Day School Doubles
OpensTSiddle School
The Jewish Community Day
School has doubled its campus size
for the coming school year, adding
a fully equipped science lab, a
media center and library and
classroom space.
The school, which is launching a
middle school program this year,
took over the entire building
which it formerly shared with pro-
fessional offices on 35th street,
giving it a facility of more than
10,000 square feet in the day
school campus, in addition to the
satellite campus which opened last
year for the preschool and
kindergarten programs.
Three years ago, when the day
school became an agency of the
South.Cbunty Jewish Federation,
there were 36 students housed in
small, cramped quarters. There
are now more than 200 students
enrolled in the two campuses, en-
joying a wide variety of programs.
The preschool program, which
was the impetus for building the
middle school (grades 6-8) for
which director Burt Lowlicht has
developed a new curriculum. A
full time science instructor, and a
full time media resource person
were added to the staff; the com-
puter department has extended
its hours of instruction, which
translates into a computer class
daily for every child in the middle
school and, given the Federa-
tion policy of classes no larger
than 20, access to his or her com-
puter for every student.
The school library has also
grown tremendously in both
secular and Judaic books and
reference materials, including
audio-visual aids, the use of which
will be directed bv the new
satellite campus, has been so suc-
cessful under the direction of An-
drea Mossovitz, that it now has a
waiting list for the coming fall.
At the other end, an eighth
grade was added this year to a

Israel's trade with many African
states is flourishing, in many
cases much more so than in the
days Israel had full diplomatic
relations with them.
According to Kimche, who has
devoted considerable time and ef-
fort to improve relations with
Asian and African nations, many
Black African leaders privately
expressed their regrets that their
countries broke with Israel 15
years ago. But they are deterred
from resuming formal ties for fear
Murphy Returns
To Mideast
Richard Murphy, Assistant
Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian
Affairs, is going to the Middle
East, apparently in an at-
tempt to revive the peace
process following the failure of
the Arab Summit in
Casablanca, Morocco last
week to support the peace
efforts of King Hussein of
The State Department an-
nouncement of the Murphy trip
did not mention the summit and,
as read by Deputy spokesman
Charles Redman, had an op-
timistic tone to it. Murphy is
going to the Mideast "to consult
further on how best to move the
peace process forward," Redman
said. He said Murphy will be
visiting Israel, Egypt and
Jordan and there was a
possibility Ahat the top could be
extended to other countries.
But Redman stressed that "no
final decision has yet been made
on Murphy meeting with a joint
Palestinian-Jordanian delegation
since the U.S. has still not
approved any of the Palestinians
on a list sent it by Hussein as
members of the Palestinian
"As we have constantly said,
we are prepared to take part in
such a meeting if arrangements
can be mutually agreed and if
the meeting clearly leads to our
objectives of direct negotiations
between the oarties," Redman
said. "It remains our conviction
that only through a negotiated
settlement can a just and lasting
peace between Israel and all its
neighbors be achieved."
(In Israel, meanwhile. Hana
Siniora. editor of the East
Jerusalem Arabic newspaper A
Fajar and named as one of the
West Bank Palestinians to the
joint delegation, told reporters at
the Foreign Press Association
here that the delegation will
meet with Murphy before the
end of the month. Siniora did not
provide additional details. He is
scheduled to soon leave for
Jordan. Another Palestinian
representation from the ad-
ministered territories, Fayez
Abu Radhme, of Gaza, is already
in Jordan.)
A senior State Department
official briefing reporters later
said one of the "options" for this
trip was that Murphy could meet
with the joint Jordanian-
Palestinian delegation if the
obstacles could be overcome. But
he conceded that Hussein is still
insisting that the U.S. talk to
members of the Palestine
Liberation Organization, which
the U.S. refuses to do and which
is why the list has not been
approved. Most of the names on
the list, which was drawn up by
PLO chief Yasir Arafat, are
members of the PLO.
Israel Radio reported last
week that Deputy Secretary of
State John Whitehead told
Israeli officials in Jerusalem that
Hussein stressed to him that he

