The talks are expected to
resume in about two weeks, in an
Israel locale. The heads of the
Israeli delegation, Foreign
Ministry Director General David
Kimche, and Gen. Avraham
Tamir, director general of the
Prime Minister's Office, have
returned from Cairo. They had
been there pressing the Egyptians
for a compromise on the
machinery for settling the Taba
THE 1979 Israel-Egypt peace
treaty prescribes conciliation and
arbitration of disputes between
the two countries which cannot be
resolved through negotiations.
The Egyptians have been deman-
ding that the Taba dispute be sub-
mitted to international arbitration
with a deadline set in advance for
a decision.
The Israelis are now proposing
a mixed process of conciliation
and arbitration which they con-
tend would be less costly and time-
consuming than arbitration and
would allow the mutually agreed-
upon arbitrator a greater degree
of flexibility.
What Israel apparently seeks is
a compromise decision on Taba
which will give neither country all
it demands, hopefully eliminating
the tensions that could result from
a decision that fully favored one
side over the other. But the Egyp-
tians remain adamant in their in-
sistence on arbitration now.
TABA IS ONLY one issue in
the "package deal" approach by
which Israel hopes to settle all of
its outstanding differences with
Egypt. In the round of talks just
ended, the Egyptians were said to
have been very forthcoming on
other bilateral matters. They
were reported to have agreed to
the creation of joint teams to
search for the bodies of Israeli
soldiers still posted missing in
Sinai 12 years after the Yom Kip-
pur War.
Egypt has also agreed to pay
several million dollars as its share
toward rehousing some 5,000

The State Department
declared last week that if
the Palestine Liberation
Organization meets the
"well-known" conditions of
the United States, the U.S.
is ready to "open up a
substantive political
dialogue" with the PLO.
But State Department deputy
spokesman Edward Djerejian
made it clear that this would re-
quire more than statements to the
press by PLO chief Yasir Arafat.
"If Arafat and the PLO explicitly
accept United Nations Security
Council Resolutions 242 and 338
and recognize Israel's right to ex-
ist, the U.S. will then be prepared
to enter into a substantive
political dialogue with the PLO,"
he said. He added, "That has been
and remains our position."
DJEREJIAN indicated that the
acceptance would have to come
not only from Arafat but from the
PLO's executive comittee which

