French Officials That A Mideast Peace
Conference Would Be 'Disastrous'
By EDWIN EYTAN
PARIS (JTA) Israeli
Premier Yitzhak Shamir re-
mained firmly opposed to the
idea of an international con-
ference for Middle East peace
as he energetically sought to
persuade French political and
diplomatic officials last Tues-
day (April 28) that such a
forum would be "disastrous"
for Israel and would endanger
rather than advance prospects
for peace in the region.
Shamir, on the second day of
a three-day official visit, refus-
ed to comment on press
reports that Vice Premier and
Foreign Minister Shimon
Peres had reached a secret
agreement with King Hussein
of Jordan on procedures for an
international conference, to be
followed by direct negotiations
between Israel and Jordan.
"I SHALL not react to this
type of leakages abroad. The
matter is far too serious,"
Shamir told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. But in his
talks with dozens of French of-
ficials during the day he
carefully refrained from per-
sonalizing his dispute with
Peres over an international
conference.
"My personal relations with
Peres are rather good," he
told the newspaper Le Monde.
"(Our divergences) are not a
personal matter but a political
issue. We both have to take
our responsibilities before our
voters," he said.
Shamir told Socialist Party
leader Michel Rochen, Na-
tional Assembly President,
Jacques Chaban-Delmas, and
Senate President Alain Poher,
"You French are traditionally
opposed to the interna-
tionalization of regional con-
flicts. Why do you want to in-
ternationalize the Middle
Eastern regional issue?"
But he has apparently not
succeeded in swaying the
French leaders who generally
favor a peace conference and
the Jordanian option
diplomacy of Peres.
DURING HIS visit here,
Shamir met with Premier Jac-
ques Chirac, President Fran-
cois Mitterrand, Foreign
Minister Bernard Raymond
and Economics Minister
Edouard Balladour. He ad-
dressed a dinner given by the
Jewish community last
Wednesday night and left for
Israel Thursday.
U.S. Closes
Gate to Visit
By Waldheim
By MARGIE OLSTER
NEW YORK (JTA) The
U.S. Justice Department an-
nounced last week a long-
awaited decision to bar
Austrian President Kurt
Waldheim, accused of involve-
ment in Nazi atrocities, from
entry to the United States as a
private citizen.
Although Waldheim has not
been barred from visiting the
U.S. in his official capacity as
the Austrian head of State,
President Reagan pledged in a
letter written last year, that he
would never extend an invita-
tion to Waldheim for an official
visit.
A STATE Department
spokesman said "The Depart-
ment of Justice has determin-
ed that a' prima facie case of
excludability exists with
respect to Kurt Waldheim as
an individual." (see related
story.)

Minister Esmat Abdel-Meguid
read a statement that implied
the Palestinian officials and
their offices must be expelled.
"The Arab Republic of
Egypt has decided to close all
offices of the Palestine Libera-
tion Organization and the
organizations belonging to it
(in Egypt) and will take the
necessary measures related to
this," the Foreign Minister
declared.
ACCORDING to sources
here, there are seven offices of
the PLO and related agencies
in Cairo and Alexandria
covered by the statement.
Egypt's move was in ap-

IDF Unit
Repulses
Terrorist
Break-In
By GIL SEDAN
And HUGH ORGEL
TEL AVIV (JTA) An
Israel Defense Force unit
repulsed a terrorist gang at-
tempting to infiltrate the
south Lebanon security zone
last Thursday. The clash took
place near Bint Jabil village.
There were no IDF casualties
but blood stains on the ground
indicated one or more of the in-
filtrators was wounded.
Personal weapons, sabotage
equipment and shoulder-fired
missiles were found near the
scene.
Earlier last Thursday,
Israeli helicopter gunships at-
tacked terrorist targets south
of Sidon in south Lebanon. An
IDF spokesman said buildings
that served as terrorist head-
quarters for planning and
launching attacks on Israel
were hit.
FOLLOWING THE attack,
Israel Air Force jets dropped
leaflets over south Lebanon
warning the local population
that cooperation with ter-
rorists would bring "harsh
measures" by the IDF.
Katyusha rockets have been
fired into Galilee from south
Lebanon last week. A terrorist
gang that infiltrated Israel
recently and killed two IDF
soldiers from ambush is believ-
ed to have found shelter in
local villages before they
breached the border fence.
Meanwhile, Israel has
reportedly warned Syria and
the Lebanese Shiite militia.
Amal, that it would not
tolerate terrorist attacks from
Lebanese territory. Military
sources have noted that since
the Syrian army occupied
Moslem west Beirut in March
and deployed elements
southward, Amal has directly
attacked IDF units in the
south Lebanon security zone.
Previously its targets were
limited to the Israel-backed
South Lebanon Army (SLA),
the main force in the security
zone.
ISRAEL WARNED it
would hold Amal responsible
for attacks on the IDF but
does not consider Amal an
enemy and will try to improve
relations with the local Shiite
population.
The most serious clash in the
security zone involved the
Iran-backed extremist Shiite
movement Hezbullah which
mounted a large-scale attack
in the zone last month. It was

