1985 Top Stories in Review
MENGELES DEATH The apparent
death of Josef Mengele the "angel of
death" at Auschwitz was one of the biggest
news stories of 1985.
By Andrew Polin
Editor for the Jewish Federation
of South Broward
(Editor's Note: See the top 1985 news stories in photos on
Page 7. For an analysis on how Israel fared on Capitol Hill
read Congressman Larry Smith's column on Page 8.)
It was a year of joy, tragedy and sensationalism for
World Jewry and Israel. Perhaps the top news stories
showed the opposites of life's humanity the death of a
Nazi war criminal and the exodus of 1,000s of Ethiopian
Jews to Eretz Yisrael.
World Jewry was forced to relive the memories of the
Holocaust, of Auschwitz where Josef Mengele, the most
wanted Nazi war criminal performed heinous experiments
on Jews and selected who would live and who would die.
The front page of every newsppaer and lead story of
every TV newscast in the summer of 1985 carried the
reports that the remains of Mengele had been found in
The tragedy of the Holocaust was once gain retold.
But the world also learned how the most wanted man in
the world escaped justice and punishment, how he lived for

U.S. Trying to Get Israel, Jordan to Peace Talks
By David Friedman
WASHINGTON (JTA) -
The Reagan Administration
will try over the next few
weeks to get Israel and Jor-
dan to agree on the condi-
tions for an international
conference that will lead to
direct negotiations between
the two countries, according
to a senior administration
"I think that a large
measure of agreement ex-
ists already on some of the
main points," the official
said in briefing reporters on
what he said was a year of
"incremental" progress in
the Middle East peace pro-
cess during 1985.
"It's now our job to try to
work and fill in the gaps,"
he said. But, he stressed,
"we continue to view direct
negotiations between the
parties as the only produc-
tive way to go. An interna-
tional conference is accep-
table to us, but only as an
event that would lead to
direct negotiations between
The official denied that
this was a change in U.S.
policy since the Administra-
tion had earlier rejected
King Hussein's demand for
an international conference
which would include the five
permanent members of the
United Nations Security
Council. He said Ad-
ministration spokesmen had
used the words interna-
"context" as a "signal" that
the U.S. had no specific idea
on how the conference
should be shaped.
"Whatever promises to
lead to successful direct
negotiations is, obviously,
our preferred choice," he
said. "We recognize that
whatever is agreed upon has
got to meet the political
needs of the parties
(In Jerusalem meanwhile,
the Foreign Ministry said it
does not believe the State
Department has changed its
position on an international
confernce on the Middle
East. A Foreign Ministry

rule out a Soviet role in the

that both Israel and Jordan

Orthodox Rabbi Urges Dropping Patrilineal Descent
NEW YORK (JTA) -
Rabbi Haskel Lookstein,
spiritual leader of Con-
eshurun, inducted recently
into the presidency of the
New York Board of Rabbis,
called upon the Reform
movement to "retreat"
from its "patrilineal des-
cent" decision according to
which children of intermar-
ried Jewish men are regard-
ed as Jews if brought up
Jewishly and connected to
the temple. The official
statement of this decision
three years ago "has driven
a wedge between the left
and the right that fosters
polarization, anger, resent-
ment, bitterness and
divisiveness," the Orthodox
Lookstein, who serves,
too, as the principal of
Ramaz (day) school in
Manhattan, also called for
the exploration by rabbis of
all branches of American
Judaism of methods of con-
version "which will be ac-
ceptable by the Jewish peo-
ple as a whole, including Or-
thodox Jews," and an agree-
ment among all branches
that a Jewish religious
divorce (get) be given when
a marriage ends in civil
divorce, a practice Reform
Judaism does not require.
At the same time, Looks-
tein who described himself
in his acceptance address as
"part of centrist Orthodox
Judaism," voiced strong
criticism of those Orthodox
rabbis "who want no part of
dialogue" with their Reform
and Conservative counter-
parts "when it comes to
religious matters" and who
"are not ready to relate" to
them "except on broad com-
munal issues." He
"Are we really afraid that
participating together in
joint ventures means giving
endorsement to those with
whom we may disagree?
Nobody has asked us for our
endorsement nor is anyone
interested in it. Individual
communities give legitimacy
to their own religious
leaders. We of the Orthodox
movement have no monopo-
ly on granting or
withholding legitimacy. No
one has given us the right to
judge the qualifications of
Lookstein urged Or-
thodox rabbis "to extend a
hand of friendship and love"
to Conservative arid Reform
rabbis and "not to be afraid
to sit down with them in
order to find acceptable
solutions to our problems."
Conservative and Reform
rabbis, he stressed une-
quivocally, "are the
recognized leaders of those
groups and they must be ap-
proached with respect and
These suggestions, ad-
dressed to what Lookstein
called the "left" and the
"right" in rabbinical circles,
came in the context of his
call to rabbis of all branches
of Judaism to head off while
there was still time the
"growing polarization that
exists in the religious com-
munities" in the U.S. and
Israel. Criticizing severely
the unwillingness of many

