greater proportion of our overly abundant resources to the

TEL AVIV (JTA) Police raided a small printing

two confederates at the plant. Police said they were caught

Brig. Gen. (Res.) Arye Shalev, a
Senior Fellow at Tel Aviv Univer-
sity's Jaffee Center for Strategic
Studies, presented his views in a
35-page study on unilateral
autonomy for the West Bank,
published Thursday (Sept. 25).
HE SAID an international
peace conference on the Middle
East is unlikely to materialize now
and Israel therefore should work
to strengthen the authority of
Palestinians in the administered
territory and encourage Jorda-
nian influence there at the ex-
pense of the Palestine Liberation
Negotiations between Israel
and any Arab partner are unlikely
at this stage and Israel therefore
should work behind the scenes,
with Jordanian cooneration, to
strengthen the power of local
Arab officials so as to pave the
way for an eventual political solu-
tion, Shalev said.
He suggested among Israel's
other options a policy of prodding
West Bank Arabs to take greater
responsibility for their own in-
stitutions. That, combined with
greater authority for local
leaders, would lessen friction bet-
ween Israeli officials and Arab
residents, he said.

than Mount Everest.
stage would be set for a political
solution between Israel, Jordan
and the Palestinians.
In the long term, Shalev said,
the Israeli civil administration
should be eliminated. But he cau-
tioned that premature implemen-
tation of autonomy would benefit
the PLO because its supporters
would promptly take over the
posts vacated by the Israelis.

Happy New Year
What is TOP?
The Tampa Orlando Pinellas
Jewish Foundation, Inc. (aka
TOP) is the only organization in
the nation of its kind. It is a non-
profit philanthropic endowment
fund, serving the needs of three
Jewish Federations.
Most people are familiar with
the concept of an endowment
fund. Harvard University started
350 years ago with a major en-
dowment from its founder. Most
major colleges and hospitals have
endowment programs.
In the case of universities, so-
meone might give a gift of $1
million. The principal is invested,
and never spent. All income
generated in a year is then used
for a specific purpose. Using an in-
terst rate of 10 percent $100,000
would be generated. These funds
might be used to get an outstan-
ding scholar for a "chair" in com-
puter science for about $80,000,
and the balance would pay for a
secretary and research materials.
About 15 years ago, many large
Jewish federations started endow-
ment programs, to benefit the
various federation agencies and
programs. Working with federa-
tion leaders, they set up philan-
thropic funds to help perpetuate
and expand different Jewish ac-
tivities. Many donors were en-
couraged to leave large gifts to
the federation in their wills.
In 1980, the Jewish Federations
of Tampa, Orlando, and Pinellas
County decided that each of their
respective communities could not
afford to have its own endowment
program. However, the need to
build such an endowment was just
as great as in cities such as Miami,
Baltimore or New York They
therefore decided to pool their ef-
forts and resources to create the
TOP Jewish Foundation. The
following year, they hired the first
executive director, Joel
As of June 30, TOP has assets
totaling $5.4 million: Tampa has
27 philanthropic funds valued at
$1,230,000; Orlando has 36 funds
valued at $2,076,000; and Pinellas
has 23 funds valued at $1,637,000.
In addition, TOP is managing a
fund for the Golda Meir Center in
Pinellas valued at $462,000.
In July, Mark W. Glickman,
CFRE, was hired as executive
director. "Our major challenge is
that many people in each com-
munity perceive TOP as another
organization trying to raise funds
and get funded by the Federa-
tion," said Glickman. "Nothing
could be further from the truth.
Rather than competing with other
agencies, our sole purpose is to
generate funds for the future of
all federation organizations. We
are purely a service arm of each
Reva Kent, a Pinellas Federa-
tion board member, was recently
elected president of the TOP
Board of Trustees for 1986-87. At
the TOP Annual Meeting on
September 15 in Tampa, she
stated, "We need to do a better
job of communicating with the
members of our communities that
TOP may be used as a vehicle to
support the organizations in
which they are involved."

'Raise Up Many Students'
A Rosh Hashanah Message of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai B'rith
Rosh Hashanah, traditionally a
time of spiritual reflection and
rededication for the Jewish peo-
ple, is this year also a time of
mourning for our Turkish
brethren who will not welcome in
the New Year 5747 because they
were cut down by terrorists.
In their behalf, and all others,
Jews and non-Jews, who have
fallen to terrorists in recent years,
we appeal to governments
everywhere to take action against
these malevolent assaults through
whatever measures political,
economic or military necessary
to underscore that terrrorism will
not be tolerated.
In this season of rededication,
Menorah Manor's Call For Volunteers
Menorah Manor's Guild has
issued an appeal for increased par-
ticipation and membership in its
volunteer activities. Sonya Miller,
Membership Chairman, announc-
ed that during the past year over
17,000 hours were given to the
Home for Jewish Living through
its men, women and youth
Now that the Manor has reach-
ed full capacity, more help is
urgently needed to provide the ex-
tra attention and service that
have helped secure the
SUPERIOR rating by the Florida
Department Of Health and
Rehabilitative Services.
There are three categories of
membership in the Guild:
A Sustaining Membership
at $18 per year
B Sustaining/Volunteer
Membership at $18 per year
C Volunteer at 100 hours
minimum per year
Money raised through member-
ships and fund raising activities

screen TV for residents and will
shortly be purchasing a lift van.
Birthday gifts for residents,
"game" prize money, special
events, entertainment, etc. are
paid through the Guild's efforts.
Increased membership and addi-
tional volunteers are urgently
we strengthen our commitment to
achieving human rights for the
tens of thousands of Jews in the
Soviet Union who are still not per-
mitted to live as Jews or to
emigrate and to security for Jews
wherever they live in conditions of
fear and repression.
We rededicate ourselves, too, to
redoubling our efforts in behalf of
a settlement of the Mideast con-
flict granting Israel its right to
live in peace and security among
its neighbors and, in this country,
eliminating bigotry, deepening
understanding among all
Americans and solidifying the
foundations of democracy on
which this nation is built.
Hillel School of Tampa
The Religious School buildings
in our community became alive
again with sounds of learning. Our
children returned from vacation,
and now it is back to a new school
year of study and educational ac-
tivities. Our Jewish heritage, as
reflected by the study of the
Torah, is here in each one of the
classrooms. The yearly return to
the Religious Schools through all
the ages of our history is the
everlasting Eternal Light of
Jewish knowledge. Every pupil
who comes to our schools is a
blessing. We know that not
everyone comes so willingly, but
we understand the children's
tendency to oppose at times any
additional demands made on
them. Yet we also know that it is
these pupils, who are working so
diligently, upon whom Jewish sur-
vival depends.
Most of our children have the
qualities of character, energy and
eagerness to accept the challenge
of learning. We are all aware that
the small sacrifice of time that is
being made now is necessary to
answer the call for leadership in
the future.
And for every one of our
children the students of today
we can foresee more
knowledgeable and strong Jewish
adults of tomorrow.
As we are about to hear the
sounds of the Shofar during the
High Holidays, we will also hear
with it a call for Jewish learning
for the coming New Year of 5747.
May God bless our community
with health, happiness and peace
this coming New Year.

