Menorah Found On Jars Unearthed At Sepphoris
Jerusalem For the first
time, the seven-branched men-
orah one of Judaism's most
ancient symbols has been
found inscribed on the sides of
clay storage jar fragments.
The fragments, dating back to
the Roman era, were discov-
ered in excavations conducted
this summer at Sepphoris in
the Galilee by archaeologists
from the Hebrew University of
Jerusalem and Duke Univer-
sity of Durham, N.C.
Although the menorah has
never before been found
inscribed on pottery jars, say
the archaeologists, the symbol
often shows up on many struc-
tures and artifacts of Jewish
antiquity, going back to
Roman times, such as oil
lamps, sarcophagi and mosaic
floors.
Appearance of the menorah
on the jars indicates, according
to the archaeologists, that the
vessels were probably not
meant for ordinary use but
may have served some special
purpose in association with
one or more of the 18 syna-
gogues reputed to have been
located in Sepphoris.
Sepphoris, also known by its
Roman name of Diocaesarea
or its Hebrew name of Zippori,
Clay storage jar fragments found in Sepphoris clearly show the
menorah (oil lamp) design, the first time that this widely used
Jewish .symbol has been found on clay jars in an archaeological
excavation in Israel.
is located just west of Nazar-
eth. It was at one time an
important center of pagan,
Jewish and early Christian set-
tlement, serving as the home
of the Sanhedrin, the central
body of Jewish legal and spiri-
tual life during the Roman
period. It also was the home
for 17 years of Rabbi Judah
Hanasi (Judah the Prince),
patriarch and leader of the
Sanhedrin and codifier of the
Mishna in the third century

