this pat-
tern, and that some of their con-
flicts over work and home life may
differ significantly from those of
other women."
When The Pen Is Mightier
Than The Thought
Come Now Haven't you thought about it long enough? For many
years you kept saying to yourself "I am too young to have a will drawn"
Then there was a time when you said "I am too poor to make a will and of
course, it costs too much".
The time for excuses is over now your assets add up to a substantial
amount even if you don't think so your house, vour car. vour stocks
your collections, your insurance add up to probably much more property
value than you suspect.
Now, if you don't take steps to have a will made, the State will step in
and distribute your property according to its laws, and the way your hard
earned assets will be distributed may not be in the slightest what you would
have done if you had expressed your wishes in a will.
Your attorney is professionally equipped to advise you as to how you
can conserve as much of your Estate as possible for your family and loved
ones and your community. So, use your pen now and stop thinking about

Women's Campaign Expanding
In Boca Area Country Clubs
A sense of excitement and an-
ticipation has been generated by
the activity around the Country
Club events of the Women's Divi-
sion this year, according to Doris
Cantor, Boca Raton Area chair-
women for the Country Clubs.
The Country Clubs activity will
peak with the annual luncheon on
Feb. 10 at the Boca Raton Hotel,
with Bess Myerson as the guest
Mrs. Cantor and her associate
chairwomen for the Boca area,
Judy Taxel and Ruth Schwartz,
have been hard at work to ensure
that this year new areas in Boca
will be represented at the lun-
cheon in force.
Doris Cantor organized the
Women's Division campaign in
Boca Lago in 10'981, and chaired
it then and in 1982. In 1983 she
continued to work with the ex-
ecutive comittee in Boca Lago.
and at the same time served as

Federation Sabbaths Set
At All Area Synagogues
The Family Division, as part of
its plans to help implement the
Community Theme, has embarked
on a series of "Federation Sab-
baths" sponsored at each and
every synagogue and temple in
the South County area.
The purpose, explained Ben-
jamin Bussin. Family Division
chairman, is not to solicit funds,
in no such program wili there be
any fund-raising. The purpose,
rather, is an educational one. For
the theme to really work, it is
essential that people throughout
the community will know what the
Federation is. what it does, why
and how.
An additional aim is to reinforce
and demonstrate the link which
exists between the various facets
of the community in this case
between the Federation as an um-
brella of the community and the
various congregations. Thus, a
schedule for a series of services at
which the Federation will be
honored, and in turn will provide a
guest speaker for the congrega-
tion, has been scheduled.
Two such Sabbath eves were
held on Dec. 20 at B'nai Torah

The Community Theme...
And A Poetic Response
The adoption of the Community
Theme this year has begun to pro-
duce some positive results from
various quarters, according to
both staff members and lay leaders
in the Campaign department.
Aside from a growing involve-
ment on the part of many people
who were previously not active in
community life, the Theme has
also inspired many to talk and act
about Jewish life in South County
(and in general) in more positive
terms, concerning both present
and future.
One such reaction to the Theme,
and to the unwritten agenda of
Jews here and in Israel, came
from a gentleman who has been in-
volved in community life but
sees himself getting ever more in-