A Yom Kippur Message
Yom Kippur, in many respects,
constitutes a holiday and holy day
that is very unique. For it is hard
to find a parallel to it among the
other peoples of the world. The
mere sounds of Kol Nidre or the
solemn melodies by the cantor
chanting the Unsaaneh Tokef,
B'rosh Haahona Yikasaivim,
Henay Yom Hadin, etc. evokes
even in the most indifferent per-
son a stirring mysterious feeling
for self-searching and questioning
of our lives and of ultimate pur-
suits, aspirations.
It is also a holy day which makes
many demands on all of us. It of-
fers us none of the joys and
festivities of a Chanukah, Purim,
Passover, Shavuot and Succoth.
In our vernacular expression, it
does not pay off, but instead asks
from each of us sacrifices, restric-
tions and denials. Yet, one might
say that in our present disturbed
and confused world, full of com-
plexities within and without,
perhaps it would be good for the
whole world to have such a day as
this. Indeed, perhaps, what our
world in 1986 requires is some ge-
nuine world self searching, hones-
ty and repentance in quest for
peace and brotherhood.
Certainly to our fathers Yom
Kippur was a day of deep inner
probing. They called this
"cheahban hanefeah soul sear-
ching." How genuine this was, we
may undersdtand when we recall
that it is essential even before
seeking divine forgiveness, to ask
forgiveness of one another. For
our rabbis say that on Yom Kip-
pur, G-d only forgives for the sins
committed against G-d as found in
the Amiddah's "al chait prayers."
However, for the sins we have
committed against our fellow
man, only we can forgive one

Surely it could be a much better
safe world, if we would have less
fears of possible war and bombs,
missiles or destruction via germ
warfare; if nations today could
take something of this humble
message and ask forgiveness of
one another. This pertains not on-
ly to the world's nations, but to
husbands and wives, brothers and
sisters, relatives, friends or
business associates. This is the
Torah and Jewish road for atone-
ment, peace and brotherhood.
When we have learned to consider
one another, we shall enjoy har-
mony and peace.
We must agree that progress is
the key word most important in
our modern vocabulary and within
today's world. We speak daily of
progress in science, medicine,
general technology, in business
and in international relations.
Judaism teaches us that progress
is also necessary in our spiritual
life as well. Here, ss in other areas
of human life, if we do not go for-
ward, we go backward. If what we
did yesterday still looks big to us,
than we haven't done today, and
shall do much less tomorrow. To
grow is to outgrow has been said.
It was the Roman philosopher,
Epictetus, who once said succinct-
ly yet most eloquently, "One man
finds pleasure in improving his
land, another improving his
horses." The Jewish version must
be with humble expressions seek-
ing forgiveness for personal
wrongdoing, thereby to yourself,
personal self improvement.
On Yom Kippur we assert that
true progress is achieved only by
going forward to the timeless
truths which dwell in the heart of
man. So let us remember the im-
mortal words of the Psalmist:
"Mark the man of integrity and
behold the upright: for the end of
that man is peace." Thus, we shall
soon pray again and again on this
sacred day, "For all our sins, O
G-d of forgiveness, forgive us.
pardon us, and grant us atone-
ment." May all of us, as Children
of G-d, together with all nations in
the world be inscribed to a happy,
healthful new year with peace
amidst all mankind. Amen KAIN
Reconstructionist Chavurah
Celebrates Anniversary
The Reconstructionist Com-
munity Chavurah, Tampa's only
affiliated Reconstructionist
group, is about to celebrate its
first anniversary. Founded by
Rabbi Steven J. Kaplan, director
of the Hillel Jewish Student
Center of Tampa, the Chavurah
includes members who are af-
filiated with other synagogues, as
well as those who claim they
would not have had any formal af-
filiation if not for the group.
"Although we have services and
social functions, the backbone of
our group is our study/discussion
sessions. We focus on topics in
philosophy and theology, and try
to tear them apart," according to
Rabbi Kaplan.
A subgroup on customs and
ceremonies is in the making, to
not only strengthen what educa-
tion now exists, but to familiarize
the non-Jewish spouses of some
with Judaism's rich traditions.
Since the Chavurah is primarily
geared to the needs of the adult
community, a group of parents
began the "Chavurettes," con-
sisting of 2-4 year-olds who,
together with their parents, share
a bi-weekly Shabbat program.
Kabbi Kaplan feels that these
parents are now at a point where
they rival any similar program in
the country.
He states, "It is mind boggling
to witness the combination of
Judaism, Hebrew, ethics, and
sheer fun that these parents im-
part to the children. The parents'
level of professionalism is
Formed out of faculty and com-
munity response a year ago, those

group, responding to the tremen-
dous success of the Tampa group,
was formed and meets in
Reconstructionism defines
Judaism as an evolving religious
civilization. Thus it is the respon-
sibility and obligation of every
Jew to reconstruct those basic
tenets and practices of Jewish
tradition, making them mean-
ingful, vital, and vibrant for the
Jew today. Those wishing to share

Rosh Hashanah Message
World Zionist Organization
American Section
This New Year, true to our
tradition of faith, we express our
gratitude for the good of the past
year and reassert our resolve to
complete the unfulfilled tasks
Our primary concerns remain
the peace, security and economic
viability and well-being of the peo-
ple of Israel, the opening of the
closed doors for our Soviet
brethren, the repatriation of the
remaining Jews of Ethiopia, the
defense everywhere of Jewish
rights and the refutation of anti-
Semitic slander and libel.
We are heartened by the impen-
ding resolution of the inter-
minable negotiations over Taba,
the extraordinary event of the

