Ambassador Tekoah is ex-
pected to speak about the current
government policies in Israel and
as a member of the Labor Party
will present his own perspective
to current events. His association
with the Israeli Foreign Service
dates from the inception of the
State of Israel. He served with
the Israeli delegation to the
United Nations General Assem-
bly in 1948 and then held the
posts of Deputy Legal Advisor to
the Ministry for Foreign Affairs,
Legal Advisor to the Israel
Defence Forces on Armistice Af-
fairs, and Director of Armistice
Affairs. In the latter capacity, he
headed from 1954-58 Israel's del-
egations to Mixed Armistice
Commissions in Egypt, Lebanon,
Jordan and Syria.
In 1958, he was appointed
Deputy Permanent Representa-
tive of Israel to the United
Nations with the rank of Minister
Plenipontentiary, and from May
1959 was Acting Permanent Rep-
resentative. Tekoah served as
Ambassador of Israel of Brazil
from 1960-62 and as Ambassador
to the Union of Soviet Socialist
Republics from 1962-65.
In 1966, he was appointed As-
sistant Director-General of the
Ministry for Foreign Affairs. He
assumed his post as Permanent

tions in January 1968. In July of
1975, he was appointed President
of Ben Gurion University. He
served in this position until July
1981. He is presently Chancellor
of the University.

ner on behalf of the 1983 Tampa
Jewish Federation-United Jewish
Appeal Campaign will set the
pace for the entire campaign,
according to Federation officials.
The response received that
evening will forecast the success
of the 1983 campaign, and it is
expected to exceed 1982 results
for the regular campaign and the
Israel Special Fund.

Sponsored by the Kinneret Founda-

and support projects in the arts, Segal
and the Hot Frogs travelled throughout
the country, including spending some 13
hours in Lebanon visiting front line

"It was a profound experience for me,"
Segal admits. "I am more committed

at a special screening of one of his films
at the new Jerusalem Cinematique. A
highlight of the trip was jamming at the
Tel Aviv Hilton with Yitzhak Perlman,
who joined the Hot Frogs in an im-

Segal and the Hot Frogs also per-
formed for severely-wounded soldiers
and their families at a special event
sponsored by the association of severely
wounded soldiers in the presence of
Prime Minister Menachem Begin.
Through its Visiting Artists Project,
the Kinneret Foundation has brought to
Israel such notables as Paul Simon,
Roberta Flack, Chick Correa, Elizabeth
Swados and Lalo Schifrin. The Founda-
tion also initiated and produced the Is-
rael Philharmonic's first jazz series and
Israel's international jazz festival.
The nomination of
Moshe Arens as Defense
Minister, replacing Ariel
Sharon, was a virtual cer-
tainty of approval this
week. Arens, Israel's Am-
bassador to the U.S. for the
past year, had agreed to
serve, Premier Menachem
Begins personal aide,
Yehiel Kadishai, told re-
porters, and that was that.
The announcement came sev-
eral hours before the Knesset was
to vote on the Cabinet changes
arising from Sharon's resignation
of the defense portfolio which
took effect Tuesday. Begin will
assume the responsibilities of
Defense Minister until Arens
returns from Washington and is
formally installed.
LEADERS OF Likud's Liberal
Party wing reportedly told Begin
they would back the appointment
of Arens without reservations.
He had the support of Herat
whose hard-line views he shares,
although he is not associated
with any specific trend in the
Herat Party.
The opposition Labor Align-
ments said it would take a "wait-
and-see" approach toward Arens.
Begin's coalition partner, the
ultra rightwing Tehiya, which
strongly opposed the resignation
of Sharon, indicated approval of
Arens because as a Knesset
member he had voted against the
Camp David accords and the
peace treaty with Egypt in 1978
and 1979.
Moshe Arens
Arens, 58, chaired the Knes-
set's Foreign Affairs and Defense
Committee before he was named
Ambassador to the U.S. He had
been Begin's first choice for De-
fense Minister after Ezer Weiz-
man resigned in 1981 but rejected
that post at the time because of
his stand against the Camp Da-
vid approach to the peace
process. He has since indicated

