Yevgeny Antipov, head of the
three-man Soviet consular
delegation that arrived in
Israel last week, is indicating
that the Soviet diplomatic
presence in Israel, however
low-level, may not end with his
delegation's departure.
Antipov, who is deputy
director of the Soviet Foreign
Ministry's Consular Depart-
ment, has told the Jerusalem
Post that the length of his
group's stay in Israel would
"depend on how soon we will
accomplish our tasks." He said
he was sure they would return
to the USSR before their
90-day visas expire.
But he was also sure that
they will be replaced by "other
officials" of "a consular
the sole purpose of their visit,
the first in 20 years by an of-
ficial Soviet group, was to
renew the passports of Soviet
nationals living in Israel and to
make an inventory of Soviet
property here.
He also maintained that the
description of his group as a
"delegation" was a misnomer
insofar as it implied
diplomatic-political substance.
But despite these disclaimers,
speculation is rife that there is
more to the visit than either
Moscow or Jerusalem is ready
to acknowledge.

Beckie Shopnick Writes About Living Against the Clock
Jewish Floridian Staff Writer
Beckie Shopnick, 98, is a
writer. She deals in her
writing with the images of her
past and the themes of her pre-
sent, namely aging.
"Sometimes I feel that it's
hard to live, and harder to
die," says Shopnick. "It is dif-
ficult to live when you grow
Is the writer's voice inside
her head still young?
"Yes," agrees Shopnick,
"but you can't turn the clock
back. Luckily, growing old
doesn't happen all at once it
comes gradually, and so you
grow used to it."
IN PIECES such as "My
Enemy, The Clock," Shopnick
gives voice to the experience
of growing old and ap-
proaching death, an ex-
perience few can com-
municate, an experience few
want to hear about.
"The best part of me,"
asserts Shopnick, "is that I
can still see, and my mind still
functions. I can observe people
and things, and I can describe
them in my own words.
"My own vision that's the
best part of me. That is what
makes me happy."
Sighing, Shopnick adds, "I
can still see and remember, the
good and the bad of it. The
good and the bad of it."

swoman, Shopnick is a resi-
dent of the Douglas Gardens

Hospital for the Aged. She is

panion there. of centenarian

Jewish Television Magazine
Puts Accent On Adventure
Sunday, Aug. 2 and Sunday,
Aug. 16, 4:30 p.m.. residents
living within Tampa city limits
will have an opportunity to
view "Jewish Television
Magazine," a series designed
by the Council of Jewish
Federations. JTV will be aired
on Channel 12, cable television
on the dates listed above and
on Tuesday, Aug.4 and Aug.
18, 9 p.m.
The first segment on the
August JTV series continues
the story of a group of ar-
tistically inclined North
American teenagers on a six-
week visit to Israel. The teens,
participating in a special
seminar sponsored by the
Board of Jewish Education of
Metropolitan Chicago and the
American Zionist Youth Foun-
dation, are spending the final
two weeks of their trip in
During their stay in this
vibrant city, the young visitors
meet with some of Israel's
most creative forces in fine
art, poetry, music, theater and
dance. These accomplished ar-
tists share their feelings about
Israel and art with the teens in
order to help the next genera-
tion discover its place in the
creative process.
The second segment of the
program focuses on adventure
travel in Israel. While most
tourists visit the historical and
cultural attractions of the
country by bus or private car,
adventure travelers get off the
beaten path and add a
challenging dimension to their
trip by exploring the remote
areas of Israel by land, sea and
Participants in special
"challenge tours" take in the
wondrous sights of Israel
while scuba diving, hang-
gliding, hiking, exploring
caves and pursuing other
unusual activities. Armed with
their sense of adventure, these
tourists are able to experience
the country in a totally unor-
thodox way.
The last segment of "Jewish
Television Magazine" takes a
look at a group of North
American college students
participating in Project Otz-
ma. a program sponsored
jointly by local North
American Jewish Federations,
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions and the Israeli Forum.
The students have completed
nearly a year of service in
Israel and will soon return to
the United States and Canada
for a year of service in local
Jewish communities.
uuring tneir time in Israel,
the Project Otzma participants
were involved in activities
such as an intensive Hebrew
language course, helping
farmers in the fields and work-
ing with children from disad-
\antaged neighborhoods. In
candid discussions, the
students describe their ex-
periences, reveal their feelings
about Israel and Judaism and
reflect on what this unique
program has meant to them.
New Arrivals
Expected Soon
"We have just been inform-
ed that the Tampa Jewish com-
munity will be receiving two
additional Soviet refugee
families within the next few
months. They will be rejoining
their relatives who are now
residing in the Tampa Bay
area. These expected arrivals
will bring to 11 the number of
individuals we are expecting to
resettle in our community,"
reported Karen Schilet and
Blossom Liebowitz, co-
chairmen of the Refugee
Resettlement Committee of
Tampa Jewish Family
The support and assistance
of the community was vital in
the successful resettlement of
Soviet refugees in the past and
once again we are asking the
Jewish community to aid in the
process. We are now in need of
additional furniture, household
items, apartments and
volunteers. We are planning to
pick up contributions of large
donated items on Monday,
Aug. 3. Smaller packages can
be dropped off at one of our
Volunteers will also be need-
ed to help with transportation,
home hospitality, apartment
set-ups, and English tutoring
on an individual or small group
We look forward to the con-
tinued efforts of the communi-
ty to help us make the resettle-
ment process a success again.

