For Advice
Dear Nomi, an advice column, will appear regularly in the
pages of The Jewish Floridian. '
Dear Nomi:
As Father's Day approaches
I am thinking how my father
left me when I was about
eight. My mother raised me
and provided for me while my
father left the state without
paying child support. I was not
raised in an atmosphere where
I was encouraged to keep in
touch with my father, and my
father himself never had a per-
manent address of his own
where I could reach him. Still,
I am torn inside. The Torah
says honor thy mother and thy
father. No matter what he has
done, above all, he helped give
me life. Should I send him a
father's day card despite the
fact that he has not been a
responsible father?
Dear Half-empty:

honor his role and respon-
sibilities as a parent to you,

The Twelve Spies
The Israelites had reached
Kadesh in the wilderness of
Paran. Twelve men, heads of
their respective tribes, were
sent by Moses to explore the
land of Canaan and report
back on the condition of its
people, soil, and fortifications.
Joshua, of the tribe of
Kphraim, and Caleb, of the
tribe of Issachar, were among
those selected. The spies
secretly crossed the mountain
path of the Negev in southern
( anaan and penetrated the
land to the extreme north.
After an absence of 40 days
they returned bringing with
them clusters of grapes,
pomegranates and figs as
evidence of the land's fertility.
They maintained, however,
that it would be impossible to
conquer Canaan as it was in-
habited by strong and power-
ful men, and the cities were
strongly fortified.
Caleb, followed by Joshua,
dissociated himself from this
despondent report and
counselled an immediate at-
tack. The people sided with the
majority and, panic-stricken,
broke out into open rebellion
and proposed the election of a
leader to lead them back to
Egypt. They refused to listen
to the renewed pleas of Caleb
and Joshua and threatened to
stone them to death.
G-d's anger was aroused
because of their lack of faith,
and He expressed His inten-
tion of destroying the people
and of forming a new nation
from Moses' own descendants.
Once again Moses interceded
successfully, but was told that
the people should turn back in-
to the wilderness in the direc-
tion of the Red Sea and not at-
tempt another attack on the in-
habitants of Canaan.
Although total destruction
was thus averted, it was
decreed that the people should
wander in the wilderness for
40 years a year for each day
the spies had searched the
land-until all over the age of
20, with the exception of Caleb
and Joshua, died; the next
generation would enter the
promised iand to witness the
fulfillment of G-d's promise.
Shelach II
The ten spies died as a result
of a sudden plague. Too late
the people realized their guilt
and declared their intention to
make an immediate attack on
Canaan, ignoring Moses' war-
ning against this further de-
fiance of G-d's will. Their at-
tack ended in disaster, for,
heavily defeated by the
Amalekites and Canaanites,
they suffered severe losses and
were driven back to Hormah.
Various Ordinances
As though to assure the peo-
ple that their children would
possess the Promised Land,
three laws were prescribed
which would then come in to
force: the quantities of meal
and oil required for the cereal
offering, and of wine for the
drink offering, both of which
would accompany the more im-
portant animal sacrifices; the
setting apart of the first of the
dough (prepared by the
Israelite from wheat, barley,
spelt, oats or rye) to be given
to the priest; and the sacrifices
to be brought as atonement for
sins committed in ignorance by
the community or an
The Sabbath-Breaker
Whilst wandering in the
wilderness the Israelites found
a man gathering sticks on the
sabbath day-an offence
punishable by death. Pending
a decision as to the mode of
punishment, the man was kept
in custody until the verdict
was declared that he be stoned
to death.
The Fringes
In order that the Israelites
should be constantly aware
that they were the holy people
of G-d and must observe His
commandments, the law was
given that fringes (Tzitzith) be
worn on the four corners of
their garments to serve as an
outward reminder of their con-
secration to G-d.
Haphtarah-Joshua II, 1-24:
In order that the Israelites
should be constantly aware
that they were the holy people
of G-d and must observe His
commandments, the law was
given that cringes (Tzitzith) be
worn on the four corners of
theur garments to serve as an
outward reminder of their con-
secration to G-d.
