Officials of the Jewish organ-
ization, which filed a friend-of-
the-court brief in the Georgia
case, said the decision of the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the
11th Circuit in upholding a
preliminary injunction against
the Clayton County School
District underscores the
"questinable constitutionality"
of the Senate-approved Denton-
Hatfield bill which would allow
prohibiting the School District
from allowing high school faci-
lities to be used for religious
activities for students. School
board officials had appealed the
lower court decision in the 11th
Circuit Court of Appeals.
In hailing the appeals court
ruling, Leonard Habif, president
of the Atlanta Region of
AJCongress, said his organiza-
tion would cite the Clayton
County case in arguing againt
the constitutionality of the
Denton-Hatfield legislation. In
June, following passage of the
bill by the Senate, Theodore R.
Mann, national president of
AJCongress and a prominent
attorney, promised that if the
legislation becomes law,
AJCongress would initiate court
action to invalidate it.
Mann outlined "basic
Constitutional obligations" and
said the Denton-Hatfield legisla-
tion would "undermine the
neutrality and integrity of the
public school system."
HE DECLARED that al-
lowing student religious clubs to
use public school facilities

Bill Raises Soviet Violations
Of Int'l. Laws Governing Mails
- (JTA) Rep. Benjamin Gil-
man (R., N.Y.) Introduced a bill
in the House instructing the U.S.
delegation to raise the issue of
Soviet violations of international
laws governing the mails at the
19th Congress of the Universal
Postal Union (UPU) in Ham-
burg, West Germany.
The bill also asks the UPU to
consider the violations and
possible sanctions against the
violators. A similar measure was
introduced in the Senate recently
by Rudy Boechwitz (R., Minn.).
Gilmans bill is the result of
year-long hearings in Nsw York
City on "Soviet mail sabotage"
at which witnesses representing
Christian, Jewish, Ukrainian,
Russian-American and profes-
sional and academic groups testi-
fied that the Soviet authorities
were deliberately interfering with
the overseas mails. According to