Haaretz quoted the Foreign
Ministry's political director
general, Yossi Beilin, as say-
ing, "Only a blind man can ig-
nore the numerous signs in-
dicating an important im-
provement in the Soviet at-
titude toward Israel."
the visit by the consular level
officials was a test by the
Kremlin of Arab reaction to a
possible improvement in
Soviet-Israel relations. "If
they see that they can live with
this reaction it is conceivable
that they will try to institu-
tionalize the delegation and
leave it permanently in Israel,
perhaps as a base for a future
embassy," Beilin said, accor-
ding to Haaretz.
Beilin also made clear that
when Israel agreed to grant
visas to the Soviet officials, it
was with the understanding
that a similar Israeli delega-
tion would visit the Soviet
Union "within a reasonable
period of time." Antipov told
reporters that there was no
need for a reciprocal visit
because there are no Israeli
nationals or Israeli property in
the USSR.
Some observers have
pointed out that the three-man
Soviet mission, accompanied
by staff, is too large simply to
look into the status of Soviet
nationals and Soviet property
in Israel. Most of the nationals
are functionaries of the Rus-
sian Orthodox Church and
Russian women who married
Israeli Arabs who were
students in the Soviet Union.
Most of the property is Church
IN ADDITION to Antipov,
an important member of the
delegation is Alexei
Chestyakov, described as a
diplomat with expertise on the
Middle East. The third
member is Genryk Flachin,
who attended a brief meeting
with Israeli officials in
Helsinki last August.
Chestyakov told the
Jerusalem Post Thursday (July
17) that the USSR did not
regard the lack of diplomatic
relations with Israel as an
obstacle to Soviet participa-
tion in an international con-
ference for Middle East peace.
He recalled that both countries
sent delegations to the peace
conference in Geneva in Oc-
tober, 1973 after the Yom Kip-
pur War, despite the absence
of relations.
Antipov was noncommittal
on the subject when question-
ed by reporters earlier in the
week. He would say only that
as a permanent member of the
United Nations Security Coun-
cil "certainly our role should
be taken into consideration."
About the role of a conference,
he said. "I believe it is too ear-
ly to talk about it."

Ministry's Consular Division,

There'll Be No Middle East Veto
President Reagan and British
Prime Minister Margaret
Thatcher agreed during a
White House meeting last Fri-
day (July 17) that an interna-
tional conference on the Mid-
dle East would not be permit-
ted to impose a solution or veto
agreements reached between
Israel and the Arab countries.
The two also agreed that on-
ly direct negotiations could br-
ing about a settlement to the
Arab-Israel conflict, Thatcher
said in her departure state-
ment on the south lawn of the
White House after the two-
hour meeting.
Thatcher met with Reagan
during her one-day visit here
after discussing the possibility
of an international conference
recently with Israeli Foreign
Minister Shimon Peres and
King Hussein of Jordan.
REAGAN, in bidding
farewell to Thatcher, spoke on-
ly in general terms, noting
that the two had "reviewed
the general prospects for
peace in the Middle East, in-
cluding the proposals for an in-
ternational conference and the
conditions necessary for peace
negotiations to be successful."
Thatcher was more specific,
stressing that she was c escrib-
ing what the two had "formal-
ly endorsed."
"We agreed that direct
negotiations between the par-
ties are the only practical way
to proceed," Thatcher explain-
ed. "We explored how an in-
ternational conference might
contribute to bring about such
negotiations. Clearly it would
not have the right to impose
solutions or to veto
agreements reached by the
parties. We must continue to
make progress in the peace
process and commit ourselves
to work for that."

There were two Jewish mayors other than our present
one in Tampa today ... the first, elected to four individual
terms was Herman Glogowski. He served in 1886, 1888,
1890, and 1892 and was responsible, among other things,
for electric lights and sidewalks in the downtown area, and
he laid the cornerstone for the Tampa Bay Hotel built by
H.B. Plant, the man responsible for bringing the railroad to
The second Jewish mayor in Tampa history was Col.
Frederich A. Salomonson. He was elected to three terms

An Open Letter In Response To NBC's Documentary
'Six-Days Plus 20 Years: A Dream Is Dying'
On July 1, NBC-TV broad-
cast a documentary tied to the
20th anniversary of the 1967
Six Day War, when Israel
thwarted a concerted Arab at-
tempt to annihilate it. NBC
had an opportunity for public
service journalism and public
education, by presenting an
objective, in-depth analysis of
the background and conse-
quences of the war.
Instead, the documentary
was one of the most blatantly
distorted and tendentious pro-
grams ever broadcast on the
Middle East. Its very title
"A Dream Is Dying" referr-
ing to the dream of peace
exposes the bias of those who
are ever ready to blame Israel
for whatever is wrong in the
NBC did, to be sure, make a
pretense of objectivity, with
fleeting references to the Arab
attempt to destroy Israel in
1967 and to some acts of Arab
terrorism. Moreover, some
Israelis were interviewed.
However, the thrust of the
program was to portray the
Palestinian Arabs of Judea-
Samaria (the "West Bank") as
the aggrieved party, as osten-
sibly innocent victims of harsh
conditions imposed upon them,
and as those who resort to
violence only in response to
Israel's unwanted, and as
depicted, brutal presence.
Not a word was uttered
about the PLO's genocidal
goal towards which its ter-
rorist policy and acts are aim-
ed. The Palestinian Arabs
were depicted always as vic-
tims, never as victimizers. The
vicious nature of terrorist
assaults on Israeli civilians
was noted barely in passing.
No critical questions were ever
asked of the Arabs, nor any
critical evaluations ever made
of their positions.
Nothing was said about the
long history of Arab terrorism
and violence that led up to the
Six Day War, assaults that
emanated from those ter-
ritories before Israel ever ar-
rived there. Nor was there
mention of the reason for the
continuation of the conflict
after all this time the Arab
world's persistent refusal to
accept Israel's legitimacy
within secure borders.
The producers of this show
never saw fit to note the sim-
ple, but overwhelming, fact
that Arab rejectionism has
been manifested endlessly and
repeatedly, most recently in
Yasser Arafat's break with
Jordan's King Hussein over
the issue of accepting UN
Security Council Resolution
242, which implicitly
guarantees Israel's right to ex-
ist within secure and recogniz-
ed boundaries; and this rejec-
tion was further intensified at
the latest PLO conference in
Algiers just a few months ago.
For NBC, this fact simply ap-
pears not to exist.
The PLO remains as ever
dedicated to Israel's destruc-
tion and, therefore, is not in-
terested in peace. Indeed,
when the prospects of peace
seem to improve, however
marginally, PLO acts of terror
increase. Some of the worst
violence has been perpetrated
by PLO thugs against Palesti-
nian Arab leaders who sought
dialogue with Israel Zafer
al-Masri, against whom
assassins were unleashed, and
Rashad al-Shawa and Hana
Seniora, whose property was
bombed as a warning. The
cruelty and cynicism of this
belligerency are the essential
background against which
Israel's measures of self-
protection and defense of
order must be understood. But
NBC ignored all that.
Israel's soldiers patrol the.
"West Bank," not out of
choice, but because to this day
no responsible Arab force for
peace, aside from Egypt, has
emerged to speak out and act.
The soldiers are there to pro-
tect the lives and safety of
Jews and Arabs alike, and they
are inevitably forced to defend
themselves when attacked by
mobs throwing stones and
molotov cocktails, shouting
"Death- to Israel!" the acts
and slogans of the PLO and of
the Arab rejectionists of
peace. Occasionally, the
soldiers may over-react, but
NBC's approach was to at-
tribute it to brutality rather
than to the self-defensive fear
and frustration which it actual-
ly is.
The producers of this pro-
gram make a point of noting
the existence of a "peace
movement" in Israel, of
Israelis that criticize their
government's policies on the
"West Bank." However, NBC
apparently lacked the jour-
nalistic objectivity to note that
no equivalent peace movement
exists among the Palestinian
Arabs. They do not openly
criticize the PLO's belligeren-
cy and barbarous acts of
murder, they have made no
outspoken call for the Arab
world to change its policy and
make peace with Israel.
NBC made a point of the "in-
nocent" Palestinian Arab de-
mand for self-determination,
without taking account of the