From Shittim, in the Jordan
valley, Joshua sends two spies
to bring back a report on Ca-
naan. After secretly crossing
the river Jordan, they are hid-
den by Rahab under stalks of
flax on the roof of her house
built on the walls of Jericho, so
as to avoid capture by the
king's men. She then helps
them to escape by lowering
them over the city wall oil
their undertaking that her life
ami the lives of her family will
be spared. After hiding in the
mountains for three days until
the pursuers abandon the
hunt, the spies rel urn to
Joshua and assure him of vic-
tory, for the Canaanites are
terrified at the prospect of in-
vasion. Compare the mission
of the 12 spies.

Is Reagan's Gulf 'Policy'
A Mistake?
Just where the Reagan Administration's
policy with respect to the Persian Gulf ap-
pears to be taking us is as difficult to assess
as is Reagan Administration policy in the
nearer Middle East. All of a sudden, the
President wants 11 Kuwaiti oil tankers to be
flying the American flag in their passage
through the Iraq-Iran war zone.
The object is for the American flag to
deter Iran from the kind of target practice
on the Kuwaiti tankers that it engaged in on
the USS Stark several weeks ago. But like
so much Reagan bluster, this is a pure
charade. Remember the "students" who
seized the U.S. Embassy in Teheran? The
sight of Old Glory flying above it did not
deter Iran then. Not for Jimmy Carter.
Nor did the presence of U.S. Marines in
Beirut stop anybody or anything from blow-
ing up some 260 of them. Not for Ronald
Reagan either. Or how about just plain old,
ordinary, everyday American hostages
whose kidnappings in Beirut have been in-
spired by the Ayatollah?
All of this should give us cause to wonder
if Mr. Reagan is making a mistake when he
believes that a U.S. flag on a Kuwaiti tanker
will make a safety difference to the tanker,
when a U.S. flag on the USS Stark did not.
Our Strange Friends
What is worse, if the President and his
shrewd aides are hell-bent on this dangerous
policy and Mr. Reagan has already
assured America's "allies" in Venice at an
economic conference this week that he is not
"bluffing" then the fact is that the
Kuwaiti tankers will have to be protected
without American air power, since the Per-
sian Gulf is too small for aircraft carriers.
But not only President Reagan, other
Presidents before him have long known that
the Gulf would be a tough place to protect as
an international waterway. It is precisely for
this reason that Washington has at least for
a decade made a profound effort to win the
right to base U.S. fighter planes and their
support forces in "friendly" countries in the
Among those of our "friends" who have
out-and-out refused us: the very Kuwaitis
whose 11 tankers Mr. Reagan is now deter-
mined to protect against Iranian attack;
and, of course, Saudi Arabia, to which the
Reagan Administration is now attempting
to sell another dozen F-15 jet fighters worth
a half-billion dollars on top of the AW ACS
and numerous missile systems of several
years ago.
Biggest Bluff of All
Indeed, it is this very Saudi Arabia which
refused to send up planes to force down the
Iraqi fighter that attacked the USS Stark
and killed 37 of its men.
The Saudis, constantly touted by Presi-
dent Reagan as America's "moderate ally"
among the Arabs in the Middle East, in fact
financially supports the PLO, refuses to
assist Egypt in a normalization of relations
with its Arab peers after the peace treaty
with Israel, and constantly warns away Jor-
dan from joining Israel and Egypt in an ex-
tension of peace efforts in the area.
As for the Kuwaitis, they taunted the
Reaganites into the President's latest mad-
cap policy by bringing the Soviet Union into
the Gulf area as Soviet flag guarantors of
three other Kuwaiti tankers. And with the
United States not to be outdone, and now
determined to guarantee 11 more,
Americans perhaps need reminding that
Kuwait's news media continually attack our
country with a virulence bordering on the
Most recently, Kuwaiti media accused
President, Reagan of being behind the at-
tack on the USS Stark because he "par-
ticipated directly and indirectly, in fomen-
ting, escalating and continuing the (Iran-
Iraq) war."