Bat Mitzvah
Monument
Vandalized
LONDON (JTA) A monu-
ment to Holocaust victims in
Hyde Park was vandalized
over the weekend. Members of
the Jewish community gather-
ing for the annual com-
memoration service
discovered Sunday that white
paint had been poured over the
granite block set in a grove of
trees.
The vandals left a placard
with the word "Perdition."
That was the title of a play
alleging that Zionists col-
laborated with the Nazis dur-
ing World War II. Its schedul-
ed opening at the Royal Court
Theater in London's West End
last month was cancelled after
historians branded it a traves-
ty and the Jewish community
protested.
Memorial services were con-
ducted at the monument Sun-
day.

B'NAI B'RITH WOMEN
Beverly Davis of Palm
Beach, immediate past presi-
dent of B'nai B'rith Women,
was named Secretary-
Treasurer of the Leadership
Conference of National Jewish
Women's Organizations today,
during the group's conference
on issues of women and work.
Ms. Davis' appointment to
the organization, which
represents more than 2 million
Jewish women, follows a
distinguished career devoted
to the concerns of Jewish
women. During her two years
as international president of
B'nai B'rith Women, Ms.
Davis launched new programs
on stereotyping of Jewish
women and on women in the
work place, conducted a
statistical study on the beliefs
and attitudes of Jewish and
non-Jewish women and launch-
ed a number of new career
chapters for working women.
Ms. Davis was a delegate to
the United Nations Con-
ference on Women in Nairobi
in 1985. After returning from
the conference, she led BBW
in a campaign for United
States ratification of the UN
Treaty to Eliminate
Discrimination Against
Women.
New York Governor Mario
Cuomo appointed Ms. Davis to
the State Commission on
Domestic Violence. She was
honored as "Woman of
Achievement" by the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, and as "Woman of the
Year" by Jamaica, Queens, for
her many contributions to the
community. The State of
Israel honored Ms. Davis with
its "Shalom Award" for her
sale of Israel Bonds.
Today's day-long conference
on women and work explored
strategies for community ac-
tion on three issues of concern:
parental leave, pension
reform, and pay equity.
After 36 years of outstan-
ding service to B'nai B'rith
Women, Ms. Davis now serves
as the counselor of the
120,000-member organization
which unites Jewish women to
promote social advancement
through education, service and
action.

Arafat: Miracle Man
Of Many Resurrections
Yasir Arafat is a man with an unbelievable
number of resurrections in the life of his
political fortunes. He pulled another one of
these rather remarkable occurrences in
Algiers last week. There, faced with the pro-
spect of disparate elements of his Palestine
Liberation Organization in disarray, and op-
posed to renewing his role as Chief, Arafat
managed to draw them together and to re-
main as their leader.
There is much that is breathtaking in this
because of the fate he suffered at the hands
of the Israelis in Lebanon in the 1982 war.
Defeated and drummed out of Beirut,
Arafat managed to reestablish himself in
Tripoli on a ticket of safe voyage there
guaranteed by the United States and
France.
His attempt at regrouping in Tripoli hav-
ing failed, he left Lebanon for Tunisia, this
time under the protective umbrella of the
French, who seemed especially worried that
Israel not hamper his departure or set a slur
upon his dignity.
Since then, Arafat has done a brilliant job
of infiltrating Lebanon anew of course,
with the aid of the Lebanese themselves,
who are dead set on committing national
suicide. Ditto, the Syrians, who most recent-
ly have occupied Beirut "for its own good."
Mubarak Offended
So much for Arafat's fabulous success
story. Now, for his failures. In 1985, he
came to an understanding with Jordan's
King Hussein about a new Palestinian state
and an accommodation with the Palestinians
which Hussein wanted, and still wants,
before acceding to peace talks with Israel
under the protective umbrella of an interna-
tional conference, including China and the
Soviet Union.
The King does not, after all, want to suffer
the fate of Egypt's President Sadat who
established peace with Israel unilaterally
and was assassinated for his troubles.
But at the Algiers conference, Arafat
could not stop the PLO's George Habash
types, or the shadow of Abu Nidal, from
castigating Egypt for its peace accord with
Israel. Nor did Arafat see anything wrong
with trashing his 1985 accommodation with
Hussein as a sabre-rattling act supreme.
It is for these reasons that Egypt's Presi-
dent Mubarak Monday moved against the
Palestine Liberation Organization's offices
in that country with vengeance in mind for
the offense to Egypt's own dignity.
Mubarak clearly has enough problems sus-
taining the Camp David peace treaty with
Israel without having to hear the PLO's
highest echelons chatter away about the
"necessity" of Egypt's scrapping the treaty.
Where does this leave things?
Unity Gov't. Folly
It leaves countries like the United States
and France no wiser about how to deal with
the Arabs than they were in 1982 or, in-
deed, in 1947. It ought to leave Israel a bit
more relieved than it was last week at the
prospect of a Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion renewed in Algiers.
But it also does little to resolve the Israeli
political dilemma at home, where Prime
Minister Yitzhak Shamir remains at odds
with Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, who
seems to be spoiling for a new election and
the opportunity to pursue his own Middle
East peace agenda once, as he believes, he
wins the prime ministership. single-
handedly.
The question is whether Shamir and Peres
as keepers of the Unity Government can
maintain an even keel and agree on means of
bringing King Hussein and Jordan into a
peace arrangement with Egypt as shadchan,
circumventing the great magician at resur-
rections, Yasir Arafat, who shot himself in
the foot in Algiers with vows to establish a
new Palestine whose capital will be
Jerusalem.
This would be a dream devoutly to be con-
summated as Israel gets set to celebrate its
39th Independence Day this Monday, May 4.
Rather than to tear the country apart with
threats of new elections if not elections
themselves the Unity Government must
make certain that it exploits to the max-
imum the opportunity for peace with Jordan
that Arafat presented to the world in
Algiers and that Egypt tied with ribbons
and bows in its angry expulsion Monday of
PLO offices and officials from that country.
For the fact is that Peres would not win
singlehandedly in a new election. Nor would
Shamir. The Unity Government would be
best advised to move forward as it is
presently constituted and to take advantage
of President Mubarak's latest Arafat-
weakening move.
Protect Press, Court Orders
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
Supreme Court has issued a
landmark decision upholding
the right of journalists to pro-
tect their sources of informa-
tion, except in the most serious
cases of wrong-doing.
Supreme Court President
Justice Meir Shamgar ruled
that a journalist must reveal
his sources only if a crime car-
rying a five-year maximum
sentence or a lesser crime with
grave consequences, was in-
volved. He said in the case of a
serious civil crime, disclosure
would be required only if it
was essential in the interests
of justice.

