Artukovic departed from Ken-
nedy International Airport at ap-
proximately 12:30 a.m. on
Wednesday, Feb. 12, after
Supreme Court Justice William
Rehnquist, without comment,
refused to block his extradition.
The Tanjug News Agency, the of-
ficial Yugoslav news agency in
Belgrade, reported that Artukovic
had arrived. The news agency
said, "Artukovic was transferred
to Yugoslavia and turned over to
court authorities."
Department said the accused war
criminal was surrendered to
Yugoslav authorities who return-
ed him to Zagreb in northern
Yugoslavia for trial on murder
charges. A surrender warrant was
signed June 3, 1986 by deputy
Secretary of State John
Whitehead, the Department said.
Two Jewish organizations who
have closely monitored the legal
proceedings involving Artukovic
the Los Angeles-based Simon
Wieeenthal Center and the World
Jewish Congress immediately
expressed their gratitude to the
Justice and State Departments
for their persistent efforts leading
to Artukovic's extradition.
The 86-year-old Artukovic, of
Seal Beach, a seaside community
south of Loa Angeles, is accused
by the Justice Department of the
wartime persecution or murder of
700,000 Serbians, 40,000 gypsies
and 28,000 Jews while he was In-
terior Minister of Croatia. Suffer-
ing from various physical and
health related ailments, Artukovic
had been confined to the detention
facilities at the University of
South Carolina Medical Center
since his arrest in November,
1984, on the second of two ex-
tradition requests from
ARTUKOVIC had lived in
California since entering the U.S.
in 1948 through the use of
fraudulent documents, according
to the Justice Department's Office
of Special Investigations. His
deportation was ordered in 1952,
at the same time Yugoslav of-
ficials were requesting his ex-
tradition for trial on 22 counts of
murder stemming from alleged
war crimes.
Artukovic has always em-
phatically denied the charges, and
in 1959, a U.S. district court turn-
ed down the extradition request,
holding that there was insufficient
evidence of guilt. That same year,
the deportation order was stayed
by an immigration commissioner
on the grounds that Artukovic
would be persecuted if he return-
ed to his native land.
In 1978, Congress amended the
Immigration Act to provide that
such stays could not be granted to
members of wartime German
governments who are accused of
atrocities. U.S. immigration
authorites then renewed their ef-
forts to have Artukovic deported,
and the 1959 stay was ordered
ARTUKOVIC appealed, and in
December, 1982, the U.S. 9th Cir-
cuit Court of Appeals in Los
Angeles ruled that before the stay
could be lifted, the government
would have to prove its case, thus
providing a significant setback to
prosecutors in the case. To avoid a
drawn-out deportation battle,
U.S. officials reportedly en-
couraged the Yugoslavs to file a
new extradition request.
On November 14, 1984, Ar-
tukovic was arrested by U.S. Mar-
shals and local police on a new ex-
tradition request. Among the
charges brought by the Yugoslav
government against him are that
he commanded the extermination
of thousands of persons, including
the entire population of several
villages in early 1942.
Recently, an appeal by Ar-
tukovic against extradition was
denied by U.S. District Court
Chief Judge Manuel Real. Ar-
tukovic had ten days to file an ap-
peal on Real's ruling and the 9th
Circuit Court of Appeals in Los
Angeles denied a stay of extradi-
tion. That action was soon follow-
ed by the Supreme Court action.
Call Me 'Natan'
Dissident Fears He'll Wake Up
Anatoly Sharansky, who
changed his given name to
Natan when he arrived in
Israel last week, told of the
brutal punishments he en-
dured during his nine years
in the Soviet Gulag and
spoke of his plans for the
future in his first television
interview here.
He said he expected his mother,
Ida Milgrom, and his brother,
Leonid, to join him in Israel
"within a month." "I am hoping
for this. This was part of the deal"
for the East-West prisoner ex-
change of which he was a part,
Sharansky said.
The 38-year-old, slightly built,
balding mathematician, computer
expert and cybernetics scientist
proved deft in his responses to
questions on matters that are
fiercely controversial in Israel.
Asked if. he was "a religious
man," a matter that has intrigued
Israelis because his wife, A vital
Sharansky, seated by his side,
became Orthodox since she im-
migrated to Israel in 1974, the
aliya activist gave no direct reply.
BUT IN THE course of the in-
terview, he recalled that he was
punished by 130 days in solitary
confinement in his Soviet prison
because he had gone on a hunger
strike to protest the confiscation
of a book cf Psalms.
Asked his opinion of the "Eretz
Israel" issue, the question of
whether Israel should retain all of
the Arab lands it conquered in the
1967 war or trade land for peace,
Sharansky said he reserved judg-
ment because he still had much to
learn about the subject, to which
the TV anchorman interjected,
"Don't worry, you will."
Sharansky said he hoped to
resume his profession in Israel
he was a computer and
cybernetics technologist at the
Moscow Research Institute before
his dismissal in 1975 for applying
for an exit visa but he was con-
cerned that his knowledge is out-
dated considering the rapid ad-
vances in those fields during his
nine years incarceration.
"I THINK I will have problems,
but these aren't very difficult pro-
blems ... But it is too early to
make concrete plans," Sharansky
said. Asked if he planned to enter
politics in Israel, he replied, "I
certainly won't be a professional
politician. But I think I have a du-
ty to use my unique experience in
order to help other people who...
are still in Russia. We A vital
and I must consider how to use
our experience. Hers is even more
unique than mine," he said.
With respect to the ongoing
controversy in Israel and world
Jewry over tactics in the struggle
for Soviet Jews activism versus
quiet diplomacy, Sharansky said
in effect that he favored a two-
track approach.
In the early 1970's he recalled,
he and other Moscow activists op-
posed the quiet diplomacy ap-
proach of President Nixon and
Secretary of State Henry Kiss-
inger. "But on the other hand,
pressures without diplomacy are
also ineffective," he said.
ON THE subject of his health,
Sharansky said, "I had some very
bad periods problems with my
heart and my eyes. This was the
result of their holding me in
solitary confinement for more
than 400 days in all Today I
told a doctor here about condi-
tions in solitary, and he was frank-
ly stunned and asked how it was
possible to survive such
Sharansky noted that under
Soviet penal law, 16 days was the
longest time allowed to keep a
prisoner in solitary confinement.
But his warders ignored the law.
"For instance, when they took
away this little book of Psalms,
claiming I was not allowed to have
religious books, I began a hunger
strike. And (as punishment) for
that they put me in solitary for
130 days. After 92 days I
Recalling his years in prison and
labor camps, Sharansky said,
"Many times in my dreams I
would see how I arrive in our land
and how A vital greets me. Each
time it ended the same way: I
woke up. Now, too. though this
dream is lasting for three whole
days, since they took me from the
KGB prison in Moscow, i am
afraid to wake up

