Holiday of tradition
THE LIGHTS, falls each year on the 25th of Kislev. An
ancient religious-national holiday in character and
origin, Hanuka is today celebrated much in the same
manner as instituted by the Talmudic rabbis, over a
thousand years ago.
Hanuka celebrates the victory of the Jews over the
Seleucid Greeks, (approximately 164 BCE), following a
long struggle against the reign of Antiochus
Epiphanes, who proscribed the laws of the Tora.
Antiochus took from the Temple the golden seven-
branched candelabrum the distinguishing symbol of
Israel from the time of Moses. His armies maliciously
defiled the consecrated Temple oil, preventing the Jews
from fulfilling the command to kindle the lamp with
that oil.
When the Hasmoneans prevailed over the Selucids
and the Maccabean army entered Jerusalem, its com-
manding officer, Judah Maccabee, nullified the edicts of
Antiochus and reinstated the laws of the Tora.
Judah began to repair the Temple and rid it of the
pagan statuary and symbols the Greeks had installed.
To replace the stolen candelabrum, the Jews sup-
posedly made a temporary one out of iron spokes,
salvaged from primitive war weaponry. They were able
to renew services in the Temple, but still had no conse-
crated oil.
They then discovered a clay jug closed with the High
Priest's seal; in it was enough oil for one night. The
Jews celebrated the rededication of the Temple on the
25th of Kislev, and kindled the candelabrum. To spread
news of the victory, lights were also kindled throughout
the city of Jerusalem, and the celebration was called
Hanuka, which means dedication.
Legend has it that the oil burned not only for one
day, but for eight days, hence the eight days of
Today, the victory over Antiochus is celebrated with
the lighting of the candles in a menorah. one each night
for the duration of eight days. A shamash candle is
traditionally included in the menorah. The shamash,
ordinarily used to light the other eight candles, came
into usage because Hanuka is a holiday of miracles, and
the ancient sages proclaimed that the candles not be
used for illumination of the house.
Until the advent of electricity, alongside each
Hanukiah was a special candle for normal household
purposes the shamash.

Peres says France is
one of Israel's best allies
PARIS (JTA) Premier
Shimon Peres proclaimed here
that France ranks as one of
Israel's major allies. "Israel
needs and now has two major
allies the United States of
America and France," Peres
declared in response to a toast at
a banquet given in his honor by
Premier Laurent Fabius.
The Israeli leader arrived here
for a three-day official visit, the
first incumbent Israeli Premier to
come to France since the late
David Ben Gurion. The especially
warm welcome he received at
Orly Airport and at an appear-
ance before the National As-
sembly was reflected at the
banquet where Peres and Fabius
stressed the renewal of the
Franco-Israeli "special relation-
ship" after a 20 year break.
"France is and will remain
loyal to her friends. I welcome
our friend Shimon Peres, Prime
Minister of our friend, Israel,"
Fabius declared before the dinner
guests who included a half dozen
ranking Cabinet ministers.
Peres met with President
Francois Mitterrand for what
was expected to be a detailed dis-
cussion of Middle East issues and
bilateral relations. Mitrerrand is
the only Western statesman to
have met in recent months with a
wide array of Arab leaders.
These include King Hassan of
Morocco, President Habib Bour-
guiba of Tunisia, Col. Muammar
Qaddafi of Libya, King Hussein
of Jordan, Egyptians President
Hosni Mubarak and President
Hafez Assad of Syria.
Perss was said to be anxious to
hear Mitterrand's first hand im-
pressions of the role at least some
of these leaders might play in the
Middle East peace process. He is
especially interested in Mitter-
rand's assessment of Assad's
intentions which could directly
effect Israel's current negotia-
tions with Lebanon for the with-
drawal of Israeli forces from
south Lebanon and the future
security of Isrel's northern
borders. Peres is also aware of
Mitterrand's desire that France
play a key role in Mideast pe&J
But the most interest arourJ
here since Peres' arrival centertJ
on reports that he and FabioJ
had discussed the purchase by I
Israel of a nuclear power sutiojl
manufactured in France. It (
said to have been one of thel
bilaterial subjects that came uJ
during the 46 minute privaul
meeting the two premiers had.
Fabius confirmed to reported!
that the sale of a power statio
had been discussed. He refused u
specify the type of generator b|
he did not rule out nuclear power |
French officials said the ,
problem is that Israel is not,
signatory to the Vienna Conveo
tion which provides for regul
inspection of nuclear installation
by the Vienna-based AtomJel
Energy Commission. The inspeel
tion is to ascertain whethal
nuclear weapons are being pn>|
duced. The officials said Israeli
might circumvent this ohstackl
by agreeing to open its French-
made installation to inspection.