"to speak to each other civil-

Missionary Threat Cited
Mormon Campus Seen as Possible Danger to Israel:
By KEVIN FREEMAN
NEW YORK (JTA) Israel
was warned of the potential
dangers inherent in allowing
Brigham Young University, the
educational arm of the Mormon
Church, to follow through with
the construction of a $15-million
campus on Mt. Scopus in
"We are urging and we are try-
ing to call attention to the poten-
tial dangers inherent in this pro
ject," said Malcolm Hoenlein, ex-
ecutive director of the Jewish
Community Relations Council of
New York, at a news conference
at the organization's head-
quarters here recently.
His remarks followed the
release of a document by the
JCRC's Task Force on Mis-
sionaries and Cults outlining what
it termed the "recent escalation of
both missionary and cult activities
in Israel." The list contained brief
outlines of the activities in Israel
of nine missionary groups and
Julius Berman, chairman of the
Task Force and a former chair-
man of the Conference of
Presidents of Major American
Jewish Organizations, told
reporters that the JCRC's efforts
seek to "sensitize" and inform the
Israeli public and government of
the activities of these
Berman noted that the JCRC is
among the groups both in Israel
and in the U.S. that object to the
planned Mormon center opposite
the campus of Hebrew University.
"We have a right and we feel we
have the responsibility," Berman
said, to "sensitize both the Israeli
populace and Israeli government
to facts that we are aware of that
we believe they're not aware of."
The JCRC said that while of-
ficials for the Mormon Church
assert the Israeli project "will not
be a center for missionary activi-
ty, documents clearly show other-
wise. Among those documents is a
training manual prepared by the
Mormons on how to proselytize to
Jews, and a Hebrew translation of
a major Mormon treatise."
According to Hoenlein, the
JCRC is urging that both sides
Israel and the Mormon Church
come to a resolution in order to br-
ing a halt to the controversy over
the Jerusalem center. But he cau-
tioned that "We are not trying to
change the legal process" in
"We're not trying to tell the
Knesset what to do," Hoenlein
said. "We're not telling Shimon
Peres what to do. We're alerting
them to the dangers that impact
on us and we believe impact on
Israel. It is out of our love for
Israel that we speak out."
The JCRC's Task Force said the
Mormon Church has 29,000 full-
time missionaries throughout the
world and that Mormons are com-
mitted toward spending two years
toward missionary activities.
"They have a right to do it,"
Hoenlein said. "But we also have
a right to try and protect Jews
from that kind of influence."
Among the other missionary
organizations and individuals ac-
tive in "large proportions in
Israel," according to the JCRC,
* The International Christian
Embassy, founded in 1973, as a
means for the world Christian
community to express its concern
and support for Israel. The JCRC
said the ICE serves as an um-
brella organization for a number
of missionary groups in Israel, in-
cluding Voice of Hope Radio and
Bob Lindsay's Baptist Church.
* Project Kibbutz, founded in
the early 1970s by Art Carlson,
which works with the Tulsa Chris-
tian Fellowship headed by the
Oral Roberts University pro-
fessor, Charles Farah. The group
claims to work as kibbutz
volunteers to allow kibbutz
members free time. The Israeli
government has revoked the
group leaders' visas.
* Beth Shalom, known as Mid-
night Call Ministries in the U.S..
attempted to construct a
$7-million hotel complex and con-
vention center in Gilo. This, the
JCRC said, was to serve as a front
for their world missionary head-
quarters. Adverse publicity forced
the proposal to be withdrawn.

Why Aunt Sadie missed
her sister Ida's funeral.
It could have been different with
The GUARDIAN PLAN, program.
It's not easy for a seventy-five year old woman to travel over 1200
miles from New York to Florida for a funeral. So, when Ida died suddenly,
in Florida, Sadie couldn't get there. She was heartbroken. It could have
been different. Ida had bought a cemetery plot in Florida instead of using
the family property up North. She thought it would be too expensive and
too much trouble to hold funeral services back home.
But the fact is, it's not.
Funeral service between Florida and the New York metropolitan area
can be accomplished at surprisingly low cost. And in a manner that
makes it as easy as possible for the family. In fact, RIVERSIDE and the
other members of the guardian family of Jewish funeral directors
BOULEVARD-PARK WEST, SCHWARTZ BROTHERS and JEFFER-have
been helping families in this way countless times each year.
So before you make a decision, talk to The QUARDIAN PLAN
counselor In your area. He'll tell you about The QUARDIAN PLAN
insurance funded prearranged funeral program. He'll compare services
in the North with those in Florida. And he'll show you how planning

Just 12 months ago World Jewry rejoiced when 1,000s of Ethio-
pian Jews returned home to Israel.
Today, we are in agony, in mourning. Today, we are fearful.
We fear the possible confrontation that may occur between
Israel and Syria a "collision course" according to a Syrian
newspaper. We fear for the Israeli soldiers who are now mobilized
along the Golan Heights.
And we are in agony, in mourning because last week 14
passengers and by-standers including an 11 year-old girl
were murdered in two separate terrorist attacks at El Al check-in
counters in Rome and Vienna airports. Arab terrorists with
automatic weapons launched a grenade attack on holiday