Justice Dep 't.
Slams Gate to Waldheim Visit
Friday, May 8, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 5
Jefferson National Bank
To Open In Boca Raton
Continued' from Pajre 1
will never legally enter this
country again. Jewish
organizations praised attorney
General Edwin Meese and the
Justice Department for taking
the appropriate action in the
Waldheim case.
THE WORLD Jewish Con
gress, which discovered and
exposed the first documenta-
tion of Waldheim's wartime
activities which he concealed
for four decades, issued a
statement saying: "The At-
torney General of the United
States of America, Edwin
Meese, has acted in a
courageous manner and has
sent a clear messsage: Nazis
are not welcome here. After 40
years, justice has been done in
the case of Kurt Weldheim."
Waldheim's past came to
public attention in spring 1986
after a World Jewish congress
researcher discovered that a
file in the United Nations War
Crimes Commission (UNWCC)
archive charged Waldheim
with "murder" and "putting
hostages to death." The
documents showed that
Waldheim served as an in-
telligence officer in the Ger-
man Army and committed
atrocities in Yugoslavia and
Greece by ordering the murder
of Jews, Gypsies, Serbs and
resistance fighters.
Waldheim has admitted that
he concealed part of his war-
time service by claiming
repeatedly that he was
discharged in 1941 and finish-
ed a law degree in Vienna for
the remainder of the war. But
he has denied that he
perpetrated any Nazi
persecutions.
"TODAY the U.S. govern-
ment formally determined that
Kurt Waldheim falls under the
'Holtzman Amendment' which
holds that 'Nazi persecutors'
are ineligible to enter the
United States," the WJC
statement said. Elizabeth
Holtzman, Brooklyn District
Attorney, authored legislation
barring Nazi war criminals
from entering the U.S. when
she served in Congress.
Holtzman issued the follow-
ing statement Monday: "To-
day Kurt Waldheim's past has
finally caught up with him. I
am pleased that Attorney
General Edwin Meese has
agreed to bar Kurt Waldheim
from the United States, enfor-
cing the law that I wrote that
bars Nazi persecutors from
our shores. Waldheim par-
ticipated in the German
Army's reprisals against inno-
cent civilians during World
War II and has consistently
tried to cover up his past.
Under the Holtzman amend-
ment, such a person cannot
enter this country.
"The next step is to deter-
mine how a man with
Waldheim's past was sup-
ported by our own government
and many others while he was
Secretary General of the UN.
The opening of Waldheim's
secret UN file exposed his past
to the world. The United
States government must
reverse its position on releas-
ing the 37,000 other files on ac-
cused Nazi war criminals."
THE WJC statement prais-
ed the Justice Department's
Office of Special Investiga-
tions (OSI) for acting "in a
manner befitting its role as the
moral conscience of this
government." The OSI
prepared a 200-page report
supporting the case to bar
Waldheim from the U.S.
"It is particularly fitting in
this week set aside for com-
memoration of the victims of
the Holocaust, that the final
legal judgement has been
rendered in the case of Kurt
Waldheim," the WJC state-
ment said.
In other reactions from the
Jewish community, Morris
Abram, chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions, said "The Attorney
General's action demonstrates
the determination of this
government to see to it that
the Holocaust is remembered
as it must be for all time. It
also shows that the watch-list
policy is administered without
regard to rank or station."
Shavuot: An Explanation for
Jews and Christians
The Jewish holiday called
Shavuot (pronounced Sha-voo-
ote) is one of three Pilgrim
Festivals mentioned in the