Ambassador Jeanne Kirkpatrick
will meet with President Reagan
to assure an orderly transition at
the United Nations and to
discuss her future in a second
Reagan administration. Louis
Segesvary, Deputy Public
Affairs Counselor to Kirkpatrick,
said that the ambassador has
repeatedly said she wanted to
leave the U.N. post at the end of
the current session of the general
assembly, but that she might
stay on for a month or more until
a suitable replacement is named.
Much speculation has surfaced
on a possible Kirkpatrick
replacement including Lou Lehr-
man. a New York Republican
1988 presidential hopeful;
Ambassador Max Kampelman;
Ambassador to Italy, Maxwell
Rabb: Howard Baker, outgoing
Senate Majority leader; and
Charles Percy, recently defeated
Senator from Illinois who headed
the Foreign Relations Commit-
tee. Other contenders for the job
appear to be General Vernon
Walters, Reagan's Ambassador-
at-Large. and former Illinois
Republican Congressman
Edward Derwinslri.
As for Waiters, "He's
multilingual, and he handles
himself well with the media,"
assessed Segesvary. "I was
impressed with how articulate
and at ease he was with Mike
Wallace, a tough interviewer, on
a recent '60 Minutes' segment.
He took positions that I think
Kirkpatrick would have taken."
Walters, however, could be
suspect because of his alleged
contact with the PLO. New York
magazine reported that Walters
had met with a top PLO official
in Morocco after the Mroz talks
broke off, according to a well-
placed source. Last year, it was
revealed that Republican admin-
istration officials had talked with
members of the PLO in a 1962
meeting aranged thourgh Mroz, a
private citizen. A second source
said that in February, 1964,
Walters had yet another meeting
with the PLO and added that
Walters had also met with Arafat
in Jordan during March of this
At the time, Walters couldn't
be reached for contact but his
executive assistant categorically
denied that Walters had any PLO
meetings as Ambasador-at-
President Reagan would have
liked Kirkpatrick to remain in her
job at the U.N., but recognized
her oft-stated desire to step
down, according to White House
spokesman Larry Speakes.
Kirkpatrick, a conservative
Democrat plucked by Reagan
from the faculty of Georgetown
University, commented that she
wished to return to private life
but her announcement did little
to end speculation that she might
be in line for another government
Speakes said,"The president
values her work and feels she is
an asset to the administration.''
The ambassador is highly
regarded by Reagan allies on the
political right and would like to
maintain her influence within the
White House. Kirkpatrick had
been touted as a possible
replacement for Secretary of
State Shultz and National
Security Advisor McFarlane, but
both will retain their jobs for the
next four years she has also
been discussed as a possible
replacement for Presidential
Counselor Edwin Meese if he is
confirmed as Attorney General,
but White House officials have
said there are "no current plans
to replace Meese."
"Kirkpatrick has net J
speculated on Meese's job.j
Segesvary said. He add
"There is always the possibility!
that after a year or so as peoplcl
leave or rotate in office, Kirk-I
patrick could be recalled to play 11
major role in the Reagan admifr|
A top leader in Jewish affairsj
who asked to be unnamed, said,
"Kirkpatrick has been a greatl
friend of Israel and will be a great!
loss to the Jewish community ifl
she leaves the government. [
Unfortunately, she and Secretaijl
of State Shultz have differencal
of opinion and I believe thatl
Shultz would attempt to block!
any job for her in the administnl
tion even as an informal counj
selor or advisor."
Dr. Neil Sanberg. executivedj
rector of the American Jews
Committee, lauded Kirkpatri
for her "firmness and tori
lightness in assuring the securi
of Israel."

Lipoff speaks to JFSB Endowment program
Norman Lipoff, the immediate
past President of the Miami
Federation and the former Chair-
man of the Miami Federation's
Endowment program, spoke to
about 60 lay people about how to
build a more successful Endow-
ment program. At this Dec. 4
meeting, Mr. Lipoff stated that
the community leadership must
first establish the purpose of the
Endowment program.
The Endowment Fund is the
"savings account" which under-
writes the future financial sta-
bility of the Federation. In most
Federation communities, Endow-
ment assets are utilized to
provide funding for emergencies
and innovative pilot projects.
Mr. Lipoff noted that by the
end of this month, Endowment
Fund assets nationwide will
exceed $1 billion. Approximately
60 Federation Endowment
programs are responsible for
compiling this record total.
During 1983 alone, $290.6 million
was added to Federation Endow-
ment programs.
These historic figures in the
history of Jewish Philanthropy
were reached through the use of
rather sophisticated legal vehi-
cles. For example, contributions
of appreciated property may be
facilitated by stock tender offers.
This type of gift can be "pre-
banked" in a Philanthropic Fund
in order to provide future charit-
able distributions for a variety of
charitable institutions. There-
fore, "windfalls" which may
occur due to property apprecia-
tion may be spread out over
several years for tax reasons.
Mr. Lipoff, the National Chair-
man of the Council of Jewish
Federations' Endowment Steer-
Norman Lipoff
ing Committee and a senior tax
partner in the Miami Law Firm of
Greenberg, Traurig, Askew,
Hoffman, Lipoff, Rosen and
Quentel, P.A., stressed that the
lay leadership within the com-
munity must be sensitive to spe-
cific transactions which present
opportunities for Endowment
Fund development. The charit-
able contribution of appreciated
stock prior to entering into an
agreement for its sale results in
to primary advantages to the
donor: (1) a charitable deduction
based upon the fair market value
of the stock when donated with
the right to carry over for five
succeeding years that amount of
the deduction not used by the
donor in the year of the gift; and
(2) the avoidance of income tax
on the capital gain which would
have to be recognized in a sale
but not in a charitable contribu-
tion. Moreover, contributions of
closely held stock also present
particular opportunities for
donors and for Endowment Fund
South Florida presents unique
and particularized opportunities
for Endowment Fund develop-
ment. The tranfer of remainder
interests in personal residences
have appealed to prospective
donors in other Florida com-
munities. Current and sometimes
higher income yields can be ob-
tained through the use of other
charitable giving vehicles:
(1) The Pooled income Fund; and
(2) The Charitable Remainder
According to Mr. Lipoff, South
Broward must be able to more
effectively capitalize on Endow-
ment sales opportunities. For a
highly successful program, the
lay leadership must define goals
and establish a clear purpose for
the Endowment program. It is
the depth and quality of the lay
leadership's action which will
build a more successful Endow-
ment program.