of losing promised or actual aid
from Arab countries.
In many cases, Arab promises
have "far outstripped" the actual
aid received, Kimche said. But
some African leaders admitted to
him, in their frequent but un-
publicized meetings, that they
feared subversion by the Palestine
Liberation Organization and by
Libya. "One African President
with whom I met not long ago,
said to me: 'You know why I am so
hesitant to reestablish relations? I
don't want to be assassinated.' '
Kimche added, "Libyan sur--.T-
sion is very much in the forefront
of the thinking of African leaders
today. They have seen the exam-
ple of Chad.
America's New Ambassador to Israel, Thomas R. Pickering
(left), made his only appearance before a Jewish audience prior
to taking up his post in Tel Aviv in an address to the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations.
He was introduced by Kenneth J. Bialkin (right). Conference
chairman, as "a man we believe will be a worthy successor to
Sam Lewis. "

South County had five Bar/Bat

visit to Jerusalem, and the special
ceremonies atop the ancient for-
tress of Massada had special
significance. Here, too, the UJA
mission organizers were helpful to
each family in making their own
arrangements for a rabbi and ap-
propriate ceremonies. One of the
families was the Melcers, whose
son Jonathan Lewis was so im-
pressed with the experience he
has already made up his mind to
go back for the summer when he

part of discretion for us not to divide the
impact of our occasional victories.
White House Must Speak
An ongoing, though discreet effort is
underway in Washington where former
colleagues of NASA scientist Arthur
Rudolph are working to convince the right
people in the right place to allow his return
to the U.S. Rudolph was forced to leave the
country last year to avoid prosecution for
his participation in brutalizing slave
laborers at a Nazi rocket factory in World
War II.
Rudolph's past activities are
noteworthy. He was head of the production
of V-2 rockets in a factory attached to the
Dora-Nordhausen concentration camp
where a third to one half of the 60,000
prisoners died because of inhumane
working conditions. But Rudolph later
came to the U.S. as part of a group of
rocket specialists and eventually headed
the Saturn V rocket program that produced
the rocket which brought the Apollo
astronauts to the moon.
Regardless of his past work for NASA,
where he received its highest awards, the
efforts by his colleagues are indeed
troubling, though it becomes especially
disturbing in view of the rehabilitation
efforts and the channels through which his
colleagues have made their voices heard.
One channel is said to be the White House
Communications Office, where some
suggest Rudolph supporters may have an

Rie Confused Purposes
Some members of the American Jewish
community seem to be at least a little bit
ambivalent about the separation of church-
state principle at the same time that the
rest of us applaud, for example, the recent
Supreme Court session that issued a
resounding affirmation that it will not
allow the Constitutional separation wall to
be bulldozed.
In one case involving the principle, the
High Court said that an Alabama law that
permitted voluntary silent prayer in public
schools could simply not be justified in
light of the Constitutional prohibition
Promptly, there were mutterings from
among some Jews that a moment of silent
prayer, provided it was not sectarian,could
do no harm to a well-trained Jewish youth
who would, of course, stick to the last of his
Hebrew school education. Provided in this
instance of those who seek to get around
things is unfortunately too often spelled to
But this would not warrant sufficient
concern did members of the Orthodox
community not promptly voice its
displeasure, in the loudest terms possible,
over another High Court ruling, this one
involving the constitutionality of programs
that provided public school teachers to
parochial schools, including yeshivas. The
court warned: no more.
To which these members of the com-
munity responded with the scathing
criticism that the ruling would be
"devastating" to their Jewish eduational
methods, thus to some extent confusing the
general public because the American
Jewish Congress went all out in hailing the
Court's rejection of the program.
Divide and Conquer
Jews who are Orthodox. It is not that we
are worried about public understanding so
much as that there is cause for concern
stemming from the ancient practice of
divide and conquer.
When on so significant an issue as
church-state separation significant in
the sense that it is part of the lifeblood of