Bible.
The other two are Passover
(Hebrew: Pay-sach) and Taber-
nacles, or Booths (Su-kot).
Originally nature festivals,
these three holidays marked
important milestones in the
agricultural year. Passover
was at first the plea to God to
make the Spring harvest a
good one; later it became the
time to observe the
deliverance from Egyptian
slavery. Sukkot started as a
time to mark the beginning of
the autumn harvest and was
later identified with the pro-
tection God granted the
Israelites as for 40 years in the
desert, they lived in Sukkot
(tents or booths).
Shavuot means in Hebrew,
Weeks, and is the festival
which takes place seven weeks
after Passover, the time of the
Spring planting. Those 49 days
are the length of time needed
for the appearance of the first
results of the planting. For
this reason Weeks is also call-
ed the Festival of the First
Fruits. In ancient times, stalks
of grain were brought to the
temple in Jerusalem and there
thanks were offered up to God
for His part in producing the
food we eat. That is the origin
of the idea of pilgrimages, of
trips to a holy place. As in-
dicated, these visits to the
shrine also took place on
Passover and Sukkot.
Because of the 50-day period
between the holidays, the
climax of this span is called not
only Shavuot (Weeks) but
Pentecost (related to 50).
That 50-day stretch later
took on new significance with
respect to the happenings to
the Israelites after the Exodus
from Egypt. According to
tradition, those seven weeks in
the desert were used by Moses
to provide moral training to
the former slaves, and this
course in ethics reached a
"high point" 50 days after the
Exodus on Mt. Sinai where the
Ten Commandments were
given. Shavuot, therefore, has
come to be known as the Birth-
day of the Ten Command-
ments, and one of its Hebrew
names, in fact, is the Time of
Giving of the Moral Law.
The holiday was celebrated
for one day in Biblical times.
Traditionalist Jews added
another day to its observance
for complex calendar reasons.
Reform Jews have reverted to
the original one-day pattern.
In Israel, too, it is a one-day
event.
But Reform Judaism utilized
Shavuot for another purpose.
Desirous of an occasion for a
ceremony marking the comple-
tion of the elementary period
of religious education, Reform
Judaism combined their
celebration of Shavuot with an
opportunity for teenagers to
assert their willingness to
adhere to Jewish precepts. At
the first Shavuot, near Mt.
Sinai, the people affirmed
their willingness to live by
divine principles. On each
subsequent Shavuot, young
people ratify that decision;
hence the ceremony is called
Confirmation.
There are many practices
associated with the 50-day
period between Passover and
Pentecost. For one thing it is a
period of extra devotion and
abstention from undue revelry
(like Lent, which is patterned
after it). The seven-week span
is called in Hebrew, Sefirah
(s'feer'ah), which means Coun-
ting (count up, not count
down) or Omer, which is
Hebrew for the stalk of barley
which is gestating during that
time. The somberness of the
period was broken on the 33rd
day because, according to
legend, the disciples of the
great Talmudist, Akiba, ceas-
ed to suffer from an epidemic
on that day; so it because a
half-festival, Lag B'Omer (the
33rd day during the Omer).
In Hebrew, first fruits is
Bikkurim, as the holiday is
sometimes called. Some refer
to it as Chag (Festival of) Bik-
kurim. Confirmation is now
prevalent not only among
Reform Jews, but also among
Conservative and Orthodox
Jews as well.
Confirmation is to be
distinguished from Bar Mitz-
vah (for boys), or Bas Mitzvah
(for girls). Bar Mitvah means
Son of the Commandment, or
Master of the Commandment,
and refers to the ability of a