Names Jewish Chief
By London Jewish Chronicle
The New York Times
gave little fanfare to its
formal announcement the
other day that Thomas
Friedman would replace
David Shipler this summer
as the newspaper's Jerusa-
lem Bureau Chief. But the
matter was by no means
Friedman, the Beirut Bureau
Chief who deservedly won a
Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of
the fighting in Lebanon in 1982,
will be the first Jewish corres-
pondent sent by the Times to
head the Israeli Bureau since
the early days of the Jewish
State. He was selected for the
important and highly sought-
after assignment because he
was, by far, the most qualified
person for it on the newspaper's
staff. Among other things, he is
fluent in Arabic and knows
some Hebrew. Most important,
he is an outstanding journalist
who understands the Middle
East. What makes all of this
even more impressive is the fact
that he is only 29 years old.
WHILE THERE have been
many Jews dispatched by the
newspaper to Israel to cover
various breaking stories or to
fill in for a vacationing Bureau
chief, this will represent a clear
departure from the past.
To many American Jews and
others who follow such matters,
the Friedman appointment is a
very welcome development
indeed. In a sense, it suggests
that the professional American
Jewish journalist has finally
come of age. America's major
newspaper of record can finally
"trust" a Jew to report on
Israel without worrying about
any supposed conflict of
There will be positive ramifi-
cations. If the New York Times
can send a Jewish staffer to
Israel, then all other news orga-
nizations in the United States
can finally do the same even
the Washington Post which, un-
fortunately, has maintained that
same unwritten rule to the point
of rejecting extremely qualified
staffers for the Jerusalem slot
simply because of their religion.
The Washington Post, too, will
eventually abolish its "No Jews
Need Apply" rule.
THE MATTER obviously is a
sensitive subject among senior
Timesmen, many of whom
happen to be Jewish and were
themselves, ironically, largely
responsible for the previous dis-
qualification of Jews for the job.
One popular story has it that
Editor Abe Rosenthal was
actually ready for the break-
-through four years ago when
J Shipler was moved from
| Moscow to Jerusalem. Rosen-
* thai, according to Times report-
ers, thought that Shipler was
Jewish. But, alas, he is not
nor were his immediate prede-
cessors: Bill Farrell, Terence
as Smith, James Feron and Peter
-x Grose.
Many other major American
" news organizations have not had
the "Jewish hangup in assign-
ing resident reporters to Israel.
Thus, CBS News had Bob
Simon in Tel Aviv for many
years. NBC's current correspon-
dent in Israel is Martin Flet-
cher, another Jew who moved
up the network's ladder despite
the fact that he is not even an
American. He is from London
and is probably the only major
U.S. television reporter whose
British-accented voice is
regularly heard on the air.
Why? He simply happens to
be a first-rate journalist with
many years' experience covering
Israel and the Middle East,
going back to the early 1970s
when he worked for Visnews,
the British news organization.
WHAT THE Times has final-
ly recognized is that Jews, like
their Gentile colleagues, are
fully capable of reporting on
Israel thoroughly, objectively
and fairly warts and all. In
Britain, this was earlier demon-
strated by such solid profession-
als as Eric Silver of the Guar-
dian, Moshe Brilliant of the
Times of London, and Michael
Elkins of the BBC.
In addition, some of the best
reporting of Israel in the United
States over the years has come
from other Jews, especially Jay
Bu shin sky, Bruno Wassertheil
and Andrew Meisels.
That Jews can honestly and
successfully report on Israel is
most vividly demonstrated vir-
tually every day by the fact
that the very best coverage of
the country is done, of course,
by Israeli journalists them-
selves. This should not be very
surprising since the best report-
ing on America is done by
Americans. Who knows the
country better than the people
who live there all of the time?
This is also the case in cover-
ing events on the West Bank.
The Israeli press is almost
always way ahead of the foreign
news media in breaking stories
there, including, of course, those
most damaging to Israel's
ONE OF THE few American
journalists to go public in
actually recommending that
Jews specifically be barred from
assignments in Israel is Peter
Jennings, the ABC nightly news
anchorman. He made that state-
ment a few years ago in an
interview published in the
Journal of Palestine Studies. At
the time, he was under the
mistaken assumption that Bill
Seamans, ABC's highly-
respected Tel Aviv Bureau chief,
was Jewish and should, there-
fore, not have been given the
"I personally think it is un-
fortunate that we do assign
Jews to work in Israel," Jen-
nings said. "I think that the in-
ference or the suspicion,
whatever it is, would be the
same by having an Egyptian
correspondent serving ABC in
Egypt. I am against having a
Jewish or Israeli correspondent
serving ABC in Israel. I don't
think that one can automatically
challenge objectivity, but I
think it is safer to choose the
most neutral route possible."
That same line of thinking, by
the way, would logically also
prevent American WASPs from
serving in Britain where Jen-
nings, himself, worked for many
years. Jennings, in fact, is a
Canadian WASP.
THE MATTER of a journal-
ist's loyalty to his country, reli-

recently taken on an added sig-
nificance in the United States in
the aftermath of the Jesse Jack-
son "Hymietown" slur. The
reporter responsible for the
original disclosure was Milton
Coleman of the Washington
Post, who happens to be Black.
Coleman, since then, has come
under considerable criticism
from some elements of the Black
community for embarrassing
and undermining the first
serious Black presidential candi-
date. He has been condemned
by some for being a journalist
first and a Black second. Many
journalists, including some of
the most important Blacks in
the business, have praised him.
The leader of the Black Na-
tion of Islam in the United
States, Louis Farrakhan, has
lashed out against Coleman in
the most extreme terms. Thus,
he has even made some highly
publicized death threats against
Coleman and his family. He has
told Black reporters in general:
"Don't tell me nothing about

curiously, most of the major
U.S. news organizations delib-
erately assigned Black reporters

tion that they might win better

reverse-racism practice, which
came under some criticism, has
since largely ended.

sharpest critics in the American
news media.

Can Saudis Defend Selves?
It Depends Upon Army Loyalties
the question: Can Saudi
Arabia defend itself?, an
authority on the Middle
East has concluded that
the answer depends largely
on whether or not the
Saudi armed forces remain
loyal to the House of
In a special report prepared for
the International Relations De-
partment of the American Jewish
Committee, titled "Can Saudi
Arabia Defend Itself?," Prof.
Mordechai Abir, professor of
Middle Eastern Studies at He-
brew University, expresses the
view that the regime's "wide
power-base is still the strongest
guarantee for its stability in the
near future."
Yet, he adds, "it would be
wrong not to observe that events
in the kingdom, in the Arab camp
and in OPEC are likely to erode
this power base."