Chef For All Seasons
Driving into the Federation
parking lot the other day I saw a
license plate that said "ZAIDA."
What memories that evoked I
didn't think that there were still
Zaidas and Bubbys out there, just
Grandmas and Grandpas!
I had a lovely Bubby and Zaida,
and Friday nights were special at
Friday, January 17, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 9
their home. My Zaida came from
Latvia where he had owned an
inn, but in London he became a
Master Tailor, making suits for
Royalty (including the Prince of
Wales). My Bubby, also from Lat-
via, raised a family and cocked
marvelous haimisha meals. She
pickled her own herrings, made
wonderful Pirogen and my
favorite dish of all Cholent.
There are many variations on
Cholent; the following is just one:
21& cups dried butter or navy
3 lbs. boneless brisket
Salt, pepper, paprika (sweet),
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsps. chicken fat or margarine
6 sliced onions
Marrow bones
8 peeled whole potatoes
Soak the beans in water to cover
overnight, then drain well. Rub
the brisket with the salt, pepper,
paprika and ginger then brown
quickly in the -chicken fat or
margarine, together with the
onions. Put in a deep earthenware
casserole or Dutch oven. Add the
brown sugar, drained soaked
beans, the potatoes and the mar-
row bones. Cover with boiling
water to about an inch above,
cover the dish and put in a 400
degree oven for 30 minutes until
contents start to bubble. Turn the
heat down to 250 degrees and
leave overnight. If you wish you
can check water level and add
more water before leaving it
It is only available to members of the American Jewish Congress.
Since we inaugurated our International Travel Program in 1958, some
350,000 members have participated in our tours to Israel, as well as to
40 countries on six continents. Tours which have earned the reputation
of being, quite simply, the best there are.
What is the American Jewish Congress?
We are a Jewish human rights and legal action organization, founded
nearly 70 years ago. Our original aims were to strive for the creation of a
Jewish homeland in Palestine; to fight all forms of inequality, discrimina-
tion and anti-Semitism; to strengthen ties between Jews of America and
Jews throughout the rest of the world.
That was 70 years ago. What about now?
Our goals are the same, but the issues have changed. Our support
of Israel is unqualified and fundamental. We have been, and remain, an
integral part of the Mid-East peace process. At home, we are not afraid
to denounce the bigotry of a Louis Farrakhan or strive to eliminate, in
the court> and out. all forms ot racism, bigotry, discrimination and anti-
What does this have to do with travel?
In our 40th anniversary year we determined that a concrete demon-
stration ot our concern for, and interest in. world Jewry would be to give
our membership the opportunity of traveling to Israel and many other
countries with Jewish communities. Since then, we have become the
world's largest Jewish travel program.
What is so special about traveling with AJCongress?
Our tours are renowned for excellence, sophistication, innovation,
style and unrivaled value. Our members travel together, never with com-
mercial tour groups Everywhere we go, we arrange unusual and special
events, bnetinys on local Jewish life, meetings with Jewish communities
plus visits to each country's most popular sites and attractions.

The Night Of The Cancelled Flight
Olympic Airlines, the na-
tional air carrier of Greece,
was forced to cancel a flight
to Cairo after the pilot
refused to take off because
three officials of the
Palestine Liberation
Organization were among
the passengers.
The incident, and un-
precedented checking and re-
checking of airline passengers and
their baggage by swarms of
security agents, highlight the
panic here since Palestinian
gunmen attacked the airports at
Rome and Vienna Dec. 27. The
terrorist outrage, which cost 18
lives, has triggered a wave of anti-
Arab sentiment in Greece.
seeks good relations with the
Arab world, is trying to counter it
by differentiating between
"good" and "bad" Palestinians,
with the PLO fitting into the
former category.
Olympic Flight 325, bound for
Cairo, was due to depart at 6:15
p.m. local time Dec. 28. Before
any passengers boarded, a squad
of police officers came aboard and
asked the pilot, Capt. Acrivou
Tsolaki, for permission to search
the aircraft. This had never hap-
pened before. When the pilot ask-
ed why, he was told by the senior
police officer that it was part of
new security measures ordered by

of the Rome and Vienna attacks.
Later, after the passengers had
taken their seats, the police
ordered another security check
and suitcase identification. The
passengers were required to get
off the plane and identify their
luggage, which had also been off-
loaded. Only then were they allow-
ed to return to their seats.
FINALLY, the doors were clos-
ed, and the plane was ready to
taxi to the runway for take-off
when a car approached under
tight security, and three men who
appeared to be Arabs came on
board and were seated in different
sections of the cabin.
By then Capt. Tsolaki was
curious. He asked the chief of
security to identify his last-minute
passengers and was informed that

