NEW YORK (JTA) Twelve major na-
tional Jewish organizations have joined in
vehemently denouncing Rabbi Meir
Kahane, the leader of the Kach Party in
Israel, calling his policies "racism,"
"demagoguery," and "a perversion of
Jewish religious, ethical, and traditional
values and practices."
The joint statement was issued hours
before Kahane was scheduled to arrive
here from Israel for a month-long visit to
the United States. The Kach Party ad-
vocates ousting all Arabs from Israel and
has used violent tactics to express its
The statement, which strongly decries
the tactics, views and goals of Kahane,
declares that he "is not representative of
American Jewry, (and) more fundamen-
tally, his words and actions are alien to
Judaism." The national organizations that
signed the statement were the American
Jewish Committee, American Jewish
Congress, B'nai B'rith, Anti-Defamation
League of B'nai B'rith, Hadassah, Jewish
Labor Committee, Jewish War Veterans
of the U.S.A., National Council of Jewish
Women, Union of American Hebrew Con-
gregations, United Synagogue of
America, Women's League for Conser-
vative Judaism, and Women's American
Noting that the signers "represent the
overwhelming majority of America's
organizationally affiliated Jews," the
statement, alluding to recent press
reports that "Kahaneism" was becoming
an "epidemic" in Israel, says:
"We do not dismiss the findings of polls
that, under unrelenting economic,
military, political, and terrorist pressure,
'Kahaneism' has found a few more sym-
pathetic listeners ... But to confuse this
still isolated virus with an epidemic
threatening Israel's vibrant democracy is
to misconstrue the phenomenon and exag-
gerate its threat far beyond its troubling
but limited dimensions.'

statement continues, "have been em-

Hollywood Family Mission a Major Success
Editor for the
Jewish Federation of
Soata Broward
In simple language, the
Fifth Hollywood Family
Mission to Israel was a
smashing success.
It was a success emo-
tionally for the more than
100 South Broward
And the mission raised
more than $250,000 for the
1986 Campaign, making it
the most successful Family
Mission ever. Dr. Howard
Barron, campaign chair-
man, told the Floridian.
Dr. Barron said the
$250,000 represented a 40
percent increase for the mis-
sion participants.
"The caucus that we had
was phenomenal. Virtually
every family got up to
"Most people were very
emotional about what Israel
meant to them and their
families. And how they
want to come back to South
Broward and get more in-
volved in the Federation,"
he added.
What helped make the
Family Mission a success
was an innovative itinerary.
"The itinerary was
fabulous. We did a lot of
new and interesting
things," Dr. Barron said.
For example, the Family

Games and saw local swim-

leaders still have time to at-
tend the 54th General
Assembly for the Council of
Jewish Federations.
. "It is the largest and most
impressive gathering of
Diaspora Jewry outside of
Israel. We need to send as
""any leaders from South
Broward as we can," Dr.
Saul Singer, president of
the Jewish Federation of
South Broward, said.
Dr. Singer said the
General Assembly will offer
informative seminars on
many of the crucial issues
facing the Jewish communi-
ty today.
The theme of the General
Assembly, scheduled for
Nov. 13-17 in Washington,
D.C., is "The Coming of
Age of North American
Jewry: Strengthening Our
Jewish Affirmation."
Issues which will be ad-
dressed at the General
Assembly include:
The Jewish role in the
American and Canadian
political process.
The search for peace in
the Middle East.
The plight of Soviet
Jewish education
building our future.
European Jewish Com-
munities: Four Decades

Strengthening the
Jewish family.
The changing impact of
religion in North American

dic Jewry.

Hadassah Hospital Holds Special Family Memory
for the Jewish Federation
of South Broward
Hadassah Hospital holds a
special memory for Dr. Saul
Singer's family.
Dr. Singer, president of the
Federation, visits the synagogue
at Hadassah Hospital every time
he goes to Israel.
This summer Dr. Singer and his
son Steven visited the synagogue
while attending the Fifth Annual
Family Mission. They shared a
moving moment together in the
synagogue under the images cast
by the 12 Marc Chagall stained-
glass windows.
But as beautiful and special as
the Chagall windows are and
they attract 1,000s of tourists

