The war between Iraq
and Iran has overshadowed
an equally dangerous
development in the Persian
Gulf the Iraqi pursuit of
nuclear weapons capability.
For President Saddam
Hussein, the ruthless
leader of Iraq, both of these
represent carefully-planned
steps toward the at-
tainment of Iraq's
hegemony in *he Gulf and
Hussein's ambition to
emerge as the head of the
most powerful Arab nation.
That Iraq has gotten bogged
down in a border war it started
with Iran does not interfere with
its aim to become a nuclear
power. True, the Gulf war has
temporarily interrupted
Hussein's nuclear arms develop-
ment program. But Israeli
analysts, who are closely watch-
ing the build-up of Iraq's military
and nuclear potential, believe
Iraq can become a nuclear power
and a threat to the Jewish
state by the mid-1980's.
That one of the most unstable
Middle East regimes and a leader
of the Arab rejectionists could
emerge as a nuclear threat is a
chilling scenario, with France and
other Western countries playing
major roles.

up for the development of a

In disclosing the return of the
money plus interest of $41,721,
the'Jesuit university said it did

littee in cooperation with
Lodge B'nai B'rith had an
crowd at the Jewish
lunity Center last week.
thur Teitelbaum, Director of
[Miami office of the Anti-
Imation League and
supervisor of ADL for 12 South-
eastern states was the guest
speaker, Dr. Carl Luxenberg, one
ot the ADL representatives in
The "Temperature of anti-
semitism in America Today".
Teitelbaum reported was such
that "Every week anti-semitic
acts take place." He stated that
this was true of civilized
traditional liberal western
countries as well as the Soviet
Union which has a governmental
basic policy of anti-semitism.
"In the United States, in 1979
there were 129 anti-semitic
episodes. In 1980, there were 377
documented incidents," Teitel-
baum said. He went on to
explain that this was a very
conservative estimate because
there had to be a distinction
made between what is obviously
anti-semitic and what is inferred.
Therefore, the real number of
episodes with anti-Semitism
behind them may be much larger.
Anti-semitism is surfacing
with coat and tie KKK leaders,
ultraconservative evangelics, the
New Right and many sophis-
ticated operations. "The political
left and the political right agree
on anti-Semitism, said
Teitelbaum. He also pointed out
that today the FBI can't monitor
activities of extremist groups
until a crime was committed.

Another arena of modern anti-
Semitism is the United Nations.
Who would believe that in 1&80
over (iO percent of the agenda of
the UN was spent passing anti-
Israel, anti-Semitic resolutions,"
said Teitelbaum. "This is
symptomatic or world opinion
concerning Jews today."
Teitelbaum touched on the'
Christian Voice, Religious Round
Table. Moral Majority. Christian
Broadcasting Network, Christian
Yellow Pages, KKK Paramilitary
activity, Christian Funda-
nentalism as area to watch.
"Jewish survival depends on
strengthened democracy," said
eitelbaum. "We must all do our
share through involvement in the
Jewish community."
Teitelbaum urged the audience
f be aware of what to do with
"ididents which they see." First
of all, never assume that someone
else will report it." he said. The
Places to notify are the Tampa