56 'Otzma' Participants Begin
Year of Service In Israel
NEW YORK, N.Y. Thirty
men and 26 women have arrived
in Israel as the first participants
in an innovative and exciting new
program designed to strengthen
the bonds between North
American Jewish communities
and Israel.
Sponsored by the Council of
Jewish Federations and 11 pilot
communities, participants, all
18-24 years old, have committed
themselves not only to a year of
service in Israel but also to work-
ing on behalf of their local Jewish
communities on their return.
"The objective of the program,"
said Shoahana S. Cardin, Presi-
dent of CJF, "is the identification
of gifted young people with
leadership potential at an early
point in their career development,
and then bonding them to Israel
and to the Jewish community in a
meaningful way that will
stimulate them to become Jewish
communal professionals or active
volunteer leaders."
The Federations that recruited,
screened and provided fellowships
to program participants include:
Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Los
Angeles, MetroWest (NJ), Mon-
treal, New York City, St. Louis,
San Francisco, Toronto and
Washington, D.C.
Carmi Schwartz, Executive
Vice President of CJF, which
coordinates the Otzma program,
added that it is conceived of as of-
fering its participants four goals:
(1) service in Israel; (2) am-
bassadorship roles as Americans
in Israel; (3) functioning as a per-
manent bridge with Israel, and (4)
service to North American Jewry
upon their return.
The program began on Aug. 20
with a five-day pre-departure
seminar designed to deepen par-
ticipants' understanding of
various aspects of the North
American Jewish community
which they would be representing

in Israel.
On their arrival in Israel, Otzma
participants proceeded to a Kib-
butz Ulpan in order to acquire the
basic fundamentals of Hebrew
language and acclimate
themselves to Israeli culture.
The core of the program will
consist of communal service to the
Project Renewal neighborhoods
supported by the Federations
sponsoring Otzma participants.
Added components will include
a month with Youth Aliyah, a
month and a half on a moshav and
a one-month educational program.
The sponsoring bodies in Israel
are the Jewish Agency and the
Israeli Forum a newly
developed volunteer organization
of young, successful Israeli
business entrepreneurs,
academics, kibbutzniks and others
concerned about strengthening
ties between Israel and the
Diaspora. The Forum has taken
on responsibility for planning and
monitoring the program, and its
members are making themselves
available as "adoptive parents,"
providing each Otzma participant
with both a support system while
in Israel and a permanent per-
sonal tie to Israel afterwards.
The operational body for im-
plementation in Israel is the
Youth and Hechalutz Department
of the World Zionist Organization,
and the American Zionist Youth
Foundation is the cooperating
counterpart in America.

"Forbidden on Shabbat."
Few people had so much love of
Israel as the Berditchever, Rabbi
Levi Yitzchak (1740-1810). This
love was inherent within the great
Tzadik (saint) at all times but as
the "days of awe" arrive it would
take on a greater urgency.
One time, when Rosh Hashonah
was on a Shabbat he walked over
to the synagogue pulpit and
prayed: "Sovereign of the
universe, this year you must, ac-
cording to your Torah, write a
good year for your people Israel.
Today is not only the New Year,
but also the holy Shabbat when it
is forbidden to write an evil
decree. On the other hand if you
write a good decree, a decree of
life, this is permissible, for
"pikeach nefesch," the saving of a
life takes precedence over the
"Who Will Blow the Shofar"
Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berdit-
chev was seeking a "baal
tokaiya," a person to blow the
shofar in his synagogue on Rosh
Hashonah. When the applicants
for the position entered, the Rabbi
asked them, "What do you think
about when you are blowing the
Each one showed his
knowledge. "I think of the holy
name of G-d," said one applicant.
Another said that he concentrates
on the angels and sounds of the
None of these satisfied the Rab-
bi, until one day a very poor man
applied and answered, "Rabbi, I
am poor and have four daughters
that are now of marriageable age.
I do not have the funds to betroth
them. When I blow the shofar, I
pray "Lord of the universe, I am
doing your commandment, so
fulfill your part and enable me to
marry off my daughters. Rabbi
hired him saying, "You have the
proper and honest thoughts for a
"baal tokaiya."
"The Expensive Fish"
There was once a poor tailor
who went to the market to pur-
chase a fish for his meal before the
Yom Kippur fast. He came too
late, most of the large fish had
been sold except one. At that mo-
ment the servant of the governor
entered and began to bid for the
fish. The bidding continued until
the price reached 12 dinarim. The
servant turned away in disgust
saying that his master would beat
him if he spent so much money for
a mere fish. The tailor bought the
That evening the governor ask-
ed, "Why didn't you buy fish to-
day"? The servant told him about
the tailor who out bid him. The
governor ordered the poor tailor
to be brought to him. The gover-
nor asked him, "How is it possible
for a poor man to pay so much for
a fish?"
The tailor replied, "We have
one day in the year called Yom
Kippur, the day of atonement, on
which all our sins are forgiven,
should we not honor it with all our
"Very well spoken, I respect
you for your convictions," said the
The Midrash ends, "How did
G-d reward the poor tailor?"
When he opend the fish he found a
rare gem. He sold the gem and
with its proceeds he lived a richer
life. (Midrash Tanchuma)
"Never Frighten the People"
Once on Yom Kippur, the Holy
Priest remained very long in the
Holy of Holies in the Temple. He
was praying for the welfare of
When he finally emerged, they
asked him, "Why did you tarry in
the Holy of Holies?" He
answered, "You should be glad
that I tarried, for I prayed for all
Israel that G-d grant them a good
year. Don't you appreciate my
prayers in your behalf?"
They replied, "We do ap-
preciate your prayers, but your
lateness caused us to worry that
perhaps you became sick. Our
sages have ruled that one should
never frighten the people, neither
harsh words nor criticism should
be uttered by officials, but words
of consolation and peace. (Gemara

The first thing we noticed was
the lingering odor of cordite.
Others said they couldn't smell it.
And maybe they were right. After
all, it had been four days since two

and tossing grenades into the
gathering of Shabbat worship-

be a long time before the smell of
death was removed from this
house of peace.
They had tried to clean the
synagogue for the funeral ser-
vices. In fact, the entire building
had been renovated just before
the attack. But the clean-up was
no match for the carnage that
desecrated Neve Shalom.
The stucco walls were caked
with blood, riddled with bullet
holes and pockmarked by
shrapnel. The floors were blacken-
ed with smoke, reminders of the
charred bodies set fire by the ter-
rorists. Two stained-glass win-
dows above the alter were com-
pletely shattered. The imagery of
"Kristalnacht" was inescapable.
' The synagogue was packed with
more than a thousand mourners,
including the Chief Rabbis of
Israel, France, Holland and
Sweden, other clergy
(conspicuously absent were any
representatives of the Moslem
majority), members of the
diplomatic corps and of Jewish
organizations. The gallery was

