"It's going to be a very suc-
cessful campaign," Barron told
the Jewish Floridian of South
Broward. "I view it as a very
challenging year. We're just going
to work very hard." Dr. Barron
said campaigns usually need some
crisis to happen "A war, an
Operation Moses, something out
of the ordinary to give impetus to
your campaign."
However, Barron said, the re-
cent acts of terrorism may
galvanize the South Broward
Jewish community and act as the
catalyst for a very successful
"There are a lot of people
around us who have made us
remember that we are Jews. All
you have to do is listen to the
details of the hijacking of TWA
Flight 847.
"If you were Jewish," Barron
said, "they tried to find out that
you were Jewish. You can't hide.
"The Arabs may be making a
campaign for us," he said.
Barron sees the federation cam-
paign as more than just raising
money. The campaign also is an
opportunity to educate people
about Jewish issues and Israel.
"One of the best ways we have
of educating people is through
missions. It's very hard to talk to
most people and explain Israel
and its needs if they have never
been to Israel," Barron said.
"It's very important for the
campaign that we get people to
Israel," he emphasized, adding
that education in any form is
beneficial. South Broward is one
of the leading mission-oriented
federations in the country and is
often called-upon to provide
assistance to other federations
which are upgrading their mis-
sions program.
Barron, in addition to serving as
campaign chairman, will begin his
third year as Project Renewal
chairman for the federation.
Through Project Renewal, South
Broward is helping break the

poverty and illiteracy cycle in two
neighborhoods of Hod Hasharon.
"It's the one tangible thing that
we can see from our money going
to Israel.
"Project Renewal is a specific
program in which we work direct-
ly with the Israelis living in Hod
Hasharon. It is not a case where
we give the Jewish Agency the
money and they take care of it.
"We're involved. We go there.
We sit on Renewal consultations.
We know the people. Some of us
have lived there and stayed there.
"And we've seen a lot of pro-
gress, and that makes it even bet-
ter. It makes you want to work
even harder because you've seen
progress," Barron emphasized.
During the interview, Barron
picked up on the United Jewish
Appeal's campaign theme of "One
People, One Destiny," which cap-
tures the connection between
Jews of different generations and
disparate origins.
Through the centuries, Barron
said, Jewish survival has always
depended on Jews taking care of
their own people.
"We believe in the Jewish peo-
ple, Judaism and Jewish survival
the continuing of our long

history," he said.
Barron said supporting the

mount to supporting Jewish
"It's not just during times of
war that Israel needs help," Bar
ron said.
"You just look at the debt crisis
in Israel. The people leaving Israel
because they refuse to live under
the terrible economic strife that
they have.
"If more people continue to
leave," Barron said, "then there
will be real problems."

Sam learned about
The GUARDIAN PLAN, program and
changed his mind about
buying cemetery property in Florida.
Like your family. Sam's family also had strong traditions. One of those was
burial in the family cemetery property in New York. But now that he and his wife
have retired to Florida, he was led to believe that his family tradition was no
longer practical, even though he would prefer to have funeral services back
home. Sam was worried about the emotional burden on his family. And frankly,
he was worried about the cost.
Then a friend told him about The GUARDIAN PLAN, insurance funded
prearranged funeral program.* Here are the facts Sam got.
He learned he could have funeral services in New York at a very reasonable
price. He learned he could arrange all the details in advance and set the price
he could afford to pay for the services he wanted. And The GUARDIAN PLAN
program would guarantee the amount would never increase. He also learned he
could select RIVERSIDE or one of the other guardian family of lewish funeral

Conservative Bully Attacked
Selections continue
The more time passes, the less life changes.
More than 40 years have passed since Josef Mengele butchered
and murdered 400,000 Jews at the Death Camp Auschwitz.
Jews lived and died during the selections. With a flick of his
hand, Mengele decided their fate.
Non Jews still are being targeted or should we say, selected
only because they are Jews.
In the hijacking of TWA Flight 847, the Shiite fanatics wanted
the crew to tell them which passengers had "Jewish-sounding
names." Does it have a familiar ring? Nothing really changes.
These Jews reportedly were being held by an extremist Shiite
group separate from the other hostages in Lebanon.
And the selections occurred and, no doubt, they will continue in
the future.
Survivors of the Holocaust also have been waiting more than
40 years to see Mengele captured, tried, convicted and sentenced
to death.
It is with a bittersweet taste that Jews read that medical ex-
perts say, with a "reasonable scientific certainty," that the
"Angel of Death" is dead.
If this is so, then Mengele cheated justice in the most heinous
fashion by living, unharmed, untouched and unrepentant.
But, "Is Mengele dead?"
Positive that is, 100 percent certain identification of the
body is impossible.
Thus, the search for Mengele and other Nazi war criminals in
the United States and elsewhere must continue with vigor.
That is the lesson from this latest chapter on Josef Mengele and
the Nazis. And that is the least we can do for the survivors and six
million of our brethren.
Now, the Jewish Federation of South Broward is about to em-
bark on an ambitious $7.25 million UJA-Federation campaign.
Why should South Broward Jews support the campaign by giv-
ing the most they can? The reason is simple. A UJA-Federation
campaign is shout survival Jewish survival. *
This too is a lesson we need to learn from Mengele and the
: Shiite Moslems.
Dr. Howard Barron, the 1986-86 campaign chairman, put it well
when he observed that there are a lot of people through the years
who have made us remember that we are Jews.
As such, the Jewish community needs to make sure it is strong
and secure and that Israel is strong and secure. And this means
| Jewish survival.
If you need convincing, just read the newspapers and learn
about the new selections.
It's an old story. By giving now to JFSB, we can write a new
I ending.
Near East Report
It's hard to believe there is a syndicated colum-
nist who actually makes Evans & Novak look sym-
pathetic to Israel. His name is Joseph Sobran and
his bigoted bombast can be found in major
newspapers in Denver, Indianapolis, Chicago,
Dallas, Detroit, St. Louis, Tulsa and 67 other
American cities.
Some of Sobran's comments are simply incredi-
ble. On December 5, 1984, he wrote a column on
The New Republic and its shift away from New
Deal liberalism. Sobran quoted Sen. Gary Hart
who speaking at the magazine's anniversary
party said that The New Republic defies easy
labels. Hart said, "The old labels don't work
Sobran retorted, "They don't, eh? Try 'Jewish,'
Senator. That label has been around for 4,000
years and it still works fine." Sobran also referred
to The New Republic's publisher, Martin Peretz, as
"a bearded Jewish McGovernite." Later he called
the magazine's party "as Jewish as 'Fiddler on the
It was during the Bitburg controversy that
Sobran really went to town. Naturally, Sobran
thought the President should lay the wreath at the
cemetery. He implored Reagan: "Mr. President,
you've made us proud. Don't let them make you
For Sobran, Bitburg was simple. On May 1, he
wrote that West Germany is America's ally, one
that has "cleansed itself of every particle of
Nazism." But the Germans "overlooked one thing:
They forgot to de-Nszify the graveyards. And we
are to humiliate them again. And Mr. Reagan is be-
ing called insensitive for wishing to spare German
feelings. You would think he had called Elie Wiesel
'Hymie.' (emphasis added).
Sobran took after the Bitburg critics in another
column two days later. He noted Sen. Arlen
Specter's opposition to the visit referring to him
as "a Jewish senator." Then he dismissed the op-
position of veterans' groups to the Bitburg wreath-
laying. "Why should I pretend that this uproar is
being caused by the veterans? What about 'the
power of the Jews' the Bitburg mayor referred

