U.S. Protests Settlers Move
By HOWARD ROSENBERG
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The State Department expre-
ssed dismay at reports that the
Israeli government helped
Jewish settlers acquire a build-
ing in the Christian Quarter of
Jerusalem's Old City.
"The admission by the
Israeli Housing Ministry that
it subsidized the settlers'
action is deeply disturbing,"
said department spokeswoman
Margaret Tutwiler.
She also called the settlers'
activity, launched during the
Christian holy days immedi-
ately preceding Easter, an
"insensitive and provocative
action."
The controversy erupted
April 11, when 150 Orthodox
Jewish settlers moved into a
building owned by the Greek
Orthodox Church, which they
claimed to have leased from an
Armenian businessman.
Their presence, the first set-
tlement of Jews in the Chris-
tian Quarter since Israel cap-
tured the Old City in 1967,
touched off interreligious
strife in Jerusalem and sharp
criticism of Israel abroad.
Foreign Policy Delayed
By Government Deadlock
TEL AVIV (JTA) Uncer-
tainty surrounding the forma-
tion of a government has com-
pletely paralyzed the workings
of the Foreign Ministry and
has harmed Israel's ties with
many countries, according to a
report in Yediot Aharonot.
The government crisis has
held up the appointment of 17
heads of legations, among
them ambassadors to the
United States, Canada, the
United Nations and France, as
well as to countries which have
only recently restored rela-
tions with Israel.
A senior Foreign Ministry
source is quoted as saying that
"many countries have sus-
pended dialogue with Israel,
while waiting for a govern-
ment to be formed. Agree-
ments which were supposed to
be signed with some countries
have not been signed."
Diplomatic contacts with the
United States and the Soviet
Union have been halted com-
pletely, Foreign Ministry
sources say. The U.S. adminis-
tration, concerned about
appearing to interfere in
Israel's internal affairs, has
refrained from initiating new
ideas for advancing the peace
process.
Soviet authorities are hold-
ing up discussions regarding
the possibility of direct flights
from Moscow to Israel in
return for guarantees that the
immigrants will not settle in
the territories.
Foreign Minister Moshe
Arens, who was scheduled to
sign an agreement for the
renewal of diplomatic relations
with Bulgaria, postponed his
visit there as a result of the
political crisis.
One exception to the abey-
ance of diplomatic activity,
however, was the presentation
of the new Czech ambassador,
Milos Pojar, to President
Chaim Herzog.
Czechoslovakia's president,
the writer Vaclav Havel, is
scheduled to come to Israel
this week. He will be the first
head of state from an Eastern
bloc nation to visit Israel since
those countries restored ties to
Israel, broken in 1967. Havel
will be the guest of Herzog.
Jewish Agency Official
Blasts 'March Of Living'
By CATHRINE GERSON
JERUSALEM (JTA) A
Jewish Agency official voiced
disapproval of visits to Holo-
caust sites in Poland by Israeli
and other Jewish youths.
He also claimed Jews who
live in the diaspora do not
understand the Holocaust.
Yitzhak Meir, who heads the
Agency's Torah Education
Department, was critical of
the "March of the Living," a
two- mile trek by some 4,000
young Jews from 35 countries
over the two miles between the
Auschwitz and Birkenau death
camps in southeastern Poland.
More than 100 South Floridi-
ans took part.
Participants, including 800
from Israel, were observing
International Holocaust
Heroes and Martyrs Day by
re-enacting what had been a
death march 45 years ago.
But according to Meir, him-
self a Holocaust survivor, it
was a useless exercise because
the Holocaust cannot be unde-
rstood by looking at its sites
and relics.
He told the Jewish Tele-
graphic Agency in a telephone
interview that it was more
important to understand why
the Holocaust happened than
what happened.
For Meir, the Holocaust was
possible only because Jews had
no sovereign state. Only by

