Senator Lawton Chiles Speaks
Out On Media And Politics
Senator Lawton Chiles
By ALISA KWITNEY
And ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writers
Extensive media coverage of
events such as the Iran-Contra
Hearings has effected the
nature of politics somewhat,
but there is no cause for con-
cern that the American public
will vote for candidates with
more personality than plat-
form, according to Senator
Lawton Chiles, (D., Fla.), who
met with Jewish Floridian
reporters for an exclusive in-
terview last week.
"A lot of people are very
frustrated with the soap opera
mentality (of the Iran-Contra
Hearings) but you can't judge
things like that immediately,
in the time frame that they
happen," says Chiles.
"You've got to be able to
stand back and look at many
things in a 10-20 year span.
Give the American people a
longer period of time and
they'll adjust to the media and
make pretty good choices,"
contends Chiles, who feels that
candidates chosen for their
charm will eventually disillu-
sion their constituents.
"This is a little bit what is
happening with President
Reagan now," says Chiles. "A
lot of people embraced him,
because he was a consummat-
speech reader and actor, but
now I think people are
understanding that there's
another side to it. That's the
nice thing about our govern-
ment. It learns from its
mistakes."
Chiles, who is chairman of
both the Senate's Budget
Committee and the Appropria-
tions Subcommittee on Health,
Education and Welfare, is also
on the Democratic Steering
Committee and the
Democratic Leadership Com-
mittee. Not surprisingly, he
has strong words to say about
President Reagan's manage-
ment of the national budget.
"During the Reagan ad-
ministration, we have tripled
our national debt, and yet he's
supposed to be this conser-
vative, fiscal president.
"He never presented a
balanced budget to congress in
the entire time he was in of-
fice, never really addressed
the issue. He always said, 'no
new taxes, yet we've got to
have more money for
defense,' states Chiles.
"He was perfectly willing to
cut social programs, and take
all the money out of there. It
reached a point where Con-
gress said, 'wait a minute, we
don't want that any more,' "
recounts Chiles, who believes
that although the national
budget must be balanced, this
should not be done at the ex-
pense of valuable projects.
Some of those projects have
to do with social programs:
Chiles came to Miami to par-
ticipate in a hearing about the
high school drop-out problem
in Florida, which has the se-

Dr. Schorsch:
Jews Today Are Hungry For Yiddishkeit
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
There is a lot of spiritual
deprivation among today's
young Jews and they are less
rebellious and more hungry for
Judaica. They are searching,
and this search has resulted in
the highest enrollment ever in
the 101-year-old Jewish
Theological Seminary of
America, said the institution's
Chancellor Dr. Ismar
Schorsch.
Schorsch, a renowned
scholar and Jewish historian,
was in South Florida last week
to welcome the opening of the
Seminarv's new headquarters
in Hollywood, which will func-
tion as the southeast region
fundraising headquarters and
as a source for arranging
Jewish scholars to speak at
area synagogues.
The Seminary is the only
American school which ordains
rabbis and cantors in the Con-
servative movement. The
Seminary, based in New York,
has played a vital role in
building Judaic studies in
America. But the growth in
the field has only reinforced
the mission of the Seminary,
Schorsch told The Jewish
Floridian in an exclusive
interview.

Catholics And Jews
Issue Joint Communique
The two delegations issued a joint communique
reiterating their decisions and expressing the hope for a
future better understanding.
At a joint press conference, Bishop William Keeler,
Bishop of Harrisburg and chairman of the American
Bishop's Conference for Inter-religious Affairs, said that
Jews and Catholics will work together in elaborating and
drafting the Vatican document on the Holocaust and the
roots of anti-Semitism.
Keeler said American Catholics "need such a document
as much as our Jewish brethren." Waxman explained that
the Jewish delegation has expressed its shock and outrage
over the Waldheim affair and the Vatican expressed its
own reasons for the meeting.
He concluded: "Now that we have all made our position
clear it is time we move forward.''

"Many of the students stu-
dying in our summer program
are not our own students. That
is true for graduate students
and rabbinical students," he
said.
"Many of our graduate
students are coming today
from colleges where they
discovered Judaica at the col-
lege level. More young people
are interested in Judaism. The
Ba'al T'shuva (return to obser-
vant Judaism) movement
which tends to be identified
with the Orthodox community
is a much larger phenomenon.
We are the beneficiaries of the
same search for religious
meaning."
Schorsch, 51, is a second
generation Conservative Jew.
His father was a Conservative
rabbi. Born in Germany, his
family came to the United
States shortly after
Kristellnacht and after his
father spent three weeks in
Buchenwald concentration
camp. Similarly, most of the
faculty at the Seminary today
are American-born and, as
Schorsch said, Conservative-
bred.
"So there is less of a cultural
gap between students and
faculty. That is a dramatic
change," Schorsch noted.
"The students that we have
today are different tha he
students of 30, 40 years ago,
They tend to come from the
left and not the right. Thirty
years ago we were getting at-
trition from the Orthodox, community. They are in search

40 years ago they were in
rebellion against an Old World
Orthodoxy that was alien to
American society.
"In many ways, our students
are less hostile, less rebellious.
It's a much more inviting stu-
dent body to teach because
they're more hungry. They
have fewer hangups."
Back about 40 years ago,
Mordechai Kaplan, the father
of the Reconstructionist move-
ment, was the dominant
theological figure at the
Seminary and attracted the
loyalty of more students
perhaps than any other faculty
member because his position
was so thoroughly anti-
Orthodox. Today, Schorsch
said, "Kaplan's theory at the
Seminary is utterly passe."
And the students, he said, do
not have to be taught what Or-
thodoxy isn't. They have to be
guided into what Judaism is.
In other ways, teaching in
the,Seminary has not changed
from 30 years ago.

