Alert Policeman
Averts Disaster
JERUSALEM (JTA) An
alert policeman was credited with
preventing another terrorist
attack in Jerusalem that could
have resulted in heavy civilian
casualties.
The officer noticed a suspi-
cious-looking bag in the Ghrat
Shaul quarter on the western
outskirts of the city. He
summoned police sappers who
found that the bag contained a
powerful explosive device which
they dismantled safely.
The last terrorist assault in
Jerusalem occurred on April 2
when three terrorists opened fire
and hurled grenades on King
George Avenue near Jaffa Road,
the city's busiest intersection,
wounding 48 persons. Armed
civilians at the scene killed one
terrorist and captured another.
The third was captured by police.

Menorah Manor Moving Up
.
Construction of the 120-bed,
multi-level care facility, Menorah
Manor, was begun in October,
1983. The completion date of
January, 1985, is on target. The
Home for Jewish Living on 58th
Street in St. Petersburg is unique
because it will be owned and
operated by the Jewish commu-
nity. Menorah Manor will be a
non-profit, multi-faceted, kosher,
care facility, providing for our
elderly in the Tampa Bay Area.
With its location next to the
Menorah Center Retirement
Apartments, it will form, upon
completion, a combination of
Jewish services for our elderly.
Most rooms will overlook a
neighboring city park or a brook
that runs through the property.
Rooms will provide the utmost
comfort and privacy. Other
rooms front on the B'nai Israel
Synagogue complex where
sounds of children playing at the
Pinellas County Jewish Day
School will be heard.
Concern and care for elderly
are part of Jewish life. Jewish
homes for the aged are rich in
tradition and sentiment: every
Jewish community gives priority
to providing a dignified and
comfortable "Home" for those
who need such care. Menorah
Manor will offer our aged a
feeling of belonging. Jewish
traditions and holidays will be
observed and will give residents a
sense of "family" and Jewish-
ness.
Four and one-half million
dollars of the six million dollar
goal has been reached. Support is
needed now, and appropriate
recognition is planned for
"investors" in Menorah Manor,"
said Adele Lurie, Director of
Development. "Your financial
commitment and active
participation will insure the
success of the "Home for Jewish
Living." Adele Lurie can be
reached at 1-346-2775.

Marred
Think of it: On the eve of Israel's 36th
anniversary of independence to be
celebrated this weekend, that young nation
must deal with the awful discovery of an
extensive Jewish terrorist underground in
its midst.
Object, apparently, of the terrorists is to
repay Israel's Arab population in kind for
Arab terrorism against Jewish Israelis and.
presumably. to intimidate Arabs on the
West Bank and in Gaza so that Jewish
settlement, especially on the West Bank,
can expand unmolested.
It is only twice-Chai twice Life in
years that the Jewish State was born.
Furthermore, it is barely four full decades
that the Jewish agony, the Hitlerian
Holocaust, out of whose ashes Israel
emerged in our time, finally came to an end.
And already. there are elements in Israel
Jews themselves who are taking to
the terrorist patterns of Israel's, and world
Jewry's, most intransigent enemies as an
answer to the terrorism perpetrated upon
.hem. In so short a time, some of the
victims have grown to ape the beast.
On the occasion of Israel's 36th an-
niversary, the 5th day of the month Iyar.
which this year falls on Monday, but which
most Jews will be celebrating this weekend,
what stuns us all with the discovery of the
Jewish terrorist underground network
deserves special consideration.
Nor must this consideration end with the
mere gesture of a high moral tone against
it. because Israel has certainly been
provoked enough, and it is perhaps ad-
mirable that so much restraint has been
shown in the civilian population up until
now.
Knitting the Chasm
But what must go beyond the high moral
tone, the deploring of this anomaly in
Jewish life, is an understanding of the
realities of Israeli life that we. as members
of the Jewish community in the Diaspora,
still fail to grasp.
And that is that we are likely to see in
the final coming into public view of those
who have been arrested a high proportion
of young Israelis born in their country and
strangers to us. More important, it is we
who are strangers to them.
Of the Holocaust, of the anti-Semitic
agonies borne by the Jewish people in the
previous 2,000 years since the last Jewish
nation in Israel, these young people are
likely to understand little except as
pages in a sad history.
Angered by stories that Jews withstood
the assaults upon them through two
millenia without responding in kind, numb
to the reality that so many of the six-
million victims of Nazism went to their
doom uttering "Ani Ma'amin," their
impulse to protect themselves against
terror with terror of their own comes from
the feeling that Israel is their land, and that
it has ever been so.
In this sense, the chasm between them
and us grows apace, and we can only hope
that they represent the merest fraction of
Israel even today.
This is a sad reality with which to reckon
on Israeli's 36th anniversary. But in Israel.
as in the Diaspora, all of us must grow to
understand the chasm and to commit
ourselves to diminishing it.
Only in this way can we truly come to
enjoy the bold experience of Israel reborn
the delight of it, the enchantment. And
the promise and its fulfillment.

