intrinsic values of Israel as
erica's best ally in the Middle
st are no longer represented

ICHURBA STRESSED that
|It is now up to Congress and the
pie of the United States to let

kluethe Israel connection. And
[am not referring to the Jewish
nmunily. The general Ameri-
can public and retired military
leaders who are free to express
themselves, all understand the
geopolitical importance of Israel
in the Levant."
Furthermore, Churba said, "If
the present Aministration team
should attempt to exert leverage
on Israel in favor of the Pales-
tinians to placate their Suadi-
Arabian clients, Israel couldn't
go it alone.' "
Churba said that "Israel has
assumed a new military signifi-
cance for the U.S." He pointed
out that "within the space of one
week (during the Lebanon war) it
destroyed $3 billion worth of So-
viet equipment and captured $2
billion worth of the same, while
utilizing no more than 11 percent
of its capabilities. Were the
superior Israeli war technology
and tactics grafted onto the
NATO capabilities, it would be
possible to eliminate the Soviet
superiority on the Central
Front."
ISRAEL, he pointed out, "has
military self-sufficiency, superior
manpower and advanced technol-
logy. One cannot stabilize the
Middle East theater without
Israel any more than Western
Europe without West Germany,
or the Far East without Japan.

"Arab military power has vir-

the Soviet replenishment to Sy-
ria. The Persian Gulf region
remains the epicenter of global
politics and whichever way the
Iraq-Iran war goes, Saudi Arabia
stands to lose. Events there will
prove paramount to the Pales-
tinian issue."
Calling Secretary of State
George Shultz, Defense Secretary
Caspar Winberger, and President
Reagan's special envoy to the
Middle East, Philip Habib, "the
boys from Bechtel," Churba
asserted that as long as policy
making is in their hands U.S.
power and diplomacy will be
irrelevant in the region."
THE THREE Secretaries were
officials of the Bechtel Corpor-
ation before joining the Reagan
Administration. Given Bechtel's
business interests in Saudi Ara-
bia, many Congressmen and
Jewish leaders were concerned
that they would "tilt" toward
Saudi Arabia in their Adminis-
tration functions.
"But Saudi Arabia is no longer
the all-powerful banker who pulls
the strings," Churba said. "Be-
tween the oil glut and the world-
wide depression as well as the
religious and political ferment in
the Arab world it is a country
at risk and growing weaker. Its
importance to the present U.S.
team is not as guardian of the
Persian Gulf but as a market for
U.S. goods."

NEW YORK. N.Y. One
hundred fifty-six communities all
across America will participate in

fundraising goal of $30 million,
Jerome J. Dick of Washington,
DC. UJA Super Sunday
National chairman announced
today.
"Thousands of volunteers in
communities from Orange Coun-
ty. Calif., to Orange County. New

and out to Honolulu, too
will be making tens of thousands
of phone calls in the biggest one-
day fundraising event in our his-
tory." said Dick, a UJA National

ing more people and raising more
money in a single day than ever
before.
"When the people we phone
respond generously with an in-
creased commitment to the 1983
Regular Campaign and an ad-
ditional pledge to the Israel Spe-
cial Fund, thereby helping to
meet Jewish needs in Israel,
around the world and in their own
communities, they will truly be
living out this year's slogan:
'Answer the Call to Life.' "
On Super Sunday '82, more
than 35,000 volunteers in 139
U.S. communities raised almost
$26.9 million, a record amount for
a one-day mass appeal.

7* "crimes against humanity" for
9 his acts during World War II

of having collaborated with the
Nazis in the deportation of over
1,000 Jews, including some 200
children, from Bordeaux.
' Papon, who joined the French
resistance in 1943, is charged
I with having signed a number of
official documents providing for
French police cooperation with
the Nazis in the deportation of
Bordeaux Jews. A jury of honor,

We were so delighted to read about some of our good friends
in the last two editions of Tampa Magazine. Now that these
three men are famous, they may even consent to giving you their
autograph! In the magazine's December issue, one of our
favorite dentists, Dr. Leon Schwartz was written up in an article
entitled "Dr. Leon Schwartz Sympathetic Oral Surgeon."
Leon is Florida's longest practicing oral surgeon close to fifty
years to be exact! In the article. Leon discusses how he deals
with pain everyday and likes to make oral surgery not such a
traumatic and painful experience for his patient. He wants the
patient to be able to say. "You know, that really wasn't so bad
afterall." Leon has served or been appointed to numerous boards
and has received a myriad of recognitions.
In the January issue of Tampa Magazine, there was an article
entitled "The Class of 83 83 Who Do It Best in the Area."
The two men I am going to tell you about were really in a
"hostsy-totsy" article, right next to Burt Reynolds, who was
written up as Best Actor! "A Classic Poet" Hans Juergensen,
whose works have appeared in more than 100 publications. Hans
is a Professor of Humanities, German, and Creative Writing at
the University of South Florida. He was published 10 volumes of
poetry and translations. He has been called "an outstanding
contemporary American poet."
"A Lawyer's Lawyer" is they way the magazine billed Marvin
Barkin. who practices with the firm of Trenam. Simmons
Kemker, Scharf, Barkin. Frye. and O'Neill, in Tampa. Marvin
specializes in Civil Litigation and has practiced here for 22
years. He is an honors graduate of Harvard Law School. The
article discusses his phenominal memory and how he uses it to
its fullest extent in his law practice.
We congratulate all three of you on being selected to appear in
these articles. We agree, Leon, Marvin, and Hans you are
something special!

