Baker Proposes Plan To Revive Talks
JERUSALEM (JTA) U.S. Secretary of
State James Baker has sent the foreign minis-
ters of Israel and Egypt a five-point plan aimed
at reviving Egyptian-brokered negotiations
between Israeli and Palestinian delegations.
The move comes after Israel's Inner Cabinet
deadlocked 6-6 along party lines in a vote on
Egypt's invitation to host preliminary Israeli-
Palestinian negotiations in Cairo. A tie vote is
by law a negative one.
The American plan, which was transmitted in
writing, calls for Israeli-Palestinian talks in
Cairo, based on Israel's May 14 plan for Pales-
tinian elections in the West Bank and Gaza
It suggests consultations among Israel, Egypt
and the United States over the composition of
the Palestinian delegation to participate in such
talks. And it specifically proposes that the
foreign ministers of Israel and Egypt come to
Extreme Right Wing Gains In German Vote
BONN (JTA) The extreme
right-wing Republican Party
made new inroads this week in
local elections in North Rhine-
Westphalia, West Germany's
most populous state, much to
the dismay of those who consi-
der the party neo-Nazi.
The Munich-based party,
headed by former SS official
Franz Schoenhuber, did best in
the largest cities.
In Cologne, the Republicans
won eight percent of the popu-
lar vote, taking seats in the
city council formerly held by
the Free Democratic Party, a
member of the federal govern-
ing coalition.
In Dusseldorf, the state capi-
tal, the Republicans scored s>
percent, which gives them
important leverage consider-
ing the delicate balance of
power there between the gov-
erning Christian Democratic
Union and opposition Social
Democratic Party.
Leaders of the mainstream
parties in Dusseldorf and else-
where promptly vowed never
to enter coalitions with the
But observers wonder how
long that resolve will last if the
alternative is to relinquish
The Republicans followed a
shrewd strategy, fielding can-
didates only in those localities
where they couid muster suffi-
cient manpower and resources
to build organizations to mobil-
ize support.
Statewide, they did poorly,
winning a mere 2.5 percent of
the votes cast.

Helping The Elderly
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.
NEW YORK The Council
of Jewish Federations has pre-
pared a folio of five brochures
as part of its first nationwide
effort to help educate elderly
Jews and their families about
the problems of long-term
health care.
To date, 4,000 folios have
been printed and some 400
have been distributed, as a tool
for professional and lay lead-
ers of federations "who
require more knowledge on
this complex topic," said
Eileen Wolpert, coordinator
for the project who researched
and wrote the brochures.
CJF is the umbrella agency
for some 200 federations, wel-
fare funds and Jewish com-
munity councils, the key fund-
raising and distribution agen-
cies of the Jewish community.
Wolpert told the Jewish Tel-
egraphic Agency that the folio
has been sent to the Jewish
Welfare Board, the central
agency for Jewish community
centers; to the Association of
Jewish Family and Children's
Services; and to the North
American Jewish Homes and
Housing for the Aged.
A key theme of the bro-
chures is that there is a wides-
&read misconception that
(edicare helps provide facilit-
ies for long- term care. Many
families learn this is untrue
only when forced to consider
sucn care.
The brochure on financing
says that one in five American
Jews will enter a nursing home
for long-term care at some
point, and that one in three
over 85 "will need some assis-
tance on a daily basis to get
through the day," which is
equivalent to long-term care.
The brochure, entitled
"Handbook for Long Term
Care," cites the growing
national debate over providing
such services through a
national insurance program.
The debate has been intensi-
fied by protests of the elderly
against the surtax on income
tax to pay for the benefits of
the Medicare Catastrophic
Protection Act.
The handbook recommends'
advocacy of federal long-term
care legislation by the Jewish
community because in the abs-
ence of such legislation, the
costs of long-term care can
quickly pauperize a couple, the
brochure noted.
Couples must "spend down"
their life savings and relin-
quish much of their monthly
income so that the spouse
receiving the long-term care
can qualify for payment of
those charges by Medicaid, the
national program for federal
health care for the poor which
is administered by the states.
The handbook concludes that
"a comprehensive service and
financing system that assures
the availability of long-term
care for all who require such
care has yet to be developed,
legislated or implemented.
"The need for such a pro-
gram is acute and will become
even greater over the next
decade as the proportion of the
elderly in the population
The other brochures in the
folio cover such topics as Long
Term Care: The Facts; Edu-
cating Your Community About
Long Term Care; The Pur-
chasing of Long Term Care
Insurance: A Guide; and The
Financing of Long Term Care.

Should Jewish
Tank Sales?
The organized Jewish com-
munity has not yet decided
whether to make an all-out
fight against the Bush admin-
istration's plan to sell 315
Abrams tanks to Saudi Arabia.
"We are opposed to the
sale," Malcolm Hoenlein, exec-
utive director of the Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organiza-
tions, said. "We have not yet
made a decision on strategy."
But there is little sentiment
in the Jewish community, Con-
gress or within the Israeli gov-
ernment for a "knockdown,
drag-out fight," a Capitol Hill
source said.
The Bush administration has
not officially notified Congress
of the sale of the Ml-Al tanks,
which are expected to cost
about $1.5 bUlion. But Israeli
officials, Congress and Jewish
leaders have been told by the
administration that it plans to
go ahead with the sale.