New Austerity Package
Critics Say It Doesn't Cut Deeply Enough
The government's new
economic austerity package
announced late Sunday
night came under sharp
criticism this week.
Economic pundits said it
was an arbitrary selection
among available options and
not a well thoughtout
economic policy.
Some members of the Likud
Knesset faction accused the
Labor-Likud coalition govern-
ment which produced the package
of leaning too heavily on tax-
payers instead of finding ways to
cut government costs.
The package contains more than
20 items, many of which will have
to clear legislative hurdles in the
Knesset. They represent, more or
less, the austerity concepts of
Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai
(Likud-Liberal) who was strongly
backed by Laborite Premier
Shimon Peres.
AS THE package took shape in
the course of a grueling,
acrimonious 12-hour Cabinet
debate, it became clear that the
government has indeed opted for
further revenue raising and cur-
rency conservation measures
rather than new, drastic spending
cuts. The reason is easily
While many of the new
measures are bound to anger
various segments of the public,
they were considered preferable
to large scale unemployment, the
inevitable result of reduced
government expenditures. The
government and its multitude of
agencies is one of the country's
largest employers.
According to government
spokesmen, the package was
designed to achieve three aims:
increase the government's
revenue; save foreign currency;
and to cool or slow down the
economy which, eventually,
should curb inflation. It was the
unexpected 19.4 percent upsurge
in the April consumer price index
that triggered Sunday's Cabinet
0MOST fiercely controversial
and unpopular of the new
measures is the 100 percent rise in
the travel head tax. It was
doubled from $150 to $300 for
every person travelling abroad
plus 20 percent of the air fare to
their destination.
At the same time, the foreign
currency allowance for overseas
travellers was reduced from
$1,000 to $800 per person. These
measures will remain in effect
unitl Sept. 15, the end of the vaca-
tion travel season.
The Finance Ministry said the
higher travel tax was urgently
needed to discourage overseas
travel which entails the expen-
diture of foreign currency. Those
Israelis who pay the tax will be
contributing substantially to
government revenues, the
ministry note. Peres and Modai, in
fact, wanted the travel tax upped
to $500 per capita.
WARNED AT one point that
Israelis living abroad may re-
nounce their citizenship because it
would become too expensive to
return home for visits, Peres
reportedly retorted angrily, "If
that's all their passport is worth
to them, they can go to hell."
An income producing measure
which will affect thousands of
poorer families is the steep rise in
rents at the government housing
projects, Amidar and Amigoor.
Hitherto, the rents were kept at
artificially low levels.
Additional revenue will come
from a two percent rise in the
Value Added Tax (VAT) from
15 to 17 percent. The idea behind
this is to stimulate exports by cur-
bing local demand. The same pur-
pose motivated the increased
sales tax imposed on 58 "luxury"
items, many of them imports.
reduce its expenditures by
slashing its subsidies on fuel,
public transportation and basic
foodstuffs. This should save the
Treasury substantial sums but the
immediate effect will be to in-
crease inflation. New prices will
be announced at the end of this
month for gas, milk, bread, meat
and other consumer items. They
are expected to go up by 30-40
percent and even higher in the
case of public transportation.
To cool the economy, the
government imposed a three-
month freeze on all new govern-
ment contracts and a partial
freeze of government credits.
There are to be no wage hikes in
the public sector over that period,
apart from the regular cost-of-
living increments. Modai stressed
to reporters that the jrovernment-
Histadrut-employers package deal
currently in effect would not be
changed. The subsidy cuts are
within the framework of the
package, he said.
Apart from subsidized items,
the prices of all other products
will increase by an average of 20
percent before the end of the
month, economic analysts said.
THERE WERE some positive
aspects to the new program. The
government will reduce the in-
come tax of workers and
employers in export-oriented in-
dustries by 10 and five percent
respectively. Modai conceded that
the reductions were minimal but
called them "a signpost for the
Finally, the Cabinet approved a
measure that would forbid the
Bank of Israel, the country's cen-
tral bank, from lending money to
the Treasury. This means the
Treasury will not be able to print
new Shekels, a device it has
resorted to for the past year simp-
ly to pay the government's bills.
But this restriction will become ef-
fective only gradually over a three
year period.

and Likud, had reportedly urged a
far bolder approach massive
devaluation of the Shekel (which
now stands at over 1,000 to $1),
dismantling of the linkage system
which ties all wages to inflation,
and a stiff tax on self-employed
persons and corporations.
Energy Minister Moshe Shahal
told reporters he had urged the
government to increase its income
from taxes but to ease the burden
on wage-earners. He said self-
employed persons and corpora-
tions paid little or no taxes which
was unfair.
Such a measure had long been Shaha, one of ^ country.s

Although Peres and Modai re-
jected more drastic measures pro-
posed by some ministers on
grounds they would lead to
massive unemployment, the
government agreed "to discipline