Security Forces Arrest
2 Men Who Carried
Out Grenade Attack
TEL AVIV (JTA) Security forces have arrested
two men, one 18 years old and other 28, from the Gaza
Strip who carried out a grenade attack on a bus in Tel
Aviv on Jan. 8 in which 12 persons were injured. An army
spokesman said the two men admitted their action and
said they had been trained in Egypt. They said they were
members of the El Fa ten wing of the PLO.
THE 18-YEAR-OLD TERRORIST was from the
refugee camp at Deir El-Ballach near Gaza, and the other
was from Marazi village also in the Gaza Strip. The army
spokesman said one had confessed also to a grenade
attack in the Gaza Strip last November which killed one
Arab and wounded another.
Israel has in the past accused Egypt of failing to
prevent Palestinian terrorists from infiltrating into the
Gaza Strip from Egypt, and thence into Israel.

New Commission
Will Explore Nuclear Arms Warfare
KIAMESHA LAKE,
INY. (JTA) Rabbi
Gilbert Klaperman, presi-
dent of the Rabbinical
Council of America, said he
would appoint a new com-
mission to explore the hala-
chic implications of the
nuclear age, including the
development of nuclear
I arms and nuclear war.
Addressing more than 200
[rabbis at the closing session of
[the Council's two-day meeting
Here, Klaperman said he decided
I to appoint the commission
ecause "We have to extrapolate
["*'applications from halacha,
*'thin a totally new framework,
to deal with the morality of
| nuclear weapons escalation."
The Orthodox rabbi noted that
* "could not see how the nor-
"^"y applicable categories of
Jewish law (halacha) such as self-
I *'ense, endangerment, over-
reaction to attack, and legal
restraints, could possibly be
directed to the contemporary
nuclear age in which the two
superpowers are already facing
[each other with taut trigger
(lners on cocked nuclear
*eapons."
STRESSING THAT "if ever
tiere was a time for collective
"orld sanity, it is now," Klaper-
n called for a nuclear freeze by
J* superpowers provided that
V agreement arrived at would
* subject to adequate inspection
^control and that the United
*ates would not be potentially
sk as a result of the
eement.
wZ!!ere are e>ugh nuclear
**Pons already in existence in
dest 9 f world Pwers to
times
"Each
the world a number of
over." Klaperman said.
RTeat power has enough
destructive potential might now
to maintain an effective mutual
deterrent against a first strike
without the need to build more
nuclear weapons."
Continuing, he declared: "We
must de-fuse the nuclear arms
race and make every effort to
reduce the escalation of nuclear
arms. Perhaps as we wind down
the expansion of weaponry, we
will also wind down the threat of
nuclear havoc and holocaust."
Klaperman pointed out that "The
immense colossal, inconceivable
destruction that could result
from a nuclear war is a quantum
leap from the destruction
resulting from the use of conven-
tional weapons."
RABBI J. David Bleich,
professor of Talmud at Yeshiva
University and Tenzer Professor
of Jewish Law and Ethics at the
Benjamin Cardozo Law School at
Yeshiva University, said there is
no more significant social, poli-
tical issue to which rabbis could
now turn their attention than the
question of nuclear war.
He said that according to
Judaism, war is absolutely
forbidden, other than at specific
divine behest. The only time
when one can use arms, other
than at divine behest, is for self-
defense. But, Bleich noted, self-
defense is not characterized as
Missiles are Threat
UNITED NATIONS (JTA)
Israel charged Monday that
Syria's new Soviet missiles, de-
livered to it in recent weeks, pose
a serious threat to Israel's
security. In a letter to the UN
Security Council, Yehuda Blum,
Israel's Ambassador, said, that
the newly introduced long-range
Soviet missiles are capable of
penetrating deep into Israel's air-
space and other neighboring
war. "Self-defense give the in-
tended victim the right to
eliminate aggression, but not the
right to sacrifice the lives of inno-
cent bystanders," he said.
The rabbinic scholar pointed
out that war, "when theologically
sanctified, generates the right to
go to battle even though there
may be casualties among non-
combatants. Nuclear warfare,
such as occurred at Hiroshima,
involved intentional annihilation
of innocent combatants." The
direct intention to kill non-
combatants "such as in nuclear
war is morally and theologically
odious and morally indefensible,"
Bleich added. He stressed
however, that he is opposed to
unilateral disarmament.
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Julius Berman, chairman of
the Conference of Presi-
dents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, has
expressed "deep distress"
over anti-Semitic manifes-
tations in Greece and the
Greek government's strong
criticism of Israel since the
war in Lebanon last sum-
mer.
In a letter to the Ambassador
of Greece in Washington, Nicolas
Karandreas, Berman said it was
"particularly distressing" that
Greece had voted in the United
Nations General Assembly last
month in favor of a resolution
calling for sanctions against Is-
rael and its political and diplo-
matic isolation.
"GREECE WAS the only
member of the European
Economic Community to support
this nefarious call," Berman
wrote the Ambassador. "To-
gether with other, previous
actions of a similar nature, this
vote has caused anguish and dis-
appointment of the friends of
Greece in the American Jewish
community." Berman asked the
envoy to convey these concerns
to his government.
The situation in Greece has ap-
parently alarmed that country's
small Jewish community which
numbers about 5,000 out of a
population of over 9.7 million and
has prompted the Athens
government to offer reas-
surances.
Justice Minister George
Mangakis met with a group of
Greek Jewish leaders last week
who urged that the present law
against racism be amended to in
elude a ban on religious dis-
crimination.
Mangakis pledged that the
government would take "the first
opportunity" to press for legisla-
tion against religious discrimina-
tion. He assured the Jewish
delegation that despite its
criticism of Israeli policies, par-
ticularly its invasion of Lebanon
last summer, the government of
Prime Minister Andreas Papan-
dreou is not anti-Semitic.
NEVERTHELESS, the dis-
tinction between Israeli policies
and Jews was blurred. In many
incidents in recent months, Jews
were attacked under the guise of
anger against Israel's treatment
of the Palestinians.
An angry letter was read on
the State television urging a boy-
cott of Jewish stores. There were
bomb attacks on a Jewish-owned
travel agency and an Israeli com-
pany selling solar energy equip-
ment in Athens. Placards were
seen at anti-Israel demonstra-
tions declaring "Out with Jews,"
and graffiti smeared in Athens
repeated the slogan, "Zionists,
Murderers of People."