Slowly, the families of 19 vic-
tims (two were Israeli and were
buried in Israel) were ushered into
the temple. Seeing the bloodied
sanctuary for the first time, many
of the bereaved women and
children could no longer control
their grief. Blood-curdling wails
and long, agonizing moans inter-
rupted the chazan as he chanted
Psalms. As the cameras zoomed in
on the grief stricken survivors, we
asked ourselves what meaning,
what lessons would others glean
from this morbid scene?
The slaughter in Istanbul was
the latest and worst of savage at-
tacks against innocents whose on-
ly crime was being Jewish: Rue de
Copernic, a Jewish day school in
Antwerp, Goldenberg's
Delicatessen in Paris, and the
machine gun attack at Rome's
main synagogue. And now, the
massacre of 21 Jews, most of
them elderly, in Neve Shalom.
When will the killing stop?
The horror of the Istanbul at-
tack was not only in the numbers
of dead and injured, but in kind.
This was no hit-and-run; no
faceless contact between a bomb-
thrower and his victims. The
killers bolted the door to the
synagogue, gunned down their
victims at point-blank range, and
burned the bodies in a savage
display of anti-Semitic frenzy.
Neve Shalom revealed new depths
of Arab terrorism against
defenseless victims.
The terrorists made no pretense
of this being an anti-Israeli act.
The often argued distinctions bet-
ween anti-Zionism and anti-
Semitism were laid waste in the
pools of blood in Neve Shalom. As
were the "root cause" theories,
which see the Palestinian question
as the origin of every terrorist
atrocity. This rationale not only
makes victims out of killers, but
furnished a pretext for future

caskets lay waiting in a convoy of
open-sided hearses for the three-
mile journey to the cemetery. In
the sweltering September after-
noon, greeting many familiar
faces, our thoughts returned to
another visit to Neve Shalom.
Then, the occasion had been a
joyous one, just prior to a bar
mitzvah celebration.

maintaining a low profile, felt
secure. Or at least as secure as a
Jewish minority (about 22,000
people) could feel in a
predominantly Moslem society.
There was some reason for this
quietude, however tentative. Jews
have lived in Turkey in relative
tranquility since the 15th Cen-
tury. (The attack on Neve Shalom
was the first serious act of anti-
Semitism in memory. In fact the
community was beginning
preparations to celebrate in 1992,
with government blessing, 500
years of Jewish life in Turkey.)
Turkish Jews, for the most part,
have prospered in business and
are accepted in professions such
as architecture and medicine.
Despite its Moslem majority and
pro-Arab tilt, Turkey maintains
diplomatic ties with Israel. There
is a fair amount of trade and com-
merce between the two nations,
and there are reports of exchange
of military intelligence and
strategic cooperation. El Al flies
three times a week to Istanbul.
For all their prosperity, there is
an understandable sense of ner-
vousness in the Jewish communi-
ty, exacerbated by the attack at
Neve Shaom. Young people,
frustrated about the restrictions
against Zionist (or any other
foreign associations) and seeking
a fuller Jewish life, have left
Turkey in recent years. Some
make aliyah and the rest leave for
the United States and Europe.
Our visit last year to Istanbul
was made memorable by the un-
matched expressions of warmth
feel welcome. Whatever, it
the long-lasting friendships
sense of solidarity that brought us
back to Istanbul in the Jewish
community's darkest hour.
The Istanbul Jewish communi-
ty, traumatized by the massacre
at Neve Shalom, quickly pulled
itself together. Bracing
themselves for the influx of
visiting dignitaries, well-wishers
and media, and liaising with the
security forces, the local Jewish
leaders managed to organize the
funeral services while looking
after the bereaved. The Neve
Shalom congregation is the
poorest in Istanbul. Assurances
were given that the 19 families
who lost their breadwinners
would be taken care of.
As for us, Jewish visitors from
abroad, the occasion held
significance beyond paying last
respects. It was a time of solidari-
ty. And it was greatly ap-
preciated. Old friends embraced
us with tears in their eyes, tears
that projected their pain, but also
revealed the gratitude that they
are not alone. The horrors of Neve
Shalom was inflicted on the
Jewish people as a whole, not just
those of Istanbul.
The funeral procession was
more moving than we expected.
Hundreds of soldiers, their rifles
held ready, lined the route to the
cemetery. A police band played
Beethoven's death march. Coffins
were carried to a corner of the
cemetery where 19 graves had
been dug in a U-shape which, we
were told, would be the site of a
special monument. A gauzy veil of
petrol fumes shimmered over
Istanbul and the Bosphorus

whether the nations of the world

tries around the world would be
alone again, left with their fears

Waldheim Called
For Enemies To 'Kill the Jews'
Friday, October 3,1986/The Jewiih Ftoridian of Tampa Page 9
Virulentlv anti-Semitic
tirades, culminating in a call
to "kill the Jews," appear in
a newly-discovered package
of Nazi propaganda leaflets,
a package initialed by Kurt
Waldheim when he served
as a senior German in-
telligence officer during
World Warl II, the World
Jewish Congress reports.
The leaflets, located by
WJCongress researchers at the
U.S. National Archives, bear such
titles as "The Jews prepared This
War" and "Onward to Berlin,
Jews Shriek." They have been
turned over to the U.S. Justice
DOCUMENTS show the
leaflets were prepared for
distribution by a German army
propaganda company and sent to
Waldheim at the High Command
Headquarters of his intelligence
section. At headquarters,
Waldheim received the leaflets
along with a title index and a
cover report dated November 28,
1944, both of which he initialed in
the "03" box of the stamp of his
intelligence section the
Waldheim acknowledged his
"03" intelligence status in his
memorandum to the United
States Justice Department of
April 6, 1986. The 03 "was the
deputy of the chief intelligence of-
ficer responsible for all opera-
tional intelligence and the control
of the intelligence staff," accor-
ding to the declassified study,
"German Military Intelligence,"
by the Military Intelligence Divi-
sion of the U.S. War Department,
Sixty-five titles were listed on
the master index of the propagan-
da leaflets that Waldheim initialed
and dated. The cover report which
he also initialed states that 80,000
copies of the leaflets had been
printed and that "repeat printings
are planned."
ACCORDING TO the cover
report, thousands of copies of the
leaflets were to be dropped behind
enemy lines to Russian soldiers, in
an attempt to get them to defect
to the German side. The leaflets
include such outpourings of anti-
Semitic venom as the following:
"Cursed be the Jews who sit
over the necks of our relatives in
the rear and such their blood";
"Only the German people did
right when it freed itself from the
accursed Jews"; "All of us must
seriously consider going over to
the German people, to fight with it
against Jewish Bolshevism"; and
"The Jews prepared this war.
Jews got it onto our backs. Jews
do not want it to end."
One of the leaflets concludes:
"Who, wherever you move into
the Balkans, showed the greatest
enthusiasm? The Jews. Enough of
the Jewish war, kill the Jews,
come over."
Another captured Nazi war
document a secret organiza-
tional chart of the German High
Command in the Balkans shows
that "Waldheim's intelligence sec-
tion ("IC/AO") had major pro-
paganda responsibilities. The

