Madari said.
"THEREFORE," he added,
"do not worry about this .
attributing to anybody or any
group imperialism or Zionism can
easily done by controlling the
ss'media, but testifying to
righteousness and justice is a
very difficult thing to do."
Madari refused to denounce
the anti-Khomeini uprising by
Turkish-speaking Iranians in
Azerbaijan province of which
Tabriz is the capital. He an-
nounced that he did not take part
in the referendum that approved
Khomeini's constitution last
week despite Khomeini's
exhortation that it was the
religious duty of every Moslem.
He also warned that Khomeini is
courting a civil war in Iran.
In Teheran, meanwhile, the
official Pars News Agency issued
a statement accusing Western
news agencies of being "at the
service of Zionism, imperialism
and international trusts and,
above all, America."
lined "May the Windpipe of
Imperialism and Zionism be
Cut," charged that Western
journalists "believe it is to be
their main duty to act as the
mouthpiece of international
Zionism in exploiting and
colonizing the oppressed nations
of the world and the deprived of
the world in particular.''
The Pars News Agency serves
the Islamic Society of Pars. The
statement, published in the Parsi
language, called for a demon-
stration against Western news
agencies last Sunday. The
demonstration was advertised
prominently in the newspaper
Islamic Republic, the mouthpiece
of Khomeini's ruling clergy.
Message from Begin

New Approaches Are Sought
To Palestinian Leaders
NEW YORK A message
from Israel Prime Minister
Menachem Begin declaring that
"Project Renewal will proceed
actively and energetically in the
context of the Government's new
economy measures" highlighted
the United Jewish Appeal's
National Conference, Dec. 6-8, at
the New York Hilton Hotel.
The message was delivered at a
leadership dinner Dec. 6, at which
UJA national chairman Irwin S.
Field reported that the 1980
regular campaign total to date of
$115 million represented "the
largest amount of money raised,
in the most communities, at the
earliest date since the 1974
campaign, which began im-
mediately following the Yom
Kippur War." The 1980 drive
seeks a regular campaign in-
crease of some S100 million, with
maximum additional pledges for
Project Renewal, the social
rehabilitation program designed
to rejuvenate the lives of 300,000
immigrants living in Israel's
distressed urban areas.
Buoyed by these develop-
ments, conference delegates
listened with concern the next
morning as Jewish Agency
treasurer Akiva Lewinsky
described a serious shortage in
cash receipts which, combined
with the eroding effect of near-
runaway inflation, is threatening
drastic cutbacks in many of the
Agency's human support
programs. Settlement plans in
the Galilee and Negev will be
curtailed, and the Youth Aliya
program will accept 2,000 fewer
under-priviledged children this
year unless there is a significant
quickening of cash flow, he in-

Palestinian leaders on the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
According to reliable
sources, a member of the
Egyptian negotiating team
in the autonomy talks, Am-
bassador Ezzat Abdul-
Latif, has been holding un-
official and until now
secret talks with a num-
ber of West Bank notables.
He has visited East Jerusalem
several times to meet with prom-
inent West Bank political figures
despite Egypt's official ban on
visits by their diplomats to Jeru-
salem prior to the Jan. 26, 1980
normalization date. Egyptian
sources have described these
contacts as "profitable" but
would not identify the Pales-
tinians with whom Latif talked.
U.S. SPECIAL Ambassador
Sol Linowitz, who left for
Washington, told reporters here
that he, too, would seek out
Palestinian leaders in coming
months to discuss the autonomy
scheme. Israel's chief negotiator,
Interior Minister Yosef Burg,
also promised to open an
initiative toward West Bank and

mine where our Jewish com-
munity will be in the 1980's and
how we will get there," according
to Richard Turkel. Tampa Jewish

our future, for ourselves, and for
our children.''

