TIMERMAN, in his recently
published book, "Prisoner With-
out a Name, Cell Without a
Number," documented the
growth of Nazism and anti-Semi-
tism in Argentine prisons and in
the country as a whole, and the
massive violations of human
rights which cut across religious
and ethnic lines. Timerman was
imprisoned, tortured and held in
jail for several years without any
charges brought against him. He
was eventually expelled and now
resides in Israel.
The meeting of the committee
was also brought up to date on
the terrorist attack on a syna-
gogue in Vienna last Saturday
during which two people
killed and 18 wounded.
Manor, the Israeli delegate,
asked the committee to officially
condemn the terrorist act.
The International Council of
Jewish Women's delegate de-
nounced the act and said that the
violence in Vienna was another
example of "the false and per-
nicious equation between Zion-
ism and racism." She was
referring to the infamous 1975
United Nations Security Council
resolution which condemned
Zionism as a form of racism. The
delegate also urged the com-
mittee to condemn Saturday's
Argentina Hits Anti-Semitism
'resident Roberto Viola of

Spiritual leader of the Park

The rabbi, who led a delegation

IViola in Buenos Aires bast week,
I said that following the meeting
IViola issued a communique
Istating that he will use his power
to combat any form of religious
discrimination and safeguard the
rights of individuals.
SCHNEIER, who is also chair-
man of the World Jewish
Congress-American Section, said
he told Viola that "At a time of
social and economic upheaval,
and increased worldwide anti-
semitic manifestations, it is im-
portant that leaders speak clearly
and loudly against this scourge."
The delegation consisted of
Rev. Herbert Anderson, Senior
Minister, Brick Presbyterian
Church in New York, Rt. Rev.
Peter Rosazza, Roman Catholic-
Auxiliary Bishop of Hartford,
Conn., and Marc Schneier, senior
rabbinic student at Yeshiva Uni-
versity in New York.
The delegation received a com-
mitment from the Minister of
Education, Carlos Burundarene,
that the President's statement
will be disseminated throughout
the school system. Viola and the
Minister of Interior assured the
delegation that the NBC-TV

on Argentine television no later
than January, 1982.
pointed out, in its discussions
with Argentine officials, the need
for legislation as a deterrent
against the desecration of houses
of worship, religious institutions
and cemeteries. In its discussions
with the President and members
of his Cabinet, the delegation
discussed the fate of the 857 pris-
oners now being held under Na-
tional Executive Power and of
those who have disappeared
during the years 1975-1979,
Schneier reported.
Rosh Hashana Message
Rabbi Leonard Rosenthal
I Congregation Kol Ami President,
Tampa Rabbinical Association
"God put Abraham to the test.
I He said to him, "Abraham," and
I A* answered, "Here I am."
I (Genesis 22:1 Torah Reading
\for Rosh Hashana)
One of a leader's tasks is to put
his followers to the test. He has
an obligation to challenge their
most deeply held convictions, to
make them examine their lives
and to spur them on to loftier
I goals.
But a leader also has the
I responsibility of making sure
Ithat these goals are reached. In
[this he puts his constituency to a
[severer test. He asks them to
Igive of themselves emotionally,
physically and financially.
When God tested Abraham, he
lunmediately replied "Here I am,"
[Abraham didn't ask God what
IHe wanted of him, or how much
time and money it would take,
but instead answered that he was
unconditionally ready to carry
out His will.
Our sages teach us that
Abraham was tested not once,
but ten times. Ten times he
stood and said, "Here I am." I
am ready to do whatever is re-
quired of me.
These tests did not weaken
Abraham but strenghtened him.
Being put on the spot, being
made to go that extra mile, in-
stilled in him a self confidence
and sense of accomplishment
which he had never had before.
Some members of Tampa's
communtiy can be compared to
Abraham. When they are asked
to volunteer or participate, they
immediately step forward and
say, "Here I am! I am ready to
help, I will do whatever needs to
be done. Our goals are vital and
must be achieved. I do not con-
sider it an obligation but rather
an honor."
But there are others who con-
tinually protest and say, "I can't
help. I have limited time, limited
money and there is only so much
I can do. My schedule is full and
my job is demanding. There
surely must be others who can do
the work. My moral support you
have, but if you need anything
else, please look elsewhere."
God put Abraham to the
supreme test. He asked him for
the life of his son, and yet
Abraham was ready to do God's
will without guestion or protest.
Abraham passed the test. His
positive response was all that
God really required, not the
shedding of human blood.
We are put to lesser tests. Not
as much is asked of us, but our
work is just as vital.
In the coming year when we
are called upon to help our