continue to devote 60 to 70
percent of the time devoted to

texts are studied from the
perspective of modern scholar-
ship," Schorsch said. "It is to
be distinguished from Reform,
where they don't spend much
time studying rabbinic texts,
and from Orthodoxy, where
they totally reject modern
scholarship."
The historic function of Con-
servative Judaism, according
to Schorsch, is to weld the
American Jewry into a single
community.
"American Jewry is
threatened by polarization and
bifurcation, which is much
more advanced in Israel. What
I think the times call for is a
reinforcement of a vital center
that will bridge the extremes,
that will serve to restrain the
extremes that will provide a
viable option for the large ma-
jority of Jews."
There is an extraordinary
amount of consistency in the
history of Conservatism com-
pared to Reform, which is
marked by a lot of "flip-flops,"
Schorsch said, citing as an ex-
ample, the Reform move-
ment's position on Israel.
"Conservatism has always
been strongly identified with
Zionism, it has always had a
strong commitment to the
Hebrew language, it's always
had a deep commitment to the
study of Talmud and the
development of Halacha. You
do not find Conservatism
adopting positions and then
repudiating them," Schorsch
said.
But it does take time for the
Conservative movement to
adopt changes, such as mixed
seating and the ordination of
women as rabbis and cantors,
both done within the past
decade.
"But once they are adopted
they tend to stick because they
tend to be more moderate, '
Schorsch said.
Schorsch declines to label
the Conservative movement as
"mainstream" Judaism and
prefers to classify it as "cen-
trist" Judaism. Conservative
Judaism, he said, is marked by
three things.
The first is the method of
study, which is an immersion
in traditional texts from the
perspective of modern
scholarship.
The second, is the form of
prayer. "Our synagogues are
traditional yet egalitarian.
That is increasing within the
Conservative movement.
Women are called to the Torah
and give sermons." Yet the
stress is not on egalitarianism
but on the traditionalism of the
service. The service is still
predominantly Hebrew and
still a full-length reading of the
Torah. So there is a mix of the
modern and traditional.
The third factor is the way of
life. Conservatism is "not just
a disembodied ethical code, it
is a prescribed way of living."
The relationship between
the movements in this country
is "fairly civil, and there is a
lot of healthy competition, no
movement exercises power
over the other," Schorsch said.
"What makes the Israeli
situation so unhealthy," he
observed, "is the intrusion of
the state into religious mat-
ters, which gives the Orthodox
a monopoly. That is why
debate is so acrimonious in
Israel. As long as the religious
competition is left to the free
market it seems to be produc-
tive and healthy for the entire
Jewish community. Once a
movement has power to ex-
clude another movement, then
it becomes destructive."
By training, Schorsch is a
modern Jewish historian.
That, he said, gives him a sen-
sitivity to issues that he would
not have had if he were an
authority on ancient Judaism.
His main devotion now is to a
revitalization of the Conser-
vative movement.
"I think that it is also ex-
tremely important to build a
powerful Conservative move-
ment in Israel and that's one of
the things I've devoted a lot of
time to this year. I think that
Israel desperately needs a
religious alternative to
Orthodoxy."
An Explanation Of The Jewish
High Holy Days For Non-Jews
Every autumn the Jewish
people observe their High Holy
days. Tley are a 10 day period
beginning with Rosh
Hashanah, which means New
Year, and climaxing with Yom
Kippur, the Day of Atone-
ment, a fast day.
The Jewish New Year has
nothing to do with the secular
calendar. Like others Jews
regard Jan. 1 as the beginning
of the regular year.
Rosh Hashanah is the begin-
ning of the spiritual New Year,
when Jews make a new effort
to review the past and deter-
mine how to upgrade their
"spiritual score." It's a new
year of conscience, not the
calendar.
In the synagogue the Jews
recite prayers thanking God
for the power He gives us to
improve the moral quality of
our lives. Sermons and hymns
sound the note of remorse and
repentance. At daytime ser-
vices the Shofar, or ram's horn
is sounded as a call to
conscience.
On the Tenth day, Yom Kip-
pur, the devotions are given
over to more prayer, songs
and sermons focusing on the
need to seek forgiveness from
those we have hurt and to
grant it to those who have of-
fended us.
As with all Jewish holidays,
observances begin in the even-
ing. The Yom Kippur liturgy
commences with the singing of
the haunting melody called Kol
Nidre (All Vows), a plea t/ the
Almighty for pardon of rash
vows.
In 1987, The Holy Days are
from Sept. 24 to Oct. 3. In
1988 the dates are Sept. 12 to
Sept. 21.
When the observances are
over, Jews wish each other
"Good Yomtov,"which means
"Happy Holiday," or
"L'shanah Tovah," Hebrew
for "a good year."
Although the holy days are
the most important Jewish
observances, there is nothing
about them which doesn't app-
ly to all people. That is why a
Christian clergymen once sug-
gested that Christians join in
their observance. Among the
Biblical references to the
holydays are Leviticus 23 and
Acts 27.9.
Rabbi Samuel H. Silver
Gang Of Terrorists Discovered
TEL AVIV (JTA) A gang of West Bank terrorists was
recently discovered before it carried out planned attacks against
Israel. Israel Radio reported that the gang members were from
Tulkarm, Kalkilya, Nablus and Bethlehem, who acted under
orders from Amman.
The gang included a man trained in Afghanistan by Afghan
rebels in the use of remote-controlled explosives, and a 25-year-
old woman who had been instructed to serve as a suicide bomber,
driving an explosive-laden car and detonating it with herself in it
in a crowded Israeli center.
In Israel, he asserts, it is
either Orthodoxy or nothing.
"If that were the case in this
country," Schorsch said, "85
percent of American Jewry
would be lost to Judaism. The
only reason we can risk that in
Israel is because it is a Jewish
state, so 85 percent are forced
to define themselves nationally
rather than religiously."
During his tenure with the
Jewish Theological Seminary
of America, Schorsch saw the
first class of women admitted
to the rabbinical and cantorial
schools.
The decision was reflective
of mainstream Conservativism
and really was the first time
the Seminary had to take a
religious stand, Schorsch said.
There's no question that
egalitarianism is becoming the
prevailing norm and Schorsch
predicts that the feminist
movement will impact on Or-
thodoxy just as it has within
other movements.
Schorsch, addressing the
opening of the new Seminary
regional office on Sheridan
Boulevard, said the office is
important because it expresses
a sense of permanence.
"We're here to stay. We are
determined to create a visible
and fruitful presence in the
Miami area. The Seminary has
been here for many years, but
much of the Seminary's in-
terest in those years was the
snowbirds.
"But this office is interested
in the permanent residents of
the metropolitan area. This is
a large and vital Conservative
Jewish community and the
Seminary has much to offer it
and seeks to develop a much
closer relationship with that
community."
The office will include new

formerly with the American
Friends of Hebrew University
as the director for Dade Coun-
ty and prior to that was
Women's Division Director for
the Jewish Federation of
Greater Fort Lauderdale and
the National Council of Jewish
Women.
"What makes this seminary
different from other fund rais-
ing organizations is we're the
Center for Conservative
Judaism," Reichbaum said.
"It's the center of religious
education for rabbis, cantors
and Jewish educators who go
out into the communities so
the effect this Seminary has on
the American Jewish com-
munity is much broader than
just an educational
community.'*

What Are Christian Children
Being Taught About Jews?
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
And ALISA KWITNEY
Jewish Floridian Staff Writers
There was a time when a
Jewish child, going to school in
a predominantly Christian
neighborhood, could expect to
hear the epithet, "Christ-
killer," at least once before
reaching adulthood.
And now, even as Jewish
and Christian leaders hold for-
mal meetings here and
throughout the world in order
to discuss how best to improve
relations between their two
religions, the real arena for
determining whether there
will be harmony or discord bet-
ween the two faiths is still the
playground.
WHAT CHILDREN think
and feel about other nices and
religions is determined in large
part by what they are taught
at home and in Sunday or
religious school. In a survey
this week, The Jewish Flori-
dian asked some of Miami's
Protestant pastors, Ministers,
and reverends: What are
Christian children being
taught about the Jews in 1987?
"We view Jews as people
who need Christ, just as all
people do. We believe that peo-
ple are lost without Christ,"
said Pastor Steven Kimmel, of
the Central Baptist Church.
"The Jewish faith is an im-
portant part of the Christian
faith since we were born
through Judaism. We believe
that Christianity is the conclu-
sion of Judaism, Christianity
begins where Judaism is left
off."
KIMMEL SAYS he teaches
his own children that Jews and
Southern Baptists believe in
the same God, but the dif-
ference is that Jews do not
believe Christ is the savior.
"I don't ever see a
theological resolution of the
difference in the view of
Christ, but that doesn't mean
there can't be social peace and
harmony among us.
Kimmel agrees that Jews
are not outspoken about con-
verting people, whereas he
and those who share his beliefs
are. "We take a text from Mat-
thew to make disciples out of
all people, to teach them and to
baptize them."
Although Kimmel states
that he has "never ever heard
of any allusion to the
Holocaust being connected to
some kind of divine punish-
ment," he admits that, as a
Baptist, he would say that "all
people are lost without Christ,
meaning that they will be
separated from God for all
eternity, and being separated
from God is pure hell."
One cannot earn one's way
into heaven with good deeds,
according to Kimmel's inter-
pretation of the New Testa-
ment, because "the gift of
eternal life is through Jesus."
QUOTING FROM the
Gospel according to Paul the
Gospels, according to Jews,
are the traditional sources of
Christian anti-Semitism
Kimmel adds that "Jews lost
their elect status with God
when they rejected Christ,.
that status (of being Gc
chosen people) was given to
what is called the New Israel,
the church."
One of the seven points in a
recent Presbyterian USA reaf-
firmation statement calls for
"A willingness to ponder with
Jews the mystery of God's
election of both Jews and
Christians to be a light to the
nations."
How does he respond to
that?
Kimmel said that "sounds
like they (Presbyterians) are
softening theologically. It's
unlikely that Baptists would
draw such a statement.
"Our kids are taught that
anyone who dies without
Christ is lost, although we
don't necessarily focus on
Jews."
PASTOR JOSHUA M. Gar
vin, the black leader of the
New Life Baptist Church of
Carol City, has participated in
the annual dialogue between
Christians and Jews.
Still, Garvin says he teaches
the youth of his church that
Jews were God's chosen peo-
ple "and because of their
disobediance to God, not to
man, God removed the salva-
tion from them and gave it to
the Gentiles.
"We also teach them that
the Jews are still God's chosen
people, and the first disciples
were Jewish, and Jesus Christ
himself was a Jew. The respon-
sibility we have now as Chris-
tians is to deliver salvation to
all people, including Jews.
That was the Jews' mission in
the beginning, but they felt
that God was just for them.
Some of them still do, Jews, as
well as anyone who doesn't ac-
cept Christ, are lost.
During the Jewish-Christian
dialogue, Garvin says "we
agreed on a lot of things." But,
he adds, some of the rabbis
believed that Jesus was "just
another prophet. I can't agree
with that," Garvin concedes.
GARVIN ALSO teaches
that Jews, as well as anyone
who does not accept Jesus as
the Messiah (in Greek,
Christos, hence Christ) is
"doomed to hell."
"I have Jews who come by
my church," Garvin said. "We
do quite a bit of debating. I've
found most Jews go by tradi-
tions and customs, what they
are taught at home, not by stu-
dying what the Bible says.
Jews believe in just the Torah.
We believe in the whole Testa-
ment, the New Testament."
Why should anyone go to
hell?
"Because the Bible says so,"
Garvin answers.
Jews need to study the scrip-
tures more, asserts Garvin,
but when asked if the average
Christian studies the scrip-
tures, he answers, "No, they
don't. They're lost too."
GRADY PERRYMAN,
associate pastor of the Miami
Shores Presbyterian Church,
says his views differ from that
of Southern Baptists.
Perryman said he read the
major points of the
Presbyterian USA statement,
and his group is a member of
that umbrella organization. "I
don't see it as being controver-
sial at all. It's a very tame
document that will not upset
people at all," he said.
The points in the
Presbyterian reaffirmation
state:
A reaffirmation that the
God who addresses both Chris-
tians and Jews is the same
the living and true God.
A new understanding by
the church that its own identi-
ty is intimately related to the
continuing identity of the

