Campaign hovers around the
$1,000,000 mark, efforts by cam-

continuing to bring the 1986 cam-

the end of April.
According to Doug Conn, 1986
Campaign Chairman, "we are
making every effort to reach our
goal of $1.3 million before the
month is over. There are still a
number of pledges that have not

Programs for Passover
We are extremely proud of our high school students who are
doing all kinds of outstanding things.
Wendy Raber is one such superstar. A Tampa Prep senior and
the daughter of Dr. Douglas and Nancy Raber, Wendy was nam-
ed Player of the Year for Hillsborough County by the Tampa
Tribune after she led the Girls Volleyball team to win the State
Class 1A Championship. She was also a starter on the Varsity
Girls Basketball team and is currently playing outfield on the soft-
ball team. You'll also find Wendy's name on the Headmaster's
List last semester for her outstanding grade point average. And
in February she was chosen to be an attendant in the Homecom-
ing Court. She'll soon be traveling to Chicago, Minneapolis and
New Orleans to play Club Volleyball. And any day now she'll be
hearing from the college of her choice. Whew, I get tired just typ-
ing this! -------
Congratulations and a blue ribbon went to Jennifer Kalish,
daughter of William and Patty Kalish. A junior at Tampa Prep,
Jennifer's photograph entitled "Atlantis" was honored at the
Gulf Coast Regional Scholastic Art Exhibition sponsored by
Robinson's of Florida in February.
Last December, Tampa Prep art, music and drama students
were the focus of An Evening of the Arts. Beautiful performances
by jazz musicians, music history students and the wind and string
ensemble blended with individual performances. Among the musi-
cians entertaining that night were oboist Fran Cohen, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Cohen and Robert Solomon, violinist,
son of Karen and Marvin Solomon. Both Fran and Robert are in
the 10th grade. _____
Another talented go-getter is Elisha Cohen, daughter of Pat-
ti and Mark Cohen, an 11th grader at Tampa Prep. Elisha won
two awards recently at the District IX Thespian Competition with
14 schools represented: an Excellent Rating for her Duet Pan-
tomime and a Showcase Rating for her Duet musical from Mame.
This past year she was the Manager of the Varsity Boys Basket-
ball team, carrying balls, equipment, medical kits, etc., to all the
games ... and having a lot of fun.
In a ceremony last month, Berkeley Prep inducted new
members into the National Honor Society. To be considered for
the National Honor Society, a student must have a minimum
cumulative average in the "A" range, demonstrate leadership
abilities, participate in a service activity outside the school and
uphold principles of morality and ethics. Among the new in-
ductees were juniors: Lisa Fabricant, daughter of Nancy and
Neil Fabricant. Jeff Freedman, son of Sandy and Michael
Freedman. Jonathon Gilbert, son of Jean and Leonard Gilbert.
Rinne Groff, daughter of Dr. Stephen and Ena Groff, David
Shaw, son of Drs. Kalie and Maurice Shaw. Marty Sokol, son of
Dr. Gerald and Ann Sokol. Jennifer Tobin, daughter of Marsha
and Vernon She. man and Leslie Verkauf, daughter of Dr.
Barry and Arline Verkauf. Mazol tov to you all!!
"Bells are Ringing" was the traditional spring musical
presented by students at Berkeley Prep last month. Students
from grades 9-12 made up the cast, which includes the Berkeley
Singers and the Drama Workshop class. David Leibowitz, 9th
grader and son of Blossom and Ed Leibowitz played Carl, a
delivery man who brought packages to Susanwserphone. Among
the dancers, chorus, extras, drama techs, art class students and
ushers in this terrific production were: Stephanie Fleischer,
Allison Berger, Susie Sokol, Karyn Sper, Jonathon Gilbert,
Toba Minkin, David Fleischer, Suzanne Gilbert (Assistant
Director), Leslie Verkauf, Lisa Goldman, Aaron Germain,
Angela Cohen, Jeremy Weiss, Andrew Cohen (Drop Design),
Meryl Chen and Caryn Zielonka.
Time Top Twenty. USF student Ed Glauser was named one of
the top 20 college juniors in the country by Time magazine, and
was presented with a $3,000 award last month. Ed, a 22-year-old
international studies major from Largo, founded the USF chapter
of the Overseas Development Network, a national organization
committed to ending global hunger and poverty. When a volcano
erupted and devastated Armero, Columbia in November, Ed
rallied the chapter to raise a half million dollars for relief efforts.
This plus his academic record convinced Time to select him as one
of 20 out of 750 applicants from throughout the country, the only
Florida student.
The son of Sy and Helen Glauser is presently continuing his
humanitarian work by volunteering at the Metropolitan
Ministeries in Tampa. He's quite a guy!
Flying high in the 39th Annual FSU Circus Home Show is
Sharon Lane, daughter of Dr. Walter and Nancie Lane. Many of
you will remember Sharon as an instructor at the JCC in gym-
nastics and a teaching assistant from 1980-85. Sharon was a stu-
dent at the University of Tampa at the time. She has now received
her pin marking her as a full-fledged FSU Circus member, after
performing a unique, physically demanding aerial ballet 45 feet
above a spellbound audience, with a four-member casting team.
Congratulations and wow!_____

other interested parties will spend
their summer vacations.
Dr. James Strange, dean of the

Pope John Paul
Rome's Jews Made Elaborate Plans
ROME (JTA) Rome's
Jewish community, the
oldest diaspora community
in Europe was agog last
week with preparations for
one of the major events of
its 2,000-year history the
visit by Pope John Paul II
Sunday to the main
synagogue near the banks of
the Tiber.
The Polish born Pontiff was the
first Pope ever to set foot into a
Jewish house of worship. Apart
from being an historic precedent,
the visit has had tremendous sym-
bolic implications and may prove
to be a giant step in the long, ar-
duous, and sometimes painful
journey toward Jewish-Catholic
reconciliation, begun at Vatican
Council II 20 years ago.
ROME'S 18,000 Jews, while
elated, also have misgivings and a
strong sense of skepticism about
what the Papal visit will ac-
complish. Those feelings derive
from historical memories of
religious and personal humilia-
tions under Papal rule, from
theological anti-Semitism over the
centuries and from their strong
emotional ties to the State of
Israel which the Vatican still
declines to recognize.
Nevertheless, preparations for
the visit were at fever pitch last
week. The main synagogue
became like the backstage of a
theater rehearsing for a premier
performance. There were a dozen
directors, organized into a dozen
ad hoc committees, each assigned
a special task press relations,
ceremonials, invitations, pro-
grams and even traffic direction.