ISRAEL AMONG 11^5 NEIGHBORS
k
PURjNG iTJ 36 B?THtV\y
Pope Wants 'Special Status' for Jerusalem
JERUSALEM (JTA)
A call by Pope John
Paul II for a "special inter-
nationally-guaranteed
status" for Jerusalem "so
that one side or the other
cannot place it under
discrimination" has been
rejected by Israel.
Foreign Ministry spokesman
Yosef Amihoud told reporters
that "Jerusalem has been the
capital of the Jewish people
throughout history and will
remain Israel's capital forever.
For the first time in history, all
believers in Jerusalem can enjoy
full, free access to holy places and
freedom of worship."
THE POPE made the sugges-
tion about Jerusalem in a
comprehensive apostolic letter
addressed to Catholics in Israel
and to all people of the Middle
East. The letter was released as
Roman Catholics around the
world began ceremonies comme-
morating the death of Jesus in
Jerusalem.
Noting that Jerusalem was a
holy city for Chirstianity. Islam
and Judaism, the Pope called for
a lasting and "just solution" to
the status of the city, which
Israel declared its 'united and
eternal capital" in 1980 He said
he was convinced the lack of
efforts to find a just solution to
the question of Jerusalem would
only compromise the search for a
peaceful solution to the Middle
East conflict."
In 1960, when the Knesset
enacted the Jerusalem law, which
affirmed that Jerusalem was
Israel's united and eternal
capital, the Vatican criticized the
move and said that Israeli
guarantees of free access for all to
the city's holy places were insuf-
ficient.
The Pope, in his apostolic
letter, said that in addition to
maintaining Jerusalem as an
open city, s Palestinian homeland
and security for Israel were
fundamental requirements for a
lasting Mideast peace.
"FOR THE Jewish people who
live in the State of Israel *
must invoke the desired security
and just tranquility that is the
prerogative of every nation." the
Pope wrote. "The Palestinian
people, which have their historic
roots in that land and for tens of
years have been dispersed, hive
the natural right, out of justice,
to again find a homeland and to
be able to live in peace and
tranquility with all other people
of the region."
In I960, then Israeli Premier
Menachem Begin invited the
Pope to visit Israel.