Mendelevich Critical of Celebrations
"We will never forget
you not even for one
day," Prime Minister
Menachem Begin told
Yosef Mendelevich when
they met at the Prime
Minister's office here.
Begin recalled that he, too,
had spent some time in the
Soviet "Gulag" camps.
Mendelevich, the last of the
imprisoned Jewish defendants in
the 1970 Leningrad hijack trial to
be released, seemed unconvinced.
He told television viewers that he
felt insufficient interest was
shown in Prisoners of Zion while
they languish in Soviet camps.
"My impression is that Israelis
are fantastic in organizing
receptions when a Prisoner of
Zion arrives here, but they take
little interest while the prisoner is
still languishing in captivity,"
Mendelevich, who arrived in
Israel last week, told the TV
interviewer in near faultless
Hebrew. He said that he and his
fellow-prisoners rarely felt that
effective public action was taken
on his behalf.
HE CALLED for public action
on behalf of the two non-Jewish
participants in the Leningrad
escape attempt, Yuri Federov
and Aleksei Murzhenko. who, he
said are still detained "in the
most harsh conditions." He also
mentioned Ida Nudel, Vladimir
Slepak. Iosif Begun. Victor
Firailovsky and Anatoly
Sharansky .
Brailovsky. a leading activist
of the Soviet Jewish emigration
movement and editor of the
journal, "Jews in the USSR,"
had been arrested last November
in Moscow, Mendelevich noted.
Did you do anything about it?"
he challenged the TV interviewer
and the viewers. He said
"Nathan" Sharansky was
loved by all his fellow-prisoners
for his "tzadik-like" qualities and
that this love triggered even
greater hostility on the part of
the prison authorities.
Mendelevich's release,
however, has sparked hope in
some Soviet aliya circles in Israel
that the freeing of Nudel from
Siberian exile might also now be
lose at hand.
A DAY after his arrival from
Lhe USSR, Mendelevich called on
'every Jew in the United States
to do whatever is in his power" to
help in the campaign to free other
Prisoners of Zion.
At a press conference at Allon
Shvut. the West Bank home of
his sister, Rivka Dori, Mendel-
evich also called the Jews the
world over to step up the public
Israeli Teens in Tampa
Following the success of last
year's Israeli high school
delegation visit to Tampa, the
Israeli Ministry of Foreign
Affairs and Ministry of
Education have decided to
sponsor a similar visit this year
March 8-15.
The Tampa Jewish Com-
munity Center will again be co-
sponsors of the two students who
visit. As last year, the parti-
cipants were chosen on the basis
of academic achievement, par-
ticipation in high school papers,
leadership activities and desire to
learn more about their peer
groups in the United States.
Tzvia Shperber, 16, from Eilat
and Adi Elkeles, 16, from Ramat
Can, will spend next week in
Tampa visiting schools, ap-
pearing on radio and TV shows
and trying to tell as many people
as possible about Israel. During
their stay they will be the house-
guests of families with teenagers.
They are bringing movies and
slides and will talk to
Hillsborough County classes in
political science, social studies
and history. Their activities will
be geared to establishing a
dialogue and fostering a better
understanding between two
societies whose basic tenets are
democratic action and social
struggle. The days of quiet diplo-
macy were over he said. He
recited from the Passover
Hagaddah that God had taken
the Jews from Egypt "with a
strong hand and firm arm."
Mendelevich said his last
hunger strike in the prison camp
had lasted 55 days and was trig-
gered by the confiscation of a
book from which he was teaching
a fellow Jewish prisoner Hebrew
and Jewish history.
HE SAID he was often
punished though not physically
beaten, because he insisted on
observing the Sabbath and other
religious rites.

themselves as super-patriots.
Said Lilienthal:

said was modelled on the lines of

The Rev. Michael Walsh,

board's 10-member executive
committee had unanimously
approved return of the money.
IRA SILVERMAN, director of

"delighted" with Georgetown's

said. "To keep this money would

'Super Sunday' Tops Goal!
Over 50 Volunteers Raise $21,916 in Tel-a-Thon
Super Sunday was super as th
Tampa Jewish Federatior
surpassed its goal of $20,000 in
the one day telathon conducted
trom the library of the Jewish
Community Center.
Art Skop, Super Sunday chair-
man, reported "Over 50 volun-
teers working in two hour shifts
recorded pladges totalling
$21,916. It was a super day!"
These same donors last year
pledged a total of $15,712 giving
the day an overall 39 percent
increase according to a
Federation spokesman.
The volunteers worked from
phones installed in the JCC
library sponsored by the Pan

speaking to each shift of
volunteers prior to their manning
the phones for two hours, em-
phasized the importance of good
phone procedures. Represen-