Some cats crawl out of the proverbial bag very slowly. This is
the case with the Soviet Jewry issue. Little by little one hears
rumors, sotto voce comments and asides about the "true reason"
the Soviets have been reluctant to let more Jews out...
It seems that in the previous decade (1970s), when rather large
numbers of Jews were permitted to leave the Communist
Paradise, a growing number sought to go West (to the U.S.) in-
stead of East (to Israel). Some people may recall that even then a
certain amount of controversy found its way into the headlines,
when the Jewish Agency and groups like HI AS were pulling each
other's hair .. .
Now, some of the Jewish leaders are letting it be known that
the Soviet Union is reluctant to let our People go if it means they
will go to the U.S. instead of Israel for in that case, why are
they better than the millions of other Soviet citizens who would
also like to improve their standard of life by moving to our deca-
dent milieu in America?
A superficial glance at the composition and character of the
Soviet Jewish colony in New York or Cleveland tends to support
this: only a small proportion of the Soviet immigrants, now that
they are free to do so, appear to be practicing their religion in any
way. They are busy creating "Little Odessa" alongside Little Ita-
ly, Little Greece and Chinatown. In other words, becoming
But two points are missed by the superficial critic and the
leaders whose motives, justifiably, are the desire to see more of
the immigrants settle in Israel. The first is that all Jews in the
Soviet Union who wish to remain Jews are persecuted, and should
have the right to get out regardless of where they go. And cer-
tainly a growing number of those who wish to do so cannot prac-
tice their religion or maintain a cultural link to their ethnic
origins. The second is that one cannot trust the Soviet excuses no
matter what tomorrow they are just as likely to "leak out" the
excuse that they cannot let sizeable numbers go to Israel is
because of the Soviet's loyalty to the Arabs' cause and their belief
this would further jeopardize the Palestinians ...
Another visit to Chelm: One of the current scandals in Israel
concerns VIP's Cabinet members, deputy ministers and
directors-general (whose names, so far, have been kept from the
media), who insist that the state pay for medical care for them
abroad (as if medical care in Israel is not adequate).
In at least one of those cases, the VIP involved asked the
government to foot a bill amounting to some $100,000 for medical
services outside the country. This, at a time when the Health
Ministry (headed by a former general, Mordechai Gur, who has
been embroiled in many Labor-Likud clashes recently) is struggl-
ing with radical budgetary surgery, and hospitals and clinics are
cutting back on services for lack of money and supplies.
The story which topped this Chelm situation like icing on a cake
was the one concerning an official who asked the government to
approve the cost of a trip abroad for his daughter in order to get
an intra-uterine device (IUD) inserted ..
Speaking of Mordechai "Motta" Gur apparently he likes to
use the Hebrew vernacular, which is liberally interspersed with
Arabic words (Hebrew has virtually no "dirty" words). Recently,
Gur allegedly used the term "Maniac" in referring to Finance
Minister Yitzhak Modai of the Likud. "Maniac" is used in street
language in its Arab connotation, usually, which defines it as one
who commits sodomy. (It is pronounced Mahn-Yak').
Modai complained to Premier Shimon Peres, demanding that he
dismiss Gur for that kind of conduct. Peres, who almost dismissed
Trade and Industry Minister Ariel Sharon recently for the latter's
excesses in criticizing Peres, declined Modai's request. To which
Modai reacted: "I appealed to Peres as head of the government,
and he responded to me as head of the Labor Party ..."

Letters to the Editor
Judaica High School classes from Temple Beth
Emet, Temple Beth Ahm and Temple Israel
recently visited the Broward Association for
Retarded Citizens (BARC) Housing Community
for a holiday celebration.
When we loaded the bus to go on our trip, there
were many different feelings about going. Some
were happy, some were nervous, and some didn't
know what to expect. Boy, did we have time to
think about what to do or say. That bus ride seem-
ed to last forever!
After we got off the bus, we were greeted by
many new faces. They brought us into their
beautiful house to meet the rest of their friends.
Although we knew nobody, we felt the warmth of
caring and love all around. Everyone was introduc-
ed to each other and then we sat around and sang
songs. It was really special. After we were done
singing, we went into the kitchen and had some
snacks. Then the moment came for us to give out
our presents. We hoped they would like them. All
of our new friends were so happy with what they
got, they almost started to cry. But the part we all
dreaded came. It was time to say good-bye. After
10 minutes of saying good-bye and giving out hugs,
we loaded back on to the empty bus.
On our way home nobody could stop talking
about all that had happened. Telling stories about
the friends we had met. It was a special experience
to be able to share the holiday spirit together with
people who needed friends and love. And our new
friends were and are not "different" but yet
"special" and quite "unique." If we had the chance
to go back again, we would go in a second.

Most of these people arrived at Auschwitz with
their entire families young and old with small
children why? Because they were Jews! Three
million Jews were brought to Auschwitz for the
Final Solution and immediately underwent a selec-
tion process: only the strong and young were
chosen for slave labor, to do the devil's work, and
all others were immediately sent to the gas
chambers. Who can describe the enormous fear
when cattle trains arrived in Auschwitz containing
hungry, sick and terrified people. The trembling
mother with her babies one million children
perished at Auschwitz. Only the Jews and gypsies
were condemned to death from the moment they
entered the gates. Only the Jews were
systematically exterminated in the gas chambers
as part of Hitler's Final Solution to the Jewish pro-
blem. Many died at Auschwitz of starvation and
malnutrition, victims of slave labor, or for political
We, the survivors in Florida, mourn their
deaths. Only one people was doomed to destruc-
tion and that because they were born Jews. Our
parents, our brothers and sisters, our spouses and
our children lived as Jews and they died as Jews.
We, the survivors, have the right and the respon-
sibility to insist that they be remembered as Jews.
The tragic process of selecting people to be
murdered because of their race, religion, or color
must never be repeated. Technology and science
must never serve as the tools for mass murder sur-
rounded by indifferent and apathetic people in the
world. We hope that many people will learn the
lessons of the Holocaust.
We hope that many people will view this exhibi-
tion as it will help the world to understand what
happened in the Holocaust from 1933-1945. As a
survivor, I believe that by educating people about
the meaning of the Holocaust and how it scarred
the conscience of the world, that we may prevent
such an event from ever happening again.