More Denials
Israel: We're Not Helping Contras
By DAVID LANDAU
JERUSALEM Israel has issued a cate-
, gorical denial that it is
supplying arms to Nicara-
gua rebels, and denounced
reports that it was doing so
as "baseless rumors."
The denial by Foreign
Ministry spokesman Yosef
I Amihood, followed a report in the
United State* on NBC television
news that Israel was supplying
Soviet-made weapons to rebels
fighting the Sandinista govern-
ment at the behest of the U.S.
In its report from a Contra
rebel base in Honduras, NBC
showed a 47-year-old C-47
transport plane landing at an
airstrip some 110 miles from
, Managua, Nicaragua, bringing
supplies for the 11,000 U.S.-
backed guerrillas flighting to
topple the leftist Nicaraguan
government. Contra leader
Heim Named Regional Judge
For National Writing Awards
The National Council of
Teachers on English INCTEl has
appointed Dr. William Heim of
Tampa a regional judge for the
1984 NCTE Achievement
Awards in Writing.
Heim, associate dean of the
College of Arts and Letters,
University of South Florida, is
one of 700 educators who will
judge state entries in the 25th
annual NCTE competition for
high school students in their
senior year.
More than 6000 students have
been nominated by their high
school teachers for 1984 award.
Each state judging committee
can select a maximum number of
students for awards citation
equal to the number of their state
representatives in the U.S.
Congress. Committees are
composed of high school teachers
and college professors who review
writing samples from nominated
students. Selected students will
be cited for excellence in writing
with recommendations to
colleges and universities of their
choice.
Heim, an associate professor of
English at USF, is a specialist in
18th century British literature,
literature of the occult and
composition. He holds master's
and doctoral degrees from
Indiana University and has been
a member of the USF faculty
since 1970.
Dr. Heim has been a faculty
member of the Congregation
Schaarai Zedek Religious School
for the past 10 years. Currently
he teaches 8th grade and the
post-confirmation classes.

Enrique Bermudex told NBC,
"We received some weapons from
Israel. The weapons were taken
from the PLO in Lebanon"
during the war
NBC CLAIMED that Israel
was supplying 25 percent of the
rebels' arms under an agreement
reached during a visit in 1982 to
Honduras by then Israel Defense
Minister Ariel Sharon. The report
said the rebels wanted Soviet
weapons because they could
supplement them with arms
captured from Nicaraguan forces
which were supplied by Cuba and
the Soviet Union. NBC also said
that the aged C-47 plane that
served as the Contras lifeline was
supplied by the U.S.
Amihood, in his statement,
said Israel "denied altogether
these baseless rumors .. They
are ridiculous. This is a mean
attempt to slur Israel's standing
abroad and international
reputation" A Foreign Ministry
official said the denial applied
equally to the "rumors" that
Israel was extending military
training aid also at the behest
of the U.S. to the government
forces of El Salvador.
Foreign press reports said that
the U.S. is funnelling funds into
"third countries" for the purpose
of arming anti-leftist government
and rebel forces. Israel, in these
reports, was included among the
"third countries."
IN WASHINGTON. State
Department deputy spokesman
Alan Rom berg said that the U.S.
"has no intention of providing
funds for third countries for the
purpose of supporting covert
activities." Rom berg, who was
repeating an earlier State
Department statement, refused
any comment on Israeli activities
in Central America. But officials
here have denied that the U.S. is
urging Israel to take a more
active part in the region.
The American TV report came
at an especially awkward
moment for Israel. Foreign
Ministry director-general David
Kimche was in Washington to
hold talks with Undersecretary of
State for Political Affairs
Lawrence Eagleburger and his
successor, Michael Armacost,
who is leaving his posrt as
Ambassador to the Philippines,
which reportedly will include
Central American issues.

