Israel Confesses Dimona Atom Technician 'Under Lawful Detention
JERUSALEM (JTA) The government
acknowledged Sunday that Mordechai Vanunu, a former
technician at the Dimona nuclear facility reported missing
from London Oct. 1, is being held "under lawful detention"
in Israel.
THE GOVERNMENT emphatically denied that he
was kidnapped by Israeli agents and brought to Israel
against his will. It did not say, however, how he came to
Israel or when. Vanunu disappeared shortly after he gave a
story to a British newspaper that Israel has built up an
arsenal of nuclear weapons over the last 20 years.

In Senate, House
Jewish Candidates Fared Very Well

PARIS (JTA) Prime

attempting to defuse an in-

and possible domestic crisis
touched off by his remark to
an American journalist that
Israel rather than Syria was
implicated in the attempt to
smuggle explosives aboard
an El Al airliner at Lon-
don's Heathrow Airport last
Apr. 17.
According to Arnaud de Bor-

Pope Invited to Day
Of Prayer in Jerusalem
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
- All Jewish incumbents
seeking reelection to the
Senate and House won last
Tuesday (Nov. 4). In addi-
tion, one Jewish newcomer
was elected to the House,
Benjamin Cardin (D., Md.).
This keeps the number of Jews
in the Senate at eight, evenly split
between Democrats and
Republicans. In the House the
number of Jews in the 100th Con-
gress will be 29, one less than at
present because two incumbents
gave up their House seats to make
unsuccessful bids for the Senate.
Rep. Ken Kramer (R., Col.) was
defeated by Rep. Timothy Wirth
(D., Col.) for the Senate seat being
vacated by Sen. Gary Hart. Rep.
Bobbi Fiedler (R., Cal.) lost earlier
in the year in the California
Republican primary election for
the Senate.
HOWEVER, the number of
Jews in the House could still be 30
next year depending on what hap-
pens in New York's 27th Congres-
sional District where Rosemary
Pooler, a Democrat who is active
in the Syracuse Jewish communi-
ty, was locked in a close race with
Rep. George Wortley (R., N.Y.).
The outcome was expected to de-
pend on absentee ballots.

Moynihan Says
U.S. Should Move Tel Aviv Embassy
Sen. Moynihan
By YITZHAK RABI
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Sen. Daniel Moynihan (D.,
N.Y.) has vowed to continue
efforts to move the United
States Embassy in Israel
from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
"The State of Israel has a
right under international
law to declare Jerusalem its
capital," the lawmaker told
300 guests at the presenta-
tion of the Fourth Annual
Defender of Jerusalem
Award last Thursday i.ight
at the Metropolitan Museum

"Jerusalem is far more than
just a political capital," Moynihan
declared. "It embodies and sym-
bolizes three millenia of Jewish ac-
complishments and aspirations.

would do well to follow Costa
Rica's example."

To Do Combat
Jews Eye Farmers' Plight
By SUSAN BIRNBAUM
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Representatives of farmers'
and Jewish organizations
have joined forces to combat
the plight of American
farmers and the spread of
anti-Semitism in agrarian
areas of the country.
This nationwide effort was an-
nounced at a meeting here last
month at the headquarters of the
Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations (UAHC), the umbrella
organization of Reform Judaism
in the U.S. and Canada. The
meeting, during the Sukkoth holi-
day, took place under a small suc-
cah where the representatives
noted that the setting was a
reminder of Judaism's agrarian
roots and the importance of the
harvest, celebrated during Suk-
koth, to both farmers and Jews.
REPRESENTATIVES an
nounced the beginning of a na-
tional petition drive to obtain one
million signatures calling on Con-
gress to declare an immediate
moratorium on farm foreclosures,
fair prices for farm products and
an emergency aid program for
farm families forced into
bankruptcy, foreclosure, and the
most extreme consequences of
poverty.
The petition drive was
presented by Gertrude White, na-
tional president of Women's
American ORT, and David Golds-
tein, executive director of the
Kansas City (Missouri) Jewish
Community Relations Bureau,
one of the pioneer Jewish
organizations working to help the
family farmer.
The two groups have been work-
ing jointly since last April, when
Women's American ORT
presented the Kansas City JCRB
with a $25,000 grant to initiate a
farm crisis project. The distribu-
tion of the petitions is being ear-
ned out by Women's American
ORT and UAHC.
There are now 300 farm families
going under every day, said Golds-
tein, over 100,000 farm families
per year, and he cited the accom-
panying increases in child and
spouse abuse, mental illness, "and
the hopelessness."
WHILE, speaking for Women's
American ORT and the Women's
American ORT-JCRB Farm Crisis
Project, outlined the range of pro-
jects considered for interaction
between Jewish groups and
farmers, Christian clergy, rural
media, teachers and public of-
ficials, including the consideration
of programs of direct financial aid
and the development of expanded
mental health services. "Once we
started learning about their
(farmers') problems, we felt we
had a moral responsibility toward
them."
White explained that "as the
vocational and technical training
arm of the Jewish people, ORT ap-
preciates the importance of pro-
ductive labor, both as a means of
livelihood and because it cannot be
separated from the dignity of the
individual or the wealth of society.
We feel a tremendous affinity for
these farm families."
Goldstein said his agency first
became involved in the farm crisis
through investigations into the
rabidly racist, anti-Semitic broad-
casts of radio station KTTL-FM in
Dodge City, Kansas, whose
religious sermons advocated
violence against Jews, blacks and
iaw i-nforcement officials.
HL" SAID that as members of
Kansas City Jl'KK learned
about the extremists, they
simultaneously learned about the
problemi of family farmers, and
determined that for our own
security it was necessary to
develop a program to combat anti-
Semitism and racism because of
our religious and social values,
and the tradition of Jewish com-
munity relations agencies in
aiding people in pain."
The petition, said Goldstein, "is
the centerpiece of a multifaceted
program to educate and involve
urban Jews and through Jews
other urban people in action on
the farm crisis."
Goldstein stressed the ap-
propriateness "for Jews and
farmers to work together."
Among other Jewish agencies
working to alleviate the farm
crisis, he said, were the Des
Moines, Iowa, Jewish Community
Relations Council, which provided
about $10,000 to farm families for
emergency survival assistance,
and the Minnesota Jewish Com-
munity Relations Council Anti
Defamation League, which
established a person-to-person
program bringing together Jews
and farmers for "discussion and
action."
GOLDSTEIN ALSO cited the
St. Louis American Jewish Com-
mittee, which, through former Lt.
Gov. Harriett Woods, began a
hotline offering legal advice to
farmers.
Alexander Schindler, president
of the UAHC, announcing the
UAHC participation in the peti-
tion drive, noted the place of Jews
alongside farmers. "Judaism
teaches a respect for the land and
those who till it ... We must
revere the farmer as much as the
scholar, for both do the Lord's
work. It is our solemn obligation
to make certain that they will not
be denied the fruits of their
labor."
The UAHC's Committee on
Social Action passed a resolution
last April "to undertake educa-
tional activities, to inform its con-
gregations and affiliates of the
Jewish and urban steak" in the
farm crisis.
Schindler noted that the UAHC
effort grew from the April resolu-
tion, which called the farm crisis
"the most severe since the Great
Depression" and urged legislative
action to "stem the tide of farm
foreclosures, offer reasonable and
immediate debt relief to farmers
in severe economic crisis and ad-
dress the ongoing social service
needs of farm and rural
populations."
DAVID SENTER. national
director of the American
Agriculture Movement who gave
up his farm and brought his family
to Washington, D.C. to lobby Con-
gress for legislation favorable to
the farmer, described the farm
crisis as rapidly becoming "an ir-
reversible situation" brought
about by the greed of a small
number of giant companies that
do everything from buying the
fruits of the harvest to packaging
it and distributing it.
They, and the Reagan Ad-
ministration's farm policies, he
said, have been responsible for the
disastrous proportions of the farm
crisis, reducing the number of
farmers until ownership of the
land rests in the fewest possible
hands.
In accepting the petition, Cy
Carpenter, president of the Na-
tional Farmers Union, welcomed
"the special efforts of our Jewisn
friends in undertaking to help us
correct the injustice that is being
imposed on American farmers .
Those of the Jewish faith have
written a proud and productive
history of involvement and leader-
ship, and more than their share of
caring and sharing when people
are denied or oppressed."
Teachers
Take Off
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
There were no classes last Thurs-
day (Nov. 6) for tens of thousands
of school children from the third
grade up as teachers walked off
the job for the second successive
day to protest the late payment of
their salaries.
Most teachers had in fact receiv-
ed their October checks by last
Thursday. The walkout was to ex-
press solidarity with those who
di i not. Meanwhile, the Education
and Finance Ministries continued
to argue over the disbursement of
funds from the education budget.
The Finance Ministry insists
there are sufficient funds
available to pay all teachers on
time. The Education Ministry con-
tends that it needs the monies for
other priorities and will not accept
dictation from the Treasury.

