Hands Off
West Bank
WASHINGTON-(JTA)-President Reagan has
warned Israel that it would be a serious mistake to annex
the West Bank and asserted that if Israel did so it "would
be nullifying" the Camp David peace process. Reagan
made his remarks last week in reply to questions on the
NBC-TV "White Paper," a nationally televised review of
his Administration's first year in office.
deputy spokesman Alan Romberg denied reports from
Israel that Secretary of State Alexander Haig would play
a major role in the autonomy talks between Israel and
Egypt. Replying to questions, Romberg said, "I have
nothing to suggest that a decision has been taken in any
sense on a special negotiator at this point, much less that
he (Haig) would be the individual."

I and Catholics were work-
ing together in the first steps to
examine the errors and evils of
the past, and through such hon-
est self-awareness, to try to build
bridges of confidence.
The events of December, 1961
have cast a terrible shadow on all
these efforts. No one can forecast
whether, or when, or how they
may be able to continue. One can
only pray that the agony of Po-
land will not see again, for the
miniscule remnants of Polish
Jewry, a renewal of old prejudices
as harmful and indeed grotesque
as the renaissance of hope had
been beneficial and for those
like myself who witnessed it at
first hand inspiring.
On my two recant visits to Po-
land, I set off by car from War-
saw in search of the Jewish towns
and villages of the great days of
Polish Jewry. My own work wss
to try to trace the moment of de-
struction of each of these com-
munities, for ah atlas of the
Holocaust on which I have been
working for several years.
But where does one start?
There were more than 16,000
towns, villages and hamlets in
which Jews Uved, and had lived
for several centuries: and hun-
dreds in which Jews were a
majority of the inhabitants.
Again and again when I was in
Poland I heard the phrase: "This
was once a Jewish village."
Incredibly, although almost all
the Jews were murdered, or
driven out, wherever one looks
there are reminders of the Jewish
presence. Many of these re-
minders can evoke only sorrow.
But others give rise to thoughts
of the once vibrant life of Polish

Director, U8F
Hillel Foundation
Simon Wiesenthal is director of
the Documentation Center in
Vienna, Austria whose purpose is
to document the crimes com-
mitted by individual Nazis dur-
ing WWII and to see that these
criminals are brought to justice.
This is Mr. Wiesenthal'a life
work. He has helped make known
the facts and identify the where-
abouts of 1,000's of such people
and has seen them tried in courts
throughout the world. While con-
ventional crime units have often
ceased dealing with these
criminals, Wiesenthal's con-
tinued research and investigation
has helped to apprehend them
and to identify the fascist dicta-
tors that are often involved in
helping them hide. He is the
author of a number of books in-
cluding The Murderers Among
Us and The Sunflower.
While Wiesenthal's appearance
is a major event in any com-
munity in the United States, it is
particularly appropriate in this
community when the symbols of
. N aziam and fascism seam to con-
tinually raise their ugry head.
The need to speak out and to
bring mass murderers to justice
is clear, the need for education re-
garding the symbols which we
have seen on our campus are im-
Wiesenthal lectures on his ex-
periences in tracking down and
bringing to trial Nazi war
criminals and his motivation for
making this his life's work. The
topic of his lecture is: Murderers
Among Us: the consequences of
the Holocaust.
Wiesenthal will speak Jan. 21,
at 8 p.m. at the University Gym.
He is being sponsored by the
University Lecture Series, B'nai
B'rith Hillel Foundation Jewish
Student Center and with the
cooperation and support of the
Jewish Student Union.
As per university policy, tic-
kets for students are free but in
order to help defray coats, we will
be asking others for a $5 donation
for each ticket.
Vatican Hot Under Collar Over Golan
ROME (JTA) The two official organs of the
n its radio station and the newspaper, Osser-
% Romano sharply criticized Israel of annexing

Union were focused on events in Poland." The broad-

'accused Israel of introducing "a new factor of
irbance and tension in the Middle East situation."
OSSERVATORE ROMANO noted: "From the very
side which most expresses the desire to safeguard and ful-
fill the Camp David process, an element is added which
cannot help but be in the best of circumstances a
disturbance and hindrance" of that process, "not to

Mrs. Roger Mock (Sharon),
President of the Jewish Com-
munity Center, will be guest
speaker at the Tampa Jewish
Federation Women's Division
Board of Directors meeting
January 15.
Franci Rudolph, President of
the Women's Division, stated,
"As one of my innovations to the
Board this year, I have asked the
various recipient agencies of the
Tampa Jewish Federation to re-
view their services to the com-
munity. As leaders of our com-
munity, it is our responsibility to
be familiar with its on-going ac-
tivities and future goals. We need
to be up-to-date representatives
and know what the community's
strengths and shortcomings are
so we can make helpful sugges-
tions. This month, we have in-
vited Sharon to tell us what is
going on at the Jewish Com-
munity Center, news of the new
north-end pre-school, some of its
programming for the upcoming
months, and JCC future plans."
Mock became president of the
Center this past June, succeeding
Howard Greenberg. Greenberg
was proceeded by Sharon Mock's
husband, Roger Mock, making
this family the first double presi-
dency in Tampa.
Sharon, for many years, has
been involved in Center and

If you answered yes to any of
the above questions, the Jewish
Community Center has a new
program with you in mind! Under
the direction of Jerome Criatina,
the JCC Physical Education De-
partment is pleased to introduce
the "Healthy Back Class."
Beginning Tuesday, January
19, the class will meet every
Tuesday and Thursday from
5:30-6:16 p.m. for 10 weeks.
The program is designed to be
one which each person can, and
should, stay with for life. Al-
though the class meets twice
weekly, participants are en-
couraged to practice their exer-
cises at least five days per week.
Pre- and post-session flexibil-
ity tests will be conducted to
measure improvements made
during the course.
The main objective of the
Healthy Back Class is to teach
lower back pain sufferers the cor-
rect exercises needed to help
alleviate the problem. Proper lift-
ing techniques and posture will
be stressed.
Even though the exercises con-
sist of extremely light physical
work, any individual with serious
medical problems (heart,
vascular, etc) is urged to consult
with their personal physician be-
fore taking part in the class.
The 10 week program begins
January 19 at 5:30 p.m. Cost is
$20 for JCC members, $27 for
non-members. For more informa-
tion, contact Danny Thro at 872-