U.S. Snubs Peace?
Michigan's Sen. Carl Levin (D.) made a
good point this week when he pinpointed
the Reagan Administration as the heavy in
the failure thus far to achieve peace in
Lebanon.
Further, Levin let it be known that both
President Reagan and the State Depart-
-nen|fcnew and kept secret the fact that
there were many Palestine Liberation Or-
ganization fighters in force in Beirut at a
time when in public they were supporting
the exit of the PLO from the country and
the withdrawal of the armies of Israel and
Syria.
In effect, Levin declared, the U.S. is not
committed to a stable peace between Israel
and Lebanon and is sabotaging every effort
put forth by the Israelis to achieve one. It
is not in the best American interest to
establish this kind of peace because, in
effect, it would offend the Arabs.
Is Sen. Levin correct? We are reasonably
certain he is, and not because of any of his
revelations. Apart from the information he
Beirut, which was never exactly a secret
either, the Michigan Senator was simply
drawing his conclusions from events in the
Middle East over the past few weeks.
Perhaps one of the most important of
these events has been the Reagan Adminis-
tration's successful attempt so far to in-
timidate the American Jewish community
and split it wide apart over Israel's conduct
of the war in Lebanon and its aftermath.
If American and Arab reactions to the
war have been strictly political, the
reactions of some Jews in America, in
Europe, indeed in Israel itself, have
presumably been on the grounds of moral
exception.
But the intimidation of the Reagan
forces has as its object to turn these moral
exceptions into political fears. For
example, another event as an aftermath of
the war: Only this week, the Reagan Ad-
ministration denied reports that the U.S. is
prepared to cut off aid funds to Israel if the
Israelis do not agree quickly to an essential
unconditional withdrawal from Lebanon. Is
that intimidation enough?
We do not intend further to catalogue
events. Editorials here since the conclusion
of the war in Lebanon have done that. Our
purpose is mainly to warn the American
Jewish community of the Reagan strategy.
And to have the American Jewish com-
munity understand that, as it affords for
itself the luxury of moral debate, what the
Administration has in mind is to press
Israel back into its pre-1967 borders, no
questions asked.
They Were Only Following Orders
TEL AVIV (JTA) The
defense attorney for an Israeli
major and six soldiers accused of
using excessive force to subdue
Arab demonstrators on the West
Bank claimed in court that the
defendants were acting under the
direct orders of Chief of Staff
Gen. Rafael Eitan.
The attorney submitted for the
record documents containing the
minutes of a staff meeting at.
which Eitan allegedly ordered in-
discriminate harassment of the
Arab civilian population on the
West Bank to curb disturbances
in the territory last March. He
also instructed military courts in
the area to impose stiffer punish-
ment on Arabs arrested for disor-
derly conduct.
The full contents of the docu-
ments were not made public. If
they are challenged by the
military prosecutor s office
Fit3n may be"' summoned to*"
testily at the trial.

Thanksgiving to New Years: One-Half Million Dollars
By JOEL BREITSTEIN
Director,
TOP Jewish Foundation
The business of endowment
kevelopment through the TOP
[ewish Foundation is a year
ound operation. However, like
ny business, there are certain
Bns that seem to be better
an others.
In the retail world the period
etween Thanksgiving and
Christmas is.one of the busiest,
he Jewish Community pumps
lot cash or clicks its plastic
noney for Hannukah presents,
vhile the Non-Jewish Com-
ounity floods the shopping malls
search of Christmas gifts. In
business of endowment gift
velopment, however, the
f season" extends to the stroke of
lidnight on New Years Eve, and
ather than buying, the Founda-
tion is receiving.
This year, from Thanksgiving,
1982 through December 31, 1982,
The Foundation secured $500,000
forth of new gifts or additions to
Funds" that had already been
iened. In addition to cash gifts
First Grade Focus
At Hillel School
By NINA SINSLEY
Librarian Hillel School
Sharon Lancz, Hillel School
[first grade teacher has been given
quite a challenge of late. Her first
trade students have been signing
[their class assignments, not with
jtheir English names, but with
iHebrew names written in cursive
I Hebrew. She must figure out
|whose work it is.
, The Hebrew language is new
|for these six-year-olds, and they
I have taken to it like the prover-
|bial "duck-to-water."
The enthusiasm for learning at
I Hillel is expressed by the chil-
Idren:
Teddy Nathan: "First grade is
I terrific because of learning
things, especially Hebrew and
I lots of words."
Sam Linsky: "I enjoy sports,
and Mrs. Lancz makes us learn
| good manners."
Dara Lieberman feels,
| Friends are special at Hillel."
Rachel Shalett "feels at
I home."
Jocelyn Lewis said, "You get a
lot of attention and you get
awards at the end of the week for
| being the best workers."
For each student, "work" is a
serious business. A favorite sit-
ting place is the "Magic Chair."
The "Magic Chair" is available
for sitting in during those times
when a student is experiencing
[difficulty with an assignment.
Mrs. Lancz is signaled by this
navorite sitting place that a stu-
dent wants additional instruction
or needs reinforcement.
Individualization is part of the
Hillel School philosophy, and be-
cause classes are small, each stu-
dent s potential can be explored
a warm and caring environ-
ment.
Hillel Parent Riclri Lewis
stated that this "warm personal
atmosphere" helps develop a
K P-'sitive Jewish identifica-
tion by the children.