But what Speakes and other
U.S. spokesmen did not say was
that there remains a very basic
difference between these seven
Americans and the freed TWA
hostages. What is well understood
by U.S officials but largely
unspoken in public are the dif-
ferent circumstances surrounding
the capture of the two groups of
FOR ONE thing, the TWA
passengers were businessmen or
tourists on route from Athens to
Rome and then, for most of them,
to New York and home. Without
warning, their plane was com-
mandeered and their lives
threatened. No one had told them
to worry about traveling aboard a
U.S. commercial airliner leaving
Athens. The U.S. government,
before the hijacking, had not
issued any travel advisories about
But the same certainly can not
be said about the situation in
Lebanon. As State Department
spokesman Charles Redman
pointed out on July 30, the United
States has long been aware that
Americans are particularly
vulnerable in the chaos of
Lebanon. "Our first travel ad-
visory for that country was issued
in 1975," he said. "The current
travel advisory, which remains in
force, dates from February, 1984.
No one can assume immunity
from terrorism. We continue to
urge Americans to avoid travel to
Lebanon, and those still present in
the country to take advantage of
opportunities to leave."
Thus, the seven Americans be-
ing held in Lebanon, before they
were kidnapped, were very much
aware of the dangers they faced
; by merely being in that country.
(They were by no means the first
Americans captured by the
various militias in Lebanon.
Unfortunately, there has been a
long history of such assaults, in-
cluding the assassination of the
President of the American
University of Beirut, Malcolm
Kerr, who was murdered shortly
after he arrived in the Lebanese
capital. Three of the Americans
being held in Lebanon are af-
filiated with the American Univer-
sity. Yet they decided for
whatever professional, moral or
personal reasons to accept the
risk of remaining in Lebanon even
after Kerr's death.
EVEN AFTER that murder
and all of the other atrocities of
Lebanon, six of the seven
American captives ignored the
State Department's repeated war-
nings to get out. (The seventh.
William Buckley, a political officer
at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut,
was assigned to that post by the
State Department. He knew it
was dangerous. He theoretically
could have rejected the appoint-
ment, but that would have looked
very bad on his record.)
In a very real sense, all had
volunteered to remain in Beirut

knowing very well the dangers.
This, therefore, represents the
major difference between their
tragic predicament and that of the
TWA passengers who had no real
reason to suspect trouble.
None of this, of course, means
that the U.S. should ease its ef-
forts to free the seven. These peo-
ple should be brought home as
quickly as possible. But it does
help to explain partially why there
is such a different emphasis in
Washington's course of action.
THERE IS a second major dif-
ference as well. During the TWA
affair, there was an address with
which Washington could deal. The
Amal leader, Nabih Bern, had
assumed responsibility for the
welfare of the captives. He was
vulnerable to pressure. An ar-
rangement, therefore, could be
But that is not the case with the
seven. No one has come forward
to claim specific responsibility.
The Syrians insist that they are
trying to help but can't do much.
Even the Shi'ite spiritual leader
Sheik Mohammed Hussein
Fadlallah told The Washington
Post on July 31 that his own ef-
forts to free the Americans have
been fruitless. He denied any links
to the captors.
U.S. officials have repeatedly
insisted that they don't really
know the whereabouts of the cap-
tives or the identity of their
Meanwhile, the waiting game
continues. The White House main-
tains that it will not give in to ter-
rorists' demands. "We will not
make concessions to terrorists,"
Speakes said. "We will not ask
other eovernments to do so. Con-
ceding" to terrorists would be tan-
tamount to caving in to blackmail.
We believe such concessions
would only encourage terrorists
throughout the world to think
these tactics can succeed and
would lead to the taking of more
But the U.S. is still groping for
some solution. "Our refusal to
concede to terrorists does not
mean, however, we're unwilling
to talk," Speakes continued. "We
have been and continue to be in
contact with numerous individuals
and governments in the region in
an effort to free these individuals.
We believe that quiet diplomacy is
the best way to proceed and
believe that detailing our efforts
to obtain their release would be
That is not what the families
want to hear. So the public
pressure from them mounts.
Some U.S. officials fear that that
is exactly what the terrorists are
counting on to eventually win the
release of their comrades in
Kuwait. But for the time being,
there seems to be little that the
Reagan Administration cap do to
halt the pressure or to free the
seven Americans.
Jewish Holidays Are
Doubled In Diaspora
(Note: Joseph B. Pfeffer, a top-
notch scientist who recently moved
into our community, is an
engineer and physicist who work-
ed for many years as an in-