Swift Action Saves Famed Talmuds
weeks ago, in Miami Beach, a
Talmudic scholar was called by
a Jewish funeral director and
told that several sets of Stein-
saltz Talmuds had been deliv-
ered to the funeral home for
burial, in keeping with a ban
on the writings of Rabbi Adin
Steinsaltz that had been pub-
licly enunciated by Rabbi Elea-
zar Shach of Israel.
The rabbi, to his credit and
good sense, jumped into his car
and saved the Steinsaltz Tal-
muds from burial and distri-
buted them to eager students.
If it weren't so tragic, the
whole thing would be very
funny. During the three weeks
before Tisha b'Av, when Jews
all over the world were recal-
ling how internecine hatred
brought about the destruction
of the Second Temple, a great
rabbinic leader in Israel wrote
a public letter denouncing a
sage like Steinsaltz for writing
"minus" (forbidden sectarian
thoughts), "apikorsus" (atheis-
tic thoughts), heresy and
words which allegedly dis-
graced the Torah.
Result was a repetition of a
hideous scene in 13th centurv
France, when a learned tal-
mudist denounced Maimonides
for having written the Guide
for the Perplexed with the
result that copies of the Guide
were burned.
Maimonides, of course, sur-
vived, but the learned talmud-
ist's name has been forgotten
and remains only as a brief
footnote in Jewish historical
His obscurity is fully justi-
fied. Normative Judaism has
never encouraged book ban-
nings or burnings. The way to
inspire people religiously has
always been to follow the path
of Aaron: love peace, pursue
peace, love people and bring
them close to Torah.

Festival For Rejoicing
(Copyright 1989,
Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Inc.)
NEW YORK Simchat
Torah, the Festival for Rejoic-
ing with the Torah, is a
remarkable balance wheel in
the mental health of the Jew-
ish people.
Preceded by the observance
of Yom Kippur, with its fast-
ing and repentance, one could
conclude superficially that
Judaism is a somber, self-
denying faith that requires
ascetic retreat from the world.
Sukkot, which begins Oct.
19, climaxed by Shemini
Atzeret, Oct. 21, and Simchat
Torah, Oct. 22, are festivals
radiant with joy and celebra-
tion centered on recommit-
ment to the Torah.
On the eve of Simchat
Torah, gaiety fills the syna-
gogue as the Torah scrolls are
taken out of the ark. Each
scroll is carried around the
bimah, or pulpit, at least seven
times, and each adult carries
one around once.
The seven circuits, the rab-
bis observe, suggest that just
as Joshua encircled the walls
of Jericho seven times and
they collapsed, so the walls of
hatred and misunderstanding
should collapse.
The hakofot, the circling
procession, on Shemini
Atzeret, the eighth evening,
prepares for the next day of
Simchat Torah, when the last
verses and then the opening
verses of the Chumash, the
Five Books of Moses, are read,
thus beginning the yearly cycle
of the Torah reading.
All over the world on these
festive days, with the same
prayers and the same intona-
tions, Jews rejoice over the
Torah and renew their loyalty
to the Covenant as the core of
their Jewish existence.

ant to the American Jewish
Committee and is immediate

rejected suggestions that the
United States play a more

what Shach has tried to do to
Steinsaltz. First, Steinsaltz is
in truth a disciple of Aaron. He
is a gentle, pious man with a
twinkle in his eye who attracts
people with his brilliance and
warmth. He loves Jews; he
rarely criticizes them, and
then only with a smile.
He was charged by Rabbi
Shach with treating our fore-
fathers in the Bible and Tal-
mud with irreverence: "He
dares to speak in the most
humiliating fashion of the
Avos regarding whose
exalted level and depth of
knowledge we can have no
A reader of Steinsaltz's writ-
ings must respectfully disag-
ree. The Avos are treated by
him not irreverently but
humanly. Adin Steinsaltz, no
less than the Torah itself, dis-
cusses some of their human
failings. This makes the heroes
of the Bible more believable to
us, less angelic and, therefore.

If King David sinned in con-
nection with Batsheva, that
merely revealed a human
weakness. What made David
great was his ability to accept
rebuke from Nathan the Pro-
phet and, rather than turn on
Nathan as he could have in his
capacity as a potent monarch,
he cringed before the Prophet
and repented his wrongdoing.
David is a hero precisely
because he is human and has
failings. During this season of
penitence, we often speak in
our prayers about the great-
ness of King David's penit-

your name on this $100 check

Trying to plan a funeral
at a time when your grief is
overwhelming may keep you from making
the best decisions. That's why Levitt-
Weinstein offers the Guaranteed Security
Plan.. .the pre-arrangement program
that allows you time to plan, the funeral
and burial, freezes the cost at today's
prices and relieves you or your family
of taking care of everything at a very
difficult time.
And as an incentive to
plan now, Levitt-Weinstein
will write your name on a $100
check and apply it to a new Guaranteed
Security Plan pre-arrangement program
for you. And if you currently hold a pre-
need plan other than GSP, we will be
pleased to evaluate whether it best serves
your needs. Our WOO offer is valid only
through October 31,1989.