"It was heartwarming to

Dr. Singer added: "No
visit would be complete
without a visit to the Ann
Gilbert Park in Gil Amal
where the flowers were in
full bloom."
The Family Mission also
took advantage of two
"home hospitality" pro-
grams during which they
met and talked with Israelis
in Herzilya and on a moshav
outside of Naharia. They
talked about the social,
economic and political situa-
tions in the country.
Dr. Singer met one par-
ticularly forthright Israeli
on the moshav with a
staightforward message to
American Jews.
The Israeli told Dr. Singer
that the day he sees the
Arabs stronger than the
Jews in Israel "he's getting
the hell out because he will
not see his children
"He asked American
Jewry to help keep Israel
stronger than her enemies,"
Dr. Singer added.
The mission also provided
an emotional moment for
Dr. Barron, who has visited
Israel 11 times. This was the
first time Dr. Barron visited
Israel with his family.
"The day of the caucus the
mission visited Mount Herzl
and Yad Vashem. I came

Sam learned about
The GUARDIAN PLAN, program and
changed his mind about
buying cemetery property in Florida.
Like your family. Sams 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 Jewish funeral

Leadership Mission promises to
be one of the most extraordinary
trips the Jewish Federation of
South Broward has ever
Just a few openings remain for

Dr. Saul Singer, president of
the Federation, and Dr. Howard
Barron. campaign chairman, will
be among the almost 50 South
Broward residents who will travel
to Prague, Budapest and Israel.
The mission participants will learn
about Jewish history as well as the
problems facing the Jewish people
and Israel in today's world.
The mission will first travel to
Prague, which was city spared the
destruction suffered by other
cities of Central Europe during
World War II. It was the center of
uropean Jewish life and the
Yecious Legacy remains as a
testament to this former glory.
The Precious Legacy is housed
in the State Jewish Museum in
Prague. It is one of the most im-
portant collections of Judaica in
the world, a treasure of cultural
and religious artifacts represen-
ting the oldest continuous Jewish
community in Europe.
Another highlight in Prague is
the Klaus Synagogue, the largest
of the surviving ghetto
synagogues. The Klaus
Synagogue was founded at the
end of the 16th century by the
famed Rabbi Judah Loew, and
rebuilt in 1694.
It was in this building that the
Nazis assembled tens of
thousands of Jewish ritual objects
books, Torah Scrolls and other
items from the 168 synagogues
they destroyed in Bohemia,
Moravia and Slovakia. This was to
be the basis for a proposed inter-
national Jewish museum of an ex-
tinct people.
Instead, the Klaus Museum now
houses an exhibit called "Crimes
Not Forgotten," which consists of
documents, films, photographs
and other evidence of Nazi crimes
in Czechoslovakia.
Budapest will be the second stop
on the Leadership Mission.
Budapest is a city where Jews
were an important part of its
economic growth and cultural
Trade Balance Improves
Central Bureau of Statistics has
reported that the improvement in
Israel's trade balance was conti-
nuing, citing a drop (during the
first seven months of this year) in
Israel's trade deficit of 35 per-
cent, compared to the deficit in
the second half of last year.
The bureau reported that the
deficit totalled $1,148.8 million,
compared to $1,753 million during
the second half of 1964. Overall
imports dropped by 7.5 percent
and exports have been stable, the
bureau reported, while imports of
consumer goods dropped by 9 per-
cent. The bureau said about one-
third of the fall in the trade deficit
was credited to a drop on the im-
port of oil products, since Israel is
reportedly dipping into its oil
Officials said the foreign trade
figures were the latest in a series
of positive indicators boosting the
government's claims that its
economic austerity program was
Imports between January and
July totalled $4,549 million while
exports in the same period were
$3,407 million, an increase of 7.6
percent over the corresponding
1984 period.
In a related economic policy
development, the Histadrut,
Israel's powerful labor federation,
and the government agreed in
principle to speed up dismissal of
government workers. But a grow-
ing resistance to this agreement
was reported among civil service
workers organizations.
The negative worker's reaction
led Treasury officials to express
concern that the dismissals in
Israel's huge bureaucracy might
be hard to implement. Observers
said that the Clerical Workers
Union and the Civil Servants
Union were likely to ignore the
dismissal agreement.
Terms of the agreement con-
firmed government goals to cut 3
percent of public work force
some 7,000 workers off the
public payroll, implemented in ac-
cordance with present labor pacts.
Officials said this meant that
those listed for dismissal will
benefit from further negotiations
and not be laid off at the sole
discretion of the government.
Compensation for laid off civil ser-
vice workers also will be
negotiable, officials said.