to." He then said that he loathes "minority groUD
bullying." In the same column he stated his view of
Nazi crimes: "bygones were bygones."
One influential reader of Sobran's column harl
had enough. Hy Rosen, long-time political ca7
toonist for the Hearst-owned Albany (New York)
Times-Union, responded to Sobran with a cartoon
which appeared on the paper's editorial page (the
same page where Sobran's column appeares) ]
showed Adolf Hitler and under him the caution
"Not All My Fans are Buried!" In the foreground
there was a man identified as "S.S.obran" banginr,
out what Rosen labeled as Sobran's "hit list" -
"Liberals, Jews, Women, Blacks, The PooJ
Moderates, Cuomo-Ethnic Slur, Logic
The cartoon was strong stuff and it produced the
predictable storm among Times-Union readers -
and Sobran himself. First, Sobran attacked the
Times-Union for running the cartoon. He pointed
to his own "Slavic blood" and said that "if I'd been
in Hitler's way as he went into the Ukraine, he
might have solved my weight problem for me." He
swore that "a lot of my intellectual heroes are
Jews" including "Norman Podhoretz, Irving
Kristol, and Sidney Hook." He then noted his own
propensity for "standing up to bullies," in this case
the "Jewish lobbies." But his main point was to up-
braid the Times-Union for printing Hy Rosen's
"little smear."
The editor of the Times-Union stood by his car-
toonist. In a statement to his readers (some of
whom were outraged by Rosen's cartoon), editor
Harry Rosenfeld wrote: "Sobran is a master at
regularly working over other members of the press
in personal terms. The first time he gets in kind
what he regularly traffics in, he cries foul, protests
that some of his best heroes are Jewish and lumps
all Jews into his self-serving stereotype. In short,
Sobran is a bully whose nose for once has been
bloodied in retribution. He is also a cry baby."
Joseph Sobran is an unusual case not typical
of syndicated columnists, which is something to be
grateful for. It is also a cause for gratitude if your
local paper says "no, thanks" when offered
Sobran's column.

The Chaos Called Lebanon
Assistant Editor
Near East Report
"The tragedy of Lebanon is that it has nc
government, no armed forces that can decide and
implement anything. It is a country in total
chaos," Israel's Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin,
observed recently as Israeli forces virtually com-
pleted their withdrawal.
With the Lebanese civil war now in its eleventh
year, recent fighting between the Shiite Moslem
Amal militia and PLO forces has resulted in more
than 500 killed and 2,300 wounded. The struggle
for Beirut's refugee settlements "could go on in-
definitely," according to several analysts. There
may be ups and downs in the level of violence, but
no one side appears strong enough to win a final
victory. Alliances are temporary. Only major in-
tervention by the Syrian army could impose a
lasting ceasefire and Damascus still does not
want to jump with both feet into the morass.
Syria, which defeated U.S. policy by insisting on
Lebanon's abrogation of the 1983 Israel-Lebanon
troop withdrawal agreement, and has outlasted
Israel, now predominates in Lebanon. President
Amin Gemayel went to Damascus for two days
recently to get Syrian guidance on how a factional
settlement should be arranged.
In part, the Shiite-PLO fighting serves Syria's
interest. It weakens the Yasir Arafat wing of the
organization and obstructs any joint PLO-
Jordanian diplomacy. But the enforced unity of the
pro- and anti- Arafat groups resisting Amal and the
neutrality of the Druze Amal' s allies in their spr-
ing defeat of the Sunni Moslem militia underline
the power of self-interest for all the Lebanese
groups. The Shiites, the anti-Arafat PLO and the
Druze, all backed by Syria, have taken different
roles in the current fighting. This emphasizes the
strength of "localism" in Lebanese affairs.
The continuing chaos in Lebanon represents
"something of a military and political defeat" for
Damascus and questions Syria's pretensions to
Arab leadership, according to Barry Rubin, a Mid-
dle East analyst and Council on Foreign Relations
Fellow. He pointed out that the Syrians "have a
large degree of influence, but they never had con-
trol." Rubin's paper, "Lebanon, Whose Failure?"
was published in May by the Johns Hopkins
University's Foreign Policy Institute.
Both the limited military capability of the
militias and "the fiction of Lebanon" no group
wants to bear the onus for openly partitioning the
country, even though partitioning is going on -
keep the fighting localized. Changes take place "on
the margins": Christians being driven out of the
Chouf Mountains by the Druze in 1983 or from
their villages near Sidon by the Shiites, Druze and
some Palestinians earlier this spring.
But Rubin doubts that any sectarian community
is likely to be ousted from its home turf. He
believes that even the 200j000-plus Palestinian
civilians will remain in Lebanon partly because
the recession in the oil states of the Gulf has reduc-
ed job opportunities there. But he says that the
PLO may Jose control of the strategically located
refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila in Beirut and
of Ain Hulweh in Sidon. An Israeli analyst counts
the Christians and Sunnis as the big losers in the
Lebanese struggle.
If the Shiites act essentially "as a self-interest
group," Israel's northern border with Lebanon
may be relatively quiet Even Shiite radicals who
assert that Israel should be destroyed indicate that
is not their job. In the south, Amal may be more
opposed to the continued presence of the primarily
Christian South Lebanon Army, backed by Israel,
in a security zone along the border.
The fighting in Beirut is part of the power strug-
gle in the capital. But the Shiites, who sre the ma-
jority in the south, clearly understand Jerusalem s
warning reiterated in Washington recently by
Rabin that southern Lebanon will have peace
only as long as northern Israel does. In other
words, it will be in their self-interest to see ttw
south Lebanon does not become, once again, a base
for terrorist attacks against Israel. Since southern
Lebanon also suffered under the PLO's "f*8^
within-a-state" in the south from 1975-1982, tne
incentive for Amal to keep the PLO out is strong

Local Swimmer
Goes for Gold
Continued from Page 1
Swimming in the Maccabiah Games has been one of Michael's goals
for years.
When Michael was 10-years old, his family spent a month on a kib-
hutz in Israel. His mother recalls "One day when Michael was swimm-
ing, one of the older people said, 'Some day maybe you'll come back and
swim in the Maccabiah.' Michael came home and put up a little sign that
said Maccabiah in his room."
"It's important for all of us for Michael to be swimming at the Mac-
cabiah. It's special for Michael to be involved there are a lot of uncom-
mitted Jews, whereas for Michael it's so much a part of his life," David
Michael has prepared for the games extensively. He is prepared
mentally and physically and has been training for months in advance,
Uavid said.
Aside from his weekday training regimen, Michael swims an extra
>ur hours on the weekend. He sticks to a strict diet that leaves out
UKar, junk food and red meat. And, he sacrifices a lot for the sport he
"Michael doesn't really have time for anything but swimming. He
,:ets up at 5 for practice, goes to school, back to practice. He's in bed by
10. There's no time for parties or clubs or hanging out with his friends.
Its a six-day routine," Helen said.
"I miss it, but I wouldn't give up swimming for anything," Michael

1 he said.
If Michael's parents aren't his strongest pushers, they are his
strongest supporters. They both agree "Michael is a very special boy"
and both make their own sacrifices to accommodate his schedule. At one
point, Helen was driving 150 miles a day to take Michael to practice and
"It's worth it because when you have a child who is so dedicated,
who wants something so much, you have to help him. It's better to
spend time on that than anything else," she said.
Both parents also agree swimming competitively has helped
Michael grow up and has taught him a great deal.
"He's learned so many things. No one really loses in a meet
everyone comes out a winner," Helen said.
But, as his father puts it, he rarely loses. "No one beats him in the
iast 15 feet. He hates to lose. He does what he has to do and he doesn't
waste time talking about it"
Signs that say "Seoul, Korea: 1988" have replaced the one that said
Maccabiah." They line his walls along with ribbons, plaques and
trophies attesting to his talent.
There is also a drawer-full of letters from colleges wanting Michael
10 swim for them. With two years of high school left, Michael is already
getting three or four letters a day.
Michael says he definitely wants to go to college and study sports
medicine. With a record and dedication like his, Michael should be able
10 get anything he wants.