Leftwingers
Attend Meet With Palestinians
Friday, November 14, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 3
By DAVID LANDAU
And HUGH ORGEL
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Twenty-nine Israeli leftw-
ing activists departed for
Bucharest last Wednesday
morning (Nov. 5) for a two-
day symposium with
Palestinian intellectuals, in-
cluding representatives of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization. It was spon-
sored by the Rumanian
Writers Association and
ended last Thursday night.
The group fell far short of the
100 who originally signed up for
the trip. Most of the better-known
activists dropped out, apparently
having had second thoughts.
There was dissension among the
organizers and the threat of pro-
secution under a new law that pro-
hibits Israelis from having contact
with members of a terrorist
organization.
THE EAST for Peace move-
ment, leftwing Sephardic doves,
announced last Tuesday that they
were withdrawing. The Mapam
Party, which was to have sent a
delegation, bowed out last Mon-
day. But one of its leading intellec-
tuals. Latif Dori, did go. He and
writer-editor Yael Lotan are the
most prominent members of the
Religious Right Dangerous,
Sen. Metzenbaum Warns
WALTHAM, Mass -
(JTA) Sen. Howard
Metzenbaum (D., Ohio)
warned here that the
religious right and its allies
in Congress and the Ad-
ministration are waging
relentless war against in-
dividual liberties and
freedom of thought and urg-
ed activism to thwart then*
agenda for the country.
Metzenbaum, speaking at
Brandeis University's first
Founder's Day convocation last
Sunday, quoted the university's
namesake, the late U.S. Supreme
Court Justice Louis Brandeis, who
always cautioned against public
inertia in preserving liberty.
TODAY, the Senator said,
religious extremists are threaten-
ing freedom in America. Libraries
and schools across the country are
under attack. "All over the coun-
try, would-be censors are trying
to purge libraries and public
school curricula of every fact and
every idea they see to be in con-
flict with their religious views,"
Metzenbaum said.
"In the name of combatting
secular humanism, these
crusaders for conformity have
tried to use the paper shredder on
the works of Shakespeare and
Steinbeck. Homer and Mark
Twain."
In Congress, Metzenbaum said,
"we've faced sustained campaigns
to ban abortion and to permit
state-sponsored prayer in public
schools. We've seen the spectacle
of rightwing Senators circulating
to prospective nominees for the
federal bench a questionnaire
designed to measure ideological
purity. And from the very highest
quarters, we've heard voiced the
pernicious, dangerous theory that
the Bill of Rights does not apply to
the states." Metzenbaum was
referring to recent remarks by
U.S. Attorney General Edwin
Meese.
ACTIVISM "in defense of the
separation of church and state, of
the rights of women ... (and)
racial and religious minorities," is
urgently needed, he said, adding,
in a quotation from Justice
Brandeis, "the greatest menace to
freedom is an inert people."
Metzenbaum also reminded his
audience that to be a Jew in
America is never to accept the
status quo. "I'm not convinced
that we dare as Jews in America
or as Americans to glory in the
status quo," he said.

group that went to Bucharest.
The participants ran a gauntlet
of jeers and abuse from
demonstrators at Ben Gurion Air-
port who included relatives of ter-
rorist victims. In the eyes of many
Israelis the Bucharest meeting is
nothing more than a PLO pro-
paganda event.
The PLO announced it was sen-
ding a member of its Central Com-
mittee, Mohammed Milhem, a
former West Bank Mayor. But
rumors that PLO chief Yasir
Arafat and other top leaders
would attrend turned out to be
false.
Earlier Premeir Yitzhak Shamir
urged the Rumanian government
to withdraw its support from the
meeting because it would involve
Israeli citizens in an illegal act.
Foreign Minister Shimon Peres
characterized the event as "a
theater of the absurd."
MINISTER-Without-Portfolio
Ezer Weizman, who works out of
the Foreign Ministry, said last
Tuesday (Nov. 4) that he thought
the Israeli group should stay
home, not because meetings with
the PLO are banned but because
such unofficial contacts do
nothing to advance the peace pro-
cess. According to Weizman, the
issues under discussion "are
political matters of the first
degree" which cannot be settleed
by unauthorized persons.
Meanwhile, the Israeli Commit-
tee of War Resisters International
and the International Movement
of Conscientious Objectors has ap-
pealed to Peres to allow one of
their people, Yeshayahu Toma-
Shik, to go to Amman this week
for an international conference on
non-violence. It was organized by
the Arab Thought Forum under
the patronage of Crown Prince
Hassan, brother of King Hussein.

Tribunal Rejects Arab's Appeal
JERUSALEM (JTA) A

unanimously rejected an appeal
against deportation by Akram
Haniye, editor of the East
Jerusalem Arabic daily A-Shaab.
His attorney, Felicia Langer, an-
nounced she would take the case
to the Supreme Court.
Haniye was arrested and
ordered deported on charges that
he was a principal coordinator of
Palestine Liberation Organization
political activities in the ad-
ministered territories. The
authorities conceded, however,
that he was not involved in ter-
rorist activities.
The deportation order will not
be implemented pending a deci-
sion by the Supreme Court
The order to expel Haniye to

