Robinson pointed out that the
JDC has often contributed funds
in the past for earthquake relief
and other natural disasters. The
latest such contribution was for
earthquake relief in Yugoslavia in
May of this year. Similar con-
tributions were made for general
relief purposes to Rumania, Italy,

Shimon Peres to Lecture at
UJA Conference on Dec. 8
NEW YORK Shimon Peres,
leader of Israel's opposition
Labour Party, will deliver the
annual Louis A. Pincus Memorial
Lecture at the United Jewish
Appeal's 1980 National Con-

SHIMON PERES has been at
the forefront of Israeli political
life for more than 20 years. From
1959 to 1965, he served Prime
Ministers David Ben-Gurion and
Levi Eshkol as deputy defense
minister. He has also served as
minister of transportation and
communications, minister of the
administrated areas and, from
1974 to 1977, minister of defense.
The Pincus Memorial Lecture
is scheduled to conclude the UJA
1980 Annual Conference. Pro-
claimed "A Time To Be To-
gether" by Field, the conference
will formally open with a lun-
cheon on Thursday, Dec. 6, when
former Foreign Minister Moshe
Dayan will deliver the keynote
address, entitled "Israel on the
Threshold of Peace."

Lecture.
Peres, author of The Next
Phase and David's Sling, two
books that deal with Israel's
political and military history is,
according to Field, "a man of
passion and vision; the out-
standing choice to deliver the
Louis A. Pincus Memorial
Lecture."
This annual series,
inaugurated at the UJA National
Conference in 1973, is dedicated
to the memory of a "unique
individual whose contributions to
Jewish consciousness. Jewish
identity, Jewish culture and
Jewish education are beyond
measure," according to Field.
"As chairman of the Jewish
Agency, as a man of the deepest
commitment and understanding,
at home in Jewish communities
everywhere, Pincus was one of
the most profound forces in our
time in the creation and sus-
taining of the partnership be-
tween Israel's people and the
Jews of the free world."
The Jewish War Veterans, Albert AronoviU Post 373, the

Help for Refugees
Resolution of the CJF Assembly
The neonle of Indn-China nrt> in trairedv. We commend the contributions to the Cambodiar
The people of Indo-China are in
severe political dislocation
resulting in a flood of refugees.
We reaffirm our commitment
towards specific financial and
refugee absorption programs.
The people of Cambodia, both
of Chinese and native extraction,
have been the victims of the
competition of outside powers for
control of their country. Some
have been deliberately expelled,
others given a "choice" between
removal from their homes to
economic and social wastelands
or expulsion, and still others have
simply fled to avoid the ravages
of war and starvation. The result
is that several hundred thousand
have left the country by boat or
on foot, and are crowded into
refugee camps all over Southeast
Asia. Several hundred thousand
more, perhaps as many as a
million, have starved to death,
and hundreds of thousands more
are approaching that state.
Jews, who remember the
Holocaust, recall the indifference
of the world to that terrible
tragedy. We commend the
United States for taking the lead
in calling conferences, both
through the United Nations and
otherwise, to assist in relieving
the immediate problem of
starvation by sending food,
medicine, and money to the
needy both inside and outside
Cambodia, and in dealing with
the long-term problem by ad-
mitting more refugees to this
country. We applaud the U.S.
Congress for its forthright action
in recently approving a $60
million allocation for immediate
use in refugee relief. Many
countries have begun to take
action but have not yet
responded in a mode consistent
with the severity and urgency of
the situation.
Out of deep concern over the
threat of starvation in Cambodia
and in response to the expressed
eagerness of the Jewish com-
munity to help avert this
tragedy, the American Jewish
Joint Distribution Committee, as
a member of the Interfaith
Hunger Appeal, has made
NCJW Urges MoreU.S. Aid
The National Council of Jewish
Women has called upon
President Carter and Congress to
substantially increase U.S. aid to
the people of Cambodia. In a
statement authorized by its
Executive Committee, NCJW
evoked the memory of the Nazi
slaughter of six million Jews and
said that such a holocaust must
never be repeated. Since 1975,
approximately three million
Cambodians have been
systematically killed by the
former regime of Pol Pot. or have
been starved id death.
"In addition to urging the U.S.
government to give aid,'* NCJW
said, "we ask the administration
to take strong political initiatives
with those governments which
are responsible for obstructing
the distribution of food and
medicines to the Cambodian
people. The American people
must continue to provide the
major leadership in the struggle
for, and ultimate victory of,
universal decency and human
rights for all people."
contributions to the Cambodian
Relief Fund and is offering
professional and technical
assistance. Contributions from
the Jewish community may be
sent to JDC earmarked for
Cambodian relief. We urge our
member Federations to en-
courage individuals to contribute
to local Federations for tran-
smission to JDC.
We also commend HIAS and
other American Jewish
organizations for assisting in the
resettlement of refugees from
Southeast Asia, and the
Federations that have par-
ticipated in the local resettlement
process. We encourage other
Federations to assist in the
formation of local coalitions of
voluntary agencies in an effort to
absorb as many refugees as
possible.
We commend our Canadian
communities who this summer
undertook the sponsorship of
1,000 Vietnamese refugees as
part of a Canadian program
involving government as well as
private sponsorship for set-
tlement in Canada.

Court Rejects Neo-Nazi Canard
NEW YORK (JTA) -
A recent decision by the
West German Supreme
Court flatly rejected the
canard circulated by neo-
Nazi dements that the
Holocaust was a fraud and
slated specifically that it
was. in fact, a part of the
consciousness of Jews and
entitled them to special
regard and respect from
their fellow citizens. It is
considered a landmark
decision.
The details of the case on
which the judgment was based
were described by Dr. Stephen.1.
Kolh in the course of a report on
European anti-Semitism at a
iiurting of the World Jewish
Congress American Section here
last week. Roth is director of the
Institute of Jewish Affairs, the
WJC's London-based research
organization. He hailed the
decision.
HE SAID the Federal
Supreme Court in Bonn passed
its judgment on Oct -9 in the
case (it a nun -Jewish German
student born alter 1945 whose
urn Jewish grandfather was
killed at Auschwitz.
The student was offended by a
poster put up by a neighbor
which stated that the murder ol
six million Jew a by i he Nazis w as
.i Zionist swindle." The com-
plainant could not avoid viewing
the poster on his way to and from
hi> apartment and sued for an
injunction for its removal.
A lower court upheld his right
lo sue, but an appeals court
rejected it on grounds that his
relationship with his grandfather
was not sufficient to give him
legal standing lo bring action.
The Supreme Court however,
declared otherwise. Roth
reported.
IT HELD that the unique fate
of Jews gave them a claim for
regard and respect on the part of
all German citizens, that the
Holocaust was part of the
consciousness of Jews and a
muter of their personal dignity
io be perceived as the group who
suffered persecul ion and to whom
Other citizens hear a moral
responsibility
The court said thai respect oi
ihese feelings had to be regarded
us a guarantee for the non-
n [K'tit ion ol the past and was an
essential condition making it
possible for Jews to live in
< lermany.
Whoever denied the truth of
past events denied every Jew the
respect to which he is entitled,
the court declared. It said that
an) attempt to justify, to gloss
over or to dispute the fact ol the
Holocaust showed contempt
against every person identified
with persecution.
FINALLY, the court affirmed
that the evidence oi the tacts of
the Holocaust was over-
whelming, Roth reported
The court upheld the student's
standing as an injured patty on
grounds that the Na/.is would
have classified him as a "second
grade racially mixed' person and
he would have been subjected to
persecution.