On the Subject of Wills a
Jewish Perspective
Since coming to Florida almost
two years ago, I am still amazed at
the number of exhortations in
regards to redoing one's will to
conform to Florida statues. I have
no reason to doubt that this is pro-
bably very good advice, but the
constant reminder to redo one's
will has awakened within me the
whole are a in Jewish life known
as Ethical Wills.
Generally, when we write a will,
we are told how we can avoid cer-
tain taxes; how we can distribute
wealth legally so that our wishes
can truly be realized. However,
Jewish wills in the past were plac-
ed in a category known as Ethical
Wills. Wills were meant to be
more than legal maneuvering
they were meant to be a summa-
tion of one's personal outlook on
life and a guide to future genera-
tions as to how to live at one's
While there are wills in all of
Hebrew literature, Medieval
Hebrew literature contained much
that we classify as Ethical Wills.
Schocken Books, in 1983, publish-
ed a volume entitled Ethical Wills
A Modern Jewish Treasury
with annotations by Jack Reimer
and Nathaniel Stampfer. This
volume is replete with ethical
ideas for writing our own ethical
wills, thus helping to define what
it means to be Jewish and human
in 1986. In general, ethical
literature usually is involved in
lengthy theories for behaving in a

certain manner, but ethical wills
just point out the right way. Many
ethical wills begin with the words,
"my son."
Judah Ibn-Tibbon's ethical will,
written about 1190 and addressed
to his son Samuel, contains prac-
tical instructions from a father to
a son on moral behavior and also
includes items of poetry and many
family references. Ethical wills
became very popular in the 13th
Century. The strong Jewish
Medieval custom of preparing
Ethical Wills was passed down to
Eastern Europe in the 16th and
17th centuries. In the 16th cen-
tury Abraham Horowitz wrote an
important ethical will which in
itself became an independent
ethical work-'TesA Nohalin." His
son Jacob added to this work and
the grandson carried on this
Ethical wills even reflected ma-
jor controversies and trends in
Judaism. The will of Elijah of
Vilna expresses the extreme piety
and devotion of the opponents of
Hassidism. These wills often
reflected the ideological and social
group of the authors. I particular-
ly enjoy the advice of Eliezer Ben
Shmuel Halevi of Mainz, in the
14th Century, when he advises his
children to dwell in large Jewish

vice in your will beyond the or-
dinary legal concerns? Recently I
read the words of WLA dated
Jerusalem, 1963 in which he ad-
vises his family not to weep too
long after he is gone and said:
To my wife "Your love has been
to me beyond measure.
Remember what has been and
weep not."
To my children "In material
things I have seen to it that you
will not want. Remember to be
Jews, and the rest will follow
as day follows night. Take care
of one another. Marry within
your faith. Not to please me
but so that you may be happy.
Not because gentiles are in-
ferior they are not but
because marriage is complex
enough without the com-
plicating variables of different
viewpoints. Turn not away
anyone who comes to you for
To my son "Money is only a tool
and not an end in itself. My real
desire is that you will be rich in
heart and soul. Forget not
Israel. You can be a builder of
the homeland for the remnants
of our people. There is no con-
flict between your obligation as
a citizen of our country and
your concern for Israel."
To my daughters "It has always
been the Jewish mother who
has preserved our people. I
shall be content if you follow in
the path of your mother."
To All of You "Let your word
be your bond. Say Kaddish
after me but not for me. Kad-

that binds the generations of

The Paul Greenberg Column
ShcKaransky and The World
Nathan, formerly Anatoly,
Shcharansky was released from a
Soviet prison last week; some,
would say he was set free. But
that might not be altogether ac-
curate. For Anatoly Shcharansky
was never freer than when he was
on a hunger strike at Chistopol
Prison, or in solitary, or refusing
to be released on any terms but
his own. Cut off from the world,
nevertheless he moved it, until
Soviet diplomatists and apologists
everywhere began to cringe even
before hearing his name, which
they inevitably did.
Even before he was shipped off
to Siberia on trumped-up charges,
the man was incorrigible incor-
rigibly free. He was the sort of
dissident who would borrow a
two-kopeck piece from his KGB
tail to phone an American cor-
respondent in Moscow with a
statement. And when he did get to
Israel, he recognized the many
other Soviet dissidents in the
welcoming crowd with the words:
"I am very glad to have an oppor-
tunity to speak to an audience in
which my criminal contacts are
represented so widely."
A funny man, and an earnest
one. He was never freer, or more
eloquent, than when he defied the
Soviet court that sentenced him to
13 years in prison and labor
camps, ending his plea with the
vow: "Next year in Jerusalem!"
This is next year for Anatoly, now
Nathan, Shcharansky. It is always
remarkable how one completely
determined individual can make a
whole tyranny look puny, yet it
keeps happening. Pasternak.
Solzhenitsyn. Sakharov. Now
In releasing him, the new, PR-
minded masters in the Kremlin
are engaging in an old, old hope of
tyrants: Perhaps if they let the
loudest troublemaker go, that will
quiet the rest. But every time they
try it, new voices spring up. It
may take the West a while to hear
them and learn their names, but
they, too, will come to the fore, as
sure as spring, as sure as the Rus-
sian thaw, as sure as the thirst for
human freedom. And behind the
few who dare speak out will be the
many who listen, and whisper,
and grow stronger inside
themselves. Perhaps it is not just
imagination when one senses in
the attitude of Russia's rulers
behind all their medals and
weapons systems and im-
penetrable newspeak a shiver.
Those who look on the surface
of things, those who count votes
at the UN and the number of
tyrannies in the world may see
darkness enveloping the globe.
But beneath the surface,
something is stirring. There is a
rustling, rising sound not unlike
chains being shaken. The same
edition of the paper that carried
the news of Anatoly Shcharan-
sky's homecoming was full of
Paul Greenberg
other stories from around the
In the Philippines, the usual
fraudulence isn't working the way
it once did.
Haitians are suddenly Sans
their current Duvalier and hun-
ting down Tonton Macoutes in-
stead of the other way around.
South Africa's privileged caste
continues to dismantle Apartheid
at a rate that would have been in-
conceivable only a few years ago
but it's still not fast enough.
The Polish junta prudently
decided to drop charges against
Lech Walesa, a quiet decision that
speaks louder than all their talk
about having beaten Solidarity.
For all their armored divisions
in Afghanistan, the Soviets still
cannot extend their sphere out-
side a few cities.
With democracy coming back in
one South American country after
another, Chile's Colonel Pinochet
looks lonely. He grows as isolated
as Nicaragua's Daniel Ortega, the
only head of a Central American
country still in uniform. The dic-
tators in designer glasses,
whether in Cuba or Nicaragua,
look more and more to Russians,
East Germans, and Bulgarians for
support, less and less to their own
The most stable, the most confi-
dent countries are the freest, and
the most fearful are those ruled by
the pharaohs of all stripes.
There is a tide in the affairs of
men and today it is a freedom tide.
That is a sense, a feeling, an arti-
cle of faith rather than any
demonstrable mathematical
hypothesis. But it is getting
harder and harder to deny. It's a
mood and a spirit behind the out-
cropping called the news. The
sense of it is hard to sum up in one
edition of the paper, or one
editorial, or one headline. Though
it might be attempted in a tabloid-
style, 72-point banner in the style
of the New York Daily News:
Freedom Erupts.
People around the world seem
to be vowing: Next year in
freedom! They may say it only to
themselves or out in the open;
they may barely whisper it or they
may shout it in the streets. But
they will be heard. In the words of
that old Negro spiritual, they have
their minds set on freedom. It's as
though Passover, the festival of
freedom, had come early this year
and not just for Anatoly now

Revised Expectations
Tom Friedman, the New York
Times Jerusalem correspondent
and probably the best foreign
correspondent in Israel has
written a landmark piece about
the Middle East peace process.
"No Illusions: Israel Reassesses
Its Chances for Peace" (New York
Times Magazine, Jan. 26) pro-
vides a crash course in the new
realism of the Middle East
Prior to being posted in Israel,
Friedman, like most distant
observers of the Israeli scene,
believed that any solution to the
Arab-Israeli conflict would be ter-
ritorial. Israel would exchange
land the West Bank and Gaza -
for peace.
Now, however, after a few
years in Israel, Friedman sees
that the territorial option is dying
if not dead. In June, Israel will
have been in control of the West
Bank for 19 years, half the life of
the state and exactly as long as
Jordan possessed the territory.
No fence separates pre- and
post-1967 Israel. In fact, many
Israelis have little sense of where
pre-'67 Israel ends and the West
Bank begins. Dotted lines exist
only on maps.
Friedman believes that it is the
experience with Egypt after
Camp David that seriously
dampened Israeli enthusiasm for
dividing the West Bank with Jor-
dan and the Palestinians. Fried-
man quotes one Israeli as saying
that Jerusalem expected peace
with Egypt to be something akin
to the U.S. relationship with its
neighbors. "But with Egypt...
Israelis discovered that the op-
posite of making war was not
making war. And that 'peace' was
the relationship the United States
has with the Soviet Union, not
with Canada."
That has been a rude awakening