Abir states that the overall effec-
tiveness of the armed forces has
been impaired by a number of

IN HIS introduction to Prof.
Abir's report, Dr. George E.
Gruen, director of the Middle
East Division of AJC's Interna-
tional Relations Department,
"During the past decade Saudi
Arabia has pursued an ambitious
program to expand and
modernize its armed forces. The

tions as well as the visibility of

Farrakhan. Theodore Mann,
president of the AJCongress,
told a news conference that
Kahane is an extremist,
certainly as much a fanatic as
Farrakahn, whose views are
endorsed by a negligible
minority of American Jews.

Begin also said that he and his
friends want nothing to do with

referred to by his enemies in the
Knesset and particularly by the
late premier, David Ben-
Gurion, as "that man."
the survival of a regime, once it
has lost popular support."
Dr. Gruen also points out that
Saudi leaders are apprehensive
about the loyalty to the regime of
their armed forces.
"AMONG THE domestic fac-
tors which could have negative
impact on the cohesiveness of
Saudi society,"he says, "are the
generational gap between the
older princes and the younger
western educated princes, the at-
traction of some Saudis to pan-
Arab and Islamic fundamentalist
ideologies, the recruitment into
the armed forces of Saudis from
tribes traditionally unfriendly to
the Al Saud, the subversive in-
fluence of the Shi'ite Islamic
regime in Iran upon the country's
Shi'i minority, and the evolving
position of women in Saudi
society, who constitute half of the
kingdom's population but are
still largely excluded from the
work force."
PROF. Abir notes that while
the oil wealth of Saudi Arabia
and its neighboring Arab Sheikh-
doms is immense, yet "all lack
most of the components neces-
sary for the development of
diversified economies. Their
population is so small that to
modernize or industrialize, they
are forced to import a vast for-
eign work force, which in many
cases outnumbers the indigenous
In the weak, disunited Arab
camp of the early 1980's, Profes-
sor Abir points out, Saudi Arabia
remained secure in the leadership
as long as it did not deviate too
far from the Arab consensus.
But, he says, events in Lebanon
and the growth of Iranian power
and influence in the Gulf region
may undermine the relative sta-
bility it has been enjoying.
"WHILE THE struggle for
power within the ruling class
could accelerate the process," Dr.
Abir asserts, "the house of Saud
has tended in the past to close its
ranks whenever its monopoly of
power in Saudi Arabia was at
stake. The future stability of the
kingdom, if not its security from
external threats, will depend
largely on the loyalty and
strength of the Saudi armed
Three successful military
coups in Libya, Sudan and
Somalia and two abortive coups
by officers of the Saudi airforce in
1969 shook the Saudi royal
family, Professor Abir recalls,
"and King Faysal became more
determined to proceed with the
modernization and expansion of
his armed forces."
The kingdom's immense terri-
tory, long coastlines, sparse and
traditional population, and oil
wealth were key factors in Saudi
defense planning, Professor Abir
notes, adding:
"American military experts
assumed that while Saudi Arabia
would remain chronically short of
manpower, it would not lack
funds. They persuaded the
Saudis to focus on the develop-
ment of a powerful airforce and
air defense system rather than
waste their meager human re-
sources on a large army and
navy. The Saudi Airforce, there-
fore, is both capital and techno-
logy-intensive and is most suit-
able to defend the country's oil
fields and vast territories."
IN HIS comments, Dr. Gruen
expresses the opinion that
"whether the Saudis can effec-
tively defend themselves
probably will not be definitely
answered unless their armed
forces engage in a major battle.
Nevertheless, Dr. Abir closely
shows that simply acceding to
every Saudi request for the latest
weapons will not necessarily
solve Saudi Arabia's security
problems. Indeed, additional
arms may have a destabilizing ef-
fect within the country."

