Shomrai Guest Speaker Sen. Moynihan:
'Don't Become Obsessed With Terrorism'
By Andrew Polin
Jewish Floridian of South Broward
HOLLYWOOD, FL Despite the highly publicized accounts of re-
cent terrorist attacks, Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan, D-New York, says
the country can't "become obsessed with the subject."
"The important thing is that you don't let that kind of behavior
change your position as a government," Moynihan told reporters
recently at a press conference sponsored by the Jewish Federation of
South Broward. Moynihan spoke later that night at the Federation's
Shomrai Dinner Dance at Temple Beth Shalom.
Moynihan said terrorism is not a new phenomenon, pointing out that
World War I was sparked by the assassination of Archduke Francis
Ferdinand in 1914. "We have had our share of terrorism," he said.
The senior senator from New York also mentioned the assassinations
of President John F. Kennedy, Sen. Robert Kennedy, civil rights leader
Martin Luther King, Jr.. and the attempted assassination on President
"We have shown that we haven't let this change how we run our
country or our courts. That's the only real answer." Moynihan said.
"Don't become obsessed with the subject," he added.
Moynihan, who also recently appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press,"
lambasted the Gramm-Rudman act which he said will hurt the coun-
try's ability to fight terrorism as well as undermine l.'.S. foreign policy.
"You can't say to the world that you're going to drastically cut our
defense and act against terrorism .is well." he stated.
"It's not going to be a safer world if the IS. dismantles its defense
capacity, and that's what Gramm-Rudman will do." the senator said.
Gramm-Rudman is the recently passed budget balancing legislation.
"We're sending a signal to the world that we're not going to be the p-
resence we have been. Terrorism requires a state of readiness,"

ADL Report: Anti-Semitism Decreases
NEW YORK (JTA) Anti-
Semitic incidents directed against
Jews and Jewish institutions in
the United States decreased
notably last year, according to the
annual audit conducted by the
Anti-Defamation League of B'nai
The findings, made public
recently by Nathan Perlmutter,
ADL's national director, were
divided into two basic categories:
vandalism, ranging from swastika
daubings to bombings; and per-
sonal assaults, threats and
They revealed 638 reported in-
cidents of vandalism against
Jewish institutions and private
Jewish homes in 34 states and the
District of Columbia, an 11 per-
cent decrease from the 1984 total
of 715. The 638 incidents included
6 arsons, as against 9 in 1984; 5
attempted arsons, as against 8
last year; 3 bombings, the same as
in 1984; and 3 attempted bomings,
as against 1 in 1984.
The report points out that
although there were fewer in-
cidents of vandalism, several were
particularly disturbing and receiv-
ed nationwide attention. The
audit also showed that there were
306 anti-Semitic assaults (such as
beatings), threats and
harassments (such as abusive
mailings and telephone calls)
against Jews and Jewish proper-
ty, a 17 percent decrease from 369
The audit was prepared by the
Research Department of ADL's
Civil Rights Division from data
gathered through the monitoring
activities of the agency's 30
regional offices around the
Perlmutter pointed out that the
new findings reflect a general
five-year downward trend, inter-
rupted by a small increase in 1984.
He called the current satistics
"encouraging" and said they were
most likely the result of stricter
legislation, vigorous law enforce-
ment and increased educational
He added, however, that while
the audit is "a useful yardstick for
measuring one aspect of anti-
Jewish hostility in the United
States, there are other manifesta-
tions of anti-Semitism."
He singled out the followins:
The criminal conspiracy laun-
ched by The Order, a neo-Nazi
group committed to overthrowing
the government which it declares
is Jewish-controlled. Ten of its
members were convicted by a
Federal Court in Seattle in
December (11 others had earlier
pleaded guilty) for crimes commit-
ted in 1984, including the murder
of Alan Berg, a Jewish talk-show
host in Denver, and a synagogue
bombing in Idaho.
The activities of such other
organized right-wing anti-Jewish
hate groups as the Ku Klux Klan,
the Posse Comitatus and the Iden-
tity Church which pose continuing
dangers despite declining

Convent at Auschwitz Provokes Outcry
BRUSSELS (JTA) European Jewish communities are shocked and
outraged at a plan by Polish Catholic Church officials to build a
Carmelite convent on the site of the Auschwitz death camp where more
than two million Jews were murdered by the Nazis during World War
II, the World Jewish Congress has reported. The WJC also reported
tfiat at its request, the Polish government will intervene with church of-
ficials regarding their plan.
Belgian Jews first learned of the convent proposal when fund-raising
efforts for its building were organized by a group called "Help to the
Church in Distress," which works for the Roman Catholic Church in
According to the Brussels evening newspaper Le Soir, eight
Carmelite monks have been living in Auschwitz since Last May, in
preparation for the erection of a convent there. The newspaper reports
that the convent would symbolize: "Love, peace and reconciliation,
witnessing the victorious power of the cross of Jewsus. It will become a
spiritual fortress, and the proof of the conversion of apostates and those
who went astray in various countries."
In early December, when a delegation of the WJC led by its president
Edgar Bronfman was officially received in Warsaw, the issue was rais-
ed with Polish authorities. Bronfman advised Poland's Minister of
Religious Affairs Adam Lopatka of the categorical Jewish opposition to
the proposed convent and received Lopatka's assurances that he would
intervene with Polish Catholic officials.
In Geneva, the president of the International Council of Jewish
Women, Leila Siegel, has written to Sister Sheila Sedawie of the Sisters
of Zion asking that the placement of a convent in Auschwitz be
"We feel this way not only because of the martyrdom of millions of
Jewish children, women and men," Seigel wrote, "but also because
their martyrdom was shared by millions of human beings having
various beliefs and creeds."
She added: "We believe that the ground of Auschwitz belongs to all
who were massacred then d that, therefore, no one group should
establish itself on this hallow ei ground. Were this to happen, the action,
however laudible in its aims, would create much misunderstanding and