established in dose cooperation
between Vatican officials, Rome's
Chief Rabbi Elio Toaff and other
leaders of the Jewish community.
It was' aimed at conveying a
spiritual message while adhering
to the strict limits required by

There was a religious
"meeting," not a regular "ser-

seated with men, which is normal-
ly not the case in a synagogue run

Captain Goldman's Yarmulke
Jill L. Kahn is an assistant
director of the Legal Affairs
Department ofADL 's Civil Rights
Chief Justice Earl Warren,
more than 20 years ago, noted
that "our citizens in uniform may
not be stripped of basic rights
simply because they have doffed
their civilian clothes." The obser-
vant will be put to the test this
year when the Supreme Court
decides in the Goldman v.
Weinberger case whether the
government can prohibit a
religiously observation Air Force
captain from wearing a yarmulke
on duty.
The Anti-Defamation League
has filed an amieus brief suppor-
ting the right to wear a yarmulke
while in uniform. The brief argues
that the fundamental right to
freely exercise one's religious
beliefs guaranteed by the First
Amendment must, in this case,
take precedence over Air Force
dress regulations.
Captain Simcha Goldman, who
brought the issue to the Court's
attention, is an Orthodox rabbi
and served for two years as a
Navy chaplain. In 1979, after com-
pleting a PhD in psychology under
the Armed Forces Health Profes-
sions Scholarship Program, Cap-
tain Goldman entered the Air
Force as a clinical psychologist.
For the next three years, he wore
a yarmulke at all times while on
duty (mainly in the base hospital).
He received consistently outstan-
ding performance evaluations, in-
cluding specific ratings on at-
titude, dress, cooperation and
bearing. No objection was raised
regarding his religious practice.
In 1981, however, when Captain
Goldman testified as a defense
witness at a court-martial pro-
ceeding, the hospital commandant
received a complaint alleging that
wearing a yarmulke while in
uniform violated Air Force dress
regulations. (The regulation, AFR
35-10, sets forth detailed provi-
sions regarding the wearing of
headgear and includes the follow-
ing: "(2) Headgear will not be
worn:.. (f) While indoors except
by armed security police in the
performance of their duties.")
The commandant subsequently
ordered the captain to cease wear-
ing his yarmulke while in uniform
on the base, withdrew a positive
recommendation for his service
extension and threatened a court-
martial if he continued his
religious practice. Captain
Goldman filed suit in a federal
district court to enjoin the
military from applying AFR
35-10, as it "related to his wearing
a yarmulke for religious reasons."
At the trial, District Judge
Aubrey E. Robinson, Jr. analyzed
the competing and seemingly an-
tithetical claims of the Air Force
and Captain Goldman. Expert
witnesses for the military testified
that adherence to AFR 35-10 is
necessary to ensure the re-
quirements of an effective and ef-
ficient fighting force: teamwork,
motivaton, discipline, esprit de
corps and image. The military con-

tended that any departure from
the regulation would adversely af-
fect these goals. Judge Robinson,
however, found that this argu-
ment was not supported by
evidence. The Captain's wearing
of a yarmulke did not adversely a?
feet his performance, or the
operations of the base hospital. In
fact, Judge Robinson declared, ex-
ceptions to AFR 35-10 for
legitimate reasons "may enhance
the effectiveness of the Air Force
by dissipating hostility over minor
matters and thus contribute to a
perception of the Air Force as a
less rigid, more humane institu-
tion." The district court granted
Captain Goldman's request for an
injunction against the military.
The Air Force appealed the
district court's decision and won a
reversal by the district of Colum-
bia Court of Appeals. While the
appellate court describes the
regulations as "necessarily ar-
bitrary," it ruled that the "Air
Force's interest in uniformity
renders the strict enforcement of
its regulation permissible" even
against competing free exercise
The appellate court decision was
disturbing, not only in its rejec-
tion of Captain Goldman's claims,
but also in its near-reflexive
deference to military expertise. In
its Supreme Court brief, ADL
argues that this deference is
misplaced: "In constitutional mat-
ters, the Court and not the
military is the expert." The brief
asserts that while ADL recognizes
the particular concerns of the
military, its unique role in national
security, and its expertise in
creating and maintaining combat
forces, of concern is that the ap-
pellate court's total deferral to
military judgment would ar-
bitrarily strip service personnel of
First Amendment rights.
Following the Court of Appeals
decision, Congress directed the
Secretary of Defense to conduct a
study on overall religious accom-
modation in the military, with a
view toward broadening current
policies. Testifying before the
Department of Defense joint
study group organized as a result,
ADL, in conjunction with the
Commission on Law and Public
Affairs (COLPA), argued that,
despite the significant and par-
ticular concerns for discipline,
security and uniformity in the
military, greater accommodation
of religious practices (such as the
wearing of a yarmulke) could be
Unfortunately, the final report
and recommendation fell substan-
tially short of ADL hopes and
Congressional expectations.
While there was progress in a few
areas, the military remained rigid
on many other issues of concern.
The following are the final recom-
focuses on
of religious
mendations which
specific categories
Ritual: Positive
were found in accommodating
religious ritual but merely recom-
mended that regulations
acknowledge that Sabbath obser-
vances is not only a Sunday
Diet: Religious dietary re-
quirements were also found to be
relatively easy to accommodate,
at least on the premises of
military bases. The group recom-
mended the continued use of
separate and supplemental
Medical: Focusing mainly on
immunization, blood transfusions
and surgery, the study group did
not find religion-based medical
needs problematic. The recom-
mendations, however, were not
expansive. The study group said
immunization waivers should con-
tinue to be allowed in peacetime
under garrison situations, but
were not feasible under wartime
conditions. Exemptions from
transfusions, surgery and other
conventional medical treatment
were found to be burdensome in
peacetime and "intolerably
stressful" in major conflict.
Dress and Appearance: This
was the category where ADL
hoped for the most improvement,
but saw the least. Apparently,
buoyed by the Court of Appeals
decision in Goldman, the study
group relied on the frequently
cited military concerns for unifor-
mity, esprit de corps, discipline,
health and safety. The bottom line
recommendation was to suggest
that specific living spaces be
designated where yarmulkes
could be worn with a uniform
when there is a determination
that it will not have an adverse im-
pact on unit cohesion.
How does this translate into
practice for an individual such as
Captain Goldman? At the discre-
tion of his unit or base com-
mander, he might be allowed to
wear his yarmulke in certain
areas of his own living quarters.
The question is whether the
military study group's recommen-
dations will satisfy Congress. If
not, legislation will surely be in-
troduced and debated which
reflects civilians' ideas on
religious accommodation in the
military service.
Before Congress acts, however,
the Supreme Court will have an
opportunity to resolve at least a
portion of the dispute. While the
issue before the Court in Goldman
v. Weinberg is factually limited to
yarmulke accommodation, the
decision may have a broader im-
pact on other religious practices in
the military.
Seeking a favorable ruling in
the Goldman case, ADL argues
that under many Supreme Court
precedents, "the Air Force is re-
quired to make a reasoned deter-
mination of its ability to relax
dress regulations where necessary
to accommodate religious freedom
. and ... to permit the wearing
of a yarmulke."

