Sheri Brownstein
Swimming Success is a Mother-Daughter Team Sheri
Brownstein competed in the State meet at Gainesville during
the weekend of Nov. 19. College coaches from all over the
country were there watching the finalists for potential recruits.
An accomplished swimmer in the breaststroke and individual
medley, Sheri is a senior at Plant High School and has already
been approached by several universities offering athletic
scholarships in swimming.
Lynn Brownstein, Sheri's mother, worked as a "stroke and
turn" judge at the State meet. Lynn has been teaching swim-
ming for some 19 yean and is known for her work with bsbies.
She teaches infants, beginning at six-weeks-old, how to save
themselves from drowning. (She also works with adults as s Red
Cross instructor.) Sheri was her first student, learning to float at
five-months-old, and diving and swimming at 14-months-old.
She has been competing since age five. Even though Sheri
suffered a knee injury at 13 and was told to stop, knee therapy
and constant work kept her swimming
Sheri's success at the District Swimming and Diving
Championships at the University of South Florida on Nov. 12,
sent her to the State meet. She placed second in the breast-
stroke (breaking the District record) and first in the 200 in-
dividual medley.
Sheri competed in her first Junior Nationals this summer and
placed 29th in the nation in the breast-stroke. Besides her
swimming accomplishments, Sheri is an honor student and USY
treasurer. ---------

Dora Roth
two reasons: Jews have to
united in the United States and
to take care of their needs here; a
strong American Jewish commu-
nity can be of greater help to
Israel than a weak community.
"From the little I know about
Tampa, I hear the people are very
warm, very helpful and above all,
good Jews which gives me a very
good feeling. I'm not a politician.
For me, the most important value
is that Israel should exist, and we
should do more to make Israel
stronger and a better country to
live in. We Israelis feel we do a lot
toward this, but we can't do it
alone. We need help from Jews all
over the world," Roth concluded.
The luncheon was planned in
behalf of the 1984 Women's Divi-
sion Campaign.
Aides Raised Question
Shamir Was Mum on New Accord
WASHINGTON -
I(JTA) Prime Minister
[Yitzhak Shamir did not
[press for "strategic co-
loperation" with the United
States when he visited
(Washington this week, but
left it to President Reagan
and his aides to raise this
matter.
Highly placed sources said this
approach had been decided upon
in preliminary consultations in
Jerusalem involving Shamir and

Defense Minister Moshe Arens,
who accompanied him.
"It is not for us (Israel) to
press on this matter," the sources
explained. They indicated that
the U.S. was expected to suggest
some elements of "strategic co-
operation," such as the pre-
positioning of strategic supplies
and medical equipment on Israeli
soil. But they cautioned against
exaggerated expectations in this
connection.
THE SOURCES said Shamir
and Arens did a lot of "playing
by ear" since as far as Israel
knew the U.S. itself was still
working out the precise positions
it adopted during the summit
talks. They said Israel for its part
would have wanted to air five
broad issues.
Economic aid, both its scope
and conditions. Israel is striving
to receive as large as possible a
proportion of its American aid in
the form of grants rather than
loans payable at interest.
The high sources said if Is-
rael's hopes are realized in this
sphere "this will enable the econ-
omic recession and the drastic
measures being taken a chance of
succeeding" in restoring econ-
omic health.
Trade. Israel is seeking tariff
concessions and other benefits to
encourage its exports to the U.S.
"For America," the sources said,
" It's a drop in a bucket. For us
it's crucial."
Third World cooperation.
The U.S., too, is interested in
working with Israeli aid projects
to Third World countries. The
high sources insisted that what
was intended was not military aid
but rather agricultural and tech-
nological projects in Africa and
Utin America. In some coun-
tries, they said, it was not conve-
nient (or welcome) for the U.S. to
send in its own experts.
Military aid. Here Arena
submitted detailed requests for
new and modern systama to
counter the rapidly growing Sy-
rian Soviet-supplied armory.