The Convention on Genocide was originally
drafted 36 years ago as a response to the mass
murder of six million Jews and seven million other
ethnic groups by the Nazis. The convention formal-
ly defined genocide as the intentional destruction
of any national, racial, ethnic or religious group
and made mass killing an international crime. On
December 9, 1948, the UN General Assembly
unanimously approved it. Since then, over 90 coun-
tries, including Britain, France, West Germany
and the Soviet Union, have approved it.
Given the United States' repeated protests
against gross violations of human rights, it has
been a great embarrassment that ratification of
the treaty has failed thus far. It has been approved
by the American Bar Association and every presi-
dent (since Truman) except Eisenhower.
On Oct. 16 at the groundbreaking ceremony for
the Holocaust Memorial Museum, Senate Majority
Leader Robert Dole (R-KS) publicly pledged that
the convention will be ratified before the close of
the current session ofCongress. Later the same
day, President Reagan strongly urged the Senate
to give its advice and consent to ratification this

Genocide Convention and encourage their congres-
sional leaders to do the same.

Ivory Coast to Re-establish Ties
GENEVA (JTA) Premier
Shimon Peres recently announced
that Ivory Coast will re-establish
diplomatic relations with Israel,
broken off 12 years ago during the
Yom Kippur War.
Peres, who arrived here last
month, made the announcement
after a four-hour meeting with
President Felix Houphouet-
Boigny of Ivory Coast. The two
leaders issued a joint statment
saying, "We have decided to
recommend to our governments
to re-establish diplomatic rela-
tions." Peres told a press con-

Israel has been working
strenuously for years to restore
relations with the Black African
nations that abruptly broke them
off in 1973, apparently under
Arab pressure. So far it has suc-
ceeded with two, Liberia and

ties with Israel last year.
The Israel Premier made his
unannounced flight here especial-
ly to meet with Houphouet-
Boigny. He was accompanied by
David Kimche, director general of
the Foreign Ministry.
Uri Savid, a spokesman for the

the outcome was positive. That

How Israel Fared?
Friday, January 3, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 5
As 1985 draws to a close, a look
at how Israel fared in the halls of
Congress this year reveals that
friends of Israel have reason to
approve. In addition to providing
the Jewish State with the largest
aid package ever, Congress suc-
ceeded in forcing the Administra-
tion to delay their proposed arms
sale to Jordan.
On August 8, President Reagan
signed the FY 1986 Foreign
Assistance Authorization Act into
law. The bill, the first since 1981,
is the result of months of subcom-
mittee and committee hearings,
mark-ups, and compromises. It in-
cludes the following pro-Israel
policy provisions: $3 billion in all
grant aid $1.8 billion in foreign
military sales and $1.2 billion in
economic support funds; $1.5
billion in all grant emergency
economic assistance; all economic
aid to be disbursed as a cash
transfer in the first 30 days of the
fiscal year; and Lavi aircraft ear-
marking $250 million provided
for research and development and
procurement in Israel, $150
million for use in the United
States. The Lavi project will
enable Israel to produce its own
state-of-the-art fighter aircraft.
In addition, the bill includes an
amendment, which I authored, re-
quiring the President to certify to
Congress, when he submitted a
sale of sophisticated arms to Jor-
dan, that Jordan is publicly com-
mitted to the recognition of Israel
and has agreed to enter into pro-
mpt and direct peace negotiations
before allowing a major arms sale.
These provisions were also ac-
cepted by the House and Senate
Appropriations Committees and
were included in their respective
Continuing Resolutions stop-
3,500 Attend Hanukkah Fest
More than 3,500 people attend-
ed the Sixth Annual South Florida
Hassidic Hanukkah Festival
earlier this month at Young Cir-
cle's Bandshell in Hollywood.
Hundreds of young boys and
girls were present, each receiving
a dreidel, a fine sum of Hanukkah
gelt (money), candy, a copy of the
world's only Kosher Comic Book
(Mendy and the Golem) and an ins-
tant ID card as members of the
world's largest Jewish Youth
Club, the Army of Hashem.
Mike Kozlowski, Miami Dolphin
football player, told the kids now
important it was to listen to their
parents, to stay away from drugs
and other bad influences, and
most important to take advantage
of their freedom which is most ex-
pressed by the Hanukkah holiday.
There was a fine balancing act
performed by Mendel the Hassidic
balancer, and beautiful music
played by the Dov Litwin Or-
chestra. Cantor Yitzchok
Rosenberg led in the singing of
joyous holiday songs, and rab-
binical students provided the
special spirit in leading the variety
of dances that lasted several
Highlighting the evening was
the kindling of Florida's largest
Menorah, that stood 17 feet tall.
After Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus
opened the program by reading an
inspirational message from the
Lubavitcher Rebbe, the following
dignitaries were introduced:
Mayor David Keating with a pro-
clamation from the City of
Hollywood that "Requests the
coming of the Messiah"; State
Representative Irma Rochlin, who
read a special message sent to the
Festival by Gov. Bob Graham;
Broward County Commissioner
Nicki Grossman, who read the
proclamation "To Promote The
Seven Universal Laws of
Mankind" and Commissioner Art
Canon of Hallandale with a pro-
clamation for a year "To Be In-
spired by The Hanukkah Light?
What was probably the biggest
surprise of the evening was when
Suzanne Gunzberger was called
upon to read a special Hanukkah
message sent to the Congregation
and Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus
by President Reagan.
Given the honor to light the
candles were: State Rep. Fred
Lippman, County Commissioner
Scott Cowan; Hallandale Commis-
sioner Nat Cutler; President of
the Jewish Federation Dr. Saul
Singer; Hollywood, Commissioner
Stanley Goldman and Hallandale