Over 4,000 expected for
1985 Jewish Olympics
World Zionist Press Service
The countdown is on for the
12th Maccabiah Games which will
be held in Israel from July 15-25.
In an era when politics and sport
are unhappily mixed up, the com-
ing Maccabiah promises to
demonstrate that the spirit of
sportsmanship which is so fre-
quently lacking in contemporary
international sport, is alive and
well in the Jewish Olympics.
According to organizers Michael
Kevehazi and Arie Rosenzwige,
this Maccabiah will be the biggest
and best ever. More than 4,000
competitors are expected to
represent the Jewish communities
of 35 countries in 30 different
sports. This Jewish sporting "ex-
travaganza" will open at Ramat
Gan's Kfar Maccabiah stadium,
where several million dollars have
been invested in renovations for
the occasion, with a spectacular
show of lasers. The sporting
events themselves are scheduled
to take place in various parts of
the country. The closing
ceremony in Jerusalem's Sultan's
Pool will include a sound and light
show in this picturesque and
popular setting beneath the walls
of the capital's Old City.
Innovations for the 12th Mac-
cabiah include a youth tourna-
ment in which some 300 young
sportsmen will participate in six
events. And thousands of Mac-
cabiah veterans also will be in
Israel for an international con-
ference of those who took part in
the first six Maccabiah games.
The first Maccabiah was held in
1932. Three hundred and nine
athletes came from 17 countries.
The games were such a striking
success that the second Maccabiah
in 1935 attracted 1,700 com-
petitors. These became known as
the "aliyah" games because many
of the participants stayed on in
Palestine, preferring not to return
to a Europe threatened by Hitler.
The next Maccabiah was not un-
til 1950, the first to be held in the
independent State of Israel. But
the halving of entries to 800
reflected the tragedy that had
befallen the Jewish people in the
Holocaust. The number of com-
petitors has steadily climbed since
then 2,700 came in 1977, 3,500
in 1981 and the 4,000 mark will be
topped this year.
Israel, the host country, will
field the largest contingent with
800 athletes, while the smallest
team will come from Monaco,
which is sending a lone represen-
tative. The U.S. will send the most
athletes 503 from a foreign
The Jewish communities from
Zaire, Monaco and Gilbraltar will
make their debut at the games
and Yugoslavia is returning to the
games for the first time in 50
years; the first Eastern Bloc coun-
try to particiapte since World War
The games will be a tribute to
international Jewish unity. Indeed
some pundits feel it is a contradic-
tion in identity for Jews to come
to Israel from the world over to
compete under various flags of
their countries. However, par-
ticipants are housed together
without references to countries of
origin and no sense of national
rivalry is felt in the Maccabiah.
Furthermore, spokesman Zvi
Eyal stresses that the Maccabiah
movement is not about holding a
meet each four years. It is an
ongoing entity. In August 1983
the European Maccabiah was held
in Antwerp, in February 1984
there was a Latin American tour-
nament in Sao Paulo and this com-
ing August the American Mac-
cabiah takes place in Detroit.
Meanwhile, the Maccabiah world
movement is at work everywhere
promoting sport, cultural and
Zionist activity (the movment is
affiliated to the World Zionist
Dr. Israel Reied, Chairman of
the Maccabiah World Union,
describes it as one of the most im-
portant Jewish organizations in
the world. "Through it 300,000
members maintain close ties to
their Jewishness and Israel," he
says. "In some communities
Jewish life revolves around the
Maccabi sports club. In Perth,
Western Australia, all 300
members of the community
belong to the club. Buenos Aires
has five big clubs boasting 20,000
Over the years a gallery of
Jewish sporting "superstars"
have entered the Maccabiah. They
include names like Dutch tennis
ace Tom Okker and the greatest
Olympic sportsman of all time,
Marc Spitz. Many, like Israel's
American-born former basketball
captain Tal Brody, have decided
to make their home in Israel after
experiencing the country during
the Maccabiah. And none other
than President Chaim Herzog
himself was once the Maccabi box-
ing champion of Ireland.
Boxing is no longer among Mac-
cabiah events. A new sport in this
year's games will be hockey, while
other events include rugby, soft-
ball, yachting, karate, judo and
wrestling, as well as track and
field athletics, swimming, basket-
ball and tennis. For the less
physical minded there are bridge
and chess competitions.
In the 1981 Maccabiah, the U.S.
topped the medals table with 73
golds, followed by Israel with 59,
South Africa 14, Britain 10 and
Canada with 9. South Africa
would have done considerably bet-
ter but because the Maccabiah is
recognized by the International
Olympic Committee, South
African sportsmen are banned
from many events.

FAMILY MISSION The South Broward
contingent of the Family Mission to Israel
takes care of the final details at its last
meeting before departing next week. The
Family Mission will get to attend the Mac-
cabiah Games which will begin July 15.
Maccabiah Time Capsule
The Third
The third Maccabiah was
originally scheduled to be held in
1938, but political events in
Europe and Arab violence in
Eretz Israel, as well as the
assumption of the British Man-
datory authorities that the Mac-
cabiah would lead to illegal im-
migration, resulted in the
cancellation of the games. Even-
tually, the Maccabiah did take
place, but this time, as the first
such event since the establish-
ment of the State of Israel. The
year was 1950, and many of the
athletes from Eastern and Cen-
tral European countries had
become victims of the Holocaust.
Eight hundred athletes from 19
countries participated. The games
were held in a new and larger
stadium in Ramat Gan with a
capacity for 50,000 fans. The third
Maccabiah was opened by the
President of the State of Israel,
the late Chaim Weizman, and
since that time each Maccabiah is
opened by Israel's head of state.
At this Maccabiah it was decid-
ed that henceforth all Maccabiah
events are open to all Jewish
athletes and not only those who
are memebers of Macabiah.
The Seventh
The seventh Maccabiah was
held in 1965 and attended by more
than 1,200 athletes from 25 coun-
tries, including Iran, Jamaica,
Peru and Venezuela, who com-
peted in 21 sports.
In advance of this Maccabiah,
the Ramat Gan stadium, built for
the Games in 1950, was complete-
ly renovated, and its capacity in-
creased to 55,000 seats. In addi-
tion, an excellent track and other
facilities for athletic events were
At the same time, the
Municipality of Tel Aviv con-
structed a modern basketball
stadium that served the seventh
Maccabiah also for Boxing and
Judo competitions.
Furthermore, the first Shooting
Money Problems Kill Canal Plan
Mediterranean-Dead Sea canal, a
hydro electric project en-
thusiastically backed by the
former Likud-led government, is
dead. The Ministry of Energy and
Infrastructure concluded last
month that it was no longer feasi-
ble, due In large measure to lack
of funds, and ordered a halt to
preliminary work which has
already cost some $15 million.
The original idea was to use the
more than 1,000-foot drop from
sea level to the Dead Sea to
generate electric power. The
canal was supposed to revolu-
tionize Israel's energy systems.
On that basis, the Israel Bonds
Organization raised substantial
funds overseas.
Fewer Israelis
Going Abroad
economic crisis seems to have an
affect as less Israelis are going
abroad. -Some 42,000 Israelis left
Israel in May, a drop of 22 percent
compared to the same period last
year. This drop was recorded even
before the doubling of the travel
tax to $300, at the end of May. It
is likely that the statistics of this
month will show an* even larger
But Israel's economic crisis
overwhelmed the plans. The $15
million spent was for an ex-
ploratory tunnel in connection
with a proposed power station.
The study required an additional
$2 million which the Energy
Ministry, subject to new
budgetary constraints, refused to
invest. Premier Shimon Peres has
suggested that the monies be
diverted to the development of
two new technological zones, one
in Galilee and the other in the
Range was laid out in Ramat Gan
in accordance with international
rules, as was the formation of the
first Bowling Green in Israel.
The American World Record
holder and silver medalist at the
Olympic Games, Marilyn
Ramenofsky, was the undisputed
winner in her special event (400
meter freestyle swimming) and
then 15-year-old, Mark Spitz,
started his international career at
this Maccabiah by winning three
geld medals.
The Ninth
The ninth Maccabiah held in
1973, took place in the year
following the massacre of 11
Israeli athletes at the Munich
Olympic Games. An overflow
crowd paid silent homage to the
memory of the murdered athletes
at the opening Ceremony of the
Maccabiah, dedicated to the fallen
athletes. The Maccabiah torch was
brought to the stadium by Tal
Brody who, at the eighth Mac-
cabiah, played basketball for the
U.S. and had since come to live in
Israel. He was flanked at the
torch lighting ceremony in the
stadium by Israeli champion run-
ner, Esther Shahamorov, whose
hopes were shattered in Munich,
and Dr. Shaul Ladani, interna-
tional Israeli champion in walking.
A new star was born at the
games among the women swim-
mers. Anita Zamiwiecki, from
Sweden, won gold medals in new
Maccabiah records. A highlight of
the Maccabiah program was
Jerusalem Day which brought the
participants to Israel's capital for
an unforgetable gathering.
Another first in the Maccibiah was
the "Youth Jamboree", where
youngsters from many countries
mixed Israeli counterparts.

