is about to beein! m The Big Event is about to begin!
For the past several months, the Women's Divi-
sion of the Jewish Federation of South Broward
has been planning an all-out extravaganza lun-
cheon for the 1986 United Jewish Appeal/Federa-
tion Campaign.
And now, less than a week from now, The Big
Event will take place.
More than 900 women from throughout the
South Broward Jewish community are expected to
attend the all-day event on Wednesday, Feb. 19, at
The Diplomat Hotel.
They will share in the day's theme Generating
... Generations and listen to NBC correspon-
dent Marvin Kalb and Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer of
Congregation B'nai Jeshurun in New York.
Kalb, an award-winning diplomatic correspon-
dent for NBC, is expected to speak about U.S.
foreign policy in the Middle East.
Kalb joined NBC News as chief diplomatic, cor-
respondent in July 1980 after 23 years with CBS
News. His broad range of responsibilities include
covering U.S. foreign policy at the State Depart-
ment and appearing regularly on NBC Nightly
News with Tom Brokaw.
Kalb is also the moderator of the Sunday TV in-
terview program, "Meet the Press," and anchor-
man, reporter and writer for NBC White Paper
documentaries on foreign affairs. For NBC Radio
News, he contributes his analysis of world affairs
on NBC's "Comment on the News," along with
John Chancellor and Edwin Newman.
Kalb has anchored NBC News specials on fast
breaking stories, such as the assassination at-
tempts against President Reagan and Pope John
Joining Kalb will be Rabbi Meyer, a founding co-
president of the Jewish Movement for Human

Shcharansky Freed in Prisoner Exchange
Anatoly Sharansky
"My people have been op

for 2,000 years. Yet in every
place in which they found
themselves, they said again
and again, 'Next Year in
Jerusalem.' Now when I am
farther than ever from my
people and my A vital, now,
when I face long hard years
of imprisonment, I turn to
my people and to my A vital

Anatoly Shcharansky's state-
ment at the end of his trial.
For Soviet Refusenik Anatoly
Shcharansky who has become a
symbol of determined
perserverance "Next Year in
Jerusalem" is now.
Shcharansky, after eight years
in prisons and labor camps on
trumped-up espionage charges
is a free man.
Shcharansky was freed Tuesday
morning as part of a major East-
West prisoner exchange.
Shcharansky, who was probably
the most prominent Soviet
Refusenik, was then re-united
with his wife A vital, who was forc-
ed to leave the Soviet Union just a
few hours after their wedding in
Jury 1974.
It was the
years that
time in nearly 12
and A vital
seen each other.
Shcharansky, 38, a well-known
human rights activist who was im-
prisoned in 1978, was part of a spy
swap which took place on the
Glienicke Bridge, which connects
the U.S. sector of West Berlin
with the East German city of
Potsdam. He was greeted by U.S.
Ambassador to Bonn Richard
Burt, and then taken to an airport
where he was put on a plane first
to Frankfurt and then to Israel.
Shcharansky's freedom comes
after years of appeals by world
leaders and especially by his wife,
A vital.
A vital Shcharansky, 35, who
emigrated to Israel in 1974, has
campaigned diligently for the
release of her husband as well as
other Refuseniks. She has appeal-
ed to world leaders to intervene
on behalf of her husband, who
received a 13-year sentence on
fabricated espionage charges. She
has met with two U.S. Presidents,
Ronald Reagan and Jimmy
Carter, as well as British Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher.
The Soviet Union accused
Shcharansky of spying for the
United States, a charge which
former President Carter called ut-
ter nonsense. Soviet authorities
had refused to consider releasing
Shcharansky as a political
prisoner because of the espionage
charges. )
But including Shcharansky in a
spy swap, Soviet authorities are
now able to lend credibility to
their assertion that he was a spy
for the United States. The U.S.
government apparently decided
after reports that Shcharansky
was in failing health that it was
more important to obtain his
release than to worry about Soviet
propaganda. .
Israeli Kiemlinologists in Tel
Aviv reported that the Soviets
might find it easier to release
Shcharansky in a spy exchange
than to allow him to leave under
worldwide pressure as a Zionist
Beverly Hollander, chairperson
of the Federation's Soviet Jewry
Committee, was ecstatic when she
heard that Shcharansky

Dead? More Tests are Needed
By Kevin Free
NEW YORK (JTA) The Justice Department sent to Brazil an ex-
pert in physical anthropology from the Smithsonian Institution to con-
duct additional tests of the remains exhumed from a cemetery near Sao
Paulo believed to be those of the notorious Nazi death camp doctor,
Josef Mengele.
The anthropologist, Donald Ortner, said in a telephone interview that
he did not want to comment on the outcome of the tests he conducted
during his one-day visit to Brazil last month. He did say, however, that
he was in the process of editing a report that will be submitted to the
Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations (OSI).
In addition Ortner said he believed the report would be incorporated
into a final report, scheduled for release this month by a team of 17
highly respected forensic experts who visited Sao Paulo last summer to
conduct tests to ascertain whether the body exhumed from a cemetery
at Embu, near Sao Paulo, under the name of Wolfgang Gerhard, is in
fact that of Mengele.
The preliminary report by the forensic team concluded that the body
uncovered in the cemetery was that of Mengele, who is reported to have
drowned in a swimming mishap at Bertioga Beach on February 7,1979.
The preliminary report stated that within reasonable scientific certain-
ty, the remains were those of Mengele.
However, Eli Rosenbaum, a former prosecutor with the OSI and now
general counsel of the World Jewish Congress, described Ortner's visit
to Brazil as "a dramatic development." He also pointed out that the fin-
dings of the preliminary report failed to mention what Rosenbaum
describes as one of the two "known unusual physical identifiers" that
would make certain the remains were those of Mengele.
Mengele became the subject of a massive international manhunt just

Weizman Meets With Mubarak To No Avail
By David Landau
And Gil Sedan
Weizman's hurried trip to Cairo
recently for a meeting with Presi-
dent Hosni Mubarak apparently
did little to advance any thaw in
Israeli-Egyptian relations or br-
ing a summit meeting between
Mubarak and Premier Shimon
Peres any closer.
Weizman, a Minister-Without-
Portfolio, recently briefed his
Cabinet colleagues on his talks in
Cairo. No1 details were made
public, but from what is known to
the media, he is believed to have
had little of substance to report.
He seemed, inadvertently, to con-
firm this when he said the
downbeat reaction to his trip was
due to unrealistic expectations.
"I didn't go to Egypt with a
shopping bag, and I didn't come
back with one," he told reporters,
adding, "I don't have much to
say." Nevertheless, Premier
Shimon Peres, said Weizman's
mission was important, and he
was pleased with it. Weizman
himself reportedly relayed a
positive account of his meeting
with Mubarak to Peres in Bonn.
The trip was supposed to have
been secret, but Weizman had
hardly landed in Cairo when the
Israeli media were reporting on
his trip. His mission, reportedly,
was to convince Mubarak of the
importance of the decision by the
Inner Cabinet on Jan. 13 to accede
to Egypt's demand to settle the
Taba border dispute through in-
ternational arbitration, but only
as part of a political package to
revive the normalization process
between Israel and Egypt. The
Israeli decision was received cool-
ly in Cairo.
Weizman also reportedly tried
to impress upon Mubarak the
urgency of a summit meeting with
Peres even before the political
issues between the two countries
are resolved. But the Egyptians
are adamant that a summit date
Gunman Who Killed Israeli Soldiers
Described As Jordanian Deserter
By Hugh Orgel
TEL AVI (JTA) The in-
filtrator who killed two Israeli
soldiers and wounded two others
in a Jordan Valley ambush in the
West Bank in late January was a
deserter from the Jordanian ar-
my, Israel Defense Force sources
have said.
The infiltrator himself gunned
down by Israeli reinforcements,
was identified by documents on
his body as Nasser Ibrahim Abdel
Aziz, 20. The IDF disclosed that
two other Jordan army deserters
were arrested in the West Bank
three weeks ago after they cross-
ed the Jordan River to seek sanc-
tuary in Israel-held territory.
Both were arrested in Nablus.
One, a West Bank resident,
allegedly was involved in the stab-
bing of an Israeli about six months
ago. He fled to Jordan, joined the
army there but subsequently
deserted and returned home. It
remains unclear whether the
deserter in recent clash was
escaping from the Jordanian army
and engaged in a firefight with an
Israeli patrol near Mehola to avoid
detection or whether his intention
was to attack IDF units.
According to some theories, he
may have gone berserk, as Egyp-
tian soldier Sulieman Khatar
allegedly did when he
machinegunned Israeli tourists at