Chanukah In Germany
By ARNOLD GEIER
December 25, 1938 was a
glorious day. The world cele-
brated Christmas, and even
the Germans we had encoun-
tered that morning seemed
almost mellow. A small seg-
ment of humanity would cele-
brate the last day of Chanukah
that evening, and our little
family also celebrated a most
important event we were
finally on our way out of Ger-
many, headed toward a new
life in the "Golden Land," the
U.S.A.
We had survived every
measure the Hitler regime had
contrived against the Jews,
including the recent Kristall-
nacht, and finally had received
our passport to freedom, an
American visa.
Now, on this sunny but chilly
day, we sat quietly in a second
class compartment of the train
that had left Berlin early that
morning and was due to arrive
in Holland later that night.
Two stern Germans shared the
compartment with my father,
mother, my 15-year-old sister,
and me.
I was twelve. We children
peered out the window and
occupied ourselves with chat-
ter about the sights racing by.
Papa was deep in thought and
Mama interrupted her reading
from time to time to whisper
to him. I overheard her reas-
suring my father, a Cantor and
an orthodox Jew, that, under
these circumstances, God
would surely forgive him for
having to ignore the last day of
Chanukah.
The journey was uneventful.
We ate the sandwiches Mama
had prepared, we dozed, we
stretched our legs with occa-
sional walks to adjoining cars,
we chatted quietly so the Ger-
mans in our compartment
would not be angered, and we
watched the time drag by ever
so slowly.
After darkness settled
gently over the countryside,
the train slowed and puffed its
way into a special railway sta-
tion at the German-Dutch bor-
der, its brakes squealing and
hissing as it jerked to a stop.
We braced ourselves for our
final encounter with German
police, Nazis, and Gestapo.
Freedom was close at hand. A
bit more time and a few more
miles and our old lives were
over. No matter what was
ahead, it surely would be bet-
ter.
The train sat in the station
for an almost-endless ten min-
utes while we watched teams
of Border Police officers and
Gestapo agents organizing
themselves with typical Ger-
man efficiency on the platform
for the task of checking every-
one's passport and travel
papers. Finally, small groups
began to climb aboard. Papa
looked tense and broke out in a
sweat. I was afraid.
At that instant, without a
flicker of warning, every light
in the station and on the train
went out. The area was pitch
black. Noises of confusion and
alarm cut through the black-
ness. Several people struck
matches and their eerie and
frightened faces suddenly
sprang from the darkness,
casting ghostly shadows, and
quickly disappeared with the
flame. I wanted to scream, but
I didn't.
Papa suddenly stood up,
groped around the luggage
rack above him, pulled down
his overcoat, and reached into
one of its pockets and pulled
out a small packet. He gently
pushed me away from the win-
dow, struck a match, lit a
candle, and, using its flame,
slowly and deliberately,
warmed the bottoms of eight
other Chanukah candles and
C.E. Th> city is believed to
have reached its apogee after
many Jews fled northward fol-
lowing the second Jewish
revolt against the Romans
(132-135 C.E.).
For the Roman rulers, Sep-
phoris was a provincial
governmental and cultural
center. The city is believed to
have been destroyed by an
earthquake in 363 C.E.
This year marked the fifth
season oi excavations at Sep-
phoris and coincided with the
opening of a new pavilion at
the Israel Museum to house
the splendid mosaic floor
found in the excavations two
years ago and subsequently
picked up and loaned to the
museum. The mosaic, showing
scenes from Dionysus and
other aspects of life in anti-
quity, is best known for its
beautiful female figure,
dubbed the "Mona Lisa of the
Galilee."
Austria Compensates
Nazi Victims
By ELENA NEUMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) After
decades of intractability on the
question of compensation to
victims of Nazi crimes, the
Austrian Parliament passed
legislation which will enable
Jews forced to flee Austria to
receive social security bene-
fits.
The 48th Amendment to the
Austrian Social Insurance Law
will make it possible for Holo-
caust survivors who were born
in Austria before 1930 eight
years prior to the Anschluss
to claim social security bene-
fits.
Whereas previous legislation
had set the cut-off date at
1924, the new amendment will
allow thousands of former
Austrian citizens to receive an
on-going monthly payment of
approximately $400.
Austrian government esti-
mates that this provision will
cost them between 2 and 8
billion Austrian schillings, or
approximately $165 to $665
million.
"This is a tremendous break-
through," said Israel Miller,
J resident of the Committee for
ewish Claims on Austria.
"For years, the Austrians
have claimed that they were
not part of the Nazi empire,
that they were a victim coun-
try" and therefore were not
responsible for compensation
payments.
But according to Elan Stein-
berg, executive director of the
World Jewish Congress, such
legislative actions hardly fulfill
Austria's obligations to its for-
mer citizens.
"This is a positive step, but
it doesn't address the central
issue of Austria's refusal to
face up to its role regarding
Nazi war crimes, and its fail-
ure to adequately compensate
survivors of those crimes," he
said.
There were approximately
181,000 Jews in Austria prior
to the Nazi Holocaust. 60,000
to 80,000 are estimated to
have perished.
Although compensation
plans were initiated in the mid-
1950s, the one-time award of a
few thousand dollars was con-
sidered inadequate by world
Jewish organizations.
"The legislation," said
Steinberg, "simply does not
meet the repeated four-
decade-old demand of the Jew-
ish world that Austria recog-
nize its responsibility as West
Germany has, and as East Ger-
many in principle has said it
would."
The Committee for Jewish
Claims on Austria agrees that
the Austrian legislation isn't
comparable to West German
reparation payments to Nazi
victims, but nevertheless feels
that a great step forward has
been taken.

Viewpoint
Modern Maccabbees Needed
Chanukah, known both as the Festival of
Lights and the Festival of Freedom, this
year is marked by continuing upheaval in
Eastern Europe and the accelerated exo-
dus of Jews from the Soviet Union.
How or why the two events are related is
unimportant at the moment.
Such major questions as, a Jewish "posi-
tion" on the re-unification of Germany and
the impact of the decline of Communism on
Israel s role as an American ally in the
Middle East, cannot interfere with our
immediate challenge.
While current day Jews face few of the
physical dangers which confronted the
ancient Maccabbees, they are confronted
by a problem of both staggering and grow-
ing dimensions.
Israeli officials now say that their origi-
nal estimate of 100,000 Soviet Jewish
immigrants in the next three years may
have been understated dramatically.
Revised figures go as high as 300,000 in
three years.
The $2 billion master plan for Soviet
Jewish aliyah was based on the lower
figure. It may have to be increased propor-
tionally.
The American Jewish community's share
in m
ally budgeted at $500 million.
Irrespective of the final needs, U.S. and
world Jewry must join with Israel to insure
that our constant cry of "Let My People
Go" is met by contributions and loans equal
to the task.
And the task of absorbing the tens of
thousands of Russians who will successfully
gain a home in America must be accom-
plished simultaneously.
Thus, as we kindle the lights of Chanu-
kah, we must have faith in our ability to
match the miraculous events of our times
with deeds of Tzedakah which are at the
very core of Judaism.
Happy Chanukah.