and other diaspora Orthodox
leaders would publicly dissociate
themselves from the effort. (JTA)
Deuteronomy XIII Moses is
described as saying: "All this
word which I command you, that
shall ye observe to do; thou shalt
not add thereto, nor diminish
from it." Taking this injunction
literally, the Sadducees and later
the Karaites rejected the rab-
binical development of Judaism as
addition to and modification of the
Mosaic laws. But The Injunction
Could Not Have Meant, For All
Future Time, Without Regard To
Varying Circumstances, That Not
The Least Alteration Or Modifica-
tion Should Be Made In The
Religious And Civil Laws
Established For The People Of
The ancient rabbis claimed
authority; not only to make new
provisions and to establish institu-
tions as a "hedge" for the protec-
tion of the Biblical laws, but under
certain circumstances even to sus-
pend and to abrogate a Biblical
law. They derived this authority
from the passage in Deuteronomy
XVII:8-11, in which mention is
made of the Supreme Court.
The Talmud attests to the con-
tinued existence of such a Court
from the days of Moses to the
destruction of the Jewish State,
and beyond. In the first Century
of the present era, the Synhedrin
in Jerusalem made laws and acted
as a Court of Appeal. It consisted
of 70 members in addition to the
presiding officer, who was
generally the High Priest. In the
smaller Provincial towns there
were smaller Synhedrin, of 23
Questions of law were brought
before this court, and uncondi-
tional obedience to this supreme
authority in all religious, civil, and
criminal matters is emphatically
enjoined in the words .. "Accor-
ding to the law which they shall
teach them, and according to the
judgment which they shall tell
thee, shall thou do; thou shalt not
depart from the word which they
shall tell thee, to the right or to
the left."
Tha Talmud contains the follow-
ing maxims by which the religious
authorities of various periods
were guided in abrogating certain
laws: "The abrogation of a law is
sometimes equivalent to the
maintenance of the law." That is
to set a law aside is sometimes as
meritorious as to establish it. "It
Is Better That A Single Law Be
Uprooted Than The Whole Holy
Torah Forgotten."... "There arc
times when the duty of working
for the glory of G-d requires the
abolition of a law."
Hillel enacted a measure termed
Prosbul which was tantamount to
an abrogation of Biblical law
(Deuteronomy XV:2) concerning
the release from debt in the Sab
batical year (Leviticus XXV). This
law, which was intended to benefit
the poor, proved in the course of
time rather a disadvantage to
them, as no one was willing to
lend money le3t he lose his claim
at the approach of the Sabbatical
year. Hillel, by virtue of authority
as head of the Synhedrin, caused a
law to be enacted by which the
creditor could transfer the debt to
the court in writing, so that the
latter might collect it in spite of
the Sabbatical Year (Mishnah
When the Jews began to enjoy
the blessings of emancipation and
participate in modern cultures the
necessity for abrogating some of
their ancestral laws which were
not compatible with their cir-
cumstances became more and
more apparent.
With due respect, I should like
to remind Rabbi Bernstein that it
was Sinat Hiram groundless
hatred and lack of toleration
among Jews that was to blame
for the destruction of the second
Temple in Jerusalem (Midrash).
IN a secular society,
democratic, pluralistic and non-
ideological like ours, every Jew
could be passionately committed
to their Judaism. This would be a
healthy sign, not a sickness, con-
trary to popular logic. No one
group need accept the actions of
another if this would require a
breach of its own principles.
Love of Israel (Ahavat Israel)
demands, however, that every
group accept the right of the
others to exist even if their
beliefs conflict.
There must always be room for
new groups within Judaism whose
purpose is to further commitment
to Jewish beliefs and the continui-
ty of the Jewish people.
It is possible to conjecture that
Maimonides to a certain degree,
would have justified some steps
taken by progressive movements
in Judaism to insure active par-
ticipation of the greater number
in the life of the community. For
all the discipline he imposed on
himself in the composition of his
works, he was not, in matters of
communal affairs and concern, a
man of doctrinal rigidity. The flex
ibility he showed, also must be
acknowledged as one of the finer
human qualities of his powerful
and original spirit.

Number 9
The tremendous effort on the
part of Prime Minister Shimon
Peres to bring about the start of
formal and public negotiations
between Israel and Jordan
reflects the basic outlook of every
Israeli government since the end
of the Six Day War; namely, that
they key to a political solution to
what is commonly referred to as
the "Palestinian problem" lies
within a peace agreement with the
Kingdom of Jordan.
In my opinion, the time has ar-
rived to reevaluate our foreign
policy and abandon the view that
Hussein is a vital partner to peace
Behind the Israeli efforts for
peace negotiations lie two false
assumptions. The first is that
negotiations should they come
about, could end successfully with
the signing of a comprehensive
political agreement between
Israel and Jordan. Mr. Peres is
aware, on the basis of a realistic
appraisal of the essential positions
of both countries, that this is
merely wishful thinking.
Hussein remains steadfast in his
demand that Israel withdraw
from all of Judea, Samaria and the
Gaza Strip, including Jerusalem.
Nothing less than total withdraw,
such as Israel agreed to grant
Egypt, is an acceptable com-
promise for the Jordanian king.
The assumption that Hussein
w :igree to enter into negotia-
tion without first receiving ex-
plicit guarantees as to their out-
come has, to date, proved to be
The second assumption underly
ing the political effort of Shimon
Peres is that negotiations, to be of
value, need not necessarily lead to
a peace treaty. The very fact that
negotiations are underway is a
moderating force serving to
facilitate political progress and
prevent a deadlock that could lead
to further war and bloodshed. I
am convinced that this assump
tion, too, is without foundation
and ignores the unique realities of
the Middle East.
If such negotiations should
begin, (something I very much
doubt), they are not destined to be