On learning who they were,
Tsolaki flatly refused to fly the
plane to Cairo on grounds that it
would be endangered. A
marathon discussion ensued in-
volving the Olympic management,
Minister of Public Transportation,
Georgios Papdimitriou and
Tsouras. But Tsolaki stood firm.
At 9 p.m., the flight was
THE GREEK pilot maintained
that since Israel has vowed to
avenge the attacks in Rome and
Vienna aimed at El Al passenger
facilities, his plane could become a
target of the Israel Air Force if it
was known to be carrying top
PLO officials.
Flight 325 was rescheduled for
Sunday morning, with a different
pilot, Capt. Evangelos Kapsalis.
But he, too, refused to fly with the
PLO men aboard. Finally, the
PLO officials were forced to leave
Greece on three separate flights.
There was no official comment,
but according to rumor the entire
affair was the result of Egypt's
refusal to allow the PLO officials
to land in Cairo. Egyptair, the
Egyptian airline, reportedly
refused them passage.
Meanwhile, the Athens airport
is literally surrounded by heavily
armed police, and the crack anti-
terrorist unit maintains a round-
the-clock patrol, focusing on the
El Al ticket counter. Greek
policemen and policewomen in
civilian clothes are scattered
among boarding passengers,
pretending to be passengers.
ACCORDING TO one report,
the panic was triggered by the
chief of the Italian secret service
(SISMI), Fluvio Martini, who said
that the surviving terrorist cap-
tured in the Rome airport attack
admitted under questioning that
Athens and Madrid airports were
the next targets of a suicide squad
dispatched by Abu Nidal, the ter-
rorist leader who broke with the
PLO years ago.
Meanwhile, the government is
countering rising anti-Arab senti-
ment in Greece with what some
observers consider anti-Israel tac-
tics. On the evening news Sunday
night, the commentator said there
were two kinds of terrorism ex-
tremist groups and state
He claimed that state terrorism
was first employed by Israel on
July 4, 1976 when it rescued hi-
jacked Air France passengers be-
ing held hostage at Entebbe,
Uganda, and that another exam-
ple was the Egyptian commando
raid on the Egyptair plane hijack-
ed to Malta last Nov. 23, which
resulted in heavy loss of life. The
Egyptian airliner was hijacked
shortly after taking off from
Athens for Cairo.
The government is trying to
dispel anti-Arab feelings because
it is dangerously low in foreign
currency reserves and hopes to
get short-term loans from the
wealthy Arab oil-producing
UNTIL NOW, the Greek
government has made no distinc-
tions between the various Palesti-
nian groups. Beginning last
weekend, it discovered "good"
Palestinians, represented by
Yasir Arafat and the PLO, and
"bad" ones, who are against the
PLO. A television commentator
noted that Israel accuses all
Palestinians without exception of
being terrorists.
Second Beirut Jew Found
Slain on New Year's Day
body of Isaac Tarrah, a 53-year-
old Beirut Jew, was found in the
Lebanese capital on New Year's
Day. He was one of four Beirut
Jews kidnapped last March and
the second to be murdered by
Shiite Moslem extremists calling
themselves "The Organization of
the Oppressed of the World." The
first victim was Haim Cohen
Halala whose body was found in
Beirut on Dec. 25.
The Shiite group announced
that it "executed" Tarrah to
avenge anti-Shiite acts by the
Israel-backed South Lebanon Ar-
my (SLA), including the demoli-
tion of houses in Kounin village in
south Lebanon. The SLA blew up
the houses from which two of its
soldiers were killed in an ambush
last week that also wounded an
Israel Defense Force liaison of-
ficer. The families occupying the
houses were evicted and expelled
from the village.
After Halala's body was found
in the no-man's-land between east
and west Beirut, the same Shiite
group announced "the execution
of Israeli spy Haim Cohen Halala
in response to the massive shell-
ing of south Lebanon in which
several strugglers were killed."
Halala was abducted from his
west Beirut home on Mar. 29. Tar-
rah and two other local Jews were
seized at the same time.

pointment of Likud MK Michael

High Rate Bond Available For IRA Accounts
Eugene B. Squires, general
chairman of South County Israel
Bonds, has announced that a new
feature of the Individual Variable

purchases in $2,000 increments
for use in an IRA account.
"We are pleased to announce
that Joel Halpern, vice president
of Prudential Bache Securities in
Delray, has made arrangements
for his firm to administer these ac-
counts," said Squires.
The IVRI is currently paying 7

prime, will always be competitive
in the marketplace. "It enables
working people to participate in
the bonds program and benefit
from a higher yielding instru-
ment," said Julie Jackson, ex-
ecutive director. "When discre-

Shortly after Rabbi Meir
Kahane was elected to the
Knesset, he submitted a number
of bills aimed at imposing restric-
tions on non-Jews. Only Jews
would be able to be citizens of the
State, for example, and a non-Jew
having sexual relations with a
Jewish woman would be imprison-
ed. MKs from all parties said the
proposals bore a striking
resemblance to the infamous
Nuremberg race laws. The
Speaker of the Knesset, Shlomo
Hillel, asked the House Commit-
tee to authorize him to refuse to
submit any bill of a racist
character, to expel from the
chamber any MK who made a
racist remark; and to strike that
remark off the record. At that
time the House Committee agreed
unanimously. However, Kahane
took the issue to the High Court of
Justice, which ruled in his favor
on the grounds that the action of
the Knesset presidium was not an-
chored in the House rules. So the
House Committee reconvened to
amend the House rules, but at this
point the"Likud and Tehiya party
representatives demanded that

tion can be made anytime. Israel
needs you."