the Healthy Back Class at the

California GOP Lawman Condemns Israel
Rep. Paul McCloskey (R, Calif.)
condemned Israel's annexation of
the Golan Heights as an "aggres-
sive and imperialistic action" and
even urged Congress to reject the
S2.2 billion in foreign aid Israel is
due to receive in 1962-83 unless
the action is rescinded.
"Until Congress is willing to
stand up to Israel, every time
that we step back and deliver
them F-l6s, or accept the
bombing of downtown Beirut, we
will accept whatever they want to
do," McCloskey said at a press
conference at his office here.
CALLING THE Israeli action
a "mockery of Camp David," the
Congressman compared various
actions by Israel to Vietnam
where, he said, step by step, the
U.S. was led into war. He said he
feared that Israel's annexation of
the Golan Heights was another
step which could eventually drag
the U.S. into a nuclear war.
McCloskey said he had ex-
pected to vote for the $11.4 bil-
lion foreign aid bill approved by a
Senate-House conference com-
mittee. But now, he said, he has
written to every member of the
conference committee urging
them not to sign the bill.
West Bank. If that happens,
Camp David would be dead,
McCloskey said.
stressed that it is "entirely
appropriate" for Begin to say Is-
rael's foreign policy will not be
dictated by the U.S. But it is also
appropriate for the U.S. to say
that if Israel violates UN
Security Council Resolution 242,
it cannot receive American funds.
McCloskey said Resolution 242
calls for Israel to return the
Golan Heights to Syria once it
has been assured of its security.
McCloskey, who is seeking the
Republican nomination for Sen-
ator next year, came under heavy
fire from the Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith last July
for publicly charging that
American Jews "control the ac-
tions of Congress" with respect
to the Middle East.
He made that remark in a
speech to retired naval officers in
San Diego. He said, however,
that he did not believe his
position on the Golan annexation
would harm him
Druze Wont Need Identity Cards Just Yet
McCloskey differentiated sup-
port of Israel from support of the
government of Premier Mena-
chem Begin who, he said, since
his reelection last June, has been
pressing for annexation of the

The Interior Ministry said here
that Druze on the annexed Golan
Heights will not be forced to
carry Israeli identity cards, at
least for the time being. "Things
will be done gradually and rea-
sonably," Haim Kubersky, di-
rector general at the Ministry,

No More Surprises?
Sen. Charles Percy, chairman of the Senate
Foreign Relations Committee, is the Administra-
tion's latest hatchet man. He went to Israel not to
listen, but to talk. He left Israel issuing a warning:
No more surprises.
In essence, the Administration is saying that
the Golan Heights' annexation was merely the last in
a series of previous surprises, including Israel's
bombing of the Osirak nuclear reactor outside of
Baghdad last June and Israel's attack on the
Palestine Liberation Organization's nerve center in
Beirut shortly thereafter.
Then There's Egypt
The fact is that anything in the arena of foreign
affairs would be a surprise to President Reagan. The
impression being given is that only Israel pulls them.
The latest revisionist statements from the State
Department say otherwise, but wasn't the
Administration surprised by the Soviet Union's
show of force in Poland?
We can ask an even more sensitive question:
Wasn't the Administration surprised by the antics of
President Reagan's sidekick, now ex-National Secur-
ity Adviser Richard Allen, who accepted "gifts"
from the Japanese?
Prime Minister Begin was precisely right when
he scored the Reagan Administration for dealing
with Israel as if it were a vassal state. The point is
that only Israel is expected to act obsequiously;
everyone else can do damned well what they please.
Now that Percy's back, President Reagan him-
self has taken up the no-surprise warning. We
seriously doubt that Prime Minister Begin will tailor
his acts to suit either the President or the State
Department. We wouldn't want to bet that there will
be no more surprises like, for instance, the Egyptian
decision this week to buy French Mirages, a surprise
that is still leaving the Administration's tongue
hanging, no matter what its con men say to the con-
A Frightening Similarity
two biggest stories of 1981 for Jews throughout the
world were the reemergence of what seems like a co-
ordinated revitalization of anti-Semitic activity and
the proliferation of international terrorism.
We wouldn't want to take bets that most people,
except Jews themselves, could care less about the
anti-Semitism. But it is clear that the proliferation of
international terrorism has begun to generate fear in
everyone's heart and mind, not just in those of Jews,
who were the first victims of terrorist attack, not
only in Israel but throughout Europe: Italy, Austria,
Belgium, France.
Indeed, one of the granddaddies of terrorist ex-
plosions occurred in Munich, West Germany, during
the 1972 Olympics, where 11 Israeli athletes were
murdered by Palestinian machineguns.
Trouble is that the world can not make a distinc-
tion between anti-Semitism and terrorism, ignoring
the one and showing partiality of concern for the
other. In our view, the two are connected. Once
again, whether by mere history or divine scheme,
Jews are at the core of a world struggle for decency.
The apocalypse is now.
For those still in doubt, for those who still talk
about "liberation" movements, look to the Red
Brigade in Italy, the Baader-Meinhof in Germany,
the IRA in Ireland, the PLO in the Middle East.
They are all the same.

Israel's Amour With Bailey Smith
Friday. January 8, 1982
Volume 4
ajumber 2
HAIFA When the Rev. Bai-
ley Smith of Oklahoma said in
August, 1980, that "God does
not hear the prayers of a Jew,"
few would have expected that 16
months later he would be
received with honors by the
President of the State of Israel,
the Minister of Religions and
other public personalities here.
Many will recall that the out-
rageous statement by the in-
fluential president of the
Southern Baptist Convention
elicited a storm of protest from
Jewish circles. What was perhaps
not as well-publicized was the
contact established with him by
the Anti-Defamation League and
his public apology. In Israel last
month, he told reporters that he
had spoken out of ignorance.
This was not his first visit to
Israel, but this time, he saw it in
a different light, he said. Though
the trip was arranged by the
ADL, he hastened to make it
clear that he came at his own ex-
pense. The organization which he
heads has 14 million members,
Christian fundamentalists to
whom the Holy Land is inex-
tricably associated with their
IN THE PAST, their pilgrim
groups had for the most part
limited their tours to visits to the
Via Dolorosa, Bethlehem, Naza-
reth and other Christian sites.
What little they saw of the rest of
the country was through the eyes
of their East Jerusalem Arab
guides. All that will be changed,
the Rev. Smith said. Baptist visi-
tors must also get to see and
understand the miracle of the
modern Israel of the Jews.
He now plans to establish a
Baptist headquartera in Jeru-
salem which will help promote in-
terest in the land by members of
his faith. This is not the first pro-
ject of his denomination in the
country. Motorists on the main
highway just outside of Petach
Tikvah may have seen the sign
marking the location of the Bap-
tist Village, about which 1 have
written in the past. And in Jeru-
salem i9 the BapUst Center
headed by the Rev. Robert Lind-
sey, whom I first met 40 years
ago at a Young Judean seminar
in Ohio.
The Rev. Smith deeply regrets
his unfortunate statement, he
says but at least it opened the
way for a dialogue between Jews
and Baptists. The two groups
nave theological differences, he
says, primarily about Jesus, but
they have a thousand things in
common, and he hopes to conduct
public seminars in the U.S. with
the participation of rabbis and

