Israelis, and the anguished
outcry of the families and
friends of the IDF fallen,
demanding a rapid, if not
immediate, withdrawal
from the bloodbath in
Lebanon. The soul of Israel
is in agony.
The existential anguish
of the Israeli people as a
whole was perhaps best
expressed by the father of
IDF Staff Sgt. Ephraim
Michael, 28, of Holom, who
was one of the 12 soldiers
killed near Metullah. In a
quiet, almost hushed voice,
the father said at the
gravesite of his son, "This
is the tragedy of our
generation, that the fathers
must say Kaddish for their
This generational
tragedy was also described
in a subdued and forceful
tone by Defense Minister
Yitzhak Rabin. Talking to
80 participants in the
United Jewish Appeal's
Ambassadors' Mission, he
said, regarding the war in
"There is no hope and no
one should say that the
goal is total elimination of
terrorism. It's unat-
tainable. Whoever aspires
to the unattainable, and
whoever believes that by a
long good war you can
finish terrorism forever
asks for diasppointment,
frustration, because
whenever you try to reach
the unattainable it must
lead you to frustration."
Once the war in Lebanon
"was extended beyond the
peace in Galilee limited
goals to the far-reaching
goals a new government
in Lebanon, peace, no
terrorists will remain in
Lebanon, the Syrian army
will be out whoever set
these goals practically
aspired to the unat-
tainable," Rabin declared.
Then, in a voice filled
with emotion, the Defense
Minister stated that
Israel's only goal of Israel
in Lebanon: no more to be
the policeman of Lebanon;
no more to be the defenders
of the Christians, of the
Druzes and who knows
"No one has sent for us
to be the policeman of this
country. No one have given
us the right to decide who
will be President there. One
should learn from history,
that whoever set his foot in
Lebanon sunk in the
Lebanese mud We want
to be out of Lebanon .
and to end illusions about
the capability of Israel by
one good long war to finish
terrorism." Rabin did not
identify the architects of
the illusions, but everyone
in the audience knew.
Premier Shimon Peres,
expounding on the same
theme, said at the farewell
dinner for 270 participants
in the combined
Ambassadors' Mission, the
UJA Young Leadership
and the Southeast Region,

mind to remain in Lebanon,

JCC parlor meeting at Malamuds raises $50,000
The second community
parlor meeting to raise
funds for the David
Posnack Jewish Com-
munity Center, held April 1
at the home of Janet and
Jack Malamud, brought in
$50,000 in new pledges.
Participants listened to
descriptions of what South
Broward's first full-service
JCC will look like. Planned
are sports facilities in-
cluding a gymnasium,
tennis and racketball
courts, swimming pool,
running track, and lake.
Jewish cultural activities
will also be well ac-
comodated at the new
Center, with gathering and
theatre space in the
Malamud Auditorium.
Jewish agencies will also
be housed at this central
address for local Jewry,
including the Jewish
Family Service, senior and
child day care services, and
a western office of the
Jewish Federation of South
The Center will be
located on a 29 acre site in
Da vie, near University
Drive and Stirling Road.
At the meeting, hosts
Jack and Janet Malamud
spoke individually with
guests about the Jewish
center they had just wit-
nessed in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Called Hebraica, it is a
Jewish social, sports,
cultural and religious
center for its 24,000
The Malamuds said they
were inspired to see such a
place, which houses a
kosher restaurant, places
for study, a night club, and
is used for weddings, Bar
Mitzvahs, and High
Holiday services. They said
they saw Brazilian Jews
training for the Maccabean
Games in the building's
two huge gymnasiums.
He likened Hebraica to
the Posnack JCC in the
manner that he hoped our
new center would become
the place where all Jews in
the community would come
to for enjoyment and
cultural education.
Three more parlor
meetings have been set. On
April 18, Harry and Jackie
Rosen will open their
Miramar home at 7:30 p jn.
then, on April 23, Mark and
Mike Fried will host a
meeting at 7:30 p.m.,

According to the WJC, seven

by Hungarian authorities said
the stamps would "depict the

Part I: Political realities
Continued from Page 1
Lebanon land; never did we
intend to play a role in
Lebanese politics While
the Shiites are doing the
most to terrorize our with-
drawal, the Shiites are not
our enemies. Neither the
Shiites nor the Sunnites.
nor the Druze nor the
Christians are our enemies.
We don't have enemies as
people. We don't have
collective enemies and we
are not going to appoint
any enemies in our neigh-
borhood or elsewhere. Our
enemies were and remain a
state of belligerency, a
sentiment of hate, an
approach of prejudice."
For the average Israeli
the Shiites seem even more
relentless in their hatred of
Israel than did the PLO
whom many consider now
to be pussycats by com-
parison. What is most
alarming about the Shiites
is their willingness to die
for the sake of Allah and for
the chance to meet him
sooner than naturally
The Shiites are im-
previous to Israel's threats
of reprisals and its "iron
fist" policy. The Shiites say
there is nothing Israel can
do to them that hans't
already been done to them
by the Christians and the
PLO in Lebanon.
But beyond the
fanaticism of the Shiite
suicide teams, there is a
practical consideration. The
Shiites are in competition
with other groups Li
Lebanon to achieve a
leadership role as the
foremost and staunchest
defenders of their country
against the Israeli "in-
vaders." Their political
stock increases each time
they kill or maim an Israeli
soldier. It helps them attain
credibility and moral and
stature as
real "freedom
against the IDF and the
car-bombings of Israeli
troops is generating
anxiety among many in
Israel that Shiite militancy,
intransigence and
fanaticism will set an
example for West Bank
extremists and inspire the
development of an
organized resistance
movement against both the
Israeli military and the
Jewish settlers there.
Most Israelis have
developed defense
mechanisms to deal with
the tragedy of the Lebanese
war. In the almost three
years since the war started,
Israelis have learned to
accept death as a way of
life. It isn't that Israelis
have become indifferent or
callous to the events
around them, just that they
are developing ways to
inure themselves against
events which were thrust
upon them and over which
they have no control. It
isn't that Israelis are
developing ways to inure
themselves against events
which were thrust upon
them and over which they
have no control.
They sublimate their
anger, bewilderment,
anxiety and frustration by
such activities as buying
sprees a psychological
blanket against thoughts of
death. Aside from the
families involved, the
average Israeli reads the
daily newspapers and
listens to the hourly Kol
Israel radio broadcasts
about events in Lebanon
with almost stoical
resignation. A day after the
March 10 Metullah
tragedy, throngs of Israelis
walked leisurely through
the streets of Jerusalem
and Tel Aviv, stopping at
their favorite cafes on
Dizengoff or Ben Yehuda
Street to sip coffee and
engage in casual banter.
But the fear of the
ongoing events in Lebanon
and the anxiety of being
called for "miluim" in
Lebanon emerges almost in
passing, but pervasively, in
off-handed almost
parenthetical remarks.
Many are frightened of
serving in Lebanon
probably the first time
since the War of
Independence that fear of
fighting in a war is being
expressed because many
do not see the war in
Lebanon as a war of
Many say they would
gladly fight to defend
Samaria and Judaea, even
those who feel that Israel
should return the territory.
"But Lebanon is not our
country. Why should we die
for it?" many ask.
The people of Israel want
peace, not only so that lives
can be saved but also so
that they can return to a
normal, constructive and
productive existence. Talk
of peace by the Egyptians,
by the Jordanians by
whomsoever generates