Ras Burka in eastern Sinai last
Oct. 5, killing seven. Other
sources suggest the infiltrator
was on a sabotage mission or that
he might have precipitated a clash
with the IDF to derail chances for
peace talks between Israel and
Israeli military sources strongly
discount the possibility that the
deserter was aided or abetted by
Jordanian authorities or that he
infiltrated the West Bank with
their knowledge. The sources
stressed that for years Jordan has
tried to block terrorist infiltration
from Jordanian soil in order to
avoid friction with Israel.
Senior IDF officers said they do
not believe the incident signified a
change in Jordanian policy. They
seemed to regard it as an isolated
event, though the exact cir-
cumstances are still not clear.
Chief of staff Gen. Moshe Levy
said there was no connection bet-
ween the Jordan Valley clash and
the Israeli Air Force raid on
Palestinian terrorist bases in
south Lebanon. He said the air at-
tack was launched shortly before
the clash occurred.
Levy said, however, that the
IDF would continue its routine
patrols along Israel's borders, in-
cluding the road that parallels the
Jordan River.
Premier Shimon Peres, who has
returned from a 12-day visit to
Europe, told reporters that the
Jordan Valley clash and the air at-
tack in south Lebanon would not
affect the peace process with Jor-
dan. "I don't think it has affected
the peace process at all because
the Israeli position is well known.
While we try to achieve peace we
shall continue to fight against ter-
rorism," he said.
He added, "Whoever wants
Israel to stop fighting terrorism
should stop terrorism. But as long
as there are acts of terrorism, we
will take the necessary measures
to prevent it, to stop it and to
punish it."
will be set only after there is a
firm date for arbitration over
Taba to begin.
Weizman denied media reports
from Cairo quoting him as saying
a Mubarak-Peres summit was in-
evitable. He said he discussed the
possibility of a summit with the
Egyptian leader but no dates were
He said, in fact, that a summit
was not workable under present
conditions and that he went to
Egypt to find out exactly what the
political climate was there and to
explain to the Egyptians some of
Israel's views. He expressed con-
fidence that the arbitration pro-
cess would move forward. "I did
not expect one trip of mine to
change things by 180 degrees.
Those who expected this do not
understand life," he said.
"Every now and then it is wor-
thwhile going down to Egypt and
talk to the Egyptians. I think this
contributes to understanding the
relations and also to improving
them," Weizman said.
His apparent inability to achieve
anything of substance by going to
Cairo minimized domestic political
fallout. Likud hardliners who bit-
terly resent Weizman's involve-
ment in foreign policy matters,
especially with the Egyptians,
stopped protesting the trip when
the dove-ish minister returned.
Earlier they had attacked
Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir,
the Likud leader, for approving
the trip. Shamir confirmed that he
was informed of Weizman's inten-
tions beforehand and raised no
Mubarak Talks Tough on Mid-East
By Edwin Eytan
STRASBOURG (JTA) President Hosni
Mubarak of Egypt, recently addressing the
European Parliament here, took a tough stance
on Middle East issues. He called for an interna-
tional conference with participation of the
Palestine Liberation Organization, and stressed
several times in his speech to the 21-nation
assembly that, in his view, the PLO is the only
legitimate representative of the Palestinian
His speech contained no references to the
peace process with Israel or to his predecessor,
the late President Anwar Sadat, who initiated it
in 1977. It was broadcast live over Egyptian
In his address, Mubarak said Western Europe
could and should play an active role in helping
prepare an international peace conference on
the Middle East. He said the conference should
be convened without preconditions and should
be based "on the equality of rights between the
two sides and the necessity to establish an
equilibrium between Israel's right to exist and
the Palestinians' right to self-determination."
Mubarak also called for an international con-
ference on means to combat terrorism. He urg-
ed the international community to adopt str-
ingent laws on the subject. But he condemned
as "a grave mistake the tendency of accusing
the Palestinian people of terrorism or to accuse
certain religious sects." He was apparently
referring to the Shiite Moslems, who are believ-
ed responsible for most of the terrorist acts con-
nected with the ongoing crisis in Lebanon.

One of the issues contributiong "'
to the sour relations with Cairo is *
Egypt's refusal to give Israel the
report of the special commission *
of inquiry set up to investigate the Z
murder of seven Israeli tourists by _
an Egyptian soldier at Ras Burka
in eastern Sinai last Oct. 1. This
was one of the main conditions the
Inner Cabinet set for agreeing to
arbitrate over Taba.
The Egyptians said they would
give the Israelis only the verdict
of the Cairo court that convicted
the soldier, Sulieman Khatar, and
sentenced him to life imprison-
ment. Khatar was found hanged a
week after the verdict, an ap-
parent suicide.
The Egyptian Charge d'Affaires
in Tel Aviv, Mohammad Basiouni,
said on a Voice of Israel Radio in-
terview that the "dangerous
deterioration" of relations bet-
ween Egypt and Israel was partly
the result of the "strong criticism
in Israel on the Ras Burka affair."
He said the court verdict which
Egypt is offering to Israel con-
tains in itself all the pertinent
details of the investigation.
Weizman said later he recom-
mended to the Foreign Ministry
that it at least consider accepting
the court verdict in lieu of the in-
quiry commission's report. He
agreed with Basiouni that the
25-page court document covered
all of the pertinent facts. He said
the Egyptians had told him that if
Israel felt the record of the trial
proceedings and the court judge-
ment was inadequate, it could
renew its request for the inquiry
commission's findings.

peal/Federation Campaign has

Staging one "Big Event" is a departure from
previous years when several smaller luncheons
were presented by the Women's Division. This
year the Women's Division proposed holding one,
big community event for women throughout South
Broward. It is expected to draw many first-time
participants who have not previously been involv-
ed with the Federation or the campaign.
The many women who have worked diligently to
make The Big Event a success include: Sylvia

rangements chairwoman; Jo Ann Katz, hostess
chairwoman; Penny Warner and Lynda Wilentz,
seating co-chairwomen; Fran Haskin, decorations
chairwoman; and Janie Berman and Beverly

fascinating day."
"And we really have to thank the women who
have worked hard for months preparing for
Wednesday," Mrs. Ehrenstein said. "Sylvia Kalin.
Delia Rosenberg, Jo Ann Katz, Penny Warner,

A special aspect of "The Big Event" will be its
theme "Generating Generations."
"Our theme verbalizes the continuity of our past,
the commitment of our present and the energy of
our future for the continued successful survival of
our people. We are the products of our past. The
realities of our present and the potential for our
future," said Janie Berman and Beverly Shapiro,
creative consultants of the theme.
The "Generating... Generations" theme will be