fact, amply documented over
the decades, that those who
commit terror and engage in
acts of violence against Israel,
in the name of self-
determination, in reality aim
at the liquidation of Israel.
These Arabs protest because
they have lost the war. Had
Israel lost the war, there
would have been no "occupa-
tion" because no Jews
would have been left alive.
It was unfortunate that NBC
did not see fit to mention even
a word about the extraor-
dinary enhancement of life for
the Palestinian Arabs in the 20
years of Israel's presence
there, especially when con-
trasted with the degraded con-
ditions of life during the 19
years of Jordanian occupation
since Israel's arrival, six
universitities were established
where none existed before, en-
joying complete academic
freedom under Arab academic
that five Arab daily papers
are in operation and that
freedom of speech is pro-
tected, as long as violence is
not incited;
that agriculture has vastly
improved, increasing produc-
tion from $38 million in 1968
to $372 million in 1981;
improved health services
and medical care, of the great
increases in consumer goods,
water and electricity and
telephone and roads, of a ma-
jor rise in income and the
NBC did not see fit to men-
tion a single word about any of
Even more striking was that
in considering the 20th an-
niversary, not even a whisper
was made of Israel's
systematic peace efforts since
1967, of such de facto ar-
rangements as the Open
Bridges policy which has
allowed the flow of people and
goods between the Arab in-
habitants of Judea-Samaria
and the neighboring Arab
countries, or of such great
milestones toward peace as the
Camp David Accords and the
Peace Treaty with Egypt,
which address the needs of the
Palestinian Arabs. Had the
Palestinian Arabs joined the
Camp David Accords, they
would have been able to
democratically elect represen-
tatives to discuss and resolve,
with Israel and Jordan, the
future status of Judea-
Samaria. Instead, they ar-
bitrarily rejected the accords
and isolated Egypt.
Israel continues energetical-
ly to pursue the dream of
peace, because the people of
Israel desperately need and
want peace. The debates
within Israel are not about the
dream of peace, but about the
best ways of achieving a
lasting peace. All Israelis
agree that a true peace must
guarantee Israel's security
and the safety of its citizens.
Nc Israeli wants a peace that
would disintegrate or that
would mask a continuing at-
tempt by Arab rejectionists to
regroup their forces for fur-
ther assaults upon Israel.
If the dream of peace is dy-
ing, as NBC claims, it is not
dying in Israel. For that mat-
ter, the dream is not dead or
dying even among all Arabs.
Anyone familiar with the facts
knows that there are Palesti-
nian Arabs who want peace,
but are either too fearful or
not yet ready to make the
necessary bold moves.
Egypt made peace so is
the dream dying?
The King of Morocco met
with Israel's Prime Minister
so is the dream dying?
King Hussein is moving
closer to the peace table so
is the dream dying?
The NBC program was not
only one-sided, but inflam-
matory, for it can only en-
courage Arab extremists to
believe that they can mouth
their empty rhetoric in front of
sympathetic TV interviewers,
while continuing to advocate
and perpetrate murder behind
the scenes. This program was
a disservice to peace and to
truthful journalism as well.
NBC owes its viewers an
authentic effort at balance,
sobriety, and a respect for the