Seventh Israel
Bond Development issue of
$750 Million Announced
A Seventh Development Issue
| of $750 million is now being of-
j fered by State of Israel Bonds in
its continuing efforts to provide
maximum proceeds for the
economic development of Israel.
The new Government of Israel
issue was recently approved by
the Knesset, the Parliament of
The announcement of the new
issue was made by David B.
Hermelin, National Campaign
Chair of the Bond Organization,
and Yehudah Halevy, president.
Since its inception in 1981, the
Bond Organization has sold more
than $7.1 billion in various Israel
securities which has helped to
develop every aspect of Israel's
economy. Close to $4 billion has
been redeemed by the Govern-
ment of Israel.
Noting the critical period
through which Israel's economy is
now passing, the Bond leaders
declared, "Proceeds from our new
Seventh Development Issue will
build the nation's infrastructure
and strengthen its economy, thus
providing jobs and helping to ex-
pand Israel's high technology
industries, a key to increasing ex-
ports and improving the balance
of trade deficit."
The 4 percent Bond matures 15
years from the date of issue. A
minimum purchase of $500 is re-
quired. Interest will be paid by
check once a year.
Tourists holding these bonds a
year or more may cash up to
$2,500 per person, per month, for
expenses when visiting Israel.
Charitable institutions in Israel
may cash bonds that are three or
more years old on 120 days writ-
ten notice.
The bonds are freely
transferable after May 1, 1990.
Prior to that date, they may be
transferred to the State of Israel,
the Development Corporation for
Israel, organizations to which con-
tributions are tax-deductible, and
other permissible transferees
designated by the State of Israel,
such as intra-family transfers.
Information and prospectus are
available in the South County
Israel Bond office at 2200 North
Federal Highway, Suite 206, Boca
Raton, 368-9221.
An intensive two month cam-
paign in South Palm Beach Coun-
ty to convert all unpaid Israel
Bond commitments into cash to
help overcome Israel's economic
crisis has been announced by
Harold Kay, Cash Chair.
The special drive will be held in
May and June in response to an
urgent request from Israel for
Bond dollars to help Israel's
economic development in this
critical period which has seen
drastic austerity measures impos-
ed on Israel's citizens.
The cash effort in South Palm
Beach County is part of a coast-to-
coast campaign in major com-
munities throughout the United
States which is being led by Ar-
thur Joseph of Teaneck, New
Jersey, who is serving as National
Cash Mobilization Chairman.
In announcing the local cash
campaign, Kay asserted, "Israel
has asked the Bond Organization
to furnish as much cash as possi-
ble in May and June to help the na-
tion overcome serious economic
"Bond dollars are urgently
needed to provide research and
development funds for Israel's
high-technology industries, the
key to increasing exports, improv-
ing the country's balance of trade
and reducing inflation.
"By answering Israel's call for
cash, we can make a real contribu-
tion in helping Israel strengthen
its economy and returning it on
the road to economic progress."
The South Palm Beach County
Cash Committee will be responsi-
ble for mobilizing the services of
Bond volunteers to make personal
visits, set up telephone squads and
organize special cash events dur-
ing May and June.
Volunteers will make telephone
calls to all Bond purchasers who
have not yet sent in their
payments, as well as those in-
dividuals who have not made their
Bond purchases for 1985, urging
them to do so immediately.
Friends of Israel who want to
serve as volunteers can do so by
calling 368-9221.

Eliezer Ben Yehuda called

new in Jerusalem." The
New York Times, at the top
of its front page of March
14,1908, stated that "It was
the first motor car ever seen
in Jerusalem, and created a
sensation among the
populace." The Reuters
dispatch from Jerusalem
noted that "The first motor

The driver of the first motor car
in the Holy Land was Charles J.
Glidden of Boston, the well-known
adventurer, whose round-the-

of the automobile covered every
continent during the first decade
of this century.
Mar. 13, the day that Glidden
and his wife drove their car into

wealthy American, Charles J. Glidden.

exchange in Lowell itself. After
earning a sizeable fortune from
his telephone interests, Glidden
retired at the turn of the century
and resolved to popularize the
automobile as a vehicle for travel
anywhere in the world. Starting in
1901, he led the Glidden Tours on
to every continent during the next
decade, covering over 45,000
miles in the process.
A noted adventurer, he became
a balloonist as well, and made
over 50 ascensions in the United
States and in other countries. His
favorite travel companion was his
wife and together they became
the pioneers of automobile
Since the port at Jaffa made the
landing of Glidden's car too dif-
ficult, the ship on which they were
travelling docked at Haifa, where
unloading the vehicle proved
much simpler. "The American
motor tourist and his wife," as the
consul called them, were now
ready for their excursion.
THE CAR, whose make is not
known, had a four-cylinder engine
of 24 horse-power strength, high
clearance, and weighed 3,500
pounds with a seating capacity of
five. The car ran on gasoline,
which, according to the report,
was available at the sea ports of
Haifa, Jaffa and Beirut.
Unfortunately, there was no
good coastal road south from
Haifa to Jaffa, since most travel
between those two ports was by
sea. "The roads were impassable
in places, owing to heavy rains
just preceding their arrival," the
consul wrote, but added that after
the rainy season the road would be
"quite practicable for the motor
Even then Haifa had its tourist
problems, since the consul sug-
gested that "proper facilities" for
landing should be built at Jaffa,
because from that city, Jerusalem
and the other parts of the country
were much more accessible.
THE TOUR itself covered 750
miles, including the following
locations: Haifa, Jaffa, Ramie,
Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho,
the Jordan, the Dead Sea,
Ramallah, Hebron. Nablus,
Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee!
Damascus and Beirut. Wallace
stressed "the ease with which the
tour was made," also noting that
roads such as those to Jericho and
Nablus, considered not prac-
ticable for motoring, were
traversed without difficulty.
The journey to Jericho includes
the Jordan and the Dead Sea, and
Wallace pointed out that such a
trip usually required two days by
carriage or horse and was a
wearisome ride. Both in the con-
sular report and in Ben Yehuda's
article it was noted that on Satur-
day, Mar. 14, Glidden left
Jerusalem at 9 a.m. and returned
at 6 p.m., having visited Jericho
and all its surroundings. The icing
on the cake was Wallace's note,
"The parties accompanying Glid-
den said that it was the most plea-
sant trip they had ever made to
these points."
In his report, the consul em-
phasized how courteously the
Gliddens were received by the
'natives' wherever they went. In
Hebron an American missionary
said that the car's arrival heralded
the "wildest and most en-
thusiastic time Hebron has ex-
perienced since the crowning of
King David as King of the Jews."