Why do these nations, the Kuwaitis and
the Saudis, get away with this kind of insani-
ty? Because our own insanity is to stand by
while the President talks to us about them
as if none of their sins against us are real.
And also plays his own brand of taps over
the "heroes" who gave their lives aboard the
Stark to protect America's "national securi-
ty" interests in the Persian Gulf because
our own insanity is to refuse to call it a lie
that these men, as Mr. Reagan has told us,
did not die "in vain."
Surely, they did, and not alone because
their deaths were the result of American
naval incompetence more so than of Iraqi
missile expertise, but because the Ad-
ministration continues its policy of speaking
aggressively while acting illogically. In
short, of acting without any policy at all.
When at Venice this week the President
said he was not "bluffing," that was perhaps
the biggest bluff of all.
South Beach Jews
Await Next Step in Area's Renewal
When Menachem Begin an-
nounced Project Renewal to a
gathering of Jewish leaders in
1976, he sprang it on them
unawares. The great dreamer
that he is, his idea for a part-
nership to better the lives of
Jewish people came from him
with no preamble and full
blown, much to the chagrin of
the UJA officials gathered at
the meeting.
They too are for the most
part, dreamers. But in addi-
tion to the dreamers there are
the "bean counters" who have
to deal with the nuts and bolts
of a program like Project
They asked for a year's
hiatus to organize the plan and
get it underway. They also
asked for a pledge from the
Israeli government that the
matching funds which Begin
had promised would be set
aside for the new program.
IN THE years which have
followed, Project Renewal has
had its ups and downs. There
are some spectacular success
stories Miami's Or Akiva is
among them and some real
flops. There are bureaucratic
horror stories and tales of
great individual ingenuity and
initiative. There are heroes,
funny fellows and villains.
Meanwhile, a lot closer to
home, the better than 20,000
Jews still living on South
Beach await the next series of
events in the continuing
revitalization of that area. For
some of them it will mean
dislocation and unhappiness.
For others, the gentrifica-
tion of the area will mean a
better way of life for them to
live out their twilight years.
There are pros and cons on the
plans and what it means to the
greater community as well as

grab you by the heart. You fly
to Israel. You are among your
people. You see the results of
Jewish money in a Jewish
land. Forgotten are all the ex-
cuses, all the anger at the
overzealous fund raiser. Here
it is. In flesh and blood, bricks
and mortar. Emotion runs
high. You can't wait to get
back home and tell the story,
to share the emotion of what
has affected you.
Stuff here at home is a lot
more mundane. The projects
of a community are important,
you know that. They have a
real impact on your life and
that of your neighbor, you
know that too. But it just does
not have that zest that the
overseas programs do.
Well, the life that you
breathe into local projects are
at least as important as the
rush you get from the ones in
Israel. A community operates
on its "soul," its neshama.
Dollars and cents are impor-
tant. They have to work. Both
on Project Renewal and the
local programs so vital to t In-
continuing growth of this
YOU HAVE to have "bean
counters" in Israel to tell
the truth they need a few more
and you need them here.
They put the numbers down
and crunch them until they
They must put tethers on the
dreamers lest they dream us
into a deficit beyond our
means to recover. It is the in-
teraction between these two
factions that make the
dynamics of a community.
Motivated by no more than
the dream that Jews are entitl-
ed to the best life, in Israel and
the United States, they dream
on, these dreamers. A set back
such as the foreclosure on
South Pointe can give one
pause, no doubt.
But, as Lee Iaccoca has
demonstrated, you cannot let
the bean counters run the
show. They have to put things
in perspective, but they cannot
be allowed to stop the
State of Israel a reality when
the bean counters of the world
said it could not happen. The
great Jewish communities of
the world including this one
grew in spite of the bean
counters who will always cry:
"we can't afford it!"
I am not advocating the
spending of money beyond the
Federation's ability to raise it.
I am saying that our greatness
as a people is that we can
dream and then we have the
capability to make it a reality.