History Was Made
In San Francisco
There is nothing especially partisan in
proclaiming joy at the nomination of
Geraldine Ferraro as candidate for Vice
President of the Democratic Party.
Ferraro is the first woman candidate to be
named as an aspirant to the second
highest office in the land, and as such,
she deserves applause. Or, more aptly, it
is the act itself that deserves applause.
There is little doubt that the decision
was political. The Democrats had to do
something to spice up what had become a
boring primary and what was shaping up
to be a typical party blood-letting at the
convention in San Francisco.
There is also little doubt that the
pressure some say it was ill-advised
by the National Organization for Women
especially at their earlier convention in
Miami Beach which Walter Mondale
addressed, was becoming more than a
troubled political organization such as the
Democrats could bear.
To carry the speculation further,
pundits will observe that the nomination
of Ferraro helped to a great extent to
defang the Rev. Jesse Jackson's warning
that he would run a war of his own in San
Francisco if he didn't get his way on a lot
of issues a warning that seemed
especially fearful in light of his anti-
Semitic campaign rhetoric and his refusal
to separate himself from Black activist
Louis Farrakhan.
Sex No Longer an Issue
We suspect that there are kernels of
truth in all of this speculation as to why
Ferraro was given the nod and kernels
of truth in even further speculation not
here mentioned. But the fact remains that
an historic deed was accomplished at the
Democratic Convention in Chicago. The
country has been asked to vote for a
woman Vice President. If elected, she will
stand one heartbeat away from the Boss.
Parallels in significance abound. The
most obvious one was John F. Kennedy's
nomination in 1960 not a first for a
Roman Catholic; New York's Gov. Al
Smith held that distinction in 1928. But
Smith lost; the times were such that
religious bigotry was too powerful for him
to overcome. Kennedy won. No such
burden would be borne by a Romanist
today; indeed, Ferraro herself is a
Catholic, and it is hardly a significant
But if Ferraro's religion is not a
significant issue anymore, now for the
first time, she has made her sex an issue
of indifference in the years ahead win
or lose in November. And that is a thing
for all Americans to take pleasure in.
Needed: Election Reform
Few will venture to say, but in our
view it will surely take a long time for the
election in Israel to be "settled" that
is, for a government to be formed.
The evidence is already abundantly
clear that previous coalition maneuvering
will not prove effective this time in
bringing the mind-boggling number of
parties and interests in Israel to a
governmental accommodation.
What stands in the wings, a shadow
apparently neither the dominant Labor
nor Likud Parties wants, is a national
unity government. Already, there has
been the obvious kind of bickering: Who
will be its leader, Shimon Peres or
Yitzhak Shamir?
Peres' Labor Party won more seats
than Shamir's Likud, but the betting now
is that no government will be formed at
all if Shamir does not head it.
All of which comes down to this
dominant issue: The Major problem
facing Israel today is its economic
disaster, and everyone in the country
knows it. But, in our view, equally major
and equally a disaster is Israel's political
system. It sorely needs revamping.
Until that is done until Israel can
hold an election the outcome of which
reflects the true desires of the electorate
until a government can emerge out of
a single election with a clear mandate to
rule on the basis of its avowed principles,
then Israel's democracy is more than in
trouble. It is in danger.
Israelis like Rabbi Meir Kahane, whose
Kach Party won a single seat last week,
and whose odious politics are enough to
terrify any human being of good-will,
have the kind of exposure he has today
precisely because of Israeli's exotic
election process. If Rabbi Kahane is not a
danger, then we don't know what is
and that includes the economy itself.
Campaign '84
Coming Race for the Jewish Vote
By London Chronicle Syndicate
Charles T. Manatt,
the chairman of the
Democratic Party in the
United States, who for a
few hours last week nearly
wasn't, is taking the
offensive in seeking
continued Jewish support
for his fellow Democrats
this year, whether they're
running for the Presid-
ency, the Senate, the
House of Representatives
or any of the myriad of
the state and local
contests around the
Over the past 50 years, the
Jewish community has consist-
ently voted in greater numbers
for the Democrats, as opposed
to the Republicans. But most
political experts agree that the
trend in recent years has been
toward a more balanced split
between the two major parties.
MANATT AND his party's
most influential leaders are the
first to recognize that the eleva-
tion of the Rev. Jesse Jackson
within the hierarchy of the
Democratic Party this year has
posed some very serious dangers
to the traditional alliance
between Jews and Democrats.
In short, they fear that the
greater Jackson's role in the
party after the national conven-
tion in San Francisco last week,

Jews will turn to the Republican
Jackson, of course, is widely
disliked in the Jewish com-
munity because of his many
critical comments about Israel
and his off-color remarks about
Jews in general the highly-
publicized matter of "Hymies"
being only one of many over the
years, as documented in a just-
released report by the B'nai
B'rith Anti-Defamation League.