Still Waiting
Regular readers of Near East Report may note that this is not
the first time that an NER editorial has carried the headline "Still
Waiting." We don't use it again today because it is a catchy
phrase it isn't but rather because it expresses our continuing
frustration over King Hussein's reluctance to sit down and
negotiate with Israel.
Perhaps the latest round of meetings in Europe will result in an
announcement of the King's determination to join Israel in
negotiations. But, so far, there is no evidence to that effect. On
the contrary, the King seems to be continuing along the path
toward rapprochment with Syria rather than Israel. We still do
not know what transpired during that meeting last month bet-
ween Hussein and Hafez Assad. We do know, however, that
Damascus was not dismayed about its outcome. That in itself is a
reason for pessimism.
Nevertheless, Israel's Prime Minister Shimon Peres remains
committed to the Jordan-Israel peace process. Speaking on televi-
sion on Jan. 17, Peres was upbeat. He conceded that King Hus-
sein has not committed himself to peace but asserted that he
would continue to work with the United States to bring Hussein
around. Asked if Hussein was incapable of making peace, Peres
said: "Such statements were made about all sorts of people in-
cluding Sadat, but it turned out that he hedged until the moment
that he stood up on his own two feet and walked," He said that he
would not give up on Hussein or peace. "I will pursue this," he
It surely has not escaped Hussein's notice that, in Shimon
Peres, Israel has a prime minister who is dogged in pursuit of a
peace settlement with Jordan and is ready to make concessions to
achieve it. On Oct. 1, however, Peres' term as prime minister will
end. He will be replaced by Vice Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
as committed to peace as Peres but far more skeptical about
the "Jordan option" and Hussein's intentions. Moreover, he and
Peres have very different views about the future of the West
Bank. For Hussein then, this is the moment for some hard
choices. He can come forward now or he can let the months go by
and then try to blame Shamir's alleged "inflexibility" for stalling
the peace process.
One can see the pattern re-emerging. In 1947 the Arabs re-
jected the United Nations Partition Plan which would have
created both a Jewish and a Palestinian Arab state. After 1947,
Arab spokesmen indicated that they should have acceted that
plan, as the Jews did. Today, Arab leaders think that they are
making major concessions when they hint at accepting Israel in
its "pre-'67" borders. Their claim is that they only want the "oc-
cupied territories" back. They pass over the fact that they
vehemently refused to accept Israel or peace back in those
pre-1967 days when they controlled the West Bank, Gaza, and
east Jerusalem. For the Arabs the grass has always been greener
a decade ago, or maybe two. They seem unable to recognize op-

Hoping Against Hope
By M.J. Rosenberg
Near East Report
The Reagan Administration is
hoping against hope that
something positive will come out
of Assistant Secretary of State
Richard Murphy's latest round of
shuttle diplomacy. It has been
more than three years since the
White House put out the word
that King Hussein was ready for
negotiations but, so far, he re-
mains on the fence. Nevertheless,
the Administration keeps trying
to entice him into direct talks with
Israel. It deserves credit for that
although not when its entice-
ment would come in the form of
weapons Jordan could use against
It is not easy reading the con-
flicting signs emanating from Am-
man. On the one hand, Hussein
tells U.S. diplomats and reporters
that this year could represent the
last chance for a Mideast settle-
ment and that he is anxious for
negotiations without precondi-
tions. On the other, he is cozying
up to Syria and endorsing Hafez
Assad's view that no separate
Jordan-Israel peace is possible.
Will the real King Hussein
please stand up? Not likely. The
Jordanian monarch prefers offen-
ding no one neither
Washington, nor Damascus, nor
Jerusalem, nor Moscow. Jordan is
a small country and it is
understandable that Hussein
would rather keep more powerful
players guessing about which way
he will go especially if each of-
fers inducements to join its
respective side.
Still, there are pieces of
evidence that Hussein is not quite
ready to normalize relations with
Israel. The government-controlled
Jordanian press is one place to
look for them. On Jan. 16, the Am-
man Satot Al Ska'b ran an
editorial on a subject fairly remote
from Jordan's concerns, the Taba
dispute which Israel and Egypt
have just agreed to submit to ar-
bitration. The editorial warns
Egypt not to "once again ... be a
victim of the Zionist concept of
peace." It refers to Israel not by
name but repeatedly as "the
enemy." It expresses outrage at
Israel's demand for compensa-
tions by Egypt to the families of
the victims of the Sinai massacre
in which six Israelis were
murdered by a deranged
policeman. "This cannot be ac-
cepted, nor can its logic be ac-
cepted by any rational person."
It concludes that the Taba ar-
bitration process is designed so
that Yitzhak Shamir will be prime
minister at the time of any change
in Taba's status. It calls this "a
clever ploy" because the "ter-
rorist Shamir .. (is) an intran-
sigent negotiator to whose mind
the map of greater Israel is still
attached just as it is attached to
the wall of the Zionist Knesset."
The slam at Shamir is nothing
new but it is worth questioning
how the Jordanians know that he
is an "intransigent negotiator" in-
asmuch as they never agreed to
negotiate with him when he was
prime minister. As for the "map
of greater Israel. ... on the wall
of the Zionist Knesset," there is
no such map. That map existed on-
ly in pre-Camp David Egyptian
propaganda and now in Syrian
propaganda. The Jordanians may
know better but, like the Syrians,
are mouthing tired lies about
Israel with convincing zest.
It is easy to dismiss a single arti-
cle in a single Jordanian
newspaper as not representative
of the prevailing Jordanian view.
However, as the
Jerusalem Post reported on Jan
8, anti-Israel attitudes suffuse the
Jordanian media. Two Amman
newspapers Ad Dustur and Ar
Ray report news from Tel Aviv
Haifa, and Jerusalem under the
headline "The Occupied Land "
Sawt at Sha'b uses the headline
"The Conquered Homeland." The
image of Israelis in editorial page
cartoons are right out of the Nazi
newspaper Der Sturmer. Accor-
ding to the Post. Israelis are por-
trayed as having "crooked
humped noses and the image of a
In short, Jordan's press is mak-
ing no effort to sell the Jordanian
people on the idea of peace with
Israel. On the contrary it con-
tinues to peddle anti-Israeli and
anti-Semitic stereotypes -
stereotypes which can help
energize a people into going to
war rather than to accept former
enemies as friends. Anwar Sadat
used to say that 90 percent of the
Arab-Israeli conflict was
psychological. If nations stopped
viewing each other as enemies,
agreements could be reached and
peace attained. He was right,
King Hussein may have personal-
ly accepted Israel's right to live in
peace and security. But his
government has made no attempt
to bring the Jordanian people to
that same conclusion. Until it does
it will be hard to believe that
Jordan-Israel peace is anything
more than a wish and a prayer.

tion, as Hartman himself con-
cedes, in A Living Covenant he
argues that an altogether dif-
ferent model coexists alongside
this one, and even predominates,
a model which affirms the values
of human autonomy and self-
sufficiency precisely within in-
deed, even because of the
parameters of halakha.
Drawing his inspiration in part
from human love, Hartman pro-
poses a Jewish "covenental an-
thropology'' in which G-d and the
Jew are mutually bound in a lov-
ing relationship, in which each
partner affirms the autonomy and
self-sufficiency of the other. Ever
since Sinai, G-d chose to forego
the dramatic, miraculous in-
tervention characteristic of Ex-
odus as a means of interacting
with the Jewish people. Such
unilateral and ultimately un-
predictable divine actions are
bound to foster feelings of
dependency and inadequacy in the
Jews, precisely the opposite of
what G-d wants for His beloved
Instead, G-d chose to interact
with His people through the
Torah, which (according to some
midrashic interpretations) the
Jews willingly accepted, and par-
ticularly through the processes of
halakha. The human dialectics of
Talmudic Judaism thus took
primacy over the interventionist
divine presence characteristic of
Biblical Judaism.
In this context. Hartman cites
the famous Talmudic story in
which Rabbi Eliezer summoned a
bat kol, a direct voice from
heaven, to prove his point against
Rabbi Joshua and his colleagues.
In what is surely one of the most
dramatic statements of human
self-sufficiency, Rabbi Joshua
responds to the bat kol "It (the
Torah) is not in heaven!" Through
the halakhic decision-making pro-
cess, says Hartman, the Jew
assumes ultimate responsibility
for his own fate. And that is
precisely what G-d wants.
For Hartman, this model of the
G-d-Jewish covenant has far-
reaching implications. He uses it
effectively to illuminate such
diverse and important topics as
Jewish prayer, G-d's self-limited
role in history, the problem of
Jewish suffering, and, of par-
ticular interest, the special poten-
tial of the modern State of Israel.
Drawing constantly upon
Maimonides for either proof or in-
spiration, Hartman vigorously
defends his own views against
such respected thinkers as a Rabbi
Joseph B. Soloveitchik and Pro-
fessor Yeshayahu Liebowitz, who
stress in their own ways the value
of submission and resignation
before G-d and His will.
A Living Covenant is a work of
rare significance. It represents
nothing less than the first attempt
ever to develop a theory of
Judaism which at the very same
time systematically embraces not
only the full range of V uiistic
value- ,at the ,nti
halakhic framework as well. It
takes with radical seriousness
such modern values as human
autonomy and initiative, freedom,
liberalism, tolerance and
pluralism, while claiming in a
Gopernican twist that it is precise-
ly the covenental halakhic
framework which makes those
values possible in the life of a com-
mitted Jew.
Moreover, Hartman does not
theologize off the conceptual top
of his head, a sin all too common
amongst modern theologians. A
Living Covenant is grounded in an
impressive array of Jewish
sources. Yet despite its obvious
scholarship, the book makes
riveting reading even for the non-
scholar. A Living Covenant is pas-
sionately argued, enormously
creative and insightful,
methodologically self-conscious,
and unusually Car-reaching in
scope. While scholars may ques-
tion Hartman's interpretation of
certain texts and worry about the
ultimate theoretical consequences
of what he himself concedes is a
selective reading of the sources,
the cumulative force of the argu-
ment is truly stunning.
While I can't say whether my
teacher. Rabbi Kaplan, would
have been pleased with Hartman's
book, I can say that no better por-
trait of a humane Geaaraj-MacAr-
thur with liberal values and tzttzit
under his uniform has everemerg