DAY OF ATONEMENT
After the death of Nadab
and Abihu, Aaron was given a
strict warning to enter the Ho-
ly of Holies once a year only,
on the tenth day of the seventh
month (Tishri). On this day
atonement was made for the
sins of the community, in-
cluding the priesthood, and the
Sanctuary was cleansed from
defilement lest it had been
entered by Israelites, who
were ritually unclean. Among
the sacred ceremonies were
the following: the High Priest
himself, attired for the most
part in his white linen
garments (instead of his usual
ornate apparel), offered all the
sacrifices. These consisted of
his personal sin and burnt of-
ferings (provided at his own
cost) and similar communal of-
ferings brought on behalf of
the people. As part of the re-
quired ritual, Aaron, having
filled a censer with burning
coals from the brazen altar,
gathered a handful of incense,
and entered the Holy of
Holies. He then threw the in-
cense upon the coal and the
cover of the Ark was
enveloped in a cloud of smoke.
Two he-goats had been pro-
vided by the people for their
sin-offering, and the High
Priest cast lots to determine
which was to be sacrificed. He
laid his hand on the head of the
other animal, over which he
confessed all the sins of the
people, and it was then set
loose in the wilderness sym-
bolizing the removal of sin and
guilt from the community.
Finally, having resumed his
distinctive garments, Aaron
offered his own burnt-offering
and the burnt-offering of the
people.
The commandment was
given for the anniversary of
the day to be observed per-
manently as a most solemn
Sabbath when every member
of the house of Israel was to af-
flict himself (by fasting), and
the ceremonies described
above were to be carried out
by the High Priest in office.
PLACE OF SACRIFICE
The people were again cau-
tioned that sacrifices could be
offered only on the altar in the
Sanctuary. If they desired to
slaughter an animal for con-
sumption it was to be brought
as a peace-offering, the only
sacrifice of which the offerer
was permitted to partake. To
offer sacrifices indiscriminate-
ly, as in the open field, was an
act of idolatry. Furthermore,
the eating of blood and con-
suming the flesh of an animal
which died a natural death, or
was mauled by a wild beast,
were prohibited.
PERSONAL CHASTITY
In the Divine legislation
dealing with the sin of immoral
behavior the phrase I am the
L-rd your G-d is repeated a
number of times to serve as a
constant reminder that His
people were to maintain a high
standard of purity and
holiness. They were not to be
influenced by the immoral
practices in Egypt which they
had left nor practice the
abominations of Canaan where
they were to settle. The forbid-
den degrees of marriage listed
in this section transgress the
law of G-d and are particularly
unnatural and repellent.
Adultery and other sins are
likewise condemned. Other na-
tions were destroyed because
they defiled themselves by
such loathsome conduct-a
similar treatment would be
as the mixed breeding of cat-
tle, sowing a vineyard with
two kinds of seed, and weaving
a garment of mingled kinds of
material (wool and linen) are
meted out to Israel if they did prohibited (for they offend the
the same.
(Ye shall be holy, for I the L-
rd your G-d am holy. This
guiding principle introduces
the ethical and ceremonial
laws contained in this Sidra. In
many ways they correspond to
the Ten Commandments, and
deal with the duties of man
towards G-d and his neighbor).
They include the following:
BETWEEN MAN AND G-D
The first precepts emphasize
the duty of showing respect to
parents, observing the Sab-
bath day, and the condemna-
tion of idol worship. The
repulsive heathen custom of
child sacrifice to Molech, g-d of
the Ammonites, and the prac-
tice of witchcraft in any form
are punishable by death. For-
bidden also are the heathen
mourning rites of mutilating
or tattooing parts of the body.
Unnatural combinations such
Divine laws of nature). The
fruit of a tree during the first
three years after its planting
may not be eaten, for only in
the fourth year is it considered
sufficiently mature to be
brought as first fruits to G-d.
MAN AND HIS
NEIGHBOR
Special consideration must
be shown to the poor and the
stranger for ye were strangers
in the land of Egypt. The
farmer, therefore, should not
entirely reap the corners of his
field and leave the gleanings of
the harvest and the vineyard
for them. Dealings with one's
fellow man must be based on
justice and truth-stealing,
defrauding, uttering
falsehoods and slander are
grave sins.
The employer should pay his
workman s wages promptly;
the shopkeeper must display
honestly by ensuring that his
weights and measures are cor-
rect; and a judge should show
impartiality towards poor and
rich alike. Defaming the deaf
who cannot hear and is
therefore unable to defend
himself, or playing a trick so as
to mislead a blind man, are
acts of cruelty. When our
neighbor's life is in danger
everything should be done to
save him. It is wrong to hate
one's fellow man or wreak
vengeance on him, for thou
shalt love thy neighbor as
thyself. The abhorent sins of
adultery, incest, unnatural
vice and bestiality, are to be
severely punished.
In conclusion the people
were reminded that the
heathen nations were
destroyed because they prac-
ticed such abominations-Israel
would suffer the same fate
unless they observed all G-d's
statutes and judgments.