worked at the Technion in Israel
as well. As an avocation, Pfeffer
has studied the Hebrew calendar
with both its religious and
astronomical aspects, on a level
which few scholars, including rab-

many publishers of biblical com-

Establishing Festival Dates
Rosh Hashana is celebrated
worldwide for two days. Yom Kip-
pur is one day, both in Israel and
abroad. However, the other major
festivals prescribed in the Bible
are celebrated one day in Israel
and two days in other lands. Why?
The months of the year are
lunar, according to the Bible. The
153rd commandment is to
establish, by proclamation, the
day on which each month begins.
Only the court in Israel was
authorized to make the proclama-
tion and regulate the calendar.
The court had two criteria
guiding it: (1) whether a given
month had 29 or 30 days; (2)
Whenever Passover was to fall
before the spring season, the year
had to be leaped by adding a 13th
month, so that Passover would oc-
cur in Nisan, the month of barley
ripening, as prescribed in
Each month the moon disap-
pears for approximately two days
one day being the end of the
previous month, and one day after
the true moon birth, at which time
the new crescent can be seen in
the evenibg, The night on which
the new crescent becomes visible
is the beginning of the new month.
Should the new crescent become
visible on the eve of the 30th day
of the old month, this 30th day in
fact becomes the first day of the
new month. The foregoing month
then has only 29 days. If the new
moon is not seen on that night, the
30th day belongs to the outgoing
month, and the next day becomes
the first day of the new .month.
Thus, the reason for having
Hebrew months of 29 or 30 days.
This was the practice when
observing of the moon was used,
up to the middle of the fourth cen-
tury. Since then, to date, the 29 or
30 days has been subject to dif-
ferent rules.
New Moon Testimony
It was obligatory for Israelites
who saw the new moon to appear
in the court in Jerusalem and
testify that they had indeed seen
the new crescent. After examin-
ing the evidence (at least two
separate witnesses were needed),
the court proclaimed and sanc-
tified the New Moon Day (Rosh
Hodesh), and sent messengers out
to the communities to inform
them when it was, so they would
know on which days the holidays
would occur.
The obligation to go to the court
and testify on sighting the new
moon applied even on the Sab-
bath. The phrase in the Torah
says: "which you shall proclaim in
the appointed season." When the
words appointed season are used
with a command, according to the
sages, it takes precedence over
the Sabbath laws. Accordingly,
this applied to the months of
Nisan and Tishri, on which the
observance of holidays depend.
Messengers were sent out to
verify sanctification for the
following six months: Nisan, on
account of Passover; Ab, on ac-
count of the Fast day on the ninth;
Elul, on account of the New Year;
Tishri, on account of Yom Kippur,
Succoth and Shemini Atzeret;
Kislev, on account of Hanukah;
and Adar, on account of Purim.
The messengers were not permit-
ted to violate the Sabbath or
holidays in performing their mis-
sion one may not do so to
facilitate verification of New
Moon Day, only to facilitate its
One or Two Days?
In places which the messengers
could reach in good time, each of
the holidays was observed for one
day as prescribed in the Torah. In
remote places which the
messengers could not reach in
time, the holiday was observed for
two days, since the people there
were in doubt as to which day had
been declared New Moon Day by
the court.
The difference in travel time for
the messengers in Tishri and
those in Nisan was two days: In
Tishri the messengers could not
travel on the first day (Rosh
Hashana) and on the tenth day
(Yom Kippur). There were com-
munities which the Nisan
messengers could reach in good
time, while the Tishri messengers
could not. The sages decreed that
in those communities reachable in
time in Tishri the holidays would
be observed for one day, while in
those communities which could
not be reached in good time in
Tishri (even if they could be reach-
ed in time in Nisan), the holidays
would be observed two days.
When the Synhedrin (the rab-
binic high court in Israel) ceased
to exist, declaration of the New
Moon Day came to be based on
calculation, rather than observa-
tion. In modern times, it appears
justifiable that Jews in all coun-
tries observe the holidays for one
day, as is done in Israel, rather
than two since in all cases the
calculation method for the calen-
dar is followed. The sages,
however, decreed that com-
munities which used to observe
two days continue to do so, adher-
ing to the customs of their
ancestors. Thus, the two-day holi-
day observance in the Diaspora
and one day in Israel.
Rosh Hashana is the one holy
day observed two days in Israel as
well as in Diaspora. This is also a
practice of following ancestral
custom: in the days when the New
Moon declaration depended on
observation, the majority of Jews
in Israel celebrated Rosh Hashana
two days since they were in doubt
as to which day had been declared
and messengers could not
travel out to the communities on
the first day of Tishri. Even in
Jerusalem, the seat of the high
court, it often happened that po-
ple had to observe two days, if the
witnesses who observe the new
moon did not arrive to testify to
the court on the 30th of Elul.