Sixty wonderful prizes were
given away at the end of the
festivities. What was even more
successful than the excellent
entertainment, was the overall
feeling of rejuvenation for
Judaism, brought about by the
Menorah and the celebration.

PLO Terrorism Weekly
Since Lebanon War
NEW YORK (JTA) Since be-
ing expelled from Lebanon in
1982, the Palestine Liberation
Organization and other Palesti-
nian terrorist groups have carried
out terrorist actions throughout
the world on an average*of once a
week, according to the Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
The ADL has issued a research
report, "PLO and Palestinian-
Inspired Terrorism, 1982-1985:
The Continuing Record of
Violence," which cites and
describes terrorist incidents and
victims since the 1982 expulsion
of the PLO from Lebanon to the
hijacking of an Egypt-air plane to
Malta last month.
According to the report, in the
past three years, the PLO has car-
ried out attacks worldwide, in-
cluding incidents in Ankara,
Athens, Bangkok, Bogota,
Brussels, Buenos Aires.

Madrid. Marseilles. Milan. New
Delhi, Nicosia, Paris, Quito, Rome
gap funding measures to fund
agencies and programs, such as
foreign aid, whose regular ap-
propriations have not received
final Congressional approval.
Before the August Congres-
sional recess, Congress also pass-
ed the Department of State
Authorization bill, which included
provisions protecting Israel's par-
ticipation in the United Nations,
$25 million for resettlement of
Ethiopian Jews, and strong anti-
In September, the Reagan Ad-
ministration notified Congress of
its intent to sell Jordan an anns
package valued at $1.9 billion
despite strong Congressional op-
position. The opposition was bas-
ed on my amendment in the FY 86
Foreign Aid bill. More than two-
thirds of the House and Senate did
not believe that King Hussein had
taken the necessary steps to meet
the certification requirement.
The proposed arms package in-
cluded 40 F-20 or F-16 advanced
fighters; 12 mobile I-Hawk
surface-to-air missile batteries
and equipment to convert Jor-
dan's present 14 batteries into
mobile units; 108 Stinger
missiles; 300 AIM-9P4 infrared
air-to-air Sidewinder missiles; and
32 Bradley Fighting Vehicles.
In October, the Senate passed a
resolution, by a vote of 97-1, pro-
hibiting the arms sale until March
1, unless direct and meaningful
peace negotiations between Jor-
dan and Israel are underway. If
these negotiations have not taken
place, then Congress will be able
to permanently block the sale in
Due to the necessity of passing
legislation to block the sale within
30 days, the House Foreign Af-
fairs Committee accepted the
Senate resolution and the full
House approved it in early
November. President Reagan,
who had been persuaded to accept
the delay in order to avert an
outright rejection of the arms
package, reluctantly signed the
measure soon after.
Prior to the introduction of the
delaying resolution, an over-
whelming majority of Congress
had sponsored House and Senate
resolutions disapproving the sale.
Along with Foreign Affairs Com-
mittee Chairman Dante Fascell
and 10 House colleagues, I drafted
the House disapproval legislation
to block this unwise and untimely
arms sale. After less than two
weeks, we had more than 280
Congressional co-sponsors and in-
troduced the Legislation with
nearly two-thirds of the" House co-
sponsoring it. I will work with
Congressional opponents of the
sale to assure passage of my
original resolution of disapproval
in February if King Hussein con-
tinues to stall in negotiating
directly with Israel.
While there was some talk of a
proposed Saudi Arabia arms
package this year, the Ad-
ministration has decided to put off
such a request until early next
year. The package, which would
have faced stiff opposition in Con-
gress, would have included: 12
Blackhawk helicopters; advanced
electronic warfare equipment for
F-5s and F-15s; at least 1,000
Sidewinder missiles; Harpoon
missiles; 800 Stinger missiles; and
upgrades for Saudi Arabia's cur-
rent fleet of 60 F-15s and possibly
some additional F-15s.