We read in the Passover nar-
rative that after enduring the
visitation on his people of ten
brutal plagues, Pharaoh is at last
going to release the Israelite
slaves from bondage. The chains
are released. But, when we read
the story carefully, we realize that
in fact the chains have not disap-
peared no Pharaoh instead
wears them!
It is the Pharaoh who is enslav-
ed by his hunger for power and his
greed for possessions. He cannot
break his habit in manipulating
and enslaving people. Again and
again, after each plague lifted
than he suffers a relapse. To use
the biblical phrase, his heart
grows hard. Even after the final
bloody plaque persuades him to
release the slaves, he reverts to
his old habits and pursues the
Israelites to his watery grave. The
chains of our people in Egypt
were ultimately broken, but the
Pharaoh never freed himself.
Alphonse de Lamartine, the
19th Century French Poet and
politician could have been speak-
ing of the Pharaoh when he
declared: "Man never fastened
one end of a chain around the neck
of his brother, that God did not
fasten the other end around the
neck of the oppressors."
In this land of freedom we are
neither oppressors nor oppressed
in the political sense. Never-
theless, many of us are slaves.
Rabbi David Rose
And the most distressing part of
our enslavement is that the chains
we wear we have forged for
ourselves, as the Pharaoh forged
his own.
Some of us are the slaves of
destructive habits and crippling
fears. Some are imprisoned by un-
worthy ambitions and shabby pur
suits. Some are held captive by
the relentless drive for power or
wealth. Others are chained by
suspicions, superstrictions, pre-
judices. We permit a host of inner
tyrants to keep us in bondage.
As we read once again this
Pesach the ancient biblical drama
of liberation, we are powerfully
reminded that God wants each of
us to be free. He summons us to be
masters not of others, but of
"Who is a hero?" the Jewish
sages asked. The answer: "He
who masters himself?
May we all this Passover
become such heroes. Best wishes
for a Chag Kasher Ve Sameach, a
very happy and fulfilling Pesach.

Passover Message
Council of Jewish Federations
Passover celebrates the libera
tion of the Jewish people from
their slavery in Egypt. This year
we are overjoyed to be able to
celebrate the liberation of one of
our people, Anatoly Sharansky,
from his bondage in the Soviet
Union. Finally, for him, the hope
expressed at the end of every
seder, "Next year in Jerusalem,"
has come true.
Many of you joined our steady
stream of protest at the Soviet
Embassy during the CJF General
Assembly last year in November,
on the eve of the Summit .Con-
ference in Geneva at which
Sharansky's release was
negotiated. Avital Sharansky
spoke to us then, and we were
renewed in our determination to
help her and the cause for which
she had become a symbol.
But we cannot rest on our
laurels. There are thousands more
who, like Sharansky, yearn to
leave the Soviet Union for Israel
or other countries where they can
live as Jews in freedom.
It is our great fortune to live in
freedom in North America. This
year we are being reminded of
that freedom in a particularly
moving way, as we celebrate the
100th anniversary of the Statue of
Liberty the powerful symbol of
freedom that was the first glimpse
of America for so many of our
But let us not forget those who
are still straggling to attain the
freedom that we sometimes take
for granted. And let us not forget
those who still need our help to at-
tain the necessities of life, in-
cluding food, clothing, housing,
education and health care,
through the funds that we raise
and the services that we provide,
both here and abroad.
In this spring season, a time of
rebirth and renewal, we need to
renew our determination as well,
that we will continue to help our
Jewish brothers and sisters who
are oppressed, whether by politics
or by poverty, anywhere in the
world. In so doing, we strengthen
our own Jewish communities, by
ensuring the survival of the
Jewish people.
Nowhere is our need to main-
tain Jewish strength and survival
more evident than in Israel.
There, in particular, we must con-
tinue to extend our help and sup-
port for those who need us and
work to ensure that "Next year in
Jerusalem" will always be a real
option and not a dream.
Cm behalf of the Council of
Jewish Federations, I extend
warmest greetings for the
Passover season and wish you the
blessings of health, happiness and