THE VISITOR spoke frankly
and impressed observers here. As
if in anticipation of the charge
that missionary activity is
fundamental part of the Baptist
program, he enunciated the right
of every Jew to be a Jew. He
stressed Christianity's debt to
Judaism. "You have given us the
Bible, the Messiah, the History
of this land," he said. "Ours is
family relationship."
He repeated his firm friendship
for Israel, and revealed that he
had called upon President R*
gan not to press the AWACS sale
to Saudi Arabia, because it would
be harmful to IsraeL
At the same time, he made it
clear that he had no suthonty to

Erkk Hawkins has been
pointing the way forward in
American dance for over 30
years. Hu highly theatrical style
- a vivid joining of dance, music
and visual design has won
praise from audience and critic
alike throughout the country. He
is often tailed "the maverick of
the dance."
The company is composed of
nine dancers including Hawkins
and a seven-piece orchestra under
the direction of Braxton Blake.
Hawkins is uncompromising in
his insistence on performing only
with live music, and in commis-
sioning leading American
composers to write for his cham-
ber orchestra.
Hawkins was born in Colorado
and draws much of his choreo-
graphy from that western herit-
age. He studied at the School of
American Ballet, at that time in
its first years, then danced
through the 1930s with Ballet
Caravan, which was founded by
Lincoln Kir stein to provide an
outlet for American artists. In
1938, Hawkins joined the Martha
Graham Dance Company,
becoming its lead dancer by the
time he left in 1961.
Hia dance direction changed at
that point, and much of his work
was and is inspired by the
American Indian and the en-
vironment in which he grew up.
Opposed to the unnaturalness
demanded by ballet, Hawkins
creates choreography that allows
the human body to move at
its most beautiful, like a glorious
animal that moves in accordance
with nature, without violence or
i egotism, with that utterly in-
> stinctive lightness of animal
I movement."

Pentagon Proposes
$1.7 Billion in Aid
For Israel in '83
WASHINGTON (JTA) The Pentagon con-
firmed to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that it is pro-
posing $1.7 billion in military aid to Israel for fiscal year
1983. This amount, if approved by the Administration,
will be part of the fiscal 1983 foreign assistance bill to be
submitted to Congress for approval. It is $300 million
more than the military aid approved for fiscal 1982.
ACCORDING TO Pentagon sources, the sum was
decided on before Israel annexed the Golan Heights on
Dec. 14, precipitating an angry confrontation with the
Reagan Administration.
Defense Department officials were quoted as saying
that the $300 million boost is a "level of credit rather than
an appropriation" and "not a great amount considering
the size of the forces the Israelis must maintain in the
cruel inflation suffered by Israel." Israel reportedly had
asked for $1.9 billion in military aid for fiscal 1983.
The Boards of all Tampa Federation Agencies were invited to

Visit to Poland
In Search of Lost Jewish Centers
Continued from Page 1
Jewry, and pride in a lost ances-
For these new Polish towns
and villages lie in what were once,
for more than two hundred years,
the Polish provinces of the
Russian Empire. Here lived the
bulk of what are often called
"Russian" Jewry. From here
came most of the East Enders of
my own youth, and the grand-
parents, or great grandparents,
of most Jewish Britons today.
On my first visit, I went east-
ward from Warsaw. Every kilo-
meter had some Jewish echoes.
At the riverside town of
Wyszkow, there were still
memories of the Jewish partisans
who fought and perished in the
nearby woods, many of them sur-
vivors of the Warsaw ghetto up-
At Treblinka, a memorial field
is covered in stones, on each of
which is inscribed the name of a
community which was brought to
that evil place and destroyed. In
Bialystok, locals still remember
the names of the owners of many I
of the large Jewish houses still
standing, or take you inside their
own homes in the former Jewish
quarter to show some "fine"
Jewish artifact left behind by a
former owner: a porcelain stove,
or a carved wooden sideboard.
Few monuments or memorials
spell out what actually happened
to the Jews in any locality. One,
in Bialystok, records on a wall
plaque in Yiddish and Polish the
heroism of a young Jew, Icchok
Maimed, who poured acid from
his top floor window on to the
heads of the Gestapo below. In all
my travels, this was the only
public plaque which I saw to the
heroism of an individual Jew.
IN SIEDLCE, east of Warsaw,
another Polish and Yiddish in-
scription in the former Jewish
market square records in stone
the deportation and destruction
of more than 17,000 Jewish
citizens, while the square itself
now bears the name of "Ghetto
Fighters Square."
Thirty kilometers to the south,
in Lukow, the tombstones have
been collected from the Jewish
cemetery, and piled up into the
shape of a high pyramid, as a
massive memorial: the last note
of piety of the surviving Jews of
Lukow before they left their town
forever in 1946.
Such cemetery memorials are
rare. Further south, at Lubartow,
locals directed me to a large em-
pty field, in the long grass of
which families were picnicking
and sunbathing, while footballers
hit for goal in the shorter grass.
Underfoot, a hardstone proved to
be a tombstone; as I pulled away
the grass and moss, a finery
carved regal lion emerged.
Elsewhere, not even stones
survived: the former Jewish
cemetery at Wlodawa, on the
present Soviet border, was al-
most entirely submerged under
the municipal rubbish dump. I
was able to find a tew frajrments