Dr. Stein was one of the founders of Young Israel of Hollywood

He was a deeply observant Jew who actively supported Jewish
education. He was a member of the Board of Directors of the

que and beautiful sights the people atten-
ding the Prague-Budapest-Israel Mission
will get to view.
Today, only 80,000 Jews out of
the 200,000 who once lived there
remain in Budapest.
In Budapest another highlight is
the Great Synagogue which was
consecrated in 1859. It is the
largest synagogue in Europe.
The huge structure has four
balconies and can seat more than
3,000 people. It has a giant 5,000
pipe organ on which Franz Liszt
and Saint-Saens played some of
their compositions.
During the Nazi occupation the
synagogue was surrounded by a
wooden fence, thus creating a
Budapest ghetto. The synagogue
itself became a concentration
camp as well as the spiritual focus
of the beleaguered Jewish
In the courtyard of the
synagogue, there is a memorial
plaque to Hanna Szenes,

Yugoslavia where she was assign-
ed to rescue prisoners and

4 The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-HoOywood/Friday, August 30, 1985
Seniors Hit
Hard in Israel

Jews: A Divided Nation?
In place of the usual "digest," the
Floridian is running the enclosed
article contributed by LAUREN
AZOULAI. The item speaks for
itself most eloquently, both as a
news feature and an editorial.
The ongoing economic crisis in
Israel and the most recent reduc-
tion in subsidies and increases in
prices have suddenly made life ex-
tremely difficult for certain
groups of people there. For exam-
ple, a large family, in which two
breadwinners are salaried, blue-
collar workers, is finding it nearly
impossible to make ends meet.
Then, of course, there are the
unemployed a growing
phenomenon in Israel's desperate
economic conditions.
But one of the groups so often
forgotten is Israel's elderly
population. There are the more
"fortunate" ones, whose other-
wise meager income is sup-
plemented by war reparations
from Germany a steady income
which has previously sup-
plemented a salary and enabled
them to live a little better. There
are also those whose pensions
from years of work in one com-
pany keep them going. But there
are many more senior citizens
who depend on Israel's National
Insurance (Social Security) as
their only source of income. Par-
ticularly hard hit are those who
are single and have only one Na-
tional Insurance check to cover
the rent and basic utilities.
A glaring example of this dif-
ficult situation was found by the
local executive director of the
American Friends of Tel Aviv
University, Lauren Azoulai. Dur-
ing a recent visit to Israel, she had
occasion to meet some residents
of the adult congregate living
facility (Malben) jointly sponsored
by Joint Distribution Committee
and Amidar (a quasi-
governmental housing agency.
This facility was described in a
previous issue of The Floridian.)
Many of the residents are widows
and widowers, and a large number
made aliya from North Africa and
Asia, at a time when beginning a
new life in Israel carried many
hardships which prevented them
from ever "making" it in Israel.
They do not have the benefits of
work pensions or war reparations.
The case in point was Sarah
Cohen (a fictitious name). Mrs.
Cohen immigrated to Israel in
1953 from Morocco with her hus-
band and seven children. The
family lived in a tent in a transit
camp for immigrants for a year. It
was there that the eighth child
was born. Mrs. Cohen had one
more child two years later when
the family was settled on a
moshav (farming community) for
new immigrants in the Negev. Six
months later, when the baby was
six months old and the eldest son
was 16, Mr. Cohen became ill and
Eventually, the Cohen family
left the moshav and was set up in a
one-bedroom apartment in the
Katamon. section of Jerusalem
(which today is being renovated
through the efforts of Project
Some of the older children had
already been sent by the Jewish
agency to live on kibbutzim. To
support herself and the little ones,
Sarah Cohen became a
"metapelet," Israel's version of
the nanny. Obviously, none of the
families for whom she worked set
up pension plans for her. Unfor-
tunately, she was using the only
marketable skill she had, taking
good care of children!
Her diligence as a good Jewish
mother proved successful. She
raised nine children, all of whom
. have become good citizens, served
(and continue to serve) in the
Israel Defense Forces, and are
making a living enough to care
for the needs of their families.
Mrs. Cohen has already been
blessed with 28 grandchildren and
three great-grandchildren a
wonderful contribution to Israel's
Two years ago, already retired,
Sarah Cohen was asked if she
would like to move into the new
adult congregate living facility in
one of Jerusalem's suburbs. It
meant giving up her rent-free,
one-bedroom apartment in
Katamon and going into a low-
rent studio apartment; but she
and her children all agreed that
she would feel safer and less lone-
ly if she moved. Although paying
the rent was difficult for her, with
some Help from her children, her
increased living expenses were
met, until recently.
In early July, all the residents of
the Malben facility received a
notice stating the rent was in-
creasing considerably. Her mon-
thly expenses would now so far
exceed her meager income, that
even with the help from her
children, she may not be able to
continue living in the adult facili-
ty. Her average monthly ex-
penses, excluding food and local