A New Years Message
From Hope Barnett
Dear Friends:
As the New Year approaches, we as individuals and as
people take the time to evaluate and reflect on our past years. It
is a time when Jewish families all over the world share similar
hopes for good health, peace and happiness.
As we pray in our temples and synagogues all over the
world, we create a stronger bond among all Jews. We are all
linked together by our history and our future. Our history, be-
ing one of great struggle and turmoil, has brought us to this day
with a strong commitment for the survival of the Jewish people.
Recently, it was very evident in our local community that
we do care about each other at home and abroad. The Tampa
Jewish Federation Emergency Campaign brought together
individuals from all of the agencies and Federation. The united
goal created a strong sense of cooperation that was the
beginning of a first real community -wide effort. There are many
people who live in Tampa who are willing to help to make the
quality of Jewish life in Tampa special.
We are fortunate to have people in Tampa who will work
hard and who care about our community. In this holiday spirit
of friendship and hope, let us recognize we are all in this effort
together. We share a common past, we share common dreams.
I^et us work together to fulfill our dreams as a community to
make all of our lives more meaningful.
A Happy and Healthy Rosh Hashanah to all of you.
Fondest personal regards.
Tampa Jewish Federation
Rosh Hashanah Message
From Council of
Jewish Federations
President Council of
Jewish Federations
NEW YORK, Each year our
High Holy Days are a time for
solemn reflection, self-searching
and prayer. We turn to the time-
less riches of our Jewish heritage
to judge ourselves as individuals
and as a community.
The challenges facing us in the
year 5742 intensify our need for
guidance and renewal. The needs
of our society's most vulnerable
members the aging, the poor,
the infirm, children continue
to grow. Yet the level of public
funding for programs of human
compassion and social responsi-
bility may be reduced.
Abroad, a new wave of
terrorist attacks against Israel
has brought more bloodshed and
the loss of innocent lives. The
flow of Jewish immigration from
the Soviet Union has declined
under the impact of repressive
policies. Anti-Semitism seems to
be gaining in many countries.
Yet the message of our Days of
Awe is not discouragement, but
hope. We emerge with a renewed
sense of our Jewish commitment
and faith in the strength of our
people. Our local Jewish com-
munities in the United States and
Canada have never been
stronger, more cohensive, surer
in purpose. Our unity as a
national community has never
been more of a reality. Our
support for Israel and Jews
around the world has never been
more forceful.
We go forth from these days of
reflection with a new vision of the
ideals to which we are committed.
Working together, we will make
5742 a landmark year in the his-
tory of the Jewish people.
Federation Campaign Reaches
New High Sets Community Record
The Tampa Jewish Federation-United Jewish Appeal
Campaign will reach the $900,000 mark according to Federation
officials. This is the largest amount ever realized in the city of
While the 1981Campaign fell short of its goal of $1,050,000 it
is still a very sizable increase over the 9730,000 raised in 1980.
In announcing these figures to the Federation Budget Com-
mittee, Mike Levine, Chairman, reported that the Budget and
Allocation Committee will have approximately $390,000 to allo-
cate for local and national agencies. In 1980, a total of $345,000
was distributed to local and national agencies.
A record $405,000 representing 45 percent of the gross
campaign receipts will be allocated for United Jewish Appeal as
determined by a pre-campaign formula set by the Federation
Board of Directors.
"While we have reached new heights in the annual cam-
paign, we will again face the difficult task of meeting the neces-
sary increases for our growing and expanding local service,"
Levine stated.