Charges that Israel's Con-
struction and Housing Minis-
try had provided nearly $2
million of the funds used to
lease the building were levied
by a left-wing Israeli Knesset
member and confirmed by the
ministry.
If the money used came from
U.S. foreign aid dollars, that
would violate U.S. policy,
which bars the use of U.S.
funds beyond Israel's 1967
borders to help non-
Palestinians.
Tutwiler said that the U.S.
Brown, has officially com-
plained to the Israeli govern-
ment.
In New York, the American
Jewish Congress said it was
"appalled" that "members of a
narrow Israeli caretaker gov-
ernment, operating during a
political (transition period)
without a democratic man-
date, have participated in a
clandestine effort to settle
Jews in the Christian Quarter
of Jerusalem."
AJCongress said the settle-
ment activity "underscores
once again Israel's desperate
need for electoral reform,"
aimed at preventing small
political parties from having
hold over the large ones.
Tutwiler said the United
States has not asked Israel yet
for any assurances on how the
U.S.-guaranteed funds are
used, particularly because the
caretaker government is cur-
rently in charge in Israel.
On April 3, the House of
Representatives approved the
$400 million as part of a $2.4
billion supplemental appropri-
ations bill for this fiscal year,
which began Oct. 1.
But the administration has
yet to formally request the
$400 million in housing loan
guarantees.

JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Police are investigating a
wave of hooliganism that they
link to an increasingly tense
political mood as the country
enters its seventh week with-
out a government.
Most serious incidents
occurred in the religious town-
ship of Bnei Brak, north of Tel
Aviv.
Two tear gas grenades were
hurled into a gathering of
thousands of ultra-Orthodox

tion of the seven-year "Daf

study.

3,000 Argentina
Olim Expected
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Israel expects 3,000 immi-

head of the Jewish Agency's
Immigration and Absorption
Department.
He said 820 immigrants
arrived from Argentina in the
first quarter of 1990 and
another 300 families have reg-
istered to immigrate.
According to Gordon, the
main reason for the influx of
immigrants from that country
is that country's painful finan-
cial crisis.
Gordon said his department
has special projects designed
to absorb olim from South
America. About 1,000 were
located last year in settle-

Holocaust Scholar Debunks 'Muth'
Nazis Didn't Make Soap
From Bodies Of Jews
Dr. Yehuda Bauer
TEL AVIV (JTA) Profes-
sor Yehuda Bauer, head of the
Hebrew University's Holo-
caust history department and
regarded as one of the fore-
most researchers of the Holo-
caust, has denied the fre-
quently quoted charge that the
Nazis used the bodies of Jew-
ish death camp victims to
make soap.
The technical possibilities
for transforming human fat
into soap were not known at
that time, Bauer said at a
Holocaust memorial meeting
for Yom Hashoah.
The camp inmates were pre-
pared to believe any horror
stories about their persecu-
tors, and the Nazis were con-
tent to let them go on believing
the reports, he said.
"The Nazis did enough horri-
ble things during the Holo-
caust. We do not have to go on
believing untrue stories,"
Bauer said.
Unsubstantiated rumors
about the use of bodies of
British soldiers to make soap
had circulated during both
World War I and World War
II, he said.
Raoul Hilberg, John G.
McCullough Professor of Polit-
ical Science at the University
of Vermont and a preeminent
historian of the Holocaust,
agrees that the soap rumor,
although widespread, was
probably unfounded.