casts light on many historical
facts that explain the origins of
classic and modern anti-Semitism
of which even the higher
educated echelons of Italian
society have been unaware.
He noted that the West, after
adopting the unique mono-
theistic, ethical and universal
messages of Judaism, forgot the
Jewish origins of Christian
values. The reason for the lapse
of memory lies in history, Geller
said. The State permitted anti-
Jewish myths to replace the
authentic Jewish religious
message, he said.
His book draws attention to
the rich cultural and archaeo-
logical patrimony of Roman
Judaism, now rapidly deterio-
rating for lack of means for its
preservaton or for new diggings.
"If we succeed in replacing
ancient anti-Jewish myths with
an understanding of history, we
might begin to really uproot the
ingrained effects of centuries-
long education aimed at disdain

"Do not seporote me from the Chosen,
the joy, the light, the splendor. Let me
see the light of Israel/'
- Ancient prayer of redemption by Ethiopian Jewb in Africa
More than 7,000 Ethiopian Jews ore fulfilling the dreams of their ancestors
by re-establishing their roots in Eretz Yisrael. But the transition to modern
Israeli society is a drastic adjustment from their more than 2,000-year-old
culture. It is also costly and difficult.
This is where the absorption program of the Jewish Agency for Israel,
funded by your UJA/community campaign gift, plays a vital role. Before the
Ethiopian Jews can moke their way into Israeli society, there are numerous
health, cultural and educational gaps which must be bridged.
Your support is necessary, not only to meet the needs of Israel's newest
immigrants from Ethiopia, but the more than 17,000 other olim who came
last year to build a future in the Jewish homeland.
The Jewish partnership for life needs you. Give generously to your 1985
UJA/community campaign. We are Partners for Life.
If you have not paid any outstanding pledges, please do so today.
There is an urgent need for cash to aid the Jews of Ethiopia
and hundreds of thousands of other Jews in need worldwide.

Susan Miller's elegant marble
sculptures express her inter-
pretation of the Old Testament.
"Song of Songs" is the theme of
her latest exhibition to be shown
at the Lowe-Levinson Art
Gallery of Temple Beth-Shalom,
4144 Chase Avenue, Miami
Beach, Jan. 6 through Jan. 29.
With titles such as "Kisses of
his Mouth" Chapter 1: verse 2;
"Rise up my Love" Chapter 2:
verse 10; "In the Covert of the
Cliff" Chapter 2: verse 14, etc.,
she brings the illusion of life to
stone. If you have seen her
previous series with JOB repre-
sented by "lips" struggling from
a dark whirlpool, Jonah em-
bedded in a "whale" of rectangles
or Naomi And Ruth as fluid
almost interviewed figures, you
realize her works capture the
emotion of the Holy Book.
Mrs. Miller credits Leah Stone.
a local scholar, with whom she
studied in Cleveland with her
love for and awe of the Old Testa-
ment. In Germany, before World
War. her paternal grandmother
founded the equivalent of our
Hadassah. As she matured. Mrs.
Miller's love and pride in Juda-
ism involved her in fund-raising
for Federation and as a life
member of Hadassah.
This multi-media artist
acting, ballet, drawing and paint-
ing might have chosen a thea-
trical career, after Ohio State, if
she hadn't met one of the hand-
somest men on campus and
married him. Living in the Lake
section of Hollywood, Dr. Jack
Miller, an internist and cardio-
logist, and Susan are in the
"empty-nest" stage, now that
son. Dale, has joined his sister,
Myra, at out-of-town colleges.
Susan's studies were part-time
while bringing up the children.
First, to get a fine arts degree.
Then, she apprenticed to a
general contractor to learn how to
use and maintain the heavy
equipment needed to handle her
stone. Her studio, in the ware-
house section of town, has chains
and pulleys hanging from the
celing. Power tools, air compres-
sors, heavy wiring and large
chunks of stone complete the
decor. She learned how to mani-
pulate the toxic resins she uses in
some of her works at a fiberglass-
boat manufacturer, developing
her own processes.
To learn about stone, she went
to the source Pietrasanta,
Italy. It's near Carrara, at the
foot of the mountain where
Michelangelo cut the stone for
David. She sculpts in marble,
bronze and fiber-soaked resins.
Susan in workclothes is not the
elegant lady you'll meet at the
luncheon. A bandana covers her
hair, a protective mask is over
nose and mouth, gloves and
goggles complete the ensemble.
Her blue jeans and shirt is
covered with an ever-swirling
film of marble dust.
At the B'Not Shalom Lun-
cheon that the Women's Division
of the Jewish Federation of South