Our New Year's Priorities
Shofar Must be Our Clarion Call to United Action
The sound of the New Year as heard in|
the ancient call of the shofar Monday night
will commit us to greater efforts in our own
.cause as we pray for inclusion in the Book of
Life. Having expressed our penitential
feelings during the midnight Selichot service
last Saturday, we can do no less than commit
ourselves on Rosh Hashanah to better ways
in 5742 than those we confessed to as lacking
in our penitential prayers a week ago.
But Rosh Hashanah must also commit
us to pledges of service in the cause of the
community and of Jews throughout the
world, as well. This is no generalized con-
clusion from a specific religious Jewish
reality. For historically, the shofar even in
ancient time served a much wider role than
the one to which we reserve it on the occasion
of the High Holy Days today.
IN ANCIENT times, the sound of the
shofar alerted the Jewish community to
danger. It aroused and warned. It was used in
battle, as well as in prayer. In this sense, the
shofar today must commit us to action during
the year ahead no less than to spiritual
reflection in the synagogue on the High Holy
As a social, political and economic com-
munity in America, we must make our wishes
known, loud and clear, so far as local,
national and international issues are con-
cerned. In short, we must be prepared to
exercise more pressure, not less; more stern
demand, not a lower profile than before, as for
example when the growing fearful among us
break ranks to join the critics of the Jewish
community for their support of Israel without
Or as we criticize our government's in-
creasing tendency to intrude on the privacy of
our nation's citizens through wire-tapping. Or
as we say "no" to those who would happily
violate the long-standing American tradition
of separation of church and state. Or as we re-
mind our country's leaders that sexual
privacy and family planning are precisely that
private that these things are no one
else's business other than that of the individ-
uals involved. Or as we declare that social
needs are as keen as our military needs, or
what in the end will our military forces be de-
fending in America that is genuinely Ameri-
can without a free and contented citizenry?
INTERNATIONALLY, the issues con-
fronting diaspora Jewry and Israelis are ent-
wined, yet different. The people of Israel face
the enormous task of making certain that
their enemies are prevented from destroying
them. And as we commit ourselves to join
ranks with the people of Israel in this monu-
mental cause, we must also be aware that
there are enemies facing us outside of Israel
just as surely.
We, for example, face the forces of assi-
milation and intermarriage that can destroy
us by attrition in the same way that Israel can
be destroyed by planes, tanks and bombs.
Israel, which is isolated on the interna-
tional arena, is limited to conducting
diplomatic campaigns in its own behalf. It
can not go beyond the boundary lines of this
isolation. And so, the task of presenting
Israel's cause must increasingly fall upon us

Reagan Greets Jewish Community
In Jewish place of worship the
world over, the stirring call of the
ram's horn, the shofar. will be
heard symbolizing as it has for
centuries the observance of Rosh
Hashanah. On this most solemn
occasion, Nancy and I express
our warmest greetings to the
Jewish people and joint with you
in your prayers for the New Year.
The High Holy Days are a time
for introspection, atonement, and
renewal a time when those of
the Jewish Faith pause to reflect
upon the year which has passed
and pray for the year which lies
ahead We join with you in the
President Reagan
spirit of this holiday, for it is only
by seeking the truth within our
own hearts and acknowledging
the sacred purpose of human life
that we may, in the words of your
tradition, "be inscribed and
sealed in the book of life."
You have our every good wish
that this new year, 5742. will ad-
vance your cherished hopes that
human understanding and peace
take the place of terrorism and
violence, that the needs of the
hungry and the poor be satisfied
meaningfully throughout the
world, and that there be progress
toward the prophetic ideal that
"national shall not lift up sword
against nation, neither shall they
learn war anymore."