Rome's Jews Made Elaborate Plans
Continued from Page 4
Jews are shop and boutique
owners, most of them descen-
dants of humble rag peddlers forc-
ed to observe dusk-to-dawn
curfews imposed on the ghetto by
Papal decree until 1870. Even
later, they were subjected to forc-
ed sermons in "ghetto churches"
and occasional forced conversion
of their children. Perhaps the only
Roman Jews who do not have an
ingrained resentment against the
"pre-conciliar church" are
refugees from Libya, expelled by
Moammar Khadafy in 1967.
The Vatican's failure to
recognize Israel is another issue
Jews find difficult to reconcile. A
young Sephardic woman of Egyp-
tian origin told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency: "The Pope
in our synagogue. When I heard, I
was very happy. I thought, how
beautiful. Now all the priests in
the world will take the Pope as an
example and convey a new respect
for the Jewish faith and people to
their congregations. Anti-Semitic
feelings will die out.
"BUT THEN my friends made
me reflect. The Vatican still
doesn't recognize Israel. To me,
Israel is like a mother. How can
the Pope come into my home and
not recognize my mother? He
makes me feel offended for her."
There are also unresolved issues
on the religious level. Although
John Paul II has received more
Jews in audience than any of his
predecessors and has made
numerous, moving references to
the Holocaust, his theology of the
Old Testament as expressed by
homilies and Vatican documents
not directly related to Christian-
Jewish relations contain frequent
lapses into pre-conciliar linguistic
concepts of Judaism that are not
in harmony with the principles
laid down by Noatra Aetate and
the two subsequent documents on
Christian-Jewish relations pro-
mulgated by the Holy See's Com-
mission for Relations With
Jews/Secretariat for Promoting
Christian Unity.
This evaluation has often been
expressed by Jewish leaders and
experts in interreligious relations
and frequent requests have been
made that more sensitivity be
shown for the Jewish religious
MANY JEWISH leaders feel
that John Paul's doubtlessly
sincere message of warmth
toward the Jewish people occa-
sionally comes through distorted,
or, at best, harnessed to his own
or his advisors' theological
conditioning, and the Vatican
failure to give diplomatic recogni-
tion to Israel.
It is an open secret that the
Pope consults with experts in
writing his speches which may
explain apparent contradictions
between one speech and another.
Expectations therefore ran high
that the Pope's address to the
Jewish community Sunday would
be guided by concepts developed
by the Vatican's Commission on
Religious Relations with the Jews
and would compensate for recent
Still another issue are the
strong Jewish feelings against the
construction of a Carmelite con-
vent at the Auschwitz death camp
site. Toaff sent a letter to the
Pope several weeks ago, signed
also by the Chief Rabbis of Bri-
tain, France, Strasbourg, Zurich
and Rumania, noting that since
the rabbis of Europe "consider
this initiative inadequate to sanc-
tify a territory that is desecrated
and cursed by the murder of four
million martyrs, more than half of
them Jews," no one faith should
construct anything there. So far
there has been no response from
the Vatican.

predicts the frequency will be
similar to other hemoglobin
variants, which he said is one-
in-1,000,000, or approximately
2,000 persons in the U.S.
Because Hemoglobin South
Florida gives a false indication of
elevated blood sugar levels, Shah
said, it is possible there are adults
being treated for diabetes who do
not have the disease. He said the
chances of children being
mistakenly given the hormone in-
sulin because of the false diabetes

reading is even greater.
"In the case of children, you are
very likely to use insulin," Shah
He said he didn't tink there are
thousands being treated because
of the false reading but that,
"there is certainly more than
The major implication of the
USF discovery, Shah said, is that
patients with a mild case of
diabetes may be mistakenly
treated as if they have a severe
form of the disease. By using the
false data to lower blood sugar
levels doctors could inadvertently
send a patient into insulin shock
which could, in very rare cases,
lead to death, Malone said.
Diabetes, according to USF
medical officials, is a disease
where the body is unable to con-
vert blood sugar, in the form of
glyoose, into energy. The normal
causes for this failure are either
the body doesn't produce insulin,
which helps in the process, or the
body doesn't use the insulin that is
To check for diabetes, doctors
use HA1C and other tests to
measure the amount of glucose in
the blood. This is done by counting
the amount of glycosylated
hemoglobin, which is an in-
separable fusion between the iron-
carrying blood protein
hemoglobin and glucose
However, Shah said, no knwon
variants were found. Next came
two highly-specific and
nonroutine tests which isolated
the new Hemoglobin South
Florida. They began checking
family members and found 12
relatives of the boy whose blood
contained Hemoglobin South
Florida. Shah said one uncle had
both the hemoglobin variant and
diabetes, so that his diabetes ap-
peared more severe than it was.
Shah said rather than treating
him with insulin, the uncle was
put on a diet and exercise regimen
which brought his blood sugar
level into the normal range.
After initial findings, the
researchers called on biochemists
at Harvard University to help
identify the chemical structure of
Hemoglobin South Florida. Their
findings were presented in
February and will soon be
presented to the organization's
national meeting to be held in
Washington, D.C. in May.

The contrasts were so
sharp that they were almost
shocking. The little lady,
standing alone in the bare
hotel hallway, might have
been overwhelmed if it had
not been for her brilliant
yellow knit suit.
And the bright gold of the
woman'8 hair might have carried
one's eye straight up past her
small face without stopping, had it
not been for the black and white
polkadot scarf around her neck.
But everything worked, and the
familiar face, with its generous
mouth and its friendly eyes,
jumped briskly into focus.
"IT'S NICE to meet you," the
woman said, offering a
diminutive, gratifyingly firm
handshake. The voice coming up
from that 4-foot, 7-inch brightness
spoke in the same enthusiastic,
mittel-European accent that we
have heard when its owner is