The reality of a rebuilt Miami
Beach, of a growing communi-
ty with provision for its elderly
and its poor is as much a part
of Jewish life as the cities of
Project Renewal. And we all
have a part to play. Perhaps
some of us are only "bean
counters," with the ability to
keep score. But most of us, be-
ing Jewish, are natural
dreamers. And within the
framework of our Temple, our
community, our Federation,
there are dreams that need to
be brought to reality.
We are lucky enough to be
living in the latter half of the
20th Century, when we have
seen the near destruction of
the Jewish People turned into
the incredible redemption of
the State of Israel. Have you
played a part in it? If not, you
are missing the greatest
adventure of all time and one
you are privileged to be a part
of. Do it then.
Be a part of it. South Beach
or Or Akiva or any project for
which you think your God
given talents will advance.

can, but do not stand idly by.

definitive documentaries of
the Holocaust, the word he
coined to apply to the exter-
mination of six million Jews by
the Nazis.
The court listened in rapt at-
tention. The three magistrates
and nine jurors seemed spell-
bound. Prosecutor Pierre
Truche shut his thick Barbie
file and leaned forward, intent
not to miss a word. Only an oc-
casional sob from the public
gallery broke the silence of the
hushed courtroom.
The entire world knows
Wiesel's history. Plucked from
a Hungarian village in 1944
and put aboard a sealed train
to the Auschwitz death camp
with his family, he alone lives
to tell the tale. He told it here
again, 43 years almost to the
day after his deportation and
three days before his son's
15th birthday, his own age at
the time.
that more than four decades
after the tragedy he fails to
understand its meaning. "I
still cannot understand how
these people, the sons of the
most educated and civilized na-
tion in Europe at the time,
could have produced these
killers," he said.
"I still fail to understand the
members of the Sonderkom-
mandos (the squads who car-
ried out the tortures and
murders) could have been doc-
tors, lawyers, artists, music-
lovers who had killed by day
and returned to their homes in
the evening to read poetry and
listen to classical music."
The Nazis were obsessed
with killing Jews, Wiesel told
the court. The deportation
trains carrying the victims to
death camps were given priori-
ty over military trains taking
troops, arms and supplies to
the Eastern front where the
German army was then falling
back under the Soviet counter-
minutes, but his words encom-
passed years of horrors.
"There are some things about
which I cannot speak, like the
death of my little sister, the
suffering of my father, the
death of my mother, lest I
start weeping," he said.
At that point, a lawyer pre-
sent read part of his state-
ment. Then Wiesel continued:
"We arrived at Auschwitz in
the afternoon. I remember it
all, the barbed wires stret-
ching to infinity, the screams
of the welcoming committee,
the shots fired by the SS, the
barking of their dogs and the
huge flames reaching up to
high heaven as if to devour it.
"I remember how in a little
forest near Birkenau I saw the
SS throw small, live children
into the fire. In the city of
Kiev, I saw a group of
laughing, German soldiers
stop a mother and her two
children. They took one of her
children and killed it before
her eyes. Then they took the
second and killed it as well.
SHE WANTED to die, but
the killers preferred her alive.
I can see her today as she then
picked up the two small bodies,
drew them close to her chest
and started dancing. How can
I narrate such a scene? How
can I understand the evil
which hurts more than pain?
"Maybe one of the worst
things which happened was to
see others suffer. For a son to
see his father in pain, for a
father to see his son tortured.
All the victims are my
brethren. We bear them love
and admiration," Wiesel
He added: "All the victims
were not Jewish, but all the
Jews were the victims. For the
first time in history an entire
nation, from the oldest to the
youngest, from the richest to
the poorest, were sentenced to
death. The aim of the enemy
was to uproot them, to erase
them from history, to kill their
very memory. Being a Jew
was a capital crime for which
capital punishment was
"Even the Germans realized
the insanity of this situation.
An SS man told a Jew: 'Even if
you were to survive and tell
what happened, no one would
believe you.' "
"This is the problem,"
Wiesel said. "Who has not liv-
ed through it will never really
understand it. This trial is im-
portant to remind us of what
happened. Justice without
memory is incomplete. The
number of survivors is becom-
ing smaller every day. It is for
them, but also for the dead, for
their children and for yours
that this trial is important.