received during this period, the
foundation received one tract of
real estate valued at $173,000;
another parcel of real estate
valued at $51.000; an interest in a
real estate partnership valued at
approximately $75,000; and
marketable securities (recently
rendered liquid) totalling ap-
proximately $65,000. Altogether
eight new "Funds" were
established on TOP's books,
including a new "Field of Interest
Fund" to aid the Holocaust
Resource and Education Center
in Orlando.
Looking back at the Founda-
tions first two full years of
operation (TOP opened for
business in all three communities
in January, 1981) it has received
a total of $1.5 million worth of
gifts (this figure does not include
income earned from investment
|or charitable grants and alloca-
tions). In addition it is estimated
that in all three communities
deferred gifts have been
generated in the form of bequests
in excess of $1.5 million dollars.
Although no new current gifts
were secured for the benefit of
Tampa during the Thanksgiving
to New Year's rush, new
"deferred" gifts were developed
in the form of bequests in wills
with an estimated value of
$200,000.
Tampa has consistently been
the leading community of the
three participating Federations
in the area of developing gifts
through bequests or interests in
truata.
While being at the forefront
in the area of deferred gift
development, Tampa is all
but off the charta in the
development of current gifts.
Orlando and Pinellas County
have already tasted some of the
fruits from the seeds that were
planted, on their behalf, in the
form of grants back into the
communities to provide for new
programs for the elderly; JCC
Camp Scholarships; Scholarships
for local students to participate
in the high school in Israel
program; direct grants to af-
filiated agencies and synagogues;
and as a supplement to the
annual campaign. All of this has
been accomplished while having
the principal of moat of the
component "Funds" intact.
. In order for the endowment
fund program, operated through
the TOP Jewish Foundation, to
give much needed sustenance to
Tampa, more current seeds must
be planted. There are many crea-
tive ways to participate in the
endowment fund program that
can foster your particular
charitable and philanthropic
interests in your Jewish com-
munity.
To learn more about what the
endowment program can do for
you and your community, you

Rabbi Wine to Speak
February 8th
Humanistic Judaism, a new
expression of Judaism will make
its debut in the Gulf Coast Area
on February 8.
A special program about the
ideas and practices of Huma-
nistic Judaism will be presented
by Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine, leader
of the Birmingham Temple,
Farmington Hills, Michigan, the
first major Humanistic Temple in
America. Rabbi Wine is the
founder of the Society for
Humanistic Judaism, which was
created 14 years ago to promote
the growth of a vital Jewish
Humanism.
Paul and Marcia Himelhoch,
former members of Rabbi Wine's
congregation in Detroit now
living in Clearwater have
arranged for Rabbi Wine to
speak.
Followers of Humanistic
Judaism consider it to be the fifth
alternative in Judaism joining
the Orthodox, Conservative,
Reform and Recon struct ion is t
movements.
Humanistic Judaism declares
that reason, rathen than faith, is
the source of truth and that
human intelligence and ex-
perience are capable of guiding
our destiny. It affirms that Jew-
ish identity has humanistic
value.
The Society for Humanistic
Judaism publishes educational,
inspirational and ceremonial
materials for the enrichment of
Humanistic Jews. It also
organizes Humanistic Jewish
groups whether congregations or
Society chapters, in communities
throughout the world.
When Paul and Marcia Himel-
hoch and their three children
moved from the suburbs of
Detroit to Clearwater, it was with
full knowledge that there was no
Humanistic Jewish group in the
area. According to them, "We
were naive and felt we would be
able to adjust to a traditional
concept of Judaism."
Such was not to be the case
even though Marcia, a speech-
pathologist for Pinellas County
Schools was raised in a conserva-
tive-Orthodox home and her
husband, a CPA, has a reform
background. "We immediately
recognized in order to make our
adjustment to this area complete
we would have to create a
Humanistic Society or Congre-
gation in this area."
Paul Himelhoch spent five
years in Jewish Education in
Detroit. He was Executive
Director of the Hillel Day School
in Detroit and assistant admins-