But there was little time for con-
versation. A regular-sized lady
poked her head in at the door and
motioned the Munchkin-like
figure into the next room, and
within a few minutes was in-
troducing her to an audience of
500 people who had recently come
to spend "An Evening With Dr.
Ruth," sponsored by the United
Jewish Appeal Federation of
Washington, Women's Division,
at the Capital Hilton.
She was, she told the crowd,
standing on a "Bar Mitzvah box"
to reach the microphone so she
could deliver her talk on "Sexuali-
ty and the Jewish Tradition," a
potpourri of anecdotes, opinions
and (of course) explicit advice to
the curious, perplexed or sexually
was a somewhat more formal ver-
sion of her radio and television
shows, except that its orientation,
in keeping with the character of
the audience, had a Jewish flavor.
Some samples:
"It is perfectly permissible for
us Jews to talk about these mat-
ters (sex) explicitly." The Bible,
the Torah and the Mishnah specify
the necessity for frank discussion.
"The Jewish husband has
three obligations, promised under
the chuppah: to provide food,
shelter and sexual gratification."
"The sages were so smart.
They said that if a man marries a
short wife, he should bend down
and listen to her." (Dr. Ruth
thought that was particularly apt)
About Purim: "Vashti knew
about sex. She refused to sleep
with Ahasuerus when he was
drunk and might beat her. Vashti
should be celebrated, not only
,Mne Song of Songs, the most
sensual book of the Bible, is read

against threesomes and group sex
and open marriage. They don't
THEN WHAT is a healthy at-
titude toward sex?
"I think we took the first step
tonight," she said, "by sitting
around and talking openly, so that
people will see that if they have a
problem, there is help available.
And by talking about things ex-
plicitly, the way we talk about
diet. We in this country talk about
bathroom habits. A physician is
going to ask, 'How is your
bathroom habit? How is your
bowel movement? Everything.
But we are not training physicians
to ask about sexual life."
Furthermore, "One cannot do
therapy on the air. All I do is
educate and give some general ad-
vice. Really, all people want is
mental affirmation." And her suc-
cess, she says, "is not just because
I can talk. It's because of the need
in our society."
Has all of her advice-giving
done anything for her own sex
life? (Dr. Westheimer has been
married to Fred Westheimer, an
engineer and her third husband,
for 24 years and has two children,
Miriam, 29, and Joel, 22.)
"It has improved my skill," she
said with a mischievous giggle.
"Because all that I say about tak-
on Friday night, the night when it
is a mitzvah to have sex.''
"The sages were wise. They
knew that a woman's sexual
satisfaction affects the whole

contraception. The Bible does not
say that sex is only for

required by Jewish law) can be

permit the stories about Jewish
women being interested only in
sex before marriage. There is no
difference between a Jewish
woman and, say, an Italian
Neither, according to Dr.
Westheimer, do Jewish men have
unique sexual problems. "They
are the same as everyone else's.
"I think we should bring back
the institution of matchmaking.
We Jews don't do enough to be
really effective with getting peo-
ple together. When all of this is
over, when I'm not going to be Dr.
Ruth any more, I really would like
to do something about matchmak-
ing. The old tradition of mat-
chmaking should be reinstated."
BUT THERE are some so-
called traditional attitudes that
should be done away with, accor-
ding to Dr. Westheimer, one of
them being the idea that elderly
people are not or should not be in-
terested in sex.
"I do sex therapy with people
over 65," she said. "I do believe,
for people in nursing homes, that
there has to be some arrangement
for dating rooms. There should be
a room with a fireplace and a
television and something to drink
and a sign outside 'Do Not
Disturb' so that people can go
in there and neck and pet and ac-
tually have sex."
To those who find her ex
plicitness offensive, and feel that
"Sexually Speaking" should not
be broadcast, Dr. Westheimer
says, "I respect your opinion.
Move your dial. Right next to me
on Sunday nights is a station with
classical musk."
always so outspoken. She cofesses
that if someone had told her when
she arrived in the United States
30 years ago that she would be
saying the things she does on na-
tional radio and television, she
would have laughed at him.

Dr. Ruth Westheimer was born in Ger-
many in 1928. She is Israeli-bred, a
former kindergarten teacher, a graduate
of the Sorbonne in Paris and a member of
the Hagannah.
She holds a PhD degree from Columbia
University and an MA degree in sociology
from the New School for Social Research.

the New York Hospital-Cornell Medical
Center, she is a consultant at the New

years. She never saw her parents
again and assumes that they were
killed in a concentration camp.
In 1945, Ruth Karola Siegel
emigrated to Israel, worked on a
kibbutz, married and divorced,
'suffered leg wounds in a shelling
and traveled to Paris, where she
earned a degree in psychology at
the Sorbonne, married again and
had her daughter, Miriam.
In 1966, again divorced, she
took Miriam to the United States,
and within three years had earned
a Master's degree at the New
School for Social Research.
THERE, she became involved
in the Planned Parenthood
"When I worked in Planned
Parenthood," she said, "I very
fast decided that this is a very
good profesison for me to go into.
I had been in public health. I
wasn't dealing with human sex-
uality. What has happened now is
a combination of my being well
trained and willing to speak ex-
plicitly on the need in society."
That felt need has steered Dr.
Westheimer into very specific
directions. One of these is a
definite sense of the kinds of ques-
tions she will answer and the kind
of advice she should give.
And contrary to the impression
that her attitude toward sex is
libertine and impression that is
bolstered by Dr. Westheimer's
opinion that she is in favor of
"anything that two consenting
adults do in the privacy of their
bedroom, living room or kitchen
floor" she said, "I'm rather old
ing risks and letting yourself go
and various body movements cer-
tainly has helped my skill."
IN AN impish aside during her
speech recently, Dr. Westheimer
said that she never lets her hus-
band attend her lectures, because
he would be sure, during the
question-and-answer session, to
get up and say, "Don't listen to
this woman. She's all talk."
Dr. Westheimer is frankly
delighted with the success of her
radio talk show which was recent-
ly sold on a syndicated basis to the
Armed Forces Network and 30
other markets. And her standard
fee for speaking engagements is
$18,000. She likes the money, and
"it's lots of fun to have the hair-
dresser, the clothes, the
The only thing that bothers her
is that when she goes siding, peo-
ple call to her from the chair lifts,
and she knows that if she looks up
and waves, she will fall.
IT'S ALL very exciting, but
when all the hoopla is over, Dr.
Westheimer will be in control.
"I'm very realistic," she said. "I
have two feet on the ground. I
never would give up my private
practice. I never would give up my
university affiliations.
"But I do know that after a
while the radio and television peo-
ple are going to say, 'Thank you
very much and goodbye.' Then
Pm going to do what I did before.
I'm going to continue my private
practice, and I'm going to do lec-
turing. I'll probably look for a
university affiliation."