"Strategic cooperation." A
good deal has been rumored and
written about this, but Israeli
aides were cautious. Thay in-
dicated that there are reserva-
tions both in Washington and in
Jerusalem about too dose a
strategic relationship.________
JERUSALEM (JTA)
A prominent American
Jew warned Israel not to
become involved with the
United States on the basis
of mutual interests stem-
ming from the exercise of
power. Rabbi Arthur
Hertzberg, an author, lec-
turer and former President
of the American Jewish
Congress, maintained that
this kind of interest can
change from one day to
another.
"The people in Israel fail to
understand that America loves
Israel not because it is led by
tough leaders but because of the
values that it represents," Hertz-
berg said at a forum organized by
Peace Now and the International
Center for Peace in the Middle
East.
HERTZBERG, a professor of
history at Columbia University
and leader of a Conservative
congregation in Eriglewood, N.J.,
was one of six Jewish leaders
from the U.S. and Europe parti-
cipating in the conference on "the
affect of occupation on the Jew-
ish people." It was moderated by
former Foreign Minister Abba
Eban.
According to Hertzberg, the
majority of American Jews
object to Israel's policy of de
facto annexation of the West
Bank. He said that more and
more Jews in the U.S. opposed
the policies of the Likud-led gov-
ernment. He observed that
whereas in the past supporters of
the Peace Now movement in the
U.S. were castigated as "defeat-
ists," they are no longer stigmat- ,
ized.
Rabbi Hertzberg
Similar views were expressed
by David Susskind of Belgium,
one of the organizers of the
Brussels World Conference on
Soviet Jewry. He said he found it
increasingly difficult to answer
questions by the younger genera-
tion of Jews about Judaism and
Israel, especially the issue of
human rights for the Arabs.
"IT IS customary here (in Is-
rael) to stop people on the street
for security questioning just by
their looks. For me as a Jew, this
is a nightmare. I remember the
not too distant past when one
used to stop other people because
of their looks," Susskind said.
Pointing at the audience which
packed the hall Susskind said,
"Only a few kilometers from here
there is an Arab population under
occupation. Why can't they
gather for a similar political
forum?"

Editorial
An honor has come to a member of our Jewish community
which reflects well on Tampa and Congregation Schaarai Zedek
in particular. At the just concluded 34th Biennial Assembly of
the National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods, Judith Rosen-
kranz was elected a vice president of NFTS.
The Women's Agency for Reform Judaism with over 100,000
\ members, has chosen someone who has shown a consistent love
;. for Judaism and has demonstrated her leadership in both the
:: Jewish and general community. We know her service as one of
I five NFTS vice presidents will continue the leadership she has
already shown in so many endeavors.

A Related Problem
The outcome of the Israeli determination
to do something about their economy
appears to be reflected in this week's talks
between President Reagan and Prime
Minister Shamir. Certainly, the proposed
revised U.S. aid package has its military
vector. But the sweeping away of loans and
the substitution for them of outright
grants, although on a reduced level ($1.275
billion annually in grants as opposed to the
previous $1.7 billion divided equally
between grants and loans) addresses itself
as well to Israel's troubled economy.
There should be a much-improved
capacity to deal with what is by now
Israel's 200 percent annual inflation rate
than there was before, even given that the
aid package stays at the presently -
proposed reduced level. And that is good
news all on its own.

True Meaning of Channkah
By SAMUEL SILVER
AFTER THE unforgettable Six-Day War, a
youngster said, "Mother, I will never disbelieve the
Bible again."
It is hard to discredit miracles if you see one be-
fore your very eyes.
As Chanukah comes back to us again, we feel that
we shall celebrate it this year with extra fervor. We
have always admired the story of the -Maccabees,
but today's "fighting Jews" in Israel have brought
the holiday up to date. They have not only emulated
their ancient predecessors; they have outdone them.
AND YET CHANUKAH and its message are still
urgently needed today. For the way in which the
holiday has been transmitted to us provides an
antidote to jubilation exclusively motivated by suc-
cessful belligerence.