els fears and myths teen-
often entertain about their

ilTTELSOHN is clearly
msed in premarital sex, but he
,-s not condemn it
ergorically. Facing the issue
nl on, lie brings in sociologist
dith Tales who discusses some
ihe positive aspects of
hnarital sex. The book offers
Idelines and tools for the
reader to use in handling con-
temporary social pressures.
This open approach is not
followed in books by two other
prominent Jewish thinkers now
on the market. Robert Gordis'
Love and Sex A Modern
Jewish Perspective, and Maurice
Lamm's The Jewish Way in Love
and Marriage (note the definite
Gordis is a biblical scholar and
leader in the Conservative
movement. Most interesting in
his book are his discussions of the
evolution of Jewish sex ethics,
marriage and divorce, birth
control and abortion, homo-
sexuality, and premarital sex. He
recognizes that times are chang-
ing again: young people mature,
marry, and set their careers later
than our ancestors did. He advo-
cates a combination of lenient
laws and strict social mores
and it is here that he sometimes
loses his audience.
Gordis is writing for the adult
reader who is seeking a modern
perspective, yet he resorts to
certain contemporary bugaboos
to make his points: that pre-
marital sex detracts from
marriage, endangers the institu-
tion of marriage, etc. (One look at
the statistics on marriage and
premarital sex in Gittelsohn's
l)ook would prove the opposite.)
Jewish community should not
censure those who are sexually
active before marriage, but rather
be sympathetic and help them
return "to the true path" a
path that few adults in their
twenties or thirties see as
Although Orthodox writer and
Rabbi Maurice Lamm does not
take up a windy debate on these
issues in his book [The Jewish
Way in Love and Marriage), he
effectively depicts the beauty of
the traditional Jewish sex ethic:
sex within a sanctified relation-
ship (marriage) as a joining, a
spiritualization of a life ex-
perience. Lamm does not belabor
the point, but argues that the
standards laid down in the name
of God and society are important
and ought to be heeded.
Outside marriage, he main-
tains, no rules exist for proper
sexual relationships as far as
Jewish tradition is concerned. On
interfaith marriages and on
homosexuality, Lamm also
presents a traditional, albeit
sensitive discussion. On some
points, he sticks to tradition in
the face of change even where
change is permitted by Jewish
law. For example, he considers
the double ring wedding ceremon-
ey an artificial obfuscation of the
traditional legal significance of
the marriage act: the acquisition
of the wife by the husband an
idea he tries to soften by explain-
ing that women were set aside,
sanctified, like the vessels of the
Holy Temple.
LAMM's contribution with
this book, as with his The Jewish
Way in Death and Mourning, is
his collection of traditional
reasons given for the wedding
ceremony and all its trappings,
making accessible to the English
reader centuries of Jewish
wisdom on the matter.
Those interested in studying
the sources themselves, as a step
in reaching their own decisions,
will welcome the newly-published
B'Ttelem Elohim In God's
Image, by Bernard Novick (New
York: United Synagogue Youth,
$5). The book, which is written
for teen-agers, deals with making
Jewish decisions about one's
body. In addition to sexuality,
the book covers dress and general
appearance, and external sub-
stances (smoking, drinking,
The underlying question about
these and similar books is: Do
they speak to any young people
who do not already have a
religious commitment to Judaism
in other words, to the majority
of Jewish students and young
adults? Given our society's
pervasive secularism, it is dif-
ficult to believe that this major-
ity perceives sexuality as a
religious concern, or that it
deems religious discussions of
sex personally relevant.
THIS SECULAR influence,
that restricts "religion" to a
formal, separate sphere of ac-
tivity, can be noted even among
Orthodox students. One gains
the impression that many ob-
servant males, in particular, do
not place premarital sex on a par
with, say, profaning the Sabbath.
(It is possible that what is at
work here, aside from the secular
influence, is the Orthodox ten-
dency to underemphasize the
sanctity of social obligations
those between "man and his
fellow," bein adorn l'haven
relative to the importance at-
tached to correct ritual ob-
In attempting to relate tra-
ditional sex values to a post-tra-
ditional society, religious leaders
are severely handicapped.
Traditional society operated with
one central concept that infused
its own sex ethic, that lacks
>otency today, and that was pin-
x>inted in a recent book that