mation available from the forensic
examination, these experts have
concluded that the body exhumed
by Brazilian authorities is in fact
Josef Mengele.
"Representatives of the United
States government took part in
the examination of the remains
and concur in the conclusion. It is
my sincere hope that this will be
the final chapter in a tragic and
horrible part of world history. We
should never forget the horrible
crimes," Attorney General Edwin
Meese III said in a statement
issued in Washington.
The medical experts told a news
conference that their evidence
was not based on one test but on
an overwhelming accumulation of
data and the fact that all the
evidence was consistent with the
assumption that the body was that
of Mengele. One test involved
comparing photos of the exhumed
skull with other pictures of the
Nazi war criminal.
Furthermore, beyond the skull
comparison and a comparison of
other areas such as the eyes,
mouth, nose and chin, there was
the fact that the tests discovered
that the bones were of a white
male of medium build between 64
and 74 years of age. The height
was that of a man in life calculated
at 174 centimeters or about 5 feet,
10 inches. Mengele's SS file listed
his height as 175 centimeters. The
body was also right-handed, as
was Mengele.
The experts indicated that den-
tal tests failed to provide con-
clusive evidence that the body was
that of Mengele, although
reconstruction of the jaw and
teeth concluded that the body
found in the grave had a wide
space between the upper incisors
an unusually wide gap that was
one of Mengele's distinctive facial
Nevertheless, Harel of the
Mossad recently told a Voice of
Israel interview that he was not
convinced the exhumed body was
that of Mengele and suggested
that the great effort being ex-
pended to prove that Mengele was
dead was a sure sign that he was
still alive.

Harel asked why the Men|e
family did not come forward to
tell the world that the war
criminal had died in 1979 when
pathologists could have easily pro-
ven the dead man was in fact
Mengele. He also asked why they
decided to confirm the elder
Mengele's death at this time let-
ting Jews and other Nazi hunters
search in vain for Mengele.
The medical report brought to a
conclusion two weeks of intense
investigative efforts and tests by
experts of the body found in Em-
bu under a grave of Wolfgang
Gerhard, the identity that
Mengele is said to have assumed
in 1975 while living in and around
Sao Paulo, sheltered for many
years by two couples. Notebooks
and letters said to have been
Mengele's have been found and
handwriting experts confirmed
that they were authentic.Harel
said in the interview that he
believed efforts to create an im-
pression that Mengele had died
were caused by recent reawaken
ings of public interest in Mengele,
particularly the recent public trial
in Jerusalem.
He said that stories of an inter-
national conspiracy of Nazi war
criminals are a great exaggera-
tion. They tend to live in isolation
in Latin America, he said, in close-
ly guarded homes. "You don't
need an international conspiracy
to make it hard to catch them," he
said. "A local one is sufficient."
Brooklyn District Attorney
Elizabeth Holtzman has said she is
satisfied with reports that
Auschwitz death camp doctor
Josef Mengele is dead, but warned
that "many other Nazi war
criminals are still alive, both here
and abroad, and the world must
not rest until they are brought to
Holtzman, as a member of Con-
gress until 1980, was instrumen-
tal in getting the Justice Depart-
ment to track down Nazi war
criminals living in the U.S.
"My initial reaction is one of
relief that Josef Mengele is no
longer able to enjoy freedom. I'm
disappointed that the world was
never able to bring him to
justice," Holtzman said.

South Broward Students
Send Artwork to Israel
Students at Temple Beth Shalom Day School created 450 pain-
tings, sculptures and collages for South Broward's Project Renewal
town of Hod Hasharon as well as for Ethiopian Jews living in Israel.
The artwork will be brought to Israel by the Family Mission of the
Jewish Federation of South Broward, which leaves July 10.
"We wanted to teach our children that there are many Jews
around the world from many cultures," said Paula Silberberg,
chairperson of the "Art for Friendship" Committee.
Just like an artistic mosaic is made up of different colors, Mrs.
Silberberg said the day school wanted to teach the children that the
Jewish mosaic is made up of different cultures.
"Each is beautiful unto itself but we make up one beautiful culture
of Judaism," she noted.
Mrs. Silberberg explained that by giving the artwork as a gift it
becomes an act of friendship to Israelis, who live in Hod Hasharon,
which is the Project Renewal town supported by the JFSB.
By giving the artwork to Ethiopian Jews, Mrs. Silberberg said,
the South Broward Jewish community is "saying that we accept
them into our Jewish community and we offer our friendship."
Ethiopian Jews for centuries have been persecuted in Ethiopian and
considered outsiders.
The artwork will be distributed to individual children in Hod
Hasharon and to Ethiopian Jews in various absorption centers.
Mrs. Silberberg said she hopes the project leads to a pen pal rela-
tionship not only with Israelis living in Hod Hasharon but also with
Ethiopian Jews.

French Television to
Air Controversial
PARIS, (JTA) The State-
controlled television, reversing an
earlier decision, has announced
that it will screen a documentary
film about an underground
resistance network comprised
mainly of Jewish refugees from
Eastern Europe which fought the
Nazis during the occupation of
France in World War II until it
was "sold out" to the Germans by
the French Communist Party.
The Television Authority decid-
ed to reschedule the film in face of
angry protests that it had given in
to Communist Party pressure
when it cancelled the screeining
last month. The Communists, for
their part, are denouncing the
turn-about, charging it is intended
to "make the people forget the
economic crisis and
unemployment "
The French Communists have
always claimed, not without some
credibility, that they were the
most active resistors to the Nazis.
The film is about a resistance net-
work known as the "Manouchian
Group" named after its leader, an
Armenian refugee. Its members,
most of them Jews, carried out
daring attacks on German troops
in occupied France. They were
eventually arrested and most
were executed. At the time of
their arrest, the group was closely
affiliated with the Communist
Nazi-hunter Serge Klarsfeld,
one of the many Frenchmen who
protested the cancellation of the
film, said the documentary was an
important lesson in history
because it showed "that the Jews
did not walk meekly to their death
but fought back against the

'Murder Libel' Church
Shut Down by Bishop
VIENNA (JTA) Reinhold
Stecher, the Bishop of Tyrol, is
staunchly holding the line against
parishioners who demand the
reopening of a local church that
embodies in its traditions and
decorations the medieval ritual
murder libel against the Jews.
The church, in Rinn, a tiny com-
munity outside Innsbruck in the
Austrian Tyrol, is called Judens-
tein (Jews's Rock). The Catholic
cult that worships there was of-
ficially banned by the Vatican in
1961. But pilgrims continued to
converge on Ruin several times a
Bishop Stecher encountered
fierce protests when he ordered
the church closed. Parishioners
and pilgrims collected more than
3,000 signatures on a petition
demanding its reopening. Several
hundred reportedly threatened to
leave the Catholic Church if the
Bishop refused.
The church in Rinn perpetuates
a legend that Jewish merchants,
in 1462, killed a three-year-old
Christian child, named Andreas or
Anderle, to use his blood for ritual
purposes. There is absolutely no
historic basis for the blood libel
which is depicted in paintings in
the church. Followers of the cult
believe the child Anderle is an in-
termediary in delivering prayers
to God.
Bishop Stecher recently
declared, during a Corpus Christi
procession, that he would not
tolerate the defamation of Jews
and had the church padlocked. He
is standing tough against moun-
ting pressure. Sources close to the
Bishop indicated the church would
remain closed until "certain
circles" demonstrate insight and a
willingness to listen to reason.
According to the Bishop, the
large majority at the-worshippers
are not anti-Semites or neo-Nazis,
though he admits there are such
tendencies in the surrounding
region. He said the legends of
ritual murder by Jews were part
of the centuries-old campaign of
the Catholic Church against Jews
which brought unspeakable sor-
row to the Jews and disgraced
Christians in the judgment of the
Howard Wacks, Philip Weisberg.
The following officers were
elected: Dr. David Sachs, presi-
dent; Norman Ostrau, first vice
president; Elaine Pittell, second
vice president; Steven Fayne,
treasurer; Dee Hahn, secretary.
The Esther Lowenthal Com-
munity Service Award was
presented to Sherwin H. Rosens-
tein, executive director of Jewish
Family Service, for his
distinguished community
Awards also were presented to
the following volunteer workers
of the Medicare Information Ser-
vice in appreciation of their help
and guidance to residents of our
community: Avner Lewis,
Richard Chernok, Frieda Kramer
and Sol Bratt.