Our sages have always cautioned us not to go all-
out in the Chanukah hoop-la over the military
achievements in the story. They have stressed the
need to understand not only that Judah and his men
fought well but also to prize what they fought for.
And the purpose of their struggle was not to prove
that they could defeat the enemy. It was designed to
establish the principle of religious liberty.
The noblest trait of today's Maccabees in Israel is
their abstention from vindktiveness. Menaced bvi
enemy who promised to exterminate them i
have not sought to humiliate those whom they \
quished. No voice is raised for vengeance. Today]
heroes in Israel seek not the extinction of the foe U*
the removal in the heart of the foe of the evil in
tions which drove him to aggression.
WHEN YOU CONFRONT an Antiochus or
latter-day Antiochus like Nasser, there are
dangers. One is that you may be beaten. The i
one is even worse that, if you defeat him, you i_
succumb to bis tactics or his outlook. Thank heav
that the wisdom of our sages, those who ga,
spiritual leadership to the Hasmoneans of old doi
to those who provide the same moral guidux
today, has kept us from capitulating to the waysol
the enemy after overcoming him in battle.
Chanukah extends beyond the area of warfare. It
is a time of family gatherings, for the fortissimoin
of the joys of the home. It is a time for the ble__
of the candles, symbols of the brightness we _
bring to our loved ones and to society at large. It i.
an occasion for prayers of thanks to that Inviaiblt
Source of strength Who urges us on to a better life,
It is a time of gut-giving not only to our children I
In to causes which will make freedom and brother-1
hood more enduring.
West Bankers Furious Over Axe Attack
JERUSALEM (JTA)
Jewish settlers on the
West Bank are furious over
the axe attack on one of
them in the Nablus market-
place Monday and the esca-
lation of stone-throwing in-
cidents against Jewish
vehicles throughout the
territory.
They are venting their anger
on the military for alleged failure
to provide adequate protection
and on government leaders who,
they claim, reneged on promises
to take tougher measures to
prevent violence against Jews.
The victim of Monday's attack
is Yossi Stern, a resident of
Bracha, a Jewish settlement built
close to Nablus. He sustained
moderate wounds on his head,
back and hand when he was as-
saulted with an axe while loading
vegetables on a truck in the Nab-
lus marketplace at 7 a.m. local
time.
STERN, who was armed, as
most settlers are, fired several
shots into the air as he fell to the
ground. A companion, Kalman
Bach, from the nearby settlement
of Eilon Moreh, seized an Arab
who had been standing close to
Stern. Security forces later
detained another suspect. A
curfew was clamped on the
market and on the nearby Askar
refugee camp. Dozens of local
Arabs were hauled in for ques-
tioning as Stern received treat-
ment at a hospital.
Bach himself had been attack-
ed on the same spot 10 months
ago. His assailant has not been
caught. He echoed the senti-
ments of Jewish settlers when he
warned that the situation will
continue until the army and mili-
tary government take strong
measures.
"This sabotage and hatred
cannot be dealt with in positive
terms. It must be put to an end
once and for all Every terrorist
caught should be deported out of
the country," Bach said.
BENNY KATZOVER, chair-
man of the settlers council for the
Samaria region, demanded that
the Nablus market be shut down
until the perpetrators are touna.
He accused Premier Yitzhak!
Shamir and Defense Minister
Moshe Arens of not keeping their I
recent promisee to take tougher I
measures against West Bank I
Arabs.
"If the present situation does]
not change we shall not keep I
quiet," he said, a hint that ton
settlers would take the law into!
their own hands.
The presence of Israeli security
forces has increased noticeably!
Nevertheless, two Israeli boil
drivers were slightly injured last
night when rocks were hurled
through the windshields of their
vehicles. One incident occurred
near Nablus and the other near I
Ramallah.
Army reinforcements hive I
been deployed in the territory in
recent days to deal with an anti-
cipated upsurge of violence

Hanukah Minor Holiday
With Major Message
ByRABBI
KENNETH R. BERGER
of Congregation Rodeph Sholom
Some months ago I posed a
question to high school students
which compared two historical
events. I asked them to compare
the Hanukah struggle with the
battle of Iwo Jima. To my sur-
prise only one student, a World
War II buff, had ever heard of
that island in the South Pacific.