Making Deals
With Terrorism
It would be nice to blame it exclusively on
the French for refusing to promise that
there can be no deals with terrorists. For a
long time, the French have been saying that
they make no deals with Arab terrorist
groups or with countries bankrolling them,
and so there would be no need to sign a com-
mitment proposed by The Twelve the
European Economic Community nations
to that effect in Luxembourg last month.
But for just as long a time, no matter what
they say, the French have quietly done just
that made deals whenever and wherever
they thought it would help keep the peace
from terrorist activity in their own country.
In the Lerner-Lowe classic "My Fair Lady,"
one of the lyrics declares that the French
don't actually care what you do so long as
you pronounce it correctly.
So much for the French, including Prime
Minister Jacques Chirac, who this week
passed along the story allegedly told him by
West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl and
Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher at
that meeting of the EEC Council of
Ministers in Luxembourg to the effect that
Syria was not to blame for the bombing at-
tempt of an El Al jet in London on Apr. 17.
No, according to Chirac's retold tale, it
was the Israelis. Presumably, the Prime
Minister pronounced his words very
beautifully indeed as he reported what the
Germans now insist is a lie.
The Reagan Involvement
But what about the Greeks, who want
nothing whatever to do with an organized
war on terrorism?
Moreover, what about Ronald Reagan,
President of the United States, who now, it
is clear, has been engaging in a covert opera-
tion these last two years to trade American
arms to Iran for terrorist hostages in
Lebanon, as a three-part series ending in
The Jewish Floridian last week appears now
to have so accurately reported?
This is the same President Reagan who
has time and again made public utterrances
that he would never deal with terrorist
hostage-takers. This is the same President
Reagan who has been twisting the arms of
our so-called European allies, all of whom
except Great Britain, have refused to enter
enthusiastically into a war on terrorism
except to make nice speeches about such a
war.
So we are back again to pretty words
beautifully pronounced, the French ideal of
the rightness of things. Only it is not just the
French who are hypocrites. So are the other
European nations for whom there are no
enemies, only customers. So is President
Reagan who, it appeared, just about con-
vinced the Europeans last week to join him
and the British in isolating Syria over the
Apr. 17 attempted bombing of the Israeli jet
at Heathrow.
That is, until the story about the U.S.
arms deal with Iran finally emerged.
Deception in Government
Now that the President's own duplicity is
a national scandal, what is there left to ex-
pect in the war on terrorism?
We can say of the French that they have
learned nothing from history, their own
especially. We can say that they did not take

German Nazism seriously in the 1930's,
allowing Nazi and Fascist groups to flourish
freely in their country. We can say that they
fought like paper tigers against the Ger-
mans in World War II. We can say of France
that, now that it has been holding Klaus Bar-
bie, the notorious "butcher of Lyon," in jail
for the past few years, it drags its feet in
trying him.
But the French can take care of their own
wickedness. They have always been able to
do that. But in the wake of our own national
scandal, there is so much more to be said
about stealth, secrecy, deception and
outright lies in the halls of our own
government.
Serious Talk Needed
For us, there is something sad in observ-
ing Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D., N.Y.)
telling a Jewish gathering m New York the
other night that he will continue his efforts
to get the United States Embassy in Israel
to move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
It takes two to tango Sen. Moynihan to
make the promise and the Jewish gathering,
in this instance guests of the Fourth Annual
Defender of Jerusalem Award ceremony, to
listen to him. Both are to blame for such a
wasteful presentation.
The fact is that such a move would be ab-
solutely unrealistic at this time or even in
the foreseeable future. Those who know
something about the Realpolitik of the area
also understand that the United States
operates a consular office in Jerusalem
which actually serves as an Arab affairs
center with the specific purpose of soft-
soaping Arab Israelis and even Jordanians
in the West Bank territories. This is not
what a U.S. consular office is supposed to be
doing. The purpose of a consular office is as
a regional adjunct to its embassy in the
capital of the host nation, with its specific
services to Americans not to citizens of
Israel.
Insiders have long witnessed a tug of war
between the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv and
the consular office in Jerusalem, which has
powers beyond just about any other or-
dinary consular office operated by any other
nation anywhere else in the world. Behind
the scenes stories abound that embassy per-
sonnel in Tel Aviv regard consular personnel
in Jerusalem as "enemies" and that the con-
flicting political, and therefore ideological,
purposes of these two offices make in-
telligent cooperation between them essen-
tially impossible.
This state of affairs symbolizes the ab-
solutely schizophrenic attitude that our
State Department has toward the status of
Jerusalem, let alone Israel, its Arab citizens,
and Arab nations nearby. In the face of such
a situation, can anyone honestly anticipate a
U.S. move of its embassy to Jerusalem soon?
It is noble of Sen. Moynihan that he main-
tains this ultimate purpose as an item on his
personal agenda. But it is of little conse-
quence. Worse, the Jewish organization
which he addressed should also have
understood this. To lend a serious ear to
such talk is demeaning not only of the ideal
that Sen. Moynihan says he espouses. It is
also demeaning to the audience.
Remembering Suez
How the '56 War Isolated Britain
Friday, November 14,1986
Volume 8
12HESHVAN5747
Number 37
By MAURICE SAMUELSON
LONDON On
the 30th anniversary of the
Suez affair, British public
opinion suddenly appears to
be taking a less critical view
of the events culminating in
one of this country's
greatest ever humiliations
and which catapulted the
glamorous and talented
Prime Minister Anthony
Eden from power.
This may partly reflect the cur-
rent British disenchantment with
present-day Arab nationalism. It
is also due to a new and highly ac-
claimed biography of Eden, which
views with sympathy his decision
to reply with force to Egyptian
President Gamal Abdel Nasser's
unilateral nationalization of the
Suez Canal.
THIRTY YEARS ago, Britain
and France, in secret collusion
with Israel, invaded Egypt to
regain control of the Suez Canal,
through which two-thirds of Bri-
tain's vital oil supplies were
transported. In the face of world-
wide uproar, from the United
States, Soviet Union and much of
the United Nations, the invaders
had to retreat, presenting Nasser
with a spectacular political
victory.
Recently, Britain was again at
odds with the leading Arab na-
tionalist state not Egypt but
Syria, whose involvement in the
El Al aircraft bomb plot last April
caused Britain to break off
diplomatic relations with
Damascus.
'Hell, Selwyn. why did
you stop? Why didn't
you go through with it
and get Nasser down?'
John Foster Dulles.
James comments: 'It
would have been better
for everyone if that had
happened
As in 1956, Britain finds itself
uncomfortably isolaled. This time,
it is the Israelis and the
Americans who are siding with
Britain. But France, Britain's
1956 comrade-in-arms, has turned
a deaf ear to British pleas for
solidarity; so did the other Euro-
pean Economic Community
(EEC) partners, not to mention
the Soviet Union which stridently
supported the extreme Syrian
position.
IT IS THE Syrians themselves
who have drawn a parallel bet-
ween the present British-Syrian
rift and the events of 1956. Syrian
officials are claiming that Britain
had conspired against Damascus
with the U.S. and Israel just as in
1956 they had plotted against
Nasser with France and Israel.
The British reappraisal of Eden
emerges in the official biography
of him by historian and fellow
Conservative Party politician
Robert Rhodes James, published
here last month.
In it, the author largely vin-
dicates Eden's motives for trying
to topple Nasser and places much
of the blame for his failure on the
slowness of Britain's military
operations, on the ambiguity of
U.S. Secretary of State John
Foster Dulles, and the doubters in
the British Cabinet.
He also excuses Eden's con-
troversial habit of equating
Nasser with Hitler or Mussolini,
pointing out that it was the then
Labor opposition leader Hugh
Gaitakell who had first made this
emotive comparison. At the same
time, James emphasizes the
danger which the revolutionary
Egyptian leader increasingly pos-
ed, with Soviet support, to British
and Western interests.
IN A SEPARATE article in the
London Times recently, James
calls Eden a frustrated
peacemaker who was driven to
force as a last resort. He says
Eden was "absolutely right" in
his assessment of Nasser, whom
he describes as an "unpleasant
and dangerous man."
He concludes, however, that
Eden "not only outlived Nasser
but saw his old opponent's
megalomaniac dreams and
stratagems collapse, his only
memorial being the divided and
embittered Middle East, and an
Egypt that has moved from fan-
tasy into cold reality."
When Dulles was almost on his
death bed, the writer recalls, he
aaid to Selwyn Lloyd, Eden's 1956
Foreign Secretary: "Hell, Selwyn,
why did you stop? Why didn't you
go through with it and get Nasser
down?"
James comments: "It would
have been better for everyone if
that had happened "