From the BBYO Desk
The B'nai B'rith Youth
Organization (BBYO) the oldest
and largest Jewish youth group in
the world, is proud to report on
several local youth who par-
ticipated in its highly acclaimed
International Leadership Train-
ing Conference (ILTC). The ILTC
is a three-week leadership
seminar which has been described
by some as "the finest practical
leadership program in the coun-
try." Over 200 Jewish teens from
all over the world come together
to participate in a variety of pro-
grams which are designed to
develop leadership skills which
can be used in and out of BBYO.
The ILTC is held each summer at
the B'nai B'rith's Perlman Camp
in Starlight, Pennsylvania.
Local participants in this sum-
mer's ILTC included Jessica Arm-
strong of Plantation. Adrian
Neiman at Coral Springs, Brett
Berlin and Lew Minsky of Boca
Raton and Jill Robinson of-
Hollywood. All currently serve as
leaders at the chapter, Council
and/or Regional levels of BBYO.
In BBYO leaders are not merely
born; they are made. Through par-
ticipation in the ILTC, and similar
leadership programs at the local
levels, Jewish youth learn
decision-making, interpersonal
and motivational skills which they
often find useful in later life.
Locally the BBYO has chapters
throughout the North Dade,
Broward and Palm Beach areas. If

Klan Marches
Invisible Empire' Exploit Davie
Event For Their Own Advantage
By ALISA KWITNEY
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
"This is another attempt of
the 'Invisible Empire,' the
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan,
to exploit a local event for con-
troversy, to their own advan-
tage," says Arthur
Teitelbaum, regional director
of the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith here in
South Florida, in response to
the Klan demonstration in
Davie Aug. 30.
The Klan, which marched on
Davie Road near WAVS-AM
radio, was showing support for
a group of Davie residents who
had held a demonstration one
week earlier. The Davie
residents had been protesting
a Haitian demonstration
against the radio station, held
for political reasons.
White Davie residents
gathered nearby the Klan
demonstration, however, did
not welcome the Klan
demonstration any more than
they had welcomed the Haitian
protest, and have announced
that their objection to the Hai-
tian action was not inspired by
racism.
"The Invisible Empire has
only a handful of members in
South Florida," says
Teitelbaum, "and this is the
third time in three months that
they have tried to demonstrate
their strength through local
demonstrations. In each case
they have demonstrated their
weakness by being unable to
muster more than a corporal's
guard of Klansmen."
Teitelbaum admits that the
actions of the citizens of Davie,
who demonstrated against the
Haitian protest with Con-
federate flags and placards
with slogans suggesting that
the Haitians be deported, were
not blameless.
"There is certainly the
possibility of seeing racism in
the counter-demonstrators'
behavior, but their response to
the Klan shows the complexity
of the situation," states
Teitelbaum.
"The folks of Davie were ob-
viously intolerant of the First
Amendment rights of those
demonstrating the radio sta-
tion, while expressing their
own freedom of speech
through staging their own
counter-demonstration.
"But those who were
demonstrating against the
Haitians obviously did not
want to be portrayed as
gutter-level racists,"
Teitelbaum adds.
The Klan, according to
Teitelbaum, was seeking to
tind a platform in order to
garner publicity and new
recruits, but "the citizens of
Davie made it clear that they
view the Klan as
troublemakers and outsiders."
Judy Gilbert, associate direc-
tor of the Community Rela-
tions Committee of the Jewish
Federation of Greater Miami,
responds to the events in
Davie by saying that "the fact
that the community of Davie
didn't want the Ku Klux Klan
involved was definitely
positive.
"But I wouldn't go so far as
to say that because of one inci-
dent, racial tensions will disap-
pear. It takes understanding,
it takes dialogue, and it takes
the willingness to understand
the differences between
people."
Yet Davie, which has
displayed its reluctance to ad-
mit the tensions and strife of
outside groups into its com-
munity, may have to learn to
deal with such issues.
"Like the rest of South
Florida, Davie is going to
grow, and as it grows it is go-
ing to become more diverse
ethnically," Gilbert predicts.
"It will have to confront
more problems of various
ethnic groups, and hopefully
the community will be able to
resolve them peacefully,
without outside help from
groups like the Ku Klux Klan,"
says Gilbert.
The people of Davie should
be applauded for realizing that
Klan tactics are inappropriate,
according to Mark Freedman,
Southeast Regional Director
of the American Jewish
Congress.
"Davie is a residential,
placid community and they
were probably concerned that
there might be violence at the
radio station (during the Hai-
tian protest). That turned out
not to be the case," says
Freedman, giving a possible
explanation for the counter-
protest held by Davie
residents.
"The situation in Florida is
very fluid. South Florida has
undergone a tremendous
change in the past 20 years in
terms of racial and ethnic com-
position, and building a
cohesive community takes
hard work," Freedman points
out.
But people who point fingers
at South Florida should take a
second look at the strides the
area has made.

Aircraft Workers Demonstrate
Against Cabinet Decision
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Thousands of disgruntled
workers from Israel Aircraft
Industries carried out their
threats and disrupted traffic in
Tel Aviv and central Israel in
protest against the Cabinet
decision Sunday to scrap the
Lavi warplane project.
The workers forced hun-
dreds of cars to use alternate
routes by blocking off the
Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway
with burning tires. Tourists
missed flights out of the coun-
try because of the traffic jams.
Others marched through the
streets of Tel Aviv to Labor
party headquarters, blocking
traffic on central roads. The
IAI workers were incensed
with Labor Party leader
Shimon Peres who led the op-
position to producing the Lavi.
Police refrained from using
force to disperse the
demonstrators.
An atmosphere of gloom
pervaded at IAI offices at Lod
Airport Monday as Ovadia
Harari, head of the Lavi pro-
ject, announced that he was re-

quested to lay off 3,000
workers with a second round
of 3,000 soon to come. State-
owned IAI is Israel's largest
employer with some 20,000
workers. Harari said the im-
mediate dismissals would in-
clude 1,000 engineers.
"Many asked me what we
should do? I told them: Don't
do anything, just sit at home
and wait to be fired," Harari
said. "Some retorted: We
won't wait, we shall leave the
country on our own"
The workers warned they
would continue their protests.
A meeting between represen-
tatives of the demonstrating
workers and Premier Yitzhak
Shamir during which
Shamir promised an effort to
bring the issue to a second
Cabinet vote eased tensions.
Minister-Without-Portfolio
Moshe Arens, who threatened
to resign over the Cabinet
decision announced he would
delay his resignation until the
prospects for a second vote
were clarified. Yisrael Kessar,
Histadrut Secretary General,
also promised IAI workers he
would try to exert his in-
fluence to reverse the decision.
Peres cautioned against rais-
ing false hopes among the
workers and rejected the op-
tion of a second vote saying it
would bring no change.
Defense Minister Yitzhak
Rabin said there was no need
for immediate layoffs and pro-
mised to coordinate the
dismissal process with the
Minister of Labor and Welfare
so that many workers will be
absorbed in other industries.