gave the Washington Post and the
Los Angeles Times in Amman in

people to "self-determination."
Djerejian said that he had not seen
anything by Arafat accepting the

stressed that the U.S. has long
clearly stated its position on
Palestinian self-determination.
-''We have ..always beljeyed the

tion of the Arab-Israel conflict,"
he said.
DJEREJIAN then listed
specific ways in which the U.S.
has emphasized this position. "It
is U.S. policy that any agreement
must address the legitimate rights
of the Palestinian people. There
should be Palestinian participa-
tion at every stage of the
negotiating process. Any agree-
ment on the final status of the
West Bank and Gaza should have
the prior consent of the in-
habitants of the territories."
Finally, Djerejian stressed that
"It is the firm view of the m
that the best chance for a durablt
just and lasting peace is offered!,
the self-government by tin I
Palestinians of the West Bank ant
Gaza in association with Jordan."
The PLO has always describe
self-determination as a Palesti-
nian state which both Israel;
the U.S. oppose.
Secretary of State George |
Shultz, in his recent visit to Isnei,
Egypt and Jordan, sought to l_
a means of- selecting Palestinia
representatives for a Jordaniit
Palestinian delegation for talk-
with the U.S. that would lead It
direct negotiations between tin
joint delegation and Israel.
SHULTZ WAS quoted as aj-
ing that he found a "genuine
sense of movement" toward
negotiations during his talks in
the Middle East. However, Jordat
still maintains that the Palestinian
members of the delegation must
be members of the PLO while
Israel has made it clear it would
never negotiate with members of
a terrorist organization.
Whether there is any movement
may depend on what happens
when King Hussein of Jordan
meets here with President
Reagan later this month.

EDITOR, The Jewish Floridian:
The visit of President Reagan to
the Bitburg cemetery shall ever
remain a blot upon our nation. His
original plan not to visit a nearby
concentration camp is an insult to
the memories of the millions who
were brutally murdered in this
devilish scheme at mass genocide.
A visit to a cemetery that contains
the remains of the SS troops can-
not be condoned. The reason for
this visit as given by our Presi-
dent's men was to form some sort
of reconciliation with the German
people. The reason for not visiting
the concentration camp grounds
was "Not to open old wounds."
This is pure sham. The Presi-
dent was well aware of the world
protest that came forth when
plans for his visit were announc-
ed. The Jewish community arose
as one in protest. All of the vet-
erans groups protested. Many
senators and congressmen pro-
tested but to no avail. To totally
disregard the sincere protests of
those against evil and to accede to
the wishes of Chancellor Kohl can-
not be condoned. Realizing their
error a condescension was made
to include a visit to a nearby con-
centration camp, but no change in
the plans to visit Bitburg.
Mr. President, Elie Wiesel'selo-
quent appeal to you not to go to
Bitburg was heard by millions. He
pleaded with you to forgo Bitburg
It was an appeal for good over
evil. To him this was a moral issue
which could not be compromised.
How can you agree to honor
assassins and disregard their vic-
tims? The world knows that w
SS troops were Hitler's specif
guard to carry out his evil intent
at mass genocide.
Your visit to the concentration
camp confirmed to the world that
the Holocaust did happen ana
serves as a lesson that this must
never happen again. That mass
genocide has no place in this worm
if mankind is to survive. A human
desire on your part to do good as
against the evils that exist in your
visit could have avoided the wJ
temess and disappointment ot an
who believe in decency, moramv
and justice. You and your pla-
ners will have to sleep witli "-