view, was clearly sensitive to

SvfirnT cited such issues as
job-training, nutrition and civil
rights. Jackson, he said, did not
make a major initiative to revise
the party's stance on the Middle
East, although in his address to
the convention he clearly called
for one.
Manatt is in a tough and
unenviable position himself. He
can't totally distance himself
from Jackson, since the Black
community is a very important
pillar of the Democratic Party.
Jackson, in recent months, has
emerged as the major Black
leader in the country.
MANATT IS also very much
aware of the fact that the only
way that the Democratic
presidential nominee Walter
Mondale will be able to capture
the White House in November
from President Reagan will be if
the Blacks come out in massive
numbers to vote. That, in turn,
will require a tremendous push,
especially from Jackson.
So Manatt has to walk a thin
line between maintaining his
cordial ties with Jackson, while
at the same time reaching out to
the Jewish community, another
important and influential consti-
tuent of the party.
In seeking to reassure the
Jews, Manatt was outspoken in
blasting the Reagan Admin-

Recent decisions of the
Burger Court have made it evi-
dent, that the present and near
future makeup of the Justices

as a check and balance, to the
other two arms of government
in our democracy. Negation and
nullification of progressive,
hard-won decisions of the past
two decades, especially in the
realm of civil rights and social
welfare, are grievously affecting
minorities of our citizenry. Con-

With the likely retirement, or
demise of three to five of the

Family Mission Success
Dr. and Toni Berliner Return Enthused
Dr. Arnold Berliner and his
wife Toni recently returned from
a family mission to Israel
feeling enlightened and com-
mitted. Both Arnold and Toni
expected to love Israel, but
neither could realize the extent
to which a mission would
enhance their feelings.
For years the Berliners had
"been looking forward to visit
Israel, so when Arnold came
home one evening last October
and told Toni they were going
to Israel he had no trouble
convincing her.
From that time on Arnold
and Toni became more and more
excited. In fact, Toni said "the
high starts from the minute that
you walk through the terminal
doors at Kennedy." The El Al
jet leaving New York on June
-17, consisted of travellers from
all over the United States.
According to Dr. Berliner, "It
didn't take long for people to
establish a common meeting
ground in terms of communi-
cation, and nobody had to tell
each other what they were
feeling. We could tell by their
reactions that we all were
feeling the same things. I think
that you have a feeling of
almost coming home.
We travelled the Orient, we
travelled to Europe and we
always felt like foreigners. As
soon as you land in Israel there
_js no sense of foreigness at all."
Toni continued with "despite
the fact that we have never been
there before, there was no sense
of being an alien in Israel. I
think that is true for the
majority of people that travel to
Israel." "There was an ease of
communication that I have not
found in other parts of the
world," Arnold continued, "be-
cause they-are your people."
"You are going to a state that
is Jewish and for once in your
^tfe you are in the majority
instead of the minority," Toni
According to the Berliners,
participating on a mission
rather than a conventional tour
to Israel becomes a shared
experience. "We had a sense of
knowing what the country was
really about. You not only visit
the Western Wall and Meah
Shearim and go to the
museums, but you are with
people who made their lives in
Israel. The Kibbutz, air force
^base, the old age home, Kfar
saba our Project Renewal Sister
City are all valuable experiences
and places to go." Dr. Berliner
feels the mission was special be-
cause "it was being with other
people who were going for the
same reasons that you were, to
see things that many of us have
not seen before, to be with a
group of young families." "I
think that you get a different
mission: possi&le
of the trip. You come away from
the mission with your own
impressions rather than being
spoon-fed with what we should
According to the Berliners, it
makes good sense to go on a
mission, especially if it is your
first trip to Israel. Missions are
run very efficiently, and the
guides are there to please you
and make the trip as comfort-
able as possible. Children have a
wonderful time and come home
far more aware of the State of
Israel. Being in Israel gives you
an opportunity to explore your
inner feelings. "It made me
proud to be able to trace my
heritage back so far, and that
we have survived in spite of
everything," added Toni.