Off to Helsinki
Invitation to Abram, Hoenlein
Friday, November 14, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South County Page 5
NEW YORK Morris B.
Abram, chairman of the Con-
ference of Presidents of Major
American Jewish Organizations,
and Malcolm Hoenlein, executive
director, have accepted invita-
tions from the U.S. State Depart-
ment to serve as public members
of the U.S. delegation to the
follow-up conference on the
Helsinki accords that began in
Vienna last week. They were ask-
ed to serve by Warren Zimmer-
man, chief of the U.S. delegation
to the meeting.
The two Jewish leaders are
among 15 prominent Americans
taking part in the Vienna con-
ference; known formally as the
Follow-Up Meeting of the Con-
ference on Security and Coopera-
tion in Europe (CSCE).
AT THE MEETING, expected
to run for six weeks, the 35 par-
ticipating states will review the
status of all issues covered by the
1975 Helsinki Final Act and the
1983 Madrid Concluding
Document.
In inviting Abram and Hoenlein
to participate in the Vienna
meeting, Zimmerman wrote:
"Public members provide
several important services to our
CSCE delegations. They help call
public attention to the CSCE pro-
cess and to U.S. objectives within
it. Foremost among these at Vien-
American Friends of
Hebrew U. Annual
Conference Dec. 16
The Greater Boca Raton-Delray
Beach Chapter of the American
Friends of the Hebrew University
is pleased to announce the Annual
Hebrew University Academic
Conference will be held at Temple
Beth El, 333 S.W. 4th Ave., Boca
Raton, Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 7:30
p.m.
This year's conference presents
two outstanding Hebrew Univer-
sity lecturers: Professor Eliezer
D. Jaffe and Associate Professor
Shlomo Aronson. Professor Jaffe
was trained in the United States,
with degrees in sociology,
psychology, criminology, and
holds a Doctorate in social work.
Since emigrating to Israel in 1960,
he has taught at the Hebrew
University School of Social Work,
was a consultant to the Israel
Ministry of Social Welfare and has
served on several ministerial
committees.
Dr. Jaffe's research has focused
primarily on welfare services to
children and their families. He
publishes frequently in profes-
sional journals, and in the Israel
and American Jewish press. In
1976, Professor Jaffe received the
Revel Memorial Award. His topic
will be "Ethnic Divisions in Israel:
Facts and Forecast."
Associate Professor Shlomo
Aronson was born in Tel Aviv,
studied at the Hebrew University,
and continued his education at the
Free University, Berlin, where he
received his PhD, Magna Cum
Laude. In 1969 he was appointed
Lecturer in the Department of
Political Science at the university
and in 1973, Dr. Aronson became
Director of European Studies,
while serving as a war correspon-
dent during the Yom Kippur War.
In 1976, he was guest Scholar at
the Brookings Institution in
Washington, D.C., and the follow-
ing year he was a visiting Pro-
fessor at UCLA. Currently, Pro-
fessor Aronson is a Fellow at the
Lehrman Institute and a regular
columnist for the Israel Press and
Media BBC, London, and PBS,
Washington, D.C. His topic will be
"Limited Wars in the Nuclear
Age: The Case of the Middle East
Conflict"
This program is free and open to
the public.
na is improved implementation by
the participating states notably
the Soviet Union and its East
European allies of their
Helsinki and Madrid
commitments.
"Public members are a source of
valuable expertise and experience
concerning CSCE compliance
failures that should be brought to
light and effective ways of doing
so. In addition, public members
serve as a unique means of two-
way communication between the
delegation and concerned consti-
tuencies at home."
Each public member of the U.S.
delegation is asked to spend at
least two weeks in Vienna. Abram
and Hoenlein will attend the
meetings separately.
IN A STATEMENT on the
Vienna meeting, Zimmerman
declared:
"Although the CSCE balance
sheet has shown mixed results to
date, the basic fact of the CSCE
process has been the failure of the
Soviet Union and, to varying
degrees, its East European allies
to comply with their Helsinki com-
mitments. As Secretary Shultz
stated in 1985: 'Ten years after
the signing of the Final Act, no
one can deny the gap between
hope and performance. Despite
the real value of the Final Act as a
standard of conduct, the most im-
portant promises of a decade ago
have not been kept.'
"Egregious new compliance
failures occur and old ones con-
tinue. The Soviet Union still oc-
cupies Afghanistan and imprisons
and otherwise penalizes its own
citizens for exercising the rights
and freedoms promised in the
Final Act. Despite the recent
resolution of several cases, many
Soviet citizens married to
Americans are cruelly separated
from their spouses by official
denial of exit permission.
"The number of Soviet Jews
allowed to emigrate mainly for
family reunification, has fallen
drastically from the levels permit-
ted in the late 1970s. The same is
true for Soviet citizens of German
and Armenian nationality.
Recently, U.S. reporter Nicholas
Daniloff was taken hostage on
fabricated charges of espionage
in flagrant violation of CSCE
pledges concerning the treatment
of journalists ...
"FOR THE U.S. and its NATO
allies at Vienna, the primary aim
is to improve significantly
Eastern compliance with all the
principles and provisions of the
Helsinki and Madrid documents.
At the outset, the West will
review thoroughly Eastern per-
formance, raising specific pro-
blems in conference sessions and
Morris Abram
bilateral meetings.
"Another important aim is .
to ensure human rights are given
at least equal weight with other
CSCE elements ... The suc-
cessful outcome of the Stockholm
security talks highlights the need
to address human problems
Malcolm Hoenlein
human rights, basic freedoms, and
humanitarian cooperation. Tangi-
ble steps in these fields are
necessary if the CSCE process is
to advance. It is important that
new steps forward be based solid-
ly on significant improvement in
compliance with existing
commitments."
800 U.S. Soldiers in Israel
To Join UN Sinai Force
TEL AVIV (JTA) U.S.
military aircraft will land 800
American soldiers in Israel later
this month to bring the American
contingent of the United Nations
peace observer force in Sinai up to
full strength.
Military transports are being us-
ed for the first time because of the
crash of a chartered civilian plane
over Newfoundland last
December which killed 248
Marines on their way home from
duty in Sinai.
Did you say fruit?
APPLE and ORANGE and BUCKWHEAT
Yes, botanically all three are classified as fruit, and each is highly
nutritious in its own way.
Buckwheat is the best source of high biological protein in the entire plant
kingdom very close to the protein level of whole milk solids. Kasha,
the 100% pure roasted buckwheat kernel, is rich in potassium,
phosphorous, fiber and vitamin B, and NO CHOLESTEROL. Thus, it is
an economical food high in balanced protein and it's delicious, too!