Soviet Jewry Update
Friday, February 14, 1986/The Jewish Floridian of South Broward-Hollywood Page 5
Bronfman: Include Soviets in Talks
After They Resume Ties With Israel
By David Friedman
Bronfman, president of the World
Jewish Congress has urged inclu-
sion of the Soviet Union in the
Middle East process, but only
after Moscow resumes diplomatic
relations with Israel.
"I do not think that the peace
process can achieve any perma-
nent results so long as the Soviets
camp ouside the tent," Bronfman
told some 800 persons attending
the opening ceremony of the
WJC's 50th anniversary plenary
assembly at the Jerusalem
"The road to peace runs not on-
ly through Washington, but also
through Moscow." he stressed.
But he warned that "clearly,
there can be no seat at any Middle
East table for the USSR if it does
not have full diplomatic relations
with Israel.*' He said that some
Arab states have urged Moscow to
take this step.
Bronfman said there was good
reason to hope that the improved
relations between the United
States and the Soviet Union will
broaden to include talks about
Mideast peace. He said they
should also cover human rights.
Bronfman took issue with a
statement by Morris Abram,
chairman of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ),
who in a recent interview with the
New York Times, said that if con-
ditions are not improved for
Soviet Jews, American Jews will
demonstrate against the arms
"We reject any linkage between
arms control and the Soviet Jewry
issue," Bronfman said. "We have
not, and we will not, make one
dependent on the other." He said
an arms agreement will benefit all
mankind, including Soviet Jewry.
Jerry Goodman, executive
director of the NCSJ, who is at-
tending the conference, was upset
by this statement. He said that the
NCSJ position is the same as was
stated to President Reagan when
Abram, Bronfman and others met
with him at the White House last
Goodman said this was, that
while there was no formal linkage
there is a linkage in that
American public opinion will not
accept an arms agreement if the
Soviet Union cannot keep its
agreements on human rights.
Bronfman reiterated that the
WJC position has always been
that the Soviets should allow
those Jews who want to emigrate
to do so, free the Prisoners of Zion
and allow them to go to Israel, and
let Jews who want to remain in
the USSR be free to practice their
religion and pursue their culture
without discrimination.
But Leon Dulzin, chairman of
the World Zionist Organization
and Jewish Agency Executives,
said "repatriation is the only solu-
tion for the two-and-a-half million
Jews of the Soviet Union. There is
no future for them in the Soviet
Union not as a community, not
as a national minority, not as a
culture or a religion."
Dulzin also stressed to the open-
ing ceremony audience that "we
must not permit neshira
(dropouts) to endanger the ex-
odus. What is at stake is not the
freedom of choice of a few, but the
future of an entire community."
Bronfman said he has "half-
convinced" the Soviets "that it is
in everyone's best interest to in-
augurate direct flights carrying
Jewish emigres from Moscow to
Tel Aviv."
Both President Chaim Herzog
and Jerusalem Mayor Teddy
Kollek urged the need for
tolerance and respect for
pluralism in their remarks at the

witness certain phenomena utter-
ly alien to the Jewish people, to
our religion and to our tradition,"
Herzog said. "These manifesta-
Peres Appeals to USSR To Free Jews
By David Kantor
Shimon Peres, the first Prime
Minister of Israel to visit the
former capital of the Third Reich,
used that occasion to appeal to the
Soviet Union, whose armies he
acknowledged contributed mighti-
ly to the downfall of Hitler, to
allow those5-Jews who so wish to
leave the USSR and to play a
positive role in the pursuit of
peace in the Middle East.
Peres, ended a three-day official
visit to West Germany, was
greeted at the city hall by West
Berlin Mayor Eberhard Diepgen.
Later, at a dinner in his honor, he
said: "Let me use this rostrum in
the city where Nazi leadership had
its formidable start and its
shameful end brought about by
the Red Army as well to call
upon the new leadership of the
Soviet Union not to forget the
common suffering of both of our
peoples Let those who surviv-
ed move to their destiny. Let our
people go and come."
His stav in West Berlin was
brief, but his itinerary was hectic.
From Tempelhof Airport he
visited the Israeli pavilion at the
Green Week Agricultural Fair,
where he stressed Israel's desire
to continue its commercial ties
with the European Economic
Community (EEC).
He placed a wreath by the tablet
commemorating the Holocaust
victims at the Jewish Community
Center here, remarking that the
Center served both as a sign of the
continuity of the great Jewish
tradition in Berlin and as a viable
link to the State of Israel.
He also visited the monument
erected in memory of the high-
ranking German army officers
who, hoping to end World War II
and destroy the Nazi regime, at-
tempted to assassinate Hitler in
July, 1944. All were caught and
suffered torture and death at the
hands of the Gestapo. That group
of officers, Peres said, was a sym-
bol of German opposition to
A highlight of his Berlin tour
was a visit to the old Reichstag
building. Observing the Berlin
Wall nearby, Peres referred to the
Jews of Eastern Europe. "This
physical barrier separates also
two parts of the Jewish people,"
he said. He added, "No wall can
block the hopes of the people to
get together and to exchange
ideas and views."
In a paraphrase of President
John Kennedy's famous remark at
the same spot more than two
decades ago Ich bin ein

Jerusalem, not from Berlin. I can

of 2,000 years with walls and bar-

man students to answer their

tions of intolerance and
fanaticism are sometimes im-
ported from abroad, often en-
couraged, and indeed financed
from abroad. The recurring crises
they bring about can also have a
most damaging effect on world
Jewry as a whole."
Herzog urged the WJC to ad-
dress itself "not only to the
disabilities suffered by Jews, but
to the proliferating menace which
is coming to expression within the
Jewish people. We must work
together to save our society, our
ethical tradition, our future in the
true spirit of our people."
Kollek, noting that Jerusalem
was the "indivisible capital of
Israel," said it can remain so "in
comfort only if it shows tolerance
and a feeling for plurality." He
said this is not to please anyone
else but "we owe it only to
ourselves" and to world Jewry.
What we want to have for
Soviet Jewry, a minority ... we
have to give to minorities here,"
Kollek said. "We cannot be in a
position where people will ask you
when you fight for the rights of
Jews everywhere, why don't they
do the same in Israel, why don't
they do the same in Jerusalem."
Kollek praised Bronfman and
his three predecessors as WJC
presidents for being men of
"independent views" with a "will-
ingness and the courage even to
criticize the State of Israel."
Leading Soviet Activist,
Family Arrive in Israel