The Jewish Flo'tutiah'of Tampa
Rabbi Sundheims Journey Into Egypt
Rabbi Frank Sundheim con-
tinues his tale of a Rabbi in
Egyptin thia Part I1 fnis tale f
his summer sabbatical.
June 20, noon Tutenkamen
(King Tut) was a mediocre king,
at best. He made no conquests,
and therefore had few resources
of gold and jewelry for his tomb.
He died at 19, with little to show
for his efforts.
At this moment as we spend
four hours in the Cairo Museum,
you would never know it. In
Toronto, two years ago, I was
hassled into a screaming mob,
guided by a tape, hoping during a
one-hour showing to see 40 small
nieces on tour. At this moment I
am seeing thousand* of King Tut
items; all of them crowded intc
his small tomb (small because
they weren't prepared for the
death of the 19-year old king). I
will never understand how it all
fit into that tomb. Obviously, it
We also saw the items of the
tomb of the only other king
whose tomb was found intact. It
was maybe 500 times smaller in
content than that of King Tut.
(He was even more mediocre than
King Tut.)
El Seyed says that the tombs
of Tutmose III or Raamses II
must have contained 1,000 times
the items of King Tut's tomb.
The tombs of Mernepthah and
Ramses VI which we saw yester-
day were 1,000 times larger than
King Tut's tomb (it took 12 steps
to get down to King Tut's, 89
steps to Memepthah's).
I can't believe what I am see-
ing; and know that it was
nothing in comparison to the
major leagues. Those grave rob-
bers obviously had e good thing
going for them. If I 3aw nothing
else, this King Tut exhibit is
worth the entire trip to Egypt.
Cairo "Ashkelon is destroy-
ed. Canaan is conquered, Israel is
no more, and it's seed (children?)
is destroyed."
This is found on a tablet of
Mernepthah which I am looking
at right now. Is he referring to
the Exodus? Or to the further
hostilities between Israel, and
Egypt after Moses' time? Here is
a clear reference to Israel and its
subjugation by Egypt and this is
the only Egyptian reference to
Israel around this time.
In a corner of the museum, I
again experience that transform-
ation in time linking myself,
Egypt, and Israel. It is a magic
"There's nothing new under
the sun." Nephertiti (wife of
Akhnaton) was a universally
acknowledged beauty. Yet, when
the revolt back to the god Amon
took place in Tutenkamen's time,
they had to do a hatchet job on
Nephertiti and Akhnaton. Here
Akhnaton looks like a sissy, Nep-
hertiti's "swan neck" is
grotesque and their children look
retarded (we know Tut was nor-
mal looking).
When the conterrevolution
comes, you must show the sins of
the revolutionists. Here's a bust
of Akhnaton kissing his son on
the lips homosexuality too?
And Joe McCarthy thought he
was inventing something new!
And in the afternoon, a visit to
the famed Ben Ezra Synagogue,
11 centuries old. And, what a sad
sight! I hope my pictures turn
out. There is a synagogue here
in Cairo there are about 160 Jews
services were held there this
morning, but we were physically
exhausted and slept late.
Here, an old man (the rabbi) is
the Sh a mm os,book seller, guide,
and general factotum. It's a mu-
seum now, although the sign out
side says "Closed temporarily by
the Cairo Jewish Community for
reparations." To see the colored
slide display sheet on the Biroah
while behind it the shammos
opens the Aron Hakodesh -
breaks the heart.
Once the Jewish community of
Egypt was strong and proud.
Today a relic of a dying past
or is it dead already?
Yitgadal Vyitkadash Sh'may
The discussion in the bus this
afternoon turned to politics and
religion. Our guide, Dr. El Seyed
is a Suni Moslem, a strong sup-
porter of Sadat, and a universal-
ist. He would fit in very well at
our local universities. He scorns
the Shi-ites (Khomeini) both for
their tactics and for their strange
mixture of politics and religion.
Again he spoke about the power
of the clergy with great con-
We talked about Egypt. I am
no longer surprised by seeing
poverty and luxury exist side by
side. This is apparent here. The
people on the street seem friendly
and hopeful. By the construction
one sees that Sadat is really
trying to help the people. (If he
can prevent the population
explosion he might just succeed).
We ended the day with a
sound-light show at the Giza
pyramids. The text was corny,
and we'll learn the real story
when we make our visit there
tomorrow, but it was so beauti-
ful! My first look at the Sphinx,
in lights, with Venus setting
behind it, sitting in the open air
on a lovely night, pinching
myself and saying "Am I really
It has been quite a day, of so
many things, I don't think I'll
ever forget this Shabbat when I
did not go to Shul!
Sunday, June 21 And now,
to the Giza Pyramids, by day!
They are as stark and imposing
as they look by picture. For the
passengers not riding camels in
front of the pyramid, our bus
driver lowered his TV set behind
his seat, and we can all see the
soccer match. I now sit, on the
bus, with the largest of the pyra-
mids directly in front of me,
that's Using, and the Sphinx
silently presiding over it all. Still
asking the unsolvable riddles
that may be Egypt herself, a fit-
ting conclusion to this strange,
distant land with its warm, ac-
cessible people.
The sphinx with the head of
a man and the body of a lion
representing the intellect and the
strength of man perhaps this
is the story of Egypt itself
strong and unbelievable skill
sometimes used to bless, at other
times use to imprison.