The Hebrew Calendar-
Significance and Accuracy
(The following article, with light
editing, was written by Joseph
Pfeffer in memory of hie late belov-
ed father Meyer Yaakov Koppel
Pfeffer, whose yahrzeit is S Adar
The Hebrew calendar is a con-
fusing, and often unfamiliar thing
to many Jewish people in modern
western society. It becomes a
matter of concern, usually, only
when one has to observe a
yahrzeit, figure out when a child
becomes Bar- or Bat-Mitzvah, or
find out when a major Jewish holi-
day is due to occur.
It is different, of course, to
many Orthodox, observant Jews,
who are also concerned with many
observances linked to the calen-
dar, including certain prayers and
many minor holidays, fast days,
and on a personal basis even
such things as birthdays. Such in-
dividuals are also concerned with
questions of when precisely the
day begins, candlelighting times,
and other related matters which
many non-observant might
dismiss as trivial .
Most of us, living in a non-
Jewish environment, take for
granted the "civil calendar" com-
monly used, failing to realize that,
in fact, it is a Christian calendar.
The Torah, much as it refers to
certain months and "seasons" of
the year, does not relate to a
calendar as such none existed in
Biblical times. The "civil" calen-
dar used today is the Gregorian
calendar, named for one of the
Popes, Gregory XIII of the 16th
Century, who revised the earlier
Julian calendar.
The Christian calendar consists
of days which begin with the zero
hour at Midnight. (The American
Ephemeris and Nautical Almanac,
prior to 1925, reckoned time from
noon, instead of midnight). In ad-
dition, a month must have an in-
tegral number of days (in other
words, so many whole days). That
is a principle of calendar making,
as is the one which says that every
day must begin with the zero hour
at the same time (in other words,
one day cannot begin at midnight,
the next day at some minutes or
hours after midnight, or before
and so on).
The Torah prescribes (Numbers,
XI:20) that each month be counted
in complete days. The day of the
Jewish calendar begins at six
hours before midnight. This
means that Monday, in the
Hebrew calendar, starts at 6 p.m.
on Sunday while in the "civil
calendar" Sunday continues until
midnight. The. new month, in
figuring the Jewish calendar,
begins on the day after the one
during which the new moon is
"born" thus, if the new moon is
born at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, the
New Month (Rosh Hodesh) starts
on Wednesday, which, in effect,
means at 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
However, if the new moon is born
(this is called the Mflad) Oh Tues-
day at 7 p.m., the New Month will
start on Thursday since, in ef-
fect, the Molad occurred on
This is not really confusing, if
one thinks of the time after 6 p.m.
as part of the "next" day. In the
second example, above, the Thurs-
day referred to would really be
starting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday
evening .. This applies to all
months except Tishrei, the first
month and the start of a New
Year, which is subject to other
(I am currently searching the
literature to find the criteria
which were used to select 6 p.m.
as the "zero hour" for the day. I
am of the opinion that it was bas-
ed on the fact that sunset time in
Jerusalem on Rosh Hashana is
around 6 pm. Calculations show
that on the day of Autumnal
Equinox (Sept. 22), when the
length of the night and day are
equal all over the world, the time
of sunset is 6 p.m.)
There can be practical conse-
quences to any confusion arising
from the use of the Hebrew calen-
dar dates in documenting
religious and ritualistic practices.
For example, a marriage
ceremony scheduled for Lag
Ba'Omer. During the period bet-
ween Pessah and Shavuot mar-
riage is prohibited, except on Lag
Ba'Omer (the 18th day in Iyar)
and on Rosh Hodesh. This year,
5746, Lag Ba'Omer occurs on
Tuesday, May 27. However, if one
schedules a wedding for that day,
the marriage contract must be
written and read under the hupa
before 6 p.m. on Monday evening.
Otherwise, the prohibition against
weddings during the Sefirah, the
Omer counting, has been violated.
The accuracy of the calendar is
taken for granted. Hirsch's "Pen-
tateuch and Haftorahs" (Second
Edition, by Soncino Press) in-
cludes a commentary in Exodus
(XII:2) which talks about the
"mathematical exactness of the
calendar." (I took exception to
this commentary and advised the
publishers, who acknowledged my
critique and said they would con-
sider it in a future edition.)
Calendar accuracy is considered
of high level if time adjustments
are included to reflect the precise
length of the year as determined
by the sun's motion. The sun, an

held in an atmosphere of either in-
ternational of regional ease. Even
under optimal conditions. Hussein
would be drawn into a serious con-
flict with the Syrians who would
attempt to undermine his regime
politically and militarily, and
would incite every Palestinian ter-
rorist organization under its in-
fluence. It is also reasonable to
assume that any negotiations
entered into without Arafat's
backing would worsen Hussein's
relations with Arafat's PLO
which, in turn, would be likely to
incite Libya, Iran and other ex-
tremist elements in the Arab
world to take action against, the
In light of the above, can one
seriously delude oneself as to the
chances of holding open-ended
negotiations in a relaxed, quiet at-
mosphere? Or that negotiations
could create an atmosphere of
conciliation? Such negotiations
would, in fact, be held in an un-
precedented atmosphere of tur-
bulence, subject to the pressures
of a deadline and external, as well
as mammoth internal, pressures
on all the participants.
I wish to emphasize the positive
side of Shimon Peres's initiative,
which has considerably improved
Israel's image and aided her in
transferring responsibility for
political progress onto the Arab
countries. From this angle, and
this angle alone, there is indeed
room to praise the prime
minister's steps. The prime
minister can quite correctly claim
that until now Israel has not been
called upon to make any conces-
sions, yet has still succeeded in
creating an impression of will-
ingness to compromise, thereby
casting a shadow upon the PLO's
and Jordan's unyielding and un-
compromising stance.
But the history of Israel has
taught us that the benefits gained
in public relations are usually
short term, and often very much
so. In the case at hand, the prime
minister's public relations, which
are a political asset not to be
derided, cannot remove the
danger that international
pressure on Jordan to enter for-
mal and open negotiations is likely
to push this relatively moderate
regime into extremist Syrian
arms. This process has already
begun, possibly as a result of
Peres' peace initiative. It is a pro-
cess which is also likely to bring
about an escalation of political and
military tension with Syria.
There is an alternative to the
prime minister's approach. But
first of all, we need to publicly
state that the Jordanian option in
its well-known, classic format is
hopeless and, moreover,
undesirable and unlikely to lead to
We need to formulate a new
Jordanian option, based on the
assumption that formal, open
negotiations are a mistake, and
we should instead strive
unilaterally toward the implemen-
tation of autonomy in Judea,
Samaria and Gaza.
Israel is able to take many
unilateral and gradual steps, that
will bring about a continual, infor-
mal and behind-the-scenes process
with Jordan in order to create a
new reality in Judea and Samaria.
The tradition of such contact over
the past 19 years has brought
about quiet and efficient
understanding as reflected in
open bridges, the passage of trade
and tourism, security supervision
against the penetration of ter-
rorists from Jordan into Judea
and Samaria, etc. bearing out
that this approach holds much
greater potential than the formal
Jordanian option based on ter-
ritorial compromise as part of a
comprehensive political
The chances of breaking the
present deadlock in Judea and
Samaria depend on a series of
quiet maneuvers, and a will-
ingness on the part of Israel to in-
crease local authority without
relaxing Israel's security supervi-
sion in these areas.
An integral part of such an ap-
proach which could win tacit Jor-
danian support should it not be a
part of formal, open negotiations
is that Jordan's position in the
territories, in the arena of civilian
government and trade policies be
assured via a format of coordina-
tion already broached in the past,
more than once, between Israeli
and Jordanian representatives.
This approach, known as
"unilateral autonomy," was first
proposed more than five years ago
by the late Moshe Day an, and was
rejected both by the Likud and by
his fellow members of the Labour
Party. Its weakness is that it
holds no glamour and does not
promise the* kind of international
recognition that wins Nobel
Prizes. It means a slow, continual
and cumbersome process. Yet it
appears to me that the frustra-
tions encountered in our ex-
perience with the Israeli-Egyptian
peace treaty justify such a modest
^The writer is a Likud-Herut
The article above was reprinted by
arrangement with the Jerusalem
eternal timekeeper, establishes
the length of the year in its annual
travel from equinox to equinox
(vernal). At present, this tropical
year is 365 days, 5 hours 48
minutes and 46 seconds.
But the Calendar has an in-
tegral number of days where do
the extra 5 hours, 48 minutes and
46 seconds go? The Gregorian
calendar makes the adjustment by
adding one day the leap year's
extra day to each four years.
Since the four years' difference is
still less than the full leap-year
day by 44 minutes and 56 seconds,
this accumulates over the years
until another adjustment is made;
it adds up to 74 hours, 53 minutes
and 20 seconds over 400 years, so
that every 400 years an adjust-
ment of 72 hours is made, or three
days. An additional refinement is
still necessary and would be
made in the year 4000.
The Jewish calendar, which uses
lunar months, makes adjustment
both in the lunar month and the
solar year. The actual length of
the lunar month is 29 days, 12
hours, 44 minutes and 3.3
seconds. Keeping the number of
whole days, the 12-hour portion of
the difference is adjusted for by
alternating between 29-day and
30-day months, starting with 30
days. The remaining 44 minutes
and 3.3 seconds are accounted by
adding a 30th day to Heshvan, the
second month, every three years.
But this extra day results in an
overbalance, which is adjusted for
by reducing Kislev (month 3) by
one day at fixed intervals, from 30
to 29.
In the lunar Jewish calendar, an
entire month in a leap year is add-
ed as it is this year, for example
to adjust for the disparity bet-
ween the 12 lunar months and the
solar year. This difference
amounts to almost 11 days each
year. In a 19-year cycle, there are
seven such leap years, with 13
months, and 12 years with 12
months each. This gives the mean
Jewish year 365 days, 5 hours, 55
minutes and 25.4 seconds 6
minutes and 40 seconds longer
than the solar year. This dif-
ference is not adjusted for in the
Hebrew calendar.
Calculations of the calendar
show variations between the
times of the Molad (moon birth)
and the true moon birth, which
may differ from each other by as
much as 15.5 hours; they fix the
tekufot (seasons), which were in-
tended to coincide with the time
the sun crosses the equator and
with solstice but were
calculated on the basis of the
Julian calendar and inherited in-
correct dating, being about 18
days off. The Molad is important
in fixing the days on which Rosh
Hashana is celebrated (though
that is also governed by a set of
"postponement rules" so that the
holiday would not occur on Sun-
day, Wednesday or Friday). The
Tekufot relate to when the prayer
for rain is instituted the prayer
for "Tal Umatar" is added from
the 60th day in Tekufah Tishrei
until Pessah; also to the time
when the blessing of the sun is
recited, once every 28 years, in
Tekufah Nissan.
The calculations also aid in
observance of the holidays in their
"proper season," as prescribed in
the Torah for example, Pessah
must occur in the month of spring
without the addition of the leap-
year Adar II, it would move ahead
ofthe spring month, into winter.
Still the degree of accuracy is
not enough to ensure that Pessah
will not occur after the spring
month, which starts with equinox
on March 21 and ends April 19. In
approximately half the leap years
having 13 months it occurs past
April 19 as it does this year
(April 25). The gradual "move-
ment" of Pessah will cause it, by
the year 19,600, to be celebrated
entirely in the summer months.
Some scholars have suggested
changing the year's length to 365
days, 5 hours, 48 minutes and 46
seconds corresponding to the
Gregorian calendar. This would
mean replacing the cycle of seven
leap years in every 19 to 123 leap
years in the course of 334 years.
Instead of accumulating one extra
day every 200 years, as now, it
would take 12,500 years to ac-
cumulate the extra day.
Arthur Spier, author of the
100-year Jewish Calendar, deals
with this problem and suggests
that "a new Synhedrin, recogniz-
ed by the whole people of Israel
will be established again in our
time. It will be the task of the
Synhedrin to make a decision as to
when and how the calendar of
Hillel is to be modified in accor-
dance with the requirements of
astronomy and the Torah."