also expressed concern about
the Pope's attitude toward the
Nazi Holocaust and anti-
Semitism and had discussed
the steps necessary to improve
Catholic-Jewish relations.
president of the National Con-
ference of Catholic Bishops,
said of the meeting: "Among
other things, we shared with
his Eminence our assessment
of Catholic-Jewish relations in
the United States, especially
as they have been impacted by
recent controversies and
allegations that the Catholic
Church is insensitive to the
Casaroli, second in command
at the Vatican, met with the
U.S. religious leaders at the
home here of Archbishop
Renato Martino, the Vatican's
permanent observer to the
United Nations. Casaroli
agreed to the unscheduled
meeting while he was on unof-
ficial business in New York.
The controversy heated up
last month when Pope John
Paul II granted an audience to
Waldheim in the face of ada-
mant Jewish opposition. The
Pope characterized Waldheim,
a former two-term UN
secretary general, as a great
international servant who has
advanced world peace.
BUT JEWISH groups were
angered that the Pope
neglected to mention
Waldheim's Nazi past or the
six million Jews and millions of
others who perished under the
Nazi regime that Waldheim
served as an intelligence of-
ficer in the Balkans.
"What is troubling is his at-
titude on receiving
Waldheim," Tanenbaum said.
"He has allowed Waldheim to
hijack the Pope and the
Vatican for his own purposes.
Waldheim called the Pope 'the
conscience of mankind,' and it
follows that Waldheim is ab-
solved in the conscience of
Tanenbaum said the Pope
has sent a mixed message on
the Holocaust, at times speak-
ing "movingly and sym-
pathetically about the unique
suffering of the Jewish peo-
ple." At other times, Tanen-
baum said, it was "as if he was
revising that history."
TANENBAUM added: "We
told them how real this pro-
blem is. It is not a problem that
is going to be dealt with in
cosmetic or quick-fix public
relations terms or by symbolic
gestures." American Catholics
have said openly the Papal
meeting was unfortunate.
Tanenbaum said he received
"hundreds of statements, let-
ters and calls from American
Catholic bishops, nuns and
priests saying it was a grave
The four Jewish leaders who
attended the meeting are
members of the International
Jewish Committee for Inter-
religious Consultations:
Tanenbaum; Rabbi Mordecai
Waxman, Committee chair-
man and president of the
Synagogue Council of America
(SCA); Rabbi Gilbert Klaper-
man, past president of the
Rabbinical Council of America;
and Rabbi Wolfe Kelman, ex-
ecutive vice president of the
Rabbinical Assembly. The
Catholic Archbishop of New
York, John Cardinal O'Con-
nor, also attended.
Tanenbaum traveled to the
Vatican Sunday to continue
the dialogue he began last
week with Vatican officials.
In response to the Pope's
meeting with Waldheim, at
least two American Jewish
organizations the American
Jewish Congress and SCA
have decided to boycott a

Is Your Will Outdated?
There are certainly more
pleasant things to do than
making a will or updating an
old one, but the Tampa Orlan-
do Pinellas Jewish Foundation
(TOP) has a new booklet that
could help in making those im-
portant decisions.
The free booklet entitled
"Will-making: Important ideas
to discuss with your lawyer"
has been written for the per-
son who has never made a will
as well as the one who needs to
update an old will.
The booklet includes a
beneficiary check list, types of
bequests, tax savers, trust in-
formation, and much more. It
continues with suggestions for
specific provisions of your will:
the form a gift should take,
spelling out who should get
personal effects, and how and
to whom the remainder of the
estate should be divided.
TOP advises that wills more
than a few years old, should be
reevaluated for the four Ps":
people, property, plans, and
People Your will should
reflect your current wishes for
the financial well-being of your
family, friends, and those
members of society you wish
to help.
Property Your posses-
sions are seldom constant. You
buy or inherit something new,
and you sell, give, or get rid of
other things. Personal in-
vestments, real estate,
possibly a business are all sub-
ject to change.
Plans Your will was a
good one when it was written,
but new circumstances can
alter the kind of plan you
want. Perhaps an outright be-
guest should now be in trust.
r you may fail to benefit from
tax-saving provisions of recent
tax laws. The state you now
live in, or the way you hold ti-
tle to property, may affect
your plans.
Professionals Although
only you can decide what to do
with your money, the lawyer,
trust officer, accountant, and
insurance agent are estate
planning specialists who con-
tinually update their skills to
make certain your plans will
meet the latest legal, financial,
and practical tests.
A TOP representative can
help you select the best form of
gift should you be considering
a bequest to the foundation.

Ambassador Netanyahu Speaks
To Largest Class In Ulpan History
NEW YORK "I feel very,
very good, and very very pro-
ud, when I am on the podium
defending our Jewish
homeland, Israel." Am-
bassador Benjamin Netanyahu
told hundreds of students in
the World Zionist
Organization-American Sec-
tion's Ulpan program for
study of the Hebrew language.
Ruth Livne, Director of the
Hebrew Language Division of
the WZO's Department of
Education and Culture which
conducts the program said its
more than 1200 students con-
stituted one of the largest of
the Ulpan programs. Dr. Eli
Tavin, who is the head of the
department, and Dr.
Mordechai Peled, Director of
its American Section joined
the students at 515 Park
Avenue in New York City to
celebrate the end of their
Hebrew study year, and in the
aftermath of the twentieth an-
niversary of the reunification
of Jerusalem.
Mr. Netanyahu presented an
incisive historical overview of
the Jews and the way the
world regarded them over the
centuries. "The Greeks and
Romans of antiquity shared
amazement at this tiny people
from a small land, and yet they
produced the greatest moral
teachings in history: of one
God, of man's obligation to
God and to his fellow man.
These overlords of the ancient
world were stunned by the im-
placable valor, determination
and stubborn fight of the Jews
for these values. They were
fascinated by this small,
valiant people that provided
such a band of heroes as
mankind had never seen:
Moses, Joshua, Samson, the
Judges, the Prophets and the
Kings Saul, David, Solomon
Bar Kochba, etc.
"One thing emerges," he
said. "The Jews had an ex-
traordinary capacity to defend
themselves and to act to con-
trol their own destiny. They
rose again and again to assert
"I want for your kids
what I wanted for
my kids 250 more
points on the SAT."
Stanley H. Kaplan
"1 know the pressure you and
your child feel as the SAT looms
ahead. But pressure without
preparation like ours can be a
disastrous duo.
Vbur child needs to understand
the test material thoroughly
Re lying only on "test tricks" and
shortcuts will shortchange your
child's chances for success.
Our record is irrefutable.
Thousands of Kaplan students
have raised their SAT scores 150,
200.250 points, or more. ***
So if you want the best for your
kids, as I did. give them a Kaplan
SAT prep course. We at Kaplan