U.S. Voices Concern For
Fate of Nablus Mayor
By HELEN SILVER
WASHINGTON (JTA) The United States said it
agreed with a statement by the United Nations Security
Council expressing concern over the imprisonment and
planned deportation by Israel of Nablus Mayor Bassam
Shaka.
"The deportation is clearly a step that has deep psychological
impact on other West Bank leaders and on the population there,"
State Department spokesman Hodding Carter said. "We believe that
with the autonomy talks under way a special effort must be made by
all parties to avoid actions that will make negotiations more difficult.
We have joined as a government in the Security Council statement
expressing our concern."
SECURITY COUNCIL statement was made after an informal
meeting of the Council in New York last night in which the Council
agreed to Secretary of State Cyrus Vance's demand that Iran's
request for a Security Council meeting be put off until the hostages in
the U.S. Embassy in Teheran are released.
The Council's President, Sergio Palacios de Vizzio of Boliva, told
reporters he was authorized by the Council to make the statement of
concern.
Carter said that "We have expressed our concern on this matter to
the Israeli government." Carter had said that the U.S. would have "no
comment" until the legal and political situation has been cleared up.
At a State Department briefing Carter was also asked about the U.S.
dealings with the Palestine Liberation Organization in the efforts to
free the hostages in Iran.
CARTER SAID "in this one instance," the U.S. would do anything
to obtain the release of the Americans held in the Embassy.
Meanwhile, Jewish religious leaders were scheduled to join
Christian and Moslem leaders in an interfaith service at the National
Cathedral here to pray for the safety of the hostages. The service was
organized by the families of the hostages.

Congratulations
When Congregation Schaarai Zedek observes its
85th anniversary tonight, it will really be the 66th
anniversary of the Tampa Jewish community. This
was the first organized Jewish group of any kind in
our community and the "grandfather" of the Jewish
community as we know it today.
With all the "looking back" at one's roots, it is
refreshing to know that Tampa can look back and
trace its communal development rather easily. It is
also fitting that in this edition of the paper the an-
nouncement appears of our city's newest
congregation's building plans. We think our fore-
fathers would not only be astonished at what the
Tampa Jewish community of today is like, we think
they would be proud!
Congratulations, Congregation Schaarai Zedek!

Israel's ceding of a 600 sq. mi. region of desert
two months ahead of schedule, which includes Mt.
Sinai and the Santa Katerina Monastery, was
followed in rapid succession Monday by a second
Israeli withdrawal this time from the Alma oil
fields in the western Sinai, which Israel drilled and
developed to the point where it was producing about
one-quarter of the nation's annual petroleum needs.
This is the second time in its 30-year-plus
history that Israel has been forced out of the Sinai by
international maneuvering, thus giving Arab forces
the advantage of a victory they could not achieve on
the battlefield.
But this is the first time that Israeli withdrawal
is being accompanied by a firm commitment of peace
with the erstwhile leading Arab antagonist, Egypt.
The price in Jewish blood spilled in these
concessions is enormous. It is essentially a betrayal
of sacrifices that have been made in the past; but the
prize, we are told, is worth it.
Still, in the end, there is not a nation we know of,
outside of Israel, that has been forced to make such
concessions in victory. What is worse, not only do
the concessions go unrecognized and imp raised, but
Israel continues largely to be reviled and to be
threatened by the very peoples who benefit from the
concessions themselves.
The price will be worth it, nevertheless, if there
is genuine peace, but that is a prospect, except
apparently for Egypt at this time, that is far off. One
can not help being suspicious when the astronomic
cost is being paid, while the product remains un-
dp|iver*d.
Rio Mayor Says He
Won't See PLO Rep
RIO DE JANEIRO (JTA) Mayor Israel Klabin
denied the announcement, made in Brasilia by Farid
Sawan, the Palestine Liberation Organization rep-
resentative in Brazil, that Sawan had been invited to meet
the mayor and had accepted the invitation.
"AS A JEW, I am not going to receive a man who
represents an international organization whose declared
aim is to destroy Israel and also aiming at my destruc-
tion," Klabin told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
A few weeks ago, in one of his public attacks against
the Jews of Brazil, Farid Sawan called Mayor Klabin one
of "the leaders of the racist Zionism in Brazil." Klabin
also told the JTA that a meeting of mayors from various
countries will be held here soon and that one of those
invited is Mayor Teddy Kollek of Jerusalem.
Presidential Favors Overwhelm
MY CUP will never cease
runnething over. First, President
Carter named Robert Strauss as
bis special envoy to the Middle
Best. Then, after asking Strauss
to take over as chief of his re-
elect ion campaign, the President
announced the appointment of
Sol Linowitz to succeed Strauss
in the peace-negotiating slot.
And now comes Mr. Carter's
latest ploy, the appointment of
Philip M. Klutznick to fill the
void left whan Juanita Kreps
resigned as Secretary of Com-
merce.
WHAT DOES this bevy of
Jews mean? Rabbi Alexander
Schindler put it best at a gather
ing of some 2,000 members of the
United Synagogue of America in
Upstate New York but week,
when he said that the President is
practicing a form of "political
anti-Semitism."
Schindler was talking about
Carter's timing in the enforced
resignation of Andrew Young to
get the heat off the adminis-
tration and onto the American
Jewish community Carter had
been looking to get rid of the ir-
repressible Young for a long time
and knew he would need a scape-
goat to take the jolt of Black
wrath.
But there can be little doubt
that Schindler's analysis of
Carter's realpolitik aptly applies
to the Jewish appointments, as
well. The President's rationale is
simple. How are Jews going to
criticize Mr. Carter's tactics in
the Young affair and his brutal
role in the Middle East peace
negotiations when, at home, he
surrounds himself with a phalanx
of Jewish officials of his own
making?
OP THE three Jewish per-
sonalities involved, two of them,
Strauss and Klutznick, are in-
credible egotists of the order, say,
of a John Connally or a Henry
Kissinger. There would be little
use in attempting to dissuade
them from staying on little use
in suggesting to them that by
accepting their appointments
they are giving Mr. Carter the
kind of ammunition he oughtn't
have.
But I am somewhat surprised
at Sol Linowitz, a longtime, dis-
tinguished American Jewish
community leader with far more
savvy about him than is apparent
in the fraternal enthusiasms that
exude from Mr. Klutznick, who
rather seems like a Georgie Jessel
in slightly more sophisticated
ambassadorial drag; or than Mr.
Strauss, the perennial relief
pitcher in the arena of political
opportunism, who never wins any
games, but who never loses any
either.
Mindlin
If my hunch about the former
Xerox mogul is correct, hell not
be able to tolerate the Carter
administration's tactics in the
Middle East for very long, which
are managing piecemeal to
implement the Rogers formula of
the first Nixon era with an eye
toward squeezing Israel back into
its 1948 borders.
STILL, the problem is not the
trio of appointees; they are
already captive and doing their
work as programmed. The
problem is the American Jewish
community and how it perceivee
the President and his political
prestidigitation.
What is important is that they
. me to see Mr. Carter and his
shabby trickery for what they
iire. The flaccid ideological
commitments that permitted him
co sow his political favors broad-
side in the unappeasable garden
of anxious Jewish egotism is the
same flaccid Carter ideological
commitment to Israel in the
Middle East. This is to say that
there is no commitment, except
for useless palaver about biblical
prophesies fulfilled.
Strip away the prayers, the
endless sermonizing, the Sunday
school classes, the soft southern
rhetoric, and you have a mouth-
ful of peanut brittle the tough.