Baghdad a more convenient route

only to the fact that King Hus-

Iraq on a low flame, while enjoy-
ing the economic benefits accru-
ing from the improved relation-
ship, that the Iraq-Jordanian
axis has not become an im-
mediate danger to Israel.
It is clear to military analysts
in Israel that the moment the
Arabs have a nuclear weapon, the
strategic picture will take a dra-
matic change. In view of Iraq's1
rapid nuclear growth, the threat
of a "Moslem bomb," however,
has never seemed so imminent as
it is now. The Moslem country at
the most advanced stage of a-
tomic development is Pakistan.
What concerns Israeli observers
are that country's increasing,
clandestine ties with Libya.

Israeli officials have often
stated that Israel would not be
the first Middle Eastern nation to
introduce nuclear weapons in the
area. Yet when radical countries
like Iraq and Libya, whose
professed aim is the annihilation
of Israel, emerge as nuclear
threats, the concept of deterrence
takes on a different meaning.
Israel clearly cannot afford to ab-
sorb a nuclear strike. For this
reason, there is a view in military
circles that the speedy progress
of the Arab countries toward ob-
taining nuclear weapons should
be a kind of "casus belli."
Critics argue that Israel has
refused to sign the Nuclear Non-
Proliferation Treaty, and
therefore, has weakened its case
against the spread of nuclear
materials and know-how. Israelis
counter that arrangements such
as the Franco-Iraqi deal render
such accords worthless insofar as
the Middle East is concerned.

eagerly sought after.

Karin. who has worked in Europe, says that to be
professional the Israeli girls need to see the way
models work overseas.
"I'm afraid the young models in Israel don't work
hard enough. Beauty is not enough. To be a good
model you need manners and intelligence."
Karin with split-second timing can change her
looks as she tilts her head, rearranges her posture or
executes an imperceptible turn. Like an actress, she
summons memories and fantasies that evoke a

KARIN, born in Germany, spent the war years
in Sweden and came to Israel in 1948.
"I grew up in Holon (just outside Tel Aviv), and
I'm the only member of my family who has stayed
here. The others have all gone to the States."
As a teenager, Karin was very skinny. Which
bothered her somewhat, particularly when a family
friend who owned a dress house wanter her to be a
part-time model.
"I thought being a model meant having big
breasts, so I got my mother to buy me a bra. and I
stuffed it with cotton wool. The designer im-
mediately saw what I had done. He laughed and told
me that the flatter I was, the better it was for
showing off the clothes."
WHEN SHE was a young model. Karin bought
many clothes. "It was like being let loose in a
chocolate factory. Now I'm more sensible and buy
few things.
On stage we often have to wear uncomfortable
clothes, so in my private life. I love comfort. I wear a
lot of Avi Tenser's suede trousers and his overalls.

Jerry Melitz is one of the most tasteful designers -
his clothes are soft and graceful. Perfection."