THE PENALTY FOR
INIQUITY
The Children of Israel,
declares the prophet, share
G-d's Providence with other
nations and have no claim to be
treated differently bv escaping
punishment for their crimes.
The overthrow of the Nor-
thern Kingdom followed by ex-
ile and the destruction of the
sinners will be the inevitable
consequence of iniquitous con-
duct. Nevertheless the day of
Redemption will come when
Israel will return to their
Land, rebuild their cities and
enjoy prosperity.

elders who come to him to in-
quire of G-d's intentions regar-
ding the ultimate fate of
Judea. Ezekiel is aware of
their idolatrous tendencies and
warns them of the punishment
for disobeying G-d's Laws. The
generation of the wilderness,
he recalls, had not been allow-
ed to enter the Promised Land
because they rejected the
Divine statutes and worship-
ped idols. The younger genera-
tion had been cautioned to re-
ject their fathers' apostasy and
to walk in the ways of G-d.

Publix
Sponsor Of 'The Rotation Diet'
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Dr. Martin Katahn, author
of "The Rotation Diet," which
has been on the New York
Times Bestseller list for 46
weeks, is coming to South
Florida to start a weight loss
movement that hundreds of
thousands of Americans across
the country have already
begun.
Publix supermarkets is spon-
soring what might be the big-
gest weight loss community
campaign in diet history.
Katahn, whose book was
released in paperback last
month, will be visiting various
Publix supermarkets in this
area May 11 and 12.
THE PROGRAM officially
began April 23, with a volun-
tary weigh-in at any Publix in
Dade, Broward and Palm
Beach Counties. Each week,
participants will receive free
brochures that outline exactly
what has to be done.
In an interview with The
Jewish Floridian, Katahn
discussed some of the prin-
ciples of his popular diet. The
first person he will tell you
tried the diet was himself.
"I'm a former fat man who's
kept 75 pounds off for 24
years," said Katahn, who
elude tomatoes, broccoli, car-
rots, cauliflower, green beans,
onions, summer squash and
mushrooms.
THERE ARE also fruits
that are considered "safe."
When you need a lift, feel
unbearably hungry or are
tempted to stray from the diet
for any reason, try an apple,
melon, pineapple, berries,
orange, tangerine, grapefruit,
peach or other fresh fruit in
season.
Katahn spent over two
600 calories a day, four days at
900 calories and then a week at
1,200 calories. The third week
repeats the first. Men use rota-
tions of 1,200, 1,500 and 1,800
calories.
The Rotation Diet program
will offer participants daily
menus for quick weight loss
and maintenance, guidelines
for physical activity, motiva-
tional tips and answers to the
questions most frequently ask-
ed about the diet, recipes to il-
lustrate healthy, low fat cook-
decades refining his diet plan, in% *nd. advice on eating out
which he first began develop- ^ dealing with various pro-
mg in 1963. In 1986, some
76,000 people in Nashville
went on the diet. Katahn has
been a professor of psychology
for 25 years at Vanderbilt
University in Nashville, Tenn.,
where he also directs the
Vanderbilt Weight Manage-
ment Program.
He received the PhD degree
in psychology from Syracuse
University but began his later
education studying violin at
the Juilliard School of Music.
Katahn has also written a
cookbook to accompany his
diet plan. He is in the midst of
an international tour, and his
book has been translated into
Swedish, Danish, German,
French, Italian, Spanish, Por-
formerly weighed 230 pounds, tuguese, Hebrew, and it is go-
'I was a fat kid, grew up fat
too. I had one of those Jewish
mothers who had me clean my
plate because of all the starv-
ing kids in Armenia, and then
in the next breath she would
tell me I was too fat and had to
go on a diet."
HE HAD a heart attack
when he was 35 years old.
Katahn, who is now 59, also
had high blood pressure. He
knew it was weight-related
because he said the minute he
lost weight and became active,
his blood pressure became
normal.
Katahn shies away from at-
tacking other diets publicly by
name, but he said certain diets
are excellent, but they don't
motivate people. Katahn says
his diet is "almost as fast as
starvation except, it doesn't
slow the metabolic rate.
There is a hitch to following
his diet: it goes part and parcel
with getting exercise in any
number of ways.
He urges people to get a bud-
dy and others to diet with
them.
"Don't be one person
against the world," he says.
ANOTHER TIP is not to
fight mother nature. Don't try
putting ice cream before you.
You won't win, he says. People
are supposed to be comfortable
on his diet and to achieve that
comfort.
Katahn suggests a list of
several "safe" vegetables that
one can eat as he or she
pleases. They include:
asparagus, cabbage, escarole,
radishes, zucchini, celery,
cucumbers, lettuce, spinach
(raw), chicory, endive, parsley,
watercress, all of which con-
tain vitamins, minerals, and
beneficial amounts of fiber,
with fewer th#n 10 calories per
half-cup serving.
There ?re e,ren some
vegetables you can "cheat"
with; they are about 25
calories per half-cup and in-
mg to be published in the
Republic of China.
THE ROTATION Diet is
not new to Publix. In 1986, the
supermarket chain met suc-
cess when it sponsored the diet
in its Lakeland and Jackson-
ville divisions, which encom-
passes all of Florida excluding
the southeast counties. More
than 75,000 dieters registered
at Publix and recorded a
weight loss of more than
188,000 pounds.
The brochures that will be
available at Publix will include
one for each of nine weeks in
the program.
A sample from Week One is
a welcome to the Rotation
Diet. And it tells you, "This is
going to be the most successful
diet you have ever under-
taken," and assures the dieter
that, if successfully followed,
the plan can "put an end to a
lifetime of dieting."
IT ALSO tells you what you
can expect on the diet, which
includes plans for men as well
as women in fact urging
couples to diet together.
Here's one important statistic:
"The average weight loss on
this diet is 2/3rds of a pound a
day for 21 days.
At the end of three weeks
you must take a short vacation
from dieting, and, if you have
more weight to lose, you can
repeat the 21-day diet.
The weight loss will also
have an additional benefit.
Publix Super Markets have
pledged to donate two cents to
the American Cancer Society
for every pound that is lost
during Publix's Rotation Diet
Promotion that will run in
Southeast Florida through
June 25.
THE ROTATION Diet
alternates low-, medium- and
high-calorie days over a three-
week period and includes daily
exercise the equivalent of
walking 45 minutes a day.
Women spend three days at
blem situations that may lead
you to overeat.
IN RED LETTERS on the
pamphlets is a warning that no
one should undertake this or
any other weight loss diet
without the advice of his or her
physician. It also stresses that
the Rotation Diet is not for
everyone.
Here is a sample menu for
women taken from his
book:?EP
Week One:
1
Breakfast: xh grapefruit; one
slice of whole-wheat bread and
one slice cheese, no-cal