Forgetfulness is a crime just
like Auschwitz was absolute
In a way, with Wiesel's
testimony, the trial of Barbie
is practically over. What may
be heard from now on and the
verdict itself could be anti-

chief in Lyon charged with
crimes against humanity for

has been abolished in France.
He is 73, reportedly in poor
health. Under French law,
which allows the defendant to
be absent from his trial, Barbie
has boycotted the proceedings
since May 13, two days after
they started.
In his brief appearances in
the dock he personified the ar-
rogant, unrepentant Nazi,
claiming he was being held and
tried illegally. Many feel
outraged that he was not forc-
ed to be confronted by the
testimonies of Wiesel and
other witnesses.
His lawyer, Jacques Verges,
jolted and revolted the court
when he resorted to an ir-
relevancy to challenge Wiesel.
He asked the Holocaust sur-
vivor what he thought of
French collaborators.
"I did not live through that
period (in France)," Wiesel
replied. "I knew a generous
France which welcomed me
after the war. The trial of that
(wartime) France must take
place one day. It must confront
its memories, it must go
through a lucid examination of
its past. But not in this con-
text, not in the context of this
THE PURPOSE of Verges'
question then became ap-
parent. "Do you think that
Israel should in its turn do the
same for the murder of Arab
children in Deir Yassin?" the
lawyer asked.
Wiesel replied, "I am fully in
solidarity with Israel, and I
find it regrettable that the
lawyer of a man accused of
such horrible crimes as Barbie
is should accuse the Jewish
people. Is it all he has to say?"
Reprimanded by presiding
Judge Andre Cerdini. who
Elmer Winter
Given Award
Israel's President Chaim Her-
zog and Minister of Industry
and Trade Ariel Sharon have
presented Israel's Outstanding
Exporter Award to Elmer
Winter of Milwaukee, chair-
man of the Committee for
Economic Growth of Israel.
Winter is the first American
warned Verges he was "no
longer dealing with the trial,"
the lawyer managed to get in
the last word amid angry
shouts of protest from the
"So it is the French alone
who have to cast a lucid look at
their history? What I want is
that all nations be given the
same treatment," he said.
TWO OTHER witnesses
followed Wiesel on the stand:
Ita Halaunbrenner, whose two
daughters were among the 44
Jewish children from the
village of Izieu deported to
Auschwitz by Barbie; and For-
tunee Benguigui, whose three
sons were in the same convoy.
Halaunbrenner, 86, said she
waited 43 years for this mo-
ment. She had even gone to
Bolivia with Nazi-hunter Beate
Klarsfeld in 1972 to try in vain
to have Barbie deported. On
the witness stand she was
barely able to speak. She shook
her fist at the empty prisoners'
dock. "The name of my misfor-
tune is called Klaus Barbie,"
she said in a trembling voice.
"Justice, all I want is justice."
Holocaust Called 'Hoax'
Barbie Trial Spurs Hateful
Anti-Semitic Graffiti in France
PARIS (JTA) The trial
of Nazi war criminal Klaus
Barbie has produced a flood of
anti-Semitic graffiti and pam-
phleteering all over France,
much of it aimed at high school
students in the Paris area.
The most frequent claim is
that the Holocaust was a
Jewish hoax. A synagogue in
Nantes, a city of 223,000 in
northwestern France, had its
walls daubed with the words,
"Free Barbie" and "Hitler will
live for 1,000 years." The graf-
fiti was discovered Sunday
morning by Rabbi David
Azoulay. The local police are
Barbie, charged with crimes
against humanity, is on trial in
Lyon where he was the war-
time Gestapo chief responsible
for the deportation of
thousands of French Jews to
death camps.
Mezuzah Affixed
his formal judicial welcome as
federal court judge recently,
Marcus Einfeld and Rabbi Pin-
chus Feldman affixed a
mezuzah to the judge's
chambers, an event believed
unprecedented in New South
Wales legal history.