How could it be forgotten?
After the famous Marine's Battle
Hymn "From the sands of Iwo
Jima, to the shores of Tripoli,"
after the famous memorial in
Washington where soldiers are
implanting old glory in the soil of
that island. Ask them, however,
about Hanukah and they heard of
Judah Maccabee, the evfl Anti-
ocus, the cruise of oil. Now, how
can it be that a small battle which
took place over 2000 years ago
which was a tiny glimmer of hope
between national calamities is re-
membered, but that a major suc-
cess, merely forty, years ago
which was a turning point in
World War II, is forgotten?
Indeed, the connection
between these two events separ-
ated by 21 centuries is the
struggle for freedom and
conversely, the challenge to over-
come those who would force us to
become like them. It was indeed a
struggle against a totalitarian
Hellenistic regime on the one
hand, and the dicta tors hip of the
Emperor of Japan on the other
but one is forgotten, one is not,
why?
With Iwo Jima there is no pro-
cess of remembering. Iwo Jima,
along with Guadal Canal, are
obscure facts of American
history, remembered for some
exam and then forgotten, in spite
of the important symbolic mes-
Spain to Establish Diplomatic
Relations With IsraelBronfman
MADRID (JTA) -
Spain intends to establish
diplomatic relations with
Israel, according to Edgar
Bronfman, president of the
World Jewish Congress. He
was informed of this by
Prime Minister Felipe
Gonzalez during their
private meeting at the
Moncloa Palace, Bronfman
told reporters at the airport
Bronfman was the first world
Jewish leader to make such a
visit to thio country since the end
of the Franco era. He said
Gonzalez told him he was com-
mitted to the principle of rela-
tions with Israel and intended to
fulfill his commitments.
"THE SPANISH Prime Min-
ister has informed me that diplo-
matic relations between Spain
and Israel will be established,"
the WJC leader declared.
He added that he gained the
impression that Gonzalez already
has a date cr time in mind to act
formally on this matter. He
quoted the Prime Minister as
saying that the timing would be
dictated by "Spanish national
interest only" and that no
pressure from any quarter would
influence the manner and timing
of this decision.
WJC sources reported that
Bronfman and Gonzalez agreed
to hold an "Iberio-Jewish
dialogue" next year under the
joint sponsorship of the WJC and
the Spanish government. It is
expected to be held in Cordoba,
the birthplace of Maimonides.
sage which this battle re-
presented.
But with Hanukah a different
process is involved. One can in-
deed begin to appreciate the
subtle but remarkable process
our rabbis employed to assure
that the Hanukah message of rel-
igious freedom, and the struggle
against assimilation would never
be forgotten.
The legend of the cruise of oil
has captured the very souls of the
Jewish people from the youngest
to the oldest, to the extent that a
recent poll indicated that 77 per-
cent of America's Jews light
Hanukah candles. Here, the
legend is more easily remembered
than the message. But as long as
Hanukah is celebrated, then rab-
bis and educators can easily
remind their people to look
beyond the miracle, beyond the
candles, to the light of freedom,
the light of survival, and to drum
in the fact that we must ever
struggle to maintain that
freedom.
The little victory of sorts by
Judah Maccabee over the Syrian
Greeks has been remembered
when countless other gigantic
struggles have been forgotten.
And its very rembrance is pre-
cisely the struggle, even today,
against the pressures of assim-
ilation.
Theodor Herd, the assimil-
ated Jew, had been accustomed
to having a Xmas tree in his
home in Vienna for his children.
But after the First Zionist Con-
gress in Basel, he became a
changed person. He began to
read and to teach about Hanukah
and the beauty of the Menorah.
He compared the spreading light
of the Menorah to the gradual
awakening of a people. He wrote
"No task affords more happiness
than to be the servant of light."
As we gather around our
Menorot, let us reflect upon the
true meaning of these eight days,
for although the battle was small
and the holiday is minor, the
message is indeed major.