First Equal Access Conflict Ends Amicably
By Andy Muchin
News Editor of
The Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle
MILWAUKEE (JTA) The
first known local conflict over
noncurricular religious activity in
a public secondary school has end-
ed with all sides apparently
It all began last September,
when a Jewish woman in subur-
ban Mequon, Wise., complained to
the principal of Homestead High
School there that a group of Chris-
tian students studying Bible at the
school after classes ended was in
violation of the Equal Access Act
The Act mandates that a public
secondary school must either per-
mit all noncurriculum-related stu-
dent groups including religious
ones to meet in the school dur-
ing "noncurricular time" and
under certain conditions, or pro-
hibit all such meetings.
The group, Christians in Action
(CIA), claims a membership of
20-30 students with a faculty ad-
viser. It has met weekly since
September, 1984 to study the
New Testament and hear Chris-
tian music and guest speakers. It
will continue to meet as long as it
adheres to the interpretation to
Equal Access agreed to verbally
last month by the Milwaukee
Jewish Council and the Mequon-
Thiensville School District presi-
dent, David Hase.
This agreement followed a
series of meetings involving
school administrators, Council of-
ficials, group adviser Jerre Allen,
and the woman who complained.
The interpretation agreed to, ac-
cording to Mark Kohlenberg of
the Council, is:
That the group no longer be
listed in the school's yearbook.
The listing implies group affilia-
tion with the school. Hase said the
listing in last year's yearbook
"slipped through the cracks."
* That announcement of group
meetings be omitted from the stu-
dent newspaper. Again, this im-
plies affiliation with the school.
Moreover, the student newspaper,
The Spectrum, published a brief
feature article about the CIA last
November 8. The school principal,
Dr. John Box, said he has in-
structed the advisers of both
publications to omit information
about the CIA.
That the faculty adviser serve
only in a custodial role. Adviser
Allen said that he only watches
student activities because "the
school wants an adult present at
every club activity" and that the
students asked him to do so. Ac-
cording to Box and Hase, Allen
now understands his role.
That outside speakers not be
used regularly, nor proselytize.
Hase said it would be safest not to
invite outside speakers at all. Box
said none would be invited. Allen
said he agreed only that clerics
would not be invited.
That no retribution, formal or
informal, be made against the
woman who complained or her
Hase said Box would enforce %
the agreement. "I've checked i
since (the agreement) and I'll
check again," Box said. Allen said
the students "feel very strongly
about staying within the law."
Kohlenberg said the Council will
continue to monitor the situation
"We nipped it in the bud," he said.
"Equal access is a watered down
version of school prayer legisla-
tion." He also complained that the
law is vaguely worded, and Hase
agreed. "1 certainly would say
that it is a vaguely written law
and a difficult law to administer,"
Hase said, "and I think that
anyone who confronts it has got to
be very careful that all the in-
terests affected ought to be
Hungary Pays Official Tribute to Raoul Wallenberg

when Wallenberg, declared dead
by the Russians, was actually a
secret prisoner in Moscow.
The 18-foot-high statue, by
sculptor Pal Patzay, was commis-
sioned by Jewish bankers, in
gratitude to their young Swedish
savior. It depicted a man wrestl-
ing with a snake. A medallion of
Wallenberg's profile and an in-
scription in his honor were fixed
to its plinth.
It disappeared in 1949 on the
night before it was to have been
unveiled in Budapest, and was
quietly reerected four years later
at a pharmaceutical works in the
town of Debrecen. Stripped of all
reference to Wallenberg, it now
stood as a vague symbol of man's
fight against disease.
Earlier this month, however,
the Hungarian Ambassador to
Britain, Dr. Matyas Domokos,
declared that his country honors
the memory of Wallenberg and af-
firmed that the anonymous statue
is really a tribute to the missing
His statement, in a letter on
behalf of the Central Committee
of the Hungarian Socialist
Workers Party, is an
acknowledgement of the
widespread international interest
evoked by the Wallenberg affair
in recent years. It also reveals
Hungary's embarrassment over
the shoddy fate of Wallenberg
himself in Soviet hands.
The Ambassador's letter was
addressed to actress Pamela
Mason, a member of the British
Wallenberg Committee, who had
written about the statue to the
Hungarian leader Janos Kadar on
the occasion of his recent official
visit to Britain.
At the British Wallenberg Com-
mittee's request, the issue was
also raised informally with senior
Hungarian Communist officials by
British delegates to the recent
East-West cultural forum in
The Jewish Telegraphic Agency
has learned that during the forum,
United .States Ambassador
Walter Stoessel laid a wreath in
Wallenberg's honor in the
Budapest street which bears his
name. Three years ago
Wallenberg was named an
honorary U.S. citizen.
Budapest's Wallenberg Street,
in the area where many Jews were
saved by the Swedes, was given
its name immediately after the
liberation of the city from the
Nazis. Unlike the statue with
Wallenberg, the street was left
The first sign of Hungary's of-
ficial uneasiness about the fate of
the statue appeared two years ago
in a lengthy article in the official
Hungarian magazine, Historika,
by Janos Poto. It recounted the
origin of the statue, and how it
disappeared from Budapest's
Saint Stephens Park. Without
delving into the fate of
Wallenberg himself, the author
noted caustically that "the same
thing happened to the statue as to
its inspirer it disappeared."
"He also expressed shock at its
use for a completely different