their freedom and in-
dependence until they lost that
capacity, their liberty, their
land, their independence. In
the course of centuries of exile
the Jews lost their civil rights,
the right to complain about
that loss the authorities and
the courts, and the simple
ability to defend themselves.
Their existence was by suf-
ferance dependant upon the
whim of the rulers of the lands
in which they dwelt."
Mr. Netanyahu tolled the
litany of calamities, pogroms
and massacres that followed,
wiping out whole communities
of Jews in York, France,
Spain, the Ukraine, Kishinev
culminating in the Shoah,
the destruction of the Jews of
Eastern Europe with their
vast storehouse of Jewish
culture and knowledge.
"People of brilliance in every
domain were wiped out. This
was all a natural consequence
of the Jews' loss of the ability
to control their destiny. They
were a people for whom at best
you had pity, but for whom, for
the most part you had only
contempt. 'Jew' was a term of
derision and slander. Jews
were despised; held at a
distance a pariah and leper
among the nations." He noted
that "too many American
Jews began to absorb this view
of themselves. They wanted to
assimilate, to flee their
background, their people, their
families, their origin, their
history. Others turned their
weakness into a virtue. They
would not descend to the level
of the rabble. They were
morally superior and would
not get into conflict. This seal-
ed the fate of the Jewish peo-
ple," in his view. "Yet in the
darkest night of all you could
see the flickers of the flame."
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
The last frame of "Shoah"
tells the story of the young
Jew who escapes from the
Warsaw Ghetto through the
sewers. When he returns
everyone is dead, and he says:
"I thought I was the last Jew
in the world." The Jews had
come to the point of no return.
"Nevertheless, against the
most impossible odds, the
Jews wrestled back their
capacity to resist, to defend
themselves. From the nadir of
the Holocaust the flickers
gathered into a flame with the
miracle of Israel redeemed as
an indpendent state once again
nurtured and kept alive and
vibrant through a succession
of victories." He reminisced:
"In 1973 they thought they
had us. But instead we had
them. Nobody stopped us; we
stopped ourselves. Until the
Six Day War of 1967 the ques-
tion of Jewish survival was up
in the air. 1967 demonstrated
that the life force of the Jewish
people was never lost. That
victory guaranteed our sur-
vival. They could no longer
push us into the sea. Secondly,
the Jews rediscovered their
capacities. Further, the rise of
Israel and its triumphs
transformed the Jews and the
way people see them."
We have come full circle
from the ancient Greeks and
Romans. "People today are
awed and amazed by the
Jewish people's renewed take-
charge ability to mold their
destiny. All Jews now stand
taller, straighter, prouder

because of Israel. You see it all
over the world. In Moscow
young Jews stood up and said:
'We are Jews and we want to
go to Israel.' Jerusalem is a
symbol of that transformation.
First the Jews regained their
land and their freedom. Twen-
ty years later they liberated
their eternal capital."
Mr. Netanyahu concluded:
"I discovered one thing as Am-
bassador of Israel to the
United Nations. No one
respects you if you don't
respect yourself. I see
emissaries of despotic regimes
that control masses of humani-
ty who cannot lift a finger in
their own behalf, but must ex-
ist as subjects of tyrannies of
the darkest hue. Among the
other member nations of the
UN there is only a sprinkling
of less than thirty democracies
among whom Israel is proudly
numbered. So I look at Israel
a democracy that fights for
its values of social justice,
freedom, civil rights and
human dignity. And I feel
very, very good, and very,
very proud."
Ms. Livne said: "In the
course of mastering living
Hebrew, the Ulpan students
are immersed in Hebrew
culture, traditions, literature
and music. The accent on
Israel and its throbbing society
ushers our students into the
worldwide fellowship of
Jewish peoplehood."

The California Achievement

widely used throughout the na-

It comes as no surprise to
anyone that this years scores
of the Hillel students are up to
about five grades above grade

which combines a superior
secular academic curriculum
as well as Judaic studies.
"We impart information to
the children, with the objective
being an acquisition of basic

those two communities as the
reason they are working with
the Mayor on behalf of the
Pope's visit.
Melvin Swig, chairman of the
board of directors of the
Federation, said that the city's
welcoming of the Pontiff
would be no different than that
for any other head of state, in-
cluding President Reagan.
The Mayor explained that
although she endorsed the na-
tional petition protesting the
Waldheim meeting, she did so
mostly because of its call for
Vatican recognition of Israel.
The petition was initiated by
the Simon Wiesenthal Center
of Los Angeles. The Mayor
said that if the opportunity
arises during the Pope's visit,
she will press him on the issue.
skills in understanding
sentence meaning, passage
details, character analysis,
main ideas, and interpretation
of events.
Application of rules for
various structural forms are
measured in spelling tests.
Language mechanics and ex-
pression items provide a clear
focus on the skills that underlie
effective written expression.
These include using various
parts of speech, organizing
sentences and capitalization
and punctuation skills too.
The mathematics test is
composed, of two parts, com-
putation and concepts. Com-
putation measures
mathematical operations of ad-

emphasize the reasoning skills
necessary for practical pro-
blem solving.
Mr. Scharf continued,
"Hillel places heavy emphasis
on individualized study The
development of responsibility
for learning is shared by the
student. I think the evidence is
overwhelming when you see
the results of such a test.
These children are able to com-
prehend a great deal above
their grade level if given the