Gorodetzky, a Leningrad
mathematician and a leading aliya
activist for the past six years, ar-
rived earlier this morning from
Vienna with his wife and family.
He is the second prominent
Jewish activist allowed to leave
the Soviet Union in less than two

mathematician, arrived in Israel

his wife, Pauline, 37, their four-
year-old daughter, and his wife's
mother, told reporters he did not
know why he was suddenly
granted an exit visa after years of
being denied one. He said it could
herald a change of Soviet policy
toward Jewish emigration, or it
could be a "miracle.''
"Jewish history is embellished
by many miracles and I am one of
these, if only a very small one," he
said. He has been, in recent years,
a central figure in the Soviet

Zionist since 1980, he was denied
an exit visa in 1983. He was plac-

Soviet Union be allowed to study
Other recent emigrants have

Jewish Agency Board to Meet On Feb. 18-19
New York, .. One of the most
comprehensive groups of interna-
tional Jewish leaders ever to
gather in the United States will
attend the Feb. 18-19, New York,
meeting of the Board of Gover-
nors of the Jewish Agency for
The Board of Governors, the
Jewish Agency's primary policy
making body, is comprised of
seventy-four members, represen-
ting Jewish community and
Zionist organization leadership.
Following the Board of Governors
meeting, Agency Board members
and staff will participate in Jewish
Agency Week, a series of visits to
Jewish communities throughout
the United States and Canada.
In a joint statement issued
recently in New York and
Jerusalem, Jerold C. Hoffberger,
chairman of the Jewish Agency's
Board of Governors, and Arye
Dulzin, chairman of the Agency's
Executive, described the
February meetings as "a unique
effort to bring the Israeli and
Diaspora leadership closer
together. A wide range of North
American Jewish leadership will
be able to learn during the New
York meetings how the Board of
Governors functions. During
Jewish Agency Week, Israeli and
Diaspora members of the Board
will be brought into direct contact
with the leadership of Federations
and Zionist organizations in the
Jewish communities of North
The Board of Governors agenda
will include consideration of, and
action on, the Agency budget,
which is primaryly expended
through the major program
departments: Immigration and
Absorption, Youth Aliyah, Rural
Settlement and Project Renewal.
Other topics for consideration will
include an update on the absorp-
tion of Ethiopian Jews, and plann-
ing for the June 22-16 Jewish
Agency Assembly in Jerusalem.
During Jewish Agency Week,
teams of Board members and
senior Agency staff will visit com-
munities to conduct briefings on
current Agency programs. These
meetings will involve local cam-
paign leadership, Boards of Direc-
tors of Federations, Jewish Agen-
cy Committees and Zionist leaders
designated by the individul com-
munities, in an attempt to in-
crease awareness of the Agency's
far-ranging activities.
In commenting on the decision
to hold the February meetings in
New York. Hoffberger and Dulzin
stated, "by becoming involved,
the broad based group of Jewish
leaders will contribute to a
deepening of the partnership bet-
ween Israel and World Jewry. The
Board of Governors meeting and
Jewish Agency Week offer oppor-
tunity for furthering our
understanding of one another and
our mutual responsibilities both
for raising of fund and their ap-
propriate use in Israel, through
the Agency's delivery of vital

NEW YORK, N.Y. Certain sociological trends that have
emerged over the last few years and some approaches to deal-
ing with them are featured in the February edition of "Jewish
Television Magazine," a monthly magazine-format program pro-
duced by the Council of Jewish Federations.
Hollywood Cable airs the program on Channel 14 (lo) on Mon-
days at 4:30 p.m. Selkirk airs the show on Channel 30 on Mondays
at 3:30 p.m. and Tuesdays at 11:30 p.m. JTM is sponsored by the
Jewish Federation of South Broward.
The latest program begins with a look at the phenomenon of
"singles" and presents possible ways of helping people meet one
another, updating the ancient efforts of the "shadchan" or mat-
chmaker to meet today's lifestyles.
Next, the alarming increase in the influence of cults and mis-
sionaries is examined, with some suggestions about what to do
about it.
Finally, the program turns to another phenomenon, the fact
that people are living longer and healthier lives than ever before,
creating a remarkable increase in what is now called the "well
elderly" population. The segment highlights a model program
that enables elderly people in Israel to combat loneliness and,
most importantly, to go on working and contributing productively
to society.
The program concludes with a bit of "comic relief in the form
of "Daddy's World," in which Paul Bodner humorously describes
the little joys and tribulations of family life.
The host of the series is film and television actor Stephen
Macht, currently best known to viewers for his featured role on
"Cagney and Lacey."
The 12 programs which make up the "Jewish Television
Magazine" series are made available to local Jewish communities
affiliated with the Council of Jewish Federations.
The Council of Jewish Federations is the national association of
200 Jewish Federations, the central community organizations
which serve nearly 800 localities embracing a Jewish population
of more than 5.7 million in the U.S. and Canada.
Established in 1932, CJF helps strengthen the work and the im-
pact of Jewish Federations by developing programs to meet
changing needs, providing an exchange of successful community
experiences, establishing guidelines for fundraising and opera-
>: tions and engaging in joint planning and action on common pur-
::: poses dealing with local, regional and international needs.

Is Mengele Really Dead?
Continued from Page 1.
months prior to the uncovering of what are believed to be his remains.
The Israeli, West German and United States governments coordinated
intense efforts to locate the Nazi war criminal, known as the "angel of
death" for his experiments on inmates at the Auschwitz death camp
during the Holocaust.
Most American Jewish organizations who have closely monitored the
hunt for Mengele through the years tended to support the findings of
the preliminary report. According to one source familiar with the foren-
sic team's efforts, the final report, will reach the same conclusions as
the preliminary report. But Israel has not officially closed the books on
the Mengele case. It has reportedly sent officials to Brazil to conduct
further tests of the remains and the personal belongings discovered at
the residences where he is said to have lived the last years of his life. A
report is expected soon from the West Germans, and then from the U.S.
on the Mengele affair.
But according to Rosenbaum, questions still linger about the forensic
team report, and in particular, its failure to mention at any point the
discovery of traces of the bone disease, sepsis osteomyelitis. Mengele is
said to have had the rare bone disease in 1926-27, and according to
Rosenbaum, the disease would not mask itself soon thereafter. He sug-
gested that it would be detectable in the remains uncovered in Brazil.
But this, too, remains in dispute. Ortner asserted in the interview
that osteomyelitis, depending on the degree in which it was contracted,
may not be detectable. Nonetheless, Rosenbaum said it was "extraor-
dinarily disengenuous" of the report not to have found any detection of
the disease.
It is unclear to what degree Mengele suffered from the disease, which
involves a serious inflamation of the bone marrow. According to a two-
part series on Mengele by syndicated columnist Jack Anderson, "A
medical school collegue of Mengele has stated that the osteomyelitis
was so severe that a piece of diseased leg bone broke off and had to be
removed surgically."
While Ortner said he did not want to discuss details of his tests in
Brazil, he did say he found certain features in the skeleton that required
further study. He was not part of the original forensic team and had on-
ly a passing interest in the team's work in Brazil. But he said he does
not expect the final report by the forensic team to be much different
than the team's preliminary findings. "I honestly don't think there will
be any surprises," Ortner said.
Other sources in the American Jewish community with close contacts
among the forensic team that was in Sao Paulo last summer suggested
that Ortner did not find any traces of the disease. These same sources
said Ortner's report, as interpreted by the JTA, would confirm that
there was no trace of the bone disease, thus confirming the conclusions
reached by the forensic experts.
A Justice Department official refused comment on the Ortner visit to
Brazil. Mike Wolf, deputy director of the OSI, told the JTA that the
department did not want to comment on Ortner's visit until he issued a
written report on his studies.
Anderson also reported that there are other nagging questions that
remain unanswered. He cited an internal document of the WJC which
noted that "Mengele had earned a PhD in anthropology."
It continued, "Mengele's family is among the wealthiest in Ger-
many moreover, he was in contact during his years in South
America with .. Nazi sympathizers." Therefore, the WJC document
stated, "Mengele was in a position from the standpoint of scientific,
financial and logistical resources, to pull off a fairly sophisticated
Anderson also wrote: "Leaving out the circumstantial evidence, all
that is left is a number of similarities between the remains and Mengele:
sex, height, age at death, the gap between the upper front teeth, the
skull/photograph match and the apparent matching of the few teeth
that were found to old dental records. 'Any minimally competent hoax-
ster' could have found a body with most of these similarities, and added
the rest, the WJC claimed/
Anderson's associate, Lucette Lagnado, who has done extensive
research on the Mengele issue, said in a telephone interview that the
possibility of a hoax remains. "If anybody could have, he had the exper-
tise," said Lagnado, who is writing a book on the death camp doctor.
"Mengele was fascinated with anthropology ... it was his passion,"
said Lagnado. Mengele, she added, "was a hoaxster." But Lagnado re-
mains convinced that when the forensic team issues its final report,
they "will make an extraordinary statement" that the bones exhumed
from the grave in Sao Paulo were those of Mengele.
Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles
said he was "99 percent certain" that the bones exhumed in Brazil were
Mengele's. He said this conviction comes largely from the fact that
there has not been a single definitive sighting of Mengele since 1979.