He's Reassured
Herzog, Reagan Discuss Common Ties
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON
,jTA) President Chaim
Herzog of Israel emerged
fjom a 30-minute meeting
with President Reagan at
the White House to declare
-that it left him "once again
reassured about the close
relationships that exist be-
tween Israel and the United
States and the common-
ality of interests that we
have."
Herzog said he raised the issue
of how to strengthen this
relationship but refused to give
any details. He said he brought
Reagan a "message" from Israel
which "describes the situation as
we see it" in the Middle East, a
situation which he called "very,
very fluid."
THE ISRAELI President said
he also discussed the possibilities
for future advancement of the
peace process in the Middle East,
adding that he expressed Israel's
"appreciation" that the U.S. "is
the main and most powerful
element in the cause of peace in
the Middle East."
White House press spokesman
Larry Speakes noted that
Reagan's meeting with Herzog
took place "in a time of in-
creasing American-Israeli co-
operation." He said Reagan
"reaffirmed to President Herzog
our unswerving commitment to
Israel's security."
Reagan also told Herzog that
he was "looking forward" to his
discussions with Israeli Premier
Yitzhak Shamir which, Speakes
said, would be "on the full range
of issues on the U.S.-Israeli
"agenda." He said they would
discuss ways for "enhanced
cooperation" between Israel and
the U.S. and how they can work
together for solutions to the
problems of the Middle East.
SHAMIR, accompanied by Is-
raeli Defense Minister Moshe
Arms, was to have a working
luncheon with the President at
the White House Tuesday. He
was also to be a guest that
evening at a dinner hosted by
Vice President George Bush. The
two Israelis were scheduled to
meet with Secretary of State
George Shultz and Defense
Secretary Caspar Weinberger.
Donald Rumsfeld, Reagan's
special envoy to the Middle East,
returned from his first visit to
that region to take part in the
meetings this week.
Herzog, who ended his 10-day
visit to the U.S. last Thursday,
was not at the White House on a
State visit, since he came to the
U.S. principally to address the
Council of Jewish Federations
General Assembly in Atlanta and
the United Nations General As-
sembly in New York. He did not
therefore receive the ceremonial
honors that were given Shamir
when he arrived at the White
House exactly one week later.
The Herzog visit, at a time of
increasing cooperation between
Israel and the U.S. is also in
contrast to the similar visit
Herzog's predecessor, President
Yitzhak Navon, made to Reagan
last January. At that time,
relations between Washington
and Jerusalem were at a low ebb.
Some Administration officials
saw the warm welcome accorded
Navon as a way to help those in
Israel who were building up the
then President as a possible
Labor opponent to then Premier
Menachem Begin.
Earlier, Herzog received an
honorary doctorate of humane
letters from Georgetown
University, the oldest Catholic
university in the U.S. In his
address there, he warned that
"democracy is on the wane"
throughout the world and
stressed the need for preserving
its values shared by Israel and
the U.S.
"I WAS nurtured on the twin
concepts of Judaism and law and
justice," Herzog said. "Perhaps
the outstanding aspect of Jewish
civilization is its inherent justice
and the fact that the concept of
justice occupies paramount place
in its principles."
He said these principles are
being maintained by the few
democracies left in the world
while "they are daily trampled in
derision and disdain in the
United Nations." He added that
"It is precisely those who have
totally abandoned the principles
given by the Jewish people to the
world in their national and inter-
national practice who now would
sit in judgment on Israel."
Herzog pointed out that 17
percent of Israel's population is
made up of Arabs. "Given the
problems which we have faced
during the last 35 years and the
fact that a number of Arab
countries continue to maintain a
state of war with Israel, the
condition of the Arab population,
which is a loyal and integral part
of our society, is perhaps the
greatest tribute to our free and
democratic society," he declared.
Herzog added that "we can
boast the only free Arab press in
the Mideast," the only society in
the Mideast where Arabs can
appeal political decisions to the
courts and I am the only head of
state in the Mideast who feels
secure enough to stroll freely
through our cities with a large
Arab population, and does so.