"Hiroshi couldn't accept the

Okamoto then turned to the

belief close to his own feelings
that one God ruled the universe.

about the people of Israel," Mrs.
Okamoto said.

Judaism, the more he wanted to

Okamoto contacted U.S. Army of-

The chaplain could not teach
Okamoto because Christian
chaplains might think he was try-

referred to a Russian-born Jew
who married a Japanese woman.
Together, they studied Hebrew
and Chumash for three years.
Okamoto urged his future wife
to start studying Judaism. Pro-

she attended Shabbat services.

The White House liaison
to the Jewish community,
|Dr. Marshall Breger, has
taken an enormous amount
jof grief in recent days as the
loutcry over President
Reagan's controversial visit
to the Bitburg cemetery
I escalated.
The 38-year-old official, a
I University of Pennsylvania and
Oxford educated-professor on
leave from New York Law School,
has discovered what many of his
predecessors also learned, usually
very painfully namely, that it is
almost the very nature of that
White Hpuse job which causes
serious headaches for its
Breger, like his predecessors,
lias to interpret Jewish concerns
to the White House. At the same
time, he has to promote the Ad-
ministration and its positions in
the Jewish community. Occa-
sionally, there will be conflicts.
IN RECENT years, this was
vividly demonstrated, especially
in 1978, when Mark Siegel, then
President Jimmy Carter's liaison
to the Jewish community, resign-
ed to protest the Administration's
F-15 "package" sale to Saudi
Arabia. Subsequent liaisons, in-
cluding Ed Sanders of Los
Angeles who also worked for
Carter, and Jacob Stein who serv-
ed Reagan, also had many per-
sonally tough times.
But Breger is not about to quit
over Bitburg. He has taken a
broader view of the matter. He is
personally convinced that Presi-
dent Reagan is indeed very sen-
sitive to the meaning of the
Holocaust and certainly deeply
committed to Israel and other
matters of Jewish concern.
"I'm excited about working for
a President who has such concern
and commitment for Israel and for
the Jewish people," he said in an
Breger has been, in many
respects, the point man in the Ad-
ministration's dealings with a
very angry American Jewish com-
munity. It has been an extremely
difficult assignment for the Or-
thodox Jew, who undeservedly
has been accused of all sorts of
terrible things by some fellow
THERE WAS, for example, the
matter of Elie Wiesel's remarks in
the White House when Reagan
presented him with the Congres-
sional Gold Medal of Achieve-
ment. The New York Times later
reported that Breger had sought
to limit Wiesel's speech to only
three minutes. Wiesel insisted
that he had to telephone White
House Chief of Staff Donald
Regan who then reportedly gave
him the green light to speak as
long as he wanted.
I'm excited about working
for a President who cares
But Regan subsequently told an
Associated Press reporter that he
only gave Wiesel a five-minute
time limit, citing the President's
busy schedule.
Wiesel spoke for only five
minutes, delivering an emotional
and extremely moving personal
plea to the President to drop Bit-
burg from his schedule. There was
a clear sense of high drama in the
Roosevelt room as Wiesel spoke.
But before the public ceremony,
which was widely covered by the
news media, Wiesel also had been
granted a private meeting with
Reagan. White House officials
knew that Wiesel, like so many
other Jews, especially Holocaust
survivors, was understandably
angry about Bitburg. But they
still had hoped that he would make
his pitch privately and not "lec-
ture" the President publicly.
That, they recognized, would
make it even more difficult
politically for Reagan to back
down later.
WIESEL'S objectives, they
said, were certainly good, but his
tactics later proved counter-
productive. After that exchange,
the new and very influential
White House communications
director, Pat Buchanan, and
others advised the President
against changing his position.
They feared unfavorable com-
parisons with Jimmy Carter, who
was widely seen as weak and
uncertain during his presidency.
That helps to explain why White
House officials are so angry at
Wiesel today. But they recognize
that Wiesel is a genuine hero in
the Jewish community, and that it

would serve no purpose to go
public with their criticisms.
"My own lesson is that I better
not go away on vacation," Breger
said only half in jest in the inter-
view, noting that he had been
celebrating Passover in Israel
with his family "when the mess
was in full blast."