formal leave of the Defense Min-

ceremony. Army officers and se-

surprise at the extensive
publicity arrangements for what

Sharon left office on a defiant
note. He strongly defended his
policies during his 19 month
tenure as Defense Minister. He
said he had been determined to
head a powerful deterrent force
which he would not hesitate to
use under certain circumstances.
AMONG THE circumstances
he enumerated were the deploy-
ment of Iraqi troops in Jordan,
an Egyptian violation of the mili-
tary clauses of the peace treaty
^^ which, he said, wouki trigger Is-
rael's reoccupation of Sinai, or
the presence of nuclear weapons
in enemy hands.
Sharon told those assembled to
bid him farewell that he was not
sure such a strong policy of de-
terrence was still possible, given
the prevailing atmosphere in the
country. Although ha said
nothing specific, ha was clearly
referring to what he regards as
the influence of doveiah elements
in the army and in the country as
a whole.

Visit Brothers until the 12th of March and listen to a new group, the
Joanne Samson Group. Joanne is joined by Merv Stone on alto and
tenor sax, Kurt Snider on drums and Mike Evans on bass. Joanne is
the sinner, songwriter and keyboard player of the group. They com-
bined for a soon to be released record (Reaching My Mind), liked the
results so well, they decided to make a group of it. (In case you don't
recognize her, Joanne is the former Joanne Steinberg, daughter of
Judge Ralph and Marlene Steinberg.)

Enter Moshe Arens
From our own point of view, the more
remarkable occurrence last week
followed the report, perhaps over-
shadowing the report itself. And that
was the resignation of Defense Minister
Ariel Sharon.
If we are at all comforted by the
resignation, it is for the reason that an
even more eloquent spokesman for
Israel's best interests, Moshe Arens,
now takes his place. Apart from this, we
take little comfort from the resignation.
There are those who have criticized Gen.
Sharon for his alleged "megalomania."
But so legendary a figure, whose con-
tributions to the cause of his country
both on the battlefield and off it are
simply not to be diminished by the
picayune criticisms of the softhearted,
was nevertheless bound to be attacked in
this way. And, doubtless, in others as
Exit then, for the moment, Ariel
Sharon. Enter Minister of Defense
Arens. What can we expect? Well, for
one thing, a difference in the tone of
diplomatic performance. Certainly,
Arens will be more velvety in spirit.
But let that velvet not confuse anyone,
least of all the Reagan Administration
which, immediately after the publication
of the commission of inquiry report,
speculated that the report and the
possible departure of the Begin
government in toto might mean
revivification of his "peace initiative" of
last Sept. 1.
Behind Arens' velvet lurks a fist of
iron. For who more eloquently than
Arens rejected the Camp David accord
even when Prime Minister Begin signed
it? Although these days Arens says that
the accord is a fait accompli and that he
is prepared to live by it, his initial
reaction to that disaster foretells a
toughness on Judea and Samaria that
minimally matches Begin's own.
And that should sound the warning to
those prepared to carve Israel up even
further for "peace in our time" to lay
their carving knives down.
'Now you see 'em, now you don't.
No Change in '82
For Rights in Saudi Arabia, Jordan
u .uvin rpirnMAN began "threatening leading Jew-
By DAVID FRIEDMAN fa refuseniks' with impnaon-
WAQHINfiTnN n*"1 if they continue to maintain
WASHINUIUiN conUcts with foreign diplomats,
(JTA) The human rights journalists and tourists."
The report criticizes the condi-
tions of Soviet prisons and
particularly notes that Anatoly
Sharansky suited a hunger
strike last September "to protest
the refusal of Soviet authorities
to allow him contact with the
outside world."
There have been numerous
reports of instances of discri-
mination against Jews, such as
the denial of access to higher
education and the professions,
and at least 11 cases of the
revocation of higher degrees of
Jews have occurred, the report
IT ADDS that this means the
end of a career and usually the
loss of a job and income.
"Ocasional attacks on Zionism in
the media appear in ten ted to
arouse anti-Semitic feelings
among the population," the
report adds.
The report notes that
emigration procedures from the
USSR are "cumbersome and
extensive." It also notes that
only 2,688 Jews were granted
situation in Jordan and
Saudi Arabia did not
undergo any change in
1982, according to Elliott
Abrams, Assistant Secre-
tary of State for Human
Rights and Humanitarian
Affairs. Abrams was com-
menting by way of ex-
plaining the 1,323-page
State Department's annual
report on the human rights
situation throughout the
world which was made
public here.
The report depicts Jordan as a
constitutional monarchy in which
King Hussein has all the power.
It notes that because of tension
between Palestinian refugees and
"native trans-Jordanians," the
country has been under martial
law since 1970. "The government
resorts to authoritarian measures
sparingly, however," the report
SAUDI ARABIA is described
as "a traditional family monar-
chy" in which "the legitimacy of
the regime rests upon its adher-
ence to and defense of Islam,
particularly the austere Saudi
interpretation of the Sunni
tradition." Saudi's practices are
viewed in light of this ex-
planation and situations which
might be seen as abuses else-
where are treated benignly in the
Egypt is described as a
republic with "a strong presi-
dency." While it is not "a pure
parliamentary democracy" since
President Hosni Mubarak's
National Democratic Party has
an overwhelming majority in
Parliament, "individual members
can and do sharply criticize the
regime," according lo the report.
The report credits Mubarak
with loosening restrictions
imposed by his predecessor,
Anwar Sadat allowing op-
position papers to publish and
freeing prisoners but notes
that "the authorities have shown
a readiness to arrest and im-
prison Islamic extremists whom
they regard as an immediate
Iranian-style threat to Egyptian
society and government."
WHILE EGYPT is an Islamic
state, freedom of religion is
allowed, the report points out.
"Egypt's tiny Jewish community
is not harassed."
But, in Iraq, where the report
says it is believed there are fewer
than 300 Jews, "the extent of the
community's religious activity
and other liberties is not known."
In Syria, the Jewish community
of some 3,500-4,000 people
"exists under close governmental
scrutiny and is denied political
participation. However, Jewish
religious practices are observed
without harassment."
Abrams said that conditions
have also worsened in the Soviet
Union and East Europe. He said
it is "very clear" that if Rumania
goes ahead with its education tax
on would-be emigrants, the U.S.
can no longer extend most
favored nation status to it. He
said the Administration would
have no choice since U.S. law
prohibits MFN to countries res-
tricting emigration.
puty spokesman Alan Romberg
said that the Rumanian govern-
ment has not confirmed that it
has imposed the tax. But he said