Iranian Twins
They're Granted Refugee Status
By WILLIAM SAPHIRE
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Faramaz and Behrooz
Sedgh, 23-year-old Jewish
twin brothers from Iran,
are back in the United
States with the legal status
of refugees after a 10-month
ordeal o.t arrest, detention
and repeated attempts by
immigration authorities to
deport them to a country
which refused to admit
them.
The young men, arrested last
Jan. 22 for entering the country
on false passports their only
means of escaping persecution in
Iran were granted refugee
status as a result of a legal battle
waged on their behalf by three
New York Congressmen and local
Jewish and non-Jewish agencies.
The brothers had been subject-
ed to anti-Semitic assaults by
other Iranian detainees during
the months they spent at the
Brooklyn detention center of the
U.S. Immigration and Natural-
ization Service (INS). They were
ordered deported last month.
THE REFUSAL of the INS to
release the brothers in custody of
relatives living in New York led
to charges of inhumane treat-
ment by Rep. Gary Ackerman
(D., N.Y.), one of the Congress-
men who intervened on their be-
half. The others are Reps.
Hamilton Fish and Benjamin
Oilman, both Republicans.
Their treatment drew further
criticism when the brothers were
shuttled four times back and
forth across the Atlantic in an
unsuccessful attempt by the INS
to deport them to Spain, the
country from which they had
originally entered the U.S. and
which had made it clear before-
hand that they would not be ad-
mitted.
A court order by Federal Judge
Leo Glasser late last month
halted that procedure. Subse-
quently, an agreement was
reached whereby the illegal entry
charges were dropped. The
brothers were flown to Vienna
under an order of expulsion. They
immediately filed for re-admit-
tance to the U.S. as refugees.

Orthodox Singe Cuomo for Order
NEW YORK (JTA) Gov. Mario Cuomo kept a
campaign promise, for which he has been severely
criticized Jay Orthodox Jewish and fundamentalist
Christian clergymen by signing an executive order to
protect homosexuals in New York from discrimination in
state employment and in providing of state services.
Rabbi Yehuda Levin of Brooklyn, director of the
Family Defense Coalition, members of which twice met
with the Governor in efforts to dissuade him from issuing
the order, sad the coalition would seek to "alert
Americans to the fact" that the Governor was "a direct
threat to the family."
THE GOVERNOR SAID his order simply repeats
protections already provided in the federal Constitution,
spelling out the specifics for state procedures and setting
up a task force to measure compliance.
The Governor, commenting on Rabbi Levin's charge,
said it was of the "utmost significance" that when the
rabbi made his charge, he had not read the executive
order.

Congregation Rodeph Sholom Dqh
Holds the Longest
On-Going Morning Minyah
Many years ago at the Old
Rodeph Sholom Synagogue on
Palm Avenue, a minyan was con-
ducted every morning, but many
of these leaders were elderly and
many had died, so the young men
of Rodeph Sholom formed a
"conductors group" to lead the
morning minyan.
Since that time, this has been
the longest ongoing minyan in
the city. They meet every
morning at 7:15 for the benefit of
all Jews in the Tampa area.
Breakfast is served and an air of
congeniality prevails. The
minyan also meets on holidav,
Rosh Hodesh and CholanSd
There is also a minyan on Sundiv
mornings at 9 led by the nnm
bers of Kadima and USY.
The minyan will akx> meet
any evening, or for Shiva, at the
request of any member. From
this group of lay leaden hi
emerged the "Conductors GrouD"
who participate on High Holi-
days and other occasions. Mem .
bers of the Tampa community art
invited to join the mornine
minyans.

Make the Holiday Special-Visit Friends
Flickering candle light, blazing
|)eftrth8, bountiful tables and
loneliness.
Is this what the holiday season
means?
Loneliness and holidays are
frequently synonymous for many
older people, according to Juliet
Rodriguez, administrator of Jew-
ish Towers and Mary Walker
Apts. in Tampa.
The period from Thanksgiving
through New Year's is an espe-
cially busy time for most people.