Eton Moreh Settlers Move to New Site
Sue Greenberger
spokesman for Premier
Menachem Begin announced that
the settlers of Elon Moreh have
agreed to leave voluntarily and
accept an alternative site offered
by the government at Kjebel
Kebir, about six miles away.
The announcement, by Begins
press aide, Shlomo Nakdimon,
indicated that a government
crisis over the forcible evacuation
of Elon Moreh has been averted.
NAKDIMON spoke to
reporters following a meeting
between Begin and Elon Moreh
settlers and their Gush Emunim
backers. There was no an-
nouncement by the Gush
Emunim who were reported to be
conferring among themselves.
Elon Moreh settlers voted never
to leave the settlement of their
own accord only a day before the

They'll Share Vacated Airfield in Sinai
Israel and Egypt have agreed in
principle to share one of the Sinai

This disclosure was made by
Joseph Maayan, director general
of the Defense Ministry to the
Knesset Economic Committee.
Electric Menorah
Glows in Washington
Chanukah in Washington is dif-
ferent this year. A towering
electric "National Chanukah
Menorah'' glows in Lafayette
Park directly opposite the White
House in the traditional nu-
merical order for eight successive
days in celebration of the
Festival of Lights.
Erection of the all-steel
menorah was completed and
successfully tested in the
presence of Lubavitcher Rabbi
Abraham Shemtov, who super-
vised the project sponsored by
the American Friends of Luba-
vitch; the menorah's designer,
Gunther Kilshiemer, a Berlin
refugee from Nazism; and a
reporter for the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency.
fabricated with gold painted
square tubing and weighing 5,000
pounds, is the nation's largest,
Shemtov said. Its 30-foot-high
base is surmounted by a triangle
of nine lights, each four feet high,
with the top of the Shamus the
centered light 36 feet above
ground. The span of the lights is
20 feet wide. Each "flame" is 20
inches high.
A special ceremony of lighting
took place Monday, the fourth
night of Chanukah, with govern-
ment and community leaders
participating. The menorah is
being turned on each evening at
dusk and glows until midnight
during the holiday.
"National Candelabra" is one of
many that Lubavitch Friends
have installed in major cities
across the country, Shemtov
said. Among them are menorahs
in front of the Plaza Hotel in
Manhattan and at the foot of the
Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, as
they have been on the past three
KILSHIEMER was overjoyed
as the lights of his design
gleamed for the first time. He
said he was in an orphanage in
Berlin when, in 1938, he was
removed to Brazil for safety.
After nine years there, he came
to Washington. Looking at his
design he said wistfully: "I did
this as a Jew. hopeful of making a
contribution to the whole world

Israel will give up in Sinai.

developed, he pointed out, at a
time whan the high cost of
carrying out Israel's peace treaty
obligations was increasing the
Jewish Agency's share of
responsibility for immigrant
ibsorption and social progress.
Leading the Tampa Jewish
Federation delegation at the
conference was Michael L.
Levine, chairman of the 1980 TJF
UJA Campaign; Gary S. Alter,
TJF executive director; Marsha
Sherman, vice chairman of the
Campaign; and Larry Davis,
Heritage Division chairman. Also
attending were Diane Levine and
Shirley Davis.
An analysis of the peace
process by former Foreign
Minister Moshe Dayan opened
the conference at a luncheon on
Friday afternoon. While
stressing the primacy of security
for Israel, Dayan expressed a
basically hopeful view about an
eventual solution to outstanding
West Bank issues which would be
acceptable to the area's Arab
population. In the peace process,
as in all major Jewish issues of
the day, he felt it was "a time to
look to the future," toward
solutions and a strengthened
Jewish presence in the world.
The Conference theme, "A
rlTime To Be Together," was
r ceremonially expressed through
awards and tributes to recently
released Jewish freedom fighters,
a Falasha liberation leader, a
century-old Jewish service
organization, and a major
American industrialist who has
actively supported the people of
Israel and UJA / federation
campaigns on their behalf.
-, The first UJA Humanitarian
t'Award was presented to Henry
Ford II at the Thursday
leadership dinner by Max M.