Rirt II: Israel's economy
Friday, April 12, 1986
Volume 16

Jewish Telegraph Agency
Israel's economy is an equal
opportunity victimizer. All
segments of the population
workers and businessmen,
moshavim and kibbutzim, and
the young and the old, especially
those living on pensions and
fixed incomes are adversely
People are bewildered not only
by the devaluation of the Shekel
but by its daily fluctuation. In a
period of two weeks this month,
the Shekel went from 771 to the
Dollar to 792. No one knows from
one day to the next what the
prices of commodities will be
except that it will in all
probability be higher.
Every morning and every
afternoon people line up in front
of banks to get the latest Shekel
readings. It's unnerving for
Israeli consumers but a paradise
for tourists. Merchants and
tourists are both armed with
pocket calculators to translate
prices of goods into the tourists'
home currency. Many shops and
hotels will offer a 10 percent
discount and elimination of the
15 percent value added tax if the
consumer pays in foreign
Dollars are being horded by
Israelis and kept in safe places in
the home or in bank safe deposit
boxes. A case in point: some safe
deposit boxes were recently
broken into in a Jerusalem bank
and the owners declined to come
forward to identify the contents.
The assumption was that the
boxes contained undeclared
To cushion the debilitating
effect of the Shekel devaluation
and fluctuation, Israelis have
developed bleak jokes. One is:
Israel no longer needs the law of
gravity. It's been replaced by the
law of the Shekel. Everything
falls within its vicinity. Another
joke: If the shaky position of the
Shekel continues, it is going to be
renamed the Shokel. And, a
variation of an oldie but a goodie:
In America, money talks. In
Israel, all the Shekel says is
The economic "balagan" (total
Chaos) has been attributed to the
peace with Egypt, which cost
Israel at least $5 billion, not
including the oil lost in the Sinai;
the war in Lebanon at an
estimated cost of $3.5 billion;
defense outlays; repayment of
foreign debts, and a general
mismanagement of the economy
over a period of years.
Israelis tend to react to these
explanations very much like the
poor Jews in the ahtetl who had
become accustomed to receive a
weekly stipend of five groshen
from a local wealthy Jew. One
week the stipend was reduced to
two groshen. "Why?" asked the
poor Jew. "Because I had a bad
week," the wealthy one
responded. "You had a bad week,
so I have to suffer," the poor Jew
But jokes aside, the economy
with unbridled inflation at 800
percent and seven percent
unemployment at this time
next to the war in Lebanon, is an
explosive issue for the govern-
ment. In fact, when Premier
Shimon Peres and Defense
Minister Yitzhak Rabin ad-
dressed meetings of the United
Jewish Appeal Ambassadors'
Mission they stressed this is the
most crucial task Israel has to
deal with.
In February, for example, the
consumer price index rose by 13.5
percent. It was the first double-
digit inflation figure since
November. Retail prices in
January had climbed by 5.3
percent. The Histadrut is seeking
a cost of living increment of
about 14 percent. But by the time
this increment is implemented,
some 10 percent of it will have
been eroded.
One segment of the population
most seriously affected by the
economic turmoil are the old who
live on fixed incomes and pen-
sions. For these people, writes
D'vora Ben Shaul in The
Jerusalem Post, "life is a never-
ending straggle for survival. The
hand-to-mouth existence forced
upon this sector of the economy
deprives its members not only of
peace of mind but even of the
bask essentials of proper diet as
well as adequate heat in the
winter months For many of
these pensioners the dream of the
golden years has turned into a
nightmare of deprivation."
Some 300,000 people receive
old-age pensions from the
National Insurance Institute.
Half of them are living below the
Institute's official poverty line.
While about half of those
receiving old-age benefits from
the Institute have official sup-
plementary incomes in the form
of jobs, private pension funds
from their former jobs or taxable
dividends, "the other half eke out
a living on pensions of less than
$120 a month for a single person
and $190 for a couple," Ben Shaul
In several neighborhoods in
Jerusalem, some of the old people
gather quietly on the eve of the
Sabbath to receive some meat,
fish, fruits and vegetables from
the managers of the super-
markets. Their dignity doesn't
permit them to ask for food; they
stand by inconspicuously and
wait for the managers to motion
to them to pick out what they
Unemployment is on the rise.
Employment in industries
oriented toward the domestic
market has come to a near stand-
still. There are some jobs
available in research and
development and in export-
oriented industries. Gad Yaacobi,
minister of economics and
planning, said recently that this
trend is expected to continue. "I
have little faith that work
openings will be created soon in
any great number in any other
sector than export-oriented
industries," he stated.
In Haifa, for example, private
businesses, factories and shops
staged a one-day close-down
protest against increases in
municipal rates. A week earlier,
the City Council approved rate
increases of 600 to 900 percent
above last April's assessments.
Haifa's Chamber of Commerce
Secretory Arieh Mehoulal
charged that the increases, slated
to take effect next month, would
make the city a more expensive
place to live and to run a com-
mercial enterprise than
Jerusalem or Tel Aviv. He said
that some small and medium-
sized businesses would be paying
more in municipal rates next
month than in taxes.
The moshavim, which have
been suffering economic hard-
ships for some years, are facing
more problems. Hundreds of
Galilee moshavim members
blocked the road between Safad
and Moshav Meron and dumped
thousands of eggs on the high-
way on March 10. Police used
force to break up the demon-
stration which moshav
movement leaders said was part
of a campaign to force the
government to give aid to needy
The protestors, including
hundreds of moshav children,
chanted slogans, including,
"Bread and work" and "The
Katyushas have not made us
leave the northern border, but the
subsidies will." According to
Rahamim Yakuti, secretary of
the Galilee moshavim, changes in
recent years in the poultry in-
dustry, with the emphasis
turning from raising chickens for
meat to raising them as egg
producers, has caused serious
financial problems for the far-
There is now a surplus of 40
million eggs and there is no way
moshav farmers could raise
prices, he said. Subsidy money
has not been forwarded to the

some 25 moshavim are now in the
red by a total of $10 million, he
added. Other demonstrations are
being planned by moshavim

were high on the agendas of,

2,000 guests, many uninvited,

Post, wrote; "The two fathers

finding answers in religion.'
Zohar, who had been part of the
swinging Tel Aviv crowd in the
1960'8, turned to religion in the
mid-'70's and persuaded Em-
stein's wife to turn away from the
world of the Dizengoff cafes.

situation. "Not only is the
commitment the government
undertook for full employment
not being carried out, but nobody
has even been formed to create
employment or to prevent
unemployment," he wrote in a
letter to Premier Shimon Peres.
Coping with unemployment is
exhausting and frustrating. But
some jobless find ingenious and
inventive ways to deal with the
situation. In Jerusalem, two
women have founded the
Jerusalem Bartering Club where
members can swap their un-
wanted possessions for foods and
services they would otherwise
have to buy.
According to the co-founders of
the club, Rhoda Elovitz and
Theresa Terry, "In the begin-
ning, before Shekels, there was
bartering. Early man traded furs
for weapons and food. We feel the
Israeli economy has come full
circle and it's time again to
reinstitute this primitive, yet
efficient, system." The club, they
point out, was founded as a
mutual support group to help
those struggling to make ends
meet. i
Merchants are also affected by
the gyrations of the economy.