In trying to keep pace with a
hectic holiday schedule and
adhere to a demanding social
calendar, many well-intentioned
Americans will simply overlook
the special needs of elderly rela-
tives and friends, during this
time of year, notes Rodriguez.
Yet during this season many
older people are most vulnerable
to loneliness and depression as
they are bombarded, through
television, newspapers and
magazines, by reminders of
earlier, merrier times when they
themselves were at the center of
holiday festivities and gatherings
of loved ones.
Rodriguez points out that most
residents of nursing homes are in
their eighties, while many elderly
who live in independent housing
or retirement communities are in
their mid-seventies or older.
Many of their friends have died,
some of their own children, them-
selves advanced in age, may al-
ready have died or are not able to
visit frequently or easily.
It is easy for these people to be
forgotten when so many other at-
tractions vie for our attention
and time toward the close of the
vear.
Jewish Towers and Mary
Walker Apartments, members of
the American Association of
Homes for the Aging, the na-
tional organization of nonprofit
homes and services for the elder-
ly, urges the public to "Visit An
Old Friend!" during this holiday
season. Remember a relative or
friend not seen for a while. Or
stop by a nursing home, senior
citizen housing complex, or re-
tirement community and ask to
spend a little time with someone
who especially needs to be re-
minded that someone cares.
Extradition Requested
Suspected Nazi Criminal Arrested
CLEVELAND (JTA)
A 63-year-old suspected
Nazi war criminal was
arrested last week on an
extradition request from
Israel, the first time the
federal government has
arrested such a suspect for
extradition to Israel, ac-
cording to the Justice
Department.
Law Abrogated
AMSTERDAM (JTA> -
The Dutch Parliament has ap-
proved a government decision to
abrogate a 150 year-old law which
paid a subvention to religious of-
ficials of all faiths in Holland and
facilitated Jewish and other
cbngrfcgations in taxing their
members.
The law, promulgated in the
Napoleonic era, was intended to
compensate religious bodies for
the expropriation of their prop-
erties by the government.
John Demjanjuk, a retired
auto worker, reportedly called
"Ivan the Terrible" for his
behavior as a guard at the
Treblinka death camp in Nazi-
occupied Poland, and a native of
Ukraine, had his United States
citizenship revoked in 1981.
Federal District Judge Frank
Battisti ruled Demjanjuk had
lied on his immigration
documents to conceal his Nazi
past, a decision upheld by the
Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
The Supreme Court refused to
hear the case.
THE LOCAL office of Immi-
gration and Naturalization
reported Demjanjuk was arrested
at his home and, at a brief
hearing, U.S. Magistrate David
Perlman said he would release
Demjanjuk over the weekend on
his own recognizance. Perlman
also ruled that if the suspect
wanted to remain out of jail, he
would have to post a $50,000
bond by handing over the deed of
his $60,000 home. Perlman set a
Jan. 23 hearing date.
The formal request by Israel
for Demjanjuk s extradition was
made so that Demjanjuk could be
tried in Israel on charges of
having committed war crimes as
part of Nazi Germany's an-
nounced plan to exterminate the
Jewish people. The Justice
Department said Demjanjuk had
been arrested in compliance with
the Israel-United States extra-
dition treaty.
The Justice Department filed
deportation proceedings in
Cleveland against Demjanjuk,
who has maintained he was a
Soviet soldier captured by the
German army in 1942 and held
prisoner until the end of the war,
after the court rulings.
The Justice Department's Of-
fice of Special Investigations, set
up to deal with cases of suspected
Nazi war criminals residing in
this country, said the deportation
proceedings would be delayed
pending the outcome of the
extradition action.

Filling in Background
Shamir, Arens Meet With Reagan for Talks
By DAVID FRIEDMAN
WASHINGTON -
(JTA) Israeli Premier
Yitzhak Shamir and Defen-
se Minister Moshe Arens
began three days of talks
with the Reagan Adminis-
tration Monday with what
one Administration official
described as a "full agen-
da" aimed at deepening the
close relations between the
two countries.