Israel Awareness Day
Gov. Tommy Thompson pro-
claimed May 31 Israel
Awareness Day in Wisconsin.
The tracts add, "The Jews
opposed Hitler like they op-
pose Waldheim now, but a
thousand times more." The
reference is to President Kurt
Waldheim of Austria, who has
been accused of complicity in
Nazi atrocities when he served
in the German army in the
Balkans during World War II.
Elsewhere, anonymous
tracts have appeared stating
that "No Jews were killed by
the Germans who deported
them to Eastern Europe
because the Jews were the
enemy of Germany."

Depressed Rabbi
Should Board Readmit Him To Central Conference?
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Jason Huebsch, an
Evanston, 111. freelance public
relations person, has taken on
a very controversial client
himself. Huebsch, who was or-
dained as a rabbi by the
Hebrew Union College in Cin-
cinnati in 1973, is publicizing
his struggle to gain readmis-
sion into the Central Con-
ference of American Rabbis.
Huebsch, who resigned from
the organization in 1978 and
has tried three times to gain
readmittance since 1980, con-
tends that he has been refused
on the basis of a handicap,
which, he says, is a breach of
Federal law.
HUEBSCH WAS diagnosed
in 1980 as having a condition
known as depressive illness, or
chronic depression. This condi-
tion, often caused by a
chemical imbalance, can be
treated with medication and
psychoanalysis. Huebsch is
currently on medication, under
the supervision of a
psychiatrist whom he sees for
15 minutes every three weeks.
Many famous people, among
them prominent politicians,
poets and musicians, have this
condition, according to
Huebsch. "Other members of
the Central Conference of
American Rabbis have the con-
dition as well," says Huebsch,
who cites Rabbi Jacob Rader
Marcus, honorary president of
the organization, "as one of
my sources for this
So the question of why

ceptable candidate for

membership remains.
Huebsch, in his article, "Han-
dicaps and Stigmas: The Per-
sistence to Endure and the
Spirit to Excel," answers this
question by calling the Con-
ference's reason for refusing
him admission "a hoax." He
does not say why.
member of the conference
automatically in L973 when he
was ordaineu as a rabbi. From
1973 to 1974, he was spiritual
leader of Temple Berith
Shalom in Troy, N.Y., but was
formally asked to leave
because, according to
Huebsch, "I followed a saint
(the late Rabbi Julius Gutman)
and was compared un-
favorably. The congregation
said that they wanted dynamic
change, but they didn't. I mov-
ed too fast. I m not a par-
ticularly patient personality."
Asked about who inherited
his pulpit, Huebsch replies that
Rabbi David Fass served there
for five years, and was suc-
ceeded by a woman rabbi who
has been serving there since
then "for a number of years
The Conference did not give
Huebsch any placements after
he lost his pulpit in Troy, N.Y.,
which was the reason Huebsch
handed in his resignation in
"THEY HAVE a brokering
resource for finding pulpit,
academic and chaplaincy jobs.
It was a case of blackballing. I
was outspoken, independent
a bit of a rebel," explains
Huebsch, who fails to identify
what he means by "indepen-
dent" or to describe what he
was "outspoken" or a "rebel"
against. Huebsch wrote a let-
ter seeking readmission into
the Conference. He received
an answer of "categorically
In 1985, Huebsch reapplied,
and at his insistence, met with
the admissions committee. He
spoke with the committee
about his illness, and says
"everyone was respectful. A
few were empathic." But ten
days later, Huebsch received a
telephone call and was told
that "the reason we are not ac-
cepting you is your depressive
illness and handicap, accor-
ding to Huebsch.
ON THE advice of Ex-
ecutive Vice President of the
Conference Rabbi Joseph
Glaser, Huebsch says that he
went to do volunteer work at
seven different congregations
in order to demonstrate his
competency in a synagogue
situation. Then in April of this
year, he wrote the admissions
committee and asked to reapp-
ly for the third time to become
a member.