Study Highlights Increasing Singles
The Changing American Jewish Family
By CAROL SORGEN
BALTIMORE (JTA) The
American Jewish family has
been altered almost beyond
recognition in the last 20
years, and schools and other
communal institutions have
failed to keep pace with the
changes that affect them pro-
foundly.
That is the finding of Dr.
Sylvia Barack Fishman,
research associate at Brandeis
University's Cohen Center for
Modern Jewish Studies.
Fishman has just completed
a study of the societal forces
that have influenced the Amer-
ican Jewish family over the
last two decades, particularly
Jewish women.
Twenty years ago, she notes,
6 percent of American Jews
were single, far below the
national average of 16 percent.
Today, in many major metro-
politan areas, one in three to
one in five Jewish adults is
single, exceeding the national
average of 19 percent.
In 1970, almost all American
Jewish women married in their
20s. Today, the age of first
marriage is much later, post-
poned for educational ana car-
eer goals that have taken pre-
cedence over childbearing.
A rising divorce rate, women
working outside the home,
increasing numbers of singles,
feminism those are the
forces at work.
Fishman surveyed several
geographic areas, but princi-
pally focused on Baltimore
because, she said, "it's a fairly
traditional city. If you can see
changes in Baltimore, you
know that they are widespread
throughout other Jewish com-
munities in the United
States."
Fishman found from Jewish
population studies conducted
in 1970 that 53 percent of
American Jewish women were
married by age 24; 85 percent
by age 29; and 95 percent by
age 34.
Much more recent data cul-
led from Baltimore and Dallas
illustrates the scope of change.
In Baltimore in 1986, 80
percent of Jewish women aged
18 through 24 and 27 percent
aged 25 through 34 had never
married.
For the Jewish community,
these figures translate to an
increasing number of singles,
who now comprise a signifi-
cant population across the
country.
Yet Jewish communal insti-
tutions, which need the talent,
energy and financial contribu-
tions of their singles commu-
nities, have not responded ade-
quately, either by welcoming
singles into existing program-
ming or by creating new pro-
gramming Fishman believes.
"Jewish communities need
to see singles as "real live
Jews," Fishman said. "There
has been a real laissez-faire
attitude about them, and that's
destructive. On a moral basis,
you just can't ignore people
because they're single. They
should have a place among us.
If we wait around, we may lose
these people altogether. They
may become so alienated that
they will never affiliate."
When Jews do marry, Jew-
ish households are quite differ-
ent from what they used to be.
For example, only one-third of
Jewish households today cons-
ist of the stereotypical Mom,
Dad and the kids. "It's not the
same family we knew in the
1950s or even the '60s," Fish-
man said.
Fishman cites four reasons
for the change.
One is new childbearing pat-
terns. While most women used
to bear children in their early
20s, they now delay it until
their late 20s or early 30s.
It has several consequences.
Infertility, Fishman said, is a
problem for approximately 15
percent of married couples in
their 30s who first start trying
to conceive.
To attain a replacement level
for the American Jewish popu-
lation, familes must have 2.2
children, Fishman notes. "By
delaying childbearing, it might
not work out that way."
Career considerations may
also limit the number of chil-
dren the couple has. "A
woman might have a child and
everyone is pleased for her,
yet she receives the message
at work, 'One child is fine, but
don't expect to have any more
children if you want to be a
partner," she said.
A second reason for the
changed family is women
working outside the home.
Twenty years ago, Jewish
wemerl, more than any other
ethnic group, left the work
force during their childbearing
and child-rearing years.
Now, most Jewish women
continue to work through
those years.