cludes a joint House-Senate

charity work. When he and his wife, Irene,

many of which organiztions honored him,
especially the Bar Han University of Israel.
Let's look at the background of this man, who
is so respected .
Sydney Holtzman was born in Russia in 1908.
one of six children. They lived in a small village
of seven Jewish families ... all Holtzmans.
There was one school in the village, but Jewish
children were not permitted to attend that
school. Consequently, the seven Jewish families
hired a Jewish teacher, who taught the children
to the best of his ability. It was very difficult to
earn a livelihood in that village. His father left
for America in 1910, with the idea of returning
in about five years, with a little money.
However, the First World War broke out. he
could not return. But, he sent money for his
wife and six children to come to the Land of Op-
portunity. That was in 1920. There was so much
red tape, it took the family three months to get
to Ellis Island.
Sydney was the only one to go to day school.
All the others went to night school and worked
in the daytime. Sydney was the youngest boy
and for some reason his first class was 4B, even
though he did not know a word of English. It
took him almost two years to learn to speak pro-
perly. He finished high school and knew he
could not go to college because of lack of funds.
He started to look for a job, not knowing what
he wanted to do. He went to 120 Broadway, one
of the large buildings on Wall Street. Went
from office to office, asking if they needed a
boy. One man said: "Sure, we need a boy as a
runner we'll pay you $15 a week." He learn-
ed what his duties were that was in 1929.
Later in the year, the crash came and while it
ruined a lot of people financially, it benefitted
Sydney. He was a runner in the daytime and a
clerk at night for a brokerage firm, learning the
fundamentals of the business.
He was drafted in the Army in March 1942
and by December was sent overseas. He served
13 months in North Africa, 13 months in Italy
and then was returned to the States for a 30
day rest. It was at the end of that period that
Germany surrendered and he never went back
to the European area. He was assigned to a
Separation Center in Denver, Colorado and was
discharged in October, 1945. His last rank was
Then, he went back to Wall Street as a stock
trader. He worked for three different firms un-

For the past hundreds of years Jews have been bound together
by certain chemical laws. The "law of external pressure" has kept
us a cohesive force, molecularly bound to each other in that if we
did not hejp ourselves no one else would. In this case, the "law of
external pressure" is simply that we were compressed to be
within ourselves by the society that surrounded us.
Tradition, tzedakah, custom and human kindness declared that
the weary traveler be sheltered and fed. Later, Jewish life die
tated that we build hospitals, homes for the aged and other in-
stitutions that helped, nurtured, saved and brought together our
Today, in spite of some vehement contrary arguments by some
writers. I believe that these external pressures from the society
around us are lessening. It is easier for Jews to achieve success.
Quotas in professional schools have fallen by the wayside. Jews
have become very prominent in movies, theater and literature. I
am sure that you have noticed that many Jews no longer deem it
necessary to change their names (Tony Curtis would now, no
doubt, have remained Bernie Schwartz).
The point of constructing this chemical equation is that it is my
belief that the opposite side of the equation, the internal
pressures are now beginning to stir. We now see ionization and
polarization of groups within our Judaism.
There are those who support Ethiopian Jews in Israel and those
who don't. Those who support Meir Kahane and those who don't.
Those who agree with marriage rites in Israel and those who
don't. Yes, the internal pressure is increasing.
I hope the "internal pressures" don't explode someday like
some atomic reaction that fragments the Jewish people into
multiple smaller non-consequential groups. For then, how would
it be possible to come under the heading of "The Chosen People."

Jews, Blacks Urged To Improve Ties
Blacks and Jews whose rela-

mon enemies and not each other,

The two men said Black-Jewish
relations are not as bad as many
believe, nor are they as good as
they should be.
Jacob and Vorspan criticized the
friction which developed in 1984
between blacks and Jews because
of anti-Semitic remarks made by
Nation of Islam leader Louis Far-
rahkan and then-presidential can-
didate Jesse Jackson.
They suggested that blacks and
Jews should once again join forces
as they did during the Civil Rights
days of the 1960s, and fight for
the return of compassion to
"There's a certain sense that
blacks and Jews, whether we like
it or not, are joined at the hip. We
can't get away from each other,"

more common ground to agree
with each other rather than to

40 years and how he was protected.
For about two weeks, World Jewry waited and
speculated on whether one of the worst butchers in world
history had died unpunished.
The team of forensic experts came back with its report:
In all likelihood, the remains were those of Mengele. Many
Nazi-hunters including Simon Wiesenthal accepted
With Mengele's apparent death, a gruesome chapter on
man's inhumanity ended but it has not been forgotten
and nor will it be.
At the opposite side of life's spectrum, World Jewry
helped bring 1,000s of Ethiopian Jews to Eretz Yisrael in
what could be called one of the greatest humanitarian ef-
forts in the modern era Operation Moses.
In late 1984 and early 1985 Ethiopian Jews were facing
possible extinction. Ethiopia was living through a drought
and famine. Ethiopian Jews have been living with persecu-
tion for years.
But the Israeli government undertook Operations Moses
which brought 1,000s of Ethiopian Jews to Israel. World
Jewry raised more than $61 million in less than a year to
help settle our brethren the Jewish homeland.
These might be two of the top news stories in 1985.
Others might include:
Rabbi Meir Kahane and his Kach Party.
The success and popularity of Prime Minister Shimon
The continuing saga of the National Unity Government
in Israel, and whether the government will fall and new
elections will be held.
Israel's withdrawal of its troops from Lebanon, thus en-
ding a war which caused a bitter rift in Israeli society. More
than 600 soldiers were killed in Lebanon.
International terrorist attacks in which Jews often
were selected, as well as increased terrorist activity within
In retaliation for PLO terrorist attacks, Israel raided
PLO headquarters in Tunisia.
The continuing story of the Jewish underground in
Israel, which saw Jews convicted of terrorist crimes.
Soviet Jews who continue to live under the repressive
regime of the USSR. The Gates to Freedom are stul closed
and only 1,100 Soviet Jews were allowed to leave.
The 1985 Maccabiah Games which saw more than 3,000
Jewish athletes from throughout the world compete in
Israel. Local Hollywood swimmer Michael Glassman took
home three medals.
And as one TV journalist might say, "And that's the way
it was in 1985."