If Phase Two involved

Jews discover their past, Phase
Three involved smuggling the
secret works of a handful of
Jewish sages still living and
working in their Communist hell
out of the country for the sake of
ihe storehouse of all our sacred
religious treasures.
IT WAS in 1965, two years
before Rabbi Bronstein's final
trip to the Soviet Union, that
Isaac Krasilschzikov, known as
the Gaon of Poltawa, or the
Poltawa Rebbe, sent word
through Moscow's Chief Rabbi
Levin that he wanted Rabbi
Bronstein to visit him at his
bedside where he lay ill in a
Moscow hospital.
Poltawa has an ancient and
glorious history. Peter the Great
defeated Charles XII of Sweden
there in 1709, thus effectively
destroying Sweden as a modern
military power from then on. As a
principle Ukrainian city, it was
the center of a major Jewish
community, which boasted many
synagogues even up until 1970,
when the Soviets finally closed
down the last of them.
Poltawa was the home of D.B.
Borochov. Itzhak Ben-Zvi, the
second President of Israel, came
from Poltawa. And then there
was the Poltawa Gaon himself.
Somehow, the Gaon had
managed to survive the German
invasion of Russia in 1941. He
had been a brilliant student at
the Yeshiva of Mir. In 1926, he
published the first volume of his
commentary on the Maimonides
Code (Teuunah).
RECALLS Rabbi Bronstein:
"I sat at his bedside. After a
while, he pulled out a manuscript
from under his pillow. It was the
second volume of his work on the
Maimonides Code." Referring to
the first volume that appeared in
1926, he observed, "Do you
realize that it was the last Torah
sefer to be published in the Soviet
Union? Thirty-five years had
passed in between."
Within two weeks, Rabbi
Bronstein had safely smuggled
the second volume out of the
Soviet Union into Vienna.
Shortly thereafter, it came to the
United States.
The Poltawa Gaon died just
one day after Rabbi Bronstein
visited him. But Rabbi Bronstein
got more than the second volume
of his work on the Rambam. The
Gaon lived just long enough to
tell him of how, having
miraculously survived the
German invasion of World War
II, and living in a Moscow garret
not far from the Kremlin since
1945, he had managed to com-
Red Witchhunt?

Let a few essential facts be
recalled especially for the
guidance of younger citizens of
this nation conceived in
revolution and cherishing the
freedoms secured by the Bill of
Rights: that in the mid-19408,
some 35 major "loyalty investig-
ations" were conducted by
Congress; that along the way
every registered Democrat was
charged with responsibility for
the unimpeded growth of the
Communist conspiracy in the
U.S.;" that Dean Acheson,
Secretary of State, was accused
in the course of Congressional
witch-hunting of "being on
Stalin's payroll;" and that not
one of the hundreds of Americans
branded by Joe McCarthy as
State Department subversives
was found guilty after full in-
vestigation or trial.
The anti-Communist ut-
terances and action of the mid-
20th Century were otten
pathological. Reasonable men
agree with Harry Truman who
concluded that the House Com-
mittee on Un-American
Activities was "the most un-
American thing in America."
We have better ways of
keeping our nation secure than
by indulging in Congressional
headline hunting and warfare
against innocent and often
distinguished men and women.
17 Torahs
Are Stolen
total of 17 Torahs of an estimated
value of 9186,000 have been
stolen from synagogues in
various parts of Brooklyn since

plete and revise his double
commentary on the Palestinian
Talmud, popularly known as the
Talmud Yerushalmi
OVER THE 20-year period of
its gestation, as the Gaon's
manuscripts were completed and
accumulated, they became more
and more difficult to hide from
the authorities. In almost the last
of his life's words, the Gaon told
Rabbi Bronstein of the where-
abouts of his daughter, and that
she would be able to help him re-
trieve them.
Says Rabbi Bronstein, holding
a manuscript copy of one of the
volumes open on his lap, which
fairly sings of the Poltawa
Gaon's singleminded dedication,
of the tears of Jewish travail even
in a world of Israel reborn: "It
was 1966, the year of my eighth
trip to Russia. The Poltawa Gaon
was dead, and now I found his
daughter. She refused to see me."
After Rabbi Bronstein's run-in
with the KGB in 1967, which
resulted in his sentencing to 10
years on charges of smuggling
illegal literature, 10 years for
organizing aliyah to Israel, and
five years for performing cir-
cumcisions without a license, he
moved the focus of his effort to
Al Tidom.
Now persona non grata, he
could make no more trips on his
own. And so Al Tidom sent 16
emissaries after that to talk to
the Poltawa Gaon's daughter,
who remained as adamant and as
fearful as she was with Rabbi