In the Jewish propensity for
such alliances, there is no virtue

be flattered by the Carter ap-
pointments in the sense that the
appointments reflect on their
ethnic pride, than let them at
least pay heed to Rabbi Schin-
dler's declaration at the United
Synagogue gathering.
SAID SCHINDLER lumping
Carter and Connally into the
same category of excellence and
trustworthiness: If these are the
candidates who confront each
other in the 1980 presidential
election, "I'll commit suicide."
More to the point would be to
tell Strauss, Linowitz. Klutznick,
& Co., "For shame." There is
nothing noble in the role of
puppet. Indeed, there is much
that is ignoble in helping the
puppeteer do his behind-the-
scenes string-pulling routine.

A Family Tradition
> 1979, Elaine Fantle Shimberg
Each family has its own strangely-unique traditions. In
mine, it's the "ceremony of the box."
All my relatives save boxes ... not the delicately-enameled
boxes from Japan, nor the intricately-detailed inlaid wood boxes
of India. We collect gift boxes.
Early in life, children in our family learn that it's not the
gift that counts, but the box it came in.
Gift boxes have their pecking order, judged according to
availability, solidarity, beauty, feel and usefulness. On a scale
from one to ten (with ten being the highest), a Steuben glass gox
gets a ten.' It's solid, is a lovely shade of blue-gray, and is very
deep. Simple box courtesy' dictates that you return this box to
its owner after removing the gift inside.
Godiva chocolate boxes, covered with gold foil, also rate a
'ten.'
While usually not ranking boxes from jewelry stores, one of
the family favorites is a small, red leather gox with gold trim.
Inside, embossed on white satin, is the word. "Cartier. My
sister got it when she lost a contact lens in Cartier's restroom
and they mailed it back to her in that box. That box has been
circulating in our family for five years. .
Chicago's Marshal) Field and Co., boxes get a seven,'
although if they're tied with the usual gold twine, they rate an
eight.' Boxes from Neiman-Marcus also get an "eight.'
Locally, boxes from Wolf Brothers score 'seven,' the
Loungerie, 'six-and-a-half,' Maas, five,' and Bur dine's 'four.'
Cigar boxes get anywhere from a 'four' to a 'six,' depending on
brand and condition.
Box etiquette demands that you unwrap a gift, (saving the
paper for Aunt Mary who collects wrapping paper) and run your
fingers over the top of the box. You lift your eyes to meet those
of the gift-giver. "Oh," you exclaim, "it's the---------box."
We've been recycling boxes long before anyone even heard
of recycling. Most of our better boxes circulate each year at
Chanukah, Mother's Day and birthdays. If the gift-giver says,
"keep the box," it usually means either that (1) it only was a
three' box or (2) that the giver has an event up-coming and
you'd better give him / her a gift in that same box.
When I moved into a new house, one packing carton was
filled with empty gift boxes, too pretty to be thrown away. My
sister from Iowa just sent my daughter a birthday present in a
box from Tampa's O. Falks Department Store, and it's been out
of business for some years. My mother has a 'box' closet filled
with empty gift boxes she's saving for special occasions. Doesn't
everyone?
Strange, you say? Not at alL What about the old Valentine
cards you're saving? Or the rubber bands? Or the empty coffee
cans.?
Let me know if you need a box to put them in. I just may
have one.

