Freij expressed some
satisfaction with the success of
the Arab-Jewish Progressive
List for Peace, a new faction
which won two Knesset seats in
its first try for parliament. But
Al Quds, the leading Arabic
daily in East Jerusalem,
observed that no government
that may emerge from the
elections would be strong or
stable enough to take bold
decisions.
The leftist Arabic daily Al-
Shaab said the elections gave
the government a mandate to
continue the "policy of
repression" in the terriroties.
One of its editors told the Isra-
eli daily Haaretz, "We now fear
for the fate of our holy places,
especially the Al Aksa mosque
and the Tomb of the Patriarchs
after the rise of extreme fanatics
in Israel, particularly Kahane's
party."
Bashir Barghuti, leader of the
Communist Party on the West
Bank, said the election results
showed that Israel was suffering
a deep ideological, political and
economic crisis. It also showed,
according to Barghuti that there
is hardly any interest among the
Israeli public to seek a solution
of the Middle East conflict.

United Jewish Appeal
Campaign will lead a
"Campaign leadership mission"
to Israel, to coincide with the
1985 United Jewish Appeal
campaign opening conference in
Jerusalem Sept. 14-16.
The indepth, fact-finding
tours are scheduled for Sept. 9-
16 (open to 1985 contributors of
$10,000 and more) and Sept. 13-

faelis Deny Any Meetings
ith Iranians in Paris
By AUDREY HAUBENSTOCK
Rabbi Joan Farber, recently
ordained from Hebrew Union
College-Jewish Institute of Reli-
gion, New York campus, has
begun her duties as Assistant
Rabbi and Director of Youth
and Education at Congregation
Schaarai Zedek.
In addition to assisting Rabbi
Frank Sundheim with life cycle
events and other duties, Rabbi
Farber will be working closely
with Deborah Albert, the Rel-
igious School principal. They are
already reviewing the
curriculum for next year.
Farber says, "Religious
School should be fun and I hope
to create a blend of history,
ritual and culture with hands on
experience for the students.
One of her basic goals is to
meet as many people and be
able to attend to their needs as
much as possible. One group she
is waiting to meet is SchZFTY,
the Temple Youth Group. Most
of the teens on the board are
still away at Camp Coleman, the
regional camp in Cleveland, Ga.
She stresses the fact that her
office door will always be open
to meet with parents and will
encourage them to visit. She
plans on having the room set up
to accommodate children, as
well as adults, so that there will
be no need for a babysitter.
As a student, Joan Farber
was the bi-weekly rabbi at
Temple Israel, New Castle, Pa.
In this small congregation
where there were five kinder-
garten students and two B'nai
Mitzvah, she was the rabbi,
educator and shamus.
Rabbi Farber brings to
Tampa a gentleness, caring and
depth of feeling acquired after
much patient and family
counseling at Memorial Sloan-
Ketering Hospital in New York
City. These chaplaincy
privileges were very important
to her, since many of the
families and patients were from
around the world and had the
need of a rabbi.
She felt the need of easing the
mental pain just by holding a
hand and sharing a hug.
Rabbi Farber enjoys working
with children and has dealt with
them in depth in grief counsel-
ing. She feds children a very
street-wise these days as a
result of television and they
have a good sense of what is
happening in the world.
Attitudes towards children
have also changed over the past
years. Rabbi Farber explained
the importance of leveling with
children about death, "they
need to be able to express their
emotions and understand the
importance of crying. The child
will help the parent to cope with
a death in the family."
"Kids do say the darndest
things, and they will ask the
questions the parents are too
embarrassed to ask; about
death and dying, God and
why."
Rabbi Farber grew up as a

Moshe Arens denied that Israel
was selling weapons to Iran when
he was in Washington late last
month. The issue arose after
former Defense Minister Ariel
Sharon claimed, during an earlier
visit to Washington, that Israel
and Iran had concluded some
deals involving military
hardware for strategic reasons.

Falashas Living in Israel
JERUSALEM (JTA) The Jewish Agency
confirmed for the first time that thousands of Falashas
Ethiopian Jews are in Israel. According to data
released by its immigration and absorption department,
about a quarter of Ethiopian Jewry now lives in Israel,
more than half of them under 18 and only five percent
over 60 years of age.
THIS INFORMATION was disclosed after
reporters were taken on a tour of absorption centers in
northern Israel by Haim Aharon, head of the
immigration and absorption department. Aharon said
the Agency changed its policy of not publicizing the
Falasha presence in res^ mse to what he said were
unfounded media reports about problems of Falasha
immigrants.