this Bitburg affair. He spoke of
the need for the Jewish communi-

issues before they are allowed to

Most disturbing was Kalb's
report of a conversation with
natives of Bitburg. One, "who
looked to be in his 20's, is quoted
as saying, 'We Germans and
Americans had been cooperating

'until the Jews began to make

"An old woman complained that
Mr. Regan had spent only eight
minutes at the cemetery. 'You
know why the visit had to be cut
back? Because of the Jews.' She
stalked away to join a group of
friends, nodding in agreement.
"A man with a cane stopped and
said, 'If they don't like it here, the
Jews, let them go away. We were
better off without them in Ger-
many.' There were only 28,000
left, he was reminded. 'Too
many,' he replied."
people of Bitburg are pleased that
Reagan did not yield to pressure
to cancel his visit. "But it's clear
they resent their new notoriety
and equally clear whom they con-
sider responsible for the
unwelcomed change: the Jews and
media. The Jews are seen as a
group separate from Germans and
Americans an indigestible
lump, a foreign body. The media
are seen as intrusive and irrespon-
sible and, somehow, controlled by
the Jews," Kalb wrote.
Mobutu Frankly Expects Big
Israeli Investments in Zaire
Continued from Page 1
diplomatic ties with Israel as
Zaire did two years ago Mobutu
said, "It is not for me to do that."
He indicated that his resumption
of diplomatic relations with Israel
in 1983 had drawn criticism even
from some sympathetic neighbors
who thought he had been too
But Israeli officials seemed very
pleased with the outcome of
Mobutu's visit, the first three days
of which were at the govern-
ment's invitation. He spent part
of the rest of the time as the guest
of Anglo-Jewish businessman,
Leon Tamman. The officials said
that Tamman, an international
financier, plans to invest some
$400 million in Zaire and was
seeking export incentives from
the Israeli government for that
THEY NOTED that Zaire's
economy was improving. The ef-
fects of the energy crisis of the
1970s is fading, and the prices of
minerals Zaire produces
diamonds, copper, cobalt and
uranium are rising on the world
The officials said Mobutu sought
no additional military assistance
from Israel but rather a reorder-
ing of certain aspects of the ex-
isting aid package, mainly train-
ing for his armed forces. But he
asked for and was granted better
credit terms for military pur-
chases in Israel.
The officials stressed that when
Mobutu fell ill and had to cancel a
visit to the holy sites in East
Jerusalem, his illness was ge-
nuine, not "diplomatic." The
Afrian leader was running fever
when he called on President Her-
zog, they said. He and his party
did in fact visit the holy places
later in the week.
Finally, the Israeli officials were
gratified that Mobutu, accom-
panied by his wife and an en-
tourage of 110 persons, paid for
the private part of his visit, most
of it spent in Herzliya where the
visitors were guests at a new lux-
ury hotel owned by Tamman.