of stones, and my young Catholic
companion, from Warsaw, ex-
claimed in surprise: "A cemetery
without stones."
YET IN this same town, on the
banks of the river Bug, still stood
a magnificent synagogue. Built
of brick, its facade crumbling but
its roof intact, this 17th Century
synagogue is not only carefully
looked after by the few surviving
local Jews, all elderly, but is be-
ing restored inside. The fine
baroque Ark of the Law, with its
screen of musical instruments, is
even now being replastered and
In October, 1942, more than
5,000 Wlodawa Jews, as well as
about 1,000 Jews from Vienna,
were driven from Wlodawa to the
nearby death camp at Sobibor,
where, today, steam engines still
draw up with their passengers at
the small rural railway station.
Nearby, on the site of the
former death camp to which more
than a quarter of a million Jews
were brought by train and mur-
dered, a plaque and monument
record the deaths there of a quar-
ter of a million Jews. At the site
of the crematorium, a mound of
human ash is all that remains,
"preserved" as a grim memorial.
In the surrounding fields, a
holiday camp resort is growing
up, with a small restaurant,
campers' tents, and a large,
colourful bill-board extolling the
camping facilities of the newly
created Sobibor recreational area.
The woods themselves, dense, re-
mote and (for Jews at least) som-
bre, are maintained and guarded
by a Jewish lumberman, another
of the hundreds of individual
Jews who can still be found,
mostly the sole survivors of large
communities, in remote corners
of Poland.
near the present Soviet border,
trains still steam, as at Sobibor,
into Belzec station. Here, the
short branch line to the death
camp still exists, as does the villa
of the camp commandant,
Christian Wirth. On the camp
site is a plaque recording the
murder there of "600,000 Jews
and 1,500 Poles who helped
In the rolling countryside
around Belzec are many memen-
toes of Jewish life, albeit without
plaques. At Tyszowce, for ex-
ample, every building of the old
shtetl is intact, from the rabbi's
house to the once much-praised
Jewish inn. Although it is now
entirely a Polish village, I was
able, with a pre-war town plan, to
walk from street to street and
house to house of a lost Jewish
In one of the bigger towns,
Zamosc, two fine "renaissance"
synagogues survive, and are ef-
fectively preserved through use
as a youth club and municipal of-
fices. In another region, south of
Kielce, a local Polish official is
making plans to put up plaques
in the surviving synagogues, in-
dicating what they were, and
describing something of the Jew-
ish life of yesteryear. As a Polish
lady said to me in the market
place of Lubartow: "Ah, you
should have seen this town in the
old days, when the Jews were
here. Then it had some life in it."
TODAY, relics of that "life"

It was by a chance encounter
with a woman in her late fifties

series of storerooms for furniture

the cemetery, however, a newly

vandals, while a local farmer has
lifted up the fallen stones, and re-
placed them in the earth. Know-

Ghali said in an interview pub-

it should be coordinated with

dairy, Le Monde, that the right
moment for such an initiative
might be after Israel completes
the final stage of its withdrawal
from Sinai Apr. 26.
"We still ardently hope for a
European initiative, provided it
is coordinated I stress com-

TEL AVIV An indefinite
curfew was imposed on Rafah in
the southern Gaza Strip after a
demonstration by local youths
protesting the introduction of a
civilian administration by the
Israeli authorities. Meanwhile,
the army lifted a curfew on the
Druze village of Majdal Shams
on the Golan Heights but con-
tinued an intensive search for two
terrorists believed to have infil-
trated the territory from Syria.
Tension has been running high
in the Gaza Strip since Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon separated
the military from the civilian ad-
ministration a month ago. The
local population saw the move as
the beginning of unilateral
autonomy aimed at perpetuating
Israel's control of the territoryTA
protest demonstration last
month ended in a clash with Is-
raeli troops in which a Rafah
youth was shot.
TEL AVIV Two leaders of
Labor Party, Shimon Peres and
former Premier Yitzhak Rabin,
have warned, in separate papers
submitted to party forums, that
Israel must avoid any binding
commitment to the Christian
militia in southern Lebanon.
Both presentations will be com-
bined and incorporated into the
Labor Party platform.
Although neither Labor Party
Chairman Peres or Rabin, his
erstwhile rival for leadership,
consulted each other, their con-
clusions were identical. Both
maintained that Israel should not
allow itself to be trapped into
making unconditional com-
mitments to the Christian faction
as Premier Menachem Begin's
government has done. They said
that in the event fighting is
renewed along the Israeli-Leba-
nese border, Israel should take
strong counteraction to end it but
not to gain territory.

By contrast to the Vatican's position, the Italian
government's reaction to Israel's move was mild. The
official statement spoke only of the government's
"concern." Parliament rejected a demand by the Com-