Braman To Lead Florida Campaign
For Holocaust Museum In Washington
Norman Braman, Florida
business leader and owner of the
Philadelphia Eagles football team,
has been appointed Chairman of
the Florida Steering Committee
of the national campaign to build
the United States Holocaust
Memorial Museum in Washington,
D.C., it was announced by Na-
tional Campaign Chairman Miles
Lerman. "I'm delighted we have a
person of the caliber and commit-
ment of Norman Braman to spark
our efforts in Florida, which will
be a key state for the Museum
Campaign," Lerman said.
The Museum, to be located on
Federal land facing the
Washington Monument on the Na-
tional Mall, is the responsibility of
the U.S. Holocaust Memorial
Council, whose Chairman is the
1986 Nobel Peace Prize recipient,
Elie Wiesel. Along with Wiesel
and Lerman, Braman is one of 55
Council members appointed by
the President.
The 275,000-square-foot edifice
will be a "living" memorial to the
six million Jewish victims of the
Holocaust and the millions of
others who perished at the hands
of the Nazis during World War II.
Through exhibits, educational and
cultural programs, it will tell the
story of humankind's darkest
hour, and document the era for
visitors, students and scholars
with a research library and an in-
ternational archives.
According to the Federal law
that created the Council, the
Museum must be constructed en-
tirely with private, tax-deductible
gifts. In endorsing the Campaign
of which he serves as Honorary
Chairman, President Reagan has
stated, "We are moving forward
to build a 'living' museum financ-
ed by those who grasp the impor-
tance of understanding and of
remembering." So far, the Cam-
paign has raised $35 million
across the country from founda-
tions, corporations and individual
Americans of all religions, races
and cultural backgrounds.
You
Braman has long been a civic
leader and supporter of such
charitable and educational causes
as the University of Miami and its
medical school, Mount Sinai
Medical Center, the United
Jewish Appeal, and Tel Aviv
University. A prominent
automobile dealer in Miami, Tam-
pa, West Palm Beach and Denver,
Colo., he is a graduate of Temple
University. "I accept the
challenge with great enthusiasm,"
Braman declared. "I know the
generosity and humanity of the
people of Florida, and I expect
them to respond warmly in sup-
port of this vital cause."
Jews Urged To Emigrate
JOHANNESBURG (JTA) -
The chairman of the South
African Zionist Federation has
urged his nation's Jews to more
seriously consider immigration to
Israel, as their relatively comfor-
table South African lifestyle could
end.
The Jewish Echo of Glasgow,
Scotland, reports that M.W.
"Mockie" Friedman warned
delegates to the recent federation
already are
a Zionist...
conference here of "a dark night
for Jews, with danger emanating
from the extreme right and ex-
treme left."
In advocating the federation to
establish a task force on aliyah, he
imparted further advice: If Israel
imposes punitive measures on the
government of South Africa
regarding apartheid, it would
result in "additional serious pro-
blems for South African Jewry."
If you believe in the unity of the Jewish people and
the central it y of Israel in Jewish life...
If you stand for strengthening the democratic State
of Israel...
If you support the ingathering of the Jewish people
to its historic home, Eretz Yisrael...
If you advocate the preservation of the Jewish
people and their identity through education and
cultural programming...
If you care about the protection of Jewish rights,
and all minority rights, everywhere...
If you believe in these principles of the Zionist
Movement, then you already believe as all Zionists
believe.
But are you acting on your beliefs?
Zionism today.
It all started with a dream...
Zionism emerged from the deep yearning of a
people to return to their Biblical homeland. A people,
dispersed by time and terror, seeking a new national
movement incorporating aspirations so often
challenged by pogroms and torturous times.
It was these aspirations for freedom that were so
similar to those that gave birth to America. And their
fulfillment was the creation of the State of Israel, in
a way that resonates strongly in the hearts of all
Americans. And in the million who have joined
the Zionist Movement.
Is the Zionist Movement
the way?
Without an organized movement in
which Jews are publicly identified, there
can be no democratic action. Not for
peace, nor for the many monumental
accomplishments of recent years.
The resettlement in Israel of
1,800,000 immigrants from over
100 countries. The vast educa-
tional program for many
hundreds of thousands of
youngsters in Israel and in
the United States. The ini-
tiation of the struggle to
rescue Soviet Jewry,
Ethiopian Jewry, and
Jews in peril through-
out the globe.
You can continue this endeavor as part of a mean-
ingful American Jewish community by lending voice
to the Zionist Movement. By standing up and being
counted. This is the American way. the way for the
1,000,000 Americans who presently declare with
pride, "I am a Zionist."
How can I be effective?
1. Affiliate. Join any of the 16 American Zionist
organizations. Just mail the coupon for membership
information. Today.
2. Participate. Come to Philadelphia, where
American democracy began! From January 4th to
7th, 1987, Philadelphia will be home to the American
Zionist Assembly. The climax of our membership
campaign. Here you can be inspired by world-
renowned speakers, learn from celebrated educa-
tors, enjoy cultural and spiritual regeneration through
a striking series of programs. And
. most significantly, share in the
J decisions affecting Zionists the
world over. Ask for enrollment
and reservation details.
3. Vote. As a Zionist organization member, you will
be asked, in May 1987, to help elect delegates to the
31st World Zionist Congress in late 1987. Your
answer has never meant more. The World Zionist
Congressthe parliament of the Jewish people
is the only democratic legislative body for world
Jewry; your vote is their instrument. Raise your
hand high!

Of Mean-Spirited Religious Pluralism Failures
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
An ugly and mean-spirited
incident at a Reform con-
gregation in the Baka
suburb of Jerusalem on Sim-
chat Torah eve has sensitiz-
ed the public to the issue of
religious pluralism in Israel
as rarely ever before and
has given the Reform move-
ment here a sympathetic
hearing to press its case for
equal treatment.
Most Israelis were shocked
when Orthodox zealots in Baka,
led by the local chief rabbi, Eliahn
Abergil, disrupted the Reform
congregation's services at the
neighborhood community center
and attempted to forcibly wrest
Torahs from the congregants
while hurling curses at them.
MOST ISRAELIS were further
repelled by the subsequent public
comments of the Sephardic Chief
Rabbi, Mordechai Eliahu, and
others of the Orthodox religious
establishment, justifying the in-
cursion. Abergil was arrested and
faced charges of violating the
criminal code.
But later he expressed regret
for his actions and gave a written
promise never again to interfere
with Reform worship. Rabbi Levi
Weiman-Kelman of the Reform
Kol Haneshama congregation
withdrew the complaint and the
two rabbis embraced outside the
police station.
Certainly no Madison Avenue
PR firm could have conjured such
favorable publicity for the Reform
movement only 5,000 strong in
a country of four million
especially as it is about to dedicate
its massive new center in
Jerusalem.
While editorial writers and pun-
dits welcomed the amicable
resolution of the Baka incident,
they point out correctly that the
broader questions it raised remain
unanswered. Is there in fact
freedom of worship for Jews in
the Jewish State? In the sense
that they are free to pray to God
in whatever way they choose, the
answer is doubtlessly yes.
BUT INSOFAR as the question
pertains to State recognition of
non-Orthodox Judaism, the
answer, most certainly, is no.
Marriages, divorces and conver-
sions, the three principal elements
for personal status, reside ex-
clusively in the jurisdiction of the
Chief Rabbinate which is entirely
Orthodox. Some departures are
permitted, but they are all in the
direction of ultra-Orthodoxy, not
Minister
Invites Pope
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Justice Minister Avraham Sharir
met here last Thursday (Nov. 6)
with Cardinal Ernesto Korfio
Omada, spiritual leader of 80
million Mexican Catholics, who is
visiting Israel. He used the occa-
sion to extend a formal invitation
Jo Pope John Paul II to visit
Israel. Omada will have an au-
dience with the Pope in Rome
after leaving Israel, to be followed
by a meeting with King Juan
Carlos of Spain in Madrid.
Omada'8 meeting with Sharir,
who also heads the Tourism
Ministry, was seen here as part of
an overall effort to improve the at-
mosphere between Israel and the
Vatican. The Cardinal called on
Catholics to visit Israel and
especially Jerusalem.
toward Reform or Conservative
Judaism.
With two kibbutzim in Israel
and a third planned, the Reform
movement has had an impact on
certain areas of Israeli life. By the
same token, it has failed so far to
attract any mass following and is
therefore in no way comparable in
terms of popular strength to the
Reform movement in the United
States.
Nevertheless, Reform leaders
here and in America are not
discouraged. They are en-
thusiastically involved in transfor-
ming what was once a bastion of
anti-Zionism in the U.S. into a
thoroughly pro-Zionist movement.
REFORM rabbinical students
in the U.S. are required to take
one year of courses at the Hebrew
Union College (HUC) Center in
Jerusalem. That is only one reflec-
tion of the trend toward iden-
tification with Israel by the
Reform movement. The new HUC
Center building, a magnificent
$30 million edifice on King David
Street in the heart of Jerusalem,
is an extension of the desire to
make the HUC and Israel in-
separably linked.
All of the key lay and clergy
leaders of Reform Jewry attended
the dedication ceremonies. But
this is not to say that a surge
toward Reform Judaism in Israel
is imminent.
The reasons for the Reform
r ap-
efully
researched or clearly understood.
But plainly there is resistance
which goes far beyond the in-
fluence of the Orthodox establish-
ment. Reform leaders, American
and Israeli, will be pondering this
in the weeks ahead.