It has been an eye-opening ex-
perience for Breger. He has had a
somewhat more difficult and
challenging responsibility tiian
many of his predecessors, since
there are no Jews on the senior
White House staff or in the
Cabinet. He has often been alone
in the White House hot seat.
BUT DESPITE Bitburg, he has
won the confidence and respect of
senior Israeli diplomats in
Washington and many American
Jewish leaders, especially lob-
byists from the American Israel
Public Affairs Committee
(AIPAC). They have appreciated
his own commitment and
At the same time, his standing
in the White House, especially in
the eyes of Chief of Staff Regan
and Vice President George Bush,
has increased. Especially in the
aftermath of Bitburg, for exam-
ple, they are checking almost
everything having any remote
connection to Israel and Jews
with him.
He has been seen by his White
House colleagues to be a loyal
team player. They are delighted
that he has not emerged as so-
meone simply interested in grand-
standing. That has automatically
increased his own clout.
Breger had worked at the con-
servative Heritage Foundation, a
leading "think tank" in
Washington, just prior to joining
the White House staff. A genuine
"neo-conservative," he thus has
the proper political and ideological
credentials and connections to win
friends and influence people in the
Administration. But he recognizes
that it will by no means be easy.
"The lesson for myself is the ex-
tent to which problems can crop
up, of major proportions, without
any appreciation for what will be a
problem or will not be a problem,"
he said. "When I discussed and
gave my views on the whole trip
to Germany at the end of last
year, one would not have con-
templated the sequence of
misunderstandings and mistakes
which led to the Bitburg visit. So
again, one must always be
prepared for the unexpected."
WHEN ASKED about the long-
term meaning of all of the con-
troversy, Breger conceded that
some "problems of historial
perceptions" have been created
for the President. "But I believe
that historians, after all, perhaps
more than journalists, look at in-
cidents which are representative
of an entire period about which
they are focusing." Bitburg, he
said, will be seen in its proper

Rebbetzin Recalls How Japanese Husband Came to Israel's One God
Ovadyah Okamoto went
from despair over defeat
to rabbinical studies.
Continued from Page 5-
said. "This was the most impor-
tant element of Judaism pro-
claiming to the world that God is
one. There is none else," said Mrs.
Okamoto, who is not a traditional
Japanese woman, since she had a
college education.
Neither she nor her husband
faced any major problems with
their parents over their interest in
Judaism. "The Japanese regard
religion as a very personal thing.
They simply thought that
whatever we wanted to embrace
was our own business."
Still, Okamoto's mother, who
was a traditional Buddhist and
Shintoist. which she thought were
the philosophy and religion of the
Japanese people, complained one
day after Okamoto started observ-
ing Shabbet in his home. "Why
are you worshiping a foreign
God? his mother asked.
"1 am not worshiping a foreign
God. I am worshiping UU God who
created the universe and
everything in it. This is a religion
not only for the Jewish people, but
for all mankind." Okamoto told
his mother.
"She probably didn't like it. but
she simply accepted it." Mrs.
Okamoto said.
DURING HIS continued
studies. Okamoto came across a
book by Leo Baeck entitled
"Essence of Judaism," which
stated that Judaism is open to all
people. Okamoto now looked for a
way to embrace Judaism in a more
formal fashion.
"He wanted to go to Israel so
that he could study," Mrs.
Okamoto said, adding that Israeli
institutions were not in a position
to give a scholarship to a Japanese
student. Nor did he find a sym-

"myth" that Israel is responsible
for the lack of peace in the Middle

declared recently in accepting an
honorary Doctor of Philoa
degree from Tel Aviv University
The former U.S. Ambassador to
fnited Nations was cited for
her "extraordinary servi>

an-Israel relations" at an
academic convocation a I
Rockefeller University in New
Prof. Moshe Many, president of
Tel Aviv University, conferred
the degree and announced the
creation of the Jeane J.
Kirkpatrick institute for Public
Leadership and Public Policy to
train men and women for leader-
ship roles in Israeli government
service. He saluted Dr.
Kirkpatrick as a "woman of
valor" who combines "political
savvy, real wisdom and a keen
sense of justice."
Mrs. Lyn P. Meyerhoff of
Baltimore, a former associate of
Dr. Kirkpatrick's at the U.N.,
served as chairwoman. In atten-
dance was Lester Entin of Boca
Raton, a member of the Board of
Directors of the University.