Toy Factory Exists In Kfar Saba
Polin is a South County
journalist now based in Israel
who is writing a series of
articles on neighborhoods in
Kfar Saba that are twinned with
the South County Jewish
Federation under the Project
Renewal Program.
A toy factory exists in Kfar
It is not the usual mechanical
assembly line, but a place where
each toy is handmade.
Ironically, many of the people
who make these toys never
played with toys in their youth.
That's because most of the
families living in Yoseftal and
Kaplan, two neighborhoods in
Kfar Saba, come from Oriental
backgrounds Morocco,
Yemen, Iraq where toys were
not part of their culture, where
a good child was a quiet child.
These parents here know their
children need food and clothes,
but that's not enough for their
normal development. Without
attention, without toys to stim-
ulate the intelligence of these
children, these youths enter
Israeli schools at a dis-
advantage. They are lacking the
skills other children have when
they enter school.
It is a disadvantage which
they are forever trying to
In extreme cases, the children
digress so much because their
intellect is not stimulated that
they could be mistaken as
mentally retarded.
With the help of Project
Renewal in the neighborhoods of
Yoseftal and Kaplan, the
children here will live happier
lives. With proper stimulation,
these children can be as normal
as anyone.
Here, in a small room at the
Kupot Cholim (Health Clinic),
mothers of young children make
toys. The room is a menagerie
of stuffed dolls, rattlers, mobiles
and children's books.
The toys here are not refined
products. A roughness exists
about them. Yet, there is a
specialness instilled in each toy
Maybe it's because the toys
are handmade by the children's
mothers. Maybe it's because the
toys are made from common
household items plastic soda
bottles, old clothes.
"It's marvelous. Something
special," said Lili, a mother of
two toddlers.
Lib, who lives in Yoseftal, has
made mobiles, a stuffed cat doll
and rattlers for her children,
Moshe, 4, and Oshrit, 1.
And the children are more
alert, quick because of the toys,
Lili said.
"It also helps the mothers
financially," Lib said with the
help of an interpreter.
That's an important factor
because many, if not most of
the families living in Yoseftal
and Kaplan, are poor.
Chagit Maoz, who is in charge
of this toy factory, said the
main thing is to make cheap,
inexpensive toys, which will
help the children grow.
Shortly after the mothers in
the neighborhoods give birth,
Ms. Maoz said she visits them.
"I go to their homes and
explain to them how to develop
babies, how to speak to them.
"The main thing is not to be
afraid to show the children they
love them, to take them in their
arms near their bodies," she
"Physical love. To hold the
children. To kiss them," Ms.
Maoz said.
"1 explain to them that it's
not less important to give them
affection than nice clothes and
food," she added.
For a child to develop
normally, Ms. Maoz said, it is
important for the parents to
give their offspring compli-
To emphasize her point, Ms.
Maoz claps her hands to show
what parents should do when
the children walk or talk. Posi-
tive reinforcement.
"I explain to the mothers how
to explain the senses to the
children. To hear. To see. To
smell. To taste..
"To sing to the child because
he likes to hear his mother's
voice. It's not important if she
has a good voice or not," she

prosthesis is the work of Dr.
Jacob Sade, Professor of
Otolaryngology at Tel Aviv
University's Sadder Faculty of
Medicine and head of the
University-affiliated Department
of Otolaryngology .at Meir
General Hospital in Kfar Sava.
The prosthesis has already
been placed in the ears of 30
patients in Israel. In some
instances, hearing was improved
to such a degree that a hearing
aid was no longer necessary. Dr.
Sade notes that the prosthesis
which he has developed is
limited to a specific operation
and is not a cure-all for all
causes of deafness.
Named "Tabor" by Dr. Sade,
after the Israeli mountain, the
prosthesis is now being com-
mercially manufactured in the
United States.
Sara Dachbash, 68, of Ramat
Hasharon, had a prototype of
Dr. Sade's prosthesis placed in
her ears 10 years ago. She had
been deaf for two years. Mrs.
Dachbash said, "Following an
infection in my ears, I couldn't
hear. I was embarrassed all the
time, when I went to work or
with my children." One of Mrs.
Dachbash'8 five children
remarks, "We felt very bad
having to shout at our mother.
We would have to shout at her,
not once, but several times
before she could understand
us." Following the operation,
Mrs. Dachbash began to hear
again. Today, her hearing is
perfectly normal. Indeed, this
interview with Mrs. Dachbash
was carried out over the tele-
phone in a normal, conversa-
tional manner. Mrs. Dachbash,
recalling the discomfort of those
two years and her subsequent
recovery, says, "Thank G-d for
Dr. Sade."
Anyone seeking more
information about the many
achievements of Tel Aviv
University and about the local
chapter of the American Friends
of Tel Avhr University should
call Lauren Azoulai, Executive
Director at 392-9186.
After their first meeting, the
mother will come to the toy
room where she will learn how
to make toys geared to teach
her children.
Perhaps she will make a book
with different materials pasted
to each page in order that her
children will learn the touch of
different things.
Or she might make toys
aimed at developing the Uttle
muscles of the child.
Whatever they make, the toys
become special for the children
and the mothers.
"When the mother is making
the toy with her own hand she's
ready to give more energy to
develop the child with the toys
she makes," Maoz said.
But this "toy factory" is
housed in a small room at the
Kupot Cholim. If this project is
to continue and, in the future,
reach more families, Project
Renewal needs more money.
Project Renewal has plans to
expand and rennovate Kfar
Saba's "toy factory."
Without more money, the
plans will go no further.