Rare Judaica May
Be Exhibited

In U.S. Next Year

Four years ago, Dr. Philip
Miller, librarian of Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of
Religion in New York, and I were
invited to Poland to seek out im-
portant Judaica that had survived
the Holocaust.
That pilgrimage resulted in the
exhibit, "Fragments of
Greatness," and initiated a conti-
nuing quest to uncover and
display publicly in the U.S. other
hidden pockets of Jewish ritual ob-
jects and manuscripts left behind
by our ancestors. The success of
"Fragments of Greatness" paved
the way for our current work at
the Vatican.
AFTER AN extensive period of
negotiations, the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations
received an invitation from the
Vatican to view Judaica that has
been seen previously only by a
handful of scholars. As a result of
our trip, a selection of the Vatican
collection may be exhibited in
1986 for the first time in the
United States.
Our delegation to Rome was
headed by Rabbi Alexander
Schindler. president of the
UAHC. Dr. Walter Persegati,
secretary of the Vatican museum,
and Monsignor Mejias. an official
with the Commission for Rela-
tions between Catholics and Jews,
joined us as we examined various
tombstone inscriptions dating
back to the second century of the
Common Era.
With the exception of one small
inscription, all of these were
chiseled in Greek, the dominant
language of that period. Yet many
of the tombstones were heavily
decorated with Jewish symbols
the menorah, the lulav (palm
branch), the etrog (citron), and, in
one case, a matxoh, possibly in-
dicating that the person had died
at Passover.
WITHIN THE Vatican^ ongo-
ing exhibit of Judaica, we viewed
a Spanish Torah. a Megillah, two
candelabra from the apartment of
Pope Paul VI, one of a pair of
tefillin. and a silver filigreed
Megillah case.
The next day, Father Leonard
Boyle, prefect of the Vatican
library, accompanied us as we
toured the manuscript collection.
With the help of our two
specialists. Dr. Miller and Dr.
Michael Singer, associate pro-
fessor of Jewish history at HUC-
JIR in Los Angeles, we selected a
dozen manuscripts and printed
books for closer examination. One
of the items was a 12th Century