WHAT IS
HUMANISTIC JUDAISM?
These are some of Humanistic
Judaism's views according to
Rabbi Sherwin T. Wine.
Humanistic Judaism is a
philosophy of life. It seeks to
integrate the value of Jewish
identity with a belief in the value
of human reason and human
power.
Humanistic Jews believe that
each Jew has the right to create a
meaningful Jewish lifestyle free
from supernatural authority and
imposed tradition.
Humanistic Jews believe that j
the goal of life is personal dignity
and self-esteem.
Humanistic Jews believe that
the secular roots of Jewish life are
as important as the religious
ones.
Humanistic Jews believe that
the survival of the Jewish people
needs a reconciliation between
science, personal autonomy and
Jewish loyalty.
FREEDOM FROM
SUPERNATURAL
AUTHORITY
Theistic religions assert that
the ultimate source of wisdom
and of the power of the solution
to human problems is found
outside of people in a super-
natural realm. Humanistic
philosophy affirms that
knowledge and power come from
people and from the nature in
which they live.
DIGNITY
AND SELF-ESTEEM
Life is worthwhile when each
person sees themself as wor-
thwhile. Self-respect is distinct
from happiness. Happiness is less
the goal of life than the con-
sequence of having attained it.
Self-respect is dependent upon
autonomy. The autonomous
person feels that she-he is
responsible for the basic direction
of his-her own life and that no one
else has the right to usurp that
responsibility. Autonomy does
not mean that each person is
individually self-sufficient.
Healthy dependence is horizontal
rather than vertical.
SECULAR JEWISH ROOTS
Judaism is an ethnic culture. It
did not fall from heaven. It was
not invented by a divine spokes-
person. It was created by the
Jewish people. It was molded by
Jewish experience. Holidays are
responses to human events-
Ceremonies are celebrations of
human development. Music and
literature are the expressions of
human needs.
HOW DO HUMANISTIC
JEWS CELEBRATE
HOLIDAYS
AND CEREMONIES
The Jewish people is an ex-
tended family whose shared
history, memories and destiny
are commemorated in beautiful
holiday celebrations.
For example, Rabbi Sherwin T.
Wine, world leader of Humanistic
Judaism, combines honesty and
poetry in a new approach to the
celebration of Rosh Hashana and
Yom Kippur. The contemporary
liturgical style of this celebration
enhances the modern secular
person's observances of the two
most significant holidays in the
Jewish calendar.
Rosh Hashana and Yom
Kippur which begin the Jewish
year allows Jews to review and
renew thei- Jewish commitments.
A book is provided which offers
two complete series of High
Holiday meditations for home or
congregation. Photographs
contribute to the message of the
meditations. Songs appear in
Hebrew and English.
Humanistic Jews celebrate
i Pesach from a naturalistic and
historical perspective. In the
Humanistic Haggadah, the
symbols and the story of
Passover are explained. In this
attractive and simple volume the
real story of Passover is told.
The Passover Seder at which
this Haggadah is read provides a
setting of family love and unity
in which all Jews can rededicate
themselves to the ideal of human
freedom.
Humanistic Jews find meaning
in the celebration of life through
the historic Hebrew calendar and
seek to interpret this calendar in
a naturalistic way. The birth of a
child, coming of age (Bar-Bat
Mitzvah and Confirmation),
marriage and even death also
allow the family and community
to reinforce their unity and to
articulate the values that make
life worthwhile.
EDUCATION
Humanistic Jews want to
understand the beliefs and
behavior of their ancestors
without feeling compelled to
agree with the beliefs of the past.
They want their children to
develop their own convictions
honestly on the basis of
knowledge, not indoctrination.
They seek to explore the entire
range of Jewish experience, past
and present and to choose what is
reasonable and useful.
ETHICAL TRAINING
Skills for survival and hap-
piness are not instinctive. They
are acquired. Self-reliance,
cooperation, generosity and
rationality are daily exercises.
They are just as important aa
academic skills.
COMMUNITIES
Humanistic Jewish com-
munities are an expression of the
need for cultural solidarity and
mutual support. A humanistic
Jewish congregation provides
group identity, adult education,
youth education, a setting for the
public celebration of holidays,
life-cycle ceremonies and a
community voice for the
humanistic Jewish point of view.