The move toward greater
polarization and increased in-
terdenominational delegitimation
is not merely leading to a
catastrophe of social division. It is
strategically, morally, and
theologically wrong.
America is the most open socie-
ty in human history. Everyone is
exposed to varied alternative
lifestyles. All people face the
challenge of choice in which in-
dividuals can define their own
values and existence. In such an
environment, the more varieties
of Jewish living that the communi-
ty can offer, the greater the
number of people who will choose
each individual variety. Each
group is strengthened by the
greater effectiveness of the other.
Each group should be building up
the other, for its own sake as well
as for the greater good of clal
When the Conservative and
Reform movements grow
stronger, Orthodoxy gains. The
baal teshuva (returnee) movement
has given numerical gains and a
great psychological lift to the Or-
thodox community. Most of the
baalei teshuva are recruited not
from those who are totally out of
Jewish life, but from those outside
of Orthodoxy. Most of the people
available to become baalei teshuva
come from movements nearby on
the spectrum. In other words,
when Conservative and Reform
generate young people with
greater Jewish commitment or
with different religious needs
than their parents, some of them
join the pool of Orthodox
returnees. Others stay and
strengthen their own movement.
As Conservative and Reform
lay people have developed
stronger Jewish commitments in
the past two decades, they have
become consumers of day school
education for their children. Thus,
they provide many jobs and oppor-
tunities for influence to Orthodox
rabbis; for the Orthodox still run
the majority of the day schools. As
the respect for tradition en-
dangered by Conservative and
Reform rabbis has deepened
among their laymen, they have in-
creasingly supported Orthodox in-
stitutions. In the past, if a Reform
Jew was busy assimilating, he
would cross the street to avoid
meeting a Hasid. Now, Reform
and Conservative money fuels the
remarkable growth of Lubavitch.
Indeed, there is hardly a major na-
tional Orthodox institution that
can survive without the financial
support of Conservative and
Reform Jews. Logically, then, the
Orthodox should pray every day
for the health and welfare of the
Conservative and Reform
movements. But that is not the
way that it is going.
As Orthodox effectiveness rises,
it gives greater strength to the
Conservative and Reform
movements. The day schools are
primarily built, supported, and
run by the Orthodox. Yet, outside
of New York, the significant ma-
jority of day school students come
from Conservative, Reform, and
secular homes. Indeed, the Or-
thodox day schools are training
the future lay leadership of the
Conservative and Reform
movements as well as Federa-
tion although for the moment
they are not expressing pride in
that truth. The presence on col-
lege campuses of Orthodox youth
wearing kipot provides Jewish
models and helps change the
assimilated tone of the university.
Rabbi Irving Greenberg
Chabad houses have had a special
success in reaching out to Jewish
children in trouble, on drugs, etc.,
many of them from non-Orthodox
homes. And for the children of
Conservative, Reform, and
secular homes who seek a mystical
religious approach, with strong
authority and discipline, it is im-
portant that there be a Lubavitch
or yeshiva option. In an open
society, the alternative solution to
such unmet needs could well be
Reverend Moon, Jews for Jesus,
or Hare Krishna.
Thus, each movement
strengthens the others with its
own strength which in turn
strengthens the entire Jewish
community. In contrast, a social
split would lower the numbers
available to each group. In many
cases, reducing the number below
a certain critical mass will weaken
the capacity of the community to
support needed institutions for all
the groups. A Jewish civil war will
undoubtedly lead to an increase in
intermarriage and other negative
social phenomena.
Delegitimation of the other
denominations diverts each one
from facing its own real issues.
When the Orthodox totally deny
Conservative and Reform, they
can dismiss the women's question
as something which has been rais-
ed by the non-Orthodox and
therefore illegitimate. This
distracts the Orthodox from fac-
ing the challenge of inequities in
halacha, such as in divorce, and
from facing the fact that they
have not fully incorporated 50
percent of the talent and religious
potential of their community.
When the Conservative and
Reform define their own
legitimacy by dismissing the Or-
thodox, they end up defining suc-
cess as breaking with the rigidity
of the past. Thus, for example,
translating prayers into English is
mistakenly believed to solve the
problem of worship. They fail to
face the fundamental problem of
prayer, of modern man's dif-
ficulties with prayer, and of how
we can pray out of power as we
have prayed out of powerlessness.
To solve their internal pro-
blems, each group needs the help
and presence of the other. The
Conservative and Reform
movements desperately need
more discipline, more ability to de-
mand from their lay people a
deeper sense of tradition. The rab-
bis who see this need are
frustrated by the limited response
of their lav people. The best way
to get the lay people to grow is by
having them relate to models from
the other groups. Out of sym-
pathetic contact with an Orthodox
family, Conservative and Reform
Jews are more likely to experience
the beauty of Shabbat or the
strength of the family yom tov and
are far more likely to begin such
observations themselves.
The Orthodox community needs
more capacity to respond sen-
sitively and effectively to contem-
porary urgencies. It needs to be
helped to focus on social action
and the call to justice. It needs
help in enriching the spirituality
of its lay people, as against ex-
cessively mechanical observance
in which the spiritual forest is lost
for the trees of details. One of the
best ways Orthodox lay people
could be encouraged in these
directions would be from contact
with simpatico Conservative and
Reform Jews who are active in
these areas. Ideally, Jews from all
denominations should gather
together for weekends and for
chances to exchange agendas and
understanding. But this is not
possible with the present mood of
alienation and separation.
The greatest evil resulting from
a split could well show up in a
moral side effect. We learned in
the Holocaust that spiritual
distance from others and lack of
respect for their religion
translated into moral indifference
to their fate. This is why so few
Christians helped Jews. Will
separated Jews stand idly by the
blood of other Jews when they are
in danger? Would each group
repeat the erroneous attitude of
native French Jewry towards
"Ostjuden" in 1939-40? Under the
Vichy regime, the native French
Jews were tempted to accept the
round-up of "stateless Jews"
(read: Ost juden).
Instead of separating, Jews
should be binding themselves to
each other as closely as possible,
lest one group be tempted into in-
difference to the otberla fate. Bah-
bi Joseph SbroVeitcMrTprodaimea
this insight decades ago in his
classic essay Kol Dodi Dofek. But
the Orthodox movement has failed
to translate this mandate into
halachic behavior.
Theologically, the separation of
the Jewish people is an outrage.
We live after the Holocaust and
the rebirth of Israel. Clearly, the
overwhelming message of those
two events is the unity of the
Jewish people the unity of fate
which Rabbi Solveitchik has
described as brit goral the cove-
nant of common fate. There were
no distinctions in the gas
chambers. To elevate the distinc-
tions between Jews to absolute
status is to deny the truth that all
Jews carry the fate of the cove-
nant, or run the risks of suffering
for it. All Jews are God's
Israel represents Jewish unity.
It was built by religious and
secular Jews alike. Israel is sup
ported by Orthodox, Conser-
vative, Reform, and Reconstruc-
tionist alike. Israel is the great
symbol that the covenant of the
Jewish people still lives. To
separate now is like living through
the Exodus and going on with
business as usual. A community
guilty of such ingratitude and
spiritual hard-heartedness can on-
ly fail religiously. Israel's redemp-
tive significance should be
translated into common holidays
and celebrations, unifying prac-
tices and concrete efforts to
bridge religious gaps between all
the groups. ,