Human Error Blamed
for Bus-Train Crash
TEL AVIV (JTA) A commit-
tee established by the Transport
Ministry has stated that human
error was responsible for the June
train-bus collision which took the
lives of 18 school children and
three adults on an outing to a
nature preserve south of Haifa.
The committee's chairman,
Prof. Moshe Livne of the Haifa
Technion's Road Safety Depart-
ment, also faulted the "incorrect
geometry" of the unguarded
railway crossing where the colli-
sion occured as a factor in the
tragedy. His report was submitted
to Transport Minister Haim
While Livne stressed that his
panel's task was not to apportion
blame, the report clearly assigned
culpability to the bus driver, Ruth
Davidoff, 39, a divorced mother of
two, who died in the crash. The
report stated that while the rear-
view mirrors on the bus were not
aligned to give a clear view of the
tracks, the driver would have had
an unobstructed view had she
moved her head slightly The
report also stated that the bus
radio, playing at the time, mav
have masked the whistle of the on-
coming train.
The locomotive engineer of the
Tel Aviv-to-Haifa passenger train
which slammed into the bus was
held blameless. He was travelling
at his authorized speed of 60 mph
and sounded his whistle and ap-
plied his brakes as soon as the bus
came into view, the report said.
But there was insufficient
distance to bring a train at that
speed to a full stop. The
locomotive and the bus both were
in good mechanical order.
The report found that the
railway crossing, one of 300 on
secondary roads in Israel which
have neither gates nor warning
signals, could be improved at a
cost of a few thousand dollars.
The road itself posed a hazard in-
sofar as it made a sharp turn
toward the railroad track.

Modai Says Wage-Freeze Collapsed
Treasury has conceded that its
onomic "package deal" the
^age-price freeze in effect since
Past March has collapsed but did
pot say what will replace it.
Finance Minister Yitzhak Modai
aid on a television interview
[recently that the freeze would not
|be replaced by another similar
|package after its nominal expira-
date at the end of July. He
inted that new economic
heasures would have to be taken
' did not elaborate.
However, Modai made it clear
I that whatever the government
Idoes it intends to control
I economic policy and will not give
its partners, labor and manage-
I ment, the right of veto as has been
the case in the last two package
I agreements.
The current deal, which replac-
ed one instituted in November
11984 that expired in February
1985, was worked out between the
pvernment, Histadrut and the
| manufacturers and employers
associations. It foundered against
new demands for wage and price
hikes by labor and business to off-
set soaring inflation. Those
demands were backed by a recent
r*8" of strikes, work-stoppages,
slowdowns and shutdowns in both
Public and private sector* "
The government is treating the
economic crisis as its top priority.
Gad Yaacobi, the Minister of
Economic Planning, has
presented Premier Shimon Peres
with a 5-year economic program
aimed at vigorous economic
growth by 1990, led by export in-
dustries. But Yaacobi's plan calls
for painful belt-tightening in the
immediate future.
It calls for a 1.9 percent reduc-
tion in public spending over the
next two years, a 5.8 percent
decrease in investment and a 12
percent rise in exports, but a 2
percent decline of living standards
in each of the next two years.
According to the plan, rapid
economic growth will be resumed
in 1987 when the gross national
product will begin to rise at an an-
nual rate of 5.5 percent until 1990.
In this period, exports are ex-
pected to rise at an average an-
nual rate of 13.6 percent and in-
dustrial output by 7 percent an-
nually. The prognosis is based on
the assumption that subsidies for
exports and basic commodities
will be eliminated.
The program was prepared by
the Economic Planning Authority
which Yaacobi heads. Yaacobi, a
Laborite, told reporters he hoped
the government would adopt it
despite the fact that the chief
economic portfolios are held by
Likud ministers. The grave
economic situation demands a
cohesive economic program, not a
system of extinguishing fires here
and there, Yaacobi said.
Israel's Money
Reserves Fall
foreign currency reserves are
dwindling at an average rate of
$115 million per month, Moshe
Mandelbaum, Governor of the
Bank of Israel, reportedly told a
closed meeting of the Knesset's
Finance Committee last month.
The meeting was closed at the
specific request of the Bank of
Israel, the country's central bank.
Several members of the commit-
tee claimed the currency reserves
now stand below the "red line,"
the danger point, although there
have been some differences of opi-
nion on what that line is.
According to figures released
recently, Israel's foreign currency
reserves were slightly more than
$2 billion, a cause for concern. At
the meeting some MKs blasted the
government's economic policies
which they contended contributed
to the dangerous foreign currency

Press Digest
Jewish Nursing Home
Receives Superior Mark
Last month the Southern Lebanese Army held
20 Finnish soldiers of the UNIFIL forces as
hostages, against the release of 11 SLA soldiers
taken by the Amal Shiites after stopping at a
checkpoint manned by the Finns.
An international incident was averted, at the
time, primarily because the UN's secretary-
general managed to maneuver things so that Israel
was able to persuade the SLA to release the Finns,
while everyone involved was able to "save face."
However, in terms of U.S. public opinion, thanks
to the media coverage of the incident, Israel did
not fare well even though it was hardly involved.
So far as the media here was concerned, Israel was
guilty by association, since it backs the Southern
Lebanese Christian militia headed by Gen. Antoine
Lahad. Moreover, the incident was presented as
another example of the lack of reliability or ra-
tionality on the part of the Christian militia
after all, they were the same people who have been
killing the poor persecuted Moslems (Palestinians
or Shiites) whenever they could .
No one on the TV network or the printed press
even questioned the version of the story issued by
the Finn authorities in UNIFIL, and backed by its
commanders, that the SLA soldiers were actually
defectors who gave themselves up to the Shiites.
In Jerusalem, meanwhile, in spite of denials by
Finland, an investigation showed it was more than
likely that the version of the SLA was correct
that the Finns, when taking over a position
evacuated by the withdrawing Israelis on June 6.
disarmed the South Lebanese soldiers and thus
permitted the Amal Shiites to capture them.
Radio Finland, meanwhile, broadcast a report
that among the SLA soldiers guarding the Finns
was also an Israeli officer. Israel's Foreign
Ministry reacted to this report angrily, calling it an
unfounded lie.
V Material from Ha'aretz)
In view of the above, it becomes a little clearer
why Israel's paper reported, a few days ago, that
under no circumstances would Israel agree to
UNIFIL taking over the security job along the
border between Israel and Lebanon. In view of
past experience, and the more than spotty record
of UN-sponsored peace keeping forces, Israel
would be totally stupid to agree to this ..
Remember our previous reports and comments
about ATA? For those who do not ATA is a
pioneer Israeli textile industry, employing nearly
3,000 people, which went into receivership several
months ago. The government has been trying to
find a buyer or devise some plan to salvage the
concern, which is in debt to the tune of more than
$20 million and operates with obsolete equipment;
these efforts were made necessary, paradoxically,
by the economic situation which, though it might
benefit from an increase in unemployment, is bad
enough to produce a major political and social
crisis should unemployment grow appreciably. One
must remember that 3,000 unemployed in Israel is
approximately the equivalent of 160,000
unemployed in the U.S.
Given the strangely government of Likud and
Labor which so many experts predicted would
fall apart many times before now there seems to
be a competition going as to who will save the jobs
of the 3,000 ATA workers. At the moment, the
chief contenders are Trade and Industry Minister
Ariel Sharon, who came up with several potential
buyers (provided the government puts up most of
the money .) and Energy Minister Moshe Shahal
of Labor, who hails from the Haifa area and was,
for many years, a labor leader there, including for
the ATA workers. In any case, the latest arrange-
ment proposed by Sharon, for a consortium of
three investors to take over the plant, guarantee
to export a certain amount over the next three
years and put up several million dollars with the
government putting up $21.5 million and issuing
financial guarantees, appeared to be doomed to
failure because of objections from other ministers
and because it would mean saving only 400 jobs.
MA'ARIV reported recently that for the first
time in the past few months the public support for
the Labor Party under Premier Shimon Peres has
declined while that for the Likud has grown. If
elections were to be held today, according to an in-
dependent study, the Labour-Yahad alignment
would get 53 mandates (compared to 57 in April),
while the Likud would get 30 mandates (29 in
April). The greatest growth in popularity,
however, has been chalked up by Rabbi Kahane's
Kach party (more than five mandates compared to
the single seat in the Knesset it holds), and the
right-wing Tehiya Party which would get nine
seats compared to the five it now holds.
As to Kahane's party, a study by the highly
respected Van Leer Jerusalem Foundation was
reportedly quashed after it indicated that almost
40 percent of Israel's youth (teenagers, up to
military service age) support many of the views
ield by Kahane, and that support for his party
unong them had especially grown. (Reference to
this study was made two weeks ago in an article by
Yosef Goell, in The Jerusalem Poet. More on this
subject will be heard.