There was no understandable
verbal communications between
the two groups, but the
Ethiopian youngsters, with ever-
present smiles, extended their
hands in friendship and tacit
understanding. Their warmth
and their ebullience permeated
the air.
Time and again, Israeli of-
ficials involved in the absorption
of the Beta Yisrael pointed out
that despite their isolation and
living under conditions of the
most cruel experiences of
religious oppression,
assassination and discrimination
in Ethiopia, they had retained
their Jewishness and are
passionately committed to it.
"They are Jewish and remain
Jewish," Peres asserted.
The absorption process is
intricate and complex. The
Ethiopian Jews have come to a
country that is entering the 21st
century from a country that is, at
best, still in the 19th century.
They have to, as it were, break
out of a two-century time warp
and leap across both time and
To ease the transition and to
avoid frustration, disap-
pointments and social
asphyxiation, the newcomers
have been encouraged to retain
their tradition and culture.
"Retaining their tradition and
culture makes it easier and less
tension-provoking for them to
settle into their new society,"
said Chaim Arnon, head of the
Jewish Agency's aliya and ab-
sorption department.
It is also necessary, said Arnon
and Harry Rosen, secretary
general of the Jewish Agency and
secretary general of the UJA in
Israel, that they be given op-
portunities and encouraged to
express their social and cultural,
as well as their feeling of self-
sufficiency. This is part of the
dialectical process of their ab-
sorption and integration.
But there are challenges and
difficulties to the absorption
and integration of the Beta
Yisrael. Unlike immigrants from
the West who do not know
Hebrew but at least have
marketable job skills and
knowledge of the practical every-
day world, the Ethiopians have

The process is nerve-wracking
and time consuming. But the
dividend comes when a new
Ethiopian immigrant begins to
speak Hebrew for the first time.
The joy is immeasurable on the
parts of both the Ethiopian and
the Israeli teacher. Whatever
shyness and inhibitations the
Ethiopians had, suddenly
evaporates. They have become
Israelis and they are really at
The absorption of Ethiopian
Jews also poses other rather
unique problems. "We have to
integrate them without creating
ghettos," said Boston -born
Rosen who spent most of his
adult life working in areas of
social planning and community
organization before coming to
Israel in 1967 and since then.
During the early years of the
State, new immigrants were sent
to transit camps consisting of
tents and, later, of huts and
shacks. These became instant
slums and ghettos. "We are
determined to avoid the mistakes
of the past," both Arnon and
Rosen said. Now, the absorption
centers provide housing facilities
and residential, social and
cultural facilities.
After their period of ab-
sorption, the Ethiopian Jews are
sent to towns where they can be
"mutually self-supportive, but
not so much that the areas to
which they are assigned become
ghettos," Rosen said. This
requires advance planning with
local authorities so that there is
some parity between the
Ethiopian Jews and the local
But this itself is a problem
because Israel suffers from a
housing shortage, making it
difficult at times to find the
proper mix and often requiring
holding back housing units from
other immigrants. "Saying yes to
one group means saying no to
another, a classic cause of social
tensions," Rosen observed. "We
have to find ways of equalizing
integration of all olim and
Israelis without saying no to
anyone. And this stretches not
only budgets but also
imagination and social and
community planning."
Settling Ethiopian Jewish
families is another problem, he
pointed out. It's hard to find
their relatives in Israel who made
aliya ahead of newcomers or
those who follow them. The
Ethiopians have six to 10
common surnames, the
equivalent of Jones or Smith.

Temple Beth El Evening In Israel, praised the success of
the affair held recently at Temple Beth El, where Dr.
Samuel Z. Jaffe, spiritual leader of Temple Beth El since
1958, was singled out by Zev W. Kogan, president of the
Jewish National Fund Southern Region, for his dedica-
tion and devotion to the JNF. Dr. Jaffe is a graduate of
Yeshiva University, holds a master's degree from
Teachers College at Columbia University and Th.D. from
Burton Seminary. He is a graduate of the Teachers
Institute of the Rabbi Elchanan Theological Seminary,
New York.
The honorees of the evening were Judge Morton and
Gladys Abram, veteran Zionists and distinguished
leaders of the community. They have carved a unique
place for themselves at Temple Beth El. Judge Abram is
a founder and past president of the temple Beth El, and
has served on the board in various capacities for more
than 25 years. He is active in various national and local
institutions and is widely known for his book reviews.
Gladys Abram is an outstanding leader in her own
right, as a past president and founder of Temple Beth El,
as well as a past president of the Sisterhood.
"Judge Morton and Gladys Abram complement one
another in their devotion to civic and Jewish causes,"
said Rabbi Jaffe, in his address to some 250 guests at
"Evening In Israel." Rabbi Jaffe, who has served on the
presidium of the JNF Southern Region, is a past presi-
dent of the Southeast Association of the Central Con-
ference of American Rabbis, the Rabbinical Association
cf Greater Miami, and the Broward County American
Jewish Committee. He is a founder and past president of
the Hollywood Clergymen's Fellowship and served four
terms as president of the South Broward Board of
Rabbis. He is on the board of the Committee on Soviet
Jewry and the National Rabbinic Board of ORT. He is a
member of the Synagogue Council of America and served
two terms on the executive board of the Central
Conference of American Rabbis.
Guest artists at the event were Shmuel Fershko at
the piano, and Claude Kadosh, Israeli singer. Joyce
Gould chaired the event, and she and Mrs. Jaffe were
recognized for their active participation in arranging
the evening.

To accomplish this, Rosen
noted*, other human needs have
been cut back. "We've had to
stop building settlements on the
new borders with Egypt and
stopped building new settlements
in the Galilee," he said. "Again,
saying yes to one need means
saying no to another."
Absorption, he observed, is
only one side of the process. The
other side is acceptance. But the
latter is not always forthcoming
and tensions between the
Ethiopian Jews and others have
flared up frequently.
For example, in Beersheba, the
Habad Hasidic movement's Uziel
School refuses to register
Ethiopian Jewish children for the
coming school year. A third of
the pupils are presently
Ethiopian immigrants and the
Habad movement has announced
that it will check their Jewish
status before deciding if they will
be able to continue their studies

Ethiopian immigrants have
also been rebuffed in other ways
by the ultra-Orthodox. Two
weeks ago, some of the
Ethiopians were chased away
from the Western Wall where
they had come to pray and told
that they were not Jewish. They
have complained about the
demand by the Chief Rabbinate
Council that they undergo
symbolic "conversion" rites,
intimating that their authenticity
as Jews is the question.
In some towns, they have been
told that they are not welcome
because the locals fear they will
compete for jobs or because there
is large-scale unemployment.
Peres, in affirming the
Jewishness of the Ethiopian
immigrants, pointed out that the
challenged to their Jewishness is
part of the controversial Who is a
Jew issue.