allowed the participants to
review the budgeting process
and learn about the issues
feeing them in Jerusalem. "The
Assembly gives us the oppor-
tunity to see firsthand how the
money is being allocated and a
chance to influence the shape of
Israel's future," Robinson said.
Rudolph Robinson, of both
Boca Raton and Cherry Hill,
N.J., was recently one of 300
American delegates to the 1984
Annual Assembly of the Jewish
Aeency in Jerusalem. The
conclave met to review the
Agency's $360 million budget
and allocate funds for its
programs worldwide.
The individuals in attendance,
representing 50 cities, were
afforded the opportunity to
participate in the decision-
making policies of the Jewish
Agency and have a voice in
which social planning and
welfare activities receive
funding. Emigration of Jews
from oppressed countries,
agricultural settlements, youth
aliyah and education both in Is-
rael and the diaspora, are
among the many programs
funded by the Agency.
Robinson is a prominent com-
munity leader, both locally and
in Cherry Hill. He is active in
the South County Jewish Feder-
ation Ocean campaign and has
been a host at the annual
Chalfonte cocktail party. He will
be generating much enthusiasm
in the upcoming Ocean
campaign as Chairman of the
first annual Golf Tournament
for Ocean residents.

dedication is demonstrated by
his numerous activities on
behalf of Federation and the

singing "Hatikva" over the
judges' insults and curses.
Neither his wife TATYANA,
nor Leningrad activist YAKOV
GORODETSKY were allowed to
serve as his lawyer, having been
replaced by a court-appointed
man. Tatyana was permitted an

All but four Jews were barred
from entering the courtroom:

militiaman named Kruglov that
he would "return in a wheel

several days later, during a
gathering of refusenik scientists
at his apartment, he was again
told by an agent that he would
be "crippled within a week."
Gorodetsky was accompanied to
the Latvian capital by several
other Leningrad activists,
including his wife, POLINA.
Former Israeli President
Ephraim Katzir was inter-
rogated by the Leningrad KGB
after attempting to meet with
over 80 refusenik scientists

their colleague ZAKHAR
ZUNSHAIN. A prominent bio-
chemist, the 68 year-old Katzir
was questioned for two horus by
three agents, one of whom spoke
Hebrew. Letters, a book, and
Israeli coins were confiscated
from the former president and
his wife, who was also present.
The couple was released with no
apology or transportation back
from the interrogation site.
Gorodetsky, his wife, and one
other man were also detained
and then released.

4 Palestinians Given
Life by Military Court
JERUSALEM (JTA) Four Palestinian Arabs
were sentenced to life imprisonment by a military court
in Nablus and four others received sentences of 10-25
years for the stabbing murder of yeshiva student
Aharon Gross in the Hebron marketplace last July 7.
The men, all in their early 20's, were described as
fanatical Moslems who want to impose Islamic rule over
Palestine and oust the Jews. They expressed no remorse
over the killing which they saw as part of a jihad
holy war a tenet of the Moslem faith.
DURING THE TRIAL, defense lawyers charged
that the presence of Jewish settlers in Hebron had
created an atmosphere conducive to the emergence of
such extremist groups.
Gross was fatally stabbed while waiting for friends
at the marketplace. His assailants seized the gun he
was carrying and escaped in a car. The youth lay in the
street unattended until he was mis-identified as an Arab
and taken to a local Arab hospital where he was
pronounced (* \. His body was subsequently claimed
by Jewish .thorities.