has proposed that terrorist acts]
against airports and aircraft bel
treated as an international crimel
and that the perpetrators,!
wherever they are. be punished!
according to international law.
The proposal was contained in I
an eight-page document
presented by the Israeli delega-
tion at the opening of the 26th
Assembly of the International
Civil Aviation Organization
(ICAO) here. "The most impor-
tant precondition for the suc-
cessful combat against terrorism
is the determination of states to
flight against terrorism and those
who support it," the document |
It urged cooperation among j
states in the area of intelligence
and the creation of "well-trained
anti-terrorist units which should
be capable to act whenever and
wherever they are needed. The
terrorists must never be allowed
to feel safe anywhere in the
world," the Israeli document said.

CJC President Dorothy Reit-

She urged the Prime Minister to

holy days Challenge Us to face Reality of Our Lives
It is often said that, while all
other festivals have a strong na-
tional and historical significance,
the High Holy Days are personal,
since they challenge the individual
to face up to the realities of his
own life. There is much truth in
that assertion. Nevertheless, let
us look at a further national im-
plication in the choice of the Torah
reading for Rosh Hashanah. First,
another legend.
THE RABBIS tell the following
story. When Abraham started out
on his journey to sacrifice his son
in accordance with God's com-
mand, Satan disguised himself as
an old man and met Abraham on
the road.
"Where are you going?" he ask-
ed the Patriarch
"I am going to pray," answered
"Then why on earth are you car-
rying the wood and the knife?"
"Well," answered Abraham,
"we might want to camp out for a
day or two, and then we will need
to cook and to bake."
"Old man," Satan said, "I was
present when God told you to
slaughter your son, and I think
you've gone out of your mind.
Here you are at the age of one
hundred. At last you have the son
you have been waiting and pray-
ing for, and now you are going to
kill him."
"Yes I am," said Abraham
quietly. "For that is what God
commanded me to do."
"And what if tomorrow God will
ask you to kill yourself, because
you killed your son?" persisted
Satan. "What will you do then?"
"I would still carry out His com-
mand," said Abraham.
SEEING THAT he was getting
nowhere with the father. Satan
then tried with Isaac. He changed
himself into a youngster and he
stood before Isaac.
"Where are you going?" he
"To study Torah," Isaac
"Before your death or after it?"
Satan taunted.
"Can anyone study Torah after
his death?" the boy asked.
"Alas. You poor kid. I can't bear
to think of your mother. How
many fasts she kept and how
many prayers she offered before
you were born. And now this fool
of an old man, your father, is go-
ing to slaughter you."
"Just the same," answered
Isaac, 'I won't rebel against the
will of God or against the decision
of my father."
When Satan saw that his efforts
had failed with both of them, he
tried a new tactic and changed
himself into a big river in order to
prevent them from proceeding on
their journey.
ABRAHAM immediately walk-
ed into the water and, when it
reached his knees, he instructed
Isaac and his servants to follow
him. Abraham went on ahead; but
the water got deeper and deeper,
and when it reached his neck,
Abraham looked up to heaven and
"Oh, God, You revealed
Yourself to me and said, 'I am the
One God, and you are the uniquely
faithful, and through you shall My
name be acknowledged
throughout the world.'
"When you commanded me to
sacrifice Isaac, I did not argue and
I am now on my way to carry out
Your command. But the waters of
this river are ready to take my
life. If I or my son Isaac is to
drown, then who will be left to
carry out Your commands? By
whom will You be acknowledged
as the only One God?"
Immediately after Abraham's
prayer, God rebuked the river,
which then disappeared, leaving
Abraham and his company to con-
tinue their journey on dry ground.
When they finally arrived at the
place of the sacrifice, Abraham
got everything ready. They built
the altar, and Abraham bound
Isaac on to it. Abraham's tears
flowed as he took the knife to
slaughter his son.
BUT EVEN at the last minute,
Satan was determined to do
everything he could to prevent
Abraham from proving his faith in
God. He pushed Abraham's hand
and made the Patriarch drop the
knife. Abraham stooped, picked
up the knife and made to perform
the act of sacrifice.
But it was not God's plan that
Isaac should be sacrificed. It was
now evident and it would
always be clear to all men and for
all time that Abraham had pass-
ed the test of faith in God.
So God immediately dispatched
the angel Michael, who prevented
Abraham from killing his son.
After that, Abraham found a ram
caught by its horns in a thicket
and he offered it as a sacrifice in-
stead of Isaac.
The shofar blown on Rosh
Hashanah is usually the horn of a
ram, making the symbolic connec-
tion between the festival and the
binding of Isaac, and we ask God
to "remember" the Akeda for our
good. We call this zechut avot
the merit of our forbears and it
is a concept which has an
honorable place in Jewish
BUT IT IS relevant that the
idea of zechut avot is not like a
stockpile of "merit" earned
through the pious deeds of our
ancestors which we can draw on
whenever necessary, like one
draws out the interest while the
capital sum remains in the bank
A rabbinic view warns that
xechut avot is not forever. Rather,
the notion of zechut avot has to
Esther, Julius, Harris,
Penny, Julius Michael, Glenn
and Lee Tobin
serve as a historical challenge to
the descendants of the Patriarchs.
It is not God so much who
should "remember" the virtues of
the Patriarchs, but rather we
ourselves who should remember
them. For, by remembering the
past and all its sacrifices, subse-
quent generations are more likely
to be influenced by its teaching.
By and large, the descendants
have been faithful to the tradi-
tions of the past. The important
thing is that they have lived with
loyalty. But all too frequently they
were prepared even to die for
their loyalty.
The rabbis offered the observa-
tion that the experiences of the
Patriarchs are repeated in the
record of their descendants. View-
ed with this point in mind, the
Akeda is not only a story in the
lives of Abraham and Isaac; it has
been a constant theme in the
record of the Jews throughout
their history. "Take now thy son,
thine only son ..." has been an
oft-repeated text. Perhaps no
other people has made similar
sacrifices for Torah, for cons-
cience, for human honor.
The Akeda story is also part of
the modern record. In a book call-
ed "Bizchutam," written in 1971,
Yitzchak Nimtsovitz describes the
scene in an Israeli synagogue in
Bat Yam where a Mr. and Mrs.
Kramer donated a Torah scroll in
memory of their son.
WHAT WAS SO special about
the Torah scroll donated by that
family? The author tells us. Dur-
ing the Nazi occupation of Poland,
Kramer built a bunker near their
home somewhere in the outskirts
of Vilna. At that time, Jews were
being shot on sight. Altogether 46
Jews hid in that bunker, including
Mr. and Mrs. Kramer and their
baby son, David.
As the Nazis continued their
search, they came close to the
bunker when the baby began to
cry. Everyone was afraid that the
infant would give them away, and
all eyes turned to Kramer, the
father of the child. He hesitated
for a long, anguished moment; the
he suffocated his own son.
All 46 managed to escape, some
to fight with the partisans; some
of them ultimately reaching
Israel, where they and their
children now live. That was why
the scroll was donated. All the
survivors were present; and the
story was written down.
We can ask, "How could he do
it? Was he mad, that father who
killed his own son?" And, even
while we acknowledge the reason,
can we imagine the enormity of
that sacrifice?
NOW WE CAN perhaps see the
connection between the Akeda
and Yom Hazikaron. Throughout
the generations, satanic opposi-
tion to Jews might have broken
Jewish faith. In the Midraah of the
rabbis, the sages tell their story
with precisely that point in mind.
In modem times, Satan disguis-
ed himself as a Nazi: there is no
difference. But in spite of
everything Satan could do, Jewish
faith remained firm. It is really a
touch of genius which moved
those responsible for arranging
the order of the service for Rosh
Hashanah to bring the story of the
Akeda into our synagogues on
Yom Hazikaron. For Yom
Hazikaron is not only a day when
we ask God to remember. It is also
a day when the Jew remembers.
And remembrance of the past
should strengthen loyalty to the
present and the future.