But there are welcome mats
out for the Beta Yisrael, and this
is the norm rather than the
exception. One prominent
example is in Jerusalem where
arrangements are being made to
recognize the traditional elders of
the Ethiopian community, called
Kessim in Amharic, as rabbis.
Machon Meir is the institution
that is providing religious in-
structions to a number of
Kessim. The institute. described
by its director, Rabbi Dov
Begun, as Zionist-oriented, has
been offering courses in Hebrew
to three of the Kessim for the
past three months. Plans are
under way for another 10 to begin
a one-year program, which would
also include Jewish history,
religious thought and the Bible.
The Kessim were respected
leaders in Ethiopia but now find
themselves without a
position and penniless.

Begun hopes, form the core of the
future spiritual leadership of the
Ethiopian Jews. Begun said at
the same time, the institute

transitory difficulties, Rosen is
certain that the Ethiopian Jews
will make it here. "Their com-
mitment to Judaism is m. I

March 20: David Harris reported on a recent Mission to
Ethiopian which he was a participant along with Congressman
Gray (Pa.) and Congressman Ackerman (NY) aa well as
Directors of Catholic Relief Service and other organizations
providing relief for famine victims. The group went to Ethiopia
to bear witness to the horrors taking place there. Statistically,'
out of every 1,000 births there are 160 deaths and lA of all
children die before they reach one year of age. The mission
visited synagogues in the Gondar Province. There are in many
cases two synagogues in one village. The Ethiopians who make
the long trip on foot have faced starvation, cold, heat and
soldiers but still they attempt to leave. One important note,
Israel has done what no other country has to risk so much to
save Blacks. Israel is there to welcome its Jews. Even the non-
Jews who come from Ethiopia are welcomed into Israel with
open arms. Pictured, from left, Beverly Hollander, Soviet and

Village promotes Arab, Jewish understanding
Philadelphia Jewiafa Exponent
a Christian Arab from Nazareth,
never had a Jewish friend. His
only contact with Jews was on
buses or in police stations. "I
didn't like Jews," admitted the
dark-haired young man. "You
could even say I hated them."
He maintained that opinion
until four years ago when he
came to Neve Shalom (Hebrew
for "Oasis of Peace"), a small
village outside of Jerusalem
where 35 Jews, Christian Arabs
and Moslems live together in an
environment that encourages
understanding and cooperation.
"I didn't expect anything. But
for the first time I met Jewish
people my age who listened to
me," Awad said..
"It was also the first time you
listened to us," said Ariela
Bairey, a 25-year-old Jew from
Haifa who was also skeptical
about Jews and Arabs living
together, until she came to the
The two are counselors at Neve
Shalom and work with groups of
Arab and Jewish teenagers who
throughout the year come to the
village's School for Peace for
four-day seminars.
Participants come from towns
and cities geographically near
each other. Often the teenagers
are shy at the beginning of the
seminars and the groups keep to
But when they are divided up
and participate in role-playing
and encounter groups, they
reveal their stereotypes of each
other and expose their identity
"Ariz and I are role models.
When they start talking to each
other, they realize that everyone
has the same fears." said Bairey.
Despite hostility over politics,
counselors encourage the youths
to deal with reality and not try to
prove whose perception of history
is more justified.
"Often, Arab participants say.
The Jews took our land.' We're
not trying to prove who is right.
We want the kids to listen to each
other and decide how they will
deal with the situation given the
present reality," Bairey said.
"People still have this dream that
the other person is going to dis-
appear. But we try to show them
that we're partners and there is
noway out."
For some, the seminars can be
jolting. Once, a Jewish teenager
became hysterical. "What am I
going to do?" she cried. "Every-
thing my grandparents taught
me is being called into question."
Participants, ages 16 and 17,
are brought to the school in
groups of 48 by their schools.
Jewish youths include Sephardim
and Ashkenazim and come from
cities, development towns and
kibbutzim. More than 5,000
Jewish and Arab teens have
made the journey up the long
gravel path to the village since
the school opened six years ago.
The school is recognized by the
Ministry of Education.
Follow-up workshops for
Jewish and Arab adults are also
held, and to date, 1,000 adults
have participated. Many times,
they also come with reservations.
"The parents are afraid the
kids will question their value
system, and there is a fear on
both sides of intermarriage," said
The school has a policy of not
working with Arabs from the
West Bank. "We have to work
with people who are living within
the same state before we can have
meetings between West Bank
Arabs and Jews," Awad said.
"After we solve our problems
here, we can start on the
problems of the West Bank."
Moat members of Neve Shalom
are not involved in the school and
earn their living either in the
village or outaide the settlement.
Those employed at the village
work either with the settlement's
sheep or at the beehives, green-
house, almond and olive groves
or guest hotels.
This fall, the village has
opened a building for kinder-
garten and elementary school
classes for the eight Arab and 10
Jewish school-age youngsters
living at Neve Shalom. The
school is part of the village's plan
to promote mutual coexistence
between the different religions
and cultures in an educational
curriculum. The classes will be
Previously, the Neve Shalom
children attended separate
schools outside the village.
Special attention is also given
to the religious and political
sensitivities of the adult mem-
bers of Neve Shalom. "For me,
Israel's Independence Day means
pain and hurt. It means I don't
have my own country," said
"Many people here are very
happy and really want to cel-
ebrate the day, but they don't go
into the streets of Neve Shalom
and scream and yell. It wouldn't
be fair for me to expect them not
to celebrate the day, but they are
aware that it is a day that hurts a
lot of people," he said.
Both Awad and Bairey are
criticized by friends and relatives
for their decision to live at Neve
Shalom. Awad's Arab friends
often ask, "How can you live
with Jews when they took your
land?" Bairey's contemporaries
say, "How can you trust the
Arabs after they put bombs on
buses? They will stick a knife in
your back."
We have to break down these
stereotypes. The destinies 0f
Jews and Arabs are tied to-
gether," said Bairey. "If every-
one keeps trying to prove that
they are right, they will end up
making their point six feet under
the earth."

She poured a Coke from her
refrigerator for herself and her

Some of it was about her early
years in Paris, her life with her
husband in Egypt and their
arrival in Israel in 1957 following
the Suez war. More was about
their life in Israel, and how his
death in 1980 left her lonely.
But most was about her past
two years here at the Sheltered
Housing Project for Senior
Citizens in Gilo, a Jerusalem
suburb. "I am happy here," she
said. "I like being with people my
own age, who have also lived a
long time and know what things
were like years ago. But I also
like being with the younger
families who live here."