'Image of the Jewish woman1
"The only way to overcome the
stereotype is to be ourselves"
was the conclusion reached by
one guest at "The Image of the
lewish Woman Myth and
Reality," held Nov. 27 at Temple
Sinai in Hollywood. The program
was sponsored by Twin County
Council Bnai B'rith Women and
coordinated by President Randee
Approximately 90 women
representing several Jewish
women's organizations, temple
sisterhoods and other B'nai
B'rith Women councils parti-
cipated. The Jewish Mother and
Jewish American Princess were
listened to, eliciting anger from
some who felt the stereotypes
were unfair and greatly exag-
gerated. However, one person
found "there is p kernal of truth
in all the jokes," labeling them
verbal caricatures.''
When asked how she would feel
hearing these jokes in a non-
Jewish group, Nancy Brizel, Past
President of Women's Division,
Jewish Federation of S. Broward,
responded, "I would have died!"
Judge Patti Englander felt she
must "show them it wasn't really
so." Harriet Horwitz, Interna-
tional Vice President of B'nai
B'rith Women, sees today's
Jewish mother as a "modem
working woman" who has little
time for the smothering of the
stereotype. Psychologist Dr.
Dodie Weinstein completed the
Several guests related personal
experiences of negative stereo-
typing in the non-Jewish work-
place, suggesting that Jewish
women "have to be more than
competent, we have to be one
At the conclusion of the even-
ing, guests were asked to
complete the sentence, "A Jewish
woman is ." and listed such
characteristics as "caring," "in-
volved," and "concerned about
her family and her community."
A young woman who had con-
verted to Judaism summed up
her feeling beautifully, "Through
everything we picked ourselves
up, dusted ourselves off, and
keep going. I am proud to say I
am a Jewish woman."
A Woman's Perspective
Every November, the Council
of Jewish Federations holds its
General Assembly in a major city
in North America. This year,
Toronto, Canada played host to
3,000 Jews from over 200 Feder-
ations. Usually South Broward is
represented by a large group of
lay leaders and professionals,
rabbis and young leadership
award winners, couples and
individuals. We usually study the
huge potpourri of workshops,
forums, plenaries, and lectures
and decide who should go where
so we can cover as much as
possible. Then we would meet
before dinner to share our ex-
periences each day in an at-
mosphere of "ruach" and
This year the General
Assembly took place just after
the tragedy that befell our Exec-
utive Director, Sumner Kaye and
his family the death of their
son. Jeff. Most of our leadership
cancelled. Because of specific
responsibilites I had, it was
impossible for me to cancel. So
with a heavy heart, I went from
the funeral to the airport and on
to Toronto and immediately to
the Women's Division opening
Plenary. Women's Division holds
its programming the day
preceding the official opening of
the General Assembly.
Rather than tell you about
individual workshops or speakers
all of which were superb I
would like to tell of the essence,
the uniqueness of a general
assembly. It is the closest thing
to being in Israel that one can
imagine, 3,000 Jews flowing in
and out of the Sheraton Center.
In every time slot there are ten
activities to choose from with the
creme de la creme of Jewish
minds to instruct, facilitate and
debate. Among the dignitaries
addressing this year's assembly
were Yitzhak Navon, Henry
Kissinger and Chaim Potok. The
opening plenary was disrupted
by a group of student activists

protesting the plight of
Ethiopian Jewry. Their methods
were rowdy, and they
manipulated the press, but I was
so happy to see a new generation
of young Jewish activists who
cared so deeply about oppressed
Jews. It is this spirit that has
been the key to our survival.
And speaking of caring, there
was not an hour that went by
that someone from some corner of
the United States did not come
up and extend sympathies to
Sumner and Dina through me.
For me, it was not the ordinary
business-as-usual general
assembly. It was almost sur-
realistic in many respects. But it
was extraordinary in that it gave
me the strength and the impetus
to continue to work in our Feder-
ation: Jews caring about Jews,
from generation to generation,
from strength to strength.
The general assembly is in
Washington, D.C. next
November. I hope you will all be
with me to share in this unique

Maoz Tzur,
Chanukah hymn
Hanuka is a holiday of traditions traditional foods
are served, games played, and songs sung. The best-
known Hanuka song is, "Maoz Tzur," also known as
Rock of Ages."
The hymn was composed for Hanuka in the 13th
century by Mordecai ben Isaach Halevy, who wove his
name in acrostic form in the initial letters of the five
stanzas of the poem. Its melody has been a tradition
among Western Jewry since the 16th century, and is
also popular among Jews of Eastern Europe and
modern Israel.
The opening bars of the melody were adapted by
theologian Martin Luther for the opening of his church
chorale, "Nun freut euch, lieben Christen g'mein" (Now
Rejoice All You Dear Christians Together).
Johann Sebastian Bach wrote a four-part setting of
the same chorale.
The tune was also adopted and printed for the first
time in London (1815) by Isaac Nathan to the poem
"On Jordan's Banks" from Lord Byron's Hebrew
Another well-known melody associated with "Maoz
Tzur" is one set by Benedetto Marcello, (1686-1739),
and sung in the 17th and 18th centuries by Jews of
German origin who settled in Italy.
The earlier so-called traditional "Maoz Tzur" found
its way into the daily and supplementary prayers
recited during Hanuka.
This year when you sing "Maoz Tzur" with your
families remember that the song has a rich and varied