racial and ethnic conflicts has
reduced considerably," Freed-
man contends.
"There have been a number
of writers who have taken it
upon themselves to do some
Florida-bashing recently, and
perhaps it's time for them to
look at their own communities
and not at ou:*s," he
suggests.
Bill Gralnick Southeast
Regional director of the
American Jewish Committee,
says that "the Klan has always
had a historical base in Davie,
and that was an incident that
was made to order for the
Klan, because they're not only
anti-Semitic and anti-black,
they're also anti-immigrant.
"The people of Davie are
Teitelbaum Freedman
threatened by changing
lifestyles, and that is part of
what makes the Klan tick.
Still, it's not significant that
the Ku Klux Klan
demonstrated. What's signifi-
cant is that they had no appeal.
"I don't think the good and
decent people of Davie want
their feelings expressed by the
Klan." Says Gralnick, "You
can be anti-development and
pro-small town and not be a
member of the Klan. You can
be against the Haitian protest
and not resort to axe handles
and sheets and bullhorns to ex-
press yourself."
Which is, it seems, exactly
what the residents of Davie
felt, and what the Ku Klux
Klan may have just learned.
U.S. To Return Envoy To Syria
But Will Continue Sanctions
WASHINGTON (JTA) The State Department announc-
ed Friday that it will return the United States Ambassador to
Damascus in "response to positive steps" Syria has taken
against terrorism. U.S. envoy William Eagleton was recalled
last October after Syria was implicated in the attempted bomb-
ing of an El Al plane in London in April 1986.
"Our information shows a decrease in levels of Syrian sup-
port .or terrorist activities and some other groups," said State
Department spokesperson Phyllis Oakley. "Syria has closed the
Abu Nidal organization offices in Damascus and expelled all
known Abu Nidal organization personnel," she added. Oakley
said the decision to return Eagleton was not related to the
escape earlier this month of journalist Charles Glass from cap-
tors in Lebanon. "We've certainly expressed our appreciation
for the efforts that the Syrians made on behalf of Glass," she ex-
plained. "I don't think we had ever spelled out our problems with
Syria in terms of hostages, it was always in relationship to their
support of terrorism."

What Are Christian Children
Being Taught About Jews?
Continued from Page 3
Jewish people.
An acknowledgement by
Christians that Jews are in a
covenant relationship with
God, and a reconsideration of
the implications of this reality
for evangelism.
A determination by Chris-
tians to put an end to "the
teaching of contempt' for the
Jews.
A willingness to
acknowledge the continuing
significance of the promise of
the land (of Israel) to the peo-
ple of Israel.
A readiness to act on the
hope which Christians share
with Jews in God's promise of
a peaceable kingdom.
"YES, we think God is the
same," Perryman said. "One
of the Southern Baptists said,
five, 10 years ago that God
doesn't hear the prayers of
Jews. That would mortify the
Presbyterians. We just would
totally disagree. First of all, I
think God would hear the
prayer of an atheist, although I
don't put Jews in a category
with atheists. God is not own-
ed by Christians. God is free to
hear any prayer he wants."
Perryman said his church
still teaches that Jews are
God's chosen people. He adds,
"that because of Jesus Christ,
Christians are also God's
chosen people, and so Jews
don't have any longer an ex-
clusive claim on the title."
"The issue always comes
down to salvation. That's
where Southern Baptists make
it clear that we must accept
Jesus Christ as Lord and
savior in order to go to heaven.
We would not disagree with
that. But I would prefer to say
that every person who is saved
is saved by the grace of God."
FROM HIS days as a stu
dent in a seminary until pre-
sent, Perryman said he was
taught that Judaism "is a part
of who we are. The Jewish
tradition is our tradition as
well. And we are also followers
of Christ. Hebrew scriptures,
the Old Testament, are our
scriptures as well. Father
Abraham is my father too.
He's not just a father to the
Jews."
Perryman said the
Holocaust is "not taught ex-
plicitly" in his congregation.

"The Holocaust was about as
evil as anything we could com-
prehend, Perryman said.
"There would be great sym-
pathy for the people who were
both killed and survived the
Holocaust."
A central theme of the
Presbyterian Church is not to
limit God, according to
Perryman.
"God can offer the gift of
salvation to whomever he
pleases. And the God that we
personally know as best ex-
pressed in his son, Jesus
Christ, is not a stingy God.
He's a free-spender so far as
salvation is concerned. So for
me to run around limiting
whom God can love, or whom
God can hear the pravers of. is
to me just foolishness. I
don't fully understand God,
and that probably should be
my first affirmation of faith."
JIM BEST, pastor of the
North Dade Presbyterian
Church, which is not a member
of the Presbyterian USA
assembly, says: "We believe in
the one God and the trinity.
We believe that Jesus is the
Messiah, but essentially I
would say the God of
Abraham, Jacob and Issac is
my God.
"In regard to whether Jews
would go to heaven if they
don't accept Christ, I would
say any man or woman, Jew or
Gentile, as I understand the
scriptures, if they refuse to ac-
cept Christ as Lord and
Savior, they will go to hell.
And you have to keep in mind
that the New Testament is
essentially written by Jewish
men. Paul the Apostle was a
Jew; Peter and John were
Jews; so it is a Jewish testa-
ment concerning the life and
teachings of Jesus Christ."
Best believes his doctrine
teaches that the church in the
Old Testament is in the nation
of Israel. The New Testament
deals with an international
Church. "It's no longer a na-
tional church, but it's open to
include all people, and that
was foretold in the Old Testa-
ment. I have held, since
becoming a Christian, that the
Jew and Gentile has been link-
ed all along."
BEST ALSO teaches that
the covenant was not intended
just for Jews. "It has as its
purpose to include all people, I
would think at a certain point
that the Jews began to
misinterpret it. They failed to
see that there was a much
broader application that was
intended.
Best says he believes that
God has elected both Jews and
Gentiles in his plan of salva-
tion. Christians, he teaches,
should reach out to the Jewish
people in dialogue in an at-
tempt to win them to Christ.
"God's promises are still to the
Jews, and he believes they will
eventually be included in God's
kingdom because they will
turn to Christ."
A Jew should not be singled
out and held in contempt, Best
agrees.
"I would say the Jewish peo-
ple have a very specific place
in history. They have con-
tributed greatly to the culture
of the world. The old and new
Testaments are essentially
Jewish documents, and the
very religion that I subscribe
to comes from the minds of
Jewish people. So in that
respect I would speak highly of
them. We're very much in-
debted to them. Our savior is a
Jewish savior."
There is still only one way to
salvation, Best maintains.
"The litmus test is who ac-
cepts Christ, and who rejects
him."
REV. ROBERT M. Finch,
of the Kenneth C. Blitch
Methodist Church, says that
"if there's any people we
would feel a particular kinship
to, it would be the Jews .
our faith accepts basically
what a Torah Jew would ac-
cept, although there would be
slight differences in
understanding."
No Methodist child learns in
Sunday school that "Jews are
to be hated for what they did
to Our Savior," says Finch.
"There should be a love and
acceptance of the Jewish peo-
ple. It wasn't a people which
put Jesus on the cross. It was
sin, and sin includes all
mankind."
Regarding the Jewish peo-
ple's long history of trials and
tribulations, Finch asserts that
"we would certainly feel along
with what the Jewish people
have gone through with their
fight to be a people and a na-
tion, and we ought to be sup-
portive and not turn our backs
on them.
"We would not feel that they
were being punished for their
sins anymore than any other
person is punished for his
other sins," Finch adds.
AS TO THE issue of salva-
tion, Finch would leave the
matter "in the hands of a just
God, simply because we don't
know. There are those Chris-
tians who would say that
anyone who hasn't accepted
Christ as their personal savior
will go straight to hell. For us,
that would be a dangerous
statement."
Despite asserting that he
would want to be "loving and
non-judgmental, and not force
faith on anyone," Finch admits
that he would want to bring
Jews closer to Jesus.
"If anyone had a cure for a
disease like cancer, if they
didn't want to share that cure
with someone looking for it
that would be a terrible sin.
"So any Christian would
want to share his knowledge of
the personal savior with
anyone who didn't know it.
"I don't mean to say that be-
ing Jewish is like having
cancer," Finch amends, ex-
plaining that life at its most
hopeless can feel like a ter-
minal disease to any person
who does not have faith.
PASTOR NEAL Greatens
of the Concordia Lutheran
Church, asserts that "we try
to approach the issue (of Jews
in Christian teachings) in a
Christian sense. We are open,
and, I like to think, non-
prejudiced."
Yet there is no way a Jew
can enter the kingdom of
heaven without accepting
Jesus as the messiah, accor-
ding to Greatens. "Good works