Soviet Jewry Update_____
Human Rights Day Focused
Attention on Soviet Jews
Mikhail Gorbachev earlier this
year announced that "no pro-
blems exist in the Soviet Union
and Soviet Jews have full human
rights and the privilege to
That statement as the entire
Jewish community knows is un-
founded, Jerry Goodman, ex-
ecutive director of the National
Conference on Soviet Jewry, said
at the recent Human Rights Day
program at St. Johns Lutheran
For those Soviet Jews who
acknowledge their Jewishness and
wish to live as Jews, Goodman
said, life can only be described as
hell on earth. The Soviet govern-
ment's goal is to destroy the Jews
spiritually by making it impossible
for them to exist as Jews, he
Many of the 400,000 Soviet
lews who applied to emigrate
lave been refused which can lead
m job firings, and imprisonment.
Goodman urged Americans and
all people in the world to ask their
governments the question of how
the Soviet government can be
trusted to honor its treaties, con-
tracts and even its word, when the
Soviets deny even basic rights to
their citizens. We must continue
to fight for Soviet Jews and for
every other person in the Soviet
Union who wishes and yearns for
freedom, he added.
Feliks Kushnir, a former Soviet
refusenik who was allowed to
leave in 1983 and resides in Tel
Aviv, told the audience that he
received his internal ID card at
age 16 which was stamped
"Jewish" instead of Soviet
citizen. This was the first time in
his life he realized that he might
be different. Kushnir explained
that the word "Jew" is used as a
derogatory word, among Soviet
citizens. Anti-Semitic slogans are
daily appearances in newspapers
and Zionism is equated with
When Kushnir was 24 he was
given a book on Jewish history.
Until that time he never realized
that Jews had a history or past.
That night he changed from a
Soviet citizen to a Jew. He began
discussing the possibility of
emigrating to Israel with his
parents who also knew little of
He explained that long before
the actual exit visa is applied for,
families are torn apart physically
and emotionally. You are break-
ing the family chain. When
Kushnir and his family applied, he
was asked to leave his position at
the thermal physics institute
where he worked. After that he
existed by taking menial jobs. His
parents were allowed to leave in
1979, but Kushnir was not allowed
to leave until 1983.
Kushnir suggested that our
government should have stood
firm following the Summit in
Geneva, until the U.S. definitely
saw proof of changes in the ability
of refuseniks to emigrate. When
Soviet Jewish Refuseniks want
to meet American Jews who visit

Reagan Urged to Pardon
Five Rabbis Jailed
For Soviet Protest
NEW YORK (JTA) President
Reagan has been urged to make a
strong statement in support of
Soviet Jewry by issuing a pardon
to five rabbis currently serving a
15-day sentence in a Virginia
prison for demonstrating within
500 feet of the Soviet Embassy in
Washington. The plea, in a
telegram to the President, was
made by the Rabbinical Assembly
and the Central Conference of
American Rabbis, the Conser-
vative and Reform rabbinical
organizations, respectively. A
similar plea was issued by the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet Jewry.
At the same time, B'nai B'rith
International denounced the
sentences handed down to the 22
rabbis and one Lutheran minister
last month by a District of Colum-
bia judge. The judge offered along
with the fine and probation, a
suspended sentence to all the pro-
testors, but the five opted to take
the 15 days in jail to dramatize the
plight of Soviet Jews who, they
said, are not entitled to suspended
sentences in the Soviet Union.
Meanwhile, members of the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet Jewry
and the Hebrew Institute of
Riverdale recently staged a
"flames of freedom" demonstra-
tion outside the Soviet diplomatic
compound in the Bronx in support
of the five imprisoned rabbis. The
rabbis are in the Petersburg
Prison in Virginia. They are in the
minimum security section, receiv-
ing kosher food and doing

Temple Beth El is planning a Yiddish Weekend for Jan.

Yiddish Weekend Set
For Temple Beth El
Temple Beth El is having its Third Annual Yiddish Weekend
which has been made possible by the generosity of Temple
members, Ruth and Arnold Picker. The featured speaker will be
Aaron Lansky, the young founder and executive director of the
National Yiddish Book Center.
Lansky is involved with the revival of the Yiddish language and
collecting Yiddish books from all sources in order to revive this in-
terest. Through letters to Jewish authors, press releases and
travelling around the country in a van to collect the books, the
volumes began coming in, slowly at first and then at a rapidly ac-
celerated pace. The young directors and workers at the Center
are passionately interested in Yiddish culture. According to one
of the directors, "Yiddish was the language of 80 percent of all
Eastern European Jews for the last 1,000 years. Yiddish has a
particular viewpoint that comes right from the heart and soul of
the Jewish people, a viewpoint that can't be captured in any other
The weekend will begin with a lecture by Lansky at the Shabbat
service on Friday evening, Jan. 10, and on Saturday afternoon at
3:30 p.m. with a lecture/slide presentation.
On Sunday evening, Jan. 12, at 7:30 p.m., the Yiddish weekend
will conclude with the showing of a Yiddish musical comedy film,
Jolly Paupers (Freylehke Kabtsonim), with English subtitles. The
film, which is a rare, surviving feature film, was originally pro-
duced in Poland in 1937 and restored only recently. Refreshments
will be served after the movie.
All three events of the Yiddish Weekend are open to the public.