1:40 p.m. and I don't believe
today! Abu Simbel was nothing
compared with this. Let'3 forget
the fights with the travel agent
over size and facilities of the
We started off in two buses
from the hotel. In our bus, about
'/i hour before Ismalia, a man got
sick, suspected heart attack. We
pulled into the rest stop and the
bus continued to the hospital.
Gratefully the man was OK and
we continued to the Suez Canal.

baggage. Passengers and bag-
gage go on a barge across the
Canal Re-load the baggage onto

trouble! So, here we are (1:60
p.m.) in the desert, not knowing
if we'll get to El Arish, and if we
do, if well get there before
closing of the border.
Well, we chose this way of
traveling from Egypt tp Israel,**
an "adventure "

El Arish.' I was sitting the last
row of the bus on a terribly
bumpy road. One bump literally
threw me out of my seat and I hit
my head on the overhang of the
back window. Fortunately, I am
not badly hurt.
It is now 5:30 p.m. We are sit-
ting at a hotel (of sorts) on the
Mediterranean, at El Arish. Just
as we had feared, the border was
closed at 4p.m. and we arrived at
4:30 p.m. They won't let us
through until 9 a.m. tomorrow.
We are told that for two straight
days the Israelis didn't let people
through late, and we are unfor-
tunately the first group to pass
this way since then, and so, here
we are. (Well find out the truth
Frantic calls are being made,
and I am sure, to no avail, unless
there are miracles.
June 23, No Miracles! 10:30
a.m. We are on a beautiful bus
waiting to leave... on the Israeli
side of the border.
The sleeping was not exactly
elegant last night but dinner
wasn't too bad, and everyone is
punchy now. We are considering
reunions of the survivors of Abu
Simbel and El Arish.
As to differing stories: The
fuide on this side saw us yester-
ay. He says that the Egyptian
guard didn't let us through yes-
terday because the Israelis had
told him (The Egyptian) that
they wouldn't accept us that late.
Danny, our Israeli guide, says
this is a lie because the Israeli
side is open 24 hours a day. He
say8 the Egyptians are just lazy.
He was quite angry as he told us
he had been waiting there for us
for 24 hours.
Israel, 11:20 a.m. The Israe-
lis do have a heart. They knew
everything that had happened.
We just went through a fast
passport control and their famed
inspection of luggage was so
cursory, they didn't even take the
luggage off the bus.
Adrianne says her nausea that
she woke us with went away
when she crossed the border. She
cried as we crossed into Israeli

To add insult to injury on
Monday at 3:30 p.m. we arrived
at the King David Hotel, only to
find that despite our prepaid six-
night voucher, our room had been
sold out from under us and we
had been transferred to the Plaza.
Adrianne became hysterical and
my screaming could be heard all
over the hotel (four other people
had the same greeting). It turns
out that the Plaza is a super
hotel, and we are very happy here
(at the Plaza).
Oh yes, we received a phone
call from the King David yester-
day to invite Adrianne and me to
be their guests for dinner (to
make amends). We will partake
of their hospitality of Sunday
night. There are many first on
this trip, and one will occur Sun-

ing to Rabbi Herschel
Rabbi Schacter, chairman of
the JWB Commission on Jewish
Chaplaincy, noted, "Since there
are only 44 full-time Jewish mili-
tary chaplains on active duty

religious leaders to conduct Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur serv-
ices at every base where Jews

said, "will take place in Europe at

In accordance with the tradi-

the JWB Commission on Jewish
Chaplaincy provides JWB
calendars 1981-82, inspirational
literature, Selihot (penitential
prayers) cassettes, and, as
needed, ram's horns tshofarim),
prayer shawls (taliot) and skull
caps (hipotl, according to Rabbi
Joseph B. Messing, director of
JWB's Armed Forces and Veter-
ans Services and the Commission
on Jewish Chaplaincy.
Traditionally, the first of the
services will occur on the island
of Guam in the South Pacific,
just east of the International
Date Line and since services
follow the sun, Pearl Harbor in
Hawaii will be the last base to