Israel's Declaration of Independence
proclaims equal rights to all "irrespective
of religion, race or sex."
Israel's President, Chaim Herzog,
when meeting with the political leaders
whose parties won Knesset seats,
"pointedly refused to meet with Kahane,
whose ideology he considered repugnant
to (Israel's) democratic principles ..."
On July 31st the Knesset unanimously
passed a bill banning from parliamentary
elections any party that "incites people to
racism or negates Israel's democratic

private sector are intensifying their ongo-

between Arabs and Jews, as have many of
the organizations" signing the joint
"Ironically, it was Israel's tradition of
democracy that enabled Kahane to run for
his current seat in the Knesset, since he
was ruled off the ballot and subsequently
restored by a judgment of Israel's
Supreme Court. In several previous at-
tempts to attain office in Israel, he had
failed. Finally gaining a seat, Kahane
received only 26,000 votes, barely one
Israeli vote in a hundred ..."
The statement concludes: "We reject
(Kahane's words and actions) and what
they stand for; we reject this affront to
our history, to our tradition and beliefs,
and to our abiding commitment to peace
and brotherhood."
In a related event, a public opinion poll
taken by the Pori Research Institute and
published in Haaretz shows that 10.6 per-
cent of those who voted for the Likud in
the last Knesset elections would now cast
their ballots for Kahane's extremist Kach
The poll showed that while Labor and
its supporters would maintain their ma-
jority, winning 36.1 percent of the vote
down slightly from the 37.1 percent gain-
ed in the elections the Likud would
decline from 31.9 percent at the elections
to 22.8 percent today.
Rightwing parties Kach and Tehiya
would increase their strength from 5.2
to 16 percent. The main increase would be
in the Kach Party, jumping from 1.2 per-
cent at the voting over a year ago to 9 per-
cent today. Tehiya would increase from 4
percent to 7 percent.
But another poll published in Maariv
and taken by the Modi'in Ezrachi In-
stitute shows little change during the past
two months. This poll gives the Labor
Alignment 53 seats if elections were held
now, the Likud 30, Tehiya seven and
Kach five seats. Other parties would hold
their present representation, with very
minor differences.