There is also a recreational

talk about the Club Room.

entering the Club Room. "It's so

Kahane's popularity causes alarm
Israel Today
JERUSALEM The growing
popularity of Rabbi Meir Kahane
and his openly racist preachings
against the Arabs among Israel's
youth has aroused alarm bells
with educators who are preparing
an intensive program to
strengthen the Democratic
values of the new generation.
Kahane, the founder of the
militant Jewish Defense League
in the U.S., won only 1.2 percent
of the vote in last July's election,
enough for one seat in the
Knesset. But his support was
twice as high among conscripts in
the Israel Defense Forces (18 to
21 year olds) and latest opinion
polls show that if the election
were held now he would more
than triple his parliamentary
Kahane's election victory and
his inroads with the youth
shocked nearly all adults who
regarded Israel's democracy as a
matter of fact. Kahane's sim-
plistic racist views, which ad-
vocate the forcible expulsion of
all Arabs from Judea, Samaria
and even Israel (if they won't
leave voluntarily) is outside the
Zionist consensus.
"He is a threat to the very
fabric of Zionism, Israel's
political system and cherished
Jewish humanistic values Dr
Ank Carmon of Tel Aviv
University's Education Faculty
said in an interview with Israel
"Kahane served as a catalyst
for the growing concern, but in
fact Kahanism is a symptom of a

Carmon said.
A survey among 651 Israelis
aged 15 to 18 conducted last
Semptember found that 15
percent held "consistently anti-
Democratic views" and this
jumped to about half when the
issue of Arabs was involved.
Some 60 percent thought
Israeli Arabs, who make up 16
percent of Israel's population, are
not entitled to equal rights with
the Jewish citizens and 47
percent supported reducing the
rights of Israeli Arabs. Some 62
percent favored annexing Judea,
Samaria and Gaza, 64 percent
opposed granting the Arabs there
the vote.

Dr. Carmon, who is Chairman of

as seminars for teachers and

fact that racism has developed
among a minority of the public
especially among the youth," the
Pedagogical Secretariat of the
Education Ministry wrote in a
circular to school principals,
which reached Israel Today. The
program will seek to clarify basic
concepts of democracy, such as
liberty versus equality, empathy,
the human tendency towards evil
(stereotyping prejudices, violence
and terror! and tolerance towards
minority groups and views.
"The real test of Israel's
democracy is the attitude
towards the Arabs minority,"
says Binyamin Levi, national
supervisor for special projects in
the education ministry.
"We must remember Israel is
still a society in the making. We
are only 37 years old and in the
midst of forming the patterns
and framework for our culture.
Schools here therefore have an
added burden, to prepare
students to participate tomorrow
in the process of crystalizing the
Democratic procedure, to create a
Democratic tradition," stressed
Dr. Carmon a.
He said young people are also
confused by "the double
message" they receive about the
Arabs. Israel is a democracy, but

10 Ethiopian Jews
studying at TAU
TEL AVIV (JTA) Ten Ethiopian Jews are now
studying at Tel Aviv University after having attended
special preparatory courses, and another 11 are now at-
tending the pre-university "mehina" course to bring them
up to the required standards.
The Ethiopian Jews began joining the special in-
troductory courses for new immigrants and disad-
vantaged students three years ago and are reported to
have picked up Hebrew and adjusted extremely well.
According to Roberta Goldstein, a vocational counselor
in the Dean of Students Office, they are highly motivated.
"They have their hearts set on studying in Israel and
show a great desire to succeed," Goldstein said.
"They learn Hebrew more quickly than most other
immigrants and they study hard. And they are ex-
ceptionally motivated in what they do, despite the tragic
background many come from, and the problem ofin-
tegrating into a very different society."

Until now teachers have been

subject, but the recent surveys
have convinced the Education
Ministry that what is ultimately
at stake is the democratic nature

Kahanism has also worried
Israeli lawmakers and legislators
who are trying to nip in the bud
his Nazi-style racist proposals
through legislation.

looked upon as an extremist, but
one who didn't have to be dealt

General Yehudit Karp.

Karp also blamed the
phenomenon of racism on the
negligent educational system.

prohibit incitement against any
individual or group on the basis
of race, nationality or religion

these grounds. This would
prevent Kahane from standing

ATHENS, Greece Prime
Minister Andreas Papandreou of
Greece and Israeli Prime
Minister Shimon Peres are each
indebted to the other's coun-
trymen for little known incidents
that occurred in the darkest days
of World War II.
Palestinian Jews rescued
Papandreou's father, George,
from the Nazis in German-
occupied Greece more than 40
years ago. At about the same
time, the Greek underground, of
which the elder Papandreou was
a member, rescued Peres' father,
Itzhak Persky, from the Gestapo.
According to an ex-Haganah
officer who was in Greece during
the war and who later became a
high-ranking official in the Israeli
Foreign Ministry, a small team of
Palestinian Jews was operating
an "illegal" sealift in the eastern
Mediterranean during the war.
Its purpose was to rescue Jews
who managed to reach the Greek
island of Evia, not far from here.
A local Greek shipowner supplied
the vessels that transported the
escaped Jews from Evia to Izmir
in Turkey, a neutral country.
In Izmir, the rescued Jews
were provided for by Raphael
Barkis, a wealthy Greek Jew,
until they could be handed over
to Aliyah Bet, the underground
Jewish immigration
organization, for transfer to
Palestine or another safe country
in the Middle East.
On one occasion, the captain of
a Greek rescue ship informed the
head of the Jewish escape team
on Evia that he had a "very
important passenger" to spirit
out of Greece. Although the VIP
was not Jewish, he was taken in
by the Haganah. His name was
George Papandreou, a prominent
anti-Nazi resistance fighter with
a price on his head. After his
rescue, he joined the Free Greek
Forces fighting with the British
army in North Africa.

Q: My neighbor and I were
talking about Medicare one
night. We got into an argument
about what happens to a person
who cheats on his Medicare
claims. I said that if someone
gets caught, he may go to jail for
fraud. My neighbor insisted that
the person may be fined a great
deal of money. Please tell us who
is right: my neighbor or I?
A: Actually, you are both
right. According to a particular
Social Security Act provision,
persons, committing certain
fraudulent acts, can be punished
by means of both monetary fines
and imprisonment. In relation to
Medicare, government
distinguishes between criminal
and civil penalties. Criminal
penalties are usually imposed on
a person who "knowingly and
willfully" misrepresents in-
formation on a claim, makes false
statements, conceals any in-
formation in order to secure
Medicare reimbursement, or
retains Medicare payment after
he applied for the benefit of
another person. If such in-
dividual commits fraudulent acts
directly, he is guilty of a felony
and, if convicted, may be fined up
to $25,000 or imprisoned for up to
five years. If someone else (other
than a person submitting a claim)
is involved, that person is guilty
of a misdemeanor and, if con-
victed, may be fined up to
$10,000 or imprisoned for up to
one year. If a doctor misleads
Medicare or violates an
agreement with Medicare, he
may be faced with civil money
penalties. A good example is a
case of physicians who over-
charge patients in violation of the
temporary physician fee freeze.
In July 1984 Medicare put a 15-
month freeze on the fee
allowances for physician's ser-
vices. During this period (ef-
fective through September 1985),
doctors must not charge patients
any more than they did in June
1984. Those who violate the
agreement may be asked topav.
civil penalty of up to $2,000
Q: Does Medicare pay for th,
use of heat lamps?
A: Medicare will reimburse.
patient for the use of heat lam,
only if such medical equipment
has a therapeutic effect on the
patient. Medical staff employed
by Medicare considers ead-;
individual claim and decides
whether or not the use of heat
lamps is covered.