Not content to await the
decision, Huebsch tried to rally
support from his colleagues in
the area and called each
member of the admissions
committee "to lobby and give
my perspective."
The answer that Huebsch
alleges he received was an un-
signed memo stating that:
"The superabundance of mail
and telephone calls from you
and about you convinced the
members of our committee, as
well as many of the people
whom you solicited, that you
are unable to demonstrate the
self-control necessary for pro-

|Koran's Rebellion
A group of Levites led by
Korah, a cousin of Moses and
Aaron, and a group of
Reubenites, led by Dathan,
Abiram and On, were joined by
250 prominent but
discontented laymen in revolt
against Moses and Aaron.
Korah considered he had as
much right as Aaron to be
elevated to the High
Priesthood. Dathan and his
associates sought to depose
Moses and based their claim to
the leadership on their descent
from Reuben, the firstborn of
Moses challenged Korah and
his followers to appear next
day at the Sanctuary before
G-d with censers filled with
lighted incense, and G-d
Himself would show whom He
had chosen. Were Korah and
his companions, he added, so
discontented with the privilege
of serving as Levites that they
sought the priesthood from
Aaron whom G-d had
Dathan and Abiram,
however, refused Moses' sum-
mons to attend, and accused
him of making fine promises
which he had not fulfilled.
Angrily Moses asserted his in-
tegrity, for he had never abus-
ed his power by accepting the
slightest gift from the people.
Korah and his associates,
followed by many sym-
pathizers, appeared next day
to undergo the test. G-d, in
anger at the people's lack of
faith, threatened to destroy
the whole community, but
Muses and Aaron successfully
interceded arguing that
through one man's sin it would
be wrong for the masses to be
punished. Moses, having warn-
ed the people to stand aloof
from the tents of Korah,
Dathan and Abiram, announc-
ed the test by which the true
leadership would be decided. If
the rebels died a natural death
t hen Moses would be proved in
the wrong; should however,
the earth swallow them alive,
then it would be proved that
they had despised G-d.
No sooner had Moses spoken
than Korah and the other
rebels with all their posses-
sions were destroyed in an ear-
thquake and the people fled in
terror. In addition fire came
from the L-rd and consumed
the 250 men who offered in-
cense. Their censers were col-
lected by Eleazar the priest
and made into plates for the
covering of the Altar of burnt-
offering, as a warning that on-
ly Aaron and his descendants
were permitted to burn in-
cense before the L-rd.
The people turned against
Moses and Aaron whom they
held responsible for the death
of so many of their leaders,
and were punished by a
plague. Moses told Aaron to
take a censer of fire and in-
cense from the Altar, move
among the people and pray for
their forgiveness. The plague
then ceased, but not before
14,700 people had died.
Vindication of Aaron
The princes of the 12 tribes
were each commanded to br-
ing a rod, inscribed with their
names. These, together with
the roa ot Levi, bearing the
name of Aaron, were
deposited before the ark. The
following morning Aaron's rod
alone was found to have pro-
duced buds, blossoms and
almonds; a clear sign that G-d
had chosen him to be High
Priest. Aaron's rod was
preserved before the ark as a
warning to future generations
never again to challenge his
right to the priesthood.
The Priestly Dues
As the priests and Levites
would have no share in the
Promised Land when it would
be divided among the tribes,
provisions were made for the
maintenance of the priests to
include the Meal-Offering, Sin-
Offerings and Guilt-Offerings
(with the exception of the por-
tions burned on the Altar); the
portions of the Peace-
Offerings waved on the Altar;
the first-fruits of oil, wine and
corn; firstlings of clean
animals and the redemption
price of the firstborn of men.
The Levites in return for
their service in the Tabernacle
were to receive from the
Israelites a tithe, i.e., one-
tenth of the produce of the
fields, and from this tithe the
Levites were to set aside one-
tenth for the priests.