South American Jewry
By coincidence, last month, two
events on the same day in South
County centered on the subject of
South American Jewry. It was not
entirely a coincidence, since the
subject became one of concern in
the context of the community
theme (INTO THE 21ST CEN-
One of the events was a special
program of the Community Rela-
tions Council, chaired by Mrs.
Frances Sacks. Mrs. Sacks, who
always exudes love of people in
general and particularly love of
fellow Jews, introduced Donna
Bentolila de Lopez, a Jewish
psychotherapist from Argentina
who recently moved to the South
County area.
Mrs. de Lopez held the audience
of some 40 representatives from
various Jewish clubs and
organizations sepllbound as, in a
clear and knowledgeable manner,
she described the Jewish com-
munity in Argentina, its problems
and achievements, and its outlook
for the future.
The perspective given by Mrs.
de Lopez, some of it quite per-
sonal, gave an impression that a
large proportion of the Jewish
community is in a process of
assimilation, especially as the
older generation of immigrants
slowly shrinks. Intermarriage,
just like in the U.S., is a problem,
and since Catholicism is the state
religion, the pressure on Jews is
often greater.
A very different point of view
was presented by one of the
world's foremost experts on Latin
American Jewry at the Masada
Dinner, which took place on the
same day. Rabbi Marshall Mayer,
who lived in Argentina for 25
years, was able to point to a great
deal of accomplishment much of
it his own in the field of Jewish
education there. According to
him, although large numbers of
Argentinian Jews went to live in
Israel during the years in which
the Jews of Argentina were in
distress, there are now rabbis who
were educated in the rabbinical
seminary functioning successfully
there are scholarly books being
published; synagogue attendance

has grown immeasurably; and
Judaism thrives in the
Not that there are no problems,
according to Rabbi Mayer. The
Jewish community in Argentina is
still facing difficulties, and has a
tremendous need for linking itself
with Jews in other countries
particularly in the U.S. The
Jewish communities in other coun-
tries of South America are even
more isolated from Jewry
elsewhere, and face greater pro-
blems. Anti-Semitism is sail ram-
pant in many areas but under
such leaders as Alfonsin, a "true
democrat and humanitarian,"
they have far less to worry.
The big problem is not a Jewish
one, Rabbi Mayer emphasized it
is one of U.S. policy which is
sometimes short-sighted. The
U.S. must revise its policy, and
come up with a Marshall Plan for
South America, helping fledgling
democratic regimes economically
Mrs. de Lopez describing life in
so they can stabilize. When the
economic situation is bad, the
Jews tend to be the first to suffer
and to suffer most.
Rabbi Mayer was particularly
excited about the plans to send a
mission of Jewish leaders from
South Florica to visit Jewish com-
munities in South America, saying
this was something he has been
urging for years .. .

Project Renewal,
As It Nears
In the U.S., Project Renewal is
a series of local fund-raising ef-
forts with help from United
Jewish Appeal. In Israel, it is a
series of local problem-solving
programs in 56 neighborhoods.
Because of local factors in
Israel and the U.S. results have
varied, although the project has,
overall, been remarkably
At one end of the spectrum are
15 success stories; 15 Israeli
neighborhoods to be independent
by December of private overseas
Jewish philanthropy (12 by this
spring). These neighborhoods,
across Israel, have job-training,
counseling and placement; early
childhood, remedial and adult
education; health services; new
buildings and supplies; and child-
care, parenting, counseling,
sports and cultural programs
help for everyone. They also have
residents whose former despair
has been changed to optimism,
and who have friendships, with
visitors or pen-pals, from the
sponsoring Jewish community in
the U.S. They include
neighborhoods such as Hatikvah
in Tel Aviv (aided by New York
City area Jews) and Ramat
Eliahu, five miles south (twinned
with Metro-West and North
Jersey Federations). And they all
prove that Project Renewal
In mid-spectrum are 23
neighborhoods such as Yahud,
five miles east of Tel Aviv (linked
to Atlanta's Jewish community),
in which some major needs have
not yet been met, but sufficient
progress is being made.
At the far end of the spectrum
are 18 neighborhoods with
substantial gaps between aid and
need. In some, such as Ramat
Amidar on Tel Aviv's eastern
perimeter (twinned to smaller
New Jersey communities), the
fund-raising challenge has been
simply too much. In others, such
as Ramla, eight miles southeast of
Tel Aviv (linked to Detroit), help
has come but the problems have
proven unexpectedly pervasive or
pugnacious. In still others, help
has been limited because the
paired U.S. Jewish community
has had difficulties awakening its
constituents to the importance of
giving. Progress in all
neighborhoods has been
hampered by the Israel economic
crisis and austerity measures to
rebuild the national economy,
which have hurt every renewal
neighborhood family and
heightened the financial challenge
to American Jews.
Nowhere is the variance bet-
ween success and continuing need
more glaring than in Netanya, 45
minutes up the coast. Famous as a
diamond center, it had two
depressed sections Dora and
Sela. Bergen County, N.J. Jews
have just about finished their role
in Dora. But Louisville and Lex-
ington, Ky. Jews are only a
quarter toward their goal for
nearby Sela.
To help struggling partnerships,
UJA recently voted to encourage
many American Jews to give
beyond the neighborhoods to