Egyptian trade and tourism with
Israel though it has dwindled
almost to the vanishing point
and he urged Israel to exercise
restraint in responding to the ter-
rorist attacks on El Al passenger
facilities at the Rome and Vienna
airports Dec. 27.
PERES, therefore, is determin-
ed to press for a swift resolution
of the Taba issue. The formula
said to have been agreed to by the
Israeli and Egyptian negotiators
last month, calls for arbitration
a concession to Cairo. But the ar-
bitrators would be empowered to
propose compromise solutions,
the goal of conciliation, during the
early stages of the arbitration
Israel would call this stage con-
ciliation, the mode favored by
Likud. Egypt would refrain from
using the word "conciliation,"
agreeing simply to "other means"
employed by the arbitrators.
According to sources close to
Peres, agreement has also been
reached with Cairo that
whichever side loses in the ar-
bitration process, it will continue
to have access to Taba and
specifically to the luxury resort
hotel built there more than a year
ago by Israel entrepreneurs.

ED NEWMAN: Purest quest is for knowledge.
Dolphin Ed Newman
His Faith in Triumph Over Adversity
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Once in a while, despite
every effort to remain
detached and objective,
some event or individual
manages to strip away a
journalist's sang froid. Ed
Newman of the Miami
Dolphins is that kind of
He sat on the exercycle, pedall-
ing mile after mile, the purplish
scar on his wrecked knee rising
and falling like the careers of his
peers in professional football.
than expected, he pedalled, occa-
sionally acknowledging the
greetings of his teammates pass-
ing the pool on their way to the
practice field beyond. Rock music
poured from speakers mounted
above the adjacent weight room.
Barbells clanged as Lyle
Blackwood, nursing his own in-
jury, completed his repetitions on
the bench press.
"I've only got another 18
minutes left," Newman said,
removing the headset radio from
his ears. Did he mind a couple of
"Not at all. Would you hand me
that gray T-shirt over there?"
Disappointed, I gave it to him.
Why did he prefer to cover up?
"I think it's a showing of vanity
which is against my own personal
belief. And I think it's probably
one of the aspects of being Jewish,
part of that culture I've carried
along with me over the years."
IS THIS the way a 6-foot,
2-inch, 255-pound Miami Dolphin
guard is supposed to sound? After
all, the guy makes a living throw-
ing his body into other equally hef-
ty men.
"The old Talmudic scholars
would argue that the only thing of
value is the study of the Torah,
the study of the Law, and that
anything else is a false idol, a
quest of folly. In fact, it's a proven
thing that ultimately we all must
fail, physically. A more pure quest
is for knowledge, which is more
difficult, but it's more lasting."
So why did he want his shirt on
for the photos?
"Even though I'm blessed with
a good-serving body, it's not
something I worship in its own
right. It's a tool, a means to an
end. To me it's the result of a
strong body, not the benefit of
looking good that's important. Be-
ing Jewish probably has
something to do with that
HOW DOES this thinking man
feel about his "tool?"
"Coach Shula runs a very
military type of operation, and it's
apropos because it's war out
there. And like in war, you have to
have weapons. The team or the
player with the superior weapons
usually prevails. My arms, my
shoulders, my back, my legs
those are my weapons, those are
my guns. Coach Shula has taught
me that all players put on their
pants the same way, but the dif-
ference is how you get a winning
edge. You put in your effort to
become a little bit stronger, so I
train harder."
This concept of the "winning
edge" is a Shula trademark. How
does Newman use it to his
"I have that confidence that's
an intangible asset that you can
bring in knowing that hey! I've
sacrificed a lot more, I've benefit-
ted from that sacrifice a lot more
than my opponent and I have that
slight edge the winning edge."
NEWMAN, 34, severely injured
his knee during a pre-season
game. The moment it occurred, he
thought it was "just a strain. I
didn't realize how serious it was. I
tore the medial collateral and in-
terior cruciate ligaments." His
doctor completely rebuilt the joint
using tissue from other parts of
his knee.
The result? Placement on the
injured-reserve list for the entire