Also on display was the first Son-

sion of the Vatican authorities.
We also saw the famous
Samaritan tri-columnar bible (in
Hebrew, Arabic and Samaritan)
with commentary written in
Palestine, and the Polyglot Bible
(1514-17) in Hebrew with transla-
tions in Arabic. Aramaic, Arme-

ment XI's sermons and translated
them into Hebrew, completely an-
notated and vocalized.

director general of the Vatican

Maimonides was born in Cor-
doba. Spain on the day before
Passover in 1135. His worldwide
reputation stems from his role as
a religious leader, physician,
philospher and scholar.
AT THE TIME Maimonides
was 13 and became Bar Mitzvah,
the city of Cordoba was overrun
by a sect of Moslems who would
tolerate no other faith in their do-
main besides Islam.
Rabin Maimon and his family,
along with noosl of Cordd
Jews, were forced to flee. For the
next ten years, they wandered
from one town to another in
southern Spain, unable to remain
long because of the continuing
conquest of the Moslem sect which
had originally forced them out of
< 'nnioba.
During this period of upheaval,
the young Maimonides continue;
to study and refine his
philosophical skills. In 1159, his
family and other Jews from
southern Spain managed to settle
in the city of Fez, then the capital
of Morocco.
Religious intolerance once again
forced them to flee after a brief
five-year stay. On their way to
Egypt. young Maimonides visited
the Holy Land. There, they made
special pilgrimages to the cities of
Hebron and Jerusalem.
Just a few months liter arriving
ir: Egypt, tragedy struck the fain
ly when Rabbi Maimon pa
away. Support of the family
now assumed by a younger
brother named David. For a while.
all went well as David hecar
successful jewel merchant who
specialized in importing precious
gems from India.
ON A business trip to India,
David was caught in a storm and
drowned when the ship wrecked
in the Indian Ocean. He was car-
rying the entire family fortune
with him at the time.
In order to support the family.
Maimonides began to practice
medicine. His reputation
developed to such a point that he
was eventually appointed to serve
as the personal physician of both
the Grand Vizier and Sultan of the
Egyptian caliphate.
Then and Now: In "Then' photo (left) are seen

In addition to the extensive
medical practice that he carried
on, Maimonides found the time to
compose very important works of
Among his most significant
scholarly achievements are the
publication of Monk Nevuchim
and Mishnak Torah. Among
students of Jewish religious
philosophy, his contributions are
considered unique.

Camp Maccabee Reflections
Of The Summer Past
The Summer of '85 is over but
the memories of Camp Maccabee
remain intact. Children and Staff
alike can look upon a great sum-
mer that featured sports, arts and
crafts, drama, swimming, Israeli
culture, shows, trips, special
events, clubs and much, much
The friendships and
cohesiveness of Camp Maccabee
helped to make this the best sum
mer ever! More than 200 children
(ages 2-12) were enrolled at Camp
Maccabee for each four week
.r Special Events included:
magicians, carnivals, camper
show. "Israeli Day", a Color War.
and talent show. Trips and
horseback riding also helped to
bolster the program.
Camp Maccabee featured a 4:1
Camper-Staff ratio in the younger
division and a 6:1 Camper-Staff in
the older division which is one of
the best Camper-Staff ratios of
any camp in Southern Florida.
Camp Maccabee was proud of
its specialists. Barry Stephens ran
the sports progarm which
featured instruction in motor
skills, as well as inter-camp com-
petition. Charles Augustus and
Kathy Updike ran the arts and
crafts programs in their respec-
tive divisions. Their projects
challenged the children and
brought out their artistic ability.
Elyssa Grynspan can be credited
for running a superb drama pro-
gram that featured a great
camper show "The Seventh Day.''
Elyssa and Ellen Cohn also taught
the campers a barrel full of
spirited songs in their respective
divisions. Our swimming program
was capably run by Ellen Ste-
ingesser who helped many of the
children overcome their fear of
water and develop their swimm-
ing skills. Adam Goldstein taught
forehands and backhands and in-
troduced many of the campers to
tennis. Steve Fellman was our
computer specialist and ran a very
successful program that never
lacked in camper's interest. The
horseback-riding program was
run at Millpond Farms in Coconut
Creek and featured excellent
supervision and instruction.
Andrea Mossovitz did a superb
job as the Unit Head of the upper
division. Her organizational and
administrative skills helped the
Camp Maccabee and its pro-
gram, policies and organization
are based on input and direction of
a camp committee, comprised of
lay-people from our community. A
special thanks to Steve Melcer
who chaired the committee, and to
Joyce Croft. Marlene Noto,
Allison-Jo-Hahn and Robert
Shafer. If you are a meml>er of the
Levis .Jewish Community < enter
and would like to serve on the
camp committee, please contact
David Sheriff, at the Center,
Your children can relive the fun
of Camp Maccabee this fall at the