History Was Made
In San Francisco
There is nothing especially partisan in
proclaiming joy at the nomination of
Geraldine Ferraro as candidate for Vice
President of the Democratic Party.
Ferraro is the first woman candidate to be
named as an aspirant to the second
highest office in the land, and as such,
she deserves applause. Or, more aptly, it
is the act itself that deserves applause.
There is little doubt that the decision
was political. The Democrats had to do
something to spice up what had become a
boring primary and what was shaping up
to be a typical party blood-letting at the
convention in San Francisco.
There is also little doubt that the
pressure some say it was ill-advised
by the National Organization for Women
especially at their earlier convention in
Miami Beach which Walter Mondale
addressed, was becoming more than a
troubled political organization such as the
Democrats could bear.
To carry the speculation further,
pundits will observe that the nomination
of Feftoro helped to a great extent to
defang the Rev. Jesse Jackson's warning
that he would run a war of his own in San
Francisco if he didn't get his way on a lot
of issues a warning that seemed
especially fearful in light of his anti-
Semitic campaign rhetoric and his refusal
to separate himself from Black activist
Louis Farrakhan.
Sex No Longer an Issue
We suspect that there are kernels of
truth in all of this speculation as to why
Ferraro was given the nod and kernels
of truth in even further speculation not
here mentioned. But the fact remains that
an historic deed was accomplished at the
Democratic Convention in Chicago. The
country has been asked to vote for a
woman Vice President. If elected, she will
stand one heartbeat away from the Boss.
Parallels in significance abound. The
most obvious one was John F. Kennedy's
nomination in 1960 not a first for a
Roman Catholic; New York's Gov. Al
Smith held that distinction in 1928. But
Smith lost; the times were such that
religious bigotry was too powerful for him
to overcome. Kennedy won. No such
burden would be borne by a Romanist
today; indeed, Ferraro herself is a
Catholic, and it is hardly a significant
issue.
But if Ferraro's religion is not a
significant issue anymore, now for the
first time, she has made her sex an issue
of indifference in the years ahead win
or lose in November. And that is a thing
for all Americans to take pleasure in.
Needed: Election Reform
Few will venture to say, but in our
view it will surely take a long time for the
election in Israel to be "settled" that
is, for a government to be formed.
The evidence is already abundantly
clear that previous coalition maneuvering
will not prove effective this time in
bringing the mind-boggling number of
parties and interests in Israel to a
governmental accommodation.
What stands in the wings, a shadow
apparently neither the dominant Labor
nor Likud Parties wants, is a national
unity government. Already, there has
been the obvious kind of bickering: Who
will be its leader, Shimon Peres or
Yitzhak Shamir?
Peres' Labor Party won more seats
than Shamir*s Likud, but the betting now
is that no government will be formed at
all if Shamir does not head it.
All of which comes down to this
dominant issue: The Major problem
facing Israel today is its economic
disaster, and everyone in the country
knows it. But, in our view, equally major
and equally a disaster is Israel's political
system. It sorely needs revamping.
Until that is done until Israel can
hold an election the outcome of which
reflects the true desires of the electorate
until a government can emerge out of
a single election with a clear mandate to
rule on the basis of its avowed principles
then Israel's democracy is more than in '
trouble. It is in danger.
Israelis like Rabbi Meir Kahane, whose
Kach Party won a single seat last week,
and whose odious politics are enough to
terrify any human being of good-will,
have the kind of exposure he has today
precisely because of Israeli's exotic
election process. If Rabbi Kahane is not a
danger, then we don't know what is
and that includes the economy itself.

Sandinista Anti-Semitism
One Leader Says It's Pure Fabrication
By SAUL SORRIN
Charges have been
widely disseminated in the
United States and en-
couraged by the White
House that the Sandinista
government in Nicaragua
has been guilty of anti-Se-
mitic treatment of its Jew-
ish community. These
charges have their origin
in a small group of Nica-
raguan Jews now living in
the United States, former
supporters of the Somoza
regime.
I visited Nicaragua as a
member of an interfaith study
mission in December, 1983 in an
effort to investigate charges that
the Sandinistas had confiscated
en masse personal property of
Jews, that they had driven the
Jews into exile, and that the
Synagogue of the Congregation
Israelite de Nicaragua had been
arbitrarily confiscated by the
Sandinista government.
DURING AN eight-day stay
in Nicaragua I interviewed
members of the Jewish
community. Nicaraguans who
support and oppose the Sandinis-
tas, clergy, newsmen,
government and party leaders,
and the American Ambassador. I
have concluded that the San
dinistas can be charged with
many sins, including
insensitivity and ineptness, but i
could find no credible evidence tc
support a charge of anti
Semitism.
At its peak in 1972, the Jewish
community numbered 150 souls
many of whom were refugees
from Nazi Europe. The
devastating 1973 earthquake,
which destroyed much of
Managua, including the
synagogue, signalled the
beginning of the end of the Jew-
ish community. The violence of
the revolutionary years in the
late 1970s accelerated the
departure of Jewa.
In July, 1979, when the
Somoza government fell, there
were no more than a dozen Jew-
ish families in the country
virtually all had departed
voluntarily to rebuild their lives
elsewhere. A few retained
poaaeaaion of their property and
now travel freely in and out of
Nicaragua; there are nc
restrictions on leaving oi
returning. But others, acting out
of fear, abandoned their property
and saw it confiscated under
Sandinista law.
ONLY THREE Jew. remain in
Nicaragua today. Roland NsJUs