Dr. Harry Orlinsky, Scholor in Residence
Schaarai Zedek Weekend Feb. 4-5
The Nathan I. Gordon Scholar
in Residence Series at Congrega-
tion Schaarai Zedek will feature
Dr. Harry Orlinsky, Professor
Emeritus of Bible, Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of Re-
ligion, Feb. 4-5.
Dr. Orlinsky will speak at
Shabbat Services Friday evening
on "Telling It Like It Was." This
lecture is designed to explain the
"dangerous" world of engaging
in Torah translating employing
both Dr. Orlinsky's credentials
and anecdotes collected along the
way.
Saturday will begin with Shab-
bat Morning services at 9:30 a.m.
and continue with topics such as:
The meaning of Adonai Echad,
Did God create the universe?,
How the Bible deals with women
and Virgin births and other
matters where Jewish and other
translations differ.
Lunch will be served at 12:30
p.m. followed by a continuation
of study and the afternoon will
end with Havdalah services.
Dr. Orlinsky is one of the
world's outstanding Bible
scholars. He initiated the New
Jewish Version of the Bible; hit
valuable Notes on the New
Translation of the Torah was
published by the Jewish Publi-
cation Society in 1970. Dr. Orlin-
sky is the first Jewish scholar
invited to take part in an author-
ized Christian translation of the.
Bible and is the sole Jewish
member of the 22-member com-
mittee which produced, in 1952,
the Revised Standard Version of
the Old Testament. He is cur-
rently active in work on the new
edition of this official Protestant
Bible.
Born in Canada. Dr. Orlinsky
came to the United States in 1931
and became a naturalized citizen
in 1938. He received his BA from
the University of Toronto in 1931
and did graduate work at the
University of Pennsylvania,
1931-35. In 1935, he received his
PhD from Dropsie College, serv-
ing during this time as a fellow at
both Dropsie College and at the
University of Pennsylvania. Dr.
Orlinsky was also a fellow at the
American School of Oriental Re-
search and at the Hebrew
University, both in Jerusalem,
1935-36.
Dr. Orlinsky was professor of
Biblical literature at Baltimore
Hebrew College, 1936-43. Since
then he has been on the faculty of
the New York School of the
College-Institute for over 35
years. In addition, he has partici-
pated as a lecturer or visiting
professor at numerous academic
institutions; among them are the
New School for Social Research,
1947-49; Dropsie College, the
summers of 1951, 1953, 1955;
Brandeis University, the sum-
mers of 1959, 1960; Hebrew
University, 1962; Graduate
Theological Union (Berkeley),
1969.
Dr. Orlinsky has been ex-
tremely active over the years as
an author and editor. In 1954, he
wrote Ancient Israel, published
by Cornell University Press.
Scholars have considered this the
best short history of the nation
available and it has been trans-
lated into four languages.
Dr. Orlinsky was founder and
president of the American
Friends of the Israel Exploration
Society (1951), of the Interna-
tional Organization for Sep-
tuagint and Cognate Studies
(1968); he is now honorary presi-
dent of both. He has also been
president of the Society of Bib-
lical Literature (1969-70) and re-
ceived their Centennial Award for
Outstanding Biblical Scholarship
in 1980.
Dr. Orlinsky has received
honorary degrees from Johns
Hopkins University in 1972 and
from Spertus College in 1979.
Johns Hopkins established the
Harry M. Orlinsky Institute of
Biblical and Archaeological Re-
search in 1979 in his honor; and
this past year, the Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of Re-
ligion has decided to publish a
Festschrift (an academic sym-
posium) in his honor.
Synagogue Destroyed by Fire
Has Already Begun Rebuilding
DETROIT (JTA, -
Congregation Beth Abra-
ham Hillel Moses is the
suburban community of
West Bloomfield has al-
ready begun its rebuilding
efforts to reconstruct the
sanctuary, social hall and
two kitchens destroyed by
fire last week.
The congregation will open an
office in the largely-spared school
wing and expects to move its He-
brew classes back into the refur-
bished school wing within two
weeks. In the meantime, weekday
afternoon and Sunday classes
will be held at a public elemen-
tary school one mile away.
Daily minyanim will be held in
the home of a member of the con-
gregation or in the home of Rabbi
A. Irving Schnipper until the
school wing is ready. The congre-
gation will hold Sabbath services
at the nearby First Church of
Christ Scientists until their sanc-
tuary is rebuilt.
SYNAGOGUE president Nat
Fishman told the congregation
that the synagogue has received
an outpouring of donations from
the Detroit area's Jewish and
non-Jewish communities. Area
synagogues are providing prayer
shawls and prayer books, and ar-
ranging to host functions. Fish-
man said that Beth Abraham
Hillel Moses plans to be back in
its own sanctuary in time for the
High Holidays next September.*
Five Torah scrolls were de-
stroyed in the fire, but fire-fight-
ers were able to save six large
Torahs and three small ones from
the synagogue's small chapel.
With the aid of fire fighters,
Schnipper entered his smokey
but unscarred office during the
fire to rescue a Torah he had in-
herited from an uncle.

Sharon returned last Fri-
day from his four-day offi-
cial visit to Zaire after sign-
ing a five-year development
and military aid agreement
with President Mobutu
SeseSeko.
Sharon stressed on his return.
that there was no danger that Is-
raeli soldiers would become in-
volved in the internal struggles of
Zaire or in any wars in Africa.
"We hope that by strengthening
the forces of President Mobutu it
will serve as a deterrent and'
bring about peace" in Africa, the
Defense Minister said.
ACCORDING TO Sharon, Is-
rael's relations with Zaire have
been strengthened greatly since
he visited Kinshasa secretly a
year ago. Zaire restored diplo-
matic relations with Israel last
year. Sharon said that Zaire has
already purchased "millions of
dollars worth of military equip-
ment" from Israel "and paid for
it promptly."
But "despite the economic ad-
vantage, this is not our main
aim," Sharon said. "Rather, it is
the means of strengthening Isra-
el's foreign standing in the world
and bringing it out of isolation."
Sharon said the weaponry
already sold to Zaire was not
booty captured during the war in
Lebanon last summer but equip-
ment captured in earlier wars and
repaired and up-dated for use bv
the Israel army. According to
^porters who accompanied
Sharon on his visit,