Fishman found in a nation-
wide study that two-thirds of
Jewish mothers of children
under age 6 held paying jobs.
"The dual-career family is now
the new conventional family,"
she said.
The widespread employment
outside the home of mothers of
pre-school and school-age chil-
dren has consequences for the
community as a whole, Fish-
man points out.
It has created a growing
need for Jewish day care and
after-school care.
Jewish schools and institu-
tions can no longer assume
that most households include a
parent at home who is availa-
ble for car pools, hot lunch
programs and other institu-
tional needs.
A third reason for the
changed Jewish family is the
rising rate of divorce.
Fishman found that Jews
who divorce tend to remarry
quickly.
"We should be asking, 'Have
you ever been divorced?'
rather than 'Are you now
divorced?' on questionnaires,
she remarked.
The number of those who
have been divorced is two to
three times higher than those
who are currently divorced.
"One-fifth to one-quarter of
the American Jewish popula-
tion has had to deal with
divorce at some point," Fish-
man estimates.
The rising divorce rate has
led to single-parent and
blended families. As a group,
single-parent mothers remain
the least affluent members of
the Jewish community, even
when they are working full-
time.
Fishman stresses that Jew-
ish schools and institutions
must increase their sensitivity
to the special problems these
households face.
The fourth, and perhaps
most important, reason for the
changed Jewish family is femi-
nism.
According to Fishman, femi-
nism has affected not only the
Jewish family but the entire
American Jewish community.
Feminist attitudes are preva-
lent among Jewish women,
even those who claim not to be
feminists, she said.
A broad spectrum of general
feminist and Jewish feminist
goals have been absorbed and
domesticated within the public
and private lives of main-
stream American Jewry.
"Parents value for their
daughters the independence
that a career can bring, more
so than working for the com-
munity or for the family."
Conservative
Women
Confab Set
The 30th Spring conference
of the Florida Branch of
Women's League for Conser-
vative Judaism will be held
May 20-22, 1990 at the Ft.
Lauderdale Airport Hilton
Hotel. My ma Kagan, presi-
dent of the Florida Branch is
being re-installed.
Conference will be attended
by leaders of affiliated conser-
vative synagogue sisterhoods.
Judy Levine has been
appointed conference chair-
man by the Branch President.
Theme of the conference is
entitled, "A Tradition of
Faith." Workshop sessions
will include programming,
membership, youth and fun-
d raising.
One of the most visible
changes wrought by feminism
has been in Jewish religious
and communal life, including
female cantors and rabbis, par-
ticipation of women in prayer
services, and the elevation of
women to positions of real
power and authority.
"When Jews immigrated to
this country, although women
had prayers in the home, it
was basically the men who
retained the ties with the reli-
gion," Fishman said. "Jewish
women were divested of those
ties. Feminism has allowed
Jewish women to re-empower
themselves and their spiritual
life."
As with the general popula-
tion, however, feminism has
not completely eradicated all
barriers faced by women.
"Within Jewish communal
organizations," Fishman
noted, "despite the presence
of qualified women in the field,
very few are promoted to exec-
utive positions."
And those frequently earn
salaries far less than their
male colleagues.
Similarly, women ordained
as rabbis are far less likely, so
far, to attain the most prestig-
ious and lucrative rabbinical
positions in major metropoli-
tan areas," Fishman said.
In the non-sectarian profes-
sions, career paths and sala-
ries of Jewish women still
often lag far behind those of
Jewish men.
But Fishman is optimistic.
"There is a hunger to explore
all things Jewish," she said.
"And the level of Jewish self-
esteem and pride is much
higher now than it was 30
years ago."