Blum says Israel economic cuts drastic
Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle
During his years at the United
Nations, Yehuda Blum became
adept at responding to unfair,
often bizarre statements with
diplomatic calm. After all, the
United Nations spends about
two-thirds of its time trying to
whip little Israel.
The State Department
statement that Israel wasn't
doing enough to solve its
economic woes, however, was an
exception. Ambassador Blum
fairly bristled at the suggestion.
"Our standard of living fell 7Vi
percent in real terms in 1984 and
it will fall more this year," Blum,
now visiting international law
professor at Michigan, asserted.
Israel has cut a billion from its
budget and reduced subsidies
drastically. "This will cut even
more deeply into the standard of
There are limits of privation a
democracy can safely expect from
its citizens, Blum warned. "We
have already a steep increase in
unemployment which can create
social, security, and certainly a
moral problem for us.
"First of all, unemployment
could exacerbate class divisions.
Secondly, between 70,000-80,000
Arabs from the occupied
territories work in Israel. They
may be the first workers to be let
go. Idleness may lead them to
terrorist actions.
"If they remain employed,
there will be great resentment
from Israeli citizens who are out
of work."
Since the austerity measures
began, inflation has dropped
sharply, along with imports,
exports, the standard of living
and employment.
Last October, for instance,
inflation was pegged at 28
percent monthly. In January and
February of. thie .year, it was S'
and 3 percent respectively.
"Basically, Israel's economy is a
sound one," the diminutive ex-
envoy said.
"Look, we exported $11 billion
worth of goods last year, a very
large sum for a nation our size.
But, we had to import about $6
Some parts of the Israel
budget are virtually uncuttable.
"About 37 percent goes for
defense and 25 percent for debt
retirement. We cannot cut either,
so we must make our cuts from
the remaining 38 percent for
health, social, educational,
welfare, etc.
"We must also restructure our
economy. We are poor in natural
resources but rich in human
brainpower. Hi-tech is the an-
swer. The interim period which
we are in now is the most dif-
ficult, until we become a hi-tech
economy. We must shorten this
tune gap."
Economically speaking, the
absorption of thousands of
Ethiopian Jews came at the
wrong time for a nation
struggling to make ends meet. As
envoy Blum points out, however,
Don't congratulate us. It is our
Jewish duty. It is Israel's mison
a etre."
The absorption of a people
centuries behind in technological
know-how is "obviously difficult.

sorption is four times that of

Turning to the Mubarak visit
to the U.S. and his much-
heralded statement favoring
talks between a Jordanian-
Palestinain delegation and Israel
under the sponsorship of the
U.S., Blum said, "I felt from the
start, the public relations factor
was most important. It was
timed to coincide with his visit
and to quiet Jewish community
complaints about Mubarak's
treatment of the Camp David
"We in Israel are grateful for
the peace with Egypt, but what
we got was not what we were
looking forward to. There is no
shooting but then there is no
ambassador" from Egypt,
Blum pointed out that
Mubarak has actually raised the
ante for returning his am-
bassador to Israel. Now that
Israel has begun to withdraw
from Lebanon one of the early
conditions Mubarak wants
Israel to begin dismantling all of
the West Bank settlements.
Blum also decried the Taba
issue as a legitimate cause for

"I should have thought since

party talks is over. Mubarak
should realize that his proposal
was bizarre."
withholding an ambassador.
"Taba is only 800 yards. After
all, we returned the entire Sinai.
It is a false issue. All of these
questions indicate that
Mubarak's statement was just a
public relations exercise."
Despite Mubarak's per-
formance, "we remain interested
in the peace process. We want
Jordan to join the Camp David
effort. Hussein, however, has
always been a fence-sitter. We
have always regretted that he has
never chosen to join talks
without any preconditions."
Pointing out that the Camp
David accords "explicitly exclude

remains the only viable formula
for peace because it aims at

How flexible will Gorbachev be?
Israel Today
Soviet Premier Konstantin
Chemenko, having served since
February 1984, is now part of the
USSR's past. When Joseph
Stalin died in 1964 it is said that
many Muscovites envisioned a
more creative government and
better times ahead. Are similar
hopes now attached to their new
leader, Mikhail Gorbachev? And
if so, are they realistic?
I think several Sovietologists
would agree that the USSR has
been on a collision course with
itself; outwardly obsessed with
World War II sacrific and suf-
fering, and promoting
propaganda about the threat of
nuclear war posed by the United
State inwardly trying to cope
with a terminal economic con-
dition, an archaic agricultural
program, and a rising awareness
of Soviet citizenry to the fact that
their systems is not working.
While awareness may be the first
step in correcting a malady, my
visit to the Soviet Union two
years ago gave me the impression
that the people saw no hope for
change until the last of the
elderly Politburo bunch had
finished serving as Premier,
allowing a younger man to take
the reins and cause change. Mr.
Gorbachev, at 54, has the
possibility of filling the bill.
Gorbachev, a lawyer and
agricultural economist, entered
the Politburo five years ago,
making him its youngest
member. In charge of agriculture,
he reduced Central control over
State farmers and initiated a new
program whereby the farmers
were given extra money to boost
agricultural productivity and
the program has been effective.
So, we can assume that he is
amenable to change, rather than
charting the old course. But how
much change will be supported
by other members of the
Politburo and how is it apt to
affect relations with the West?
We are told that Gorbachev is
"charismatic," and that the
British and Canadians have een
greatly impressed with him.
True, Mrs. Thatcher, England's
Prime Minister, after a meeting
with him last summer in London,
said "I can do business with
him." And our TV view is that he
doesn't seem to fit the mold of
dour Kremlin leaders; he appears
affable, smiles a lot and looks
friendlier. On the surface, it
would appear that his personality
is more suited to dealing with
Westerners I agree. But,
remember we were told that
Andropov, who was the architect
of the encompassing role which
the KGB plays today," was a
pussycat who liked Western
scotch, jazz, and fancy cars."
Vladimir Sakharov, a former

credited with the foregoing
Andropov quote and who at-
tended school in the Soviet Union
with Andropov'8 daughter, was
in Los Angeles a few weeks ago.
A likeable man, who speaks with

In the meantime, the only
point that our American
politicians agree on is the fact
that Konstantin Chernenko is
indeed dead and that his suc-
cessor is Mikhail Gorbachev. As
to the latter, various notables
have been interviewed:

Former ambassador to the Soviet
Union, chairman emeritus of
IBM: "I don't think the United
States should expect any real
change in the Soviet Union as a
result. The government of the
USSR is a very solid, firmly-in-
place, bureaucratic government.
We like to think that everyone
there would like to revolt, but
that is simply not the fact. Most
of the Soviet people are happy;
they may be unhappy about some
things, but they are not about to
revolt. Occasionally there are
some freedom moves, but such
activity is very minimal. I think
the impact of this change will be
Editor of Foreign Affairs
magazine: "He would never have
reached the Politburo unless he
had been loyal to the system and
trustworthy in the eyes of the
former president, Leonid
Brezhnev, and Mikhail Suslov. It
is therefore hard to think of
Gorbachev as the new liberal.
But we are nonetheless dealing
with a leader of the new
generation. He is 64. It's difficult
to believe he will be a carbon copy
of the 73-year-old Chernenko.
Gorbachev also inherits a vastly
different situation than Brezhnev
did in 1964: major economic
problems that cry out for
sweeping reform, a potentially
inflammable situation in Eastern
Europe, the continuing problems
of Afghanistan, China and of an
American adversary that seems
to be gaining in self-confidence
and assurance. This kind of
situation would suggest, as one
option, that Gorbachev will play
for time by reviving a
semidetente with the West. If
this is his choice, he has to be
more forthcoming in the Geneva
arms control talks and find some
common ground even on such
controversial issues as "Star
Wars." At the same time, he has
to consolidate his political
position in the Politburo.'
Professor of political science at
Duke University and a staff
member of the Brookings
Institution: "The speed of
Gorbachev's election suggests
that he was selected considerably
earlier. In my opinion, the Soviet
leadership decided on a two-stage
selection after the death of Yuri
Andropov. For this reason, I
believe that Gorbachev has
already had a year to begin
consolidating power, that he will
continue the consolidation very
rapidly as the party Congress
approaches at the beginning of
next year. The speed of Gor-
bachev's election also suggests
that the Politburo is willing to
facilitate this development in
order to demonstrate to the West
that it has a strong leader rather
than leadership confusion."
Certainly, Mr. Gorbachev will
institute some change, but it will
take time. In the past, it has
taken at least six months before
any policy changes were evident.
Because of his age, it is
reasonable to assume he will be
around for a long time. How
much impact we are able to make
will depend upon how flexible or
inflexible is the real Gorbachev.
We will be propagandized as to
how "Western-minded" the new
leader is, personally. And,
Americans will call for a sof-
tening of our policy toward the
USSR. However we have been
through this before; and if there
are holes in the image placed
before us we will find them. In
time it is Mr. Gorbachev, himself,

as his successor should produce a
much higher order of vigor,
flexibility and thoughtfulness in
the leading position. But one
should remember that the
Politburo is a collective body.
Even the first secretaryship does
not of itself connote absolute
personal power. It is not to be
expected that the advent of
Gorbachev will in any way affect
Soviet positions at the arms
control talks with the United
States at Geneva."
Director of the Rand-UCLA
filter for the Study of Soviet
International Behavior: "There
is likely to be more of a change in
the form and style of the Soviet
leadership than in substance. The
importance of this, however,
should not be minimized. In
foreign affairs, it is likely to make
the Soviet Union a more for-
midable adversary. Merely
because Mikhail Gorbachev
contrasts with his frequently
^-apacitated, aged and only
intermittently articulate
predecessors, he will seem more
energetic and will be able to
present the Soviet case far more
effectively than his predecessors.
On substance, particularly in the
arms control area, there is no
reason to believe in the short run
that there will be any difference
at all. Any Soviet leadership
would try first to soften up the
U.S. commitment to the
Strategic Defense Initiative, the
so-called "Star Wars," and if
there is a Soviet fallback
position, not to reveal it in the
early stages."
TFormer director of Russian
studies at Princeton University
I and author of "The Soviet
Political Mind": "This is finally
the true post-Brezhnev suc-
cession, a leader that has the
actuarial likelihood of being in
this position for some time.
Inside the Politburo and outside
among the political elites, a very
serious struggle may be going on
between the die-hard con-
servatives who had a
""^.icsentative in power and those
like Gorbachev, who, however
tough and loyal to the Soviet
system, see that the country
simply is in crying need of long
overdue internal change."

experience Israel
JERUSALEM "Tapuz" means "orange" to
Israelis, but for thousands of
Latin American youngsters, it
means an exciting way to ex-
perience Israel.
The program called Tapuz
began during the 1973 Yom
Kippur War, when the massive
call-up created a manpower
shortage. Brazilian teenagers
came to help out and picked
oranges on the mainly Brazilian
kibbutz of Brur Hayil in the
western Negev. That group has
been followed by many more in
what has become probably the
most popular program for
Today they no longer only pick
oranges. The two-month program
combines a few weeks of kibbutz
life with trips around the country
and informative seminars.
Ariel Wagner, a 26-year-old
school teacher from Buenos
Aires, came to Israel recently in
charge of a Tapuz group from his
home city. "I view Tapuz as a
strengthening link between the
Jewish communities in the
diaspora and their history, the
roots," he said in an interview
with the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency. "Coming to Israel,
learning about the country's
history and getting to know it as
it is today strengthens our sense
of belonging."
Some 1,600 young adults come
annually from Argentina, Brazil
and nine other countries to spend
their summer vacation in Israel.
Most of the Tapuz groups come
from southern hemisphere
countries and spend January and
February in Israel. Groups from
northern hemisphere countries
Mexico, Venezuela and Spain
come during July and August.
For many it is their first visit
to Israel. They become
acquainted with Israeli life-styles
and with specific problems
related to Israel's society, culture
and political structure. They
spend 40 days on a kibbutz,
working in the mornings and
attending educational programs
in the afternoons. They learn
about Israel's political parties,
about the country's absorption
problems and about he nation's
A weekend spent with a family
on a moshav and another
weekend hosted by an Israeli
youth movement give the
youngsters a taste of other Israeli
life-styles outside the kibbutz.
Silvio Blau, 26, from Uruguay
lives in Jerusalem and is about to
complete his Israel Defense Force
service. His first trip to Israel
was on a Tapuz program at the
age of 16. Three years later he
made aliya.
"I decided to come to live in
Israel when I was 18, but the idea
was put in my mind during my
first encounter with the kibbutz,"
said Blau. "That was the first
time I worked in agriculture, and
my decision to make aliya was
bound with a desire to build a
new agricultural settlement."
"That experience in the kib-
butz changed my life," he added.
"I took a B.Sc. degree in
agriculture with that goal in
mind before I joined the army. I
suppose you could really call me
one of Tapuz's success stories."
Wagner, currently in Kibbutz
Lohamei Hageta'ot in the
western Galilee with his group,
said, "For most of my group, who
attend non-Jewish schools and do
not belong to any other Jewish
framework, this is the first
contact with Zionism. We try to
show them the real Israel, rather
than present a rosy picture that
doesn t stand up to the test of
He described a typical
educatinal session. "Everybody
acted the role of a political figure
or party. We discussed the way
the coalition was formed and the
interaction and the balance of
power between the various
parties. Then we tried to form our
own coalition," said Wagner.
"We ended up with a national
unity government."
Bemmy Richter, head of the
Tapuz project at the Jewish
Agency's settlement and ab-
sorption department, affirmed
that strengthening ties between
diaspora comunities and Israel is
one of the goals. "We have
devised a special Tapuz program,
called Tapuz Hadracha, for
youngsters who plan to become
active in their Jewish com-
munities upon their return
The program is similar to the
regular Tapuz trip, with a shift in
the emphasis from kibbutz life to
educational seminars. The time
spent on a kibbutz is halved, and
instead the teenagers attend
more intensive seminars. They
also receive training in Jewish
and Zionist education.
Pauline Benvenoti, 17', from
Mar del Plata in Argentina, is on
the special Tapuz program for
young instructors. She said she
planned to continue her work
with young teenagers at her
Temple community after
returning to Argentina at the end
of February.
"Before I came I used to draw
material out of books on Is
and magazines, in order
discuss the issues with my
pupils. Now I will be able to draw
from my own experiences. I hope
I will be able to make the issues
come more alive," she said.
Since 1973, Tapuz has grown
rapidly. In addition to the regular
program and Tapuz Hadracha,
there are a few more variations on
the theme.
The univesity Tapuz program'
is for those thinking of studying J
for an academic degree in Israel.
In addition to a month of kibbutz
life, the group is taken around the
country's institutes of higher