casion of entering its 100th year.
Humanitarian Award, Fisher
characterized Ford as a
"philanthropic, kind, charitable
humanitarian" and cited the auto
magnate's efforts to alleviate
unemployment and urban crisis
in Detroit. In his response, Ford
expressed admiration for Israel
for "permiting technology to
work in the interests of peace"
and focused on the nature of
philanthropic responsibility.
"As people concerned with
others," he told the UJA cam-
paign leaders, "part of your
responsibility will be keeping
alive the spirit of generosity, the
spirit of caring. Perhaps all of us
can draw strength from one of the
heroines of World War II .
Anne Frank died believing in the
goodness of people. What you are
doing in UJA brings us closer to
the world Anne Frank deserved
to have."
Timerman, who has resumed
his career as a journalist in Israel,
told an audience of more than
1,000 at the Avery Fisher Hall
event that he found strength to
survive torture during his im-
prisonment through his
Jewishness. At his most
despairing moment, blindfolded,
he asked one of his captors to
locate the east for him, so he
could face Jerusalem in prayers
onlv dimly remembered from
childhood. Referring to the
Conference theme, he said: "At
that moment, we were together
as we are today and as we
will be for all centuries to come."
Penson, denied painting
materials during his nine years in
Soviet prison camps, has
achieved international
recognition for his etchings and
water-colors since reaching Israel.
In appreciation of American
Jewry'8 support of his struggle
for freedom, he presented the
United Jewish Appeal with a
book of his poignant series of
etchings entitled Prison Views.
He called on American Jews to
continue their efforts "to free
Russian Jewry from spiritual
"Convocation of Solidarity" also
heard an impassioned plea by
Falasha liberation leader Baruch
Tegegne, asking for immediate
action on behalf of the Jewish
community of 28,000 in Ethiopia.
"Jewish people are dying now in
Ethiopia," he declared. "They
cannot wait years until help will
come one day. We have reliable
information that the Ethiopian
government is now ready to let
our people go to Israel. Won't
you save 28,000 Jews from sure
death? The time is now."
The Avery Fisher Hall
program also included dramatic
readings by actors Lou Jacobi
and Joseph Wiseman, and a
concert by the Soviet Emigre
Orchestra under the direction of
Lazar Gosman.

It's Time for Giving
Are the people in Cambodia really being starved
to death deliberately?
Are there Jewish families in Tampa genuinely in
need of help?
Financial help?
The answer to all of the above is yes!!!
Some people think about giving at this time of
the year because it's the time to be concerned about
"tax deductions."
Some people think about giving because in our
society this is the time of year to give something to
one another. Certainly Chanukah has become trans-
lated into that type of holiday whether we like it or
not and we would have to work awfully hard to make
it be different in our homes.
Let's work to see that our children learn that
giving to those in need is more valuable than giving
another "thing" to each other.
The Tampa Jewish Federation will accept your
contribution right now and put it to work before the
end of 1979. And the Federation agencies serve you,
too. You are reading this annoucement in one of the
services of the Federation, a community newspaper.
What type of giving will you practice this year?
There Ought to be a Law
Recently, U.S. Rep. Stephen Solarz (D., N.Y.)
introduced legislation which would make the
desecration of a house of worship, or the religious
articles in it, a federal crime punishable by a $10,000
fine, five years in jail, or both.
Although several Supreme Court decisions have
ruled against persons accused of disrupting religious
services, these were made with regard to civil
statutes and have never been applied in federal
criminal prosecutions. As a result, the U.S. Justice
Department, believing that it has no legal juris-
diction, has sidestepped church and synagogue
burnings and desecrations unless it believes that
other statutes, such as those regarding explosives,
have been violated.
A more recent survey by the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith points to the imperative need
for a federal law to punish those who desecrate in any
way, shape or form houses of worship and cemeteries.
The increased manifestations of anti-Semitism
correspond with the Justice Department's report of a
450 percent increase in racially-motivated vandalism
over a six-month period this year as measured
against all of 1978. The increased anti-Semitic in-
cidents also coincide with the resurgence of the Ku
Klux Klan, neo-Nazi and extreme right wing
organizations around the country.
Continuing economic and social tensions will
tend to exacerbate the anti-Semitic feelings of those
who are looking for a scapegoat. This is the lesson of
history. An effective counter-measure could be a law
such as the one introduced by Solarz. It is only a first
step. But it is a step that must be taken. There ought
to be a law.
THE BIG flap that the new
Woodward-Armstrong book on
the Supreme Court is making
these days urges me to consider
that there ought to be a time to
forgive, as well as to die and to do
all those other things, pleasant
and unpleasant, that the process
of living calls for.
Hannah Arendt said that "for-
giveness is the key to action and
freedom." In the sense that to
forgive releases us from the
wastefulness of short-circuited
energy spent in anger or in
dreams of revenge, and therefore
frees us to act in a more pro-
ductive way, Arendt was of
course correct.
STILL, the metaphysics of
existential theory is, by
definition, not of the empirical
world. I know that I should
forgive, but I can not. The sheer
arrogance of Richard Nixon's
abuse of former Justice Abe
Fortas, and then his sanc-
timonious one-line acceptance of
the Fortas resignation, are things