King Walter KesBler of the Krewe of Venus went out of office
at the annual grand ball and pagent held Friday night, Nov. 23,
at Curtis Hixon Center. At the same time, his queen, Jackie
Gardner, handed over her crown. Walter held this position for a
one year term in which he was called upon to preside at a number
of social functions, including the Krewe of Venus festivities at
Mardi Gras in New Orleans. The Venus Krewe enters a beautiful
and original float in the Gasparilla parades every year. The
King. Queen, and their Court ride through the streets on the
float during these festivities.
Susan, daughter of Walter and his wife Lee, was a member
of the Krewe of Venus court the year before her father's reign.
Susan recently graduated from the University of South Florida
and is now working at General Motors Acceptance Corporation.
Walter is a past president of Temple Schaarai Zedek (as was his
father I. Z. Kesalerl and is a past potentate of Egypt Temple
Shrine. Our congratulations to you King Walter as you step
down as ruler of this Krewe that now celebrates its 15th
birthday.
Look forward to hearing a real "blow by blow" report on
the nine day mission to Israel in which a number of our Tampa
friends are participating. We'll learn all the exciting details and
let you know from mission chairman Paul Perehes.
At a recent Congregation Schaarai Zedek Sunday morning
forum, Dr. Hans Juergensen, professor of humanities at the
University of South Florida, spoke on the topic: Germany: 1918-
1933 (An historical, political, and economic discussion on the
developments in Germany which led to the rise of Hitler). As
professor of humanities at USF, Dr. Juergensen has helped to
develop the Department of Creative Writing. His list of im-
pressive publications includes nine books plus writings in
numerous journals both here and abroad. Both Hans and his
wife. Use, are poets of international standing, and both have
published several volumes of poetry. In their youths, they both
experienced Germany: 1918-1933. The Juergensens are longtime
and devoted members of Congregation Schaarai Zedek.
ORT (evening chapter) held its annual food and craft
auction Tuesday night, Nov. 20, at the Jewish Community
Center. The items sold came from the talented members of this
organization. Numerous wares such as paintings, knitted items,
macrame, needlepoint, hand-sewn items, plants, cakes, fudge,
cookies, and main dishes were available for purchase. Not only
was this a fun-filled and festive evening, but everyone who
purchased something went home feeling he had gotten a real
bargain and delicious treats to serve families. This auction has
really become a tradition with ORT, and one that all who were in
attendance hope continues for many years to come.
A very happy November birthday to our many Jewish
Towers residents. Those people celebrating their special day
during this month include: Freda Waller, Kathleen Cole, Irene
Fried, Marie Sauto, Fay Niegelberg, Clorinda Barreiro, Alice
Israel, Nancy McNerney, Ruth Levine, Ben Kantor, Hilda
Morris, William Shapiro, Agnes Tiernan. Florence Gordon and
Estelle Seigel.
Also, we'd like to wish a very happy anniversary to
residents, Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Guito. Our hopes for many more
healthy and happy years.
At the November Sisterhood meeting at Congregation
Schaarai Zedek, 22 new members were honored with a special
introduction and the presentation of a rose to each during the
luncheon. What a special way to meet these new members:
Michele Bass, Gloria Berkowitz, Shelley Fisher, Barbara
Goldman, Lois Lutzk, Sandra Newman, Ann Rudolph, Dorothy
Salm, Susan Schwartz, Jane Spector, Anne Beck, Katherine
Cowen, Deborah Garber, Susan Kanengiser, Elinor Levy,
Roxanna Marcus, Shelia Rementer. Franci Rudolph, Miriam
Sansweet, Dale Solomon and Paula Winokur.
It is terrific to see so many new people becoming involved!

New Talks
On Autonomy
By GIL SEDAN
JERUSALEM (JTAI -
Israeli and F.gyplian working
groups met at the Laromme
Hotel in Tel Aviv for another
round of talks on autonomy for
the West Hank and (in/a Strip.
Ilaim Kubersky, chairman of the
Israeli delegation, opened the
proceedings with a summation of
the legal powers invested in the
Military Government.
This was an introduction to the
agenda item dealing with the
powers and responsibilities" of
the proposed autonomous
authorities, a subject on which
Israel and F.gypt remain far
apart.
THE EGYPTIANS insist that
the autonomy council be given
the widest possible authority
while the Israelis want its powers
strictly limited. The Egyptian
delegation asked for time to
study Kuberskys report and
further discussion of the "powers
and responsibilities" item was
postponed.
The atmosphere of the talks
was described as "friendly" and
minimal. The Israelis and Egyp-
tians are on a first name basis
and chat amiably during their
coffee breaks, one source said.
There is no sense of urgency.
There is no rush so why pretend
there is," one observer said.
'The talks were devoted to the
technical matters involved in
holding elections for the
autonomous authority. Kubersky
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that progress was being
made and the two parties have
gotten down to the discussion of
details.
THE PRESENT round of
talks continued through
Tuesday. The United States is
represented by James Leonard,
deputy to Robert Strauss,
President Carter's special envoy
to the Middle East. Strauss is to
Ik- replaced shortly by Sol
Linowitz, who is expected to visit
the M iddle East at a later stage.
President Anwar Sadat of
Egypt meanwhile continues to
express optimism over the
successful outcome of the nego-
tiations. Asked about the basis
for Sadat's confidence, the chair-
man ol the Egyptian working
group, Abdul Latif, told the JTA
that He hopes a breakthrough
will come sooner or later, but we
still have to work on it."

legates that the Con-

the marketplace, the use of
leisure time, all reflect the Jewish
way of life."
"MAN If, indeed most, of our
(Conservative) members are not
actively Jewish nor truly com-
mitted, although they are af-
filiated," Dr. Cohen said. "The
majority of Conservative Jews
want the observances to be
fulfilled vicariously but they have
yet to absorb them into the fabric
of their own lives."
Turning to a question that has
surfaced in recent years,
Dr.Cohen said the "ordination of
women is not the crucial
challenge that confronts us the
real challenge is instilling the
living quality of Torah into our
lives."
He stressed that "the Con-
servative synagogue must
become not only a house o
worship but a house of study. 1
believe the synagogue must be
transformed."
He added that recent surveys
among Conservative Jewish
families "indict us in the absence
of Torah by any definition as the
determining force of our lives."
AT AN earlier session, Leon
Dulzin. chairman of the World
Zionist Organization, called on
the Conservative movement to
increase American Aliyah to
Israel, expand its educational
programs, and improve the
quality of Jewish life, both in the
U.S. and Israel.
lie also revealed that since the
takeover of Iran by the Ayatollah
Khomeini, some 15.000 Jews
from that country have reached
Israel. Dulzin also advised the
convention delegates that efforts
are continuing through
diplomatic channels to transfer
the 25.000 Falasha Jews from
Ethiopia to Israel. and
acknowledged that these efforts
are being frustrated by the
disinclination of Ethiopian
authorities to even discuss them.
The convention honored Jacob
Timerman. the Argentine Jewish
editor released recently after
having been kept under house
arrest for nearly two years.
A REPORT on the growth of
the Conservative movement in
Israel disclosed that there are
now 31 Conservative
congregations in all parts of the
Jewish State. The convention
resolved to press forward in
Israel with its new program to
bring the Conservative Judaism
message to Israel. The new
movement has been designated
as the "Mesorati movement." or
"traditional movement."