invaded. He lives comfortably in
Managua on his pension and real
estate investments. Jaime Levy,
also a refugee from France, runs
an import business. Both men
were active in the Jewish
community, and both openly
discussed their views about Nica-
ragua, the Sandinistas, and the
charges of anti-Semitism.
Najlis and Levy categorically
denied that the Sandinistas
behaved in an anti-Semitic way.
If Jews suffered confiscation of
their property, they said, they
were singled out not because of
their Jewish identity, but
because they were alleged to have
maintained close relationships
with the corrupt and brutal
Somoza regime.
In accordance with post-
revolutionary Nicaraguan law.

leader of the FSLN, tat
Sandinista Party, spoke of hit
government's readiness tc
refurbish and restore tat
synagogue to the congregation.
BUT IN the absence of a Jew-
ish community, the problem ol
who will accept responsibility tx
the building remains. Both
officials declared their readiness
to review any allegation of an
unjust confiscation of property
and to meet with the Jewish com-
munity. But there appears to be
an understandable hesitation on
the part of some American Jew-

discussion with the Sandinistas.

is the spirit of the campers. The
counselors cater to the social
needs of the children. They help
the children interact with each
other and improve their
conversational ability.
My son, Mark Belkin, is in
the 4th-5th grade group and I
can already recognize the
change the camp is making
toward his growth I very much
appreciate what this summer
camp has done and I hope next
year is going to be another
successful effort by this admin-
istration.

4 Palestinians Given
Life by Military Court
JERUSALEM (JTA) Four Palestinian Arabs
were sentenced to life imprisonment by a military court
in Nablus and four others received sentences of 10*25
years for the stabbing murder of yeshiva student
Aharon Gross in the Hebron marketplace last July 7.
The men, all in their early 20's, were described as
fanatical Moslems who want to impose Islamic rule over
Palestine and oust the Jews. They expressed no remorse
over the killing which they saw as part of a jihad
holy war a tenet of the Moslem faith.
DURING THE TRIAL, defense lawyers charged
that the presence of Jewish settlers in Hebron had
created an atmosphere conducive to the emergence of
uch extremist groups.
Gross was fatally stabbed while waiting for friends
at the marketplace. His assailants seized the gun he
was carrying and escaped in a car. The youth lay in the
street unattended until he was mis-identified as an Arab
and taken to a local Arab hospital where he was
pronounced dead. His body was subsequently claimed
by Jewish authorities.

will stimulate discussion about
the changes in the media's
presentation of families.
The second area raises the
question "What is a family?"
Paintings of 19th and 20th
century families, both nuclear
and extended, let visitors
ponder the traditions of family
port rain ts. A framed mirror
encourages children and adults
to pose in their own way.
Then, a giant dollhouse, full