1986 Campaign Update
Family Major Gifts Party
Plans Set For March 9
Sid Pearce cannot stay away
from being active in the
He was a member of the South
County Federation's Board of
Directors, and resigned because
of health reasons. But. as Pearce
puts it: "I always have the South
County Jewish Federation close to
my heart. My experience with it
has been thoroughly enjoyable,
and I have met so many wonderful
people .;;
So Sid Pearce is back in
harness. According to Family
Division chairman Benjamin
Bussin, Pearce has agreed to chair
the division's Major Gifts Cocktail
Party, to be held Sunday, March
9, at 4 p.m.
The party will take place at the
home of Rose and Arthur
Lebersfeld in Woodfield Hunt
Club, who have graciously offered
to boat it. The guest speaker will
be Dr. Gerald M. Meister of Bar-
Ilan University.
Sid Pearce, a former vice-
president of Temple Sinai, and
past vice-president and program
chairman of B'nai B'rith of Palm
Greens, has been active in federa-
tion and UJA throughout his adult
life. He retired to Florida in 1977
from Rochester, N.Y., after 25
years with the Bulova Watch Co.,
and has been a Mason for 44
years, attaining the 32nd degree
the highest level in the order of
the Free Masons.
Pearce has been particularly
moved by the Community Theme
adopted this year. "It is moving,
and can only generate growth. It
makes me highly optimistic, and
thankful to be back in action with
the Federation and full of hope
and confidence that we shall have
an outstanding event."
Pearce has a committee of
outstanding members of the
Family Division to help with
organizing the party. They in-

High-Point Area Chairmen
Kick Off '86 Drive
Three leading residents of High
Point, both the east sections 1-7
and the west sections I and II,
have issued a call for their
neighbors to join in working on
the 1986 Federation/UJA
The three are Leo Silk and
Julius Cogen, chairing west sec-
tions I and II, and Charles H.
Moss, chairman of east sections 1
to 7.
Moss, a retired insurance
broekr from Buffalo. N.Y., said he
hopes every High Point resident
will respond to the Community
Theme and get behind this year's
campaign to help implement it. In
particular, he said, he would like
to remind everyone that the need
' to absorb Ethiopian Jews is a
drain on Israel's already inade-
quate resources, and "we must
continue the good work we began
last year in saving these Jews."
Moss is a member of Temple
Sinai, and active in ZOA and
AIPAC. Assisting him in the cam-
paign are Blanche Barnett, Anne
Goldspiel and Mrs. Asher Marder.

Some of the participants in the Seminar on Solicitation
with Jim Nobil and YosefLapid.
Nobil Holds Seminar On
Soliciting for Men's Division
Some of the leaders in the
Men's Division of the South Coun-
ty Jewish Federation were
privileged recently to attend a
seminar on solicitation, led by
Men's Division chairman Jim
Nobil and special guest Yosef
"Tommy" Lapid.
Lapid is a senior editor of the
Israeli daily "Ma'ariv." He was
graduated from the Tel Aviv
University Law School, and has
served with "Ma'ariv" since 1955.
From 1979 to 1984 he was
director-general of the Israel
Broadcasting Authority, which is
responsible for the state-owned
radio and television networks.
A survivor of the Holocaust,
Lapid escaped from Hungary and
came to Israel from Yugoslavia in
1948. He has served as military
correspondent in Israel's various
wars (except Lebanon), and has
served as foreign correspondent
in Great Britain. Winner of
numerous awards in journalism,
he has also written several books.
Jim Nobil and Yosef Lapid
discussed the approach to
charitable giving which campaign
leaders should adopt for
themselves, in order to be able to
effectively take up the subject
with those from whom they solicit
gifts for the campaign. Nobil, who
has served as president of the
Federation in his former home ci-
ty of Akron, Ohio, also discussed
in detail the need to ask, how to
ask, and the basic importance of
being knowledgeable about what
the gifts accomplish. Lapid con-
tributed in-depth information on
what the needs are in Israel, what
role the campaign plays in
meeting these needs, and how the
gifts made in fact make the giver
as much a beneficiary of his act of
tzedaka as the recipient.
Participants in the seminar in-
cluded people from some of the
country club areas, notably Boca
Greens, Del-Aire, St. Andrews,
Woodfield Hunt Club and Town
Place, and the Ocean. The lively
discussion and dialogue which
followed indicated how useful this
seminar was to the participants.
Nobil said more such seminars will
be held in the future.
Bocaire Set For First
Effort, Chaired by Klein
A new area added to the list of
area campaigns for the Men's
Division has been added this year,
with a campaign launched in the
Bocaire Country Club. Chairman
for this area will be Arthur H.
Klein, it was announced by Jim
Nobil, Men's Division chairman.
Klein, who is a part-year resi-
dent of the Boston area, has been
active in the Combined Jewish
Philanthropies of Boston, as well
as in Israel Bonds, from whom he
has received an award, and in
clubs supporting Brandeis Univer-
sity. He has also been a member of
B'nai B'rith, and a board member
of Temple Emeth in Brookline,
Klein, a retired retail business
executive who studied in Harvard,
has set a goal for his first cam-
paign in Bocaire not in a monetary
sum, but in terms of ensuring that
Arthur H. Klein
every man in the area pci..

that no pledge card remains

the Community Theme, with a vi-
sion of a glowing future for South
County's Jewish community, will
be of great help.

Page 10 The Jewish Floridian of South County/Friday, February 28,1986

Our last column discussed the
consequences of a Florida resi-
dent dying without a will.
Although some wiHs are very com-
plex and expensive, most people
do not need a complicated will. It
is also important to note that
many Floridians have wills that
were executed in their former
home states, which might not be
valid under Florida law. This col-
umn will discuss the provisions
that should be contained in a basic
"no frill" will.
First, the will should state that
the person making the will (the
"Testator") resides and is domicil-
ed in the State of Florida. This
will help clear up any confusion as
to where the will should be pro-
bated. In addition, it will help
avoid a dispute with the estate tax
collector from the Testator's
home state. It is important to note
that Florida, for all practical mat-
ters, does not have an estate tax.
Next, the will should appoint a
Personal Representative. The
Personal Representative is
responsible for administering the
estate of the Testator. Usually,
the Testator will choose the sur-
viving spouse as the Personal
Representative. In some cases,
the surviving spouse and the
children of the testator will be ap-
pointed as co-Personal Represen-
tatives. However, in certain cases,
the Testator will choose either an
unrelated friend or advisor or the
trust department of a Bank as his
Personal Representative. This is
often preferable if there are com-
plicating factors involved in the
administration of the estate.
Often, bitter disputes will arise
between the surviving spouse and
children by the Testator's first
marriage if either or both are ap-
pointed as Personal Represen-
tatives. Having an independent
third party serve as Personal
Representative can help prevent
such friction before it can occur. It
is important to note that a Per-
sonal Representative must be a
resident of the State of Florida,
unless he or she is a blood relative
of the Testator (or spouse of a
blood relative). The will should
provide that the Personal
Representative does not have to
put up a bond to insure faithful
service. Such bonds are usually an
unnecessary expense unless the
Testator has doubts as to the
honesty of the Personal Represen-
tative (in which case that person
should not be appointed as Per-
sonal Representative in the first
If the Testator has children that
are minors (i.e., younger than 18
years old), then it is crucial to ap-
point a guardian if the death of
the Testator would leave the
children without a parent. This is
the case in single parent
households or where both parents
die in a common disaster. There
are few disputes that are more bit-
ter than a fight over custody by
grandparents and aunts and
uncles when a child is left without
parents. By providing for a guar-
dian in a will, such a dispute can
be avoided. Such provision should
also provide that the guardian
should not be required to post a
If minor children are left by the
Testator, the will should set up a
trust so that the assets going to
the child do not have to go
through the guardianship process,
which can be very timely and ex-
pensive. Note, however, that the
guardian would still be responsi-
ble for bringing up the child.
Often, the guardian and the
trustee of the trust will be the
same person. If a trust is not set
up, then the child will receive
unrestricted use of the assets
when he or she turns 18. A trust
can extend this to any age that the
Testator feels is more
The part of the will that actually
gives away the assets of the
Testator are called the dispositive
provisions. First, the dispositive
provisions should provide for the
disposition of the Testator's tangi-
ble personal property, such as
automobiles, boats, jewelry,
clothing, art and other personal
belongings. Next, specific cash be-
quests should be made. Often, a
Testator will make a cash bequest
to a charity. Finally, the balance
of the assets, known as the
residuary estate, are disposed of.
Finally, the will must be signed
by the Testator and witnessed by
at least two witnesses. All Florida
wills should be what is referred to
as "self proving." If a will is self
proving, the witnesses do not
have to go to probate court to
testify that they witnessed the
will of the Testator. For a will to
be self proving, it must merely be
signed by the Testator and signed
by witnesses. Next, a notary
public must sign and seal the will,
stating that the Testator and the
witness have signed the will in the
presence of the notary public.
Both the Testator and the
witnesses must once again sign
the will after the notary public has
signed the will. This little
technicality will make it much
easier and cheaper to probate the
will in the future.
A "no frill" will is satisfactory
for most purposes. However, in
the case of larger estates (around
$300,000 and up), if the Testator
has children by a prior marriage
or if the Testator just does not feel
confident about the surviving
spouse's ability to manage the
assets received from the estate, a
more detailed will is in order. Ad-
vanced estate planning can help
resolve these matters and make
certain that the minimum Federal
estate taxes will be paid.