ing the end of the High Holy
IN ALASKA, armed forces
personnel will observe the High
Holy Days with the assistance of
Chaplain Alan M. Klein, Jewish
chaplain at Elmendorf Air Force
Base near Anchorage.
Personnel at Ft. Wainwright
and Eielson Air Force Base will
hold services at Ft. Wainwright
with Rabbi Klein conducting.
The Jewish civilian community
at Fairbanks will be invited to
take part.
Personnel at other bases will
attempt to travel to either Fair-
banks or Anchorage, where the
military will be the guests of the
civilian community. Often this
will not be possible. In such cases
JWB and the Chaplaincy will
provide some supplies to outlying
personnel at bases across the
entire state. Some lonely out-
posts are above the Arctic Circle.
Others are closer to Siberia than
the "Lower 48." They represent
air force, army, navy, marine and
coast guard units.
Capt. Joel Messing, son of the
JWB's Rabbi Messing, serves as
lay leader at Ft. Wainwright.
j The full-time and part-time
' Jewish chaplains covering the
1 VA hospitals have made plans to
provide religious services for all
hospitalized veterans.
Ambulatory patients will be pro-
vided the opportunity to attend
services in the hospital chapels
and bedridden patients will re-
ceive special coverage by the
'Break-the-Fast" suppers for v
military personnel and VA
patients arranged by the chap-
lains will mark the conclusion of
the Yom Kippur.
ALL OF the U.S. services en-
courage and foster liberal leave
and pass policies for Jewish per-
sonnel, and in many instances,
service men and women who can-
not get home for the holidays are
invited to share the warm "home
hospitality" of Jewish families in
the locale where they are
stationed. Frequently, single men
and women are guests of Jewish
military families on their bases.
Local Jewish communal orga-
nizations cooperate fully in holi-
day planning for service person-
nel with the Jewish chaplains, the
JWB Chaplaincy Commission
and JWB's Women's Organiza-
tions' Services, according to
Rabbi Messing.
The JWB is the U.S. gover-
nment-accredited agency that
provides religious, morale and
welfare services to Jews in the
armed forces, their families and
hospitalized veterans on behalf of
the American Jewish community.

Ten New Personalities
HAIFA There were many
names in the news this past year,
but between one Rosh Hashana
and the next new personalities
emerged on the scene. In accord-
ance with our annual custom we
present herewith, in alphabetical
order, the new names which made
headlines in Israel this year.
Aharon AbuhaUeira, Minister
of Religion in the former Govern-
ment, was narrowly cleared by .
the courts on charges of bribery,
seceded from the National
Religious Party and formed his
own party, Tami, frankly based
on sectarian appeal to the Se-
phardim. He was named a Cabi-
net member of the new Govern-
ment but now faces a new trial on
charges of graft and corruption
allegedly committed when he was
Mayor of Ramla
Yoram Aridor, Begin s contro-
versial Minister of Finance, who
appears to have arrested the in-'
flationary spiral in Israel by in-
troduction of highly unorthodox
economic policies. The situation
seems to be improving, but many
economists warn that the
reaction, when it comes, may be
Mr. Chibotero, a fictional un-
seen character promoted in a
series of television commercials
designed to encourage saving of
electricity. The public took an
immediate liking to the program,
as projected through the image of
the heimeshe, previously
unknown actress, Miriam Foux.
Energy consumption did decline,
it was said.
Gen. Rafael Ekan (Ran) took
his poet several years ago as mil-
itary Chief of Staff with a reputa-
tion for extreme taciturnity. This
year he opened up and was the
center of several controversies
because of his frank expression of
opinions on defense matters