Poland Is Latest Arena
Of Jewish-Christian Realtions
NEW YORK (JTA) It is
not a little ironic that Poland,
which has been attacked by
some Jewish spokesmen unre-
lentingly for its historic anti-
Semitism, has suddenly
become the most active arena
for Jewish-Christian relations.
Despite the recent sensa-
tional headlines over the reso-
lution in principal of the Aus-
chwitz convent controversy, a
wide range of serious aca-
demic, intellectual and religi-
ous activity has in fact been
taking place between Poles
and Jews for nearly a decade.
A number of major Israeli
scholars have been engaged in
significant joint research pro-
jects with the Research Center
on Jewish History and Culture
in Poland at the Jagiellonian
University of Krakow, and
also at Warsaw University.
They have already published
bibliographies and essays on
Polish-Jewish culture between
1919-1939, and on Polish-
Jewish relations between
1945-1985.
Professor Antony Polonsky,
a Polish Jew who lectures at
the London School of Econom-
ics, has written a survey paper
describing the wide range of
these Polish-Jewish exchanges
today.
Polonsky recently accom-
panied Sir Sigmund Sternberg
of London on a Nov. 24-28
mission to Poland (owing to
health re
weather in Poland, I was una-
ble at the last minute to join
them in the long-planned mis-
sion).
At the meeting, assurances
were given by Polish Prime
Minister Tadeusz Mazowiecki,
Cardinals Jozef Glemp and
Franciszek Macharski, and
others concerning the Aus-
chwitz convent and promoting
Jewish-Christian relations.
The Polish leaders also dis-
cussed the founding of the
Polish Society for Jewish-
Christian relations.
Yet despite the s
substantial progress that has
been made in bettering Polish-
Jewish relations in the past
decade, Polish Jews are now
deeply worried that "irre-
sponsible actions or state-
ments by Jews abroad, with
little knowledge of Polish con-
ditions, enormously compli-
cated their conditions."
They pleaded with us "to use
your influence to persuade
Western Jews to refrain from
ill-judged and provocative
statements or actions .
which enormously complicate
our situation."

national relation* consultant to the

Latin American Jews
Warned On Neutrality
PARIS (JTA) There is
growing concern in Jewish cir-
cles here that right-wing
extremist Jean-Marie Le Pen
could be strengthened politi-
cally by his trial for anti-
Semitic hate- mongering,
because he may well be acquit-
ted.
He would then become a
martyr, a spokesman for the
International League Against
Racism and Anti-Semitism
said. He explained that Le Pen
faces a single count of racist
libel, which the court might
consider insufficient to con-
demn him.
The Parliament of Europe,
which is the legislative body of
the European Community,
voted overwhelmingly to sus-
pend Le Pen's immunity as a
deputy, so that he could be
brought to trial.
The trial is expected to take
place in February.

WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Jews in Latin America
cannot afford to be neutral in
the struggle to preserve
democracy in that region, a
Latin American Jewish leader
warned here.
There is a future for Jews in
Latin America only if they
maintain "a very strong com-
mitment to strengthen democ-
racy, to help it flourish, to take
care of social problems, to help
those who suffer," said
Alfredo Neuburger,
B'nai B'rith International's
assistant executive vice presi-
dent for Latin America.
Neuburger, who lives in
Buenos Aires, spoke at a day-
long symposium on "What
Economic Measures Will Adv-
ance Democracy in Latin
America?" sponsored by the
International Council of B'nai
B'rith.
Last decade has brought a
rapid growth in democratic
governments to a majority of
Latin American countries, and
as a result, the region's popu-
lation now has great expecta-
tions, Neuburger said.
But, he cautioned, "this mas-
He underlined that Jews, just like many other
Latin Americans, have no experience with
democracy. Where there is no tradition of
pluralism or dissent, democracy "is not part and
parcel of everybody's life."
sive return to democracy came
at the same time as the worst
economic crisis that Latin
America has endured in this
century."
The deteriorating economic
situation throughout much of
Latin America has affected
Jews no differently than
others, he said. Most Latin
American Jews are middle
class, but in Argentina, for
example, the middle class has
been "pushed down" by the
economy and there are now
many Jews in poverty along
with other Argentinians, Neu-
burger explained.
Since the democratic gov-
ernments of Latin America
have been unable to solve their
social and economic problems,
some people, Jews among
them, are calling for "a strong
hand," he warned.
He underlined that Jews,
just like many other Latin
Americans, have no experi-
ence with democracy. Where
there is no tradition of plural-
ism or dissent, democracy "is
not part and parcel of every-
body's life."
He added that he is "dis-
turbed" by Jewish self-
centered concerns. "I have
heard those who have said
there are some dictatorships
that are not so bad because
they don't affect the Jewish
community," he said. Neubur-
ger stressed that Jews become
second-class citizens in dictat-
orships, just like everyone
else.
Now, as economic turbul-
ence grows alongside democ-
racy, anti-Semitic forces have
begun to appear. This is now
happening in Argentina, a
country with an anti-Semitic
legacy, and in Brazil, where
neo-Nazi groups have begun to
raise their heads publicly, he
noted.

Chanukah
Continued from Page 1
placed them neatly in a row on
the window ledge.
He then murmured the
appropriate blessings as he lit
each one carefully and finally
planted the ninth candle
slightly off to the side. He sank
gently into his seat and, for the
first time in a long time, I saw
a smile on my Papa's face.
Someone on the platform
shouted: "There's light over
there!" Within a few minutes,
different teams of Border
Police and Gestapo agents
came into our compartment to
check passports and papers by
the flickering Chanukah lights.
The chief Border Police offi-
cer, seated at the light, compli-
mented my father for being
wise enough to take along
"travel candles." We 'dis-
creetly left the compartment
and watched the amazing
scene from the passageway
near the door.
After about a half hour or so,
the Chanukah candles seemed
to have no more than a few
minutes of life left in them.
Suddenly, as unexpectedly as
the lights had gone off, they
came on again. There was
momentary shock at the harsh
glow of the instant brightness,
but there was also a sigh of
relief.
One officer curtly thanked
my father, left our compart-
ment, and joined the others
who were spreading out to
continue their work through-
out the train.
Papa turned to me and
smiled. "Remember this
moment, son" he declared
softly, "like in the days of
Maccabees, a great miracle
happened here."