visitors' attention.
Basic emotional ties of

displayed in the section entitled
"How Families Care." A puppet

tion of the JDC's 70th year of
service to world Jewry. Dale
Schwartz, of Atlanta, an Asso-
ciate Secretary of HIAS and a
prominent attorney and well
known leader in the Jewish
community, is Dinner Chairman.
In announcing the 1984
awards, Robert Israeloff, HIAS
President, noted that the
Liberty Award is presented each
year for "outstanding contribu-
tions to the furtherance of peace
and freedom." The Masliansky
Award is given in memory of
the Rev. Zvi Hirsch Masliansky,
a founder of HIAS and a leader
in Jewish immigration affairs, in
recognition of "notable human-
itarian service on behalf of
refugees and immigrants."
Former Liberty Award
recipients include Sen. Edward
M. Kennedy, President Harry S.
Truman, and U.N. Ambassador
Jeane J. Kirkpatrick. Congress-
man Emanuel Celler and
William Rosenwald, Honorary
Chairman of the UJA, are
among those who have received
the Masliansky Award since its
establishment in 1972.
For close to 17 years, Serge
and Beate Klarsfeld have
devoted themselves to preparing
dossiers on and confronting un-
punished Nazi war criminals. A
non-Jew, born Beate Konzel in
Berlin, Mrs. Klarsfeld was a
child during the Nazi period.
She learned about Nazism and
the horrors perpetrated in its
name only after her arrival in
Paris in 1960 and her subse-
quent marriage to international
lawyer Serge Klarsfeld a Jew
whose father, a member of the
French resistance, had died in
the gas chambers of Auschwitz.
Due to the Klarsfelds' inter-
ventions, former S.S. Captain
Klaus Barbie was extradited
from La Paz in South America
to France to stand trial. The
Klarfelds have published famous
"Memorial to the Jews De-
ported From France," "The Au-
schwitz Album," and several
other important publications
documenting the Holocaust. In
1977, Beate Klarsfeld was
nominated for the Nobel Peace
Prize by a committee of more
than 100 well known Israelis.
Serge Klarsfeld is President of
the organization: "Sons and
Daughters of Jews Deported
From France." He was person-
ally responsible for bringing to
justice three French war-
criminals Jean Laguay, Rene
Bousquet, and Maurice Papon.
In his "Memorial to the Jews
Deported From France," (which
was originally published in 1978
in its French language edition,
and published in English in
1983), Serge Klarsfeld estab-
lished, for the first time, the
number of victims of the "final
solution" in France: 75,721
deportees.
The Klarsfelds, who live in
Paris, have two children a
son and a daughter.
Edwin Shapiro, recipient of
HIAS' 1984 Masliansky Award,
served as President of HIAS
from March 14, 1979 to March
21, 1984, at which time he was
appointed HIAS' third Presi-
dent Emeritus and elected
Chairman of the HIAS National
Council. Mr. Shapiro, who has
played a leading role in Jewish
communal and philanthropic
affairs for more than two
decades, was elected to the
Board of Directors of HIAS in
1971. He was responsible for a
number of organizational
innovations during his tenure as
President and made significant
contributions on a national and
international level. Among them
was his role as a member of the

Jerusalem's Pine-Fresh Air:
How Trees In Israel Fight Pollution
By BILL CLARK
Visitors to Jerusalem are
often astonished by the city's
exhilaratingly crisp air. Even in
mid-summer, while the rest of
the Middle East swelters in an
oppressive, dusty heat, Jerus-
alem's air is crystal clear and
her temperatures moderate. It is
a fortunate combination of eco-
logical factors that make the
Holy City's climate one of the
most appealing in the world.
A key factor of this extra-
ordinary climate is the existence
of millions of pine trees in the
mountains west of the city.
These trees, planted over the
decades by the Jewish National
Fund and appropriately called
Jerusalem pines, perform two
vital tasks they purify the air
and upgrade its quality.
To understand how the
system works, it's important to
know that, in Israel, the
prevailing winds are from the
west. Often they come from
Europe, after picking up a
frightening assortment of pol-
lutants. Scientific analysis has
identified a disturbing number
of caustic acids, hydrocarbons,
heavy metals and other toxic
elements sweeping out of
European chimneys and into the
atmosphere. The prevailing
winds sweep many of these pol-
lutants down across the
Mediterranean to the coast of
Israel.
But. within a few miles of
landfall, the surface air runs
into the pine forests. Through
the past century JNF has
planted more than 160 million
trees in Israel and the great
majority of these are Jerusalem
pines.
A critical feature of this pine
species is its long, soft, needle-
shaped leaves. When viewed
through a microscope, its easy
to understand why these pine
needles are among the most ef-
ficient natural air purifiers of
.earth. First, each needle looks
like a miniature cactus with

many rows of barbs and spines
growing along its length. Next,
one notices two slender grooves
running near the margins of the
needle. These are resin ducts
which exude a sticky substance
that coats the entire needle. The
resulting vegetation is a natural
web which is capable of sifting
vast amounts of microscopic
pollution particles out of the air
both by entangling tiny specks
in the myriad thorns and hooks,
and by simply causing the
particulate matter to adhere to
the sticky resin.
Strollers in a Jerusalem pine
forest can confirm this just by
running their fingers along any
pine needle. It will feel coarser
than most other pine needles,
and a bit tacky. And chances
are that, in running a finger
along a needle, the visitor will
remove a noticeable amount of
former air pollution from it.
The average Jerusalem pine
has a network of needles which,
if laid end to end, would extend
more than ten miles. Multiply
this by several million, and one
gains some appreciation of that
extraordinary natural filter west
of Jerusalem.
But in addition to removing
impurities from the air, the pine
forests also improve its quality.
First, all those trees are photo-
synthesizing and therefore
enriching the air's oxygen
content. Indeed. JNF forests
produce many times over the
amount of oxygen consumed by
Israel's population and thus
constantly contribute to our
planet's reserves of this precious
element.
Also, the trees are constantly
releasing water vapor into the
atmosphere, and this has a
double benefit. It incrases the
relative humidity of the air
which is very desirable during

the parched summers of the
Middle East and it contri-
butes a distinct cooling effect,
since the trees' liquids consume
many calories of heat aa they
evaporate. Air flowing beyond
the forest belts into Jerusalem
is therefore cleaner, richer and
cooler than that which originally
blew in from the coast.