Soviet Jewry's Future
By Charles Levine and Judy Siegel
As children born after Hitler's reign of terror, we all once asked
our parents who watched it from the safety of America what
they had done to prevent the death of six million Jews. As adults,
living in Israel, we may someday be asked by our children: "What
did you do to prevent the disolution of the two-and-a-half-million
member Jewish community of the Soviet Union?"
Although physical intimidation of Jewish activists who want to
live in Israel has increased in the last few years after an all too
brief respite from Stalinist terror, Russian Jews are probably not
about to be destroyed as the Jews of Europe were nearly half a
century ago. They seem fated nonetheless to disappearance
through intermarriage and assimilation, through no fault of their
own. They have been without synagogues, rabbis, Jewish schools
and rituals for so long that it is a wonder that a small but growing
number are awakening to the Jewishness that they were
systematically blocked from for two generations.
We hope it doesn't happen. We pray that the hundreds of
thousands of Russian Jews who want to come to Israel will finally
be allowed to leave. But praying and hoping are not enough not
enough to serve as an answer to our children who may one day
pose that awesome question.
We, in Israel and throughout the Diaspora, must demonstrate,
write letters to powerful people, speak out, correspond with those
caged Jews, send through all possible channels Hebrew and
Jewish books and ritual articles. We must not be silent.
Both in Israel and the Diaspora, we have grown weary of the
cause of Soviet Jewry. Emigration has gone downhill since the
apex in 1979, when tens of thousands were let out. Now Jews are
allowed to leave in dribs and drabs, a few dozens a month at most.
The "dropping out" of nearly 100,000 Russian Jews clutching
Israeli-issued visas in their hands but with their sights set on the
good ol' "capitalist paradise" in America have not helped the
cause. The Soviets have long been well aware of this phenomenon
and use the "dropouts" to claim that Soviet Jews are "lying" and
never intended to be reunited with their brethren in their
With good intentions at least at first, organizations like the
Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society offered "free choice" to Soviet
Jewish emigrants, reaching out with tickets to America and
money and gifts even real American-style Jewish weddings.
The trickle soon gushed, as Jews who had begun to believe Soviet
anti-Zionist propaganda decided to become "refugees" despite
the Israel that beckoned them. The decided to "try out America
first." If it didn't work out, they reasoned, they could always go
later to the country that had granted them their visa to freedom,
expenses paid as newcomers still. HIAS, underwritten for each
person by the U.S. government, obliged and did the best they
could to help them see the Statue of Liberty.
Meanwhile, some 150,000 Russian Jews the most Zionist and
Jewishly motivated core did in fact settle in Israel and have by
now become an inseparable part of our society and culture,
precisely what Israel needs. They have brought scientific and
technical know-how, human resources and a cultural richness.
Most of them seem to be happy; they earn better than the average
Israeli wage and could afford to emigrate to America if they so
desired. Yet they choose to stay here, and their children are grow-
ing up as Jews. Will their cousins born now and in future genera-
tions in America be able to make that claim?
At the summit between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev,
the Soviets played a fine game. The new Communist savior has
cut emigration even below the limits set by predecessors. Still he
has permitted a few "big names" to go, like Yitzhak Shkolnik,
separated from his wife who preceded him to Israel in 1972, and
Mark Nashpitz whose release was announced in September. Sym-
bols without the substance to back them up. .there is no trend.
The Russian authorities apparently hope that these headline
releases will create the illusion that Soviet Jews are free to go and
that America need pay no heed to contrary claims. They want
U.S. technological expertise, detente, cheap agricultural proiduce
and a warming of relations but don't want to pay for all this
with released Russian Jews.
Neither President Reagan nor the American Jewish community
should be taken in by this ploy. The Jews are in danger, and there
is no one to save them but us.

It is no surprise but it is worth noting that
the so-called Arab moderates are reacting predic-
tably to the U.S. decision to stand up to Muammar
Khadafy. The naive among us might assume that
countries like Jordan and Saudi Arabia suppos-
ed U.S. allies and nations that are high on
Khadafy's hit list would support a firm stand
against the Libyan terrorist. But that won't hap-
pen. This time, as so often in the past, the Arab
world stands almost as one in support of
The evidence is all around us. Arab League
foreign ministers meeting in Tunisia condemned
America's tough line toward Libya and
unanimously went on record in support of
Khadafy. In Jordan, the government-controlled
newspaper Al Dustur denounced "possible
U.S.-Israeli aggression against Libyan territory
and the fraternal Libyan people" (Jan. 6). In Saudi
Arabia, King Fahd was reported to have telephon-
ed Khadafy with an offer of Saudi support in the
event of a Libyan confrontation with the United
States or Israel. Saudi radio "absolutely rejected"
the U.S. stand against Khadafy. A statement on
Jan. 4 defended Khadafy by arguing that he had
nothing to do with terrorist attacks in Europe. In-
stead it blamed the United States for providing
"U.S. arms .to kill the Arabs."
The tiny emirate of Abu Dhabi used its
newspaper, Al Khalij (Jan. 5), to warn that "Arab
silence over the U.S.-Zionist" plot against
Khadafy "encourages Washington and Tel Aviv to
continue their aggressive designs." It said that the
Arab world has a "moral obligation" to reply to
"U.S.-Zionist" aggression against Libya.
As for the "moderate" Arafat wing of the PLO,
it also defended Libya. Yasir Arafat said on Jan. 7
that "we stand with Libya against any aggression
on the part of Israel and America
There is no need to look at the statements issued
by the radicals. Syria, which is allied with Libya
and Abu Nidal, vehemently supports the Libyan.
And so do the Soviets, who are Khadafy's arms
But it is the reaction of those deemed moderate
that is most instructive. Jordan and Saudi Arabia
are widely touted in the United States and Europe
as pro-Western and moderate. And to a certain ex-
tent they are. But look at how quickly that modera-
tion and pro-Western orientation disappears when
the United States considers taking action against a
terrorist-backing Arab regime. In the final
analysis, pan-Arab considerations take precedence
over any supposed commonality of interests with
the United States and the West. Blood is thicker
Israel has to take that into consideration when it
contemplates trading territory for a peace ar-
rangement with Jordan. After all, Jerusalem has
to wonder if Jordan could ever resist the siren call
to join Syria and even Syria's enemy, Iraq, in a
war against Israel. An Arab world which will bury
any number of hatchets and close ranks behind the
likes of Khadafy could obviously do the same (as it
has time and time again) in a war against Israel.
This is something that the United States must
bear in mind as Washington considers new arms
sales for the Saudis and the Jordanians. Sen. Alan
Cranston (D-Calif.) says that it would be "unwise
for our government to sell advanced arms to any
nation that is actively giving aid and comfort to
Libya." The Senator is right. Any friend of
Khadafy's is no friend of ours. Or of peace either.

tion of Near East Report.)