Pope Must Review Jerusalem Stand
Pope John Paul II, during his
celebrated visit to the United
States, did not issue a new call
for the internationalization of the
State of Israel's capital,
Jerusalem; but he did, in effect,
say "there ought to be a law."
This will strike many as a
crude way of putting it, but how
else can it be set forth? To use his
actual words, the Pontiff said: "I
also hope a statute that, under
international guarantees (em-
phasis added), would respect the
particular nature of Jerusalem, a
heritage to the veneration of
millions of believers of the three
great monotheistic religions
Judaism, Christianity, and
THE HOLY Fathers
statement hints at a longing to be
as bold on this vital issue as Pope
Pius XII was. That Pontiff, who
ruled from the Vatican in the
stormy years, 1939-1958, issued
two encyclicals calling for
Jerusalem's internationalization
as the "separate body" in 1948
soon after Israel to the dismay
ol tu Arab attackers and other
fes gained statehood.
Pope Paul VI, who was
elevated to the papal thr
1963. drew back a little from the
Pius demands but said it n
enough for Israel unilaterally to
guarantee free access of members
of all faiths to their Jerusalem
shrines. He wanted international
commitments of "citizenship" in
Jerusalem for Christians,
Moslems, and Jews.
He appealed for "an ap-
propriate statute with in-
ternational guarantees for the
Holy City and convenient
juridical guardianship for the
holy places."
One searches fruitlessly for
such demands during the two
decades that Jordan held the Old
City in its grasp. What one does
find in such historical quest is
that 34 of the Old City's 35
synagogues were dynamited,
that some became stables, some
chicken coops, and that
thousands of Jewish tombstones
were taken from the ancient
cemetery of the Mount of Olives,
some to be used to surface the
footpath leading to a Jordanian
army camp latrine.
IN THAT dark period, when
Jordan controlled East
Jerusalem and the West Bank.
Jews were not permitted to
approach the Western Wall, k*
alone pray there. Further demon-1
strating their contempt for
religious freedom the Jordanian
government insisted on keeping
control of Christian schools in
Jerusalem and barrred Muslims
from making traditional^
pilgrimages to Jerusalem.
This has all been set down
scores of times in the press and in
scholarly journals, but where are
those who remember? And who
now recalls that in March, Is".