Nazi Reunions Causing Controversy
BONN. (JTA) Heinz Galinski.
.hairman of the Jewish communi-
ty in West Berlin, is engaged in ar,
angry public controversy with
Friedrich Zimmermann, Interior
Minister of the Bonn government,
over the annual reunion meeting:
of veterans of Nazi SS divisions
which are allowed in the Federal
Republic although Nazi activities
are banned by law.
The reunions, held in remote
resort villages, attract worldwide
attention to the detriment of West
Germany's image and are often
the scene of protest demonstra-
tions by anti-Nazi groups. Galinski
recently wrote to Zimmermann
asking for legal action to ban the
SS meetings.
The Interior Minister rejected
he idea. He contended, in reply to
(ialinski that the SS veterans
behave properly and in no way
pose a danger to the democratic
system. The Berlin Jewish leader
has now published an open letter
to Zimmermann charging that his
..ttitude encourages old-time
N'azis and neo-Nazis as well.
Galinski also expressed concern
about West Germany's credibility

For the fourth consecutive
year, the Miami Jewish Home and

awarded a superior rating from
the Office of Licensure of the
State of Florida's Department of
Health and Rehabilitative Ser-
vices (HRS).
The Miami Jewish Home is one
of only a handful of nursing homes
in the state to receive this highest
possible ranking.
"The criteria set by HRS con-
sists of 400 minimum re-
quirements that must be met
before HRS's survey team will
consider a facility 'superior', ex-
plained Fred D. Hirt, executive
director. "These requirements are
very rigid, ranging from stan-
dards for food preparation to the
type of cultural and social ac-
tivities planned for the people liv-
ing at a nursing home. We not on-
ly met those requirements, but far
exceeded them."

Lebanon War Costly
Hebrew University economist has
said that the cost of the Lebanon
war was two or two-and-a-half
times higher than the official
figures indicate.
The defense budget places the
cost of the three-year venture into
Lebanon at $1.6-$ 1.8 billion. But
according,to Prof. Haim Barkai,
$4-$4.5 billion is closer to the
He said, at a symposium, that
the cost included about $700
million for military reservists call-
ed to duty and another $100
million in lost tourism. He said the
build-up of the Israel Defense
Force cost tens of millions of i
dollars and was due to a parallel
build-up of the Syrian army I

praised President Reagan for
refusing "to yield to terrorist
demands" and said the hijacking
underscored "the importance of
Israel as our country's strong and
reliable ally in the region."
In a telegram sent to the White
House, Bialkin also condemned
"The cruelty of the terrorists and
the racism and hate that
motivate" the hijackers "in singl-
ing out passengers with so-called
Jewish-sounding names and
holding them separately. We
know that you (Reagan) and all
Americans share our pain over

TWA officials maintained that
the flight attendants aboard the
aircraft tried but failed to
dissuade the hijackers from
separating the passengers from

spokesman said the attendants
were able to convince the hi-
jackers that some of those they
thought were Jewish were either
German or Swedish.

Detractors Mislead Public
on Israel, South Africa Tie
Yarmulke Question
Before High Court
The South African government's apartheid
policies have emerged as a Congressional issue,
with legislation pending in both Houses following
the mass arrests at its embassy here in
Washington, and protests around the country.
There has been ample participation by American
Jewish organizations and prominent individuals in
the attacks on the discriminatory practices of
South Africa in keeping with their previous posi-
tions. However, this has not prevented reckless
charges of Israeli and Jewish support for the
Pretoria government seeking to link the two.
Israel's detractors are continuing to associate
the Jewish State with apartheid by disseminating
inaccurate and misleading information exag-
gerating the ties between the two nations. Allega-
tions of this sort serve the purpose of linking
zionism with racism, thereby justifying pariah
treatment of Israel. Though many countries, in-
cluding our own, maintain diplomatic, economic
and/or military ties with South Africa, Israel has
consistently been singled out and condemned for
its relatively innocuous relations with Pretoria.
As victims of discrimination for centuries, Jews
have demonstrated an instinctive affinity for other
oppressed peoples. Theodore Herzl, the founder of
Zionism, wrote more than 80 years ago that he
would strive to end the oppression of blacks in
Africa. In 1957, still struggling to get on its own
economic feet, Israel started its first aid programs
to Africa, culminating in the early 1970's with ex-
tensive diplomatic, commercial and cultural ties.
Only in 1976 were Israeli-South African diplomatic
relations elevated to the embassy level at a time
when almost all western nations already maintain-
ed full relations. Even when Arab pressure after
the Yom Kippur War precipitated the virtual
cessation of all ties with Black Africa, Israeli
statesmen such as Chaim Herzog, Menachem
Begin, and Yehuda Blum condemned apartheid
strongly, as do Israel's representatives today.
Detractors who focus upon Israeli-South African
trade pay no regard to statistics revealing that
Israel accounts for a minuscule 0.7 percent of
South Africa's exports. The Western industrializ-
ed states remain South Africa's largest trading
partners, and the 46 African states as a bloc rank
as Pretoria's fifth largest partner. Viewed in
perspective, Israeli commerce with South Africa
continues to be minimal, and certainly less than
Arab, Black African, and Soviet Bloc trade with
Pretoria. In this regard, it is interesting to note
that at least three quarters of South Africa's oil
imports come from Arab nations, with oil being the
most vital natural resource lacking in South
Similarly, a widespread misconception centers
around the extent of military cooperation between
the two nations, often abetted by exaggerated
claims including the mind-boggling charge of
nuclear collusion. Israel vocally supported the
unanimous Security Council decision to impose a
mandatory arms embargo against South Africa in
November 1977 and has adhered to it since then.
The major arms purchase from Israel has been
missile boats a weapons system uniquely inap-
propriate for subjugating South Africa's black
population, but one having definite strategic value
in keeping shipping lanes open around the Cape of
Good Hope. Israeli-South African military
cooperation is tiny compared to the trade carried
on with arms exporters in the West, Eastern
Europe and with Arab states a visible example
being Jordanian tanks. France, the largest ex-
porter of major weapons systems to South Africa,
seems almost totally immune from criticism.
As Jews, we find the South African system of
discrimination based on race morally repugnant.
Then-Israeli UN representative Yehuda Blum said
it well before the U.N. General Assembly in
November, 1980, "we would be unfaithful to our
Jewish heritage if we were to leave the slightest
doubt in anybody's mind that we abhor any form of
racism, racial discrimination or humiliation."
And certainly many South African Jews some
120,000 strong have been in the forefront of
liberal movements for many years.
When it comes to a vigorous stand against racial
discrimination both here and abroad, Jews have
nothing to be ashamed of and need not feel any
guilt whatsoever on this score. When 25 rabbis
were recently arrested (and charged, incidentally)
for protesting against Soviet discrimination
against Jews in Russia, it came after a number of
these same rabbis had been arrested in front of the
South African Embassy.
If anything, many American Jews, particularly
jictivists on college campuses, have expended more
energy over the issue of divestment than over any
Jewish or Israel-related subject. And if our co-
religionists in Israel do maintain some links with
South Africa, it could be because Israel's
precarious position does not permit the luxury of
bowing to the whims of critics some of whose
ulterior motives are matched only by their
hypocrisy on this issue.