Israel And Its 42nd Birthday
Sunday night and Monday were observed
in Israel and around the world as Yom
Haatzmaut, Independence Day, as the
State of Israel observes its 42nd anniver-
sary of its founding.
This is the third birthday Israel will
celebrate in the midst of the intifada, an
uprising which now sees as many Palestini-
ans killed by one another as by Jewish
soldiers.
Largely because of the intifada, the
United States and most of the free world is
slowly escalating the pressure on the
Israelis to implement the proposal for free
elections in the territories of Gaza, Judea
and Samaria.
With only a caretaker government, Jeru-
salem has little ability to resist the
repeated calls from Washington, London,
Paris and lesser capitals.
Although the streets of the Jewish state
remain among the safest on the globe,
tourism is recovering gradually from the
intifada. Costs of keeping armed forces in
the territories continues to wreak an
increased deficit in Israel's troubled econ-
omy. And unemployment and inflation are
no lesser threats than on Yom Haatzmaut a
year ago.
Yet there is joy in the air.
The second exodus is fact. The problems
of the flights from Hungary, the growth of
anti-Semitism among the newly democratic
states of Eastern Europe and the outright
anti-Zionism of significant numbers of
influential Russians have not deferred nor
delayed thus far the flow of Soviet Jewish
emigres to Israel.
Simultaneously, sizeable numbers of olim
arrive from Ethiopia and Argentina.
Record-shattering fund raising efforts
among diaspora Jewry are underway.
Israeli Jews nave moved away from early
skepticism to enthusiasm in welcoming
their new citizens.
In short, Israel is fulfilling the primary
purpose for its modern rebirth. It is a
homeland for the Jewish people, a haven
for the oppressed, a center for Judaism in
its various interpretations.
The problems of forming a new and
stable government have created an urgent
call for electoral reform. The need for a
constitution is recognized to a greater
degree. And the unity of the Jewish people
is emphasized anew as aliyah becomes more
reality than dream.
But there remain serious problems.
Although Senator Bob Dole has backed
away from his initial call for rescinding the
Congressional resolution recognizing Jeru-
salem as the undivided capital of Jerusa-
lem, the undercurrents of questioning mas-
sive aid to that country are clear and
present.
The Administration has tried to minimize
President Bush's remarks about East Jeru-
salem being part of the territories, but the
settlement of Jews in the Christian Quarter
of the Old City has made Bush's comments
more relevant.
This then is Israel at 42, a nation neither
at war nor at peace, but going about its
assigned task with the level of fervor that
made its establishment in 1948 a modern
miracle.
Happy Birthday, Israel.
Arafat Meetings With Carter,
Pope Seem Related
By MARC H. TANENBAUM
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
NEW YORK The meet-
ings in early April between
Yasir Arafat and former Presi-
dent Jimmy Carter in Paris,
and Arafat's subsequent meet-
ing with Pope John Paul II in
Rome were separate events,
but I believe the U.S. and
Vatican decisions to hold the
meetings were not unrelated.
It is not generally known,
even among Jewish leadership,
that there is a close ideological
and working relationship
between the White House and
the Vatican Secretariat of
State. Close communication
took place continuously
between the United States and
the Holy See throughout the
democratic uprisings in East-
ern Europe as well as in Pan-
ama.
Something of that same
understanding is now operat-
ing in relation to Israel, the
Palestinians and the PLO.
Both the Bush-Baker adminis-
tration and the Vatican diplo-
mats appear determined to
help clean up the image of
Arafat and the PLO as a
means of pressing forward the
stalled Middle East negotia-
tions.
Paradoxically, the Jewish
community, as I sensed it, was
angrier over the pope's meet-
ing with Arafat in the Vatican
than it was with the Carter-
Arafat meeting in Paris, with
Schorsch To Address
Cantors Convention
Dr. Ismar Schorsch, chancel-
lor of the Jewish Theological
Seminary, will address the
43rd annual convention of the
Cantors Assembly May 8, it
was announced by Hazzan
Robert Kieval of Rockville,
Md., president of the Assem-
bly. Convention of the world's
largest body of hazzanim will
be held May 6 to 10 at Brown's
Hotel, Loch Sheldrake, N.Y.
French President Francois
Mitterrand in attendance.
But if you read the texts of
those meetings carefully, Car-
ter's statements were far
more critical of Israel and sup-
portive of the PLO than were
the pope's.
Earlier, Carter had attacked
Israel for its "abuse" of the
human rights of the Palestini-
ans, and then Carter was
?uoted in Paris saying, "Ara-
at was doing all he could to
promote the peace process."
The pope, on the other hand,
was more balanced and even-
handed in simply calling for
strengthening "dialogue"
between Israel and the Pales-
tinians as the only valid way to
find adequate solutions for
conflicts. The Vatican's press
statement also reiterated the
pope's rejection of violence
and terrorism.
To reduce a complex issue to
its simplest terms, I now
believe that the shifting atti-
tudes of the Bush administra-
tion will be far more critical
than the Vatican's for the
shape of Jerusalem's future
and the peace negotiations.
Indeed, it will be more import-
raitf,to influence, thvWhvtv
House first before changes will
take place in the Holy See.