Italy's offer to particpate in the international peacekeep-

Israel Launches Massive Rabbis Divide on Annexation
Drive to Halt Hostility
Israel is launching a
massive information cam-
paign abroad to head off
mounting international
criticism of the action by
the Knesset and Cabinet to
apply Israeli law on the
Golan Heights.
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Sha-
mir has dispatched letters to the
foreign ministers of all countries
with which Israel has diplomatic
ties explaining the background
and motives behind the move.
And the Ministry has sent out
information papers to Israeli
legations and diplomatic
missions all over the world re-
plete with legal, strategic and
political arguments.
A Ministry spokesman said
this material had been prepared
months ago at the instruction of
Director General David Kimche,
in view of the long-standing
decision-in principle to extend Is-
raeli law and administration to
the Golan Heights.
IN ALL of these papers and
information guides, the Ministry
has refrained from using the term
"annexation." But neither is it
making a point of differentiating
between what Israel did and
annexation. Israeli diplomats are
instructed to stick precisely to
the wording of the bill adopted by
the Knesset last night: The
application of "Israeli law, juris-
diction and administration" to
the Golan Heights.
Privately, however, officials
explained that Israel's action was
a shade less than annexation in-
asmuch as it was not proposing
to impose Israeli citizenship on
the non-Jewish inhabitants of the
Golan Heights, mainly Druze.
There was no indication how
the Israeli move would affect the
pending decision by four Euro-
pean countriesBritain, France,
Italy and Holland to partici-
pate in the Multinational Force
and Observers (MFO) in Sinai.
Israel is awaiting the response of
those countries to its joint de-
claration with the U.S. affirming
the Camp David agreements as
the basis for the MFO.
Israeli circles now fear the
Europeans might reconsider their
offer to contribute to the MFO
because the Arab countries are
certain to view it as acquiescence
in Israel's move on the Golan.
ON THE other hand. Israeli
government officials are relieved
since it appeared that Egypt's
protests against the Golan law
would not lead to a disruption of
the peace process. That became
apparent when the working level
autonomy talks resumed in Tel
Aviv with the Israeli. Egyptian
and U.S. delegations participat-
In addition, the Egyptian
Minister of Tourism, Gamal el-
Nazer, arrived in Israel via the
overland Sinai route for a visit
that had been arranged some
time ago. He conferred with
Shamir, and according to Israeli
sources, their conversation was
limited to the normalization of
relations and the Golan issue was
not raised.
This JTA report was filed in
Jerusalem by David Landau.
senior member of the Agudat Is-
rael Council of Sages has
chastized Premier Menachem Be-
gin for annexing the Golan
Heights on grounds that the act
jeopardized the Jewish people by
angering the goyim (Gentiles).
The impassioned keynote
speech in Yiddish delivered by
Rabbi Eliezer Shach at the open-
ing of the World Agudat Israel
Executive meeting here suggest-
ed that the formula for survival
followed by Jews during cen-
turies of ghettoization in Europe
is still valid. Provoking the gen-
tiles is "not the Jewish way," he
THE EXISTENCE today of a
sovereign Jewish state, Shach
maintained, could in no way jus-
tify changing the age-old "Jewish
way" of "dancing before the
wicked, vicious goy. like the ma
yoffis (beautiful) yid of old, while
never forgetting that the goy is
nothing but a vicious, mad mur-
Specifically, the 83-year-old
rabbi contended that while
annexation of the Golan may be
beneficial to the State of Israel, it
is harmful to Am Yisrael (the
people of Israel) and especially
jeopardized American Jewry be-
cause it caused a confrontation
with the Reagan Administration.
SHACH NOTED that Begin,
in his recent attack on the
Administration for suspending
the U.S.-Israel strategic coopera-
tion agreement, had said that Is-
rael lived 3,700 years without
such an accord, and can live
another 3,700 years without one.
The rabbi observed in that con-
nection that Am Yisrael lived
2,000 years without annexing the
Golan and could live another
2,000 years the same way.
Shach s speech clearly em-
barrassed Aguda politicians who
recently were reprimanded by
Begin for abstaining in the
Knesset vote to impose Israeli
law on the Golan Heights. The
four-man Aguda Knesset faction,
a coalition partner, abstained be-
cause they had no instructions
from the Council of Sages to sup-
port the measure.
But after the session of the \
Executive, Aguda sources told
reporters that the other senior
member of the Council of Sage*
the Hasidic Rebbe of Ger, did not
object to "Israel holding the
Golan until the Messiah comes."
The Gerer Rebbe himself made no
speech at the gathering but sim-
ply uttered a blessing
gin had made a grievous error
and "who knows what high prin
we might have to pay for this
error?" He called on the Aguda
delegates to pray that the price is
not too high. But he also praised
Begin for his "warm attitude to-
ward religion."

"""opean Economic Community
A "disconcerting trend to-
ward anti-Semitism" in the
writings of some Christian
feminists was the focus of
attention at a recent con-
ference of 175 lay and or-
dained Catholic, Jewish
and Protestant feminists.
Annette Daum. coordinator of
the department of interreligious
affairs of the Union of American
Hebrew Congregations lUAHCl,
asserted that "by seeking to
prove that Christianity is not in-
herently anti- feminist." some
scholars have unintentionally in-
corporated past anti-Semitic pre-
judices "by attributing anti-
feminist elements of Christianity
to Judaic heritage."
Daum spoke at the second
annual convention of Feminists
of Faith, a national network of
feminists of various faiths formed
a year-and-a-half ago to combat
sexism in religion. Its major aim
is "to transform patriarchal
religions into egalitarian systems
that will permit women to enter
more fully into religious life and
enable them to serve God and
humanity more completely."
DAUM SAID "a tendency to
interpret Judaism in the worst
possible light and Christianity in
the best has led some Christian
writers to see Jesus, alone in his
culture, as a feminist." After ek-
ing examples of feminist ideas in
early Jewish tradition to counter
that notion, she concluded: "Nei-
ther the Christian nor Judaic
tradition has lived up to its ideals
in the treatment of women."
She told the conference, titled
"Moving Beyond Blame," that
"this is the first generation of
women that can band together to
challenge the second-class status
of women" in both Judaism and
Deborah Vansau McCaufey a
convenor of the Task Force on
Jewish-Christian Relations of the
Feminist Theological Institute,
declared there was a tendency
among Christian feminists "to
explicitly or implicitly blame
Judaism for beginning
The argument that "Jesus wss
a feminist," she contended,
"casts others in a worse light."
She challenged this argument
and termed it "revisionist his-
tory/' saying "it requires an im-
plicit anti-Judaism to support it.
To this, Christian feminists must
say 'Never again.' We shall find a
better way to call Christian insti-
tutions into accountability.' "
ER, associate professor of
New Testament in the Depart-
ment of Theology at Fordham
University, pointed out that "the
role of women in the church is al-
ways in reference to the subor-
dinate place of women in the
creation order described in
Genesis. This is the only theo-
logical argument for the sub-
ordination of women to men and
therefore deserves careful
Boucher, who is engaged in a
study of St. Paul's writingi
about women, asserted that both
his negative and positive writ-
ings oo this subject derive from
Judaism. She concluded "I don't
think it can be said that Paul
took a giant step beyond the rab-
bis of his tune."
Dr. Carter Hey ward, associatt
professor of theology at the
Episcopal Divinity School in
Cambridge, Mass., and an
Episcopalian minister, contended
that Christianity has been used
to foster sexism, anti-Semitism
and anti-Black attitudes. She
called on feminists to eradicate
"these evils."
Nina Cardin. editor of Conser-
vative Judaism and a past direc-
tor of the Jewish Women's Re-
source Center, noted that inscrip-
tions on recently unearthed
tombstones from the first cen-
tury reveal that Jewish women
occasionally had titles in syna-
gogues. "These may have been
simply honorific," she said, "but
it is quite likely that they de>
cribed actual executive posts."