Redman Tells
Why U.S.
State Department has stressed
that the problems of security in
south Lebanon cannot be solved
by extending the authority of the
United Nations Interim Force in
Lebanon (UNIFIL) to the Israeli
border or by "any resolution pass-
ed" by the United Nations Securi-
ty Council.
State Department deputy
spokesman Charles Redman made
this point in explaining why the
United States abstained Tuesday
(Sept. 23) when the Security
Council adopted a resolution call-
ing on Israel to withdraw its trops
from south Lebanon and allow
UNIFIL to move to the border.
"We believe that stability for
south Lebanon and security for
Israel's northern border can only
come through measures agreed on
by all the parties to the conflict,"
Redman said. "The call for the im-
mediate deployment of UNIFIL
to the border, in the absence of
such measures, is not realistic and
will solve none of the underlying
problems of instability and lack of
central authority which plagues
south Lebanon."
Redman added that UNIFIL
has "the potential to contribute
significantly" to the two major
goals supported by the U.S.
"the return of the effective
authority of the Lebanese govern-
ment to southern Lebanon and the
withdrawal of all foreign forces
from Lebanon." But he stressed
that these goals cannot be achiev-
ed by UNIFIL without an agree-
ment first by the parties involved.

Library of Fritz Bamberger Acquired By Hebrew U.
jr. Alfred Gottschalk, Presi-
Int, announced that Hebrew
nio'n College-Jewish Institute of
,ligion has purchased the per-
Irial library of the late Dr. Fritz
nberger, a noted scholar,
[thor, and educator, who was
ely associated with the College
more than 40 years.
|The Bamberger library contains
|oOO volumes pertaining to
lilosophy and intellectual
lought. Dr. Bamberger had
epared an annotated catalogue
a major segment of his library
wrote a 16-page essay on the
Imposition of the collection.
|The library, which includes
ny first and early editions of
nuscripts, spans the period
jm the Renaissance to the end
the 19th century, and concen-
jtes on significant thinkers and
i works which have played a role
the formation of important
es in the history of ideas.
Librarians, scholars and book col-
tectors who have visited the
Bamberger library agree that it is
unique in its composition and that
it would be nearly impossible to
bring together another of its kind.
The largest part of the library
approximately 1,075 titles in
1,400 volumes, consists of an ex-
traordinary collection of books by
and about the philosopher,
Spinoza. Scholars who have
studied the collection have con-
cluded that no other library,
public or private, comprises the
first editions of Spinoza's works in
so many variants, some of them
unknown until Dr. Bamberger
identified them. The collection is
also particularly strong in works
about Spinoza for the period
marking his entry into Dutch
philosophical and theological

be housed at the Jerusalem School
of Hebrew Union College as part
of a center for Spinoza study.
"Together with the outstanding
Spinoza collection at the Klau
Library on our Cincinnati cam-
pus," Dr. Gottschalk added, "I
believe that the acquisition of the
Bamberger library now places the
world's finest collection by and
about Spinoza in the possession of
Hebrew Union College."
Dr. Fritz Bamberger, who
devoted half a century to assembl-
ing his library, was assistant to
the President of Hebrew Union
College from 1962-1979. He was
born in Frankfurt-am-Main, Ger-
many, and educated at the
Hochschule fuer die Wisseruchafi
des Judentums and the University
of Berlin, where he received his
doctorate. He was a professor at
the Hochsehule and at the
Academy for Jewish Research,
and served as president of the
Jewish Teachers College in
The second Edition of 'Tractatus Theologico-
Politicus,' one of the many Spinoza volumes in
the Bamberger library collection. This
volume, printed in Hamburg in 1672, is con-
sidered a particularly important work in
philosophy, bridging the Medieval and the
In 1934, after the rise of Adolph
Hitler, Dr. Bamberger assumed
the directorship of the Board of
Education for Jews, supervising,
at great personal risk, a system of
140 schools from kindergarten to
high school. He left Germany for
the United States in 1939.
In 1942, Dr. Bamberger began a
20-year career in publishing at Es-
quire, Inc., serving in many
capacities, including editor-in-
chief of Coronet magazine and ex-
ecutive director of Esquire. He
later joined the faculty and ad-
ministration of HUC where he re-
mained until his retirement.
The Bamberger collection is the
second great library to be ac-
quired by Hebrew Union College
in recent months. Earlier this
year, Dr. Gottschalk announced
the acquisition of the personal
library of the late Dr. Yigael
Yadin, the distinguished Israeli
statesman and archaeologist. The
Yadin collection encompasses
seven thousand books, several
thousand volumes and issues of
scholarly journals, and more than
ten thousand offprints. It will also
be housed at Hebrew Union Col-
lege's Jerusalem School.
Hebrew Union College-Jewish
Institute of Religion is the na-
tion's oldest institution of higher
Jewish studies. It trains rabbis,
cantors, educators, communal
workers and doctoral and post-
doctoral scholars at its four cam-
puses in Cincinnati, New York,
Los Angeles and Jerusalem.