Congregation Rodeph Sholom Bi-Annual Trip To Israel A Success
Rabbi Kenneth and Aviva
Berger along with Co-
Chairmen, Robert and Bemice
Wolf and Sam and Linda Blum
escorted 40 members and
friends of Congregation
Rodeph Sholom to celebrate
Israel's 39th birthday.
The eve of Yom Ha-Atmauot
(Independence Day) was
celebrated in the streets of
Jerusalem. Thousands of
Israelis crowded the streets
with song and dance. Band-
stands were erected at every
major intersection, while
children sprayed shaving
cream, threw confetti, and
bopped each other with toy
During the day's celebration,
our group received a VIP in-
vitation to meet the Mayor of
Jerusalem, Teddy Kollek, near
the Jaffa Gate. Our own
Mayor, Sandy Friedman, had
sent a book on Tampa with
personal greetings which Rab-
bi Berger delivered in person
to Mr. Kollek. The Mayor was
a most gracious host, and took
plenty of time for pictures.
One of the special moments
was a visit to meet IDF forces
on the Golan Heights near the
Syrian Border. Lunch was en-
joyed together, and we ex-
changed our white Rodeph
Sholom tour hats with their
Army head gear. We even
helped them remove a half
track rubber lining. As we
returned to the bus, they wav-
ed, smiled, and hated to see us
go. We felt a wonderful con-
nection to them as well.
We planted trees in our
Rodeph Sholom forest near
Safed. We Davened by the
"Kotel" (Western Wall) on
Erev Shabbat, as hundreds of
Yeshivah students descended
the steps from the Jewish
Quarter, arms over shoulders
with their Rebbe. We picnick-
ed close to the place where
David slew Goliath. We swam
in the Dead Sea, and put on
Tallit and Tefillin in the An-
cient Synagogue on Masada.
We visited the new Conser-
vative Kibbutz Ha-Naton, and
we recited Havdolah overlook-
ing Jerusalem with our Sister-
Conservative Congregation,
Moreshet Avraham in south
Of course, any trip to Israel
contains as Naomi Shemir, the
famous lyricist has written,
the "bitter and the sweet." We
recite a heart-wrenching
Yiskor service at Yad V'shem,
the Holocaust memorial for
the six million. We shared on
Memorial Day, a very moving
ceremony with the citizens of
Eilat. Mournful poetry, a
children's choir, and torch
bearers added to comments by
Rabbis and Dignitaries, which
recalled all of our young men
and women who fell during
Israel's wars.
For 40 people, this 15-day
tour will never be forgotten.
We hope that everyone in the
near future will have the op-
portunity to share in the
greatest miracle of our day-a
visit to Eretz Yisrael.
"Celebrating Yom Ha-Atzmaout
New Agenda
Shows Left-Leaning in Nicaragua
New Jewish Agenda decided
at its biennial convention here
last week to send a Benjamin
Linder Brigade to Nicaragua
in December to reopen the con-
fiscated Managua synagogue
as a Jewish cultural center.
Most of Nicaragua's tiny
Jewish community fled the
country when the Sandinista-
led revolution ousted Gen.
Anastasio Somoza-Debayle,
the military dictator, in 1979.
Some Jewish organizations
contend that the Jews were
forced to leave and their pro-
perty confiscated. Some also
accept the Reagan Ad-
ministration's linkage of the
Sandinista government with
the Palestine Liberation
BUT NJA, at meetings July
9-12 at the University of
California at Los Angeles,
took a far different view. Its
task force on Central America
said its "work has been
especially significant in
building support against aid to
the Contras, building the
Jewish sanctuary movement,
supporting material aid pro-
jects for Nicaragua, El
Salvador and Guatemala,
challenging disinformation
(especially the myth of anti-
Semitism in Nicaragua) in the
Jewish community and the
public at large, and ensuring
that Jews are proportionately
represented in coalitions and
other anti-intervention
Several mainstream Jewish
organizations have cited
evidence of anti-Semitism on
the part of the Sandinistas and
claim they collaborate with the
PLO and Libya.
Criticism of Reagan Ad-
ministration policies in Central
America was just one of many
controversial issues examined
and debated by 500 members
of the seven-year-old Jewish
organization "'th positions to
the left o' ...j U.S. Jewish
NJA's five national task
forces presented strategy
papers that will set the
organization's course for the
next two years. A key
stratagem is to form alliances
for political change.
FOR THE first time, NJA
took up the issue of Soviet
Jewry. Delegates agreed that
NJA must become active on
behalf of rights in the Soviet
Union, notwithstanding possi-
ble objections by a tiny minori-
ty of members who regard the
USSR as a model society.
But the most controversial
positions related to the Middle
East. The Middle East
strategy paper set out the
principal political thrust of the
NJA's work to influence
American policy to: support
the participation of the PLO in
the peace process as the inter-
nationally recognized
representative of the Palesti-
nian people; help negotiate an
international peace conference
under United Nations sponsor-
ship with participation of
Israel, the PLO, the neighbor-
ing Arab states, the U.S. and
the Soviet Union; and to work
for the reduction of arms sup-
plies to the Middle East and
demilitarization of the con-
flicts there.
The task force also called for
religious freedom in Israel for
Jews and non-Jews.
Gordie Pellman, co-chair of
the Middle East task force,
said "The reality of the PLO is
that it represents the great
majority of Palestinians and
we must recognize this." At
the convention's Mideast
workshop, a strong minority
position was expressed that
NJA has moved too far ahead
of the Jewish community on
this issue. But the overwhelm-
ing consensus was that Israel
should seize the moment and
negotiate with the PLO.
THIS WAS reinforced in a
speech at the Mideast plenary
by PLO member Afif Safieh, a
former staff member at the of-
fice of PLO chief Yasir Arafat
and currently a visiting pro-
fessor at Harvard University.
"You can't make peace with
people you never talk to," he
said. "It is in the interests of
Israel, the Jewish people and
moral decency for Israel and
the PLO to sit at a table with
other Arab states and the
superpowers and negotiate a
settlement that would allow
for the self-determination of
both peoples. It's taken some
convincing, but the majority of
the Palestinian people are
ready to compromise."
Latif Dori, a leader of the
Mapam Party in Israel,
agreed. "If we don't shake
hands we'll end up shaking
guns," he said. Dori is one of
four Israelis who met with a
PLO delegation in Rumania.
They are currently on trial for
violating a law forbidding
Israeli citizens to have any
contact with the PLO.
NJA resolutions on the Mid-
dle East condemned the
Reagan Administration deci-
sions to deport Palestinians
and to close PLO offices in the
U.S. The NJA restated its
basic position on the Middle
East support for the two-
state Israel/Palestine option as
the basis on which to negotiate
the future status of the West
Bank and Gaza Strip.