Japanese Choir Masters Hebrew
By BEN GALLOB
NEW YORK (JTA) A
choir of 40 Japanese Chris-
tians singing "Jerusalem, the
Golden" in fluent Hebrew,
clad in kimonos and using tra-
ditional Japanese musical
instruments, is a charming
audio-visual experience that
raises interesting questions.
Who is this group of pro-
fessed Christians who act like
dedicated Jews? Is there a
Jewish community in Japan
and what is it like?
The answers were provided
to New York Jewish Week
reporter Toby Axelrod and to
the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency by Rabbi Marvin
Tokayer, who was rabbi of the
Jewish community in Japan
for 13 years and is now execu-
tive director of the North
Shore Hebrew Academy in
Great Neck, N.Y.
The singers come from
Kyoto and are members of the
Shinonome choir Japanese
for "The Dawn" which
recently completed its second
tour of American cities.
They belong to an unusual
Christian religious society,
"Bait Shalom, or house of
peace, which was founded in
1970 by the Rev. Takeji
Otsuki.
Tokayer said Otsuki believes
that "as part of his theology it
is a divine professional pur-
pose to be friendly to Jews."
In an interview with the
Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
Tokayer spoke of the Japanese
Jewish community, which he
estimated numbers no more
than 500, making it the small-
est religious group in Japan.
It has three components: the
oldest, largest and most
influential is made up of Soviet
Jews, who originated in
Siberia, moved to Manchuria,
relocated in Shanghai and
finally settled in Japan.
The second component,
mostly Sephardic Jews, origin-
ally lived in Baghdad and
Basra in Iraq, and then made
their way to Shanghai before
settling in Japan.
The third component is made
up of American and Israeli
Jews serving embassies in
Japan or working for multi-
national corporations.
The first two are permanent
settlers, but none of the Jews
in Japan are citizens.
Tokayer, a Conservative
rabbi ordained in New York in
1962, explained that under
Japanese law, a Jew can be a
permanent resident without
being a citizen.
Most of them live in Tokyo
and some in Kobe. There is a
synagogue in each city.
Whereas in the western
world the rabbi is the rabbi of
his congregation, in Japan, he
is the rabbi of the community
and his salary is paid by the
community, Tokayer said.
As community rabbi, he pro-
vided education, culture and
religion, including daily wor-
ship services. Tokayer said
every Jew in Japan partici-
pated in almost all Jewish pub-
lic events, such as New Year
services and Israeli Independ-
ence Day.
As for Rev. Otsuki's 10,000
followers, they constitute the
second largest religious minor-
ity in Japan. Tokayer
described them as "a kind of
Jewish Christians," who not
only never proselytized but are
anti-missionary.
The majority of Japan's 120
million citizens are followers of
Shinto.
Tokayer, a former U.S.
Navy chaplain, first heard the
Shinonome choir about 20
years ago, soon after he
became the community rabbi.
He told Axelrod that the
Hebrew used by the choir "is
correct, not butchered and
highly emotional, which means
they understand the words."
The choir, whose members
light candles and sing Jewish
Sabbath songs, are frequent
visitors to Israel. It was
Tokayer's suggestion that
they also visit the United
States.
They made a brief stop in
this country last year en route
to Israel and a much more
extended tour this year, which
ended last month.
The choir gave concerts in
New York, Boston, Worcester,
Mass., Chicago, Houston, San
Francisco and Los Angeles.
Tokayer said Otsuki's follow-
ers "were very early" in the
practice of "praying for Jews,
although they had never met a
Jew."
He said they were praying
for the reunification of Jerusa-
lem before they saw Jerusa-
lem.
Choir performances are free.
Tokayer said the sect members
provide the funds for the
tours.
Its repertoire includes
Israeli songs and one written
in Hebrew by Otsuki, but also
Japanese folk melodies and
songs for children.
Tokayer said the choir has
been greeted with "great
warmth and enthusiasm" in
Israel, and their performances
get "rave reviews" in the
Israeli media.
Recently, the Otsuki follow-
ers built an inn in Kyoto, also
named "Beit Shalom." It is
free to Jewish guests, and
Tokayer believes it to be "a
symbolic gesture, a kind of
reaction to the Holocaust."
He fixed a mezuzah to the
inn doorpost. He said it was
erected on the premise that if
any Jews should ever be in
need, "they should know they
have a home in Japan."
Tokayer left Japan in 1981,
though he visits there every
year. The current rabbi there
is Moshe Silberstein, also Con-
servative.