Diaspora Jews Move
Toward 'Greater Autonomy
Multifaceted Research
Jews have played a key role in
the diamond business since the
Middle Ages. The industry's inter-
national nature made it suited to a
widely dispersed people, who
culturally bridged Europe and the
East. In addition, the diamond
trade was not controlled by the
medieval craft guilds, which ex-
cluded Jews, and diamonds were
easy to transport in times of
It is, therefore, not surprising
that today Israel is among the
world's top diamond-polishing
centers and is a leader in develop-
ing new concepts in the field.
More than $1 billion worth of the
polished gems are exported from
Israel each year.
Today the handshake and the
yiddish exchange "mazel and
bracha" (good luck and blessings)
indicate the closing of a deal, just
as they did centuries ago. The
diamonds being sold, however,
may have been prepared using the
most modem of techniques and
technology. In Israel, one driving
force behind bringing technology
to the diamond business has been
Professor Yishaya Yarnitsky,
head of the Stone Technology
Laboratory in the Faculty of
Mechanical Engineering at the
Technion Israel Institute of
Technology, and a former chief
scientist of the Israel Diamond In-
stitute, of which he was a foun-
ding member.
Prof. Yarnitsky's expertise is
acknowledged worldwide. He has
carried out diamond-related
research for such industrial giants
as RCA.
Prof. Yarnitsky has designed
six machines, some of which are
employed today by the world dia-
mond industry. He is currently
designing a state-of-the-art, fully
automatic diamond factory that
will have the capacity to polish
stones of all types and sizes. The
automated plant will employ
robotics, computers, and the
latest in flexible manufacturing-
systems technologies. According
to Yarnitsky, diamantaries will
merely have to choose their rough
diamonds and turn on the elec-
tricity in the morning in this
robot-serviced plant.
"The fully automated plant can
polish any shape of diamond. It
will change the angle for every
facet. For a computer this task is
simple. It may even create new
forms of diamonds."
Kissinger Gets Honorary PhJ).
Former U.S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger was
awarded an honorary Doctor of
Philosophy degree by Tel Aviv
University, in a ceremony during
Dr. Kissinger's recent visit to
Israel, announced Lauren
Azoulai, executive director of the
South Florida office of the
American Friends of Tel Aviv
The degree was conferred by
University president Prof. Moshe
Many, and the rector, Prof.
Yehuda Ben-Shaul.
According to the citation read at
the ceremony, Dr. Kissinger was
honored for distinguished scholar-
ly achievement, for his role in lay-
ing the groundwork for peace bet-
ween Israel and Egypt, and for his
continuing influential and domi-
nant role in world affairs.
Professors Many and Ben-
Shaul, as well as the chairman of
the University's Board of Gover-
nors, Sir Leslie Porter, and
Cabinet Minister Gad Ya'acobi,
praised Dr. Kissinger for his role
as negotiator in the Arab-Israeli
conflict, especially his efforts to
conclude the Israel-Eevpt
agreements following the Yom
Kippur War. Dr. Kissinger
responded that the real honor
belongs to the statesmen of the
Middle East, who had the courage
to act in the cause of peace.
Noting the presence of Egyp-
tian Charge de' Affaires Mohamed
Abdel Aziz Bassiony in the au-
dience, Dr. Kissinger said that the
peace process has made extraor-
dinary advances, even though
much remains to be done. Bas-
siony's presence would have been
"a distant dream a decade ago,"
he said.
Some obstacles still hamper the
continuation of the peace process,
Dr. Kissinger noted, but he
counseled patience. If peace with
Egypt a nation strong and
secure within itself had been a
long time in coming, peace with
the rest of Israel's neighbors
could take even longer, because
they are "countries with more
complex structures that face more
difficult choices." He suggested
that "partial agreements," might
be possible, "if we cannot achieve
all in one set of negotiations."
Among the guests at the
ceremony were Abba Eban, chair-
man of the Knesset Foreign Af-
fairs and Defense Committee;
U.S. Minister-Counsellor Robert
A. Flaten; and Former U.S. Am-
bassador Samuel Lewis.

released from prison as part of the
East-West package deal responsi-
ble for his own release by the
Soviet Union. But the dissident
and aliya activist carefully
distinguished his own movement
from that of Mandela who he
noted has been accused of violence
in his struggle against apartheid.
Appearing at a press conference
here, Sharansky stressed that he
and other Jewish activists in the
USSR were never violent. "Our
only battlefields were small apart-
ments" from which world public
opinion was alerted to the plight
to Soviet Jewry, he said.
He said he believed in principle
that all political prisoners should
be freed. But he did not want
Moscow to mislead the world by
comparing his case and
Mandela's, trying to' imply
thereby that he and his Helsinki
Watch groups were in anyway in-
volved in violent activities such as
the anti-apartheid activist has
been charged with.
Proposals were made to the
South African regime two years
ago that Mandela be released
from prison in return for the
release of Sharansky. The South
Africans rejected this out of hand.
But when Sharansky's release ap-
peared imminent, South African
Prime Minister P.W. Botha said
he would free Mandela if Sharan-
sky and South Africans imprison-
ed in neighboring Angola also
were released.
"I have a feeling that the
American Jewish community is
moving toward more autonomy
from Israel. I hear an old/new
development of 'diasporism'
talk of Jerusalem and 'Babylon.' "
So said Avraham Burg, the
Prime Minister's Advisor on
Diaspora Affairs, at the second
annual B'nai B'rith Mount Scopus
International Leadership Seminar
just concluded at the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem.
The week-long seminar, which
brought together 38 B'nai B'rith
lay and professional leaders
primarily from the U.S. and
Israel, was sponsored by the
Hebrew University, the B'nai
B'rith World Center in Jerusalem,
and the World Zionist
Burg said there is a growing
tendency of Jewish organizations
abroad to engage in world
"Jewish diplomacy." As an exam-
ple he cited the activism of the
World Jewish Congress in talking
with the Soviet authorities on the
fate of Soviet Jewry.
Another example of growing in-
dependence from Israel is the
criticism one hears from diaspora
Jews of some Israeli policies, he
said. Many Jews today feel they
have not only the right but even
the obligation to be involved in
such policies, particularly when
they affect world Jewry, (such as
the "Who is a Jew" issue) said
From the Israeli side, Burg said
that in place of the former
ideological Zionist negation of the
legitimacy of the diaspora, there
is today an Israeli indifference to
the relationship with diaspora
Jewry, a lack of open communica-
tion and dialogue.
Burg decried this, and said that
needed is a deeper involvement
from both sides Israel and the
diaspora with each other.
He added that those in positions
of responsibility in Israel have the
obligation to behave in such a way
so as not to cause harm to Jews
abroad, and that Jews abroad
have the right to tell Israel what
(in their opinion) Israel is doing
wrong and how it might reflect
adversely on them.
Another speaker was Yuval
Elitzur, deputy editor of the
Hebrew newspaper "Ma'ariv' and
correspondent for the "Boston
Globe." Elitzur said Zionism, in
its economic/ideological sense,
had evolved from being based on
the "religion of labor" in which
the highest value was set on
Jewish manual labor in either
agricultural or manual crafts
and has now moved into a stress
on the development of high-
technology export manufacture.
"We are no longer the "nation
of farmers" that the Zionist foun-
ding fathers envisioned, but
rather an industrial nation
fighting to compete in the world's
most sophisticated markets," said
Elitzur. Even the kibbutzim are
engaged, for the most part, in in-
dustrial rather than agricultural
production, he said.
This shift has had ideological
and social as well as economic con-
sequences. Elitzur cited for exam-
ple, the need to build modern in-
dustrial technological plants in
areas where large concentration
of skilled workers reside, rather
than in remote development
This was done in the early days
of the state, in order to provide
employment for the flood of large-
ly unskilled immigrants being set-
tled in those areas. The result is
underemployment in the develop-
ment towns, with all of the
political and social problems that
entails, Elitzur said.
Cutbacks in orders by the
government, as well as upheavals
in world markets, also create pro-
blems in development of Israeli
high-technology industry, Elitzur
pointed out. Israeli companies in
this field must do more to market
and service their products abroad.
In this respect, assistance from
diaspora Jews could be of the ut-
most importance to Israel's