season and a long, painful
rehabilitation process for the
eleven-year veteran. In addition,
he'll be missing Sunday's play-off
game in Miami's Orange Bowl
against the New England Patriots
for the AFC championship. A bit-
ter disappointment.
Four-and-a-half months later,
Newman's prognosis is positive,
but he refuses to speculate on his
future with the team, or in
As a second-year law student
these days and undergraduate
psychology major, what about the
mental aspects of the game?
"I had an old coach named
Monte Clark who taught me
something about psycho-
cybernetics. In a nutshell, we are
like heat-seeking missiles. You go
on toward the target, you're a lit-
tle bit off the goal, but you can
correct and target in on the heat.
The more efficient weapon is one
that can correct that much sooner.
The way to do that is to break
down each individual correction
period into smaller and smaller
quanta. It's what I try to do."
TO ILLUSTRATE the point,
Newman said, "In high school 1
used to say I'd like to have a good
season. In college I'd say I'd like
to have a good game. On the pro
level with the competition as it is,
I'd like to have a good play. And I
try to put 60 of them into a
Newman prepares for each play
by drawing a mental picture of a
result that is "reasonable,
realistic and attainable. Of course,
it all begins with practice and
practice and practice with Dan
Marino and Don Shula. You go
through a situation a thousand
times for one time on the field."
What has Newman noticed
about the transition from college
to pro football?
"In college, players are indepen-
dent entities. They're each work-
ing for their area of responsibility.
In pro, it's all correlated. Believe
it or not, a safety on my right com-
ing up can mean something to a
defensive end on my left. I see
variations of a foot or two. A
defense is coordinated, it's a puz-
zle of interlocking parts."
NEWMAN obviously takes a
philosophical approach to playing
the game. How much does he
share with younger players, his
Quite a bit, he said, particularly
with his lineman cohorts. "I ad-
vocate the winning edge concept.
You have to realize that when you
have a Dan Marino, he's a single
personality and makes a similar
type of impact on our team. Offen-
sive linemen as a unit perhaps
make a similar type of impact.
"It takes five offensive linemen
to equal one Dan Marino. With
that in mind, I try to bring us all
together. I've been the elder
stateman, the veteran for
sometime now, and I work with
Bob Kuechenberg in that capaci-
ty, and before that, even Larry
Little. You get to know each other
like family, not only like one entity
on the offensive line, but you get
to be one family. You live and die
together, you take your lumps
from the coach and from your op-
ponents, and you're there."
WITH SHULA'S reputation as
a perfectionist with a temper,
whom does Newman fear more,
his opponent or his coach?
"That's an interesting ques-
tion," he said, considering his
response. "In the Miami Dolphins
scheme of things, sometimes you
don't know if your opponent is the
coach or the defensive lineman or
linebacker on the other side of the
line of scrimmage."
Nevertheless, Newman stressed
his willingness to help his col-
leagues acquire "the winning
edge" by sharing whatever
knowledge he has, particularly
when watching films of op-
ponents' plays.
"We try to develop a kind of
silent communication," he said.
"There's an unspoken com-
munication that has to be down.
Otherwise we'd be pointing
fingers at each other."
THERE HAVE been times
when the Dolphins have been ac-
cused of letting down, allowing
other teams to get back into a
game after they had dominated
throughout much of the contest.
What does Newman do to help
these lapses?
"You think it's easier if you just
let down a little bit, but that's not
the case here. It may be physically
easier, but after Coach Shula gets
through with you, it's a lot easier
to do it right. It may take another
three or five percent additional ef-
fort that's the winning edge.
That additional effort gives you a
jump on your opponent, and you
win. That's it. You win. You're in
the Super Bowl."
What does an All-Pro offensive
guard listen to on the radio? The
answer is not "anything he
"This was a Chanukah pre-
sent," he said, smiling. "I listen to
the news, stock market reports,
the bombing of El Al, in fact."
Stock market reports? Is he an
"Yes, a very conservative one, I
might add." He advocates