called on the American Zionist
Federation to drop any plans for a

of its constituents.

told the Jewish Telegraphic Agen-
cy that the AZF constitution con-

that, while there has been a sug-

adopted by the ZOA's National
Executive Committee which met
here in conjunction with the Pan-
American convention of the

Columbian Jews Turn to
World Jewry for Help
NEW YORK (JTA) The
Jewish community of Colombia
has appealed to the Jews of the
United States for help with
"Bricks for Colombia," a project
of self-help housing for people
made homeless by the volcano
that buried the town of Armero,
according to an announcement
made here recently by Dr. Saul
Cohen, executive vice president of
the American Jewish Joint
Cohen said the proposed project
was outlined to the JDC by Israeli
humanitarian and peace activist
Abie Nathan, following a tour of
the devastated area by a team of
Israeli volunteers. "Since the cost
of the project, an estimated
$500,000, is beyond the means of
the small Colombian Jewish com-
munity, they have turned to the
Jewish communities of North
American and Israel for help,"
"The 'Bricks for Colombia' pro-
ject," he added, "will consist of a
brick factory located on high
ground between the towns of
Lerida and Guayabal, where the
survivors of Armero will build
new homes. The factory will
employ 200 people for a period of
at least 10 months, producing an
estimated 5 million bricks. These
will be supplied free to the
homeless families. The Colombian
government," said Cohen, "has
agreed to transport the bricks to
the building sites, and will provide
roads, foundations, sewage and

Family Life Outlook
By Dr. Clifford S. Golden
Jewish Family Service
Throughout our lives, from birth to death, we all pass through
certain stages. During each stage of our life there are specific
tasks that we must accomplish and needs that we must fulfill.
As the expected life span continues to increase, the period of
later adulthood (51 plus) becomes much longer and allows us the
opportunities to grow, develop, and realize our untapped poten-
tials. This state of later adulthood, often coinciding with partial or
full retirement, can be one of the most rewarding times of our life
as we apply our wealth of previous experiences to everyday living.
Why then do so many people in this stage of later adulthood feel
that their lives are over? Why are people saying, "If I knew then
what I know now, things would be different," when they should
be saying, "I will do my beat with what I have now to enjoy the
rest of my life." The period of later adulthood, with many realistic
concerns, ranging from reduced income to family communication
problems, should not be looked upon as "The End." The period of
later adulthood is becoming one of the longest periods in our life,
and as Pablo Picasso, Charlie Chaplin, and Gary Grant can con-
firm, quite exciting.
Retirement means more leisure time to invest in old activities
which you have enjoyed, or new ones you always wanted to start.
It may mean more tennis, golf, fishing, cards or boating. Retire-
ment may mean new and rewarding experiences. Perhaps you
always wanted to study a specific subject or take a certain trip
now is the time!
If, however, you are like so many others who find themselves in
later adulthood, not sure how you got there or where you are go-
ing, perhaps you should call Jewish Family Service. We can help
you to evaluate your concerns and goals. Please give us a call at
our Hollywood office, 966-0956, Fort Lauderdale office,
749-1005; or Deerfield Beach office, 427-8508.

Arab Birth Rate Exceeds
Jewish Rate in Israel
JERUSALEM (JTA) The
Arab birth rate in Israel and the
administered territories exceeds
that of Jews, according to the
latest figures released recently by
the Central Bureau of Statistics.
Last year there were 78,600 bir-
ths among the Arab population
compared to 74,500 Jewish births.
About 24,000 of the Arabs were
born in Israel proper and 30,400
in the West Bank. The balance of
Arab births was in the Gaza Strip.
Demographic experts expect this
trend to continue in the coming
years. Last year 3,472,000 Jews
lived in Israel and the territories
compared to 2 million Arabs
under Israeli jurisdiction.

Israel has made tremendous
strides under the national unity
government in stabilizing its
troubled economy. There are
signs that the corner has been
turned and Israel's outlook can
now be described as hopeful.
The role of Israel Bonds in this
heartening development is signifi-
cant. As its has since 1951, when
David Ben-Gurion established the
Bond Organization as a
mechanism for the American
Jewish community to participate
in the economic building of the
young state, bonds is channeling
vitally-needed capital for jobs in
the development towns and for in-
dustries that have the most poten-
tial for further improving Israel's
economic position: electronics, ad-
vanced high-tech, agricultural in-
novation and other state-of-the-
Bond proceeds, channeled
through Israel's Development
Budget, have now injected more
than $7.5 billion into the nation's
economic bloodstream, a vital
source of strength that is needed
today more than ever before.
The American-Jewish communi-
ty has been rallying to Israel's
cause in its effort to achieve
economic recovery and self-
sufficiency. But a pledge does not
help Israel until it is paid. Israel's
crying need is for cash through
the immediate fulfillment of all