Cantorial Student Nancy Ginsberg
Awarded Fulbright Scholarship
Friday, May 4,1984 / The Jewish Floridian of Tampa Page 7
[Nancy Ginsberg, a 23-year-old
judent at the School of Sacred
lusic of Hebrew Union College-
fcwish Institute of Religion, has
pn awarded a Fulbright
J-holarship to study voice and
lusic. Ms. Ginsberg, daughter of
|r. and Mrs. Arthur Ginsberg of
Ireat Neck, NY, will take a leave
, absence from her cantorial
ludies to spend the 1984-85
pademic year in Milan and
irence, Italy.
Ms. Ginsberg was a voice
Ujor at Indiana University
there 9he received the Bachelor
Music degree in 1982. While at
he University, she served as a
eacher at the Bloomington
ewish Center and as religious
ervices coordinator at the local
lillel Foundation. Her combined
interest in Judaism and music led
to her decision to study for the
cantorate at Hebrew Union
College.
A mezzo-soprano, Ms.
Ginsberg is the youngest winner
of a Fulbright in voice and music
this year. To apply for the
scholarship, she auditioned
before a panel of Fulbright
judges at the United Nations.
With their enthusiastic recom-
mendation, her application was
sent on to Washington, D.C., and
then to Italy, where she was
named a winner.
Ms. Ginsberg will study voice,
acting, musicianship and move-
ment with an array of distin-
guished private teachers in Italy.
She is also intent on residing with
Jewish families during her year
abroad, and has enlisted the aid
of the HUC faculty to help locate
appropriate homes.
The School of Sacred Music
was founded in 1948 as the first
of its kind in this country offering
professional training for the
cantorate. Since its founding,
more than 200 men and women
have been invested as cantors,
and today serve congregations
throughout the United States as
well as in Canada and Australia.
Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion is the
nation's oldest institution of
higher Jewish studies. With
schools in Cincinnati, New York,
Los Angeles and Jerusalem, it
trains rabbis, cantors, religious
school educators and communal
workers and offers doctoral and
postdoctoral programs for
scholars.

during the Nazi era, and was
taught by his professors "that
above all else, our task is to
struggle with God." Thus, "this
congenial Baptist began the
transformation into a Jew by
choice," he reveals.
After receiving his BA degree
magna cum laude, in 1975, Dr.
Davidson moved to Houston to
attend Baylor College of
Medicine. While "delivering 50 or
so babies, assisting at dozens and
dozens of coronary by-passes and
listening to innumerable patients
describe the relentless progress of
their chronic diseases," he also
continued his study of Judaism,
attended services at Congre-
gation Beth Israel and married a
"childhood friend of heart and
mind." On November 30, 1979;
following his graduation from
medical schol, Dr. Davidson,
together with his wife, formally
converted to Judaism under the
guidance of Rabbi Hyman Judah
Schachtel, a 1931 graduate of
Hebrew Union College, rabbi-
emeritus of Beth Israel.
"HE CAME to me," Rabbi
Schachtel relates, "already
convinced he wanted to become a
Jew. His own search for the
spiritual approach to life and
man's attitude toward God led
him to Judaism."
After completing medical
school. Dr. Davidson spent three
years as a professor at University
of Texas Nursing School,
teaching physiology and
anatomy. This was followed by a
medical internship at the Univer-
sity of Cincinnati's teaching
hospital, during which he decided
to apply to Hebrew Union
College.
"I have no tolerance for
remaining as ignorant as I
presently am regarding Jewish
sources and ritual," Dr.
Davidson says in explaining his
decision to enter HUC. "Judaism
is not for me a congenital
convenience. Everything is new,
especially in ritual and
observance."
Like all first-year rabbinic
students at the Jerusalem
School, Dr. Davidson is
concentrating on mastering the
Hebrew language. Norma
Davidson is attending a
municipal ulpan, singing in the
HUC choir and "generally
keeping us both sane."
LOOKING BACK now, what
compelled the Davidsons to
choose Judaism? "We are first
Jews because it 'feels' right," he
explains, "We all become or
remain Jewish because we expe-
rience a largely unconscious
psychological and spiritual
wholeness as praying, observant
members of the Jewish commu-
nity that we do not experience
elsewhere.
"Secondly," he continues, "we
claim Judaism again and again
because beyond the psycho-
logical, spiritual voids that it
may fill in our psyches, it also
engages us in a most conscious
and intellectual way. We find it
to be a fascinating way of seeing
and being in the world."
Immersed in his studies in
Jerusalem, Dr. Davidson has no
quick answers regarding his
future as either rabbi or
physician. "The question is not
what I am going to do," he says.
"The question is who I am going
to be. Hopefully," he adds, "I
will first be a literate Jewish
father and husband whose
children have his stubbornness of
will and his wife's intelligence. I
hope that my children will of
course remain Jewish," he
concludes, "but I hope equally
they will see in the lives of their
parenta the importance of every
individual's struggle to know
God."