In Budapest
Holocaust Is Today, Not 35 Years Ago
By THEODORE D. FEDER
JDC Regional Director
for Europe and North Africa
It was 5:20 p.m. when we
arrived at the synagogue, and we
could see why Imre Heber, chair-
man of the Federation of Hun-
garian Jews in Budapest, advised
s to come early. Services were
Scheduled to begin at 6 o'clock,
ut already the synagogue was
nil and hundreds of people were
lilting around the entrance.
Michael Schneider, also a JDC
representative, and I had our
Yom Kippur dinner in mid-after-
noon which meant that our fast
would last for 28 hours. Our only
difficulty was in choosing what to
eat from among the heavily
spiced Hungarian dishes so that
we would not suffer from thirst
during the fast.
We decided to attend the
Dohenv Synagogue for a number
Daf Yomi
Chevra Kaddisha
by RABBI THEODORE BROD
The name Chevra Kaddisha, (holy sacred brotherhood) or
among Sephardim known as Chevra Chesed Ve-met, (kindness
and truth brotherhood), was applied to a membership
association which dealt primarily with the ritual and reverent
burial of the dead, according to Jewish law and tradition.
There were other associations of this sort that included a
Bikkur Cholim group, for visiting the sick and in general care of
the sick. Gemilut-Chasadim, providing free loans (no interest) to
the needy; Pidyon Shevuyim for ransoming captive or bonding
out Jewish prisoners; Hachnasat Orechim, feeding poor tran-
sients and Hachnasat Kallah, providing dowries for poor brides.
The most important function of the Chevra (Brotherhood)
was the Tihara, the preparation of the body for burial in ac-
cordance to the traditional laws of Israel. Those engaged in this
sacred task were called Mitassekim (workers). Among
Sephardim (Spanish) they were called Lavadores (washers)
because of their ritual washing of the bodies.
THE INSTITUTION of the Chevra Kaddisha existed
during the Talmud Era, formed because of the law that no
material benefit may accrue from the dead. As a result, no one
could engage in the disposal of the dead for profit or gain. Thus
it became a duty and function of the community.
The membership of the Chevra was limited to males who
were Bar Mitzvah. Women formed an auxiliary organization to
attend the dying and wash the female dead. They were called
"Nashim Zidkaniyot" (Righteous Women). After their own
demise, they were buried in a special part of the cemetery and
given a free funeral. In some cities the board of the Chevra was
comprised of 18 members because of the numerical value of Chai
(Life).
Every year the Chevra observed a Fast Day, on which after
the morning prayers, members visited the cemetery to repair the
tombstones and rake up the grounds; in the evening they held a
banquet (Se-uddah) for all members. The most popular date for
this was Adar 7, the traditional date of Moses' death
In the Talmud: R. Hiyya B. Abba said in R. Johanan name,
"When one of brothers dies, all the other brothers should look to
their deeds and fear. When one of a Chevra dies, the whole
Chevra should seek to mend their ways (Shabbath 106a)."
RAB JUDAH citing Rab said: "When a person dies in
town, all the townspeople are forbidden from doing work. R.
Hamnuna once came to a town and heard the sound of the
Funerary-Bugle, yet people continued to work, he then said: Let
these people be put under the Ban (Chyrim). Is there not a
person dead in town? They then told him that there was an
association in town that attended to burials. If so, said he to
them, it is allowed for you to work. (Mo'ed Katan 27b)
Resh Lakish said to Judah, the son of Nahmani, when they
were in a house of mourning: "Rise and say something with
regard to the friends who came to comfort the mourners. He
spoke and said: "Our brethren, bestowers of loving kindness
and sons of Bestowers of Loving Kindness, (Gomlay Chasudim),
who hold fast to the Covenant of Abraham who himself
bestowed Chesed (Loving Kindness), may the Lord of recom-
pense pay you your reward for your Holy Work. Blessed art
Thou who payest the recompense."
"Master of the World, redeem and save, deliver and help
Thy people Israel from pestilence, from the sword, plundering,
mildew, and from all kinds of calamities that may break forth
and come into the world. Before we call, mayest Thou answer
our pravers. Blessed art Thou who stayest the plague (Ketuboth
8b).
From the above Babylonian Talmud we derive that there
was a Chevra (Society) called Gomlay Chasudim, (Bestowers of
Loving Kindness) whose function was to pay a visit of con-
doleno- the house of mourners. During all the seven days of
mourning (Shiva), if new friends came to the house and if there
wa*"*a i .ii'irum (Minyan of 10 people) the Chevra Chesed Ve-emet
or Gomlay Chasudim would recite special Blessings called
Birch Richuvah (Blessings of Consolation. In our times this
Tradii ion of Blessings has vanished.
THERE IS another explanation found for the Blessings of
Richu\ih The term Richuvah refers to the "Open Space"
behind I he house of the Mourners.
It refers to the blessings the Mourners said in the Wide and
Open Space behind the house. Wneh many friends gathered to
carry the Mitzvah of Comforting the Mourners, there was
not su i ient room in the house. Therefore the Benedictions
were r ted before the overflow of people in the yard.
'"I iou makest me know the path of life; in thy presence is
fullne; >l joy, in thy right hand bliss for evermore.. (Psalma 16)
To be continued.
Anchat Yumim!