do not get us into heaven," he
explains. "It's a gift from God,
that only he can give through
accepting Jesus as our lord and
savior. That's what scripture
says."
Says Greatens, "personally,
I would respond to any person,
whether they be Jew or Gen-
tile, who tells me that they do
not believe that Jesus is their
lord and savior, by having a lot
of care and concern for their
spiritual welfare."
Greatens would advise his
children to approach Jewish
children they might meet in
school "with love and accep-
tance, because although they
might not individually be able
to change their friends' faith,
they might be able to plant a
seed which the Holy Ghost
could later use."
Greatens does not believe,
however, that the Jews as a
people are responsible for the
crucifixion of Jesus, or that
their subsequent losses in the
Holocaust and in other tragic
historical events were divine
retribution.
"The sin of all people put
Jesus on the cross. We don't
teach that the Jews as a people
are responsible," Greatens af-
firms. "And although God
does allow trials and tribula-
tions for people, God does not
necessarily punish, because
we've all sinned. We all fall
short of God's glory."
FATHER TOBIN of St.
Thomas' Episcopalian Church
says that he cannot speak for
all Episcopalians or Anglicans,
but that at St. Thomas, "we
teach that the heart of the
gospel is not only love and ac-
ceptance of God, but love and
acceptance of others
therefore intolerance and re-
jection of others, no matter
what they might believe, is
intolerable."
Tobin responds to the ques-
tion of whether or not Jews
can get to heaven with a quota-
tion from the gospel according
to St. John, where Jesus tells
his apostles that in his house
there are many mansions.
"Which is to say that heaven
is, in terms of a spiritual reali-
ty, an enormous kingdom, and
therefore the way to the
kingdom is accessible to enor-
mous numbers of people,"
Tobin explains.
"It is clear that the gospels
and most Christian tradition
teaches that the way to the
father is through Jesus Christ.
It is equally clear that it is not
our concern who 'makes it' to
heaven or not. God is a
welcoming, accepting God,"
Tobin adds.
'The kingdom (of heaven) is
going to be more inclusive
than exclusive, and the gospel
of Jesus Christ is much more
concerned with how we live in
this world than in how we get
to the next."
WERE THE Jews as a peo-
ple responsible for Jesus'
death?
"It's very difficult, I think,
for anyone to make a case that
one people were solely respon-
sible for putting Jesus Christ
on the cross. The people of
Israel, the Romans, Judas, the
apostles all of creation were
responsible.
"The Jews today, are no
more accountable than you or
I. If a child from St. Thomas'
Episcopal Sunday or day
school went up to a Jewish
child (and accused the child of
killing Jesus) then we would
not have done our homework,"
Tobin asserts.
Tobin feels that the misfor-
tunes suffered by the Jews as a
people are not a form of divine
retribution.
"I would not say that
persecutions and anti-
Semitism are anything other
than evil, anti-God, and as far
as Christians are concerned,
anti-Christian," Tobin
contends.
"I CAN'T see how anyone
could justify it on any

grounds whatsoever. I think
that one could even make a
case that even though God
came into the world as Jesus
and messiah, there is still room
for the Jews as God's chosen
people ... I don't know, I
would have to study more,"
Tobin admits.
Theological differences bet-
ween the two faiths will per-
sist, but Tobin does not
necessarily feel that it is bad
that Christians and Jews will
have to work at continuing
their dialogue.
"There are no simple
answers. We're not looking for
formulas to plug into children
to turn them into spiritual
automotons. Jesus Christ died
to take away our sins, not our
minds, and we expect people to
struggle with questions of
faith, intellectually as well as
spiritually," he explains.
FATHER ELIAS of the
Greek Orthodox Church St.
Athanasios says that "the only
differences between Jews and
Christians is that Jews are
missing a link in the chain of
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and
Moses, that is, Jesus Christ."
It is as if a wife sent her hus-
band out to the store for
cheese, and he came back with
milk, saying, "here, make
cheese out of this," argues
Elias. Jews are milk, and
Christians are cheese.
Yet milk and cheese may
both be able to attain
salvation.
"Why should Jews go to
hell?" asks Elias. "That's such
nonsense. Christ made it clear
that if a person abides with
God, if he lives a good life, he
can go to heaven."

"There was a clan there, the
Pharisees, whose interests
were hurt by the new
teachings, and people are
quick to listen to bad counsel
. it's the easiest thing in the
world to mislead people," says
Elias.
WAS THE Holocaust, along
with other misfortunes in
Jewish history, punishment for
the* Jews' role in the
crucifixion?
"Once you do something
wrong, you have to pay for the
consequences. Unfortunately,
the Jews had to. It is unfair to
say that the Jews were punish-
ed by the Holocaust because it
hurts, but if you are in trouble,
try to find out what you did,
and then repent," says Elias,
whose father helped save
Jewish co-workers from the
Nazis in Greece during World
War II.
"I wouldn't use the Jews'
punishment for Christ's death
in a sermon, because it might
be misinterpreted," Elias con-
cedes, "but I might criticize ac-
tions non-religious Jews
mess around with the stock
market, and work to prevent
religious education, or to pre-
sent it in a stupid way."
"Jews are not 100 percent to
blame, though," Elias admits.
"Bad Christians are involved,
too."
IN The Jewish Floridian's
interviews, Father Elias, the
only non-Protestant spiritual
leader we talked to, came
closest to espousing Christian
principles that Jews have long
feared the most:
Jews "mess around" with
the stock market.
Jews are responsible for
the crucifixion "There was a
clan there, the Pharisees,
whose interests were hurt by
the new teachings.
The Holocaust was punish-
ment for the Jews' failure to
accept Jesus and their role in
the crucifixion "Once you do
something wrong, you have to
pay for the consequences."
But many of the Protestant
pastors and ministers came
close to this themselves,
although some were more
careful than others to shy
away from hewing to this
same, ancient line.
ENLIGHTENED Pro
testantism is the backbone of
America. Enlightened Pro-
testantism sparked the na-
tion's Founding Fathers. Do
these interviews reflect that
enlightened Protestantism
today?
Some Jews may well con-
sider otherwise and that they
must continue to fear for their
children's future if it is just as
their parents and grand-
parents did in earlier genera-
tions here and in Europe.
And that these children may
also reasonably expect to be
called "Christ-killer" at least
once before reaching their
adulthood.
Mass Pray In
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
The two Chief Rabbis and the
aged Hasidic Rabbi of Gur
were among Orthodox and
ultra-Orthodox figures who
took part Monday evening in a
mass pray-in at the Western
Wall against Sabbath desecra-
tion in Jerusalem. The turnout
many thousands was
somewhat less than the
organizers had hoped for but
nevertheless impressive. The
prayers ended with the soun-
ding of the shofar.