Arena defended Begin's angry
attack on the U.S. which he de-
livered on Dec. 20 after Washing-
ton suspended the strategic
cooperation agreement. He said
someone other than Begin might
have used a "different tone" But
he contended that Begin's bitter
recriminations against the U.S.
were justified because "such dis-
criminatory and punitive action
is usually reserved for states al-
ready at war or on the verge of
hostilities." According to Arena,
he could recall nothing like them
since the freezing of Japanese as-
sets in the U.S. shortly before
Pearl Harbor.
ARENS SAID Washington's
measures would be counterpro-
ductive and would only stiffen
Israel's resolve not to budge on
an issue vital to its security.
Israeli Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon also had sharp words for
the U.S. in a weekend interview
published in Yediot Achronot. He
said that by suspending the
strategic cooperation agreement,
which he signed with
Secretary Caspar Weinberger
November 30, "The United
States had decided to try to force
Israel to return to the 1967
borders after April, 1982" when
its withdrawal from Sinai be-
comes final.
He said Israel had moved to
extend its law to the Golan
Heights in order to make it clear
that it will never return to the
1967 borders. The American re-
sponse, he said, was a breach of
the strategic cooperation under-
There was nothing in the

can dispute the fact that anti-
Semitism is fundamental to
Roman Catholic doctrine. We are
blinded by our own National Bro-
therhood Week propaganda if we
believe that Catholics no longer
learn this doctrine, or that they
no longer teach it to their chil-
Since the emergence of
Solidarity's struggle against
Communist Party oppression,
there have been many statements
issued by Pope John Paul, him-
self a Pole, calling for a peaceful
resolution of the struggle, state-
ments that have shown a clear
and fearless partiality for the
Solidarity point of view. But
there has yet to be a single papal
repudiation of the Communist
sponsored anti-Semitic rationale
for the struggle.
More specifically, there has not
been a single warning from him
to the Polish people to reject the
poisonous propaganda emanat-
ing from the Kremlin as godless,
let alone absurd. There has not
been a single papal reminder that
the new Polish anti-Semitism
violates the memories of those
Polish Jews who fought against
the Nazis and died for the very
freedoms that Solidarity seeks in
the name of Poland today.
NOR HAVE I heard an equi-
valent warning from the Roman
Feds Urged
Church in other countries against
this anti-Semitic scourge, al-
though all of them are eloquent in
lining up with Solidarity in its
hour of agony.
What is happening in Poland
should be, in the end, a warning
to us all. Our own Roman
Catholic population grows in
frantic proportion as emigration
from Latin America and the
Caribbean nations, legal and il-
legal, approaches tidal propor-
In these countries especially,
where poverty and disease and
civilizational backwardness keep
people in medieval bondage,
Roman Catholic doctrine reigns
supreme. Transported to Amer-
ica, where the Hispanic presence
today approaches 25 millMme, it
can become an incredible danger
to Jewish survival.
I suspect that one reason for
the powerful emergence of Pro-
testant fundamentalism in the
recent peat is this movement's
awareness of the sudden new
strength of presence of the
Roman Catholic Church in Amer-
ica and throughout the Western
world, and that the Protestant
majority may well become a
thing of the past in the not too
distant future
Jews, too, must become mili-
tant in their dealings with Roman
Catholicism. Increasingly, rather
thr-n engaging in obsequious dia-
logue with Catholics on a polite
but purely phony "inter-
religious" level, they must be
prepared to let Catholic dogma-
tists know that their anti-Semitic
underpinnings are both un-
acceptable and dangerous.
THE TYPICAL Catholic or
even generally Christian response
to this, when on rare occasion a
Jew is firm enough to speak out,
is that the Church will not change
its dogmatic precepts, its divine
inspiration, to please someone
Well, neither will the Jews. The
Church should have learned this
long ago in any case. It is after all
the Jewish Bible, literature, pro-
phecy, history, law and even God
Himself which Christianity has
usurped, corrupted to please its
own needs, and forever after pur-
ports to tell the Jews what it all
means. And punishes them for
refusing to accept the usurpation
into the bargain. Talk about a
Bowdler with gall.
Bearing this in mind, we must
view the Roman Catholic tidal
wave in the Western Hemisphere
with alarm. Roman Catholic ac-
ceptance of anti-Semitism in Po-
land should warn us about how
alarmed we ought to be.
And that is no joke, Polish or
Support Non-Quota Affirmative Action
testimony before the U.S.
Senate, the American
Jewish Committee has
urged the Federal Govern-
ment to support non-quota
affirmative action pro-
grams designed to recruit,
train, and upgrade minor-
ity group members, wom-
en, and persons from disad-
vantaged backgrounds.
Appearing before the Senate
Committee on Labor and Human
Resources, which is holding
hearings on affirmative action,
Dr. Bernice Sandier, Chairperson
of the Women's Issues Commit-
tee of AJC's Domestic Affairs
Commission, said that AJC
strongly advocates:
Special efforts to recruit
qualified members of "previously
excluded groups" for available
job openings. "This means going
beyond traditional referral
sources," Dr. Sandier said,
adding: "It especially means em-
ploying community resources
that reach out to members of
these groups."
Training programs includ-
ing tutoring, apprenticeship, and
in-service training programs
to help members of groups that
historically have been discrimi-
nated against or otherwise
.Continued review of all tests
to make sure they are relevant to
the job and as free as possible
from cultural and other bias.
e Periodic review of all jobs to
make sure that the prerequisites
for them continue to be valid.
Granting special considera-
tion to job applicants who belong
to disadvantaged groups if the
qualifications of these applicants
are substantially equal to those
of other applicants.
e Continuous efforts within
companies to inform all their per-
sonnel of the objectives and
procedures of company affirma-
tive action programs.
TURNING to the use of
quotas, goals, and timetables in
affirmative action programs. Dr.
Sandier stated that AJC sup
ports "proper use of goals and
timetables" but "rejects quotas
as destructive of individual
rights" and believes that the "in-
herent dangers (of quotas) out-
weigh any temporary gains they
might bring."
Dr. Sandier said that quotas
"unnecessarily trammel the in-
terests of others since they dose
off the possibility that individ-
uals from non-preferred groups
can compete for the places set
aside by the quota."
Moreover, quotas "assault the
concept of individual merit" and
could lead to a society "per-
meated by racial, ethnic, religious
and sexual proportional
representation in which indi-
viduals were regarded primarily
as representatives of their quota
group, and individual aspiration
would be limited by the propor-
tionate size of the individual's
Dr. Sandier contended also
that quotas have "exacerbated
mtergroup tensions over affirma-
tive action" and have produced a
"backlash against other, leas in-
trusive, forma of affirmative
Ont he other hand. Dr. Sandier
argued, "goals, as opposed to
quotas, may be necessary to
assure the effectiveness of af-
firmative action programs."
EXPLAINING this view, Dr.
Sandier said: "Goals, unlike
quotas, are realistic numerical
objectives based on the number
of vacancies expected and the
number of qualified applicants
available Goals are flexible
and can be adjusted if they are
shown to be unrealistic. .
"An employer should never be
expected to displace existing em-
ployees or to hire poorly qualified
persons to meet the goal; and an
employer is not subject to sanc-
tion if he has demonstrated good
faith efforts through affirmative
action to meet the goal."