Editor Near East Report III
In the days and now weeks
following the Vienna and Rome
airport masscres, segments of the
media have adopted a new ap-
proach toward Israel. The media
seems anxious for an Israeli
retaliatory raid against Libya, the
PLO, or Syria. And the media is
not alone. There are hints from
Washington and from foreign
governments as well that this
time it would be okay for Israel to
It is all rather ironic. Can
anyone recall an Israeli strike
against terrorists that was not
condemned by foreign govern-
ments and the world media? On
many occasions even the United
States has joined the chorus say-
ing that Israel's retaliation was
"disproportionate" and would on-
ly add to the "cycle of violence."
Western European nations now
looking toward Israel to take the
actions they are afraid to take
have been the most vocal in
criticizing any forceful response
So far Israel isn't buying. This
doesn't mean that it has abandon-
ed its anti-terrorist policy. It
hasn't and. in fact, it will pro-
bably strike hard against those
responsible for the murders in
Europe. But it will do so at a time
and place of its choosing. It is cer-
tainly not going to do anything to
take the Europeans off the hook.
The airport massacres took place
in Europe. Most of the people kill-
ed in them were Europeans or
Americans. Retaliation for them
is certainly not Israel's sole
responsibility not by a long
One "senior Israeli official" ex-
plained Israel's position to New
York Times correspondent Tom
Friedman on Jan. 6. "Let us be
frank," he said. "This man
Khadafy is crazy. Do you think we
need to be fighting with him all
over Europe now?" The official
continued, "The Europeans are
afraid to deal with him. The
Americans are hesitant, so we are
the ones'- who are invited to go
In essence, the Israeli's
response was "thanks, but no
thanks." Israel will fight its own
wars because it has no choice but
to defend itself. And it will fight
the terrorists who are determined
to wipe Israel off the face of the
earth. It will also join in any
multinational effort to fight the

battle as a proxy for countries
that are far larger and far more
powerful. There is a point where
major powers have to defend their
own interests and not rely on the
military capacity and sheer guts
of a country the size of Maryland.
Until they do, the reign of terror
Various political campaigns
have used the phrase "now more
than ever" in urging votes for this
or that candidate. It's a good
phrase and one that applies to
visiting Israel now.
It is clearly no accident that re-
cent terrorist actions have taken
place at airports. The PLO and its
allies want to scare Americans out
of travelling abroad and they cer-
tainly want tourists to think twice
about going to Israel. Those are
goals which all of us can help
There is no reason not to visit
Israel. It is the one country in the
world that has an effective anti-
terrorist policy, one that is fur-
thered by a population that has
learned how an alert citizenry can
deter attacks. Israel's airline El
Al, is as 60 Minutes recently
pointed out the world's most
secure airline. In short, there is
little risk in travelling to Israel.
And there are many good
reasons for visiting Israel. Prime
among them has to be the sense of
assurance that actually being in
Jerusalem and Tel Avjv, conveys.
The country 'js' the,re! It is alive
and vigorous,. And if is undaunted
by terrorists and their threats.
But Israel, the country, is all too
easily lost amidst the bad news
about terror HtUu-ks, HAM missile
emplacements, and a ''peace pro-
cess" that seems to be going
nowhere. There is only one way to
find it. And that is by going there.
Now more than ever.

Entering the World of the Hasidim
Holy Days: The World of a
Hasidic Family. By Lis Harris.
Summit Books, 1230 Avenue of
the Americans, New York, NY
10020. 266 pages. $18.95.
Reviewed by Samuel Heilman
According to the brief note at
the back of this slim but elegant
and in many ways touching book,
Lis Harris is identified as a staff
writer for The New Yorker, living
in New York City with her hus-
band and two sons. But in the
preceding pages, most of which
appeared first as a series of ar-
ticles in the magazine where she
works, Harris presents herself as
well as something of a Jewish
seeker, a woman fascinated by but
largely ignorant about Hasidim,
that exotic looking group of out-
siders who, although living in
their own insulated communities,
have become a ubiquitous feature
of Jewish existence for over a
Harris says she was stimulated
in her quest to pursue the Hasidim
by an experience as a child of fin-
ding a picture of what must have
looked like a Hasid in a box of old
family photos and after asking her
mother who it was learning that it
was "nobody in our family." Ap-
parently, Harris was not com-
pletely persuaded by this easy
dismissal. Underneath its docu-
dramatic approach, this book
describes hef continuing search
for an attachment to that picture
and to the Hasid she saw in it.
Of all the many sects of
Hasidim, Harris finds that those
who call themselves Chabad or
Lubavitch Hasidim, and in par-
ticular a family in which the
female head was a newcomer to
the Hasidic way of life, are willing
to accept her inquiries and
presence. And so for several years
(we never really learn exactly how
many or how often) she spends
time with them, discovering that
beneath the exotic front is a world
of meaning, a Jewish life infused
with spirit and practical
To her credit, Harris gets into
some of what she observes. She is
not the cold observer but one in
touch who lets herself try a varie-
ty of experiences, including a par-
ticularly striking one in which she,
like other Orthodox Jewish mar-
ried women, immerses herself in
the mikveh or ritual bath. Her sen-
sitive yet objective account of that
experience is certainly one of the
book's high points, and perhaps
more than anything else makes
reading this book a memorable ex-
perience. No one else has so cap-
tured the experience of this an-
cient ritual in modern terms.
And yet while in all this there is
a finely textured and engrossing
book, it leaves some questions tan-
talizingly unanswered. Harris
makes us understand that she
moved between her world in
Manhattan and the Jewish
universe in Brooklyn. But that
kind of transition, which she did
again and again, could not have
been without strain. What about
that husband and family she left
behind at times? We hear about
them only in passing; how did they
react to all this? And what kept
Harris going back again and
again? Why did she stop in the
end? To be sure this is supposed to
be a book about the Hasidim, but
because Harris has so involved
herself in their lives, she cannot
simply disappear back into the ca-
nyons of Manhattan without so
much as a word, leaving behind
the world of the Hasidim "beam-
ing" at her.
Finally, while this book reveals
a great deal about Lubavitch
Hasidim, it seems to skirt the
question of its continuity. Harris
tells us the Lubavitcher Rebbe,
Menachem Mendel Schneerson,
the sect's leader, has no children
or heirs. He is a man in his

eighties and although vital and
vigorous, not beyond human frail-
ty and mortality or is he? Some
followers note that we are in a
messianic age, and those in the
know point out that when the
Rebbe ends his addresses to his
followers with the obligatory
prayer that "the Messiah, may he
come speedily in our time," he
adds the Hebrew letters "mem"
"mem" and "shin" may also be
understood as an acronyn, the in-
itials of "Menachem Mendel
Schneerson." Did Harris, one
wonders, miss the biggest secret