nearly 40 years later.
The year was 1947. We were liv-

country with four military occupa-

employed by the United Nations

(UNRRA). Her job was to accom-
pany displaced persons transports
from Vienna to Salzburg, a job
that allowed her also to visit her
mother, who was living in a DP

We had been married less than a
year. Our backgrounds were

Lithuania, where my wife was
born and raised.
The day this story began I had
to attend to some affairs in Paris.
Ceil was making a trip to Salzburg
and back for UNRRA. We hated
separations but little did we
dream that it would be weeks
before we would see each other
again. On Ceil's return trip, she
had to pass through the demarca-
tion line where the American tone
ended and the Russian sector
began. After passing American in-
spection, she had to repeat the
procedures with the Russians and
that's when the trouble began. As
my wife, she was an Austrian
citizen and held an identification
card in four languages. However,
when the Russians saw the listing
of her birthplace, Kovno,
Lithuania, she was asked to step
down from the train with her
belongings. The soldier said to
her. "You are a Russian citizen.
What are you doing here?" She
responded that she was not Rus-
sian but Lithuanian-born and now
married to an Austrian and a
citizen of Austria. She asked him
to let her go. He refused.
Under armed guard, she was
taken to the nearest Russian-
administered city, St Poelten, 60
kilometers from Vienna. There, in
a Russian headquarters building,
she was placed in the cellar ankle
deep in water. The next day she
was taken to a nearby Russian
camp filled with people of all na-
tionalities, where she was inter-
rogated for weeks by officers of
the NKVD (now the KGB). The in-
terrogator kept telling her that
she would return to Russia, marry
a Russian, and forget about ber
life in Austria.
"Forget your Austrian hus-
band," he said. "You will work as
a nurse near the Black Sea and
you wiD find happiness in the
Imagine, if you can, a concen-
tration camp survivor, a religious
Jew, being told over and over
again to forget her marriage vows
and her husband and to "go back
home." What he meant by
"home" still brings shudders of
fright and anger to us both, even
40 years later.
Ceil's request to write to me
was granted but I never received
the letter and had no idea where
she was. Transports left the camp
every day and Ceil became more
frightened, even suicidal, as she
saw no end to her incarceration.
The only way out, she feared, was
One day, an Austrian truck
driver, who delivered coal to the
camp, agreed to take a message to
our neighbors, who believed that
she was at Bad Gastein with her
mother. The truck driver took a
tremendous chance, of course. I
am sorry to say that I never had
the opportunity to thank this
brave, decent man. He got Ceil's

News From ADL
NEW YORK, N.Y. How do
you respond to a United Nations
report that is full of "distortions,
misrepresentations and inac-
curacies involving Israel?"
This was the problem faced by
Dr. Mala Tabory, an Israeli legal
scholar and social scientist, when
she read a UN Secretariat report
on "The Situation of Women and
Children Living in the Occupied
Territories and other Arab Ter-
ritories. The report had been
prepared for presentation at the
world conference in Nairobi,
Kenya, concluding the UN's
1975-85 Decade for Women.
Dr. Tabor discussed -her
response at a meeting recently
with staff members of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith. What was required, she
said, was "a balanced picture of
the status of Palestinian women in
the West Bank and Gaza their
situation, achievements and
So, backed by funding from the
Jacob Blaustein Institute for the
Advancement of Human Rights,
she prepared a study untilizing ob-
jective academic sources and
research gained by actually
visiting and interviewing Palesti-
nian women.
Dr. Tabory felt that her per-
sonal and professional
background as well as her sense of
justice had prepared her for the
task. Born in Luneburg, West
Germany, she had lived in
Switzerland before coming to the
United States and New York City
at the age of 12, where she was
graduated from Yeshiva High
School and Barnard University
before making aliyah to Israel in
1969. Subsequently, she earned a
Master's and a Doctorate in Inter-
national Relations at the Hebrew
University, interned at the United
Nations, taught International
Law and International Institu-
tions at Hebrew University, and
now teaches at Tel Aviv Universi-
ty. She is also assistant editor of
the Israel Year Book on Human
In addition, because she is a
woman, she had kept up with UN
documents on the status of
Palestinian women and had paid
close attention to Israeli Supreme
Court decisions involving human
rights as they applied to the
Her report, "Perspectives on
Palestian Women," was provided
to the participants from the
democratic countries at the
Nairobi conference and enabled
them to refute the UN report
point by point. In it, Dr. Tabory
said the Secretariat document
was "unworthy of an institution
that purports to deal seriously and
objectively with the status of
She condemned the "poorly
researched" UN report for "not
acknowledging progress in terms
of greatly improved quality of life,
standard of living, literacy and
other criteria" and for not offer-
ing "concrete suggestions" on
how additional progress could be
made. She also pointed out that
the report's data was outdated
and simply based on a compen-
dium of previous "unsubstan-
tiated" UN reports.
She noted, too, that the UN
report singled out the situation in
the West Bank while the condition
of Arab women and children is
far more acute" in other areas of
tne Middle Bast. "Israel was
castigated," she said, "for merely
respecting the traditions of local
Arab populations."
Dr. Tabory spent considerable
time in both the West Bank and
^aza talking to as many Arab
women as she could in their homes
and their working places. What
ane found from speaking to pro-
fessionals, workers and those who
supervised and employed them
was a clash of cultures.
This clash, she said, was sym-
bolized by the "younr Palestinian
girls wearing modern jeans
beneath their traditional Arab
dresses." She described the con-
trast as a dichotomy "between the
maintenance of tradition and a
desire for progress."
What struck her most forcibly
as she pursued her research was
the paucity of information about
Arab women in the territories
even though the political and legal
status of the West Bank and Gaza
"had been the focus of world at-
tention ever since the Israeli ad-
ministration succeeded that of
Jordan in the wake of the Six-Dav
War." '
Dr. Tabory could find no serious
published material and whatever
information she obtained outide of
her own investigation, she said
"was fragmentary."
She pointed out that most of the
voluminous reports and
documents dealing with the area
"scareiy mention women at all"
and what statistical data is
available deals with such small
numbers as to be almost
"It is as if these women lead in-
visible lives," she said.
As she learned more and more
about Palestinian women, Dr.
Tabory perceived that they and
their problems were not uniform
and that they were affected by
their background rural or urban
and by their religion Moslem
and Christian.
"Those from the country," she
indicated, "could be distinguished
by their traditional costumes and
black kerchiefs to hide their hair
while city girls wore western
She went on to say, "Christian
girls are more modern, more in-
dependent, marry later and have
leas children than Moslem girls."
She said that the bask problem
is that the entire area is being af-
fected by the "intrusion of moder-
nity," including such im-
provements brought in by the
Israeli administration as schools,
more and better health facilities,
and jobs that Palestinian women
never did before.
Thus she stressed, much of the
criticism of Israel in the
Secretariat report really refers to
"the impact of modernity on a
traditional culture, the same pro-
blem which is facing all develop-
ing countries and peoples."
In concluding, Dr. Tabory
stressed that there are still many
problems for Arab women and
children in the West Bank and
Gaza but that it is the height of ir-
responsibility and a clear
demonstration of political bias to
single out Israel for blame.
NEW YORK The Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith called Spain's announce-
ment that it will grant full
diplomatic status to the Palestine
Liberation Organization "a great
In a cable to Francisco Fer-
nandez Ordonez, Spain's Foreign
Minister, ADL said that while
Spain could plav a useful role in
furthering Middle East peace
through its recent establishment
of diplomatic relations with Israel,
the action regarding the PLO is
"a setback toward that end."
The full text of the cable, signed
by Kenneth J. Bialkin, ADL's na-
tional chairman, Nathan Perlmut-
ter, national director, and
Abraham H. Foxman, associate
national director, follows:
"Spain's announcement that it
will grant the PLO full diplomatic
status comes as a great disap-
pointment. It is particularly