"Zionism More Important Than Ever'
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
What is the state of Zionism
today? Is the poor, grassroots
Zionist out and the "big giver"
in?
These are some of the deep-
reaching questions that Jac-
ques Torczyner, one of Amer-
ica's major Zionist figures,
took an emotional look at as
the Zionist Organization of
America turns 92 years old.
At its peak, the ZOA, the
oldest of America's Zionist
organizations, had more than
one million family members.
Its voice was unmistakably
heard loud and clear as one of
the forces whose rallying cries
supported the birth of the Jew-
ish state 42 years ago.
Its members wept and cele-
brated with euphoria as the
Jews finally had a state after
2,000 years of bitter exiles,
pogroms, dispersion and ulti-
mately, the Holocaust.
Now, the ZOA has some
135,000 family members.
Membership is currently on
the rise, leaders say, but
nowhere near its onetime num-
bers.
The Zionist ideal was filled
with the establishment of the
Israeli state. But according to
Torczyner, who was born in
Antwerp, Belgium in 1914,
"Zionism today is more
important than before."
In an emotional, passionate
speech to delegates at the 87th
Annual ZOA convention in
Miami Beach, Torczyner
lamented that "100 years from
now, people will not under-
stand that Jews Zionists
did not go to Israel."
He compared three great
Jewish figures of the past cen-
tury: Karl Marx, Sigmund
Freud and Albert Einstein.
"Marx's communism is
crumbling. Freud said there is
no future for the Jews.
Einstein was never afraid to
say he was a Zionist."
Movement began to lose its
members once the dream of
the Jewish state became a real-
ity, Torczyner said.
"The poor Zionist is out. The
Big Giver became the Big
Leader. The new generation
has forgotten what Zionism
has done and the Jewish
Agency is the new connection
between Israel and the Dias-
pora."
Then Torczyner expressed
his fears.
"I don't rejoice when the
Polish Catholic Church is
reborn, when the Pope who
refuses to recognize Israel
embraces Gorbachev. A reuni-
fied Germany is the danger of
Third World War."
There is a "great differ-
ence" between Zionism and
non-Zionism, Torczyner said.
"There was a time in the 40s
when if you criticized Israel
you were a traitor." Now, he
said, Jewish leaders who come
to America from Israel, openly
criticize Israel on television.
"And Jewish organizations fol-
low suit."
The united Jewish voice has
given way to dispersed opini-
ons and the danger of that is
seen when hundreds of thou-
sands of Kurds are murdered
and that is ignored by the
media while the death of one
Arab makes the front page.
"American Jewry is voice-
less today," Torczyner said.
"Today, everyone runs to
Washington separately. There
is no Zionist voice in the
media...but the media writes
about one leader who goes to
Washington."
Zionists must unite on such
issues as Soviet Jewry. "The
danger is we have very little
time to save Jews from the
Soviet Union and instead of
going there to build commun-
ity centers, we should go there
and take them to Israel," Torc-
zyner implored.
And in a statement that may
ruffle some leadership
feathers, Torczyner nonethe-
less declared: "We have a
fight. Not with the community.
But with professionals in the
community. They are running
the show.
"We are living in emergency
times. We have to bring Jews
from the Soviet Union and
Ethiopia. Give money directly
to Israel. If Federations sup-
port the Arabs, let Zionists
support Israel directly."
As a member of the United
Nations observer team at
UNESCO in Paris, Torczyner
said he witnessed the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization
receive a standing ovation
from countries such as Ger-
many, France and Togo.
"It reminded me, again
Israel is alone. And we must
learn a lesson Never
Again!"

Intifada Likely
To Continue
TEL AVIV (JTA) An
objective assessment of the
intifada by a major Israeli
think tank indicates that the
uprising has lost much of its
steam but is, nonetheless,
likely to go on for a considera-
ble time.
It also found that some of
the most drastic countermea-
sures by the Israel Defense
Force, including deportations,
proved counterproductive.