: No Missionary Work
At Mt. Scopus Center
The president of the Mormon

Prof Jeffrey Holland, in a
written pledge handed to Mayor
Teddy Kollek. promised there
would be no missionary activity
in the educational center it is
constructing next to the Hebrew
University on Mt- Scopus. The
center is to be an extension of
Brigham Young University.
The construction of the
Mormon center has come under
large-scale aftack by Orthodox
curies, including the two Chief
Rabbis of Israel, who have
warned that its real purpose was
to try to convert Jews. The
charge was vigorously denied by
Mormon representatives, among
them Dr. Ellis Rasmuasen.
former Dean of Religious I
Education at Brigham Young.
following a press conference in
July by eight Christian
denominations which also oppose
the center.
The construction of the center
was approved in 1977 by the
Likud government of Premier
Menahem Begin, and by the
Jerusalem municipality irfwareq
on five acres of land, the center
will contain housing and catering
services for nearly 200 students,
as well as classrooms and an
auditorium. The purpose of the
center. Rasmussen said in July,
was to enable Mormon students
to get to know Israel.
to bring about U.S. recognition
of the PLO.
Meanwhile, the U.S. had no
assessment about the Arab
summit which only a week ago
the State Department has called
"a significant event" which it
hoped wiD provide backing for
Hussein. "In so far as the
(summit) communique enhances
the prospect for negotiation, a
peaceful resolution of differences,
k obviously has our support."
Redman said
But the Administration may
be showing its resentment of the
failure of at least one country.
Saudi .Arabia, to support the
peace process at Casablanca by
not having Murphy visit k on
his upcoming trip. Saudi .Arabia
is usually part of the itinerary
for any such trip.
The Saudis may have
prevented the summit from
achieving the hopes the U.S. had
for it when King Fahd did not
attend, just downgrading its
importance. Instead Fahd sent
his Foreign Minister. Crown
Prince Abdullah, who reportedly
prevented any condemnation of
Syria Syria which opposes the

off from a planned three percent
wage cut that had run into bitter
resistance from Histadrut, the
trade union federation.
For the moment, Histadrut
leaders are not threatening work