Jewish Candidates Fared Very Well
Continued from Page 1
Jewish woman eleced to the
House. A Democract, she served
three terms in the House,
representing a Manhattan
district. But last Tuesday, runn-
ing in Westchester, Abzug failed
to unseat Rep. Joseph DioGuardi,
a Republican, elected to his se-
cond term.
If Pooler was elected, the House
would again have three Jewish
women. The two incumbents are
Reps. Barbara Boxer and Sala
Burton (both D.. Cal.).
IN THE Senate races. Missouri
Lieutenant Gov. Harriett Woods,
a Democrat, lost in her second at-
tempt to become the first Jewish
woman elected to the Senate. She
was defeated by former Gov.
Christopher Bond, a Republican,
for the seat being vacated by Sen.
Thomas Eagleton (D.. Mo.).
Two other Jews running for the
Senate also lost. Kramer and
Mark Green, a Democrat, who
failed to upset Sen. Alfonse
D'Amato (R., N.Y.). The two
Jewish Senators reelected were
Sens. Arlen Specter (R.. Pa.) and
Warren Rudman (R., Vt.).
Meanwhile, with the House re-
maining under Democratic control
and the Democrats taking over
the Senate by a 55-45 margin, lit-
tle change is expected in the
strong support for Israel and
Soviet Jewry in Congress.
However, church-state and other
social issues sought by the Reagan
Administration and viewed as
dangerous by the Jewish com-
munity would appear to have little
chance of passage during the next
two years.
Leading supporters of Israel,
ranging from governor liberal
Democrats to conservative
Republicans, were reelected to the
Senate. Among these are: Sens.
Alan Cranston (D., Cal.),
Christopher Dodd (D., Conn.),
Daniel Inouye (D., Hawaii),
D'Amato, Bob Packwood (R.,
Ore.) and Robert Kasten (R.,
Wis.).
While the number of Jews in the
Senate are evenly divided among
Democrats and Republicans, in
the House the Jewish contingent
is overwhelmingly Democrat,
25-4.
U.S. Should Move Embassy
To Jerusalem, Moynihan Says
Continued from Page 1
Jerusalem despite pressure from
other countries and international
bodies. Luis Alberto Monge, one
of the awardees, was President at
the time. The two other awardees
were Per Ahlmark, former Depu-
ty Prime Minister of Sweden, and
Rabbi Eliahu Essas, for 13 years a
dissident in the Soviet Union and
now living in Israel.
Referring to the three winners,
Moynihan noted that Ahlmark
"has done so much to secure sup-
port for Israel and Jerusalem in
Scandinavia". Essas "refused to
forget the message of Jerusalem
in the Soviet Gulag'', and Alberto
Monge "has shown the world that
foreign Embassies can and should
be in Jerusalem."
Nobel Prize laureate Elie Wiesel
presented the award to Ahlmark,
citing him for his consistent ad-
vocacy of Israel's rights and his
opposition to every manifestation
of anti-Semitism in his native
Sweden and throughout Scan-
dinavia. "Statesman, poet,
humanist: Per Ahlmark has
relentlessly defended the honor of
Israel with vigor, talent and pas-
sion. He is singularly deserving of
the Jewish people's gratitude,"
Wiesel said.
AHLMARK, who is also Deputy
President of the Swedish-Israeli
Friendship League since 1970,
said in response that Israel "has
given and still does so, inspiration
to free men and women around
the world." "If you support
Israel, you also support the idea of
freedom everywhere," he added,
and "what we see on the interna-
tional scene now, not least in the
UN, are systematic attempts to
make the Jewish State illegal, ef-
forts to isolate Israel in a way that
in fact prepares world opinion for
its future destruction.
"The anti-Semites," he con-
tinued, "start with the Jews, but
never stop with the Jews. Anti-
Semitism is always a call for the
destruction of democratic values
and institutions. To tolerate anti-
Semitism is to invite disaster. In
the end, we will all be victims."
The $100,000 award is spon-
sored by the Jabotinsky Founda-

dation is Eryk Spektor. The prize
is given to persons who undertake
extraordinary action "in defense
of the rights of the Jewish peo-
ple," Spektor said.

IN OTHER election results, one

the nation's only incumbent
Jewish governor was still in doubt
whether she had won reelection.
Both are Democrats.
Neil Goldschmidt, former
Mayor of Portland and Secretary
of Transportation in the Carter
Administration, was elected
Governor of Oregon. But
Madeleine Kunin, seeking her se-
cond term as Governor of Ver-
mont, received the largest
number of votes but apparently
failed to win the 50 percent ma-
jority required by the Vernont
State Constitution. This means
the decision will be left to the
Republican-controlled
Legislature.

Syracuse, N.Y. Democrat
Concedes Defeat in House
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
Rosemary Pooler, a Democrat ac-
tive in the Syracuse Jewish com-
munity, has conceded defeat in
her effort to win election to the
House from New York's 27th
District Nov. 4. She lost to the in-
cumbent, Rep. George Wortley, a
Republican.
According to the Syracuse
Herald-Journal, Wortley outspent
Pooler by $557,697 to $385,407 in
what was a heated campaign.
Pooler's loss leaves the number
of Jews elected to the House at 29,
one less than in the current 99th
Congress, even though one new
Jewish member was elected, Ben-
jamin Cardin (D., Md.).
However, two Jewish in-
cumbents, Reps. Ken Kramer and
Bobbi Fiedler, both California
Republicans, left their seats in un-
successful bids for the Senate.
The number of Jewish Senators
remains at eight with the reelec-
tion of Sens. Arlen Specter (R.,
Pa.) and Warren Rudman (R.,
N.H.).
Meanwhile, Vermont Governor
Madeleine Kunin, a Democrat, is
expected to be elected to a second
term by the State Legislature.
She won a plurality in the Nov. 4
elections but failed to receive 50
percent of the vote, which means
under Vermont law that the
Legislature decides the issue.
A second Jew elected a gover-
nor last Tuesday is NeilNel
Goldschmidt. A former Mayor of
Portland and Secretary of
Transportation in the Carter Ad-
ministration, he was elected
Oregon's chief executive.
Stamp collectors in Holland can

peared in 1960, published by E.P.
Dutton. The author is Herman
Herat, Jr., of the Estates Section.
The book has gone through six
editions, and at more than 50,000
copies sold, it is one of the best
selling philatelic books of all time.
An edition in Dutch has just ap-
peared, published by New World
Books of Utrecht, with the
translation made by a collector, A.
Van Werk, also of Utrecht.
In the 1970s, an edition in
English appeared in India, and is
still used to encourage the
teaching of English in the schools
there. In November, 1973, Mr.
and Mrs. Herat were invited to In-
dia by the late prime minister,
Mrs. Indira Gandhi, to start stamp
clubs in the elementary schools in
New Delhi and Bombay. They
were entertained at the Gover-