Haphtarah Shabbat Rosh
Chodesh, Isaiah LXVI (read
on the Sabbath which coin-
cides with Rosh Chodesh):
No Temple, says the pro-
phet, can contain the Divine
Presence which fills the
universe. G-d looks for humili-
ty and sincerity in man, and
will severely punish the
hypocrite who brings sacrifices
yet, outside the Sanctuary, in-
dulges in loathsome idolatrous
rites. The faithful will be
rewarded with peace and joy
and the exiles brought back to
Jerusalem by the nations as a
tribute to G-d's Sovereignty.
From one new moon to
another and from one Sabbath
to another all mankind will
come to worship the L-rd.
The additional reading of the
Law is taken from Numbers
28:9-15, dealing with the
sacrifices offered on the Sab-
bath and New Moon.

Palestinian Editor
Eyes Jerusalem Council or Knesset Seat
Hanna Seniora, the Palesti-
nian editor who seeded a storm
of controversy with his an-
nouncement last Thursday
that he would seek a seat in
the Jerusalem City Council in
the next elections, appears to
be having second thoughts.
He told the English Sunday
edition of his newspaper, the
East Jerusalem Arabic daily
Al-Fajr, that his decision to
run was not final. He said his
announcement was, in fact, in-
tended to shock the Israeli and
Palestinian communities and
force them "to think.'*
Seniora, 49, a leading in-
tellectual and supporter of the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion though not a member, said
his announcement was not
coordinated with the PLO.
IT DREW fierce criticism
from pro-PLO elements. The
East Jerusalem daily A-Shaab,
which reflects the views of the
radical wing of El Fatah, call-
ed Seniora's plan naive and
Al-Fajr published an article
by Fayik Barakat, chairman of
the Arab Chamber of Com-
merce in East Jerusalem, who
accused Seniora of col-
laborating with the annexation
of East Jerusalem by Israel
and said his announcement
was a "bad idea."
Seniora said Thursday that
he intended to organize a
Palestinian list to run in the
Jerusalem election, which is
scheduled for September,
1988. On Friday, Seniora went
a step further, telling an inter-
viewer that he might seek a
Knesset seat in the future.
He said that was not to be
ruled out "if the occupation is
prolonged." Seniora said he
subscribed to the ideas of Dr.
Sari Nusseibeh, a professor at
Bir Zeit University in the West
Bank, who has exhorted
Palestinians to use their
demographic edge in Israel's
democratic processes to
achieve their political aim,
which he said is "national
SENIORA SAID this is just
a theory at present, but could
become the blueprint for a
pragmatic political challenge.
Nusseibeh, however, has
dissociated himself from
Seniora's initiative, calling it a
"one-man show" that has not
been sufficiently debated.
Nusseibeh told the
Jerusalem Post Sunday that
the plan could become realistic
if two conditions were met.
First is sponsorship of the
PLO as part of a broader de-
mand for political rights for
Palestinians in the ad-
ministered territories as a step
toward the creation of a bi-
national state.
Second, he said, is failure of
the Middle East peace process.
A stalemate could prompt a
new Palestinian strategy
whereby the PLO would be
transformed into something
like the African National Con-
gress aspiring for equal rights
under an Israeli
Seniora's only serious
Palestinian backing came from
Mayor Elias Freij of
Bethlehem, a moderate who
has long urged Palestinian-
Israeli cooperation.
THE IDEA was welcomed
by Israeli moderates, including
Mayor Teddy Kollek of
Jerusalem, who called
Seniora's announcement a
welcome development.
Minister of Immigration and
Absorption Yaacov Tsur, a
Labor Party dove, also saw
merit in Seniora's plans. He
said it pinpointed Israel's
future dilemma if it retains
control of the West Bank and
Gaza Strip.
"If we were to annex the ter-
ritories, we would have to
choose between abandoning
the Jewish character of the
state 'or abandoning its
democratic character," Tsur
said, adding "both are unac-
ceptable to me."
Israeli hardliners denounced
Seniora's possible candidacy.
Marian Porat of the Gush
Emunim said the editor must
be blocked because he is an
avowed opponent of
Jerusalem's status as Israel's
Now is lowest.