'Zighty-five warm wishes of congratulations to ADA
Zimmerman on the wonderful occasion of her 86th birthday. On
Dec. 2, she was given a big birthday celebration at La Cote
Basque Restaurant. This party was hosted by Ada's daughter
and son-in-law from New York, Bernice and Jerome August, and
by her son and daughter-in-law from Tampa, Bruce and Mary
Zimmerman. In addition to having many of her friends and all of
her family from Tampa celebrate with her, there were numerous
out-of-town guests here for the big day. These included: from
Connecticut, Janet and John Roman; from Montana, Lori
Zimmerman; from Miami, Jean Seigel; and from New York,
Bert Greene (who is also a well-known author and restaurant
reviewer for Gentleman's Quarterly).
In lieu of gifts, each person who attended the party wrote a
poem to Ada about some experience they had had with her
during their lifetime. All of our love and best wishes to you on
this most happy occasion.
Saturday morning, Dec. 15, Congregation Rodeph Sholom
dedicated a beautiful new Torah, during Sabbath services. This
Torah was donated by the Linsky and LeVine families in honor
of the 80th birthday of Mrs. Eva Linsky. At the time of Eva's
birthday, a few months ago, her family and friends initiated a
fund for the purpose of purchasing a Torah in her honor.
Recently, they were able to purchase it with the aid of Rabbi
Lazar Rifkin. who went to New York for the family in order to
select just the right Torah.
To add to this special morning service, Eva's grand-
daughter, EUyne Levine, daughter of Brace and Frandne
LeVine, and her fiance Arthur Nordlinger, son of Richard and
Toby Nordlinger (of Englewood Cliff, N.J.), were called to the
Torah to be blessed on the eve of their wedding.
On Wednesday, Dec. 26, Rabbi and Mrs. Frank Sundbeim
will continue a lovely tradition of theirs when they have an open
house at their home for all of the college students and college age
students who work and who attend Congregation Schaarai
Zedek. This warm reception begins at 8 p.m. until? In the rabbi's
words, Adrianne and I consider this one of the highlights of the
year and hope you do so also."
Dec. 17-21 was an especially happy and exciting week at
the Jewish Community Center Pre-School, as each class invited
their parents to join them for a Chanukah breakfast on one oi
those days. The breakfast, which was prepared and served by
the students and their teachers, featured latkes, applesauce,
hard boiled eggs and cookies. Also, the children made the in-
vitations that were sent to their parents inviting them to this
special occasion, and they gave their parents handmade
Chanukah gifts at the breakfast. In addition, some of the older
children presented a Chanukah play at their breakfast and
holiday songs were sung by all.

Women's American ORT (Evening Chapter) is now in the
midst of its largest fund raiser of the year. For the fifth year in
succession, ORT has annually operated a gift-wrapping stand in
front of Wilsons (on Hillsborough Avenue) for approximately
three weeks before Christmas. Not only is this event extremely
profitable for ORT, it is well received in the community, and a
fun way to meet new people. The money made from this project
goes to support MOT (Maintenance ORT Training), the first
overseas project established by ORT in the 1940's. MOT is
extremely important as it provides the high level technical
training which Israel desperately needs in order to koep pace
with the rest of the world. We wish this organization its most
successful year in operating this project.
The Sabbath Service tonight at Congregation Kol Ami will
be a very special one. It will feature the second annual Religious
School Service. The children of the Hebrew School will lead the
congregation in prayer. Assisting them will be their teachers,

that there has been discussion in
some Soviet circles on the matter,
that Soviet officials detain
persons who have state secrets
just as any other country would
do, and that there was no truth
that the prisoners were jailed for
taking part in the emigration
movement as Mrs. Hoffman
had suggested to him.
She said Medunov also had
replied that the prisoners had
been guilty of criminal activities,
that trials were held according to
state law, that refusals were not
forever and that cases would be
reviewed and that prisoners
eventually would get out.
Medunov also replied that
some persons made "the
mistake'' of coupling human
rights with state rights and that
"we do not want interference in
our internal affairs," a
statement Mrs. Hoffman said he
made very emphatically.

Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
MIKETZ Joseph had been in prison for two full years when
he was called out to explain Pharaoh's dreams.
dPharaoh had dreamed of seven fat cows being swallowed
by seven lean cows, and of seven fat stalks of grain swallowed by
seven lean ones. Joseph explained that seven years of plenty
would be followed by seven years of hunger. Joseph then
suggested that Pharaoh appoint a wise man to store away food
during the good years ahead.
Pharaoh was pleased with this plan and appointed Joseph
ruler over all his people.
Joseph was 30 years old when he became Pharaoh's prime
minister. He managed well and when the famine came, people
from every country thronged to Egypt to buy food, and among
them Joseph's own brothers. He recognized them at once, but
they did not know him, and he ordered them to bring their
youngest brother Benjamin on their next journey to Egypt.
This they did, and Joseph had a silver goblet secretly
placed in Benjamin's grain sack. "The man who has stolen my
goblet," said Joseph, "will by my slave!" When the goblet was
discoverd, Joseph insisted that Benjamin remain with him as his
servant. (Genesis 41:1 44:17

Daf Yomi
Chevra Kaddisha
The most important function of the Chevra (Brotherhood)
is the preparation of the body for burial in accordance with the
customs and traditions of Israel.
The shroud is made of fine white linen without any hems or
knots. It consists of three garments: shirt, pants, and an
overgarment with a girdle. White stockings should be put on the
legs and a white cap on the head. These shrouds of linen were
instituted during the Talmudic period when burials became
expensive for the poor. It emphasized the equality of all human
beings, rich and poor alike. (Moed Katun 27b. Yoreh Deah
When the Shroud (Tachrichim) is ready, the body is
carefully washed and (leaned. A woman is attended to only by
women. No idle conversation is permitted in the presence of the
AFTER THE body has been thoroughly washed with warn
water, it is placed in a standing position and nine kabbim (24
quarts) of water are poured over the corpse. This last operation
performed by the Chevra constitutes the real purification
(Taharah). (KiUur Shulchan Aruch 198.21.
The male dead are also wrapped in a Tallit whose fringa
(Trittit) are made invalid, symbolically indicating that ths
earthy requirements are no longer incumbent upon him. In the
case of a female, an additional overgarment is place on her
shoulders. (Semachot 12).
The rabbinic ruling during the past centuries have strongly
prohibited post-mortem examinations as a desecration of the
dead. However, allowances have been made if there was a
reasonable hope that it would contribute to saving the life of
another patient at hand. When a autopsy has taken place, all
parts removed from the body must be buried.
Burial may not be delayed except for the honor of the dead,
such as awaiting the arrival of very close relatives.
ALL MIRRORS should be coverd in the House of Mour-
ning. Many reasons are given for this. Since a Minyan (quorum
of 10 people) usually pray in the house, prayer is not permitted
in front of a mirror which must therefore, be coverd. Another
reason given is: "Vanity of Vanities All Is Vanity," mirrors are
symbols of vanity, and therefore, they should be coverd in the
face of the ultimate end of all beauty.
The burial is the interment of the body in earth. After the
burial, if there are mourners present, the Psalm 49 is recited. If
orphans are present at the graveside, the following special
passages are recited in their Kaddish.
" Yit-Ga-Dal, extolled and hallowed be thy name of God in
the world which He is to create anew, and to revive the dead and
raise them to everlasting life. Then the worship of idols will be
eradicated, and the true heavenly worship restored to its
dignity. Oh, may this happen in the lifetime of the whole house
of Israel speedily, without delay, and say ye. Amen.''
Those present at the funeral form themselves into two rows,
between which the mourners pass, they recite the following:
"May the Lord comfort you together with all the mourners
of Zion and Jerusalem."
WHEN RETURNING from a burial, it is customary for a
few people to pluck a few blades of grass and throw them over
their shoulders while reciting:
"He remembereth that we are dust. Even as this grass
grows, dies and grows again, even so the Dead shall be
resurrected again."
Rabbi Elazer said, "All who are humble in this life shall be
resurrected, for it is written, "Awake And Sing Ye That Dwell
In The Dust." (Isaiah 26:19). It does not state, that lie in the
dust, but that dwell in the dust, we infer this to mean, he who
dwelled in the dust (was humble) during life shall be resurrected.
All leaving the cemetery must wash their bands. The hands
should not be dried with a towel or any other cloth. (Yoreh Deah
THE LAWS concerning our dead could fill many, many
books. When in doubt, ask your rabbi. My purpose was to write
only about some of the duties of the Chevra Kaddisha.
"May the Lord destroy death forever. He will wipe away
tears from all faces, and He will remove from all the earth the
rebuke of His people; for God hath spoken it. He who maketn
peace in His high places for us and for all Israel; and say
And a Happy Chanukah!