national relations consultant to the

Israel Denies Link to Drug Baron
TEL AVIV (JTA) Defense and Foreign Ministry
officials have disclaimed any knowledge of how Israel-made
weapons came to be found on the estate of a Colombian
drug trafficker shot to death by police there last December.
According to a Defense Ministry spokesman, the weapons
were sent legitimately to a sovereign state, which promised
not to transfer them to a third party without Israel's
approval.

Jews Seen As 'Public Face' For Ruling Class

By GLADYS DAMON
Boston Jewish Advocate
Two widely divergent mod-
els, which he called "para-
digms," have guided Jewish
beliefs and survival through-
out our history, said Michael
Lerner, founding editor of Tik-
kun magazine, speaking at
Brandeis University Hillel.
Introduced by Brandeis
chaplain Rabbi Albert Axelrad
as "a very courageous activist
who has founded this progres-
sive magazine as a modern
guide to the perplexed," Ler-
ner proposed that the faith the
Jewish people had that they
could create a better world had
been a guiding principle, trans-
mitted by God to Moses at Mt.
Sinai.
"We are here to proclaim
the possibility of a different
logic in the universe, that
while G-d can and does govern
the universe, we are here to
say that this is possible. To
claim that is to deny a victory
to Hitler and Haman, that the
forces of evil will not control
our souls and minds.
That kind of faith has the
possibility of transforming
reality and making the Jewish
people come back to its funda-
mental mission. That, I
believe, is the power, strength
and beauty of the Jewish peo-
ple," he said.
But there are two distinctly
different paradigms, each con-
taining an element of the truth
and in sharp contrast to each
other, that have moulded Jew-
ish destiny, Lerner asserted.
One is based on the funda-
mental assumption that there
is evil and hostility in the
world which must be con-
quered or obliterated to ensure
our safety.
The other paradigm assumes
that the hurts of the past can
be overcome, in the belief of
the possibility of trust and
compassion to create a just,
peaceful and cooperative
world, he said.
"There is no reason I can't
hold both views, and people
will find some balance between
them," he continued, "but the
balance has been out of whack
in both the Jewish world and in
society as a whole. More and
more, in the course of our
history, the paradigm of love,
compassion and trust and the
possibility of transcendence
have been subordinated to the
other paradigm, the model of
hostility, danger and evil as
having a great deal of power in
the world."
Based on G-d's message to
Moses, where he met "the
power and force of God at the
burning bush," Moses was told
to "go back and tell the people
that they could be free." That
message, Lerner said, made it
possible for them to break out
of the world of oppression, and
became the force that governs
the universe, the belief in the
possibility of freedom to live a
moral life and built a moral
world.
CCST f63eU Helicopters
To Israelis
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Israel will soon buy $285 mil-
lion in U.S. arms, including
$150 million worth of missile-
carrying Apache helicopters to
defend it against enemy tanks,
an Israeli Embassy official
said.
Besides 18 AH-64 Apache
attack helicopters, the sale
would include 539 Hellfire mis-
siles; 14 spare Hellfire
launchers; 16 spare engines;
support equipment; ammuni-
tion; and U.S. maintenance
services.
The St. Louis-based McDon-
nell Douglas Co., whose Mesa,
Ariz., helicopter company
makes the Apaches,
announced the Israeli order
and said it expects to begin
delivery by the end of Septem-
ber. Israel would be the first
foreign country allowed to buy
the Apache.
The $285 million package
would be Israel's first new
major purchase this year of
U.S. weapons. The sale is to
be paid for over several years
with U.S. foreign ajd dollars
that Israel is required to spend
in the United States.
It is not expected to be
blocked by Congress or the
Bush administration. The sale
was mentioned in President
Bush's 1990 "Javits Report,"
in which the administration
tells Congress of any weapons
sales likely to be proposed dur-
ing the year.