which, critics said, had beat be
left to the political leadership.
Justice Moahe Etiionl was
chairman of the national Election
Commission but his name really
made headlines in connection
with the Etzioni Committee on
teachers' problems, which he
headed. The committee report
recommended broad concessions
to the teachers, and led to a long
and bitter teachers' strike.
Shlomo Glkkstein, Israel's No.
One tennis star, brought glory to
his country by his achievements
on foreign courts, but more than
anything else he symbolized the
explosive emergence of tennis as
a highly popular sport now
sweeping Israel.
Philip Habib, President Reag-
an's special emissary to the Mid-
dle East, "pulled a Kissinger''
with his shuttling between Israel
and the Arab states. He achieved
1 no miracles and no break-
throughs, but his presence helped
avert what might well have be-
come a much more serious situa-
Yosef Mendelevich arrived in
Israel after 10 years in a Soviet
jail. He was this year's symbol of
the many other Prisoners of Zion
who are still held and punished in
the Soviet Union because they
want to get out and rejoin their
Hersl Shafir, Inspector-
General of the Police Depart-
ment, was fired only a year after
being appointed to that job. The
Minister of the Interior charged
that Shafir was high-handed and
refused to accept ministerial
control; critics claimed he was
sacked because he was pressing
criminal investigations into
matters close to the Minister's
Avraham Shapiro, prominent
industrialist (head of Carmel
Carpets) entered politics as head
of the Agudat Israel list and
drove a hard bargain with Begin
to swing his four Knesset seats to
support of the Likud coalition;
without them Begin would have

munity can make Jewish life a
little bit better. Although the
Foundation has only been in ex-
istence since January, 1980, a
number of people have already
helped to secure the future
quality of Jewish life.
There was the woman who re-
cently established a Philan-
thropic Fund where the income to
be earned will provide annual
scholarships for American stu-
dents to study in Israel and to
fund other humanitarian
programs. Another Fund was set
up to provide annual JCC Camp
scholarships for deserving Jewish
children. Still another Fund was
established with no designated
purpose and the income
generated by it will be used in ac-
cordance with the charitable
needs in the community or accu-
mulated for important capital
There are many charitable
projects both inside and outside
our Jewish Community that
today may only be a dream, but
with your Endowment Gift can
become a reality tomorrow. Of
course, the local Endowment
Committee is ever mindful of pre-
serving and building principal so
that the financial reservoir can
continue to rise and be available
for Capital needs in the Com-
munity and to meet community
So, as you approach the holi-
day season and you are asked to
reflect, think of what the quality
of Jewish life can become with an
Endowment Gift to the Founda-
tion for the benefit of your Fed-
eration's Endowment Program.
Think of the elderly, our youth,
your Synagogue or Temple,
Capital projects, the continuing
work of the Federation and the
countless other religious, social,
educational and other Charitable
needs in the Community all of
which can be benefited by estab-
lishing an Endowment Gift. In
this New Year take it upon your-
self to help to make life a little bit
better for those around you and
for those who will come after you.
On behalf of the TOP Jewish
Foundation and your Fed-
eration's Endowment Committee
have a Happy, Healthy, Pros-
perous New Year.
The election of an Iraqi diplomat,
Ismat Kittani, as President of the
36th session of the General
Assembly was sharply
denounced by Israel. Kittani,
Iraq's Undersecretary for
Foreign Affairs, was selected by
lottery after two secret ballots
failed to produce the required
majority for any one of the three
candidates for the office.
nan naio my?
In a statement issued im-
mediately after the election,
Yehuda Blum, Israel's
Ambassador to the United
Nations,declared: "It is a mea-
sure of the regretable decline of
the United Nations' standards
that the UN General Assembly
should have elected as its Presi-
dent the representative of a
country which, as a result of mul-
tiple and ongoing acts of aggres-
sion, is in a state of war with a
number of countries in the
Middle East." Iraq is actively
engaged in war with Iran and re-
mains officially in a state of war
with Israel.
Blum added: "It is incon-
ceivable that the League of
Nations would have rewarded
Italian aggression against
Ethiopia by the election of the
representative of Mussolini as
president of its assembly in 1936
and now, strangely enough, the
aggression of Saddam Hussein
(President of Iraq) is being re-
warded with the election of his
representative to the presidency
of the General Assembly of the
United Nations."
Kittani, a Kurd, said in his
inaugural speech immediately af-
ter the election that the General
Assembly must implement its re-
solutions of past years, including
those on the rights of the Pales-
tinian people to self-determina-
tion and statehood.