Supreme Court has agreed to
decide for the first time whether
an Orthodox Jew may wear a yar-
mulke while on duty in any of the
United States armed forces.
The case centers around Rabbi
Simcha Goldman who, while on ac-
tive duty in the U.S. Air Force,
was ordered to remove his yar-
mulke. Chaplain Goldman had
served in the Air Force for three
years when a new base com-
mander ordered him to remove his
skull cap.
Before his stint in the Air
Force, he had served as a chaplain
in the Navy for several years, a
period during which his wearing
his yarmulke was not challenged
by his superiors. After leaving
Navy service, he obtained a doc-
torate in psychology and enlisted
in the Air Force to serve as a
After the warning from the new
base Commander, Goldman filed
suit in the federal district court in
Washington in 1981 and a decision
in his favor was handed down in
1982. A circuit court of appeals
reversed that ruling, upholding
the authority of the Air Force. An
appeal was filed with the Supreme
Court, which is expected to hear
the case during the fall 1985 term.
The defense has been handled
by Nathan Le win, a vice president
of the National Jewish Commis-
sion on Law and Public Affairs
(COLPA). Lewin has argued there
is a constitutional right to wear a
yarmulke under the freedom of
religious expression clause of the
First Amendment, and that this
does not interfere with the
military functions of the wearer.
Lewin declared that th.
Defense Department has arm,*!
^t any variation in the uniformi.
ty of the military dress code would
result in disintegration of morale
and discipline in the armed forces
a position sustained by the aDDeaU
court. "^
Lewin said the case represents.
the broader problem between ex-
ercise of religious belief and laws
which appear to be prohibiting the
exercise of those religious beliefs
He said an important larger ques-
tion is: When does a general
obligation have to yield in the face
of a religious conviction?
Goldman quit the Air Force but
retained reserve status. He is now
a practicing psychologist at
Chabad House in Los Angeles.
Cohen Resigns
son Cohen, Chancellor of the
Jewish Theological Seminary
(JTS) and president of its faculty
since 1972, told the JTS board of
directors that he planned to!
resign and asked the board to]
name his successor.
The Chancellor, who par-1
ticipated strongly in a 10-year
fight to permit women to be
enrolled as candidates in the JTS*
rabbinical school, said he was'
resigning for health reasons. The
first class of women at the rab-
binical school will begin its second
year in September.
Dr. Cohen said he believed his j
health no longer permitted him
'"to give the job the 125 percent \
effort" it deserves. He said hi
plans to remain at the JTS as i
faculty member.

Soviet Jewry update
Soviets Wage 'Vitriolic' Anti-Semitic Campaign
NEW YORK (JTA) An array
of anti-Jewish propaganda, in-
cluding "satirical" cartoons
equating Zionists with Nazis to a
feature-length "documentary"
portraying Jews who wish to leave
the Soviet Union for Israel as
"traitors," was presented recent-

by the National Conference on
Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) and the
Jacob Goodman Institute of the

(ZOA), was described as a
"response to the vitriolic cam-
paign in the USSR which vilifies
the Jewish people, the Jewish
religion, Zionism and the State of

Attorney General Prosecuting Rabbis
Thirty-three Congressmen have
signed a letter addressed to At-
torney General Edwin Meese III
asking him why the U.S. Attorney
for the District of Columbia is pro-
secuting 24 rabbis and one
Lutheran minister who were ar-
rested last month for protesting in
front of the Soviet Embassy.
The letter, which is dated June
11, 1985 and was sent on the sta-
tionery of the House Judiciary
Committee, was signed by the en-
tire committee with the exception
of three members. It asks the At-
torney General why the rabbis and
the minister are being prosecuted.
The 25 men and women were ar-
rested on May 1 and accused of
violating a law which prohibitis
protesting within 500 feet of an
The rabbis, who were protesting
to dramatize the plight of Soviet
Jewry, were using the same
technique which has proved so
successful in the anti-apartheid
protests at the South African Em-
bassy. Whereas more than 2,000
protesters have been arrested at
the South African Embassy on the
same charges as the rabbis, the
U.S. attorney has decided not to
prosecute the South African
The letter said, "these members
of the clergy were protesting the
difficult plight and discriminatory
treatment of Jews in the Soviet
Union. Like the more than 2,000
people who have demonstrated in
front of the South African Em-
bassy, the 24 rabbis and one
Lutheran minister's demonstra-
tion was peaceful and did not
disrupt the conduct of business at
the embassy."
The letter goes on to say, "The
behavior of the protestors at the
South African and Soviet Union
embassies was identical. Absent
of a sound explanation, the deci-
sion to prosecute in these cases
appears to be arbitrary and
discriminatory. Even if the Soviet
Union has requested prosecution,
we believe that the decision who
to prosecute and who not to pro-
secute for exercising their First
Amendment rights to
demonstrate should not depend
upon the requests of represen-
tatives of foreign governments."
The office of the Attorney
General has refused comment on
the Judiciary Committee letter.
Meanwhile, the Rabbinical
Assembly has also sent a telegram
to Meese protesting what the rab-
binical group charged was the
denial of "basic rights" by the
police to a group of 21 rabbis ar-
rested last month outside the
Soviet Embassy.
According to the Rabbinical
Assembly, an organization of
Refugee Status Becomes Issue
Workmen's Circle has called on
Premier Shimon Peres of Israel to
reject an appeal by Leon Dulzin,
chairman of the World Zionist
Organization and Jewish Agency
Executives, that he raise with
President Reagan the issue of de-
nying refugee status to Soviet
Jews who leave the USSR with
Israeli visas but do not settle in
Barnett Zumoff, president of
the Workmen's Circle, said in a
letter to Peres that "the Dulzin
appeal is narrow and assaults the
right of Jews to freely emigrate
wherever they choose."
"We understand fully Dulzin's
concern and even his reasons,"
Zumoff wrote. "At the same time,
Soviet Jews who want to leave
should be able to do so without
moral or legal restraints. Those
who choose to remain should be
able to do so without harassment
or curtailments of Jewish cultural
or religious rights permitted to
other citizens. This has been the
historic and consistent desire of
both Jews and non-Jews concern-
ed with the problem."
He added: "The conscience of
Jews dedicated to rescuing our
less fortunate brothers and sisters
must be united on one thought:
freedom full freedom of
choice to emigrate, to travel, to
Jerusalem Tops Census
TEL AVIV, (JTA) In the 18
years since reunification,
Jerusalem has become the largest
city in Israel with the largest
Jewish population, according to
data released by the Central
Bureau of Statistics.
At the end of 1984, the popula-
tion of Jerusalem stood at 445,000
of whom 320,000 are Jewish and
about 125,000 non-Jewish. The
population of Tel Aviv-Jaffa and
? commuter suburbs Petach
likva, Ramat Gan, Givatayim -
constitute the country's largest
*ban area with a population of
800,000. ^^
Tel Aviv, founded in 1904 by
Jews from the Arab town of Jaffa,
Held for generations the distinc
Pn of being the only all-Jewish ci-
ty m the world and was by far the
largest city in Israel when in-
dependence was declared in 1948.
The incorporation of Jaffa into the
municipality deprived it of its all-
Jewish status.
The population of Haifa has
been declining since 1979 and now
numbers fewer than 225,000. This
may be due in part to the decline
in sea travel. During the heyday of
the ocean liner Haifa was Israel's
chief port of entry for tourists and
business travellers. Now virtually
all travellers arrive and depart by
According to the Central
Bureau, Israel has 11 cities with
more than 100,000 population.
The country's urban population
totaled 1,928,000 at the end of
1984, 46 percent of the national
1,200 Conservative rabbis, the 21
rabbis arrested on June 10 were
incarcerated for six hours and
were not allowed to meet with
their lawyers for five hours.
"They were also denied the right
to make telephone calls, have food
or water, or decent bathroom
facilities," the telegram said.
"Moreover, many of these
leaders in their 60s were forced to
remain standing for a three-hour
stretch while kept in a tiny cage,"
the telegram said. "These men
suffered the indignity of body
searches and were kept in a cage
with drunks and drug addicts
while incarcerated in the