When JAPs Told They Don't 'Look Jewish'
P inJ
n foil
Jewish Telegraphic Agency
\ Many Jewish students at
ston University have
r epted as authentic the
iereotype of the "Jewish
nerican Princess" and its
kage with such
ogatory characteriza-
fens as spoiled," "loud,"
bd "overdressed," ac-
rding to the director of
adent activities at the
|iiversity's Hillel unit.
I Nancy GelUeiler also asserted,
l an interview with Ruth Atkin
Genesis 2, the independent
Itwish student publication, that
main concern about the
eteotype and its derogatory
nnotations was that she
Regarded it as anti-Semitic and
irmful to both Jews and non-
lews. Ma. Atkin, a recent
Brandeis University graduate,
iras listed as a new member of the
jenesis 2 editorial board.
The Hillel official said that
the main way" individuals pick
the stereotype is by how a
udent looks. She said that
men students who dress well
e "immediately and negatively
liged" on the campus, adding
it "the stereotype flourishes
here there is a large con-
ntration of Jews and very little
between social groups."
SHE REPORTED she could
>t understand why dressing well
other features associated with
e stereotype were characterized
ks uniquely Jewish." She
asserted that the victim "is not
called a princess; she is not called
in American Princess; she is
called a Jewish American
Princess." She declared the
phenomenon was so pervasive at
the university that any woman
there "who sufficiently resembles
any attribute of the stereotype
will receive the label," even if she
is not Jewish.
She reported she had found
reactions of both anger and
intimidation among Jewish
students over the charac-
terization, adding that Jewish
women students "do a lot of
things to avoid being character-
ized as a JAP. It becomes an
image to react against." She
reported that many of the women
students "consider it a com-
pliment if they are told Oh, you
don't look like a JAP'; or You
don't look Jewish." Many
respond "Thank you.' "
Hut some students consider
the stereotype unobjectionable,
manifesting that attitude by
wearing T-shirts with the legend,
"1 am a Jewish American
Princess." The interview report
did not indicate whether some of
. those T-shirt wearers intended to
>y indicate publicly their repudia-
tion of the negative elements of
the characterization.
IN DISCUSSING the matter
with Jewish students, Ms.
Geltzeiler added, she has learned
that many accept the stereotype
in its negative terms, male
students saying: "I won't go
out with a JAP," and women
students declaring "Don't
associate me with the JAPs."
But what they are really saying,
she declared, is that "part ot my
people have been labeled ac-
ceptable and some non-
acceptable. I am afraid to be
associated with the 'bad' part
and my acceptance in society is
threatened by these 'labelled'
She said this was "part" of a
more general phenomenon of
embarrassment and avoidance by
some Jews of other Jews who are
too 'visible.' It is the anti-
Semitism in society which casts
Jews as rich or to blame for
societal ills and keeps Jews
fearful of what other people think
of them an understandable
feeling considering our history
that makes Jews so un-
comfortable about any Jew who
appears to resemble the stero-
Ms. Geltzeiler traced the
source of the stereotype to the
success of Jewish immigrants in
emulating the values of the
majority, "to be like the
dominant Protestant culture, to
succeed, to be independent, to
make money, to rise out of the
poor working class status and to
be able to live in a comfortable
WHEN JEWS accepted and
managed to emulate these values,
she added. "non-Jewish society
made success and its visibility a
negative thing for Jews." She
declared that the JAP stereotype
evolved in the post-World War II
"The main way a man showed
his success" as a provider "was
by how his wife looked and how
his home looked. In the general
society, to be a 'lady of leisure'
was not anything negative; it
was something very positive,"
Ms. Geltzeiler declared.
She said it was the acquired
"external behaviors and ap-
pearances of the daughters of
these homes" which is what is
now being labelled. She said "the
questions we must ask is why
upwardly mobile Jews are singled
out and why the behaviors"
attract such criticism.
AS AN approach to coping
with the problem, Ms. Geltzeiler
said the stereotype "embodies
complex prejudices about being
Jewish" and that for Jewish
students; "the first step is to
become aware of our feelings
about being Jewish in a non-
Jewish society and of the sen-
sitivities we develop toward other
Jews in reaction to how we think
non-Jews view us as a group."