B'nai B'rith Women Maintain Position
Washington, DC -
B'nai B'rith Women said this
week its Executive Board has
voted overwhelmingly not to
rescind its 1988 statement
which reaffirmed the organiza-
tion's legally incorporated
status. The vote thus sets the
stage for B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional to determine whether it
will follow through with its
threatened expulsion of the
120,000-member women's
organization.
"The ball is in their court,"
said B'nai B'rith Women Pres-
ident Hyla S. Lipsky in com-
menting on the action. "Our
board has stood firm in show-
ing that it will not change the
governing structure of our
organization, just
because B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional has changed its mind
about how it wants to operate.
"So now B'nai B'rith Inter-
national will have to take
responsibility for the havoc it
has caused.
Expulsion threat to B'nai
B'rith Women came formally
from B'nai B'rith Interna-
tional in its December 3, 1989
Board of Governors' meeting.
At that time, the Governors
passed a resolution which
threatened to expel
B'nai B'rith Women from the
B'nai B'rith family unless the
women's organization: 1)
rescinded, by December 17, its
October, 1988, statement; and
2) acknowledged B'nai B'rith
International s absolute con-
stitutional power over the sep-
arately-incorporated women's
organization.
B'nai B'rith Women was
legally incorporated in the Dis-
trict of Columbia in 1962, and
has been functioning as a self-
governing organization within
the B'nai B'rith family since
that time.
Lipsky informed Seymour
Reich, president of
B'nai B'rith International of
her Board's action. At that
time, she also proposed a
meeting between the two
organizations to discuss the
six-point plan for cooperation
and negotiated affiliation, pro-
posed by B'nai B'rith Women
at the Dec. 3 B'nai B'rith
International Board of Gover-
nors meeting.
"We regret it was necessary
(for the B'nai B'rith Women
Executive Board) to take these
votes," said Lipsky in the let-
ter informing Reich of the
board's decision. "B'nai B'rith
Women has sought throughout
your term as president
of B'nai B'rith International,
and for many years preceding
your presidency, to remain an
indispensable member of the
B'nai B'rith family.
"We believe your resolution
was unwarranted and contrary
to the best interest of the
Jewish community and our
two organizations," Mrs.
Lipsky said, noting that, "it is
ironic in these times of revolu-
tionary change in Eastern
Europe that B'nai B'rith Inter-
national seeks to institute its
own Cold War, erecting barri-
ers between B'nai B'rith Inter-
national and B'nai B'rith
Women just as similar barriers
are being torn down through-
out the world."
Nobel Laureate Activist
For Human Rights
By ELLEN ANN STEIN
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
One of Nobel laureate Daniel
Nathans' earliest memories is
his parents' good humor in the
face of the Great Depression.
Youngest of eight children of
Russian Jewish immigrants
Sarah and Samuel Nathans, he
worked part-time jobs in order
to get a basic education. He
studied mathematics, chemis-
try, philosophy and literature
at the University of Delaware.
A scholarship took him from
his native Wilmington, Del. to
the Washington University
School of Medicine in St.
Louis.
In the almost 40 years since
then, he spent only five years
in the 1950s as a medical doc-
tor before deciding on a career
of research and teaching.
The culmination of his early
efforts in research was a 1978
Nobel Prize in Medicine, which
he shared with Werner Arber
and Hamilton 0. Smith.
The prize was for the appli-
cation of restrictive enzymes
in the analyses of DNA.
Restriction enzymes are
enzymes that cut DNA at spe-
cific places, making them use-
ful for isolating genes and for
mapping chromosomes. This
technique has been particu-
larly important in the isolation
of disease-related genes.
During a recent visit to
South Florida Nathans, a pro-
fessor of molecular biology at
John Hopkins University in
Peres Chastises
World Jewry
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Finance Minister Shimon
Peres chastised world Jewry
this week for not rushing to
assist Israel in the upcoming
task of absorbing tens of thou-
sands of new immigrants.
"Jewish people, where are
you?" Peres demanded, wag-
ging an accusing finger in the
Knesset. "Larger sums are
allocated in the direction of the
local federations, and less and
less money reaches Israel," he
declared.
Peres, who is vice premier,
addressed a special Knesset
session devoted to the immi-
nent prospect of absorbing
much larger numbers of immi-
grants than have arrived in
recent years.
Baltimore, spoke about his lat-
est work, on genes that regu-
late how cancer cells grow.
A number of genetic changes
that underlie cancer have been
identified, Nathans told The
Floridian.
"As a consequence of that
we can now use the informa-
tion for early diagnosis or in
some cases determine suscep-
tibility to particular types of
cancer. There is a hope that by
understanding how these can-
cer-causing genes work that
there'll be new ways to treat
cancer."
Nathans, 61, is also a mem-
ber of the Human Rights Com-
mittee of the National Acad-
emy of Sciences.
"We're concerned about all
scientists whose human rights
are not being respected, and of
course, among them, are the
refuseniks in the Soviet Union.
And, I have to say, in some
cases, also the Palestinians in
the West Bank whose rights
are not being respected."