"We strongly object to this
denial of basic rights to a group as
distinguished and significant as
these 21 rabbis. Furthermore, we
vow to promote additional
peaceful demonstrations and ar-
rests if necessary until Soviet
Jews will be allowed the freedoms
guaranteed in the Helsinki
The telegram was signed by
Rabbi Alexander Shapiro, presi-
dent of the Rabbinical Assembly,
and Rabbi Allan Meyerowitz,
Soviet Jewry chairman of the
chaired the symposium.
"It reverberates with familiar
themes geared toward
discrediting individual refuseniks
and Soviet Jews as a whole, and
delegitimizing Israel as the
historic Jewish homeland," Stern-
stein added.
The symposium, held at the
Jacob and Libby Goodman ZOA
House here, opened with a screen-
ing of "Hirelings and Ac-
complices," a 27-minute
"documentary" broadcast on Len-
ingrad television in November
The film seeks to unfold a
Zionist "conspiracy" operating in
concert with the Central In-
telligence Agency and influential
"powerbrokers" of the American
Jewish community, according to
the NCSJ. One segment of the
film focuses on several leading
Soviet Jewish activists, identified
as "traitors who betray their
country in return for material
rewards from the West"
Sternstein described the film as
a "quasi-documentary, which
vividly reflects the Soviet pro-
paganda line equating Soviet
Jews who seek to emigrate with
anti-Soviet behavior." ,
A resolution was approved at
the symposium urging the "Anti-
Zionist Committee of the Soviet
Public," a government-sponsored
group which has figured pro-
minently as an outlet for Soviet
anti-Jewish propaganda since its
inception in April 1983, to "stop
the spread of lies and group
hatred as a violation of interna-
tional law and standards."
The resolution also deplored the
Committee's "constant campaign
of slander as a serious threat to
Refusenik Women
write of suffering
Eighty women refuseniks,
many of whom have never before
signed a protest, have addressed a
special appeal to the International
Conference of Women's Organiza-
tions due to take place in Nairobi
this month. The letter states:
"We are women refuseniks as
we are called in the USSR. We,
our husbands, children, parents
have been refused emigration
from the USSR to Israel, the
country which we all consider our
own. Along with receiving
refusals we are deprived of nor-
mal life, of a safe future, of the
possibility of bringing up our
children under normal conditions.
Our hearts are filled with anxiety.
We are worried about those who
are close and dear to us.
"As a rule, after we apply, both
our husbands and we, ourselves,
lose our jobs. Then our husbands
work as caretakers and wat-
chmen, but this is not the greatest
threat which our husbands and
sons face. They are threatened
with prison, with physical
reprisals; they are thrown into
prisons and camps on false accusa-
tions. We live in an atmosphere of
constant threat
"From the age of three, our
children know that there is one
world around them of their family
and friends, and that there is
another hostile world of
strangers. Our children ask us
questions which we are unable to
answer. 'Why are we not allowed
to leave for Israel? Why are we
called 'refuseniks'? Why should
we never mention that we study
and know Hebrew? Why did
mother or father lose their job?'
"Their words bring tears of
despair to our eyes. What pitiful
and grown-up questions they are
asking. We are afraid that they
may fear for our future. We never
know what kind of misfortune can
befall our family the next day.
Which of us will watch his apart-
ment being searched, and whose
children will not ask, 'What are
they doing in our apartment?'
'Have they lost anything here?'.
"And we watch in fear as people
are turning everything upside
down in our homes in search of
Hebrew books and textbooks, and
we shall wonder whether they
shall plant narcotics or guns.
What may the head of a family be
accused of? Will he really be taken
away to prison? We are afraid to
pronounce the word 'prison' in our
homes with the children present.
They know prisons are for
criminals. How can we explain to
them that their fathers are not
criminals, that their only fault is
that they want to remain Jews,
and want to leave for Israel.
"We don't know what the
future will bring for us. Perhaps
for a long time to come we shall
live with hope for the better. We
constantly turn to the authorities
with the request to let us depart,
which is only met with reprisals.
We appeal to you. We know about
your struggle for equality and the
happiness of women. We hope you
will hear our appeal in the year
when the world is observing the
40th Anniversary of the Victory
over Fascism. Ours is the voice of
the women who belong to the peo-
ple who lost so many sons and
daughters in the 20th Century.
Help Us."
the status and security of Jews
everywhere" and pledged to fur-
ther "expose the heinous anti-
Jewish campaign in the Soviet
Union," calling upon Western
public opinion and governments to
do the same.
A personal account of Soviet
anti-Semitism was provided
through a videotaped interview
with Alexandra Finkelshtein, a
former refusenik who, after a
12-year struggle, was permitted
to emigrate to Israel in December
Participants at the symposium
sought to examine the effect of
anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic pro-
paganda on Jews and non-Jews in
the USSR and beyond Soviet
borders, as well as the historic and
current perspectives of anti-
Jewish sentiments.
Refuse n&
ingrad refusenik Roald
Zelichonok, was arrested last
month and charged with "defam-
ing the Soviet state," in reaction
to appeals and letters he wrote to
the West including a recent plea
to participate in the Human
Rights Expert Conference in Ot-
tawa, according to the Coalition to
Free Soviet Jews.
Zelichonok, an electrical
engineer and Hebrew teacher who
has been active in pro-emigration
and Jewish culture circles since
1978, had encountered harass-
ment by the KGB beginning in
1980 when he was ordered to stop
teaching Hebrew, the Coalition
said. The 48-year-old refusenik
has continually been persecuted.
Jewish books and private letters
have been confiscated from his
home. An anti-Zionist documen-
tary being aired in Leningrad last
November accused Zelichonok of
taking bribes from "Zionist"
tourists from abroad.
Herbert Kronish, chairman of
the Coalition, said: "The pace of
arrests and imprisonment is in-
creasing at a frightening level,"
with Hebrew teachers bearing the
brunt of the imprisonments.
"When coupled with the bleak
emigration figure of 51 for May,"
Kronish noted, "it becomes clear
that the Soviet government is
waging a brutal battle against
Jewish religion, culture and
NEW YORK, (JTA) Kharkov
Jewish activist Evgeny Aisenberg
was convicted of "defaming the
Soviet State" and sentenced to
two and a half years in a labor
camp, the Coalition to Free Soviet
Jews reports. Aisenberg, 33, had
been intensely involved in study-
ing and teaching Hebrew and
Jewish culture since 1978, when
his pro-emigration activities led
him to lose his job as a mechanical
The major evidence used
against him was the text of three
Purim skits which he participated
in last year. Aisenberg will be
forced to leave his wife, Marina,
who has breast cancer and re-
quires surgery.
"Once again, the mere obser-
vance of Jewish holidays is inter-
preted by the Soviet government
as 'circulating false fabrications
against the State,' said Coali-
tion chairmen Herbert Kronish.
"The real fabrication, however, is
the charge of slander. A Purim
skit is simply not a defamation of
the Soviet Stat* "