Negev becoming
produce basket of Europe
Negev, Israel's arid desert in the
south, is not only blooming but is
also increasingly becoming the
fruit and vegetable basket of
Israel and Europe. In fact, an
Israel expert suggests, the Negev
can turn into a major source of
vegetables and fruit export not
only for Europe but for the
United States as well.
"We have achieved major suc-
cess in developing arid land and
semi-arid land," Menachem Perl-
mutter, the engineer chiefly re-
sponsible over the past 30 years
for bringing Israel's desert to
bloom, said Perlmutter, whose
title is "The Jewish Agency's
Chief Engineer for the Negev,"
said that new, scientific methods
are responsible for Israel's
success story in the Negev.
According to Perlmutter, who
is in the United States on a five-
week lecture tour under the spon-
sorship of the United Jewish
Appeal, Israeli scientists
developed modern methods that
helped turn the Negev's sand into
land. This was possible, he said,
mainly by the Israeli invention of
drip irrigation.
"With drip irrigation we are
able to water the Negev's sands
with brackish water, he ex-
plained, noting that the ability to
use brackish water, which is
available more easily in the
Negev, saves the need to use the
expensive fresh water that is
brought to the desert from over
100 miles away, in the north of
In addition, Perlmutter con-
tinued, "we use the hot sun of the
desert .which for generations was
considered a curse, for growing
summer crops in the winter
without additional energy and
artificial heating." The curse of
brackish water and scorching sun
has become a blessing.
"In the Negev and the Arava
(the region between the Dead Sea
and Eilat) we are growing all
kinds of fruit and vegetable, in-
cluding green-peppers, tomatoes,
cucumbers, dates, melons, egg-
plants, peanuts and more," Perl-
mutter said. He contended that,
in fact, Israel achieved records in
growing cotton and peanuts.
He noted that while fanners in
Arizona grow 1,200 kilos of
cotton per acre. Israeli farmers in
the Negev grow twice as much,
about 2,400 kilos per acre. In
Georgia, accordng to Perlmutter,
farmers grow 1,120 kilos of pea-
nuts per acre, while in the Negev
the yield is 2,600 kilos per acre.
"Israel sets the best example
on how to change the wasteland
to life-supporting land," he said.
He said that today there are 189
agricultural settlements in the
In 1968, Perlmutter pointed
out, a United Nations committee
of agricultural experts visited
Israel and concluded that it
would take 25 years until Israel
would be able to double its agri-
cultural production. "Well, we
did a little better," Perlmutter
said with a smile. "We increased
the production twelve-fold."
Perlmutter, who resides in
Beersheba in the Negev, said that
Israel's experience in increasing
its food supply might be success-
fully applied, on a wider scale, in
famine stricken Africa. "We have
proven that the difference bet-
ween the possible and the impos-
sible is that the latter takes just a
little more time," Perlmutter

a labyrinth of castles, or crystal

amber skies forshadowed the
blazing winds of the next day. At
night the strong wind howled in
the chimney like a pack of hungry
wolves. Later on, during my two

layering it with cranberries and
cherry leaves in barrels, which
with our young appetites we
devoured in a feast of sourkraut
and potatoes.

Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus.
According to the Rabbi, "the
evening annually attracts Jews
from all walks of life many
who never even attend a
Synagogue service. The feeling of
unity generated at the Festival is
unique a celebration of the
soul that is ignited with the
beautiful spirit of the holiday."
The holiday of chanukah
begins this year on Tuesday, Dec.
18, at nightfall. It culminates the
evening of Wednesday, Dec. 26.
The eight-day holiday com-
memorates the victory of the out-
numbered Jewish people against
the heavily favored Assyrian
armies. It also marked the return
and restoration of the Boly
Temple in Jerusalem to the Jews,
after being defiled by the enemy.
The South Florida Chanukah
Festival has become Florida's
largest public celebration of
Chanukah. This year it is jointly
sponsored by Chabad of South
Broward, Congregation Levi
Yitzchok-Lubavitch, and Free
Bebrew for Juniors. For further
information about the Festival
and-or to receive a free detailed
brochure on the history, laws and
customs of Chanukah, please

skating on the river Szczara. In
the evenings, we used to do our
homework by the stove, to keep
warm. The white, tiled stove was
situated in the middle of the
house, so that each side of it
warmed a room. My sisters used
to spend the long winter nights
reading, studying the Bible. My
Bebrew teacher, Jankel, used to
be the authority in their Bible
discussions. Besides, he courted
my sister Benya, with whom he
liked to play chess.
Mother, after a day's work in
our grain mill, sometimes suc-
cumbed to the local life style,
finding relaxation by sitting at
the oven plucking the geese
feathers for the down quilts and
pillows she was preparing as
dowries for us girls. Sometimes,
we kids pitched in too. and one of
us used to read aloud the melo-
dramatic romance novellas, like
"Rebecca" which had just be-
came popular. We romanticized
about the places and people,
vicariously experiencing their
happy and sad situations helping
to make the long winter bearable.
Chanukah was a festive
season. When we lit the
Chanukah candles we received
"Chanukah gelt" and with
palpitating hearts we used to run
to our friends to use the shiny
pennies for the Chanukah games.
Game-playing generally frowned
upon in the Jewish community
because its wastes time better
spend studying the Torah, was
allowed during the Chanukah
celebration. The most popular
game was the dreidl, which is
spun for stakes of some kind.
There is a Bebrew letter on each
of the four sides, nun, gimmel,
heh. shin. These letters are inter-
preted as the initials of the words
in the Bebrew phrase, Nes Gadol
haya sham, a great miracle hap-
pened there. I used to spin the
"dreidl" inwardly praying
gimmel. take it all.
On Saturday night our house
was decorated with the
Chanukah parphenalia and my
older sisters held their annual
Chanukah party at which they
raised money for Israel. They
belonged to the Revisionist
organization, disciples of
Jabolynsky. At the party the
traditional latkes were served but
first they were auctioned off, to
the highest bidder.
As the party went on, Yentle
with her beautiful soprano voice
directed the singing. She sang
with so much feeling, so vibrant
that the window panes used to
rattle. My sister Daila sang
beautifully, but her voice was
soft like a violin. Very often
travelling speakers used to grace
the party.
I remember the last Chanukah
before the Bolocaust, I delivered
a speech in Bebrew comparing \
the Maccabees with the modem
day hero, Trumpeldor, who was
killed in Tel Chai. Though, I
forgot my Bebrew, I still
remember the beginning. "Never
mind, it is good to die for our
country, Israel."
Today I light the Chanukah
candles with sad eyes, knocked
down under the burden of the
many memories. Gone is my
childhood, and gone is the stetl.
My family is in the deserted mass
grave, killed by the Nazis.
Martyrs, not heroes. No miracle
of deliverance happened.
Deborah Sufrin is the author of