Soviet Jewry Update______
Hebrew Teacher Convicted
NEW YORK (JTA) Roald Zelichonok, a
49-year-old Hebrew teacher from Leningrad
who has sought to emigrate to Israel since
1979, has been sentenced to three years in a
labor camp on charges of allegedly "defam-
ing the Soviet state and social system," it
was reported here by the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ).
Material cited as evidence in the case
against Zelichonok included an interview he
had given to a Canadian tourist, as well as
"letters written to policy makers in the
West" which contained information about
the Soviet Union.
The one-day trial, during which Zelichonok
was permitted to speak freely with his wife,
Galina, and his friend, Vladimir Lifshits, was
termed by the NCSJ as "surprisingly liberal
and democratic" as compared with the usual
Soviet legal proceedings. However, the pur-
pose of the three-year sentence was ap-
parently meant to intimidate Jewish ac-
tivists, and to convince them that speaking
to the West does not pay off, the NCSJ said.
Only days before his arrest, Zelichonok
had issued critical public statements to the
Deputy Director of the Leningrad Post Of-
fice and the Head of the Foreign Relations
Department at the USSR Ministry of Com-
munications. In a detailed account, he called
the persistent Soviet interference with his
mail a "very grave violation of internal and
international law."
Among the letters used as a pretext
against Zelichonok is one addressed to
Israel's President Chaim Herzog. Asked dur-
ing the pre-trial investigation how one's
private letters can be used as evidence
against him, the Leningrad Deputy Pro-
curator responded that "writing to a friend
may be private, but not so writing to the
President of Israel."
Zelichonok is the eighth Soviet Jewish
Hebrew teacher to be imprisoned since June
1984 in an ongoing crackdown which the
U.S. State Department had condemned as
"a tragic and needless obstacle to construc-
tive relations between the U.S. and the

Smith Supports Ethnic
Programs For Soviet Jews For Soviet Jews
The House recently passed the
1985 State Department authoriza-
tion bill which includes a provi-
sion, authored by Congressman
Larry Smith (D-Hollywood), that
requires Radio Liberty to
strengthen current programming
dealing with issues of concern to
Jewish audiences in the Soviet
Union. The provision also calls for
the creation of a task force to
study the feasibility of increasing
even more, the number of broad-
casts targeted at Soviet Jews. The
passage of the bill coincided with
the 10th anniversary of the
Helsinki Accords.
"I have always been strongly
committed to human rights and
Soviet Jewry," said Smith. "In
these times of tight budgets, an
increase in existing programming
will get the most for our tax
dollars. My measure is a concrete
proposal which will do more for
human rights than rhetoric and lip
The task force, to be set up and
run by Radio Liberty personnel,
will first investigate the needs of
Jewish audiences in the USSR, in-
cluding the needs of the activist
and refusenik populations. It will
then investigate whether the cur-
rent Russian-language program-
ming, to be known as "Maccabee
programming," is fulfilling the
needs of Jewish audiences and if
not, whether expanded program-
ming should include broadcasts on
Jewish history, culture, and
religion in Russian, Hebrew, and
Yiddish. A report of the findings
will be submitted to Congress
within six months.
These broadcasts seek to
redress increased Soviet oppres-
sion of its Jewish population.
Emigration, which totalled more
than 50,000 in 1979, fell to less
than 1,000 last year. At the same
time, Soviet officials have increas-
ed their attacks against Jews and
the Jewish heritage. Soviet Jews
wanting to emigrate are harassed,
intimidated, and subjected to con-
tinuous abuse.
In the past two years, Smith has
personally helped increase from
five to 30 minutes Jewish pro-
gramming that the Voice of
America (VOA) broadcasts to the
USSR. He was also responsible
for persuading Radio Liberty to
broadcast an additional 30
minutes of original Jewish pro-
gramming, repeated three times a
In addition, Smith has worked
to rid Radio Free Europe and
Radio Liberty RFE/RL program-
ming of anti-Semitic broadcasts.
An amendment to this same
authorization bill, also authored
by Smith, requires RFE/RL to
adhere to stricter guidelines in
their operating procedures.
"Maccabee programming is an
important lifeline for Soviet Jews
who have been singled out for
cultural and religious genocide,"
concluded Smith. "Congress's
adoption of this measure is a
strong signal of the U.S. commit-
ment to Jewish culture and