manuscripts and where they

out to be a gigantic 20-volume
effort resulting in the Talmud
Today, with the editorial
assistance of a collegium of
renowned Bnei Brak scholars, the
20 volumes are on their way
toward complete publication. Al
Tidom ("do not remain silent")
and Mutzal Me'Esh ("rescued
from the fire") these are the
key words of a great publishing
venture begun with the heroic
work of Rabbi Bronstein and
assisted today in the U.S. by
such spiritual leaders as Rabbi
Rubin Dobin, also of Miami
Beach, who dedicates himself to
the further dissemination of Al

he will go to the Middle
East at a "reasonably

Israeli Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir concluded
at a half-hour meeting with
President Reagan at the
White House.
"I clearly am anxious to go" to
the area to "continue the momen-
tum on the peace process and
conclude the kinds of consulta-
tions which started here" with
Shamir's visit, Haig said. He and
Shamir met with the press im-
mediately after the meeting with
Shamir told reporters that in
his talk with the President he
presented "the most essential
and most vital problems" for
Israel and its relations with the
U.S. and predicted that "the
results will be very fruitful."
and Haig, the meeting with
Reagan was attended by White
House Chief of Staff James
Raker; Richard Allen, the Presi-
dent's National Security
Adviser; the U.S. Ambassador to
Israel, Samuel Lewis; the Israeli
Ambassador to the U.S.,
Ephraim Kvron; and Chanan
Bar-On, deputy director general
for North America in the Israeli
Foregin Ministry.
When Shamir was asked for
specific information on U.S.
foreign aid for Israel in the
coming fiscal year and U.S.-
Israeli co-production of
manufactures, he replied, "We
didn't discuss details of-
cooperation of the defense
establishments of the U.S. and
Israel." Shamir observed,
however, that "in principle, this
cooperation will be very effi-
cient." He said "The U.S. is
aware of our needs."

Haig was questioned about the
: l>ossibility of Jordan joining the
x'ace talks. He replied, "This
nvolves a consultative process
vith the parties concerned and is
lot a made-in-America solution.
This is a matter for the parties."
Haig added. "We know where
the obstacles lie with respect to
the ongoing autonomy talks with
a view to having the talks pro-
ceed and succeed. This will be
dealt with promptly and early on,
and I anticipate the process
wont be long in resumption."
Haig denied that the U.S. em-
phasis on the Middle East talks
had been diminished. He referred
to "the strategic realities of the
Middle East."
"THESE," he said, "reinforce

Jewish Gay Support Group
Providing a place for Jewish
gay men and lesbian women to
meet in a atmosphere other than
thai provided by the bar scene is
the concern of someone who has
moved to Tampa from Boston.
Mark Solomon, explaining that
he was instrumental in starting
such a group in the Boston area,
said. "We have to provide a
social setting for these people to
meet. There is a protests nt
group, Metropolitan Community
Church, and a Catholic group.
Dignity, and we need more to
have a Jewish atmosphere where
Jewish gays can meet."
Solomon has spoken with
rabbis and social workers in the
area. They confirm that there is
no organization for Jewish gays
and such a program would meet a
need in Tampa.
A social group is what Solo-
mon has in mind. And then the
group could decide whether or
not it wanted to have services.
"We just have to have a setting
for Jewish homosexuals to meet
besides the bar," he said. He was
also quite emphatic about not
wanting to start a congregation

Rrailovsky, brother of Dr. Viktor Brailovsky,
Jewish refusenik scientist, who was arrested in

The American Jewish Committee, together
with the Mexican American Legal Defense and
Educational Fund, has filed a friend-of-the-court
brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth
Circuit in a California suit that accuse the U.S.
Immigration and Naturalization Service of
violating the equal protection guarantees of the
U.S. Constitution.

to uncover illegal aliens, has conducted factory
raids during which its agents have singled out
individuals for questioning solely on the basis of
racial and ethnic stereotypes. The brief cites
depositions by a number of INS agents who
candidly admitted that their decisions to detain
and question persons during a raid were based
solely on such factors as dark complexion,
Spanish accent, Mexican garb, nervousness, and
avoidance of eye contact.