R slice of lochs.
Was it really the game of golf that tempted Jewish immigrants to call
Scotland their home? Was it the taunting call of the little white hall? The
lure of those infernal sand traps? fcrhaps some strange appeal in the
mc>nstrtius-ness of the lochs? And just what accounts ft* todayfc weekly
pilgrimage to the country cluh txitside Glasgow?
One thing we can account for. After an invigorating day chasing
divots those frazzled duffers are apt to require a neat shot of Sa*ch

whiskies its native country has to offer. That makes ft>r a scotch that is

New Senate leadership should please Jewish community
Israel Today
Jewish community is generally
delighted with the results of the
reshuffle in key Senate leadership
positions. "The selection of
Kansan Robert Dole as majority
leader and the ascendency of
Indiana's Richard Lugar to the
chairmanship of the crucial
Foreign Relations Committee
was the best possible option
available," one top Washington
insider said. "We came out
smelling like a rose," responded
yet another Jewish leader.
Both Dole and Lugar have
amassed generally favorable
records on Israel related issues.
They have consistently sup-
ported foreign aid in general and
increases in aid to Israel above
Administration requests. Dole,
as chairman of the Finance Com-
mittee, was the point man for the
Free Trade Bill in the Senate.
Sen. Bob Packwood, who will
assume chairmanship of the
Finance Committee, is also a
pragmatic centrist who became a
"hero" to the Jewish community
when he led the fight against the
Administration on the sale of
AWACs to Saudi Arabia.
The new Senate leadership are
considered moderate conserva-
tive who will not dance blindly to
the White House tune but in-
stead will freelance and call their
own shots. Several Senate
watchers said that the Repub-
lican Party's choices reflected an
attempt to shed its image as an
ally of the extreme right wing
which can only be good news for
the Jews. Dole, for example, has
been unenthusiastic about the
Reagan effort to push issues like
abortion and school prayer.
Dole is also considered one of
the Senate's most skillful legis-
lators and accomplished speakers
with a flair for pragmatism and
compromise. The Senate
Majority leader wields great
power. He sets the Senate
Agenda, decides what bills come
to the floor and negotiates com-
promises with House Democrats.
In addition, he represents the
Senate to the White House, the
media and the public. On Meet
the Press, Dole said that the
choice of the new Senate leader-
ship was "a declaration of inde-
pendence from the White
House." In addition, Doie indi-
cated that the 22 Republican
Senate seats at stake in 1966
could be more important than
individual programs of the Presi-
dent. This could be comforting to
friends of Israel who were appre-
hensive about the Mideast plans
of a second term President who
didn't have to concern himself
with the "Jewish vote."
Dr. Marshall Breger, Special
Assistant to the President, said
that Reagan is satisfied with the
new Senate leadership. "He's
worked well with them in the past
and feels confident that he will
work well with them in the
future." And Breger reiterated
the Jewish community's positive
response to the key leaders, all of
whom have shown their "sensi-
tivity to Jewish concerns and
their commitment to the security
of the Staf**f Israel."
However, there are a few who
question Lugar's independence
from the President. Ray Garmel,
Midwest Jewish activist and
columnist, believes that Lugar is
sincere in his statements of,
support for Israel but that his
political plans could overshadow
all other considerations. Garmel
said that Lugar, who was once
called "Nixon's favorite Mayor"
is clever, pragmatic and am-
bitious. "He wants to be Vice
President or President one day,
and I believe he will wholeheartly
support the Reagan Peace Plan
which is the centerpiece of the
President's Middle East foreign
policy." Garmel is concerned that
the Reagan Peace Plan, which
calls for an undivided Jerusalem
but leaves its status in doubt and
which will preclude Israel from
maintaining physical control over
Judea and Samaria, will become a
tradeoff for increased financial
aid to Israel in the second Reagan
term. In that sense, Garmel
views "aid to Israel as a noose
around her neck."
But Garmel's views are dis-
puted by Indianapolis business-
man and national Jewish leader.
Hart Hasten, who serves as
President of Herut Zionists of
America. Hasten said "I have
discussed the Reagan Peace Plan
with Lugar and he is well attuned
to the precarious problems in the
Middle East. He doesn't always
agree with the President on all
issues, and I am planning to per-
sonally escort him on his first trip
to Israel this Spring which will be
important to him as Chairman of
the Foreign Relations Commit-
tee. In the past he has supported
sales of weaponry to "moderate
Arab" states because he believed
that the security of Israel was not
threatened." Hasten added,
"Lugar is a close friend of mine
and immediately after his selec-
tion, he invited himself to my
home for dinner. I assure you this
is the best thing that could have
happened for Israel. Lugar is a
good Senator, a Rhodes Scholar
and generally on Israel's side. He
has excellent relations with the
Jewish community and has been
actively involved in the Soviet
Jewry movement from the begin-
At the dinner meeting with
Jewish leaders in Indianapolis,
Sen. Lugar assured Hasten and
Gerald Kraft, International
President of B'nai B'rith that
"there will be substantial foreign
assistance to Israel during my (Shimon) Peres and a number a tenure." He said "I will probably others in terms of economic n.1
work closely with Prime Minister form." '