Off-Beat Cooking 'Hintz
From David Mintz
Friday, September 11, 1987/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 7
Jewish Journalist Tapped As
Next U.S. Envoy To Austria
David Mintz, the longtime
kosher caterer who invented
Tofutti while experimenting in
the back kitchen of his Third
Avenue take-out shop in
Manhattan, offers a few
unusual cooking tips from his
own New Jersey kitchen-
laboratory.
Away Fishy Odors: add 1
tablespoon deli mustard to 1
quart of water and let your fish
soak 10 to 15 minutes before
cooking to bring out the flavor
of the fish and get rid of any
fishy smell or taste.
Fruit Accents: Instead of
using MSG to add flavor to
foods, try applesauce yes,
applesauce. Mix a little ap-
plesauce into your next tuna
salad, for instance, for a more
highly flavored dish. You can
also try adding a tablespoon of
applesauce to a beaten egg the
next time you make breaded
chicken. Dip your flour-coated
chicken pieces in the egg mix-
ture for a richer tasting bird.
(Apples seem to provide a
natural "accent to replace the
commercial flavor enhancers
on the market.)
Fruit Toppers: Buy a bot-
tle of lecithin granules in your
neighborhood health food
store and dip your favorite
fruits into the granules before
munching. It's healthy and
tasty!
Tofu To You: Tofu is high
in protein and very versatile
easily stir-fried with veggies
for a quick, high-protein lunch
or dinner. Mintz suggests
spritzing a lemon on the tofu
block before slicing and
grating the lemon rind over
the slices before tossing into
the frying pan or wok to
enhance the flavor of the bean
curd and the vegetables.
David Mintz, creator of
Tofutti, has prepared special
traditional holiday sidedish
recipes.

WASHINGTON (JTA) Henry Grunwald was a teenager
when he fled his native Vienna in 1940 to escape Nazi occupa-
tion. Twenty-eight years later, he is expected to return to vienna
next year as the next U.S. Ambassador.
Although Grunwald, editor-in-chief of Time magazine, will
not be the first Jewish ambassador to Austria the current am-
bassador Ronald Lauder is also Jewish his background and the
current political situation in Austria makes Grunwald's nomina-
tion particularly significant. Last year the Austrians elected as
President Kurt Waldheim, the former Secretary General of the
United Nations, who has been accused of involvement in
atrocities while serving in the German Army from 1942 to 1945.
Earlier this year the Department of Justice placed Waldheim on
its "Watch List" of undesirable persons which bars him from en-
try into the U.S.
Grunwald, who was scheduled to retire from Time at the end
of the year, reportedly apparently resigned from Time last week.
He could not be reached for comment.
Does Glasnost Include Everyone But Jews?
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) To
what extent does glasnost
reach the Jews of the Soviet
Union? News out of Moscow
presents a disparate picture of
Soviet government openness.
Frequent stories of relaxation
of restrictions on demonstra-
tions are countered by reports
by Soviet Jewry activists and
recent Soviet Jewish emigres
that Jews are still being
harassed, and in fact even
more so than ever.
Specifically, a large
demonstration by Crimean
Tatars demanding repatriation
to their homeland went un-
challenged for four days two
weeks ago, and a notable con-
cert by American rock star Bil-
ly Joel made waves when the
audience broke into an un-
precedented frenzy of dancing
in the aisles and loud mer-
rymaking previously not per-
mitted in the Soviet Union.
Concertgoers themselves were
reportedly astonished by the
absence of usual Soviet restric-
tions on their behavior.
These reports of what ap-
pear to be large breaks with
the traditional Soviet security
tightness and threat of arrest
are countered by reports that
Jews demonstrating for
emigration or .even trying to
teach Hebrew are being
repressed as usual.
The National Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) reported
that former Prisoner of Cons-
cience Iosif Begun, freed in
February, has been again
denied the right to teach
Hebrew the "crime" for
which he was imprisoned. Yet
early this year, the Soviets
claimed that restrictions had
been lifted on the teaching: of

Hebrew, and Adolph
Shayevich, the "official" rabbi
of the Choral Synagogue in
Moscow, said during a New
York visit that Hebrew
teaching would henceforth be
permitted.
The Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry (SSSJ) reported
that seven-year refusenik
Sergei Getchkov, in the 19th
day of a hunger strike, along
with other Jews who sup-
ported him were beaten by
about 70 "hooligans" perceiv-
ed to be KGB call-ups who
shouted anti-Semitic slogans
as the Jews demonstrated at
the Lenin Library in Moscow.
Police told the Jews that they
could not maintain order and
that they should therefore go
home. The Jews, however, re-
mained, and "were then at-
tacked by the bystanders, who
are evidently connected with
the KGB," the SSSJ said.
SSSJ national coordinator
Glenn Richter said that par-
ticipants in a public memorial
June 10 for the late cancer pa-
tient refusenik Yuri Shpeiz-
man were arrested and some
of them fined. (Shpeizman died
of a heart attack May 10 upon
arrival in Vienna without see-
ing his daughter or grand-
children in Israel.)
Richter said: "Certainly to-
day, under glasnost, there
have been more demonstra-
tions and there have been
several demonstrations
without harassment. But the
problem is that the form may
have slightly changed, but the
substance, which is 'nyet,' has
not. Today, 90 percent of
Soviet Jews cannot even apply
to emigrate. One can certainly
understand how clever the
Soviet glasnost campaign has
been regarding Jews.'-
In June, when a state-
sanctioned Russian Yiddish
musical theater troupe toured
North America, Richter and
some others demonstrated
quietly outside the Symphony
Space theater in Manhattan
where the Jewish Cameo
Music Theatre was perform-
ing. Richter requested an in-
terview with the Soviets film-
ing the crowd outside "in the
name of glasnost," and they
apparently complied
somewhat, Richter said,
because Jews in the Soviet
Union saw him on television,
he told JTA.
However, the interview was
edited, he said, cutting out
much of the sound portion in
which Richter "thanked Soviet
TV for permitting me to speak
and very carefully describe in
non-confrontational language
why we were out there. The
announcer simply said I was
part of the Zionist agitators."
Several Soviet emigres who
have been asked in various in-
stances what glasnost means
for the Jews did not even know
the word, which is not part of
the common working-class
vocabulary. Grigory Geishis, a
26-year-old former Prisoner of
Conscience from Leningrad
who arrived in Israel in June
with his family and who was at
the NCSJ press conference,
said, "It's very difficult for us
to understand, because it's a
Western word."
He said that there is much
public anti-Semitism in the
USSR now, mentioning
Pamyat, the "Memory Socie-
ty," which openly makes anti-
Jewish statements and which
recently met with a high
Soviet official. "Pamyat's pre-
Revolutionary roots have
brought out some of the most
anti-Semitic elements,"
Geishis said. He added that on
April 21 Hitler's birthday
80 tombstones were destroyed
at the Leningrad Jewish
Cemetery.
He recalled his brother-in-
law, who was rejected as a can-
didate for the Leningrad
Medical School in a derogatory
letter which referred to him as
"Abramovich," a patronym in-
dicating he was a child of the
Jewish forefather, Abraham.
Geishis underlined that Jews
were frequently turned down
by universities in the Soviet
Union, the reason that most
Soviet Jews are graduates of
various "institutes" which
educate to a level considerably
lower than the universities.