BETH SHEAN, Israel Most
visitors to this town of 14,000, 50
miles north of Jerusalem, come to
see ruins of a Roman am-
phitheater. They learn how
Philistines locally displayed the
desecrated body of the slain King
Saul. And they hear from guides
how PLO fighters used to shell
Bet Shean from Jordan, seven
miles to the east. But the Los
Angeles Jewish Community
knows that today the real story,
and main enemy, in Bet Shean is
unemployment. And, through the
United Jewish Appeal/Federa-
tion's Project Renewal campaign,
they are doing something about it.
Even when unemployment was
low nationally, just 4 percent two
years ago, it was high here and in
all Renewal neighborhoods. Now
that Israeli unemployment has
doubled, and will likely increase, it
is 16.6 percent in Bet Shean. that
means 753 workers here have no
Los Angeles Jews could have
rested on their laurels, but didn't.
Since 1979, when Renewal began,
they met a separate $3.5 million
goal for Musrara near Jerusalem.
But they also raised $2.8 million
for Bet Shean constructing and
staffing a child development
center, providing programs for all
segments of the local population,
and beginning to build a communi-
ty center. This year they are con-
tributing $400,000, a sum in effect
matched by the Israeli govern-
ment. And they are stepping up
their drive to reach their $5.5
million goal for Bet Shean.
Here are additional programs
they are funding to help curtail
local unemployment:
Vocational education, to
retrain workers and to convince
employers to remain in the town
Business skills, to help mom-
and-pop stores survive adverse ef-
fects of national austerity
Counseling aid, to assist
youngsters about to enter the
work force.
Additionally, L.A. businessmen
visit here often and provide ideas.
Bet Shean's population had
been declining since the late 1970s
when the spinning mill and other
key local factories began to close,
but it has stabilized now, instilling
hope. No longer do youngsters
automatically leave to compete for
jobs in Tel Aviv, 75 miles
southeast of here, as soon as they
are able to do so. Yet, problems
"I am tempted to see the entire
budget spent in the jobs area,"
Ami Shmuel, Bet Shean's on-site
Renewal manager told UJA
Watch Desk. "But the elderly,
small children and others need our
help too. In the long term, we
need a competent work force and
profitable industry and services to
finance our programs. In the short
term, we need local economic
development and provision for
current social needs."
David Gill, the L.A. Federa-
tion's Project Renewal chairman,
said, "We've helped a lot, but
we're not finished yet."
Bet Shean is just one Renewal
success story in progress. Neve
Israel and Shaviv, Herzylia, are
others. Jews have provided $5.2
million toward an $8 million goal,
through the Combined Jewish
Philanthropies of Greater Boston.
Facilities and services have im-
proved and the neighborhoods'
population flow to Tel Aviv has
And in Gil Amal and Giora, in-
land from Herzylia, the talk of the
town is education mainly im-
provements fostered by the part-
nership with the Jewish Federa-
tion of South Broward and the
Palm Beach Jewish Federation.
"The rate of student retention in
high schools has increased
dramatically," said Howard Bar-
ren, Renewar Chairman for South
Broward. In addition, he said:
"In 1979, 30 percent of
elementary school pupils read at
grade level; today 54 percent do.
"In 1979, 23 percent of first
graders did well in a psychomotor,
test, of motor action directly pro-
ceeding from mental activity; to-
day 60 percent do.
"Then, ten high school
graduates a year enrolled in a
university; now, 60 a year do.
"and we are determined to do
even better," Dr. Barron said.
"Such successes have encourag-
ed National UJA to increase its
help to Federation Renewal Cam-
paigns," said Jane Sherman of
Detroit, UJA national chairman
for Project Renewal. "But the
Renewal Campaign is not finish-
ed. We must fulfill our promise to
rebuild the 56 neighborhoods cur-
rently twinned to U.S. com-
munities and others yet to be
twinned. Help may be provided
through the local Jewish Federa-
tion, major contributors may also

NEW YORK In a major
breakthrough in the use of Jewish
video, the Jewish Media Service is
now offering for purchase 29
video-cassettes of Jewish educa-
tional interest to Jewish com-
munities in the U.S. and Canada,
Harriet L. Rosenthal, of South
Orange, N.J., chairperson of the
Jewish Media Service and
associate treasurer of JWB,
recently announced.
"These programs were chosen
for their educational applicability
for the North American Jewish
community," Mrs. Rosenthal
says. "The move on the part of the
Jewish Media Service to offer
Jewish educational video for pur-
chase was made to stimulate
greater use of video in Jewish
"As more North Americans are
buying videocassette recorders,

studying the feasibility of the pur-

since prices have dropped. Until
now, there has not been a substan-
tial number of video cassettes of
Jewish content We are hopeful
that educational institutions will
buy videocassette recorders and
use them in creative and exciting
"The Jewish Media Service is
not only making a record number
of videocassettes of Jewish educa-
tional interest available for pur-
chase," Dr. Eric A. Goldman,
director of the Service, adds. "We
also want to catalyze the produc-
tion of even more quality Jewish
Many of the videocassettes be-
ing sold are being made available
through a cooperative effort bet-
ween the Jewish Media Service
and several Israeli producers and
organizations. Most of these pro-
grams are being offered in North
America for the first time.
The Jewish Media Service, ad-
ministered by JWB, is the central
resource in North America for in-
formation pertaining to Jewish
audio-visual media. It was created
to strengthen Jewish education
and enhance Jewish identity
through more effective use of
films, video and television.
Sponsors of the Jewish Media
Service are the Council of Jewish
Federations, JWB and National
United Jewish Appeal. Associate
sponsors are the American Zionist
Youth Foundation, Anti-
Defamation League of B'nai
B'rith, B'nai B'rith International,
Jewish Education Service of
North America and CLAL, the
National Jewish Center for Learn-
ing and Leadership.
As examples of the joint effort
that went into creating the
videocasettes, the Jewish holiday
videos, New Year's Leave (Rosh
Hashanah), Candle Unto Candle
(Hanukkah) and Passover Adven-
ture were produced through the
cooperative endeavors of Jewish
Media Service and Israel Instruc-
tional Television, Kastel Com-
munications and WJUF of the
Jewish Federation of
Metropolitan Chicago.
Programs on Jewish life around
the world and in Israel, such as
Days of A%oe in Argentina, Good
Morning, Israel and Orchestra
were produced by the Israel Film
Service. Several of the programs
were produced by the Israel
Broadcasting Service, Israel's na-
tional television. These include
Enigma: Black Jews of Ethiopia,
The Jews of Ethiopia, Israel In-
dependence Day Variety, and a