Secretary of State George
Shultz discussed his "central
theme" of foreign policy
before the national convention
of Hadassah here Monday
evening (July 13), telling the
2,500 delegates that like their
founder, Henrietta Szold, the
United States must "remain
engaged and involved in global
Noting at the outset that
"discussing engagement to
American Jews is preaching to
the choir," Shultz said he was
disturbed by signs that some
Americans are "growing
tired" of this commitment.
He offered an overview of
why the United States must
maintain its role as the active
leader of freedom throughout
the world, focusing on the Per-
sian Gulf and the Mideast con-
flict, and offering warm praise
for Israel as "our faithful ally
and perpetual friend."
State, who later received
Hadassah's highest honor, the
Henrietta Szold Humanitarian
Award, said that it is in
America's interests that Iran
not dominate the other coun-
tries of the Persian Gulf and
that the USSR not play an in-
creasing role in the oil-rich
region. "We need to stand up
diplomatically there, and we
are," he said, "and we can't
allow ourselves to be pushed
He said the U.S.. will con-
tinue to be engaged in the
Mideast peace effort, with the
key being direct, bilateral
negotiations. "There is con-
siderable work to do," he said,
"and it may never come to
pass, but we must work on it."
Recalling the euphoria he
sensed among Israelis follow-
ing the late Egyptian Presi-
dent Anwar Sadat's visit to
Jerusalem a decade ago,
Shultz asserted, "1 know in my
bones that Israel wants
peace." But he also emphasiz-
ed several times in his
35-minute remarks that Jor-
dan's King Hussein wants
peace as well. (Indeed, one
veteran State Department of-
ficial noted that "the most in-
teresting thing about this
speech was what he didn't say
for instance, he never men-
tioned Syria.")
SHULTZ SAID that the Ad-
ministration agrees with Hus-
sein that there should be
Palestinian representation at
the peace talks and that the
Palestinians should be part of
the Jordanian delegation. As
for Soviet participation, Shultz
said they "deserve a place at
the peace table only if they act
in a deserving way." He called
on Moscow to recognize Israel
and enhance its treatment of
Soviet Jews before seeking a
role in peace negotiations.
That statement was greeted
with warm applause by the
delegates of the world's
largest Zionist organization.
While stressing American
efforts to "minimize the risk,"
Shultz said that "we know that
doing nothing does not in-
crease the chance for peace."
He said the U.S. is pledged "to
harness the desire for peace."

Growing Old, Fear of the Clock

Shopnick sums it all up in "My
Enemy, The Clock," as
"If I ever had an enemy,
the alarm clock is my worst.

down like a detective with its

doesn't help. Sometimes I pi-

already open, and the pain-

its skin, waiting for your gen-
tle caress and dab, dab, dab.
Go ahead, get a move on, you.

"That's how I am constant-

And before I can regain my
breath, I hear the alarm from
all corners of the room,

mushroom and barley, black
as mud! I don't care if I miss

MOSAIC will not only pro-
vide a sense of history and
pride for the Jewish communi-
ty; it will be designed to at-
tract visitors of all ethnic
groups with the hope that they
too will be inspired to present
similar projects reflecting
their own experience.
Tampa is happy to be an in-
tregal part of Mosaic and a
stop on the statewide tour ...

working on this important and
interesting project contact

Rabbi Steven J. Kaplan was
named the chaplain at the
University of South Florida's
(USF) Florida Mental Health
Institute (FMHI) recently.
"We are fortunate to have
someone with Rabbi Kaplan's
qualifications coordinating the
pastoral counseling and ser-
vices for our clients and staff,"
said Dr. Jack Zusman, in-
stitute director.
Three local ministers par-
ticipated in the installation of
the chaplain. The Rev. Michael
Young, pastor of the Unitarian
Universalist Church in Tampa,
opened the program. The Rev.
Tom Geary, campus minister
of the Baptist Student
Ministry at USF, spoke about
the institute's responsibilities
to its clients, the community
and the chaplain. The Rev.
Mark Chidley, chaplain at the
H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center,
explained the chaplain's
responsibilities to the institute
and its clients.
As chaplain at FMHI,
Kaplan will coordinate
religious activities and serve
as a liaison between clients
and community churches. He
has begun meeting the clients
and staff, and plans on
reaching area clergy and infor-
ming them and the community
of the Institute's services.
"Many FMHI clients have a
real need for religious expres-
sion," Kaplan stated. "Some
have confusion over religious
issues. Florida Mental Health
Institute is acknowledging and
seeing to these needs."
Kaplan currently serves as
the rabbi for the Hillel Jewish
Student Centers at USF and
the University of Tampa and
teaches courses for USF's
departments of philosophy and
religious studies. The founder
and rabbi of the Reconstruc-
tionist Community Chavurah
in Tampa and Lakeland, he
also serves as rabbinic advisor
to congregations in Tampa and
Kaplan has been a guest
speaker at public and private
colleges in New York and
Florida where he has con-
Rabbi Steven J. Kaplan
ducted pastoral counseling.
He is an active member in
the Association of Mental
Health Clergy, the American
Association of Rabbis, the
American Philosophical
Association, and the American
Academy of Religion.
Already a well-published
author in his field, Kaplan has
six articles being published in
professional journals during
the next year. A book he co-
authored titled "New Ap-
proaches in Pastoral Counsel-
ing" will soon be available.