Leningrad Trial in 1970 for

served in an especially strict
regime camp near the Siberian
town of Perm. The 42- year-old
activist was convicted of
"treason," "anti-Soviet agita-

"stealing state property" for his
attempt, together with Jewish
refuseniks, to fly a plane to
Israel in a dramatic expression
of the Jews' plight. YURI

who participated in the aborted
attempt to leave, is due to be

A recent article in the Soviet
press discussing new publica-
tions "on the anti-Zionist topic"
conspicuously omitted any
reference to Middle Eastern
"specialist" Lev Korneyev's
notorious book, The Class
Essence of Zionism. The book,
which had initially received
favorable reviews, repeats a
standard anti-Semitic formula
by claiming that "Zionist
agents" in the USSR are them-
selves provoking anti-Jewish
acts to further their cause. Else-
where, Korneyev has borrowed
from neo-Nazi doctrine to
declare the Holocaust a "myth
of Zionist propaganda."
The struggle to leave for
Israel is chronicled in articles
and letters from Soviet Jews
and Western scholars in The
Jews of the Soviet Union.
Edited by David Prital, the
book is available in Hebrew
from the Israel Public Council
for Soviet Jewry (4a Chissin St.,

Dr. Marshall Breger, the
White House liaison to the
Jewish community, scored some
points in the running debate
against the Mondale forces
when he noted that the former
Vice President's two major
Middle East policy advisers are
David Aaron and Robert
Hunter, both of whom worked
for National Security Adviser
Zbigniew Brzezinski during the
four years of the Carter Admin-
istration. Brzezinski, of course,
is widely mistrusted in the
Jewish community because of
his often nasty comments about

recent presentation before
Jewish editors in Washington
that a major theme in the effort
to weaken Jewish support for
Mondale will be this alleged

over the campaign.
counsel and his unofficial liaison
to the Jewish community,
rejected this argument, noting
that Brzezinski was quite out-
spoken in his memoirs in
attacking Mondale for being too
pro-Israel during the Carter
Administration. Both Aaron and
Hunter, If shin said, have their
own views about Israel views
which are supposedly very dif-
ferent from those of Brzezinski.
This was further
by Morris Amitay,
executive director
American Israel Public Affairs
Committee (AIPAC). Amitay
has become very active in the
Mondale campaign this year.
Now a private political consult-
ant and lawyer in Washington,
he was often at bitter odds with
Brzezinski. The former AIPAC
lobbyst defended both Aaron
and hunter as solid supporters
of Israel.
All of which sets the stage for

to go to our homeland Israel will
not die. As I speak today many
Jewish people in Ethiopia and
many more in refugee camps
continue to suffer, to sleep on the

Mayor Tom Bradley, in a

Israel's efforts in rescuing
Ethiopian Jews.
Setting aside a ruling made
last year which denied Supple-
mentary Security Income (SSI)
to a disabled Holocaust victim
because she receives reparations
from the West German govern-
ment, the federal Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeal has granted a
petition by Bet Tzedek Legal
Services, a local Jewish legal aid
society, for a rehearing of the
case, Terry Friedman, the
agency's legal director, reported.
According to an order filed
here June 12 and signed by Chief
Judge James Browning, a
majority of the 23 judges on the
Ninth Circuit voted to reconsider
the appeal of Felicia Grunfeder, a
45-year-old who is psycholog-
ically disabled from wartime
childhood injuries suffered in the
Warsaw Ghetto and in a Nazi
concentration camp. No date has
been set for the rehearing.
The rehearing decision came
almost exactly one year after a
panel made up of three judges of
the Ninth Circuit ruled unani-
mously in support of a lower
federal court ruling denying
Grunfeder's claim for SSI against
the Social Security Administra-
tion, which treats German
reparations payments as
"countable income" in determin-
ing eligibility for SSI, a federal
aid program for the needy
disabled, blind and elderly
Jana Zimmer, a Bet Tzedek at-
torney, said there are about
50,000 recipients of German
reparations living in the Untied
States. Bet Tzedek attorneys
estimate that several thousand
needy Holocaust survivors could
be affected by the outcome of the
Grunfeder case.
Grunfeder had been getting
SSI payments until it was deter-
mined she was also getting small
monthly benefits under the
German Restitution Act as com-
pensation for the injuries she
suffered during the war.
In the ruling nullifying Grun-
feder's right to SSI payments,
the three-judge panel held that
reparations were no different