second mortgages as investments,
land holdings and owning his own
business. He's a two-thirds part-
ner in Ed Newman's Fitness
Center, a weight-training and ex-
ercise establishment in North
basically healthy. He's visible.
How does he react to all the atten-
tion, the flattery, that go along
with fame?
"Flattery is another one of
those false idols. I don't get a lot
of succor in flattery. I do get some
succor from a Super Bowl ring on
my finger, being invited to the Pro
Bowl, having the respect and ad-
miration of my peers, my
coaches." Conspicuously absent
from this list is the media atten-
tion many athletes crave. How
does he feel about the media?
"The press has a partnership
with management to present a
package for the consumption of
the public. That's great. It's a
very important thing. It's good
that a player should participate in
that for the good of the game
because it trickles down, and you
get some benefit. But when it
starts becoming a distraction, it
undermines your performance."
DOESN'T the public have a
right to know what a player
thinks, especially if they shell out
their hard-earned money to watch
that player perform?
"I like to think of myself as a
truthful person," he responded.
"But you can't be perfectly candid
about all aspects of your life when
you're talking to 100,000 ears. Or
a million. The reporter,
sometimes quite deceptively, with
misleading questions, brings out
information or testimony that you
really wouldn't want a million peo-
ple to hear. So you have to be on
guard. You can't always say what
is actually on your mind and
what's actually truthful. You have
to say what's careful. You have to
censor yourself."
This is Newman's perception of
the situation at its best. How about
at its worst?
"At its worst, there aren't any
checks on the media," he said.
"There is no Bill of Rights for
players giving interviews. You
can't say, "This is off the record*
and expect it to be honored. You
can't ask, 'Where are you coming
from in this interview?' before the
interview oocers. Ton rarely will
receive an article far a prepared
statement. So yea Might be com-
ing into an interview expecting to
express something, and what
comes out is something else
BUT ED, a lot of times the pro-
ducers or editors completely alter
a piece. Isn't that a common
"The editors of the various
newspapers and some of the other
media are very much into sensa-
tidnatism. The gist of an article
can *De written one way, and the
headline is 180 degrees the other
way. The reporter says, 'Hey
I'm not responsible for the
headline. I just submit the copy.
The editor puts the headline in.'
The headline is made just to at-
tract the eye of the public, you
know, 'Buy my paper!' and it's
very often what sells the paper.
"Also, controversy sells papers.
Sometimes it's at the expense of
the sense of family unity a team
has. Sometimes it's at the expense
of a code of ethics betwen players.
The media would love to reduce
pro football to a pro wrestling
type of thing where you say you're
gonna stomp on the man and cut
his eyeballs out and kill his
mother. They'd like us to be
threatening each other like that.
They'd love to get that kind of
HAS ANYTHING like this ever
happened to him?
"I've had good experiences
generally. My own personal
awareness of the severity of the
situation happened in the '82
strike period when I was player-
representative for the team, and I
didn't think there was fair treat-
ment by the press. I saw the same
thing happen in 1976 when that
strike period was working out.
The machinery is set up for
management, and for public con-
sumption, and it's not always true
or accurate."
Does he feel that he's been ill-
treated by the press at some time?
"No, not really," he said chuckl-
ing. "I don't have a problem per-
sonally, but I'm speaking in
general, and I want to make.that
IN LIGHT of his philosophy
concerning the press, how does
Newman handle the hoopla sur-
rounding the playoffs and sports'
biggest media event the Super
Bowl? He himself, after all had
played in several Dolphins Super
Bowl games.
"It's wonderful that they want
to have free access to the players,
and they've negotiated with
management the right to
unlimited interviews. I wasn't a
party to that agreement. They say
I am, it's part of my collective
bargaining agreement with my
union, it's in my individual
player's contract, but I beg to dif-
fer. Freedom of speech also has an
implied freedom not to speak. At
the Super Bowl, it got to the point
where the media were more of the
'Coach Shula runs a military
type of operation, which is
apropos because it's war out
there,' Newman said, display-
ing his weapons.