Modern Pioneers Settle the Land at Kibbutz Yahel
By Edward I. Lending
Special to the Federation
KIBBUTZ YAHEL, Israel's
first Kibbutz to be sponsored by
the Reform Movement, is a little
garden enclave abutting Jordan's
foothills in the southern reaches of
the Negev Desert. It sits about 50
miles north of Eilat. Summertime,
the remorseless sunshine is
purgatorial; winters, the chill is
penetrating, and shuddery.
We've been on a commuting
basis with this gallant community,
my wife Florie and I. Our
familys's there. Lloyd and Erica,
and their paragon of a girl-child,
Chava, whose second birthday we
recently celebrated there.
Founded in 1977, YAHEL now
numbers about 130 permanent
residents, including their 35 off-
spring. They are youthful
emigre's from mainly the
U.S.A., England, Holland, South
Africa, Australia, and Italy, plus a
cadre of native Israelis.
Aided by a transient comple-
ment of visiting volunteers,
YAHEL husbands a herd of 225
cows (milked thrice daily) ... a
65-acre expanse of date palms ...
a 40-acre pomelo grapefruit or-
chard ... a 10-acre table-grape
vineyard .. comparable acreage
for onions, melons and fodder
crops and a screened-in acre
for fragrant baby's breath
The fruit and flowers are
targeted, largely, for export to

markets ... the dairy stuff the

desert tours for their hundreds of

evolutionary drama. The fairly
rugged itineraries are broken up
with visits to fascinating locales
like legendary King Solomon's
mines, and the Hai-Bar Zoological

back. Hai-Bar's expanse has been
painstakingly stocked with most
of the creatures described in the
Bible. Here, they feed, breed, and

Finally, there is the computeriz-

One is tempted to the conclusion
that Yahelniks must be slaving
away, even as did our ancient
ancestors in Pharaonic Egypt.
Well, slave they may, but flayed
they ain't. One is unaware of
overseers or orders. Discipline
seems self-imposed. And the labor
seems to get done with a palpably
satisfying sense of achievement.
The work-week routines come
to an abrupt end (all but vital ser-
vices) mid-afternoons Friday. Kib-

their respective jobs. The men
mostly unshaven, the men and
women both looking weather-

Some head for the Erev Shab-
bat services. The ritual is as
democratic as all the other aspects
of KIBBUTZ YAHEL life. No
platform, pulpit, or dais ... no
rabbi, cantor, or choir. The con-
gregants themselves take seem-
ingly random turns in leading the
recitals of prayers and the chan-
ting of hymns. The voices are
earnest, and unexpectedly
tuneful; the atmosphere
devout. (Even this committed
agnostic finds the religious aura

outside on the paved patio in
animated conversation, halted by
loud-speakers emitting the first
sounds of a stream of Israeli and
foreign folk dances. Dan Hachen,
a multi-talented professional folk
dancer, leads them in an ecstatic
whirl through the increasingly in-
tricate dance patterns, in the
glowing light of a luminous, (and
surely) quizzical moon .. .
These flushed dancers have
made the desert bloom. "Made the

off the tongue with deceptive
ease. The desert is not readily
tamed. Throughout recorded

Save for Israel, where the
sterile sands have been forced to
yield high-quality crops. Israel
showed the world the miracle of
drip irrigation. How to water and
fertilize sand-sown plants with
mere droplets of HsO and fer-
tilizer. And how to fight the im-
placable desert for its caches of
water and win.
At YAHEL, that was an epic
battle. Wells were drilled down in-
to the earth's crust for meter
after discouraging meter of nu-
bian sandstone. The oil rigs (re-
quired for the purpose) had to
penetrate to a depth of a whole
kilometer before the desert ceded
its secret waters. It turned into a
pyrrhic victory ..
The water liquified the sand-

which promptly sealed up the
drip-holes in the irrigation hoses.
The Kibbutz appealed to the Na-
tional Water Administration
(TAHAL) for help. TAHAL
engineers designed systems for
treating the iron-saturated water
with permanganates, and for
aerating and the oxydizing now
separated metal. Then they
designed a plant for the specific
purpose of filtering out the rusts,

annual rainfall is a mere one-and-
a-half inches. But YAHEL's crops
don't thrist now; they thrive!
Alas, however, in the modern
world, thriving agriculture rarely
makes for a successful economy.
Production coats are too high;
competition, too fierce; profit
margins too low. Yahet finds
itself, after all the struggle and all
the victories, in the same
economic bind as do most farming
(There's no OPEC for oranges.)
YAHEL requires some sup-
plementing industry to make it.
Nothing grandiose. A product
or service that can be started up
with supporting technology, by a
cadre of a dozen to a dozen-and-a-

YAHEL will capitalize any ac-
ceptable proposition, and bring to
it decidedly tempting competitive
advantages: First, the unusual
character of its work force. A high
percentage of them are university
graduates, and technically train-
ed. All are bright and utterly
committed. Yet this skillful labor
costs out at a low $5 per hour, in-
cluding all benefits.
YAHEL s membership in, and
close access to, the European
Common Market means further
substantial economies in custom
duties and shipping costs. In addi-
tion, Israel is a preferred Pen-
tagon supplier, as much for its
highly respected quality stan-
dards, as for its close military and
political ties with the U.S.A.

Project Renewal Needs $65 Million
By Gerald S. Nagel
UJA Watch Desk Editor
Jews contributed $160.1 million
from 1979 through last week to
aid 56 distressed Israeli
neighborhoods twinned to U.S.
Jewish communities through Pro-
ject Renewal. But they must still
provide $65 million for the historic
project to fully succeed.
To enhance funding, United
Jewish Appeal recently reaffirm-
ed its determination to help
Federations meet their renewal
campaign goals. UJA will provide
additional speakers, consultations
and materials and encourage ma-
jor donors to aid neighborhoods
besides the one twinned to the
donor's home community. (The
Jewish Federation of South
Broward is twinned with two
neighborhoods in Hod Hasharon.)
On the program's progress,
discussions with representatives
of UJA, the Jewish Agency
neighborhood residents, and
Israeli government represen-
tatives whose agencies also serve
these neighborhoods disclosed
that, overall, Project Renewal has
been remarkably successful.
Indeed, neighborhood visits con-
firmed the testimony. Community
centers, new schools, paved roads
and cleaner streets have replaced
slum-like conditions. More impor-
tant, working-age adults have
training, job counseling and place-
ment; homemakers have learned
how to help their families cope
and to supplement family income;
youngsters have adjusted through
pre-schools; teeangers have un-
wound in athletic facilities; and
senior citizens have relaxed in
recreational and cultural pro-
grams. Residents praise the pro-
ject. Optimism has buoyed spirits.
And many friendships have
developed between U.S. and
Israeli Jews under the project's
aegis, bringing distant branches
of the world Jewish family closer
On the other hand, progress has
not been uniform. Not all com-
munities have met their fund-
raising goals: sometimes
neighborhood need was
underestimated or fund-raising
capacity was over-estimated; in-
variably, the Israeli economic
crisis intervened. Two years ago,
inflation was 200 percent a year,
depreciating dollars that had been
converted to shekels. One year
ago, Israel began to pare its
budget, but joblessness increased
and reductions of subsidies on
basic commodities, from a loaf of
bread to fuel oil, affected every
y budget. Initially, the