Cairo Boots 7 PLO
Offices from Egypt
Continued from Page 1-
count the decisions of the 16th
session of the PNC held in
Algiers in 1983. At that time,
delegates condemned the 1978
Camp David accords
establishing peace between
Egypt and Israel.
They also called upon the
PLO leadership to encourage
Egyptian opposition groups
and "popular forces" to de-
mand that the Camp David ac-
cord be abrogated.
THE EGYPTIAN order
Monday stopped short of a for-
mal break in relations that
President Mubarak threatened
if the PNC resolution on Egypt
contained any reference to the
decisions adopted at the 16th
Poll Says New Elections
Would Bring Same Stalemate
TEL AVIV (JTA) If
Knesset elections were held
now, the outcome almost cer-
tainly would be a new version
of the present stalemated na-
tional unity coalition, accor-
ding to the latest opinion poll
published in Maariv Tuesday.
The poll, conducted last month
among 1,236 adult Jewish
voters by the Modiin Ezrachi
organization, found that
neither Labor nor Likud would
be able to form a governing
coalition with their respective
leftwing or rightwing allies.
Labor, however, would
emerge stronger than Likud
with 48 Knesset seats com-
Ced to the 40 it won in the
elections in 1984. Likud
was down from 41 seats to 35
in new elections.
BUT NEITHER PARTY
would be able to put together a
governing majority in the
120-member Knesset because
the rightwing opposition par-
ties have gained ground since
1984, possibly at Likud's ex-
pense, and the leftist parties
which might align with Labor
have lost support
The ultra-nationalist Tehiya
Party would increase its
Knesset strength from five to
seven seats in new elections.
Rabbi Meir Kahane's ex-
tremist Kach Party would go
from one to four seats. The
poll showed the leftist Shinui
down from three to two seats
and Mapam reduced from six
to two.
Among the Orthodox fac-
tions, only the National
Religious Party gained sup-
port. It would win six seats
compared to its present four.
council meeting.
It is understood that PLO
chief Yasir Arafat had tried to
persuade the Council to ex-
clude the indirect condemna-
tion of Egypt, and PLO of-
ficials here were surprised at
Egypt's move against them.
PNC officials in general have
said that Egypt
"overreacted."
But one Egyptian official in
the Foreign Ministry said that
Arafat's position at the
Algiers conference showed
"insolence and ingratitude"
toward Egypt which has been
a staunch supporter of the
PLO and a firm supporter of
the need to include the Palesti-
nians in the Middle East peace
process.
"We are fed up with the
deceits," the official said. "We
understand he (Arafat) was
under pressure to accept this
resolution. But we will not be
taken for granted."
ABDEL-MEGUID said that
"It was imperative that Egypt
should put an end to this lowly
behavior and confront this ir-
responsible position with the
firmness dictated by the
supreme national interest and
by the necessity of preserving
Egypt's dignity."
He emphasized Egypt's role
in trying to improve the image
of the PLO with the United
States and Israel. The break
marks the most severe crisis
between Egypt and the PLO
since Arafat resumed relations
with Cairo in late 1983, some
five years after the launching
of the Camp David peace
accord.