event than the game, and that's
upside down. That's terrible. It
Ixjcame a distraction that I didn't
need. It was through
perseverance that I was able to
keep a low profile."
How much of Ed Newman's life
is football?
"When I was in college at Duke
University, I thought of myself as
a student who happened to be
playing football. I got a pretty
good draft pick, sixth round, to
the Dolphins, a Super Bowl team
(champions in 1972 and 1973) and
I still had that concept here I
am, I'm a Duke graudate looking
for some future direction, who
happens to be playing football,
which was a stopgap.
"THAT WAS definitely my ap-
proach. Then, in 1974, my second
year in the league, while I was
harboring this concept, I got this
goiter in my neck. It was a malig-
nant thyroid tumor which had to
be removed."
For the first time in his life,
Newman had to face his own im-
mortality. "And I was from that
point on the very strongest man
on the Miami Dolphins squad, and
have been for the past eleven
"To do that, I made a transfor-
mation. No longer am I a graduate
from Duke who happens to be
playing football. I've made the
transition. I've been doing it long
enough. I am a pro football player
for the purpose of being the very
best at my profession that I can
be. I consumed myself with it. Did
everything I could with it.
Tempered, of course, by the
realization that all good things
come to an end. Hopefully, that
end is not there for me yet, but I
am aware that it's a very strong
possibility any moment could be
your last."
NEWMAN, like so many Jews,
has a social conscience. How does
he balance his responsibilities?
"I had a frustrating time about
six or seven years go," he said.
"As far as my responsibility to the
community, I found that I was
spread out giving a little bit to a
lot of people and not really mak-
ing much impact. I was speaking
to every organization that needed
a speaker gratis and was
making myself available to
anyone. I was giving out all sorts
of money if there was a need, and
I just felt inadequate. I felt I was
just scratching the surface.
"Back in 1978, I got involved,
with United "Way and saw that
that was a pretty 'good way W'
focus my energies and attention
and use my celebrity value to
make a difference."
WAS IT through the United
Way that he became involved with
the South Florida Blood Service?
"That's where it really came
together for me. Here I am,
emerging as a role model and ex-
ample of perseverance overcom-
ing adversity, and I found the
ideal charity to focus my attention
and somewhat abate my guilt.
Here's something that I don't
have to stand there with hat in
hand and ask people to lay out
cash. I ask them to lay out the
ultimate resource the gift of
life. It doesn't cost anything, it's
just an unselfish act, where
everybody can be a hero. Because
the ultimate hero is a life-saver."
HOW DOES Newman describe
his realtionship with his
"I am a Jew," he said simply. "I
tell everyone I meet, when asked,
that I am a Jew. I feel it's wrong
to have a chip on your shoulder,
whether you're an ostrich or a
super-Zionist, whether you're
coming from strength or
weakness. I'm happy with my
beliefs and I'm proud of my
"Over the years, I've been
somewhat of a problem to certain
preconceived stereotypes and pre-
juduces thrust upon me. The
established institution of football
doesn't have a lot of Jewish foot-
ball players, and they have this
idea that Jewish football players
are supposed to be doctors and
lawyers and other types of profes-
sionals you know, money peo-
ple. Because that's what they see.
A lot of Jewish boys, through
their upbringing, are perhaps
guided into other things.
"The prejudice that spins off is
that 'Jews are soft,' or 'they can't
take pain,' or 'they don't have
what it takes,' this kind of thing.
Prior to the Holocaust, the Jew
was considered a soft person, a
person that would try to get out of
it politically or financially before
he would stand up and fight.
"Now those images and
stereotypes have been altered by
the State of Israel and the subse-
quent wars.
"THE JEW today, especially in
America, has changed his
stereotype as a fighter, a person
that's not going to back down, and
I feel like my relationship with my
religion is to further modify the
perceived stereotype.
"I want the world to know," he
continued, "that Jewish people,
like all people, can do pretty much
what they put their mind to, and
that there's no difference in
physical stature, heart, ability,
toughness, or any other descrip-
tion you want to bring out. It's a
matter of choice if anything. I've
made my choice and I'm going to
be the very very best. Any Jewish
young man that wants to do the
same thing can do it."
In making his choice, Newman
feels he's cured misconceptions in
the Christian community as well
as established a role model for the
Jewish community.
MARRIED AND with two
young daughters, Newman is a
member of Temple Bet Shira. "I
would like them to grow up with a
Hebrew education," he said, "and
I'd like them to marry within the
faith, although I might differ from
a lot of Jewish people in that I
don't want a big Bat Mitzvah par-
ty. I have more or less a trip to
Israel in mind. I think that the
party's really not for the child, it's
for the parents. And just like my
thing with the press, I really don't
need the adoration of my friends.
"If I want to give them adora-
tion, I'll take them out to dinner. I
don't need to throw away tens of
thousands of dollars. Stephanie,
Holly, you're Jewish. This is
where it started. This is what it's
about. This is your responsibility.
Take the baton and bring it on to
the next generation."
What kinds of anti-Semitic in-
cidents are memorable in
Newman's life?
"There are different forms of
anti-Semitism. There's a lot of
passive anti-Semitism going
around. A lot of that is
misconceived appreciation of
what a Jew is all about. Some of it
is dangerous, or at least flirts with
being dangerous, like if you're not
with Christ you're with Satan. It's
hard to handle that kind of stuff
and it's dangerous because it can
mature into more vicious forms."
NEWMAN WAS reluctant to
discuss any specific episodes.
"They happen," he said, admit-
ting he was "holding back."
"I'm holding back because
they're insignificant, they have
not interfered with my life. They
have been an obstacle that you
just step around. You modify and
adapt as you go. This is a part of
life. There's prejudice in this
world. This is a Christian world.
You don't have to break, you can
bend. I see my teammates playing
in playoff games on Christmas
day, and I've practiced on Yom
Kippur, so there's a fairness. We
have a contract between men, and
I think that's important to honor.
"I have run face into those
perceived stereotypes, and they
bother me. I stand up for myself
when the issue of religion comes
up. If someone inadvertently says
something in the locker room
about someone else, without
thinking that there might be a
Jewish person around, I stand up
and I say, 'You ought to be embar-
rassed for yourself.' I think I
teach in that way."
THE TEACHER is also a stu-
dent. Ed Newman is currently in
his second year of law school at
the University of Miami. A
psychology major as an
undergraduate, he could have
become Dr. Ed Newman. Why
"My brother-in-law, Andrew
Leinoff, who is also my best friend
and mentor, is an attorney here in
town. He sat down with me a cou-
ple of years ago and said, 'Ed, you
have a good mind, and you have a
great reputation. You can use
both to have a comfortable future
here in Miami. There's no reason
for you to leave town for lack of
anything better. You've got good
roots, let them tap and go deeper.'
"So he pretty much pulled me
by the ear, and we met Dean Jean-
nette Hausler at the UM and talk-
ed about the possibilities. I admit
my grades from Duke were weak,
but she stated that if I could get a
minimum score on the LSAT, I
could get in. I took a preparatory
course and I scored higher than I
needed. I showed that I was ac-
ceptable as far as that exam was
"My father taught me that you
have immortality as long as you
are remembered. Jewish peopfe
remember their relatives by nam-
ing their children after them.
That's fine, but it's still only good
for a generation or two. I would
like to sustain a legacy, to con-
tinue growing and contributing to
this world and making a dif-
ference, an impact. That's what I
hope. I hope to leave a legacy."