cond worst rate of drop-outs in
the nation.
"As a state, we have not
spent enough money on poor
families and children, and
that's where the vast majority
of drop-outs come from," he
explains.
"We need to pay more atten-
tion to the students who are at
risk," says Chiles, who agrees
that the large percentage of
new immigrants in Florida,
and the resultant language
problems, are factors in this
state's high drop-out rate.
"I think that bilingual educa-
tion is very neccessary,"
states Chiles, "but the goal of
bilingual education should very
definitely be English proficien-
cy, otherwise you are not do-
ing people a favor.
"I also don't think it's the
taxpayers's responsibility to
promote another culture,
whether it be Haitian, Irish,
Spanish <>r anything else. The
melting pot idea has been
healthy for this country, and if
people want to maintain
separate cultural itentities,
that's the role of the family
and the community," Chiles
maintains.
Foreign Aid is often one of
the first items politicians sug-
gest be cut when discussing
how to reduce the national
deficit, which worries many
American Jews, as Israel is the
largest recipient of U.S.
Foreign Aid.
Chiles, who proposes that all
programs "share some of the
pain" of reducing the deficit,
supports the tradition of a
large Foreign Aid package to
Israel.
The amount, he says, that
Israel receives is "high in
dollars, l>ut as a percentage of
the gross national product, the
terms are not high.
"We don't quarter troops in
the Middle East, and we don't
quarter troops in Israel,
because we have a valuable al-
ly there. We spend a hell of a
lot of money in Europe where
we have to have troops station-
ed. I think that if you equate
those things, the aid package
to Israel ($300 billion) is not as
expensive as it looks in
numbers."
What was expensive,
however was the Israeli Lavi
fighter jet, which was suppos-
ed to go into production in
Israel hut never got off the
ground because of cost over-
runs, and American pressure
to cancel plans for the Israeli-
made and designed planes.
Was there any hidden agen-
da in the American pressure
on Israel to discontinue plans
to produce the Lavi, as oppos-
ed to modifying American
made fighterjets?
"I don't see a hidden agen-
da," says Chiles. "It's in
Israel's interests to have the
closer partnership with the
United States."
But isn't Israel now depen-
dent upon the United States
for arms, while the United
States also sells advanced
weapons to countries who are
Israel's adversaries?
"Had the Lavi fighter jet
been able to stand on its own,
nothing would have been bet-
ter than to have Israel develop
it But when it got to the point
where all this was being done
totally at our expense, that's
something else," Chiles
contends.
"We can't pay for the cost
overruns of our own weapons
systems,' Chiles points out. "It
was a pit that didn't seem to
have a bottom."
President Reagan, known in
the early years of his Ad-
ministration for being a strong
proponent of building up the
country's defense system, has
spent more and more time
negotiating with the Russians
over a possible arms control
agreement.
"The Russians know that the
president is having some im-
age problems now and they are
taking advantage of a
weakness in the Administra-
tion. They sense that the presi-
dent wants to be known in
history books as the person
who got a major arms control
aggreement," says Chiles.
"He no longer has the same
strength of position here, but
the Russians can negotiate for
years, because that's the way
their minds work. If something
happends 50 or 100 years from
now, that's fine with them.
Americans want something
tangible now, and that's the
reason why I think you have to
look very carefully at the kind
of agreement they come up
with," Chiles contends.
"They're going to trade
harder," he adds.
Chiles, who says that he has
"always been in favor of direct
negotiations," when it comes
to the Middle East Peace Pro-
cess, sees no reason to include
the Soviet Union in an interna-
tional conference for Middle
East Peace.
"It would just raise their
status," he explains.
One area where Chiles is in
agreement with President
Reagan is on the subject of aid
to the Contras, although, he
allows, there have been
mistakes made in terms of the
United States' approach to the
issue.
"I find a lot wrong with our
policies there that we never re-
quired the Contras to speak as
a single voice, that we have
been dealing with four groups
instead of one. We didn't re-
quire the kind of accountability
for funds that we should,"
Chiles admits.
"There are some bad guys
with the Contras, running
drugs and the like, other
things, and I think that we fail-
ed to bring them together and
insist that they behave like a
government in exile ought to
behave, like they're prepared
to win and run the country,"
says Chiles.
"If they are just a rag-tag
bunch of people down there
shooting up some villages,
they are not going to win a lot
of support that way," com-
ments Chiles wryly.
"With all of that, the San-
dinistas are a Marxist group
who are consolidating power
and exporting revoluton, they
are puppets of the Russians
and the Cubans and are caus-
ing trouble in Costa Rica,
Guatemala, the Honduras and
El Salvador.
The only way I see to
restrain them them is to put
some outside pressure on them
and try to get some democratic
countries in the region to
An Explanation Of The Festival
Of Sukkot For Non Jews
By RABBI
SAMUEL M. SILVER
From his book, Explaining
Judaism to Jews and Christians
Sukkot is history's first
Thanksgiving Day.
Ordained in the Bible
(Leviticus, Chaper 23), Sukkot
originally was the Jewish
farmer's thank-you for the
autumn harvest.
The holiday also recalls that
during the 40-year trek from
the Land of Bondage to the
Land of Promise the Israelites
dwelt in frail shelters and were
protected by divine
providence.
In commemoration of that
care it is customary for Jews
to build near homes and
synagogues little huts, or lean-
tos (tabernacles) and to spend
some time in them to recall the
plight of those who lack proper
domiciles.
The Hebrew word, sukkah,
means hut, or tent. Sukkot is
the plural. Open at the top, the
sukkah is bedecked with the
fruits and foliage of the fall
season. Holding a palm (lulav)
in one hand and a citron
(etrog) in the other, the
celebrant thanks the Lord for
His benefactions.
At the synagogue services
prayers, songs and sermons
stress the theme of gratitude.
The American Thanksgiving
Day is a transplant from Scrip-
tures via the Pilgrims of the
festival of Sukkot.
Longest of the Jewish
holidays, Sukkot concludes on
its 9th day with an event called
Rejoicing over the Moral Law
(Simchat Torah) in which the
last words of the Pentateuch
are read and are followed at
once by the opening words of
Genesis, to dramatize the
endlessness of God's word.
In 1987, Sukkot begins at
sundown, Wednesday, Oct. 7.
In 1988, it will begin at sun-
down, Sunday, Oct. 25.
reach some sort of accord with
them," he concludes.
But Chiles does not feel that
Reagan's decision to place
American flags on Kuwaiti
tankers in the Persian Gulf
was thought through enough.
"I disasgreed with the way
we took action, without explor-
ing the situation a lot more and
determining what the conse-
quences would be," says
Chiles.
'Now that the decision has
been made, I think we have to
back it up. Our problem in the
Middle East today is that we
flip-flop around too much. We
said it was in our strategic in-
terest to put marines in
Lebanon we should still be
there, although I don't think
that we should have had our
troops there to begin with.
"Now we've said that flagg-
ing those ships in the Persian
Gulf is in our best interests
because of the oil in the region,
and yet the price of oil was
cheaper then than it is now,"
Chiles observes.
Will the flagging of the
Kuwaiti tankers lead armed
conflict between Iran and the
United States?
"I hope not," says Chiles.
"We have to push for the
United States to place
sanctions."
Senator Chiles, who was an
undergraduate at the Univer-
sity of Florida, where he also
graduated from law school,
was first elected to the United
States Senate in 1970, when
he was known as "Walkin'
Lawton," for the 1,013 miles
walk he took across the state
while campaigning.
Recalling his 91-day trek
from the small town of Cen-
tury near the Alabama border
to Key Largo, Chiles says that
he learned two main things
from the experience.
"I learned to listen, because
it's easier to get company if
you're a listener rather than a
talker. And I learned that peo-
ple around this state are more
similar than dissimilar. You
think that people in North
Florida are different from peo-
ple in South Florida, but
they're not. They have the
same aspirations and goals,
and the same fears," says
Chiles.
After 17 years in the Senate,
"Walkin Lawton" is not yet
ready to put up his feet and
take a rest; in 1988, when he
will be up for election again, he
plans a fourth term.
Exhibition Of Judaica
Magazine Profits To Finance
PHILADELPHIA (JTA) Profits from the sale of
"Welcome" a new, glossy magazine devoted to next week's
Pope John Paul IPs visit to America will be used to help
finance a traveling exhibition of Judaica from the Vatican
Library, it was announced by Albert Wood, a spokesperson for
the National Committee for the Vatican Judaica Exhibition. A
number of U.S. Catholic charities will also benefit from sales of
the publication. The Vatican Judaica Exhibition contains Jewish
manuscripts produced between the 8th and 18th Centuries. The
works are on loan from the Vatican Library's collection of 800
Judaica manuscripts. A chapter in "Welcome" is devoted to the
exhibition. The Pope is scheduled to bless the exhibition, which is
now showing at the Miami Center for the Fine Arts, in Miami on
Sept. 10.

substantially toward educa-
tional and cultural institutions.
These include nine public
libraries in Israel which bear
his name, and, in Baltimore,
the renowned Joseph
Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and
the main auditorium in the
Baltimore Museum of Art. All
are testimony to his concern
for the quality of life and his
generosity.
Harvey M. Meyerhoff is
chairman of the U.S.
Holocaust Memorial Council,
and Mrs. Katz' husband
Herbert is a member of the
Council. "The auditorium
which will be named for our
father will be a special place of
education and public involve-
ment within a Museum where
those attributes are basic,"
Meyerhoff said.
Expressing the Council's
thanks for the gift, Acting Ex-
ecutive Director David Weins-
tein said, "We hope the
Meyerhoff generosity will
move many others to make or
increase their own gifts. We
have made great progress, but
we have a long way yet to go.
Mr. Meyerhofr and Mrs. Katz,

Meyerhoff Memorial Trusts,
have our deepest gratitude.
May their enthusiasm for the
Museum communicate itself to
others."