Rabbi helps ancient city come to life
About ten years ago, Zvi Miller
was 21 and trying to "find him-
self." But to find, he had to go
places to look and in 1973, his
destination was Israel.
"When I got off the plane, I
immediately felt like this was my
home," he recalled. And within a
few years. Israel did in fact be-
come his permanent home.
Now Rabbi Zvi Miller, the
Atlantic City native encourages
others make aliyah like himself.
He has become involved with the
Diaspora Yeshiva, where he was
ordained in 1981, which is an
unusual institution in that it
employs modem techniques to
display the relevancy of Torah
values in today's world.
Their biggest project is the
construction of a settlement that
looks out over the Dead Sea in
the Judean Hills the West
Bank of Jerusalem called
Yishuv Mazad. For two
thousands years the land
remained barren after King
David's mighty fortress was
abandoned. But here is where the
Yeshiva'a community this past
summer began to build a modern
community imbued with the
spirituality and joy of ancient
"We are dedicated to the sav-
ing of the Jewish people," says
Rabbi Miller, whose parents
Irving and Elaine Miller reside in
Hollywood. In addition, his wife
Melody's parents Saul and Roz
Borenstein also live in Holly-
"Our three goals are influenc-
ing people to be aware of Jewish
study, that Jews should live in
Israel, and to provide a place for
them to live," he said.
In this vein, the Yeshiva is
offering free housing for anyone
who wants to join the com-
munity. Already, there are one
hundred families who are part of
the settlement, and there are
plans for the community to
sustain 250 private homes for an
equivalent number of families
Most of the families are
American, Miller said, and
English is spoken almost exclu-

last three columns were in
m of a three-part series
Bolsheviks and Men-
I wrote about the
s of the Bolsheviks-Com-
their leaders, and the
Mensheviks and their leaders. I
also told about how all this af-
fected my life in Simferopol and
my relationship with comrade
Nikolai Matveyevich Petrov.
In January 1922, about
quitting time, Comrade Petrov
called me into his office. With
him was his assistant Isaac
Moyseyevich Brodsky.
It is now more than 62 years
since that meeting, but his words
are indelibly impressed on my
mind and conscience and I can
never forget them.
He called me Abrasha,
something he had never done
before during business hours. I
knew that this had a special
significance. He began by telling
me that he and Isaac had been
active in the Menshevik-anti-
Communist Party ever since the
split of the Russian Socialist
Party in 1912. After the ab-
dication of the Czar in 1917 they
joined the Communist Party. On
November 7, 1917 when the Com-
munists dissolved the Consti-
tutional Convention being held in
Leningrad and seized power by
force, they were members in good
standing of the Communist
THEY DECIDED not to expose
their membership in the Men-
shevik Party, remain in Russia
and continue to work secretly as
members of the Mensheviks.
All leaders and known
members of the opposition
parties had to escape the country.
Their leaders, L. Martov, a Jew
who was a member of the Bund in
Vilna encouraged them to stay
and try to get into the high
ranking group of the Commnist
Party that began to set up and
control the government of the
He further said that for the last
three years he and Isaac used
their positions of trust in order to
infiltrate the unions of workers.
Their purpose was to distribute
illegal literature published in
exile and to educate those not
belonging to the Communist
Party by telling the truth about
the so-called "benevolent dic-
tatorship of the proletariat."
"Because you are in a perfect
position to help us we want you
to join with us in our secret anti-
Communist efforts."
I was stunned, frightened and
did not know what to do or say.
However, I managed to ask,
"When do I have to give you my
answer?" Petrov replied,
"Immediately. We hope you will
say yes, but if your answer will be
no, Isaac and I are certain that
you will not betray us."
HAPPEN TO ME if I said no, I
decided to join them.
Petrov warned me to be very
careful. I was now an official
member of a secret cell working
on behalf of the Mensheviks. He
further warned me not to discuss
it with anyone including other
members of the cell and not to
show it in my talk and behavior
even to my sister. All our
discussion and plans were to be
left to the secret meetings of the
cell. Our meetings were held in an