of reasons. It is the largest syna-
gogue in Europe, seating about
4,000 people. It was the syna-
gogue in which my wife's family
worshipped before and after
World War II. It also has special
significance for my family
because of a memorial there for
Hannah Szenes. a relative, who
parachuted into Hungary during
the war as a member of the
Hagana and was captured,
tortured and finally executed by
the fascists.
IT TOOK us about half an
hour to walk from our hotel to the
synagogue, an imposing red brick
building approximately 150 feet
high, 130 feet wide and 170 feet
long.
Schneider and I edged our way
slowly through the group and
were greeted by a member of the
synagogue committee. It was
impossible to enter the syna-
gogue through the front, so we
were taken around to the side and
we entered from the rear. In the
large dressing room, we greeted
Chief Rabbi Laszlo Szalgo,
Heber, the cantor, the director of
the choir, and the shammas.
We were momentarily stunned
as we entered the synagogue. It
was packed with men and
women. All 4.000 seats were
taken, and an overflow surged
into the three aisles in front of the
Bimah. There must have been at
least 5,000 people in the vast hall,
and we had no idea how many
people were standing outside.
There were some children and
young people, but the majority
were middle-aged and elderly.
The Kol Nidre services began.
The cantor's voice was glorious,
the choir in the loft first-rate, the
organ reverberated through the
cavernous auditorium.
There was a tremendous surge
of emotion during the services.
Not one of the women was
without a handkerchief to her
eyes. The men in front of me
sobbed openly, many uncontrol-
lably.
HOW MANY loved ones had
been lost by these isolated 5,000
Hungarian Jews? One did not
have far to go to be aware of the
Holocaust. In one side court
there had been a massacre of
thousands of Jews toward the
end of the war. In the other side
court, there were hundreds of
candles lit for the victims of the
Holocaust.
The services ended, the rabbi,
the shammas, the cantor and the
worshippers began to take off
their talleisim. But something
strange was happening
nobody in the vast audience
seemed to be moving. Some sat
quietly, but most were talking to
their neighbors, friends having a
rare opportunity of talking to a
Jewish neighbor. Schneider and I
went back to the Bimah to pay
our respects to the rabbi and
Jewish leaders and after a few
minutes we departed.
Michael Schneider and I
walked back to the hotel, shaken
by the experience but at the same
time uplifted by this show of
emotion and brotherliness on a
Jewish occasion in a synagogue
in the middle of Budapest.
We were told that on Yom
Kippur night, which fell on a
Sunday, there would be many
people because it was a non-
working day. However, on
Monday, which was Yizkor, there
would probably be fewer people.
WE DECIDED to get to the
synagogue on Monday morning
during the reading of the Torah.
All the seats were taken, but
there were no crowds in the
aisles. Yizkor service was
scheduled for 12:30. At 11:30 the
synagogue began to fill up. By
12:15, the synagogue was as full
as it had been the night before.
There were children who came
with school bags on their
shoulders. Many people
during their lunch hour.
I could not anticipate great
emotion than I experienced
evening before, but it was the,
during the short Yizkor servic,
It is impossible to describe th.
sobbing and wailing it Wl
just too much to put into ..,
After the services, the synagoguj
emptied quickly. The childrej
with their shoulder bags returne
to school. The workers returne
to their jobs.
For 20 hours the Jewish con
munity of Hungary relived
Holocaust and also recalled v
better days in modern Hungaria]
Jewish history, with thej
families in what was once one <
the most important Jewish con
munities of Europe.
It was a very special
Kippur, one which Micha,
Schneider and I will never, neve
forget.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
Vayetze
VAYETZE Jacob left Beersheba. On the way to Haran. at
sundown, Jacob lay down to sleep. He dreamed of a ladder
reaching from earth to heaven, and God's angels went up and
down the ladder.
Then God spoke to Jacob, saying: "This land will I give to
your descendants. I will be with you and protect you wherever
you go."
When Jacob arose in the morning, he said: "This must be
Gods House." And he called the place Beth-El the House of
God.
When Jacob came to Haran, he spent 20 years at the home
of his uncle Laban. He married Laban's daughters, Leah and
Rachel. Jacob's family increased; he became very rich and had
large flocks. But he heard Laban's sons saying: "Jacob has
gotten all his wealth from what our father had." So, after the
birth of his son Joseph, Jacob left Haran, taking with him hia
family and his possessions.
Laban pursued Jacob, but the Lord appeared in a dream to
Laban, Cautioning him not to harm Jacob. Laban listened to the
Lord and returned to Haran. Meanwhile Jacob continued on hi*
journey back to Canaan. Genesis 28:1032:3

| BLAKE WAS right. As we
ched the surface of the
Mem, we became quickly
Mre of an undercurrent of
ntment toward Jews among a
ificant number of Blacks we
nice with. It was equally clea.-
t many Jews had an in-
oplete, sometimes naive,
derstanding of the Black
hwrience in America.
IJhcse animosities and
^perceptions have resulted in
pine tragic confrontations
Obituary
between Blacks and Jews. Recent
examples indude the polarization
surrounding the Bakke case and
the violent incidents between
Blacks and Hasidic Jews in the
Crown Heights area of New York
City. These schisms are all the
more tragic when viewed in the
context of the history of Black-
Jewish relations.
A number of Jewish
organizations filed "friends of the
court" briefs on Bakke's behalf.
The position of the Jewish
community, though certainly not
a unanimous one, could be ex-
plained by a historically-rooted
fear of quotas, which had in the
past been used to exclude Jews
from professions and educational
opportunities, both in America
and in Europe. Nevertheless, this
position was viewed by
minorities as an attack upon the
limited degree of social progress
they had achieved.
PROVOST BLAKE feels that
the Bakke case has helped to
polarize Blacks and Jews. "You
see, it's the sort of situation
where Blacks and other
minorities have made very small
gains, then see those gains being
eroded," observed Blake.
"It's almost at the point where
you can't express any point of
view which can be analyzed and
discussed in some rational way.
You've got to take an ideological
stance; it's either A or B. It was
that sort of situation as far as
Bakke was concerned. There were
many Jewish groups who sup-
ported Bakke and were little
understood by people who don't
know Jewish history, and people
saw this as anti-Affirmative
Action."
This is a change from the civil
rights days when Jews and
Blacks saw their destinies as
inextricably linked. Another
significant change is that Jews,
by and large, are no longer in-
volved in exploitative roles in
Black communities.
In a visual society, Black-
Jewish relations become a
fundamental issue of racial
distinction. Jews are white and
Blacks are Black. For Jews the
questions of assimilation has
become something of an ob-
sessive concern. For Blacks, the
issue has little relevance.
DURING ONE of our Black-
Jewish dialogues, one of us asked
a 27-year-old Black student
named Paula whether Blacks
would fear losing their cultural
traditions if they were to enter
the economic and social main-
stream as had many Jews. "For
Black people, we don't have that
problem of being sucked up into
the majority culture,"
us.