Yet, Lerner said, "Bringing
that fundamentally revolution-
ary message of Judaism into
the world has caused our prob-
lems because it was threaten-
ing to the ruling classes which
continued to govern, maintain-
ing class divisions.
"When the Jewish people
came along and not only broke
out of slavery, building our
whole religion around that act
every week we tell the story
and base our holidays around it
it created a lot of problems
for others, like the Romans,
who said it should not happen.
They didn't want to hear our
message of the kingdom of
God on earth and not in the
afterlife, like Christians."
This changing consciousness
resulted in three different
developments in the post-
Emancipation era: Zionism,
the creation of a state to insure
the Jews' separation from the
world, with an army which
they would need for their pro-
tection; socialist international-
ism, a political alternative; and
assimilation into class socie-
ties.
This latter achievement,
Lerner maintained, has had a
curious outcome. "Jews were
used as 'the arm and front
people' of the ruling classes,
which have cleverly manipu-
lated the role of the Jews and
made us their 'public face.'
Anger is diverted and directed
against the Jews, who get set
up to be the target of what
.would be anti-capitalist hostil-
ity. Now, it becomes anti-
Semitic hostility. We play into
this by cuddling up to the
ruling class. We agree to
become part of their class rule
if they would offer to protect
us."
Citing a recent, dramatic
example of how this scenario is
played out on the international
scene, Lerner spoke of the
relationship between the Jew-
ish community and the West.
"A large segment of Jewish
elites and the organized com-
munity bought into the Cold
War, if the U.S. would accept
Israel as its ally." But the
price of that protection, he
claimed, has been the use of
Israel as a "front" for U.S.
interests, doing its "dirty
work" in Central America and
selling arms to South Africa
and elsewhere.
Synopsis Of The Weekly Torah Portion
. "And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats: one lot for the
Lord, and the other lot for Azazel"
(Lev. 16.8).
AH ARE MOT
AHARE MOT After the death of Aaron's two sons, God said to
Moses: "Speak unto Aaron thy brother, that he come not at all
times into the holy place within the veil, before the ark-cover
which is upon the ark; that he die not; for I appear in the cloud
upon the ark-cover" (Leviticus 16.t). Only on the Day of
Atonement, "the tenth day of the seventh month" may Aaron
enter the Holy of Holies, entirely alone, to "make atonement for
the holy place, because of the uncleannesses of the children of
Israel.' Aaron was to bring a bullock as a sin-offering to God; the
other was to be dispatched to the desert, (to Azaxel), a scapegoat
carrying the sins of the children of Israel.
The portion enumerates the laws prohibiting the consuming of
blood. It concludes with regulations pertaining to sexual morality.
(The recounting of the Weekly Portion of the Law is extracted and
based upon "The Graphic History of the Jewish Heritage." edited by
P. Wollman-Tsamir, published by Shengold. The volume is available
at 45 Weat 45 Street, New York. NY 10036 (212) MM911.)
"That also happened in the
17th and 18th centuries in
Poland, when Jews were used
as tax-collectors and landlords
for the ruling class. We were
the ones with the 'public face.'
Now, it's being repeated on
the international scene with
Israel as the client state of the
U.S.," he said.
Israel holds the same funda-
mental world view of "disbe-
lief in any other logic than
fearfulness, distrust and scari-
ness that everyone is against
us and that hostility is inevita-
ble, making it impossible for
Israel to pay attention to coun-
tertendencies," Lerner stated.
"So I want to argue for a
transformation of Jewish con-
sciousness and a different par-
adigm that is actually rooted in
Jewish traditional, a model of
love, compassion, justice and
transcendence, that the world
can be healed through trust
and cooperation, that this par-
adigm involves letting go of a
certain degree of control. It
calls for snaring, mutuality
and asserting the potential of
goodness to triumph in the
world," he concluded.