Likud Would Beat Navon-Weizman
By DAVID LANDAU
.JERUSALEM (JTA) Likud
Uuld win mow votes than any other
Wle party in new Knesset elections in
[Jich the Labor Party list was headed
iy President Yitzhak Navon, and a new
irty headed by former Defense Minister
_zer Weizman was also in the contest,
iccording to the latest public opinion
oUhere.
Likud would still fall short of a
najority in the 120-member Knesset,
but it would nevertheless be in a more
dvantageous position than its rivals to
in a governing coalition, according to
..j-a Shemer, leading pollster of the
Jodiin Ezrachi organization which con-
Eucted the survey for the Jerusalem
Post.
THE FINDINGS based on a sampling
k nearly 2,000 Israelis of voting age,
khowed that Likud would lose three seats
i the Labor Alignment if Navon headed
Israelis Downcast
that list and four seats to a centrist party
headed by Weizman. In such an election,
the results would be, according to
Shemer:
Likud, 62; Labor, 42; National Re-
ligious Party, 5; Aguda Israel, 4; Weiz-
man's party, 4; Tami, 3; Civil Rights
Movement (now aligned with Labor), 2;
Shinui, 2; Tehiya, 2; Rakah (Com-
munist)^.
An earlier poll by Shemer, in which
neither Navon nor Weizman was among
the candidates, showed 57 seats for
Likud to 39 for Labor.
"The involvement of new faces in
politics at this time would not cause an
immediate upheaval," Shemer wrote.
"However, they do have voting appeal
. Although Likud retains its primacy
in the capacity to form a coalition, the
starting point of the alternative coalition
forces appears to be fairly advan-
tageous."
See Worsening Relations With U.S.
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM (JTA) Israeli government sources
ere markedly downbeat Sunday as U.S. special envoy
hilip Habib returned here from weekend trips to
ibanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. The sources, speaking
er a lengthy Cabinet debate, seemed to expect a
orsening of relations with the U.S. in light of Habib's
ilure to make progress over Lebanon.
and that Maj. Saad Haddad's
militia have a built-in role in poli-
cing the area; and Israel's desire
for maximum normalization with
Lebanon.
Reports from Beirut over the
weekend said Habib had obtained
Lebanese support for a proposal
that American personnel man the
projected warning stations in the
south. Israel, however, rejects
this solution, according to
sources here.
ON UNIFIL'S future role, the
Israeli sources said, Habib was
deliberately vague. leaving
details to be worked out in nego-
tiations. But the American envoy
was firm in the view that
UNrFIL's continued presence
was necessary in the south to
bolster the Lebanese army's
efforts to keep the peace and keep
the area terrorist-free.
In this. Habib said, he was
reflecting the Lebanese own
conviction that, with their army
still in an early stage of recons-
truction, they need UNIFIL's
The sources expected the
IU.S. to publicly blame Is-
rael for the stalemate on the
I withdrawal of Israeli forces
and negotiation package in
Lebanon. They said they
detected signs of this trend
I in recent media leaks
[emanating from
[Washington.
THIS DOWNBEAT view was
Ittpressed as Habib and his
[deputy. Morris Draper, were
[scheduled to meet with Premier
|Menachi-m Begin and other
land] officials for a summation
Inf Habib's efforts so far to get the
Israeli-Lebanon talks off dead

There is a feeling in Israeli
[government circles that Israeli

anon are fundamentally

[reasons connected with its poli-
ifij viva-vis the wider Arab

help.
Israeli sources maintain,
however, that UNIFIL would
hinder rather than help in
keeping the security zone of
southern Lebanon free of
terrorists. The Israelis cite past
experiences involving UNIFIL,
which has been in place since
1978, which, they say, often
showed the UN force was lax
towards the Palestine Liberation
Organization and ineffective in
preventing incursions.
UN officials, in private con-
versations, hotly dispute these
allegations. They claim there
were scores, perhaps hundreds of
incidents in which UNIFIL had
acted to prevent PLO incursions
that might have reached the
Israeli border. And they cite cur-
rent occasional terrorist acts
within the I DF-controlled areas
of Lebanon to prove that no
security system can be totally
effective in a thickly populated
area.
REGARDING normalization,
Habib's position during the talks
last week was, according to the
Israeli sources, that broad princi-
ples be agreed upon now, such as
the principle of open borders, but
detailed arrangements should be
made only after the withdrawal of
IDF and other foreign forces
from Lebanon. Israel wants the
details determined before the
withdrawal.

American officials argue that
this is not at all the case, but
rather that Lebanon itself cannot
*fee to the political and other
mands that Israel is making of
* because of Arab world pres-
sures and because of the delicate
situation within the country
itself.
AT THE end of Habib's week-
wig efforts here, in intensive
with Foreign Minister
mzhak Samir and other Israeli
officials to speed up the nego-
tn and withdrawal process,
[well sources said the U.S.
envoy has made no real progress.

And Won't Challenge Begin
JERUSALEM (JTA) A consensus is growing in
Israel that President Yitzhak Navon will not seek a
second term in office when his incumbency expires later
this year but that he will also not immediately reenter
partisan politics. Navon, who completed a successful 10-
day visit to the U.S. (luring which he met with President
Reagan and other top Administration officials, has said
he would announce his future plans next month.
HAARETZ REPORTED that in a conversation with
intellectuals at author Eke Wiesel's New York home,
Navon declared, "There are stories in my belly that are
crying, let us out." The President has said in the past that
when he ends his office he would "impose upon himself" a
cooling-off period before returning to active politics.
This has been taken in some Israeli circles to mean that
Navon, a former Labor Party MK, does not intend to
challenge Premier Menachem Begin in early elections.