A memorial room honoring former Vice
President Hubert H. Humphrey has been
established at the headquarters of the Anti-
Defamation League in New York Dominated
by a larger-than-life bronze relief of the late
Mr. Humphrey, the room will contain photo-
graphs and other memorabilia depicting his
long career. Participating in the dedication
ceremony were his widow, Mrs. Muriel Hum-
phrey Brown, and son, Hubert H. Humphrey
III (second and third from left); Benjamin R.
Epstein, executive vice president of the ADL
Foundation (left); Burton M. Joseph, presi-
dent of the ADL Foundation, and his wife,
Geri Joseph, former U.S. Ambassador to the
Netherlands, who was principal speaker. The
Josephs were longtime friends and associates
of Mr. Humphrey.
Ghetto Hero's Arrest Assailed in U.S.
The arrest by Polish authorities of the last sur-
viving leader of the 1943 Warsaw ghetto uprising
has been assailed by Rabbi Alexander M. Schind-
ler, president of the Union of American Hebrew
Congregations, who charged the military regime
in Poland with "using anti-Semitism in an at-
tempt to whip up public support for its repression
of the Solidarity movement."
In a cable to martial law chief and Prime Minis-
ter Wojciech Jaruzelski, Rabbi Schindler protest-
ed the arrest of Dr. Marek Edelman, a command-
er of the underground Jewish resistance move-
ment in Poland during World War II and now one
of the country's leading cardiologists.
Rabbi Schindler noted that Dr. Edelman's per-
sonal prestige as an anti-Nazi partisan had pro-
tected him during earlier periods in Poland's
troubled post-war history. "Now, however," Rab-
bi Schindler said, "the Polish government does
not hesitate to arrest even so prominent and
patriotic a figure as Marek Edelman."
Edgar M. Bronfman. World Jewish Congress
president, is holding wide-ranging talks with
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and other
senior governmental authorities during a three-
day visit to Cairo as official guest of the Egyptian
President. Bronfman will also be greeted by the
leadership of the Egyptian Jew sh community
during a reception in his honor in the ancient
quarter of Cairo.
The invitation to Bronfman for an official visit
to Egypt was originally extended by the late
President Sadat during the last private meeting
between the two at the time of Sadat's trip to
New York in August. Mubarak subsequently
confirmed the invitation and shortly after assum-
ing office communicated to the W JC his personal
desire to meet with Bronfman.
The American Jewish Committee has urged
U.S. Attorney General William French Smith to
oppose legislation now pending in Congress that
would strip the U.S. Supreme Court and other
Federal courts of their jurisdiction to review cases
concerning organized prayer in the public schools,
as well as those concerning abortion and desegre-
gation of public schools.
In a letter to the Attorney General, Richard L.
Weiss, chairman of AJC's Domestic Affairs Com-
mission, protested what he characterized as a
"back door" approach to curtailing the power of
the Federal courts to rule on such matters. Such
an attempt be said, seeks to "tamper with the
separation of powers between the three branches
of government as set forth in the Constitution."
Weiss reminded Attorney General Smith that a
proposed Constitutional amendment to permit
organized prayer in the public schools had pre-
viously failed to command the necessary support
in Congress.
The historic agreement defining areas of re-
sponsibility for service to the world Jewish com-
munity which was signed 35 years ago by
Organization for Rehabilitation through Training
and the Joint Distribution Committee, on Jan-
uary 20, 1947, will be commemorated at the
National Conference of the American ORT
Federation on Jan. 22 to 24, at the Sheraton
Centre in New York.
Delegates from Men's ORT Chapter* through-
out the U.S. will participate in the three-day
round of discussions and activities geared to
directing ORT's worldwide network in the 1980s.
Local delegates from Florida will include Robert
M. Levy, president of the Greater Miami Chapter
of ORT.
Among the featured speakers at the AOF
national conference will be Edward M.M. War-
burg, past chairman of the JDC. and Henry Taub,
current JDC president.
The American Jewish Congress, in a friend-of-
the-court brief submitted to the U.S. Supreme

mands and calls on the high court to reverse a
Mississippi Supreme Court ruling prohibiting the
boycott and holding the NAACP liable for
Announcement of the filing was made by Paul
S. Berger, co-chair of the governing council of the
AJ Congress.
Asserting that the lower court decision places
"an unreasonable restraint" on legitimate
political action, the American Jewish Congress
notes that "organized political activity of a kind
long recognized as having constitutional protec-
tion would effectively be prohibited" if the high
court affirms the Mississippi decision.
The successful conclusion of the Israel diamond
cutters' strike marks the beginning of a new era of
growth for the Israel diamond industry, it was
declared this week by Moshe Schnitzer, president
of the Israel Diamond Exchange and of the World
Federation of Diamond Bourses.
With an increase of 30 percent in piece-rate
wages during the next two years, Israel's skilled
cutters will have more incentive to enhance pro-
duction of the small to medium-size stones which
are in heavy demand in world markets.
Schnitzer pointed out that Israeli diamond cut-
ters are by far the world's most cost-effkamt pro-
ducers of quality gem diamonds. The ability of
workers in Israel to obtain the highest percentage
of yield from the rough is said to considerably
lower the cost of Israeli polished stones.

to Naphtali Lavie, the Israeli
Consul General in New York.
Lavie says he does not think
the Israeli action would lead to a
crisis with the U.S. But he cites
the failure of U.S. diplomatic ef-
forts to get Syria to remove its
anti-aircraft misailee from
Lebanon as another reason why
Israel acted on the Golan
a country that has consistently
declared that it will not negotiate
with Israel or recognize it and is
committed not to reach a peace
agreement with Israel. In that
connection, he quoted a Kuwait
newspaper interview with Syrian
President Hafez Assad who re-
portedly said that "even if the
Palestine Liberation Organiza-
tion recognizes Israel, we in Syria
cannot recognize it."
"How," Lavie asked, "could
the Syrians expect Israel to sit
idly and not give its citizens and
settlements on the Golan Heights
the same civilian and juridical
status that any other citizens
now have?" He noted that Syria
has been occupying a major part
of Lebanon, thereby preventing
any settlement of that country's
crisis and posing i
threat on Israel from