Violations on Agenda
Shultz Vowed To Air Them
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON (JTA)
Secretary of State
George Shultz said that he
would "emphasize" the
Soviet Union s violations of
human rights in Vienna at
the 35-nation conference to
review the implementation
of the 1975 Helsinki
Accords.
"Arms control agreements with
a regime that violates human
rights cannot be truly successful
in guaranteeing international
security," he said in a speech to
the Los Angeles World Affairs
Council. The text of the speech,
which concentrated on the human
rights issue, was made available
at the State Department.
"Governments which abuse the
rights of their own people cannot
be expected to act in a more
civilized manner abroad," Shultz
said. "For this reason we em-
phasize human rights issues in all
our official dealings with the
Soviet Union."
SHULTZ SAID the United
States would raise the Soviet
Jewry and other human rights
issues at Vienna "not to score pro-
paganda points," but to give an
actual picture of the situation in
the USSR. "For Soviet Jewry the
situation is bleak and
deteriorating," the Secretary
noted. "Jewish emigration in 1986
has fallen to the lowest level in 20
years, down 98 percent from the
all-time high of 1979."
While the Soviets claim that
those Jews who want to emigrate
have left, "we know the names of
11,201 who have applied for and
been denied permission to
emigrate," Shultz said. "We can
also confirm that at least 380,000
additional Soviet Jews would like
to leave the Soviet Union."
Shultz said this was a "perfectly
legitimate" issue to raise with the
Soviets. "The Soviet Union has
signed politically binding interna-
tional instruments which require
respect for basic human rights, in-
cluding the right to leave one's
country," he said. "Commitments
assumed under these documents
are as a binding as any other in-
ternational commitments." Shultz
noted that "Soviet leaders have
shown increasing awareness of
the public relations price they pay
as a result of their conduct in the
field of human rights" through
"some high profile actions."
WHILE "these gestures are
welcome," Shultz said, "they are
no substitute for genuine and sus-
tained progress in the human
rights areas." Shultz stressed that
all the democratic countries must
continue to exert pressure on the
Soviet Union. "The Soviet
authorities will have no incentive
to change if they believe we do not
care," he said.
He particularly noted that
before President Reagan met
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
in Reykjavik, Iceland, there was
"one of the most intensive series
of domestic human rights con-
sultations in American history.
Non-governmental organizations
and members of Congress directly
participated in the formulation of
our negotiating position."
This meant when Reagan raised
Peres, in U.S., Seeks Capital
For Investment in Negev
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Shimon Peres, travelling to the
United States Monday for the
first time as Israel's Foreign
Minister, said Sunday night that
he would concentrate his efforts
on attracting American invest-
ment capital for the Negev.
At Peres' initiative, the Negev
2000 Association unveiled a plan
for a new deep-water port at Eilat
to replace the present limited
facilities and clear valuable stret-
ches of coastline for tourist beach
developments.
Binyamin Yassour, head of the
Association, told the Jerusalem
Post that overseas funding for
Negev projects would be for-
thcoming if the government en-
dorsed the projects. He said the
new port would help boost Israel's
trade with Australasia and
southeast Asia. Ships from those
regions calling at Eilat have a
shorter trip and avoid the Suez
Canal tolls.
While in the U.S. Peres was to
address the General Assembly of
the Council of Jewish Federations
in Chicago Thursday night and
meet with Jewish leaders from all
parts of the country. He will also
meet with Richard Murphy, Assis-
tant Secretary of State for Near
Eastern and South Asian Affairs.
Minister-Without-Portfolio
Moshe Arens, a close political
associate of Premier Yitzhak
Shamir, will also go to the U.S.
this week. Government sources in-
dicated he would have talks in
Washington and arrange for
Shamir's first visit to the U.S. as
Premier, probably early next
year.
the issue with Gorbachev, "he was
speaking not only for himself and
his Administration, but for an
America united in its concern on
this issue," Shultz said. "Perhaps
for this reason, we succeeded in
obtaining grudging Soviet
acknowledgment of the rightful
place of human rights issues on
the agenda of official Soviet-
American discussions."
SHULTZ SAID he rejected the
view of some that contacts with
the Soviets should be limited. In-
stead he urged more contacts bet-
ween the governments as well as
between the American and Soviet
peoples.
"If we in the West are ever go-
ing to develop constructive rela-
tions with the Soviet Union, they
will not come by shunning con-
tact," he said.
"On the contrary, we must take
advantage of the new style of
Soviet diplomacy to expose Mr.
Gorbachev, his associates and the
Soviet people to the depth of our
revulsion at Soviet human rights
abuses. We must make use of
every channel we can, of every
forum that presents itself, to get
the Soviet leadership to
acknowledge the reality that less
repression at home is the key to
greater acceptance abroad,"
Shultz stressed.
By RICHARD BONO
And DIANE WOLKOW
ATLANTA (JTA) -
The decision by a Soviet
Jewish emigre living here to
return to the Soviet Union
has startled the organized
Jewish community.
Yuri Chapovaky, 27, announced
at an Oct. 24 press conference
that he was returning to the
Soviet Union because his hopes
for a better life were not fulfilled
in America. Chapovsky came to
the United States in 1979 with his
parents and younger brother.
With him at the press con-
ference, conducted by the Soviet
Information Office in
Washington, D.C., were three
other Soviet emigres wishing to
return, including another Jew,
Israel Glickman of Dallas.
CONVERSATIONS here with
friends of Chapovsky's family and
Jewish communal workers who
helped him indicated that his
departure was psychologically,
not politically, motivated.
Described as extremely bright,
especially in mathematics,
Chapovsky also was portrayed as
troubled, unhappy and dissatisfied
for some time.
"I think he has some problems,
and I don't think the United
States is one of them," said a
source close to the family. "I think
maybe it's just personal problems
... We don't feel he's thinking
straight"
Said another source, "It isn't
the politics, but his own mixed-up
reaction to life in America and
what he expects to find in Russian
society."
His family, which lives in the
Atlanta area, reportedly is
distraught over Yuri's decision.
They have been unavailable to the
media, and family friends are pro-
tecting their privacy. Those
friends who spoke with the
reporters did so anonymously.
Jewish communal workers and of-
ficials also were reluctant to com-
ment on the case, adhering to a
policy of client confidentiality.
HOWEVER, a Jewish com-
munal source said Chapovsky
worked part-time in Atlanta in
lf.3 after receiving a Master's
degree in applied mathematics at
the Georgia Institute of
Technology. During the Oct. 24
press conference, Chapovsky said
that despite the degree he was
unable to find a job.
But a former professor at the in-
stitute, John Wallace, questioned
Chapovsky's inability to find a job.
"Even the worst students get at
least one job offer, and the good
students get several very
lucrative job offers," he said in a
telephone interview. Chapovsky
made the institute's dean's list
several times, according to in-
stitute spokesman Charles
Harmon.
The Jewish communal source
also disclosed that after obtaining
the Master's degree, Chapovsky
studied in France toward his PhD,
and there as in the U.S., he was
"unhappy and dissatisfied." He
left France without completing
his studies, and when he returned
here "he was pretty much deter-
mined that the United States was
not for him either," said the
source.
SOVIET EMIGRES often have
trouble adjusting to the "radically
different" life in America, accor-
ding to Leonard Cohen, executive
director of the Jewish Family Ser-
vice here. Some Soviet emigres
can't shake the idea of having a
niche provided by society. But
most, including Chapovsky's fami-
ly, adapt just fine.
"Of the 600 Soviet refugees we
have resettled in Atlanta since
1973, this is the first overt situa-
tion that I'm aware of in which an
individual has actually chosen to
go back to Russia," Cohen said.