now officially JWB). The prime
purpose of the group is the verifi-
cation of credentials of rabbis in
the military and the endorsement
of lay leadership where there are
no rabbis.
"The military does not certify
who is and is not a rabbi," Col.
Geller stressed. "This com-
mission serves as the official
advisory board to the office of the
Chief of Chaplains."
Today the Air Force counts
.three full colonels among the 12
rabbis in the Air Force Chaplain-
cy. A very high percentage! In
the other branches you will find
13 rabbis in the Navy and 28 in
the Army. "Remember, today's
military is all volunteer," Col
Geller said, "And therefore the
numbers are low." He estimated
that among the 12 rabbis eight
are Reform, two are Conservative
and two are Orthodox. Among
the military academies, only one,
the Air Force Academy, has a
rabbi on the base itself.
In explaining the career dif-
ferences between a pulpit rabbi
and a military rabbi, Col. Geller
explained, "While the rabbinate
serves the Jewish community, a
military rabbi serves all faiths.
The opportunities for interfaith
work are far greater than in a
synagogue." Chaplain Geller, we
must point out, has four Cha-
plains Awards for interfaith work
among his medals.
Other aspects of the military
rabbinate, as pointed out by
Rabbi Geller, include the serving
of both the military and civilian
population. "Army bases art
usually near large population
centers. Air Force bases are
usually in more isolated areas.
The rabbi frequently becomes the
area rabbi. The area becomes
rather large sometimes.
Currently the Jewish chaplain in
Greece covers all Turkey and
Spain in addition to Greece," Col.
Geller explained. While stationed
at Korat Royal Thai AFB,
Thailand, Rabbi Geller was the
circuit riding rabbi for all
The fact that bases are often
isolated brings up another aspect
of the JWB commission on
Jewish Chaplaincy's work:
developing education materials
for use where there is no full
religious instruction program for
the children of military person-
What is the major problem
facing the chaplaincy today?
Chaplain Geller replied that one
of the main areas of concern is the
morality of nuclear weapons. The
Fate Of The Earth by Jonathan
Schell was recently given to all
generals and now an article
distributed by the American
Jewish Committee entitled
"Church-Synagogue Views Of
Nuclear Weapons" is being
discussed and circulated.
Speaking personally, we left
our meeting with Colonel,
Chaplain. Rabbi Geller comforted
that within the military these
were issues being discussed.