The special guest speaker for the
brunch is Dr. Gerald Meister,

Many Summit residents have
been taking an active role to
assure the success of the ac-

are moving ahead in high gear. Al
Martin has taken a lead in
organizing the Big Gifts drive.
Clara Baum is working hard to
turn out as many residents as
possible to the Shana event on
March 2 ($365 minimum gift). The
Women's Division Big Event on
Feb. 19 is assured a good turnout
from Summit under the leadership
of Shirley Cole and Ethel Sapiro.
Muriel Malkin is the chairperson
for the brunch on Feb. 9 at the
North Social Hall and is being
assisted by Frieda Richter and
HeJen Berkowitz. Members of the

NEW YORK, N.Y. The
United Jewish Appeal has col-
lected $400.8 million for 1985, the
largest cash collection of any
peacetime year in UJA history,
according to a special announce-
ment made recently by UJA Na-
tional Chairman Alex Grass.
Calling the record cash collec-
tion "a magnificent achievement
," Grass added that "it was a land-
mark year made even more ex-
traordinary by the fact that the
vast majority of communities
throughout the country exceeded
their 1984 cash remittances,
"Furthermore," said Grass, "this
is only a part of what was col-
lected, since millions of dollars
were utilized for urgent local com-
In citing cash highlights, Grass
mentioned that on December 31,
1985, the UJA received $36.4
million in cash, the larget amount
ever received on any December 31
since the establishment of the
UJA in 1939. In December, 1985,
$90.2 million was collected, the se-
cond highest amount ever receiv-
ed in any December. (Operation

higher total amount of $101.2
million received in December,
Grass paid special tribute to
Bernie Borine, the UJA's Na-
tional Cash Chairman, for his "in-
novative leadership and dedica-
tion in seeing a complex task
through to a successful
Grass also saluted the UJA
regional Cash Chairman who

tributed so enormously to our

Shomrai Guest Speaker Sen. Moynihan
Continued from Page 1
"Terrorism is not really to be stopped in the world. It's only to be con-
trolled," Moynihan said at the Shomrai Dinner.
He told almost 200 Jewish leaders that U.S. security forces encounter
"more victories than you know," but "we don't talk about it."
Moynihan at the Shomrai Dinner Dance reiterated his criticism of
Gramm-Rudman and its potentially devastating effect on foreign aid to
Moynihan, who gained a reputation as a staunch supporter of Israel
when he served as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations in the
1970s, said Gramm-Rudman will force drastic, automatic, across-the-
board budget cuts if Congress fails to make budget decisions.
He said U.S. aid to both Israel and Egypt which accounts for 40
percent of the U.S. foreign and allocation would likely be slashed by
approximately one-third in the coming years. Israel's $3 billion alloca-
tion would be cut to $2 billion as a result of Gramm-Rudman.
"When the $3 billion becomes $2 billion, where will the other $1
billion come from?" Moynihan asked at the Shomrai Dinner. "Your con-
tributions are absolutely essential, but they don't come to $3 billion.
"It has to come out of the public purses," Moynihan said.
"We have embarked on a budgetary process that's going to seriously
undermine our foreign policy in the Middle East," Moynihan said, ad-
ding that the U.S. would have to "go back on some of (its) commitments
from Camp David."
Dr. Peter Livingston, co-chairman of the Shomrai Dinner Dance, said
Moynihan understood the essential need for the United Jewish Ap-
peal/Federation fundraising efforts.
"A $l-billion cut in foreign aid to Israel would be more than
devastating. We have to do more than our share," he said.
Peter and Ellen Livingston were the chairpeople of the Shomrai Din-
Mrs. Livingston said Sen. Moynihan's insight into the issues facing
the Middle East and Israel brought a special urgency to the Shomrai