not certain they will passively go
along with the sharper reduction
of manpower. Histadrut
Secretary General Yisrael Kessar
and his aides have made it clear
that they will not agree to ar-
bitrary dismissals but will insist
on negotiated reductions in the
workforce in the interests of effi-
ciency and streamlining various
public projects.
THEY WILL also press for
substantially higher severance
payments to public employees
than called for by existing labor
contracts. The government has in-
dicated it is prepared to pay 150
percent of the usual severance pay
which is based on one month's
wages for each year of
Another immediate conse-
quence of the Cabinet meeting
was that all wage-earners, in-
cluding those in the public sector,
will receive a 14 percent rise in
their cost-of-living allowances this
month. Originally, the govern-
ment announced that public
employees would get only an 11
percent increase.
The c.o.l. allowance is partial
compensation for the sharp price
hikes which followed the slashing
of price support subsidies by the
government at the beginning of
July. Although it falls far short of
full compensation for inflation, it
is a result of Histadrut's agree-
ment to cuts in real wages to aid
the economic recovery plan.
SUBSTANTIAL cutbacks of
jobs in the public sector is also a
crucial element. The Cabinet
ordered the various ministries to
submit to the Treasury their plans
to dismiss three percent of civil
service employees, and also lists
of an additional three percent to
be fired.
Deputy Premier and Housing
Minister David Levy, the most
outspoken Cabinet critic of the
emergency economic program,
chided his colleagues for "folding
up as I predicted in face of
union resistance."
He noted that not a single
minister voted in favor of going
ahead with the government's
original plan to implement steep
cuts in both jobs and wages by ad-
ministrative decree, as decided
when a Cabinet majority approved
Modai's economic program on Ju-
Modai refused to concede a
government retreat. He said if the
larger scale dismissals now plann-
ed are implemented, the economic
goals will be achieved as well as, if
not better than under the orieinal

Israel's First
Free Enterprise
Town Built
A town baaed on free-
enterprise is being built by
the people who will live and
work in it, the first town of
its kind in Israel. Kfar
Vradim, Rose Garden City,
is an area included in the
comprehensive regional
development of the Western
Galilee's hilly parts.
It is being constructed along
the ridge of a mountain offering
breathtaking views and clean air.
Soon it will be a town that planned
free enterprise employment op-
portunities even before the first
foundation was laid it was
designed together with a high-
tech enterpreneurs center.
KFAB VRADIM is situated
near the Tefen Industrial Zone,
which is expected to offer the
residents of Rose Garden high-
tech industrial jobs. The Israeli
government has not invested
anything in Rose Garden City, and
is not providing any assistance:
however it did give the land,
which is being paid for now.
"The township's economic
future depends on the industrial
base at Tefen. which is geared
toward export-or iented
businesses." said Stef Wer-
theimer. the 57-year-old Israeli in-
dustrialist responsible for the
creation of Rose Garden City He
wants it to be an example that
others will follow to be known
for what it produces and sells, and
not what it spends.
More than 1.500 families are
committed to moving to Kfar
V'radim in the next five years. The
first 23 families moved into the ci-
ty last year, each in houses they
themselves built, another 120
houses are under construction.
The 15-year master plan envi-
sions a total population of 3,000
families, or about 15.000 people.

A Showcase
In Democratic
I am writing thi9 column from
the Island of Maui, in Hawaii.
James Michener, the novelist,
has called the eight islands of
Hawaii "an earthly Paradise."
He was not exaggerating.
Hawaii's lush, scenic splendor
is an endless collecton of picture
postcards. But Hawaii's human
garden of diverse ethnic and
religious groups is as impressive
as its variety of foliage. Judging
from my own first-time ex-
perience here I wonder whether
most Americans appreciate what
a showcase of successful
democratic pluralism functions
daily in this 50th State of the
Look at the composition of
Hawaii's population. While some
21 percent are pure or part-
Polynesian, the next largest
ethn>c groups are Japanese, then
Caucasians, Filipinos, Chinese,
Koreans, Samoans, and some
Puerto Ricans and blacks. Yet
with all that diversity, there is
striking unity of purpose.
Take, for example, the ob-
servance of Hiroshima Day. On
Aug. 3, all the Christian
churches, Buddist temples, and
Jewish synagogues issued a joint
pastoral letter on world peace.
To mark the 40th anniversary of
the dropping of the atomic bomb
on Hiroshima, Hawaii's temples,
churches, and synagogues held
a commemorative ceremony at
Pearl Harbor's main gate. The
diverse religious leaders united
in reminding the world that the
war which began here in Pearl
Harbor ended in Hiroshima.
Ironically, it is Hawaii, this
Paradise of the Pacific, that calls
today on all people to commit
but rather to* work for a Worra
freed from the threat of nuclear