Soviet Bureaucracy
Stymies Woman from Helping Brother
A Soviet Jewish woman,
whose brother is gravely ill
in Tel Aviv, has been caught
up in a bureaucratic cat-and-
mouse game in which she
faces a tragic dilemma of
having to choose between
her brother and her
Inessa Flerova, 37, of Moscow,
is the only person who might be
capable of donating bone marrow
to her brother, Michael Shirman,
31. who is stricken with myeloid
leukemia, a bone marrow
malginancy that is fatal in young
adults. His sole chance for sur-
vival of the disease rests in the
successful transplant of bone mar-
row from a close relative.
FLEROVA, after staging a
hunger strike in August that at-
tracted international publicity and
prompted the intervention of
American Congressmen, was
granted a visa to immigrate to
Israel with her two daughters.
But, in a nightmare of Kafkaesque
proportions, Soviet authorities
refused to allow her husband, Vic-
tor Flerov, to accompany his
Flerov's visa is being held back
on grounds that his father has
allegedly withheld the necessary
written statement absolving his
38-year-old son of financial obliga-
tions. Flerov has not seen his
father since he was very young,
according to family accounts.
Word came from Tel Aviv that
Flerov has begun a hunger strike
to protest the Soviet authorities'
refusal to allow him to join his
family in going to Israel.
Initially, Flerova did not re-
quest permission to emigrate, on-
ly a temporary visa that would
allow her to go to Israel for
testing for compatibility and,
possible bone marrow transplant.
permission was beset by a series
of obstacles, according to Shirman
himself, in letters he has written
to an American doctor, Kenneth
Prager, and to Prager's New
Jersey Congressman, Robert Tor-
ricelli, both of whom have in-
tervened through written peti-
tions to Soviet officials, to
American government officials in
the highest echelons, and to the
doctors who attended to the vic-
tims of the Chernobyl nuclear
Shirman says his sister's re-
quest to OVIR, the Soviet emigra-
tion office, for a temporary visa to
go to Israel unaccompanied was
rejected on two separate occa-
sions; that her personal request to
Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
went unanswered; that the
authorities pressed her for her en-
tire family to apply for visas; and
that the family was pressed to ap-
ply to emigrate, ostensibly a
longer process and a complicated
one, taking up precious time that
was so necessary for Shirman's
Shirman says that he Flerovs'
application for a visa has rendered
the family "enemies of the peo-
ple" and has affected their lives
terribly. Flerova's request for
"character reference" from work
(she is an economist) was rejected
and has caused her to be "brutally
persecuted" at her job by "senior
functionaries ... waging a
shameful campaign of humiliation
and slander against her," Shir-
man said.

rizons a 15 week course in

siness, developed in coopera-
n with the Fashion Institute of
hnology's Division of Continu-

The small business course is be-

"No matter what strides women
continue to make," says Beverly
Minkoff, United States Opera-
tions Chairman for Women's
American ORT," the gap between
women's and men's earning
power remains a reality. Women
desperately need a chance to
develop their potential and ac-
quire skills in areas that can make
them economically independent."
Mrs. Minkoff introduced the
pilot project at the organization's
annual national board meeting
last March, where it was en-
thusiastically approved. "Accor-
ding to the U.S. Small Business
Administration," says Mrs.
Minkoff, "women-owned
businesses are growing at an all-

women four times the number

small businesses were owned by
women. If that's not a sign," says
Mrs. Minkoff, smiling, "I don't
know what is."
The course has been specially
developed to evaluate individual
business aptitude and skills, as
well as to provide women with the
practical information needed to
get started in a business. One of
the course requisites is the
preparation of a business plan,
one which could actually be sub-
mitted to a bank for financing. If
the pilot project is successful,

911: The Number for Emergency
If you're paying an additional
50 cents a month to the telephone
company for each of your phone
lines, by 1988 you'll get more than
your money's worth.
The 50 cents surcharge which
began June 1, will be used to pay
the $1.5 million for administrative
needs and installation costs re-
quired to implement equipment
that will operate a 911 emergency
telephone system in Hillsborough
County,. The automated system is
expected to begin in 1988.
Last April, the County Commis-
sion approved an ordinance to col-
lect this surcharge from every
potential user of the service
telephone subscribers rather
than assessing it against only ad
valorem tax payers.

Barry J. Smith, 911 Program
Director, says the coming service
is "part of a nationally utilized
system where computer equip-
ment automatically identifies the
caller's telephone number and ad-
dress, aiding emergency person-
nel in response time."
"When a person dials 9-1-1, the
caller's telephone number and ad-
dress are displayed, and the com-
puter allows immediate dispat-
ches of the proper fire, police, am-
bulance or other emergency
response agency. Automatically,
the caller will be zoned. There'll
be no chance for mistakes," Smith
A $4 million switching system
being installed by General
Telephone of Florida will sort in-
coming calls, directing them to
the emergency service or "public
safety answering point" closest to
the caller.
The "public safety answering
points" include: Tampa Police and
Fire/Rescue, the county's
Emergency Medical Service, each
of Hillsborough County's Sheriff
Fire and Emergency Manage-
ment departments, Florida
Highway Patrol, MacDill Air
Force Base, Tampa International
Airport, Tampa General Poison
Control, and USF Security.
"Hillsborough County is the
fourth largest county in the state
in the number of households and
businesses served by Enhanced
911. We estimate 440,000
telephone subscribers will have
access to this service," Smith
Smith's job is to develop, coor-
dinate and maintain the system.
Currently, he is working to
alleviate potential problems.
"Street naming and the number
problem is one of our biggest
tasks. We'll have to coordinate
with our municipalities and
eliminate duplication of street
names and numbers and resolve
the rural route and post office box
problems," he said.
Identically named streets within
the county will have to be renam-
ed to enhance efficiency. Some
customers will have to have their
street numbers assigned because
rural routes or box numbers do
not provide a proper location to be
fed into the computer.
"Hillsborough County is one of
the last counties of this size to im-
plement the program. Previously,
the equipment was not available
to allow the sophistication that the
county needed," Smith said.
Once the 911 system is working,
it will definitely save time and