abandoned Tatar Mosque in the
old part of the city.
During the next four months in
addition to my regular office
duties I surreptitiously distri-
buted the illegal newspaper
published abroad, other material
and secret messages to the
members of the cell working in
our establishment.
During a meeting in May we
were joined by a new member of
the cell who worked elsewhere.
As usual one member of the cell
went outside to watch out for the
Militia and Secret Police. Shortly
thereaftrer we heard the signal
that meant we were raided. As
prearranged, I, with Petrov's
help, threw all papers, in-
criminating evidence, into the
burning open oven, and we
assumed our positions at the
tables playing chess and
SECRET POLICE accompanied
by local officers ran immediately
to the oven but they were too |
late. Only ashes remained.
We were all placed under
arrest, taken to the police station
and questioned individually.
Whe I was questioned I
pleaded ignorance about Men-
sheviks, Martov and secret plans.
When I was asked why we were
in the Mosque I answered that it
was a social gathering. It was
well known that Nikolai Mat-
veyevich and I were friends. I
was there to play chess with him.
Since they found nothing on me I
ws released before midnight.
When I came in to work the
next morning I found that with
the exception of Petrov and
Brodsky all cell members were in
and working. One of the senior
department heads at a brief staff
meeting announced that he would
be in charge during the short
time that Petrov and Brodsky
will be absent. However one of
the cell members whispered to me
that Petrov and Brodsky were
being exiled to Siberia the very
next day.
I received permission from the
local police to go to the station to
bid farewell to Petrov. When I
got there I spotted him looking
out of the train window. There
was a guard in back of him. I was
allowed to speak to him for a
minute. I asked him to write to
me. He nodded his head and said,
"Don't worry Abrasha, you and I
will see each other in the near
heard from him. I did not know
what happened to him until
about a year after I came to the
United States in October 1923.
Towards the end of 1924 as I was
looking through a Moscow
newspaper a small paragraph on
an inside page caught my eye. It
stated that Nikolai Matveyevich
Petrov was shot and killed while
trying to escape from the town in
Siberia where he had been living
in exile.
I was anxious to get out of
Simferopol as soon as possible.
My leaving for Priluki in the
Ukraine did not seem unusual or
hurried because on the day of the
raid we received a letter from
Priluki that the papers from
America were on the way and
that I should come back imme-
Three days later I was at the
station waiting for my train. My
sister and brother-in-law were
seeing me off. She had packed
enough food for my trip and I had
enough money to get home. My
brother-in-law kept asking me to
see to it that when we get to
America we should try and send
for them as soon as possible. He
saw no future for them either in
the Crimea or anywhere else in
the Soviet Union. It was then
that my sister told me she was
pregnant. The train arrived, we
said our last tearful farewells. I
got on the train, waved at them,
and with a sigh of relief said to
myself, "Now I am really on my
way home."

Saving the vulture
Tel Aviv University Zoologists
are planning an unusual
triangular love match in an effort
to preserve a nearly extinct bird
species, the lappet-faced vulture
of Israel's Negev. Desert. If the
experiment succeds, it will
produce the first lappet-faced
vulture conceived and born in
The prospective parents are a
33 year old female named Rosa,
and a nine year old male, both
members of a breeding group at
the Canadian Center for Eco-
logical Zoology on TAU's
campus. Completing the triangle
is zookeeper Ya'acov Segal,
whose presence will be essential
to the experiment. Segal cared for
Rosa when she was brought to
the zoo as a nestling, and she
believes he is her mate; she has
laid eggs for him-infertile eggs, of
course. The Center's academic
supervisor, Prof. Heinrich
Mendelssohn, hopes that Segal
and the male vulture together
will induce Rosa to produce a
Prof. Mendelssohn, the first
dean of the George S. Wise
Faculty of Life Sciences and an
internationally known zoologist
and conservationist, has been
successful in breeding a number
of other species including Egyp-
tian and griffon vultures, white-
tailed sea eagles, and crested
ibids. The aim of each breeding
program is to produce enough
birds so that they can be released
and re-establish in the wild. With
its powerful, curved bill; sharp
claws; and nine-foot wingspan,
the lappet-faced vulture-named
for the distinctive skin folds
(lappets) on its neck-was once a
familiar sight in Israel's Arava
Valley. Today only two or three
are to be found there.
Prof. Mendelssohn first saw
Rosa in 1945, while on an illegal
expedition in the Negev. British
Mandate regulations forbade
Jews to travel in desert areas, so
the Professor and his companions
including Israel's present Prime
Minister Shimon Peres, ended
their tour in jail. At the time,
Prof. Mendelssohn counted 25 to
30 pairs of lappet-faced vultures
in the Arava. After 1948,
however, a number of environ-
mental changes combined to
diminish the vulture population.
Many young birds died from
eating poisoned mice-resulting
from the increased use of nesti-
cides. Many gazelles were hunted
down by soldiers stationed in the
Negev, thus eliminating an
important food source. And
increasing numbers of tourists,
attracted by the vulture's nests
began to disturb the birds.
Frightened by the approach of
humans nesting vultures would
leave their eggs to overheat and
die in the desert sun. By 1976,
there were only six nesting pairs
to be found.
That year, Israel's Nature
Reserves Authority began to
supply food to the birds, and
later the World Wildlife Fund
contributed $20,000 to equip a
feeding station.'

What's Short Distance calling? With Southern Bell, it's simply
a call of 50 miles or so. And. in Florida, a 5-minute Southern Bell
call on weekdays between 8 am. and 5 p.m. dialed direct without
the operator, costs no more than $1.52 And. you can save 50% by
using Short Distance on weekends until 5 p.m Sunday
That's Short Distance calling. This holiday season every
good Santa should take advantage of it.