Additional programs were pro-
duced in France and by North
American Jewish agencies such as
the Council of Jewish Federa-
tions, Jewish National Fund and
United Jewish Appeal. In the spr-

This, then, is a moment of opportunity and it is one that King
Hussein should seize now. If he refuses to do so he will be left with
nothing but nostalgia about those hopeful days of 1986 when
peaceful compromise with Israel seemed a possible dream. It is
his choice. Shimon Peres, joined by Yitzhak Shamir and the Na-

Student Assistance Grants
Provided by Federation
For the past three years, the
Jewish Federation of South
Broward has been providing
scholarships for students in the
synagogue afternoon schools. The
program, Student Tuition
Assistance Recommendation
(STAR), is an expression of this
community's acceptance of
responsibility for helping those
families unable to meet the cost of
a Jewish education.
A family may apply for tuition
assistance through the synagogue
of their choice, by filling out an ap-
plication that is reviewed
anonymously by a committee from
the Federation.
One response from a Rabbi
whose school received the STAR
grant is, "Through your efforts,
the children of my synagogue will
receive the finest Jewish educa-
tion that we can offer, regardless
of their financial abilities. Once
again your committee and the
Federation has distinguished
itself as the caring, concerned
body that the entire community
can be proud of."
Avis Sachs, who is chairperson
of the STAR committee, stated
that no child in South Broward
should be without a Jewish

Eulogy tor Challenger Astronaut
Resnkft Described as One Who
Heeded Call to 'Touch the Stars'
AKRON (JTA) Dr. Judith
Resnik, who died in the
Challenger space shuttle with six
of her astronaut colleagues, was
eulogized at a memorial service at
Temple Israel as "a daring
pioneering spirit" who heard and
heeded the call to "go upward,
climb higher, touch the stars."
Rabbi Abraham Feffer, spiritual
leader of Temple Beth El where
Resnik was Bat Mitzvahed and
confirmed told the approx-
imately 850 participants in the
service that "she achieved what
she had worked for and died doing
what she loved best. She left us
many achievements and much
love ."
Feffer told the participants that
before her first space flight in
1984, Resnik had stopped at his
office with her father, asking for a
blessing. "I prayed the traditional
Jewish prayer 'As she goes in
peace, so may she return in
Beginning his eulogy with a
two-line quote from Hannah
Senesch's famous poem, "Blessed
is the Match," the rabbi said that
Resnik "felt the need to extend
the horizons of America and the
world, to reach great heights, and
to enhance life on this planet
Earth She was the match and
the flame in which she was
UJA 1985 Campaign
Raised $637 Million
Grass, national chairman of the
United Jewish Appeal, reported
that as of Jan. 16, the 1985 Cam-
paign has raised a total of $637
million compared to $585.9 million
pjedged by the same donors last
year. This is a dollar gain of $51.1
million and a card-for-card in-
crease of 8.7 percent Grass said
he anticipated that the 1985
Regular Campaign would con-
clude with $660 million.
"Adding the amounts raised by
Operation Moses and Project
Renewal," he continued, "will br-
ing us to approximately $735
million. This will be a tremendous
achievement and I am indebted to
national and community leaders
for their outstanding efforts."
Reporting on Project Renewal,
Grass stated that $163.1 has been
raised through Dec. 31, including
$10 million pledged during the
1985 Campaign. He explained
that a special operational plan was
being developed by a task force
headed by UJA National Project
Renewal chairperson Jane Sher-
man to raise $65 million that
would complete the current finan-
cial requirements needed for the
inhabitants of Israel's distressed
Turning to the 1986 Campaign,
Grass reported that eight major
gifts events under UJA auspices
have taken place which involved
over 1,200 people from 60 com-
munities. Pledges came to $51.8
million, a 22 percent increase and
a gain of $9.3 million over the
amounts pledged by the same
donors in 1985.

Hon. Simcha Dinitz, M.K.
Israel's former Ambassador to the United
States, Honorable Simcha Dinitz will speak on
behalf of the Israel Histadrut Foundation at the
home of Dr. and Mrs. Barry Alter on Tuesday
evening, February 25th.
This Reception is under the Chairmanship of
Dr. Fred Blumenthal of Hollywood and Rabbi
Morton Malavsky, Deputy Chairman of the
Israel Histadrut Foundation Board of Directors
and Spiritual Leader of Hollywood's Temple
Beth Shalom.
Ambassador Dinitz has had a career of
public service spanning over 2 decades. He has
served as Minister of Information at the Israeli
Embassy in Washington, DC. and later he
served with distinction as Israel's Ambassador
to the U.S. He is presently a member of the
Knesset (Parliament) and a ranking member of
its Foreign Relations and Security Committee.
Dr. Barry Alter is a prominent cardiologist
in the South Florida area and he and his wife
Franne have been active members of the
Foundation's Broward Committee.
Feffer called Resnik "brilliant,
sensitive and compassionate." He
said she had "an inner beauty
the beauty of a sensitive soul and
a loving heart." A gifted musi-
cian, when she played the piano,
"there was more than technical
mastery you were privileged to
hear her poetic spirit expressing
itself," he said.
Although he had first met
Resnik when he officiated at her
wedding in 1970, he had heard
from her teachers that she had
graduated Firestone High School
here with an A average, and that
she was at the "top of her Bat
Mitzvah class" of 1962 and her
confirmation class of 1967 at the
Conservative Temple Beth El.
Resnik was a "goal-oriented
person," Feffer told participants
in the service. "It was as if she
heard an inner voice constantly
challenging her to greater
Although he had reasons to
believe her synagogue attendance
after leaving Akron was "ir-
regular," Resnik's "integrity, her
forthrightness and commitment
to truth was such that I wish
many of those who did attend ser-
vices regularly possessed and ex-
pressed" such qualities, he said.
The rabbi also addressed the
feeling he had heard voiced by
some people that Resnik was
"somewhat distant from our peo-
ple." He said, "Frankly, when a
young American astronaut still
calls her father 'Abba' and her
grandmother 'Bubbie,' that
astronaut is not too far from our
The service opened with a chan-
ting of the 23rd psalm by Cantor
Steve Stein of Temple Beth-El,
the Reform synagogue where
Resnik's father, Marvin Resnik, is
a member. The temple's spiritual
leader, Rabbi David Horowitz,
spoke briefly, saying Resnik
"would be with us forever."
Akron's Mayor Thomas Sawyer
and Ohio Governor Richard
Celeste praised Resnik in brief
remarks, and the city's third rab-
bi, Abraham Leibtag of the
Revere Road Congregation, read
another Psalm. Cantor Gedalia
Gertz of Temple Israel led the con-
gregation in the "El Moley

One hundred American teenagers
will be chosen to participate. They
must demonstrate strong leader-
ship qualities, constructive
organizational involvement and
suitablility for this highly selective
program. In Israel, they will be
joined by 100 Israeli high school

tions. This group, from highly
diverse cultural and religious
backgrounds, will spend ten days
together getting to know one
another through formal and infor-
mal dialogue, travel to important
sites of Jewish interest, and
recreational activities. They will
hopefully make lasting friendships
- not only between delegations
but also with other members of
tneir own delegations so that
leadership activities for the future
of our people will continue on both
sides of the Atlantic.
If you know a teenager whose
leadership qualifications and in-

convention, held in Toronto, On-
tario, Canada, included a series of
educational sessions based around
the theme of: "The more Torah -
The More Life."
USY, the high school affiliate of
the United Synagogue of America
has 20,000 members in over 450
affiliated chapters in Conser-
vative Synagouges throughout
North America. In a letter of
greetings to the Convention,
Prime Minister Brian Mulrooney
of Canada congratulated USY for
proving "... itself to be a signifi-
cant force in the promotion of
cultural and religious awareness
among Jewish Youth of North
America." Similar messages of
greeting and congratulations
were received from President
Ronald Reagan and Prime
Minister Shimon Peres.
Highlights of the Convention in-
cluded a stirring speech by the
noted author Gerda Weissman
Klein, about her experiences dur-
ing the Holocaust. Mrs. Klein

of over one hundred new members
of the Abraham Joshua Heschel

the Convention were during the
closing ceremonies, when the
delegates participated in the