Bernhard Frankfurter's Mirror
Frank Reiss is director of the
European Affairs Department of
the Anti-Defamation League's In-
ternational Affairs Division.
"Rails aus Osterreich!" ("Out
of Austria!") read the rage-filled
letter sent recently by one
Austrian to another. It was
typical of the hate mail often ad-
dressed to my friend, filmmaker
Bernhard Frankfurter.
The writer scrawled every anti-
Semitic slur in the German
language as he blamed "Jews"
including Churchill, Roosevelt,
Truman and, of course, Bernhard
Frankfurter for all the ills of
the world.
Like Churchill, Roosevelt and
Truman, Bernhard Frankfurter is
not Jewish. Both a filmmaker and
writer, he is an Austrian whose
work holds a mirror to his coun-
trymen. Many don't like the
reflection and would like to hide
what it reveals:
A nation where deep-seated
anti-Semitism remains alive,
despite the fact that almost all of
Austria's Jews perished because
of an Austrian from the village of
A nation that not only hasn't
acknowledged its role in the Nazi
crimes, but considers itself a vic-
tim rather than a perpetrator;
A nation where right wing,
extremely nationalistic and anti-
Semitic groups like the National
Democratic Party, Action Neve
Rechte and dozens of smaller
organizations function today,
preaching hatred and intolerance.
Bernhard Frankfurter thinks
the world should know about
Austria's contribution during the
Hitler years to anti-Semitism,
fascism and national socialism. He
also wants to tell about present-
day anti-Semitism and neo-
Nazism in his country and the
Austrian pretensions of being
"just another victim of Nazism."
The filmmaker sees the
phenomenon of Austrian anti-
Semitism as unique, not only
because of its depth, but because
it traverses social classes, age
groups and the country's entire
geography. He sees Austria as a
textbook example of anti-
Semitism because it thrives there
without a statistically significant
presence of Jews.
Last year, Mr. Frankfurter
completed a television documen-
tary shown in Austria and Ger-
many. It did not endear him to the
anti-Semites of his native land.
Called "SS-Number ...," it
carried the subtitle "Final Station
Auschwitz An SS Doctor
Reports." The film recorded an in-
terview with Dr. Hans Wilhelm
Munch, who worked in Auschwitz
as an SS doctor between 1943 and
1945, when the murder machine
was going full speed, killing up to
10,000 people a day.
The testimony is awesome, as
these examples indicate:
Mr. Frankfurter: Daily acts of
murder, punishment and torture
took place .. and yet the place
had strict regulations for proper
treatment of prisoners. What was
the sense of all of this?
Dr. Munch: It was not some
kind of senseless discrepancy or
schizophrenia; it was abiding by
the camp laws prisoners were
not to be touched by members of
the SS. They were not allowed to
be abused for personal reasons.
They were to be dealt with accor-
ding to the rules. This meant. ..
Mr. Frankfurter: They were
to be tortured or beaten in the
"correct way"?
Dr. Munch: Torture was cor-
rect. In fact, it was not considered
torture but rather a form of
punishment. If, for example, a
prisoner committed an insignifi-
cant offense such as getting his
room dirty and punishment with
20 lashes led to eventual death,
that was correct handling and did
not go against rules.
Mr. Frankfurter asked Dr.
Munch to explain his statement
that the mass extermination in
Auschwitz was actually a "petty
and bureaucratic process ..
run like any typical official
Dr. Munch: For example, there
was one incident, I guess in the
summer of 1944 during a major
extermination procedure.
Transports of 450,000 people
were arriving from Hungary and
required housing for short periods
of time. Suddenly, a catastrophe
occurred. The gas and the other
necessary materials for execution
had run out. One transport of
prisoners after the other was ar-
riving and we were not able to
process them. The bureaucracy
had fallen apart. Something had
been bombed and deliveries had
not arrived.
So a sub-division leader, apart
from his duties, took a truck,
found two soldiers to accompany
him and drove to the factory, com-
pletely ignoring standard pro-
cedure. On arrival, they couldn't
get any gas because they didn't
have the necessary official permit.
What did they do? They threaten-
ed a factory employee, loaded the
vehicle with gas and returned.
That leader was the hero of the
day because he had rescued the
situation, apart from the
bureaucracy. It was probably
similar to the way it would be in a
civil system if the bureaucracy
happens to collapse and things
come to a standstill. Anyway,
that's an example if you want
Bernhard Frankfurter told me
of a recent experience that, even
to someone like me with a lifetime
of first-hand knowledge of lethal
anti-Semitism, sounded almost
He was part of a tour group
visiting Poland, including the
Auschwitz concentration camp.
One of the participants was a
woman who survived Auschwitz.
(She was not Jewish. The Nazis
suspected that she had had an il-
licit relationship with a Polish
slave laborer so they sent her to
Auschwitz.) The rest of the
tourists were ordinary Austrians.
After seeing Auschwitz, the
group stopped in a nearby
restaurant. The filmmaker had an
idea: what if these tourists, after
viewing the horrors that
Auschwitz still imparts, tried to
"role play" a discussion where
part of the group expressed revul-
sion at what Hitler did and the
other part defended his actions.
The Frankfurter camera would
record it as an educational film.
Agreed, they said, provided he
would provide real Polish vodka,
so they wouldn't feel inhibited!
Mr. Frankfurter provided the
requested stimulant. Before he
could prepare his camera, the
group was far beyond inhibition.
Half the amount of vodka would
have done the job. What the
camera recorded was not "role
playing," but members of the
group trying to beat one another
with "better" anti-Semitic
statements. Sentiments of hate
for Jews poured as freely as the
vodka that opened the wells of
The filmmaker has more plans.
There is a fresco in a Catholic
church in the Austrian Tyrol. It
depicts a ritual murder of a child.
Jews are the perpetrators. There
was a debate in the Austrian
media about this work of church
art. Not surprisingly it showed
how deep-rooted anti-Semitism is.
Bernhard Frankfurter wants
this controversy to be recorded
and studied. It deserves to be
aired, but...
"Such a film certainly cannot be
produced with Austrian money."
Mr. Frankfurter says.
He knows what he is talking