cooking $15; insurance for the
contents of the aprtment $10;
telephone $16; electricity

dominium association which
covers building maintenance and

A modest monthly estimate for
food and local transportation, and
laundry adds another $80, for a
total of $281 a month. Mrs.
Cohen's monthly income from the
National Insurance is only $85 a
One might say that the $196 dif-
ference could be easily divided
among her children, but in today's
economy, her children, all of
whom have between 2-6 children
can barely pay their own bills. For
example, one son is finding it very
difficult for his family of five to
exist on a monthly income of $600
while one daughter's family lives
on $750, barely enough to support
a family of 8.
Through our generous contribu-
tions to the United Jewish Appeal,
the Jews in the United States are
doing so much to support Israel
and projects such as the fine JDC
adult congregate living facility
mentioned above. But so few of us
realize that the hardship of the
daily struggle of life for so many
people in Israel far surpasses the
hardship we may endure to make
our financial committment to
Israel's survival. It is Sarah
Cohen with her 40 offspring who
are making the real daily
sacrifices for Israel's survival,

Coalition Given 'Reasonable Chance' to Survive
Dan Meridor of Likud, who is a
close associate of Foreign
Minister and Deputy Premier Yit-
zhak Shamir, says he believes that
there is a "reasonable chance"
that the Labor-Likud coalition
government will survive its full
term and that Shamir will replace
Shimon Peres as Premier, as
agreed, in October, 1986.
"I am not a prophet but I
believe that the coalition govern-
ment will complete its full term
despite the differences between
Labor and Likud," Meridor, who
is a member of the Knesset's
Foreign Affairs and Security
Committee, said in an interview
with the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency here.
"There are some members of
the Labor Party who are pressur-
ing Peres to dissolve the govern-
ment and not let Shamir assume
the Premiership as the 'rotation
agreement' (between Labor and
Likud) stipulates," Meridor
"But I probably have more
moral faith in Peres than those
members of the Labor Party. I do
not believe that Peres will play a
trick and break the unity govern-
ment just to stop Shamir from be-
ing the Premier. We agreed to a
national unity government only
because it had the 'rotation agree-
ment' in it."
The 38-year-old Meridor, who
was the Cabinet Secretary from
1982 to 1984 while the Likud was
in power, said there are no serious
differences at present between
Labor and Likud to warrant the
dissolution of the coalition and
holding new elections.
"Look," Meridor said, "had
King Hussein come forward and
said that he agrees to a territorial
compromise with Israel, then,
maybe, there would be reason to
dissolve the coalition government.
But the differences between
Labor and Likud all can be dealt
with according to the agreed
guidelines of the coalition govern-
ment, which were the basis for the
unity government."
Meridor said that the disagree-
ment between Labor and Likud as
to how to solve the dispute with
Egypt over Taba, the tiny strip of
beachfront south of Eilat, is a
marginal one. "You do not
dissolve a government on such an
issue. This is a technical issue
whether to go to arbitration or
reach a compromise. Sooner or
later, I believe, a solution will be
found,"he said.
As to the issue of Judaea and
Samaria, Meridor said that the
guidelines of the coalition govern-
ment clearly show that Labor has
agreed to continue to build new
settlements in the territories, to
adhere to the Camp David
Agreements, and to oppose the
creation of a Palestinian state.
Therefore, Meridor pointed out,
all the major aspects of Israel's
foreign policy, over which Labor
and Likud sometimes have sharp-
ly different approaches, were
dealt with before the coalition was
formed and cannot now serve as a
cause for not completing the
scheduled term of the
Asked about the possibility that
the power struggle among top
Herut leaders, such as Shamir,
Ariel Sharon and David Levy,
might influence the future of the
coalition government, Meridor
stressed that Shamir is the leader
of Herut who will replace Peres as
Premier in October next year.
"The question of Herut's leader-
ship is clearly solved until 1988, if
not beyond that. Shamir was
elected by the Party (Herut) to be
the candidate for Premier twice.
There are political arguments fn
Herut," Meridor continued, "but I
don't think they can have an im-
pact on the future of thcytoalition
government." (
Meridor, who was in New York
after attending the conference of
the Coalition for Alternatives in
Jewish Education in Chicago
recently, was asked about reports
that Rabbi Meir Kahane's
popularity in Israel is growing
steadily and that the Kach Party
which he heads might increase its
power at the expense of Herut
and other rightwing parties.
"Kahane is the opposite of
Herut," Meridor responded
somewhat passionately. "He is a
man with dangerous, immoral and
un-Jewish ideas that revolt me
and and are against all the basic
ideals I was brought up on. In
order to fight this dangerous
phenomenon we recently passed a
bill in the Knesset that will outlaw
racist lists from participating in
the election. Kahane advocates
and incites racism ..." Continu-
ing, Meridor said:
"There is some exaggeration on
the part of the media regarding
Kahane's growing power. When
Jews are murdered by Arab ter-
rorists there is a surge of anger
and growing emotions, and some
people in the margin of society
tend to support Kahane.
"But when people calm down
they see that Kahane is not the
answer, because if you develop an
attitude that all the Arabs are ter-
rorists and they have to be ousted
(from Israel) that in itself can turn
a great deal of Arabs into ter-
rorists. In a way, the stronger
Kahane gets the stronger the
PLO gets. Kahane claims that
Jews and Arabs cannot live
together in a Jewish state this
is exactly what the PLO wants to
"But we, the Zionists, say that
Arabs and Jews can indeed coex-
ist in a Jewish state. It is difficult.
But we have to learn together how
to do it. We Jews cannot make
generalizations (about the Arabs)
as Kahane does, especially
because we were victims of
generalizations throughout our
Meridor said that during his cur-
rent visit here, as well as in
previous ones, he realized that the
PLO is making some inroads in
the United States. "I found the
beginning of a process of
legitimization of the PLO among
some policy-makers in the U.S.,"
Meridor warned.
It is still unofficial and is not
pronounced clearly, but there is
the anger that the PLO will enter
the U.S. through the back door.
We must make it clear in America
that peace in the Mideast cannot
be achieved through dealing with
the PLO nor through dealing with
a joint Jordan-PLO delegation."