President Bush Initiates
White House Chanukah
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Bush played dreidel
at the White House, first get-
ting a no-decision on "nun"
and then winning a pot of
chocolates on "gimmel.'
Bush played with students
from the Charles E. Smith Day
School here as part of the first
large-scale Chanukah celebra-
tion at the White House.
"From now on in the White
House, we will be thinking in
terms of a 1,009 points of
light," Bush quipped, after the
Synagogue Council of America
presented him with a Chanu-
kah menorah.
Celebration was attended by
close to 100 Jewish leaders,
administration officials and
day school students.
After this year's main event,
a delegation led by Rabbi
Abraham Shemtov, Lubav-
itch's national director, met
with Bush, in keeping with an
11-year-old Chanukah tradi-
tion at the White House involv-
ing American Friends of
Lubavitch.
Bobbie Greene Kilberg,
director of the White House's
public liaison office, said the
President George Bush
dreidel-playing event was the
president's idea and that it
would be the start of a Bush
tradition.

Kitty Dukakis
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
President Bush has appointed
Kitty Dukakis to the 65-

Educator Attends
N.A.T.E. Conference
Sandra B. Goldstein, Direc-

Reform Jewish educators from
the United States and Canada,
attended the 35th Annual Con-
ference of the National Associ-
ation of Temple Educators
held in Miami, on December
24-28.
"Searching For Our Future:
Preparing Jews for the 21st
Century" was the theme of the
Conference. Highlights of the
Conference included Scholar-
In-Residence Dr. Michael J.
Cook, Professor of Intertesta-
mental and Early Christian
Literature at the Hebrew

Cabinet Secretary Paves
Way For Arens Mission
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) Cab-
inet Secretary Elyakim Rubin-
stein flew to Washington this
week for meetings officials
here deemed would be crucial
to the proposed Israeli-
Palestinian dialogue in Cairo.
According to knowledgeable
sources, Rubinstein, who is
close to Prime Minister Yitz-
hak Shamir, will be testing the
waters surrounding U.S.
Secretary of State James
Baker's five-point proposal for
the dialogue, which both Israel
and Egypt have accepted, con-
tingent upon certain "assump-
tions."
If he is satisfied Israel's
interests are served, Foreign
Minister Moshe Arens will
probably go to Washington
next month for talks with
Baker and Egyptian Foreign
Minister Esmat Abdel Meguid
JNF Not
In Contempt
New York Justice Shirley
Fingerhood of the New York
State Supreme Court denied a
motion to hold the Jewish
National Fund of America in
contempt of a previous judicial
order.
A suit brought in the fall of
1988 by plaintiffs allied with
right-wing Zionist organiza-
tions alleged that JNF of
America, which does not carry
out projects beyond the Green
Line territories beyond
Israel's pre-1967 borders
had misrepresented itself as
doing so.
Among the plaintiffs is Jay
Marcus, son of Hadassah Mar-
cus, who has raised a publicity
campaign against JNF for sev-
eral years since it refused her
$5,000 check designated for
work in the West Bank.
to make final arrangements
for the dialogue.
But if Rubinstein returns
dissatisfied, there will be a
strong move within Shamir's
Likud bloc to call a halt to the
diplomatic process before that
tripartite session can take
place, political observers said.

Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
.. "And Joseph was the governor over the land ,
brethren came, and bowed down to him"
MIKETZ
. And Joseph's
(Gen. ia.6).
MIKETZ Two years later, Pharaoh dreamt a dream in two
slightly different versions. The dream terrified the king of Egypt;
but none of his sages could explain it satisfactorily. Pharaoh's
butler remembered Joseph's masterly interpretations of dreams,
and informed Pharaoh. Joseph was brought before Pharaoh and
explained the dream as forecasting seven years of plenty that
were to come to the land of Egypt, only to be succeeded by seven
years of famine. He advised Pharaoh to appoint a wise overseer to
collect wheat during the years of plenty and distribute it during
the years of famine. Pharaoh appointed Joseph himself to this
post as his viceroy.
As Joseph had forecast, the Egyptian stores of wheat were in
great demand during the seven years of famine. Among those
who came to buy wheat in Egypt were Joseph's older brothers.
Joseph recognized them, but they did not know him. Joseph so
contrived that the brothers came to Egypt a second time,
bringing Benjamin, Joseph's full brother with them. Joseph
received them cordially; but then it made it seem as though
Benjamin had stolen a goblet, and insisted that he stay behind as a
servant. The brothers refused to abandon Benjamin, and all
decided to return to Joseph's home.