Kirkpatrick Wins Jabotinsky Award
NEW YORK Ambassador
leane J. Kirkpatrick, former
United States envoy to the United
Nations, affirmed recently in New
York that "every vote I cast on
issues related to Israel in the
United Nations was cast with the
full approval of President Reagan
- No one should have any doubt
about that." Ambassador
Kirkpatrick made these remarks
during awards ceremonies for the
1985 $100,000 Jabotinsky Prize as
co-recipient with Operation
Moses, the rescue mission that
brought 10,000 Ethiopian Jews to
Mrs. Kirkpatrick will be the
guait speaker the Community
Pacesetter Dinner Dance on Feb.
In her address on the issue of
Israel, the United Nations and
'nplications for U.S. Foreign
Policy," Mrs. Kirkpatrick stress-
ed the need for the U.S. govern-
ment to speak forcefully in the
1 '.N. in support of Israel.
"We should never accept any at-
tack on the United States relation-
ship to Israel and we must always
apply inside the U.N. the same
principles and policies we adopt
.aside the world body," she said.
In an apparent reference to the
Israeli raid on PLO headquarters
in Tunis, Ambassador Kirkpatrick
declared, we should never
characterize as aggression any act
taken is self-defense resulting
from a prior act of violence."
Eryk Spektor, chairman of the
Jabotinsky Foundation, cited Am-
bassador Kirkpatrick for her
"valiant suport of Israel and the
Jewish people. During her tenure
at the United Nations, Mrs.
Kirkpatrick spoke out tirelessly
and eloquently in the face of cons-
tant hostility and harassment."
The award to Operation Moses,
Spektor said, "affirms the crucial
importance of rescuing
beleaguered Jews of the diaspora.
This rescue mission embodies the
spirit of Ze'ev Jabotinsky who in
the late 1930s warned the Jews of
Europe to flee the impending Nazi
holocaust." The Operation Moses
award funds will be used to create
50 $1,000 scholarship at Israeli in-
stitutions of higher learning for
young Ethiopians Jews brought to
Israel on Operation Moses. The
scholarships will be administered
by the three Jabotinsky Prize
judges who reside in Israel.
In the award ceremony's
keynote address, Morris B.
Abram, vice chairman of the
United States Commission on
Civil Rights and Chairman of the
National Conference on Soviet
Jewry stated, "Jeane Kirkpatrick
by intelligence, integrity and
backbone, has restored the United
States as a world power in the
United Nations; and by doing so,
she has made a mighty contribu-
tion to freedom everywhere and
to Israel's security."
Abram described Operation
Moses as "the only redemption of
an African people in a decade in
which hundreds of thousands of
Africans have been slain in Ugan-
da and Nigeria alone. This modern
exodus was carried out in the best
Jewish tradition and with the skill
we are accustomed to expect in
Israeli operations, whether for
rescue or rehabilitation."
Special messages were read to
the audience of several hundred
national and local leaders by Max
Green, special assistant to Presi-
dent Reagan and Herbert
Rickman, assistant to New York
City Mayor Koch. Other greetings
from Vice-President Bush, New
York Governor Mario Cuomo and
former Israeli Prime Minister
Menachem Begin were also read.
The Jabotinsky Prize-Defender
of Jerusalem Award, which is
given for "extraordinary efforts
in defense of the rights of the
Jewish people," was inaugurated
Former SS Officer to be Deported
WASHINGTON (JTA) The
U.S. Board of Immigration Ap-
peals (BIA) has rejected the ap-
peal of Reinhold Kulle, a former
SS guard leader at the Gross-
Rosen concentration camp who
was ordered deported in 1984 by
the Federal Immigration Court in
Chicago. In a rare move, the BIA
also took action that is expected to
result in the cancellation of
Kulle's social security benefits.
Kulle, 65, admitted during his
1983 trial that he had served dur-
ing World War II as an officer in
the Totenkopf (Death's Head) divi-
sion of the Waffen-SS at the
notorious Gross-Rosen camp in
In affirming the lower court's
deportation order, the BIA noted
that Kulle's SS service "primarily
consisted of being a guard and
training guards who made the
brutal Nazi concentration camp
system achieve its goals." Some
100,000 civilian inmates and
Allied POWs perished at Gross-
Although the lower court had
found Kulle deportable solely on
the basis of his "assistance in Nazi
persecution," the BIA ruled that
the evidence established that he
was deportable on the additional
ground that he had obtained his
U.S. immigration visa by
fraudulently concealing his war-
According to World Jewish Con-
gress general counsel Eli Rosen-
baum, who was co-counsel for the
government at the 1983 trial
while serving as a federal pro-
secutor with the Justice Depart-
ment's Office of Special Investiga-
tions, this last aspect of the BIA's
decision has special significance.
Rosenbaum explained that the fin-
ding of fraud means that when
Kulle is finally deported, he will
lose his entitlement to social
The Kulle case highlights the
need for the enactment of legisla-
tion that would directly revoke
the social security benefits of pro-
ven Nazi war ciminals, Rosen-
baum said. "It is the height of in-
decency to use the contributions
of hard-working Americans, in-
cluding thousands of Holocaust
survivors, to fund the retirement
dreams of those who helped
perpetrate Hitler's genocidal
bloodbath," he asserted.

How to Choose
Your Drinking Water
Mountain Valley comes from a natural spring lo-
cated in virgin timberland at Hot Springs, Ark.
The water rising in the spring today fell as rain 3500
years ago, long before pollution.
You'll like it from the first sip. Its taste reflects the
natural spring source.
Mountain Valley, bottled constantly for 112 years, is
the only water popular across the nation.
The main minerals are calcium and magnesium,
ideal in water. It contains so little sodium it is used in
a salt-free diet.
Mountain Valley is so light on the system, one
glassful invites another.

What is the American Jewish Congress?
We are a Jewish human rights and legal action organization, founded
nearly 70 years ago. Our original aims were to strive tor the creation ofa
lewish homeland in Palestine, to fight all forms of inequality, discrimina-
tion and anti-Semitism; to strengthen ties between Jews of America and
lews throughout the rest of the world
That was 70 years ago. What about now?
Our goals are the same, but the issues have changed. Our support
of Israel is unqualified and fundamental. We have been, and remain, an
integral part of the Mid-East peace process. At home, we are not afraid
to denounce the bigotry of a Louis Farrakhan or strive to eliminate, in
the courts and out, all forms of racism, bigotry, discrimination and anti-
What does this have to do with travel?
In our 40th anniversary year we determined that a concrete demon-
stration of our concern for, and interest in, world Jewry would be to give
our membership the opportunity of traveling to Israel and many other
countries with Jewish communities. Since then, we have become the
world's largest Jewish travel program.
What is so special about traveling with AJCongress?
Our tours arc renowned for excellence, sophistication, inncwation,
style and unrivaled value. Our members travel together, never with com-
mercial tour groups. Everywhere we go. we arrange unusual and special
events, briefings on local Jewish life, meetings with Jewish communities
plus visits to each country-'s most popular sites and attractions