colloquium.
The ADL, he told the Pontiff,
was "deeply honored to be
represented in your day of prayer
and peace in Assisi. Perhaps what
is needed in addition to a day of
prayer for peace is a day in which
we contemplate the evil of ter-
rorism, and as the site for such
prayers against the scourge of ter-
rorism and war, where more ap-
propriate than in the city of peace,
Jerusalem, led by whom, more ap-
propriately, than by your pro-
phetic voice of peace."
RABBI Leon Klenicki, director
of the ADL's Interfaith Depart-
ment and one of the speakers at
the colloquium, told reporters
later, "John Paul didn't reply to
the suggestion, but his face clearly
expressed pleasure. He lingered a
while to chat with us."
Other organizers of the collo-
quium, which was conducted at
the Domus Mahae Convention
Center here, were the Pontifical
University of St. Thomas
Aquinas, the Centro Pro Unione
and Sisters of Zion (SIDIC), in
cooperation with the Holy See's
Commission for Religious Rela-
tions with the Jews.
Only basic faith commitments
defining Christian and Jewish
identities were firmly "off limits"
for discussion. Otherwise, the
papers read and discussed covered
a wide range of theological and
historical subjects. The at-
mosphere was lively and there
were broad areas of general
agreement.
Three main points that emerged
from papers and discussion were:
a deepening sense of common
Biblical roots; a joint positive and
negative evaluation of liberation
theology; and acceptance of Israel
in all it* human and political im-
perfections, as the first stage of

104 Jews Exit
NEW YORK (WNS) Only
104 Soviet Jews were permitted
to leave the Soviet Union in Oc-
tober, according to the Coalition
to Free Soviet Jews. This brings
the 1986 Jewish emigration total
so far to 736. In 1984, only 8%
Soviet Jews were given permis-
sion to leave, and last year, 1,140
were granted exit visas.
Israel Signs
$5.1 Million SDI Contract
TEL AVTV (JTA) Israel
signed a contract with the U.S.
last Wednesday (Nov. 5) to under-
take research on anti-ballistic
missile defense systems, a project
related to the Reagan Administra-
tion's Strategic Defense Initiative
(SDI), commonly known as Star
Wars.
The contract, reported to be in
the neighborhood of $5.1 million,
is the first of its kind entered into
by the U.S. with a non-NATO
country. It was signed here by
David Ivri, director general of the
Defense Ministry, and Gordon
Smith, deputy director nf the SDI
Organization.
IT IS REGARDED as Israel's
first bid for a share in the $27
billion SDI research allocation
based on the U.S.-Israel
memorandum of understanding
on strategic cooperation signed by
the two countries last May.
Apart from participating in
lucrative SDI contracts, Israel has
a special interest in anti-ballistic
missile research to counter the ad-
vanced Soviet SS-21 short-range
missiles reportedly in Syrian
hands. The SS-21s are capable of
reaching any part of Israel from
Syrian territory.
Meanwhile, U.S. Deputy
Secretary of Defense William
Taft, touring Europe and the Mid-
dle East, began a three-day visit
to Israel. He met with Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin and senior
officials of the Defense Ministry
at Israel Defense Force
headquarters.
Israel Radio reported that Taft
would renew a contract with
Israel Aircraft Industries (LAI) for
the maintenance of 15 Israel-
made Kfir jet fighter-bombers on
lease to the U.S. Navy. The Israeli
planes are used to simulate Soviet
aircraft in combat exercises.

urg last month.
CHIRAC'S OFFICE issued a

Syria, submitted by Britain at the
EEC meeting. He allegedly told
Borchgrave that he did not know
the real truth but that Kohl and

ediately here and abroad that
hirac's statement fell short of a
nial.
The West Germans reacted
grily. and an Israeli official said
was "staggered" by the
inbelievable," "ridiculous"
ory. Borchgrave said on French
evision Saturday that if the
nch "call me a liar" his
wspaper would print the full
anscript in his taped interview
ith Chirac.
Reinhard Bettzuege, spokesman
r the Foreign Ministry in Bonn,
id, "This story is pure invention
hich we totally, clearly and une-
ivocally deny." Earlier,
iriedhelm Ost, a spokesman for
ohl, said, "Aside from the fact
at we are consulting Chirac, the
est German government has
ver had such information
garding the airliner bomb at-
mpt) and therefore could never
ve given such information to
e French government."
AT A MEETING with French
ewish community leaders here
,i. lay night, scheduled long
efore the Washington Times
ory appeared. Chirac avoided
e subject and was not pressed.
A' the Luxembourg meeting in
iiestion, British Foreign
ecretary Sir Geoffrey Howe urg-
Britain's EEC partners to take
rung measures against Syria for
.red involvement in interna-
>nal terrorism.
Hritain broke diplomatic rela-
lona with Damascus, charging
in the Syrian Ambassador in
mdon and his staff acted in col-
ision with Nezar Hindawi, the
irdanian national convicted of
'- El Al bomb attempt and
mtenced to 45 years in prison.
According to the Washington
Britain's Jews
pown in Number
LONDON (JTA) The
ewish community was the only
on-Chrstian community to shrink
i Britain between 1980 and 1985,
ccording to report on the new
987-88 UK Christian Handbook
i the Jewish Echo of Glasgow,
Scotland. The Jewish community
defined as those actively
ssociated with synagogues
ecreased from 111,000 to
09,000.
During the same period, the
loslem population increased by
50,000 to 825,000 and Christian
lurches have lost a half million
lembers. Sikhs increased by
0.000 to 180,000 and Hindus by
0.000 to 130,000.
Handbook figures, although
eportedly supplied by the Board

jHERRY HILL, N.J. (JTA)
Dr. Eugene Bass has been in-
aUed as president of the Jewish
aeration of Southern New
rsey, succeeding Michael
arhalow.
Israel's secret service Mossad
may have masterminded the
whole affair with the help of
Syrian dissidents who wanted to
discredit President Hafez Assad
BORCHGRAVE said Chirac
asked not to be quoted directly on
this matter but agreed to have his
remarks paraphrased.
Chirac's own party, the neo-
Gaullist Rally for the Republic
(RPR), and the opposition
Socialist Party took the Prime
Minister to task over the weekend
for having been at best naive to
put himself and his government in
an embarrassing position. Of-
ficials close to Chirac said he may
have been entrapped by Bor-
chgrave, a hardline conservative,
whom he believed mistakenly to
represent The Washington Post.
The Washington Times is a
rightwing newspaper owned by
the Rev. Sun Yung Moon.
Since his election victory over
the Socialists last Mar. 15, Chirac
has tried to improve his relations
with Israel and with French Jews.
His reception by Jewish leaders
here Sunday night was decidedly
lukewarm.
Theo Klein, president of the
Representative Council of Major
French Jewish Organizations
(CRIF), alluded to the
Washington Times report in his
introductory remarks. "You are
our host, and we shall ask you no
questions. We nonetheless hope
that you will answer the question
which is on all of our minds," he
said.
The Prime Minister, who sat
between Israeli Ambassador
Ovadia Soffer and French Chief
Rabbi Rene Sirat, carefully avoid-
ed the issue.