Kirkpatrick said, adding:
"Bj returning the Sinai with its
guaranteed territorial buffer and
its billions of dollars of develop-
ment. Israel has taken the
greatest risk for peace of any na-
tion in this century," she said.
"The fighting among Shi'ites,
Christians, Sunis, Syrians, the
PLO and other factions that
destroyed peace in Lebanon gives
lie to the myth that Israel is the
cause of Lebanon's problem," she
Dr. Kirkpatrick scored the
PLO's alleged new attitude
towards Israel, asserting,
"They've never formally recogniz-
ed UN Resolutions 242 and 338.
They're not ready to admit
Israel's existence and negotiate
directly with her. They still find it
impossible to even pronounce tier
name. And they are again trying
to infiltrate."
The former U.S. Ambassador
hailed Israel for its determination
to develop its educational and pro-
grams despite ongoing military
threats and serious economic pro
blemi and praised Tel Aviv
University tor its rontributioi
training "Leaders with excep
wisdom and skill."
Rabbi Herbert A. Friedman.
president of the American

pathetic friend in the Orthodox,
who would not accept him as a stu-
dent because he wasn't Jewish.
But through the help of a
Reform rabbi, Okamoto eventual-
ly received a scholarship from a
Jewish philanthropist, who was in-
terested in proselytizing, to at-
tend Hebrew Union College-
Jewish Institute of Religion.
IN 1958. Okamoto and his
fiance were married in a Jewish
ceremony. They settled in Cincin-
nati, where he started his studies
as rabbinical student. The
Okamotos formally converted to
Judaism in 1961.
He took "Abraham" as his
Hebrew name, while she took
After receiving his rabbinical
ordination in 1964, Okamoto
taught Hebrew and Bar Mitzvah
lessons in Tokyo for one year
liefore he and his wife moved to
Fngland. where he received a
irch fellowship at the Univer-
sity of Oxford in manuscript
studios. The Okamotos stayed
there until 1970, when he received
a teaching position at the Univer
sity of Miami in its religion
Mi part merit.
Okamoto taught a variety of
religion courses at the university
until 1978 when he was stricken
with "Lou Gehrig's" disease.
A HIGHLIGHT of his rab
binical career occurred in the mid-
dle 1970s, when Okamoto led
High Holiday services in the
Miami area for Jewish people who
were not affiliated with a
synagogue. Because all other can-
tors were working the holidays,
Okamoto had to hire a non-Jew to
sing Kol Nidre.
"It was the most beautiful ser-
vice that I had ever attended
because all of the Jewish people
who came were mostly our friends
who wanted to come where their
friend the first Japanese rabbi
conducted the service," Mrs.
Okamoto said.
Together, the Okamotos lived a
Jewish life, keeping kosher in the
home and raising their two sons as
Jews. Even today, Mrs. Okamoto
attends services at Temple Beth
MRS. OKAMOTO hopes that
her sons will marrry Jewish girls.
"But what I'm interested in is
that my children pursue my hus-
band's desire to carry the torch of
the Torah. In return, they will be
good Jews and contribute to
Judaism through their work and
influence the people they come in-
to contact with." Mrs. Okamoto
Rabbi Okamoto carried the
"torch of the Torah" with him. No
doubt, the thousands of students
he taught at University of Miami
can attest to that.

Tradition Benefits B'nai Torah's New Building

"All in the Family" has a Jewish
connotation for the Glassman
family. For three generations, it
has been their tradition to
enhance Judaism through con-
tributions to the Temples.
In 1956, Harry and Fanny
Glassman donated a Torah, in
1959 contributed towards the
Chapel in the Oxford Circle
Jewish Community Center in
Philadelphia. In 1959, their son.
Bernard Glassman, followed
tradition with a similar gesture to
the Temple.
Now Bernard Glassman and his
sons, Larry and Steve, developers
of the Pines of Delray, have pledg-
ed their financial aid to the Chapel
in the new Temple B'Nai Torah
Congregation soon to be con-
structed in Boca Raton.
The closely knit family prefers
to keep a low profile on their
religious donations. However,
Larry Glassman states, "Our
devotion and support to the new
building may serve as an example
to encourage further essential
pledges for this indispensable
religious need."
Bernard Glassman signs his
pledge for the construction of
the Chapel in the new B'nai
Torah Congregation building
in Boca Raton.
B'nai Mitzvah

math. His favorite activities are

horseback riding, tennis and
break dancing.
On Saturday, May 25, Jared
Robinson, son of Joyce and Dr.
Gerald Robinson, was called to the
Torah of Temple Beth El of Boca
Raton as a Bar Mitzvah. Jared is a
7th grade student at Boca Raton
Academy and attends the Temple
Jar*4 Robinson