and non-Jews when they lapse

religiously, and be able to knowl-

Background Report
Israel Reverses Shaka Decision; He's Back on Job
tary tribunal hearing his
case. The Mayor was
promptly released from
Ramie jail where he had
been confined for the past
month and allowed to
return to his office in
Nablus with a request that
he "stick to municipal
affairs" in the future.
The mayors of 23 other towns
on the West Bank and Gaza Strip
who resigned last month in
protest against Shaka's arrest
have returned to work. Their
collective resignations were never
officially accepted by the
Military Government.
announced by Brig. Gen. Arye
Mcn-Kliezer, the commander of
the West Bank, who had
originally signed the deportation
order and would have been
responsible for carrying it out.
He said the special military
appeals committee hearing
Shaka's case concluded that
the evidence on which the
deportation order was based was,
indeed, valid.
But "in light of the overall
circumstances," the committee
recommended reconsideration,
Ben-Eliezer said. He said that
after consultations with his
"superiors" he decided to revoke
the deportation order and
reinstate Shaka as mayor.
The decision is expected to
ease tensions on the West Bank,
and in Israel as well, where public
opinion was sharply divided over
the wisdom of deporting the pro-
Palestine Liberation
Organization mayor.
SHAKA WAS removed from
office by the Military Govern-
ment for remarks he made in a
private conversation with Maj.
Gen. Danny Matt, then coor-
dinator of the administered
territories, in which he allegedly
justified the March. 1978
terrorist raid on Israel's coastal
highway in which 34 civilians
were killed. Shaka insisted that
his remarks leaked to the press
were deliberately distorted.
He said that he had never
justified the killling of inbnocent
people but had merely warned the
Israeli official that terrorism
would continue as lone as the
Palestinian problem remained
A transcript of his con-
versation tended to confirm
Shaka's version of it. But
militarv officials said that
Shaka's long record of anti-Israel
incitement, warranted his ex-
THE CASE was brought to
the Supreme Court last month,
but the justices declined to hear
it until all other legal channels
were exhausted. At that point, it
as referred to the special
military committee with the
p-oviso that Shaka could rein-
state his appeal to the high court
if the decision went against him.
Ben-Eliezer told reporters that
he hoped the decision would
"contribute to mutual un-
derstanding in this peace process
in which we are engaged." He
was referring to the autonomy
negotiations between Israel,
Egypt and the United States.
Fears had been expressed in
Israel and abroad that the
deportation of Shaka would have
an adverse effect on the
autonomy talks.
The Shaka case in fact became
on international matter when the
United Nations Security Council,
in a unanimous statement of
consensus, urged Israel to release
the Nablus mayor.
welcomed by the West Bank
mayors and by former Premier
Yitzhak Rabin. Rabin told
reporters he was sorry it had not
come sooner. The left-wing Sheli
faction and other opposition
parties also hailed the military
committee's decision. But Gush
Emunim sources were bitter.
They said that they now might
reconsidwer their agreement to
evacuate Elon Moreh.

It is true that there has been a
considerable amount of Black

then. But that, too, has been by
Black choice: the sudden Black

colonialism and imperialism and
Zionism and that whole fict;ve

Black priorities are now changed.
But Black Americans must
quickly come to recognize that if
they identify with these revo-