Brightening The Darkness Lackey'Gemayal s,lub
By LESLIE KLINEM AN
UJA Special Correspondent
This story is about the Israel
Special Fund, part of the Tampa
Jewish Federation-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign currently in
progress.
JERUSALEM. ISRAEL -
For the first four years of her life,
Sara's world was a corner, a rag
doll her only company. Ignored
by seven brothers and sisters,
barely acknowledged by her
mother, like a small, frightened
animal, Sara sat, sightless, alone.
Yossi's mother died in a car ac-
cident when he was a baby,
leaving nine children behind.
Yossi was born blind. His father
had no use for an "imperfect"
child.
Avi, a teenager, knew for some
time that his advancing blind-
ness would one day be final and
irrevocable, but it's a fact of life
he found extremely difficult to
accept and deal with. How can
you give up the sky?
Today, Sara is not alone. Yossi
has found a home where he is
wanted. And Avi is beginning to
understand that the gathering
darkness need not leave him
helpless.
They are among 50 children
suffering from total, partial or
advancing blindness who are
living and learning to help them-
selves at the Jewish Institute for
the Blind in Kiryat Moshe, Jeru-
salem supported in part by
funds from the United Jewish
Appeal 1983 Israel Special Fund.
Like many of their resident
classmates, Sara and Yossi and
Avi have more to overcome than
blindness. Sara is retarded and
has autistic tendencies. Yossi has
speech and physical coordination
difficulties. Avi entered the In-
stitute in a state of severe
anxiety and depression.
But all the children who find
their way to the Institute are
being actively and lovingly
helped to overcome all handicaps
and to realize their potential for
contributing to Israeli society.
Along with his completely
blind classmates, Avi is learning
to read and write in Braille, to
operate special typewriters and
to use a comprehensive Braille li-
brary ; a new world opening up to
him as the world of sight closes
down. Extensive counseling and
psychological services have
softened the acuteness of his de-
pression.
Sports and music activities,
combined with patient speech
therapy, have strengthened
Yossi's coordination and sense of
self. Judo instruction has given
him a feeling of control and
confidence. He is learning car-
pentry, ceramis and weaving and
will be well trained to make a
living in the outside world.
Sara has no time to sit apart
and never feeels alone now. Un-
certainty and loneliness fade in
the face of group learning experi-
ences, individual grooming help
and summer camp fun. There is
no stigma of retardation in her
slow movements during the
sewing and home economics
classes; each newly learned
motor skill is a landmark
triumph.
Mobility training is the key to
progress for the Institute's blind
children. Today, Dov, who has
been blind from birth and has
taken unaided steps only within
the confines of the Institute,
faces a crucial test. His "lesson"
is to walk to the corner grocery
store and to buy himself any
candy he wants a wonderful
treat for any eight year-old.
He is learning to guide himself
with the white cane of the blind.
His instructor follows at a
discreet distance, flinching with
each obstacle encountered, but
allowing the boy to find his way
and his satisfaction for himself.
Dov's world is expanding,
brightening the darkness.
The 50 children living and
learning full-time at the Jewish
Institute for the Blind are excep-
tions to the prevailing rehabilita-
tion pattern in Israel. Most
handicapped children in the
Jewish state today live and are
cared for within their communi-
ties, if at all possible. Educators
believe this process of "main-
streaming" is more beneficial be-
cause it allows the children to
lead as normal a life as they can.
Blind children who are main-
streamed have special tutors who
begin instructing them in basic
life skills at an early age. Special
kindergartens are available to
them in some areas, and an in-
creasing number are being ac-
commodated in regular neighbor-
hood schools.
Many who live at home in and
around Jerusalem come to the
Institute in the afternoon for
special after-school instruction in
dealing with their individual
I needs. The Institute also offers,
evening courses for blind adults,
helping them develop new skills
and experiences. Many richly
contributory lives have been
fashioned by these part-time pro-
grams.
But for the Saras and the Yoa-
sis, the Avis and the Dovs -
thbse who are not wanted at
home, who have additional
physical or emotional problems,
who need intensive individual
training, or whose homes are in
outlying areas where adequate
facilities are not available the
brightness in Kiryat Moshe that
dispels darkness is the full-time
answer.
Life at the Institute is full for
these small souls full of learn-
ing, hope and warmth They are
valued and appreciated for what
they are. They are taught and en-
couraged to be whatever they can
become. Their every resource is
developed. They learn to live in
spite of their handicaps.
They are what is special about
the Israel Special Fund.
Israel at Beirut Party
TEL AVIV (ZINS) The Israel morning ^
Ha'areU, cites an example of the attitude adopted by i
newly elected President of Lebanon, Amin Gemayal. 1
newspaper article describee how, after the last Israeli M
dier had left Beirut, Gemayel arranged a celebration]
mark the unification of both sectors of the city.
EVERYONE WAS invited to this celebration -
U.S. Marines, the French and Italian army personnel|
everyone, in fact, with the exception of the Israelii
the same army that had paid such a heavy price in I
in the Lebanon war. Ha'areU asks, who was respom
for the unification of Beirut? The U.S. Marines?
French? The Italians? No. This was done by the It
army.
However, in marking the unification of Beirut, the I
reel is were boycotted and not a word was said about I
part in liberating the city. As matters stand, the n.
paper writes, this attitude will probably continue into j
future. "The lackey has done his thing; the lackey
now be excused."
Franco-Israeli Cultural
Negotiations Won't Cham
Basic French Policy
PARIS (JTA) France said that the resumpt
of Franco-Israeli negotiations on cultural matters d
not imply any change in France's basic policy and
demand for an immediate withdrawal of Israeli for
form Lebanon. This statement was issued as the Fi
Israeli cultural-commission met in Jerusalem to n<
a new cultural agreement between the two states.
The commission was initially scheduled to meet
June, but France postponed its session because of the'
in Lebanon. The commission is to draw up a new two-
agreement which will provide for cultural and art
exchanges, academic cooperation and the teaching
French and Hebrew in the two countries.