To Lift Taxes
nance Minister Yoram Aridor will
ask South Africa for more eco-
nomic aid when he visits Pretoria

a year ago. Aridor is also ex-
pected to request the expansion
of fishing rights for Israeli boats
in South African waters. Most of
the issues to be discussed are
part of existing agreements
which Israel and South Africa
signed five years ago.

Jewish involvement in the lifeline
of Martin Luther King's cam-
paign for human dignity was
signal. Through it all, it was the
vision and awesome dynamism of
Dr. King himself that moved
Jews and others beyond them-
The admiration Jews felt for
Dr. King, and the strong histori-
cal affinity of the Jews to the
Black experience, was by no
means one-sided. When he spoke
at the convention of the Union of
American Hebrew Congregations
in Chicago in 1963, King related
his dream to the proven ability of
Jews to transcend discourage-
ment and despair.
In his later writings, the Black
preacher wrote: "The lesson of
Jewish mass involvement in
social and political action and ed-
ucation is worthy of emulation."
King encouraged his own broth-
ers and sisters to become active
politically, as Jews had done, in
order to assure a more equal role
in society.
In 1983, however, it can be
fairly asked what has become of
Dr. King's historic struggle.
DOES THE dream he articu-
lated and shared with so many of
so many differing background
speak to us still? Certainly, the
times are different, the issues
blurred by overriding economic
obsessions. But one is saddened
by those whose recollections of
those urgent and heady days
have diminished into nostalgia.
Not enough youngsters, Black or
white, know much about Martin
Luther King today, and America
in general has fallen into a
resigned non-concern.
That Martin Luther King's
dream of full equality in a free so-
ciety for all Americans remains a
vision too far from realization is
our failure, not his. But because
Jews shared so much of what was
his, they remember him now, on
his birthday, with special warmth
and identification and love.
Synopsis of the Weekly Torah Portion
"Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains"
"And thou shalt hang up the veil under the clasps, and shalt
bring in thither within the veil the ark of the testimony"
TERUMAH The children of Israel were asked for an offering
toward the construction of the Tabernacle and its vessels:
"Gold, silver, and brass: and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and
fine linen, and goats' hair; and rams' skins dyed red, and seal-
skins, and acacia-wood; oil for the light, spices for the anointing
oil, and for the sweet incense; onyx stones, and stones to be set,
for the ephod, and for the breastplate" (Exodus 25.3-7). The ark
was to be made of acacia-wood, covered inside and out with gold.
The table too was to be made of acacia-wood. There were to be a
golden candelabra, a tent of curtains and boards, outer curtains
and inner curtains, and an altar of acacia-wood, covered with
copper. Finally, the construction of court-yard of the Tabernacle
was described.

will appear at Rodeph Sholom
Synagogue on March 20, 1983 at
7:30 p.m. as the solo artist for the
14th Annual Jewish Music Fes-
Mr. Merrill'8 program is quite
varied for the evening. He has in-
cluded selections from Don
Giovani and The Marriage of
Figaro, both by Mozart and three
Hebraic Chants by Rauel. Also
included in the program are many
selections from the Broadway
Stage, not to mention the ever-
popular songs from "Fiddler on
the Roof."
Co-Chairmen of the music fes-
tival, Arline Verkauf and How-
ard Sinsley, are pleased with the
diversification of Merrill's pro-
gram and especially with the
presentations of noted Jewish
composers such as Ravel, Ger-
shwin and Mana-Zucca.
The entire evening will be a
treat for young and old alike. The
14th Annual Jewish Music Fes-
tival looks forward to welcoming

and are tangible symbols of the
spirit of Tzedakah. As Purim fast
approaches, Second Grade Judaic
studies students are busy ready-
ing gifts to exchange as part of a
special Tzedakah emphasis. Re-
membering those who are less
fortunate and thanking those
who are thoughtful is especially
appropriate at this time.
This celebration slated for
Monday, February 28 at 8:30
a.m. at Rodeph Sholom will in-
clude a service with readings of
portions of Megillat Esther and a
presentation thanking God for
saving our ancestors. Invitations
to join the school have been sent
to special invited guests.
During the afternoon a Purim
Shpiel by the Eighth Grade and
by teachers is planned to (amuse)
and entertain. Costumes will be
worn in the afternoon by
students and teachers.