ADL's Nate Perlmutter Dead of Cancer Mayors of Three U.S.
Nathan Perlmutter, national
director of the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith since 1979, died July 14
at Memorial Sloan-Kettering
Cancer Center in Manhattan.
He was 64.
Mr. Perlmutter was a reci-
pient last month of the 1987
Presidential Medal of
Freedom, America's highest
civilian award, for his public
service in making it "his life
work to champion human
dignity. He is a hero indeed,"
President Reagan said in mak-
ing the presentation, "a hero
of the human spirit."
In May, New York City
Mayor Edward I. Koch
presented him with The
Eleanor Roosevelt Human
Rights Award "for extraor-
dinary courage, enduring
humanity, unshakeable faith in
a world without prejudice," at
a luncheon ceremony at Gracie
In March, he was awarded
an Honorary Degree of Doctor
of Humane Letters from
Hebrew Union College
Jewish Institute of Religion.
The citation described him as
follows: "Devoted Jewish
leader, distinguished attorney
and outstanding citizen whose
Nathan Perlmutter
name has been synonymous
with vigorously combatting
bigotry and discrimination,
whose long and exceptional
service to the Jewish people is
a reflection of his religious
commitment, whose dedica-
tion to the ideals of Judaism
has made him an emissary of
social justice and brotherhood,
whose manifold talents, fused
with pragmatic idealism, have
elevated him to national
Last January, President
Reagan paid special tribute to
him on the occasion of Mr.
Perlmutter's receiving the
B'nai B'rith International
Presidential Gold Medallion
for Humanitarianism at a gala
luncheon at New York's Mar-
riott Marquis hotel. President
Reagan said in a letter read at
the event: "I want to pay
tribute to you for your decades
of courageous, brilliant, and
quietly charismatic leadership
in the Jewish community ..
You have done much to
strengthen the American
tradition of individual rights.
You have fought tirelessly for
the freedom and security of
Jews everywhere .. remin-
ding us always that the fate of
Jews is inextricably linked to
the fate of democracy ... To
read your articles and books is
to experience the workings of
a free mind reexamining old
ideas in order to better unders-
tand the present and to work
for a better future ..."
An author, lecturer, lawyer,
former Marine infantry officer
and 38-year veteran in the

Perlmutter is survived by his
wife, Ruthann, his son, Dean,
his daughter Nina Mohit, his
brother, Philip, and sister-in-
law Roseann.

Cities On Papal Tour
In press briefings in Miami,
Los Angeles and New York,
the Simon Wiesenthal Center
announced the launching of a
major national petition drive
aimed at the Vatican in the
aftermath of the controversial
Pope-Waldheim meeting.
Mayors Alex Daoud of Miami
Beach, Tom Bradley of Los
Angeles and Dianne Feinstein
of San Francisco have lent
their names to this drive.
The "Communication of
Consceience", addressed to
Pope John Paul II, not only
protests the honor accorded to
Waldheim by the Pope, but
calls for the Vatican to pro-
mptly recognize the State of
Israel, borne out of the ashes
of Auschwitz. "Let not the
record of history read that the
Vatican, which was among
those which recognized
Hitler's Third Reich a
regime that murdered Jews
failed to recognize the State
which stands as the universal
symbol of Jewish renewal,"
the petition reads in part.
Rabbi Marvin Hier, Dean of
the Wiesenthal Center, em-
phasized that "Now is not the
time for kind word, but rather
for a noble deed." At each
press conference survivors
joined with public officials in
signing the petition. Present
are the Miami press con-
ference, in addition to Mayor
Daoud, was Wiesenthal Center
National Director for Develop-
ment Rabbi Meyer May,
Southern Region Director for
Development Robert L.
Novak, State Representative
Elaine Bloom and Holocaust
survivors Rita Hofrichter,
Maurice Rittner and Abe
Resnick, who is also
Mayor of Miami Beach.
Among other public officials
to have signed the petition are
Congressman Mel Levine (D-
CA), David Dreier (R-CA),
Wayne Owens (D-UT), Tom
Lantos (D-CA), Les AuCoin
(D-OR), John Bryant (D-TX),
Theodore Weiss (D-NY) and
Charles E. Schumer (D-NY),
California State Senator David
Roberti, Speaker of the
California State Assembly,
Willie Brown, and New York
City Councilman Robert J.
The Center's 362,000
memebr families will receive
the "Communication of Cons-
cience" in the mail.
"Throughout major cities in
the United States," Rabbi
Hier reported, "Booths will be
set up for signatures from
Jews and non-Jews alike who
are perplexed and outraged at
the Vatican meeting, and who
feel that only a major, concrete
step recognition of the State
of Israel can possibly ensure
a meaningful future dialogue
between the Vatican and
world Jewry." Rabbi Hier also
emphasized that the con-
troversy is not one between
American Catholics and Jews,
but an issue which involves the
world Jewish community and
the Holy see.
Petitions are available
through the Simon Wiesenthal
Center's Los Angeles office as
well as its regional offices in
New York, Chicago, Miami,
Toronto and Jerusalem. In

Boulevard North Miami, FL

Ten easy to follow tips on how to make a
memory during the Summer of '87.
1. Sense the excitement as you get off the
bus or out of the car each morning. Look
around What activities are scheduled for
2. Bring that special art project that you
made in Arts and Crafts with Dorit and Zvia
home for your family to enjoy. You made it all
by yourself. No one has one just like yours -
it's an original!
3. Learn how to swim free-style across the
width of the pool! Earn a patch and Red Cross
4. Help your team win the Maccabiah. Do
your best, and maybe your team will win.
5. Look at the hamster playing with his toy.
Watch the caterpillars weave a cocoon. Take
a nature walk through the park what do
you hear?
6. Sing a camp song, a special one for
openers and closers. The camp spirit is
everywhere. A bit hoarse? It's OK. Keep up
the good singing!
7. Open lunch and have that special treat
Mom/Dad packed oh, don't forget to sam-
ple your sandwich first!
8. SHABBAT SHALOM! Next week it will
be your group's turn to lead Shabbat with
9. Make an extra effort to be nice to a
friend who's not having a good day. You felt
good when your counselor put his/her hand on
your shoulder and told you how much he/she
enjoys having you in the group!
10. Board the bus, get in your carpool to go
home, tired but happy. Think of all the ac-
tivities you did today Cooking, Swimming,
Nature, Judaics, Drama, Arts and Crafts,
Karate, Tennis, Sports, and Computers.
What are we doing tomorrow? Oh, well
whatever happens, you know it will be fun!