waa "a very tough, in many ways
brave thing to do." He said that
-he wore a yarmulke around
campus for one day, and felt very
self-conscious. "People are
always questioning you. You're
an oddity. It's a kind of op-
pression." Alan continued. "I'm
personally looking into living in
Israel."
Lenny, a junior Religious
Studies major from Oakes. pulled
out the Star of David which he
wore around his neck, though
always inside his shirt. Paula
picked up on the irony im-
mediately. "I think you made a
good point. Already you look like
the majority culture, but you
hide what sets you apart. How do
you want it both ways?"
Statistically, both Blacks and
Jews are demographic minorities.
The word "minority" connotes
different things, however, in-
cluding economic oppression,
which Jews do not generally face
in this country. For this reason,
many Blacks refuse to
acknowledge the minority status
of Jews.
DR. BLAKE cites two reasons
why this is so: "One is pure anti-
Semitism Another point is
there are Blacks who look at
Jewish people as white .
There's some who would argue
that they can have it both ways.
If they want to be a minority
they can. There are some Blacks
who would say that because you
have it both ways, you're not a
minority.
Black anti-Semitism appears
to stem from two sources. One is
trie white Christian culture,
which is the origin of stereotypes
of the Jews that became part of
the black consciousness. Another
is a reaction to economic op-
pression in which Jews par-
ticipated in a small, though
highly visible way.
The stereotypes of Jews as
stingy businessmen of Christ-
killers voiced by some of the
Blacks we talked to could have
easily come from a Pole or an
Englishmen 100, 200 or even 500
years ago.
GREG, a Black Religious
Studies major who grew up on
Oakland, had little contact with
Jews as a youngster. He gave a
good analysis of the origin of
anti-Semitic stereotypes, saying,
"Everything that I had ever
heard about Jews was that they
were crafty and were always
trying to get the upper hand. I
didn't know where that came
from. Then I read that in Europe,
the kings would forbid any kind
of transactions with interest
among Christians, but en-
couraged Jews to come in so that
The Jewish students, however,
expressed discomfort with being
lumped together with the white
Christian, "Anglo" majority with
which they had little in common
historically, culturally, or
religiously. Some put forth tne
case that this culture was op-
pressive because it made Jews
ashamed of their identity.

when times got rough, they could
accuse the Jews of usury and
turn the wrath of the peasants
against them."
The idea that Jews are good
with money is not always entirely
negative. Lewanda, an Oakes
student whose mother lived with
Jews for five years, told us. To
me, they make better use of their
money than any other ethnic
group. Jews exploit their money
better."

If Israel A ttends Games
PLO Threatens to Bomb Site of Karate Competition in Tokyo
By HASKELL COHEN
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Dennis Hanover, coach of the
Israel karate team and head of
the Israel Karate Federation, left
here for Israel dismayed and
disturbed over the fact that the
Israel karate team's invitation to
the upcoming World Games,
involving 70 nations in Japan,
has been revoked.
Hanover, a South African, who
made aliya together with several
of his countrymen now
representing Israel in karate, was
in New York for a hurried trip to
set up a tour of the United States
for his karate team.
ACCORDING TO Hanover,
the Kyokushinkai karate
organization, one of two types of
karate in vogue around the world,
had invited Israel through its
association head, Mas Oyama, to
participate in the tournament
which will be held in Tokyo
beginning Nov. 20.
Oyama is highly respected all
over the world as a karate teacher
and is the initiator of the
Kyokuskhinakai type of karate^
He was Hanover's teacher and
got him interested in this type of
karate and offered to help
organize the Israeli karate people
involved in this sport-
Hanover told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency that Israel
competed in Japan in 1977 and
was very well received at that
time. According to Hanover,
perhaps the main reason for
Israel's dismissal from the 70-
nation group which will par-
ticipate in the karate tournament
is the fact that the Arab League
countries are very strong and
very much involved in the
organization of Kyokushinkai.
The Honorary President of the
Tokyo tournament is King
Hussein of Jordan.
THE PALESTINE Liberation
Organization has been invited
and will send a group of three
karate participants to represent
them in the tournament. It is
alleged that they told the
organizers of the tourney that in
the event Israel was invited l
showed up to compete, they.l
PLO, would bomb the site of|
competition.

Sports Scene Dither
Discus-Thrower 'Oleh' Defects Back Home
By HASKELL COHEN
NEW YORK Israel's sports
circles are in a dither because one
of their prime candidates for the
Olympics has defected.
Dan Gardner, an American
who migrated to Israel two years
ago, has. apparently, returned to
the States. Shmuel Lalkin. exec-
utive director of the Israel Sports
Federation, has advised friends
here that Gardner, who is rated
among the top 10 discus throwers
in the world, suddenly has
departed from the Holy Land to
return here.
It may be recalled by readers
thiit some time ago I pointed out
the fad that a concerted effort
was being mad.- by B group in
Israel to recruit American
athletes to come and make a/iya
so thai thej could represent
Israel in Moscow I pointed out
at the nine that it was a terrible
mistake, and it's beginning to
is though I might have been
right.
()l I OF a total ot seven
athletes who were snared by the
Israeli interests in sport-, headed
by Gen. Aharon Doron, only two
Americans are left Rich
Rothschild, a middle distance
runner, and Manny Rosenberg, a
top-notch sprinter. Kothschild
hails from William and Mary
College, and Rosenberg is a truck
man from the University of
Maryland. Both of these stal-
warts represented the United
States in the 1977 Maccabiah
Games
At a meeting conducted in the
U.S. Committee Sports for Israel
offices here. I pointed out very
vehemently to Doron that I
thought he and his followers were
making a grievous error in trying
to ensnare American Jewish ath-
letes to come to Israel in order to
qualify for the 1980 Olympics. In
order to qualify, any oleh has to
take out his citizenship papers in
Israel three years before the
Olympic Games take place.
At the time of our discussion.
I>oron tried to point out that it
was rather ludicrous to watch the
few Israel Olympians, every four
years, finish poorly in their
respective sports. Rather than
have a man lapped in the first leg
of a mile run. it was Doron's
opinion that perhaps with the aid
of ensnared aliyoth. Israel would
make a better showing in up-
coming Olympics Perhaps he
may have a point, albeit. I ditler
with him.
THE FACT remains that very
few Americans, and tor that
matter. Jewish athletes from
other parts ol the world, find it
possible to adjust to life in Israel
and alter a trial period eventual!)
take oil.
Even one ol the athletes. ,i
I hammer thrower, who
went bask home, found it hard to
adjust. Despite the fact that he
.1- granted acceptance to a
medical school in the Holy Land.
iie passed up the opportunity to
remain in t he land of his birth.
Baruch Shenberg. the publicity
director for the Israel Olympic
Committee, is visiting the States
and advises me that the com-
position of the Israeli contingent
at Moscow now appears to be at
the 26th or 28th person mark.
It can go up considerably if the
basketball team qualifies in the
Kuropean eliminations which will
be held in Geneva. Switzerland
next May Already eliminated are
all the wrestlers, including Rami
swo* OFPAMOCteS
Miron, who finished sixth in his
weight in Montreal the last
Olympic time out.
Shenberg revealed that Esther
Roth has agreed to come back to
train and will participate in
Moscow after declaring that she
was not going to compete again
she didn't like the treatment
accorded to her and her husband-
coach, Peter.