"I hope and believe that our
visit will be a great contribution
to the deepening and the
strengthening of the friendly
relations between the United
States and Israel," Shamir told
reporters standing in pouring
rain at the White House
driveway after he had a 30-
minutt: meeting with President
Reagan.
Shamir and Arens met Reagan
again Tuesday for a working
lunch. This was Shamir's first
visit to Washington as Premier
and the first visit by an Israeli
Premier since Menachem Begin
was here in June, 1982. However,
Shamir who is also Foreign
Minister, and Arens, were here in
July after Begin cancelled his
scheduled visit.
THE ISRAELI Premier began
his day by laying a wreath at the
Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in
the Arlington National Cemetery
in memory of the U.S. servicemen
who were killed in Lebanon. He
and Arens had lunch at Secretary
of State George Shultz's home
before a full afternoon of
meetings ^t the State Depart-
ment.
Before going to the White
Giscard WiU
Visit Israel
PARIS (JTA) Former
President Valery Giscard
D'Estaing will visit Israel,
it was announced last Sun-
day. Giscard, who had declined to
visit Israel during his seven-year
incumbency, is due in Jerusalem
Dec. 28, accompanied by his wife,
for a 10-day visit.
Pilot-Training
TEL AVIV (JTA) -
Eighteen young Blacks from
South Africa are in Israel for
training as pilots. They are
citizens of Ciskei, a "homeland"
established for Blacks by the
Pretoria government but not
officially recognized by Israel.
For that reason, the trainees
carried South African passports
when they landed in Israel last
week.
Education Minister Zevulun
Hammer was reported tonight
in stable condition after suf-
fering a heart attack earlier in
the day. The Minister, 46,
head of the 'Young Guard'
faction in the National Reli-
gious Party, was in the inten-
sive care department of a Tel
Aviv hospital. The hospital
spokesman said the attack
was 'moderate:' (JTA)
House Tuesday, Shamir had
breakfast with Shultz, while
Arens had breakfast with
Defense Secretary Caspar Wein-
berger. Further State Depart-
ment meetings were held
Tuesday afternoon and on
Wednesday before Shamir ad-
dressed the National Press Club
at noon. Vice President George
Bush hosted a dinner for the
visiting Israelis Tuesday night.
The close relations between the
two countries were stressed by
Shamir on his arrival here.
"Shared interests, common goals
and similar suffering have drawn
us even closer together," he said.
"I want to translate this kinship
into a force that will address
itself to the problems of our
region."
THIS WAS also stressed by a
senior Administration official in
briefing reporters. "This is a
meeting between good friends
which comes at a time when our
relations are very good and when
both sides would like to see them
made even better," he said.
At the same time, the official
stressed, "this does not mean
that we are going to overlook
differences or try to sweep them
under the rug. It does mean that
we don't want to magnify those
differences out of proportion" but
"deal with them with the context
of the deepening cooperation and
friendship between our two states
and the relationship of trust that
exists between us."
One difference that came up is
the U.S. opposition to Israel's
policy of Jewish settlements in
the West Bank. Before leaving
Israel, Shamir said that his
government would not consider a
freeze on settlement activity even
if such a request was made by the
U.S. as an inducement for King
Hussein of Jordan to enter peace
negotiations. But the Adminis-
tration official stressed, "Settle-
ments is not an issue that is
going to be pushed under the
table or brushed under the
carpet."
HOWEVER, he said the set-
tlement issue would be discussed
in the context of Reagan's "com-
mitment" to his September 1,
1982 peace initiative. "This
discussion will include settle-
ments and the ways to improve
the quality of Palestinian life in
the occuppied territory," he said.
He said the U.S. believes that
settlements are an "obstacle" to
the peace process.
Another difference between the
two countries that was discussed
is the U.S. desire to provide arms
for "moderate" Arab countries.
"We will want to discuss our
relations with moderate Arab
countries such as Jordan, Saudi
Arabia and Egypt and why these
relationships are important to the
United States and indeed to the
entire Western world," the