The Israel Friendship
Camp, which brings toge-
ther North American and
European youth with young
Israelis for a unique cultural ex-
change, has announced its third
summer session in Israel. The
Israel Friendship Camp, founded
in 1984, is the realization of a
dream of Edgar M. Bronfman,
president of the World Jewish
Congress and benefactor of the
camp. Applications are now being
accepted for those in grades 7-11
who are seeking "unusual oppor-
tunities for self-growth, discovery
and friendship," according to
camp director Richard Herman.
"We're looking for
independent-minded and adven-
turesome kids," says Herman.
The six-week camp, which begins
July 7, will be held on a 500-acre
campus near the ancient Mediter-
ranean port of Ashkelon, close by
the nature reserve Nitzanim.
"There are very powerful con-
nections made here," says Her-
man, who will be directing the
camp for the third straight year.
The camp, with its combination of
travel, and family/kibbutz stays,
differs markedly from most
American-based programs in
Israel, which tend to take the
form of group tours.
"We're not a homogenous
group," he says, "We take kids
from all parts of the spectrum
some with strong religious
backgrounds, some with little or
no experience of Judaism or Israel
and provide them with oppor-
tunities to grow and explore. And
to grow you have to take risks, in-
tellectuality and emotionally."
The camp's program involves
intensive interaction with Israelis
of all sorts. Joining the 100
campers from North America and
Europe are 50 Israeli teenagers.
The group spends a month and a
half living side-by-side, sharing
their experiences from their
respective cultures. This sharing
forms lasting bonds. In a further
interaction of cultures, campers
spend a weekend with Arab
families in nearby communities.
"This is a particularly powerful
experience," says Herman. "We
have fun, and together we make
discoveries which break down
Group activities include camp-
ing, rock climbing, river tubing,
swimming, caving and ar-
cheological expeditions, visiting
with Druze and Bedouin families,
sports, arts, crafts, music, drama
and cultural programs. A
"luminaries program" brings to
the camp political and cultural
figures of international
The Israel Friendship Camp
also offers latitude for individual
revelations. The following are ex-
cerpted from journals kept by
campers as well as a letter from
the mother of a 1985 camper:
"While others did the moshav
and kibbutz stays, I went for five
days to meet my grandmother and
uncles for the first time!"
"I feel privileged just being in
Israel, something I've dreamed of
all my life."
'"I shared my amazement and
ideas with a very special group of
kids, my new friends."
"I loved learning about my
religion and culture and about
"My son seemed very much
more mature and together after
his Israel experience than before.
(He liked the dormitory experience
'and the kids, and loved the travel
and the physical challenge. He felt
enriched by the new experiences,
the participation in what was to
him a largely exotic culture. His
father is non-Jewish and I am a
non-observant Jew beyond
celebrating Hanukkah, attending
a Seder and eating Hamantochen
on Purim, we don't do much yet
his Israel experience made him
feel actually Jewish. I think for
the first time. Certainly the sum-
mer broadened and deepened his
awareness and knowledge of the
world. "I would have hated
Arabs," he said, "but we met
some in Jerusalem and they came
back and stayed at camp for a few
days and I got to know them; they
were nice guys."
The Israel Friendship Camp
takes a pluralistic approach to the ,
religious experience. Oppor-
tunities for traditional observance
are supervised by Rabbi Michael
Paley, director of Hillel at Dart-

From the time he left Russia,
the saga of events leading up to
the time he came to Hollywood,

was full with public acceptance

about the release of the refuseniks

Misha Alexandrovich speaks
eleven languages Russian, Yid-
dish, Hebrew and Italian fluently.
The rest are for the arias and
opera. Thus, through his familiari-
ty with those additional languages
he is able to give genuine feeling
for the words and the lyrics. A
great deal of his time was spent as
a lyric tenor in the Russian opera.
His career came to him in an
unexpected way. After years of
religious study, Alexandrovich
became a cantor in a synagogue in
The best compliment he receiv-
ed in 50 years on the stage and on

by the leading sopranos (of the

Soviet Jewry Update_______
1985 A Bleak Year for Soviet Jews
The year 1985 ended in a welter of speculation
regarding the fate of Soviet Jewry for the follow-
ing year. For some months, hopes of mass emigra-
tion as many as 200,000 had been mentioned in
some newspapers have been persistently bruited
throughout Western newspapers. And equally fre-
quently, authoritative denials from one official
source or another have dashed the feeling of op-
timism. On the very last day of the year, the press
reported that the Kremlin had given a definitive
"no" both to renewed diplomatic ties with Israel,
and a significant raising of the numbers of exit
visas for Soviet Jews. Even so categorical a state-
ment has not stopped many people from believing
that 1986 could be a turning point for Soviet
All that these claims and counterclaims have
done is create considerable confusion in the minds
of Soviet Jewry itself, and among those thousands
dedicated to helping them.
The facts are that in December, 1985, 99 Jews
left the Soviet Union, making a total for 1985 of
1,140, which although marginally up on last year is
still a pathetically small figure compared not only
with the numbers who want to leave, but with the
1979 figure of over 51,000.
Of those leaving the Soviet Union, only 348
opted to go to Israel, which must have deeply
disappointed the Prime Minister of that country.
Shimon Peres, who has this year announced that
he agrees with Mr. Gorbachev that it was wrong
for Jews to be given exit visas to Israel, and then
opt to go to other countries.
The level of harassment of refuseniks did not
decrease in 1985, neither under Mr. Chernenko,
Andropov's successor, nor under Mikhail Gor-
bachev, who followed Chernenko.
NEW YORK (JTA) The Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry has expressed its
gratification that Elya Essas, a
long-term refusenik and
religious activist, was officially
notified to report to appropriate
authorities to begin processing
for departure to Israel. Accor-
ding to the NCSJ, "rumors have
circulated for months about such
a possibility and considerable
concern had developed. While a
campaign for the Essas family
has been underway for years, it
is believed that the final decision
to allow the Essas family to
leave reflects the intervention of
Edgar Bronfman," the presi-
dent of the World Jewish Con-
gress. He and his associates had
intervened on behalf of Essas
and others when in the Soviet
Union. Essas was involved in
teaching Hebrew and Judaic
studies during his years as a
refusenik. His parents
emigrated to Israel in February
1. VLADIMIR LIFSHITZ Arrested Immediate Action
Leningrad refusenik, Vladimir Lifshitz, was arrested recently and is
being charged with "Anti-Soviet Slander," as Alec Zelichenok was
previously charged. The arrest was based on letters that Vladimir
wrote two years ago to Soviet Minister of Education in Leningrad and
Moscow, and to Andropov, protesting the refusal to allow his son, Boris,
into a university. His wife, Anna, was told to get a lawyer by Jan. 15.
She said that she would act as his lawyer but the authorities told her
they would not allow it since her life hung on a thread because she had
signed the same letter her husband and Zelichenok had signed "To
the Jews of the Diaspora." PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE Send
leters and telegrams protesting the arrest of Vladimir Lifshitz to: Pro-
curator Protopopov, Ul. Belinskogo 13, Leningrad, RSFSR, USSR;

2. ANATOLY SHCH AR ANSK Y has been sentenced to six months in
the labor camp jail (a prison within a prison). According to his wife,
A vital, he is being punished because he went on a hunger strike to pro-
test not receiving his mail. No letters have been received from Anatoly
in months. According to A vital, Anatoly had just completed a six month

but does not know when he will be permitted to leave.
4. LEONID (ARI) VOLVOVSKYTS appeal against his three year
sentence for "Defaming the Soviet State" was rejected on Dec. 5. His