The Public Is Invited.
at the Ebenezer Missionary Bap-
tist Church in Boca Raton.
This service is co-sponsored by
Ebenezer, Boca Raton's oldest
and largest black church, and Con-
gregation B'nai Israel.
Rabbi Richard Agler of Con-
gregation B'nai Israel said: "Mar-
tin Luther King was a leader who
transcended the divisions in our
society; divisions of race, color,
and creed. That is why his birth-
day has been designated a na-
tional holiday and that is why we
come together again to focus on
what unites us rather than what
divides us."
The cooperative venture recalls
the Martin Luther King era when
blacks and Jews marched and
demonstrated together on behalf
of civil rights and justice. "Dr.
King's spirit led us to many trium-
phs," said Rabbi Agler, "but the
struggle against racism and pre-
judice is far from won."
Congregation B'nai Israel and
the Ebenezer Missionary Baptist
Church have developed a special
relationship. There have been a
number of pulpit exchanges, joint
services and fellowships between
the two congregations. According
to Rev. Anthony Holliday, pastor
of the church, "It is important
that our two groups renew our
commitment to one another and it
is especially appropriate that we
do so on an occasion such as this.
Dr. King's spirit retains its power
to move us all."
The two congregations were
first motivated to come together
during the presidential election
campaign of 1984, when tensions
between blacks and Jews became
evident on the national level. "We
feel that by our efforts, we have
done a great deal to increase
understanding and reduce tension
here in our community," said Rab-
bi Agler, "the overriding concern
of both peoples is our effort to
build a fair, just and decent socie-
ty. Our differences pale in the face
of this challenge."
The service, in honor of Dr.
King's birthday, will begin at 11
a.m. at the Ebenezer Missionary
Baptist Church, 200 N.E. 12th
Street, in Boca Raton.
Dr. Joseph Sckenker, head of the Obstetrics and Gynecology