HADASSAH
Doris Perlman, Shalom
Delray Chapter of Hadassah,
has been named a winner of
the National Hadassah
Leadership Award announced
Hadassah national president
Ruth W. Popkin at the
organization's 73rd National
Convention in Baltimore.
"Doris Perlman has
demonstrated the commit-
ment, compassion and
dedicated leadership ex-
emplified by the life and work
of Henrietta Szold, Hadassah's
founder," Popkin said in an-
nouncing the award.
"It is a privilege to honor her
with this award for her service
to her people, her community
and Hadassah."
Perlman, a founding presi-
dent of the chapter, is present-
ly working on membership. A
life member, she has belonged
to Hadassah since childhood,
as a Hadassah Bud and Junior
Hadassah member. She has
held almost every position in
both this chapter and in her
former chapter of Huntingdon,
L.I., where she also served as
president.
Perlman fills in wherever
and whenever needed, with or
without titles. Her interest in
Zionism and Hadassah is
familial, since Rose Blondheim
(nee James), one of the foun-
ding members of Hadassah,
was her second cousin.

VILLAGES OF
ORIOLE
B'NAI B'RITH
Jacob Lodge No. 3246
Dr. Edward Kingsley, West
Delray, B'nai B'rith Jacob
Lodge No. 3246 Program Vice
President, has spent the sum-
mer months developing the
theme "Information About
Jews And Judaism-Issues In
Modern Jewish Life" with the
four Pulpit Rabbis in Delray
area. This has resulted in the
finalizing of plans for an un-
precedented, historic Forum
to take place on Tuesday, Oct.
20, 7:30 p.m. at Temple
Emeth, on West Atlantic Ave.,
Delray Beach.
The Forum, the first of its
kind, will present to members
of Synagogues and to some
75,000 unaffiliated Jews in the
Delray-Boca Raton area, the
spiritual leaders of the respec-
tive Synagogues in a new
light. Because religious ser-
vices in House of Worship are
held at the same time,
members of one Synagogue
rarely have an opportunity to
see and hear other Rabbis
deliver Sermons or conduct
discussions.
Having visited and confer-
red with the Rabbis, Dr.
Kingsley has evolved for each
Rabbi a topic that will tie in
with the general Forum
theme, and he predicts that
the seminar will be intellec-
tually stimulating and
spiritually refreshing for those
members of the community
who attend.
There will be a question and
answer period from the
audience.
The invitation to attend the
Oct. 20 Forum is also extended
to the Officers and Members of
the 65 Organizations in this
community area.

Styne Makes Music, And The Party Continues
-;
By GERKY MORRIS
Everything is still coming up
"music" for composer-
producer Jule Styne, who has
23 entries in the Broadway
sweepstakes, including lilting
scores for "High Button
Shoes," "Two on the Aisle,"
"Mr. Wonderful," "Fade Out,
Fade In," "Funny Girl,"
"Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,"
"Gypsy," and "The Bells are
Ringing."
The most prolific and suc-
cessful post-war tunesmith on
Broadway, Styne ranks
alongside Jerome Kern, Cole
Porter, Harold Arlen, Richard
Rodgers and Irving Berlin as
one of the most important
composers in modern musical
theater.
Thumbing through his hit
songs is a melodic trip through
time: "It's Magic,"
"Everything's Coming Up
Roses," "It's Been a Long,
Long Time" and many more.
Add to that the scores for 20
movies.
Styne was bom 81 years ago
in London's East End ghetto
to Orthodox Jewish parents.
He grew up in a home filled
with cantorial and classical
music, but his addiction to the
greasepaint world soon
surfaced.
At age three he bounded on
the stage of the Hippodrome
and sang a duet with Sir Harry
Lauder, the Scottish enter-
tainer. At age eight Jule mov-
ed with his family to Chicago,
where he showed unusual
pianistic talents.
"At eight-and-a-half years of
age I won a scholarship, and at
nine I was a guest soloist with
the Chicago Symphony," he
said.
But, he smilingly recalled, he
had other, less popular
endeavors. "My father wasn't
exactly thrilled over my suc-
cess as a songwriter. He would
say, 'I never paid for you to be
a composer. I paid for you to
be a concert pianist.' He would
tell people, 'You ought to have
heard him play when he was
eight years old.' Then he'd say,
'Play something I can like,''
he said.
Styne lost the sense of touch
in an index finger after a
serious accident, and it was
then that his interest moved
seriously toward popular
music. He played piano in Ben
Pollack's orchestra that in-
cluded Benny Goodman, Glenn
Miller and other jazz immor-
tals, after which he organized
his own jazz band.
It was the age of
speakeasies, bootlegging and
mob rule, and Chicago was
wild. "Listen, whatever music
I write, whatever musical in-
tuition I have, it was all made
in Chicago. I've drawn on
Chicago for show after show.
There was Louis Armstrong,
Jack Teagarden, Eddie Con-
don, Harry James, Gene
Krupa, Muggsy Spanier, Bix
Beiderbeck, Earl Hines,
George Wettling and Charlie
Spivak. Never before and
never since has so much
musical talent been gathered
in any one spot on earth at any
one period. It was a feast," he
said.
A move to Hollywood
brought a job at 20th Century
Fox as a vocal coach for Alice
Faye, Tony Martin and Shirley
Temple. He then landed a job
at Republic Pictures writing
for Roy Rogers and Gene
Autry. "I wrote five or six
songs for each picture. I wrote
country and western music. I
wrote music for cattle and
mules and pigs and dogs. I did
just about everything I was
asked to do," he recalled.
In the 1930's and 40's he
churned out a raft of movie
credits, pairing most notably
with the talented and ir-
repressible lyricist Sammy
Cahn. In 1948 they parted, but
were reunited long enough to
win the 1954 Academy Award
for "Three Coins in the
Fountain."
"I've had a lot of great fun
with Sammy. We had fights,
we hated each other, we made
up. Now we're good friends,"
he said.
Asked why theater has
always been his foremost pas-
sion, he matter-of-factly
responded: "I found it a free
medium where I could write
what I wanted to write. In
Hollywood you were a
songwriter, but in New York
you were a composer."
Styne and Cahn first invad-
ed Broadway theater in 1947
with the smash success "High
Button Shoes." Highlights of
his career include his teaming
with lyricist Leo Robin for
"Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,"
which made a star of saucer-
eyed Carol Channing. Her ren-
dition of "Diamonds Are a
Girl's Best Friend" became a
permanent credo for devious
gold-diggers. "The Bells Are
Ringing" was another tower-
ing home run for Styne; this
time he was wedded to lyric
and book writers Comden and
Green.
About this time Stvne's
obsession with gambling found
him dancing on the proverbial
edge. He was a well-known
big-stakes horse player. The
racing form is no longer his
favorite form of reference. "I
just slip across the street occa-
sionally to bet six bucks across
the board at the Off-Track Bet-
ting Shop," he said with a
mischievous twinkle in his eye.
He may not have made the
winner's circle very often at
the track, but he sure paraded
some great entries on Broad-
way which, in the 1950's and
60's, continued to break the
tape ahead of the field. "Gyp-
sy" was the crowning achieve-
ment of Styne's career a lov-
ingly crafted work which prov-
ed that Styne was a dramatic
composer on par with Broad-
way's best.