LAWS RELATING TO
PRIESTS
Because of his privileged
status the priest had to main-
tain a high standard of purity
and perfection. As contact
with the dead defiled him and
would for a time prevent him.
from carrying out his duties,
he was forbidden to attend the
funeral rites of anyone save his
nearest relatives, namely his
wife, parents, children,
brother and unmarried sister;
nor could he marry an un-
chaste or divorced woman.
Even more rigid rules applied
to the High Priest who was not
to defile himself even when his
own next of kin died and could
marry only a virign. Any
physical defect disqualified the
priest from officiating at the
altar, though he was entitled
to receive his share of the
sacrificial dues. Sacred food
could not be eaten by the
priest and the members of the
family during a period of per-
sonal uncleanness (such as
leprosy, or after contact with
anything unclean).
Sacrifices too had to be
perfect, without blemish. An
animal was not to be sacrificed
before it was (mature enough
at) eight days old, nor (on
humane grounds) could the
mother and its young be killed
on the same day.
THE HOLY DAYS
During the year a number of
days were to be proclaimed as
holy convocations (when the
people were called together by
the sounding of the two silver
trumpets for worship at the
Sanctuary). These holy days,
on which no work was permit-
ted, are given in the following
order:
(a) The Sabbath.
(b) The first and last days of
Passover, the Feast of
Unleavened Bread-observed
from the 15th to the 21st of the
first month (Nisan). When the
Israelites had taken possession

of the land of Canaan they
were to present a sheaf of the
first-fruits of the (barley)
harvest on the 16th day of the
month to be waved on the altar
as an expression of gratitude
toG-d.
(C)The Fest of Weeks-on
the 50th day after the barley
offering was brought (that is
the sixth day of Sivan). Seven
weeks were to be counted from
the second day of Passover
and then a cereal offering of
two loaves made from the new
wheat harvest was to be waved
on the altar. The Israelite was
reminded of his duties to leave
the gleanings of the harvest
for the poor.
(c) 'Memorial of the blowing
of trumpets' that is Rosn
Hashanah, the New Year-to be
celebrated on the first day of
the seventh month (Tishri).
(e) The Day of Atonement-on
the tenth day of the seventh
month (Tishri). It was to be a
Sabbath of rest when people
were to fast and pray for the
atonement of their sins.
(f) The first day of the feast
of Tabernacles-observed for
seven days from the 15th to
the 21st of the seventh month
(Tishri)-marked the end of the
agricultural year. The festival
was to be celebrated with
great rejoicing, the people car-
rying the four species as a
token of thanksgiving and liv-
ing in booths during the whole
period to recall the wanderings
in the wilderness. The eighth
day, too (the 22nd of the
month-Shemini Atzereth) was
to be observed as 'a day of
solemn rest.'
THE LAMPS AND THE
SHOWBREAD
The people were reminded of
their duty to provide pure olive
oil for the lamps, which were
constantly to be kept burning
by the priests. The Showbread
was to be made of 12 cakes of
fine flour arranged in two
rows.
PENALTY FOR
BLASPHEMY
The son of an lsraelitish
mother and an Egyptian
father became engaged in a
fight with an Israelite, and
during the quarrel blasphemed
the name of G-d. He was plac-
ed in custody until the penalty
was declared that blasphemy,
like murder, was punishable by
death.

THE PRIESTHOOD
OF THE FUTURE
In the Temple to be built
after the Restoration the pro-
Ehet declares that only the
evites descended from
Zadok, the High Priest in
Solomon's time, would exer-
cise the priestly functions
(replacing the unworthy
Levites referred to earlier in
the chapter). Ezekiel proceeds
to specify their obligations and
duties which include the pro-
hibition to defile themselves by
contact with the dead save for
their nearst relatives (compare
similar Prohibition stated in
the Sidra).

CONGREGATION
B'NAI ISRAEL
Black and Jewish
Congregations In Boca
Raton Unite On Behalf Of
Ethiopian Hebrews
When the members of Con-
gregation B'nai Israel and
Ebenezer Missionary Baptist
Church came together for
their annual Passover Service
recently, they were united by
more than the usual prayers,
songs and declarations of
fellowship. This year, the two
congregations also embarked
upon a project of social action
on behalf of the black Jews of
Ethiopia known as Beta
Yisrael.
"It is a meaningful under-
taking for all," said Rabbi
Richard Agler, spiritual leader
of Boca Raton's Congregation
Reverend Anthony Holiday and Rabbi Richard Agler.
B'nai Israel. "Here we have
two peoples linked by a com-
mon heritage of discrimination
and oppression working
together on behalf of a third
people racially and religiously
tied to them both."
Petitions on behalf of the
black Jews' struggle for relief
from hunger and their right to
emigrate from Ethiopia were
circulated and presented to
Senators Chiles and Bob
Graham and Congressman
Dan Mica in Washington. Col-
lections of funds and food to
aid Ethiopian famine victims,
begun last year during the
height of the drive for African
hunger relief, were renewed.
The congregations sang
hymns recalling the first
Passover journey of the an-
cient Hebrews as the identical
dreams of the modern day
Beta Yisrael were recounted.
Ebenezer Missionary Bap-
tist Church, Boca Raton s
oldest and largest black
church, and Congregation
B'nai Israel have been holding
joint observances for three
years. Each January, they join
together at the synagogue to
commemorate Passover.