Says Bonn Won't Sell Arms to Saudis
IVVU YORK Wool- .... .
Germany's Ambassador to
the United Nations has in-
formed the World Jewish
Congress that the general
opposition within Germany
to the enlargement of for-
eign military exports would
I preclude arms shipments to
[Saudi Arabia. At the same
time, he reaffirmed the con-
Itinued "special relation -
[ship" between Israel and
[the German Federal
I Republic.
Guenther van Well has held
lengthy discussions at a private
session of the WJC American
Section here, meeting with
I leaders of two dozen national
[Jewish organizations. The talks
I dealt with an array of pressing
[global issues, including East-
[West relations, the United
[Nations, and the Israel-Arab
| question.
Van Well, who accompanied
I German Chancellor Helmut Sch-
Imidi to Saudi Arabia in April,
I disclosed details of their conver-
Isations with Crown Prince Fahd.
I Van Well noted that when Fahd's
I remarks turned to explanations
of the security concerns of Saudi
Arabia "he didn't mention Is-
I reel."
IN FACT, van Well added.
Fahd instead singled out difficul-
ties with Yemen and South
j'emen, while pointing out that
"it all started with Nassar" who
et the Soviets come into the
jion, with blame also going to
he British who made the "short-
Isighted mistake" of abandoning
Aden. On the second day of dia-
Icussions with Fahd, the Arab-Is-
Irael question was taken up, and
Ivan Well quoted the Crown
I Prince as saying "it's incon-
stable that Israel is a normal
plement in the region."
German policy towards the
diddle East, the Ambassador
xmtinued, was of a two-fold
ature. Beyond its stance taken
> conjunction with the European
ommunity, Germany would
[never lose sight of that special
responsibility vis-a-vis Israel."
Even when temporary misunder-
standings arise, the strength of
the major elements in" that
relationship would come to the
fore, he said.
Reacting to concerns raised
about European support for the
Camp David process, van Well
dealt first with the Israel-Egypt
peace treaty: "We have always
told the Arabs," he said, "we
don't understand why you op-
pose this because here inter-
national borders are being re-
stored and part of resolution 242
is being implemented." In van
Well's view, European questions
on the other major aspect of the
Camp David accords, the Pales-
tinian autonomy framework, can
be traced to the differing inter-
pretations placed by the two ma-
jor partners to the framework
talks as to the final outcome ot
the autonomy agreement.
explained that the European
position was such that the Camp
David process had precedence,
while the Europeans hoped to re-
main available in the event of an
impasse to ensure continuance of
the peace process. It was -from
this motivation, he remarked,
that in the aftermath of Sadat's
murder the Europeans agreed to
participate in the Sinai Multi-
lateral Force in order "to rush in
and help stabilize the situation."
Van Well spoke in positive
terms of French Foreign Minister
Cheysson's recent visit to Israel,
expressing happiness that
Franco-Israel relations had be-
come closer. Noting that "the
relationship between Germany
and France was an essential
relationship," he said that im-
proved relations between Israel
and France "make things for us
much easier" and characterized
this development as "most wel-

Israel to desist from further

vancing the peace process. In a

Sen. Percy
THIS MOVE was one of the
"unilateral actions" Percy had
referred to during his talks with
Israeli leaders. Two others were
Israel's bombing of the Iraqi
nuclear reactor and the Palestine
Liberation Organization
headquarters in Beirut.
The Senator stressed that he
had been given "categorical
assurances" from Israeli leaders
that Israel would strictly abide
by its peace treaty with Egypt
which calls for final withdrawal
from Sinai next April. Percy said
he was confident that Egypt
would respond in kind by pur-
suing the normalization process
between the two countries as
stipulated in the treaty.
He said he had also urged
Israeli leaders to pursue "most
urgently" the autonomy talks
because time was not unlimited.
Israeli reports said Begin had
urged Percy when they met for
three hours to persuade the
Reagan Administration to ap-
point a special envoy to the
autonomy talks. The Senator
revealed that he had met with
three Palestinian leaders during
his visit but did not name them.

Brussels Confab to Map Worldwide
Pressure on Soviet Emigration Policy
The Presidium of the Brussels
Conference on Soviet Jewry will
meet in Washington in two weeks
to plan a campaign of world-wide
pressure on the Soviet Union to
increase the number of Jews
allowed to emigrate, it was an-
nounced here by Leon Dulzin,
chairman of the World Zionist
Organization and Jewish Agency
Dulzin said the precipitous de-
cline in Soviet Jewish emigration
was largely responsible for the
near record low of immigration to
Israel in 1981. Figures just
released showed that only 12,000
olim arrived this year, the small-
est number since 1953. They in-
cluded 2.200 from the U.S. and
1.820 from the USSR. Dulzin
noted that this was the first time
in a decade that more immigrants
came from America than from the
Soviet Union.
HE BLAMED the Soviet
closed-door policy on the high
rate of drop-outs. Of the 9,400
Jews allowed to leave Russia,
7,580 chose to go to countries
other than Israel.
Dulzin said the pressure cam-
paign on the Soviet Union could
be effective now than an agree-
ment has been reached with
HI AS to implement the Israel
government-Jewish Agency plan
to reduce the number of drop-
outs. The plan requires HIAS to
deny assistance to Soviet Jewish
emigres seeking to go to the U.S.
unless they have first degree
relatives parents, spouses or
children in that country.
Dulzin observed that aliya
from the West continued at the
rate of about 10,000 consistent
with past years' figures.
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"And ^rael stretched out his riKht hand, and laid it upon
hphraim s head, who was the you niter, and his left hand upon
Manusseh s head" (Gen. 48.14).
VAYEHI Jacob lived in Egypt 17 years. On his death bed. he
blessed his sons, predicting the destiny of the tribes that were to
descend from each of them. Ephraim and Manasseh. Joseph's
two sons, were included in the roster of Jacob's sons, the heads
of future tribes. Jacob died: the Egyptian physicians embalmed
his body, after the custom of the country. Jacob was buried in
the land of Canaan, in the Cave of Machpelah, together with his
ancestors. Joseph continued to provide for his brothers after
their father's death. Before his own death. Joseph made his
brothers swear that when they returned to Canaan they would
Lake his bones with them to the Promised Land. Joseph died
meanwhile, his embalmed body was placed in a coffin, awaiting
the return to Canaan.