" "When the film The Garden
of the Finzi-Contini appeared in
1972, my mother urged me to br-
ing it to America so the people
there could understand what the
Jewish experience in Italy was
like. So I was responsible for get-
ting my husband's roommate at
Harvard to distribute the film in
the U.S., and I took it on a promo-
tional tour with two fund-raising
premieres in every major
American city one for the
Italians and one for the Jews. The
proceeds were earmarked for the
restoration of the Venetian
synagogue." The charity was in-
stitutionalized as Save Venice
Inc.; now interdenominational, its
current projects include four
Venetian churches.
The first project was the Schola
Levantina (Oriental Synagogue),
which is the next stop on the Ghet-
to tour. Founded by Jews from
Greece, Turkey and the Eastern
Mediterranean about 1540, this
synagogue competed with the
neighboring, Sephardic Schola
Spagnola in commissioning the
best-known architects and artists.
As Jews were barred from the
arts, this work was executed by
the same Christian masters that
beautified Venice's chruches and
palazzi. Thus the holy ark was
designed by the school of
Baldasaari Longhena, creator of
the imposing white, octagonal La
Salute church at the mouth of the
Grand Canal. The magnificent
beige-and-brown baroque wood
carvings of the synagogue differ,
though, from typical church decor
in the lack of any human figures.
Restoration was completed in
1979, but work is still needed:
although, as the only synagogue
with central heating, the Levan-
tina is now used in winter, last
year there was some water
seepage near the ark that damag-
ed some of the priceless carvings.
In the Schola Levantina ladies
still sit in the upstairs balcony,
though the mehitza is never closed
any more. When the Friday night
and Saturday morning services
(there's no quorum avilable for
regular weekday prayers) are
moved across the street to the
unheated Schola Grande Spagnola
for the summer, the women are
spared the effort: the balcony was
damaged by an earthquake nine
years ago; by the time restoration
was complete, the ladies were ac-
customed to sitting in the main
hall and wouldn't climb the tall
flight of stairs. So they still use
one side of the main sanctuary,
behind a token mehitza.
The elliptical balcony extending
all around both synagogues was
an innovation of Longhena, who
was commissioned by the Sephar-
dim too after their original Schola
burned down toward the end of
the 16th Century. "Obvioualy,"
our guide Miss Curiel smiled, "he
had good relations with the
Jews." Longhena took the idea
from the theatres he built in
Venice; ironically, none of these
survive and the Schole provide the
only exmaples of the device.
Natural disasters seem to have
haunted the splendid red-and-
brown sanctuary: this year it
needed more restoration, spon-
sored by the Venice municipality,
after parts of the ceiling collapsed
during the winter.
According to one tradition, the
famed Venezia press one of the
first in Hebrew, which produced
the still-definitive editions of the
Talmud and great Biblical com-
mentaries operated in the
ground floor of the Schola
Spagnola. "Venezia Press"
posters and facsimiles are among
the more attractive souvenirs
available from the shops adjoining
the museum. Otherwise, it must
be said, they are the single
blemish on the lovely Campo, of-
fering the most revolting tourist
junk. Even worse than the usual
Murano-glass kitsch are the
figurines of stereotype East Euro-
pean Jews the likes of whom
probably never inhabited the
Ghetto anyway. One particularly
offensive but prominently
displayed item is a large chess
set ranging such Jews, as "black,"
against Catholics in white with a
rabbi and a pope as kings.
Though the present Ghetto tour
ends at the Schola Spagnola, the
last two of the Ghetto's five great
synagogues (the Ashkenazi Schola
Canton and the Italian-rite
synagogue) are also undergoing
restoration and are due to reopen
next year. The final phase of the
Museum complex will also include
a typical apartment of a Ghetto-
era Jewish family.
From the museum, across the
Campo to the Cosa di Riposo
(Jewish Old-Age Home). The
handsomely appointed institution,
founded in 1890, now cares for on-
ly 22 residents another sign of
the community's dwindling
numbers. It was at this house that
Jews were concentrated for
deportation during the Holocaust,

and the adjacent wall of the Cam-
po di Ghetto features an im-
pressive memorial, with modem
bronze bas-reliefs by Arbit Blatas
under a single, symbolic strand of
barbed wire. Most of the com-
munity, however, managed to
hide or escape, and only some 200
of its 1,200 members perished; it
now numbers some 650 as
against a peak of 5,000 in 1630.
Jewish Venice doesn't end at
the Ghetto, though. The Jewish

northern tip of Lido Island, just
marked its 600th anniversary.

The North American Aliyah Movement
Announces Pre-Aliyah Seminars To Israel
NAAM, the North American
Aliyah Movement, sponsors two-
week fact-finding seminars to
Israel, for people considering
Aliyah. These two-week "tours"
offer the participants the oppor-
tunity to "see the real Israel: the
Israel of everyday life and not the
tourist resort." The program is an
intense and intriguing examina-
tion of the practicalities and
realities of Israel: the pleasures
and pains of everyday living in the
Jewish State.
Each seminar includes meetings
with representatives of the Im-
migration and Absorption Depart-
ment of the World Zionist
Organization, discussions with ex-
perts in the fields of housing,
banking, medical care, employ-
ment and other concerns of new
immigrants, informal gatherings
in homes of settled North
American immigrants, visits to
new settlements, absorption
centers and established cities, and
limited "sightseeing."
Seminars tailored for specific
groups (retirees, singles, students
and professionals, for example)
will examine their special needs in
great detail. For example, the
retiree seminar will explore
volunteer opportunities, the pro-
blems associated with separation
from one's friends, relatives and
familiar surroundings, and other
key areas, such as medical care
and health isurance. (The NAAM
trips translate expectations into
hard facts.
Tours scheduled for the 1986-87
season include:

The highly subsidized cost,
determined by the time of year,
includes: round-trip airfare on El
Al From New York to Tel Aviv,
(flights from several other U.S.
cities might be possible at a slight-
ly higher cost. The ticket is also
good for 180 days and a free Euro-
pean stopover is permitted.) ac-
commodations is in three star
hotels, breakfast and dinner daily
(three meals on Shabbat), and all
scheduled touring. As with all
NAAM groups, food is strictly
kosher and there are no planned
activities on Shabbat that would
hinder observance.
The North American Aliyah
Movement (NAAM) is a
grassroots non-partisan organiza-
tion dedicated to promoting the
immigration of Jews to Israel. Its
more than 4,500 members consist
of individuals and families of all
ages and political affiliations who
are planning to settle in Israel in
the near future. NAAM sponsors
40 chapters in 20 cities which con-
duct workshops, lectures and
seminars, providing a forum for
future immigrants to meet and
discuss their Israel plans.