intervened and at this writing it
appears that Koth. who had
finished -ixth in the 110-meter
high hurdles in Montreal, will
rejoin the Israel Olympic Bquad.
The upshot ol the disturbance
between Roth and the Israel
Olympic Committee, with the
help o! Namir and Ofek, has
settled all difficult points be-
tween the two parties and it is
now concluded that Koth will be

Gets Thanks
From WJC
ByTAMARLEVr
(.KNKVA (JTAI Dr.
Gerhart Riegner. Secretary
General of the World Jewish
Congress, announced here that
his organization sent a letter to
the director general of the United
Nations Educational. Scientific
and Cultural Organization ex-
pressing its deep satisfaction and
its wholehearted support for a
proposal submitted by the
government of Poland to include
the former concentration camp in
Auschwitz in the World Heritage

This inclusion would confer
upon Auschwitz the national and
international protection provided
under the Convention for the
Protection of World Cultural and

THE CONVENTION was

ference of UNESCO in 1972. The
Polish proposal received support
by the Bureau of the World

The WJC, which enjoys

UNESCO, stated in its letter that
the inclusion of the Auschwitz
camp in the list will ensure the
safeguarding of its unique

Israel Honors Brzezinski's

By MICHAEL SOLOMON
MONTREAL (JTA) A
former Polish diplomat who
sheltered Polish Jews from the
Nazis at his consulate in Leipzig,
Germany, just before World War
II was honored by Israel at

The Tel Aviv Museum will host the 50th
Anniversary Exhibition of New York's Museum
of Modern Art, opening in February 1980.
American art from the Museum of Modem Art
will be the largest foreign exhibit ever to visit
Israel, as well as being the most comprehensive
exhibition of American Art ever to circulate
abroad.
In the U.S., Mrs. Joan Mondale is serving as
honorary chairperson of the Committee for
American Art from the Museum of Modern Art at
the Tel Aviv Museum, formed to promote
American and Israeli interest and support for the
forthcoming exhibition.
The exhibition includes 10 tons of paintings,
sculptures, furniture and films. Among those
whose works will be shown are such well-known
American names as Alexander Calder. Jackson
Pollock. Andy Warhol, Man Ray. Roy Lichten-
stein. Charles Fames and Louis I. Kahn.
Sett:ng aside a controversial resolution
criticizing Israel for human rights violations, the
Governing Hoard of the National Council of
Churches has set in motion a six-month period of
intensive study leading to the development of a
new policy on the Middle East.
The board has authorized a fact-finding trip to
the Middle Fast and open hearings in this
country to gather input for the new policy to be
introduced at the May, 1980 meeting of the 266-
member board, which represents 32 Protestant
and Orthodox communions.
By authorizing such an extensive policy
development process, the board paved the way for
an amicable delay in consideration of the issues
raised by a resolution that had already stirred
anger and concern among the Jewish community
here.
Introduced by the small Antiochian Orthodox
Christian Archdiocese of North America, the
North American wing of an Arab Christian
church headquartered in Syria, the resolution
charged Israel with "defiance of international
law."
The recent incident in Greensboro. N.C., in
which five Communist sympathizers were killed
allegedly by (Clansman, represents the first joint
venture in recent years of the Ku Klux Klan and
the American Nazi party, according to an
analysis by an official of the American Jewish
Committal
Milton Kllenn. director of Trends Analyses for
\,K', pointed out that this joint effort apparently
reflects the formation of a new organization, the
United Racist Front, by elements of the two
rightist groups.
Ellerin said that those Klansmen who par-
ticipated in the Greensboro incident were from a
number of North Carolina communities other
than Greensboro, and that they were affiliated
with rump groups unconnected with or involved
with any of the so-called "National Klans."
Career Army Officer
Takes Over As
Police Inspector
JERUSALEM (JTA) -
Gen. (res.) Herzl Shapir, a 50-
year-old career army officer who
was once a candidate for the post
of Chief of Staff, has been named
Inspector General of the Israeli
Police and will replace the in-
cumbent, Haim Tavori, in
January. His appointment was
approved by the Cabinet last
Sunday but was greeted with
mixed reactions in senior police
circles.
Objections were voiced by
some who saw the selection of an
army officer to be Israel's top law
enforcement official as a rebuff to
those who have made the police
their career and worked their way
up to senior positions.
BUT THE consensus among
the police, expresses by one
ranking officer, was "Let's give
him a chance. There is a lot of
work to be done." Some ob-
servers said that the first ap-
pointment of a senior police
officer from outside police ranks
reflected widespread public
dissatisfaction with the func-
tioning of the police under its
present command.
Shapir, a widower and father of
three sons, was born and
educated in Israel and has been in
the army since the War for
Independence in 1948. He was
commander of the tank corps in
the mid-sixties and in 1974 he
headed the Israeli military team
at the separation of forces talks
in Geneva after the Yom Kippur
War.
He served as commander of the
southern front from 1976-78 and
later spent a year at the
University of California in
Stanford. He was under serious
consideration to replace retiring
Gen. Mordechai Gur as Chief of
Staff earlier this year, but
Defense Minister Ezer Weizman
selected Gen. Rafael Eitan in-
stead.
Lisbon Says
Ambassador In
Good Condition
PARIS (JTA) Israels Ambassador to Portugal
Ephraim Eldar, shot by unknown gunmen outside his
Embassy, was reported in good condition following
surgery at the Santa Maria Hospital in Lisbon.
HOSPITAL OFFICIALS said the 44-year-old Israeli
envoy was hit in the right leg and arm and was treated for
fractures and a severed artery but is out of danger. The
assassins, whose machinegun and grenade attack killed
Eldar's 30-year-old Portuguese bodyguard and wounded
three other persons, are still at large.
Although several extremist groups have claimed
credit for the attack, the Portuguese authorities have no
firm clues yet as to the identity of the killers.