Westminster Torah Scrolls. This
particular scroll is one of over
1,500 confiscated by the Nazis
during World War II in Slovakia

ed interest will be paid to holders
of Israel Bonds purchased in 1971
and 1972 who reinvest them early
in new Israel Bond securities,
David Sklar, South Broward
chairman of Israel Bond Cam-
paign, recently announced.
The Governement of Israel
recently agreed to permit holders
of these bonds who reinvest with
additional funds toward the pur-
chase of a new Israel security to
receive this advanced interest.
For example, holders of a $100
bond with a maturity value of
$180 can use it to purchase a $250
State of Israel Certificate by ad-
ding $70. In addition, maturing
bonds may be used to reinvest in
Current Income Bonds ($500 in-
crements), in the Individual
Variable Rate Issue Bond
($10,000 minimum), or any of the
other instruments offered by the
Bond Organization.
"This is a good opportunity for
many Israel Bond holders to
receive the maturity value of their
bonds before they come due, while
providing vitally-needed new
development capital for Israel,"
Sklar said. "Israel's success in im-
proving its foreign trade balance
through increased exports, its
wage and price control measures,
and efforts by Israelis in all walks
of life to put the economy on a
sound footing are beginning to
bear fruit"
Holders of 1971-1972 bonds are
urged to get in touch with the
local Israel Bond office for infor-
mation and assistance on advanc-
ed reinvestment procedures.
Telephone 920-9820.
Friends of Israel who have In-
dividual Retirement Accounts
(IRA's) can now make a purchase
of $2,000 of the Individual
Variable Rate Issue (IVRI) of
State of Israel Bonds for their
IRA's. The IVRI Bond is current-
ly yielding 7 % percent interest.
Stating that some 37 million
Americans place a minimum of
$2,000 each year in IRA accounts.
"All of Israel's friends now have
an opportunity to strengthen its
economy, receive an attractive
return, and enjoy the savings and
tax benefits of an IRA with an in-
vestment of $2,000 or more in an
IVRI Bond. With such an invest-
ment, everyone is a winner the
investor and the people of Israel,"
said David Sklar, South Broward
Bonds chairman, said.
The IVRI Bond's annual in-
terest rate is a minimum of 6 per-
cent plus 50 percent of the excess
over 6 percent of the average of
the prime rates quoted by
Citibank, the Bank of America
and the First National Bank of
Chicago each April 1 and October
1. The Bond matures ten years
from date of issue.
Like all Israel Bonds, the IVRI
Bond is a direct and unconditional
obligation of the State of Israel
which pledges Israel's full faith
and credit for payment of prin-
cipal and interest.
The Israel Bond Organiztion has
mobilized close to $7.5 billion
since its inception in 1951 to help
build every aspect of Israel's
economy. Of that sum, more than
$4 billion has been repaid by the
Israel Government to holders of
matured bonds.
The Bond campaign is a major
source of development capital for
Israel. Its proceeds, channeled
through Israel's Development
Budget, help to finance industrial
and agricultural projects, the con-
struction of highways and har-
bors, the expansion of com-
munications and transport, the
building of new towns and the
development of new sources of
IRA'S for Israel

American Jewish community is

amounts of new development
capital for Israel in the years
The Bond Organization is to be
commended for making it possible
for hundreds of thousands of
Israel's friends to invest in
Israel's future, and their own, in
one stroke. It is providing an im-
portant way for American Jews to
participate in a historic effort to
stabilize Israel's economy and
help guarantee its future.
The IVRI Bond annual rate of
interest is a minimum of 6 percent
plus half the difference to the
prime rate. It is adjusted twice a
year. More details and a prospec-
tus are available from the local of-
fice of Israel Bonds.
By fashioning a financial instru-
ment that is responsive both to
the needs of American friends of
Israel who want to do all they can
to help Israel and for their retire-
ment needs, Israel Bonds has
again demonstrated the kind of in-
novative thinking which is needed
to help Israel grow and develop.
At this critical time, when
Israelis are making great personal
sacrifices to help strengthen their
economy, the IVRI Bond for an
IRA puts it within everyone's
reach to strengthen their links
with Israel in a new and exciting
way and with a good rate of

Mrs. Hollander said Avital
Shcharansky deserves a lot of
credit because "she traveled all
over the world, using his name as
an example of the supression of
human rights in the Soviet Union,
and because of the public
pressure, he was released.
"She kept persevering and kept
his name in the forefront," Mrs.
Hollander said.
But despite the euphoria sur-

They questioned the Premier
about the recently produced play
by the late Rainer Werner
Fassbinder "Garbage, the City
and Death" in which a
character identified as a wealthy
Jew was depicted as a villain and
exploiter of the poor.
Peres said, "it is primarily a
German problem to fight anti-
Semitism. Whenever there is anti-
Semitism, Germans should be con-
cerned. It is tout awareness and
reactions that count. Anti-
Semitism in itself was never the
real problem, but rather the lack
of will and resolve of the
mainstream groups fighting it."
Peres was asked by a German
student at one point why he had
not become the poet he had hoped
to be in his youth. "I was not good
enough," he said. "Probably by
mistake I become a politician, and
it became too late to change. My
most important concern and
desire is to bring peace to the Mid-

thodox Jew who is the most pro-
minent recent emigrant from the
Soviet Union, has called on Israel
and world Jewry to seek a broad
improvement in East-West rela-
tions as the rine qua non for
Soviet Jewish emigration.
Ilya Essas, who changed his
name to Eliyahu when he arrived
in Israel on Jan. 22 with his fami-
ly, told a packed session of the
World Jewish Congress 50th an-
niversary assembly here that "if
relations are not good (between
East and West) we cannot expect
anything" by way of aliyah for
Soviet Jews. Essas, described as a
"bal teshuva," was an aliyah ac-
tivist in the USSR and leader of a
Jewish religious revivalist move-
ment there said to closely resem-
ble the Hasidic sects.
He was granted an exit visa to
immigrate to Israel after WJC
president Edgar Bronfman in-
tervened with the Soviet
authorities on his behalf. His
parents live in Israel.
Essas told the 800 WJC
delegates and their guests at the
session that for him the controver-
sy over quiet diplomacy versus
gublic activism was irrelevant,
oth approaches are required, he
said, in order to marshal the
forces of the free world to bring
their influence to bear on the
Soviet leadership.
only 79 Soviet Jews were allowed
to leave for Israel.
A real show of good faith by the
Soviet Union cannot hinge on the
release of one man, even a man of
such symbolic importance and
personal dignity as Anatoly
Shcharansky. Even as he is freed
from prison, and from the larger
jail of the Soviet state, other
Soviet Jews also guilty of the
"crime" of wishing to live as Jews
in the Soviet Union, or emigrate
to Israel, are harassed, arrested,
imprisoned. Until they, are free,
the world cannot be appeased by
this gesture, as much as we rejoice
at Shcharansky's release.
"people should not feel the pro-
blem of Soviet Jewry is solved.
There are many Shcharanskys in
prison camps throughout Russia,
and families that are not as pro-
minet as Shcharansky that still
need a voice to speak for them."
Shcharansky's release will now
give hope to the many others who
remain behind, still trapped in the
Soviet Union: to Jews for whom
he became a symbol through near-
ly a decade of imprisonment, and
to non-Jews, who were embolden-
ed by Anatoly's advocacy of the
idea that all Soviet citizens have
rights assured them under the
Helsinki Accords the Soviet Union
signed in 1975.
While he is an important sym-
bol, he is but one man. Moreover,
if the emigration trends of the last
few years continue to hold true,
then he will be but one of a hun-
dred or so Soviet Jews who will be
permitted to emigrate in
February, 1986. From a high of
more than 51,000 in 1979, the
figure for last year dropped to just
1,140. This past month, January,