PARIS (JTA) Poland will
show both on television and in
cinemas the nine-hour film
"Shoah," which describes in pain-
ful detail the horrors of the
Holocaust and recalls some of the
worst incidents of local collabora-
tion with the Nazi authorities.
The screening of the film, first
decried by the Warsaw govern-
ment as "anti-Polish propagan-
da," was announced recently by
the Polish government
spokesman, Jerzy Urban. The
film's director and producer
Claude Lanzmann has confirmed
in Paris that he has reached an
agreement with the Polish
Lanzmann said that the Polish
authorities wanted to show only
parts of the film on television,
arguing that nine hours is too long
Saudis to Use Oil
As Weapon Again
even for a serialization. When
Lanzmann refused this offer, ap-
parently fearing that some of the
scenes decrying Polish col-
laborators might be cut, Warsaw
suggested showing a shortened
version on television and the en-
tire film in one or more cinemas.
He said he has agreed to this for-
mula and the film will shortly be
screened in the country where the
Holocaust took place.
When the film was first screen-
ed in France the Polish press
charged it with carrying anti-
Polish propaganda. The Polish
Embaosy in Paris formally asked
the French government to pre-
vent its screening because of "its
serious anti-Polish insinuations."
The Polish press also charged the
film, and Lanzmann personally,
with "forging history." After
high-ranking Polish officials saw
the film, the Warsaw authorities
apparently changed their view.
The film has not yet been shown
on the French or any other televi-
sion network in the world. It was
launched at a preview attended by
President Francois Mitterrand
and half the French government
but it has fared badly in the
cinemas which have programmed
it. It is currently running in one
art cinema in Paris. It will be
shown at the Jerusalem
Cinematheque in October.
Arabia will resume within two
years use of its oil weapon against
the Western world, members of a
mission of the Council for a
Secure America told a press con-
ference here recently.
The CSA advocates policies aim-
ed at assuring the survival and
growth of America's domestic
energy industry and a broader-
base of American support for
Mack Wallace, co-chairman of
CSA, noted that Sheik Yamahi,
the Saudi Arabian oil minister,
had declared two years ago that
Saudi Arabia planned to use its
petro-weapon in 1987. Wallace
said the oil minister was looking
at the same figures "as we do."
The CSA brought together, in
the United States, two groups
which share a concern that
America's commitment to Israel
be able to withstand the tests of
current economic energy
pressures and future energy
crises and who agree that con-
tinued domestic energy produc-
tion is the only way to assure that
American security would not be
held hostage to oil from overseas
He said the "unique coalition"
between the American Friends of
Israel, a Jewish group, and a
group of oil men in Texas was
organized to give energy-
producing states more power in
Congress. He said that while the
oil men joined the partnership for
economic reasons, the Jews joined
because they felt such a coalition
was a prerequisite to assuring
United States independence from
Arab oil pressures.