Friday, April 12,1966 / The Jewish FToridian of South Broward-Hollywood
Zwickler exhibit starts April 23
Betty Usdan Zwickler is a
painter coping with two
diametrically opposing systems.
On one level she fragments the
three-dimentional sculptural
mass making an abstract
statement; on the other level she
counter-balances the weight of
the sculptural mass with feathery
texture, intense color, and liquid
movement incorporating
representational overtones to
explain the abstract. Thus, she
achieves a blend of substance and
transparency, represen-
tationalism and abstraction.
That she succeeds in what she
is doing is apparent by the
positive reaction of the viewer.
The reception for Betty
Zwickler will be Friday April 26
at 7:30 at The Gallery at the
South Florida Art Institute, on
the Ocean side of the Art and
Culture Center, 1301 S Ocean
Drive, Hollywood. Her exhibit

Jews praise U.S. effort to
airlift Jews from Sudan
leading American Jewish
organizations praised the United
States for its role in the secret
airlift of hundreds of Ethiopian
Jews from the Sudan to Israel.
But at the same time they
sought to keep a tight lid or any
further public disclosure of
details of the operation beyond
what has already appeared in the
American news media.
Israel continued its silence on
the rescue of Ethiopian Jews, as
it has since Operation Moses was
halted Jan. 6 due to premature
disclosure of its details. The
White House and the State
Department had no official
comment on the latest airlift or
the role played by the U.S.
Kenneth Bialkin, chairman of
the Conference of Presidents of
Major American Jewish
Orgaizations, in a statement, said
"As an American I am filled with
pride. As a Jew I am filled with
gratitude by the unselfish and
humanitarian action of our
government and of the personal
involvement of Vice President
George Bush and President
He added that "what they did
here shows that the United
States is willing when it has the
opportunity to do so to help those
people who want to help
themselves in seeking freedom."
The National Jewish Com-
munity Relations Advisory
Council, in a statement, said,
"We are profoundly moved by
the report of the three-day
operation completing the
evacuation of virtually all of the
Ethiopian Jews left in the refugee
camps after the airlift was halted
in Jan ,. and we welcome the
actions of the United States
government. It is very much in
the spirit of the special
relationship of the United States
and Israel.
According to media reports of
the airlift, the operation involved
the United States Air Force, the
CIA and the State Department.
The evacuation, the reports said,
brings to Israel virtually all
Ethiopian Jewish refugees who
were stranded in Sudan after the
airlift carried out by Israel from
November to January was
halted. Some 8,000 Jews were
reportedly brought to Israel
during that operation.
The Los Angeles Times, which
carried the first reports of the
three-day evacuation, said that it

severe burns in a suicide truck-

were killed in the attack.
The skin shortage was at-
tributed to a law passed by the
Knesset a year ago under intense
pressure from the Orthodox
political parties forbidding the
storage of human skin in skin
banks for future emergencies.
Israeli doctors reportedly ap-
pealed to colleagues in Holland to

was worked out by Bush in a
meeting March 6 with Sudanese
President Gaafer ai-Nimeiry. The
Times reported that Nimeiry told
Bush he had no objection to the
removal of refugees from Sudan
as long as it was done quickly
and quietly, and according to
other reports, that it wa not
conducted with Israeli planes.
The White House is widely
reported to have given its ap-
proval for the operation. While
there are no precise figures of
how many Ethiopian Jews were
flown out on the propeller-driven
C-130 transport aircraft, it is
reported that about 900
Ethiopian Jews lived as refugees
in Sudan for about a year.
They were believed to have
been in the Gedaref area, about
200 miles southeast of Khartoum.
The Times correspondent
reported that the area in the
Tawawa refugee camp where the
Jews were houaed was deserted.
The operation, the Times
correspondent in Sudan, Charles
Powers, reported, began at dawn.
The Ethiopian Jews "were moved
in a top secret and closely timed
operation." He wrote that "the
refugees, who had been moved
during the night from Tawawa, a
camp six miles away, were loaded
swiftly, probably in groups of 80
to 90 with each plane staying on
the ground as long as necessary."
Powers, reporting from
Gedaref, was detained in a state
security compound for 16 hours
and released when the operation
was completed. He quoted un-
named sources as saying Nimeiry
should easily ride out any
criticism for tacitly backing the
second airlift.

The Federation employs, in
addition, six social workers who
visit recipients and potential
recipients of the various aid
programs. These social workers
are all retired people themselves
(in Rumania retirement age is 60
for men and 57 for women),
boosting their pensions by doing
this work but doing it, as is
immediately and abundantly
apparent, much more out of love
and devotion than for the
material benefit.
Edelstein explains that the
federation cannot attract young,
professional social workers
"because we can't afford to pay
as much as the government." He
himself is a former senior official
at the Ministry of Foriegn Trade
who, when he retired, was eagerly
enlisted by Rabbi Rosen to head
up the assistance department.
A medical center or polyclinic
in Bucharest has doctors who are
also almost all retirees. Among
their number are some of the
country's better-known
specialists, including in-
ternationally-renowned virologist
Prof. Nikolai Cajal, a member of
the Rumanian Academy of
While ostensibly health care is
provided free by the state to all
its citizens, the elderly andor
needy Jews are eligible to attend
the clinic, or call its physicians to
their homes, enjoy a considerably
more efficient, and immeasurably
more devoted, service. The clinic,
moreover, is linked to two
pharmacies which dispense its
doctors' prescriptions. The
drugs, like the medical diagnoses
and treatments, are all free for all
eligible patients and are not
available, even for money, for
people not adjudged eligible.
With 2,000 mostly young
professional Rumanian Jews
having left for Israel in 1984
alone, and with only 50 Jewish
births having been registered
throughout the country, Cajal
predicts the virtual end fo this
entire, impressive, moving
structure of organized Jewish life
within a decade. A combination
of aliya and biology will see to
that, he says.
Israeli experts tend to agree.
They feel there is potential for a
further 10,000 Rumanian Jewish
immigrants to Israel at most,
with the remainder of the
community intent on living out
their lives in Rumania.
Rabbi Rosen does not agree
with the essence of this
prognosis. But he predicts a
slower shrinkage. In ten years
time, he believes, there will still
be a Jewish population of 15,000.
"Whether or not there will still
be organized, flourishing com-
munal and religious Jewish life
that depends on us," Rosen says.
"Even the present situation is
unnatural, almost miraculous. A
community of 26,000 maintaining
active Jewish centers in 68
separate places complete with
synagogues and social services."
Rosen believes passionately
that the key to Rumanian
Jewry's monumental success
and the statistics, after all, add
up to an incredible success-story,
especially in view of the objective
circumstances has been his
unrelenting fight to preserve the
spiritual heritage. His greatest
pride and joy are the afterschool
classes, usually held in
synagogues, where the ever-
dwindling young generation
imbibes the fundamentals of their
people's culture and traditions.
"They may not become great
scholars (talmidei Hahamim),"
Rosen said in a speech at the
Choral Synagogue last month in
the presence of Israeli Premier
Shimon Peres, "but they grow up
with a profound knowledge of
what it means to be Jewish
and a profound commitment and