Kreisky Trying to Convince Bonn to Recognize PLO
BONN (JTA) Chancellor Bruno Kreisky of Aus-
tria is trying to convince the West German government
that it should recognize the Palestine Liberation Organi-

peared on state television to explain his friendly attitude
toward the PLO and his belief that PLO Chief Yasir Araf-
at has shown "moderation."
According to Kreisky, former West German Chancellor

The film for the evening is
"Young Frankeaateia." a Mel

old Frankenstein horror flicks
"Some parents may have some
reservations about their child's
ability to appreciate the humor
however, moat people who are
familiar with the film enjoy it and
use it to explain fantasy and
borrow' films to their children."
Wolfe continued that the film's
greatest appeal seems to be to
teenagers and fans of television

????? Jewish Question Box ?????
UTA Feature/
Question: What is meant by
the religious requirement of
Answer: The Bible (Numbers.
Chapter 15) commands that when
one is preparing the dough for
baking bread one is to take off a
certain amount and give it to the
Kohen (priest). If one does not
take off this amount when the
bread is still in the form of dough
he is still obligated to take it off
even after the dough becomes
fully baked bread. While in the
days of the Temple the portion
was given to the Kohen. Nowa-
days that portion is taken off and
Qaeetion: Why is a Jew
commanded to do this?
Answer: There are a number
of reasons for this requirement.
First, the bread is considered to
be bleaeed through this perfor-
mance iChinuch) The dough and
the bread that is eventually made
from it thus assumes a spiritual
character besides its physical es-
sence. The Jew is thus continual-
ly injecting a spiritual value into
the material of life. Second, this
was originally done to help su-
stain the Kohen who is engaged
with the service in the Temple
and who has no land inheritance
The Talmud lYrushalmi.Challah
HI I states that before one eats
bread he has to perform 10 coro-
| mandments and the separation of
the portion called Challah is one
of them. One must therefore ful-
fill his spiritual obligations before
enjoying the material benefits of
the universe. In can al-
so be said that the practice of
Challah indicates that no person
can lay claim to the material
benefits of life for himself exclu-
sively. He must always share the
material gains of life with others.
Taking off some of his dough and
giving it to the Kohen is one of
the wavs of sharing with others.
Question: Why do we burn
this portion today?

Answer: For one thing, there
is no Temple in Jerusalem today
and thus the priests (Kohanim)
do not serve there. For another
thing, one is not absolutely sure
of the current status of one who
claims to be a Kohen. Still, there
it an obligation to offer and sacri-
fice and thus the piece of dough is

recently announced
-"new $100,000 project has
[undertaken by the JWV.
"JWV Forest Recreation
j" will be located near the
linking Tel Aviv to Jerusa-
fThe area, known as Sha'ar
Ly. (gate to the valley), is
tne Judian Hills meet the
It was at Sha'ar
by that intense fighting
' during the 1948 War of
Jendence in an attempt to
[control of the major road
kg to Jerusalem. This marks
The -W JWV P"** f<* the
Jewish National Fund.
The proposed Recreation and
lounst area includes children's
play structures, picnic tables
and benches in a tree shaded
area. Such recreation areas are
sorely needed by the families
residing in Israel, due to the
extreme day to day tensions thev
must face.
In addition, B'nai B'rith has
announced the launching of the
fifth section of its' Martyr's
Forest in Israel. TheB'nai B'rith
"Forest of Peace" in the Galilee,
will commemorate the signing of
the peace treaty between Israel
and Egypt. It will symbolize
B'nai B'rith hope that peace will
eventually reign throughout the
entire Middle East.
The Forest will be planted near
Shefer, a settlement in the Upper
Galilee, situated along the Akko
Safed road and offering a breath-
taking panorama of Lake Kinner-
et and the Mediterranean. It is
easily accessible on a well-
traveled road and a short drive
from Moledet and Rarnat Zvi
B'nai B'rith settlement
developed on Jewish National
Fund land.
To date, the Jewish War Vet-
erans have contributed over
$500,000 and B'nai B'rith mem-
bers have contributed over
$1,000,000 to their various JNF
projects in Israel. The Jewish
National Fund (Keren Kayemeth
Leisrael) is the land development
authority, and since its inception,
80 years ago, has been responsi-
ble for reclaiming over 260,000
acres of land, building 2,500 km
of roads, helping to establish 640
settlements and planting more
than 150 million trees, which
serve as the lifeblood of Israel.

Veterans Post, B'nai B'rith

Fund Regional Office in Tampa.