Israeli 'Club' Formed at JCC
A Hanukah party for
Israelis held in December at
the home of a Boca Raton
couple gave the impetus to
organizing an "Israelis'
Club" recently within the
framework of the Adolph
and Rose Levis Jewish Com-
munity Center.
The viability of the idea
proved itself, according to
organizers, when upward of
45 people all Israelis or
former Israelis came to
the party. One of the party
organizers, Leah Temor of
Boca Raton, said she has
compiled a list of more than
60 Israelis, most of whom
would love to have a
framework in which they
can get together with others
who speak Hebrew, join in
singing the same Israeli
songs, celebrate occasions
in Israeli traditions and
share reminiscences.
Leah Temor was recently
nominated to serve on the

board of the Levis JCC, as
chairperson of the Israel

first annonced project was
to organize this Israeli club,
named "Tzavta" (translated
as "togetherness"), and to
plan a Purim Party.
The Purim Party, to be an
optional masquerade party
in the Israeli tradition, will
be held at the JCC on Satur-
day evening, March 22. All
Israelis in the area, or those
who know of Israelis living
in the South County vicinity
either permanently or tem-
porarily, are invited to send
the names in to Leah Temor

information may be mailed

Bonds Tour Committee
Tourism is Israel's biggest pro-
iducer of "hard" currency, and the
Israeli Government has planned a
major tourism campaign in North
America and other markets to
double the number of tourist visits
I to the country.
Israel Bonds is to play a major
[role in implementing this pro-
gram. It is now vitally important
I that people be encouraged to
travel to Israel, and especially to
fly with El Al, Israel's national
airline. It is clear that one of the
major goals of acts of terrorism
against the traveling public in
Europe and the Middle East is to
hurt Israel economically. The
terrorist organizations are
waiting to see Israel suffer from
people's fear, heightened by the
latest spate of attacks on airline
| and ship passengers. They would

the residents of Del-Aire.
Howard Pittman, who has
dedicated his entire life to good
causes from the time his mother
taught him that "even a penny in
the jmxhke..." is important,
feels that a slow, concentrated
educational process succeeds in
the end. "We have so many new
and competitive instruments
available," said Pittman, "that
with wonderful Co-Chairmen like
the Schillers and Weinbergers,
Israel will be the winner!" People
are finding that the differences
between income on the larger
IVRI ($10,000) and VRI ($25,000)
compared with CD's is so negligi-
ble that "those few dollars, while
not changing their lifestyle, will
make a major difference in
Israel's economic independence,"

man, Israel Bond Cabinet. "We
know that most Jews have never
been in Israel, although they
travel and vacation in other
places. It will be our job to do
what we have always done; to br-

We believe this is possible, even in
today's climate of fear. We believe
that we can ask fellow Jews to

Response to the Day School
sponsored "China Explorer's
Cruise" on the Pearl of Scan-
dinavia cruiseline has been over-
whelmingly positive. The Pearl
Cruise Line has generously per-
mitted clients to make a $425 con-
tribution (per person) to the Day
School and deduct that sum from
the total cost of $4485. Members
of the community have found this
an extra incentive for taking this
particular package.
A number of people in South
County have taken this cruise, in-
cluding the Day School chairman,
Arnold Rosenthal, and have en-
couraged others with their rave
reviews. The package includes:
airfare from anywhere in the

modations, three days in the Peo-
ple's Republic of China all shore
excursions and meals, three
nights at the Great Wall Hotel

flag only when the Israeli boar-
ding party arrived. A body found
on deck was identified by crew
members as the captain.
The vessel was escorted to an
Israeli port where a search yielded
neither drugs nor arms or am-
munition. Chief of Staff Gen.
Moshe Levy told reporters that if
no contraband was found, the
vessel would be released. The
crew consisted of Turkish na-
tionals and one Palestinian.

Revised Expectations
Continued from Pag* 4',
for Israelis. Few would trade the
state of "not making war'; with
Egypt for its alternative. Never-
theless, it is not surprising that
in light of that example Israelis
are very skeptical about what
"peace" with Jordan would mean.
And there is an important dif-
ference between Jordan and
Egypt, one that makes an
Egyptian-style settlement with
Jordan even less appealing.
Writes Friedman: "With Egypt,
Israel can afford to have a cold
peace. There is the vast Sinai
Desert separating the two coun-
tries and serving as a buffer bet-
ween armies and peoples. But on
the West Bank there can be no
cold peace; it has to be a peace
based on some kind of real rela-
tions, or nothing at all. The
distances are too small; there will
be no Sinai for both sides to sulk
He adds that few Israelis will
agree to a withdrawal from the
West Bank that does not allow for
continued access to the area. "It is
precisely for this reason that the
negative precedent being set bet-
ween Israel and Egypt is so
dangerous, and why the word
'peace' for most Israelis has to be
re-endowed with some content
and sense of joy before people can
even begin to consider a new in-
itiatve that deals with Jordan and
the West Bank."
But what sort of "new in-
itiative" if territorial compromise
is ruled out? Friedman's answer is
similar to one that Shimon Peres
has been hinting at. In a speech in
London on Jan. 23, Peres said
that if King Hussein does not take
advantage of the chance for peace
"he might awaken one day to the
fact that the territories have been
given self-administration"
without him.
Peres was referring to the con-
cept of "functional autonomy"
an arrangement under which
Israel holds on to the territories
for the foreseeable future but per-
mits the Palestinians to assume all
the aspects of self-rule except the
military. Functional autonomy
was first proposed under Camp
David, but according to Friedman,
it had one major flaw. Under
Camp David, West Bank
autonomy would only have been a
five year transitional phase after
which the territories' final disposi-
tion would have been determined.
This caused some Arabs and
Israelis who "might have ac-
cepted some form of autonomy"
to Mock it "because they did not
want to deal with the ultimate
disposition that was to come at its
conclusion." Friedman favors
"open-ended" automony, under
which West Bank Arabs and
Israelis might slowly work out a
modus mvendi. Then, at some
point, an accommodation satisfac-
tory to both sides could be worked
Friedman would not agree that
functional autonomy is the
ultimate solution. On the con-
trary, he realizes that it would not
satisfy the maximum desires of
either side ." But it would be a
first step. And it would be one in
the right direction. In today's
Middle East even that would be
positively Utopian.