This Passover, the Jewish world
has witnessed the fulfillment of
the age-old dream, "Next Year in
Jerusalem" for Anatoly Sharan-
sky. His release from prison adds
greater significance to the
Festival of Freedom com-
memorating our ancestors' libera-
tion from Egyptian bondage.
However, we realize that for
many Jews in foreign lands,
freedom is still only a remote
dream. It is not yet a reality.
Was Scharansky's long-awaited
redemption a harbinger that other
dissidents and refusniks will be let
go in the future? We hope so. Or
was it a carefully contrived
political maneuver as part of a spy
exchange designed to placate
government officials and pacify
Jewish outrage over his seemingly
endless imprisonment?
Whatever the underlying
reasons that motivated Chairman
Gorbachev, we are thankful for
tys initiative. Nevertheless, we
must continue relentlessly to
struggle for the uncontestable
rights denied Soviet Jewry to live
as Jews freely and openly and, if
they so choose, to leave Russia for
the country of their choice. The
fight against religious coercion
and racial discrimination is a cons-
tant war to wage, notwithstan-
ding the battle we have won with
Scharansky. The Pesach holiday
reminds us that no one is truly
free until all Jews everywhere are

the ideal expressed in the Hag-

better than conquest and domi-

Menorah Manor
Planning Expanding Services
Menorah Manor Board Presi-
dent, Irwin H. Miller, announced
the appointment of an Advanced
Planning Committee, to develop
plans for new community services
to be offered by the Home.
"As Menorah Manor is reaching
full capacity, we do have a conti-
nuing obligation to provide quality
care and services for our elderly.
I (immunity services are an im-
mediate area where we can utilize
our existing services and staff,"
said Miller.
The Committee will be focusing
on the expansion of community
services, which do not require ad-
ditional major capital funding.
These services may include Day
Resident Programs, Hospica
Care, Oupatient Therapies, a
Geriatric Assessment Clinic, and
the sharing of services with
neighbor, Menorah Center. ,
"We have a way to go before
many of these programs can be
implemented, but we feel that we
can reach many of the other
members of our Jewish Com-
munities who may not need the
services offered on a 24 hour per
day basis, but could benefit from
the availability of assistance and
support," Miller said.
Safe Haven
For Refugees
American Jewish Committee has
urged the House Immigration
Subcommittee to support the
DeConcini-Moakley Bill on
Salvadoran refugees seeking
"safe haven" in the United
States, asserting it would con-
sider the plight of Salvadorans
now in the country in "a fair and
humane manner."
"Too often," wrote Howard
Friedman, AJC president, "reac-
tions to this group are shaped by
varying views of United States
foreign policy in El Salvador. Like
anyone seeking refuge,
Salvadorans have the right to
have their cases decided according
to criteria established in United
States and international law:
would they, as individuals, (ace

Friedman's letter was sent to
Rep. Romano Mazzoli (D., Ky),
chairman of the subcommittee of
the Judiciary Committee, and all
other members. The DeConcini-
Moakley Bill, Friedman said,
would suspend deportations back
to El Salvador for a limited time
until the General Accounting Of-
fice could study whether people
returned there were in danger
and whether other safe places for
them existed in Central America.

current Menorah Manor program,

Louis Iacucci / Noted wine authority.
Some wines are praised by authorities on wine. Some are praised by authorities on
Kosher law (Kashruth). But it seems that Carmel wines have managed to please
demanding critics of both persuasions. P
Which is no surprise, considering CarmePs great viti-|
cultural heritage dates back to biblicaltimes. A heritage
that's resulted in some truly notable wines, such as
our Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc and our new
Cabernet Blanc. All with truly superb fragrance and
depth. As well as with a truly superb Kosher upbringing.
So whether you prefer vintage varietals or the tradi-
tional richness of sacramental wines, this holiday, why not
celebrate with Israel's finest wines?
After all, they've been getting rave
reviews for more than d,000 years.
